Jeff Richards Wins

Gulf Spelling Bee

Jeff Richards, a seventh grade student of Faith
Christian School, won the Gulf County Spelling Bee
championship Thursday morning of last week, in a
spell-down with five other contestants from various Gulf
County schools.
Donna Durham, a sixth grade student of Highland
View Elementary School, came.in second in the spelling
bee, missing the word "poplar". Richards spelled it
correctly but miss-spelled the word "libel", which would
have won the match for him. Durham also missed
"libel", so Richards was given two words to spell-in
order to win the match. He then spelled rattletrapp" and
"tactful" to take the Gulf County championship and the
opportunity to represent the county in the regional
spelling bee to be held in Jacksonville.
Other contestants in the spelling bee were Patrick
Freeman, a sixth grader, who missed the word,
"beachcomber"; .Carmen Frazier, an eighth grader,
who went down on the word "mohair"; Tricia Ward, a
Wewahitchka eighth grader, who erred on "guffaw";,
and Heather Whitfield, a Wewahitchka sixthgrader,
who was disqualified, on the word, ".intolerable".
It took nearly 20 minutes to deteimine the champion
from among the six contestatiI' .
Pronouncer was Luwanl'*Patterson and judges were
Laura Geddie, Jacque Prife and Margaret Smith.

Bridge Project Is Begin.ini to Move


DOT Signing
It was nearly six years ago when the,
Department of Transportation for the State
of Florida officially "broke ground" for a
new high rise bridge across the Gulf County
Canal at Highland View. After the stakes
were driven, holding the pretty red flags for
the ceremony announcing the bridge, there
has not been the first bit of activity toward,
the bridge, which is visible to the eye. Some.
of the stakes for the original ceremony are
still there. So is the old Highland View
bridge.
But the high rise bridge dream has not
been forgotten here in south. Gulf County. It
has remained uppermost in the minds of
citizens of the county who have continuously
worked and pushed to get the work of
planning and- building the bridge started.
Thursday, March 28, the bridge will be
started.


Contract to Proceed On March 28 with Port Authority


The Port St. Joe Port Authority has
struck a deal with the Department of
Transportation to get the bridge moved up
from its 1989 schedule to a 1985 schedule by
offering to participate in the expense of
planning and. building the new bridge, to the
tune of $2 million.
Using money accumulated from inter-
est earned on money borrowed by the Port
Authority about three years ago, the reason
the Port Authority is getting involved in the
bridge building project is because the high
rise at Highland View is essential to the
.building.of anew port operation here in Port
St. Joe. The bridge is said by Port Authority
chairman George Tapper as being the key
which will unlock the door to the advance-
ment of the port. "Our hopes for future port
operations is, the ability of shipping to use
the Gulf Canal as well as the Bay and Gulf of
-Mexico. Only by building a new bridge can


the ships and ocean going barges get up the
canal to our industrial park".
The $2 million isn't to buy some time. It
is also to buy a few specifications for the
bridge which are not included in the
standard plans for a high rise bridge. The
bridge to be built here in Port St. Joe will be
taller and span a wider channel than the
standard DOT bridge.
SIGNING CONTRACT
Thursday, March 28, the Port Authority
will host the Secretary of the Department of
'Transportation, Paul Pappas, along-,with
Allen Potter, District Engineer, at a dinner
meeting, at which contracts will be signed.,
between ,the Port Authority and the
Department of Transportation, to get the
planning and construction unddr way. The
meeting will also include a dinner for the
DOT officials, to be held at the Country Club


with several local government and civic
leaders invited to attend.
Gulf County had- three new high rise
bridges on tap over the next eight or ten
years with -the Highland View span last on
the priority list. The move by the Port
Authority was instrumental in moving the
priority up and enlarging the size of the
bridge.
Although there is no time-table estab-
lished for the bridge construction as yet, it is
expected that actual construction work
should begin around the first of the year,
with.e te_remainder. of this, year.,ijyplved
with planning, engineering and -securing,
, permits .
. Members of- the Port Authority are
Tapper as chairman, E. D. Ramsey,
vice-chairman; Mrs. Laura A. Geddie,
secretary, Charles Shoaf and Rev. Otis
Stallworth.

Hearing Tonite


On White City


Bridge Location


A new bridge on State Road
71 over the Gulf Intracoastal
Waterway at White City will
be -the subject of a public
hearing March 14 at 7 p.m. in
the County Commission room
of the Gulf County Court-
house, the Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation
(DOT) has announced.
The project, with a prelimi-
nary cost estimate of $6.5
million, is scheduled for
construction in fiscal year
1986-87.
DOT has considered six
alternates and lists the con-
struction of a high-rise struc-
ture with a- 65-foot vertical
clearance as the "preferred
alternate."
"That only means that at
this stage of the planning
process this is the alternate
we think will be best for the
public pt large. This hearing
will tell us if the people
of Gulf County agree," said
District Engineer Allen Pot-
ter.
The existing F. Elgin Bay-
less bridge, a vertical-lift
bascule structure construct-
ed in 1947, has been classified
as "functionally obsolete" by
DOT standards and is costing
the state over $150,000 per
year to maintain.
The driving width of the
existing bridge is 26 feet,
allowing for minimal safety
areas. The new bridge will be
40 feet wide with two 12-foot
driving lanes and eight-foot
safety shoulders.
The new bridge will elimi-
nate traffic delays related to
marine passing since the
lift-span will be eliminated.
"The new bridge will also
provide a better hurricane
evacuation facility since
State Road 71 has been


designated as the main
north-south evacuation route
for Port St. Joe and those
areas of Gulf County situated
south of the Gulf Intracoastal
Waterway," said Potter.
"This roadway would also
- serve residents of Apalachi-
cola and surrounding sec-
tions of Franklin County
because of the high probabili-
ty that Apalachicola Bay's
causeways would be impass-
able during severe weather,"
he added.
Potter said there would be
some impacts to White City's
250 residents but said they
wouldn't be severe. "We're
looking at the relocation of
one residence and two busi-
nesses. We feel our reloca-
tion assistance program
would satisfy these people's
needs," he said.
Potter addedthat a benefit
of the high-rise alternate is
that it does not conflict with
Gulf County's plans to de-
velop the Primo de Rivera
Park and Marina on the
north shore of the waterway.
"The high-rise alternate
would allow us to jointly
develop parking areas to
benefit the planned park
project," said Potter.

After six years of waiting and maneuvering, the old
Highland View bridge replacement project is finally to get


off the ground with signing of agreement here on
Thursday, March 28. -Star photo


County





Getting





Involved


In Process for

Removal of Dam

Gulf County voted to ask to become a part of the
administrative processes which will be involved with
conducting hearings and other procedures concerning the
removal of the Dead Lakes Dam at their meeting Tuesday
morning.
Calhoun County, the other county directly involved with
the Lakes and the dam, has already taken steps to become
involved in the administrative processes involved ifn'
carrying out a decision which' was made by the
voters of both counties in a straw ballot conducted last
spring. Directions for the dam's removal has since been
handed down by the State Cabinet, with the Northwest
Florida Management District being charged with carrying
out the mechanics toward getting the dam taken out.
The Water Management District has notified both
counties .they should properly be involved in the process
since the future of the lakes affects both counties directly.
Being involved in the administrative processes gives
the county the opportunity to subpoena witnesses for giving
testimony at any of the hearings scheduled prior to removal
of the dam. The first of these hearings is scheduled for next
month. The first of the hearings will be held in the Calhoun
County Courthouse on April 17, 18 and 19.
Originally, the first of the hearings was scheduled for
Bay County, but the location has sincebeen changed to the
Calhoun County location.
The Commission instructed their attorney, William J.:
Rish, to contact Calhoun County Commission attorney, J.
David House and coordinate efforts of the two counties to
bcomme participants in the adininisfraTive processes.
Dead Lakes Water Management District member,
Tommy Williams,. and Jim Bozeman, a supporter of the
dam's removal were present at Tuesday's meeting, urging
Gulf County to take the step which would involve the county
government directly in the situation.



Gulf Deputy Hurt

Capturing Fugitive


Gulf County Deputy Sheriff
F. L. Mills was injured in the
leg at about 2:30 a.m. Tues-
day morning when he at-
tempted to get from his car to
check on two suspicious men.
Mills had stopped to inves-
tigate the two men who were
in the parking lot of Demp-
sey's Bar on the south edge of
Wewahitchka. One of the
men, Gerald Wayne Hitch-
cock, was wanted on a felony
warrant from North Agusta,
South Carolina for breach of
trust with fraudulent intent.
As Mills started to get out of
his car to place Hitchcock
under arrest, Hitchcock
slammed the car door on
Mills' leg and ran.
Hitchcock was apprehend-
ed at approximately 9:09
a.m., later in the morning


after information was re-
ceived by the Sheriff's De-.
partment that Hitchcock was'
in a residence outside of
Wewahitchka.
Gulf County Sheriff Al
Harrison said Hitchcock has
been charged with battery on
a law enforcement officer
and resisting an officer with
violence in addition to the
South Carolina charges.
Bond was set on the Gulf
County charges at $20,000.
The Sheriff's office was
assisted by Captain Jimmy
Williams of the Franklin
County Sheriff's department
and the Florida Game and
Fresh Water Fish Commis-
sion- and the Wewahitchka
Police Department in appre-
hending Hitchcock.


Several Missing Items Are Recovered


Sheriff Al Harrison report-
ed.to the County Commission
Tuesday he was able to find
some of the missing inven-
tory items, but that some
were still missing and, in his
opinion, had been disposed of
some time ago but not
removed from the inventory
list.
What started the search for
missing inventory items was
a report by the auditors that


a radio, a calculator and
some records were missing
from the Property Apprais-
ers' office. Then, it was
reported by new Civil De-
fense director, Larry Wells,
that several items were
missing from the last report-
ed inventory of his office,
including a generator.
Harrison said Tuesday he
had recovered the radio and
calculator, but was not able


to find the missing generator.
He reported it had been
stored for several years in
the old county jail in Wewa-
hitchka, but has since disap-
peared.
He reported the radio and
calculator were packed in
former Appraiser Joyce Su-
ber's personal items by those
helping her vacate the office
and were taken off. "The
items have been returned",
Harrison said.
In the meantime, Sheriff
Harrison was instructed by
the County Commission to
remain alert for the location
of the items still missing but
not to conduct any concen-
trated search for the items.
Wells pointed out that some
of. the items are approxi-
mately 15 years old and have
probably been discarded long
ago. There have been several
Civil Defense directors in
that time and most likely the
records weren't kept up to


OVERSTREET VFD
Troy Davis of Overstreet
made his third straight meet-
ing Tuesday, trying to get
help in securing an operable
fire truck for the small
community. The Commission
has agreed to secure a
surplus truck from the state
Forest Service, but that
could take a year or more.
Tuesday, Davis said he had
found a used truck which was
in good condition and asked
the county to lend the com-
munity money to buy it. The
Commission agreed to ask
for bids on a used truck for
the department, but gave
the department, but gave no
when the bids were received.
"In the meantime, while
waiting for the bids, we must
search our budget and see if
we have the money to lend".
Branch, who made the
motion to call for the bids
said, "This community needs


a truck worse than White
City did and we found money
to lend them. White City had
a truck which would operate
at the time. Overstreet does-
n't. We need to try to help
these people out."
RADIO SYSTEM
The Commission will also
be looking for money to
purchase a new base radio
station for the Sheriff's De-
partment, after Tuesday's
meeting.
Sheriff Al Harrison report-
ed the base station was
becoming more troublesome
and said, "We have a prob-
lem here which needs some-
thing done about it." The
Sheriff said the base station
is the only means of com-
munications for the county
ambulance service, Mexico
Beach police, Wewahitchka
Police as well as the Sheriff's
Department. "We're having
more and more problems
with reaching officers in the


north end of the county.
Sometimes we just can't hear
them nor can they hear us",
Harrison said.
The Sheriff suggested the
county consider leasing a
system until the new budget
comes into effect because of
the need for the equipment.
Commissioner Branch
said, "We knew this system
was going bad, but we didn't
realize it was in such a shape
as you describe". Branch
suggested the county call for
bids for the station and in the
meantime try to locate mon-
ey to pay for it, rather than
lease the equipment.
SUIT SETTLED
Attorney William Rish said
Dr. Joe Sapala's representa-
tives have agreed to drop a
suit against Gulf County, if
the county will agree to pay
$5,000 of medical examina-
tion funds Dr. Sapala char-
ges the county failed to pay.

.: Is a state-run lottery really the
best solution to Florida's need for
money for schools? Does Florida
.really need money for its schools
that badly? Can Florida's people
really live with themselves if they
legalize this type of gambling?
It seems as if the state and its
voters are going to get the, chance
and maybe that's good. Then
..again, maybe it's not. Our law
-makers make a big thing out of
letting us make decisions like this,
which may cost them votes if they
vote the wrong way, but they take
upon themselves the decisions
about forcing us to pay for and
accept services which we haven't
really asked for.
One "service" we didn't ask
for is a state-run lottery. We could
see the opportunity to support or
-oppose a lottery'coming when the
state was bombarded a few months
ago about those "lucky" northern-
ers winning their million dollar
lottery pots.
There was no mention of the
poor people who gambled away
money they couldn't afford and
didn't receive a thing in return
,. .except the opportunity to swell the
money coffers of their state.
The pro lottery people have

support in their first step toward

Ages

Senator Jim Scott of Fort Lauder-
dale who says, "It's about time for
Florida- to come out of the dark
ages".
One of the selling points for the
pro-lottery people is that the state
currently has betting at horse
tracks, dog tracks and Jai-Alai
frontons and it hardly hurts at all.
Then, a little later on, if they're
successful in securing permission
for lotteries, it will be, "We already
have horse track betting, dog track
betting, Jai-Alai fronton betting
and lottery betting. A few more
dollars spent at a casino gambling
won't hurt anything .."
Rather than Senator Scott's
statement concerning Florida,
"coming in out of the dark ages",
an adoption of state-run lotteries
will be Florida "slipping farther
into the dark ages."
Estimates are that the state's
schools would receive $280 million
from the lottery operation in
Florida. That's, a mighty small
amount of money to sell our
birthright of a family vacation
state for. It sort of reminds us of
Esau, back in Genesis who thought
a bowl of soup" to assuage his
hunger was enough reason to sell
his birthright.
-But then, we aren't allowed to
dwell on things of the Bible in our
schools, so how are we, to know of
the folly of such things as state-run
lotteries?

Deeper Into the


I'm Gaining Ammunition for My War


AFTER WHAT CAME out in the
paper the other day, I guess it's about
time for my annual column on the
evils of the ground coffee bean.
In my estimation, there's not
much which tastes worse than one of
those -steaming, aromatic, rich, full-
bodied cups of coffee. I have to say
again that if it tasted half good as the
advertisements say or half as good as
it smells a brewing, they wouldn't be
able to grow enough coffee to meet the
demand, even if they planted all the
wheat lands of the mid-west in coffee
trees. I know Brazil couldn't produce
enough. The nation isn't big enough.
There's no way Columbia could
have room for enough coffee trees to
meet the demand if they are going to
try and keep up with the demand for
their chief exports, cocaine and
marijuana.
There's not much that smells
better early in the morning than a pot
of coffee perking on the stove. There's
not much which tastes worse, either. I
can't see how even those who like
coffee can force a cup full of that evil
tasting brew down their gullet first


thing in the morning.
I KNEW THERE was some divine
reason which was keeping me from
acquiring the habit of drinking coffee.

Frenchie and Mary Harrison will
gather at our house every Saturday to
make up some flower doo-dad to put in
the church on Sunday morning and
will work like little beavers to get-
through ... just so they can get at the
pot of coffee brewing on the stove.
They'll sit and kill the whole pot. I
don't know if they make up flowers to
get to share a pot of coffee or save the
pot of coffee until they get through so
they WILL get through.
Coffee does strange things to
people.

I FOUND OUT MY reason for
shunning coffee last week, however. I
knew it wasn't good for me, but as
good as it seems to be to so many
people, there had to be something
wrong with it. It had to be harmful.
There was no way out of it. The track
record so far is that if anything tastes
good, feels good or looks good, it is
injurious to your health or your
morals one or the other. In many
cases, it's bad for both.
Now, I learn that coffee-just two


an
cups a day for a moderately inactive
man-is bad for your heart.
There you are.
These days, almost everything we
happen to like is bad for your heart or
causes cancer. I sometimes think
we're put on the earth to die from
cancer or heart trouble since there
are so many things which are
ambrosia to man, which cause the
diseases.
According to the article I read,
the researchers at Stanford, which
released their findings in the matter,
don't know what causes the heart
problems yet.
They just know that coffee is the
culprit; and from the way it tastes, I
can believe it.
Of course, the release says their
mildly inactive middle-age man has
more. chloesterol and a protein
associated with heart trouble, but it's
the coffee which triggers the whole
thing.
You just watch: the next thing you
know, they'll say bran flakes break-
fast food causes heart trouble and
then I'll be in real trouble.

KESEY COLBDRT

Bright and early the next
morning we go down to the
sawmill to pick up our
lumber. I pull in by a stack
that looks like red oak and
Wayne saunters over and
says "You pulled down a lit-
tle too far back her up a
bit."
I was sitting there thinking
"That's easy for you to say"
but I said "Hold on just a
minute, I'll circle around the
mill and be right back." This
time I got it close enough;
we got our lumber, shot the
breeze with ole Wayfie for a
few minutes and then got the
Sheck out of there.
That afternoon George
takes us around to the lady's
house to pick up the antique
furniture. Boy howdy, the
antiques were nice and Mrs.
Mays was even nicer. Ted
and I loaded bedroom suites,
a bow front dresser, a lady's
writing desk, an office desk,
chairs, a super looking old
library table and I don't
know what all else for the
better part of the afternoon.
Mrs. Mays even threw in a
New Haven camel back desk
clock when I told her my
wife would be somewhat dis-
appointed if I didn't come
back with a clock. We never
would have got all of that

Letter to
The Editor:
March 11, 1985
Mr. Wesley Ramsey, Editor
Dear Wesley:
At the Florida State Soci-
ety Daughters of the Ameri-
can Revolution Conference
held last week in Jackson-
ville our local chapter, St.
Joseph Bay received the
first place award forf its
Press Book. As Press Book
and Public Relations Chair-
man it was my happy honor
to accept this award,
Without your and Fren-
chie's cooperation and that
of your whole staff of course
this would not have been
possible.
On behalf of the chapter I
wish to say a special "Thank
You!",
Next fall St. Joseph Bay
Chapter celebrates its tenth
birthday. The Star has con-
tributed so much as we have
worked to accomplish DAR
goals-the preservation of
our country's history, educa-
tion for citizenship and love
of our country.
We do appreciate all you
have done.
Sincerely,
Mrs. Paul Fensom

THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla. THURSDAY, MAR. 14, 1985


Recovered (Continued from Page 1)


Dr. Sapala sued Gulf Coun-
ty for what he called failure
to pay for autopsies when he
was medical examiner. Gulf
charged the county had not
been notified of the extra
charges to be made and felt
some of the autopsies were
not necessary under Florida


law.
The case was to have come
up in court next week, if the
county had not agreed to the
settlement amount.

stuff in the truck if George
hadn't supervised the whole
operation.
We left very early Sunday
morning with the intention of
pulling into St. Joe around 4
o'clock that afternoon. We
were making good time and
as a matter of fact we were
talking about what a good
trip it had been when the
truck quit on us. Son-of-a-
gun, we're tooling down the
highway about 4 miles north
of Blakely, Georgia and the
blame truck just up and dies
on us. Couldn't be ant of gas


-we'd just filled up.
We get her off the road,
tried to crank it one more
time, it backfires and the
next thing I know Ted is out-
side yelling the grass under-
neath the truck is on fire. I'm
thinking, Shucks, we'd eaten
our last marshmallows way
back about Columbus, then I
thought about the gas tank. I
jump out, take one-look at
Ted trying to stomp out that
fire and I head out across
one of Early County, Geor-
gia's freshly plowed fields.

the office to help small

record keeping. "You want

controlled the boards at both
ends of the court Saturday

WHAT IS YOUR Ua
PAIN QUOTIENT?
Pain, your body's signal to you that something is
wrong is not tolerated equally by the sexes. It is far
more painful for women than for men. Also more
painful for the young and for orientals than for the
I blacks and whites. A recent experiment in pain
toleranee found that sex was the most important
factor in determining how well a person can stand
pain. Even the oldest men withstood pain better than
the youngest women.
Fortunately, pain relief can be equally appreciated
I by everyone and in our prescription department we
regularly stock thousands of medicines whose sole
purpose is to alleviate pain.

point necessary to win the
game for the Bulldogs. De-
metre Thomas missed on a 25
foot shot with five seconds
left in the regulation game.
Thomas had tied the game at
57-57, scoring on a lay-up
after he had stolen the ball
under the Bulldog goal and
dribbled the length of the
court for the score.
The Sharks had played
with as much as a 10 point
deficit for the game until
Michael Pittman gave the
Sharks a one point lead with
a little more than a minute
left. Pittman sat out most of
the first half after turning his
ankle early in the first
period. He was taped up and
hobbled through the second
half but part of his extreme
quickness was just not there
when the Sharks needed it.
Pittman, who had scored 42
points, on Tuesday of last
week against Jefferson Coun-
ty, had only 10 points Satur-
day night.
Playing to a packed
house; the Sharks tried to
stall for the last shot in the
overtime period, but the
Bulldogs stole the ball and
Long was fouled. He made
his one point at the foul line
with 45 seconds left. Pittman
then took a shot at the basket
and it bounced in,and out


with the Bulldogs controlling
the rebound. With 12 seconds
left, Long was again fouled,
but this time missed the first
of two free throws and the
Sharks had the ball again.
With two seconds left, Josh


Jenkins took one of his
off-balance, covered up
jumpers which bounced off
the rim and the game was
over.
The Sharks, who have been
deadly at the foul stipe all


season long, could make only
seven of 13 attempts count
Saturday night.
Durey Cadwell led the
Sharks scoring with his 20
points. Pittman was the only
other player scoring in dou-

Sharks Get 6 Triples In One Game with F]


Port St., Joe's baseball
team took a licking for two
games and played one of the
best games of the season in
the third one during the
Florida High tournament
held in Tallahassee last
week end.
The Sharks were out-lasted
by Florida High in a sloppy
19-12 game in the opener
Friday afternoon with the
Demons scoring 13 runs in
the middle three innings to
rc 'he Sharks.
The Sharks had the lead in
the fourth inning, but a big
five 'inning fifth for the
Demons and the Sharks bats'
going to sleep gave Florida
High the win.
The Sharks gave up seven
errors in the game, four in


the first inning, which helped.
contribute to the loss.
On the bright side, the
Sharks had 17 hits-six of
them triples-in the game,
but the errors wiped out the
gains of the hits. Five of the
six triples came in one inning
with four of them 'coming in
succession.
Jay Rish pounded out two
triples, with Kyle Pippin,
Mitch Bouington, Jim Norton
and Randy Wilder adding a
triple. Jim Norton was the
Shark's leading hitter with
four hits in five trips to the
plate. Norton had a triple,
double and two singles.
Mitch Bouington was the

Harrison said the inspector

week ago and "seemed to be
happy with what hesaw on
his last inspection", the
Sheriff said. "Hopefully we.
are on the way to getting

will leave us alone for a

The Sheriff likened his first

barefoot. "You have to watch
where you step and what you

I was in the Highway Patrol,
somebody else took care of
these things, but now I have

Toward Understanding


What Is the Reason for


Me Having to Suffer?


by The Rev. Jerry R. Hluft
Rector, St. James'
Episcopal- Church.
Port St. Joe Florida
The problem of suffering is
a tough one to understand,
especially when it gets per-
sonal. And frankly, there are
times when the problem
doesn't have good answers.
Our' traditional platitudes
don't help folks who really
are in pain.
Sometimes our suffering
finds its meaning in a re-
ward. I remember well the
days when my oldest son was
a member of his high school
cross country track team.
Watching those young fel-
lows run in every kind of
weather and over rugged
terrain made me pause in
wonder. The three mile races
were grueling. And the boys
often ended in exhausted
heaps.
To understand the motives .
for this self-inflicted torture,
you have to realize that
athletes are competing with
themselves. They all want to
reach as far and as high as
they can to become their
best. Their hours of training,
pain, and discipline are re-
warded by accomplishment
and self-esteem.
There are other kinds of
"suffering that also make us
'pause to wonder. But for
:different reasons. I am
' speaking now of involuntary
.suffering. The kind that
-doesn't appear to have a


productive end.
A few years ago an elderly
parishioner was in the final
stages of a progressive,
painful, and terminal illness.
Pain radiated from almost
every point along her spinal
column.
I visited frequently to help
her find courage as the hour
pf death approached. I want-
ed to offer. reasons for the
"why" questions that were
on her lips.
I could only give her
answers to.the "what" and
the "how" questions. I could
tell her what the doctor said
was happening in her body.
And I could tell her how he
wanted her to be treated. But.
I couldn't tell her why she
was suffering.
She was alone, old, and
poor. In her active years she
had lived a life of service to
others as a nurse. And she
had been faithful to her
Church. In short, she didn't
deserve to die that way.
Just before death overtook
her, I was standing beside
her bed, holding her hands in
mine. Her body was twisting
and contorting itself in an
uncontrollable manner. With'
effort she graciously thanked
me for coming to see her. I
felt helpless and near tears
as I tried to comfort her.
When she was able to talk
again she said something
profound. She told me that
she knew God was with her,
even in her pain. Then,
forcefully drawing my

knuckles down against her
emaciated and flattened
breasts, she began to whis-
per. Slowly, between shallow
breaths she said, "Scme-
times I think it's almost more
than I can bear."
Those were the last words I
remember hearing her say. I
waited a little longer and
after her medication had
taken effect, I kissed her and
bade her good night.
There were no relatives at'
her funeral. And when the
estate was settled her at-
torney informed us that half
of her possessions were to be
awarded to the hospital aux-
illiary and the other half to
her Church. Somehow I ex-
pected that settlement.
Some suffering leads to
obvious rewards. As when
the athlete punishes himself
while training for a race.
But other suffering leads
only to questions.
We all know .people who
have suffered grieviously.
Experience teaches us that
suffering is an unquestion-
able condition of human life:
Eventually, we are all visited
by some kind, of grief.
When suffering comes, our
most common question is
"why". I can't answer the
"why" question, but I do
know one thing. Those who
know -that Jesus has gone
before us in suffering have a
special,grace in the midst of
their own sorrows. Since
Christ himself has passed
through death, we know that
God is with us until the end.
Though the purpose of
sufferirlg.may be veiled, the
presence of God gives it
meaning. That meaning
transcends earthly reason-
ing.
Christ is of another world.
The ,standards of this world
can't supply answers to the
problem of suffering. Such
answers must come from
that other world, where our
Lord reigns in glory. Where
He gives,rest to the weary,
peace to the distressed, and
Where He wipes the tears of
those who suffer.

merce had not yet made a
decision on the county's
Small Cities Community De-
velopment Block Grant Ap-
plication for $675,000 to be
used to help rebuild Raf-
field's Fisheries, stating ele-
ven applications had been
submitted for this grant.
Brunger also reported in
order to receive additional
Economic Development Ad-
ministration funding in the
amount of one and one-half
million dollars, match money
from the Planning Council
(not the county) was re-
quired. Brunger proposed,
ue to the Planning Council's
small budget, the County
give its commitment to turn
over the $675,000 Block Grant
to the Planning Council to use
as match money to receive
the economic development,
funding. The Attorney ad-
vised if Gulf County was
awarded the $675,000 Block
Grant, the Board would only
consider turning over these
funds to the Planning Council
if the additional 1/2 million
EDA funds were awarded for
the rebuilding of Raffields,
otherwise' the County would
keep the $675,000 (as repaid
by Raffield's to the County)
for use on other projects
within the county.
County Agent Roy Lee
Carter reported on his previ-
ous request for a salary raise
for his secretary, from
$14,900 to $16,000 annually,
based on information from
the University of Florida on
state salaries for secretaries.
Carter stated that at the
board's request he had figur-
ed what his secretary's sala-
ry would be based on com-
parison with Calhoun County
.($18,000); but pointing .out
that the request liadbdeeh-for
$16,000, not $18,000. Carter
stated they were requesting
any portion of this or none.
After discussion in which
Carter stated the request for
a raise was based on number
of years worked, the Board
informed Carter a request
for salary increase would be
properly submitted when the
Board considers adoption of
its fiscal year budget and
that the County pays em-
ployees in all departments
based on job description, not
number of years worked.
Troy Davis, Overstreet
Fire Department, informed
the Board the Department's
fire truck is beyond repair
and asked the Board to
obtain a fire truck equipped
to putout a large fire. Comm.
Branch reported the Board
had previously applied to the
Division of Forestry for a fire
truck for the Overstreet Fire
Department. After discus-
sion, the Chairman requested

Parks Planning Commission,
presented information con-
cerning the Corps of Engi-
neers permit for an open
water disposal site in St.
Joseph Bay, stating the
Corps plan to dredge the
channel and dump disposal in
Shark Hole, stating accord-
ing to this information this
may cause turbidity in the
water which can disturb the
food cycle in the Bay. Child-
ers requested the Board do
the following: (1) Oppose
open water disposal any-
where in the Bay and (2)
there needs to be a study of
the Bay. Robert Nedley, of
St. Joe Paper Company and
Dave Maddox, Harbor Pilot,
Port St. Joe opposed the
request for more studies,
which have previously been
made by State and local
agencies, stating,this would
hold up the needed dredging
of the channel and the
opening of an oil terminal
which is now being planned.
At Nedley's suggestion and
Childer's agreement, the
Board agreed to let the


application for dredging the
channel continue and have
Childers review the studies
that have previously been
made. The Chairman then
directed a letter be written to
the proper authorities to
continue with the dredging in
St. Joseph Bay.

from City of Wewahitchka

dressed to Gulf County Board
of County Commission Chair-
man Eldridge Money, stating
in regards to inquiries the
City of Wewahitchka has
received regarding the ap-
pointment of a child support
investigator in the Clerk's
Office, and being this posi-
tion requires a certain quali-
ty to meet the public, we, the
commission, do not feel the
person hired is in the best
interest'of the public and
hope the City of Wewahitch-
ka does not have to work with
this child support investiga-
tor in any way because of
problems the City has en-
countered with this indivi-
dual in the past. The Clerk
discussed his hiring of a child
support investigator and the
Chairman requested the
Board write the City of
Wewahitchka informing
them'the Board has nothing
to do with the hiring of the
child support investigator by
the Clerk as the Board has no
authority over whom an
elected official employs. The
Clerk agreed to write this

BY ROY LEE CARTER
County Extension Director
The time .spent preparing
the, planting bed is important
if you are to be successful
with annual flowers. Flower
beds should be spaded or
tilled at least six inches deep
several weeks before plant-
ing. Florida's sandy soils
have very low capacities for
holding nutrients and water.
Incorporation of two to three
inches of organic matter into
planting beds will increase

tion of these soils. Organic
materials such as leaf mold
or peat should be thoroughly

Port St. Joe Ambulance
Director Millergren dis-
cussed problems with collec-
tion of charges for ambu-.
lance runs, mostly for indi-
gent patients, those with
medicare coverage, or out of
town patients. Millergren
.reported the county was
.unable to file on medicare at
present and offered the fol-
lowing suggestions for the
Board's consideration on col-
lection of these unpaid bills:
(1) Bill up to 3 months, on 4th
month send final notice and
take to Small Claims Court to
collect: (2) Hold delinquent
accounts for one year and
sell at a percentage to a
collection agency. No action
taken at this time.
Attorney Rish reported
Property Appraiser Colbert
notified him he would not
pursue the appeal of the
Property Appraisal Adjust-

a letter stating this. The

ported he had talked with Mr.
Stephenson of FICO Farms,
about obtaining a garbage
trailer site on FICO Farms
property for citizens in the
Williamsburg Subdivision

given any information on
where they would like the
trailer located, but maybe
they will have agreed on a
site by the next meeting.
Comm. Owens reported he
had received a request for a
garbage trailer at Douglas
Landing.
C'omm. Birmingham
stated Road Superintendent
Lester had traveled to Monti-

trolled release fertilizers can
be incorporated uniformly
throughout the soil before
planting and applied on the
soil surface of established
plantings.
Annuals purchased in com-
partmentalized plastic flats
usually have pot bound root
systems. If planted intact-,
the root system will be slow
to establish in the surround-
ing soil and plants will suffer
moisture stress. A preferred
method is to loosen and
untangle the root systems
without breaking in the soil
ball. Plants recover rapidly
and establish quickly. Tall
and spindly plants should be
pruned to half their original
size.
Weeds should be controlled 9
either by hand weeding or
mulching. Black plastic mul-
ches should never be used
except when a layer of
organic mulch (woodchips,
pinebark, etc.) is added on
top of the black plastic.
Temperatures of 117-119 de-
grees Farenheit have been
recorded one to three inches
above uncovered black plas-
tic mulches. The addition of
organic matter over the
plastic reduces heat absorp-
tion and masks the artificial
appearance of black plastic.
, Mulching materials should
not come in contact with
plant, stems. The high mois-
ture environment created by
mulch increases the chances
of stem rot which can result
in plant death. Some annuals
such as petunias develop
yellow leaves chlorosiss)
when mulched with cypress
or pine bark mulches.
Annual flowers require
more maintenance than most
other landscape plants. How-
ever, their brilliant colors
add an atmosphere of
warmth and life to a land-
scape which more than justi-
fies the additional main-
tenance.
