Building Starts Up


Dramatic Increase Shown A


Gulf County had a veritable building boom
during the past year, according to the records of
Gulf County Building Department director,
Dewayne Manuel and Port St. Joe City Auditor
and Clerk, Alden Farris.
Manuel, who takes care of building permits,
inspections and keeping contractors within the
limits of accepted building practices throughout
the county and in Wewahitchka, said both of his
responsible areas showed an increase in building
during the past year.
Manuel said there were a total of 372 new
housing units constructed in his jurisdiction
during 1985, at an estimated cost value of some
$21,170,000, indicating an increase of over $5
million from the previous year.
Even during 1984, Gulf County thought it had
a record high in construction, but 1985 topped
even that record high.
Manuel said many of the new housing units
were of the "Townhouse" or "Condominium"
type in the beaches areas in Gulf County, but
indicated there was a larger number of single
family units built this past year than in the
previous year. "With the easing off of the
interest rate, I feel we will see even a greater
upsurge of single family units in the coming
year", Manuel said.
Most of the multiple family structures are
still being built in the beaches areas. "We saw
seven new housing starts in Wewahitchka last


year, which is a good number in one year for a
community the size of Wewa", Manuel said.
There were several single family units built in
Port St. Joe, too. As a matter of fact, most of the
35 to 40 single family units were built in Port St.
Joe and Wewahitchka", the building officer said.
Manuel said, that of the 372 construction
permits his office listed (which did not include
those issued inside the City Limits of Port St.
Joe) only 49 were for renovation purposes.
PORT ST. JOE BUILDING
Port St. Joe didn't see nearly the building
splurge' the county did, but Clerk Alden Farris'
office reports building permits of $1,792,987
issued during the past year. Clerk Farris said
that was a small increase over the past year and
reflected a slow but steady growth here in the
city.
Farris predicted the figures would be
greater next year, with two new areas of home
building lots being opened up for construction
early this year. Lots on Gautier Memorial Lane,
Garrison Avenue and the opening of Forest Park
Avenue and extension of' MHINit avenue will
account for a good deal of building activity in the
year to come.
SEES EVEN MORE
Manuel said he predicted an increase in
single family units being built during the year to
come. "With home mortgage interest rates


ll Over County
coming down, more people are going to build an
individual home. We can already see this trend
here in Gulf county."
Manuel said the declining interest rates
should also spur other types building too. "An
increase in Wewahitchka and the completion of
the new subdivisions here in Port St. Joe,
opening up more than 40 prime home building
lots is going to have a big impact on building here
in Gulf county in the year to come."
TO OPPOSE ZONE
Manuel said he would be in Tallahassee
January 21 to oppose new building zone lines
proposed by the Department of Natural
Resources.
"In the past, very few permits have been
issued to build in the control zones, except in the
St. Joe Beach area, where a few have been
issued. Our people have tended to shy away from
the danger zones for building because they have
a lot of money invested in a structure at the
beach and can't afford to have it washed away or
broken up by a storm. Economics of waterfront
building have done more to protect the area than
any building control zone could ever do", the
building inspector said.
"I feel the control zone is just another chip at;
the freedom of Americans to do what they want'
to do, or can afford to do, with their property and:
I'm opposed to it", Manuel said.


City to Explore Divestiture of Police Department


Mayor Pate Says

the city's Police Department with the
Gulf County Sheriff's Department, if a
study of the matter proves it imay be

Mayor Frank Pate recommended
the matter be closely studied by the
Commission in'the next few weeks to :
determine whether or: not thb move
should be made.' .
In revealing his thoughts on :the
matter Tuesday, Pate said he had
talked informally with Gulf County'
Sheriff Al Harrison aboutthe possibil-
ity and said Harrison was receptive to
the idea, if the city and: county could
reach an agreement concerning the
responsibilities of each governmental
body.
The Commission originally thought.
of the same arrangement nearly two
years ago with then Sheriff Ken
Murphy. With the approach of the
elections in the fall of 1984, the matter
was dropped for awhile. In the
meantime, acting Chief Robert Maige
was engaged to re-build the depart-
ment ard the matter was put on the
back burner until just Tuesday when
Mayor Pate revived the issue.
Pate said, in making his presenta-
tion to ,the Commission, "I feel the
move would save the City a good deal
of money and solve a few problems,
also".
When the city first approached
Sheriff Murphy about the idea, it was
to turn city equipment and men over
to the Sheriff's Department and pay

Water Tank Graffiti Authors

Caught; Punishment Is Set
A combined investigative effort on the part of the Gulf County Sheriff's
Department and the Port St. Joe Police Department solved the case of the
defaced water tower here in Port St. Joe last week. The tank at the top of
the tower had been painted with graffiti during the Christmas holidays only
days after a crew of tank maintenance men had just finished repainting it.
Officers of the Sheriff's Department and Police Department put the
blame for the graffiti on three older boys, who admitted to the act.
Mike White, Chief Deputy Sheriff for Gulf County and Police Chief
Robert Maige said this week the three boys will be punished and the city
will be reimbursed for re-painting the tank to cover up the graffiti. White
said the three boys will be forced to pay for the re-painting and must
perform 50 hours of public service as their punishment for the act.
In the meantime, the City of Port St. Joe is placing shielding, cages and
locks on the tower and its legs to prevent anyone else from climbing the
tower in the future.

Truck Overturns Causing Injuries to Driver


Nolan Curtis Harrell of Pelham,
Georgia received only minor leg
injuries when this ore truck overturp-
ed at White City Monday morning.
According to Florida Highway
Patrol Trooper Bill Godwin, Howell
was headed north with his truck
loaded with dolomite. In White City,
he overtook L. C. McKinney of
Carrabelle, driving a pick-up truck.


McKinney started to turn left at Joe
Avenue and looked in his rear view
mirror, seeing Harrel's truck follow-
ing. McKinney had already signaled
for the turn, but changed his mind and
decided to allow Harrell to pass.
Harrell thought McKinney was going
-to turn left and had started to go
around him on the right side. When
McKinney came back into the lane,


Harrell couldn't slow down fast
enough, so took to the right shoulder
with his truck, which overturned on
the embankment.
Harrell was taken to Gulf Pines
with his injuries and treated.
Godwin said no charges were filed
in the accident, but McKinney was
charged for driving without a license.

The Gulf County School Board,
principally its Superintendent, B.
Walter Wilder, will be interviewing
coaching prospects for Port St. Joe
High School for the remainder of this
month.
Wilder told The Star Tuesday
evening, the Board has some 40
applicants for the job, which have
been weeded down to the 10 top
prospects in the opinion of the School
Board. "I'll be interviewing these
JLi prospects the remainder of this week

Goff received serious burns in the
fire about the arms and legs and was
taken to Gulf Pines Hospital for
treatment, by Gulf County Ambulance
Service. Goff is still hospitalized with
his burn injuries.


"It isn't an easy job. We don't
have much experience at this sort of
thing. We've only done it once since I
have been in office here in Gulf
County. We want to do the job right so
we can continue our reputation of low
turn-over", the Superintendent said.


The Superintendent said Port St.
Joe's football record over the past few
years has made the job of attracting
qualified applicants easier. "People
know we run a quality program here


and they want to be a part of it", he
said.

Kesley Colbert's Country Column


It Will be A Hot Day In January


How are you coming with
your New Year's Resolutions?
Lost that thirty pounds yet?
Said something nice about
your mother-in-law? Spent
more time with the kids Now,
I'm not much on New Year's
Resolutions, as a matter of
fact, I don't ever remember
making one. It's not that I
haven't needed to make some
changes it's just that I've
always felt that I'd wait till it
got a little warmer to get
started on them. This year is
a little different in that I've


thought about making a New
Year's Resolution. Now, pay.
attention, I said I was
thinking about making a
resolution. The New Year's
Resolution that I have in
mind is to start thinking
about giving up chewing
tobacco. Now, did you get all
of that right?I'm contemplat-
ing a New Year's Resolution
by which I would start
figuring on maybe the possi-
bility that at some futuer
date during the New Year I'd
quit chewing. That's as defi-


nite as some other New
Year's Resolutions I've
heard about and a lot
easier to keep.
We used to meet Mr.
Goddard and his rolling store
down at Sugar Creek. When
he slowed down to ford the
creek, we'd hop aboard and b
the time he reached the other
side he'd have about half a
dozen morning fresh eggs
and we'd have a slab of that
R.T. Junior Chewing Tobac-
co. You talk about. your
"warning label". Someone


should have written across
that R.T. Junior "Take two
aspirins before inserting."
Now, boys, I don't know if
you remember that old fash-
ioned slab tobacco or not; but
I'm here to tell you it was
some strong stuff. It sure
wasn't "watered" down like
so much of the tobacco today.
I should have quit after my
first round with R.T. Junior.
I was fifteen and playing
third base for the town team.
Most everyone else on the
ball team was much older


COLBERT
and they most all chewed.
Bobby Jack Cantrell was the
next youngest guy on the
team and he was twenty four.
I figured I needed to fit right
in so when Birddog Reed
passed the Warren County
twist around I bit off a good
size chew and passed it on
down the dugout. We were
playing Frog Jump (you can
liik it up) that day and they
always had a pretty good
team. Along about the third
inning I had that Warren
County worked up just about
right. One of those Hinson
brothers (I don't remember
which one, but they all could
hit) smoked one of those low
line drives right at me. I
dropped the glove down to
smother that short hop that I
knew was coming. It didn't
come. The ball hit something
in that cow pasture and
bounced straight up. It hit me
right in the chest. I swallow-
ed all of Warren County.
By the time the inning was
over I didn't know which
dugout was ours. Bobby Jack
kinda helped me get off the
field. All of a sudden I was
very, very hot. I still remem-
ber trying to lean against
those old concrete blocks in
the shade of that dug out
trying to cool off a little. My
head and my stomach were
both swimming like crazy,
but they weren't even in the
same pond. Boy howdy, I
have never felt like that
before or since. For about the
first fifteen minutes I thought
I was going to die the next
fifteen, I wanted to. That was
the day that I should have
stopped chewing.
I chewed a lot of Brown
Mule and Days Work back in
the early days can't find
much of that around today.
And it came in handy a time
or two. Like the time me and
David knocked "'down the
hornet's nest at the big ditch.
We got stung a few times
before we could get to Mr.
Archie Moore's pond. We
stayed in that water till.we
were sure they were gone
and then we crawled out on
the bank and slapped some
wet Brown Mule on the
stings. Didn't even swell. I
remember one time LaRenda
Bradfield and Pam Collins
wanted' to go down to the
ditch with us. Shoot-a-mile,
girls at the big ditch? We
pulled out a plug of Brown
Mule, bit off a chew, passed it
over to the girls and Ricky
said "Everybody chews at
the big ditch." LaRefda
remembered that she had to
help her mother with supper
and Pam all of a sudden

Taking Our First Tentative Steps Into the Unknown Future of New Year


I FEEL SORT of like Columbus
might have felt when he started on his
journey to the new world back in 1492.
Old Chris didn't know where he
was going and he didn't realize when
he got there. He was travelling blind,
but he acted like he knew where he
was going and what he was doing all
the time.
That's the way it is with me,
starting this new year of 1986. I am on
my way, under full sail, but I don't
really know where I'm headed or
when I'll get there.
I hope I have a good trip along the
way during 1986, and I hope you do
too. It has started off in a satisfactory
manner. I had occasion to have to date
something on the first day of the year
and I put down "1986" on the first try.
That's at least a positive first step
into 1986.
The year started off with a good
day and some good weather. It wasn't
too cold and it didn't rain.
Even so, it was a peculiar day. All
Wednesday not spent putting out a
newspaper are peculiar days to me.
They seem just like a Saturday. Then
along comes Thursday and I have two


Monday in one week. Considering the
way people regard Mondays, I don't
know if I should be thinking so positive

or not. Anything which would inflict

THE NEW YEAR brought old
Shad Phantry back home.
Of course, I have been expecting
him back ever since he moved off
nearly two years ago. I even saved the
heading for his column, stuck up on
the wall in front of my make-up table
where I could pluck it off on a
moment's notice and put it back into


and vanishing cream. There is none of
the gunk which the sweet gender put
on their faces, hands and whatever.
My make-up table is the table
where we make-up the paper here at
The Star.
In front of this table is a wall with
all sorts of things stuck on it which
might be used on occasion someday.
There are things such as the word
"Sale" in a half dozen different sizes
and type styles. There are logos.and


The only trick to using the wall in
front of my make-up table is being
able to find what you want.
It's bound to be there...just find it!
But back to Shad.
It was not very likely that anyone
who had been raised in the sandhills
north of Pensacola, then exposed for
more than a year to the sand of Port
St. Joe would stay gone for very long.
If you have read The Star for very


long, you know that Shad, like Kesley,

comes from a background which isn't
very conducive to big cfty life. They
Need to be where it's alright to take off
your shoes in church if your feet hurt.
+++++
IN'ADDITION TO Shad coming
home and getting right back to work
with the writing of his column, came
the actions of my President when he
let it be known the United States was
considering going to Libya and
kicking tail if those terrorists didn't
leave our people alone around the
world.
All of us here on the editorial staff
of The Star Understand this kind of
diplomacy. When you say it in plain
words without all that diplomatic
gobbledygook, you and everybody
else understands what you are talking
about.
Even Shad and Kes.
Plain words just can't be beat
when you try to explain the fact of life
(or future) to someone.
Even Moammar understood the
words because he immediately denied
he had said the terrorists were heroes.


He even denied he was responsible for
most of the terrorist tactics in the
world, when he had been proud of the
reputation just a few days before.
Somehow or other the President's
blunt statement, warning Libya of
what is to come if things didn't change
sort of smacks of ball-pean diploma-
cy.
+++++
YESSIR, I LIKE the way 1986 has
started out.
A good day, Shad back, my
President not taking any crap off
those camel drivers in Libya (finally)
and a natural reaction toward writing
the proper date the first time around.
What more could a person ask for
in a new year?
The only thing it would take to
make 1986 one of the years with
vintage starts-a banner year among
banner years-would be for the
Atlanta Braves to announce they have
traded for a 20-game winner on their
pitching staff. The first week in the
history of 1986 would go down in the
record books then, as the week the
World Series pennant was brought to
the south.

County

The emergency telephone number
,"911" is being installed across the
nation ad is now in about all the
counties in Florida.
The nation-wide emergency call
number has become familiar to most
everyone and enables people to call
for help in various kinds of emergency
without having to sort out the
different emergency agencies to find
the proper place to call in case of
distress.
The Panhandle is about the last
place in Florida which doesn't have
the service installed and working.
Bay County and Franklin County
are currently involved in installing
the system, but Gulf County has not
started, nor given its approval to
begin the procedure.
Linda Bordelon, External Affairs
manager of St. Joseph Telephone and
Telegraph Company, spoke to the
Rotary Club last Thursday, describ-
ing the system, how it would work and
how it would be paid for under new
rules which were recently passed by
the Federal Communications Com-
mission.
"I have been reluctant to try and
promote the system because some
might look on my efforts as being an


Asked If
attempt to' create a big revenue
producer for the phone company.
Actually, it won't make us a dime and
will probably cost us money in the
long run. It's a service which is
needed in Gulf County, however, and
the phone company can't just put it in.
It has to be an activity of the County
Commission."
NEW RULES APPLY
Mrs. Bordelon said new rules and
regulations allow the phone company
to levy up to 50c per month per phone
number for a period of 18 months to
pay for the installation of the system.
The money derived from this source
of revenue would be used to re-pay the
county for any expense it might have
in getting ready for institution of the
system and to pay for any special
equipment which might have to be
installed with the system.
Mrs. Bordelon said that along
with having one central number which
can be used to call for any emergency
rather than look up the proper number
for the particular emergency you
might have, it can also have the
capability of telling the dispatcher
who has called and from what location
the call originated. Mrs. Bordelon
said this capability would have

I'm not one to make new year resolutions. I did at
one time but it was long ago.
The main reason, I think, is that when I did make
them, I somehow seem to break them. I can't ever
remember making ofie that I kept for over one month. A
week would probably be much closer.
Another reason is that it's so depressing for me to
promise myself something and then, in the twinkling of
an eye, break that promise. After all, I'm the most
important person to myself. When I break a promise to
myself it's much harder on me than anyone.
I took exception this year and made one resolution.
And, I'm as serious about it as a country preacher is
about Sunday dinner. If you don't think I'm going to keep
this resolution, just you hide and watch. It is as follows:
I, Wendell Campbell, do hereby resolve, on this first
day of January, in the year of our Lord, nineteen
hundred and eighty-six, that I will, to the very best of my
ability, enforce the following ordinance in our home.
"There will be no more than one person in one
bathroom at any one time, except in the case of an
extreme emergency. In the case of an extreme emer-
gency (and I do mean extrenief) no more than two (2)
Persons will be allowed. And, I hope I ain't one of them!"-
It wasn't bad sharing a bathroom with eighty other
people when I was in college, because I had to. I didn't
mind going in the wind and cold when I was in the
Mississippi Foreign Legion. But now we own a two-bath
home, with full facilities in both,. and where does
everyone go? Straight as a string to mine; and always,
when I have an emergency!
For instance, last Sunday morning I volunteered to
do the breakfast dishes so everyone could get ready for
Sunday School and be out of my way. We were running
late but it doesn't take me long if I have clear sailing.
After I had finished the Mr. Mom work (it took about
twenty minutes), I rushed to my bathroom to shave,
shower and getready. When I opened the door I though I
had walked in on a family reunion. My youngest son was
brushing his teeth, my daughter was brushing her hair
and my wife was putting on her makeup. My oldest son
was not there but only because he was out of town on a
trip I couldn't afford.
If he had been within striking distance, I'm certain
he would have been in there too.
Our Sunday School class could have met in the other
bathroom.
January 1, 1986, I installed a dead-bolt'lock on my
bathroom door. I carry the key in a secret place on my
body. Even if I'm strip-searched no one can find it.
Inside the bathroom, within easy reach of the
bathtub, potty and lavatory is a baseball bat, a stun-gun
and a small but powerful cannister of-teargas. There is
also a two-day supply of dry food in case I become
surrounded.
Out back I will have a two-seater outhouse erected
with a mirror on the inside of the one door. There will be
no running water but I will have a bag of lime and a fly
sticker will be hanging from the ceiling. I believe in
going first class!
It's up to them to find their own Sears Roebuck
catalog!

83, passed away Sunday at

They ,
considerable value to trace emergen-
cy situations where children call in
and cannot give details or in the in-
stance of elderly people who might
need assistance but can't find the
right number to call or be incapable of
talking when an emergency station is
reached.
The key to getting the system
installed would be for the county to
give a name to all streets, and a
number to all dwellings or buildings in
the county. "This would pin-point the
emergency when a call came in", Mrs.
bordelon said. Any expense the county
incurred in performing this task
would be re-inbursed with the 50c per
month charge to the phone installa-
tion.
NO EXPENSE TO COUNTY
After the 18 months of charging
phone numbers up to 50c per month
to pay for the installation, there would
be no charge to the customer for the
service. "Actually, the county may
make money on the installation. They
are paying for emergency phone
service now and the cost to continue
the "911" service would probably be
less than they are now paying for
emergency numbers throughout the
county", Mrs. Bordelon said.

(ish to Use '911' Number


The speaker said she is currently
working up a to-the-penny monthly
charge for Franklin county, who has
said they want all the features
available under the "911" program,
including the automatic locater. "It
looks like their 18 month charge is
going to be less than the 50c maximum
allowed tuder the new FCC law".
Mrs. Bordilon said she didn't have the
final penny figure as yet, but it was
almost certain the amount would be
less than 50c per month.
The phone company executive
said that if the County Commission
decides to go along with the program,
each phone outlet would be billed up to
50 cents per month-whatever is
required up to the 50c maximum to
pay for initial installation-and turn
what money is necessary over to .the
County to pay for their part of the
expenses. There would be no need to
amend the county budget to pay for
the system.
TIME LIMIT INVOLVED
"The thing about the whole
program is that there is a time limit
on this arrangement for financing",
Mrs. Bordelon said. "A few years ago,

services at no cost to the county. The
current financing method of allowing
phone numbers subscribers to pay for
installation over an 18 month period,
exires on December 31, 1988," she
said.
The speaker said the key to the
project getting off the ground is for


people in Gulf County to approach
their County Commissioner and tell
him or them they want the system.
"There's nothing like public opinion to
get a job done and I imagine they
would appreciate hearing whether or
not the people want this important
service".

the rest of Florida and the
nation in celebrating the
birthday of Dr. Martin Lu-
ther King, Jr., during the
coming week. Mayor Frank
Pate signed a proclamation
Tuesday, declaring that
"The City of Port St. Joe,
Florida, will recognize the
contributions of Dr. Martin
Luther King, Jr., by partici-
pating in a series of city-wide
activities beginning January
15, 1986 and ending January
15, 1987."
The overall goal of the
observance is to .:involve
citizens of Port St. Joe in
activities that would facili-
tate and reflect on the
principles of racial equality
and non-violent social change
espoused by Dr. King.
Committees composed of a
cross section of the commun-
ity have been working for
more than two months plan-
ning activities for the com-
memorative celebration.
Despite the fact that mem-
bers of the committee do not
receive remuneration from
their service, they have
expressed a willingness and
a desire to serve throughout
the year-long celebration.

TOTAL EYE CARE
Part 2
Last time we described the
first steps in a compete eye
examination. It continues
with the following tests:
The doctor uses a set of
prisms and lenses to test
your EYE MUSCLES and
their ability to turn your
eyes in different directions
to help them focus accurate-
ly. This test determines
whether or not you have bi-
nocular vision.
The doctor measures the
position of the eyes to each
other to determine if they
are in NORMAL ALIGN-
MENT.
In a subjective examina-
tion, a phoropter is used to
test your responses to a
variety of lenses in the trad-
itional, "which is clearer?"
test.
Using a stereoscope, a FU-
SION test is administered to
determine if your eyes
possess this skill.
A PERCEPTION EVA-
LUATION may then be
made to ascertain if a learn-
ing or reading problem ex-
ists.

OCCUPY SCHOOL AGAIN


In other action at their meeting
Tuesday night. Superintendent Wilder
told the Board storm damage had
been repaired at the Highland View
School to the point where classes
could be resumed at the school.
The Highland View School was
completely flooded inside its building
by high tides from hurricane Kate in
late November.
Wilder estimated the building


sustained some $25 to $30,000 in
damages from the rising water. "We
still have some $10,000 worth of
damages to repair, but the building
has been repaired to the point where
we can get our classes back into their
rooms", he said.
While the school was being
repaired in December, classes were
meeting in the education wing of the
First Baptist. Church.

"If a property owner does
not send or bring in his
signed exemption card, the
law will not allow our office
to give the owner exemption

has been living there for 30
years". Colbert said.
SAlong with the exemption
comes the responsibility of
the owner to sign up for the
tax-free status no later than
5:00 p.m., March 1, 1986.


In Florida. the homestead
exemption is enough for a
property owner to be inter-

said. "every year there are
those who either just don't

different occasions in the
past ten days. It all started
when poles were installed for
a fence. This fence is neces-

roller skates, and skate-
boards from hitting one of
our seniors and causing
injury. The Senior Citizens
Center is a non-profit organi-

second was the removal of

of December, a crew instal-
led the entire fence, the day
after New Years when the
office employees arrived
there was an entire 10 foot
section destroyed by wire
cutters or some other similar
tool.
I am writing this article to
let everyone know about the
flagrant vandalism to the
senior citizen's property.
This fence was installed at
great cost, and was designed
to prevent injury to any of
our dear clients. It was not
placed there to be nasty or
offensive to the-people in the
community.

responsible for these das-

(HTLV-III). One of the im-
meidate benefits of the deve-
lopment of this antibody test
is the screening procedure
now employed by blood
banks on donated blood and
plasma. The point of this is to
insure that in the course of
giving a blood or plasma
transfusion one does not
endanger the recipient with
possible introduction of blood
or plasma in which the virus
is present. All blood and
plasma collecting facilities
have begun routine testing
for this antibody and all
blood found to be reactive is
discarded.
Research proceeds a pace
in studying drugs for treat-
ment of AIDS and in accumu-
lating the basic information
-about the HTLV-IHI virus
that is, needed, in order to
develop a vaccine for preven-
tion of AIDS. At this time
there is not a successful
treatment drug nor is there a
vaccine against the virus.
Both are reasonable hopes
for the future, but the ques-
tion of when is unanswerable.
One thing that has been
established about the HTLV-
III virus is that it is not
apparently transmitted by
casual contact, such as hand-
shaking or breathing the
same air as someone who is
infected with the virus.
Transmission is by intimate
contact (especially sexual
contact between homosexual
males) or by exchange of
body fluids as, for in-
stance, an exchange of blood
between two intravenous
("I.V.") drug users who use
the same hypodermic needle.
And there is one other way
that the virus can be trans-
mitted, namely from an
infected woman to her fetus


or newborn baby. Such an
infant born with the virus
faces the same dangers as an
older person with HTLV-III
infection and about 1 percent
of all AIDS cases in the U.S.
have, in fact, been such
congenital cases.
Fear of AIDS is under--
standable since it is a fatal
disease and a newly recog-
nized disease about which
there is still much to be
learned. But one need not be
afraid of "catching" AIDS
simply by being around a
person with AIDS, a person
with ARC (AIDS-related
complex), or some person
who may be carrying the
HTLV-III virus but not even
show signs of sickness.
To date there have been no
cases ofAIDS in G4lf County. :

ment of Natural Resources, for the purpose of
considering the adoption of Administrative
Rule 16B-26.016, reestablishing the Gulf Coun-
ty Coastal Construction Control Line. The ef-
fect will substantially relocate the coastal

2tp 1/9 RULE TITLE: Description of the Gulf
County Coastal Construction Control
moving: Line.
PURPOSE AND EFFECT: The pur-
150 or pose is to reestablish the Gulf County
mach- Coastal Construction Control Line.
qu n The effect will substantially relocate
ueen the coastal construction control line
, $25; laidward of the current line in order to
runs more accurately define that portion of
It 1/9 the beach-dune system which is sub-
ject to severe fluctuations based upon
right the 100-year storm surge and storm
waves, and thus define the area within
a with which special siting and design con-
lilboat siderations are required to ensure pro-
'ooden section to the beach-dune system; pro-
posed structures or existing struc-
1223 or tures, and adjacent-properties.
SUMMARY: The proposed rule will
set forth the legal description of the
cliner. coastalconstruction control line front-
157. ing the Gulf of Mexico in Gulf County.
Construction, excavation, and altera-
o good tion on property seaward thereof will
require a permit from the Department
of Natural Resources pursuant to Sec-
tion 161.053, Florida Statutes, and
tires, Chapter 16B-33, Florida Administra-
$135. tive Code.
.m. RULEMAKING AUTHORITY: Sec-
p.m. tion 370.021(1), Florida Statutes.
LAW IMPLEMENTED: Section
e seen 161.053, Florida Statutes.
all for SUMMARY OF THE ESTIMATE OF
ECONOMIC IMPACT: The estimated
cost to the Departmentforadministra-
fc 1/2 t~oi of the coastal construction control
line program for the affected proper-
on hedt ties in Gulf County is less than $31,816
annually. One-time costs for rulemak-
.tioner. ing including staffing, advertising,
wo car. professional fees, travel, and notice
1612 or for three public hearings, inclusive, is
harle estimated to be approximately $24,277.

ministrative Code.
k table Thus, developers of property will in-
k ta ue r higher construction and
U after regulatory costs and will benefit only
tfc 1/2 as members of the general public or
.only if they intend to live in the con-
gas structed units. Owners of developed
c property will directly benefit through
en cab- lower insurance premiums, a lessened
1. Call chance of damage to property, and a
2tc 1/2 lower probability of damage from ad-
jacent properties. The general public
will not bear direct costs and will
'V and receive certain benefits, including
equip- preservation of the beach-dune
system, less damage due to storm
tennis, waves, and lower costs for disaster
re sup- relief. This rule has no economic im-
ffe, cl- pact on those properties seaward of
the existing Gulf County Coastal Con-
Sstrution Control Line, as established
