Commission Approves Franchises


Votes
The Port St. Joe City Commission
approved three franchise ordinances
to be placed on the May 14 ballot and
approved legal preparations for ask-
ing the Legislature to pass a local'bill
which would give the City manage-
ment of the Port St. Joe Port
Authority.
After nearly two months of
preparation and complying with legal
matters, the Commission formally
approved questions to be placed on the
May Municipal Election ballot to
allow citizens to express themselves
in granting new, 30-year utility
franchises to Florida Power Corpora-'
tion, St. Joseph Telephone and
Telegraph Company and St. Joe
Natural Gas Company.
Both the Florida Power and St.
Joseph Telephone franchises expire
in just a few months. The .St. Joe
Natural'Gas franchise isn't up ft- I
re-newal until 1989, but the company
asked that the franchise be considered
for renewal at this time. The firm has
plans for expansion and improve-
ments. "A new franchise will help us
when we go to the banks for a loan to


to Begin Pr
make the improvements", Stuart
Shoaf, gas company spokesman, said.
. The expense of the election will be
shared equally by the three franchises
involved.
Florida Power Corporation will be
rebating four percent of its service
charges to the City, but the other two
franchises will not be making the
payments into the city treasury. The
new franchise agreements allows the
city to call for a re-negotiation of this
item in the future, if it should be
deemed necessary. Since the rebate to
the City is added to the bill under state
utility regulations, the Commission
did not require any franchise fee
payments from both the phone
company nor the gas company.
PORT AUTHORITY
A few months ago,' George
Tapper, chairman of .the Port St. Joe
Port Authority, asked the Commission
to take over the Port Authority
operation to give the Authority local
autonomy and leadership rather than
have it continue as an arm of the State
of Florida.
Presently, all members of the


ocedure to Take Over Port


Port Authority are named by .the
Governor and has no power of making-
its own decisions or taxing to provide
an operating budget.
Under the new Port Authority:
set-up, the organization would be
under the direction of the City
Commission with its members ap-
pointed locally.. Also, under the new,
management situation, the Authority
would be more flexible in being,
involved in local growth.
Tapper said the. Port Authority
has.a nice nest-egg of money to begin
operation with and hopefully, it can be
a force toward making many irmi-
provements to the city and the county.
The commission approved mak-
ing official requests of Representative
James Harold Thompson and Senator
Dempsey Barron to get Legislative
approval of the change in manage-
ment.
RECREATION
Since it. is spring and more
attention is being given to outdoor
activities, the Commission ag reed: to -
help out in providing guidance for the,"
summer softball league operations'


and to keeping 'the Elementary
Gymnasium open for local young men
to play basketball at night and on
week ends.

State Rules Cause Emergency


for Gulf's
The State of Florida has come
down on Gulf County's ambulance
service for the second time in less
than a year, calling for another big
change in the system, as a result of
another change in state ambulance'
operating rules.

In Highland View


After nearly a week of boiling their drinking water,
residents of Highland View can turn on their water taps and
drink the water straight from the spigot with no fear of the
fecal coliform which caused Health Department officials to
issue the warning to boil last Friday.
High bacteria levels were found in the water system


suspected of being contaminated this past week by the
Health Department, The photo at right, shows the


which served the small community to the west of Port St.
Joe last week and Health Department director, Dr. John J.
Benton issued the warning that residents should boil their
water for at least five minutes before drinking it. Health
Department Environmentalist, Doug Kent, said some 250
people were affected by the warning, which went out Friday


treatment plant for the system. The treatment plant is
suspected as being the source of the high bacteria count.


rater Again

and has continued in effect until this morning. Yesterday,
Port St. Joe water officials sterilized the Highland View
lines and started water from the Port St. Joe system
flowing through the Highland View mains. The community
was to receive treated water from the Port St. Joe system in
conjunction with the new Beaches system, anyhow.
Officials just stepped up the change-over a few days when
the bacteria count in Highland View went above the safe
level.
Kent said the water today may have a heavier than
usual chlorine smell today, but the smell will diminish
within a day or two. "There is no danger from the smell",
Kent said. The smell comes from the method used to
disinfect the new lines which will carry the treated water to
Highland View.
Both Bob Simon, of the Port St. Joe system, and Kent,
surmised that the fecal coliform was coming from one of
two sources. "I feel it is either coming from Highland
View's filter beds, or else someone has their private pump
running into their home where they also have a hook-up to
the Highland View water system. This is in violation of state
law, which is written to prevent just such a situation as
this", Simon said. Kent agreed with Simon's assessment of
the problem.
While it still wasn't determined by yesterday morning,
whether or not the fecal coliform was the strain which was
, dangerous to humans, the warning had been issued to be on
the safe side. One strain of fecal coliform comes from
animal waste and will not harm humans. The other strain
comes from human waste and is very toxic to humans. It
takes sophisticated laboratory procedures to tell the
difference in the two strains.
The Highland View water system has suffered for some
time from water which wasn't pleasing to the taste because
of a lack of maintenance and failure to do periodic
adjustments at the community's water treatment plant.
The primary problem has been a failure to flush the water
filter as needed and a failure to change the filtering agent
as often as required for good operation.
The system has been operated in the past by a five man
district appointed by the,Governor..

Getting More


The Gulf County Commission
took the trouble to go through the
procedure to have a central water
system installed for the Beaches
because the people out there
wanted a central water system.
They wanted the system because
they were tired of the expense of
drilling and maintaining wells.
They were tired of the uncertainty
of the water supply from such a
system. They were tired of the
maintenance involved. They were
tired of the taste of the water. They
were tired of the hardness of the
water and the way it would put a
red film on their plumbing fixtures.
All of these reasons were
involved in initiating and seeing the
system become a reality.
Then, too, there was the desire
to get the system in so a person
would not have to use up so much of
that valuable beach property to
install septic tanks under the state
regulations. Property was getting
just too valuable to purchase a
large piece just to meet the septic
tank area requirements.
A health department. bulletin
for the people of Highland View
late last week brought to the
surface another and possibly most
important reason for installation of
the service. The people of Highland
View were warned to boil their
water before they drank it. 'The
water had an unusually high
bacteria count which made it a

danger for human ingestion.
Highland View has a central
water .system. It's their own
system and was put into place
some 25 years ago. Comparatively
speaking the system is a young
one. Without an elected governing
body to see that the system is kept
up and not enough income to do
necessary repairs, the system has
deteriorated. The fact that High-
land View is being switched over to
the new Beaches supply system,
was probably the main reason the
system had been allowed to deter-
iorate. After all, there was no need
to make repairs and replacements
when the system was changing its
source of supply.
We' can understand how the
system got into the shape it's in,
but it serves as a good example of
just how much these crowded areas
fleed a central system. Bacteria
which makes water dangerous for
humans is a real problem and
nothing but an adequate system
with proper handling and treat-
ment of the water supply will
protect the people.
If there was any objection to
the new system it was the cost of
the service. It would seem that this
threat coming to the surface at this
time would make the people who
are to use the system realize they
are buying protection as well as
water. That makes it worth the
cost.


Presidential candidate Geraldine
Ferraro has been paid a reported
$750,000 to endorse Pepsi Cola.
When we drink a cola, it's usually
Pepsi, .bM.thj;all sftr.tzed a long
time before we ever heard of
Geraldine Ferraro.
It sounds like a good deal to us
for Geraldine. Here she and old
whats-his-name spent millions last
year to make their names a
household word. Geraldine's selec-
tion to do the Pepsi commercials
proves all that money spent to build
recognition wasn't wasted. It got
Mrs. Ferraro a job and is helping
pay off her investment.
Actually, history will probably
remember the new Pepsi pusher
better for her endorsement of Pepsi
Cola than it will as a vice
presidential candidate back in-1984.
After all, how many of you
remember Ed Miller? If he had
endorsed Pepsi, he would probably
still be on the billboards.


Kesley Colbert's Country Column


Wendell Wasn't Much Help at All


You talk about flying. I
was hitting about every third
hill of that plowed field as I
was getting away from 'the
fire. About half way across I
glanced back over my
shoulder 'cause I hadn't seen
a real explosion in years.
That crazy Ted is still trying
to stomp out the fire. He
must'a not a'seen last
week's episode of the "A
Team" they set fire to the


ground around the bad guys'
car blew it to smithereens
in a matter of seconds. I
stopped and was going to
holler back to Ted and then I
got to thinking about that ge-
nuine antique oak library
table sitting in the back of
that Ryder truck couldn't
lose that. Where was that fat
little bear with the shovel
when you needed him?
I hurried back and bet-
ween us we finally got the
fire out but we still


couldn't get the truck
started. Well, let me tell you,
there's not much going on
out beside the highway 4
miles. .north of Blakely,
Georgia on a Sunday after-
noon. Seems like here's a
story that those "It's Ryder
or it's wrong" guys never
tell you about. Ted hikes
about a mile and a half (I'm
not leaving my oak table) to
-the nearest house to call the
toll-free service number
they had posted in the truck


just in case you have trouble.
The lady he got on the phone
wanted to know the number
of the truck. Ted told her he
didn't know the number, but
it was, the one that didn't
have a reverse. She seemed
to know the truck and she
said that someone would be
out to help us just as soon as
she could locate him.
The only person I know in
Blakely, Georgia is Wendell
Whitaker. I had just gotten
the big rug and the couch


KESLEY COLBEPT
laid out behind the truck and
was a'fixing to turn on the
lamp when Ted and Wendell
drive up. Ted had caught a
ride on into Blakely and
hooked up with ole Wendell
who quickly agreed to come
out and give us his aid and
assistance. Ted says that the
Ryder folks are sending so-
meone to help us but shucks,
I figure that we may not
need him 'cause Wendell
surely knows more about
getting a truck cranked than
me and Ted put together...
Wendell hops right in the
truck, tries to start it, has no
luck, comes over to where I
am, sits down and says,
"Well, Kes, hows the fami-
ly?" One thing I love about
Wendell is he don't let too*
much bother him. Well, we
have a simply divine visit
sitting out beside the road. If
we'd only had some teacakes
... We visited for hours and
hours I mean this roadside
party was turning into a
marathon. I was just beginn-
ing to think we would be
there when they harvested
whatever it was they were
going to plant in that plowed
field when the Ryder truck
repairman showed up.
To this day I don't know
what was wrong with the
truck but Dick pulled his
pickup right up to the front of
our truck, jumped out, asked
a few questions and had that
truck running in about 15
minutes. He said some wire
came loose; he was very
polite and even apologized
for the inconvenience.
Wendell asked him where he
was from he said Dothan,
Alabama-I was somewhat
surprised as Dothan is only
31 miles away. I figured he
must of come from Won-
tover,. 'uth Dakota or some
place like that. Wendell also
told him that I write for a
newspaper and I might do a
story on this trip. He said
you spell my name D-I-C I
said "I think I got it Dick."
We thank Dick and
Wendell (I'm not rightly
sure why we thanked
Wendell) and got ready to
leave. Dick says, "If you'll
back up a little, I'll get
behind you and follow a
ways."
You could have heard a pin
drop in that cab I didn't
know what to do; but ole Ted
is a fast thinker, he hops out
and says "We got here first
- if anybody backs up it
ought to be you."
We made it home, finally,
and all in one piece and

SA Visit to the Nuclear Power Plant Doesn't Make You Glow In the Dark


THEIZE'S NOTHING like being
inside a nuclear power plant and
having a warning claxton go off.
This happened to me last Thurs-
day. There was no damage done
though. My hair is already grey. My
arches have already fallen. My eyes
are already bloodshot and I have
always glowed in the dark.
So, what else could a cl it6n
going off inside a nuclear power plant
do to me?
I took a trip last Thursday down to
Crystal River along with a group of
area men to take a tour of the nuclear
installation and have a bubble burst.
The bubble I had burst was the
idea that a nuclear power plant was
something huge, mysterious, pulsat-.
ing with radiation, operated by people
with habitual tics from being exposed
to so much "danger" and so much
"radiation".
I was dissolusioned even further
when I found out that Florida Power
(our friendly electric service man
: here in these parts) didn't even know
you had to put up huge, ominous,
scary looking cooling towers when you
build a nuclear plant. If you have been
by Crystal River, you have seen the


two huge cooling towers at Florida
Power's "installation there. They're
NOT a part of the nuclear plant.
Florida Power has five power plants
sitting in that spot, on a 47 acre plot of


ordinary worker at the plant has
received less radiation in his body
than he gets in a session with for an
ordinary medical X-ray. As a matter
of fact, he more than likely received


forms, being searched,' checked,
questioned and badged. There were
men in uniform all over the place,
inside and outside the operation
buildings.

land, and only one of them is fueled by
nuclear power. The other four are
coal-fired.
The cooling towers are for the
newest two coal fired plants.

ANOTHER SURPRISE I received
at the nuclear plant was to learn that
even some of those who work with it
every day still pronounce nuclear
"NU-CU-LUR" rather than "NU-
CLEE-UR", like it's .spelled. Too, I
was surprised to learn that the


the radiation he has from the X-ray,
rather than from the plant.

THERE IS NO NEED to be overly
alarmed about some crazies getting
inside and radiating us all. I believe
you could get into Fort Knox and its
stash of gold easier than you can get
into Florida Power's nuclear plant.
We had to submit to a federal
clearance nearly a month before
going to Crystal River. After we got
there, it was more testing, filling out


OUR GROUP WAS given the tour
by public relations man John Gendro,
vice president Billy Howell (you old
timers around here remember him);
engineers Wes Johnson, Andy Roppel
and Mike Collins. They were all very
knowledgable about the plant and
nuclear energy.
Nuclear energy isn't all that scary
once it is explained and the workings
and safeguards at the plant explained
and demonstrated. As a matter of


fact, we didn't get into the part where
they kept the nukes. Nobody gets in
there. But we saw the rest of the plant.
Wes Johnson explained to my
group that Florida Power's nuclear
plant produces electric power at a
rate almost equal in cost to that of
water generated power, which is the
cheapest known way to produce
electricity. If it weren't for the
nuclear plant, our electric bill here in
Port St. Joe would be considerably
more than it already is.
The nuclear plant was down for a
20 week renovation when we were
there. The government nuclear regu-
lation committee has mandated that
certain changes be made to the plant
and it is taking some 1,500 men 20
weeks to do the work. Don't worry
about it, we'll pay for it. Billy Howell
said if the work isn't done within the
allowed 20 weeks, it will cost Florida
Power (us) $5 million a day until the
job is complete.
++ + ++
THE ELECTRICITY is carried
away from the generating plants on
huge 500,000-volt high litres. There was
a collection yard between the two


banks of generating plants where the
little killowatts are rounded up and
pushed into that transmission wire. I
figured the kilowatts were either
having trouble all getting into the wire
or else they were protesting. It
sounded like a huge swarm of bees
from across the road from the
transformer yard. I wasn't about to*
get any closer to see for sure whether
it was protest or a rush to get on the
wire causing the sizzling. Along about
that time, I was looking, hard, to see
where the leak was.
Florida Power has some 1,000
people operating those five generating
plants at Crystal River: 500.of them
are operating the nuclear plant. I
asked Johnson why the large number
when the plants were the same except
for the fuel source. He explained, "We
have to keep this many people on the
job to provide all the information, the
testing, the monitoring and the
operation like the government wants
it operated".
I got the idea a mouse couldn't
squeak in that super clean facility
without getting at least a squirt of oil
on his squeaker.

"' '., For the March meeting of
the Port St. Joe Garden Club,
herd Thursday, March 14, the
Garden, Center on Eighth
Street was a veritable fairy-
land of color and beauty-
certainly a .suitable setting
for the program on "Massive
r up; Jenlifer Arrangements" presented by
Mrs. H. W. Griffin from her
storehouse of knowledge.
The focal point for the day
was a six-arrangement dis-
play against a background of
color- green, pink, white,
bluc, brown and yellow. The
arrangements throughout
the hall numbered sixteen, in
e a variety of spring flowers,
with azaleas, chrysare-
rfitiN' sa6tWbrdl^nVlfrttffin
the foreground. During' the
program, different arrange-
ments were placed .against.
the color background to show
the possibility of choice. Mrs.
Griffin had extra materials"
with her and from them-
Screated two extra arrange-
ments, all the time explain-
ing what she was doing and
why.

OTHER BUSINESS -
In other items of business, the
Commission.-
-Heard a request from Mrs. Bill
Gandy asking if the City could launch
a campaign against litter on City


streets, such as has been underway in
Panama City. "Could we begin a
campaign?" she asked. "We have a
lot of litter tossed out by unthinking
people".
-Agreed to place danger warning
signs on each end of the 16th Street
bridge across the drainage ditch
there, until repairs can be made in the
roadway. The road contains a danger-

is scheduled for repair later this year.

expressed in the matter by voicing
opinion in writing to Allen Potter,
District Engineer, at the Chipley
office of DOT. He cautioned that the
input must be received by March 24 to
receive full consideration.
Robert Nedley' asked if the
primary purpose of the bridge was for
hurricane evacuation.


If this were so, he wondered what
the state would do about the Cypress
Creek bridge a few miles north. "This
area is also subject to flooding and
might cut off traffic during a
hurricane", he pointed out.
The DOT representatives ans-
swered that the primary purpose of
the bridge was to. facilitate both boat
and highway traffic, not to rule out the

Your Ornamentals Could Use



A Bite to Eat After Winter Nap


BY ROY LEE CARTER
County Extension Director
Lawn and garden activities
intensify with the arrival of
spring. And one of the
essential jobs is the proper
application of fertilizer- the
right kinds and amounts of
fertilizer of the various types
of plants in your landscape.
Individual requirements do
vary. My information for this.
article was provided by
Extension Horticulturist Dr.
Robert J. Black, with IFAS of
the University of Florida.
The only way you can
fertilize plants properly is to
know about the different
kinds of fertilizers that are
available, and which ones
are needed by your particu-
lar ornamental plants. Most
of our landscapes contain an
assortment of trees, palms,
shrubs, and hedges, which.
may require different fertili-
zers.
The first landscape plants
we'll talk about are shrubs.
Shrubs should be given an
all-purpose garden fertilizer,
such as an 8-8-8 or 10-10-10.
Apply the 'fertilizer at the
rate of one-and-one-half to
three lbs. per 100 sq. ft. for
hedges. The fertilizer should
be spread evenly along each
side of the plants for other'
shrubs, simply broadcast it
over the entire area.
The next group of plants
includes landscape trees and
palms. To calculate the cor-
rect amount of fertilizer to
use, you need to know the
trunk diameter or the trees or
palm you're fertilizing. Keep
in mind that trees' diameters
are measured four feet up
from the soil surface. For
trees with-trunk diameters of
six inches'or less, apply three
lbs. of 8-8-8 fertilizer for
every inch of trunk diameter.
For trees with' a diameter
larger than six inches, use'
five lbs. of 8-8-8 fertilizer for
each inch of diameter. Very
small trees can be fertilized


SB386. After receiving certi-.
fication, the Department will
proceed with constructing a
new bridge at Overstreet and
resurfacing SR386, and upon
completion contact the
County to schedule accep-
tance of jurisdictional re-
sponsibility. Comm. Branch
moved the Board adopt a
resolution approving this re-
quest and forward a copy to
the Department of Transpor-
tation. Comm. Birmingham
seconded the motion for
discussion. Comm. Birming-
ham then withdrew his sec-
ond. Comm. Owens seconded
the motion and it passed
unanimously with Comm.
Birmingham voting yes re-
luctantly.
Upon motion by Comm.
Owens, second by Comm.
Branch, and unanimous vote,
the Board' instructed the
Road Superintedent to re-
stripe the Industrial Road,
using a good grade of non-
fading paint.
Comm. Branch discussed-
with the attorney the Board's
responsibility concerning
missing.. inventory in the
Property Appraiser and Civil
Defense Offices and asked
the Chairman to take what-
ever action necessary. Upon
the Sheriff's request that he
be allowed some time to
search for these items, the
Chairman.agreed.
Comm. Branch moved the
Board advertise for two
trailers, new or used, (one
trailer without wet-kit), and
one tractor truck, with im-
mediate delivery for use at
the Landfill Transfer Station.
Comm. Birmingham second-
ed the motion. The Board
agreed 'for Mosquito Control
Director Graves to prepare
specifications. Upon vote; the
motion passed unanimously.
Mosquito Control Director
Graves inquired if moir than
the 60 square feet set aside
for garbage trailers outside
the fence surrounding the
landfill transfer station
would be needed before he
proceeded with installation
of the fence. After discussion,
Comm. Branch stated there
would be no more space
available other than the 60
square feet.
Comm. Birmingham re-
ported on the progress of
acquisition of a garbage
trailer site in Williamsburg
Subdivision.
Comm. Owens stated a
detour road would be needed
for traffic while the county is
rebuilding the Pleasant Rest
Cemetery Bridge. Comm.
Birmingham and Sheriff


Harrison reported the Sand-
ridge Road could be used as a
detour road.
The Chairman and the
Attorney discussed plans for
a Third Class Landfill site.
There being no further
business, the meeting ad-
journed.


CARTER
the same as -shrubs.
Palm trees can be ferti-
lized with either an 8-8-8 or a
10-10-10 mixture. Apply the
fertilizer at the rate of one lb.
for each inch of trunk diame-
ter. If your palm is so small
that it doesn't have a woody
trunk yet, apply from two to
eight ounces of fertilizer. The
mixture can be broadcast
under the palm's canopy.
In addition to the fertilizers
I've mentioned, which pro-
vide the major plant nu-
trients, all landscape plants


can benefit from an applica-
tion of a minor element
mixture. Many of the all-pur-
pose fertilizer already con-
tain these minor elements. If
not. you'll need to add them.
You can do this by using an
all-purpose minor element
mix, such as "perk",. or you
can add the individual ele-
ments that are needed. These
usually include magnesium
sulfate. sulfur and iron sul-
fate. The all-purpose mixes


are more convenient for
adding minor elements. Al-
ways follow the manufac-
turer's recommended rates
of application.
Since iron deficiency is a
very common problem in
Florida, you may want to
include a chelated (key-late-
ed) iron in your spring
fertilizer program. Mix one
ounce of 12 percent chelated
iron in 25 gallons of water.
This will clear up an iron

::'~The John C. Gainous
V.F.W. Post 10069 held its
regular monthly supper Fri-
day, March 8 at the Post
Home on 5th Avenue in
Highland View.
The Post had as its guest
for the evening three repre-
sentatives of the American
Cancer Society: Mrs. Jackie
Christo from Panama City,
Al Ray, President of the Port
St. Joe Chapter, and Dr.
Shirley Simpson,


After everyone enjoyed a
covered dish supper served
by the Ladies Auxiliary, Mrs.
Christo presented a slide
program on colorectal can-
cer. Dr. Simpson followed
this program with a short
talk on how to be tested for
the colorectal cancer, or how
you can do the test yourself
at home. Then Mr. Ray gave
a short talk about the activi-
ties of the American Cancer
Society.


deficiency in 100 sq. ft. of
your landscape.
It's quite common in Flori-
da for the soil pH to be too
high, causing the minor
elements to be tied up in
forms that are unavailable to
plants. Sulfur or iron sulfate
can. be used to lower the pH of
alkaline soils. For recom-
mendations on the use of
such materials, check with
your garden center or County
