Election!

City Voters Go to Polls Tuesday


Port St. Joe voters will go to the polls
for the -first time in three years Tuesday
of next week, to cast their ballots in one
Commission race.
At stake is a two-year term for
Commissioner in Group Four in the
two-man election.
A Commission term for Group Three
was also scheduled for election Tuesday,
but there was no opposition to the
re-election of Commissioner James B.
Roberts, so he will retain his seat
unopposed.
In the one question on the ballot
Tuesday, incumbent Alton Fennell will
be opposed by Nathan Peters, Jr.
The contest is no new thing for either
candidate. Fennell won election to the
one unexpired year in the term of Com-
missioner John Robert Smith three years
ago, when Smithrdiedinrthe'middtte-of his
two year term. Peters was the opposition
then, also.
Two years ago, Fennell was returned
to office unopposed and is now seeking


his second full term on the Commission.
Both candidates are equally well-
known in Port St. Joe and each are civic
leaders in the black community as well
as being actively involved in the
complete community activities.
Fennell is the first man of his race to
serve on the City Commission. He is
hoping to be the first man of his race to
win re-election to the post. Peters is
hoping to gain the distinction of being the
second man of his race to win a seat on
the Commission.
With both candidates trying valiantly
to whip up interest for the election next
Tuesday, the contest still is at a low key
for excitement at this date.
The voter turn-out is not expected to
be in any record numbers next Tuesday,
but both candidates are hoping for a good
turn-out, for both men believe a lhrgLL
turn-out will be to their advantage.
Polling will be held at the Fire
Station behind City Hall with polling
hours from 7:00 a.m., to 7:00 p.m.

when he became employed
by the Leon County Sheriff's
Department in Tallahassee
as budget and finance officer.

and civil records, working
closely with the clerk of the
Court systems and the county
finance officer of that county.
He returned to Port St. Joe in
1979 and has been employed
by the City of Port St. Joe as
the city auditor-clerk since
that time.
Prior to 1971, Farris work-
ed in' New York City as

With the Department of
Environmental Regulation
giving communities in the
Panhandle fits about their
sewage treatment methods
and effectiveness, the City of
Port St. Joe was notified this
week they had received
approval of a grant of $99,000
to do inspection work on its
collection system pipeline.
The City of Port St. Joe,
like other Florida cities along
the low-lying coastal areas,
has problems with water
intrusion into its collection
lines, which dillutes the
effectiveness of bacteria
which has the job of digesting
the sewage. Other cities in
the area have been cited for
this very problem. Port St.
Joe, has escaped much of the
impact caused by .this prob-
lem since the local disposal
plant also disposes of wastes
from St. Joe Paper Company
and Sylvachem, Port St.
Joe's .wastes are only a
minute part of the treatment
plant load.
APPLIED FOR GRANT
Three years ago, the City
was told of the infiltration
problem by engineers doing a
study of the system. They
were instructed to file for a
federal grant at the time, to
visually inspect the lines, see
where the trouble was, and.
make repairs.
At the time, the City was.
told there were no grants
available. This week, the

The mobile unit will be

County Judge Warns Most Small Vehicles Being Operated legally


Gulf County Judge David Taunton
expressed concern in a letter to news
media in the county this week for the
*i growing number of small motorized
vehicles which pre growing in popu-
larity in the county. "These vehicles
include mopeds, go-carts, dirt bikes,
scooters, three wheelers and motor-
cycles and are becoming a definite
safety hazard to the drivers, pas-
sengers and to operators of other
motor vehicles, as well", he said.
Judge Taunton said several inci-


dents have been reported in which
operators of the small vehicles have
narrowly escaped serious injuries and
even death by operation of the
vehicles.
While Judge Taunton said he was
primarily interested in the safety of
the persons involved, he pointed out
there were certain laws and regula-
tions which were being violated by the
vehicles and their operators. Any
motor-driven vehicle which operated
on a public street or highway must


have a tag and the driver must be
licensed. The Judge says this rule
applies even to the mopeds which
have less than two horsepower. A
license may be obtained at age 15 for
such vehicles if the horsepower is five
or less. If the horsepower is greater
than five, the operator must be at
least 16 years old in order to become
licensed.
"This one rule means that no
person under age 15 may legally
operate a motor driven vehicle of


any kind on the public streets or
highways", Taunton said. He
pointed out that there are growing
numbers of youth in Gulf County
breaking this law every day,
increasing the probability of a
serious accident in the very near
future.
Judge Taunton said other rules
are being violated regularly, includ-
ing no helmets and no headlights.
Motor vehicles, other than automo-
biles, must turn on headlights on


public streets or highways, day or
night.
Here in Port St. Joe, complaints
have been filed with the Police
Department concerning the operation
of the small motor vehicles in the
vicinity of the Dixie Youth baseball
complex. On several occasions, small
children have nearly been run over by
other small children operating the
motor vehicles.
Although Judge Taunton doesn't


say so in his letter, the implication.
from him and the law enforcement-
agencies, is that parents will be the.
targets of cases made against the
operation of the vehicles if it continues'
in the present un-supervised manner.:
"Considering the gas savings and
the sheer pleasure of operating these
vehicles it is likely that their number
will continue to rapidly increase. If-
everyone cooperates, many unfortun-
ate, painful injuries will be prevent-
ed", Taunton said.

Beach Traffic -

Will Ge Worse Shrimp Running
Wle t rse Spring starts the shrimp running in St. Joseph's


A couple of weeks ago, we
:wrote that controls were coming
'for driving vehicles on the beach
'and that it would surely be a
-traumatic experience for those
'accustomed to this sort of recrea-
7tion, when they were forced upon
us.
After attending the public
hearing concerning controls for
.driving vehicles on the beach, we
hope we have somewhere to go
when it finally gets down to talking
.about having to do away with beach
.driving privileges altogether. As
sure as night follows day, we feel
that day is coming and it is not too
far down the road, either.
One of the prices we will have
to pay for what some people call
progress, is going to be the
} additional problems more people
will cause when they move into the
countyy and take over what has
historically been everybody's land'
'There are the swamps, the rivers,
:the creeks and the beaches. These
.areas draw people like sugar water
draws flies. More people will mean
Holes recreational lands for us. We
:can even see the day when it will be
shgrd to get onto the beaches unless
-one owns property on the beaches
odis staying in one of the high rent
dwellings which own beach pro-
.perty.
::: It's already that way in parts of
Florida and if things keep on as
They have started, they will get that
way here, too.


Right now, we can all say the
owners of the beach property are
being unreasonable in their opin-
ions that people should stay off
their property. We who do not own
beach property can be generous
and say we wouldn't be that way if
the property belonged to us. But
would we?
Right now, we can see no
reason for prohibiting driving on
the beaches. We can see plenty of
reason for ,controlling reckless
driving practices and hope law
enforcement agencies have more
luck controlling beach driving than
they have in controlling reckless
drivers on our paved streets. It's
pretty hard to stop a reckless
driver unless by some lucky
accident, a law officer happens to
be in the vicinity when it happens.
Give the county "A" for effort
in trying, though. There is a
definite problem here. It won't go
away. The fishermen are following
an urge almost as powerful as a
fish swimming upstream at bed-
ding time. It will be hard to quell
that urge. We hope some formula
can be found which will allow the
fishermen, the beach user, the
sunbather and those who just enjoy
the seashore, to pursue their
pass-time and still exist peacefully
with those who have shelled out a
lot of money to have a little portion
of that land touching water to call
their own.


The Preacher's Visit


When our preacher comes
to our house to visit, he
always calls and asks for an'
appointment. He doesn't just
"drop by" and hope that we
are home. I dophe something
wheni I need-'to talk to him
about something. It's profes-
sional courtesy and. it works
better for both parties.
There are preachers and
church workers that do not
conduct their calls this way.
Some of them just stop by
and sometimes it is at the
most inconvenient time. The
following true story is a case
in point.
Shad had just graduated
from college and, gone to
work in a plant in Natchez,
Mississippi. A close friend
from nearby Woodville, Mis-
sissippi was already working
at the plant, and agreed to
share an apartment with
Shad when he relocated
there.
It took Shad and Cliff abput
a month to locate a suitable
apartment and another week
to get moved in. After they


were all tucked neatly in the
two-bedroom, one bath du-
plex, they decided they
should have a little "house-
warming."
Getting a party together
y'as no problem. Cliff knew
quite a few people in Natchez
and there were several peo-


ple there who had attended
college with Shad and Cliff.
They invited about thirty
couples. They also stocked up
on plenty of party drinks and
light snacks. If things worked
out the way they had plan-
ned, the party would be a
"blast."


Things worked out better
than they -had planned!
About forty couples showed
up and the party lasted until


about three. o'clock in the
morning. A good time was
had by all. It goes without

Will Rogers Says "Everybody Is

Ignorant Only on Different Subjects"


By Kesley Colbert
You know, there seems to
be a guy in every group, or
community or family or
whatever that knows every-
thing about everything. Does
somebody come to mind?
See what I mean? Well, don't
you just love them. You
bring a subject up and they
can tell you all about it. I've
always been in awe of those
people. Mostly because I
realized at an early age that
I didn't know much about
anything.


I mean I was 15 years old
before I knew my elbow
from a hot rock. I remember
when the TVA finally got
electricity back up in the
hollow where we lived, that
was about 1956 or 57, and
boys I tell you, I could hardly
believe it. You just pulled the
chain and the light came on
- it had to be magic. You
wanted the light off just
pull the chain. I sure didn't
understand how it worked
and I must of worn out 9 or 10
chains trying to figure out


how the light came through
those wires..
Well, I had a second cousin
lived on up the hollow from
us named Gus Bradfield.
Gus was about a year older
than me and he knew every-
thing. It didn't matter what
we got to talking about, Gus
was the final authority on it.
He settled all our arguments
over who was the better ball-
player Stan Musial or Ted
Williams; who was the bet-
ter singer, Webb Pierce or
Stonewall Jackson; who the


best looking girl at school
was (and that was a tough
one 'cause the pickins were
slim we had a beauty con-
test one year and fourth
place was the highest they
gave). He even knew what
the folks in New York City
was a wearing from year to
year. Shucks, old Gus told us
that he'd even been to Nash-
ville. He also told us to be
careful and not cut them new
electric wires 'cause if we
did all our light would leak

Premiere Muammar Khadafy
S apparently doesn't care what the
,world cares about him or for the
aadtions of his terrorists.
All of a sudden, the world
S knows what some of us have known
!al along... Khadafy is a madman
.iwho is thrusting terrorism on all
the world for no other reason than
e apparently likes to see the na-
,,tions squirm.
Being tossed out of England
,probably won't matter to him.
"Being tossed out of the United
States if our State Department
.should ever toss his people out -
-won't bother him in the least.
He couldn't care less.
Nobody attacks his nation with
atomic bombs for his terrorist
activities. Nobody invades' his
: nation to shut down his clandistine
operations. Nobody sends their
;:navy to patrol his coastline to


contain his minions of death.
Nobody even stops buying his oil to
try and starve him out or cut off his
revenue. ..
Khadafy seems t9 just keep on
rolling along as he wishes, doing
his thing and exporting his special
brand of foreign aid almost with
immunity.
Evidently the man has no
conscience. If the United States even
is suspected of such an operation,
there is such an uproar in Congress
and the rest of the world, one would
think it was the second coming or
some other such important event.
We suspect the difference in
the two cases is in the size of the
conscience. Khadafy has none -
ours is too big.
Frankly, we had rather our
nation have a conscience which
was too large than to have none at
all.


A Little Bit of This and That to Get the Month of May Started


THE AIR CONDITIONER went
ion the other day. It went on for only a
:few fleeting minutes, to sort of cool
'things down and do away with the
:heavy humidity, but it went on here at
I:the office, nevertheless.
It has been a fine time for the past
-two months, with the heater off for the
:summer and the air conditioner not
-yet put into service. The old pocket-
-book gasped in relief in not having to
.shell out for those high energy
;'charges and the old body was its most
:comfortable of the year. You can't
;beat that time of the year between the
-heater and the air cooler.
Even Easter morning, this year,
was a fine morning. It's an unusual
:year when Easter morning doesn't
,:come down on us with a blast of cold
air and bring out the topcoats at the
sunrise services.
But not this year. The weather
was nice and balmy and the crowds
indicated it as they settled back on the
hard concrete bleacher seats at the
football stadium and listened to Rev.
Dave Fernandez deliver an excellent
:message about that first day of the


week, long ago.
I heard someone remark that
Brother Dave is one of those pastors
who periodically comes to our town,
who is a pastor to the community as


Kesley Colbert, the Tennessee
"Volunteer" with the bulge in his
cheek, came by and apologized for
ever even thinking he should receive

well as to his church.
I couldn't agree more.
Brother Dave does the Oak Grove
Assembly of God church proud for
having the foresight to call him as
their pastor.

I HATED TO WRITE last week's
column, but since it has been done,
I'm glad. It got results.


esley R. Ramsey


I didn't realize I was so well paid
"in kind," Kesley remarked. "I
thought all along one had to receive a
remittance in coin of the realm in the
palm of one's hand in order to be paid.
Now, I find out different. There's
ways to get paid and then there's
other ways to get paid."
I'm surprised Kesley had to have
me teach him that lesson. After all, he
was a school teacher for several years


before he started building abstracts
for a living and writing columns for
his good civic deed.
Wendell Campbell, the country
boy brought in from the country, but










still with a king size portion of country
still in his make-up-still hasn't come
by and acknowledged his remunera-
tion was above and beyond that which
money could buy.
But then, Wendell has a funny
idea about money. You know how
some of those farmers are about
getting paid on Saturday.

SENATOR DEMPSEY BARRON


stuck his foot in his mouth and twisted
it the other day. It could be that the
Senator was quoted out of context, too.
Dempsey is one of those convert-
ed poor dirt farmers who struck it rich
in the big city. He still clings to the old
"penny saved is a penny earned"
theory in this day and time when the
motto is "spend it today because you
may not have it tomorrow".
Dempsey was trying to explain
how his friend, Senator Warren
Henderson was quoted out of context
and as a result the meaning and
context of his remarks were complete-
ly misconstrued.
I don't know Senator Henderson,
so I don't know for sure just what he
said and how he said it.
I do know Senator Barron and
have never known him to speak in
double meanings before. If he meant
his remarks toward Senator Carrie
Meek as a slur, I feel it would be clear
to everyone what he meant and how
he meant it. If the newspapers and
television have to "suppose" he
meant something, or "interpret" his


I Off Right

remarks in the proper attitude, you
can bet Barron wasn't serious about
what he said. It must have been about
like a Polish comedian telling a Polish
joke.
At any rate, Senator Barron tried
to explain the misunderstanding in the
remarks by Senator Henderson and
was misunderstood himself.
It happens now and then.
IT WAS A SAD thing the other day
to read in the papers where a
six-year-old first grader was arrested
up in one of the northern states for
having a marijuana cigarette hidden
in his stocking.
Six years old!
This little fellow wasn't even old
enough yet to play Little League and
he gets busted for having a weed in his
possession.
The guy who sold or gave that
cigarette to the little boy should have
his tail put under the jail for a hundred

sucking the bottle before some scum
had him sucking dope.

saying that their apartment
looked like a cyclone had hit
it the next morning.
Shad said it was about
eight o'clock Sunday morn-
ing' when he heard the
doorbell ring. Thinking it was
someone who had left some-
thing in the apartment the
night before, he slipped on a
pair of shorts and opened the
door.
Standing in the doorway
was a man who identified
himself as a lay preacher,
and asked if he could come in
for a few minutes. Confused
and disoriented from lack of
sleep and the lively libations
of the night before, Shad
foolishly admitted him en-
trance. In less than two
minutes Shad realized he had
made a grave error. The
preacher could not find a
place to sit.
After they had moved
several glasses- some of
them still half-full- a couple
of ash trays that were
overflowing and a forgotten
purse, the preacher sat down
@' and looked sadly at Shad.
The preacher then pulled
out a small Bible and, for
about fifteen minutes, read
scripture dealing with the
adversity of living a life filled
with "wine, women and
song." Then he stated, "let's
bow our heads and pray."
While the preacher was
praying Shad happened to
look up and toward the
bedroom door. There, peer-
ing through a crack, was
Cliff, with his hand over his
mouth, snickering at Shad.
That childish display of
mockery infuriated Shad to
no end. He was sitting there
suffering while his friend,
roommate' and partner in sin
was peering at him, making
fun of his discomfort.
Suddenly flash of inspira-
tion hit Shad!
When the preacher had
finally finished praying for
the heathens that drank and
ran around with wild women,
Shad said, "Preacher,
there's something I want to
tell you. When you rang my
doorbell I was getting ready
to go to church. I am a
member of the church down
on Tenth Street and I attend
Regularly. My roommate,
however, doesn't go to
church. I sometimes wonder
if he even believes ifp God"
"As you can see by this
house he is a very heavy
drinker. If there's anyone
who needs your help and
prayer, it is he. Would you
help him?"
"Yes, by all means" was
his immediate reply. "What
do you think I should do?"
Shad seemed to think for a
moment and then said,
"Well, the first thing you
could do is come back here
where he's passed out and
pray for him."
Cliff never made fun of
Shad again after that prayer.

more than 30 or 40 yards
across that creek and I
always kind'a doubted it
could be done until I saw that
Tarzan picture show and
then I allowed as how Gus
might have made it. But I
think back on it now and still
wonder... I guess Gus could
have had a fault or two. But I
remember you could. tell
your best story and old Gus
could top it. He was some-
thing else.
. He was the self-acclaimed
best coon hunter in all of the
hills where we grew up. And
hed was,of course, an author-
ity on coon dogs. and quite
naturally he had the best dog
in the world. Old Tennessee
Blaze had won all sorts of
world hunts; now I never
saw any ribbons but Gus said
he had 'em and I took it as
fact.
Well, we decided to go
hunting late one evening
and we hollered up the dogs
out from under the house and
met Gus and Blaze over by
Everitt's Lake; Bobby Brew-
er came with his two red-
bones, and with Blaze and
the three dogs my brother
and I brought we had about
six dogs and all night we
was fixing to do some serious
hunting. Now nobody ever
.called Bobby Brewer by his
right name. He was known
by young and old alike as
Yogi; I never did know how
he came by that particular
nickname and I doubt that
Yogi even knew. Come to
think of it, I should have ask-
ed Gus he'd a known for,
sure. Something else odd
about Yogi, he lived in the
same hollow with us, but as


OBITUARIES:

Funeral Services for

Mrs. Brenda Wood, 39


Mrs. Brenda Wood, 39, of
1017 Long Avenue, Port St.
Joe, passed away early Sun-
day morning at Gulf Coast
Community Hospital. She
had been a resident of Port
St. Joe for 16 years, and was

far as I know he wasn't kin.
That might have been one of
the reasons, I liked him so
much.
Well, we take these dogs
down the road to a spot we
know the coons had been
crossing and we turn them
into the woods. That is, we
turn most of them into the
woods. Yogi, who for a quiet
guy could surprise you at
times, catches old Blaze
without Gus seeing him and
ties him to a tree just off the
road. As they would say in
those "B" grade movies, the
plot thickens.
We sit down beside the
road and wait it don't take
long. One of the dogs strikes
a hot trail and starts talking
to us. Of course Gus immed-
iately declares that old Blaze
struck the trail first. Then
they jump the coon and the
race is on. Gus, as always, is
giving the play by play.
Blaze is out front barking
every breath, PR Hatchie
Bottom Sassy, my dog, is
running second,. Old Blue
and Patsy, then Yogi's two
redbones. Then Patsy who's
a young dog moves into se-
cond place but still a good
distance behind Blaze. Gus
is listening to these dogs
barking and by the sound of
their voices he got each one
placed in the chase. Then
they tree about a half mile
up the ridge. Gus really gets
excited now as he relates to
us how Blaze treed first and
was now barking up and
wouldn't move till we got to
'em, climbed up and poked
that coon out. He did con-
gratulate my little brother
as he said Patsy was the se-
cond dog to bark tree.
He was jumping up and
down and yelling "Speak to
me, Blaze" as loud as he
could when Yogi led Old
Blaze up on the road. Well,
sir, Gus takes a look at
Blaze, then he looks off
toward the sound of the other
dogs where his dog is suppos-
ed to be, then he looks over
at us and says, "One thing I
forgot to tell you boys Old
Blaze is a ventriloquist."

Perhaps you sent a lovely
card,
Or sat quietly in a chair.
Perhaps you sent a funeral
spray,
If so we saw it there.
Perhaps you spoke the
kindest words,
As any friend could say;
Perhaps you were not there
at all,
just thought of us that day,
Whatever you did to console
our hearts,
We thank you so much
whatever the part.

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" Mannan 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
ASSOCIATION). EC DIET PLAN is so effective, it is ac-
tually being-sold with an iron clad unconditional money
back guarantee.

have access locally to ser-
vices designed to promote
mental health 'wellness' and
treat a variety of mental
health related problems,"
Ailes continued. "The Gulf
County Guidance Clinic, Inc.
is part of a nationwide
system of agencies deliver-
ing care at the local level.
Although established just
twenty years ago, this sys-
tem provided services last
year to an estimated 4.5
million Americans who
otherwise might not have had
access to mental health care.
We are very proud of that
record."
"There are, however, still
far too many people not

receiving the care that they
need. The Council for Under-
standing Mental Illnesses
estimates that some 19 milli-
on Americans with mental
health related problems do
not seek any kind of counsel-
ing, treatment, or other
mental health services,"
Ailes rioted. "Increased
awareness of mental illness
and mental health care can
assist in breaking down some
of the reluctance to request
help. Community mental
health clinics and centers
offer prevention and educa-
tion programs which contri-
bute to public understanding
and encourage people to take
advantage of the services
they need," Ailes said.
According to Ailes, "There
is a wide range of mental
health resources in this area,
and, during Mental Health
Month, we urge everyone to
familiarize themselves with
all the available resources.'"
At the Gulf County Guidance
Clinic, Inc., Ailes indicated
that a complete range of
mental health outpatient ser-


vices are available for all
ages of individuals who ex-
perience difficulties ranging
from mild adjustment prob-
lems to serious emotional
disturbances. Complete psy-
chodiagnostic services are
available for children and
adults. Psychotherapy or
counseling services are also
available for individuals,
groups, married couples, and
families. Aftercare services
including therapy and medi-
cation are available for per-
sons returning from hospital
settings. Consultation ser-
vices are available to
schools, -law enforcement
agencies, physicians, courts
and other community agen-
cies or care-givers. Educa-
tional services involving pre-
ventative programs such as
parenting workshops, weight
control programs, smoking
cessation groups and other
general mental health educa-
tion are also available. The
Clinic provides twenty-four
hour emergency services for
crisis counseling, suicide
prevention, and evaluation


for emergency hospitaliza-
tion. Specialized classrooms
are also available for emo-
tionally disturbed children.
Anyone in need of mental
health services through the
Gulf County Guidance Clinic
may contact the Guidance
Clinic on a twenty-four hour
basis by telephone 227-1145.
Further questions may be
directed to the Clinic's Exe-
cutive Director, Edwin R.

Leads On A Chase


Sheriff's Department dep-
uties finally cornered Fred-

nearly four days.
Hicks, a resident of High-
land View, had been chased
by the Sheriff's Department
int he Highland View and
Beaches areas in an attempt


to arrest him for a probation
violation, with the fugitive
able to stay just a step or two
ahead of the searchers.
Hicks was also charged
with aggravated assault
when he threatened a citizen
who was assisting the Sher-
iff's Department, with a
hatchet.
The chase was started in

Burglars broke into
Roche's Furniture Store on
Williams Avenue here in Port
St. Joe last week, taking a
quantity of merchandise,
valued at approximately
$1,000 according to store
manager, David Roche.
The thieves broke into the
back door and took three
television sets and a micro-
wave oven as well as a small
amount of change from the
cash register.
There have been no leads
yet in the case, which is
under investigation by the
Gulf County Sheriff's office
and the Port St. Joe Police
Department.

services beginning Sunday
at Beach Baptist Chapel.
Revival will begin at morn-
ing worship services at 11:00
and will continue through
Friday, May 11th, at 7:00
each evening.
Sunday night services will
be at 6:30 p.m. Rev.
Mathews is a former pastor

rant(From Pg. 1)

told the City could not sell the
property for less than it was
appraised without severe
criticism from state audi-
tors. Leslie replied, "I'll be
honest with you, I had
planned to bid much less than
the appraised price."
Commissioner James B.
Roberts said the City might
work up a plan to lease the
property, but that avenue
would have to be explored
further.
Leslie said he would be
willing to lease and agreed to
investigate the possibilities
further with Roberts and
attorney William J. Rish,
who was absent at Tuesday's
meeting.
BOAT LAUNCH
Commissioner Roberts re-
ported he had been in contact
with a pile driving firm about
driving sheet steel piling for
repairs to the boat launching
slip at the west end of Fifth
Street in St. Joseph Bay.
Roberts said his estimate
is that it will cost the City in
the vicinity of $30,000 to get
the piling driven and con-
struct a concrete walkway
along both sides of the
launching slip.
City Clerk Alden 'Farris
said he had found out the City
will have to get permits if
they change the size or
location of the docking facili-
ties in any manner; "We're
going to put them back in the
same place and the same
size", Roberts said. "In that
case, you won't have to go
through the process of get-
ting a new permit", Farris
said.
Farris said he would con-
tact the U.S. Corps of Engin-
eers about the project and
have them meet with repre-
sentatives of the City to
advise them of just what the
City wants to get done.
OTHER BUSINESS
In other business matters,
the Commission:
-Agreed to an arrange-
ment to furnish treated water
to Highland View through the
Beaches supply main.
i-Agreed to put summer
sewer charge rates in effect
beginning with the May bill
to be received on June 1. The
special rates will go through
September and must be
applied for by the customer.
-Took five different bids,
and awarded final orders on
four of the items with nego-
tiations still to be made on
the fifth.
The City purchased a dozer
blade from Burford Equip-
ment Company for $5,288.00;
purchased a pick-up truck
from St. Joe Motor Company
for $8,388.81; purchased
parts for the Wastewater
Plant from Rietz Manufac-
turing Company for $17,300,
and 10 ceiling fans for the
Centennial Building from
Western Auto for a total of
$999.00.
The City will negotiate a


Day, Sat.,
Port St. Joe's merchants
have a big day planned for
Saturday, June 2, when they
will sponsor and promote a
"Summer Homecoming"
day here in the City to mark
the beginning of the summer
season and welcome the
tourists back to Gulf County
beaches.
While the celebration is a
vehicle for a city-wide sale,
this year's event will be
different. It'will be different
in that the merchants are
inviting those churches,
clubs, organizations, etc.,
which would like to set up a
food booth to register their
intentions. Also, provisions
are being made for private
individuals, neighbors or
families to operate their own
flea market-type sales on
Reid Avenue in downtown
Port St. Joe.
The merchants have made
arrangements to close Reid
Avenue, between First and
Fifth Streets, to vehicular
traffic all day long on June 2.
Those wishing to set up
food booths or flea market
booths should fill out the
adjacent registration slip
and mail it-to P.O. Box A,
for space assignment. Regis-
tration fees of $5.00 will be


price quoted for four units of
aluminum bleachers. Bids
were received from four
different firms.


June 2
charged for each space.
Response has been consid-
erable, even afterthe initial
announcement of the special
plans last week.
Only 'a portion of Reid
Avenue has been set aside for
commercial operations and a
portion for private markets,
so those wishing to partici-
pate in the special day should
start making plans and sign
up for their space now,
according to merchants as-
sociation president, Wayne
Taylor.

with normal vision can do
this.

ty to see the ball in motion

Sharks Win


Port St. Joe's Sharks won
the Regional play-off game
against Hamilton County's
Jasper Tuesday; night, 2-1,
advancing to Sectional play
on Friday of this week: ,
The Sharks had pitcher
David Bearden turn in a
no-hit performance for their
big win Tuesday, with Mitch
Burke getting the winning
run on a towering sixth
inning homer over the left
field fence.
Jasper scored their lone
run in the first inning off a
walk, a stolen base and a wild
pitch.
The Sharks countered in
the bottom of the second,


when Chris Butts doubled
and was driven home by
Mitch Bouington's triple. The
sixth inning homer by Burke,
the double by Butts and triple
by Bouington, were the only
hits for the Sharks in the
game.
David Bearden struck out
13 batters and walked only
three in chalking up his first
no-hitter.

The Sharks had a 6-5 win
over Wakulla and a last
minute 9-8 victory over Flor-
ida High last week in the
District tournament to get
the chance to advance in the
play-off system toward the


Region

state championship.
Thursday afternoon, the
Sharks took a 6-5 win over
Wakulla with Tony Beard
clubbing the winning hit, a
two-run homer, in the fourth
inning to win for the Sharks.
It was Beard's first homer of
the season.
Stacy Strickland, who has
been used mostly in relief all
season long by the Sharks,
started on the mound and
went four innings, getting the
win to his credit.
David Bearden had three
hits in four trips to the plate
for the Sharks.

Friday afternoon, the
Sharks met Florida High in
the District finals. Florida
High was responsible for two
of the Sharks' four losses this
year. It looked as if the
Demons would make that
three wins over the Sharks,
running up an 8-0 lead going
into the fourth inning. Flor-
ida High had scored three
runs in the first inning and
three more off starter Mitch
Burke in the second, before
Burke was lifted for David
Bearden on the mound. Two
more runs scored before
Bearden could get the side
out. .


ial


Tournament


Bearden scattered two hits
in the last five innings,
striking out five and giving
up two walks.
Meanwhile, Shark hitters
were picking away at the
Demon pitchers and charged
back with four runs in the
fourth inning, three in the
sixth and two in the seventh
for the win.
The Sharks ended the
game with 10 hits for their
nine runs.
Kyle Pippin singled in the
winning run in the top of the
seventh, for the Sharks 19th
win of the season.
Pippin had two doubles,a
single and five RBI. Mitchell
Bouington ripped three dou-
bles while Bearden stroked a
double and a single.

The Sharks will host the
Sectional play-off here Fri-
day evening in a game which
is scheduled to begin at 7:30
p.m.
The Sharks will meet Pace
for the chance to go the state
tournament.
Pace defeated Vernon, 6-2,
Tuesday afternoon. Vernon
was one of the teams which
-dealt the Sharks one of its
four losses on the regular
season.


The Sharks evidently listened well, because
they won, 2-1 behind the no-hit pitching of
David Bearden. -Star photo

David Bearden tugs at the bill of his cap Tuesday
evening as he concentrates against Jasper and wound up
with a no-hitter in the Regional play-off game.

Begonias Provide Variety, Constant Color Display

BY ROY LEE CARTER other annuals. other annuals, making them 50 percent) of organic matter Most fibrous-rooted be- however, there are several may be infested with disea-
County Extension Director --- .suitable for use in pots, such as peat moss, leaf mold gonias, with the exception of problems. These cuttings ses and-or insects.


If you like variety and a
constant display of color
throughout the season, you'll
love begonias. The begonia
family contains more than
1200 species and hybrids with
an infinite selection of sizes,
growth habits, foliage and
flowers. Some begonias
creep and crawl, some grow
like a tree, and some are
bushy. Many resemble other
plants, with leaves like elm,
palm, maple, ivy and other
plants. My information for
this article was provided by
Extension Horticulturist Dr.
Robert Black.
The begonia is chiefly of
tropical origin. It was first
discovered in Santa Domingo
in 1690 by Charles Plumier,
who named the flower for his
patron, Michel Begon. Be-
gonias are essentially classi-
fied according to the types of
roots they possess: Tuber-
ous; Fibrous; and Rizoma-
tous. The tuberous begonias
are primarily propagated
from tubers, whereas the

fibrous-rooted begonias pos-
sess fibrous -roots and are
propagated from seed or
cuttings. The Rex begonia is
an example of a rizomatous
begonia. It possesses a thick,
rootlike rhizome which
grows either erect or hori-
zontal.
The fibrous-rooted or wax
begonias are the most popu-
lar with homeowners. They
are frequently sold as- a
house plant, holiday plant or,
bedding plant. To be most
effective as 'bedding plants,
begonias should be used in
mass rather than mixed with

r ormer Ly, ul rous-rooteU
begonias were mostly non-
hybrid varieties and these
varieties grew best in partial
shade. Today's hybrids are
not restricted to a partial
shade location; in fact, they
perform better when planted
in full sun.
Under Florida's growing
conditions, fibrous-rooted be-
gonias stand drought and
heat better than many annu-
als. In addition, begonias will
not grow out of bounds and
can be planted close together
in a relatively small area.
Begonias grow slower than


window boxes, flower boxes
and hanging baskets. Be-
gonias are virtually insect
free and resistant to pesti-
cide injury.
Begonias offer many varia-
tions in flower and foliage
color. Green, bronze, and
variegated foliage are avail-
able with white, pink or red
flowers.
Begonias thrive on light,
slightly acid, well-drained
soil. To improve the soil
structure and increase the
water holding capacity, add
a substantial amount (up to


or well-rotted manure. Be-
gonias are not heavy feeders,
so fertilizer should be applied
sparingly. Apply 1 to 11/? lbs.
of a complete fertilizer (8-8-8
or 10-10-10, etc.) to 100 sq. ft.
of bed area.
Begonias tend to grow
somewhat larger if grown
outdoors in a flower bed,
where root growth is not
restricted. In flower pots or
planters, they usually do not
grow quite as large. Plants.
should be placed 8-12 inches
apart for the best effect in the
garden, and somewhat closer
in containers.


Trees Produce Oxygen


Supply Breathed by Man


There are all sorts of
yardsticks to measure the
value of trees to people but
one of the most important to
everyone is the output of
oxygen into the air.
It is estimated that one
acre of healthy young trees
can supply enough oxygen to
supply the constant needs of
15 to 18 persons. In the
process, the trees remove the
carbon dioxide from the air
which was placed there part-
ly through the breathing of
animals.
Statistics from the Florida
Division of Forestry, Depart-
ment of Agriculture and
Consumer Services, say that
more than 17 million acres of
Florida land are covered
with forests, thus assuring an
excess of fresh, pure oxygen


for the uses of animals.
Other statistics about
trees, individually and col-
lectively, also are of interest
to people.
Costing only a few dollars 0
acquire and plant, trees can
add 10 percent or more to the
value of your home and yard
when they grow large enough
to provide shade and shelter.
Trees can reduce the costs
of cooling and heating your
home by considerable
amounts by shading out the
hot sun and slowing winter's
cold winds.
Trees provide the wood and
other materials that are
turned into many thousands
of items for people's every-
day use. Paper is possibly the
most common, but the list
also includes lumAber for
buildings, plastics, fibers,


Energy Code Date

Delayed to June 1


The effective date for the
new Florida Energy Code
has been extended to June 1,
1984, Secretary of the Depart-
ment of Community Affairs
Dr. John DeGrove has an-
nounced.
'the code, originally sche-
duled to take effect April 2,.
tiFf6tens energy efficiency'
standards for new building
construction in the state. The
revised code was first sub-
mitted to the Secretary of
State's office in January, but
was later modified following
requests from the Florida
Homebuilders Association to
allow for certain compliance
options for specified types of
new buildings and additions
to existing ones.
Jack Haslam, commenting
for the department, said
extension was necessary be-
cause the new code has not
yet been distributed to all of

others.
Trees prevent soil erosion
not only by holding the dirt
together, with a network of
roots but also by covering the
ground with mulch and litter,
which breaks the force of
falling raindrops. The forest
also store and regulate the
discharge of fresh water, and
the vast amounts pumped
back into the air by the
leaves of the trees also is
cleansed and purified.
Trees provide shelter and
food for animals of many
kinds, from the birds in
suburban backyards to the
bears and panthers which
are battling to survive in the
forests.
Trees are a natural re-
source which can be renewed
and increased to whatever
level is demanded. Current-
ly, the value of wood-based
business activities in Florida
generate an estimated $5.6
billion in economic benefits
every year.
For every $1 worth of wood
harvested in the forest, an
additional value of $36.96 is
added through the manufac-
turing, remanufacturing,
transportation and retailing
of the wood.
Employment in wood-using
industries of. Florida current-
ly amounts to nearly 53,000
persons, who are paid about
$750 million per year in
payrolls.


the double flowered varie-
ties, are propagated from
seed. The double flowered
varieties are sterile and have
to be propagated from cut-
tings. Purchasing seed and
germinating them is not a
good practice, since good
begonia seed are expensive,
very small and difficult to
germinate. Many people take
cuttings from plants grown in
their yard all summer. Be-
gonias are easy to root,

cally St. Joseph's Spit, Indian
Pass Beach, in Cape San
BIas. Pickett proposed the

Beach located in the southern


portion of Gulf County name-
ly St. Joseph's Spit, Indian
Pass Beach, in Cape San
Bias, for the purpose of'

beaches, and Pete White
presented a petition with
approximately 100 signa-
tures (petition just circulated

up an ordinance, making

areas, and some way provide
the Sheriff with extra man-
power to make some arrests.
Comm. Branch stated he
agreed with Pickett's idea of
permitting and moved the
Board hold a public hearing
to consider this permitting
system, requesting PicKett
attend this meeting. Comm.
* Money seconded the motion
for discussion. After discus-
sion, the motion passed un-
animously, The public hear-
ing is to be held at the next

Tuesday of next week will
officially be the last day of
high school for the gradu-
ating Class of 1984! As a
result, this will be the last
issue of Shark Scoops. I
sincerely hope that my
column has been as benefici-
al to my readers as it has to
its writer.
Through Shark Scoops, I
have been able to develop a
close relationship with my
school, not looking through
rose-colored glasses, but
even as an "anticipating"
senior. As a result, I can
honestly say that St. Joe High
is SUPER!!. I shall never
forget the memories that it
has provided my classmates
and me. I hope that in each
following year, a lucky senior
will have-take the privilege
of doing the school news for
both him-herself and the-
community. If interested, see
Mrs. Biggs. It's been
GREAT!
