Hanlon Suggests Moving
Old Drawbridge Ashore
The Gulf County Commission placed their approval on
two suggestions brought to them by James Hanlon,
chairman of the "Save the Bridge" committee Tuesday
Hanlon is leading a movement to make a historic
monument of the old floating drawbridge at Overstreet
when it is replaced by a high rise span, currently under
construction. The floating draw bridge is the last one in
operation in the State of Florida, and served the same
purpose for many years at White City prior to being moved
Hanlon presented the Board with a petition which he
said contained 454 names of those desiring to save the
bridge and make a historic marker of it.
At a recent meeting, when Hanlon was asking for
* Commission backing on trying to secure the bridge from the
State Department of Transportation, the county had
expressed a desire to go along with Hanlon but asked he and
his organization to come up with suggestions for a place to
put a 90 foot barge and the bridge approaches.
Hanlon suggested, Tuesday, that the county make
an attempt to secure the present road right of way,
where it dead ends at the present bridge, and place the
floating barge span on the present road-way and enclose
it in a fence.
"It is our understanding you are going to build a boat
landing on the site, but it will not be on this road right of
way", Hanlon stated. He also presented two artists
drawings of how the bridge area could be handled,
making room for the barge and preserving some of the
old approaches in the process.
Hanlon's alternate suggestion was to place the old
bridge in the county park at White City, since the
floating span was formerly located in that vicinity.
Attorney William J. Rish advised the Commission they
couldn't give Hanlon a definite answer at the present time,
since he would need to examine the road property deed. "It
may have a reverter clause in the deed, giving it back to the
original owner if it is ever abandoned as a road", Rish said.
"Many road deeds in Gulf County do have such a clause in
them", he said.
The Commission agreed to approve of Hanlon's
suggestion, providing they can get the property, free and
clear, on which to place the barge.
The county has plans, presently, to construct a boat
landing and ramp on a piece of property which will remain
between the present road and the new bridge. The
remaining piece of pie-shaped property was not included in
Hanlon's suggestion as a place for the old bridge to be put
"We'll support your suggestion in any and every way
we can", Chairman Branch said.
James Hanlon, one of the leaders in trying to secure the
old Overstreet Bridge as a. historic monument for Gulf
County, showed drawings of places and ways the retiring
floating bridge could be displayed for the future. Hanlon
was asking for the support of the Gulf County Commission
in securing and displaying the bridge, Tuesday.

Parking Plans Get Bogged Down
APC Review Committee Recommends A Change of Design
Gulf County's attempt at building
a parking apron on St. Joseph's
Peninsula for fishermen 'd people
wanting to use the beach has
apparently bogged down in the marsh
which environmentalists are claiming
would be destroyed by the parking
- -Administrative-- assistant, ,Larry-
Wells, reported to the County Corn-
mission r'uesday morning that the
technical review committee of the
Apalachee Planning Council recom-
mended at a Thursday meeting of the
Council that the county go back to the
drawing board and come up with an
alternative plan for the parking
provision, which will not have such an
impact on what has been described as
a sensitive area.
Wells told the Commission, "I feel
that if we're going to have a parking
area in the vicinity we want it, we're
going to have to come up with a plan
which eliminates the drive to the
water's edge and reduces the amount
of fill we do in the edge of the marsh".
The county was given the proper-
ty, before it became a marsh in the
1985 hurricane, by William J. Rish'to
serve as a public access to the beach.
After the storm, shifted sands and
dunes had made a rain-water pond on
the site, which grew up in vegetation
and has been classified as a marsh by
Commissioner Eldridge Money,
who is primarily in charge of
developing the parking space recom-
mended to the Commission Tuesday
that they omit the access road to the
beach from their plans and reduce the
parking fill area to only 35 feet.
Originally, plans called for a 75 filled
in area parallel to the the road and an
access road to the water's edge along
the edge of the present marshy area.
Two state agencies and the
Panama City Audubon Society have
opposed the plan because of its
encroachment on the small marsh.
The state agencies want to take a
look at the plan's effect on animal
and aquatic life in the vicinity and
the Audubon Society opposes the
Imnasure because of its possible
oi t r nesting- and mirgratory
A local objection was ex' essed
to the plan Tuesday, when Mildred
Legrone objected to the original
plans because of its possible effect
Chairman Billy Branch instructed
Money to meet with Wells and Britt
Pickett, who has done considerable
work on the parking area, to come up
with a plan which would be acceptable
The parking facility idea came
up when Pickett suggested something
of this nature be done on the road in
the area of the Stump Hole because it
is a favorite fishing spot of surf fishers
and attracts a4ot of traffic, especially-
in the summer time.
."In addition to the traffic, the
summer attracts loads of visitors to
the Peninsula and the State Park at
the end, making the Stump Hole area
a really dangerous place", Pickett
said. He pointed out the spot is right
on a big curve and cars parking to
fish, must usually keep one wheel on
the road to keep from getting stuck in
the soft white beach sand. "It really
makes for a dangerous situation for
drivers and those going to and from
the parked cars", Pickett said,
The County hopes to get some-
thing approved and in place before the
heavy summer traffic begins.
John-Sullivan, a resident of Stone
Mill Creek, told the Board Tuesday a
bridge in the subdivision is in a
dangerous condition. "There is a
three ton load limit sign placed at the
bridge", Sullivan said. He pointed to
problems he experienced moving a

Just Tell Us the
Governor Martinez, it ap-
pears as if you have told us a
There were many of us-
this writer included-who vot-
ed for you solely on the
expressed opinion that taxes
were high enough in Florida.
It hasn't been so long ago that
we have become confused or
forgot your promise to even
reduce big state government
to manageable size and allow
attrition to take care of some
of the over-staffed state bu-
reaus. Not being in state
government, we didn't know
whether the bureaus were
over-staffed or not, but that's
beside the point. You said they
were and you said you would

Now, even before the first
Legislature gets into session
for you to flail away at, in
their tax-raising zeal, you beat
them to the punch and propose
the largest single tax increase
in a year which has been
recorded in state history in
You remember, the other
fellow running for Governor,
promised he would raise state
taxes and you tsked-tsked and
said, "Piffle! It isn't neces-
sary to raise taxes!"
After you fired all of
Governor Graham's appoint-
ees, made as he was leaving
office; raise taxes was the
first thing you proposed. How
can you claim to have kept
faith with those who voted for
you when you do the exact
opposite of what you said you
would do? Does that mean we
can expect you to do the exact
opposite of what you said you
would do in other campaign
promises as well?
Most of us who live in
Florida are now smart enough
to realize when the sales tax
exemption is removed on
service items, the customer-
not the one offering the
service-will pay the bill. We
all are cognizant of the fact
that if gasoline taxes are
raised, the person who buys a
gallon or two for the, family
bus is the onewho will pay it.
We have up-graded our
schools in this state to the
point where they are teaching
their pupils to figure these
things out for themselves.
Nobody is fooled into
believing someone else is
paying a new tax bill, what-
ever it may be.
Just be truthful with us,

As the Progress of Man
by Kesley Colbert-_
I had to make a trip over to
Panama City a few days ago and I
saw one of the most unusual sights of
the 1980's. In fact it was so strange, it
frightened me a little. Like, you know,
something was out of place. If I'd had
my camera, I'd a got a picture 'cause
I know this situation won't last long. I
saw. a corner lot that didn't have a
Junior Food Store on it.
I reckin' maybe the correct term
is convenience store. You can call
them Pic-Pac, Suwanee Swifty, 7- 11,
Majic Market, Sing, Handy Dandy,
You, or whatever, but I tend to think
of all of them as Junior Food Stores.
It's funny how we sometimes lump
everything under one name. I can
remember looking for money out in
the gravel parking lot of the City Cafe.
We'd run across a nickel and Buddy
would say "Let's head over to
Woodrow's and get us a coke".
Just A Little Convenience
It's a pity that lives will be
threatened, sand dunes will
continue to be damaged and
people will continue to be
inconvenienced over parking
at the Stump Hole this spring
and summer, simply because
a few who have the power to
deny creation- ,of;, parking
space in the area voted- to
table the matter of a permit,
simply because they didn't
know what they were talking
about. Rather than vote the
way people in the area want-
ed, after hearing an expres-
sion of a desire to protect the
surroundings to the proposed
parking area, they just voted
Iri other words, they didn't
take the word of our local
people about the matter. If
those who have been charged
with giving permission for
such things can't take the time
to find out the physical facts
and not be governed by
emotional feelings about such
matters, they should step
aside and leave the decisions
to those who care enough
about being fair to get the
facts in a matter.
Nobody would go to the
trouble Gulf County has gone
to in order to get a small,
.siimple parking spot permiftt
ed, unless it was needed.
Certainly nobody in Gulf
County has time to dream up
such projects just to get a
chance at getting a lick or two
in against the environment-

money on this matter, we

activities in this area? How

THURSDAY, APRIL 16,1987
You see, he didn't mean a Coca-
Cola, he just meant a soft drink of
some kind. As a matter of fact we
usually got a root beer unless it was
real hot, then we'd get us a peach or a
Nugrape. I've walked into a'many a
store and asked "What kind of cokes
have you got?"
You couldn't do that today. In-

now, these junior food places are con-

one of those stores. I think it was my

Woodrow Kennon's Mercantile, Dry
Goods and Grocery Store. It's the only
place I shopped for the first seventeen
years of my life. It was the most con-
venient store in town. And it was com-
fortable. The first thing I've noticed
about these junior stores is they don't
have a big front porch that's about
four steps off the ground. You need
that porch for gathering up on on
Saturday mornings, for hunkering,
for spitting off of and the store owner
has got to have someplace to stack his
F-R-M chicken scratch.
I walk inside a store today and I
miss the boiled egg, cheese and pickle
smell. And I can't ever find that big
barrel that's got all the crackers in it.
I also can't seem to find a store where
my Dad's got a charge account. Of
course you understand I haven't had
time to check'em all out yet. I'm still
looking the first thing I always ask
when I get to the counter with my stuff
is, "Can I charge this to my Dad?"
But I guess the thing I miss the
most is the checker game. During the
Christmas break, when the weather
was bad I'd sit for hours around that
pot bellied stove that stood near the
center of Mr. Woodrow's store and
watch the old men play checkers and
swap out. I never was old enough to
play at the real board. Some of the
boys would gather up some coke caps
and we'd play on the floor in the

Sugar Ray could do with a fighter like
Louis never did fight for a million
dollar purse that I can remember. He
died broke, in debt and almost
destitute. He was earning his keep by
merely showing up on the wrestling
circuit there near the end. He did
some wrestling in his older days and
he did some officiating of wrestling
Still Joe Louis could draw a crowd
at a wrestling match or anywhere else
he appeared, just because when he
was fighting there were those who
said he had dynamite in his fists. He
didn't mess around when he went into
the ring. He never had to go for 15
rounds until the day he lost the title
when he became too old to keep up
with the younger dancers.
Even Muhammad Ali couldn't
hold a candle to Joe Louis.
It's a pity Joe Louis didn't have
some of the "brass" Ali had. If he had,
perhaps he could have held on to some
of that big money he earned during his
illustrious ring career rather than
have this one or that one con him out
of every penny he made.
Ali was smart enough to hang on
to his money and promote it into
more, but like Joe Louis, he wasn't
smart enough to know when to hang
up his boxing gloves.

a ringside seat cost at Ceasar's

it cost around $25.00 to get a good seat
in an auditorium where the televised
fight was being shown.
I guess the reason we all didn't get
our chance to go a round or two with
Marvelous Marvin or Sugar Ray is
that nobody this side of Australia
would pay even $5.00 a seat to see us
get our head bashed in by Sugar Ray
or Marvin. And that's a pity. I
remember even back to those 10-year-
old days. Getting one's head bashed in
is no laughing matter-which would
probably be the reaction of anyone
who saw us crawl into that Ceasar's
Palace ring with Marvelous Marvin or

Handsome Man Ugly Man
THERE ARE SOME handsomG men in this world. There are also
many not-so-handsome men. Some of us are referred to as "ugly".
It's surprising how looks affect a man's personality. Money, or the
lack of it, does the same thing, in many cases.
I am not a person who was blessed with physical good looks, but I am
not "dirt-ugly" either. It also seems that I was "out to lunch" when the
financial blessings were passed out.
BEING NEITHER handsome nor (extremely) ugly, rich nor dead
broke (at the moment), I feel qualified to offer a few observations
concerning all of the above.
Below are some of the observations I have noted throughout the many
years I have associated with men who were handsome, ugly, rich, poor
and all the ones in between.
-All the handsome men I've ever known, except for a handful, knew
they were handsome. I call them "mirror-watchers." Most of them were
not nearly as handsome as they thought, but to them, mirrors don't lie.
-Many ugly men think they are handsome. Reasons for this vary.
Many ugly men have money and some have mothers who have lied to
them, or both.
-The handsome man does not always get the best looking girl. Often
times it's the ugly man with lots of money.
-Handsome men lose more fights than do their ugly counterparts.
The main reason for this is they often try to "snake" ugly men's good
looking girls. I call this the "foolish move" syndrome.
-There are more ugly men than there are handsome men. This
keeps everything on an even keel and keeps all the big, red apples out of
-Some ugly men get the girls who are beautiful and-or rich and
beautiful and no one can understand why because they have no money. I
call this the "cut across Shorty" syndrome.
-Handsome men are usually not as good at conversing as are their
ugly counterparts. Less-than-handsome men realize that they must
compensate. I call this the "hungry dog hunts best" syndrome.'
-Handsome men with lots of money bear watching.
-Big, ugly men with no money and beautiful girls are dangerous.
Brown-eyed handsome men, beware!
-Handsome and ugly men look the same to me when they are in the
shower. They are all ugly. '
-I have a son who is very handsome. He can draw a crowd of good
looking girls washing the car or cutting the grass. He doesn't entertain
-Some men are neither handsome nor ugly; they are pretty. Some of
these men like to compete in "Womanless Beauty Pageants" and do
dance routines. These men usually shower by themselves.
-Sometimes ugly men pretend to have lots of money and marry the
beautiful girls. I call this the "early divorce" syndrome.
-Handsome is in the eye of the beholder -.ugly is through and
GIVEN A CHOICE, I would be as less-than-handsome as I am, with
lots of money and be a top-notch converstaionalist.

dramatization, entitled "Alleluia,
Praise the Lamb," Friday and
Saturday evenings, beginning at 7:00
p.m. CDT at the church located on

The musical will portray the
death, burial, and resurrection of
Jesus Christ. The adult choir has been
working very hard in preparation for
this special occasion, and along with
Bro. Gary Carter, pastor, extends a
cordial invitation to everyone in the
area to attend.
One of the singers featured will be

entitled "First Farewell."
For Ambulance Service
Week is Maundy Thursday. The word
"Maundy" comes from the same root
that our English word mandate comes
from. It means commandment. Maun-
dy Thursday, or Commandment
Thursday, gets its name from the fact
that it was on this night that Jesus
commanded his church to, "Love one
another, then all will know you are my
disciples." This was also the night the
Jesus taught his disciples to worship
him in the Lord's Supper.
Next is Good Friday, the day
Jesus was crucified. It is Good Friday
because God overcame the evil of
mankind. Mankind caused death, but
God has the final victory, the
resurrection. God is able to bring
healing from evil and life from death.
Holy Saturday is a quiet day of
waiting, while we recall that Jesus lay
in a borrowed tomb.
As we remember the intense
events of this Holy Week, it is easy for
us to affirm our faith in Jesus as Lord
and King. It was easy for the crowds
on Palm Sunday to acknowledge him
as their Messiah.
The only thing that might be
easier than receiving Jesus and
accepting his work of salvation on the
cross would be to do as the crowds did

on Good Friday. Those who had cried
"Hosanna" or "Save us now" on Palm
Sunday later cried out, "Crucify him,
crucify him." Judging from the shape
the world is in, it must be easier to
turn our backs to the King of Creation
than it is to stand up for him and be
counted. Only a few women and John
identified with our Lord by standing at
the foot of the cross on Good Friday.
They didn't take the easy way.
Easter is the Church's day for
new starts. Christians are Easter
people. We have a new start because
Jesus was raised from the dead and he
has shown us the way to new life.

Lanford said, "After a kid gets to
about age 14, there is not much for
him to do constructively here in Port

to remedy this situation", he said.
Lanford emphasized it didn't need to
be much, as presently there is
nothing, unless the youth happens to
be involved in some of the sporting
activities at the high school.
He especially mentioned the fact
that there is absolutely nothing for
girls to keep themselves occupied
with in the summer.

WHEN BIFOCALS MAKE SENSE
Is it becoming difficult to "re-
Ifocus" your eyes quickly when you
Want to see clearly at different
'distances? You are not alone.
:Although most people over 40 have no
lpfoblem focusing on distant objects-
-with or without corrective lenses-
:adjusting eyes to see close objects
:becomes more difficult with age. Mus-
cles progressively lose their power to
change the shape of the lens as focus
.:is shifted. Eventually the strain of
refocusing from distance to close ob-
ijects produces headaches, difficulty
:in reading, and blurred vision at dis-
:tances of less than 20 inches.
It is at this time that a thorough
:eye examination will indicate that
:corrective lenses are necessary to
:reduce eye strain and permit you to
:see comfortably and clearly at both
Distance and close range. For many, a
bifocal provides the best way to
Refocus your eyes from distant to near
:objects and vice versa with a
:minimum of effort and a maximum of

Extension Agent Says St. Augustine Grass One of Best Strains for Flo]
By ROY LEE CARTER
If there is any such thing as
supergrass, St. Augustine should
qualify. If you are about to plant a
lawn around a new home, or if you're
thinking of changing the type of grass
in your established landscape, you
would be wise to give St. Augustine a
close look. Because of its versatility
and adaptability, St. Augustine is the
most widely used lawn grass in our
St. Augustine is Florida's favorite
lawn grass for many reasons. It grows
well throughout the state on many soil
types, ranging from pure sand to
muck and marl. It's especially well
adapted to coastal areas, because of
its excellent salt tolerance. It will
grow in moderate shade to full sun,
produces a dense sod that withstands
wear well, when properly maintained,
has an attractive, deep green color. In
short, St. Augustine produces a lawn
of excellent appearance under a
variety of conditions.
The most popular St. Augustine
varieties are Bitter Blue, Floratam,
Floratine and Pursley Seville. Bitter
blue has the dark green color most
people want. Floratam is a vigorous
ROY LEE CARTER
lawn grass with good color. But, it is
not as fine-textured or low growing as
Floratine. Floratam's major advant-
age is that it seems to be highly
tolerant of chinch bugs. The most
serious pest of St. Augustine grass.
Floratine is fine-textured than hitter
blue, and it tolerates close mowing
more than most other St. Augustine
It's best to start a new St.
Augustine lawn in spring or summer.
To prepare the lawn site, clean up all
construction residue such as concrete
chips, mortar and plaster. If you leave
such debris in the soil, it can rai-e the
soil pH, making certain essential
nutrients unavailable to the grass.
Before planting the new St.
Augustine lawn, you should work
fertilizer and organic matter, such as
peat moss, into the soil to a depth of
four to six inches. Use a 16-4-8, 15-0-15,
or 8-8-8 analysis fertilizer, including
minor elements, to determine the
amount. needed, divide the first
analysis number into 100. The answer
indicates the number of pounds per
thousand square feet to apply. For
example, take a 10-10-10 obviously, 10
into 100 equals 10. That means you
should apply 10 pounds of that
analysis fertilizer per thousand
square feet, established St. Augusting
lawns should be fertilized twice a year
in spring and mid summer.
St. Augustine grass is propagated
vegetatively. Seeds are not available.
Cong. Grant's Representative Sets Visit
Congressman Bill Grant said
recently that his Congressional Assist-
ant, Robert Earl Standland, would be
visiting various locations in the
Second Congressional District. The
primary purpose of the visit will be to
assist individuals, organizations, busi-
nesses and government agencies in
dealing with problems with the
"We have the largest district in
the Eastern United States in land area
and with all or part of 25 of Florida's
67 counties, it is sometimes difficult
for our people to see that their
problems are presented to the proper
persons or agencies. That is why I will
have representatives of my office
visiting in every county on a regular
basis as well as making as many visits
as my Congressional schedule will
permit." Grant said.
"I hope to be a very personal type
Congressman. I grew up on a farm
and have lived in agriculturally based
communities all of my life. When I
was privileged to serve in the State
Senate, I had another opportunity to

So, you have to use sod, plugs, or
springs to plant your lawn. Sodding is
the quickest method, you just have
your whole yard covered with blocks
of turf. But this is the most expensive
way to establish a lawn. Plugs are
smaller pieces cut from sod blocks.
You plant them about a foot apart.
Sprigs are just the separated indivi-
dual runners. These are planted
end-to-end in rows six to 12 inches
apart. With proper care, a plugged or
