County Likes Incinerator



As Solution to Garbage Handling Problem


E. F Gunn, who is assisting the County and the City of
Port St. Joe in coming up with a design and plans for a
garbage compaction and transfer station in the south end of
Gulf County, made his report and presented a preliminary
drawing of the compaction station Tuesday night. The
Commission asked Gunn to put the compaction station on
hold for a short while after he told them of an alternative,
using an idle incinerator at the City's Wastewater
Treatment Plant, which Gunn said would handle all of Gulf
County's garbage "and then some".
The county is under orders from the Department of
Environmental Regulation to stop using land-fill areas in
south Gulf County as garbage disposal sites because they do
not meet state specifications as disposal sites and no other
property can be found in the area which will meet state
standards.
The only alternative, until the incinerator idea was
presented by Gunn, was shipping all garbage generated in
south Gulf to the Buckhorn landfill area in extreme north
Gulf County. The buckhorn site is approved as a landfill
area by DER.
With Gunn Tuesday night was Les Rayburn, of
Rayburn and Company of Swainsboro, Georgia. Rayburn
had just sold and delivered the county some garbage
collection trailers and is familiar with the operation of
incinerators as garbage disposal methods. Rayburn
verified Gunn's statement that the incinerator, which is not
now in use at the Wastewater Treatment Plant could handle
all of the county's garbage disposal with a few inexpensive
modifications. Rayburn said a container would have to be
build to dump the garbage in, a conveyor to transport it into
the incinerator and a hammermill to break up larger pieces
and puncture cans which might explode in the heat of the
incinerator if they are left closed. "Otherwise all you would
need is an inexpensive knuckle-boom loader installed at the
site to pick out any discharged appliances or other large
metal pieces.' You would also need these items at a
compactor site."
y Rayburn said, "You already have 99. percent of what
you would need. There are many cities who would like to
have that $1 million piece of equipment to handle their
garbage".
Gunn said he had just started looking at the incinerator
possibility in earnest in the past three week, after'lhe Was '
asked to do so by the Port St. Joe'City Commission. "They
told me to find out what I could about the possibilities but
not to spend a lot of money doing it. That's what I've been
doing, and all I can find out so far is encouraging".
Gunn pointed out that Bay County is having garbage
burial problems with DER also. "Everybody along this
coast is having problems. Most of them will probably have
to wind up using incinerators." Gunn said his preliminary
research into the matter has shown the incinerator could
handle all of Gulf County's garbage disposal "In, about two
hours of operation each day."
"Won't it cost a lot of money to heat that incinerator up
every day for just two hours of operation?" Commissioner
Billy Branch asked.
Gunn replied that total operation costs for the two hours
daily shouldn't run over $30-35 a day. Gunn and Rayburn
had already told the Commission a compactor site would
cost considerably more than this to operate.
Rayburn said he hadn't gone over the incinerator
carefully. "I've only been here today and I've just taken a
walk-by look, but I estimate you can modify the present
incinerator for less than a third of what you will have to
spend for a compactor pit and will have a better operation
out of the deal."
Rayburn said Disney World installed two incinerators
likheth e one here, when they opened, to burn their garbage
and they are still using them for this purpose.
Rayburn said more and more communities are going to
incinerators as a means of disposing of garbage in an
approved method and for ease of operation.


Gunn told the Commission there would be no disposal of
ash, since residue from the incinerator would be routed
through the Wastewater Treatment Plant and disposed of
there.


The Commission was unanimous in its keen interest in
the incinerator plan and said they would meet with the City
of Port St. Joe in just a short while to talk further about the
system.


Fire gutted and destroyed the contents of this house, damaged by fire last Thursday night in a blaze, which was
the home of Willie Joe Walker on Avenue E. The home was reported at 11:00 p.m. -Star photo.


Night Fires Damage Buildings


Two fires Thursday night and early Friday morning,
destroyed a-'home on Avenue E, in North Port St. Joe and a
utility storage house in Oak Grove.
According to Volunteer Fire Department chief Bascom
Hamm, the home of Willie Joe Walker, on Avenue E was
reported on fire at 11:00 p.m., Thursday night, "When we
got there, the house was on fire all over. We had to place our
attention to saving the two houses on either side", Hamm
said.
Walker's concrete block home was completely gutted


arid the house and its contents were a complete loss.
Hamm said cause of tie fire is under investigation.
At 4:30 Friday morning, an alarm sounded, calling the
Fire Department to Oak Grove where a storage house
behind the home of Charles Simmons was burning.
Again, the fire was not discovered and reported until it
was too far underway for the Department to do much about
saving the building or its contents.
Hamm said the cause of this fire is also under
investigation.


Trick or Treat


Safety

Kids will be out in droves Monday night for their
annual Trick or Treat for hallowe'en activities. This
means there will be kids all over the streets, walking in
the roads, on the sidewalks, on the road shoulders,
crossing the streets ... and not watching where they
are going.
This puts the responsibility on the motorist to drive
very carefully Monday night from dark on through
about 9:00 p.m., to avoid hitting any of these children
out having a good time.
Sheriff Ken Murphy said there are other safety
factors to be considered, also, at Trick or Treat time.
Although there haven't been any serious injuries in
Port St. Joe during Trick or Treat, Sheriff Murphy says
taking care and being alert can prevent an accident
from happening this year or in the future.
....Sheriff Murphy said the Florida Sheriff's Associa-
tion has issued a list of safety tips which will allow the
kids to have a good time and their parents to be
relieved when -they come home safe and sound.
-Try to Trick or Treat when it is still light outside.
With the time change Sunday night, this will be hard to
do, but Sheriff Murphy says it is especially advisable
for the smaller children.
-Wear a costume that makes it easy for you to
walk, see and be seen.
.-If you must go out at night, make certain that
your costume is light in color.
-Carry a flashlight so you can see and be seen
-easily.- ..
-Use reflective tape on your costume so people
driving cars can see you.
-A face mask will keep you from seeing well.
Take off your mask before you cross a street.
-Why not use make-up instead of a mask?
-Have a parent, older brother or sister go Trick or
Treating with you.
-If someone older cannot go with you, Trick or
Treat with a group of children.
-Plan your Trick or Treat route ahead of time.
Pick streets that are well-lighted. .
-Tell your family on which streets you will be
Trick or Treating..
--Cross only at corners. Never, cross the street
between parked cars or in the middle of the block.'
-If there is no sidewalk, walk facing traffic.
-Walt until you get home to sort, check, and eat
your treats.
-Be especially careful about talking to strangers
and approaching unknown vehicles during hallowe'en.
In reference to the inspection of Trick or Treat
candy, we would like to recommend the following:
-Do not eat any candy which has been home-made
and this is also true for baked items.
-Do not eat fruit which has been given to you.
-If any candy wrappers look as though they have
been disturbed, disregard the candy.
S -With small children make sure that they do not
eat any candy while Trick or Treating, it is difficult for
children to sometimes avait for parents to check their
treats.


Although official word still
hasn't come from the United
States Government, unoffi-
cial sources of communic-
,tion have assured two Port
St. Joe families their young.

safe and sound after the
disastrous blast .which level-

U.S. Marines and Navy men
early Sunday morning.
Mr. and Mrs. John R.


Shirah, Sr., of 217 Ninth
Street, were the first to learn
their son, Sgt. William F.
Shirah, 23, was not injured in
the attack. Shirah, who is
now serving in Beirut, Leb-
anon, had been there for five
months and is looking for-
ward to coming back to the
States in mid-November or
early December.
It was late Tuesday eve-
ning before Mr. and Mrs.


Theo Johnson, 1803 Garrison
Avenue, learned their son,
Keith, was safe.
Johnson said he had re-
peatedly called Washington,
D.C., but could get no official
word on the condition of his
son, other than to say that if
he was with his rifle com-
pany at the time of the
attack, he was safe.

operator in Beirut, calling for
somebody to take his mes-

Keith, a Lance Corporal,

three years and, like Shirah,
is due to be rotated back to
the United States in mid-
November or early Decem-

County Authorizes Attempt to Obtain Grant


The Gulf County Commis-
sion gave Julian Webb, a
writer. of Government
grants applications, from
Chipley, the signal to go
ahead with making applica-
tion for a grant for Gulf
County.
Webb, who was recently
retained by the City of Port
St. Joe to try to secure funds
for housing rehabilitation for
Port St. Joe, also suggested
he contact the County Com-
mission about seeking a
grant to construct a Senior
Citizens' center.
Webb made the proposal to
the Commission Tuesday
night, pointing out there was


no charge for his making the
application. He asked only
that his firm be designated as
the administrator of the
grant should it be approved.
"This is where I make my
fees", Webb said.
When asked what his fees
were, he replied the grants
usually allow up to 18 percent
for administration fees but
that his fees have never run
over 12 percent. "The fee is
commensurate with the com-
plexity of the grant and its
administration", he said.
Webb said, "Frankly, your
possibilities aren't too good
this year. We will have to
apply under the Jobs Bill,

The nation changed over to the Daylight Saving Time
back on the last Sunday in April, when the clocks were set

Cut- Ups


Still Semi-Activ
These two experienced cut-ups are
still at it after a total of 124 years of
cutting hair.
Recently, George Cooper, a fixture in
the barbering business here in Port St.
Joe, reached his 90th birthday and still
gets his snips in almost every week at his
chair in the barber shop.
Between the two barbers, they have
seen a lot of hair to cut over the years.
Both are now part-time in the shop, but
still active. Nelson says he has asked
Cooper to retire him, but Cooper replies
he has to retire first because he is the
oldest.
Cooper seems destined never to
retire.
Nelson, himself, is no spring chicken,
in his words. "I started barbering 56
years ago and I'm 70 years old now."
Nelson said he cut hair as a sideline until
he went into the Army at the first of
World War II and when it was found out
he could barber, his sideline became a
full-time job.
Nelson said he still has his old hand

operated clippers he carried all through
the War and through the European
theatre with him.
Cooper, who started barbering 68
years ago, says he, threw his hand
clippers away. "Some day I might get
caught with a fellow desperate for a
hair-cut and the power would go off. I
don't ever want to have to use those
things again". Cooper now even uses an
electric clipper to shave around the ears.
Cooper says he started barbering in
Meigs, Georgia in 1915. "My family lived
on the farm and barbering was a relief
after the long and hard hours of chores on
the farm."
"I've enjoyed all the 68 years",
Cooper said. "The worst -thing about
barbering is trying to cut the hair of a
crying child who won't hold still. The best
thing is meeting the many, many people
you come in contact with every day."
Nelson echoed Cooper's statements
recalling that when he started barbering,
"A haircut was 25 cents and a shave 10

Plenty of Money for


UselesU,

Motorists who have those later
model cars which have the miles
per hour printed in both metric and
good old American designations on
their speedometer can put the
metric numbers to use in the near
future, according to a recent
announcement by the Department
of Transportation.
The DOT has announced that it
is getting materials ready to put up
speed limit signs in metric as well
as the conventional designation
signs.
This is the same DOT which
can't find the money to resurface
some of the more dillapidated
roads in Gulf and other counties.
This is the same DOT which
planted brown top millet on the
shoulders of State Road 71 north of
Cypress Creek to Wewahitchka and
can't find the money to keep. it
mowed down.
We don't now why the brown
top millet was planted on the road
shoulder in the first place unless
the DOT had plans to keep it
harvested and sell it as cattle feed,
thus reducing their cash fow
problems. The only problem with
this plan is that they do not-keep it
mowed and it gives SR 71 the
appearance of a cow pasture with a
path cut through it.
If we were to have car trouble
along SR 71, we would be reluctant
to pull off the road as the shoulders
appear so wild and varmint-filled
we would be afraid of being snake


Soviet Men


Last: week, the world was
imlarned over the fact that two
Soviet cosmonauts were stranded
1 n a space station due to the
Sfialfunction of some of their space
hardware.
If the world was abnormally
:.concerned over two men being
stranded in space with no way to
get back down to earth, think how
the two men felt.
The Soviet government, exhib-
iting the same unconcern for
human life they displayed at the
shooting down of the Korean
passenger jetliner, was more con-
cerned the world would think their
hardware inferior, than they were
over the safety of the two men.
It must have been some
comfort to the two men to know
their government was more wor-
ried over world image than they

bitten. Then there is also the
problem of getting lost in the lush
millet, or not being seen by some
passing motorist who might render
assistance if he knew you were
there.
Once upon a time, the DOT
came out with a cost sheet making
public just how much it cost the
State of Florida each and every
year for people to use their signs
for target practice for their shot-
guns, rifles and pistols. The sum
isn't at our finger-tips right at this
moment, but we remember it as
being a staggering amount.
If the DOT insists in going
through with its announced plans of
putting up speed limit signs in
metric language (when so few of
our people understand metric and
think a meter is something you
measure electricity with) is one of
the agencies biggest boondoggles,
in our opinion.
Couldn't that money be spent to
more advantage byputting some of
our roads in better shape? Only
week before last the DOT put out
an announcement the Panhandle
would receive only a pittance in
road work for the next year
because DOT didn't have the
money to spend on the roads.
Appently they have the money.
They had just rather spend it for
signs nobody will pay any attention
to rather than spend it on chuck-
holes in the roads which every
motorist has called to his attention
. joltingly!


Expendable
. were for .the.safetyof thetwo men.
It's a pity they weren't that worried
when their officer gave orders to
shoot down the Korean airliner just
because it had strayed over "their"
sky.
It must also be a traumatic
experience to be more than a
hundred miles above the earth with
no means of getting back down ...
not even a parachute.
Remember when the four
astronauts were burned to death in
an exploding space ship at Cape
Cannaveral? It was splashed at
the top of every news outlet in the
nation, letting the world know that,
in the United States, men were
more mourned than machines.
No doubt it also gave some
amount of comfort to the surviving
families to know the entire nation
was saddened by the disaster.

The Grim Reaper

BY SHAD PHANTRY
V J4


I have been wondering
about a lot of things lately.
One thing I have wondered
about is how it would feel to
be rich. Another thing I have
given considerable thought to
and wondered about is, how it
would feel to be back on the
farm again. And the thoughts
and wonderment go on and
on.
For the past few years the
predominant, nagging
thought on my mind has been
the "grim reaper." And I
want to say at the outset that
I am scared to die. Why, it
scares me half to death just
thinking about it! There's no
wonder that mid-life is such a
hard time in a person's life.
It's a well established fact
that dying is as much a part
of living as paying the light
bill. There are other things
that we have to do, like go to
work and get up in the
morning and pay for new
trucks. But, to me, there is
nothing quite so final as
facing the grim reaper. And I
wonder why.
There are a lot of things
that I wonder about when I

Tapper Is

Doing Well
George Tapper, who under-
went surgery in Piedmont
Hospital in Atlanta last Wed-
nesday, was reported yester-
day by his wife, Amy, to be
recovering just fine. Mrs.
Tapper said on the phone
yesterday, "He's getting a
bath right now from a pretty
nurse, or he could come to
the; phone."
Tapper underwent what
doctors described as some
"clean-up and corrective sur-
gery" after his lung surgery
'of aniohth -g6;' a ..
Mrs. Tapper said she does-
n't know their exact day they
will be returning home, yet,
but said, "It should be in just
a few days".

Another Arrest

In Motor Thefts
Marine Patrol Buck Rich-
ter told The Star yesterday,
another arrest had been
made and more outboard
motors recovered in solving
the outboard motor theft ring
which has operated in the
Port St. Joe area for nearly a
year. The ring was broken
with three arrests last week.
Richter said the other man
arrested in connection with
the thefts was Donald Gene
Rhames, 52, of Howard
Creek. Rhames has been
charged with two counts of
grand theft.


think of death. If it's so
wonderful, as some people
claim, why is it that no one
wants to go? Even those that
have claimed to have been
part the way there cherish
and cling to mortal life with a
passion. If it was so wonder-
ful and serene, why are they
not in any rush to go back?
The main reason I fear
death, I think, is that I love
life so much. True, I have no
idea what lies beyond the last
sunset, nor am I in any rush
to find out. The way I feel and
the life I live right now suits


me to a "T" and I had just as
soon stay around for a few
more years...quite a few
more!
I have done everything I
know of to try and overcome
my fear of death. Every-
thing, that is, short of driving
my car off the Highland View
bridge. I'm a gambler of
sorts, but not that much of
one.
I have, however, done
other things to try and
overcome, my fear. I have
visited graveyards and read
the names and dates of birth


and death engraved so neatly
on the tombstones. I have
walked down dark, lonely
roads late at night where I
thought a wild pack of
Indians might be waiting in
ambush. I even went so far as
to pick a fight with my wife
just so I could get a close
feeling of what it would feel
like to face Mr. Grim Reap-
er. To date, however, nothing
has worked and the nagging
fear persists.
I wonder if there will be
any fresh, fried grouper (like
my wife cooked tonight)
served in the great clubhouse
in the sky. Will they have
collard greens and mashed
potatoes and freshly brewed
iced tea and corn bread to go
with it?
How about the golf cour-
ses? I hope they will have two
or three, at least. And, will
they cut the greens early
each morning? Will the wea-
ther be as nice and warm and


will the breeze off the water
be as fresh smelling and the
fishing as good there as it is
here? Surely there will be
fishing and hunting.
What about the music? Will
we be allowed to listen to
some of the good country
music that we hear down
here? We should be able to
because there are a lot of
singers already there.
I also wonder about chew-
ing tobacco; will it be
allowed? If it's not, there are
going to be a lot of disap-
pointed golfers and fisher-
men. I wonder what Mr. Levi
Garrett will do when he gets
there if no one is allowed to
take a little chew? He's shore
gonna be disappointed...and
some of us, tool
Considering all I have
heard about the Great Be-
yond, it should be a fine
place. If, on the other hand, it
ain't a lot like Dixie, then I
don't want to go!

don't know if I have it or not.
Some of the symptoms: sweaty
palms and trembling hands brought
on by an excessive fear that nobody
reads anymore and that those who do
don't believe a word of it.
That's a problem allright.
It's sort of like the chillblaines;

I could make some arrangements to

the description is done.
I know I don't have the journal-
ist's neurosis. My hands are so dry, I
have to lick my fingers to turn a page
in a book or a newspaper. If my hands
were sweaty, I could turn the page
without any trouble. I might even be
able to count money, if I had some to
count. Come to think of it, if I could get


little now. Will Rogers said it isn't
bragging if it's so. Dizzy Dean adds to
that by saying, in his sage way: "It

My hands aren't trembling. They
are as steady as a rock with not even a
quiver or a hint of a shake.
I was always proud of this
situation until I read this list of
neurosis and found out that if I was


going to be a journalist, I was going to
have to have sweaty palms and
trembling hands.
I guess I'm just a failure on both
counts.

I RECEIVED A clipping in the
mail the other day, written by a
columnist out in California entitled:
"Printing error not as prevalent as it
etaoin shurlu".
The writer of the piece had to be of
mature middle age, for want of a
more kind way to express it. He
remembered the Linotype machine,
upon which all newspaper type was
formerly set until about 15 or 20 years
ago. As recent as about 10 years ago,
most of the Linotypes had disappear-
ed from the newspaper scene, and
took with them, Etaoin Shrdlu.
On these new-fangled computer
typesetters with the electronic brains,
an operator or reporter has to work at
it to come up with an "Etaoin
Shrudlu". He has to be careful where
his fingers light, or he has something
besides "Etaoin Shrdlu".


The veteran type-setter, on the
other hand, remembers well his
fingers wandering off on the wrong
keys and with an exasperated zip, zip,
down the keyboard with his "e" finger
and his "t" finger, and, voilal "Etaoin
Shrdlu"! It was just as easy as that.
Some of the veterans, who burned
their fingers regularly on a hot type
slug, picking it up to read it for errors,
still hate to give up the old clanking
monster, which was almost as de-
pendable as the seasons. With these
electronic giz-mos, you never know
from one minute to the next if it is
going to continue to work.
Also, it is most unnatural to write
"Etaoin Shrdlu" on the keyboard of
an electronic one-eyed bucket of
transistors and chips, which the
printing industry now calls, typeset-
ters.
A true typesetter, will always
have a metal-melting pot hanging on
its side, run smoothly after oiling,

Cooper's Barber Shop has changed,
too.
Cooper says he first came to Port St.
Joe in 1937 and opened up in the old
Lawson building, which stood where
Thames Jewelry now stands. It was a two
story frame building which doubled as
Lawson's home, a few sinall businesses,
such as. Cooper's and an upstairs


rooming ,house. The building burned in
early 1941 and, Cooper moved to his
present 'location into another frame
building. It burned also in late 1949 and
the present building was built in the same
location as the burned one. Cooper and
Nelson said they moved into the present
building in 1950 and have been there ever
since. Nelson says he is even using the
same chair which was set in the building
in 1950. They don't make them like that
anymore.

month since she mailed out
the cards to those who faced
purging from the county
voting list. "Of those mailed
out, 365 have not returned
their cards. You expressed a
desire 'to print the names in

do that, tonight."
The names are of people
who have not cast a ballot in

ini bench was a Corinthian
column from which the
couple partook of the Lord's
Super. The column on the

pleted the encirclement of

sed were arrangements of
fresh greenery giving an
aura to the overall setting.

ed: by a pair of brass pew
candelabra accented with
ribbons.

tie.
Given in marriage by her
parents and escorted to the
altar by her father, the bride
descended the aisle in a

shioned from silk organza.

adorned in Brussells lace
complemented the sheer

ques and English net fell into

l Sharks Lose


First Game


Port St. Joe's Sharks ap-
parently spent too much time
looking ahead to the Wakulla
game and not enough to the
Walton game last Friday
night, and took that long trip
home with their first loss of
the year at the hands of the
Walton County Braves.
The loss knocked the
Sharks out of the state
rankings and landed them in
the "honorable mention"
column.
The Sharks, which had
gone four games with only
seven points scored against
them, felt the Braves strike
five times as they put 30
points on the scoreboard
while the Sharks answered
with only 14.
It was that kind of night. It
seemed the Sharks couldn't
keep anything going and


Defeated 30-14 by Walton County Braves


everything the Braves touch-
ed. turned into points.
On the third play of the
game, Robert Taylor inter-
cepted a Joel Deitz pass on
the Braves' 33 yard line and
it looked as if the Sharks
were in business early in the
game. On the Sharks' first
play from Scrimmage, Mike
Pittman fumbled the hand-
off and Ed Bowers picked up
the ball for the Braves.
Again, the Sharks had the
Braves stopped after only
one first down and a punting
situation was in order from
the Shark 49. A Shark line-
man moved, however, and
the Braves had their first
down. With Ken Washington
gulping up real estate 10
yards at a time, the Braves


were on the Shark 29 .when
Deitz hit Ivan Hogans with a
pass on the Shark 13. The
Sharks jumped offside to
give the Braves five more
yards and Washington scoot-
ed to the St. Joe one yard line
for a first down. On the first
play, Deitz squeezed through
the middle of the line for the
first score of the game, 6-0.
Glenn Klava's kick for the
extra point was blocked.
The Sharks were on their
way to answering the Brave
touchdown, when a, Chris
Butts pass was deflected by a
Walton defender and inter-
cepted by Chris Campbell as
the first period was winding
down.
The Braves took over on


Walton County's Ames Williams (33) was one of the
leading ground gainers against the Sharks in Friday night's
loss to the Braves at DeFuniak. He is shown as he eludes four
Shark tacklers. -Star photos

Kenny Price, age 21, of
Wewahitchka, and a 17-year-
old Wewahitchka juvenile
were arrested and charged
with delivery of a controlled
substance.
The incident occurred
when Price allegedly sold
some pills that, he led the
juvenile to believe were
"speed". The juvenile then
allegedly re-sold the pills at
the Wewahitchka High
School. The students involv-
ed in the taking of the pills
reported the affect as mak-
ing them sleepy and dizzy.

Charged In

Sale of

Cocaine


Wednesday of last week,
S Harry Wade Shular, age 22,
S of Overstreet, was arrested
and charged with sale of
S cocaine, possession of 'co-
[ caine and carrying a con-
q cealed firearm, by investiga-
4 tor Phil McLeod of the Gulf
3 County Sheriff's Depart-
4 ment.
4 According to Sheriff Ken
Murphy, the arrest was the
g result of an incident that
occurred on the beach behind
the Wonder Bar on St. Joe
Beach. Investigator Phil Mc-
Leod and Deputy James
Mock observed the alleged
sale of cocaine on the beach.
After Shular left the area, he
was stopped, arrested, and
brought to the Gulf County
Jail. A search of the defend-
ant revealed another pack-
age of alleged cocaine hidden
in the defendant's pants.
Shular was arraigned before
Judge David Taunton and
bond was set at $50,000.

S nior club champions trophy,

Drive Carefully On
Halloween Night


According to Sheriff Murphy,
until a lab report is returned,
no one knows exactly what
the pills are.
The incident was investi-
gated by Investigator Charlie
Hill of the Gulf County
Sheriff's Department and
Jim Bozeman of Division of
Youth Services. The juvenile
was turned over to the
Division of Youth Services
and placed in a detention
center in Panama City. Price
was arraigned before Judge
David Taunton and bond was
set at $500 cash.


their own 47 yard line, and
sparked by an 18 yard pass
play to Don Phillips and a 14
yard gallop by Ames Wil-
liams, the Braves were on
the scoreboard again, 13-0.
The Sharks then took over
and drove to the Brave 36
using a screen pass to
Pittman as their big play.
But the Sharks ran out of
downs.
It took just two plays for
the Braves to score again and
put the Sharks deep in the
hole, 20-0 at half time.
A pass to Phillips over the
middle and a long gainer
around the end for Wes
Wilkerson and the Braves
had a 20-0 lead at halftime.
The Sharks' play seemed to
be dead and flat the first half,
but they came back in the
fourth period with an offen-
sive spurt, but it was too little
and too late.
In the meantime, the Wal-
ton Braves scored again on
the first play of the fourth
period on a 22 yard run by
Washington and again mid-
way through the period on a
42 yard field goal by Klava.
The Sharks then put to-
gether a 60 yard scoring
drive, with Butts passing to
Terry Woullard, a draw to
Pittman and a six yard
plunge by Jenkins had the
Sharks within seven yards of
the goal line. A short toss to
Tony Gathers put the Sharks
on the scoreboard for the
first time.
The Shark defense dug in
and made the Braves punt
after three downs, from their
own 25 yard line. Starting
from 'their own 48 yard line,
Pittman rambled to the
Brave 42. Then Woullard took
a Butts flare pass and
carried it to the Walton 25.


With nine seconds left in the
game, Pittman hauled in a
Butts pass for the score.
Butts ran the ball over on
a keeper play for two points
as the game ending horn
sounded.
FRIDAY NIGHT
Friday night, the Sharks
will take that long trip to
Tallahassee, to meet the
Florida High Demons in a
District game. So far, the


Sharks have one win and no
losses in their district. Game
time will be 8:00, Port St. Joe
time.

Hallowe'en

Treats at

White City

The youth of the White City
First Baptist Church will
once again sponsor their
annual Halloween treat for
all the people of White City
and the surrounding com-
munities. This year they will
have a "Haunted Forest".
The activities will begin at
approximately 6:30 on Mon-
day, October 31st. It will be
located behind the White City
Community Building which
is located on the corner of
Stebel Avenue and Cedar
Street.
As in years past, it will
feature a haunted graveyard.
Also this year there will be a
fish pond for the children so
they can catch lots of treats.
A lot of hard work has gone
into this project, so they
would like for everyone to
come by and visit the
"Haunted Forest". Admis-
sion is free.

Port St. Joe High's fighting
Sharks, ranked sixth in the
state AA poll, lost their first,
unfortunate game to Walton
County last Friday night as
the Braves defeated them by
a score of 30-14. The Sharks
have been practicing really
hard and truly performing
well. This, let's just say, was
a "boost to the Sharks'
readiness." Everyone is al-
ready beginning to get fired
up for the encounter we will
have with Florida High to-
morrow night. We're ready
for 'em and we're still behind
our mighty Sharks! Friday's
game will be held there
beginning at 8:00 EST, so
everyone come and support
our Sharks. Good luck, fel-
lows We're still behind you
100 percent so show 'em what
you're made of!

The St. Joe Jr. Varsity
Sharks lost to Jinks Jr. High
last Thursday by a score of
33-8. They will play Mowat
next Thursday there at 7:00
:EST.
The Jr. High Sharks were
also defeated by Wewa last
Thursday with the game
ending up at 12-0. They will
:play Apalach here Thursday
at 6:00 EST.

stered this Saturday to all
Juniors and Seniors pre-


viously scheduled to take this
exam. The SAT is usually a
very important exam in
determining whether or not a
student may be accepted into
a major college or univer-
sity. A student's score on the
SAT is quite often required
when applying to get into
many big colleges, so all
students planning to go to
major colleges or universi-
ties need to think about, and
prepare for taking the SAT.

A lot is coming up on the
agenda for Port St. Joe High
so, to keep up with "what's

tuned into the SCOOP! Until

Park Growing In Popularity


Shark


"The State is planning to
spend nearly $90,000 for
renovations and repairs and
some $325,000 to build eight
new cabins in the park area",
he told Rotarians.
Although the park is pri-
marily aimed at outdoor
camping activities, two ren-
tal cabins have been avail-
able since the park opened.
"They are so popular, it is an
accident if somebody finds
them vacant and rentable",
Crook said. Each of the new
cabins will sleep eight peo-
ple.
Ranger Crook said the


park now has 119 camping
sites and registered 61,000
camping in the facilities last
year. The park has 2,500
acres within its boundaries,
with 1,600 of those acres set
aside as a wilderness area to
attract hikers, bird watch-
ers, etc.
Crook said one of the


upcoming attractions at St.
Joseph which attracts a large
amount of interest is the
migration of the Monarch
butterfly. The park area is a
rest area for the butterflies
before they take off across
the water to their South
American winter home.
"This migration and that of


hawks, has been publicised in
this area and draws a large
amount of interest", he said.
Guests of the club were
Wheelettes, Debra Wilhite
and Kim Robinson; honorary
Rotarian Jimmy Greer and
IKeith Fields, Joe Johnson
and Abby Walters, all of
Tallahassee.


T. H. Stone Memorial State
Park rated fourth of all state
parks this year in numbers of
overnight campers, accord-
ing to assistant superinten-
dent Ranger Joe Cook,
speaking to the Rotary Club
last Thursday.
Ranger Cook said the con-
tinued growth of the popular-
ity of the state park on St.
Joseph Peninsula is causing
the State of Florida to spend
a sizeable amount of funds
between now and the next
spring and summer eampint
season in order to accommo-
date more people.
