Indian Lagoon has a ruling of

of clams have come under closer
scrutiny in recent months with the
growth of the industry in local waters.
Clams are comparatively new to
the local waters, but were introduced
to the bay a few years.ago and have
seemed to thrive to the point where
their harvest is commercially feasible

people harvest them on a regular

The Department of Natural Re-
sources sent out notices this past Week
of their intentions to reclassify
portions of shellfish harvesting waters
in four counties. One of these counties
was Gulf, where reclassification will
be accomplished in St. Joseph Bay
and Indian Lagoon.
While the stipulation for shellfish
taking is given attention in the itotice,
local Marine Patrol officer, Carl
(Bucky) Richter said the stipulation
in St. Joseph Bay would affect clam
harvesting for the most part. "Taking:

Most of the clams in the bay are
harvested in the southern end of the

take the shellfish only from water

Previously, there had been no

Ward Ridge Votes
On Annexation Tues.
Registered voters of the small city of Ward Ridge will go to the polls
Tuesday to decide the fate of one of three incorporated municipalities in
Voters-citizens of Ward Ridge will vote on the question of whether or
not to abandon their charter and ask for incorporation into the City of
Port St. Joe, which joins the Ward Ridge city limits on the north.
Ward Ridge sent 70 of its 79 registered voters to the polls to decide the
same question in September of last year and voted with an overwhelming
majority to become a part of Port St. Joe, but an error in th.e legal
description of the property to be involved in the matter, caused Ward
Ridge officials to decide to hold the referendum again.
In the last voting test of the will of the people on the annexation
question, 52 of those casting ballots approved the merger of the two cities
and 18 voted their opposition.
VOTING HOURS AND POLLING PLACE
Voting will begin at 7:00 a.m., Tuesday morning, and the polls will
remain open until 7:00 p.m., according to Allen V. McCulley, one of two
remaining elected officials in the small city. McCulley and Commissioner
Lewis Taylor made the executive decision to ask for the annexation .
election and held several public hearings for Ward Ridge citizens prior to
taking legal steps to call for the referendum.
Voting will be in the Ward Ridge City Hall, at the intersection of Niles
Road and Garrison Avenue.
Mayor McCulley said that while he isn't being over-confident, he feels
the question will be approved once again. "One thing for sure; we have
the description of the city boundaries correct this time. I took them
myself, right off the state statute creating the city of Ward Ridge in the
first place and copied it into the election papers. We'll do it right this
time", he said.
PORT ST. JOE MUST VOTE
Approval of a merger of the two cities by Ward Ridge voters will not
settle the question of the future of the smaller city. Electors of the city of
Port St. Joe must also vote in a referendum question on whether or not to
accept Ward Ridge into its environs. The Port St. Joe referendum is
expected to be held in May along with Port St. Joe's regular municipal

Tonight at 7 P.M.
Construction of a new high rise bridge across the mouth of the Gulf
County Canal, where it empties into the Gulf of Mexico will come a step
closer to becoming a reality tonight.
The Florida Department of Transportation (DOT) will hold a public
hearing this evening, Thursday, March 5, at 7:00 p.m., at the Highland
View Elementary School to receive input on the planned replacement of
the Highland View bridge on U.S. 98 in Gulf County, according to a DOT
This will be the second of a series of public hearings scheduled by
DOT during the planning stage of the new bridge.
"This hearing is being conducted to afford interested persons the
opportunity to express their views concerning the location, design and
impacts the proposed bridge will have", said Larry Kelley, project
The existing structure is a twin-leaf bascule drawbridge built in 1939.
DOT is proposing to replace it with a 75 foot vertical clearance high-rise
bridge to accommodate a planned deep water port which is currently a
project of the Port St. Joe Port Authority.
WORK TO START IN FISCAL 1989-90
DOT currently plans to begin construction in fiscal year 1989-90 with
an estimated construction cost of $8.8 million.
DOT's preferred alternate plan calls for the construction of an access
road from the Third Street-Parker Avenue intersection to First and
Second streets in Highland View. The road would provide access to the
residential area along First and Second streets and industrial sites along
the Gulf County Canal.
DOT's preliminary plans indicate the project will require the
relocation of four businesses and two residences. A service station,
seafood market, hardware store and lumber supply store would be
DAILY TRAFFIC COUNT GROWING
Average daily traffic on the Highland View Bridge was 8,800 in 1985
with that figure expected to rise to 23,100 by the year 2009.
Bridge openings average 370 per month with an average 436 marine
vessels using the facility.
"The residents of Highland View are dependent on a functional
bridge for emergency and social services from Port St. Joe. Replacing
the drawbridge with a high-rise bridge will eliminate delays. It.will also
enhance hurricane evacuation for residents in the area," said Kelley.
Kelley said traffic on the existing bridge will be maintained during
construction of the new structure.
The proposed bridge will be a two-lane structure with two 12-foot
driving lanes and 10-foot paved shoulders on each side.
A move to have the old bridge replaced with a new and modern
high-rise span started over 10 years ago when periodic malfunctions of
the old bridge and plans for building a new deep water shipping port
facility here in Port St. Joe began to take shape.

Ever since the plant went into
operation in the early 1970's, the City
has complained that the outfall

than the requirements are for other
similar plants in the state of Florida.
The limits, set and accepted by the
EPA, have kept the local plant in

The limits of the\plant were

certain operating conditions, the plant
should be able to meet the require-

the system was planned. The plant

As a warning of what the county is
working toward, Wells advised the
committee that "zoning will arrive
one year after the approval of the

there will be some sort of land use
regulation stipulated by the state one
year after the plan is accepted". The

Nothing About Tennis
by Kesley Colbert-~i
A good friend of mine asked me
yesterday if I played tennis. Gil was
quite surprised when I told him I
didn't. "You mean ya'll didn't play
tennis when you were growing up?"
That was the best laugh I've had
this week. Listen, when I was ten we
thought a lob was when you hid up
behind the Mayo's barn and tossed
dirt clods down on Hollis and Stacy as
they brought the cows in to water. A
lob was the way Buddy Wiggleton
pitched for the V.F.W. in Little
League. You know, he couldn't throw
hard he just lobbed it in. When you
played Annie Over you didn't throw
the ball as hard as you could you
just kind'a lobbed it over the house.
Yes sir, we'd never heard of Bill
Tilden or Poncho Gonzales but we
were near about experts at lobbing.
An ace to us was getting all the
correct answers on the test. Of course,
we didn't know as much about aceing
as we did lobbing. An ace was that
card that beatall the other cards. And
you knew if you could get three or four
of them in one hand you was a'fixing
to win somebody's magnet. I've heard
Mother say lots of times that my Un-
cle Jack was an ace during the war
but I never knew exactly what that
meant. I think it means he either did
real good on the Army test or he
played lots of cards.
A good backhand? Shucks, we had
that, too. You ought to remember this
one you'd kind'a get smart-
mouthed at supper about the cauli-
flower and you'd go too far. Your dad
reaches around your little brother and
whammo -.he immediately removes
you from the table to a spot by the
stove wood over in the corner. A man
with a real good backhand usually on-
ly had to use it once and you'd get a lot
more tolerant about that cauliflower.
Now, I don't know much about a
forehand smash as I've only seen one
of them. David Mark and I were get-
ting our haircuts down at Gene's. I

Wants A Neighborhood Crime Watch Program
Dear Mr. Ramsey:
I would like to go on record as
having requested a Neighborhood
Crime Watch program for Gulf Aire in
May of 1986, when I was serving as the
treasurer of the Property Owners
Association, Inc. As of this date the
association has never had a reply.
I feel if a Crime Watch Program
had been in effect in our neighborhood
it would have helped in the prevention
of our recent numerous Gulf Aire
I believe this community should
be aware of the seemingly high rate of
theft in Gulf County and action should
be taken to stop it. A good place to
start would be the implementation of
a Crime Watch Program by the

And, wi e'-We're asking
for Fifth Street to be re-paved,
let's put in our bid to have
Highway 98 resurfaced where
it goes though the City limits.
We could never see why
the DOT did all the paving
they did on Highway 98, all
around the City of Port St. Joe,
.last year, and failed to re-
surface that section inside the
City of Port St. Joe. Perhaps
they thought the cars came
through the City floating
above the road and didn't
wear it out.
Once DOT replaces Fifth
Street and that section of
Highway 98 inside the City of
Port St. Joe, it should be, quite
a while before we need to call
on them for such work again.

Take AIDS, for instance. Who
ever heard of AIDS as recently as 10
years ago? Where did it come from?
Where has it been all this while?
People have practiced promiscuous

invented it and I never heard of AIDS
until just the past few years.
Am I out of touch? Has my life
been lived in too protected a manner?
Am I not knowledgeable enough about
what is going on around me?
Is AIDS something which was
caused by too much atomic radiation

could the disease be another of those

Have You Ever Been Hungry?
MOST DOCTORS AND all diet quacks tell us that we do not need most
of what we eat. Most of us, they say, are not even hungry when we eat.
Eating, they preach, is just a habit. ,
It is a habit and a good one to have, as you well know, if you ever
been hungry. And I don't mean just a little empty feeling in your stomach.
I mean a craving, mouth watering, rib showing, eat a piece of raw
I'LL BE THE FIRST to admit that I eat too much. It would be foolish
for me to say I don't. I'm highly visible at 25 to 30 pounds over what I
should weigh. -
There have been times in my life when I wasn't so. Age and less
activity are two reasons why I weigh more now. Not having all I wanted
to eat is another. There were times when I thought I was going to starve to
As a matter of fact, it was one of those times that I learned to eat and
enjoy liver, and I still do today.

HUNGRY PEOPLE ARE dangerous. If I miss two meals I'm lethal.
The first time I can remember being real hungry, I was about
twelve-years-old and was at a Boy Scout meeting at Ellyson Field in
Pensacola. I had practiced football that afternoon, missed supper and
walked the two or so miles to the meeting.
We were leaving the building after the meeting when the aroma hit
my tender and sensitive nose. I followed it like a martin to a gourd. There
stood a man about to dump that wonderful liver and gravy into the trash
can. It was the best thing I had ever eaten!
There were many times I was hungry while in college. At that time
there were no evening meals served on Sunday. I tried my. best to eat
enough at the noon meal but I never could make it last until Monday
morning. There were several times, at about 9 p.m., that I came close to
THERE WAS ANOTHER time I came close to starvation when I lived
in Lakeland. I awoke in a somewhat uncertain condition one morning,
suffering from the results of too much friendly libation the night before
and no dinner. I can't remember ever being that hungry.
At the time I was a bachelor, living with another bachelor. My
roommate was gone for the Weekend and must have eaten.everything he
could and packed the rest in his car. There was only a can of pork n'
beans, three pieces of bread and a half-empty quart of questionable milk
left in the house.
My condition was such that I could not walk, much less ride, to a
restaurant or store. I crawled to the kitchen and lay on the floor and ate
the bean sandwich and drank the milk.

Wilder said there is a problem with
budgeting state money which must be
done prior to the current school year
with student load anticipated rather
than an actual count of heads. Wilder
said the district can't just arrive at an
arbitrary figure which would cover
any unexpected enrollment because
damaged four vehicles and sent at
least one man to the hospital for
examination, according to Port St.
Joe Police Department records.
According to police records, Alice
Green, 57, of Port St. Joe, was driving
east over the' railroad viaduct, when
she swerved into the westbound
traffic lane and struck a second
vehicle, headed west, driven by Jack
D. Britton of Austin, Texas. Britton's
car was pulling a boat and the car and
the boat ended up across the traffic
lane near the crown of the overpass.
Johnny Ray Raker of Highland
View then approached the accident
and saw the damaged vehicles in time
to stop. Richard H. Jackson then
came over the crown of the structure
and couldn't stop in time before he
struck the rear of Raker's car,
knocking it into the piled up vehicles.

In Gul_,County's case, for exam-
ple, their current budget was based on
80 more students attending the system

the county the sizeable chunk of

The Board is also considering
taking bids to sell some of the real

from the old facility to the new school,
and much of, the property is now
surplus to the system.
The property being considered for

Walter Wilder Tells Kiwanians A Shortage of
Qualified Teachers Faces State Sch(
Superintendent of Schools, Walter
Wilder spoke to the Kiwanis Club
Tuesday, telling the club that begin-
ning with the current school year,
students can expect to be required to
make at least a 1.5 grade point
average in order to receive a diploma.
"They must average the grade point
requirement in every subject through
all four years of high school", Wilder
The average is a requirement of
the State Department of Education
which took effect this school year.
"There is nothing this or any other
school district can do to circumvent
this regulation, nor should any school
district want to", Wilder said.
Along with the grade point
average requirement comes another
stipulation that students will have
acquired 24 credits before they can
receive a diploma.
The Superintendent noted that the
school census is slowly declining in
Gulf County. He pointed out that, the
lowered birth rate has had a definite
effect on the school population. This,
of course, causes problems at budget-
ing time, when the administration
must project how many students will
attend during the next school year in
order to obtain state funding for those
students. "If we guess wrong on the
short side, we don't get enough money

Wilder pointed out that while the
Gulf County school system is current-
ly fully staffed with qualified and
experienced teachers, there is a
definite teacher shortage coming.
"College students aren't going into
teaching by numbers large enough to
take care of our attrition", he said. He
predicted that in six years nearly half
the present teachers will leave the
profession for one reason or another
and there are not nearly enough in
training to take their places.
The Superintendent said that
presently Gulf County has the second
most experienced staff in the state,
with a 15 year experience average per
teacher. "But that means we're going
to have a lot of retirements within just
a few years", he pointed out.
"Florida is now the fastest
growing state in the nation and we're

This Spring Should See Exciting
Baseball Action for Shark Fans
Port st. Joe's baseball Sharks are
starting their season this year with
six veterans, including five seniors on
their squad, according to first year
head coach Duane McFarland, which
should produce some exciting base-
ball for Port St. Joe fans.
McFarland, who was assistant
coach last year, said this year's
Sharks will play some aggressive
baseball, featuring some base steal-
ing, squeeze plays and a lot of hit and
run. "We think we have the tools to get
the job done", McFarland said.
The head coach says one of the
keys for this year's Sharks will be the
performance of the six returning
starters from last year's squad. The
coach, himself a Shark of former
years, points to Randy Wilder, senior
catcher; Tim Wilder, senior center
fielder and pitcher; Marty Williams,
senior first baseman; David Staab,
senior left fielder and part time third

the current year's club. Randy
Wilder, who was the regular catcher
this year, has earned the reputation as
one of the best catchers in the state
and should handle this position well.
Randy Wilder and Gainnie both
held down starting positions this past
summer on a Dixie Pre-Major team
that advanced all the way to world
series play. Tim Wilder pitched and
played center field on this area's
Dixie Major team that competed in
the state play-offs.
"We're starting with a good
nucleus of experience, but there is still
the question of how the rookies will
perform before we can really say just
how strong we will be", McFarland
said. "We feel good about our pitching
and our catching and we're encourag-
ed over the strength we have shown in
the infield and outfield positions.
We're starting with experience in all
but three positions, so we should be
pretty solid as a team".
The coach said the Shark bats
should show considerable improve-
ment over last year. A lack of hitting
plagued the Sharks all year long.
"Once we get on base, we have pretty
good speed and we plan to use it",
McFarland said. He said Tim Wilder
will be the lead-off hitter this year.
The senior has a good record of
getting on base and has excellent
speed once he gets on.
"We're enthusiastic about the
season and we will be aggressive all
year long", the coach summed up.
A two-run homer by Randy Wilder
and two hit pitching by Mickie
Gainnie led the Sharks to their first
baseball win of the season Tuesday
The Sharks opened their season in
Blountstown, dumping the Tigers by a
lop-sided 12-5 score. None of the
Tigers' runs were earned, but were
allowed by a leaky Shark .defense
which had the first game jitters.
The game went only six innings
before it was called by darkness with
the Sharks owning a comfortable lead
at the time.
Gainnie allowed only two Tiger
hits through the fifth inning, when he
was lifted with an 11-4 lead. The
Sharks committed five errors behind
Gainnie. The senior pitcher walked
only three in his season's debut and
struck out nine.
Tim Wilder came on in relief and
the left-hander gave up one walk and
and struck out five in his inning and
two thirds of relief.
The Sharks improved on last
year's anemic hitting performance
Tuesday by collecting seven hits in the
game. Wilder poled an RBI double in
addition to his two run homer. Mickie
Gainnie slapped two two-run singles,
David Staab ripped two doubles and
Marty Williams had a double.

Lenten Season Explained
for Ones Who Don't Know
Since so many Protestant Chur-
ches do not follow the Liturgical, or
Church year calendar, most of the
Christian holidays (excepting Christ-
mas and Easter) are not celebrated.
Therefore many people wonder what
their liturgically oriented brothers
and sisters are doing during certain
seasons. This is especially true of
Lent, the season before the Easter
season. Easter by the way is not a day
but a season which starts with Easter
day and is celebrated for forty days,
ending on the Saturday before Pente-
Lent begins with Ash Wednesday,
this year, March the 4th. Liturgical
Churches generally have a service on
this day when customarily the wor-
shippers are marked with ashes made
from the palms saved from last year's
Palm Sunday services. The ashes are
a sign of our sorrow for our sins. Any
(0. C. Hammond, Sr.)
O.C., Eric & Betty
* Heating & Air
reader of the Bible has learned that
God's people have used ashes as an
outward sign of repentance for
thousands of years.
The three traditional ways of
keeping a holy lent are fasting, prayer
and almsgiving. All three of these
disciplines are aimed at the establish-
ment, or reinforcement of Godly
Fasting means getting your body
in control. Those who are eating
wrong, or drinking excessively can
use these forty days to develop the
practice of curbing destructive habits
of consumption. Fasting can also
include getting better exercise, and
going to bed a bit earlier. Less eating,
more exercise, and better rest will
give us bodies that are more alert and
responsive to God.
Prayer needs no explanation. It
simply needs practice. Lent can be a
great time to develop a lifelong habit
of speaking to God. It is also a good
time to start listening to him during
times of Christian meditation.
Almsgiving finds its rationale in the
book of Malachi, chapter 3, verses
7-10. Here we learn that tithing is not
only the minimum standard for
giving, but that those who fail to do so
are robbing God. Also God himself
issues a challenge to test him by
tithing, to see if he will greatly
increase his blessings. People who
don't tithe generally get mad when
they hear this. But I have never met
anyone who does tithe who has

Isn't that enough time to develop a
good habit? Giving up bad things and

your Lenten discipline this year? You
won't regret it. Those who know you
will see the difference, and so will you.

l 8. Rotary Project
me Fights Polio
Rotary is involved in a program to
eradicate poliomyelitis around the
world and a video tape showed some
of that program at work in the nation
of Malawi last Thursday.
The program is funded by the
Rotary Foundation, which is contri-
buted to by every Rotarian and is
entitled, "Polio Plus".
The film pointed out that while
polio has largely been eradicated in
the United States, it is still a very real
problem in the remaining countries of
the world. The crusade of Rotary is to
have the dreaded child crippler
completely wiped out by the year 2005.
- in addition to providing wholesale
vaccinations of children, the program
is also involved in some treating
(including surgery) for those children
who have already contracted and
become afflicted by the disease. As an
on-going treatment provider, the
Polio Plus plan trains local people to
do orthopedic work on the polio
victims. The training program takes
about a year and a. half, and equips
local medical people to deal with the
orthopedic procedures required to
correct some of the health problems
caused by polio.

Do You Want Sc

"We would like to plant a
live oak or southern
magnolia, but we can't wait

familiar? This is a very com-

homeowners who want to

oak, white oak, black olive,
magnolia, dogwood, and
others should not be passed
up just because they are
labelled as "slow growers."
There are several things that
you can do to speed up the
growth of trees.
First, consider soil condi-
tions. If the soil where the
tree will be planted is poorly
drained, compacted, infer-
tile, or too dry, take the time
to modify it to better suit the
tree's requirements. Many
soil additives or amend-
ments are available and
when incorporated into the
soil can greatly improve the
physical and chemical soil
properties. Examples are
peat, composts and sludge.
Next consider the nutrient
supply in the soil. If the soil
is naturally infertile (and
most Florida soils are), you
might want to incorporate a
complete fertilizer into the
If the site is poorly drain-
ed, fill dirt may be added to
provide a layer of well-
drained soil deep enough for
good root growth. If the soil
is very sandy and 'dry, soil
amendments can be used to
increase water holding
capacity and mulch can be
used to reduce water loss
after the tree is planted.
Consider the spot where
you will plant the tree. Most
trees make maximum
growth when planted in full
sun. Don't plant a slow grow-
ing tree in dense shade and
expect it to grow quickly.
Use mulches around the tree
to reduce soil temperatures,
especially if planted in full
sun. A mulch can insulate
the tree roots and reduce soil
temperature by 15-20
degrees, thus making a
favorable environment for
The last two points to con-
sider are probably the most
important. Never disturb the
root system, and reduce
competition to the tree. Even
though trees have a few very
deep roots, most of the root
system is fairly shallow. Any
digging or hoeing which
damages the roots of the tree
can slow its growth con-
siderably. And finally, keep
grass away from the newly
planted tree as long as possi-
ble. Research has shown
that competition of grasses
can reduce root growth of
young trees as much as 50
per cent. This severe reduc-
tion means the tree gets less
water and nutrients, and
growth is restricted.
Mulching a bare area around
the tree is again very
Maximum growth is the
result of how well you help
meet the optimum growing
conditions of the tree. If you
follow these, guidelines, that
"slow growing" shade tree
may be grown as fast as one
