City Holds Off EEOC


Get Discrimination Charge


The City of Port St. Joe is back in the good
graces of the Equal Employment' Opportunity
Commission once more after satisfying James
Crown, EEOC investigator, Tuesday, that two
charges filed against the City were not backed qp
by fact. The Commission had to also agree to
make three changes in its method of hiring and
advancing employees in their hiring practices
rules and regulations.
A suit had been filed against the City by the
NAACP, charging unfair hiring -practices and
promotional procedures. The City was able to
document all instances of hiring and advance-
ment during the past. few years, which showed
the charges to be groundless. .
A second charge, which was not being
considered in Tuesday's investigation, had been
filed by Vickie Manning, claiming she had not
been hired from an application she made with
the City for office employment in 1984. The City
was able to prove there had been no vacancies
and no hiring in the office since 1982. Miss
Manning's suit was dropped Tuesday. .
Tuesday night, the Commission adopted a


three point change, suggested by Crown,
designed to remove any suspicion of unfair
hiring practices.
In order to get all charges dropped and to
protect it in the future, the adopted rules would
require that the City:
-Advertise .all future job vacancies in the
local newspaper for two weeks prior to the
closing of the vacancy announcement.
-Hire at least one full time black employee
inside the Municipal Building.
-Establish an affirmative action program
to be monitored within the provisions of the
Federal Revenue Sharing Act.
The first two points were adopted by the
Commission Tuesday. The third requirement
was already a. part of the City's hiring
procedure.
HANDICAPPED PROTECTED
Notification was received from the Depart-
ment of Community Affairs this past week,
revealing that it is not necessary for the City, to
specifically include the word "handicapped" .in


s Dropped
its Fair Housing Ordinance, to the list of people
protected under the Ordinance. The majority of
the Commission feels the Ordinance adequately
protects the rights of the handicapped because of
thc way the Ordinance is worded.
The state office advised the Commission that
recent guidelines adopted within the past four or
five months, would give the city more "points"
in applying for grants and state aid in the future,
if the handicapped are specifically named as
beneficiaries of the ordinance.
The Commission agreed Tuesday night to
contact DCA and ascertain if a letter of
explanation attached to the Ordinance would'be
sufficient to assure the state that the handicap-
ped are included in the language of the ordinance
which allows its protection to "all people".
Changing an Ordinance is time-consuming and
expensive and the Commission wants to avoid
having to do it if at all possible.
The Fair Housing Ordinance was adopted by
the Commission last year at the suggestion of the
Department of Community Affairs, to comply

Mrs. Robert C. Ridgley was taken by

noon to investigate for possible neck
injuries following a two car collision at
the railroad overpass on Highway 98.
SCrews of 'the state Department of
Transportation were re-surfacing the
approaches to the overpass and had
traffic blocked in one lane while the work
progressed. The Ridgley auto, a 1984
Cheyrolet, had stopped to await its turn
to cross the structure. Robert C. Ridgley
was driving the auto which was on the
north side of. the overpass, headed in a


southerly direction.
A 1977 Ford Thunderbird, driven by
Eric Freeman, approached the, parked
Ridgley vehicle from behind. Freeman
didn't realize the car in front of him was
stopped in time to aviod the collision and
struck the rear of the Chevrolett..
Mrs. Ridgley, a passenger in the'
parked vehicle, received neck injuries
and was treated and released Tuesday.
Lieutenant James Graves of the Port
St. Joe Police Department; said damages
in the crash were estimated at nearly
$3,000. The crash occurred at 12:10 p.m.

TRIM Notices Mailed;



Reflect Tentative Taxes
rare ~zuuUUUI l h


Herb Barge, postal worker, receives TRIM notices from Property Appraiser, Kesley Colbert.


Property Appraiser Kesley Col-
bert turned over 11,421 TRIM notices
to Herb Burge in the Port St. Joe
Post Office Monday, to be sent to
various property owners in Gulf
County, advising them of the pro-
posed impact tentative budgets
drawn by the taxing authorities in
the county will have on their real
estate holdings and improvements.
The County Commission is char-
ged by the State of Florida with
sending out the notices each year,
but in Gulf County, the Commission
utilizes the records of the Property
Appraiser and the Appraiser's office
staff to get the notices to the
property owners. Colbert, always
quick with a comment, said, "Our
*office is sending out the notices,
informing people of the proposed
taxes as levied by the various taxing
authorities in the county".
The TRIM notices do not reflect
a true picture of what tax levies will
be like when the final budget


decision is made oy me various
budget-making authorities in Sep-
tember. The notice gives the proper-
ty owner an idea of what taxes will
be. Local governments put a tax
levy in the notices which will usually
be the tax cap for the year. Under
state law, the budget 'authorities
cannot go beyond the tax figure
stated on the TRIM notice without a
lot of trouble and maneuvering. The
authorities can reduce the tax
figures shown on the notice with only
a simple vote of their particular
board.
The TRIM notice figure, then, is
usually top figure the budget might
be. Usually, it is a little less.
This year doesn't figure to be
much less, however. With federal
and state matching funds drying up
in every direction, local govern-
ments had to do a little fancy
footwork to keep all the programs
going with a diminishing income
from outside sources.
The TRIM notices list the taxing


rate of Gulf County, heS on o ,,
Board, the various Fire Districts,
the two taxing Municipalities, voter
approved debt payment and the
Water Management District.
Each of the taxing districts will
have a public hearing on its
particular budget and lists the time,
date and place of the various
hearings in the large column on the
notices. For instance, the County
will have its hearing on September
17, at 7:00 p.m. in the Courthouse.
In the meantime, property own-
ers have various sources of recourse
available to them if they feel the
notices do not reflect the proper
information concerning your pro-
perty, owners are urged to call the
Appraiser's office to get an obvious
mistake corrected. If there is a
question concerning the amount of
the tax bill, those wishing to file a
complaint have until September 12
to file their objections, otherwise
their objections cannot, under Flor-
ida law, be considered.

THURSDAY, AUG. 22, 1985


We're not surprised that a few
people from St. Joe Beach are
upset over the idea the Beaches
area may be subsidizing-for the
time being-the Highland View
water system operation. It is only
natural to object to others receiv-
ing what we have paid for:
Let it be understood, we don't
know whether or not the Highland
View system .is currently being
subsidized by the Beaches system
or not. If it is, we feel certain it will
be only a temporary thing. As a
matter of fact, in Tuesday's County
Commission meeting, Commis-
sioner Billy Branch, a, resident of
Highland View, stressed the point
that Highland View would repay
any money spent on getting its
system on line and operating
properly.
It was obvious the Highland
View system had problems, be-
cause of the situation the system
found itself in.
Before the people of St. Joe
Beach begin having any hard
feelings against the people of
Highland Viewlet it be understood
,that the Beaches would not now
have their water system if the
remainder of the county hadn't
"subsidized" the system to finance
.necessary surveys and engineer,
ing. If our memory serves us
correctly there was about $45,000 in
money which belonged to all of us
who pay taxes'in the county, spent
some' 12 to 15 years ago in taking
surveys of the Beaches, Oak Grove
and White City to install water

Wd' Think

We don't really see why the,
,oEpunty Commission even hesitated
over. .taking the free dirt ,which.

I-dredging last Tuesday, when the
. Corps of Engineers offered it. You
can't beat the price nor can you

.The county has scrounged for dirt
ever since we can remember, even
resorting -to digging ponds for
:-_ people at times, in order to get the
dirt which came out of the hole.
We can understand the chagrin
-of Commissioners Everett Owens
..and Doug Birmingham at past
indiscretions by the Corps of
Engineers in their dredging prac-
tices on the river. We can under-
stand their wanting to stop dredg-
ing on the river altogether, even
though we don't necessarily agree
With them.


systems.
That was a subsidy by. the
remainder of the county, including
Highland View.
In recent years, the county
again guaranteed payment for
feasibility studies, engineering,
searching for funds and getting
necessary permits to put a system
into the Beaches and Highland
View. This time, the system
worked and most of the money was
or will be paid back by the system.
The entire county guaranteed
payment of the preliminary funds
whether or not the system was put
in. That's subsidy, folks.
The City of Port St. Joe
subsidizes. both systems by main-
tIaining the water treatment plant,
staffed with state-licensed opera-
tors and assumes all the liabilities
With the permitting agencies to see
that both communities get approv-
ed drinking water. All the people of
the community have to do is keep
their bill paid and turn on the tap
when they want water. There is no
worry with meeting supervisory
agency guidelines. That's worth a
lot, and that's subsidy.
The county now has a call out
for bids to purchase a brand new
fire truck for the Beaches and we'll
guess the truck will cost a
minimum of $60,000. The entire
county will underwrite the cost of
that fire truck, at least for a while.
That's subsidy.
We could go on and on, but you
get the idea.


There to


About?

The fact remains, the Corps of
Engineers has the blessings.of the
.,state of Florida and the Depart-.
ment of Environmental Regulation
to dredge in the river. So, the Corps
is going to dredge, whether the
County Commission, individually
or as a group,'wants it done or not.
The dredging is going to result in
dirt, being piled up somewhere,
regardless of whether we all agree
with the spoil site or not. When it
comes to the- public good, our
personal "druthers" don't carry
much weight.
So, as long as we are going to
have the dredging; and as long as
we are going to have the spoil; why
not take advantage of the com-
modity which we need and has been
offered, free, by the Corps of
Engineers?
What's to think about?

Afterschool Day Care L TTERS

Made A Good Summer L


Dear Mr. Ramsey.
Being a working mother
with three elementary school
children, I found the begin-
ning of summer a depressing
thought. There were worries
of finding a reliable babysit-
ter, the financial burden and
a desire to have the children
enjoy their summer.
Yet along comes Mr. Ed-
win R. Ailes and his well


trained staff to relieve all our
fears. This summer my three
children attended the Gulf
County Afterschool Daycare
Program. I would not, nor
,possible could have had it
any other way.
Along with reasonable
rates my children enjoyed
one activity after another.
Every week they went on a
planned field trip to places


such as Gulf World, Cape San
Blas, and the Marianna
Caverns, to name a few.
Their days were filled with
a planned schedule of educa-
tional activities, and had
visits from the St. Joe
Gymnastics and ATA Karate
Center.
As summer neared end Mr.
Ailes added seven sessions of
computer class. The children

forty-five minutes in each
session.
I wish to express sincere
thanks to Mr. Ailes, the Gulf
County Guidance Clinice,
and all the excellent daycare
teachers, for making it pos-
sible for my children to have
a wonderful summer.
Sincerely,
Patti Holloway


Fear, Real

HOW IS IT POSSIBLE to find
anything in the nature of levity in the
serious airplane crashes we have had
around the world the past few weeks?'
The answer, of course, is that you
don't.
.. There's nothing more tragic and
"serious and gut-wrenching than the
-"death of hundreds of people in crashes
which occurred in Dallas, near Tokyo
Sand near the coast of England.
At least one of these crashes was
caused by sabotage, another by freak
weather and the other by a failure of
equipment, so far as preliminary
investigations have been able to,
- ascertain.
SWhatever the cause of the crash-
es, the people are just as dead as if the
-pilots of the three planes had
deliberately flown them into the
ground (or ocean).
Nothing funny about that. Nothing
= even comforting about that, There's
nothing but seriousness connected
I with the three crashes and other
similar tragic accidents which have
;filled up time and space in our news
Media recently.

SImagined, Isn't A Very Funny Experience for Anyone


Even though it has been proven
that going in the big birds with the fire
in their tail is the safest way to travel,
it shakes up the entire world when one
falls, while we ignore' the figures


the thousands of flights each and
every day which get from Point A to
Point B with little to no misphaps
other than the magazines on the plane
being several months old.

, and every day.
+ + + + +
EVEN IN TRAGEDY there is a
place for levity, though. If there
wasn't, we'd all go crazy over grief
when one of these tragedies strike.
The most humor can be found, of
course, in the imagination and the
fears in the minds of those who ride


curves. I rejected the logic that the
railroad was ridden hundreds of times
each and every day by thousands of
people and the train had never left the
track nor slung anyone out the side in


esley R. Ramsey


It isn't only with airplanes. People
imagine the worst things happening to
them in whatever activity they
happen to be involved in.
For instance, recently, when I
was in Disney World, foolishly riding
the Thunder Mountain Railroad with
my dare-devil grandchildren, I ima-
gined the train was going to fly off the
track or sling me out of my seat every
time we'd take one of those bull-whip


I~


the 17 years it has been in operation.
I know, I know: there's always a
first time.
That was what kept me gripping
the sides of the car until my knuckles
were white.

A LOT OF PEOPLE are anxious
about flying. I'm really not, even
though heights bother me to the point I


won't walk close to a multi-story
window to look out. I feel fine as long
as I can get sand in my shoes.
I remember one time I was flying
home from Atlanta after a trip up
there to see a doctor. We were coming
into Panama City after dark with a
rain squall depositing clouds all
around.
The passengers were coming in
blind. Maybe the pilot could see.
As you know, when you come into
Panama City, the plane usually comes
Sin over the bay and lands on the end of
an airstrip which juts out into the bay
and passengers don't usually see land
until the plane is touching down. To
the first timer into Panama City, a
passenger would swear the plane is
going to ditch.
This particular dark and cloudy
night we were coming in and even the
lights of the area were hidden by the
clouds. We were feeling our way down
and a lady sitting in front of me was
growing more apprehensive as the
minutes passed by. Suddenly, the pilot
cut the power and the plane dropped
out of the clouds. There on both sides


of us was dark sky and water. The
lady almost screamed when all of a
sudden, the plane's wheels touched
the runway.
That lady already had us in a
disaster before we hit the ground.
+ + + + +
THERE'S REALLY nothing fun-
ny about being scared, whether it's
being afraid to fly in an airplane or
being afraid of a small spider. Fear
isn't funny.
Not only is fear not funny, it
makes us do some foolish things at
times which makes us feel foolish for
a long time afterward as well.
When it comes to a fertile
imagination, mine is one of the least
fertile around.
But, when it comes to imagining
something bad which can happen, I'm
just as susceptible to fear of some-
thing I don't even know about as the
next fellow.
Right now, I have a fear the
Atlanta Braves are going to end up
next to last in the National League
West. and, if they're not careful,
they may end up last!

like for you to do this morn-

It was at this very point, at

MARGAIRETFARRIS


Retires from City

Margaret "Sissy" Farris ended a career.of 27 years
with the City of Port St. Joe Friday of last week. Mrs.
Farris says she will now spend her time just staying home
and maybe going fishing once or twice a week.
Mrs. Farris started work for the City back when the
City first moved into its new city hall on Fifth Street. Prior
to that time, the city hall was located in a wooden,
converted home at the corner of Highway 98 and First
Street, across from Sammy's Gulf Service.
All of Mrs. Farris' service wasn't spent with the City at
one time. She worked from 1952 to 1954, then left to have a
daughter born to her and husband, Gordon. She went to
work again in 1960 and stayed on the job until Friday of last
week.
During hertenure in office, retiring as administrative
secretary, Mrs. Farris has worked under the jurisdiction
of four Mayors and six city clerks. When she started work
there was one other clerk and Mrs. Farris to do all the city
book work by hand. The city office kept records for the
hospital, court docket, taxes, voter registration and
occupational licenses; all duties now removed from the
office. I
"Back then, we did everything by hand", she said.
Now, modern computers and five employees do the work of
keeping up with the city's clerical work.

tion by Comm. Owens, sec-
ond by Comm. Birmingham,
and unanimous vote, the

Simmons Bayou area.
Comm. Branch stated one of
the persons making this
request, Britt, Pickett, owns
a store in Simmons Bayou
and reported seeing a lot of
near accidents. The Sheriff
commented he had never ran
a study of this area, but as
far as accident rate there are
very few accidents in the
area, granted there is very
little traffic. The only recent
accident was directly contri-
buted to alcohol. Over all he
didn't think there is a big
traffic problem; however, if
there were several accidents
in the area he could see the
need to lower the speed limit.
No action taken.
The Board and the Sheriff
discussed continuing prob-
lems concerning an alley in
Oak Grove Board recently
closed on June 11th to motor
vehicle traffic during the
hours of 8:00 p.m. to 8:00

ministration. Comm. Branch
moved the Board request

er Reader Boyett install the
water line to Butler's Res-

mously.

Jamboree August 30


Football Team Is Practicing


Here it is nearly 100
degrees outside and the
hotter part of August, but it's
football time!
Proof that it is football
time is that the annual fall
football Jamboree will be
played Friday of next week
at Tommy Oliver Stadium in
Panama City.
Three weeks from tomor-
row night, the Sharks will be
tangling with the Wewa-
hitchka "Gators" in the


opening game of the season.
in Wewahitchka.
The Jamboree will get
underway at 8:00 p.m., EST
next Friday with the Sharks
meeting the Mosley Dolphins
in the first half of the game.
In the second half, it will be
the Bay High Tornadoes and
the Rutherford Rams taking
to the field for the night-cap.
Big Bay High is on the
Sharks regular season sche-
dule this coming season.


Athletic director and head said season football tickets
football coach Shaw Maddox will go on sale for the new


season next Wednesday, Au-
gust 28 from the High School


office. The group of season
tickets will sell for $15.00 this
year and entitle the holder to
see five games.
Maddox said some changes
are being made in the season
ticket seating this year, to
better protect the seating of
season ticket holders.


Wrong Driver Listed


In a story concerning a two
car collision in last week's
issue of The Star, the story
stated "a 1974 Mercury,
driven by Marie Tucker
Armstrong of Wewahitchka,
struck the rear-end of a 1981
Ford driven by Anthony
Lanier Williams of Apalachi-
cola".
. The story should have
read, "A 1981 Ford driven by


Anthony Lanier Williams of
Apalachicola, struck the
rear-end of a 1974 Mercury,
driven by Marie Tucker
Armstrong".
The Star regrets any in-
convenience caused by the
mistake, which was caused
by a mis-interpretation of
police accident report rec-
ords.


Select Shot Tourney


There will be a select shot
at St. Joseph's Bay Country
Club Sunday, September 1.
Sign up or call in between
noon and 1:25 p.m. on
Sunday. Teams will be drawn
"a i1:30 with tee off as soon as
-tams are drawn.


Entry fee is $10.00 which
includes cart.
There will be a fried
chicken dinner following the
tournament. Sign up for the
dinner in the dining room
right away.


Planning for the Friday night when
Shark linemen will have the opposition lying
on the ground, these offensive players
practice keeping their feet while pursuing


their objective in spite of obstacles spread
all over the ground. It takes practice, even
to do this properly.


Whoa there! A Shark
running back learns what it
feels like to have a lineman
reach out and grab him as
he is attempting to pick up
yardage on the ground. The
action was pictured Tues-
day afternoon as the state
champion Sharks started
some serious practice for
the new 1985 grid season.
-Star photos.


Shark linemen get in some practice in a realistic
situation, opening tip a hole for a running back to squirt


through. Meanwhile, the runner gets through the line of
scrimmage untouched.


A full football gear Isn't your usual uniform for
skipping rope, especially on a hot afternoon with the
temperatures flirting with the low nineties. These Shark
gridders are using the child's toy to improve their
nimbleness on foot.

Mankind Is


Caretaker of

The Land


THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla. THURSDAY, AUG. 22, 1985 PAGE NINE


So many people on, the
earth and man's growing
ability to make new sub-
stances and change the
chemical components of
other material is the reason
we are involved in environ-
mental issues, Richard Sub-
lett, director of the Panama
City office of the Department
of Environmental Protection
told the Rotary Club last
Thursday.
Sublett said that most
substances which pollute are
substances which didn't even
exist some 50 years ago. He
pointed out that concerns
over the environment have
been with man for centuries
and that although Mother
Nature is the biggest polluter
of all, most all of- the
so-called pollutants from Mo-
ther Nature are assimilated
back into the environment,
while many man-made sub-
stances are not.
The. speaker said the grow-
ing population in the world
i and their needs are the main
root of' harmful pollution
today. Sublett pointed out
that at the beginning of the
Civil War there : were 34
million people in. the United
States and by the end of the
war there were 36 million.
"So many people, the na-,
ture of people and increased
urban living of an industrial
society are building envir-
onmental problems every
year", Sublett said.
He pointed out that much of
the world is getting concern-
ed over the state of the
environment. "The environ-
ment has eroded the Parthe-
.non in Greece more in the


past 50 years than all the
previous years of history
did", the speaker pointed
out. "A few years ago, the
Environmental Protection
Agency printed a pamphlet
identifying 44,000 dangerous
compounds", Sublett said.
The speaker pointed out
that the problem was inter-
national. "Most all countries
are becoming concerned
over the,. health 'of the en-
vironmient to -the point of
attemptiifg to do something
about it", he said.. -
Sublett pointed out that the
1,000 people employed by
DER in Florida were not
environmentalists. "We are
charged with enforcing the
* laws and applying the regu-
lations to protect the environ-
ment which have teen ar-
rived at by others. We control
and we restrict the flexibility
of property owners and for
that task we earn the enmity
of many. I think, though, that
we are talking about the
survival of mankind when we
talk about environmental
protection". The speaker,
said, "Mankind is only the
caretaker of the land. It must'
last on into future genera-
tions andiwe're the stewards
who mut protect it in this.
generation."
CARD OF THANKS
We would like to extend our
sincere appreciation for the
many, acts of love and .
kindness expressed during
the recent loss of our Mother.
Your thoughtfulness will al-
ways be remembered.
The family of,

place and thoroughly water-
ed.
For best results, apply
- mulch at least two to four
inches deep over the whole
area; but avoid covering the
crowns of low-growing orna-
mental plants. Keeping the
layer deep enough to do the
job is important. This means
that more mulching should
be added to the older layer to
get the maximum benefit'of
mulching.
Many organic materials,
such as. straw, wood chips,
and sawdust are rich in
carbohydrates and low in
nitrogen. Usually you will
find it beneficial to add
nitrogen fertilizer to the
material before applying it
as a mulch. One to two cups
of fertilizer high in nitrogen
(ammonium nitrate, sodium
nitrate, or ammonium ni-
trate) for each bushel of
organic material will supply
the needed nitrogen.
When plastic fill or alumi-
num foil is used as a mulch, it
is essential that fertilizer, be
applied before placing the
mulch- material on the soil.
Broadcast and incorporate
into the top two to three
inches of soil a complete
fertilizer at the rate of 2 lbs.
per 100 sq. ft. of garden area.
The mulch materials reduce
the leaching of fertilizer from
the area where the roots will
develop, hence larger
amounts of fertilizer are not
required.

Mulching may be your
