Gulf County has received a promise of three
high rise bridges to replace aging-and often
obsolete-spans now serving over three naviga-
ble bodies of water in the county.
Bridges cross navigable canals in three
places in the county; all crossings are presently
served by draw bridges which the Department of
Transportation says it will replace by the end of
this decade.
Apparently the best of the three draw
bridges, the draw span at White City, will be the
first to be replaced with a !high rise span. The
DOT filed plans with the county this week and
ordered a legal advertisement to be published
next week calling for a public meeting to discuss
alternatives of locating the new bridge. The
public hearing will be held on Thursday, March
14 in the County Commission meeting room in
the Courthouse at 7:00 p.m. In addition, the
notice advises anyone interested in the bridge or
adjoining property, that plans and proposals are
on file in the Mosquito Control building on 10th
Street and a copying machine is available to
make copies of all or a part of the proposal.
The notification for public hearing is the
nearest the State has come to actually getting
work started on any of the three high rise bridges
in the county. The present bridges range from an
antique and unique floating bridge at Overstreet
-also scheduled for replacing with a new high
rise-to the fairly trouble free installation at
White City. Lying in between is the troublesome-


clam-shell type bridge at Highland View.
The White City bridge to be replaced was
constructed in 1947, replacing the floating span
which is now located at Overstreet. The lift span
currently spans an opening of 107 feet and has a
26 foot road bed. Verticle clearance on the span
fnr lanrd traffic is 14 f at .ind t,. 2, mL- letM


reliable outlet for residents along the coast and
in the Port St. Joe area in case of disasters of any
kind.
One of the main reasons for the March public
hearings is to determine just where to locate the
new bridge.

section can be hoisted to provide an 85 foot
opening for marine traffic underneath, depend-
ing on the tide,
The proposed bridge for the White City
crossing of the Intracoastal Canal would have a
65 foot vertical clearance above mean high water
and span a 150 foot channel. Presently the canal
isn't that wide, but the bridge would allow for
future expansion of the canal width.
REASONS FOR RE-BUILDING
The. documents on file in the Mosquito
Control building contain some of the reasons for
building the new bridge. Some of the reasons are
that the old bridge, while reliable, is an old
structure and is becoming."worn, due to age and
usage". The mechanical apparatus seems to be
the main problem the DOT is focusing on when
they describe the bridge's condition.
A second reason for replacement is that the
bridge crosses the waterway, providing the only


the papers on file here in the county, the bridge
will begin rising into the air just as the roadway
goes into the curve on the west side of the bridge
approach. The approach will gradually rise for
the elevated span and gradually come back down
to ground level east of Stebel Avenue to a pint
near Charles Avenue.
Another point to be discussed at the hearing
is where to locate the bridge. One plan is :to
locate it on the site of the present bridge. TIis
plan seems to be discouraged by the DOT,
making it a point of discussion whether to place
the span to the north or south of the present
bridge. Relocation will require the state to
purchase an additional 4.5 acres of right of way..
No date for construction to begin was
revealed on the information filed with the
county, but with public hearings coming in
March, beginning of. construction is expected to
be not far in the future.

Students Witness

Gulf County's School Board met in the Port St. JoeHigh
School Media Center Tuesday, and Seniors of the school
were there to witness the governing body of the county's
school system in action.
In the short session, the board handled mostly routine
matters of business which go on every day, but need the
stamp of approval of the-Board in order to be legal.
One of the special items of business by the Board was
the acceptance of a check for $12,799.00 from the Port St.
Joe-Band Boosters, to pay off the final installment of a loan
provided by the School Board in 1983, when they loaned the
Boosters $18,000 to purchase new band uniforms. The check


Bo ard Meeting
was presented to Board Chairman Oscar Redd and
Superintendent Walter Wilder by Band Booster representa-
tive, Carl O'Barr.
Another special item of business was a decision by the
Board to make up the missed day of school during the
January freeze on April -. Superintendent Wilder said it
was imperative the system make up the day, under state
regulations, and the Board chose the day adjoining the
annual Easter vacation for the make-up.

WESLEY ATKINS


New Manager At

SJP Credit Union
The St. Joe Papermakers Federal Credit Union seated
Wesley Atkins as the manager of its operation here in Port
St. Joe at the annual meeting of the membership Monday
night. The meeting, which was held in the Commons Area of
the Port St. Joe High School, also had new directors Charles
Everett, Ralph Macomber and Larry Bateman begin new
terms of service Carry-over directors are Harry Lee Smith
and Jimmy JoInson.
Atkins assumed the management of the Credit Union
office after spending some 21 years as treasurer and a
member of the board of directors. Atkins' past service has
been on a part-time voluntary basis. He is now a full-time
officer of the Credit Union.
Some 500 members of the organization were in
attendance at the annual meeting and Atkins read
the treasurer's report in which he revealed the organization
had increased its assets by $1'1/ million during the past year
of operation.


Electors Will Decide On Utility Franchises In


May


fort St. Joe's electors will make a
decision on whether or not to award
new franchises to three utilities in the
city during the May 14 municipal
election, following action by the
Commission Tuesday night.
The Commission had already
agreed to ask the voters for a decision
on franchises for Florida Power
Corporation and St. Joseph Telephone
and Telegraph Company, whose cur-
rent franchises are running out.
Tuesday night, St. Joe Natural
Gas Company asked the Commission
to include renewal of their franchise
on the May ballot. "Our franchise still
has to 1989 to run, but we want to do
some expansion of the facilities and
it's easier to borrow the money to do it


when you have a franchise which runs
longer than our four remaining
years", Cecil Costin, Jr., owner of the
firm said.
Costin told the Commission the
franchise he was asking for was just
like the one his company was now
operating under. "All I'm asking for
tonight is that you agree to put the
question on the ballot in May. We still
-have plenty of time to make any
changes you feel you must make in the
document itself before the election",
he said.
GRANT DENIED
The City was notified by letter
Tuesday by the Department of
Community Affairs, that its request


for a housing grant had been turned
down.. The application, which would
have provided funds for a housing
program in north Port St. Joe, was
one of 65 applications filed with the
state. Only 18 of the applications were
approved for funding and Port St. Joe
was listed as number 55 in priority
among the 65 applicants.
Not very promising.
The City had done all the things
necessary to improve its "point"
situation in making the application,
but was ruled still out'of the running
by the Department of Community
Affairs.
The letter from the department
pointed out that "The fact that your
locality was not approved for funding


of its housing application is no
reflection on the worthiness of the
project proposed."
ASKS FOR HELP
The Commission agreed to join
other counties throughout the state in
asking the Legislature to help com-
munities out which are stuck with
gigantic payments into the Florida
Patient's Compensation Fund. The
fund was established back in the
1970's as a self-insuring fund to
combat the growing malpractice
insurance rates. Court awards kept
growing in size and number until now
the system is requiring huge sums of
money from its former and present
members to pay awards which have


been made.
Even though Port St. Joe has been
out of the hospital business since 1981,
the City is currently being billed for
some $58,000 in payments into the fund
to pay for past awards.
Meanwhile, the City is holding up
its payments until a definite amount
of money owed can be agreed upon.
Each time the City gets a new invoice
on the payments, the total changes.
OTHER BUSINESS
In other business matters, the
Commission:
-Made the first payment as its
share of the construction project
which is providing the solid waste
transfer station.


-Discussed the location of the
water meter measuring water going
to the beach and discussed the
installation of a warning system on
the main to warn operators of a major
break in the Beach line. Prolonged
lack of warning in such an incident
could endanger the City water supply.
-Contracted with the Process
Equipment Company of Panama
City to sell the idle incinerator at the
Wastewater Treatment Plant.
-Approved ordinance number
152, which up-dated the language in
the City's alcoholic beverage law. The
law wasn't changed in requirements,
but only changed the name of the
State Beverage Department, which
has changed its name.

THE STAR


THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 7,1985


It's gratifying to see the Corps
of Engineers is proceeding, without
unusual prodding on the part of
local interests, to do some mainten-
ance dredging of our harbor
entrance here in St. Joseph Bay.
Some five years ago, we all had
to get together and literally at-
tempt to move heaven and earth to
get a little emergency dredging of
the harbor entrance to sustain
modern water shipping into our
harbor. Now, almost without no-
tice, the Corps is going to do some
more maintenance dredging to the
harbor entrance to keep it open and
usable.
That's the way it should be. We
shouldn't have to put undue atten-
-tiion to such a task which should be
done on a matter of course basis.
' Our harbor and shipping channel is
authorized and used regularly and
s. should maintained on a regular


basis.
We'll be the first to agree that
the harbor isn't used now as much
as it has been in past years, but the
harbor has seen activity for the
past 150 years and there is no
reason to suspect it will cease to be
used in the future. As a matter of
fact, our attempts to establish a
major port here in Port St. Joe isn't
forgotten. It is still very much alive
and one of these days will be
accomplished. We believe that.
When it is accomplished, the
shipping channel and channel
entrance will be needed even more
and' we feel it will be cheaper to
maintain it than it would be to
make a major project out of
re-building it in the future.
We salute the Corps of Engin-
eers for doing what needs to be
done without our having to beg or
threaten them into doing it.

We're not much with keeping
up with fables, so we can't say for a
:.certainty, off the top of our head,
Svhether it means an early spring
or six more weeks- of winter

.groundhog, Puntxsatawney Phil,
saw his shadow when he made his
annual exit from his winter abode
in a deep hole in the ground the

Not living in Pennsylvania and
.having never lived in Pennsylva-
;-nia, we're not all that much up on
"*-the habits of groundhogs.
However, having lived here in
-,,the Panhandle of Florida for most
our life, we don't have to be a
-Pennsylvania groundhog to predict
that here in the Gulf County portion
pf the Panhandle, we will certainly
7 have at least six more weeks of

and let us run the University
system as we see fit, without any
interference from state govern-
ment."
That sounds like a good deal for
the state's universities, except for
one thing-that isn't 'our' money
the universities are operating with.
That's money which belongs to the
taxpayers of the state of Florida.

February is definitely a winter

continuation of his cold weather

We don't much resemble the
pictures we have seen of a
groundhog and we didn't particu-
larly look for our shadow on
groundhog day, but we'll tell you
now, we're not putting up our warm
clothing nor our heavy jackets just

teacher, and we subscribe to the
belief that it is, we'll have our
share of winter in the future few
weeks.

university when they get the bills
for junior's tuition.
Such isn't the case. All of us still
pay in a goodly portion of junior's
educational expense in taxes. The
state still pays most of the bill. If
the state were paying only a small
percentage, we could never hold
still for giving the system complete
autonomy over their operation as
long as there was tax money going
into it. The state deserves some
input to the university system if
they are going to pay a portion of
the bill.
We believe the Regents can
just forget that little idea. The
taxpayers of this state would never
stand still for it.


Kesley Colbert's Country Column


3 Out of 4 Doctors Recommend


I was at a bookstore in
Panama City recently look-
ing for a copy of a book en-
titled "Son of the Morning
Star" when a very nice lady
who happened to be in the
store at the time told me that
she read my "article". I was
quite surprised because this
lady was not my mother. I
quickly explained to her that
I was not a writer and that
my little blurb each week
had set journalism back
about a hundred years.
Sometimes you've just got
to be honest. Shucks, I'm not
even trying to be a writer
and after attempting this
thing for almost a year npw,
I realize that I don't want to
be a writer- Too many late
nights spent hunched over a
typewriter staring at a blank
sheet of paper. Besides, if I
keep this up I'm a'going to
have to learn how to type.
I received a letter "here-
awhile-back" that explained
to me that I should stop
wasting the. readers, time
with such useless trivia as I
churn out each week. You
know, I would like to write
this person and apologize,
but in their haste to hurt my
feelings they forgot to sign
their name and give me a
return address. So please ac-
cept my apology and don't
hold these nice folks here at
"The Star" responsible- I
don't think they even read
my article.
Nbw, I've said all that to
say this- this little (and I
mean little) blurb I throw at
you each week is not intend-
ed to tell you anything. I cer-
tainly do not presume to tell
you how to live your life.
You've got enough people
trying to do that everyday.
Take, for instance, the Presi-
dent's State of the Union
message. Mr. Reagan is go-
ing to address both houses of
Congress on the "State of the
Union". He will speak about
46 minutes. Just as soon as
' he finishes' those very
knowledgeable news cor-,,
respondents will come on
with "The President said..."
and for the next hour and a
half they will tell you what
Ronald Reagan said. Come
on now- we just heard what
he said. Somehow that
seems to be a slap at our in-
telligence. And as those
"very, knowledgeable guys"
explain to us what we just
heard with our own ears
you've got to bear in mind
that they are a'going to tell
us what they "think" he
said, or what they "wanted"
him to say. And just maybe
they will tell us something
that they don't actually
believe- they are just trying
to sound "knowledgeable".
You reckon those diet soft
drink people try to tell you
which drink has the fewest
calories? Which washing
detergent really gets your


clothes the whitest? I think it
depends on whether .little
Johnny has dropped ice
cream down the front of his
tee shirt or your husband has
a ring around the collar.
Maybe it depends on
whether you wash in cold or
semi-lukewarm water. At
my house we save the hot
water for baths. Every golf
ball commercial I've seen
lately the manufacturer
claims that his ball flys far-
ther and straighter than any
other ball. You know, I'm not
too smart, but only one ball
can be the longest. You see


those things and you begin to
feel that someone is lying to
you.
You got a headache? Sonn,
somebody has got a remedy
for you. If you want aspirin,
non-buffered coated tablets
or capsules, powders, time
release or fast acting, we all
know that relief is just a
swallow away. And no one is
shy about telling you what
you should take!
JIfyou got problems about
life- write Ann Landers-
she'll tell you what to do. If
you need money- call your
friendly credit company-


they make it seem like
they're giving money away.
If you just got small pro-
blems, ask your neighbor
down the street- most will
be glad to give you some'ad-
vice.
But if you're looking for
real information, don't read
this column. Heck, what I'm
trying to do here is simply
have some old fashioned fun.
I'm not trying to save the
world, or wash your clothes
or cure your headache. If,
perchance, you've smiled at
something I've put down,
then we've both accomplish-


Kesley
ed what we set out to do.
Maybe it's time for me to
"get out" of the writing
game as you have "found me
out" and now know that I'm
not really a journalist. But I
have enjoyed talking to the
folks here in Gulf County.
And it has been nice to say
hello each week to Hughey,
who's in the Army, and

It Doesn't Matter That You Haven't Shaved When A Friend Comes to Call


HAVE YOU EVER thought about
what you would do if you- had no
friends?
Friends are a different breed of
-folk and you have a different
relationship with them than you do
- :with any of your other acquaintances.
Friends are different from family.
They are different than business
associates. They are even differ-
ent than lodge members or civic club
fellow members, or any other of our
acquaintenances with whom we are
iisociated every day.
At times friends can cause us
trouble, but we forget it or overlook it
because they're friends. Friends
tempt us, but we just don't say
anything about it or fail to reprimand
them because they're friends.
Friends can even borrow money'
fiom us regardless of whether or not
they repaid the last time they
borrowed. As a matter of fact, we
will give friends financial aid, if we
can, before we would give the same
kind of aid to anyone else, regardless


of the relationship.
With friends we can be informal.
Dear Abby says one should call ahead
before going visiting, but with friends,

friends, you don't even have to knock

A COUPLE OF WEEKS ago, I

from a three-quarters day task, and
he just walked right in the house. I
hadn't seen him in a year, but he just

and off we went to the Peninsula.


doing, if we can.
It was all spur of the moment, but
it was enjoyable.

FRIENDS CAN GET you in
trouble, too.
I had a friend nearly get me in
trouble just the other day. I didn't
mind, though. All I had to do was tell


him I couldn't do certain things and
everything was all right. We didn't get
mad with one another just because we
couldn't get together with this activi-
ty. That's the way friends are.
A short while ago, I was out just
after dark doing my walking bit. My
route carried me down to Palm
Boulevard and I started down the
Boulevard to 20th Street, when down
around the hospital and back home.
As I was walking by Gene
Raffield's house (a genuine friend), I
noticed there were some five or six
automobiles parked around his house.
Gene is like me. He has a bunch of
kids and relatives (and friends) living
here in town and there's just liable to
be a dozen cars parked at his house, or
there's liable to be only one or two.
The next day, I saw Gene and
said, "I started to knock on your door
last night and ask which of those cars
was on special for the day. It looked
just like a used car lot around your
house last night."
Gene rose to the occasion like a


true friend and said, "You should
have knocked. I could have given you
a big bowl of some good oyster stew."
That explained why there were so
many cars parked around his house.
His oyster stew would attract a crowd.
But, in order to test Gene's
friendship real well, I'm going to call
his house the next time I walk around
that way and ask, "What's cooking on
the stove tonight?"

THEN, FRIENDS CAN also cause
you untold grief and sadness. Even
though the grief and sadness is a
major force in your life, there is a
delicious feeling also when a real
friend dies. A friend of mine died last
week. Harry Ford, a true friend and
one of the finest Christian gentlemen I
have ever known died after a long, full
life of 81 years. I just had to use the
word "delicious" in reference to
friend Harry, because knowing hi
has been a delicious experience: one
I'll never forget... even if I live to be
81.


Tides Not Available


Information for the tide

qua announced this week
that a representative from
his office will be in the Gulf

ance", the Congressman
said.

Overstreet Post Office
from 11:00 to 11:30 a.m.

ment calls for anotherivisit

where construction has al-
ready started before the:year
is ended. Cost of soil testing

lation.

Harold Quackenbush, a
member of Heifer Project
International, spoke to, the
Kiwanis Club Tuesday, tell-
ing them what the organiza-
tion was doing to combat
world hunger.
Quackenbush said the or-
ganization worked on the
that, "You can give a man a
fish and satisfy his hunger
for a day; but you can teach
him to fish and he won't be
hungry anymore."
The speaker said there are
people who suffer from hun-
ger all over the world, even
in the United States where
there is an abundance of
food. "There is actually
enough food being produced
in the world to feed everyone,
but the problem is the
logistics of placing the food
where the hungry people
are".
Quackenbush said feeding
the hungry isn't the answer
to the problem. "The answer
is to teach the hungry how to
feed themselves. We just
can't continue to give them a
hand-out every day and
expect that to take care of the
problem."
The Heifer project has a
program of giving away
pure-bred farm food animals
such as cattle, goats, rabbits,
chickens, sheep, etc. "The
idea is that the pure-bred
animal will provide more
food or milk than a animal
which doesn't have the pro-
per breeding behind it". The
only requisite to the give-
away program is that the
first-born from any of the gift
animals must also be given
away, so as to perpetuate the
program of preparing the
hungry to feed themselves.

Pedro, the nurses, hospital

their care and concern for
me.

KEY WORD IN DENTISTRY '
|"PREVENTION"
S N longer is the old saying, "Brush your teeth after
every meal and see your dentist twice a year" the '
ruling factor in dental health. Now the new concept is
prevention and dentists start by motivating their
) patients to learn how to control plaque. At the
beginning there may be frequent visits until the
dentist has thoroughly instructed the patient in the
- technique. Then, a visit every four months is
encouraged.
Not too long ago,. lots of cavities, chronic gum
* problems and other dental ills were accepted as an
everyday part of living. But now, prevention is
helping to change all this.
"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?"

COMING GAMES
The coming week will
probably be the premiere
week of the Sharks' season,
with three top-flight oppon-
ents on tap for the three
games scheduled.
Friday night, Vernon will
be coming to town to give the
Sharks another chance after
their two point win after six
overtime periods in the first
game of the season for the
Sharks. The Vernon game
should be a real shoot-out as
the Jackets have only three
losses to their credit this
season, just .like the Sharks.
Saturday night, the Sharks
will be on the road to Malone
to meet another of those
tough little teams which play
basketball all year long and
will let you know you have
run up against someone whn
knows what to do with &
round ball.
Tuesday night of. nexi
week, the Sharks will be ii
the Coliseum for Marianna;
one of the top-ranked class
2-A teams in the panhandle
along with Vernon.
The Vernon .game starts at 4
6:30, the ,Malone game at
7:00 EST and the Marianna:
game at 6:30.

phrase, "First in war, first in
peace, and first in the hearts
of his Countrymen."
If your memory did not
serve you as well as you
would like, why not make a
claim on your heritage dur-
ing American History Month,
and read some of the many
interesting books in our local
library?

Last April when I was in
Washington, D.C. I went to
visit the Vietnam War Me-
morial. The memorial had
been as controversial as the
war, but when I stood in front
of that black granite vee
listing the names of the 58,000
men and women who were
killed or are missing ,in
Vietnam, I wondered what
all the fuss was about, for it
was a most fitting memorial.
I had gone there to find a
particular name, and while
holding the paper for my
friend, Lolete Barlow, to take
a rubbing, I noticed that the
living were vibrantly reflect-
ed against the names of the .
dead.
It is an emotional place to
be, for tears come easily. The
memorial has come to be
called the Wall of Tears.
But as we continued to get
the rubbing, an elementary
school girl whom I would
guess to be about nine was
clearly touched by the wall.
That child had need of
words to express what she
felt. The ones she chose
were: "Fourscore and seven
years ago, in order to form a
more perfect union...'
So long as Americans
remember the great words,
those truths that set us free,
we shall continue to be a
grand democratic republic,
and that is one of the reasons'
why the Saint Joseph ,Bay
Chapter of the DAR sponsors
American History Month.
But' American History
Month is not officially de-
signated as such. If you think
it should be, write your
representatives in Washing-
ton encouraging them to,
make it so by law. We
appreciate your help. I have


written, and I have received
a very favorable response
from Lawton Chiles' office.
Just a few handwritten let-
ters may be enough to move
our leaders to claim our
heritage..
Each year the Saint Joseph
Bay Chapter, taking part in
the national program, spon-
sors an essay contest. This
year we are delighted to
share the essays with you.
The first winner is Chris-
tina Lynn Scott, daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. Walter Scott of
St. Joe Beach. Tina is a fifth
grade student at Faith Chris-
tian School. She chose as her
topic, "The Statue of Liber-
ty".
Congratulations to Tina for
a job well done, and to her
teacher, Mrs. Sherry David-
son.
"The Lady With The Lamp"
By Christina Lynn Scott
On Ellis Island in New
York stands a lady with her
torch held high. This statue is
known as the "Statue of
Liberty". Her history spans a
hundred years. Her constiuc-
tion is a work of art and the
rebuilding a costly one. Even
though she is old she is still
our great symbol-of freedom.
SThe Statue of Liberty was
designed by Frederic Au-
guste Bartholdi. The French
people gave the Statue of
Liberty to the United States
for the 100th anniversary of
American independence. The
French people raised funds


in various ways for the
figure. They began in 1874,
and in 1884 it was completed.
It was sent to the United
States in 1885, and it was set
up in 1886. Another name for
the statue is "Liberty En-
lightening the World". The
Statue of Liberty was sent to
the United States by battle-
ship. It was carefully dis-
mantled and packed in crates
for its long voyage over the
waters.
It holds a tablet bearing the
date of. the Declaration of
Independence. The statue
has a crown with huge
spikes. The statue is made of,
300 thin sheets of copper. It
stands 151 feet, and weighs'
450,000 pounds. Its torch rises
305 feet. At the statue's feet
are broken shackles. .She
wears a loose robe that falls
in folds: The statue is 46.05
meters high. It looks like a
proud woman. The statue
holds a torch in her right
hand. This torch has around
19 lamps using about 13,000
watts. The platform where
people can look out has 25.
windows. 30 people can look
out of the torch at one time.
When we think of the
Statue of Liberty each of us
as Americans think of free-
dom and liberty. To each
person who has entered our
country from foreign shores
they see it as freedom
opportunity and a chance to
live and work as they please.

Seniors Report On Past


Start .1985 With Plans to Expand Its Activities for


With considerable help for
its friends, the Gulf County
Senior Citizens Association
wound up an eventful year
which saw a director, Jerry
Ream, leave for a position in
Tallahassee, and a new di-
rector, Donna Doolittle,
come up from Pinellas
County to take his place, In
the months between, the
agency was kept going by a
dedicated staff under the
temporary direction of Com-
munity Care for the Elderly
Program case manager,
Charlene Thomas, with the
support of a fine Board of
Directors under Stiles Brown
as president.
The Senior Citizens are
very grateful, not only to the
staff and Board of the
Association, but also to the
many others who helped in
1984. The White City volun-
teers who delivered "Meals
on Wheels" everyday get a
special thank you. So does
the church group that sends a
check every month, and the
club group that has given a
subscription to the large
print edition of Reader's
| Digest for a number of years.
Groups that periodically
raise money for. the agency,
and individuals who bring
clothing and books and boxes
of fresh fruit for everyone
are also greatly appreciated.
The people who provide
music and song and a gospel
message to our Center every
Wednesday are greatly cher-
ished. So is Mr. Walter
Wilder and the members of
the County School Board who
let our Wewa Senior Citizens
get out of the windowless
Community Center just be-
fore Christmas and into. the
brightly redecorated old Ele-'
mentary School cafeteria
which makes a very roomy
and cheerful Senior Center.
They also loaned us tables
and chairs since we had very
few of our own.
It is impossible to list
everyone who helped us do
much more than our limited
government funding would
ever allow us to do. Many
have helped with our fund
raisers by giving flod, things
-,to sell, gift certificates to
auction off,: and much more.
Port St. Joe folks were better
chili eaters and singers in
.December than Wewahitch-
ka folks were, but the Wewa-
hitchkans outshine every-
body when it comes to,
auctions and great dinners.
So many people were needed
to help out and we are deeply
grateful to all who did.
And Tackle 1985 Head On-
Much more is needed. Our
population over 75 is the
fastest growing group in the
county. With this growth.
comes problems of quality of
life along with the quantity.
One unmet need came to
light when the Sheriff an-
nounced discontinuance of
the old practice of his depart-
ment calling elderly home-
bound persons once a week to
see how they were doing.
What we really need is a
volunteer telephone reassur-
ance program that will check


on the lonely, very vulner-
able, homebound elderly
and-or handicapped up to
seven days a week. The
Senior Citizens Association is
setting one up now and it is to
be immediately in action, at
least to first see and evaluate
all those on the Sheriff's list
of persons to be called. New
applications and referrals for
the program will be accepted
now. Call 229-8466 for more
information. The Sheriff will
assign some of his staff to
regularly visit people in
remote areas who don't have
telephones.
Also needed is a volunteer
companion program where
people will actually visit
certain homebound, lonely
people or selected people in a
place other than their own
home about once a week to
read to them, write letters,
play games or just talk
awhile. The Senior Citizens
Association will start this
program as soon as volun-
teers are available.
Later on in the year we
want to get into some preven-
tive. health areas. To start
-with, we need to find a couple
of volunteers who have work-
ed in the health field and who
can do blood pressures. Don-
na Doolittle is able to train
and supervise volunteers in
this area. We think many
older people with chronic
illnesses can be helped to
avoid many of the more
critical stages of their illnes-
ses.
In addition, all of our usual
programs of congregate
meals, home delivered
meals, homemaker services,
transportation, personal
care, chore services, recrea-
tion, counseling, and many
others are available to per-
sons who are 60 years of age
and older and who have some
need for the programs. Se-
veral hundreds now get these
services each day in Gulf
County. Call 229-8466 or
more information.
Using People,
Not More Tax Dollars
Of course it .takes some
hard, cold cash to run our
programs. .Our. government
grants purposely require
some local "match" (usually
10 percent) funds. And-they
don't by any means give us
enough to do even all the
basic things we must do.
Merchants help us by giving
us discounts and special
deals. Our participants con-
tribute some toward the cost
of their meals and services,
and they keep "Penny Jars"
to collect money for arts and
crafts materials. They hold
fund raisers so they can take
short trips shopping in Pa-
nama City or on picnics now
and'then. Their fund raisers
also help us pay bills when
our vans need many more-
repairs than we have budget-
ed for. Our city and county
commissioners help us out
with as .much cash as- they
can spare. The regular dona-
tions we'can count on are the
ones that help us most of all,
even when these are just a
few dollars a month or once a

year.
We feel sure nobody wants
to have taxes increased. We
all want more in our pockets
to spend on the things we
want. At the same time, none
of us wants to see our older
citizens lonely and afraid, let
alone hungry and badly
housed and clothed. The idea
of a person falling or having
a stroke and nobody knowing


about it for a week makes us
all shudder. Is this what it
will be like when we get old
or become ill?
The answer lies in volun-
teering. Throughout this
country hundreds of thou-
sands of people save the
country literally billions of
dollars through their volun-
teer help. Even more im-
portantly they let organiza-


tions likeours give services
that oculd not be given unless
volunteers did them. The
White City volunteers donate
their time, and their gaso-
line, to see that some White
City folks get meals daily
that we couldn't get to them
otherwise. What we all do
now to establish a warm,
caring, safe atmosphere for
our oldest citizens in Gulf


BY ROY LEE CARTER
County Extension Director
There are several native
species of blueberries in
Florida. The commercial na-
tive species adapted to the
mild winters of northern
Florida is the Rabbiteye.
Highbush blueberries adapt-
ed to north Florida have been
produced through the Uni-
versity of Florida.
Blueberries form a bush
with numerous leaders aris-
ing at or near the base of the
plant. The leaders and bran-
ches survive and produce
fruit for several years, but
become weak and sometimes
die back. Occasionally, the
bush becomes too thick for
easy- harvesting. This is
corrected by pruning out
several of the leaders or
branches.
The most unique features
of the blueberry are its
requirement. for acid (pH
4.0-5.2) soils, its shallow
fibrous root system, and its
sensitivity to nitrate fertili-
zers. This necessitates plac-
ing' plants about an inch
deeper in the field than' they
stood in the nursery. Acid
peat should.be mixed with
the planting soil, and fertili-
zer should be added in very
small' increments the first
season. During the second
season, apply about two
ounces per plant 'of acid
fertilizer (such as is avail-
able for camellias and aza-
leas). Because of the shallow

Seminar

Doctor Shirley R. Simpson,
M.D. of Port St. Joe attended
the Family Practice Week-
end of the Florida Academy
of Family Physicians at the
Sheraton at St. Johns Place,
Jacksonville on January 25-
27 with over 200 other family
doctors from throughout
Florida.
The medical education pro-
gram of the meeting was
designed to update the know-
ledge and skills of practicing
family doctors in a wide
range of subjects including
-asthma, diabetes, hyperten-
sion, pre-marital counseling,
treatment of breast cancer,
anemia, alcoholism, child
with school failure and other
topics. A flexible sigmoido-
scopy workshop was also
offered.
Members of the Academy
must complete 150 hours of
approved postgraduate study
every three years in order to
maintain their membership.
The Florida Academy of
Family Physicians is the
Florida chapter of the Ameri-
can Academy of Family
Physicians formed in 1947 to
promote the highest stand-
ards of primary medical
care and to increase the
number of family physicians
available to the American
public. The Academy has
58,000 plus members
throughout the United States.
Family Practice was ap-
proved in 1969 as the 20th
medical specialty,

be very shallow and supple-
mental water may be need-
ed. Mllches are preferred to
cultivate for weed control.
Blueberries thrive on all but
very sandy soils if the soils
are acid and well drained.
Despite the very specific
demands of the blueberry,
the plants are very long-
lived. Blueberries are not
often damaged by spring
frosts and produce rather
consistently.

prevent heavy competition
with the shallow roots. Many


materials are available for
use in small plantings or
around single trees. Materi-
als such as oak leaves, pine
needles, and. hay are suit-
able. Sawdust is satisfactory
but should not be incor-
porated into the soil since
nitrogen regulation may be-
come difficult.
FERTILIZATION
Blueberries are very sensi-
tive to nitrogen and can be
easily killed, particularly
when they are young. Exer-
cise extreme caution when
fertilizing young plants. An
annual application of two
ounces of acid fertilizer
(such as for camellias or.
azaleas) per plant in Febru-
ary is ample fertilizer on two
year old plants.
Recommended Varieties
Sharpeblue and Florida-
blue, Self-fertile, very early
ripening season;
Beckyblue and Climax,
other varieties needed for
pollination, early ripening
season;
Bluegem, other varieties
needed for pollination, mid
ripening season;
Tifblue,, Woodard, Delite,
Choice, other varieties need-
ed for pollination, late ripen-
ing season.


Year



Aged
County is likely what will be
here when we reach that age
and need those services, too.
We need to let our younger
people see us caring for our
elderly now, if we expect
them to care for or about us
as we grow older, too. "As
you sow, so shall you reap" is
as tfue today as it ever was.
So save tax money, assure
your own safe and secure
future, and have that great
feeling that' comes from
helping others as you go
along. Do yourself a lot of
favors and volunteer. The
Senior Citizens Association
needs alot of volunteers now.
Call 229-8466 or 229-6655 if you
can spare an hour each day
to make four or five phone
calls to some lonely people,
or can spare an hour or so a
week to visit someone who
needs you. We will give you
some training and lots of
support as you do these
things. If you yourself are
handicapped and-or alone,
but can make phone calls we
can get you that great
satisfaction of helping your-
self by helping others. Some-
times we need your cash too,
but most of all we need you
giving of yourself. Together
we can make this a wonder-
ful place for all of us in.which
to grow old.

partment of Environmental'

stallation.date and the oard

recommendation, the Board
requested Manuel call the

Attorney Rish reported he
and Building Inspector De-
Wayne Manuel had been
meeting with the engineering
firm Barrett, Daffin, and
Carlan, Inc. concerning their
work for the Board in closing
the county landfill site in
Port St. Joe. Attorney Rish

Daffin, and Carlan, Inc. is
trying to close a site belong-
ing to Sylvachem Corpora-
tion, even though he and

not to, as this site doesn't
belong to the county and the
engineering firm has now
sent the county surveys, etc.
of the Sylvachem site. Upon
the Attorney's recommenda-
tion and unanimous agree-
ment of the Board, the
Chairman requested the At-
torney write Barrett, Daffin,
and Carlan, Inc. informing
them the Board is not respon-
sible for this work and will
not pay any invoices received

the Department of Environ-
mental Regulation to pro-
ceed with the landfill fencing.
Upon Comm. Branch's inqui-
ry, the Board agreed to use

ously wrote the Board re-
questing his secretary Mild-
red Jones be given a salary

request, he was now submit-
ting a survey of county
agents' secretaries' salary
comparisons from other
counties (Bay and Calhoun'
County). At Comm. Branch's
-inquiry, Carter informed the
Board Mrs. .Jones' present
salary is $14,945.84, but he
was requesting the increase
based on the number of years
worked. At Comm. Traylor's
suggestion, the Chairman
requested Carter figure the
amount of raise, based on
comparison with Calhoun
County, he was requesting
for his secretary for presen-
tation at the next Board
meeting.
Attorney Rish reported he
and his associate, George
Core had been working with
Jake Varne, an attorney
. representing M-K Ranches,
which is in the process of
making a property sale to the
State of Florida, to deter-
mine the exact location of the
right of way M-K Ranches
had given the county many
years ago. Attorney Rish
reported they found the
county right of way location
incorrect according to the
legal description of the ease-
ments. In order to clarify,
title, Varnes proposed the
county release all interest in
the present right of way, M-K
Ranches then give the county
a 100 ft. right of way instead.
of the present 50 ft. right of
way, from Road C-381 to
Brown's Creek. Comm.

ported the litter at the
garbage trailer site at the
Dead Lakes Dam is unsightly

'Contrbl Department to do
more cleaning at this site.
Comm. Birmingham also
stated, at the request of the
City of Wewahitchka, he was
asking the Board pursue a
different garbage site on the
other side of the dam. After
discussion, in which Comm.
Owens and Branch said they
would prefer the trailer site
be outside the city limits,
Comm. Birmingham and At-
torney Rish agreed to look
for .a new site.
Comm. Birmingham in-
formed the Board the City of
Wewahitchka is requesting
the Board's permission to
construct a fence on both
sides of the county's right of
way located next to the Dead
Lakes Dam. Comm. Branch
stated he opposed this re-
quest as this is a location
where people fish.
Comm. Birmingham re-
ported since Road Depart-
ment employee Gene Arm-
strong had returned to work
on a temporary basis he had
been operating machinery
with no problems and was
now working on a permanent
basis. Comm. Birmingham
then discussed the Board's
previous action to leave
employee Bobby Knee's pay-
rate as is until Armstrong
was again able to operate
machinery and at that time
the Board take action on
Knee's payrate. The Board
agreed that the usual policy
should be followed and
Knee's payrate be lowered to
the amount paid his position


and not be set up to Arm-
strong's payrate.

quired why there was no
commodity food distributed
in Wewahitchka on the last

ned project being to rebuild

with Road Superintendent
Lester as to why the Road
Department hasn't started
construction of a bridge or
installed a culvert at the
ditch on Charles Avenue in
White City 'as this was
previously approved by the
Board and instruct them to
proceed as soon as possible.
Comm. Branch requested
the Attorney's advice on
using applications received
for the Mosquito Control
Department job opening in
October, 1984, to select and
hire one more laborer-
permanent position at the
Mosquito Control Depart-
ment. After advice from the
Attorney, the Board agreed
to advertise to receive appli-
cations for this job opening,
with the advertisement to
state all applicants who

ment job opening in October,
1984, need not reapply as

Rehabilitative Services is no
longer considering co-

,ter system and found it was

ment of the biblical tithe as

The Episcopal Diocese of
the Central Gulf Coast is
composed of 57 parishes and
missions in southern Ala-
bama and northwest Florida.
From these Churches, nearly
500 delegates, alternates and
guests were in attendance at
Trinity Church in Mobile,
Alabama for the opening
session.
The sermon at the opening
session was preached by The
Rt. Rev. Furman C. Stough,
D.D., Bishop of Alabama.
The theme of the sermon was
stewardship. His' message
followed a parallel structure
wtih two main points.
The. first point focused on
the mission of the Church.
Bishop Stough reminded the
hearers that the first Church
in Jerusalem (Acts 2-12)
featured fellowship, teach-
ing, baptism, Holy Com-
munion, order and discipline,


Comm. Branch moved, at
the recommendation of the
Chairman, the Board adopt
Resolution No. 85-1. Comm.
Traylor seconded the motion
and it passed unanimously.
Chairman Money requested
the Board mail a copy of the
resolution to the Capital Area
Community Action Agency,
and also write this agency
informing them the County
has no office space available.
The Board received a letter
From St. Lucie County Board
of County Commissioner's
attorney requesting informa-
tion on the process of utilities
regulation and rate setting
within Gulf County. The
Board requested the At-
torney take care of -this.
Upon motion by Comm.
Birmingham, second by
Comm. Traylor, and unani-
mous vote, the Board adopt-
ed Resolution No. 85-2, with
the attorney to provide a
copy to the Wewahitchka
Chamber of Commerce. The
Resolution, favoring con-
struction of Forest State
Road 13, is on file in the
Clerk's office.


with near-neighbor outreach.
The second Church (Acts 13
and following) was full of
energy. Missions were start-
ed over great distances with
Antioch as the base of
operations. This second
Church was growing, teach-
ing, generous, multi-racial,
self-denying and cosmopoli-
tan. Stough noted that the
Episcopal Church in the
United States has concen-
trated primarily on Word and
Sacrament and thus identi-
fies more with the static
model of the Jerusalem
Church than it does with the
evangelical model of the
Church in Antioch. One of the
great needs of the modern
expression of Christianity in
the Episcopal Church is to be
more evangelical.
The second point of the
sermon focused on mercy.
Stough exemplified the life of
Jesus by saying that our Lord
spent his time with the sick,


the criminally oriented, the
mentally ill, the socially
displaced, the poor, etc. He
reminded the congregation
that Jesus lived this way to
demonstrate \the fact the
God's grace is offered to all
people without charge. The
bishop illustrated his points
with touching personal ex-
periences which showed that
the principle of grace is
simple, yet it is very de-
manding. The listeners were
challenged to practice godly
grace, and work toward
being examples of the mercy
of God.
This very moving sermon
set the tone for the entire
convention. A spirit of tolpr-
ance, genuine concern for
evangelism, and mercy per-
miated even the most emo-
tional discussions. Sensitive
issues were openly dis-
cussed, feelings were reveal-
eA, and measured judgments
were made.

NOTICE TO


BEACH WATER


SYSTEM RESIDENCE


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.


If you have made a connection to the meter, you are re-
quested to disconnect. Prior to testing all meters will be
checked and sealed. All connections not part of the system

will be cut loose at this time.

Before individual taps can be turned on, each property owner
will be required to have their system inspected by the Gulf
County Building Department. All water lines must be un-
covered for this inspection. Cross connections will not be
allowed. Connections' should be made to the structure and
cannot be made to existing wells. Prior to inspection, the
property owner needs to obtain a Plumbing Permit from the
building department located in the courthouse. There will be
no charge for the permit or the inspection.

Additional information may be obtained by calling the
building department: 229-8944.
