Land


Sale


Cut-Off Island, Tract On Brothers'

River Sold to Water Management Dist.


The largest single sale of a tract
of land in modern times was complet-
ed in Gulf County last week, convey-
ing a vast amount of land bordering
the Apalachicola and Brothers rivers
to a division of the State of Florida.
Southwest Forest Industries has
sold much of its wetlands along the
river to the Northwest Florida Water
Management District for an estimat-
ed $4 million. The land sale value was
computed by the number of documen-
tary stamps attached to the sale
document and does not reflect a true
picture of the transaction. .
The Water Management District
has purchased all of Cut-off Island
from its northern extremities near
Wewahitchka to the point where. the


Apalachicola and Chipola Rivers
converge together and all the water-
front land on Brickyard Cut-off and a
good portion of the waterfront land
fronting on the Brother's River.
The State of Florida purchased
much of the waterfront land. in the
same area from MK Ranches a couple
of years ago and have since come up
with a ruling there will be no more
permanent camps constructed on the
river bank. There is no indication as to
what position Northwest Florida
Water Management District will take
in this matter.
Southwest Forest Industries,
which operates a paper mill in
Panama City, acquired the property
some time ago when they purchased


the mill from International Paper
Company and have since acquired
other acreage from other sources.
The land in question was valued
some few years ago when hardwoods
were valued as a possible source of
paper pulp. Since the hardwoods have
fallen out of favor as a source of paper
pulp, the lands have been largely
unproductive for SFI. The particular
area of land included in the sale has
long been a prime hunting and fishing
area for the people of Gulf County.
According to the agreement sign-
ed by. both parties irt the sale, present
leases to hunting, camp sites- and
apiary leases will be honored by the
new owners.


License In Jeopardy


Raffield Sees Attempt to Take Fisheries License

As Move to Force His Commission Resignation


With the Department of
Natural Resources announc-
ing it will try to remove the
commercial fishing license of
Raffield Fisheries and the
Florida Conservation Assoc-
iation trying to force his
resignation from the presti-
gious Marine Fisheries Com-
mission, Gene Raffield, pres-
ident of the Fisheries and one
of seven members of the
-Commission, will go straight


to the man in charge today in
an attempt to save both his
license and his position.
Raffield is scheduled to
meet With Governor Bob ,
Graham in Tallahassee and
put the skids to a concentrat-'
ed effort by the conservation
group which he describes as
a group of sports fishermen
who catch fish and then turn
them loose. The FCA object-
ed to Ra ffields.iappointiment


Kids! It's Time to

Write Santa Claus
Get out those, pens, pencils and paper, kids. It's time
to write to Santa Claus. Since it's only two weeks until
Christmas, you .don't have much time remaining, to
compose a letter to Santa Claus and get it.written down
and ready to mail.
When your letter is written, either send it or bring it
to The Star office, so it can be printed in the Christmas
week issue of The Star before your letter is forwarded on
to Santa Claus at the North Pole.
Statistics show that kids who write their letter to
Santa and send it to The Star for including in the
Christmas week issue stand a better chance of getting
just what they want for Christmas.
The Star will receive the letters until Thursday,
December 19. Any letters received later than that date
don't leave us much time to get them set up into type and
forwarded on to Santa in time for him to get them before
Christmas. The Star wants to print every letter written,
so be sure to get in in our hands by Thursday, December
19.


to the Marine Fisheries Com-
mission 18 months ago and
have been working on him
ever since, along with the
other commercial fisherman
-on the Commission.
The FCA really got into
high gear some three weeks
ago when Raffield's son,
Randy Raffield, age 22 and
not a minor, caught about
4,000 illegal size redfish and
wa-.chargedby.the Florida
Marine Patrol with the viola-
tion.
In a hearing before Gulf
County Judge David Taunton
last week; Randy Raffield
was fined $619.50 for break-
ing the, two-month-old regu-
lation which Raffield said he
was unaware of.
With the Florida Conserva-
tion Association currently
after the resignation of Gene
Rafield and Fort Lauder-
dale fisherman William San-
defur from the Marine Fish-
eries Commission being
stepped up to a fever pitch,.
Raffield said he isn't going to'
resign.
"The manner in which the
Commission was appointed,
the Governor can't. fire me
and I'm not going to resign.
I'm meeting with the Gover-
nor Thursday to talk about
this matter and about what
*the Department of Natural
,'Resources is putting on us,"
Raffield said earlier this
week.


WANT FISHING LICENSE
REVOKED
Thursday of last week, the
Department of Natural. Re- -
sources got into the act by
starting action in an attempt
to remove the Raffield Fish-
eries license to operate a fish
handling operation, which
would put the local industry
out of business.
Raffield said the DNI.has
Never done this before,ana w
feels the threat ip more
pressure to make him resign
from the state Commission..
Duane Bradford,,a spokes- -
man for DNR has the power
to revoke the licenses when
conservation measures have
been violated, but they have
never used the penalty be-
fore.
Raffield, of course, says
his firm didn't break the law
when his son caught the
illegal redfish, "They were
illegal, and he admits he
caught them. But, he is an
independent contractor just
like any other boat captain
who sells his catch to Raf-
field Fisheries. If some other
fisherman had caught the
fish and sold his catch to
another firm, you would have-
seen a minimum fine or
probably a warning, since
the law was only two months
old and that would be the last
you ever heard of the matter.
Raffield Fisheries have not

Team HelpsIn Filing for Aid

Over 250 Were Expected to Seek Some Sort of Disaster Help


Residents of Gulf County flocked into the Port St.
Joe Fire Station on Monday through Wednesday of this
week to sign up for federal disaster assistance to pay the
expense of damages suffered from hurricane Kate which
slammed the coast of Gulf County threeweeks ago.
Records indicate there will be well over 250
applications for some level of federal aid before the
emergency office was closed yesterday afternoon, after
The Star went to press. The federal aid for disaster
assistance covered the gamut from out-right grants of
up to $5,000 per family to assistance through Small
Business Administration loans.
Guidelines for the SBA loan program under the
disaster program can be found on a separate article on


page three in this issue of The Star.
Nobody received any money or promise of money at
the application site this week.
The team, which came here representing the
Federal Government, took applications and heard:
applicants describe their damages and their financial
situations. No disaster aid is available for damages
covered by insurance.
In the photo above, the federal aid team works with
an applicant, getting information for her application to
be considered over the next few weeks. In the photo at
bottom are a portion of those waiting to be inter% iewed
by the disaster aid team. -Star photos


County Commission Retaliates Against Clerk Gates



Tuesday's Decision Would Change Quarter-Century-Old Method of Making Funds Available to Office


County Commission Chair-
man Billy Branch struck
back at Clerk of the Circuit
Court Jerry Gates Tuesday,
asking that the money bud-
geted for Gates' office- be
doled out in monthly or
quarterly payments, in the
same manner it is provided
to other county offices in the
future.
Branch charged that the
way the Clerk's office now
operates, it is working on an
"open account" and said the
Clerk over-spent his budget
by some $27,000 last year,
operating in this manner.
Gates countered by saying
all of his over budget expen-
ditures had been approved by
the County Board in session
and that the Clerk's office
had used the same budget
methods it had used for at
least 20 years.
Branch said he felt it would
give the Commission a better
handle on the county's money
if payments were made to the
Clerk's office as they were to
other offices in the court-
house.
Branch asked that the
statutes be searched for a


definition of the proper me-
thod of disbursing funds to
the Clerk's office and that
method be followed in the
future.
Nobody knew for sure if the
county was required to make
periodical payments to the
Clerk's office as it was to
other constitutional offices.
Last summer, Gates got
into trouble with the County
Commission and Sheriff Al
Harrison for refusing to
release funds which would
overspend the Fine and For-
feiture Fund budget. Gates
refused to release the money
because the Commission had
hired a full-time Civil De-
fense director in the middle
of the year and had not
amended the Fine and For-
feiture Fund budget to pay
his salary. This action over-
drew the budget and caused
Gates to withhold the funds.
Even though Gates was
subsequently ordered by
Judge R. N. Bower to release
the funds, he has still insisted
on amendments to budgets in,
order that un-budgeted
items could be financed.
Chairman Branch and the


remainder of the Commis-
sion feel they have charge
over the county's money and
are the ones to make the
decision about how it is
spent.
In a related action, Sheriff
Al Harrison won Commission
backing to require Gates to
create two new checking
accounts to keep special
funds coming to his office
from fines to be used for
special activities such as
providing classroom instruc-
tion to keep his Deputies
certified by the State of
Florida.
In the past, Clerk Gates
has kept the funds as items in
b.,e Fine and Forteiture Fund
budget.
DISASTER AID
Commissioner Doug Bir-
mingham was concerned be-
cause there were several
elderly people in the north
end of the county who had
received severe storm dam-
age from hurricane Kate and
were unable or had no
transportation to appear be-
fore the Federal Disaster aid
people here in Port St. Joe to
file claims.


"Can't we get the disaster .
aid people to go to Wewa-
hitchka for at least one
day?" he asked.
Civil Defense director,
Larry Wells said the manner
in which the requests are
handled makes it almost
impossible to send a person
to Wewahitchka or another
spot to take an application.
"A person may have to see
up to 10 people in making an
application. It would mean
moving the entire operation


to Wewahitchka rather than
'just sending one person' to
fill the need", he said.
Birmingham then asked
Wells to arrange for trans-
portation for those unable to
come to Port St. Joe on their
own and file the applications.
Wells said he could do that
and Sheriff Al Harrison said
his department would assist
in the operation.
SHOOT DOWN DOE DAY
The three deer hunters on
the County Commission were


upset over the Game Com-
mission's announcement of
another '"doe day" in Gulf
County for the current hunt-
ing season.
"Can we do anything about
it?" asked Commissioner
Birmingham.
The Board finally agreed
they couldn't stop the special
hunt, but they agreed to
officially register their dis-
pleasure by drawing up a
resolution going on record as
opposing the practice and


asking that it be discontinued
in Gulf County.
MEETING CANCELLED
A poll taken of the Com-
mission revealed that not a
one of them wished to meet
on Christmas eve, the date of
the next regular meeting of
the Board.
So, without a dissenting
vote heard in the hall, the
Commission decided to just
cancel the December 24
meeting of the Commission
and hope nothing or nobody is


inconvenienced by the move.
OTHER BUSINESS
In other items of business
to come before the Commis-
sion, they:
-Voted 4-1 to change road
requirements in tracts other
than subdivisions in the.
subdivision regulations.
Commissioner Birmingham
voted "no" to the change,.
saying he felt it was unfair
to the general public in Gulf

701 Face Purge from County's Voter List


There will be approximately 701 of Gulf
County's 7,000 registered voters lose their voting
privilege if they fail to return a card mailed
them last month by Elections Supervisor Cora
Sue Robinson, Mrs. Robinson said this week.
"We mailed out cards to 769 voters who had
been inactive over the past two years and only 68
have returned their cards stating, by doing so,
that they wish to remain active on the voting lists
of Gulf County". Mrs. Robinson told The Star.
State law requires a purging of the voting
lists in every odd-numbered year and provides a
formula for purging which allows the voter
himself to remove his name from the rolls.
Under state law. everyone whose name is on the


voting lists must vote at least once in two
elections, or they are to receive the card calling
for their re-registration. If the cardis returned to
the Elections Supervisor, the voter's name is left
on the list.-If the card is not returned, it is
removed.
Mrs. Robinson said she feels certain several
of the voters didn't receive the cards mailed to
them because of wrong addresses. "They have
listed their street address on their card, when
they get their mail in a Post Office box or they
have moved and failed to change their address
on our records", she said. "At any rate, if they
are not at the address listed on their voter
registration, they don't get the cards and may


not even know they face removal from the list".
Robinson said those who received the cards
had only 30 days in which to return them for
re-instatement. "The 30 day period has now
expired", she said. "If a person wishes to remain
on the voting list, they must now contact this
office or come in and have their names
re-instated. We're still going to make every
effort to contact every name on the purge list to
see if they wish their name removed", Robinson
said.
"We're going to attempt to publish the
names of those who face banishment from the
voting list", the elections officer said.


- I
















Department of Natural Re-
sources director, Dr. Elton Gissen-
daner may earn himself even more
enmity from the commercial fish-
ermen of the Panhandle for his
latest actions against one of their
own kind.
Dr. Gissendaner, who is just a
notch above the Devil in his
popularity with commercial fish-
ermen in Gulf and Franklin
counties, already, has evidently
approved action by his department
to call for lifting the operating
license of the Raffield Fisheries
complex as an aftermath of a
recent case in which Raffield's son,
Randy, caught over 4,000 redfish in
a net, which a new law had labeled
illegal just two months before.
The DNR and others seem to be
using 'the incident to take the
advantage of removing or having
Raffield removed from the power-
ful Marine Fisheries Commission.
Raffield and one other member are
commercial fishermen and the
sports fishing interests have op-
posed their appointment from the
beginning and are now beating the
drums to either have Raffield
resign or be tossed off the
Commission by Governor Bob
Graham.
Whether or not a person is a
sport or commercial fisherman,
they should fight with every ounce
of influence they have to keep


Think

Those who missed the sign-up
,days Monday, Tuesday and Wed-
:nesday for the federal funds
generated for this county by being
designated a disaster area, should-
n't get all up-tight about it.
You probably Wouldn't have
,your needs met anyhow.
The federal money was made
,available at attractive rates-we
,understand it will be loaned at
interest rates between four and
'eight percent-with one having to
,be a special case to get it.
No damage which was covered
,by an insurance policy was eligible
!!for the money. There had to be a
real instance of need to attract the
.,low-cost dollars.


Raffield on the Commission .
especially during this time of
special interest over the. caught
illegal redfish.
Raffield doesn't deny the fish
were of an illegal size.
Randall Raffield doesn't deny
he caught them. He does deny his
father or Raffield Fisheries had
anything to do with the catch other
than to purchase the catch for the
purpose of placing them on the
market.
Now, there seems to be some
taking advantage of a situation to
get what a certain group wants
done.
Tomorrow, however, the shoe
may be on the other foot. Somebody
connected with a sports fisherman
may get caught doing something
which is against state rules and
commercial people could call for
the resignation or firing of the
sports fishing representatives on
the Commission, citing the same
reasons for ridding the group of the
'undesirable" influence on the
MFC. Just raise a little fuss, leave
out some of the facts. when
explaining the "incriminating evi-
dence" and the sports are gone.
If Dr. Gissendaner becomes a
part of this obviously biased
movement, when it is his job to.
fairly apply the rules, then Dr.
Gissendaner should be the one who
is run out of office as not being fit to
serve.


Again

What we're trying -to say is
"There ain't no Santa Claus along
with this disaster area designa-
tion".
For those who can qualify for
the federal money, it will probably
be a god-send. As a matter of fact,
the money will probably be avail-
able only to those who could not get
aid in any other manner or from
any other source.
Very few will fall into- this
category. ? -' ,
So, before you begin lickihg
your chops over the almost gift
source of money to rebuild with;
before you think there is going to be
something for nothing;', think
again!

DNR Chief

Should Be the One Removed If...


I went last week to see a
moving picture show. It had
been a while since I'd been in
a movie theatre. Did you
know they've got cushions in:
the seats now? And the seat I
had rocked! Amazing! I
wish Mr. Claircluzzio could
see those seats. Mr. Clair-
cluzzio operated the Park
Theatre down on the square
when I was a'growing up.
After we got old enough to
wwalk to town, and if we had
our work done, Mother
would let us go to the moving
picture show on Saturday.
And let me tell you some-
thing you walk all the way
from our house to town -
well, you were wanting to
see a moving picture show.
A picture show at the old
Park Theatre cost fifteen
cents.. Qf course we didn't
Shave any cushioned seats.
We did have one row of seats
S.that rocked. It was the next
to the last row on the right.

Bobby Brewer and Jim Bob
Harris and some others had
pulled the nails up out of the
floor along that whole .row
and they'd kind'a rock it
back as they watched Lash
LaRue, Red Ryder or Rocky
Lane work on the bad guys.
The theatre was not
always a theatre. It was at
one time a potato house.
They used to grow a lot of
potatoes down at Gleason
and they'd gather up the
crops into the potato house
and from there ship them all
,over the area. I even unders-
tand that they used to ship
potatoes all the way to Mem-
phis. It was before my time
but it was said that the local
folks was doing real good
with spuds. Then 'the U-tote-
em and other large grocery
chains started shipping
potatoes in from some place
called Idaho and the next
thing we know, they're re-


modeling the potato house.
I saw my first John Wayne
movie at that old theatre.
And I met Tarzan of the Apes
there. And Roy, Hoppy,
Gene and myself spent hours
and hours together in that
old converted potato house.
It was there in 1962 I fell in
love with Hayley Mills wat-
ching a movie called
"Parent Trap". And who
could forget "High Noon"
and "Bad Day at Black
Rock". I tell you they were
all four star movies at the
old Park Theatre.

.Andy Rooney Wonders About Our Double Standard In School Business


ANDY ROONEY, the national
:-columnist and TV commentator on the
-news program, "60 Minutes" most
always comes up with a sensible,
-down-to-earth question or solution
:concerning everyday items we take
.for granted, but about which he has
.some questions to ask.
" Rooney has even gathered some
.of his off-the-wall questions into a
-couple of books--one of which I have'
sand read snatches from at times-
broadening his reputation as an
: author and dime store philosopher.
Rooney will wonder about such
:; things as why a shoestring waits until
.'you are running late some morning
Before it will break.. or why a brown
-cow eats green grass and gives white
- milk.., or why the yolk will break in
San egg you are frying, or other such
things which shape our day.
ROONEY CAME UP with a
column the other morning about why
Notre Dame is firing Gerry Faust as
its head football coach, but it never
fires teachers if their students fail to
. make a roaring success of their lives.


All of this came out on the same
day Bill McGrotha, sports editor of
the Tallahassee Democrat came out
with a column which indicted Semi-
nole coach Bobby Bowden to a future





ETAOIN




of uncertainty simply because the
teams he was coaching have lost five
games in a row to Florida.
Never mind that FSU has a better
won-loss record over. the years
Bowden has 'been coach than the
Gators have; never mind that the
Seminoles have whipped such teams
as Alabama, Nebraska, Auburn and
other powerhouses in the football
wgrld.


Here Bobby Bowden has done
more for FSU football than even the
Indian riding the pony before every
game and McGrotha is suggesting his
days at FSU may be numbered simply


SHRDLU

By: W(


Dame-as are the universities of
Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia and
-Penn State-is better known for its
football prowess than for its academic
achievements. He says, "Alabama


esley R. Ramsey


because his teams have lost five
games to Florida.

ANDY ROONEY puts this habit of
firing football coaches into the proper
perspective.
Simply stated, Rooney said Faust
was fired because Notre Dame didn't
win enough football games. Rooney
goes on to point out that Notre


might beat Columbia several hundred
to nothing on the football field, but it
seems likely the reverse would be true
in the classroom".
Admittedly, Rooney is classing
Alabama with some pretty heavy
competition in comparing it with
Columbia, but you get the comparison
he's trying to make.
Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia
and Penn State all have good


academic records, but their reputa-
tion for learning is nothing like their
reputation for playing football.
If I were an alumnus of either
school, I believe I would want the
opposite to be true. Schools are in
business primarily to teach, not play
football.
Before you get the wrong idea, I
like football and approve of it being a
part of the' school operation.
Even Rooney wasn't suggesting
football should be removed from
schools. Nor did I get the message he
was advocating colleges should quit
firing coaches if they don't perform.
The thing he was trying to get across
was all summed up in this statement,
"If colleges fired teachers the way
they fire football coaches, the acade-
mic ranks would be decimated. I
suspect there are quite a few
professors at Notre Dame who aren't
as good at their jobs as Gerry Faust
was at his".
The same could go for Bobby
Bowden. He has a winning record at
Florida State any college coach could


envy even Galen Hall.


WHILE ROONEY was aiming his
barbs at college coaches. and Mc-
Grotha was questioning the future of a
college coach, Rooney's reasoning
could very well fit high schools, too. If
teacliers were chased off their jobs
because their students' accomplish-
ments weren't number one in the state
or nation, we would have a turn-over
of teachers each and every year. "
As it is, we all get emotional about
our coach who, in our opinion, isn't
performing as we think he should an d
allow a sub-standard teacher to stay
year after year, unnoticed in a
position which is doing far more harm
to a youngster than a losing football
team.
Rooney observed that teachers-
good or bad-don't have to post a
won-lost record at the end of the year
for the alumni to see.
Of course, if he is a teacher worth
his or her salt-as I believe most
are-he will have his accomplish-
ments noticed just as surely if he had
posted the record.

Small Business

, Admin. Disaster

Loan Eligibility

TALLAHASSE, FL The ability to repay is the basic
eligibility requirement for all three types of small business
administration loans being offered victims of Hurricane
Kate.
Norman Davis, disaster branch manager/field opera-
tions for SBA,'said that this ability to repay is determined by
the tangible evidence provided by each applicant.
The three types of SBA disaster loans are physical
disaster loans to individuals to repair or replace damaged
real estate or to repair or replace personal property;
physical disaster loans to businesses to repair or replace
damaged real estate, business inventory, or other business
property; and economic injury disaster loans (EIDL) to small
businesses in the disaster area who have sustained economic
injury as a direct result of the disaster and who do not have
.credit available elsewhere..
Davis said that ability to repay can be verified by the ap-
.licant's records of past income. This can take the form of in-
-come tax returns; profit and loss statements; balance
sheets;; certificates of earnings provided by contractors or
employers; or similar tangible evidence. Other evidence re-
quired is proof of loss and proof of ownership such as deeds or
certificates of title. For renters a copy of a lease agreement
or rent receipts is required.
Davis said that inability to produce tangible proof of the
ability to repay loans, proof of loss, or proof of ownership
resulted in a high declination rate for applicants from Hur-
ricane Elena.
He also stressed that applicants must answer all the
questions on the application forms and that those forms must
be dated and signed by the applicant; including the spouse if
4it is a joint application.
The SBA loans are attractive because of low interest
rates offered to recipients. Applicants who have credit
available elsewhere pay 8 percent interest, while those who
do not have credit available elsewhere are eligible for 4 per-
cent interest rates.
The amounts of loans vary from case to case, but may
not exceed $100,000 for homeowners for real property loss
and $20,000 for personal property loss. Renters may also
qualify for a loan of $20,000 for personal property loss. For
physical damage business loans, the uninsured verified loss
loan cannot exceed $500,000.
The deadline for submission of completed applications is
February 3, 1986.
Davis urged applicants to expedite the filing of their
completed applications. Waiting until just prior to the
deadline will only unnecessarily delay processing of the loan,
Davis said.

Taunton said his troubles really
started when the state and federal
government began coming down hard
on foster home requirements after
nation-wide publicity over mistreat-
ment of children in some of the
operations throughout the nation.
"Most of our children are either
adopted by us or are related to one of
the other of our families and so'
wouldn't be subject to the rules",
Taunton said. "We have about three
children the act would affect", he
said.
Taunton said he would answer the

children and provide them with a real

rights of way and permits for
construction of the Pleasant

were nearly ironed out and
construction should get un-

ments, resulting from an

When asked if DNR direc-

supported the attempt to
remove the local fisheries'
license, Raffield said he
didn't know, but he would
hate to think the DNR could
consider such a serious move
without the director knowing
something about it.
Raffield said his conversa-
tion with Governor Graham
today will be aimed at
getting some of the wolves off
his back. "I feel the com-

voice on this Commission
just as the sports fishermen
need a voice on it. Records
show sports fishermen catch
80 percent of, the redfish in
the first place, and to use this
incident as a means of
getting rid of a point of view
on the Commission I think is
not only unfair, it's not good
for conservation."

The speaker said the type

HRS to be a substitute for
institutionalizing and move
the clients into a community

where they will receive more

The highlight of any Christmas parade is, of course, the
man "in the red suit". Here, Santa Claus is shown as he rides
in the fire engine at the rear of the annual Christmas parade
held last Saturday evening to usher in the Christmas season
in Port St. Joe. This year, for the first time, the parade was
held in the evening, and the brightly lit floats and cars added
to the festivity of the evening.

The Wewahitchka Gators
had a slow start with the
1985-86 basketball season, but
head coach Gary Speights
said this situation will
change as the season pro-
gresses. "We have some
good talent and experience
this year and some fine
young men who should begin
to show their potential before
the season is over".
Speights said he is "de-
pending on the play of men
like Isiah Jones, Roy Myers,
John Colvin, Eric Bidwell
and Dayton Lister, our big
men, to carry the load for the
Gagors. We have some
strength coming off the
bench, too, with Willie Jones,
Marcus Williams, Alphonso
Colvin, John Myers and
JKerry and Derry Hartley".
Speights said all but three
of his squad played football
this year, so the transition to
basketball has been a little
slow, getting used to the new
sport and getting in shape.
The Gators evidently are
i and rounding into shape, as
was Speights promised, because
photo they brought home their first
victory Tuesday night with a
74-64 win over Bristol Liberty
County.
'n. 2 The Gators had five men
scoring' in double figures

.Head.coach Jim Belin says
his new edition of the Sharks
lack experience, but should
provide some outstanding
basketball for the Port St.
Joe fans this year. "
Belin said the squad has
four starters off last year's
team returning,'with veter-
an regulars Doug Robinson,
Josh Jenkins and Dexter
Baxter back for the current
season. Robert Harris, a
substitute last year, is the
fourth returnee.
With Robinson, Jenkins
and Dexter all strong players
under the boards, Harris is
the quick man for the Sharks
who makes many things
happen on offense.
Belin said he is pleased
with the new men who have
joined the squad this year. So
far, the most pleasant sur-
prise has been young Curtis
Beard, who scored 20 points
against Bountstown Tuesday
night and has six against
Florida High.
Belin said Jason Hammac
and Michael Lewis also give
the Sharks some solid bench
strength along with Arthur
North, Charles Julius and
Robert Lowery.
As usual, the Sharks are a


good free throw scoring team
this year. Doug Robinson is
leading in this statistic, also,
o uming eight for eight
against Florida High and
missing only one against
Blountstown Tuesday night.
Robinson is also leading the
team in rebounds.
With solid Josh Jenkins;
and Dexter Baxter, who get
their points and get their
share of the rebounds, Belin
thinks the team has' a good
strong nucleus to build on
this year.
"I was a little dubious
about our bench strength this
year", Belin said, "but after
our first two' games I feel
much better about this part
of our game. Our men have
played well off the bench
these first two games. We
have a good deal of inexper-
ience this year, but we have
some solid veterans too, and
if we get leadership out of
them, we'll be in the thick of
things."
Belin said the team is
cooperating well with one
another and playing together
as a team. "They are an
unselfish bunch of young
men", Belin said, "and that's
what it takes to win the big
ones".

Christmas


Originated


In Germany


by Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Director
The tradition of decorating
a tree for Christmas origi-
nated in Germany several
hundred years ago and was
brought to this country by
German settlers during the
last Century. Today the
Christmas tree is one of the
most beautiful symbols of
Christmas and a great favor-
ite with .both adults and
children. To ensure its beau-
ty this Christmas, take extra
care in selecting, preparing
and decorating your tree.


CARTER
It is important to choose a
fresh tree and to keep it as
fresh as possible so that your
tree will last through the
holiday season. Select a tree

touch. Bounce the butt of the
tree on the ground to see if
any needles drop. If more
than a few needles drop the.
tree is not fresh. The sap on
the tree stump should be.
sticky and moist, not hard or
caked. Also choose a. tree
with an attractive color and a
full, bushy appearance. Most
people prefer a conical,
symmetrical shape to their
tree. The branches should be
sturdy enough to hold orna-
ments and other decorations
such as small gifts.
An alternative to the cut
tree is the native red cedar
that can be obtained at
nurseries and tree farms.
After the holiday season is
over, the containerized cedar
can be planted in your yard.
Your tree should be stood
up in a large bucket of water
in a shady and cool place as
soon as you bring it home. If


the tree must lean against a
wall, make sure that you turn
it daily to avoid disrupting
the shape of the tree.
Before you move the tree
indoors, make a fresh cut at
the base at least one inch
above the original cut. The
tree stand should be filled
with water daily since a tree
can absorb up to a quart of
water a day. A floral preser-
vative such as those used for
flower arrangements can
help keep the tree fresh.
Make sure your tree is not
located near a fireplace,
television set' candles or
, other source of heat. Place
your tree away from house
hold traffic patterns so that
there will be no possibility of
the tree being knocked over
accidentally.
When decorating your tree
make sure all lighting equip'
ment is in good condition

MICHELIN


Winter
Electricity has made home
heating simple. But certain
precautions should be taken
to make sure your home
stays warm and safe -
efficiently this winter.
If you have a central
heating system, keep your
thermostat at the lowest
comfortable temperature.
For every degree you reduce
the temperature for the
season, you will save three to
five percent on your heating
bill.
Lower your thermostat at
night or when no one is home.
By reducing the temperature
10 degrees for eight to 10
hours each night, you can
save 10 to 20 percent on your
heating cost for the season.
(A special set-back thermo-
stat is recommended for heat
pump heating systems.)
Keep your fan switch in the
"auto" position. If the fan is
left in the "on" position, your
heating system can add $15
or more a month to heating
costs.
Replace heating system
filters monthly. Dirty filters
greatly increase heating
costs. It's also a good idea to
inspect the duct system
periodically for leaks and
have the heating system
checked by a professional.
Portable heaters direct
heat precisely where you
want it, permitting a lower
central thermostat setting
and increased energy sav-
ings. Follow these guidelines
for safe operation of portable
heaters:
Make sure your heater
bears the safety approved
Underwriters' Laboratories
seal.
Keep the heater at least
three feet from drapes and
furniture, and out of reach of
children or pets.
Never use portable heaters
in damp areas and make sure
you are perfectly dry and
wearing shoes when in con-
tact with them.
Don't place electrical
cords under rugs, in door


Heating
jambs, or under table legs
where the wire insulation
may be damaged.
Make sure the heater
doesn't touch pipes, radia-
tors, faucets or other metal

Shooting

Gaining ]
The success, of the U.S.
Olympic Shooting Team dur-
ing the 1984 Olympics in-
creased interest among
young people in shooting
sports. As a result, guns have
become a popular Christmas
item.
The National Rifle Associa-
tion strongly encourages par-
ents intending to introduce
their youngsters to recrea-

safety tips on Christmas
Day.
Contact your local gun club.
or the National Rifle Associa-
tion and make arrangements
for your youngster to attend
a basic gun safety handling
course as soon after Christ-
mas day as possible.
Include a variety of safety
brochures and books along
with the new gun and,
together with your young-
ster, carefully read through
the information.
Set aside time to discuss
safety and responsible gun
ownership. Clearly define the
conditions under which the
gun may be handled and


System

Disconnect the heater by

fired.
Refrain from buying BBs
or other ammunition until
your youngster has attended
a basic firearm safety
course.
After the gun has been
unwrapped and whenever
you handle it, always: keep
the muzzle pointed in a safe
direction, keep your finger
off the trigger, keep the
action open and unloaded,
and treat every gun as if it is
loaded.
Training programs, bro-
chures, books and the par-
ents personal involvement
are all effective ways of
educating the junior shooter
on the importance of hand-
ling his or her newest Christ-

and Wakulla Counties and an oil
spill would be disastrous for
many environmental and com-
mercial reasons.
At that time, I joined with
other members of the Florida
Congressional Delegation and
the Governor to protest this
action and we were successful
in Congress in getting the
Department to fully reconsider
its proposals.
The Secretary of the Interior
has now announced the final
areas that will be auctioned off
for oil leases on December 18.
I am very pleased that the
interior Department listened to
my concerns and removed all
areas close to the coastline in
the Second Congressional Dis-
trict. Not only did we get the
buffer zone I requested, but I'
was able to persuade the


Department of the need to
protect the seagrass beds of
environmental importance.
Two areas, however, are
seriously affected by this deci-
sion. The Florida Middleground,
with its coral beds, is protected
but areas around it will be open
for drilling. This area is not near
the shoreline in Florida and I
believe that, with the proper
protections, drilling may be
acceptable although I would
have preferred no drilling.
Additionally, areas off the
Gulf coast of south Florida are
pretty much wide open for oil
exploration. I intend to work
with Members of Congress
representing those areas in an
effort to insure protection for
Florida's coast. This, however,
was the final decision of the
Interior Department and options
may be limited.
Florida has an obligation to
assist in our nation's effort for
energy independence. We can
meet our obligations and still
protect our environment and
commercial interests if all
parties work closely together
and this is my aim for the
months and years to come.

drug smugglers gained access
to top secret government radio
frequencies and may have been
listening in to sensitive com-
munications from the Pentagon
and perhaps the White House.
There is no firm evidence as to
how long they monitored these
frequencies.
It would be good to report
that the FBI and CIA discovered
this breach of security but that
is not the case. Drug agents
seized the information in a raid.
This is but the latest in a
growing list of laxes in security
by federal government agencies
and both the House of
Representatives and Senate are
conducting investigations. The
American people have been led
to believe that we have some of
the strongest security measures
in the world and that the CIA,
FBI and other agencies are
capable of providing the intelli-
gence necessary for our
national defense. CIA Director
William Casey, in particular, has
been cited for evidence that the
CIA is not living up to its
mission.
There are no easy answers
but I am convinced, that con-
gressional oversight must be
stepped up to make the agen-
cies responsive for their jobs.

Please Help Me!! I am a
young lovable dog that was
roaming the highway look-
ing for love in all the wrong
places and never had known
a day of kindness when pick-
ed up by a caring couple that
are not allowed pets in their
apartment.
My mother (a loose lady)
and I were thrown out at the
garbage dump. I was at my
wit's end when they came
along. I thought I had died.
Sand gone to heaven. They
have fed, bathed, and loved
me. They will be happy to
pay for necessary shots and
surgery that will prevent a
similar fate to any offspring
that I might have. I am
"hownish" looking (not too
bad). I will repay your kind-
ness with love and loyalty for
a long time to come. Call
Amy or Jim, 648-4818. If no
answer PLEASE call back.
Thanks & Merry Christmas

Trapping

Season

Is Open
Florida trappers are au-
thorized to take 'bobcats,
minks and otters from Dec.. 1
through March 1 the state's
annual furbearer season.
Everglades mink, however,
are protected and may not be
taken at any time.
. Although some furbearing
animals, such as .raccoons,
Lbpssumns,-' skunks,-,nutrias
and beavers may be taken
year-round, the best quality
pelts are taken during the
cooler months, according to
wildlife biologist Tommy
Goodwin of the Game and
Fresh Water Fish Comnmis-
sion.
He said a regular hunting
license does not authorize the
taking of furbearers for sale,
nor does it authorize the use
of traps or snares. In addi-
tion, the use or possession of
steel or leg-hold traps is
strictly prohibited in Florida,
as is the use of set guns. Live
traps and snares must be
checked at least every 24
hours.
"To take furbearing ani-
mals for commercial pur-
poses with guns, live traps or
snares, a license to take
furbearers is required,"
Goodwin said. "The licenses
are available from county
tax collectors and their sub-
agents."

for Filing

Affected communities in
Georgia and southwestern
Florida have 30 days to
request assistance from the
Corps of Engineers for repair
of damaged flood control
projects and federally autho-
rized and constructe';dhurri-
cane and coastal protection
projects.
The Mobile District, U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers,
announced the 30-day sub-
mittal deadline following the
passage of Hurricane Kate
across the Florida panhandle
and through Georgia.
Officials emphasized that
assistance is limited to fede-
rally authorized and funded
hurricane and shore protec-
tion projects, and projects
specifically designed for
flood control such as dams
and levees.
Requests should be submit-
ted by letter specifying the

be white-winged doves. Also,
the' field possession limit is
equal to two days' bag limit.
It is not legal to take doves in
baited areas.
The bag. limit for ducks is
. based on a point system.
'pucks, according to species,
are assigned values of 20-100
points. Once a hunter takes
enough ducks to equal or
exceed 100 points, he 'will
have reached his daily bag
limit. Details are available
from the Game and Fresh
Water Fish Commission's
regional offices or 'state
headquarters. The free pub-
lication, "Migratory Game

I made a mistake in last
week's column concerning
the basketball game against
Bay High. The game was
cancelled and will be resche-
duled at a later date.
The basketball season
bounced off to a great
beginning when the
"Sharks" traveled to Talla-
hassee last Friday to play in
their first game of the year.
The "Sharks" came out on
top 63-52. That's the way to do
it guys!
The "Sharks" will show us
some more of their great
moved this Friday night
when they will play against
Malone. The game will take
place at our high school gym
beginning at 7:00 p.m.
Everyone go to the games
and cheer on your team to
state.
The game on December 17
against the Rutherford Rams
will take place at Rutherford
High School. The game be-
gins at 6:30 p.m. Go get 'em
guys!
Every six weeks a gold
card is issued to students who
make the A and B honor roll.
These gold cards are a way of
saying that the students'
academic work is being
recognized to its height. The
cards will get a student into
all school functions free and
a special discount is offered
from various stores; Way to
go, mates.
All seniors wishing to go to
"Grad Nite" in April must
.pay their first $5.00 down
payment to either Mrs. Turn-
er or any Senior Executive
Board officer by Wednesday,
December 18.
See ya.
See ya.
