Incinerator Use



Idea Dying Because of Projected


High Cost of Fuel for Operation


E. F. Gunn tossed cold water on
the fire of enthusiasm for possible use
of an idle incinerator here in Port St.
Joe to burn garbage and trash
, collected in south Gulf county, Tues-
day night.
Gunn, who has been retained by
the city and county to look into the
several possibilities for. handling
garbage and trash in order to meet
Department of Environmental Regu-
lation orders, had sent Gunn to
Orlando to inspect a garbage incinera-
tion operation at Disney World, using
two incinerators similar to the idle
piece of machinery at the city's
Wastewater Treatment Plant. The
city purchased the incinerator about
10 years ago for approximately


$300,000, on advice from design
engineers, and it has been sitting idly
in the plant compound for most of the
time since it was erected.
It would seem the same reason for
shutting the incinerator down in the
first place is going to keep from being
used in this instance, also-the cost of
operation.
Gunn said he looked at Disney
world's incinerators as well as three
compacting operations to get ideas
about what would best serve' Gulf's
needs.
The City and County Commis.
missions will meet this morning
at 9:00 a.m., in a workshop session
to hear a full report from Gunn
and get some feel of what direc-


tion they should take now.
Gunn gave the City Commission a
written report of his findings on the
trip Tuesday night so they could study
it thoroughly prior to the meeting this
morning.
Gunn's report said, the incinera-
tor would do the job fine after a few
modifications to receive the garbage
and trash, but that the cost would be.
some $20.00 to $30.00 per ton of trash
and garbage for operation. "This
makes it too expensive to operate",
his report said.
The report indicated Gunn had
found it would be necessary to
maintain a temperature of 1400 to 2000
degrees to burn all solid waste. The

Cabinet Balks On Approving.

State Purchase of MK Land


A decision to purchase a portion of M.K.
Ranches in Gulf County along the Apalachi-
cola River, ran into some resistance from
the State Cabinet last week.
The Department of Natural Resources
had asked Governor Graham and the
Cabinet to enter into an option contract with
M.K.'s owners for the purchase of some
8,878 acres of land they have determined as
environmentally sensitive.
The state would pay $100 to hold an option
until next April 30 to buy the land.
The land purchase will be considered by
Governor Graham and the Cabinet in a
.meeting today_. ... .. ....... . .-- .
State Lands Director James MacFarland


told Cabinet aides it would cost $2.97 million
to buy the property. The land purchase
already has won -approval from the
Conservation and Recreation Lands com-
mittee and is ranked 16th on a 28-item
priority list.
M.K. owners have agreed to give the state
some 3,000 acres of land along with the
acreage to be purchased in the deal. M.K. is
willing to sell the land, if the state wants to
buy. The state has stopped M.K. from using
some of their drainage practices which
makes the land useable as farm land.
The J. T. Murff family of Memphis,
Tennessee, owners of the Ranch, have
agreed to seli- er, a maximum-price ef-$5"a
per acre.

A technician is shown running cable for the Gulf County Jail. The renovation work is

Jail Renovation Begins.

Gulf County is spending
some $10,000 in order to
satisfy the state's Depart-
ment of Corrections' require-
ments to mdet minimum
safety standards for the jail.
The county has sparred
and jabbed with DOC for
more than a year now,
resisting attempts to require
major expenditures in the
15-year-old facility which has
drawn fire from DOC for not
meeting state standards for
jails... .

and the State Fire Marshall. Corrections. Above is the control panel for the system.


Several black residents of
Port St. Joe, with Paul Gant
as their spokesman asked,
"What, can we do to help
improve the response of our,
Fire Department?"
The citizens were asking
the questions as a result of
two houses which burned
within the past month in the
northern section of Port St.
Joe. At least one of the
houses burned after it was
p out in an earlier fire by
the Fire Department.
The main complaint aired
by Gant seemed to be diffi-
culty in getting a call in to the
Fire Department and getting
response. Gant asked the
question, "Why do the Police
have to check out a call for
the Fire Department before
they are sent?"
Fire Department Chief
Bascom Hamm, who was
present at the meeting and
Police Chief Roy Robinson,
said this was not the practice
of the departments.
Robinson said the police-
man on duty went to the fire
scene when the call was
made and usually beat the
Fire Department there by
several minutes, but he was
there for no purpose except
giving help where he could.
Hamm said the Depart-
ment followed the practice
Gant described several years
ago "when we were getting a
half dozen false alarm calls a
day" but said this is no
longer the case.
Gant also questioned the
delay in getting to a fire when
it was called in. He pointed
out that when the McKelvey
home burned, it caught up a
second time after the Depart-
ment left and the fire siren
didn't even blow and "only
one fireman showed up".
Hamm explained the fire
phone system and said the
siren was not operating at
that particular time but the
telephone alarm system was
operating and the alarm had
been received and acted on.
"We had five firemen there",
he said.
A second fire, a little over a


week ago, also disturbed
Gant because he said it
caught up twice during the
night after it had been put


out. The second time it
caught up it damaged the
home next door as well.
Hamm pointed out the

Gulf's Veterans Honored


Braving the first of the area's winter
cold last Friday, the John C. Gainous Post
10069, Veterans of Foreign Wars held a
ceremony which reminded the community
of the price many had paid in past wars.
Marking the national holiday of Veterans
Day, the VFW marked the occasion with a
parade and a short memorial service in
front of the City Hall, commemorating all
the Gulf County men who have fallen in
defense of liberty throughout the world. "
Using a 21 gun salute by a Tyndall rifle
team and a bugler blowing "Taps", the
ceremony was closed out with a tribute to
the fallen veterans.
The ceremony was opened with prayer
by Rev. Howard Browning, pastor of the
First Baptist Church and the singing of
"This Is My Country", by Mrs. Carl O'Barr.
Featured speaker for the ceremony was


Col. Fantastik of Tyndall Air Force Base.
The Colonel recalled the beginning and
the meaning of Veterans Day from its
inception as Armistice Day, commemorat-
ing the end of the "war to end all wars" and
recalled the answer to the country's call to
arms several times since.
He asked the question, "Will it ever
end?" The speaker felt hostilities would
always be with us and advocated a strong
position, militarily, for this country "in
order that we may be able to meet any
aggression which may threaten our nation".
Following the address, Mrs. Winston
Prather, sister of John C. Gainous, first Gulf
County man to be killed in Vietnam, had a
wreath presented to lay on a monument in
front of City Hall in honor of all county
soldiers who have paid the price of their
lives in fighting for freedom.


Hamm said the second alarm
was phoned in at 5:06 and
was answered immediately.
Gant had his most pointed
questions about this incident.
He said a citizen of the area
had called in the alarm
nearly an hour before the
Fire Department came. Gant
couldn't be sure what num-

Taking


Blood


Today

Red Cross and their mobile
blood collection unit will be
at Gulf Pines Hospital today
taking blood from donors for
the Red Cross blood bank.
The local hospital and most
area hospitals use the blood
bank as their primary source
of whole blood to be given
patients.
Residents of Gulf County
can receive free blood in any
hospital which has an ar-
rangement with Red Cross,
having to pay only the
handling charge.
The blood collection unit
will be at the local hospital
from 1:30 to 6:00 today.
According to Rand Wortman,
hospital administrator, Red
Cross has a goal of 70 units
for the drive today. The
collection unit was last here
in August and collected 51
units.
Red Cross uses its own
technicians to draw the blood
and the hospital furnishes
volunteer medical help at the
donor site.
Refreshments will be fur-
nished for all donors.
Wortman urges a good
turn-out for the blood collect-
tion program. "Even if there
is a possibility they won't
take your blood, come and let
their experts make the deci-
sion of whether you can give
or not."

Let the Voters



Decide


We don't know but what maybe
Calhoun County has come up with
the only equitable solution about
what to do with the Dead Lakes
Sdam.
That Commission has asked
the Gulf County Commission to
place the question of whether or not
it should be removed, on the
general election ballot in Novem-
ber of next year and allow the
people to make the decision as to
whether it should go or stay.
The question has grown into a
volatile question with both sides
almost to the stage of coming to
blows about a matter which should
'- be seriously considered in the
future of the county, not some-
body's personal desires about the
future of the dam. It's true that if
we had some property dn the shore
. of the Dead Lakes and we were to
spend every week end or every day
on that property, gazing with
Rapture at the water and that lovely
wildness, we might feel differently,
a little selfishly toward the dam
and its future.
We are not arch conservation-
ists, in that we should just shut
such natural resources off from the
use of mankind and allow it to be
just looked at or maybe get a
controlled glimpse every now and
then of the way things used to be.
We take the command of Genesis

literally, where God charged man
with using the Earth and resources
and using them wisely.
If the use of the Dead Lakes
would be enhanced by the dam's
removal, it should be removed. If it
would better serve the needs of the
people with the dam still in place,
then leave it in place.
It hardly seems feasible to us
that an unbiased decision can be
made by either philosophy current-
ly using the dam in a tug-of-war
over its future and, ultimately, the
Dead Lakes.
If the people vote on it, at least
the majority of our citizens will
have a small voice in the future of
the lakes. If their choice enhances
the lakes, all well and good. If the
decision is to the detriment of the
lakes, it was by their own choice.
We don't pretend to know what
is best for the lakes. We have
listened to the arguments and
reasoning from both sides and
know which seems more plausible
to us. We believe we could cast at
least an informed ballot on the
question. Even after listening to
both sets of facts and arguments,
we see neither side as being totally
convincing with their logic alone.
We favor the vote of the people,
as we favor in all things which
affect our future so drastically.

It is becoming increasingly
harder for men to attain
success. Admittedly, success
means different things to
different men. The end re-
sults, however, are the same,
regardless of what definition
is used.
This is a serious problem
that is growing more com-
plex with each passing day.
It is causing a multitude of
personnel problems with cor-
porate life. It seems that
people have lost their sense
of identity and no longer have
the aspirations and goals that
were prevalent some years
ago.
One reason for this is the
accelerated rate with which
new innovations are being
introduced in our society.
One of my uncles (now
deceased) thought he was
watching a space movie
when he was actually watch-'
ing the first live pictures of
the first trip to the moon. He
died convinced that the T.V.
shots of the men walking on


the moon were nothing but a
fabricated show made in
some studio in New York.
"They can't fool me," was
\ his final summation.
Another reason it is diffi-
cult to become successful
today is that there are so
many other things to devour
a man's time. Today, most
wives work. Although there
are many more modern
conveniences today, they still
require someone to turn
them on and off, and load and

county's garbage in about two hours
operation per day, but it would not be
feasible to shut the machinery down
just because there was nothing to
burn. The nature of the machine
doesn't allow it to be operated in this
manner.
In his report to the Commission,
Gunn made some definite suggestions
about which method of garbage


handling Gulf should use. He suggests
an operation where garbage is
dumped directly in a concrete hopper
and falls in a compaction unit, to save
cost of manpower to operate the
station and make it more feasible for
this area.

A SURVEY PRINTED in the
"papers not too long ago gave a
revealing glimpse into the sophistica-
tion of teen agers today-a glimpse
which might surprise a lot of adults,
:who thought teen-agers were a group
-of younger citizens just waiting for the
opportunity to send the morals of this
-age back to the dark ages and forget
-them.
- True, some are not exactly on the
straight and narrow with accepted
.morality, even in this permissive
-World; but the majority of the
""permissiveness" which exists seems
:to be centered mainly in the activities
-of so-called mature adults rather than
being centered in the ranks of the
"easily led" adolescents and teen-
-agers.
� A close examination of the survey
-shows that the kids pretty much have
:a handle on what is right and what is
wrong and tend to lean toward what is
right in their activities.
FOR INSTANCE, when adults
:,consider the social problem of doing

:equate the problem with kids. It's the

stances. We adults consider the kids
as the prime market for this distaste-
ful and dangerous activity.
According to the survey, however,
only 10 percent of the kids who took
the survey (with anonymous answers)
were found to have even tried the
hallucinogenic drugs, amphetamines
or barbituates, better known to some
of as "hard drugs".
Only 10 percent!
The way some news stories read


weed, marijuana. According to the
survey, only 12 percent of the kids
have ever tried marijuana and most
said they no longer used it.
If one was to believe what is
publicised these days, every other kid
in the world has his stash or his
private source of marijuana.
Again, many of the television
programs would have us believe the
majority lies in the other camp.
Could it be our kids are being


maybe television programs would
better serve society if they played
down the use of the drugs, rather than
picture their use as so wide-spread.
There's more than a distinct
possibility kids pick up on the drug
because they see it as the thing to do
on television.
We worry about our kids being fed
a diet of violence on the tube, but a
worry which seems to be just as real is
the message on drug abuse which is


pounded into kids over the airways.

WHILE THE USE of alcohol
seems to be as common as the use of
drinking water, it isn't so among our
teen-agers, the survey shows.
Of the teen-agers questioned in
the survey, about a third said they
occasionally try a drink of liquor or
beer. Another third said they had
never tasted liquor in any form.
While I would like to see that last
percentage higher, I would think the
fact that only a third of our teen-agers
take a drink or a beer occasionally,
speaks pretty well for our teen-agers,
who are naturally experimental any-
how.
Again, I believe television is the
prime villian. When was the last time
you saw a television show in which
nobody took a drink of liquor? When
was the last time you viewed
television for an evening in which
there was not a single show in which
the characters didn't drink anything
except liquor?


AND, OF COURSE there's the
biggie-sex!
Nobody is knocking sex. In its
correct place, sex is a relationship to
be cherished by two loving adults.
Three-fourths of the kids who took
the survey indicated they are waiting
for that special relationship in which
to step into their sexual relationship.
Three-fourths of the surveyed teens
said they have never engaged in sex.
Again, if we believe what we see
and read in our so-called entertain-
ment media, the only thing which
occupies the teen-age mind, other
than drugs and liquor, is "who's
next" in the line of sexual conquests.
Maybe we've been mis-judging
our teens. We understand they are not
all angels. The results of this survey
may be a point or two off in its
percentages. If I had to guess, our
teens are no worse-and maybe just a
little better, morally-than most of us
were when were that age.
Maybe that's what bothers us:
we're afraid they're a chip off the old
block.

Local Gymnasts Do Well

In Sectional Competition


On Saturday, October 15
six gymnasts traveled to
Pensacola to compete in
Class IV USGF compulsories
with the Florida Flippers
from Pensacola Jr. College.
Anita Davis, seven years
old and the youngest member
of the team, captured 1st
All-Around, in the eight and
under age group. She placed
1st in Vaulting, 1st in Balance
Beam, 1st in Free Exercise,
and 1st in Uneven Bars. Even
though her scores are high
enough, talented Anita must
wait two more years before
she meets the nine year old
age requirement to compete
in the sanctioned USGF
qualifying meets. Her next
meet is in April in Jackson-


ville, where competition is
for gymnasts only eight
years or younger.
In the 9-10 age group, Pam
Bowen placed 5th in Bars, 6th
in Vaulting, 4th in Floor, 4th
in Beam. Marla Perry placed
4th in Bars, 5th in Vaulting,
2nd in Floor, 3rd in Beam.
Lisa Atkins placed 6th in
Bars, 4th in Vaulting, 5th in
Floor, 5th in Beam.
In the 11-13 age group,
Holly Lyons placed 2nd in
Bars, 3rd in Vaulting, 3rd in
Floor, 1st in Beam, and 2nd
All-Around. Marci Barbee
placed 1st in Bars, 1st in
Vaulting, 2nd in Floor, 2nd in
Beam, and captured 1st
All-Around.
On Saturday, October 22,


the gymnasts traveled to
Valparaiso to compete in the
second North Florida United
States Gymnastics Con-
federation state and section-
al qualifying meet. In the 9-11
age group, high scorers were
Perry with a 7.15 in Floor,
Lyons with a 7.6 in Bars, 7.05
in Floor, and 7.85 in Beam,
missing the sectional qualify-
ing score by only .8 of a point.
Barbee in the 12-13 age group
did well also, scoring 7.5 in
Vaulting, 7.2 in Floor. She
captured 5th place in Bars
with a high score of 8.6.
However, her All-Around
score was not high enough to
meet the state requirements,
but was high enough to meet
the sectional -requirement.
Sectionals held in Valparaiso
November 19th are another
chance for a gymnast to
qualify for State Competi-
tion.
Fall registration is still
being held at the Centennial
Building on Tuesdays from
5:30 to 9:00, and is open for
girls ages 5:30 to 9:00, and is
open for girls ages 4-15. The
gymnasts are coached by
Jennifer Hendrix, Trish Tap-
per, and Christy Davis.

side of the Tabernacle and
fifteen branched lighted ta-
pers in the sanctuary inter-
spersed with ivy and also on
each step leading to the altar
at the sides. Palms flanked
the sides of the altar also.
The family pews were
designated with large bows
of white trimmed with dusty
rose mums. Window recesses
of the church held lighted
white tapers flanked with
sprays of ivy, pine, and
magnolia clustered into a
deep green foliage.
Pre-nuptial music included
organ numbers by Mrs.

radiant in an exquisite floor
length gown of pure silk
organza over tissue taffeta.
The bodice, featuring a high
pleated neckline, was over-
laid with alencon lace to the
waist, which formed a V-
neckline, and interspersed
with seed pearls. The natural
waistline fell into a bell skirt
of organza with a circular
band of alencon lace out-
lining the hem. The segments
of lace from the hack bodice
which was fastened by small
self-covered buttons were
met by the skirt which flowed
into a sheer organza train
outlined with matching lace.
The sheer lace organza sle-
eves were gathered at the
wrist with a cuff of crystal
pleats matching the neckline.
Her veil of illusion was
caught to a cloche headpiece
of matching lace with seed
pearls.
The bride carried a formal
cascade of white carnations,
dusty rose lilies, and minia-
ture white bride's roses, with
fern, and dusty rose stream-
ers.

Sissy Worley of Port St. Joe.
Bridesmaids were Mrs. Jeff
Hinote, Miss Connie Raffield,
Mrs. Melody Nelson and Mrs.

WHAT IS DIABETES?

Normally, the sugars and starches in food are
converted to a form of sugar called glucose. With the
aid of insulin, a natural hormone manufactured in the p
pancreas, the blood stream distributes this glucose to
the body cells where it is converted into ready energy
or stored for future use.
�w You may have diabetes when the pancreas fails to
a produce enough effective insulin. The glucose then a
accumulates in the blood, and sometimes spills over
into the urine. The symptoms, when there are some,
may be frequent urination, abnormal thirst, hunger *
and loss of weight, weakness, itching, blurring of
vision and possibly skin infections. Have you had a
r o diabetes test recently? If not, let your physician check
you.

privilege and a duty. May we be your personal

Another Game


Cottondale ground out 417

;over the Wewahitchka Ga-

ninth loss of the season.
The Gators scored once, in
the first period, on the
Hornets, but the momentum
definitely belonged to Cotton-

The Sharks held the War
Eagles scoreless for the third
period, but they put two more
touchdowns en the score-
board in the final stanza.
The first TD came with
only 44 seconds gone in the
period, when Sandy Griffin
took a screen pass from his
quarterback way back on the
Shark four, yard line. Griffin
then scooted up the side-line
and out-ran Mike Pittman to
the end zone for the score.
Gerald Donaldson almost
matched Griffin's feat, ex-
cept he started his 94 yard
scoring play, running from
scrimmage, through the
Shark defense with only
seconds left in the game to
make the final score, 41-7.
The War Eagles ended the
game with a 41-7 win over the
Sharks. The win definitely

and the score was called
back.
While the Sharks control-
led the ball for the first seven
and a half minutes of the
game, from there on it was
all War Eagles and their
plays nobody else would even
think of making.
After the Sharks had scor-
ed, the War Eagles roared
right back, scoring on their
third play from scrimmage,
on a razzle-dazzle half back
pass play to Thomas Frank-
lin which covered 66 yards: a
desperation situation play.
Zimmerman kicked his first
of four extra points for the
score to stand at 7-7.
The score didn't stand
there long. On the first play
of the second period, Gerald
Donaldson rambled for 20
yards to the three yard line
and Clay Nelson scored on
the very next play for one of
the two legitimate Wakulla
scoring drives of the evening.
The entire crowd was
taken by surprise on the next
War Eagle score, which
came with eight minutes left
on the clock.
The Sharks had dug in and
held the Eagles on the Port
St. Joe 13 yard line. The
Eagles lined up to attempt a
field goal, but the ball sailed
over the head of the ball
holder and wound up around
the Shark 40 yard line.
Zimmerman, the kicker,
picked up the ball and threw
a high arching pass to the end
zone. Mike Cronan was
standing in a crowd of four
War Eagles and caught the
ball for the score.
Things weren't out of hand
until late in the first half,
when the Eagles used an-
other of two legitimate scor-
ing plays to put the game out
of reach.
The Sharks were moving at
the Wakulla 42, when Chris
Butts tossed a pass which
was deflected and caught
before it hit the ground by
young Mr. Zimmerman, who
seemed to be about half the
War Eagles' team. Four
plays later, Gerald Donald-
son-took a 23 yard pass from
quarterback Todd Lanter to

Time for Planting Shrubs and Trees Will be Soon


BY ROY LEE CARTER
County Extension Director
With winter fast approach-
ing, it soon will be time for
major tree and shrub plant-
ing and transplanting. There
are several advantages in
planting during November
and the winter instead of
waiting until spring. The
plants are not actively grow-
ing during this time and least
apt to be injured by shock


from planting. Too, the wea-
ther and moisture during the
winter season is very condu-
cive to good plant ~djustment
- as well as good .working
weather for the gardener. My
information for this article
was provided by Extension
Horticulturist, Dr. Robert
Black.
Winter planting of trees
and shrubs allows the plants
to become well established

C Trees are always a must in

prior to spring growth and windbreaks, food, setting or

Thomas In

Bold Eagle

Army Sgt. Danny L.
Thomas, son of Claude
Thomas of Port St. Joe, has
participated in Bold Eagle
84, a joint service readiness
exercise held at Eglin Air
Force Base.
The exercise involved
more than 19,000 service
members from all elements
of the Department of Defense
assisting in repelling from a
friendly nation an invading
force, thus testing the com-
bat readiness of U.S.-based
forces.
Thomas is a portable air
defense system crewman
with the 197th Infantry Bri-
gade at Fort. Benning, Ga.
He is a 1975 graduate of
Port St. Joe High School.


he was actively pursuing the
birds, says he has retired
from the sport now, but still
remembers many good stor-
ies and has a host of fond
memories about the activity
he describes as the most
'technical of hunting pursuits.
"If you hunt turkeys, you
won't hunt anything else. It's
like an alcoholic needing
another drink. A turkey
hunter is always looking for
another sign."
Core told the clubs a couple
of stories which described
just how smart a turkey is
and how far he roams. He
said, in order to have success
hunting 'the birds, you must
know all there is to know
about them, where they
roost, what they feed on at
any given time, their 20 or so
noises they make, and recog-
nize a bird when you see one.
"Many people can be looking
right at a wild turkey and
never see him", Core said.
The story teller also said
that back when he was
hunting, you had to also be on
the alert for what man had
supposedly "hidden" in the
.swamps. "There was an
ever-present danger of walk-'
ing up on something you
weren't supposed to see", he
said. Core then told a couple
of stories to illustrate what
he was talking about.
Core admitted the hunting
season activities have chan-
ged since he last pursued the
sport. "A few years ago, the
hunting and fishing season
openings took on the appear-
ance of almost a holiday.
They were times to be looked
forward to", he remriember-
ed.


Know the tree you select
and its growth requirements.
Know the tree's ultimate size
and plant accordingly. Does
-the tree require special soil
(dogwood and redbud re-
quire acid. soil)? Does the
tree have serious insects and
diseases and will require
routine maintenance?
Be sure the tree is tolerant
of your local weather condi-
tions. Will it tolerate Flori-
da's summer heat, or is it too
tender for Northern and
Central Florida's winters?
Do you want an evergreen
or deciduous tree? Deciduous
shade trees are recommend-
ed as they allow the desirable
sun when void of leaves in the
winter, whereas an ever-
green tree may be desirable
for screening;
Consider overhead lines,
underground water-lines,
septic tanks, etc. as well as
walks, drives and paved
surfaces which may be dam-
aged by tree roots;
Know the tolerance of the
tree to salt spray. The
southern magnolia cojeput-
tree and the live oak are a
few among the group of trees
tolerant of salt spray;
Lastly, obtain a quality
tree from a reliable nursery-
man, and plant it in a
carefully prepared spot, fol-
lowing good horticultural
practices as to proper soil,
location, exposure, watering


and spraying so that your lost through carelessness and
investment in the tree is not lack of planting.

Duck Shooters

Will See More

Steel Shot Areas


When the 1983-84 duck
hunting season gets under-
way on November 23, more
hunters than ever will be
required to adjust their
method of shooting. There
are more regions of the state
this fall where the use of
nontoxic shot will be required
when hunting ducks.
But the conversion
shouldn't be too traumatic, if


the shooter puts in some
practice time before opening
day to learn the dynamics of
shooting steel shot. That's
according to Capt. Ed Tyer of
the Game and Fresh Water
Fish Commission.
Tyer heads up the agency's
Hunter Education program
and, as part of the 14-hour
course, volunteer instructors
cover the difference between
shooting-lead -shot arid steel
shot.
"A person who is shooting
steel for the first time will
have to make adjustments in
the traditional methods of
shooting," Tyer explained.
"Steel shot is not only
rounder than lead shot but
also as much as three times
harder than lead".
For example, Tyer said the
first thing newcomers to
steel shot should realize is
that they should use a pellet
at least two sizes larger in
steel to get the same job dope
that lead would. That means
probably a No. 2 steel for
over decoys and No. 1 for
pass shooting.
"Steel possesses a velocity
level that averages about 100
feet per second faster than
lead," he continued. "What
that means is that 'steel
pellets two sizes larger than
lead get to the targets
quicker, especially at dis-
tances less than 30 yards."
In turn, this difference also

means an adjustment in lead
distance. Between 30 and 50
yards, he said, no real
adjustment is needed. But at
pass shooting distances over
50 yards, steel pellets slow
down faster than lead ana
thus take longer to get to the
target. Shooters must in-
crease their leads when they
are using steel at distances
beyond 50 yards.
In addition, Tyer suggested
that a waterfowler go to an
improved cylinder choke
when he begins using steel
shot. This adaption will make
a tremendous difference in
the shooter's ability to adjust
to using steel.
"But the single most im-
portant recommendation I
would have for those people
who will be using steel shot
this fall is to take your
shotgun and steel shot loads
to a practice range and spend
some, time learning the feel


of using this nontoxic shot,"
Tyer said. "These practice
rounds will let you learn
more about how to effective-
ly use steel shot."
Areas in Florida where
steel shot is required in all
gauges when hurting ducks
are: Brevard County east of
Interstate 95; Broward, Os-
ceola, and Dade counties;
Leon County (exclusive of
Lake Talquin and the Och-
lockonee River): Lake Mic-
cosukee in Leon and Jeffer-
son counties:
Lake Okeechobee (the area
lying lakeward of and bound-
ed by the Lake Okeechobee
levee, by the SR 78 Kissim-
mee River bridge and by SR
78 from its intersections with
the Lake Okeechobee levee
at points near Lakeport and
the Old Sportsman's Village
site): M-K Ranch public
waterfowl hunting area in
Gulf County.

Rock

- From the Twin City News
"Like drilling teeth,"
someone commented when
directors of the Tri-Rivers
Waterway Development As-
sociation visited the dredge-
boat that is grinding rock
hazards out of the Apalachi-
cola River below Sneads,
Florida.
The dredgeboat operator
raised the cutterhead out of
the water for the visitors to
see. The 3-ton probe plated
with high-carbon steel blades
looked more like a weapon of
war. Alton Colvin, area engi-
neer with the U. S. Corps of
Engineers, explained that it
does work something like a
dentist's drill, though, goug-
ing out the limestone protru-
sions in small chunks.
None of the chunks could
be seen. They had been
sucked away and replaced
outside the navigation chan-
nel to create fish habitat.
Altogether, the contractor
will relocate 125,000 cubic
yards of rock from four spots
just below Jim Woodruff
dam. That's not a lot com-
pared to the 600,000 cubic
yards of sand routinely dred-
ged from the channel annual-
ly. But it has been enough to
knock holes in barges, sink
towboats and generally
wreak havoc with commer-
cial shipping.
The job will cost thel
Federal , government
$1,974,000. The contractor,
the Hendry Corporation of
Tampa, has 150 days to
finish.
The Dothan-based Tri-
Rivers Association, a citi-
zens' group, is counting on
the rock relocation to provide
at least a dependable naviga-
tion channel in the Apalachi-
cola - Chattachoochee - Flint
waterway. Congress au-
thorized a 9 by 100-foot

THE SILENT


CASH REGISTER


It's ringing up your kilowatthours.


Maybe you've never
thought about it this way. but
every time you turn on a light
or take a hot shower or do the
laundry. you're shopping with
Florida Power. Buying
electricity. And while you may
not give these purchases a
second thought. the meter
outside your house is ringing
up those kilowatthours like a
silent cash register.
It's like any other credit
purchase. If you wait until the
bill comes at the end of the
month to tell you how much
you've spent, the total can
come as quite a shock to your
budget. That's why it makes
sense to keep track as you go
along.
Meter reading puts you
right on the money.
When you record your


meter readings at the same
time every week. you can
budget for your monthly
electric bill the same way you
budget for other expenses. It
will also help you determine
how your energy conservation
efforts are working and which
ones are really paying off for
you.
It's quick and easy.



3. 5 6 4 5
The dials on your electric
meter are like little clocks. They
alternately run clockwise and
counterclockwise. Reading
from right to left. write down
the last number the needle has
passed. The difference
between the new reading and


your last one totals your
weekly consumption. It's really
that simple.
Pick up your free meter
reading guides.
To help you keep your
records straight. Florida Power
will give you a supply of
specially designed meter
reading guides absolutely free.
So pick up yours today and
catch up on your reading.
After all. since you probably
buy electricity more often than
anything else, it pays to keep
checking out the cash register
