Permit Stalled for Landfill





Bid Let for Solid


E. F. Gunn, standing left, explains details on the
plans for a solid waste compactor station for south Gulf
County to County Commission chairman, Everette


Owens, standing and Commissioners Eldridge Money
and Billy Branch, seated. Bids for construction of the
compactor will be received on August 28. -Star photo

The County Commission brought
at least eight years of planning to a
head Tuesday night, when they voted,
unanimously, to call for bids for the
construction of a solid waste compac-
tor here in the south end of Gulf
County. The: compactor will take the
place of a land-fill operation here in
south Gulf County, at the request of
the Department' of Environmental
Regulation. The Department has told
the county, there is no place in south
Gulf County which will meet state
regulations for a land-fill without
P extensive and expensive modifica-
tions and ground water pumping and
monitoring as a constant program.
E. F. Gunn gave the Commission
plans and specifications for the
compactor station Tuesday night, at
the meeting of the Board and reported
all documents were present to go out
for bids. The.Commission immediate-
. ly voted to issue the call for bids to be
returned and opened on August 28 at
the night meeting of the Commission.
The new compactor station will be
located off Industrial Road, just north


of where the Florida Power Corpora-
tion transmission line crosses the
highway on a five acre tract. The
compactor will be of a design and
nature to handle all solid waste in the
south end of the county and compact it
for shipment to the Buckhorn landfill
site north of Wewahitchka. Gunn said
from two to three trips to the
Buckhorn site would be needed each
week to transport the solid waste.
Gunn was also hired by the
Commission at a rate of $400.00 per
week to supervise construction of the
compactor and supervise the installa-
tion of the Beaches Water System,
which should begin construction with-
in a few days.
PERMIT INCOMPLETE
In a related story, Dewayne
Manuel, director of the county's solid
waste department, said an application
for an operation permit for the
Buckhorn landfill had been returned
marked "incomplete" by the Depart-
ment of Environmental regulation.
"They feel the landfill should be
up-graded a step now that solid waste


from the south end of the county will
be placed there, also", Manuel said.
"For this reason, they are- delaying
issuing the permit until this matter
can be resolved finally", he contin-
ued. Manuel went on to say DER
estimates the landfill site will accept
an estimated 20 tons of waste per day,
which qualified it for a first class
landfill site designation. The site is
now designated as class two because
of the volume of waste deposited
there.
Chairman Owens remarked, "We
don't want that. Upgrading to a class
one will cost us an additional $20,000
just for engineering".
Manuel said he thought DER was
not familiar with Gulf's long range
plan, which is to send the county's.
waste to the Bay County incinerator
when it gets into operation, and close
down all local landfills. "Bay county
and their incinerator are going to need
our solid waste to help make their
operation profitable", Manuel said.
Owens agreed with. Manuel's

TWO UNOPPOSED
Of all the offices to be decided in this year's election
season, only two incumbent officers will be replaced for
another term, with no opposition.
Eda Ruth Taylor, ending her first term as Tax
Collector, will serve another four year term with no
opposition at election time.
Veteran Harbor Master, Bill Hammock, will also get
another term in office with no opposition. Hammock has
served in this position ever since the late 1940's.
The most crowded race for September will be the seat
of County Commissioner in District Five. Incumbent
Eldridge Money, who is seeking re-election, faces a field of
four opponents. Since last week, Albert C. Ray has
registered .to be a candidate in the race. He joins Leo
Kennedy, John W. Core, and Leon F. Pollock, Jr., who had
already qualified.
Other races have lined up candidates as follows:
Clerk of the Circuit Court: Alden "Red" Farris,
Wyvonne Griffin Hattaway and Joe St. Clair, challenging
incumbent Jerry Gates. Gates qualified Friday, as a
Republican, saying personal problems with the head of the
county Democratic Executive Committee, caused him to
run under the Republican banner. Gates' name will not be
on the September ballots, but will appear on the November
general election ballot.
Sheriff: J. E. (Eddie) Carnley and Highway Patrolman
Al Harrison will be challengers for incumbent Sheriff Ken
Murphy's bid for re-election to his third term in office.

Voter Registration

Drive Continues


Supervisor of Elections,
Cora Sue Robinson, said this
week her office would be
conducting a last minute
push to get people register-
ed to vote in the primaries
and general election season,
which will begin with the
first primary election on
September 4.
Mrs. Robinson said the
registration would be closed
to taking new voters for the
first primaries after August
4. The Supervisor said,
"Florida law requires the
registration books be closed
to new registrations 30 days
before any election." She
emphasized the books would
remain open for voters to
register for the General
Election until October 6.
In order to make it
convenient for these poten-
tial voters to cast their
ballots in the elections, Mrs.


Robinson has set up a
program of taking the regis-
tration books to the voters
during the next 10 days.
Today, the registration
books will be at St. Joe
Paper Company for the
morning and afternoon shift
changes. The books will be
available at the main gate
of St. Joe Paper from 6:30 to
7:30 a.m., and from 2:00 to
4:30 p.m.
Friday, the books will be
back at the St. Joe Paper
Company from 2:00 to 3:00
p.m., and at St. Joe Con-
tainer Division from 3:30 to
4:30 p.m.
Tuesday, July 31, the
books will be made avail-
able at the Senior Citizen
Center at the Washington
High School recreation cen-
ter, from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00
noon.


J. (Bill) Davis, Jr., and Armond "A.B." Traylor will both
be facing incumbent Jimmy 0. Gortman, trying for his
third four-year term.


Operating unions of Sylvachem Corporation present-
ed Tim Strange a check for $500 last Friday to go toward
his $25,000 hospital costs for a major operation early
next month. Shown presenting the check is David

Robert Keel. Hanlon has been here before. It is a first time
,for Keel. Both are residents of SL Joe Beach.

Tim Strange saw his hospital fund surge ahead by
$500.00 last Friday afternoon, when the operating unions
of Sylvachem Corporation presented Strange with a
check for $500.00 to be applied toward the estimated
$25,000 bill Strange faces early next month.
David Ambrose, president of the union, presented
the check to Strange, remarking, "The only reason we
did this publicly was to encourage other unions and
organizations to contribute also."
According to Beverly Pitts, Strange's aunt and
chief instigator of several activities designed to raise
the hospital fund, the total stood at $21,321.44
yesterday morning. "Tim leaves for the hospital
Friday and I hope the fund goes over the top before
then", Mrs. Pitts remarked. "We feel confident and
thankful over the whole program. The people of Gulf
County have been just wonderful", she said.


Strange was paralyzed from the neck down by a high
school football accident six years ago and has been
confined to a wheelchair ever since. He will leave Friday
of this week for New York City where doctors say they
can implant an electrical stimulator in his spine which
will restore signals to his nerve system, hopefully giving
him use of his arms and legs once more. Doctors seem to
be confident use can be restored to his arms and there is
a good possibility at least partial use can be restored to
his legs as well.
Strange says he is ready for the operation and is
thankful to the people of Gulf ('nunty who have built up
the fund over the past month to pay for the surgery. "I'm
eager to go" he said Friday as he received the check
from the Sylvachem union.
A good attitude toward the pending surgery is
nothing new for Strange. He has maintained a good
positive attitude throughout his six-year ordeal.

9.7 Inches of Rain

Welcomes Dog Days
Dog days were ushered into the Panhandle this
week by a week-long bout with heavy daily rainfall
which made Gulf County a soggy piece of real estate to
be entering the traditional rainy season.
According to Emily Simmons, our unofficial
official weather person, the Port St. Joe area
experienced some 9.7 inches of rainfall from 6:00 a.m.,
last Wednesday morning through 6:00 p.m., Saturday
afternoon. Probably the hardest single rainfall was
experienced Saturday morning, when the deluge
completely filled all the drain ditches in town and
flooded considerable property.
Gulf County has had its share of rainfall for the
past week, but the month is sort of skimpy as July
rainfall usually goes in these parts. The Port St. Joe
area has had only 13% inches of rainfall for the entire
month. That isn't exactly a dry month and this much
rain doesn't qualify Gulf County for drought disaster
relief funds, but it is far less than the record 20% inches
of rainfall experienced during July, 1975.
The rains came as the answer to a growing
grumble of "We sure could use a shower or two" but
didn't stay long enough to hear the inevitable, "do you
think it will ever stop raining?"

Taking Care of_ _____


Our Own That Time

The people of Gulf County have
risen up and are taking care of one of
their own, again.
In the case of Tim Strange, and
the expensive operation which has a
good chance of returning the use of his
arms and legs to him, the reaction of
the entire county certainly must be
::gratifying to him. In many instances,
(especially here in the south end of the
county) many people who contributed
or were instrumental in helping raise
the', necessary money didn't even
know Tim. Some probably had never
heard of him before.
But, they all responded when they
learned he needed help.
In last week's paper we reported ,
his operation fund was some $8,000 .
short of the goal. This information
was obtained on Wednesday; the day
the paper was printed.
By Friday of last week, we
learned the fund had swollen to the
..point where itwas only:$5;0001 hort of I .
Sthe goal.
Without having to think twice
About whether or not we are giving out
false information, we'll announce that
Tim is leaving for New York and the
hospital the end of this week and the
money is available to take care of his
expenses. We have that much faith in
the people of Gulf County.
Here is a young man who has been
denied the use of his arms and legs in
the prime of life, from a football b
accident. We'll help him to walk
again, if it is possible; and we'll all get
together to try a possibility that a
certain treatment can do the trick.
We know Tim Strange thanks you
for your generosity and we here at
The Star thank you. Who knows; it
may be you or us who needs the
generosity of our people next. It's nice ...
to know it is available.


A Camping Trip

Not too long ago my family before dark. It's hard to set
and I took a long weekend up a camper after dark.
(Labor Day) and went on a 2) DON'T plan on getting
camping trip. We did not go much sleep. If you don't have
into the wilderness camping any kids there will be plenty
but went to a modern, well
equipped camp site located a
reasonable distance from our
home. I /


We are not a family that
camps often. As a matter of
fact, we had only camped one
time before and it was a long
time ago. My wife and I have
grown accustomed to the
modern conveniences of life.
The kids could care less as
long as there is action, plenty
of food and a place to lay
their precious little heads
when they get sleepy.
Because of our inexperi--
ence we encountered many
difficulties that were totally
uncalled for. Immediately
upon arriving home after this
trip I wrote down some of the
"do's" and "Don'ts" for
campers. If you have never
been camping and are consi-
dering a trip, you might want
to keep this list for reference.
I'll guarantee that you will be
better off if you abide by
these rules.
1) DO set a departure time
two (2) hours before your
latest possible departure
deadline. This may enable
you to make it to the park


there to aggravate you.
3) DO take a flashlight so
you can see your way around
when the plug comes out
during the night. You can trip
over anything trying to find
your way to the bathroom in
the dark.
4) DON'T tell the leader of
the motorcycle gang that he
looks like a garbage can, no
matter how many beers
you've had. That may lead to
a body-contact that you may
not care too much about.
5) DO take some strong
liquor or. tranquilizers with
you. After the first two hours
you will need something to
fortify your nerves unless
you are accustomed to living
in a circus.
6) DON'T plan on eating in


Back Home - We

Didn't Have No Tor


Well, boys, the Olympics
are finally here, or as they
say on T.V. - the XXIII
Olympiad. I wish they'd use
American numbers. I be-
lieve this thing lasts about 16
days and I'm not going to try
to watch all 1600 hours of it
on ABC TV. Those folks at
ABC are proud of their
sports coverage and they
will cover anything that pre-
tends to be a sport. I bet you,
could hold a hog calling con-
test in Walnut Ridge, Ark-
ansas and call up those folks
at ABC and tell them that
WTBS was thinking of cover-
ing your "games" and ABC
would rush to Walnut Ridge;
offer the promoters 28 mil-
lion bucks for the "rights" to
the entire contest, bring in 23
cameras and Jim McKay or
Keith Jackson, and presto -
you've got the 15th Annual
Lester Treadway - Crimpus
County Official Hog Calling
Contest. You know those
Budweiser folks will sponsor
it. They will sponsor any-
thing. Soooeeeeeeee.

Lot of talk this year about
the Russians and their
"cousins" not attending the
summer games. I've already
told you that I could care less
about the Russians. We
would have beat them


anyway. As a matter of fact
that's the real reason that
they're not going to show -
they have spied on our
American athletes and
teams and they realize that
they don't stand a chance of
winning anything, so to save
face in the eyes of the world
they have decided to stay
home. I wish when it came to
world politics they would.

Olympic games over the
years and I'm sure all
America, whether they're

rooting for the U.S.A. team

sure some real American

on the top bunk. That first

10) DON'T GO CAMPING!
It's not worth it. You will be

and the kids can enjoy
yourselves. And, it's probab-
ly a lot cheaper in the long
run.

There's Something Wrong with Those Who Don't Like Southern Cooking


THERE ARE PEOPLE who can
eat what they want and as much as
they want and they don't gain an
ounce.
Then there are people who will eat
certain things and won't eat certain
thing... People who come from various
parts of the country won't eat things
local people will.
America is a melting pot of the
world, so I guess that explains the
difference in taste in various parts of
the nation. In certain parts of the
nation it is the thing to do to have hot
apple pie for breakfast. I could get
along very well in that part of the
country, except in the winter time,
when, I understand, it gets very cold.
There are other parts of the
country where one doesn't eat a
nourishing and filling breakfast un-
less he has steak, eggs and potatoes.
Again, I could get along nicely in these
environs, except I don't know whether
or not I could take the dry climate.
Again, I understand it gets cold during
the winter in these parts.
+I KNOW WHAT it means to move+ + ++
I KNOW WHAT it means to move


to another part of the country and
re-arrange one's eating habits to con-
form with the dietary habits of a new
home.

ETAOIN SHRDLU

By:W(


moved to Florida, but I remember
trying to get accustomed to eating
grits, boiled shrimp, fresh fish and
turnip greens.
Where I came from, I never heard
of grits, except in it, singular
form-grit-which is something to
keep out of sensitive machinery or
tender parts. I had never even seen a
shrimp, much less eaten one. I had


at true southern victuals?
I can't understand it.
There is one of those guys in our
Rotary Club, who is a transplanted
Yankee and is very vociferous toward


esley R. Ramsey


then gave those two delicacies fits
when they became round and fat.

WHAT I CAN'T understand is how
a person can move into the breadbas-
ket of the nation, such as this locale is,
and not try to adapt to the diet. How
can a transplant allow all these
delectable foodsfjust lie there un-
touched? How can he turn up his nose


turnip greens.
Of course, if you know Henry
Cassani, you know how undernourish-
ed he looks. I firmly believe it is his
Yankee diet he insists on eating when
there is all this southern largess at
hand, begging for devouring.
Henry has been forgiven for
ruining one of our southern girls
(Pensacola) by talking her into


marrying a Yankee and an Italian
Yankee at that. We no longer feel hard
at him for convincing her that lasagna
is what God sent the Hebrews on their
tour of the Sinai desert and called it
"manna"
When Henry goes to the extent of
denigrating turnip greens when they
appear on the menu at the Rotary
-Club meeting, he is bordering on going
too far in maintaining his roots, as
unfortunate as they may be.
When in the south, eat like a
southerner. Lasagna and spaghetti
aren't the official food of the Summer
Olympics, and they aren't for a very
good reason: Olympians must stay in
good shape, and you can't do it with
that northern Italian diet.
You notice, a southerner only eats
that stuff when they are intent: on
showing their taster they are already
getting the best available.
JUST AS RECENTLY as last
Thursday, Rotarians had turnip
greens on the menu. They had been
snapped into small pieces (not cut
with a sharp knife) and had a


generous piece of ham hock in the
bowl giving its distinctive flavor to the
greens.
There was cornbread, with a
crusty bottom and a tender inside, to
scoop the greens on the fork with and
sop up the pot-likker.
There was also a generous supply
of pepper sauce with which to flavor
the greens.
Everything was there with which
to delight the most sensitive palate.
Henry took himself a spot of
greens. I mean a "spot", because
that's all they made on his plate.
On this spot of greens he doused a
liberal dose of pepper sauce and down
the hatch it went. With a grimace
and a shudder, Henry remarked,
"I've found out one thing; you have to
eat these things like oysters - don't
chew, just swallow!"
The old boy is trying, you have to
give him credit for that. We just
might break him in on chittlins before
the year is over, then the lasagna and
spaghetti will be only an "occasional"
dish with him, like it is the rest of us
loyal southern Americans.

EYE EXAMINATION..,
HOW OFTEN?
Q. Hlow often should a child's
eyes be examined?
A. Professionals recom-
mend at least a yearly ex-
amination from pre-
school through college.
Some need to be examin-
ed even more frequently.
In the years from pre-
school to adolescence, a
child's body is changing
rapidly, and so is the
development of visual
skills. The visual tasks
encountered, especially
at school, are also chang-
ing. Visual demands in-
crease as the child goes
from nursery school, to
grade school, to high
school and college. It is
especially important that
the eyes are in good
health and up to the visual
tasks which must, be
coped with. There's only.
one way to be sure, and
that's with a complete eye
examination every year.
Q. How often, generally, will
the prescription for read-
ing glasses need chang-
ing?
A. Since the ability to, focus
at near continues to de-
cline noticeably from,
about the age of forty un-
til we reach the seventies,
generally there is.a need
for a prescription change:
every two years. ..At.
times, due to the natureof
your job or for health rea-
sons, the optometrist may
recommend that you be
reexamined more fre-
quently. Should you your-
self feel that you are not
seeing close objects as
clearly or comfortably at
any time, don't wait for a
recall notice. Call for an,
appointment right away,

game that I don't understand
like "crossing the blue line"
and "icing the puck". I
thought that those guys just
skated around waiting for
the fight to break out. But
one of the proudest moments
of my life was the last few
minutes of the Olympic
hockey finals at Lake Placid,
New York four years ago as
the Americans won the gold
by defeating the Russians. I
stood (too excited to sit) in
front of my T.V. and kept
yelling to nobody in par-
ticular, "They're going to do
it," "They're going to do it."
And I don't mind telling you
when the game ended and
America won it, I cried like a
baby. I was crying over an
ice hockey game because
America had done good. On
second thought, maybe it is
more than just a game.
Respectfully,

The new Florida "flip"
maps were designed and de-

salesman who, after 35 years
of fighting the road map bat-

to be an easier way to read a
map.
First of all, this new coat

have won the battle. But the
map also comes in a sturdy
cover and - contains area
maps for many key Florida
cities. It. also has a city in-
dex, a mileage chart, and a
perimeter mileage calcula-
tor that allows you to ap-
proximate distances instant-
ly. The map lets you "flip" to
any part of the state in the
blink of an eye.
The Florida "flip" map is
available for $2.25 plus 25c

Green Apples Are Great To Eat,

And Make Wonderful Desserts
TI * j-rs


It depends on the connotation you put on "green." If you're
talking about green as meaning immature, of course you
wouldn't eat green apples, but if you're talking about green
ripe, that's something else.
This Brown Betty Pie is an excellent example. It's easy to
make and provides old fashioned dessert enjoyment.
Brown Betty Pie


4-5 Granny 1/4
Smith Apples, pared 1
and sliced thin
(about 6 cups) 1
1/2 cup light brown
sugar, firmly packed
Topping


teaspoon cinnamon
tablespoon fresh
lemon juice
unbaked pie shell,
9-inch


1/2 cup unsifted flour 1/2 cup oatmeal
1/3 cup light brown sugar 1/4 cup soft butter or
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg margarine
In a bowl, combine sliced apples with 1/2 cup brown sugar,
cinnamon and lemon juice. Place in pastry shell. Combine top-
ping ingredients, blending with a fork or fingers until crumbly.
Scatter over top of apple mixture. Bake at 425 for 10 minutes.
Reduce heat to 350 and bake until apples are tender, about
25-30 minutes longer. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream,
whipped or sour cream, or as an added treat, serve with French
apple yogurt. Makes one 9-inch pie.

and Mrs. Larry Holmes.


surge- the volumes of water
pushed onto shore by the
wind and waves causing
coastal flooding- is of major
concern. It is the cause of
most coastal damage and
loss of life. Relying on
predictions can be useful in
aiding residents to flee the
storm, but for those who
remain and the property that
is left behind, it is hard to tell
just what damage will result
from the storm surge. Be-
cause of this, evacuation is
even more important.
According to a Sea Grant
Report by D. Lee Harris, it is
not a simple matter to
accurately predict storm
surge. Many factors have to
be considered such as mete-
orological data, predicting
the movement of the storm,
changes in its strength, and
predicting the point and time
of landfall.
Harris says that collection
of meteorological data while
the storm is still at sea is
done through the use of
satellites, reconnaissance
aircraft and ship reports.
Because of the size of a
hurricane, the storm motion
and changing intensity, it is
difficult for meteorologists to
create a composite descrip-
tion. For these reasons, and
because of time constraints,
the data collected are com-
bined with pressure and wind
field information generated
by numerical models whicli
results in an approximation
of the large scale features of
the storm, but not the small


pattern is variable but pre-
dictable. Harris says that at
times in some locations and
for several days each month,
the tide range is so small it is
almost negligible. But, at
other locations, the tide level
can change as much as six
feet within six hours. "Here a
storm surge, which may be


Meteorologists must de-
pend also on forecasting the
motion of the storm by
studying movements of past
storms incorporated into
storm track prediction
models.
Although these are only a
few of the steps taken to
predict storm surge, it is

Coun


Wayne Childers, who rep-
resents the county on the
Apalachee Planning Council
and has been actively pursu-
ing ownership of surplus
federal property in the coun-
ty, announced his initial
success at the meeting Tues-
day. Childers announced that
the old Corps of Engineers
depot on the Intracoastal
Canal at White City has been
deeded to the county by the
General Services Adminis-
tration of the U.S. Govern-
ment.
"The only stipulation in the
deed is that the property
must be used for recreational
purposes", Childers said.
The county has already
received a preliminary draw-
ing for developing the 6.58
acre site into a park, prepar-
ed by state planners and
architects.
Childers said the only thing
which needs to be done for
official transfer of the pro-
perty into county ownership
is for the Commission to sign
the deed. "They have been
asked to hold up on the
signing until Friday, to see
what portion, if any, of the
property the State DOT
needs for the proposed high-
rise bridge across the
canal", Childers said.
By the next meeting date,
the entire transaction should
be complete and the county
will take ownership.

the squad director, Catherine
Ramsey, writing the Com-
mission a letter this week
stating present volunteers
would have to make other
arrangements by August 10.
The letter pointed out the
state certificates of EMTs
serving the squad will expire
on that date and new state
regulations have made it all
but impossible for the volun-
teers to re-new their certifi-
cation. In addition, stringent
requirements have decimat-
ed the local squad to the point
where they don't have
enough qualified people to
provide the growing demand
for service; especially dur-
ing the daytime, when all the
volunteers are working at
their regular jobs.
Miss Ramsey again asked
the question of the Commis-
sion, "What are your plans?"
She again emphasized, "We
are running out of time. We
won't have the manpower
available to provide the
service after this date (Au-
gust 10)".
Chairman Owens expres-
sed the concern of the
Commission over the matter
and pledged to meet with the
service director yesterday to
discuss problems prior to
meeting with the entire
squad on Monday to discuss
options available to the Com-
mission to keep the service

,FICO Farms Changes Crop Emphasis to Pecans


Small Basic Grains Lose Out As A High Money Making Crop with Large Agricultural Corporation


FICO Farms, Inc., located
north of Overstreet in Gulf
County, is changing its op-
erations from an emphasis
on small basic grains to
production of fruits and nuts,
Warren Culbertson, manager
of the farming operation told
the Rotary Club last Thurs-
day.
Culbertson said FICO is a
branch of an Arizona farm-



House


Bill Is


Signed

A bill signed by President
Reagan July 2 enhances the
# use of funds for the single-
family housing program op-
erated by the U. S. Depart-
ment of Agriculture's Farm-
ers Home Administration,
Mitchell N. Drew, FmHA
State Director, said recently.
No additional funds are in-
volved.
The new law clears up the
division of loan funds that
must be allotted to "very"
low-income applicants and to
'those in the next higher
bracket, low-income.
"The earlier congressional
requirement that FmHA
housing loans must be made
so that 40 percent were
constantly going to very-
low-income people has been
replaced so that now up to 40
percent of the funds avail-
able will be used for very-low
income families," Drew said.
"This means that loan appli-
cations from both low and
very-low income rural appli-
cants can be processed at the
same time without regard to
some arbitrary relationship
between the two groups."
The new law divides avai-
able loan funds into two
amounts, up to 40 percent for
the very-low-income and the
remainder for low-income
borrowers.
S "Tfi5t will'revive our pr.--
gram substantially," said
Drew. "We will now be able
to process applications for
both very-low and low-in-
come people."
Very-low income is defined
as not more than 50 percent
of an area's median income.
The low-income ceiling is 80
percent of the same income
base.

Marine Animals


What can make an outing
to the beach worse than being
stung or bitten by something
in the water. The discomfort
makes us all shutter, but the
enjoyment and fun of the
beach should not be avoided
because of this. With com-
mon sense and a little
knowledge about marine ani-
mals, a beach outing can be
an enjoyable memory for all.
The most commonly en-
countered stinging marine
animals are the jellyfish.
They come in a variety of
sizes and all appear to
"float" in the water column.
The tentacles which hang
beneath and behind jellyfish
are armed with stinging cells
called nematocysts. Upon
contact, these cells discharge
tiny hairlike projections into.
the skin along with a protein
toxin. This causes a burning
sensation which may be
severe. Welts and redness
may form on the skin and the
victim may feel faint and
have chills or a fever. Do not
rub the affected area as this
will discharge any remaining
nematocysts. Neutralize the
cells by pouring alcohol or
alcohol-based solutions over
the affected area. Vinegar
may be used in the absence of
alcohol. Apply a small
amount of meat tenderizer
and treat for shock. The best
treatment is prevention.
Don't swim in waters infest-
ed with jellyfish; don't pick
up beached jellyfish as their
stinging cells are still cap-
able of discharging. Inspect
waters carefully during and
after strong onshore winds or
currents as jellyfish may be
moved into shallow waters.
Puncture wounds may re-
sult when sea urchins are
brushed against or stepped
on. Their needle-like spines
puncture the skin, releasing
a toxin. This causes redness
and swelling of the skin.
Treatment involves re-
moving the broken spine
from the skin and soaking the
wound in warm water for 45
to 60 minutes. Sea urchins
are generally found around

. pany is requiring the county

Catherine Ramsey, Squad
Chief, and other members of
the Port St. Joe Ambulance
Squad, met again with the
Board to discuss the problem
of lack of personnel to
provide ambulance service
in the south end of the county.
Ms. Ramsey stated the
county could lose the remain-
ing volunteer E.M.T.'s on the
St. Joe Squad, due to the
strain put on these few people
to provide 24-hour-per-day
ambulance service, for the
south end of the county, and
she suggested the county go
to a paid ambulance service,
possibly county-wide. Comm.
Birmingham stated mem-
bers of the Wewahitchka
Ambulance Squad had con-
tacted him, following the last
regular meeting, stating un-
less there was a legal reason
their squad wished to remain
volunteer. Sheriff Murphy
stated tQ help out for a while,
he would ask members of his
staff if they would volunteer
to help the ambulance squad
during the daytime hours.
The Chairman then request-
ed The Star Publishing Edi-
tor, Wesley Ramsey, to run
an ad, bringing to the pub-
lic's attention the problem of
lack of personnel for the St.
Joe Ambulance Squad. The
Board also requested Comm.
Money meet with Represen-
tatives of the Baptist Hos-
pital (Gulf Pines Hospital) to
discuss the possibility of the
Baptist Hospital contracting
St. Joe Ambulance Service.
Lee Munroe stated he had
attended the last Board
meeting at which the Board
agreed to write him concern-
ing the job performance of
Building Inspector DeWayne
Manuel and to date he had
not received this letter. The
Clerk reported this letter had
been written and was mailed
today.
The Clerk reported that the
Audit firm of May, Zima &
Company, had reported for
the special called audit meet-
ing, expressed regrets that
no one from the County
Commission came to the
special called meeting, and
said that they would be
willing to meet with the
Board at their convenience.

In Between Seasons



Summer Gardens


BY ROY LEE CARTER
County Extension Director
This is an in-between gar-
dening season- too late for-
summer flowers, and too
early for cool-season varie-
ties. But, most of all, it's just
too hot to spend much time
outside. Nevertheless, while
most of us agree this is no
time to' be doing a lot of
outdoor work, there are a
number of important sum-
mer gardening jobs. For-
tunately, they're relatively
easy.
For the most part, summer
gardening projects involve
pruning, pinching, and gen-
erally preparing plants for
future growth and blooming.
My tips on such warm
weather activities were pro-
vided by Extension Urban
Horticulturist, Dr. Robert
Black, of the University of
Florida's Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences.
You should prune roses
about the first of August.
Remove healthy top growth,


Documents

Needed to_

Alter Name
People in the North Florida
area should be aware of the
need for documentation to
substantiate a request for a
change of name on a Social
Security record, Ann R.
Kinard, Social Security field
representative for Gulf Coun-
ty, said recently.
A person who wants his or
her name changed for Social
Security purposes must pro-
vide evidence to establish his
or her identity. This evidence
must show both the person's
old and new name.
Uncertified photocopies of
documents are not sufficient.
Social Security must receive
either the original document
or a copy certified by the
agency that issued it. Any
document submitted to a
Social Security office will be
returned.
Additional information
about the procedure for
changing one's name on
Social Security records .can
be obtained from the Pana-
ma City Social Security
office, located at 30 W.
Government Street. The tele-
phone number is 769-4871.

gram. Graves then recom-
mended the following thre
persons for employment.
Johnnie Arnez Williams,
Franklin Romaine Pool, -and
John Wayne Wimberley. Up-
on motion by Comm. Branch,
second by Comm. Money,
and unanimous vote, the
Board accepted Graves' re-
commendation and hired
these three employees. -
There being no further

as well as dead twigs and
branches. Cut out any disea-
sed, injured or spindly
growth, and shorten the main
canes and lateral branches.
But, leave at least half "the
length of each main cane
that's one to three years old.
If you follow these recom-
mendations, the first flowers,
which can be expected in
mid-September, should be
larger than they would have
been without pruning.
If you're growing mums or
poinsettias, you should be
pinching back stem tips to
stimulate greater branching,
and promote heavier fall
flowering. But, do not pinch
too long- not after Septem-
ber tenth. Otherwise, you'll
be removing flower buds,
which will reduce the num-
ber of blooms.
This is also the time to
pinch off some of your
camellia buds. As soon as
you can distinguish the
rounded flower buds from the
pointed vegetative buds,
twist off all but one of the
flower buds of each tip. The
remaining buds should de-
velop into larger flowers.
Some camellia varieties such
asSasanquas and Japonicas,
are valued for their large
number of blooms, and don't
need to be pinched.
Many common ornamen-
tals, such as oleanders, hy-
drangeas, and azaleas, can
be propagated from summer
cuttings. To produce azaleas
in this manner, take tip
cuttings, three to five inches
long, with several leaves
attached. Place the cutting in
a rooting medium, and keep


them moist by covering them
with a plastic bag, or by
using a mist system. Many
rooting mediums can' be
used. The most common are
sand, and mixtures of peat
and perlite. You may want to
use a rooting hormone, to
hasten root growth.
If you have any cold
sensitive ornamental in your
landscape, you might think
about rooting a few cuttings
before winter, and keeping
the young plants in a protect-
ed place. Then, if some of
your tender ornamentals do
freeze, you'll have replace-
ments to set out in the spring.
If you want to start some
outdoor, plants now, ,you
could try bulb types, such as
Louisiana iris, ginger, cri-
nums, daylilies, amaryllis or
zephyr lilies. You can still
plant woody ornamentals as
well. But, hurry so they'll
have a chance to become well
established before cold wea-
ther arrives.
This also is the time to be
thinking about planting win-
ter annuals, such as baby's
breath, calendulas and pan-
sies. So start ordering your
seeds and preparing the beds
for cool-season flowers.

noise and fatigue, and the
situation spells "Danger."
Little wonder that alcohol is
involved in more than half
the serious boating acci-
dents.
PFD's- According to the
United States Coast Guard,
drowning causes 85 percent
of boating-related fatalities.
Before leaving the dock,
make sure a U. S. Coast
Guard approved Personal
Flotation Device (PFD) is
onboard for each person.
These should fit properly and
be readily accessible. Non-
swimmers and children
should wear PFD's at all
times.
Water skiing- When water
skiing, a third person is


needed whose only job is to
watch the skier. This leaves
the helmsman free to operate
the boat on a safe course
keeping a good lookout for-
ward in order to avoid other
boats, docks, moorings, fish-
ermen, and swimming areas.
Navigation- A good thing
for any navigator to know is
that aboard naval vessels,
each buoy is checked off as it
is passed even in good
visibility. This eliminates
surprises if visibility be-
comes limited. Knowing
where you are solves half the
navigation problem.
Anchor- If your boat's
engine fails, your anchor can
keep you from being blown
onto rocks, swept over a dam


or out to sea.
Capsizing- Stay with the
boat if it capsizes. Climb on
top of it if you can. You'll
stay warmer and it will be
easier for rescuers to see
you.
Overloading- Overloading
is a major cause of boating
accidents. So stay within the
limits listed on your capacity
plate and carry fewer people
in rough weather.
Night lights- On the water
everything looks different at
night. When boating at night,
be sure you're familiar with
the charts and know where to
look for lights and how to
distinguish one from another.
Also, protect your night
vision by turning off interior


lights and avoiding search
lights and flashlights. Use a
dim red light to check your
charts.
A day spent on the water
can be the happiest of days.
Safe habits can help keep it
that way.

can sometimes make a vital
difference.
Among a list of safety tips
for boaters compiled by the
National Safe Boating Coun-
cil (NSBC) appear the follow-
ing:
Float Plan- Before an
airline pilot takes off, he-she
files a flight plan. Smart
boaters do the same but call
it a float plan. It should tell
where you are going, when
you plan to return, describes
your boat and names those
aboard. This can be left with
a friend or a neighbor who
can alert the Coast Guard if
you're overdue.
Weather- NSBC reminds
you that a safe boating trip
starts at home by listening to
the weather forecasts.
Broadcasts can be heard
continuously on marine wea-
ther channels and are also
available by phone. Check
again before you leave the
dock and on the water,
keeping an eye out for
changes in the sky, wind and
water, and your ear on the
radio.
Alcohol- Alcohol slows
reaction time and numbs the
senses. Balance is greatly
impaired by as little as one or
two drinks. Add to that the
movement and vibrations of
the boat, the glare of the sun,



Abuse of


Alcohol


Seminar

A free seminar on alcohol
abuse and prevention will be
held on Saturday, August 18
at St. James Episcopal
Church in Port St. Joe.
If you could save some-
one's life, would you take the
time to learn how to do it?
What if the life you save is
your own? Or that of a person
you love? Naturally, your
answer to those questions is
"Yes!" Of course you would.
. This seminar is designed to
`h6lp you do that very thing-
save a life.
The abuse of alcohol and
other drugs of choice is not a
private concern. It is a public
health problem. But it is a�
problem that can be over-
come by those who know how
to fight back.
This seminar will help
