Fall Back!
It's time to change your clock.
Saturday night, the rest of the world will move their
clocks, watches and assorted time-pieces back by an
hour to revert back to Standard Time. You are invited to
join the rest of the world in the new time frame. -
Officially, the time changes at 2:00 in the morning,
Sunday, but fudging is allowed: you can change your
timepiece any time you want to so long as you do it
Saturday night. Nobody will tell.
When you go to bed Saturday night, set your clock
back by an hour. In other.words, you will have an extra
hour Saturday to stay up or sleep. It's your choice.
The change from Daylight Savings Time to Standard
Time, is a gimmick to allow all of us to have a little more
daylight at the beginning of the day so kids won't be
having to go to school in the dark.'
Remember, it's "Fall back in the fall and spring
ahead in the spring".
-The new time -will hang around until the last
Saturday in April, when once-again we will all set our
clocks ahead and go back on Daylight Saving time.

The County Commission accepted the low
bid of Fairchild Construction Company of
Monticello to replace the ancient wooden
bridge across Wetappo Creek on Pleasant Rest
Cemetery Road.
The bridge, which has been in place for
longer than anyone can remember, was
condemned by the Department of Transporta-
tipn two years ago when they inspected all
bridges in the county. DOT recommended at
the time that traffic be limited across the old
bridge until it could be replaced.
Tuesday night, the Commission accepted
the $89,755 bid of Fairchild to replace the bridge
with used concrete spans salvaged from the
Choctawhatchee River Bridge three years ago
when that span was replaced with a new one.
Fairchild. has 150 calendar days to do, the job,
and is expected to get started within 30 days.
The county received four bids on the


project, with the next lowest bid being $123,000
from J. B. Hagler and Sons. The other two bids
were F&W Construction Company of Alabama,
$175,000 and H. G. Harders and Sons, $199,000.
Design engineer representatives wanted to
study the low bid for two weeks and make sure
it was a legitimate bid, but the Commission
wanted to get the project started. Chairman
Billy Branch noted, "We.bought these used'
bridge spans from Fiarchild. He built the
Choctawhatchee bridge and he's familiar with
the project we're undertaking. His bid should
be good'".
Attorney William J. Rish said if the bid
bonds were in order and the company was a
responsible firm, there was no reason to delay
letting the bid.
The only concel'n the County Commission
seems to have is that the project will be
finished within the time limits of the several


permits they must secure in order to construct
the bridge and easements they have for
detouring traffic. Pleasant Rest Cemetery road
will be closed while the bridge work goes on and
it concerns the Commission the road will be
closed during the height of the hunting season
when the road is used considerably by hunters,
COMPLAINS ABOUT DRAINAGE
Jean Arnold, a Beacon Hill realtor,
charged the County Commission with turning
drainage water into her property which lies
north of Beacon Hill, Tuesday night.
"You have a ditch on my property and the
drain water it is bringing in is destroying my
property and I can't afford it", she pointed out.
Commission chairman Billy Branch re-
plied, "I'm very familiar with the property you
are talking about and I'm telling you we don't

Gulf County


Schools Clean

No Drug Signs Found
IDrug-sniffing dogs were brought into Gulf County
high schools in a surprise move Thursday of last week
and resulted in another surprise for school officials and
Gulf County Sheriff's Department officials.
There were no signs of drugs found in the county
high schools.
Both Sheriff Al Harrison and School Superintendent
Walter Wilder emphasized there were no trace of drugs
found. "Area media have reported there were students
found with drugs, but that simply was noftrue", Sheriff
Harrison said.
Superintendent Wilder said the school management
is gratified there were no traces of drugs found in the
surprise search. "This office and the Sheriff set up the -
search and kept it a complete surprise to everyone",
Superintendent Walter Wilder said. He pointed out,
almost every other county in the state is operating a
similar search program to combat the presence of drugs
in high schools.
"We will probably do this more than once each
year", Wilder said. He pointed out the search was made
in a way to prevent embarrassment to anyone. "We are
using it as a tool to discourage drugs in our schools",
Wilder pointed out.
Wilder said he had made arrangements with the dog
owners in Tallahassee to bring the specially-trained
canines into Gulf Couty, where they were taken through

Wewahitchka Commission Will Review Chief Applications


The Wewahitchka City.
Commission will be meeting
in special session Tuesday
evening of next week to
review applications for a new
police chief for the City.
Wewahitchka has been


without a police chief since
August 29, when veteran Chef
Jonathan Glass was released
by the Commission for insub-
ordination.
According to Wewahitchka
City Clerk, Sharon Holmes,


the 'City has eight applica-
tions for the Police Cheif
position. "We may have
more by Tuesday since we
can receive applications until
7:30 p.m., October 26", she
said.
Mrs. Holmes said there


will be several other pieces of
business on the agenda next
Tuesday night, but the mat-
ter of the Police Chief will
head the docket.
The Commission released
Chief Glass because he re-
fused, on direct orders from


the Commission, to go to
school to maintain his status
as a state-approved law
enforcement officer. Florida
law requires enforcement
officers receive a certain
amount of training each year
to retain approved status.


Raffield's Loan Approved


Apalachee Planning Council received a
federal $1 million grant this week to be used as
a loan fund for providing money to enhance
expansion of business or industry which will
result in more jobs in APC's operational area,
it was announced this week.
The first beneficiary of that low-cost loan
fund will be Raffield Fisheries of Port St. Joe,
which was burned out a year ago in a $4 million
fire which gutted the physical plant of the huge
fisheries complex.
Raffield and its need was the impetus for
establishing the $1 million loan fund, which will
be used to finance other businesses which
suffer sudden and severe economic losses,
resulting in the loss of jobs.
Gene Raffield, manager of the Port St. Joe
fisheries operation said the loan fund will
enable his firm to build back larger than ever.
At the time of the fire last November, it was
estimated Raffield had some 150 employees.
Because of the fire, some of these employees
lost their jobs. "With this program to fall back


on, we can recover to a higher level than
anticipated", Raffield said. The firm expects to
expand its operation to the point of handling
over 30 million pounds of seafood a year and
employ up to 300 people.
State and county officials were instrumen-
tal in establishing the loan program through
the Economic Development Administration. A
local committee manages the loan money and
sets the interest rate for re-payment in each
individual case.
Charles Blume, executive director of the
regional planning council said, "We considered
it an emergency when it seemed like overnight
people-were out of a job. And that triggered it
(establishing the fund). The fund is more
geared for emergencies but it will go into a
revolving loan program as the money is paid
back", Blume said.
The Apalachee Regional Planning Council
will receive the $1 million this fall to deposit in
a fund that will be a continuous source for loan


money to small businesses, said Marsha
Harpool, regional planner for the council. The
money will be administered under the
Apalachee Regional Development Authority
composed of local bankers, officials and
operators of small businesses. The authority
will also review future loan applications.
The council will diaft checks to vendors
working on the Raffield project. As the
company repays the loan to the fund, it will
earn interest and build to provide other small
businesses with money for development and
-expansion, Harpool said.
So far, the authority has agreed to give
Raffield up to 14 years to pay back $1 million at
an interest rate two to four percentage points
below the market rate at the time the loan is
closed.
In the first year, Raffield will be required
to pay only the interest on the loan, after which
the company must begin paying on the
principal as well.


Swarm of Bees Stop Over

In Downtown On Stop Sign


A swarm of bees decided to stop and rest
for a while Monday afternoon in downtown
Port St. Joe.
The bees chose to do their stopping on a
"STOP" sign at the north end of Reid
Avenue, where it dead ends at First Street at
the St. Joe Paper Company office building.
The bees gathered up on the sign and
stayed there until a bee handler could be
contacted to come move the swarm to a hive
and move it out of the downtown area.
The bees had swarmed around a queen
bee on the sign and set up housekeeping,
even though the middle of the main street in
Port St. Joe isn't exactly conducive to


setting up housekeeping.
The swarm gathered on the sign in the
middle of the afternoon, and even though.
they were docile, the swarm understandably
had the area all to themselves for a while.
There were no volunteers willing to disturb
their attending the queen, until the bee man
arrived.
The bee handler, who asked to remain
un-named, said in the swarm situation, the
bees were harmless unless they were
excited.
Who knows what it takes to excite a bee
or when they are .reaching the excited
stage?

A column authored by William
V. Shannon in the Panama City
News Herald last week was head-
lined, "Reagan goofed".
The column was trying to
relegate President Reagan to the
position of a dunce, more or less,
for having the lack of diplomacy to
publicly score Egyptian President
Mubarak and Italian Prime Minis-
ter Craxi for their handling of the
events in which they were involved
concerning the piracy of the cruise
ship last week by Palestinian
terrorists.
President Reagan was des-
cribed as being "very angry" at
Prime Minister Craxi for sending
the leader of the terrorists into
Yugoslavia instead of holding him
for investigation.
The president was also de-
cribed as "lashing out" at Egyp-
tian President Mubarak for having
allowed the four members of the
Hijack team to leave his country on
a jet rather than hold them for trial
as pirates and hijackers.
E Not only was Shannonp miffed
al the President/s attitude toward
the situation, but President Muba-
rok and Prime Minister Cra~i were
also put out that President RFeagan
should take anything but an
approving attitude toward them
also.

Why Wail

"The story" this week, of
(purse, was about the "Forbes"
Ijmagazine interview of Alfred du
g nt Dent, who claimed he beliAey-.
his uncle, Alfred I du Pont, the
19nefactor of Port St. Joe, was
murdered by his wife, Jessie Ball
du Pont.
Of course, as the story points
out, Dent and the source of his
relief, the late Ed Ball's widow,
Iioth have an obsession with trying
to expend every effort to damage
Ball's name and reputation.
They have had a lot of help
over the years in this endeavor, but
somehow or other, Ball continued
to prosper, along with St. Joe
PIaper Company, and their chari-
ties, which are numerous, are still
iell funded while other foundations
and charities are foundering be-
cause of mis-management of their
funding source. ,
As the article points out, Dent


be Angry

ment: "We give these people (the
Egyptians) $2 billion a year, and
we expect better cooperation that
this."
What's the matter with that
statement or that thought? It's
candid, true; but, what's the
matter with being candid?
The writer of the column went
on to say, "It is truly astonishing
and incomprehensible that any
American administration would
recklessly endanger good relations
with Italy, one of 0ur best friends in
Europe, and with Egypt, our most
important ally in the Arab world,
and do this for no good reason
except that one more PLO agent
has slipped away".
These PLO agents "slipping
away" is one of the main reasons
terrorism continues against Amer-
ican citizens the world over.
We already have plenty of
"friends" who will not look out for
our interests over the world
without having to pay for new ones.
Toward the end of his article,
Shannon observes, "The hihacking
of .the TWA plane and of the
"Achille Lauro" each ended with
the loss of only one life ."
Evidently neither of the American
citizens killed in. both instances
were of no relation or acquaintance
of Mr. Shannon. So what did it
matter- to hirh that two more
Americans died at the hands of
outlaws .. which were allowed to
"slip away" by our "friends".



t Till Now?

could have been one of the richest
of the du Ponts if things had turned
out like Dent wanted them to.
Instead, the crippled children and-
some of the aging of Delaware and-"
Florida have a solid financial
future to finance treatment and
research into their ills and prob-
lems.
Today, Ball's widow is gravely
ill in a nursing home, too ill to
respond to new questions about the
old affair. Nobody explained in the
"Forbes" article, nor the news
stories over the week end why Dent
didn't express his doubts about the
way du Pont had died back when
Ball's former wife had told him of
her beliefs. Why wait until now
when she cannot corraborate what
she is reported to have told Dent?
Why is the death of du Pont
questioned only now when only
Dent is alive to substantiate or
deny?


Kesley Colbert's Country Column


Grandmothers Are Different!


By: THE POOR
SUBSTITUTE
Old Kes will be absent this
week. His grandmother died
over the week end and Kes
went to Tennessee in a hurry
Sunday to be with his mother
in her time of grief and to
attend the funeral, which was
held Tuesday.
Kes is like a lot of us. He
doesn't do anything until it
needs doing, so he hasn't
written a column ahead as a
cushion against unforseen
tragedies or events which
interrupt a schedule.
The Country Column will
be back next week with its
proper author.
In the meantime, I'd like to
fill in for Kes, writing a word
or two about grandmothers.
Really, Kes was lucky to
have had his grandmother
live so long into his life. Not
many of us do and while most
of us idolize mothers, grand-
mothers are a special lot,
who perform services not
even attempted, by anyone
else.
Grandmothers are unique,
necessary, different, and def-
itely available especially
for their grandchildren
I speak as somewhat of an
authority on grandmothers,
even though I had personal
contact with my last grand-
mother at the tender age of 12
years. I have not known the
direct ministrations or spe-
cial acts of activities which
some would term "spoiling
the child" since that time. I
have most of my experience
from living with a grandmo-
ther.
Here Kes has known and
probably received the special
grandmother-ly attention
from his grandmother all
these years (and Kes isn't as
young as he once was any
more).
One of my grandmothers
lived in northeast Texas on
the family cotton farm when
I was a young child and I only
saw her twice that 4 rem .
ber, in all my life.
I remember when I was
about six or seven, we went-
to visit grandmother and
grandfather on the farm in
Texas, when my uncle from
-north Arkansas came-
through our town in east
central Oklahoma, On his
school bus, on the way to
Texas to visit his parents and -
my grandparents. We all-
went along on that trip).
, I remepiber my grand-
mother didn't even have an
ice man out on the cotton
farm. Their ice box- or
refrigerator consisted on a
wooden frame covered by
hanging cloths which were
kept wet day and nightwifth
dripping water. The evapora-
tion. of the water kept; the
food in the "safe" cool and


usable.
Grandmother kept her
milk and eggs down in the
well out in the yard, where it
was kept cool.
The other grandmother
lived with us until I was 12
years old and we moved to
Florida.
The live-in grandmother
was, of course, more special
to. me than was the grand-
mother who lived on the
Texas cotton farm, because I
saw her every day.


It was this grandmother
who made us boys help with
the garden. It was this
grandmother who made us
take a coffee can and pick the
bugs off the potato bushes. It
was this grandmother who
made us pull weeds, hoe,
water, dig potatoes, pick
green beans, etc.
It was this grandmother
who showed us how to bury
pumpkins and onions in
cotton burs to preserve them.
It was this grandmother who


showed us how to spread the
potatoes out under the house
so they wouldn't rot before
they were eaten.
Of course, it was this
grandmother who made us
delicious pies from squash,
who took us to Sunday School
when Momma was too tied uip
with four little boys to look
after.
This grandmother sat be-
side the fire with Momma in
the late evenings and hand-
stitched on quilts for hours at


COLBERT
a time to keep us warm in the
cold Oklahoma winters.
The grandmother I live
with gives me the most
experience with grandmo-
thers and gives the duties of
being a grandmother the
modern touch.

There's A
IT WOULD BE ALMOST un-
American, this. week, to discuss
anything except the World Series. The
Series is in full swing now and is a
Happening every serious baseball fan
has waited on all year long.
Even the play-offs this year have
lieen games of particular interest and
real pitcher's duels. It's always been a
diystery to me how the pitching can
get so good at play-off and Series time
and be so unpredictable the rest of the
year. I guess there's just something
about having a $20,000 or $30,000 bonus
riding on the outcome of the play-offs
aznd the Series games which makes
each one a must-do situation with the
pitchers as well' as the fielders.
The names of the Series teams are
enough to stir excitement most of the
t1me. This particular year, one of the
expansion teams, the Royals, are
participating and it gives a new
mystique to a World Series to reveal
that one of the participants are the
Royals. Whatever happened to the
Giants? the Tigers? The Indians? the
Yankees? the A's? or the Orioles?
]%w, those are teams with real World
Series sounding names.
, Real baseball fans are familiar

with the name "Cardinals". The
"Cards." are one of your veteran
baseball teams who have been in and
out of the Series for a long time. One of
baseball's most famous players,


I watched most of the Brave

Even the World Series is subject

to get used to the 'new kid on the

lecting my favorite player for the
season and the Series. It has to be

for the season.


to be the same type player as Dale.

times, without showboating or calling

expecting to win. He never threw
temper tantrums when something
didn't go to his benefit and he didn't
mouth expletives and obscenities
when the camera would come in for a
close-up when he failed to hit or ori the
few times he failed to make a catch.
Some of the' players were abso-.
lutely embarrassing when the cameras
came in close.
Another of my favorite players,
and my favorite of the Series is Willie
McGee of the Cardinals. Willie seems


air doesn't turn blue, nor the cameras
blush when they get into lip-reading
range with Willie.
Willie doesn't win or compete
because of his looks, which is evident.
The -poor guy is ugly as home-made
sin, but he can play that baseball and
that's what they pay him for. He's a
gentleman while he is doing it.
OUR COUNTRY columnist, Kes-
ley Colbert is ecstatic over his
boyhood heroes, the Cardinals, being


a part of the Series. Kesley predicted,
like any good fan, that the Cardinals
would win the Series way back when
the season first started.,
Today, he is like a new daddy with
his first baby boy. The only difference
is that Kes is handing out a big chew of
Levi Garrett rather than a cigar, for
the accomplishments of his Cardinals.
I even had Oletha Bowers, a lady
up in Wewahitchka, tell me last week,
Kesley had given her a chew of Levi
Garrett, to celebrate his Cards ac-
complishments. Mrs. Bowers, a nice
lady, says she took the chew Kes of-
fered because she didn't have her
snuff with her at the time.
Really, I think old Kes and his
kin-folk up in McKenzie, Tennessee,
were St. Louis Browns fans. It's
just that when you leave the back-
woods of Tennessee and go to town,
one could hardly be for the Browns
and remain in polite society.
Of course, the Browns are no
longer in operation. The Browns'
biggest contribution was probably
their introduction of tobacco chewing
to baseball players. The reason for
bubble gum cards is that most


baseball players chewed bubble gum.
The Browns chewed "Brown's
Mule". They were named the Browns.
because of the color -of their teeth,
their beards, their baseballs, from the
pitcher loading up the ball in the day
of the spitball, and the color of their
batter's box, from all that Brown's
Mule expectoration.
Old Kes was wanting to trade off a
shotgun he won recently for a color TV
or two. You see, Kes is sort of on the
squeaky side when it comes to
spending money. Really, he is the only
peron in town with a DuMont black
ancrwhite set using a piece of tin-foil
wrapped around a clothes hanger for
an antenna.
When he found out the Cards were
in the Series, though, it. changed his
tune. Kes came in the other day and
said he was going to trade that
shot-gun for two color sets and an
antenna dish so he could watch the
Series in. real serious fashion.
So, if you want to see him this
week, you'll find him at home, curled
up in front of his new TV, with a new
package of Levi Garrett and a
styrofoam spit-cup, rooting for "old
Stan's team".

The new manager said it
still wasn't definite which of
,the candidates would be
attracted to Port St. Joe, but
that HCMC had high hopes of
attracting at least a portion
of .the physicians being re-'
cruited.
Odum said the owners of
the hospital have embarked
on a program of "giving the
hospital back to the people"
by enlarging on the services
offered here and equipping to
be of better 'use to the
medical community in Port
St. Joe.
Currently, the corporation
is installing a new X-ray unit
in the Flouroscopic depart-
ment, to enhance that portion
of the hospital service.
The administrator said the
corporation has made the
decision to offer' obstetrics
services out of the hospital
just as soon as a doctor to do
obstetrics can be attracted to
Port St. Joe. "Small hospi-
tals lose money and the
requirements are high for
OB,'but we feel' it will be
offering a service com-
munity desperately needs",
Odum said. "It's a part of our
program of giving the hospi-
tal back to the people..'
Odum said the hospital has
made overtures to the county
concerning housing the am-
biulance service at the hospi-
tal and -operating it from
-hoi se facilifis. Tru-'ambui-
lance services operates out of
inadequate quarters behind

If you receive Social Se-
curity checks, here's an
important reminder:
Promptly report any changes
that may affect your bene-
fits. In this way, you can
avoid an overpayment and a
possible penalty.
The most common cause of
overpayments is too much
earnings from working. Let
Social Security know if earn-
ings will exceed the annual
exempt amount- in 1985, it is
$5,400 if you are under 65, or
$7,320 if you are 65 to 70- or
if your earnings will be
higher than previously es-
timated.
You should report any
work activity, regardless of
earnings, if you get disability:
checks. However, there are
special rules that may help
you continue getting some
benefits temporarily if you
work while still disabled.
Following are some addition-
al events you may need to
report:
Change of address Report
even if you have- direct
deposit, as important written
notices are sent to you. from
time to time. ,
Medical improvement
Report this if you get disabi-
lity checks.


Marriage Report this if
you receive benefits as a
dependent or survivor.
Other benefits Report if
you receive or have applied
for another benefit (such as
workers' compensation, etc.)
If you are a representative
payee, you must report. any
of the above events on behalf
of the beneficiary. Also let
Social Security know if there
is any change in custody or if
the person dies. In addition,
you may be asked periodical-
ly to complete a representa-
tive payee report to show
how benefits have been used.
Most events can be report-
ed by phone. If you have any
questions about your report-
ing responsibilities, call any
Social Security office. The
people there will be glad to
help you.

Local Members Attend Fall Forum


Daughte


rs of Ame
Two of the members.. of the
St. Joseph Bay Chapter
Daughters of the American
Revolution were in attend-
ance at the recent Fall
Forum which was held in
Sarasota September 27 and
28: Mrs. Paul P. Kunel, Vice
Regent; and Mrs. Ralph
Swatts, Sr., Chairman of
American Indians. Also at-
tending this session was'Mr.
Kunel, to join the other
Hodars, husbands of the DAR
members.
Members attending this
session were deeply sadden-
ed by the recent death of
Florida's beloved State Re-
gent. Mrs. Robert Clark
Foster of Tallahassee, who
had visited this chapter in
1984 and was scheduled to
make a second visit in
September of 1985. The
chapter was planning a spe-
cial meeting for her at this
time. The Forum opened
with a beautiful memorial


rrican Revolution


prayer by the State Chaplain,
Mrs. DeKalb. Presiding over
the Forum was the, second
vice regent, Mrs. Drolsha-
gen.
It was reported that Mrs..
Foster's Tomassee project
had not been completed, and
members were urged to
make contributions to this
cause, and in her memory.
And the members were re-
minded that all contributions
to both state and national
projects must go through the
state treasurer if our state is
to receive recognition for
them.
Among other things, mem-
bers were told that the state
historian is now requesting
county histories as well as
local, and all chapters are
urged to make reports even if
they had not done anything
special. The chapters are
recognized for reporting, and
the state receives proper
credit. Members were also
reminded to use the proper
forms in 'making reports, if
credit is to be received, and
that it is extremely import-
ant that members famili-
arize themselves with both
chapter and state by-laws.
Members were also told
that the Florida DAR Fall
Forum had its beginning in


1972. No report was given as
to the attendance at this first
meeting, but the report given
in 1985 probably 'shows a.
great increase- '285 mem-
bers were in attendance at
this time, plus 17 Hodars
(husbands) and one guest,
bringing the totalto 303.
This year's Forum was
outstanding. The reports
were excellent and showed
great progress, and the two
members representing St.
Joseph Bay Chapter are
hoping that next year the
chapter will have a much
larger representation be-
cause it is a time of real
inspiration.

Report Soc. Security Changes


ly supplemental security in-
come (SSI) checks must tell
Social Security about any
changes in their situation
that could affect the amount
of their payments. Failure to
report such a change could
result in too much money
being paid (money that
would have to be repaid) or'
in missing out on money to
which the person may be
entitled.
Any change must be re-
ported within 10 days afar
the end of the month in whijh
the change occurs. Social
Security will take steps to
recover any money paid out
as -'a result of a person's I
failure to report a change.
The same holds true if a
person receives money to
which:he or she is not entitled
because of having made a
false statement. In addition,
a person who, without good
reason, reports a change late
may have to pay a penalty of
up to $100.
Social Security should also
be informed if an SSI
recipient is given money,
food, clothing, or free hous-
ing by any individual or

Sharks Defeat Blountstown Tigers


Port St. Joe's Sharks scor-
ed the first time they touched
the ball in the first quarter
and again in the second
quarter Friday night, to put
enough points on the score-
board to dump the high-scor-
ing Blountstown Tigers in the
Sharks homecoming celebra-
tion last Friday night.
The Tigers had been tear-
ing up the Panhandle with
their offense this season, but
the Shark defense put the
stopper on the Tiger jauger-
naut and uncorked a potent
offense of their own to hand-
the Tigers their second de-
feat of the season.
The Sharks had been hav-
iing trouble getting their
offense going in past games,
to match their highly potent
defense, but against the
Tigers Friday night, the
offense out-ran and out-
passed the productive Tiger
crew by 100 yards.
Even though the Sharks'
offense did their scoring last
Friday night, it was the
potent, defense which caused
the Tigers to cough up the








/9w


ball time after time with
recovered fumbles and inter-
cepted passes.
The first play of the game
saw the Tigers fumble the
ball on their own 40 yard line.
Arthur North covered the
loose ball on the Tiger 38. On
the first play from scrim-
mage, John Smith came up
with the ball and tossed it to
quarterback Robert Harris
at the two yard line where he
lunged across the goal line to
score the first touchdown of
the game with only 44
seconds gone off the clock.
A penalty on the first try
for the extra point and a
fumbled snap on the second
attempt forced the Sharks to
settle for a 6-0 lead.
The Sharks kept the pres-
sure on for the remainder of
the first period, with Doug
Robinson recovering a Leroy
Nealy fumble and Harris
picking off a Greg Jordan
pass. Randy Wilder covered
a second Tiger fumble at the
end of the period to start the
Sharks' second scoring drive
of the game.


touchdown and possibly sav-
ed the game for the Sharks.
Both teams threatened to
score in the second half, but
neither could overcome the
tough defense which seemed
to stop both teams in the
vicinity of the 25 yard line.
North recovered two of the
Tigers' four fumbles. Randy
,Wilder snapped up one and
Terry Farmer scooped up the
other.


The Shark offense had
Peters as the leading rusher
with 105 yards in 20 carries.
Harris and Doug Robinson
caught key passes, Harris a
scoring strike for 38 yards
and Robinson a 30 yard toss
from Harris.

Friday night, the Shark
Varsity will be idle, but the
Junior Varsity will take on

Northeast and Northwest re-
gions.

regional offices beginning
November 12. No applica-
tions will be accepted be-
tween October 25 and No-
vember 12.
"Beginning Tuesday, No-
vember 12, the Commission's
regional offices will begin
issuing permits for areas
which have not reached their
quotas by October 25," White
said. "The remaining per-
mits will be issued on a
first-come, first-served basis
to hunters who call, write or
walk into the regional of-
fices."

that rang out as the "Sharks"
and the Tigers battled it out

By The Rev. Jerry R. Huft
Rector, St. James'
Episcopal Church
A great theological ques-
tion that has been asked for
centuries is, "What happens
to a person when she-he
becomes a Christian?" By
"Christian" we mean one
who has experienced salva-
tion, been regenerated, born
again, or made an adult
commitment to Christ. In
other words, not a cultural


Christian, but a transformed
Christian.
The first thing is that such
a person is forgiven. The
second thing is that she-he is
justified. The third is that
this person is adopted as a
child of God.
These ancient biblical-
theological points constantly
need to be reinforced and
reinterpreted to each genera-
tion. Forgiveness means that
your sins are erased, much
like a teacher does when she

clears a problem from a
chalk board. Justification
means that God sees you
through the garment of right-
eousness, with which Christ
has clothed you. Divine adop-
tion means that we, as
renewed people, have finally
grasped the grace of God in
our forgiveness. And that we
understand that the right-
eousness which was always
beyond us now warmly pro-
tects us from God's indigna-
tion and wrath. Forgiveness
and justification make it
possible for us to settle down
and be comfortable with our
sisters and brothers in the
family of God.
But how do we do this? I
have known many people
who have certainly assented
to this concept- but have
never .felt the assurance, of
this truth in their hearts. I
like to ask people to read
Hebrews chapter eleven
when this question is asked.
It starts like this, ''To have
failh is to be sure of the
things we hope for, to be
certain of the things we
cannot see. It was by faith
that people of ancient times'
won God's approval."
Take out your Bible and
read the rest of the chapter.
You may be able to help
someone who is having a
hard time believing God's
promises.

Football, Fall and the "Fuel Charge"


S Autumn in Florida!

A time of year to look forward to... a time for "big games," tailgate parties
and cooler temperatures.

To a lot of us, it means less air conditioning... a chance to lower our electric bills.
To Florida Power, it's our chance to lower the "Fuel Charge"
p (what you pay us to pay for fuel).
Our economical combination of nuclear and coal-fired generation
has replaced much of the oil needed during the hot summer
months, so we're saving money. And when Florida Power
saves money on fuel, our customers save money,
Just like fall and football games...
the lower the cost of fuel,
the lower the "Fuel Charge."
They go hand-in-hand.

Unsafe Gun Handling



Can Ruin Day in Woods


The pleasures of enjoying
nature and the excitement of
bagging game can erupt in
tragedy when sportsmen fail
to practice safe gun handling
procedures.
According to the Game and
Fresh Water Fish Commis-
sion, 257,450 hunting licenses
were purchased by sports-
men in 1984-85. During this
period, hunting-related acci-
dents resulted in 10 deaths
and 33 injuries- roughly 1.7
accidents per 10,000 hunters.
"Hunting accidents do not
just happen," said Capt. Ed
Tyer, hunter education coor-
dinator at the Commission.
"They are caused by negli-
gence and disregard/ for
basic hunting safety .rules.
Most accidents can be pre-
vented if hunters use good.
common sense when hand-,
ling firearms and abide by
the "Ten Commandments of

Two New


Firearm Safety".
Sportsmen who practice
unsafe hunting habits are not
only a danger to themselves
but to other hunters as well.
The Commission urges each
hunter to become familiar
with the following "Ten
,Commandments of Firearm
Safety" to make outings as
safe as possible:
Treat every gun with the
respect due a loaded gun;
Watch the muzzle. Be able
to control the direction of the
"muzzle even if you should
stumble;
Be sure the barrel and
action are clear of obstruc-
tion and that you have only
ammunition of the proper
size for, the gun you are
carrying;
Be sure of your target
before you pull the trigger.
Know identifying features of

Aircraft


the game you hunt;
Unload guns when not in
use. Take down or have
actions open. Guns should be
carried in closed cases to the
shooting area;
Never point a gun at
anything you do not want to
shoot. Avoid all horseplay
with a firearm;
Never climb a fence or tree
or jump a ditch with a loaded
gun. Never pull a gun toward
you by the muzzle;
Never shoot a bullet at a
flat, hard surface or water.
At target practice be sure
your backstop is adequate;
Store guns and ammuni-
tion separately beyond the
reach of children and care-
less adults;
Avoid alcoholic beverages


and other mood altering -
drugs before and during
shooting.
In an effort to promote
hunter safety, the Commis-
sion conducts Hunter Educa-
tion courses for sportsmen of
all ages to teach safe hunting
habits, game management
principles and hunting eth-
ics. For more information
about these courses, call one
of the Commission's regional'
offices. Their toll-free tele-

BY JAMES W. 'TOLLIVER
District Manager
Panama City -.
Despite the widespread use,
of the Social Security number
for identification purposes,
there is no intention of
making it a national identifi-
er, as some have suggested.
Neither does its use outside
the Social Security program
represent a threat to the
confidentiality of Social Se-
curity records, as others
have speculated.
Use of the Social Security
number is largely a matter of
convenience in a society in
which just about everybody
has one. The main use for the
number is to record Social
Security covered earnings
and to control subsequent
benefit payments.
The Social Security Ad-
ministration has assigned
about 296 million 9-digit
numbers since 1936. Because
no restriction was placed on
the use of the number by
private organizations, it has
been adopted as a readily'
available identifier 'for a
broad spectrum of uses.
Many Federal .agencies
also use the number. The
food stamp and the aid to
families with dependent
children (AFDC) programs
require each member of the
family to have a Social
Security number. The Intern-
al Revenue Service man-
dates use of the number as
the individual taxpayer iden-
tification number for all tax
returns and for records of
income-producing activities,
such as bank accounts or
investments. The Depart-
ment of Defense uses the
Social Security number as
the identification number for
military personnel. The in-
formation in the Social Se-
curity record the number
identifies. is confidential.
