DISASTER


Gulf Receives Designation

As Public Disaster Area;

Eligible for Federal Aid


It's been a month now, since hurricane
Kate slammed into the Gulf Coast just west of
SPort St. Joe and brought devastation and
- mostly debris to the entire county.
Clean-up of the mess left by the fall storm
has been underway ever since and is still
going on throughout not only the city of Port
St. Joe, but the entire region..

The Star Will Be

Early Next Week
. The Star will be printed and come to you early next
week, the publishers said this week.
With Christmas falling on Wednesday-ordinarily
the main production and distribution day for the
paper-The Star will be printed on Monday of next week
and will be placed in the Post Office on Monday evening
for distribution Tuesday.
The early publication day enables the staff at The
Star to take a few days off; something they cannot
normally do and maintain the regular publication date
week after week.
Monday's edition of The Star will contain all
Christmas greeting advertising and all letters written to
Santa Claus by county children..
The newspaper will resume normal publication
schedules on the following week, although working
around the New Year holiday will necessitate some
shifting of deadlines.


parently it had to do with the
illegal redfish incident.
The younger Raffield, who
sells his catch to Raffield
Fisheries, caught some 70,-
000 pounds of illegal size
redfish just a little over two
months after a statute had
been approved which pro-
hibited more than one redfish
over 32 inches in length in' a
catch. Randy Raffield had
some 4,000 redfish which
were more than 32 inches
long and was,fined in County
Court for the action. Raffield
said he didn't know about the
restrictive law at the time.
Raffield says the matter
would.have been given only
scant attention by authorities
if he had not been a member
of the Florida Marine Fisher-
ies Commission, charged
with finding means to protect:
Florida's fishing industry.
Raffield says he is the target
of people who want him off
the committee.

Gulf County was one of four Panhandle
counties placed in the new designation as
being eligible for public disaster assistance
Friday of last week.
Officials of the county, cities in the
county and other public entities gathered in
Apalachicola Tuesday to be presented with
guidelines on securing federal aid to pay for
Repairs and clean-up from Hurricane Kate,
which hit the Panhandle about eight miles
west of Port St. Joe a week prior to
Thanksgiving.
'Gulf was already included in a group of
three counties which had individual assist-
ance available but only received the
designation for public assistance last
Friday. Included with Gulf in the new
designation were Franklin, Wakulla, Liber-
ty and Leon cotil'ie. Other designations
were Gadsden, to receive public assistance
only and Calhoun and Jefferson which will
receive individual assistance only,
Larry Wells, Civil Defense director,
said Gulf County officials were briefed
Tuesday on how to fill out forms for the,
federal aid.
The aid will be made available to local
governments and non-profit services to
cover costs of necessary debris removal,
road repair, sanitary services repair and
protective services. Wells said the debris
removal to be funded can be that which
endangers the public from a health
standpoint or interferes with public ser-
vices.
Wells said representatives of Federal

Emergency Management Agency will be in
the Gulf-Franklin county area possibly late
this week to begin the job of assessing
damages and the cost of repair.
"It means the county, the cities and
others will have to keep some very complete
records in'order to recover any of the cost df
storm damage repair or clean-up", Wells
said. "Much of the work has already beei
.done, and it remains to be seen whether or
not the record keeping is acceptable to the
FEMA officials."
Like the individual assistance, public
assistance is available only for damage not
covered by insurance or where insurance
coverage was inadequate. The assistance
will be available on a 75-25 percent basisT
Assitance will be available for 75 percent of
damage expense and the public fund isi
responsible for 25 percent of the expense.

In the meantime, the local assistance

scheduled to be open only through last:

Even after the office is closed, Gulf
County residents may initiate a request for
assistance by contacting the Department of
Health and Rehabilitative Services office at
224-A Reid Avenue in Port St. Joe or call
1-639-5598.


City Eligible forn -


Disaster Money


Clerk Alden Farris advised the City
Commission Tuesday night the city is
eligible for federal assistance for disaster
recovery from hurricane Kate. "We're
eligible for receiving funds, but I'm real
dubious about how much we can finally
receive because of the nature of the
guidelines for making application", he'told
the Board. Farris said intricate record-
keeping is mandatory for receiving, any
federal aid and nearly three weeks have
already, gpne by before the guidelines were
made known. "We have already had some
'pretty hefty..expenditures", Farris said
after the meeting. "I'm not sure if we'll be
able to recover any of that money or not".
In reporting to the Commission, Farris
made the suggestion that all city employees
be given a $50.00 bonus for work in storm
clean-up and superintendents receive a
bonus, of $100.00. The bonuses were in
addition to the overtime pay they had
already received for their long hours of
restoring services.
Farris' recommendation was approved
by a 3-1 vote with Commissioner Peters
voting against the measure. Commissioner
Alton Fennell was absent for Tuesday's
meeting.
Peters had more to say about pay before
the night was over.
First, he stated the city was discrimin-
ating against the Police Department by not
giving them holiday pay.
S Mayor Frank Pate said he had received
no complaints from any policeman in this
matter in nearly 20 years in which he had
been Mayor. Chief Bob Maige said none of
his men had complained to him and
Commissioners Billy Fleming and J. B.
Roberts also said they had not been
approached on holiday pay.
Clerk Farris said the members of the
Police Department had been paid holiday
pay as per city policy.
Peters Still insisted there were Patrol-
men who didn't get paid for Thanksgiving,
but refused to give a name.
Commissioner Billy Fleming said he


intended to investigate peters' charges and
told the Commission, "I'll be looking at you
if I find out your charges are not true".
Roberts asked Peters if he had discussed the
matter with Clerk Farris before bringing it
up before the Commission, but Peters didn't
answer.
Another pay dispute brought up by
Peters was his objections to paying city
employees who didn't work on the day of',
hurricane Kate and the manner in which the
pay was approved.
Mayor Pate again defended the city
action by saying, "I feel we owed it to them.
It wasn't their fault they couldn't work and
since they don't earn the highest salary
around, I feel we should have paid them .Ag-
we did".
Peters then asked by what authority the
payments were made since it hadn't been
brought up in a meeting.
Clerk Alden Farris said, "I called
Commissioners Alton Fennel, Bill Fleming
Benny Roberts and Mayor Pate before
making the payments and they all approv-
ed".
"Why didn't you call me?" Peters
asked.
"I tried, but you told me later you were
in Washington, D.C." Farris said.
"Oh, that's right, I was", Peters said.
CONSIDERING MANAGEMENT
Mayor Pate told the Commission the
Tripart committee was looking favorably at
investigating the possibility of hiring a
management firm to operate the Wastewa-
ter Treatment Plant. "There are several
firms getting into that business, now, and
the committee wants to look into the
possibility of hiring managers for our
plant", Pate said.
The Tripart committee is made up of
representatives of St. Joe Paper Company,
Sylvachem and the City of Port St. Joe.
Commissioner Fleming, the City's
representative on the committee, told the
Commission Tuesday he was unable .to

Christmas Will


Comments


THE STAR
THURSDAY, DEC. 19, 1985 PAGE TWO


Christmas here in Port St. Joe
should be an especially meaningful
time of the year for us this year. We
have all become accustomed to
giving, helping," doing for others
and offering what aid or assist-
ance we can to our neighbors,
friends, acquaintances and stran-
gers. The attitude toward others
should spill over into the holidays
and make our Christmas this year
one of giving rather than one of
receiving.
Three visits from damaging
hurricanes in the Gulf County area
during the past three months has
caused us to learn to assist others
in need and share what we have
with others who have had their
.belongings and basic needs de-
stroyed or damaged by the storms.
We have learned to recognize the
needs of others without having to
have the needs brought specifically
.to our attention or hear a need
proclaimed by some church or
agency.
The hurricanes prompted


groups of young able-bodied men to
clear the yards of the elderly and
the widowed, the handicapped and
the disabled. Without the asking,
these young people have pitched in
and performed tasks for--people
they could not do themselves.
It took the three hurricane
visits to do it, but we have been
taught here in our county of the
blessedness of giving, which is also
the true spirit of Christmas.
With this introduction to help-
ing others, forced on us by Mother.
Nature, we are now ready to
observe the Christmas season in
the manner in which it should be
observed.
Somehow, we feel this Christ-
mas will mean more to many of us
than it has ever meant before.
For this reason, we feel the
damage we suffered from these
recent storms can't be considered
all bad. There's more than a little
bit of profit we have received from
our misfortune, also.


Kesley Colbert's Country Column



Gary Moore Had


the Wrong Panel


I guess I went a little crazy
last week or else I got caught'
up completely in this Christ-
mas thing. I bought a new
T.V. set. Now, there wasn't
really that much wrong with
our old set; afterall, it was
only 11 years old. And most
of the time when you turned
it on-you'd get a picture. Of
course we didn't have a
volume knob that had dis.,
appeared long ago. And the
old set had been struck by
lightning twice and the pic-
ture had kind'a squashed
toward the middle so we had
about an inch of blackness on
both sides it made every-
body tall and skinny. It still
had color though our two
colors were red and green.
Everything had to be either
red or green. But it was a
pretty red. Some of the kids
would come over to the


house to watch a football
game and they'd sit there
politely for a while and then
finally someone would clear
his throat and say "Coach, I
think the Dolphins have blue
uniforms." And another one
would add "I bet those poor
folks in Miami are not pre-
pared for all the snow
they're having."
I bit the bullet, paid the
nice fella in the store .over
$300.00 and eased that T.V.
back to the house when I
knew no one would be home.
Boy howdy, was.I going to
surprise my family on
Christmas morning! I hid
the T.V. in my clock shed out
back. The boys know not to
go into the clock shed. To be
doubly safe, I laid a blanket
and some old newspapers
over the box. Then I locked
the clock shed.


That evening I sat down on
my back porch so I could
kind'a keep on eye on the
clock shed and I got to think-
ing about the first T.V. my
Dad brought home. Now this
wasn't the first television
that I'd ever seen. I'd been
around. We were playing
hide-and-go-seek down at
Richard and Linda Gregg's
house one night and I peeped
through the window at their
set. Mr. and Mrs. Gregg
were a'watching some show
called "I've Got A Secret".
The guest would whisper a
secret into Gary Moore's ear
and Jane Meadows, Henry
Morgan, Betsy Palmer and
Bill Cullen would try to guess
what it was. The guest's sec-
ret that night was that she
was the widow of Casey
Jones, the famed engineer.
Henry and the group didn't


Mean More


even come close and the nice
lady won $80.00. I also had
seen part of a baseball game
at Paul David Campbell's
house. I don't remember
who was playing but Dizzy
Dean and Pee Wee Reese
were the announcers and as
you might well imagine, it
was sponsored by a beer
company.
Yes sir, I'd been around,
so when Dad turned on our
very own television, it was
the third set I'd ever seen. It
was a Saturday because we
watched "Have Gun Will
Travel" and then got ready
for "Gunsmoke". There was
gunsmoke right off as Matt
Dillon stepped out into the
street and shot a man even
before the first commercial.
I never did find out what the
bad guy had done. Late that
night we watched live studio
wrestling over WJBB-TV.
The main event was Frank
"Tarzen" Huewit and To-Jo
Yakamota. Wrestling back
in those days was brought to
you by Mother's Best flour.
Herb Welch, the channel 7
weather man who doubled as
the wrestling announcer did
the Mother's Best flour com-
mercials live. Between


Johnston Starts Parade


It's our information that State
President Harry Johnston is going
to pay a visit to Gulf County this
week in the interest of his cam-
paign for Governor of Florida.
The candidate is coming to
Port St. Joe, we imagine, for the
purpose of building up support for
his candidacy. We can think of no
other reason he might be visiting
with us.
At the rate high-powered sup-
port and running mates have been
abandoning the Johnston campaign
for one reason or another, we can
sympathize with his need to gather
all the support he can muster for
his s1tpring attempt ,tp.,get hiS,
ca nbigh rolling~ en the..small
number of voter support he might
be able to stir up here in little Gulf
County.
With the first of the year right
around the corner in which the
voters of Florida will select a new

e onslaught-which will probably
upon us the. first of the year.
L~ator Johnston is the first of
ait will probably turn into a
regular parade of hopefuls for the
Gubernatorial post early in the
year. As election time draws near,
the candidates will concentrate
their efforts on the larger counties
in the state.
As time goes on we will see if
the defections from Senator John-
ston's campaign was because of
favors refused or clashes in


ideologies. As time goes on we will
learn more about. the candidates
and Gulf County, like other coun-
ties in the state, will probably
throw its weight behind the candi-
date which will mean the most to
Gulf County.
Senator Johnston, a stranger to
Gulf, will be welcomed, if only to
see the way he parts his hair and
feels toward taxes.



Thanks, Fellas!

It was gratifying to us to see
the state's school board members,
- collectively, refuse to endorse the
question of a state lottery f6r
Florida to help finance education ih
our state.
*Personally, we would rather
see Florida struggle along as it has
with education than to see it take
the promised easy road to paying
for the education of our children.
We have not had all that many
problems in paying for what we
need in the way of education, even
if we're not spending as much as
some other'states per pupil, to send
them to school.
The school board members'
action was a rebuff for the head
school man of the state, Ralph
Turlington, who had endorsed the
lottery plan. To us, that only
proves that even the head educator
of the state can be wrong, too.


"C Day" Is

HERE IT IS Thursday, December
19. That means it's only six more days
until' Christmas day. That means I
have only five more days'in which to
do my Christmas shopping before our
family-opens the gifts on Christmas
Eve in our family room around the
Christmas tree.
We have sort of a mini-tradition at
our house. Since the kids got married
and left home, we all gather with the
grandchildren and the brood at our
house on Christmas Eve and open the
gifts and do a little Christmas eating,
etc. That leaves the kids free to go to
their spouses' parents home on
Christmas Day or do their thing at.
home on Christmas day.
Christmas Eve is usually the
biggest day of the year at our house.
The tables are laden, the area in and
around the tree is filled to overflowing
with gaily wrapped packages, grand-
children which are outside feel they
must come inside and the ones inside
have a compelling urge to go outside .
. no matter if it's raining, sleeting,
hot, cold or freezing. The same urges
exist.

something the other day about a "half
pipe". I have a piece of one at home.
I'll just saw it down the middle and
give him half of it.
Erin and DeAnna are the only
little girls in the tribe, so they usually
get what they want all year long. For
Christmas, all they want is what they
see on the TV commercials and
advertised in The Star.
They're typical girls-they want
everything. and come close to
getting it.

BUT, WHAT DO I want for
Christmas? What do I have on my
list? That's simple. I want all those
other people to get what they want and
for you to get what you want.

to a huge stack of flour sacks
beside the ring and tell
everyone how much better

About half way through the

To-Jo out of the ring onto the

dle of the third fall of the
main event as Herb called
the action To-Jo threw "Tar-
zen" over onto the Mother's
Best and this time "Tarzen"
hit To-Jo with the flour. I
began to have my. first
serious doubts about wrestl-
ing and television.
I was brought back to the
present as my youngest son
Jesse startled me by saying
"Dad, did you know there's a
T.V. in the clock shed?" As I
was washing my hands for
supper Josh came in "Dad,
why wouldanybody be dumb
enough to put a T.V. set in an ,
old clock shed?" My wife
didn't say a word at supper
but she had that "I know
what you got us for Christ-
mas" gleam in her eyes and
she kept jumping up and
down as she ate her brussel
sprouts.
After supper I went im-
mediately to the clock shed,
brought that T.V. into the liv-
ing room and set it down in
the middle of the floor and
said "Surprise!" As my wife
o crawled into bed that night
she said,''Did you know that
Remington Steele's hair is
black?"

Eye Openers
by Dr. Wesley Grace
VUDEI CASSETTE
PLAYERS
Viewing video cassette
movies at home is becoming
a national pastime, with lit-
tle or no regard for the visual
environment in which they
are shown. Since video
cassettes have no commer-
cials, there is less chance
that you will get up intermit-
tently and walk away from
the screen, giving your eyes
a rest and an opportunity to
change focus.
Follow these simple guide-
lines to avoid eyestrain:
1. Be sure the picture is
clear and stable.
2. Keep your screen clean to
avoid small blurs.
3. Keep reflections from
other light sources away
from the screen.
4. Look away from the
screen, for a moment now
and then, to interrupt pro-
longed staring.
5. Do not sit too close to the
screen.
6. If you normally wear
glasses for distances of
more than two feet, wear
/them for watching movies
at home.


7. Keep a soft light on in the
room where the movie is
being shown.
8. If your eyes feel tired,
strained, or teary after
viewing your favorite
movie of the evening, call
your optometrist and
make an appointment to
get your eyes checked.

.The Garden Center on 8th
SSt. was a center of activity
-'when the members of the
- Garden Club came together
Thursday, December 12 for a
;very special Christmas
.luncheon. The hall was
decorated for the occasion
-after the fashion of a Wil-
liamsburg Christmas of 1885.
SThe arrangements were both
-interesting and beautiful,
and some of them unusual.
Following the luncheon and
the business session, a most
interesting program was pre-
Ssented by the club president,
Mrs. Don Ashcraft, who
explained to the group just
how these arrangements of
-fruit and greenery were put
together and even taking
some of them apart to make
;them more understandable.'
.Apples were used in abund-
ance and another arrange-
ment featured "A Partridge
"in a: Pear Tree". Other
specialties included many

different fruits, used in dif-

brought by Mrs. H.W. Grif-

There were several inter-
esting pieces.
In concluding her pro-
gram, Mrs. Ashcraft passed
a beautiful book among the

of Williamsburg arrange-

included Mrs. Griffin, Mrs.

Class Collects for the Needy
The fifth grade class of Mrs. Jean Phillips at Port St. Joe Elementary School has spent the
last two weeks collecting canned goods, toys, and clothing for the hurricane victims of Gulf and
Franklin counties.
The class came up with the idea during a discussion of the damage caused by Hurricane
Kate. Rai-Lyn Lamb says, 'We thought we would help a little, because we care about people."
Ernest Exum says, "It made me feel great to be helping other people and their families."
Leroy Yarrell says, "They might have helped me if that had been me."
The class agrees that they had fun with the projects; it made them feel great and they wish
everyone a Merry Christmas.

Hardee's to Serve 3,500


Free Meals to the Needy


Harry Sanders owner of.
area Hardee's Restaurants
announced recently that 3500
free meals will be provided to
needy families in Bay, Gulf
and Franklin counties. "The
Christmas Day meals will be
accompanied by gifts and a
visit from Santa Claus",
Sanders said.
Sanders made the an-
nouncement at the area
Health and Rehabilitative
Services offices in Panama
City. HRS will distribute the
invitations primarily to fami-
lies with dependent children
and the elderly. The Salva-
tion Army will also identify
and give invitations to needy
families through the Empty
Stocking Fund.
Lennox Williams Sub-Dis-
trict administrator for HRS
said, "we have a lot of people
in need this year especially


after hurricanes Elena and
Kate. This will certainly
make Christmas a lot hap-
pier for a lot of families."
Hardee's employees will
donate their time to the effort
while the Hardee's Corpora-
tion and Prepared Foods of
El Paso provide the roast
beef. Area suppliers will
provide the additional neces-
sities for the occasion.
The suppliers who are
helping are:
Phillips Meats and Sea-
food, Panama City Coca-Cola
Bottling Company, Colonial
Baking Company, Flowers
Baking Company, Adams
Artcraft Printers, and Pa-
nama Welding.
Several community lead-
ers from each county will be

out the fastfood industry, in
fact I challenge others to do
the same, no one should have

State Representative Ron
Johnson who is chairman of
the House Committee on
Health and Rehabilitative
Services said, "This is so
very welcomed this year.
Our area has been hit so hard
that there are many who will
not have a very happy
Christmas. This is a fine
example of the community
helping each other." Johnson
praised the plan saying,
"The employees are giving
their time, the suppliers their
products, but most of all they
are giving of themselves."
The events are scheduled
between 11:00 a.m. and 2:00

$21 Million Land Sale


Details for last week's
story about the big land sale
here in Gulf County were sort
of sketchy since the sale
hadn't been consummated at


the time and still has not
been fully recorded, accord-
ing to Gulf County officials.
Since last week, it has been
learned the Northwest Flor-


ida Water Management
District purchased some 73,-
000 acres of environmentally
sensitive land under the Save
Our Rivers Program.


Floodplain land along the
Apalachicola River region
accounted for some 36,000
acres of the purchase.
According to Davage Run-
nels, chairman of the water
district's board, the purchase
"ensures that major parts of
the river floodplain will
remain protected, productive
and as open to the public as
possible."
River bottomlands in this
area are heavily used by
local residents for hunting,
fishing, bird watching and
other recreation. The district
plans to allow as much public
access as possible and meet-
ings will be held in February


in Apalachicola to give citi-
zens a chance to tell officials
how they want it used.
The NFWMD paid South-
west Forest Industries $21
million for the 36,000 acres,
rather than $4 million as
reported in last week's issue
of The Star.
To pay for the land, the
water management district
authorized the sale of 20-
year bonds to be repaid with
proceeds from state doc-
umentary stamp taxes.
The map accompanying
this article, shows the land
purchased along the Apala-
chicola River and Brothers
River areas set out by the
diagonal lines on the map.


captain, spoke to the Rotary
Club Thursday, telling them
how he came to follow a life
at adventures he had during his
45 years on the largest and
smallest vessels which ply
the sealanes of the world.
"I have visited nearly
every country in the world",
said Sealey, "and the mgin
thing I learned during my340
years at sea was that there is
no country in the world ike

Sealey said he went to'sea
when he was 15. "I just
walked down to the docks
here in Port St. Joe onegday
during World War II and took
off on a tugboat", he said.
"Later on I lied about myage
when I was 16 years oldjand
got a berth on one of thd big
-ships and I stayed there bntil
the end of my career, when I
retired recently".
Sealey said the last shp he
was captain of was the nost
interesting point of all hose
years. "It was a specialbuilt
ship to handle heavy cargoes
such as nuclear power
plants", he said. "The ship
was equipped to hand the
tremendous loads of the
nuclear plants and we car-
ried the whole plart on
board, delivering the-n all
over the world".
Prior to his duty aboard the
specialized freighter, Sealey
worked mostly for G'lf Oil,
commanding tankers, some
so large they couldn. even
come into port. He shid he
participated in the Fussian
grain lift, which was shipped
in tankers, sailing on to the
Persian Gulf and b-inging
home a cargo of oil.
"The ocean is a big -lace",
he said. "It takes twc weeks
to cross the Atlantic and four
weeks to cross the Pacific".
Sealey said the longest trip
he ever took was one which
started on the easte-n sea-
board, took his ship to the


Capetown, South Africa, then "In most of the ports

'Simple Tips


Can Sustain Life


In A Living Gift


by Roy Lee Carter
If you were the lucky
recipient of a dish garden,
potted flower or foliage plant
this Christmas, you probably
are wondering how you
should care for your "living"
gift. Most homeowners kill
their plants with kindness -
literally that is.
.Overwatering and over-
fertilizing often'cause more
problems than a lack of these
essentials for plant growth.
,Keep the following ideas in
mind and your plants will be
with you for many years to
come.
First of all, there is no such
thing as a house plant, a


CARTER
plant intended to grow inside
a home, office or other
building. When plants are


PUBLIC NOTICE
Notification is hereby given to the
public of the intent of the Federal
Emergency Management Agency
(FEMA) to reimburse eligible local
,governments and state agencies for
eligible costs incurred to repair all
publically-owned facilities damaged
as a result of Hurricane Kate. The
areas affected are the counties of
Franklin, Gadsden, Gulf, Leon, Liber-
ty and Wakulla in the State of Florida,
which was declared a major disaster
area by the President on December 3,
1985. This assistance is granted under
the authority of Public Law 93-288 as
amended, the Disaster Relief Act of
1974. This 'notice concerns those
facilities which are within the base of
one percent chance floodplain (also
known as the 100-year floodplain), or
the critical actions within the 500-year
floodplain. These facilities may have
adverse effects upon the floodplain or
may be vulnerable to damage by
flooding if they are restored to pre-
disaster condition.
These facilities include, but are not
limited to the following:
1. Non-emergency debris clearance.
2 .Non-emergency repair to protective
flood control and protective coastal
facilities.
3. Damage to roads, including streets,
culverts and bridges.
4. Damage to water control facilities.
5 Damage to public buildings and
related facilities.
6. Damage to public utilities.
7. Damage to private non-profit faci-
lities (hospitals, educational faci-
lities, emergency, utility, and
custodial care services)
The president's Executive Order
11988 on Floodplain Management re-
quires that all Federal actions in or af-
fecting the base floodplain be review-
ed for opportunities to relocate out of
the floodplain or to minimize future
dam* om flooding. FEMA has
S determind-that for certain types of
facilities, there are normally no alter-
natives to restorationinthe floodplain.
These are facilities which meet all of
the following criteria:
1.The FEMA estimated cost of
repairs is less than 50% of the
estimated replacement cost of the
entire facility and is less than
o00,000.00.
2. The facility Is not located in the
floodway or coastal high hazard
area.
3. The facility has not sustained struc-
tural damage in a previous Presi-
dentially-declared flooding major
disaster or emergency. The facility
Is not a critical one.
FEMA intends to provide assistance
for the restoration of the facilities


described above to their pre-disaster
condition except that certain
measures to mitigate the effects of
future flooding may be incorporated
into the restoration work. This will be
the only notice to the public concern-
ing these facilities.
Other facilities which do not fall into
one of the four criteria listed above,
are required to undergo more detailed
reviews, including study of alternative
locations. The public is invited to par-
ticipate in the process of identifying
alternatives and analyzing their im-
pacts. Details on how to obtain infor-
mation on specific projects and on the
submission of comments will be found
at the end of this notice. Further ex-
planation on the final determination on
the restoration of these facilities will
be given in subsequent notices.
Because of the urgent need for some
facilities of the type described in the
previous paragraph, an applicant may
have already started restoration of a
facility when the Federal Inspector
visited the site. Some of these facilities
would normally fall into the category
requiring examination of alternative
sites. These facilities will be restored
in their original location based upon
the following rationale.
One of the following situations ap-
plies in each case:,
1. The facility is functionally depen-
dent on its floodplain location.
2. The project facilitates open space
use.
3. The facilities are an integral part of
a larger network which would be
uneconomical to relocate.
Additionally, the possible effects of
not restoring the facility were examin-
ed. In each case, there was an over-
riding public need for the facility
which clearly'outweighed the order's
requirements to avoid the floodplain
and which made non-floodplain sites
not practicable. FEMA also consulted *
with State and local officials and ac- -
tioins which'ill be carried out do not
violate either State or local floodplain
protection standards. The restoration
of these facilities also will incorporate
certain measures designed to mitigate
the effects of future flooding.
Interested persons may obtain infor-
mation about these actions and their
loctions at the Office of the Federal
.raator at 5050 West Tennessee,
fallahassee, Florida 32304 or by call-
ing (904) 576-8106 between 8:00 a.m.
and 6:00 p.m., Monday through Fri-
day. Comments about specific pro-
jects and the application of the
Floodplain Management Executive
Order to them should be submitted in
writing to Paul E. Hall, Federal Coor-
dinator, at the above address by

Wins Savings Bond

J. D. Sculley, second from right, was the lucky recipient of a $100.00 Savings Bond given

grown indoors several re-
strictions are imposed upon
them. Lack of sufficient light
and low humidity are probab-
ly the most severe restric-
tions but temperatures can,
also be a problem.
Many foliage plants prefer
a relatively strong, filtered
or diffused light. Places near
windows or light fixtures
are usually suitable, but
avoid direct sunlight or very
dark areas of the home.
Flowering plants such as
mums and poinsettias will
stand more light than foliage
plants and should be placed
in bright areas.
Watering is one of the chief
causes of failure with plants
in the home, especially for
containers which don't have
drainage holes. Generally
speaking, most house plants
will require a thorough soak-
ing once a week. Water only
when necessary and don't let
the pots stand in saucers of
water unless the plants are
very tolerant to excess wa-
ter. Overwatering can kill
the plant roots and increase
chance of diseases and even-
tually kill the entire plant.


A






The only president to un-
dergo impeachment proceed-
ings (he was acquitted by one
vote), Andrew Johnson was
also the first ex-president to
serve later in the Senate.


Use old Christmas cards
to decorate large boxes
that are expensive and awk-
ward to wrap. Cut illustra-
tions off cards and glue
them to the box in a
montage-effect. It's like
making a patchwork quilt.


Most plants grow well in
temperatures of 60 to 70
degrees. Don't place the
plants in drafty locations
where sudden changes in-
temperature occur and dont:
place plants close to radia-
tors or air conditioners.
Proper fertilization is an-
other important part of grow-
ing healthy plants. Follow all
the directions on the contain-
ers so that you don't overfer-
tilize your plants. Too much
fertilizer can eventually kill
your plants.
Watch for common symp-
toms of foliage plants trou-
bles which are as follows:
Yellowing and dropping of
leaves can be caused by
gas fumes, chilling, overwa-
tering, poor drainage and
poor aeriation.
Weak growth or light green
or yellow leaves indicate too
intense light, lack of fertiliz-
er or a poor root system.
Brown tips or burned mar-
gins of leaves caused by
too much fertilizer, plants
dried out temporarily or
wind burn.

Run Event
The 4th Annual Tallahas-
see Ultradistance Classic
was held last Saturday, De-
cember 14 at Wakulla
Springs. Sixty five runners
from around the county
participated in the event.
Local runner, James Hanlon
entered the 50K (30 miles)
race. James placed number
14 overall, second in his age
group with a time of 3:59;04.
The temperature was in
the 20's, a major factor in the

allowed in most areas.
The reason rests in the
interest of public safety and
the public's perception of
armed hunters on a roadway.
Although there have been
no incidents of hunters acci-
dentally shooting passersby
on Florida highways, the
Game and Fresh Water Fish
Commission, seeking to pre-
vent just such a situation,
enacted a road hunting rule
in 1983 designed to set
hunters away from road-
ways.
The rule makes it illegal to
hunt from the right-of-way of
any federal, state or county
maintained road. Some roads
in Type I and II wildlife
management areas can be
exempted from the rule
provided they are completely
surrounded by management
area lands.
Wildlife authorities, say
most hunters have responded
well to the regulation, but
some arrests have been
made.

Completes His
Basic Training
Marine Pvt. Eric L. Par-
rish, son of Mr. H.L. Parrish
of 305 Duval St., Port St. Joe,
has completed recruit train-
ing at Marine Corps Recruit
Depot, San Diego.
During the 11 week train-
ing cycle, Parrish was taught
the basics of battlefield sur-
vival. He was introduced to
the typical daily routine that
he will experience during his
enlistment and studied the
personal and professional
standards traditionally exhi-
bited by Marines.
He participated in an ac-
tive physical conditioning
program and gained profi-
ciency in a variety of milita-
ry skills, including first aid,
rifle marksmanship and
close order drill. Teamwork
and self-discipline were em-
phasized throughout the
training cycle.

year and the first six weeks of the
current school year. After meeting
these criteria, a student's character,


leadership ability, and service are
taken into consideration by the high
school faculty.
The installation of new members
was presented to the student body and
to the parents of the 1985-86 candi-
dates by current members of the
Society, Michelle Holloman and Emi-
ly Six, and by members of the faculty.
Following the ceremonies, refresh-
ments were served to the parents and
to the candidates in the Student
Activity Room by the Junior National
Honor Society.
The" rew members are: Jennifer


Allred, Lynn Aman, Twila Burns,
Susan Francine Chambers, Sherrie

er, David Staab, Nancy Stoutamire,
Laura Van Pietersom, Carl White,

The employees of the Gulf
County Senior Citizens Asso-
ciation were honored Friday,
December 13. A dinner was'
provided by the Board of
Director at the Tyndall Air
Force Base NCO Club. Su-
perb steaks and delightful
red snapper was served. We
want to thank Susie Cooper
and Ometa Osborne for pre-
paring the programs.
The evenings entertain-
ment was provided by a
Christmas carol sing led by
our own Fred Kleeb who ran
up front when asked by Mr.
Stiles Brown. He was accom-
panied by Herman Stripling


who brought his guitar to
lend his talents to make the
evening a roaring success.
The Association and em-
ployees. want' to thank
Roche's Furniture Store and:
Western Auto for donating
some very nice door prizes.
This provided some well
earned extra treats for our
hard working employees.
The Board president said in
his closing remarks, "I've
never worked with any group
that helped one another any
more than the Senior Citizens
employees do". He also
stated, "You have expressed
much love, kindness and


brought so much joy to the
deserving people you so
wonderfully serve."
This week the Senior Citi-
zens will celebrate Christ-
mas with a nice turkey and
ham dinner at the Washing-
ton Site on December 20. We
invite all the Senior Citizens
to bring a covered dish and
join in the fun.

Apples, grapes, cranberries,
plums and cherries should
be stored in the refrigerator
immediately after purchase
and are best eaten within
a week.

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
and 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

Will Die


On Florida Highways During Christmas and New Year Holidays


The Florida Highi
trol released its pr
concerning highway
deaths for the up
Christmas and New
holiday period. Both
are likely to claim a
24 lives, many as a r
alcohol related accic


way Pa- It is predicted that 15
diction, persons will die on Florida's
Traffic streets and highways during
coming the Christmas holiday per-
Year's iod. This amounts to one
holidays death every' two hours
total of throughout the 30 hour per-
result of iod, beginning 6 p.m., Tues-
etits. day, December 24 and ending


midnight Wednesday, De-
cember 25.
Colonel Bobby R. Burkett,
Director of the Florida High-
way Patrol, stated; "If last
year is any indicator 60
percent, ,or nine traffic
deaths will.be alcohol rela-
ted. A majority of the fatal


crashes willoccur on straight
and level.roads during clear
weather conditions at night-
time." Department records
reveal that in addition to
driving under the influence,
careless driving, violations
of right.of way, and speeding
rank as the most often cited
factors as contributing to
those fatal crashes.
The New Year's holiday
period is expected to account
for nine deaths over a similar
30 hour period which will
begin 6 p.m., Tuesday, De-
cember 31, and continue until
midnight Wednesday, Janu-
ary 1, 1986 According to
Colonel Burkett: "During:
this period we traditionally
experience the highest per-
centage of alcohol related'
crashes of the year. Every


available trooper will be on
the road during these periods
paying special attention to
the impaired driver; Motor-
ists who observe a ,driver
thought to be impaired are
advised to contact FHP with
a vehicle description, loca-
tioti anddirection of travel so
we can hopefully stop the
vehicle before tragedy oc-
curs."
Burkett also noted that. 93
percent of all drivers and
passengers killed in last
year's Christmas and New
Year's holiday periods were
not using seat belts, even!
though they were available
"Seat belts do save lives. The
majority of those killed last
year could be alive today had
they buckled up," he stated.
"Our main objective is to


reduce the needless loss of
lives and human suffering
that results from traffic
accidents.. Enforcing DUI
Laws will be our top priority
during these holiday per-
i6ds," concluded Colonel
Burkett.
