Landfill Permit Being Approved for Gulf County

DER Says Permission Slip Will be Available Monday for Operation of Class III Facility for Solid Waste
..14 (' it ,, T .. mi.- ^ t' l._ ^l in .. i .L i I .r


UUl lUountIILy muosquiU to UontrolUI
Director, Sam Graves, told the County
Commission Tuesday night, the De-
partment of Environmental Regula-
tion has said it will be issuing a permit
to operate a Class III landfill in the
edge of the Ed Ball Game Reserve
Area on Monday of next week.
The County has been attempting
to secure a permit to operate a Class
III permit ever since its new solid
waste transfer station was put into use
more than a year ago, but the implied
expense of operation had almost
caused the county to back down.
In a conciliatory move, the DER
has agreed to relax some of the
requirements for the burial pit, which
would accept only organic waste
material such as tree limbs, construc-
tion debris and other like material.
The permit was at a standstill two
weeks ago because of a difference in
interpretation of requirements for
cover over the filled solid waste cell.
County administrative assistant,
Larry Wells says his office still has
nothing on the permit, other than they
have been assured of a quick response
to the county's application for a
permit.
Graves said his office has receiv-
ed the statement a permit would be
issued Monday.
WANTS HIGHWAY PAVED
Commissioner Nathan Peters,


Jr., suggested u e county take drastic
measures to get the state to re-surface
Highway 71 from Cypress Creek,
south to White City. "It's in dangerous
condition", Peters said.
The freshman commissioner then
made a motion that the county block
all traffic on this section of the
north-south highway artery into the
Port St. Joe area and detour the
traffic around this section of highway.
Peters received no second for his
motion.
Commissioner A. B. Traylor
mused, "We don't have that authority
over a state road, do we?"
Peters answered, "I know we
don't, but I'm just making my motion
to get the attention of the DOT to the
seriousness of the problem".
DOT had announced last year it
had placed resurfacing of this section
of Highway 71 on its priority list to be
included in the budget the department
is operating under now. So far,
though, there hasn't been any action
to get the project under way.
FLOOD ORDINANCES
Building Department director,
Dewayne Manuel in effect told the
Commission Tuesday night they had
waited as long as they safely can to
take action on a flood ordinance
document which is required by the
State of Florida. The ordinance is one'
of those which the state has said it will


provide if me county does not do it Shearer be his replacement and the
themselves. Commission agreed to the suggestion.
When Manuel said the proposal -Received a notice from the

version of theordinance which would
set standards, for flood insurance,
contain certain contractor require-
ments. "Coming up with an ordinance
which will meet state requirements is
going to cause us some problems",
Manuel said.
The Commission has historically
side-stepped the issue of zoning in the
county, electing to allow the market-
place and property values to do any
needed zoning.
A workshop was scheduled by the,,
Commission for Monday at 6:00 p.m.,
Port St. Joe time.
OTHER BUSINESS
In other business items, the
Commission:
-Accepted the resignation of A.
O.Boyette, as director of the Beaches
and Highland View water districts.
Boyette's resignation is effective
March 15. He said he was resigning
because he was going to be in
Tallahassee each week in order to
help his son in a business he is opening
there. Boyette recommended Gerald


kerville-Donovan Engineers, to come
up with an estimate for preparing a
grant request for funds to develop the
park property at Dead Man's Curve
Qn C-30. Rish said state money was
available in a 75-25 match,. but he
didn't know what the expense would
be in making the application.


-Agreed to a suggestion by
Chairman Billy Branch to construct a
public boat launching site at the new
county park at White City on the
Intracoastal Canal. The work would
be done. by county crews and
financing would be from the county
share of the state boating funds.


200 Haven't Claimed Exemptions

Filing Deadline Is Monday Afternoon at 5:00 P.M.


Approximately 200 of Gulf Coun-
ty's estimated 2,883 homesteads still
have not filed for their exempt status
under Florida law, according to Iris
Garland, an assistant in the Property
Appraiser's office-spid-Wednesdayr- -
According to Garland, these .200
homesteads will be forced' .to pay
county ad valorem taxes on their
property, if they do not apply for their
homestead exemption by 5:00 p.m.,'
Monday afternoon.
Garland said the deadline for
filing for the exemption is March 1,
but that since the deadline falls on a.
Sunday, the cut-off time has been
extended by Property Appraiser
Kesley Colbert for the extra day.
The Appraiser's assistant said the
office mailed out notices alerting
home owners of their reed to apply for
their exemption back in the first week
of January. "We mailed out final


notices just last week and people are
mostly ignoring them", Garland said.

property from taxes up to $25,000 in
-value -n-Gu4i9Gpl ty, -this -savings
could run as high -as $$75 if the
property lies within an incorporated
community.
"A person must claim his own
exemption, under the law", Garland
said. "If they fail to do so, we have no,
alternative but to place them on the
non-exempt rolls where they will have
taxes levied on the full value of their
property".
Florida law also provides that
home owners must personally apply'
for this exemption every'year in order
to keep the status of ownership of a
particular piece of property up to.

it easy for home owners to register for


their exemptions, by notifying them
by card of'a need to re-new. The
homeowner may just. sign the card?
and return it to the Appraiser's office-
in order to stay on the exempt rolls.'

be other home owners out there, whb

are eligible for the exemption status
this year who have' not applied. l
If a property owner did not
receive the exemption card, it might
be well for them to call the
Appraiser's office just to make sure
his exemption notice has not been lost
or misplaced.
After the close of business at the
Courthouse on Monday, the opportun-
ity to file for exemption for the
current tax year will have passed. {


City Asks

For Fifth

St. Paving
The City of Port St. Joe
agreed to make an official
request to have Fifth Street
re-paved inside the city
limits at their meeting
Tuesday night.
Commissioner James
Roberts suggested that
Mayor Frank Pate make
the application with the
state Department of Trans-
portation which would have
the responsibility to pave
the street, which is also
Highway 71.
Roberts said it would
probably take at least five
years to get the project
started.
The City will request the
state do the street over in
concrete.


Telephone Co. Moves


Into Space

St. Joseph Telephone and Telegraphis entering the
newest stage of telephone service, as'workmen are
nearing the end of an installation project to place,
,underground cable for long distance service.,
According- to Tim Griffin, assistant general
manager of the system, with headquarters here in Port
St. Joe, the firm is in the process of laying modern,
state-of-the-art fiber optic cables to connect the local
central office with the rest of the world, using the new
cables and laser beams to replace the old lines strung
on poles and the now comparatively obsolete
micro-wave towers.
"These new lines can carry up to 16,000 voice
communications on one line", Griffin said. The St.
Joseph firm is installing cables for long distance
connections which contain six of the new spun glass
cables. Griffin said the firm will use two of the cables,
maintain two for a spare and leave the other two cables
for future growth.
Early last year, the company installed the new
cables from Mexico Beach to Tyndall Air Force Base.
The project now under construction will extend the new
long distance service capability from Port St. Joe to
Southern Bell's long distance service at Tyndall Air


Age Lines

Force Base. "This stretch of the service will be
completed in April", Griffin said.
The new cable is also heading north, with cable
presently being laid between Wewahitchka and
Blountstown. "It'll be sometime in June or July before
this leg is completed", Griffin said.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN?
What does all this expenditure by the company
mean to the subscriber here in Port St. Joe who wants
to call grandmother up in Georgia or a son stationed in
Germany?
"One thing the new lines will furnish is a much
higher quality of sound", Griffin said. He pointed out
that virtually all background noise will be removed
from your telephone set when calling long distance.
Again, the higher capacity of the new fiber-optic lines
will allow for easier access to the long distance lines.
With the new capacity, there is very little likelihood
circuits would be busy when you wish to make a call, no
matter what time of the day or night.
How does it work? We don't know. Somehow or
other, they coax a tiny laser beam light to carry your
voice along that tiny glass filament wire to someone at
the other end.


Firemen put water on a burning late stroyed in just a few minutes by fire
model car which was completely de- Friday night.


Suspicious Blaze Destroys

Late Model Car Friday Nite


A fire completely destroyed a 1985
Camaro under suspicious circumstances
late Friday night, according to Police
Lieutenant James Graves.
The car, owned by Glenda Sewell of
Hosford, was parked in front of the home
of her brother, Garnette Pullam at 1301
McClellan Avenue, when it burst into
flames and was completely destroyed in
minutes, according to Lt. Graves.
The state fire marshall was called
in to help with investigation of the
suspicious fire.
Lt. Graves said police suspicions of


arson were increased when neighbors
reported suspicious activities in the
vicinity of the parked car prior to the
fire. Several heard an explosion just as
the car burst into flames.
Port St. Joe's Volunteer Fire Depart-
ment was called to the fire, but the car
was already consumed by the time the
department arrived.
Lt. Graves said preliminary investi-
gation shows the fire started in the back
seat area of the car. "It burned just too
fast to be your normal car fire". Graves
said.


Work to Start Again On Sewer Reworking

Damage to Streets, Purchase of Vehicles Take Up Meeting Time


Work should resume within the next few
days on completing the sewer system test and
seal rehabilitation project, according to City
Clerk Alden Farris.
Approval was given last week to Altair
Maintenance Services, Inc., of Longwood, to
complete the work started last fall by Video and
Sealing, who were stopped by the City for not
complying with the contract.
The bonding company for V&S has taken
over the responsibility of getting the job
completed for the bid price, with Altair being
contracted to complete the project.
The job consists of inspecting sewer
collection mains in the older section of town and
in areas where frequent problems are experi-
enced. The located trouble spots are filled with a
special cement to correct any leaks or broken
mains.


PARKING COMPLAINTS
Residents of Palm Boulevard are complain-
ing that people are parking on the median on
their street, causing damage to the median and
destroying shrubbery and grass. Commissioner
Emily Roche said the people on Palm would like
the city to use its influence to stop the practice.
Street Superintendent Martin Adkison was
instructed to have some no parking signs erected
at intervals in the median in order to discourage
the practice.
Complaints were also fielded about three-
wheelers riding on the shoulder of 20th Street,
tearing up the snoulder.
The Police Department was charged with
trying to curb the problem.
PURCHASE VEHICLES
The purchase of two new police cars
required the attention of the Commision for


nearly a half hour Tuesday night, with the,
Commission finally agreeing to buy the two units
from St. Joe Motor Company of Port St. Joe.
A price from a Jacksonville firm which,
was some lower than the St. Joe Motor Company;
price entered, on a "state contract" price was
discussed and finally rejected mainly because of
the distance from Port St. Joe for warranty.
matters.
After considerable discussion and question-
ing local manager James Bray on delivery'
dates, the Commission decided it was in the
better interests of the City to purchase the:
vehicles from the local firm.
OTHER BUSINESS
In other business matters, the Commission:

Hunker Down with Kes




Whoa, Big Fellow


by Kesley Colbert-._


These days my favorite
show on television is The
Lone Ranger. In case you've
missed it CBN shows
these reruns appropriately
enough on Saturday morn-
ings at 10 o'clock. No, it's not
still brought to us by the


makers of Cheerios, but the
masked man, aided by his
faithful Indian companion,
Tonto, continues to cham-
pion justice in the early
American west. You can tell
by this selection that acting
ability and involved plots are


not high on my list of what
makes a good TV show. My
second favorite show right
now is Sledge Hammer. You
can also tell by this selection
that acting ability and in-
volved plots are not high on
my list of what makes a good


TV show.
The Beverly Hillbillies and
the westerns Ted Turner
runs on his network about
complete my television wat-
ching. I'd never seen a com-
plete mini-series, although
I'd heard there had been


some good ones on over the
years. With all this in mind I
sat down a week or so ago
determined to watch
"Amerika". I was kinda' in-
terested in how the Soviets
were going to "take" us and
I also wanted to see if the
spelling was just a misprint
in my TV log. I discovered
before the opening credits
that this thing was fourteen
and a half hours long.
Shucks, there ain't nothing
"mini" about a show that
runs for fourteen hours.
Now, don't get ready for a
critical analysis of a made
for TV epic. You know me
better than that. I'm not
about to tell you what you
saw. Besides I never really
got into this thing. I had a
problem from the start when
I realized that the Russians
had already "took" us and
there were a lot of
Americans still standing. I
watched intently for about
fifteen minutes I'd seen
more action watching a tur-
nip grow. As I dropped off to
sleep before the first com-
mercial I remember think-
ing if John Wayne was still
with us we, wouldn't have
given up without a fight.
I woke up suddenly the
next morning thinking about
some of the comments over
the years from Lenin, Stalin
and Khrushchev how the
Soviet Union would take
America without firing a
shot. Lenin said as far back
as 1917 that America's
Capitalistic Society was
doomed. Subsequent Com-
mie leaders aimed programs
at disrupting and misleading
social programs in America,
capturing the minds of our
youth, breaking down the
family life, promoting
rebellion against any and all
authority and fostering the
belief in this country that
God is nothing more than a.
myth. Please think back
with me to 1959 Nikita
Khrushchev stood in Iowa,
the heartland of America,
and announced that our
grandchildren would live
under Communism. You
think those folks aren't
serious? You think they've
,changed their minds?.- You,
think they're just funnin' us?i
Without' firing a shot.
Maybe this script writer
knew more than I gave him
credit for. I tuned in for the'
second night. If. you can
believe it, the action slowed
down in this episode. I woke
up along about Thursday
night in time to see the
Soviet leaders in Amerika
brainwashing, lying, misus-
ing, abusing, killing without
mercy, ruling with an iron
fist, crushing any semblance
of human dignity, taking
away not only our freedoms
but also our very thoughts
and ideas.. Well, at least
that part was realistic. Kin-
da' boring but realistic.
I got all set the last night
for the Americans to rise up

nostalgia than it is as history.

IN THE CASE OF Mr. Fillingim,
I'm talking about real "history" here.
Mr. Fillingim was born 20 years after
General Custer had his hair lifted by
the Sioux at Little Big Horn. He was
born before most of the comforts of
life we now take for granted were
even invented. When Mr. Fillingim
came into the world, in extreme south
Alabama, this was largely still a

little more than trails, where a man
could ride a horse or walk, from one
settlement to another. Old St. Joseph
had had its brief bloom and was
settled back into the briars and
palmettos to be covered over for a few
years. Only Apalachicola and a small
settlement along St. Andrew Bay
disturbed the bend of Florida when
J.A. Fillingim was born.
++ ++ +
MR. FILLINGIM WAS a friend of
a lot of people in Northwest Florida.
He was one of the most interesting


the simple but now necessary things
of life.
Mr. Fillingim often told a tale
which expressed the wonder of the
simple folk of his early days when
they first saw electric lights glowing
without tending wicks, without polish-
ing globes and without carrying
kerosene.
He tells a story of when he was a
teen-age boy in south Alabama, the
City of Dothan one day put in a new
gadget called electric lights. A few
homes had the new-fangled lighting


enced by J.A
systems and the City of Dothan had a
few streets which had seen the
kerosene street lights replaced with
electric bulbs.
Fillingim said his dad used to
promise the children that if they were
good during the week, he would hitch
up the team and take them into town
on Saturday night, so they could sit
and watch the new electric lights
burn.
It was a phenomenon and it was a
treat for those young people.
There are not many people alive
today who remember when electric
lights were a phenomenon worthy of
being good all week long, just to get to
see them burning.
+-++++


THERE WERE MANY of what
are now necessities of life which Mr.
Fillingim saw come about.
Many of us remember when there
was no television and only a few
battery-operated radios. Mr. Fillin-
gim remembered when there was no
such thing as a radio. Many remem-
ber the simple country days of
hitching up the mule and wagon to go
to church on Sunday or to town on
Saturday.


. Fillingim

Mr. Fillingim remembered when
that was the only mode of transporta-
tion because automobiles still hadn't
been invented! As a matter of fact, he
owned an agency which sold the
horseless carriages at one time in
Hosford, back when it was a bustling
hub of commerce on the railroad line.
Mr. Fillingim also owned one of
the first bottling plants in West
Florida, which bottled that new
concoction dreamed up by an Atlanta
pharmacist and named "Coca-Cola".
His plant was also in Hosford and was
later moved to River Junction and
later to Marianna.
Mr. Fillingim lived in a day when
the 90 mile corridor of the Apalachi-
cola Northern Railroad from Apala-
chicola to River Junction was teeming
with lumber and naval stores opera-
tions. There were at least nine centers
of activity along the line which
provided the livelihood for many,
many people.
It was an important time in the
history of Florida-the Panhandle in
particular-and Mr. Fillingim was
right there, helping to jump start
what has since become a vibrant part
of Florida's economy.

PHANTRY
by Wendell Campbell



Back In the News
HIS NAME IS Hal Warden and he's in the news
again!
Some of you may remember an article I wrote a
few months ago about young Hal. Hal is the lad from
Nashville, Tennessee who was married at the tender,
but knowing, age of 12. His wife, Wendy Chappell
Warden, was almost an old maid; she was 14.
At the time I wrote that particular article, Hal and
"Wendy-Poo" were in a fierce divorce and custory
battle over their daughter Heather. I have found out
that Hal lost the custody of Heather and was ordered by
the court to pay $30 a week in child support. That may
seem like a lot for a lad 12 years old, but Hal was pulling
down $100 a week at that time, none of which was
wasted on sex education or birth control products.
It might be said that his parents were rather slack
in that area, plus others, like teaching their son to fly
kites and play marbles.
ANYWAY, HAL, LIKE myself and other old
married men, didn't like the single life. Shortly after
the hair, teeth and eyeballs had settled from the first
marital skirmish, Hal decided to give marriage
another whirl. After all, you only go this way once and
Hal wasn't about to walk that lonely road out of his
teens by himself.
This time Hal decided to leave the young women
alone. For his second trip to the altar he chose an older,
more settled lady. Her name was Catherine Renee
Trent and she was. .well, she was 15 years old.
Whatever you may think about Hal, he was not one to
rob the cradle.
It was about this time, give or take a few months,
that Catherine Renee was with child. And, shortly
thereafter, young Hal found himself in court again
facing another divorce and custody battle. I'm not sure
but I think his wife caught him roller skating with a
fifth grader.
This. time, however, the winds were favorable,
either by design or fate, to Hal's somewhat unsteady
marital ship.
The first thing that happened was that his second
wife agreed to joint custody of their daughter Ashley.
She also agreed to share expenses with him. I'll bet Hal
was so happy he drank a quart of Kool-Aid.
+++++
SOMETIME PRIOR TO this, Hal had petitioned the
courts to relieve him of his obligation of the $30 a week
child support he was paying for his first child. In
January, 1987, a three judge panel of the Tennessee
Court of Appeals ruled this was the same month Hal's
second divorce was final that Hal did not have to pay
the child support to his first wife. Hal had finally seen
the light and re-entered school. He returned to Hunter's
Lane High School where he is now in the 10th grade and
teaching, I think, a course in Marriage and Family
Life.'
Poor Hal has had to resign from his $100 a week job
and settle for $15 a week allowance from his mother and
dad. The appeals panel said Hal had no earning
capacity and the $30 a week payment in his first
marriage should be&eldd in abeyance umtil he can pay.
HAL'S MOTHER, Mrs. Ogeal Warden, said, "He
won't have to pay until he's on his feet (she didn't mean
that literally, I'm sure). There's high school and then
college," she continued. "Hal only gets what we give
him. You can't get blood out of a turnip," she
concluded.
Mrs. Warden is right, of course. However, there are
people in our country that believe that if you can't get
blood out of the turnip, get a mess of the turnip!
Hal could stand a little lighter load.

That might be more realistic

Of course I'm sure the
liberals that control so many
of our news casts and write
so many of the editorials and
columns for leading
newspapers across our land
are going to rise up now and
tell you how bad this show
was and that our "friends"

world peace and nothing like
this could ever happen.
Some even go so far as to say
the Soviet Union is not in-

Senior Citizens Plan VariedAgenda

for Spring; Seafood Festival, Games


The Gulf County Senior
Citizens Association and the
Bay St. Joseph Care Center
have joined forces with Bay
and Franklin County Seniors
to present the 1987 Port St.
Joe Seafood Festival.
The purpose of this festival
is to bring an entire day of
fun and excitement to Port
St. Joe. The three senior
citizen associations must
raise over $50,000 every year
to meet their respective
budgets. They are all non-
profit organizations.

Dear Sir:
As a delegate to the recent
Constitutional Convention, I
would appreciate your print-
ing of this letter to the
citizens of the State of
Massachusetts.
If our country is to remain
free, the Constitution pro-
posed by the recent Constitu-
tional Convention must be
ratified. The Constitution will
solve the problems that our
country faces. Some of these
problems, if not solved im-
mediately, could cause us to
lose our hard won freedom.
One of these problems is
that each state has only one
vote in Congress. Under the
new Constitution, there will
be a Senate in which all the
states will have equal repre-
sentation and a House of
Representatives in whice re-
presentation will be decided
according to the population.
These two branches, called
Congress, will be the legisla-
tive branch of the national
government.
The new Congress will be
able to solve some of our
most pressing problems. For
instance, our current Con-
gress is unable to repay its
debts because it is unable to
tax the people. The new
Congress will have the power
to tax the people for the
purposes of paying its debts

CARD OF THANKS
The Whitley family is
indeed grateful to all of you
for your prayers, visits,
comforting messages, food,
flowers,- telegrams, cards
* and other expressions of
sympathy during the loss of
our loved one. You made our
burden of sadness much
easier to bear.
May Jehovah God bless
each of you.

DAR Essay winners, from left: Amy Lynn Waldorff, Angela Sue Goodrich, Mark Willis and Michael Schweikert.


Students Win DAR Essay Contest


Each year the DAR spon-
sors an essay contest for
students in grades five
through eight. This year 62
students from four schools
participated, Wewahitchka
Jr.-Sr. High School, Apalach-
icola High School, Port St.
Joe Elementary Schqol and
Faith Christian School.
The topic of this year's
essay was "A Letter to'the
Editor, September, 1787".
Each participating student
assumed the role of one of the
39 signers of the Constitution
and composed a letter to a
newspaper editor urging the
ratification of the Constitu-
tion and explaining the rea-
son for such action. This was
quite a project for students
ages 10 13, and the DAR
applauds all the students who
entered.
Winners by grade are as
follows: grade eight, first,
Amy Lyn Waldorff; second,
Kevin Peiffer, third Michelle


Willis, fourth, Laura Tucker;
grade seven, first, Angela
Sue Goodrich, second, Shan,
non Cain, third, Tracey Da-
vis, fourth Ashley Murphy;
grade six, first, Mark Willis,

Shannon Roberts, fourth, Lo-
raine Dawson; grade five,
first, Michael -Schweikert,
second, Jonathan Thursbay,

and protecting the people.
Congress will also have the
power to regulate commerce
both between the states and
with foreign countries. This
should bring an end to the
quarreling among the states.
over commerce.
Another major problem
with our recent government
is that it often cannot main-
tain order. A government
must be able to enforce the
laws made. by, its Congress.
Therefore, the Constitution
provides an executive branch
headed by the President. The
President is Commander in
Chief of all armed forces.
The Constitution also pro-
vides a judicial branch to
interpret laws and protect,
the rights of its citizens. It
has provided a Supreme
Court to quard these rights,
such as freedom of religion
and the right to own proper-
ty.
In conclusion, -along with
the other delegates to the
Convention, I strongly urge
you to ratify the Constitution.
Although not perfect, it does
combine the best ideas and
practices of such documents
as the Magria Chirta, 't
Mayflower Compact, and the
Declaration of Independ,-
ence. If we are to remain, a
nation governed by the peo-
ple, we must have a strong
central government to pro-
tect our liberty. "We the
people. .There is the rock
upon which the government
stands".

Roth, manager of the mu-

Many of the investors and
families left their property in
the Apalachicola area and
founded Port St. Joe with
plans to divert the lucrative
cotton shipment business
through Lake Wimico and up
Depot Creek to an eight-mile
railroad, where the cotton
would be brought into St.
Joseph for loading on ocean-
going vessels for shipment.
The railroad was later
lengthened to Iola, northeast

stitution of Florida was
adopted here.
He said the museum is
currently producing a video
program for showing to
school classes and civic
groups which tells the story
of the Constitution Conven-
tion and the part Old St.
.Joseph played in the histori-
cal event. Roth said plans are
to present the program
wherever they can get an
invitation to appear.
In addition to telling of
plans for improvement for
the museum. Roth gave a
short history of the rise and
fall of old St. Joseph during
the first half of the 1800's.
Old St. Joseph was founded
as a rival and a protest to the
older city of Apalachicola
and a protest to the land-
selling tactics of John
Forbes, who .was granted

Local Blalcks Honor Sol


Brown, Sit Joe Native


: Sol Brown, M.D. of Albu-
querque, New Mexico is
honored as a black pathma-
ker. He is recognized as a
. black man who has made a
contribution. He is a native of
Port St. Joe. He spent his
youth here, then went on to
achieve his present status as
a surgeon. He also has a
degree in law. He attended
Fessenden Academy High
School in Ocala; Moorehouse
College in Atlanta, Ga.; and
Meharry Medical College in
Nashville, Tenn. He extended
his training at various other
universities. His involvement
;in civic and social services is
:extensive.


In September '86 Dr.
Brown came home and deli-
vered the Men's Day Address
at Zion Fair Baptist Church.
He came because he felt it his
duty to put back some of that
which he had received in
years gone by.
Others honored locally for
their contributions were Mrs.
Lenora A. Driesbach and
Clarence Monette. Both re-
ceived plaques Saturday
night at the Black History
Banquet. AFCA honored
Mrs. Driesbach for her con-
tinuous support to communi-
ty activities. Monette was
honored by Ebonyettes, Inc.


for chairing the 1986-87 Mar-
tin Luther King Commemo-
ration.
Black History Month is
quickly drawing to a close
and much has been done in a
short time to enlighten those
who are unaware of the black
man's role in making this
country great. Also, efforts
have been made to prick the
conscience of those who
disregard the feelings and
needs of the black citizenry.
It is our sincere desire that
something happened this
month to make a difference
regarding care, concern, de-
dication and inspiration. The

.Survey Forms by May I


The Game and Fresh Wa-
ter Fish Commission is mail-
ing questionnaires to 42,000
Florida outdoorsmen to find
out how well they did during
the 1986-87 hunting season.
Tom Wright, administra-
tive assistant in the Commis-
sion's Division of Wildlife,
said the survey is an annual
project, designed to provide
data for wise management of


this state's game animals
and birds.
"The questionnaires will
help. us provide adequate
recreational opportunities
for outdoorsmen," Wright
said. "From the answers we
get from hunters every year,
we learn more about how to
plan and administer wildlife
programs."

Also, 25 percent (20,000) or

survey mailed Feb. 17.
"It's important that we get
the questionnaires back by
May 18," Wright said.
"That's w;len we plan to start
processing the information."
Wright said information
from the questionnaires will
not be processed in connec-
tion with the hunters' names.
"We're not interested in
knowing anything about the
individuals in this survey,"
Wright said. "What we do
need to know is how much
hunting was done between
Sept. 1, 1986, and Jan. 25,
1987; where it was done; and
how much game was taken
by hunters."

is wider than the stern so that
the canoe tapers from the
front to the rear. The forward
part of some Seminole canoe
hulls are v-shaped, she said.
And a few of the canoes had
seating and decking, with
others built to accommodate
sails.
One historical account tells
of Pedro Menendez meeting
'a Calusa chief who "came
with as many as 12 canoes
and two of them fastened one
to the other, with decks
covered with awnings of
hoops and matting." Purdy
said the description suggest a
catamaran, which would
have enabled Florida natives
to sail as far as the Carib-
bean and vice versa.
Four canoes do not fit any
of the niches' Purdy has
identified. Two are excep-
tionally large 50 and 46 feet
long. And two are made of
tropical woods that do not
occur in Florida. "We think
these belong to the historical
period and came from out-
side Florida, but until we can
study -and date them, we
won't know," said Purdy.

March 15 is the last day to
apply for crop insurance for
rice in Gulf County, accord-
ing to John W. Lawrence, Jr.,
a representative of the Fede-
ral Crop Insurance Corpor-
ation (FCIC).
Crop insurance covers un-
avoidable loss of production
resulting from adverse wea-
ther conditions, wildlife,
earthquake, or fire.
"Three coverage levels
(50, 65, or 75 percent) are
available for insurance pro-
tection. Additionally, FCIC
offers three optional price
selections for valuing pro-
duction lost or damaged,"
says Lawrence.
A new crop insurance plan,
called actual production his-
tory (APH), is available this
year to producers of soy-
beans, wheat, barley, oats,
and rye in addition to corn,
grain sorghum, peanuts, cot-
ton, rice and other crops.
Producers of these crops
may now qualify for higher
yield guarantees by proving
their yield history. Rates
have been developed to offer
reduced premium for pro-
ducers with above-average
yields. "With the increased
cost of producing a crop, it
makes good sense to take a

the Tornadoes made up the
difference.
In a determined effort to
pull the game out in the final
period, the score was tied six
times and the lead changed
hands five times before the
Tornadoes finally went
ahead to stay with 19 seconds
left in the game.
Jason Hammac injured his
ankle in the second period
and never returned to the
game. His absence probably
took away enough defensive
expertise for the Tornadoes
to edge the Sharks.

Spring Gardening...


By: ROY LEE CARTER
Extension Agent
Seed or transplants? Which
to use, is a very important
decision for those planning to
grow a spring vegetable
garden. You can successfully
produce vegetables with ei-
ther method. But seeds and
transplants both have their
advantages and disadvant-
ages. You should consider all
of these before you make up
your mind about which will
be best for you.
In this article I'll talk about
the pros and cons of starting
vegetables with transplants.
Also, I'll offer some tips to
help you get your transplants
off to a good start. My
information for this article
was provided by Extension
Vegetable Specialist Jim Ste-
phens, of the University of
Florida Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences.
One advantage transplants
offer is an early start.
Transplants are grown in
protected seed flats, or seed-
beds. These allow seeds to
germinate under the best
possible conditions. Also,
seeds in flats can be started
before the weather is really
g suitable for planting directly
in the garden. So whether you
grow your own transplants,
or buy them at a garden
center, you'll be several
weeks ahead of gardeners
who start with seeds.


CARTER
Using transplants allows
you to choose only the best
plants. If you're raising
transplants in your own
seedbed, you'll have many
more plants than you really
need. So you may select the
healthiest specimens. If
you're buying transplants at
a garden center you can pick
the best from what's avail-
able. In either case, be sure
to choose only the strongest
plants for your garden.
It's easier to start from
transplants especially if you
only need a few. For a
window-box garden, or a
very -small garden patch,
using transplants is much
more practical than starting
from seeds. By using trans-
plants, you can minimize
seedling decay problems.
Diseases are easier to control

in a seed flat than in the
garden.,
The main disadvantage in
using transplants is that the
cost would mount up quickly
if you bought seedlings for a
large garden. Also, some
crops are hard to transplant
successfully. For example,
beans, corn, cucumbers, and
turnips do better if they're
started from seeds planted in'
the garden.
If you're raising your own
transplants, they should be
ready for the garden when
they're four to six weeks old.
Those you buy usually are


.. and
In my last article I talked
about the pros and cons of
beginning a garden with
transplants, which give you a
faster start, but can be
expensive if you need a lot. In
this article I will discuss
planting seeds directly in the
garden. My information for
this article was provided by
Extension Vegetable Special-
ist Jim Stephens, of the
University of Florida's Insti-
tute of food and agricultural
science.
Besides costing less than
transplants, a major advant-
age of starting a home
vegetable garden directly
from seeds is that you can
choose from a wider selec-
tion of varieties. A garden
center may have several
varieties of seeds for a given
crop, only one or two varie-
ties of transplants. Also some
crops, such as beans, corn,
cucumbers, and turnips don't
transplant very well. It's best
to start these from seeds. On
the other hand, many crops
do transplant well. They
include things like tomatoes,
broccoli, collards and let-
tuce. If transplants are avail-
able for such crops, they are
probably a better bet than
starting from seeds unless
you're planning a very large
garden.
While most vegetables can
be grown from seeds, there
are exceptions such as sweet
potatoes, Irish potatoes and
strawberries. For specific
recodhimieridatlohs oh the
crops you want to grow,
check with your garden

extension agent.
If you decide to start from
seeds, get the best you can
find. Seed quality could mean
the difference between suc-
cess; and failure in your
garden. So always buy good
seeds from a reliable dealer.
From a few crops, you can
save seeds from your garden
but,: for many others that
really isn't practical. Since
most seeds are relatively
inexpensive, you are probab-
ly better off buying those you
nee4, if they are available.
You should buy tested seed
varieties. IFAS scientists
test most crop varieties, and
recommend only those which
do well here. You will have
the best chance for success if
plant varieties with some
resistance' to common Flor-
ida pests, (varieties recom-
mended in Extension Circu-
lar 104), "The Vegetable
Garden Guide". It's avail-
able at your county extension
office, and mqay garden
centers have reference co-
pies, Of course, you can plant
anything you like. But, many
gardeners cheat themselves
by continuing to plant infer-
ior types, without even trying
those that grow best in our
state.
There is one note of caution
to keep in mind when hand-
ling seeds. Most of the seeds
you'll find at garden centers
have been treated with chem-
icals, to reduce injury and
decay caused by insects and
disease. Usually, youcan tell
when seeds have been treat-
ed, because they are coated

water into the hole to settle
the soil. Then cover the wet
area with dry soil to reduce
evaporation.
To give transplants a quick
start, apply a starter fertiliz-
er solution. You can buy
these ready mixed, or you
can make your own. For best
results, mix one or two
tablespoons of a high phos-
phate fertilizer something
like a 10-50-10 if you can find
it or, you can use an ordinary
all purpose fertilizer, like
8-8-8 just pour about a pint of
the mixture into each hole as
you set the plant.


with brightly colored dye.
It's a good idea to use
treated seeds. In fact, you
should always use them when
they are available but, re-
member that the chemical on
such seeds are poisonous. So,
treated seeds should never be
eaten by people or animals.
They should be handled with
care, and be kept out of reach
of children and pets.
Finally, follow the planting
directions on the seed packet.
If you plant too deep, the
young plants may not be able
-to reach the soil surface after
sprouting. And if you plant
too shallow, the seeds may be
washed away by rain.
