Kate No Lady While


Visiting Gulf


She Hit A Solid Lick On Area "Between Apalach and Panama City


A hurricane, named "Kate"
brushed her right cheek against Port
St. Joe as the eye of the storm passed
over the Mexico Beach, Beacon Hill
and St. Joe Beach area, actually
causing some damage here.
It has since been determined that
the Port St. Joe and Gulf County area
is that "somewhere between Apala-
chicola and Panama City" the news
media kept referring to all day and
night Thursday.
The storm did a lot of damage in
this vicinity as its estimated 115 mile
per hour winds, hit the coast here
about 4:00 p.m., battering the county
as the eye approached and came
ashore around 5:30 p.m.
For the third time since Septem-
ber 1, the county had to repair
damage and dig out from under the
mountains of debris which a storm
whips upwhen it visits as close as
Kate did
Heavy winds battered Gulf Coun-
ty, and although not many buildings
were destroyed, few escaped damage
of some kind.,
Winds took their largest toll here
in Gulf County in ripping aluminum
awnings from downtown store build-
ings, awnings on homes and carports.
Plate glass windows in downtown Port
St. Joe were shattered in flying debris
and the power of 'the gusting winds,
which took the window panes'from at
least seven business houses.
Insurance adjusters say the dam-
age during this storm was consider-
ably higher than during Elena, mostly
because of heavy water damage.
Still, the winds were a decided
damage factor, also.
Trees fell by Ahe dozens all over


the county during Kate and were
mostly a trashy nuisance during
Elena, even though several fell and
one or two fell on top of buildings.
During Kate, at least 20 trees
were felled across Highway 71,
making the only relatively safe artery.
out of town impassable to anything


except four-wheel drive vehicles by
early afternoon Thursday. The winds
also toppled trees onto at least a dozen
homes or buildings here in Port St.
Joe.
The winds completely demolished
two airplane. hangars. The hangar at
Costin Airport near Jones Homestead
collapsed from the heavy wind,
damaging the airplane inside, owned,
byRaffield Fisheries. At FICO Farms
in the Overstreet area, a small hangar:
exploded when the winds got inside
and completely demolished the build-
ing without touching the airplane-
inside.
High winds ripped the roofs off the
Elementary School gymnasium; tore
part of the roof off Port St. Joe High
School; blew over light poles at the
baseball field, demolished' the bleach-
ers and blew down a portion of the
fence. At the football field, the press
box was blown from on top of the
grandstand to the ground below,
where it was crushed.
Many homes had roofs ripped off
or'damaged. Several downtown build-
ings had roofs taken off by the raging
winds--some of which had just been
repaired from hurricane Elena. .
WATERS SURGE
" . Prbbbly the mbst deastating"
damage from the storm was caused
by the surging waters from the GullPof:
Mexico and St. Joseph Bay.
The Cape San Bias area and
Simmons Bayou community were
especially hard hit by the rising
water. Both areas are low and were
heavily hit by the tides which carried.
a surge of some 12-14 feet above
regular high tide.
High water entered almost every
home and business which wasn't built
on stilts in the Indian Pass and Cape
San Bias area. The same thing


happened at Simmons Bayou, where
high water covered the highway,
entered homes and sent loose objects
careening everywhere.
In Port St. Joe, the riding water of
St. Joseph Bay covered Highway 98,
washing it out in at least three places
and getting into homes along Constitu-


tion Drive and Monument Avenue
from Ninth to 16th Street and around
the Sunset Circle area, where Patton's
Bayou backed up and overflowed.
The Patton Bayou stream even
covered Long Avenue a few inches
deep where the Bayou goes under the
street.
The First United Methodist
Church had an estimated eight inches
of water inside the complete building
of the church, bringing about a
monumental clean-up project.
* Water came. across .the highway
at Highland View, cutting the road in
two places and tossing heavy rocks
used as rip-rap along the shore, in
yards, in the middle of the highway
and in ditches.
Water entered nearly every busi-
ness and home within a block of
Highway 98 in Highland View.
The Highland View School had
about two feet of water inside at 'the
height of the storm and still. has' a.
thick, gooey coat of mud everywhere
inside.
COUNTY SUFFERS
Damage at White City and;
Wewahitchka, prime shelter areas for
'.Port St. Joe people, was also
--considerable from winds and some l'
rising water.
White City, particularly had con-
siderable roof and wind damage, just'.
as the coastal area did. Hammonds
Store building at White City was
probably the most damaged building,
having its roof-to blow off and cave in
during the fury of the storm.
Wewahitchka also had consider-
able roof damage, but no buildings
were completely destroyed. Rising
water entered a few waterfront honies
along streams which were affected by
the rising tides.


Both communities had accepted
.a number of Port St. Joe refugees and
continued to provide shelter facilities
in spite of the howling winds and
driving rains which were the source of
much of the damage.
; Reports are that the Beaches,
w;iere the eye of the storm hit and
which were expected to take a real
onslaught from the storm, fared very


well. A few homes have lost shingles
and some aluminum roofing has been
blown loose, but there was no heavy
damage from falling trees and
collapsed buildings like was reported
.in Port St. Joe.
Butler's Restaurant, which could
probably be identified with being at
the beach, was totally demolished by
the storm, which cut out the road, ate

Coast Loses Power for 45 Hours


This was a familiar sight
throughout the county.


The embankment protecting the bridge over Patton's Bayou on Highway 98
near the Hospital was washed away by the rising waters of St. Joseph's Bay.


Electricity went off dur-
ing the afternoon, Thursday,
at 3:08 p.m. Florida Power'
manager, Mike McDonald
said he couldn't understand
such sudden and complete
failure, since the City has
feeder lines coming into the
City from three directions
and three different sources.
"Any one of these sources is
enough to supply the area's
needs", McDonald said.

Two Accidents Death Is Ruled Self-inflicted
Involve 4 Cars


Two accidents during the
week end resulted in damage
to four automobiles, but no
injuries.
Friday of last week, Mary
Allen Davis was turning off
Highway 71 into the Court-
house parking lot when her
1977 Thunderbird was hit in
the side by a 1972 Dodge
driven by Mary Watson.
Monday afternoon, a 1985
Mercury Station Wagon dri-
ven by Jane Allen and a 1978
Mercury, driven by Maggie
Bell, collided at the Long
Avenue and Fifth Street
intersection.
According to investigating
officers, Mrs. Allen attempt-
ed to turn from the outside
lane, and turned into the path
of the Bell vehicle.
Both accidents were inves-
tigated by the Port St. Joe
Police Department.


Mrs. Mary Pollock died a
sudden death from what has
been determined as a self-
inflicted gunshot wound Sun-
day afternoon.
According to information
from the Gulf County Sher-
iff's Department, Mrs. Pol-
lock was apparently des-
pondent over some medical
problems she had been hav-
ing for the past several
months.
Mrs. Pollock drove her car
near the south end of Garri-
son Avenue just south of
Ward Ridge, where she
parked beside the road, laid
the keys to her car in the
passenger seat next to her
purse, then left the car and
moved away from it by about
40 feet. She then apparently
sat down and shot herself
with a .22 caliber pistol.
A passing motorist came
upon the scene and reported


it to the Sheriff's Depart- and Deputy Bob Funderburk
ment. . investigated the tragedy and
Chief Deputy Mike White ruled on the cause of death.


Fire Guts Willie Quinn

.Home Friday Evening


Fire gutted the home of
Mr. and Mrs. Willie Quinn
Friday night just before
midnight.
According to Fire Chief
Mark ,Collier, the fire was
believed to be caused by a
candle left burning in the
rear of the home. The
resulting blaze completely
burned out the inside of the
newly-remodeled home at 222
Avenue B.
Collier said the Fire De-
partment was hampered by a
lack of communications
since the electricity was off


because of the hurricane
Thursday and because of
other communications. Col-
lier said, "Phone service
wasn't working just right
because of storm damage
and, our radio antenna was
down putting our radios out
of commission. Still, we were
there in just a few short
minutes after the alarm was
turned in". he said.
The home was burning
fiercely /when the Fire De-
partment arrived, but their
efforts kept the fire from
spreading.

School In Temporary Site


Due to severe storm damage at
Highland View Elementary School
students enrolled at that school will
not attend classes until Monday,
December 2. When classes resume
students will be attending on a
temporary basis at the Educational
Building of the First Baptist Church in
Port St. Joe. It is estimated classes
will temporarily be held at the First
Baptist Church for a period of one to
two weeks until emergency repairs
and clean-up can be accomplished at
the Highland View Elementary School
site.
Bus schedules for all students will
remain the same and a special
temporary bus route will be establish-
ed from Highland View Elementary
School to take students to the First
Baptist Church for classes. Both


morning and afternoon bus routes will
remain the same. Parents who bring
or pick up their children from school
should bring them directly to the First
Baptist Church building by turning
west on Third St., proceed to Baltzell
Avenue and turn north. The section of
Baltzell Aveaue adjacent to the First
Baptist Church will be blocked off to
prevent through automobile traffic.
The lunchroom at Highland View
Elementary School will continue to
operate and feed the students enrolled
in that school. The students will be
transported to the Highland View
School for lunch and will return for
afternoon classes at the First Baptist
Church. Students from Highland View
who normally walk to school should
continue reporting to the Highland
View site and they will be bused from


that site to the First Baptist Church.:
Transported beach students will con-:
tinue to ride in the same bus -to
Highland View where they will be
transported by special bus route to the
First Baptist Church. Highland View
students will be transported from the
First Baptist Church back to Highland
View School at the end of the school
day. The beginning time for Highland
View Elementary School will be
slightly altered and classes will begin
at 8:15 each morning. Dismissal time
will remain the same.
Any parent having questions about
the temporary arrangements for
Highland View Students should call
the Highland View Elementary School
at 227-1888 or the residence of
Principal Howard Blick at 229-8572.

During the storm recovery
period, one of the many people we
talked to remarked, "We have had
our Thanksgiving this week end.
We can all be thankful we came
through it with as little damage as
we had!"
That person may not have
realized it at the time he said it, but
that was a real piece of philosophy
there. From what we- observed
among the news personnel in Port
St. Joe covering the storm and
reporting on the damage, they

Inside the city, two buildings had

substantial 'water damage, but

tiirely short time.

Possibly the worst damage we
had in town, was from falling trees,
which fell across roofs, causing
damage to a few houses, but
generally just making a big mess to
have to be cleaned up.
The clean up will take time as
we learned from "Elena" back in
September.
This time the mess is worse, it
appears. The clean-up will take a
little longer, but we're all able to
get with the clean-up job.
Really, we here in Port St. Joe
and Gulf County will have two
Thanksgivings to celebrate this
year. We can have the Thanksgiv-
ing of coming through "Kate" as
well as we did and we can join with
the rest of the nation in celebrating
the Thanksgiving we will give
pause to observe Thursday of this
week. That's two Thanksgivings in
two weeks.
Despite two hurricanes and a
near miss in a period of less than
three months here in Gulf County,. -
it has been a pretty good year for
the great majority, of us. While we
gave a sigh of relief when "Kate"
finally blew herself out last Thurs-
day night, we ought to. pause
Thursday of this week and thank
God for the many blessings he has
sent our way and the ability to
weather such storms.

Kesley Colbert's Country Column


We're O.K., Mom


We Get 2 Chances



to Say Thanks


Thursday evening the wind
blew like nothing I'd ever
seen before.
My boys kept saying
"Come look, Daddy, it's
raining sideways." My wife
would join in frequently with
"Kes, there goes another
garbage can" or "Look at
that -it's a swimming
pool." She finally came back
to the bedroom, got down on
her hands and knees', peered
under the bed and said,
"Kes, you're going to fright-
en the boys if you don't come
out." Listen, I was quite
comfortable right where I
was. I had kind'a moved the
suitcases over a little and I
had a pillow over my head..
. . an old Johnny Cash song
kept coming to mind, "How
High's the Water, Momma".
She came back a little
later and said, "You need to
call your mother, she'll be
worried about you." As I
crawled out from under that


bed I thought of all the times
my Mother needlessly wor-
ried about her children -
this wasn't one of those
times. I finally got through
to her and was assuring her
that we had gotten out of
Port St. Joe and away from
the storm. While I was a'do-
ing that trees were being
blown down on both sides of
the house. Right before I

were safe, warm, snug and had plenty

his boys, who had been evacuated

all kinds of radios and "boom boxes"
with which we could keep up with the

asked him about something which had
happened during the storm. "How
could I?" I asked, "the power was
off!"
Stores selling necessary supplies
couldn't open up because they had no
power to operate their cash registers,
or turn on the lights in the store...or
keep their food freezers frozen.
Stations couldn't pump gas for
those who failed to fill up their tanks
before "Kate" got here. Luckily I had,
so I did have plenty of gasoline.
One little female lady teen-ager
remarked Saturday about noon when
the power started coming back on,
"Oh, goodie! At least we can operate
our hair dryers!"
Necessary tools like a hair dryer


went un-operated while the power was
out.
Some people had to take cold
water baths or none at all while the
power was out because there was none
to heat water with.

of those things we're going to take

have become a slave to a hot shower,

depend more and more on good strong
lights these days, and the electricity

Port St. Joe's Sharks will
be on the road to DeFuniak
Springs Friday night to take
the first step toward the State
Class 2-A championship for
the second year in a row.
The Sharks, defending
state champions, won the
chance t( try for a repeat
with a 26-13 defeat of Wakulla
two weeks ago, to edge the
War Vagles out of contention.
Tbh Sharks lost a squeaker
to the-Walton Braves about


mid-way of their regular
season, with the Braves
winning, 7-0 in a controver-
sial overtime period.
Since that game, the
Sharks have gone undefeat-
ed:
The Sharks only losses of
the season have been to
Monticello, Bay High and
Walton.
The Braves are 8-2 on the
season and feature a balanc-
ed'passing and running at-


tack.
Game time will be 8:30
p.m., Port St.' Joe time.
Tickets will be available until
12:30, Wednesday. Tickets
will also be available at the
game.

Hurricane Kate (Frm Page 1)


Monday.
The food distribution center,
manned by the Brotherhood of
Alabama, .distributed some 2,600
meals, all free, while they were here.
A church group also came in from
the Monticello area and made them-
selves available to remove fallen
trees and damaged buildings from the
property of those who were unable to
clear away the debris themselves.
Several work-for-hire groups
came into the city to clean trees,
make repairs and generally clean up
from the storm.
Building inspector, Dewayne
Manuel said many of them are
legitimate, but it would be the safe
thing for property owners to do, to call
his office in the Courthouse to ask
about any repair firm which is
unknown to the property owner.
A contingent of about 50 National
Guardsmen were called in to assist
the Civil Defense, Sheriff's Depart-
ment, City Police, Marine Patrol,
Game Commission and Highway


Patrol officers patrol the county and
protect property from looters.
Sheriff Al Harrison said there no
instances of attempted looting report-
ed to his office during the emer'now.
GOVERNOR VISITS
Florida Governor Bob Graham
and several state officials took an
inspection tour of Gulf County Friday
to see the damage first hand before
making an assessment on whether or
not Gulf Ciunty should receive
disaster aid from the federal govern-
ment. No decision has been made as
yet on the disaster aid designation,
but should be forthcoming within a
week or two.
If the disaster aid designation is
approved, the money would also be
available to the county for re-building
damaged or destroyed roads. The only
roads in the county which are the
responsibility of the state for repair-
ing, are Highways 71 and 98 and the
Overstreet Road.

Port St. Joe's street superinten-
dent. Martin Adkison, said there is at
least twice as much debris down from
Kate as there was from Elena.
"We have a job in front of us, what
with the normal heavy load which
winter brings, Christmas coming, and
all, it'll probably take us the rest of
the winter to get everything back to
normal again."
Adkison urged that anyone who
was able and had vehicles to remove
their own debris, to please do so.
"There's no telling when we can get
around to picking up all that has been
piled beside the road", Adkison said.
The Superintendent. said those
hauling off their own debris, should
take i.t to the old former landfill site on
Industrial Road just east of Basic,
Inc. "We'll have signs up, designating
the trash dumping site", Adkison
said.
The dump site is on the left, headed
east on the road, just before the new

a little airing out of his own,
completing five of five
passes for 167 yards and
three touchdown comple-
tions to lead the Sharks to a
33-21 victory over the Sneads
Pirates in Saturday night's
football action.
In the Sharks' final
regular season game, it was
obvious they had been able


to practice only once during
the week. The conditions
created by Kate were very
noticeable as the Sharks
seemed to lack their normal
intensity, especially the
defensive unit.
Sneads received the open-
ing kickoff and drove the ball/
the length of the field to draw
first blood, jumping out in
front of the Sharks, 7-0.
But, the Sharks bounced
right back taking their first
possession of the game and
marching 72 yards in 14
plays to knot the game at 7-7
with 11:34 left in the half.
Stan Peters bulled his way in
from the four yard line, and
Josh Jenkins added the extra
point. Robert Harris ran.for
a 22 yard gain,. Joe Norton
pulled down a 13 yard pass
from quarterback Harris,
and Stan Peters carried the
ball seven times for 19 yards,
to keep the scoring drive go-
ing.
On the Sharks next posses-
sion they put seven more on
the board as Doug Robinson
scored on a Robert Harris
pass in the end zone for a 10
yard scoring play. The' kick
for the extra point by Josh
Jenkins was good and with
6:24 left in the half, the
Sharks were on top 14-7.
But, once again the Pir-
ates came back to tie the
score with 2:59 left in the
half, 14 all. A roughing the
passer call and a third and
long play kept the Pirates'
drive going.
Two Robert Harris' passes
later the Sharks once again
were on top. With a second
and 13 situation from the
Shark 23 yard line, Joe Ray
pulled in a 22 yard pass
reception. Then Doug Robin-
son grabbed a 60 yard scor-
ing toss with 38 seconds left
in the half, giving the Sharks-
a 20-14 half-time lead.

St. Joe received the kickoff
in the second half and made
it look easy as they drove the
ball to their own 44 yard line..
With a first and 10 from
there, Josh Jenkins grabbed
a Robert Harris pass and
raced 56 yards down the side
line giving the Sharks a 26-14
lead with 5:30 remaining in
the third quarter.
The Shark defense came
alive at that point in theball
game seeming to have the
Pirates' numbers. Midway
through the fourth quarter a
Shark fumble on the Sneads
46 yard line gave the Pirates
another scoring opportunity.
With a first and 10 on the
Shark 44 yard line, a Pirate
pass play took advantage of
a St. Joe defender slipping
to the ground to give Sneads
a forty-four yard touchdown
toss. The extra point was
good and the Pirates had
pulled to within five points of
the Sharks, 26-21 with 4:05
left in the game.
Sneads went for the on-,
sides kick and recovered the
ball on the Shark 45 yard
line. The Shark defense sud-
denly came alive as the
threat of falling behind
seemed to be a real possi-
bility. On Sneads' first play,
Doug Robinson penetrated
into the backfield of the
Pirates knocking loose an at-
tempted pass, and "BoBo"
Arthur North grabbed the
ball and returned it all the
way to the Sneads' 21 yard
line before being tackled.
With a first and ten Stan
Peters took a Harris' hand-
off 21 yards to put the game
on ice, 33-21, with 3:10 left to
play.
Doug Robinson led all
receivers with two recep-
tions, both for touchdowns.
-Josh Jenkins had one recep-
tion for a score, as Robert
Harris was perfect in the
passing department going
five for five.


A lot of Gators show up around a FAMU runner being tackled by Al Colvin. Other Gators
were Rusty Wood, 52, Mike Harrison, 71, and Brian Laurimore, 65.


Stan Peters got the
rushing honors once again as
he carried 12 times for 71
yards. Harris followed with
five carries for 46 yards, and
Jenkins and Randy Wilder
rounded out the rushing stats
with 38 and 14 yards respec-
tively.
. Defensively Curtis Ray,
had 12 tackles, followed by
Arthur North with 11 tackles
and one interception, Doug
Robinson and Josh Jenkins,
each with nine tackles, Ter-
rance Farmer with eight,
and Randy Wilder and Stan
Peters with seven tackles
each.

Pruning and Moving to Shelter Will Give Your Plants A Good Chance to Survive


warmer sections of Florida.
Late summer or early fall
pruning should be avoided.
Pruning alters the plants
hormonal balance resulting
in a flush of growth which is
very susceptible to cold
injury.
Healthy plants are more
resistant to cold than plants
weakened by disease, insect,


or nematode damage. Rou-
tine inspection for pests and
implementation of necessary
control measures may deter-
mine the fate of a plant
during a freeze.
Tender plants in containers
can be protected from freeze
damage by putting them in a
garage or on a porch. If it is
not possible to move them


indoors, protect root systems
by pushing the containers
together and apply a mulch
over the containers.
Windbreaks can minimize
cold injury by reducing wind
speed and conserving heat in
an area. Evergreen plants
make excellent windbreaks
which can be effectively
placed so that an area stays


warmer than it would if it
were in the open.
Covering materials such as
cloth, polyethylene plastic
and paper can be used to
reduce frost injury. Covers
that extend to the ground and
are not in contact with plant
foliage can lessen cold injury
by reducing radiant heat loss
from the plant and the
ground. Foliage in contact


with the cover is often
injured because of heat
transfer from the foliage to
the colder cover. A light bulb
under a cover is a simple
method of providing heat to
ornamental plants when the
temperature drops below
freezing. It is necessary to
remove plastic covers during
a sunny day to prevent heat
damage to the plant.
Sprinkler systems have
also been used for cold
protection. A constant flow of
water over the plant may be
of value, however, if the
supply of it is stopped or is
not supplied fast enough, ice
can build up to the point
where its weight breaks the
branches of the plant. Sprink-
ling must begin as freezing
temperatures are reached


and continue until thawing is
complete. This method is
usually not suitable for
homeowners, since large
quantities of water are need'
ed and most irrigation sys-
tems are inadequate.
To summarize, a good
healthy plant is the best
insurance against cold dam-
age. A healthy plant means a
proper fertilization and wa-
tering program are used. Use
windbreakers or protective.
covering for the entire plant
or at least tor the main stem
when a cold snap is anticipa-:
ted. If all fails and the plant
freezes, replace it with a
more cold tolerant species or
grow that favorite ornamen-"
tal as a pot plant which can
be moved indoors those few
cold days we have in Florida.

of assistance may be availab-
le and under what condi-
tions."
The servicing alternatives
available to eligible borrow-
ers include a deferral of a
portion of payments for five
years, reamortizing pay-
ments over a longer period of
time, restructuring the debt,
or subordinating FmHA's
lien position on security to
another lender.
The regulations spell out
how FmHA determines eligi-
bility for various loan servic-
ing alternatives and under
what circumstances FmHA
would propose to take steps
to resolve delinquency or
other problems.
Borrowers' appeal rights
are detailed as well as
FmHA's agreement to con-
tinue the release of sales
proceeds until final loan,
servicing has been deter-
mined.
"The new procedures were
developed to give FmHA
borrowers with delinquent
and problem loans clear,
consistent and predictable
guidelines on how their ac-
counts will be serviced by the
Agency," Cherry said.

The combined average

The market-based rate is

return on Treasury five-year
securities during the pre-
vious six months. All bonds
must be held at least five
years from their date of issue

Doe Deer

Fair Game for Hunters Nov. 30, Dec. 1


Florida sportsmen are authorized to
take anterless deer (except spotted
fawns) on November 30 and December 1
this year. Anterless deer permits are not
required during this period.
Although deer hunting generally is
limited to taking bucks which have one or
more antlers at least one inch long,
wildlife biologists have determined that
taking a limited number of does is. a
useful tool for managing the species and
maintaining, healthy deer herds.
The daily bag limit during antlerless
deer season is two, no more than one of
which may be an antlerless deer.
Antlerless deer hunting is not permit-
ted during this period in the portion of the
eastern Everglades south of the Tamia-
mi Trail (U.S. 41) lying east of the
Everglades National Park and in Collier


County south of State Road 84 and on
Type I and II wildlife management
areas. Sportsmen may contact the
Commission's regional offices or state
headquarters for details.
Phase 2 of Dove Season Ends
The Game and Fresh Water Fish
Commission reminds hunters that the
second phase of dove hunting season
which began on Nov. 16 will end at sunset
Dec. 1.
Beginning Dec. 14, the third and final
phase of dove season will begin and run
through Jan. 13.
During the second and third phases of
dove punting season, sportsmen may
take mourning doves and white-winged
doves from one-half hour before sunrise
to sunset.

How Much Per Pound Are You Paying for Your Cuts of Meats?


If you are paying an extra and un-
necessary 50* or more per pound on
your steaks, roasts, cube steaks,
chops and poultry parts, then you are
probably spending an unnecessary
$15-$20 per week on your grocery bill.
If you aren't buying your meats at


Saveway, then you are probably doing
just that and not getting the most for
your money. Price and compare. Come
see for yourself. We're working hard to
save you money and we want to be
your favorite super market.

sent: Chairman Eldridge
Money, Commissioners

ers present were: Deputy

riff Al Harrison, Associate

son, Finance Officer Benny
Lister, and Civil Defense
Director Larry Wells.
The meeting came to order
at 7:00 p.m.

Wells opened the meeting
with prayer and led the
pledge of allegiance to the
flag.
After a question and ans-
wer session between the
public and the board over
public's concern of increased
cost of services, etc., with the
Board responding the major-
ity of the increase being

there is no way to project

venue received from sale of
items confiscated in illegal
drug operations) and, in
addition, he -checked with
Bay County and Calhoun
County Clerk who both agree
he is correct; however Gates
refuses to remove it from the
budget. Upon suggestion by
Commissioner Birmingham,
the Board agreed for Associ-
ate Attorney Gibson to verify
with the State Comptroller,
whether this item is to be
deleted from the county
budget or not and notify the
Clerk's Finance Officer to-
m.'orrow to make any neces-
sary change prior to newspa-
per publication of the budget.
The Board requested the
finance officer notify them if
the Clerk refuses to make
changes. Upon motion by
Commissioner Birmingham,
second by Commissioner

vote, the Board tentatively
.adopted the 1985-86 budget, a
23 percent increase including
changes (transfers, etc.) ap-
proved tonight.

cers present tonight (Tax

er and Sheriff) thanking
them for being present and

cers again requesting they
attend the final budget hear-
ing scheduled for September
30, 1985, at 7:00 p.m., EST.

ed Port St. Joe Ambulance

ed an increase in his budget;
however, he had told Miller-
gren it would not be possible
to increase his budget for the


1985-86 fiscal year. The
Board agreed.
