Attorney Advises State Constitution Mandates Present Votin


Gulf county won't be jumping
right into the business of setting up
single member Commission districts
in Gulf County; nor will they be
ignoring the request to do so by a
group of Blacks from the Wewahitch-
ka area, headed by Charles Bostick.'
Bostick, accompanied by four
ladies, appeared before the Commis-
sion at their last, meeting and
requested that Gulf County have its
September elections suspended until
the county could be divided into single
member districts. Bostick said he was
making the request because "his
people" had been neglected in the
scheme of things in Gulf. County.
Bostick said his district was neglected


and charged that Commissioners
didn't pay any attention to them or
their needs except around election
time.
Answering Bostick that the Com-
mission bent over backward to meet
the needs of Bostick's area, chairman
Everett Owens instructed Board
attorney William J. Rish to research
the law on the Commission's power to
create the new style districts and
report back to the meeting held
Tuesday night.
As a result of his research of the
law, Attorney Rish gave the Commis-
sion a written answer Tuesday night
which pointed out that the Constitu-
tion of the State of Florida required


that county commissioners be elected
by the voters at large in Article VIII,
Section 1.
Rish's written opinion pointed out
that in one federal court case in the
fifth circuit, it was specifically ruled
that county commissioners do not
have the right to take up the task of
setting up single member districts.
The attorney's opinion recognized
that there have been single member
districts established in Florida, but
pointed out that in the most outstand-
ing case, that of Escambia County,
took five years in the courts to
accomplish and portions of the case
are still before the Supreme Court.
Rish advised, that such a lawsuit


doesn't necessarily take this long but
advised it would take at least two or
three years to work out a plan in
federal court.
Rish pointed out four points which
the courts used in deciding the
Escambia county case.
Rish said it was his feeling the
Florida Legislature would consider
the matter of single member districts
within 60 to 90 days and after that
time, the matter could possibly be
addressed in a practical and reason-
able manner.
TO CREATE COMMITTEE
Bostick was, not present at the
Tuesday night meeting but a half
dozen Blacks were present who didn't


say anything pertaining to the matter.
Clarence Monette of Port St. Joe said
he thought something could be done to
solve any problems which existed
but said he was at the meeting only as
an observer.
Chairman Owens said, "I wish
Mr. Bostick was here. I would like to
name a committee to make a study of
any problems which we may have and
try to work them out." Owens said he
would go ahead with assembling the
'committee after contacting Bostick
for suggestions he might have for
people to serve. Owens remarked, "If
he doesn't go along with that plan,
then he'll just have to do what he
wants to do".


tg System

Bostick has threatened to enter a
suit against the county if the Commis-
sion didn't accede to his request and
establish the single member districts.
As for the present time, the
Commission has decided it will go
along with the dictates of the State
Constitution and continue to elect
Commissioners at large.
"We might have to take a look at
re-districting the Commission dis-
tricts", Owens stated, "but we can't
do that until next year. The law
dictates that we reconsider our
Commission districts after every cen-
sus and it must be done in a year other
than an election year".


Toll Free Phone Calls for Gulf?


County Commissioner Jim-
my Gortman wants the Coun-
ty Commission to explore the
possibility of having all of
Gulf County placed in one
telephone exchange, elim-
inating long distance charges
for calling between Port St.
Joe and Wewahitchka
"Other counties have tele-
phone service like this and I
would like for Gulf County to
make a try at securing it for
our people7'.
Attorney William J. Rish
told Gortman the emphasis
would have to be placed on
contacting the Public Service
Commission for permission
for the local phone company
to provide i-he service. Rish
*' said, 'T"ll be glad to meet
with local telephone comp-
pany officials with you to
solicit their support in such
an approach to the PSC. It
may be feasible for the
company to make such a
change and their help with
the Commission would be of
considerable help."
The Commission will ap-
proach the St. Joseph Tele-
phone and Telegraph Com-
pany about the subject within
the next few days.
KENT RESIGNS
Doug Kent requested the
Commission to meet three
conditions for his position as
Mosquito Control Director,
or he would have to tender.
his resignation.
Three months ago, the
Commission allowed Kent to
fill in for the County Sanitar-
ian position when the state
Health Department dismis-
sed Gulf's Sanitarian. Since
that time, he has been
serving in both positions.


Tuesday. Kent asked the
county to give him a more
active role in management of
the Mosquito Control Depart-
ment, provide him with a
helper in his Health Depart-


ment work and increase his
salary by $50.00 a week.
Since the state department
sets up criteria for the
sanitarian to operate under,
the Commission felt they),


had no authority to meet
Kent's requests
Kent then said he would
have to resign his position as
Mosquito Control Director,
effective on March 8.

Fire In Campbell's Drugs


A fire of undetermined origin filled
Campbell's Drug Store with smoke Tuesday
morning at about 11:00 a.m.
According to owner Carl Guilford, the
cause of the fire was not known. "I. have a
back room in which I store my records and
other papers, where the fire was located. We
just smelled smoke and found papers in the
room burning. There is no electricity in the
room or other possible causes of a fire."
Guilford said he kept the fire beat down
with a small siphon hose he attached to a


water faucet until the Fire Department
arrived on the scene.
The druggist said he had a new
extinguisher but had emptied it a few days
ago when a car caught fire on Reid Avenue
near his business. "I had called the
company to pick up the extinguisher and
re-fill it, and he came in to pick it up about
the time the fire was put out."
Damage to the store was confined to the
one back room where minor burn damage
was experienced.

An arrest warrant was

The warrantfwas for Nathan-
iel Williams, age 34, of Fort
Walton Beach, charging him
with committing the armed
robbery of Costin's Insur-
ance Agency last August.
On Wednesday,'August 3, a
lone black male entered the
local agency, ordered the two
clerks into the restroom at
Gunpoint and then stole $410.
Williams is currently being
held in the Holmes County
jail on similar charges.
Investigator McLeod made
S a trip to Bonifay to obtain
photographs and fingerprints
on Monday. He then obtained
the warrant.

CIVIL DEFENSE AUTO
For two years. Bill Lamar,
Civil Defense director, has
been asking the county to
replace the 1971 Ford station
wagon the department has
been using Lamar has said
the vehicle is rusted out,
especially inside, and the
mechanical part of the ve-
hicle "is worn out"
Lamar, who was not pres-
ent at Tuesday's meeting,
left the key for the CD vehicle
the Courthouse, inviting any
or all of the Commissioners
to test drive the station
wagon
None took him up on his
invitation.
Commissioner Branch said
he felt it was not the
responsibility of the county to
furnish Lamar, who lives in
Wewahitchka, with the coun-
ty CD vehicle to drive to and
from his home.
Sheriff Ken Murphy said
Lamar was in the Courthouse
on the job two and a half days
a week.
Branch solicited the feel-
ings of the rest of the Board
on his contention and 'all
agreed the county vehicle
should stay at the Court-
house.
Branch then suggested the
Chairman, the Sheriff and
Lamar get together and
discuss transportation needs
and suggestions for arrang-
ments for use of Sheriff'
Department vehicles. "Even
if we end up buying another
vehicle, I think it should be
used in this manner",
Branch stated and the other
Commissioners agreed,

glass panes were blown out by high winds reported as a result of the storm.


Cold, Wind, Rain, End


Ideas of Early Spring


Only the weather today will tell
whether or not March came in like a lion
here in Gulf County. Regardless, the
windy month was introduced with a
lion-like introduction this week when
cold, blustery western and north-western
gales struck Gulf County and the
Panhandle bringing traces of sleet and
some few reported flakes of snow. ,
The sleet wasn't enough to be seen on
the ground and the snow was even less,
but the winds were evident and the chill
had people stoking up their fires again
and dragging out coats which had been
put in the closet after nearly two weeks of
spring-like weather.
Temperatures dipped into the 30's
STuesday night, but didn't reach freezing
as it was predicted it would. Wednesday
night was predicted to be even colder, but
bright sunshine Wednesday may even
make the weather man wrong on that
prediction, too.
While the temperatures weren't to
the freezing point, the high winds were
causing damage all through the county,


as well as littering yards with limbs, pine
cones and other debris.
Here in Port St. Joe, the winds
damaged a few signs, lifted a few
shingles and blew pieces off a few
awnings. One of the most serious
instances of damage reported was by
Danley Furniture Company which faced
a bleak Tuesday morning with four of
their front show windows blown out by
the high winds. The windows were
shattered by the wind gusts sometime
during the night Monday or early
Tuesday morning.
Manager Bill Franklin said the store
didn't suffer any severe damage inside
other than some water damage on a few
pieces of furniture which were sitting
near the window. Sheets of plywood were
quickly acquired and put up in place of
the shattered glass to keep out as much of
the rain as possible.
A storage shed behind the home of
Shirley Dixon, on Marvin Avenue, was
blown over and demolished, also.


Wants Dead Lakes Study


Board Chairman Asks State Agencies for Reports


Forest A. Revell, chairman
of the Dead Lakes Water
Management District has
called for a complete profe-
sional study of the Lakes by
four state agencies in action
taken Monday of this week.
Revell has requested, by
letter, that the Department
of Environmental Regula-
tion, the Department of Nat-
ural Resources, the North-
west Florida Water Manage-
ment District and the Game
and Fresh Water Fish Com-
mission make the studies.
Revell's letter states, "The
Dead Lakes Water Manage-
ment District requests a
complete combined profes-
sional study of the Dead
Lakes by the above four
departments of state govern-
ment. This study should show
what action this Board
should take for the best
long-range interest of con-


servation of water and fish."
Revell states at the end of
his letter, "I am confident
this Board will follow your
professional advice".
The hot contention over
. whether or not to remove the
Dead Lakes dam has been
over the claim by the dam
opponents that the structure
is stifling sport fishing in the
lakes and causing them to fill
up with silt and noxious
weeds because the dam
impedes the natural flow of
the Chipola River which
- flows through the Dead
Lakes.
Opponents of the dam
claim they have evidence
from such studies as are
being requested by the Ma-
agement Board which sub-
stantiates their claim that
the lake is dying. Former
chairman of the Manage-
ment Board, Jim Bozeman,


has stated, "The lakes are
already dead".
When the dam was first
placed at the south end of the
Dead Lakes over 20 years
ago, influential citizens from
all over the state went to bat
for the project, supporting
surveys, studies and support
by conservation groups to
construct the dam.
The dam gained support
when Jim Woodruff Dam at
Chattahoochee was complet-
ed causing fears it would
seriously affect the level of
the lakes.
A program conducted at
the Lakes in 1954 drew
important officials from as
far away as Washington, D.
C. to consider its construc-
tion.
Now, the situation is re-
versed. A diversified group
of people want the dam
removed and the Manage-


ment Board and property
owners along the lake stand
virtually alone to wanting the
dam left in place.
Those who live along the
shores of the lake have
multiplied over the years,
even if dam opponents claim
the fish haven't. Before the
dam was built, there were 50
electric meters reported by
Gulf Coast Electric along the
shores of the lake. Today
there are 595 meters.
Voters of both Gulf and
Calhoun counties will ex-
press their opinions on the
future of the dam on March
13 when they will cast a straw
ballot either favoring or
opposing removal of the
dam.
Neither the Gulf County
nor the Dead Lakes Water
Management Board has its
future relationship with the
dam mandated by the out-
come of the election.

Safe Driving Can


Save

A couple of weeks ago, it was
'mentioned at the County Commis-
sion meeting that several palm
-trees south of town on C-30 should
'be cut down adjacent to the
'highway, after two men were killed
:in an automobile accident. Even
though we are among the number
who thinks this one of the prettiest
-stretches of road in Gulf County,
:the nagging idea still crept into our
:thinking that cutting down at least
:some of the trees might be needed
-in order to make the stretch of road
safer for drivers.

After sleeping on the idea
,overnight, we're gratified that the
County Commission listened to the'
few people who objected to the
cuttingg down of the trees.
It is true that over the past
several years, two or three cars
,have hit one or more of the trees.
.The two deaths recently were the
first we remember from cars
37unning into one of these beautiful
palms.
; We're not weighing the value of
a human life with the value of a
couple of palm trees. There would
be no contest there. If cutting the
trees would cause someone to live,
They would have to be cut in our
.estimation.

"that the trees are the cause of

accidents in this area. The road is
straight, the paving surface good.
If a person drives on the road, he
will not hit the trees. If he gets off
the road, he is liable to hit anything
or just spin out of control, roll over
into a ditch, or have any number of
things happen .to him just as
deadly as striking one of the trees.
There have been more cars hit a
certain utility pole a little farther
south on the same road, than have
struck the trees. Nobody has
suggested cutting down the utility
pole, simply because it is in the
utility space alongside the road.
The bannisters on nearly all
the bridges and culverts on C-30 are
closer to the road driving surface
than are the palm trees and we
have heard no voice suggesting the
bannisters be removed. They too
are just as dangerous a hazard as
the palm trees are.
The fact is, everything on the
highway is a driving hazard if the
driver doesn't stay alert and keep
his vehicle under control at all
times.
When one drives down any
street where cars are parked, you
are coming closer to obstacles
which can cause serious accidents
than you would be driving .down
C-30 in the vicinity of these stately
palms. It all just boils down to
observing safe driving habits.

a winner.
Here in Florida, we will go
through this early exercise of
choice: in about two weeks, and we ,
would hope that more than 85,000 of
our estimated 10 million population
shows up at the polls. The Iowa
performance is almost like throw-
ing a party and nobody came.
Campaigning for the primaries
isn't exactly designed to draw up
partisan camps. The primaries are
more or less a popularity contest
with the real political fighting to

come only after both parties have
named their champion: One goes to
'the primary polls with mostly the
information that "My opponent is a
good guy, since he's a Democrat
(or Republican) but I would be
better for you and the country".
That isn't much to make a
decision on, but each of us must
make a decision, this year, and we
had best be making it, whether
we're ready or not.

Just this past Sunday our
Sunday School class was
discussing some of the prob-

wisdom and candor, asked
the following question. "If

Bostick's arguments'as the
ravings of a rabble-rouser.
Although I wasn't at the
meeting, I'm sure everything


went on as politely as usual.
I got the impression in the
third paragraph (Quote: In
other words, Mr. Bostick told
the Commission, in effect, no
matter if it is the law, I don't
like the system, and I want it
changed.) that Mr. Bostick
sticks in your craw, some-

How Do You Tell the Professional Athlete from the Amateur Athlete?


- THIS IS MY LAST reference to
the beautiful srping' weather we're
having in the middle of our Panhandle
Winter.
The weather is such a pleasant
surprise to all of us, it must have
affectedd all the area editors in the
lame manner it affected me. Almost
all of the exchange weekly newspa-
pers I received last week had their
editors writing about the weather. All
were penning words one hardly ever
hears from an editor. If you had them
Ull together in person, one could
almost expect them to go tripping off
through the daisies, if their words
were any indication of their attitudes
toward the weather.
Editors--especially the weekly
variety-don't usually do that.

CLERK OF THE COURT Jerry
Gates has had a late blossoming into
the mature adult world. I know this is


true because of a statement he made
last Thursday morning.
Jerry has discovered what causes
babies and that mothers go through a
right smart bit of pain having babies.
Jerry's comments, at the time were,
"I didn't know that", when speaking
of the miracle of birth.
Jerry is embarking on his 40's and
be has the miracle of birth discovered.
Jerry, you see, became a father
last week. His wife presented him
with an eight-pound boy and he was
there to witness the delivery. At no
time did he wish he could change
places with his wife, but he is more
sympathetic toward women after the
happening in which he played a minor
part. I understand he held his wife's
hand.
I won't go so far as to say Jerry is
out of his head with joy over the birth
of his son, but just don't you get near
him for the next week or so, or you will
have a cigar pressed into your hand
(female or male) and will hear the
story of how babies are born in
grinning detail.


I WENT TO Jacksonville a couple
of weeks ago for a two day indoctrina-
tion course by Xerox prior to being
made a representative for the firm in
Gulf, Calhoun and Liberty counties..,
I left town before daylight Thurs-
day morning and, following explicit
instructions, had no trouble finding
the Barnett Bank Building in Arling-
ton where the class was being held;:
That's unusual for me. If I don't get
lost two or three times in a large city,
I feel my day has not gone as it was
supposed to.
Friday, I left about 4:40 "To beat
the traffic". Everyone else was trying
to "beat the traffic" in Jacksonville
that day.
I found out that in Jacksonville,
you just follow the flow and if it
happens to go where you wanted to go,.
you're lucky. I was lucky. After about
20 minutes of driving, surrounded on
all four sides by cars, there, suddenly,
was Interstate 10 looming right ahead,'
in my lane.

folks in the big city.

sides that, they are new and
won't bend easily.
After I had one leg out (it
took about ten minutes) I
realized I had made a
mistake. It would have been
much easier to take off the
boots, take off the dungarees,
put on the other pair of jeans,
put the boots back on and be
on my way.
Do you think I stopped and
took off the boots? No sir! I
went right on trying to get the
other leg out with the boot on.
Ten minutes or so later I
finally removed the other leg
from the dungarees, with
boot still on.
Now, I reasoned, I had
passed the point of no return.
It would be a waste of time to
remove the boots just to put
on the other jeans. With that
thought paramount in my
mind, I jammed my left leg
into the other pair of jeans.
Fifteen minutes later, sweat-
ing and exhausted, I called
my wife for help.
So far, I had managed to
get my left leg through and
my right foot about half way
down the right pants leg.
There it was with my foot
sticking straight out like a
ballerina. The position of my
foot caused a severe cramp
to develop in the tendon of
my big toe and I couldn't
move it.
My wife rushed in to see
what was wrong. I asked her
to pull the pants leg back
down so I could take off my
boot. She pulled but the boot
(with my foot in it) was
stuck.
"Pull harder!" I scream-
ed. "My foot is killing me!"
With that she put her foot
on the edge of the bed and
gave a mighty pull. She
pulled so hard that it pulled
me off the bed and I hit the
floor with a hearty "thud."
At the same time my head hit
the bed post. and almost
knocked me unconscious. My
rear end hurt from hitting the
floor and I sprained my right
wrist trying to catch myself
when I fell. And my foot, boot
and sock were still in the leg
of the jeans.
After my wife had taken a
pair of scissors and cut the
new pair of dungarees off my
leg, I took off my boots, socks
and shirt and went backlto.

Letters:

Proud Of Our
Commission
I was proud of our stout-
hearted county commission-
ers when in January they
decided to attack the killer
palms that line County Road
30. Their actions .were going
to be heroic because so many
lives were lost to them. Our
stalwart county commission-
ers were cutting them down.
But they didn't count the
protectors of the past. This
pack of do gooders had their
reasons to protect the trees,
However, I can not under-
* stand the logic.
For some reason the coun-
ty commissioners weakened
and 'reversed! themselves.
They ran from their responsi-
bility. The innocent would go
unprotected.
Maybe .it is time for a
change? Are there any red
blodded persons out there?

County
(Contipued from Page 1)
(he Commission:
-Appointed Commissioner
Gortman to work in the
planning of a 10th anniver-
sary celebration for the Dead
Lakes State Park.
-Received a notice from,
the Department of Transpor-
tation that the- Oversareet
Road woold not be turned
back to the county until it is
widened; resurfaced and the
bridge :at Overstreet is re-
placed. The letter estimated
all this work would be done
by fiscal 1986.


Auto Theft
Ronald Janies Laurimore,,
age 28, of White City, was
charged with auto theft in an
incident that occurred at-
Dempsey's Lpunge when a
1970 Ford Pinto was stolen,
recently.
The vehicle swas later re-
covered in the ditch on State
Road 71 south of WeWahitch-
ka. The vehicle belonged to
Robert Beatty of Wewahitch-
ka.
The incident was investi-
gated by Deputy Frank Mills
of the Gulf County Sheriff's
Department and Chief Jona-

ka Police Department. *


Letter
(Continued from Page 2)

tsk. Honestly, now, Mr. Ram-
sey, what difference does it
make? I found it a childishly
inane argument against his
views. It seems to intimate
Mr. Bostick's character, or is
this your judgement of the
man personally?
Instead of waving red flags
around Mr. Bostick, and
flatly denouncing his grie-
vances, why didn't you ex-
plore the services provided to
the Williamsburg Subdivi-
sion, or probe the causes and
effects of Single Member
Districting?
Personally, I'm not sure
that Gulf County is right for a
Single Member District Sys-
tem. to .work effectively;
however, unlike your editori-
al; I'll Iattempt to explain
why.
First, the idea is good for
an area with heavy popula-
tion: Each board member
would represent an equal
number of people (10,000,
100 000,, 1,000,000 or what-
ever) who actually Vote. This
would enable the Represen-
tative to get a viable feed-
back from his constituency
so he could act accordingly.
-In Gulf County, what is the
percentage of registered vo-
ters who actually vote?
Second, when Single Mem-
ber Districting is in effect, a
problem' is built into the
system. How to divide the
people iup into precincts?
Four districts with 25 percent
.of the 'population each; ten:
with 10 percent each? Also,
where are the lines separa-
ting the Precincts to be
drdwn? Gerrymandering
could effectively eliminate
the Blacks' Voting Power by
cutting -chunks out of: the
North Side of Port Saint Joe,
and Williamsburg Subdivi-
sion. I am quite sure that this
would not be what Mr. .
Bostick is looking for, but an
unprincipled Representative
would have the power to do
this;.
'Third, the present system
would be,much more effec-
tive if the people actually got
out! and voted. Mr., Bostick,
your cause would be much
m9re effective if you organi-
zed a voting campaign. Try
to get the Blacks to vote
enuiasse.upon,the issues you
are for and against. The real
turnouts at the polls for both
Black and White folks would
shame Thomas Jefferson.
Run for office, then push
forf the, Black vote. I, just
might vote for you myself. I
always favor the underdog,
especially when he tries 'to.!
change what he sees is
wrong. Sincerely,
Kevin D. Byrne

Eye


By Dr.
Wesley Grace


GLAUCOMA IS
DANGEROUS
Glaucoma, the, build-up of
abnormal pressure in the
eyeball, is the second major
cause of blindness in the
western world. In its earl-,
iest, most controllable stage,
there is generally no pain
and no overt symptoms. By
the time pain or diminished
vision propel the patient intd
'the doctor's office, damage
has already been done to the
eye.
The best defense against the
ravages of uncontrolled
glaucoma is a regular eye
examination-especially if
you're over 35. In addition to
measuring visual skills, a
thorough eye examination
for anyone over 35 should in-
clude:
1. An internal eye examina-
tion in which some signs of
glaucoma may be detect-
ed.
2. A visual field test which
measures changes in side
vision, the first area af-
fected in most glaucoma
cases.
3. A TONOMETRY TEST:
Using an instrument call-
ed a tonometer, your opto-
metrist measures the
amount of pressure in the
eyeball. The test is
painless and takes only a
few minutes.
Early treatment of glau-
coma, generally with the use
of drops, can usually control
pressure in the eye and pre-
vent permanent loss of vi-
sion.

I ?CIVILIZATION'S DISEASE
DENTAL CARIES (Cavities)
Fermentable carbohydrate foods with a high sugar
sucrose content are believed to be the chief cau.e of
producing dental caries. Cutting down on sweets and
other sucrose-containing snacks is one of the first rules
B of dental health education. Strengthening the hard
glossy outside enamel of the tooth is also important,
and this is helped bhy the fluoridation of drinking
water.
The next preventive measure is in reducing, by 1y
vigorous brushing, the amount of dental plaque that
accumulates at the base of teeth and gum junction. .
Dental Caries start underneath this plaque. The I
brushing also helps to eliminate inflammation of the
gums and reduce calculus which could lead to disease
of the gums. We carry a complete stock of dental' aids.

Sharks Win District Title


Lose Out In Regional Competition Tuesday


The season is over for the
Sharks' basketball team.
After knocking off Blounts-
town and Havana in the
District play-offs last week
end, the Sharks were
slaughtered by the Jefferson
County Tigers Tuesday night
in Region 2-AA competition.
The Tigers completely dom-
inated the Sharks in a 90-58
win in Monticello.
The Sharks had lost earlier
by 12 points to Monticello, but
the coaches and team-still
felt they had a good chance to
defeat them Tuesday night.
The Tigers bounded off to a
23-13 lead at the end of the
first quarter and just kept
-piling it on. The Tigers put
the icing on their night's
performance by scoring 31
big points in the last quarter


alone.
The Sharks were a cold-
shooting team Tuesday
night, having only two play-
ers scoring in double figures.
Michael Pittman led. the
team with 16 points. Michael
Harris barely got into the
double figure scoring bracket
with his 10 points.
The team's regular high
scorers other than Pittman-
.Doug Robinson, Durey Cad-
well and Josh Jenkins-were
shut down by Jefferson.
The Sharks ended' their
season with a '20-8 record
after 'going to January 24
without a single loss.
Score by quarters:
The Tigers had six players
scoring in double figures,
with Sam Jones leading the
pack with his 17 points.

The Sharks got to Jefferson
by defeating the Hdvana

trict finals here Saturday
night.
Josh Jenkins scored a
season-high 24 points to pace
the Shark victory. Doug
Robinson scored 21 points,
Durey Cadwell had 17 and
Demetre Thomas pumped in
10 for the Sharks.
The Sharks defense held
the Gladiators hot-shooting
Fred Hannah to only 13
points. Reginald Williams
scored 21 points to lead the
Havana team scoring.
After both teams missed
their first few shots, Havana
jumped off to a two point lead
and held' it for less than a
minute. It was the only time
in the game in which the
Gladiators were ahead. Sev-
eral times they made a run
for the lead, but the Sharks
always rallied to up their
lead by up to 11 points.
The Gladiators caine to
within three points late in the
third quarter, which was
their most serious threat in


the second half.
It appeared as if the Sharks
were in trouble early in the
game when Mike Pittman
came up with three fouls
against him in the first
quarter. Chris Butts came
into the game replacing
Pittman, and played a good
game until the last three
minutes, when Pittman came
back in.
Havana had defeated the
Sharks in the conference
tournament earlier in the
month.

REMOVAL OF THE

We have joined with others who seek the removal of this destructive
dam from the Chipola River and have agreed to lend our financial
support to this effort. The citizens of Gulf and Calhoun Counties will
have the opportunity to express their wishes on this issue by a non-
binding vote in,the March 13, 1984 election. We will expend member-
ship dues collected from the publication of this ad for the purpose of
educating the public before this election about the environmental
status of the Dead Lakes and Chipola River system. We will thus be
facing the issue and supporting the return of the Chipola River Basin
to its natural state. By joining us, you expand our membership and
strength so that we might together stand as a watchguard for, and
over, our greatest North Florida resources its people, its rivers,
lakes and bays. Help us tell the true story about the. Dead Lakes
Dam. Why it was built, how it was financed, and how it has destroyed
the natural beauty and productivity of the Chipola River Basin. Dona-
tions in any amount in addition to membership dues will help in this
effort and a full financial accounting will be made.

the 63 making the trip the
excitement started out when
they boarded the C-9 Jet
aircraft at Tyndall Air Force
Base for their first flight. On
the trip out a refueling stop
was made at Kelly Air Force
Base at San Antonio, Texas
which was one and one half
hours after takeoff. From
Kelly to San Diego it took
another two and a half hours.
Arrival at San Diego was at
2:30 in the afternoon in bright
sunshine with the tempera-
ture in the seventies. The
remainder of the first day
was spent getting settled
down and adjusting to the
time zone changes.
Thursday morning a visit
to the Naval Air Station
Mirmar was made. The
highlight of this visit was a
presentation made by Fight-
er Squadron 154 (VF-154), the
Black Knights, who provided
a detailed rundown on the
Navy's F-14 fighter including
a close up look at this
aircraft. Everyone came
away with a feeling of pride
and admiration for the pro-
fessional attitude this squad-
ron displays.
After lunch a short bus ride
was made to the Naval
Station San Diego for a most
enlightening visit aboard a
Tank Landing Ship, the USS

nature. Of course there were
many pictures taken, and if
you are interested in viewing
some of these feel free to

and do so.
In closing, the NJROTC

school board, the school
administration, and all
teachers in supporting them
on this tremendous trip.
Forthcoming activities in
March and April include a
field day at Tallahassee on
March 17 in which they will
compete against eleven other
Florida and Alabama
schools.' A second field day
will be held on March 27-28 at
Tyndall Air Force Base in
competition against Bay

North Carolina April 23-27,
will give the cadets a look at

around the entire ship going
out of their way to answer
any and all questions which
arose. Captain Smallwood
and the entire crew of the
Frederick provided a realis-
tic insight of LST operations.
On Friday morning a visit
to the Fleet Training Center
gave everyone an inside view
of some of the training naval
personnel receive. Class-
rooms were visited and the
training equipment in the
laboratories was viewed.
This included a look at a new
shipboard machine gun that
fires 3000 rounds per minute.
Friday afternoon was de-
voted to viewing a recruit
graduation including an im-
pressive parade of flags from
every state in the Union.
Saturday and Sunday was
spent visiting both the world
famous San Diego Zoo and
Seaworld. Weather for these
two days could not have been
better, and everyone had a
great time. Most were as-
tonished at the actual physi-
cal size of the zoo and the
thousands of animals found
there. Many pictures were
taken and much was learned
about the animals of the
world. Seaworld proved to be
just as interesting and ex-
citing as the zoo with its
.many exhibits ,and show
performances put on by the
trainers and the animals.
Even though there are many
things to see and do at
Seaworld; the star of this
entire extravaganza was
"Shamou" the killer whale.
Monday was devoted to
classroom presentations on
methods of transferring
equipment from one ship to
another while at sea, and in
handling aircraft aboard
ship. In both cases everyone
had the opportunity to prac-
tice and put to practical use
those things learned in the
classroom.
Evening hours were spent
aboard the Naval Training
Center and were devoted to
such activities as bowling,
video arcade, swimming,
and of course, catching up on

,of Marine Research in St.
Petersburg. If a tagged crab
is caught, call with the exact
'location and date of capture,
the sex of the crab, and the
tag number. There is a $2
reward for each tag.
FDNR biologists tagged
more than 13,000 blue crabs
in Tampa Bay during 1983.
Many female crabs migrated
northward and 25 percent of
those were recovered from
Apalachee Bay. Several
crabs were recaptured as far
away as Mobile Bay, Ala-
bama. No tagged crabs were
recovered south of Tampa
Bay.
Tagging in Apalachee Bay
is only one of several efforts
undertaken this'year by the
FDNR Bureau of Marine
Research. During 1984,
FDNR and Mote Marine
Laboratory biologists will
also tag blue crabs in Sara-
sQta Bay, Charlotte Harbor,
Goodland, Everglades Na-
tional Park, and the Florida
Keys.

'84.
This is the largest joint,

more than one service from
more than one country.

annual exercise of its kind,
involves the deployment, re-
ception and employment of
U.S. and Republic of Korea
forces responding to possible
contingencies in the Korean
theater.
Staged in South Korea, the
purpose of Team Spirit is to
exercise, evaluate and im-
prove procedures and techni-
ques to be employed during a
defense of South Korea. It is
designed to increase combat
readiness of all participants,
with emphasis on joint and
combined operations.
White is a tank systems
mechanic with the 25th Inf p-
try Division at Schofiild
Barracks, Hawaii.
He is a 1982 graduate pf
Port St. Joe Junior-Senibr
High School.
