Gets Extension On Ambulance

Service by Gulf County


For the third time in six weeks, the Gulf
County Commission has extended the time
for cut-off of ambulance service .to the
Mexico Beach area in order to give the
community time to come up with an
alternative which will serve the needs of the
small town.
Mexico Beach Mayor Bob Hale won
some time for Mexico Beach by offering the
Gulf County Commission a payment of $5,000
as part of the $15,000 Gulf County has said
would be acceptable as Bay County's share
of expenses for providing the service for a
year.
The $15,000 was arrived at by the Gulf
County Commission when the Port St. Joe
service became a full-time, paid operation in
September. Gulf had to set up a budget of
$106,000 to pay operation expenses, anticipat-
ing a small percentage of the operation costs
from fees to be charged to patients. Since
Mexico Beach had received i4 percent of the
runs in the past, the Commission assumed
the same percentage would hold true in the
future and assessed Bay County the $15,000
as their share of expenses.
Thus far, Bay County' has ignored the
request, resulting in the unsettled ambu-
lance situation at Mexico Beach.
Tuesday morning, in an appearance
Before the Gulf Commission, Mayor Hale
said he was making the offer of $5,000 to
continue the service from Gulf County for the
time. being ,pending aravpalprraeLs.-City,,
Council which was meeting Tuesday night.
At the Town Council meeting Tuesday
night, the Council voted unanimously to
make the $5,000 payment to Gulf .and to
continue negotiating for a settlement of the
problem.

Truck Spills Logs Load On 98


A truck driver suffered several injuries and
traffic on Highway 98 was'interrupted for .nearly
three hours Tuesday afternoon, when a log truck
overturned near the intersection of Highway 98
and 24th Street, Mexico Beach, at about 2:30
p.m.
According to Mexico Beach Police Chief,
Theo Harris, Richard K. Walker of Panama City,
driver of the truck, lost control of the vehicle


while travelling toward Port St. Joe, loaded with
logs. The accident scattered parts of the truck
and the load of logs all across the highway.
Walker was taken to a Panama City hospital
for treatment of severe cuts about the head and
injuries to his right knee.
The truck was owned by David Rogers of
Marianna.


Chief Harris said there were no other
vehicles involved in the accident. "Apparently,
he just lost control of the vehicle, causing it to
jack-knife and overturn in the middle of the
road."
Chief Harris said charges, if any, will not be
filed until a complete investigation is made of the
incident.

Mayor Hale said there had been no
improvement in communications with Bay
County about the problem. "Presently, it is a
long distance call to the Bay County
ambulance and it is a 20 to 30 minute
response. I think Mexico Beach will be better
off to forget Bay County and try to make
arrangements satisfactory to both parties
with Gulf County. I'm asking the Council to
approve making this $5,000 down payment
and look for other sources of money for the
remaining $10,000. I feel comfortable about
'being able to get the money, even though we
don't have it in our small budget at is
time."
"This is all we have to offer at this
time", Hale said. "We will be the only town
with an item for ambulance service", .he
continued. Hale pointed out that a new
Mayor had been recently elected for Mexieo
Beach who .would take over in late
November. "I have assurances from him
and the new councilmen that they will
support this plan", Hale continued.
Attorney William J. Rish interjected the
idea that Mexico Beach. residents may be
charged a higher fee than Gulf County
residents, for ambulance service, with the
surplus fees going toward the $15,000 annual
charge.

misunderstood Attorney IRish's suggestion

Offers DOT A Deal




Bridge Gets New Boost


George G. Tapper of Port St.
Joe, said he had a "good reception"
from the Department of Transpor-
tation secretary in Tallahassee
Tuesday.
Tapper had gone to Tallahassee
for a conference with secretary.
Paul N. Pappas of DOT, concerning
getting something started right
away on construction of a new
high-rise bridge on Highway 98 at
Highland View. Tapper said he had
a plan to present DOT, which was
approved by the Port Authority here
in Gulf County at its meeting
Monday.
The Port Authority had author-
ized Tapper to offer to pay up to
$100,000 in engineering costs for the
bridge and to pay $2 million toward
the actual construction..
"If they accept our proposal-
and they appeared to be definitely
interested-we should see some


progress made on replacing the
present bridge in just a short
while."
Under the present time-table of
DOT, the Highland View bridge is
scheduled for replacement about
1989 or 1990.
Built into the offer of money to
help bear a good portion of the
bridge funding, is also a request to
make the bridge dimensions larger
than the usual DOT high-rise.
Tapper said the Port Autority is
asking that the bridge be built 75
feet in the air and have a span of 150
feet. Normal specifications for DOT
are 65 feet high and a span of 125
feet.
"This will enable us to bring
sea-going barges up the canal and
give us a better shot at developing
our port facilities," Tapper said. "It
would also probably be beneficial to
Material Transfer to have the


higher bridge", Tapper said. Pre-
sently MTI is bringing in coal in
1,500 ton barges. "Sea-going barges
can haul up to 35,000 tons, which
would be a.big saving on shipping
costs", he continued.
Tapper said, "We should know
whether or not our trip to Tallahas-
see was effective in about 10 days".
If it was successful, Tapper 'said
work on the new bridge would "start
immediately with the design work".
The Port Authority has been
trying for nearly five years to get a
new bridge started to replace the
old draw span currently serving in
the location. Replacement of the
bridge would spur along the impetus
toward creating a nevw port here in
Port St. Joe. DOT, however, is
reluctant to change their schedule
for replacing the present bridge
until some work is done on building
the port.

Christmas Parade to

Be Held November 24


Port St. Joe's annual Mer-
chant's association-sponsor-
ed Christmas parade will be
presented, along with the
annual visit from Santa
Claus, Saturday, November
24, according to Wayne Tay-
lor, chairman of the Associa-
tion.
Taylor said this year the
merchants are offering an
invitation to church groups
or civic organizations to set
up food booths, flea markets
or craft shows in the down-
town area as a special added
attraction to the parade.


"We want to make this a
.'Family Day' in Port St. Joe
this year. We ha ie a good
town here and some fine
people. We'd like to see them
get together for a day of
socializing with each other,
as well as offer a Christmas
shopping atmosphere."
Al Ray, who is heading up
the parade arrangements,
saic several groups have
air .dy committed them-
selves to entering floats, cars
and exhibits in the parade.
Ray said he expects the

The Port St. Joe Shark football
team will be participating in the state
football play-off system this yeqr for
the first time since 1975. That year,
the Sharks ended the regular season
with a 9-1 record before going into the
play-offs. Alachua Santa Fe defeated
Port St. Joe in the semi-finals to give
the Sharks an 11-2 record for the
season.
This year, under head coach Shaw
. Maddox, the Sharks will probably
have that identical 9-1 record to take
into the play-offs.
The Sharks will enter the first
round of the play-offs Friday,
November 23 against either Taylor
County in Perry or in Madison. Perry
and Madison will play Friday night of
this week for the championship of
their district. Perry is favored to take
the win.


Maddox revealed the play-off
schedule Tuesday in an address to the
Kiwanis Club, when he said the
weather and other natural phenome-
non will determine the outcome of the
first game with either Perry or
Madison. !'On a dry field, we can whip
either of the teams, I feel, but
extreme weather conditions could
change the situation."
Maddox described the play-offs as
a "sudden death" contest situation.
"We have to win every game to stay
in contention", he said. Maddox said
the Sharks would spend every day of
tfle next week getting ready for Perry
or Madison.
Assuming the Sharks get by the
first game "As we fully expect to do",
Maddox said, the Sharks will then host
the winner of the Graceville-Pace,
game. The third game of the play-offs


will be played in east Florida against
either Jacksonville Bolles or Clewis-
ton. Should the Sharks still be in the
run for the championship by the final
game on December 14, the game will
be held here in Port St. Joe.
"The way I see it, we will have a
hard road to travel to get to the finals.
If we make it, we'll probably meet
Sarasota's Cardinal Mooney in the
finals."
Maddox said neither the coaching
staff nor the team is counting their
points or trophies until they get them.
"These teams we have to play are
good. They didn't get into the play-offs
by being an easy team to beat. We
have our work cut out for us, but we're
going to be trying as hard as anyone.
We're hungry for that state title!"
Maddox said.

During the past two or three
weeks, we have witnessed the
concern of people over babboons
and mules.
We don't know whether to
laugh or cry over the reason for
- concern over the babboons. We
definitely laughed over the concern
for the mules.
A little over two weeks ago, the
news came out one morning that a
small baby had been kept from
dying by replacing its heart with
the heart of a babboon.
It wasn't until later that people
started getting concerned over the
ethics of putting the heart of an
animal inside a human being. The
-first reaction was concerning
cruelty to animals by killing that
babboon to get its heart for ,the
dying baby.
- Some of the bleeding hearts
were distraught that the babboon
was killed so the baby might live.
Of course, they didn't exactly say
they had rather the baby die and
the babboon continue to live, but

As for the mule; letters to the
editor of the Tallahassee Democrat
were up in arms over the "cruelty'
to a mule by making it dive from a
30 foot platform into a six-foot tank
of water.
One writer expressed herself
by saying, "I cannot help but
wonder what sort of training
"teaches" them to perform such
unnatural behavior."
Apparently the lady who wrote
the letter knew more about writing
letters than she knew about mules.
We wonder if she ever heard the old
cliche, "stubborn as a mule".
The mule didn't earn this
reputation by being cooperative.
He got the name be having a mind

sneezed at. Even if Port St. Joe is
well on up into the number of
students required to have the Class
2-A rating, it's still a big spread
between Port St. Joe and the
largest school in Class 2-A. Port St.
Joe would have to be considerably
larger to gain another "A" on its
ranking. So, chances are, Port St.
Joe wouldn't have much of a
chance in 2-A, considering the size
of our school.
But, we are there, and we have
been there before. If the people of
our town continue to support our
te.ai as they have in,the past, the
chances are that we will be there
again one day.


Even though the program has
been going on for nearly two weeks
now, the clean-up project isn't near
finished. From the sample we have
already seen, the end result will be
a pleasing sight when it is finished.
About the biggest complaint
* City Commissioners receive-
other than stray dogs-is the city
needing a cleaning. People in Port
St. Joe are concerned over an
unsightly community, although you
might not believe it to see the
trash which is tossed flagrantly on
the ground and streets.


Odd Vegetables Easy to Grow


By ROY LEE CARTER
Once thought of only as
Chinese vegetables, bean
sprouts are now widely used
in a variety of dishes. Sprouts
are easy to grow, and they're
a good source of protein, as
well as many vitamins and
minerals. In addition to being
very nutritious, sprouts are
inexpensive. Half-a-cup of
dried beans will explode into
a quart of sprouts, costing
only about one cent a serv-
ing. Today I'll explain how to
grow sprouts at home.
Many methods of sprouting
beans seem to give good


results. The three I'll discuss
in this article are very
simple, because they make
use of materials most of us
already have around our
homes. My information for
this article was provided by
Extension Vegetable Special-
ist Jim Stephens of the
University of Florida.
The first step in sprouting
is the same for all three
methods. After buying some
beans or seeds sold specifi-
cally for srpouting, sort them
carefully, choosing only
clean, whole specimens.
Thoroughly wash about a
quarter of a cup of these you


CARTER
select, place them in a bowl
or jar and cover them with


lukewarm water. Let the
beans stand overnight. By
morning, they should have
expanded to about three
times their dry size. Rinse
them well, and pour off all
excess water, now you are
ready to proceed with one of
our three sprouting methods.
To use the first method,
place a couple of tablespoons
of soaked beans in a quart
jar, and cover the top secure-
ly with nylon mesh or cheese-
cloth. Turn the jar on its side,
so the beans form a thin layer
and place the jar in a warm,
dark humid location.
The next step is very

THERE ARE PEOPLE who

And, some of you believe it.
There is Jeanne Dixon, for

annual predictions every year along
the turn of the calendar to give her
guess as to what the coming year will
bring us who await the new year with
our breath held.
II don't know where people like

their revelation. Some are just
educated guesses and some are wild
guesses. They have what they feel is
the low-down on the higher-ups a year

ONE OF THE BIGGEST guessing
games at the turn of the year is to
guess what will be the "in" thing to

I forgot what it was last year, but

started.


I have reached the age where
whatever is in the closet or the dresser

1985. This little blurb in one of the
daily papers is what brought on all
this fashion talk in the first place.
I admit that I'm no fashion plate.
Usually, I buy clothes or pick out my
day's ensemble because what I see
happens to appeal to my warped sense
of color and style.
For instance, I have a closet full
of pleated pants.
Back when pants with pleats were


So what happened to pleats in this
return to the things that will be in 1985'
In 1985, according to this revela-
tion, most of us over 50 can keep on
wearing our narrow ties because they
will be the fashionable thing to wear.
We can have our jackets cleaned and
continue to get just a little more wear
out of them, because, the wider lapels
and shoulders are coming back in.
And, the change made it before the


coats wore out.
About the only things coming "in"
besides the style clothes I already
have, which I can use, are gourmet
mustard and gourmet pizza.
The story I saw said 1985 will be a
popular year for minivans, scotch,
wine coolers, pornographic movies (I
thought they already were), the game
of squash, ponytails, colorful men's
underwear and slicked back hair.
Remember slicked back hair?
Remember hair?
If you still had hair, would you
slick it back just to remain in style?
I see where we'll also see a strong
revival of tropical-print shirts and
white socks.
The ladies will be blessed with
sashes, wide belts and cinched waists
while the men will enjoy their bared
midriffs.
For the keglers in the crowd,
bowling will return as a popular sport
in 1985, with predictions that people
will flock to the alleys.
1985 ISN'T GOING to be just a


year of favorite things returning.
There will be old familiar things
disappearing, also.
For instance, I read where the
Cabbage Patch Doll will fall into
disfavor in 1985, along 'with the
suntan. I just don't know what will
take the place of the Cabbage Patch,
but I wish I did.
The year of 1985 will see such
things disappear as Granola bars,
Penthouse and Playboy magazines,
vinly-covered car roofs, USA Today,
romance novels and low-alcohol beer.
So, 1985 isn't going to be all pluses.
There will be a few hardships along
the way, too. Why, I even read where
the "happy hour" is going to be a
thing of the past. I guess that with the
demise of the low-alcohol beer and the
need to drink harder stuff (by those
who do) the."happy hour" will give
way to the "happy half-hour". It won't
take a full hour to get happy with the
strong stuff, you understand.
For those of us who don't drink, I
guess we will continue just being
happy all the time.

important. At least three
times every day, until the
sprouts are ready, pour
lukewarm water into the jar,
swirl it around and drain it
off. The seeds should be kept
moist but not wet.
Depending on the bean's or.
seeds you're using, sprouting
will develop in three to five
days. Rinse and drain the
sprouts as soon as they reach
optimum length and before
rootlets appear. If you're
germinating mug beans, the
sprouts should be one-and-a-
half to two-and-a-half inches
long when they're harvested.
Alfalfa sprouts are best when
they're about one inch long.
Soybean sprouts should be no
longer than one-half inch
before harvest. And sesame
and sunflower sprouts should
be used as soon as they're
visible.
To employ the second
method, spread a couple of
tablespoons of soaked beans
on several layers of dampen- 0
ed paper towels, fitted into a
colander, or perforated plas-
tic tray. Wrap the container
in a black plastic bag, but
leave the opening loose, to
allow ventilation. As with the
first method, the seeds must
be rinsed thoroughly, three
times each day. When the
sprouts first appear, you can
replace the black plastic bag
with a clear one, so you'll be
able to tell when the sprouts
have reached their proper
length.
To use the third method,
just place a couple of table-
spoons of soaked beans in the
bottom of a new clay flower
pot, that's been saturated
with water, place a cloth
screen over the bottom hole,
and cover the entire pot with
a layer of muslin or cheese-
cloth. As previously descri-
.bed the bean should be rinsed
and drained three times a
day, or until the sprouts
reach optimum length.

THE STAR. Port St. Joe, Fla. THURSDAY. NOV. 15, 1984


Beach Ambulance from Page


Mexico Beach and he didn't want to cut it off,
"Still, the tax payers of Gulf County can't
logically be expected to pay for services for
Mexico Beach, which happens to be in Bay
County".
"I'm willing to grant an extension in
'time of offering the service, to give them
time to come up with a plan for paying for
the service," Birmingham said.
Owens clarified the misunderstanding
about excess fees by pointing out that the
fees would be charged users of the service in
addition to the $15,000 payment which would
merely assume Mexico Beach's portion of
the expenses being borne by the Gulf County
tax payers.
Mayor Hale left the meeting with the
extension of service for his $5,000 payment,
but there was no time limit set as to just how
long the service would be continued.
STILL SPARRING
The County Commission is still sparring
over issues with Property Appraiser Joyce
Williams, who was defeated for re-election in
September and has since done her communi-
cating with the Commission by letter.
In September Ms. Williams made a
request that the budget for her department
be reduced since she felt the office wouldn't
need that much money under a new
administrator. Tuesday, she made a request
that the second quarter payment, due in
January, be made early so her office would
be able to mail out homestead exemption
notices on January 1.
The Commission denied the early
payment after learning from attorney Rish
property, owners had until April to sign and
return the cards.
Ms. Williams also billed the Commission
for two employees who were recently
released from her office employment. After
being advised the Commission had the
responsibility for making the payments,
Commissioner Birmingham suggested the
Board request Williams and her employees


not attend a seminar in Miami during
December since she will no longer be
serving the county in the capacity of
Property Appraiser. "She can use this
money to make these unemployment
payments", Birmingham said.
Commissioner Branch voted "no" to
making the payments, saying, "The money
should come out of the office budget. I don't
see how she can spend all of that money".
Attorney Rish also advised the Board
that Ms. Williams had appealed the decision
of the Property Adjustment Board, where it
had made adjustments contrary to her
figures in the several cases brought before
them by complaining property owners. "The
records have all been sent to Tallahassee
and we can't make an answer to the appeal
until the-records are returned and we can get
a copy", Rish said.
OTHER BUSINESS
In other items of business, the Commis-
sion:
-Received a petition from Joe Thomas
signed by residents of Highland View, asking
that a garbage dumpster recently located in
the community be relocated in another
place. The dumpster is presently at the end
of Ninth Street, a "good distance" from the
nearest residence, according to Commis-
sioner Billy Branch.
-Received information from E. F. Gunn
that he plans to meet with Farmers Home
Administration Friday to discuss the new
Beach water system. "It has changed out
there since the work started. People are
moving in and neighborhoods have changed
since the system was laid out", Gunn said.
He also warned of developers placing
multi-family dwellings on one water tap.
"It'll cause you problems", Gunn warned.
-Decided to cut off the acceptance of
water taps to be installed as the system is
installed on December 7. After this time,
taps will cost a property owner more than
the present charge.


Volunteers Plan Recreation Garden for Home


A group of citizens in the
Port St. Joe area is beginning

Buys New Books for Library
The Gulf Pines Hospital Ladies' Auxiliary recently helped purchase over 200 new books
and 40 periodicals for the medical library at the local hospital. Shown above is Mrs. Gregg
Mahlkov, president of the Auxiliary, presenting a check for $1,500 to be used toward the pur-
chase of the books to Joe Allen, administrator of Gulf Pines Hospital. The books in the

amount of light entering the
pupil and the effect of con- s

acuity.
Basically there are three-
types of glare:

type of glare is particularly
troublesome for skiers, life-
guards and long-distance
drivers. DISABILITY
GLARE, a scatter of light
within the eye itself, reduces
visual acuity. Oncoming
headlights on a dark night
cause this type of glare. Sun-
glasses will not alleviate this
situation, and can be count-
erproductive if worn in dark-
ness. A new type of lens has
recently been developed to
help those suffering from
scattered light.
Before purchasing sun-
glasses, discuss your special
needs with your optometrist.

Family separation in the
military is a common pro-
blem that can be even more
traumatic for Army mem-
bers. There is a strong need
for a sense of community, the
kind that was once typical of
the American culture.
That's why the Army's
Family Support program
was begun. It is picking up
steam and is especially popu-
lar with families of the 82nd
Airborne Division.
According to Capt. Alfred
J. Johnson, a sociologist and
the 82nd Airborne Division's
social work officer at Fort
Bragg, N.C., Army families
like that of First Sergeant
Larry C. and Willie R.
Morning, and their children;
Larry Jr., Petula, Clauion
and Tracey, have the oppor-
tunity to help re-create that
sense of community. Theirs
is a shared, common bond
with other members of a


military unit.
Military families have al-
ways had to deal with
separations and moving, but
because of the 82nd Airborne
Division's role as the Army's
worldwide quick reaction
force, Morning, son of Alfred
and Hester Morning, 149 Ave.
F, and Willie, daughter of
Willie R. Underwood, 223
Ave. D, and Annie D. Daw-
son, 236 Ave. C, Port St. Joe,
must live daily with the
possibility that he may be
deployed on an operation like
Grenada.
When such an operation
occurs or 1st Sgt. Morning
deploys on a six-month tour
with the Multinational Force
and Observer task force, a
soldier's loyalties and emo-
tions are torn between duty
and family. And understand-
ing and support or the lack
of it from his family can
make a big difference. Here


is how the Morning family
deals with the conflict.
"I'm a people first ser-
geant and a caring one and
my first responsibility is to
'take care of my troops," said
Morning.
Morning said that in the
past he didn't feel as com-
fortable about being away
from his family because he
felt his wife didn't know
enough about the military.
Now he says he feels more of
a conflict because he feels
Willie can handle things
while he's gone and he's
more apt to want to go.
"I feel that it's good for me
to be a little independent and
I plan to teach my daughters
to be that way," said Willie.
"If'I am independent, there
are certain things Larry
won't have to worry about
and he can give that worry
over to somewhere else and
be at peace that the children


Army lst Sergeant Larry C. and Willie R. Morning, discuss how they handle the separa-
tions and how they feel about military life. (U.S. Army photo by Spec. 4 Lupe Hernandez)

and I are OK."
Whether it's two weeks in
the field or a combat opera-
tion in a foreign country,
when soldiers deploy they
often leave their wives and
families in unfamiliar sur-
roundings, without family
and friends close by, and
without any knowledge of
where the soldier is going, or
for how long. The lack of an
extended family around
helps put the nuclear family
under a strain. This, accord-
ing to Capt. Johnson, is
where the Army Family
Support comes in.
Johnson explains, "Espe-
cially in the military we live
in a fragmented society. In
many cases the wife, hus-
band and children all have
entirely different days; they
live in an area that can be
perceived as just a bunch of
buildings, not a community.
We're trying to re-create
that lost sense of community
even though people are geo-
graphically scattered. With
Army Family Support the


community exists through
the telephone and is support-
ed by the soldier's organiza-
tion."
The program is designed to
pull together family mem-
bers who are left behind,
through their common bond
of family separation. It also
helps fill the gap left by the
deployed soldiers and the
distance between them and
their extended family.
This is done by providing
as much information on the
soldier's whereabouts as pos-
sible through newsletters and
phone calls, meetings that
discuss how to handle pro-
blems with the car, finances,
or the children, and just
letting the families know
someone cares and under-
stands what they are going
through.
"The wives are the key to
the program's success," said
Capt. Johnson. "If the sol-
diers set up the-program and
ran it, the program would fall

Girl Scouts Leaders Are

Needed In Port St. Joe Area


Girl Scouting is not provid-
ed for all age girls in the Port
St. Joe area because of the
lack of adult' leaders to
direct the various troops.
Troops that are meeting now
are full, but with leadership
there could be more troops.
Many young girls are inter-
ested in Scouting but there
are no troops to join.
Brownie Troop 242 has sev-
eral Brownies who will be
flying up to Juniors next
year, but without a troop to
go to, this will be their last
year in Girl Scouts.
The various age groups
available in Scouting are
Brownies for 6, 7 and 8 year


olds or 1st, 2nd and 3rd
grades; Juniors, 9, 10, 11
years old or 4th, 5th and 6th
grades; Cadettes for 12, 13,
14 years old or 7th, 8th, 9th
grades; and Seniors, 15, 16,
17 years old or 10th, 11th and
12th grades.
For the three younger age
levels, a troop needs a leader
and an assistant. A Senior
Scout may be an assistant if
she has had leadership train-
ing.
Anyone interested in help-
ing the Girl Scouting pro-
.gram in this area should
please call the Girl Scout
Council of the Apalachee

Ducks Unltd. Aiding

Ducks' Breeding Areas


Ducks were disappearing
from the Northwest Florida
hunting scene a few years
ago, but an organization
called Ducks, Unlimited is
responsible for starting their
return. This was the informa-
tion given to the Port St. Joe
Rotary Club. last Thursday.
by Dr. Earl Frye, former
head of the Florida Fish and
Game Commission.and now a
state director with Ducks,
Unlimited.
Frye said the ducks were
disappearingg for several rea-
sons, mainly because agri-
culture is taking over some of
the land areas formerly used
by ducks for breeding
grounds. He said most of the
ducks and geese which mi-
grntf" through this area hatch
out and raise their young in
Canada, with some breeding
grounds in North and South
Dakota, Minnesota and Alas-
ka.
Ducks, Unlimited. was
founded to raise money and
send it to Canada to be used
for duck and goose propaga-
tion purposes. "It's against
the law to use federal money
out of the country, to support
wildlife habitat. Ducks, Un-
limited can raise private
capital and spend it in'
Canada on waterfowl breed-*


ing grounds", the speaker
said.
Frye said all money raised
by Ducks, Unlimited is spent
in this manner, less a small
percentage to manage the
organization here in the U.S.
Frye. said many small
towns in Canada have water-
works built by Ducks, Unlim-
ited, simply because they
were built in such a manner
as to encourage duck and
goose propagation..
Frye said 75 percent of the
ducks and geese in this,
country are raised in Canada
and 70 percent of those killed
by sportsmen are killed in
the United States. "So, it
makes sense for Ducks,
Unlimited to finance duck
propagation in Canada."
Dr.. Dan Duncan, pastor of
Long Avenue Baptist Church
was taken into the club as a
new member.

Defeat Wakulla War Eagles 17-6 Friday Night


St. Joe


Port St. Joe's Sharks put
their season on the line last
Friday night and extended it
by four more possible games
by dumping the Wakulla War
Eagles, 17-6. The War Eagles
have dominated in the post-
season play-offs in this part
of the state for the past
several years and were one
of the stronger contenders
this year, too.
But, the Sharks were
stronger.
Tuning up their swarming
defense which has been very
stingy with allowing scores
this season, and put together
a winning formula which saw
the defense scoring nine
points and the offense eight.
The defense forced the'
Eagles to fumble four times
during the game and picked
up every one of the loose
balls-one for a Port St. Joe
touchdown. The defense
swarmed over the Wakulla
quarterback, Todd Lanter,
and sacked him five times.
Lanter gets the credit for
being one of the best passers
in North Florida.
The defense also tied up
feared running back, Gary
Simmons, allowing him only
54 yards for the night and
pass receiver, Thomas
Franklin. Franklin is Lan-
ter's favorite target, but the
Shark defenders tied him up,
allowing only 19 of 34 passes
completed, but also held the
Wakulla yardage by passing
to only 150-about half their
normal game production.
Sidney Harris and Michael
Pittman paced the defense
for the night, getting 10
tackles each to their credit.
Mike Quinn had six tackles
and two assists and Josh
Jenkins had six tackles.
Robert Harris, Curtis Ray
and Arthur North each had
four tackles and two assists.
Doug Robinson and Tan
Smiley had rushing the Wa-
kulla quarterback as their
assignment for the night.
Robinson caught him twice
and Smiley decked Lanter
three times. While they were
dbing this special assignment
each picked up five tackles
and four assists to his credit.
Noseguard Dwight Cearley
kept Mr. Simmons out of the
middle of the Shark line and


stopped a Wakulla drive by
sacking Lanter in the third
quarter.
The Sharks showed the
War Eagles they had come to
play on the fourth play of the
game. Having held the Ea-
gles to no gain on three
straight plays, center Buddy
Moore centered the ball wide
of punter Reggie Melton's
reach and Tan Smiley and
Doug Robinson were on the
ball in the end zone in the
blink of an eye for a Shark
safety.
The two teams traded
possession four times, before
the Sharks put together a
scoring drive in the waning
seconds of the first quarter.
Starting from their own 33,
after holding the Eagles on
a fourth down situation, the
Sharks sent Michael Pittman
down the sideline to the War
Eagles 40 before he was
pushed out of bounds by
Franklin. Sidney Harris then
ripped off seven yards in two
plays and quarterback Chris
Butts kept the ball for a 13
yard gainer. Then, starting
from the Eagle 19, Pittman
got two hard ones before
Butts kept the ball again and
electrified the Port St. Joe
fans with a twisting, turning
run to the three yard line.
Two plays later, Pittman


Wins District 3 AA


zipped across the goal line
and the Sharks had a 10-0
lead.
In the early minutes of the
second quarter, with less
than two minutes gone on the
clock, the Eagles were trying
to punt from their own 24,
when Tan Smiley caught
kicker, Melton, trying to pick
up another errant snap frbm
center, and jarred him loose
from the ball. Richard Ram-
sey picked up the loose ball
and ran the 15 remaining
yards to the goal line to score
his first touchdown of "the
season. Stan Peters kicked
the extra point and the
Sharks had all their points on
the board and the game was
only. a little more than one
quarter gone.
With the score now 17-0, it
looked as if the Sharks were
going to turn the game into a
rout of number three state
ranked Wakulla. The War
Eagles tightened up their
defense to match the Shork
defense, which was already
tightened up, and both teams
played a strong defensive
game for the remainder of
the contest.
With their running threat,
Gary Simmons and their
passing combination of Lan-
ter to Franklin shut down,
the Eagles tried anything


they could to make a yard.
Filling the air with passes,
Lanter finally connected with
Franklin when it would count
with 6:23 left in the game. An
eight yard strike to Franklin
was good. for the only six
points the War Eagles could
come up with Friday.
In the closing minutes of
the game, the Sharks drew
an illegal procedure penalty
which had them trying to
. punt from their own nine
yard line. One punt had
already been blocked and
another had been tipped.
This time a bad kick put the
Eagles in business from the
Shark 33 yard line with
plenty of time to cover the
distance to the goal line. On
,the first play, Dwight Cear-
ley slammed into Lanter
jarring the ball loose. Arthur


North chased the loose ball to
the Shark 49 where he fell on
it. The Sharks held on to the
ball to run the clock out.
While the Sharks were
homing in on Simmons and
Franklin, the Sharks' Mich-
ael Pittman was the target of
the Wakulla defense. Desite
the pounding he took all night
long, Pittman still gained 83
yards running in 18 carries.
Quarterback Chris Butts
kept the ball seven times and
gained 39 yards to surprise
the Eagles. Josh Jenkins, the
inside runner of the Pittman-
Jenkins tandem, bulled for 31
yards in three carries. Little
Sidney Harris darted for 14
yards in five carries.
Butts' passing, which has
been sparing but exceedingly
effective this season, was
another point of attention by


the Wakulla defenders. Butts
connected oh four of eleven
attempts, but good for only
one yard of advance.
FRIDAY NIGHT
Friday night, the Sharks
will close out the regular
season, going after the Gulf
County trophy in Wewa-
hitchka. The Gators, rebuild-

season, going up against the

compliance with the law that
requires immunization
against childhood diseases.
Based on samples of at
least 400 records and five
scliools in each county, the
survey was completed in the
last quarter of 1983 by the
Department of Health and
Rehabilitative Services
(HRS) in coordination with
the Department of Education
and local school officials.
Only Franklin and Osceola
Counties were below the 90
percent level. Overall com-
pliance was found to be 97
percent for fifth graders, 94
percent for eight graders and
93 percent for twelfth grad-
ers.
"The results were highly
encouraging," said Dr. Ste-
phen King, state health offi-
cer. "The condition of the
records reflected months of
hard work by local school
officials and county public
health units."
Florida's compulsory im-
munization law requires stu-
dents in, kindergarten
through twelfth grade and in
public preschool to have
proof of immunization on file
to attend school. Protection
levels. for diptheria-tetanus-
pertussis (DTP), polio, mea-
sles, rubella and mumps
were lowest for mumpsmin all
grades surveyed.
King said surveyors found
only 164 students with ex-
emptions and 624 with no
documentation at all.
