Solid Waste Station Target of Fire Bug


Gulf County Mosquito Control
Supervisor, Sam Graves, Jr., is
considering changing his title to
Sam Graves, Jr., fire inspector.
Nearly every Sunday for the
past two months, and several days
in between the week end day of rest,
Graves has, been disturbed that
another of the county's solid waste
trailers has been set on fire and
burned at the St. Joe Beach solid
waste collection site.
Graves told The Star this week,
that, to date, at least a dozen of the
trailers have been 'burned, with
most of the fires happening on a
.Sunday night.. "Usually the alarm
will come around 9:00 or 9:30",
Graves, said..
"This may be exciting for
someone, but it's beginning to get
expensive for Gulf County. As a
matter of fact, the operation is
costing so much, with these fires,
that the County Commission is
considering removing this solid
waste collection site and leaving the
beach people to go all the way to
Port St. Joe or to Overstreet with
their trash".
The latest of these Sunday night
episodes was as recent as this past
Sunday, when, sure enough, right on
the dot at 9:30, fire was discovered
consuming not only the trailers
placed at the site to collect waste,
but also the ramp which makes it
convenient for residents of the area
to drive up and toss their collection


of refuse into the trailers.
"The fire Sunday hight cost the
county at least $3,000", Graves said.
"Every one of those fires costs the
county a pile of money. Considering
the amount of damage caused,
every fire has cost from $100 to $500
for repairs to the trailers. This last
fire was really expensive because
they set three trailers on fire at the
same time, as well as the timber
retaining wall which forms the
drive-up ramp approach".
Graves said officials are certain
the fires are being set because of the
frequency and because Sunday
night, all three--trailers- were
burning at the same time and they
were parked 30 to 40 feet apart,
which made it unlikely the fire had
spread from one trailer to another.
"Those trailers are expensive",
Graves said. "Depending on who we
buy them from, they can cost from
$3,000 to $5,000 each. Every lime one
is burned, we have the job of
sand-blasting it and repainting and
possibly replacing some of the
components, such as tires on the
units. That runs up into big money
in a hurry", Graves pointed out.
Both the Mosquito Control di-
rector and Sheriff Al Harrison said
they are working on the problem,
but, as Sheriff Harrison said, "They
seem to know when we are
watching".
Graves said that on occasion
trailers will burn at one of the other


collection spots throughout the
county, but not with the regularity
as the site at St. Joe Beach.
Both Graves and Sheriff Harri-


son ask residents and citizens who
happen to be in the area to report
anything they see in the vicinity
which looks suspicious to them.


Scorched trailers are a regular occurence


Adams Escapes Jail; Comes Home


Curtis "Boo" Adams, a former
resident of Port St. Joe, currently in
prison serving a life term for murder,
played another saga in a life which
could readily be adapted into a TV
mini-series, here in Port St. Joe last
week. Adams paid a visit to his old
home town last week, after escaping
from a Tallahassee prison.
Adams, serving a life sentence for
murder, was on a work release
program in Tallahassee until early in
March. In addition to the conviction of
murder, he had also confessed to the
murders of Port St. Joe service
station attendants Grover Floyd and
Jesse Burkett in the early 1960's, but
has never, been tried for the crimes.
While in Tallahassee on the work
release program, Adams was appar-
ently approached by an old prison
buddy, William Chester Cole, 47, of
Gulf Breeze, who apparently offered
to help Adams escape and pay him a
sum of money if he would kill Ben
Henry Pooley, 64, of Santa Rosa.
Pooley is a former circuit court clerk
and retired public works director in
Santa Rosa. Records show that Pooley
has already had two additional
attempts made on his life for an as yet
undetermined reason and by persons
unknown.
MADE AN OFFER
Adams was allegedly offered
$7,000 by Cole to make the third
attempt on Pooley's life, according to
a story Adams told Wayne White, -of
the State's Attorney's office after
giving himself up on Sunday, March 8.
White, who knows Adams well,
said he couldn't afford not to believe
the story and tucked Adams away in
the Gulf County jail under an assumed
name until contact could be made
with Cole and work out a scenario
which would verify the story and

movie script.


result in the arrest of Cole.
But Adams hadn't just come to
Port St. Joe on March 8, when he was
arrested. He arrived nearly a full.
week prior, but the exact day is
uncertain. A former resident of
Highland View, and familiar with the
area, Adams had a small tent and
camped out in the brush and woods in
the area between the Dixie Belle
Curve and St. Joseph Bay.
"CALL THE FBI"
Sunday, he came to Butler's
Restaurant and asked to see Wandell
Butler's brother, who ran a service
station in Highland View when Adams
lived here. Wandell Butler told Adams
his brother didn't live here any more
and Adams then asked him to call the
FBI because he had something to tell
them.
Butler said he tried to call the
FBI, but the office was closed, so he
called his friend and State's Attorney
investigator, Wayne White. White
came to the restaurant and took
Adams into custody. In the meantime,
Adams caused no trouble and went
along with White with no argument.
When White learned of the story,
he sequestered Adams and began to
plan the apprehension of Cole.
A RENDEZVOUS'
Thursday of last week, Cole was
to come pick up Adams for his job of
-murder. Adams was wired by FDLE
to record the conversation between he
and Cole in the meeting.


Cole returned to the meeting spot
and parked on the shoulder of
Highway 98 near where he had left
Adams to pitch camp near the bay,
walking into the woods just before
noon for the meeting.
Adams was given a shotgun by
Cole and when they returned to Cole's
car, officers from the Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforcement, the State's
Attorney's office and the Gulf County
Sheriff's office, converged on the
parked car to prevent it leaving.
Cole surrendered when he saw he
was surrounded.
Cole, who was or the FBI's "Most
Wanted" list in the 1960's, was on
parole when he was arrested.
Adams will be returned to the
state penitentiary where he will
continue serving his sentence and be
charged with escape, but was not
otherwise charged in the attempted
murder plot.
PAST REPUTATION
Adams is well known in Gulf
County and throughout the state of
Florida by reputation.
In the celebrated Gulf County
murder case where Floyd and Burkett
were killed, two other men were
charged with and tried for the slaying.
Freddie Pitts and Wilbert Lee were
both convicted twice of the murders
and were sentenced to die in Florida's
electric chair.
After spending some time on
death row at Raiford, Adams came


up with his confession of the double
murder which resulted in a pardon for
the two who had been convicted. In
1975, they were pardoned by Governor
Reuben Askew.


Port St. Joe's City Commission
didn't waste any time in setting up
their half of the required double-
barreled referendum to annex Ward
Ridge Tuesday night. With the city of
Ward Ridge voting to ask for
annexation last Tuesday, the City
Commission met for only 20 minutes
Tuesday night; but part of that 20
minutes was taken up with deciding to
call for a referendum on the question
for Port St. Joe voters.
Attorney William J. Rish advised
the Commission they had time to
make the required legal announce-
ments within the time frame required
by Florida law in order to place the
question on the May municipal
election ballot.
"We have time to post the notices,
run the legal advertisement and call
for the election before the May
primary" Rish said.
The Board unanimously agreed to
place the question on the May ballot.
Port St. Joe voters must vote to
accept Ward Ridge as part of Port St.
Joe before the annexation process can
be completed.
Bill Fleming, who made the
motion to set the question on the local
ballot remarked, "We want to make
sure we go through the proper
procedure. We want to do this thing
right the first time":
NPDES PERMIT
The U.S. Environmental Protec-
tion Agency notified the City by letter
last week, that EPA has distributed a
notice they are going to consider a
change in the City's requirements for
outfall limits from the Wastewater
Treatment Plant. The EPA said the
notices ask for any questions concern-
ing the matter from the public prior to
conducting the hearing regarding the
limit change prior to issuing an
operating permit.
The Wastewater Treatment plant
was initially given more stringent
limits and requirements than other
like treatment plants throughout the
state of Florida, including one in Bay
County which is the same type
operation. Since the time of the
original permitting, the City has been
attempting to get EPA to change the
limits to cooincide with other plants.
Port St. Joe's plant empties its
outfall into the Gulf County canal near
where it enters St. Joseph Bay. The
canal waters have been classified as
Class III waters, suitable for recrea-
tion, propagation and maintenance of
fish and wildlife. Requirements of the
Port St. Joe effluent are more strict
than the requirements for Class III

give more space to the Clerk's office suite where a new
computer system is being put in place for the Courthouse
use. Wells said the Commission will be holding their first
session in their new meeting room Tuesday evening oehnext
week. The Commission space, which also houses Wells'
office, is located in the south wing of the Courthouse
adjacent to the entrance to the Sheriff's office.














Gulf County's Commis-
sion is undertaking the task of
promulgating an ordinance
which is primarily designed to
prevent rabies outbreaks in
the county.
The ordinance has been
prompted by rabies outbreaks
in neighboring counties last
summer and the distinct pos-
sibility that it could happen
here, also.
We don't argue with the
.need for an ordinance design-
ed to control rabies and
provide the guidelines to deal
with it should the need arise.
No argument against that all.
The only argument we
found with the draft of the
ordinance, upon cursory in-
spection, was that the guide-
lines are too lenient with
defining an outbreak of rabies.
^; On reading the draft, we
. find where apparently rabies
. isn't considered an outbreak,
g requiring stiff measures un-
E- less at least three outbreaks

month period of time.
Since any outbreak of
rabies is. more than likely

animal, such as a raccoon, we
would like to see at least an
alert declared with the advent
of the verified case of rabies.
There are a lot of raccoons
in Gulf County, and with one
case reported, there is a
distinct possibility there are
others lurking in the wings.
Of course, the ordinance is
mainly aimed at keeping pets
under control and requiring
them to be innoculated period-
ically. Even if rabies weren't
particularly a problem here in
Gulf County, we would be in
favor of that provision to
alleviate any possibility of it
becoming a problem with pets
at any given time.
We think it only fair that
people who have pets should
be responsible for their safety
and for the safety of people
they might come into contact
with.
We hope the County Com-
mission moves ahead on this
ordinance, refines it, and
adopts it for our people 'and
then takes steps to see that it
is enforced.
That little old require-
ment of having the ordinance
enforced will be all important.

Good Reason Prevailed


Once again, Ward Ridge
has overwhelmingly voted to
become a part of the City of
Port St. Joe. We're glad they
did because we think such a
deal will do nothing but help
both Ward Ridge and Port St.
Joe.
Port St. Joe is sort of
bottled in and has its possibil-
ities for growth of the city
limited by natural barriers
which would be all but impos-
sible to hurdle.
For Ward Ridge, it would
have been the height of folly


for that small city-even if it
had grown to any size at
all-to imitate the services
already offered by the city of
Port St. Joe. It would have
been a waste of money to have
another police department,
another fire department, an-
other water and sewer ser-
vice, etc.
It was mandatory, in our
opinion, that either Port St.
Joe annex with Ward Ridge or
Ward Ridge annex with Port
St. Joe. We were glad to see
reason prevail.

Gremlins Have A Hey-Day When They Get Loose In Our Printing Plant


I DON'T KNOW what makes
gremlins become so active at times
and yet remain so dormant at other
times. I'm living proof that happens,
however; especially the part about
the gremlins becoming active. With
me, when they begin to stir around,
they are usually super active and not
just your ordinary active.
There are so many things in my
everyday life to go wrong, I some-
times feel as if I have a whole tribe of
gremlins assigned just to me. I know,
of course, my problems are nothing
compared to yours. At the very
least, mine can't be any worse than
yours are. We all know just how
aggravating a gremlin can be and how
it agitates, aggravates and irritates
each and every one of us.
Newspapering is known world-
wide for its gremlins and seems to
breed more of the pesky things than is
its normal share.
Even in Reader's Digest, there is
a special corner in the magazine, each
and every month, for miscues, slips of
the pencil, the word and the syntax in
newspapers, which were so slippery
they could get by the editor who wrote


the words, the typesetter who set the
type, the proofreader who is paid to
look for errors, the dark room

who usually makes the printing plate
for the press, and the ever-inquisitive
pressman who reads the plates as he
mounts them on the press for printing.
Even the gang who is gathered around
the end of the printing press to snatch
up the first one off the press to glean
over the pages for any such gremlin
which may have slipped through all
this alertness, fail to recognize his
presence.
It is usually someone who calls


LAST WEEK, A king-size gremlin
slipped up on us here at The Star.
One thing about gremlins, is that
they are selective. They won't bother
to come around where they can't do a
lot of damage at one setting.
They're much like termites,
which stay out of the wood in your
house which is easily and cheaply
replaced. If a termite shows up, it will
be in the least accessible, most


Last week, for instance, we lpst an
entire roll of film containing some of
the most important pictures we have
taken in weeks. The gremlins did their
usual competent job and completely
annihilated that roll of film with all
those important pictures.
As a matter of fact, it was two
rolls of film.
There were pictures made at the
public hearing of the Highland View


bridge last Thursday. There was an
automobile wreck in which two
elderly people were injured. There
was a presentation of a flag to the
courthouse by Veterans' Service
Officer Jim Sealey. The flag had flown
over the nation's capitol. There was a
shower for a pretty young lady who
would have'made a definite improve-
ment on the looks of the paper last
week had her picture appeared on our
pages as it was planned for it to do.
There were other pictures, too,
but you get the drift of my plight with
the gremlins.
+ + + ++
WHEN WE DEVELOPED that
roll of film last week, it was revealed
the gremlins had been out taking
pictures of something or other and
had stuck their exposed film back in
our new film box. The supposedly new
film, of course, was innocently picked
up and placed in the camera for its
duties, and once again had a layer of
pictures placed on its sensitive face.
But, when you use a roll of film twice,
it's like trying to chew a piece of gum
again you chewed yesterday. It loses


something in the translation.
+++++
WE BUY FILM in the bulk and
wind our own rolls of film here at The
Star. The newly wound rolls are
stacked up high on a shelf where they
are only touched by human hands
wheA they are placed on that shelf and
when they are removed to be placed in
a camera.
Somebody, somewhere, some-
how or sometime-we think it was the
gremlin family which resides in our
building-placed a can of film on that
shelf which had made a trip through
one of our cameras first.
The roll of film used prior to or
after the offending roll showed no ill
effects, so you can see how selective
our gremlins are.
We called Wendell Campbell and
alerted him to the infestation of
gremlins and he just chuckled and
quipped, "If I come up with a formula
which will kill off gremlins, I'm going
to use it on my wife. She is bothered by
the gremlins something terrible!"
He ought to know. He's probably
the biggest gremlin in her life.

wake up suddenly and think it was a
stranger outside his bedroom window
at 6 in the morning. "Josh, it's
Daddy," I said a little louder. My feet
are freezing and he sleeps like his
mother. I beat on the window and yell-
ed "Josh, wake up!"
He stuck his head through the
blinds "Hi, Dad, what are you doing
out there? Where's your shirt?"
"Go around and open the back
door son and I'll tell you all about it."
Jesse wakes up an hour later with
red eyes, a headache, a stomach ache
and a temperature of 102 degrees.
Josh gets off to school on time, of
course we didn't have breakfast but I
gave him some money and told him to
get an extra milk at break. I called the

young'un. The only time I left the
house was at supper time when I went
to pick up the sandwiches.
Jess is still sick the next morning.
I begin to think that maybe I ought to
get him some medicine. I did fix
breakfast. I got up an hour early and
put some bread in the toaster. Josh
didn't want to eat 'cause we couldn't

hour on that toast. I made him eat it.
Jess and I had another exciting
day of game shows and picture
puzzles. Josh came in after school
wanting to go coon hunting. I explain-
ed to Josh once more the rule of no

said he was just tired of staying in the
house. He was tired of staying at

running a coon. We had a good run,
lost a dog for a while and it got late
pretty quick. We had planned to be
home about 9:30 or 10:00. We came
out of the woods about midnight.
The next morning Jess was fine
and ready for school. Josh had red
eyes, a headache, a stomach ache and
a temperature of 102 degrees. I did the

Our Town Mayberry USA

IF YOU ASKED TEN people who live north of Tallahassee, east of
Apalachicola or west of Panama City where Port St. Joe is, chances are
they won't know.
When people ask me where Port St. Joe is, I tell them it's, located a
little north of Miami. I moved back here because this is a small town. If
everybody finds out what we've got here, it won't be long before it will be
like Memphis.
Some people won't agree with me but our town is hot too much unlike
Mayberry. If you don't think it is, consider the following:
*- +++ + +* .
OUR TOWN, LIKE Mayberry, is small. There is no question about
that. We have, however,, many distinct advantages over Mayberry. For
one thing we are located on the Gulf of Mexico and St. Joe Bay.
We are not big enough to be a tourist town butiVe enioy all the
advantages of the Gulf and the bay without the hassle of the tourists.
How about our mayor? Our mayor'wears two hats. He's in private
business and is also our mayor. Pate's Service Center is awfulltime job
and I understand the mayorship gets that way from time to time. Many
people don't understand the reason Frank wants to be mayor: The maiti
one is his wife.

DO YOU KNOW OF a town where doctors still make house calls?
This is the only one I know of Oh, there was a nurse of .some sort that
would come to your house in Memphis but no doctors would:
I called our doctor one night when our son was sick and he came right
over. I didn't expect him to but he did and it was a pleasant surprise:.
How about that, Atlanta, Nashville and Memphis?

THE PURCHASE OF AN air conditioner shortly after coming to Port
St. Joe turned out to be quite an experience. The owner and I selected one
and I told him it might be Saturday afternoon before I couldpick it up. He,
handed me the key to the warehouse and said, "This is the key and there's
the air conditioner. I won't be heredSaturday, I'll be playing golf. Come in
some time Monday and we'll settle up." :'
How about that New Orleans-, Dallas and Little Rock?'

I'LL ADMIT THAT Luther, our local barber, is two or three cuts
above Floyd but he's colorful just the same. He's the only barber I know
of that finds out your.fartherest destination before he cuts your hair and: :
cuts it accordingly. A "Panama City" and "Tallahassee" haircut are'
altogether different. Let Luther explain it to you.

FOR GOOD FOOD AND information there's Pauline's Restaurant.
The good food is cooked in the kitchen and-the information comes from
the "Town Table" where all the coffee drinkers meet and solve all the
world's problems. I believe they could perform surgery if it became ,
necessary or a bet was placed on it.

We all know that stress is putting
more and more pressure on us. Our
hope for a perfect society is slipping
through our fingers.
No one really understands what is
happening in the world. So much
happens every day that it is hard to
even remember the headlines.
On the international level we hear
of terrorists, galloping AIDS, arms
races, earthquakes and mud slides. In
our own country we look at crime
statistics, unemployment, political
corruption, goof-ups and oversights.
In our local communities we struggle
with taxes, compete for grades and
jobs, and try to keep the roof from
leaking.
Every symbol of stability is under,
attack. Doctors, lawyers, and many
other professionals are viewed as part
of the problem, rather than part of the
solution. Teachers are often thought
of as frustratorsof our youth, and the
clergy are accused of being out of
touch with reality.
The negative onslaught' from
every quarter is contributing to a
'neutralized' attitude among some of
our people. We see no solution, so we
go with the flow. We say that material
things don't have a hold on us, but we
never get rid of anything. We say that
money can't buy happiness, but we
don't even believe ourselves. We
cherish the simple life, but we
continue to complicate our existence
by seeking more and better products.
'The more ineutralized we become,
the more likely we are to see right as
wrong and wrong as right. Frustrated
teens turn on to sex and drugs. Bored
housewives turn to soap operas and

cocktails. Husbands, disappointed by
dead-end jobs, live for weekends of
beer and fishing. And all of us spend
too much time vegetating in front of
our sacred TV sets.
Most analysts are now in agree-
ment that by every scale of measure-
ment our society is in moral chaos.
Institutions and individuals are
crumbling under the pressure.
Yet I personally know a lot of
contented people. And I don't mean
those who insulate themselves from
reality, or ignore life's difficulties.
The people I am speaking of have as
many problems as anyone else. But
they face reality and, deal with
frustration in constructive ways. And
while. they are at it, they are also
helping others through hard times.
I can name a long list of people in
our community who are students,
HRS workers, alcoholism counselors,
Church leaders, mill workers, health
care specialists, guidance clinic coun-
selors, school system employees,
court house employees, etc. who are
reasonably happy and content with
their stations in life. There are two
things that all of these people have in
common that contribute to their
effectiveness.
First of all, people who really
cope well have an ongoing relation-
ship with God. This doesn't mean that
they are perfect, or that they solve all
their problems. But it does mean that
they know where to start when a
problem comes their way. Knowing
where to start is the most important
step in coming to grips with life's
difficulties.

Patricia Amanda Abercrombie and John Paul Blount

Couple to Wed


Mrs. Lou Abercrombie of Jack-
sonville, Alabama has announced the
engagement and forthcoming mar-
riage of her daughter, Patricia
Amanda, to John Paul Blount, son or
Mr. and Mrs. Paul J. Blount of Port
St. Joe. She is also the daughter of
Charles Abercrombie of Gulf Shores,
Alabama.
The bride-elect is a graduate of
Jacksonville State University. She is
employed as an accountant with the
Federal Aviation Administration in
Atlanta, Georgia.
Her fiance is a graduate of Troy
State University. He is employed as
an auditor with the U.S. Army Audit
Agency in Atlanta, Ga.
The wedding is planned for May
23at 11:00 a.m. at the home of Mr. and


Mrs. David Jenkins, aunt and uncle of
the bride. A reception will follow
immediately.

H.V. Baptist

Honors Pastor

The Highland View Baptist
Church will be honoring their pastor
and his family, Rev. and Mrs. Jimmy
Clark, this Sunday following the
morning service.
A covered dish lunch will be served.
All are welcome to come and help
them honor their pastor.
The church is located at 301
Fourth Street, Highland View.


Secondly these people are
concerned enough about others to be
active care givers. They try to help
other people deal with perplexities.
Some of these people seek vocations
that permit them to be professional
care givers. But more often than not,
they just show concern by words of
encouragement and acts of kindness
as they go through each day.
Those of us who are religious in
our temperament see spiritual sour-
ces at the center of every problem.
And sometimes we are too quick to


give simple answers for hard pro-
blems. But experience indicates that a
personal commitment to God is still
the best place to start in solving
problems.
If you have not takenthat first
step with the Lord, this could be the
best time. And if you already have a
mature relationship with the Lord,
this could be a good time to renew it.
Every question may not be answered,
and every problem may not be solved,
but you will have taken the right first
step.

CARD OF THANKS
Our sincere thanks to the friends
of John Robert Williams and family
for all the kindness shown at the time
of our loss. We will never forget your
thoughts, prayers, and deeds. God
bless you.


African Violet Program


Presented to Gardeners


At the March 12 meeting of the
Port St. Joe Garden Club, Mrs. Lea
Johnsen presented a very interesting
program on African violets. She had a
number of her plants with her to
illustrate her talk.
Mrs. Johnsen explained that in
order to get the best results, the
African violet needs a small pot and a
very little moisture. She said it is best
to use a wiqk for watering the plant
sparingly. When the plant becomes
too large for the pot, it should be
transferred to a slightly larger pot.
The speaker stressed that' the
plants should not be watered more
than once a week, when a little
vinegar or root tone may be added.
Mrs. Johnsen said the violets may
be started from a single leaf. Again,
only a little water is used for rooting.
"You may have to learn by doing",
she conculded.
Mrs. Frenchie Ramsey made the


suggestion that the club might want to
sponsor a flower arranging school to
raise money for the club. She asked
the club members to think about it.
The president, Mrs. Ethel Brid-
ges, alerted the members of the
coming election of officers and urged
everyone to participate.

Sharks Edge Tigers to Maintain



A Perfect Conference Record


The Sharks baseball team played
.500 ball during the past week, losing
by two runs to a top-notch Marianna
team and winning by one run in extra
innings over the Blountstown Tigers.
Saturday afternoon, the Sharks
traveled to Marianna to meet the
Bulldogs and collected six hits in an
8-6 loss to the 'Dogs.
Southpaw Tim Wilder went the
distance for the Sharks, giving up six
hits, three walks and striking out six.
It was a see-saw contest before
the Bulldogs finally took the lead in
the sixth inning and put up a stiff
defense against the Sharks, shutting
them out in the seventh and final
inning.
Randy Wilder led the shark
hitting attack with two doubles and
two RBI. Joe Norton rapped two
singles and Marty Williams and Cris
Revell each rapped a single.
The junior varsity played in the
second game of a double header
afternoon, losing by a close 6-5 score.

PSJ, 6, Tigers, 5 *
Tuesday afternoon, the Sharks
edged the Blountstown Tigers, 6-5 in a
game which went extra innings.
Mickey Gainnie went all the way
on the mound for the Sharks, giving
up six hits, walking four and getting


nine strike-outs.
The score was tied, 5-5 at the end
of the regulation seven innings, before
Tim Wilder drove in Jamie Vathis
with a single in the eighth inning for
the winning run. Vathis had reached
first on a single. Matthew Taylor
walked and Bill Ramsey advanced the
runners with a bunt, before Wilder
slapped a single into short right field
to score Vathis with the winning run.
The Sharks had eight hits in the
game. Wilder's two-out Texas leaguer
into right field was the big hit of the
game. Micky Gainnie slammed a one
run double; Tim Davis laid down a
one run single and Joe Norton, Randy
Wilder, Jamie Vathis and Matthew
Taylor each had singles.

GAMES COMING UP
In games coming up during the
week, the Sharks will travel to
Tallahassee Saturday to meet the
Florida High Demons in a double
header which begins at 12:00 noon.
Both the Demons and the Sharks are
undefeated in conference play and one

33.7 Million Visit Florida

Attractions During 1986


More than 33.7 million people
from the U.S. and Canada visited
Florida in 1986, setting an all-time
record for state tourism, Commerce
Secretary Jeb Bush announced re-
cently.
Bush said 3.6 million more
visitors traveled to Florida in 1986
than in 1985, an increase of 12 percent
over the previous year's total of 30.1
million.
"1986 was a great year for Florida
tourism," Bush said. "There is no
doubt, now that the figures are in, that
1986 was the banner year for tourism
the industry predicted it would be."
Bush attributed the increase to
several factors, including a strong
U.S. economy, low gasoline prices, the
opening of new attractions in the
state, and aggressive marketing
efforts by the Division of Tourism and

listed in error.
The- correct date is Nov. 6.
Muzzleloading gun hunters should

Camp from Florida's pediatric onco-
logy centers. There are two camp
sessions, August 9-15 and August
16-22.
Activities at R.O.C.K. Camp
include swimming, canoeing, fishing,
horseback riding and arts and crafts.
However, medication and treatment
are essential parts of each camper's
daily routine. There is an infirmary
and qualified physicians and nurses
are on the premises 24 hours a day to
handle medical needs. Air conditioned
cabins with full bath facilities are
provided.
Perhaps the most important
benefit that R.O.C.K. Camp offers is
camaraderie. Young people faced
with cancer now have the chance to
meet others close in age who share a
similar health problem and build
lasting friendships. Some of the
counselors are former cancer patients
who attended R.O.C.K. Camp when
-they were younger. ACS volunteers
and social workers play an important
role in the program, too.

Your Sweet Corn Probably Developed at U of F


By: ROY LEE CARTER
If you ate fresh corn on the cob
last summer, and found that it tasted
especially sweet, you might have been
enjoying an extra sweet corn variety
that was developed several years ago
by the University of Florida's Insti-
tute of Food and Agricultural Sci-
ences. Although this hybrid, called
,"Florida Staysweet", has not re-
placed standard popular corn varie-
ties, it has been gaining increasing
use by both commercial growers and
home gardeners.
As its name implies, "Florida
Staysweet" corn keeps sweet flavor
long after it's been harvested, unlike
common sweet corn, which begins to
taste starchy soon after it's picked.
According to Extension Vegetable
Specialist Jim Stephens of the Univer-
sity of Florida's Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences, the key to this
hybrid's sweetness is in its genetic
makeup.
A new gene added to "Florida
Staysweet" gives this corn, a nine
percent sugar content, compared to
only a three percent sugar content in
regular hybrids. The higher sugar
content also means that "Florida
Staysweet" has less starch in its
kernels thark regular hybrids. Ob-
viously, thqse factors give this variety
a true staysweet power..
In addition to its improved flavor,
"Florida Staysweet" has shown some


moisture proof bag, and they should
be stored in a cool dry area. If the seal
is broken, moisture in the air will
cause the seeds to lose their vitality
quite rapidly. So, a seed bag that has
been opened should be resealed as
soon as'possible.
Recommended planting dates for
"Florida Staysweet" are from mid-
March to mid-April in North Florida;
from mid-February to the first of
April in Central Florida.


CARTER
resistance to northern leaf blight a

common sweet corn hybrids.
If you'd like to include "Florida
Staysweet" in your backyard garden
this year, you can obtain the seeds
from your local garden center.
The seeds will be packaged in a

Elementary Kids


Support "No Drugs"


Since this hybrid has so little
starch in the kernels, its rate of
germination and degree of seedling
vigor may be less than for the
commonly grown sweet corn hybrids.
To solve this problem, simply plant
extra seed in the row, and thin the
seedling plants to the proper spacing.
One precaution, make sure you
keep plantings of "Florida "Stay-
sweet" isolated from any regular
sweet corn you or your neighbors may


be growing by at least four weeks
difference in planting dates, or by at
least 500 feet of distance. This is
necessary because pollen from any of'
the regular sweetcorn hybrids that
falls on "Florida Staysweet" silks will
cause starchy, unsweet kernels on the
*ears, and destroy their excellent
flavor.
In summary, "Florida Stay-
sweet" is an improved sweetcorn
hybrid, developed by the University of


Florida's Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences which is gain-
ing popularity with commercial grow-
ers and backyard gardeners alike. 'It
has three times the sugar content as
the regular corn hybrids, and retains
its sweetness for a much longer period
of time after harvest. So, if the corn
that you bite into this summer tastes
particularly sweet, don't be surprised.
"Florida Staysweet" may have
reached your table.


The fourth, fifth and sixth grade
students at Port St. Joe Elementary
School are having an opportunity to
join a strong support network against
drugs.

Program launched a nationally re-
cognized club against drugs Just Say

Teacher .Association is the club's
community sponsor. Officers of the
PTA are: Charlotte Pierce, president,
Pam Lawrence, vice president; Jan
Nobles,. secretary; and Janice Cox,
treasurer.
Dr. James E. Hord, director of the


Northwest Florida Drug Council,
Panama City, and Mrs. Patricia
Odom, Prevention Coordinator for the
Council and Supervisor of the 6 county
prevention program, Marianna, both
strongly support the formation of
these clubs on school campuses.
Mrs.'Gwen Spivey, the Council's
Drug Prevention Instructor for Gulf
and Calhoun counties, is working with
Mrs. McKiernan to launch to strong
club.
Mrs.. McKiernan "emceed" the
assembly program. The following
participated in the program: Gerald
Lewter, principal; Mrs. Gwen Spivey,
Sheriff Al Harrison, the Highland

Christopher Cox, and Hollie Hendrix
from Port St. Joe High School. They
were the winners of the Rap Contest at
the high school. Their sponsor is Mr.
Billy Stewart.
The program made a strong
public statement against drugs.

It's Time to Fertilize Your Trees


Ideal times for fertilizing vary
considerably in Florida, but home-
owners traditionally feed their trees
in the spring in anticipation of bud
growth and a need for nourishment.
Fertilizer can be applied to keep trees
healthy or with the hope of nursing
sickly trees back to health. Whatever
your objective, the Florida Depart-
ment of Agriculture and Consumer
Services' Division of Forestry recom-
mends following certain proven prac-
tices.
"Most homeowners simply


spread the fertilizer on the ground
around the tree," says Phil Gornicki,
Urban Forestry Specialist with the
Division of Forestry. "However,
surface applications promote shallow
root systems that may be more easily
affected by drought conditions and
lets competing vegetation absorb
some of the fertilizer before it can get
to the tree's roots."
According to Gornicki, foresters
generally recommend the hole or
punch-bar method of fertilization for
shade trees. This involves punching


two-inch holes 12 to 18 inches deep in
the ground. The holes should be two
feet apart starting about three feet
from the trunk and extending out as
far as branches extend at three-foot
intervals completely around the tree.

"For trees six inches or less in
diameter, distribute 112 pounds of
fertilizer per inch of tree diameter
equally in the holes," Gornicki says.
"For trees larger than six inches, use
three pounds of fertilizer per inch of
tree diameter, also distributed equal-

ly throughout the holes."
Gornicki says the best combin-
ation of ingredients to use is 6-6-6 or
8-8-8 but he cautions against applying
it too close to the tree trunk because it
could cause injury to the trunk base or
root collar. He also warns against
over-fertilization. Too much fertilizer
will burn roots and leaves, so it's best
to fertilize with a little less more often
than too much not often enough.
Drop the correct amount of
fertilizer into the holes and then fill
them with top soil, shredded manure
or peat moss. Close the holes by
stepping on them gently.
Gornicki offers a reminder of the
way to identify the ingredients in
fertilizer. "The sequence of numbers
on fertilizer is always the same with
the first number referring to nitrogen,
the second phosphorus and the third
potassium," he says. So a 6-6-6
fertilizer contains equal parts- of
nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium.
"If a fourth number is shown," he
adds, "it always refers to the
magnesium content."
For further information about
when or how to fertilize your trees,
contact your local Division of Forest-
ry office. It's listed in most telephone
directories under Florida Department
of Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices.

HOW
THlS RAKE
CAN SAVE
YOUR LIFE.
This simple garden tool is
a firefighter. It can help you clear
away brush and leaves that act
like kindling around your home..
And you.
So if you live near the forest,
do a little raking. And that's not
all. Landscape your home with a
fire retardant plant like ivy. Use
spark arrester screens on your
chimney and vents. And put fire
retardant material on your roof
and underneath your house
where it is exposed.
Because a forest fire burns
more than trees.


Amnesty Days provides an excel-
lent opportunity for citizens of each
county to dispose of their hazardous
waste such as solvents, oil based
products, paint strippers, pesticides
and insecticides at the mobile collec-
tion facility.

TIi'^BB-*^


Each participant (school, home
owner, farmers, government agencies
and small businesses) may bring a 55
gallon drum or 450 pounds in for free
and proper disposal. The purpose of
Amnesty Day's is to protect our
precious underground drinking water.


and a wide range of arts and crafts.
Participants should register and pay a
fee of $3.00. Limited transportation
will be provided. Call 229-8466 for
additional details. No one will want to
miss this exciting day of fun and
games for the senior citizens of north
Florida.
The Gulf County seniors wish to
extend their thanks to members of the
First United Methodist Church for
their donation of a couch, and to the
Gulf County Sheriff's Department .for
transporting a piano from the Wewa
center to the home of its donor in Port
St. Joe. We feel really fortunate to
have such wonderful friends.

80%. At Tyndall Federal, we
think our members are worth
the extra money.

TWO.
It's quick and easy! All our
loan interviews are by appoint-
ment, so you won t spend
anxious time waiting in a
crowded lobby. And we'll pro-
cess your application within the
hour. You don't wait days or
weeks for approval!

THREE.
You get a brilliant deduc-
tion at tax time! Changes in the
tax law have made home equity
loans more attractive than ever.
The IRS has taken away many of your
tax shelters, but the interest you
pay on the Perfect Tyn is still largely
deductible.

FOUR.
You get a low interest rate! And
it's an honest rate that won't double
within months, like some come-on


writing a check. In fact, that's
exactly what you do. For whatever
you want, whenever you want!
There's no need to re-apply each
time you borrow!

SIX.
You pay no points! Some
lenders charge you up to 4% of the


of officers Paula Pendarvis and Kelli
Saleh. Elitha Gant, a LOTS sharehold-
er served as artist for several cards.
President Aaron Wilson and share-
holder Jack McInnis used their
experiences in the computer lab to
design the LOTS' valentine cards.
New officers for 1986-87 are:'


Aaron Wilson, president; Nicholas
Rolack, vice president; Peter Klope,
director of personnel & coordinator of
tutorial program; Paris Yancy, as-
sistant personnel director; and David
Brown, morning duty coordinator.
Also several interim positions are
held by students.
