As Heavy Rains


Pelt Area Tuesday


Heavy rains fell, for the
entire day Tuesday, in the
Port St. Joe and Gulf County
area, but didn't cause the
problems with rising water
which afflicted other neigh-
boring counties through
Tuesday and into the night.
Here in Port St. Joe,
rainfall measured only two
inches according to our
usually reliable source of
such information. As much
as nine inches fell in neigh-
boring counties causing
flooding of residential
areas, roads and streets.
Many people were forced to
leave their homes.
According to the Gulf
County Sheriff's office,
there were no damages
from the heavy rains.
Last week, on Wednes-
day, heavy winds hit the


county, causing loose ob-
jects to be blown about and
tree limbs and pine cones to
litter yards.
In the Highland View
area, the water of St. Joe
Bay were breaking in waves
which were sending spray
across Highway 98 and at
the Beaches, sand was
drifting in spots across the
highway from the high
winds.
The situation never did
get serious enough to cause
any real, damage.
Here in Gulf County and
the Panhandle, the month of
March came in and went out
like a lion. April showers
started in earnest on the
third day of the month, only
to be followed by bright
sunshine on Wednesday.


Postmaster Sapp

Moved to Maitland


Postmaster Tom Sapp will
be leaving Port St. Joe after
nearly two and a half years
as head of the local post
office.
Sapp has been transferred
by the Post Office Depart-
ment to Maitland, where he
will assume the duties of
postmaster of the office
there.
Sapp came to Port St. Joe
in October, 1981 from'Ocala.


Acting on a warning by
City Commissioner James B.
Roberts that the floor of the
scout hut on Tenth Street is
in danger of falling in with
someone, the City Commis-
sion agreed to take steps
toward getting a new build-
ing built for the Scouts.
The City will not take the
full load of providing a new
building, but the Commission
will spur civic activities and
plans to get the job done.
Building of a new scout hut
has been a need and a
"talking stage" plan. for
nearly four years now, but
the old structure continues to
stand, however unsteadily.
Roberts said he had some-
one who was' willing to draw
up plans for the building, but
the type building would have
to be settled before planning
can begin.
E. F. Gunn advised the'


Commission that Artimas
Engineering of Tallahassee
would be in Port St. Joe in a
few days to do some work for
the Wastewater. plant ,and
they would be qualified to
evaluate the soil conditions
at the present scout hut site.
Mayor Pate and Roberts
both said they knew of people
who were willing to put
private money into such a
local project and advised the
Commission to sort of act as
a liaison between those who
would furnish financing and
those who would do the work
and get the project rolling.

In June of 1983, he was
temporarily assigned to Mil-
ton when that office moved
into a new building. He
served there until January of
this year when he returned to
Port St. Joe.
"I knew in January I was
being considered for the
Maitland position but felt it
had been filled by this time.
"Now, I have been notified
I must leave here for Mait-

Stevens Joins Staff

of Florida National


Charles J. Stevens joined

at the bank.
A native of Port St. Joe,
Stevens served as manager
of Citizens Federal Savings
and Loan Association for 24
years. HIe resigned the posi-
tion a few months ago, when
Citizens Federal shifted to a
computer operation. Prior to
his period of service with the


savings firm, Stevens was
employed by the Florida
Bank for a period of 12 years.
Stevens went into the bank's
employ immediately after
coming out of the Army after
World War II.
Stevens lives with his wife,
Peggy, at 1312 Woodward
Avenue. They have one son,
Jay, who resides in Gaines-
ville.
Stevens has already as-
sumed his new duties at the
bank.


expires in 1986. Cox said the
firm was presently offering
better interest incentives to
sign franchises than the
City is presently receiving.
Tuesday night, Cox asked
if the question couldn't be
placed on the May 8 ballot for
local voters to decide on the
franchise renewal.
Attorney William J. Rish
advised the Commission that
it would be practically im-
possible to meet the legal
time demands of placing a
new ordinance on the May
ballot. "If the ordinance was
ready for presentation to-
night, you might make it, but
we don't even have a rough
draft of an ordinance prepar-
ed," he said. Rish advised
waiting, until the November
general election and then
attach the franchise question
as a local issue if the
Commission wanted to.
The present franchise with
Florida Power is paying the
City four percent. A new
franchise could get the City
up to six per cent plus other
benefits which could be nego-
tiated.

PC Firm

Gets Gulf

Road Job
A Panama City firm has
been announced as the ap-
parent low bidder on a Gulf
County road project, accord-
ing to the Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation.
* Florida Asphalt and
Paving of Panama City was
announced this week as the
apparent low bidder with a
bid of $749,326 to Wviden and
resurface State Road 22 in
northwest Gulf County from
the Bay County line to the
Wetappo Creek Bridge west
of Wewahitchka, according
to David Fierro of the FDOT.
The 5.3 mile project calls
for the widening and resur-
facing of the state road and
modifications to the road's
drainage system.
j The existing 20 foot wide
roadway will be widened two
feet on each side, eight foot
grass shoulders will be con-
structed and the existing pipe
cross drains will be extend-
ed, according to Fierro.
"The extension of the cross
drains will provide for a
safer recovery area between
the edge of the pavement and
the culverts," he said.
The contractor is expected
to begin construction in three
to five months and will have
150 calendar days to com-
plete the project, according
to FDOT officials.


warned the City that it had
violated its temporary op-
erating permit limits in
January and February of this,
year and had failed to report
the temperature of City of
Port St. Joe effluent during
this time.
The letter stated that con-


tinued non-compliance would
make the City liable for
"appropriate enforcement
action".
The violations-in BOD
and suspended solids limits-
were caused primarily by
dredging and construction
work at the plant. The DER


has said previously it would
allow the exceptions to limits
while the construction con-

The failure to report tem-

In announcing Debbie Baxley's elec-
tion as Gulf County Teacher of the Year,
Superintendent B. Walter Wilder says,
"The teacher of the year program is
designed to honor a teacher who is

M.B. Tank Out of Service


The Town of Mexico
Beach Water Department
will be renovating the ele-
vated water tower during
the period April 3 through
April 21, according to infor-
mation released this week
by Steven A. Rudloff, Town
Administrator.
During this period the
water system will be work-
ing directly off its pumps


and customers may ex-
perience varying water
pressure with a slight possi-
bility of intermittent out-
ages.
As a safety measure Town
officials recommend cus-
tomers store five to 10
gallons of water in contain-
ers for emergency use in
case problems are encoun-


tered.
During this period, the
water maintenance office
will be manned 24 hours a
day to monitor the system.
Rudloff said Town person-
nel will do everything they
can to make the system
function as usual during this
period of having the elevat-

Clerk Balks at Making Appraiser's Payment


Says Proper Procedure Not Followed In Making Request Would Disrupt Office Routine


JERRY GATES


The running feud between Clerk of the
Court Jerry Gates and Property Appraiser
Joyce Suber experienced yet another
skirmish this week,' when Gates refused to
pay a quarterly draw of funds to the office
because, as Gates explained it, Mrs. Suber
didn't make her application for the funds in
time to get them on the first day of the
quarter.
The problem came to light Tuesday in a
special called meeting of the County
Commission in which Mrs. Suber sought the
approval of the Commission to force Gates
to make the payment to her office.
At stake for Mrs. Suber is some $25,000
to pay wages and expenses of running her
office for the next three months. Gates
contends that what is at stake for the county
is whether or not Suber's office follows
established procedure or whether the county
must cash in short term CD's to get the
money to pay Suber. Gates says to do so
would forfeit interest anticipated from the
funds which are deposited in the interest
bearing notes monthly. In a letter to the
Commission, Gates pointed out cashing the


certificates 'to pay Mrs. Suber's request
immediately, would cost the County $728.30
in interest.
Suber told Board members, Everette
Owens, Billy Branch, Eldridge Money and
Doug Birmingham' Tuesday she turned in
her quarterly request, as she is required
to do by state law, on March 15 for
consideration at the March 27 meeting.'
Gates said, in his letter, that it has been
a standing procedure with the Commission
that expenditures be turned in by the first
day meeting of each month for approval and
payment. After this date, according to
Gates' letter, funds remaining in the bank
are invested for the remainder of the month
to earn interest and cannot be used without
cashing in the certificates.
Mrs. Suber countered Tuesday that Tax
Collector Eda Ruth Taylor had deposited
$35,000 on Monday of this week, "So the
money was there". No information was
available at press time as to whether or not
the Monday deposit was already encumber-
ed or not.
Both Mrs. Suber and Elections Supervi-


sor, Cora Sue Robinson, were late in filing
their money requests for the quarter and
were not included in the first of the month
check writing activities Mrs Robinson was
present..however, at the March 27 meeting
and asKeu tile .uliinlssion to approve her
payment.
Gates' letter to the Commission said this
was the first time Mrs. Robinson had been
late with her requpot and the second time
Mrs. Suber had been late.
In the Iellel, wmnci >I*B presented to the
Board by Deputy Clerk, Maurell Cumbie,
Gates said, "I refuse to endorse the check,
cancel a certificate of deposit, and forfeit
$728.30 in interest because one elected
official has political influence with the
Board of County Commissiorn and can order
the Clerk to make payments to her
whenever she desires, regardless of cost to
the taxpayers."

cannot continually cater to persons who
refuse to accept the fact that we are running
a business here, dealing in hundreds of
thousands of dollars, trusted to us by the


taxpayers who do not expect us to either
waste the money or allow it to sit idly in the
bank accounts while we make exceptions to
individuals who have political power with
the Board of County Commission and use
this power to thwart the efficiency of the
Clerk's office and the management of the
county's funds."
Mrs. Suber said she filled out her forms,
as required by law and had them in by
March 15 for payment on April 1, the first
day she could legally receive the money.
Mrs. Suber said she knew of no law which
required the request to be in before the first.
meeting of the month.
Gates says his office has a procedure of
operation (including check writing) well
known to all Courthouse officers. "We don't
just write checks", he said. "Checks and
accounts are monitored by computer
equipment which must be programmed for
the work of writing checks or any other task.
He claimed writing a check, except at check
writing time, incurs an undue hardship on
his people and disrupts normal office

Logic Could Be A



Hindrance to Bill


available for the drama club, FHA,
math and science club, school
newspaper production, student
council, language, chess clubs, etc.
But if a group of students wish to
hold a voluntary prayer meeting on
school premises, the request is
, declared "improper".
We all agree that public
schools have no business in reli-
gion. But to discourage rather than
allow students to freely engage in
such activities is akin to squelching
basic rights.
Senator Jeremiah Denton of
Alabama has come up with a
sensible approach to the solution of
the insoluable problem. How can
you allow students to pray and
worship in school without breaking
the law? Senator Denton is prepar-
ing a bill which requires that every
school which receives federal aid
must give religious groups equal
access to extracurricular oppor-
tunities. If facilities which have
been paid for with tax dollars, are
available for students to build
boats, repair cars, make bird
houses, or follow any number of
activities, they should also be
available for a student to exercise
free assembly for the purpose of
having prayer, if they want to.
The only thing which we can
see which may hinder Senator
Denton's bill, is the clear logic of it.


Last week the 'Senate voted
down a proposed constitutional
amendment which would have
allowed prayer to be said in public
schools. Maybe the proposed
amendment was written to satisfy
emotions more than the law, but it
failed to pass the Senate and so the
matter has been silenced for the
remainder of this year.
It is still permissable to cuss in
school, but don't get caught pray-
ing.
If you cuss in school, armies of
defenders will rise up to support
your "freedom of speech". If you
pray, you are in danger of being
convicted of breaking a federal
law.
Happily, this situation doesn't
exist in Gulf County schools. All our
students and teachers may be sent
to jail by Federal Marshalls, but
they still pray in the school, if they
want to, in Gulf County.
James Kilpatrick wrote a
column last week on this subject
which everyone-including Con-
gress and the Supreme Court-
-should read.
Kilpatrick pointed that there
were school districts in our land
which would forbid students from
using school facilities and equip-
ment to have voluntary prayer
meetings and devotionals, even
though the school premises were

Proposition 1 Was Bad News


SHAD


I Don't Even Remember


If we had any misgivings about
our personal opposition to Proposi-
tion 1, that position was only
reinforced this past week when the
Panama City News-Herald came
out with such position of outrage
because the Supreme Court ruled
the matter was not constitutionally
drawn. They made the decision
unanimously, leaving little doubt
the matter was not only dangerous
to the general public, it was also
against the basic tenant of law in
Florida.
Still, the News-Herald was
appalled at the fact the Supreme
Court had tossed the proposition off
the ballot.
This was a peculiar position for
a newspaper which espouses to be
so pro law and order.
We can picture the News-Her-
ald supporting the amendment
because of their viewpoint on
handling tax money. They would'
have everyone pay for what they
use in the nature of public facilities
and services, or do without them if


they can't pay.
With such an attutitude, we
would be doing without a lot of
things. We could hardly pay for the
.-paved streetin front of our place of
business or r uriomie. en though
we have paid substantial school
taxes over the years, we feel the
education our gaggle of children.
received cost more than we have
paid in to the educational coffers by
way of taxes. These are only two of
numerous examples of where all of
us get more than we pay in certain
areas.
It's odd that' the first ones to
object to the actions of the Supreme
Court are the ones who shout the
loudest when they want to invoke
that old cliche, "It's the law!"
We think that until the News-
Herald and others queue up in line
to sign up to pay for public services
they are now receiving free or at
small cost, they have no right to
thump their tub over a legitimate
tax levy just because they don't
happen to like paying it.

Little Girls


This article is dedicated to
every father of each little girl
that was ever born. It is
dedicated to each father or
husband or single man that,
some day, hopes to become
the father of a little girl. May
each of you love and cherish
your daughter as I do mine.
I
A few nights ago I was
reading a book about a man
who raped and killed young
women. His name is Ted
Bundy and you have probab-
ly heard or read about some
of the terrible things he did.
The author interviewed Ted
Bundy at length and it was
his conclusion that Bundy
had no remorse at all about
the dastardly deeds he had
committed. It was estimated


that he raped and killed more
than twenty-five young
women.
It was much more than
murder, however. He had, in
the process, violated every
conceivable law of God and
man that ever existed.
It was a horrible book!
I recall a song that was
released some years ago. It
was about a little girl that
fell into a well. Her name was
Cathy, as I recall, and many
people worked for several
days trying, in vain, to free
her from her deadly prison.
The event and the song drew
national attention. The first
few lines went like this: "On
April the eighth, the year
forty-nine, death claimed a


slicker than he looks. I go, in
to see. him. to get. ny .fair
share of the profits around
here and if you remember, I
even take my agent so we

little girl so pure and so kind.
Cathy, they called her, met
her doom that day. I know it
was God that called her
away."
The song went on to tell
about the fruitless attempts
that were made to rescue
little Cathy. The end of the
song told of the horrible
anguish that her mother and
father felt as they stood
helplessly by and heard the
tragic news. Their little

send us on a trip to cover a
story. Come to think of it he
did say that he actually had
paid a guy in cash back in '81
but he couldn't remember
what this fella had done.
Well sir, he gets to telling
me about my first "assign-
ment" to the dark continent,
Africa; hey this is O.K.,
Morocco, Timbuktu, Nai-
robi, the Congo River, I
might even see Tarzan...
Now I can't drive worth a
hoot, and I hate to travel but
a chance to see some new
sights, broaden your hori-
zons, become more cosmo-
politan, I had to go for this. I
left the boss's office feeling
like I'd gotten more than I
bargained for and began
mentally to prepare for my
first "assignment". My
agent wasn't too happy as
it's difficult to take a percen-
tage of a trip.
Well the morning we're to
shove off, I eagerly bound
down to where I'm to meet
the bus and boy, howdy, you


can see this coming can't
you; it's an old bus loaded
with young people the boss
had signed me up to
chaperone a bunch of
young'uns going on a trip to
Busch Gardens. Guess who
got to drive?
We're 10 miles out of town
heading south when all this
begins to sink in, and I can
still hear the boss's last
words ringing in my ears,
"Of course you'll have to use
some of your own money for
meals, gas, hotel rooms, and
other incidentals". And then
I heard the noise. Someone
had brought one of those
music boxes along, you know
the kind with only one vol-
ume button and that's extra
loud; and have you ever
noticed those things won't
play country music. Now
this box must have been
special cause it only played
one song, and I know you've
all heard it, it's the one
where the woman starts a

You Can Never Tell A Person


's Talent (or Lack of) by Looking at Him


THERE'S NO ACCOUNTING for
the talents some people have. It's-
getting harder and harder these days
* to look at a person and determine that
he can do that or he can do this. I even
read the other day where one of those
high-priced baseball players Kesley
Colbert talks about didn't even look
like a baseball player.
I don't suppose he really minded
whether he looked like a baseball
player or not, so long as they handed
him the long green in sufficient
quantities.
He'll probably even be agreeable
to looking like a bridge player, if
they'll pay him like a top of the line
baseball player. I would.

LAST THURSDAY the Rotary
Club, of which I am a member, had a
hamburger cook out and pool and dart
tournament at Dave May's house. We
didn't just barge in on Dave. He
invited us. In a weak moment and
'without counsel from Betty, Dave just
up and invited the club to his house for
these activities.
Last Thursday, we all showed up


at about 7:00 and stayed until 9:30
getting those tournaments played
off and hamburgers grilled and eaten.
What made me think of the fact
that you can't look at a person and


define his talents, wa, the outcome of
the pool tournament. The winners
were unlikely looking pool champions.
They hardly ever play, but they took
the championship with some pretty
good shots.
Those of us who are shaped like
Minnesota "Fats" and Willie Mos-
conis, weren't even in the finals.
FOR INSTANCE, I was paired


with Charlie Stevens on a team.
Neither Charlie nor I had ever
played a game of pool before in our
lives. I have never held a pool cue in
my hands or stroked it at a ball, so far


as I remember. Everytime it came
time to go play pool, I always wound
up trying to get caught up on my
fishing, rather than tending to the
weightier matters of playing pool.
But, we all played pool Thursday
night.
Charlie and I won. Even though it
was the first time we had ever played,
we took one of the championships at
the Rotary tournament last Thursday


night. We took undisputed possession
of last place. There was nobody better
at being last than we were.
In the first game, I think we lost
because "Gulf County Slim", Leon


Pollock, kept changing the rules on us
as we played. I am not a seasoned pool
player, but it doesn't make sense that
one should make up rules as the game
progresses.
We even lost the first game in the
first round of the loser's bracket. Like
I said, we had undisputed possession
of last place.
+WINNERS OF OUR pool play-off++++
WINNERS OF OUR pool play-off


was the team of John Miller and
Roger Soricelli. They took first place
honors from Dr. Jorge (that's Cuban
for 'George') San Pedro and Frank
Pate in a hard-fought contest.
Henry Cassini kept praising the
prowess of Sicilians for playing pool
with the success Roger was having,
but the best Henry could do was to let
Bill Crawford sink seven balls in a row
to win the loser's bracket for them. Of
course, Henry talked a good game and
urged Bill on to greater accomplish-
ments. Bill was so elated at putting a
ball in a hole, after his experiences
playing golf, he just couldn't quit
putting the pool balls in the pocket.

DR. JORGE (Cuban for 'George')
San Pedro surprised everyone by
sitting down at the piano and giving
his own renditions of old favorites
like, "Basin Street Blues", "Begin the
Beguine", "Stardust", etc.
Jorge (Cuban for 'George'), did
all right until someone lit a candle in a
holder and placed it on the edge of the
piano like Liberace's candelabra.
Then someone found the sheet


music hidden in the piano bench and
dug it out. That really fouled up the
works. Jorge was going great guns at
the keyboard until someone messed
him up with music.
DAVE HAD SENT his wife, Betty,
off with $2.00 and told her to take the
evening out and enjoy dinner in some
swanky restaurant as far as the
money would go.
About the time the pool tourna-
ment was winding up and about the
time Dr. Jorge (Cuban for 'George')
ran out of his repertoire, Betty came
home.
At first she didn't say much.
Someone had squirted mustard on her
kitchen floor. Somebody else had used
her Sunday silver to spread catsup.
Someone had missed the dartboard
and the backboard and put a dart in
her finished wall, but before she
noticed the wax from Dr. Jorge's
candle had melted down into the
keyboard of the piano, I decided
Frenchie wanted me at home about
that time and I slipped out the side
door.

in the studio is trying to shut
her .up so they grab her by
the throat and start squeez-

choked the only sound she
can make is sort of a high
pitched squeal. Now the boys
in the band are very profes-
sional and they realize how
bad this lady is a sounding,
so they try to drown out this
awful squealing by playing
louder, and louder, and
louder...then they put this
record out and it becomes a
best seller. You figure it out.

Mrs. Suber said her office needed the
quarterly payment to pay the bills of her
office. "Nearly two weeks notice should be
long enough", she said.
Gates has said he will pay the quarterly
on April 10, the normal check writing day,
and not before. His letter said, "I have twice
made exceptions for Mrs. Williams (Suber)
because the Board of Commission instruc-
ted me to do so in order to keep her happy. I

Gates states there has been no other
elected official other than Mrs. Suber, turn
in a late pay request, with the exception of
- the April, 1984 request of Mrs. Robinson.
Mrs. Suber told the Commission Tues-
day she needed the money immediately. The
Board agreed to pay the quarterly draw
"today", but Gates wasn't present to write
the check and Deputy Clerk Cumbie said she
wasn't empowered to write it. Gates says he
will wait until Tuesday of next week-nor-
mal check writing day-to settle the matter.


unusual thing I saw was how
much food the guy next to
me ate for lunch. Now, I had
lunch in this German rest-
aurant (don't even ask what
a German eating place is do-
ing in the middle of darkest
Africa) that served it up
cafeteria style. The prices
were not marked and I've
told myself never buy it if
they're afraid to show you
the price before you get it.
Well I got it I had a small
sandwich and a little sauer-
kraut for $9.43. The guy next
to me must have paid $116.83
for the plate he had. He piled
on three or four sandwiches,
nine Polish sausages, about
a bait and a half of sauer-
kraut, a shovel full of red
cabbage and a partridge in a
pear .tree. And he must have
been raised in a large family
because he was shoveling it
in with both hands. He ate it'
all and didn't explode. That
was pretty unusual.
After lunch we get to look-


ing around this place and
come across one of those
modern roller coasters that
has that loop where you go
around upside down there
for. a while well these
young folks start in on me to
ride that thing and I had to
show them I was still young
at heart so I get on. That was
a mistake. Just before we hit
that loop I get to thinking
about all that stuff that guy
had for lunch. I survived and
I guess I'm still young at
heart it's my stomach and
legs that are old.
About the only thing that I
could find wrong with the
place besides not seeing Tar-.
zan was it's sponsored by a
brewery they even have
tours of this brewery so you
can look around and. sup-
posedly see how the beer is
made. I think that tour was a
little humorous in that we all
know that's not how beer is.

at Busch Gardens, lots of
horses.

P.S. My next "assignment"
is to cover a wedding in West

Greg and I can't recall the
girl's name. I think she is

daughter was dead.
While reading the7 book
about Ted Bundy I couldn't
help but think of little Cathy.
The victims of Ted Bundy;,
some of them still unaccount-
ed for, must have been in a
similar situation. The vic-
tiis of Ted Bundy, however,
suffered very little compared
-to Cathy. They were abduct-'
ed, raped and, shortly there-
after, killed. Their parents
and loved ones, like Cathy's,
still suffer. Memory is a gift
'that, death cannot-destroy.
Little girls are a gift of
God. They are sugar and
spice and everything -nice.
.They are priceless treasures
walking in Mother's dress
and high heel shoes with a
doll cradled in their arms.
They can steal your ,'heart
away just by running toward
you and shouting to the lop of
their lungs, "Daddy's
home!
There's a large, tender
place in my heart for Cathy
and the other girls that met a
fate so unthinkable. I love
them all and I hope 'the.
memory of them sustains
their parents and loved ones.
My daughter is nine years
old. When she is thirty-five,
and if I am alive, she will still
be "Daddy's Little Girl."

GUARANTEED

WEIGHT LOSS
Heard about the newest discovery in the war against
fat? It is absolutely amazing. Believe it or not this great
new discovery allows you to eat any kind of food you like
and still lose all the pounds you want! It's called
EC DIET PLAN or "KONJAC" Mannah.,and here's how it
works: All you do is take 2 capsules with water about
thirty minutes before each meal. This gives you the
natural feeling of fullness without even picking up your
fork. Imagine how'd you look carving: 7" off your hips...
up to 4" off your thighs...up to 5" off your buttocks and
up to 7" off your waist. No more need to suffer, exercise,
feel deprived or guilty while you lose. EC DIET PLAN is
100% safe and contains no drugs. It was first checked
out by members of the JMA (JAPANESE MEDICAL
ASSOCAITION). EC DIET PLAN is so effective, it is ac-
tually being sold with an iron clad unconditional money
back guarantee.

Win Three


Sharks Have Perfect Baseball Week


Port St. Joe's Sharks had a
perfect week, adding three
wins to their record against
no losses. The only thing to
mar the perfect week were
the heavy rains which wash-
ed out Tuesday's game with
Carrabelle, as well as a lot of
other things.
Last Thursday, the Sharks
edged the Blountstown Tig-
ers, 5-4. The Sharks scored
the winning runs in the
bottom of the fifth, when the
Sharks scored twice. Brad
Bowen reached first base on
a Tiger prror. David Bearden
then singled, moving Bowen
to third base. Bowen scored
on a passed ball to tie the
game. Tony Beard then
singled, driving in Bearden
with the winning run.
Mitch Burke started on the
mound for the Sharks and
gave up only four hits in five
innings, along with, five
strike-outs. In the fifth,
1 r


Burke had a Tiger on third
base with two out. Bearden
came on in relief and the
Tiger runner scored on a
passed ball to put Blounts-
town in the lead by one run
before t(ie Sharks came back
with their two runs. Bearden
received credit for the win.
The Shark attack was led
by Stacy Strickland with two
singles. Bearden, Chris
Butts, Beard and Jim Norton
each had a single.
Saturday, the Sharks met
Rickards of Tallahassee here
in a double header and won
both ends of the contest.
The Sharks had their sec-
ond grand-slam homer in a
week, when David Bearden
parked one over the fence in
the sixth inning, to break a
4-4 tie. The Sharks ended up
winning the first game, 9-6.
Chris Butts went the route
for the Sharks, giving up 12

hits, two walks and striking
out five.
Jim Norton was the leading
hitter in the game, going
three for three. Butts had two
hits in three at bats and Tony
Beard was two for four.
Mitch Burke went the
distance in the second game,
giving up one run, five hits
and sticking out nine Rickards
batters, for an outstanding
game on the mound.
The Sharks collected nine
hits to win the, game, 9-1.
In addition to his sparkling
performance on the mound,
Burke also had a perfect day
at the plate, collecting two
hits in two at bats. David
Bearden was two for four and
Tony Beard and Tom Pippin
each had a single.
Monday, David Bearden
was on the mound for the
Sharks and scattered one hit
and two walks while striking

out five .batters in four
innings, as the Sharks took a
10-2 win.
Tony Beard came on in
relief in the fifth and gave up
four hits and two walks, as
the Sharks stifled the Gators.
Bearden was the leading
Shark hitter with two singles.
Baseball coach, Dennis
Kizziah said of his team,
"We're on a roll right now.
We're hitting the ball well
with a team average of .328".
Kizziah spoke well of his
pitching staff. "They're 11-2
for the year and have given
up only 40 runs this season.
Only 22 of those runs have
been earned." The coach
said the team pitching has an
earned run average of 2.63.
The Atlanta Braves would
love to have that average.
, Shark pitchers have struck
out 97 thus far in the season,
for better than one strike out
per inning. ,
The Sharks have scored 119
runs this season.
WEEK'S SCHEDULE

Don't Sell



Garden



Seeds Short


BY ROY LEE CARTER
County Extension Director
Don't sell seeds short,
especially if you're planning
a large vegetable garden. A
few weeks ago I gave you
some pros and cons of
beginning vegetable gardens
with transplants, which give
you a faster start, but can be
expensive if you need a lot.
My information for this arti-
cle was provided by Exten-
sion Vegetable Specialist Jim
Stepheps, of the University of
Florida's Institute of Food
and Agriculture Sciences.
Besides costing less than
transplants, a major ad-
vantage of starting a home
vegetable garden directly
from seeds is that you can
choose from a wider selec-
tion. of varieties. A garden
center may have .several
varieties of seeds for a given
crop, but only one or two
varieties of transplants.
Also, some crops- such as
beans, corn, cucumbers, and
turnips don't transplant very
well. It's best to start these
from seeds, on the other
hand, many crops do trans-
plant well. They include
things like tomatoes, broc-
coli, collards, and lettuce. If
transplants are available for
such crops, they're probably
a better bet than: starting
from seeds unless you're
planning a very large gar-
den.
While most vegetables can
be grown from seeds, there
are exceptions such as sweet
potatoes, Irish potatoes, and
strawberries. For specific
recommendations on the
crop you want to grow, check
with your garden center, or
see your County Extension
Agent.
If you decide to start from
seeds, get the best you can
find. Seed quality could mean
the difference between suc-
cess and failure .in your
garden. So always buy good
seeds from a reliable dealer.
For a few crops, you can
save seeds from your garden.
But, for many others that
really isn't practical. Since
most: seeds are relatively
inexpensive, you're probably
better off buying those you
need, if they're available.
You should buy tested seed
varieties. IFAS scientists
test most crop varieties, and
recommend only those which
do well here. You'll have the
best chance for success if you
plant varieties with some
resistance to common Flori-
da pests, varieties recom-
mended in Extension Circu-
lar 104, "The Vegetable
Garden Guide." It's avail-
able at your County Exten-
sion office. Of course, you
can plant anything you like.
But many gardeners cheat
themselves by continuing to
plant inferior types, without
even trying those that grow
best in our state.
There is one note of caution
to keep in mind when hand-
ling seeds. Most of the seeds
you'll find at garden centers
have been treated with
chemicals, to reduce injury
and decay caused by insects


CARTER


and diseases. Usually, you
can tell when seeds have
been treated because they're
coated with brightly colored
dye.
It's a good idea to use
treated seeds. In fact, you
should always use them,
when they're available. Re-
member that the chemicals
on such seeds are poisonous.
Treated seeds should never
be eaten by people or ani-
mals. They should be hand-
led with care, and kept out of
the reach of children and
pets.
Finally, follow the planting
directions on the seed packet.
If you plant too deep, the
young plants may not be able
to reach the soil surface after
sprouting, and if you plant
too shallow, the seeds may be
washed away by rain.

The House of Represen-
tatives has passed landmark
bankruptcy legislation which
will aid farmers. Up until now,
when a storage elevator com-
pany went bankrupt, the
farmers had to stand in line with
all the other creditors. Now they
will be given a preference in
bankruptcy proceedings. This is
very significant. Although all
creditors are hurt in a bank-
ruptcy; farmers are in a par-
ticularly bad spot because their
entire year's work could be con-
tained in one company's
elevators. With this change in
the law, farmers will receive the
treatment they deserve.
The bankruptcy bill also
reforms commercial credit
operations to insure equality
between debtor and creditor.
Right now, someone can
declare bankruptcy without
making a good faith effort to
repay their debts. Now a good
faith effort must be shown in
bankruptcy courts.
The bill also clarifies the law
on labor contracts andsettles
the issue of bankruptcy judges
caused by a 1982 Supreme
Court decision. The Senate has
passed a similar bill and I am
hopeful that we will get this
measure enacted into law within
the next few days.

The House of Represen-

authorization bill, approving
programs for the coming fiscal
year. Included are start-up
funds for the space station en-

The House Committee on
Science and Technology, which
I chair, reviewed the requests
for NASA funding and we were
careful to hold the line on
spending.
While we included funds for
the continuation of the space
shuttle program and start-up of
the space station, we pruned
back other requests to insure
that this bill would not be a
budget-buster.
I have always been a strong
supporter of the manned space

The withdrawal of the
French troops from Beirut for-
mally ends the work of the
multi-national peacekeeping
force. The British, Italian and
American troops had already
left and only the French re-
mained to help try and stabilize
the situation.
The various Muslim factions
continue to fight and kill each
other in the name of religion and
the overall Lebanese situation
worsens every day.
The peace talks arranged by
Saudi Arabia and Syria have
collapsed and the once proud
and independent people of
Lebanon can only wonder
about the future. .
Right now, the United
States is not in a good position
for further action in Lebanon.
While we maintain an armada of
ships offshore, shelling the
mainland would be inexact and
could kill more civilians than
militia.
I hope we will remain ready
to aid the Lebanese people once

Eye

Openers
By Dr.
Wesley Grace


NEARPOINT STRESS
Part 1
In primitive man, the
human eye's chief function
was to spot animals and
danger from a distance.
Now, most of our work and
leisure time is spent looking
at things within an arm's dis-
tance, which can produce
visual stress.
Visual stress is the failure
of the eyes to adapt to near-
point tasks for sustained per-
iods of time. When this stress
continues, it produces eye
problems and visual discom-
fort. If you get headaches,
burning .eyes, tearing, or
your eyes tire easily after
working at close range for a
sustained period, it is likely
that your visual system
needs help.
Q. Can a person have good
distance vision and still
show signs of visual
stress?
A. Yes. However, continued
close-up visual stress can
lead to a deterioration of
distance vision and the
onset of myopia, the in-
ability to see clearly at a
distance. Some 36 percent
of all Americans are myo-
pic or nearsighted. Our
society, which begins to
emphasize near vision
tasks at a young age, has
seen a remarkable in-
crease in nearsightedness
in the school population.
The earlier myopia be-
gins, the more nearsight-
ed the person will
generally become.
