parking.
The meters never did make the City
any money. While the revenues were
ear-marked for parks and playgrounds
over the years, the meters rarely yielded
more than enough money to just keep the

Building Fees Are Up



City's Permit Fees Match Those of County


Acting on the advice of building inspector, E.
F. Gunn, the City Commission agreed to increase
its charges for 'various activities under the
building inspection ordinance, increasing the
fees to be collected to equal ,hat of Gulf.County.
The new fee system would bring those fees
charged by the City up to the same rate as is
being charged all over Gulf County, with the
exception of Port St. Joe. The new rate schedule
in Port St. Joe will now make building inspection
fees the same all over the,.county.
The fees are based on the value of the
building to be constructed,' based on a cost of
$25.00 per square foot, for ascertaining the
permit and inspection costs,
The new rates would set a minimum fee of
$10.00 for buildings of $2,000 or less; $4.00 per
thousand from $2.001 to $15,000; $60.00 for first
$15,000 and $3.00 for each additional $1,000 for
vaules $15,000 to $50,000; $165 00 for first $50,000
-and $2.00 for each additional $1,000 for $50,001 to
$100,000; $290.00 for first $100,000 and $1.25 for
each additional $1,000 for $100,001 to $500,000 and
for construction over that amount, a flat fee of


Effort to

Secure


1st Copy
The St. Joseph Historical
Society %ill put forth a
gigantic effort to secure the
recently found first Constitu-
tion of Florida to be placed in
the Constitution Museum
here in Port St Joe, accord-
ing to society president,
Wayne Childers.
"It belongs here". Childers
said. "and \%e'r.e.going-aoryy.
and persuade the Galphin
family in Fernandina Beach
and the Archive,s Bureau in
Tallahassee, that the local
museum is the logical place
to put the State's first
Constitution on display".
The first Constitution of the
state of Florida was drawn
up and signed in a building on
the spot occupied by the
Constitution Monument in
Constitution Park on the
southern edge of the City of
Port St. Joe.
"They didn't even know
there was a museum dedi-
cated to the drafting of the
state's first Constitution",
Childers said. "Since we
have been successful in in-
forming them of this fact, we
feel we have a good chance of
getting the original docu-
ment placed here", the His-
torical Society leader said.
Childers said the Society
would begin by trying to
gather the support of the
people of Gulf County in
asking for the document.
"We're going to offer some-
thing in, trade; possibly we'll
offer a set of old railroad
wheels, since Fernandina
Beach was the possessor of
one of Florida's first rail-
roads and we have two sets of
wheels dating back to that
era", he said.
(Continued on Page 3)


$790.00 for first $500,000 of value and 75 cents for
each additional $1,000.
Gunn said state requirements on inspection
activities are demanding more and more time of
the inspector and the fees needed to be increased
'to pay for this extra time involved.
The new rate scale will probably take effect
in about a month, since the Commission must
follow the procedure to change the building
inspection ordinance to accommodate the new
fees before they will go into effect.
WATER REPORT
The Northwest Florida Water Management
District filed a report with the City Commission,
stating it is their opinion the City of Port St. Joe
has plenty of water capacity to furnish water to
the Beaches and Highland View.. The Water
Management Commission was called in to
review the situation .and give the City an
assessment of plans to sell treated water to the
planned systems.
The report from Douglas E. Barr, director of
the management, district, said the City presently


SENATOR PAULA HAWKINS

HaWkins to Speak
U. S. Senator Paula Hawkins will be in Port St. Joe
Monday of next week, speaking before a meeting of the
Saint Joseph Bay Chapter of the American Association
of Retired Persons, as they gather for their monthly
meeting in the Centennial Building.
Senator Hawkins will speak on her work in
Washirgton and about her efforts in the Senate to
suppress the drug traffic in the United States and
particularly in Florida. At the conclusion of her
report to the people, she will answer questions from the
audien e.
Thi meeting, which begins at 2:30 p.m., will be
open tolthe general public, who are being invited by the
AARP io hear Senator Hawkins' address.


has plenty of capacity to furnish the area. His
report showed the City's treatment plant has a
daily capacity of two million treated gallons of
water while the entire area, including Port St
Joe and its present system plus Highland View
and the Beaches will require only 1.59 million
gallons at peak demand.
The City had been tentatively planning to
pipe water from the present Highland View
system's well to the treatment plant for an extra
source of raw water. NWFMD recommended
that the City not depend on the well as a supply
source due to its proximity to salt water and the
age of the well casing.
An analysis of Port St. Joe's water supply
showed that dissolved metals and pesticides
which are currently popping up in Paibanrdle
water supplies are "either undetected or
occurred. at concentrations far below the
drinking water standards", giving the water a
stamp of approval from the safety standpoint.

7 Names, Two


questions On


[arch Ballot


SGulf County voters will
face a multitude of names on
the Presidential Preference
ballot on March 13. With the
final day passing Monday for
placing questions on the
early election ballot, there
are 67 names facing Demo-
crats._ the county. Demo-
tals aire predominant in
Gulf County, with only a
handful of Republicans regis-
tered.
Of these 67 names on the
Democratic ballot, only one
decision is to be made
county-wide who will the
voter support for a Demo-.
cratic candidate for Presi-
dent of the United States.
Two precincts in the county
will elect representatives to
the local Democratic Execu-
tive Committee.
As if this wasn't confusing
enough; all county voters will
have two straw ballots facing
them on the ballot after
action by the County Com-
mission just before the ballot
closing deadline. Monday.
The straw ballots will not be
binding in any way, but will
feel out the opinion of local
citizens on two questions.
The ballot will test the
public air on whether or not
they favor removing the
Dead Lakes Dam and if they
favor locating Florida's first


Constitution here in Port St.
Joe.
A third question was con-
sidered. for the ballot, but
was turned down when the
County Commission refused
in a special meeting last
Thursday to include a second
question concerning the
Dea-d Lakes dam.
The Dead Lakes Water and
Management District board
*requested the Commission to
place a straw vote on the
ballot which said: "If fish
and conservation problems
can be resolved without
removing the entire Dead
Lakes Dam, should the entire
dam be removed?"
The majority of the Com-
mission felt the question
already on the ballot con-
cerning the Dead Lakes Dam
was sufficient to express the
feelings of the county popu-
lace.
The last question would
merely express county-wide
support for moving the first
Constitution of Florida to
Port St. Joe. "We feel we
don't have a chance unless
we can show that the people
here want it", Historical
Society president, Wayne
Childers said in proposing
the question for the ballot to
the County Commission.


Paints A Rosy Picture


Gulf Students Score Above State Average


Mrs. Barbara Shirley, Director of
Instruction in Gulf County Schools,
painted a rosy picture of improve-
ment to the Gulf County School Board
Tuesday morning.
Labeling her report a "success
story", Mrs. Shirley said testing this
year has revealed that third, fifth and
eighth graders were above the state
average in test scoring and have
shown a dramatic improvement since
the testing was first initiated in the
1978-79 school year. "Results from the
high school grades will not be
available until later this school year",
Shirley stated.
The Curriculum Director pointed
out that Gulf District students scored
consistently above state averages in
all three areas tested, reading,
writing and arithmetic. State aver-
ages for the three subjects in third
grade were 92 in reading, 96 for
writing and 92 in mathematics. Gulf's
third graders scored 94, 97 and 95,


respectively in the three categories.
When the testing was first begun
in the 1978-79 school year, some of the
schools were below the state accept-
able average grade of 70. "Today, all
schools are above the state average in'
all subjects. That's a dramatic
turn-around of our students' ability",
Mrs. Shirley said.
With all elementary schools in the
district showing marked improve-
ment in testing grades, Highland View
Elementary School showed the most
improvement, particularly in grade 3.
Grade 5 was about on a par with other
schools in the county when the testing
program was started. Highland
View's school advanced from a low of
67 for reading and 66 for writing to a
county high 95 for reading and 97 for
writing in the six years of testing.
Grade 8 students 'were also in
trouble six years ago, when testing
was first introduced. Scoring below
the state passing grade of 70 six years


ago, eighth grade students have now
advanced to well above state aver-
'ages in all testing categories. With
state averages at 88, 93 and 87 for
reading, writing and mathematics,
Gulf County's eighth grade students
ran up impressive grades of 92, 96 and
92.
Mrs. Shirley told the Board that in
school year 1981-82, Gulf's eighth
graders turned in the hignest aver-
ages of any school in the Panhandle
and tied with the top three schools in
the state in scoring.
Board chairman, Gene Raffield,
asked Mrs. Shirley if she could
pin-point any one reason as the most
important in this dramatic improve-
ment in testing scores. The director
replied, promptly, "Teacher atti-
tude."
"We were teaching the material,
but we were not teaching 'test sav-
vy' ", Superintendent Walter Wilder
remarked.


Elementary School PTA

Port St. Joe Elementary School's PT,. was recogniz-
ed by the County School Board Tuesday for Its achievement
in having an enrollment made up of members from 100
percent of the families represented by the enrollment atthe
school. This was the first time ever that the local PTA has
achieved full representation membership. School Board
Chairman, Gene Raffield, in showing the certificate to PTA


Recognized for Enrollment
officers prior to the meeting, said, "We need this type
parent involvement in every school". In the photo above,

Fred Witten, secretary and Mrs. Charlotte Pierce,
treasurer and membership chairman receive the award
from chairman Raffield. PTA president, Ned Ailes, was not
present for the presentation. -Star photo

Gulf County has received a gift
of some 42-plus acres of prime land
to be used for a public park. The
grant was made from the federal

in anticipation of what they could

the property, it remains to be seen
how good a steward the people of
SGulf County will be with this
_ magnanimous gift. Will we develop
p it for the enjoyment of our people.
or will we do like the state of Flor-
ida, and figuratively build a fence
around it saying, "Don't touch" in

-'conversations in Gulf County

recreation. County Commissions in

Phil Is A
Punxsutawney Phil, the world-
j famous groundhog of Punxsutaw--.,
f ney,, Pennsylvarnia, has predicted
S another six weeks of winter for the
3 nation because he saw his shadow
on his February second venture out
of his burrow.
Personally, we thing Phil's
early spring venture from his
burrow is due to the call of nature
rather than a desire to get outside
in that cold Pennsylvania weather,
but that is neither here nor there.
It has always been our belief
that Phil was a habitat of the wild
Sand was utilizing his instict, given'
to all things wild, to predict what
;- was to come in the way of cold
weather for us mere humans who
S must rely on the weather man with
2 his balloons, barometers, jet
streams and colored charts on
television for his weather' fore-
casts.
i Imagine our dismay to find
that Phil is a creature of controlled


and reluctance of the people to be
willing to pay for it. It's that
simple.
Even though this vaulable
piece of property has now been
given to the county, it will still take
money to develop and maintain as
a place for the public to play.
This means tax money-money
you and I will be expected to pay.
It will be an easy thing for all of
us to do when we start kicking sand
in the Commission's face for not
utilizing this gift. In reality, the
sand needs to be kicked in the face
of John Q. Citizen if he does not
offer his support for development
of the park for the people to use. We
must be willing to pay the price.
Those who have served on
Commissions in the past, know of
the expense for maintaining parks.
They had experience with the park
on the banks of the Apalachicola
River at the end of Road 22, for
instance. Maintenance of that park
was a constant expense due to the
vandalism and mis-use by the
public. The expense became so
heavy the county had to almost
abandon the area to the vandals
and give upt on trying to keep the
facilities useable.
People tend to tear up public
facilities.
We have a valuable asset now.
Let's give the Commission our
support in its development and
then take care of it once it is
completed.

environment. He lives in a special
gompopnd provided for him by
ifuiian beings, and not in a hole in'
the ground out in the Pennsylvania
wilds.
Phil, himself, is a victim of the
uncanny and at times unstable
prognostications, of the fallible
human weather man.
A group of men who call
themselves, The Punxsutawney
Groundhog Club, who provides him
a place to stay in digs which would
make most any groundhog fat and
lazy and unconcerned about what
the real weather was like, even
provide their captive groundhog a
wife to keep him. company. How
can we continue our faith in the
predictions of Phil after such a
revelation?
We had just as well trust the
moss on the trees for our weather
predictions... or the fact that the
bearded weather man on TV has
shaved off his winter cover.


A MAN'S WORLD


I've always had a big
brother. You see, I was the
youngest boy in a family of
ten, five girls and five boys.
And I don't know, what I
would have done without my
big brothers.
When I was very young,
people picked on me from
time .to time, especially the
older boys. Sometimes the
older girls would pick on me,
but that didn't bother me too
much because I could outrun
them. The boys, however,
were a different problem
because some of hem could
outrun me or at least keep up
with me. I found it very
difficult to fight while run'-
ning, and while someone was
hitting me in the 3ack of the
head.
One of my older brothers
was a super athlete. He was
swift-a-foot and could play
most any sport. And he was

Don't Let Deer Eat Bread Products


Dear Sir:
It saddened me to learn
that a deer at the school zoo
died recently. I don't know
what caused its death, how-
ever, perhaps the following
might be of interest.
When I was young, we lived
near a large park. One of the
main attractions was a small
zoo which housed several


deer. The zoo keepers warn-
ed the visitors Not To Feed
The Deer Bread Or Any Food
That Contained Yeast. This
warning was logical because
deer have a very sensitive
digestive system and when a
deer eats bread, the yeast
forms a fungus in its stomach
which eventually causes the
animal to starve to death.


If another deer is obtained
for the zoo at the school,
perhaps it would be appropri-
ate to post a sign requesting
that the animals not be fed
bread, as it prevents the
right food from being digest-
ed.
Yours very truly,
Marjorie Parker

it showed up better on color television.
It's a question of which came
first: the chicken or the egg.
EVEN THOUGH WE are accus-
tomed to a wide selection of color
choices in everything we purchase, I


considering such a dr stic step, even
though it is the chic t ing to do t ese
days.
Why, even blue eans aren t all
blue. Some are other hues of the olor
spectrum, even though they ar still
called jeans.
But Uncle Sammy, dear riend
that is, has announced that there is
consideration in the making for


little money on occasion which had
seen better days. It was wrinkled, the
corners torn, the ink fading, a rip here
or a rip there, or maybe even a rusty
streak where it has been fastened to
other money with a gem clip and the
clip has rusted.
In my experience, people haven't
quibbled over the color or the
condition of money. It's acceptable, in
whatever condition or hue of green.


THE UNCLE WHO makes all the
money we use every day (when we
can get our hands on it) is considering
printing those dollar bills in pink, blue
and other hues.
Can't you see it now? There might
be a groundswell of protest toward
some colors, if all this comes about.
Can't you see the reluctance of
someone to take a red colored bill
from a firm or individual one knows is
right at being broke? Or consider, if
you will, the reluctance to rob your
child's piggy bank and find pink bills
therein. Everyone would know...or
suspect, which is just as bad.
Would you take a blue bill on a
rainy day? Or a yellow in a green
room or while you had on a pair of
chartreuse pants.
I can really see the lowly dollar
bill getting to the point where it isn't
so popular with folks. I have never
tried to spend American money in
another country, but with the change
in color, I can see American money
becoming almost as unpopular as our
nation itself.


YOU MIGHT WONDER why the
government is trying to fix something
which isn't broke, like they did the
telephone system. Why mess with
something as popular as the Ameri-
can dollar? What can be the reason for
such a drastic change.
The story from the Treasury
Department is that the new color
scheme would make the bills harder
to counterfeit. It seems that anybody
can purchase the printing equipment
of sufficient quality to produce almost
fool-proof counterfeit bills these days.
The old green bills are said by the
Treasury department to be a cinch to
copy well enough that it takes an
expert to tell them from the real ones.
I don't know how changing colors
will change this situation, but there it
is.
I guess there is nothing wrong
with printing money of different
colors. A person can even purchase
underwear in different colors these
days: even Jockey underwear.

Building Fees
Gas Company, approached the City Commission
with a request to rent space on the City's
computer until a new machine can be installed
for the utility. Shoaf said the company's
computer broke down and they were currently in
the process of buying a new one, but it would be
from six to nine months before it could be
installed.
"In the meantime, we are in a bind", Shoaf
said. "We either have to find some available
computer time to rent or get our bills out by
hand" he said.
Shoaf said the City's computer is the only
one in the county which is compatible to the

firm's present system. "We want to rent space
on your machine, taking second place over any
demands for machine operation time". Shoaf
estimated the firm would need to rent some 100
hours a month on the equipment, using Gas
Company employees to do the work at a time the
machine is not being used by the City.
Shoaf suggested a rental fee of $750 a month,
but Commissioner James Roberts felt this was a
small fee for a $70,000 machine. Commissioner
.Bill Fleming then suggested a fee of $1,000 a
month be tentatively set and take another look at
the situation in a couple of months.
Fleming's suggestion was agreeable to

Everybody needs a big
brother. A big brother is like
a close father. He is more in
tune with you in many ways.
He will do things for you that
are not as rational as help
from a father. He is more
understanding, in many
ways, than a father. Perhaps
it's because he is younger
and more closely in tune with
your problems. The fatherly
love is there, that's for sure.
At least it was that way with
me.

SMuscular Dystrophy Has


300 Panhandle Victims


Nazarene Church

Plans Special Service


Steve Gleason of Tallahas-
see, told the Kiwanis Club
Tuesday that there are 300
victims of Muscular Dystro-
phy in the Panhandle section
of Florida, from Panama
City to Tallahassee.
"There are 40 different
varieties of muscular dystro-
phy with the "Shin" variety
of MD being the most com-
mon", Gleason said.
"Shin MD affects only
males who are not expected
to live beyond 20 years of age
with the disease", the speak-
er said.
"There is no cure for MD.
We are making great strides
in the treatment, but there
are no cures, as yet", he said.
Gleason said the MD
Foundation is staffed with
mostly volunteers and uses
over 75 percent of money
raised directly for research
or to finance treatment of
victims of the disease. "We
give financial help for treat-
ment to anyone who has the
disease", the speaker said,
"No matter what their finan-
cial circumstances".


MD victims literally suffo-
cate. The disease eventually
destroys the muscles and
makes them useless. The
patient gets to the point
where the muscles which
control breathing simply
won't work anymore and he


dies.
Guests of the club were
Key Clubbers Stacey Anger-
er, Scott Howell and Jim
Norton.
Mike Blaschum was in-
ducted into the club as a new

Everyone prefers a pleasant lasting and pleasant

usually more aware of these two sensations. Somehow
if the prescription does taste, smell and look good. it
not only helps the hody to get well. but it can help to ease
the mind. give a lift to the spirit and calm the emotions.
Whenever a liquid medicine is released for public
use and the manufacturer has sent us our first supply.
we make it a point to see what it', physical properties

Sharks Pick Up Two Wins This


Week Over Mosley and Wakulla e


Tuesday night, the Sharks
barely escaped with a 65-63
win over the Mosley Dolphins
of Panama City. A last
minute shot at the buzzer by
Demetre Thomas broke the
tie and gave the Sharks the
win, as Thomas' shot, his
second field goal of the night,
went in from 10 feet out.
The Sharks upped their
record to 17-4 on the season
with the hard-fought win over
the Dolphins.
Doug Robinson paced the
Sharks in the scoring depart-
ment with 16 points while
Michael Pittman had 15 and
Josh Jenkins 13.,
Joe Truman led the Dol-
phins with 18 points.
Port St. Joe had an eight
point lead at half-time and
rode their foul-shooting abil-
ity to take the win in the
second half.

Friday night, the team tra-
vels to Vernon for a slug-fest
in their tiny gymnasium.
Saturday night, the Sharks
will be at home to Malone
and next Tuesday, Marianna
will be hosting the Sharks in
Jackson county.

,Drop In Rankings
Even though the Sharks
are playing with the intensity


they displayed at the begin-
ning of the season, they still
put together enough exper-
tise to win over a couple of
good teams this past week
and dropped a game against
a strong Grand Ridge team.
Grand Ridge has a 22-3
record for the season.
Even though the Sharks
are still playing well in the
big leagues, state pollsters
shifted, them out of the
realms of the ranked this
week, placing them back in
the honorable mention col-
umn.
Vernon, who has been
beaten by the Sharks this
year, replaced the Sharks in
the number seven slot the
Sharks had held for the past:
two weeks.

The Sharks chalked up
their 16th win of the season
last Friday night, in defeat-
ing the Wakulla War Eagles
for the second time in this
year's schedule.
The Sharks dumped the
Eagles, 61-55 in a game
which saw the two teams
fighting it out toe to toe, all
the way.
The Sharks had a narrow
four point lead at half-time
and added seven more points
to their edge in the third
quarter. Wakulla wasn't out
yet, as Shark teams have
learned in the past. The
Eagles roared back in the
last period with 18 points to
cause the Sharks some anx-
ious moments.
Durey Cadwell led the
Shark scoring with 15. points'
and Josh Jenkins added 13
points.
Mills was the Wakulla
scoring leader with 18 points.

Saturday night, the Sharks
had another loss added to
their growing string, when
the Grand Ridge Indians
edged the Sharks by three
points on the Indians' home
court.
After defeating Grand
Ridge in the Christmas tour-
nament, the Indians returned
the favor after they got the
Sharks in their back yard.
The Indians won, 62-59.
Demetre Thomas was the
big man at the hoop for the
Sharks, putting 22 points on
the scoreboard. Michael Pitt-


man added 20 points. Be-
tween the two, they scored all
but 13 of the Sharks points for
the night.
A good reason why the
other Sharks didn't score
more was Wayne Edenfield,
who snagged 14 rebounds for
the Indians and scored 20
points for his team. Another
reason was because the
Sharks made only five free
throws while the Indians
canned 10 charity points.

,Prepare Soil Properly for Garden


Start.Early If You Must Put Additives In Your Garden Plot


BY ROY LEE CARTER
County Extension Director
Healthful outdoor exercise,
a feeling of accomplishment,
and potential saving on the
family food bill are good
reasons why more and more
Floridians are turning to
home vegetable gardening.
My information for this ar-
ticle was provided by Exten-
sion Vegetable Specialist Jim
Stephens, of the University of
Florida's Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences.
Usually, the most physical
part of a vegetable gardening
project is getting the soil
ready for planting. But what-
ever you do, don't give in to
the temptation of cutting
corners on this part of the
operation. If you do-a poor
job of preparing the soil, you
can expect poor results from
your garden, even if you
work hard on planting and
P cultivation. If you're plan-
ning a large garden, you may
want to rent a rototiller, or
even a small tractor and
plow, to use in preparing the
soil. But, for a small back-
yard garden, you can do the
work with a spade or shovel.
The time to begin soil
preparation depends to some
extent on what's growing on
your garden site now. If you

have heavy weeds, or a cover
crop you intend to turn
under, you should start a.


month or six weeks before
planting. This also is the time
to add lime, if needed, or add
sulfur if it is needed.
If you've kept the garden
site fallow, or you plan to
remove all. vegetation, and
no lime or sulfur is required,
you could prepare the soil
and plant within two or three
days. However, if you plan to
work extra organic matter
into the soil before planting,
you should start two or three
weeks ahead of time.
To prepare the soil, dig
down six to eight inches, and
turn each shovel full com-
pletely over. If you are


turning in weeds, or a cover
crop, you should remove all
the woody material, because
it won't decompose very
well.
After the soil is turned,
break all clods and level with
a rake. Do this as soon as you
can, to prevent excess drying
of the soil and to keep good
soil texture. This is import-
ant, because a finely pul-
verized soil surface will
make planting easier, giving
you a better seed germina-
tion, and help insure a more
even stand of vegetables. It's
especially important to have
fine texture soil when plant-


ing small seeded crops, like
carrots.
In some soils, it's also
necessary to add some kind
of liming materials well
before planting, at the same
time you turn the soil. Lime
reduces soil acidity. Without
going into a chemistry les-
- son, lime adds calcium to the
soil and makes minor ele-
ments more available to
plants. The most commonly
used form of lime is dolo-
mite. Besides calcium, dolo-
mite provides magnesium,
another important plant nu-
trient. You really should,add
lime only when a soil test

licensed drivers to obtain a
motorcycle endorsement
without an examination if
they apply at a driver license
office before October 1. A
motorcycle test, including a
written and a driving test,
will be required for those who
do not:have the endorsement
prior to October 1st to be
authorized to operate a mo-
torcycle.
"Less than 30,000 drivers
have taken advantage of the
'grandfather clause' so far,"
said C. W. Keith, Director of


the state's Division of Driver
Licenses. "A real problem
will occur with the added
volume in our driver license
offices unless more people
come in before October 1st,"
he continued.
The law gives the experi-
enced drivers a way to
continue riding a motorcycle
without another examina-
tion, but only if they get the
endorsement before October.
"It's like a free lunch, but
you have to get it before the
kitchen closes," said Richard


Weaver, Chief of the driver
license field operations. He
joined Keith in recommend-
ing that drivers get the
no-test endorsement before
it's too late, and avoid the
extra time and inconveni-
ence of taking another test.
If you' have a license and
want tobe authorized to ride
a motorcycle, now is the time
to do it. Don't wait until the
last minute. After October 1,

complete test for a motor-

indicates the need for it. Too
much can be as bad as too
little. If a soil test indicates
your soil is too sweet, or
alkaline, you may need to
add sulfur to reduce the pH to
the recommended level con-
ducive to plant growth. The
best thing to do before liming
or adding sulfur to the soil is
consult a reputable nursery-
man, or see your County
Extension Agent.

In 1895 there were only four lives in traffic accidents. The
Reports motor vehicles.in the United count is expected to reach
States. Two of them collided three million by 1990.
on a' street .in St. Louis, Alcohol was included in
j recording the first traffic over half of those 2.4 million


Many demanding issues
confront the session of Con-
gress which has just begun.
Some qf the key issues to be
decided this year concern the
environment. The Clean Air Act
is up for reauthorization and a
heated battle is expected. Some
of the key issues concern emis-
sion standards for automobiles
and pollution from industry
plants.
We have made great strides
in recent years in curbing car

by the Giulf County Board of
County Commissioners.
Comm. Money discussed a
letter the Board received
from W. E. Waddell, Deputy
District Engineer, Florida
Department of Transporta-
tion, in reply to the Board's
letter requesting the Depart-
iment review the placement
of a cement planter on US 98

island adds to the safety
situation and does not endan-
ger the traveling public.
Comm. Money moved the
Board write a rebuttal letter
to the Department of Trans-
portation to reconsider this
assessment, stating there
has already been one acci-
dent at this site. Comm.
Branch seconded the motion

safety hazard even though

tation's Engineer says it

passed unanimously.
'Comm. Branch requested a
letter be written in the

visor Charlie Presley imme-
diately for repair.
'Comm. Birmingham dis-
cussed Martha Dowling's re-
quest for use of the county's
right-of-way for the place-
ment of a floating gas
dispensing unit at Douglas,
Landing. Upon recominmenda-
tion by the Attorney, Comm.
Birmingham requested the
Board write Mrs. Dowling
asking she furnish the Board

of-way she wishes to use is
located, with a description of
the area she needs for her
operation. The Board agreed.
The Board agreed for Bob
Davis to pick up an air
compressor located at the
Gulf County Road Depart-
ment belonging to C. C.
Bridges.
Comm. Gortman asked the
Board if it wanted to give up
the county right-of-way lo-
cated near Marty Martin's
home on State Road 22, as it
had not been graded in
several years. The Board
agreed not to give up this
right-of-way.
Comm. Gortman discussed
a letter the Board received
from Wewahitchka Commu-
nity Service Director Rodney
L. Herring, tendering his
resignation effective Janu-
ary 10, 1984. Comm. Gortman
reported that. as the Board's
appointed member, he had
attended a recent meeting of
the Wewahitchka Communi-
ty Services Advisory Com-
mittee concerning this mat-
ter and the City of Wewahit-
chka had suggested the Com-
munity Services Director's
job position description be
changed (add labor duties to
job description). After dis-
cussion, the Board agreed
that if there was any change
in the job description to be
advertised for this position
that Comm. Gortman would
not vote for the advertise-
ment but bring this matter
back to the Board for consi-
deration.
SComm. Money moved the
Board advertise to close
Cherokee Street in Oak
Grove Subdivision from a
point beginning south of Iola

124' between blocks 11 and 15

street being 60' feet in width.

public on the charges made
y Lee Munroe against Build-
ing Inspector Manuel.
Comm. Owens reported that
Building Inspector Manuel is
preparing information to be
presented to the Board and
then the Board would take
action.
Chairman Owens reported
that in the absence of Fred


Allen, Commodity Food Co-
ordinator, he had asked
Jerry Ream to coordinate
this program and was await-
ing his decision.


pollution and the question now
comes as to whether or not the
costs involved in further efforts
are worth the results. Pro-
ponents believe we can con-
tinue to reduce auto emissions
at reasonable costs and that the
effort is extremely worthwhile.
Opponents believe the costs are
becoming prohibitive and that
we have cleaned up the en-
vironment already and need not
enact stronger controls.
Much the same arguments
surround the controversy of in-
dustrial pollution. Undoubtedly
we have made progress but
there have been large costs in-
volved. Congress 'must now
weigh the cost-benefit ratio to
determine what steps to take in
reauthorizing Clear Air legis-
lation.
The issue of acid rain will be
up for consideration during the .
debate on the Clean Air Act. As
Chairman of the House Com-
mittee on Science and Tech-
nology I have been very much
involved in the effort to unders-
tand the causes of acid rain and
what we can do to prevent it.
Right now we have far more'
questions than answers. Some
are convinced that we neod to
impose strict pollution controls
on coal-fired generating plants
and that this action will alleviate
the problem. Others feel much
more research must be done in
this area before any action is
taken that could prove costly to
American' consumers.
Perhaps the most successful
environmental legislation ever
passed by Congress was the
Clean Water Act. Proponents'
and opponents alike agree that
the water quality throughout
America is substantially better
than in the past and that the
costs have not been out of line.
This Act is up for renewal again
this year and I believe the Clean
Water act will receive wide sup-
port throughout Congress.

The exit of Attorney General
William French Smith and the
appointment of Presidential
Counsellor"Edwir Meese to that
job should not appreciably
change the Reagan Administra-
tion policy on crime and criminal
justice.
I have always believed in
strict and strong enforcement of
our. criminal code 'and have
welcomed the efforts to im-
prove the justice system. No
one wants to deny an accused
person their constitutional rights
and our system takes great
pains to insure that innocent
persons are not convicted.
Appeals through the federal
court system seem endless,
however, and I have introduc-
ed legislation to limit frivolous
appears and to insure that


accident in this country.
On September 14, 1899, a
gentlemen stepped off a
street car in.New York City
and was struck and killed. He
became the first recorded
traffic fatality.
Since that time 2.4 million
Americans have lost their

justice is served.
I believe the President's
statements in support of better
laws will be well-received by
most in Congress and we may
be able to take action this year
and in 1985 to improve .the
criminal justice code.
Florida is fighting a long-
standing battle against drug
traffickers and the Florida Con-
gressional Delegation has work-'
ed together to insure federal
support for this critical effort. I
believe we must strengthen our
anti-drug laws and enhance ef-
forts to find the major suppliers'
and pushers and put them out
of business once and for all.


deaths. It is estimated that
one American is killed every
twenty minutes. One out of
every two Americans will be
involved in an alcohol related
accident in their life time.
Almost half of the 2.4
million were between the
ages of 14 and 25 years of age.
Alcohol related accidents are
the number one cause of
death for this age group.
Florida Highway Patrol
Director, Colonel Bobby R.
Burkett said, "A drunk dri-
ver is one of the most
dangerous individuals in our
society and must be stopped.
We must use every resource
available, public education,
enforcement, and the judici-
ary in this effort. The public
and law enforcement must

Eye

Openers

By Dr.
Wesley Grace


CHOOSING
EYEGLASS FRAMES
Eyeglass frames comes in
almost as many shapes,
styles, and colors as fashion
accessories. When choosing
a frame, consider with care
the color and style that will
enhance your natural good
looks and give you a sense of
individuality. Here are some
guidelines to help you:
1. -A large, rounded or curved
"frame generally looks
,good on a square face.
2. An oval or rectangular
shaped frame makes a
"round face look slimmer
and longer.
3. Eyebrows should not be
higher than the top of your
eyeglass frame.
4. Red, lavender, or other


bright-colored frames add
a glow to skins that tend to
be a little sallow.
5. Neutral colors like grey or
amber tone down a too-
pink complexion.
Another important consi-
deration when choosing a
frame is the thickness of
your lenses. Some prescrip-
tions appear too thick in an
overly large frame. Here the
expertise of your optome-
trist is very important. He
should tell you which frames
will not adequately accom-
modate the lenses you need
for seeing. There are so
many frames to choose from
that you will have no trouble
picking the right one, with
care and professional
guidance.
