Have Pets Innoculated


Another Rabid Raccoon


Destroyed L

State laboratory tests last Thursday
confirmed the second case of Rabies in
south Gulf County in the past six months.
A rabid raccoon was killed after a fight
with Joey Raffield's dog in the Cape San
Bias Deadman's Curve area.
Fortunately, Raffield's dog had been
vaccinated, and required only a booster
inoculation, but still must be confined
for a 90 day observation period.
The first rabid raccoon of 1984 was
killed in the area of Oak Grove, about six
miles from this latest case. Needless to

say, pet owners should become more
concerned as raccoons.venture more and
more into populated areas.
On Friday, February 1, a low-cost
rabies shot clinic will be held at the side
door of the Gulf County Public Health
Unit, 401 Long Avenue (across the street
from the telephone company) from 5:00
p.m. until 6:00 p.m. Dr. Tim Nelson,
D.V.M. will provide the innoculation for a
$4.00 fee.

uel, the county's.. project
supervisor said this week.
"We have our system
practically completed and
are now installing customer
meters all through the sys-
tem", Manuel said, "But the
system still has to be steriliz-
ed, flushed, pressure tested
and the system be accepted
by the designing engineers
and Farmers' Home Admin-
istration.before we can begin
supplying water", Manuel
said. Manuel also said he
didn't see any problems
down the road with these
several inspections and felt
the system would be passed
with flying colors.
"We have a good system
here. The installation work
has been well done and I see
no problems with meeting
our requirements so we can
begin pumping water
through the system to our
customers", he said.
Manuel said there is no
water in the system at this


time. "We must sterilize the
lines before we can even
make the pressure test by
putting .water in the lines",
he said. Manuel said some
customers at the Beach
might cause them more
trouble at passing the neces-
sary tests than some default
in the lines might. "Some
customers are already hook-
ing to the line themselves and
they could cause us trouble.
At any rate, the customers
will have to be un-hooked
from the system by the
contractor before the tests
can. be made", .the project
manager said.
Another problem is that
customers will have to re-
move any connection of their
home system with individual
supplies, such as pumps,
before they can be hooked to
the water. "State rules do
not .allow a central system
and-a private pump system
to be hooked up into the same
distribution system", Man-


uel said. "We'll have to be
very careful about this", he
said.
Those people who go ahead
and hook to the meter, are
only delaying rather speed-
ing up the operation. "We're
making a request this week
for all who have already
hooked up to the system, to
remove the connection until
all our tests have been
approved", Manuel said.
"All connections not part of
the system (on the property-
owner's side of the meter)
will be cut loose prior to
inspection procedures", he
pointed out. 7
Manuel, who is also the
county building inspector,
said a permit would be
required to hook the water
system up to their property.
He pointed out there would be
no charge for the permit to
those who have already paid
their hook-up fee to the
system.
In addition to the installa-


2or3


tion of individual meters,
work will also be getting
underway this week on
patching streets where they
have been cut for the in-
stallation of lines. "Likely,
the first cuts to .receive
repairs will be the intersec-
tions of main roads with
Highway 98", Manuel said.


Weeks
Side streets will get their
patchwork after the main
roads have been repaired
and accepted by the county.
Manuel said all cuts would
probably be patched with
cement to make the repair
more permanent than if they
were done with clay and
asphalt.


Concrete ramps and stanchions for heavy machinery are about 60 percent.completed at
the new solid waste compacting station being built on Industrial Road in a joint venture by the


.

county and the City of Port St. Joe. The facility will handle all solid waste for the southern end
of the county, preparing it for transfer to the landfill site at Buckhorn. -Star photo


Solid Waste Transfer Station


Gulf County's new solid waste compac-
tor is about 45 percent complete, according
to project inspector, E. F. Gunn this week,
a. the structure of the installation started
rising above the ground.
"We're a little over half through with
the preparation work for the compactor
machinery", Gunn said, "Then we'll take
delivery on the big packing machine which
will cost about $100,000 and take considera-
able expertise in handling to get in place
correctly."
Gunn said the Ylant should be in
operation in about twoinonths. The project
was started in November of last year, when
the Department of Environmental Regula-
tion gave the county a permit of operation


and gave the county a year to build the
installation.
A joint project of Gulf County and the
City of Port St. Joe, the station is designed to
accept all solid waste from the south end of
the county, compacted in a special trailer
and then trucked to the Buckhorn landfill
site and buried.
Gunn said the local plant will be of a 100
tons per day capacity, "But we'll only
produce about 10 tons a day in solid waste. It
may go a little higher in the summer time
when the beach community is filled up."
Gunn said the big compactor trailer will
accept up to 40,000 pounds of solid waste,
necessitating a trip to the Buckhorn site
"every three or four days", Gunn said.


The compactor trailer is especially built
for the operation here and is capable of
unloading itself when it reaches the landfill
site.
The compactor will accept almost
anything "except old automobile tires and
large trees or tree limbs", Gunn said.
"Some other provisions are going to have to
be made for these items", he said.
The County and City will keep personnel
at the compactor station to see that only
acceptable items and material in an
acceptable size is placed into the compactor
once it is in operation.
The compactor site is the final answer
as to what to do with solid waste generated
in south Gulf County after the DER notified


Progress

the county several years ago, it was going to
have to do 'something else with its solid
waste. DER refused to give operational
permits for several sites which. were
selected as replacement sites for the old
landfill areas. Finally, DER advised the
county the water table was entirely too low
in south Gulf to operate an acceptable land
fill site. The compactor station is the.
county's alternative.
Once the compactor station goes into
operation, the landfill site on Industrial
Road--on the opposite side of the road to the
compactor station-will be closed down and
dumping at the site will be prohibited.
The compactor station is being built by
I-C Contractors of Panama City.


Maintenance dredging of
the basin, navigation channel
and harbor entrance to St.
Joseph Bay is on the U.S.
Corps of Engineers dredging
program. this year and the
Corps started the process of
getting the necessary per-
mits to perform the dredging
operations this week in a
bulletin sent out by the
Corps' Mobile, Alabama of-
fice.
This portion of he project
is to repair silting and filling
of the entrance channel to St.
Joseph Bay. The entrance.
channel was dredged four
years ago, after a gigantic
struggle to get permission for
dumping the spoil in a
certain spot in the Bay
adjacent to the dredged area.
At the time, the Corps
wanted to place the spoil on
the tip of the peninsula where
it had historically been plac-
ed for years in the past, but


the Department of Natural
-Resources vetoed the plan
and the alternative was to
place the spoil in what is


known locally as "The Shark
Hole".

Roberson Takes Over At

St. Joe Container Plant
In a shake-up of .management at St. Joe. Container
Company's Port St. Joe plant last week, Ralph Roberson
was. named general manager of the plant, effective on
Monday of this week.
Roberson, formerly of Port St. Joe, has been with St.
Joe Paper Company and St. Joe Container for 10 years in
several capacities.
After attending Florida State University, Roberson
graduated from the University of West Florida with his
Certified Public Accountant degree in 1977. He spent four
years with St. Joe's mill division in accounting prior to
transferring to the Container Division. He has spent the
past six years in Lake Wales, spending the past two years
as sales manager for that plant. Prior to being appointed
sales manager, Roberson served as controller of the plant
for four years.
The new plant manager is married and he and his wife,
Margaret have two sons. Roberson says he will be moving
his family to Port St. Joe just as soon as he can sell his
Lake Wales home and find a home here in Port St. Joe.



Wewa Man Jailed

On Sexual Charge


A Wewahitchka man is.
still lodged in Gulf County's
jail this week, after being
arrested last Thursday on a
charge of sexual battery,
according to Sheriff Al Har-
rison.
Chief Deputy Mike White
said Dallas Presley, Sr., had
been arrested, and faced
charges of sexual battery on
' several juvenile females.
White said the defendant
apparently used alcoholic
beverages and drugs to en-
tice his victims to perform
the alleged sexual acts with


him.
"After the arrest, we se-
cured a search warrant for
Presley's home and found a
quantity of pornographic pic-
tures and drugs inside. Some
of the pictures had been
made locally and others were
cut from magazines and
books", White said.
The Deputy said the inves-
tigation revealed that the
conduct with which Presley
is charged is suspected to
have been practiced for at
least two years and possibly

In Wewahitchka


Citizens Federal Plans Branch


Citizens Federal Savings and
Loan Association this week called for
the public to file any objections they
might have to the local savings and
loan association establishing a branch
office in Wewahitchka.
The Association already has one
branch office in Apalachicola.
Eddie Creamer, manager of the
Port St. Joe office of the firm, said
they are asking the Federal Home
Loan Bank Board for permission to
establish a branch office to be located
at or near the intersection of Highway
71 and Highway 22 in Wewahitchka.
If the permission is granted,


Citizens Federal will be the first Port
St. Joe financial institution to estab-
lish an office in the north end of the
county. The Wewahitchka based
Wewahitchka State Bank established
a branch office in Port St. Joe a few
years ago.
The application with the Federal
Home Loan Bank requires the appli-
cant to publicly ask for any objections
or endorsements of the branch office
to be sent to the FHLBB within 10 days
to be considered in making the
decision about whether or not to grant
the application.


Creamer said, "We're already
making home loans in the Wewa-
hitchka area and feel the location of a-
branch office in the city will enable us:
to serve our customers up there better--
and do a better job in the Blountstown:
area". Creamer said the association
is allowed by rules governing savings
and loan banks,.to make loans within
a radius of 100 miles.
A legal advertisement on page
seven of this week's issue of The Star
gives particulars about how oppon-
ents or proponents may file their input
with the Home Loan Bank Board.

Tramps Live Here?


It seems like almost every
: community, city and metropolis in
the Panhandle is bothered by an
excess of garbage and trash being
thrown on the road rights of way
-these days.
Almost every newspaper in the
'Panhandle is moaning over the fact
that more and more trash and filth
.is showing up in more and more
':.places almost every day. In our
area, we're all familiar with the
current campaign by the Panama
City paper, trying to get people to
clean up their city and keep it
clean.
If you take a drive in or out of
Port St. Joe in any direction you
can see plenty to make you fume
over the slovenliness of people.
They toss their trash everywhere
and anywhere. No place is sacred
ground when it comes to throwing
down trash. We all notice it more
now because the grass and weeds
beside the road have all been killed
by the cold, leaving the trash lying
5 in stark evidence to our untidyness.
l-.Gulf County and Port St. Joe


Law Applie
The Wewahitchka group, head-
5 ed by Charles Bostick say they
would not have the county put into
court on the question of whether or
= not to install the single member
j district plan here in Gulf County.
; We agree with their thinking in this
matter.
Nevertheless, we cannot agree
j with Mri'. Bostick's request that the
| County Commission take the only
R steps to keep us out of court and
litigation by declaring that the
county will adopt the system of
5 selecting County Commissioners
solely because Bostick and his
group of Blacks want it done. Such
actions are against state law-even
-state law whicrhas been- amended .
to accommodate -such -demands



Public Opini
A New York Grand Jury has
said Bernard Goetz did not commit
murder when he shot four young
men who tried to rob him in the
New York City subway in early
December. Goetz was only protect-
ing himself, the Jury ruled, adding
their decision to that opinion
already formed by the vast major-
ity of the people all over the nation.
Add to that instance, the
failure of the City of Chicago to
press charges against an elderly
ian who shot a young hoodlum
trying to rob him on a Chicago
street ,as he carried his groceries


together don't have enough people
hired to keep all the trash picked up
if every employee did nothing
except gather up the debris which
is lying everywhere.
We have said it here before,
and we're saying it again: the only
way we're going to keep our
surroundings clean and tidy look-
ing is for each one of us to become
conscious of the need for cleanli-
ness and try to keep our neighbor-
hood clean. It's too big a job for
your city or your county. It's too
big a job for any one organization.
When you add up all our trashy
areas, you can see we have a pile of
it to remove and keep removed.
If everyone of us keeps our
little nook of the world clean and if
we admonish those we see tossing
trash on the ground or in the street
not to do so, we can keep our city
clean.
If we don't do these things, our
city and our county are going to
continue looking like tramps live
here; and it's going to get worst as
time goes along.

throughout the~state. If the County
Commission were to break the law
in this manner, there is no doubt,
then, but what we would find
ourselves in court. Who knows;
even the advocates of single
member districts may take the
Commission to court because they
had not made the change in a legal
manner.
If the law is written, it does not
mean we can break it just because
it suits the whims of some of us
when we do break it. The law
governs for a reason: because it is
the best for the majority.
The law prescribes specifically
how the method of choosing our

ed. It's very specific. / ..

home, and you 'get an indication
that the nation's sympathies are,
finally turning toward the victim of'
crimes and not the perpetrator.
It was plain to see that public
opinion was with both the elderly
man and with Goetz. So long as
public opinion is aimed in this
direction, we believe it will do more
to solve the growing crime rate
than the re-activation of the
electric chair, mandated jail sen-
tences or bigger prisons. There's
nothing like solid, expressed public
opinion to get things done even
control the crime rate.

I didn't have time for idle
chit-chat, Loretta Lynn was
a'fixin to be on T.V. The
molten hot lava was a

toward the big, fancy hotel
when I changed the channel.
We were in luck as we got
all of the sound and about

Sthe American Music Awards
and I'd certainly never heard
of the Special Merit Award
that Loretta won that night,
but I can guarantee you
this- she deserved it.
I have been in love with
Loretta Lynn since 1963. I
can remember the first time
I heard her sing like it was


"even more country than I
was. I mean she didn't even
have to try to'be country!
In 1968 I1 had a summer job
working at the National Life
and Accident Insurance
Company in Nashville, Ten-
nessee. National Life owned
WSM Radio which owned the
Grand Ole Opry. Are you still
with me and can you see
- where we're headed? About
the second week I was there I
asked about doing a little
extra work over at the Opry
on Saturday nights. Those
nice folks at National Life got
me a job at the Grand Ole
Opry.
In the summer of '68 I met
Loretta Lynn. I thought I had
died and gone to heaven. I
was at the Opry for 13 weeks
and I saw and met many of
the country music stars. I


About the 4th week I got up
enough courage to 'speak to
her. I told her she looked nice
and I loved her. She thanked
me and said, "You ain't
looking too bad yourself".
Loretta Lynn said ain't! And
you know, that's the reason
that I'm still in love with her.
She has always remained one
of us. Now, she won't remem-
ber me from Adam's house
cat, but I'll never forget the
summer that she always had
a smile and a kind greeting
for me. She acted more
"country" than "star". Boy
howdy, could a lot of people
in our world take a lesson
from that.
My boys, out of respect,
were even quiet while Loret-
ta was on. Soon as she went
off we went back to the
thrilling adventure "Earth's

picture switching back, but
we lost the sound completely.
It didn't matter 'cause we
still got to see the hotel burn

We Didn't Want to Do What You Can't Find to Do InPort St. Joe, Anyhow!


A LADY CALLED the other day,
disturbed about something she said
she had read in the paper not our
paper; the Panama City News-Her-
ald. The lady said she had read
something on the editorial page of the
News-Herald about Port St. Joe,
which disturbed her.
The lady disagreed with what.was
written, needless to say and wanted us
to take the subject matter to task. The
subject of the piece she had read was,
in effect, that there's nothing to do
here in Port St. Joe.
J1 don't know whether or not a Port
St. Joe resident wrote the article or
whether it was an editorial written by
News-Herald editors. I haven't had
the time to look the article up and read
it. Our caller apparently assumed like
others assume, if it was in the paper,
--especially on the editorial page-it
was an editorial, written by and
expressing the opinion of the news-
paper's editors. Not everything in the
paper--ours or others-is necessarily
the viewpoint of the editor. In some
cases, the articles are not even
written by the editor, but by others. In
the case of letters to the editor, which


are almost universally placed on the
editorial page, the subject matter
contained in the article may not even
be the philosophy of the editor. He
may be opposed to the subject being


paid type recreation opportunities
here in Port St. Joe, but-there is plenty
to keep everyone busy and their time
occupied, if they have a desire to stay
busy and enjoy themselves.

esley R. Ramsey


I have a few tools at home and
enjoy fooling with things like cutting
up some expensive boards and ending
up with something definitely amateur-
ish, or taking something apart and
usually failing to find what is wrong
with it. Still, it's therapy taking it
apart. I like to do these things, but
.there isn't enough time in the day to
get into either of the activities. If I
can't squeeze it in on a Saturday
morning, I don't get into'i,. All my


things I am involved in and things
necessary to get done, there isn't
much time left to read.
I'm saying all this to say, there is
plenty to do in Port St. Joe, if you'll
just do it.
I'M NOT SORRY that none of us
has the time to go hunting muggers in
the subway.
If we were a city with plenty to do,
including ride the subways and hunt


muggers to shoot, I'm afraid the
muggers would multiply like rats
around here. Hardly anybody who will
do things has the time to hunt
muggers in subways on top of their
other activities.
Of course, living in a city without
a subway means we don't have
clubs, nudie revues, pornographic,
theatres, public prostitutes, organized
crime operated bookie joints, pool
halls, or clip joints.
We must settle for things like high
school sports, PTA, church, civic
clubs, neighborly pursuits, yard work,
hobbies, aerobics and exercise clas-
ses, charitable activities, library,
museum, parks, youth work, volun-
teer organizations, golf, fishing, walks,
boating, gardening, relaxing, visiting,
jogging, tennis, etc. It's a pity we
don't have more to do, but I still
haven't named all the activities
available.
But we don't have time to ride
subways hunting for muggers.

WE DON'T HAVE time for
seeking out people who would rob old


people of their groceries, either. In
these larger places, they're blessed
with a number of hoodlums who will
prey on the elderly. It's true, such
threats keep the elderly alert and
their senses keen, so they will be able
to cope with the situation when it
arises. Here in Port St. Joe, those old
people are cursed with being able to
get out and walk the streets at night,
during the day, in the evening, or any
other time they want to.
In this little old town with nothing
to do, the police can even find your
door open at night on a door check and
usually the reason it's open is because
you left it open.
If we lived in one of these cities
with "plenty to do", we'd know, for
sure, some criminal had broken that
door open and we would have the
opportunity to make a list of what was
stolen so we could collect on our
insurance.
It's tough living in a small town
like Port St. Joe. I just wish I had the
time to get around to doing all the
things I can find to do that I would like
to get involved in.

Copper Flag Exercise at Tyndall


Copper Flag 85-1, a Tactical Air
Command sponsored exercise hosted
by the U. S. Air Force Air Defense
Weapons Center will be held Feb. 3-16
at Tyndall Air Force Base. Copper
Flag, conducted three times a year,
brings increased flying activity to
northwest Florida.
Jet fighter and bomber aircraft
will fly from 3:30 to 9 p.m. (CST) on
Monday, 4 to 9:30 p.m. Tuesday
through Thursday, and 3 to 9 p.m.
Friday. No weekend flying is sche-
duled. Copper Flag scenarios include
a full range of air defense missions.
The exercise is designed to
provide air defense forces with
realistic training against airborne


threats to the security of the North
American continent. Aircrews, main-
tenance personnel, weapons control-
lers and! battle managers are all
involved in this test of air defense
forces.
All Copper Flag flying activities
are conducted in airspace reserved
for military operations with most of
the aircraft flying in Tyndall ranges
over the Gulf of Mexico. However,
some overland supersonic flights
above 35,000 feet and subsonic activity
at low altitude are planned. There
should be no flight activity within five
miles of towns.
The affected area for low altitude
operations is bordered by Carrabelle


General Enrollment

Period for Medicare


People who failed to sign
up for Medicare medical
insurance, or who once had
this protection but dropped
it,-will have a chance to get
this important protection
during the 1985 general en-
rollment period, January
through April 1, James W.
Tolliver, Social Security
manager in Panama City,
said recently.
Medical insurance is that
part .of Medicare that helps
pay for doctor bills, outpa-
tient hospital services, and
many other medical items
and services not covered by
hospital insurance.
Protection for people who
sign up during the general
enrollment period will start
July 1, 1985.
Medical insurance is fi-
nanced by monthly premi-
ums paid by those who have
the protection and the Fe-
deral Government from ge-
neral revenues. Presently,
the Federal Government
pays three-fourths of the
cost. The basic. monthly
premium in 1985 is $15.50.
Generally, people who sign
up during a general enroll-
ment period may pay a
higher premium, Tolliver
said. This is because the


premium is increased by 10
percent for each full year a
person could have had this
protection but did not.
More information about
, the medical insurance gener-
al enrollment period can be
obtained at the Panama City
Social Security office located
at 30 West Government
Street.


to the east, Interstate 10 to the north
and extends south over the Gulf. A line
from Tyndall, running just west of
Wewahitchka and Compass Lake, is
the western border.
Approximately 65 aircraft and 700
people will deploy to Tyndall for the
exercise.
The two-week exercise at Tyndall
is divided into two one-week scenar-
ios. At the end of the' first week,
participating units rotate personnel to
allow maximum involvement in the
exercise. Each week, units exercise
within daily scenarios that simulate
the entire spectrum of air defense
operations. Missions are structured to
provide maximum intercept training
opportunities.

Area Episcopalians Will


Attend Annual Convention


A delegation from St.
James' Church in Port St.
Joe, and St. John's in Wewa-
hitchka will be attending the
Annual Convention of the
Diocese of the Central Gulf
Coast January 31-February 2
at Trinity Church in Mobile.
The Rev. Jerry R. Huft,
Rector of.- St. James' and
Vicar of St. John's has
announced that the delegates
are Mrs. Ida Copenhaver,
Mrs. Betty Fensom and
Harold Quackenbush from
St. James', and Mrs. Roberta
Harden of St. John's.
The convention will feature
seminars on aging and hun-
ger. There will also be a
liturgical arts exhibit along
with special music for choir
and congregation.
The delegates will attend a
dinner on Friday evening at
the Riverview Plaza. The


theme for the dinner is
"Southern Serenade". Music
from the big band decade will
be presented for listening
pleasure. The guest speaker
for the event will be the Rt.
Rev. Furman Strough, Bi-
shop of Alabama.
The business of the church
will be conducted in several
sessions on each of the three
days of convention. The
sessions will be punctuated
by The Holy Eucharist, Com-
mon Prayer, and rich fellow-
ship.
Delegates to convention
represent the rich variety of
congregations to the diocese.
Though Episcopalians repre-
sent the broad spectrum of
American culture, several
things unite them.
Episcopalians share a
common faith with other
Christians, in Jesus Christ as


Lord of their lives. They see
themselves as heirs and
guardians of the Apostolic
Faith. They have an appre-
ciation for the traditional,
historic values in worship.
And they feel a sense of
responsibility to society and
future generations to share
the Gospel. Visitors and
guests are always welcome.

CARD OF THANKS
We wish to thank all of the
friends who were so gracious
in offering their condolences,
prayers and gifts of food in
our time of loss.

CONTACT LENS
SOLUTIONS
Contact lens solutions are
essential for the successful
wearing of all soft contact
lenses. They are used:
to store lenses
to lubricate and rewet
lenses
to remove lenses
to rinse lenses
for disinfection of lenses
In the original soft contact
lens solutions, the ingredient
Thimerosal was used as a
preservative for the solu-
tions. Some patients
developed a negative reac-
tion to these solutions.
Recently newer preserva-
tives have been introduced.
Some of the newer saline
solutions have no presera-
taves at all. These newbr
solutions appear to cause a
minimum of .sensitivity
among soft contact lens
wearers.
Discuss your contact lens
needs with your optometrist.

The Basketball team had
both good luck and bad luck
this past week. First, the
Sharks defeated Apalachi-
cola last Tuesday night by a
rather large margin. Then,
the Sharks ran into some
difficulties Friday night
when they played Grand
Ridge. The Sharks lost to
Grand Ridge by one point.
The Sharks will have several
chances to achieve a better
record in the coming week.
The first game for this week
is Thursday when the Sharks
take on Wewahitchka in the
Sharks' gym. Friday the
Sharks will be traveling to
Wakulla to take on the War
Eagles. Then next Tuesday
the Sharks will compete
against the Mosley Dolphins.
Good luck Sharks!

S_______ I Creamer Gives History of S&L


Eddie Creamer, manager
of Citizens Federal, spoke to
the Rotary Club about the
history and the present de-
regulation of savings and
loan associations.
Savings and loans are not a
comparatively new innova-
tion in home financing. The


associations were founded
back in 1831 when a group of
men organized to finance the
building of their own homes.
They each put $3.00 a month
into a fund and when it
reached $500, they drew lots
to see which one had the
opportunity to borrow the


$500 at an attractive interest
rate. The association was
formed in Frankford, Pa.,
and their first loan was for
$500 for a member to buy a
house.
By 1913, the system had
grown so in popularity until
the Federal Reserve System


was formed and regulation of
financial institutions was be-
gun. The great Depression in
the 1930's brought on even
more regulations of financial
institutions and the Federal
Savings and Loan Insurance
Corporation was formed to
insure savings in the associa-

. More restrictive legislation
passed by the 1984 Legisla-

the past the signs would
remain during the appeal
process. That caused a good
number of illegal signs to
remain in place for long
periods of time. The new law
allows for the removal of the
sign upon 30 days notice. If
the appeal process deter-
mines the sign should not
have been removed the state
will reinstall the sign or
reimburse the owners," said
Waddell.
The new legislation also
expanded the number of
businesses from one to three
that are required to be
located within a 1600 foot
radius from the sign location
for billboards to be legal in
counties without commercial
zoning.
Waddell said the new legis-
lation, which went into effect
.in October, also requires sign


owners to display a permit
tag, sets height limits at 50
feet outside an incorporated
area apd 65 feet within an
incorporated area, and re-
quires the permit applicant
to install the sign within 270
days after the permit is
issued.
Waddell said the state's
.emphasis on outdoor adver-
tising enforcement has been
prompted by a federal man-
date requiring the state to
"Clean up" the interstate
and primary road system.
"The Federal Highway Ad-
ministration has indicated to
the State of Florida that
federal funds will be withheld
if w,e do not comply. Since a
significant amount of our
funding comes at the federal
level we are making every
effort to meet that man-
date," he said.


tions.
By 1963, the associations
were authorized to deal in
Certificates of Deposit and
gradually the allowable ser-
vices of savings and loans
grew until today, they can
provide many of the services
a commercial bank may
offer. Still, the main function
of the associations is to make
home loans and furnish a
depository for savings ac-
counts.
Creamer said the most
recent endeavor of the assoc-
iations is to mount a lobbying
campaign with Congress to
balance the federal budget
and eliminate the deficit.
"Savings and loans feel the
continued and growing defi-
cit does lasting harm to the
nation's financial stability",
Creamer said.

"Our team this year was
made up of champions who
brought us the state title, so
we aren't giving any of the
usual awards at this year's
banquet", Coach Shaw Mad-
dox remarked at the begin-
. ning of the awards ceremony
at the annual football ban-
quet held in the Commons
Area Saturday night. Mad-


dox said as far as he was
concerned, no player was
more valuable than the other-
on this year's state champion
team and awarded only All
Conference, All Big Bend, All
State and letters to his'
players during the evening
which was marked by regret
and gladness. Both the play-
ers and the coaches were

happy with the results of the
football season, but the coa-
ches were sad the association
with many of the young men
on the team was over.
"We're not going to stop
with that", Maddox said.
"Beginning Monday morning
we're goingto start working
on doing it again next year."
The featured speaker for
the evening contracted the
influenza on the day he was
to come to Port St. Joe, so
Superintendent of Schools,
Walter Wilder, pitched in,
telling the young men, "A lot
of people gave a lot of effort
and sacrifice to the season
this year. There was com-
munity support with money
and encouragement, all of
which went into bringing
about the championship sea-
son." Wilder said he felt the
turning point in the football
season this year was the
Rickards game. "That game
sealed it up. After the
Rickards game was over and
the team experienced losing,
they decided then and there
that they had enough of
Losing. Winning felt better."
Wilder also read the au-
dience a letter' from the
Superintendent of Schools in
Wildwood which compli-
mented the entire city on the
way they were received and
treated while they were here
in Port St. Joe for the
championship game. "Our
treatment couldn't have been

Principal Edwin Wil-
liams brought the house
down when he observed,
"Your parents did a good
thing when they brought this
bunch of young men into the
world some sixteen years ago
. some of you, 19 years
ago!"
Also saluting the Sharks
was Shark Boosters presi-
dent, Don Ashcraft who
observed the team had "put
enthusiasm into the com-
munity."

The Board of County Commissioners are pleased to inform
you that the water system in your area is nearing completion.

Prior to completion, the system will have to be sterilized,
water samples taken, and pressure tested. The system ends
at the "connection shut-off valve", located on the property
owner's side of the meter. To insure these tests are of the
system only, no connections will be allowed to the system
until these tests have been made, and the results are cer-
tified to meet specifications.

A COLD ACCORDING
JTO CHARLES DICKENS

"I am deaf in the ears, hoarse in the throat, red in the
nose, green in the gills, damp in the eyes, twitchy in the
jointsand fractious in temper from a most intolerant
and oppressive cold." That is how the 19th century *
novelist Charles Dickens described a cold.

v Millions of people each year experience one or more
m of these distressing symptoms and the simple common a
cold is still one of our worst enemies. However, to fight
back we have regularly in stock a great variety of
products .that can combat the symptoms Dickens so
aptly describes.
"A GREAT MANY PEOPLE ENTRUST US
with their prescriptions, health needs and other
pharmacy products. We consider this trust a
* privilege and a duty. May we be your personal
family pharmacy?"

Sharks Lose Heart breaker to Indians


Jerry Davis, Grand Ridge basketball
coach, takes his basketball very serious,
would probably still be protesting if Michael
Pittman had made his free throw shots with
one second left in the Port St. Joe-Grand
Ridge game here last Friday night.
As it was, Pittman missed the first end
of a one and one and "he Sharks lost the
game by one point, while Davis was being
restrained and pushed off the court by his
players to keep the coach from drawing a
technical foul call and Pittman getting
another shot at winning the game for the
Sharks. Pittman, who normally scores in the
20's for the Sharks, had only six points to his
credit Friday and the missed free throw at
the end of the game was his only opportunity
at a free throw all night long.
The Sharks faced probably the best
team they have met all season long in Grand
Ridge, the number one ranked 3-A team in
the state.
The lead in the game changed hands all
night long, with the biggest lead held by
either team, a five point edge held by the
Indians fleetingly in the early moments of
the third quarter. The Sharks had a big four
point lead with a little over a minute to play
in the game. Other than that, three points
was 'the largest lead of the entire game.
The one point loss, 70-69, was the Sharks
second loss in regular schedule -play this
season. The Sharks lost a third game-their
first game of the year-in a Christmas
tournament held in Panama City.
With a four point lead and a little over a
minute to play, .the Sharks were trying to
control the ball and preserve their lead, and
had -Wgolden opportunity to put the game
away with four possible three point plays
within the last four minutes of the game.
Demrr-W. Thomas was the only one to cash in

PSJ, 67-MARIANNA, 65 3


on the three point opportunities, when he
was fouled on his only field goal of the game
and made the third point with two minutes
left. Thomas' points gave the Sharks a two
point lead at the time.
Dexter Baxter was then fouled while
putting the Sharks ahead by two points with
a little over a minute left in the game, but
missed his free throw. Doug Robinson came
right back with a jumper off a steal and put
the Sharks ahead by four, 67-63. But the
Indians mounted their ponies and Wayne
Edenfield made both ends of a one and one
and the Shark lead was cut to two. Kelly
Colbert then stole the ball for the Indians
and scored on a driving layup to knot the
score at 67-67. He was fouled while shooting
and made his third point, giving the Indians
a one point lead with 48 seconds left.
But Durey Cadwell, who had been hot at
the basket all night long, put the Sharks
ahead again, 69-68 on a short jumper with 38
seconds left.
The Indians were deliberately moving
the ball around for the last shot when Gary
Brown was fouled and put his Indians ahead
by one point with five seconds left.
Demetre Thomas brought the ball down
the court in a .hurry and fed off to Pittman.
who missed his shot.
The shot wouldn't have counted anyhow,
since the referees ruled that Pittman was
fouled during the drive. Pittman then went
to the line with pne second left on the clock to
put up his free throws to tie or win the game.
His first shot hit the ring and it looked as if
the Sharks would at least go into overtime,
but the ball circled the ring and jumped out,
ending the game with a one point victory for
the Indians.
The Indians deadly accuracy at the
foul line sealed the victory for them. Grand
Ridge was 18 of 21 from the foul line. The

Lose Property When Sold for Taxes


Several State Officials Had Old St. Joseph Land Holdings Sold by County


BY GEORGE ATKINS
From the County Record
Blountstown, Fla.
In Bobby Mears list of the
delinquent taxpayers of Cal-
houn County in 1846 'the
tragic history of St. Joseth is
revealed.
Ex-Governor W. P. Duval
who was greatly concerned
in organizing the Constitu-
tional Convention in 1838 was
to lose his wife Nancy in the
yellow fever epidemic. She
had been ailing and had gone
to take the cure salt water
baths and cool sea breeze.
Evidently Governor Duval
lost interest in his home in St.
Joseph and allowed the taxes
to become delinquent.,
Another delinquent taxpay-
er was John Jenkins, at least
his estate had failed to pay
taxes on his St. Joseph
holdings. Captain John Jen-
kins had become a successful
steamboat owner and pilot.
His steamboats made the
Apalachicola River at ompe-
titor for other cotton ship-
pers. He owned the first
steamboat. to run from Co-*
lumbus, Ga. to Apalachicola.
He was credited with making
Apalachicola a larger ship-
ping port. However, he be-
came intrigued with the
developing of St. Joseph into
a large port.
He joined forces with such
land promoters as W. K. Call,
Hezeekiah Wood, Benjamin
Hawley/and Williams Malorie
to divert the cotton shipping
from Apalachicola to the new
city of St. Joseph. He helped
secure capital from his mer-
chants in Columbus, Ga. to
plan a railroad from Lake
Wimico to St. Joseph. Later
the railroad would be extend-
ed to lola further up river.
His partners hired engineers
to dig the channel through
-the lake to a landing near St.
Joseph. Jenkins hired his"
steamer merchant to bring
prospective buyers .from
New Orleans and Pensacola
and Mobile to St. Joseph
where lots were, purchased at
large prices. But steamboats
were Jenkins' main liveli-
hod; One qf them the Ellen,
hity gnag in the -river at-
Blountstown and sank.
A year after losing his
steamboat, the Fannie, Cap-
.tain Jenkins was to suffer
heavy loss'ini his family from
the yellow fever. When his
oldest son lost-his life from
the fever, Jenkins loaded his
wife and another son who
were, suffering from, .the
yellow fever in their beds and
carried them to Apalachicola
by wagon to his personal
friend Dr. John Gorrie. It
was there that hd was to see
his friends suffer the dreaded
illness that had stricken his
family. Although a wealthy
man, the many deaths pre-
vented big. funerals for
everyone. Instead of cherry
coffins 'and elegant, head-
stones the dead were buried
and their graves marked
with crude pine markers and
ballast stones. So it was the
John Jenkins whose valuable
property was sold for taxes in
1846.
Another prominent St.
Joseph merchant to lose his


wealth in the collapse of the
city from diseases and hurri-
canes was B. S. Hawley.
Hawley had been one of the
most successful merchants
in Apalachicola but cast his
economic lots with St. Jo-


. seph. He sold his merc
business and interest

financial losses and b

Apalachicola to move to the
new growing city of St.
Joseph. Evidently he owned
valuable property in the new
port city. He too died in the
terrible yellow fever epi-
demice and his estate was
placed in the name of Felix
E. Gibson. Felix Gibson died
and his estate was billed for
double taxes in the 1846 rolls.
Two prominent- Apalachi-
cola citizens had made heavy
investments in St. Joseph
and their estates were unable
to pay.the taxes in 1846. They
were Hez. R. Wood and
Elizur whose estate taxes
were listed as E. I. Wood
Estate. Elizur Wood had
been one of the stock holders
in the Marine Insurance
Bank of Apalachicola. His
associates saw the import-
ance of the area for the
lumber industry. They re-
alized that valuable timber
for saw-milling was growing
up river. The tall pines would
make ships' masts, spars,
flooring, cypress for shing-
les, white oak and red oak for
staves, and many trees were
available for tar and tur-
pentine. The Hezekiah Wood
properties were known in
1846 as the Hez R. Estate. He
too had invested heavily in
the city of St. Joseph, be-

People receiving Social
Security benefits should note
that there are some things
they can do at the end of the
year that will help assure
that they continue to get the
most out of their Social
Security and Medicare pro,
tection.
For one thing, it's ia gbod
time to review one's circum-
stances to see if there are any
changes in earnings if .a
person 'continues to work
After retirement, change in
marital status, change in
name or address, or a change
in family size or number of
dependents. These are the
most common events that
may affect a person's monthni
ly check. These and other
events are discussed below:
Change in earnings- Peo-
ple who worked-in 1984 and-
whose earnings exceeded the
annual earnings limit or
were higher than estimated
earnings should report the
'change in earnings as soon as
possible. Many, people wait
until the April 15 deadline to
include the changes in the
annual earnings report. How-
ever, by that time substantial,
overpayment of benefits may.
have occurred. This is be-
cause benefits are reduced $1
,for each $2 of earnings above
the annual limit. People.who
work are required to report"
the amount of earnings they
expect to have and their
benefits are adjusted accord-
ingly. 'Any unreported earn-
ings would mean the person
would receive more benefits
that- he or she is entitled to-'
overpayments. The law re-
quires overpayments of Soci-
al Security benefits to be
repaid..
Change in marital status-
The benefits of people under
60 who are receiving benefits
on the earnings of a deceased
worker stop if they marry.
Benefits to widows and wi-
dowers or surviving divorced
spouses 50-60 can remarry
without affecting their bene-
fits. However, all such people
should report the marriage to

Tremain, Madena Ca


A prominent newspaper
publisher, J. D. Wescott
properties was among those
who failed to pay his taxes on
time. Wescott was one of the
earlier newspaper publishers
in the Florida Territory.
Wescott's newspaper, The
Advertiser was one which
reaped heavy financial re-
wards from investments in
Apalachicola. He carried
pages of advertisements for
the early merchants in Apa-
lachicola. The history of
newspapers in Florida shows
a real rivalry between West-
cott's Advertiser and the
Gazette. The Gazette editor
was to receive high acclaim
for his editorials. Evidently
Westcott left for St. Joseph
and was to suffer the fate of
those who saw their fortunes
washed away with the hurri-
canes and their families lost
to the dreaded yellow fever.
This part of local history is
expected to be reenacted in:
the 150th anniversary of
Calhoun County in 1988.
Bobby Mears' list of the
taxpayers in 1846 can be a
valuable resource in estab-
lishing the history of lower
Calhoun County.
