New Overstreet Bridge Anounced


DOT Says High Rise Bridge to Be Constructed In Fiscal 1985-86


Florida's Department of
Transportation is going full
speed, ahead with plans to
construct a high pse bridge
across the Intracoastal Canal
at Overstreet, according to


word received by The Star
this week from a DOT
spokesman.
According to the source,
construction work on the
bridge will begin in the 1986


fiscal year, which begins in
July, 1985.'
Planning for a high rise at
Overstreet was talked about
a few years ago, but the
project died out and was all


' It'nay'look slightly run down, but this conglomeration of timbers steel
ind baliik w'~i, is the floating draw bridge which carries vehicular traffic
,eross the Intracoastal Waterway at Overstreet. The last of its kind in


but forgotten., Gulf County
'had even traded some land
with DOT, giving the state
agency property adjacent to
the Canal crossing which
'would straighten out the


*present road for a high rise
construction.
Replacing the old floating
drawbridge at Overstreet
with a modern high rise
would mean the end of an

DOT spokesmen. -Star photo


era. Overstreet's floating
bridge is the last such
structure in Florida. This
particular bridge has served
long and well and there is no
indication whether or not it
will be moved to another
location.
The. floating bridge at
Overstreet has been in Gulf
County for a long time. It was
placed at Overstreet to re-
place a ferry operation, when,
the Overstreet Road was only
i a sand trail through the.
western Gulf county woods.
Prior to that time, the
present floating bridge span-
ned the Intracoastal Canal at
'White City on State Highway
71. When, the present draw
.bridge was. built at White
City in the middle 1940's, the
floating bridge was, moved to
Overstreet.
When the Overstreet high
Srise span was first proposed
'some six or seven years ago,
.'Port 'St. Joe was in the
middle of a big push to
persuade DOT to replace the
draw span' at Highland View
with a high rise span because
.the present draw bridge was
in a state of bad repair and.
was undependable in its
operations. Later,, the push
continued as ah aid to a
planned deep water port
operation here, a pan which
has since been put on "hold"
due to the world export-


import market slump.
When the Overstreet plans
began to. surface, and opposi-
tion to the project was voiced
from some Overstreet resi-
dents, Port St. Joe interests
tried to get the bridge funds
transferred to the Highland'
View project, to no avail..
NO PLANS RELEASED
No statistics on the bridge
have been released as yet by
DOTas to the new bridge's,
dimensions. The whole pro-
ject seems tobe of a hurry up
nature. Since the project-
seemed to die several years:
ago, its resurrection must
have been brought about by
the tremendous amount of
barge traffic, going through
the present draw span,-gen-
erated by the Material
Transfer coal handling depot
herein Port St. Joe. The MTI
coal shipments are received
'in over-size barges, which
barely fit through the present,
draw span. The number of'
barges each' day and week
also create a hazard at the:
old floating bridge with the.
.number of openings the traf-
fic generates. I
Gulf County interests have
also long worked fot .a
stationary, bridge at Over-
street to' serve as a safety
outlet, to residents of the
Beaches during ti*ees of
storms and hurricanes.
The DOT source didn't say


how long construction was
expected to take.
COUNTY OWNERSHIP
Along with building the
bridge, DOT is also entering
into a program of widening
Overstreet Road from one
end to the other and resurfac-
ing the entire road. Present
ly, the highway is a narrow.
road, built initially as a
secondary, farm to market
road/ .
After the road is re-built, .
re-surfaced and .the bridge
completed, the entire cotm-
plex will be turned over to
Gulf County to maintain in
the future. In keeping with its.
present program of turning
all but primary roads overto
counties to own and main-'-i
tain, the Overstreet Road ,
will follow a number of roads. -, '
in Gulf County which have .,
already been turned over lto '..
the county. I
The latest of these road is
State Road 22, between W- '
wahitchka ar)d Panama City,
which Gulf County maintains
is a primary road,/but DIT
claims otherwise.
Construction costs on.je '
new bridge .are expected to-' '
.run around $7.4 million, '
according to the DOT source.
Resurfacing and widening
of the road is expected to cost
around $2.5 million':"

Residents Want Action Taken Before State Stops All Traffic


A group of Gulf County citizens were
. petitioning the Courity Commission Tuesday to'
Figure out a way to allow driving on south Gulf
county beaches without the danger involved
with-moving motor vehicles.
That's quite a problem.
Britt Pickett introduced the problem
saying there was an element currently
operating'vehicles on the beaches in the Cape
San Bias area which was going to cause the
state' of Florida, to move in and ban all driving
on the beaches if some steps weren't taken.
"I'm one of those who enjoys driving on the
beach", Pickett said. "I enjoy it. but some are
abusing the privilege. Most of those who drive
on the beaches do it in a safe manner. I would
like some means of controlling the element
.which is abusing the privilege and still allow
those of us who don't abuse the privilege to
enjoy driving on county beaches".
Pickett suggested some sort of no-cost
permit for local people to allow them to operate
vehicles in the area and at the same time
prohibit the use of the beaches to the unsavory
element which seems to-have moved in.
E. F.Gunn, who has a house on the beach in
question, said he also liked to drive on the
beach, "but those out of county people who
were-chased off other beaches are taking
advantage of us Gunn said the characters are
"drunk and doped up" operating noisy vehicles
in an unsafe manner, endangering lives and
destroying private property..
"They tore up my fence and used it for
fire.y6od", Gunn said.
Pete White said there should be some way


to work out a plan where local people could
continue to enjoy the beach and still keep out
the' element which is endangering its continued
. use for everyone.
Bill Schlickman, who operates Gulf Breeze
Campgrounds at Dead Man's Curve and has
come before the Commission several times
protesting unsafe use of the beaches said,
"They don't pay any attention to signs. It isn't
all outside people, either. I meet some of the'
people who operate cycles and vehicles on the'
beaches in an unsafe manner on dur streets,
every day." Schlickman also pointed out, "It's
impossible for the Sheriff to have a person
there all the -time. When I call about an
incident, they come. Still, to solve our problem'
is going to take some sort of surveillance patrol
to arrest these people while they are in action."
Pickett quipped at this point, "We didn't-
have any problem a couple of years ago in
getting enforcement when we were bothered
with nude bathers at the beaches."
Ed Knight, another campground. operator
on the Peninsula said he felt prohibiting driving
on the beach altogether would be the best
solution. "It would be difficult to give permits
to local people and tell tourists they could not
drive on the. beaches when others could",
Knight said. Knight said many of the vehicles
using the beaches are unsafe. He pointed out'
.thatif a vehicle can be driven on the beach, it
should Allso be capable of qualifying for
-highway, travel as 'well. "Many'.of these
vehicles have no mufflers andhno brakes. They
create a noise problem as well as a safety
hazard to people who'ar p n the beach".'Knight


pointed especially to the danger to sun
bathers, -who often times can't be, seen by
operators of vehicles until it is too late to avoid
them.
"Someone is going to get killed one of these
days"; someone quipped from the audience.
Commissioner Doug Birmingham suggest-
ed the: Commission and interested persons
meet with Sheriff Ken Murphy and see if .some .
effective solution could be worked out with the
problem. "He (Sheriff Murphy) may be able to
come Up with some additional manpower in the
way of auxiliary people or maybe with some'
other officers to provide special patrol at the
Beaches for a while", Birmingham said. "All,
Swe have to do is make a stiff case or twd, and
S.the matter will take care care of itself", he
said.
";': Commissioner Billy. Branch said, "If we
'handle it right and sell the idea of safety to the
'public, we can make it work". Branch then.
suggested a public hearing be held at the next-
:meeting of the Commission, at 7:00 p.m., April
24, and try' to arrive at a solution to the matter.
Birmingham seconded the motion stating,
"The: whole secret is to show people we mean
business in protecting our beaches."
y Everyone seemed to agree the problem.
could be solved if the Sheriff could station a
'man in uniform or a marked car about every
two miles on the nearly 20 miles of beach..Since
that is impossible, the hope is the public
hearing will produce some ideas which will'
allow people to get on the beaches with their
recreational vehicles and bar those who would,
use it for a race track.

Parts of 98 to be Resurfaced


The Department of Transportation re-
vealed this week, plans -to re-
surface portions of U.S. Highway 98 in and
around Port St.. Joe.
Two segments :of the highway are
scheduled for' reworking in. the Depart-
ment's work program within the next year.
Although :tw&, separate projects are
being planned for the highway, they will
both be let in a single contract.
The projects consist of resurfacing U.S.
98 from the Industrial Road intersection,
just across the Overpass, southward to


Ninth Street. in Port St. Joe. This would
resurface" the highway where it passes.
through Port St. Joe from the Overpass
to the 'First United Methodist Church.
The second project for resurfacing is in
the Highland View area, for a distance of 2.1
rhiles. The resurfacing work would com-
mence at First Street in Highland View and
extend northward for 2.1 miles which would'
extend to the area bf the'Dixie Belle curve,
The construction project is expected to
cost approximately $200,000 and the con-
tract will be jet in fiscal year 1985-86, which
commences in July of next year.

Rear Wheel Didn't Follow

.Truck'driver, Lee Davis,
of-Riverside, California said
'he had been driving.a truck "' -.
for over 20 years. He, has
logged millions of miles. On
this most recent trip, he had .
driven from Riverside. to-
Miami, then back to Port St. L
Joe and 'was planning on
starting back to Riverside
last Friday after he. loaded
up on Sylvachem products
here in Port St. Joe.
His trip back to Riverside .
was delayed a few hours.
As Davis was driving his
truck toward the old City a
Warehouse on the docks,
where Sylvachem stores '
materials for shipment, Da-
vis turned his rig into First
Street, but his rear wheels
didn't turn. They kept. on

millions of miles' driven ....
over 20 years, Davis 'forgot '
to lock his adjustable rear
wheels into place at his last '
stop. .

ed to' hold the bids until the
next meeting, of the Board.


During the ensuing two
weeks, the bids will be
analyzed by the engineers,.
the Board and a consultant
who has been hired by the
Board to oversee the project
and' its financial plan.
In the meantime, the per-
formance reputation of the
bidding firms will be ex-
amined.
Provided the bids are in
order and a firm can be
contracted to build the sys-
tem from the bidders, work
on construction of the system
is expected to begin within 60
days.
In other bidding action,
Tractor and Equipment of
Company of Panama City
was the successful bidder in
furnshing the county a back
hoe bucket at a bid of $2,786.
SRayburn and Company of


Swainsboro, Georgia, was
the successful bidder to
:furnish the county two gar-
bage trailers at a cost of
$2,500 each.
STATION SITE
E. F. Gunn reported to the
Commission an agreement
had been reached with the St.
Joe Paper Company to fur-
nish the county with about
three and a half acres of
property on which to locate a
solid waste transfer station
for south Gulf county.
Gunn said the property .is
across Industrial Road from
the present landfill site and
can be easily adapted to
accommodate the station.
"It's a good site", Gun said.
"We'll have plenty of room
and there is no problem with
over-burden (muck) to have
to be taken out".


Gunn said the county is
awaiting the approval of
DER for the site. He said the.
DER inspector should be in
the county for an inspection
within a week.
MOVING FENCE
Mrs. Willard Richards of
Highland View asked if she
would have to move a fence
off an unused alleyway at the
rear of Ihr home on Hayes
Avenue. "Other people have
gardens, sheds and other'
things on the alley, so what
problem is my fence caus-
ing?" Mrs. Richards said the
alley has never been opened
.and "so far -as I can tell, it
hasn't been used by anybody
in 30 years".
Mrs. Richards said she
didn't know why she was
being selected to be "haras-
sed" about the matter, when


others were using the alley,
also.
"I can't afford to have the
fence taken down. It took all
my money to have it put up

-i: i At a point earlier in their lives,:
imnost of the men in our city were
involved in Boy Scouts at. some
.time or' other. If you were to
-take a poll, we feel that almost 100
percent of the most influential and
::inost active men of our county as a
-whol, were members of the Boy
SScouts.
: Many of the adult men of our
city were involved 'in their Scout
activities in the same building
3vhich even now is the home of this
most stable of organized boy
activities. Even then, the floor was
falling in, daylight was a ceiling
decoration, wind whipped through
the cracks making the building
almost unbearable in the winter
time. In the' summer, lack of
insulation makes the building hot
Sand -muggy.
T There have been at least .a
dozen well-meaning attempts at
getting something done for the old
building. Rdofs have been replac-

people felt bad about.
What was really needed, was a
bulldozer to visit the' sight and
clear the way for a new building.
This is still the need.
We think everyone involved
recognizes this, but they are also
realistic enough to wonder where
the. money is coming from. No-
body's; going to bulldoze down a
building which is presently better-
than nothing at all, until something
is seen on the horizon to replace it
with.
That makes sense, even if the
building is still inadequate.
Not only does the building
serve the needs of the Boy Scouts, it
serves other purposes as well, and
could be even more useful, if it
weren't so dangerous to life and'
limb.
Already, the Scout Hut has an
official capacity other than as a
home for the Boy Scouts. The Scout
Hut is also the official Gulf County
polling place for Precinct 10. So,
you see, the Scout Hut has a useful
purpose in our community.
Another attempt is getting
under way to build a new building
on the old site. The desire is there
and the direction is correct. Build a
new building and let's be done with
all these makeshift arrangements
we have been making in the past.
And, after the building is built,
we think it should be named the
"John T. Simpson Scout Home."

children, however, society is better
off with Goode dead.
In Louisiana, the parents of a

killing, stood -and watched as
Sonnier was put to death by
electricity in Angola Prison.
We hardly believe the parents
were happy over watching Sonnier
die, because his dying could not
bring their children back to life.
Nobody likes executions, even
though those executed have com-
mitted crimes despicable to soc-

tions, we feel. they need to run,
don't walk, to'the nearest psychia-

On the other hand, those who
force society to resort to the
inhumanity of putting criminals to
death, by the severity of their
crimes, have brought about a
punishment nobody likes, but
which we must condone.

Wedding Eclipsed Only by Hog Killing


By Kesley Colbert
TRENTON, TENNESSEE


- Now when you've covered
as many weddings for the


social page as I have over
my journalistic career, you
get to where you know a real
wedding when you see one.
And I'm telling you they had
some' more ceremony up
here over the weekend. It
was the social event of the
year in Gibson County, well
almost the event of the year
- I forgot about the annual
hog killing they have over at
Frog Jump the second week-


Back


In the


Saddle
I did something the other
day that I've been wanting to
do for a long time. I bought
me some cowboy boots,
.several pairs of jeans, three
honest -to-goodness cowboy
shirts and a big, wide-brim
cowboy hat I have always
wanted to be a cowboy.
Roy Rogers is my all-time,
favorite cowboy. Roy was big
when I was a kid. He is even
bigger, in my opinion, now-'
than he was then. You see,
Roy has dedicated his life to
playing out the roles he
acted. He was always the
"good guy." Along with his
faithful horse Trigger and
fearless dog Bullet, he round-
ed up the outlaws that
stalked the Old West.
If there ever was a movie
star for young men to emu-
late, Roy Rogers is the one.
Roy never smoked, used bad
language, drank, ran around
on Dale, his beautiful wife,
and was slow to anger. He
was a super cowboy, it
seemed.
I read an article about Roy
in the newspaper this morn-
ing, and it indicated that he
has indeedlivedAllifre
t6"te dole Iayedi
almost ninrty movies th e
acted in. He and Dale also
filmed over 100 westerns for
their TV series that was
widely shown during the
1950s. Roy hasn't had much
time to get into trouble.
Roy was a dashing figure
during those early movies.
He was slim and muscular
with clean cut features and
the fastest on the draw of any
cowboy I ever saw. He could
fight for what seemed like
hours and never lose his
composure, get a cut or
busted lip and never, never
had his hat knocked off his
head. I don't recall ever
seeing him reload his six-
shooter either.

I don't really intend to make fun
of the professor's find or his claim, it's
just that I find it hard'to accept the
fact that a man, living in 1984-five
million years after the two inch piece
of bone-can tell so much from so
little
I read a letter to the editor in the
Panama City News Herald the other
day where a writer saw a sea monster
out of a few cool cans while fishing out
on the Jetties at St. Andrews State
Park How can we be sure our good
professor over in Kenya isn't using the
same identification formula?

THE ARTICLE ALSO goes on to
say this two inch piece of bone may
also be a link which will prove, once
and for all that (as the article put it)


"human ancestors broke away from
the apes".
First of all, I find it hard to believe
humans would have to "break away"
from apes. If the apes recognized any
different kinds in their neighborhoods,
and those different ones tended to
have human habits, I feel it would
have been the apes which did the
"breaking away".
Secondly, I come back to the first
argument of how can a man deter-
mine common ancestry with an ape
from a two inch piece of five million
year old bone? That's expecting a.
little much, I'd say.
The writer of the article went on
to say: "Scientists generally agree
that more than 3.5 million years ago,
the ancestors of the modern apes split
with humanity's ancient grandpar-
ents and went their separate evolu-
tionary way."
Now that paragraph makes sense.
Taking a look at how men keep their
neighborhood-tossing out two inch
pieces of bone and such-no doubt
the apes wished to have cleaner
surroundings.

(Continued from Page 2)

Simply
wore a suit with some extra
material hanging down the
back, the bride wore a white
dress that had lots of
material in it, somebody had
brought some small trees
(looked like they might be in
the palm family) and placed
them around the church and
they had a whole bunch of
candles sitting up front
which I didn't think they'd
ever get lit and when they
finally did I realized they
didn't need them because it
was in the middle of the
afternoon and there was
plenty of light in the church.
I wore my best pair of duck-
head overalls. Say I know
how to dress when attending
a wedding in West Ten-
nessee.
The music was I believe
the best I'd ever heard at
such an occasion. Lefty Wig-
gleton and his band opened
up around three o'clock (the
wedding was scheduled for
3:30) with "Rocky-Top", and
followed that up with "There
Stands the Glass" and
. "From Mother's Arms to
Korea"; then they turned old
Charlie Hume loose on the
steel guitar for a couple of in-
strumentals. Old Charlie
made that steel talk on
"Black Mountain Rag".
Then, as is Lefty's custom,
they played an old Ned
Miller tune, "From a Jack to
a King" as the groom made
his way from behind all the
palm trees to take his place
at the front of the church. I
really thought Lefty and the
boys outdid themselves
when the bride started down
the aisle they broke into a
Bob Wills' standard, "Roly
Poly".
The bride made it down to
the front and the preacher
finally got the crowd to stop
clapping and stomping their


Divine
feet (Lefty is near about a
legend in Gibson County)
and the ceremony began.
And I want you to know that
for the first time in my life I
actually heard what was be-
ing said by all the players as
I was sitting on the second
row right in the middle -
best seat in the house. I don't
know aht we paid for those
seats but it was worth it to
hear Lefty bend those str-
ings. It wasn't worth it when
it came to the actual wed-
ding the whole thing was
over in two minutes. All that
planning and preparing and
rehearsing, and I'd driven
612 miles just to get here ...
and it's over. Well, old Lefty
and the boys sure sounded
good.
Let me back up and tell
you something else that
made this wedding stand out
it was that pre-game meal
we had the night before. Now
I don't think I had any of-
ficial capacity at this wed-
ding and I don't know how I
got invited to the pre-game
meal except maybe for the
fact that my son was the ring
bearer and my wife was
some kin to the bride. The
groom's folks put this feed
on and knew something
about cooking. The baked
'possum was the best I'd
ever tasted and the stewed
green tomato sandwiches
would melt in your mouth.
Fried okra and corn on the
cob, white beans and corn
bread, I tell you, I ate for a
while. Dessert was a Ten-
nessee tradition a RC Cola
and a Moon Pie, followed by
some flipping, sipping and
dipping snuff. I tried not to
let on that maybe I wasn't
supposed to be there, I just
smiled at everybody and
shoved down the food. Only
the bride ate more than I did.


The key word at this wed-
ding was lovely. As I moved
in and out at the reception I
could hear such phrases as
"Didn't the bride look love-
ly?", "Wasn't it a lovely
wedding?", "What a lovely
day". It was 400 and overcast
and the wind was blowing
something fierce and it look-
ed like rain and it was a
"lovely" day? They must not
have many weddings in West
Tennessee. As I was leaving
the reception, one matronly
looking lady turns to me and
asked me what I thought of
the day. I didn't want to be
original and say lovely so I
looked her right in the eye
and said simply divine.
I guess it was a lovely wed-
ding but two things keep
coming back to me that still
disturb me just a little. 1.) I
never did catch the name of
the bride although I did find
out that she's my wife's
sister; and 2) That guy that
set up in the choir loft
throughout the entire pro-
ceedings with a shotgun.
Respectfully,
Kes



Saddle
(Continued from Page 2)
mounted his horse Trigger.
Trigger was a smart horse,
to say the least. He was
always in the right place at
the right time. I've seen Roy
jump off the tops of buildings
and land right in the saddle.
One time Roy ran out a door,
jumped for what seemed like
fifteen feet, placed his hands
on Trigger's rear flanks and
landed with a dull "thud"
right in the saddle. I often
wondered why Roy didn't
hurt himself, landing in the
saddle so hard. He must have
gotten used to it because he's
still riding at age 72.
Roy Rogers was a singing

What a man!
I never could figure out
how Roy made a living. He
certainly was no bounty
hunter. He caught outlaws
for the fun of' it. He didn't
have time to be a farmer or
rancher, he was too busy
catching bandits. I always
wondered when or where he
worked.
I have always admired Roy
Rogers and I still want to be
just like him. All I have to do


now is find me a twenty-thou-

horse and saddle, a fearless
dog, some spurs that jingle
and I will be set. I already
know all the words to "Back

Robot
The Northwest Florida
Drug Council- Prevention
Program has recently pur-
chased an educational robot
to enhance the existing drug
education program. Plans
are being made to use the
robot in the elementary,
schools of Jackson, Calhoun,
Holmes, Washington, Bay
and Gulf Counties.
The robot will be used to
encourage young people to
say "no" to drugs. Educa-
tional programs will be de-
veloped to make young stu-
dents more aware of the
harmful effects of drugs. It is
believed that this unique,
innovative approach will
leave a lasting impression of
the drug prevention presen-
tation.
This robot is not designed
to replace an instructor; it is
an exciting, new addition to
the prevention team. (A new
staff member has recently
been hired to operate the
robot).
