Gulf County's Teacher of the Year, Debra Betts, is
congratulated by Walter Wilder, Superintendent of
In announcing Debra Betts' selection as Gulf County
Teacher of the Year, Superintendent B. Walter Wilder
says, "The Teacher of the Year program is designed to.
honor a teacher who is a representative of all good
teachers. The selection of Debra Betts meets this goal."
Mrs. Betts is a graduate of Auburn University where
she earned a bachelors degree in 1980 and a Masters
degree in 1985. She has taught in Gulf County Schools for
four years. She is married to Ken; Betts, a forester for
the North Florida Lumber Company in Bristol, and the
mother of a son, Gregory Allan, two years old.
One of five nominees from Gulf County Schools,
Gulf County Teacher of the Year
Mrs. Betts was voted Teacher of the Year by a district-
wide screening committee composed of personnel from
each school. Other nominees included: Barbara Whit-
field, Port St. Joe Elementary School; Judith Williams,
Port St. Joe High School; Patsy Johnson, Highland View.
Elementary School; and Pamela Sumner, Wewahitchka
In making the presentation to Mrs. Betts
Superintendent Wilder stated that all the nominees were
excellent teachers and most worthy of the recog ,tion
bestowed upon them by their individual faculties.
Inspection of the City's oldest
sewage main collection system has
revealed some 20 locations where the
City must dig up the mains for
effective repairs, according to a list of
trouble spots released by the City
Clerk's office this week.
Work currently under way in the
City is employing the services of a
crew which is examining the original
-^ sewage system, locating trouble spots
' with a TV camera which is pulled
through the mains and repairs made
with a special device which cements
mny cracks or breaks in the main
,while the TV camera is travelling
Through the main.
Approximately 20 trouble spots
have proven to be too severe for the
travelling device to seal up leaks
which have been revealed by the TV
camera. In these approximately 20
locations, excavation of the lines
must be made and sections replaced
with new lines. The repair firm
presently working inside the City
does not have the responsibility to
make these major repairs. His duty
is to inspect the lines, pin-point the
major trouble spots and repair
the minor breaks.
Mayor Frank Pate said there is no
problem, except finances, with most
of the locations where repairs must be
made, but in one spot, the City legally
cannot disturb the property.
Mayor Pate said a major collec-
tion line runs under the Piggly Wiggly
Super Market through what was once
an alley, but was abandoned when the
business complex was built by George
Tapper over 20 years ago.
Pate said one of the trouble spots
in the sewer line lies in the parking lot
between the super market and the
Post Office, and the City has no
easement to go on the property. "The
City didn't get an easement to make
repairs when the alley was abandoned
way back when the shopping center
was built", Pate said.
Now, the City Commission has
initiated actions to try and reach
agreement with Tapper's estate in
order to obtain an easement to repair
utilities which run through the proper-
The City has a similar situation in
progress today, with Citizens Federal
wanting an alley abandoned beside
their building so it can be expanded.
The City has told Citizens Federal it
would if the utility repair easement
was provided them. Citizens Federal
is in the process of doing the paper
work on this easement now.
"Our only alternative in the
Tapper Estate case is to get them to
agree to an easement or for the City
to build a new sewer main,
by-passing the buildings around the
Post Office, all at 'tax payer
expense. We don't want to do that",
the Mayor pointed out.
In the meantime, the City is going
through the procedure of trying to.
secure a federal grant to pay for a?
portion of the major repairs the City:
must make to the collection system.:
No estimate has beep given on the:
project, but Mayor Pate said, "It'llI

SCounay Schol Bowd ExpectEfor-ement of the Rules
Adopts Regulations to
Isolate AIDS Suspects
Gulf County's school system now
has a document they can point to and
begin taking action from if a student
or an employee of the system is
diagnosed with the disease of AIDS at
some point in the future.
As Superintendent of Schools
Walter Wilder put it, when the new
rule was introduced some three weeks
ago, "We don't know what we're
getting into here. Medical science
doesn't have the answers we need,
yet, but at least we will have a base to
begin taking steps from if this malady
should be diagnosed here".
The Board had scheduled a
hearing prior to adoption of the ruling
Tuesday at their regular School Board
meeting, but there was no opposition
to the rule or arguments against its
The new ruling allows the Super-
intendent tle authority to remove a
student from the classroom or take
steps to isolate an employee diagnos-
ed as having AIDS, as an emergency
measure until the Board can be called
in session and make a permanent
decision on each matter individually.
One of the keys to the policy will
be that a committee will be named by
the 'School Board to monitor the
'situation with suspected or confirmed
AIDS victims on a day to day basis.
"We'll not just isolate them like a
leper of Biblical times and forget
them", Wilder said.
In the case of students, who have
been diagnosed positive, they will be
removed from the classroom and the
system will make arrangements to
have the student taught at home.
The Board has adopted a set of
rules and regulations governing this
national hysteria with AIDS, which.
has been adopted and endorsed by the
Florida School Board Association,
with just a few minor changes to allow
the document to be applied on a more
convenient basis here in Gulf County.
ACCEPTS PROPERTY BIDS
The School Board has advertised
some half acre of what has been
described as surplus property, adja-
cent to the old Elementary School
property in Wewahitchka. The Board
is phasing out the old elementary
school site, as most of the classes have
been moved into a new building this
The surplus property was former-
ly a playground used by the school,
and is located on Highway 71, just
north of the school buildings.
The Board received three bids
for the property, which will be studied
and a decision made to accept one of
the bids or reject them all on April 16.
Superintendent Wilder said the
bids ranged from $24,125 to $35,000 for
the property, but the law stipulates
they must sell the property for no less
than the appraised value unless they
have a valid reason to do so. The
property was appraised at $36,000 to
$44,000 prior to advertising it for sale.
In other 'business items, the

Department of. Natural Resources
said the primary reason for the public
hearing concerning the Gulf County
preserve was to notify the home folks
that the DNR is requesting funds from
the current session of the Legislature
so a full time manager for the
preserve can be placed on site to
monitor the bay.
Penton-said this move has been
made in Apalachicola Bay, with an
on-site manager being placed there
and said, "It has worked out very well
both for the protection of Apalachicola
Bay and for the people of Franklin
County as well", Penton said.
He pointed out that the placement
of an on-site full time manager
moves administration duties from
Tallahassee to the bay and solves a
tremendous public relations problem
with local residents. "It gives them a
local sounding board in the county
who understands local problems when
a thorny issue concerning the bay
comes up in the future.
Penton said, "We're trying to get
this job funded in the current session
of the Legislature and if we're
successful, he could be on the job by
around July 1".
Penton said a local manager
would provide easy access to a state
man in case of problems and the local
man 'could be instrumental in the
issuance of permits which now
sometimes take months to obtain,
simply because they all must be
handled through offices in Tallahas-
Penton said the DNR wasn't
required to hold public hearings on the
placing of a full time manager to an
acquatic preserve, as they were doing
Tuesday night. "We're doing it this
way because we think it helps us with
public relations to bring our plans to

that especially development activities
do not damage the bay or its shores.

a pristine body of water in the State of

At Stump Hole
Your lead article in the March 26
issue of The Star is certainly
interesting. The County Commission-
ers proposal to stabilize the marshy
area at the "Stump Hole" has raised
objections from the Audubon Society,
Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission
and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
Laughable, isn't it? I have fished the
"Stump Hole" for some years and as
anyone who knows the area can
testify, the swampy area the County
Commission wants to stabilize wasn't
even there until Hurricane Kate
visited us some 16 months ago. Of
course, a self-styled conservationist
group and two not too swift govern-
mental agencies file objections alledg-
ing "destruction of the habitat." I
didn't notice them filing any objec-
tions when six houses were built last
year on the "dunes and other sensitive
areas" adjacent to the proposed fill
I also didn't notice the Audubon
Society or any governmental agencies
filing objections to the recent applica-
tion for the construction of a dock into
the Bay, very close to the "Stump
Hole." The fact that the dock will be
built into a very productive clam bed

"instant conservationists". The only

will be destroyed.
A safe parking area is needed at
the "Stump Hole." Traffic is getting
heavier and faster on the peninsula
each year and an accident caused by a
car partially parked on the road is
only a matter of time' The possible
accident hazard removal should be
sufficient reason for pressing ahead
with this worthwhile project.
The inclusion of the hogwash
about putting in a walkway "to
prevent people from walking over
dunes and sensitive areas to reach the
beach" is nothing but weak kneed self
serving pap. Whenever you look at the
peninsula, you see bulldozers, back-
hoes, ditchers, pile drivers and all
kinds of tracked and wheeled machin-
ery running all over the dunes. They
are cutting them down, plowing in the
sea oats, filling wet spots, laying
foundations, driveways, streets and

Fighting and Winning
I BELIEVE FIST-FIGHTING is a thing of the past. I don't think I've
seen a real, honest-to-goodness street fight since Tommy Hudson
whupped up on that guy who was trying to "snake" my date at an
apartment complex in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, back in 1969.
Let me say at the outset that I don't believe in fighting. It's not a
healthy sport. Every fight I've ever had they have been very few, thank
goodness I've lost. Even when I won, I lost. The ones I've had and lost, I
lost in more ways than one.
THE FIRST FIGHT I can remember having was with Warren
Jernigan. Warren and I had a little disagreement over a girl at school and
I suggested we settle it after school. We were both in the sixth grade and
we met at a little creek about a half-mile from the school that afternoon.
One strange thing about fights is that lots of people like to watch them
but not many want to participate. We had a good crowd that afternoon.
Warren wanted to "punch" it out but I would have no part of that. I
preferred wrestling and choking one another' to throwing meat
sandwiches at each other's face. Warren also had a little height on me
and his arms were about six inches longer than mine. That weighed
considerably in my decision.
As it turned out we wrestled and I won. And, although I won, I lost I
lost Warren's friendship and two of my friends were mad at me because I
wouldn't "punch it out" with Warren.
ANOTHER THING I'VE noticed about fighting is that a person who
does it more than once in a year gains a reputation, fast and hard. A
friend of mine in college, Charlie McArthur, had a firm reputation,
county-wide. I was with him at a party the night his reputation fell by the
wayside. Twomen beat the living pulp out of Charlie that night. They also
gave me a few knots about my face and shoulders, just to grow on.
The most interesting fight I've ever seen was in a parking lot at a bar
in Pensacola. Two women were fighting over a man. He and I, plus a
couple of dozen others, were watching.
It was one of the most brutal and vicious fights I have ever seen. They
started off pulling hair and punching each other in the face. Before long
they were grabbing at anything, and most of what they grabbed was
clothes. It wasn't long before they had pulled each other half-clothed.
When they fought into a dark corner, flashlights came on from
I LOST THE BIGGEST fight of my short and tragic career. It was a
sticky night in Jackson, Mississippi, and I was in my freshman year of
college. It was the first time I had ever drank any hard liquor. I learned a
good lesson that night. That lesson is, hard liquor doesn't mix with
anything and come out good.
That night I picked on a lad that was about six foot five inches tall and
weighed, by conservative estimates, 260 pounds. He beat me so bad that I
had to be finger printed the next morning to find out who I was. I didn't
even recognize myself!
KIRK DOUGLAS, THE movie star, recalled an incident that
happened to him shortly after he made the movie, "Champion." It's an
old movie made in the 1950's about a boxing champion who was a fierce
He recalledd that shortly after the movie had been released and
-.',bca(ne popular, he *as in 'a'bar one night having a drink with some
friends. He noticed, in a booth not far from where they were standing,
that two men were watching him. It was obvious that they recognized him
and were about to challenge him.
When the biggest of the two, a man about twice his size, stood and
started his way, Kirk acted quickly. He said he brought both hands down
on the bar as hard as he could, at the same time saying, "HEY,
everybody! Listen to me!" When he did that, the man stopped in his
tracks and the bar became as quiet as a tomb.
With everyone's attention focused on him, he put his meanest look on
his face and stared directly at the man and delivered this disarming
challenge to his potential adversary. He stated emphatically, "Everyone
in this bar can beat me up!"
.... I HAVE ADOPTED that philosophy and I rest my case!
"Where's the money?"
I reckin' the only thing wrong
with that plan is no one is going to pay
a plug nickel to see me fight. And
that's why I kind'a admire both
Hagler and Leonard they've got to
know something and they have work-
ed hard to get themselves into a posi-
tion to earn that kind of money from
The best fight I ever attended took
place in the parking lot behind our
high school, gym. I didn't actually see
how it started I was inside getting
ready for basketball practice when
Martin Paschal stuck his head in the
back door and yelled "Fight". We
might have had a bigger crowd but I
believe that Martin yelling fight was
about all the promoting that was done
by either fighter. I didn't bother with
my Converse high tops, I raced
barefooted out to the parking lot.
Hollis Mayo and Virgil
Quesenberry were standing toe to toe
slugging it out. Now, I've already told
you I don't know a thing about boxing,
so I don't know if they were using left
hooks or straight jabs. But I do know
that Hollis and Virgil were hitting
each other hard and often. Virgil's
nose was bleeding and Hollis' face
was as red as a beet. Finally Virgil hit
Hollis right square on the mouth and
as Hollis staggered back I thought it
was all over but as Virgil moved in
Hollis kicked him hard on the shin.
Virgil kind'a bent over and Hollis hit
him just above his left ear. That lick,
backed Virgil up and before they
could come back together Coach
Givens got between them and broke it
They didn't earn 10 million a
piece, but they did get suspended
from school for five days. We didn't
worry about the suspension we
were too busy trying to determine who
won the fight. Ricky said later that he
thought Coach Givens raised Virgil's
hand after he broke it up, but I sure
didn't see it. That fight took place
twenty three years ago and we're still

cable. I've never heard ANYONE
worrying about tearing up the "dunes
and sensitive areas." But if a few
fishermen walk to the beach, they are
injuring the environment, therefore a
walk has to be built.
We need a parking area at the
"Stumps" to protect human beings
from death or injury. If a walk is put
in, fine, but the Commission should be
forthright enough to admit that the
parking area is what is needed. A
walkway to the beach is redundant.
A closing note for your consider-
ation. This "tempest in a tree trunk"
is amusing, as I have seen several old
maps circa 1830 or so that show a
"South Pass" located right where the',.
"SttiuiipHole" is now. 'There is also a'
log of the U.S. Revenue Cutter
"Taney" reporting on the escape of a
"pirate" from St. Joseph Bay throtigh
the "South Pass." All we have to do is
wait until the right hurricane comes
along and the enttie problem will be
solved. There will be a nice pass at the
former "Stump Hole" location and the
County Commission will be trying to
get a bridge built over to the new "St.
Joseph Island." No doubt the Audubon
Society and a couple of bureaucrat
bunglers will protest that too.

Local Woman Found Dead In Apalach
Automobile exhaust fumes, acci-
dentally inhaled, caused the death of a
Port St. Joe woman and an Apalachi-
cola man near Apalachicola Airport
last week end, according to Franklin
County Sheriff Jack Taylor.
Police identified the two as
Robert McClain, 29, of Apalachicola
and Suzanne McFarland Hobbes, 29,
who listed a Panama City address but
is a native of Port St. Joe.
Sheriff Taylor said the medical
examiner in Tallahassee had deter-
mined the exact cause of death to be
carbon monoxide poisoning.
"The investigation has found no
signs of foul play," Sheriff Taylor
said,"and it appears that death is the
result of accidental asphyxiation from
the automobile exhaust".
Police said investigation revealed
the car had no tail pipe and a leaky
The bodies of the two were found
Sunday morning after a passer-by had
called the sheriff's department about
9 o'clock and reported seeing a car
backed into a wooded area about
150 feet from the road, police said.
Police fixed the time of death at
sometime either late Friday night or
early Saturday morning. Police said
arguing about who won it.
Pretty soon you'll hear talk about
a Hagler Leonard rematch. For that
kind of money, if I was them, I'd fight
each other about every six months.
But that's not the fight I'm interested
in. I want to see a rematch of the
Mayo Quesenberry fight. I've got a
call in to Hollis right now. We could
get Martin Paschal to promote it for
us of course we'd have to work on
his advertising techniques. You know
ESPN would set up a ring for us out in
the parking lot behind the gym...

Dr. Bruce, in explaining how
much the Cancer Crusade drives have
helped the fight -against cancer
through research, stated, "There is
hardly anyone alive to day who has
not been touched by cancer in some
way. Of course, all of us are terminal,
but cancer can be curtailed even more
as the cause of death among our loved
Dr. Bruce assured the crusade
members the money they raised was
being put to good use. He said cancer
deaths have been reduced in the
past 50 years. "In the 1930's, survival
after cancer diagnosis was only 20
percent. Today it is well over 49
percent survival, attesting to the
effective role research is playing in
the fight against this dread disease".
"We all hope scientists will come
up -with the 'polio answer' to the
cancer problem before we get it", he
said in conclusion.

For the Proposed Project of Port St. Joe, Florida
(EPA Step 1 Planning Grant No. C12095030)
The EPA has conducted a review of the above
subject project in accordance with the procedures
(40 CFR, Part 6) for implementing the National
Environmental Policy Act. The EPA has determin-
ed that this project is eligible for a categorical ex-
clusion. Accordingly, the EPA is exempting the
project from further substantive environmental
review requirements under the National En-
vironmental Policy Act.
The project includes minor rehabilitation work
on an existing gravity sewer collection system
(See attached map). Specifically, this work in-
volves replacing 1,210 linear feet of gravity sewers
and performing 300 linear feet of point repairs.
This work reflects the cost-effective rehabilitation
as detailed in the 1986 City of Port St. Joe sewer
system evaluation survey.
The proposed project is included in the scope of
EPA grant C120695-03, scheduled for funding in
FY-87. The total estimated allowable cost is
$238,700. The reserve capacity cost ratio is 1.0,
therefore, the EPA share with 55 percent of
allowable cost is $131,300.
This project is eligible for a categorical exclu-
sion under the criteria in 40 CFR 6.505 such that:
1. The project will not create a new or relocate an
existing discharge to surface or ground
2. The project will not substantially increase the
volume of discharge nor load of pollutants.
3. The project will not provide capacity to serve
a population 30% greater than the existing
4. The project will not have a significant effect
on the quality of the human environment.
5. The action will not directly nor indirectly af-
fect cultural resources, habitats of endangered
or threatened species, or environmentally im-
portant natural resource areas. .
6. The action is cost-effective and should cause
no significant public controversy.
The documentation to support this decision
Swill be on file with the Florida Department of En-
vironmental Regulation, Bureau of Wastewater
Management and Grants, and is available for
public scrutiny upon request.
Comments regarding this decision may be ad-
dressed to Mr. Ernesto A. Perez, P.E., Chief,

Until recently, tinted soft contact

were light-colored (blue, green, ha-

Now there are soft color contact
lenses that can change brown eyes to
blue, green or aqua. And what a
difference they make in the way you
look, especially if you always wanted

But, the Sharks couldn't rally
enough to overcome the Tornadoes'
two big blasts.
The Sharks out-hit the Tornadoes,
eight to four, but like several of their
recent games, the Sharks just couldn't

If the goal of UND
the reformation by the Rev. Jer
was to create loy- bytheRev.Jei
alty through con-
fessions or sub-
mission to central authority, then it
has fallen flat.
And if we take the modern,
negative connotation of the word
Protestant (that is, one who is against
something) to be the purpose of the
reformation, Protestantism is a fail-
If Protestantism is successful it is
because of its ancient and positive
connotation. The root meaning of
"pro" is for, while "test" is derived
from the stem from which we get the
word testify. A Protestant, according
to the ancient meaning, is "one who
speaks for" the truth of the Gospel.
Success in this sense can be
shared by Christians, regardless of
their Church affiliation. If you are
speaking for the Good News of Jesus
Christ, you have grasped the essence
of the reformation from which Pro-
testantism has come.
Many modern Christians are a bit
confused about what the Good News of
Jesus Christ is. Not so with the early
The earliest Christians had not
established fixed doctrines, rigid
ecclesiastical governments, confes-
sions or central authorities. They had
to get by with the account of Jesus' life
and the teachings of the Apostles.
To them the Good News was that
God himself had entered into the life
of mankind through the life, death,
and resurrection of Jesus.
As Easter approaches the resur-
rection of Jesus will receive more
attention. But unfortunately many
people will see the event as just
another indication that there is life
after death. It is that, but it is much
Above all else, the resurrection is
,the proof that Jesus is the Christ or
Messiah of God.
For centuries the Jews looked for
the Messiah. And those who have not
yet experienced the light of Christ are
still looking for their redeemer. The
disciples who dared to hope that Jesus
was the Messiah were not disappoint-
ed. When they accepted this truth they

The importance of the resurrec-
tion cannot be overemphasized. It is
so important that St. Paul wrote, "If

SChrist be not raised, your faith is in
vain." (1 Cor. 15:17(
Does your faith experience give
you confidence in the resurrection of
Jesus Christ? If not, may I point out
that your system of fixed doctrines,
your adherance to confessional state-
ments, arid your submission to central
authority does not have the same
foundational basis that was accepted
as the norm by the earliest Christi-
'. Martin Luther and the other
reformers tried to lead Protestantism
back to the basic fundamentals of
Christianity. If the movement has
achieved this goal, then it has been
successful. But if the importance of
the resurrection has been omitted,
then as St. Paul has said, such "faith
is in vain".
The reformation goal has been
met in you if you are pro-testifying by
your words and life that Jesus was
God in person, who lived, died, and
was raised again from the dead. Is

Even A Small Garden Space Can
be Fun, Satisfying, Productive
Even Containers Can Produce A Large Variety of Vegetables
By ROY LEE CARTER
Vegetable gardening is more
pc-pular today than ever before. We
usually discuss this subject in the
context of the backyard garden.
However, that isn't always fair to the
growing number of Floridians who
live in mobile home parks, apart-
ments, and condominiums where
there's little or no backya 'd to be had.
Just because you don have a big
yard with lots of room doesn't mean
you can't grow vegetables. In fact,
you can enjoy working with a
strawberry barrel or a half dozen
tomato plants as any backyard
garden. My information for this
article was provided by Extension
Vegetable Specialist Jim Stephens.
In addition to being an enjoyable
activity, mini-gardening is both prac-
tical and ornamental. Containers fit

Depending on the type of vege-
tables you plan to grow, there's
practically no limit to the kinds of
containers you can use, pots and pans,
milk jugs, hollow cement blocks,
bushelbaskets, trash cans, barrels,
drums, and even plastic bags. Just be
sure the container you choose will
hold the soil in and let excess water
Once you've selected a container
and have decided what to grow, it's
time to think about a growing
medium. Of course, you can plant in
either ordinary garden soil, or a
prepared soil mix. A good growth
medium can be made of one bushel of
vermiculite, a bushel of peat moss,
one-and-one-quarter cups of dolomite,
and a cup of 8-8-8 fertilizer with trace
elements all mxied thoroughly. You
could also use a bushel of peat,
well-decomposed compost, or cow
manure. Either way you need to add
the dolomite and fertilizer. With
mini-gardning, you have another
growth media option. You can use soil
substitutes, things like sawdust, wood
shavings, pure sand, or gravel. If you
plant in one of the lighter substitutes,
such as sawdust or wood shavings, it
will be easier to move the container, if
necessary. In any case, fertilizing a
mini-garden planted in soil substi-
tutes, such as I've mentioned, is quite
different from the method used with
soil mixes or in backyard gardens.
Soil substitutes are porous and don't
hold moisture or nutrients very long.
Using such media, you need to water
and fertilize often. Normally, drench
the container with a nutrient solution.
once or twice a day, as many as five
times a day if it's especially hot and
The soil mixes we mentioned
earlier have plenty of organic matter
and some fertilizer, and usually retain
moisture well. So they don't need such
frequent watering and fertilization.
You can maintain a normal garden
watering schedule, or spread com-
mon, dry fertilizer on the soil surface
and water it thoroughly into the root
zone. Just don't apply too much or you
may cause fertilizer burn. Regardless
of your method, follow the fertilizer
label direction for container grown
If you want to grow vegetables,
but are cramped for space, give
mini-gardening a try. We think you'll
enjoy it, both the activity and the
