School Board Answer Delayed


Attorneys Agree
The Gulf County School Board bought a little
time this week, in answering a suit action filed
against them on January 30.
Board Chairman, Waylon Graham, told The
Star yesterday the Board did not file their
answer to a suit to elect the Board members
from single member districts on Tuesday of this
week, which was their first deadline to answer.
Graham said the Board gained a few days
extension for filing their answer when their
attorney, Cecil G. Costin, Jr., became ill Monday
and couldn't finish up the answer by the
deadline.
"We'll have our answer probably later this
week", Graham said.
Graham said he didn't.know just how much


On Extension of Time to Answer Suit


time the Board has now. "The attorneys worked
that one out", he said. "Our attorney called Kent
Sprigs in Tallahassee and worked out the details
of the delay", the Board chairman said.
The School Board has been served with a suit
filed by Nathan Peters, Jr., of Port St. Joe, which
would require the Board to elect its members
from the single member districts. They are now
elected at-large by all county voters. In the
proposed plan, the county would be divided into
districts, with members living in the district and
voted on only by the people living in that
particular district.
Under the present plan, the county is divided
into districts, with members living in their
particular district, but they are elected by the


county at large.
Peters' suit says he is filing the action for the
black community in the county to gain more
representation on the School Board for the black
minority.
The single member district concept was
used by Florida several years ago, but was
declared unconstitutional by the courts at that
time resulting in the present at large voting.
Peters has stated he is filing a similar suit
against the County Commission, and attempts
have been made by his attorney in Tallahassee,
to contact county attorney William J.Rish, but
Rish said Tuesday he has been available but no
contact has been made as yet. "We still haven't
been served by a suit", Rish said.

Confiscated In Arrest


Two men were arrested by the Gulf
County Sheriff's Department Monday
afternoon, just as they had completed a
. drug sale:
According to Chief Deputy Mike
White, Jesse R. White, 28, of. Southport
and Robert L. Foster, 41, of Marathon,
were arrested at the oil docks at the end
of First Street as they were marketing
the illegal substance. The two men were
charged with the sale of marijuana,
possession of marijuana with intent to
distribute and a conspiracy to sell


marijuana.'
In addition to the two arrests, the
arresting officers' confiscated a large
quantity of marijuana, a 1980 Ford LTD
sedan 'and $8,600 in cash, all of which
were impounded in the raid.
White said the investigation of the
incident is continuing and more arrests
are expected as a result of the ongoing
investigation,
The Gulf County Sheriff's Depart-
ment is being assisted by the Bay County
Sheriff's Department.


Offers
The City of Port St. Joe has
hired a new building inspec-
tor to take the place of the
late E.F. Gunn, who died in
January. The new building
inspector has been hired on
an interim basis, allowing
both he and the City Commis,
sion to feel each other out and
see how they like the job.
Scott Stanley, a former,
building contractor, now liv-
ing at The Boardwalk on St.
Joseph Peninsula was ap-
proved by the Commission on
a temporary basis as the'
City's building inspector and
was also employed to com-
plete plans, permitting and
specifications for replacing
the boat docks.at the west
end of Fifth Street. Gunn had
-...started ,work on the-project,-
but didn't get it completed'
before he passed away.
Stanley will serve as in-
spector for the fees, as Gunn
did. In the meanwhile, the
Commission will take an-
other look at the fees, which
are probably in for some
adjustments.
Dewayne Manuel, the Gulf
county building inspector,
has been filling in for the city
since Gunn's death.
ASKING FOR BIDS

the Board the city's engine-
ers; Smith and Gillespie have

out the sewer collection
system can also test and seal
leaking sewer lines all in the
same operation if the Com-
mission will approach them.
The work, according to the
engineers, would be a small
amount more than the cur-
rent inspection costs, but
would not be: payable from
grants. The City would have
to pay for the work out of
their own account. .
The engineers advised that
the total bill for inspection,
sealing and testing would not
run more than an estimated
$75,000.
Commission James Rob-
erts stated the job would
have to be done within the
nrextfcouple of years. and he--
could see no reason to pay for
the cleaning service twice.
Roberts said the city could
save considerable money to
go ahead with the work now.
Attorney William J.Rish
advised the Commission they
would need to call for bids for
the project since Griner is
working for the engineer and
not for the city. "This would
take a new contract and that
would require a bid", he said.
The Commission agreed to
call for bids to perform the
testing and sealing work,
which would prevent some of
the current sand and water
infiltration in the lines. Most

Greg Walker was met with
enthusiastic approval from
the Commission when he
asked for permission to use
Washington Gym for a Fri-
day or Saturday night youth
activity. Walker asked the
Commission to remove or

per night for the use of the

Walker said he was want-
ing to take his sound equip-
ment to the gym and play

kids to go on these nights.
"There's no place now for
them to go except the street
corners, and the atmosphere
there isn't what kids should
be involved in", he.said.

Beaches' Power
S Electric service was knocked out of the entire""
beach area from St. Joe Beach to: Mexico Beach
Monday morning and was out for a little more than an
hour, according to Mike McDonald, local Florida
Power Corporation manager.
McDonald said the service was knocked out about
9:00 a.m., when someone shot an insulator off a high
voltage line near..the power company sub-station at
Beacon Hill, shorting out the transmission line.
McDonald said the insulator was shot off some
distance from the sub-station, behind the Beacon Hill
area, but the line was a main feeder from the station.
The manager 'pointed out that' it is not only
dangerous to be shooting or otherwise meddling with
the insulators, but it is also against the law. "We
haven't found out who did it, yet", McDonald said, "but
you can believe we're still looking".

Gulf County and asked for
the input of the membership
into the Chamber's activi-
ties.
Retiring president Sum-
ner, who presided over the
meeting, handed out copies
of a county-wide map of
interests which had been
prepared during the past
year.. The map shows the
location of all points of
interest in the county, as well
as recreational points and
historic locations.
FILM INTRODUCED
The membership saw the
finished version of a newly
prepared video tape which
has been a project of the
Chamber for the past year.
The film was prepared as a
joint effort of the Port St.
Joe-Gulf County Chamber
and the Wewahitchka Cham-
ber, to tell the story of Gulf
County. The film includes
testimonials from business
and industry which has lo-
cated in Gulf County during
the past few years and
depicts personalities in the
businesses telling how satis-
fied they are with the area
and why they picked it for a
location.
The film features the in-
dustrial, recreational and
*climate features of the coun-
ty as well as the fine school
system, available labor and
good neighborhoods. ThTe
film stresses that Gulf Coun-
ty is a friendly and safe place
to live and rear children.
FEATURED SPEAKER
Jim Hollingsworth,a pro-
fessional business consultant


of Tallahassee, was the feat-
tured speaker for the ban-
quet and gave a stirring
motivational address.
Hollingsworth said mem-
bers of the Chamber need to
be concerned about their
attitude, be enthusiastic and -
be adjustable to change in
order to handle the future
properly.
"By 1995, you will'have at
least a nine percent increase
in population and chances
are it will be even greater.
Still the growth will be


substantial and it provides an
opportunity to the county to
do greater things. If you keep
on doing what you are doing,
you'll get the same results. If
you adapt to change you can
direct your future in any
direction you want", he said.
Rev. Jerry Huft was on the
program, giving the invoca-
tion. The steak dinner was
prepared by the Lions Club
and the High School "Mat
Maids" served as waitresses
during the dinner.

Vic Griffin Construction Company of
Blountstown was the apparent low bidder
last Thursday in a project by the Gulf
County School Board to construct a covered
play area at the Highland View Elementary
School.
Griffin bid $76,889 as his base bid on the
project, which includes the covered play
area and a covered walk-way to main school
building. He would reduce $11,607 from his
bid if the School Board decides not to
construct the walkway.
Pro-Steel of Tallahassee was still in the
bidding with their quotation of $77,665 for the
entire project and a reduction of $13,976 if
the walkway isn't built.


The School Board decided to hold the
bids for a few days and look over their
money available for construction before
making a final decision on the matter.
One item which will affect their decision
is the intent to construct five new
classrooms and support facilities at the
Wewahitchka Elementary School site. The
new classrooms will allow the Board to close
down the old school site on Highway 71 in
Wewahitchka.
Architect Charles Arthur Gaskin said
the plans are nearly ready to call for bids for
the classrooms, which will also be built in
the current budget year, along with the
Highland View construction.

SA No Thanks, I'll Walk


It get's a little touchy when
some of your almost relatives need
a public pat on the back and it's
your job to do the patting.
Our School Superintendent,
Walter Wilder, needs the pat and
it's our job as well as our privilege
to give that pat and at the same
time try to remain unbiased in our
patting.
: Walter is almost a relative
through no planning or astute
moves on his own. His sister
happened to have the presence of
mind to marry our brother, thus
making Walter an "almost" rela-
ltive.


S After explaining all this, let us
., Jaunch, now, into our congratula-
iE tions to our head educator here in
Gulf County on his recent selection

Sthe nation that's the nation, not

Several years ago, a nationally
Advertised tooth paste featured a
little jingle which went something
like this: "You wonder where the
Yellow went, when you brush your
teeth with Pepsodent".
The U.S. Treasury is now
wondering where some 80 percent
of the currency which is supposed
to be in circulation has gotten off
to.
Last week, the Treasury dis-
: covered through a means which is
known only to the Treasury, that
only $18 billion of some $153.9

"I don't think that you can
do it."
SAs soon as I heard Bobby
speak I turned to look at
Larry. You could tell that
Larry was a tad uncomfort-
able kind'a like the man
that's bitten off more than he
can chew. All he said was, "I
can do it."
We had been hunkering all
morning around the front
porch of Woodrow Kennon's
grocery store. What's that
you say? Hunkering oh,
it's just a way the old timers


used to sit around back
home. Well it's not actually
sitting you just bend your
Igees and squat down as far
as you can go and kind'a
rock back on your heels. Lay
your arms out across your
knees and you're in the hun-
kering position. My Uncle
Womack could hunker down
for hours and never move.
He was the best ... the ab-
solute best. You still don't
get the picture, stop by and
see me sometime we'll
practice our hunkering


together.
We wanted to be like the
grown-ups so this particular
morning -we were hunkering
down and chewing Warren
County Twist out on Mr.
Woodrow's front porch.
Now, we weren't all hunker-
ing as Bobby was a'sitting on
an R.C. Cola case turned up
edgeways. As I was saying,
Bobby and Larry got into
this discussion as to whether
or not a man could ride a tire
from the top of the big hill up
above Everite's Lake down


past the lake all the way out
to the highway. What's that
you say? Ride a tire well,
before the days of cartoons,
H-man and live studio wrest-
ling young boys had to use a
little imagination to come up
with "things" to keep them
occupied. We'd get an old
tire, fold ourselves up inside,
and have some friends roll
us down a hill. I know ya'll
have done this. Remember
seeing the ground, then the
sky, then the ground, then
the sky, the ground, the sky,
the ground .... it got faster
and faster till the ground and
the sky kind'a blended to-
gether. Only way to stop was
to hit something and knock
the tire over. Remember the
feeling when you tried to


staff and does the guiding that
causes them to produce the results
they produce. Wilder may not know
beans about teaching a class so far
as we know, but he has assembled a
team which gets the job done and
gets it done effectively.
We see about half the profes-
sional football and baseball teams
hiring new managers this year
because the team just didn't get the
job done under the old manager.
The Kansas City Royals won the
World Series last year, but Dick
Howser gets the credit, even
though he never touched a bat or
expectorated a single dollop of
tobacco juice. The Chicago Bears
won the Super Bowl and Mike Ditka
is the toast of the town, even though
he never kicked a football.
You get the idea.
To be selected as one of the
top 100 educators in our nation
takes in p lot of schools, chalk and
blackboards. Somebody was doing
something right here in little,
out-of-the-way Gulf County which
caused'those making the selection
to sit up and take notice.
Whether or not Wilder did the
job, deserved the accolades or not,
or merely had it done; whatever
transpired, we hope it continues to
'~ftay in gear and draw this kind of
attention to our county. It's so
much better than the type attention
some other counties are getting.



Money Go?

Now that's news! A quick
survey of our money pocket reveals
Sit MUST have- been the Feds wvho
were rummaging around int there,
because the total was more like
$2.63, rather than $100. It may be
the Feds lifted the other $97.37 as
taxes on the $1,000 which they
say should have been there.
When you figure that one out
and tell the Feds how you arrived
at the answer, they may be able to
use the same formula and discover
that the average American would
be happy to be wa, ing around with
$100 in his pockets. They may even
find the other $135 billion which is
missing.
Personally, we didn't think
there was that much money in the
world.
They tell us that among the
missing cash is $3.47 million worth
of $10,000 bills which are outstand-
ing and unaccounted for. We
wonder if they would authorize a
search on halves?


The Skyrocketing Price of Coffee Beans Doesn't Bother Me At All!


WITH THE RISING prices we've
been warned about, I guess it's time
for my annual testimonial about the
evils of coffee.
From what I read in the papers,
Sthe cost of the wicked brew is
predicted to be headed for the price
range of some $8.00 to $12.00 per pound
in the future because of a drought in
Brazil.
You know how the old song goes:
"They grow an awful lot of coffee in
Brazil". Things are going to be
different... at least for a year. If that
song, which was a favorite in the '40s
and '50s were to be written today, it
would have to go something like this:
"They don't grow so much coffee in
Brazil".
There's two things one thinks
about when. the word "Brazil" is
mentioned and they are coffee and
Xavier Cugat.
You may remember Abbe Lane,
but that's another story.
The point is, coffee is headed for
the stratosphere or at least, the
price of coffee is headed in that
. direction. .they tell us.


Or- I


And, we all know who "they" are.
+++++
I "CAN'T UNDERSTAND how
coffee became such a staple in the
American diet. One can't go anywhere


as much or more per person than any
other nation in the world.
That's strange. It's strange, es-
pecially since it tastes so bad.

in these United States and have a few
minutes to kill without being asked if
you want a cup of coffee.
Flour is a staple and it is grown
here in the United States. Sugar is
another staple and we grow most of
our own right here in the lower states
of the nation. But, coffee? So far as I
know, we don't grow even a cupful of
the dark and bitter bean here in the
United States; yet, we probably drink

the stuff. I guess it's that American
addiction I was talking about a few
lines earlier.
Everyone has to have a pot of
coffee going these days, or he just

I'd have to think about it. I would
probably wind up taking the cup of
coffee, as much as I dislike it.
+ + + + +
I SHOULDN'T CHORTLE about
the price of coffee going up, but to
tell you the truth, I can't get excited
about it.
We keep a coffee pot going here at
the office, even though I never touch


isn't in the swing of things.
Even though I don't drink it, there
are poor misguided souls who stay
around here who gulp down the stuff
each and every day.
The coffee pot here at The Star is
one of those you just put the coffee in a
paper plate in the top and pour in the
water and stand back and watch.
When coffee comes out of our pot,
it looks about like the water in Depot

Creek. I'll catch them, but somebody.
else can eat them.
With the rising cost of coffee
we're just liable to do one of two
things here at The Star. We might
retire the coffee pot until the price
comes down, or we may start
collecting 50 cents every time some-
body gets a cup. Either solution to the
cost problem should see us through
the crisis.
I talk big, but even though I am
not a betting man-I even oppose both
casino gambling and the state lot-
tery-I would wager that the price of
coffee doesn't affect the supply or the
consumption of coffee around here
one iota.
People who are going to drink the
stuff are going to drink it, no matter
what the cost.
+++++
THERE ARE SO many things
wrong with me, I am happy to crow
about the lack of the addiction to
coffee. It makes me feel all clean
inside to know there is something,


SIX MONTHS IN COUNTY $8 00
SIX MONTHS OUT OF COUNTY $1000
OUT OF U S -ONE YEAR $16 00


Tides


which everybody else seems to love,
which I can resist with no problem at
all.
I envy the person who can eat just
a taste of things which are sinfully '4
fattening and then leave it alone. I
envy those who can discipline them-
selves about dieting and I envy those
who can make themselves perform
tasks they don't particularly want to
do, but need to.
All of these things would be nice to
be able to put into my life, but I make
up for it all and do my bragging about
being free of the coffee kick. I can sit
right down by a cup of coffee and not
touch it and it doesn't bother me one-
little bit.
I can't say that about other things,
such as a thick juicy steak, some
succulent scallops or shrimp, or a
thick, creamy milkshake.
As a matter of fact, I've made
myself hungry just writing these last
two or three lines.
Come to think of it, though, if I
could settle that hunger with a cup of
coffee-even at $10 a pound-I might
be better off.

stand up after a tire ride.
The whole world was spin-
ning like crazy. Sometimes it
would take 10 or 15 minutes
for you to regain your equili-
brium. Some guys threw up
after the ride. Boy howdy
and shucks a'mighty, didn't
we know how to have fun.
Bobby said there's no way
you could ride a tire from the
top of Everite's Hill to the
highway. Larry kept saying
that it COULD be done.
Sonnn, you hadn't got to be
an Einstein to know where
this conversation was head- *
ed. Finally Ricky spoke up,

Letter to Ed.:

What's the

Difference?
Gentlemen:
Regarding the Ministerial
Association plea for people to
vote "no" to casino gambling
and lotteries in Florida, may
I make the following com-
ment.
If I had a teenager who
asked why the churches are
against casinos and lotteries
when they condone bingo and
accept sweepstakes, Jai Lai,
dog racing, horse racing, and
football pools, the answer
could only be. "That is a
good question".
It is ludicro is.r1 Florid-
ians to worry about some
"bad elements" coming into
the state should the casinos
be active. According to the
Newspaper sports :and4 the
TV programs relating to vice 9
in the country, Miami and
Tampa are at the top of the
list for being dangerous cities
due to the crime on record, so
the crime syndicates have
already established them-
selves.
There is a lot of poverty in
the state and perhaps casinos
are the lesser of two evils and
the end justifies the means.
Casinos need not be dens of
iniquity. They can be places
where money from all over
the world can pour into the
United States and give liter-
ally thousands of people
work; directly and indirect-
ly.
If properly watchdogged
by the government, what
could be considered bad in
some repsects could be a
godsend in others.
Yours very truly,
Marjorie Parker

PHANTRY
L by Wendell Campbell


A Stupid Bet

ONE NIGHT NOT long ago, in a moment of total
mental collapse and after I was about four deep in a
six-pack, I made a stupid proposal to my wife. I offered
to participate in an experiment.
I volunteered to take over the household duties for
two weeks.
It was immediately apparent that I had made a
grave and dangerous mistake. She went to the phone
and called a notary. When the notary arrived, she had
me sign a statement binding me to theexperiment.
When it was signed and notarized, she sent it to her
attorney, via Federal Express.
He lives about a mile from us.
I foolishly maintained that I could do the
housework as well (or better) than she in about half the
time. I had hardly gotten this statement out when she
said, "Sign here .sucker!"
That statement made me mad! At that moment I
vowed to win, at any cost. I started making my plans.

MEALS AND CLOTHES were the two main areas I
would concentrate the thrust of my effort. The kitchen
and washing clothes, I reasoned, were the two areas
that consumed most of the time in house cleaning. The
other areas could be cleaned and, with little effort, be
kept that way. Running the vacuum and dusting would
be minor jobs after the initial cleaning.
After some serious thought the next morning I also
gave some serious thought to backing out of the
experiment. She pointed out, however, that the
agreement had a "no-back-out" clause. The wording
was, in effect, that if I backed out for any.reason, other
than death (my death), that I would sleep outside the
confines of our home for six nights in a row. The only
buildings outside our home are the storage shed and the
dog house. The storage shed leaks and wind blows
through it.

THE NEXT MORNING I assumed control. After I'
plugged the coffee in I started mixing eggs, frying
bacon and boiling water for grits. In between the eggs,
bacon, grits and toast, I set the table and put up the
dishes that were left in the dishwasher the night before.
It was a mad rush but everything was set and in
place when the darlings walked into the kitchen.
After breakfast, while they were completing their
last minute preparations for school, I put the first of
many loads of clothes on to wash. With clothes washing
and me folding, I started to vacuum. I now had three
different jobs going. I-was running but making
progress.
By nine-thirty, I had the kitchen clean, the house
vacuumed, three loads of clothes- washed and folded
and was ready to dust.
By eleven o'clock, everything in our house was
spotless.
I didn't eat lunch because I didn't want to go
through the kitchen routine again.

AFTER A SHORT two hour nap (T was about to
..;leollapsea,-Ideeided'it wa~stime to get outside--.Yard
work, I reasoned, is something she hardly ever does
and will add insult to injury when the final score is
tallied.
By the time she and the kids arrived home, the yard
was cut and raked and the trash was: in a neat pile
beside the road. I was lounging in a recliner in the den
reading a book, looking happy and relaxed.
"What's for dinner, Dad?" my youngest son asked.
I had forgotten all about din-din. My serious cooking
had been confined to steaks on the grill and an
occasional breakfast. We had no steaks and everyone
had eaten breakast that morning. I had to do some fast
thinking.

I DECIDED TO FIX tuna. If you have never fixed
tuna, I assure you it's not as easy to fix as it looks,
That evening we had tuna, mixed with mayonnaise,
fried frozen french fries, fresh lite bread (store bought)
and cold pork and beans. For desert we had a bowl of
sugar pops.
After I cleaned the kitchen again, made sure the
children were bathed and had their homework
completed, I took a shower and went to bed.
It was seven-thirty!
The second day was much worse than the first.
Where on earth, I wondered, did all the dirty clothes
comes from? There was a pile of dirty clothes a show
dog couldn't jump over. I had just washed everything
the day before. I couldn't believe it!

I AM NOW IN the fifth day of this farce and things
are getting completely out of hand. The harder I run,
the farther behind I get.
Providing the weather warms and it doesn't rain,
tonight I will be singing the old Hank Williams classic,
"Move over little dog, the big dog movin' in!"

SJames Madison: Role He Played


In the Constitutior


:The seventh grade winner
of the DAR American Histo-
ry- contest is Amy Lyn
Waldorff of Wewahitchka
Junior-Senior High School.
Amy Lynn is the daughter
of Rebecca and Martin Wal-
dorff, Jr. Her mother is
secretary for the First Bap-
tist Church, and her father
works at St. Joe Paper
Company.
'.This winner has made the
honor roll each six weeks.
She enjoys swimming and
reading, but her favorite
lobby is playing the piano.
:.Ier teacher is Mrs. Debra
Btts. Amy Lyn's essay will
now be in state competition.
". JAMES MADISON:
THE ROLE HE PLAYED
IN THE CONSTITUTION
S..!'Father of the Constitu-
tion" is a great name for a
great man. James Madison
Was intelligent, courageous,
atd a devoted patriot. I feel
that if it were not for him, our
Constitution would not be
what it is today. Much of the
Constitution is his beliefs and
~oughts.
S--When James Madison was
a' "child, he studied with
private tutors. When he got a
Eitle older, he went to the
College of New Jersey. It was
Swhile he was in college that
Ii began to take an interest
i : politics. Shortly after that,
* (ie 'became one of the found-
.es of the American Whig
ejety. When he graduated,
he' spent the next year
stWdying philosophy and He-
brew and also making plans
Sto be a preacher, but soon he
gave that up. He became
n terested in history, politics,
mnI law. When Madison was
bnry 23 years old, he entered
politics as a member of the
local Committee of Safety.
; later on, Madison was
tht-en as a representative
for:the Virginia convention.
l}: ewas on the committee
that wrote the new state
constitution and the Bill of
Rights.
; In 1777, Madison lost in his
bid for the legislature. In
J778, he was in Williamsburg
as a representative of the
Governor's Cou.nil. Then in
jpecember bf "186" he was
Selected as a delegate to the
,Continental Congress. Before
SMadison came back to Vir-
ginia, he was recognized as
the most capable member of
the Congress.
." Soon people began to see
that there was a problem
with the Articles of Confede-
ration. They army could not
be paid, the was debt could
.not be paid off, and there
Were other problems as well.
So, at the Annapolis Conven-
tion of 1786, it was decided
that there would be a new


AMY LYN WALDORFF
document written. James
Madison was one of the men
that was sent to the Consitu-
tional Convention in Phila-
delphia.
When Madison arrived in
Philadelphia, he started
making plans right away. He
was the first man to arrive
there, and he arrived there
ten days early. He spent
more time than anyone else
preparing for this conven-
tion. Then the convention
started. There were 27 men
present, but soon there would
be 55 delegates involved with


i- Amy
the convention. Madison took
a seat up front. While the
convention was in process,
Madison took notes and made
records of the debate. He was
the only man to have a
written record of the conven-
tion. There was a big argu-
ment about whether to
choose the Virginia Plan -
the plan that stated that the
larger a state was, the more
representatives it would
have or the New Jersey
Plan, the plan that stated
that each state should have
the same number of repre-
sentatives. The pros and cons
were argued back and forth.
Finally, a compromise was
reached. Even though James
Madison was for the Virginia
Plan, he agreed to the
compromise. After four
months, the document was
finished.
Many of Madison's beliefs
and ideas are included in the
Constitution. He believed
that each state should have a
common goal, and that goal
was liberty. Madison be-
lieved that liberty, order, and
property could not be pro-
tected by looking at the
education, religion, or the
goodness of a man. Govern-
ment should be elected by the


Waldorff

people and responsible to the
people, Madison believed. He
also believed that we needed
a stronger central govern-
ment with effective execu-
tive and judicial branches,
and he came up with a
system of checks and ba-
lances.
After he got through help-
ing write the Constitution, he
wrote 29 essays defending it.
After that, there were still
two states that would not
adopt the Constitution. Madi-
son worked hard for the
adoption of the Constitution
in these two states until he
finally won them over.
Our gratitude toward
James Madison is expressed
in these words spoken by
William Pierce of Georgia:
"Every person seems to
acknowledge his greatness.
He blends together the pro-
found politician with the
scholar. In the management
of every great question he
evidently takes the lead. The
affairs of the United States
he has perhaps the most
correct knowledge of any
man in the Union."
We owe a lot to James
Madison, the Father of our
Constitution.

Customs Officer


Says Marijuana

Imports Diminish


Richard Higgins, director
of the Apalachicola office of
the U.S. Custom's Service,
told the Rotary Club last
Thursday, of some of the
duties of the service.
Higgins said his office,
along with the Tallahassee
office, serves the Big Bend
area of Florida, including
Gulf County. He said there
are 15,000 men in the service,
watching the entire coastline
of the United States to
monitor people coming and
going from the country, as
well as trying to intercept
illegal contraband, including
dope. The speaker said the
shipment of dope-especially
marijuana-into the United
States has slowed down some
and has been replaced by the
home-grown variety.
Higgins said that in 1984,
the Custom's Service inter-
:cepted $10.9 billion dollars in
illegal drugs. He said the
contraband seized with the
drugs and items intercepted
which people attempt to
smuggle into the U.S. without
paying duty on them allows

Sharks Win



Two Games


Port St. Joe's Sharks got
back in the win column this
past week in a big way, after
suffering through three los-
ses, when injuries and the flu
decimated their ranks.
Friday of last week, the
Sharks were rude to the
Havana Gladiators, pound-
ing their visitors with a 90-68
score.
The two teams played on
even terms for the first
period, then the Sharks took
off and never looked back.
Doug Robinson, who was
one of the injury victims
earlier, scorched the nets for
27 points to pace the Sharks
and bounced for nine re-
bounds. Dexter Baxter
pumped 18 points through the
nets. Curtis Beard had a good
night with 15 points and Josh
Jenkins added 11.
Harmon Williams led the
Gladiators with his 26 points.
After the first quarter
ended in a 19-19 tie, the
Sharks were in the lead all
,the way, for the rest of the
game.

Port St. Joe 19 22 27 21-90

The Tornadoes didn't have
a chance with four of the
Sharks scoring in double
figures for their second game
in a row and their rebound-
ers, Josh Jenkins, Doug
Robinson and Michael Lewis
bouncing like rubber balls
after the basketball.
The best Bay could do was
to have Eric Pittman score 14
points as their high man.
The Sharks jumped off to a.
21-8 first quarter lead and
were never behind for the,
rest of the game.
Dexter Baxter led the
scoring parade with 19

FLUORESCENT
LIGHTING
Q. Can fluorescent lighting
cause the eyes to burn
and vision to blur?
A. Glare from fluorescen4s
remains a source of
visual discomfort and
poor visibility in many
work areas. This can be
especially troublesome
when workers must use
computer display
screens. Though you
probably cannot ask your
employers to redesign the
workspace for you, you
may be able to:
*change the angle of your
desk in relation to the
light source.
move smaller fluores-
cents, so they do not
shine directly into your
eyes.
askif diffusers or lou-
vers can be put on the
fluorescents.
have your eyeglasses
tinted.
In new constructions,
mercury lighting, sodium
lighting and metal halide
lights are slowly replac-
ing fluorescents.
Good lighting is impor-
tant to good vision. So is
regular eye examination
and prompt correction of
vision deficiencies.

smoke them", she said,
stating that smoking cigar-

cause of lung cancer in both
men and women as well as

Showing a slide projection
of some "do's" and don'tt"

risk, Ms. Ard said some of
the most positive things a.
person can do to take control
of his future .and avoid
cancer are: eat vegetables of
the cabbabe family, as well
as other, vegetables, get
plenty of fiber in your diet,
eat foods high in vitamins A
and C and shy away from fats
and meats treated with ni-

Some of the things which

Look for


the Good


In People

We all use adjectives to
describe aspects of persona-
lity. Some of these are color
words, others are dimension,
or age words.
When we see others, we see
black, white, brown, and
olive. We also see tall, short,
thin, fat, small, and large.
And of course we see old,
young, and in-between.
But something lies beyond
these visually stimulated ad-
jectives. Other aspects of
personality are not nearly as
apparent as these are. If we
spend enough time together
we start to notice other
characteristics which re-
quire abstracts adjectives.
And these descriptive words
are the really important
ones.
Some of these words are
words like pleasant, sullen,
generous, frugal, loving,
thoughtless, kind, and negli-
gent.
A glance may be enough to
establish the color and di-
mension adjectives, but it
takes a lot longer to attach
the less noticeable words.
And this is a big problem for
us.
I have noticed that we.
quickly categorize each other
by the visible adjectives
while the less apparent ones
escape us. Shame on us for
not taking enough time to
know each other better.
We are all poorer because
of' our haste in placing
adjectives on each other. All
too often the wrong adjective
will prevent us from seeing
the greatness and goodness
that resides in everyone.
Behind the color, size and
age of each individual there
is a wonderfully made hu-
man. A person with the
potential of nobility and
graciousness may be set
back because someone hast-
ily gave them a misleading

Minutes


The Board of County Com-
mission, of "Gulf County,
Florida, met January 28, 1986
in regular session with the
following members present:
Chairman Billy Branch,
Douglas C. Birmingham,
A.B. Traylor, Eldridge Mo-
ney, and Everett Owens, Jr.
Others present were: Clerk
Jerry T. Gates, Deputy Clerk
Maurell Cumbie, Associate
County Attorney Tom Gib-
son, Finance Officer Benny
Lister, Sheriff Al Harrison,
Civil Defense Director Larry
Wells, Port St. Joe Ambu-
lance Director Millergren
and Building Inspector De-
Wayne Manuel.
The meeting came to order
at 7:00 p.m.
Civil Defense Director
Wells opened the meeting
with prayer and led the
pledge of allegiance to the
flag.
Upon motion by Commis-
sioner Owens, second by
Commissioner Money, and
unanimous vote, the Board
approved the minutes of
January 14, 1986.
Pursuant to advertisement
to receive sealed bids to sell
the county one V6 401 M Short
Block Engine for GMC truck,
Mosquito Control Depart-
ment, the following bids were
received: St. Joe Auto Parts,
Port St. Joe, $1,071.00 ex-
change; Renfro Auto Parts,
Port St. Joe, $905.00 plus
$150.00 core change if block
has visible cracks; and We-
wa Auto Parts, Wewahitch-
ka, $1,098.00 exchange.
Upon motion by Commis-
sioner Money, second by
Commissioner Owens, and
unanimous vote, the Board
awarded the bid to the low
bidder Renfro Auto Parts.
Biff Quarles, of Port St.
Joe, read a letter he had
written Governor Graham
and the Cabinet last week in
response to the proposal of a
new coastal construction set-
back line, stating the follow-
ing:
Opposed to DNR's hand-
ling of notification and con-
ducting of hearings no
.notice to property owners
living out of town.
DNR gave no response to
his letter of November 10,
asking for explanation of
what "under construction"
is. Letter McNeilI family
received from DNR is not
honored by DNR as it was
written under previous ad-
ministration.
Large developers overturn
DNR rulings by legal action
Sand can build where others
can't.
If persons are restricted
from construction on 80 per-
cent of property they should
receive 80 percent tax reduc-
tion.
SSt. Joe Paper Company
filed two cases against Cabi-
net to prohibit DNR exercis-
ing jurisdiction on property
that doesn't front Gulf of
Mexico Range Marker 5 to
30. Cabinet made no proposal
after legal action, then made
motion to exclude Range
Marker 15 to 30. Attorney
General commented they
should probably exclude area
they don't have jurisdiction
over, Range Marker 5 to 30
(Beacon Hill to Butler's
Point), but as no official from
Gulf County present to re-
quest this, they would go
ahead and include it in
setback line.
Obtained list of persons
present at hearing in Talla-
hassee not one county
commissioner from Gulf
County present.
Quarles family may lose
two of four parcels of proper-
ty in Beacon Hill, due to the
proposed coastal construc-
tion setback line change.
Glen Combs, contractor and
resident, Port St. Joe, com-
mended Quarles for his com-
ments and participation. He
said he too was concerned
about no local government
representation in Tallahas-
see concerning the setback
line changes.
Upon presentation by Pro-
ject Engineer Silvey, the
Board approved the Chair-
man and Clerk signing a
construction contract in the
amount of $89,755.00 with
Fairchild-Florida to con-
struct the Pleasant Rest
Cemetery Bridge. Silvey sta-
ted he would schedule a
pre-construction meeting to
be held on the job site.
Comm. Money requested.
South Gulf County Water-
Sewer System Feasibility
Study Engineer Silvey con-
tact the Citizen's Committee
Chairman Robert Nedley
asking the committee expe-
dite its review of study.
Mike Tucker and Kathy
Prather, of county's auditing
firm T. Michael Tucker,


C.P.A., were present. As
requested by the Board,
Tucker reported on audit of
the Law Enforcement Edu-
cation Account.
Following report of actual
law concerning law enforce-
ment education assessment
portion of fine and applica-
tion of same (dates effective
and type cases applicable),
Tucker stated the county did
not have to and did not take
any educational assessment
from non-criminal traffic


fines. The only problem was
a misinterpretation of law, in
that the education assess-
ment shouldn't have been
taken out on traffic cases
during the period of 1976-80
and was. In conclusion, ac-
count actually has more
money that it is supposed to.
Regarding reduction of ac-
count balance, in 1981 a
transposition was made in
accounting $6,575.06 of
fines placed in education
assessment. This has been
corrected by Clerk by de-
creasing LEEA by $6,575.06
and increasing fines by same
amount. I think it is not too
late for this correction to
have been made. It was an
oversite in my opinion. No
accounting errors found dur-
ing this review. Fairly satis-
fied.
Tucker said he would not
make a detailed audit of each
.individual traffic fine for the
16 year period without speci-
fic authorization by the
Board, due to great expense
to county. The Sheriff stated
his only contention was it-is
shocking to find such a
posting error was made and,
although it would be a burden
to his budget to pay for
officer's training, he wasn't
requesting county to continue
with an in-depth audit due to
cost. The Sheriff stated in the
future he could check on this
account balance since it is
now a separate account.
After further discussion by
the Commission, Clerk
Gates, Auditor Tucker, and
Sheriff Harrison, Comm.
Owens directed Tucker run
the audit through the present
to verify location of the
$6,575.06 deposit (acct.-
fund?) and if the $312.73
LEEA.balance shown by the
Clerk is correct. Chairman
Branch stated he wanted a
Direct answer from Tucker if
the $6,575.06 could be trans-
ferred back into the LEEA or
brought forward as revenue,
for use as payment of Sheriff
deputies' education.
Comm. Money commented
on Quarles letter concerning
the Coastal Construction Set-.
back Line, stating he was a
firm believer of property
owners having choice of use'
of their property and was
sorry he couldn't attend the
Tallahassee meeting. At
Quarles' request that the
Board support St. Joe Paper
Company's effort to prohibit
the Department of Natural
Resources jurisdiction on
property not fronting the
Gulf of Mexico from Range
Marker 5 (Beacon Hill) to 30,
Chairman Branch stated the .
Board would support this
fully.
Upon motion by Comm.
Money, second by Comm.
Traylor, and unanimous
vote, the Board approved line
item budget amendments
requested by Port St. Joe
Ambulance Director Miller-
gren.
Port St. Joe Ambulance
Director Millergren report-
ed, in an effort to cut costs he
had designated employee
Bobby Plair as Supervisor
and was paying him an
annual salary instead of an
hourly rate. However, other
EMT's earnings were more
per year due to being paid for
extra hours worked and Plair
wasn't paid for his overtime.
Millergren then requested
Plair's salary be raised from
$10,200 to $13,000. Upon mo-
tion by Comm. Money, se-
cond by Comm. Owens, and
unanimous vote, the Board
approved Port St. Joe Ambu-
lance employee Bobby
Plair's salary being in-
creased to $12,000 annually.
Millergren reported em-
ployee Manuel Duby was
resigning.
Port St. Joe Ambulance
Director Millergren reported
the Mexico Beach Town
Council approved an equip-
ment agreement previously
approved by the Gulf County
Commission. Millergren then
reported he had been select-
ed as Chairman of a fourteen
county district concerning
distribution of EMS grants in
the state of Florida.
Upon recommendation by
Building Inspector Manuel,
Comm. Owens moved the
Board grant a Utility Permit
Variance to Lighthouse Utili-
ties Incorporation's contrac-
tor to cut two entrance roads
to Gulf Pines Subdivision for
installation of water lines,
with Lighthouse Utilities
agreeing to repair road to
original condition with ce-,
ment (also, to place casings
under road to prevent neces-
sity of further road cuts).
Comm. Birmingham second-
ed the motion and it passed
unanimously.
After report by Building


Inspector Manuel of Future
requirement of Fire Inspec-
tors within each jurisdiction,
the Board approved Man-
uel's request to ask the
following send a representa-
tive to a'Fire Inspection
Meeting being organized for
area counties: County Build-
ing Inspection Department,
Beaches Fire Department,
City of Wewahitchka Fire
Department and City of Port
St. Joe Fire Department.
Upon motion by Comm.

ence in Daytona.

stated this is an unrecorded
subdivision and is no differ-
ent that the subdivisions the
Board accepted maintenance

authorized Comm. Money
and Building Inspector Man-
uel the option, if the City
doesn't accept this proposal,
to offer the city this service
for receipt of all or 1/4 fees at
city fee scale.
Comm. Ownes moved the
Board increase Civil Defense
Director Larry Wells salary
$200.00 per month and his

What to Look for



In Buying Plants


for Start of Spring Gardening


By ROY LEE CARTER
Extension Agent
Many Florida gardeners
will be buying plants during
the next few months as they
start their spring gardening.
So let's try to answer their
common question. What do I
look for when buying a plant?
Plants, like all goods and
services, come in many
sizes, shapes and qualities. It
is just as important to
evaluate a plant before pur-
chase as it is to carefully
inspect a garment or home
appliance.
A cheap plant, in most
instances, is exactly what the
name implies. You may pay
very little but you will
probably get little in return.
Nurseries will periodically
have a sale where they offer
top quality at a. minimum
price. But, this is an excep-
tion to the rule, not a
common occurrence. In most
cases the best plants will.be
the most expensive. But how
do you. determine the best?
First of all, patronize a
reputable nurseryman who'
Shas a neat and presentable
place. A sloppy nursery often
indicates poorly maintained
plants. Secondly, inspect
each plant individually.
Don't fall for the "hard sell'
'-where you are not allowed to
see all your plants.
If the plants are tagged
according to grades and
standards as established by
the Florida Division of Plant
Industry, your selection is
much easier. A plant graded
as Florida fancy is an
exceptionally healthy and
vigorous plant which is very
well shaped, well branched,
.and well foliated.
The Florida No. 2 is
healthy, vigorous, fairly well
shaped, with fair branching
and fair foliage. Any plant
not meeting the above stan-
dard is a Florida No. 3. This
last grade is for culls. Lower
the grade at the beginning,
the less chance the plant has
of being a go.d one, at
maturity. -
If the plants are not tagged
as a grade, then you must
inspect them closely. Here
are some guidelines along a
negative approach. Down-
grade any plant having the
following characteristics:
Lack of health and vigor or
excessive succulence, an un-
healthy plant is apparent in
most cases. Look for weak,
poorly formed, scarred,
.cracked or peeling trunks or


department clean up hurri-
cane debris as quickly as
possible, following comple-
tion of normal work duties,
and requested Comm. Tray-
lor instruct the Road.Super-
intendent the same. Comm.
Owens stated upon installa-
tion of a new engine in a
Mosquito Control truck, one
vehicle will be available for
specific use to haul debris.
Sheriff Harrison reported
he was housing 13 prisoners
and two trustees from Frank-.
lin County on an emergency
basis due to Franklin County
Jail boiler blowing up. The
Sheriff stated if this contin-
ues for an extended period of
time, he would request the
commission transfer the per
day charge to his budget
from the General Fund to
supplement his budget to
cover the additional expen-
ses.
Chairman Branch appoint-
ed Civil Defense Director
Wells to coordinate and pur-
sue meeting State require-
ments for adoption of the
Comprehensive Plan (includ-
ing trying to get the GC
Planning Commission ac-
tive).
Upon motion by Comm.
Owens, second by Comm.
Money, and unanimous vote,
the Board authorized Civil
Defense Director Wells to
select two persons meeting
guidelines to replace Barney
McCroan and C.R. Lamber-
son who resigned as Gulf
County's representatives to
the Florida Panhandle Indus-
try Council.
Per the request of Walter
Duren, Chairman Branch
asked Road Commissioner
Traylor instruct Road De-
partment personnel remove
a building (Skating Rink -
Duren doesn't own), from
Niles Road, in Oak Grove,
which was blown down dur-
ing the hurricane.
The Chairman scheduled


February 25, 1986 as the date
to receive bids to provide
services for closure of the
Port St. Joe Landfill.
There being no further
business, the meeting ad-
journed.


CARTER
branches. Poorly distributed
branches usually lead to
"leggy" plants and should be
avoided. A compact plant is
usually more desirable.
Avoid plants having leaves of
improper shape, size or
color. Excessive yellowing of
leaves is an indication of a
problem. Examine leaves for
insect, disease and mechani-
cal damage.
For container grown
plants, make sure the root
system is well established
but not root-bound or grow-
ing out of the containers.


Roots should be firmly incor-
porated throughout the soil,
but not protruding outside or
penetrating into the ground.
Most container plants with-
in a species are priced
according to size. Plants
growing in two gallon con-
tainers are generally larger
and more expensive than
those in one gallon contain-
ers. However, make your
selection on plant size rather
than container size. Fre-
quently, plants growing in
larger containers are the
sarne size or only a little
larger than those in smaller
pots.
Also make sure the plant is
adapted to your area. Will
the plant survive the low or
high temperatures in your
area? Will it flower and-or
fruit properly? Is it tolerant
to salt spray, if you live in
such an area? And is it
labeled properly as to species
and, variety?
If you can follow most of
these suggestions on how to
select a good plant, you will
obtain quality and save mo-
ney.

Time to Get


Your Vegetable


Garden Going


Although it might seem
like winter just began, it's
already time to be thinking
about spring vegetable gar-
dening. You should be plan-
ning and taking care of some
of the preliminary work right
now. After you've chosen a
good garden site, a spot with
full sun all day, or for as long
as possible and when you
.have decided which varieties
of vegetables you will plant,
you ieed to take paper and
pencil in hand and actually
make a.detailed, scale dia-
gram of your garden.
The proper garden design
can spell the difference be-
tween success and failure.
My information for this arti-
cle was provided by Exten-
sion Specialist Jim Stephens,
of the University of Florida's
Institute of Food and Agri-
cultural Sciences (IFAS).
Your garden plan should
include several things the
location of each crop, the
amount to be planted, the
planting date, and the vari-
ety of each vegetable you
intend to grow. Try to glan'
your garden so crops that
will be planted on about the
same date, and reach matur-
ity at about the same time,
are close together. By setting
up different groups or blocks
within the garden you will be
able to keep the whole garden
in production as much as
possible.
Within each block, arrange
crops by size, starting from
east to west, plant low
growing vegetables, things
like radishes, turnips, and
collards along one side. Plant
those of medium height, such
as pepper, squash and so on
in the middle of the block.
Put all vegetables such as
sweet corn, pole beans and
stake tomatoes along .the
other side. This avoids hav-
ing the low growing vegeta-
bles stuck in the shade of
taller plants. Run the rows
north and south, so each row
will receive the same amount
of sun.
You can plant two or more
crops in a single row, as long
as they require about the
same spacing. You can mix
crops of different sizes in the
same row. For example, you
could interplant a fast grow-
ing crop like radishes, with a
slow growing crop. The rad-
ishes would be picked before
the slower maturing plants
needed the space.
Don't plant too much of one
crop at a time especially
those vegetables that must
be eaten shortly after they
are harvested. To have fresh
produce over a long period,
plant smaller amounts of the
same crop at one to 14 day
intervals. This is a particu-
larly good idea with crops
that have a short period or
peak quality things like
beans, sweet corn, and peas.
You might also prolong the


season for a crop by planting
two or more varieties that
have different maturity
dates. Be -sure you plant
sweet corn in blocks, rather
than single rows. This will
give better pollenation, and
help you produce more corn.
It's a good idea to put crops
like strawberries, that span
more than one growing sea-
sen, to one side of the garden
otherwise, they might get in
the way ofLseasonal cultiva-
tion of other plants. Be sure
to leave plenty of room
between rows, so you can
work easily with whatever
tools you need to use.
It's best to design your
garden so you can rotate
crops from year to year. If
you avoid growing the same
crop, or the same type of
crop, in the same spot more
than once every three years,
you may reduce the build up
of soil borne diseases which
can reduce yields.

his wishes he would double
his troubles." Ben Franklin

Fishing Rules Facing A Change


for March Meeting of Comm.


Staff recommendations
concerning regulations for
the 1986-87 hunting and fish-
ing seasons were brought
before the five-member
Game and Fresh Water Fish
Commission for discussion at
its meeting in Tallahassee
recently.
The Commission will con-
sider public input on these
recommended rule revisions
and will give notice of the
proposed rules in'the Florida
/ Administrative, Weekly.
Adoption of the 1986-87 hunt-
ing and fishing regulations
' .will take place at the March
Commission meeting.


Meanwhile, an experimen-
tal slot limit regulation for
largemouth bass fishing on
Lake: Talquin in northwest
.Florida was enacted by the
Commission..
Beginning March 1, the
regulation will require Lake
Talquin fishermen who catch
largemouth bass between 11
and 14 inches in total length
(tip of nose to the longest
part of. the tail) to return
them to the water unharmed.
Also at the meeting, the.
design which will be used on
the 1986-87 Florida waterfowl
stamp was selected. The


Commissioners selected a
painting of a pair of canvas-
backs in. flight by Robert
Steiner of San Francisco,
Calif. Steiner, who still con-
siders Florida his home, is a
graduate of Miami Norland
Senior High-School in Dade
County. Prints of this duck
.stamp will be marketed and
sold through Steiner Prints,
201 5th Ave., Suite 8, San
Francisco, Calif.,.94118. Ro-
yalties from the sale of these
prints will go to the Commis-
sion's waterfowl manage-
ment program.
In other business, the Com-


mission elected Williarft G.
Bostick, Jr. as Commission
chairman for 1986, and Mrs:
Giblert W. Humphrey .-as
vice-chairman. Bostick' a
trucking executive from Win-
ter Haven, recently was
reappointed to *a five-y-ar
term to the Commission :by
Gov. Bob Graham. He has
served on the Commission
since 1981. Mrs. Humphrey,
of Miccosukee, a long-time
outdoor enthusiast and con-
servationist, has served on
the Commission since 1984.
The next Commission
meeting will take place in
