Charges Come and Go


The City of Port St. Joe no
sooner rids itself of one suit
froro the Equal Employment
Opportunity Commission be-
fore another action is threa-
tened.


Just this past week, the two
charges passed each other as
the were being dismissed
and another instigated.
The City was notified this
past week that charges filed


against the City nearly a.
year ago have been dropped..
The charges were leveled
against the City by the
"Voters' League" and
claimed discrimination by


the City in its hiring prac-
ties.
The charges weie signed
by a local citizen who gave
affidavits to the fact that he
did not sign the complaint.

Also this past week, the
City received another similar
complaint from the EEOC,
nearly identical to one re-
ceived by the Gulf County
Commission at about .the
same time.
"' "TIle charges, leveled at the
Cit, (a well as the county)
on a complaint signed by.
Edmund Dillon of Tallahas-
see, cites the City for unfair
hiring and promotional prac-
tices. Dillon, an officer.in the
Florida NAACP organization
charges the city has only a
small percentage of Blacks
working in public employ-
ment, which do not represent
the percentage of Black
population in Port St. Joe.
City Attorney William J.
Rish met with attorneys for
EEOC here in Port St.. Joe
late last week for a discus-
sion of the charges and a
clarification of the type re-
sponse EEOC wanted from
- the City. Rish reported to the
Commission Tuesday night
he and Clerk Alden Farris
were compiling the. neces-

Whatever (
A three year odyssey ended successfully
for head football coach and athletic director
Shaw Maddox and 14 senior football players
Saturday night at 8:35 when the final whistle
blew on the game for the state football
championship in the state of Florida in the
Class AA division.
It ended with the Port St. Joe Sharks on
the long end of a 15-12 score against the
Wildwood Wildcats after a wild and wooly
game played in Shark stadium here in Port
St. Joe.
Coach Maddox said he and. the team
definitely set out, three years ago, to win the
state championship, "And.we did it!" he
exclaimed.
"This is a happy time for all of us",
Maddox said after the game, "but it's also a
sad time. It means that while we're the best
in the State of Florida,it also means the end
of a long :association between these 14
seniors and myself. I don't know how the
boys feel about it, but it has been one of the
best experiences of'my life."
Maddox, in his third year as football
coach here in Port St. Joe says he doesn't
know what next year will bring. "We're still
relishing in what this year has brought.
Whatever next year brings, it couldn't take
precedence over this year."
If you get the idea the coach and his
team are floating on 'cloud nine', here five
days after the big game was over.., you're
right.
Maddox credits the entire team with
hard work, dedication and perseverance in
- winning the coveted state title. "While our
offense ran up some impressive statistics
during the year, our defense shut down some
of the most potent offenses in the state to win
the title in the play-offs. We went up against
some high scoring teams and completely cut
. heir,scoring threat off.'.' The coach went onp
to say, "Our offense might have seemed to
sputter during the play-offs,but that isn't so.
Don't forget, we were playing against the
best defenses in the state, too. You don't win
football games without a strong defense.
Witness our wins in the play-offs. It stands to


Comes After
reason, then, that our play-off opponents
were just as dedicated to using a strong
defense to shut down our offense as we were
to shut down theirs. That's the name of the
game."
In short, Maddox said the Sharks, in the
natural order of things, went up against the
best teams in the state of Florida to win the
championship..' '
Other than winning the state title, Coach
Maddox said his team learned one of the
most important lessons in life during the
past three .years. "They learned that if you
want something bad enough, and work hard
enough for it, and dedicate yourself to--a
particular goal long enough, it will pay off.
It has paid off for us." i
RECOGNITION -
Presently all of the team is basking in
the limelight of the warrior who slew the
dragon. Several of the Shark players are
under consideration for future commit-
ments; five were named to the All Big Bend
team and one was named to the all
classification Big Bend. team.
Maddox said several major colleges and
some smaller colleges -have expressed, a
tentative interest in Michael Pittman, Clris
Butts and Dwight Cearley for football
scholarships. "Of course, they couldn't
approach the players until the season was
over and now it will be after Christnmas
before the first approach is made directly.
Several colleges are definitely interested in
these three young men", Maddox said. '",
In addition, Doug Robinson, junior end,
was selected by the Tallahassee Democrat
Sunday as one of the all classification Big
Bend team. Robinson was the only Shark
selected on the all classification team.
Five members .of the state champion-
ship team were selected for the Class A4 All
-Big Bend team. These included Chris Butts,
Richard Ramsey, Dwight Cearley, Stan
Peters and Michael Pittman.
There's no doubt there will also be other
awards and honors coming for members of
the team in the weeks and months to come.

greetings from your merchants and
several other Christmas-features, will be
printed on Saturday of this week and put

The. Star is taking this early publi-
cation day to work publishing the paper
around the Christmas holidays, of


course, to allow our staff to be off and
with their families during the holidays.
i The next issue of The Star will be
published on Thursday, January 3, 1985.
The early publication day requires
all news and advertising material to be

there are many Letters to Santa in The
Star office, but all letters received by
the Friday deadline will be included in

Jeffery Alan Girardot, age 22, of
Blountstown became Port St. Joe's first
traffic fatality of the year, when his car
rammed into a heavy timber and steel
mooring cleat on the docks late Wednesday
afternoon of last week.
Police Chief Robert Maige said an
investigation, has shown Girardot was
depressed and had "girl trouble" prior to
the crash which took the young man's life,
but there is no indication to definitely point
to the possibility that he deliberately ran
into the heavy stanchion.
Chief Maige said several fishermen,
who were in the area during the afternoon
last Wednesday, reported seeing Girardot


parked near the south end of the old City
Warehouse at the edge of the docks at the
west end of First Street, with the accident
victim "just sitting" in the car. "One
fisherman reported seeing the car being
moved shortly before the fatal crash, but it
was parked again near the west corner of
the Warehouse", Chief Maige said.
Nobody saw the crash, nor witnessed,
the circumstances which brought it about,
killing Girardot instantly on the impact.
Chief Maige and investigating officer, City
Patrolman, Clyde G. Cole, said indications
from tracks and evidence at the scene show
that Girardot backed the car up, got a

Crime Rate Down

Here In Gulf County


Gulf County has been a
safer place in which to live
and protect one's personal
property during 1984, accord-
ing to a news release from.
the Department of Law En-
forcement released last week.
by the director, Patrick J.
Doyle.
In a dozen crime categor-
ies, Gulf County showed
improvement in all but two.


The county experienced one
more case of larceny than the
previous year and there were
two assaults reported on a
law enforcement officer; up
from the one assault reported
the previous year.
The report, sent to the Gulf
county Sheriff's office, com-
mending the office on its
crime deterrent experience
during the year, reported


There were no murders nor
rapes reported in the county.
for the entire year. These two
major crimes seem to be
almost a daily occurance in
the larger counties around
Gulf.
Larceny was the favorite
type of crime committed in
Gulf County. With 110 cases
of larceny reported, it ex-

SJPC Has Its Pers

St. Joe Paper Company shut down its huge paper mill here in Port St. Joe
the first of the week for the holiday period and to begin a period of
maintenance activity in the mill.
When the mill shuts down, there is no smoke, steam or vapors coming
from the stacks rising from the mill's machinery, as this picture shows.
The picture shows (or fails to show) something else too something it
formerly showed for the 47 years the mill has been in operation, but suddenly
it's gone.
If you noticed that the huge smokestack which formerly rose from the
middle of the mill buildings and served as one of the first glimpses one had of


;onality Changed
Port St. Joe while driving along the coast is now gone, you're very
observant. Almost as if the stack was stolen away in the middle of the night, it
has disappeared from the scene with no fanfare and no public announcements.
The stack, which stood nearly 200 feet in the air at one time, had been
shortened a time or two in the past, but during the month of November, the
stack was removed entirely because new methods of controlling emissions
and introduction of anti-air pollution devices had forced the huge stack out of
business. Now that you realize the large stack is gone, you will probably think
of the mill as being akin to a bulldog pup which has had its tail cut off. It's
personality has been changed. -Star photo

Being Champs Better



Than Second Place


How sweet it is to be
:football champions of the State of
-Florida!
It was Vince Lombardi, we
:believe, who said, "Winning isn't
;'everything, but it sure beats
-'whatever comes next."
Our Sharks have stuck it out
':over the full season-and for two
:seasons prior-and have won the
4 prize. It wasn't as if the prize were
Something which one wins by luck,
-o0 a turn of the wheel, or by
someone else's inability. The prize
ip this particular instance was won
.1iecause the Sharks paid the price
for three years and were the best
;team playing class AA football in
:Florida this year. Their winning
y.vas no fluke..
It's almost an after-thought
-Sere in Port St. Joe, now, to say,
M'We're proud of you." That's
already been said. several times.
But, what the heck. we're
going to say it again! "We're proud
f you!"
Personally, we have been
allowing the Sharks every week,
eVvery year, for practically every
,game, for 32 years now. Even after
|lhat long a time, we get a chill of
.pride up our backbone when the

Walking Wa

l.i Lawton lost.
W:' This past week, our Florida
Senator Lawton Chiles was trying
Io capture the chairmanship of the
minority party in the U.S. Senate,
::but he lost out to Robert Byrd of
[Virginia. ..... ,,, .
Chiles -reminds-- us of the
FSharksG;f e h 7itedeT pretty fair

As it turned out, Senator Byrd

t;an an up-hill campaign, much like
:"the one for the Senate minority

"political machines with a light-

seen them win. We've seen good
games and we've seen bad games.
We have seen the Sharks lose by a
hair and we have seen them lose by
a lot.
We don't think we have ever
seen a Shark team just quit... in 32
years of watching them play.
It's going to be a long year of
talking about our champions and
we're going.to enjoy every minute
of it.
As a matter of fact, every once
in a while, we still talk for a minute
or two about our football champion-
ship team of 1971. We also talk
about the several times Port St. Joe
as been involved in the play-offs
and it makes us proud of the brand
of competitiveness .we witness
here.
It was interesting to us to see
that almost all of the teams our
Sharks played in the championship
series will move" up into a larger
class next year. In other words, all
our opponents were larger than our
. team. Still, our te6m stuck it out,
carried the competition to their
competitor and won out.
Again, we're proud of you,
team, both for the way you played
this year and the way you deported
yourself while visiting teams in
other communities.


isn't Enough

Senate, but they do remember that
wherever he goes, legend has it
that he walks.
In his campaign with. Senator
Byrd, Senator .Chiles came up
against a constituency that wasn't
,411. Pt impressed with someone
who wh&l&Whwhehf-1je.--e--t-e-
suspect. As a matter "& 'faetf, -in'
official Washington, D.C., anyone
Who would walk across the street,
when he could, call on the services
of a chauffeur driven limousine is
probably suspect by his fellow
law-makers.
The next time Senator Chiles
begins running for the minority (or
majority) party, leadership in
Washington, he should come up
with another gimmick equally as
attention compelling as his walking
reputation. He '-might consider
tossing a silver dollar across the
Potomac. At least he can then
claim he carl make a dollar go
farther than, any other man on
Capitol hill.
Come to think of it, that's
already been done, and by a fellow
who is remembered pretty well in
these parts.


Chaka Khan and the Lucky Mullet Shirt


By Kesley Colbert
You know, it was a pretty
good. football season. Of
course I took a look at our
g xostyr before the season
k: h 'gg4 nd knew that it was
iigoing to beaai. good year
'cause we had *some great

Vegie, etc. suiting up every-
day for 17 weeks or .so you
knew that it was going to be
a fun year. And so it was.
Now you ask any of our of-
fensive linemen about what
they enjoyed best about the
season and I'm sure, to a
man, they'll tell you it was
blocking the seven man sled
or coming out of the chutes.
Boy howdy, now they loved
those two drills. I tell you
. what guys, ya'll meet me out
at the sled tomorrow after-
noon. after school and -we'll

We'll get Coach Stevens to,*

This year, the publication day of

That means I either have to work
on Christmas day or change the day of
printing the paper.
Guess which one won out? We're
going to change the day of printing the
paper. There aren't many options,
even for this decision.
We're printing on Saturday in
order to get the paper mailed and in
your hands before Christmas day.


't the Thing
So, you see, even printing the
paper is in my way for Christmas
shopping. That doesn't leave any time
for gift buying except Christmas Eve,
That won't be a problem. I normally
do my Christmas shopping on Christ-
mas Eve. So, what am I complaining
about?

THIS YEAR'S CHRISTMAS sea-
son had yet another obstacle to sane,
leisurely, deliberate Christmas gift
buying. The Sharks were in the thick
of winning the state football cham-
pionship, so we had to find time for
that. There were games to go to,
stories to write, programs to print,
etc. It all takes time right here in the
middle of the Christmas season.
Since the Sharks went ahead and
won the state championship, I can use
that quest for another excuse as to
why I didn't take a more deliberate
approach to purchasing Christmas
presents.
If it were not for the time
consumed with the play-offs, I feel

I Do Best
sure I could have the time to buy
Frenchie a nice Christmas present. As
it is, she may have to settle for a little
less than she is accustomed to
receiving. I remember last year, the
red tool box was a perfect compliment
to the tree and the decorations in the
room. The year before, the new screen
on the back door kept out the flies
while she was cooking dinner on
Christmas day.
This year, she just may have to
take "put luck" in the gift depart-
ment. I kind of hate it too, because I
enjoy giving gifts when I can think of
something to give. It gives me that
warm feeling inside, like paying $50.00
for a pick-up load of fire wood.
But, enough of my problems. I
brought them all on myself. I could
have become a millionaire, then I
would have someone else to do my
work for me, leaving plenty of time to
buy Christmas gifts. That way,
everybody would be happy.
As it is, about the best I can do,
until Christmas Eve, is wish you a
Merry Christmas.

INTRODUCE ORDINANCE
Tuesday's session of the
Commission was a short one,
as they usually are in and
around a holiday period.
Although the session was
short, the Commission intro-
duced an important ordin-
ance to get the City in a
position to make application
for block grant funds to make
certain improvements in
housing in the North St. Joe
area.
The City made application
for a grant to make the
improvements through its
grant writer, Julian. Webb of
Chipley, earlier in the year,
'but had the request turned
down. Webb informed the
1 City one of the reasons for the
negative response was that
the City had no fair housing
ordinance. The Commission
had never been told it was a
requirement for such grants
and so had never adopted
one.


(Continued from Page 1)


he Chief Maige said that in its death
ole plunge, the automobile struck a restraining
50 cable stretched across the end of First
vy Street just before it reaches the dock. The
force of the car struck the three-quarter
the inch steel cable, pulling one of its mooring
ng posts out of the ground. Striking the cable
ith seemed to cause the car to swerve a little,
aiming it directly for the mooring cleat.

(Continued from Page 1)


Attorney Rish presented
the Commission with the first
draft of the ordinance, which
would protect the rights of
anyone in regards to buying
or renting property in the
City. The ordinance provides
that an administrator be
appointed and a procedure
for handling complaints be
set up.
Even though Webb was in
Port St. Joe Tuesday, saying
he must file the City's
application for the block
grant by January 7, Attorney
Rish advised the Commission
that the fair housing ordin-
ance would meet the criteria

the adoption methods in the
future.
Agreeing that Webb could
file a statement of intent by
the City to adopt the ordin-

his block grant application,

ceeded last year's record by
one case, to be the only crime
which showed growth during
the year.
Motor vehicle theft showed
the most improvement with a
drop from 13 cases in 1983 to
only six cases during 1984, for
a 53.8 percent improvement.
Robbery was also a big
achiever, with a 50 percent
improvement over the pre-
vious year. Four. robberies
were reported in 1983 and
only two during 1984.
Even that old nemesis of


small counties, the break and
entering and burglary cate-
gory showed a dramatic
improvement over 1983. Dur-
ing the past year there were
only 44 reported cases in this
category as compared with
79 in 1983.
Overall, the report showed
there was nearly a 20 percent
drop in all crimes committed
in 1984 over the previous
year.
ARRESTS DOWN
Arrests showed a dramatic
drop during the year, also,


with the biggest drop shown
in juvenile arrests. In 1983, 19
juveniles were arrested and
only one was taken into
custody during 1984. Adult
arrests also showed a reduc-
tion, from 35 in 1983 to 33 in
1984.
Sheriff Ken Murphy said
his department has worked
hard to compile these im-
proved crime statistics.
"We're proud of the record
and hope the improvement
will continue in the future",
the Sheriff said.

with his drink beside him
and munched on his "choke"
while looking at the field. He
remained this way for about
15 minutes, eyes glued to the

BY ROY LEE CARTER
County Extension Director
A bright, colorful Azalea,
Christmas Begonia, Chrsan-
themum or a gaily decorated
Poinsettia, Cyclamen or
Christmas Pepper added to
the other decorations in the
home give the holiday season
a festive air.
These Christmas plants
can be enjoyed not only
during the holidays but will
remain attractive far into
January and even February
if cared for properly. Care of
Christmas plants, whether a
colorful Cyclamen, a long-
lasting Kalanchoe, or a
cheerful Christmas Begonia
is easy. Faithful attention
taff will add days and even weeks
der- of life to any of these popular
hoto Christmas plants.
Temperature has an im-
portant influence on the
length of time a flowering
house plant will remain
attractive. The poinsettia is
especially sensitive to. chill-
ing, and a prolonged chill will
by cause it to lose its leaves. The'
Gulf plant should be placed in the
at coolest part of the room, but
tion not in a cold draft. This
for means away from radiators
ar- and other sources of heat. A
temperature of 65 degrees at
night is satisfactory, but 60
degrees is still better for
most of the flowering potted
rhit- plants. In fact, Cyclamen like
. all a 50 degree night tempera-
ome ture.
and The method of watering
rth- many times determines the
the life of p plant. Many drown
:ary their plants by watering at
eet, regular intervals, not consi-
lay, during whether the plant
).m. needs it or not. Plant roots
need air as well as water, and
excessive amounts of water
do not allow a place for air in
the soil. Overwatering liter-
irch ally smothers the plant roots.

have optimum growing con-
ditions. Place your plants
where they receive the morn-
ing sun. Poor light will cause
leaf drop.
Although the humidity in a
house is not easily altered,
plants will do best in an area
of the house where the
humidity is the greatest. This
is usually in the cooking
area. It often helps if plants
are set on pebble-filled sau-
cers with water maintained a
a level just below the base of
the pot so that it doesn't
touch the water.
By giving your Christmas
pot plants the best environ-
mental conditions of proper
temperature, adequate wa-
ter and good light, they will
furnish an attractive display
for a longer time.

EXTENDED WEAR
LENSES


,Extended wear contact
lenses refer to any contact
lenses that can be worn dur-
ing the day and through the
night while you are sleeping.
The period of wear may be f
as short as 24 hours, or as t
long as 30 days. Wearing
time varies with each pa-
tient. ALL extended wear
lenses must be removed at
regular intervals for clean-
ing and disinfection.
What makes a contact lens
suitable for extended wear?
Most important is the ability
of the lens to permit more
than three times as much ox-
ygen to reach the cornea
than do daily-wear contacts.
This extra oxygen prevents
the cornea, the transparent
front portion of the eye on
which the contact lens sits,
from swelling or becoming
irritated.
There are different types
of extended wear contact
lenses. Some have an excep-
tionally high water content;
others are extremely thin.
Each has advantages and
disadvantages. Only a highly
trained professional can
determine which is best for
you and how extended your
wearing time should be.

Stout Defense Wins State Title for Sharks


Wildwood's Potent Offense Held In Ch


The Sharks and the Wildwood
Wildcats are even now. Each has a
state'championship at the expense of
the other ...
If Port St. Joe and Wildwood were
to play. 12 ballgames this season, the
record would probably be 6 and 6 for
each team: they were that evenly
matched and had equal talent going
into the state championship game
here Saturday night. Port St. Joe had
its strong defense clicking on all 11
cylinders Saturday night, while the
offense was unable to generate their
usual steam. The defense carried the
day, winning the game and the' state
Class AA. football championship over
Wildwood, 15-12 in a game which kept
the capacity crowd on the edge of its
seat for the entire 48 minutes of play
tim ,
Some 4,000 people packed Shark
Stadium for the championship game


which drew spectators from as far
away as St. Petersburg. The fans
weren't disappointed, as both teams
put on a show.
Port St. Joe's head coach, Shaw
Maddox said it was a fitting finish to a
fine season. "The defense has been
our backbone for the season and it was
our defense which won for us
Saturday night", Maddox said.
The defense scored ,te winning
*touchdown with nearly six minutes
left in the final period, which put the
Sharks out front with a comfortable
lead to protect.
The first period .was almost a
re-play of the week before in Alachua
when the Raiders kept the ball for
nearly 10 minutes in the 12 minute
first period. Saturday night, the
Sharks had the ball for only three
plays in the first period after they.
elected to kick off to the Wildcats.


The Wildcats were busy putting
their quickness and fast running
backs on display during the first
quarter and the Sharks were busy
feeling them out.
It looked as if the Sharks had the
Cats stopped on their first series of
downs, when the Wildcats were forced
to punt after three downs. The Sharks
were called for roughing the kicker on
the punt and the Wildcats were able to
keep the ball for a while.
The Wildcats stalled themselves
when they were tagged with an
ineligible receiver and an off-side call
back to back which stalled a drive and
moved the Cats back to their own 44'
where they were forced to give up the
ball as the second quarter was
beginning.
Then, on their second series of
downs of the game, the Sharks started

Dedicated to the 1984 Fighting Sharks.
The "Fighting Sharks", you're our team.
You're so great, you're so supreme.
You proved it to us, you went all the way.
For you're "State Champs of Class AA".
When you got hurt, you shook off the pain.
To prove "Purple and Gold" will always reign.
Often your opposition felt the Sharks' bite.
For your Offense and Defense were out of sight.
Against the Raiders, it was so cold.
Even yet, "Sharks' Pride" stood bold.
Against the Wildcats, it was hot.
And you still prevailed, no matter what.
Years from now when you reminisce,
You'll still taste Victory's Kiss.
With "Sharks' Pride", you will say,
In 1984, we were "STATE CHAMPS OF
CLASS AA"

from their own 27 yard line and
marched the length of the field in 13
plays to punch in the first score of the
game. The Sharks kept their lead for
the entire game.
The scoring drive was high-
lighted by two fourth down plays. The
first came with the Sharks on
Wildwood's 37 yard line, with a fourth
and six situation. Josh Jenkins, who
had already ripped off a 17 yard dash
up the middle, came bursting through
the line again and went for 11 yards to
the Wildcat 24 for a first down. Again,
the Sharks found themselves on the 17
with three yards to go on fourth down,
when quarterback Chris Butts went
for all the marbles and threw a strike
to Stanley Peters for the touchdown.
Jenkins put his foot in a booming
extra point kick and the Sharks were
ahead to stay.
Peters, by the way, was so ill with
the flu on Friday,.he could barely get
around. Putting on his football
uniform Saturday night seemed to be
the elixer which started him moving
again.
SThe.,Wildcats didn't sit still for
'lbn- Putting their "superl" quarter
back, Lorenzo Fields to work, the Cats
marched down the field in a four
minute drive, chewing up 71 yards to
score on a one yard plunge over the,
middle by Fields. Field's kick for the
extra point went wide after a high
snap caused him to hurry the kick.
After battling back and forth in
the third period, the Shark defense-
began to really rumble in the final
stanza. After Jimmie Lucas had

- This year everyone at Port
St. Joe High School has really
gotten the Christmas spirit.
The Drama Club and chorus
classes presented a special
Christmas program. The
members of the Drama Club
dressed as different toys and
were animated to help ex-
plain to the audience the
actual meaning of Christ-
mas. The chorus class ac-
companied the Drama Club
by singing various Christmas
-" songs to enhance the mood.
Both groups should be com-
mended for a most enjoyable
program.

egg bearing females, relaxes
trap removal and ownership

temporary retention of crabs
aboard vessels provided they
are kept wet, and allows
development of a system for
retrieving abandoned traps.
The rule will now also allow a

In other action, the Com-

changes in management
measures for oysters. The
Commission expects to re-

ment of Natural Resources
and area seafood worker
associations.'


For redfish, size limits, bag
limits on recreational fisher-
men, and equivalent restric-
tion on commercial .catch
were discussed. For trout, an
increase in size limit to 14
inches was favorably dis-
cussed.
The Commission staff was
directed to provide an analy-
sis of the effect of these types
of measures on the resources

PAGE TEN THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla. THURSDAY, DEC. 20, 1984


The entire community's excitement has been building
over the past month as Port St. Joe has progressed in the
state Class AA football play-offs. Friday night they took all
the marbles as they defeated a strong Wildwood team, 15-12,
to win the state championship. In the photo above Wildwood's
quarterback, Fields (10) has handed the ball off to one of his
running backs who has gone up the middle. It was a hard hit-


State Championship Game


ting game all'night long, as St. Joe's defense proved a strong
suit in the game. In the photo at top left, Coach Shaw Maddox
discusses strategy with the Sharks during a time out.
In the photograph at far left, Coach Rick Hatcher gives a
Shark a pat on the head and a handshake following the game.
The center photograph shows the side of the game few people
see. After the initial excitement of winning and the jubilation
comes the bone-weary tiredness of those who have played
their hearts and bodies beyond the limits of endurance.
Michael Quinn and quarterback Chris Butts are just too tired
to move. Butts was later taken off the field on a stretcher as
he collapsed from hyperventilation and exhaustion.

THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla. THURSDAY, DEC. 2 1984 PAGE ELEVEN


Increased Telephone Charges


In the Near Future for Users


Telephone subscribers can
look for increased telephone
bills in the near future, Linda
Bordelon, External Affairs
Manager for St. Joseph Tele-
phone and Telegraph Com-
pany told the Rotary Club
last Thursday.
Even though Mrs. Borde-
lon kept referring to tele-
phone company de-regula-
tion by the federal govern-
ment, it sounded as if the
phone companies are more
regulated than ever before.
The speaker said the new
rates-which would increase


local charges and decrease
long distance charges-are
being mandated by the Fed-
eral Communications Com-
mission. She said that in
addition to .the increased
local charges which will
cause local subscribers to
pay the entire costs of
providing local service, the
subscriber will be faced with
having to pay about a $6.00
"access charge" which
would give him access to the
long distance carrier lines.
Mrs. Bordelon said she
looked for local telephone


rates to eventually double.
"This will have the effect of
removing about a quarter
million telephones from the
system because they won't
be able to afford them."
She pointed out that in the
past local service has been
subsidized with contribute ions
from long distance charges
in order to make local phone
service available to nearly
everyone.
The speaker said the local
company is a high cost
company, having a low den-
sity of paying customers to a


Duck Hunting Season Is


Now In Its Final Phase.


Duck hunters have had a
pretty good hunting season so
far, according to wildlife
biologist Frank Montalbano,
in spite of some species Qf
ducks dropping to their low-
est population levels in 19.
years.
# Montalbano, who studies
waterfowl for the Game and
Fresh Water Fish Commis-
sion, said the Canadian ponds
and marshes where ducks
breed are vanishing amid 10
years of unusually dry condi-
tions. ..
"Since 1974, most years
have had drier weather than
usual," Montalbano said.
"The ponds are drying up
and the grassy marshes are
being plowed under by agri-
cultural operations."
During May, U. S. and
Canadian wildlife authorities
surveyed the ponds to firm
-up population estimates for
:10 species of ducks. Montal-
bano said they found that for
some species, population fi-.
gures are extremely low this
year.
"This could have been the
worst year on record," Mon-
talbano said, "except that in
: some breeding areas, popula-
tion figures were high enough
to offset some of the declines
in other areas."
This year, the breeding
: idult population-ofificks in
North America is estimated
at 37.9 million, compared to
an all-time- low of 30 million
in 1965. The highest breeding
duck population estimate
was 47 million in 1956, 1959
and 1972.


Wildlife researchers esti-
mate that 78 million ducks
will migrate south this win-
ter. During 1980 and 1981-
the lowest migration years
on record- the figure was 77
million.
"We've been here before,"
Montalbano said. "This isn't
the first time the populations
have dropped, but this time
there is an extensive loss of
breeding habitat."
Montalbano said that al-
though the duck populations
are under stress, duck hunt-
ers still are having average-
to-above-average success in
most of the state. He said bag
limits tend to hold duck
harvest figures to fairly
steady numbers from year to
year. Hunters take roughly
230,000 ducks per year in
Florida. That amounts to less
than 10 percent of the birds
that migrate into or through
Florida each winter.
The state has a year-round
duck population of 300,000
resident ducks, but the over-
all waterfowl population
peaks during late December
when migrating birds reach
this part of the country in
the largest numbers.
Also, Montalbano said new
steel shot requirements for
some areas have begun to
reduce the number of ducks
-that die from lead poisoning.
He said steel shot, rather
than toxic lead shot, is
turningup frequently in duck
gizzards. On the other hand,
ducks and the eagles that
feed on them still suffer from
high levels of lead ingestionf


in Florida and other states.
Montalbano said wildlife au-
thorities are likely to expand
steel shot requirements.
The final phase of the 1984
regular duck hunting season
in Florida runs from Dec. 14
through Jan. 20.


mile of service wire. Since,
under the new rules, each
service must stand on its own
revenue, St. Joe's-rates will
advance in the near future to
take care of the cost of
providing service.
"There are some other
changes coming in telephone
service and charges, too,
which will change the phone
picture considerably."
Guest of the club was Bob
Briggs of Sarasota.
