The City of Port St. Joe will
be faced with approval of
three -utlilty franchises dur-
ing the month of May,. as the
result of action taken by the
Commission Tuesday night.
All three of the City's
current franchises are up for
re-newal at one time, with
the final approval being the
responsibility of the voters.
,One of the three franchises,
St: Joe Natural Gas Com-
pany, is not due for reconsid-
eration by the voters until
1989, but the firm wants to do
some re-financing for expain-
sion and improvements and
feels a .fresh, new 30 year
franchise would be to their
| benefit when they face the
banks for money to do the
expansion with.
Florida Power Corporation
and St. Joseph Telephone and
Telegraph Company are the
.other utilities asking, for 30
year franchise renewal. Both
have served the city with'
their services for many
years.
At the present time, only
Florida Power Corporation is
paying the City a franchise
tax. The electric distribution
company is paying the City
four percent of revenues, but
the utility is allowed to
collect the tax from the user.
The new franchises contain
language which allow the
City to take another look at
thq franchise before the 30
year duration is up, to plape
franchise taxes on the other-
.. two utilities if it is ever
needed in the future."
All three utilities are ask--
ing for virtually the same
privileges they have operat-
ed under in the past:.Only the
provision allowing .'for the
future possibility of franchise
taxes has been changed.
The decision for the three
franchises will be placed
before the electors in the


May 14 city elections.
MEDICAL INSURANCE
The Commission followed
the request of a committee
representing its employees
Tuesday night, and agreed to
sign up with a different firm


to provide medical insur-
ance, effective April 1.
The committee recom-
mended to the Commission
that the proposal of Hill,

New Wewa School Considered


The Gulf County School Board has almost
decided it will complete a project of building a
new elementary school plant in Wewahitchka
during the 1985-86 school year, according to
,Superintendent Walter Wilder.
The, Board went into a building program in
Wewahitchka about four years ago and built new
facilities at the Linton School site to house
grades one through.four, moving them out of the
old school building on Highway 71 in Wewahitch-
ka. "We're planning to finish what we have
already begun", Temple Watson, administrative
assistant told The Star.
"The state department told us several years
ago they would no longer fund any major
expenditures on the old building because t is no
longer a proper building for students to go to
school in", Watson said. "We don't get enough
state funding to do the job with state money
altogether and we don't have enough local
money to go along with the state funds to replace
the building up to this time", he said, "But the
Board is working toward doing something,


possibly as early as the next school year, which
begins during the summer of 1985."
Watson estimated the new school facilities
would take some $400,000 to $600,000 to finance
the project.
The present building being occupied by
grades four through six in Wewhhitchka dates
back to the early 1930's. Part of the building has
been added on in more recent years and Watson
said these few rooms are in fair shape. "The gym
is also in good shape'', Watson said.
The Board will be meeting with architect
Charles Arthur Gaskin next week to discuss
alternatives the board has in building the new
rooms and discuss design and space needs.
PRINCIPAL SEARCH
The Board has received 17 applications to fill
the vacancy left by the resignation of
Wewahitchka High School principal Clayton
Wooten, who suddenly tendered his resignation
during the Christmas holiday period.
According to Wilder, the board will use the


"targeted selection process" in choosing a new
principal and could possibly have a selection by
the May board meeting.
"The selection process we are using is slow
and deliberate, designed to pick the best person
and examine their credentials thoroughly",
Wilder said.
In other matters of business, the Board was
fated with the problem of transportation matters
at Overstreet in which parents are concerned
that their children must meet the bus so soon in
the morning and get home so late in the
afternoon.
The Board also received a letter, from
Nathan Peters, Jr., cotnmending the Guidance
Department for their interest and concern in the
welfare of the children and in keeping parents
informed of progress of their children in school.
Another matter placed before the Board was
a parents' concern for having the bus air
conditioned which transports exceptional stu-
dents to and from Panama City each day.

Editorials and Comments


THE STAR


THURSDAY, MAR. 7, 1985


We're anxious to see how the
new, permits are going to work,
allowing drivers to put their
vehicles on the beaches of the
Indian Pass-Cape San Blas area
and drive them on the beach.
Many of the complaints from
,vehicles being driven on the beach
.'are from new beachfront owners
-who are shelling out up to $900 a
front foot for the property and
building expensive buildings on the
beach. They have strong feel-
ings against people driving their
trucks, cars and beach buggies up
and down what they now consider
their property.
The drivers of the vehicles feel
the beach property belongs to the
public and they have a right to
drive up and down it because they
have always been able to do so.
We won't get into who owns the
beachfront property. That would
-.:take some interpretation of the law
a. nd some expertise in surveying to
`determine just who owns what
.'When it comes to waterfront
...property.
Even so, we can empathize
.with the person who has shelled out
more than $100,000 to have a
peaceful home by the seashore and
have his fill of looking at the ocean
undisturbed by racing vehicles.
Even though we are among the


State Education Commissioner
- Ralph Turlington has finally ended
his season of holding the rest of the
state in suspense and announced
,.,that he will not bethe Commission-
'er of Education for a fourth term.
Then, he announced he would
s support and work for legalizing a
state-wide lottery to raise funds for
the state's schools.
de It's just as well. Turlington
Decided to step down from his job
before he announced his plans to
pursue the lottery. In all likelihood,
his affiliation with the pro-lottery
forces would do wonders to keep
him out of being elected for a fourth
term, anyhow. This way, the voters
won't have to put him out to explain
their objection to his new cause.
It's sad that support of a
statewide lottery is being tied to
finances for the schools. There are
those, individually and collective-
ly, who will translate opposition for


ones who have lived here long
enough to feel this historically
empty land belongs to us, we still
realize it does not and we must play
by a new set of rules now that
people are buying what we all once
considered worthless sand, fleas
and stickers.
In all likelihood, had those who
use their vehicles on the beaches
used them in a sensible manner,
even the new owners would not
have objected. People would still
have free access to the beaches to
do their picnicing, swimming,
fishing, crabbing, etc., free of
complaint and hassle.
Maybe the permits will remove
the unwelcome element. We think
not, but maybe it will. If a person is
inconsiderate enough of the other
fellow to make a pest of himself
along the beaches with his beach
buggy, we hardly see how a decal
stuck on his vehicle or the lack of
one can make him have that
consideration all of a sudden.
In other words, a slob is going
to be a slob. A decal or a permit will
not make him change his ways.
Nor, will the threat of the 'law
catching him without that decal or
permit change his ways.
We're stuck with him, and he's
the one who will continue to curb
the privileges of the rest of us.


a statewide lottery into opposition
for public schools and their sup-
port.
Personally, we don't like being
placed in this position, but before
Turlington even gets his first
signature to sign the pro-lottery bill
in preparation to placing it on the
ballot, let us say, we are opposed to
a statewide lottery. We're even
opposed to a countywide lottery. ..
or a citywide lottery.
Actually, we're just opposed to
lotteries. We figure you have
arrived at that assumption already
but we thought we would remove
any doubt.
To go a step farther, we hope
that if by some small slim chance a
lottery should be approved for
Florida, that not one penny of it
should go to the school, system. It
just seems more appropriate to us
for schools to be financed from a
less questionable source.


March Brings Us Wind, St. Patrick's


WE HAVE ALL JUST finished
with the celebration of the New Year
and here it is March already. As a
matter of fact, when .the day is over
today, the month of March will be one
quarter completed. We are now
entering the second half of the first
half of the month.
March always holds a particular
fascination for me. First of all, it was
the month in which I was born.
Sometime early in the morning hours
of March the 20th, I took a peek at the
world and asked where the St.
Patrick's Day celebration was being
held. Of course, I was late for the St.
Patrick's Day celebration, but I had to
lie around, cooling my heels for 24
hours before I could join in the
celebrationn of the first day of spring.
_= St. Patrick's Day was a big day in
:that little town of Shamrock, Okla-
homa, where I was born. The town
must have been named by a lucky
Iishman who drilled an oil well on the
edge of the big Tulsa pool, where
Shamrock sits. The town had streets
with Irish names such as Tipperary,
Limerick, Shannon, etc.


When St. Patrick's Day rolled
around, that little town blossomed out
in green splendor and the search was
on for shamrocks in everybody's
lawn.

WHEN I REACHED a sufficient
age to go to school, the schools offered
a chorus and a rhythm band. I started
out on the sticks and graduated to the
bird whistle before the year was up.
I was hot stuff in that rhythm
band. Once, the director even let me
play the sandpaper blocks. About the
only thing above the sandpaper blocks

our flag because I don't have
a short memory.
That just about covers
everything except country
music. Boy howdy, do I love
country music and I'm
somewhat concerned about
real country music today.
You take for instance Kenny
Rogers -now, the old boy
can sing and I really enjoy
most of his songs and he
seems like a real nice guy-
but he ain't country. Ira and


Charlie Louvin are country.
My wife thinks that John
Denver is the greatest and
he, like Kenny Rogers, has
won numerous country
music awards but somehow
the boy just don't seem coun-
try to me. Now don't misun-
derstand what I'm a'saying
here-I like John Denver, I
like most of his music and he
is a super performer but
somehow I don't associate
snow skiing in Colorado with
being country. Uncle Dave
Macon is country. Mother
Maybelle; Sara and A.P.
Carter are country.
I guess what I'm getting at
here is that it is becoming
exceedingly difficult to pick
out the real country music
people today from the pre-
tenders. You see, people like
the legendary singing break-


Kesley
man, Jimmy Rogers, Roy
Acuff, Ernest Tubb, Kitty
Wells, Hank Williams, Lefty
Frizzell and a host of others
worked hard to build the
country music business in
the 30's, 40's and 50's. And
don't give me that old story
that you thought Kitty Wells
was a place cats went to get
water. George Jones, Marty
Robbins, Faron Young, John
ny Cash, etc. have worked
equally as hard in recent
years to carry on the tradi-
tion. Today the country
music business is big bucks
and everyone and his
brother is trying to cash in.
The Eagles aren't country.
Jumping Bill Carlisle is
country.
Barbara Mandrell has a
song out entitled "I Was
Country When Country
Wasn't Cool" that sums up
my early experiences with
country music. While all my
friends in 1955 were talking
about seeing Elvis over at
the Jackson Civic Center I
was listening to George
Jones doing "Why, Baby,
Why". In 1959 while they
were dancing to Little Ric-
hard's "Tutti Frutti," I was
fighting the British with
Johnny Horton in the "Battle
of New Orleans". My friends
went ape over the Beatles in
1964. I was just as excited;
but not over the
Beatles--Stonewall Jackson
had a new song out called
"Don't Be Angry." Eddie
Rabbit is from New Jersey-
he's not country. Don Reno
and Red Smiley are country.
You listen to most of the
"Country Music" stations on
your radio these days and
you'll find that they are play-
ing a real country tune about
every 5th or 6th record. The
rest of the stuff they play is
that soft, middle of the road
sound or that semi-hard rock
mess that Hank Williams,
Jr. puts out. Those "country
stations" have got D.J.'s
that have never heard of
Patsy Montana, or the
Delmore Brothers or Pee
Wee King. There's lots of
folks that won't listen to
country music on the radio
or anywhere else for that
matter. They say they don't
like it and that's O.K.-if
they don't want to be
cultured like me and you,
just leave them alone. Julio
Iglesia ain't country.
"Wander" Jackson is coun-
try.

listened to Loretta Lynn last

Film at Long Avenue Deals


with Happiness; A Choice


features Drs. Paul Meier and
Frank Minirth, two of the
world's leading Christian
psychiatrists,. Joni Eareck-
son-Tada, Beverly LaHaye,
and Don Baker, pastor and


author. This film will chal-
lenge you in finding the real
source of happiness. It can be
seen at Long Avenue Baptist
Church Sunday night, March
10 at 7 p.m.


In a world consumed by the
pursuit of happiness and
fulfillment, we find a strange
paradox. Rather than happi-
ness- depression: rather
than fulfillment- distress.
The film, "Happiness is a
Choice", takes full advan-
tage of the interest the
secular world has generated
in both its periodicals and
media coverage on the sub-
ject of depression.' It is
obvious that the secular
world is without hope in
solving the stress, anxiety
and depression that comes in
a life apart from Christ. The
film, "Happiness is a
Choice", speaks out clearly
on the hope, joy and fulfill-
ment available only through
a relationship with the Lord
Jesus Christ.

ULTRA-SENSITIVITY
TO LIGHT
Patients developing cata-
racts, and patients with
other conditions-macular
degeneration, diabetic
retinopathy, glaucoma optic
atrophy, for instance-tend
to be ultra-sensitive to light.
This discomfort in seeing,
accompanied by a reduction
in clarity caused by the ab-
normal eye condition itself,
may also make it difficult to
adapt to changing levels of
light.
The ultra-sensitive eye is
particularly affected by the
blue portion of visible light
and ultraviolet energy, Ordi-
nary sunglasses are often in-
adequate to eliminate this
problem.
Photochromatic lenses are
now available that have the
ability to selectively filter
out ultraviolet energy and
blue light while permitting
the rest of the light to pass
through. These lenses also
adapt to varying intensities
of light-darkening for the
outdoors and clearing for in-
doors.

EAR WAX IS THE a
"SNEAK THIEF OF SOUND"

Many hearing problems can be due to excessive ear
wax. One way that ear wax can impair your hearing is
as the hairs lining the ear canals grow coarser and
stronger they might eventually form a barrier and
prevent the wax from getting out. This, of course, will
also diminish sounds trying to get in.
If you do suspect a hearing problem of any kind. the
first step is to consult your physician to find out the
cause. Should it turn out to be a build up of ear wax
there are products he can suggest to remove existing
wax, prevent build up, and help you practice good ear
hygiene.

Sharks Win


After a week in which the
Sharks played three do-or-die
tournament basketball
games, it has now boiled to
just one game which stands
between the State and the*
opportunity to enter the State
Class 2-A tournament next
week.
The Sharks nudged the
Blountstown Tigers out of
contention last Friday night
in Wakulla, after the Tigers
came within two points of
upsetting the Sharks.
Blountstown, always one of
the toughest of opponents in a
tournament situation, led the
Sharks by one point at half
time and the score was tied
at the end of the first and
third periods of play. But the
Sharks managed to come up
with a two-point margin
when the final buzzer sound-
ed, giving them a 55-53 win.
It was nip and tuck for both
teams throughout the first
three periods, with the
Sharks pulling the game out
with less than a minute left
on the clock,
Durey Cadwell paced the
Sharks with 16 points. Josh
Jenkins added 11 points and
Dexter Baxter and Michael
Pittman each had 10.
Curtis Maines led the Tig-


ers with his 16 points.

Things didn't get any eas-
ier Saturday night, when the
Sharks,met Wakulla in the
District championship. Like
Blountstown, the Sharks had
already defeated Wakulla
twice during the season, but
the War Eagles came at the
Sharks like' they had the
Sharks' number: and they
almost did.
The Eagles jumped on the
Sharks early. and put six
points on the board before the
Sharks could get uncranked.
But the Sharks battled back
and with 34 seconds left in the
first period, Josh Jenkins
made a three point play good
and converted one of two free
throws to give the Sharks a
one point lead by the end of
the quarter.
In the second period, the
lead changed back and forth.

Proper Soil pH Important to Growth


Fla. Bank Performs

Best In Two Areas
Ted Cannon, president of the Florida National Bank
here in Port St. Joe, is shown holding two awards presented
to the local, bank at a recent state-wide meeting of the
Florida group .in Boca Raton.
The plaques represent the Port St. Joe bank's first
place, accomplishments among the Florida National Banks
in Best. Market Share performance'and Best Non-Interest
Performance to Plan among all of the Florida Banks. The
banks compete for top awards in seven different categories
.each year.
The local- bank attained 128 percent of its planned
earnings for the year and had the top percentage among the
group in its market share of banking business. *



Dist. Science Fair


BY ROY LEE CARTER
County Extension Director
Sometimes plants grow
poorly for no apparent rea-
son. A healthy plant can be
set in what seems to be a
good soil, can receive plenty
of sunlight and water, and
still look sickly and perform
poorly. If you have areas
around your home where
plants react this way, check
for a soil problem, especially
the wrong soil reaction or pH.
My information for this arti-
cle was provided by Exten-
sion Horticulturist Dr.
Robert J. Black of the
University Of Florida..
Now, your next question is
what is pH? pH is nothing
more than a chemist's short-
hand for describing the
amount of hydrogen in the
soil. The capital letter "H" is
the chemical symbol for
hydrogen, and pH is a figure
describing the concentration
of hydrogen in the soil, which
in turn determines the acidi-
ty of the soil.
A simple numerical scale
is used to express soil pH.
The scale goes from 0.0 to
14.0. The midpoint, pH 7.0 is
the value for pure water
which is called neutral-


CARTER
pure water is neither acid nor
alkaline. Figures below 7 on
the scale indicates acid or
"sour" soils and the lower
the number the more acid the
soil. Each whole number
drop in pH denotes ten times
the acidity. For example, a.
soil having a pH of 5 is ten
times more acid .than one
having a pH at 6. Numbers
above 7 indicate alkaline or
"sweet" soil. Again, the
higher the number the more
alkaline the soil.
Two good examples of acid
and alkaline liquids are
orange juice and sea water.
Orange juice has a pH, of
about 3.7. (very acid) while


sea water has a pH of 7.9
(slightly alkaline).
Soil pH is very important
because it influences several
soil properties which directly
effects growth of plants. Soil
pH effects soil bacteria,
nutrient leaching and avail-
ability of toxic elements.
Most plants have a range of
tolerance to pH. Plant nu-
trients are generally most
available in the pH range of
5.5 to 6.5. This is also a good
range, for soil bacteria, and
most important. this is the
best range for most plants.
Certain plants thrive best
on acid or alkaline 'soils
having pH values out of the
usual "best" range. For
example, azalea, begoniavil-
lea, crotor,' dogwood; gar-
denias. hibiscus, holly and
magnolias grow best in soils
having a pH below 5.5. These
plants grow poorly and many
*have yellow leaves in areas
where soils are ,alkaline. In
contrast, cabbage palms,
yucca, sea grape and many
other plants grow quite well
on alkaline soils.
A pH determination will
tell. whether your soil is
within a range that produces
good growth but it is not an


indication of fertility. If the
pH is not optimum, it can be
raised or lowered by using
chemicals available to all
homeowners.
If excess alkalinity exists
near the house, the only
solution is to remove the soil
and replace' t with a more
suitable material. If the soil
is too alkaline because of
liming or a minimum of
natural alkalinity, several
acid-forming materials can
be used to reduce the soil pH.
Super-fine dusting or wet-
table sulfur can be used to
acidify.a soil. About 10 lbs. of
sulfur applied over a 1000 sq.
ft. area will decrease a sandy
soil one unit in pH. like from
7.0 -to 6.0. Sulfur. must be
washed into the soil immedi-
ately after application or it
will severely burn grass or.
shallow plant roots,, Even
with the utmost care some
burn may occur .after an
application of sulfur. The.
. best approach is to apply an
acid forming fertilizer such
.as ammonium sulfate. This
material applied at the rate
of 5 lbs. per 1000 sq. ft. of area
will acidify the soil without
burning the grass.


Normally, lime or dolomite
is used to increase the pH or
sweeten the soil. Lime con-
tains calcium carbonate
while dolomite contains both-
calcium and magnesium car-
bonate. Another material,'
hydrated lime, can be used
for quick change in soil pH
but it can severely burn
plants and is seldom recom-
mended for home use.
To increase the pH one
unit. say from 5 to 6, apply


about 50 lbs. of dolomite, or
lime over a 1000 sq. ft. area.
Lime materials are slow to
react so six, months may be
required before the soil pH
rises.
To sum up the pH problem
follow these steps. First, find
out the pH value of the soil
where planting is planned
(labs or kits are available for
pH determination). Second,
learn the pH performance or
ornamentals to be planted.

Civil Defense Director Lar-
ry Wells opened the meeting
with prayer and led the
pledge of allegiance to the
ag.
Upon motion by Comm.
Owens, second by Comm.
Branch and unanimous vote
the Board approved the
minutes of January 8, 1985.
Pursuant to advertisement
to hold a public hearing to
consider adoption of a resolu-
tion concerning the county
requiring a 100 ft. easement
on Saul's Creek Road, the.
Chairman asked for public
comment. After discussion
by Jake Varne, attorney for
M. K. Ranches, County At-
torney William J. Rish, and
the Board, and public com-
ment, Comm. Branch moved
the Board adopt resolution
Number 85-3, which is on file
in the Clerk's Office.
Calvin Tharpe, represent-
ing the White City Communi-
ty Church, stated the church
is requesting a property
exchange with the county for
the county property, located
on 4th Street in White City,
stating St. Joe Paper Com-
pany has tentatively agreed'
to sell them a .piece of
property adjacent to the
county's property. Tharpe
then presented a drawing of
the property the church
wishes to obtain from the
county. Comm. Branch
stated when the county ac-
quired this property from St.
Joe Paper Company its plans
were to use it for a recreation
area, due to requests from
citizens in White City.
Comm. Traylor and Branch
stated the Board needed to
check into this matter. At-
torney Rish stated he would
check the deeds and try to
have an answer in a few
days.
Willard Richards, of High-
land View, stated there was
one remaining member of
the Highland View Water
District Commission who had
been appointed by the Gov-
ernor with the other mem-
bers being volunteer, and
inquired what can be done to
abolish this water district
and place it under the control
of the Board of County
Commission. The attorney
replied the Highland View
Water District Commission
was created' by law (act of.
the legislature) and both the
Highland View Water Dis-
trict Commission and the
Board of County Commission
could adopt resolutions re-
questing the legislature
change this law.
Willard Richards inquired
when the Board was going to
place a garbage trailer in
.Highland View. The Chair-
man stated the Board had
previously placed a garbage
trailer in Highland View on a
piece of property Comm.
Branch had obtained from St.
Joe Paper Company; how-
ever, residents weren't satis-.
fied and the Board had
removed the trailer. Chair-
man 'Money also stated he
had recommended those in
opposition of this site help
locate a suitable garbage
trailer site in this area.
Charles Bostick, of Wewahit-
chka, asked when the Board
could place a garbage trailer
in the Williamsburg Subdivi-
sion area in Wewahitchka.
Upon Comm. Birmingham's
inquiry, Comm. Branch who
has departmental responsi-
bility of the Mosquito Control
Department, stated the coun-
ty now has an available
garbage trailer. Comm.
Birmingham stated he would
callCFICO Farms requesting
use of their land for a
garbage trailer site after
Bostick informed him the
general location suitable to
the people in this area.
Charles Bostick, of Willi-
amsburg Subdivision, Wewa-
hitchka, and other citizens
were present before, the
Board with Bostick speaking
for the group, stating they
had previously requested the
Board establish single mem-
ber election districts in Gulf
County. Bostick stated they
did not think this issue would
pass on referendum election
ballot and asked the Board to
discuss and approve this
request now. Chairman


.Money suggested the Board
call a special workshop meet-
ing to study this matter and
inform Bostick of the Board's
decision at the next day
meeting. After further dis-
cussion by the Board and the
attorney of recent changes in
the law concerning single
member election districts,
the attorney advised the
Board could not just adopt a
resolution approving single
member districts, but that it
had to be decided by referen-
dum election or by the court


if someone filed a court suit
against the county. After
further consideration by the
Board Comm. Birmingham
moved the Board place this
question on the next regular
election ballot. Comm. Tray-
lor seconded the motion and
it passed unanimously.
Comm. Branch stated Mos-
quito Control Department
Director Graves wasn't pre-
sent and had not made a
recommendation to the
Board at this time concern-
ing a job opening for one
laborer (permanent position)
at the Mosquito Control De-
partment.
Clerk Gates reported the
Board had received a letter
from Ned Ailes, Executive
Director, Gulf County Gui-
dance Clinic Incorporated,
concerning a change in the
,Baker Act Statute relating to
patient transportation, effec-
tive January 1, 1985, whereby
the governing board of each
county is authorized to con-
tract with private transpor-
tation companies for the
transportation. of mental
health patients to and from a
treatment 'facility. The at-
torney pointed out part of this
statute states county and
municipal enforcement and
correctional personnel and
'equipment shall not be used
to transport patients adjudi-
cated mentally incompetent
or found by the court to meet
the criteria for involuntary
placement pursuant to sta-
tute 394.467 (1) except in
small rural counties where
there is no cost efficient
alternatives, and stated he
would research this law and
report back to the Board as to
if Gulf- County would be
affected by this change.
Clerk Gates reported Bill
McGill of the Capital Area
Community Action Agency,
met with him concerning the
use of Grant Funds for the
project entitled Direct Emer-
gency Assistance Program,
as previously approved by
the Board on January 8, 1985
(Resolution 85-1).
Clerk Gates reported
Courthouse Maintenance Su-
perintendent Charlie Presley
informed him Health Depart-
ment personnel had called
requesting he pick up a
refrigerator from the Port St.
Joe Health Center and a copy
machine from the Wewahit-
chka Health Center, which he
presently has in storage and
asks for the Board's instruc-
tion (repair, etc.) concerning
equipment. Comm. Owens
said he would take care of
this matter.
Clerk Gates stated there.
were many changes occur-
ring in the Clerk's office and
asked the Board to approve
him advertising to hire a
finance officer, stating he
thought they would be able to
pay a finance officer through
increased efficiency. 'Clerk
'Gates stated we've outgrown
our computer system pur-
chased in 1972 and he also
discussed changes in the law
making the Clerk responsible
for enforcement of Child
Support payments, with in-
creased fees for late pay-
ment. Clerk Gates then re-
quested the Board agree at
this time to amend the county
budget at a later date in
order for him to hire a
finance officer. Comm.
Owens moved the Board
advertise to hire a finance
officer. Comm. Birmingham
seconded the motion for
discussion, asking if the
Board is hiring a finance
officer or the clerk is hiring a
finance officer. Clerk Gates
replied he was hiring a
finance officer but request-
ing the Board amend his
budget later, with the salary
to be paid from excess fees.
Comm. Birmingham stated
he did not think the Board
needed to advertise for this
position and withdrew his
second to the motion. Comm.
Traylor then seconded the
motion. Comm. Birmingham
then suggested the Board
agree to the Clerk's request
but not .ote on it. After
further discussion, Comm.
Owens withdrew his motion.
Building Inspector Manuel
reported he was prepared to
advertise for wells to be
installed at the Buckhorn
Landfill. Building Inspector
Manuel also reported the
Beaches Water System was
'ready 'for connections to
homes and that some proper-
ty owners were dissatisfied
with the location of the water
meters. Building Inspector
Manuel then requested the
county issue plumbing per-
mits at no cost for the first
time connections (only per-
sons who have presently paid
water deposits) to the Beach-
es Water System, to make
sure all the initial connec-


tions are performed proper-
ly, with any other inspections
to be made through normal
procedure and fee.
Building Inspector Manuel
presented a proposal to
amend the county building
inspection ordinance by
changing the permit fees, as
under the present fees the
developer is paying. less
permitting fees than single
home owners. The new sche-
dule is on file in the Clerk's
office.


After discussion by the
Board, Comm. Owens moved
the Board exempt permit
fees for storage areas con-
structed in conjunction with
residential construction.
Comm. Traylor seconded the
motion and it passed unani-
mously. Comm. Birmingham
then moved the Board adver-
tise to hold public hearings to
consider amending the
county building ordinance,
changing building inspection
permit fees as proposed by
Building Inspector Manuel.
Comm. Owens seconded the
motion and it passed unani-
mously.
At Building Inspector De-
Wayne Manuel's request, the
Board approved Manuel's
travel to a building conferen-
ce' in Tampa, Florida on
February 5 thru 13, 1985.
Clerk Gates reportedcat its
last meeting the Board ap-
proved the Civil Defense
Office operating as a full-.
time office to include admini-
stration of the food distribu-
tion program and received a
letter .from Civil Defense
Director Wells stating,
"Please not that the 'Civil
Defense Director position
was approved by the Gulf'
County Board of County
Commissioners to become a
full-time position on January
8, 1985. This reflects a salary
change of the director from
$325.72 every two weeks to
$651.44 every two weeks."
Clerk Gates reported this is a
request for an annual salary
of $16,937.44. Comm. Owens
moved the Board approve
this salary request. Comm.
Traylor.seconded the motion
and it passed unanimously.
Comm, Branch discussed
Wells ,reporting at the last
Board meeting that in addi-
tion to the Civil Defense
Department's present bud-
get, the County would' be
paying approximately
$4,700.00 plus receive match-
ing Civil Defense funds to
operate the full-time office.
Comm. Branch asked if the
matching Civil Defense
Funds to operate this full-
time office had been verified.
Civil Defense Director Wells
stated it had been verified
and the county would receive
more. than first anticipated.
The'Clerk stated the minutes
reflected the Civil Defense
Department secretarial posi-
tion being approved at full-
time basis and inquired if the
Civil Defense Director was
increasing her salary. Civil
Defense Directoir Wells
stated the secretary position
was paid an hourly rate and
she would be working more
hours on dafull-time basis.
After discussion by At-
torney Rish, Building Inspec-
tor Manuel, and the Board,
Comm. Birmingham moved
the Board exempt building
permit fees for storage and
miscellaneous (decks, board-
walks, etc.) detached from
single family residences.
Comm. Traylor seconded the
motion and it passed unani-
mously.
Comm. Owens reported
Mr. Fairchild of Monticello,
Florida had 48 inch metal
bridge spans at a cost of
$4,800.00 each, which would
be delivered to the site but
not installed. Comm. Owens
asked if any. of the Commis-
sioners could go with the
Road Superintendent on
Thursday, January 24 to
inspect these bridges and
make a recommendation to
the Board concerning using
these type bridges for re-
placement of the Pleasant
Rest Cemetery Bridge and
the bridge on Road 5 in the
Stone Mill Creek area at the
next board meeting. Comm.
Birmingham agreed to travel
with the Road superintendent
to view these' bridges if
possible. Comm. Owens also
reported he had requested
the Road Superintendent to
obtain the measurement of
all bridges which need to be
installed throughout the
county.
Comm. Owens discussed
closing the bridge on Road 5
in the Stone Mill Creek area.
At Comm. Branch's sugges-
tion, Comm. Birmingham
agreed to order pilings and
have the Mosquito Control
Department set them under
the bridge. After further
discussion of the state pre-
viously condemning this
bridge and at the advice of
the attorney, the Board
agreed for Road Commis-
sioner. Birmingham to have
condemned signs (enter at
your own risk) installed at
this bridge until it is properly
repaired.
Comm. Owens reported he
had talked with Beaches
Water System Project En-
gineer Gunn and the system
will be completed in ten days


to two weeks. Comm. Owens
then discussed change order
requests for the water sys-
tem, stating FHA denied
Barbara Eells request for a
two inch water line without
payment for the line and Ms.
Eells decided that she did not
want the two inch line,
requesting her $75.00 deposit
'fee be refunded. Comm.
Owens stated FHA had also
denied Mr. Butler's change
order request. The Chairman
then instructed the Clerk


Commission

refund Ms. Eells deposit and
notify Project Engineer
Gunn of the Board's action.
Comm. Branch asked City
Commissioner Wesley Ram-
sev. City of Port St. Joe. if the
city has plans to renovate the
scout hut as he had been
asked about this due to the
scout hut being used as a
voting precinct. Ramsey said
the city had discussed re-
placing the scout hut with
another building, but first
having Bob Simon. of the
Waste Wafer Treatment
Plant, get someone to test the
weight load of the soil before
building anything.
Comm. Branch stated the
Board has a proposed agree-
ment with the City of Port St.
Joe for the city to provide
billing for the Beaches Water
System, however the Board
has not hired anyone to read
meters and maintain the
system. After discussion the
Chairman and Commissioner
Branch agreed to meet to
discuss this as soon as
possible.
Comm. Branch stated the
Board had previously re-
quested the .Highland View
Water District Commission
to check the fire hydrants in
Highland View as it had been
brought to the Board's atten-
tion that many of the fire
hydrants do not work. How-
ever, the Board had received
no reply to date from the
Water Commission. Willard
.Richards, of. the Highland
View Fire Department, re-
ported he and another mem-
ber of the fire department
had checked all fire hydrants
and the only ones not working
were one located near Raf-
field's and one on the street
behind the Highland View
Elementary School. Comm.
Branch stated this commis-
sion needed to be active as
the Beaches Water System
was near completion, and
connections would also be
made from this main line to
the Highland View Water
System.
Comm. Traylor reported
the roof at the front door of
the Health Department was
leaking. After discussion of
the Board's recently having

perintendent Presley to re-,
view this and make a recom-
mendation to the Board.
The Chairman reported the
County Agent Roy Lee Carter

letter concerning his request
for a salary raise for. his
secretary and asked the
Board to take action on the
request at this meeting. Upon
the request of the Chairman
the clerk read the letter
aloud, which stated the Cal-
houn County Extension Sec-
retary had 16 years experi-
ence and her yearly salary is
$12,192.00. Carter's secretary
has 26 years experience and
her present salary is
$14,945.84 and he wants to
increase her salary to
S$18,047.03 which is figured by
using the Calhoun County
Extension Agent secretary's
salary base plus four percent
per year for 10 years. No
action taken.
The Chairman reported

that the Senior Citizens Asso-
ciation is in need of tires for

Faith Without Fellowship, Is It Possible?
acuigohrsoweedn


,snip.
According to the way Jesus
saw things, just about the
worst thing that could hap-
pen to a Christian was to be
denied the fellowship of other
believers. Not being allowed
to worship with the Church
was a punishment. In fact it
was the strongest discipline
Jesus or Paul allowed in the
Church.
According to the Bible,
faith without fellowship is a
terrible thing. Church history
supports the notion that it


accusing others or defending
ourselves. We should be
asking, "How can I help?".


. We need to take time and
be patient. We can learn to be'
assertive without being
threatening. We can witness
to our- faith by living it. We
can invite a lapsed Christian
to sit beside .us in worship.
Needless to say, our efforts
must be saturated in prayer:
Our prayers must be backed


up by trust in God. We are to
focus on the process while
God determines the result.
If the Church will be
faithful in its ministry, the
paradox of believers in self-
exile will disappear. The
body will have new unity, and
common goals. Worship will
take on new meaning be-
cause, "Where two or three
are gathered together in my
name, there I am in the midst
of them."


r


.Vu YLIUU' ,LIJU al v pqul


just aren't turned on by
religion.
I can understand the mo-
tives of people in both of
these groups. But there is a
third category which really
confuses me. They claim to
be godfearing Christians, yet
they rarely get the urge to
worship in the fellowship of
the Church.
It's easy to see why a
person who is openly hostile
to religion would refuse to go
to Church. Such an individual
is simply living a life that
harmonizes with his philoso-
phy.
And I can sympathize with
a person who has not yet
enjoyed a religious awaken-
ing. They think a religious
awakening is, what happens
when the preacher finally
finishes his sermon.
On a few occasions I have
seen those religious deviates
of the first group change
their way of thinking when a
crisis strikes. Under the right
conditions, a dreadful event
will melt their stubborn
hearts. A traumatic experi-
ence, like a hospitalization,
the death of a loved one, or a
prison sentence can bring on
a total reversal of attitude.
Tragedies don't guarantee
repentance, but when repen-
tance occurs it is sincere and
dramatic. The ones who are
thus affected usually become
strong churchmen.
These same conditions can
alter the lives of wishy washy
folks too. Under normal'
circumstances they have a
hard time making a serious
commitment., But when a
disaster brings the world
crashing down around them,.
they frequently turn to God
with renewed interest and
devotion.
At this point I need to say
that folks in these two
categories are also frequent-
ly reached by sympathetic
friends. And that's the best
way! Loving friends can
usually reach uncommitted
people because their concern
is genuine. Their empathy is
felt, respected, arid received
with gratitude.
When people who are out-
side the fellowship finally -
receive their faith,- they'
almost universally seek'
Christian fellowship. They'
want to be with other Chris-
tians'in worship settings.
Let's turn our attention
back to the thi'd category for
a few moments. They, are the
ones who say they are
Christians, but they reject
fellowship. They see themsel-
ves as free thinkers, 'the
pride of American individu-
alism. They are the Lone
Ranger Christians. They re-
sent any effort of the Church
tp add structure to their faith
and practice.
This article is no doubt
upsetting to people in that
class. If one of them happens
to read -these words, he
undoubtedly' resents the fact
that his motives are being
discussed. -:
The odd thing about these
Lone Rangers is the fact that
they reject structured fellow-
ship with other Christians,
while in every other way they
lead disciplined and well
ordered lives. They wouldn't
think of resisting fellowship
at school, on the job, or in
recreation. They are quick to
lend a hand to those in need.
They are often the backbone
of civic clubs, and in general
they are productive citizens.
Somehow these good folks
haven't grasped the. concept
of the Church being the Body
of Christ. St. Paul described
the Church as if it were a
human body. He made it
sound pretty silly for one part
of the body to think that it
could be superior to, inferior
to, or independent of the rest
of the body. As Paul saw it,
every part of the body must
work in concert with all of the
.other parts.
This idea is in line with
what Jesus told his disciples
in Matthew 18:15-20. That's
the section where he told the
believers that an offending
brother, who would not listen
to reason, should be turned
over to the Church. If this
person failed to heed what
the Church said, he should
then be excluded from fellow-


was a punishment reserved
for miscreants and evil
doers. The effectiveness of
this discipline is reflected by
the many cases on record
where this action brought
about a change of heart in the
unruly.
That's why I find it hard to
believe that a Christian
would deliberately refuse
fellowship in a worship'set-
ting. Why would any one
choose punishment over the
liberty and privilege of wor-
ship?
To answer that question we
need to direct our attention to
some basic events which
affect human behavior.
Most of us learn to 'be
adults by observing our
parents while we are growing
up. A lot of our behavior,
good and bad, was learned at
our mother's knee.
A study, published about
three years ago, indicated
that 72 percent of the child-
ren of parents who regularly
attended Church remained
faithful. The percentage
dropped to 55 percent if only
dad attended, 15 percent if
only mom attended, and only
six percent if neither parent
attended..
It's clear "that our, role
models are decisive, in form-s
ing our attitudes. If you are
teaching your children that
Church attendance is not
vital, they probably won't
attend. And if they don't
attend, they may not learn
the truth.
There are other reasons for
non-attendance. Some folks
are inactive because they
have had a bad experience


with the Church. Maybe they
needed ministry, but were
neglected. Perhaps they
were met with insensitive
attitudes. or lack of care.
Sometimes the bad experi-
ence wasn't so passive. May-
be they met an antagonist.
who put them on the defen-
sive.
Others become inactive
because they feel socially or
culturally out of place. Many
lose interest because no one
,asked them to become invol-
ved. Some don't understand
what Church is all about, and
no one takes time to explain.
I have known some who
had a crisis of faith when
their favorite pastor moved
on. There are some who drop
out when a new form of.
worship is adopted, or the
hour of worship is changed.
Folks in these categories
often search elsewhere for
religious experience, become
dissatisfied, and drift into
.permanent inactivity.
How can concerned Chris-
tians minister to the needs of
these non-fellowshipping bre-
thren?
The first:' goal for the
Church in its ministry should
be to master and use Christ's
approach to ministry. He
always offered peace, grace
and love- without any-,
strings attached. The Church
needs a ministry of healing,
not of hauling. "
We who are in the body
need, to be accepting, listen-
ing, and understanding 'We
need to ask the question,
"How would I feel in this
situation? !'
We need to avoid either

Farmers all over America are
having a difficult time and this
is especially true ofithe farmers
of the midwest. Congress is
rapidly responding to the crisis
and approving legislation
designed to make borrowing
easier and to see them through
this crisis phase.
Our own farmers in north
Florida know that these are
tough economic times and, in
rewriting the farm bill this year,
I hope Congress will take into
account the many factors
leading to problems on the
farm.
The high value of the dollar,
certainly not the farmers fault,
is reducing our ability to export
farm commodities to Japan and
western Europe. Additionally,
weather conditions have
brought floods to some regions
and drought to other areas of
the country, playing havoc with
planting schedules and
harvesting as well.
Our farmers are not looking
for charity but they do need
federal government support
during this trying period. I am
pleased that Congress is
responding.


I was pleased that Con-
gressman Dan Rostenkowski,
Chairman of the House Ways
and Means Committee, has in-
dicated that he will cooperate
with President Reagan in ex-
pediting congressional action
on tax simplification legislation.
I strongly believe that, while we
must press ahead with budget
reduction efforts, we cannot
ignore the crying need to reform
our tax laws.
The biggest question and
hurdle to overcome is the ques-

Reports


tion as to whether or not we will
use the tax simplification effort
to raise revenues or should it be.
revenue neutral,'perhaps shift-
ing tax bills but not raising taxes
overall.
The American people have
clearly demonstrated that they
do not want any tax increases
in 1985 and it is up to Congress
and the President to reduce the
deficit by holding down govern-
ment spending.
Our tax'laws are far too
complicated and support for the
tax simplification effort has
been growing nationwide. I,
believe we should press ahead
with tax reform as we work on
budget reductions and welcome
Chairman Rostenkowski's
remarks.

Soviet President Konstantin.
Chernenko made his first public
appearance recently but he
looked extremely frail and the
appearance did nothing to halt
rumors about his ill health. With
arms negotiations set to begin
soon, it is most disturbing to
note that the Soviet head of
state does not seem capable of
guiding his nation in these I
sensitive talks.
With so much at stake for
the future of peace in the world,
Chernenko's health is of over-
riding concern. The Kremlin is
always a secretive place and it
is potentially possible that
foreign policy is not being
affected at all by his health
problems. There is no way to
know, however, what impact
his ill health and possible death
would have on Soviet-U.S. rela-
tions and we will all be monitor- i
ing this situation in the coming
weeks.
