Marker Unveiled to




Honor War Dead



Dedicated In Veterans' Day Ceremony


A fly-over of Air Force jets
split a moment of silence at
the eleventh hour, of the
eleventh day of the eleventh
month here in Port St. Joe, as
a large crowd of spectators
and participants marked the
hour of Armistice Day un-
veiling a marble monument
to Gulf -County's war dead
Tuesday morning.
The monument, located in


front of the Gulf County
Courthouse, bears the names
of Gulf County men who have
died in wars since 1940, and
includes the name of Clifford
Sims, the county's only Con-
gressional Medal of Honor
winner. Sims was killed in
the Vietnam war as he threw
his body on a grenade to save
his squad from death.
What was designated Ar-


mistice Day on that famous
eleventh hour of the eleventh
day of the eleventh month in
1918, has since been changed
to Veterans Day and is
becoming an increasingly
important day to pause and
reflect on the past.
The monument, unveiled
Tuesday morning, is the
product of the persistence of

Replacing A 'Dinosaur'

Only Bridge of Its Kind In State


Overstreet Bridge, a one-
lane, floating swing-span
drawbridge on State Road
386 in Gulf County, repre-
sents the end of an era.
The bridge, built in 1952 by
State Road Department for-
ces, is the last of its kind in
the Florida Panhandle, as
well as tie state, according
to Bill Alford, head of DOT's
bridge inspection crew based
in DeFuniak Springs.
Work on the $6.1 million
replacement of the Over-
street Bridge starts this week
and sometime late in 1988 the
"dinosaur" of Florida brid-
ges will be a memory.
"It was custom-built by our
own people," said Alford,
who was part of the original
crew that built the bridge 34
years ago. "Things are done
quite a bit different today,"
he added.
The replacement Over-
street Bridge will be a
concrete two lane-highrise
structure that will eliminate
delays presently experienced
while motorists wait' for
marine traffic to pass on the
Intracoastal Waterway.
The new bridge will be
built to the south of the
existing bridge and will have
a 65 foot vertical clearance,
which meets U.S. Coast
Guard requirements.
The new bridge will be
1,014 feet long and 40 feet
wide. The existing bridge is
256 feet long and includes a 90
foot long floating barge.
The contractor, Fairchild-
Florida Construction of Mon-
ticello, has 640 days to


complete the work.
The existing bridge will
remain open during con-


struction and detour routes
at the approaches will be
constructed.


Jim Sealey and the contribu-
tions of citizens, industry,
civic organizations and some
local government contribu-
tions in Gulf County. The
marker is still not quite
complete, but was unveiled
Tuesday by Mrs. Ometa
Osborne, who represented
peacetime service personnel,
now serving in the earned
forces. Mrs. Osborne's son is
one of those young men,
Sealey said the eagle would
be affixed to the top of the
pentagon shaped marker
within a few months. The
monument also features a
tablet railing behind the
marker which bears the
names of the soldiers killed
in action during the wars
since World War II. Gulf
County was not a county
when Armistice Day was
founded following World War
I.
After the unveiling, Gloria
McMullon, sister of John C.
Gainous, a victim of -the
Vietnam war and Mrs. Daisy
Furr, of Wewahitchka, who
lost a son to World War II,
laid a wreath of flowers on
the monument following the
unveiling.
A crowd of people lined the
parking area in front of the
Courthouse to witness the
unveiling and hear brief
remarks by County Commis-
sioner Eldridge Money and
..Lt. .Col. Frederick _Dello L
Tyndall Air Force Base.
The crowd was standing in
silent meditation as the four
Tyndall jets roared overhead
in tight formation in a
fly-over timed to cooincide
with the signing of the
original armistice document.



Bulletin
Department of Trans-
portation spokesmen cal-
led the Gulf County Sher-
iff's office Wednesday
morning, advising that the
Overstreet bridge would be
closed to land traffic from
2:00 p.m. Wednesday to
noon Friday because of a
malfunction of some part
of the machinery on float-
ing draw span. Vehicular
traffic is advised to look
for other routes.


People gathered around a marble tablet after
dedication ceremonies Tuesday to look for the names of


relatives and loved ones who had been killed in war and
had their names included on the tablet.


E.G. Williams Appointed


High School Principal Will Finish Out

Two Year Term On the City Commission


Port St. Joe High School
Principal, Edwin Williams
was appointed without oppo-
sition Tuesday night, to serve
out the unexpired vacancy
which has. developed on the
City Commission with the
Resignation of Commissioner
1alanii'PetLrs, Jr
Williams was suggested as
a replacement for Peters by
Mayor .' Frank Pate, who
described the veteran school
administrator as being a
civic and public minded
person "who will be fair and
impartial in his dealings. He
will make all of Port St. Joe a
good Commissioner".
Pate said he had contacted
Williams, who was not pres-
ent at Tuesday's meeting,
and learned of his willingness
to serve out the uncompleted
term which runs until June of
1987.
"He told me he would
accept the appointment if it
is offered", Pate said.
Commissioner Bill Flem-
ing made the motion to
accept Pate's proposal, Com-
missioner James B. Roberts
seconded the motion and
there were no expressions of

Fish!

Firm Utilizes Part

of Raffield Facility

Mike Crocker holds the first of packaged
seafood which came rolling off some newly installed
processing equipment at Raffield Fisheries Monday
of this week, as his firm started testing the new
equipment which has been installed in a portion of
Raffield's new freezer building and a portion of the
Raffield processing building.
The firm is a tenant of the Raffield complex,
whose main thrust is preparation of seafood into
pan-ready portions and preparation.
The packaging machinery was cranked up
Monday with a run of 250,000 pounds of flounder
which were imported from Argentina. Initially, the
firm will specialize mostly in flounder, sea trout,
and whiting under the brand name of "Virginia
Cape".
Although you can't tell it from this small
picture, Crocker is standing inside a huge freezer at
Raffield's -with the 250,000 pounds of flounder
tucked into a corner behind him. The freezer will
hold some 7i/2 million pounds of seafood in sub-zero
temperatures.
Only two processing lines were in operation for
the test run Monday, but already, it takes some 30
people to operate the packing department.
Raffield said the new tenant in his complex
gives the local firm more utilization of their
extensive freezer capacities and provides steadier
employment for the Raffield crews, part of which
formerly worked part time.


dience or the Commission.
Williams will assume his
new duties at Tuesday's
meeting of the Board.
The Concerned Christians
Society had been prepared to
enter the names of Oscar
- Jones, .Ernest Jones_...and.,
Robert Wilson as .possible
replacements for Peters, but
Pate's suggestion was ac-
cepted unanimously before
the other names were made
public.
Peters then asked for the

floor and expressed his ap-
preciation for the coopera-
tion he had received from the
Street Department employ-
ees during his time in office
and thanked the City Hall
staff for their cooperation
during his 16 months in
office,, which he termed,
"The most important of my
life".
ORDINANCE PASSED
The Commission gave its
final approval to a new
garbage and trash collection
ordinance, which raises rates
for the service, an average of
$1.00 per month for residen-
tial customers and contains a
graduated scale of increases
for commercial customers.
The new ordinance took
effect immediately upon its
approval and garbage collec-
tion customers will probably
see the increase in charges in
their December billing.
MERGER ORDINANCE
The Board also took their
first legal step in annexing
the area of Ward Ridge into
the City of Port St. Joe. Ward
Ridge residents voted on
October 21 to ask for admis-
sion to Port St. Joe's bpun-
daries and now Port St. Joe
citizens will vote on Decem-
ber 9 on whether or not to
accept the small city.
Action taken Tuesday night
would merge the two adjoin-
ing cities on January 6 if the
merger is approved.
GRANT MONEY
Julian Webb, a Chipley
grants writer is still hopeful
of securing a grant of gov-
ernment funds for Port St.
Joe and was present Tuesday
night, asking the City to have
their engineers update their
drainage program and then
apply for the funds to do it
with.
Webb indicated that where
the process has worked on a
fee paid for grants received
in the past, the City will
probably have to come up
with a little seed money in
order to go through the
procedure now.
Mayor Pate delayed giving
Webb an answer until the
Commission could meet with
their engineers, Smith and

Two Die


In Water Related

Events on Peninsula

Two water related fatalities were reported in the
St. Joseph Peninsula area during the past week,
claiming the lives of two northwest Florida men; one
from Chipley and one from Quincy.
According to Sheriff Al Harrison, Douglas Clyde
Birge, 48, of Chipley, apparently drowned in the Gulf of
Mexico last Wednesday night, as he was wading about
in waist-deep water in the Gulf.
Sheriff Harrison said witnesses stated Birge and
his wife were walking on the beach, after dark in the St.
Joseph State Park vicinity. They were staying at the
park camp grounds at the time of the accident.
Birge's wife said he went into the edge of the surf to
splash around, carrying a flashlight. After a few
minutes, she heard him shout a couple of times and the
light from the flashlight went out.
Mrs. Birge came back to the campground to get
help at about 10.00 p.m. After a search of the beach of
approximately an hour and a half, park manager,
James Mock and assistant manager John Mize found
Birge's body floating in the surf about three quarters of
a mile from the camp area.
Birge's body was taken to the Medical Examiner's
office in Panama City to determine actual cause of
death, but no results had been released by press time
I Wednesday.
A SECOND DEATH
A second death on the Peninsula occurred almost in
the same vicinity Saturday evening, when James J.
Higdon, 40, of Quincy, apparently suffered a heart
attack and died in the Barrier Dunes swimming pool.
The Sheriff said Higdon had been jogging along the
beach with friends, returning to Barrier Dunes at dark.
Higdon then got into the swimming pool to cool off. He
started complaining of chest pains and collapsed in the
pool.
Higdon was pronounced dead at the pool and was
taken to the Medical Examiner's office in Panama City
where it was determined he had died of a heart attack.

We haven't heard much from
our band lately. Director Lamar
Weathermon says the band is in a
rebuilding cycle, accounting for the
smallness in number this year.
"We just don't have a lot of fluff in
our band this year. Everyone out
there is playing an instrument
rather than just filling in a
marching spot", he says.
Lamar must be right, on in his
assessment of our band this year,
because they went off to Panama
City recently and came home with
the second highest rating they give
out at those contests. They must be
doing something right.


i:


Our band has been sort of in the
doldrums for the past few years,
and it appears if Weathermon may
be successful in making it a
respectable unit once more.
As an old band member,
ourself, we appreciate a fine band
and feel even those who don't know
a C sharp from a D flat know when
our band is making a pleasing
sound and it makes them all proud
of our band and our community.
There's nothing we like better
than seeing things improve and run
smoothly in our community and
we're glad the band is joining these
ranks.

How Come Her Vote


Counts More Than Mine?


It may not be the finest
monument in the world. There are
i monuments in almost every court-
house square in Georgia which
' might be more imposing. There are
other markers which are far more
: gaudy than is ours here in Gulf
, County. There might even be a few
which are made of more lasting
material than ours.
But the one unveiled here
Tuesday was paid for by donations
of citizens. There was no under-
writing of the project by a rich
: philanthropist or two; no govern-
ments opened their bottomless
purse and let the promoters of the
memorial dig in with both hands to
truly build a "monument" to those
who designed and constructed the
memorial. The one, here in Gulf
County represents the dollars and
the pennies of the people of Gulf
County.
We can truly say the monu-
ment is much like a kid bringing

The champion pie baker, a

a personal expression of our
feelings for what our fellow citizens
have done for us in years past. It
isn't just something we bought or
picked up in a fire sale.
This isn't to say the monument
looks tacky or unprofessionally
done. It's far from that. As a
matter of fact, it's a handsome
expression of the appreciation we
have for our war heroes. But, let's
face it. It isn't one of your million
dollar productions, either.
Our wife still has some of those
hand-made valentines our children
made when they were young. All
the store-bought ones have long
since been thrown away.

because it was something we did

body do for us.

having to go to work to help pay for
that home. Too, in this day of the
frozen pie shell and even the entire
frozen pie, it's hard to find a
homemaker who has the time any
more to make a pie from scratch.
It might be like the pat of
butter we had the other day which'
had been made in the old fashioned
way. The butter started out as
cream and with a little judicious
whipping and churning, it was now
butter. We have eaten the artificial
and mass produced article for so
long, the real thing actually tasted
funny.
Still, it's heartening to see so
much attention being still paid to
baking a good pie-good enough to
become the national champion .
even if it was lemon.
A winning sweet potato pie or
pecan pie might have been more
appropriate as a winner from down
here in the southern part of our
nation.

Curtis Lane and I were up in
Wartrace, Tennessee a-here-
while-back and ran across
this old, original outdoor
toilet. It was a three seater
and despite the wear and
tear it was still in pretty
good shape. We spent most
of a day disassembling that
thing so we could get it in the


back of the truck. We num-
bered each board so we
couldn't mess up when we
went to reassemble it in my
living room. Now I didn't in-
tend for the little shack to be
functional but I thought with
just a little adapting it would
be a great place to sit and
watch T.V.

Attending A Billy Graham Crusade Is Definitely ADifferent Experience


IT WAS A DIFFERENT experi-
ence: one I had never been through
before.
It was considerably different than
watching the same program on
televisjoh. It was more different than
seeing a college football game on
television and being there in person.
I went to Tallahassee last Thurs-
day afternoon, along with a bus load of
fellow members of the Long Avenue
Baptist Church, to attend the Billy
Graham Crusade in Tallahassee's
Civic Center.
I guess I have seen Billy Graham
telecasts from about everywhere he
has televised a crusade. You can sort
of sense the excitement and the
emotion being generated at the
crusades through the televised ver-
sions.
They're nothing like being there.
Most of the crusades are held in
giant stadiums or auditoriums, with
crowds of people gathering to hear the
man who has become America's
favorite evangelist, speak.
And, believe me; they come in
numbers you couldn't believe unless


you were actually there.

THE CIVIC CENTER was literal-
ly crowded to the rafters Thursday
night. I don't believe there was an

empty seat in the building. As a

were over in another building, watch-

hold .. that's how many were there.


choir, and that was a fine place to be
when they started singing their
anthem of the night.
Governor Bob Graham was at the
crusade Thursday night, and spoke
briefly after a standing ovation of
greeting.
They must like Bob Graham in
Tallahassee.
They like Jake Gaither, too.
Gaither, a favorite with all Floridians,


yourself and follow the moral rules
are still popular ways of living in our
state. It was a satisfying sight and
sound to see the greetings given these
three most visible examples of
exercising your talents, obeying the
law and following God's law, as they
made their entrance on the podium
Thursday night.
It was plain they are popular.


A YOUNG MAN BY the name of
Steve Green did one of the most
superb jobs of solo work I have ever
heard. and I have heard my share.
Green sang two of the modern
songs I have never heard before, but
he came over as a favorite of the
audience, as it was clear he was
singing of God's love. Somehow, you
can tell the difference when a person
just says or sings the words and when
he really means them.
Really, after Green, Governor
Graham and an inspiring talk by
Nelson Townsend, director of athle-
tics at Florida A&M University,'
evangelist Billy Graham was almost
an anti-climax.
It was the first time I had ever
been to a Billy Graham crusade. I
have been attending church all my
life. I have participated in numerous
revival meetings, and even had
charge of the music program in
several during the 25 years I led the
music program on a volunteer basis
for Long Avenue Baptist Church here
in Port St. Joe. In spite of all that
experience and participation, I had


never seen anything like the Billy
Graham Crusade in Tallahassee
Thursday night.
Even in Brazil, where my wife
and I, along with four other couples
from our church, visited an area-wide
revival emphasis, we never saw a
responsive crowd such as was in
Tallahassee Thursday night.
Even with so much on the
program, the singing started at 7:30
and it was over by a few minutes after
9:00. There were no dead spots and
there were no awkward pauses.
I GUESS MY FAVORITE part of
the entire night was George Beverly
Shea. If I ever envied any man of his
place and talent in life, I envy George
Beverly Shea.
He has to be at least 70 years of
age, and his tone still rolls out strong,
clear and on key, He is an amazing
man with a voice which would put
Bing Crosby to shame.
Even after getting home at nearly
midnight Thursday, the trip to the
Crusade was worth the effort and the
time.

I couldn't wait to get
home. I finally have an op-
portunity to pick up some-
thing for the house that even
my wife would be proud of.
Cathy's brother and sisters,
all of them, are coming for
Thanksgiving and naturally
we've had to enlarge the
house to accommodate


everyone. We've been add-
ing on for about a year now.
As the new room went up
I've been on the lookout for
something "extra" to kind'a
set the room off. I believe
I've found it.
Now, this is not like the
last time I decided to "pick
up" something for the house.


We were just a little south
of Montgomery when Curtis
asked, "Reckin' what Miss
Cathy is going to say?"
"Oh, she'll be a little sur-
prised but she'll get used to
it."
We got home about two in
the morning After dropping
Curtis off I backed right up
to the side door so I would be
ready to unload first thing in
the morning.
Cathy woke up when I
came in. She asked about the
trip. I was like a five year old
with a secret. I couldn't wait
for morning. "Get up, I've
got a surprise for you."
.It's two-thirty in the morn-
ing, Cathy's in her night-
gown, I'm a'shining the,
flashlight over the boards so
she can see it's a real three-
seater. "What do you
think?"
"What is it?"
"It's an original, genuine,
almost in mint condition,
three hole outhouse."
Have you ever seen
anyone surprised and appall-
ed at the same time? I told
her we could put it where the
couch is we can hang a
Sears Roebuck catalog on
the wall. It will be a great
conversation piece.
I thought she was a'going
to faint. She leaned back
against the porch wall and
said, "Don't you dare take
one board of that thing into
my house. Don't even take it
off of the truck. The conver-
sation on your conversation
piece is over!"
Boy howdy, this time it
was going to be different.
She was going to like my lat-
est "find". I fairly skipped
into the house. "Cathy, guess
what, I've found the perfect
thing for our new room."
She said, "I think I'd bet-
ter sit down."
I began to explain how
lucky I was- that I'd run in-
to my good friend Rex
Buzzett and he had this origi-
nal, genuine, almost in mint
condition soda fountain that
he was willing to near about
give to me. Just think of the
chocolate sodas, the pine-
apple sundaes, real cherry
cokes, malts of every kind..
"Well, it's kind'a big see-
ing as how theieounter and
stools come with it. We can
knock out the back wall of |
the new room." I went on to
explain that it reminds me of
the old days back at the City
Drugs. We used to climb up
in those stools, just to watch
Mr. Cannon mix up a shake.
It would be a graet conver-
sation piece. I shouldn't
a'said that.
She never said a word. She
just went back to cooking.
The next morning as she was
getting the boys ready for
school I reminded her that
we needed to make a deci-
sion on the soda fountain.
She got the boys loaded up
and left without a word.
We didn't get the soda
fountain. I ran into Rex a
couple of days ago. He asked
me why Cathy wasn't speak-
ing to him.
Respectfully,
Kesley

A Vacation Inn
ACCORDING TO THE advertising flyer I received
a few days ago, there is a new chain. of motels opening
soon. The chain is called, "Vacation Inn."
They would open this unusual chain of motels just
after I have decided to stop traveling extensively. I
have always felt that I have been "a day late and two
bucks short," but I have really missed the taxi by not
traveling this time.
The information I received didn't give the opening
date for the chain but it did give some other, pertinent
information that I thought might be of use to some of
you in the event you plan a trip in the near future. If you
are inclined to take chances, you might want to stay in

HEADACHES
''A recent professional
study indicates that 50 per-
e ht of the patients who seek
optometric care suffer from
headaches. Many are the
result of eye strain. To deter-
mine whether your head-
aches are caused by stress
while seeing, poor visual
skills, or routine uncorrected
vision, make sure that the
doctor is aware of when the
headaches begin, where the
pain is, the frequency of the
headaches and how long they
last, and any warning
signals that a headache is
about to begin. Are your
headaches precipitated by:
alcohol, exercise, reading or
driving, sunlight? Are you
taking medication? Have
you been injured recently?
If your headaches are vi-
sion-related, often a change
of prescription-a first pair
of glasses or sunglasses-for
specific seeing tasks will
stop the headaches. If your
optometrist finds that your
headaches are not vision-
related, you will be referred
for further testing by the ap-
propriate professional.

Myers chewing up the most
yardage. The drive was
interrupted by only one pass
play to David Paul for an
eight yard gain.
After 10 plays, Roy Myers
pumped it in from four yards
out. David Groom lined up to
attempt the extra point, but
the snap was a little low and
Billy Joe Smiley couldn't find
the handle. Smiley then
scooped up the ball and came
looping around right end to
score two extra points for the
Gators.
Still, no Gator fans were
worried, but as the game
progressed, those two points,
made on an error, began to
look bigger and bigger.
With game time running
out in the final period, it
appeared as if the Gators
would have to settle for that
one point margin as a
victory. The Gator defense


then dug in and after the
Bulldogs started from their
own 14 and were helped to the
26 by a Gator holding penal-
ty. But that was about all
they would allow.
After the Bulldogs punted,
and the ball took a Bulldog
roll, the Gators wound up on
their own six yard line with
less than two minutes left in
the game.
It looked as if the Gator
l4ck was going to turn when
Roy Myers got one hand on a
pitch-out and hauled it in for
a 12 yard gain. A late hit by
the Bulldogs put the Gators
on their own 37.
But then disaster struck.
Two straight illegal proce-
dure calls put the Gators in a
hole they couldn't pull out of
and when David Groom lined

up to punt in the dense fog,
the ball sailed over his head
and in the scramble for
possession, the Bulldogs
came up with it on the Gator
20.
Peddle went to Brannon
with a pass to the Gator four,
but the Gator defense would
allow them to get no closer,
so, on fourth down, Brannon
lined up for the kick which
broke the Gators' win streak.
The fog rolled in at about
half time and became pro-
gressively worse as the con-
test progressed. By the mid-
dle of the last period, it was
impossible for fans in the
bleachers to see across the
field.
The Gators won the statis-
tic battle and John Myers led
all runners with his 78 yards

on 13 carries. Smiley con-
nected on two of four passes
and had only one intercep-
tion. But it was the penalties
which stopped Gator drives
and kept Bulldog drives
going, time after time.
The Gators will not take to
the field Friday night, but
you can bet they will be busy
getting ready for the FAMU
game which will complete
their scheduled season in
Tallahassee, Friday of next
week.

ed the end of the oldest drug
' store in Port St. Joe.
St. Joe Drug had been in
operation in Port St. Joe, by
various owners, for at least
62 years. It was purchased by
Buzzett's Drug Store recent-
ly, and was closed down last
week, with the assets and
operation moved to the Buz-
zett building on Williams
Avenue.
Aside from St. Joe Hard-
ware and Costin's Depart-
ment Store, St. Joe Drug is
probably the oldest business
still in operation in the city.
According to old timers,
the drug store was establish-
ed about 1925, when 0. M.
"Doc" Morton opened the
business in a wooden frame
building at about the location
of the present Hannon Insur-
ance Agency.
One of the favorite activi-
ties of the old Morton Drug
Store was that on Saturdays,
they broke out the hand
cranked ice cream freezers
and made ice cream and put
it on sale. That was a treat in
those days, and the Saturday
ice cream making was eager-
ly anticipated by the store's
customers-which was prob-
ably. everyone in the small
fishing village at that time.
Later on, Morton sold the
business to Stetson Pridgeon,
who operated it for a number
of years, building the present
building occupied by St. Joe
Drugs and moved the popu-
lar gathering place across
the street from its former
location.
A few years later, the
business was sold to the

Rotarians
Plan New
Year's Ball
Rotarians of the local club
are currently at work mak-
ing plans for a New Year's
Eve ball this year, which will
'feature the tig Band"s-yle
of years past, according to
Pete Rosasco, chairman of
the project,
Rosasco says the club has
contracted with the Maxwell
AFB dance band of Mont-
gomery, Alabama, to furnish
the music for the ball. The
music will also include at
least two vocalists. The band
and vocalists will perform
some of the old dance stan-
dards made popular by such
bands as Glenn Miller, as
well as some of the danceable
music of today.
"We hope to make this a
real gala New Year's occa-
sion, where everyone can
come and have a good time",
Rosasco said.
The ball will be held in the
Centennial Building starting
at 9:00 p.m., New Year's
Eve.
Tickets for the ball are
currently on sale by every
member of the Rotary Club
at $30 per couple.

LeHardy family and the drug
store was known as LeHar-
dy's Drug Store until the
early 1940's when a young
traveling drug salesman by
the name of John Robert
Smith bought the store and
changed the name to Smith's
Pharmacy. Even though the
business was still known for
years afterward' as LeHar-
dy's Drug-Stofi, Smith own-
ed the business longer than
any of its previous proprie-
tors.
In the early 1970's, Smith
sold out the store to John
Cooley and retired from
business.
Cooley owned the store for
a few years before ill health
made him step down from
active participation in its
operation.
In the late 70's, Cooley sold
the drug store to Walter
Scott, who operated it until
the sale to the Buzzetts two
weeks ago.
Over the 62 years of
operation, the drug store
became a fixture at the
corner of Reid Avenue' and
Third Street, serving at least
two generations with its soda
fountain and other services.
When drug stores began to
phase out their soda fountain
operations, John Robert
Smith was quick to follow the
trend, even though he kept a
soft drink fountain open up
until he sold the store. Cooley
and Scott followed suit with
the fountain operation, even
though it never returned to
the hey-day of the full-blown
soda and lunch counter of
years gone by.
Scott says he still doesn't
know what the future holds
for him, but for the drug
store, the future is that it will
move in with a sister drug
store here in Port St. Joe, but
will lose its identity it has
held for many years.


Today the ARC provides an
activities center where the
client can learn arts and
crafts; a group home setting,
where a small number of
clients are housed in a
home-like atmosphere; sen-
ior activities where adults
can participate in recreation-
al activities and skills train-
ing, where clients can get
training for a vocation.
The local center cares for
22 clients and has an annual
budget of approximately
$200,000 a year.

ARC Se
Gulf County Association
for Retarded' Citizens has
grown from a one dimension-
al center at its beginning in
1974 to a center specializ-
ing in four areas of treatment
and training today, Sharon
Lipford, center director, told
the Rotary Club last Thurs-
day.
The ARC, as it is now
called, was first organized
because it was felt retarded
citizens could be given better
care and better training at
less cost than they were
receiving in a centralized
treatment center, according
to Lipford, and at the same
time allow clients of the
organization to stay at or
near home.
"We now train our clients
to be self-sufficient", Mrs.
Lipford said, "and in some
instances they improve to the
point where they can earn
their own living". The direc-
tor said that in most cases
the clients can be taught to at
least be partially self-suffi-
cient and reduce the number
of tax dollars which goes into
their support.

Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc.
The competition is designed
to challenge black youths in
grades seven through 12 to

ture and history and to

Fly to Excellence".

are: Anthony Dixon, cap-
tain; Antoinette Adams, co-

Strawberries...Good Fruit, Hardy Ground Cover


By Roy Lee Carter
Extension Agent
It is no wonder strawber-
ries are so widely grown by
sunshine state gardeners. In
addition to their taste appeal
and attractive appearance,
they are well suited for
Florida conditions. Even
though their multimillion dol-
lar commercial production is
limited to a few areas, they
are grown as annuals. My
information on these popular
plants was provided by Ex-
tension Vegetable Specialist
Jim Stephens, of the Univer-
sity of Florida's Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sci-
ences.
In North and Central Flor-
ida, strawberry plants can be
set from now through mid-
November, and in south
Florida, until early Decem-
ber. When winter comes, the
cool nights and short days
will cause the plants to begin
flowering. Flowers formed
after the last killing frost of
early spring will develop into
fruits.


\ 1
CARTER
Berry production and har-
vest continue through the
spring. As the weather gets
warmer and days grow long-
er, the plants will stop
producing berries and form
runners. However, most
home gardeners destroy such
plants and start over again in
the fall.
Although strawberries can
be grown in just about any
type Florida soil, they don't
do as well in peat or muck.

drained soil, which is moist
but not wet. Sandy soil with
plenty of organic matter is
best.
It is important to plant
strawberry varieties which
have proven themselves un-
der Florida conditions-va-
rieties such as Dover and
Florida Belle. They yield
large fruit, and are resistant
to a common plant disease
called Anthracnose. Other
varieties well adapted to our
state are Florida 90, Tioga,
and Sequoia.
Strawberries should be
planted in raised beds, which


are two feet wide and spaced
two feet apart. The beds
should be mounded, so they
are six inches high along the
edges and about eight inches
high in the middle.
For a ten-by-ten foot straw-
berry patch, broadcast about
two and a half pounds of 8-8-8
fertilizer and work it into the
soil. Then form the beds in
the manner we have de-
scribed, and apply another
two and one half pound of
fertilizer. This time, place
the fertilizer in a narrow
band about six inches deep in
the middle of each bed. Also,

After the beds have been
properly formed, fertilized,

cover each with a sheet of
one and one half mil black

be set in double rows, one on
each side of the raised bed,
about six inches from the
edges. Space the plants 12


inches apart in rows. Be sure
that no plants are set directly
over the fertilizer band,
because this can lead to salt

Always start with certified,

Childer's reported this vio-
lates a reversion clause of
the federal mandate granting
the property for county use,
which states if the property is
used for anything other than.
a recreation area only, the
deed automatically reverts
to the federal government.
Childers also reminded the
Board recreational facilities
must be constructed on this
and other park sites within
five years from deed transfer
or ownership will revert back
to federal government, offer-
ing the following suggestion.
Land & Water Conserva-
tion Fund (In-kind Cost

able Dead Man's Curve &
White City Park Sites. One
time grant available for
Beacon Hill park site.

Dead Man's Curve Park
Property.is temporary and
the Board will look for
another site.
Comm.' Money requested
the possibility of obtaining
pe-mission to locate the
trailers on the site.
Comm. Money requested
the possibility of obtaining
permission to locate the
trailers on the site. Associate
Attorney Gibson reported he
had previously checked into
this matter when the fire
department wanted to use
the property to locate a fire
truck on and basically found
the fact that if the county
uses the property for any-
thing other than recreation,
regardless of how beneficial
a public purpose, the federal
government can take it back.
Upon Comm. Money request-
ing the use be changed' to
allow the fire truck to be
parked on the property, the
Attorney and Mr. Childers
advised it would take an act
of Congress once the use is
initially approved.

No Cost for Social

Security Information


A firm calling itself "Social
Security Monitoring Ser-
vice," is advertising through-
out the country offering to
perform a service for a fee
that Social Security provides
at no cost whatsoever.
The advertising takes the
form of card-inserts in maga-
zines, inserts in bills or bank
statements, cable television
advertisements, and other
forms of direct mail adver-
tising.
The firm says that, for a
fee of $5 a year, it will
provide people with informa-
tion from their Social Secur-
ity earnings record. People
can get an earnings state-
ienti' free of charge if they
ask at any Social Security
office for a "Request for
Statement of Earnings"
(Form SSA-7004PC), fill it
out, and mail it. In a few
weeks they will get a copy of
their earnings recorded by
Social Security. This firm
can do no more.
The firms advertising in-
fers that Social Security


keeps a record of the Social
Security taxes paid. This is
not so. The only record Social
Security has is of earnings
covered under Social Secur-
ity that have been reported
by employers and self-em-
ployed people.
The ad also indicates that
only the person involved can
correct 'any errors in his or
her Social Security record.
The person, can, of course,
take action to correct any
error in his or her record.
But, in addition, Social Se-
curity will correct the errors
whenever they are brought
to its attention.
Social Security does en-
courage people to check their
records every three years or
more often if they change
jobs frequently. This way,
any errors that occur can be
corrected in a timely fashion.
People who would like to
check their Social Security
record 'or who have any
questions about Social Secur-
ity should contact the nearest
Social Security office.

We Ai

This week people acrQss
our land' m4de _decisions
about who they wanted to
have as representatives in

us' are happy and others
unhappy about those deci-
sions.
One thing is certain, we
will all have to live with our
decisions. But:thatP the way
life is; we are constantly
making decisions that we will
live with like it or' not.
In life, the decision is
yours. Nowhere is this more
evident than'in the decision
we all make concerning the
use of, our three legal,
-accepted, and respected
drugs. They are nicotine,
caffeine and alcohol.
In" my profession, I have
often ministered to friends
who have developed respirp-
-tory, pulmonary, nervous
.and gastric disorders be-
cause of the use of our social
drugs. In most cases, doctors
order their patients "to ab-
Sstain from the intake of.
substances containing these
Selements. Usually, I have
o: observed improvements in
the health of these patients. I

commented on the risks

something about caffeine.
But today I would like to say
a word about the decision we
all make about the use of
:-_ alcohol as a beverage. This is
another "decision- .we, ou r
loved ones, our potential'
victims, and our survivors
may havelto live with.
For as long as history has

drink seeking to feel more

suggestion to people who
drink for these reasons is
this: Find an alternative way
to achieve excitement or

There are countless activi-

meaningful. You don't need

People, Natural Gas


& Safety


Natural gas supplies vitally needed
energy to thousands of homes, businesses
and industries in Florida. Energy, whether it
be in the form of gas, electricity, oil, water,
etc., when uncontrolled can be dangerous.

:Even though a record of safe operations
has been established over the years by the
regulated gas industry, knowledge of the in-
formation contained in this ad can assist you
in recognizing a potentially hazardous condi-
tion and take appropriate action to safeguard
life and property.

Q. What Are Some of the Characteristics Of
Natural Gas A User Should Know?
A. Natural Gas is a mixture of hydrocarbons
composed mainly of methane and exhibits
the following characteristics:
1. Odorless-an odor is added to this gas.
2. It is lighter than air and if released will
rise into the atmosphere unless trap-
ped.
3. It is nontoxic. However, as with any bur-
ning process, incomplete combustion
will'form carbon monoxide which is tox-
ic.
4. It is colorless.
5. It has a flammability range of from
four%/o to 14% (approximate values by
volume of gas to air).

Q. Is Natural Gas Dangerous?
A. Gas, like all forms of energy, is capable of
doing damage and must be used properly.
However, the experience with natural gas
use shows it to'be more safe than other
energy sources which you use in your
home or business.


Q.
. .


What Should You Know About Gas Odor?
1. Natural gas doesn't normally have an

2. A substance is added by your gas com-
pany to give natural gas a "rotten-egg"
smell should it escape.


3. Become familiar with the smell. Should
you detect this odor, it doesn't positive-
ly tell you that there is a gas leak; but
this is sufficient reason for you to call
your gas company and have them in-
vestigate.

Q. What Additional Ways Can You Detect A
Gas Leak?
A. 1. When the ground is wet, you may detect
a leak by seeing bubbles rising through
puddles of water in a uniform manner.
2. A larger leak of gas from underground
piping may be'able to be seen by sand
blowing around a small hole in the
ground; it may be felt just as you may
feel air leaking from a small hole in a
'tire or air hose; and if it is a large leak, a
noise can be heard similar to air leak-
ing.
3. A flame at or around appliance pip-
ingother than at the burner indicates
leak age.

Q. The Fact That A "Rotten-Egg" Odor Is De-
tected, Does That Mean That There Is A
Natural Gas Leak?
A. No. But this should be checked to assure
that the odor isn't an indication of a gas
leak. Call your gas company and report it.
Odors similar to that of natural gas may
come from the following:
1. A sewer system.
2. A water aeration plant which has a sul-
phur content.
3. Swamps or bogs.
4. Areas where the land has been filled,
etc.

Q. If There Is A Gas Leak, Will You Always
Smell An Odor?
A. No. If gas leaks from an above ground
pipe, there should always be an odor.
However, when gas travels through the
ground, such as a leak from an
underground service line or main, the
ground acts as a filter and can remove the


odor from the gas.


Q. Why Isn't A Gas Odor Smelled When The
Gas Is Burned On A Gas Range or Fur-
nace?
A. The material used to odorize the gas is
flammable and is consumed in.the process
of burning. If your equipment is properly
adjusted you should not detect the odor
when you are using your appliances.

Q. What Can One Do to Reduce the Possibili-
ty OfAn Accident?
A. First keep the emergency telephone
number of your gas company handy. A
good place to keep this number is to write
it down in the front of your telephone book
along with other emergency telephone
numbers such as fire, police, etc.
Other things which should be done to im-
prove safety as well as conserve energy
are:
1. Teach children that they are not to play
with any appliances in the home.
2. Clean the burners and have them check-
ed for proper adjustment periodically.
3. Repairs, installations and removal of
appliances are jobs for qualified per-
sons. Use only qualified people to do
this work.
4. If lighting of an appliance is required,
*ALWAYS light match and hold at igni-
tion point of burner before you turn on
the gas.
5. Follow the manufacturer's instruc-
tionsfor operation and care of gas ap-
pliances.
6. Never take a chance. If you think you
smell gas, call your gas company.

Q. What Should Be Done When One Believes
He Smells Gas?
A. There are many possible conditions which
could be encountered, thus it isn't possi-
ble to give specific instructions for every
situation: The following examples provide
general instructions which should assist:


1. If a slight odor is detected in a localized
area or room of a building-do not use a
match or other flame in" the area; call
the gas company immediately.
2. If a strong odor of gas is detected in a
building or other confined space-do
not operate electrical switches, light
matches or use an open flame;
however, do open windows and doors to
ventilate the area (caution: don't turn on
exhaust fans) leave the building and
call the gas company.
3. If a strong odor is detected in a building
and/or a hissing sound is heard-do not
operate electrical switches, lights or
other devices; do evacuate the building
leaving exit doors open on your way out,
warn persons to stay clear of the
building and call the fire department
and gas company immediately from
another location.
4. If the odor of gas is detected outside (in
the yard, at the sidewalk, etc.)-im-
mediately call the gas company.

SAFETY IS YOUR BUSINESS. Educate
your family and friends about the precautions
to take when they believe they smell the odor
of gas.
CAUTION: The term "Gas" is used by the
news media and others to include a variety of
products such as liquefied petroleum gases
(propane, butane), gasoline and natural gas.
Each product has its own characteristics
which differ from one another, thus the infor-
mation given in this advertisement is ap-
plicable only to NATURAL GAS.

NEVER POSTPONE CALLING
THE GAS COMPANY WHEN
YOU BELIEVE THAT YOU SMELL GAS.
