County Commission to bring a central
water system to the area, in a
community meeting Thursday night
of last week.
The county has arranged for a
grant and loan agreement with the
Farmers Home Administration to
provide the $1.2 million' financing
required to put in the system, which
will pipe treated water from the City
of Port St. Joe treatment plant for
distribution at the beaches.
The system will also furnish
a treated water supply to Highland
View, to replace their ailing water
treatment plant. Highland View,
which already has its own w er
distribution system, will pay Tfor
installation of the service to their
area. The Highland View treat-
ment plant has fallen into dis-re-


About 75 residents of the beaches
were on hand at the public meeting, to
express their support of the system
and have questions answered by the
Commission, the engineers of the
system and a former Farmers Home
representative which the county has
helping with the plafining of the new
distribution system.
County attorney William' J. Rish,
who has been handling the legal work
for the planning phase of the project,
-said that about 275 customers have
signed up and paid their $75.00
deposits to receive the water service.
"We need about 349 customers to
make the system really fly", Rish
said.
Officials with the county told
residents of the Beaches Tuesday that
a minimum water bill would run


reduced", Rish said. Approximately
$6.00 of the billing is to pay the bonds
on the borrowed $500,000 used to
finance the project.
The only question raised which'
caused any controversy at all last
Thursday night was a question from
Bill Crawford, who questioned the
firmness of the price of bulk water
quoted by the City of Port St. Joe for
the system.
Crawford asked if the price of
water would possibly go up within
three or four years or was the quoted
price good for the foreseeable future.
Crawford was told the price quoted
was good for some time, barring
circumstances beyond the City's
control which may cause production

County crews begin work on a fence behind the jail
to provide an exercise yard and a containment area for
prisoners, at the direction of the state's Department of


Corrections who have ruled that extensive changes be
made at the jail or the county will face charges.


Renovation Nearly Complete


Work was well under way this week on construction
of an exercise and containment yard for prisoners in the
Gulf County Jail, as part of a $15,000 renovation project
which has been ordered by the state's Department of
Corrections. The DOC had ordered several changes in
the jail and its physical appertenances, or the county
will face the prospect of either being sued by the state of
Florida, or forced to shut the 15-year-old jail down.
Two projects have been completed already, with at
least three others underway and one awaiting a price
from a supplier before work can begin.
Cell block egress doors have been installed to lessen
the possibility that prisoners might be trapped inside the
cells in the case of a fire. DOC inspectors said the one
door in and out of the cells wasn't sufficient to give a
measure of safety to the prisoners.
An emergency lighting system has also been
installed, which will come in case of a power failure.
DOC has given a dark stare at the possibility that
prisoners may be left in the locked cells, in the dark,


Repairing



Crossings

Work crews from the Department of Transportation
went to work in the City of Port St. Joe this week, repairing
the railroad crossings on Highway 98.
After several months of prodding, the DOT is going to
work on repairs for the last of the rough crossings inside the
city limits. They repaired the crossing over Highway 71
near the courthouse at the end of last year.
According to a DOT spokesman, the delay with
repairing the Highway 98 crossing was because it was a
project which would take the cooperation of the
Apalachicola Northern Railroad, as well as the DOT.
A spokesman from the Chipley office of DOT said one of
the problems with the Highway 98 crossing is that the
tracks are too low. Over a period of years, resurfacing of
the highway plus asphalt placed in an attempt at smoothing
the crossing, has caused the rails to be considerably lower
than the road surface. "This has contributed to the
roughness", the DOT man said.
The AN Railroad can now put their road crews onto the
crossing work and, along with DOT, started work on the
first crossing Monday of this week.
Railroad crossings have been a point of polite
discussion between the City Commission of Port St. Joe and
the DOT for many months. The recent repairs to crossings
in the Panama City area intensified the negotiations to get
them repaired.


should there be a power failure. The emergency system,
is composed of battery-powered lights placed at
strategic places in the cell block, which will come on
automatically should the power go off.
The Department has ruled that additional outside
doors be installed, and the doors are now on order.
According to the county building inspector, the doors
were scheduled to be delivered January 15, but have not
arrived as yet.
Wiring for an audio system has been put in place and
now await the arrival of an amplifier and speaker to be
installed: The system will allow the jailer to have voice
contact with the prisoners at all times.
The fence will provide the exercise yard to allow the
prisoners to go outside for exercise and also provide a
protective area around the outside of. the building. The
fence should be completely installed by next week.
Still to be installed is a fire extinguisher system for
the kitchen which would be set off by sensors in case of a
fire. This system is said to cost around $1,000 but has not
been ordered as yet.


Workmen set out Monday morning on the project of
repairing railroad crossings inside the City of Port St. Joe

Board Approves Trade with St. Joe Paper


The County Commission
agreed to a land swap with
St. Joe Paper Company,
Tuesday night, to get a
location for the county's new
solid waste compaction sta-
tion.
The county will build the
compaction station here in
the southern end of the
county in a joint venture with
the City of Port St. Joe, in an
effort to comply with landfill


and disposal guidelines of the
Department of Environmen-
tal Regulation. The Depart-
ment has told the county the
present landfill operation in
southern Gulf county does
not meet state requirements
and has ordered it closed
down. The DER has refused
to give a permit for another
landfill in south Gulf, saying
the natural contour of the
land has too high a water


Sharks Entering Gulf

Conference Tourney


Port St. Joe's Sharks will
be entering the Gulf Coast
Conference tournament this
week end, taking a sparkling
15-1 record to Tallahassee to
put on the line.
Four teams will be inyolv-
ed in the three nights of play:
Port St. Joe, Wakulla, Hava-
na and Perry competing for
conference honors. Perry is
replacing Blountstown, who
has dropped out of the
conference.


Port St. Joe's first compe-
tition will be on Friday night,
when they meet the Havana
Gladiators at 7:00 p.m.
Other games, leading up to
the championship game Sat-
urday night, will be Wakulla
and Florida High on Thurs-

landfill operation practices.
The Commission authoriz-
ed chairman Owens to pro-
ceed with negotiations to
swap an old sand pit at White
City to SJPC for a site on
Industrial Road near the
Florida Power Corporation
transmission lines. The site
will be used for the constru-
tion of a compactor transfer
station, to collect solid waste
from south Gulf and prepare
it for trucking to the county's
only acceptable landfill at
Buckhorn in northern Gulf
County.
Owens says his first step is
to see if the land offered the
county is acceptable to DER
as a compactor and transfer
site before proceeding with
negotiations for the swap
deal.
The county has a six acre
site at White City they will be
attempting to swap SJPC for
5.3 acres on Industrial Road.

said he recommends cutting
down some of the palm trees
growing only a few feet from
the road, "because of the
number of serious accidents
we have had in this area over
the past several years"
Branch said.
Two men were killed in..a.
wreck with one of the trees
earlier this month.
Commissioner Eldridge
Money suggested the trees be
moved to the courthouse and
re-planted.
Branch countered that the :
trees which need taking down -
were so close to the road that
the road and shoulder would
suffer extensive damage if
the trees were removed in a
manner for re-planting.
"I recommend sawing
them off at the ground and
take the heat which comes
with it", Branch said.: He
pointed out that not many of
the trees would have to be
taken down. "Nobody;. will
probably ever miss them",
he said. "There are plenty
more trees there".

Grove System

Port St. Joe City Clerk, Alden Farris sent the Gulf--'
County Commission a list of unpaid water customers in the
Oak Grove system this week, stating these customers'had
been cut off from service by the system, due to
non-payment of the bills. In the even three dozen unpaid
accounts, the amounts range from a low of $3.91 for one bill
to $360.91 for the highest.
Commission chairman Everett Owens was alarmed at
the list Tuesday night, when his Commission inspected the
list and recommended the county take steps to collect them.
Owens asked for a definition of the policy which
resulted in the suspension of service to cutocustomers for
non-payment. "How long are they are allowed to go without
paying?" he asked.
Wednesday, Farris stated the Oak Grove customers are
treated just like customers in the City( if they don't pay by
the 15th of the month following billing, they are cut off."
Farris said the list sent to the County seemed to be
alarming, with 36 customers cut off from the small system.
"That represents all the customers who have been cut off
since the system was first installed", he said. "The list was
to inform the county how much money was owed the system
from past experience, rather than reflect this month's
non-pays", Farris said.
So, the Oak Grove system isn't doing so bad after all.

The Funeral

I BY SHAD PHANTRY


I have always thought that
I would live forever. I now
find that is just isn't so, and
it's about to worry me. to
death.
Middle age is a terrible
time in a person's life. I have
done extensive research on
the trauma of "middle age"
and have learned that I am
not alone. That, however,
has not lessened the anguish.
My fears grow with each
passing day.
Recently I attended the
funeral of an elderly aunt.
The preacher was telling us
about all the good things the
person had done, and how
untimely the death was, and
how we would all miss the
deceased. The person in the
casket was about ninety
years old.
I couldn't help but notice
the anguish on the faces of
the family and friends
gathered in the church. The
person was indeed missed!
Was the death untimely,
though? I thought about that
one for quite some time.
I soon realized that the
preacher was right. Any
death is untimely. No matter
how sick or injured a person
may be, no one is ready for
the final curtain. And death
is very final.
Death is as certain as in-
come taxes. There has never
been anyone to escape pay-
ing income taxes, and, to my
knowledge, no one has ever
escaped the '.'grim-reaper".
And it doesn't matter how
good or evil they were.
Nothing really matters when
it comes time to play hole
No. 19. We will all tee it up,
one day.
That's the one thing that I
haven't been able to come~to.
grips with. Why must people'
die? More than that, why

DUI Emphasis
Arrests 19,723
Florida Highway Patrol
Director Colonel Bobby R.
Burkett has announced that
Highway Patrol Troopers ar-
rested 19,723 persons for the
offense of driving under the
influence of alcohol or drugs
during 1983. This figure
represents a 77 percent in-
crease over the 1982 figures
of 11,169.
Colonel Burkett stated
"We are encouraged about
these results which reflect
the efforts being put forth by
our Troopers. However, the
impaired driver continues to
be the leading cause of fatal
accidents. Therefore we will
not only continue our present
efforts, but will itensify our
effort even more."


must I die? If I was a
murderer I might see some
justification in my death. I
am not a murderer and, for
that matter, neither was the
person that was buried to-
day. Just because that per-
son was ninety years old is
no reason to die, in my opi-


union. She's dead, though,
just as you and I will be one
day.
.It was a beautiful funeral.
The casket was a bronze,
metallic color and flowers
were lined around it, as well
as the altar and the walls of
the church. The body inside


the casket, however, knew
nothing of the homage that
was displayed that day. At
least, I don't think it did.
Maybe the spirit did, but
what good did it do? There
was certainly no way the
person could convey their
thanks for the concern and
grief that was shown. I think
that I will write a "thank
you" note in advance for the
few people who might show
up for my funeral.
I wondered about other
things after that funeral to-
day. How many people, I
wondered, were there
because they wanted to be?
If most people are like me
(and they probably are not)

they certainly don't like to
attend funerals or weddings.
I almost missed my own
wedding. My wife probably
wishes I had.
I wouldn't want anyone to
come to my funeral if they
had something better to do,
like play a round of golf or go
to a football game. Let's face
it, those guys I play golf with
would never forgive me if
they missed a round because
I had to "kick the bucket!"
Don't come, fellas. And I
hope you hook one in the
rough and get an unplayable
lie, just like I do so often.
There's nothing like a
funeral to start me doing
some serious thinking!


When You

jHAD A GOOD week last week. It
was one of those weeks when
everything goes right; in which
everything almost seems to happen
just for our benefit.
SIn might have known it was going
to be a good week when I finally got
out of bed Monday morning. Getting
outof bed in the morning-is always a
monumental chore for me .
e eeially on a cold morning. Since
Flenchie and I don't have kids at
home anymore, we don't let the
heater run as hot during the night as
wg did when the kids were home. So,
getting up on a cold morning, usually
nreans uncovering from a toasty bed
aid into the chilly air.
SThis past Monday morning, I just
wqke right up and knew where I was
what my name was almost from
tl. very start.
SI staggered into the bathroom to
slaveand brush my teeth. I use one of
those charge-up shavers to shave
w]th. I plug it in and charge it up once
aeek to use all week long. Usually, I
forget to charge it up again until it
rtns all the way down and this in-


Have A Good Week You Savour It for All It's Worth!


variably happens right in the middle
of the shaving operation.
Monday, I splashed Lectric Shave
on my face and turned on the shaver.
About the time I got to my left jowl,


for the week. There was even a clean
pair of shorts and a pair of socks
without a hole in the toe to round out
the supply of clean unmentionables.
Next, it was to breakfast, and my


$1,200 for it.
$1,200 for a bike!
About the time she was to say,
"Pay the man", I woke up. It's a good
thing, too, because I don't carry $1,200


in my old station wagon because it
had more room in it. George's car was
too small and Cecil's was sick and old.
George told me, right out, "You'll
have to clean that car out and wash it.
I don't like to go anywhere in a dirty
car."
You know what happened
Wednesday afternoon. When the rain
started pouring down, I just parked
the car outside and in just a few
minutes, the car was washed. Had it
not been for the rain, it might have
waited until Spring before it got wash-
ed. My luck was still holding, strong.

I CAN'T SAY THE same about
the luck of the post office. Things
didn't go so well for it.
George Tapper came into the
back room where I was working and
pulled up a stool. He showed me a
Christmas card he had received from
Mrs. Pearl Brown, who now lives over
near Augusta, Ga., I think.
The card had been mailed
sometime around the first of
December and arrived on Friday,
January 13.


It's a little hard getting to Port St.
Joe. You have to aim your vehicle to
Port St. Joe in order to get here. You
don't just pass through, on your way
to or from anyplace.
The Christmas card took the long
way around, getting here.
First, it was postmarked on
December 11 at Florence, S.C. Then it
had a Hampton Roads, Va., postmark
on December 14. It was headed in the
wrong direction to get to Port St. Joe.
Later, on December 20, it was
postmarked in Fort Pierce; finally in
Florida, but still headed in the wrong
direction.
The next day, December 21, the
letter, was in two places. It was
postmarked in Jensen Beach and
West Palm Beach. Then on December
27, the card was postmarked in West
Palm again.
On January 6, it had made it to
Jacksonville. Still a long way from
Port St. Joe but headed in the right
direction finally.
Seven days later the card was
delivered to George after taking the
long scenic route.


the shaver played out. The charge un-
charged. I knew the day would go
well, because I was through shaving
before the shaver ran out of juice.
That was a good start'
TUESDAY STARTED OFF just
as good. I opened my underwear
drawer to get a clean undershirt for
the day, and, lo and behold, there was
just one left. That was all I needed for
the day, so my luck was still holding

stuff which is good for you.
Wednesday, as I was about to
start the day, I was awakened from
my slumber by Frenchie just as I was
getting to the bad part of a dream..
I was dreaming that Frenchie
was about to buy a new 10-soeed bicy-
cle and she was going to pay the guy


around in my pocket. As a matter of
fact, I don't carry $1,200 in my bank
account. especially for a bicycle.
My luck was still holding. I
awakened before I had to go through
the agony of paying out that $1,200.
It was still a perfect week.

wives on Saturday. We decided to go

nation" Superintendent of
Schools Walter Wilder stated
in an address to the Kiwanis
Club Tuesday.
In explaining Gulf's part in
the new -state education
program of becoming "excel-
lent", Wilder said, "Gulf
County will not have to make
all that many curriculum
changes to comply with the
new state requirements".
Beginning with school year
1986-87, students will need 24
credits to graduate and must.
maintain at least a 1.5 grade
average. Now, the state
requires a student to have 16
credits to graduate. Gulf
County requires 21.
Wilder said the big changes
are that:
-Students must have 22
credits by next year includ-
ing three in social studies,
three English, three mathe-
matics and three sciences. '
-Students must maintain
at least a 1.5 grade average
to participate in extra-cur-
ricular activities or gradu-
ate.
-The school day will be
increased to seven 50-minute
periods per day.
-There will be no GED
diplomas given ,to those less
than 18 years of age unless
the school board recom-
mends it in a specific in-
stance.
-Students entering college
by the 1986-87 school" year
must have two years, of a
foreign language.
Wilder said these are the
main points of change in the
strive for excellence.
Wilder said the new re-
quirements will mean sever-
al changes in Gulf County


schools.
The school day will be
lengthened by at least 20 to 25
minutes for the students next
year. The system will intro-
duce the third year of science
to meet the new state stan-
dards. One of these classes
must be a laboratory session.
Wilder said many of the
students are already becom-
ing concerned enough about
the new requirements to
start preparing themselves
already. He said Port St. Joe
High School is offering a
science class prior to and
after school to allow this


Most of the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife service bird man-
agement areas are in Flor-
ida, Martin Perry, manage-
ment officer for the St.
Vincent Island Refuge area
told the Rotary Club last
Thursday.
Perry said the St. Vincent
Island Refuge was a refuge
for bird life and animals long
before it became a part of the
Department of Interior Man-
agement Areas. The island's
former:owners kept a strict
Sreign on the island'for many
years and kept people off it.
Now, Perry says anyone
can come to the island to
picnic, look at nature, enjoy
the beaches, but not to hunt
unless they have a special
permit from his office.
Perry said the island was
purchased back before the
turn of the century by a Dr.
Pierce. He was the inventor
of the famed patent medi-
cines Dr. Pierce's Golden
Medical Discovery and he
developed the island and its
game for the enjoyment of
his friends.
"When his friends wanted
to hunt some game, they


year's junior class to gain
some on next year's re-
quirements if they want to.
He said more than 80 of a
junior class of some 115
students are taking the clas-
ses in the early and late
hours of the school day.
, Wilder predicted the new
requirements would see stu-
dents trying harder. He saw
the requirements as causing
greater accountability for
the- school, teachers and
students. "I also see more
students dropping out of
school before they earn a
diploma", the Superinten-
dent said.


would just turn them out of
the pens and hunt them";
Perry said. Even today, the
island's main attraction to
sportsmen is its boar hunt-
ing. A close second is the
attraction of its fresh water
lakes to fishermen.
St. Vincent is nine and a
half miles long and four
miles wide. It was acquired
by the Department of Inter-
ior in 1968 and now ranks
among one of the most
important in wildlife refuges
in Florida .
One reason for its impor-
tance is the presence of the
Sanbar deer on the island.
"We don't know how many
we have, or what their habits
are", Perry said. He pointed
out that a study is presently
under way to find out some-
thing about the habits of the
Sanbar which were brought
to St. Vincent from India by
Dr. Pierce about the turn of
the century. "They have
thrived on St. Vincent ever
since", Perry said.
St. Vincent has been an
attraction in the area) for
centuries. Indian mounds .on
the island testify to' the
popularity of the island and
its shellfish from as far back
as several thousand years
before Christ.
Guests -of the club were
Roger Soricelli and Jim
Greer, both of Port St.. Joe.

Principals Left
Out of Story

In last week's issue. of The
Star, the story concerning
the parade, honoring Dr.
Martin Luther King, failed to
mention that Port St. Joe's
High School band and the
NJROTC color guard also
marched in the parade Satur-
day.
The story was written from
information gathered by
those in charge of the parade
and they failed to give The
Star the information which
would give credit to the band
and marching units.
The Star regrets failing to
give credit to the units which
also were a part of the
celebration.

Editor On Sick List

Two weeks ago, Wewahitchka's Gulf County Breeze
editor, Ed Bandjough fell while operating his paper
cutter, fracturing three upper left ribs.
Although the paper has been open for business, his:,
healing has been slower than expected, hindering
production. However, Bandjough says he expects to
return to at least part time duty next week and will try td
get caught up with his responsibilities.
Bandjough says he knows his being laid up has '
caused others inconvenience as well as himself, "and'-
I'm sorry for it", he says.
About five years ago he fell from a casting machine
and broke his right wrist. "It looks like I'd learn after a-
while", he remarked.

heartfelt thanks to all our

A Shark L


After a fourth-quarter
comeback, ending their
game against Blountstown
at 73-67, the seemingly invin-
cible PSJ Boys' Basketball
Team chalked up another
win, adding to their
undefeated record last Fri-
day night. Nice goin'
Sharks!
The Sharks played
Apalachicola Monday night
of this week beating them by
a score of 76-60. They also
played Rutherford at home
Tuesday night.
The Sharks are having a
busy week as one can see,
but more is yet to come.
They will play in the Gulf
Coast Conference Tourna-
ment in Panama City and
Tallahassee 'this Thursday
through Saturday. The


outlook for a Shark dominion
is, needless to say,
SUPER!!! So everyone
show your support to your
team!
On that, I'd like to con-
gratulate Port St. Joe on
your never-ending support-
It does get noticed! I've
discovered that truth this
past week. I was told by
several of Gulf County's.
citizens of certain events
that have proved just how
much P.S.J.'s support really
means (and helps!) In one
instance of this, a
schoolteacher from Port St.
Joe High was in a Bay Coun-
ty dentist office when she
overheard a certain Bay
County cheerleader going on
about how tremendous is the
support which PSJ shows its


teams, exclaiming, "I think
they bring the whole town
with them when they come to
play us!"
If that isn't enough to be
proud of PSJ, what is? Way
to go- We at PSJ High real-
ly appreciate it!

Congratulations are in
order also for the Jr. High
Basketball teams on
defeating the Blountstown
Tigers last Thursday. The
7th grade won 28-24 and the
8th grade won 35-28. Way to
go guys!

Here is Lynn Aman's
poem that won in the club
division of the Purple
Pegasus Poetry Club's con-
test (congratulations again,
Lynn):


"THE SUNSET"
Golden orange and yellow.
Behind the gently swaying trees. Not knowing whether to stay or go.
Silent.... But...then...
Stin.... In a blink of an eye.
Reaching out... Gone...
To the heart. Never to be exactly the same
Like a person in love. again.
Uncertain. -By Lynn Aman

With all of this "Super
Record" bit going around, it
appears that PSJ's Junior
Varsity Basketball Team
likes that expression also.
They have, thus far, held on
to a GREAT RECORD
also!! Their next game is
scheduled for Jan. 31 against
Marianna at 7:00 in the PSJ
High gym. Good Luck,
fellows. Keep up the good
work.

The Key Club has
challenged the male faculty
members to a basketball
game during 6th period
Thursday. Tickets will be on
sale Wednesday and Thurs-
day before school and at
lunch. Admission is $1.00.
Proceeds from the game go
toward building a new
trophy case at the entrance
to the school, so come and
support your school.


Gospel Sing
The White City Assembly
of God Church will have a
Gospel Sing on January 29 at
2:30 P.M. EST. Dinner on the
grounds will proceed the
Sing.
Featured will be the
Southland Boys from

Rev. Charles E. Jackson
invites everyone to attend.

CONTACT LENSES
THAT "BREATHE"
Patients who have difficul-
ty seeing clearly with soft
contact lenses usually have
either a high degree of astig-
matism, or eyes that do not
tear enough.
Now there is a type of hard
contact lens that is more
comfortable and can be worn
for longer periods of time
than the traditional one. It is
a gas-permeable lens that
permits oxygen to pass
through it. Gas permeable
lenses are extremely thin
and have a percentage of
silicone, a gas-porous
plastic,- in them. The eyes
need a steady supply of ox-
ygen to remain comfortable.
Research has shown that
wearers of the newer
oxygen-permeable hard con-
tact lenses have fewer inci-
dents of redness, swelling
and sensitivity to light than
they had with their older
hard lenses, yet vision re-
mains clear and sharp. Even
when contacts are removed
and eyeglasses are put on,
there appears to be little
evidence of the after-blur
which sometimes occurred
with the older hard lenses.
Where soft lenses do not
give clear vision, the newer,
thinner, gas-permeable
lenses may be successful.

WANTS REPORT
At the last meeting\of 1983,
Lee Munroe of Gulf .Aire
Subdivision castigated build-
ing inspector Dewayne Man-
uel, charging him with in-
competency. Munroe was
back again at Tuesday
night's meeting, saying he
understood Manuel was to
make a report defending he
and his department and he
(Munroe) wanted a copy of
the report.
Manuel said he was work-
ing up a statement in reply to
Munroe's charges, as they
were serious allegations and
he felt they should be an-
swered in an official meeting
of the Commission.
Chairman Owens assured
Munroe he would be furnish-
ed a copy of the report as
soon as Manuel turned it in.
Conversation became a
little brittle between Munroe
and Owens at this time as
Munroe questioned just when
that "sometime" would be.
"Will it be next year, next
month, or when?"
Owens took the question to
mean the county was stalling
in the matter and replied,
"Whenever ... the report is
turned in, I'll personally see

meeting of the Board.

Last of Films
At FC School
Faith Christian School will
present the last two films of
a series entitled, "ORIGINS,
How the World Came to Be".
The films give a basic study
of the scientific case for the
Biblical view of creation.
Films five and six, each thir-
ty minutes in length, will be
shown'Tuesday, January 31
at 7 P.M. at Faith Bible
Church.
Film number five, "The
Origin of Mankind", ex-
plores the question, "Did
man evolve from ape-like
ancestors?" Then it ex-
amines evidence presented
by evolutionists for each of
the most important supposed
"missing links" in the
history of man. The presen-
tation reveals evidence the
totally, human man has ex-
isted from the beginning. -
Thecoincluding film, The
Fossil Record" asks the
question, "Do the Earth's
geological strata and fossils
prove Evolution- or do they
provide clear evidence of
Creation and a world-wide
-flood catastrophe?"
All are invited to see these
films which deal with two
important areas.

EMPHYSEMA IS
A MAJOR DISEASE
In the past ten years, deaths from emphysema have
increased seriously. The number of n.x emphy sema
Patients has more than doubled. In simple terms.
emphysema occurs when the walls of the lungs break
* down, the blood vessels and elastic tissue in the walls
disappear and the bronchial tubes become flabby andti
collapse. This obstructs the flow of air into and out of
the lungs causing labored breathing. It come, on very
slowly and at first there are no symptoms.
Although there is no cure, because you cannot
reverse tissue damage., there is treatment to hold down
I further deterioration. Breathing cleaner air, no S
smoking, medications, controlled breathing and
special devices such as nebulizers are part of the
overall treatment plan. If you have any trouble
]breathing see your doctor at once.

Sharks Are No Longer Undefeated

Fall to Rutherford Rams, 69-60, In Tuesday Night Game


All season long, the Sharks
have lived by their ability to
make the foul shots. This
ability has preserved a 15
game win streak for the
team, carrying them thus far
in the season without a single
defeat on their record.
Tuesday night, the SLarks
didn't make their foul shots.
They had 20 opportunities
and made only 10 of them.
They also lost their first
game of the season to Ruth-
erford High School of Pana-
ma City, a team they had
defeated previously in the
season. The score was 69-60.
"We are having trouble
maintaining our intensity",
Coach Jim Belin said. "We
are now playing teams we
have already beaten during
the season and it's hard to
come up to peak against
some of the teams after you
have'already beaten them".


Belin said, "I'm not mak-
ing excuses, but I couldn't
play Cadwell the whole
game. He has been sick all
week long and missed school.
When a regular is out of the
game, it upsets the team's
rhythm to a degree. We had
to hold Cadwell out for a good
portion of the game".
Belin says he feels losing
the game will take some of
the pressure off the team and
will possibly get their old
intensity back again.
"This isn't to take anything
away from Rutherford", he
said. "They are an excellent
team and they came ready to
play Tuesday night. We had a
good chance to win the game
but just couldn't pull it off".
Port St. Joe was never in
the lead Tuesday night. The
score was tied.in the second
quarter for a few brief
moments when Doug Robin-


son knotted the score at 26
points on a lay-up.
The Sharks pulled to within
three points with a minute
and a half left in the game,
but Mike Pittman and Robin-
son fouled out and the Rams
held on to win. Pittman had
been the spark for the Sharks
all night long, and he and
Robinson had been the back-
bone of the come-back surge
in the last period.
Pittman and Robinson
paced the Shark scoring wth
15 points each. Josh Jenkins
had 14 points for the Sharks.
Billy Hook was the leader
for the Rams with 26 points.
Score by quarters:
Port St. Joe 13 15 9 23--60

Food for


Pelicans
Pelicans in St. Joseph Bay suffered from the cold
weather which has lingered in the Panhandle ever since
Christmas, just as some of the humans did.
The pelicans have a friend in Fred Ward at
Simmons Bayou, who has been busy catching bait fish to
feed the birds, many of which have frost-bitten and
damaged feet.
Ward has been busy for the past few weeks
gathering the bait fish and feeding the pelicans, which
has attracted a large number of the birds to Ward's
Fishery at Simmons Bayou.
In the photo at top, several of the birds splash
around in the shallow water near Ward's dock, while
Ward sits beside a basket of food fish in the photo at left.

In a now-familiar role for
them this season, the Sharks
battled back in the last five
minutes of the game Friday

throwing cost the Tigers the
game and won for the
Sharks, even though the
Sharks were not at their

play kept the Sharks in

,Many Kinds of Fruit Can be Successfully Grown

Selection of Species Important for Growing Success In Various Sections of the State


BY ROY LEE CARTER
Conmity Extension Director
There are many kinds of
fruit which can be grown
successfully in Florida, in-
cluding temperate fruits in
the North and tropical or
subtropical fruits in the
South. Fruit growing is an in-
teresting and rewarding h6b-
by which provides fresh fruit
at the peak of its maturity.
Also, fruit plants are attrac-
tive additions to many land-
scape situations.
Selection of, species and
varieties is critical for fruit
production as plants which
are not adapted to local con-
ditions will generally fail to


mines where fruit crops can
be grown. Winters may be
too cold for some, too short
for others and still others
may suffer from summer
heat and humidity. Conse-
quently species and varieties
of fruits should be chosen on
the basis of historical
weather patterns.

Most fruit which originated
in the temperate zone go
through the winter in a dor-

period. Generally, this is
associated with short days,
cold weather and loss of
leaves. Exposure to winter
temperatures for a certain
length of time prepares the
plant to start active growth

again when temperatures
are more favorable for
growth.
Temperatures below 45
degrees F (7 degrees C) are
known as chilling
temperatures. The number
of hours below 45 degrees F
accumulate through th'e
winter months and con-
stitute total hours of chilling.
The Florida Panhandle rare-
ly has fewer than 500 hours
of chilling. Species and
varieties differ in the
amount of chilling they must
have in order to complete
rest and resume normal
growth, which is considered
the chilling requirements of
the species or variety.
A plant which does not
receive sufficient chilling to
satisfy rest is .usually
delayed in leafing out and
blooming. Often, the opening
of flowering and leaf buds


will be scattered over a long
period of time. Plants will
live only a very few years
with insufficient winter chill-
ing, which explains why so
few temperature fruits are
grown in South Florida. On
the other hand, rather cold
winters satisfy rest early so
that the plants start growing
with the first warm spell,
which makes them subject to
injury by later cold weather,
particularly late frosts,
which may destroy the
bloom or young fruit.
Cold Hardiness: Some
species and varieties are
quite cold hardy; others are
not. During the rest period,
temperate fruits can withs-
tand any temperature likely
to be experienced here.
Other species and varieties
would be seriously damaged
or killed outright by
temperatures which com-


only occur in Central and
North Florida. Bananas are
killed to the ground by frost.
Avocadoes are seriously
damaged by cold weather.
Most tropical fruits cannot
tolerate freezing
temperatures.
For the homeowner who
would like to grow some
deciduous fruits, please
select from the following
species and varieties:
Apple: Anna, Dorsett
Golden, Ein Shemer; Fig:
Alma, Brown Turkey,
Celeste, Magnolia;
Blueberry: Blue Belle,
Climax, Brite Blue, Alice
