Weather Continues Assault on Gulf

A tornado early Thursday morning of last week
ripped off a portion of the roof of the Wonder Bar at St. Joe
Beach and damaged the townhouse next door, when it
touched down for only a few seconds. Part of the roof from
the building is shown lying in the foreground. The fl ing
debris also damaged one of the autos shown parked in the

Changes In the County


Mother Nature apparently wasn't satisfied
with sending three hurricanes into Gulf County
in a three month period as last year was
winding down. For the past week, drenching
rains and even a tornado or two has pounded
the county, causing damage to several
buildings in the St. Joe Beach area.
As day, 'was starting to break last
Thursday 4 tornado or tornadoes hit the St.
Joe Beacffarea, damaging several buildings
and property.
Most of the damage was confined to the
vicinity a jacent to St. Joseph's Bay, where
the Wonder Bar ,and a t6ownhouse next door
suffered extensive damage from a twister.
John Hanson, owner of the Wonder Bar says he
believes it was a water spbut which. took off


about a third of the roof of his building, sucked
paneling off the- alls and lifted tables and
chairs off the floor when it struck just a few
minutes before 7:00 a.m. Thursday.
"I was in the building at the time and it
was weird", Hanson said. "It only lasted a
very short while and then it was all over", he
said. Hanson said the twister lifted heavy
redwood beams from the building and tossed
one on top of his car outside. "It picked up one
of those heavy beams and carried it all the way
to the townhouse next door, which is at the
opposite end of my buildingg",. Has'ina ,aid..
The building next dopr is a townhouse
owned by John Novak of California.
Other homes farther up the beach have
also reported damages from the twister which'


hit the area.
Although rough weather was experienced
in Gulf County, there was none of the intensity
which has hit surrounding counties. Gulf had
little to no flooding and had only 4.7 inches of
rainfall in the Port St. Joe area. The rainfall
was spread over a period from Thursday of
last week until Tuesday morning of this week,
when,some area counties were getting as much
as -12 inches in a day.
According to.rain gauge watcher, Emily
Simmons, the record in rainfall in February
was set in 1966, when the area experienced 7:6
inches in a like period.
In February of 1985, there were only 1.5
inches recorded for the entire month.


County Attorney William J.
Rish advised the Gulf County
Commission Tuesday.itht he
felt it was only a matteir'of a
few days before the county
would be facing the same
type suit which has been filed
against the Gulf County
School Board. The suit would
call for the courts to mandate
a single member commission
district arrangement for the
county..
The School Board hadlsuch
a suit filed against it two
weeks ago.
The suits, filed by repre-
sentatives of the black race,
claim the present method of
electing local government
officers are so structured to
prevent blacks from being
elected to the several official
positions in the county.

Support Gathered to Name Bridge for Tapper


County attorney William J. Rish and"
School Board member Gene Raffield kicked
off a campaign this week to gain local
support to persuade the Florida Lesiglature
to designate the proposed ,new Highland
View high rise bridge as the "George G.
Tapper Bridge", in honor of the former state
senator and resident of Port St. Joe, who has
worked long and hard to get the bridge built.
Tapper, chairman of the Port St. Joe
Port Authority, has guided the bridge
project almost single-handed for nearly 10
years and construction is now about to
begin.
Originally, replacement of the current


draw bridge was being promoted as a
remedy for.the many times the bridge fails
to function, tying up traffic for hours and
sometimes days at a time. Tapper and his
Port Authority then started promoting the
bridge as a nucleus for a giant new port for
Port St. Joe, which would give the city a
better outlet to water shipping and
re-vitalize an industry which has been a part
of Port St. Joe for'150 years '
Rish and Raffield are currently 'ap-
proaching every civic group and govern-
mental agency in the county to secure
resolutions of support for the naming of the'
bridge. "We have just started on this


endeavor, but so far, we have met with
nothing but enthusiastic approval", Raffield
said.
Tuesday, Rish asked the Gulf County
Commission to approve the plan and they
unanimously gave their support to a
resolution calling for the designation by the
Legislature.
"1 don't think we'll have any problem at -
all with the Legislature doing this thing, if
we approach them with a united request that
they do so", Rish said.
He told the Commission Tuesday he was
expecting to receive resolutions of support
from every government group in the county.


Work has already started on the new
bridge, which will be unique in the state. The
Highland View bridge will have a waterway
span of ,125 feet and will have a vertical
clearance of 75 feet in the air. This will make
the entrance to the Gulf County Canal
accessible to sea-going barges. According to
Tapper, who negotiated with the Depart-
ment of Transportation for the over-size
opening, it will be one of only two bridges
with this capability on the Gulf Coast.
The extra capacity is expected .to aid
current water shippers already in Port St.
Joe and enhance the proposed port project
as it is developed in the future.


Cabinet Turns A Deaf


Ear to Pleas for Relief


Florida's Cabinet imposed
stricter boundarie- for all of
the coastal propel 'n Gulf
County. The move the
Cabinet last week completed
the new coastal zone con-
struction designation after a
portion of the coastal proper-
ty had its designation delay-
ed for a few weeks.


It was just two weeks ago
that the Cabinet agreed to
investigate a claim made by
St. Joe Paper Company and
the McNeill interests that a
portion of their coastal pro-
perty should not be included
in the new zone because it did
not meet the guidelines as set
down by the state of Florida.


Annual Chamber

Meeting Monday
The Port St. Joe, Gulf County Chamber of
Commerce will have its annual dinner meeting
Monday evening, February 17, with the main order of
business being the installation of a new slate of officers
for the coming year.
The annual dinner will be held in the Commons
Area of the Port St. Joe High School, with the Lions
Club preparing steaks for the affair.
The speaker for the annual meeting this year will
be Jim Hollingsworth, a professional business
consultant of Tallahassee. In addition to Mr.
Hollingsworth's address, a short film is scheduled to be
presented to the Chamber which will be used, as an
advertising tool in the future for acquainting
prospective businesses, industry or tourist interests to
locate in Gulf County.

Bill Sumner will be completing his term as
president of the Chamber and will preside over the
meeting Monday. The new slate of officers will be
sworn into their positions at the end of the meeting.
In addition to the officers, there will also be three
new directors who will assume their duties with the
Board.


The property owners
claimed state rules governed
only property facing the Gulf
of Mexico and the Atlantic
Ocean. St. Joe Paper said its
property faced St. Joseph
Bay and the McNeill's said
their property was adjacent
to Indian Pass.
Representatives from both
parcels of land argued again
last week that their property
should be exempt from the
stricter building rules of the
new zone area, but to no
avail.
The new rules, which had
been postponed at an earlier
hearing, were imposed on the
property.
Robert Dean, director of
the Division of Beaches and
Shores, said the property in
question had dunes and bea-
ches which were shaped by
the Gulf of Mexico and were
part of an interconnected
system.
The Cabinet adopted the
new' control line without
discussion.
Fred Kent, an attorney for
St. Joe Paper Company, said
the company may consider
challenging the boundary in
court. "When you establish a
line like they have, you own a
state park", the attorney
said.
Local interests strongly
opposed moving the current
building control line for the
same reasons,

Sewer Rehabilitation Started


A Gainesville contractor started work this week on a
$40,000 project of thoroughly cleaning, inspecting and
making minor repairs to all the 21,780 feet of sewer
collection mains in the City. Griner's A-One Pipeline
Service. Inc., was the successful bidder in the first part of a
two phase project of repairing all the sewer mains in the
city.
The City embarked on the project nearly three years
ago as a part of their program to make the Wastewater
Treatment Plant more efficient to satisfy the demands of
the Environmental Protection Agency and the Florida
Department of Environmental Regulation.
Under the program presently in progress, all the


mains will be flushed out, with deposits of sand (a
problem in Port St. Joe's system) and an X-ray insp
of all the mains to locate any breaks or separation
present project will include the flushing out of the
and a flow and dye test to. see if they are running
after the cleaning.
Tie firm will then bring in an X-ray machine an
it through all the mains, visually inspecting their
locating points which need repair.
The City hopes to eliminate sink holes in the
caused by collapsing mains and to remove poi
infiltration of sand, which clogs the mains on a r
basis.

U:- The shoe has dropped.

'ity have paid their money and

S We can remember being in a
"similar situation several years ago
fin attempting to get the commis-
ssion districts in the county realign-
'ed according to the Florida Sta-
Stutes and having to do the very
.same thing to force the issue.
Of course Florida election law

task, but it seemed to be for the

Better for it.
i- We may be prejudiced about
Ufthat opinion, but we still have it. It
Ehas improved county government,
9it .has saved us money as tax
Payers and it has reduced the clout
,.of special interests of special
geographicall locations from hav-
ig influence beyond their due ...
--and we're not talking about black
j enclaves, either. If anything, the
j present system has given black
enclaves influence beyond their
numbers, simply because they
pretty well stick together when


/
they vote and it results in a
situation in which five ambitious
commissioners cater to their
whims to get that vote.
We're not sure but what a
single member district might not
be the cheapest thing we could do in
our county.
We do not-emphatically-do
not believe it would be a boon for
any race or geographical location.
It would be just the opposite.
If, under a single member
district, a district wanted some-
thing particular done in their area,
the other four divisions could be
selfish and insist that their man,
elected solely by them, deny the
petitioning district its wishes. As
an example, the Beaches Water
System might never have been
built if we had had single member
districts. Unless the Beaches
district could persuade at least
two other districts in the county
they needed the system and there
would be no cost to the other four
districts, it could very well have
been soundly defeated and a need-
ed service would have never been
built.
Whether or not we wind up with
single member districts here in
Gulf County, everyone should
remember-black and white
alike-that it will still take three
votes on any of our Commissions or
Boards to get an action approved.
A "no" voter has to answer only to
his district's constituents.

Did You Ever Roll Your Own?


If there is one person,
place, situation and/or event
that I associate with Valen-
tine's Day-it's Mary E.
Pendleton. Yes sir, when we
get down toward the end of.
the second week in February
my thoughts just naturally
drift back to Mary E. I wish
they were fond memories.
Now, Mary E. Pendleton
did not go trick or treat'en in
October, she didn't color in
her Indians and turkey at
Thanksgiving, I don't think
that she even drew names


with the rest of us at Christ-
.mas but, boy howdy, did she
make up for anything she
might have missed on Valen-
tine's Day. She had that
Valentine Day stuff down to
an art. On or about the 27th
day of January she would
start drawing those hearts.
Now, she wasn't one-of my
favorite people but'I've got
to give credit where credit is
due-ole Mary E. was near
about the best heart drawer
I've ever seen. She'd draw
big ones and little ones,


sometimes, she'd draw one
with an arrow through it;
she'd draw hearts straight
up and hearts kind'a leaning
to one side. And every year
she'd draw one great big,
oversized, gigantic heart
with' an arrow through the
middle. Guess who got that
one?
About the 6th of February
Mary E. would announce
that the heart drawing stage
was over and then she'd get
Pam, Ruth Ann and LaRen-
da to help her and they'd go


into the heart message
stage. You know, they'd
write little sayings on each
heart. The reason it took four
of them was because this
was the complicated part of
the process as they had to
come up with a multitude of
"cute little sayings". They
pooled all of their mental
resources and would write
very original things on each
heart, like "I Love You",
"Be My Valentine", "Love
Always", "Love Me", "You
Are Special", "Love


Monkey's Tail Went Limp


Jean Claude Duvalier, the
president for life of Haiti, is gone
now, the way of all good dictators.
Earlier last week, the hateful
Haitian had been reported to be
leaving his palace and his poor
people behind and taken, off for the
boondocks. ..1
But, he hadn't:
Friday of last week, the .United
States probably earned the aver-
age Haitian's everlasting grati-
tude, when they furnished an
airplane to take the dumpy despot
out of the country and deposit him
in France, out of harm's way.
The world's attention has been
focused for.the past several years.
on what the government of South
Africa has been doing to the South
Africans. The situation they have
created or allowed to be created
there is bad enough, but nothing
nearly so despotic as what Duva-
lier did to his own people.
At least in South Africa, a
goodly part of the misery is caused
by one tribe's jealousy and inhu-
manity to another tribe.. The same
race of people, but a different


family, so to speak. Also, a part of
the situation in South Africa has'
been designed over the -years to
keep the tribes from doing what
they are doing in the news today.
But, Baby Doc is just bad news
from the: word go.
Tak~nga lesson from the ruling,
methods'of his dad, Baby Doc has
ground the Haitians under his heel
until they could take no more.
It's hard to imagine a family
getting along anywhere in the
world today on an average of $150 a
year. That won't even buy beans.
When it's 80 percent of the
population of the nation being
abused in this manner, we can.only
ask why they waited so long to oust
Baby Doc.
When news of his having been
toppled was released, Baby Doc
issued a statement denying the
report, saying, "He was still as
firm and straight as a monkey's
tail".


There was more
resemblance in the
anatomy, also.


than a little
rest of his


COLBERT
Forever". Now you see why
it took all four of them.
About a week before the
big day Mary E. moved into
the heart coloring stage.
Now, they didn't need a color
selection committee as all of
Mary E.'s hearts were red.
They colored before school,
during math and English, at
lunch and any other time
that Mrs. Belle wasn't look-
ing. You know they were
serious during the heart col-
oring stage they'd even
stay in during recess and col-
or. Mary E. didn't let nobody
color on the "big heart" but
her.
On February 12, 1955
Ricky Hale, Bobby Brewer,
Buddy Wiggleton, Jim Bob
Harris and myself gathered
up in the bathroom during
the morning break to discuss
this Valentine stuff. First off
we discovered that we didn't
know what Valentine's Day
was, or why we celebrated it
as a special day. If it was
such a special day then they
ought to dismiss school! At
lunch we went directly over
to where Mary E. was eating
her prunes and asked her
straight out just what is so
special about Valentine's
Day and where did it come
from. She lit up like Mr.
Kinard's windmill did the
time it got struck by lightn-
ing.
She started in about some
guy named St. Valentine and
a goddess named Eros or
something like that and then
she got going on her favorite
subject some little fat guy
with wings that goes around
shooting arrows at people.
She ended up by explaining
how all these people got
together on a February 14
years .and ,ears ago to
celebrate their friendship.
SOne of them brought some
chocolate candy and another
brought a card with a heart
on it and one of them invited
a girlfriend who ate all of the
candy. Isn't it so romantic..
SI thought Mary E. was a'go-
ing to swoon.
That night after supper I
asked my Dad about Valen-
tine's Day. He said it was the
Result of a joint undertaking
by the large candy com-
panies and the greeting card
folks to figure out a way to
unload leftover Christmas
chocolates and cards. He
said they took January to re-
package the candy and touch
up the cards and then they
"unloaded" in February.
Mary E. would not have
thought my Dad a romantic.
The next day Jim Bob
came up with a pretty good

It Was Only Four Days, but A Kidney Stone Made It Seem


IT HAPPENED AGAIN. For the
umpteenth time I have had a week off
.. to spend in the hospital.
I can't figure it out, how every-
time I get a week off, I get to spend it
in a hospital. It's getting downright
exasperating.
If i was sickly or in delicate
health, I could understand it. But here
I am fat and sassy and healthy as a
horse (almost) and everytime I get a.
week off, I spend it in the hospital.
I guess I must not be living right.
Maybe, somewhere deep down in my
psyche is a terrible thought about
someone or other which needs atone-
ment or forgiveness.
Then, maybe, subconsciously, I
just like to spend a week in hospitals.
I know they need the money. And,
with them needing like they do, I just
spread the wealth around and contri-
bute my pound of flesh every so often.
I just wish they would appreciate
it more and not charge me $500 a day
for room, board and probing rights,

were gathering to go to lunch and I
sauntered up and asked. "Which of

For the third time. I could swear I


As I walked out. I told Dr. Wayne,
"I'll see you in your office in a little
bit." He had told me he would not be
the one playing golf Thursday after-
noon.
At 1:00. I was there hurting!
Dr. Wayne came in and said, "Are
you hurting?" His nurse, Kathleen
Grace was right behind him and said,
-Yes' he's hurting. I'll get a shot
ready."


Bless her heart. How did she know
that was just the thing I wanted at that
particular time? I was hurting too bad
to tell her so, and I don't even
remember if I nodded my head in an
affirmative direction or not.
I was so out of.it, by that time, it
didn't even cross my mind to be
embarrassed at baring my butt before
a pretty woman, which I did as she got
that needle ready to jab.
One thing about a kidney stone in
full flight, you don't notice a small
thing like a long needle being stuck in
your bare behind.

TO MAKE A LONG story a little
shorter, the long, sharp needle and a
pill, sort of numbed the kidney stone
and me and off we went to the
Urologist to get my kidneys checked,
since we were getting nowhere with
the usual procedure.
About 5:00 p.m., I wound up in a
Panama City hospital, still strung out
but with the kidney stone getting tired
of running around in my innards and
beginning to quiet down a little.
After two periods of testing and


longer
what the hospital termed five days of
rest, they gave me a bill for $2,200
and sent me home.
Wasn't that nice of them?
I had a nurse, who was about 55 or
60 and she was a sport. Everyone on
the floor knew my problem, when she
sashayed in and shouted about what I
should do with certain containers and
certain bodily ablutions.
She was making my bed one day
and said, "They tell me having a
kidney stone is about as painful as
having a baby."
I have never had a baby, but I was
able to answer with conviction that it'
was considerably worse.
"You're a man", she said. She
tOssed her head back and shot me a
look down her nose through the
bottom of her bifocals and sneered,
"You couldn't know how it hurts a
woman to have a baby".
"I'm sure of one thing, though", I
said. "If having a baby hurt as bad as
having a kidney stone, women would
never have but one child".
"Humph!" she snorted, and pro-
ceeded to short sheet my bed.

SHAD

PHANTRY
by Wendell Campbell





The Prayer
A few weeks ago our Sunday School teacher asked a
question about the effect of prayer and directed it to a
particular lady in our class and remarked, "I'll ask
Donna this because she's the only one in here that
prays."
I resented that statement and told him so. I know for
a fact that Shad prays everyday. Well, almost every day.
Some days he forgets, but it's not often.
Later in the week I was talking to Shad and told him
about the incident. I also inquired about his favorite
prayer; if he had one and what was it. Yes, he did have a
favorite prayer, but the most important thing, he pointed
out, was the fact that he prayed on a regular basis. He
also stated that he thought it important to pray unselfish
prayers. "Too many people pray only when they need or
want something," Shad said. "I don't think the Lord
likes those selfish prayers like he does the ones on a
regular basis," he concluded.
I asked Shad if he would write down his favorite
prayer and let me publish it. He agreed but pointed out
that this was his own prayer and he often prayed it in the
morning, when he first awoke. He asked that no one else
pray this prayer because they might wake up the same
time he did and might confuse the Lord if he heard the
same prayer coming from two directions at the same
time. Anyway, Shad's prayer goes just like this:
A MORNING PRAYER
Thank you, Lord, for this day so fine,
And all the things that I call mine.
This home, my wife, my children too,
All these things I owe to you.
Let me be strong and be, a man,
And make a mark as best I can.
Give me the strength and courage too,
To do the things you would have me do.
If things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
Help me, Lord, to climb the hill.
Let me inspire and help and hope,
And be a lifeline; a saving rope.
And when this day is done and gone,
Let me end it with a song.
A song of joy and peace and love,
I ask this all from you above.
Amen
Shad also said he adheres to the philosophy a friend
related to him some years ago. Shad had asked him if he
thought going to church helped him in his daily life and
in doing things that 'were right. The friend answered,
"Well, it's for certain I ain't gonna' get no better if I
don't go."
My prayer is, "Lord, help our Sunday School
L teacher."

Home Restorer Speaks to Local Historians


Wayne Childers was sworn
in for his third term as
president of the St. Joseph
Historical Society at their
annual banquet meeting Sat-
urday night at the Garden
Center.
Mrs. Betty McNeill will
serve the Society as vice-pre-
sident for the coming year.
Other officers starting new
terms for the historical group
include, Maurell Cumbie,
secretary; Mae Dean, treas-
urer; and Edith Stone, par-
liamentarian.
In reporting to the 50
members and guests present,
vice-president, Mrs. James


McNeill reported that during
the past year, the Society has
become active in the coming
Sesquicentennial celebration
for Calhoun County which is
to be in 1988. Gulf County was
a part of Calhoun County
before being split from the
county in 1925.
In addition, the Society was
active in securing the histor-
ic Beacon Hill Lighthouse
property for the County and
35 acres of former govern-
ment land at Dead Man's
Curve. The Society has also
started making plans to have
some of the old dwellings at
the Cape San Bias lighthouse


area re-located at some time
in the future.
The Society presented Her-
man Jones a plaque of
appreciation for making a set
of railroad wheels recovered
from St. Joseph Bay, avail-
able to the Society for placing
in front of the Port St. Joe
Library. Alan McCulley was
also presented a plaque of
appreciation for aiding Jones
in locating and recovering
the wheels.
Floye Brewton, former res-
ident of Port St. Joe, who is
now in the business of
renovating old historic
homes in the Marianna area,


Floye Brewton, of Marianna, is shown above, as he
presented the program to the historical Society Saturday
night. Brewton, a restorer of historical homes in the
Marianna area, told the historians of some of the results he
has had with his restoration work.

spoke to the Society, telling
them of some of the problems
involved in renovating old
homes and of the rewarding
experience it has turned out
to be to him, personally.
First, Brewton said restor-
ing is expensive and it is time
consuming. "Many of the
products and material pat-
terns used in those days are
no longer available and have
to be literally custom made
to fit the job at hand.
Admitting to rambling in
his presentation, Brewton
said renovation is an expen-
sive process. "It will cost you
at least 20 percent more per
square foot to renovate than
it will to start building from
scratch", he said. "The first
thing a renovator must do is
to find someone to finance
the project and then find a
tenant who will pay the rent
to justify the expenditure".
Brewton said he has reno-
vated six buildings in Mari-
anna, including an old depot
building and five homes.
"They are exactly as they
were first built", he said,
"and all are rented to tenants
who are paying enough rent
to cover the cost of the
renovation".
Brewton said the renova-
tions, if proper guidelines are
followed, will result in a 20
percent tax credit on federal
income taxes. "You are
allowed only one write-off
per year, however", the

CARD OF THANKS
We wish to take this
opportunity to express our
deepest appreciation to
everyone for all the cards,
visits, prayers, flowers, food
and concern shown us during
the recent illness and death
of our father.
The concern shown for us
was a comfort in our time of
sadness. It is friends like all
of you who make living in
Port St. Joe so enjoyable.
May God bless each and
every one of you.

speaker said.
Brewton said he became
interested in the renovation
business as a sideline. "I've
always been interested in
these old houses and I can
now tell you within 10 to 20
years when it was built just
by looking at the material
and how it was put together. I
think the old buildings are a
physical link to the past ...


and can also continue to be of
use today".
Some of the homes Brew-
ton has renovated in Marian-
na are as much as 140 years.
old. "The trick is to decide
which job will pay for itself:
and then determine what has
been done to the house since.
it was originally built before:
beginning a project", he-
said.

Working

in during young people into the
o- work force and aiding em-
ployers in training unskilled
workmen in their businesses,
Bob Howell told the Kiwanis
Club Tuesday.
Introduced as a successor
to the old CETA program, the
government funded opera-
tion is primarily interested in
assisting employers in ab-
sorbing the excess labor
force caused by job losses
due to closures, new em-
ployees into the labor force
and re-training through sal-
ary incentives and direct
training programs such as
furnished by Tom P. Haney
Vocational School.
Howell said the program
will pay up to half an
employees' wages for up to
250 hours in order to get work
experience for their subjects.
"The only criteria for the
employer is that he must give
reasonable assurance that he
t"awil.se thatitidividuat-as a
permanent employee after
the subsidy period is over".
"The idea of PIC is to put
people to work and keep
them working", Howell said.
He said the program is
primarily designed to get
people off the welfare dole
and has certain guidelines
for employees before they
can take advantage of the
program.
Howell said his office
works in the Bay, Jackson,
Washington, Franklin, Gulf,
Liberty, Holmes and Calhoun
county areas. "We have
proven to be successful in

Attend Science Symposium at UofF


Lee Parker, Howard Rich-
ards, and Nancy Stoutamire,
students at Port St. Joe High
School, and Mrs. Jean C.
Peters, math instructor, left
February 2 to attend this
year's Junior Science, En-
gineering and Humanities
Symposium at the University
of Florida. The JSEHS is a
three day meeting concerned
with science, mathematics
and engineering and their
interrelations with the hu-
manities. Several hundred
high school students attend


the event annually on college
campuses throughout the na-
tion.
A variety of events were
attended by the students
including a performance on
the university's huge pipe
organ, a special concern by
the University of Florida
Symphony Orchestra and a
presentation of the play "The
Miss Firecracker Contest".
Each student visited three
research labs, where univer-
sity professors explained and


demonstrated methods and
goals of research.
On the final 'day student
speakers explained their ex-
periments which they had
. &#ducted,.,during the- sum-
mer as part of the Student
Science Training Program.
The symposium concluded on
February 4 with an awards
ceremony in which the most
outstanding students were,
recognized. All students and
teachers received certifi-
cates of participation.

Last week the Episcopal
Diocese of The Central Gulf
Coast met in convention at
Holy Cross Church in Pensa-
cola. This is an annual event
which parallels similar con-
ventions that many 'organ-
ized denominations conduct.
There is nothing unusual
about a Church convention.


They always include worship
opportunities, lengthy re-
ports, committee meetings,
resolutions, parliamentary
procedures, entertainment,
happy renewals of old friend-
ships, and chance meetings
with new acquaintances.
Convention business often
touches on painful budget

items and penetrating emo-
tional issues. Since these are
delicate matters, there are
bound to be zestful disagree-
ments. It migh. be natural,
given these facts, to assume
that issues and intolerance
would sharply divide dele-
gates.
My happy experience has
proven that such an assump-
tion is not warranted. For
several years now I have
been attending these conven-
tions in various parts of the
country. During t':at time I
have heard people propose
resolutions that ranged from
the silly to the profound. I
have heard debates which
were rich with vigor and
emotion. I have been con-
vinced by one speaker, and
then been persuaded to an-
other view by a better
argument from the other
side. I have listened to
composed presentations and
angry rebuttals. I have
laughed with humorous
speakers and I have cried
with those who depict the
tragic issues of life.
But there is one thing that I
have never seen. I have
never seen an issue destroy a
relationship.
Not that honest people
aren't in different camps.
Naturally we often disagree.
It's just that our disagree-
ments don't destroy our
relationships.
In the faith community, we
believe that we are the body
of Christ. And we believe that
even the wrath of hell cannot
destroy that relationship.
Controversy may disclose
our shallowness at times, but
it will never divide those who
are joined by faith in the
family of God.
We had our honest disa-
greements last week. But we
parted with love and hope in
our hearts. Agd we long to be
together again. I am grateful
to God for this unbreakable
relationship.

Local School Targeted to


Accept Exchange Pupils


Assistant principal Chris
Earley said this week that
Port St. Joe High School has
been targeted as a host
school for the education of
foreign students.
Earley said the program is
an arrangement where for-
eign students can come to the
United States, stay with a
local family and attend clas-
ses here for 'a year.
A few years ago, a Brazil-
ian exchange student studied
here for a year, but Earley
said there have been no
foreign students here since
that time.
The assistant principal
said the school system is
currently active in trying to
locate local families who will
agree to furnish room and
board for such a student for
the coming school year. "It's
really an interesting exper-
ience for a family to have one
of these students stay with
them", Earley said.
While the school has been
approved for the exchange
program, it is not a one way
deal. "We can also arrange
for a local student to spend a

HOW IMPORTANT
IS FLOSSING?
Most dental authorities today consider flossing to
be at least almost important as brushing your teeth.
This is because proper use of dental floss will
effectively remove disease-causing bacterial plaque
from areas between the teeth, where a toothbrush
cannot reach.

But, many people with average normal dexterity
find flossing to be difficult and awkward. Some of the
reasons are gagging, the floss gets slippery, fingers
Sget in the way. it takes too much time. Now, as the
importance of flossing is realized new aids to make it
easier are being developed. See our complete dental
aids section.

PSJ, 65; Marianna, 85
The Marianna Bulldogs did
something which no other
team has been able to do this
season. Tuesday night, the
Bulldogs blew the Sharks out
of the gym with a 20 point
margin. The Bulldogs caught
the Sharks with two of its
starters out with the flu and
took advantage of the situa-
tion to make up for some past
barn-burners at the hands of
the Sharks.
Both Josh Jenkins and
Curtis Beard were not in the
line-up Tuesday and the
Sharks felt the lack of their
presence as the Bulldogs
came on strong.
Doug Robinson poured 28
points through the nets and
Dexter Baxter added 21 in an
attempt to hold off the
Bulldogs, but a 10 point
bulge in the final stanza for
the 'Dogs was more than the
thin Shark ranks could over-
come.
The Bulldog ace, Mark
Fed, had 26 points for the
Bulldogs.
The Sharks were out-
scored in every period of the
game for the first time this
season.

Vernon's Yellow Jackets
got the Sharks on their home
grounds last Friday night
and edged the Port St. Joe
team by one point in a game
which was neck and neck all
the way.
The Sharks had their big-
, gest lead.of the game at the
end of the third period, when
they went eight points in the
lead. The, Yellovw Jackets
came back in the last period


with a full court press and
forced the Sharks into taking
shots they don't ordinarily
take and squeaked out the
one point margin at the final
whistle.
A free throw shot by
Vernon's Vann had given his
team a one point lead with
just over 40 seconds left in
the game. Playing for the
winning shot, the Sharks
stalled until two second left
on the clock, when Josh
Jenkins went up for the
winning bucket and missed.
The Jackets grabbed the
rebound and the game was
over.
The Sharks had three play-
ers scoring in double figures,
with Doug Robinson leading
the way with his 16 points.
Dexter Baxter had 14 and

Ministerial Alliance


Adopts


Resolution Opposing Gambling


' At the regular meeting of
the Port St. Joe Ministerial
Association on February 3,
1986 the following resolution
was passed:
The Ministerial Associa-
tion of Port St. Joe, Florida
wishes to inform all concern-
ed persons that as an organ-
ized body representing an
ecumenical group of clergy
and congregations in the
southern half of Gulf County,
Florida, we oppose the effort
to establish casino gambling
and a state operated lottery.
We oppose gambling from
an ethical and moral stance.
It is our belief that gambling
has historically shown itself
to foster social problems and
to shelter other vices which
also adversely affect society.
For instance; the FBI,
state, and local law enforce-


Eye Openers
by Dr. Wesley Grace'

STRABISMUS
If a child has an eye that
turns in (esotropia), is sur-
gery the only cure?
Surgery should be cpnsi-
dered-but glasses sho.fd:be
tried'first. In many cases,
excessive farsightedness in
children induces the estropia
in the first place. Wearing
especially prescribed glass-
es may straighten the turned
eye. Often it is necessary to
augment the cosmetic cor-
rection with visual training
that re-teaches the patient to
use the eye that has been
neglected. The younger the
patient, the shorter the
period of treatment general-
ly required.
Wearing glasses to strai-
gthen an eye initially does
not mean that the patient
will need glasses forever.
Non-surgical treatment of
not only estropias, but exo-
tropias (eyes that turn out)
and hypertropias (eyes that
turn up) is now covered by
many medical insurance
policies. Consult your own
carrier to see if this profes-
sional service is covered by
your policy -
Surgery should only' be
considered if glasses and
visual training prove unsuc-
cessful. Even after surgery,
glasses and training are
generally necessary.

ment offices wage continuing
battles against the launder-
ing of funds controlled by
crime figures and drug dis-
tributors in every part of the
country which features casi-
no gambling. Alcohol and
drug abuse, along with pros-
titution are also serious
problems for these regions.
State run lotteries are
generally established with
the presupposition that large
amounts of money can be
painlessly acquired and used
for good purposes, such as
education. In theory these
funds are meant to replace
unpopular increases in taxes.
The principle has actually


broken down wherever it has
been applied. A classic ex-
ample is the long-established
Pennsylvania lottery. It was
originally established speci-
fically to fund programs for
the elderly. The media on
many occasions have ex-
posed the fact that a percent-
age of these funds pay for the
very high overhead; and
other significant amounts
have leaked out of the system
in unforseen ways. On at
least one occasion the lottery
was rigged by a criminal
faction which managed to
collect a large winning be-
fore being detected.
Furthermore, w% believe


that gambling revenues are
in reality a hidden tax on the
poor and the compulsive.
Those who constitute the
underclass of society are the
ones who are most likely to
finance the system.

Wewa Fund


Raiser Is A


Big Success


BY Jerry Stokoe and Ometa
Osborne
On Saturday, February 8, a
bus load of seniors and staff
members traveled to Wewa-
hitchka to participate in a
fund raising fish--chicken
dinner, one of the many
projects scheduled to help
acquire finances for our Gulf
County Senior Citizens. In
spite of the inclement wea-
ther, a huge crowd gathered
at the center there through-
out the day to sample the
numerous varieties of tasty
and enticing dishes. All of the
food was tastefully prepared
and enjoyed by everyone in
attendance. The event was
indeed a huge success.
In addition to the reading
and writing class that was
initiated over two weeks ago,
we now wish to inform you of
the addition of a ceramics
class that will be held each
Tuesday and Wednesday
morning at the Seniors Cen-
ter. The, class will be con-
ducted by Betty Godwin. If
you are an interested senior
aged 60 or over, we invite you
to join us.
In the very near future we
are also planning to embark
on an aluminum recycling
project, and conduct weekly
Bingo games. Be sure to
watch for further details in
future editions of the Senior
Informer.
Four new seniors have


joined us this month: Fannie
McMillan, Tishia Bell, Neal-
ey Milligan, and Celestia
Coolman. We would like to
welcome them to GCSCA and
let them know how very
pleased we are to have them
join our family.
Plans have been made to
meet with interested seniors
in the Mexico Beach area to
explain our various pro-
grams and the services of-
fered by each, and also to
interview prospective cli-
ents. Those of you who are
unable to attend this meeting
may call either 229-8466 or
229-6655 for information, and
we'll be very happy to
answer your questions.
We'd like to wish a happy
birthday to the following
staff members and clients
who celebrate theirs during
the month of February: Sara
Allen, Eddie Williams, Victor
Johnson, Maggie Hall,-Willie
Collins, Olga Chovanec, Car-
los Miles, Ollie Pace, Ger-
tiude Cannington, Beatrice
Bryant, Monroe Beck, Char-
lie Washington, Jewel Wal-
ton, Jeanine Dorl, and Willie
Tiller.
Two new employees joined
our agency as Green Thumb
workers several weeks ago
and we'd like to take this
opportunity to welcome them
and to le' them know how
very muih we appreciate
them and the splendid work

Beauty

Contest
Johnny Linton has been
told by Wendell Campbell
that he doesn't have an act
that will top his. Who will be
the 1986 womanless beauty?


Will Johnny reign supreme
or will Wendell or another
contestant strip him of his
crown?
You might be wondering
who will judge this exciting
event. Tommy Thomas and
Buzz Leonard have gracious-
ly consented to help judge the
evening's antics. They will be
assisted by' among others,
Chief Lee Sullivan of Pana-
ma City Beach. The chief has
agreed to help maintain law
and order on the stage.
Tickets are now available
at Campbell's and Buzzett's
Drug Stores, Driesbach
Cleaners, The Video Mer-
chant, and the barber shop
downtown. Tickets will also
be sold from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m.

downtown grocery stores on
February 11 through 14.
Don't miss your chance to
see some of Gulf County's
most prominent men parade,
sing and dance their way into
your hearts. Buy your tickets
now. The price is a low $2.50
for adults and $1.00 for
children under 12.


Seafood Festival
Yes citizens of Gulf County
a seafood festival is coming.
The Bay St. Joseph Care
Center in concert with the
Senior Citizen's Association
is planning a wonderful sea-
food extravaganza on May 3.
This event is being planned
to raise money for the major
senior citizen programs in
Gulf County. The money will
be used to replenish the
emergency fund at HRS,
add to the activity program
at the nursing home, and
expand the meals program
for the senior citizens.
Anyone interested in ob-
taining a booth for the low
price of $10.00 with 10 percent
of the gross sales being
donated to the senior citizens
is asked to contact Jerry
Stokoe at 229-8466, or Dan
McGinnis at 229-8244.
The theme for this festival
will be centered around the
carnival. Everyone who is
handy at making arts &
crafts, second hand sales,

JAMES MADISON
"FATHER OF THE
CONSTITUTION"
James Madison was born
in 1751 in Port Conway,
Virginia. He was often ill as a
young boy. At the age of 18 he
went to Princeton University
where he studied religion,
philosophy, and principles of
government,
Madison was always a.
religious man. Only a small,
weak voice kept him from
becoming a minister. He
believed that people should
be able to go to the church of
their choice. He was always
against slavery even though
as a Virginia landowner he
was caught in the system of
the times. Madison was later
responsible for the article on
religious freedom in the
Virginia Declaration of
Rights. But he felt that
"church and state" should be'
separated.
Madison was always good
at planning and organizing.
Because of this, people learn-
ed to respect him. He was
also known to have good
common sense.
He was first elected to the
Continental Congress in 1779.
In November, 1782, he began
taking notes of congressional
proceedings. These were the
best records kept.
The politicians knew that
the Articles of Confederation
were not enough. Madison
felt more American than
Virginia and felt that a
strong national government
was important but that states
had rights, too.
Madison made up a plan to
please everyone. He had his
friend, Governor Randolph of
Virginia, present his 'plan
because Randolph had a good
speaking voice and he did
not. There was a New Jersey
Plan and Hamilton presented
his plan from New York.
They called the final plan
"The Great Compromise,"
but everyone knew that Mad-
ison had a lot to do with it. He
wanted three separate bodies
of government: the Execu-
tive (the President), the
Legislative (Congress) and
the Judicial (courts). They
would each "check and ba-
lance" each other.
Madison knew that there
would have to be changes,
but he felt the plan was one
they could build on. He
convinced his old friend that
the Compromise Plan was


worth ratifying. He promised
him that .the changes or
amendments would come
later. He told him, "First we
must accept it in its present
form. Delaware, Pennsylva-
nia, New Jersey, Georgia,
Connecticut and Massachu-
setts have all come under the
roof that's a phrase you
hear everywhere in the East
- and Virginia must join
them."
Madison's part in the adop-
tion of the Constitution did
not end at the convention. He
served as a member of the
Virginia Ratifying Conven-
tion. At the same time, he
joined Alexander Hamilton
and John Jay in writing The
Federalist, a series of letters
to newspapers. Scholars still
consider these to be the best
explanation of the American
constitutional system.
He became a friend to
General George Washington
and suggested to Washington
that he make Jefferson his
Secretary of State. Later,
when Jefferson became
President, Madison was his
Secretary of State.
In 1760, he married Dolly
Payne Todd. He was 43; she
was 26. Her outgoing person-
ality was good for his quiet,
studious personality.
He was President during
the War of 1812, and during
the terrible burning of Wash-
ington. His sister-in-law
managed to save many valu-
able papers including the
Constitution, the Declaration
of Independence and the
Gilbert Stuart portrait of
Washington that is so famous
now.
Madison died at the age of
85. He was mourned as a
great statesman who had a
desire for peace and harmo-
ny. He was a true American
who put America first. He is
remembered as "The Father
of the Constitution."

"THE LIFE OF JAMES
MADISON"
James Madison is remem-
bered by many as our fourth
President who fought hard
for peace with England,
especially on the seas. He has


also been given the distin-
guished title of "Father of
the Constitution."
James Madison was born
in the home of his mother's
parents on March 6, 1751, in
Port County, Virginia. He
was the eldest of his twelve
brothers and sisters born in
Nelly Conway Madison and
James Madison. Madison
attended school in King and
Queen County, Virginia. In
1769, he entered the college of
New Jersey .which is now
called Princeton University
and he graduated in 1771.
During this time, he studied
ministry which later on in his
life would be one of the major
contributions he would give
to his country.
Madison became a leader
in independence for the
American colonies, and dur-
ing the beginning of the
American Revolution he was
elected a delegate to. the
Virginia convention in 1776.
James Madison's major con-
tribution to this convention
was a clause allowing free
exercise of religion. This
clause will also show up
again in the Constitution of
the United States. However,
these strong religious, convic-
tions caused him some trou-
ble because he. was not
re-elected a delegate, for
Madison refused to serve the
electors rum which was the
custom at the time.

In 1779 James Madison was
elected as a delegate to the
Constitutional Congress and
became known for his strong
stand for a central form of
government, and, once
again, religious freedom. He.
believed this central form of
government would be limited
and checked by powers of
local government and the
people. Madison also intro-
duced the plan for a national
chief executive. While the
"Father of the Constitution"
waited for the Constitution to
be ratified by the states, he
stayed very busy. Madison
worked with Alexander Ha-
milton and John Jay in
writing the "Federalist Pa-
pers" which supported the
Constitution.
In 1797, James Madison
was elected to the first
session of the House of
Representatives and then
served as the Secretary of

State. Madison whs not
through serving his country
because in 1809 he was
elected the fourth President
of the United States. It was a
difficult term, for Madison
fought to keep America's
seamen from being impres-
sioned by English and
French ships. In 1812, he was
re-elected as president and
he served his term and
retired.
James Madison returned to
his home in Montpeliar,
Orange County, Virginia, and
at the age of eighty-four he
died there. James Madison
will long be remembered as
an expert in the constitution-
al history, a fighter for
religious freedom from se-
paration from church and
state, and his long, hard
struggle to see the adoption
of the Constitution; but most
of all, as the "Father of the
Constitution."
