Gates, Branch War




Heats Up Again


Somebody Dug Up


the Buried Hatchet
"I thought we had buried the hatchet, but it seems as if
somebody has dug it up", County Commission chairman
Billy Branch remarked Tuesday night, when Building
Inspector Dewayne Manuel complained that his building
department fund had been cleaned out to the point where it
was having checks to bounce.
It was learned the reason for the depleted fund was
that Clerk of the Court Jerry Gates had allegedly ordered
some ;$40,000 be removed and added with other county
funds to purchase certificates of deposit. Benny Lister, an
aide to Gates, said the money had been pooled with other
county, funds to allow the purchase of CD's in large
denominations to take advantage of higher interest rates to
earn the county more money.
The county normally deposits excess funds to earn
interest during the year, with Gates doing the managing of'
the funds.
Manuel told the Board Tuesday his account should
have some $40,000 on deposit, but an examination after two
checks bounced found only slightly jnore than $1,400 in the
account. "My department is run separately from the other
county funds. It is strictly a user financed operation, with
fees paying all the bills of the department", Manuel
pointed out. For that reason, he said the funds had been
deposited in an account separate from the regular county
funds.
COUNTERMANDS LETTER
Branch, who has had a running battle with Gates all
year long about who is in charge of the county, funds, the
chairman or the Clerk; then asked attorney Tom
Gibson-sitting in for William J. Rish, what the county
could do about Gates still assuming power over county
funds. Branch noted Circuit Court Judge Russell Bower
had ruled earlier in the fiscal year that the Commission
had control over the funds and that Gates was to dispense
them at the direction of the board, even if the expenditure
was illegal: Gates had balked at the idea when asked to
.ms .. onsey be questioned. ps to the legality
of the' expenditure. .. "
Branch said, "apparently it did no good for a judge to
tell him that". He then asked the Board, "What do you
intend to do about this?"
CCommissioner Doug Birmingham asked, "What can
we do?'"' :He suggested "the chairman write a letter to
the clerk, telling him to discontinue his present practices
and sticc' to carrying out the wishes of the Board".
Afte` considerable discussion on the matter, the
Commission then agreed the attorney should write the
current circuit judge, W. E. Bailey and ask him to direct
Gates to abide by the earlier decision of the court.
INTERNAL LETTERS
Chai man Branch then brought out copies of two
letters which placed he and the Clerk in direct conflict with
one anot er in preparation of the budget for the new fiscal
year. The first draft of the new budget is scheduled to be
presented to the Commission by Gates in mid-July to begin
the budget work.
Branch said he had sent out a memo to all county
officers, 'saying: "Due to circumstances beyond our
control, we will not be able to fund any increases in

The change in ownership of

beginning with its founder, R. A.
Costin. According to Cecil G. Costin,
Sr., present head of the Costin
family, the store was established in
an old wooden building in 1910 on the
spot presently occupied by the Post
Office. "We moved here in 1910

BARBARA GREADINGTON

Runs for

Congress
Barbara Greadington, an
educator and criminal jus-
tice professional, recently
announced her candidacy to
succeed outgoing U.S. Rep.
Don Fuqua, D-2nd District.
Surrounded by supporters
at a news conference in
Tallahassee, Greadington
said her priorities in repre-
senting the district will in-
clude economic growth, edu-
cation, the environment, per-
sonalized service to consti-
tuents, and fighting crime
and illegal drug traffic.
-"I believe an effective-
leader works hard, sees
problems as opportunities,
and has a love of community
and country," Greadington
said. "I run to build on the
renewed optimism, pride and
patriotism so many people
feel today."
Greadington, 46, was ap-
pointed by Gov. Bob Graham
to the Florida Parole and
Probation Commission,
which she chaired from 1980
to 1982. Treasurer for her
campaign is former Florida
Supreme Court Chief Justice
Alan Sundberg.
Prior to her state govern-
ment service, Greadington
was an educator and counse-
lor. She holds four degrees,
including a Ph.D. from the
University of Miami.


NATHAN PETERS, JR.

First County

Candidate
Nathan Peters, Jr., be-
came Gulf County's first
officially announced candid
date of the 1986 campaign,
when he appointed himself
campaign treasurer and de-
clared to Supervisor of Elec-
tions, Cora Sue Robinson that
he would be a candidate for
the office of County Commis-
sioner, Group Four.
Peters' announcement was
not unexpected since he
formally tendered his resig-
nation to the Port St. Joe City
Commission last week, say-
ing le waS goni-g to eco fne a
candidate for the county
position.
Peters, who assumed the
City Commission seat in June
of 1985, has not yet served a
full term on the board. He
made his resignation effec-
tive November 5 of this year,
the date of the general
election in Florida.
Peters became the first
Black man to be a candidate
for county commissioner in
Gulf county. He has been an.
unsuccessful candidate for
the School Board in the past.
District Four will be the
predominately black district
under the new single mem-
ber district method'of select-.
ing commissioners in the..
future.


The State Department of
Transportation this week re-
leased their work plans for
the 1986-87 fiscal year, which,
' begins on July 1, for the Gulf
County area.
Several of the projects,
mentioned in the report are
currently under way, with
several construction projects
going on which are listed
on the report.
One such notable pr, 3s
a widening and improving of
the Ovorstreet Road, from its
S- junction with Highway 71 all
the way to Highway 98. The
Overstreet Road yill be
widened, resurfaced, cul-
verts replaced, and then
turned over to Gulf County
for upkeep and maintenance.
Currently, work is in pro-
gress in preparing the road
for .re-surfacing and replac-
ing culverts and bridges with
wider structures.
HIGHLAND VIEW BRIDGE
Three projects on the list of
things to do next year which
will draw the most interest
from Gulf county citizens
include the start of two new
high rise bridges and an
improvement ot a section of
highway leading into Port St.
Joe.
The report says right of
way for replacement of the
White City 'bridge with a
high-rise span, will be pur-
chased during the coming
fiscal year. The state will
purchase four-tenths of a
mile of right of way for the
project.
A second high rise bridge
construction project will get
underway in the current
fiscal year with the funding


of engineering work for a
new high level bridge at
Highland View, long a con-
troversial subject around
Port St. Joe.
The report goes further in
the subject and says right of
way for the Highland View
bridge will purchased in the
next fiscal budget which
begins in July 1987 and
construction will begin with
the following year's budget.
Construction on the White
City bridge is scheduled to
begin with next year's bud-
get.
A six and a half mile
stretch of Highway 71, north
of White City, stretching to
Cypress Creek is scheduled
to be re-surfaced in the 1989
budget, which begins in
July of 1988. In next year's
budget, funds are to be
allocated for engineering the
re-paving project.
RAILROAD CROSSINGS
Still more railroad cross-
ing work is scheduled for
Gulf County during the cur-
rent fiscal year. Crossing
improvements have been
scheduled for the crossings to
the east of Port St. Joe on
Highway 71. Improvements
were made to one Highway 98
crossing this spring, but
there is nothing in the report
concerning the other two
crossings on Highway 98.
The report also says reha-
bilitation work will be per-
formed on St. Joe Bay Bridge
on SR 30 during fiscal 1987.
Work is outlined for rehabi-
litation of the ANRR over-
pass on Highway 98, but at
least some of that work has
already been done.


45 Kids Try Their Luck Monday


Forty-five kids of all ages registered for the annual
"Buck Griffin Fishing Rodeo" Monday and spent the,
day trying out the several lakes on St. Josiph Bay
Country Club golf course. The program was sponsored
by the summer recreation program, sponsored each
year by the City of Port St. Joe.
Large fish as well as large numbers of fifth were
caught in this year's rodeo, according to Bill farlow,
the man in charge. Barlow, a 54-year-old kid hmself,
has guided the rodeo for the past few years. He said this
year's results were the best ever recorded from the
country club lakes. "Nearly all the contestants caught


fish", he said. "They all had a good time".
The most fish caught by one person in the rodeo,
was a string of 50 which was brought in by Frank
Dykes. The largest fish caught, was a seven and a half
pound bass reeled in by Warren Renfro.
Winners in the rodeo are shown above with their
trophies and Frank Dykes hanging on to that string of
50 fish. Left to right, are: Brad Stephens, best
sportsman; Kendrick Addison, largest shellcracker at
one pound, Dykes, Barlow, Renfro, Chris Walding,
largest bream at one pound and Chad Arrant, catfish
award. -Star photos


Biggest Fish
Warren Renfro didn't catch the most fish Monday
at the "Buck Griffin Fishing Rodeo", but there was no
argument that he caught the largest fish. Renfro hung
on to this huge seven and a half pound largemouth bass
during the day and nearly wore him out before the day
was over, showing him off to anyone who would stop for
a minute. Renfro hung the huge bass on a Rebel lure.
Not only did the bass set a record for the tournament
Monday, the fish is also the largest bass to be caught In
the country club lakes since fishing has been allowed.

Thanks for the Lessons

I was first introduced to
the Port St. Joe High School
"Class of '76" in August of
1970. It was our first year in
the new school and I was
strolling out of A pod kind'a
admiring the freshness of
the new building and very
much minding my own
business when I got run over.
As I was a'picking myself up
and searching for the truck I
thought "Now this is going to
be a fun year!"
Instead of the truck I ex-
pected I looked down at a
young girl frantically recov-
ering pencils, paper and
books that were almost big-
ger than she was. "Well,
young lady, I'm glad you
were coming out of a corner
when you hit me if you'd


have been on a straight-a-
way, you'd have shifted into
high gear and I don't think I
could have survived."
She looked as frightened
as anyone that I'd ever seen,
her eyes were as big as
silver dollars and her mouth
was moving but nothing was
coming out.
"Don't worry, I sometimes
get run over two or three
times a day out here I
-- think one of us was going the
wrong way. What grade are
you in?"
She was trying to form the
words but she just couldn't
get anything out. It was pret-
ty obvious that she was a 7th
grader and this was her first
day of school.
"What's your name?"


Still nothing, but I could
see a big tear forming in
each eye. The tardy bell
rang.
"You'd better get on to
class." As she headed on into
A pod I called out, "The
speed limit in the halls is 35
m.p.h."
As I would reflect back on
that "introduction" for the
next six years, I realized
what an unusual thing had
taken place. That was the
first, last and only time I saw
a member of the "Class of
'76" at a loss for words. Now
I had a couple of boys that
sat near the back of my 4th
period P.A.D. class that
didn't say much but it
doesn't count when you are
asleep. And I'd have a few


more absent than usual
when the weather got warm
so the room was a little
quieter. But heck I knew
they were making plenty of
noise at the beach.
I once saw "one of the
quieter boys" at a junior
varsity football game on a
foggy night put the football
up under his jersey and take
off around the right end. For
a few moments there no one
knew where the ball was. I
thought it was a pretty, good
play.
And I'm still hearing
stories about a trip to Talla-
hassee a group went on for a
speech contest ....
I'm just thankful that none
of them thought of sliding
down the dome of the gym..

Kate Smith Called Down God's Blessings On America During Her Career


IT MAY BE THAT I am part of
the generation that was; and maybe I
am just a little bit of a nerd, but a
news flash last week recalled some
days which beg to be remembered
with rich memories and nostalgia.
The news announced last week
that Kate Smith had died. I lived in
the generation which enjoyed her
singing and helped add to her
popularity.
I remember when Kate Smith
could be heard coming from the radio
at almost any time; live show or
records, night or day, week end or
week days. Kate Smith was always
there with her clear, melodious voice,
singing loud enough and enunciating
clear enough to be understood by all
who heard her sing. It might have
been because she wasn't ashamed to
say the words in the songs she sang. It
may have been because she knew the
words could be listened to by all ages
without embarrassing them or her.
ACCORDING TO THE news
stories about her death last week,
Kate Smith was 79 years old. She was
an institution in the music world in


this nation in the 1930's through the
1950's, until the shaggy beards, the
lewd language, the dirty look and the
dope took over in much of the music
world.


clothes half off to put her song across.
She just stood up, smiled, gripped the
microphone, tossed her head back and

musical voice. Her "style" captivated


ETA!OIN SHRDLU
By: Wesley R. Ra


Kate Smith wasn't one of your sex
pot singers. She was a comfortable
looking woman who was too heavy,
too tall and not painted up enough to
meet today's standards for a singer.
Even so, not a one of today's singers
have the popularity Kate Smith did.
nor do they compliment their talent
like Smith did.
When Kate Smith sang, she didn't
have to screw up her face, wring her
hands, sway her hips, or wear her


program on the radio every day
around noon. Then she had another
program at night. She cut records and
she appeared iii live programs and at
charity functions.


msey


America.
It would even today.

I DON'T KNOW what has become
of the real talent like Kate Smith had.
Even Frank Sinatra, who has prob-
ably bridged the generation gap
better than any other singer in today's
music world, couldn't captivate aft
audience like Kate Smith did.
I remember she had a 30 minute


Like I say, she wasn't a show
piece. but she was always busy and
she wcs a favorite.
Katp Smith had no formal musical
training. She termed her voice and
singing ability as a "God-given gift".
It was obvious that Kate Smith didn't
sing a song unless she could empa-
thize Vith the words. There was no
play-ating where she was concerned.
Maybe that was what made her
singing so popular and her career so


long and uncluttered with spectacular
news items to keep her alive in the
people's minds.

TWO SONGS WERE the hallmark
of Kate Smith. She will always be
remembered by those who ever heard
her sing, for' her rendition of "When
the Moon Comes Over the Mountain",
a simple tune with a wistful message,
which canie alive when she sang it.
Another was "God Bless Amer-
ica" which she introduced right
around the start of World War II and
was sung more in the United States
during those years than was the
National Anthem or "America". The
song was probably known by more
Americans than any other song in
history, before or since.
Kate Smith kept America smiling
and singing during World War II and
made them proud to be Americans.
Even though her songs were designed
to comfort the hearts of a nation at
war, they were also designed to weld
the nation together into one big family
with a singleness of purpose.
If Kate Smith were alive today,


singing "God Bless America" she
would probably draw the unwanted
attention of some of our groups here in
America who seemed determined to
remove any semblance of God from
alongside the word America, all in the
guise of religious freedom. She would
probably draw pickets when she
appeared as a guest on one of the TV
shows of today to call down God's
blessings on America in a way only
she could.
In those days, people didn't even
consider making a woman president
of the United States, but if they had
even considered it even slightly, I'm
sure Kate Smith's name would have
been at the top of the list.
She .was a person who put forth a
clean facade and there was not even a
hint of a word of scandal to suggest
that her life was anything but what
she reflected it to be.
'+.+ + + +
KATE SMITH GOT the attention
of God, I think, in her rousing song. As
a consequence, it appears to me He
has blessed our nation. I'm not right
sure America has blessed God, how-
ever.

them about Jane Fonda,

PHANTRY

Dirty Dirt Eaters
SOMETIME BACK the fad was to eat live goldfish.
Later on someone came up with the bright idea that
eating worms was the thing to do. A few people, I
understand, started worm farms to supply the
worm-eaters and give the fishermen a break.
++++
DIRT EATING IS not the latest fad as far as I
know. Dirt eating has been going on for quite some
time. As a matter of fact, dirt eating dates as far back
as Aristotle's time, if the article I read is correct. The
art of eating dirt is called geophagy. Someone who eats
- dirt is called a fool.
The thing that really caught my eye in the articles I
read was the fact that dirt eating is world wide. In the
United States, however, dirt eating is most prevalent in
rural areas, particularly in the South. I believe this is
true. If there are people who eat dirt, they would have
to eat it ih the South there ain't none up North.
+++++
ANOTHER IMPORTANT POINT the article
mentioned was the fact that most dirt eaters prefer
clay to sand or topsoil. It went on to say that in urban
(Northern) areas where good dirt is scarce, dirt-eaters
substitute laundry starch or baking soda. I believe this
is true, too. That is why I moved from the big city to a
small town.
All of this important information came from a
group of distinguished 'scientists who met in
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to discuss dirt-eating. The
main reason they met in Philadelphia, I think, is so they
wouldn't be tempted to try geophagy. I have never been
to Philadelphia, but I'll bet the dirt-eaters there buy a
lot of starch and soda. There can't be much dirt, or good
dirt, I might say.
:++++
I AM NOT A dirt-eater. To my knowledge I have
never taken a full bite of dirt, chewed .it up and
swallowed it. I did eat some sand last weekend while at
the beach. I dropped the last hot dog in the sand and I
was about to starve. Some days back I woke up and the
taste in my mouth was like dirt or worse, but I finally '
realized I had just had a hard night at the "watering
hole."
As far as I know, none of my close friends eat dirt.
If they do, they have never bragged to me about it. I'm
going to look closer at their dirty dishes on my next
visit. You never can tell when you might have a closet
dirt-eater for a best friend; :
I HAVE THE FEELING that these articles are not I
correct about the location of most of the dirt eaters.
True, there is an abundance of clay in the south.
However, we must consider the population as a whole.,
There are more kooks on the east coast or Chicago than
there are, say, in Atlanta. That, of course, is my
opinion, but I get it from reading the paper.
You watch, it won't be long before some smart,
eager-to-be-rich person will come up with the bright
idea of selling dirt. He'll probably package it in several
Sflavorsand have a le of-fine cldays for kids. Chances
lu_(e.hetlldvertise ifnsonl the larger'eifies up North
'and on the east coast. He'll probably make a fortune.
I think I'll start with Philadelphia. They know what
geophagy is.

looked great. And they were

They asked me to get up
and say a few words. Well, I
wanted to thank them for-
thinking enough of me to in-

wanted to tell them how
much they had given me dur-

them for the fun we shared
and the memories. I stood
up, cleared my throat, look-

Florida seventh graders
who participated in Duke

University June 10.
The students invited to the
ceremony have scored on at
least one section of the

than the scores obtained by
50 percent of college-bound
high school seniors. The
students took the college
entrance test as participants
.in Duke University's Talent
Identification Program
(TIP).
"TIP was initiated in 1980.
to identify bright young

their special abilities, and to
direct them toward special

Sawyer, director of the pro-
gram.
It is one of four university-
based talent searches which
together cover the entire
United States.
The 643 Florida students
scored at least 450 out of 800
points on the mathematics
portion of the SAT (500 for
boys), or 430 out of 800 points'
on the verbal portion, or 52
out of 60 points on the Test of

All participants receive Cer-

Florida Highway Patrol
Director, Colonel Bobby R.
Burkett announced plans re-
cently to implement an In-
tensified Speed Limit En-
forcement (ISLE) campaign
by the Patrol beginning June
27 and extending through
September 1.
The federally subsidized
program will provide addi-
tional trooper manhours to
patrol Florida's highways for
intensified enforcement of
speed laws. This Federal
program will also provide
funds for the purchase of new
VASCAR speed timing de-
vices to be installed in FHP
patrol cars.
Colonel Burkett said, "This
program will allow the Pa-

trol an additional 34,700
manhours of .enforcement to
the existing force of troopers
during the historically dan-
gerous summer months. This
additional enforcement re-
source will be a valuable tool
during a time when schools
are out and our summer
visitor population is high.
This program was planned so
that it would include the
Independence and Labor Day
holiday periods."
In addition, the Patrol will
be conducting a media cam-
paign entitled "We Know

of public service announce-
ments and literature aimed
at increasing compliance
with the 55 speed law. This

goes. If you are a June bride (or even a May bride) or
any kind of bride and just setting up housekeeping, we
* know you are in the middle of loads of important
decisions. You are trying to get everything off to a good
start and want to choose things carefully. Choosing a
w pharmacy is certainly something to be given careful
a thought.
s It's important to know that any prescriptions you
need to have filled will be correctly handled and any
specific instructions for deriving the full benefit of
your medication will be, explained. We will gladly
order any hard-to-find item for you.

Eye Openers"

BABY BOOMERS
Yesterday's baby boomers
will soon be needing glasses
to help them read. Some
already have them. There
are many types of lenses
that can help your eyes ad-
just from seeing distant ob-
jects to seeing objects at
arm's length or closer.
* Single vision lenses only
make close vision tasks
comfortable and clearer.
* Bifocals have two distinct-
ly divided segments: the
upper one lets you see dis-
tant objects clearly; the
lower makes close objects
clearer for longer periods
of time.
* Blended bifocals are the
same as bifocals, but there
is no telltale dividing line
separating the correction
for distance and for near.
* Progressive lenses are
multitocal. In addition to a
distance and near correc-
tion, there is an invisible
middle channel for seeing
intermediate objects.
Just which type of lens is
right for yOu should be deter-
mined by you, your lifestyle
and your optometrist.

operating budgets for fiscal year 1986-87. Please submit
your requests accordingly." Branch's memo was dated
April 9.
Branch then whipped out another letter, signed by
Gates, which said: "As the county budget officer
responsible for preparing the budget, I am asking you to
re-submit your budget request that was returned to you at
the instructions of County Commission Chairman, Billy
Branch. Mr. Branch has over stepped his authority and has
no constitutional right to regulate the tentative budget
prepared by me for submission to the complete Board in a
regular session. Your cooperation is appreciated."
Gates' memo was dated June 17.
To say Branch was hot about the matter, is to put it
mildly. The chairman was even in favor of hiring another
fiscal agent to prepare the new budget; an avenue attorney
Gibson said the Board had open to it.
Gates wasn't present at the meeting Tuesday night,
but he and Branch are due to clash when next they get
together. The buried hatchet has been dug up and the two
antagonists are currently circling the wagons.
COMPUTER BIDS TAKEN
Before the fireworks started in Tuesday night's
meeting, the Board received bids on a computer system
which would serve the entire Courthouse needs.
Most of the bids were a little surprising to the Board,
since most came in near the $200,000 mark. Nearly a half
hour was spent in locating the final price on the 11 bids
received, since most of the bids were voluminous
documents-apparently spit out of a computer.
Three of the bids were in the $100,000 range, still above
what the Board had expected to pay for a computer
system.
GARBAGE COMPLAINT
G. E. Webb, owner of Argus Services, asked the Board
to remove some of their outlying garbage collection
containers. Webb, who is operating a house-to-house
pick-up service in both beach areas of the county,
Overstreet and Wewahitchka, said many of his customers
are opting to carry their garbage to the collection trailers
rather than subscribe for pick-up. "A lot of the garbage is
thrown on the ground at the trailers, as you well know", he
said.
Webb said his service is reasonable and dependable,
furnishing once a week pick-up at $6.00 a month and twice a
week pick-up at $8.00 a month.
The Commission said they would take his presentation
under study and decide what to do about the matter.


Course to

Be Taught
A hunter education class
will be offered in Port St. Joe
July 7 through the 12 and is
offered free of charge to the
public by the Florida Game
and Fresh Water Fish Com-
mission.
Classes will be taught
nightly July 7, 9, 10 and 11
from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. EST in
the Florida Power Corpora-
, tion building on Reid Ave. In
addition to class time, each
person must also participate
in an outdoor range class on
the 12th.
Over 100,000 persons have
successfully completed Flor-
ida's voluntary hunter edu-
cation course sinde the mid
'70s and become certified
safe hunters. Recently Eglin
Air Force Base and St.
Marks National Wildlife Re-
fuge announced plans to
require the course of young
hunters beginning in the fall
of 1987.
"The thing we emphasize
over and over in the course is
safety," said Lt. Deon Temp-
fer, the Commission's hunter
education coordinator in the
panhandle. "Having a safe,
clean hunt is all impotarit." .
"Another important idea
that we try to instill in
outdoor users is respect for
the landowner and environ-
ment. The days are gone
when you can mistreat the
landowner or his property
and expect to be welcomed
back," she added.
Tempfer said parents are
urged to tale the course with
their sons! and daughter.
Persons interested in taking
the course 6re urged to call
the Commission's Panama
City office at 1-800-342-1676
to pre-register.

near drowning accident in a
swimming pool. With quick
reaction from bystanders
this youngster was retrieved
from the water and CPR
begun. Being in the near
vicinity, Sheriff Al Harrison
was on the scene within
minutes to render aid and
ambulance personnel were
enroute. Before the ambu-
lance arrived Sheriff Harri-
son transmitted a joyous

GC Students

Rate High

In Testing
According, to a report re-
leased by Commissioner of
Education Ralph Turlington,
the percentage of Gulf Coast
Community College students
who passed the March 1986
College-Level Academic
Skills Test (CLAST) is the
second highest of all state
public colleges and universi-
ties.
With a passing percentage
of 96.2 percent, GCCC stu-
dents performed better than
students at all of the state's
universities. Only students
from Indian River Communi-
ty College (97.7 percent) had
a higher passing percentage
than Gulf Coast students. The
average passing percentage
in the state was 89.2 percent.
Turlington's report shows
that 161 GCCC students took
the CLAST, while 89 Indian
River students took the test.
State-wide, a total of 14,201
students in 37 public institu-
tions took the test.

Linda Jackson
Graduates
Linda Jackson, daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. Bobby Jackson
of Port St. Joe, recently
received a Bachelor of Arts
degree in the annual com-
mencement exercises at
Huntingdon College in Mont-
gomery, Alabama.
While attending Hunting-
don she was active in student
affairs, including various de-
partmental clubs and the
Student Government Asso-
ciation.
Huntingdon College is a
private, liberal arts college
associated with the United
Methodist Church and boasts
and enrollment of approxi-
mately 800 students.

Sgt. Hernandez
In Honduras
SSGT. Alejandro S. Her-
nandez has recently comple-
ted three months of tempor-
ary duty at Palmorela AB,
Honduras in which he parti-
cipated in combined forces
JTF Bravo exercise.
Hernandez is an air traffic


controller with the 1877 ISS at

His wife, Jo, is the daugh-

Hobbs of Port St. Joe.


which then causes uncon-
sciousness. When a victim
reaches the stage of uncon-
sciousness is when the throat
spasms relax and the lungs
fill with water.
A drowning victim is in
most cases easily resuscita-
ted if prompt action is taken
to retrieve them from the
water and artificial ventila-
tions are begun. But before
you go out to rescue a
swimmer in trouble make
sure you are a good strong
swimmer and you can get
something for them to grab
on to. If you go out to rescue
someone in trouble keep in
mind that if you aren't
careful you may also become
a victim. A swimmer in
trouble will do anything to
save themselves and that
includes trying to climb on
top of you to get above the
water. So try to get a rope,
beach towel or even an ice
chest that floats out to the
troubled swimmer.
Next week I will continue
with more information on
near drownings. Remember
be smart and think because
you can make a difference.


is 10-4. the child is O.K."
When ambulance personnel
arrived the sound of life was
heard, a crying child. With
this incident as proof we can
say our system works-and a
big thanks for a job well done
is in order for everyone
involved. A life has been
saved.
Last year drownings were
listed as the fourth leading
cause of death in the United
States and in eighty seven
percent of these deaths alco-
hol was a contributing factor.
Near drowning can be de-
fined as "the one's who made
it" and drowning victims as
"not so lucky". The symp-
toms of near drowning are
described as being overcome
by water with a small
amount of water reaching the
throat and lungs. In the near
drowning victim water
reaches the throat and cau-
ses it to go into spasms to
protect the lungs from filling
with water. You will see the
victim coughing, gagging,
vomiting and gasping for air.
In a majority of cases the
throat spasms are so severe
that the victim cannot breath

We've got the new Xerox 60;
It's typing made easiest.

Xerox asked secretaries what they wanted
in an electronic typewriter. They said,
"Make it easy."
So Xerox created a Memorywriter with
so many automatic features, typing simply
couldn't be easier:
Automatic correction, boldface, under-
lining, centering, indenting, block editing,
carrier return, right flush, line spacing,
decimal tabs, column formats, pitch
selection, proportional spacing, paper
insertion, and more.
And now it's here-the new Xerox 6020
Memorywriter.
It's still the basic typewriter secretaries
want-for forms, for envelopes, for
labels.
Yet it's got word processor power to
make most documents a breeze.
With a 3-line display which shows them
text, features being used, and helpful
directions.

"These funds represent

sistance the state will pro-
vide to, local government to

comprehensive planning pro-
cess," Lewis said.

least eight basic elements,

addition, the 35 counties

elements on Mass Transit

completed through that time.
The final work product is due
to be submitted to the

DCA Signs

Contract with

County for Plan


The state Department of
Community Affairs has sign-
ed a contract with Gulf
County to provide $30,181 to
help the county revise and
update its comprehensive
plan.
The agreement, approved.
by county and DCA officials,
will assist the county in
meeting the requirements of
last year's growth manage-
ment legislation.
"One of the DCA's major
-roles is to provide assistance
to local governments, and I
am pleased we can offer this
particular support to Gulf
County," DCA Secretary
Tom Lewis, Jr. said.
Under the 1985 legislation,
Florida's 458 counties and,
cities must revise their local
comprehensive plans. The
plans, which serve as a
blueprint for future growth,
have been required of all
local governments since 1975,
but last year's legislation
strengthened the required
plan contents and gave re-
view authority to DCA.
The funding announced re-
cently is part of $2.3 miion-
allocated by the
last year to help Q.iiti s

The Department of Agri-
culture's Farmers Home Ad-
ministration has begun
"Operation Assist" in which
FmHA county supervisors
will take completed farm
credit applications to local
banks or other lenders to try
to help farmers obtain gua-
: ranteed operating loans,
FmHA Administrator Vance
" L. Clark said recently.
Clark said operation assist
"is an attempt to use all
financial credit resources
available to FmHA to meet
the demand for farm operat-
ing funds, specifically, un-
used loan guarantee authori-
- ty." Under that authority,


.5


-.3


FmHA agrees to pay the
bank or other lender 90
percent of any loss if the
farmer cannot repay the
loan.
In some cases, FmHA's
direct operating loan funds
may not be sufficient to
finance every farmer who
applies for a loan, Clark said.
"There is almost $800 million
still available for the guaran-
tee program. We think other
lenders will cooperate with
FmHA in making operating
credit available, especially if
FmHA has completed most
of the paperwork before-
hand."
