Dirt Policy Questioned'


Questions Controls Over Disappearing Soil


Leon Pollock, a candidate
for County Commission in the
first primary election ap-
proached the County Cpm-
mission Tuesday night with
the question, "What is your
policy toward hauling dirt in
Gulf County?"
Pollock said he observed
during the campaign that the
county would haul dirt- to


place on the county right-of-
way "and before the county
can get a machine in and get
it spread, people have taken
part of it for private use.
What procedure do you have
to combat such a practice? I
can see where this costs the
county a good deal of money
during a year".
Pollock said he was aware


v Gulf Kids Don't


Commit the Crimes
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement
gave its annual summary of the crime picture for the
,past year to all Florida counties last week, with state
crime, reports showing a slight increase state-wide.
Here in Gulf County, the trend was opposite that of
the state, with a reduction of some 13 percent reported
in Gulf County crime through June 30 of 1983. The
reporting period was from January 1, 1983 through
June 30 of the same year.
There were no murders or rapes reported in the'
county during the report period and only two robberies,
with a reported value stolen of $180.00.
Sheriff Ken Murphy said the next report won't be
so good "because during that period, we had the rape
charge filed in Wewahitchka and the Wednesday
afternoon robberies here in Port St. Joe".
Practically all of the Gulf County crime was of the
aggravated assault and breaking and entering
variety, A total of 25 assaults were reported of all
kinds4 The report shows there were 47 reported cases of
breaking and entering, 70 reports of larceny, which is
thefts pf $200 and under, and eight motor vehicle thefts,
including one auto.
Oddly enough, of some 175 crimes of all sizes and
descriptions, only 13 were committed by juveniles.

the dirt wasn't being hauled
for private use and that the
Commission did not condone
the practice of private in-
dividuals taking the dirt
when they weren't supposed
to. "As a matter of fact, I
have talked to some of you
and you would like to get out
of this .problem". Pollock
was askingithe question as to
what county policy was in
. placing dirt:-: : :..
Chairman Owens, said it
was a county policy to both
keep entrances to drive-ways
repaired where they were on
public road right-of-way and
it was also county policy not
to haul dirt for private use.
"However, we can't put a
machine on the ground to
spread a load of dirt right
after we dump every load,
either. While the dirt is
awaiting the arrival of a
machine to spread it, some of
it is taken, but there isn't
much we can do about that.'
All the Commissioners,
with the exception of Jim
Gortman, who was absent
Tuesday night, said thecoun-
ty has the responsibility to
keep up entrances to drive-
ways off public right of ways
and they will continue to do
so.
Pollock said he felt some
sort of change in policy
should be implemented to
keep public dirt out of private
hands. "We have people in
the county who make their
living hauling dirt to private
individuals and it isn't the.
responsiity of the taxpayer


to pay for hauling it and
providing it."
Pollock said his only com-
plaint is that dirt is dumped
on county property and left
and is taken onto private
property and used.
OIHER BUSINESS
In other business matters,
the Commission:
-Passed a resolution ask-
ing the state of Florida' to
assume autopsy charges' in-
curred by autopsies required
by state agencies and by
private families when they
were made for insurance
purposes.
-Agreed to sign an agree-
ment with the Medical Ex-
aminer, Di. Syfret to provide
the service for Gulf County
during the coming, fiscal
year.
-Were notified by attor-
ney William J. Rish 'that
Secretary of Transportation,
Allen Potter, would be in
Port St. Joe in a few days to
personally observe the prob-
lem with railroad crossings.
-Heard a report that the
Workman's Compensation
insurance for the county is
getting into a dangerous
situation. Chairman Owens
said he had been notified the
county had a loss ratio of
some 317 percent; The county
has paid premiums of $45,000
and has a loss experience of
$117,000.
-The Commission advised
building inspector Dewayne
Manuel Florida Power Cor-
poration also needed permits
to put in buried cable so the
location could be recorded.


The southern portion of Gulf
County has a little morethan 10 days
remaining to receive free ambulance
service and after that time, charges
will be made for the service,
according to action taken by the Gulf
County Commission Tuesday night..
In addition, service for the Mexico
Beach area will come out of Bay
county rather than utilize the closer,
more handy Gulf county service after
that date.'
In anticipation of the charges
being levied to help off-set part of the
expense of operating a paid squad, the
County Commission wrote the Bay
County Commission and asked them
for a contribution to help with
expenses. In a letter back to Gulf
county, the Bay Commission refused
to participate, saying they could not
subsidize the Mexico Beach service
any more than they could for any
other portion of Bay county. The letter
pointed out the people of Mexico'
Beach could call on the Bay county
ambulance service and pay the Bay
county charges.
CHARGE SCHEDULE
In the meantime, the Gulf County
Commission has come up with a
tentative charge schedule to be

applied to the ambulance service.
Ever since the service was instituted
some 10 years ago, it has operated
strictly with volunteer technicians
and has made no charge to patients
needing the attention.
Tuesday night, chairman Everett
Owenssuggested the county initiate
charges of $50.00 within the south Gulf
operating scope for a trip to Gulf
Pines Hospital. A trip to a Panama
City hospital would be $100 and to
Tallahassee, $150. All of these charges
would have an additional charge
made, at cost, for any supplies or
extra services provided the patient
during the trip.
Since the service is now operated
by paid personnel, trips beyond the
county to distant hospitals are'poss-
ible for patients from both ends of the
county at'a charge of $2,00 per mile,
plus a $50.00 pick-up fee.
Owens said the charges were
arrived at by taking an average of
other services operating in the area
and may be either reduced or
increased as experience shows the
need.
Commissioner Doug Birmingham
offered the only objection to the plan


to cut Mexico Beach off from the local
service. "I would hate for a child to
get run over just across the county
line and us refuse to serve his needs
just because he happens to live across*
the line. We read all the time about
fire departments getting into these
problems and I would hate for us to be
involved in such a situation."
Attorney JUsh said it wasn't as if
Mexico Beach would be without
ambulance service. "Bay County will
have to provide it by law. They have
refused to participate with Gulf
county in continuing the service so our;
only responsibility is to give thel
people ample notice before their
change is made in case Mexico Beach,
wants to make arrangements on itsF
own."
At first, the Commission was!
planning to make the change on:
October 1, but attorney Rish suggest-'
ed the county continue under the'
present operation until October 10 in,
order to give ample time for Mexico.
Beach to adjust to the change.
During the time between now and
October 10, the Commission will be
preparing an ordinance to cover the
new operating procedure and the
charge schedule.

Management Practices of duPont


Trustees Is
A state appeal court last week
found in favor of the trustees' and
their manner of management of the
Alfred I. duPont .estate, effectively
striking down challenges to the
manner in which the estate has been
handled by its present trustees. The
estate, which is the principal owner of
the St. Joe Paper Company, -St.
Joseph Telephone and Telegraph
Company, the Apalachicola Northern
Railroad and the Florida East Coast
Railroad, uses its profits to benefit
crippled children and the elderly. '
The First District Court of
Appeal, in a 3-0 decision, upheld a
lower court's ruling against the states
of Delaware and Florida, which is
seeking to remove some of the
trustees from their positions.
The will of duPont provided for
the creation of a perpetual charitable
trust to fund the Nemours Foundation,
a' non-profit Florida corporation.
Nemours is a charitable institution for
the care and treatment of crippled
children and the elderly in Florida
and Delaware in two hospitals owned
by the foundation.
Under an agreement, the trust
wasto pay at least three percent of its
assets to benefit the elderly and


Approved

crippled children or all its net income,
whichever was greater.
Attorneys for Delaware and Flor-
ida claimed the trustees had not
protected the rights of crippled
children and the elderly and had not
lived up to the settlement agreement
to maximize trust income for the
beneficiaries.
In addition, the states claimed the
three targeted trustees had conflicts
ofinterest because they hold positions
with 'the companies included in the
trust's assets.
The current trustees are J. C.
Belin, W. L. Thornton, Tom S.
Coldewey and Alfred duPont Dent,
duPont's grandson, who also serve as
directors and officers of St. Joe Paper
one of its subsidiaries.
Dent has long sided with. the
movement to sell off St. Joe's assets
under the theory the assets could earn
more for the beneficiaries of the trust
in this manner. Belin and Coldewey,
both of Port St. Joe and Thornton, of
Jacksonville, have strongly opposed
the attempt to break up the industrial
complex, claiming the firm can better
finance the charitable programs into
the future under its present set-up.
The major issue in the suit was


by Court
the value of the St. Joe Paper
Company. The trust's 75 percent
ownership of St. Joe is its largest
asset, and the state's claim the
company wasn't making enough
money and could have been more
productive, thereby generating more
for the trust.
In 1982, Judge Lawrence Fay
ruled against the states and now, the
appeal court has upheld that ruling,
saying the. trustees have not abused
their discretion.
The court's opinion said, in part:
"The record contains competent
substantial evidence which supports
the trial court's conclusion that the
trustees were working to raise the
productivity of the trust".
The court went on to say, "There
is no evidence that the trustees took
advantage of their positions and
control of St. Joe to install themselves
as officers or to benefit themselves
personally."
Attorneys for the trustees had
argued that there would be nothing
left for beneficiaries by the end of the
century if Florida and Delaware
received as much money as they
sought on behalf of crippled children
and elderly.


Election Day


Voters Have Choices to Make In Four

Contests; High Turn-Out Is Expected


Four questions will face Gulf
County's 7,400-plus voters next
Tuesday, as they trek to the polls in
the second round of voting.
Only Democratic candidates
will be listed on the ballot, as there
were no Republican candidates who
were facing a run-off election after
the first primary.
Heading up the ballot and
generating the most interest county-
wide is the red-hot race for Sheriff.
Incumbent Sheriff Ken Murphy
made it into a run-off situation with
challenger Al Harrison by only two
votes when the dust finally settled
from the first primary earlier in
September. Both Murphy and Har-
rison have succeeded in generating
considerable interest in their race
and it should be the star attraction
for Tuesday's run-off.
While it hasn't stirred up quite
the interest the Sheriff's race has,
the run-off contest for Clerk of the
Circuit Court has been responsible
for quite a bit of activity also. The


winner in the run-off between
Wyvonne Griffin Hattaway and Joe
St. Clair will face incumbent Jerry
Gates in the November general
election. Gates shifted his registra-
tion to Republican before the
primaries started because of a
disagreement with the chairman of
the Gulf County Democratic Com-
mittee. Gates felt he would be
running under a tremendous handi-
cap considering his disagreement
with the party chairperson.
Moving along in the shadows
has been two races for County
Commission seats.
First, there is the usual shoot-
out between Leo Kennedy and
incumbent Eldridge Money for the
District One position. Kennedy and
Money have met each other at the
polls at least three times in the past
and in each instance it has been a
close contest.
In District Five, incumbent
Jimmy Gortman is challenged by
newcomer Armond "A.B." Traylor.


Gortman suffered a slight heart
attack in a Panama City hospital
last week while undergoing surgery
for removal of a kidney stone.
Gortman is expected to be released
from the hospital either today or
tomorrow.
Supervisor of Elections, Cora
Sue Robinson said it should be one of
the most exciting elections in
several years. "We're getting ready
for a large turn-out of voters next
Tuesday", she said.
The county voted 72.6 percent in
the first primary, for one of the
largest turnouts in county history.
For a complete sample ballot of
Tuesday's election, see page 13 of
this week's issue of The Star.
TOTE BOARD
The Port St. Joe Lions Club will
operate a "tote board" beginning at
7:00 p.m., the night of the election.
The board will be on display on the
west side of the City Hall and will
have up-to-date precinct counts as
they are turned in.

We Hope You Care



Enough to Vote


It has all come down to the
wire. After all this hustling and
bustling around since the middle of
July, it's time for you to make a
selection as to who will serve your
county in the various areas, of
5 responsibility on Tuesday of next
week. The only office which will not
be decided upon Tuesday is that of
Clerk of the Court, which will have
9 its final chapter included on the
9 November ballot.
The question we're sure'all the
candidates are wondering today
and will be wondering until next
9 Tuesday is, are you going to vote?
and, how are you going to vote?
: We can't see how anybody can
9 fail to go to the polls and pull the
lever for their candidate. We can't
9 imagine how anyone can have little
enough respect for the efforts put
out by the various candidates and
9 the responsibility which is ours, to
refuse to case a ballot.
t Voting should be second nature
to us when we have the opportun-
ity.
People who like to brag that "I
help pay the bill" are some of the
ones who do not take the time to
vote, so should keep their mouth
shut for four years.
Next, is how will you vote?
Under no circumstances will
we vote for a candidate simply on
the basis that he's a friend of ours.
We are laboring under the assump-
tion that all the candidates are
friends of ours (although recently,
with some of the things we have
learned, we are beginning to
wonder if that friendship is a
two-way situation).
We will cast our vote solely on
the basis of capability. We will be


concerned only with whether or not
the county will receive value paid
for from the public service we vote
to hire for office.
Under no circumstance will we
vote for a rank amateur. This is not
to say all non-incumbents are rank
amateurs. This is to say some
candidates who run for office have
no earthly idea of what the job
entails. This person won't get our
vote.
Not just anybody who claims to
be able, can make Gulf county an
able Sheriff, Clerk of the Court,
or county commissioner. It takes a
certain sense of capability and a
grasp of the job at hand.
Every person who comes to
. you telling you facts about the
various county offices doesn't
necessarily know what they are
talking about. We have heard
several subjects we knew they
knew nothing about. They were
basing their future actions on what
they had heard. Anybody who
would rely on what they have
"heard" has very flimsy proof for
their actions; be it the person
running for office, or the person
deciding whether or not to vote for
the candidate.
We have found that "what I
heard" is usually not factual at all.
As a matter of fact, it's usually
wrong.
We hope you care enough about
your county to vote come next
Tuesday. We hope you are con-
cerned enough about the future of
your county to take a little time to
check out so-called facts which are
thrown about like so many dande-
lions on the wind during these last
few days of campaign.


In a sports story, printed by
-one of the area daily newspapers
about 10 days ago, the paper had a
story concerning the woes of the
Vernon Yellow Jackets.
The Jacket coach, being inter-
viewed by the story writer, re-
marked: "We've played two real
good teams in Port st. Joe and
Graveville .,. Most high schools
won't go far against teams like
those. We went up against the
fourth-ranked team (Graceville) in
2A Friday night and Port St. Joe
ought to be (ranked) number one."
It was interesting to note the
Vernon coach didn't give a reason
or two why his Jackets lost to Port


St. Joe. He just said it was because
the Port St. Joe team was better
than they were. It was as simple as
that. There ARE teams which are
better than others.
Suggesting that Port St. Joe
should be number one sounds
mighty good to those faithful
legions of fans here in Port St. Joe
who follow the Sharks through
thick and thin, no matter where
they go.
It would be a treat this year to
follow the team right on up to the
state championship. We hope the
Vernon coach's assessment of the
Sharks is correct.


From Bangor to Yakima


By Kesley (Stay at Home)
Colbert ,
You know, when I took this
job six or seven months ago I
understood that the salary
wasn't much, but I was
guaranteed that I'd be com-
pensated with adventure, ex-
citement, mystery, intrigue
and travel. Well, living in the
same house with my oldest
son is about all the adventure
that I can stand. We've got a
whole new season of the
"A-Team" to look forward
to, and you can't ask for
more excitement than that-


can you?
As for mystery, hey, I get
that every night when I sit
down for supper trying to
figure out just exactly what it
is that we are eating. My wife
can come up with some off
the wall recipes to say the
least. You take that casserole
we had last night for instan-
ce- now the exact contents
of that dish would be a
mystery that ole Sherlock
Holmes could really sink his
teeth into.
As far as the intrigue goes,
I can't comment on that


'cause I don't even know
what the word means. So that
leaves travel.
I took this job so I could
travel. I guess one of the
reasons that I'm so interest-
ed in going somewhere is
because I've never had the
opportunity to see this great
land that we live in. I grew up
in a little place called Mc-
Kenzie, Tennessee. When I
was a senior in high school
we finally got a traffic light.
The city fathers got so
excited about that light that
they voted to pave the streets


the following year.
We never did take too
many trips. Although one
time my older brother did go
to Memphis- he came home
and told us that they built the
buildings straight up in the
city and that they had traffic
lights on every corner, and
that the people in theI city
stayed up all night. Sennn, I
didn't believe any of that.
Why would you want to build
something straight up and I
figured those people in Mem-
phis went to bed at 8:00 p.m.,
just like everyone else in the


Kesley Colbert
world.
The long and short of all of
this is since I didn't get to do
much traveling around when
I was younger, I am ready to
catch up on it now. Perry
White, Our editor-in-chief,
has got to come through and
send me on an assignment.
And I am talking a big trip
here. I mean I don't want to
go to Walnut Hill to cover a
Earnest Ward High School
football game....
We live in a great country
and we all need to see more
of it. I would love to see
Colorado first hand, and not
just catch a glimpse of it on a
John Denver special. I'd love
to set down at breakfast in a
little cafe in Wheat Ridge,
Colorado and eat my ham
and cheese omelet while
looking out over the Rockies.
Now all I've got to do is to
convince old Perry that
there's a news worthy story
about to break in Wheat
Ridge. You know I bet if we
hustled we could beat CNN
there.
Shucks, I don't have to go
to Wheat Ridge, I'd settle for
covering the annual chili
eating contest in Spearfish,
South Dakota. Wait a minute,
let me think about that for a
second- has it started snow-
ing in South Dakota yet?
They tell me the Yakima
Valley in the great state of
Washington is beautiful this
time of year. Or how about
the mountains around Row-
lesburg, West Virginia.
There ought to be some kind
of celebration in or around
Kearney, Nebraska that we
need to do a story on. Butte,
Montana, bless your heart,
you hang in there 'cause if a
story breaks there, we're
coming.
.You know, there's really
only a couple of very small
details that keep holding me
back from making these
trips. Looks like in fulfilling a
life timetime dream we wouldn't
let a couple of minor prob-
lems get in the way. But,
shucks, those two "little
details" have been getting in
the way for years.
That's why I'm working so
hard on our dear, sweet,
friendly, nice, kind lovable
editor to help me out just a
tad. One word (and a little
cash) from him and I'm on
my way. Wouldn't you enjoy
articles from Geronimo, Tex-
as or Silver Lake, Wisconsin
or Bangor, Maine or Gentry
City, Arkansas... About the
only place I don't want to

Somebody Keeps Adding More Steps to the Football Stadium


I CLIMBED THOSE steps at the
football stadium Friday night, all the
way to the top for the second time this
year, in order to do my thing from the
press box.
The view is good from that angle
and there are spotters all around to
call out the names of the ones making
the tackles and doing the running. It
makes the job of writing down notes to
tell about the football game, easier.
I am not a sports writer. I have
never been and I guess I will never be.
The finer points of the game escape
me. I recognize when a runner makes
yardage, or a pass is completed, or
someone makes a tackle. A block
escapes me. Or a player keeping an
opponent out of a play just passes me
on by. I don't realize what he is doing,
most of the time.
When points go up on the
scoreboard, I recognize that. More
and more, the finer points of the game
are invading my hard head and the
game, as a maneuvering type sport is
beginning to make sense to me.
However, I don't expect to be writing
the football game stories for too many
more years and I'm not sure if the


finesse part of the game will become
second nature to my comprehension
or not.
I confess I get engrossed in the
excitement of the play at times and


of the game I make up for in noticing
all the other things which are going on
at the stadium.
For instance; who keeps adding a
row or two of steps to the stairs which


ETAOI SHRDLU

By: WC


forget to notice who is doing what in
order to write it down in the story.
Reporting football for someone
who has never played or been coached
in the fine points of football takes
blood and sweat at times.
Then, I realize there are times
when you think I wasn't even there at
the game, although I try to keep this
type situation at a minimum.
+ ++++ p
WHAT I LACK IN comprehension


As the years went by, the advance
to the top took on a brisk walk, then a
moderate speed walk, then a slow
walk and graduated from a puffing
advance t a -"'awl and finally to the


esley R. Ramsey


lead to the press box every year?
If you make the full trip to the top
of the bleachers each and every game,
like I do, you know the stairs are
getting steeper and steeper, and
longer and longer as the years go by.
When the stadium was first built,
I could almost trot to the top with no
trouble. Just a hop, skip, and a jump,
and there I was at the top. It wasn't
even necessary to have a chair to sit
on while the game progressed.


present-day tactics for getting to the
top.
Today, when I start up the stairs
to the press box, I take a long hard
look up that stairway to the stars, and
I pick out two or three people I just
must stop and talk to -at strategic
points along the way. This allows me
to stop long enough to get my breath
and let my rubbery legs stiffen up a
bit to continue the climb.
It isn't that I'm out of shape or


getting old, or anything like that. I'm
still just as brisk as I was at age 20,
which was 20 or so years ago. My
breathing couldn't have lost its zip
over the years and I'm almost certain
my muscle tone is just as firm as ever.
The whole problem is that the
stairs are being added to and made
steeper as the years go by. I know this
is so, because I'm not the only one
making a complaint about the chang-
ing condition of the steps. Others who
go to the top at each and -every home
game can verify my complaint. You
see, I'm not the only one who has to
make plans for getting to his goal
before starting up the steps to the
press box at the top of the football
stadium.

IT HAS TO BE vandals who are
playing these tricks on us. I know
Principal Edwin Williams or football
coach Shaw Maddox wouldn't do this.
Just because Williams runs the show
and just because Maddox can run to
the top of the bleachers isn't any sign
the steps or height hasn't been
manipulated.


By the way, coach Maddox just
wants to show off when he goes
running up the bleachers. I happen to
know he needs oxygen when gets to
the top.
I know Williams wouldn't pull a
trick like that. Come to think of it, he
has stopped going to the top to sit. He
sits nearer the bottom, ostensibly to
"get a better view of how 'his kids' are
behaving themselves."
I know Williams wouldn't do that
because he made a trip to Alabama
two week ends ago and obtained his
year's supply of peanuts. Knowing I
love peanuts, and to keep me out of his
sack when he comes to the ballgame,
he sent me some. Anybody who would
send me peanuts wouldn't increase

Dear Gulf County Voter:
The main issue in this Sheriff's race seems to
be drugs. Sheriff Murphy's opponent has indi-
cated that he will, if elected, fight drugs. What will
he do about the calls that are received about
chickens in people's gardens, dogs fighting, hus-
band & wife fights, snakes in people's yards,
custody battles over children, children harassing
their neighbors, loud motorcycles, disputes over
boundary lines, people who don't pay their bills,
burglaries, thefts, bad check complaints, vandal-
ism, and the many other complaints by Gulf
County citizens. These are just a few of the com-
plaints that a deputy is dispatched to during a
day, not to mention the hundreds of civil papers
that must be served, the many hours serving as
court bailiff, and the extra unpaid hours spent
working at ball games and other civic functions.
Each and everyone thinks their problems are
the most important. Yes, drug arrests are very im-
portant. We, as parents, are very concerned about
drugs. We, too, wish drugs in Gulf County could
be eliminated. It would be great if all the officers
could be assigned only to the investigation of
drugs, but this would be impossible to do and still
handle all other problems that arise.
Gulf County is big and even if all officers
worked 24 hours a day, drug arrests and other
criminal arrests would still be missed. Promises
can easily be made but when it gets right down to
fulfilling these promises, a person can find it a lot
more difficult than expected. We are sure that the
officers of the surrounding counties, the State of
Florida, and the United States would like to
eliminate drugs, but they are, also, finding it a dif-
ficult problem to deal with. Let's face facts! As
long as drugs are in the world, Gulf County will
have the same problems as any other county. Gulf
County is not the only county where drugs are
used.
The youth of the county are important, but so
are the Senior Citizens and all those in between.
Sheriff Murphy has been concerned for all. You
can be assured that Sheriff Murphy has never
displayed any expressions of misconduct in front
of the youth.
In a recent letter to The Star, a man asked if
any prominent citizen had been arrested by the
Sheriff's Department. We don't feel that a.
citizen's prominence is important in making an ar-
rest. If a law is broken, an arrest must be made.
Gulf County can never elect a Sheriff that is
more concerned and cares more than Sheriff Mur-
phy. He has been criticized for not getting out of
the office more often, but when he is in the office,
he is working on a problem for someone or
answering one of the 50 or 60 phone calls he gets
during the day. When he gets out of the office,
then he is criticized for not being in when some-
one goes to see him or calls for him. You might
call it a "no win situation".
We are proud to say that we have one of the
finest Sheriffs in the State and we feel that Sheriff
Ken Murphy is good for Gulf County.

live, you can enjoy house
plants providing you care for
them properly. In last week's
article I discussed adequate
light and humidity. Today I
take up one of the most
important and certainly most
misunderstood factors in
house plant culture- proper
watering.
Carless watering kills
house plants faster than just
about anything else. So, I
want to discuss some of the
dangers of overwatering. I'll
also offer some tips on how to
tell when your plants need
water, and explain how much
you should give them. My
information was supplied by
Extension Urban Horticul-
turist Dr. Robert Black of the
University of Florida.
, Most plants grow very well
in a soil that's kept moist, but
not continually saturated
with water. Plants need air,
as well as water. Too much
water can suffocate plant
roots and cause them to rot.
Over-watering also causes
severe leaf drop.
Of course, how much you
water, and how often, will
vary considerably, depend-
ing on the type of plant you're
growing- its size and stage


CARTER
of growth, the potting soil,
the size and kind of contain-
er, and all of the factors I
have mentioned in previous
articles- light, temperature
and relative humidity.
One of the best guides to
proper watering is the feel of
the soil. As I have said, it's
best to keep the soil moist,
but not wet. To determine if a
plant needs water, just poke
your finger into the soil to a
depth of about an inch. If it
feels moist, water isn't need-
ed. If the soil feels dry and
crumbly, the plant probably
could use some additional
moisture.
Most plants should receive

applications of lukewarm
water. Except during very
cold weather, tap water is
fine. Water your plants
thoroughly, applying enough
to moisten the soil all the way
to the bottom of the pot.
If a plant is growing in a
container which has drain-
age holes, place the pot in a
saucer or tray and apply
water until you see excess
draining out of the bottom.
After you are sure that all the
excess has drained out, dis-
card the water that has
collected in the saucer. Nev-
er leave the pot standing in
this excess.
When using a container
that lacks drainage holes,
you should put a layer of
coarse gravel in the bottom
before adding potting soil.
This will provide space for
excess water to collect, and
help prevent the root rot
problem that usually occurs
in these conditions. A good
way to check the moisture
content of such a container is
to lay it on its side in a sink,
plant and all. Leave it in this
position long enough for all
excess water to drain out.
And then return it to its
upright position.
In summary, maintaining
proper soil moisture for
house plants isn't difficult.
But, it does require some
common sense and restraint.
I honestly can't over-.
emphasize that overwatering

is the most common cause of
failure with house plants. Of
course, too little moisture
also can be harmful. You
should check the condition of
the soil around your plants
frequently. Obviously, I can't
give you a specific watering
schedule, because so many
factors influence how often
and how much water your
plants will need. It's up to
you to keep a close check on
the condition of the soil
around each of your plants.

TO THE CITIZENS OF GULF COUNTY: -


Four years ago I was a candidate for Clerk of the Circuit Court and you
showed me your confidence with 44% of the votes. Most of you know
that I have continued my education these :past years and that I have
continued to remain in touch with the citizens of Gulf County.
In September you again responded with 49% of the votes. I THANK
YOU.
I have been out personally working for your vote. In doing this I have
met many of you and have learned your concerns. I share these con-
cerns with you, for a need for honest, efficient, responsible govern-
ment. I qualified to seek this office as a Democratic candidate. I would
never resort to political games to discredit my political party or com-
promise your right to fair government, for political gain. The reason
that I ask for your support is because I want to serve you as your full
time full term clerk.
My campaign has been carried out in a professional manner because I
am a professional business woman. I have been involved with people
my entire work life. Mine has not been a campaign of promises, only
performance. I understand the needs of the people in Gulf County and
my interest is in Gulf County. YOUR VOTE ON OCTOBER 2nd WILL
AGAIN BE A VOTE FOR A QUALIFIED, EXPERIENCED PUBLIC SER-
VANT.

Leo Kennedy worked and was successful In getting

'cessful in getting an IN HOME HEALTH CARE unit

getting money approved for a Medical Building for
Wewahitchka and the surrounding area. Leo Kennedy
Swas successful in securing a medical doctor and a den-
tist for the WeWahitchka area who would treat those
without means to pay as well as those who could pay.
Leo Kennedy proposed to the board of County Commis-
sioners more than 12 years ago to create a Water and
Sewer District for White City, Oak Grove and the
beaches. This was necessary to make these areas eligi-
ble for loan and grant money as It became available
through F.H.A. (Farmers Home Administration) or H.U.D.
(Housing Urban Development). More than $30,000.00
was paid at that time for engineering cost for these
three areas. Oak Grove has already gotten water and
.sewer, the beaches are in the process of getting water
ahd l'hope White City Is not too far away. There has only
,been a minor additional cost for up-dating these pro-
* jects and the toal engineering cost has been taken
from these loans and grants as money becomes
available so that the people of these areas will be paying
all.but the grant money, not the people throughout the
county.

I Want to


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
who 'are 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
there!
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
serving you, ALL the people of Gulf Coun-
ty.

Navy Musician 1st Class


Underwood Is Honored


Musician First Class Con-
stance Underwood, a Wewa-
hitchka native and a clarinet
instrumentalist with the U. S.
Navy Band, was recently
named Navy Band Sailor of
the Quarter.
During the period, in addi-
tion to her performing duties,
Underwood served as a
member of the band's techni-
cal crew, operating a spot-
light for the weekly Navy
Summer Ceremony at the
Washington Navy Yard and
at the band's special baseball
tribute concert.
The clarinetist" also contri-


teacher and band director in
1980 when an associate sug-
gested she send an audition
tape to the military bands.
"When the- Navy Band
invited me to audition in
person, I was excited, not
only to be asked to try out,
but also to travel for the first
time to Washington, D. C. I
was quickly impressed with
Washington's Southern ways,
from the friendliness of the
people I met to the blooming
azaleas that reminded me of
the flowers in my parents'
yard."
Following her successful


Constance Underwood


butes to the band in other
capacities. "I've always
been the type of person to
keep involved," she said. "I
enjoy volunteering for extra
assignments because I learn
about the other facets of the
Navy Band. By helping co-
ordinate publicity for our fall
and spring concerts, I learn-
ed about public relations, and
my most recent involvement
in painting the scenery for
the children's concert taught
me about set design. Even
my position as a member of
the band's loading crew has
given me an appreciation for
the amount of work involved
in preparing a stage for a
band performance."
The clarinetist's involve-
ment in the non-performing
aspects of the band comple-
ment her musical virtuosity.
In April, she was a featured
soloist at the band's Dulaney
Valley High School concert in
Timonium, Md.
Underwood earned her ba-
chelor's and master's de-
grees in music and music
education from Auburn Uni-
versity in Alabama. She was
workirig as a college music


audition, Underwood joined
the Navy's premier musical
organization and has since
performed with the 55-mem-
ber Concert Band on four
national tours.
This fall, Underwood will
be featured in the Navy
Band's "Sail Loft Recital
Series" at the Washington
Navy Yard. She welcomes
the challenge of preparing
special compositions for the
recitals.
When not pursuing her
musical interests, the Oxon
Hill resident enjoys tending
her garden. She brags of the
large sunflowers she raises.
and of the special strain of
green beans she swears grow
"This long," spreading her
hands a full arm's length.
