Approves Permit



To Re-Build Boat Launching Facilities


After nearly a year of running up
against dead ends with state agencies,
it appears as if the City of Port St. Joe
may have finally craked the shell of.
resistance to. issuing a permit for
rebuilding the boardwalks at the Fifth
Street boat launching site,
Resistance from state agencies
for issuing.the permits came when the
City made application to rebuild the
Walks as ihey presently are, except to
change the construction material to
sheet steel piling in the water and
S concrete walkways, in order to reduce
maintenance and make the structure
safer for those using it.

Larry Taylor had said objections to
the permit were based on the launch
site being in state Class II waters. The
Commission has attempted to show
this is not the case, but to no avail
until Thursday afternoon of last week.
Last thursday Taylor, who is the
chief contact for DER was in Port St.
Joe along with Gulf County's repre-
sentative in the Legislature, James
Harold Thompson, and took a first-
hand, look at the proposed project.
After inspecting the site, Taylor
made' several suggestions, including
extending the walkway eastward to
the approach to the launch ramp,
providing places for boats to tie up
and doing, some maintenance dredg-
ing to the launch site. "With these
improvements and because this is the
only public launch site on St. Joseph
Bay, I will endorse the permit",
Taylor said. The DER official pointed


out, "I can't issue the permit, I can
only recommend it be issued. I will
make that recommendation."
This wasn't Taylor's first visit to
the launch site, but it was his first
visit, meeting with the City Commis-
sioners at the site.
Department of Natural Resources
representatives had already approved
the replacement of the walkways and
had urged DER to give their approval
in the past, but to no avail. The project
has also received assurances of a
permit from the Corps of Engineers.
While he -was visiting with the
Commission Thursday, Taylor also
explained just how much mainten-
ance Work the City could perform on
the structure without having to secure
a state permit.
The City is prepared to begin
improvement work immediately after
the permits are received.


The City Commission voted
;Tuesday night to try and
secure a Community Devel-,

Merger Approved

(Port St. 'Joe) Members of Telan Federal Credit Union
have voted overwhelmingly to merge with Tyndall Federal
Credit Union of Panama City.
The National Credit Union Administration approved the
merger request March 12, clearing the way for a vote of
Telan's membership. The vote took place at Telan's Annual
-Membership Meeting March 25.
Telan served the financial needs of employees of St.
Joseph Telephone and Telegraph Company and the Apalach-
icola Northern Railroad. Tyndall Federal's field of member-
ship includes governmental workers in Bay, Franklin, Gulf,
Holmes,;Jackson and Washington counties.
"Increased competition made it difficult for Telan to pro-
vide many of the services offered by other financial institu-
tions," says Telan President Jean McMillian. "A merger
with Tyndall Federal gives our members access to' a wide
variety of excellent financial services."
Tyndall Federal President H. C. Klein says Telan's of-
fices in Port St. Joe will remain open. "We already serve
members in this area of the Panhandle and a Tyndall
Federal branch office in Port St. Joe will greatly improve our
ability to respond to their needs, as well as the financial needs
of former Telan members," he says.
Tynidall Federal officials plan to complete the merger by
May 1'.

Highland View Will Get Its New High Rise Bridge


Pappas Pledges New Span No Later Than 1988
"tTTihnl, nATI' dVi will get iti new mr..^ ,r O '...-. id: t -*h A, ,-i,,n cim 'i T he Authnorit,


-viw a w ge &- LMW
bridge, even if there is a shortfall of.
Department of Transportation money,
in the next few years" DOT Secretary
Paul Pappas assured a group of Gulf
County government and'civic leaders
- last Thursday. Speaking at a dinner
meeting held at the St. Joseph Bay
Country Club, Pappas, who will retire
from his position within the next few
months, said Gulf County would be
receiving about-$35 million worth of,
expenditures from the department
over the next five. years.
Pappas said the new bridge would
be one of three new high rise spans to
be built here in Gulf County by 1989,
including one at Overstreet and one at
White City, to replace old structures
now serving these highway crossings
of the Intracoastal Waterway.
OVERSTREET BRIDGE FIRST
The first bridge construction
project is' scheduled to begin in
Overstreet during the DOT budget
year which begins in July of 1986.
"The following year we will begin the
White City bridge and the following
year the Highland View 'bridge",
Pappas said. He pointed out the
Highland View bridge would 'be
moved up a year in the scheduling if..
some other bridge project in the state
is not ready to go when it is scheduled.


The DOT Secretary saia ne
Overstreet bridge, which replaces
probably the state's only remaining
floating bridge, would cost some $8
million; the White City high rise, $8.
million and te Highland View span $10
million.
The Highland View bridge cost is
.higher than the other two because it
will be higher in the air and span a
wider width than the other two.
The meeting, arranged by George
Tapper. chairman of the Port St. Joe
Port Authority, was for the purpose of
presenting the DOT with $2 million to
pay for that extra 10 feet in height and
the extra length. DOT standard high
rise bridges call for elevations of 65
feet. The bridge at Highland View will
be 75 feet in the air. This is to
accommodate sea going barges and
enhance the proposed port facility and
industrial park on the banks of the
Gulf County canal. Only two or three
other places on the Gulf Coast has
such facilities. '
$2 MILLION CONTRACT
As -a' climax to the meeting,
Pappas signed an agreement with the
Port Authority to get the bridge built
to the Port Authorities' specification
and the Port Authority chairman,
Tapper, handed' over $2 million in
government securities to pay for the


extra 1 1mens1ons. y A lit- L ",
earned the $2 million from interest
earned on money which had been
placed on deposit for port develop-
.ment. Tapper handed Pappas a check
for, $100,000 and U.S. Treasury bonds
to cover the balance of the $2 million.
Pappas used the contribution and
the presence of House Speaker, James
Harold Thompson, who was sitting at
his side at the head table, to explain
the probable financial shortfall the
pOT is projected to experience within.
the next four or five years. He pointed
out the shortfall, whether or not it
materializes, will not affect the Gulf .
County projects. The local expendi-
tures, including resurfacing Highway.
71 from the four-lane in Port St. Joe,
north, would be built, regardless of
the future financial situation. The
Highland View span will be financed
with 80 percent funding, 15 percent
state money and the remainder, local
funds.
Statewide, Pappas said a new,
bridge for Franklin County at Apala-
chicola is scheduled to begin construc-
tion this summer. Over the state, he
said the Interstate program is on
schedule. "We have the money to do
what we have to do at the present
time, but the future isn't very
promising", Pappas said.

THE STAR


THURSDAY, APRIL 4, 1985


There has been more furor
over the price of claw hammers to
the Pentegon lately, than there has
been concerning the. Russians
shooting one of our military
officers in cold' blood.
There have been world wars
started over the killing of one man
on -more than one occasion. Given
that historical fact and considering
that the man shot was an Army
officer, how close are we to war
over the incident? If the publicity
the event is getting is any indica-
tion, we would have to believe the
Second Coming is more of a surety
this year than is starting a war
over the shooting of our Major.
What do you do about such
outrages? According to what we
have read, this isn't the first time
the Russians have taken extreme
measures in this part of the world,
where both sides are spying on the
other.
Do we shoot one of their
officers performing similar mis-
sions against the Americans? If we
were to do so, the terrorists would
Srise up in arms all over the world in
protest to the "Yankee Giant"
Which is flexing its muscles and
"shooting defenseless men".
-: It could be the terrorists know
: they couldn't' get away with
demonstrating against the Rus-


sians like they do against the
Americans.
In the meantime, we have a
super power nation which is daring
us to knock the chip off its shoulder.
The ironic part of the whole
incident is that Russia doesn't have,
to resort to such dangerous acts to
prevent our jumping on them.
It is our information the Major
was taking pictures of a sensitive
Russian area, just as they havf
done of ours. If an American
soldier was to shoot a Russian for'
taking pictures of ... anything .
we would all rise up in protest
against the American for endan-
gering our status quo.
SThe point is, the Russians
didn't need to shoot the American
Major. It would have been a simple
matter to have confiscated his
camera, remove and expose the
film and send the American on his
way. The same end result would,
have followed except one wouldn't
risk the danger of starting a war
just to make an example.
The Russians really can't
justify their latest barbaric thrust.
But, if we won't punish them for
shooting down an airliner with
nearly 275 people on board, who's
to worry about shooting an Army
Major?

Who's to Worry



About the Major?


don't rightly remember when
it started to shrink. I wish I
could get my hands on the
person that gave Cathy the
copy of "Southern Living".
You know the one I'm talking
about- it had those pictures
of the sunken bathtub, the
spiral staircase, the great
room with the cathedral
ceiling, and the extra large
kitchen with the fire place
and all those old cooking
utensils hanging on the wall.
Listen, the only sunken,
bathtub I've ever seen was
over at my Aunt Mary's


house and that was years
ago. They had just put in "all
the modern conveniences" in
that old house of theirs. My
Uncle Tylus was a big man
and when he got into that
heavy bathtub filled to the
top with water, it was more
than that old floor could
stand- so bathtub, .Uncle
Tylus and all fell right
through the floor to the
ground. I remember at the
time that Uncle Tylus said
the ride was all right- it was
that sudden stop that liken' to
have killed him. Well, folks
came from miles around to


see Aunt Mary's sunken tub.
I think there was a guy from
"Southern Living" taking
pictures...
About the same time that
Cathy began to put in for
adding on to the house she
learned that her family was
selling a house back home
and that Cathy was to receive
her share from the' sale. So.
she "reasoned" with me that
we had the money and she
had the idea and she received
the copy of "Southern Liv-
ing" all at about the same
time so this "addition" was
just "meant to be". You ever

County Should Take Over


Highland View System


At- the County. Commission
meeting last Tuesday, there were
some residents. from Highland
View who were concerned over howv
much the people in that community
would have to pay for water,: now
that it's coming from the Port St.
SJoe treatment plant. If 'we lived in
Highland View, we would wonder
about the cost of the water, also.
It's not good business to just give
anyone a blank check with your
signature attached, and that's what
has happened to .the people of
'Highland View.
We don't fault their wanting to
know. However, we can assure the
people of Highland View their new.
water bill will be more than the old
ones were.
The old water rate in Highland
View is one of the reasons the
community has had its water
system go sour. There was not
enough income ,to keep the system
in order and producing acceptable


-water supplies. Treating water
properly, like anything else these
days,, costs money. If Highland
View wanitsgood, safe water which
meets all acceptable standards of
the Department of Health; it'll cost
money. There's no way around it.
The treated water is probably
cheap at the price, even though it
will seem high in comparison to
past bills from the Highland View
system. If the current rate had
been charged for the Highland
View produced water, the system
would probably still be in opera-
tion.
We'll go along with the High-
land View people, however, in
asking that the County take over
the system and operate it on a solid
basis. No other. district in the
county has water (or sewer) which
is subsidized by the county or any
other political stibdivision. High-
land View shouldn't expect any
such favors either, and we're sure
they don't.


Well boys, no attempt at
humor today- I've got prob-
lems. Serious problems! My
first wife has decided that
she wants to build on to our
house. I distinctly remember
her telling me just a few
years ago when we (that's
me, Cathy and the loan
company) purchased this
house it was just the place
that she wanted. And I'm not
dead positive sure of this
next statement, but I believe
I remember her saying at the
time that it was all the'house
we'd ever need.
Seems like now it's not "all
the house we'll ever need". I


"Please Don't Clip the Roses


" Will be the New Theme Around Our Home


I HAVE OFTEN WONDERED
where Mark Twain got some' of his
ideas incorporated in his books about
the adventures of Tom Sawyer and
Huckleberry Finn. The adventures
were fun to read about, 'ingenious for
the instigators and showed a lively
imagination for the author.
I thought all this until last week.
Last week, I found myself in an
almost identical situation as some of
those Tom Sawyer found himself in. I
didn't work at it. I didn't sit down and
meticulously figure the situation out,
but it worked out to my future
advantage anyhow.

LAST THURSDAY, as is my habit
when I can do it, I went home early
with the intent of doing the annual
trim job on the roses in our yard.
Since last year, Frenchie has accumu-
lated some 20 or 25 extra bushes from
this person and that one and had stuck
them in the ground, Every time 'I
clear the grass and weeds out of a spot
to plant something to eat, she
pre-empts it when the harvest is over,


to put her flowers in. Thus, I get the
job of clearing out the new ground and
she just slips in her flowers when I'm
not looking.
This particular Thursday, I slip-


to be cut off. d
With that knowledge firmly en-
trenched in my brain cells, you'd
think it would be enough to guide me
on my appointed task. How much

ped away from the office about 4:30
and headed straight for the trimmers
and the rose bushes.
I admit that what I know about
rose cultivation could be engraved on
the head of a pin, but I know they are
supposed to be pruned, and Frenchie
has told me to look for a.bud on the
stem to be trimmed and cut just above
the bud. I know all the dead wood has

trouble can a fellow get into by cutting
off dead wood and cutting above the
bud?
A lot!
I didn't get even the first little bit
of praise for my willingness to help,
Even though those roses were grow-
ing in my last year's tomato bed, here
I was offering my services to tend
them.


cutting away to beat the band. The job
was even getting to be enjoyable.
Dead wood was flying right and left
and here and there, where a rose bush
looked to me as if it was getting out of
shape and needed a little trimming, I
was looking for the bud.
ABOUT THE TIME I made it to
the last bush back in the corner of the


yard, Frenchie got home.
You would have thought I had
robbed a bank or something. I
haven't heard her wail like that since
the last time I slipped around and ate
a candy bar when I was supposed to be
cutting down on my eating.
"Why did you cut off these
limbs?" she cried. "Didn't you know
better? You have. RUINED these
bushes."
Well, here I thought I was
helping out.
Come to find out some of those
"out of shape" bushes with the long
spindly limbs were running roses. I
had cut off the runners of two or three
roses.
It didn't seem like the end of the
world to me, but I guess it was.
On top of all that, it seems I had
cut off some limbs with buds on the
end and that was a mortal sin. "Why
didn't you wait until after they had
bloomed?" was the cry. "Why did you
cut off my running roses?" .. "Just
look at these good parts you cut off!"
++++ +


EVEN WHEN RACHEL chases a
car, she doesn't get a dressing down
like I got. Of course, Rachel just takes
a chance of getting killed. She didn't
mess up one of Frenchie's roses..
I couldn't figure out what the big
fuss was about. She attracts roses
(and other bushes) from almost
anybody in town who wants to get rid
of one. I swear she goes around with a
sign hung around her neck, "I take old
, flowers or bushes".
I have yet to see whether or not
the roses will fail to bloom this year,
as she claimed while dressing me
down. I have committed a major
crime.
+++++
ONE THING FOR certain; I
would be willing to make a bet-and
I'm not a betting man-that next year
I not only will not be asked to trim the
rose bushes, I won't be allowed in the
yard with a pair of clippers. I will
probably be asked NOT to trim them.
And, believe it or not; I didn't do it
on purpose.

get any "reasoning" like
that?
I tried to "reason" a little
myself. First of all I explain-
ed to her that we didn't
actually have the money in
hand and how could we be
sure we'd ever see it. She
scoffed. I told her it would be
nice just once in our lives to
have some money in the
bank. She said that we
wouldn't miss what we'd
never had. I told her that we
-couldn't possibly build every-
thing that she'd seen in that
"Southern Living". She said
that she was willing to
compromise- she would
give up the rock garden.
I told you that we are
talking serious problems
here. I finally asked her just
what exactly did she want to
add. She said that she would
like to add a bathroom and
enlarge the kitchen and
that's all. Well, at least I
thought she was trying to be
reasonable. I asked her how
big a room she thought we
were talking about. She said
"Oh, not too big- maybe
about.20 feet by 40 feet."
I liken' to have swallowed
my chew. "20 ft. x 40 ft."
Good gravy- I grew up in a
house that wasn't that big-
and there were five of us. But
I'm trying to be nice about all
of this and so I tried to
remain calm. I look over at
Cathy and quietly say
"Which side of the tub is the
diving board going on?" I
told her Marlen Perkins
could film Wild Kingdom
inside a space that big. "20 ft.
x 40 .ft."- Goodness graci-
ous. I told Cathy her sister
was big and I knew they were
coming soon for a visit but
she's not that big. Zimba the
Elephant is not that big.
I finally decided that we'd
discuss the whole thing
later- much later- like 1997
or so. Well, Cathy just smiled
as she looked over some kind
of book with window curtains
in it. She did look up long
enough to ask what color of
bricks I'd like for the house.
Bricks- we hadn't said
anything about bricking the
house. She said that she gave
up the rock garden so I'd
have to give up something. I
said, "You can't give up
something you never had."
You know when Cathy used
that line in connection with
the money and the bank it
made sense, but when I used
it I didn't even know what I
was a'talking about.
I tell you this discussion is
not over yet, but, Joe, while
we're talking- would you
hand me that hammer and
line level, please...
Respectfully,
Kes

Highland View System


Bills Increase In April


Highland View Water Dis-
trict member. Martin Adki-
son. said this week the new
water bills .being sent out to
customers on the system will
-see a dramatic increase in


their bills for the month of
April. Adkison said many of
the bills were nearly double,
with a minimum bill being
$9.00 as compared to $5,00
under the old rates.


Phyllis Bixler-


Teacher of Year


Walter Wilder, left, Superintendent of Schools, presents Mrs. Norman Bixler, with a plaque

-Star photo


In announcing Phyllis Bix-
ler's selection as Gulf County
Teacher of the Year, Super-
intendent B. Walter Wilder
says "The Teacher of the
Year Program .is designed to
honor a teacher who is
representative of all good
teachers. The selection of
Phyllis Bixler meets this
goal."
Mrs. Bixler is a graduate.of.
Gulf Coast Community Col-
lege, the University of West
Florida where she earned a
Bachelors degree in 1974 and
a Masters degree in 1979.
During her nine years of
teaching -in Gulf.. County,
Phyllis has twice received
the Teacher of the Year
honor. The first time was in
1980. She is married to
Norman Bixler, an electronic


Technician with RCA,
One of five nominees from
Gulf County Schools, Mrs.
Bixler was voted Teacher of
the Year by a district-wide'
screening committee com-
posed of personnel from each
school. Other nominees in-
cluded: Billy Barlow, Port
St. Joe Elementary School;
Betty Bidwell, Wewahitchka
High School; Betty Husband,
Wewahitchka Elementary
School; Carl White, Port St.
Joe High School.
In making the presentation
to Mrs. Bixler, Superinten-
dent Wilder stated that all
the nominees were excellent
teachers and most worthy of
the recognition bestowed up-
on them by their individual
faculties. For Mrs. Bixler to
be recognized by her contem-
poraries twice in the span of
five years is truly remark-
.able, and is indicative of the
type work she does daily in
the classroom at Highland
View Elementary School.


Highland View was-placed
on the Beaches supply sys-
tem three weeks ago when
the State Health Department
ruled the district's former
water supply was unfit to
drink. The system was then
shifted over to a pipeline
carrying treated water from
Port St. Joe's treatment
plant to the new beaches
system.
Adkison\ said the billings
for April will be $9.00 for a
minimum of 2,000 gallons and
$2.00 per 1,000 gallons for all
over the minimum.
Adkison said, "We still
have ah old bond debt of
$115,000 to pay off and this
must be done from water
revenues."
Adkison pointed out. the
new rate is only an estimate.
"There may be some other
changes made in our charges
once the County Commission
gives us a definite figure of
costs at a public hearing with
the people of Highland View
next week". At the meeting,
the County is to have figures
from a rates expert about
how much money Highland
View residents will have to
pay to meet the expenses of
their new system and still
pay off the old one.
Highland View was hooked
to the new system under
orders from the state's'De-
partment of Environmental
Regulation and the Farmers'
H- ome Administration.

Library Has Handbook for Latch


Key Children and Their Parents


More than six million child-
ren come. home from school
to an empty house each day
because their parents must


work. The work force con-
tained 17 million women with
children in 1980, and this
figure has continued to climb"


Penny Ipford and John Ford



Mr. and Mrs. E.' W. Lipfordof Marianna, and Mr. and
rs. Sam A. Ford, Sr. of Port St. Joe, are proud to announce
the engagement and forthcoming marriage of their children,
enny R. LUpford and John Fe Ford. The wedding will be
August 10, at Damascus Freewill Baptist Church, Marianna,
at 7:00p.m.
All friends and relatives of the couple are invited to at-
tend.


since then, according to
Lynette and Thomas Long in
their book "The Handbook
for Latchkey Children and
Their Parents"..
This book is one of many in
the Parent-Teacher Collec-
tion at the public library'that
will be helpful to working
parents or single parent
families, states Children's
Librarian Sarah Howell of
the Northwest Regional Li-
brary System:.
A companion book, "On My
Own" by Lynette Long,
Ph.D., is subtitled, "The
Kids' Self Care* Book" and
contains more than 125 acti-
vities to prepare children to
take care of-themselves when
parents aren't home before
and after school.
The authors state that
parents choose self care for
their children for many
varied reasons. Child care
may be unaffordable or
unsuitable, or on the other
hand they may be able to
afford child care, but have
been convinced by their
children that they are too old
for a babysitter. These child-
ren spend their afternoons
alone even though, ideally,
their parents would prefer to
have them. supervised.
Latchkey children can gain
. some positive benefits from
their self care situation, the
authors point out. They may
become more self-reliant and
independent and they may
also be more helpful in doing
household chores. But there
are negative aspects also,
and parents need to discuss
the different problems that
are apt to come up.
What if you get home from
school and the front door is
slightly open? Do you enter?
What if a thunderstorm
causes the electricity to go
off? Do you light candles?
What if you're walking


home in the \ram and a
strange woman asks you if
you want to ride in her car?
Questions such as these are
discussed in the Kids' Self
Care Book "On My Own".
The author suggests that "if
you are considering whether
or not to leave your child
alone- either for an evening
while you go to the movies or
every day while you are at
work- this book will help
both you and your child
prepare for this new situa-
tion".
Some areas covered by the
handbook include the un-
spoken fears of latchkey
children, teaching your child
to be self-sufficient, when not
to leave a child alone,
preparing your child for any
emergency, and the prob-
lems of children left alone
and children left with an
older brother or sister.
Find out why parents keep
this child care arrangement
"secret" and learn the spe-
cial stresses on latchkey
children and how to relieve
them. These books are in the
Children's Department of the
Bay County Public Library.
You .can order them by
calling the Library Informer
Hotline toll free: 1-800-342-
0512 or in Gulf County call the
local Informer line: 229-8879.
The books can be sent to any
resident in the System.

Guidelines for Sr.


Citizens' Taxes


Recent changes,in taxable
'income, particularly in the
taxation of Social Security
benefits, have caused some
confusion for many senior
citizens in terms of whether
or not they owe taxes for
1984.
The Area Agency on Aging
for North Florida, Inc. offers
the following suggestions for
those persons over age 65,
who are unsure of, their
status:
First, remember that you
must' file a tax return if your.
income as a single person
was over $4,300; or, as a
couple, was more than
$7.400:


Secondly,, Social Security
benefits are" generally -ony
taxable if the amount re-
maining when one-half of
your Social Security income
for 1984, subtracted from
your total income for that
year, exceeds $25,000 for" a
single person; or, $32,000 for
a couple;
Finally, to be sure of your
status, make use of a free
IRS service, called Volunteer
Income Tax Assistance
which is available each'.
Thursday afternoon from 1
P.M. to 5 P.M. at the Senior,
Center in Port St. Joe. This is
located at the head of Avenue
D 'at Peters Street.

New Monitors

At Gulf Pines


Gulf Pines Hospital has ac-
quired the latest state of the
art heart monitoring equip-
ment, according to Joe
Allen, hospital administra-
tor. The new equipment has
the capabilities to monitor
four patients at one time at
the central receiving unit,
located in the nurses' sta-
tion. Two of the units are
equipped to monitor the
hearts of patients who are
confined to the bed; but two
are mobile monitors, allow-
ing the patients to walk
anywhere within the con-
fines of the hospital, and still
be monitored continuously.
In the photo at right,
Peggy Stevens, R.N., is


monitoring her own heart-
beat at the central receiving
unit located in the nurses'
station, demonstrating the
mobility of the monitoring
equipment.

A PRESCRIPTION IS A W
MEDICAL TREATMENT IN
PRODUCT FORM W
Not too long ago, medicines with very few g
exceptions couldn't cure anything-they merely
relieved symptoms. But, today many drugs ac-
tually kill disease organisms and can control or 3
change the way your body operates. Your doctor
knows what drug treatment is best for you. He is
not just treating symptoms, he is treating the
disease that caused them.
y*& Home remedies will sometimes offer tem- *
porary relief of symptoms. But, most likely they
could be masking a more serious problem. The key -
to most all medical treatment is to find the cause of
the illness and to start treating it early.

time consuming job I ever
got myself into".

ed by the Cabinet in most
instances. "They have large-
ly gone along with our
recommendations for sea-
food conservation",Raffield
said. Only the Cabinet has
veto power over the Commis-
sion's recommendations.
The Commission has been


responsible for such marine
rulings as placing a limit on
the amount of king mackerel
which can be caught by both
sportsmen and commercial
fishermen.

They have recommended a.
limit in size for speckled
trout of 14 inches with a bag
limit of "10 or 12"; an 18"


size limit on red fish, wth
a limit of five.
Locally, the Commission
has prohibited scallop taking
from the Bay from April 1 to
July 1, with a limit of five'
gallons in the shell or a half
gallon of meat. Commercial
fishermen can scallop after
August 30, with the season
closed to them during Labor

Day week end.
Raffield said as the Com-
mission holds hearings
throughout the state they are
gaining support. "The people
are seeing we are interested
solely in the .protection of our
seafood resource and they
have gone along with us. In
the past what seafood protec-
tion we have had has been
from a strictly political view-
point", the speaker said.
Raffield said the state was
growing and this was placing
more pressure on the seafood
supply. "We have more
people in Florida and many
of them came here to get in
some fishing", he pointed


out.
Raffield said that due to
the increased pressure from
sport and commercial anglers
and from taking seafood
producing areas' out of the
chain by developers, the
Commission has a tough
responsibility ahead of it to
properly utilize the marine
harvest.
One of the most controver-
sial items to face the

Commission will be the
advocating of a salt water
sports fishing license,
"which will be facing us ror a
decision very soon", the
speaker said. -

NEW SERVICES

There are three new services now available to you through the Clerk of
Circuit Court. I would like to beiefly describe each of them and I hope
anyone seeking help in these areas will feel free to come into our office
and take advantage of these services.


SIMPLIFIED DISSOLUTION
OF MARRIAGE
On June. 1, 1985 the Florida Legislature
passed-a law making couples eligible for a
more simple, inexpensive dissolution of mar-
riage in limited circumstances. A husband
and wife can.get a divorce through the Sim-
plified Dissolution of Marriage Procedure if
all of the following statements are true about
both parties. If one of these statements is
not true, you cannot use this procedure.
1. There are no minor or dependent
children.
2. There are no adopted minor or dependent
children.
3. The wife is not pregnant.
4. One of the parties has lived in Florida for
the past 6 months.
5. Provisions for the division of property
and payment of obligations have been
-made and are satisfied with them.
6. Both parties have signed the Petition, and
paid all required fees to the clerk of cir-'
cuit court.
7. Both parties want to end the marriage
because of serious permanent differ-
,ences.
.8. Both parties have agreed to use this pro-
cedure rather than a regular dissolution.
9. Neither husband nor wife can receive
alimony.
10. They agree that they give up certain legal
rights that they would have in a regular
dissolution procedure.
There are seven easy steps listed below
that you must follow to obtain a Simplified
Dissolution of Marriage.
1. Both husband andwife must go to the of-
fice of the clerk of circuit court.
2. Both husband and wife must read and
sign the Petition before the Clerk.
3. A Certificate of Corroborating Witness
must be signed, before the Clerk or a
Notary Public.
4. It is recommended but not required to file
a financial affidavit.
5. It is recommended but not required to file
.a Property Settlement Agreement.
6. You must pay the filing fee of $33.50 and
recording fee of $3.00.
7. Both husband and wife must appear
before the Judge for the final hearing.
If you wish to obtain a divorce
through this procedure it is now
available through the Clerk of Circuit
Court, Gulf County.


DOMESTIC VIOLENCE
Any person who is a victim of domestic
violence (spouse abuse) shall have the right
to file with the Clerk of Circuit Court a Peti-
tion for Injunction for Protection. In the Peti-
tion the Petitioner may seek any or all of the
following' injunctions:
1. An injunction restraining any party from
committing acts of domestic violence.
2. An injunction excluding the respondent
from the home.
3. An injunction awarding temporary
custody and support of the minor
children.
4. An injunction directing the respondent to
participate in assessment and treatment.
5. An injunction providing any terms the
court deems necessary.
There is a filing fee of $33.50 but
if you are unable to pay this fee it can
be waived by the Court. If you are a
victim of spouse abuse and fear for
the safety of your children and/or
yourself, help is now available to you
through the Office of the Clerk of Cir-
cuit Court.

CHILD SUPPORT
ENFORCEMENT
Effective January 1, 1985, the legislature
passed a law making the office of the Clerk
of Circuit Court the central depository for en-
forcing collection of child support. The
Clerk's office is now able to offer such ser-
vices as:
1. Help anyone collect support from their
spouse who in the past has not been able
to.
2. Enforcing support payments to be made
through the central depository (clerk's of-

* In Franklin County Courthouse, April 10



Hearing Scheduled On River


A public meeting has been
scheduled for April 10 in
Apalachicola at 7:30 P.M.
(E.S.T,) at the Franklin
County Courthouse, to re-
ceive public comments on
proposed regulations for the
Apalachicola Wildlife and
Environmental Area.,
Commonly referred to as
the Lower Apalachicola En-


vironmentally Endangered
Lands (EEL) Tract, the
regulations center around
the public's use of 28,000
acres of hardwood bottom-
land which stretches 19 miles
along the Apalachicola River
in Gulf and Franklin Coun-
ties.
Neal Eichholz, a biologist
with the .Game and Fresh


New Fish, Game

Rules Published


Regulations for the 1985-86
hunting and fishing seasons
are one step further in the
rule making process as a
result of actions taken at the
meeting of the Game and
Fresh Water Fish Commis-
sion on March 8.
The Commission reviewed
staff recommendations and
conceptually approved the
regulations which will be
advertised in the Florida
Administrative Weekly and
considered for adoption at its
May 10 meeting.
In other business, the Com-
mission agreed to a coopera-
( tive venture with Ducks
Unlimited to enhance water-
fowl improvement projects
in Florida. Ducks Unlimited,
a national organization
which raises millions of
dollars annually to restore
duck breeding grounds in
Canada, is starting to set


aside part of the money for
local waterfowl management
projects. The new venture is
called MARSH, which stands
for Matching Aid to Restore
States Habitat.
The Commission agreed to
match an endowment equal
to 71/2 percent of the total
funds Ducks Unlimited col-
lects in Florida. This year
that endowment would be
about $72,000.
This agreement is contin-
gent upon the* legislature
authorizing funds for the
state's matching share.
At the May 10 meeting,
which will also be held in
Tallahassee, the Commission
will finalize the season dates
and bag limits for the 1985-86
hunting and fishing seasons
and the regulations govern-
ing the state's wildlife man-
agement areas.

Water Fish Commission's
Office of Environmental Ser-
vices said, "The Commission
has been designated as the
lead agency in managing the
tract and that management
involves certain regulations
we feel are best for the long
term use of the area."
The regulations being con-
sidered include prohibiting
the possession of firearms on
the area other than during
designated legal hunting sea-
sons. Firearms could be
transported across the area


by boat or vehicle as long as
they are securely encased or
disassembled.
The proposed regulations
would also ban the use of
permanent tree stands, pro-
hibit the removal of dead or
live plants and trees, and
restrict camping to tents and
camping vehicles.
Eichholz said the 1972
legislature authorized the
state, to purchase environ-
mentally endangered lands
with a $240 million bond


issue.
"Although acreage has
been purchased around the
state, the primary reason for
buying the Gulf-Frankldin
County Tract was to protect
the area's fish and wildlife
resources and for the pur-
chase area to serve as a
buffer for the Apalachicola
River and Bay," he stated.
Eichholz emphasized that
anyone with strong feelings
for or against the proposals
should plan to attend the
meeting.

Toward Understanding:



Does God's Law



Oppose God's Love


by The Rev. Jerry R. Huft
Rector, St. James' Episcopal
Church,. Port St. Joe, Fl.
Many speakers and mold-
ers of public opinion express
the belief that law and love
are in conflict with one
another. They believe that
the law of God is a rigid and
inflexible standard that be-
longs to another age and
another social order. Their
creed makes law unloving
and harsh. On the other hand
they say that love is not
hindered by rules. According
to this opinion, love is gentle
and .ever yielding.
The youth of our country
began to take a philosophical
turn in the late 50's which
later labled them the "Love
Generation". The gurus of
the 60's were men like John
A.'r. Robinson who wrote a
book called "Honest to God",
and Joseph Fletcher who
penned "Situational Ethics:
The New. Morality". Both
Robinson and Fletcher took
pleasure in lifting the famous
line, "Be loving and do as you
please" from St. Augustine's
writings.
Never mind that Augustine
was spinning in his grave
because of this out-of-context
quotation. Our hedonistic and
self-serving natures rejoiced
to discover that such a
notable Christian Father
should be so liberal! We were
in no mood to listen, even if
some one had quoted Au-
gustine's commentary on
John 15:10 where he says,
"Let no one deceive himself
by saying that he loves him
(Jesus), if he does not keep
his commandments; for we
love him only to the extent


taken by the Property Ap-
praisal Adjustment Board.
Comm. Branch seconded the
motion and it passed unani-
mously.
Comm. Branch moved the
Property Appraisal Adjust-
ment Board publish its min-
utes. Comm. Raffield second-
ed the motion 'and; it passed
unanimously.
The Board executed the
following Certificate of the
Property Appraisal Adjust-
ment' Board:'
Certificate of Property Ap-
praisal Adjustment Board,
Pursuant to Section 193.122,
Florida Statutes, Gulf Coun-
ty, Florida, 1984 Tax Roll:
We, the undersigned, as
and constituting the Property
Appraisal Adjustment Board
of the above named county,
do hereby certify that after
approval of the following
described assessment roll by
the Department of Revenue,
all hearings required by s.
194.032, Florida Statutes
have been held and that said
Property Appraisal Adjust-
ment Board is. satisfied that
the Real Property in the
above named county includ-
able on such assessment roll
meets all requirements' im-
posed by the statutes of the
State of Florida and the
requirements and regula-
tions imposed by the Depart-
ment of Revenue. ,
We further certify that it is
hereby ordered that upon
completion of this certificate
and the attachment of the
same to the herein described
assessment roll as a part
thereof, that the said assess-
ment roll be delivered to the
property appraiser of this
county, on the day that this
certificate is dated, who shall
adjust the said assessment
roll in accordance with the
decision of the Property
Appraisal Adjustment Board
and make all required exten-
sions on the roll to show the
tax attributable to all taxable
property contained therein
pursuant to law.
The following figures are
true and correct to the best of
our knowledge and belief:
1. Taxable value of initial
Real Property Assessment
Roll as submitted by Proper-
ty Appraiser to the Property
Appraisal Adjustment
Board, $312,069,849;
2. Net change in taxable
value due to actions of the
Board, $305,773;
3. Taxaole value of Real
Property Assessment Roll
incorporating all changes
due to action of the Property
Appraisal Adjustment
Board, $311,764,076.
In witness thereof we have
subscribed this certificate
and caused the same to be
attached to and made a part
of the above described as-
sessment roU and a copy
thereof spread upon the
minutes of this the 1st day of
November, 1984.


There being no further
business, the meeting then
adjourned.
(Adv.)


that we keep his command-
ments."
We persisted in thinking
that God's law is opposed to
God's love. We informed
ourselves that law was for an
earlier age, and that love was
for the Christian era. Many
of us eventually started
saying that anything is per-
missible- if it is the loving
thing to do.
For instance, the loving
thing is to forgive. To be
loving, society should forgive
its criminals. Since punish-
ment is an outgrowth of law
and order, all hint of it should
be removed from our correc-
tional institutions. To pre-
serve the rights of the
criminal, prisons must be
made comfortable and plea-
sant, with every modern
convenience- because it's
the loving thing to do.
Or, one might say that it is
loving to make children
happy, especially if the child
is disadvantaged or impair-
ed. Since discipline would
make' the child unhappy,
disciplinary actions must be
avoided. No matter how
many nasty old harsh rules
the child happens to break,
adults must respond with
non-judgmental affirma-
tions- because it's the loving
thing to do.
Now my dear reader, if you
would like to become a
prophet, you may do so by
getting a grasp of history.
The only semi-reliable way to
predict the future is by
knowing what has already,
taken place. And as we all
know, it's better to' learn
from someone else's mis-
takeg that it is to learn from
our own.


was a conflict between the
two.
Jesus once said, "As the
Father has loved me, so have'
I loved you; abide in my love.
If you keep my command-
ments, you will abide in my
love, just as I have kept my
Father's commandments
and abide in his love." (John
15:9, 10)
God's laws, his command-
ments, have been given to us
for the enrichment of indivi-
dual life, and for the blessing
of society. The love of God is
best expressed by obeying
the commandments of God.
In other words, obeying- the.
law of God is the evidence of
God's love in the life of the
believer.
What the new morality has
been passing off as -love is
nothing more than the lust
and degradation of the old
immorality. As evidence to-
support this statement, I
point to our current 50
percent divorce rate and our
more than 3 million new
cases of sexually transmitted
diseases each year. Soon 25
'percent of our adult popula-
tion will have been infected.
We have been misled, but
we have been willing dupes.
By common consent we have
agreed that hedonism and
personal pleasures are the
stuff that love is made of.
And by implication, we say
that hardships are the result
of harsh legalism.
I We have assumed that
license was love. We have.
taken unlawful freedoms and
justify ourselves by pointing
to extenuating circumstan-.
ces. We refer to our behavior
as "situational ethics" or the
"new morality."

Congressman

Don Fuqua

Reports


Congress has now given final
approval to legislation to aid our
nation's farmers and we have
also approved emergency aid for
drought stricken areas in Africa.
The two bills are linked and it is
appropriate that they are.
We are able to provide
emergency grain and food relief
to Africa because our farmers
are so very productive. Truly,
the American farmer is capable
of feeding the world. If anything,
the farmer is a victim of his own
ability to produce. With grain
stocks soaring, prices decline
and the farmer has trouble mak-
ing ends meet. Farm assistance
programs, over the years, have
not been perfect. They have,
however, insured supplies of
food to meet the changing
demands of the American public
and at prices we can afford.
The average American
spends 160 of every dollar on
food. In England .it is over 200
and in Russia it is 500 of every
dollar on food. The American
people have come to expect
strong supplies of food at cheap
prices and this may not continue
forever.
President Reagan's advisors
have indicated that he may veto
the bill. I hope he does not veto
it. This is responsible legislation
addressing two major concerns,
the farm crisis and the crisis in
Africa, and it is not costly when
you consider the alternatives. I
have contacted the White House'
to urge the President to sign the
legislation into law for the good
of all. I hope he will take this
Advice.


The problem of drug traf-


fickers from Mexico is becoming
more and more serious. Officials
of the U.:S. Drug Enforcement
Administration have been kid-
napped by drug traffickers in
Mexico and the life of the chief
of DEA in Washington has been
threatened.
Ordinary American citizens
have also been kidnapped and
the State Department is con-
sidering a warning for U.S.
tourists that certain areas of
Mexico are unsafe for travel by
Americans.
While the U.S. government
has stepped up efforts to halt the
flow of illegal drugs from Mex-
ico, the Mexican government
has been dragging its feet in
aiding our efforts.
-Corruption is rampant in the
Mexican drug enforcement field
and many of their police are
suspected of aiding the flow of
illegal drugs. President Reagan
went so far as to order the
Border Patrol to search all
vehicles coming from Mexico in
an effort to get the attention of
the Mexican government. The
plan seems to be working and
Mexican officials have pledged
greater cooperation.
Our government is commit-
ted to the cause of halting the
flow of drugs from Central and
South America but we must de-
pend on the cooperation of
governments from these coun-
tries. Colombia is beginning to
cooperate and this is a big step
forward. Now we need to see
greater cooperation from the
Mexican government if. we have
a chance to have a big impact
on the drug trade. I am hopeful
that actions by our government
will persuade the Mexicans to
cooperate.

popular everywhere in the
world ,except the United
States, it is still the most
inexpensive method of power
generation today with the
exception of water generated
electricity.
Florida Power Corporation
started its lone nuclear gen-
erating plant in 1966, expect-
ing to have it completed in
five years at ,a cost of $150
million. When the plant final-


ly went into production in
1977-six years late, the price
tag had risen to $410 million.
McDonald said changing nu-
clear commission regula-
tions and designs during the
construction period were re-v,
sponsible for the increase in"'
cost and construction time.,
"Today, it would take some
10 to 15 years to get a nuclear
plant into production which is
why there are currently no


applications before the gov-
ernment to build one", Mc-
Donald said.

The speaker noted that
nficlear generated power has
proven to be the safest
method known. "The Three
Mile Island accident was the
worst nuclear power plant
accident in the world, and not
a person was even hurt", he
said.

In giving relative costs in
methods of power genera-
tion, McDonald said it costs
about,a half cent per KW for
fuel to generate electricity
with a nuclear reactor. Coal
costs run about 3.5 cents per
KW 'and oil burning genera-
tors require about five cents
for fuel for each KW. One
nuclear fuel pellet, which
costs less than a dollar,gen-
erates as much heat for.
powering an electricity gen-
erator as 168 barrels of oil.
Florida Power's nuclear
generating plant has had a
good running record since it
went on line in 1977. McDon-
ald said it has -been in
production an average of 89
percent of the time for each
year it has been in operatiorin.
Currently the plant is down
for 20 weeks, making some
renovations and changes at
the direction of the Nuclear
Regulation Commission at an
estimated cost of $70 million.
The plant was producing
perfectly before NRC requir-
ed the shut-down to make
newly designed changes in
the plant.

It's Spring .. Time to Start Making Plans for A Garden


BY ROY LEE CARTER
County Extension Director

If we had to guess, the one
vegetable that people most
often include in their spring
gardens, it would have to be
the tomato. Nothing quite
compares with the fresh
taste of sun-ripened toma-


toes. Judging by the popu-
larity of this vegetable, most
gardeners-feel that raising
this delicious crop is definite-
ly worth the effort.
To raise any vegetables
successfully, you need to
begin with adequate soil
preparation. Tomatoe' are
no different. Tomatoes need


I


CARTER


a slightly acid soil, with a pH
between six-point-zero (6.0)
and six-point-eight (6.8). If
the pH of your soil is less than
six-point-zero, it is too acid
and you should add lime to
correct the problem. But,
since some of our Florida
soils are slightly alkaline,
you really shouldn't add lime
unless a soil test indicates the


need for it. The four to five
lbs. of dolomite per 100 sq. ft.
of garden is the average
.recommended rate. If your
soil pH is above 6.8 you
.should add sulfur or a
fertilizer that contains sul-
fur. My information for this
article was provided by
Extension Vegetable Special-
ist Jim Stephen, of the
University of Florida's Insti-
tute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences (IFAS).
There are a couple of
schools of thought on when to
add fertilizer. Some people
believe in fertilizing the soil
before planting. If you choose
their method, apply two-and-
a-half lbs. of fertilizer for
every 100 sq. ft. of garden.
Use an 8-8-8 with minor
elements. Do this a week
before planting- and mix
the fertilizer thoroughly into
the soil. Three weeks or so
after you plant the tomatoes,

add another two lbs. of
fertilizer per 100 sq. ft. ah a
side dressing, and water
thoroughly.
In tne other system, fertili-
zer isn't added until planting
time. Apply five lbs. of 8-8-8
per 100 sq. ft. Mix 'one-half
into the entire bed, and apply
the other half in furrows
three inches from either side
of the garden rows. Three
weeks after planting, apply
two-and-a-half lbs. of fertili-
zer as a side dressing, and
make additional sidedressing
of lb. per 100 sq. ft. every two
or three weeks. With either
method, it's important to
stagger the applications. of
fertilizer, adding a total of
'about 10 lbs. per 100 sq. ft.
during the. growing season.
Before planting, be sure all
frost damage has passed.
Also, choose the healthiest.

plants.
Water is lost chiefly. by
evaporation and transpira-
tion by plants. Experience is
your best guide for how often
to water..Look at the soil to
see how fast it dries, and
watch your plants to see how
quickly they wilt. With very
little practice you can quick-
ly discover how often you
need to water each month,
and how fast and long you
have to water to replenish the
supply.
These guidelines can make
your gardening endeavor
more successful and should

to transplant on a cloudy day,
or in late afternoon, and as
soon as possible after a rain.
It's a good idea to set your
plants slightly deeper than
they were growing at the
nursery. You might also
want to add a cutworm
control at the same time. If
the tomato variety you're
growing requires staking,
you can drive stakes into the
soil at the time of planting.
.Place the stakes three or four
inches from the plants. As
they grow, simply tie them to
the stakes with strings.
To help your plants off to a
good start, make up a starter
solution of one or two table-
spoons of an all-purpose
garden fertilizer dissolved in
a gallon of water. Pour about
a pint of this liquid into the
planting hole as you set each
plant. Protect the new plants
by shading them for a few
days after transplanting.

One of the' secrets to
successful, gardening'' is,
knowing how to water.
Most maintenance techni-
ques have easy-to-learn rules
to follow. For example, ferti-
lizing, pest control and prun-
ing. But watering 'has no
specific rules to follow be-
cause when to water and how
much, to water depends on
kinds of plants, type of soil,
time of year and weather
conditions. So, if you think
your particular watering
problems are different than
your neighbors you'ree prob-

State Plan



Apalachee Regional Plan-
.ning Council Policy Planner,
Sharon Foster, reports that
th e tate plan was transmit-
ted ton the Legislature on
March 6. The March 1st draft
of proposed Florida State
Pl6in is to' be considered this
session. If approved by -the
Legislature and adopted into
law, the State Plan will give
regional planning councils 12
months to get a first draft of
their regional plans into-the
Governor's Office for com-
ments. One of the first things
done in the regional planning.
'process has been to organize
a planning committee con-
sisting of representatives
from each county in the
region.
"Six representatives have
.already been' named by
county commissions in Apa-
lachee Region: Pat Crisp,
Jackson County; James.
Floyd, Franklin County; Don
Latiham, Gadsden County;
Ted Mack, Leon County;
Murray McLaughlin, Wakul-
la.County; and Larry Wells,
Gulf County;


ably right.
Here are a few ideas you
can use to improve your
watering efficiency. Closely
study your lawn or garden:
Acquire a coring device to
use to remove soil to see if it
is wet or dry. You need to
find out the depth of water
penetration after/ rain or-
-irrigation. Next, check the
amount of water supplied by
your sprinkler. Place several:
coffee cans at intervals
around your lawn. When the.
sprinkler has run for'an hour,'
see how much water is .in,
each can. The amount should
.be about the same in each
can if the sprinkler is deliver-
ing water uniformly. For
most'of our sandy soils, the
top six to twelve inches
should be wet at each irriga- -
tion. Determine how long or
h6w much water is required
to wet your soil to this depth,
and you will then know about
how long you need to water.
The core sampler. can also be
Used to monitor how fast your
soil dries out.
To provide proper distribu-
tion and. to avoid wasting
water, apply water only as
fast as the rate as which
water infiltrates the soil.
Operate the sprinklers at a
rate only as fast as the soil
will take in the water,
because runoff from too
rapid irrigation does your
plants no good and costs you
money.
Check several areas in
your lawn to determine how
slow and how 'long it takes
your particular sprinkler to
apply enough water to wet
the top six to twelve inches of
soil and still avoid any
runoff. This will give you a
guideline to use for time' of
irrigation. Frequency of wa-
tering depends on the rate of
water loss, which in turn
depends on the soil type, its
