Burial

Crypts

The City Commission
started serious consid -ration
this week of dealing with a
firm to construct a maso-
leum burial facility here in
the City, utilizing a portion of
the Holly Hill Cemetery site
' for the construction.
City Clerk Alden Farris,
who released the information
Tuesday, said the proposed
masoleum would not take the
place of a perpetual care
cemetery near Holly Hill,
which has been under con-
struction for some time, but
which suffered severe dam-
age during the hurricanes of
last fall. Farris said, "This
project is still being pursued
and will be completed. The
proposed masoleum is a' hird
option for burial facilities in
the city".
The masoleum concept,
was first proposed nearly two
years ago, when a firm
approached the Commission
with the suggestion for such a
facility. The firm was asked
to give the Commission defin-
ite prices at the time, but
never produced.
Farris said the City now
has a proposal for building a

is enough public interest in-
such a facility,

would take only two weeks to
take the dam out. "If that's
so, we still have plenty of

School Board and County
Commission officials came a
little closer to agreement on
new ,commission districts in
the county, to comply with a
suit requiring the county to
adopt single member voting
this past week.
With both the School Board
and County Commission cit-
ed in separate suits calling
for the new voting concept to
be adopted in the county,
both governmental bodies
had come up with different
versions of where the five
county districts should be, as
their solution to the require-
ment that thpy either adopt
the new voting system or go
to court.

ed the district, the residents of a
district vote for their School
St. Joe Board member and County
tion of Commissioner running from
their district only. In the
present system, all members
from all five districts are

county. The representative in
county government must live
in the district, run for
election only in his district
:., .i-:..;..-rand be votad-on by.-apeople of -
his district only.
SThere were several areas
;e 3) of disagreement between the
two boards as to where the
new districts should be divid-
ed. Florida law calls for the
voting districts to be as
nearly equal as possible in
Population numbers. One of
the complications of the suit
is that the instigator, Nathan
Peters, r., of Port St. Joe,
has said present District
Four must remain as it is
presently outlined. Current-
ly, District Four extends
from the Gulf County Canal
to 10th Street in Port St. Joe
and from the Bay to a section
line just south of White City
and west to the Franklin-Gulf
county, line.
The district is mostly un-


populated except for that
portion which lies within the
City of Port St. Joe.-
School Superintendent
Walter Wilder said this week
the School Board and the
County Commission have
both been in work sessions
and have communicated with
one another and, "We're not
that far apart" in agreeing
on a like division of the
districts. Wilder said the
School Board was advised by
attorneys their deadline was
impninent so they had to
move whether or not the
county was ready to consider
their options.
"We adopted a plan to
meet our deadline, but that
doesn't mean it can't be
changed to one which both
boards can agree on. Our
plan isn't chiseled in stone",
Wilder said Tuesday.
County Commission chair-


man Billy-Branch said, "Our.
communications have been
productive. We aren't that
far apart in our thinking. We
just needed to, meet together
and hash this thing out".
Representatives of the
School Board and: County
Commission met together
last week and nearly agreed
on a common set of district
boundaries at the meeting.
"We'll be holding our public
hearing Monday of next week
and other meetings with the
School Board between now
and then and I can see where
we 'could possibly come up
with an agreement prior to
Monday night", Branch said.
Wilder verified that "We
have found areas in which we
could agree to in order to
come up with districts which
will be congruent with one

Public Hearing

On District Plan

The Gull County Commission will conduct a public
hearing meeting Monday evening to discuss their plans
for complying with the new single member election
district proposal, according to Chairman Billy Branch..
Chairman Branch pointed out the public hearings
are being held to inform those interested in what the
county plans to do and to receive any public input to
their proposal.
Boundary lines of all present commission member
districts in the county have been altered to some ex-
tent, with District Four being the only exception.
However, the County is considering some changes to
District Four, possibly moving the southern boundary
from 10th Street to either Eighth Street or Fifth Street.
This matter will probably be discussed at Monday's
hearing.
The hearing will be held in the County Commission
meeting room, downstairs in the Courthouse and will
begin at 7:00 p.m.
Chairman Branch said everyone is invited to at-
tend and to participate.

In addition to the free entertainment,
there will be approximately 20 booths
featuring arts and crafts. Seafood
dinners will also be sold on the grounds.
According to Jerry Stokoe, director
of the Senior Citizens Association, there
will be such activities as a dunking booth,
a pie eating contest and cake walks, as
well as clowns, free balloons and a
make-up booth.
During the course of the day, several
prizes will be given away, valued from
$15 to $100.
Stokoe emphasizes that the day of fun
and festival is to raise funds for the Gulf
County Senior Citizens Association,
which must raise a considerable portion
of its annual operating budget from local
sources.

City Has Larger Computer

System Installed This Week


The City of Port St. Joe had a new NCR
Model 9300 computer system installed in the
City Hall office this week.
The new computer replaces an older
and smaller model which was put into use in
1980 and has since become too small to
handle the City's business.
City Clerk, Alden Farris said the new
machine will more than double the former
computer capacity and should serve the
City's needs for several years into the
future. "The new unit will also cut out some


work duplication", Farris said.
The new unit consists of the main,
station for memory storage, a printer and
one slave.
Farris said the new computer was
approved by the Commission in January of
this year and is not increasing the City's
investment in computer service. "The new
machine is costing the same as the
maintenance contract on the old machine",
Farris said.

It's spring here in the Panhan-
Adle and the thoughts of our people
..naturally turn to the seashore and
the recreational possibilities it
..ffers. There's fishing, beach
..combing, swimming, surfing, etc.
There's also the annual complaint
by the people who live on the
waterfront about the invasion of
the privacy of their property by
A-those driving and operating motor-
ized vehicles such as four-wheel
.' drive cars; pick-ups and off-road
', vehicles. The vehicles offer fun and
p, pleasure for their owners and a
.source of complaint for those who
live within a stone's throw of the
water's edge.
: We can understand their com-
plaint, but we cannot agree with
;the amount of official attention
S".:they feel they are due.
S- A group which signed them-
-,:-selves, "Concerned Citizens", peti-
tioned the County Commission last
S week, calling for rigid enforcement
o" ;of ordinances forbidding the type
activities on the beaches the
property owners, claim disturbs
--their privacy and invades their
-... property.
The letter mentioned above,
called for adequate law enforce-
:: ment in the area to stop dangerous
Driving practices on the beaches,
-~,intrusiop. onto privately owned
"'portions of the beach by vehicles
and generally asking that people
who do not own property in the area
be kept off the premises.

S Stories in the newspapers the
S: other day advised all of.us here in
Florida that our state had become
Sthe most densely populated in the
Sunbelt and was fast becoming
more and more crowded. If we
listen to our eivironmentalists we
hear they are panicked by that
S-.-news .
Of course, the places where
SFlorida is most populated-down in
the southern portion-are still:
there and still growing.
-- So, we up in the less populated
-sections get the benefits of all the
i, -.protective bent of our state envir-
S onmentalists, whether or not we
__ think we need it.

tient


This is asking for too much, we
think. Reasonable controls should
be furnished to enforce ordinances
on the books, but as we interpret
the letter, these "Concerned Citi-
zens" are calling for preferential
treatment in their area.
The other day, a resident of a
nice home with a beautiful yard
told us of someone turning around
in front of their home and, in the
process, coming over onto their
property and cutting up a portion of
a well-maintained yard. Had pro-
tection been provided in the
vicinity of this home to the extent
the beach residents seem to be
calling for it, the yard might never
have been damaged or the perpe-
trator might have been caught. The
person whose yard was damaged
has been a resident of Gulf County
and paid taxes here for at least 50
years.
We can commiserate with the
people at the beaches, but they
must realize those waterfront
areas have been used by our people
for years and years with impunity.
In effect, the people who live here
feel they have at least squatter's
rights on the beach. They feel they
can use them at will and it will take
a cop every few feet, 24 hours a
day, or a few more years of
education to change this thinking.
We can't provide the manpower to
do their wishes, nor can we rush the
re-thinking process. The people
who live there will just have to be
patient.


Crowded

disturbing too many people, we are
packed in at a density of some 20
people per square mile.
We think we are getting
crowded here in Gulf county, but
we are a far, far distance from the
population density of 2,857 being
experienced in Pinellas county.
The least populated county of
the state is Liberty, where only five
people live per square mile in the
county. That's one-fourth the den-
sity of Gulf County. Then there's
Leon county with 249 people per
square mile, or ten times the
density of Gulf.
If that means we still have
something to look forward to in the
way of population, we would hope
that by the time we grow to a
density of about 50 per mile, at the
most, people will begin to "disco-
ver" some other place to live in
these United States-like Alaska,
where the density is one per square
mile.
If we continue making people,
and God continues to let us do with
the same land, something will have
to give, that's for ,sure.

!realize you need seniority before you
get these choice assignments. He has
to know something bout the nature of
the assignment before I could even
dream of sending him to Brazil. He
even thinks bananas grow on Chiquita
trees, when everyone knows a Brazil-
ian banana grows on a Dole tree.
.I sort of wish he hadn't referred to
that "dog eat dog" phrase in his
column last week. We were in Brazil
a week and we didn't see more than a
half dozen dogs which weren't on


dogs and cats, it mpde me wonder if
we weren't the one eating the dog or
maybe the cat, disguised in Brazilian
gravy as beef or ham.
Kes told you we were canoeing up
the Amazon River and we were 1,000
miles or so from the Amazon River.
You see, how could I ever send
Kes off on an assignment like that if
he didn't know Rio was 1,000 miles
from the Amazon River?
I have to give him a gold star and


SIt was an adventure, at times,
ordering what you wanted and getting
what you ordered.
Once, I ordered a dish of ice
cream and couldn't make the waitress
understand what I wanted. I tried and
tried and we just couldn't communi-
cate. Finally, I took her by the arm
and led her to a wall with some
pictures on it and pointed to a bowl of
ice cream and fruit.
When I got my ice cream and


fruit, it was a compote full of ice
cream, fruit, whipped cream, sauces,
etc. It was enough for four people and
I had just ordered it for an after
dinner dessert.
+++++
.BACK TO THE FIRST para-
graph. One never needs to ride a roller
coaster again for thrills, if he just goes
to Rio and crawls in one of the VW bug
taxis or aboard one of the thousands of
buses which are everywhere in the
city. I believe at least two-thirds of the
VW bugs left in the world are now in
Rio.
Anyhow, the Taxis zoom at speeds
up to 60 miles per hour in traffic as
thick as Atlanta traffic at the rush
hour. There are no lanes marked off
on the road. They just go where there
is room enough to go.
A red light in Rio is nothing but a
Christmas decoration. The little'cars
zip up to the intersection, beep their
horns twice and keep right on going.
Everything a driver does there
requires a strong horn which is
always beeped twice. It can mean,
"I'm backing up", "I'm coming
around you", "Move over" or "stay


where you are" or "I'm first in this
intersection". I guess it means a
variety of other things, too, but I had
my eyes shut most of the time.
The buses we used for transporta-
tion over the narrow mountain roads
ran at top speed up and down and
around the mountains on hairpin
curves with their lights off!
We were told the lights might be a
discomfort for oncoming drivers-
which could be another big bus
coming up that narrow road-so the
lights were turned off in courtesy. It's
a thrill to be barrelling up or down one
of those narrow roads in the dark,.
with a 1,000 foot drop just inches
away.
+++++
WE HAD A GOOD time on our
assignment in Rio and came home
tired.
The reason I didn't send Kes is
that if he had seen the thousands of
girls on Impenema or Copabana
beaches in the tiny bathing suits they
all wore, he would have sinned in his
heart and we can't have that with our
staff members.

Editor:

Parents Have
Responsibility
Dear Mr. Ramsey:
This is onceagain the time
of year when the ball parks
:on Tenth St. are filled with
supportive fans and eager
young players. Each after-
noon a group of kids and
parents gather to either
participate or watch as chil-
dren spend some time in an
activity which they enjoy and
which also offers some valu-
able lessons about life and
maturity.
Thursday, April 24, was an
afternoon and evening which
left many players with some
very negative lessons as they
followed the lead of some
adults in the crowd. As the
ballgame began to get close
some adults began making
slanderous remarks to the
young boys on the field, "nd
this behavior was infectious.
Before long other spectators
as well as some of the players

PHANTRY

Blue Monday

I don't believe the Lord had anything to do with
putting Monday in the days of the week. Let's face it,
Monday are real bummers!
There's not one person I know that likes Mondays.
rm sure there are some preachers that like Mondays
because, to them, Mondays are really Saturdays.
While everyone else is going to work, preachers are
probably going fishing or lounging around the house,
laughing at all of us on our way to work.
If I had been in on the creation of the calendar, I
would have named Monday something else, like Half-
day or Yourday. Let's just say I suggested, and it was
accepted, that we call Monday Yourday and go from
there.
Yourday would be similar &o Saturday. On Your-
day, you wouldn't have to go to work if you didn't want
to. If you had something that just couldn't wait, you
could go to work about noon or a little thereafter. You
see, it would be Yourday, to do with what you wish.
This day would give you time to "wind-up" for the
week.
Why not? Doesn't everyone "wind-down" on Fri-.
day? Around here-at least on one radio station-they
call Friday "break-a-way" day. Everyone knows that
hardly anyone does anything on Friday afternoon.
Sure, some of us have to work late on Fridays, but, let's
be honest, our hearts are not really in it.
The fact is there are many companies going to
four-day work weeks. They have found, I'm told, that
employees function better working.,four days with
longer hours. It's a fact that they are more productive.
That, in itself, is reason enough to change Monday to
Yourday.
I'm not certain but I think someone thought about
this before. I understand there is a church that holds
Sunday church on Saturday and have Sundays to do
what they want. That's a good idea, in my opinion, and
I think I'll look into that church and see what else they
have to offer.
Some of you, I know, think this is absurd. It's not
too bad an idea if you think about it. How about our
government trying to change weights and measures
from the English to metric system. Talk about waste!
and for what reason? As far as I'm concerned, a pound
is twelve ounces and a yard is three feet-six inches, and
that's the way it should stay.
Look at the time. Isn't it true they change it twice
each year? Yes, they do, and it keeps Shad so fouled up
that he doesn't know what to do. It's complicated,
changing the time and date on his solar-powered, self-
winding, alarm with radio, wrist watch.
Considering all this, don't you think Yourday is a
good idea? I'll bet you do. Just think, it would give us
enough time to read all the Sunday paper. It would also
give us additional time to think of ways to get even with
Libya and their heathen leader, Moammar, Khadafy.
We could probably come up with something that would
be fitting as a partial penalty for some of the awful
things he's done, although I can't imagine what it
would be.
S:.i At this very moment I-am writing this article on
' Molnd-ay nlght.It's very difficult. If it were Yourday, it
would be no problem.
Have a good week and I'll see you next YOUR-
DAY!

A 'kitchen table. Like the rash,.
Young, stupid boy that I
could be at times I said,
"You don't expect me'to eat
That mess, do you?"
SBeing rash and young I
had said the wrong thing.
The stupid part came in
because I had said it in front
of my father. He whipped me
for a while. When he finally
finished he said, "Son, you
don't have to eat anything
your Mother fixes, but
you're not going to throw off
on it."
We ate our cauliflower in
silence that night and I'll
never forget the hurt look on
my Mother's face. You'd


a'thought it was her fault. I
apologized after supper and
told her I deserved exactly
what I got. She just hugged
me. And to this day she's
never fixed cauliflower
again.
If the shirt I wanted to
wear wasn't ready -'she
somehow got it ready. I love
cashews but we can't afford

Mother she's got a can of
cashews awaiting for me.
She still has my little league
uniform hanging in the up-
stairs closet. And when she
comes to visit she's still tak-
ing good care of me. When I
worked in the yard she'd
bring me tea about every 10
minutes. Before I could get
stretched out on the couch
after supper she'd want to
know if she could fix me a
snack. She figures she's still

shown digging the footers, getting ready to pour the founda-

when the weather is inclement students have been forced to
stay inside the classrooms all day. In order to alleviate this

All of the members of both

Both Wilder and Branch

was that both boards were

Supporters of having the

those who would have it

in the courts and feel the
matter is only a stalling
tactic. "They haven't done
anything on the time-table

that failure of the property
owners to meet deadlines
gives the district permission

groups.
It is an opportunity you

plans now to attend. Price of
admission will be $2.00 for


adults, $1.00 for students, and
pre-schoolers will be admit-
ted free. A concession stand

St. Joe High School cheer-
leaders.


When warm weather
comes around we all get the
urge to get out and move
about after being cooped up
all winter. The same is true
for all of our creeping,
Scrawling and flying friends.
This week we will focus on
bees, wasps and hornets.
These are a sophisticated
group of insects because of
their social grouping habits
and their venom- chemical
make up. The combination of
theirsocial habits and venom
make up makes these insects
more dangerous than any
other group of insects due to
their ability to swarm if
threatened. If you come in
contact with one or more
bees, wasps or hornets you
should remove yourself from
the area in a slow calm
manner. Most people, when-
confronted by these insects,
start running and slapping at
them therefore provoking an
attack. The sting of one of
'these insects is most painful
but it is also :a signal from
that insect that it is in danger
Sand has attacked. The signal
is accomplished by injecting
i an enzyme along with the
? venom that leaves a scent for
Other bees, wasps and horn-
; ets, to home in on for the
-swarm, attak. In the wild
f these insects are notorious
* for .nesting in very large
g numbers, and we ali know -
5 that when we make contact
With these insects we only see
just a few but the rest are
I:there and in force.
SThe sting of only a few is no
1 more than extremely painful



Al


but when swarming reports
have shown death to occur
from only a single sting. In
order to keep death at bay
from multiple stings and.
severe allergic reactions re-
cognition of'symptoms and
rapid treatment is a must.
The .symptoms are easy to
recognize and are as follows,
extreme pain, swelling of the

very simple, maintain an
open airway, let the patient
get in a comfortable position,
keep warm, if it is a bee sting
remove the stinger, if ice is
available apply ice packs to
help reduce swelling and
pain, call for emergency
medical help. For those of

cation. Remember, you can

Receives Award

Miss Tina Littleton, a fifth grade student at Highland
View Elementary, was Gulf County's selection to receive a
1986 Dreamers and Doers Award given by Walt Disney
World. This year was the.first year the award has been of-
fered, and one child from each of Florida's 67 counties has
been invited to be honored at a special ceremony on Friday,
May 2 at the America Gardens Stage in EPCOT Center in
Orlando.
The Walt Disney World Dreamers and Doers program is
based on the following quote by Walt Disney: "Somehow I
can't believe there are any heights that can't be scaled by a
man who knows the secret o making dreams come true. This
special criteria, it seemsto me, can be summarized in four
C's. They are Curiosity, Confidence, Courage and Constancy
... and the greatest of these is Confidence. When you believe
a thing, believe it all the way, implicitly and
unquestionably!"
Tina was selected as the student in the county which best
exemplified these qualities of curiosity, confidence, courage
and constancy, and also selection was based on test scores,
achievement, and class status academically.

Most Popular Lawn


Grass In North Florida


BY ROY LEE CARTER
County Extension Director
In a recent article I talked
about selecting a lawngrass,
focused on the advantages
and disadvantages of the
varieties most commonly
grown in Florida. Today I
will talk about a low-main-
tenance grass which grows
well in full sun or light shade<
and thrives on lightly ferti-
lized, acid soils. My subject
is the most popular lawn-
grass in north and west
Florida- Centipede.
Centipede grass produces a
medium textured lawn with
good shade tolerance and
very few maintenance prob.
lems. The biggest drawback
with centipede grass is its

on the bench joined in the
jeering and condemnation of
these children playing ball.
When these adults were
:asked to please cheer for
their team rather than say-
ing ~,ly thimgs,about others,
',he'Z tcomients were gene
rally that they wouldn't stop
and that they could say
anything which they pleased.


Well, I will support to the
death their RIGHT to say
what they please, but most of
us teach our kids that with
rights come responsibilities;
so,. while I support their
right, I also realize thatthey
should "recognize their re-
sponisibilities. They have the
responsibility of influencing
children in a positive manner
and of teaching children that
jeering, biting remarks to.
others is not acceptable
behavior. To ignore this
responsibility while spouting
their rights would fnake
anyone wonder what our kids
will be subjected to before
the season ends.
Little league has so many
positive effects on kids, but
when they dread a game or a
situation because of the
abusive language which they
are subjected to from the
adults who have gathered to
watch, then what have we as
adults accomplished as we
try to raise our kids to be
respectable people.

poor salt tolerance. So we
don't recommend it for beach
areas. My information on
starting and caring for a
centipede lawn was provided
by Extension Urban Horti-
culture specialist Dr. Robert
Black, of the University of
Florida's Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences.
Several types of centipede
grass are grown in the United
States. But, here in Florida,
we use only the common
variety. You can start a
centipede lawn with sod,
sprigs, or seeds. Seeding is
the most common method.
It's best to plant centipede'
seed between April and Sep-
tember.: Planting just before
the rainy season is ideal,
because you must keep the
soil continuously moist until
the seedlings are well estab-
lished.
If you've never bought
centipede seed before, you're
in for a mild shock when you
get to your garden center. At
first glance, the seed price
seems outrageous, but, seed-
ing is still cheaper than
sodding or sprigging. That's
because a little seed goes a
long way. In fact, four ounces
of centipede seed is enough
for a one-thousand square
foot area. That's good news
in terms of seed cost. But, it
can be bad news when it
comes to spreading the seed
over the lawnsite. You'd

C


have a hard time spreading
such a small amount of seed
evenly over such. a large
area. So, mix the seed with
some kind of carrier, such as
sand, to make it easier to
distribute.
Once you get the seed in the
ground, one of the- most
important factors in estab-
lishing your centipede lawn
is proper fertilization. Unlike
many plants, centipede grass
needs very little fertilizer. In
fact, the more fertilizer you
apply, the more serious the
pest problem becomes. One
or two applications per year
should be sufficient.
One of the common prob-
lems with centipede grass is
chlorosis, or yellowing,
caused by iron deficiency. As
I said earlier, centipede likes
acid soil. If the: soil is too
sweet (too alkaline) the
grass can't get the iron it
needs.

Insured rice planted by
May 31 must be reported by
June 10 in order to receive
full crop insurance coverage.
The acreage report reflects
the actual acreage planted
and reported by the farmer.
"During the growing sea-
son, if damage occurs, notice
should be given promptly,"
Lawrence said.
A new crop insurance plan,
called actual production his-
tory (APH), is available this
year to producers of sdy-
beans, and rye in addition to corn,
grain sorghum, peanuts, cot-
ton, rice and other crops.

USING MULTIFOCAL
LENSES
Many people now
choose a multifocal lens
rather than the traditional
or no-line bifocal. What is
the difference? While a bi-
focal gives clear vision at
two distances (far and
near), the multifocal lens
allows you to see clearly at
a "third" or INTER-
MEDIATE range of 18 to
36 inches as well.
The importance of clear
vision for the intermediate
distance cannot be under-
estimated, for musicians,
engineers, typists, com-
puter operators, painters,
architects and .many
others. In the multifocal
lens, a gradual change in
magnification from the
top of the lens to the bot-
tom,, and' from side to'.
side, is ground right into
the lens. There is no line
'that interferes with the
natural progression of vi-
sion.
Multifocal lenses are
available in glass as well as
plastic. The lenses can be
clear, tinted, or photo-
chromatic which
changes density according
to the amount of light.
Next time you have
your eyes examined, dis-
cuss .the possibility of
multi-focal lenses with
your optometrist.

S proudly carry. And we see. thoughtful Mothers w
S.deciding on many important drug items.
Because we are so closely involved with serving

thank you to the Mothers who have.chosen us to help
them.

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.
