Highland View Wants


Water


Board Member Makes Request to City for Services


Highland View wants to be a part of a system which
carries treated water from the City of Port St. Joe to the
Beaches, if it becomes a reality.
Martin Adkison, one of the Highland View Water
System board of directors told the Port St. Joe City
Commission Tuesday night, the water board of that small
community to the west of Port St. Joe isn't figured into the
plans for the beaches water system which is presently in the
planning stage, but that his community wants to tie into the
distribution and have the Cith of Port St. Joe handle its
water services.
Adkison said, "It's hard for us as a board to maintain
our present water treatment system, which has been
allowed to deteriorate over the years". Adkison said the
plant is in a "deplorable condition" and said the community
really didn't have the expertise to put it into good working
order.
While Highland View isn't a part of the county-planned
beaches water system, a supply main to the beaches system
from Port St. Joe would have to pass right by the


community, which was the first unincorporated area in
Gulf County to receive a public water supply. However, the
system has been operated almost totally with volunteer
labor since it was installed and as a consequence the
treatment and distribution systems are in a state of sad
disrepair.
The community has a good well and a sound treatment
system in need of a lot of repair and work, but the
distribution system is largely suspect by Port St. Joe
professionals who operate the local system.
According to Bob Simon, who oversees most of the
machinery in the Port St. Joe area, most of the Highland
View meters are inoperable and the piping system is built of
a brittle transit pipe, which isn't the most dependable pipe
one could have.
Adkison said his board is interested in reaching some
kind of agreement with Port St. Joe for a dependable
service which would ensure the community of a safe water
supply. He said the board would be interested in discussing
a deal whereby the City of Port St. Joe might take over


operation of the present system or assume ownership of
production of Highland View's one supply well. Adkison
said he would like to have information about what charges
would be under several different plans to furnish water for
the community.
"If the City supplies water for the Beaches system, we
definitely are interested in talking about becoming a part of
those distribution plans" Adkison said.
Mayor Frank Pate told Adkison the City and County are
presently planning to begin a series of meetings to discuss
what can be done in the supply of water and that Adkison
will be notified of the meetings, so he can sit in for Highland
View.
The Gulf County Commission has been interested in the
Highland View water system for the past five or six years,
after it first became noticeably sub-standard. The County
has been interested in including Highland View in the
beaches system distribution plans, but haven't seriously
started such a plan.

Theft Ring

Solved - Stolen Motors Recovered


State Attorney Jim Appleman revealed
yesterday morning, that the Florida Marine
Patrol and his State's Attorney office had
uncovered an outboard motor theft ring
which had been operating in the Port St. Joe,
Highland View and White City areas since
March of. this year.
Appleman said the ring had taken at
least seven outboard motors during that
time. Four of the seven motors were
reported by Appleman to have been
recovered and will be returned to the
owners.
Three arrests were made by the
Attorney and Marine Patrol in connection
with the theft ring.
Arrested were: Ronald A. Ross, age 40,
of Highland View; Kenneth Collin Crum,
26, of East Point and Donald Wayne
Rhames, 22, of Howard Creek.

New Lift Staiion

A workman with J. W. Meadors Construction Company
of Jacksonville, rides a dragline cable above some sheet
piling being driven into the ground for a new lift station at
the City's Primary Station to the Wastewater Treatment
Plant.
The new lift station is being built to handle the City's
increased load of sewage coming into the treatment
facility. The new plant will correct inefficiencies in the old
one as well as enlarge capacity. Presently, Bob Simon,
plant superintendent said that during times of peak load,
the station must use auxiliary pumping capacity to handle
the load.
All City sewage goes through the lift station, where it
is chlorinated prior to entry into the treatment plant
system. -Star photo


Ross has been charged with seven
counts of grand theft. Crum faces one count
'of dealing in stolen property and Rhames is
charged with one count of grand theft and
one count of dealing in stolen property.
Appleman said the four motors recover-
ed Were valued at $4,000 and included three
20 horsepower Mercury motors and one 25
horsepower Johnson.
Appleman said the investigation of the
ring is continuing.. "We expect to make
more arrests and recover more motors as
the investigation progresses", Appleman
said.
The State's Attorney gave credit for
solving the case to Bucky Richter, local
Marine Patrol agent and Jim Buchanan,
investigator for the States' Attorney's
office.

In Gulf County


53 Million In Property Exemptions


One of the side effects of Florida's new
homestead exemption law has been that a
large number of homes have been totally
exempt from paying any ad valorem taxes
because of the $25,000 exemption.
The situation was high lighted last week
when an article was printed in area daily
papers playing up the large number of
homesteads in the Panhandle which were
totally exempt from paying ad valorem


taxes. The story reported that the Panhan-
dle area led the state in this situation.
As a matter of fact, neighboring
Franklin County leads the state with 76.9
percent of its homeowners totally exempt
from paying ad valorem taxes because their
homes are valued at less than the $25,000
which is exempt under state law.
With other counties in the immediate

Lightning Starts Fire


A severe electrical storm during the
night Wednesday, and early Thursday
morning of last week, disrupted electrical
service in a good portion of the City and
started at least one fire, according to Fire
Chief Bascom Hamm.
Hamm said lightning apparently struck
a high voltage power line in the alley on the
west side of Reid Avenue, starting a fire in
some building materials and appliances
stacked behind Kennedy Electric Company.


Hamm said the line was struck and fell
to the ground about 1:30 a.m., Thursday,
causing some of the material to catch fire,
even in a driving rain. The live wire lying on
the wet ground and in water caused some
fireworks of its own, according to the fire
chief.
Hamm said there was very little actual
destruction from the fallen line, but some
anxious moments were spent by firemen
until everything was all under control.


Over 450 People Take Advantage of

Gulf's First "Health Fair" Project'


Port St. Joe and Gulf Coun-
ty experienced their first
"Health Fair" this past Sat-
urday, with over 450 people
taking advantage of the fair
fi to have free physical ex-
aminations. Each person
participating filled out a
health form, had their height
and weight checked, as well
as their blood pressure,
hearing, vision, oral, and
blood checked for anemia.
Pap smears were avail-
able for women, as well as
instructions in breast self-
examination. Materials


were supplied for self ap-
plication of colon-rectal
cancer.
Over 100 people took ad-
vantage of the blood
chemistry analysis offered
for $8.00, the only fee which
was charged at the health
fair. Results from the 26
tests to be run on each per-
son's blood sample will be
mailed in approximately two
weeks.
Following the various
health examinations, each
person was referred to a con-
sulting team, consisting of


local nurses, who went over
the results with each patient.
If a health problem was
noted, they were advised to
seek medical attention.
The Health Fair was term-
ed a "huge success" by coor-
dinator Stiles Brown. "This
was a first time effort, and
we were pleased at the turn-
out. We hope to be of service
to a greater number of peo-
ple when this is offered again
next year."
The Health Fair was one of
many that are being spon-


scored nationally by. Pruden-
tial Insurance Co., and had
the cooperation and par-
ticipation of the local health
community. In addition to
the professionals conducting
the testing, there were many
support people at the fair:
aerobic dance demonstra-
tions by a ladies' exercise
class; many displays and in-
formative programs on
health related topics offered
locally; high school ROTC
cadets serving as guides and
aiding the infirm; and many
others.


Idle Incinerator

May Possibly Handle County's Garbage


City building inspector, E.
F. Gunn told the City Com-
mission Tuesday night, it
might be more feasible to use
the now-idle incinerator at
the Wastewater Treatment
Plant to dispose of garbage
than hauling it to the lone
approved Gulf County land-
fill site north of Wewahitch-
ka.
Gunn, who has been charg-
ed by the City Commission


with improving upon a set of
very tentative plans laid out
by the County, said. "This
transfer site isn't going to be
cheap and it isn't going to be
cheap to operate. It may be
your best bet to activate the
incinerator to dispose of your
garbage and trash".
Gunn said he had been
tentatively looking at the
possibilities of using the
incinerator for garbage dis-


posal for the past two or
three weeks as an alternative
to a compactor station here
in the South end of the
county.
The County is under orders
from the Department of
Environmental Regulation to
stop using landfill methods of
disposal in the south end of
the county due to the high
water table found all over
southern Gulf County. The


only landfill site approved by
DER is one at Buckhorn, at
the extreme north end of the
county.
As a result, Gulf County
has called for a unified
operation from both the
county and the City of Port
St. Joe to install a compactor
station here in south Gulf and
truck the compacted garbage
and trash to the Buckhorn

Our beaches area is also
becoming too large to depend on
individual wells for a safe and
dependable water supply. They are
dangerously close to the salt water
beaches to be drawing so much
fresh safe water out of the ground.
The system will cost money,
and likely will cost nearly as much

We think the cost will be worth it.


Ladies and Gentlemen,
there are some rich folks in
this world today. And I mean
real rich folks. It wasn't long
ago that a person was
considered rich if he was
worth a couple of hundred
thousand dollars. If he was
worth a million dollars he
was considered a millionaire.
That makes sense. Anyway,
a millionaire was considered'
rich. Today, however, a
millionaire is not considered,
by some standards, as being
rich. He is by my standards,
but by some he is not.
I have always wanted to be
rich. Not "filthy" rich, but
just rich. And, after thinking
about it for about thirty
years, I find that I have
serious doubts about wanting
to be wealthy. I don't know if
I could handle it or not. It
sure is a lot of fun thinking
about it, though.
There are people that have
won fortunes playing slot
machines. That seems easy
enough, but I wonder if they
are happy with all that
money. Pictures I have seen
of them indicate that they
are, at least for the moment.
They always seem to be


smiling. I wonder what they
bought first. Probably a hot
dog and a beer. Who knows?
If I suddenly came into a
few million dollars, I wonder
if I would go to work
tomorrow. I seriously doubt
it. I also wonder if I would be
the same kind, loving person.
I'm certain that I would be,
,but money does strange
things to people sometimes.
What would sudden wealth
do to my family life? Would I
continue to be the same
husband that always comes
home right after work each
day? Would I take my
children to the circus like I
did last week? Or, would I
direct my chauffeur to drive
them there, and give him a
couple of hundred dollars to
spend on them? And, what
would I be doing while they
were at the circus? These are
some of the things that
bother me about being rich.
I am concerned about my
friends and what my sudden
wealth would do to them.
Would they shun me because
I was rich, or would they try
to borrow money from me?
Watch out, boys! You know
how I hate moochers.


The house I live in is a nice
house. It's more than that;
it's a home and I like it. If I
were rich, however, I doubt
that I would continue living
here. I would probably want

Dear Wesley,
I would like to comment on
the article, "Killing Lakes",
which you published on the
front page of The Star
October 6 stating Mr. Tom-
my Williams' "opinion". He
states that his "copy" of the
survey map filed in the
Calhoun County Courthouse
in 1824 shows the cut-off and
the old St. Joseph and Iola
Railroad on the map. I fail to
see how that could be possi-
ble since the fact is that "The
railroad was built for
$300,000.00 in 1839", 15 years
later, according to historian
Louise M. Porter's "Lives of
St. Joseph", page no. 39.

COMING HOME SUNDAY, we
decided to come back by way of
Brooksville, where Frenchie wanted
to look at the Christmas house.
This was some house!
Actually, it was five houses joined
together by wooden walkways and
landscaped grounds. The entire op-
eration is run by a corps of elderly
ladies.
I was standing, waiting, while
Frenchie was picking up everything
and looking at it in one of the five
houses, when I asked one of the
elderly ladies running the place, "Do
you have this kind of business year
round?" since there was a sizeable
crowd in the place when we were
there.
"It stays busy like this all the
time", she said. "We average 5,000
people through here each day", then
went on to qualify that statement to
say business fell off some during July
and August.
Brooksville is not much larger
than Port St. Joe, so they have to
import a few customers every day.


COMING ON UP U.S. 19 toward
home, we came through Tarpon
Springs and lo, and behold, there was
"Pappa's" restaurant beside the
road.
My good OLD friend, George
McLawhon has told me so much about
eating at Pappa's, we had to stop and
have lunch.
George either goes to St. Peters-
burg to go to Pappa's or to Pappa's to
go to St. Petersburg. Either way, he
goes often.
The way he talks about Pappa's, I
figured he was on a first name basis
with them, so when we were seated
and our waitress introduced herself as
"Jennifer", I told her I would have the
same thing George McLawhon orders
each time he comes to Pappa's.
Jennifer looked at me and I
repeated my order.
"I'm afraid I don't know a George
McLawhon", she said.
"You must", I said, "he talks
about you all the time!"
Come to find out, Jennifer really
didn't know George McLawhon. She
must be new on the job.

is
About a month ago, the
r. county came up with a very
t tentative plan for the work-
ir ings of the compactor site
is and the City has asked Gunn
to look over the drawings and
nt refine them for application to
y this area.
r Gunn said he and Bob
0 Simon, Wastewater Treat-
y ment Plant Superintendent,
t- both thought the incinerator
a would need extensive work to
d get it ready for garbage
e burning duties, but they are
s in contact with Zurn Manu-
e factoring Company, builder
of the incinerator, to see if
this application would be
feasible and give an estimate
of cost for activating the
incinerator.
Simon told the Commission
Zurn had promised to have
an engineer take a look at the
project in just a short while
at no cost to the City.
The incinerator, was orig-
inally purchased for the
"" Wastewater Plpnt t burn
sludge at the plant. However,
lime and silicon mixed in
with the sludge prevents the
use of the machine and it has
never been used for its
intended purpose, except to
find out that it would not
work as the plant design


engineer said it would.
The incinerator has just
been sitting there for about
eight years. A couple of
opportunities to sell it in the
past have fallen through.
The incinerator is designed E
to be fired with natural gas
until the material it is
burning gets to generating
heat, then its fire feeds on the
material being burned and
the outside fuel source is cut
off.
In the meantime, Gunn
said he would proceed 'with
tentative plans for the com-
pacting station. He said work
couldn't be very complete on
the drawings at this stage,
since the county does not
have a site on which to locate
the station as yet.
Gunn said he could have
the preliminary drawings
complete within two weeks.
The City and County Com-
missions will begin joint
meetings at this time to
arrive at an agreement and Bc
plans for installation of some
sort of compacting station or q
use the incinerator, which-
ever is most economical and
most feasible. ___



Exemption:

vicinity of Gulf ranging from 44.9 to 70.
percent, Gulf is right in the middle of th
number of exempt homes with 59.9 percent
of its homes totally exempt.
Until the last couple of years, Gul
County has been an area of cottage-typ
homes, especially in outlying areas anm
along the beaches. Homes inside the cit:
limit areas of the county have, largely, been
of the type which would be valued at high
rates and have subsequently gone on the ta:
rolls after real estate inflation has shovel
their values up above the $25,000 mark se
by the state.
In the past couple of years, a building
boom in the beaches areas of the county
have caused a surge of more expensive
buildings being built. These have gone on
the tax rolls for more than the $25,000
exemption figure, so they will pay rea
estate taxes.
Gulf county's picture is helped some dui
to absentee ownership of a good number o
the beaches homes, which does not alloy
them to claim homestead exemption
leaving their entire value taxable.
This fact alone probably keeps Gul
County from being one of the leaders ii
exempt homesteads in the Panhandle.
The exemption rate was approved in
1980 and written into the State's Constitu
tion. It didn't take long for law makers to see
the new exemption, was going' to be a
problem and a variety odmethods have been
pushed to rectify the situation. Since the

exemption is written into the Constitution,
and takes a vote of the people to change it,
change isn't going to be easy.
Gulf County's Property Appraiser,
Joyce Williams, says Gulf's rate of totally
exempt homesteads was greater than the
current 59.9 percent last year. She said that
although the present exempt percentage
seems to be based on her preliminary
figures turned in to the state the first of the
year, they are still pretty accurate. "I don't
know where they took their figures from",
Ms. Williams said, "But they seem to be
fairly correct."
Williams said there is currently $53
million in exempt homestead property in
Gulf County today. Add to this, some $4%
million in institutional exemptions (chur-
ches, hospitals, etc.); $424,000 in total
exemptions for disabilities allowed by law
and $21Y4 million worth of government
property totally exempt, and Gulf County
has a sizeable amount of property which is
totally exempt from paying taxes.
In addition, one exemption in the
Economic Development Exemption cate-
gory adds $9% million to the total amount of
tax exempt properties but this relief will be
in effect for only 10 years.
That $53% million in homestead exemp-
tions will be the target of fancy maneuvers
in months to come, to try and figure out a
way of proving relief for those who really
need it and st i require those to pay at least
some taxes for the services they receive.

ELECTRIC


HEAT PUMPS


Many people with electric heat pumps aren't so comfortable
with their choice.
That's because a heat pump provides air that's been warmed to
only around 950�. Most people are a lot more comfortable with the
warmer air a gas furnace delivers at around 1300 F.
And because the heat pump's air is cooler, more of it has to be
blown in to heat a home. As a result, heat pump users often com-
plain of draftiness.
They complain about the cost too. When the temperature drops
to the low thirties, their back-up electric resistance heat has to help
their heat pump heat. And that really sends cost up.
You can be a lot more comfortable all year round and save
money all year round with an efficient gas furnace combined with
an efficient central cooling system. It can even cost less to buy and
install - Hundreds of dollars less.
Before you make a choice talk to us. Get the cold facts about
both systems. We know you will warm up to natural gas.

years started his long and
winding career with the
United Methodist Church
ministry in 1938 at the age of
18 years. "That was in
Kinston, Alabama," he said.
"Those were hard times
then. I was in charge of eight
churches, and I had a pick-up
truck. All year, I served that
charge in the truck, and I
hauled produce."
After Kinston, Rev. Lind-
sey served the following
appointments: Pike Circuit;
Banks; Midland City; Citro-
nelle; Port St. Joe (1951-53);


ning This
Fort Walton Beach; Ozark;
Marianna; Selma District;
Jackson; Myrtle Grove, Pen- I

Sunday
in Pensacola since that time.
All are invited to welcome
the Lindseys back to Port St.
Joe this Sunday. Rev. Lind-
sey will preach at the 11:00

THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla. THURSDAY, OCT. 20. 1983


Recently I testified in sup-
port of legislation I am co-
sponsoring which is designed to
improve the rural electrification
system in our country. This bill,
H.R. 3050, is called the Rural
Electrification and Telephone
Revolving Fund Self-
Sufficiency Act and the hear-
ings were held by the Subcom-
mittee on Conservation, Credit
and Rural Development of the
House Agriculture Committee.
As I said in my statement,
the Second District of Florida is
served by several rural electric
co-ops and we need to insure
their ability to serve the public
with low cost electricity in the
future.
The revolving fund utilized
for loans to cooperatives needs
a steady balance to insure its
) solvency. The needs of the rural
electric customers are very im-
portant to me and I want to in-
sure that their needs are met for
the rest of this century and into
.the Twenty-first Century, as
Swell.


I have introduced legislation
to place a one year moratorium
on the Interstate Commerce
Commission (ICC) regulations
deregulating the boxcar in-
dustry. This issue, although
technical in nature, could have
a profound impact on short-line
connecting railroads in Florida.
I believe the ICC acted in haste
to issue its deregulation order
and I believe Congress should
have an opportunity to careful-
ly review the issues involved to
determine the advisability of
proceeding. The one year
moratorium will give- us that
time. Without this legislation,
some smaller cities may lose
their boxcar traffic altogether
and J do not want to see that
happen..
* * *

With deregulation of the
airlines came the promise of
more and cheaper flights to all
cities. Now many of the major,,
carriers are in deep financial dif-
ficulty. The only airlines show-
ing profits are small carriers ser-
ving regional routes.
Committees of both the
House of Representatives and
Senate will review current
deregulation statutes to deter-
mine if the public is being serv-
ed by present laws. It is


221 Reid Avenue


estimated that up to 90% of the
American people have flown at
one time or another and the
goal is to retain inexpensive,
safe and dependable air
transportation.
The safety record of
American air carriers is unmat-
ched in the world and we now
have many discount fares. The
concern is that if more and
more carriers declare bankrupt-
cy, people will not be able to de-
pend on having their reserva-
tions honored. I expect that in
the coming months Congress
will give serious thought to
reform legislation on this issue.
* * *

The Subcommittee on
Legislation and National Securi-
ty of the Government Opera-
tions Committee on which I
serve held a hearing on the Ad-
ministration's proposal to sell
off our Nation's weather
satellites. The Committee on
Science and Technology, which
I chair, has been instrumental in
pointing out the folly in selling
off our satellites.
First, the government might
gain some funds from the sales
but such monies would be more
than offset by the costs to the
government to buy back the in-
formation from' private com-
panies. Further, some of the in-
formation obtained by the
satellites could be of critical im-
portance to intelligence agen-
cies and our government in case
of an emergency situation in the
world. Having to go through a
third source to obtain the data
would increase the chance for
a security leak.
I am convinced that this idea
is penny wise and pound foolish
and it has met with overwhelm-
ing public and congressional op-
position. I do not believe Con-
gress will permit the Administra-
tion to sell off our weather
satellites.

Containers Are Important


to Successfully Cultivate Large Variety


Congressman

Don Fuqua

Reports

,


BY ROY LEE CARTER
County Extension Director
Containers are important
keys to successful house
plant culture. There are
many kinds, some decora-
tive, some purely functional.
They're available in a va-
riety of materials, ,play,
ceramic, wood, plastic and
metal. Regardless of type,
they all serve a single
purpose- to hold the soil,
water and nutrients which
support your plant's growth.
Some are better than others.
Soil moisture retention is
one of the most important
factors influenced by house
plant containers. Since im-

corative containers, especi-
ally jardiniers, lack drainage
holes. Any excess water you
apply cannot escape through
the bottom. This presents a
root hazard. If you choose to
grow your house plants in
such containers, you should
be very careful to avoid
overwatering. Actually, if
you want to use non-draining,
decorative containers, it's a
good idea to grow your plants
in clay pots that have drain-
age holes and place these
inside the jardinieres. If
drilling isn't practical, place
a layer of gravel in the
bottom, to collect excess
water.
If you're trying to arrange
an indoor planter, it's wise to
keep plants in separate con-
tainers and use peat moss,
bark or rock chips to sur-
round the individual pots.
This will give the appearance


that all the plants are grow-
ing together in the planter.
But their individual watering
needs can be more closely
monitored.
When a plant starts re-
quiring water on a daily basis
to keep from wilting, it's time
to think about repotting. For
the plant to look and grow its
best, its foliage should be
about two or three times the
diameter of the top of the pot.
If it gets to be four times the
size of its container, it needs
repotting. As a general rule,
plants should be graduated
one pot size at a time. This
maintains a good ratio be-
tween plant and container
size. It also reduces the
chances of overwatering.
When repotting, carefully
remove as much of the soil as
possible from around the
outside of the plant's root
system. If the plant is pot
bound, that is, if the root
completely fills the contain-

er, you may need to cut away
the matted exterior roots.
Then place some soil in the
bottom of the new .pot and
transfer the plant. Fill
around the plant with new
soil and water thoroughly.
Always re-pot a plant at the
same level at which it was
growing in its old container.
In summary, plant contain-
ers are available in all
shapes, sizes and types of
materials. From wood, clay
and ceramic to plastic and
metal. But their main func-

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 frst.
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. Well go over your
budget with you, quote you a competitive
interest rate and work out a comfortable
monthly payment schedule. Then, well
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 Dr.
Wesley Grace


KNOW YOUR
INSURANCE RIGHTS
Q. Do health insurance poli-
cies cover eye examina-
tions?
A. Some do and some don't.
Read your policy care-
fully or check with the
personnel or benefits de-
partment of your com-
pany. Some group insur-
ance policies pay for an
annual or biannual eye
examination. A few pay
for eyeglasses; other
policies pay for vision
training. There is no uni-
formity of coverage for
optometric services.
Q. Does Medicare cover op-
tometric services for
older citizens?
A. Medicare pays for opto-
metric services only for
post-cataract patients.
Once your cataract has
been removed, Medicare
will pay for part of your
eye examination, eye
glasses, and/or contact
lenses. They will continue
to do so as the prescrip-
tion for your eye glasses
and/or contact lenses
changes and you need
new ones. Medicare also
covers the cost of fitting
an artificial eye.
Q. Does Medicaid cover op-
tometric services for low-
income patients?
A. Yes, but fees differ in dif-
ferent states.
Q. Are optometric services
and eye glasses tax de-
ductible?
A. They certainly are. These
services should be item-
ized in the medical deduc-
tion section of your in-
come tax return form.
Keep your receipts or
cancelled checks as proof
of services rendered.

Don't Shoot Over

or From Roadways


With the opening of dove
season recently came

Commission.
Lt. Col. Brantley Goodson,

HALLOWEEN SAFETY


Halloween is a fun time
for children, but all too
often the observance is
marred by tragedy. The
physicians of Florida wish
to remind you of precau-
tions that can be taken to
help assure a safe Hallo-
ween for all children.
Parental guidance is sug-
gested when young trick,
or-treaters select their


costumes. Masks should be
checked to assure they will
not Interfere with breathing
and vision. Dark costumes
are difficult for motorists
to see, so lighter colors are
safer. Make sure that the
costume legs are not so
long that little ones might
trip themselves.
Small children should
always be accompanied by
an adult. Flashlights should
be provided, and children
should be cautioned against
running from house to
house and admonished not
to eat any treats until
parents have inspected them
for contamination. Some
parents do not allow their
children to consume un-
wrapped treats.


Since most children tend
to binge on their booty,
parents would be well
advised to ration the good-
ies to avoid upset stomachs
- a few bites now and save
the -rest for tomorrow.
Motorists should be
especially alert at this time
of year. Children will be
out later than normal and


in their excitement they
may dart out between park-
ed cars and across streets
without looking.
Homeowners also can
contribute to a safe Hallo-
ween. Turn outside lights
on and remove obstacles
such as garbage cans, lawn
furniture and bicycles. Pets
should be brought Inside or
penned up where they can-
not frighten or cause harm
to the children.
Let's all work toward an
accident-free Halloween.

This is a medical message
from the Florida Medical
Association on behalf of
the doctors of Florida pre-
sented as a public service
feature of this publication.


Division of Law Enforce-
ment, said six arrests were
made and 26 warnings were
issued statewide over the
weekend for violations of the
hunting from road right-of-
ways rule which went into
effect July 1, 1983.
The rule states that the
display or use of a gun on or
upon the right-of-way of any
federal, state or county-
maintained road, whether
paved or otherwise, in a
manner capable of taking
wildlife is prohibited.
Goodson said that some of
the roads in some of the
wildlife management areas
have been exempted from
this rule, but hunters should
be certain to check the
individual regulations print-
ed onjthe wildlife manage-
ment area hunt maps, or ask
at the check station before
assuming a road is exempt.

Oct. 30

The Game and Fresh Wa-
ter Fish Commission would
like to remind hunters that
the first phase of dove season
closes October 30. The second

legal shooting hours will be
from one-half hour before
sunrise to sunset during the

which was taught by Lynn Ambrose, under the Gulf County Recreation program. In order to
qualify they each completed a basic course on firearm safety, and practiced target shooting
weekly. In order to earn the rank of "Pro-Marksman", each had to demonstrate a degree of
proficiency in accuracy in target shooting. Michael Ramsey was also awarded a trophy for be-
ing the top shooter in the class, with Gabriel Kimble being the first runner-up.

1 The Sharks made it 5-0 Fri-
e U day night as they showed the
,B Blountstown Tigers a
is [ balanced air and ground at-
a tack.
ee Shark quarterback Chris
a Butts aired out 202 yards of
B passing offense, completing
10 of 16 passes. The rushing
n unit of Josh Jenkins, Michael
Pittman, Curtis Ray and Sid-
ney Harris added another
149 yards to that figure, as
the Sharks tamed the Tigers
E 33-0.
For the second week in a
row, convincing victories
p | over the Sharks' foes have
pushed Port St. Joe up in the
state class AA poll. The
Sharks jumped three spots
this week to become the
I state's sixth-ranked team. In
earning this ranking, the
Sharks have displayed one of
the state's most prolific of-
fenses, scoring 165 points in
five games, countered by a
defense that is second to
none, yielding just one
touchdown thus far in the
season.
Friday night was no excep-
tion. It looked at first as
though the defensive unit
was in for a long night as
Blountstown drove the ball
all the way down to the
Shark 34 yard line. With
third and 10, Blountstown
took the ball up the middle
on a draw play, but the run-
ner was met by Michael
Quinn, who separated him
from the ball. Michael Pitt-
man jumped on the loose
ball, giving the Sharks a first
and 10 from their own 34
yard line.
Penalties prevented the
Sharks from advancing the
ball, so they punted the ball
away. With time running out
in the first quarter, the
Sharks' defense set up the
first score of the game. Josh
Jenkins intercepted a
Blountstown pass on the St.
Joe 25 yard line, and return-
ed it 50 yards down field to
the Tiger's 25 yard marker.
Eight plays later, Jenkins
Sto set scored from the three yard
against line, with 8:39 left in the se-
cond: period, giving the
Sharks a 6-0 lead. Butts' ex-
tra point kiclkattempt failed.
The Sharks didn't wait
long for their next score. On
their next possession, they
marched 79 yards in nine
plays, as Michael Pittman
pulled in a 12 yard Chris
Butts' pass to put the Sharks
up by 12 points, with 1:42 re-
maining in the half. Michael
.Pittman and Sidney Harris
joined forces on the drive, as
Pittman grabbed two Butts'
savail- passes for 28 yards,, and
Sfirst- rushed once for 15 yards.


Harris had two rushes in the
drive, one for 11 yards, and
another for 18, to set up the
touchdown pass on the
Tigers' 12 yard line.
Terry Woullard grabbed a
pass from quarterback Chris
Butts in the corner of the end
zone, as the Sharks went for
the two point conversion,
which gave them a 14-0 lead
to carry into the dressing
room at halftime.
Port St. Joe came out after
the half, and showed the
Tigers what the coaches had
told them during the inter-


Blountstown drove the ball
all the way down to the
Sharks' four yard line, but on
fourth down and goal, the
Sharks' defense held again.
With a first and ten from
their own five yard line, the
Sharks put together what
turned out to be their longest
scoring drive of the game.
Terry Woullard got it started
as he grabbed a Butt's pass
for nine yards; Josh Jenkins
then ran twice for six yards;
Michael Pittman grabbed a
Butts' pass for 20 yards. A
few plays later, Jenkins pull-


ed in a 12 yard fourth down
pass; then Pittman added 18
more with another pass
reception; and finally
Jenkins pulled in a nine yard
scoring pass with 5:37 re-
maining in the game. The ex-
tra point failed as the Sharks
increased the margin to 27-0.
St. Joe's final score was
set up by the defense as Tan
Smiley hit the Blountstown
quarterback, knocking the
ball loose and Adrian Lewis
recovered the fumble on the
Tigers' 26 yard line. On the
next play from scrimmage,


Sidney Harris (40) and Adrian Lewis ped the Tigers all night Friday, preventing

the kickoff and returned it to
the St. Joe 46 yard line. Nine
plays later, Terry Woullard
was on the receiving end of a
38 yard Butts' pass for the
Sharks' third touchdown of
the evening. It was
Woullard's second pass
reception in the drive as he
and Butts combined for 47
yards in the drive.:
Again, Sidney Harris bhad
big runs; one for 13 yards
and another for six, to keep
the drive alive. Butts' kick
for the extra point was good
as the Sharks jumped to a 21
pointlead early in the second
half.
Blountstown's biggest
scoring threat of the game
came early in the fourth
quarter, as the Tigers '
jumped on a Shark fumble '
on the Sharks' 26 yard line.


Michael Pittman is on the receiving end of a Chris Butts'
pass as he catches the ball for the first touchdown late in the
second quarter.

ball back to the Tigers' 41.
Chris Butts once again found
Terry Woullard on the next
play, as they connected for a
41 yard pass for the final
score of the ball game. The
extra point kick failed, and
the Sharks held on to win
33-0.
Defensive stand-outs of the
game were Adrian Lewis
with seven tackles and five
assists; Michael Quinn and

The Purple Pegasus Poet-
ry Club is sponsoring the first
of a series of contests of this
year. It started October 17
and will last through Novem-
ber 14. All entering poems
are to be given to Renee


Smith. The rules for the
contest are as follows:
The poem must be original
and written by the submit-
ter; It must never have been
published; Purple Pegasus
Poetry Club members are
not eligible; The poems may
be on any subject and in any
form; The poem can not have
won any other contest; An
out of town judge will judge
the contest and all decisions
are final; The poems must be
typed single spaced. Two
copies of each entry are
required, with name, ad-
dress, and phone number in
the top right hand corner of
one copy; There will be a
$5.00 first prize. First, Sec-
ond, and Third Place winners
will receive certificates-
The reason the prizes are so
small is because major con-
tests require that entries to
their contests have not won


much money.

The Senior Class thanks
everyone for their support at
the dance last Friday night.
We, I being a Senior myself,
are working very hard to
reach our goal of being able
to take Greyhound buses to
Grad Night in Orlando the
coming spring, and possible
even staying overnight. We
are far from our goal and ask
everyone's continued sup-
port. We are a small class,
but have lots of enthusiasm.
We know we can make it with
a combined effort. Thanks
again!
