Basketball Season Begins Here Dec. 2


Port St. Joe's basketball
Sharks will begin their new
season Tuesday night of next
week with perhaps the larg-
est question mark ever,
hanging over the future of the
team.
The Sharks, perpetually of
championship caliber-es-
pecially for the past six years
or so-begins its season in
the R. Marion Craig Coli-
seum against the always
tough Bay High Tornadoes.
"Pray for us", head coach
Jim Belin says, "We're be-
ginning a season with only
two players from last year's
squad and only one of those
was one of the first five".
The Sharks will have Cur-

Man Caught
Peddling Pot,
Crack in Gulf
The Gulf County Sheriff's
Department arrested a Mi-
ami man, Robert James
Wright, about 27, Tuesday
and charged him with deliv-
ering marijuana and crack
cocaine in the county.
Wright was arrested and
seizure made on a quantity of
the illegal drugs, $1,000 in
small denomination bills.
Wright is currently being
held in the Gulf County jail.


tis Beard, as their only
starter from last year. Beard
had some good numbers to
his credit last year, but he's
still only one returning start-
er. Beard is a 5'10" 165 pound
junior this year. He had a
12.4 points per game average
last year with 91 assists. He
also averaged 6.6 rebounds
per game for the year.
"Beard is an excellent
player and we're glad to have
him back", Belin said. The
only other returned from last
year's team is Jason Ham-
mac. He is a 6'1" forward
who was a sixth man last for
the Sharks. Hammac was
a good solid player for the
Sharks last year, but is still
unproven as a starter.
"We don't have a single
senior on the team this
year", Belin said. He stres-
sed that most of the team
graduated from last year's
junior varsity squad. "Carlos
Julius, at 6'1" is the tallest
man on the squad along with
Jason Hamac", according to
Belin.
Other members of the
team taking the hardwood
Tuesday night will be juniors
Marvin Hamilton at 6' and
175 pounds; Darin Callaway,
5'11" and 166; Anthony Dixon
5'8", 155; Nathan Peters,
6'0", 180 and Ecuador Peters,
5'7", 140; sophomore Danny


Moree, 5'9" and 168 and
Russell Cherry, 6'0", 178.
"Our starting line-up is
still up for grabs", Belin
said. "We have just started
serious practice because
some of the boys just com-


pleted football. We still have-
n't made up our mind who
will be on the first five
Tuesday. We're going to give
all our athletes a good look".
Game time Tuesday will be
at 6:30 p.m.


Belin will be returning as
head coach, with William
Lane as assistant varsity
coach. The JV team will be
directed by Danny Caylor
and the junior high team will
be coached by Scott Gowan.


Holiday schedules will be in effect
throughout Gulf County this weekend, with
government services coming to an almost
halt Wednesday afternoon and remaining on
hold until Monday of next week, according
to officials at the various installations
throughout the county.
One of the dates most paid attention to
around this time of the year, is the deadline
for paying county and city taxes in time to
take advantage of the full discount for
paying early.
That deadline is set by law as November
30. After the last day of the month of
November, the discount percentages start to
dwindle until March when the full amount of
the tax bill is due with no discount available.
Tax Collector, Eda Ruth Taylor said the
final .week in November is usually the.
office's busiest month of the.year for taxes.
"The larger tax payers usually rush in at the
last week of the month of November to take
advantage of that four percent discount for
paying early", Taylor said. The Tax
Collector pointed out that in Gulf County,
between 70 and 75 percent of the taxes are
paid in November, "because of the big
discount", she pointed out.
The Tax Collector's office has already
been busy this month. Taylor said that by
the time the office is closed for the Thursday
holiday, she expects at least $3 million in
taxes to be paid. "Before the end of the
month, we'll collect considerably more than
$3 million" she estimated. "November-es-
pecially the last two weeks of November-is
,an important and busy time for our office",
Taylor pointed out.
Actually, 'the offi& has three busy
seasons, so far as collecting taxes is
concerned. "We'll collect a lot of taxes the
last week of December from people who
want to get them paid and take advantage of
the deduction on their federal income taxes.
Then we'll have another busy season the last
two weeks in March from people who want
to get the'p before they become delinquent",
the countyofficer said.


NO EXTENSION
In spite of the holiday and the busy
season, Taylor said there would be no
extension of the period of time to receivethe
four percent interest discount on tax bills.
"We'll give the full four percent on all
checks mailed in with a November 30 or
prior postmark, but there will be no
extension of a day or so to make up for the
holiday period", she emphasized.
Taylor's office is charged with collect-
ing some $5.5 million in county, city and
district taxes this year.
Taylor stressed the fact that "We will be
here Friday to accept payment of taxes in
our office". The office will be closed on
Thursday, however.
COURTHOUSE HOURS
Gulf County's Courthouse will be open
for business and it will be closed on Friday,
the day following Thanksgiving day. Some
offices, notably the Tax Collector's office,
will be open for business as .usual on Friday.
According to the office of the Clerk of the
Court, only the Clerk's office will be closed
all day Friday. The remainder of the offices
were scheduled to be open according to the
source of information questioned Tuesday.
Some other offices in the Courthouse are
expected to be closed on Friday, along with
the Clerk's office, however, and it might be
a good idea to call the Courthouse on Friday
to make sure a particular office is open if
you have some business to transact there.
CITY HALL OFFICE
Port St. Joe's City Hall will definitely be
closed all day Thursday and Friday,
according to City Auditor and Clerk, Alden
*Farris."'Many of our outside services will
be in operation on Friday, as usual, but the
City Hall office will be closed," Farris said.
Garbage pick-ups ordinarily scheduled
for Thursday will be made on Wednesday,
with the Friday pick-up right on schedule as
usual.
Water, sewer and street crews will
maintain a stand-by crew all through the
holiday weekend to take care of any
emergency which might arise, no matter
which day it is.


Rebuilding Dock Should


Begin Late
City Auditor and. Clerk Alden Farris
said yesterday work should begin within the
next week on replacing the docking facilities
at the boat ramp at the end of Fifth Street in
St. Joseph Bay.
The project will be built by Gaddie
Construction Company of Lynn Haven at a
cost of $37,992.
Farris said only an understanding of
wording onr the contract stands in the way of
work beginning. "We made a change in the
contract and we're just making sure both
sides understands the change and what it
requires before work gets underway",
Farris said.
The change in the contract was to
replace a planned short boardwalk ap-
proach to the dock, from the land, to a
cement walk, reinforced and framed by
steel, rather than cypress timbers.


Next Week
"We hope to have the entire project
finished and ready for use by the end of
January", Farris said.
The City Commission has been working
on permits from various state and federal
agencies to replace the wooden dock
structure at the boat launch site for at least
the past five years. The wooden structure
caused a perpetual maintenance problem
for the city, and even the maintenance work
required the handful of permits be secured.
With a new structure made of concrete
and steel, the City hopes to make the
structure more sound and secure both from
a use and maintenance standpoint.
"We have had long standing problems
and delays with securing all the permits
necessary to allow us to replace this existing
dock. Now that we finally have them all,
we're going to get the structure into place in
a short period of time", Farris said.

Long Avenue Baptist Church instructed
their contractor, Flagala Corporation of
Panama City, to proceed with construction
of a 20,000 square foot addition to their
church this week. The church has been
making plans for two years to construct a
family life complex on the south side of their
property at the corner of Long Avenue and
16th Street. "We're finally under way with
the actual building of the center", pastor,
Dr. Dan Duncan said this weekr.
With some of the construction and
furnishing decisions still to be made, the
church is expecting to put some $275,000 into
the project before it is completed.
"We've waited a long time for this
project to begin. We feel it will be a valuable
addition to the program of our church and to
the community. The best part of the whole
project is, that when it is finished, it will all
be paid for. We're not going to have to sweat
any monthly payments to pay it off".
The new building will be built of steel,
concrete and stucco and will be two stories
tall.
Dr. Duncan said contractors were
scheduled to begin digging footers for the


nily Center
foundation this week, "but with the
holidays, I don't really expect them to get to
work until sometime next week", Duncan
said. Site preparation has been underway
for the past two weeks, as well as
preparation of temporary parking lot to the
rear of the construction site.
When completed, the building will
contain facilities for educational and
recreational programs. The building will
contain two stories of classrooms, meeting.
and dining facilities. The rear half of the
building will feature a full size basketball
court with an all-purpose floor for games
and activities including roller skating,
shuffleboard, volleyball, basketball and
other activities.
The building will contain a full kitchen
and dining space.
Completion of the new building is
expected to be in about six months.
The church broke ground on the new
facilities back in May when the congrega-
tion celebrated their 33rd anniversary with
dedication of a new pastorium, a staff house
and broke ground for the family life center.

THE STAR


THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 27,1986


It may be a novel idea to give
thanks here at Thanksgiving for
something we don't have this year,
but that's the thing we're going to
do this year.
We're going to give thanks this
year that our Thanksgiving doesn't
bring back the same experiences
we had at the same time last year.
Surely you remember.
Last year, as we sat down to
our tables of plenty, we were all
giving thanks that we didn't get
blown away, injured or killed when
Hurricane Kate blew in with all her
fury exactly a week prior to the
holiday celebration.
There were people along our
Gulf coast area last year who still
didn't have their electricity restor-
ed to use for the holiday. There
were people who still had a house
leaking as they sat down to their
Thanksgiving meal. There were
some people who were making do
as best they could with living


arrangements, since their house
had been damaged to the point
where it was unlivable just one
week prior.
We here in Port St.. Joe have a
tangible reason for giving thanks
this year. We have a reason we can
remember with clarity and give
thanks that it isn't repeated this
year.
Last year, we were giving
thanks that no one was killed nor
seriously injured. We were giving
thanks that our damages were not
unsurmountable and that we had
hopes of overcoming the ravages of
the storm and that we had survived
one of nature's more serious
onslaughts.
This year, we can get back to
the basics and thank God for life,
liberty and happiness as we sit
down to the laden table on
Thursday.
Happy Thanksgiving to you all.

since he pulled over to help
you. You didn't even get his
name. Being thankful is good
for you.
How about your first little
league coach. Remember
him? Worked those odd hours
down at the shoe factory, but
always worked his shift
around where he never mis-
sid a game. He jumped up
and down with you when you
won and he patted your arm
and told you how well you
played when you lost. But
most important of all he
never yelled "My Grand-
mother could have caught
that one" when you let the
slow roller go right between
your legs. Don't you appre-
ciate him? Aren't you thank-
ful?"
I can't cook a lick and I


Have A Happy


Now, What Do We Do?


We're wondering who voted in
favor of the lottery question here in
Florida earlier this month?
We don't know what caused the
signal this past week, but the
Panama City newspaper had a poll
of citizens which resulted in
all but one saying they would buy
no lottery tickets when they
became available because they
felt lottery was just gambling and
they didn't believe in gambling.
Those' were our sentiments,
too, which is the reason we didn't
vote for it. It's also the reason we
voted against it and would do so
again if we had the opportunity.
Anyhow, almost every news-
paper we picked up last week had a
story about the lottery situation in
Florida. The dailies had stories
about the fact it looks as if it will
take until late next year before the
first lottery ticket may be bought.
All the weeklies had their editors
expressing themselves, saying
they thought the lottery was one of
the worst thing to hit Florida since
the Mediterranean fruit fly. Most
allowed as to how they had opposed
the lottery question.
But, it was approved by
Florida voters by a two to one
majority. Who voted for it? All we
see are expressions by those who
opposed it and a declaration by
others they won't buy a ticket.
We join those who will not buy
a lottery ticket when and if they
become available. It would suit us
just fine if they never do become
available, but that's too much to
hope for.


We see where the Tallahassee
Democrat is nudging the Legisla-
ture into action to hurry up and
stipulate where the lottery money
will be spent and to get the plan into
action. The Democrat would even
have the law makers do these
lottery things in a special session.
They don't want us to wait until the
next session, which is way off next
April, to set the wheels in motion.
If the Legislature does what
the Democrat suggests, they will
spend part of that lottery money-
which is supposed to be destined for
school use-to pay for the session
which will set the wheels into
motion. Already there are reasons
to digress from the pledge to use
the funds for other than school
purposes.
The "I told you so" set will
probably have a hey-day before
this lottery thing even gets started
good. And, we deserve it.


Watch It!

Hunting season has started and
at least one area editor is concern-
ed over deer hunters parking on
and hunting deer across state and
county roads.
It is illegal to do such things.
We haven't looked around Gulf
County yet this season to see what
the hunting habits are here, but
we'd like to serve up a little
reminder here that it's not legal to
hunt from and across public roads,
it is also dangerous both to hunters
and those who travel the roads.


It's Hard Work Getting In Shape for the Big Thanksgiving


HERE IT IS. only two days until
Thanksgiving (one day, by the time
you get this newspaper) and if your
thoughts aren't just naturally turning
toward thinking about good things to
eat. there's definitely something
wrong with you.
For two months, now, I have been
trying to get into shape for the big
pig-out day of the year. I have
exercised an extreme amount of
will-power, cutting down on my
portions at meal time, and absolutely
eliminating anything of an ingestible
nature between meals for the past two
months, in order to be able to do what
most folks do on Thanksgiving day
without having a guilty conscience
about it.
After all that extreme and faithful
effort, I shed 10 pounds in my quest for
a stomach which wouldn't be too over
burdened by a good old fashioned
Thanksgiving day.
It took two months to shed that 10
pounds and it'll probably all be put
back on in only one week end.
My goal was 15 pounds, but 10
pounds is a reasonable accomplish-


ment for someone who isn't accus-
tomed to dieting.
++ + + +
REMEMBER FLIP WILSON and
his famous line. "The devil made me


do it"?
Well. during these two months of
attempting to compact my pleasingly
plump frame, the devil has been
there. As a matter of fact. he's been
everywhere I turn. tempting me with
one delightful and delectable morsel
after another.
It seems everywhere I turned
during those two months, there was
temptation. Here a piece of pie: there


a slice of cake; two or three suppers at
the church with a table groaning from
the weight of a selection of desserts. It
was almost too much. In a situation
such as I have experienced for the


past two months. I think I ought to be
able to brag that I lost 10 pounds,
rather than complain because it was
ONLY 10 pounds.
It isn't easy to shed advoirdupois
when you travel in the circles I travel
in.
I go to take a picture of a young
and beautiful girl about to be married.
and there is another table of goodies.
There are also the makers of those


grand and glorious morsels, contain-
ing calorie after calorie, pushing them
toward me, saying, "Try one of
these!" or "Have you ever eaten one
of these?" or "You just have to taste


this. It's my own special recipe".
Who am I to disappoint a superb
cook in such a situation? I do as I'm
bid and take a taste which usually
calls for another taste.
+ + + + + *
I CAN'T EVEN get away from the
excellent cooks which abound on
every corner of Port St. Joe. by going
to the football game on Friday nights.
Thank goodness the football sea-


son in Port St. Joe is over for the year.
If we were in the play-offs this year,
and played at least half of the post
season games here in Port St. Joe, I'd
gain those 10 pounds back whether I
ate Thanksgiving dinner or not.
A real "devil" got after me during
those home football games.
To top it all off, this devil was a
preacher's wife! Still, she tempted me
and I gave in several times.
Mrs. Charlotte Browning, who
truly knows what to do with a sack of
flour, some sweet'nin, a few nuts and
a pinch of spices, cooked up some of
the most delectible sweet rolls which
one ever put into his or her mouth, and
sent them up to the press box by her
husband, Bro. Howard.
That woman is a master with a
baking pan. She is an artist with the
flour, and other ingredients.
She made me sin!
There I was, trying mightily to
slim down to a mere shadow of my'
former self. and Miss Charlotte kept
sending those goodies to the press box
every night, and there was only Bill
Fleming. Teedy Nobles, whichever


Tides


Pig Out

preacher happened to be saying the
pre-game prayer that night, the
time-keeper and myself to do away
with enough sweet rolls to do the
average six-kid family for a week.
Miss Charlotte would feel bad if
we didn't tend to the business of eating
those dainty delights.
So, we all did our best.
Teedy Nobles did better than any
of us. His duties in the press box were
to spot for Bill Fleming as he
announced, but sometimes he would
be two plays behind in identifying
players involved, because he was
trying to help us along with doing
away with the pan of pastries.
When a few of our good buddies
began to understand what we were
having to endure up in the press box,
we started having visitors at half
time. If it hadn't been for that help
and Teedy's prodigious appetite, I
might have gained 10 pounds over the
past two months, rather than shed 10
pounds.
It's a tough job being an editor
and being subjected to all this
temptation, but somebody has to do it.

Letters-
Give Thanks
to God .
Dear Mr. Ramsey,
I feel compelled to com-
ment on the events of this
week as they relate to our
Thanksgiving holiday. It is
my understanding that
Thanksgiving as a special
event originated to give
thanks to God for His bless-
ings. The Pilgrims gathered
together to offer to God their
thanks and to show their
thankfulness through sharing
their blessings. Our commu- /
nity Thanksgiving worship,
service here in Port St. Joe
seems to really bring out this
original idea of coming to-
gether to thank God. It is a
wonderful idea!
However, I. feel the com-
munity religious leaders are
making a serious error in
replacing all other services
during this week with this
one service. Is this putting
God first as the scripture
tells us? What are the
(Continued on Page 3)


them whether they wanted it
or not. She gave her whole
life to it. Isn't it great to be
able to be thankful! One day
you tell yourself you're going
to look the little old lady
teacher up, hug her neck and
say "Thank you." Of course,
you never do but you are
thankful just the same. And
dummy, she knows that -
she was always smarter than
us.
How about the guy who
stopped to help you on the
interstate. You were on the
way back to college when all
those red lights on the dash
start lighting up. You raise
the hood and when the smoke
clears you kinda lean over
and peer inside. Now you
don't know a thing about cars
- you're just leaning over,


looking in 'cause you don't
know what else to do. Reckin'
we've all had that empty, lost
feeling. That's when he stop-
ped. "Trouble, son?"
It was a belt of some kind.
You have to take his Buick
the 20 miles or so down to the
next exit, buy the belt and
then return to your car. The
guy doesn't seen to be in a
hurry at all he's talking and
laughing with you. Luckily he
has some tools in his trunk
and he puts the belt on. You
about halfway mumble
thanks and the guy is already
in his Buick headin' east.
That was the only time you
ever saw him but, boy
howdy, aren't you thankful.
When people talk of nice guys
or good folks you think of this

SHAD

PHANTRY
by Wendell Campbell




Fat As A Fiddle...
SOME YEARS AGO, before I made marriage, a
friend and I were discussing girls and I asked him
about a certain girl I had heard of but never met. "You
don't want to date her," he said emphatically. "Why?"
I wanted to know. "Well," he said in a confidential
tone, "The first time I saw her, my friend asked, 'Who's
that crowd over there?' "
Before any of you think anything, let me admit that
I'm, in the words of my youngest son, a mite "stout;"
about thirty pounds stout. Let me admit, also, that it's
not much fun when you're in my condition and enter a
"bank-walking" contest at the beach. It sure is fun
putting it on, though!
Carol asked me some time ago not to write any
more articles about food. She asked me that because
she's on a diet and is doing wonderfully well. Forgive
me, Carol, but I must write about the thing I do best;
that is stick my chubby legs under the eatin' table.
+++++
ABOUR FIVE YEARS AGO I went on a diet. I
stayed on it for about three years, give or take six
months. It was a serious diet. I ate all the right foods
and didn't smoke, drink or stay up late at night. I also
worked out on a regular schedule. I did all the things
one is supposed to do to lose weight.
It worked very well. I lost about thirty-five pounds!
As a matter of fact, it worked so well that a friend,
Charlie Wall, saw me one day and asked, "What's the
matter with you, are you sick?" When I told him I was
on a diet he replied, "Well, get off it. You look like the
dickens!"
+++++
I MUST ADMIT THAT I never felt better in my life.
I had more energy than I did when I was in high school.
When I went to bed at night, I slept as though I were
dead. When I awoke, however, I hit the floor running. I
didn't even get sleepy after I ate lunch. Quite frankly, I
was beginning to wonder why I hadn't been on this diet
all my life.
As I said, I was on this "Health Kick" for about
three years.
Finally, about two years ago, I took Charlie's
advice. I decided to kick the "Health Kick" and I
decided to do it the week before Thanksgiving. We all
know what follows Thanksgiving.
+++++
I FOUND THAT I had almost forgotten what it was
like to sit down at a table and eat until I was unable to
stand up. I had to re-train my wife on cooking
chicken-n-dumplings, with gravy so thick that we have
to eat it with a spoon. And I had almost forgotten what a
pound of crispy fried bacon beside a plate full of
homemade pancakes with two "over easy" eggs
perched on top was like.
I also started drinking freshly brewed iced tea and
coffee again, sweetened with real, granulated sugar.
Then there was fresh field peas, seasoned with
bacon drippings, with boiled okra floating on top. And
freshly baked cornbread, sliced with fresh, real butter
in the middle.
Yes, it was quite a job, learning to eat hoggishly
again. pt, as you can see, I mae ...
I HAVE MUCH admiration for those who are like
me and are doing something about it. Losing weight is
the hardest thing I have ever tried to do. I must admit,
though, that I feel a twang of pity for dieters when I see
them picking at their green salad and baked chicken. I
know they must hate the artificial sweeteners just as
much as I did.
Those people have lots of guts! Theirs are just not
as full as mine and those of you who dare to eat greatly.
If I make it through Thanksgiving and Christmas
without having a heart attack or stroke, I'm going to
promise myself two things; I'm going to quit using
sugar on my prunes and salt in my beer.

thankful for whoever it is
that teaches mothers to cook.
I'm thankful 'cause they're
still young people who say sir
and ma'am, please and thank
you. I'm thankful I live in a
place where people wave and
speak when you pass them on
the street.
Listen, we're out of time
and we haven't even got to
the heavy stuff yet, like being
thankful for parents, our
* country, God, good health,
freedom and apple pie. But
Then I know you're thankful,
for thpse things you'd
never take them for granted!
And if you read down this
far I'm thankful for you
too. I hope you have a happy
and truly thankful Thanks-
giving.
Respectfully,
Kes

'OBITUARIES:

Axie R. Roberts, 86


Mrs. Axie R. Roberts, 86,
passed away Saturday night
in Gulf Coast Convalescent
Center following a lengthy
illness. She was a lifelong
resident of Wewahitchka.
Survivors include: one
daughter, Sarah Ward of
Wewahitchka; one brother,
John E. Rhames of Daleville,
Ala.; three grandchildren,
James Ward, David Ward
and Ann Causey of Wewa-
hitchka; seven great grand-
children; and numerous
nieces and nephews.
Graveside funeral services
were held Monday at the
Pleasant Rest Cemetery in
Overstreet with interment
following.


Comforter Funeral Home
was in charge of all arrange-
ments.

Ed Champion
Ed Champion, 88, passed
away last Tuesday at Gulf
Pines Hospital. He had been
a long time resident of the
Gulf County area.
He is survived by his sister,
Fannie Ott of Dothan, Ala.
and several nieces and ne-
phews.
Funeral services were held
at 11:00 a.m. Friday at
Cypress Creek Cemetery in
Kinard. Interment followed.
All services were under the
direction of Comforter Fune-
ral Home.

reasons for having this ser-
vice on Monday rather than
on Thursday? Thursday
would be the ideal time for
such a service, but I can
imagine the outcry if people
had to stop cooking, stop
visiting with family and
friends or stop watching


ballgames to spend one hour
praising and thanking God.
If it is necessary to cancel
all Wednesday evening ser-
vices why isn't this service
on Wednesday evening? A
special service of Thanksgiv-
ing should be in addition to
our regular services of wor-


ship. This would better show
God our sincerity in offering
our thanks.
It seems to me that at this
Thanksgiving time our Lord
is being relegated to a place
below fun, food and family,
and I repeat this is a serious
mistake.

Letter to Editor:
Children's Choir Praiseworthy


Mr. Ramsey,
I would like to commend
the children's choir of the
First United Methodist
Church for a superb job on
their musical, "Down by the
Creek Bank", they perform-
ed this past Sunday night.


It was evident that a lot of
time and effort went into it
and the choir and its direc-
tors are definitely worthy of
praise.
Sincerely,
David Paul Lowery

Our Constitution


tion at the regular meeting
Wednesday, November 19, at
the Garden Center.
Major Robinson is the
Senior Protestant Chaplain
and Hospital Chaplain at
Tyndall Air Force Base. His
speech "Liberty", empha-
sized the blessings and re-
sponsibilities of freedom as
Well as its dangers when not
used properly.
Stating that only one third
of the world's population
enjoys the blessings of living
in a free country he cited
examples of his own lors of
liberty when stationed in
Saudi Arabia. He was not
free to hold religious services
or to wear the cross which
designates him as a Chap-
lain. Liberty is abused when
citizens do not vote, when
they break the law, when
they are rude and do not
respect the rights of others.
"Freedom is a fine trea-
sure and best in the United
States of America,". he con-
cluded.

to fight Leon County for the

"Gulf County could be
number one in the production
of cultivated seafood in the
state of Florida", Bob Engle,
a marine biologist, told the
Rotary Club last Thursday.
at their regular dinner meet-
ing. "Already you have 1,400
acres of Louisiana crawfish
and 80 acres of catfish
producing ponds in operation
in the county and it could be
much, much more", Engle
said.
The biologist, the first ever
to move into the state of
Florida several years ago,
said, "Nearly every country
in the world has an on-
going .program of farming
seafood, except the United
States. And most of these
countries are using methods,
know-how, equipment and
procedures developed in the
United States in their pro-
grams", the speaker pointed
out.
Engle, of Apalachicola and
formerly with the Florida
Department of Natural Re-
sources said part of the
reason the United States is so
backward in the production
of seafood under controlled
conditions is because people
of the United States eat so
little fish meat. "People in
Japan eat 100 pounds of fish
meat per year where people

in the United States eat only
an average of 14 pounds per
year. As a result, Japan has a
highly cultivated system of
producing seafood under con-
trolled conditions", the
speaker pointed out.
Aquaculture is nothing
new. According to the speak-
er, it has been around for
thousands of years and,
today, is mandatory in a lot
of countries of the world, if
they are to get any protein
through consumption of
meat. Even so, he pointed out
that last year there were 200
million pounds of catfish
produced in controlled ponds
in the United States. "This is
just one species", Engle
pointed out.
Engle especially scored the
state of Florida for being so
far behind in the production
of fish protein from this
method of cultivation. "Noth-
ing but chicken can challenge
fish in the production of
pounds of meat per acre used
for that purpose", Engle
said. "Nothing else comes
close to the economical use of
land for production of meat
and Florida is the best
situated state in the nation to
take advantage of this source
of food production.",
Engle blamed the envir-
onmentalists, the DNR, the
Audubons and other like
groups for the backward
condition of our potential
seafood farms in the state.
"They're so afraid it might
upset some ecology some-
where and it's costing us
production and protein to
follow their leading". He
pointed out, "We import 70
percent of the seafood we
consume, when we can and
should grow our own".
The speaker pointed out
there was some ray of hope
for the future. "A group was

successful in getting the
DNR to relax some of its
regulations this week which
will aid the production of
shellfish in a controlled en-
vironment tremendously".
Engle has been responsible
for considerable work in the
possible production of oys-
ters under controlled condi-
tions and is largely respon-
sible for a growing clam
production in St. Joseph Bay.

Everyone is

telling you to take

your capital gains

this year.


That could be

expensive.
Tax Tactic *I:Review your portfolio thoroughly-it could be
more important now'than any time in the last forty years.
At the very least, taking gains now could put you in a higher
bracket this year. In addition, you may be selling stock in the
companies that stand to benefit most from tax reform. So we've
developed a program to help you sort out your situation.
Your local Merrill Lynch Financial Counsultant can help you
analyze your portfolio and, with your tax advisor, recommend
what to do before the first of the year.
And we've prepared two guides outlining tax reform strat-
egies-one for individual investors and one for small business
owners. They describe the impact tax reform will have on IRAs,
municipal bonds, credit and insurance. For a copy, call your local

new era for the Army Civil
Works program," according
to a spokesman for the Army
Corps of Engineers.
Robert K. Dawson said
"the new legislation forges a
new and realistic charter for
future federal water projects
and assures continued water
resources development in
spite of continuing fiscal
austerity necessary to elimi-
nate projected budget defi-
cits."
He said the bill breaks the
long standing impasse over
user fees, cost sharing and
the appropriate federal role
in future water resources
development.
"It also establishes new
cost sharing requirements as
well as national and local
user fees," Dawson added,
"thus guaranteeing that non-
federal interests will play an
important role in planning,
financing and maintaining
Corps of Engineers water
projects."

people.
I am a young man with new solutions to old problems
and with God's help I can be effective for the oppressed
and offer hope and inspiration. I take great pride in
serving the people of this community. After all, I am a:
servant of the people.
God bless America!!!! God is our Father, Christ is our

EYE OPENERS
by Dr. Wesley Grace
CLOSE VISION TASKS
In primitive man, the eyes
were primarily used for see-
ing distant objects, for hunt-
ing animals for food and for
protection.
The demands of contem-
porary life have changed all
that. More of us than" ever
spend inordinate amounts of
time doing some kind of
close work, which often
places undue stress on the
visual system and causes
accommodation and con-
vergence skills to break
down.
* Accommodation is the abil-
ity to change focus from
distant to near objects and
maintain visual clarity.
Convergence is the ability
to pull your eyes in to sus-
tain binocular vision (see-
ing with both eyes at the
same time) at near points.
The amount of strain caus-
ed by sustained close work
varies with individuals. It
depends on the amount of
time spent, the pressure to
complete the job and the dif-
ficulty of the material. Br-
inging printed materials
closer to the eyes in order to
see clearly only increases
the stress and strain of see-
ing.
Properly prescribed low-
power reading glasses often
relieve vision stress and
allows our eyes to adapt to
the task at hand.

M LET'S ALL GIVE THANKS! W
Many years ago the first settlers on this
continent joined with the native Indians to give I
their thanks for the harvest of food which they V
S shared. They also gave thanks for just being alive
although disease and lack of medicines were
B common occurrences. p
Today, most of the diseases that were
prevalent at that time have been conquered and it
would certainly be appropriate as we continue the
a tradition of Thanksgiving to express our
gratitude for the good health we enjoy. It would
also be appropriate for us to express our thanks to
all of you fqr giving us the opportunity and
responsibility of taking care of your pharmacy
needs.
rn "A GREAT MANY PEOPLE ENTRUST US
with their prescriptions, health needs and other K
pharmacy products. We consider this trust a
privilege and a duty. May we be your personal S
family pharmacy?'

End Season Against Sneads


Pirates Outscore the Sharks, 27-14


The Port St. Joe Sharks
were probably glad to get
this disastrous football sea-
son over with Friday night,
as they finished up with a 1-9
record in a rebuilding sea-
son, after coming off three
successive years as a cham-
pionship caliber team. -
For the first time this


season, the Shark offense
showed a spark of what it will
possibly be in a season or
two, as they rolled up 200
yards rushing and 20 yards
passing against a pretty fair
defensive squad.
It was the Sneads passing
game which spelled the dif-
ference against the Sharks,


The Pirate quarterback,
Doug Wilson hit his receivers
-chiefly Billy Singleton-on
seven of 14 passing attempts,
three of them for touch-
downs.
The Pirates took an early
lead in their first possession
of the first period, when it


*


Tim Wilder (7) runs to the outside gaining yardage in
Friday night's action against the Sneads Pirate. Wilder gain-
ed 54 yards in a little over a quarter of action, before an ankle
injury removed him from the game.


*


*


took them only four plays to
score from the Shark 45 yard
line. The extra point kick was
no good, but the Pirates had a
6-0 lead.
The Sharks then took the
kick off from their own 50 and
with Tim Wilder doing the
running, marched the dis-
tance to the goal line in 13
plays to score on a one yard
plunge by Wilder. Joe Norton
kicked the extra point and
the Sharks had the lead for
the rest of the period.
In the second period, Wil-
son went to Singleton twice
through the air on a 10 yard
and a 44 yard play to put the
Pirates on the Shark four
with a first down. It took
them four plays to score, but
Wilson scored on a keeper
from the six and passed to
Kenny Pace for a two point
conversion.
The Pirates again scored
on a razzle-lazzle pass play
when Wilsonla teralled to one
of his backs who dropped
back and threw back to
Wilson, who then threw a
bomb to Singleton at the goal
line to give the Pirates a 14
point lead.
With Wilder sitting on the
sidelines with an injured
ankle, the Sharks were shuf-
ling running backs hunting
for an effective combination,
when Terrance "Too Tall"
Farmer started bursting
through the line on off-tackle
runs time after time. Joe
Norton recovered a Pirate
fumble on their own six yard


The Shark defense Terrance Farmer (76) and David
Williams (71) put the hit on a Sneads runner.

Although some furbearing
animals, such as raccoons,
opossums, skunks, nutrias

year round, the best quality
pelts are taken during the
cooler months, according to
Frank Smith, Chief of the
Game and Fresh Water Fish
Commission's bureau of
wildlife management.
"To take furbearing ani-
mals for commercial pur-
poses with guns, live traps or
snares, a license to take
furbearers is required,"
Smith said. "The licenses are
available from county tax
collectors and their suba-
gents."
He said a regular hunting
license does not authorize the
taking of furbearers for sale,
nor does it authorize the use
of traps or snares. In addi-
tion, the use or possession of
steel or leg-hold traps is
strictly prohibited in Florida,
as is the use of set guns. Live
traps and snares must be
checked at least every 24
hours.-

For the second consecutive
year, the FAMU Baby Ratt-
lers have knocked the Wewa-
hitchka Gators out of a
chance to try for a state title
in 1-A football. The Rattlers
came out throwing in the
second half in Tallahassee
Friday night, to strike the
Gators with a 48-8 defeat. The
loss was only the second of
the season for the Gators,
who finished a sparkling
season with an 8-2 record,
losing their last two games of
the season.
- The Gators went into their
game doing what they do
best, running the football and
popping a surprise pass
every once in a while just tc
keep everybody honest. It
was one of these surprise
passes, when Billy Joe Smi-
ley connected with his favor-
ite target of the year, David
Paul on a 15 yard pass play
which gave the Gators an
early six point lead over the
Rattlers.
The six points stood for the
entire first period. Then with
only one minute gone in the
second period, Johnson scor-
ed on a one-yard plunge for
the Rattlers. Then, also in the
second period, the Rattlers
put together one of those long
ball possession drives, which
was capped by a five yard
dash by Dante Gilliam to
give the Rattlers the lead
which they would never


relinquish.
The Gators put their last
points on the board when
their defense had backed the
Rattlers up to their own two
yard line. FAMU lined up to
punt from their own end zone
and the snap from center
sailed over the kicker's head
and out of the end zone for a
Gator two points.
During the second half, the
Rattlers came out throwing
with deadly accuracy, con-
necting on 11 of 15 passes;
two of them for touchdowns.
In addition to the deadly
aerial attack, Dante Gilliam
broke loose on a 61 yard
scoring run off tackle and
then scored again in the last
period after a Gator fumble
set the Rattlers up in busi-
ness again.
After that first period, it
was just a matter of too much
FAMU muscle and too many
FAMU runners for the Ga-
tors; just like last year.
It was the first time of the
season that the tough Gator
running attack was held to
less than 100 yards gained.

Farmer was in the end zone
with the football tucked
under his arm.
But the Pirates put to-
gether another scoring drive
early in the final period,
making the score 27-14 and
just too much of a margin for
the Sharks to overcome.
Farmer was the leading
rusher of the game for the
Sharks with 75 yards on 15
carries. Wilder, who had to
leave the game early in the


second period, had 54 yards
on 17 carries. Ross Yowell
added 36 yards on six carries

Propagation of Houseplants Is Easy, Carter Says


Producing New Plants Usually Is Easily Accomplished by One of Four Different Methods


By Roy Lee Carter
Extension Agent
Wise house plant enthusi-
asts seek ways to expand
their collection, without
spending lots of money. One
way to increase your inven-
tory of house plants is
through propagation. This
simply means producing new
plants from existing ones.
There are four common ways


to propagate house plants
from seeds, from cuttings, by
division, and by layering.
Plant propagation is both
an enjoyable activity and a
way to get new plants at little
or no cost. In this article I
will talk about two methods,
propagation with seeds, and
propagation with cuttings.

cle was provided by Horticul-

ture specialist Dr. Robert
Black, of the University of
Florida's Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences.
Seed propagation is pro-
bably the least used tech-
nique, because it takes so
long to grow plants from
seeds, compared to other
methods. Also, many seed
propagated plants won't be
exactly like their parent
plant. Individual seedlings
from the same plant may
differ in shape, color, and
growth habit. Another disad-
vantage of the seed method is
that many house plants don't
flower indoors. Without flow-
ers, such plants won't pro-
duce viable seeds.
The most common, and
usually the most satisfacto-
ry, method of propagating
house plants is by using
cuttings. A cutting is a
portion of a plant which is
removed and rooted in its
own growing medium. Leaf
and stem cuttings are most
commonly used in house
plant propagation. Leaf cut-
tings can be used to propa-
gate African violets, begon-
ias, gloxinias, sansevierias,
and most succulents. There
are two types of leaf cuttings.
In one case, new plants grow

from the leaf tissue itself. In
the other, the roots and
shoots grow at the base of the
petiole, or stem.
To propagate sansevierias,
or snake plants, cut leaf
sections about three or four
inches long, and place each.
piece about an inch deep in
growing medium. Make sure
you keep the leaf sections


Medical insurance pay-
ments under Medicare can
be made in two ways either
directly to the doctor or
supplier, or directly to you,
the patient. If the payment is
made directly to the doctor
or supplier, it is called an
"assignment."
The assignment method of
payment can save you time
and money. Under this me-
thod, the doctor or supplier
agrees that his or her total
charge for the covered ser-
vice will be the charge
approved by the Medicare
carrier.
Medicare pays the doctor
or supplier 80 percent of the
approved charge after sub-
tracting any part of, the $75
annual deductible that you'
have not met. You are
responsible only for that part
of the $75 deductible that has
not been met, and for the
remaining 20 percent of the
approved-charge.
If payment is made direct-
ly to you, the doctor or
supplier can bill you for the


right side up. Roots and
shoots should form from
these leaf sections, and the
new shoots will emerge from
the soil. When each is three to
four inches long, cut off the
parent leaf section.
Fibrous rooted and rex
begonias can be propagated
by laying a plant leaf right
side up on a growing med-


actual charge even if it is
more than the amount ap-
proved by Medicare.
Each year doctors and
suppliers are given the op-
portunity to sign agreements
that make them "Medicare-
participating" doctors and
suppliers. If they do sign
such an agreement, it means
that they have agreed in
advance to accept assign-


ium. Before placing the leaf
on the growing surface,
make small cuts across the
larger veins on the under-
side, and use hairpins or wire
to hold the leaf in place on the
soil. Small plants will begin
to develop from these primaL-
ry veins in about two weeks.
Transplant the new shoots in
their own growing medium


ments on all Medicare
claims.
The names and addresses
of "Medicare-participating"
doctors' and suppliers are
listed in the "Medicare-par-
ticipating Physician-Supplier
Directory." The directory
may be reviewed at all Social
Security offices and at State
and area offices of the
Administration on Aging.,


when they reach a length of
two or three inches.
To propagate African vio-
lets and gloxinias, use the
entire leaf blade and about
an inch or two of the leaf
petiole. The petiole should be
placed in the rooting medium
deep enough for the leaf to
stand upright. But, try to
keep soil away from the leaf
itself. New growth will deve-
lop at the base of the leaf.
Almost all house plants


root well from stem cuttings.
Take cuttings four to six
inches long from vigorous,
healthy plants, place the
cuttings about an inch deep
in a sterile rooting medium.
Covering the propagating
containers with plastic bags
allows the plants to breathe,
but prevents loss of moisture.
So, if this method is used, the
cutting will need no addition-
al watering until they're
rooted.
