Crime Down!

In, County, St. Joe and Wewa
Gulf County is becoming a safer place to live while
other counties and cities are having problems with a
growing crime rate, Sheriff Al Harrison said Tuesday.
Utilizing information received from the Florida Law
Enforcement Agency, Sheriff Harrison said the record
shows a healthy decline in crime in the county and its
incorporated cities.
Gulf county recorded a reduction of 7.1 percent in its
rate of crime, which, included murder, forcible rape,
robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, larceny and motor
vehicle theft.
For the second year in a row, the county reported no
murders committed and only one forcible rape. In 1985
there were no robberies. In the other categories, only one
reflected a rise rather than a reduction in numbers of
crimes committed. The county reported 13 auto thefts in
1985 and only nine in 1984.
Port St. Joe reflected a 34.2 percent reduction in crime
and the City of Wewahitchka led the pack with its 79
percent reduction.
"~'"'Tf the mffire serious'crimes, Port St. Joe reported the
county's lone forcible rape and three of the motor vehicle
thefts. Wewahitchka had neither 'crime committed during
the past year. Both Port St. Joe and Wewahitchka had five
burglaries reported.


Gulf County's School Board hammered out
an answer to a suit filed against them Tuesday
morning. The Board had been filed against
asking that the controversial single member
voting method be adopted for Gulf County.
Nathan Peters, Jr., of Port St. Joe, had filed a
request to the board asking that they go to the
single member district method of electing
officials, rather than continue to use the present
at large system of selecting school board
members by district.
With some changes being made by the Board
in the present make-up of the five districts in the
county, the Board drew up new district lines,
Tuesday and unanimously adopted them to be
presented to counsel for those seeking to change
the voting methods. The only district which
didn't receive at least minor changes was
District 4, which lies in the boundaries of Port St.
Joe and contains the bulk of the black voters in
south Gulf County.
School Superintendent Walter Wilder said
counsel for those seeking the change had
informed the School Board they could not accept
any changes in the boundaries of District 4.
The ;changes are all minor with one
exception. That exception is District 3, which
encompasses all of that area lying north of the
Gulf County line t '-a Beacon Hill lighthouse
and east in a band a -oss the count' to the
Apalachicola River. Precinct Three contains
Highland View, St. Joe Beach, White City and
S Howafd Creek.
The District then follows U.S. 98 south to the
northern western section line west of Jones
Homestead, placing all that area lying south of


Jones Homestead, and all property lying south
and west of Highway 98 to the Franklin County
line, including all of St. Joseph Peninsula.
Under the new plan, population figures will
show a low of 1,288 for District 2, to 1,454 for
District 4.


the School Board plan would introduce single
member district voting to the county this year,
with School Board members from Districts 1, 2
and 5 running under the new method for four
year terms in the fall elections. In 1987, Districts
3 and 4 would run under the single district


A map depicting new drawn lines for Sdhool Board districts as
proposed by the Board in session Tuesday will be presented to
District Court officials. A map of the districts is on page three.


District 1 picked up all of Honeyville and
contains an estimated total of 1,364 voters. The
District was reduced by 105 votes.
District 2 was increased in geographic size to
include Precinct 4 (Overstreet) and Beacon Hill
from the county line to beacon light.
District 2 has 1,288 registered voters.
District 3 took the biggest change with the
removal of Precinct 4 and approximately 200
beach residents. The District then had 250 voters
added by.extending the boundary south, adding
all voters west of Highway 98 to the Jones
Homestead area and then extending to the
southern border with Franklin county. The
District has 1,399 voters.
District 4 was left as is, from the Gulf County
Canal to the north side of 10th Street in Port St.
Joe. The District has 1,454 voters.
District 5 had that section south and west of
Jones Homestead and Highway 98 carved out of
its boundary, removing 250 voters and leaving a
total of 1,443 voters.
In addition to agreeing on the boundaries,


formula for four year terms.
Superintendent Walter Wilder said the new
plan would be presented to the attorneys next
week for their perusal and acceptance or
rejection. Wilder said he fully expected the plan
to be accepted.
"It changes things up somewhat in the
county and it's rushing things to get this all done
by the fall elections, but the Board felt it had no
other choice in the matter if they wanted to save
the county the expense of going to court in the
litigation".
APPROVE BUILDING BID
In another action Tuesday, the Board
approved a bid of $343,000 from M&W
Construction Company of Marianna to construct
a six classroom complex and support facilities to
the Linton Elementary School site in Wewahitch-
ka.
The bid approved Tuesday was the first of a
three-step phase to complete the Linton school

Seeks Donations

for Monument
Veterans Service officer, James Sealey asked for
and obtained permission from the Gulf County
Commission Tuesday to receive public donations for
construction of a monument here in Port St. Joe,
commemorating the sacrifice made by the county's
war dead in the past four wars.
Sealey approached the Commission with the idea of
erecting a monument for the war dead over a month
ago, and received their blessings, then, for the idea.
Sealey said many other counties and cities in this
general area have similar monuments honoring their
deceased citizens who met death in battle or war
related causes.
Sealey told the Commission Tuesday he is going to
utilize area news media for publicizing the fund drive
and that he had already established a depository in the
Wewahitchka State Bank to receive any money
contributed for that purpose.
Sealey told The Star late Tuesday afternoon, he had
already received $300.00 toward the estimated $10,000
needed to pay for the monument. "Here it is the first
day of the fund drive and we already have that kind of
response!" he said.


DOC Comes Back to County

with More Jail Complaints


Gulf County thought it had
the State Department of
Corrections satisfied with the
condition and operation of
the Gulf County jail and the
Commission and Sheriff Al
Harrison had relaxed and
started to enjoy not having
DOC breathing down their
collective necks on a monthly
basis.
The County had installed
special doors, special lights,
special heating and cooling
apparatus, special intercom
systems and hired special
guards.
But, apparently that was-
n't enough.
Sheriff Harrison thought
satisfying all the complaints
against the jail would satisfy
DOC. All it did, apparently,
was to clear the decks to
make way for more com-


plaints.
Last week, the Sheriff's
department was presented
with a new, longer list of
changes or negligence on the
part of the Sheriff's Depart-
mept. The new list of demer-
its includes everything from
failure of the county to
maintain a complete medi-
cal, dental, psychiatric and
immunization record of ev-


ery prisoner to failure to
have a written policy on how
to handle substances which
may be used to manufacture
alcoholic beverages.
Sheriff Harrison was ab-
sent attending a funeral
Tuesday, but the Commis-
sion has asked for a report
from the Sheriff on how he is
to answer the latest epistle
from DOC.


School Fair Tuesday

It seems to be only a matter of
time-and the right case-before
the Supreme Court declares it
constutitional for students to meet
voluntarily in public high schools to
pray and read the Bible. We say it's
about time.
In a 1981 case, the justices had
concluded in an 8-1 decision that
once a state university allows its
facilities to be used by student
organizations, it also must open its
doors voluntary worship by
student religious groups. This
same ruling was not extended to
high schools, however, since the
ruling defined college students as
young adults and "less impres-
sionable" than younger students.
It made no difference, we
S suppose, that the impressions
made in high school persuaded the
college students to opt for college in
the first place.
Two weeks ago, five justices
Ruled against a case requesting just
such a privilege. The point is the
five ruled against allowing stu-
dents to meet voluntarily on school
premises for prayer and Bible
study because their case was
presented wrong and not because
of the subject matter.
Four of the justices have
strongly supported permitting stu-
dent prayer meetings in high
schools.
The swing vote has been

With it the beginning of a new
summer season of televised base-

To baseball fans, the live

moms, who want to watch some-

ning of baseball marks a summer
of bearing up under the onslaught
of yet another sport to take up soap
opera time on the tube.
Frankly, we're tired of the A

voluntary student prayer meetings
in universities and similar extra-
curricular sessions in high schools.
In the case before the Supreme
Court last week, Justice Warren
Burger seemed to express the high
courts constitutional stance in the
matter by saying, It is "wholly
consistent with the Constitution"
for a student prayer group to get
the same access to school facilities
that other student organizations
enjoy to "discuss moral philosophy
or Marxism, to practice French, or
to play chess".
After all these years of reason-
able men making such reasonable
sounding pronouncements, it is
high time the Supreme Court
Justices, who are supposed to be
the epitome of reasonableness in
our nation, should arrive at a
rational view of our constitutional
rights.
An attorney for Americans
United for Separation of Church
and State agrees there's a good
likelihood that the votes are there
for high court approval of student
prayer meetings being allowed in
public school buildings, so long as
the prayer meetings are student-
initiated and student-run..
Prayer meetings which are
regimented and not spontaneous
are not prayer meetings at all, but
merely rote repeating of good
sounding words. So maybe the
Supreme Court has been doing us a
favor in the past by refusing to
allow required prayer meetings or
Bible study.



Ball!
Great -world of baseball.
At our house, the wife sits right
down, too, when Dale Murphy and
company hear the call of "Play
Ball", and is just as interested in
when Bob Horner.is going to make
his next touchdown as is the next
guy or gal.
Of course, Bob Horner and his
manager hope he doesn't make any
touchdowns this year. He has done
enough of that in past years,
breaking a wrist, twice, twisting an
ankle, jamming a thumb, cracking
a rib and shaving too close.
We hope the new baseball
season is an interesting season to
watch. We would hate to spend the
entire summer exasperated be-
cause our southern team can't win
enough games to be respectable.
It was a thrill Tuesday to see
the first game of the season.


Hunker Down with My Dad

by Josh Colbert



The Big Trip

0 8PP


Our trip started off with a
bang. We were going to leave
right after school at 2:30.
Dad was home and I was
home. Mom and Jesse
weren't. We finally got going
at 3:25. I think Dad was a lit-
tle upset. He didn't say a
word till we stopped for gas


in Birmingham. We got to
my grandmother's house in
Tennessee at 2:37 in the
morning. Mima was waiting
up for us.
Dad gave Jesse and me
this big talk about taking
care of Mima's house. He
told us not to drag every-


thing out of the attic and not
to eat in the living room and
don't run in the house and
don't fight with each other.
In other words, he was say-
ing "Don't have any fun."
But Mima is cooler than
Dad. The first thing the next
morning she took us up to the


attic and we played up there
all day, except, of course,
when Mima would bring us'
lunch and snacks and things
to eat in front of the T.V. in
the living room. I told Dad
that Mima said it was O.K. I
also told Dad that Mima said
it was O.K. to run in her


house. Aren't grandmothers
the greatest? And I found out
that Mima is still the boss of
my Daddy. As for that no
fighting part I only had to
beat Jesse up a couple of
times while we were there.
We had to go on this big
trip because my Uncle Buba
was getting married. Uncle
Buba is some kin to my
mother. Everybody had a
good time at the wedding,
especially my Dad. He must
really like weddings. Just as
soon as we sat,.down in the
front of the church he said,
"I drove 600 miles for this -
let's get the show rolling."
My two uncles that are kin
to Daddy also came to
Mima's while we were there.
I had lots of cousins to play
with. The first day we mostly
tore the attic up. At dinner
that night all I heard was
golf by my two uncles and
my Dad. The next day we
played in the attic and the
garage. Mima's house is .
kind'a old but it is neat. At
dinner my two uncles and
my Dad were still talking
golf. After dinner Tammy,
Jesse, Matthew, Jeffrey and
I made Easter eggs while the
parents watched T.V. The
next morning we had a
Easter egg hunt before Sun-
day School. We had fun at
church, then we came home
and made pictures. About
4:30 my two uncle's families
left. At dinner I didn't have
to listen about golf. I asked
my Dad who won the golf
match between he and Uncle
David and Uncle Leon. He
said to be quiet and eat my
collard greens.
The next day I was work-
ing in my grandmother's
garden. I was raking dead
grass when I hit a rabbit's
nest. Three baby rabbits
came out and'I caught one.
Mima helped me build a
home for the rabbit in the
garage. We got some carrots
and grass and water and laid
it in front of the rabbit.
Mima said I could keep it.
When Dad came home from
the golf course he said I
couldn't. We let the rabbit
go. Grandmothers are more
fun than Daddies.
One day Dad showed us all
the old places he used to
play. He even took us down
to the railroad tracks where
they used to lay pennies on
the track and let the train
flatten them. We stopped by
his old school. You should
have seen the desk. They
looked like the desk on "Lit-
tle House on the Prairie".
Dad explained to us what an
ink well was. We stood at at-
tention in front of the flag
pole just like the World War I
veterans did every No-
vember 11th when Dad was
going to school there. Dad
hummed the National An-
them.
We got ready to go home
and guess what? Mima
decided to come home with
us. Mima not only lets you do
anything you want to do -
she usually does it with you.

When It's
IT'S DEFINITELY GRASS cut-

planning periodic cuttings.

grass, you understand. For all I knew,
I was going to have the chore to do
myself, if I could get the mower
cranked up.
What made me apprehensive was
the week before, when Benny Roberts
cut off his whole big toe and the two
next to it, cutting his grass.
It didn't matter that Benny was
ruining it for the rest of us native,
home-bound grass cutters. It made no


baby teeth. He didn't mind losing the
tooth you understand, but it shook his
belief in his ability to sprout a
moustache before the end of the
school year, or the end of little league


msey


first time.
I have one grandson who is now 12
but convinced he is going on 21. He is
so convinced he is almost 21 that he is
trying to grow a moustache. He's
straining to grow the necessary facial
hair. He is refusing to wash under
his upper lip lest he damage any
downy growth which might sprout in
the vicinity of where a moustache is
supposed to be.
The other day, he lost one of his


season-whichever comes first.
I tried not to discourage his
efforts. I like to see a young man try!
BUT, BACK TO grass cutting.
Benny Roberts almost ruined it for
most of us house-husbands, but,
talking to him last Tuesday night, he
has come up with a gem of wisdom
which may show each and every
husband in our reading audience just
how much importance is placed on his


of(


being a part of his household.
Benny said he told Ann it was her
fault he lost three of his toes to the
lawn mower. He SAID he told Ann, "If
you had been running the lawn mower
that day, I wouldn't have cut my toes
off."
I can just see and hear Benny
telling that to Ann right now. Can't
you?
Benny said (again) that he
tripped while backing up with the
mower and in tripping, picked up the
rear of the mower by the handle as he
slipped and fell, setting the machine
down on his foot where it did its dirty
deed.
Benny again was real brave and
told Ann, "If you were running the
lawn mower as you should have been,
you wouldn't have been strong enough
to pick it up like that and nobody
would have lost toes."
I say the accident was more than
partially Benny's fault.
You know how he is: everything
has to be just perfect for Benny. If
that had been my lawnmower Benny
was using, it would have choked down
before it cut off his toes. The motor is


Grandsons
not well enough tuned to run under
such stress, nor is the blade sharp
enough to cut off three toes.
If Benny didn't keep his equip-
ment in such good shape, he would
lessen the prospects of that ever
happening again.
+++++
ANOTHER PLACE IN which
Benny didn't use good judgment is, if
he had gone at the matter in the right
manner, he wouldn't have been
behind the handle of the lawnmower
in the first place.
Ann would have just naturally
gravitated to the lawn mower handle.
without any urging or prodding on his
part. It's all in how you handle your
wife.
My old (actually and figuratively)
friend, George McLawhon never
places himself in such jeopardy.
George says, "The trick isn't to
make your wife cut the grass; it's in
persuading her to WANT to cut the
grass!'
Old George can do that if he wants
to. I just cut the grass because I need
the exercise. Frenchie is perfectly
willing to do it, you understand.

Hometown Care At Its Best!


SHAD

-- PHANTRY
by Wendell Campbell




Frog In the Yard

I HAVE THE ONLY lawnmower in the world that
doesn't break down.
What I really mean is, it doesn't break down when
it's my turn to do the mowing. It never runs, however,
when my son has to mow. It's either broke down or out
of gas.
IT WAS JUST yesterday the lawn needed mowing. I
was driving down our driveway when my youngest son
felled a weed on the car path and I hit it. The collision
caved in my right front fender. I knew it was time to
mow or I would have to do it with a chain saw.
I checked the gas can that is normally empty. Full
to the brim. I checked the oil. Full. I checked the gas in
the lawnmower. Clean and full. I had no excuse. I had to
mow.
AFTER I CHANGED clothes, I pulled the mower
out and pulled the cord. It started up just like a
ten-year-old Singer sewing machine. I didn't even have
to choke it. It has never started like that with my son.
That boy has the touch.
I started on the front yard and, after I had it
completed, went to the back. I was just about finished
when I saw something jump right in front of the mower.
At first I thought it was a ball someone had thrown
at me. I then realized that balls are usually white. Some
are green, yellow, blue, purple, but I had never seen a
dark brown ball. I stopped the mower and looked in the
grass. Suddenly it jumped again and I almost jumped
the dogpen fence. I then realized it was a brown frog.
OF ALL GOD'S creatures (not counting human
females). I like dogs best. Next to dogs, I like frogs.
Frogs are so harmless and helpless and, besides that, .
they don't cause warts, as some parents say. They also
eat pesty insects.
Shad tole me he and some friends once fed a frog
BB's until the frog couldn't jump. As a matter of fact,
he said the frog couldn't even budge. He said the frog
looked like a stuck four-wheel drive at a"bog-in. They
just kept rolling the BB's across the floor in frQpt of the
frog and he kept gobbling them down until Shad was out
of BB's and the frog was loaded.
I won't tell you how Shad retrieved his BB's. It
wasn't a pretty story.
Nevertheless, I removed this kindly creature from
the lawnmower path and continued mowing. When I
had finished, I happened to walk by thespot where'I had
placed the frog There:he was, sitting right where I had.
left him. He was looking up at me through those
glazed-over, protruding eyes, not saying a croak.
I reached down and petted him a while and I believe i
he actually smiled at me. He had a "take me home with
you" look on his face. I think I failed to mention that he
was a real big frog. .
I WONDER: SOMETINIES, how people can be cruel
to animals, especially the ones which are so
defenseless. I remember beating a horse almost to
death one day because he tried to kick me. I still feel
guilty about that sometimes. And, I often think about-
old Prince andwonder if he still remembers that day. I
W ill apologize to him if I ever see him again.
I think I'll start a movement to set aside a week in
the year for "Be kind to animals." This week would be
devoted to all animals and we could feed dogs and cats
nothing but steaks and pork chops. And, any time we
saw a coon or possum dead in the road, we could give
them a name and have a funeral for them. It would be a
Small but meaningful gesture. What do you think?
I'LL TELL YOU one thing, though. People have-
been telling me for years and years about how
wonderful and delicious they are, but, let me tell you,
frog legs ain't that darn good!

SStudents of Excellence Banquet
Grant Campaigns Here Slated at Wewahitchka High School


for Congressional Seat


State Senator Bill Grant, of Madison,
brought his camDaign to Gulf County
Thursday of last week. Grant is attempting
to capture the U.S. Congressional seat being


SENATOR BILL GRANT


vacated this year by veteran Don Fuqua.
Fuqua says he is quitting after 25 years in
the House.
Grant, a banker in Madison is very
active in the State Senate and holds high
office in several committees. Speaking
before a group of businessmen and local
Political leaders Thursday, the candidate
said he already has a base organization to
operate his campaign from, since he
already .serves a little over half the
Congressional district as state senator.
"That doesn't mean they all will vote for
me, but at least I'm well known in my
Senate district. My aim now, is to become,
well known in the remainder of the
Congressional district".
Grant has worked on agricultural
related committees in the state Senate and
claims a philosophy that the nation should
pay its way for its services, rather than run
up huge deficits "for our children to pay".
Grant was re-elected to another four
years during the past general election and
says he will meet his Senate obligation this
year before resigning from that post to seek
election to Congress on a full-time basis.
At present, only Grant and Jackson
County Commissioner Ernie Padgett have
announced as candidates for Congress.
Padgett is also a past chairman for the
Apalachee Regional Planning Commission.


Wewahitchka High School
is planning for its first an-
nual banquet in honor of

This most important event,
which is a vital part of the

tainment, is scheduled for

standing accomplishments

certificates and other appro-
priate awards will be pre-


sented. Dr. Sandra
Etheridge, of Gulf Coast
Community College, will be
the guest speaker.

Eye Openers

MORE THAN ONE
PAIR OF
CONTACT LENSES
It makes sense to have
more than one pair of con-
tact lenses, especially if
you wear them most of the
time. Many contact lens
patients realize that lenses
can be lost, misplaced or
torn. And, for cosmetic
reasons, you might want a.
second pair in blue, green
or amber to give your eyes
a special kind of glow.
If you have more than
one pair of lenses, you
should be aware of special
precautions in taking care
of them. Always clean and
disinfect the lenses you
wear immediately upon
removal. Lenses should
not be worn unless the
disinfection procedure has
been performed within the
preceding 24 hours. Keep
this precaution in mind if
you only wear your con-
tact lenses for certain
occasions.
Cleaning and disinfec-
tion are absolute musts for
all contact lens wearers.
These procedures prevent
growth of harmful
bacteria and protein
deposits on soft lenses
both while in the eye or in
the lens carrying case.
They are safety measures
to protect the health of
,your eyes.

DEAR HOMEOWNER,
Construction is not "booming", it's what we call in the industry
"active". Interest rates are dropping (slightly) but BEFORE YOU BUY,
BEFORE YOU BUILD consider this. Wasted material and wasted
space not only cost the original sum but also the compounded in-
terest, besides improperly designed space will not do much for your
ever-rising energy costs. Whether you're planning for an addition or
new construction consider this.

INCLUDE MEDICINE CABINET
r IN YOUR SPRING CLEANING


When as the robin red breast reminds you spring has
finally arrived and the good news stirs you into an
energetic round of spring cleaning don't forget the
medicine cabinet. It's unwise to keep prescription drugs
"on hand" after the specific condition for which they were
ordered has been cured. You should not take potent
medicines without your doctor's advice, self-diagnosis
can do more harm than good.
The less crowded your drug storage area is the less
chance for a mistake when reading for a bottle. If you like
you can bring us any drugs you wish to discard and we'll
be glad to dispose of them safely.

from its new distributor,
G.A. Foods of St. Petersburg.
This firm will furnish meals
eaten by over 200 people
daily. These meals are going
to be less expensive, with a
higher grade of meat and
fresh instead of frozen vege-
tables. On this special day,
the Seniors Center was hon-
ored to have Mayor Frank

for lunch. They truly enjoyed
the meal and had beautiful
and encouraging comments
to give about both the meal
and the recent improvements
to the Center itself. Victor

the new meals that he sprang
out of his..seat and sang
"Happy Da)s Are Here
Again", and all of the Seniors
and guests joined'him in his
vocal appreciation.
