Not Filed by Local People; Ask


Sheriff to Investigate Matter /4


What started out as a
discrimination suit against
the City of Port St. Joe last
week, was expanded into a
suit being filed in four more
I, separate cases against Gulf
County and three of its
offices.
Sheriff Ken Murphy told
The Star Thursday his office,
the county, the Supervisor of
Elections and the Tax Collec-
tor had each received the
same notice of suit on the
same day the City received
its notice.
"I took the trouble to go
see the parties who supposed-
ly signed the complaint, and
they tell me they knew
nothing about the charges",
Murphy said.
All of the notices were
signed by E. L. Fleming and
the "Voter's League". Mur-

this time and officers of the

"Fleming said somebody

Murphy said.
Fleming and officers of

made a formal request of
Murphy that his department

Two Men Hurt Badly In


White City Accident


Two men are still in intensive care in a
Panama City hospital after an accident on
the northern approach to the White City
drawbridge last Wednesday night.
According to Florida Highway Patrol
spokesman, Al Harrison, who investigated
the accident, Robert R. Chumney of
Phenix City, Alabama, faced a charge of
driving under the influence and an uncertain
future from an injury which has him
paralyzed from the neck down. Chumney
also suffered severe facial lacerations in the
crash.
Wiley I. Post, of Columbus, Georgia has
serious internal injuries and had California
warrants charging him with child stealing,
catch up with him as a result of the accident.
According to Harrison, the two men


were driving a pick-up truck, pulling a
trailer loaded with building material, to
Apalachicola, where they were going to
work on a camp. Chumney, who was
driving the pick-up, ran into the back of a
chip truck, driven by Arvel Copeland of
Bristol. Copeland had stopped his truck at
the draw span, waiting for the barricade
arms to be raised, when his truck was struck
from behind by Chumney's vehicle.
The pick-up ran up under the trailer,
shearing off the cab. The impact spun the
pick-up around into the oncoming traffic
lane, still stuck under the trailer.
Port St. Joe ambulance and rescue
squad removed both Chumney and Post
from the pick-up and took them to the
hospital for treatment.

Calhoun Favors

Dam's Removal
Calhoun County this week took an official position
regarding the future of the Dead Lakes Dam near
Wewahitchka.
In a letter to the Gulf County Commission, the
Calhoun Board declared themselves as supporters of
the move to remove the dnam. The;Calhoun Board is the
first group of elected officials to declare themselves Jn
* the- intro esy which has-been raging-fora year.
The letter also urges Gulf to join Calhoun county in
placing the question on e ballot in the 1984 to get an
expression from the people on the matter.
*Although the Gulf County Commission has been .
interested in the removal battle and has offered
assistance in operation of the Dead Lakes' drawdown
gates, they have not officially declared their position in
the dam removal question.
The Dead Lakes, fed by the Chipola River, lie in
both Gulf and Calhoun counties, with the major part of
the popular sports fishing lake being in Gulf County.

Some Troublemakers



In Our Midst1 L
Vsa e rs.d'


It appears now as if someone
signed the names of local people
and organizations to a complaint
which has been issued against the
.City of Port St. Joe and nearly all
the county offices of Gulf County.
z Last week, in reporting the
discrimination notice which had
been filed against the City of Port
St. Joe, we were unaware several
of the Gulf County offices in the
courthouse had received a similar
notice bearing the same charges as
had been filed against the City of
Port St. Joe.
We find also that the local
black population knows nothing
about the notice. The one whose
hame is typed on the form as the
complaining person and the organ-
ization officers were just as sur-
prised as were Gulf county and City
officials over the notice coming
from the Equal Employment Op-
portunity Commission in Miami.
: The question is, who is signing
the notices? Who is filing the
charges? Who has nothing better to
~io than file charges which have no
foundation in fact, causing our
local governments some amount of
trouble, whether or not the charges
lre founded.


When such charges are filed,
the office of EEOC proceeds as if
the agency listed as the offending
party were guilty. It's not, "Inno-
cent until proven guilty". In such
cases as this, it's, "Guilty until
proven innocent". The burden of
proving that innocence lies on the
defendant. It's the expense and
energy and resources of the
charged party which must be put to
work to prove the charges false.
This means, you, the taxpayer
of Port St. Joe, black and white,
and the tax payer of Gulf County,
black and white, must bear the
expense of proving these notices
unfounded and showing they have
no basis of local origin. Local
interests must use money they
could use better for positive
purposes, proving these charges
were the product of some prank
player or someone who had a grind
to publicize somewhere other than
in Gulf County.
We don't like it. We have
enough legitimate expenses and
legitimate problems which we face
everyday, to be- bothered by
nuisances which benefit nobody
except keep the clerks at EEOC
with something to do.


A Time for Holidays


November is one of our favor-
ite months because it introduces a
period of holidays which are our
favorites.
Thanksgiving on the fourth
Thursday of the month and the
prelude to Christmas which falls
within the month following, are
holiday seasons without equal.
For a genuine, time off,
celebrating holiday period, you"



Positive Action

The politicians thought
they had President Reagan
right where they wanted him
when the U.S. Marines invad-
ed Granada.
Since that time, public
opinion has been such that it
isn't any secret to learn the
people of the U.S. are glad
their country finally did some-
thing positive about our off-
shore problems, for a change.
Isn't it strange how our
backing of the President's
action has even taken the
bluster out of Fidel Castro?
K J


can't beat nor even hold a candle to
these two days of celebration and
pausing to reflect on all the good
things which have fallen our way
during the proceeding year.
Also, if you like a good parade,
and can't get your fill in November,
here in Port St. Joe, you can't be
satisfied with parades. You are
insatiable.
We started off the last week of
October with the Hallowe'en par-
ade. Last Friday was the Home-
coming parade. Friday, the veter-
ans will parade in downtown Port
St. Joe calling our attention to our
veterans and the price they paid for
our country. The first of December,
the Christmas parade, the grand-
daddy of all parades here in Port
St. Joe, will be an event of the first
Saturday of the month.
So, parade lovers, you have
exposure to four parades in just a
few days more than a month, here
in Port St. Joe.
Blend the holidays with the
parades during November. and
December, and you have probably
the most exciting two months of the
year here in Port St. Joe.
Enjoy them, hear?


( A MAN'S WORLD


Big Man, Little Man

I .BY SHAD PANTRY
V ..... ,


I read somewhere that the
first thought that passes
through a man's mind when
he meets another man is,
"can I kill him or can he kill
me?" There must be some-
thing to it because man has
been fighting man since time
began. And, it doesn't look
like the end is in sight.
There are a lot of men,
small in physical stature,
that have a complex about
their size. There are just as
many big men that are
bullies and try to push their
weight around. Both types
have a problem and, like the
politician, if they continue
campaigning, they will, soon-
er or later, get elected.
There are also some aver-
age-size men that tend to
make spectacles of themsel-
ves from time to time. Let's
face it, men will be boys.
This conflict between men


leads to much bigger things.
It manifests itself in many
ways. Take football, for
instance. Football is a game
where two groups of men (or
boys) try their best to beat
each other to a frazzle. At
times, it seems, they are
trying to kill each other..
Unfortunately, they some-
times do, but it is rare and
always accidental. Never-
theless, it is mortal combat
and the element of death is
there.
The most significant form
of mortal combat today, this
side of actual war, is boxing.
And, although each man is
pitted against the other ac-
cordipg.to physical size, they
are both doing their best to
annihilate the other. They
will hit the knock-out or
killing blow each time if they
can. Several boxers have
been killed, as we all know.


Anyway, back to the little
man and big man. I am well
aware that there are some
little men that are capable of
totally destroying much big-
ger men. We have all heard
stories of the big man picking
on the little man only to learn
that he has met a much more
formidable foe than he had
imagined. It has happened
many times. It has never
happened to me because I
don't pick on nobody. And,
I'm a fairly large man (not
fat, you understand).
I have always tried to
avoid confrontations with all
men, especially little men.
Sound reasoning has told me
that they have had something
up their sleeve, like a switch-
blade knife or a small pistol,
and I certainly don't want
anything to do with either of
those fellows. Fortunately, I
have been successful thus


far. I can do some fast,
effective talking when I'm in
a tight. They don't call me
"ole silver-tongue" for noth-
ing.
I have a friend who is a
little man. He told me that
one night when he was in the
army he had gone out and
had a little too much to drink.
In the process he had run out
of money and was on his way
back to the base to replenish
his funds when a very
unusual thing happened.
When he stopped at the
gate leading into the post, he
found that the M.P. on duty
was about six-foot, five inch-
es tall and weighed about two
hundred-fifty pounds. He
stated his mission and told

Fuqua Announ<

Application Dea
Congressman Don Fuqua
has announced that Novem-
ber 22 is the deadline for
receiving applications to the
United States military aca-
demies.
"I urge all young men and
women who want to apply to
an academy to do so before
that date," Fuqua said.
"Each applicant should be at


the M.P. that he would be
right back. The guard, noting
his condition, told him the
best thing for him to do was
to hit the rack. A bitter
argument ensued and finally
he looked up at the big M.P.
and said, "The bigger they
are, the harder they fall!"
He said that it was at this
point, that, the big ,M.P.
reached down and grabbed
him by the front of his jacket
and picked him completely
off the ground to a point even
with his face and, through
clenched teeth, said, "yeah,
well, let me tell you some-
thing. The littler they are the
farther I knock them!"
He said he slept very well

We Keep Being


"Discovered" by Writers Who Visit with Us


* HERE LATELY Port St. Joe has
received all kinds of publicity in areas
other than our own. Most of it has been
ood and some of it has even been
4ivious of those of us who live here
such as the article I used as the
su-ject for this space last week.
::I'm not taking the easy way out in
rierring to these pieces and using
tnim to fill up this space with no
special effort on my part. They are
jttst welcome words to those of us who
1oVe suffered through disparaging
remarks being printed about our town
and county in the past-words which
weren't welcome at all and in some
instances didn't tell the whole story,
hi'tfh made them sound worse.
SF:The latest article which came to

The Eagle wouldn't stand for that type
of reporting, then, and I suppose their
requirements are still the same.
THE EAGLE picked on one of our


fixture in the area.

take him for granted, but to those who

veteran citizens in an outdoors
column the other day. Written by
Doug Fuller, who apparently had
intimate knowledge of what he was
writing about, had B. L. Pressnell and
his fish camp at Simmons Bayou as
his subject.
Presnell has run tne landing on
the south end of St. Joseph Bay so
long, most of us had almost forgotten
he was down there. He has become a


parked at the launch site on Fifth
Street.
I wonder, as I look at the
gathering of cars with boat trailers on
back: "The speckled trout must be


esley R. Ramsey


the authority on fishing in St. Joseph
Bay. According to the article, if B. L.
says the fish are biting that day, it
isn't just a ploy to get a launch fee or
sell some bait. If he says the fish are
biting, they're biting. If he says, "Stay
in" then you had just as well stay in.
That's the way Doug Fuller, up at
the Dothan Eagle, sees B. L.
During the winter time, I would
periodically see a lot of Alabama cars


biting, but how did those people in
Alabama know?"
evidently they call B. L. Pressnell
and he tells them.
That mystery is solved.
YOU LEARN THINGS in every-
thing you read. For instance, I didn't
know Pressnell was from North
Carolina nor did I know he was retired
from the U. S. Army Corps of


Engineers and helped build a hydro-
gen bomb plant in South Carolina.
You learn all kinds of things when
you read the papers.
I can remember B. L. Pressnell
being here almost as long as I have. I
remember his mother-in-law., Mrs.
Ethel Holliday teaching me Sunday
School when I was just a bare-foot kid
in the First Baptist Church back
before Williams Avenue was even a
street. It was a long time ago.
I just took it for granted B. L.
Pressnell had been here all the time.
Welcome, to the city, B. L.! I hope
you enjoy your stay here. According
to the article in the Dothan Eagle, you
have been here for only 28 years, but I
missed welcoming you when you
arrived.
Better late than never.

I HAVE NEVER used Pressnell's
Fish Camp as the jumping off spot for
a fishing trip. I have purchased live
shrimp from him before, to use for
bait, mostly for fresh water bass.


I haven't used the landing be-
cause I have any ill feelings for B. L.,
you understand. I think we are good
friends. I just have never been salt
water fishing enough to use any
landing. I suppose I could count the
times I have been salt water fishing on
the fingers of one hand.
Action like that won't make B. L.
Pressnell independently wealthy.
Maybe, if I moved to Dothan or
Montgomery, or Marianna, or Bain-
bridge; like those folks up there, I
probably wouldn't be able to stay
away from the salt water and its
fishing. If it wasn't within walking
distance of the house, I would
probably miss it so much I would
drive hundreds of miles to get the
chance to go.
As it is, I get along very well with
the fresh water variety. There's
nothing will beat an Apalachicola
River catfish for taste, so therein lies
my fishing interest.
Sorry, B. L. But I'm glad you offer
such a well-thought-of service to our
friends up in south Georgia and
Alabama. They need the relaxation.

Safety and


high yields

Yours from your credit union
Saving money has never been easy. And in today's
inflated economy, it's even harder. But your credit union
can help.
At your credit union, you can set up a savings plan to fit
any need. And by using payroll deduction, saving can be
painless. Just designate the amount you want deducted
each pay period and it's auto-
matically put in your savings
account. \ Lj. UI U /


And because your credit union ni
pays higher interest than most
banks and savings and loans, these
small payroll deductions fast become
large savings.
Credit union savings are safe, too.
Accounts are insured to the legal maxi-
mum.
For safety and yield on your savings, turn
to your credit union family. It has the right
savings plan for you.

SCounty
(Continued from Page 1)
Commission Tuesday, Doug
Kent, who managed the
program until just recently,
reported the county had
received re-imbursement
from the federal government
of $600 to pay for some of the
storage and distribution
costs.
"That won't touch it",
Kent said in reference to the
check covering county ex-
penses involved in the distri-
bution. Kent said the county
had $800 involved in repairs
and freight alone to transport
the commodities in the per-
iod covered by the re-
imbursement check. Kent
said the county still needed to
finance some sort of refrig-
erated and some dry storage
facilities for the commodi-
ties. Kent said the check
didn't cover administration
costs nor the cost of renting
storage in the past.
"It's a good thing so many
people volunteer their help in
distribution of the commodi-
^ ties", Kent said.
The commodities includes
cheese, butter and some dry
foods such as flour, sugar
and rice.
CODE REQUIREMENTS
Tom Satlings, a Mexico
Beach plumber told the Com-
mission they need to write
down building requirements
which are unique with Gulf
County, but allowed in the
Southern Building Code
which the county has adopt-
ed.
"The trouble is, you re-
quire certain things be done
which go contrary to the
Southern Building Code.
That's no problem, but you
need them written down so
contractors will know there
is a variance", Stallings said.
His one example given was

City of Port St. Joe) allows
the laying of PVC sewer
mains under a cement slab.
"The Southern Building Code
allows this", Stamings said.
The Commission instruct-
ed building inspector, De-
wayne Manuel to put the
exceptions down and the
Commission would consider
them as changes to the
building ordinance.
Manuel said he had been
following the rule exceptions
"Because that's the way we
have always done it."
FILE APPLICATION
The Commission instruct-
ed park planning volunteer
chairman Wayne Childers to
file for a grant to develop
parks in the county on
federal lands the county is
seeking ownership of. Chil-
ders said the county could
possibly receive matching
grants for development of the
properties when the county
gains ownership. "The only
thing is you will have to make
certain funds available for
your share of the match",
Childers said.
Chairman Owens said the
Commission had encumber-
ed up to $50,000 "but it might
not all be available in one
year", he pointed out.
OTHER BUSINESS
In other business matters,
the Commission:
-Heard a report from
Dewayne Manuel that work
was progressing on required
changes to the jail. He also
reported no approval had yet
been received on using two of
the old steel doors on the jail
at the old courthouse in the
facility.
-Edna Rowell advised the
Commission of a drainage
problem at Howard Creek
caused by the installation of
a telephone company ter-
minal facility in the com-
munity. The Board said they
would take a look at the
problem and try to arrive at
a solution.
-Agreed to use matching
funds now available to Civil
Defense, to set up an emer-
gency operations center in
the old courthouse building in
Wewahitchka.
-Agreed to get informa-
tion available on regulations
which would regulate big
boats and the' sizes of wakes
they made on the Apalachi-
cola River and the Intra-
coastal Canal. Commissioner
Doug Birmingham said they
are dangerous to small
boaters.

third place.

flourescent hair to no hair!
That's right, folks. As I
walked into school last
Thursday morning, the first
thing that caught my eye was
a group of scalped Sharks! It
seems that, many fellows
around PSJ High have been
inclined to get Mohawk hair-
cuts (shaves), so if anyone
sees any fellows that look like
they have just escaped from
the nearest Indian tribe, you
can count on them being
devoted Sharks.
Ndtquite as successful as
the half-time ceremony, the
fighting Sharks lost to class
AAA Rickards High School.
The Sharks, nevertheless,
still have the support they
always have and will travel
to Wakulla to play the ranked
number 2 War Eagles this
Friday night. The game will
begin at 8:00 EST, and will be
our. last district game to
determine whether our
Sharks will play in the
regional playoffs, as we have
won our other district games.

FOCUSING AFTER FORTY
: The eyes are living organs
ihich change every day of
our lives.
Shortly after birth, the
eyes' ability to focus (ac-
commodate) is very great
and continues that way until
bout the age of 18. This
focusing ability allows
healthy eyes to adjust
without difficulty from see-
inig distant objects to seeing
rjear objects.
A Around age 18, however,
the lens begins to lose its
flexibility. By the 40s, diffi-
dulties arise in making the
adjustment frmo far to near
seeing tasks. This is a
natural process of aging.
$here is no known treat-
4ient, diet, or exercise to
prevent this. Generally, the
first sign of the change notic-
el is the blurring of near ob-
jects, especially when
rIading or sewing.
:This blurring is usually
correctable with glasses,
Which will take the focusing
strain off your eyes. After a
thorough examination, your
optometrist will prescribe
your first paid of "reading
glasses" or suggest bifocals.

Face Wakulla War Eagles Friday In Conference Game




Sharks Lose to Rickards


The Sharks and the Florida
Gators have something in
common: both teams were
within smelling distance of
the goal line three times over
the week end and failed to
score a touchdown.
The Gators wound up los-
ing their game 10-9. The
Sharks lost by a larger score,
22-0 to the 3-A Rickards
Redskins from Tallahassee.
The word on Rickards is
that they have rushed for
more yards than their oppon-
ent in every game they have
played this year, but when it
came to scoring, they were
blessed with the fumbles.
Friday night's game saw
the Redskins hold onto the
football pretty well and live
up to their rushing reputation
by getting 294 yards from


their three big and fast
running backs. They fumbled
the ball only once and didn't
lose possession then.
The Redskins didn't waste
anytime getting at the busi-
ness they came to accom-
plish. The 'Skins took the
kick-off and put their runners
to work, covering 60 yards in
11 plays and 3"45 to put their
first score on the board. Al
Thurman and Jonathan Mar-
tin, who were to do most of
the running for the night,
made the drive work with
their hard driving spurts.
Tim Matthews, who rounded
out the Rickards running
team, scored for the Red-
skins from the four yard line.
Thurman ran the two point
conversion and Rickards was
on the scoreboard with


enough points to win, 8-0,
On the next possession, the
Sharks were moving with
a 20-yard pass completion to
Josh Jenkins, an eight yard
burst by Sidney Harris and 10
yards by Mike Pittman. The
drive was going smoothly
until Butts completed a short
look-in pass over the middle
to Terry Woullard, but Woul-
lard held the ball just long
enough to be judged in
possession, before it slipped
out of his hands.
One Shark drive foiled.
In the meantime, Rickards
was putting its second TD
under its belt on a one yard
plunge by Thurman after
Matthews had reeled off a
45-yard gainer. Tony Wyatt
kicked the extra point and
the Tallahassee visitors were
ahead, 15-0.
Again, late in the second
period, the Sharks came
alive only to have their
efforts snuffed before they
could'bear fruit.
Josh Jenkins brought the
crowd to its feet in a 42 yard
return of a Rickards' punt.
After working to the Rick-
ards 20,, Butts was sacked
twice in succession trying to
get a pass off. Then, on fourth
down, from the 30 yard line,
Jenkins whipped around the
right side and went into the
end zone. But a Shark threw
an illegal block and the score
was called back.
Rickards scored for the
.last time in the third period
with Thurman working his
way through the line from
four yards out. Wyatt's kick
was good and the Redskins
had themselves a 22-0 win
,over the Sharks.
The Sharks had their third
attempt at a score in the last
period, when Butts hit Pitt-


man with a 20 yard pass at
the Rickards' 15. Pittman
made it to the nine before he
was stopped. On the next
play,. Butts' pitch-out sailed
and went over the head of
Mike Pittman with the Red-
skins recovering.
FRIDAY NIGHT
Friday night, it's the game
everyone has been talking
about ever since the season
started-the shoot-out with
Wakulla.
The Sharks will go to War
Eagle territory to try for the
division crown. The Sharks
and the War Eagles both are
undefeated in division play
and the team has been
looking forward to this game.
Some have said they were
looking so hard for- this
game, DeFuniak and Rick-
ards were able to slip up on
them.
Friday night will tell the
tale.

Antlerless Deer Day Is Set for


Nov. 26 by Game Commission


After the turkey has been
picked to the bone on Thanks-
giving weekend, many hunt-
ers head for the woods
looking for a different flavor:
venison. This year one's
chances of bringing home
some venison over the long
weekend will be greatly
improved for one day.
On Saturday, November
26, hunters will be permitted
to take antlerless deer, as
well as deer with one or more
one-inch antlers, on private
land throughout the state.
The regular deer season
begins November 24 in the
Northwest Region and No-
vember 12 in the rest of the
state.
According to an official
with the Game and Fresh
Water Fish Commission, the
"either sex" deer day was
moved to November from
January, when it was held
last season, to encourage
greater-hunter participation.
"Thanksgiving weekend is
traditionally a time when
families and friends get
together and go hunting,"
said Dr. Allan Egbert, assist-
ant director of the Commis-
sion's Division of Wildlife.
"So, this is an ideal time to
hold the antlerless deer
hunt."
, The hunt will be allowed on
private land only, throughout
the state except for the area


of the Everglads south of
Tamiami Trail (U.S.41) lying
east of the Everglads Nation-
al Park. The hunt will not be
allowed on any of the state's
wildlife management areas.
The daily bag limit for the
deer is two, not more than
one of which may be an
antlerless buck or doe. It will
not be legal to take spotted
fawns.
"The statewide private
land antlerless deer day is
also planned for people who
don't have access to antler-
less deer permits either
because they have small
landholdings or cannot, for

Howard Creek
Offers Thanks

The Howard's Creek Wo-
man's Club Halloween Carni-
val had a great turn-out.

thank all the people who
donated money and worked

some reason, hunt where
such permits are available,"
Egbert said.
"The Commission already
has an antlerless deer pro-
gram by permit only that
deals with landowners who
own or lease in excess of 150
acres," Egbert said. He
explained that the special
one-day hunt on November 26
will be allowed on any


private landholdings without
requiring a permit.
"I can't emphasize too
much how important it is that
the hunters obtain permis-
sion from landowners before
going hunting," Egbert said.
"As always, hunters should
respect other people's pro-
perty and show consideration
when on someone else's
land."


Liberty Co. Defeats

Wewahitchka 21-0


The Wewahitchka Gators
fell victim to the Liberty
County Bulldogs at Bristol
last Friday night, losing 21-0
in a district game.
The Gators were held to
only three first downs and 76
yards of offense while the
Bulldogs were piling up 324
yards in passing and run-
ning.
The Gators had two bright
spots in their game; they
picked up 58 yards in returns
and had only five yards in
penalties.
Liberty's first score came
in the first period when
Hosford scored on a 23 yard
gallop. Leading yard gainer,
Jim Shuler put the other two
markers on the scoreboard,
scoring in the third and
fourth periods on eight and
one yard runs. Shuler kicked
all three extra points.
The Gators have yet to win
this season in eight outings.
Friday night, the Gators
wind down their home season
against Cottondale.
