Board Approves River Status

Unanimous Assent for Apalachicola As Outstanding Water

Gulf County's. Commis-
sioners gave their unanimous
assent to a plan by the
Department of Environmen-
tal Regulation to place the

upper Apalachicola River in
the category of an Outstand-
ing Water.
Tom Swihart made a pre-
sentation to the Commission,

asking for their assent to the
plan, which would place
stringent regulations on the
river for any development in
the future.
Swihart said DER would
make the decision regardless
of the Gulf County decision,
but the agency still asked for
local opinion before making

such a designation.
Swihart pointed out such a
designation would be nothing
new for the Apalachicola and
he advised the Commission
other counties along the river
were not unanimous in want-
ing the special regulations to
be placed on the river. "On

Dr. Charlton Prather, with

meeting Tuesday morning,
as advertised at the last

protests were not present as
they said they would be.
Rather than walk into a
hornet's nest of objections,
Dr. Prather got away with

unanimous approval of the

ther would be here Tuesday.
They vowed to meet him in
the Commission meeting, but
none showed up.
As a result, chairman
Everett Owens asked Dr.
Prather to send a septic tank
expert to Gulf County to see if
state regulations are being
followed and if Doug Kent,
the department's man char-
ged with implementing the
rules, fully understands

Chairman Owens said,
"We weren't able to satisfy
our people that Kent is only

will either correct Kent's
practices or convince the
people he is only following

S"That's all we can do. We
can't change the rules", Dr.
Prather said.

said Jackson county, Sneads

Chamber of Commerce op-
pose the move. "All other
counties along the rivet have

The Jackson and Calhoun
county interests oppose the
move because they fear the

James Hanlon was plea-

when it was determined he
had won election to the
School Board seat from Dis-
trict Three in the first

Hanlon had only a 46 vote

it appeared as if he were a
first primary winner in a
field of three.

Little-Bitty Jellyfish Shut Down Great Big Nuclear Power Plant

The lowly, spineless jellyfish
managed to do something last week
which batteries of legal minds and
hundreds of protesters had not
managed to do in several years-they
shut down operations of Florida
Power Corporation's nuclear electric
generating plant at Stuart. The
jellyfish came into the cooling water
intakes in droves, stopping up the
filter screens and shutting off the
cooling water supply to the plant.
The action by the jellyfish and
cutting off the cooling water supply
shut the plant down.

With a cost of several million
dollars a day facing Florida Power
while the plant was down, a frantic
search was initiated on what to do
about the invasion of the jellyfish and
how to prevent the same problem in
the future.
After sending out feelers every-
where they could think of, the name of
Raffield Fisheries floated to the top of
suggestions about what could be done
to correct the mountainous problem.
Calling on Raffield Fisheries to
correct a problem which is shutting
off the power supply to much of

central Florida, is about like the little
Dutch boy who put his finger in the
hole in the dike in the nursery rhymes.
Gene Raffield, manager of Raf-
field's here in Port St. Joe, said this
week, Florida Power called the
company last week, seeking the
company's expertise in handling the
hordes of small fish and sent a plane
into the Apalachicola airport to pick
him up.
"When I got to the generating
plant, I saw a school of jellyfish
outside the power company's cooling
water intake which they had measur-

ed at 20 miles long and three miles
wide. They had completely stopped
any water flow through the intake
pipes. That plant uses one million
gallons of cooling water a minute, so
you can imagine how big the problem
Raffield then sent back to Port St.
Joe for two of his firm's boats and a
large quantity of fine mesh net. "We
just surrounded those jellyfish with
our nets and placed nets so they
couldn't get into the water intake area
and the generating plant was able to
start up again," Raffield said

Talking with Raffield Tuesday of
this week, he said, "I heard from
them this morning, and they're still
operating normally, so I guess our
remedy worked fine."
Raffield said the plant had been
shut down for five days by the fish
invasion, "but they started up with 50
percent of production Saturday and
were operating at full production on
After arriving on the scene
Thursday and assessing the problem, ,
Raffield had one of the fishing fleet's
smaller boats trucked to Stuart, with

Sa full load of net, and a larger boat
made the run to the east coast city, to
help with the operation.
"We just diverted those pesky
jellyfish on down the coast to Miami
and let them figure out what to do with
them", Raffield said.
The jellyfish normally make up
into a school and follow the warm Gulf
stream south around this time, but
normally they don't come this close to
shore. "Possibly the hurricane head-
ed for the Florida coast at the time
had something to do with it", Raffield

Vote Count Totals
It took a while, last Wednesday, to finally
determine who the official winner would be in several
of the Gulf county races. The Star held up going to
press until nearly 5:00 in order to determine where the
run-offs would be and finally went to press with
unofficial and incomplete figures. The only race which
had been determined was that there would be a run-off
in the Sheriff's race between incumbent KIen Murphy
and challenger Al Harrison. The vote spread
determining this margin was only two ballots,
however, and as The Star went to press, the votes were
being counted again to make sure the count was
So, there were no official definite figures in last
week's paper, even though all trends toward the
outcome were correct.
This week, the complete, official vote totals are
available, and they are passed on here for your benefit.

Campaign Methods

Are Different

There is little similarity be-
tween the campaign just past and
campaigns of, say, 25 years ago
here in Gulf County. We don't know
but what the change is for the
One of the hold-overs from
those days of 20 to 25 years ago is
the political rally.
Here in Gulf County, we have
political rallies in almost every
voting precinct in the county. They
start about six weeks before the
election and continue every week
end until the bitter end of the
campaign season. While the rallies
drew large local crowds a few
years back, they draw little more
than the candidates, their imme-
diate families and their most
staunch supporters today.
What we're trying to say is that
it appears as if so many political
...rallies are now a waste of time for
the candidates and those few who
come to listen.
We're not advocating that the
rallies be discontinued altogether.
We're recommending that they be
reduced in number and made into
something interesting to attend. As
it now stands, one could go to one
rally and he would have heard most
of what each of the candidates has
S__to say at all the other rallies as

Is It Possti

America 7
It was with disbelief that we
read a column by Butler D. Shaffer
the other day in the News-Herald,
Schiding the U.S. entrants to the
SOlympics with being "too patrio-
tic" and over-doing the "I love my
Country" bit.
We weren't aware one could
'over-do such an attitude.
According to Shaffer the un-
abashed patriotism of the Ameri-
scan participants and spectators for
: being proud of their country and
their young men and women who
were earning medals for achieve-
ment right and left, left him "with
the same embarrassment I have
felt in other countries at seeing my
: ountrymen behaving like the
so-called 'ugly American' ".
First, there is a vast difference
:in behaving like the "ugly Ameri-
can" and behaving like one is
proud of his country.
Perhaps Mr. Shaffer would
rather hearken back to the days of

This sparse attendance at the
political rallies isn't a situation
which is peculiar just to Gulf
County. Several of the other papers
in this area say their county is
largely ignoring political rallies
One exception is Calhoun coun-
ty. Calhoun reported attendance of
some 2,000 at their rallies, but they
have only two in the pre-election
season, and they make an interest-
ing day of it. Not ohly is there
speaking, there is also eating and
Most of all, there isn't a
situation in which the people grow
tired of the repitition each and
every week.
Maybe if those who put on
political rallies here in Gulf County
would cut the number to two-one
in the north and one in the south
end of the county-the candidates
could get a viable message across
to more voters, more voters could
see what all the candidates looked
like and interest would be main-
Since we're in the business of
informing people, we can empa-
thize with the need to get one's
campaign before the people. We
believe a fewer number of rallies
with more emphasis given to,
attracting people to them would
serve everybody's interest better.

the Olympics held in Mexico when
some of the American winners
refused to stand at attention and
face their own flag when, "The
Star Spangled Banner"-was play-
ed, saluting the young athlete for
winning a medal.
Personally, we were touched
and proud of the young Mexican-
American who won the boxing gold
medal and stood with tears rolling
down his cheeks while the band
played the "National Anthem". It
stirred most of us much more than
the athletes who ignored their flag.
Maybe Mr. Shaffer was one of
those young people a few years
back who considered themselves as
being the ultimate of independents
by wearing the flag of their country
sewn to the seat of their britches.
We subscribe to the maxim of
"America, love it or leave it" and
not, "America, aren't you ashamed
of it?"

Carpenter's Creek

I'll bet there's not a person
reading this that knows
where Carpenter's Creek is
located. If you say you do,
you are telling a fib. The
reason is that Carpenter's
Creek ain't there anymore. It
was there though, and it was
a good place to swim. It was,
in my opinion, the second
best swimming' hole in our
neck-of-the-woods. Sandy-
Landy was the best. Let me
tell you about Carpenter's
I have no idea where the
name came from. The Car-
penter's didn't own it. As a
matter of fact, I didn't even

know any Carpenters. And, it
was a public swimming' hole
as far as I know.
It was located about three
miles south of Olive Road on
Davis Highway, one of the
main roads leading to Pensa-
cola, Florida. It was nestled
down in a valley, if you can
believe one exists in north-
west Florida. Anyway, it
flowed between two hills and
had a short concrete bridge
over it. There was also a
concrete floor under the
bridge to keep the water
from washing the foundation
of the bridge away. The
creek, or swimming' hole was

located on the east side of the
bridge and there were big
rocks, or concrete boulders,
piled on the immediate south-
eastern side of the bridge,
making that part of the creek
unswimmable. It was also
rumored that a nest of
poisonous snakes lived there-
The water was icy cold

and, although it wasn't
brackish, it was very dark,
especially in the deeper part.
The surrounding banks and
bridge made a natural diving

paradise for the boys who
came there to swim. You
could dive off the bank in the
shallow water, or take a

Hundreds of Miles Away from Earth and the Rest Room Is Broken

I CAN'T THINK of a worse
predicament to be in than to be

Earth, whirling about the universe in
a space ship, not due to come back to

some clown down here on Earth, with

thrilled with the command from
Ho'uston Space Center when their
toilet discharge started freezing an
icicle on the outside of the ship.

Lew Farris' barnyard was just

Objects to Wrong Information Used

Dear Mr. Ramsey,
I would like to take this
opportunity to thank the
people of Gulf County for the
privilege of letting me serve

streets and alleys to those
making the requests in the

bearing this expense in the
past. In most cases, the

property is divided between
adjoining property owners
when they are abandoned.

Commissioner Billy Branch,

officer, Jim Sealey. Schlick-

them the past seven years as
a law enforcement officer,
and hope to have the oppor-
tunity for many more years
of service.
As an investigator for the
Gulf County Sheriff's Depart-
ment, I feel compelled to
correct some of the misin-
formation that Mr. Harrison
has related to the public in
some of his recent campaign
ads for Sheriff.
In The Star which came out
on August 23, 1984 Mr.
Harrison had an ad which
stated he had arrested a
Guidance Counselor of the
Port St. Joe High School for
possession pf marijuana.
This ad was not true. The
person he arrested was not
an 'employee of the Gulf
County School system, much
less as a guidance counselor
of the high school. That ad
brought unwarranted discre-
dit to our school system, the
teachers and to my wife, who
was a guidance counselor at
the Port St. Joe High School
for the past six years. I
telephoned Mr. Harrison the
night this ad came out in the
paper and pointed out to him
the inaccuracy of his ad. He
told me that he was sorry for
the inconvenience and that
he would retract the ad in the
following Star. This he has
not done. It was even learned
that Mr. Harrison knew prior
to his ad being printed that it
was inaccurate. He insisted
that it be printed anyway.

The following week Mr.
Harrison displayed an ad in
The Star stating that of the
two thousand plus marijuana
plants the Sheriff's Dept. has
confiscated in the past, 1,547
of them were taken by the
Game and Fresh Water Fish
Commission. This ad was not
true either. Those plants
were taken straight to Bay'
County and were not docu-
mented by our department.
We do have documentation
on the 2,000 plus plants we
have confiscated.

THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla. THURSDAY, SEPT. 13, 1984


The facts about these cases
are on record at the Court-
house. If you are concerned
about who to believe, I invite
you to come see for yourself.
If Mr. Harrison insists on
building his credibility at the
expense of others, I hope he
can learn to differentiate
between the facts and fig-
ments of his imagination.
Phil McLeod
Gulf County Sheriff's

As a teacher, parent, and
involved citizen in Gulf Coun-
ty, I feel compelled to share
some concerns and reflec-
tions about the documentary,
"To Save our Schools; To
Save our Children," as it
relates to us.
The picture painted a grim
future for too many students.
The group it appears to
impact on most is the child
who is poor and belongs to a
minority (especially black or
of Asian descent).
The children who are ex-
periencing the problems dis-
cussed have several charac-
teristics in common. These
students usually cannot func-
tion academically on a grade
level commensurate with
their chronological age or
grade placement. They have
low self-esteem. They are
socially inept and emotional-
ly insecure. One may not
show signs of all weaknesses
but will exhibit deficits in
more than one area.
There seems to be a
paradox that parents are
striving, to realize the "Am-
erican Dream" and in the
process are losing an even
more important resource-
our young. Causes for this
are attributed to mothers
working, single-parent
homes, parents' involvement
in social and civic activities,
stratified school systems,
television and fad -techndlo-
gy. All of the above plus other
reasons too numerous to list
tend to impact in a negative
way on too many children.
Maybe, it would be of little
concern to me if only a small
segment of society would be
affected, but the facts indi-
cate that the total American
way of life and everyone will
be adversely affected in the
long run if those who are less
fortunate are permitted to
suffer neglect and inadequ-
ate academic training.
There must be something
that can be done in our
communities through the
churches, civic organizations
and schools beyond what is
now standard procedure to
alleviate the prevailing prob-
lems. Some suggestions
were: (1) Supervised pro-
grams after school for child-
ren who are considered

"latch key kids"; (2) Super-
vised homework centers; (3)
Early diagnosis and inter-
vention techniques to detect
and correct problems which
affect the learning process;
(4) Devise methods of reach-
ing and assisting parents who
need to improve parenting
Some efforts might have
been made to correct the
problems listed but more
needs to be done. Our church-
es can do more to provide
afterschool supervised
groups on a regular daily
basis. The civic organiza-
tions can foster a broader
range of programs geared to
academic excellence. The
school can get involved in
extended day programs and
parent academic skill build-
The leaders ie., preachers,
civic activists, and all board
members of our various
governmental units need to
make a commitment to edu-
cation and the future. Pro-
grams should be designed
and methods of implement-
ing them carefully spelled
out with realistic goals and
time allotments to determine
future actions and necessary
changes to insure our at risk
group a chance to become
productive, happy citizens. It
is not enough to do just what
is required in .he scope, of a
specific rol. 'All c'h ne d
must do more than is pre-
sently being done. -

running dive off the road
which was a drop of about
twelve feet. If one' was really
brave and testy, he could
dive off the bridge railing, a
drop of about twenty feet.
The drop, however, is not-
what made the dive danger-
ous. It was the fact that if you
didn't dive far enough out
you would hit the concrete
base of the bridge from
which you had dived. There
were many stories about
boys who didn't make it, but I
never knew one.
Some legendary events
happened around Carpen-
ter's Creek. Space or time
will not permit me to tell all
of them, but below are a few
that will give you some idea
of what I mean.
That bridge over Carpen-
ter's Creek is the place my
cousin, Willie Elmer, dived
from and hit his head on a
submerged stump and had to
be rushed to the hospital. The
stump supposedly punctured
his skull. The swimming part
of the creek is the place
where Jay Tharp, on a dare
from my brother, drove his
1949 Hudson. He was sure
after that party that he could
jump that creek. Actually, he
made it -about half way
across before he, the Hudson,
and his six-pack of Falstaff
sank to the bottom like a rock
in a fish bowl.

had to come out and drag me
into the house. Trap-Jaw,
Triclops and Beast-Man
didn't fare any better than
Skeletor. Boy howdy, after I
got the bleeding stopped, I
asked those guys where this
He-Man and crew came
from they said, "It's a
cartoon, Dad". A cartoon! I
had been beat up, destroyed,
and sent to another planet
because of a cartoon. Listen,
I know about cartoons, used
to watch them some myself
growing up, so I start telling
them about Mighty Mouse,
Heckle and Jeckle, and my
favorite, the Road Runner.
Now that Road Runner and
Wiley Coyote were real peo-
ple. And they could entertain
without all that violence. Of
course Wiley would fall off a
cliff ever now and then, and
he'd get blown up a time or
two during each show, and
he was always getting run
over by a Mack truck, but I
wouldn't really call that
violence ....
Well, the boys couldn't
really get into Mighty Mouse
so I promised them next Sat-
urday morning I'd watch
Tennessee Tuxedo (I like the
title, but I understand it's
about a penguin), Dungeons
and Dragons, Spider Man
and Saturday Supercade
with them. As you might well
expect, I can hardly wait.
It's kind'a the same thing
when we sit down at nightto
play a nice quiet game
before bedtime. I'll say how
about a game of Chinese
checkers or dominoes. They
give me that "2 bricks shy"
look and say how about a
game of Connect Four. You
ever play that game? I can't
even connect three and it
gets embarrassing to loose
three out of four to a five
year old. I never have beaten
Josh. And after whipping me
good in Connect Four then
they want to play something
called Candyland or Shoots
and Ladders. Those don't
seem like real games to me.
But if I can ever get them to
sit down with me to a real
game like Chinese checkers,
well then, boys, I got 'em.
Now I don't believe in that
generation gap theory, nor
do I feel we have a failure to
communicate the boys
hayv just got to understand
about the Lone Ranger, Red
Ryder, Randolph Scott,
Whip Wilson and Chinese
checkers. I mean when some
of their friends .come over I
don't want to have to say,
"Come in, Josh and Jess are
back in the bedroom playing
I think the whole problem
got started because of the
breakfast cereals.
Remember when all we had
was Corn Flakes, Cheerios
and Raisin Bran? Now
they've got Fruit Loops,
Frank'n'berry, Chocolate
covered Coca-Puffs, Pac
Man ceral, Strawberry
Shortcake, Mr. "T" cereal..

Life just seems a mite too
complicated now-a-days for

That creek is the place that
yours truly tried his first dive
from the roadway and nearly
broke his foot when he didn't
- make it far enough out and
his foot hit a rock. And it was
also the place I was walking
home from one day when
someone threw a beer bottle
at me from a passing car.
The bottle barely missed my
head, and if it hadn't, you
wouldn't be reading this nor
would I have had the plea-
sure of writing it.
Carpenter's Creek is just a
creek now, nothing more.
The swimming' hole is gone.
There will be no more bodies
flung from the roadway or
bridge into the deep, dark
water below. The memories,
however, linger on...summer
days and swimming' holes.

value of the marijuana was
estimated at approximately
$600. Sheriff Ken Murphy
said he expects more arrests
to be made in the incident.

Series of Gospel Services

Set at Church of Christ

The Church of Christ at
20th and Marvin would like to
extend an invitation to the
public to hear a series of
gospel se mons by Bro. Phil-
lip Hines. The Gospel Meet-
ing will be September 13-17 at
7:30 p.m., Thursday through
Saturday, and the regular
times on Sunday, 10:00 a.m.
for Bible Study, 11:00 a.m.
for preaching, and 7:00 p.m.
for evening services.
Bro. Phillip Hines preach-
es regularly for the Hartselle
Church of Christ in Hartselle,
Alabama. He began preach-
ing at the age of 13 on a
part-time basis. After gradu-
ating from high school, he
attended International Bible
College in Florence, Ala-

bama where he earned a
Bachelor of Sacred Litera-
ture Degree in 1976. While in
college, he served as the

part-time minister and youth
director of the Leighton
Church of Christ in Leighton,
Ala. Upon graduation from
college, he became their
full-time minister.
The Lord has greatly bless-
ed his ministry at Harselle,
Alabama. The church there
has seen significant growth
in the last four years. Bro.
Hines has a radio program
called "Five Gospel Min-
utes" in Hartselle which is
broadcast daily, and another
called "Just A Minute"
which is broadcast five-eight
times each day. He writes a
weekly column in the local
paper, "The Hartselle En-
quirer". He conducts two to
three Gospel Meetings each
year, and speaks regularly at
youth gatherings. He is local
team leader of the "Lads to
Leaders" program, and was
selected as "Outstanding
Man of America" in 1983.

Christ would. like to invite
everyone to hear God's truth,
explained in simplicity by
Bro. Hines, and to know why
the Church of Christ" is
dedicated to restoring New
Testament Christianity in
Port St. Joe. This would be a
good opportunity to find out
what the churches of Chiist
teach and why.

SCM Corporation's Jack-
sonville-based Organic
Chemicals reported a profit
for the fiscal year ended June
30, compared with a large
loss for fiscal 1983.
Organic Chemicals in-
cludes Aroma & Flavor
chemicals, the world leader
in terpene chemistry; Sylva-
cham, a producer of per-
formance chemicals based
on crude tall oil; and Special-
ty Chemicals, a producer of
organoflourine and organo-
silicon chemicals.
While all three units im-
proved in fiscal 1984, Sylva-
chem had record operating
income on increased sales.
Specialty Chemicals' im-
provement was due to lower
raw material costs and in-
creased sales.
SCM Chemicals, of which
Organic Chemicals is a part,
reported record operating
profits for the year. Pig-
ments, the largest part of
SCM Chemicals, had im-
proved operating income
even though on average,
prices were lower during
fiscal 1984 than for the
previous year.
SCM Chemicals had record
operating income of $36.9
million, up from $15.1 million
for fiscal 1983. Sales were
$360.7 million, up from $250.6
million for fiscal 1983.
In New York, SCM Cor-
poration reported substan-
tially higher net income for
the fiscal fourth quarter and
year ended June 30, reflect-
ing record results from Coat-
ings & Resins and Chemicals
and a strong improvement
from Paper Products.
For the year, income from
continuing- operations in-
creased 58.3 per cent to $41.7
million, or $4.24 a share, up
from $26.3 million or $2.74 a
share for fiscal 1983. Net
income for fiscal 1983 was
$24.5 million, or $2.55 a share
and included income from
discontinued operations
(Proctor-Silex Appliances)
of $3.9 million, or 41 cents a
share, and a charge of $5.8
million, or 60 cents a share,
from the sale of Proctor-
Sales for the year were
$1.96 billion, up 18 per cent
from $1.66 billion for fiscal
For the fourth quarter,
income from continuing op-
erations was up 84 per cent to
$15.9 million, or $1.61 a share
from $8.6 million, or 89 cents
a share for the previous year.
Net income for the fourth
quarter increased nearly
fourfold to $15.9 million from
$4.4 million in fiscal 1983.
Fourth quarter sales were
$536.4 million, up from $445.5
million for the previous year.
Glidden Coatings & Resins,
SCM's largest business, was
the leading profit contributor
for the year as all parts of
this business had improved
results. Operating income
Was up 40 per cent to $51.4
million from $36.7 million for
fiscal 1983. Sales were $654.6
million, up from $575.8 milli-
on the previous year. Chemi-
cal Coatings and Latin
America results were 'im-
proved over the year ago.
Gains in Chemical Coatings
reflected a long-term re-
search and development pro-
gram which has produced a
series of successful new
Allied Paper had operating
income of $21.0 million, up
from $315.9 million for the '
previous year. The improve-
ment in operating income
reflected gains in pulp and
paper, which more than
offset a decline 'in business
Operating income for

down from a record $28.6
million the previous year.
Sales were $393.3 million, up
from $354.8 million for the
previous year. After three
consecutive years of record
profits, Durkee Famous
Foods (Consumer) had lower
operating income on record
sales last year. The lower
results were due to the
inability to pass along com-
pletely the higher prices for
raw materials and to in-
creased marketing costs in a
very competitive environ-
Durkee Foods (Industrial
and Foodservice) was mar-
ginally profitable on subtan-
tially higher sales last year.
The profit decline was due to
increased competition and,
in particular, to Durkee's
inability to pass along quick-
ly enough a sharp rise in the
price of soybean oil, the
group's most important raw
Smith-Corona continued
unprofitable. The operating
loss last year was $15.9
million compared to $11.6
million for the previous year.
Sales increased to $198.5
million from $164.3 million
for fiscal 1983. The increased
loss was due in large part to
closeouts of older models at
reduced prices and to prices
that were lowered on other

models to meet strong com-
petitive pressures from im-
ported typewriters. Also con-
tributing to Smith-Corona's
widened losses were high
costs for several electronic
models introduced in fiscal
1983. Late in fiscal 1984,
Smith-Corona introduced a
line of lower cost electronic
typewriters produced at the
Cortland, New York factory.
"Our businesses in general
showed improvement in fis-
cal 1984 as the economy
strengthened," Paul H. Elic-
ker, chairman and president,
said. "Assuming a strong
economy continues in fiscal
1985, SCM's earnings should
improve again as all our
major businesses should bet-
ter their performances. -In
particular, we anticipate
good gains in Paper Products
as we have a full year of
firmer pulp prices. Chemi-
cals should be ahead on the
continued strength in titani-
um dioxide. Foods should
rebound. Coatings & Resins
will do well, but its gains
cannot reasonably be expect-
ed to be as dramatic as last
year's. Smith-Corona will be
unprofitable, but the loss
should be reduced. Overall,
we are optimistic that fiscal
1985 will be another good
year for SCM," Mr. Elicker

Roy Carter Is "An Old-

Fashioned County Agent"

Extension Agent, Roy Lee
Carter introduced himself as
just "an old fashioned county
.agent" as he spoke to the
Kiwanis Club Tuesday. Car-
ter told the group that the
Extension Service originated
in Florida in 1862, with the
land grant colleges, Univer-
sity of Florida and Florida
A&M universities operating
the government program
which was designed to intro-,
duce more efficient farming
methods to the nation's far-
Today, in Gulf County,
Carter said his duties consist.
of giving advice, on the,
proper use of insecticides,
herbicides and fertilizers. "If
I don't know the answer.to a
farmer's problems, I can get
it in a hurry from either
University of Florida or
Florida A&M agricultural
experts", he said.
A few years past, most of
the Extension Agent's job in
Gulf County was taken up
with forestry, bee and orna-
mental shrubbery problems.
Now, with a growing agricul-
tural presence in the county,
the agent's duties are being
expanded to include prob-
lems with wheat, rice, soy-
beans, blueberries and pe-
"A farmer has a hard time
making it growing small
grains here in Gulf County",
Carter said. "He has to be
able to grow two crops a year
in order to make a living".
Carter said the reason for
'this was because of low
yields from the type soil
which covers most of the
The agent said "Average
yields in the county are from
24 to 34 bushels per acre,
depending on the grain being
grown and the strain".
The agent said recent
plantings of blueberries by
FICO Farms has a definite
promise of better times
ahead for growers. "If we
can generate a market for
the berries, they should do
well, because blueberries

love the kind of soil we have
in Gulf County.
Another growing crop in
Gulf County is the production
of beef cattle. "All farming
operations are marginal now

because of the depressed
prices for farm products.
American farmers have the
capacity to grow far more

Port St. Joe Defeats

Vernon 27-0

Sharks Start Season with Victory

Port St. Joe's Sharks ran
up 302 yards of offense on the
ground and 49 yards through
the air as they won an
impressive 27-0 victory over
the Vernon Yellow Jackets.
The Sharks did most of
their damage in the first half,
using younger players for
much of the second half,
scoring in every period ex-
cept the last.
About the most exciting
thing about the last quarter
was the hapless grass snake
which found itself in the'
middle of a crowd in the
higher grass which grew at
the base of the fence which
surrounded the playing field.
The Sharks kept possession
of the ball for the entire first

period, with the exception of
one series of downs. During
this series, the Jackets ran
three plays and kept the ball
a little more than a minute
and a half.
The Sharks put their first
score of the season on the
board with six and a half
minutes gone in the first
period, when Michael Pitt-
man scored on a one yard
plunge. The touchdown was
set up by a 13 yard pass play
from quarterback Chris
Butts to STari Peters on the
Vernon 15 yard line. Pittman
and Josh Jenkins then work-
ed the ball down to the one,
where Pittman carried it
- The try for two extra points

failed, leaving the Sharks
with a six point margin.
On the first play of the
second period, quarterback
Chris Butts came around the
left side and ran through a
pocket of defenders to score
from 13 yards out. Pittman
carried the two point conver-
sion over and the Sharks had
a 14-0 lead.
\The Jackets mounted their
best drive of the night after
the score, carrying the ball
deep into Shark territory
before Robert Harris picked
off a Don Brown pass on the
Shark five yard line and
brought the crowd to its feet
as he picked his way back to
the 18. Pittman then broke'
loose with a 32 yard gallop

Premium Cap on

Vets' Insurance

A recent policy change
announced by VA Adminis-
trator, Harry N. Walters, will
cap premium rates of Na-
tional Service Life Insurance
term policy holders at the
age 70 rate.
As of September 1, 1984,
any veteran renewing an
active NSLI term insurance
policy after age 70 will have
the monthly premium per-
manently capped at $6.18 per
$1000 of insurance. For those
veterans who renewed their
policies at age 71 or beyond,
premiums will be rolled back
to the age 70 rate effective
September 1, 1984.
Approximately one out of
every three veterans who
still carry their insurance
initially chose the term plan
in lieu of a permanent plan
because it offers lower rates
for younger veterans. How-
ever, the term insurance
increases at each five-year
renewal and, by the time a
veteran *policyholder is 70
and beyond, the costs are
quite burdensome.
The VA is able to take this
action, which involves no
cost to the taxpayer, because

Club Meeting
The quarterback club will
hold its regular monthly
meeting Monday night at
7:30 p.m.
The meeting will be held in
the Commons Area of the
high school..
Everyone interested in the
promotion of local high
school sports are urged to

of several factors: (1) veter-
ans are living longer and are
paying premiums for a long-
er period of time than was
expected when the rates
were set in the 1940's; (2)
earnings from the reserves in
the trust fund have been
higher than expected; (3)
dividends normally paid to
policyholders whose premi-
ums will now be capped can
be used to cover additional
costs which may result from
freezing the rates to age 70.'
If you have any questions,
call your nearest VA office

The Port St. Joe defense was awesome Friday night. Above Shark Tommy Johnson has
Raymond Johns, the Vernon ball carrier in a bear hug as Stan Peters (33) and Doug Robin-
son (42) converge for the assists.,

and Jenkins ran for nine
before Butts put the ball into
scoring position with a 13
yard scamper.
With the ball on the 28 yard
line, Butts connected with
Stanley Peters with a scoring
strike and Jenkins kicked the
extra point to give the Sharks
a 21-0 lead >at half time.
The Sharks wound down
their scoring in the third
period, when Michael Pitt-
man scored from six yards
out, capping a five minute
drive which saw the Sharks
move from the Shark 32 yard
line. Jenkins kicked the extra
point, giving the Sharks their
27-0 win to open the season.
The Sharks scored again in
the final period, when Pitt-
man went down the sidelines
for 40 yards, but the ball was
called back by a Shark clip.
Michael Pittman finished
the night as the Sharks'
leading ground gainer with
118 yards on 18 carries and
two touchdowns.
Josh Jenkins, the second
member of the Shark one two
ground punch, had 79 yards
gained on 15 carries. Quar-
terback Butts ran for 46
yards on six attempts.
Pittman also caught two
passes for 37 yards.
The Shark defense was led
by Sidney Harris with eight
tackles and two assists.
Tommy Johnson had four
tackles and three assists.
Jim Norton, Richard Jack-
son, Michael Quinn and Chris
Butts each had three tackles.

Gators Make Easy Prey

of Apalachicola Sharks

After a sluggish start last
Friday night, the Wewa-
hitchka Gators came to life in
the second half and snapped
up aneasy 35-6 wih from the
Apalachicola Sharks.
Playing under fiew coach
Dennis Kizziah, the Gators
produced 225 yards of offense
and held the Sharks scoreless
in the second half.
Apalachicola jumped on
the scoreboard first, in the
first quarter, when Stanley
McIntyre scooped in a 65
yard scoring pass from Ter-
rence Walker to take the six
point lead. Later in the
opening stanza, the Gators
got on the (board when. Gary
Atkinson tackled Shark quar-
terback Williams in the end

zone for a safety and two
points for the Gators.
In the third period, the.
Gators got on the board twige
same man carrying the ball,
in the third period. Roy
Myers plunged across the
goal line from the two yard
line for a six-pointer. The
run for the extra point try
failed. On the very next
offensive series, Myers again
bulled over from the same
spot on the field for six more
points. Again, the extra point
run was no good.
In the last period, Brooke
Wooten intercepted a Shark
pass and scampered back for
35 yards and the score. The
try for two extra points was
no good.
As the game was winding
down, Terry Harrelson put
the final points up for the
Gators on a five yard scoring

run, with Myers kicking the
extra point.
, The Gator offense generat-
ed a total of 225 yprds for the;
evening and held the Sharks
to minus yardage for the rest
of the game after their 65
yard scoring strike in the
first period.
Ed Baxley paced the Ga-
tors with his 75 yards gained,
while Roy Myers added 51
yards and three touchdowns.
Jerry Adkinson led the Gator
defense with 11 tackles, five
assists, a blocked punt and
the tackle which produced
the safety.
Mark Pridgeon, a veteran
senior lineman, received a
broken arm in the game,
which will sideline him for
the remainder of the season.
Friday night, the Gators
will host Carrabelle.

Social Security #

Is Lifetime Key

A person's Social Security
number is the key to his or
her lifetime protection under
Social Security, Ann R. Ki-
nard, Social Security field
representative for Gulf Coun-
ty, said recently.
All earnings that a person
has over his or her working
lifetime are recorded under
that number. If an incorrect
number is used, that person
may not get proper credit for
all earnings.
People should always take
their Social Security card
with them when they get a
new job and make sure that
their employer copies the
number just as it is shown on
the card.
People should keep a re-
cord of their number in a safe
place. Then, if the original
card is lost, a new card with
the same number can be
obtained easier than if the
number were not known.

quests bids on STREET PAVING

Also, a person applying for
a replacement Social Securi-
ty card will have to provide
documentary evidence of
identity. A person born; out-
side the U. S. needs evidence
of current U. S. citizenship or
legal alien status.
If a person ever becomes
aware that he or she ,has
more than one Social Securi-
ty number, the individual
should contact any Social
Security office right away.
The people there will help get
the situation cleared up so
that the numbers are cross-
referred and the person gets
full credit for all earnings.
It is against the law for a
person to use someone else's
number. It is also against the
law to give false information
when getting a number,
Penalties include a fine or
jail sentence or both.
It is a good idea for a
person to check his or her
Social Security record every
three years or so to make
sure that earnings are being
correctly reported. This is
especially true if a person
changes jobs often.
Postcard Form SSA 7004 is
available for this purpose
and can be obtained at any

Pd. Pol. Adv.

as blind cave fish, which
thrive in perpetual darkness,
plants are extremely light
dependent. Without adequate
light, they cannot manufac-
ture food. Thus, light is one of
the most vital factors in plant
health, especially when try-
ing to raise plants indoors.
The most difficult element
to control in house plant
culture are temperature, hu-
midity, and light- with light
leading the list. In fact, poor
lighting is the most common
cause of house plant failure.
My information for this arti-
cle was provided by Exten-
sion Horticulturist Dr.
Robert Black.
The light requirements of
various species of plants
vary drastically. The vari-
ables of light intensity, quali-

ty and duration affect differ-
ent plants in different ways.
All three factors must be
considered when deter-
mining appropriate light con-
ditions for specific types of
house plants.
Light intensity refers to the
brightness of the area where
the plant is placed. General-
ly, a low light condition
occurs about eight feet from
a window, where a plant
receives no direct light. A
medium light condition oc-
curs in a well lit room, where
a plant is between four and
eight feet from a window.
High light areas of a house
are the brightly lit place
within three feet of any
&auth- ,east-or .westwindow,
Most indoor plants need at
least medium light. Many
require high light conditions
to look their best. A few
plants will do well in low light
areas. These include many of
the native tropical plants
which will actually "sun-
burn" if they're exposed to
high light intensities.
Light quality involves
wave length, or the color of
light a plant receives. Plants
can use natural light from
the sun, or artificial light
from fluorescent, incandes-
cent, or special "grow light"
bulbs. Although sunlight is
the best source of light for
plants, artificial light can be
used very successfully to
meet the needs of plants
grown indoors. Plants use
two wave lengths, or colors,
of light for growth- red and
blue. Fluorescent tubes give
off- blue light, incandescent.
* bulbs give off red, and
grow-lights produce both
colors when growing plants
under artificial light. Either
a combination of fluorescent
and incandescent lights, or
grow-lights alone will usually
give good results.
Duration of exposure- the
total amount of time a plant
receives light- is another
important factor. If a plant
doesn't receive enough na-
tural light, artificial light
sources can provide the
additional light necessary for
the plant's best growth. It's
difficult to provide indoor
light intensities as high as
those under which a plant
would 'grow best naturally.
But it is possible to compen-

One trip has already been

sate for this by increasing the
light duration by exposing a
plant to artificial light for
longer periods of time.
In summary, most plants
are very light sensitive. They
do best when they're given
exactly the right amount of
intensity, and type of light
they need. Definite light
requirements have been es-
tablished for a wide variety
of plants. You'll be more
successful with indoor plants
if you find out what these
requirements are for the
plants you're trying to grow.

Concerned About Our Drug Problems in Gulf County."
The article was published Aug. 23, 1984. This was writ-
ten to explain to the people of Gulf County that did not
know me, that I have always been sincerely concerned
about our drug problems. In no way did I intend to
disgrace our school system of which my wife is a full-
time employee. The facts were I had arrested a science
teacher at Wewahitchka High. School, and a Counselor
at Port St. Joe High School for felony drug charges. The
counselor at Port St. Joe worked every day at the high
school with your kids but she was employed by the Gulf
County Guidance Clinic. Both were removed from our
schools. Again I want to explain that in no way was this
intended to disgrace the fine people employed in our
schools. The article was intended to let the people know
I am concerned and I would enforce the drug laws no
matter who is involved.

Congress has returned for a
hectic month prior to adjourn-
ment for the November elec-
tions. We have yet to settle on
a budget for the fiscal year
which begins October 1, and
several important appropria-
01. tions bills have not been
enacted into law. I am also
hopeful- that the House of
Representatives will have the
opportunity to vote on a con-
stitutional amendment .to re-
quire a balanced federal budget
and a constitutional amendment
to permit voluntary prayer in the
public schools.
Time is short and, of
necessity, we must pass the ap-
propriations bills for the coming
fiscal year. The House has pass-
ed most of the bills which are
now bottled up in the Senate.
I am pleased to be able to report
that we have held the line on
spending and the bills are in
conformity with the President's
budget requests and, in some
instances below the dollar
figures he recommended. We
are clearly making progress in
our drive to lower spending.

In the very near future, the
House of Representatives will
take final action on H.R. 9, the
Florida Wilderness Act, legisla-
tion I introduced to expand
wilderness areas in Florida's

You, the concerned residents and parents of Gulf County,
by your vote last Tuesday gave your clear mandate for con-

continue to guide my administration of your
Superintendent's office.
The high goals of our school system are best achieved
when we all join together and at this time I would extend to
both my opponents and their supporters an invitation to join
us in our continued push for excellence in our educational
Your overwhelming support of my candidacy deeply
moves and gratifies me. Concern for Gulf County's children
continues to be the foundation of my administration. Your
support and prayers are still needed and appreciated.

To All Citizens of Gulf County
I am Eldridge Money, seeking re-election to the office
of County Commissioner of District Five.
I want to thank you all for your vote and support in
the First Primary and also ask for your vote and support
on October 2nd.
I also want to ask those who voted for Mr. Al Ray, Mr.
John Core and Mr. Pollock, to vote for me this time, to
help me to win the victory on October 2nd. Your vote will
be greatly appreciated.
I also thank those of my friends and family that work-
ed so hard for me during the past weeks, and I need your
continued help, in order to win the victory, October 2nd.

Thank You and May God Bless You.

I first introduced this bill in
1974 and it has passed the
House of Representatives three
separate times. The Senate has
now given final approval and
President Reagan has indicated
that he will sign the measure in-

Providing for more

agreed to by the Forest Service,
environmentalists and forest

While there has been no mining
in the Osceola, I was concern-
ed with the prospect of mining
in the forest and believe we
must take this action to
preserve our forest for genera-
tions yet to come. Phosphate
mining on private land'has been
a good business in Florida and
the companies have made great
strides in reclaiming the land. I

Once again a Soviet leader
is among the missing. President
Konstantin Chernenko has not
been seen in several months
leading to speculation that the
72-year-old leader is in poor
health. He was notably absent
during the closing ceremonies
of the "Friendship Games,"
Moscow's answer to the Olym-
pics, and diplomatic experts
believe he would have been pre-
sent if his health permitted it.
The constant worry over
who exactly is running the
Soviet Union makes arms
negotiations and all other con-
tacts very difficult. You cannot
deal with a government whose
leader may be gravely ill and we
have had to face this problem
several times in recent years in
our dealings with the Russians.
Chernenko must make a
public appearance soon or
speculation will continue to
grow that he is no longer in

all of my good friends from Port St. Joe and
Gulf County who gave me their support and
vote in the first primary.

We're continuing to visit around, and I
appreciate all of Mr. Billy Davis' backers
whoare giving me their support. While
visiting, I'm listening and learning, and I
look forward to a chance to represent the
people's views.
One point, that I want to continue to
stress, is that my years of experience in
heavy equipment will be a great asset to
our county government. I'm self-
employed, and, when needed, I'll be
Secondly, and even of greater
importance, we all need to work together
to create a climate of progress so that our
sons and daughters can find jobs and
raise their children here.
Once again, I'd like to give my thanks
for the ground-swell of grassroot support.
If I am fortunate enough to be selected by
the voters in October, then you can be
assured that A. B. Traylor will be in there
