Industry-Deep Water Port-Fine People-Safest Beaches in Florida


City Street Department workers give an on-site inspection of the completed boat launch


facility on Fifth Street.


After Nearly, Four Years of Delay, Boat Launch Site Is Finished


At last, it's finished!
Workmen were winding down a
project of constructing a refurbished
boat launching facility at the west end
of Fifth Street this week, ending a
project which started in 1984, and is
now complete, except for theclean-up
of construction debris.
The project wasn't an especially
expensive one. The entire construction
had a price tag of $40,000 on it by the
time the work was done.: reparation
for building was another matter
altogether.


The launch site, previously built
of wood, had been in place for many
years. The City had a continuous
maintenance problem with the launch
slip, which relied on wet sand, rip-rap
and shells for stability and on the
wooden docks, which were continually
in need' of 'repair from rot and
damage.
After a storm in 1983 demolished a
portion of the wooden walkway
alongside the launch slip for yet
another time, the City decided to
replace the facility with a steel piling


and concrete structure to give some,
stability to the physical property and
to eliminate some of the maintenance
expense. i
Obstructions by the Department
of Natural Resources, the Depart
ment of Environmental Regulation
and the Corps of Engineers put up
delay after delay in front of the City,
which was requesting the necessary ..
permits to repair an existing facility .
in a maintenance-free manner.
Finally, during the Spring of last, ,
**ct-^iL' -'" *_ ,p<-" 'lnn**i i 1- .- -* 4^t ,


year, the last permit was received.
The Corps of Engineers finally
approved the type facility the City
was wanting to build and gave its
signal to proceed with plans and
construction.
Actual construction on the project
got under way in November of last
year, when a Lynn Haven firm
presented the low bid to do the job.
Clerk Alden Farris said Tuesday
of this week the construction firm had
finished its job except for cleaning up


the area and a little groundskeeping
work to be done. "The launch site and
docks are finished", Farris said.

What made the launch site of such
extreme importance is that it is one of
only three places along the 20 mile St.
Joseph Bay shoreline where sports-
men can launch a boat into the bay
and the only public ramp available to
boaters. The other two launch sites
are Presnell's Landing at Simmons
Bayou, a commercial operation and a.
launch site in St. Joseph State Park on


the peninsula at the other side of the
bay.
iDespite its poor condition, the
local ramp was extremely popular
with boaters and it is expected to
become more popular now that it has
been put into first class condition.
The newly refurbished ramp is
wide enough to allow the launching of
two boats at one time and has an
easily accessible concrete walkway
and tie-up stations on both sides of the
waterway for loading and unloading
gear and people from boats.


Burglaries Are Real C6unty Problem
Bu ^.c^ *l A blem ;'*


Burglaries are a real prob-
lem in Gulf County at the
present time; especially in
the out-lying areas outside


incorporated communities.
Chief Deputy Mikei White
told The Star this week that a
rash of burglaries still are


un-solved in the St. Joe
Beach-Beacon Hill area, as
well as other isolated por-
tions of the county.


Posters Discourage Drug Use


The Gulf County Veterans Service
Office and the Veterans of Foreign Wars
joined in promoting the theme "Say NO to
drugs" which is currently being promoted in
Gulf County Schools by the school system
and the Sheriff's Department.
This week, the two veteran supported
organizations presented a series of posters
to both Port St. Joe and Wewahitchka High
Schools which urge students to resist the
temptation to experiment with drugs.


The posters, of various sizes, are
colorful reminders of the dangers of doing
drugs or participating in their distribution.

In the photo above, Veterans Service
Officer, Jim Sealey presents a package of
the posters to assistant principal Helen
Ramsey of Port St. Joe High School and
Pricipal E. L. Eubanks of Wewahitchka,
accepts a packet from Bill Schlickman of
the VFW.


"Hardly anyone is missing
anything of real value",
White said. "In one instance,
we had a quantity of jewelry
taken, but the thieves left
more than they took. Now
and then a television set, a
microwave oven or some
other appliance is taken, but
, in almost every instance the,
burglars have rifled the
medicine chests, indicating
they are hunting anything
they can find to get a buzz
on".
White said the burglaries
are becoming a real problem
in that they are a real
nuisance to the property
owners and to the Sherift's
Department. "The big prob-


lem is, I don't know how we
can itop it until the people
wholive in the areas begin to
stay on the alert and call us
whep they see anything sus-
picious", White said. "If
people would just call us
wheb they see anyone loiter-
ing around, a strange car
cruising the area or anything
which is out of the ordinary.
If they would just take down
a license tag number or two,
it would be a big help in
stop ping all these break-ins."
W ite said there have been
six break-ins in the St. Joe
Bea -Beacon Hill area dur-
ing the past six to eight
months. "We made an arrest,
of twb girls in the Highland

Dead Man Found

In Highland View

A young juvenile, riding his three-wheeler in a wooded
area east of Highland View Friday afternoon, came upon
the body of Warren A. Ford, 47, seated inside his pick-up
truck.
Ford's truck was stuck in a bog. He had been reported
missing by his employer, Kirk's Ice Company Tuesday of
last week when he didn't report for work and couldn't be
found.
According to Sheriff Al Harrison, Ford was inside his
truck, slumped over the steering wheel, dead. Indications
were that he had been working trying to extricate his truck
from the bog where it was stuck.
Sheriff Harrison said there were no signs of foul play,
but an autopsy was performed by the Medical Examiners
office, which showed Ford had died of asphyxiation.


View area which we think
solved one of the thefts and
solved eight or nine Bay
county burglaries. We ar-
rested two juvenile boys in
the Burgess Creek area
which we feel solved 11
burglaries there and in the
Dalkeith vicinity and recov-
ered some $15,000 in stolen
property in the process, but
that doesn't solve all the
problem", he said.
The burglars seem to move
around, according to White.
They may be hitting the Cape
San Bias area this week, the
St. Joe Beach area another,
then Overstreet, then Jones
Homestead. "There's no rou-
tine and it seems to be a
number of people doing the
thefts, rather than an organ-
ized group of gang", accord-
ing to the Chief Deputy.
White said the thieves will
break a window or pry open a
door to gain entry. "Two of
the thefts at St. Joe Beach
were pulled off during the
daytime and nobody knows
what time of day the others
were done", he pointed out.
From the methods of the
burglaries, White said they
seem to watch a dwelling to
gain knowledge of the habits
of the inhabitants or else they
know their victims and their
habits.
"It's a hard matter to cope
with and we can use all the
help we can get in stopping
the thefts before someone
gets hurt", White pointed
out.


Chimney Catches Fire
Fire caused only superficial damage to the home of
Mr. and Mrs. Tim Kennedy on Woodward Avenue last
Wednesday evening, according to Fire Chief Brent
Etheridge.
The fire was discovered at about 7:00 p.m., in a
fireplace chimney, but had been smothered out by the time
the Fire Department arrived on the scene. Etheridge said
no cause for the blaze was determined at the time, except
that it was confined to insulation which surrounded a flue
pipe inside the chimney.
In the photo above, two firemen inspect the chimney to
make sure the fire is completely out prior to leaving the
scene.


Rep. Trammell Offers Sympathetic Ear to A Variety of Issues


Not too many people showed up
Monday night in the Courthouse to
meet with State Representative Rob-
ert Trammell, but those who did, ran
across a sympathetic ear for their
concerns about state government and
how it was affecting the Gulf County
vicinity.
Concerns ranged from, why isn't
the Dead Lakes Dam already gone to
how those present felt about paying
taxes to provide welfare support for
"those who won't work".
Larry Hatcher, one of those
present, was concerned over recent
suggestions that the proposed state
lottery income should be used for
something other than financing edu-
cation needs. "Is the money going to


needs of education or not?" Hatcher
asked.
Trammell responded by saying,
"The lottery was sold to the voters on
the basis that the money would go for
education, although there is no
stipulation in the law which would
require it." Trammell said, that while
he did not favor the lottery and its
passage, he would be in favor of
seeing that all income from the
system be turned over to educational
needs as it had been presented to the
people. "If it provides more money
than education needs, then perhaps
some of the money can be used to
reduce local school taxes".
Bill Davis of Dalkeith expressed a
belief that the state and county should


be working prisoners in order to
recover some of the $30.00 per day
expense of keeping them in jail. "It
would help the tax payer and the
prisoner if he had to work for some of
his upkeep", Davis said.
Trammell said the present treat-
ment had been mandated by federal
courts in past years, but noted that
"things are beginning to change" in
this respect. He noted that almost
every federal judge appointed by
President Reagan is of a conservative
nature, "most of whom believe like we
do here in northwest Florida", he
said.
Gulf County Commissioner Billy
Branch observed that this was


already beginning to happen in Gulf
County. "Sheriff Al Harrison has
already worked out a work program
'where the prisoners are used for
different tasks on county roads at a
considerable savings to the county",
he pointed odt.
Jimmy Rogers of Wewahitchka
complained of the state practice of
purchasing swamp lands and then
removing it from public use. "I have
made my living all my life logging in
the swamp", he said. "The state is
putting me out of business, buying up
all the swamp land and then telling us
loggers to stay out".
This subject led to the emotional
subject of hunting land availability.
Representative Trammell said,


"You're going to see a real tight-
ening up of people going onto other
people's lands to hunt", he said. "A
part of this is being caused by
irresponsible hunters who damage
other people's lands when they hunt",
he said.
Others complained over having to
purchase hunting permits last season
from Southwest Forest Industries,
last year, to hunt on property which
had been sold to the State of Florida.
it also brought on an accusation that
the Game Commission wasn't wisely
managing the public hunt areas which
were now in operation. Curtis Ham-
mond said the size and number of deer
and turkeys were not near what they
should be.


Then, Hatcher ended the meeting
by asking, "What can we do about the
Dead Lakes Dam? We have voted
overwhelmingly to have it removed,
but it's still there. What can we as
citizens do about the situation?"

Trammell retorted, "When 77
percent of the people of Gulf and
Calhoun counties say take it out, I
don't know how much more emphatic
you can be. I don't know what you can
do which would carry more weight
with public officials. Presently, the
matter is in court ." The
Representative expressed the opinion.
that elected officials should have
listened to the opinion of the people as
expressed by the ballot.

Some might take the County
Commission's action of last Tues-
day as a unilateral rebuff of new
.Commissioner Nathan Peters' at-
fempts at writing letters on county
stationery. But, such was not the
case.
: While Peters was acting in',
ignorance of County policy when he
:used county stationery to write a
couple of letters where he wanted
Jto capitalize on the weight of his
position as a County Commission-
ier, he did not speak for the Board
.as a whole and should not have
,been using the stationery.
The position of the Board which
is legitimized by being put into
,writing can only be that position
'agreed on by a majority of the
:Board, whether it be by a 5-0 vote
:or a 3-2 vote. What's written down
:is given the position of the prestige
:of the entire Board. Thus, no
,individual Commissioner has the
.privilege of passing off his opinions
:as those of the entire Commission
.without their concurrence.
To vindicate Peters' actions
'somewhat, we must point to the
fact that Clerk Benny Lister didn't
Know the Board policy in the


The Rig/

We see where Department of
,Natural Resources head, Dr. Elton
iGissendaner has handed in his
-resignation just before a majority
Qf the Cabinet fired him.
, There are very few in this area
Jho will shed many tears over
~e action, even though there are
tone among us who delight, in
seeing a person without a job.
r We acknowledge the fact that
9r. Gissendaner was faced with
some tough decisions to make in his
career with the DNR. Many of
those decisions had to be made in
spite of the disgruntled citizens the
decisions produced. We recognize
ihat fact.
i We don't have to accept the
nature with which Dr. Gissendaner
apparently made his decisions on
some of the matters in Gulf County.
Even though the DNR chief is
]appointed, he was appointed to
protect our state for the people.
This action was supposed to make
the people happy that their natural
resources were being protected.
3But, when one of its minions says,
"'You'll not put dredge spoil here
because I don't want you to put it
here", or our most famous local


matter, either. He had been in the
Clerk's office long enough to know
the implication of writing on county
stationery, but had never heard the
policy stated. So, he asked.
In defense of the policy, if the
Board did not have such a policy,
any or all five of the Commission-
ers could write letters on county
stationery, agreeing to controver-
sial situations, entering into con-
tracts for the county, hiring and
firing, setting policy, making final
decisions, and the like, which
would all be taken as official
decisions because they were writ-
ten on legal documents. If such
were the case, we would be better
served by dis-banding the County
Commission and everybody do as
he pleased in relation to county
government.
There is a reason-a very good
reason-for the letterhead policy.
It is a policy which does not affect
only Commissioner Peters. It af-
fects every member of the Com-
mission; even the chairman at the
time, whomever he may be.
It's an important policy and
one which needs protecting and
continuing at all costs.

after thinking about it for a
minute or two.
"Me I'm going to be a,

Buddy, who had trouble


passing clay modeling,

Bobby wiped the sweat off of
his face and said, "I'm going

Where Was It Ever Writt


I TOOK ONE OF those flying trips
to a meeting of Florida and Georgia
)erox sales agents held in Tampa last
)Friday. It was sort,of a spur-of-the-
moment decision td go. After being
reminded of the meeting by the
districtt sales representative out of
-Tallahassee, Tuesday, he asked if I
wvas going. I decided on Wedesday
morning, I would take the meeting in
and set about trying to make
arrangements for transportation and
. place to stay.
I got a seat on a Piedmont carrier
pigeon out of Tallahassee at 2:00 p.m.,
I'hursday and called back home at
3:10, telling everyone I had got there
)OK and was safely in my hotel room at
the Embassy Suites, which is about 10
ninutes from the airport, and where
:the meeting was going to be held.
Before you start envying me a of a
:"plush" business trip, paid for by
iXerox and a night on the town, let me
'tell you, I never got the chance to even
igo outside at the hotel until we started
.:back to the airport for the trip home at

ETA(OIN SHRDLU

I By: Wesley R. Ra


THE EMBASSY SUITES isn't
your ordinary hotel, although it has
typical central Florida rates.
It was built in the architecture of
old Florida-beige stucco with white
trimmed windows-using Florida tro-
pical plant life lavishly.
The building was a square of
rooms built around an arboretum
courtyard which featured a twisting
brook tumbling the length of the yard,
where two huge swans had the run of


Man Should Own His Own Boat?


HlE MANAGER OF- the Talla-
e zone is one of the sharpest men
e ever met. He is a huge black
on the order of a New York
s' tackle. Leon Harris stands


msey


Of course, it wasn't outdoors. Up
nine stories above were two huge
skylights which covered the entire
courtyard, letting in sunlight.
The doors to all the two room
suites, which made up the hotel, faced
the arboretum and were made of glass
on the style of French doors to allow
guests an unfettered view of the
palms, shrubs, corn plants, trees and
the parrot which kept his perch all the'
time I was there.


about six foot, six and weighs about
240. But he is a jolly man: a fine
conversationalist and who is sharp as
a tack. Leon was raised in Lynn
Haven and spent some time in the
Army Intelligence Service, stationed
in Thialand.
As you would guess, he is a very
interesting man to talk to.
Thursday night, I had supper with
Leon and three other Xerox division
representatives. Leon and I called it


"supper", but the other three called it
"dinner".
We ate in that arboretum at the
hotel and had a fine meal and some
fine conversation.
I learned something unique about
Xerox zone managers. They all either
own a boat, or they are planning to
buy one.
There was one zone manager, one
Frank Gomez, from Miami. He is a
handsome Latin with full black hair,
which is delicately greying above the
ears. Frank was the authority on
boats.
Then there was Leon, who lives in
Tallahassee and was just before
plunking down 15,000 big ones on his
dream boat, when his wife happened
upon the transaction and "persuad-
ed" him to buy something "more
sensible".
Then there was the 28-year-old
bachelor Tom Merrick of Savannah,
who said he didn't own a boat yet.
He was looking at a 22-foot inboard.
And Al Nagel of Orlando was sort of
middle aged, like Leon and I, and he
said he would like to have a boat, but


his kids were all the extra motivation
he could afford at the present time.

THE ONE THING I enjoyed most
about the evening Thursday and the
day, Friday, spent in Tampa, was that
when the meal was served Thursday,
these men, who live largely out of
suitcases, without anyone having to
suggest it, bowed their heads to say
grace over the meal. The day wasn't a
constant fight avoiding drunks or
lushes. It was a time to discuss the
issues, come to an agreement and
have an enjoyable day rather than a
day of boozing it up and trying to
remember what happened later on.
I have been to enough of these
"meetings" to almost have the
opinion the only reason they happened
was to get away from home, let your
hair down and get stiffed.
Since I have been a Xerox agent,
for about three years, this is one of the
things I admire about its people. When
they have another regional sales
meeting, I have already made up my
mind to go. It's a pleasure to do
business in that manner.

the future. I look back on it
now and find it most inter-
esting that we didn't mention
money. I'm sure that money
was important to us back
then but I reckin it wasn't
important enough to set
around and talk about.
Listen, Bobby Brewer didn't
want to raise coon dogs
'cause he thought he was go-
ing to get rich doing it. And I
would have played with the
St. Louis Cardinals for
nothing. I just wanted to be
standing on second base in
old Busch Stadium and have
Mr. Musial hit one off the
screen in right and drive me
in with the winning run. Of
course Stan retired at age 42
in 1963 when I was a sopho-
more in high school. I try to
look back at it realistically
and tell myself that I would
have had a difficult time
making the big leagues when
I was in the ninth grade.
All of this money and base-
ball stuff comes to mind this
morning as I read about Don
Mattingly of the New York
Yankees being awarded
$1,975,000.00 in salary arbi-
tration. That's $1,975,000.00
to play baseball for one year.
Now, that's O.K. by me. And
I don't begrudge him one
penny of what he's making.
I'm even happy for him. But
he ain't worth, it. I don't
rightly see how anybody
could he worth that kind of
money. I love baseball but it
kind'a takes a little away
from the game for me to see
the players fighting so for
the money. Shucks, if Don
had lost in arbitration he
would have had to get by on a
measly $1,700,000.00 the.
Yankees were offering to
pay him. You'd think the
money was more important
than playing big league
baseball.
Stan Musial was the
greatest baseball player that
ever played, period. The
most he ever made in any
season was one hundred
thousand, but I know in my
heart he would have played
for nothing. Stan was our
kind of guy.
I guess what I'm trying to
say here today is that some
folks in America cmt o
some strange things if
they've got a little money.
My Dad was the hardest
working man I've ever
known and he didn't come
close to making a million
dollars in his whole lifetime.
He was also the greatest
man I've ever known and we
had the happiest family in
the entire history of the
known world. Maybe this
money thing is over-rated.
Listen, I'm kind'a thankful
that money didn't play much
of a part in the lives of the
boys of the sock baseball
league in the summer of '57.
We didn't let it get in the way
of us having a good time.
By the way, today, Ricky

Department for the State of
North Carolina, last I heard

Wit of A Sportsman
AS SOME OF YOU are now aware, my article was
not published in last weeks paper. I wrote one but our
editor decided to edit it slightly. He threw it in the trash
can!
No one told me four letter words were
unacceptable.
ONE GOOD THING about having friends that write
is you can always use some of their material when you
run short. While I'm trying to condense the article I
wrote last week to acceptable standards, I thought you
might enjoy some of the wit and wisdom of my friend,
Charley Dickey.
Charley is the professional writer who lives in
Tallahassee and specializes in hunting and fishing. He

Gulf County schools will be
closed down February 26 and
27, and students will have a
two-day vacation, according
to the office of Superinten-
dent of Schools, Walter Wil-
der.
The schools are being
closed in order to allow
teachers to attend one of four
in-service sessions they must
attend each year. Wilder's
office said all teachers will
be involved in the in-service
operation, which will require
the instructors to attend one
of the centers in the Pan-
handle, which will be dealing
with their particular field of
instruction.
The in-service periods are
required by the state of

Seafood Becommg More Georgia Fugitive Last Week

Popular and More Costly


"The fishing industry is maturing;
especially in the marketing end",
Gene Raffield, manager of Raffield
Fisheries told the Kiwanis Club
Tuesday at their regular meeting.
"Where we once sold prepared
seafood in five pound plain boxes,
packers now market the same seafood
in one pound packages, with art-work
on the outside which is pleasing to the
eye and are selling much more
product", Raffield said.
The seafood operator told the club
members that consumption of seafood
in the United States is growing. "With
the increased demand, an increase in
price is making seafood an expensive
food rather than the inexpensive table
fare it once was". The speaker also
pointed out that improvements in
freezing methods will allow producers
to freeze seafood for preservation in a


manner which will ntot deteriorate its
taste or quality. "It's hard to tell a
piece of frozen fish from strictly fresh
fish anymore", Raffield said. He
pointed out that approximately 94
percent of all seafood is now frozen for
preparation, to be presented to the
market place.
Locally, Raffield said the introduc-
tion of a packing operation at the
Raffield plant has allowed the firm to
rent out approximately half of a huge
new freezer operation they have built.
The action has improved the fiscal
position of Raffield S .and has meant
employment of approximately 40
people in the Port St. Joe area. "The
operation packs and ships anDroxi-
mately 300,000, to 400,000 pounds of
seafood per month.
The speaker said a firm is now


experimenting with marketing pond-
grown catfish in the Gulf and Calhoun
county areas. "We now have about 30
acres under cultivation and are
making plans for,approximately 150
acres more by a small corporation we
are interested in. We'll harvest the
fish at about one and a half pounds
each and see how it goes", he said.
The state of Mississippi, the leading
catfish producing state in the nation,
produced 200 million pounds of the
product last year. "We produced only
20 million pounds of mullet in the
entire United States last year, to give
you an idea of the size of the gFowing
catfish industry", he said.
Guests of the club were Key
Clubbers Sherry Creel, Liz Duncan,
Carl White and Jason Hammac, and
Rev. Elmer Braden.

Special Food Program Available far


Pregnant Women,


A three month effort to
inform pregnant women
about its Special Supplemen-
tal Food Program for Wom-
.en, Infants and Children,
called WIC, is being launched
by the Department of Health
and Rehabilitative Services
(HRS).
"Radio and television pub-
lic service announcements
will be aired during Febru-
ary, March and April," said
Ann Rhode, Florida WIC
Program administrator,
"and 150,000 posters and
brochures are being distribu-
ted."
WIC is a federally support-
ed health program that pro-
vides high-nutrition foods to
pregnant women, women
who recently have given
birth, breastfeeding women,
infants and children up to age
five. The campaign focuses
on enrolling more pregnant
women.
"OQly 13 percent of our
participants are pregnant
women," Rhode said. "We
want to increase that to at
least. 17 percent. Pregnant
women especially need the
foods and nutrition education
provided by the WIC Pro-
gram because good nutrition
during pregnancy improves
their chances of delivering
healthy babies."
WIC participants receive
checks for use at authorized
grocery stores to buy specific
foods. These include milk,
cheese, eggs, cereal and fruit
juice, all foods that supply
important nutrients such as
protein, calcium, iron and
-vitamin C.
WIC is a free program.
Applicants must meet in-
come guidelines and be ex-


amined by a doctor, nurse or
nutritionist to determine if
they have a special nutrition-
al need for the WIC foods.
Standards for participation


Infants, (

f His dedication and love for

that the whites in his home
congregation were alarmed
by the great. number of
converts he was bringing into
the church. This led to an

control over their local af-
fairs; 3, that Absalom Jones
be licensed as layreader, and
if qualified, be ordained as
priest.
Bishop White quickly
agreed, and St. Thomas'
Church was admitted into the
diocese. In 1795 Jones was
ordained deacon and in 1804
he was ordained priest.
Accomplishments of this
caliber would be impressive
in any age. But they were
especially impressive in an
age when almost everyone
thought that black people
. were chattel, and not intelli-
gent enough to be educated.
What made the tremen-
dous success of Absalom
Jones possible? In my opin-
ion, Jones was able to
understand and use the sys-
tem to his advantage.
In spite of the beliefs of
both the whites and blacks of
his age, he believed that he
could learn, and learn he did.
By listening to white men
read the Bible, and by
memorizing words, lines,
and pages he taught himself
to read. Later, in Philadel-
phia, he took advantage of
his spare time and enrolled in
a night school. He broadened
his knowledge, mastered his
native language, and ab-
sorbed the culture in which
he lived.
When faced with adversity,
he did not hang his head and
give up. He used his know-
ledge for his own advantage,
and for the advantage of
others. He stayed within the
system and made it work for
his goals.

Outlook
WHAT CHIROPRACTORS
TREAT
Chiropractic is concern-
ed with the relationship
between the spine and ner-
yous system as an in-
fluence on the preserva-
tion of health. Billions of
nerves criss-cross the
spinal structure, carrying
vital nerve impulses from
-the brain to every body
'part' misplacement of
one or more spinal verte-
brae can irritate or cause
pinching pressure that in-
terferes with normal nerve
function,
Chiropractors correct
bone sibluxation or mis-
alignr ents producing
nerve pressures with gen-
tie manipulation, without
drugs.,
According to the science
of chiropractic, all
systems and bodily pro-
cesses are controlled and
coordinated by the ner-
vous system. Spinal sub-
luxatio s can interfere
with this function, bring-
ing on subclinical or un-
noticed symptoms.
Regular chiropractic care
helps build better health.

Sharks Lose Two Games


It was a bleak week for the
Sharks basketball, as they
added two losses to their
schedule, pushing their re-
cord down to 8-12 for the
year.
HAVANA, 62; PSJ, 56
The Havana Gladiators,
who were such an easy mark
for the football team earlier
in the school year, were
another story on the rotnd-
ball court.. The Gladiators
nipped the Sharks by six
points last Friday night, as
they took a 62-56 win on their
home court.
Port St. Joe kept the game
nip and tuck all the way--
even taking a one point lead
into the half time rest
period-before the Gladia-
tors put on a last quarter
splurge to get their win.
Curtis Beard was nearly
back on his pace Friday
night, as he led the Sharks
with 19 points. Darrin Calla-
way added 15 and Carlos
Julius slipped 10 markers
through the nets.
Michael Price led the Glad-
iators with 18 points and
Stargell Williams helped
with his 15. The two combin-
ed their efforts in the Gladia-
tors last quarter charge
toward the win for their
team.
Score by Quarters:
Port St. Joe 12 14 14 16-56

As the students in Mrs.
Anchors' fifth and sixth
grade classes were asking
others to be their "Valen-
tine", they took a moment to
write what love meant to
them. Perhaps as you read
their thoughts, you will
agree with them that true
love is really special.
Love means to me when I
do things with my sister
when she doesn't have any-
thing to do. Steve Ailes
Love is when your friend
needs someone to talk with
and you give up time to talk
things over with them and
then they feel better. That's
what love is. Kelly Burkett
To me love is holding
hands, silly notes, puppy
love, mushy stuff, giving
flowers and chocolate, but
most of all it's caring, giving
and not taking. David Clark
Love is caring and sharing
and when my parents come
home, they show that they
love me a lot. Sometimes
they may punish me, but they
will always care. Kim Cooper
Love is a great feeling your
parents give to you. Love is a
great feeling that others give
you too.
Love is a great feeling that
you really like.
Love is a great feeling that
a dog feels when it wags its
tail. Clay Cox
Love means to me having
a nice family. Jon Elliott
I think love means to share
and care, to understand how
a person feels when she's
down. I think that love is a
special thing. I think that
people feel good when they're
loved. Kiki Fields
Love is when my Grandma
is tired and I'm sick and she
still makes my food and gives
-.I. to- me and brings me
something to read or color.
Faye Gilbert
Love means to care for
someone and share feelings
or thoughts or be kind to one
another. Love means just the
opposite of hate. I think love
is a special kind of feeling
you have down deep inside.
Love means to care for sick
people that you care for.
Christina Coggins
Love means to me being
nice to people and caring for
them when they need it. Love


is something that makes you
feel good. Love is a thing I
like. Love is when my mother
gives me food and when my
sister is feeling bad and I try
to get her well. When my
friend gives me some of their
break and I thank them.
That's love to me. Kendall
Hogue
What love means to me is
when my sister hits me and I
don't hit her back. Melissa
Hagan
Love means family, friend-
ship, happiness, caring, shar-
ing, telling your elders or
loved ones you love them and
letting people know they
aren't left out. Helping my
mom clean the house before
she asks me, helping and
staying with my, grandma,
helping new people feel com-
fortable when they're new at
school, helping friends when
they're sad, and helping
neighbors when they ask you.
Crystal Kennington
I love my friend and I like
to play and I like to play with
my sister and play with my
other friend up north, too,
and get to know everybody.

Judy Campbell has been
appointed Chairman for the
annual "Wheels for Life"
Bike-A-Thon in Port St. Joe.
The event is scheduled for
April 4, 1987, with a rain date
of April 11,, 1987. This. ride
will benefit St. Jude Child-
ren's Research Hospital.
St. Jude Children's Hospi-
tal is a research-treatment-
education center where phy-
sicians and scientists work-
ing side by side have actually
succeeded in rewriting medi-
cal textbooks through pain-
staking research and treat-
ment advances.
' This institution, now the
largest childhood cancer re-
search center in America,
owes its establishment to a
promise made years ago by
entertainer, Danny Thomas.
His dream became a reality
when the doors of this
non-sectarian research hos-
pital opened in 1962 dedicated
solely to the conquest of
hopeless diseases of children.
When St. Jude Hospital
accepted its first patient, the
survival rate for children
diagnosed with acute lym-
phocytic leukemia was less
than five percent. Today, the
disease-free survival figure
for -children in long-term
remission has grown to more
than 50 percent. Procedures
that originated at St. Jude
are now being used to treat
children throughout the Uni-
ted States and other parts of
the world.

St. Jude
search Hospital has treated
children from 39 states and 29 .
foreign countries. Upon re-
ferral from their physician
they are admitted to a
research study without re-
gard to race, creed, national
origin, or ability to pay. The
sole criterion is a medical
determination that their dis-
ease is under study. They
receive the very best and
latest total medical care
because it is through these
children that we will learn
how to save others.
St. Jude Hospital is largely
supported by voluntary con-
tributions which are tax
deductible. Events such as
the "Wheels for Life" bike
ride raise the funds to
continue the research and
treatment programs which
are freely shared with all
physicians and research
scientists, extending the
benefits of its work beyond
its walls to children through-
out the world.
