Attorney Cecil G. Costin
told The Star the action was
taken to prevent Gulf County
from having to pay out huge
legal fees to fight a legal
battle which had already
been decided in several diffe-

neys on both sides of the issue
have reached a compromise
agreement to allow the Gulf
Board to revert to the single
member district concept in
an orderly manner. Costin
said one of the big bottle-
necks to the new style of
electing Board Members will
be getting an accurate cen-
sus and dividing the groups
into equitable districts so far
as population numbers are'
concerned. Districts must be
as nearly equal in population
numbers as possible.
COURTS HAVE RULED
Costin said courts have
ruled in favor of single
member districts for 'school

and start a clamp-down on its'
compliance.


Tomlinson had been the
target of the ordinance when
some of his neighbors filed
complaints about several old
cars being in the back yard of
his residence on Ninth Street,
Chief Maige said at the time.
there were 13cars in the back

Barrier Is Named to

Citizens Federal Board
Citizens Federal Savings and-Loan Association of Port
St. Joe this week announced the appointment of W. W.
Barrier, Jr.; as a member of its board of directors. Barrier
will fill the unexpired term of the spot on the board left
vacant by the recent death of E. F. Gunn, who served in
that capacity for many years.
Barrier will begin his tenure as a member of the board
of directors immediately.
Carolyn Young, manager of the local savings and loan
institution said, "We at Citizens Federal feel that with Mr.
Barrier's vast experience as a builder and general
contractor, he will be a valuable asset to our association."

THE ADVENT OF baseball sea-

to remind me that the sport was once
a very important part of the social life
of Port St. Joe. I'm not old enough to
remember, but some of the old-timers
say baseball was a very important
part of the scheme of things around
here during the 20's and 30's. I can
aftest to the fact that it was an
important activity during the 40's and
early 50's.
As I understand it, back in the 20's
and 30's, several young men were
Satractd to Port St. Joe and given
incentive to stay, because of their
.baseball playing ability.
. A few years ago, the late Jimmy
Kilbourn brought in an old circular
advertising an all-day excursion to
Port St. Joe on the Apalachicola
Northern Railroad. The excursion

fight under a house over in
Henry County back right
after the war that registered
5.2 on the Richter scale.
Dad never moved a mus-
cle when a fight started. He
listened quite intently like he
was seeing which dogs were
fighting and who was getting

an "underneath the house"
fight was my mother's job.
You ever notice that in those
days mothers always had a

the back door she'd go. She'd
wait till the dogs got kind'a
close then she'd "let 'em
have it" with the water and
yell, "Hey, you dogs, stop
that NOW!" I don't believe
that those dogs paid atten-
tion to one word that my
mother said but when that
scalding water hit them -
well, they decided to go over
and check on those dogs in
Henry County.
I've said all of that to say
this. You'd think that today
I'd have a few dogs around?

about 11 years ago. Despite
my protest Cathy fed the cat.
The cat stayed and stayed. It
cost me eighty dollars once
when the cat got sick. Just
recently it cost me thirty five
more when we had to
remove part of the cat's tail.
And then seventeen more for
some shots. I've got $132.00
plus food for 11 years in a cat
that I don't even like. Since
the first operation the cat
has been staying in the house
at night. I try to stay away
from this cat. I don't even
tell folks that we have a cat.
A couple of nights ago I'm
sleeping about as good as a
man can sleep when I'm

by this time I'm so tired that
I drift back to sleep anyway.
I'm awakened in about ten
minutes because

can't move, so I slowly lift
my head and find myself

then.
+++++
THE BLACK COMMUNITY here -
in Port St. Joe had their baseball team


two-man team and they put on regular
exhibitions along with their games,
which drew big crowds.,
I don't remember Bouie's first
name, but I remember when I was a
boy in my early teens, we would get
out on the baseball field beside the.
ANRR office building to play baseball
on Sunday afternoon. Bouie would
come out and do a little pitching for
us. Every once in a while, he would
give us one of his big-time pitches and
it would come sizzling in straight for
our back pockets. Then, about two feet
in front of the plate, and after the
batter had bailed out, the ball would
break and come sailing right across
the middle of the plate.
He had the most wicked curve ball
I have ever seen.

THE THING WHICH surprises
me; is, that with the baseball legacy
which Port St. Joe has-the history of
producing top-rate teams, and its past
interest in baseball-that we don't
have more local support for the high
school baseball team than we do.
Football draws the crowds here in


Port St. Joe. In more recent years,
basketball has started holding its own
in attracting public attention. For at
least the last 10 years, Port St. Joe has
flirted with a state basketball cham-
pionship, or won it, every year. The
result has been considerable and
growing public interest in basketball.
Baseball, however, draws only a
handful to the local games, which are
usually pretty good games.
It isn't just here in Port St. Joe.
The baseball 'teams all over our
playing aiea draw slim crowds, from
an area which was at one time,
rife with baseball fever.
When you get to examining the
entire baseball program here in Port
St. Joe, you find there are at least
twice as many boys involved in the
baseball program as there are in any
other sport played here. The support,
however, with the exception of the
Dixie League program, is much to be
desired.
I'm going to attend more baseball
games this year. I hope you do, too.
Baseball is a good sport and deserves
our support.

lIo SHAD

-PHANTRY
by Wendell Campbell




Shoe in the Road

There are a lot of things I wonder about. There are
just as many that I can't get answers to. I would like to
list a few of them and, if any of you have the answer to
any of them, I would appreciate your writing or calling
me and let me know what the answer is.
*How high is the sky? Sure, space ships have gone
to the moon and some of the unmanned ones have gone
beyond, but, to date, none have reached the end. How
far does it go? Where is the end?
*How deep is the ocean? I know, they have
machines (sonic something) that are supposed to ac-
curately measure the depth, but has anyone been down
there to make sure?
*Who's going to bury the last man? This is a sticky
one because I have heard for years the world is coming
to an end. Some preachers will almost swear to it. This
would be a good one for some sharp inventor to start on
right now. If he could devise a way for someone to bury
himself right now, he could probably make a mint in
his lifetime.
*Who's going to put my children through college
when I'm dead broke? This is one that perplexes me
most. I really don't believe there's anyone on earth
with that much money.
*This one is real tricky. I have never asked anyone
about this one because I just thought about it yester-
day. Where do all the shoes come from that I find in the
road?
It was just yesterday that I spotted what seemed to
be a perfectly good shoe sitting about half way between
the curb and the center line of the street. On close ex-
amination I found that it was, in fact, an almost new,
boy's, size 9% tennis shoe. There was only one and it
was for the right foot.
I looked around, up and down the street, under all
the cars parked nearby, but there was no other shoe to
be found.
That's when I started thinking. That was not the
first time I had seen one shoe in the road... not by a
long shot! I suddenly remembered many times and
many places that I had seen one shoe in the road. It was
just that I had never thought about it before yesterday.
And, it was the first time I had taken time to examine
one. It seemed perfect in every respect except for a
strong odor, which is not unusual, especially in a tennis
shoe.
The question is, how did one shoe happen to be in
the road? I have never seen a pair of shoes in the road,
have any of you? If so, where did you see them? Did
you stop and try them on? Did they fit, and, if so, are
you still wearing them? If they didn't fit, did you give
or sell them to someone else?
Really, how did one shoe happen to be in the road?
Did someone hang their foot out the window and a
strong gust of wind from an eighteen wheeler blow it
off? If so, why didn't they stop and pick it up?
,: The person could have gotten mad at his-wife and
; pulledit offand threwit at her and missed. It ltokslikd "'
it would have been in the ditch if that had happened.
Maybe his wife was mad at him and threw his own shoe
at him. That would account for it being in the middle of
the road. What do you think?
I think it's a big mystery and I'm going to in-
vestigate further. In the meantime, If you come up
with any clues or ideas, please let me know. This thing
could get out of hand.
Think about it the next time you see one shoe in the
road!

The Three Rivers Science and
Engineering Fair will be March 6 and
7 in Panama City at the Naval Coastal
Systems Center's gymnasium. About
165 students from schools in Bay,
Calhoun, Gulf, Holmes,-Jackson and
Washington counties are expected to
enter exhibits in this regional compe-
tition.
Ned Witherspoon, science fair di-
rector, announced an action-packed
schedule for the two-day fair. The
morning of March 6, students will
register and set up displays. In the
afternoon, judges will examine the
exhibits and interview students. From
6:30p.m..to 9 p.m. the fair will be open
to the public. The public is requested
to come in the NCSC gate at Thomas
Drive and follow signs to the
gymnasium parking area. Open house
for the public also will be on Friday,
March 7, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
This is the 21st consecutive year
NCSC has provided manpower, facili-
ties and services for the 25 year old
regional fair. The Chipola, Choctaw-
hatchee and Apalachicola are the
three rivers associated with the fair's


name. The Chipola runs through the
center of the region, the Choctawhat-
chee is on the western border and the
Apalachicola is on the eastern border.
The fair has a junior division for
sixth through eighth graders and a
senior division for ninth through
twelfth graders. Both divisions have
13 competition categories: behavioral
and social sciences, biochemistry,
botany, chemistry, computer science,
earth and space sciences, engineer-
ing, environmental sciences, mathe-
matics, medicine and health, micro-
biology, physics and zoology.
Students vie in this tough regional
event for an impressive list of prizes
and awards which come as tax-deduc-
tible contributions from businesses,
industries, health organizations, pro-
fessional societies, civic clubs and
individuals.
At the top of the list is the senior
division grand prize, an all expense
paid trip to the International Science
and Engineering Fair, May 11-17, in
Fort Worth, Texas.
Grand prize in the junior division is

Bees Work Hard


and Die Young


Bob Funderburk gave the
Kiwanis Club an insight to
bee-keeping Tuesday at the
regular meeting of the club.
Funderburk, who keeps up
about 400 hives oflbees in his
spare time, said the job of
producing honey has many of
the hazards which face the
farmer-production is uncer-
tain and the price the pro-
ducer will receive is even
less certain.
Funderlurk said the bee-
keepers suffered hardships
during the heavy freeze
which hit Florida!in January
of last year. "The cold killed
off much of the nectar
producing blossoms. so bee-
keepers moved their hives to
areas which still had flower-
ing plants which resulted in
over-crowding of these
areas". He said producers in
otherarues, desiring to come
up with the prized tupelo
honey will move, their bees
into the tupelo areas during
the blooming times and
cause overcrowding in this
area. "This is the only place
in the nation where the tupelo
tree grows", he said.
A normal hive is composed
of some 50,000 to 60,000 bees,
all tended by one'queen. The

queen's only job is to contin-
ously lay eggs, which pro-
duce the workers and drones.
A worker bee lives about 15
days and apparently dies
from over-work. A drone's
only duty is to fertilize the
queen and is killed off by
other bees when the winter
months come along and food
is short.
Funderburk said the queen
bee will hatch out more
worker bees as the honey
production starts and slack
off as production falls. A
queen bee will live for about
three years.

Thursday of last week, "
Gene Raffield showed the
club members through the
plant and explained that
present facilities and a
freezer which is 'under con-
struction will give the com-
plex the capability of hand-
ling and processing more
than a million pounds of
seafood products each day.
"We don't throw anything

said.
Raffield told the club the
new Raffield Fisheries would
fulfill one of the dreams of

Naval Drug Program


Shark Beat


The Navy's Alcohol Drug
Substance Safety Action Pro-
gram (NADSAP) can help.
NADSAP's site coordinator
for NAS Sigonella, near
Pensacola is Dorothy Govan.
The NADSAP Program's ob-
jective is to increase a
person's awareness of their
responsibility for their own
lifestyle and how alcohol and
other substances impact on
their lives. The course also
covers life management
skills and the wide range of
alternatives to alcohol and
drug usage.
The 36 hour course, con-
tracted to the Navy by the
University of Arizona, is
usually held for two week-
ends. It is the first level of a
three level structure within
the Navy that addresses drug
and alcohol abuse.
"I've stayed with the pro-
gram," Govan said, "be-
cause I have; enjoyed the


work and because of what the
program is trying to do."
The Govans are leaving
soon, reporting to Norfolk,
Va., for their next tour of
duty. "This job has not only
been a positive experience,"
she said, "but a learning
process for me. I intend to
continue working with
NADSAP back in Norfolk.
It's one of the most encourag-
ing 'people programs' I have
worked with. It's been a
pleasure to have been a part
of Sigonella's NADSAP Pro-
gram," Govan concluded.
Mrs. Govan is a 1977
graduate of Port St. Joe High
School. She is the daughter of
the late Robert and Mrs.
Vinia Mae Boykins of Port St.
Joe.

COLOR CONTACT
LENSES
The latest good news in the
.olor contact lens field is
;h'at soft, color contact
enses are now available not
mly for daily wear, but for
EXTENDED WEAR and
rORIC LENSES (for the
orrection of astigmatism).
Iore wearers of soft con-
acts can now enjoy the cos-
netic benefits of green, blue,
aqua or amber permanently-
inted lenses.
The. optics of soft color
contact lenses are as precise
as the clear ones. They also
enhance the color of your
eyes and often make the lens
easier to see, handle and in-
iert; the color makes it
easier to find a lens you may
have accidentally dropped.
These lenses do not change
the-color of what you see;
they are not sunglasses; and
they require the same kind
of cleaning and disinfecting
as any other soft contact
lenses.
Ask your optometrist if
your prescription is now
available in soft color con-
tact lenses.

IN LIKE A LAMB.
OUT LIKE A LION
If this seems twisted around to you we intended it
Sto be. For in this phrasing it illustrates how-most
people react to going to their doctor for a physical
check-up. It would not be natural if you did not have
some worries and thus approached your entrance into
his office a little meekly.
But, when it is all over and the doctor has
pronounced you fit and well it makes you want to roar
South of there like a lion. The air smells a little sweeter
and there is a spring to your step you didn't notice
before. It's worth going! .

pharmacy products. We consider this trust a
privilege and a duty. May we be your personal

Season forSharks


It's all over until next year.
Tuesday night, the Port St.'
Joe Sharks hosted the Hamil-
Ston Trojans in the Region
II-AA playoffs and were
pushed out of contention for
the state AA basketball
championship play-offs by
one huge point. The Trojans
edged the Sharks, 79-78 in
overtime play, which saw
both teams battle on almost
even terms for the entire
game.
Robert Harris had guided
the Sharks floor play bril-
liantly all night long, sur-
prised everyone by passing
to Doug Robinson, who was
alone under the goal in the
final seconds of the regula-
tion game. The pass went
awry and ended up in a


turn-over which allowed
Hamilton to tie the score at
the end of regulation play.
The Sharks had a two-point
lead with less than 20 seconds
remaining on the clock, when
the fatal pass skipped out of
Robinson's grasp and ended
up out of bounds, despite
Robinson's heroic efforts to
keep control of the ball.
Hamilton's ace, Greg Jef-
ferson went in for a lay-up to
tie the game at the end of
regulation play, but Harris
blocked his shot. Unfortu-
nately, Harris was called for.
a foul, also, giving Jefferson
two free throws. The charity
shotswere both good, forcing
the game into overtime.
In overtime, Hamilton tos-
sed in six un-answered points
before the Sharks rallied and
pulled up even with the
Trojans.
Then lightning struck. With
a one point Shark lead, the.
Trojans were called for tra-
veling. With only six seconds
left on the clock, Jenkins was
called for walking as-he


inbounded the ball and the
Trojans had the ball back.
The Trojans called on Jeffer-
son, whose shot fell short, but
Anthony Thomas was right
there to tip it in and score as
the game was ending.
The Sharks took a 23-16
lead in the first period, but
after that, it was almost shot
for shot with the lead chang-
ing hands several times
during the game. "We had
our chance, but just didn't
grab it at the right time",
coach-Jim Belin said. "Still,
we had a very good year with
our 19-8 record. The only
thing which hurts is that we
had what it takes to go all the
way, but we just.fell 'short".
The Sharks had an evenly
balanced attack, with four
men scoring in double figures
and only four points dividing
the top four in scoring. Josh
Jenkins led the way with his
19 markers, followed by
Doug Robinson and Dexter
Baxter with 18 points each
and Robert Harris with 15
points. Curtis Beard broke

Port St. Joe's Sharks went
through the opposition in the
District 3-AA basketball tour-
nament without a blemish
last week end, even after a
shaky start with Florida
High on Friday night.
Sharks 53, Florida High52
The game with Florida
High was just one of those
games a good team plays
every once in a while. The
fact that it happenediina a
tournament added two or
three more gray hairs to the
head of coach Jim Belin, who
is too young to be having
gray hair.
The only respectable per-
iod the Sharks had in the
entire game was the second,
when they racked up 19
points and allowed the Dem-
ons to pit only 12 on:rthe
board.
In the end, it was defense
and not offense, which won
for the Sharks. Wjh'. 22
seconds left in the kamemand

straight baskets from "his

the Tiger scoring machine to
operating before the Sharks
finally cut off what was
proving to be a "gimme"
shot for the Tigers.
After that first period, the
game was played on almost
an even basis, with -the
Tigers taking the lead only
once-briefly-when Gene
Bess put the Tigers in the
lead by two points with a field
goal with 5:50 left.
Then Doug-Robinson, who
sat out most of the first half
with two fouls to his credit,
took command. After Dexter
Baxter had tied the score on
a short jumper, Robinson put
the Sharks ahead to stay,
when he tipped in a missed

with a slam dunk on a fast

tion lost or damaged," says
Lawrence.
A new crop insurance plan,
called Actual Production His-
tory (APH), is available this
year to producers of soy-
beans, wheat, barley, and
oats in addition to corn,
grain, sorghum, peanuts, cot-
ton, rice and other crops.
Producers of these crops
may now qualify for higher
yield guarantees by proving
their yield history. Rates
have been developed to offer
reduced premium' for pro-
ducers with above average
yields. "With the increased
cost of producing a crop, it
makes good sense to take a
look at this new concept,"
says Lawrence.


To find out more about the
APH plan, producers' should
contact a local, authorized
agent. To select an agent,
producers may check the list
of agents at their local ASCS
office. March 15 is the final
deadline for applications.

The World Is


Getting Smaller


By: Revw Jerry R. Huft
It is often said that, "the
world is getting smaller." I
heard that statement for the
first time when I was a child,
but it was several years
before I understood that the
comment was in reference to
communication. As commun-
ication systems improve, the
world becomes a closer com-
munity.
Good communications fos-
ter good relationships. Sum-
mit meetings are held to keep
countries from going to war.
Contracts are written to
create order in business
relationships. Married cou-
ples share their feelings and
establish good marriages.
And believers call upon God
in prayer to cement an
eternal relationship by com-
municating love and con-
cern.
Most people agree that
good communications foster
good relationships. Yet there
are stumbling blocks which
interfere with understand-
ing. The biggest problem in
s1 communications is silence or
lack of response.
This is true on internation-
al levels and it is true in
interperDsoial relationships.
It is even true in the prayer
life of believers.
Failure 'to communicate
with God has many effects on
our lives. Something drains
out of any relationship when


Catch the Splrit
STHE UNITEDMETHODSTCHURCHU


one party fails to respond.
I have noticed that my own
prayer life has its ups and
downs. Perhaps every pray-
ing person has discovered
that there are some good and
some bad prayer days.
I go through times when
my prayers bring great
peace, joy and depth of
understanding. But, I also
have times when my prayers
feel shallow, sparce, ahd
ineffective.
On bad days I feel depres-
sed, short-tempered, and out
of sorts. This is especially
true if a friend isks, "Did
you pray about it?" Such a
question only adds to my
guilt.
There have been times
when I felt very inadequate
after reading the eloquent
words' of a beautifully
phrased prayer. There have
also been times when I
became convinced of my own
short-comings as I listened to
the heart-felt words of ano-
ther believer, who was ob-
viously much further along
than I.
But then, on other occa-
sions I have been able to
respond to God's grace and
love by communicating with
him in the most satisfying
way. Strange as it may seem,
some of my closest moments
with Christ have come when I
simply said, "God help me."
The words, "God help me."

The government of Jean-
Claude "Baby Doc" Duvalier fell
in Haiti and the United States
government does not seem the
least bit upset. Duvalier, like his
father before him, led a corrupt
regime which relied on terrorism
to keep the people in line. He re-
warded his friends lavishly and
there arq reports that he had
millions stashed away in Swiss
bank accounts.
The American State Depart-
ment had warned Duvalier that
his power was eroding and
paved the way for him to leave
the country before there could
be general bloodbath. The
new Haiti rules appear to ap-
preciate the role the United
States played in avoiding
bloodshed and President
Reagan has indicated that he
will provide economic aid to
Haiti, one of the poorest coun-
tries in the Western
Hemisphere.
The new leaders have called

The recent spy exchange is
just another indication of eased
tensions between the United
States and the Soviet Union.
Ever since the Summit between
Soviet leader Gorbachev and
President Reagan, we have
seen many signs that there'is a
thaw in relations and we may
see genuine progress when
Gorbachev and Reagan meet
again later this year.
We still have many differ-
ences including missile ratios in
Europe, Afghanistan and Cen-r
tral America. Certainly President
Reagan will not back down on
matters of vital importance to
the security.of the United States
and we can expect Gorbachev,
to maintain the Kremlin hard
line in many areas.
There is room for negotia-
tion on many of these subjects
and arms control talks continue.
We all want peaceful relations
throughout the world and we
are far better off if the leaders
of our nations are talking with
one another. President Reagan
has always indicated his great
willingness to negotiate and the
spy exchange is important for
improved relations with the
Soviet Union.

discuss planting seeds direct-
ly in the garden. My informa-
tion was provided by Exten-
sion V6getable Specialist Jim
Stephens, of the University of
Florida's Institute of Food
and. Agricultural Services.
Besides costing less than
transplants, a major advan-
tage of starting a home
vegetable garden directly
from seeds is that you can
choose from a wider selec-
tion of varieties. A garden
center may have several
varieties of seeds for a given
crop, but only one or two
varieties of transplants. Al-
so, some crops such as
beans, corn, cucumbers, and
turnips don't transplant very
well. It's best to start these
from seeds. On the other
hand, many crops do trans-
plant well. They include
things like tomatoes, broc-
coli, collards, and-lettuce. If
transplants are available for
such crops, they're probably
a better bet than starting
from seeds unless you're

While most vegetables can
be grown from seeds, there
are exceptions such as
sweet potatoes, Irish pota-
toes and strawberries. For
specific recommendations on
the crops you want to grow,
check with your garden
center, or see your County
Extension Agent.
If you decide to start from
seeds, get the best you can
find. Seed quality could mean
the difference between suc-
cess 'and failure in your
garden. So, always buy good
seeds from a reliable dealer.
For a few crops, you can
save seeds from your garden.
But, for many others that-
really isn't 'practical. Since
most seeds are relatively
inexpensive; you're probably
better .off buying those you

The State of Florida has again judged the quality of care
provided by this nursing home to merit the superior designa-
tion. We have been rated as a Superior Nursing Home every
year since that designation came into existence in 1982. There
are only two other homes in the Panhandle of Florida who can
make that claim. How have we done it? We did it the only way
it can be done one day at a time one person at a time. We
did it because the people whose names you see listed here cared
enough to do it that way. This home is operated by Advocare,
Inc. James Hall. owner. James Dunseith, Administrator.

Howling Sucess! Senior Informer
by Jerry Stokoe


by: Jerry Stokoe
The Second Annual Wom-
- unless Beauty Contest was a
highly successful fund raiser
for the Gulf County Senior
Citizens Association, Inc.


Over 500 people filled the
High School commons area
Saturday night. All the seats
in the house were filled and
the audience was elbow to
elbow down the side walls.


s Pregnant Idea Wins


The room was full of laughter
and excitement.
It was an evening of
entertainment for everyone.
The nine contestants gave it
their all to try and dethrone
the previous title holder
Johnny Linton. It was not to
be. Johnny had said all along
that no one had an act to top
his but he did welcome all
challenges. This contest
would not have been as
successful without Johnny's
help. You are a great friend
of the senior citizens Johnny.
Sheriff Al Harrison came
very close but he hadlo settle
for second place. DeWayne
-Manuel really charmed the
audience and the judges with
his cute rendition of "I'm a
Little Teapot" wearing his
pink panty hose and long
blonde hair. DeWayne placed
third and was voted as "Mr.
Congeniality". Our 1983 run-
ner up, Wendell Campbell,
sang his heart out for the
audience and placed fourth;
Kevin Byrne placed fifth with
his poetic talents and bare
midriff and overall perform-
ance.
All the contestants had a


great time trying to capture
the audience's reaction and
believe me they did. The top
five received trophies and
the winner received a beauti-
ful arrangement of 12 silk
roses which was donated by
The Decorator Den.
The Murphy girls, Janet
and Cindy gave us all a treat.
They sang their hearts out
for fifteen minutes and if you
weren't there you missed a
great performance.
The Gulf County Sr. Citi-
zens Association wishes to
express their deepest appre-
ciation to the winners and all
the contestants, Floyd Dick-
ens, Theodore Taylor, Cole-
man Kirkland and Robert
Maige. A very special thanks
to Ken Murphy who provided
the excellent public address
system and who tended the
tape and record player all
evening. Thank you Ken, you
were a blessing to us all. We
also want to thank our five
judges, Buzz Leonard, Beth
Coulliette, Flo Melton, Lt;
Col. Art Tate, and Wayne
Richburg. The'judges had a
very difficult task but did a
superb job. Let us not forget
Mrs. Sherri Bowen who lent


First Place


her talents to help the men
learn that great dance rou-
tine.
The evening's events were
cqrdinated by Fred Allen.
H introduced the first part
of the program then ran back
and forth from the dressing
room and rear of stage to
insure all upcoming skits and
accompanying music well
coordinated with the emcee
and the recording monitor.
Thank you Fred!
Plans are coming along for
the 1986 seafood festival in
Port St. Joe. We have had a
lot of interest shown in the
community. There are plans
for having up to 20-30 booths
of all descriptions. There will
be lots of fish and seafood to
eat and many items found at
a carnival such as sno cones,
hot dogs, barbeque sand-
wiches, pickles and soft
drinks. There will also be live
entertainment every hour
which will be announced.
Anyone interested in re-
serving a booth please call
Dan McGuinness at 229-8244
or Jerry Stokoe at 229-8466.
Church groups, arts and
crafts creators, mens groups


this is your chance to help the
senior citizens and your own
group.
The purpose of this festival
is to raise funds for the
Health & Rehabilitative Ser-
vices emergency fund, Bay
St. Joseph's activity pro-
grams and the Gulf County
Senior Citizens Association.
The cause is just, the oppor-
tunity to help is unlimited.
