Cars make their way slowly through a pond of water
which collected on Highway 98, east of the Apalachicola


Railroad overpass Monday morning. The water stood at
least a foot deep in much of the flooded area.

Rains Continue to Soak Gulf County As Record Falls In July


Rains continued to fall on Gulf
County in great buckets-full over the
week end, adding another 10 inches to
the 9.7 inches which fell the week end
prior. ,
1
'Again The Star called on the
records of its official unofficial
weather person to find out that July
has now set a record for rainfall this
year-a record for the past 20 years,


at least.
According to Mrs. Smmons, July
saw a total of 22.3 inches of rainfall
here in Gulf County. According to
Mrs. Smmons, the previous 20 year
high came in Jily of 1975 when a total
of 20 inches were recorded.
S aturday night, Sunday and
Monday seemed to be inordinately
damp here in Gulf County and Mrs.


8nmons verified the feeling by
reporting there were nine inches of
rainfall from S saturday evening
through Sinday. Monday, an addition-
al four inches were recorded.
This deluge caused some real
problems in and around Port S. Joe,
causing flooding on Highway 98 and,
throughout the entire City. Entire lots
were flooded with yards taking on the


appearance of a lake and ditches full
to the brim.

The biggest inconvenience from
the rainfall came Monday morning,
when a portion of Highway 98 was
flooded with about a foot of water
from the Overpass, eastward to the
railroad crossing. This section of
highway flooded regularly in the past,
but repairs and renovation of the


drain system by the Department of
Transportation has minimized flood-
ing over the past few years.
Streets and yards were reported
flooded all over town Monday, with
one of the most noticeable instances
being the entire front lawn of the
United Methodist Church.
Officials said most of the drainage
system in the area was working
properly, but there was just too much


water for it to handle. Isolated
incidents of stopped up drains were
caused by the torrential rains washing
debris into the drain pipes, stopping
them up.
Wednesday morning, a tropical
depression was reported to be forming
in the Gulf of Mexico, possibly in
preparation for a hurricane or storm.
Here in the Port St. Joe area, the rains
had stopped for a while.


DER Slaps Suit Against Gulf County


While Working with Attorney, Engineers, to Reach Agreement


The Florida Department of Environmental Regulation
unloaded both barrels of a double-barrel legal shotgun at -
|{ Gulf County in Circuit Court last Thursday, which could
cost the county up to $15 million in fines and costs.
In a two count complaint against the county, signed by
Eugenia L. Williamson, assistant general counsel for DER,
the county is charged with operation, of the Port St. Joe
landfill site without permits and failure to file permit
applications on time for the Buckhorn landfill site.
Entitled a "Petition for Enforcement", the action seeks
to secure a permanent injunction from the court to enjoin
the county from further use of the Port St. Joe landfill site;
issue a mandatory injunction requiring the county to close
the landfill site; levy a fine against the county of up to
$10,000 a day for every day the Port St. Joe dump has been
in operation since November 1, 1980 and grant other and,
further relief as may be appropriate.
According to the order, the Port St. Joe site was turned
down by DER as an unsuitable site on Jme 1, 1977 and has


operated since that time without a valid permit. DER told
_the countyjin Julyl.1979.of Gulf's violation.and.ordered that a
permit application be made for operation of .the site or
closing it down. A period/of 180 days were give to comply.
Since that time Gulf county and DERl' have been
working together to come up with an alternative to the site,
which is located on Industrial Road, just north of Basic, Inc.
Only recently, the county has come up with a plan to
compact area solid waste and truck it to the Buckhorn site
and called for bids to construct the plant last week, with
the approval of DER.
SECOND COUNT
The second shell in the double-barreled legal shotgun of
DER was aimed at the Buckhorn site and was probably the
reason for the heavy ammunition of DER being called into
play.
The petition cites the county for failure to have its
request for a landfill operation permit in to DER by the


expiration date of April 1, 1984. This situation was brought
about when an .engineering firm- hired- to, dothe job of
,-applying for the permit; failed to do so.
The deadline had already passed when the county found
out the permit application had not been filed. 1
The application was finally filed around the first of
July, but the citation filed against the county scores the
county for failure to supply all the information required to
complete the plan. This information had been mailed the
county on a form letter last week, pointing out that plans to
place all county solid waste in one landfill site would
upgrade its requirements and the county would have to
answer to those requirements before an operating permit
could be granted.
The petition asked for application of a penalty of


$10,000 per day since April 1, 1984.
County attorney'William J. Rish told The Star, the
county has 20 days for answering the petition. "It came as a
real surprise to me, since we had dialogue with DER over
Gulf County's plans for handling solid waste and they
seemed pleased with the plans." Rish said he felt that
failure to file a permit request on time was the reason for
the action being filed. "Failure to get the permit application
in on time was not the county's fault. The engineering firm
has admitted they were notified to get the report up and just
didn't do it", Rish said.
The attorney said upgrading of the county's solid waste
, program over the past few years and implementation of the
trailer collection program have received good grades from
DER.


Dam


Permits Expected to be Approved

This Month for Removal of Structure


Applications have been made for all the
necessary permits and the project is moving
along in a smooth and steady fashion toward
removal of the Dead Lakes Dam,according
to information received this week from Bill
McCartney of the Northwest Florida Water
Management District, the agency charged
by the'Florida Legislature with supervising
the dam's removal.
McCartney told The Star yesterday,
"There is no reason to feel the permits (for
removal) will not be in our hands and
approved during the month of August".
The Water Management people were
charged by the Florida Legislature and the
Governpr with assuming the responsibility of
getting the necessary permits and having the
dam removed, after the people of both Gulf
and Calhoun voted overwhelmingly in favor
of taking the.dam out in a straw ballot this
past spring.
McCartney said, "It's unfortunate, but
the dam was built wrong to do the job it was
supposed to do and the only way to correct
the situation is to take it out and start all over
or leave the lakes in their natural state".
McCartney said permits were requested
from the U. S. Corps of Engineers, the
Department of Environmental Regulation
and the Water Management District's own
regulation division on July 13. "They have 90
days to respond to the request and give their
decision on whether or not to approve the
removal of the dam. We then have 120 days
to secure bids from a contractor and get to
. work on the actual dismantling of the dam",
McCartney said.
Based on McCartney's version of the
timetable for procedure, actual dismantling
of the dam should begin around the first of
the year or in the early part of January.
"We intend to proceed with deliberate
speed" to get the dam taken out, McCartney
said.


The water Management executive said
he had already been informed by the
agencies involved that their decision will be
handed down by the deadline set out by the
Legislation and probably prior to the
deadline. "They have indicated there will be
no foot-dragging", he said.
The action by the Water Management
Board is the climax of a movement which
started over a year ago to have the dam
removed when it was determined it was
adversely affecting the fish population in the
lakes, preventing natural spawning action,
migration, food production and a pollution
build-up. A straw ballot held in conjunction
with the Presidential Preference ballot in
March saw voters from both Calhoun and
Gulf County vote by a great margin to have
the dam removed.
The dam was first built with gates to
allow for periodic draw-down of the Lakes
back in the late 50's, but within a few days
after construction was finished, the dam
collapsed. There was not enough money to
build it back according to plan, so the
present tumbler dam was constructed to
serve as a "second best" with the money
available to the Dead Lakes Water Manage-
ment District.
When it was learned the tumbler dam
was affecting the lake by encouraging
aquatic growth which threatened to choke
up the waterway, a draw down structure was
built in the 1960's, designed to allow the lakes
to be drained and the forces of nature to
attack the aquatic growth.
But, even this attempt failed because of
the lack of enough money to do the job
correctly. Opponents of the dam claim the
draw down structure is not low enough to
allow adequate drainage of the lake.
Removal of the dam will cause the Dead
Lakes to revert to their natural state of
fluctuation which it experienced for hun-
dreds of years prior to the construction of the
dam.


Dem. Leader
Takes Leave
of Absence

The chairman of the Gulf
County Democratic Execu-
tive Committee, Joyce Wil-
liams, stepped down from
that position this week, tak-
ing a leave.of absence from
the post. Williams said she
was vacating the chair of the
committee due to a possible
conflict which might result
from her campaign for re-
election as Property Ap-
praiser.
The Democratic commit-
tee was scheduled for a
regular meeting yesterday
afternoon, at which time it
was expected that vice-chair-
man George Jones of Wewa-
hitchka would be elevated to
the chair.

DER Action Is Unfortunate


We can't really castigate the
Department of Environmental Regula-
tion for coming down on Gulf County
with filing a suit against the county. On
one hand, we can't fault them and on
the other hand we can.
On the one hand, DER has been
going along with the county, allowing
us to do what we had to do in order to
come up with a solid waste collection
Sand disposal system which would meet
DER's regulations. There was no
threat of a suit, merely an admonition
that the work had to be done and it was
the county's responsibility to get it
done.
Given our low-lying property in
most of Gulf County, it isn't the easiest
thing in the world to come up with a
location which meets DER's specifica-
tions. They are stringent, as are all
environmental regulations in the state.
DER feels the regulations are neces-


Old Enough to


Know Better
Was Vanessa Williams wrong in
.posing for the nude photos which cost
ib er the Miss America title, or, if she
ivas, was she wrong tothe point where
the title should have been stripped
from her?
ro William Raspberry, a columnist
-:for the Tallahassee Democrat, who
happens to be a Black man, like Miss
-,Williams is a Black woman, said this
past week she was definitely wrong. As
.' matter of fact, we used the word
:woman" on purpose in the lines above
because the whole subject of Rasp-
berry's column was that Miss Wil-
liams' actions had forfeited her claim
to the adjective, "lady".
While it is only natural Miss
; Williams' parents would support her
.-action and claim she was victimized,
not responsible, juvenile decision, etc.,
R'-aspberry says, "The thing is indefen-
sible, and we -should stop confusing
our children by suggesting otherwise".
We agree with Mr. Raspberry.
Most girls, at age 18, have established
morals which will determine whether
or not they will shuck their clothes and
cavort around in pornographic poses or
not. Most will not.. It has always
seemed such a waste of beautiful
womanhood that seemingly the most
beautiful are the most eager to have
themselves suggestively photograph-
ed. Miss Williams is a beautiful
woman. It's a pity her beauty has been
< tarnished with the mildew of such
sleazy pictures. We say she was old
enough to know better. We know she
was because a majority of those her
age (when the photos were taken) have
told us all year long how responsible
they are when it comes to deciding
whether or not they can be trusted to
drink liquor.


sary to protect our fragile environment
here. DER seemed to recognize Gulf
County's problem and realized, too, we
didn't have the money to "try" this
method and that one. When we moved,
it had to be the right move and still be
at a cost our people could afford.
We think the action which actually
set DER off and made them apply the
fine was the fact that the permit for the
one approved landfill in the county-
Buckhorn-wasn't turned in on time. It
was called for back in February with a
June deadline on its filing. Five days
before the deadline, the county receiv-
ed a query as to whcre the permit was.
A check revealed the engineers hired
to do so, had not filed the application.
', If we had to guess, that is the
reason DER has dropped the other
shoe and filed papers against Gulf


County, even though the application
has since been filed out and turned in to
DER, along with an explanation as to
why it was late. Possibly to DER the
excuse sounded much like the "Your
check is in the-mail" excuse which is so
common.
It is unfortunate that DER felt
they had to resort to such lengths just
when the county has finally decided on
an acceptable route to follow in
handling solid waste and only last week
called for bids for its construction.
Estimates are that the system will be
in operation by the end of this year.
In all likelihood, DER will drop the
fine and not insist on its being paid. It's
just unfortunate communications were
not as they should have been between
the county and DER in order to head
off any threat 'of a fine.


Fly the Friendly Skies


There's no other way to do
it so I'm just going to admit
it: flying scares the heck out
of me!
Flying is one of those
things that I have always
been leary of, but lately it has
become a real problems. It's
sorta like playing with
snakes: you might do it a
little when you are young, but
once you know the danger,
you don't even like to look at
them.
The news reported that last
week marked a inilestone in
recent aviation history. They
said that there hadn't been a
fatal commercial airplane
crash in one whole year in the
United States. That would be
good news' to most people,
and it was to me, but it
scared me even more. You
see, I have been doing a lot of
flying lately and, in my
estimation (and I hope I'm
wrong), it's about time for
one. It's just a matter of
where and when, I think.
Just the other day I over-
heard two men talking about
airplane crashes in a bar.
One man wondered why so
many crashes happened
around airports, while the
airplanes were either taking
off or landing. The other
man, after taking a long
drink, stated that he knew


the reason. "It's because,"
he stated emphatically, "all
that taking off and landing
uses up all the air around the
airports and there is little air


left to hold up the other
planes." I ordered a double
Jack Daniels, on the rocks! I
was on my way to the
Memphis airport to fly to
Florida.
It wasn't long ago that I
thought that it would never
happen to me. "So what?" I
thought, "if it goes down
there are about a hundred
people here -that will go with
me. At least I won't be
alone." My thinking has
changed drastically within
the last year or so.
Now it doesn't matter if the
whole world is on the plane, I
just sit and pray that it will,
take off and land in a safe
manner. And I always look
for a person who looks like a
preacher or a priest on
board. Sometimes I even ask


several people before we
take off and if one is, I try to
sit by them. One day I was so
scared that I stood up after
everyone was seated and


asked, "Is there a person of
the Cloth on board?"' No one
raised their hand so I de-
planed. It was a long drive to
the sales meeting, but I
arrived alive.
Another thing that bothers
me about flying is that I
always seem to sit by some-
one who wants to talk. They
usually sit there chatting
away like they are on their
way to a Sunday School
picnic. Or, they will sit there
reading a paper or magazine
like they wre in front of a fire
in their den. I wonder why
they don't look to see that the
flaps are down for takeoff, or
try to see if we are nearing
the end of the. runway. I
believe that passengers could

By Kesley Colbert
My wife got back to town
safe and sound Monday
night. She'd been to see some
relatives now don't misun-
derstand, I love her people -
it just wasn't convenient for
me to make the trip this
time. Last time she went I
was sick and couldn't go.
Time before that I had hurt
my leg... I even know a cou-
ple of then by name.
Shucks, I promised her I'd
be ready to go next time ...
unless, of course, something
comes up.
She and the boys were
gone for a week. She was
worried about how I'd make
out by myself for a week.
Nothing to it. She had been
gone before and I had sur-
vived; I assured her I'd be
O.K.
A couple of years ago
before she left, she'd sat
down with me and gone over
everything I needed to do
around the house while she
was gone. She even had a list
of meals I was to prepare -
things that she said would be
simple to cook. I remember
hamburger and french fries
were on the menu for the
first night. You ever cook a
hamburger that was burned
on the outside and raw on thd


inside? You ever try to eat
one of those things? And the
grease from the french fries
popped all over my hand and
arm and after all that,
Cathy had bought some
soggy french fries. I couldn't
eat them. And then I couldn't
find the hamburger buns.
You every try to eat a half
raw, half burned hamburger
on, a piece of bread? Boy, ..
howdy, I lost 12 pounds that
week.
I found out later that the
hamburger buns were in the
bread box. Now she keeps
the loaf bread on the counter
by the stove. If she doesn't
keep the bread in the bread
box, why am I to assume
that the hamburger buns
might be in there. I just can't
figure out the filing system.
You take the sugar for in-
stance, I get my tea water
boiling and look in the pretty
canister clearly marked
"sugar" setting on top of yet
another counter top and
there's nothing in it. I look
into the one next to it marked
"flour" and guess what -
it's full of flour. I drink tea
all week without sugar.
Cathy, bless her heart,
returns and I find out that
she keeps the sugar in the
pure cane bag in the cabinet


underneath the counter. The
empty sugar canister is just
kept on the counter top so the
set will be intact. Only my
wife would do something like
that.
Last time Cathy "took a
vacation" she left me some
stiff you "jist heat up in the
microwave". Well, I've
already told you that I don't
eat that kind of food. But my
neighbors that live behind us
took care of me that week.
Mark's wife, old what's her
name (Mary Jo, I think it is)
brought supper over- every
night. Now, I know that she
doesn't look the part, but she
can really cook. Problem is,
she's mad at me right now (I
don't have any idea as to
why she's mad) and she
didn't bring a thing over.
Maybe her name is Betty
Jean.
This past week as Cathy
was backing out of the drive
she said, "I left you a few
candy bars in the refrigera-
tor, do the best you can".
I did O.K. with the eating
part this past week it was
the washing that did me in.

There's No Set Time for Dog Days


- Just Have Them When You Like


WE ARE WELL underway, now,
with dog days. According to common
legend, the period known as dog days
started last week and will continue
until early :September. During that
time, we will dig for a cool spot in
which to stay, switch away the .flies,
fight fleas, and pant from the
excessive heat.
Sound like a dog? That could be
the reason the six week period of deep
summer weather was named dog
days'.
Dog days here in the Panhandle of
Florida means showers of rain
practically every afternoon. For that
reason, I think we're trying to get our
Sd.og days crowded into three weeks
'this year, rather than the normal six
weeks. We had about two months of
dry weather, but now that dog days
have set in, we're getting our showers
two a day, rather than the one a day
which usually accompanies dog days.
'+ + +++++
WHILE NOBODY HAS ever got-
S en into a fight over it, so far as I can
tell, dog days are one of the most


controversial of seasons. When does it
begin and when does it end? Unlike
spring, summer, fall and winter, there
is no date on the calendar with the
declaration, "First day of dog days".


official end.
EVEN THE DICTIONARY does-
n't nail dog days down and give it
specific boundaries in which to be

Dog days apparently can start when
you want them to and end at the same
time. They aren't officially declared a
season, even though the weather
changes which come with dog days
are just as pronounced as some of the
other seasons.
Dog days gets treated like a dog.
Nobody gives it the respect of
declaring an official beginning and an

celebrated, castigated, cremated or
certified.
According to my Webster's dic-
tionary-and I have one of those
Dictionary's which is about six inches
thick--dog days has no definite
schedule. Too, my dictionary doesn't
give the same estimated period of
time for dog days I have seen in other
dictionaries.
In my Dictionary, it srys: DOG


often reckoned from July 3 to August
11."
Another dictionary I saw just the
other day says dog days comes in
during the last week of July (about)
July 25) and continues until the first
week in September. So, even diction-
aries differ with the date of dog days.
I remember Jimmy Greer used to
tell me dog days followed the later


schedule which had dog days begin-
ning the last week in July. Jimmy
hadn't seen either dictionary I looked
at, so his information came from
somewhere else.
Probably from his father or
grandfather, which is probably as
accurate as any other piece of
information.
Still, nobody pins a definite date
on dog days, its beginning or its end.
THIS BIT OF getting its name
from a star is even not very reliable
information. My dictionary said dog
days started when the dog star rises
with the sun. The other dictionary said
dog days coincided with the period
when the dog star was the brightest
star in the heavens.
While neither said it, both inti-
mated that dog days received its
name from its close association with
the activity of the dog star.
REGARDLESS OF WHAT its.
origin, I believe the name "dog days"
is a put down for the six week period in
which the special season is supposed


to be.
Consider if you will, the word,
"dog eared". It means seedy looking,
dilapidated, in bad repair or scrungy.
Then there's "dog tired" which means
a special kind of tired which doesn't
have a positive reaction. We exercise
and get delicious tired. We work and
get satisfied tired. But, when we're
"dog tired", we're too tired to even
think. It's a bad situation. Then
there's the word "Dogface"; a term
adopted by the army to describe the
lowest of army life. The "dog house"
is a place 'o be avoided by most
husbands. gain, the simple word
"dog" being accompanied by the
word "house" makes a kind of house
we want to avoid.
There's no use drawing a parallel
with the word "dog fly". We all know
the bane of those things.
Conclusion:
I think "dog days" got their name
from being days in which only mad
dogs (again a derogatory use of the
word dog) and Englishmen would
dare to get outside and pursue
activities they didn't just have to do.

help prevent a lot of airplane
crashes if they were a little
more observant.
There is something else I
have thought of that could
prevent most of the airplance
crashes. The government or
the airline companies could
start putting up giant nets all
across the country. These
nets should be made out of
real strong nylon or soft
steel, and erected about a
mile or so in the air; If ah
airplane had trouble, the
pilot could just set it down in
one of the conveniently lo-
cated nets, and a long ladder
could be dropped down to the
ground and everyone could
climb down. It might cost a
bit but there is no value to be


placed on human life, especi-
ally mine.
Like all things I fear, I
have been able to learn
something- from my fear of
flying. Just yesterday I call-
ed my wife and told her I was
coming home. I also com-
plained about the long drive.

"Why don't you just catch

time to fool with it what with
my work, and piano lessons
and all.
I did try to pick the house
up a little before Cathy
returned, at least I picked
'the newspapers up out of the
living room floor. And I did
get most of the cat food up
off the bedroom carpet. Sue-
Cat had decided she'd take
her meals in the bedroom
while everyone was away. I
hated that the goldfish died;
: I think I must have overfed
it. First time I ever had to
feed a goldfish.
I had everything almost in
order when Cathy and the
boys returned. I kissed and
hugged 'em all, told them
how much I missed them,
hated it when the boys cried
about Fishy, played "Un-

piano, and told Cathy that
before she went into the

know that it had rained down

to finance an increase in the
school day and number of
days school will be in session
this coming year. "We will go
from six to seven periods per
day and earn an additional
$93,000 from state sources
because of the change",
Superintendent Walter Wilder
said.
Most of the additional
money will go to increase
employee salaries and to pay
for the normal rise in prices
of services and supplies.
The Sfhool Board is expect-
ed to approve a general
operation budget of $6,084,-
019.94; a special service
budget of $677,175.75; debt
service of $764,599.43 and a
capital project budget of
$186,884.42, for a total budget
of $7,712,679.54.
A breakdown of the budget
can be found on page 10 of
this week's issue of The Star.
In conjunction with the
budget notice, the Board is
advertising its intention to
increase their tax receipts by
11.6 "percent. The move is
dictated by the state which


determines how much mon-

According to preliminary
work on the budget, the

portion which finances all
local services with the excep-
tion of self financed func-
tions-will be increased by
$180,000. Other portions of the
City's budget will be reduc-
ed, making a reduction in the
budget's grand total.
Last year's budget totaled
$5,748,109. Preliminary fig-

pegged at $5,579,752.00, or a

In other budget items,

AFTER CATARACT
SURGERY
Q. After cataract surgery,
how soon can one see
clearly?
. A. There is a period of heal-
ing after cataract surgery
before you can get opti-
mum vision from post-
cataract eyeglasses or
contact lenses. That
period varies in different
patients. However, there
are interim glasses that
can be prescribed for you
to make the weeks bet-
ween the surgery and
your final prescription
more comfortable visual-
ly.
The newer cataract
lenses, whether for in-
terim or ultimate use, are
lighter in weight and con-
siderably thinner than the
thick, unattractive spec-
tacles you may remem-
ber seeing on others in
past years. Technological
improvements in the
grinding of post-cataract
Senses now allow optom-
etrists to fit postsurgical
patients with corrections
that cause only minimal
distortions and minimal
abnormal magnification.
The newer lenses also
provide a broader field of
vision than had previous-
ly been possible.
Q. Are post-surgical glasses
covered by Medicare?
A. Post-surgical glasses and
contact lenses prescribed
for patients who have un-
dergone surgery are
covered by Medicare.
This provision also in-
cludes coverage for
reading glasses or
bifocals to be worn over
contact lenses or ocular
implants.

Ted McLane


to the areas of. community
service. He called for a more
serious effort at supporting
the student exchange pro-
gram which is one of Ro-
tary's primary projects.
McLane said he had set a
goal of seeing 100 new "Paul
Harris Fellows" created in
District 694 during the com-
ing year. The Port St. Joe
club currently has five Paul
Harris Fellows, a special
recognition which is conferr-.
ed on a Rotarian for unusual
outstanding service.
The District Governor said
most such awards spring out
of the primary function of
each club, that of furnishing
civic leadership in their
communities.
Guests of the club were

, Simplify Lawn Care


THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla. THURSDAY, AUG. 2, 1984 PAGE SEVEN


- Recycle Grass Clippings


Leaving Clippings On Lawn Reduces Need


Keeping your turfgrass
clippings and following sim-
ple guidelines can save you


money, time, and energy and
can simplify your lawn care
as well, according to Dr.
Robert J. Black, homeowner
ornamental horticulturist
with the Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences
(IFAS) at UF.
Ideally, mowing should re-
move no more than one-third
of the leaf surface of a lawn
at a time. Holding to tnis
criterion and leaving the
clippings, Black stated, will
allow valuable nutrients to
return to the soil without
contributing to the build up of
thatch.
The recommended mower
setting is, for example, two
inches for St. Augustine and
three inches for Bahiagrass,
allowing a growth of one inch
before mowing. Do not mow
the grass when it is wet,


Black cautioned. This causes
the cuttings to clump.
Clippings usually contain
about four percent nitrogen,
0.5 percent phosphorus, and
about two percent potassium
as well as all the minor
elements that plants require.
The lawn will require less
additional fertilizer. Black
reports that recycling clip-
pings can save as much as
two pounds of nitrogen per
1,000 square feet per year.
Citizens in Plano, Texas
found that if they retained
their clippings, they could
save annually approximately
$88,000 extra on plastic bags,
$13,500 on fuel and $36,000 on
labor for the trips and work
hours required to remove the
clippings.
Black added that if lawn
clippings must be collected
-they are an asset to a
compost heap. They improve



Special


Scout


Rates
August has been declared
Boy Scout Month at the USS
Alabama Battleship Memori-
al Park in Mobile. Captain
William J. Diffley, executive
director says a number of
special opportunities will be
available to visiting scout
troops.
"We are encouraging
scouts to visit the battleship
and submarine USS Drum to
learn more about the history
behind these ships," Diffley
noted. The Battleship Com-
mission has designed a speci-
al USS Alabama Battleship
patch for visiting scouts.
A special rate of $2.00 per
scout is being offered during
August. Troop leaders will be
admitted free of charge. For
an information kit, leaders
should contact the Scout
Coordinator c-o USS Ala-
bama, P.O. Box 65, Mobile,
Alabama N6O91WL-I. .....
Diffley says a special com-
partment is being prepared'
on board the battleship for
overnight accommodations of
up to 30 scouts. "We are
making it possible fpr se-
veral troops to spend the
night on board and find out
how the seamen of World
War II lived while at sea," he
added.
The battleship USS Ala-
bama is a memorial to
Alabama veterans of World
War II and the Korean
Conflict. The battleship, sub-
marine USS Drum and other
attractions in the 75 acre
park are open to visitors
daily from 8:00 a.m. until
sunset. Battleship Park is
located in Mobile on Battle-
ship Parkway, just off Inter-
state 10 on Mobile Bay.

Black said.
Turfgrasses generally re-
quire no more than 0.3 inch of
water per day and perhaps
0.4 inch per day in extreme
summer conditions. In the
dormant winter period, as
little as 0.5 inch per day may
be required.
A simple watering sche-
dule recommended by Black
would be to apply three-
fourths inch of water two to
three times a week in sum-
mer or every 10 to 14 days in
winter. This must be adjust-
ed to soil and climatic
conditions to accommodate
rainfall or the lack of it.
Efficient watering wets only
the root zone. It does not
saturate the soil or run off.
The best time to water is in
the early morning. Less
water will be lost to evapora-
tion. Watering in late after-
noon or late morning extends
the time the lawn is naturally
wet from dew and increases
the risks of disease. Too
frequent watering can cause
the development of a shallow
root system more vulnerable
to drought.
For slow, even growth,

CLERK OF CIRCUIT COURT
Now the Clerk's job is a busy one,
Like a housewife's work, it's never don e.
Calls come in all thru the day,
They may be near or far away.
"Give me the book and page number too".
Says the voice of the caller you're speaking to.
We search our records and try to find,
The answer to the question, the caller has in mind.
The pages flip and the computer hums, :
The answer is given; another task is done.
We enter the Courtroom with files in hand,
Ready to proceed at the Judge's command.
Here comes the Judge; austere and wise,
As the Bailiff proclaims "Everyone rise".
The records of the Court we keep every day,
The jurors and witnesses we faithfully pay.
Collect fines and costs, forfeitures, too,
This is another task we do.
Now comes the time for Commissioners to meet,
The Clerk must be present for their minutes to keep.
Transcribing is done by the Clerk with a smile,
They are indexed, filmed and put into file.
The Commissioners have met; your, money is spent,
To the Clerk, the checks are hastily sent.
As Treasurer and Auditor, you can be sure,
Your funds are kept safe and secure.
Foreclosures are held, property is sold,
"Cash on the line", the bidder is told.
Tax deeds are issued, when money is paid,
And now disbursements are to be made.
For marriage license, to the Clerk you must come,
Be sure to bring that special someone.
Many hats are worn by the Clerk, you see,
You have just read about a few of these.
But I'd like it and I'd shed no tears,
So just give me the CHANCE TO BE YOUR CLERK FOR
THE NEXT FOUR YEARS.

referred to his letter of reply.
to the Board dated July 5,
1984, in which he requested
the Board reconsider an
increase in its commitment
of $15,000.00 for the Church
Avenue reconstruction pro-
ject in Wewahitchka to
$20,000.00 due to the project
being extended by the County
Commission to include cor-
rection of a drainage prob-
lem on Church Avenue be-
tween Second Street and
Third. Street, applying of
pavement leveling course to
each end of the bridge over
the Chipola River near the
dam and repaving a portion
of Highway 22 near Lister's
Hardware Store. Kilbourn
proposed the Board give the
City of Wewahithcka the total
$20,000.00 in one payment or
the City of Wewahitchka give
this project to the County.
Comm. Gortman reported he
had suggested to the City of
Wewahitchka that these ad-
ditional projects be perform-
ed at the same time under
one contract to save money.
. Comm. Gortman then moved
with the addition of the
bridge paving project and
drainage project to the
Church Avenue reconstruc-
tion project, the Board allow
the City of Wewahitchka
$20,000.00 contribution to-
ward these projects. In addi-
tion, the Board shall sepa-
rately advertise to receive
bids to pave the approaches
to the Simmons Bayou Brid-
ge. Comm. Branch seconded
the motion and it passed
unanimously. After further
discussion, Comm. Gortman
moved the Board advance

Mole Crickets Delight In Doing Damage

Bait or Spray Program Should be, Applied at First Sign of Tunneling Damage


BY ROY LEE CARTER
County Extension Director
On warm evenings, you
may have noticed some
strange looking, six-legged
critters crawling around be-
neath nearby street lamps.
Because of their added ap-
pearance, you've probably
tried to avoid these insects.
Actually, you have nothing to
fear, they're harmless to
humans. But they can be
deadly to your lawn. I will try
to describe their habits and
how to control these beastly
burrowers.
Mole crickets live in the
soil and feed on plant roots.
Their front legs are short and
stout, well adapted for tun-
neling. Their velvety skin is
light brown, and the adults,
which reach a length of about

one-and-a-half inches, have
prominent wings folded over
their backs. My information
for this article was provided
by Extension Entomologist
Dr. Don Short of the Univer-
sity of Florida.
Each spring mole crickets
lay eggs in the soil. The
nymphs, which hatch in
about two weeks, look like


the adults, except they're
smaller and lack full de-
veloped wings. These
nymphs mature very gradu-
ally, reaching adulthood the
following spring. Thus, there
is only one generation per
year.
Although mole crickets live
mostly below ground, the
adults are readily attracted
to lights, especially in the
spring and throughout the
summer. At these time,
they're commonly found un-
der streetlamps, electric
signs and similar illumina-
tion.
Mole crickets are most
active at night, especially
after a rain or irrigation, and
when the temperature is
about 70 degrees fahrenheit.
Under these conditions,
they make burrows in the
upper inch or two of the soil,
and occasionally, they will
partially emerge to gather


Picking Up A


Fawn Is
The practice of picking up
supposedly "orphaned fawn
deer" from the wild and
making pets of them has
been specially permitted in
the past but may be a rarity
in the future.
"We ,issued 22 permits in-
the pandhandle last year for
people to possess deer," said

Illegal
Major Tom Garrison, Re-
gional Manager for the Game
and Fresh Water Fish Com-
mission (G.F.C.).
"Some of the permit re-
quests were valid due to the
people legally buying the
deer or keeping the deer for
several years but the majori-
ty of the permits were for
fawns picked up unnecessari-
ly."


He said most people are
well-meaning and assume
when they find a fawn that it
has been abandoned or the
doe killed, but that rarely is
the case.
"When an intruder comes
into the area, the doe simply
retreats., until it's safe,"
Garrison said.
He said the peak period '
locally when deer give birth
to their fawns is from late
July through early Septem-
ber.
Garrison said anyone pick-
ing up a fawn deer over the
next several weeks will be
accompanied by a wildlife
officer back to the-tapture-""
site and the deer released, if
within 24 hours of when the
animal was originally picked
up.
If the time span is more
than 24 hours, or the doe
accompanying the fawn has
been killed, the deer will be
transferred to a G.F.C. licen-
sed caretaker of sick and
injured wildlife.
"What most people fail to
realize is once that deer is
taken from the wild and
becomes dependent on hu-
mans, the animal must be
cared for throughout its
lifetime or else released in a
specially protected area,"
said Garrison.

bits of food. These surface
burrows, which range from
about one eighth to three
quarters of an inch in diame-
ter, look like miniature mole
runs. This burrowing loosens
the soil, causing plants to dry
out. However, the most seri-
ous damage is caused by the
crickets feeding on the roots
of lawn grass.
Mole crickets can be con-
trolled by either sprays or
baits. Apply sprays or baits
when the overnight tempera-
ture is expected to be 70
degrees fahrenheit or higher,
and be sure the- .soil is moist.
If necessary; sprinkle the
area for about an hour before
application. Moisture aids
soil penetration of sprays,
and with baits it attracts the
mole crickets to the surface
to feed.
To insure even pesticide
coverage, it's best to treat no
more than 500 sq. ft. at a
time. Mark off the area to 'be


covered, and apply half the
recommended amount even-
ly back and forth in one
direction. Then, turn at right
angles and apply the rest.
After spraying, irrigate for
about 40 minutes. But, do not
water after applying baits.
Baits are more effective
when the fast-growing
nymphs needs a lot of food
from late June through Sep-
tember. But, the sooner baits
are applied after damage is
noticed, the more effective
they'll be. Baits may be
applied by hand, but be sure
to wear rubber gloves. For
sprays, a garden hose attach-
ment. applicator is' recom--
mended- one that requires
15 to 20 gallons of water
passing through the hose to
empty a quart jar. Regard-
less of whether you use a
spray or bait, a second
application in 10 days to two
weeks will provide better
control.
