Crowd Reacts to Beach Threats



Interpret Board Chairman's Remarks As End to Driving On the Beach


Gulf County sportsmen, who use
the south Gulf County beach as their
fishing grounds are reacting about
like the 100 pound "weakling" in the
old Charles Atlas advertisements.
They feel they are getting sand kicked


in their faces by those who would
threaten closing the beaches to their
motorized access, and they are
perturbed about it to the point where
they want to do something to change
the situation in their favor.


A full Commission meeting room
had a united opinion being expressed
that they weren't the ones responsible
for the complaints of speeding,
driving dangerously, making noise
late at night and tearing up the sand


dunes in the Peninsula-Indian Pass
areas.
Jimmy James of Port St. Joe,
said: "Three and four-wheelers are
doing the tearing tip. It shouldn't be a
problem to control them. Only about

Mayor Frank Pate said the City Commission
has been receiving input from local citizens since
the School Board request was made public last
week "and most of the people who have talked to
us want the City to hang on to the building".

for the City to keep the building. "About the only

large enough, as it was, to house the entire suite

Wilder noted the temporary use of the
building wouldn't solve the Board's' long term
problem, but would give some short term relief.

a\ailabtie, pointing out exactly what has
happened in the several transactions.
SMayor Pate and the City Commissioners
agreed and said. they would begin searching
records and correcting records immediately to
bring them up-to-date.
"'While we still have people around who know
what happened and what was intended, we need
to get it down in proper records so there will be no
question in the future," Wilder said.
The transactions which do not have clear
records as to what happened include the swap of
Centennial Field baseball complex for Washing-
tion Center; building of a sewage main and lift
station to the present high school when it was
built (and subsequent tying in of portions of Ward
Ridge and Oak Grove), and just who was
responsible for what portion of the installation
costs; and proper deeds which show exclusion of
the property occupied by a City water tank
adjacent to the baseball field.
4 Both governmental bodies agreed as to what
should be the proper description in every case,
but they are just not written down properly, with
records to back up each transaction.
1 Both boards agreed to pursue the several
matters until they are properly recorded.


two to three percent of those who
drive on the beaches are the prob-
lem.
The spark which set off the verbal
fireworks 'Tuesday night was a
comment made by Chairman Billy
Branch at the last Commission
meeting when he observed the county
had a problem in this area. "I said, 'It
looks like the only way we can solve
that problem is to close the beaches to
driving' and I stand by that state-
ment". Branch went on to explain he


"We're the last
place in the panhandle

wouldn't necessarily support such a
step but observed that it would solve
the problem at the beaches.
Development of the beaches in
recent years has brought an influx of
residents to the area who have built
homes on the water's edge and are the
most vocal about people riding their
vehicles up and down the beaches in
front of their property. The sportsmen
are just as determined to drive to
their favorite fishing spot, just as they
have for years.
Sheriff Al Harrison said, "We get-
all our complaints from just a few
people. It's not what they're doing,
it's just that they're driving on the


Wewahitchka will elect a Mayor
and two City Commissioners on
September 1 this year.
Only the Mayor will be elected for
a full three-year term, with the two
Commission elections for one-year
periods to fill out two unexpired
terms.
Qualifying for the three seats on
city government doesn't begin until
July 23 and continues through August
12.
All three of the seats becoming
vacant this year are being filled by
appointees, rather than incumbents
elected to the positions.
In the Mayor's position-the only
seat up for a full term-Commissioner
Ray Dickens was named to fill the


beach and some property owners out
there think they own everything in
front of their houses all the way to
Mexico. Local people are not tearing
it up. It's mostly visitors from out of
state.
Billy Griffin said, "How about us
taking tag numbers of those cutting up
and turning them over to the Sheriff's
Department... or advising people to
stop their dangerous or destructive
activities when we see it?"
Linda Boyette asked why some
people who live in the area couldn't be
deputized to help with traffic control.
Sheriff Harrison said present state
requirements would not allow any
deputizing of people without first
taking a state-required course in law
enforcement.
Port St. Joe Commissioner James
B. Roberts suggested making the
permit fee higher in price and even
"increase the price of permits for out
of county people more".
Roberts continued by saying:
"We're the last place in the panhandle
which allows driving on a beach.
That's why everyone comes here,
causing us problems. Most of our
problems are caused by out of county
visitors".
Louise Hamm suggested the
people who live at the beach knew it
was a public access beach before they
moved there. "They knew the people
of Gulf County used it for recreation",
she said.
Attorney Tom Gibson said the
residents at the beach own their
property to the mean high water line.
"If people are destroying their
property, they can get something
done. If not, all they can do is petition
the County Commission for eIf, just
as you people are."

Leasing


30 Mile Buffer Exists Off

Shore of Cape San Blas


A controversial plan for off-shore
oil exploration that includes sensitive
apeas near the Florida Keys is
expected to take effect this week
without any changes.
U.S. Interior Secretary Donald
Hodel had been urged by Gov. Bob
Martinez and the Florida Legislature
to revise a five-year plan for offshore
oil leasing.
Hodel unveiled the leasing pro-
gram in April, which left Congress
with 60 days to make any changes.
The 60-day period ends Friday of
this week, and neither Congress nor
Hodel was expected to change the
plan to delete certain environmentally
sensitive areas from leasing, The
Tampa Tribune reported Sunday.
CAPE SAN BLAS COAST
Excluded from the sale will be a
30-mile-wide buffer from Cape San
Bias in Gulf County, to south of
Naples, the sea grass beds off
Taylor and Dixie counties and about
207 square miles called the Florida
Middle Grounds, an area vital to
commercial and recreational fish-
ing.
Fishing interests of both Gulf
and Franklin have actively opposed
the oil leasing program as outlined
by the Department of Interior.


A U.S. Interior Department
spokesman said that doesn't mean
there won't be changes later.
"It does not mean we're going to
try to sell everything under considera-
tion," Bob Walker said. "It's simply
the beginning of a discussion."
Walker also said Congress could
make changes in the plan any time it
wants to.
Environmentalists say they ex-
pect to continue lobbying Congress to
exempt areas they say are most
vulnerable to damage from drilling.
The program would set up a
schedule of 38 lease sales that would
allow oil companies to drill in
underwater areas surrounding the
continental United States.
Three Gulf of Mexico lease sales
are scheduled for next March, August
and November. The November 1988
sale includes 71.8 million acres off
Florida's west coast.
A 1992 lease sale would include
waters off the Keys and Everglades,
except for Key Largo and Looe Key
national marine sanctuaries, and has
been hotly contested by environmen-
talists and Florida's congressional
delegation.


Fires Erupt at Waste Collection Stations


Two fires during the week end
inflicted damages to solid waste
mobile collectors in two sections of the
county, according to Sam Graves, Jr.,
director of the Mosquito Control
Department.
Graves said, "We were lucky this
time. The heavy rains we have been
having kept damages to a minimum
and even practically put one of the
fires out before the fire department
arrived on the scene. Wet conditions
kept us from having heavy damage at
both sites".
The first of the. fires was set off
late Wednesday night of last week,
when one of the trailers at the Niles
Road collection station had its con-
tents catch on fire.
"All the evidence indicates this
fire was an accident", Graves said.
He pointed out that frequently people
will put debris in the dumpsters which
have hot coals in them from burning
some of their refuse, and they blaze
up. "I'm convinced this one was truly
an accident", Graves said.
The fire was confined to one
dumpster and the Port St. Joe
Volunteer Fire Department had the
blaze out in just a short time.
The other fire was back at the
favorite target of someone who keeps
setting fires in the dumpsters, accord-
ing to Graves. The second fire, late
Sunday night, was at the St. Joe Beach
collection station.
"They shot out the security light


I
we have installed there and set fires in
three different places in the trailers


stationed there", Graves said.
Again, the rains prevented heavy


damage. Graves said, "Not even the
tires were damaged this time".


Volunteer firemen Stacy Price and Frank Williams Sunday night. Two fires were reported in two collection
put water on a burning solid waste collection trailer sites during the past week.

Our Streets Need



Some Attention


We dislike paying taxes
just as much as anyone on
earth. Since the return of
services received for our
taxes is so intangible and
since so many of our public
servants on a state and
national level seem to let so
much of our hard earned
money slip through the cracks
simply because of the enor-
mous amounts of money they
must administer, it makes us
more than a little gun-shy
when one mentions the words,
"tax increase" even though
our rational reasoning says
the increased tax and the
particular service it is inten-
ded for is necessary.
The state's recent huge
tax increase in the face of so
much evident waste was one
example. The call for a local
gasoline tax to repair our
roads is another instance.
Who is to argue that our
streets are beginning to get
into pitiful condition?
Who can say we don't need
some more roads paved? Who
is to say we won't need more
roads in the future? Where
will the money come from to
provide them?

Our brothers in the Fourth
Estate to the west, the Pana-
ma City News Herald have
done it again.
Last week they meddled
in our business here in Gulf
County and tried to stir up
something which wasn't any
of their business.
They would be quick to tell
us to butt out if we were to join
in their domain of editorially
throwing our weight around in
the matters of Sheriff Lavelle
itts, -School Superintendent
Leonard Hall, their waste
incinerator, their bickering
among the county commis-
sioners, and trying to point an
accusing finger at Commis-
sioner Phillips and his prob-
lems.
Last week, the News
Herald devoted their editorial
message to telling Gulf County
how it should handle the
matter of a Bay County man
who wants to pipe his sewage
over to Gulf County where he
would introduce it to a. small
package treatment plant he
wants to build over here.
The News Herald said the
people had no business calling
Guf County government into
the fracus in an attempt to


Just a few years back, the
state of Florida took care of all
of our road needs. There was
always a state rule which
would make almost any road a
"secondary" road and eligible
for state paving or repairs.
Really,.there was no need
for the municipalities or coun-
ty to concern itself about any
roads but dirt roads. The state
took care of this problem.
Now, the State of Florida
claims jurisdiction over High-
way 98 from the Bay County to
the Franklin county line and
Highway 71 south of the
Calhoun county line.
Every other road in the
county must be taken care of
with local effort.
Locally, we don't have the
money to do that. So, as little
as we like it, we must get the
money from somewhere to
keep our roads useable. It
looks like the gas tax hike is
the only answer, unless we can
once again talk the state into
resuming this responsibility.
We think you would have
about as much chance at doing
that as having a Florida
governor promote a tax cut.


lur Business

keep the sewage out of our
county. The News Herald
abhors any government con-
trols and jumped on this
proposed control like a duck
on a June bug.
We thought government
was for doing for its constitu-
ents what they were unable to
do for themselves. Since they
were not having much success
killing this attempt to invade
their neighborhood, the people
who lived adjacent to the
proposed disposal plant came
to their government to keep it
out of their neighborhood.
Government responded,
like all good government
should, by attempting to do
what their constituents asked.
That's a plus for our local
government, in our eyes; not
an action to be condemned.
Be that as it may. We
can't see what business it is of
the News Herald's if we here
in Gulf County want no part of
the treatment plant or if we
were to go bargaining to
collect all the sewage in
Florida's Panhandle. Our
people live here and they
should have the choice as to
what that quality of life should
be.

Hunker Down with Kes



I Took Jesse 'Cause

He's Never Been to the Zoo

by Kesley Colbert.__.


I don't know how it exactly all
came about. Best I can tell my
Mother, Aunt Beatrice and Aunt Ruby
Nell were just sitting around
"talking" this past Saturday morning
when someone hit upon the idea of a
Kennedy family reunion. They might
have been inspired by Wesley's arti-
cle a couple of weeks ago detailing a
Ramsey family get together. Then
again, they might not'a seen it in The
Star they could have pulled this
idea right of the clear blue. Come to
think of it my Aunt Ruby Nell gets a
lot of things "right out of the clear
blue." Heck, let's be honest, 90 per-
cent of everything she says comes
from "somewhere beyond." Ruby
Nell's fourteenth husband probably
put it best. I forget his name but he
said Ruby's light was on most of the
time there just wasn't anybody
home.
After a short caucus on the afore-
mentioned Saturday morning, they
decided to hold this family reunion at
Mt. Zion at 2:00 P.M. the next after-
noon. The 1985 census placed the


population of Mt. Zion at seven.
Nobody would get in our way. And
they had that long picnic table down
behind the Methodist Church. The
church was built I believe in the 1920's
and it was the other building in

1i'T ^t


"town". It's located on Sugar Creek
amd the kids could swim and play on
the swinging bridge spanning the
creek. It is a perfect place for a reu-
nion of any kind. Aunt Beatrice pro-
bably picked the location.


Wants to Continue

Driving On the Beach


It seems some of our elected
officials have forgotten how they were
put into office and by whom. Such is
the case with one of Gulf County's
Commissioners.
One in particular (Chairman
Branch) wants to deprive the people
of Gulf County the pleasure of driving
on the beaches designated for vehi-
cles.
The people of Gulf County have
enjoyed these beaches for many
years, .such as fishing, throwing cast
nets, floundering or just driving on the


beach and enjoying the scenery. It is
very difficult to get to your favorite
spot when there are houses, fences,


THURSDAY, JUNE 25, 1987


I'm sure Ruby Nell selected the
time. She only lives about four miles
from Mt. Zion so she could make it
with no trouble by 2:00 the next after-
noon. They probably called my Uncle
F.D. first as he lives in Portland,
Oregon. They didn't get around to me
until late Saturday afternoon. I'm
sure they figured they could put me
way down on the calling list as I lived
only 500 miles away. F.D. was
awaiting for me when I got there. The
Kennedy's have three strong family
traits. They eat a"lot, they talk a lot
and they are ready to travel on a
minute's notice my Uncle F.D. is a
dyed in the wool Kennedy.
I think that travelling part came
from Grandmother Kennedy. Now,

It Has Been One of Those Weeks Around The Sta


IT HAS BEEN one of those weeks
around the Ramsey household and
The Star. It has been a week of no free
time and not enough time to get things
'done.
We have had a sick grandson in
the hospital, 37 miles away, two of our
associates thinking Dixie League
baseball tournaments and a printer's
devil who has had his mind on the
pretty girls at the beach, rather than
on the constructive matters he can
fifd to have his mind on here around
our back shop.
Every time I have turned around,
there has been a crisis of different
magnitudes relating to one or at times
more than one of these problems I
have enumerated here.
When you start trying to meet a
deadline with half your force thinking
about other things and who have an
interest which is wandering at the
moment, it makes for a week which
could get to be a regular back
breaker, if you let it.
FIRST, OUR LATEST grandson
had to be placed in the hospital for 10
days to receive treatment from a


pediatrician and medication for a
serious illness.
Little A.J., just turned one year
old last month, was diagnosed two
weeks ago as having bacterial menin-





ETArOIN S




gitis.
There was this happy, ebullient
little fellow, who never cried and who
could come up with expressions which
would make even strangers remark,
"Isn't that a smart baby", was laid
low by this insidious bug which
invaded his little body and put him in
a Papama City hospital in the care of
a specialist.
That meant his mother, who is
also one of our typesetters and


bookkeepers here at The Star, had to
go be with him 24-hours a day while he
was in that hospital.
If you think that won't throw a
kink in things, you ought to try it.

can relax somewhat and consider
such things. One of the things I have
considered is that I do not like-even a
little bit-having to make a trip to
Panama City most every evening in a


imsey


Not only does it put a road-block
in the way of regular daily activities,
from worrying about such a helpless
little fellow having to battle a serious
and dangerous disease, but it also
makes for a hectic schedule, trying to
work around the loss of two vitally
necessary functions here at The Star
and making regular trips to Panama
City to check on things at the hospital.
After this past week, and since
A.J. is well on the way to recovery, we


week. That isn't my favorite activity.
I'm all for Gulf Pines continuing
to improve and offer more health
services locally to minimize the need
for use of those Panama City
hospitals.
THE BASEBALL SEASON is in
its last days; especially for the Dixie
Youth League, here in Port St. Joe
and at The Star.
If you have a son who is managing


tr Printing
the championship team, a grandson
who plays on it and a momma who
follow its every move and all but the
grandson are vitally involved in
production of printed items here at
The Star, you can imagine our week of
baseball-interrupted production.
There was son Willie, watching
the clock between trips to the
darkroom and seeing the proper
things were put on the presses to keep
up the production schedule which had
been set out for the day and the week.
These activities were interrupted
regularly each day by League offi-
cials, boys playing, parents of boys
playing and the continued threat of
rain.
All of these conspired to keep
Willie's mind not totally void of
everything except what he was doing
here at The Star.
Willie has never been one who
could get along without his sleep.
Even as a little boy, not even Dixie
Youth age, yet, Willie had to stop what
he was doing and take a nap wherever
he was and whatever he was doing,
when the mood hit him.
He has gone to sleep curled up on


Plant
straight chairs, on piles of paper in the
warehouse, under tables on the floor,
in a heap of scrap paper.. you name
it and he has slept on it.
Now, when he loses his sleep he
gets grouchy. Playing baseball nearly
every night till midnight and having to
work the next day has not dealt real
kind with Willie. He has had his testy
moments this past week.
THEN THERE IS Shirley, one of
our computer type setter operators,
who sets the ad guts, the commercial
printing, etc.,
Of course, she followed along.
It has always seemed like a
strange metamorphasis to me to see a
little lady who didn't know a third
strike from a foul ball hunched
forward on a set of bleachers,
shouting, "Good catch!", "It was low
and inside!", "Choke up, son!",
"throw him the high hard onel",
"'slide, son, slide".
I remember when she used to
threaten the oldest son, who is also a
ball player, with mayhem if he should
slide into base and "get those pants
dirty!"

Life's Little Irritations

Problems are a part of life. Anyone who has lived past age ten and
was not born rich and beautiful should know this.
To me there are three different types of problems. There are big pro-
blems, small problems and there are those little irritations that lay in the
recesses of your mind and worry you like a flea on a. dog's back.
Someone once said, "Worry is like a rocking chair-it will give you
something to do but it won't get you anywhere." That may be true, but I
contend that problems and irritations are given us by some unknown
spirit to tax our minds, give us high blood pressure and gray hair at an
early age.
Big problems don't worry me anymore. I have found that when I have
a big problem, there is usually someone to help me worry about it. For in-
stance, when I can't pay a bill or a note at the bank, I immediately call the
creditor and inform him. Doing that, I find, puts part of the burden on his
back and he helps me worry. He also helps me find a solution to my pro-
blem because he wants his money as much or more than I want to pay
him.
Small problems are not worth thinking about. They are just a part of
everyday life and should be taken as such.
Life's little irritations are a problem to me. They are things that hap-
pen on a regular basis but are not worth worrying about and there is
really nothing one can do about them. Some of the "little roosters" that
bother me from time to time are listed below.
Monday mornings.
Lawnmowers that start every Saturday morning.
Stamps that won't stick to envelopes.
Perforations that won't tear in the perforations.
Dogs that wet on my leg.
Writing account numbers on checks and envelopes.
Giving money to kids for school projects.
Birthdays after age forty.
Unreasonable people-those who don't see things my way.
Receiving "Good Luck" chain letters.
Ketchup that won't come out of the bottle.
No milk in the icebox late at night.
Girls with crew-cuts and boys with pony tails.
T.V. evangelists with styled hair and diamond rings that always
solicit money.
ZIP codes-plus four.
Aggravating trivia, that's what they are!

which had a one-sided air, the County
Commission committed itself to con-
tinuing to allow vehicle access to the
south Gulf County beaches, but they
are going to make stiffer penalties to
those who abuse the privilege and
charge higher permit fees to those
from outside the county who visit
here.
Commissioner Eldridge Money
said "people where I work have talked
to me at length about this subject and
have suggested the following mea-
sures which I would like to enter as a
motion to amend our present ordin-
ance covering driving on the beach".
Money then suggested the permits
be raised and bowed to suggestions of
$15.00 for local residents and $40.00 for
out-of-county vehicles; permit sales
allowed only from the Courthouse,
Monday through Friday; a $50 fine for
driving on the beach without a
permit; a $100 fine for speeding or
pulling skis with a land vehicle and
loss of permit on a second offense.
Money's motion was unanimously
accepted but will not become law until
the ordinance change is advertised
and public hearings held.
Sheriff Harrison said his men
have made "about 50 arrests" this
year for various violations concerning
driving on the beach.
BEACON HILL PARK
Jaycees Gene Dickey and Jef
Gardner reported to the Commission
Tuesday, that dedication ceremonies
will be held Saturday, July 4, for the
opening of the boardwalk into the
Beacon Hill section of public beaches.
Gardner said the opening had
been planned for an earlier date, but
delays and roadblocks set up by DNR
had caused a change of plans. "We
give them drawings they ask for and

Granny was ready to go on a second's
notice. She'd just get in the car with
anybody that was leaving lots of
times we'd be all the way out to the
paved road before she'd asked where
we were headed. Listen, I remember
when she was 85 or so and staying
with my Mother. She had lost some of
her hearing and she'd be back in the
bedroom with her television turned up
just as loud as it would go. You've
seen some older people do that. My
brother, out in the kitchen, four rooms
removed from Granny, would
whisper, "Let's go down to the truck
stop and get a hamburger." Before we
could reach for the keys Granny
would be coming down the hall say-
ing, "Wait just a minute I'll get my
hat and coat," '.
I rolled into Uncle Clifford's yard,
got out and began to say my hellos as I
tried to wqlk off a 500 mile trip. Before
I could get inside the house F.D. said
we needed to look around some. We
hopped into the car and off we went on
an inspection tour of the 3rd Soil
District of Lawrence County. Several
summers ago I was remodeling a
room and I figured I'd use some old
barn wood for the walls. As there were
lots of old barns in the 3rd Soil District
I ended up in Lawrence County. F.D.
was visiting that summer so he helped
me scrounge up some barn wood. As a
matter of fact as I was asking whose
place this was and would they mind if
we borrowed a few boards F.D. would

houses along these beaches until now
have had no idea where Gulf County
was even located, and could care less
about the people of Gulf County. The
only thing of interest to these people is
property value, renting cottages and
making a dollar.
Most of these property owners are
from out of state, and only spend two
weeks out of the year in Gulf County.
They figure if they complain
enough someone will listen. So just
forget about the people of Gulf County
who have grown up here and now
make their living here.
The people of Gulf County elected
these officials to care for their
interests, and not someone who
resides out of state, but owns some
property along our beaches.
The people of Gulf County have
the right to enjoy these beaches like
everyone else. Just because someone
owns property along the beach,
doesn't give them the Key to the City.
These people should feel privileged to
own property in Gulf County, and
should try and be a part of it.

they still ask for more", Gardner said.
"It's real frustrating, dealing with
those people".
Dickey and Gardner said the
Jaycees are now ready to begin work
on restroom facilities at the develop-
ing park, on the east side of Highway
98. Gardner said the decision is now
being made whether to place the
facility on the hill near a parking area
or down on the level with the highway.
Building inspector Dewayne Man-
uel said, "You better put it on the hill.
It will be in DNR's control line near
the highway and you'll still be under
the control of those pointy-heads in
Tallahassee!"
Gardner said the Jaycees will
discuss the problems involved with
both locations and report back to the
Commission before making any deci-
sion.
Dibkey invited the Board to the
opening of the park at 10 a.m., July 4.
OTHER BUSINESS MATTERS
The Commission also took action
on several other business matters,
including:
-Heard a report from Hospital
Administrator David Odum con-
cerning recent complaints on the
ambulance service. Odum said recent
changes in personnel and procedures
should solve the problems complained
about.
-Agreed to give its support for a
full-time co-operative recreation pro-
gram and full time director. The
request was made by Gloria Ramsey.
-Agreed to pay a part of a
package of medical bills incurred by
prisoners in the county jail. Bills
totaling $34,053 have been received on
six prisoners.
-Were notified by Clerk Benny
Lister that funds are running low in

have his crowbar out and two or three
boards loose before I could get out of
the truck. We fetched quite a few good
boards off of this one barn and were
taking a break when F.D. explained
that this was Uncle Marvin Harrison's
old barn, that no one had lived in the
house since Virginia moved to Nash-
ville and if Uncle Marvin was sfill
with us, he wouldn't mind if we got a
board or two 'cause he was that kind
of guy.
F.D. and I returned from our
memory trip around the area and
were eating a "light snack" at Uncle
Clifford's when someone remarked
that a fellow from Pulaski had bought
Uncle Marvin's old barn. F.D., never
looking up from his blackeyed peas
simply remarked, "Not .all of it, he
didn't."
Next week Uncle Womack had
put on a little weight.

FCC Forces Changes In

Telephone Repair & Sale


Tim Griffin, general manager of
St. Joe Communications advised the
Rotary Club of some changes already
made and some still to be made in the
telephone service here in Gulf County.
"So far, the new FCC rules have
served to 'get us out of the house' ",
Griffin said. What he was referring to
was, St. Joseph Telephone and
Telegraph has responsibilities for
your telephone service reliability only
as far as the line attached to your
home or building. Everything inside is
your responsibility and not that of the
phone company.
Griffin said the new rules which
recently went into effect, caused St.
Joseph Tel and Tel to separate itself
from the repair and marketing of
telephone systems. "This caused St.

county bank accounts and the Board
needs to examine its expenditures
closely.
-Received a commitment from
St. Joseph Land and Development
Company to make property available
on a swap basis to place a minimum
security installation here in Gulf
County.
-Agreed to name a street in
Howard Creek in memory of the late
T. D. "Doc" Whitfield. Commissioner
Nathan Peters cast the only "nay"
vote, explaining that he felt more
than one person should make a
request to change a street name
before that request was honored. The
suggestion was made by Mildred
Marbury who stated she was acting on
her own.

BBC Filming A Movie In


Franklin County Setting


The Apalachicola Bay Chamber
of Commerce (ABCC) is pleased to
welcome the British Broadcasting
Corporation (BBC) to Franklin Coun-
ty. The BBC is the premier Radio and
Television company of Great Britain,
many of whose programs have been
shown on PBS in the States. The BBC
is in Franklin County to shoot a
feature film titled "Little Sister".
According to Royce Hodge, Executive
Director of the ABCC, filming has
begun and will continue over the next
six to eight weeks on St. George
Island, Apalachicola, and the sur-
rounding area. This BBC production
will be shown on British television,
and will probably be released in the
U.S. as a feature film.
"Little Sister" is a present day
thriller set in a beach vacation area,
and is about the adventures of two
little girls who discover that the
vacationers in a nearby house are not
what they seem.
British actor John Hurt, whose
films include Alien, Heaven's Gate,
Midnight Express, Elephant Man,
Aria,' From the Hip, and The
Osterman Weekend, has been cast as
the male lead of "Little Sister".

You, Marie's Lover, and Birdie, along
with Barbara Bosson, whose credits
include The Last Starfighter, Capri-
corn 1, Mame, Hill Street Blues, and
The New Mike Hammer, are featured
along with Hurt. Ms. Bosson is due to
star in a new TV series titled
"Hooperman". Other cast members
are Jamie Waterson, Claude Brooks,
Cassie Barasch, Ellie Raab, Rose
Parrah, John- McMartin, and Gary
Basaraba.
The director of "Little Sister" is
Anthony Simmons, whose Emmy
award winning film, "On Giant's


Shoulders", about a thalidamide boy,
is well known in the States, and his
last film, with "Little Sister" pro-
ducer, Louis Marks, called "Day
After the Fair", was seen on
Masterpiece Theater in May.
Hodge stated, "Franklin County
is very grateful that the BBC chose
our area. It's the first exposure of our
natural beauty through a feature film.
We're glad to have them, as not only
will it give our sagging economy a
boost, but it's proven to be a .good
morale booster".

In making the award, Betty Jane
Ebel, Executive Director of the Girl

said that Mrs. Miller "devotes many
hours to helping develop young girls
into good citizens and assists other
leaders in all areas from camping to
transportation."
Mrs. Miller has organized day
camps and other events for Girl
Scouts in Port St. Joe. She has been a
Brownie leader, Junior leader and
assistant Cadette leader, and also
serves as volunteer director of the
Port St. Joe area troops.
In nominating her for the award,
other leaders in Port St. Joe noted that
Mrs. Miller "does many more things
than we ask her to do."

Make the Most of Your


Retirement Benefits

At retirement, do you want to be faced with a
choice between the full pension benefit you have earned
and financial security for your spouse?
You've.worked hard and look forward to
receiving your full earned pension. But when the time
comes for you to retire, you may be faced with a choice
that forces you to accept a reduced pension benefit.
Due to recent law changes, you will have
to choose between receiving your full earned pension and
providing your spouse with a retirement income if you
die first.
If this choice sounds like no choice, you may
be interested in the Pension MAXIMIZER Plan from
Western Life. It's designed to help you maximize your
retirement benefits-and provide financial security for
your spouse.
To find out more, contact:
Gary W. Barber
61 Avenue E
Apalachicola, FL 32320
Phone 904-653-2161

There's no obligation-just the opportunity to
make the most of the retirement benefits you have earned.

Things You Might Not Know About Group


The philosophy of this occasional
article has been to unveil some little
known aspects of various subjects
dealing with mor-
als, ethics, or re-
ligion. This week
is no exception. I
want to tell you
about the Nation- UND
-al Right to Life
Committee. by the Rev. Jen
This commit-
tee is dedicated to
educating the public to the reality of
abortion, and euthanasia; and their
ramifications on human society. The
committee is composed of a varied
mix of Americans. Liberal, conserva-
tive, main line, minority, and off-the-
wall religionists find themselves on
the same side of the issue with some
humane agnostics as they all try to
defend the right to life of the helpless.


For the last six years, President
John C. Willke, M.D. has ably led this
dedicated group as they have lobbied


TOWARD

ERSTANDING
rry R. Huft, Rector, St. James Episcopal

in the halls of Congress and in the
corporate board rooms 'of the news
media. For the most part, the efforts
have been uphill. But two years ago
things took a dramatic turn. Now
some of the formerly most adamant
abortionists have reversed their opini-
ons.
Two years ago Dr. Bernard
Nathanson, who had directed the


Drain Problems
Heavy rains for better than a week caused several
drainage problems around the City and kept street crews
busy "fighting fires" as problems arose from the
considerable precipitation which fell in the Port St. Joe


world's largest abortion clinic, pro-
duced a movie called "The Silent
Scream". This film portrayed,
through ultrasound images, the horri-
fying death by abortion of an unborn
child. Some of the media personalities
who had formerly made crude jokes
about pro-life workers suddenly join-
ed Dr. Nathanson in understanding
the humanness of the unborn. Ted
Koppel on ABC's "Nightline" called
the film "a very distressing video."
Since then a public outcry has
changed the media's contemptable
treatment of the pro-life cause. Shows
like "Cagney and Lacey" and "Hill
Street Blues" have not repeated their
anti-right to life episodes.
The success of this documentary
which graphically illustrated the
reality of the abortion chamber has
spurred Dr. Nathanson to produce an
even more accurate film. In this film,


area. In the photo above, the department is shown on Long
Avenue, repairing a storm sewer which had broken and
filled with sand, making it unable to carry off the excessive
amount of storm water which needed draining from the
streets. Of course, these problems never show up until we
experience the rains. And, then, some of the problems just
can't be repaired or eradicated simply because the
solution is too expensive to do on the spur of the moment.


"Eclipse of Reason", the most
advanced technology using fiber
optics has been employed.
Appearing in this film with Dr.
Nathanson is Charlton Heston. Mr.
Heston courageously takes a stand
against the national news media for
betraying the trust of the public in not
accurately reporting the reality of
what happens to a human life in the
abortion chamber.
"Eclipse of Reason" will be
released in about two to three weeks.
Watch to see how the national news
conference which parallels the re-
lease is covered by the media. When it
happens, ask yourself if it is fair, or
simply sensational.
This film is graphic, in Mr.
Heston's words, "Perhaps too graph-
ic". But it has the potential of leading
Americans "Toward Understanding".
If every American could see this film
and know the truth, no woman or girl
would naively submit to the horror of
an abortion again. Abortion would be
self-regulated, and administered only
for the most profound reasons. And
1,500,000 more babies would be
permitted to live this year.

other question through P.O. Box 786,

The administrator invites the
public to tour the facility at any time
and see first hand the many added
services now available locally. Gulf
Pines Hospital has provided uninter-

citizens of Gulf County since 1941 and
remains committed to health care
excellence for many years to come.
Provident Medical Corporation of

The corporation is planning to operate

hospital should be operated.
The business office is open nightly

the Gulf by seasons or size limits. In
an effort to improve the management
of spiny lobster, the Council will
consider options for future regulation
of this fishery which will include: (1)
management by the State of Florida
without Council involvement; (2)
management by the state and Nation-
al Marine Fisheries Service; or (3)
continued management by the state
and Council under a federal plan. The
Council will conduct its annual review
of the Tortugas Shrimp Sanctuary and
make its recommendations to the
Secretary of Commerce on whether
the sanctuary should remain closed to
fishing or whether a portion should be
opened to allow harvest for the next
season.
The meeting will be held at the
Casa Marina Resort, 1500 Reynolds
Street, Key West, Florida, on July 6-9.
Committee sessions for swordfish,
spiny lobster, and shrimp will be held
on Tuesday. The Council session will


begin at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday and
terminate at noon on Thursday. A

Local Probation Officer Chosen

As Correctional Officer of Year


The State Department of Correc-
tions has annually had award cate-
gories for Employee of the Year and
Correctional Officer of the Year.
Because probation officers are a part
of the Department of Corrections, this
year an additional category was
added for Probation Officer of the
Year. Jimmy Whisenant of the
Panama City Probation Office has
won the superior accomplishment
award for 1987 as Probation Officer of
the Year.
Whisenant was nominated by his
co-workers and first won the Circuit
and Regional competition before
going on to compete with the four
other regional winners for the title of
Probation Officer of the Year.

ed", Griffin said. "They are in that
business and must keep themselves at
a distance from the phone service
operation".
Griffin said that while several
long distance carriers are advertising
nation-wide, there is still no choice
about which carrier will handle calls
out of Gulf County. "Within about 24
months, this will probably change",
Griffin said. He pointed out that
several different systems were being
tested at the present time and new
state-of-the-art fiber optic systems
were being installed by St. Joeseph
T&T to improve both long distance
service and make the choice of carrier
more broad.
Griffin said new FCC rules are
requiring many changes in the way of
doing things. Griffin said the changes
are costing St. Joe a lot of money, but
"we still haven't raised rates in 10
years", he said in closing.
Guests of the club were Alan
Robinson of Gulf Breeze and Ed
Sheetz of Port St. Joe.


very service oriented to both the
Department and the community. He
was recognized for his dedication,
hard work, team work and sincerity.
His community involvement and
personal accomplishment reflect fa-
vorably on him as a person and also
the Department of Corrections.
Whisenant works in Gulf County
primarily where he runs a one man
program and interacts daily with
representatives of the court system
and law enforcement.
The officer has been a probation
officer for ten years and has been in
charge of the Gulf County Program
since 1981. He has handled case loads
that have averaged 95 and have gone
as high as a 107. In addition, he
conducted presentence investigations
for the court. Mr. Whisenant has
spoken to students at the local high
schools and junior high schools.
Additionally, he is currently the
President of the local chapter of the
Florida Council on Crime and Delin-
quency which is an organization for
members of the judicial and law
enforcement and court support sys-
tems and interested citizens to get
together and share information and
concerns.

Bowers Has Ambitious Goals In Navy


"I joined the Navy for the
education, technical training and the
adventure," explains the petty officer
third class.
Commissioned in 1963, the Eng-
land's mission is to carry out prompt
and sustained combat operations at
sea in accordance with national
policy. The 533-foot ship can provide a
carrier battle group with air, surface
and submarine warfare protection.
"I enjoy the work that I do. It's
both challenging and exciting," says
Bowers. "I have a great sense of pride
and achievement because the Navy is
constantly updating, making the best
better. I'm proud to know I'm a part of
such advanced technology.
"My goals include going to
college. Hopefully, when I've fulfilled
my service obligations, I will also
have completed my computer science
degree. That, along with the practical
experience I'm learning now, will give
me the edge over other college
graduates."
