In Public Hearing Here Thursday Night


With everyone braced and
ready for an extremely con-
troversial hearing Thursday
evening, the public hearing
on what to do about scallops
and their harvesting in St.
Joseph's Bay turned out to be
a most agreeable situation.
Connor Davis, Executive

sion, and Gene Raffield, a

July 20, the postal service will be

There will be a one dollar deposit for
each key required which is refundable
upon return of the keys.
A special window will be set up and
-identified for the purpose of signing
keys and accepting deposits. If the
clerk is unable to write a receipt, he
will maintain a list and receipts will
be placed in the customer's map box.

wished to collect them.
The meeting was so amic-
able that sports fishermen
even agreed to a style drag to
,be used by commercial fish-
ermen to harvest scallops
.ahd to a bag limit for the
sports fishermen.
Dragging for the shell-fish
by commercial fishermen
stirred up the hackles of the
sports fishermen two or three
years ago and instigated a
movement to stop commer-
cial operations in St. Joseph
Bay--especially with the
drags. Under the new rules,
promoted by the Fisheries
commission, drags will be
permitted, but they must be
no more than 40 inches in
width and 14 inches in height
and, have a rounded-"'lip'.or,
leading edge designed to
skim above grass beds. Com-
mercial scallopers may have,
no more than four drags to a
boat..

Tally Man

Drowns at

State Park
A Tallahassee man be-
came the fifth drowning
victim at T. H. Stone State
Park on St. Joseph Penin-
sula, since the park was
established 17 years ago,
according to James Mock,
Ranger in charge of the park
operation.
Alvin H. Webb, Jr., 32, of
Tallahassee, drowned while
rescuing two small children
from a pounding surf on the
main beach, at the park,
Friday at about 1:00 p.m.
According .to M e
was on the beach with a
handful of other people on a
stormy, blustery day. "The
surf was heavy and nobody
was swimming. We had even
taken the lifeguards off the
beach because the seas were
so heavy", Mock said. The
two children-one about pre-
school age and the other
about 10 years of age-were
playing along the edge of the
water when they ventured
too far from the edge into the
water and couldn't get back.
Webb came to the rescue and
managed to get one child
back out of the water. He
then went after the second
child and couldn't make it
'back. Two men from Texas
took the child, bringing him
to shore and tried to aid
Webb, who apparently tired
in the heavy surf and couldn't
make it back to shore.

Tim's Day


Nets $7,000 for Operation

The Tim Strange fund is just a dab over half way to
its goal of $25,000 after the results from the "Tim
Strange. Day" have been tabulated, according to
Beverly Pitts, director of the fund raising.
The special day, held .at T. L. James Park in
Wewahitchka Saturday, raised nearly $7,000 toward
the goal which will pay for an. operation to restore
movement to the hands and feet of Strange, 22, who
was injured in a high school football game a few years
ago.
Mrs. Pitts said, "The day was fantastic. It was a
tremendous success and raised more money than we
expected".
The special "day" consisted of men's and women's
so onaments all day ong as well as
entertainment, food booths, dunking booth and -many
other activities which involved 'a lot of people working
hard and giving their time", Mrs. Pitts said.
"We're a little over half way to our goal,, but we
have a long way to go and not much time to get there",
Mrs. Pitts said. "Tim has to go into the hospital in New
York on August 2 and we have enough money to get
him in, Now, we need enough to get him out after the
surgery is done."
There may be some other fund-raising projects
prior to the'August deadline, but Mrs. Pitts said she
didn't know what they would be yet. "It takes time to
organize a good fund raiser, and we don't have much
time left."
Strange is to receive an implant in his spine at the
base of his neck, with a battery pack, which is designed
to stimulate the damaged nerves in his arms and legs
to move again. Strange has been confined to his
wheelchair ever since the football accident.
Mrs. Pitts emphasized that funds were still being
received for the trip to the hospital, even though the
special day is completed. Both the Florida National
Bank and both branch offices of the Wewahitchka State
Bank, have accounts set up for the project and
contributions may be made directly to the banks where
the money will be placed in the special accounts.

Branch Will Ask for 3 School Busses
Another Term on Board
..... In. A, idrlnt


William R.."Billy" Branch
announced this week that he
would be a candidate to seek
re-election to his post as
County Commissioner from .
District Three. Branch has -
served in the District Three,
seat for the past eight years
and he has served two terms
as chairman of the Board.
A resident of Highland
View for several years,
Branch has worked for better
organization and cooperation
among the county depart-
ments during his period on
the Commission. "I feel we
have a better working rela-
tionship with all other gov-
ernments in the county", /
Branch said.
The candidate for re-elec-
tion said he would be pointing .
to his years of experience on William R. "Billy" Branch
the board as his best qualifi-
cation for re-election in the campaign to come.
Branch says he feels his accomplishments which have
been most worthwhile have included the securing of a water
system for the Beaches area and Highland View.
The Commissioner said, "It is also especially
gratifying that the county has acquired the government
surplus land at Dead Man's Curve for parks and recreation.
The county is also expecting to receive surplus lands in
White City and at Beacon Hill in the near future."


Three of four Gulf County
school buses, loaded with
children and travelling, car-
avan style, from a day's
outing at Wakulla Springs,
were involved in an accident
last Friday afternoon.
Several of the nearly 200
children riding the buses,
were taken to Tallahassee
Memorial Medical Center for
observation and treatment,
.but all were released within
two hours and were on their
way home.
At first it appeared as if the
accident could have caused
some serious injuries and
several ambulances, includ-
ing a helicopter life flight
aerial ambulance was dis-
patched to the scene by the
hospital, but on examination,
all the young victims were
found to be only. shaken up.
The children were on a
field trip to Wakulla Springs,
sponsored by the county
recreation department. The
school buses were borrowed.


According to Fred Allen,
director of the recreation
program, the buses had just
left Wakulla Springs and
were 'about a mile from the
main entrance when Allen,
who was driving a car in
front of the caravan of four
school buses, pulled off the
road to inspect his car. The
first bus stopped to see if
Allen was in trouble and the
other three stopped behind.
Then, along came Richard
Eugene Lynn, 19, of St.
Marks, in a pick-up and
rammed into the rear of the
last bus in line, which was
being driven by Linda Purs-
well of Port St. Joe. The bus
slammed into the rear of the
third bus, driven by Chris-
tine Taylor, which in turn
struck the rear of the second
bus, driven by Versa Mc-
Cloud.
The first bus struck was
the only vehicle disabled,
with a smashed motor com-

Townhouses Come to Town


The building boom which recently started in the
beaches area of Gulf County has finally come to the city of
Port St. Joe. Leonard Costin and Dr. John Simpson (both
formerly of Port St. Joe) have started phase one of a 10-unit
patio town home development to be known as "Dogwood
Terrace".
The units are being constructed by Ward's Construction
Company and are located at the corner block of Woodward


Avenue and Ninth Street.
Each patio home will be carpeted and equipped with a
full range of kitchen appliances and a washer-dryer
hookup. The homes will also feature an energy efficient
heat pump and a living room ceiling fan.
The home sales will be handled by Century 21 St. Joseph

Marijuana Business


Is Picking Up


Raiding of marijuana fields
seems to be almost a full time job
with most of the Sheriff Depart-
ments along the Gulf Coast this
early summer.
Already, our Gulf County Sher-
iff has raided at least three, pulling
up the plants and in some cases,
making arrests of the ones accused
of doing the farming.
The crop has become so
..wide-spread that a speaker at
Rotary a couple of weeks ago,
referred to a source of income as
the largest LEGITIMATE business
enterprise in Florida. Guess what
the largest illegitimate activity is?
That's right, marijuana.
It seems the crop along the
Gulf Coast is growing off at just the
right time to peddle to the hordes of
tourists which swarm along the
Coast during the summer time,
flocking to the beaches. Those who
ire in the marijuana business seem


to be intent on seeing that the
visitors have a sufficiency of the
illegal weed while they are here.
Sheriff Ken Murphy said he
believes there is more marijuana
growing in and around Gulf County
than there ever has been before.
Almost all our neighboring
counties have also harvested large
amounts of marijuana plants.
Some of the operations are pretty
sophisticated, indicating that the
profits are large in the marijuana
business.
According to the sentences
being meted out lately to those
convicted of trafficking in the drug,
the profits are not the only thing
which is large about marijuana.
The sentences for getting caught
dealing in the weed are large, too.
In fact, they may be larger than
many of those who get caught,
bargained for when they decided to
go into the business.


An Accomplishment


We're thinking there must be
something wrong with the propo-
sals the Marine Fisheries Commis-
sion has come up with to sort of
;egulate the taking of scallops from
St. Joseph Bay and other bays in
-lorida.
One thing we learned is that
scallops are not a very important
seafood resource in the whole
scheme of things. This is probably
why their plight has been ignored
for so long.
The rules and regulations the
Commission is proposing to en-
hance the harvest of scallops by

Citizen and tourist-has found a

a newsworthy event to come out of
the state of California, but that land
- which gave us the hippie also gave
6ur nation a lift in Americanism'
recently, to go along with our
Independence Day holiday this
week.
For decades, California has
been the brunt of jokes, accusa-
tions and raised eyebrows at its
birth of controversial life-styles,
but this time they have set a trend
which the rest of the nation can
well mimic without having to
apoligize to anyone.

ground of agreement by all parties
involved. Both commercial and
private harvesters agreed on a bag
limit, season date and method of
harvesting all in one sitting at a
hearing here in Port St. Joe last
Thursday.
That's an accomplishment!
Anytime you can get any two
sides to agree after only one
hearing in Gulf County you have
accomplished something just less
than a miracle. When that agree-
ment is reached between sports
and commercial fishermen, well,
you had just better mark that date
down on the calendar, as it just
might not ever happen again.


mark its birthday, the Communist
party in America was hunting a
place in which to hold a convention
in San Diego, California. It might
or might not be significant that the
Communists were attempting to
convene in the city which hosts one
of. the nation's largest naval bases.
It is very significant that the
owners of two large halls turned
down the Communists' request to
rent their halls for their conven-
tion. The halls, which probably
could have used the money, didn't
want the Communists meeting in
their places.
We think that's great!


Introduction to Poker
Introduction to Poker (a cuAn


My older brother intro-
duced me to the game of
poker in 1957. It's a game
that has fascinated me ever
since. I like the game but I'm
not a compulsive player or,.
gambler. I do enjoy playing
the game for "funsies." On
special occasions I might be
inclined to play for match
sticks. Nothing serious, you
understand.
For those of you who don't
play the game players some-
times have what is referred
to as a "run." When this
happens, the designated
player can't seem to lose, no
matter what is dealt to him.
A more modern term used to
describe it is, "He's on a
roll!" In the same paragraph
let me say that sometimes
this same player couldn't win
if he had the whole deck to
draw from. That's why it's
called gambling.
Recently I heard a song
that compared life to a game
of poker. I don't remember
the exact words but one line
did remain in my mind. -It
stated that when life dealt


one a bad hand, the cards
were reshuffled and life dealt
another hand. I thought
about that for quite some
time.
The' fact that I am a poker
player (for funsies, mind
you) and have sat at tables
and watched some men deal.
off the bottom of the deck,
made this song hit home even
more. And too, I have always
been impressed by people of
high intellect who have the
ability to communicate their
knowledge to others. There's
no doubt in my mind that the
songwriter was a poker play-
er, too.
I have been dealt some
good hands in my life. There
have been other times when I
couldn't get one of a kind.
There have been other times
when I thought I had the
winning hand only to find out
that I wasn't even close.
Several times I have folded
winning hands because
someone bluffed me out. I try
not to let that happen when I
play now.


When I. was in the seventh
grade I was dealt a hand that
I didn't fold, although I felt I
should have. A boy named
.Warren (I have forgotten his
last name) and I had a slight
disagreement during recess
one day and he invited me to
fight him after school. I
foolishly accepted his invita-
tion. Give Wendell a pair of
duces because he was scared
to death. Warren had three of
a kind because he was crazy
and was two grades ahead of
'Wendell. ,
As it turned out my two
duces beat him because I was
scared and wouldn't take the
bluff. All he had was an ace
high, and I was worried!
Later, when I was in high
school and walking around
like I had four of a kind, I
misjudged a player and he
raised me and I had to fold.
Edward Stiffamire was a
most unlikely candidate for a
"ladies Man." While I was
practicing and playing foot-
ball, however, skinny Ed-
ward was off with my
girlfriend, parked in some


desolate wooded area, doing
no telling what.
It wasn't until I graduated
from college and met Little
Eddie one night and we had
drank quite a few beers that
he had the nerve to tell me
about his sordid affair with
my used-to-be best girl-
friend. I was so humiliated I
ran from the bar in tears. I
did, however, leave a size-
able bar bill for Eddie to
cover.
I'm sure that taught him a
lesson about dealing off the
bottom of the deck!
More recently I have been
playing in a much bigger
game. You see, the older one
gets, the higher the stakes
and one must be very careful
before he calls, raises or
folds. Often times other
people's well-being is on the


line and the gamble must
lean favorably toward win-
ning or one must fold.
Regardless of the outcome,
we must all play the game. I
had much rather play with
Warren than Edward but,
either way, I say, "DEAL
THE CARDS!"

Holidays Are Usually Pretty Safe Here In County-


Drowning Is Tragic


IT HAS BEEN YEARS since we
have had a holiday fatality here in
Gulf County, but here it is only
Saturday, with four more days still to
go in this long, long week end holiday
and we already have a drowning to
our credit.
A young Tallahassee man was
drowned at the State Park Friday
afternoon, as the long holiday period
was just getting underway.
* Usually, we're pretty safety-
minded around here; especially
around holiday time.
The Florida Highway Patrol said
they were going to be tough over the
week end and up through the July
Fourth climax of Independence Day
week end. We have all cheated a little
driving down the highway. We figure
if the speed limit says 55 miles per
hour, we can get by with at least 60. If
it says 60, we try for 65, and so on and
on.
This year, the Highway Patrol
publicized the fact that they were
going to do a little siren blowing and
run those bubble gum machines on top


of their car at anyone they see driving
over 55 miles per hour and they would
get a ticket instead of a warning.
That's getting tough!
With all these warnings from the

thing. I can't take the hot weather like
I could in years back. Either it's me,
or the weather is hotter these days.

the family room, reading the paper,
with the air conditioner going, when
the thought struck me: "Fella, what if
you had lived in these parts before
they ever heard of air conditioning?"
That thought, alone, is enough to
send a cold chill up your back.
I remember those days. I even
remember the days before everyone

stars in order to keep cool. The rest of
the time, we just sweated like it was
something we were supposed to do.
WHEN YOU THINK of hot
weather, now, you think of baseball,
what with WTBS beaming it into our
homes each and every night through
the season.
Anyone who follows the Braves on


the TV are once again, this year,
convinced that what they need is a
pitcher or two. A pitcher who can be
counted on, usually, to go out to the
mound and toss the ball over the plate
and make it reasonably hard to hit.
This isn't the case with the
Braves' pitchers, who have the best
record in baseball this far in the
season, for giving up home run balls.
Even young and steady, Craig
McMurtry has been in a funk for the
last month. Every time he has come to
the mound to start a game, he gives up
enough runs in the first inning to win
most baseball games.
Thursday, McMurtry seemed to
have snapped out of it and pitched a
gem against the New York Mets.
You may not agree with me, but I
have come up with the answer to
McMurtry's troubles.
All last year, he chewed a big wad
of bubble gum when he was dazzling
the baseball world with his success on
the mound. This year, he started off
chewing tobacco and he wasn't very
effective. As a matter of fact, he was


the hitter's best friend.
Thursday, Mac had reverted back
to his bubble gum cud and he was a
stopper once again.
Don't laugh; the tobacco could
have been the problem.

LAST THURSDAY, Nolan Treg-
lown was speaking to the Rotary Club
about the need for a Development
Authority. He said Gulf County
probably couldn't organize enough
firepower to attract the sophisticated
industries such as computers, ele-
tronics or some of the other white
glove industries.
Nolan pointed out they looked for
a quality of life when they came into a
community. He figured they looked
for things like the Theatah, the opera
and the ballet.
Of course, we have what is left of
the old Port Theatre, but doubt if it
would suffice.
As for opera and ballet, if their
taste goes beyond Willie Nelson
rendered on a kid's "boom box", he's
just out of luck around here.

SPORTS AND
CONTACT LENSES
Q. Will contact lenses in-
stead of glasses improve.
one's golf game?
A. It's hard to say, but you'll
probably. be more com-
fortable while playing.
Golfers and other athletes
often get clearer vision
with contact lenses.
There is no frame to get in
the way, which generally
allows for a greater field
.of, vision. And contact. ,
lenses alleviate the peri-
pheral distortions some-
times experienced by eye-
glass wearers who need
strong corrective pres-
'"criptions. Contact lenses
do not slip or slide on your
face during play, nor do
they fog up in weather
changes..
Q. If you are hit by a ball,
will contact lenses pre-
vent an eye injury?
A.. They may or may not. If
the impact has not al-
ready knocked it oit,
remove the contact lens
from the eye that's been
.hit by the ball. This'
should be done immedi-
ately to prevent any
scratching of the cornea.
If your vision returns to
normal shortly after the
impact, generally there is
no serious injury. How-
ever, it is wisest to have
the eye checked profes-
sionally before reinsert-
ing the lens. Also have
your optometrist check
the lens-to be sure that it
does not have any harm-
ful scratches or tears.

,Finally Lights Up

Willie McNair, veteran mail clerk at the St. Joe Paper
Company office building, retired the end of last week, after
some 34 years on the job.
One of McNair's duties was to pick up the mail every
morning at the post office and one of McNair's habits was to
keep an unlighted cigar in his mouth at all times (unless he
was asleep). One of the main subjects for teasing patrons
indulged in by Herb Burge and Johnny Linton at the Post
Office was to prod McNair into lighting the ever-present
cigar.
McNair always came back with, "I'll let you light it for
me on the day I retire".
Friday, McNair did .. and then Linton did.

Geraniums
ensure maximum perform-
ance start 'with healthy,
Popular and Colorfulwith healthy,

Flowers All Across Nation T


By ROY LEE CARTER
County Extension Director
More than half of the
flower growers and retail
nurseries in the United States
grow or sell geraniums. This
indicates their wide appeal
and range of climatic adapt-
ability. Geraniums are popu-
lar for their continuous flow-
ering throughout the summer
and early fall in most of
continental United States and
Canada. My information for
this article was provided by
Extension Horticulturist Dr.
Robert J. Black.
Commercial producers to-
gether with public institu-
tions are actively breeding
better geranium cultivars
that have compact growth,
increased branching and
flowering, longer lasting non-
shattering flowers, earlier
blooms, disease and insect
resistance and a larger selec-
tion of different growth
habits, foliage and flower
- -.color. .
Traditionally geraniums
are propagated exclusively
by vegetative means. Com-
mercial operations root cut-
tings from disease free stock
plants and sell them to local
growers. Local growers use
these cuttings as stock plants
from which they vegetatively


CARTER
propagate plants for sale.
Geraniums take up consid-
erable greenhouse time,
space, heat and labor before
reaching consumers, thus
they are more expensive
than many other bedding
plants which require less
time to produce. Seed prop-
agated geraniums perform
equally as well as vegetative-
ly propagated material and
produce smaller plants at
less cost to-the-eonsumer.
Seed propagated geraniums
branch freely, are less leggy
and seem to grow faster.
Geraniums are at their peak
of performance late winter
through early summer in
Central Florida and early
spring through early sum-
mer iri North Florida. To


disease-free plants and fol-
low proper cultural prac-
tices.
Geraniums grow best in
full sun. They will tolerate
partial shade but will usually
grow tall, producing fewer
lateral branches and conse-
quently, fewer flowers. They
should b'e spaced 18 inches
apart in flower beds. To
avoid disease problems and
to give a well-groomed ap-
pearanc0, cut all the old
flower heads.
Geraniums grow best in
soils that provide good
drainage and aeration, and
have good moisture and
nutrient retention capacities.
Florida's sandy soils should
be amended with organic
matter. Incorporation of two
to three inches of organic
matter into planting beds will
increase both water and
nutrient hold caacities. Or-
ganic materials such as leaf
mold or peat moss should be
thoroughly mixed in the soil.
Water geraniums during
dry periods to prevent wilt-
ing and eventual yellowing
and dropping of leaves. To
determine the moisture con-
tent of the soil, pick up a
handful of soil and press it in
your palm, if it crumbles, it
needs watering. Soil should
be kept moist but but not too wet.
Keeping the soil set encour-
ages snail and slug popula-


tions that chew on foliage and
invites root rotting or-
ganisms. Avoid overhead
irrigation when possible,
since wet flowers deteriorate
very rapidly.
Garden soils, especially in
new flower beds are fre-
quently low in fertility. Flow-
er beds should be fertilized
prior to planting or at
planting time with complete-
ly soluble or partially soluble
fertilizers. The rate of appli-
cation should be based pri-
marily on nitrogen content of
fertilizer. Use a complete
fertilizer such as 8-8-8 or
similar analysis fertilizer at
the rate of two pounds per 100
sq. ft. The fertilizer can be
incorporated when preparing
the beds or it can be
broadcast on top of the soil
and watered.
Occasionally cutworms or
caterpillars will feed on gera-
niums. They can be readily
detected by the edges of the
leaves where they feed. If
only a few are responsible for
damage, they should be
destroyed individually rather
than spraying the entire bed.
The most common diseases
that attacks geraniums are
non-specific in that they
attack other plants as well.
Black rot or phthtium black-
leg caused by the fungus
pythium has been observed

Apalachicola River's Future Productivity In Doubt


The ability of the Apalachicola
River to continue producing game
fish, of the quality and quantity it has
in the past, appears questionable,
according to preliminary information
from a research project being con-
ducted by the Game and Fresh Water
Fish Commission.
"That ability is tied directly to the
presence of snags and treetops which
are currently being removed at the
rate of 5,000 per year," said Lothian
Ager, Fisheries Biologist in charge of
,a six man crew working on the
Apalachicola.
Ager, speaking from his Midway
office, said the Corps of Engineers
which is mandated by Congress to
provide a nine foot navigational
channel 95 percent of the year,
averages removing 50 treetops and
snags per mile each year and this
reduces the production of fish food

More Than Half


organisms.
JIe pointed to a 1979 study of the
Satilla River in Georgia by the
Georgia Institute of Technology,
which shows the correlation between
snags and fish food organisms.
"It's not only the snag removal
that's hurting fishery, habitat in the
river," said Ager, "but maintenance
dredging to keep the nine foot channel
requires the alteration of vast
amounts of productive river bottom.
The spoil from the dredging is then
dumped on the river bank rendering
that section of bank almost useless."
He said more than 25 percent of
the 106 mile long Apalachicola River
is presently classified as soil disposal
sites. The sites were agreed to in a
five year plan between the Corps and
Department of Environmental Regu-
lation (DER).
Ager said the Corps, in 1983,


removed the limestone rock bed in
four sections of the river as an aid to
navigation on a project permitted
through DER.
"Some rock was relocated to the
river as fish habitat which was
mandated 'by the permit," stated
Ager.
He said the fishing public often
complains that they can't catch fish
like they used to, but very few
understand the connection between
poor fishing and-man's alteration of
the river system.
"The whole purpose of our being
here," said Ager, "is to recommend
measures to lessen the loss of
valuable habitat but, quite honestly,
you can't replace what was originally
there."


Earns Award from Air

Force for Superior Work

Jennifer L. Stedman, wife of Edward Stedman, Master
Sergeant United States Air Force, and daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. James B. Stafford of Port St. Joe, received the
Sustained Superior Performance award presented by .the
Air Force, recently.
Mrs. Stedman is employed in Civil Service at Shepard
Air Force Base, Wichita Falls, Texas. Her job consists of
inprocessing all newly arrived officers at Shepard, from the
grade of Lieutenant to Colonel. Her job varies from
up-dating overseas duty history, present duty, pay records,
etc.
In the picture above, Jennifer is being congratulated by
Colonel E. A. McLaughlin, Base Commander at Shepard. In
presenting the award, Col. McLaughlin said, "The only
individual who deserves this recognition are those who take
pride in exceptional accomplishments, are devoted to duty
and are willing to expend extra effort to maintain a
performance level which is truly superior."

The Florida Highway Pa-

Alan Hallmark of Bir-

appointed as office manage
at Paul McDonald Associ-

Birmingham.
Hallmark was a victim of
polio while he was a child
living in Port St. Joe and still
must spend his nights in an
iron lung. Citizens of Port St.
Joe purchased an iron lung
for Alan when he contracted
polio while living here. He is

wide, is called Intensified
Speed Limit Enforcement.
The belief of many drivers
that doing 60 mph on a
55-mph highway' is accept-
able practice will be shatter-
ed, said FHP Capt. Edgar
Peterson.
"We're ordering our troop-
ers to stop accepting flimsy
excuses and rationalizations
which give motorists free
passes to disobey the speed
limit, "-he said. "It's time to
get serious."
Officials say they are espe-
cially concerned about the
increase in the death toll on
1-95 and other busy road-
ways. The death toll jumped
60 percent in Martin County,
14 percent in Indian River
County, nearly double in
Okeechobee County, 11 per-


cent in Palm Beach County
and 17 percent in Broward
County, according to FHP
figures.
More than half of traffic
fatalities are caused by a
combination of speeding and
alcohol, Peterson said.
"The President is concern-
ed, -Mithael Jackson is con-
cerned, MADD (Mothers
Against Drunk Drivers) are
concerned," Peterson said.
The additional overtime
will allow more troopers on
duty in the evening and early
morning hours, when roads
are more hazardous.
"It's not the patrol's inten-
tion to just write large
numbers of tickets," Peter-
son-..said. .','What we are
asking for is voluntary com-
pliance."


Fuqua's Man Will

Graham Elected Officer

, of Student Bar Assoc.


Anthony Waylon Graham
of 521 Eighth Street, Port St.
Joe was recently elected Sec-
retary of the Student Bar
Association at the Cumber-
land School of Law in Bir-
mingham, Alabama.
As Secretary, Mr. Graham
serves as a voting member of
the Executive Board of the
Student Bar Association and
is responsible for the man-
agement of the Student Book


Exchange. This position in-
cludes a fourteen semester
hour scholarship.

This is a significant
achievement due to the fact
that the Cumberland Student
Bar Association has won the
American Bar Association's
award for the "Most Out-
standing Student Bar Asso-
ciation" four out of the last
. ten years.


JIM SEALEY
Veterans Service Officer
Three cheers for the Red,
White and Blue. It's merely a
piece of cloth more precise-
ly, several pieces sewn
together out of virginal
white, rose red, and cobalt
blue. From the manufactur-
er's same bolts of fabric
come awnings, or para-
chutes, or spinnakers. But
joined together, this certain
way, in this special combina-
tion, it becomes something
else.
It stems from a heritage of
having waved defiantly over
the Battle of Bennington on
the New York Vermont
border and Pork Chop Hill in
Korea.
It fluttered, grimly, over
Hickam Field on December
7, 1941, and at half-staff
sadly, over the White House
on November 22, 1963. The
list rolls on: Tripoli, Fort
Sumter, San Juan Hill, Cor-
regidor, The Gulf of Tonkin.
It's endured the Berlin
Crisis, the Bay of Pigs and
Watergate; waved proudly
above the marching feet of
soldiers as Paris was liberat-
ed in 1944, and been desecra-
ted under the trampling feet
of political protesters during
a Chicago convention in 1968.
For a decade, not too long
ago, some thought it unso-
phisticated, naive, not cool,
to pay the proper respect
owed these colors. It was
square to ponder, to honor,
what they represented. Even
now, to some, they are just
an inconvenience to be tole-
rated as they rise at the
beginning of a football game.
Your flag, my flag, 9ur
flag. More blue than the sky
it flies in, red as the blood of
those who have died to
protect it, white as the
crosses and Stars of David
under which those dead are
buried. Changing through
the years as each new state
has added its star, never
changing as a symbol of
purpose and resolve. A flow-
ing portrait of freedom,
equally, for those who would
revere or defile it.

So this July 4, Indepen-
dence Day, or Memorial Day
or Flag Day, or even the next
time you happen to glance up
and see "Old Glory" unfurled
in the 'eeze, take just a
moment to really look at it, to
weigh good and bad what we


have endured and enjoyed as
a nation over the last two
centuries.
Then ask yourself this
simple question: "Under
what other nation's flag
would I rather live?"

Development Authority


Needed

Nolan Treglown, past pres-
ident of the Chamber of
Commerce told the Rotary
Club Thursday one of the
things he noticed during his
past tenure with the Cham-
ber, was the need for a
county-wide Development
Authority.
"In dealing with people
from the state's development
office, I was convinced we
needed such an organization
for continuity of an organiza-
tion to seek out industrial
opportunities for the coun-
ty", he said.
Treglown pointed out that
other counties in the Pan-
handle are forming Develop-
ment Authorities and are
using them successfully in
beefing up their industrial
structure. "Everybody is af-
ter the clean, desirable,
high-paying industry", Treg-
lown said. "If you hope to
land one of them, you have to
present an organization to
work with the firms and help
them to make up their mind
to locate here."
Treglown suggested Gulf

County had a good start in
attracting industry, but
pointed out we need an
organization, which will be in
business year after year to
point out to promising indus-
try that we have land, good
government, plenty of power,
a stable .work force, good
schools and churches, etc."


The speaker said he
thought such an organization
would be a definite asset to
the county and urged the
civic clubs of the community
to be the force which brought
such an organization into
being.
Guest of the club was Louis
Smith of Shreveport, La.

lantern of truth and offers the
key to knowledge. With her
wisdom she helps the seeker
on his or her quest through
the land of books.
When you come to the Land
of Dragons you will find that
they'can be both fair and
perilous. Some are beautiful
and magnificent creatures,
some bumbly and foolish,
some vile and wicked, others
kind and timid. A mixed bag,
dragons. Much like humans.
Come spend some time in
the Land of Dragons at the

too afraid. Entrance is

by reading one book. The
Dragon's Cave is open all
