With the attention of the rest of the state and
nation rivited on the outcome of the nation's fourth
Presidential preference. primary election here in
Florida next Tuesday, the attention of Gulf County
voters will be directed toward a straw ballot
question on the voting machines.
Gulf County will be voting on the hotly debated
question of whether or not the majority of the
voters in the county favor removing the Dead
Lakes dam. The question was placed on the ballot
in January when the County Commission gave its
approval for the straw ballot at the request of the
opponents of the dam. Proponents of the dam tried
to place a second question on the ballot-on the final
day for filing, blt the Commission turned them
down. The proponents. question would have asked
if voters would favor leaving the dam in place if it
was found to be helpful rather than harmful to the
ecology of the Lakes.
Even with the hot issue of whether or not to
remove the dim, Tuesday's vote will not be a
mandate to any committee or government group
to take the dam out. The question on the ballot
merely tests local sentiment for the future of the

City Adopts Permit Fees


"No Other Choice" Gunn Advises Board


The City Commission una-
nimously adopted an ordi-
nance, Tuesday night, which
would increase the building
inspection fees to the same
schedule used by the county,
increasing the charges in the
various 'inspection categor-
ies.
. The change was made at
the suggestion of building
inspector, E. F. Gunn, who
told the Commission at the
time that state requirements
were getting tougher, more
complex and more demand-
ing. "It's going to cost you
more to run your building
inspection program and you
must run it according to state
specifications or be open to
all kinds of litigation", he
told the Commission.
Tuesday night, Gunn also
reported on a recent building
inspectors seminar he at-
tended- last week in Tampa,
in which the city's responsi-
bilities were spelled out in
the building inspection pro-
gram.
Gunn said failure to oper-
ate the program to specifica-
tions set out by the state is
causing several counties and
cities in the state to face
costly lawsuits. "Apalachi-
cola is one of those cities.
They have a $1 million
lawsuit pending against them
right now, simply because
there is 'a question as to
whether or not they failed to
operate the inspection pro-
gram properly", he said.
Gunn pointed out that
failure to operate an approv-
ed inspection program
causes a county or city to lost
its eligibility for its people to
borrow money from a feder-
ally insured agency to build
homes.
S "It's either provide an ap-
proved building inspection
program or go to court to try
to prevent these things from
happening", Gunn summed
up.
Port St. Joe eased into the
building inspection program
on as economical a level as it
could and meet state require-


ments some four years ago.
Since that time, the program
has grown more complex
and, according to Gunn's
report, more restrictive for
the builder.
GRANT RATE INCREASE
With virtually no objec-
tions being expressed and
support good for receiving
the ESPN sport channel in
Port St. Joe, the City Com-
mission granted a rate
increase request for Gulf
Cable TV Tuesday night.
Bob Newman, owner of the
firm, had' asked for an
increase of $1.45 per month
on the base charge for
service and an increase to
$10.00 for a re-connect fee.
Newman is presently
charging $8.50 for basic
service, which includes all
three major networks, an
educational channel from
FSU in Tallahassee, Ted
Turner's WTBS in Atlanta
and the CNN news channel.
He is currently charging
$5.00 for a re-connect fee.
Under the new rate struc-
ture, Neuman has said he
will provide the ESPN sport
channel and another channel,
probably CBN. Neuman said
he is in the process of trying
to come to a contractural
agreement and arrangement
for receiving equipment for
both stations and will prob-
ably have them on the air by
at least the first of June.
GRANTS DENIED
The City had entered
applications for two federal
grants for Port St. Joe, and
were notified this past week
that the grants had been
turned down.
The two separate grant
requests had been filed by
Julian Webb, a grant writer
from Chipley. One grant
requested money to furnish
low cost housing for the north
Port St. Joe area and build-
ing of a center for Senior
Citizens.
Both requests were turned
down because of a lack of


funds. Both projects were
declared eligible, but insuffi-
cient funds were available to
fund all requests received.
OTHER BUSINESS
In other business matters,
the commission:
-Agreed to employ Lloyd
Pitts as public works super-
intendent on a trial basis.
The move was a preliminary
to the retirement of the
present superintendent, Dor-
ton Hadden, who will retire in
October of this year.,
-Agreed to allow St. Joe


Natural Gas Company to
remove 49 feet of sidewalk on
Long Avenue to expand their
parking lot. Permission was
granted provided the com-
pany paved the area back to
make a safe and convenient
surface for pedestrians.
-Paid contractors at the
Wastewater Treatment Plant
a total of $36,149.22 for their*
monthly work estimate. E. F.
Gunn advised the Board that
J. W. Meadors Company was
winding down its job at the
plant and beginning to move
out..

found in !Palatka, back to Port St. Joe, where it
was signed in 1838, for placement in -the
Constituti on Museum here.

Statewide, some 139,707

Dead Lakes


Request for Stud

Hindsight is always easier than
having to initiate the thought or
ideas at the proper time.

Forest Revell, chairman of the
Dead Lakes Water Management
District, has called for a complete;
professional study of the lakes b'y
four state agencies. These agencies
include the Department of E n-
vironmental Regulation, the De-
partment of Natural Resources,
the Northwest Florida Water 1Van-
agement District and the G ame
and Fresh Water Fish Commis sion.
The only thing we find wrong with
Ievell's request is that it wasn't

The only decision which will
come forth on next Tuesdayy is an
emotional one. Even the Dead
Lakes Water Man.agement Board
members will coist their votes
based on emotion rather than cold,
hard facts, as should be the case.

tion being shown and presented by
both sides is designed and edited to
support their particular claim.
That's part of the game, but there
are legion of us who wish to cast
our vote for the future of the Dead
Lakes and their integrity, and not
based on what one group or the
other happens to want.
The information we have seen
seems to tip the scale of balance for
removal of the dam. Even though
we are not expert on the life and
well being of lakes, we are
cognizant of the fact that when the
Dead Lakes Dam is removed (if it
is) it will be gone forever. Gulf
County will never again coerce any
state or federal agency into build-
ing another one, of whatever
design.

We realize, too, that the vote
next Tuesday is a straw ballot and
is in no way, binding on any board,
group or agency to do the bidding of
the majority of the votes cast.
However, the boards, agencies or
groups involved, will- find them-
selves hard pressed to ignore the
outcome of Tuesday's vote, what-
ever the result may be.
We welcome the request for the
study. We will go ahead and vote
our convictions Tuesday, but we
hope the bodies charged with the
responsibility of life or death for
the dam will stall off any final
decision until the results of the
study is presented; provided it is
ever held.





rHas New Look

primary shuffled up the favorites
pretty good and came up with a
whole new line-up.

While Mondale seemed to be
playing hard on his past recogni-
.tion as Vice-President under the
Carter administration, it appears
as if the majority of the people
remembered those days in a light
other than the one desired by Mr.
Mondale. They remember the four
years of chaos in our federal
government.
While Mr. Mondale has relied
on his past near residence in the
White House as a means of gaining
public recognition, those years
may prove to be Mr. Mondale's
biggest liability rather than his
biggest asset.

I COULDN'T BELIEVE some of
the statements, tactics and questions
the lawyers for the defense were
allowed to use against that lady up in
Massachusetts who was allegedly
gang raped on a pool table in a New
Bedford bar last year. Her plight
shocked the nation that such a thing


raped the men.


If such a crime were to happen
here in Florida-or Gulf County-I
would hope our judges would frown
upon defense attorneys bombarding
the victim with such questions as
whether or not she had received
welfare, cheated on welfare, sought
treatment for a rape previously,
purchased cigarettes or not, had a


drink, or whatever.
It would seem the only question at
hand would be whether or not the
woman was an actual victim of the
crime and if the accused were the
ones who did it.
The questions being hammered
relentlessly at this young victim are
probably the reason at least half the
rapes in this nation go unreported.
The ladies don't wish to go through
what the Massachusetts victim is
facing.
You can't blame them.

THE MARINES OF Camp Le-
jeune came under fire from a
Wilmington, North Carolina news-
paper as being too lax with their
security. They felt the Marines at the
camp were open to the same kind of
terrorism as the Marines faced in
Lebanon.
The paper sent reporters in the
camp with two vans loaded with boxes
which were supposed to resemble
explosives.


The Marines said they knew all
about the operation and just let.them
have their fun. The Commander of the
base said, "the Marines did not want
to invest the time, money arid
personnel to counter something that
was not an actual threat to the base."
I think the Wilmington newspaper
would better serve their subscribers if
they would stress the fact that we
don't need the type security here the
people must have in Lebanon just to
survive.
In America, it is still safe to leave
home without locking your doors in
some places. The Marines in Camp
Lejeune probably feel perfectly safe
in their compound. The best part is,
that history has proven them to be
safe with no fear of terrorists.
The Wilmington reporters had
better be glad extra-ordinary security
precautions aren't necessary in the
United States. In Lebanon the report-
ers and their vans would have
probably been blown to smitherines
by the Marines or Lebanese trying to
protect themselves from terrorists.

on my mind. He said, "I don't
like or trust those dog-gone
lussians!"
I thought that was a very
profound statement and
since he had been over there.
with them, fighting the Ger-
mans and all, he should know
what he was talking about.
As it turned out he did know
very well what he was
talking about. Quite a few
people didn't think he did
(including the President of
The United States) but he
was right as "Gee" is to an
old plowing mule.
The latest development in
Russia really bothers.me. As
we all know, their leader,


Yuri Andropov, recently pas-
sed away. I was not glad to
see him die because I knew
there would be someone just
as bad or good (according to
who you compare him to) to
take his place.Anyway, I had
just learned to pronounce his
name (Uree And-drop-off)
when he kicked the milk
bucket.
Who did they put in his
place less than four weeks
later? If you think it was Cliff
Sterling you are dead wrong.
It was Konstantin Chernen-
ko. How's that for a good,
easy to pronounce Russian
name?
The Russians' are masters

of deceit. They do everything
they can to confuse the
world. Just look at some of
the names of their past
leaders. There was Leonid
Brezhnev, Nikita Khrush-
chev, Yuri Gagarin (the first
Russian in space) and Alek-
sei Kosygin; What on earth
happened to people like Jo-
seph Stalin? There's nothing
wrong with a simple, short
name like that. The Russians
just like to rake life compli-
cated for the rest of the
world, I think.
It's not only peoples'
names that they try to
confuse us with. Have you
ever looked at some of their
mountains and rivers? Here
are a few you can try to
pronounce. There', is Mt.
Sekondo, the Narodnaya
Mountains, Syr Darya, Ust-
Urt Plateau and many, many
more. You won't find a
Mississippi River or a Yel-
lowstone Park in Russia,
that's for sure!
There are a lot of other
things I want to say about the
Russians but time or space
will not allow me right now.
Right now I must stop and try
to pronounce K-O-N-S-T-A-N-
T-I-N C-H-E-R-N-E-N-K-O. I
sure hope his health is good.
Wish me luck!

little risk to the astronauts in
operating their backpacks.
. In fact, both were originally
given the option of walking in
space while connected to a
safety line. These men de-
cided, and rightfully so, that
it would be much safer
without a safety line because
under weightless conditions a
safety line twists, turns,
rises, falls and often tugs on
the user. Unless the user is
quite careful, his safety line
can wrap around add dan-
gerously entangle him.
If either astronaut had
experienced a malfunction
on his backpack, it would
have been possible or the
other astronauts to bring him
back to the Shuttle. Also, the
Space Shuttle, itself, could
have maneuvered over to
pick up the astronaut4he way

All this is not to say that
these astronauts,' and all

to say that the space Walks
were a lot safer than they
seemed...but I hardly blame
you for not wanting to leave a

ACelebrity Roast Planned to I Didn't Know the Cat Was Mine


Raise Funds for Sr. Citizens


BY JERRY REAM
Well, Gulf County, it's that
time of year again! Frivoli-
ty! Storytelling! Good food!
Class entertainment! And
friends turning on a friend!
That's right, it's time for the
2nd Annual Gulf County
Citizen of the Year Celebrity
Roast!
Last year 'bout this time,
George Tapper listened to
long time friend J. C. Belin
refer to him as "Molly
Hugger", as he revealed
aspects of Tapper's past that
very few people had know-
ledge of...beyond that, Dr.
Joe, Bob King, David Carl
Gaskin, Nolan Treglown, Ted
Cannon, and others, took
their turns at embarrassing
the "celebrity roastee". Only
one man spared Mr. Tapper
certain "personal insights"
and humorous slights. This
man, well known for his
quick wit and appreciation of
a humorous situation, might
have known the future may
hold an opportunity for repri-
sal. Well, as fate would have
it, George Y. Core spared his


friend last year, now the shoe
is on the other foot because
George Core is the Gulf
County Citizen of the Year,
and George Tapper gets his
shot this time around.
Now, we all know George
Core is one of the nicest men
you'll ever meet, but that
won't stop his friends from
"roasting" him with many
stories long forgotten and
some of recent vintage. Fact
is, David Carl can't seem to
wait...he's ready to tell all
right now!
This year's Celebrity Roast
will be held at 7:30 p.m. EST,
on Saturday, March 24, in the
Commons Area of the Port
St. Joe High School, and this
year Sheriff Ken Murphy has
offered the use of his excel-
lent speaker system, so even
the folks who come late will
be able to hear every joke
and "share" Mr. Core's
moment in the spotlight.
This second annual event
is, of course, a fund-raiser
sponsored by the Gulf County
Senior Citizens Association to
honor the person selected by
the Chamber of Commerce

SENIOR CITIZENS

SHEARING TESTS SET

At

CampbellPs Drug Store
Reid Avenue @ Port St. Joe

Hearing tests using electronic equipment
will be given March 9, from 10:00 a.m. to
1:00 p.m. Licensed hearing aid specialists
will be here.
These tests have been set because many
senior .citizens suspect they have trouble
hearing and understanding. Use of the
latest electronic equipment will indicate
whether there is such a problem and if it
can be electronically helped. Some of the
causes of hearing loss will be explained,
and diagrams of how the ear works will be
available -for those senior citizens in-
terested.
Everyone should have their hearing tested
electronically at least once a year.
Everyone having trouble hearing clearly,
even those who wear hearing aids and
those told nothing could be done, should
have a test with the latest method of hear-
ing correction.
The electronic hearing tests will be given

kindergarten and first grade
students to "catch" good
manners in the Wewahitchka

Miss Joyce Quinn, one of the
lunchroom duty teachers,
selects a student from each
of the six classes, who has
demonstrated the best lunch-
room manners during the
week. The selected children
receive a crown and a
certificate, and are photo-
graphed by Mrs. Tweeta
Gaskin, one of the first grade
teachers. The photographs
are displayed on the bulletin
boards in the school lunch-
room. The children wearing
the crowns this week are:
Tranum McLemore, Jessie
Pickron, Will Sumner, John
Gibbs, Marlene Mitchell, and

Several times in the past
one of the Ramseys has ask-
ed me to write an article or a
series of articles on various
subjects considered to be
vital to the upkeep and safe-
ty of our nation. They felt a
little insight as to the real
problems we face in the
world was needed, and say
they have sure picked the
right guy cause I can give
as little insight as anyone.
Now, I don't remember
which Ramsey talked me in-
to this, of course there so
many of them .. I bet our
government is spending
billions of dollars a year in
foreign aid to some little
country somebody's never
heard of that ain't* got as
many people in it as we've
got Ramseys. And listen
now, I'm just talking about
the Ramseys that live in
Port St. Joe. We are not
counting those family
members living in Chat-
tahoochee, Atlanta,
Oklahoma, Utah, Minnesota
or wherever. I even heard
the other day that there are
Ramseys living in St. Joe.
that don't even work at The
Star. *(I have always main-
tained that ain't sounds bet-
ter than are'zant)
Speaking of cats, I've
got to tell you this; about
eight years or so ago a cat
showed up at my house.
What kind? You must be kid-
ding, it was a cat. No, wait a
minute it was a white kind. I
don't know much about cats,
I don't like cats, I told my
first wife not to feed that cat,
the cat would not leave. For
eight years this cat would
not leave. My son Josh nam-
ed the catSue-Cat, not Sue or
Cat but Sue-Cat. Heck, I
figured that would be O.K. as
it could have been a girl. I
don't know much about cats.
We went away one summer
for two months and as we hit
the Gulf County line on our
return I was doubly pleased;
(1) to be home again (2) the
cat would be gone. Well, son
of a gun, you know how this
is going to end we turned
into our drive and there sets
Sue-Cat up on the porch like
"I kind of took care of the
place while'you were gone".
Cathy started buying Tender
Vittles.
The boys, No. 6 (Josh) and


right in the eye and said
"Sue-Cat, don't you ever
die!"
Respectfully,
Kesley
P.S. Next time I'm going to
tell you either about John
Glenn's chances in the up-


coming Democratic election
or about the time my wife
"bumped" into our gate as
she was backing out of the
driveway. Hershel Hill of the
Florida Highway Patrol
estimated she was doing bet-
ter than 45 mph when she hit
the fence.


No. 14 (Jess) loved old Sue-
Cat and Mom was keeping it
well fed and one cold night a
couple of winters ago they
talked me into letting the cat
stay in the house. In other
words, the cat was doing
O.K. Now I had never spoken
to this cat as I'm not in to
catalog, plus you
remember the cat didn't
belong to me.
Then the cat got sick. I
mean real sick. It would not
eat or drink and finally got to
where it could barely move.
No. 6 said "daddy do some-
thing", No. 14 even said
"please", my wife cried. I
took Sue-Cat to the
veterinarian.
Boy, howdy, those folks at
the vets, now they liked old
Sue-Cat. They treated that
cat like a real person,
several shots, two IV's, 3
days in the hospital (we got
to see Sue-Cat during
visiting hours) and old Sue-
Cat was on the road to
recovery. Sue-Cat is a girl;
those people know more
about cats than I do. They
told me that Sue-Cat was ex-
tremely old and needed lots
of care and attention. They
also told me $80.00. 80 bucks
and I didn't even know the
cat was mine. Tender Vittles
come in eight delicious
flavors, sometimes we mix
them, depends on the mood
of dear old Sue-Cat. She
sleeps in bed with me most
nights although I don't insist
- I leave that strictly up to
the cat. She goes outside only
when it's warm and the sun
is shining. We got her a flea
collar and she takes
vitamins. You get yourself
. an eighty dollar cat and I'll
bet you'll take care of her,
too. Just the other day I sat
down in the floor with old Sue
(me and her are on a first
name basis now), looked her

In addition to the Presidential candidates,
:voters will be asked to vote on delegates to the
'National Convention, who are pledged to the
:various Presidential candidates. The winning
delegates will be pledged for two roll call votes at
the Convention, but after the second roll call, may

for March

:of Dimes
Bay County Sheriff Lavelle
:Pitts has been named honor-
:.ary chairman of the 1984
:March of Dimes Superwalk
;slated for March 31 at the
3Panama City Marina.
This will mark the fourth
year that Sheriff Pitts has
:~alked to benefit the March
J)f Dimes. Last year, his wife
'nd two children joined in the
effort despite bad weather.
"It was so windy and
miserablee last year that my
seven-year-old was really
dragging at the end, but he
:inade it," said Sheriff Pitts.
He supports March of
~3imes activities because the
organization'ss aim is to era-
.ldicate birth defects and he
has a special attachment to
childrenn. "Too many people
-ust push kids aside. I guess
that's why I take up for
Ihem," said Sheriff Pitts.
Gulf Countians are encour-
figed to participate in the
Superwalk because the Gulf
Pfoast Chapter of the March
bf Dimes in Panama City
serves the children of Gulf
County.

: CHOOSING A CONTACT
:, LENS PRACTITIONER
S. How do you. find a
q qualified
lens practitioner?
A. It is best to start by ask-
ing friends who wear con-
tact lenses successfully
about the optometrist
who fit them. You can
also telephone your local
optometric association
and ask for recommenda-
tions in your area.
Find out how experienced
the practitioner is and
whether or not he carries
soft, hard, and gas per-
meable lenses manufac-
tured by several different
companies. Your best fit
may not be the brand that
is advertised on televi-
sion.
Very often the optome-
trist himself will teach
you how to insert and
remove your new contact
lenses. Just as often, that
job may be left to an
assistant. The assistant
should be cordial, clean,
patient, and careful when
., working with you. In ad-
S edition to learning how to
insert and remove your 5'
lenses, you should be in-
structed in how to care
for your lenses and pro-
vided with a starter kit
for doing so. Patient
education is an integral
part of a successful con-
tact lens fitting practice.
Be sure that your op-
tometrist can be reached in
emergencies, or makes pro-
visions for emergency cover-
age. Be certain that he will
see ybu at frequent intervals
after the initial fitting, and
that he will try other lenses
on you if the initial pair do
not prove comfortable.

In addition to the pledged delegates, there are
nine delegate names on the ballot who are
uncommitted. Voters are allowed to vote for five
candidates.
Delegates who are listed on the ballot as
committed to Askew, Cranston and Hollings, will
now be considered as uncommitted delegates in
addition to the nine listed uncommitted delegates
on the ballot.
There are also 12 names on the ballot of
candidates who would be alternate delegates to
the convention, along with their commitment for
support.
LOCAL OFFICES
In addition to delegates to the national
convention, the ballot contains three local
questions to be decided. The local questions have
to do with candidates running for a position on the
county Democratic Committee. Three of the
county's 13 precincts have contested races for the


posts.
Each of the County's 13 Precincts are allowed
a man and a woman committee-person for each
1,000 voters in the Precinct.
Only residents in a given Precinct are allowed
to vote for the candidates in their Precinct. Voters
may not cross Precinct lines in their party
representative voting.
In Precinct Eight, L. C. Clark and Clarence
Monette are competing for the committeeman
position.
In Precinct Eight, Sally Jenkins and'Minnie J.
Likely are both seeking the one woman's place on
the County Committee from that Precinct.
In Precinct Eleven; a three-way race is on the
ballot for the male committee slot from that
Precinct. Dick Boyer, C. W. Brock and Leo
Kennedy are the three candidates from which the
voters from the Precinct will elect one
committeeman.


WANT TO SHARE
Our mutier, Myrtice
Jones. wrote this before she
died. We would like to share
it with our friends.
To my children:
Troy, James, Leroy, Bill
and Ruth. You all have
nothing to regret. You have
given your lives for me, and
your daddy. Ruth lived too
far away for. me to see her,
but she did what she could.
She has nothing to regret.
Remember that God loves
you everyone, and I loved
you all too. So don't worry, it
was time for me to go.

Port St. Joe's Sharks open-
ed up their baseball season
on Thursday of last week,
returning nine starters from
last year's squad.
The Sharks are fielding
five returning seniors this
year, as well as four other
starters from last year's
roster.
Seniors returning from last
season's team are Bo Burke
at catcher, Tony Beard, first
base and pitcher; Brad Bow-
en, right field; David Bear-
den, shortstop and pitcher
and Jeff Clayton, third base.
Bearden was the ace of the
mound last year with a seven
and two record.
Other returners include
Chris Butts at center field,
Kyle Pippin at'second base,
Jim Norton, left field and
Stacy Strickland, second
base and pitcher. Young
Strickland posted a 3-2 re-


cord on the mound last year
in his first year on the varsity
team.
The Sharks are starting out
like gang-busters this season,
winning their first two
games, one by a lop-sided
margin.
Last Thursday, in the
season opener, the Sharks
banged out 17 hits to trounce
Apalachicola, 20-1.
The Sharks had a big
16-run second inning, which
was ignited by Tony Beard's
bases-loaded triple. The
Sharks pounded out eight
hits in the big second.
Apalachicola's only run
was un-earned.
Chris Butts started on the
mound for the Sharks and
had a no-hitter going for
three innings. Butts struck
out seven batters and issued
one walk. Beard came on in
the fourth and struck out six
and allowed two walks for the
remaining two innings. The
game was called at the end of
the fifth inning because of the
10-run rule.
Beard had a single to go
with his triple and Jim
Norton went three for four at
the plate with three RBI's.
Mitch Burke had a perfect
day at the plate with two hits
for two appearances.

Williams Says Records Show Dam Harming Lakes


-From the Blountstown
"County Record"

On March 13th Gulf County
voters will join other Florida
citizens in casting ballots in
the Presidential Preference
Primary. Of greater import-
ance to Gulf County voters
will be a straw vote question
on their ballots concerning
the Dead Lakes Dam. The
question: Do You Favor
Removal of the Dead Lakes
Dam? Yes-or No.
A strong vote in favor of
removing the dam will not
result in the dam's immedi-
ate removal. However, pro-
ponents of removing the dam
feel they'll have something
the Governor and state agen-
cies can no longer ignore.
For over a year now, three

to 25 years. There's no way to
drain the lake. The dam only
prevents low water on the
lake. A drawdown structure
added at the west end of the
dam wasn't built low enough
to draw the lakes down. If the
dam had been built right,
where you could have actual-
ly gotten a draw-down, this
problem would have never
come up," Williams pointed
out.
Last year Williams, Dr.
Layne and DLB Secretary
Jerry Gates requested a
meeting with the Governor to
present information and a
petition signed by 2,000 Cal-
houn and Gulf County votes
in favor of removing the
dam. "The Governor refused
to meet with us, but wanted
us to meet with his right hand
man Dick Burroughs and two
other officials. Gates was
ready to show him the
petition. Burroughs said, "I
don't care anything about
seeing the petition". Gates
said, "I've got all this
material". Burroughs told
Gtes he didn't care anything
about that. What it amounted
to was, they spanked our
fannies and told us to go to
the house and behave our-
selves," Williams added.
There's only memories of
15 acre shellcracker beds on
Dead Lakes., Fish camps
have changed hands several
times. "Those opposed to
removing the dam say it
would dry up and only raise
mosquitos and become no-
thing but a cypress swamp,
now," Williams noted.
A Geological Survey for
1974-79 showed that the Lakes
. reached below 6 feet. for. 3
mdnths i n 1974;. "Harlaltd-
Pridgeon told .me himself'
there's hardly any change in
the lakes when the Apalachi-
cola is on 6 feet," Williams
added. :
"When I was a boy, there
was 10 or 12 fishcamps, with 2
at Scotts Ferry. Now there
are 4 or 5. It's got to the point
nobody fishes there," Willi-
ams pointed out.
"There's a lot of support
out of Bay County to keep the
dam. A group has brought a
one mile stretch of water-
front and want to sell it as


lower Chipola River to their
plant in St. Joe. "A few years
ago, the gates were opened,
and the river level dropped
some. The mill almost lost
their water supply. They
need a steady flow in the
Chipola River. If people in
Port St. Joe thought re-
moving the dam would effect
their industry or livelihood,
you wouldn't have any sup-
port to remove it," Williams
stated.
After an inactive period,
the Governor appointed new
members including Donnell
Whitfield and Clayton Shiver
in Calhoun County. At this
time the DLB decided to pull
the gates out and let the river
flow naturally. Pridgeon,
who had been appointed,
resigned the same day he
was appointed. A group of
Dead Lakes landowners sued
the DLB saying the DLB had
no authority to remove the
gates. A settlement was
reached with 3 gates being
placed back in and leaving
one out.
In March and April the
dam area will be lined should
to shoulder and boats will be
tied to every snag, fishermen
catching strings of bream
and shellcrackers trying, but
can't to get into the lake to
spawn., "I asked Mr. Linton
once why all those people
were catching so many fish
below the dam. He replied,
"Ya'll opened the gates and
let 'em all out of the lake."
You can't reason with these
people. They don't have

lakes. Park Trammell came
up with a 1831 survey in the
courthouse which read as
follows: Part of the township
' north and west of the lake as
surveyed in 1831 by B.
Clements variance 6 degrees
E the parts east of the lake
and N of the cut-off and S of
the Lake and SW of Chipola
River were surveyed in 1838.
"The lake had to be there for
them to do this survey,"
Williams added.
Williams used a U. S.
Department of Interior Geo-
logical Survey to stress how
the flow in the Apalachicola
River would regulate many
low or high water levels on
the Chipola. From 1958-79,
the flow of the Apalachicola
River at Chattahoochee was
15 per cent greater than from
1929 to 1957.
A fish and game study
reported sportsfish com-
posed 62 percent population
by weight in 1973, but decrea-
sed to 34 percent in 1978 on
the Dead Lakes. Major in-
creases were noted in the
study of non-sportsfish, pri-
marily gizzard shad and
spotted garr. "We believe
fish are coming out of the
Apalachicola River to spawn
in the Spring because the
water is too swift there. Now
they can't find suitable bed-
ding bottom in Dead Lakes
due to a heavy silt deposit
from not being able to draw
down the lake," Williams
stated.
Recently the Chipola River
Protective Group met with
supporters of removing the
Dead Lakes Dam. The group
decided they couldn't call
themselyenSthe CRPG unless'
they-helpedcprotect the entire

Growing


Tomatoes


The Most



Popular of



Home Crops


BY ROY LEE CARTER
County Extension Director
-If We had to guess, the one
vegetable that people. most
often include in their spring
gardens, it would have to be
4he tomato. Nothing quite
compares with the fresh
taste of sun-ripened toma-
toes. Judging by the popu-
larity of this vegetable, most
gardeners feel that raising,
this delicious crop is definite-
ly worth the effort. 7
To "raise any vegetable
successfully, you need to
begin with soil preparation,
io and tomatoes are no differ-
ent, Tomatoes need a slightly
acid soil with a pH between
six-point-zero and six-point
five. If the pH of your soil is
less than six-point-zero, it is
too acid and you should add
lime to correct the problem.
But, since some of our
Florida. soils are slightly.
alkaline, you really shouldn't
add lime unless a soil test
indicates the need. for. it.
About five pounds of, dolo-
mite per 100 sq. ft. of garden
is the average recommended
'rate. Be sure you work the
dolomite into the soil orie to
three' months before plant-
ing.
Another important part of
soil preparation is fertiliza-
tion, There are a couple of
schools of thought on'when to
add fertilizer. Some people
believe in adding fertilizer to
the soil before planting. If
you choose this method apply
2% lbs. of fertilizer for every
100 sq. ft. of garden.
Use an 8-88: with minor
elements. Do this a week.
..'before planting, and mix the
fertilizer thoroughly into the
:soil. Three weeks or so after
you plant the tomatoes, add.
another two lbs. of fertilizer
per 100 sq. ft. as a sidedres-
sing and water thoroughly4
In the other system,-fettt,-
zer isn't added until planting
time. Apply five lbs. of 8-8-8
per 100 sq. ft. Mix one-half
(Tz) into the entire bed, and
apply the other half in
furrows' three inches from
either side of the garden

iKK


CARTER
xows. Three weeks after
planting,; apply two-and-a-
half lbs. of fertilizer as a side
dressing. Make additional
side dressing of one lb. per
100 sq. ft. every two or three
weeks. With either method,
it's important to stagger the
applications of fertilizer,
adding a total of about 10 lbs.
per 100 sq. ft. during the
growing season.
Before planting, be sure all
frdst danger has passed.
Also, choose the healthiest
plants you can find and
handle them gently. 'It's best
to transplant on a cloudy day,'
in late afternoon or as soon as
possible after a rain.
It's a good idea to set your,
plants slightly' deeper than
they were growing at the
nursery. You might 'also
want to add a cutworm
control at the same'time. If
you wait even a day before
controllitig cutworms, you
may have to buy new plants.
If the tomato variety you're
growing requires: staking,
you can drive stakes into the
soil at the. time of planting.
Place the stakes three or four
inches from the plants As
they grow, simply tie them to
the stakes with strings.
STo help your plants off to a
good start. make up a starter
solution of one or two table-
W- t"le. o an all-purp-se
garden fertilizer dissolved in
a gallon of water. Pour about'
a pint of this liquid into the
planting hole as you set each
plant Protect the new plants
by shading them. for a, few
'days affer transplanting


Trees Have Defenders
This strip of palm trees lining road C-30 near Simmons
'Bayou, has become a matter for discussion, resolutions,
decisions, etc., during the past few weeks. The palms line
both sides of a straight stretch of the highway. Two men
were killed early this year when their small foreign car
crashed into one of the trees, spurring a movement to have
them cut down. This move spurred other action to
leave the trees standing. At present, the decision is to leave
them standing. The picture shows the tree which is nearest
the road bed of C-30, It is just a little over three feet from the
edge of the road. -Star photo
