Plan Meets Approval



It'll Cost Gulf County $178,000 to Leap


Into the Modern World of Computers


The Gulf County Commis-
sion voted unanimously
Tuesday night to accept the
recommendation of a com-
mittee appointed nearly a


year ago to study the com-
puter needs of the county.
The committee, composed
of assistant clerk, Maurell
Cumbie; Property Appraiser


Kesley Colbert and Tax
Collector, Eda Ruth Taylor,
said their recommendations
would cost the county a total
of $178,000 to get into the


Bridge Named. for Tapper
The'Florida Department of Transportation came into the Port St. Joe area sometime
last week and erected this sign at the Highland View bridge, designating the bridge the
"George G. Tapper Bridge". The name designation was made by the 1986 session of the
Legislature in honor of the'former Senator and Representative.
A local group of citizens made a request that the new high rise bridge, scheduled to
begin construction late next year be named for the local civic leader. Apparently, the DOT
decided to put up the sign on the present bridge and move. it to the new bridge when it is
built. Tapper was a prime mover in getting the high rise bridge approved by DOT and was
instrumental in having the bridge designed so sea-going barges could have access to the
Gulf County Canal and the Intercoastal Waterway through Port St. Joe. The new bridge will
have a vertical clearance of 75 feet and a horizontal clearance of 125 feet.,

Ask for A Special Meeting


The City Commission
meeting, scheduled for Tues-
day, November 4, was post-
poned to Tuesday, November
11 late last week, when it was
learned that at least two of
the commissioners had to be
out of town on November 4.
The meeting wasn't cancel-
led, as is usually the case in
such instances but was re-
scheduled for a week later
because of the urgent matter
of appointing a member to


the board to replace Nathan
Peters, Jr., whose resigna-
tion becomes effective No-
vember 5. Peters will be
assuming his post as Gulf
County Commissioner in No-
vember and will be sworn
into his new office on No-
vember 18.
After the meeting of. next
Tuesday was postponed for a
week, Commissioners Emily
Roche and Peters, both sign-
ed a call for a special


meeting of the board to be
held on Monday of next week.:
Clerk Alden Farris said both:
Commissioners signed the-
call for the special meeting-
but would not disclose any:
special reason for calling the'
meeting.
The special meeting will be
held in the City Hall at 8:00"
p.m. Monday night, accord-'
ing to a legal notice published.
this week in The Star.


Nicky Mosconis was trapped in this overturned car in a ditch on Highway 98 last Friday,
when he lost control of the vehicle and went in a ditch.


Ambulance crew members work on Mosconis after
extricating him from his overturned car.


Apalachicola Man Injured In Accident Friday


An Apalachicola man was seriously injured
near Port St. Joe Friday of last week, when his
car overturned in a ditch adjacent to U.S.
Highway 98.
Nicky Mosconis of Apalachicola was travell-
ing toward PortSt. Joe just before noon, when he
pulled into the Ward Ridge cut-off, then went
around the traffic pattern, re-entered Highway


9b, and sped off toward Apalachicola again.
Just before his car reached the Forest Hill
Cemetery road, it went off the shoulder of the
road on the right. Mosconis apparently over-
corrected, causing the vehicle to cross Highway
98 and overturn in a deep ditch on the north side
of the highway.


Mosconis was removed from the overturned
automobile by Gulf County Ambulance crews,
given emergency treatment and rushed to Gulf
Pines Hospital in apparently serious condition.

Sheriff's Deputy Paul Surrey, who was at tme
scene of the accident, said the overturned car
was completely demolished.

Hunker Down with Kes




"Lucky" Sure Was


by Kesley Colbert-


The news spread. like'
wildfire about the city coun-
cil voting to legalize and tax
the gambling operation
Lucky Driscoll had going on
over in the back room of his
"Lucky Spot". Why, two
whole days passed and no
one even mentioned the
weather. Some folks in town
were allowing as how in a
couple of years we wouldn't
have to pay any taxes at all.
The city called in contrac-
tors to bid on the new school,
the addition to city hall, the
sewer system and they sent
for a brochure on fire trucks.
And most important of all,
they signed an agreement
with Mr. Galloway for two
and a half acres over by the
pajama factory we were
going to get a real baseball


field.
Mr. Driscoll himself show-
ed .p at the next council
meeting. I wasn't there but
word got around that Lucky
felt the city would make
more "off of him" if he fixed
his place up a little. "With
just a little renovation we
could really attract some
large numbers to the joint -
er, I mean casino."
He wanted the city to help
pay for the renovation. The
council was kinda against
that until Lucky explained
about all the new jobs an ex-
panded joint er, casino
would create. Since his
brother-in-law had recently
been laid off over at the pa-
jama factory, Councilman
Crocker felt that Lucky
might have a good idea


there. The Council voted to
use city money to fix up the
Lucky Spot.
No one ever found out ex-
actly how much money the
city spent on the joint er,
casino but Lucky added two
large rooms on each side,
fresh paint all around, paved
the parking lot and put up a
new flashing neon sign with
a heart shaped 0 in "spot"
and a pair of dice before and
after the "Lucky".
Lucky Driscoll traded his
old pick-up in for a brand
new Chevrolet Impala.
I didn't get to go to the
grand opening as I was about
fourteen years too young. As
we gathered out on the porch
after supper I asked my Dad
how long it would be before
the money started pouring


in. He likened to have fell off
the porch laughing. He said
"son, Lucky will be driving a


Cadillac before the month is
out. He's sharp. As for the ci-
ty they want something
for nothing, they expect the
pie in the sky it doesn't
work that way, son."
That night my mother
prayed the city would see the
error of its ways.
Trouble arose even before
the work started on the new
school. Lucky hired some
folks just like he said. He got
his new workers out of
Chicago or New Jersey or
someplace they didn't

the window of their candy store. As a
result, their candy store received the
most soaping of anyone.
The outhouse of Bob Laird's
barber shop should never have been
left unattended on Hallowe'en. It
always ended up smack in the middle
of main street, although we were all
very considerate and set it there in an
upright position.


WE DIDN'T MEAN any harm on
Hallowe'en. To 12 and 13 year old
boys, those things were just a lark.
There was no intention to harm
anyone or anything. Older people
were allowed to pass with their
property still intact after Hallowe'en.
But, you just let some sorehead decide
we weren't going to play any pranks
on him or his property, and he had
misery in store for him.
We didn't go out for the treats. We
just were selective as to who received
the brunt of our devious minds in
dreaming up proper Hallowe'en
tricks.

I HOPE NONE OF our kids gel
any ideas about the kind of tricks to
play tonight, from this list of those we
used a long time ago. I'm sure all of
you who grew up around WWII can
remember doing these same pranks
and many others of a similar nature.
Actually, the kids are probably
better off with the treats. Those tricks
were a lot of hard work and at
times resulted in a blistered rear end.


Lew Farris should have parked
his buggy in the barn overnight. If he
had, it wouldn't have wound up on top
of the barn, instead. But you know
what they say, 'hind sight is better
than foresight'.
If I had been Fred Windsaur, I
would have put those farm imple-
ments being repaired in his shop
behind a fence, a gate, or at least tied
them to a post. Instead, he had a hay
rake alongside Bob Laird's outhouse;
a plow on the Methodist Church porch
and a combine placed in a vacant lot
at the other end of town.
Bryant's Ice House should have
sold all their fire wood prior to
Hallowe'en night. If he had, the whole
load wouldn't have ended up in the
middle of the street. And if the school
had just taken the rope from off the
flag pole, chances are there wouldn't
have been a half dozen wire gates
pulled to the top and allowed to fall
down over the flagpole to the ground,
with the pole sticking up through the
middle of the wire gates.

i SHAD

PHANTRY
by Wendell Campbell




Let's Have A Meeting
IF I NEVER ATTEND another business meeting,
that will be too soon.
I can't prove it but I'll bet there are a lot of
companies that spend more money on meetings than
they do on trying to improve their products.
Shad said he worked for a company once that had
meetings to schedule meetings. It wasn't a question of
if there would be a meeting, but how many meetings
they would have in one day. Several times, he said, they
had meetings to arrange a meeting to set the time for
their next meeting.
I HAVE ATTENDED enough meetings, or
seminars as they are sometimes called, to last me and
twenty six other persons a lifetime. I have gone to
management meetings, leadership seminars, sales
meetings, budget meetings, incentive rallies, board
meetings, memory seminars and the most detestible of
all, Interaction Seminars. If you've never attended an
Interaction workshop, you've missed one of the dullest
times of your life. We should send all criminals to
Interaction workshops for three days; that would cut
the crime rate in half within a month.
The meetings I hate most are the ones they have in
big cities and last for three days. Invariably, they pack
a month's work into two and one half days. That's what
they tell you before the meeting begins and, sure
enough, it's true. They also expect you to comprehend
:and maintain every bit of the information, even if they
don't cover it. i
ALTHOUGH I DON'T smoke, I've inhaled enough
cigarette, cigar and pipe smoke to give Superman lung
cancer. If I wasn't seated next.to a chain smoker, there
was one across the table or row from me and the smoke
always seemed to find me, like a lost puppy to a warm
bowl of milk. And it doesn't matter how soft or
comfortable the chairs are in these meetings either;
they are never comfortable enough to keep your rear
from hurting for three days. After the first day they feel
like a piece of concrete.
MOST COMPANIES REALLY try but they do it all
wrong. After meeting all day in a smoke filled room,
they rush you to a cocktail party where you can drink
yourself into oblivion from the best whiskey, gin or
vodka. They then rush you to dinner where you are
served a seven course meal that would choke Elizabeth
Taylor. By this time it's about midnight and past most
people's bedtime. After dinner, however, they serve
you hot, strong coffee so you can be good and awake to
get back to the cocktail party and play poker.
After the poker.game, you just have time to get to
your room, shower and shave, get dressed and get to
breakfast. After breakfast you have to be alive and
alert for the all day meeting. Usually snoring is not
allowed. .
ALTHOUGH SHAD DOESN'T attend business
meetings these days, he is busy attending other
important meetings. Because of the many meetings he
attended while in the business world, he drank to excess
and now has to attend AA meetings once a week. The
heavy drinking caused him to overeat and he now goes
: to Wf'ghftWatahe rstwo -tmesa week." .. --
s- oroxrtae thbecame addicted to
cigarettes so he now attends a Stop Smoking class that
meets twice a week.
When he stopped drinking and smoking his buddies
started teasing him so that he was forced to take a class
in karate to protect himself. If meets three times per
week. The physical and mental trauma of all this has
forced him to seek medical help, so he now consults
with a psychiatrist two days a week.
ALL THINGS CONSIDERED, Shad concedes there
are three things certain; meetings, taxes and death.
His taxes have been paid but the way things are going,
Shad, will be in a meeting when he dies.

A motorist apparently nudged the fire
hydrant at the corner of Reid Avenue and
Fourth Street sometime Monday morning,
causing a flood at the intersection and
bringing the City's street crews into action
to replace the fire plug.
According to Police Chief Bob Maige,
there have been no indications as to who hit
the plug. "Actually, we aren't even sure it
was hit by a car. If it was, the driver may
not even know he or she hit it." Maige said


City Street Superintendent Martin Adkison
said the plug had apparently been hit
several times in years past, as the plug has
been leaning for some time.
Crews replaced the plug Monday
afternoon and had it back in operation
before the day was over.
In the photo above, Theodore Taylor and
Bobby Fields probe for the source of the leak
before they move the back hoe in for
digging.

Despite intermittent rain showers all day Saturday, Port St. Joe Elementary School's
annual Halloween Carnival proved to be a success, making approximately $1,700 profit for the
PTA to spend on various projects needed at the school. The parade down Reid Avenue was
ready to proceed at 10:00, the sirens were blowing and the participants were ready to march off
down the street when the first heavy shower of the day postponed the parade until the deluge
Shad ended.
Shown in the accompanying photographs are the winners of the costume contest, slightly
damp, maybe with their makeup running, but proud winners nevertheless.

UNDERSTANDING
CORRECTIVE LENSES
The job of a lens is to cor-
rect imperfect vision. It is
made of either impact resis-
tant glass or durable plastic.
Both materials have the
:capability to refract (bend)
light rays. The lens must be
free' of air bubbles or other
distortions, and meet exact-
ing specifications prescribed
i by your optometrist. As the
power of the lens increases,
,so does its thickness.
: There are basically three
`,types of lenses, or a combin-
ation of those types:
Convex-This lens is thick-
er in the center than at the
Sedges and gathers light rays
towards a point. It is pre-
scribed for farsighted or
presbyopic eyes that cannot
bend light rays as much as
They should.
Concave-This lens is thin-
ner at the center than at the
edges. It spreads light apart
as that light enters the eye,
and puts a clearly focused
image on the, retina. This
type of lens is prescribed to
correct nearsighted eyes.
Cylindrical-This lens is
curved more in one direction
than the others. It is pre-
scribed to correct astig-
matism.
Very often a cylinder is
ground into a convex or con-
cave lens, for many patients
have some astigmatism as
well as being nearsighted or,
farsighted.

Possibly sensing some
sign of doubt on this

that Johnny Jernigan of Pen-

Colorado were both eye
witnesses to the shooting and
Edward Hill and another red

were close by.
Presnell said over the

moose, and three mule deer
with his .243 pea-shooter and
that this was just an exam-

Port St. Joe's Sharks felt
much like the Boston Red Sox
last Friday night. The Sharks
had the game won in over-
time, when lightning struck,
giving Pensacola Catholic a
one point victory in the
Sharks' homecoming game.
The crusaders and the
Sharks were tied, 17-17 when
the regulation time was over,
and scored on the first play of
overtime to .take a seven
point lead over Pensacola.
But, in a penalty-plagued
series of downs, the Crusa-
ders managed to push the
ball over the goal line and
ran for the two point conver-
sion to give them a one point
win.

ing up a perfect record for
the final game of the season
to make the closing contest
probably one of the most
interesting in the Panhandle
on November 21.
Friday night, the Gators
rode the air waves twice for
touchdowns, as the combina-
tion of Billy Joe Smiley to
David Paul worked for the
two scores. The Gator de-
fense came in for some
scoring, too, as they forced a
safety in the first period and
Berry Eubanks blocked a
Jacket punt in the end zone
and covered the loose ball for
the final Gator TD of the
game.

scores.
Williams was the leading

Friday night, as they put the
first points on the board.
With a little more than two
minutes remaining in the
first period, Mike Byrd came
barreling up the middle on a
nine yard dash to score for
the Sharks, Joe Norton put
the first of three extra point
kicks for the night through
the uprights and the Sharks
had a seven point lead.
The Crusaders didn't let
that lead stand for very long.
On the very first play of the
second period, they sent
Michael Brown around the
end on an 18 yard jaunt to
score. Brad Lindsey kicked
the extra point and the score
was tied.
The Sharks struck back
like lightning, breaking Mike
Byrd loose up the middle
-with the kick-off, and Byrd
galloped 85 yards up the field
to score on the run-back.
Norton's kick put the Sharks
up by a 14-7 score.
The Crusaders edged clos-
er mid-way in the second
period with a 19 yard field
goal. The Crusaders were
threatening to take a first
half lead as the period was
winding down, but the charg-
ing Shark line forced a
fumble on the Shark 23 yard
line and Leonard Ray fell on


the ball.
The Sharks fumbled on the
first play of the second half
and the Crusaders took over
on the Shark 32. Five plays
later, Bart Pair dove over
from the three yard line to
give Pensacola a 17-14 lead.
The Sharks were driving
late in the quarter, but
stalled on the Crusader 20
yard line. Joe Norton lined up
for a field goal attempt, and
put the ball through the
uprights to tie the score.
Both teams put up stiff
defenses for the entire last
period and not a fan left his
seat, as the contest edged
closer to the end of regulation
time with a tied score.
The Sharks had the ball
first in overtime and, on the
first play, sent Mike Byrd
zooming into the end zone
with a TD. Norton kicked the
extra point and Shark fans
went wild with the seven
point lead.
The Crusaders then took
their turn at overtime and
sent Brown into the end zone
with a score on the second
play. A clipping penalty
called the play back, moving
the ball to the 17 yard line.
Then a Shark grabbed a face

Motor Club's safety director,
attributes most of this de-
crease in usage to the
motorists' awareness that
they cannot be issued a ticket
for violation of the statute
until January 1, 1987. Accord-
ing to Bakewell, only warn-
ings can be issued now and
only after the beginning of
the year will $20 fines be
imposed on violators.
The survey was conducted
by AAA state-wide at more
than 100 locations in 16
counties. Of the 26,225 obser-
vations made, women were
wearing belts more often
than men with 46 percent of
the ladies wearing belts and
only 37 percent of the men:
buckling up. Front seat driv-
ers (41.6 percent) wore re-
straints more often than did
passengers (36.1 percent) in
the vehicles. The highest seat
belt user rate was found in
Tallahassee with 47.7 percent
usage. The lowest was in
Ocala at 28.9 percent. Ocala
is also the only area in the
state where drivers and
passengers are buckling up
less frequently now than
before the effective date of
the, law. The only area of the
state where usage increased
since July 1 was in Jackson-
ville where usage rose from
39.6 percent to 41.9 percent.
The results of this AAA
survey are being forwarded
to Florida State University
for extensive statistical and
scientific study. AAA and the
Florida Bureau of Public
Safety Management will use
these studies to target future
educational efforts in an
attempt to increase usage.
While Kevin Bakewell of
AAA expressed disappoint-
ment with the overall usage,
he feels that more people will
use seat belts after January
1. According to Bakewell,
"It's unfortunate that the
state will have to resort to

from the 28.7 percent before
'1 seat belt law went to

have a chance of attaining 60
percent usage by the begin-
ning of 1987."
The methodology for the
AAA observational survey
was adapted by Florida State


of Highway Safety and Motor
Vehicles. Observational sur-
veys are desirable because
they are a direct measure-
ment of occupant protection

State's Attorney Jim Ap-
pleman described Atlantic
City, New Jersey as-"eight
Taj Mahals surrounded by a
war zone" in comparing
what Atlantic City was and
what casino gambling has
made it over the past eight
years. Appleman also said
every man, woman and child
in the state of Florida would
have to purchase $97.00
worth of lottery tickets each
year for it to pay off the
dividends supporters claim it
will pay the state. Appleman
was opposed to both the
casino gambling and the
lottery amendments on the
general election ballot next
Tuesday.
Appleman was speaking to
the Port St. Joe Rotary
Club when he explained some
of the reasons supporters are
giving to promote passage of
the amendments, then gave
reasons why they should be
defeated.
The speaker pointed out
the claim the casino gamb-
ling question would, be a local
option proposition. "It will be
up to each individual county
Sto approve whether or not the


casinos are allowed to oper-
ate in their confines. In order
to give approval, a county
must have a hotel which has
at least 500 rooms to rent
before it is eligible to put the
casinos in.
"But, the added local crim-
inal activity would cost the
county more than they would
receive in revenues from
casino operations", he said.
He pointed out that casinos
pay their own way in Atlantic

ling", he said.
As far as what casino
gambling has brought to
Reno, Nevada, Appleman
said Reno has the highest
crime rate per capital of any
other city in the nation.
As for a state operated
lottery, he conceded it has
never been proven that the
crime syndicate element has
penetrated any state lottery
system.
"Still", he pointed out, "It
isn't spelled out that the
schools will receive the sup-
posed $300 million "profits"
from the lottery operation
each and every year". Ac-
tually, the lottery money, if it
goes to the schools, will
probably replace money
from other sources rather
than be a new source." Ap-
pleman pointed out that
every state which has adopt-
ed lottery for tax relief, has
experienced a tax increase
within three years.
"Actually, supposing the
schools do get their estimat-
ed $300 million each year;
this is only five percent of the
school budget which is being
raised by a very inefficient
source of revenue. It will be
taken from people who can.
least afford it", he said.
He pointed out that it's
true, Florida already has
some gambling; horse and
dog racing, jai alai-and all
together they bring in only
$125 million to the state
budget".


Appleman used as his
reasons for opposing lottery
operations in Florida, the
fact it would take nearly $100
from every citizen of Florida
to come up with the estimat-
ed $300 million benefits, the
poor will do the playing and

paying, there is no guarantee
where the benefits will go
and there will be no tax
relief, as his basis for oppos-.

The Governor and Cabinet
unanimously approved :a
Florida Marine Fisheries
Commission Rule that will
establish new laws to man-
age and protect the state's
Spanish mackerel resources.

The new rules will take effect
October 30, and are designed
to decrease catch and fishing
effort for Spanish mackerel,
beginning this season, by 45
percent and to increase the
size of fish harvested by
commercial fishermen to -
17-18 inches in orddr to
restore the fishery to its past
abundance. Prior to final
approval the rule was chal-
lenged by commercial fish-
ing interests. It was success-
fully defended by the Com-
mission staff with the cooper-
ation and support of the
Florida Conservation Asso-
ciation.
Commission Executive Di-
rector J. Connor Davis said,
"This rule is a major step
toward restoring the Spanish
mackerel resource. The un-
animous decision by the
Governor and Cabinet repre-
sents a strong vote of confi-
dence in the Commission
system and the Commis-
sion's conservation philoso-
phy. We appreciate the sup-
port provided by Florida
Conservation Association,
Audubon Society and other
conservation groups."
Among major components
of the rule are a prohibition
of fishing by large roller rig
gill net boats during the .arly
part of the fishing season
(November 1 through. De-
cember 15), minimum, mesh
sizes in gill nets, a prohibi-
tion on weekend commercial
net fishing, and a recreation-
al daily bag limit of four fish
per person. The current 12
inches minimum size "limit
and Dade-Palm Beach oun-
ties closure to power assisted
net gear will be retained. A
total season commercial
catch limit statewide of
3.716,000 pounds is also inclu-
ded in the rule, with 1,869,000
pounds allocated for the east
coast, 1,501.000 pounds for
the southwest coast, and
346,000 pounds for the pan-
handle, with certain bycatch
allowances and exclusions.
Ten percent of the quota in
each area is reserved for
small scale commercial fish-
ermen.
Copies of the new regula-
tions for harvesting Spanish
mackerel may be obtained
by writing or phoning the
Commission office in Talla-
hassee.
