Fireworks will be the climax of an
Independence Day celebration-here in
Port St. Joe Friday night, as the
Volunteer Fire department puts on a
display in the City Park at dark Friday
night.
The fireworks display,- which .has
become a tradition in just a few short
years here in Port St. Joe, were
purchased by the city for the Fire
Department to touch off in a big salute to
our nation's birth.
The display will be put on at the end
of Fifth Street, where the fireworks will
be set off over St. Joseph's Bay to ensure
safety.
Each year the crowd watching 'the
display grows-larger and each year, the-
fireworks package changes a little and
grows in size. Fire Chief Collier

estimates it .will take about 30 minutes to
set off the display. ,
. Prior tp the fireworks display,
entertainment has been scheduled for the
evening, and several local civic clubs and .
groups will operate refreshment booths,
selling items such as cold watermelon,
soft drinks and snack foods such as
hamburgers and hot dogs.
But the big attraction of the evening
will be the fireworks. Since inception of
the show some five years ago, the
attraction has drawn spectators from the
Fifth Street Park to Oak. Grove, where
many people are parked alongside,
Highway 98, where it touches the Bay, for .
a ringside seat of the display.
Fire Chief Collier said the first
"cracker" will be set off at dark, around
9:00 p.m.

A discussion on working
hours and shift requirements
in the Police Department,
resulted in a motion to send
out requests for applications
for a full time Chief of Police
to replace interim chief
Robert Maige Tuesday night.
In a discussion of about an
hour. and a half, Police
Patrolman Benny Tiller com-
plained about his shift, which
he said changes once a month
and dispatcher Bill White
Eagle filed a mild protest
about having to work the
night shift all the time.
After all the discussion, it
was determined that one
member- of the department
didn't work the late shift as
much as Tiller, but the other
seven men on the force did.
All change shifts once a
month and, according to
Chief Maige, prefer the four
week shift before changing
Tiller had a complaint that
his shift didn't allo" him

White Eagle agreed he was
told what his shift would be

When the vote. was count-

Commissioners Roberts,
Fleming and Mayor Pate
opposed it..
Mayor Pate then advised
Tiller and White Eagle to
meet with Chief Maige and
Police Commissioner Flem-
ing to discuss their problem.
Both admitted they had not
taken the matter up with the
Chief.
Mayor Pate pointed out,
that Maige did :the City a
favor two years ago, taking
over the department when
they had no leadership and
"straightened. it out". The
Mayor went on to say Chief
Maige had performed a
valuable' service with the
department and he (Pate)
was in favor of maintaining
him in the position so long as
he was willing to remain and
continue to build up the

A block of Second Street will carry only one way traffic

beginning early next week. The .City of Port St. Joe
designated the street as a one way street about a month
ago at the request of postmaster Robert Oliver, who made
the request to allow for installation of a drive-in mail drop
service on the north side of the Post Office building.
The special traffic limits will apply only between
Highway 98 and Baltzell Avenue on Second Street. Traffic
will be directed to travel only in a westerly, direction from
Highway 98 to Baltzell.
The street signs were put into place Tuesday but
covered over until the Post Office makes its drive-in drop

Monday or Tuesday.

He Enriched Many Lives


George Tapper Buried with Military Honors


Five jet aircraft swooped overhead
and a military color guard stood at
attention as George Geraud Tapper, 69,
was laid to rest Monday in Holly Hill
Cemetery, marking probably one of his
least known exploits in a long and
eventful life.
Tapper died Saturday evening, after
a three year bout with cancer, dying like
he lived-with dignity.
Tapper wasn't a native of Port St.
Joe, but moved here at a very early age
with his family in 1918 and making Port
St. Joe his home ever since. During the
course of his lifetime, Tapper became
well known throughout the State of
Florida and in much of the nation beyond
Florida. Still, people would ask, "Where
is Port St. Joe?"
Tapper was always eager to be doing
something productive. As a young boy he

sold fish he gleaned off the pogey boats
which operated in Port St. Joe. As a
teen-ager, he was a blacksmith's helper
and as he began to reach adult-hood, he
lied about his age and joined the
newly-formed Highway Patrol, purchas-
ing his own motorcycle to get the job.
Tapper started serving his county
early, getting elected as the 'youngest
member ever to serve on the County
Commission. When World War II broke
out, he joined the Army Air Corps and
served as a pilot of the bomber, "The


7NS ,


. &


GEORGE G. TAPPER
Madam" named after his mother. He
reached the rank of captain and received
13 decorations, including the Distin-
guished Flying Cross, the Silver Star and
the Air Medal
After the War was over, Tapper
came back home and immediately ran
for election in the Florida House. He


served in the 1947, 1949 and 1951 sessions.
He then was elected to the Florida Senate
in 1953 and was president pro tern of that
body two years later. After a 10-year
absence from the Senate, he was
re-elected in 1965 and attended the 1966
session which saw the demise of the
"Pork Chop Gang".
In spite of his accomplishments in
the state and the nation, which saw him
rise to heights very few men achieve, he
was better known here in Port St. Joe as
a man who gets things done, whether it
was in the political or business world.
People in Port St. Joe knew Tapper was a
candidate for Lieutenant Governor with
Earl Faircloth, but they depended on
him, instead, to intercede with state
government officials when things got
tough.
It was well known he was a favorite
of President Jimmy Carter and repre-
sented the President and the United
States at the inauguration of Pope John
Paul II and other functions of protocol,
but he was known in Port St. Joe and Gulf
County as a person who could open doors
in Washington, D.C., or intercede in
areas where Congressmen failed.
Even though he- had audiences with
the Pope and special recognition from
the Vatican. he was known here in Port
St. Joeas as a staunch supporter of his local
church and its needs.


Tapper has his corps of special
friends here in Port St. Joe, who singly
and collectively say they will miss him
terribly now that he is dead.
J. Lamar Miller, one of these select
friends, said: "We went on many trips
together, to baseball and football games,
and he was always a prince of a fellow.
He was the best friend I have ever had
since I have been in Port St. Joe. He was
always first class."
Dr. Bob King, another in the select
circle of friends, said: "He had the most
foresight of anyone I have ever known.
He could make plans for five or ten years
down the road. He spent 20 years making
money and then another 20 years giving
it away and using it to help people. He
was one unique individual".
Dr. Joe Hendrix, a neighbor and
friend, said: "Tapper was a winner.
There was never a day he awoke that was
not a challenge, some problem to solve,
often a monumental one and most often
for someone else. This is why everyone
that knew George Tapper is at a loss.
Even with his cancer, as horrible as it
was and with multiple complications, he
awoke his last day figuring ways to solve
the latest problem. We all will miss this
man and his many abilities. God rest his
weary soul".
Tom Coldewey, another neighbor

George Tapper Will



-Never be Forgotten
i.


"You can be sure the world will
be worse off with the passing away
of George Tapper", Dr. Larry
Tyree, President of Gulf Coast
Community College remarked dur-
ing his Eulogy of George Tapper
Monday afternoon.
Since this is a local paper, we
will localize Dr. Tyree's statement
a little more and say, "You can be
sure Gulf County will be worse off
with the passing away of George
Tapper".
Tapper left his footprints all
over Gulf County in his activities as'
a mover, a developer and one who
liked to see things happen. Making
things happen seemed to be the
thing George Tapper liked to do
best.
And, he was good at it. In fact
he was probably the best at making
things happen to ever hit this part
of Florida, which has seen its share
of pretty fair makers of things
to happen.
It might be trite to say George
Tapper was a self-made man, but
it's a true statement. From a
blacksmith's helper to one who


rubs shoulders with Presidents,
Popes, Governors, Senators, Con-
gressmen, janitors each with
gressmen, janitors He was at
ease and made others feel at ease
in whatever level of soceity he
found himself. He could talk to
anyone in a manner which made
him understood and believed. To
every level of society, color, age,
creed or nationality, he was .
"George".
He liked it that way and those
around him felt comfortable with
things that way.
Gulf County has lost perhaps
its most valuable citizen to a bout
with cancer. He left some enemies,
but he left far more friends than he
did enemies. His accomplishments
are too numerous to enumerate
here on this page, but suffice it to
say, we can go farther than the old
time-worn phrase of "he won't soon
be forgotten".'.
We can't envision George
Tapper ever being forgotten. He
made his mark and all of Gulf
County will benefit from it for so
long as there is a Gulf County.

July Fourtl

THE OTHER DAY I was driving
up to the home of my youngest son,
Alford, and was pulling into position to
park my car on the side of the house
n just off Palm Boulevard.
A group of kids were playing there
in the.street-as they usually are-
and grandson, Chris, called out, "Pull
on down some, Papaw, we're shooting
fireworks here!"
Here it was two weeks before July
Fourth and in a state which doesn't
allow the sale or the discharge of
fireworks, and I was being told,
"We're shooting fireworks":
I pulled, on down like I was
instructed to do and parked near the
end of the yard and stepped out of the
car. I watched the kids for awhile to
; see if they were really shooting
fireworks, what kind they were
and, most of all, to see if their parents
knew they had fireworks. It was sort
of a dual purpose stop.
But after a few minutes went by
and I didn't hear the first familiar
"bang" of fireworks, I decided I had
misunderstood, they were kidding or
they were making belief. Then I went
into the house.

PRETTY SOON, Chris and some
of his friends came in the house-you
know, to sort of walk through, then
walk on outside again, so they could

the house.
While they were in the house,
Chris took out some red packages
which looked suspiciously to me like
the packages fireworks came in when
I was a kid. It hasn't been so long ago I
can't remember, you understand.
I wondered aloud where they had
come in possession of the fireworks
and they told me where saying they

Still, in spite of these painful
injuries, we still just could hardly wait
until July Fourth came around and we

could tempt fate with some more of
those loud firecrackers.
The louder the better.
Momma always gave us a dollar
each prior to the Fourth to buy our
firecrackers with. A dollar would buy
a lot of the noisy kind, but not so many
of the pretty kind. Since the noisy kind
held our greatest interest, we were
satisfied.
The next 'morning, July Fourth,
we'd be up bright and early and go to
shooting fireworks at about sun-up.
Cans were blown up. Chinks in
trees were blasted. Bottle tops were
sent sailing into the air. Pipes were
turned into cannon and piles of dirt
were blown into the air as we
celebrated.
We couldn't have been happier if
we had a million dollars.

Therefore, I'm just as satisfied,

satisfaction when the big explosions
go off in the air out over the Bay as
there was in seeing a coffee can lid
sail high into the air long years ago,
when a big, red, two-incher went off.
With me, the fireworks nostalgi-
cally recall the days of my boyhood '.
when the day which was second only
to Christmas rolled around.
For those of today's generation,
I'm sure the fireworks are building a
stack of memories to remember on
July Fourths in the future.
One day, we may not even be able
to purchase fireworks for such a
display, as we do now. It has
happened thusly with individuals
purchasing the fireworks.
Momma used to say we were
wasting that money, burning it up
shooting off those firecrackers, roman
candles, sky rockets, star wheels,
etc., but we sure did enjoy it.
If our people enjoy the fireworks
display half as much as they appear to
here in Port St. Joe, that $3,000 spent
every year for the display is some of
the best money our city spends, in my
opinion.

SHAD

A PHANTRY
by Wendell Campbell
IL.


Laid-Back
I SUPPOSE THAT by now everyone has heard the
term "laid-back."
The first time I heard it was about three years ago in
New Orleans. I had travelled there with a young
business associate. While there, I decided to visit an
old college friend, Tom Harrison, and his lovely wife,
Mary Charles. My business associate was invited to
meet Tom and Mary since we were travelling in his
car.
After a few drinks and a relaxed visit, my
associate and I departed for the motel. "Tom and Mary
are real fine people," he remarked as we dodged cars
on Canal Street.
"They surely are," I agreed. I've known them for
years and they are just wonderful folks."
"Yeah," he replied, "and they are really laid-
back, too."
"They surely are," I replied, not knowing what I
had agreed to about my good friends. "They are cer-
tainly laid-back," I concluded.
SINCE THEN I have heard the term many times,
but mostly in bigger cities. I've heard it used in Little
Rock, Nashville, Memphis, Knoxville, and more
recently, in the Big "A," Hotlanta, Georgia. It is used
on every street comer and every turn of the radio knob
in the Big "A".
WITH THIS ASSOCIATED background of usage, I
am now ready to know what the term "laid-back"
means. For quite some time I believed the term meant
that someone was lazy. My friend Tom is a little lazy,
but then, who isn't? If that were the meaning, I would
be classified laid-back forever! It couldn't mean lazy, I
decided.
Then I thought, it must mppan people who have
money and just act lazy. Rich, folks, you know, never
get in a rush to go anywhere 9r to do anything. They
realize that if they don't get there today or get to do a
particular thing today, there i *Jways tomorrow. That
money is in the bank and it Will spend just as well
tomorrow as it will today.
MEDIUM-POOR TO PO"Q folks like me (the lat-
ter bracket, please), however can't wait! We must do
it today or go today for tomQiow wmay not come. We
don't have enough money for 'e bank, and what little
we do have burns holes in our already worn-out
pockets. I discounted this theory when I learned that
rich folks are the ones supporting the dope pushers and
the psychiatrists in the world. Most of them are "laid to
rest" prematurely.
WHAT THEN, I asked myself, does the term,
"laid-back" mean? I don't know, I answered. And I
still don't. I know a lot of things it doesn't mean. It
doesn't refer to any particular age, race, sex or region
of the country. Although it refers to people, animals
may have a bearing on whether a person is laid-back or
not. If, for instance, he has a dog that eats out of his
plate at the table while he-has guests, then he isdaid-
iohbaek. Toa,.certain-extent., ...
I m 'ay- never know "the true definition of
"laid-back" and I don't really care. If you must refer to
me in posture terms, just call me "sitting up" and hap-
py in a small town.

the sake of $30,000.00 provid-
ed by the State?" and "Why
didn't the county approach
the two cities in the county to
make a joint effort?"
To begin with, I did contact
both cities about joining the.
county in the Comprehensive
Plan, but the State has made
it difficult for the counties
and the cities to participate
jointly in this plan. They
have done this by requiring
'each to follow a different set
of deadlines and by releasing
funds in accordance with


Ihose different deadlines. If
"the cities chose to join the
county in the Plan the cities
would have to move their
deadlline date up to comply
with the county's and there
would be no state funding for
the city's portion of the Plan.
Each level of government
must develop a Growth Man-
agement Comprehensive
Plan; Ahe State, the Region,
the County, and the Cities.
Every plan must be in
compliance with the levels of
government above them, i.e.

persons accused of wildlife
and drug law violations in the
Wewahitchka area.
Col. Brantley Goodson, di-

meat and game animal meat.
All 19 suspects have been
jailed or cited to court,
except one who already is in
prison.
Goodson identified the sus-
pects as:
Wayne Gray, 29, three
counts of selling freshwater
game fish, to wit: speckled
perch and bluegills; five
counts of selling deer meat;
two counts of selling alligator
snapping turtle.
Johnnie E. Armstrong, Sr.,
61, one count of selling
alligator snapping turtle; one
count of possession of more
than one alligator snapping
turtle; two counts of selling
deer meat.
William Armstrong, 38, one
count of selling alligator
turtle meat and possession of
more than one alligator
snapping turtle; three counts
of selling deer meat.
Ed Causey, 25, two counts
of selling deer meat.
Edward Nobles, 25, three
counts of selling freshwater
game fish, to wit: bluegills,
bream and bass; one count of
selling alligator snapping
turtle meat.
Dale Hall, 34, two counts of
selling alligator snapping
turtle; two counts of selling
deer meat; two counts of
taking freshwater game fish
by illegal methods, to wit:
fish baskets; two counts of
selling freshwater game
fish; to wit, bass and bream.
Winifred Lee Pitts, 34, one
count of selling alligator
snapping turtle meat.

Goodson said the allega-
tions of dealing in alligator
snapping turtle meat are
particularly alarming since
the reptiles are classified as
a species of special, concern.
He said they seem to be
undergoing extreme popula-
tion decreases. Individuals
are allowed to possess no
more than one alligator
snapping turtle and the rep-
tiles may not be sold at all.
"This was one of several
circles of individuals we
believe are involved in this
type of activity in the Wewa-
hitchka area," Goodson said.
"We hope this case will put a
big dent in illegal wildlife
traffic in the panhandle."
Shortly before daylight
June 25, wildlife officers
began making arrests in
connection with the case. By
late evening June 26, seven
individuals had been arrest-
ed and the others had been
served with notices to appear
in court. Arrest warrants
were issued by Circuit Judge
Don Sirmons of Panama
City.
Goodson said State Attor-
ney Jim Appleman and As-
sistant State Attorney Larry
Basford worked closely with
the Commission in conduct-
ing the investigation.
"The state attorneys and
their staffs deserve a lot of
credit for the long and late
hours they worked to help us
complete this investigation,"
Goodson said. "We also had a
lot of help from various
sheriff's ., departments and
other agencies."
Goodson said investigators
moved into the area during
1983 and began making small
purchases of freshwater fish.
As they gained. the confi-
dence of the suspects, the
agents were able to penetrate
further and further into the
operation.
"There was some fine
police work in this case,"'
Goodsodn said. "We couldn't
be more proud of our investi-
gators."

the September ballot: "You
might be able to make
arrangements for the No-
vember ballot", he said.
Commissioner Bill Flem-
ing made a motion the City of
Ward Ridge hold a referen-
dum first, and if it passes, the
City of-Port St. Joe put the
question to local voters. "I'm
for it (annexation) but
there's no use for us to go the
expense of an election unless
the people of Ward Ridge
want to come in. I make a
motion we accept the request
if they vote in favor",
Fleming said. His motion
passed unanimously.
OTHER BUSINESS
In other business matters,
the Commission;
-Heard a suggestion from
Clerk Farris to invest surplus
funds in government bonds to
receive higher interest rates.
Farris said declining reve-
nue sources would make


additional revenue income
necessary during the next
budget year.
-Appointed Al Gay of 505
Garrison Avenue, as interim
building inspector for a per-
iod of six months to replace
Scot Stanley, who is moving
back to Orlando to be closer
to business interests there. I
-Agreed to consider nam-
ing the Washington High

David Jones, the last coach
at the school before it was
merged with Port St. Joe

-Decided to study bids for
replacing a garage building
at the water treatment plant
and the roof of Washington

ing their final approval. Both

In Grid Contest

Doug Robinson, who earned an All-State rating this
past school year for his abillities at end on the Sharks'
football team, opened a few eyes from around the state
last week end, as he participated in the Georgia-Florida
all-star football game held in the Citrus Bowl in Orlando.
Robinson played the entire game at right end for the
Florida squad and chalked up six tackles, two
quarterback sacks and seven assists for the night. The
tall end made the game interesting for the fans and
misery for opposing quarterbacks all season long in his
senior career for the Sharks.
The Florida squad defeated the Georgia team, 16-7 in
the all-star event.
Robinson was the first Port St. Joe product to
participate in the annual Georgia-Florida all-star game.
In the picture at right, taken from the Orlando
Sentinel, Robinson, (80) is shown sailing through the air,

27 Highway Deaths Expected by FHP


The Florida Highway Patrol predicts
that 27 people will lose their lives on Florida's
highways during the upcoming 78 hour
Independence Day holiday period which
begins at 6:00 p.m., July 3, and extends
through midnight Sunday, July 6.
"FHP Director, Col. Bobby R. Burkett
said, "Historically, we experience one
highway death every two hours and fifty
minutes which turns what was to have been a
festive weekend into many years of grief and


tragedy".
"If history holds true, over one-half of
these needless highway deaths will be
alcohol-related. Which is why the D.U.I.
issue remains the number one FHP
priority," Burkett added.
Every available trooper will be on patrol
duty throughout the State to help curb the
accident rate.
"I appeal to every motorist for support
during this dangerous period," said Burkett.


"I urge every one to take an active part in
traffic safety. Measures such as reporting
impaired drivers to your local police or
Highway Patrol, designated driver pro-
grams, and making the use of seat belts a
habit will go a long way in helping us reduce
the grim predictions each holiday period",
concluded Colonel Burkett.
Last year, there were 38 people killed
who were involved in 36 traffic accidents
during the July Fourth holiday period.


Beverly Strickland Heads Up CF Event


The Cystic Fibrosis Foun-

Mrs. Strickland joins hun-
dreds of other chairmen who


are heading up special events

Lisa Atkins Receives Award at Camp


Lisa Atkins returned home
Saturday after spending a
week at Camp Suwannee
Youth Camp with 175 other
young people from all over
Florida. During the week
Lisa enjoyed Bible classes,
i music, swimming and tubing


down the beautiful Suwannee
River .and lots of fun and
fellowship.
On Friday the campus
voted on the most outstand-
ing boy and girl and Friday
night an awards banquet was


held with trophies being
presented to the most athle-
tic boy and girl and the most
outstanding boy and girl.
Lisa was presented the tro-
phy for the most outstanding
girl at camp,
Lisa is the daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. Wesley Atkins.


Cystic fibrosis is the num-
ber one genetic killer of
children in this country. The
disease produces abnormal
amounts of mucus which clog
up the lungs and digestive
tract.,
At the present there is no
cure for the fatal disease.
Over half of the children who
suffer with it will not live
through their teen years.
Many will not even reach
their teen years and for those
who do, the outlook at the
present is bleak, Without a
cure there is no promise of


tomorrow for these children.
The money raised in the
Port St. Joe campaign will be
used to find this cure that
thousands of CF children and
their families hope for.
Money raised in events such
as the Bike-A-Thon has fund-
ed research that last fall
narrowed the search in the
cystic fibrosis gene down to
less than one tenth of one
percent of all the genes in the
body. This one advancement
has taken years off research
time and put us years closer
to a cure.

College Student Aid


Students that have re-
ceived financial aid eligibili-
ty papers for the fall 1986
semester should promptly
submit their papers, accord-
ing to Dan Smith, financial
aid coordinator at Gulf Coast
Community College. These
eligibility papers need exten-
sive processing, and may
require detailed documenta-
tion to validate students'
eligibility.
In many cases, correction
may be required, involving


tor. The other James and
Thaddaeus probably quali-
fied as manic-depressives,
and they were radically
opposed to civil authority.
In face the only member of
the group with a good busi-
ness head was a very re-
sourceful disciple by the
name of Judas.
Leadership problems con-
tinued after the Lord's cruci-
fixion. The squabbling got so
bad that in Acts 6:3 the
apostles set down the rule
that Church leaders should
be selected on the basis of
their known honesty and
spirituality.
Countless events in the
course of Church history
have continued to demon-
strate the fallibility of human
leadership. Apparently no
one has ever been thoroughly
prepared' and qualified to
lead the Church of God.
The great success of the
apostles and evangelists can-
not be credited to them
without first considering the
fact that God himself has
given them his Spirit and
authority. Great Christian
leaders are great because
they first humbled them-
selves and dedicated their
lives to Christ. They learned
to give up self-centered lives
in exchange for God-centered
lives.
Church leaders are select-
ed from a pool of inadequate
candidates. Those who ac-
complish great things in
God's kingdom are the ones
who learn that their unworth-
iness is their only qualifica-
tion. Having dqn this, they
can rely completely on God's
power and grace, instead of
personal strengths.
If you are a leader in God's
Church, pray for humility
and grace. If you are not such
a leader, pray for and
support those who are. If we
will all do this, our Church
leaders can do great things in
the name of the Lord.

sing concern for the antler-

answer in the minutes and
also any other elected offi-
cial's audit answer submit-
ted in Board agenda. A copy
of this reply is on file in the
Clerk's office.
Administrative Assistant
Wells reported the liability
and worker's compensation
insurance possibly needs the
scrutiny of the Board as
expenditures are more than
bid amounts approved by
Board. At the Chairman's
recommendation, Comm.
Birmingham moved the
Board prepare bid advertise-
ment for county insurance
and check to be sure the
county isn't paying any
amounts it doesn't owe. Wells
noted ,,windstorm coverage
was cited as being needed in
the audit report and also
required by Federal Emer-.

for receiving disaster aid
'monies in the future if a
disaster occurs. Comm.

and it passed unanimously.
There being no further

journed.

Give Lawn and Shrubs A Decent Drink of Water


By Roy Lee Carter
Extension Agent
Most homeowners are
faced with the decision of
whether to water their lawns
and shrubs or depend on
rainfall to do the job. Flor-
ida's normal rainfall avera-
ges over 50 inches per year
with about half of this falling
from June through Septem-
ber. During the dry winter
and spring, lack of rainfall
may be a serious problem.
Even during the rainy sea-
son, loss of water from plants
and the soil may be so great
that supplemental watering
is often necessary.
It is difficult to give
specific rules on watering
because when to water and
how much to apply depends
on the kinds of plants, type of
soil, time of year and wea-
ther conditions. However, the
following guidelines should
help in answering these two


CARTER
questions.
Water only when p

device or shovel to dig
in the soil to see if it is w
dry. If the soil in the root
feels very dry and crumr

quent light sprinklings waste
water and do little to quench
the thirst of a plant growing
in a hot, dry soil. This type of
watering often promotes a
shallow root system which
will be more susceptible to
damage if a few days of
watering are missed.
Allow the soil to become
wet to a depth of six to eight
inches. This type of watering
allows moisture to penetrate
into the soil where roots can
readily absorb it. The
amount of water plants
should receive is about V1
inches per week on sandy,
rapidly drained soil and one
inch per week on heavier
clay soil.
To determine when a
sprinkler has delivered on
inches of water, place cans or
cartons at intervals in the
spray pattern, and water
until the water, level in the
cans averages one inch.

The fast flowing water runs

it and exposing plants roots

watering can be accomplish-
ed with soaker hoses and
sprinklers. Soaker hoses do a
good job, but they don't cover
as large an area as sprink-
lers.
The water lance and the
ponding method are good
ways of watering trees and


shrubs. A water lance is a
sharp pointed tube attached
to a water hose which is used
to inject water near the root
system of a plant. The water
should be injected very slow-
ly because a strong stream
may dig sub-surface holes
