Building Takes Big Hike In 1984


Permits for New Construction, Rebuilding, Top $11.5 Million


Building in Gulf County-especially
south Gulf County-took a dramatic
increase during 1984, besting the pace set
the previous year of 1983 by nearly a
third.
Building Inspector, Dewayne Manuel
told The Star this week that a total of
$11,537,262 in building permits were
secured by builders and developers
during the past year to construct 372 new
living units. Included in the $11.5'million
figure are also permits for 27 additions
and remodeling jobs, valued at $323,169.
During 1983, the Gulf County building
department recorded permits issued for


286 new living units and 33 remodeling
and addition permits, for a total value of
$9,081,552.
"I'd say at least 90 percent of those
permits .issued were for the beaches
areas, indicating the boom is still in
progress in that vicinity", Manuel said.
He pointed out that while the large
'amount of new building was in the
beaches area, there was a resurgence of
the single family dwelling construction
toward the end of the year. "Single
family dwelling construction by the
owners is beginning to make a strong
come-back in the county", Manuel
o


pointed out.
A great deal of the beaches .onstruc-
tion is being done by developers and
consists of townhouses and other multi-
family dwellings.
"I don't see much of a slow-down for
the, future", Manuel said. "In fact, if a
proposed central sewage district propos-
ed for that area south of Oak Grbve to the
Franklin County line gets going, you'll
see an increase in building; ribt a slow
down". Manuel said property bwners in
the area mentioned are concerned with
getting higher density out of their real


estate investments and the only way they
can do it is with a central sewer system.
"There is a movement starting up to
create a sewer district in this part of the
county, and put the sewer in", the
building inspector said.
The first suggestion of such a project
was revealed at a County Commission
meeting in early December.
In the meantime, builders are
working full-time on construction pro-
jects here in Gulf County and the building
inspector sees another year ahead of
feverish activity in this part of the
economy.


City Adopts Ordinance


Making It Illegal to Discriminate In Housing,


It is now illegal to discrim-
inate against anyone on the
basis of national origin, color
or sex in Port St. Joe in
regards to housing, both
sales and rental.
Adoption of Ordinance
number 151 Tuesday night,
after the final reading, puts a
Fair Housing ordinance on
Port St. Joe's books for the
first time. The City was*
informed that lackof such an
ordinance was hurting the
City's eligibility ranking

federal grants. The City has
an application pending now
for a community develop-
ment block grant to rehabili-
tate existing housing.

MIKE McDONALD

New Manager Takes

Over Fla. Power Office


Mike McDonald took
over the management 'of
thde local Florida Power
office last week, taking on
a position vacated by Jim
Cox, who'as stepped down
in retirement.
Cox said, "After' nearly
40 years, it's about time to
hang it up and spend some
time doing what I want to
do for a while."
Cox has served as man-
ager of the focal office for
the past 10 years, but has
worked in and out of the
Port St. Joe office since
1949, coming here as a


lineman.
McDonald is a native of
Apalachicola, but was ser-
ving as an office manager
in Winter- Park before-
accepting the Port St. Joe
assignment. He has been
with Florida Power for 12
years.
McDonald is married
and has two sons, eight and *
12 years of age. "We're in
the process of trying to
re-locate to Port St. Joe at
the present time and I hope
we will be permanent
residents of the City in just
a short while", McDonald
said.


Road 22




Project Is




Revived


Permit Approved for

Landfill Operation

A road project which has been lying dormant for 20
years emerged again this past week and received approval
from the Gulf County Commission in the form of a favoring
resolution Tuesday morning.
During the Christmas holidays, the Wewahitchka -
Chamber of Commerce and Mexico Beach interests joined
in trying to revive the old project of seeking an extension of
State Road 22, which was recently turned over to Gulf
County for ownership.
Some 20 years ago, a formidable approach was made
toward getting a bridge built across the Apalachicola River
at the present end of 22, just east of the Dead Lakes Dam,
near Wewahitchka, and extending the highway through the
.Apalachicola National Forest to U.S. 319, just south of
Tallahassee.
Gulf County Judge David Taunton is president of the
Wewahitchka Chamber of Commerce and said the most
recent attempt to get the road build and a bridge across the
river came about because the Federal Government is
presently building pieces of road in the National Forest
which would connect into such an extension of 22. "This
road (in the Forest) is labeled Forest Highway 13 by the
Federal Government and already approaches within five
miles of where a crossing of the Apalachicola River from
Road 22 would be" Taunton said.
Extension of the road would save about 20 to 25 miles to
Tallahassee from Wewahitchka and about the same.'
number of miles from Panama City to Tallahassee.
"We're just getting the project off fte grbund"Taunton
said.
The project gained even more momentum Tuesday,
when the Gulf County Commission agreed unanimously to
favor an endoresment of the bridge across the Apalachicola
River as a part of the package. The county' instructed
"attorney William J. Rish to draw up a resolution favoring
the project, to be forwarded to the Department of
Transportation.
The Town of Mexico Beach added further sup-
port to-the movement Tuesday night, by having its
Town Council vote their .support of the entire idea.
Mexico Beach's, Council also voted unanimously to
prepare a resolution in favor of the concept.


RECEIVE PERMIT
Dewayne .Manuel, who has been handling the
permitting project for the County's solid waste burial site at
Buckhorn, reported to the Commission Tuesday that the'
permit -had been approved by the 'Department of
Environmental Regulation with certain stipulations.
There will be no burning at the landfill site, no dumping
of hazardous material-and,water monitor wells will be
placed at four locations adjacent to the landfill site. "DER
wanted four inch wells drilled, but our engineers have been
-successful in showing them two inch wells would do what
DER wants done", Manuel said. 'He pointed out that even
the two inch wells, installed like DERg wants them installed,'
will cost approximately $20,000. "That's a lot of money for
four wells, but its the best estimate we have to go with at the
present time until we take bids", Manuel said.
Another stipulation is that the county. begin turning in
quarterly water testing reports with the first test due in
February. "We can't meet that deadline", Commissioner

Courtroom Fills with Spectators for Swearing In of New Officers

job with its liberal annual leave
and sick leave, has to let a man go
because he has a disease which
might keep him off the job several
days, there would seem to be
something suspect in the motive.
Then there was the mail man
up north who was fired just a
couple of days prior to Christmas
because he had placed a few of his
personal Christmas cards in the
mail box.
It was later revealed that what
the letter carrier had done was
common practice in his area.
It would seem to us the service
could find more to do with its
investigative time by examing the
reasons why people don't get mail
they are sent through the service,
rather than worry over a couple of
Christmas cards, delivered without
stamps attached.
Here in Port St. Joe, we get
pretty good service,, so long as the
mail is handled right here in town.
Just you let it leave town, though,
and go through one of these
regional or sectional centers, and
it's anybody's guess as to what will
happen to it. ,



s Taking Over


servants, no matter what our
politics.
For four more years, these
people will be operating the nuts and
bolts services of the county with
our tax money. We think it is your
duty and ours to look over their
shoulder and express our displea-
sure when they do wrong and offer
our encouragement when they do
well.
S We. also owe it to ourselves.

must ask, '.'Yes, but what if?" the
missile had come into Canada or
the U.S., would a war have been
started by a mistake?
A war didn't start with this
accidental' trip by an enemy
missile, so why should we think it
might if its flight pattern had been
different?.
We believe that if the Russians
care to flex their missiles, they will
not be satisfied to shoot an
unarmed weapon into an area
where it can do.no damage. In such
a situation, they would want to
make a lot of no*". Remember the

Me and
By Kesley Colbert
The editor of this paper and
myself have had a running
feud for months 'cause he
gets all the good ",foreign
assignments" while I have to
sit around in;my living room
trying to think of something
to write about each week.
I've discovered that it's
rather difficult to cover a fast
breaking news story from
your living room. Maybe
that's why most of my stories
aren't so fast breaking.
Anyway, I was in his office
(and I use the term rather
loosely because I've been in
The Star numerous times and
I have yet to locate a place
that might be construed as a
real office) just the other day
reminding him again of the
travel and adventure ;(in lieu
of pay) he promised when I
signed on to write this little
blurb. He looks up at me over
his glasses and says "I've got
just the right place, to send
you". You know, as, I was
riding along in the truck a
couple of days later, I was
still trying to figure out

He was sending me to a come into his eyes and his

he wanted me to interview interview some' of- the folks..
some of the folks around over in Cades Cove- hop in,
there and kinda' get an I'll drive you over there in
insight into what the people my car." I got my sweater

that I ought to fit right in with
those old pioneers of a
hundred years or so ago. I
still don't know what he
meant by that statement.
Well boys, I had some
pretty good luck that first
day- I found the Smoky
Mountains; but I was having
somewhat of a time locating
a place called Cades Cove.
That's when I ran into
George. I told him I was a
reporter (so I lied a little)
and my editor had sent me up
here to interview some of the
people of Cades Cove to learn
about the early life of that
little community. Now


As we started up into the'
mountains it began to rain.
George said that it would be
snowing in just a little bit.
Shucks, I only had one day to
get this done and it wasn't
raining very hard and it sure
didn't look to me like it was
going to snow; I had a friend

driving right to where I
wanted to go- everything
was a'going to be all. right.
George said "You got a hat
or a coat?"
"Well, no, it was 70 degrees
when I left home."
"You come to the Smokies
in January, you ought to
bring a hat and a coat."


A Good Time


We drove up for a while.
The view from the car out
across the mountains would
have knocked your hat (if
you had one) in the creek. It
was magnificent even in the
d4ead of winter- the rain an4d,
-theclouds or fog.or whatever.
it was didn't detract from the
beauty.
George rounds a bend,
takes a road to the right and
stops the car. We had made it
to the cove. Cades Cove is a
relatively flat area that is
completely encircled by the
mountains. You could see
right off why it would be
settled and farmed. It was
the only place I'd seen for
miles that wasn't either
straight' up or straight down.
The sign on the road that
wound around the base of the
mountains told me it was 11
miles around the cove- it
also said it was one way,
which was O.K. by me 'cause
it was barely wide enough for
one car and I'd never seen
George try to drive in
reverse.
As we start down the road I

keep seeing these little Na-

George if we're in a National
Park. He looks over at me
like. that was about the
dumbest question he'd ever
been asked but all he says is
"Yes, the signs kinda' gave it
away, didn't they?" As we
drive along all by ourselves
'cause it's apparent that we
are the only ones in this cove
I look down at the blue horse
on my note pad and this
sinking feeling hits me way
down low in my stomach. I

It wasn't fun having to shiver to

It was no fun having to build a fire

fire on the ground. I never asked her,
but I don't suppose it was any fun for
Momma to be washing and hanging

I remember Momma always
washed on Wednesday, no matter
whether it was a howling dust storm,
raining, snowing, freezing or pretty
weather. The neighbors could always
tell, with a certainty, that it was

ended with one bottom-busting after
sliding down.
My sister-in-law said she wouldn't
get outside again until the snow
melted and the ice thawed. That could
take months.
In the meantime, I think I'll just
tough it out here in the Panhandle of
Florida where snow and ice are a
phenomenon rather than a reg-
ular experience.

the south Gulf County landfill operation on Industrial Road
just as soon as the solid waste compaction station is
completed.
ROAD SWAP
The Commission was informed by Jake Varn, a
Tallahassee attorney that only a portion of the Sauls Creek
road is located according to its official description and MK
Ranches, owner of the surrounding property, would like to
get the title and actual location of the road to cooincide.
Varn said the attempt to properly locate and describe the
road is being pursued because MK is in the process of
selling the property to the State of Florida and they must
properly identify any roads included in the tract.
Varn was asking the County to approve of a re-writing
of the road description, the new description describing the
road where it presently is located. "Also, the new
description would give the county a 100 foot right of way the


(Continued from Page 1)


entire length of the road to a point about 100 feet beyond.
where Brown's Creek crosses the road. Presently, the right
of way varies. Some stretches are 100 feet, some are 50 feet
and in some stretches, you have no right of way at all".
Commissioner Everett Owens said the county would
like to get the proper right of way for all the roads along the
Sauls Creek road area.
Varn said, "That's fine with us. Now is the time to get
all that done to protect the county's interest in the years to
come".
The Commission agreed to Varn's proposal but stated
they would need to advertise the land swap, which, in effect,
is what is taking place.
OTHER BUSINESS
In other business matters, the Commission:
-Passed a resolution asking the Department of
Environmental Regulation to go ahead and approve their
necessary permit for removal of the Dead Lakes Dam.
-Agreed to advertise for engineering services to
replace the Pleasant Rest Cemetery Road bridge..
-Were notified that the recent proposal of the HRS to
move the Wewahitchka and Apalachicola offices of the
state agency to one central location has been abandoned.
The offices will remain in operation as they now are.
-Agreed to extend Rev. Larry Wells' part-time service
with Civil Defense into a full time position and give Wells
the added responsibility of managing the food commodities
distribution program in both ends of the county.

technique of flashbacks, the
film depicts Denny and Cindy
as they really were- with
the same dreams and the
same frustrations as other
people. Denny had been
trained to keep his emotions
in check on the job, and yet to
share freely with his wife. It
was a thin line that he had to
walk. If he didn't, as a
training officer told him as a
recruit, he could lose either
his life or his wife.
Because the producers
used police departments as
consultants, the film achiev-
es a degree of accuracy not
normally found in commerci-

Certified Public Account-
ant, Leonard Costin, gave the
Kiwanis Club a glimpse at
what to expect in the way of
changes as they make out
their income tax this year
and keep tax exemptions
records for fiscal year 1985,
Tuesday at the regular meet-
ing of the club.
Costin said this year there
has been some changes in.
medical deductions, depreci-
ation schedules for real es-
tate investments and tax
liability immediately on mer-
chandise sold on monthly


installments.
.The speaker went on to
alert the audience for keep-
ing records for paying fiscal
1985 taxes next April 15.
Some of the'biggest changes
were in the areas of tax
shelters and claiming travel
and entertainment expenses
as a tax exempt expenditure.
"Tax shelters. must be
registered with the federal
government if you plan to use
them for tax benefits in
1985", the speaker said. He
pointed out the tax shelter is
still a legitimate deduction,


MICROWAVE .,


Microwave Shortcuts


Microwaving is a real shortcut but some recipes simply
require conventional cooking. However, the. microwave can
be used to cut steps in preparation for conventionally prepar-
ing most any recipe.
Look for new ways in your everyday cooking to save
sytepsoijniditig tugraimrp gyKevlT ggtyou started. here are
just a few shortcut suggestions listed below. Then try the Hot
Clam Dip developed by the Banquet Foods Test.Kitchens, a
great recipe and a real microwave shortcut.
Precook ground beef or sausage in-the microwave for.
use in dips or other recipes.
Warm the yeast mixture, using the microwave oven, to
speed the rising process of yeast breads. (Check your
microwave owner's manual for specific instructions).
: Microwave long cooking vegetables such as potatoes or
carrots for stews or meat dishes to shorten total conventional
cooking time.
Microwave sauces for casseroles that are to be con-
ventionally baked.
- Prepare the basic sauce for souffles in the microwave.
Melt caramels or chocolate chips to be used in conven-
tionally baked cookies or bars.
Soften butter or cream cheese for any conventional
recipe in the microwave.
Hot Clam Dip
1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese
1 can (6 oz.) minced clams, drained
Y4 cup milk
2 tablespoons chopped pimento'
1 tablespoon instant minced onion
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon horseradish sauce
1 package (12 oz.) Banquet Breaded Chicken Drum-

In 1-quart microwave-safe bowl, place -cream cheese.
Heat on HIGH, 30 seconds to 1 minute or until softened. Stir in
clams, milk, pimento, onion, lemon juice and horseradish

but it must be registered with
the government before it can
be used.
In keeping car and busi-
ness entertainment records,
Costin said more explicit
records will be required in
1985, mainly in the area of
car expense. "Claims for car
expense exemptions must be
backed up by a log of car
usage by the operator. You
will be able to take only those
miles involved in business
travel from your taxes".
Costin went on to point out
the business mileage must be
verified by. an actual daily
log of travel. Mileage spent
going to and from work, or
home for dinner, will not be
counted as a legitimate ve-
hicle operation expense. All
money spent for entertain-
ment must also be verified by
receipts and reports.
A plus for the current tax
filer is that he may still claim
IRA deposits on his 1984 tax
exemptions, if they are made
by no later than April 15,
1985.

.Now that cooler weather
has arrived, many of you
have probably given some
thought to making changes
in your landscape. In any
type of landscape develop-
ment, maintenance is a very
important consideration.
This phase of landscaping is
often overlooked in many
ambitious landscape designs
planned for maximum ef-
fect.
'Design and arrangement
should not be too fancy. Use-
less curves, odd-shaped
flower beds and hedges only
add to confusion and to
maintenance work.
Avoid a scattered arrange-
ment of beds, shrubs, trees
and garden features. Every
object in the garden should
have some reason for being
there. Spotty design is diffi-
cult to maintain. Group plan-
tings of shrubs and flowers
4re more attractive and
much easier to care for.
j The choice of plant
Qiaterial will definitely af-
fect the maintenance work.
,Native material requires
less upkeep. Try to choose
,ome slow griwng and dwarf
type shrubs, particularly for
small properties because
pruning of the shrubs can
become quite a job.
Present-day gardeners are
using less of the clipped-
hedge type of plant such as
ligustrum, privet an' bar-
berry. Dwarf yaupon, azalea
and holly are some shrubs
which require minimum of
pruning.
A walkway that is flush
with the ground with no edg-
ing material is much easier
to maintain than one that has
a flower border 6r some
other low-edging material.


L


More maintenance is re-
quired for flowers on a
square foot basis than for
any other plant in the gar-
den. However, flowers are
usually the most desired
plant in the landscape
because of color. Select
flowering plants such as day-
lilies which have minimum
maintenance requirements.
Flower beds can be edged
with bricks or flat stones
that are sunk into the ground
to allow a tract for the lawn
mower wheels. Grass in a
flower bed is a nuisance,
especially the running
grasses such as Bermuda
and centipede.
A mulch will help keep
down weed growth, conserve
moisture and save work.
It is very easy t6 take in
too much lawn area, espec-
ially for homeowners in
rural areas. Never overex-
tend your capabilities. A
small, well-kept lawn is
much better than acres of
weed growth.
The variety of lawn grass
and its rate of growth will in-
fluence mowing, fertiliza-
tion, irrigation, weed and
pest control, and develop-
ment of thatch. Lawn
grasses which make the best
lawns may require the most
care and should not be
planted unless proper
maintenance is intended.
-Structural materials in the
landscape may. require
periodic maintenance. A
concrete patio or walk will
not need maintenance for 12
to 15 years, whereas asphalt
drives or walks should be
sealed every 2 years.
Painted wood structures and
fences need repainting every
3 to 4 years. However, wood
suited for outdoor use can be
bleached or stained with a
preservative, or allowed to


landscape

weather naturally. Such
treatment usually lasts for
the 20 year life span of the
structure. The choice of
stain, paint, or other finish
will. dramatically affect how
much maintenance will be


Design
needed over the life of the
structure.
Design and plant your
yard to be enjoyed, and not
to be a continuous job of
pruning, watering, spraying,
mowing and weed pulling.

Pecan Crop Is


Not Consistent


BY ROY LEE CARTER
County Extension Director
The pecan is one of the
most important tree crops
grown in the South and
makes a beautiful dooryard,
tree. It belongs to the Jug-
3andaceae family along with
the hickories and black wal-
nuts, but in a separate genus.
My information for this arti-
cle was provided by Exten-
sion Fruit and Nut Specialist
Dr. Tim Crocker, of the
University of Florida's Insti-
tute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences.
Perhaps the most vexing
problem with pecans is their
tendency to bear heavy crops
some years, and very little or
hno "--op during others. There
is also a tendency for many


nuts to be poorly filled.
Several factors enter into
these two problems. The
pecan requires large
amounts of food, which is
produced by the leaves, for
kernel formation or "filling"
in the late summer and early
fall just prior to leaf drop.
When crops ,are excessively
heavy, there is not enough
food to fill the nuts, the shell
of which formed much earli-
er. Also, since there is no
foqd reserve left to form
flower buds in the following
spring,.a light crop results.
Thus, it is highly important
that leaf surfaces remain
undamaged during the grow-
ing season and into the fall to.
produce the' maximum
amount of food for the

Vernon In Sixth Overtime; Defeat Bay High


Sharks Off and Running On Court


BASKETBALL
Port St. Joe's basketball Sharks may
have been late starting their current season
because of so many players being involved
in the state football championship competi-
tion, but when they came on the hardwood
court; they hit the floor running.
The Sharks came into the cage season
with a little less than two weeks practice and
three holiday tournament games under their
elastic waist bands last Friday night, when
they invaded the Vernon gym. Invading the
Vernon gym is about as much as a good
team can handle, but the Sharks played
what was probably the best game to come
out of the current season, slugging it out
with the Yellow Jackets in a full game and
six overtime periods. When the dust had
settled and the smoke had cleared, the
Jackets, with 13 regular season games of
experience in the current season, nudged
the Sharks in their first regular season
outing, 86-84 after those six overtime periods
were finished.
The point is, any team which can play
its first game of the season, against a
Vernon team, in a Vernon gym and come
that close to winning, has to have potential
for the year.
Area daily newspapers said "Vernon
survived" six overtimes last Friday to
defeat the Sharks. The word "survived" is
the key because it says the Sharks came
within a hair of defeating the tough Yellow,
Jackets. In fact, the Sharks had the biggest
lead of the game-nine points-in the last
quarter, when the Jackets struggled back


maturing nuts and the follow-
ing year's flowers. There are,
many diseases, insects and
mites that may damage the
leaves sufficiently to cause
poor filling and flowering. A
fall flush of new leaves is also
very damaging because this
requires food that would
otherwise be used for nut and
flower formation. New
leaves do not mature soon
enough to produce sufficient
food to compensate for that
used in their formation.
Damage to the green shuck
of the pecan by such pests as
suck-worm or scab may
result in poor filling even
though a good leaf surface is
present. Cultivars suscepti-
ble to; scab should not be
planted. Erratic or alternate
bearing can be held to a
minimum through proper
pest control and other cul-
tural programs.
The pecan is somewhat
unique in its production of
female flowers on the tips of
new shoots, and male flowers
or catkins on the old wood. If,
as is sometimes the case,
male flowers produce pollen
at a time when female
flowers are not mature, the
failure to pollinate results in
little or no crop. However,
lack of pollination is seldom a


and tied the score with 27 seconds left in the
regulation game. Vernon's Kelvin Peterson
started the marathon of overtime periods
with a 15-foot jumper to knot the score, 55-55
.at the end-of regulation time.
Last second heroics by members of both
teams, tied the score again in the five
overtime periods before the Jackets finally
wound up with a two point margin in the
sixth arid final extra vPriod..
Don Brown kept the marathon going at
the end of the first overtime by bucketing a
10-foot jumper with three seconds left, to tie
the game again. In the second, it was two
foul; shots by Michael Pittman with eight
seconds remaining, who sent them into the
third. Two foul shots by Demetre Thomas
with two seconds remaining in the fifth, sent
the contest, into'the record-breaking sixth
overtime. I
The game, which lasted for two hours
and 25 minutes, was packed with excitement
after the third period. Up until this time, the
Sharks were definitely in. control, but the
Sharks' first line players began to collect
fouls and the Jackets took advantage of it.
Before the game was over, Durey Cadwell
and Doug Robinson, Port St. Joe's height,
had both fouled out. They were followed by
hustling Josh Jenkins. Two Vernon players,
Robert Davis and Marcus Bland also had to
sit down because of five fouls.
The Sharks had out-scored the "Jackets,
40-34 in' the first three periods, but the loss of
the tall men in the final stanza allowed the
Jackets to creep up and tie the game.


Michael Pittman's 32 points was high
for both teams. The Sharks had three more
scoring in double figures. Dexter Baxter had
13. Demetre Thomas, 11 and Josh Jenkins,
10.
Brown, who won the game for the
Jackets, also scored the most points for the
Jackets, chalking up 28 for the evening.
Marcus Bland and Willie Potter each added
15 and Sean Green hit for 17.

The seed package said "Just Right" turnip seeds, so
Claude Adams decided to try them and see just how right
they were. Not all of them grew this big, but Mr. Adams had
five to grow to the approximate size of the one he's holding,
which weighed in at 52 pounds. Not all of the success should
be given to the seeds though, because many of the crops Mr.

Welcome to Everyone


The First Session of the 99th
Congress has convened and I
am honored to have again been
selected by my Democratic col-
leagues to serve as Chairman of
the House Committee on
Science and Technology. With
heightened interest in research
this post becomes even more
important than before and I am
proud to serve in this capacity.
The Electoral College votes
have been counted and we have
reaffirmed that President
Reagan was elected. Now Con-
gress will await the formal
ceremony inaugurating Presi-
dent Reagan and Vice President
Bush for another term and the
President's State of the Union
Address.
It will also be critically impor
tant to study the President's
budget which I hope will ad
dress the massive deficit prob-
lems we face as a nation. We
must take strong action to
reduce government spending
and the President should sound
the call in his budget message.
The American people expect
Congress and the President to
work together to reduce spend-
ing, and bipartisan cooperation
must be the watchword.
*

William P. Clark has served
as an advisor and confidante of
President Reagan for many
years, dating back to the days
when Mr. Reagan was Gover-
nor of California. It was,
therefore, somewhat surprising
when he announced that he
would be resigning as Secretary
of the Interior and returning to


California.
Clark has served the Presi-
dent in a number of capacities
over. the years and there was
much speculation that he might
be in line for another White
House post or a federal
judgeship. Clark has ruled these
out and chosen to leave govern-
ment service.
Among those being con-
sidered for the Interior Depart-
ment job is Congressman
Manuel Lujan of New Mexico
who now serves as Ranking
Minority. Member qf the
Science and Technology Com-
mittee. Regardless of "who is
chosen, the new Secretary
faces some difficult decisions .
We have not yet -ade 'final
determinations on offshore
leasing and these questions are
vital for a number of reasons.
As we strive to edid our
dependence on foreign oil, we
have discovered the possibility
of large deposits off our'shores.
Many coastline areas are af
fected, including the Gulf of
Mexico off the Florida coast.
I have been active in the
effort to draw the lines.to insure
that fishing areas are free from
the prospect of oil spills, par
ticularly important in'areas such
as Gulf and Franklin Cpunties.
Further, we had to insure
that the rocket trajectory path
off Cape Canaveral is protected,
as well as military flight zones
near Panama City and;Pensa-
cola.
Hopefully the new Secretary
will already have a working
knowledge of these problems
so that we will not have to start
all over again.

Heart
Association

Eat more,.if you exercise
It's possible to eat more but weigh less, if you exercise.
That's what Dr. Peter Wood, professor of medicine (research)
at Stanford University, said at a recent American Heart
Association symposium. "Physically active people tend to eat
more, maybe several hundred calories more per day than
sedentary people, and yet they weigh less in the process, he
said.
Dr. Wood and his colleagues have studied Sanford faculty
wives who play at least 10 hours of singles tennis per week, and
compared them with sedentary faculty wives of similar ages.
"The sedentary women were considerably more overweight
.than the tennis players," he said. "When we had both groups
record what they were eating, there was a large difference in
the recorded intake of calories. The tennis players were
definitely not dieting but were lean, while the sedentary
women were eating very modestly yet were relatively
overweight."
The Stanford
University research-
ers also have studied 4
.14 sedentary men 7 ""J
:who agreed to grad- A -. i
ually build up their .
exercise level until
they were running 13
miles per week. The
scientists followed
their progress as
they maintained that
exercise level for two
years. "Even though
their food intake in-
creased, their body
fat decreased," he said. "The amount of fat they lost was
rather nicely' related to how much running they achieved. So
becoming active tends to make people lean."
Physically active individuals also are known to have a
lower risk of heart disease. Active people may receive some
protection from both their leaness and from their muscular
contractions during exercise, he continued. "Several groups of
researchers are doing studies right now that should show
, which of these two effects is most beneficial."
-: Dr. Wood said his findings help explain a surprising but lit-
tle known fact: people who eat more tend to have less coronary
heart disease. At least four studies have measured calorie in-
take and followed individuals over a period of years to see
what relationship eating has with development of heart
disease. He said: "In all four studies, those people who
developed heart disease had reported many years earlier a
significantly lower calorie intake than those who did not get
heart disease. I think the explanation is that people who eat
more.are often more physically active."
Dr. Wood emphasizes that he is not recommending an in-
creased calorie intake for individuals who are overweight and
don't plan to exercise. But for the millions of Americans who
have joined the "exercise explosion" that began in the 1960's,
eating more calories, especially in the form of carbohydrates,
won't stop them from staying lean, he concludes.

Benefits Paid Keep Families Together


The "Smith" family you
will meet is fictional, but the
example is more common
than you think. You will see
how several generations in a
family can benefit from
Social Security which pro-
vides basic protection when
there is a loss of income due
to retirement, disability, or
death.
First meet Bill who will
retire at 65 in 1985. He was
only 15 when the Social
Security Act became law in
1935 and was among the first
to pay Social Security taxes
in 1937. He paid maximum
taxes each year through
1984 for a total of $21,860. In
less than 29 months, he'll get
back in benefits an amount
equal to this; in addition, his
wife Irma will get checks.


Bill and Irma also have
Medicare protection and can
look forward to cost-of-living
benefit increases to keep
pace with inflation. And since
they have no other income
besides their benefits and
savings, they do not have to
pay Federal income tax on
their Social Security bene-
fits.
Bill's father died when Bill
was young and his mother
worked to raise the family.
She retired in 1960 and got
Social Security payments for
19 years until her death *in
1979.
Now meet. Bill's grandfa-
ther who was among the first
to receive retirement checks
45 years ago when they were
-first paid in 1940. He and his
wife i'eceived payments until

his death in 1947, and she

There's more to the story.
Bill's daughter Sandra is a
city planner with a husband
and three children. Her ca-
reer was interrupted three
yvars ago when she had a bad
accident at age 40 and
couldn't work for two years.
During that time, she and her
children were paid Social
Security checks because of
her disability.

pays into Social Security,
knowing that his family is
protected should he have a
loss of income due to disabili-
ty or death.
Obviously, not all families
will have this many genera-
tions who have benefited
directly from Social Securi-
ty. But it is not uncommon
for at least three generations
to have received checks. In
addition, there are many
other relatives who have
received benefits.
An important point to keep
in mind is this: Social
Security provides four kinds


of insurance protection in one
comprehensive package that
could not be purchased else-
where for a similar price.
The benefits paid keep fami-
lies together, provide people
with a sense of security and
independence, and reduce


the need for others to provide
for their needs when there is
a loss of income.
For more information
about the program, contact
any Social Security office.
The people there will be glad
to help you.

ADJUSTMENTS
Q. Does eyeglass slippage
affect vision?
A. The power of your lenses
and the size of the images
you see will be affected by
glasses that do not sit pro-
perly on the bridge of
your fiose.. If you are far-
sighted, slippage in-
creases the power of the
lenses and the size of the
images. If you are near-
sighted, slippage de-
creases the power of your
lenses and reduces the
size of images.
Misalignment of your
glasses is caused by nor-
mal wear, as well as by
mishandling or accidents.
Glasses that leave marks
on .your face, slip down
your nose, become un-
even, or hurt behind the
ears need an adjustment.
Eyeglass frames are
generally made of
materials which are
pliable. Temples can be
benti- nosepieces can be
stretched or tightened. It
is not wise, however, to
make these adjustnients
yysoel. 'TlI y6ur 1p-

Learn to

Do It Yourself


Many spend hours in pre-
paration for gift giving. They
go from place to place and
sometimes city to city just to
get that special gift during
the yuletide season.
Much of this time can be
eliminated simply by en-
rolling in the Adult Institute


Woodworking classes. The
teacher, Carl White, Sr.
made this lovely child's
wooden rocker. It was a gift
any young child would love to
own. If you are 'interested in
Woodworking, contact Mr.
White or James Mclnnis at
the Adult Institute.


Gulf Elementary

According to information
released this week by School
Superintendent Walter Wild-
er, the Southern Association
of Colleges and Schools,
through its Commission on
Elementary. Schools, has
awarded continuing accredi-
tation to all Gulf County
elementary schools by action
taken during the Associa-
tion's 89th Annual Meeting in.
Atlanta, December 8-12, 1984.
Citizens are assured of
accountability and of value
for their tax dollars through
the process of standard set-
ting and the regular reeval-
uation of SACS member
institutions. Communities
with accredited schools can
le confident that their insti-
tutions compare favorably
with others in the region.
Accredited schools ,are a
"plus" for those who are
interested in relocating their
families and businesses.

G&FC Is

Recruiting
The slogan "We're Looking
for a Few Good Men and
Women" may be synony-
mous with the Marine Corps
but it also aptly fits the
Wildlife Reserve program of
the Florida Game and Fresh
Water Fish Commission
(GFC).
.Reservists, as they're
known, are non-paid volun-
teers who work along, side
GFC employees in all phases
of the job.
They perform such tasks
as operating wildlife man-'
agement check stations, ac-
companying a wildlife officer
on patrol, making turkey
brood surveys in the spring of
the year, and assisting fish-
eries biologists in sampling
fish populations.
To be considered for the
reserve program, a person
must beTt least 19 years of
age, be a high school gradu-
ate or possess a G.E.D.,
never have been convicted of
a felony or misdemeanor
involving "moral turpitude"
and pass a physical examina-
tion.
Each reservist must pass a
written entrance examina-
tion and oral interview be-
fore their selection. They
also are required to buy their.
own uniforms, provide their
own transportation, and oc-
casionally purchase indivi-
dual equipment.
Both men and women,
especially retirees, are need-
ed in the reserve program
due to the assistance often
needed during weekdays.
Interested persons should
contact Sgt. Walt Meggison
at the GFC's Panama City
office at 1-800-342-1676.
