Receives Gift of Property


Gulf County has been deed-
ed 42.48 acres of public land
for use as a county recrea-
-tional area, the U. S: Depart-
ment of the Interior's Bureau
of Land Management (BLM)
has announced. Located on
St. Joe's Spit, about twelve
miles south of Port St. Joe,
the parcel includes a quarter
mile of Gulf Coast Shoreline..
The transfer of the federal-
ly owned acreage to the
county followed application.
by the Board of Commission-
ers under the "Recreation,
and Public Purposes Act",
which provides for local
governments and non-profit.
organizations to receive pub-
lic lands for free, or at most a
nominal charge, if they plan
appropriate public .uses for
them.
Getting possession of the
property wasn't all that easy.
First application was made
some five or six years ago,
with the county unable to get
any answer from the gov-
ernment owners, This year,
after the job of securing the
property was turned over to a
citizen committee, it was
learned the description on
the property was in error and
this error had the govern-
ment confusing the property
with a parcel they wished to
keep.
The county has had to
come up with plans to use the


-I


area for a' public park. In
keeping with these plans, the
committee appointed to se-
cure the land has had the
Board change the county
plan to include the area in
which the property is located
as a recreational area and
get pledges from state agen-
cies to help with design and
building of a park on the
site.
"We're very pleased to
accomplish this transfer, be-
cause it will prove of, benefit
both to the county and to the
Federal Government," said
BLM Estern States Director'
G, Curtis Jones, Jr. "The
county will have a local
recreational area to augment.
the more regionally-oriented
T. H. Stone Memorial Park,
while BLM will have placed
in responsible hands a parcel
of public land that could be
more ,efficiently and eco-
nomically managed by local
government."
The property is located in
one of the fastest growing
beach front areas in this part
of Florida. "I'm glad we
could get the property before
it's all sold off", Commission
chairman Owens said.
Wayne Childers, chairman
of the land acquisition com-
mittee, said he has been
expecting the deed for the
property, "Just any day for


the past three months".
Finally, it came last week.
The tract is located at the
intersection of State Roads 30
and 30E. It contains a


mixture of sand dunes,
marsh, and wooded areas.
According to plans included
in the Board of Commis-
sioners' application, the


County Commissioner Eldridge Mone3,
land acquisition committee chairman,
Wayne Childers, committee member, Mrs.
Ida Ethel Brown and Commission Chairman

First Constitution Is-LocatedII


Document Signed In Old St. Joseph Missing Since 1847


One of the deepest mysteries to hit the state
of Florida and the St. Joseph Historical Society
has been, what happened to the original copy of
the first Constitution of the state of Florida?
The state's first constition, signed in the old
city of St. Joseph back in 1838, has been the
subject of an intense search for much of this
century, with no success. The only known copy of
the language contained in the first constitution
was a newspaper account of the document
printed by the St. Joseph Times back when the
original document was signed.
When a museum was built here in Port St.
Joe to commemorate the signing, the newspaper.
account was the basis for a replica of the first
Constition to be placed in the. museum.
The last known official reference to the first
Constitution was found in an 1847 record for the
purchase of "1 tin case for Constitution of
Florida". Neither the tin case nor the
constitution has ever been found.
Until now.


About 18 months ago, some crumbling and
faded documents were found in the home of
William Galphin, a former Nassau County
commissioner, who died in 1980. The papers were
found by workmen who were doing some
renovation work in the old house.
The papers were sent to the state Archives
Bureau since the documents were recognized as.
old state records.
The original .copy of the state's first
constitution was found among the documents.
According to Edward Tribble, chief of the
Archives Bureau, "That is the only handwritten
copy we've ever seen".
The first of six constitutions which have
served Florida, the original document was
written before Florida became a state and
served as the territorial and then the state
constitution until 1861 when Florida seceeded
from the Union and adopted a new document.
How the document got from the convention
in St. Joseph to the attic in Fernandina Beach is


almost as much of a mystery as the whereabouts
of the constitution has been for all these years.
The old constitution is presently being
laminated by state Archives workers to keep it
from crumbling away. The first of the
seven-page copy went orf display this month in
the Old Capitol as part of a new permanent
exhibit on Florida's six constitutions.
The St.' Joseph Historical Society is also
gearing up to make a strong appeal to have the
constitution brought here to Port St. Joe and
placed in the Constitution Museum. "Here is
where it belongs", said Wayne Childers,
president of the Historical Society.
The Historical Society will meet some stiff
competition in their bid to have the constitution
copy sent here. The state Museum of Florida
History has already started negotiations with the
Fernandina Beach museum for the transfer of
ownership. The Fernandina Beach Museum is
present owner of the old papers.


Board Wants to Cut Holes In Lakes' Dam


Looking on are, Mrs. Charlie Mae King, left
Mayor Proclaims Black and James Dumas, right. The proclamation
Ct *recoginzes that Black people have made an
History Month for City important contribution toward better rela-
tions on the part of all Americans. Black
Mayor Frank Pate is shown signing a History Month has been observed since 1926
proclamation, proclaiming February as and includes the birthdays of Abraham

The March Presidential
preference ballot will have
two questions on it pertaining
to the future of the Dead
Lakes if three members of
the Dead Lakes Management
Board have their way in the
matter.
Meeting Thursday of last
week in Wewahitchka, mem-
bers Forest Revell, Harland
Pridgeoh and William Linton
voted to petition both Gulf
and Calhoun County com-
missions to include a ques-
tion on the ballot which would
ask the question: "If fish and
conservation problems can
be resolved without removal
of the Dead Lakes dam,
should the entire Dead Lakes
dam be removed?"
A question has already
been approved for the ballot
in both counties which asks
whether or not the people of
both counties favnr removal
of the dam.
To get this resolve of fish
and conservation problems,
the three Management Board
members approved a plan
at their meeting and voted to
file for permission to cut
holes in the dam to allow for
water drawdown in the
Lakes.
The plan calls for the
Board to authorize cutting
four holes in the dam itself,
four feet by eight feet,


located two feet above the
bottom of the Dead Lakes
reservoir. This would allow
water to pass through the
dam and draw the lake level
down farther than the exist-
ing draw-down structure will
allow.
The Management Board is
now preparing applications
to submit to the state of


Florida asking for permis-
sion to cut the holes.
Harland Pridgeon, a mem-
ber of the Board first came
up with the hole-cutting idea
back in the summer.
A cost estimate of some
$20,000 has been made to cut
the four holes, which prob-
ably wouldn't be done until
some time in the spring or


early summer, provided per-
mission could be acquired by '
that time.
In the meantime, the
Board has taken the position
that they will not remove the
dam even if the people of'
both Gulf and Calhoun coun-
ties vote their decision to
take it out.
The three members say


they think the modification
plan will meet the desires of
the people to have the lakes'
fluctuate more like a natural
flow.
Calhoun county members,'
Dr. Raymond Layne and.
Tommy Williams, were not
present at last week's meet--
ing. Both are proponents of;
removing the dam.

Interesting


If it's news to you when we
--inform you here that this is an
- election year, then all we can say
:'Js, where have you been hiding?
On top of electing a president
:6f the United States, several
: Senators and all our Congressmen
-several state officers and half our
local county governing officials, we
Eave two matters which will
probably cause quite a furor before
,-he year is over.
E One question sure to make it on
3be ballot in November will be the
EProposition 1 we have been hearing
,nurmurs about and which is-
beginning to increase in volume as
:E'he year progresses. One area
;"ditor has already come out in
favorr of passage of the Proposition
,,which would curtail the taxing
,power of our governments. Bill
EPhillips has sort of given the
=proposition a left-handed endorse-
nent though we have not seen a
-,.efinite "I'm in favor of its
.passage" type of approval in
E=iis newspaper, The Wakulla News.
-l Proposition 1 is quite a bill. It
would cut the tax revenue back to
fle 1980 level to try to deal with 1984
prices for services and goods. That
Hardly sounds feasible.
z Phillips-admits that passage of
l Proposition 1 would play havoc

slate. Although the school budgets
are no sacred cow, they could
" hardly stand a 20 percent cut of



iPresident Ge


with Prayc
Contemplating 'oii the Presi-
dent's state of the union address for
just a few lines here, it was easy to
detect which of the President's
points drew the most applause,
didring his hour-long speech.
While the budgetary matters,
the nations posture over the world
ini military matters and our con-
cern over foreign policy take the
forefront in our nation's worries,
they took a back seat for just a few
moments during President Rea-
gan's remark concerning placing
the permission to pray back in the
hands of public schools once again.
We wouldn't revoke the Su-
preme Court's interpretation which
was merely that no state or school
district would require the students
to participate in a prayer authored


Year


income here in Gulf County. Since
Proposition 1 calls for roughly a 20
percent cut of all tax income, it
would affect Gulf's school budget in
just that manner and to that extent.
It would mean reducing Gulf's
school budget by $1 million.
That's quite a lick. too
much, we think, for our schools.
Phillips also states that waste
of public money is the big problem,
and he's absolutely right. The
trouble is that in a county the size
of Gulf (and Wakulla) it's kind of
hard to fool the people with a 20
percent waste. We just don't have
it.
Another question which will get
plenty of play but might not get on
the ballot is the faint rumblings of
reducing the Florida Legislature to
only one house rather, than the
present two.
Guy Middleton, formerly of
Port St. Joe and now editor of the
Holmes County Advertiser, quip-
ped in last week's paper, "If twice
as much is twice as good, would
half a Legislature be half as
good"?
Just you wait, Guy. Before too
much longer passes ad before the
question is tossed around to any
greater extent, someone will come
up with the question, "If twice as
much is twice as bad, is half a
Legislature going to be only half as
bad?"
It should be an interesting
year.



>ts Applause


,r Remark
by the government' agency.
We agree with the President's
concern over the mistaken way
most school districts have inter-
preted the Court's ruling as mean-
ing there can be no prayer in
classrooms.
It would be-and is-just as
much a usurpation of a person's
rights to tell him he can't pray as it
might be to insist that a person
pray.
The President said, with telling
emphasis, "If this body can stand
and hear prayer uttered .before
each and every session, it can't be
too wrong for children in school to
exercise the same privilege".
The statement drew the longest
interruption for applause of any
statement made by the president
during his speech.


Most people thirty-five or
younger don't remember the
Everly Brothers. They are
two brothers that were ex-
tremely popular during the
1950's. They were singers of
songs. Singers of love songs.
They were a very talented
and successful duo, and I was
a devoted fan. '
Recently, while on a busi-
ness trip, I checked into the
motel, and was. pleased to
find that the TV was wired
for HBO. I immediately
checked the schedule to see if
there were any. sexy movies
on that particular night.,
There were no such movies
listed. The schedule did
reveal, however, that there
was a Special on, and it was
the first concert the Everly
Brothers had done in some
twenty-five years. In fact, it
was the first time they had
appeared together in that
many years. They had had a
disagreement of some sort.
I was delighted and curious
to see what they would look
like, and how they would
sound after so many years.
They were both now in their
forties and, I reasoned,
couldn't sound anything like
they did that long ago.
I was not surprised to see
that they had aged. They
looked neat and well groom-
ed, but they had the looks of
two men in their forties.
Their sound was what was
so surprising! They sounded
just like they did when I was
a freshman in college. And
they sang every song they
had ever recorded. For nine-
ty minutes I was lost in
memories of days gone for-

ever.
The first song they sang
was "Wake Up Little Suzie."
That one reminded me of the
night I took Myrtle Lotlotter
out. We went to a movie and
afterwards went to a ham-
burger joint for something to
eat. She ate a large cheese-
burger, two orders of fries,


. 4 .' : :.


and a large milkshake. WE
then went to her home, and
were sitting in the swing on
her front porch. That's where
she went to sleep. That's also
'the place I tiptoed off and left
her. She never spoke to me
again. I didn't want her to.
Any girl that ate that much
was too rich for my meager


existence.
The next song was "Till I
Kissed You." That one re-
minded me of Suzie Mottlow.
She was the first girl I went
"steady" with. She was a
beautiful girl and we went
steady for eighteen months,
three weeks and four days. In
all that time I never worked
up the courage to kiss her. I
caught her with my best
friend at a drive-in movie in
Jackson, Mississippi. I never
spoke to her again! She,
however, didn't want me to.
Another song they sang
was "Dream, Dream,
Dream." The memories real-
ly came flooding in. I'll never
forget Hodene Grunchmier.


She is the only girl (except
my lovely wife, of course)
that I truly loved. Admitted-
ly, she wasn't perfect, but
she was all woman!
. Hodene was as wild as a
March wind, but as cute as a
speckled puppy. She could be
as gentle as a baby lamb, or
as mean as a wildcat with a
sticker in his hind-paw! She's
the only person I've ever
known that thought the world
wasn't big enough. It wasn't!
She was killed trying to dive
into a Holiday Inn swimming
pool from a flying airplane at
500 feet.
Hodene was a sport!
I didn't sleep at all that
night.

SNever Brag About Having A Good Week If You Happen to Have One


I'LL NEVER DO that again. If I
ever have one of those perfect weeks
at some time in the future, I'm going
to keep it one big, deep, dark' secret.
It'il be something only I will know
about.
If I ever have another week in
. which, everything runs along smooth-
ly,:you won't be able to tell it by my
actions nor my words. It'll be top,
'ci..ssified .secret information. I'm not
even going to tell Frenchie and
. certainly not anybody else.
The paper hadn't much more than
gotten into the mails last week and we
were getting in a few early licks on the
'next week's paper, when, lo and
'behold, a computer typesetter acted
like someone from up in Alaska was
'trying to get in on its program,
-possibly trying to brag to some of its
southern relatives about it being
warmer in Anchorage, Alaska than it
was in Tampa recently. From what
we were getting out of the typesetter,
it had to be some such deviant,
venting his frustrations. What we
: were getting out of the computer-or


not getting, as the case happened to
be-was definitely frustration to us
here at The Star.
THESE COMPUTERS, cameras


ran out of power.
Before you come up with the idea
that the typesetter is' just taking after
me from association, let me tell you
my power may be dim, but it's still.


ETAOIN SHRDLU

SBy: W


and the sophisticated machinery we
use to print the paper these days are
fine and make the task just a little
easier than in the old days, but when
one of them goes bad, you are in a'
giant pickle.
One of our computer type setters
just refused to set. I set last week's
column three times before I ever got it
in type. The machine I usually use had
a malfunction in the typesetter and it


there.
At any rate, it took several calls to
a service center, somewhere in
Massachusetts, some probing in the
machines" innards by my friend Neil
Arnold with his trusty volt meter who
came up with the diagnosis that the
power module had run out of gas.
To make a long story short, it was
Tuesday afternoon before we got the


machine going again and then the big
rush began.
On top of that, the humidity
caused us trouble with the press and
we hay-ed out about as much paper as


we used for last week's paper. You
paper mill workers understand the
term "hay'ed out" and to those who
aren't paper mill workers, that means
paying for paper you have to throw
away.

THERE ARE SOME things one
has to expect when you get involved
with machinery and electronic mach-


inery especially. If something me-
chanical quits in the middle of a week,
a little haywire here and a nail there
or a piece of chewing gum stuck there
or a drop of oil in a particularly
vulnerable spot and you can limp on
through to completion.
I have put several papers to bed
with ailing machines limping along
until the paper was put to rest to allow
time for repairs.
These electronic gadgets we use
today remind me of my old station
wagon. I was coming into town one
night about dark and the thing just cut
off. No sputtering, no missing, no
noises, no warning of any kind. It just
stopped.
A little. later I found out the
electronic gadget which operates the
firing activities of the motor had gone
bad. As the mechanic said at the time,
"You can't tell if it's going bad. It's
either working correctly or it's not
operating at all."
That's the way with all electronic
gadgets-either they are working or


they're not.


they're not.
THIS MUST HAVE been the week
for the gremlins to be out inforce.
We had no sooner had the
electronic type-setting gadget give up
the ghost here at The Star, when a
boiler blew a tube out at St. Joe Paper
Company's mill and shut them down.
This came after the power had gone
off and plunged the entire mill into
darkness.
Then, walking up the street, in
search of an inch or two of advertise-
ment, I found Jimmy Costin looking
into St. Joe Hardware's posting
machine like he was contemplating
making the thing into a boat anchor. It
wouldn't work either. So far as I know,
it is still on the fritz.
In the so-called "good old days",
we wouldn't be faced with these
problems. I'm firmly convinced,
though, that it is a better situation we
find ourselves in today and be faced
with the fickleness of the electronic
marvels than to be faced with the
prospect of having to pump water by
hand, like our daddys did.

Joseph Historical Society
Friday night, telling an in-
teresting tale of the history of
old St. Joseph's railroads.
Hurst had done some pre-


liminary work on locating the
beds of the two railroads
which came in. to the old city
while still in high school. He
has since mapped both rail-
road beds and has done some
underwater work to locate
the exact location and dimen-
sions of the pier which jutted

Society dinner, and Wayne Childers, president, look over
some aerial photographs showing the path of the old lola
Railroad line. -Star photo


out into St. Joseph Bay,
which carried the railroad
tracks.
Hurst said the pier was
located for about 1,800 feet
into the bay, extending from
a track bed which ran
between present-day Iola
Street and Niles Road.
Hurst showed maps which
still faintly showed the road
bed of the area's first-and
reportedly Florida's first- '
steam railroad from the bay
to a point on Depot Creek,
near Odena, where the rail-
road off-loaded cotton from
river steamers for shipment
on sailing ships.
Hurst said the Baldwin still
has records of the locomotive
used on the St. Joseph line.
"It bore serial number 46",
Hurst said.
Later, when shippers found
that Lake Wimico was too
shallow to handle the river
steamers, the rail line was
re-rputed to Odena, northeast
of Wewahitchka on the Apa-
lachicola River.
The old rail line followed
the present road bed of
Highway 71 to a point be-
tween Honeyville and Wewa-
hitchka, where it veered
toward Dead Lakes and
crossed the lakes on a trestle
just to the north of the
present bridge across the
lakes. The old railroad used
the same route how used by
Road 22, which goes tothe
edge of the lakes.
Hurst used several slides to
illustrate his talk, including
aerial photos taken of the
areas in which the railroads


operated, still showing an
outline caused by the location
of the old road beds.
PRESIDENT'S REPORT
Historical Society presi-
dent Wayne Childers outlined
five major projects accom-
plished by the historians over
the past year.
Childers reported the So-
ciety had been active for
years, in obtaining a new
addition to the Constitution
Park Museum here in Port St
Joe, which was completed
and dedicated this past year.
The Society replaced the
grave marker of Jason
Blackwell in the old ceme-
tery. Blackwell was on board
the ship which brought yel-
low fever into old St. Joseph
and his gravestone had be-
come deteriorated with age
and destruction by vandals in
past years.
The Society became inter-
.ested in securing parkland
for the county and became
active in a committee ap-
pointed for that purpose by
the County Commission.
The Society also adopted
a project to have Road C-30
designated as a scenic high-
way.
Childers announced an of-
ficer slate for the coming
year which will consist of
Childers as president; Jesse
Stone, vice president; Mrs.
Nancy Howell, correspond-
ing. secretary; Mrs. Mae
Dean, treasurer and Mrs.
Edith Stone, parliamentar-
ian.


Supervisor of Elections,
Cora Sue Robinson said
this week, her office will
conduct a registration
campaign to get people
registered to vote in the
Presidential Preference
primary in March. Ms.
Borinson said the registra-
tion books will be open until
February 11, when the
books will be closed under
state law until the March
election is over.
Robinson said several
names were removed from


the rolls in a recent peri-
odic purge of the rolls and
there has been a good bit of
interest shown ih getting
back on the voter rolls by
many of those people who
were removed.
To make it more conven-
ient for people to register,
Robinson has scheduled
several special registration
drives between now and
next Saturday, most of
which are designed to take
the registration books to
the prospective voters.

Robinson Talks


to Kiwanians


It may have taken a
while, but a Jeep stolen in
Port St. Joe back in May of
1980, was recovered by law
enforcement officers in Sara-
land, Alabama last week.
David Byrd of 280 Avenue
D here in Port St. Joe,
reported his 1977 CJ7 Jeep
stolen on May 26, 1980. Byrd
said the vehicle was stolen
from his residence.
Last week, a police officer
in Saraland stopped a Jeep
for speeding. A check of the
crime computer revealed it
was the same Jeep which
was stolen here in Port St.


Joe three years ago.
Driving the Jeep was a
Saraland mechanic identi-
fied as Tommy Lee Holmes.
'Holmes said the Jeep was left
in his custody for repairs a
few years ago. "When the
Jeep was fixed, the driver
said he could not afford to
pay for the repairs and gave
the Jeep to me as payment",


Holmes said.

Based on this and other
information, investigator
Phil McLeod obtained a
warrant for grand theft
against James M. Bowie,
formerly of Port St. Joe.
Bowie is still at large and has
not been arrested at this
time.

Stolen Jeep Is Recovered


Rotarian John Miller gave
the club an interesting pro-
gram last Thursday on the
old lumber ship which was
sunk just off the channel
entrance to St Joseph Bay
during World War II.-
According to Miller, there
were three theories ,as to
what caused the ship to sink.
It was in a bad need of repair
and some felt its state of
condition caused it to sink;
some thought it was scuttled
by its predominately Euro-
pean crew and some thought
it was sunk by a German


Cora Sue Robinson, Gulf
County's Supervisor of Elec-
tions, outlined responsibilities
of voters for the coming year
to the Kiwanis Club Tuesday
at their noon luncheon.
Coming up first, in March,
is the selection of delegates
to represent the two political
parties in Gulf County. Ms.
Robinson said each party is
allowed a man and woman
delegate from each precinct
in the county for each i,000
voters. "This year, there is
competition for the posts in
two of the 13 precincts in the
county", the Supervisor said.
Another responsibility of
the voters is the selection of
candidates to make a voter's
selection for Presidential
candidate at the July conven-
tion. A voter votes for five
delegates who are pledged to
the Presidential candidate of
his choice. "The candidates
are pledged for two ballots at
the Convention, then they can
caucus and vote as they see
fit", Robinson said.
A controversial question on
the March ballot is the straw
ballot as to whether or not
voters of Gulf .County favor
removal of the dam at the
south end of the Dead Lakes.
Robinson said there are
now 6,481 registered voters
-on the county books. "We
purged the list this'year of
voters who had not cast a
ballot in two years and who

submarine which was active
in the area at the time.
Dave Maddox, local bar
pilot, was present at the
meeting and said the captain
of the ship was arrested a
short while after the sinking
and charged with scuttling
the boat.
Miller said the ship had an
interesting past. It was first
built in England in 1919 and
later became a- part of
Admiral Byrd's expedition to
map the South Pple. The
ship, then named "The Chel-
sea", carried the aircraft
with which Byrd did his
exploration of the South Pole.
It was the first steel hull boat
ever to participate in a Polar
expedition and was specially
reinforced inside for the,
venture.
When the ship went down
off Port St. Joe, it was
named, "The Val-Mar".
Miller said the ship, which
was very slow, was powered
by a relatively small steam
engine. It had taken on a
cargo of lumber here in Port
St. Joe 'and was bound for
Guantanamo, Cuba, in
March of 1942.
As it started out of the Bay
into the Gulf off st. Joseph's
Point,, a crewman came up
from below advising every-
one to abandon ship because
the boat was sinking from a
hole in the bottom. The crew
abandoned ship, leaving the
engine running and the boat
under way. It veered off into
about 25 feet of water,
outside the channel where it
settled to the bottom. Storms
heavily damaged the help-
less boat, sitting on the
bottom with most of its
superstructure still above the
water line.
A salvage ship came into
the area to free the boat, but
stayed only a short while,
then left with no attempt
made to free it.
A while later, the Coast
Guard planted explosives in
the derelict phip and blew it
apart to remove the naviga-
tional hazard.


failed to send back a post
card expressing their desire
to be left on the voting rolls",
robinson said. She predicted
that by the time the Novem-
ber elections roll around, the
registered voters will total
over 7,000.
In 1926, when the county
was cut from Calhoun Coun-
ty, there were 680 registered
voters in the new Gulf
County. In 1980, there were
7,001.
The Supervisor said her
office maintains an on-going
education program in the
schools, teaching them how
to vote on voting machines
and the importance of the
vote. "We let the school use
county voting machines to
hold their elections on as an
education tool", she said.
In order to get ready for the
election year coming up, Ms.
Robinson said her office will
be conducting voter registra-
tion drives throughout the
year. She pointed out that the
registration books will close
for the Presidential prefer-
ence election on February 11,
and that her office will be
open all day on Saturdays un-
til then for the convenience of
those desiring to register.
Guests of the club were:
Ivan Blevan of Canfield,
Ohio; Key Club members
Matt Taylor and Steve
Kerigan; and Keyettes Julie
Allen and Leslie Wilder.

P Wesley Grace


AIDS FOR LOW
VISION PATIENTS
: Some older people are af-
flicted with a condition pro-
fessionals call "low vision."
In these patients, irreversi-
ble damage has occurred in
the eyeball, the optic nerves,
or the areas of the brain that
control seeing, so that ordi-
nary eyeglasses cannot
restore the ability to see
even to the 20/40 level.
Causes vary. The most
common causes of low vision
in older people are: glau-
coma, cataracts, diabetes,
high blood pressure, and
retinal degeneration. In
younger people, low vision is
usually congenital.
There are, however, spe-
cial low-vision aids that can
help some low-vision pat-
ients to see more clearly.
Telescopic lenses (similar to
,he lenses in a telescope) are
used to improve the ability to
see distant objects like signs
and movies. Microscopic
lenses (similar to the lenses
in a microscope) can help
low-vision patients read and
sew. The strong lenses en.
large the print or stitches.
:These aids are not always
:fitted into a traditional eye-
,glass frame. They often have
Their own especially design-
,ed holder. Your optometrist
Iknows a great deal about
Sow-vision aids.

Farmers in Florida have suf-

:the recent freeze. The damage
is frightening and we.still do not
know its full extent.
That is the reason I have
asked the Governor and the
:Secretary of Agriculture to
declare our district a disaster
area so that some relief can be
given our farmers. Even with.
every possible assistance which
can be given under our present
programs, it is not going to be
enough for many of our farmers
:and ranchers.
The Secretary has toured a
part of our state and has seen
a portion of the massive
damage for himself. He has re-
quested full damage reports so
that he can make a disaster
declaration. I have urged all
those involved to move as
quickly as possible, to cut the


red tape, so that this desperate-
ly needed assistance can be.

Sharks Struck with 2 More Losses

Havana, Marianna, Nip Formerly Invincible Shark Quintet Team


After going all season long
without a loss, suddenly the
Sharks have lost three games
in a row within a week's play.
Their losses have not seemed
to hurt their state-wide
standings, however, as their
ranking has improved from
number eight to number
seven when the poll was,
released this past Tuesday.
After Rutherford broke the
Sharks' perfect record last
Tuesday, then have since lost
by one point to Havana in the
Gulf Coast Conference tour-
nament and to a tough
Marianna team Tuesday
night.
Tuesday night's loss was a
big one, with the Sharks
coming out on the short end
of a 92-76 count.
"We had it won up until the
last quarter, when things just
started to fall apart", Coach
Jim Belin said. "Mid way in
the third period, it looked as
if we were going to 'blow


them out', then the momen-
tum turned. We were out-shot
at the free throw line and a
last quarter surge by them
just caused everything to fall
apart for us in the last
period", Belin said.
The Bulldogs had four men
shooting in double figures,
led by Anthony Bevins with
22 points. T. Fed added 18, J.
Wilson had 12 and Brown 16
to spur the win. The Bulldogs
shot 15 of 26 free throw
attempts.
The Sharks also had four
men shooting in double fig-
ures in taking the loss. Durey
Cadwell led the scoring with
21 points. Mike Pittman was
close behind with 20 and Josh
Jenkins and Terry Woullard
had 15 and 10 respectively.
The Sharks were able to
capitalize on only 10 of 28 free
throw attempts, a season low
percentage.

Friday night, the Sharks
were defeating a determined
Havana team in Tallahassee
in the Gulf Coast Conference
tournament, but the Gladia-
tors sank a shot at the buzzer
to tie the game and won in
overtime.
With the score tied in the
last minute of play by
three-point play by Durey
Cadwell, Havana was hold-
ing the ball for the last shot of
the game. Evans tried a bank


shot at the buzzer, but the
ball stuck between the goal
rim and the backboard.
Harvihi hit on a three-point
play at the start of the
overtime and the one point
was the margin that won the
game for the Gladiators,
66-65. and put the Sharks out
of the tournament play.
The Gladiators went on to


win the tournament against
the Taylor County Bulldogs
with a 58-48 game Saturday
night.
The Sharks had a six point
lead at half time, but a third
quarter surge of 20 points,
put the Gladiators, within
striking distance.
Richie Evans was the
leading scorer for the Gladia-

Mike Pittman hit the nets
for 23 points for the Sharks.
Cadwell and Jenkins both
had 14 points and Robinson 10
for the Sharks.

Things aren't expected to
get any easier for the Sharks
during the coming week.

town Friday night for a
re-match. The Sharks take.to
the road again to Grand
Ridge to meet the Indiap,

you consider the number of
missiles the USSR has station-
ed in Eastern Europe in the last
few years. Our deployment was
not a provocative act but,
rather, a reaction to an enor-
mous buildup by Russia.
The saying goes that we
should.never negotiate out of
fear b4t we should never fear to


negotiate. Any arms deal must
be mutual and it must be
verifiable a sticking, point
with Russia because of their
past unwillingness to permit
neutral inspections on the
ground.
I am not confident that the
President's call will be heeded
but I am hopeful that it will not
fall on deaf ears in Moscow.
The fact that Soviet leader Yuri
Andropov has not been seen
since August is troublesome.
For meaningful talks, Nwe have
to have someone on the other-
side in a position to make deci-
sions. The situation of
confusion 'over who exactly is
running the Soviet Union has to
be settled before we can expect
to get anywhere in negotiations.


Congress has returned and
we face many difficult
economic decisions. We have
not had a; balanced budget
since the 1960s and deficits
have climbed by over 200% in
the last few years. I remain
committed to the goal of a
balanced federal budget and
hope we can again-consider a
constitutional amendment to re-
quire a balanced budget. I first


introduced such a proposal in
1976 and continue to believe it
would be a good and sound
public policy.
The Congressional budget
process has helped in recent
years but we have not made the
kinds of reductions in spending
that are going to be necessary
to provide full economic
recovery.
I am convinced that Con-
gress will respond to the
challenge of 1984 and make the
changes necessary to aid our
economy. The President will
submit his FY 1985 budget in
the near future and I am hopeful
that he will call for the reduc-
tions needed. Working
together, we can complete our
economic,recovery and insure
prosperity for the coming years.

Time to Start Preparations for Spring Garden


A Soil Test Gives Some Valuable Information on


By ROY LEE CARTER
County Extension Director
A soil test could spell the
difference between success
and failure for those planning
a spring vegetable garden.
All too often, gardeners
assume an application of
fertilizer, and a helping of
lime, is just what the doctor
ordered for a bountiful har-
vest. This might be the case
for some gardens. But, for
others, those steps could lead
to trouble and unnecessary
expense. A soil test is the
only way to determine your
garden's exact needs.
A soil test can be a
valuable guide for home
vegetable gardeners. It will
indicate the soil's content of
available phosphorus, potas-


CARTER
sium, calcium, and magne-
sium. It will also determine
the soil's pH, the degree of
acidity or alkalinity. By
analyzing the results, a soil
technologist can recommend
the liming and fertilizing

practices that can produce
the best growing conditions.
The first step is taking a
soil sample, which is rela-
tively easy. Check with your
County Extznsion Office con-
cerning sampling bags, tools,
and testing services. Using a
sampling auger, or a shovel,
take cores of soil six inches
deep from at least 15 differ-
ent spots in your garden.
Avoid unusual areas, such as
wet spots and burn piles.
Thoroughly mix these cores
together to make one repre-
sentative sample. Place this
mixture in a sampling bag,
complete the accompanying
information card, place soil
and card in box, and deliver
the sample for testing.
The soil pH, indicated by
the test, will determine the


need for lime. Most vege-
tables grow best in a soil with
a pH between five-point-five
(5.5) and six-point-five (6.5),
a level that's slightly acid, or
"sour". A pH of seven is
neutral. Seven-point-one
(7.1) or above is alkaline, or
"sweet". If a test indicates
your garden soil is too acid,
the laboratory probably will
recommend an application of
lime to reduce soil acidity.
Carefully follow the labora-
tory's recommendations con-
cerning the amount of lime tW
add. Too much may be just
as bad as too little. And, be
sure you allow enough time
to add the lime before
planting. Dolomite is a good
liming agent. But, because it
reacts slowly, it should be
applied two or three months

Typically, people have had
to go to banks to learn about
banking. The transition is
being- made however, the
banking .representative as-
sisting the teacher with the
technical aspects of banking.
This is evidenced in a new
filmstrip program "Banking
Is" which the Port St. Joe
office of the Wewahitchka
State Banks presented as a
public service to the students
at Port St. Joe High School.
Nolan F. Treglown, Execu-
tive Vice President, made
the presentation on January
26. Receiving the multimedia
filmstrip unit at a presenta-
tion meeting at Port St. Joe
High School was Edwin Willi-
ams, Principal.
In making the presentation
Mr. Treglown said, "The
program "Banking Is..."
gives the students firsthand
experience with the basic
banking activities they will
use throughout their lives.
"Writing a check, applying
for a loan, computing inter-
est, and using a bank's
services are things most
adults take for granted; we
have done them all our lives.
But these activities must be
learned, and for many of
today's students they can be
foreign as any new endea-
vor.
"Many adults learned
banking by trial and error;
but; in today's world of
advancing technology, this is
no longer a satisfactory
solution. For instance, today
checkwriting is as much a
part of life as driving is.
Ninety percent of all finan-
cial transactions are made
by check, and the American
public will write more than 37
billion checks this year. Yet,
in spite of this, statistics
show that less than 85
percent of the graduating
raniors know how to write a
check properly. So, it is easy
to see that checkwriting is an
activity that students should
understand if they are to take
their places in the financial

community.
"We hope our sponsorship
of this program will help give
students a more thorough
and systematic understand-
ing of these basic banking
activities, the new services
that are available, and help
them in the management of
their personal financial af-
fairs.
"We strongly believe that
the more financially secure
students become through
knowledge and practice of
good banking, the better
citizens they become; and
the better our young citizens,
the better our tomorrow.
In addition, Nolan Treg-
lown pointed out that as part
of the program, an officer of
the bank is available for a
follow-up classroom question
and answer session, and the
students may be given a tour
of the bank to see numerous
financial operations at work..

Your Soil's Condition


prior to planting. If you're in
a hurry, use Hydrated Lime.
It can be applied only two
weeks before planting, pro-
vided it's thoroughly mixed
with the soil.
Although a soil test pro-
vides vital information on
fertilization and liming,
there's a lot it won't reveal.
For example, a soil test
doesn't show the presence of
insects, nematodes, or disea-
se organisms. And, it can't be
determined whether your
garden is too wet or too dry.
So, it's just part of a sound
management program. You
also must choose the proper
crop varieties, buy good
seed, plant at the right time,
water properly, and control
pest and diseases.


Reviewing briefly, a soil
test will indicate the relative
amounts of nitrogen, phos-
phorus, potassium, calcium
and magnesium in your
garden plot, as well as the pH
level. You can use this
information to determine
how much of a particular
analysis fertilizer, and the
quantity of lime, if any, to
apply. Taking a soil sample
is a simple process you can
perform yourself, with ad-
vice from your County Ex-
tension office. But remem-
ber, a soil test is no substitute
for sound management. It's
just one of the basic steps
along the path to a successful
vegetable garden. However,
it is an important step, and
one that should be taken well
in advance of planting time.
