Board Approves Request




Asks State Agencies to Remove Dam Immediately


Jim Bozeman asks the County Commission to call on
State agencies to go ahead with removal of the Dead Lakes
dam. -Star photo


The Gulf County Commission .is wasting no time in
trying to get the expressed wishes of the public carried out.
Tuesday night, they unanimously passed a resolution to be
sent to state and cabinet officials to immediately remove
the Dead Lakes Dam, in keeping with the expression by
voters in both Gulf and Calhoun counties in the March
13 Presidential Preference Primary election. On that ballot
a question asked whether or not Gulf and Calhoun county
, voters wanted the dam removed in a straw ballot question.
In Gulf County, voters approved removal of the dam by a
vote of 1,501 to 536, while Calhoun County votes expressed
the same sentiments by a six to one majority.
Jim Bozeman, former chairman of the Dead Lakes
Water Management Board, until he was removed by
Governor Bob Graham in January of 1983, presented the,
resolution to the Commission for adoption. "The people
have said they wanted it out and now I'm asking you to go
ahead and petition the Governor and state agencies to take
it out. '
Attorney William J. Rish quipped, "In other words,
instead of 'dam the torpedoes' it's to be 'torpedo the dam!'
It took only a few short minutes for the Board members,
present to act on the motion made by Commissioner Doug
Birmingham and seconded by Commissioner Jimmy
Gortman to ask the state to proceed with the process for
removing the dam.
Commissioner Billy Branch was not present at
Tuesday night's meeting, but the four Commissioners
present also agreed to the passing of the resolution.
In order that everyone in authority know about the local


request, copies of the resolution were sent to the Governor,
the Florida delegation in Washington, D. C., the
Department of Natural Resources, the Game and Fresh
Water Fish Commission, the Northwest Florida Water
Management District, Department of Environmental
Regulation, Chipola Basin Protective Group and all state
Senators and Representatives who serve the areas affected
by the Dead Lakes and its watershed.
The decision made by the voters through the straw
ballot was not binding on lawmakers, but the results were


considered as a mandate by the Commission who pointed
out this opinion to all who were sent copies of the resolution.
The final paragraph of the Resolution says: "Now,
therefore, it is resolved that the Board of County
Commissioners of Gulf County, Florida, implores the
Governor .of the State of Florida, the Honorable Bob
Graham, and all Legislators and commissioners, and
agencies involved or associated with the Dead Lakes to
adhere to the will of the people and remove the Dead Lakes
immediately."

Woman Injured When Car Skids


Cynthia Maddox of Port St. Joe,
received painful head and face
injuries when she lost control of her
car and it overturned on Highway. 98
Tuesday morning.
According to the Gulf County
Sheriff's office, Mrs. Maddox was


travelling west on Highway 98 about
8:30 a.m., when she attempted to
pass a tank truck in her compact
sedan. The driver of the truck says
that Mrs. Maddox' car skidded
sideways on the rain-slick pave-
ment and went out of control. The


car overturned and wound up on the
shoulder of the road at the intersec-
tion of Highway 98 and Butler Road.
Mrs. Maddox was taken to Gulf
Pines Hospital by the Port St. Joe
squad of the Volunteer Ambulance
service, where she was treated.



Rain, Lightning, Tornadoes Lash Area


Another "last gasp of
winter" storm struck Port
St. Joe and the Panhandle
Tuesday morning, bring-
ing 2.2 inches of rainfall to
the City, according to
Emily Simmons, who
keeps a daily account of
rainfall in the Port St. Joe
area.
A heavy rainstorm


struck the city at .about 2
in the morning and rained
in intermittent showers
until about 9:00 a.m., when
the rainfall slacked off to
showers and misting.
The rain didn't come
down steadily Tuesday
morning, but when it was
raining, it was flooding!
Accompanying the hea-


vy rainfall were severe
thunder and lightning,
which caused several light-
ning strikes in the area.
Here in Port St. Joe,
lightning hit the home of
Mr. and Mrs. Greg Turner
on St. Joseph Drive but did
only minor damage. The
bolts also struck a 150
horsepower electric motor


at the Wastewater Treat-
ment Plant, burning the
motor up.
Tornado watches were
posted for the entire Pan-
handle during the night
Monday and Tuesday
morning, but no incidents
of tornadoes touching
down were reported here
in Gulf County.

resolution presented by Bozeman as Chairman Everett


D. L. (Bobo) Owens ten-
dered his resignation as head
football coach and athletic
director of Wewahitchka
High School last week.
Owens told The Star he had
presented his resignation to
the Gulf County School
Board, effectively immed-
iately.
County Superintendent,
Walter Wilder said the resig-
nation had been accepted by
the Board with principal
Clayton Wooten and Owens to
work out the time as to when
the resignation would be-
come effective. "The Board
has accepted the resignation
effective with the new school


year which will begin in the
fall", Wilder said. He stated
he hoped Owens would finish
out the current school year
before formally relinquish-
ing his position.
Owens resigned a year ago,
giving health reasons as the
reason for his decision, but
after getting a good. report
from his doctor, resumed his
work as athletic director and
coach. "Not this time", Ow-
ens said. "This time, it's for
good".
Owens has been in charge
of the Wewahitchka athletic
program for about seven
years.

Supt. Happy Over Ruling


Superintendent of Schools, Walter
.i'.Wilder, expressed relief that the
Supreme Court of Florida struck the
Proposition I amendment from the
1984 ballot as it was written.
The high court of Florida, in a
unanimous decision, ordered the
amendment removed from the ballot
Tuesday, because, in, their opinion,
the amendment contained more than
one question., The Florida Constitution
requires that amendments to the
Constitution contain only one question-
when it is placed on the ballot.
Wilder told The Star, "I think
there are some things in the proposed


amendment which would require
some serious consideration, but in its
present status, it would be .devastat-
ing to Florida's education program."
Wilder said, "As the amendment
is presently written, I'm glad the
Supreme Court took the action they
did".
Passage of the amendment which
would put Proposition I into effect
would have had a devastating effect
on the Gulf County school system,
Superintendent Wilder said.
In terms of dollars and programs,
Wilder said, that at the present rate,
the move would have cost Gulf County


between 16.2 and 22.6 percent of its
current budget "In dAllars and cents,
it would cost us between $1.2'arid $1.4
million out of our $6 million budget",
the Superintendent said. To place a
perspective. on how much money
would be affected by the amendment,
Wilder said the estimated budget
reduction amount is enough to pay for
the entire operation of the Gulf County
district, with.the exception of salaries
and benefits for teachers and em-
ployees.
"There's no doubt about it; we.
would have had to cut drastically on

Nathan Peters, Jr.

In City Contest
Nathan Peters, Jr., became the first opposition in a City
election in nearly three years Monday of this week when he
paid his qualification fees to seek election for the City
Commission post currently held by Alton Fennell. Fennell
has indicated he will also run for re-election.
According to City Clerk, Alden Farris, the qualification
books will remain open until 20 days prior to the election.
There was some uncertainty about this date, since election
laws have been changed in the past year. Farris said a
telephone call to the Attorney General Tuesday, confirmed
the 20 day cut off time. A prospective candidate must be a
resident of the City, a registered voter, and pay a $35.00
qualification fee.
Fennell and Commissioner James B. Roberts are the
incumbents for the May 8 election. Both have indicated they
will seek re-election.

Port St. Joe Police receiv-
ed a teletype message Sun-
day from the San Francisco
Police Department, saying
Olive Gaston, also known as
Samuel Stallworth and R. P.
Martin, had left California
jurisdiction and was thought
to be in the area of his
mother's home here in Port
St. Joe.
Gaston was wanted in
SCalifornia for parole viola-
tion. He had been convicted
of child molestation and had
been released on parole.
Police officers Jim Savage
and Randy Atchison located
Gaston at 154 Avenue B and
made the arrest.
The fugitive is now in the
Gulf County jail.


Gulf County attorney Wil-
liam J. Rish' informed the
Commission Tuesday night
that bids would be received
and opened for the new
Beaches water system con-
struction on April 10, the next
regular meeting of the
Board.
Rish said financing has
been arranged with federal
grants and loans approved to
build the system and that
construction bids are to be
returned by the April 10 date.
According to the engineer's
estimates, work on construc-
tion of the system should get
underway by the latter part
of May.
Funds for the $1 million
system have been arranged
by the County Comrhission
who have arranged for a
government grant to finance


half the project cost and a
loan from Farmers' Home
Administration for the other
half. The system will utilize
treated water from the Port
St. Joe treatment plant,
rather than construct an-
other treatment plant in the
area and drill more supply
wells.
Highland View will also
receive a new water supply
source from the system. A
large supply main will be laid
from the Port St. Joe treat-
ment plant, all the way to the
Beaches to supply the water
source.
The system will provide
water for domestic consump-
tion as well as fire protection.
DRY TAPS
For the past two months,
the County has been taking
deposits from people in the


area who wish to hook up to
the system and currently are
making arrangements for
property owners to pay a
hook-up fee for property
which is now lying vacant.
Potential customers who
want a water tap run to their
property while the system is
under construction, but who
have no building on that
property can make arrange-
ments for the "dry tap".
Tuesday night, the Com-
mission agreed on a connec-
tion fee of $50.00 and a
deposit of $25.00 for a total of
$75.00. The taps will also be
billed $8.50 a month for a
period of four years to make
the bond payments on the
system.
If a customer hooks up at
some time in the future and


has not taken advantage of
the "dry tap" arrangement,
he will be billed $400 as a
hook-up fee, to pay his share
of the bond payments.
The system already has
over 350 customers signed up
to start using the water
system when it is completed.
WATER PROBLEMS
With the beaches water
system ready to get under-
way in western Gulf County,
the Conimission is continuing
to have small nagging prob-
lems with the privately own-
ed system in eastern Gulf
county.
Building inspector, De-
wayne Manuel advised the
Commission Tuesday that
some lines had been installed
without permits and in the
wrong place in the Peninsula
area recently. Manuel said at


least two lines had been
installed without permits and
another line had been install-
ed six feet from the road edge
rather than eight feet as
regulations require.
Mark Hannon, who is in
charge of the system said the
two incidents were caused by
misunderstandings. ."The
people doing the installation
thought I had permits when I
had only applied for per-
mits". Chairman Everett
Owens asked for Hannon's
cooperation in "tightening
up" the performance of
construction people in the
beaches area. "When we
come in with a piece of road
machinery we'll tear every-
thing up if is isn't in the right
place", Owens said.

the Commission:
-Agreed to move the road

property at Overstreet after
finding the existing road is

to the county by the late
Samuel A. Patrick, but had
been built, originally, in the
wrong location.

Editorials and Comments


THE STAR


THURSDAY, MAR. 29, 1984


Pleased with High



Court's Ruling


The Florida Supreme Court
ruled last Thursday on a matter
which not only could be, but is of
paramount importance to us here
in Gulf County; especially those of
us who live along the coast.
For nearly a decade, now, we
have had state and federal types
coming in, looking over the area,
drawing maps, doing survey work
and drawing conclusions from slide
rules and books rather than from
experience. These rules have effec-
tively put some of our property out
of the useful category and ruled
that the owners must, more or less,
let the land remain as it now sits.
The government people have,
for all practical purposes, placed a
:"Do not disturb" sign on a good
portion of land which is owned by
private individuals. That land is
:still taxed at the going rate, but the
owner has been forbidden to put to
use property he had shelled out his
money for.
Now the Supreme Court has
.ruled-just last Thursday-that
there must be. some repealing of
rules and relaxing of statutes
which would zone a person's
property to the point of being
useless. The ruling was aimed at an
aquatic preserve along Biscayne
,Bay, but there is property in Gulf
County which has some of the same
ultra restrictive rules and regula-
tions placed against it. We think it
o


is only the proper thing to do for
government to purchase land or
reimburse the land owner for his
loss when the state effectively
zones property to the point where it
is useless to the owner. Several
times in the past we have expres-
sed this belief, but now the
Supreme Court is also saying the
same thing. Maybe now, landown-
ers of such property can receive
some relief.
This hasn't been a selfish
position on our part; we don't own
any of the land which has had such
restrictions placed against it. We
have had the position only because
we think it fair.
We support the idea that we
must protect sensitive lands, but to
rule that a person cannot use his
property in any manner, no matter
what protection of the environment
the owner or user may be planning,
is kin to confiscation.
We don't profess to have the
answer to the problem, but if the
rules can be thought up which will
effectively put some lands off
limits simply because they have
sand dunes on them or they're close
to a body of marshlands, we're
certain a rule of zoning can be
produced which will protect both
the land and the owner's interest.
We're pleased that the Su-
preme Court thinks so, too.

S;pelltng Gains In


Popularity In Gulf Schools


The emphasis being placed on
'the ability to spell in our county
schools, in recent years, is a step in
the right direction for teaching our
children the basic rudiments of
education.
The introduction of the annual
spelling bee competition in recent
years and its increasing level of
competition, speaks as eloquently
as anything for the increased
emphasis on teaching Johnnie to
cope. with his future. In order to
spell, one has to understand how
words are built. He has to
understand how letters sound and
how to put them together for
particular sounds. The introduction
of the spelling bees have encourag-
ed more practical approaches to
the basic building blocks of an
education.
Spelling bees in Gulf County
are becoming more popular in our


county, and we salute that situa-
tion. Spelling properly and winning
' the annual spellingbee is-becoming
more of a status symbol among the
kids, which shows their interest in
achieving something worthwhile.
We have noticed, each year, it
takes words which are harder and
harder to spell to sit the competi-
tion down. Our students are doing
better and better in state competi-
tion. That's a good sign.
Attendance at one of the levels
of competition shows student inter-
est building to a fever pitch as the
competition gets down to the time
of decision as to who will win. One
would almost think .he was at a
football game when the champion-
ship of the school or county is
drawing down to the wire.
If anything evokes as much
interest as football in Gulf County,
it is definitely catching on.


ogging


It's not an unusual thing,
these days, to see a man or
woman plodding along, with
heart pounding and face
flushed, doing their best to"
prolong their date with the
undertaker. It doesn't matter
if the weather is good or bad,
either. A real, honest-to-
goodness "Jogger" will get
his or her distance (or time,
as they go by now) in
regardless of rain, sleet or
hurricane.
About ten years ago jog-
ging wasn't fashionable. I
can remember passing a
jogger early in the morning
and a companion saying,
"look at that fool! What's he
trying to prove?" I didn't say
anything because I knew
exactly what he was trying to
prove. I had been doing it all


my life.
My early jogging wasn't
exactly planned. A lot of my
running was getting back and
forth to school. Most of my
early running, however, was
chasing cows, horses and
hogs. I didn't exactly relish
the idea of running a cow
back and forth by the gate
she was, supposed to go
through, but I had to run her
until she went in. 'And
sometimes it took miles of
running.
Sometimes later, when I
was in junior high school, an
incident happened that made
a lasting impression on me.
It also impressed our p.e.
teacher who also happened to
be the football coach.
We had been playing bas-
ketball and it was-just about

Dakota. The dog took ill just
outside of Walnut Ridge,
Arkansas. I think it was gall

lost track of. where I was (I
can see you nodding yes to
that); back to the business at
hand I don't pretend to
know much about writing,
but I am trying, I've bent
over this old typewriter for
hours trying to hit upon an
idea for a story.
You ever notice that some
of these birds in this business
write when it seems they
don't have an idea either.
But I can sympathize with
them, small rooms in a run-
down motel on the outskirts
of town trying to cover a
story on "What makes Bill
run"; your chief, Perry
White, is screaming at you to
get the facts, or at least
some of the facts, or if all
else fails, write like you had
the facts; "Willie" Olson has
lost his camera so you've got
no pictures; then, just when
you're at your lowest, your
wife strolls by with p little
smile on her face, but steel in


her eyes, and says "You
mention my name or allude
to me in any way in that
newspaper again and I'll
cream your potatoes for
good". She ain't kidding,
either. Boy I tell you, this
newspaper business is tough.
So I feel it's only natural,
the American way if you
will, that now I've got a ques-
tion for the folks running this
tabloid, "Where's the
money?" "the bread", "the
payola". I don't think there's
anybody back there. I mean
do I look like Florence
Nightingale with a pen. Now
I see what you're thinking -
this guy is a joke he can't
write a lick and now he
wants to be paid for it. But
listen, we're not talking big
money here, just enough for
a little milk for the baby, say
$100,000 for each article.
That's just to start with of
course, in a couple of weeks
I'd want to renegotiate my
contract. You see I've been
reading the sports pages
recently and I've got the real
low-down on high finance.

NEPHEW, STAN, THE assistant
up at the. Twin City News, had a
birthday the other day and I almost
cried at his expression of grief at
having reached the ripe old age of 23.
Stan will never see 22 again. Ain't
that a shame? Can't you just see him
doddering around with his skateboard
sort of off balance at his advanced
age? I could hardly contain my grief
when I read of his pitiful plight at
being 23. But how do you express your
sympathies at a time like that? How
do you have-empathy for one in such a
condition?
It's indeed a pity that Stan will no
longer be an income tax exemption for
Poppa Will. Now, if anybody has a
right to receive sympathy, it's Poppa
Will for the income tax reason.
"OLD" 23-year-old Stan is now his
own income tax exemption.
Stan has grown a full-blown
,mustache, he drives his own car and
-Ihas even gotten to the age where he
keeps pet dogs.
I say, if he is old enough to grow a
mustache, drive his own car, keep a

being 23 puts me in. I'm his dad's

ONE OF THE reasons I can find
little sympathy for Stan's present
advanced years is that I had a
birthday myself last week. As a
matter of fact, my birthday fell on
Tuesday of last week, and I was a year


Stan!
If Stan has such palpatations
reaching age 23, we'll have to call out
the paramedics when he gets to the
age 40 plateau.
++ + ++
I REMEMBER THE day I hit 40.
It was a dreary day a day which
calls for staying inside by the fire,
with the windows and doors shut and


age on my birthdays from the 70
which has been allowed man, and
there's not all that many left. One
good thing about it, though, when I
quit having birthdays, I'll have every
day off. There'll be no coming to work,
no getting up in the morning; no
shaving; no having to become mobile
before the day is fully bright. There
are some good advantages to not


having birthdays.
THERE ARE ADVANTAGES to
having birthdays, too. I get my
handkerchief and shirt stocks re-
plenished. I get a couple of surprise
gifts I didn't really expect. There is
usually a card or two in the mail to
remember the momentous occasion.
Birthdays aren't all bad after 40,
but if you can still see at that
advanced age, you have to look pretty
close to see what the advantages are.
One's outlook on life has to be more
sunny than realistic.
If you can forget the twinge of that
arthritic pain; that quick gesture
before the bathroom mirror in the
morning, which passes for combing
what is left of your hair; if your own
teeth are reasonably sound, then
you're in pretty good shape, even if
you are over 40.
When you reach 50 ... well, that's
a whole other story entirely. Age 50
catches most busy men unaware. Age
50 creeps in like the bubonic plague
and is just about as welcome.


Age 50 was the age a friend told
me the other day made him feel like
he was 25 again. All I could think of
was that he had a miserable age 25, or
he was lying to me. I've been 50 once,
myself, and I suspect the friend was
lying. As a matter of fact, I'm not a
betting man, but that's one bet I would
break my anti-gambling resolve to
take.
I don't believe I could take
reaching age 50 again. Luckily, I'll
more than likely never have to, so I'm
safe there.
This year, my birthday fell on the
first day of Spring. Isn't that
something? Here is the beginning of a
new season of growth and develop-
ment and I have reached the age
where I think my film has been

There's only a hope that you haven't

There is one good thing about
having birthdays when you get 50 and

That didn't 'bother me
because I knew he was
wanting. James Dunlap to
win because James was his
favorite student. He was also
the fastest runner at our

the day the money was on.the
line!
The coach was right. I was
a cheater. I caught James
and tripped him just before:
we reached the big oak tree
that we were to run around at
the end of the baseball field.
Fortunately, I was much
bigger than James and, more
fortunate than that, the
coach liked a winner better
than he did his best student.

example, his guaranteed
salary for 5 years is
$4,625,000.00 and then his
deferred payments begin in
1990 and run through 2016. I
don't even know what a.
deferred payment is but.
old Goose's are going to total
around 5.33 million. You,say
I've got no experience in this
business so I don't "merit"
the money. How many
passes has Steve Young
thrown in professional foot-
ball he got $43 million to
sign,'and some of it is that
deferred payment stuff. And
I hear tell that Steve doesn't
even know which team sign-
ed him; they got so many
teams in so many different
leagues throwing the money
around that you just wait un-
til they get to that deferred
payment thing and then
reach for a pen.
-Quick now, Bob-Shirley, is
he a linebacker or a tight
end, a catcher or a power
forward. Is he left-handed or
right-handed? Heck, -with a.
name like Shirley he might
even be a girl You see, we
don't know much about him
because he only makes
$500,000.00 a year, and I
don't think any of it is defer-

red. (Bob pitches for George
Steinbrenner's New York
Yankees, ask him if he
don't.) And did you hear
about the guy in Detroit who
signed contracts with two
different teams in two dif-
ferent professional football
leagues. Say, now that's my
sentiments exactly, 'if they
offer, take it, if it's got defer-
red payments, sign it;
shucks, don't limit yourself
to one contract, try to get one
from everybody. And we've
had the gall to speak of other
nations as being uncivilized.
When I was about eight
years old, I got my first pay-
ing job picking up walnuts
in Mrs. Boaz's backyard. I
worked all day, I picked 'emr
all up, she gave me a dime.
She didn't tell me how to get
the stain off my hands but I
was satisfied, until now. I
should have signed a con-
tract with her for the first
two baskets of walnuts with
an option for a third. Of
course, our contract would
naturally have had a stain
clause in it and my agent
would have come in'for a
percentage. But where I
could have really got her
was on them deferred
payments. I don't think Mrs.
Boaz knows any more about
that than I do and I'd a hook-

The dramatic effect on the system

amounts to some $400,000 to $500,000 a

Even interest earned on deposited -

Any money earned as interest would
require a reduction elsewhere in tax

"The effect of the amendment
is on total income, Wilder said. He
said the amendment would have
definitely meant that all non-essential
programs would have to go. There
would be no music programs, no

Clerk Tells of An

Early Port St. Joe


City Clerk, Alden Farris,
synopsis of. what has gone on
before in'the life. of Port St.
Joe to the Kiwanis Club
Tuesday at their regular
meeting.
Farris said the City has
earned the reputation of
"coming back", in its 150
year history since the first
town was founded here on the
shores of St. Joseph Bay in
1838 and destroyed twice.
The latest rejuvenation
started in 1913. when the
charter for the present-day
city was granted to Port St.
Joe. Under its new name and
new start, C. F. Green was
the first paid employee. He

month off them walnuts I
picked up back in 1955.
Well, I've got to hang up
for nhow, my agent just came
by- (he's so slick he carries
two briefcases) and we are
goingin to see Perry White. I
also want to ask him if
there's not something we can
do about those walnuts...
Respectfully,
Kesley

came to fix my fence said it

was named Chief of Police at
a salary of. $50.00 a month.
His pay was later changed to
$1.00 per conviction of 'all
arrests he made. If the
person arrested was found
innocent in court, Green
didn't get his dollar.
The second paid employee
was City Clerk, S. C. Duggar,
who earned the princely sal-
ary of $12.50 a month for a
part time position.
Farris pointed out that
during the early days, the City
Commission had the problems
of hogs, dogs, sanitation and
keeping the City's police sober
as their main points of con-
cern.. Farris noted that today,
the Commission may not have
the problem of keeping the
police sober, but the remain-
ing problems are stillnvery
real in 1984.
The City started attempt-
ing to become an industrial
center in 1917, when they
passed a resolution and sent
it to Henry Ford, telling him
of the features for building a
shipyard here. At that time,
there was no electric power
supply in Port St. Joe, with
the exception of night trans-
mission .from the AN Rail-
road Company for lights.
The resolution told how
"simple" it would be to run a
power line from Columbus,
Georgia to furnish a power

at Port St. Joe High School", Wilder
said. "Air conditioning would be one
'of the first things to go, but we must
provide air handling at the high
school, or people can't stay in the
'building. It is constructed to be
dependent on the mechanical circula-
tion of air", he said.
Wilder pointed out that 80 percent
of the present school budget goes for
salaries and benefits. "Cutting out 20
percent of ouir income would mean a
severe revolution in the manner in
which educational 'facilities are pro-
vided for our children."

Evidently, Henry Ford did-

Gates Explains


Dam Situation


Jerry Gates, secretary-
treasurer of the Dead Lakes
Water Management Board,
spoke to the Rotary Club last
Thursday, telling the club the
history of the Dead Lakes
dam and why there is such a
controversy over its coritinu-
ed existence.
Gates explained that the
dam was started in 1956,
when the Jim Woodruff Dam
at Chattahoochee was first
closed to fill the Lake Semi-
nole Reservior. "Closing the
dam virtually dried up the
Dead Lakes and the lower
Chipola River.because they
depend on the natural dam of
the Apalachicola River to
both supply water to this
water shed area and to buffer
the flow of water out of the
Chipola watershed, including
Dead Lakes" Gates said.
This caused people who
lived on the Dead Lakes to
become concerned over the
future of the lakes and
started the movement in
earnest to secure a dam for
the south end of the lakes.
"Eight months after the
dam was put in, the water
level was higher below the
dam than it was above it".
Gates remarked.
Gates described the Dead
Lakes. structure as "not
really a dam, it's just a
spillway".
Gates said that at the time,
building the dam was thought
to be a good idea. "Nobody
knew it would cause such
problems as it has".
The culprit, according to
the speaker, is a build-up of
sediment, fertilizer, pesti-
cides, etc., which have been
deposited in the lake over a
period of years "for 15 miles
back up the Chipola River",


Gates said.
Another bad effect of the
Dead Lakes dam, according
, to Gates, has been the
reduction of the speed of
current flow. The speaker
said the former rate of flow
served to keep the Lakes
flushed put and prevented
any sediment and chemical
build-up.
Gates described the Lakes
as "important to the entire
area". He said the watershed
area which fed the Lakes and
the Chipola River had all
been affected by the dam.
Gates said the entire area
south of Chattahoochee,
where the Apalachicola Ri-
ver is formed, is dependent
on the whole.
The speaker said there
have already been several
surveys of the Lakes and
their problems. He said the
studies were performed by
the Fish and Game Commis-
sion at the request of the
former Dead Lakes Board.
"The studies show that the
most feasible and cheapest
way to correct all the wrongs
that have been done to the
lakes is to remove the dam".

Phil A. Dunaway, Jr., son of
Phil and Shirley Dunaway of

WHAT IS A HERNIA?

When an organ protrudes through an opening in the
surrounding walls it is called a hernia. Most hernias
are in the abdominal, groin area. This hernia
| weakness can be there at birth but it may be much
later in life that it is discovered.
At one time having a hernia repaired surgically was
a long drawn out process. Often the patient was out of
commission for many, many weeks. Some preferred to
wear a confining belt rather than have the operation.
But today recovery, is much more rapid and it is more
advisable and common to have it taken care of. If you
suspect a hernia, see your physician.

Friday and took advantage of
a lapse in the Shark defense
to dump the home team, 11-6.

errors while the Demons had
only one error charged to
them.
It was the third and fourth
innings which proved to be
the Sharks' Waterloo. In the
third inning, the Sharks had
three costly errors which
resulted in five Demon runs.
In the fourth inning, the
Sharks made two errors
which allowed Florida High
to score four runs.

game, the Sharks played
Shark-style baseball and out-

Florida High batters for an
inning. Mitch Burke pitched
the final two innings of the

ited the Demons with hitting
the ball well. "We helped that
hitting ability with mental
errors which cost us the ball
game", he said.
Chris Butts had the most
hits for the Sharks, collecting
three singles in four trips to
the plate. Mitch Burke had
the longest hit, smacking a

How Soil ph Affects Growth of Your Plants


BY ROY LEE CARTER
County Extension Director
Suppose you have a healthy
plant, you set it in what
seems to be a good soil, you
water and fertilize it ade-
quately, it appears to be
getting plenty of sunshine
and still, the plant does
poorly. What's the matter?
The problem could very
likely be improper pH. pH is
a scientific scale for measur-.
ing different levels of acidity.

the generator during an
emergency. Comm. Branch
stated Civil Defense Director
Lamar had apparently not
,been informed of this action
since he told the radio station
manager, Norman McChris-
tian, to pick the generator up
from the Mosquito Control
Department and Acting Mos-
quito Control Director
Graves did not release the
generator to the radio station
at Comm. Branch's instruc-
tion. After discussion, the
Board agreed to write WIDE
AM- WGCV FM radio station
manager McChristian and
Civil Defense Director La-
mar informing of the Board's
previous action concerning
this matter.
Comm. Branch moved the
Board advertise to receive
bids to purchase a two-ton
flatbed truck for the Road
Department. Comm. Gort-
man discussed getting state
motor pool prices instead of
receiving bids. After discus-
sion, the Attorney advised
that.unless the Board wants
to change its policy, the
present policy is to advertise
to receive bids and not take
state motor pool prices. After
further discussion, the mo-
tion passed with the following
vote: Comm. Owens,
Branch, and Money voted
yes. Comm. Gortman and
Birmingham voted no. Chair-
man Money returned the
Chair to Comm. Owens.
Comm. Money discussed
old vehicles being left on
public right-of-ways. The
Sheriff reported his depart-
ment could post signs on
these vehicles to have the
owners remove the vehicles
and if they didn't the Heriff's
Department will remove the
vehicles from the right-of-
way.
aComm u:Morey reported he
had received requests for Sve
Our Children igns to be
placed at the entrance of the
county. The Board discussed
insurance agencies, etc.,
placing these signs.
Comm. Gortman reported
several people had requested
all county offices within the
county be put on a county-
wide telephone system with a
telephone number that is not
long distance to anyone cal-
ling within the county.
Comm. Gortman then moved
the Board request Attorney
Rish to negotiate for a
county-wide 'telephone sys-
tem for all county offices
with St. Joseph Telephone &
Telegraph Company. Comm.
Birmingham seconded the
motion and it passed unani-
mously.
The Board discussed the
progress on the Beaches
Water System Project (num-
ber of deposits, rates, FHA
approval).
Gulf County Parks Plan-
ning Committee Chairman
Wayne Childers reported to
the Board on the following
items:
Mr. Childers applied to the
Bureau of Land Management
for the Beacon Hill Property
Site; Comm. Money and Mr.
Childers talked with U. S.
Senator Paula Hawkins re-
questing the two lighthouse
keeper's quarters, now lo-
cated on'Cape San Blas, be
moved to the Courthouse
Historical District and she
agreed to help; Lieutenant
Governor Mixon is in support
of moving Florida's First
Constitution from Fernan-
dina Beach back to Port St.
Joe, Florida. Some people
have been asking about a .
beach clean-up project which
the Gulf County Park Com-
mittee will meet to discuss.
Gulf County Planning Com-
mission Member Childers
reported he had received a
letter from the Bureau of
Land Management stating
since Gulf County's Compre-
hensive Plan was adopted on
May 11, 1981, the updated
plan should be complete and
evaluated by May 11, 1986.
There being no further
business, the meeting did
then adjourn.


CARTER
Many factors account for
healthy plant growth, and
one of the most important is
the pH, or acid level, of the
soil. The soil pH has a lot to
do with a plant's ability to
utilize nutrient affect on
plant growth. My informa-
tion for this article was
provided by Extension Urban
Horticulture Specialist, Dr.
Robert Black of the Univer-
sity of Florida's Institute of
Food and Agricultural Scien-
ces.
The numerical pH scale,
used to express acid levels,
goes from zero-point-zero
(0.0), to the fourteen-point-
zero (14.0), with the lower
numbers describing greater
acidity. The midpoint of the
scale, or a pH of seven-point-
zero (7.0) is the value for
pure water, which is neutral,
since it is neither acid nor
alkaline.
pH is a chemical short-
hand, describing the concen-
tration of hydrogen in the
soil. Hydrogen is the element
which determines the level of
acidity. Each whole number
drop on the pH scale indi-
cates 10 times more acidity.
For example, a soil with a pH
of five-point-zero (5.0) indi-
cates alkaline, or sweet soils,
and the higher the number,
the more alkaline the soil.
Two good examples of acid
and alkaline liquids are
orange juice and sea water.
Orange juice ,is very acid,
having a pH of three-point-
seven (3.7), while sea water
is slightly alkaline, with a pH
of seven-point-nine.

properties which directly af-
fect growth. Soil pH affects
leaching and levels of soil
bacteria, as well as the
availability of nutrients and
toxic elements.
Most plants have a range of
tolerance to the pH level of
the soil. But, plant nutrients
are most available in the pH
range of five-point-five to
six-point-five. Most popular
Florida landscape ornamen-
tals grow well in soils rang-
ing from neutral to slightly
acid. However, certain
plants need either acid or
alkaline soils having pH
values out of this usual
"best" range. For example,'
to grow best Azaleas, Bou-
ganvilleas, Crotons, Dog-
woods, Gardenias, Hibiscus,
Hollies, and Magnolias, need
very acid soils, soils having a
pH below five-point-five. In
areas where soils are alka-


C


line, these plants grow poor-
ly, and many have yellow
leaves. Unfortunately, alka-
line soil is quite common
around Florida homes. As I
said, some plants do quite
well in alkaline soils, includ-
ing palms, yuccas, and olean-
ders.
About the only way you'll
ever know whether your soil
is within the range that
allows for the best growth of
the plants in your landscape
or garden is to have a soil
test run to determine the
exact pH level. If the pH is
not at the optimum level, it
can be raised or lowered by
using certain chemicals
which are available to all
homeowners.
I must emphasize that pH
is by no means an indication
of soil fertility. It simply
measures the acid or alkaline
condition of your soil.
