Making Sure of Future Supply


Christmas Parade Draws Crowd


Estimates are that the largest crowd ever, showed up to
greet Santa Claus as he made his annual first visit to Port
St. Joe last Saturday in a giant parade of some 45 units up
Reid Avenue.
Several beautiful flots were entered in the parade, with
the non-commercial entries competing for cash prizes
given by the Merchants Association, which underwrites the
parade expenses each year. The parade organization is
handled by the Kiwanis Club as one of their community
projects.
In the float competition, St. James Episcopal Church
won first place and a first prize of $100.00. Their float


depicted the theme of "He Has the Whole World In His
Hands". Second place winner was Zion Fair Baptist
Church, which received a cash prize of $75. Third place
winner was the Concerned Citizens organization.
In the photo above, parade chairman, Al Ray, far right,
hands the checks for the prize money to Amy Ford, Tina
Webber and Lisa Sowell for the first place float. At left is

place winnings and in the rear are Johnny Best and
Cleveland Bailey, representing the third place winner.

An up-coming conference
with the Northwest Florida
Water Management District
will advise the City of Port
St. Joe of the advisability of
its entering into an agree-
ment with Gulf County to
furnish bulk treated water
to the new Beaches water
system.
The Commission will be
meeting with Doug Barr,
director of the District's
water resources division, and
will discuss the ramifications
of entering into the agree-
ment with the county.
Primarily what the Com-
mission wants to know is
what kind of supply problems
it will be facing when the
supply of water must be
increased in the future. Can
it safely draw more from its
present wells, can new wells
be permitted and dug and if
so, how far from the treat-
ment plant will they have to
be placed.
The Commission sees a


time, in the near future,
when water supplies must be
increased and expansion at
the treatment plant if water
use grows much above what
it is now.
The treatment plant was
doubled in size and capacity
nearly three years ago, but
continued growth at the
Beaches would rapidly use
up this present capacity.
The Commission will meet
with Barr on Tuesday of next
week at 10 a.m.
COMPLAINT FILED
Controversy seems to fol-
low Marion Daniels like
thunder follows lightning.
Tuesday night, after being
back in Port St. Joe for only a
short while, he appeared
before the City Commission
and hurled charges of har-
rassment at City Policeman,
James McGee, asking the
Commission to instruct Mc-
Gee to "leave me alone".
Daniels said McGee stop-
ped him in front of City Hall


recently "with no probable
cause" and gave him a ticket
for driving without a license.
"He didn't know I had a
license and I wasn't breaking
any traffic laws, so why did
he stop me?"
McGee said he knew Dan-
iels hadn't possessed a li-
cense in the past and called


for a computer check with
the Motor Vehicle Depart-
ment in Tallahassee as a
matter of routine. "The
report said he didn't havela
license, so I arrested himn or

Company Making Plans to Develop Holdings

Four County Area Along Coast Due for Development Over Next Several Years


Port St. Joe will be included in plans of
St. Joe Paper Company to start developing
its holdings over the next few years. St.
Joe will begin "reasonably soon" to
develop waterfront and industrial sites in
Bay, Franklin and Walton counties,
according to a story in the Tallahassee
Democrat, Sunday, quoting an interview
with Jake C. Belin, chief executive of the
company.
Belin told The Star Monday Port St.
Joe and Gulf County would also feel the
impact of the decision to develop proper-
ties in other counties. Belin said Port St.
Joe would particularly feel impact of


development in other counties in local port
development and rail traffic expansion.
"We're vitally interested in the
development of the port", Belin said. "We
intend to give it our interest and support as
it develops over the next few years". St.
Joe Paper gave the Port Authority a loan
of $250,000 to get the port planning started
some two years ago.
Belin said the development would be
an on-going thing. It will not be an
immediate change. "Not for the next year
or two", Belin said.
In the article in the Democrat, Belin
pointed to "long-term plans" of develop-


ment along the four county area from
Walton to Franklin counties. "We have
some prime sites in all these counties
which we will be developing or joining
others in developing", Belin said.
In the Democrat article Belin was
quoted as saying, "I think the time is
becoming ripe to develop these proper-
ties" while making an appraisal of
Florida's long term economy.
St. Joe lands bordering on fresh water
lakes and streams will be studied, he said,
as will beach frontage and industrial sites
near railroad lines.
There will be no change, according to


Belin, in the company's environmental
concerns. This is the reason for the slow
pace in development.
The firm wants to increase its income
without cutting into capital, o capital, to keep up
with the rising cost of health care at the
hospitals it supports.
The foundation, which is the benefici-
ary of most of St. Joe's profits, has spent
nearly a quarter of a billion dollars over
the last decade on the hospitals and on
welfare for the elderly in Delaware.
The hospitals consist of a crippled
children's hospital in Wilmington, Dela-
ware and one in Jacksonville.

t Was A Good Day



Saturday


It's amazing what can be done
if people put their efforts together
toward one goal.
One instance is the Christmas
parade which was seen in Port St.
Joe Saturday morning and the
activities which went on at the
corner of Fifth Street and Reid
Avenue.
We have heard more than one
person say they thought the
Christmas parade was one of the
best ever produced here. Whether
it was or not is beside the point. The
point is that they thought it was and
were appreciative enough of the
production to gay they thought it
*as a fine affair.
- A lot of people put a lot of work
"ito the parade and making it an
event to entertain the people of
Port St. Joe and surrounding areas.
: While we are offering plaudits
for those who did the work to put
the parade on, let's not forget to
offer a word of praise for the
thousands of people who came to
see the parade. It isn't much of a
parade if no one is watching.
People lined Reid Avenue all
the way from Fifth to First Street,
completely covering the sidewalk
fr6m one side to the other. They
were well behaved and enjoyed
themselves.
i While we are about it, let us'



IStill

:-Citizens of Florida are begin-
nirg to face bombardment from
eiery side to approve legalized
gambling for the state. For the past
s|i years, we have been faced with
tMis effort and the effort shows no
s!gn of abating.
: With an election year coming
up in just 23 days, we will likely see
thie effort intensified.
With legalized gambling in the
state at stake, Robert Dempsey,
head of the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement, says it is only a
niyth that legalized gambling in the
state would boost state government
budgets. Dempsey says the only
product it will boost is that of
organized crime in the state.
Due to its proximity to the drug
producing states of central and
South America, and the gambling
nieccas off-shore from the United
States and the cosmopolitan nature
of the state's population and tourist
interests, organized crime is more
active in the state now than natives
and residents deem desirable.


offer a few words of thanks to our
Police and Sheriff's Department
for being on the spot to see that the
same thing didn't happen here as
happened in Panama City the night
before. A young child slipped under
the wheels of a float and was
hospitalized with his injuries. We
have turned our head in years past,
and cringed at the sight of young
children darting so close to the
wheels of the fire truck in order to
get a closer look at Santa or dive
for the candy he tosses out as he
rides down the street. This year,
officers walked with the fire truck,
keeping the children at a safe
distance from the danger of the
truck's big wheels.

Those clubs, churches and
organizations carried on a carnival
atmosphere at the corner beside
City Hall all morning long and into
the afternoon. It all added to the
day and its activities. Without
exception, the booths had more
business than they expected. As a
consequence there were waiting
lines, but hardly a cross word was
spoken. Everybody seemed to
understand that the crowds were
bigger than usual and waited their
turn.
All in all, it was a good day
Saturday. One which was a credit
to our community and its people.



At It

Dempsey says any increase in
state revenues would be more than
off-set by the need for more law
enforcement officers and facilities.
In-an easily understood state-,
ment, Demipsey says: ".I believe
legalized gambling would have
negative impact on the state of
Florida". That's about as plain as
one can make it and is hardly the
kind of talk you would hear from a
department head in one of the
largest states in the union. He
doesn't use inuendos at all in
making his prediction.
One of the biggest selling
points used by pro gambling forces
is that it will increase state
revenues. In our hysteria to get out
of paying taxes of any kind, this
sort of argument is well designed to
appeal to a basic dislike of all of
us.
Dempsey says, in effect, don't
you believe it. Legalized gambling
will cost rather than pay the state
of Florida.


I am a golfaholic!
If you have never played a
game of golf, or if you are
just a once a month player
(just on special occasions),
consider yourself lucky.
For the past ten years I
have lived in the shadow of
the swinging .golf club. This
period of my life was marked
with fast and reckless drives
to the golf course, playing in
extremely cold and hot wea-
ther, forsaking my family,
and dreams of shooting the
perfect round. The perfect
round is eighteen holes-in-
one. I never came close.
My bout with golf began
innocently enough. A friend,
who played about once a
week, invited me to play a
round with him one Sunday.
We had played a football
game the night before and
were extremely sore. "It's
the perfect way to 'work out
the kinks,' he said. Little
did I know that it was the
beginning of an odyssey that
would lead me to the depths
of deprivation.
For a while I played only
on Sunday, after football
games. After football season,
however, I began to look for
reasons to play a round. It
was not matter that I
couldn't afford it. I was
young and reckless.
After I graduated from
college and went to work I
didn't have to look far to find
a reason to play. There was,
it seemed, always someone
wanting to play a few holes.
It was now much easier
because I could better afford
to feed my now fast growing
addiction.
Time soon became a major
factor. It wasn't too bad
during the summer because
there was usually time after
work to get in a few holes.
During the winter, however,
I was teApted minany times to
slip off work early. I was able
to resist; for a while, that is.
My problem grew much
worse after I was married. I
was soon the father of three
children and had finally
settled into a career (my wife
still has serious doubts about
this). The world of golf was
then exposed to me like a
giant stage and I was a
player thereon. And I was
playing my part well.
By now my thoughts con-
sisted, for the most part, only
of golf. I mentally played
several different courses
each day. I would run
through club selection from
different points on the course.
and would mentally hit the
shot that would bring me
closer to the "perfect
round."
One day, while in a busi-
ness meeting, my boss asked


me what I thought we should
do about a particular prob-
lem we were discussing.
"Lay up with a five iron, hit a
wedge to the green and hope
to one-putt," I answered,
thinking I was on the dogleg
number eleven at the Olym-
pia Spa. That went over like a
rock through a stained glass


window.
Another day, during a
severe electrical storm, I
slipped off work and met
three of my friends, Fred,
Bill and Jimmy, to play a
quick round 's we were
teeing off on number thir-
teen, lightning struck Fred
and killed him on the spot. It


took us four hours to play the
last six holes. Fred kept
falling out of the cart. I was
almost late for supper.
About five years after I had
really become addicted, I
realized something was
wrong, but I couldn't put my
finger on it. At first I thought
that it was my stance, but
something told me it was
much deeper than that. My
mind, now foggy and clouded
with too much swinging,
finally began to doubt that I
would ever reach my goal. I
played harder and more
often.
Things were happening
fast now! I began to take off
work to play. I couldn't sleep
and I began to skip meals to


play a few holes. Anyone will
tell you that a person is in the
final stages of "golf addic-
tion" when they start playing
on an empty stomach.
I was in serious trouble!
One Sunday morning, after
playing fifty-seven holes the
day before, I woke up and
found that I couldn't get out
of bed. I was shaking from
side to side, like I was hitting
a long putt, and I couldn't
stop. I fell on the floor and
crawled to my closet and
tried to reach my golf shirt I
had hidden behind a shoe
box. I finally reached it but I
couldn't get it on.
It was then that I made my
decision. I vowed never to

All Dressed Up to Welcome Santa Claus


Larger Crowds Than Expected Turn Out In Perfect Weather for Parade


: EVERYBODY WAS TRYING to
make a buck for their organization,
Saturday, and give all who showed up
for the parade and stayed downtown,
something good to eat.
I have been involved in the
Christmas parade every year for
many years now, but in all those years
I had never been involved in a food
both. It was an experience.
First off, we all showed up and
opened for business at 7:00 in the
morning. I didn't know anybody in the
world got up at 7:00 in the morning on
a Saturday. Saturday is my day to
sleep in and I just figured everyone
else did too.
I was right. There aren't very
many people who get out stirring at
7:00 a.m., on a Saturday: just us crazy
fools who are getting ready to sell
some food to people who have come to
the Christmas parade.

THERE WERE SOME members
of "the Lions Club on the corner with
us; I say "us", because I was part of
the Rotary Club members who were
getting ready to sell pancakes to any


and everyone who would come by with
$2.00.
Right away the Lions Club
members started competing with us,

out of the way when they started
selling.
They sent their smoke our way to
try and smoke us out. Bat, it didn't
work.
I wandered over to the Lions'
operation while our pancakes were
waiting for customers to start coming
and Bobby Jackson was overseeing
the whole operation, drinking a


going at the business of barbecuing
chickens. They told me they were
getting 400 chicken halves ready for
their opening at 10:00. They even'
prepared more and still ran out of
chickens.
Waylon Graham had about the
most useless job of all. He had the
duty to tell any and everyone who
came by, "Don't touch this grill
(pointing to a huge barrel-shaped


them.


MEANWHILE, OVER AT the
Rotary pancake center, Alden Farris
started off at the spatula, but Wendell
Campbell came along and Alden
talked him into just trying it. "It's
fun!" he enthused. Wendell couldn't
stand it and had to grab the spatula.
He got to hold it until 10:00.
I must say, Wendell is a quick


study. He caught on to cooking
pancakes in a hurry.
There for about an hour and a
half, the pancakes were selling faster
than Wendell could cook them. With
the line stringing out behind the
pancake wagon for about 50 feet, Ted
Cannon, who had taken over the
serving duties from Wayne Taylor
about this time urged Wendell to
"hurry up'!"
Wendell had really caught on to
the pancake thing by this time and
looked down his nose at Ted, glanced
back along the waiting line, then drew
himself up (bumping his head on the
low ceiling in the process) threw out
his chest, stood at attention as much
as he could with his head banging up
against a two by six timber, pointed
his spatula at a 45 degree angle and
solemnly intoned to Ted and the line of
waiting customers, "I will serve no
pancake before its time!"
From then on, Wendell worked at
his speed, unmolested.
+ + ++
THE ROTARIANS AND Lions
had no more than started good when


along came the stiffest competition of
all. Mrs. Faye Gardner, Mrs. Dave
Fernandez and some other lady I
couldn't see well enough to tell who
she was from my vantage point,
pulled up with their wood cookstove
and started building a fire in it to cook
sausage and biscuits.
Who can compete with sausage
and biscuits, cooked on a wood stove,
with any kind of victuals?
These ladies have made their
reputation with that wood cook stove
and their sausage and biscuits and pot
of chili in Christmas parades past.
They have a following.
To tell you the truth, a couple of
the Rotarians slipped over to the
sausage and biscuit wagon and
purchased "desert" after their break-
fast of pancakes.
Oh yes, we ate our own pancakes
and they were good.
As a matter of fact, everything
which was cooked on that corner
Saturday was good. It's just a pity
there wasn't enough of it.
The crowds were just more than
were expected.

Sheriff's Dept. Reports

Four Charged In Criminal Mischief


On Sunday, James Raker,
age 19, Billy Gainous, age 18,
and two juveniles, all of
Highland View, were arrest-
ed and charged with Grand
Theft and Criminal Mischief.
The charges occurred dur-
ing investigation into an
incident which involved some
logging equipment owned by
A. B. Traylor. The equipment
was located in the woods
behind Highland View. Ac-
cording to Sheriff Murphy, in
this particular incident, two
batteries were taken from a
logging skidder and another
skidder was used to run over
trees until it ran into a large
tree and was damaged to the
extent that it became dis-
abled.
In a similar incident, the
defendants allegedly stole 60


gallons of gas and tried to
steal two radios, and did
other damage to some log-
ging equipment, at a differ-

Company of St. Petersburg.
Raker, Gainous, and the
two juveniles have been


charged with Grand Theft
and Criminal Mischief. One
of the stolen batteries has
been recovered. Damage to
the equipment is estimated to
be in excess of $2500. The

were handled by Investigator
Charlie Hill.


Juvenile Girls Arrested


Two juvenile females were
arrested Saturday and char-
ged with introducing contra-
band into a correction facili-
ty.
According to Sheriff Mur-
phy, the incident occurred on
Saturday afternoon when the
two girls brought a bag of
cookies for one of the in-


mates. Jo O'Barr, correc-
tional officer on duty, search-
ed the bag of cookies and
found a marijuana cigarette
in the bag, underneath the
cookies..
The two girls were turned
over to juvenile authorities
and placed in the detention
center in Panama City.

him, McGee said, "I haven't
spoken to him since that
day".
Daniels was advised that
McGee had not broken any
laws in his treatment of
Daniels and Daniels then
threatened to take his char-
ges to a federal judge.
"That's just what you ought
to do", Mayor Frank Pate
retorted.
That ended the matter.
WANTS MORE MONEY
Arthur Atwell, who has
been re-working the windows
at the Centennial Building
under contract, came before
the Commission Tuesday
night asking for more money.
Atwell had contracted with
the city to replace all the
window sashes and windows
for a total of $6,835.78. Now
he is asking for $10,835,
claiming the material cost
more than he figured and
time to do the job was longer
than he estimated.
E. F. Gunn, the City's
inspector, told the Board, "I
gave him two opportunities
to back out of his bid before
he started work. I knew he
was taking it too cheap ; He;
said he was all right."' Gunn"
said Atwell had approached
him about the matter earlier
but he had told Atwell there
was nothing, he could do
about it. It would be up to the
Commission if there any
changes made in the con-


Eye
Openers
By Dr.
Wesley Grace


SLEEPING WITH
CONTACT LENSES
Q. Can sleeping with contact
lenses damage the eye?
A. Unless one is wearing ex-
tended-wear contact
lenses, the answer is yes.
Sleeping an entire night
with hard or daffily wear
soft lenses can cause an
abrasion (scratch), and
make the eyes excessive-
ly red and swollen. Abra-
sions can be very painful
and take several days to
heal completely. A deep
abrasion can do more
than momentary damage
to the eye.
Most eye damage caused
by sleeping with contact
lenses is due to lack of
adequate oxygen. Even
the newer gas-permeable
hard contact lenses do not
provide enough oxygen to
make the lenses safe for
sleeping.
You can wear the extend-
ed wear contact lenses
anywhere from 14 to 30
days, depending on the
type of extended-wear
lenses and the recommen-
dations of your optome-
trist. These lenses have a
higher water content than
daily-wear soft contact
lenses and allow a greater
amount of oxygen to
reach your eyes.
However, extended-wear
soft contact lenses are not
for all patients. It's wise
to discuss your individual
case with your optome-
trist.

tract.
Gunn said, "I know he
can't afford to absorb any of
this job. I would like to help
him out, but I can't. He
signed a contract to do the
job for a certain price and
now he says it is not enough."
There were two bidders on
the job and Atwell was the
successful bidder.
Atwell was paid the bal-
ance of his original bid
Tuesday night, but any addi-,
tional payment, if any, will
have to be worked out in the
future. Now, the Commission
is feeling they should stand
by the contract, although
they,- too, feel as if Atwell
cannot afford to absorb any
loss in the deal.
ACCEPT BIDS
Two bids were accepted to
furnish the City with equip-
ment needed.
--Southeastern Ford Trac-
tors of Dothan, Alabama,


was the low bidder for a new
tractor, at $9,782.00. South-
eastern had the lowest bid
which met the specifications.
-Davis Dyar, of Dothan,
Alabama, was the low bidder
for two sets of conveyor
screws for the Wastewater
Treatment Plant. Davis
Dyers' bid was for $4,000.

Honey Hints For The Holidays


Honey is one of the few
foods readily available that
is pure and unadulterated -
its natural chemistry keeps
it fresh for years without ad-
ditives or special care.
There are some rules that
must be followed when cook-
ing with honey that can
assure success and pleasure.
Some guidelines for the
use of honey come from an-
cient and traditional prac-
tices, since honey has been
used in cooking at least since
Roman times. It lends its
aroma to delicate cheese
mixtures; it enhances
vegetables and meats; and it
is the' agent that causes
cakes and cookies, over long
periods of' dark storage, to,
tavleve p' `ifri -incompaable
bouquet of spices and fruits.'
Honey cakes resembling
spiced loaves continue to be
baked in many European
and Near East countries.
In small amounts, honey
heightens flavor without
itself being distinguishable
in greater proportion, it
.quickly tends to dominate a
mixture. Light colored
honeys tend to have a less
pronounced effect in flavor
combinations, so they should
be chosen when an uniden-
tifiable sweetness is desired.
Dark mellow honeys such as
buckwheat contribute flavor
and are excellent in spicy
pastries. Occasionally
oneys such as eucalyptus
are so strongly flavored that
they are not recommended
for cooking appreciate
them on toast or in tea. A
dish in which honey
disguises or obliterates the
natural flavors of the other
ingredients is a disappoint-
ment even to a confirmed
honey eater.
Honey is like wine. To an
uneducated palate, one
honey is as distinguishable
from another as is a burgun-
dy or a Riesling. Different
grapes and different regions
with different climates
determine the differences in
the flavors of wines. Dif-
ferent nectars and different
regions with different
climates determine the dif-
ferences in the flavors of
honey. Sample different
honeys. You will soon
discover your favorite
flavors and find that some
honeys are better than
others for substitution in
your favorite recipes.


Here is a list of some com-
mon honey types in approx-
imate order of mild flavor to
strong flavor:
1. Thistle
2. Locust
3. Tupelo
4. Alfalfa
5. Clover
6. Sage.
7. Palmetto
8. Blueberry
9. Blackberry

(When icing gets sugary,
reheat slightly, adding a lit-
tle water until clear again.)

Eggnog For A Party
Beat separately until light
in color: 12 egg yolks. Beat
in gradually: 12 Tbsp. of
Powers honey. Add very
slowly, beating constantly: 2
cups dark rum, brandy,
bourbon, or rye. These li-
quors may each form the
basic ingredient of the nog or
may be combined to taste.

for 1 hour to dispel the

Add, beating constantly: 2
to 4 cups of liquor chosen, 2
quarts whipping cream, (1
cup peach brandy).
Refrigerate covered for 3
hours. Beat until stiff, but
not dry: 8 to 12 egg whites.
Fold them lightly into the
other ingredients. Serve the
eggnog sprinkled with
freshly grated nutmeg.

little more spirit to the

just enough."

THE STAR. Port St. Joe. Fla. THURSDAY. DEC. 8, 1983 PAGE FIVE


By Margaret Key Biggs
No more than a weaver can
separate the woof from the
warp can a writer separate
Mrs. Maybel Stone Swatts
from the history of Gulf
County, for Mrs. Swatts is an
integral part of this second
Eden.
The first white girl child
here, she was born in what is
now Port St. Joe, but which
was, at that time, Indian
Pass. Port St. Joe was the
name given this town in 1910.
It was Mrs. Swatts' father,
Terrell Higdon Stone, who
was responsible for the town
being named Port St. Joe and
our county's being named
Gulf. Mrs. Swatts remem-
bers it this way:
"...it was largely the brain-
child of my dad...who be-
cause of his numerous treks
to Blountstown as one of the
Commissioners of Calhoun
County was able to see the
real need for separation from
the mother-county and to


inspire others in this area to
work for this cause also.
Then, when the officials were
about to name the new
county "Satsuma," my Dad
jumped to his feet with the
words, 'A freeze can come
and kill every last satsuma
tree, but that gulf's never
going to run dry. Let's name
it Gulf'- and "Gulf" it
was..."
When the monument was
unveiled in Constitution
Park, it was Maybel Stone
and Elizabeth Jones (Tom-
linson) who were given the
honor of unveiling that mark-
er of our proud heritage.
Mrs. Swatts also christened
the courthouse in Wewahit-
chka when it was built.
But it is not the historical
events and contributions of
Mrs. Swatts that make her an
outstanding person.
Nor is it her exceptional
musical talent, for she is a
faithful member of the
Methodist choir, the bell
choir, which is a living


THE GREAT


TIDE
The Great Tide is a romantic historical
novel of a fabulous era in Florida which tells
the story of a boom-town Gulf port, planta-
tion life in Florida's fabulous West Coast in
the 1830's and 1840's, and the background of
a beautiful, headstrong Caroline Nicholas
Green Chohran who dominated the lives of
three men in the city of St. Joseph. Stronger
than any other among its dramatic
- characters, is Caroline herself, a great lady
in setting of political duel, and brawls, a
schemer for possessions and luxury. The
Great Tide will sweep you along in much ex-
citement while reading this great novel. (It
will make a wonderful Christmas gift).

monument to her late hus-
band, Ralph Swatts, Sr.,
organist for the Eastern Star,
and a composer of music that
has been used for local, state,
and national occasions, espe-
cially at Eastern Star con-
ventions.
Neither is it her contribu-
tions to organizations such as
the DAR in which she holds
the highest office, that of
Regent, the Saint Joseph
Historial Society, nor the
Port St. Joe Garden Club.
One may begin to under-
stand what makes Mrs.
Swatts so special when one
realizes what a devout Chris-
tian woman she is, one who
serves her church with a
magnificent obsession. She
has held so many church
offices and positions that it is
impossible to list them all.
Suffice it to say that she is
a member of the Executive
Committee of the Alabama-
West Florida Conference and
has put in a dozen years on
the Conference Board, has
served 13 years on the
District Board of the United
Methodist Women of which
she was the first President
after Methodist women or-
ganized under that name.
She taught the adult women's
Sunday School class for


twenty years, and had the
privilege of naming it the
Marie Jones Bible Class.
Her contributions to her
church and its work resulted
in her being listed in "Who's
Who in America in Religion"
in 1974.
Even so, there is more to
be discovered about this
remarkable woman who has
three successful children,
Mrs. Virginia Harrison, Mr.
Ralph Swatts, Jr., and Mr.
Higdon Swatts, and nine
grandchildren.
When I asked her what her
fondest memories were of St.
Joe, she said, "Who can say?
Maybe scouring the woods on
the way to my dad's turpen-
tine still to play and to ride
the barrels, chasing squirrels
and dodging snakes, mostly
rattlers and moccasins, and
steering clear of the alliga-
tors that seemed to be in all
the streams we had to cross.
Maybe the high point was
picking berries and wild
grapes and taking them'
home to be made into delici-
ous pies and jellies, or maybe
it was sailing with the Costin
children in goods boxes in the
pond behind the Costin store,
using sticks or boards for
paddling around, and then
building playhouses .in the

Weight Control Clinic


Edwin R. Ailes, Executive
Director of the Gulf County
Guidance Clinic, Inc. has
announced that the Clinic is
sincerity mixed with com-
passion, concern, love, and
understanding that draw old
and young alike to this
special person.
Mrs. Swatts says, "Life in
early St. Joe was real, and
for that I am grateful.
Through the good times and
the bad each Stone child was
held accountable for his or
her own responsibilities, and
we enjoyed many privileges
that were unavailable to
children who grew up in
established cities."
Her life is a testimony that
she knows well the meaning
of accountability and respon-
sibility, and her sense of
responsibility reaches
around the world, for she has
done much work that has had
its impact on near and
distant places.
When I asked her what she
likes the most about Gulf
County, she said, "I like Gulf
County because it was the old
"stomping ground" of many
of my ancestors, and there
are many evidences of their
having been here, and deeply
involved in the things of their
day- in government, local


accepting participants in the
Clinic's next "Weight Control
Programs." Morning and
evening weight control
groups will be available in
early January 1984. Potential
participants are encouraged
to contact the Clinic and
register now so that specific
times for these groups can be
scheduled.
According to Mr. Ailes, the
purpose of the Clinic's
."Weight Control Program"
is to provide individuals with
psychological and behavioral
techniques fr weight loss
and weight ,tss manage-
ment. Techniques of beha-
vior modification combined
with basic nutritional infor-
mation are provided to assist
individuals with managing
their weight on a permanent
basis. According to Ailes, the
program at the Clinic is
designed to help individuals
in "developing the skills of
effective weight loss and
lifetime weight manage-
ment."


Mr. Ailes stated that all
participants in past weight
control groups at the Clinic
have reported satisfaction
and significant weight loss.
Anyone interested in the
Gulf County Guidance Clinic
Weight Control Programs
should contact Mr. Ailes at


227-1145. Individuals will be
interviewed individually and
then seen on a weekly basis
in small groups at the Clinic.
Enrollment in the programs
is limited so potential partici-
pants should call the Clinic
and register at the earliest
possible date.

woods close by, and listening
to the parrot calling each
family member by name and
saying plaintively, 'Polly's so
hungry'!"
Still thinking back, she
said, "Maybe the beach was
the most fun- the swim-
ming, the shoot-to-shoot, or
the merry-go-round in the
water, or playing leap frog on
the sand, or meeting the train
on excursion days and buying
ice cream and candy from
the concession stands. May-
be the church and school
plays and programs...or the
very special day when my
name was added to the
church roll."
When one is rich with
grand memories, it is hard to
say. Mrs. Swatts added,
"Maybe it was the quiet time
in the evening when we
listened to wonderful stories
and to my dad playing his
violin."
Perhaps it is because she is
filled with so many precious
memories that she sets about
making life precious for
others. And Mrs. Swatts does
just that, for when she finds a
person with a need, she tries
to fill that need. It is her
gentleness, her kindness, her


and state, in the educational
process, in law and order,
and in the establishment and
maintenance of churches."
"I like Gulf County be-
cause of its beauty of woods
and forests and its lakes and
streams, and the wildflowers
that thrill the sense and the
eyes, and the abundance of
wild fruit and berries with
their appeal to the palate,
and the wild game and fish
that attract the hunter and
the photographer and the
artist."
Mrs. Swatts is herself an
artist, a poet whose verses
serve to inspire many, but
more importantly, she is
living poetry who puts music
into the lives of those who
know her. How fortunate is
the one who calls her friend,
and anyone who wishes to
make that claim can be her
friend.
"Most of all I am grateful
for the Christian parents who
taught me that the Way of
Christ is "the" way of Life. If
only all children could be so
blessed!" says Mrs. Swatts.
We in Gulf County who call
Maybel Stone Swatts friend
and neighbor count ourselves
blessed in all seasons.

Christmas Lagniappe

Special arrangements have been made by the folks at
Indian Pass to have available for your holiday enjoyment

fresh shucked INDIAN LAGOON OYSTERS. Beginning
December 1st, orders will be accepted for these
epicurean delicacies for later pick-up. A minimum of
three days notice must be given to assure your order be-
ing filled. These will not be the machine ground, stabbed,
oysters with all the flavor washed out that are unfor-
tunately found in most grocery stores. These delicate
morsels will be individually handled and lovingly remov-
ed surgically from their shells by thin steel blades and
gently packed in their own juices. The Choctaw and
Creek Indians paddled hundreds of miles to eat what they
(and we) believed to be this aphrodisial "Food of the
Gods". During this period you can acquire them for

$4.95 a pint
OR ONLY

$30.00 per gallon

For you do-it-yourself he men we continue
to offer those
excellent quality bushels of In-
dian Pass oysters in the shell.
: The oysters you eat today slept _-_ o
last night in the soft beds of In-
, dian Lagoon.
Call 227-1670
to reserve your holiday treat.

Martin Perry, manager of

Sfor the U.S Department of
Interior, spoke to the Kiwan-

telling them of the island,
showing slides and giving
some of the history .of the

sturdy grounded metal populating it with exotic

on. world. In recent years all the
imported animals were re-
moved from the island with
the exception of the Sanbar
deer. Perry says St. Vincent
has the only herd of Sanbar
deer running wild, in the
United States. 'A native of
India, the Sanbar is consider-
ably larger than the native
white tail deer, which is also
found in abundance on the
island.
St. Vincent's main purpose

again came from behind,
using their free throw shoot-
ing and surged ahead in the
third quarter, to beat Bay
High of Panama City, 72-65.
The Sharks were never in

controlled hunts. "We get
many hunters who come only
for the hog hunting because
the hogs on the island are in
better shape than the main-
land hog", the speaker said.-
The management area di-
rector said the island has
curtailed guided tours of the
island because of govern-
ment funds reductions, but
still allowed tours and visits
on foot to explore the island's
some 80 miles of roads. and
trails and see its beauties.
Perry said the University
of Georgia is entering into a
study of the Sanbar deer on
the island as a graduate
project. The study is being
financed..by St. Joe Paper
Company.
