Deadline

To File
Home owners in Gulf Coun-
ty have until next Thursday,'
March 1, to file to receive the
$25,000 Florida homestead
exemption on their property
appraisal, according to Gulf
County Property Appraiser,
Joyce D. Suber.
Mrs. Suber said the March
1 deadline for filing is a state
law and cannot be deviated
from by those who fail to file.
If a homestead exemption is
not filed for by that date, a
homeowner cannot take,ad-
vantage of it for paying taxes
on the property.
Those who have not filed on
property they hold title on
January 1, 1984, on which
they reside and make their,
home, must do so by the
deadline or taxes will be
levied on the full value of the
property and improvements.
Mrs. Suber said those who
have received homestead
exemptions in the past were
mailed a card expressing
their desire to register this
year for the homestead ex-
emption. She said if the card
has not been mailed back, the
property owner will have
received or will receive a
notice in a day or two
reminding him of his failure
to file for the exemption. If
the homeowner still doesn't
mail in the return card, or
fails to come by her office to
file, they will not be granted
the exemption under state
law.
Those filing for the first
time on the property they
now reside in, must come by
the Appra4soics.office o 'ile.
for their exemption.
The exemptions to be filed
on include the $25,000 home-
stead exemption, $500 wi-
dow's exemption, disabled
veteran's exemption, green-
belt agricultural filings, non-
veteran disability exemp-
tions, and tangible personal
property.
Mrs. Suber stresses that
March 1 is the final day to
file.
A homestead is considered
as a place of permanent
residence and can contain up
to 160 acres of property in one
contiguous piece.


Third Traffic Death


Wewahitchka Woman Drowns In Crash


It's only the second month of the
new year, but already Gulf County has
experienced its third traffic fatality of
the year. Linda Patterson Odom, age
35, of Wewahitchka, became that third
victim late Saturday afternoon, when
the car she was driving ran. off the end
of the road on County 381, at Willis
Landing, and ended upside down in
the River at the end of the road.
Florida Highway Patrol Trooper
said Odom was apparently trapped
inside the car as it' nosed over on its


top when it hit the water.
Debbie Burns, 29 and William
Wagner, 15, both of Wewahitchka and
passengers in the 1973 Cadillac,
escaped from the submerged car by
crawling out the open window on the
passenger side of the car. Wagner was
Mrs. Odom's son.
Hill said Mrs. Odom apparently
came upon the end of the road before
she knew it, and sailed off into the
River, The car hit the water nose first


and went end for end over on its top,
setting to the river bottom.
Alvon McGlon's wrecker service
of Wewahitchka, was trying to extract
the car from the river when a cable
broke on the wrecker wench, striking
McGlon on the back and injuring him.
McGlon was taken to a Panama City
hospital for treatment but was not
seriously injured.
Trooper said no charges were
filed.


Murder Attempt Charged


Firemen try to gain entrance to a' through dense smoke which billowed
burning home in the background, from the home of Inez Robinson.


Fire Damages Home


A home was damaged and a car
suffered only minor damage in two fires
over the past week, according to Fire
Chief Bascom Hamm.
Thursday afternoon of last week, the
home of Inez Robinson, 244 Avenue B,
suffered fire damage to the bedroom and
considerable smoke and water damage
from a blaze which set off an alarm at
about 4:30 p.m.
Heavy smoke from the fire hamper-
ed the firemen in their fighting of the
blaze for a while, but a heavy concentra-


tion of water soon knocked down the
heavy billows and allowed firemen to
put their attention on the fire itself.
Hamm said the fire apparently
started in the bedroom of the small
home. "We don't know why, but we know
where it started", Hamm said.
Monday morning, a car. belonging to
Lilliam Nelson on Avenue C caught fire
under the hood and called the Fire
Department to action. Chief Hamm said
the fire was confined to the hood area of
the car and didn't do serious damage to
the vehicle.


Mark D. Harriman, 24, of Ski
Breeze Campgrounds, is facing an
attempted murder charge in the
Saturday shooting' of Tommy Gar-
land, 26, of 256 Avenue C, Port St. Joe.
According to .the Gulf County
Sheriff's office, Garland' was shot
three times by a .22 caliber rifle as the
climax of an argument between he
and Harriman at the Ski Breeze
campsite. Garland was shot once in
the left-foot, once in the calf of the
right leg and in the right thigh.


Harriman, who lives at Ski
Breeze, about 10 miles south of Port
St. Joe, allegedly got into the
argument with Garland over a $20 to
$30 debt owed to Harriman. As the
argument heated up, Harriman al-
legedly shot Garland with the rifle.
Garland. was taken to Gulf Pines
Hospital and later transferred to a
Panama City Hospital where he
underwent surgery and is now on the
road to recovery.
Deputy James Mock and investi-


gator Phil McLeod arrested Harri-
man at his campsite and. filed the
attempted murder charge against
him. A search of Harriman's trailer,
incident to the arrest, revealed a bag
of suspected marijuana and a bag of
what was suspected to be cocaine. As
a result, Harriman was also charged
with possession of a controlled
substance.
Harriman was arraigned Sunday
before Judge David Taunton who set
his bond at $10,000.

award; Bill Altstaetter was installed as Chamber of
Commerce president; Kesley Colbert, Tommy Pitts and
Bill Sumner of Wewahitchka were sworn in as new
directors and Lieutenant Governor Wayne Mixsor spoke to
the.nearly 150 people present at the annual meeting Monday
night in the High School Commons area. m
Retiring president, Mel Magidson told the crowd in
attendance that the Chamber office, which is open only a
half day, four days a week, received an unprecedented
number of inquiries from people wanting information about
the Gulf County and Port St. Joe area this year. "The
interest of others in our area is evident by the amount of
building we had this year; especially along the beaches-",
he said.
HOSPITAL PLANS GROWTH
Tom Allerton, an executive with Baptist Hospital in
Jacksonville, owners of Gulf Pines, tdld the audience of
improvements already made to the local hospital since they

"Even now, plans are being laid for building a new
physicians office building on property donated to the
hospital by the George Tapper family on Garrison Avenue.
We plan to have an announcement very soon about the
beginning of construction of that building", Allerton said.
He said that during the past three years, the building
has been extensively renovated, the laboratory upgraded,
the surgery suite re-opened, the emergency room improved
and much new equipment installed in all phases of the
treatment centers at the hospital.
CORE HONORED
George Core, who served as Clerk of the Court for Gulf
County from 1948 until his retirement two years ago, was
presented with the Citizen of the Year award. Described by
Magidson as "A gentleman well thought of by all
citizens of Gulf County." Magidson cited Core's many years
of service and his years of civic and church activity and
support during his tenure in office and since retirement.


MIXSON SPEAKS OF PROGRESS
Lt. Governor Wayne Mixson, the featured speaker of
the evening, told the Chamber members "Florida is filling
up like a sock, from the bottom up". He predicted that the
northern portion of the state was going to grow "Whether
you want to or not". He especially predicted growth along
the coast and advised the Chamber members to "Be
specific in making your plans for development. It (growth)
can happen just the way you plan it."
The Lt. Governor said that in his travels in the United
States and abroad, "Florida is the epicenter of interest".
He quoted figures and statistics which predicted that by the
year 2000 Florida would have 17.7 millionpeople to make it
"The third largest state in the nation behind New York and
California".
In other points in his speech, the Lieutenant Governor
said the state would realize $900 million more in tax revenue

Should Commission



Break the Law?


Charles Bostick let it be known
last Tuesday that he was going to
sue if the County Commission
didn't do his bidding and re-
arrange the voting procedure and
'Commission district make-up of
the county.
No matter that Gulf County
: was now -following state and
federal law in the exercise of both
voting and public servant proce-
dures. The public law and its
dictates evidently didn't matter to
Mr. Bostick at all with his demand
for single member districts in Gulf
County last Tuesday.
In other words, Mr. Bostick
told the Commission, in effect, no
matter if it is the law, I don't like
Sthe system, and I want it changed.


Along with this pronouncement
came ,the veiled threat to go to
court if the changes weren't made,
3 knowing full well the County
Commission has no authority to
violate state law in such an
S elementary procedure as voting.
We suspect Mr. Bostick knows
. full well he had just as well get his
- suing boots on and head for the
" courts. We're not privy to the
deliberations of the County Com-
:mission until they are made known
i in public meetings, just like
everyone else. We don't know their
- private thinking on this or any
other matter. But, if we had to
-guess we could come pretty close to
telling you what they will do. They
:""will decide to continue to abide by
::state and federal law in this
matter.
They would be foolish to do



i tBac


a If you thought the movement
_:;!was dead to seek a Constitutional
:.Amendment requiring the federal
governmentt to spend only the money
-it has coming in each year, think
: ,agaih.
This past week, with the
announcement barely out that the
deficit for fiscal 1985 will be an
estimated $180 billion, the move
started to gain momentum again.
The federal deficit is a prime
example of the dangers of single
member districts. Each and every
Congressman is concerned- only
with his district primarily and with
the good of the nation secondly. For
the past 40 years, the good of the
nation has been suffering terribly.
To the tune of over a trillion


otherwise.
Anyone who would expect them
to do differently would also be
foolish.
There may be good reason to
try to get the law changed to allow
for single member districts, so Mr.
Bostick and "his people", whoever
they are, can be assured of a seat
on the County Commission. Could
Mr. Bostick be covetous of this seat
for himself?
There are many black citizens
in Gulf County and there are a few
blacks who would be treated as
extra-ordinary citizens with extra-
ordinary rights. Come to think of it,
there is more than a few white
citizens of this stripe also.
Mr. Bostick was waxing elo-
quent :about how his district,
Williamsburg Subdivision, was ig-
nored by the County Commission.
If the area is ignored, it is done in
private. Every time a representa-
tive from Williamsburg has ap-
peared before the County Commis-
sion with a need, it has been met.
As Commissioner- Branch pointed
out last Tuesday, "We have bent
over backward to meet your
needs". Other black areas in the
county (and white as well) should
hope they received the attention
Williamsburg does.
We think Mr. Bostick is being
out of line to ask for something
which is presently against state
and federal law. If the system is
changed in the future, then the
Commission will no doubt change
with it, without the threats of Mr.'
Bostick.


k Again!


dollars'
The movement only needs the
approval of 34 states to require
Congress to propose such an
amendment for the ballot or call a
Constitutional Convention to con-
sider the spending curbs.
Already 32 of the required 34
states have approved of the bal-
anced. budget proposal, something
which doesn't sit too well with most
of us, but apparently something we
need if the nation is going to remain
solvent.
It seems to us that if a person.
has enough on the ball to be elected
to Congress in the first place, he
should have enough character to
guide our,nation into living within
its means, rather than being forced
into it.


c A MAN'S WORLD


BSD Fed Up

* .L ,:*''. BY SHAD PHANTRY
J


I'm fed up!
For you folks that ain't
from the South, being fed up
is when a person has had
about all he can take. It's like
choppin' wood in the dark.
Enough is enough!
And I've just about had all
I can take.
There's one good thing
about being a writer. A
writer can vent his frustra-
tions. on his readers. If I
didn't have a friend in the
world (and sometimes I
wonder) I could get a load off
my back just writing this
article. That's the main
reason I write it, I think.
Anyway, there's a lot of
things I'm fed up with and I
want to tell you about some of
them.
First of all I'm fed up with
my boss. Who does he think
he is? Just because he signs
I


my paychecks and owns this
paper, he thinks he can tell
me what to do. Well, I've got
news for him. I'm fed up!
The next time he leaves out
some of the marginal words
(misspelled or otherwise)
I'm going to quit!
That'll break his heart.
He'll probably worry about it
for about two minutes.
My wife is a wonderful
person but I'm fed up with
her, too. It's not a real big
thing but it's meaningful just
the same. I'm certain she
does this particular thing just
to annoy me and I'm fed up
with it.
Every time I leave town
and come home she has put
the toilet tissue in the holder
upside down. It's enough to
drive a preacher to cuss! I
have to reach up under the
roll and pull down. Each time


I do the tissue doesn't tear
off. It just keeps running onto
the floor into a huge ball.
Sometimes it takes me a
half-hour to roll it back up.
I'm fed up with my kids,
too!
My kids think I have the
key to Fort Knox. Every
Monday morning they hit me
up for lunch money. They
also worry me to death about
money for clothes. I bought
each of them a suit of new
clothes last Christmas. They
are never satisfied.
Just the other day my
oldest son asked, "Dad, could
we have bacon and eggs for
breakfast one day, just like
you?" I gave him a whippin'
he won't soon forget! He's a
bit nervy to be sixteen.
"I'm also fed up with the
guys I play golf with. What a
wild bunch of sandbaggers!


They are going to learn what Anyway, about one-thirty
it's like to live without ole' on Saturday I heard a horn
Shad one of these days. blowing outside my house. I
Just last weekend I decided looked out and there was a

Counselors Lauded

For Assistance


Student Services Week,
February 20-24, is a time in
Florida schools to observe
and thank some of the
personnel in the halls of
learning who are serving
students in a very busy,
worthwhile manner outside
the classroom. In the five
Gulf County Schools, stu-
dents receive support and
assistance through the work
of Guidance Counselors.
Those persons are:
Sarah Riley, Port St. Joe
High; Kathryn Corley, Port
St. Joe High; .CoJean Burns,
Port St. Joe Elementary;


Fletcher Patterson, Wewa-
hitchka High; Carol Kelley,
Wewahitchka Elementary;
and Barbara Eells, Highland
View Elementary.
Another important facet of
student services is the help
given to pupils through the
school psychology program.
Beverly McLeod is the itiner-
ant school psychologist who
works in all of the Gulf
County Schools evaluating
referred students and coun-
seling with students who are
experiencing emotional prob-
lems which interfere with
successful school work.


Tulips Blos
JUST AS SURE AS YOU are
sitting .there reading this column,
Spring is on the way. As a matter of
fact, it's right around the corner,
according to the signs which are
abundant on every hand.
I'm not a groundhog. I'm not a
: wooly caterpillar. I'm not a squirrel;
:,.nor do I have a trick knee which acts
-up with the change of the season. I'm
-noteven a grumpy bear just waking
:up from hibernation, even though my
wife says I sound like one on occasion.
Nevertheless, I'. predict that
-Spring is just a hoot and a holler
-away.
: Even though I see unmistakable
'signs of the coming of Spring, my
:predictions are helped to a great
measure by looking at the calendar
:and noticing that one week from
:today, it will be March. Everyone
knows that on March 21, the first day
'of Spring officially arrives.
Here in the Panhandle, spring
arrives a little early, just as winter is
a mite late in getting here. Usually it
doesn't arrive on December 20,
althoughh it did this past year.

could very likely be terrible again.
When I get to writing about the
weather, it is usually a sure fire way
to change it..
If the change comes with this
epistle, I'm sorry. The weather we
had last week, up until the moment
this was written, was delightful. I
don't believe you could even beat it in
Hawaii, the land of the fabled eternal
Spring.


Japanese tulip in full bloom.
Japanese tulips are funny looking
shrubs. They bloom in the greatest of
magnificence in the spring of the
year, even though they don't have a
single leaf on them.
This Japanese tulip I saw was
doing its duty in announcing to
everyone that Spring is either here or
coming in just a day or two.


bush in Bo Bray's front yard is
shedding the petals from its blooms. I
have to use Bo's camellia bush as the
evidence since he has what was
probably the only camellia bush in
town which didn't get frozen around
Christmas time, just when the camel-
lias were building their blooms for the
annual first of the year show of color.
Bo's bush has bloomed and is now
through for the year.


SPRING IS AS SURE as night and
day, when the baseball teams head for
Florida for their Spring training
activities. This week, the teams began
moving into Florida and playing a
game or two of pepper and inter-
mural games.
Pitchers began to loosen up the
old soup bone this past Monday as the
pitchers and catchers reported for
training.
When the baseball teams become
active it's as sure a sign of spring as
the blooming of the first crocus or
whatever those things are.
Baseball teams heading south for
their first of the year training are as
regular as the appearance of the
ground-hog and probably a lot more
dependable as a prognosticator.
SOME THINGS NEVER change,
whether or not Spring is ushering in a
new year and a new season, which has
the beginning of new plant life as its
attraction for the masses.
One of the things which doesn't


Almost
change is that the Atlanta Braves are
starting their spring practice wonder-
ing what they are going to use for
pitchers this year.
With one pitcher released and
another in jail, that doesn't leave very
heartening prospects for the coming
year, even if this revelation comes
during the Spring, the hopeful season.
Manager Joe Torre, ever the
optimist, vowed the Braves were a
better team this year, even with the
remainder of the pitching they have..
We all know there is Craig McMurtry
as a starting pitcher. From that point
on, the Braves' pitching seems to be
more of a Torre -pipe dream than
reality. One would almost believe it
was Torre who was in the Dominican
Republic with the funny dust rather
than Pascual Perez.
BUT THE NATURE of Spring is
that it brings hope. Let us hope that
Torre is right and Len Barker and
Ken Dayley can truly shore up the
middle of the Braves' staff.
If they can, it will be a joyous
Spring for the south.

King Mackerel


Being Studied


Gene Raffield, local mem-'
ber of the new state Marine
Fisheries Commission, told
the Kiwanis Club Tuesday
the commission would be
making .an effort to try to
control the marine resource
through future deliberations.
"I want to point" out, how-
ever, that nothing we do will
provide another fish in the
future. Our purpose is to use
more wisely the marine
population available to us."
Raffield pointed out that

the big emphasis today is on
King Mackerel. "Twenty-
five years ago, it was the
snook", he said. "It will be
the commission's duty to
study' the King harvest, de-
termine where the harvest is
coming from and take steps
to keep the fish from being
destroyed", Raffield said.
He pointed out that the new
commission has a lot of
power. "All marine harvest
problems will be handed to us
to come up with a solution
for", the local seafood pro-
ducer; said: "The Governor
and Cabinet can veto what
we do, but they can't change
it. If they don't like our future
regulations, the only thing
they can do is to over-rule us
on them".
Raffield said the new com-
mission will have jurisdiction
over both sport and commer-
cial fishing.'
The commission is funded
by a $25.00 license levied
against anyone who sells
their catch. "If anybody sells
their catch, whether it is a
sportsman with too many or
a person who fishes for a
living, he must have that
$25.00 license", Raffield said.
He pointed out that there
have been 25,000 of the
licenses sold to date. -
The authority of the com-
missionr extends for nine-
miles out from shore in the
Gulf of Mexico and three
miles from shore on the
eastern shore of Florida.
Beyond those limits are
waters which are governed
by the federal government.
The club also presented Ian
Barker, a representative of
Gulf Coast Community Col-
lege with a $1,000 payment
toward a $10,000 perpetual
scholarship the club is build-
ing at Gulf Coast.
Guests of the club were
Barker, Tom Gibson and Key
Clubbers, Robert Taylor,
Steve Howell, Brandy Wood
and Stacey Angerer.

Eye
Openers
By Dr.
Wesley Grace


TINTED LENSES
Q. Why do people wear tinted
lenses all the time?
A. They do so by choice.
Lightly tinted lenses, or
gradient lenses, were first
introduced to help eye-
'glass wearers who were
sensitive to indoor light.
They were never intended
to replace sunglasses,
because they only cut out
20 percent of the light in
the atmosphere.
Today, in addition to giv-
ing sensitive eyes a more
comfortable way to see,
tinted lenses have become
fashionable. The tint used
in the lens may have vari-
ous gradations of color
that gradually increase,
toward the edges, in tone.
We do most of our seeing
out of the clearest or
leasttinted section of the
lenses.
The most commonly used
tints are brown and grey.
Blue is also popular. The
tints can be flattering to
your face and eyes. They
help hide wrinkles around
the eyes and dark sha-
dows under the eyes. Yet
no one looking at you can
tell that the lenses are
tinted, if the color is pale.
WARNING: Don't wear
lightly tinted gradient
lenses where darker gra-
dient sunglasses should be
worn. A lens must screen
out from 75 percent to 90
percent of sunlight if
glasses are ,to give yorii
S eyes any sort of protection
from harmful sun rays.
Lightly tinted lenses can't
do that.

Number Is

Key to

Future


P.M. A person's Social Security
number is the key to his or
her future protection against
Sthe loss or reduction of
income because of retire-
ment, disability, or death,
Ann Kinard, Social Security
IC representative for Gulf Coun-
ty said recently.
This is because future
Social Security benefits will
be based on the record of
earnings kept under the
M. Social Security number dur-
M. ing a person's working life-
M. time.
M. Many people have the
M. same name, but each person
has his or her own Social
Security number. The num-
ber singles .each person's
record from some 200 million
others.
h A person should show his or
her Social Security card to
13" each employer and make
sure the number is copied
correctly for the employer's
M. records. This will help avoid
M. any mistakes as earnings
M. will be reported under the
correct number.
A persons should keep a
record of his or her number
in a safe place so that he or
she can apply for a replace-
ment card only if he or she
loses the card or there is a
change in name.
A person applying for a
replacement Social Security
card must show evidence of
identity.
It is against the law to use
A. another person's Social Se-
A. curity number or a number
not assigned to you. It is also
against the law to use a
Social Security number ob-
tained by giving false infor-
mation on the application.
Penalties include a fine, a
jail sentence, or both.

is not enough he would like it

Too Cold to Cultivate?

Not If You Like Experimentation with Seedlings


BY ROY LEE CARTER
County Extension Director
Although it may be too cold
to tackle gardening chores
outdoors, you can get a head
start on your spring garden
indoors by growing vegetable
transplants from seed. Grow-
ing your own transplants can
be a challenging and satisfy-
ing activity. Not only is it
economical, but it also allows
you to experiment with varie-
ties that may be hard to find
locally.
Tomatoes, peppers, egg-
plant, broccoli, collards, cab-
bage, onions and cauliflower
usually are started from
transplants. In addition, wa-
termelons, cucumbers, can-'
talopes, squash and other
vegetables can be started
from seed indoors for earlier
yields.
Start your plants indoors,
beginning eight weeks or
more before last date of the
average frost in your area
depending on the varieties
you are growing. Do not start

your plants too early; they
will be long and stringy, and
do poorly when planted out-
doors.
Seeds can be started in
purchased seed flats, peat
pots or starter pellets. Or you
can utilize cans, pots, egg
and milk cartons, and styro-'
foam cups. Whatever type of
container you select, be sure
to punch holes in the bottom
to provide good drainage.

Walk scheduled for March 31.
Dr. Sullivan, currently on
leave from Tift College
where she is chairman of the
Department of. Modern Lan-
guages, is a broker-salesper-
son at ERA Parker Realty in
Mexico Beach.
Her articles on the Florida
Panhandle appear each
Spring in a special travel
section of the Atlanta Journ-
ial-Constitution. Other .travel
articles have been published
in Travel Magazine and Skin
Diver Magazine.
Dr. Sullivan has also
promoted the American Can-
cer Society and the American
Heart Association.
Her husband, H. Perry
Sullivan, Jr., is editor of the
Engineering and Services
Quarterly at Tyndall AFB.
Their son, Sean, is a seventh
grader at Port St. Joe High
School. Dr. Sullivan has
recently performed substi-
tute teaching duties at Port
St. Joe High.
"Those of us who were
fortunate enough to have.
healthy children need to
remember that birth defects
occur in one out of every 12
children. We need to lend a
helping hand to those who
need us," said Dr. Sullivan.
The 1984 March of Dimes
Superwalk will leave the
Panama City Marina at 8
a.m. March 31 for a 20
kilometer walk inspired by
celebrities, music, and a
festival atmosphere.
"Even if you can't make
the whole walk,, we encour-
age everyone to do the best
he or she can to share with us
the joy of victory and the
agony of defeat," said Dr.
Sullivan.
To sign up for the Super
Walk, participants may call
Dr. Sullivan at the March of
Dimes office at 785-6460 or in
Mexico Beach at 648-5777 or
648-5301. Super Walkers are
encouraged to wear colorful
costumes which identify
their group, organization, or
business.


damping-off, causing them to
turn brown and die. Reduce
this problem by avoiding
overwatering, and by using
proper sanitation practices,
and treated seed. Always use
sterile soil or planting medi-
um rather than garden soil.
Sterilize garden tools and
pots by dipping them in a
solution of one part house-
hold bleach and nine parts
water; rinse thoroughly be-
fore using.
Most vegetable seed should
be sown in rows in the seed
flat, pressed into the growing
medium thoroughly. Allow it
to drain before planting seed.
Sow t vo or three seed per
inch of row, lightly cover
with the medium and mist.
Cover the container with a
sheet of plastic to diffuse the
light and hold in moisture.
Set the covered container
in an area where the tem-
perature is stable. Most
vegetable seed will germi-
nate well at a temperature of


75-80 degrees F. Check peri-
odically to make sure the soil
has not dried out.
As soon as the plants in the
seed flats have developed
their first pair of true leaves,
they can be transplanted to
individual pots. Water the
seedling thoroughly before
transplanting, and be careful
not to disturb the roots.
Space about two inches
apart.
Plants should be "harden-
ed off" before being transfer-
red outdoors. To do so,
withhold water, lower the
temperature, and increase
ventilation. You also can
place plants outdoors or in a
coldframe on sunny days
prior to planting.
Try to transplant your
seedling on a cloudy day or in
the late afternoon. Water
thoroughly before trans-
planting. Do not place the
transplants too deep; set
them at the same depth they
were in the container.

THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla. THURSDAY, FEB. 23, 1984


Who has ever heard of
students teaching school?
Totally wacko, right? Not
necessarily!
."Student-Teacher Day"
will take place this Thursday
at St. Joe High School. The
National Junior Honor Socie-
ty has sponsored this annual
event in which seniors, with
the assistance of Junior
Honor Society members, will
be resuming the roles of the
administration for a day. All
seniors seem to be, for some
unknown reason, reminis-
cing back to see just how
much the underclassmen
have put them through.
Strange as it seems, the
Seniors don't see it as that at
all. We're all looking forward
to a super day of being boss!

The Science Fair for St.
Joe High was held last week.
After a lot of hard work,
students are recognized for
their efforts. Congratulations
to the following winners:
Ninth grade, first place,
Anne Tramontana; second
place, David Staab; third
place, Ppul Nedley;
Tenth grade, first place,
Tiffany Carr; second place,
Tony Kemp; third -place,
Matt Baysden;
Sea Oats and Dunes Gar-
den Club, $10, Lynne Wilder;
Port St. Joe Garden Club,
$10, Chris 4owen;
Port St. Joe Garden Club,
first place, Tiffany Carr.

Majorette tryouts for the
1984-85 squad will begin this
coming Monday, February
27. All girls are reminded to
work on their solos. Also,
Good Luck to everyone!

Congratulations to Mrs.
Carol Cathey, who has been
nominated as PSJHS teacher
of the year 1983-84.

As the season rolls around,


the spring Jr.-Sr. Prom is
approaching. The Junior
Class, who is responsible for
the Prom, has decided on the
theme "An Evening in
Paris" to center decorations
around. The date of the Prom
has been set for April 28, so
fellow classmates, I guess
that means we should begin
thinking in terms of PROM-
dresses, tuxes, flowers,
PLANS....!

After a three game losing
streak, including last Tues-
day's loss to Marianna, the
St. Joe Sharks Basketball
Team turned around to get
back on the winning track
again last, Friday night
against Havana. In the earli-
er-than usually-scheduled
game, the Shark gym was
filled with enthusiasm and
support as we defeated the
Gladiators by a score of
71-61. ;

Members of the Port St.
Joe Band will be travelling to
Marianna to compete in the
district Honors Band Compe-
tition this Thursday through
Saturday. Good Luck every-
one. "Blow 'em away!"'

Students: If you are be-
tween 15 and 19 and want to
know more about Interna-
tional Youth Exchange, see
the Guidance Office bulletin
board.

Five students from Gulf
County will be hired to work
at St. Vincent National Wild-
life Refuge this summer. If
you are age 15 through 18,
you qualify. See Mrs. Corley
in the Guidance Office for
further information.

That's it once again on
your update of St. Joe High's
latest. As editor of Shark
Scoops and a student of THE
High School, I want to have
