Park Budget Cut
Improvement Plans Are Vetoed
T. H. Stone Memorial State Park,
on St. Joseph's Peninsula, felt the
gubernatorial budget axe Tuesday, as
Governor Bob Martinez did his much
publicized thing in cutting the "tur-
keys" from the state spending plan. In
spite of the "Martinez massacre", a
$18.3 spending plan was approved for
the coming fiscal year.
Governor Martinez, who has
been credited by news media as being
the author of the largest tax increase
in modern Florida history, cut some
$140.5 million from the original
spending plan. The Governor said
supporters failed to justify a state
need for several basically local
projects. Some identified the vetoed
items as "turkeys". Governor Marti-
nez used the word, "squandering",
when he referred to the items he
lopped off Tuesday.
Several area counties felt the
Governor's veto axe before the state
budget was finally signed into law
One of those state-funded opera-
tions which had its money requests
erased was projects for the state park.
Park manager. James Mock said
he had no idea which improvement
request had been cut, but said the
$76,000 struck from park requests
"sounded like it could be the planned
improvements we had requested for
the marina at the park."
Mock said he didn't make the
requests, personally. "They came
through the park service and I don't
really know what was planned, since
it was to be a contract job".
Captain Mock said a request was
filed with budget planners for some
new camper cabins at St. Joseph.
"One director said the request was for
four new cabins and another says it
Swas for six. Either way, the cuts of
Tuesday- couldn't have--beenr-these-
items since one cabin costs us in the
neighborhood of $40,000 each".
Mock went on to say he felt the
governor "Wouldn't have cut out an
item which makes money, anyhow."
Mock said the park now has eight
cabins in operation. "They stay
rented all the time. They're booked up
now, solid, through September", he

Four Inches Rain In 11/2 Hours
A severe rain storm swooped
into the Port St. Joe area Monday
about 12:30 and dumped some 4.5
inches of rainfall before moving on
an hour and a half later.
The rain storm brought heavy
winds and hail with it and flooded
several city streets and buildings.
Reports are that the rainfall
was confined to an area between
just west of Highland View and the
St. Joseph Bay Country Club area.
The hail was reported in the
residential area of Port St. Joe
between Fifth and 16th Street.
Rain gauges throughout the city
recorded from 1.4 to 4.5 inches of
rainfall during the hour and a half
period, between 12:30 and 2:00 p.m.

gave several Port St. Joe vicinity
residents some anxious moments
during the night time hours over the,
past week end.
The military complex of Eglin
specializes in training Commandoes,
stealth operations and jungle survival
and brought their training grounds to
the outskirts of Port St. Joe Friday,
Saturday and Sunday nights.
The trainees swooped into the
area in unlit helicopters, after dark,
and set down their crafts at the air
strip near Jones Homestead.
Sheriff Al Harrison said opera-
tions for the maneuvers was centered
around the old Coast Guard station on
St. Joseph's Penisula, but a change
in plans at the last minute had moved
the aircraft landing area to Jones
Homestead. "We had no advance
notice and so couldn't alert the people
in this area of [what was going to
happen. As a result, there were a lot of

Port St. Joe's Rotary Club installed a new slate of
officers last Thursday, as they began their 48th year of
operation here in Port St. Joe. Dr. Dan Duncan was
installed as president of the club, replacing Henry Cassani
in the office. In the photo above, Dr. Jorge San Pedro,
treasurer, looks on at left and secretary Dick Lamberson is
shown at right, as Dr. Duncan, second from left, presents
Cassani with a past president's pin. Vice president, Alden
Farris, was not present. The Rotary Club meets each
Thursday at noon in the Motel St. Joe meeting room.
Mock said the eight cabins in the
park, bring in more revenue in rentals
than all 120 campsites combined.
"Again", Mock said, "I don't
know what has been taken out. We'll
more than likely not know for another
two to three weeks, until the word
filters down. I don't think it is the
planned new cabin construction,

headquarters of the park service on

St. Joseph State Park is a
year-round favorite with campers
who want to take advantage of a
beach setting and also enjoy a wilder-
ness atmosphere. The park features a
sugar-white sand beach on the Gulf of
Mexico and fishing, crabbing, boating
and shell collecting on the St. Joseph
Bay side of the Peninsula. The
wilderness area provides nature
observations through hiking trails,
birds, wildlife and plant life.
The cabins furnish an air-
conditioned oasis for those whose
taste for nature experiences run in
small dosages at a time.

Fire chief, Brent Etheridge, reads firing directions on one of the giant
salutes to be set off Saturday night at the Florida Bank park.
Saturday Night In the Park
Fireworks will be featured at a July Fourth community celebration
Fireworks have been purchased by the City of Port St. Joe, to be set
off in observance of the Independence Day holiday.
A fireworks display has been presented in the City for the past
several years, and usually draws a tremendous crowd of observers for
the colorful display.
As usual, the collection of bombs, sky-rockets, light displays and
a climax display of the American Flag will be ignited by members of the
Port St. Joe Volunteer Fire Department during the evening.
The fireworks will be shot off from the fill leading to the City Pier and
will be aimed out over the bay. Spectators are asked by Fire Chief
Etheridge, to stay well behind the shoreline to avoid any possibility of
injury. "These are very powerful items", Etheridge said. "They should
be treated with respect and caution".
Spectators are invited to stand, sit, squat or lie in the Florida Bank
park to view the free display.
Experience has shown that people gather for the spectacle all along
Highway 98, as far away as Oak Grove each year, to gain an unobstructed
Etheridge said firing of the salutes will probably begin around 9:00
p.m. "Just as soon as it is dark enough to give the full effect, we will start
the program", he said.
The fireworks display is specially prepared by their manufacturer
for use as a public display.
Beacon Hill Park Opens
j At 10:00 A.M. Saturday
The Gulf County Beacon Hill
Community Park (Phase One) will
celebrate Grand Opening this Satur-
day, July 4. Launched as a cooper-
ative project between Gulf County and
the Port St. Joe Jaycees, the park has
continuously been unfolding into an
architectural element that promises
to set standards in park development
Local Jaycees spear-heading the
project are Gene Dickey, Gregg
Burch, Jef Gardner, Chris Acree and
David Bloodworth. The park encom-
passes nearly 40 acres of land, a
majority of the property is on the
inward side of U.S. 98, and is located
just east of the beacon at Beacon Hill.
Dickey comments, "the boardwalk on
the gulf side of U.S. 98 was completed
earlier this week and is now open for
public use, it only lacks some finished
carpentry detailing." Burch adds,

Talk About Your
It isn't pretty, seeing
someone charged with doing
wrong. It's especially grue-
some to see a public servant
charged, particularly after he
has spent a public career
trying to pick nits when it
came to going by the book.
Department of Natural
Resources Director Elton Gis-
sendaner, as you know, has
been charged by a Grand Jury
with using his official position
to enrich himself by $80,000 for
using his influence with the
Florida Marine Patrol in
behalf of a marijuana smug-
The real charge, was
failure to pay income taxes on
the $80,000, resulting in the
Federal Government seeking
The former DNR head (he
resigned immediately when
the Grand Jury indictment
was handed down) reportedly
used the $80,000 to pay a
contractor, in cash, for con-
struction of a duplex in
If Dr. Gissendaner paid a
contractor $80,000 in cash,
even if it was obtained legally,
it was a foolish move to make
if he wanted to avoid trouble.
We're reminded of Dr.
Gissendaner's mounting his
trusty steed of righteousness
when Raffield Fisheries han-
dled a legal catch of redfish
caught in Louisiana, in a
manner Florida fishermen
had been using for 30 years,
claiming Raffield had done
wrong, in spite of a precedent
which had been set by others.
There are those who
might have thought Raffield
may have acted a bit careless-
ly, in light of the vendetta Dr.
Gissendaner seemed to have
for Raffield in the first place.
Dr. Gissendaner was no
less prudent when he paid a
contractor some $80,000 in
cash. Whether or not it was
right, it just doesn't look right.
Dr. Gissendaner, of
course, is expressing his in-
nocence in the matter, giving
all kinds of reasons why the
charges should be dropped
and everything forgotten.
We wonder if he is now
recalling the charges his
department instigated against
Raffield? We wonder if he is
recalling how his men watch-
ed Raffield for several days to
catch them in a situation they
felt they could move on?
Raffield knows he was mani-
pulated in his situation; we
wonder if Gissendaner now
feels he was manipulated?
Could there be that much
poetic justice in this matter?
We must side with the
average rank and file person
in Gulf County when it comes
to denying them use of our
beaches for recreation. Ev-
eryone in this county has just
as much right to use the
beaches of south Gulf County
-as those people who have
enough money to purchase the
shoreline around them.
If the Gulf of Mexico were
a lake, we. would say the
property owners have the
exclusive right to it. To the
Gulf of Mexico and St. Joseph
Bay, we feel this right doesn't
As an aside, let us say
Commissioner Billy Branch is
getting vilification he doesn't
deserve in this matter.
Branch also feels the
general public has a right to
the use of the beaches. He may
have used an ill choice of
words or not fully expressed
himself when he made the
remark about closing the
beaches to traffic to solve
problems in south Gulf Coun-
ty, but we know from attend-
ing all the meetings, he isn't in
favor of this action. He merely
remarked it would solve the
problem ... of the complaints
from property owners in the
vicinity. It would not solve the
problem of people who wish to
drive on the beaches.
In our opinion, Branch sits
in a glass house as chairman
of the Board, and he does a
good job at filling that posi-
tion. Branch is never absent
from his duties. You can't say
that about some of the others.
If they think they need a
vacation they take it, even
though Gulf County is paying
them a sizeable salary to be on
the job. This is especially a,
problem now, since each
Commissioner is the only
representative responsible for
his particular district.
We're taking up for
Branch in this instance. He
has a good feel for what the
people want and is catching
some undeserved flack from

Let's -see, where were we in this
story? My Mom's folks were having a
family reunion on one day's notice.
We were over at Uncle Clifford's
awaiting for more of the family to
show up. I'd brought my youngest son,
Jesse, 'cause he doesn't say much, he
doesn't eat much and he doesn't like
to travel.,As we discussed last week,
the Kennedy clan doesn't count you as
a real member unless you can do all
three with a great amount of gusto.
We had gathered around the kitchen
table like you're supposed to do at
times like this and Mom, Aunt Bea-
trice, Aunt Ruby Nell, Aunt Evelyn
and Uncle F.D. were all talking at
once. Ruby, as usual, was a'getting a
little more in than the rest. Jesse was
a'watching with his mouth open when
we heard the car horn start blasting.
All but Ruby Nell stopped talking
as we headed out back to greet the
new arrival. My older brother Leon
slides his car to a halt, hops out and
says, "Do ya'll know what's forty four
feet long and has seven teeth?"
THURSDAY, JULY 2,1987
Now folks, there's some people
here that Leon hadn't seen in a year or
two he doesn't say hello or hug any
necks he wants to know if we know
what's forty four feet long and has
seven teeth. You can't imagine how
well Leon and Ruby Nell get along
together. He still had his golf shoes on.
Word of the reunion had reached him
on the sixteenth green he didn't putt
out. He didn't even tell his wife. See-
ing as how it's only a hundred and
twenty miles from the golf course to
Uncle Clifford's he just got in the car
and headed out. He waited the appro-
priate amount of time for an answer
and then said, "The front row at a
The next afternoon the reunion of-
ficially started with the big eating at
the Mt. Zion Church. We were in luck
as the creek was down and no one had
any trouble getting across. We were
all a little disappointed with the crowd
as only 176 of the Kennedy clan show-
ed up. We felt a little better when
someone pointed out that there'd just
been one day's notice for this thing
and F.D. only brought one of his
children. I don't know how many
children F.D. has. I'm not sure
anyone does. It's the only family I've
ever visited where each child wore a
The picnic table behind the
church is about fifty feet long. They
were having to back pick up trucks up
by the table to hold all the food. I
forgot to tell you the Kennedys can
also cook. Listen, when you eat like
that family does you'd better be
able to lay out a spread. They could
and they did. I took one look at my
cousin Bill Kennedy's plate and knew
I wasn't even in his league. I asked
him if he knew Vicki Lamberson. And
I wish ya'll could have tried some of
that angel food cake stuff with the
strawberries in it. I took one bite and
announced that I didn't know who
made this but I was a'going to find out
and go home with them.
I saw Jesse once during the
eating, he wasn't saying anything but
he had corn on the cob in each hand.
He's learning. F.D.'s daughter, Lori,
wasn't saying much and wasn't eating
much I was kind'a worried about
her. Surely F.D. wouldn't have a
daughter not schooled in the Kennedy
ways. Of course Ruby Nell wasn't
eating. You can't eat and talk at the
My. Uncle Womack is one of my
all time favorite people. He married
into the family and when I was a boy I
didn't think that he could speak. He
never said a word. Years later I
understood. Being married to my
Aunt Beatrice for over forty years he
just never got any practice. He sure
looked good he'd put on a lot of
weight I bet he's up to a hundred
and thirty pounds now.
On the way home I couldn't help
but thank God for such a wonderful
family. Then I said a little prayer for
all the folks in Pennsylvania. Ruby
Nell is moving up there. Have you
ever in your life heard of anyone mov-
ing to Pennsylvania? Then I got to
worrying some about Lori. She acted
almost too normal to be a Kennedy.
About fifteen miles south of Mont-
gomery I got the shock of my life
when Lori raised up from the back
seat and said, "Are we in Florida

American holiday. A holiday in which
Americans can really get into this

The July 4 holiday reminds us
Americans once again that our nation
was wrested from a form of govern-
ment which left too much lacking for
theearly settlers of our nation.
Understand, Great Britain has
always been and is still one of the
staunchest friends this nation has
ever had, but there was a time when
our people and their king disagreed on
the manner of assessing 'taxes. This
disagreement led to an open rebellion
and finally a shooting war in which the
colonists defeated the mighty British
army which had a reputation for being
the best fighting force in the world.
Still, the stubborn backwoodsmen
from Tennessee, the farmer from
Georgia and the flour miller and
cobblers from New England, who
didn't know anything about military
matters, thought they were supposed
to protect themselves while they
fought those with which their nation
had a disagreement. The British, on
the other hand, lined up their soldiers
We still have the huge taxes on
items which offer a question as to
whether or not they should be taxed.
There is a levy or two which is
unpopular among the people. There

are taxes which recall grumbles of
what happened in Boston harbor those
215 years or so ago and just what

The king of England thought he

people whether or not they approved
of it. Their disapproval turned to more

officials for life during the early days
of our nation.
I think it's important for our
elected leaders to have it brought to
their attention each year, just why
this nation came into being in the first
place. It was plain and simple. The
people just became fed up with the tax
leaving practices of their government

they were doing about the only thing
they could think of to do to change the

picnics, softball games, boating, play-
ing games, etc., than it is for being
remembered as a holiday of strife and

to drag this new nation, kicking and

cooperation of the family and neigh-

We'll have our fireworks display
again this year, and it will be a
reminder of the rockets which burst in
air over Fort Sumpter. It will be a
reminder of the cannon fire at New
York, Valley Forge and other battles
of that day for independence. The
reminder, however, will be tempered
with a day of play, frivolity, visiting,
barbecue, lemonade and recreational
It's fitting that July 4 should come
on a Saturday, since Saturday has
come to mean a day of relaxation and
enjoyment among our people.
While the struggle which evolved
into the July 4 celebration started with
grim reality, it's to our credit that
today in our nation we can relax on
such an auspicious day. There is no
need for parades of military might to
remind us that our nation is strong;
there is no need for organized
activities to remind us once again of
our need for discipline; there is no
need for controversy in our Congress
I as to whether or not the day is worthy
of national holiday status.
Americans remember July 4 as
that period in history when their
nation became free and independent.
It's that same freedom and indepen-
dence which allows us to complain
about our taxes, our government, our
station in life. It's also our ticket to do
what we can to change the situation if
we don't like it, and in the meantime,
feel free to celebrate as we please
without fear of reprisal.

I Am the Flag .
I am the American Flag. I wish to speak to all members of my
I will speak from the wisdom of a long life. From when I unfurled my
thirteen stars over two hundred years ago, through standing proudly on
the gray surface of the shining moon, to the present. I have lived long,
traveled far, and I, the American Flag, have something to say to my
I, the American Flag, have seen much. So listen, and listen hard.
I was in the hand of my first president in the blood and snow of Valley
Forge, I was there when my nation was born, small, with a wilderness at
her back, and seas at her sides, and not one friendly neighbor to whom
she, as a struggling infant orphan, could call for help in distress. I saw
that child survive and grow strong, to belch smoke from steel furnaces
and to break virgin prarie, until wastelands were blanketed by fields of
ripening grain. I flew on to ride from steel girders topping out
skyscrapers in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles.
I have earned the right to speak. The price paid for my freedom of
speech is a price few remember or can comprehend. Most forget, but I
still see in my memory those men and women who died for me at Pork
Chop Hill, Verdun, Normandy, Iwo Jima, Pearl Harbor, the Coral Sea,
Okinawa, Corregidor and the Asian jungles half a world away. And, when
they died for me, I wrapped them in my love and draped my honor over
their caskets in tropics, deserts and seas.
Those who died for my right to speak in freedom are buried in the
Flanders Field of France, the Punch Bowl in Hawaii, in the outskirts of
Manila, the Philippines, and in many other places under the sun. I fly
proudly over their green graves at all of these places, praying that wars
might end forever. Never forgetting them, I rise every morning to watch,
hour after hour, over the graves of our finest, whose years were short but
whose service was longer than we can ever measure.
Yes, I the American Flag, have lived long, traveled far and endured
much. A million lives and more were sacrificed to give me the right to
speak. Now, I will break my long silence, and I shall speak... Listen!
I shall speak about my land, today and tomorrow, her tragedy and
triumph, her sins and her glory. I shall speak about my world, for my
heart weeps for all nations, all men and women and little children, of
every race, creed and color.
I, the American Flag, now speak.

Being A Grown-Up
WHEN I FIRST learned to drive at about age twelve I couldn't wait
until I received my driver's license.
After I was awarded my license to drive, I couldn't wait until I could
find a girl to date. When I finally found a girl who would go out with me in
a pick-up, I found it extremely difficult to talk and drive at the same time.
Shortly after I had mastered the art of driving and talking at the
same time, I could hardly wait until I was "grown-up" so I could take the
girls I dated into a bar and get them drunk and have to fight them off me.
This ploy, by the way, cost me a small fortune later and never came close
IT'S IRONIC,I think, that young people can't wait to be "grown-up"
and grown ups want to turn back the clock. .pardon me, the calendar.
I remember it well, younger) folks, but let me tell you a little of what
it's like, being a grown-up. .
SWhen you are grown you ,can sleep as late, as you want. You don't
have to go to work or anywhere else. If "sack-time" is your thing, you can
lay in the rack until you get bed sores or your breath burns the pillows and
no one will care.
Another thing you can do when you are grown is eat all of anything
you want. Have you always dreamed of eating ice cream for breakfast?
Well, you can eat a mixing bowl full, with a combination pizza on the side
for breakfast and only your druggist will know.
What about cussin'? If you vocabulary runs in that direction, you can
cuss until your tongue turns blue and you blister the paint on the walls
and, as long as you're in the wrong crowd, nothing will be said.
I Have you always wanted a car that you could drive until you burn up
all your road taxes? If you can afford to buy the one you want and the gas
and tires to do it, you can drive until you run out of road or you get
car-sick, whichever comes first.
Some people don't like to sleep. Well, you can stay up all night for two
weeks running and nothing will be said because you are a "grown-up."
You may kill yourself driving your car to get new tires and a tank of gas,
but, horsefeathers, that's the way life is in the jungle!
Who, pray tell, likes to work? Grown ups detest it just as much as
young people do. If you don't want to go to work when you are grown, lay
out. After a few "lay-out-of-work" days, however, the finance company
will come and pick up your car.
When you are grown, you can buy things when you have no money.
You can use "plastic" money and you can get enough of it that you won't
be able to pick up your wallet or purse and buy 'till your heart's content.
You can live in style for about three to six months or daddy bails you out.
The other alternative is called Chapter 11.
THERE ARE MANY advantages grown ups enjoy. The above list has
nothing to do with advantages, or, for that matter, beihg grown up. It is
just a few wild thoughts that occurred to me.
Gee, I hope I grow up one day!

been in her places of learning, listening to children by the hundreds of
thousands, yes millions, pledge their allegiance to me. I heard them
recite in accents of the south, the north, the-east and the west.
Yes, I have been stained, torn, spit upon, and defiled by my
detractors for two hundred years. Still, I'm proud of my country, its
schools, its courts of law, its assembly halls where laws are passed. I'm
proud of my country, the men and women from all walks of life, all
dedicated to the dignity of man.
I, the American Flag, will speak. Listen:
I'm proud of my country. Yes, in spite of all her sins, and they are
many; In spite of her shame, and she is not without her share of shame. I
am still proud of America. Show me any other country that is stainless,
spotless, sinless, or shameless over whose people I could fly with greater
honor. I'm proud to fly over my imperfect America. For I know of no
other people who have been swifter to unselfishly spend billions of dollars
sailing strange seas, soaring through unfamiliar skies, to rescue
beleaguered, besieged people with skin colors, facial features, foreign
religions, that all seemed odd to the eyes of kids from Peoria, Illinois and
Sioux City, Iowa..
But, their hearts never noticed, for the young G.I.'s saw them only as
oppressed, tortured, fellow human beings who were hurting and crying
for help. So, our American soldiers ploughed on through the mud, leaving
a trail of their own blood behind, as they liberated people they had never
seen before and would never see again. And along the way, they found
time to deliver babies of primitive mothers and pass out chewing gum
and candy to children.
And with the peace, they simply went home to mom, asking no thanks
and expecting no monuments. Surely, never aiming to conquer territory
or build a world empire.
I'm proud of my people's gifts to the world. For two hundred years,
I've been packed in the trunks and suitcases of doctors, clergymen,
missionaries, and educators. Together we traveled to Africa, China,
India, Japan and the uttermost parts of the Earth, to share the good life
we were enjoying in America. Here these ambassadors built institutions
that still stand today. Hospitals, schools and churches. Americans, be
proud of our country. For no country knows greater freedom than our
When you see me flying in legislative halls, schools, courthouses and
churches, listen to the rustle of my stars and stripes as I cry out to every
boy and girl, every man and woman. Dream your dreams: dare to
believe: You can make it in America.

Upset With DNR
We wanted to address a couple
issues regarding the Gulf County -
Beacon Hill Community Park, the
first is DNR. Phase One has faced
retardation (the term seems to fit
rather well) and Phase Two will
follow. In retrospect, their actions (or
lack thereof) can only be defined as a
true waste of tax-payers hard earned
money. We have never asked for
'special' consideration just plain
consideration. DNR has not been
willing to cooperate with regard to"
design input; wasted phone calls and
trips to Tallahassee have been to no
It may not be the entire depart-
ment (DNR) that's practicing negli-
gence to the public, hopefully it's just
a few individuals. Regardless of the
minute philosophies or psychology
that these individuals practice or
believe in, it is they we must deal
with. As an American Indian, I am
thankful that such departments exist
in the great State of Florida too bad it
took them so long to become organ-
ized, or are they? As a resident, I am
appalled at 'pass the buck' or 'let you
know next week' (which never comes)
I have an enormous amount of
respect for my parents and one thing
they taught me is that everyone works
for somebody. With that in mind,
gathering documents, drawings,
plans, photos, media clippings, etc.
and making up a cover letter to
describe the contents mades sense.
Especially when one considers that
the 'package' will be forwarded to the
The second issue is trash dump-
ing. Someone decided to dump two
bags of trash at the park this week, no
surprise it takes all kinds to make
things interesting. The surprise is that
in one of the bags were documents
with addresses of the owner of the
debris. So if the trash has disappeared
by Friday morning no questions
asked. If not I have spoken with
Sheriff Harrison and he has described
in detail the penalty and fines
involved for such a ludicrous act.

Lisa Marshall and Jimmy Griffin Are Married
Lisa Mae Marshall and James
Oliver Griffin were joined in holy
matrimony on June 6 in a candlelight
ceremony at the First Baptist Church
of White City. The double-ring cere-
mony was performed by Reverend
Doctor Daniel Duncan. The Reverend
William Smith offered the wedding
The bride is the daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. Wallace J. Bishop of White
City and the bridegroom is the son of
Mr. and Mrs. Oliver Griffin of Port St.
The sanctuary was decorated
with palms, ferns, white mums and
white candelabra. Family pews were
marked with white satin bows.
The prelude was rendered by
pianist Jackie Surrey of Foley,
Alabama. Soloist was Mrs. Sheila
Tison of Panama City accompanied
by Mrs. Eloise Harper of White City.
The bride was given in marriage
by her parents and escorted to the
altar by her father. The bridal gown
was of nylon glittered satin and lace.
The fitted bodice was enhanced by a
V-neckline edged with triple ruffles of
lace and hand sewn seed pearls. The
high collar and blouson sleeve bands
were also accented with lace and
pearls. The full skirt extending into a
chapel length train was of tiers of
alternating lace and satin ruffles. The
bride chose a hat adorned with a
cluster of silk roses and tulle forming
a short veil. The bride carried a
cascade of white cymbidium orchids
with white and blue rosebuds inter-
twined with lillies of the valley and
pearls. The gown was designed by the
bride and hand-sewn by her mother.
The maid of honor was Alie
McClund of Madison. Bridesmaids
were Teresa Griffin, the groom's
sister-in-law of Panama City, Stepha-
nie McGreggor of Tallahassee and
Teresa Leach of Panama City. All
were gowned in Vibrante Blue Coupe
Deville. The fitted bodice was de-
signed with rounded necklines encir-
cled by double ruffles and full
gathering added dimension to the
elbow length blouson sleeves. The
floor length skil-t fell from soft gathers
at the waistline finished with a ruffle,
which extended up to the waist in the
back forming a bustle. Their head-
pieces were cascades of blue silk
flowerettes. Each attendant carried a
nosegay of spring flowers in white and
various shades of blue.
Best man was Oliver Griffin,
father of the groom. Groomsmen were
Wayne Bryant of Gainesville, Ga.
brother of the groom, Tim Griffin of
Port St. Joe, brother of the groom, and
Dennis Griffin of Panama City,
brother of the groom.
Following the ceremony the
bride's parents hosted a reception in
the church social area. The reception
area was beautifully decorated with
ferns, candles and blue floral arrange-
ments. As the guests entered they
were invited to sign the bride's book
attended by Karen Smith. The bride's

In this bizarre situation, noncom-
batants and civilians were protected
and respected. And the good people of
Pennsylvania came to the rescue of
the fallen from both armies, as they
established emergency hospitals at
Gettysburg College and other sites.
Men who cared for each other
were thrown together in a mortal
clash. The names of local landmarks
took on tragic meaning. The Devil's
Den, Cemetery Hill, the Fish Hook, a
creek named Bloody Run, and other
locations are remembered for mas-
sive loss of lives.
The worst, and most unthinkable,
part of the battle came on the third
day when "Pickett's Charge" took
place. General Pickett sent 15,000
Confederate soldiers, in a line that
stretched for more than a mile and a
half, up a hill into the face of withering
To the rhythmic beat of drums
and the rolling notes of bugles these
men marched in close order drill into
cannon and rifle shot, which was
coming from behind a stone wall at
the top of a ridge.
Only 150 men made the trip to the
top, and they were quickly repulsed.
One foreign observer of the battle
said, "My God! The magnificence and
tragedy of Pickett."
Afterward, the remnant of the
Virginia Army began a slow retreat
that eventually ended in total defeat
for the Confederacy.
On November 19th of that year,
while the war raged on, the Gettys-
burg National Cemetery was dedica-
ted. It was here that Lincoln delivered
his famous Gettysburg Address.

matter the whole Civil War, prove?
How are we to understand such a
Several observations can be
made. First, we learn that men of
honor and high principle are willing to
make the supreme sacrifice for their
beliefs. Also, we see that men of this
caliber will protect and respect the
innocent victims of their own con-
flicts. Thirdly, it is heartening to know
that mercy replaces anger as former
combatants' care for one another's
needs. But perhaps most important of

ENJOY YOUR SUMMER LIVING
There is too much good fun to be had during the summer
months to let it be interrupted because of carelessness. If
you will follow the good advice in this bulletin you will
have a more pleasant summer.
AVOID OVEREXPOSURE TO THE SUN
A good protective cream, plus a sensible going slow at
first, is the best way to avoid a sunburn. Tan slowly and
safely. This year we hope you will not have to buy
anything to relieve the pain of a bad sunburn. We have
many good sun protection products.
DO NOT OVER-EXERT IN HOT WEATHER
Heat or sunstroke are really dangerous. Drink plenty of
water especially when perspiring very heavily. This will
avoid dehydration. Keep a normal diet and do not either
overdress or underdress.
BEWARE OF FRECKLES AND BLOTCHES
In later years the cute freckled faced youngster is likely to
become the leathery faced man and in turn this can
develop into skin blotches. Blotches could be the beginn-
ing of a skin cancer and should be checked quickly if they

Kight is a broadcast veteran, with
31 years experience in the industry.
He started his career as a disc jockey
in his native California, and worked as
a jock in California, Arizona and
Wyoming. In 1968 Kight joined the
Meridith Corporation in Kansas City,
Missouri, where he became sales
manager for KCMO-AM and KFMU-
FM. After five successful years with
Meridith, Kight was appointed gene-
ral manager of a privately owned
radio station, KAYQ. Kight also
worked for the AVCO Corporation as
sales manager for WRTH, St. Louis,
Missouri before moving to Pensacola
in 1977 where he was general manager
of WNVY. In 1979 he became general
manager of a company that owned
WDLP in Panama City and WFTP in
Fort Pierce. In 1981, WDLP was sold
to Fred Lindholm and Don McCoy and
Kight concentrated all of his efforts on
WFTP, Fort Pierce. In 1985, that
station was sold to the Ingham family
and Kight stayed on as general
manager of their broadcast proper-
In addition to WJST WJBU, the
Ingham's also own WTRS AM-FM in

time, and receiving more of his
personal attention and expertise.
"It's a real pleasure to finally be
actually living in Panama City," said
Kight. "I grew very fond of this area
during the time I was associated with
WDLP, and while the opportunity
offered by Lindholm and McCoy was a
substantial one, I did have a measure
of regret about leaving the area!"
Kight has been involved in
country music programming for more
than 20 of his 31 years in the industry,
so he will bring worlds of experience
and knowledge to WJST. "In case
anyone is wondering" Kight said,
"WJST will most certainly continue to
be a country music station!" A
variety of new programs and features
will be ,added to the station's
broadcast line-up which country fans
will be sure to enjoy. Local news will
also continue to be an important part
of the WJST daily menu, as will
weather and boating information. "If
something is important to our listen-
ers, I guarantee you that it will be
important to WJST!" Kight reported.
One example of that interest in the
things the local community is interes-
ted in is a commitment to broadcast
FSU Seminole football. The full 11
game schedule will be aired on WJST
starting September 5.
