FIRES!



Race Through 150 Acres of


Gulf Woodlands In Two Days


With the rest of the Southeast
suffering from raging forest fires,
Gulf County came in for its share this
week, when eight woods fires burned
approximately 150 acres.
Jim McNeill, Jr., of Indian Pass
told The Star there were five separate
fires going at one time in the area
south of Dead Man's Curve to the
Franklin County line. McNeill said the
) fires burned approximately 85 acre's
of woodlands and kept a half dozen
fire fighting companies busy all
afternoon.
The fires started Monday at noon
and were suspected to have been
caused by a truck with a faulty
exhaust setting brush on fire beside
highway C-30 near the Dead Man's
Curve area. During the afternoon, the
blazes 'sprang up at Gulf Pines
Subdivision, Money Bayou and a
small fire on Indian Peninsula. "We
feel reasonably sure- the fire on the
Peninsula was set by kids playing
with fire", McNeill said.
Although no homes were. burned
or damaged, a woods fire in the Gulf
Pines Subdivision burned all around a
vacation home there, but failed to set
it on fire.


Smoke covered highway C-30 all
afternoon Monday and caused law
enforcement agencies to close the
road to traffic. "Visibility was zero for
about a mile on the road" said a
Sheriff's Department spokesman. The
road was opened again to traffic
Monday night at about 11:00 p.m..
Fire fighting units from Port St.
Joe, Highland View, the Beaches and
St. Joe Paper Company joined Florida
Forest Service units in controlling the
blaze. Most of the fire was adjacent to
the highway but high winds whipped
the flames and threatened to spread
the destruction in an even wider area.
The fire started on the water side
of C-30, but jumped the highway into
the dense woodlands on the other side
of the road in several places during
the afternoon.
MORE FIRES TUESDAY
More fires broke out Tuesday,
with three reported going in the
county at one time.
Larry Woodman, in charge of
forestry operations for St. Joe Paper
Company, said the blazes Tuesday
were largely on their land, and burned
around 65 acres during the day.


"We feel the fires were caused
from natural circumstances which
are present this time of the year. It's
dry, the undergrowth hasn't greened
out yet and the humidity is low,
making for ideal fire conditions.'
Anything will set it off", 'Woodman
said. Humidity for Gulf County was
reported to be 23 percent Monday and
27 percent Tuesday, which is dry as a
chip for Gulf County.
Woodman said the worst fire
Tuesday was in the swamp south of
Jones Homestead. ''The fire made up
in the Washington Branch area and
burned about 60 acres before it was
brought under control", Woodman
reported. He said Forest Service units
from all over the county converged on
the flames, along with SJPC units.
Area fire departments kept the flames
away from homes and buildings in the
area.
Woodman said it wasn't unusual
for forest fires to break out with
conditions, like they are at present.

Commissioner Everett
Owens voiced some of his
homespun philosophy when
he quipped, "A few years
ago, someone who had been
injured would have been glad
of even a ride to, the hospital
in a pulpwood truck. Now we-
have ambulances and train-
ed crews and it looks like
we're going to have to put a"
trained doctor'on each one of
them".
The ambulance service has
been notified by the State of
Florida they cannot transfer
patients carrying the IV's
under a new state rule which
went into effect January 1 of
this year. Andy Millergren,
director of the south Gulf
County. ambulance stations
said the service could handle
patients carrying a plain IV
(that .is, no medication in-
volved) if a variance is
granted by the state. "Unless
we have that variance, we
can transfer no patients
carrying IV's" Millergren
said.
Millergren went on to point
out that all of Gulf County's
service is basic life support
'units and the state requires
that a service have advanced
life support capabilities to
carry patients from one
hospital to another. Miller-
gren said he was licensed to
operate an advanced support
service, but he couldn't be in
the vehicle all the time. He


said a registered nurse could
be utilized after additional
training was given, but that
would take some time. The
ambulance director said his
squad would have trained
and licensed personnel by
August 1, but there were still
a few items of equipment
needed for the ambulance
vehicles in order to comply
with state rules.
Chairman Eldridge Money
asked attorney Rish to pur-
sue a variance for the service_ -
and to make contacts -in

THE STAR


THURSDAY, APR. 11, 1985


One of the main pieces of
business to come before the
Legislature will be raising the
drinking age in Florida to age 21. It
was only a few years ago the age
was reduced from age 21 to age 18,
and then, after the Legislators saw
they had made a mistake, it was
raised back to age 19.
One of the reasons for resisting
the hike in the drinking age has
been the righteousness indignation
expressed over the threat of the
federal government to refuse to
pass on federal highway funds to
states which didn't raise the age
limit.
Heavenly days!
With such indignation over this
matter, does this mean we will no
longer accept the federal specifica-
tions for building roads in which
there is federal money? Does this
also mean we will no longer accept
block grant money because of a
federal guideline about how it is to
be spent and accounted for?
What we're trying to say is that
the detractors from moving the age



It's Easy

It was with dismay that we
learned of the merger of the Telan
Federal Credit Union here in Port
St. Joe .and the Tyndall Federal
Credit Union. We understand the
reasons for doing it-sort of-but it
was still a. matter of dismay with
us.
What the merger meant was
;that Telan credit union was actual-
iy swallowed up by -the Tyndall
institution. The Tyndall organiza-
tion is a growing vibrant organiza-
tion with a lot of members and a lot
.of money, while Telan is a small
neighborhood type operation where
j1, the members.. ad ,the people
4wfo-operate the financial coopera- :
tive know and call each other by.



If DER !

The City Commission' has
'finally been able to get someone
from DER to say "yes" to a
request for a permit to rebuild
the boat landing facilities at -the
end of Fifth Street of a sound arid
maintenance-free material and
manner.
This doesn't mean there is no'
;"longer a wait about getting started
;with the project. The approval by
the DER representative means he
will recommend it to DER officials.
'They must ultimately make the
decision but, hopefully, they will


back where it should be, don't have
much more than a lame half excuse
not to do so.
Even those most affected by
the change in age limits-those
young adults between the ages of 19
and 21, favor the change, with 64
percent of those young adults
polled in favor of the change.
Overall, 74 percent of Florida
adults surveyed support a higher
drinking age. That's more than
supported the move last year when
it was brought up. Evenlast.year, a
majority of the people surveyed
approved the change.
In other words, most of the
people in the state of Florida-
along with the federal government
-favor a return to the age 21 age
limit for drinking alcoholic bever-
ages.
Count us as one of those who
favors the return to age 21.
Actually, you can count us as one to
favor doing away with the bever-
age, period; but that's another
story..

their first name.

The most dismal thought which
comes to us by the merger is that
here is some more Port St. Joe
money going to Panama City.
Maybe the members will get to see
some of it again, but credit unions
are no different than banks in one
respect; you can take no more out
of it than you put into it in the long
run.
We would much rather have
seen Telan merge with some local
organization ifthey felt they had to
merge with anyone.. But, such ideas

follow the recommendation of their
field officer.
It's a shame the DER can't
arrange itself into an organization
which is more responsive to the
public which pays its salaries.
If DER were more accessible,
more eager to- be of service, less
arrogant of their position, they
probably could get more coopera-
tion -and would be much better
understood by the people of this
state who have the power to ban
DER if they so desire.


Kesley Colbert's Country Column


Daddy Had the Best Time of All


By JOSH COLBERT
... Guest Columnist
Dear Daddy,
I sure am sorry that you
are not feeling well enough to
write your column this week.
You have been sick ever
since we got back from our
vacation. I have been want-
ing to thank you for taking us
to Walt Disney World but
mom said riot to mention
Walt Disney to you- it only
makes you sicker. You
must'a hated to leave even
more than I did- huh, Dad.
It was some more good
vacation. As we were driving
down you kept telling us
"Boys, this is a vacation so
let's all act right." Dad, you
see the problem there was-
we'd never been on a 'vaca-
tion before so me and Jesse
didn't know how we were
supposed to act. We spent the
night in a real hotel room--
wasn't that fun Dad. And,
Dad, I don't ever remember


being as excited as I was that
first morning we were driv-
ing to Disney World. You
were excited, too. Remem-
ber? You kept saying "Look
at all these cars. Everybody
in the world must be going to
Disneyworld this morning."
And when we got there and
were going through the gates
all you kept muttering was
"Where did all these people
come from." Dad, you seem-
ed more excited about the
crowd than you did about
seeing the castle. That's why
I askedyou if you were ready
to see Cinderella's castle.
You said "I can hardly wait,
son." I knew you were
excited, too.
. Dad, I've got to tell you-
that's about the best three
days we've ever had. We
tried to ride every ride and
see every show. I knew you
were having a good time
because you kept telling
mother "Let's make sure we


haven't missed anything."
That's why I was a little
surprised. Dad, when you
wouldn't ride Dumbo, the
Flying Elephant. But you
sure were thinking of us the
whole time because about
every five minutes or so
you'd say "Cathy, let's stop
and set down for a while-
the boys need a rest." I guess
you just didn't realize that we
were having too much fun to
be tired.
Dad. I've got to be honest-
you did embarrass us all one
time- remember when we'd
stood in line for about 45
minutes waiting to ride space
mountain. We finally get up
there and you see that rocket
take off and you decide
you're not going to get on.
Remember Dad. That was
some scene- it took five of
those guys in the funny suits
to put you in that car but I
know you had fun riding
down because I heard you


screaming all the way to the
bottom. You sure looked
kipd'a funny when we got
out- your face was green.
Gosh, you really got into that
ride Dad. Do you reckon we
could build a Space Mountain
in our back yard?
You were so helpful on the
trip- you answered all our
questions or at least some of
them anyway. Remember?
Like when we were going into
Epcot Center I asked you
what the word Epcot meant.
You said you weren't sure
but that it sounded like it was
named after a South Ameri-
can fruit. That was a good
one Dad, but I knew you were
putting me on because you
didn't know the real answer.
We sure had fun in there even
if none of us:knew what an
Epcot was. I thought you
were going to get mad at that
Mexican restaurant when
Jesse spilled his Mr. Pibb all
over the table. But you just


said "Jesse, you could have
at least waited till after we
had the blessing before you
knocked that off." Dad, I
didn't like that Mexican food
but I guess you did; you kept
asking mom "What is this
thing called that I'm eating."
It sure was a fun day, Dad,
wasn't it? That night as we
were leaving you looked over
at me and said "Son, I know
what the Epcot stands for-
Every Person Comes Out
Tired." Thanks for answer-
ing my question, Dad.
I know you were, proud of
little Jesse on the trip
because he sure paid atten-
tion to what you told him.
Remember Dad? The day
after we had been to Epcot

Here We've Written A Paragraph or Two About Several Timely Subjects


:POT POURRI
Our state legislature is in
'session over in Tallahassee, now.
' They will be living in the fast lane for
'at 'least 60 days, then we go on
'overtime.
There's a host of legislation to be
:taken up this year, in an election off
'year, and a pledge by everybody but
,the janitor in the old Capitol building
-not to raise taxes. Raising taxes
seems to be the thing most people
~on't want the Legislature to do this
:year. As a matter of fact, I've been
-sitting here thinking back through my
-recollection, and I can't, for the life of
.mne, ever remember a session of the
:Legislature which came into Talla-
:assee with the endorsement of a
:groundswell public opinion that any
--year has ever been THE year to raise
-taxes. I don't think it has ever
,happened.
Still, the taxes got raised .
regularly.
e One of the preliminary 'tax
questions to come up before the
zLegislatiure dribbled back into Talla-
Ehassee was the, gas tax. How are we
"gonna k ep on building roads in
:Florida with the gas tax take eroding


every day' with the falling price of
gasoline? The obvious answer was to
put a floor under the eroding tax rate
to keep the income from declining any
further.


There is also some talk on the
medical malpractice bill which is
designed to cure all our medical cost
ailments from the price of X-ray for
our broken toe to the taste of hospital

Now, after- the Legislature is
finally in: session and. everybody is
gathered around the podium and can
hear the' genius' of.the'Rep'esentative
making the suggestion, the. obvious
solution is coming up as a "distinct
possibility".
Why someone who could come up
with the unfavorable corporate in-
come tax, as complex as it was,
couldn't produce a solution to the gas
tax problem is beyond me.

day and will be in constant touch with

food.
We'll just have to wait and see
about that one.
+++++ +
SPEAKING OF HOSPITAL food,
I see where Bill Shroeder is' going
"home" from his room at Humana
Hospital in St. Louis.
If you can call a hospital-equipped
apartment across the street from the
hospital "home", then Shroeder is on
his way.


The artificial heart transplant
patient will take his air pump and
gaggle of hoses along in order to keep
his artificial heart pumping. As a
matter of fact, were I Bill Shroeder, I
would insist on taking the parapherna-
lia with me. I imagine that by now Mr.
Shroeder has become attached to the
instruments.

I HAD A BIRTHDAY the other
day, as I told you the other week.


Someone tried to make me feel good
by slapping me on the back and
jovially shouting, "Cheer up, you're
only as old as you feel!"
Gosh, I hope not!
If you have a bad bone or two in
your older body these changeable
days when it is trying to storm one day
and clear and warm the next; when it
is cold in the morning and up to 75 or
80 degrees during the day, you will
know what I mean when I'm hoping
I'm not as old as I feel.
Old and .damaged bones sort of
take this weather begrudgingly:.
I'm firmly convinced that's the
reason baseball teams have spring
training. The ball players are in good
shape, but this changing weather
causes the players to have a need of
loosening up and getting the old joints
working again.
Dennis the Menace said the other
day in the funny papers that spring
was winter and summer fighting to
see who would be first.
That's an apt description and
those of us who have less than perfect
bones catch the fallout from this fight
with the seasons. It causes us to feel


older than we look in almost all
occasions.

POOR OLD 'GRIZZLEY Adams"
evidently couldn't make it petting
bears and didn't know how to do
anything else.
I saw where he got picked up for
peddling cocaine to make a buck.
Lover of the great outdoors or not, a
judge put the clamps on Dan
Haggerty, as he is known everywhere
except on television, giving him a
sentence of 90 days in jail and three
years on probation.
It's demoralizing to have a man
like Haggerty, who has spent most of
his career trying to promote the clean,
uncluttered life, botching up his
image and all the good he might have
done by getting involved in an activity
which is designed to do anything
except promote the clean and unclut-
tered life.
It's also ironic that Haggerty had
such great success on TV wrestling
those big bears and taming all sorts of
critturs, but he couldn't tame his
desire or dependance on that little
pinch of white powder every once in a
while.

Rich Family
Has Reunion
The E. J. Rich Family had
their annual Easter Family
Reunion or April 7. A cover-
ed dish luncheon was enjoyed
by all. Afterwards, the child-
ren enjoyed an Easter Egg
Hunt on the front lawn.
Those in attendance were:
Mr. and Mrs. E. J. Rich; Mr.


blessing and were three or
four minutes into the meal
before Jesse knocked his Mr.
Pibb into mother's lap. At
least, Dad, we had the good
sense to be in the other booth.
I tried to watch you real
close to see what you enjoyed
most about Disney World and
I think I figured it out. I
thought for a while it was the
people because you kept
saying all day long "Look at
all these people, where did
they come from." But you


gave away your favorite part
the last night we were there.
Remember? We had all gone
to bed and you thought we
were asleep and you said to
Mother "I can't believe I
stood in line for 1 hour and 12
minutes to see Mr. Toad's
Wild Ride."
Thanks again for taking us
Dad. You're the greatest.
When you get well can we go
back?
Love,
Josh

P.S. I'm sorry that I spilled
my milk on you the last
morning at that Pancake
House. It was an accident.

decisions the county needed
to make during the next few
weeks. Branch said he would
accept the appointment and
do what he could but pointed
out that Gunn was still in
charge until the system was
accepted and said he would
act as a liaison between Gunn
and the Board.

Branch's function will be to
make Commission decisions
regarding the system during
the start-up period.


DEAD LAKES
The Commission affirmed
its intentions to take an
active part in the hearings,
which begins next week in
Blountstown, to determine
when and how to remove the,
Dead Lakes Dam. The coun-
ty will join in the hearing
being conducted by' the
Northwest Florida Water
Management District, who
has been charged with the
responsibility of taking the
dam out.


The Commission decided it
would not become actively'
involved in the hearing next
week unless it is necessary
they do so in order to bring
out certain points. As Com-
missioner Doug Birmingham
pointed out, "Being an active
party gives us the opportun-
ity of becoming a part of the
hearing without having to
wait to be subpoenaed".
The Gulf County Commis-
sion has gone on record as


unanimously favoring the
dam's removal.
OTHER BUSINESS
In other matters of busi-
ness, the Commission:
-Ruled that any structure
on Highway 98 could hook up
to the Beach water system
through a change order and
bear all the expense of the
hook up.
-Agreed to ask Gulf Coast
Electric for permission to
use a portion of one of its
rights of way to locate a solid
waste trailer in Williams-
burg Subdivision near Wewa-
-hitchka.


-Accepted a bid of $36,938
from Burford Equiptent
Company, to furnish the
county, with a wheel type
loader for the new solid
waste transfer station under
construction near Port St.
Joe.
-Authorized payment of
$9,750 to Barret, Carlin and
Daffin, engineers for prepar-
ation of procedures, permit
requests and engineering for
closing the Port St. Joe
landfill site and accepted an
offer of DER* to install
monitoring wells around the
abandoned site at no cost to
the county.

Corinne Costin Gibson Li-
brary, under the direction of
President Wayne Childers,
several interesting and very
important questions came up
for discussion.
The meeting was opened
with the pledge of allegiance
to the flag of the United
States of America, led by
Mrs. Ralph Swatts, Sr. and
was followed by an uplifting
prayer by Mrs. Joe Johnson.
Following the reading and
approval of the minutes, the
name of Miss Phyllis Cumbie
was submitted for member-
*ship and was approved by all
the members in attendance.
Miss Maurell Cumbie re-
ported that a train had been
located in the woods north of
Lake Wimico. The president
explained that the track had
been needed immediately
elsewhere and had been
hastily removed without first
moving the train. Later the
cost of removing it would
have been prohibitive, and it
was left standing.
At this time society mem-
bers are deeply concerned
about the Museum situation,
including the proposal to cut
back by reducing the person-
nelt and in other ways.
Actually personnel has al-
ready been reduced and the
museum is suffering as. a
result of this cut-back- the
grounds and the museum
up-keep;
Constitution State Park is
the "show-place" of the city,
and without sufficient help,
proper maintenance is im-
possible. The tragedy is that
this cut-back has come at the
worst possible time, when the
Sesque-Centennial Celebra-

Garden Club
Next Thursday
The Port St. Joe Garden
Club will meet .Thursday,
April 11, at 2:00 P.M. at the
Garden Center on Eighth
Street for a very informative
meeting.
The program, entitled,
"Responsibilities and Duties
of Garden Club Officers" will
be presented by Mrs, Noble
Stone; who is the club parli-
mentarian.
ostesses for this occasion
are Mesdames Agnes Cul-
pepper, Daisy Johnson, and
Edith Stone.


tion is being looked forward
to, and additional help would
&ie in order rather than what
is now available.
The Historical Society feels
that in all of Florida there is
no spot that is historically
.more important than "the
Constitution State Park in
Port St. Joe, originally "St.
Joseph", because it was here


that the first state constitu-
tion was drawn up and
signed. Members of the So-
ciety are appealing to the
people of Port St. Joe to stand
behind them in protest of the
cut-back to the museum, and
to protest the sacrifice of any
part of these special grounds
to other sources. Your sup-
port is needed!

CENTRAL
VISUAL FIELDS
The natural aging process may
decrease one's field of vision,
which is defined as the peripheral
distance one sees when looking
straight ahead. In more extreme
cases, a person of 60 may have
only about half as large a visual
'field as a person of 20.,
A complete visual examination
includes testing for peripheral vi-
sion.
One way of testing visual fields
is to asc the patient to look
straight ahead at a defined
target, generally a light. At the
same time, the examiner flashes
lights at various distances from
the central fixation target, and
asks the patient whether he or
she sees the peripheral lights'and
how many of the lights are visi-
ble. The lights may be circles, or
they may be other shapes.
Peripheral vision is important
for avoiding accidents, driving,
sports, crossing the street,
soldiering-an .infinite number
of everyday activities. In some
patients, peripheral vision can be
improved with contact lenses.

Painting Donated
Recently a beautiful painting of the old Methodist Church
building that stood on Long Avenue for years, was presented to
the First United Methodist Church. The painting is a memorial
in memory of Robert Keith Bedwell, son of Mr. and Mrs.
Robert J. Bedwell of Montgomery, Alabama and grandson of
Mr. and Mrs. Hubert Brinson of Port St. Joe. The painting is by
Betty Hester Miller, niece of the Brinsons. The old Methodist
Church building was built in 1912 and torn down in the early
1950's. In the photo above, Betty Hester Miller, Rev. Al Har-
bour, pastor of First United Methodist and Mr. and Mrs.
Hubert Brinson pose with the painting before it was hung in the

ACNE IS NO JOKE ml
Nobody has come up with proof that treating
acne helps to curb juvenile delinquency. But
V medical authorities have reached the conclusion
that many youngsters with severe cases of acne
often feel "left out" in the social swim. This has been
known to lead to unfortunate personality problems.
But why should it? We know that physicians
can treat acne successfully in a great majority of
S cases. Medicines are available which can help
reduce the severity of acne-and this in itself can do
wonders for a sensitive boy or girl. If your teenager
- has acne, we suggest that you consult your doctor as
the very first step. Should he prescribe medication
for treatment, we will have it available in our
prescription laboratory.
"A GREAT MANY PEOPLE ENTRUST US
with their prescriptions, health needs and other
S pharmacy products. We consider this trust a
privilege and a duty. May we be your personal

A State Record Rack


A white-tailed deer scoring
181 2-8 points has been
certified by the Florida
Game and Fresh Water Fish
'Commission (GFC) as the
new state record for non-typi-
cal deer antlers.
The record buck was killed
by Junior Hurst of Blounts-
town in December 1970 in
Calhoun County. Hurst's
buck surpasses the previous
record for a non-typical rack
which scored 163 % points. It


was taken by Billy Joe Bass
of Madison in 1975.
The GFC initiated the
Florida buck registry in the
fall of 1982 to recognize the
biggest racked deer killed in
the state. Antlers are scored
as either typical or non-typi-
cal, depending on their shape
and configuration.
A non-typical rack is one
with points that are unusual
in location and originate
from other points or from the

Hurst killed the buck while
dog hunting with 10 to 12.
companions near Clarksville.
Although time has clouded
his memory of the details,
Hurst remembers the day
.was rainy and cold.
But that didn't stop him
from getting the deer when
he finally had the opportuni-
ty. Hurstsaid he didn't weigh
the deer, but he believes it
' was about 180 pounds or so
which would not be unusual
for bucks in the area's
farming country; The deer's
rack has 22 tines and is 26
inches at its widest location.
According to Hurst, the


Time for Mowing Lawns


Pensacola News Journal ran
a story and photograph after
the deer was killed. Friends
of Hurst remembered the
rack and notified the GFC's
volunteer Wildlife Reserve
which' recenlty scored the
trophy.
As of this date, no deer
.killed in Florida has scored
high enough to qualify for the
Boone and Crockett (B & C)
register.
To make B & C's register,
non-typical racks must score
195 points and typical racks
must score 170. Larry Furr of
Greensboro leads the field in
Florida with the largest
typical rack, a' buck from
Gadsden County which
scored 168 Vs points.

BY ROY LEE CARTER
County Extension Director
Lawn care is a year round
job in Florida. However, as
warm weather approaches
the growth rate of the grass
increases which means mow-
ing frequency also increases.
Mowing is an essential part
of lawn care. The height to
which the lawn is cut and how
often it is cut are important
to the health of the grass. My
information was provided by
IFAS Extension Horticul-
turist Dr. Robert J. Black.
The height to which a lawn
should be mowed depends on
the type of grass, its growth
habit and texture. Pensacola
and Paraguayan bahia grass
should be cut from three to
four inches high, while Ar-
gentine bahia grass is best
cut from two to thtee inches
high. Both carpet grass and
centipede grass can be main-
tained from 1'2 to two inches
high. St. Augustine grass
cultuvars vary in the proper
cutting height. Cutting height
for Roselawn and common is
three to. four. inches; for
Bitterblue, Scott 1081, and
Floratam is two to three
inches; while 'Dwarf Flora-
tine may be cut as low as one
to two inches. Zoysia grasses
also vary. in correct cutting
heights: Japonica should be
cut to a height of two to three
inches; Meyer, one to two
inches; and Emerald. 2 to
one inch. Common Bermuda
grasses can be mowed at i'
to one inch, while the hybrid
Bermuda grasses can ,be
clipped as low.as one-third
inch.
The correct cutting height
is important to the health of
your lawn. The leaves must
produce enough food to allow
the. plant to survive and,
grow. If too much of the
leaves are removed the grass
will starve, and your sod will
become thin, look bad and be
more susceptible to invasion
by weeds and pests. Mowing
too high causes the buildup of
thatch (a spongy layer of
plant debris) and produces a
ragged looking lawn.
The frequency of mowing
is dependent on the type of


lawn grasses, the mainte-
nance program and the wea-
ther. Warm weather and
heavy fertilization will in-
crease the growth rate of
grasses. as a result they will
need to be mowed more
often. Your iawn should be
cut frequently enough so that
no more than one-third of the
leaf surface is removed at
the time. Carpet grass and
centipede grass may not
need, to be cut more often
than once every 10 to 14 days.
while hybrid bermuda grass
ihay need to be cut every
three days. Most lawn gras-
ses fit within this range. The
important thing to remember
is leave twice as much leaf
surface as you remove at any
single mowing, or, if you
want to maintain your lawn-
at two inches, cut your grass
when it is three inches high.
It is important to follow
good mowing practices. Keep
your lawnmower sharp and.
clean. Dull blades will tear
the leaves, giving an uneven
ragged appearance and often
-causes the lawn to look gray
or brown. Cutting grass when
it is wet clogs the mower, and
often causes an uneven cut.
Remember, proper mow-


ing is one of the most
important factors contri-
buting to an attractive lawn.
Proper mowing means that


the grass is cut at the
optimum height and often, to
keep it healthy and attrac-
tive.

ary 26, 1985, regular meeting.
Pursuant to advertisement
to receive bids for up to seven
concrete bridge spans, new
or used, to be purchased by
Gulf County, no bids were
received. Upon, the at-
torney's advice and Comm.
Birmingham's suggestion,
the Board agreed to negoti-
ate to purchase these bridge
spans from a supplier due to
lack of response to its bid
advertisement.
Pursuant to advertisement
to receive sealed bids from
any person; company or
cooperation interested in
selling the county two trans-
fer trailers, new or used, for
use at the Landfill Transfer
Station, the following bids
were received:' Ingram
Equipment Company, Doth-.
an, Alabama, $70,765.00.
Comm. Branch moved the

pany provided the bid met

tion of Mosquito Control

ed Building Inspector Manu-
el review the bid specifica-
tions and report back to the

Upon vote, the motion passed
unanimously. O-
Troy Davis, Overstreet
Fire Department, presented
specifications and a price
quote for a fire truck (ap-.
proximately $10,000- with a
trade-in value of $1,500) for
his department, as' per the
Chairman's instructions.
Comm. Branch moved the
Board advertise to receive
bids to purchase a used fire
truck for the Overstreet Fire
Department. Comm. Birin-
ingham seconded the motion
for discussion, inquiring j f
there would be an unexpend-
ed amount available in the
Capital Outlay funds budget-
ed for the transfer station.
Comm. Branch tated he had
checked; however, it was
hard to determine if any
funds would be unexpended
before completion of the
system. Comm. Birmingham
withdrew his second. Comm.
Branch withdrew his motion
for further discussion. The
Board requested the finance
officer research projection of
unexpended funds and report
back to the Board before the
end of the nieeting. Comm.
Branch then moved the
Board advertise to receive
bids for a used fire truck for
the Overstreet Fire -Depart-
ment. Comm. Owens second-
ed the motion. Upon Comm.
Owens inquiry, the Board
agreed. if funds were avail-
.able and the Board pur-
chased a truck. for the
Overstreet Fire Department,
they would not purchase a
Division of Forestry truck for
the department when it be-
came available. Upon vote,
the motion passed unani-
mously ....-- --
Port St. Joe Ambulance
Director Millergren reported
he had advertised for two
full-time and two part-time
job openings, and had filled
all positions as follows, ex-
cept one full-time position:
Marvin Walters, part-time to
full-time; Eddie Kemp, new
part-time; and Mark Snell,
new part-time. The Board
approved the hiring of the
persons recommended by the
Ambulance Director.
PORT St. Joe Ambulance
employee Timmy Whitfield
stated he had been in the
hospital recently and after
release, Ambulance Director
Millergren told him to report
to work on Thursday of last
week. In the meantime the
Wewahitchka Ambulance
Squad needed help on an
ambulance run, which was a
life and death situation; he
went on the run and Miller-


gren had called and question-
ed him about it. Comm.
Owens, responsible for this
department, reported he had
tried to set up a meeting with
Millergren and Whitfield con-
cerning this matter, but
Whitfield wanted to meet
with the entire Board.
Comm. Owens stated he had
talked to them individually
on the phone, with Millergren
stating Whitfield quit and
Whitfield saying he had been


fired. Ambulance Director
Milelrgren said he would live
with the Board's decision;
however, he recommended
Whitfield not be reinstated to.
his position as it would cause
a lot of hardship in the
department, due to other
personnel having to work
overtime to cover his shift,
etc. Ward McDaniel and
Roger Thomas, of the Wewa-
hitchka Ambulance Squad
discussed Whitfield's volun-
teer work with the Wewahit-
chka Ambulance Depart-
ment and the Chairman read
a letter to the Board from
Mr. and Mrs. Tom Smith
thanking Whitfield for his
help in being on the ambu-
lance run. After further
discussion' by the entire-
Board, Millergren, Whitfield
and Mrs. Whitfield, Comm.
Branch stated Millergren
had misinterpreted Board
policy as it was not the
Board's concern what an
employee did on their off
time and Whitfield's doctor's
excuse was for him to return
to work Thursday. Comm.
Branch then moved Miller,
green put Whitfield back to
wrok Monday and in the
future check with the Com-
mission concerning Board
policy; stating he felt there
was fault on both sides in this
situation. Comm. Traylor
seconded the motion. Upon
vote, the motion passed
unanimously, with Comm.
Owens stating he voted yes

off work under doctor's care.'

The Sheriff further reported

being lack of proper docu-
mentation by previous. Civil
Defense supervisors. Comm.
Birmingham moved the
County not spend a lot of
money investigating these-
items further; that the Sher-
iff may locate or obtain
information'on some of this
equipment through the

vestigation and the Board

Board their suggestion to
turn it over to the Florida
Bureau of Law Enforcement

found or determined lost.
Comm. Owens said let it be
shown in minutes the reason
Civil Defense Director Wells.

at the correct time is equip-
ment couldn't be found when
he took charge of the depart-
ment.
At the Sheriff's second
request for approximately
$15,000.00 funding for a new
communication system at
the mSheriff's Department,
Comm. Branch moved,


based on the emergency
situation, Clerk Gates and
Finance Officer Lister
search for available funds in
the budget to purchase this
equipment. Comm. Birming-
ham seconded the motion
and it passed unanimously.
Attorney Rish reported his
office was researching the
county's granted right-of-
way from Southwest Forest
Industries as the U. S. Corps
of Engineers had requested

rections' officers are to meet
with him and the Sheriff
concerning the lawsuit.
Upon the attorney's recom- .
mendation, Comm. Branch
moved the Board, compro-
mise and settle out of court
for $5,000 payment to the
Medical Examiner's Office
in the lawsuit- Sapala vs.
Gulf County Board of County
Commission, case No. 83-66.
Comm. Traylor seconded the
-motion and it passed unani-
mously.
After discussion by the
Attorney and the Board of
time consuming costly legal
*research requested by de-L
apartment supervisors, the
Board requested Deputy
Clerk Cumbie write the Mos-
quito Control and Road De-
partment supervisors of the
Board's direction that they
contact the Commissioner
who has departmental re-
sponsibility for their depart-
ment concerning requests for
the county attorney to re-
search legal descriptions or
any legal work other than
routine, who will decide
whether or not to request the
attorney perform this work
for the Board.
The Attorney reported the
.*'Property Appraisal Adjust-
ment Board had received a
letter from Property Ap-
praiser :Colbert stating he-
was not pursuing the former
Property Appraiser's appeal
to the Department of Reve-
nue on the decisions made by
the Property Appraisal Ad-
justment Board, and' the
Property Appraisal Adjust-
ment Board had held their
final hearing on March 11,
1985.
Comm. Branch moved the
Board adopt the proposed
resolution received from Os-
ceola County requesting an
amendment to the Florida
Statutes to increase the tax,
on deeds and other instru-
ments from 45 cents to 50
cents for each $100, with the
additional five cents going to
the County as, additional
revenue. The motion died for
lack of a second.
The Chairman requested
Deputy Clerk Cumbie write
the Apalachee Regional
Planning Council informing,
them in response to their
letter he is appointing Civil
Defense Director to work
with the Apalachee Regional
Planning Council staff on the
Comprehensive Regional
Policy Plan.
Comm. Birmingham
moved the Board pursue

as this is where citizens want
the trailer located. Comm.
Traylor seconded the motion
and it. passed with the
following vote. Comm. Birm-
ingham, Traylor, and the
Chairman voted yes. Comm.
Branch and Owens voted no.
Comm. Branch reported
Mosquito Control Director
Graves had informed him of
the need to purchase a
blower for the department's
caterpillar and Comm.
Branch requested this be
purchased on an emergency
basis. Upon motion by
Comm. Birmingham, second
by Comm. Traylor and un-
animous vote, the Board
approved this emergency
purchase.
Comm. Branch reported he
and Civil Defense Director
Wells were meeting with
Bobby Grice, of Department
of Transportation tomorrow,
at 2:00 p.m., in the Commis-.
sioner's Meeting Room con-
cerning the Transporation
Disadvantaged Plan.
Chairman Money reported
he and Comm. Traylor had
received requests for the
county to install culverts on
the Sunshine Road in Over-
street, Fl. The Board agreed
this is not a ocunty road,
therefore the County can't
install these culverts.
Chairman Money dis-
cussed a problem with High
School Crossings. Comm.
Birmingham reported he had
already taken care of this
matter.
Tommy Williams, of
Blountstown, and Jim Boze-
man, of Wewahitchka, re-
quested the Board intervene
and be part of, as Calhoun
County is, the Department of
Environmental Regulations'
April 17-19 hearing, in
Blountstown. concerning re-
moval of the Dead Lakes
Dam. The Board agreed for
Attorney Rish to contact
Calhoun County's Attorney
David House concerning this
and report back to the


Chairman. At the request of
Comm. Birmingham, the
Chairman will contact each
Commissioner in the event of,
a time frame where action

ing.

Boaters, "Get


New Signals"


Boaters are reminded that
visual distress signals ob-
tained in 1981 or earlier have
expired and must be re-
placed for this year's boating
season.
The federal law requiring
all pleasure boats 16 ft. and
over using coastal waters or
the Great Lakes to carry
approved pryotechnic sig-
nals, also provides those
signals must be replaced 42
months from the date of
manufacture.
,. The law calls-for every 16'
ft. and over boat to carry
approved day and night
visual distress signals. Boats
under 16 ft. are required to
carry approved night signals
between sunset and sunrise.
Following are the types of
signals approved for use by
the U. S. Coast Guard, which
is charged with enforcing the
law:
Day Only: Orange 50-
second smoke signals, (3
required), 3-ft. x 3-ft. flag,'
specially marked;
Day and Night: Red 6-
second meteor flare with
10,000 candlepower (3 re-
quired), Hand-held 2 minute
red flare with 500 candle-
power (3 required), Red
parachute flares (3 requir-
ed);
Night Only: Automatic
electric SOS light i
"In addition to compliance


with the law," states Mr.
.Chiolero, "These signals are
needed purely in the interest
of good boating safety. It only
makes sense that the easier it
is to see and find a boater in
an emergency, the faster
help will arrive," he points
out.
