Relief Is Promised

In Solving County's Septic Tank Permit Problem


A permanent solution to Gulf
County's problems with issuing
septic tank permits should have a
permanent solution within three
weeks, Dr. Charlton Prather, direc-
tor of the public health division of
HRS for the State of Florida, told' a
group of builders, real estate people
and land owners last Thursday
night.
Dr. Prather came ~for a first
hand report at a meeting held in the
Gulf County Courthouse after prob-
lems with septic tank permits
became an obstacle of monumental
proportions for building, especially
along the coastal regions of the
county. Tuesday of last- week,.a.-
delegation of the same people met
with the board to tell horror stories
of problems they. were having
obtaining permits which was bring-
ing building to a complete halt in the
county.
Obtaining a septic tank permit
had been a comparatively easy mat-
ter, provided the state regulations
were met, but the process had
evolved into a massive system of
hurdles to be.jumped and re-jumped
before the permits could finally be
issued, weeks after application had
been made.
The septic tank permit problem
had evolved after Gulf County's
Environmental Health Diorector
was taken off the job after it was
found he was issuing permits which
didn't meet new state standards.
The inspector was removed until it
could be determined why the
sub-standard permits were being
made.
The county entered the problem
by calling Dr. Prather to a local
meeting, which was held Thursday
night.
Dr. Prather described the prob-
lem Gulf was having as a lack of
communication. He pointed out that

Killing


Dam Opponents Claim Proof of Position


Tommy Williams, a mem-
ber of the Dead Lakes
Management Board but a'
proponent of removing the
Dead Lakes dam, said he and
other people who favor re-
moval of the dam, have come
up with some ammunition
which makes their position
the only one to support, in
their opinion.
"First, the Corps of Engin-
eers didn't dig the Chipola
Cut-Off", he said. "The Dead
Lakes are a completely nat-
ural body of water which
need to be allowed to flow
freely in order to maintain
itself as nature intended", he
said.
In support of his claim
about the origin of the Lakes,
Williams showed a survey
and map copy, which is on
file in the Calhoun County
Courthouse which give the
field notes for the surveying
of Florida after it came into
possession of the United
States back in 1824. The map
shows the Cut-Off (and the
old St. Joseph and Iola
Railroad crossing the lakes)
on the map and refers to the


Cut-Off in the surveyor field
notes as a reference point for
measurement.

Commission and the Corps of
Engineers, Williams set out
to show a growing silt
problem and a repidly declin-
ing fish population.
According to the Corps of
Engineers records, silt in the
Dead Lakes sampled areas
has doubled between 1979 and
1981. One of the sampling
areas was 1000 feet above the
dam.
In addition, Williams says
records bear out the silt

Dead Lakes itself. "This

gable just a short while ago."
Williams said interest was
being generated in the prob-
lem all the way to the Florida
line because of the effect it is
having on the Chipola River,
which feeds Dead Lakes.
"There is no fishing on the
Chipola River north of
Clarksville anymore", Wil-
liams said.
According to the Game
Department survey of the
situation, shellcrxacker pop-
ulation has degenerated from


a population of 442 per acre in
1972 to 62 per acre in 1978.
During the same period of
time, largemouth bass had
been reduced from 72 to 40.
Both species showed a grad-
ual decline over the years,
showing the drastic decline
in 1978 wasn't just some
phenomenon.
The report also showed
that Apalachicola River
readings, which would have
the most effect on the Lakes'
level if the dam were not
there, have showed the water
level in the lakes would have
been below the level of the
dam 11 months during the
period of time from 1974 to
1979, inclusive. Last year, the
River was down to a level Of
less than two feet and the
Lakes showed the same
effect since the drawdown
structure was open, allowing
the Lakes to flow naturally.
The dam is designed to
keep a constant level, with
the River flowing over the
top of the steel sheet piling
structure.
Presently, the lakes are at

Jury Awards $940,000 to Father of Injured Child


Leroy Davis, Sr., was
awarded a total of $940,000 by
a U.S. District Court jury last
Thursday-$850,000 to pay
medical expenses for his
four-year-old son, Leroy, Jr.,
and $80,000 to compensate for
injuries experienced by Da-
vis himself.
Davis sustained injuries
which he has since recovered


from and his young son was
paralyzed in an accident with
a Port St. Joe fire truck
three years ago.
The elder Davis was
awarded $70,000 for his in-
juries in a March trial and
his young son was given a
verdict of $2.1 million for his
injuries. The Davis family
said this wasn't enough to


care properly for the young
boy, so they returned to
court.
Wording in the original
verdict was such that it was
construed the young boy
could claim none of his
$2.1 million award until age
18. The father had asked for
money to care for his son
until this time, which was the


basis of the trial last week.
The insurance company,
which is the City's represen-
tative at the trial, claimed
the verdict allowed the court
to dispense money for the
child's care as it was needed.
During the March trial,-
expert witnesses called by
attorneys for the insurance
company estimated young


Davis' medical expenses for
the next 14 years to be
$706,000. The Davis family
attorneys had their expert
witnesses which said the cost
would be $1.1 million for the
same period of time.
In addition to the award
last Thursday, which the
Davis family has again said
is inadequate, the mother of


young Leroy Davis has been
awarded $105,000 in the case.
U.S. District Judge Mau-
rice Paul granted the Davis
couple a retrial in June. He
since reversed himself and
granted a new trial for the
father, held last week, but
did not call for a new trial in
the son's award, leaving his
$2.1 million award intact.


Floyd said he filed a suit for
Declaratory Decree, which
asks the court to inform the
Dead Lakes Board if there
are any reasons why they
cannot comply with the Man-
damus.
Floyd said the actions were
aimed specifically at. Judge
Godwin's ruling which is
effective only in Calhoun
County. "The judge's ruling
has no power in Gulf Coun-
ty", he said.


The papers were filed with
Judge W. L. Bailey in Cal,
houn County last Wednesday.
Floyd said the parties invol-
ved were served with papers
informing them of the action
late last week or the first of
this week.
"We should have an an-
swer within 20 days. We are
going to do what we can to
encourage the court to expe-
dite this question as soon as
possible", Floyd said.

Display Recalls History

In 1837, the Legislative Council of Florida passed "an act to take census
of people in this territory on the policy of becoming a state council of 1838,
and passed an act to call a convention for the purpose of organizing a state
government. A resolution was passed designating St. Joseph as the site of
the convention". This report on history set up the Constitutional Convention
held in Old St. Joseph in 1838 near the site where a state museum now stands.
There were 56 signers of the Constitution, representing districts in the
new state of Florida, which had just been acquired by the United States in
1824.
A display has been placed in the Guff County Regional Library, showing
some of the history of that day. Along with the display is a guest book which
was kept at the celebration of the Constitutional Convention centennial in
1938. The historical displays belong to the St. Joseph Historical Society.
Shown at right are two photographs of some of the displays. In the first
picture, a display tells of Peter Gautier, Jr., editor of the St. Joseph Times,
one of the first newspapers in the new state. Gautier was active in the
development of the state and city and editorially supported the Constitution
Convention held here. Gautier was well-known throughout the south.
In the other picture, a replica is shown of the signing of Florida's first
Constition. -Star photo

A Lack of



Communication


As is usually the case in such
matters, one thing the discussion of
permits revealed in Thursday
night's meeting was a lack of
communications and understand-
ing of the situation.
Builders, property owners and
:real estate people seemed to be
i convinced there was someone up in
Tallahassee with their sights
aimed on Gulf County and their
ammunition was all charged so it
would particularly affect Gulf
County.
A Blountstown septic tank
. installer seemed to nail down the
:cause of the problem.
Most of the complaints stem-
-med from the actions of one Shawn
Berta a lady in the Tallahassee
office who was, coming to Gulf
County to help out in a crisis. Miss
Berta was causing problems right
and left, particularly here in the
south end of the county, along the
waterfront.
As J. H. Stone of Blountstown,
a septic tank installer, noted
Thursday night, "I'm sure Miss
Berta knows her job in and out. She
can probably recite you chapter
and verse about the septic tank law
; and it will all be just as it says in
the book. She more than likely
crosses every "t" and dots every
"i". She knows the law in and out,



Laziness, Lac

In the case of the Department
�of Corrections wanting Gulf County
to drastically remodel a practically
new jail just because some inspec-
tors don't think things are just
right, is another matter entirely.
' Possibly, like the septic tank
problem, it is more than likely a
i matter of somebody not knowing
what he is doing. But, with the DOC
he isn't admitting it. As a matter of
fact, in repeated contacts with
DOC, the county still keeps getting
the same story.
One inspector got the state Fire
Marshall up here to inspect the jail
to see if it was safe for prisoners to
be locked up in. Well, of course, the
jail is built primarily of concrete
and steel. There is little to no wood.
in it at all.
The Fire Marshall put the
county on notice that the walls in
the jail should be two hour fire
resistant and they would have to be
replaced. The walls in the jail
are solid concrete . . how fire
resistant can you get?
The inspector said the walls


but she don't know beans about
putting in a septic tank!"
Dr. Prather, head of HRS in
Tallahassee, agreed with Stone and
the charged atmosphere started to
uncharge.
Once people realized Miss
Berta was coming to Gulf County
and all she knew about the subject
was what it said in a book and she
had no practical field experience
at all, the attitude toward her
softened and mellowed.
You see, there wasn't an ogre
in Tallahassee trying to keep us
here in Gulf County from putting in
septic tanks. There was a young
lady in Tallahassee trying to help
Gulf County out of a bind by doing
all she knew to do, which didn't
turn out to be sufficient to get the
job done.
Dr. Prather recognized that
and pledged to do all he could to get
the matter straightened out and to
bend all efforts to get a permanent,
experienced sanitarian stationed in
Gulf County within two to three
weeks.
There's no more a person could
do under the circumstances.
This was a matter of Gulf
County getting caught in an
unfortunate situation and nobody
could do anything about it.
We'll live through it.


Sometimes big things come
in small packages. Take
diamonds for instance. They
are, I've been told, a wo-
man's best friend and they
come in real small boxes that
can be easily tucked into a
pocket. Or, for that matter,
take an old friend of mine
that is about five feet-one
inch tall. He is more like a
stick of dynamic and is a
persistent devil when it
comes to chasing women. He
is firmly convinced that
everything comes to those
who really try. And he is a
lover of ladies. Let me tell
you what happened to him
one day.
Jimmy (not his real name)
was going downtown to buy a
new shirt for the monthly
donkey-pull when he spotted
this tall, beautiful, sexy,
blond girl walking down the
street and going in the same
direction as he. When" she
continued past the store he
was going to, he continued
following her.
Finally, after a few blocks,
the "sweet-thing" entered a
store to do some shopping.
Jimmy, unable to control
himself, followed her in. It
was a Fredrick's store but he
was oblivious to anything
around him; that is except
the blond who stood about
five feet-eleven inches.

went all the'way to the roof. They
did.
Gulf County has been under
warning and has been in touch with
DOC for at least four months, all
because a state inspector didn't
take 10 minutes to check a wall to
its extreme and see if the county
met the requirements of the state

CEMETERY CLEANING
There will be a general

The girl noticed that Jim-
my was following her and
was quietly amused that this
short man was that interest-
ed in her. Her amusement,
however, soon turned to
distress when Jimmy asked
her for a kiss. She, of course,
refused, but Jimmy was not


one to give up easily. He
persisted and, finally, to rid
herself of him, she agreed to
give him one kiss.
There was one problem.
She stated that she had hurt
her back the night before
pumping iron and could not
bend over to kiss him. They


would have to find something
for him to stand on so he
could collect his prize. After
looking around for a short
time, they located a small,
solid steel safe in the rear of
the store. It was about ten
inches high; just right for
Jimmy to stand on and
receive his kiss.
After the kiss, the girl said
goodby and walked out of the
store. She had gone about a
half block when she noticed
that Jimmy was again fol-
lowing her. "Give me just
one more kiss, please?" he
pleaded. "No, definitely
not!" was her firm reply.
And she continued on down
the street.


Jimmy followed her beg-
ging, "just one more kiss?"
"No, no, no, a thousand
times no!" she answered,
firmly.
Jimmy persisted.
After about four blocks,
however, the girl had had
enough. "I am not going to
give you anything but a trip
to jail if you don't stop
following and bothering me,
and that's finally"
"Well," replied Jimmy,
breathing heavily, "if you
are that firm about not giving
me another kiss, then I had
better try to get this safe
back to that store."
Short as he is, Jimmy is, in
my opinion, a man's man!


Lichenstein's


Plain Talk Gives Most Americans A Boost In Their Morale


THEY SAY PLAIN TALK is the
easiest to understand, but that's not
always so.
Take the instance in which the U.
S. representative to the United
Nations, Charles Lichenstein, the one
who does the actual talking for the
United States, fired the sentence
heard around the world recently.
Lichenstein came up with one of
thbse rejoinders to some bull being
:put out by the Soviet Union, which
:falls in the category of, "I wish I had
Emid that".
As you and everyone else knows,
-Leiehenstein told the Soviet delega-
tion if he didn't like the UN being in
the United States, he could jolly well
take it home with him or anywhere
else he wanted. "The members of the
U.S. mission will be down at the docks
:the sunset", he retorted.

. everywhere except in politics.
There have been many times
when Mr. Citizen in these United
States would have liked to express
himself just' so when the UN got to
servingg up its cold mush under the


guise of statesmanship.
Personally, I don't believe the
nations of the world would have the
UN headquarters anywhere except
where it is. If the headquarters had

situation would exist more so in some

So far as I can ascertain, he
embarrassed only those who are
embarrassed by any show of resolve by
our nation. Everyone else seemed to
be pleased with his statement.
I hope he gets the opportunity to
make more like it.


I HAD A DREAM the other night.
Actually it would be more like a
nightmare rather than a dream. It
woke me up in the middle of the night,
shuddering at the thought of such ever
coming true.
I hate to think of what the
consequences would be if it had not
been only a dream.
I was minding my own business
the other night, sleeping away, and
enjoying every minute of it. Frenchie
says I snore, but if I was, I sure wasn't
disturbing me. Once our men's
Sunday School class spent the night on
the river on a fishing trip and Ralph
Walton said I was snoring so hard, I
was grunting worms. But, on this
particular night, everything was
peaceful and the night was going
good.
Suddenly, I started to dream. It
was so real I could almost smell it and
after I popped awake in the middle of
the night, it still seemed as if I had
seen that sad sight sometime during
the day before.
I forget what the story was which
being acted out in my dream. The


story must have been just your
ordinary dream being acted out.
Even though I don't remember
the story of the dream, I vividly
remember this one event. I was
sleeping and dreaming along, when, lo
and behold, from out of nowhere, with
not a note of fanfare or warning, came
Nolan Treglown.
Why Nolan, I don't know. I have
had very few dealings with Nolan and
no unpleasant ones at that. Since I'm
on the Board at Florida National
Bank, I know his appearing in my
dream wasn't just a cheap way of
giving him some advertising.
When Nolan popped into my
dream, from wherever he came from,
he was a sight to see.
Nolan was all decked out in an
Afro hair style. . . you know, one of
those tight curly jobs some of the men
are getting so they won't have to comb

Slated In Health Fair


Just one more week to go
and Gulf County will have its
first ever Health Fair! This
one you won't want to miss,
for a "Health Screening" will
be made available for every
adult in Gulf County.
The Health Fair has these
goals: To help you in the
early detection of potential
disease; to help you better
understand how the daily
choices made in your per-
sonal life style and health
habits can effect your whole
life; and to make available to
you a wide variety of pre-
ventive health measures you
can practice.
It should be understood
that these "Health Sdreen-
ings" do not in any way
replace a physical examina-
tion by a physician, but they
are a preventative health
measure'and an opportunity
for you to learn more about
your own health or health
problems.
Here are some of the
Health Screenings which will
be offered: Height and
Weight, Hearing, Visual
Acuity, Oral Health, Blood
Pressure, Anemia, Glau-
coma, Skin Cancer, Colon
Rectal, Pap Test, and Breast
Exam (Self). A complete and

CARING FOR SOFT
CONTACT LENSES
Q. Are soft contact lenses
care-free?
A. NO. Daily wear soft
lenses require daily care.
If soiled, or excessively
dry lenses are inserted in
your eyes, they will im-
pede your vision and
cause pain. The lenses
themselves can be ruined.
The heat disinfection
method is the. one most
commonly used. First
*L clean both sides of .your
contact lenses with a
cleaning solution recom-
mended by your op-
tometrist, then rinse im-
mediately with a special
solution. Place each lens
in the appropriately
marked compartment of
your small storage case,
each compartment filled
with enough solution to
cover the lens. Close com-
partment lids tightly and
put the case into your
electrical heating unit for
' sterilization. The unit's
light will usually indicate
when the lenses have
been disinfected. This
procedure must be follow-
ed each day.
Q. If I forget my disinfection
unit when I'm away from
home, how can I sterilize
my soft contact lenses?
A. After your lenses have
been cleaned and rinsed,
put your lens carrying
case into a pan of boiling
water for ten minutes. Al-
low the water to cool
before removing the case.
Do not allow the water in
the pan to boil away or
your contact lenses will
( be ruined.

In addition to' the National
Health Screening Council,
other National sponsors of

SOME DOCTORS & DENTISTS
i ARE USING HYPNOSIS
Once hypnosis was only an entertainment medium.
But today it is being used medically more and more in
the treatment of many conditions. There are actually
physicians who are just specializing in the use of
hypnosis. It have proven effective in such situations as
stopping thumbsucking, nail-biting, and excessive
drinking. And, recently it was proved to be a valuable
aid in treating musculo-skeletal disorders such as
bursitis.
Hypnosis for medical conditions should always be in
the hands of trained experts. The amateur hypnotist
could potentially cause harm, for there is still a great
deal to learn about how it actually works and its
possible side effects. Do not expose yourself to hypnosis
unless your physician advises it.
"A GREAT MANy PEOPLE ENTRUST US
with their prescriptions, health needs and other
pharmacy products. We consider this trust a
privilege and a duty. May we be your personal

Three Wins In A Row


Sharks Demolish Havana, 42-0 Friday Night


Port St. Joe's Sharks scor-
ed in every period last
Friday night, in their home
opener, to completely rout
the Havana Gladiators, 42-0.
Even with 80 yards of
penalties and losing two
fumbles, the Sharks dominat-
ed the game, running up a
total of 343 yards in offense
and held the Gladiators to a
minus five yards.
Terry Woullard scored the
Sharks first touchdown, tuck-
ing in a Chris Butts' pass for
24 yards and the ,score. Butts
kicked his first of four extra
point conversions and the
Sharks led, 7-0. !
Late in the first period, the
Shark defense forced the
Havana quarterback, Jeffrey
Robinson, to futnble in his
own backfield for the second
time. For the second time,
Stanley Peters picked up the
fumble, but this time he ran

The Sharks scored twice
more in the second period,
when Woullard bulled over
the middle for a 16 yard
scoring drive. With two and a
half minutes left in the half,
Mike Pittman came around
left end for a 15 yard
scamper, after setting up the
score on a 17 yard dash to the
Gladiator 24.
In the second half, the
Sharks seemed to try to
coast, but the Gladiators
could not take advantage of
the let-down.
Still the Sharks scored. In
the third period, Mike Pitt-
man again worked his way
through the line and went for
a 15 yard scoring run.
In the last quarter, the
Sharks' longest pass play of
the night, gained 41 yards,
when Butts hit Terry Woul-
lard on a short look-in up the

,Hospital Adds Equipment Retired Methodist Missionary to


Sophisticated Cardiology Testing Introduced


Rand J. Wortman, Admini-
st-ator of Gulf Pines Hospi-
tal, has announced that the
hospital has added Ultra-
sound testing and Echocar-
diogram testing to the al-
ready expanded range of
services available at Gulf
Pines Hospital. He states,
"We are very pleased to offer
these services to our com-
munity. Previously, patients
had to travel to Panama City
for each of these services.
The Ultrasound services are
offered in conjunction with
Bay Radiology from Panama
City. The equipment is simi-
lar to that used for examina-
tion of patients by Bay
'Radiology in their Panama
City offices, and Bay Radi-
ology provides the technician
to do the study. Radiologists
from Bay Radiology provide
the interpretations. The Ec-
hocardiogram services are
offered in conjunction with
SCardiology Associates from
Panama City. The equipment
is the same equipment used
by both hospitals in Panama
City and the technicians from
Panama City perform the
study. The interpretations
are done by Dr. James T.
Cook, III and Dr. Thompson
Maner. In essence, we are
now able to offer these
services to the Port St. Joe
community without the pa-
tient having to travel to
Panama City."
T" __ ._ ; . . ..... . .4!


Hospital is an ongoing endea-
vor and that he will be
advising the residents of Port


St. Joe and surrounding area
of all of the new services
being offered in an effort to


provide the public with the
most current, professional
health care available.

Dr. Joe Hendrix Recertified

By Family Practice Board


Dr. Joseph P. Hendrix of
Port St. Joe has been recerti-
fied as a diplomat of the
American Board of Family
Practice (ABFP) as a result
of passing a recertification
examination offered by the
ABFP. The physician thus
maintains specialist status in
the medical specialty of
family practice.
ABFP diplomats must
continue to show proof of
competence in the field of
comprehensive, continuing
care of the family by being
recertified every six years.
No other major medical
specialty requires diplo-'
mates to be recertified on a
continuing basis.
The written examination is
designed to prove the candi-
date's continuing compe-
tence in the basic compo-
nents of family practice-
internal medicine, surgery,
obstetrics and gynecology,
pediatrics, psychiatry and
neurology, and community
medicine.


To qualify for certification
initially a physician must
have successfully completed
three years of residency
training in family practice
and passed ' an intensive
2-day certification examina-
tion. There, are some 385
residency training programs
in teaching hospitals and
university medical centers
across the United States. .

sionary to Japan in 1939.
During World War II she
continued her study of the

Protestant missionary to re-

serving on the school's reli-
gion committee and official
board

If you're like most people, you prob-
ably don't pin down the financial details of
buying a new or used car until after you've
picked it out. And test-driven it. And fallen in
love with it.
At Florida National Bank, we'd like you
to consider the advantages of putting your
new car buying habits in reverse: Buckling
up your financing first.
That way, you'll be all set to drive a
hard bargain before you even get out to the
showroom floor. Because you'll not only have
a clear idea of how much you want to spend,
you'll have approval on that money in ad-
vance. And if you've ever been involved


in a new car deal, you know that "cash-in-
hand" means bargaining power.
You simply stop by your neighborhood
Florida National office. We'll go over your
budget with you, quote you a competitive
interest rate and work out a comfortable
monthly payment schedule. Then, we'll
approve your loan in advance and formalize
everything once you get your car. Of course,
you're under no obligation until you sign.
So before you drive your bargain,
buckle up your financing at Florida
National Bank.
When you think about it, there's no
safer, smarter way to buy a car.

BY ROY LEE CARTER
County Extension Director
In one of my previous
articles I talked about fall
vegetable garden soil pre-
paration, while some work
can be done only a few days
prior to planting, you must
start two or three weeks
earlier, if you plan to mix in
some organic matter. If lime
must be added, you'll need to
begin a month or six weeks
ahead of planting time.
Most Florida soil is sandy
and relatively infertile. Add-
ing organic matter and other
plant nutrients to a vegetable
garden site usually pays off
in greater productivity. Ma-
nure makes an ideal organic
additive. My information for
this article was provided by
Vegetable Crop Specialist
Jim Stephens.
Incorporating organic,
matter in vegetable garden
soil improves the soil's abili-
ty to hold water and nutrients
around plant roots. It helps
maintain a stable soil -pH, or
acid level. This is very'
important because plants
can't make good use of
fertilizer unless the soil pH is
correct.
Organic matter helps in
several other ways. It sup-
ports bacteria and other
beneficial micro organisms.:
It provides both major and
minor plant nutrients, which
are released slowly. This
allows plants to use such
nutrients before they are
washed' away by rain or
irrigation water. Organic
matter also helps make use
of certain nutrients which
are naturally present in the
soil. For example, some
important elements such as
nitrogen are found in com-
pounds that won't dissolve in
water. In these forms, the

and George Tapper, Chair-
man of the Port St. Joe Port
Authority had informed him
62 acres at White City were
now available for develop-
ment. The Board agreed to
write the Port St. Joe Port
Authority concerning this
, property.
Comm. Gortman agreed to
call Allen Potter, District
Engineer, Department of
Transportation, to discuss
bid specification require-
ments for re-paving approa-
ches to the Simmons Bayou
and Dead Lakes Dam Brid-
ges.
Sheriff Ken Murphy report-
ed that on October 1, 1983, the
Florida Law Enforcement
Officers and Firefighters
Death Benefit to police and
fire personnel killed in the
line of duty, in addition to the
$20,000 Accidental Death
benefit now provided. Sheriff
Murphy reported he has paid
the accidental death insur-
ance policy premium from
his budget in the past, but
that both these insurance
premiums should be paid by
the Board.
The Board agreed to make
changes to the County inven-
tory. Changes are on file in
the Clerk's office.
All payrolls for the month
of August, 1983 were ap-
proved as paid. The Clerk
reported the amount of fines
and bonds collected for -the
month.
There being no further
business, the meeting ad-
journed.

adequate amounts of the
major plant nutrients- ni-
trogen, phosphorus, and po-
tassium. Even if they are
present, the relative propor-
tions may not be correct for
good vegetable production.


So unless you insist on
following strict organic gar-
dening practices, it's a good
idea to broadcast some com-
mon fertilizer such as 8-8-8 or

CARTER
nutrients are unavailable to
plants. As organic materials
decompose, certain chemical
reactions take place, forming
new soluble compounds that
will release the needed ele-
ments.
As I said, animal manure is
an excellent source of or-
ganic materials. In fact, for
organic gardeners, it's prob-
ably the best substitute for
both other types of organic
matter and commercial ferti-
lizers. About' three weeks
before planting, spread the
manure evenly over the
surface of the garden area,
and work it into the soil with
a rake. If you use cow or
horse manure, you'll heed
about 25 lbs. for every 100
square feet of garden space.
With poultry manure, you
can get along with only about
12 lbs. per 100 sq. ft.
For best results, you
should supplement, the ma-.
nure application with super-
phosphate, available at
many garden centers. Use
two or three lbs. of super-
phosphate with every 25 lbs.
of cow or horse manure, one
or two lbs. with every 12 lbs.
of poultry manure. Organic
gardeners may want to sub-
stitute ground rock phos-
phate, or raw bone meal, for
superphosphate. Regardless,
be sure the materials are
incorporated in the soil at
least three weeks before
planting.
Also, keep in mind that
manure may, not provide
