County Receives State Money to



Build Road to Proposed Plant


Time Moves Up


One Hour Sunday

It's time to change time.
Saturday night, the rest of the world will move their clocks, watches
and assorted time-pieces ahead by an hour to ,move up to Daylight
Savings time. You are invited to join the rest of the world in the new time
frame.
Officially, the time changes at 2:00 in the morning, Sunday, but
fudging is allowed.
When you go to bed Saturday night, set your clock ahead by an hour.
The change from Standard Time is three weeks early this year.
Rather than wait until the last Saturday in April to re-set the clock, it is
being done the first Saturday in April.
The shift to Daylight Savings Time is a gimmick to allow all of us to
have a little more daylight left at the end of the day.
The new time.will hang around until the last Saturday of October,
when once again we will all set our clocks back and revert to the old
Standard Time.
Remember, it's "Spring ahead in the spring and fall back in the fall".



.Robinson iW -'Handle City`s

Municipal, Election In May
Elections Supervisor Cora Sue Robinson will handle all phases of the
Port St. Joe Municipal Election this year, and has scheduled May 12 as
the official balloting day.
Ms. Robinson has served notice on prospective voters that
registration books for signing up voters, will be closed at the end of the
business day on April 11. State law requires registration books be closed
30 days prior to election.
Another important date concerning the Municipal Election is April
21. Books for the candidates to qualify to seek election will close that day
at the close of the business day. Candidates in Port St. Joe elections must
be residents of the City and pay qualification fees of $35.00.
In the current election, a Mayor and Commissioners from Groups I
and II will be selected, as well as deciding on a special question of
whether or not to accept Ward Ridge into the City Limits of Port St. Joe.
Current incumbents filling these posts are Mayor Frank Pate and
Commissioners Bill Fleming and Edwin Williams.



Hearing Will Look at Shellfish

Rules In Bay, Indian Lagoon
The Department of Natural Resources will conduct a public hearing
in the Gulf County Courtroom for designation reclassification of portions
of St. Joseph Bay and Indian Lagoon in regards to shellfishing.
Shellfishing in St. Joseph Bay is almost entirely confined to clam
harvesting. Indian Lagoon, on the Franklin County line, is also included
in the hearing and has oyster production in its waters to be considered.
The hearing, set up by the Department of Natural Resources, will
prohibit taking of shellfish from the area around the mouth of the Gulf
County Canal, which empties into the Bay at Highland View. The
remainder of the bay will be opened to harvesting shellfish.
Indian Lagoon is being considered for "conditioned approval" for
-taking oysters in harvest. The designation means the waters may be shut
down to harvesting in times when it is considered unsafe to consume
oysters taken from the waters. The Lagoon is presently closed to harvest
during periods of heavy rainfall when upland drainage into the Lagoon
is said to carry fecal coliform in unacceptable amounts into the
oyster-bearing waters.
The hearing will begin at 7:30 p.m.



It'll Cost You A Fee to

Pay Your Taxes After April 1
Tuesday afternoon at 5:00 p.m., was the last day to pay 1987 Gulf
County taxes without having to pay a penalty and the day ended with
approximately five to ten percent of the taxes still unpaid, according to
Tax Collector Eda Ruth Taylor.
"I haven't had time to count the number of tax bills still owed, but a
good estimate is that about 400 of the 12,000 tax bills mailed out at the
beginning of the year are still unpaid. That's about what we had left last
year, and it doesn't vary very much from year to year", Taylor said.
The Tax Collector said Tuesday, March 30 was the last day to pay
taxes without a penalty being applied. "After April 30, we go into the
phase of advertising and selling tax certificates", Taylor said. The
county official said last year, her office had to advertise nearly 400 unpaid
tax bills and there were 219 still unpaid when it came time to sell tax
certificates on all unpaid tax statements.
"That isn't a bad percentage of collection", Taylor said.
Taxes paid in April bear a three percent service charge for late fees.
After the April 30 deadline passes, however, the bills will be assessed the
three percent late charge plus the advertising costs for advertising
delinquent taxes.

Predicted Freeze Fails to Show After Rain


Mother Nature backed down
from playing a cruel trick on
Northwest Florida Tuesday night
and brought in one of her finest
spring days of the year Wednesday,
to make up for the gunky stuff she
had tossed the Panhandle for the
past week. .
With TV weathermen warning
all the world that Florida-especial-
ly north Florida-was going to have
freezing temperatures to greet the
first day of April, home owners were
scrambling in a blustery cold
afternoon Tuesday, protecting ten-


der vegetation they didn't already
have protected. The forecast Mon--
day apd Tuesday was that the barely
freezing temperatures would hit the
coastal area of the Panhandle and
even colder inland.
Actually, the temperature dip-
ped to a relatively chilly 42 for this
part of the United States, but didn't
get near the freezing mark.
Port St. Joe's temperature Wed-
nesday morning, was supposed to be
colder than the state of Maine. It
didn't make it.


HEAVY RAINS
What did make it was the
forecast of heavy rains Wednesday
through Monday. Already nearly
nine inches of precipitation over the
average rainfall thus far in the year,
the Panhandle area was literally
soaked with a continuous downpour
which started Wednesday of last
week and continued through early
Tuesday morning of this week. The
rainfall quit just before daybreak
Tuesday, leaving a sodden Gulf
County in its wake.
According to our "official unoffi-


cial" weather person, Emily Sim-
mons, who keeps a running record on
rainfall in Port St. Joe. Mrs.
Simmons says her rain gauge
reported nearly 10 inches of moisture
fell from Wednesday through Tues-
day inorning.
To get down to tenths of an inch,
Mrs. Simmons says four inches of
rain came in Wednesday's downpour
and a total of 5.7 inches fell since last
Saturday.
It's safe to say, we don't need
anymore rain for a day or two.

THURSDAY, APRIL 2,1987


We have always had a
tough struggle with DER and
DNR here in Gulf County,
when we wished to make a
change to our landscape or do
a little meddling with the
water supply. They have been
tough task-masters for our
county. Their zealous concern
for our environment here in
Gulf County is because we are
so near St. Joseph Bay and
have the wherewithal to pol-
lute it to kingdom come if we
took the notion.
Considering our track re-
cord with DER and DNR, and
considering their approval of
a proposed parking area near
the "Stump Hole" on St.
Joseph's Peninsula, it would
seem to us that should be
enough to satisfy people like
the Harbisons of the Audubon
Society of Panama City and
the Fish and Game people.
Fish and Game is dis-
turbed over any onerous ef-
fects this proposed parking lot
may have for feeding migrat-
ing birds and breeding min-
nows in the marsh to be filled
in.
In the first place, no
migratory bird would touch
the area with a 10-foot wing-
span because of the numerous
people who are always in the
area to keep them scared


away. If the marsh should
raise 10 billion small fish, they
couldn't get into either the
Gulf or the Bay from the rain
water puddle which forms the
marsh.
We're not talking about a
marsh out in the wilderness
somewhere. We're talking
about a marsh which has its
southern boundary butting up
to a couple of town houses.
We're talking about a march
which has several thousand
vehicles zooming by within 20
feet of its eastern boundary
every day. We're talking
about an area in which there
are people walking on, .or
fishing from every day of the
year. Birds don't nest in such
congested areas.
We appreciate the Harbi-
son's interest in Gulf County's
welfare, but feel we who live
here and have visual know-
ledge of what is going on in the
area are better qualified to
judge whether or not we're
disturbing the area to any
great extreme.
And, we haven't even
mentioned the hazard to peo-
ple, such an installation would
erase from our county. Usu-
ally, though, people and their
needs are the last to be
considered in cases such as
this.

"Well, If You Insist -

Even before I shoved the truck
into park and switched off the engine,
I was looking the crowd over,
searching for Tom Ford and-or Vickie
Lamberson. You see, if one of them
was here, or horror upon horrors if
they both showed up, I would have to

spotted either, I'd have to abandon

plan E. Plan E is where you yell,
"Fire, Fire," and while everybody
turns to look, you immediately rush
to the tables that's a'holding all the


food. The "E", of course, stands for
emergency.

The Indians and the Whites Struggled Together to Survive In the '30's


AN ARTICLE IN the daily
newspapers on Thursday of last week
caught my eye and caused me to
remember back when I was just a lad
in Creek County, Oklahoma. The
county, of course, was named after
the Creek Indian nation which was
dislodged from the State of Florida by
Andrew Jackson way back yonder
when Florida was just in the process
of becoming a state.
I suppose the Creeks settled .in
other places, also, but there was a
group of them just outside the small
town where we lived. There was even
a Creek Indian group of families who
lived as nearly like the old style of
Indian living as was probably possible
during those modern days of the
1930's.
There were also Indians who lived
.in town. Actually, there was a family
who lived about two blocks from our
home and my brothers and I played
with their children all the time.

WHAT STARTED THIS piece
was an article in the paper which told
of an Indian, Austin Walker, who


struck it rich after learning that
mineral rights he had signed away on
a piece of Creek County property he
had inherited, was null arid void. After
he signed the lease rights away, gas


Bristow Resources, Inc., named after
the town of Bristow, which is about 10
miles from our former hope and
where an uncle of mine still lives.
Another coincidence which made

and oil was discovered on his land
and wells drilled. In the meantime,
Walker was in poverty and couldn't
help himself because everyone
thought he had signed the rights to his
property away in proper fashion.
In the last few weeks it was found
an error had made in the mineral
rights assignment process and Walker
was eligible to receive the royalties
from the property.
The oil company involved was the


time Fibber McGee opened his closet.
There it was, coming over KVOO out

This isn't to say there is no longer
any oil and gas in Creek County.

the article interesting was that the
father of the Indian family I was
telling you about, worked in the oil
fields and had a job which allowed
he and his family to live comfortably.
They were able to afford a radio
which would bring in the Charlie
McCarty and Fibber McGee and
Molly shows on Sunday nights, and we
gathered at their house to listen to the
adventures of Charlie and laugh every


There is. People find it regularly. But,
even in the late '30's and early '40's
when we left there, more people
earned a living doing other things
than earned a living working in the oil
fields.
There was more farming than
there was gushing.
Oil is still a vital part of the
economy in the area, but one has to do
more than drive a railroad spike in the


ground to find it now. Back in the
boom days, one had to take care to not
get oil out of their water well.
++ ++ +
WHAT STRUCK MY fancy about
the article was wondering if Walker
was a descendant of the half dozen or
so families who lived just outside our
small town.
When I was in the fifth or sixth
grade, our teacher took us kids out
into the woods on a field day near the
end of the school year. I don't know
how far we went, but I remember we
left the school house walking and
walked the entire distance we trav-
veled.
We wound up out in the blackjack
woods where this half dozen Indian
families lived in a group in their huts
and kept their animals.
One of the Indians, who all us kids
thought was the chief, had a deer in
captivity which had a leg missing. The
Indian had made the deer a wooden
leg and the deer hobbled around
pretty well on that artificial leg.
It was the first real live deer I had
ever seen.


The Indians showed all us kids
their blankets, their headdresses,
their crafts and handiwork and the
inside of their homes.
Each summer, on the week ends,
this same group of Indians would put
on a show of their native dances, ball
games, etc., and serve barbecued
goat for a fee, in order to raise money
to purchase their staples with. People
would come for miles to see the show
and eat the goat.
This was during the times before
welfare and the government dole.
Whites and Indians alike, who were
having it hard-which most people
were in central Oklahoma during
those days did things like putting on
a dance, selling sandwiches and
making things with their hands to sell
and raise' a little cash.
The Indians and White people
were all in the same condition and
respected one another's attempts to
make it on their own.
It's nice to see at least one Indian
who was facing hard times, make it
without having to do a native dance
around a bonfire.

time at the landing, but I did launch a
boat from there once back in 1973, so I
figured I qualified for the barbecue.
Besides Mr. Gene Boddye had kinda'
told me about the cook out a few days
before and I think that during the
conversation he kinda' invited me.
Look, for a good barbecue and dinner
on the ground you've got to figure that
you should have been invited and plan
accordingly.
I'd eaten a light supper the night
before and no breakfast I was about
as ready as I could get. I headed
toward the crowd around the tables. I
already knew that Tom wasn't here.
He most always hangs pretty close to
the food he doesn't want to be too far
away when it's time to reload. I felt
better already. One place you didn't
want to be in the food line was behind
Tom Ford.
Vickie was a different story. I
couldn't see her but she could still be
here. She likes to use what us
professional eaters call the family
plan. You've seen this one she goes
through the line, filling up four plates
and pausing every so often to remark
to no one in particular but to everyone
in general that Rick is watching the
children. And she's right Rick is
watching little Rick and Kim play in
the sand box back at the house while
Mom eases over behind a tree at
Howard Creek to enjoy a lot of
barbecue. I've used the family plan
myself a time or two.
One glance at those tables told me
that neither Tom nor Vickie had
beaten me here there was too much
food left. I hurried over to Mr. Gene
Boddye and was about to thank him
for the "invitation" when I noticed his
plate. Sonnn, it was a two hander. I
realized by the way he had stacked it
on that this wasn't his first barbecue.
If he goes back for seconds before I
can make it to the table, it would all be
over. Then I spied Waylon Graham
over by the porch. I've seen Waylon
eat before I broke into a cold sweat.
No time for idle chit-chat I made an
all out mad dash for the plates.
Barbecue, baked beans, potato
salad and cole slaw. Son-of-a-gun.
Now they had all kinds of other stuff -
fish, vegetables, breads, etc. but I
remember thinking at the time, why?
Good barbecue, and it was excellent,
baked beans, potato salad and cole
slaw and you don't need nothing else -
you know what I mean?
So as not to appear hoggish, I got
just a little on my plate and then stood
very dclose- to the' tables talking to
everyone that came by. Mrs. Graham
looked at my plate, "Coach, you're not
eating very much."
"Yes ma'am, I'm trying to watch
my weight." When she went to look at
the snake I kinda' smiled as I spooned
up another load of baked beans. And
so it went for about the next hour and
a half as I kept circling the tables.
When I was getting ready to go I
apologized to Mr. Boddye for my
family not being here I explained
about the sickness and all... Mr. Gene
got busy preparing plates for me to
take to them.
Yes sir, good folks and good food
are hard to beat and they had'em both
down at Howard Creek this past
Saturday. Now, they plan to do this
again next year but I'm not about to
give you the dates. Tom Ford and-or
Vickie Lamberson might accidentally

Full and contented,

The Disappearing Sock Mystery

FOR YEARS I HAVE wondered about the strange and sudden
disappearance of socks. Socks, as we all know, don't disappear in pairs.
They disappear one at a time and the one that remains we keep forever,
new and unused.
I have read many theories about this strange phenomenon, none of
which I thought feasible or practical. I have several theories of my own,
most of which I have also discounted.
One of my first theories was that my wife was hiding them from me.
Several times, while she was away shopping or at work, I would search
the house from top to bottom, but I never found a single one. I soon
realized that the socks disappeared before I was married, so I discounted
that theory.-
I AM NOT ONE WHO believes in ghosts or spirits. One night,
however, after hearing some friends talk of the supernatural and a rather
lengthy libation at a local "watering-hole," I returned home and, with my
son's baseball bat in firm hand, attempted to exorcise the
"sock-monster" from our house.
It took the better part of the night and all I accomplished was
embarrassing my wife and family and I had a terrible hangover the next
morning. The socks continued to disappear!

MY MOST FEASIBLE theory was that the washing machine was
eating them. I became so convinced of this that I actually quit worrying
about it for several months.
This theory, however, fell in the well about two years ago. The
washing machine we had for about fourteen years finally quit. We had
repaired it several times and I figured it was a good time to prove my.
theory and get a new washing machine at the same time.
The following Saturday I took the machine apart, piece by piece. The
only things I found were six pennies, three safety pins, two shoe strings
and: a Top-Flight golf ball cover. They were all jammed under the
agitator.
A FRIEND OF MINE, Tomberr Harrison,. thought he had the
perfect solution. He was convinced someone was stealing his socks so he
cut all his socks off just below the turn, where they went toward his toes:
He reasoned that if someone was stealing them, they wouldn't want
half-socks. His socks continued to disappear and he was left with a batch
of ruined socks a"ld a couple of stinking feet.
: + + + + + + + .
I' THINK I HAVE now solved the "sock-mystery." To understand and
appreciate my theory, you must know kids and understand how they
think and operate..
I have caught every one of my kids, at one time or another, wearing
my socks. I have never caught them, however, getting a pair out of mny
sock drawer. Here is what I think is happening to the lost sock.
My kids, one at atime or in pairs so one can be a "look out" sneak
into my room and get a pair of my socks and wear them to school or
wherever. When they take them off at night, they put one in the dirty
clothes hamper to be washed. They take the other.one, the mystery sock,
to their room and hide it in a secret place; probably a secret wall panel
that their mother and I don't know about.
+++++ .
ANYWAY, WHEN THE one in the clothes hamper is washed, they
exchange the dirty one they have hidden for the clean one., When it is
washed they retrieve it plus another pair for another day. It's easy to seb
that after a few days there.are several "single socks" around that no
mate can be found for. All the time this is going on, they are wearing a

-- oy -,m till trying. One day, hopefully will arid when 1 do, I will have
solved one of the greatest mysteries the world has ever known.
: .+ + + .+ + -. .
IN THE MEANTIME, however, I am trying to determine how that
golf ball cover happened to get in our washing machine. I hardly ever
"blade" the ball and I certainly can't chip that well!


I Five Lost On River;


Are Found
Two men and three young chil-
dren were located on the Apalachicola
River Thursday by the Gulf County
Sheriff's Department and Search and
Rescue Squad, after being lost on the
river, in the Kennedy Creek area

and headed downriver. When they
didn't return at the end of the day,
Martha Dowling, at the landing,

Thursday
Marvin McKee, 30, Ben Ruther-

were found, damp, tired and hungry,
but in good condition after their night
in the wilderness.
The two men had guided their
boat into Kennedy Creek, which is
flooded by high waters and became
disoriented. They decided the best
thing to do was to get on dry ground
and await rescue.

"I can't answer that," she said in
concluding the press conference.
Earlier, Kirkpatrick had outlined
the three goals in creating the
program in 1983.
;"We wanted to purge from our
environment as much hazardous
waste as possible, 'raise the public
awareness of hazardous waste and
reduce public anxiety," he.said.
Assistant DER Secretary John
Shearer said the program had been "a
national model" and -cited "its
success here in Florida that other
states have adopted."

Johnny Adams' spring turkey gobbler season started off good this year.
Johnny brought this large tom turkey by The Star office Friday morning. He
said he killed the bird in the LakeWimico swamp. He had a story to tell with his
turkey, too. It seems this turkey wasn't the one Johnny was stalking. "I was
calling another turkey to a point where I could get a shot and when I yelped on
my caller, this one jumped me from behind and started clawing me", Johnny
said. He didn't claw for long, however.

Will you still respect your IRA in the morning?


It's the Cinderella Story of 1987.
On April 15, you're scrambling
around for a nice investment vehicle-a
$2000 IRA contribution, just in time to
beat the tax deadline.
Then you wake up the next day to
find you've got a round figure, all right.
In an IRA that's not earning its keep.
Come to Florida National.
We'll set you up with a self-directed
retirement account that has real
earnings potential. (


High interest yields, for starters.
With investment options that include
stocks, bonds, U.S. Treasury and other
securities. Mutual funds, too.
Plus, with a self-directed IRA you
make your own investment decisions
instead of paying high cost brokerage
fees.
Open your account by April 15, and
you'll still get a full deduction on your
1986 return.
Short-and long-term tax benefits.


High yields. Retirement security. For
an investment you can really respect,
talk to a Florida National banker about
your self-directed IRA today.





Expect more from us."

Governor Bob Martinez has de-
clared April as Stroke Club Aware-
ness Month. The purpose of the
proclamation is to make the commu-
nity aware that stroke clubs exist and
that they are a self-help group of
individuals dedicated to helping
stroke patients maintain their identity
and become contributing member s of
the community.
These clubs reach out to the 86,000
citizens of our state who have been
affected by stroke, the number one
disabling disease. Their meetings
provide an opportunity for stroke
families and friends to inter-relate,
receive professional counselling on
how to cope with their disease, and to
participate in social and educational
activities.
The 47 stroke clubs in Florida
work closely with the American Heart
Association whose mission is to
reduce premature death and disabi-
lity from cardiovascular diseases and
stroke.
A stroke club conference titled "A
Day of Triumph" is scheduled for
April 25, 1987 at the Hilton Inn Florida
Center, Orlando, from 9:00 a.m. 3:15

The program includes the follow-
ing topics: Recovery from Stroke,

Sharks Drop Two Games, Each


by Only A One Run Margin


It may be a good thing the Sharks
had one of its games cancelled by rain
over the past week, as the team
seemed to be in one of those
mid-season slumps so many baseball
teams go through. The Sharks had
mqre than enough men on base in both
their games this past week to win, but
just couldn't get the timely hit to drive
the runners home. It has been that
kind of week.
Sneads 2, PSJ 1
The game with the Sneads Pirates
last Thursday afternoon was a good
example of the men left on base hex
which has plagued the Sharks for the
past week.
The Sharks had runners on base
* on every inning of the game. Most of
the time, the runners were even
advanced to second base, but still they
couldn't be pushed across home plate.
Twice, the Shaiks had the bases

stop Bill Ramsey, as first baseman
Marty Williams watches.

In Loving Memories
of Bruce Jones
Measure your lifetime in blessings,
Not in the years you have known...
Coitnt up the number of people you've
touched,
Add up the love you have shown. .
Measure your days in the gladness
That you and your loved ones have
shared .
Tally the smiles on the faces of friends,
* Total the times you have cared .
Yes, measure your lifetime in blessings,
And you'll always remain in your prime
For youth is a feeling you keep in your

loaded, and in the seventh inning, it
was a bases loaded situation with only
one out with their two big sluggers
coming to the plate. But those
sluggers popped out to end the game
and strand three big runs.
Tim Wilder went the route on the
mound ard gave up only two hits and
walked one. He picked up 11 strike
outs in the game and the Pirates had
only one of their two runs earned.
Wilder should have been the winning
pitcher, but the RBI hex had the team
in its grips Thursday.
The Shark batters banged out
eight hits against the Sneads pitcher,
including doubles by David Staab and
Marty Williams. Williams also had a
single, driving in Tim Wilder for the
only run. Wilder and Mickey Gainnie
also had singles and Jamie Vathis
rapped out two singles.
The Sharks committed two errors

Saturday, the Shark bats were
still strangely silent when it counted,
allowing their county rival, Wewa
hitchka to win, 3-2, in a game
postponed from Friday afternoon
because of a heavy downpour of
rainfall all day long.
Mickey Gainnie was on the mound
for the Sharks and pitched good:
enough to win, allowing only four hits,
two walks and struck out six. The

Boys' Track Team Travels to Two Meets


The boys track team participated
in two track meets last week. Last
Tuesday, the Sharks finished in 2nd
place in a 10 team track meet held at
Greensboro. On Thursday, several
members of the team traveled to
Gainesville where they participated in
the 44th annual Florida Sunkist
Relays.
The Florida Sunkist Relays are
regarded as one of the finest track and
field relays in the U.S.A. and this
year's event attracted more than 4000
competitors from high schools and
colleges from all over the United
States. Also, this meet was the largest
meet ever contested in the state of
Florida. Port St. Joe was represented
well as several members placed high
in their respective events.
The following are the results of
last weeks two meets:
Florida Relays: Mike Byrd, 400
meter, 6th; Terry Quinn, 400 meter,
7th; and Terrance Farmer, shot put,
7th.
Greensboro meet: 1st Terry
Quinn, 440 yard dash; 2nd Terrance
Farmer, shot put; 3rd Leonard Ray,

counted as earned runs.
Joe Norton collected two of the
Sharks three hits, including an RBI
double. Mickey Gainnie- had a single
for the Sharks' other hit.
McCloud, Eubanks, Attaway and
Paul each had singles for the Gators.
David Paul earned the win for the
Gators, allowing the Sharks three
hits.

Patrol Teams with Bl


Mrs. Nelson's and Miss Whit-
field's fifth grade classes earned a
free pizza party at a Panama City
pizza restaurant recently.
A creative new "Book It" pro-
gram, participated in by the classes,
was designed to encourage young


children to read. The program lasted
five consecutive calendar months,
from October 1, 1986 to February 28,
1987.
All of the children in these classes
read the minimum number of books.
Each child was presented with an


honor diploma signed by the school
principal and classroomm teacher upon
completion ot the program.
The classes are shown in the photo
above, as they embarked on a school
bus late last month to claim their
.prize.

tapes were distributed to all Florida
television stations on February 26 by
the Highway Patrol.
"We are proud of our relationship

common goals of highway safety. All

watching high performance military
fighter aircraft, and the excellent
parallel drawn between our troopers
and the fighter pilots will serve safety
well in the coming months."


It has been a number of years
since polio was the scourge of children
'in the summer time. An organization
known as "March of Dimes", organ-
ized by former President Franklin D.
Roosevelt, himself a victim of the
dreaded paralyzing disease, embark-
ed on a program of stamping out this
sickness which left children with
useless and lifeless limbs.
With the development of the oral
Sabin polio vaccine, the disease is now
largely unknown in the United States
and is under attack in the rest of the
world.
Now, according to Jean Peters,
district representative for the March
of Dimes, in a talk to the Rotary Club
last Thursday, the organization has
targeted a different enemy of young
children-birth defects.
March of Dimes was starting on a
seemingly hopeless task when it set


* Provides added insulation as a roof-over
* Ideal for patio roof

* Can be repainted any color
* Contemporary look


out to conquer polio. Now, it has set its
sights on a problem which baffles
most medical people; .birth defects
and their cause.
Peters told the Rotary Club that
already the research teams of March
of Dimes have come up with some
answers to prevent birth defects from
happening. "Our research has shown
that a mother who contracts rubella
measles while she is pregnant will
almost surely have a child with birth
defects. I The solution for this prob-
lem is obvious. All women of child
bearing age should be innoculated
against rubella", she pointed out.
Another answer research has dug
up is that drinking or drug use by
pregnant women greatly enhances the
chances of a child being born with
birth defects. "Just one drink a week
will do it", she pointed out.


Applications Open for

U.S. Service Academies


Congressman Bill Grant recently
announced that applications for the
military service academies for high
school students who will graduate in
1988 are now available from his office
in Tallahassee. Grant said that young
men and women desiring to attend
West Point, Annapolis, the Air Force
or the Merchant Marine Academy
should also register for the SAT or
ACT exams given at area schools.
"I am extremely pleased with the
caliber of the men and women who
have applied in past years for these
nominations," Grant said. "The aca-
demies are the training grounds for
the men and women who will lead our
armed forces in the years to come."
Applicants should contact' the
Congressman's office at 930 Thomas-
-ie Road. .:iite 101, Tallahassee,


Florida 32303. All applicants must be
legal residents of the Second Congres-
sional District of Florida.

Some of the most common of birth
defects, especially from smoking,
drinking or drug use are low birth
weight. spinal bifida or respiration
distress.
"There's nothing quite so sad as
seeing a helpless little baby with birth
defects and there is nothing quite so
satisfying as being able to help them",
Peters said.



Students to

March In

Super Walk
Each year, tire than 250,000 ,
children are born with birth defects in
the United States. On April 4th,
approximately 2,000 people will con-
verge at the Panama City Marina to
fight that statistic.
The March of Dimes Super Walk
America is one of the largest national
fund raising events for the March of
Dimes. Wednesday, March 4th, Sue
Thomas, Coordinator of Chapter
Services presented the Super Walk to
the students of Port St. Joe Jr. Sr.
High School. Sponsored by the
S.A.V.E. Club, she spoke about birth
defects and their prevention and how
the children can participate in the
event. Sponsor forms were handed out
along with Wendy's Walk Hats to all
who planned to participate.
The participants in this year's
Walk, will walk an 8 mile trek starting
at the Panama City Marina at 8 a.m.,
CST. The walkers will be well
supervised by the Bay County She-
riff's Dept. and the Panama City
Police Dept. Pepsi and water will be
available at the rest stops along with
healthful snacks distributed at the
half way point. School buses will be
provided for transportation to and
from Port St. Joe.
The goal of the March of Dimes
Birth Defects Foundation is to fund
research to eliminate birth defects, as
well as provide medical services and
educational programs.
Anyone wanting additional in-
formation about Super Walk America,
can contact the March of Dimes office
in Panama City at 785-6460 or Mrs.
Maxidie Gant at Port St. Joe High
School.

The Florida Highway Patrol
in cooperation with the U.S. Navy
Blue Angels precision flying team has
coproduced a series of traffic safety
public service video programs ac-
cording to FHP Director, Colonel
'Bobby Burkett.
The FHP Public Information
Section working in concert with the
Navy at the Pensacola Naval Air
Station has created a series of six
.30-second public service announce-
ments addressing traffic safety issues
such as faulty vehicle equipment,
D.U.I., and seat belt use.
"These public service messages
contain excellent aerial footage of the
Blue Angels flying team in action and
the pilots' commentaries on various
safety issues," according to Colonel
Burkett. '.'Seeing our troopers pic-
tured side by side with members of
the elite Blue Angels flying team lends
a high degree of credibility to these
good safety habit messages, which we
hope will help in getting them across
to the motoring public," Burkett

Tomatoes Most Popular Crop for Home Gardens


A Small Amount of Plot Preparation Will Give You An Abundant Crop of Luscious Fruit


By ROY LEE CARTER
Extension Agent
If we had to guess, the one
vegetable that people most often
include in their spring gardens, it
would have to be tomatoes. Nothing
quite compares with the fresh taste of
sun-ripened tomatoes. Judging by the
popularity of this vegetable, most
gardeners feel that raising this
delicious crop is definitely worth the
effort.
To raise any vegetable successful-
ly, you need to begin with adequate
soil preparation. Tomatoes are no
different. Tomatoes need a slightly
acid soil with a pH between
six-point-zero (6.0) and six-point-five
(6.5). If the pHfof your soil is less than
6.0, it is too acid and you should add
lime to correct the problem. But since
some of our Florida soils are slightly
alkaline, you really shouldn't add lime
unless a soil test indicates the need for
it. Then, about five pounds of dolomite
per 100 square feet of garden is the
average recommended rate. Be sure
you work the dolomite into the soil one
to three months before planting. If
hydrated lime is used planting can
immediately be done after applying


ROY LEE CARTER
the lime. If your soil pH is above 6.5
you should add sulfur or a fertilizer
that contains sulfur.
Another important part of soil
preparation is fertilization. I'll also
talk about setting tomato transplants


in the garden, and mention some of
the early cultural care they need. My
information was provided by Exten-
sion Vegetable Specialist Jim Ste-
phens, of the University of Florida's
Institute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences.
There are a couple of schools of
thought on when to add fertilizer.
Some people believe in fertilizing the
soil before planting. If you choose
their method, apply two-and-a-half
pounds of fertilizer for every 100
square feet as a side dressing, and
water thoroughly.
In the other system, fertilizer isn't
added until planting time. Apply five
pounds of 8-8-8 per 100 square feet.,
Mix one-half into the entire bed, and
apply the other half in furrows three
inches from either side of the garden
rows. Three weeks after planting,
apply two-and-a-half pounds per 100
square feet every two or three weeks.
With either method, it's important to
stagger the applications of fertilizer,
adding a total of about 10 pounds per
100 square feet during the growing
season.
Before planting, be sure all frost
danger has passed. Also, choose the


healthiest plants you can find and
handle them gently. It's best to
transplant on a cloudy day, or in late
afternoon and, as soon as possible
after a rain.
It's a good idea to set your plants
slightly deeper than they were
growing at the nursery. You might
also want to add a cutworm control at
the same time. If you wait even a day
before controlling cutworms, you may
have to buy new plants. If the tomato
variety you're growing requires stak-
ing, you can drive stakes into the soil,
at the time of planting. Place the
stakes three or four inches from the
plants as they grow, simply tie them
to the stakes with strings.
To help your plants off to a good
start, make up a starter solution of
one or two tablespoons of an all-pur-
pose garden fertilizer (8-8-8) dissolve
in a gallon of water. Pour about a pint
of this liquid into the planting hole as
you set each plant. Protect the new
plants by shading them- a few days
after transplanting.
Tomatoes need about an inch of
water each week., Heavy soakings
once a week are better than many
light sprinklings. If your soil is very


Lodge Serves As Home for Cancer Victims
i,. .


sandy, you may need to water more
frequently especially the first week
after planting. Never let the soil'dry,
out completely.
Many insects bother tomatoes,
causing leaf and fruit damage. A
general purpose insecticide will con-
trol most of these pests. Your garden
center operator can recommend an
appropriate product or you can check


with your County Extension Agent.
The most serious diseases of
tomatoes are blight, leaf spots, wilts,
and viruses. Leaf spot can usually be
controlled with fungicide sprays.
However, viruses and wilt must be
controlled by using resistant plant
varieties to start with. Again, your
garden center or Extension office can
offer advice.

Some homes are unique because
of their architecture or heritage.
Florida's first Winn-Dixie Hope Lodge
is special because it will provide much
more than free lodging to cancer
patients and family members travel-


ing to the University of Florida
College of Medicine for treatment.
The Winn Dixie Hope Lodge will, in
fact, serve as a "home away from

much more beneficial. In such an
environment, persons affected by
cancer can gain tremendous support
from one another while receiving the
benefits of education and rehabilita-
tion programs.
The Winn Dixie Hope Lodge will
provide 30 guest rooms, each consist-
ing of a sitting and sleeping area in
addition to a full bath. Separate
storage sections will 'be made avail-
able in the kitchen as families will be
required to purchase and prepare
their own food. A community dining
room will allow for interaction with
others.
Volunteer physicians, nurses, so-
cial workers and other qualified
professionals will be responsible for
the lodge's operation, along with a
full-time resident manager who will
be on call 24 hours a day. ACS
volunteers will play a key role by
assisting visitors .with services such
as transportation to and from local
treatment centers. Medical treatment
will not take place in the lodge.
.... wBhe -University" of brida was -p
selected as the location for the Winn
Dixie Hope Lodge because many
cancer patients throughout Florida
and the Southeast require specialized
treatment at the University's College
of Medicine. Winn Dixie and its
employees have responded to the
Society's dream of building this
facility by generously committing $1
million to the effort. The University of
Florida has donated the land for the
lodge at a cost of $1 per year for the
next 40 years to the ACS.
The concept behind the Winn
Dixie Hope Lodge is one of sharing
and concern. For cancer patients and
their loved ones, the lodge will
certainly be a home in which they will
always feel welcome, but perhaps
more importantly, it will be one that
they can truly call their own.

Upon motion by Comm. Birming-
ham, second by Comm. Peters, and
unanimous vote, the Board approved
the minutes of February 10, 1987, after
corrections were made.

$1,829.00..
Upon motion by Comm. Birming-
ham, second by Comm. Money, and
unanimous vote, the Board agreed to
table these bids for study and
recommendation, by A.O. Boyett,
later in the meeting.

Upon motion by Comm. Birming-
ham, second by Comm. Traylor, and
unanimous vote, the Board tabled

for lack of a second. After, further
discussion, and upon motion by
Comm. Peters, second by Comm.
Traylor, and unanimous vote, the
Board agreed to accept this bid. Clerk
Lister is to notify Jones Cabinets of
the acceptance.
Upon the request of Comm.
Birmingham, representatives from
St. Joseph Telephone & Telegraph
appeared 'before the Board to discuss
problems caused by the placement of
telephone cable, for a new system,
throughout the County. Comm. Bir-
mingham stated he had asked them to
be present to discuss these problems
'because, although it is not -in 'his
district, he ig irbelihg -oiiiiliaitil
from Gulf County residents about dirt
roads and driveways being cut and not
repaired correctly, yards being dam-
aged, etc., by the contractor for St.
Joseph Telephone and Telegraph
Company. Comm. Birmingham re-
quested the Telephone Company see
that the crews (1) take care of the
driveways as well as possible, (2) do
not cut any paved roads, and (3) ask
the property owners, out of courtesy,
before they bury this cable in front of
their property. Tim Griffin apologized
for the problems and agreed to
cooperate with the requests of Comm.
Birmingham. Chairman Branch sta-
ted the blanket permit for cutting
roads, which the County had given
them, does not cover paved roads.
Comm. Birmingham then discussed
planned repair for paved driveways
that had been damaged. Griffin stated
they will repair and resurface all
paved driveways, parking lots, etc.,
that are damaged during this project.
Chairman Branch thanked the repre-
sentatives from St. Joseph Telephone
& Telegraph' Company for their
appearance and cooperation in this
a;itter.
A.O. Boyei t submitted his resign-
ation to theBoard, effective March 15,
1987, and recommended the Board
hire Gerald Shearer, of St. Joe Beach,
to do the repair and outside work for
the water systems, on a part time
basis. He stated Shearer is employed
at.the Gulf County Mosquito Control
Department, and he is trained to use
the equipment. Mosquito Control
Director Graves was asked if he saw
any problem with this recommend-
ation. He stated Shearer is working
for the water systems now, and that
he saw no conflict. Attorney Rish
stated an employee can be hired on a
contract basis. Comm. Money re-
quested Shearer work up a proposal
for a labor contract and present it at
the next meeting. Upon motion by
Comm. Peters, second by Comm.
Money, and unanimous vote, the
Board accepted Boyett's resignation,
and hired Gerald Shearer on a
temporary basis.
Attorney Rish presented the Reso-
lution for the maintenance of Daniels'
Road, to the Chairman for his
signature. The Resolution is contin-
gent upon and is a part of the contract
that was approved by the Board at the


January 27, 1987 'Board of County
Commission meeting. A copy of that
resolution is on file in the Clerk's
office.

ham, second by Comm. Traylor, and
unanimous vote, the Board agreed to

the specifications. If they do not meet
the specifications, the Board agreed
to accept the bid from Wallace Pump
& Supply.
Building Inspector Manuel re-
ported that action needs to be taken on
this proposed ordinance. It comes due

contains some bad terminology,
which needs to be corrected. Upon
discussion with Attorney Rish, he


... Board of Coun

reported that if an employee has not
been,with a ne.w employer s.a-ffioient
-amount,.,f .time, the. Division of

with the low bidder, and upon
speaking with Hiland Communica-
tions, the County could purchase
pagers that beep only for fire calls at
$156.00 less than the original bid of
$3,210.00. Upon recommendation by

the "fire call only" pagers.

Board agreed not to pay this invoice,
and to terminate this annual examin-
ation.

Amnesty Days workshop in Tallahas-
see. They were asked to pick a site for
the Amnesty Days Program to come
to Gulf County, and to receive
hazardous wastes of certain types, to
be placed in their trailers, for their
people to handle, and they will take it
away. There will be considerable
advertisement and Gulf County is one
of the last counties in the State to have
the Amnesty Days Program. It is fully

of everything. Upon recommendation
by Administrative Assistant Wells,

is going. Upon request by Administra-

Comm. Birmingham, second by
Comm. Peters, and unanimous vote,

nistrative Assistant Wells, motion by
Comm. Birmingham, second by
Comm. Peters, and unanimous vote,

bid, if it meets the specifications, as
per Chairman Branch and Adminis-
trative Assistant Wells.
Comm. Birmingham reported the
School Board has planned two pro-
jects in Wewahitchka, construction of
a track and a fish pond for the FHA
Class. He requested the Board's
permission to use County Equipment
for construction of the track, and for
some work that needs to be done in the
bottom of the fish pond the FHA Class
already has. The Board agreed.
Comm. Birmingham discussed
complaints he had been receiving

being sanded up, even though it is not
in his district, and requested it be
cleaned out. Road Superintendent

recently, last week, cleaned out the
ramp with the dragline.
Comm. Peters requested the
Road Department patch holes in the
parking lot of the Courthouse, as soon
as they get a chance.
Comm. Peters stated the follow-
ing questions, which he feels need to
be addressed, by the Board, in the
process of proceeding with drug
testing: (1) Will drug tests be limited
to job applications? (2) Will drug tests
be to identify drug users among the
employees? (3) How will confirmed
positive results be dealt with? (4) Will
confirmed positive results lead to
suspension or discharge, or will some
opportunity for drug rehabilitation be
approved.

Comm. Peters requested the
Board write the Florida Department
of Transportation, informing them of
the poor condition of State Road 71
between the Cypress Creek and White
City bridges, and request they repair
it immediately. Comm. Peters then
moved the Board allow the County


Road Department to stop traffic from
the Cypress Creek Bridge to the city
limits at the north end of White City.
The motion died for lack of a second.
Comm. Peters stated he is aware that
it is a state road, and the county does
not have the authority to block it, but
he still made the motion based on the
severity of the situation. The Clerk is
to write the Department of Transpor-
tation requesting the road be repair-
ed.
Comm. Money requested the
Road Department place a 15mph
