Approve Lake Question for Ballot


Straw Vote Will Ask for Citizens


'pinion for Removal of Dam


The people of Gulf County will be able to take
sides in the Dead Lakes dam controversy, but they
still will not make the final decision as to whether
or not to remove the tumbler dam at the south end
of the Lakes.
A constant squabble all year long has kept the
removal question before the people, with the
former Dead Lakes Management Commissionr and
the present Commission verbally assaulting each
other about the matter.
Tuesday, Jim Bozeman, the former chairman
of the Dead Lakes Commission, who was fired by
Governor Bob Graham in January of last year,
asked the Commission to place a simple question
on the Presidential Preference Primary ballot in
March to take a straw sampling of the people of
Gulf County as to whether they agree with the
proposal to remove the dam.
Bozeman said, "I as former chairman of the


Commission and more than 2,000 people who have
signed petitions asking for the dam's removal, ask
you to place a simple question on the ballot in
March. We would ask that the question:'Do you
favor removal of the Dead Lakes dam, yes or
no.' Bozeman pointed out that Calhoun County
was also placing the same question on their ballot
in March.
Donnell Whitfield, a commissioner in Calhoun
County, was present at the meeting and verified
Bozeman's statement. Whitfield asked the Gulf
County Commission to consider the same question
on its ballot.
Chairman Everett Owens quickly jumped into
the conversation stating, "We had already decided
to do just what you are asking us to do. We just had
not fully decided on which election we would place
the question on the ballot".


NO POWER TO REMOVE DAM
Commissioner Doug Birmingham quickly point-
ed out that even though the question was placed on
the ballot, the County Commission would have no
power to remove or retain the dam, no matter
what the decision of the voters.
Bozeman said he realized that only the
Department of Natural Resources or the Dead
Lakes Commission would have the power to
remove the dam,, but the ballot would be a test of
the feelings of the people of the county.
Although everything seemed to be prepared
for a long seige of attempting to get the
Commission to include the question on the March
ballot, the matter was over almost before it began.
Bozeman made his request and the County made
an immediate affirmative answer. The only
decision now to be made is to determine if the

Ready
The Gulf County Commis-
sion is ready to go out for
construction bids on the
Beaches water system, ac-
cording to a report made to
the Commission Tuesday by
county attorney William J.
Rish. "The ordinances are
prepared allowing you to sell
the bonds and the plans are
drawn to the bid state", Rish
reported.
Rish advised the Commis-
sion that they still needed to
get approximately 75 percent
of the beaches residents
signed up and deposits paid
as a requisite of the Farmers
Home 'Administration for
providing the funds for con-
struction. Rish said, "The
ordinance requires the sys-
tem to operate entirely off
revenues, with no ad valorem
taxes involved in any manner
so FHA ;is requiring these
people to be signed; up and
deposits paid".
Chairman Everett Owens
remarked, "This puts the
ball in their court, then".
Owens reported that al-
ready some 175 potential
customers have signed up
'and paid their $75.00 deposit


to Move On Beach Water


for the system. "We need
approximately 225 to 250
customers to sign up", Ow-
ens said.


The chairman recognized
that many of the customers
were reluctant to. part with
their deposit money since


several attempts at securing
a water system for the
beaches had fallen short of
the goal in the past. "That


Callaway Man Killed In


Industrial Accident Here


Walter Dee (Bunny) Williams of
Callaway, was pronounced dead on arrival
at Gulf Pines Hospital Monday morning
after being taken to. the hospital with
injuries suffered from a fall at Sylvachem.
According to Mike Temtpleton, Sylva-
chem plant manager, Williams had just
-gondi to work with his crew on replacing,
some bracing.under overhead piping at the
plant, when the accident happened. "No-
body knows definitely what happened",
Templeton said. "His working partner
didn't see him fall or see how he struck the
ground. One moment he was getting into
position to go to work and the next instant,
he was seen lying on the ground",
Templeton said. "It was a tragic accident
and everyone out here is still in shock over
it", Templeton said.
Williams worked for I.C. Contractors of


Panama City, who had the contract to
replace the pipe bracing.
Gulf County Sheriff Ken Murphy said
the accident is still' under investigation to
determine, if possible, what made Williams
take the fatal fall. Murphy said, "We believe
_ he died at the scene", but there is no.officia!
opinion on when death actually occurred.
Murphy said his investigation is '
matter.of routine, required on all accidents
which are not witnessed. "So far, it has been
ruled an accident. We don't know for sure
why he fell", Murphy pointed out.
Williams was a Bay County native,
making his home in Callaway. He is
survived by a wife and two children.
Funeral services for the 54-year-old iron
worker were held Wednesday.
This was the second fatal accident at
Sylvachem in its history in Port St. Joe.


Qualification Open for



County Party Candidates


The lines are being drawn for
election of a party preference for
President of the United States in
Florida during the month of March.
In addition to the election of a
Presidential preference selection in
March, the Democratic and Republi-
can parties of Gulf County will be
selecting precinct committeemen and
committeewomen from each of the 13
precincts. in the county. These party
representatives are a part of the state
committees which set policy for party
procedures, which are important in
the election of a president and
important in the representation of
members of -the parties in state
meetings. Here in Gulf county, as in
most counties in north Florida, the
large majority of voters are register-
ed IDemocrats.


With growing membership in the
Republican party and changes in
voting procedure being made almost
every year, the election of party
officials is becoming more and more
important for the rank and file voter.
REGISTER AS CANDIDATES
Gulf County will be electing
members of the Committees in
March, but candidates for the party
offices must register their intentions
to seek election to the posts between
January 10 and 24 with the Supervisor
of Elections, Cora Sue Robinson.
Committee members to be elected
are voted on by members in their
precincts only. The party committee
members are not voted on county-
wide. To run for the post of committee
representative from either party, the


candidate must live in the precinct he
or she wishes to represent on the
committee and must be already
registered for their particular party
on January 1 of the current year.
Florida law allows for a male and
female representative for each 1,000
voters from any precinct. No precinct
in Gulf County has more than 1,000
voters registered, so each precinct is
eligible for only one male and one
female committeeman for each party.
REGISTRATION BOOKS OPEN
The county's registration books
are presently open for voters to
qualify for casting a ballot in the
Presidential Preference election on
March 13. The voter registration
books will remain open until February
13, when they will be closed for
registration of Presidential electors.

isn't" the case with this
attempt", Owens said. "We
are ready to go to work with
construction right now".
Rish showed the Commis-
sion the plans for the system,
which will take its treated
water from the City of Port
St. Joe, with water being
furnished for the Highland
View system as well. The
Highland View system has
been in a bad state of
disrepair and inattention for
the past several years. The
beaches system will furnish a
water supply to the Highland
View system, as well as
maintain the present well for
emergency use. .
PUBLIC MEETING

system, Owens proposed the
Commission hold a public
meeting at the Beaches, in
the fire station next Thurs-
day to answer any questions
residents of the area to be
served -may have about the
new system. Owens said the
meeting would also provide
an opportunity for people to
sign up for the system and
pay their deposit.
The new system will cost
approximately $1.2 million
and will be financed by a
grant of $550;000 and the
remainder a low interest loan
from Farmers Home Admin-
istration. The service area to
be covered will be from the
western edge of Highland
View to the Florida Bank
drive-in installation at the
beaches.
Highland View will be
furnished a bulk water sup-
ply only, utilizing their pres-
ent distribution system. The
beaches system will include
a supply pipeline and the
entire distribution system.
GRANT FRANCHISE
Robert Newman of Gulf
Cable TV was granted a
franchise to serve the Oak
Grove area with cable televi-
sion service, but deferred a
request to grant a franchise
to serve all the county other
than incorporated areas.
Newman pointed out that
the -franchise was non-
exclusive. "If another firm
comes in for a franchise for a
vicinity and they are ready to
build, they could get a
franchise to go into business.

The new year was only seven days
old when Gulf County experienced its
first traffic fatalities of the year.
Saturday evening, just before dark, a
Volkswagen sedan, driven by Charles D.
Segers, 44, of St. Joe Beach, slammed
into a tree, killing, both Segers and his
younger brother, Gerald W. Segers, 39,
also of St. Joe Beach.
The accident happen at about sundown
Saturday afternoon on C-30, about five
miles south of Port St. Joe.
According to Chester Gant, of Port St.
Joe, he (Gant) was driving toward Port
St. Joe, meeting a pick-up truck on the
highway. Suddenly, the Volkswagen
swerved into his view behind the pick-up,
in an apparent attempt to pass. "Evi-
dently the driver saw my car at this
point, because he then swerved back into
his lane and apparently over-compensat-
ed, causing the car to go off the shoulder
in the small car's lane, striking a tree".
Gerald Segers was thrown out of the
car on the passenger side and was
pronounced dead at the scene. Charles
Segers was pinned in the wreckage and
was removed by Gulf County Ambulance
Service rescue crews and taken to Gulf
Pines Hospital for treatment. Segers'
injuries were serious and needed the
attention of a specialist. He was
transferred to a Panama City hospital,
but died of his injuries before arriving at
the hospital.
OTHER CRASHES
Two other automobile accidents
were reported inside the Port St. Joe city
limits over the week end, but only minor
injuries resulted from the two crashes.

WOODS FIRE
Monday morning, a second
fire burned over several
acres of woodlands between
the Gulf County Library
building and the AN Railroad
tracks.
The Florida Forestry Ser-
vice was called to the blaze to
plow a fire line around the
burning area, to contain the
fire.
Fire department officials
had no opinion as to how the
fire started.


Last Friday at 4:00 p.m., a car and",
pulp wood truck collided at the intersec-
tion of Fifth Street and Highway 98.
According to police reports, Williston
Chason of St. Joe was travelling north on
Highway 98 in one lane of the four-lane
highway, with the pulpwood truck in the
other lane going in the same direction.
Chason said he recognized the truck
driver couldn't see him in his present
location and he was beginning a right
hand turn which would cause the truck to
run over ,Chason's car. Chason said he
attempted to pass the truck, but couldn't
get around quick enough, before the
truck struck Chason's car.
The automobile suffered extensive
damage along the driver's side. Damage
to the truck was minor. Neither Chason
or the truck driver, Richard Sapp, of
Panama City, were hurt.
Monday afternoon at 2:30, two cars-
collided at the intersection of Eighth
Street and Woodward Avenue with Mrs.
Deborah Smith of Port St. Joe being -
taken to Gulf Pines Hospital, examined
and released. -=
According to Police Chief Roy-
Robinson, Perry Yoder of Blountstown
was travelling west on Eighth Street and
failed to stop for the sign at the
intersection. His car crossed into the
path of a second vehicle driven by Mrs.
Smith,' who was travelling south on
Woodward Avenue.
Yoder was charged by city police with
failure to yield right-of-way.
Estimated damages to both vehicles-
was over $2,000.

Oystermen Grumble


At D1NR Action


The Department of Natural
iResources is not making friends
:very fast. As a matter of fact, the
,oystermen of both Gulf and Frank-
ilin counties are just about ready to
:declare a revolution against the
:state agency and some of its rules
:and regulations.
The Department didn't exactly
,ingratiate itself with the oystermen
.when they shut down oystering two
weeks prior to Christmas. They
,further alienated themselves with
'the oystermen when they tried to
arrest an Apalachicola oyster
house operator, when he refused to
give the state oyster shell his house
had shucked out from Louisiana
:oysters.
DNR regulations require that
:oyster houses allow the state to
collect all their oyster shells for the
stated purpose of reinserting the,
shells into oyster producing waters.
* The oystermen have had the
:complaint that DNR is collecting
hut not planting the oyster shells.
$ince the shells have a value as
both growing stock and as a
construction material, the DNR's
inactivity with the shells is an
unsettling factor among the oyster-
mlen.

DNR insisted on collecting shells
from Louisiana oysters where a
dealer insisted they weren't entitl-
ed to, really stirred up the
producers and caused the revolu-
tion talk.
They now have plans to make
DNR plant the shells like they
promised to do or quit collecting
them.
That seems to be a reasonable
request, whether or not one is an
oyster producer or sells the tasty
shellfish. And while we're looking
at the performance in the place-
ment of shells, let's also inspect the
practice of closing the bay to
production. Hardly anybody would
object to a legitimate closing of the
bay if need be. It is beginning to
appear as if some of the closing is
decided on a basis of "might be" or
"Could be" rather than the fact
that it is dangerous to continue
producing. With the sophisticated
expertise we have today, one can't
tell us that tests cannot be made to
definitely determine the need for
closing oyster producing beds.
We think that before they are
through with their "revolt", the
oystermen will demand such tests
be made before closing in the
future.



ans Knew
the Russian transmissions to indi-
cate that the Korean pilot knew he
was being observed, that he was
being followed by the Russians,
that the Russians fired a warning
shot or radioed the plane to give it
any instructions, whatever. There
is no indication of any kind which
even gives, an inkling ,that the
Korean jet pilot was aware of being
off course.
That's some pretty heavy stuff.
If the Digest article is true, and
it had some pretty strong credits to
back up .its statements, then the
Russians are guilty of murder of
the worst sort. According to a
summary by the Russian pilot and
by other observers, the Russians
shot down the jet merely because
their interceptors had missed on
intercepting a passenger plane
which had wandered into their
airspace some months earlier.
Worse than that, there is even
evidence given in the article which
indicates the Russians may have
jammed the navigational signals
deliberately to draw the passenger
jet off course, so it would cross
Russian territory.


Recently I read an article
that confirmed what I
thought all along; there are a
lot of crazy people in Miami.
Other reports I have read
and heard since then have
made it crystal clear that
Miami is not the only town in
our country that is hurting.
It's unbelievable that
people, supposedly of sound
mind, would literally attack
and fight for a doll. The
Cabbage Patch doll has
created something of a craze
in recent weeks. And, it's not
kids that are going crazy!
These dolls, an off-shoot of
Georgia's Little People dolls,
are among the ugliest dolls I
have ever seen. They have a
birth certificate that I can't
imagine being real. There
must be something, however,
to make adults fight and pay
large sums of money for a
fat, rounded, gingerbread
looking doll. I don't believe
kids can be that enthralled
about them.
The only thing more ab-
surd than Cabbage Patch
dolls was the "rock rush."
Remember when the man
cleaned up a bunch of rocks
and was about to haul them
off when, in a flash of
inspiration, he thought he
might be able to sell them to
unsuspecting tourists. He
cleaned them off, printed a
name on each one and
started selling them as pets.
It was a "bonanza" and he
made a large fortune. I can
just see him now, reclining in
his lounge chair, overlooking
his giant swimming pool,
chuckling to himself as he
thinks about all the people
who plopped down hard
earned money for the rocks
that he was about to haul off
to some desolate place in the
desert. If you could ask him
why people bought pet rocks,
I'll bet he would reply,
"people are crazy and they
will buy anything!"

Hutto Speaking
In Area Jan. 19
Representative Earl Hutto
will be the featured speaker
on Thursday, January 19th,
at 3:00 PM at the Bay County
Public Library in ceremonies
celebrating its designation as
a Federal Documents De-
pository.
Doug Grimm, Chairman of
the Northwest Regional Li-
brary Board Of Directors will
preside. Barrett Wilkins,
State Librarian, will speak,
and dignitaries from Wash-
ington, D. C. will attend. The
Bay High School Symphonic
Band will provide music
from 2:30 to 3:00 P.M.


I'll admit that there has
been some excellent market-
ing strategy involved in the
selling of these dolls. The
sales meeting would probab-
ly go something like this. The
sales manager gets up and
addresses the salesmen.
"Men, we have a new


product to introduce to you
today and we want you to
introduce it to the world. We
have created the ugliest,
most awful looking doll ever
imagined. We are going to
produce only ten million of
them. We will advertise that
there were only two thousand


Shiver Me Kumquats!
The kumquat trees, which usually withstand quite a bit
of cold weather, and, along with satsumas, are among the


of them produced and fifty-
will go to select stores
throughout the country. And,
we will only let the select
stores have fifty. The stores,
in turn, will advertise these
ugly dolls and the amount
they have on hand. This will
create a "rush" to buy them.
We will then release another
hundred or so and they will
be gobbled up. Then, when
the fever is at its highest
pitch, we will unload the
remaining eight million. By
the time people have bought
them and realize they have
been duped, we will be in
Algeria trying to spend all
the money!"


I'll bet they are still
counting their money!
How do you think all those
people with pet rocks feel?
I'll bet most of them have
taken hammers to their
rocks by now. If anyone ever
introduces me to a rock, I
think I might hit them in the
head .with it! I feel the same
way about Cabbage Head
dolls.
Anyway, that's the way I
used to feel. My daughter's
doll is named Carlton Cordell
and he's a cute little bugger!
We're taking him to the
Cabbage Patch hospital, next
week (in Atlanta) for a
check-up.

: Asking me that is about like

' ill be in 1984. It's anybody's guess.
E To be perfectly honest with you, I
live no idea what will happen in 1984.
SI did, I wouldn't be a struggling
Mekly newspaper man. I would be
rich, or at least well-to-do from the

ltcause I knew what was going to

The picture didn't come out
because of a shortened roll of film
inside, which served P purpose all its

her brand new car with only 451 miles
on it?"
Williston was considering taking
off for Hawaii or someplace farther
and I just shivered at the thought.
I suggested, as a desperate
measure, that he might just take the
car home and park it in the carport
and hope Miss Frances would drive it
somewhere Saturday, park it, and


the rear view mirror hanging by a
wire on the driver's side when she got
into the car; or she might just realize
there was no door handle on that side
of the car. If she didn't take heed to
those two small matters, she just may
feel the cold air coming into the car
where the door was peeled back from
the front door post.
If she didn't notice that, the
shattered windshield would be a dead
give-away.
Come to think of it, that wasn't


such a good idea after all.

IF IT'S BENEFICIAL for man-

did Florida have three bona-fide post

the number one team in the nation.
But that isn't all. Florida is offering
almost as handy a tool to the people of
the nation at large, as it handed to the
citizens of the Sunshine State in being
the home of national champion
Miami.
(That may be a round about way
of doing it, but I had to do a little
bragging about the state having the
number one team in the U.S.A.)
Florida scientists have come up
with what they believe is the cure-all
for the nation's roach problem.

it to Florida scientists to come up with
a plan to make roaches an endangered
species.
If the EPA gets into this one,
cause of the threat to the continuation.
of the roach species, I'm just going to
give up.


Dr. Philip G. Koehler, an ento-
mologist at the University of Florida,
has come up with a gunk to make
roaches sterile!
From the proliferation of roaches
in the past, we feel Dr. Koehler hit
right at home on a roach's favorite
pastime.
According to what I read, this
gunk, which Dr. Koehler has announ-
ced, makes both the male and female
roach sterile.
The same thing happened to the
fruit fly, you remember, and that bug
has become about as rare as a $10,000
bill.
The substance has been sent to
EPA for approval and is expected to
be on the market next year.
Just don't get your hopes too high.
Getting by EPA may be a harder task
than getting rid of roaches is at the
present time.
Roaches have been with us for
about 350 million years in their
present form. If this substance makes
them disappear the gunk developed
by the UF scientists can be legitimate-
ly labeled as the llth wonder of the
world.

The only reason I'm asking
for such a franchise is to keep
from having to come back
every time I want to extend
into an area not now being
served. If I decide in the near
future to go into Jones
Homestead, for instance, I
will have to come back here
for another franchise."
Commissioner Billy
Branch advised Newman an-
other firm had expressed a
desire to go into Highland
View since Newman had not
expanded to the area as yet.
Newman explained that
the economics in the system
would not allow him to
profitably cross the Gulf
County Canal as yet. "I'll
eventually get to the High-
land View area, but I can't
get into a race with another
firm to get to serve the
area.
The Commission decided to
take Newman's countywide
request under advisement
until the next meeting.
OTHER BUSINESS
In other business matters,
the Commission:
-Granted St. Joe Natural
Gas Company permission to
cut the paving on one of the
entrances to the High School
parking lot to lay a gas line.
Normally a utility is required
to jack their lines under
paving, but the cutting was
allowed since the hard sur-
face was already in such bad
condition.

services of Barret, Carlin
and Daffin of Tallahassee, to
assist in making an applica-
tion for a permanent renewal

wording of the question to be placed on the ballot is
proper. The opinion of the attorney, Tuesday, was
that the language was acceptable and perfectly
clear.
FAST BREAKING EVENTS
The request for the decision to be placed on the
ballot followed some fast breaking events over the
week end in the Dead Lakes controversy.
Jerry Gates, secretary-treasurer for the Dead
Lakes Commission, charged the chairman of the
board, Forest Revell, with illegally spending over
$7,268.81 of the Management Board funds.
Gates said he was the only one authorized by
law to spend the funds. The Dead Lakes
Management Board voted recently to empower
the chairman and one other member of the board


to sign checks, taking Gates out of the financial
picture.
Gates, however, has not attended a meeting
since July when the legality of the Board was
questioned by a Calhoun County judge. Gates has
claimed the board is sitting and acting illegally
and has not made himself available at their
meetings, pending a decision as to their legality by
the courts.
The Dead Lakes Board owed a payment on a
note for financing structures at the dam, which
was due January 1. Revell said the financial
maneuvers were made to allow the Board to meet
its payment.
Revell said the Board voted unanimously,
including the two members from Calhoun County

who favor removal of the dam, to give him the
power to transfer the money from a savings
account and make the payment.
Gates still claims the action was illegal and
that he is still the Board treasurer, by law.
The action taken by the Dead Lakes Board all
happened after December 29, when Revell says he
was given the authority to act. The move
apparently took Gates by surprise.
The reaction by Gates and others who favor
removal of the dam, was to charge Revell with
illegally handling the Board's money.
Between the actions by Revell, Gates and now
by the County Commission, the Dead Lakes should'
keep 1984 an interesting year. at least for the

Mrs. Ida Ethel Brown: A



Legend In Her Own Time


Mrs. Brown is interested in
art. She has preserved for
posterity several scenes of
early St. Joe and Carrabelle.
She also enjoys beach walk-
ing, swimming, drinking cof-


fee with friends and neigh-
bors, and reading.
She credits one of her
teachers in particular, Mrs.
Calla Perritt Gibson, for
instilling a love for reading in


her.
There are hundreds who
credit Mrs. Brown for instil-
ling a lust for learning within
(Continued on Page 6)


ESTABLISHED 1904


By Margaret Key Biggs
Senator George Tapper has
said to her, "You're an
institution." Mrs. David May
once told her, "You're a
legend in your own time."
Mrs. Bob King observed,
"You're Port St. Joe's Grand
Dame." And Mrs. James
Philyaw declared, "You've
worked in everything good in
this town." Those who are
privileged to know Mrs.
Charles Brown, Ida Ethel,
will agree with them all.
Born in Carrabelle, Mrs.


Brown came to Port St. Joe
in 1919. She says, "I stepped
out on the porch of the old
Port Inn, and have had a love
affair with St. Joe Bay ever
since."
That love affair led her to
write a musical composition
entitled, "On the Beautiful
St. Joseph Bay" which earn-
ed her awards from local
civic organizations.
Music has always been
a part of Mrs. Brown's life.
At the age of three she could
hear a piece once, then go to
the piano and duplicate it.


She reveals, "However, I'm
no hymn player- too much
of the jazz and rag are in me
for that."
Mrs. Brown plays the
classics and semi-classics.
For years she taught piano
pupils. Recently she has been
playing for the St. Joseph
Bay Nursing Home. She
stated, "We both know all the
old songs."
Her music was to earn her
a medal when she was in
school, but do not get the idea
that this woman spent all of
her time sitting before a

Place on Port St. Joe's Track
Team. Too, she was on the
first girl basketball team.
Besides that, she and Billy
Tapper won every Charles-
ton contest during the Roar-
ing Twenties in this area.
A member of the first
graduating class, Mrs.
Brown finished school in
1927.
There are many "firsts"
connected with the life of
Mrs. Brown. The "first"
closest to her heart is the fact
that she and Charles Andrew
Brown were the first couple
to be married in the St.
Joseph Church.
She recalls, "We were
married when Al Smith was
running for President, and
those Catholics didn't have
much hope in me. Thought

especially honored on their
50th Wedding Anniversary by
all of the Bishops in this area,
and received a special bles-
sing by Pope John Paul II

thodist Women for 64 years of
work and love in that organi-
zation. She says, "United
Methodist Women has been
an important factor in my
life. That's where I see my

great-grandfather's. Annette

register John was the first policeman
he first in Apalachicola during Re-
ctitious construction days, appointed
r which by the Federal government,
s. but continued to live on my
nurment grandfather's place.
"After he died, Nepsy
married again, but only
stayed with her new husband
itc 1112 three weeks; one morning we
looked up to find Nep in her
usual place as she announced
hat the that she'd come home to
iers of

meeting Nepsy woke up one morn-
ouse in ing paralyzed on one side.
lowing She was in bed for several
14,1984,
february years. My grandmother, a
widow and a great deal
ed par- younger than Nep, moved
ill be her cot into Nepsy's room,
INERS, and slept there and attended
her until Nep died.
Nepsy wasn't like a mem-
112 ber of our family; she was a
member of our family, and


we few who are left remem-
ber her with love and affec-
tion, even if I do still believe
in "'moon spells."
Another recollectionworth
repeating in its entirety is the
following: "One of the most
memorable events in my life
was a "wet and dry" election
in Franklin County. My mo-
ther and father had moved
from Apalachicola to Carra-
belle where he and his
brother, Lynn Kilbourn, built
an ice factory, a seafood
place, and a store- more
like a commissary. They
went to Gloucester, Massa-
chusetts, and picked out five
schooners and full crews for
them to go snapper fishing on
the Snapper Banks, some-
times as far as Campeche,
Mexico, staying out five or
six weeks at a time. The
fishing crews were good men
and good sailors who had no
families, so their main enter-
tainment when they were 'in
port was to get drunk. They
would still be inebriated
when it was time for the
boats to go out again. Ice and
groceries enough on the
boats for a six week's stay
were going to waste.
"My father and his brother
decided it was time to vote
the county dry. The barroom
,keeper was a rotund, red-
faced man who looked as if
he was always in the Battle of
the Bulge so that his heavy
gold watch chain would meet
across. He lived in the nicest
house in Carrabelle, and
probably was the most pros-
perous citizen. He wasn't
about to let his business go
down the drain without a
fight, so the day before
election day, he invited a
"wet" senator from Talla-
hassee to come down to
speak. I remember that the
senator was as red-faced as
the barroom keeper.
"My mother, a graduate of
the Atlanta Conservatory of
Music, was the organist of
the Methodist Church. The
organ was a small one,
pumped with the feet. Early
oh.election day, a mule and a
wagon pulled up to the
church, and my father and
uncle hauled the organ to the
polls.
"Every time the senator
would find a box on which to
speak, my father and his
brother would move the
organ next to it. She could
play in the dark, and mo-
ther's sisters, Bly Pickett
Garnand and Gem Pickett,


would sing. They kept that up
for two days and into the
night. The Carrabelle people
turned out in such force that
*the whole county was voted
dry.
"The last I saw of the
Senator, he was sitting on the
barroom steps with his head
in his hands waiting for the
train back to Tallahassee.
"All this took place before
the 18th Amendment, and the
effort was a success, but
although my father voted for
and believed in the 18th
Amendment, he came to the
conclusion that it was a
drastic mistake, because of
racketeers such as Al Capone
and Baby Face Floyd taking
over the country. He was in
full agreement when it was
repealed."
Mrs. Ida Ethel Brown is a
very exciting person who has
touched hundreds of lives.
Her sincere interest in peo-
ple, her keen sense of humor,
and her daily celebration of
life make her special.
"I've enjoyed living" she
says, "and the worst thing
anyone can say about me is,
'Poor old thing- she was a
good woman, and she meant
well.' I don't ever want any
slow marching or sad sing-
ing. I've told my children
that when they do anyth
with me to put me min a
Methodist Home. My Baptist
son-in-law says, 'No, Mama,
I don't have much going for
the Methodists, but I can't do
that to them.' "
Senator Tapper say's, "Ida
Ethel has done more for the
youth of this community than
anyone else."!'
By doing so much for Gulf
County's young people and
others, Ida Ethel Brown has,
indeed, become a legend in
her own time.

Time for Pecan Tree Maintenance


BY ROY LEE CARTER
-.County Extension Director
: The pecan tree can be
:grown throughout Florida,
'but the best commercial
-production is from Ocala
:-north. Dooryard trees are
.found as far south as Dade
-County, but generally speak-
ing, as one moves further
south, production decreases.
Before planting trees, you
should first select the appro-
priate varieties. While there
are many varieties avail-
able, only the following va-
rieties are recommended for
backyard planting. They
are: Stuart, Desirable, El-


liott, Curtis, and Morland.
This is because most home-
owners do not have the
necessary equipment to
spray for the control of
destructive diseases, parti-
cularly scab.
Many pecan trees may be
unfruitful unless they receive
pollen from another tree.
Plant at least two varieties,
especially in areas where few
trees exist, to provide suffi-
cient pollen.
Purchase your trees from a
reputable nursery or garden
center. Make sure that the
transplant's roots have been
kept moist from the time of


digging until planting. If
possible, plant your trees the
day they are obtained from
the nursery. Many trees are
purchased through mail or-
der firms and garden cen-
ters, and may have been out
of the ground for several
days. However, if they have
been stored and handled with


proper care, they should
survive.
Drying before planting is
one of the major causes of the
tree's failure to thrive and
grow. If the roots of your
trees have dried out, soak
them in water for several
hours to freshen them.
Be sure and place trees

Narrow Escape

Bucky Richter, Wildlife Officer, came within an inch of
being bitten by this huge rattler in Ed Ball Reserve last
Friday afternoon. Richter and Guy White were in the
Reserve hunting when Richter had the snake draw back to
strike him. Richter jumped and shot at the snake with a
rifle. White finished the monster off with his shotgun. The
snake was as large as Richter's leg. It was five feet and
seven inches long and had 11 rattles and a button. ..

away from residences, other
buildings and overhead pow-
er lines to allow plenty of
room for development and
growth.
Remove broken roots be-
fore setting trees. Dig a hole
deep enough to accommo-
date the root system without
bending it. Because of the
pecan's long tap root, it is not
unusual for a hole to be at
least three feet deep, and
from 12 to 24 inches wide.
Place enough topsoil in the
bottom of the hole so that the
tree stands at the same depth
or a little deeper than it was
in the nursery. Mix organic
matter with the remaining
topsoil and add it in the hole
in layers so that lateral roots
can be spread horizontally.
Firm each layer of soil after.
it is added to prevent set-
tling. Never add fertilizer in
the planting hole, it may
damage the root system.
Build a water holding basin
around the tree from leftover
subsoil. The reservoir should
be 24 to 36 inches deep, and
hold 10 to 15 gallons of water.
Apply a six inch mulch of
straw, leaves or old sawdust
to help conserve moisture
and reduce weed and grass
competition.
It is important to prune one


half of the top of the new tree
immediately after trans-
planting to bring top growth
in balance with the root
system.
Young trees require more
attention than older estab-
lished trees. Watering is the
major chore for the first two
or three years. Make sure
trees receive 10 to 15 gallons
of water at regular weekly
intervals, either by rainfall
or irrigation.
If you did not have your soil
tested, use a general rite
fertilizer such as 10-10-10.
Distribute in a circle around
the tree immediately after
planting, and again in June
or July. The following Febru-
ary, apply four lbs. of 10-10-10
for each inch of trunk dia-

THE GOOD THAT MEN DO
|LIVES BEYOND THEM
The donation of an organ, such as a kidney or an eye
is a prime example of man doing continuing good.
Actually it is the last chance for someone to do some-
thing for his fellow man. Organ donation knows no
economic harriers. It is the great common denomina-
tor. Whether a man he prince or pauper he can make
the same wonderful gift. and in doing so a part of him
endures.
At this time of year when the spirit of giving is so
much in our minds, consider making out a donor c'rd
or adding it to your will. The more donors the greater
the opportunity for matching ideal donors and thus
more chance for success.

these compresses, hot

oen the blood vessels in

this for at least two to

Then massage the

Q. Can tired eyes be

A. It sometimes helps to look
at distant objects now and

work. Look out the win-
dow, at a distant wall
dock, or at a soothing
painting.
Tired eyes are normal oncd

most of the time, you may
need to have your prescrip-

Tampa on January 13.
The Waterfowl Advisory
Committee will review the
181 entries submitted in this
year's duck stamp contest
and will select at least three
designs for final judging by
the Commissioners and the
executive director. The de-

for the design and artwork
services required to produce
each year's waterfowl
stamp. The agency then
retains all reproduction

Rescue Six

Turtles
Rangers at St. Joseph State
Park have found six turtles in
Eagle Harbor, either frozen
to death or about to die due to
last week's cold weather.
There were three Logger-
heads (threatened list): one
dead; and two barely-alive.-
The other three were endan-.
gered Green Turtles: one
was found dead; and two
alive.
The cold weather has drop-
ped water temperatures
enough to stun these cold-
blooded animals. The four
turtles that were found alive
are now in captivity and are
doing well. These turtles will
be tagged and released into
deeper water.
The Florida Department of
Natural Resources now has a
Toll Free Resource Alert
Hotline that can be used to
report stranded turtles, as
well as any other problems
relating to the environment.
This number is 1-800-342-1821.

Plai


than sloping, you will have
plenty of loose earth to work
with. Mix one part soil
amendment with every two
parts of the soil you plan to
use in setting your plant.
Then, place about six inches
of the amended soil back in
the hole. Pack the added soil
down fairly well, so the plant
doesn't settle after it's set.
Next, stand the plant up-
right in the center of the hole
and turn it so that its best
side is most visible. Make
sure there's plenty of room
for the roots. When working
with a bare root plant, make
a cone shaped -mound of soil
in the bottom of the hole and
arrange the roots around it.
They should be spread na-
turally, not cramped or twist-
ed. For a balled and burlap-
ped or container grown plant,
handle the soil ball gently,
being careful not to break it.
Make sure you place the
plant at the right level in the
soil. Planting too shallow can
cause the- roots to dry out.
But planting too deep can
suffocate roots, and cause
the base of the trunk to rot.
On bare root plants, you can
usually tell what the right
level is, because there's a
color change where the base
of the trunk meets the soil
line. With balled and burlap-
ped or container grown


'rees, Shrubs


citing T
plants, line up the top of the
soil ball with the soil surface.
Don't try to remove the
burlap on a ball and-burlap-
ped plant. Simply roll the
material down away from
the soil ball, and it will decay
naturally. Container grown
plants usually are sold in
metal cans, which must be
carefully cut away and dis-
carded before planting.
After your plant is set,
you're ready to fill up the rest
of the hole with amended soil.
Fill the hole three-fourths
full, keeping the plant in an
upright position, water thor-
oughly. After the water set-
tles, fill the rest of the hole
with more amended soil and
water again. Finally, make a
rim of soil a few inches high
and two or three feet away
from the plant's trunk. This
saucer shaped basin will help
hold water and direct it to the
roots of the plants.
Plants need special care
after setting in order to
develop a strong root system.
It takes a few months for a
plant to become well-rooted.
During this period of proot
development, the plant needs
careful and frequent water-
ing. You should water thor-
oughly, so water moves down
well into the root zone.
Shallow watering encourages
shallow root growth and


removed, prune the branches
one at a time, so you can be
sure you're shortening the
plant about the same all
over. Balled and burlapped
and container grotri plants
usually do not need such
trimming.
By following proper plant-
ing practices with good cul-
tural care, you'can get 'new
landscape plants off to the
best possible start.

makes the plant more vulner-
able to drought stress. How-
ever, overwatering is bad,
too, because it can cause the
roots to drown. The idea is to
keep the soil moist, but not
saturated. Once the plant is
well-established, you can wa-
ter normally.
Mulches are important for
new shrubs, because they
help conserve moisture, in-
sulate- the soil and add
organic matter. Several ma-
terials are suitable for mul-
ching. Pine needles, bark
nuggets and wood chips
make good organic mulches
for ornamental plants. A two
or three inch layer of mulch
usually is about right. When
mulching, be sure you keep
the materials a few inches
away from the plant's trunk.
If the mulch is too close, it
can cause trunk rot.
Bare root trees and shrubs
often need pruning immedi-
ately after planting. This is
because the exposed roots
are damaged slightly in
packing and shipping, and
the plants can't take up
water as well as they should.
Pruning off some of the top
portion of a plant will reduce
its need for water, by estab-
lishing a balanced relation-
ship between foliage and
roots. Usually, about one-
third of a plant's top can be
