A Year of Destruction, Promise


... Good News and Bad News


This past year was an interest-
ing one in Gulf County Almost
every month of the year, there was
an incident reported which had a
great impact on the county, the city
andits inhabitants It's a hard job to
select the top stories from the many
which affected Gulf County, be-
cause there were so many
Ordinarily a year which con-
tains no elections fails to ignite
many fireworks or generate many
important stories.
The weather took care of much
of that slack, however.
Weather, which usually is the
introduction to most conversations,
really monopolized the attention of
Gulf Countians last year. If it wasn't
freezing, it was a heat wave. If there
wasn't a drought, it was flooding
from the heavy rains. And, let's not
forget the three hurricanes which
affected the coastline of Gulf County
within a period of three months One
of those hurricanes visited twice in
three days.
First, in the month of January
of 1985, an arctic cold front zapped
the county with five degree temper-
ature. While that isn't cold for
Minnesota or Alaska, it is a
situation almost beyond coping with
here in the Panhandle of Florida.
Water pipes burst, foliage was
killed and things came almost to a
standstill for a couple of days
around January 20. waiting for the
thaw.
Then came Labor Day.
Hurricane Elena decided to call

feint toward Louisiana. Elena pass-
ed by the beaches, huffing and
puffing and 'trying to blow our
houses down. Apparently, the storm
liked what it was or was disappoint-
ed over the lack of damage, because
two days later, here it came again.
This time, trees were blown over,
roofs were damaged and trees were
blown across a hand-ful of roofs'and
carports. Metal awnings and car-
ports were the main victims and
wound up scattered all over the
county.
Then came Juan, who merely

churned up the seas a little, paving
the way for Kate.
Kate was no lady as she
wrecked more damage to Gulf and
Franklin counties than either coun-
ty had seen in a generation. Kate
brought high water, damaging
winds and flooding rains. Trees
were blown down, damaging an
untold number of roofs; shingles
were blown off and many buildings
and homes flooded by the rising
waters.


SThe carport shown demolished above was just one example of the
devastation inflicted in Gulf County by Hurricane Kate.


r Insurance companies reported
,a record number of claims and the
county even received designation as
a disaster area because of the
damage inflicted.
Weather was truly the top story
of the year in Gulf County.
FOUR DIE ON HIGHWAYS
SThe year 1985 was not a
particularly bloody year on Gulf
County highways. There were only
four deaths recorded on the streets
and roads, caused by motor vehi-
cles. As far as the number of deaths
go, it was a light year.
Listed among those highway
deaths was the accident which took
the life, of Dr. Shirley Simpson of
Port St. Joe. Dr.. Simpson was one of
those doctors who made friends
, with' her :patients and doctored
everyone who need it. Her death
- was a tremendous shock to the
community and the county and
caused a state of mourning to exist
for days after the accident.
HIGHLAND VIEW BRIDGE
The need for a new high-rise
bridge across the Gulf County
Canal at Highland View, which had
been a part of the news for several
years received a promise of hope
this past year.
It was this past year that
Department of Transportation Sec-
retary Paul Pappas announced the
local Port Authority had presented
a check for $2 million to DOT to pay
for part of the job and the project
would be advanced from its sche-
duled end of the decade beginning.
Pappas told local interests planning
on the bridge would begin in 1985
and a hearing was held later in the
year to ascertain public feeling for
the route the approaches should

Gulf County Sheriff Al
Harrison said the Christmas
and New Year holidays had
passed by in Gulf County
without a single problem.
"People behaved themselves
through the Christmas holi-
day and thus far, there has
been no problem with the
New Year observance", Har-
rison said Tuesday morning.
"I was surprised at the
attitude of our people during
the holiday, but we didn't
have a single call related to
the holiday. We didn't even
have more incidence of
drinking over the ordinary",
the Sheriff said. "By and
large, we have had a safe,
sane and sober holiday and
we're riot expecting anything
out of the ordinary for the
New Year's Eve celebra-
tion".
In the City of Port St. Joe,
the holidays were uneventful,
too, according to the local
police department.
Fire Chief Mark Collier
said fire damaged a sedan
owned by Leroy Gathers last
Monday night, but other than
that and a small grass fire on
Bellamy Circle, there were
no, accidents, people hurt or
property destroyed pver the
.,holidays. '
Fire Chief Collier said


Gathers' car had apparently
ran out of gas on First Street
in front of the AN Railroad
building. "Gathers said he
went home to get some
money to get gas for his car
and when he returned, he
found it burning in the trunk


section", Collier said.
The fire was quickly put
out after doing considerable
damage to the rear of the
.vehicle.
Law enforcement officials
said an occasional incident
was reported of shooting

Jr. Miss Has Been

Rescheduled for Jan. 11


Al Ray, project chairman
for the Junior Miss program
for Gulf County announced
this week the Kiwanis Club
has re-scheduled the ,pro-
gram for Saturday, January
11. The program was origin-
ally scheduled for Saturday,
November 23 but hurricane
Kate came along and spoiled
those plans.
Ray said there are 21
young ladies all set to
participate in the competi:
tion ,which will select a
representative from Gulf


County to represent the coun-
ty in the state competition to
be held in Pensacola in
February. The winner of the
state competition goes on to
the national contest in Mo-

The winner of the Gulf

Vandals have climbed the water
tank at the corner of Long Avenue and
Tenth Street and left their mark in the
form of graffiti painted on the surface
and city officials are not at all ple, "'d
with the matter.
According to City Clerk, Alden
Farris, the city has instructed the
Sheriff's Department and the Port St.
Joe Police Department to investigate
the matter and try to come up with


evidence which will prove who did it.
"The way things stand now, they are
talking about prosecuting the guilty
party or parties", Farris said.
What really ticked the officials off
was the fact that the tank was just
re-built and re-painted at a cost of
$45,000. "We hadn't even put water
back insidethe tank nor received the
invoice from the company which did
'--" -ork", Farris said.


The tank was a pretty light blue
all over after the refurbishing job
until the night-time painters took over
and put the black letters high on the
tank. "Whoever did it will face the
probability of having to pay for having
the graffiti removed or covered
over", Farris said.

officials has is the danger involved to

Kesley Colbert's Country Column



Gone with the Wind.


You know, I sure wouldn't
want to be different so I
thought today we'd take a
look back at '85 and later on
in this little blurb I'll tell you
exactly what's going to hap-
pen in 1986. Well, almost ex-
actly. The thing that sticks
out about 1985 was the speed
in which it went by. Have
you noticed that the "years"
have speeded up here lately.
No way that you can con-
vince me that 1985 lasted as
long as 1956. No way.
January, 1956 seemed like it
lasted forever. School got out
that year the last week of
May. It liken' to have never
come. Why, you could have
put all of 1985 into the first
five months of 1956. Now
June and July of '56 went by
pretty quick but then she
slowed as she hit August and.
September and I'm here to
tell you she stalled complete-
ly around the first of
December. I thought Christ-
mas that year was never go-


ing to get here. You
remember those long years
we had back in the '50's and
60's, don't you?
I can't figure out exactly
why the years are speeding
up. I understand that the
University of Texas at El
Paso is doing some heavy re-
search on the matter. I think
they might'a got a huge
grant from the federal gov-
ernment to help fund their
project. Now the federal gov-
ernment hasn't sent me any
"research money" but I
have been doing some inde-
pendent, privately funded
study on this subject. I
believe that we're having
faster years now-a-days be-
cause of all those rockets
and space ships we've been
sending off into "outer
space". They .are poking
holes in the atmosphere.
Lots of holes. Maybe some of
1985 slipped through these

sphere. Now, I'm not dead

any degree of comfort.

without any bait.
I'm death on polly-wogs.
I'm also proud to announce I can
still catch a channel catfish in and
among the eels and polly-wogs.

MY ENTIRE CHRISTMAS holi-
day wasn't spent just lazing around
though. I did a little work, if you can
call it work.
I came down to the office and


wrote this blurb, in order to have it
ready Monday morning when we
started to crank back up again after
nearly a week of inactivity.
Starting up after a few days'�-


VA;-)


inactivity affects us here at The Star
just like it affects the paper mill when
it shuts down for a few days.
When the paper mill shuts down
and re-starts its machinery, it takes a
while for the paper sheet to start
coming through the machine just
right. Sometimes, it takes as much as
a day in order to get everything
running just right and the people
programmed to work instead of play.


It's that way around here, too. I'll
wager it will be at least the middle of
the afternoon Monday before the first
productive move is made here at The
Star. It is so seldom we get more than
a long week end off in one wad, that a
week off is like a story which deserves
a front page screamer. It doesn't
happen often and when it does, it's
exciting. People just can't quit talking
about it.
We took the entire week off last
Christmas here at The Star, and the
folks who put out your weekly
newspaper are still talking about all
that leisure time.
I believe had I not decided to take
off a week again this year, I would
have had a rebellion on my hands.
I don't know what we'll do with
next year, when Christmas comes on
a Thursday. We'll just cross that
bridge when we come to it.
+++++
NOW, WE HAVE to get started on
another year. With today the second
day of 1986, the new year is here for
the starting whether or not we're
ready to do anything with it..
Like as not, I'm still dating things


in 1985 and haven't hung up the new
calendars yet.
I'll get around to it before long,
though.
Today, I'm probably still suffer-
ing from eye strain from watching so
many bowl games, but even that will
pass.
There's one thing I can say for
certain about the new year, even
though this was written before I
partook of my blackeye peas and hog
jowl on New Year's day, I know I
enjoyed them.
You take Christmas Eve, for
example. To set a little change of
pace, Frenchie cooked up a big pot of
pinto beans, and a pan of a new recipe
she found, called rice cornbread,
which included Mexican spicy corn,
rice and the usual cornbread ingred-
ients. Let me tell you, that was some
good Christmas Eve eating.
The kids all came over and lit in
on the cakes, pies, fancy cheeses, hours
d'oeuvres, etc. I got me a bowl, cut up
a piece of that rice cornbread in the
bottom and covered it with pinto
beans and ham hock.
Ambrosia!

It's been a long time. It's
been an even longer journey
and a world of experience.
Twenty months ago Shad
and I left the warmth and
comfort of our home and
headed north. Our destina-
tion was a city dangerously
close to the Mason-Dixon
Line. I vowed years ago to
never cross that boundary
.again. Shad said he would
rather hang himself from the
river bridge. Anyway, about
two months later the wife and
children loaded all our world-
ly belongings into a moving
van and, with tears in their
precious eyes, headed for the
same city.
Sitting here now in the
comfort of our modest home
at 818 Marvin Avenue, I
realize that the journey, the
loneliness, the hard work, the
cold ruthlessness of big city
3 life and the experiences are
some of those things that I
wouldn't take anything for.
I do not, however, wish to
travel that road again. I
compare the last twenty
months to a visit to the
dentist office; I'm glad I
.went because I had to, but I
don't want to go back. I don't
even want to think about it,
much less go back --not even
for a visit!
I was unprepared for the
stress and strain big city
living can place on a country
boy and his family. Maybe I
was too prepared. I just don't
know. I do know, however,
that it just didn't work oiut

OBITUARIES:


music city were beset by
uncaring neighbors, ruthless
landlords, murderous traffic,
pornographers, kidnappers
and a .coldness that seem to
cover the respective cities.
The river city is the first
place I have ever left and
didn't say goodbye to anyone.
I had a few choice words for
our landlord and a few
neighbors, but they had
nothing td do with goodbye
and can't be printed in this
paper.
Comparing the two cities,
the music city was a much
better place to live. I com-
pare the first one to Chicago;
a few murders a day keeps
the population explosion in
check.
There is one thing I learned
from the music city. I
thought I liked country mu-
sic. After living there about
two months I had heard all I
everwanted to hear of and
'from' Johiny" Cash, Dolly
Parton, Conway Twitty, Wil-
lie Nelson and the Mandrell
sisters. It's like eating ice
cream three times a day; it
doesn't take long to get your
fill.
My first trip to the Grand
Ole Opry was a bummer too.
Things just ain't like they
used to be,.or at least the way
I thought they were. As a
matter of fact, that's what a
friend told me upon learning
we were returning to our
home. He said, "Wendell,
you know 'we are happy you
and the family are returning,
but you know that things
can't ever be like they were
before, don't-y6u?'' "'es," I
replied, "and I hope they are
not. We expect and hope they
are better!"
To say we missed our
friendss , our home, our:
church and our 'town would
.be' 'a vast understatement.
We even missed Billy Bar-
low, if you can believe that!
This town is like an old pair
of shoes; it's comfortable
and warm and we like the
way it *ears We plan on
being here for quite some
,Ai tie.-,ajifetime, we:�o9pe,
Thanks to all of you who
made our homecoming such
a wonderful event Thanks to
those of you who sent food, to
those who helped unload the
truck, to those who just
stopped by to say welcome
back and did nothing.
Thanks, most of all, to all of
you for just being you.

follow.
Pappas said construction of a
new bridge for the Intracoastal
Canal at White. City would begin
during the 1986 fiscal year which
begins in July of this year. The
following year-in fiscal 1987-con-
struction was promised to begin on
the Highland View bridge, advanc-
ing plans for the new bridge by two
years.
BEACHES GET WATER SYSTEM
A central water and sewer
system continued to be a concern of
the beach communities ih and
around Gulf County, in order to aid
development plans along.
The desire for the services had
some success during 1985, with the
initiation of water service at St. Joe
Beach. A central water system was
completed to the beaches area and
turned on in the late spring.
Highland View also started
receiving water from the Beaches
system, which is getting its treated
water from the Port St. Joe system.
The Highland View system was
determined to be unsafe to drink by
the Health Department during early
summer and a warning was issued
to boil the water from their old
system before drinking it.
Highland View was hooked to
the new water system and their old
well system abandoned.
ZONING REARS ITS HEAD
Rampant building on Gulf Coun-
ty's beaches and attempts made by
at least two utility firms to furnish
water and sewer to the south end of
Gulf's beach area, prompted the
County Commission to begin think-
ing about the need for zoning in
these unincorporated areas to pro-
tect the interest of the county and
the property owners.
At present there are no controls
on beach construction except those
practiced by people who have
embarked on the expensive projects
of construction of dwellings.
Building Inspector Dewayne
Manuel has said "There isn't much
danger from the building because
nobody is going to ruin their own
property after paying a high price
for it."
DNR THREATENS A MOVE
The Department of Natural
Resources stirred up the ire of
property owners in Gulf County with
a threat to extend the building
control zone 'aloni tffe county"
waterfront. In some places, the
DNR threatened to prohibit or
drasticly restrict the building of
structures and damage to the sand
dunes.
DNR suggestions did-' .et
with approval except fro.a DNR
people, still the agency plowed on
with their intent, held two public
hearings to discuss the matter and
left Port St. Joe saying they would
give their final decision after the
first of the year..
The first of the year has come
and DNR is publishing the first of a
series of notices in today's issue of
The Star, scheduling the final
hearing on the matter in Tallahas-
see on January 21.
HOSPITAL SOLD
Gulf Pines Hospital here in Port
St. Joe was sold in the late summer
to a Columbus, Georgia corporation
after four years of ownership by
Baptist Medical Center in Jackson-
ville.
No purchase price has ever
been revealed by either party, but is
expected to be substantial.
The new ownership, Health
Care Management Corporation has
pledged to up-grade the facilities
and attract doctors to the area to
furnish treatment and care for
patients in the hospital.

.. Gone but Not Forgotten

Paul Pappas, Secretary of DOT, left, signs an agreement with George
Tapper, chairman of the Port Authority to begin planning work for a new
bridge at Highland View on Highway 98.


between Clerk of the Court Jerry
Gates and the Gulf County Commis-
sion over who is responsible for the
tax funds kept in Gulf County
accounts and who is responsible for
the proper disbursing of these
funds.
Gates said he is legally respon-
sible for seeing there are funds
available to be disbursed and that
budgets are not overspent without
action being taken to finance the
operations first. The County Com-
mission took the attitude they were
the ones who decided what was to be
spent and when and Gates should
release funds if they say so.
This has developed into an
impasse between the two county
offices, which hasn't been deter-
mined as yet.
Gates is writing checks at the,
Commission's orders because of a
ruling by Judge Don Sirmons
instructing him tb do so.
Gates is still maintaining the
method of expenditures is wrong.
BIG LAND SALE
In the final days of 1985, the
State of Florida purchased some $21
million worth of Apalachicola River
shorelines in Gulf County under the
Save Our Shores program of the
state.
The property, purchased from
Southwest Forest Industries, con-
tains the prime hunting and fishing
areas of the county and has
sportsmen in the county apprehen-
sive until they learn more details
concerning the state's planned
degree of protection for the pro-
perty.

IRS Puts Income



Tax Notice In Mail


More than 4.8 million Flor-
ida taxpayers will soon be
receiving their federal in-
come tax packages, accord-
ing to Merlin W. Heye,
Internal Revenue Service
district director for Florida.
Taxpayers will receive ei-
ther the Form 1040 or Form
1040EZ and 1040A package,
depending on which form
they filed last year. Farm-
ers, fishermen and indivi-
duals with business returns
whose returns were prepared
by tax practitioners will
receive post cards with ad-
dress labels in lieu of actual
tax packages. This step was
taken to save printing and
mailing costs of tax packages
that normally are not used,
Heye noted.
This year the U.S. Postal
Service will be forwarding all
tax packages to taxpayers
who have furnished their new
addresses. "As a result,

nearly 250,000 more Flori-
dians will now be receiving
their packages," Heye said.
Taxpayers who have not
received their packages by
January 15, 1986, should call
IRS at 'l-800-424-FORM, or
they may visit their local
office. Tax forms are also
available at most post offices
and many banks and libra-
ries. Some Floridians who
have had a change in their
tax status may not be able to
use the forms received in the
mail.
The Form 1040EZ, contain-
ing only 11 lines to complete,
is designed for single tax-
payers, with no dependents,
whose taxable income is less
that $50,000 - earned from
wages, salaries and tips, and
no more than $400 in interest.
Form 1040A may be used
by taxpayers with taxable
income of less than $50,000 in
wages, salaries, tips, unem-
plOymeS A #D.Rsgtion, in-
terest or dividends. The form
may be used to claim some
adjustments to income, such
as deductions for a married
couple when both work, IRA
contributions, tax credits for
child and dependent care
expenses and political con-
tributions.
Even though taxpayers
cannot itemize deductions,
they can claim one-half of
their charitable contribu-
tions on all tax forms.
Form 1040 is for those


taxpayers who itemize de-
ductions, claim special cre-
dits and adjustments or are
required to use the form
because of their filing status,
income level or source of
income.
There have been a number
of changes to the new forms
because of tax law changes
that are effective for 1985,
Heye noted. The tax rate for
all brackets has been adjust-
ed so that inflation does not
increase the tax. Similarly,
the personal exemption has
been increased to $1,040 and
the zero bracket amounts for

Some of these facilities are within

located, in part, within the floodway.
FEMA may require that the restora-
tion of these facilities incorporate cer-

Although these projects are in the

based on the following rationale:
1. The bridges are part of existing net-

2. No known alternate sites are avail-

3. There are no other known prac-

4. No long range adverse effects to the
physical environment are known to
exist.
5. Failure. to restore pre-existing
routes could cause serious time
delays for emergency and other

6. Repair, replacement or provision of
protective structures will mitigate
against future damages (by flood-

Sharks


Port St. Joe's Sharks con-
tinue to act as if they own the
Mosley Holiday Classic bas-
ketball tournament, as they
took the tournament cham-
pionship for the fourth time
in five years Saturday night,
tripping the host Dolphins,
72-62 in the championship
game.
The Sharks won three
games, comparatively easy,
over three opponents who
were supposed to have given
them trouble this year.
In the opening game Thurs-
day afternoon, the Sharks
took on the Niceville Eagles
and rode a 43-28 half-time
lead to an 85-73 win. Friday
night, what was billed as. the
"battle" of the tournament,
with a much-improved Apa-
lachicola, turned out to be a
rout of the oystermen by the
Sharks. Saturday night's
championship game with the
Dolphins. marked the third
try the Dolphins have made
at defeating the Sharks in the
holiday classic, only to come
up short'in all three tries.

PSJ 85, NICEVILLE 73
Thursday afternoon, the
Sharks took on the Eagles in
the opening game of the
tournament, running and
gunning their way to their
sixth win of the young
season.
Dexter Baxter, who was to
eventually win designation
as the tournament's most
valuable player, scored 27
points for his Port St. Joe
team against the Eagles. The
Sharks rode the shooting of
Baxter, Curtis Beard, Josh
'Jenkins and Doug Robinson,
as they took the lead at the
game's beginning and held it
for the entire evening.
Baxter and Robinson led
the Shark defense with 15 and
11 rebounds respectively.
The Sharks had a com-
manding 43-28 lead at half.
time and out-scored the
Eagles 33-16 in the third
period before slacking up in
th final stanza.

The game between the
Sharks and the Apalachicola
team was the most-talked
about and anticipated contest
of the entire tournament, but
the Sharks came in hot.as a.
firecracker and ran up a
commanding 70-34 lead at
half-time before the Apala-
chicola team could get its
game going.
So far in- the season, the
Apalach five has made life
miserable for its foes with its
full court press, but the
quick Sharks ran around the
press early and before the
Apalach team could regroup,
the Sharks had control of the
game.
Doug Robinson played per-
haps his best game of his
career, leading the Sharks
to their first 100 point game
of the season with his per-
sonal high of 35 and 15
rebounds.
The Sharks put a total of
109 points on the board while
holding the extremely potent
Apachicola offense to 87.

coach Jim Belin said after
the game. "We were just
lucky we were quicker than
they were. If we had been
forced to play their game it
might have been a different
outcome".
The Sharks had four play-

figures. Following Robinson
with his 35 points were Josh
Jenkins with 27, Dexter Bax-
ter had 21 and Curtis Beard,
16.
Sean Williams of Apalachi-

points in a half sets a record
for a Port St. Joe team. "I
don't remember any team at
our school ever scoring that
many points in such a short
time before", he said.

The Sharks treated their
hosts rough in the champion-
ship game Saturday night,
romping on the Dolphins to
score their third champion-

County team.
Dexter Baxter took the
scoring honors against the
Dolphins, scoring 31 points
in the game to lead the
scoring by both teams. His
high-scoring team mate of

points for the Sharks in the
championship game. Josh
Jenkins added 10 and Curtis
Beard had 10 to his credit.
Keith Brown was leading

Transplanting Requires



Care to Avoid Shock


by ROY LEE CARTER
County Extension Director
Maybe there is a tree on
one part of your property
that you want to move to
another location. Perhaps a
neighbor has offered you a
tree that will improve your
landscape, you may want to
obtain a new species from a
nursery, or the wild, if so, it's
time to become familiar with
the do's and don't's of tree
transplanting. By following
proper methods, you can help
insure the survival of the tree
you're moving.
Transplanting can be quite

a shock to trees. If they don't
receive proper care and
handling throughout the
operation, they'll probably
die. In this article I will
discuss some general rules to
follow when moving trees.
My information was provid-
ed by Extension Horticultur-
ist, Dr. Robert Black with
IFAS at the University of
Florida.
Before we go into detail
about transplanting trees, we
need to talk briefly about
legal consideration of taking
trees from the wild. The state
of Florida has a native plant
preservation law which con-


Family and Friends


trols the destruction, collec-
tion, and sale of various
endangered and threatened
trees, plants, and shrubs. So
you need to keep this law in
mind and follow the legal
procedures for obtaining en-
dangered or threatened
plants.
Although most trees can be
moved any time of the year,
different tree families have
optimum seasons in which
they should be transplanted,
to .insure quick adaptation to
their new environment. De-
ciduous trees seem to do
better if they are moved in
fall, winter or spring. Ever-
greens suffer least when
transplanted during August
and early September. It is
best to move palms during
the warm, rainy summer
months.
One tree moving problem,
especially during summer is
maintaining adequate mois-
ture. During transplanting,
water loss through the leaves
can be quite severe. So you
should apply an anti-trans-


pirant, a foliage spray avail-
able from nurseries and
garden center. This mini-
mizes moisture loss by block-
ing leaf pores.
Most Florida trees grow
best when the soil pH is
between five point five (5.5)
and six (6). So you may need
to adjust the pH before
transplanting while the tree
is still in its original location,
not after it's been dug up.
Another important trans-
planting factor is proper
drainage. Poor drainage can
adversely affect a trans-
plant. To test drainage, dig
the planting hole in advance
and fill it with water. If all
the water drains out in the
first 18 to 24 hours, drainage
is satisfactory. Also, before
you transplant check for
underground utility lines or
pipes, and remove all buried
debris especially old mortar
and broken concrete blocks.
A final consideration is
root pruning. This encour-
ages development of fibrous
roots and minimizes shock at


Roy Lee Carter


planting time. Early spring
is usually the best time for
root pruning. Large trees
should be pruned at least one
growing season prior to
moving. Some experts sug-
gest extending pruning over
two years - pruning half the
roots the first year, half the
second, and moving the tree
the third.
To prune, cut through the
lateral roots 'with a sharp
spade, forming a circle
around the tree about 10 to 12
times its trunk diameter.
Make the cuts deep enough to
cut most of the lateral roots.
When it's time to transplant,
the severed roots will have
sprouted many feeder roots,
which will help the tree
become established in its
new location.

Bass Regulation Program Set for Lake Talquin


The Game and Fresh Wa-
ter'Fish Commission is con-
sidering an experimental slot
limit regulation for bass
fishing on Lake Talquin in
northwest Florida.
A public hearing to discuss
the proposed regulation has
been scheduled for Jan. 15 at
the Northwest Florida Water
Management District office
on Highway 90 near Quincy.
The five-member Commis-
sion will consider the public
input at its next meeting, to
be held in Tallahassee on
January 24.
The slot limit is necessary
to protect the bumper crop of
bass produced following the
1983-84 drawdown of the lake,
according to Forrest Ware,
head of the Commission's
Bureau of Fisheries Re-
search.
S"Because of the draw-
idown, we've seen a 700
percent increase in the large-
mouth bass population,"
Ware said. "If we catch these
bass and remove them as
one-pounders in 1986, the
benefits of the drawdown will
be limited and short lived. If
we protect a major-portion of
these young bass, the bene-
fits will be extended and
magnified."
SCommission fishery biolo-
gists are recommending the
installation of a slot limit for
Talquin bass between 11 and
14 inches in total length. If
approved by the Commis-
sion, the regulation could go
into effect as early as March
:L. This would mean that all
bass caught during the ex-
periment that measure be-
tween 11 and 14 inches would
have to be returned to the
water unharmed.
Ware explained that the
slot limit would protect ap-
proximately 50 to 60 percent
bf the young bass in the lake
luring the next year.
"This would achieve seve-
ral major benefits," he said.
.'More bass would mean
better bass fishing, even
tioaugh some of them would
have to be returned to the
water and recycled for future
use."
More bass of a proper size
- about one pound - would
provide increased predation
on panfishes, such as bream,
shellcracker and speckled
perch, to ensure population
quality.
"Without bass feeding on
small bream to maintain


their numbers in proper balance, we would lose biolo- gical control and the predic- table results would be small, stunted bream similar to the

After several false starts and
much debate and attention, the
House of Representatives has
passed a bill which provides the
most sweeping overhaul of the
income tax system in more than
40 years.
The tax bill, which was
written by the House Ways and
Means Committee, is designed
to lower rates for individuals
while shifting over $100 billion
in taxes from individuals to cor-
porations. Specific provisions
will also close loopholes which
allow wealthy individuals'and
corporations to avoid taxes and
excuse roughly six million low
income Wage earners from pay-
ing taxes.
While this bill is a major step
toward tax reform and simplifi-
cation, it is far from perfect. I
am especially concerned with
the timber and investment tax
credit provisions, as I feel they
will be detrimental to our
economy.
Although the tax bill has
passed the House, it still has a
long way to go before becom-
ing law. The Senate will now
take up consideration of the
measure and I am hopeful that
some of the problem areas will
be altered to a more satisfactory
compromise in the final bill.
* * *
The results of my annual
questionnaire are just about all
tabulated and I shall be releas-
ing them within the next few
weeks. Additionally, I will be
discussing the results in this
column.
I want to thank all of you
who took the time to respond.
It is always of tremendous
benefit for me to' have your
views and ideas and, once
again, the people of the Second
District let me know what is on
their minds.

America's coming home again! It's shown by the surge of interest in down-home
regional cooking. In that spirit, The Kitchens has created Shrimp Gumbo in
a Bread Basket, a new twist on the infamous Louisiana Creole.
This tasty dish starts with traditional shrimp, okra and corn on the cob. But the
typical tomato-based sauce is streamlined with instant tomato soup mix. It contributes
a rich tomato broth and unique blend of seasonings all in one step. Just add a little
bottled hot pepper sauce for that traditional Southern "heat."
Though the taste is authentic, serving this gumbo is certainly not.,Rather than
spooned over rice, the shrimp, okra and corn'are cleverly presented in a rohnd hollowed-
out bread loaf with the tomato soup mixture served on the side.
Be sure to set the table with spoons, forks and knives. You'll need all three for this
hearty meal full of down-home American goodness!
Shrimp Gumbo In A Bread Basket
1 loaf unsliced round bread 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper
(about 9-in. diameter) sauce
1/4 cup melted butter or margarine 1 package (8 oz.) frozen sliced okra
3 envelopes Tomato 2 frozen ears corn, partially thawed
Cup-a-Soup T.1 and quartered
2 cups water 1 pound uncooked shrimp, cleaned
Preheat oven to 4000.
Cut lengthwise slice off top of bread. Hollow out center, leaving 1/2-inch shell. Brush
bottom and sides of shell with butter and bake 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, in large saucepan, combine tomato instant soup mix, water and hot pepper
sauce; bring to a boil. Add okra and corn and cook, stirring occasionally, 15 minutes.
Stir in shrimp and cook 5 minutes or until shrimp are tender. Spoon shrimp, corn and
okra into hot bread shell; pour tomato soup mixture into small crock or bowl. In each
serving bowl, ladle tomato soup mixture over shrimp mixture. Serve with bread shell,
cut into wedges. Makes about 1 quart gumbo.


pre-drawdown conditions,"
Ware said.
"We can harvest our major
crop of these bass as small
fish in 1986 or extend their
life with the slot limit and
catch them as larger fish in
later years." he said.
Individuals wishing to


comment about the proposed
regulation should plan to
attend the public hearing on
Jan. 15 at 7:30 p.m. Those
unable to attend the meeting
can make their opinions
known by writing the Game

PUBLIC NOTICE
Repair of Piivate Bridges and
Protective Structures
The Federal Emergency Manage-
ment Agency (FEMA) gives final
notice to the public of its intent to
determine whether the repair,
replacement and provision of private
bridges and protective structures
under the Individual and Family
Grant (IFG) Program (Section 408 of
the Disaster Relief Act of 1974) com-
plies with the President's Order on
Floodplain Management (Executive
SOrder 11988). FEMA proposes to assist
the State to fund this repair, replace-
ment or provision because of the re-
cent flooding in the following counties,.
which are included in the President's
Declaration of a Major Disaster for
Florida (FEMA-756-DR).
FRANKLIN, GULF, WAKULLA,
JEFFERSON, LEON, LIBERTY,
CALHOUN.
Some of these facilities are within
the 100-year floodplain and span the
floodway and may be structurally
located, in part, within the floodway.
FEMA may require that the restora-
tion of these facilities incorporate cer-
tain measures to mitigate against ef-
Sfects of future flooding.
Although these projects are in the
floodway, FEMA's participation is
based on the following rationale:
1. The bridges are partof existing net-
cally be replaced.
2. No known alternate sites are avail-
able.
3. There are no other known prac-
ticable ways of crossing the flood-
ways.
4. No long range adverse effects to the
Physical environment are known to
exist;
5. Failure to restore pre-existing
routes could cause serious time
delays for emergency and other
vehicles.
6. Repair,replacement orproyision of
protective structures will mitigate
against future damages (by flood-
ing or slides) to private individuals.
This rationale for proposed par-
ticipation in restoration of bridges and
protective structures provides the
basis for consideration of funding. In-
terested parties are requested to sub-
mit their views in writing to the
Disaster Recovery Manager, Federal
Emergency Management Agency.

DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL
RESOURCES
Rule No. 16B-26.016
RULE TITLE: Description of the Gulf
County Coastal Construction Control
Line.
PURPOSE AND EFFECT: The pur-
pose is to reestablish the Gulf County.
Coastal Construction Control Line.
The effect will substantially relocate
the coastal construction control line
landward of the current line in order to
more accurately define that portion of
the beach-dune system which is sub-
ject to severe fluctuations based upon
the 100-year storm surge and storm
waves, and thus define the area within
which special siting and design con-
siderations are required to ensure pro-
tection to the beach-dune system, pro-
posed structures or existing struc-
tures, and adjacent properties,
SUMMARY: The proposed rule will
set forth the legal description of the
coastal construction control line front-
ing the'Gulf of Mexico in Gulf County.
Construction, excavation, and altera-
tion on property seaward thereof will
require a permit from the Department
N of Natural Resources pursuit to Sec-
tion 161.053, Florida Statutes, and
Chapter 16B-33, Florida Administra-
tive Code.
RULEMAKING AUTHORITY: Sec-
tion 370.021(1), Florida Statutes.
LAW IMPLEMENTED: Section
161.053, Florida Statutes.
SUMMARY OF THE ESTIMATE OF
ECONOMIC IMPACT: The estimated
cost to the Department for administra-
tion of the coastal construction control
line program for the affected proper-
ties in Gulf County is less than $31,816
annually. One-time costs for rulemak-
ing including staffing, advertising,
professional fees, travel, and notice
for three public hearings, inclusive, is
estimated to be approximately $24,277.
Upon reestablishment of the Gulf
County Coastal Construction Control
Line, construction, excavation or al-
teration on property seaward of such
line will be subjectto the requirements
of Section 161.053, Florida Statutes and
Chapter 16B-33, Florida Ad-
ministrative Code.
Thus, developers of property will in-
cur higher construction and
regulatory costs and will benefit only
as members of the general public or
only if they intend to live in the con-
structed units. Owners of developed
property will directly benefit through
lower insurance premiums, a lessened
chance of damage to property, and a
lower probability of damage from ad-
jacent properties. The general public
will not bear direct costs and will
receive' certain benefits, including
preservation of the beach-dune
system, less damage due to storm
waves, and lower costs for disaster
relief. This rule has no economic im-
pact on those properties seaward of
Sthe existing Gulf County Coastal.Con-
struction Control. Line, as established
in 1975.
A HEARING WILL BE HELD DUR-
ING THE REGULAR MEETING OF
THE GOVERNOR AND CABINET
SITTING AS THE HEAD OF THE
DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL
RESOURCES AT THE TIME, DATE
AND PLACE SHOWN BELOW:
Date and Time: January 21, 1986 -
