Trash Bodes Nasty Future
County Faces Half Million $ Increase In Costs
Construction workers started
making preparations to build an
apartment complex in south Port.St.
Joe this past week. The complex will
be the largest single dwelling project
to be built inside the city in many
The project, being built near
Highway 98 in the Ward Ridge section
of the city, is located on the west side
of the Garrison Avenue extension.
Major Development Company of
Bay County, is the firm developing the
complex which they say will contain
38 rental units for a total of 26,000
square feet. The apartments will be
aimed at the elderly rental market.
Tom Lewis, a spokesman for the
development, said the complex will
contain a commercial type building
for activities as well as the dwelling
units. "We plan to get underway in
earnest with construction next week",
he said. Already the firm has land
clearing operations in progress and
have put up some of their batter
boards to begin digging foundations.
A few years ago, another develop-
ment was announced for the same
area, but construction was never

Fire Damages Storage Shed
Fire caused considerable dam-
age to a storage shed on Avenue D
here in Port St. Joe last Thursday
The shed, belonging to Mrs.
John Brinson, was smouldering
when a passer-by noticed the
smoke seeping from the building
and went to investigate. On finding
the building on fire inside, an alarm
was sounded with the Volunteer
Fire department, calling the de-
partment to the scene.
Norris Langston said he found
the fire and started to try and put it
out with a fire extinguisher, but
said when he opened the door, the
blaze sprang up, making it too
dangerous to go inside.
"I just decided to back off and
let the fire department handle it",
Fire did considerable damage
to the wood frame of the sheet
metal building and caused heavy
damage to the items stored inside.

The School Board is advertising
tentative adoption of nearly an $8
million budget this week in The Star,
along with an advertisement advising
of the tax increase necessary to
comply with state requirements.
According to Wilder, the budget
will be essentially the same as last
year. He said income sources doesn't
leave the Board much room to
maneuver around outside necessities
Wilder said he expected a salary
increase for teachers and employees
and an increase in benefits. He
pointed out that county contributions
to the retirement program had been
increased slightly by the state, which
would add still another to the list of
several small increases expected to
be funded this coming year.
Wilder said the county will be
receiving approximately an addition-
al $100 per pupil in FTE funds this
year, but pointed out the county would
not receive the funds unless they
earned it through enrollment.
Wilder said the tentative figures
for the new budget show a village
rate of 6.484 for the new fiscal year.
Last year's budget required a mill
levy of 6.204.
In money, the new budget reflects
an increase of approximately $240,000.
On the expenditure side, the
largest increases are in the personnel
categories, where modest increases
The proposed tentative school
board budget is printed on page eight
of this week's issue of The Star.
Superintendent Wilder points out that
the figures are tentative. "If there is a
change, it will be a change caused by
a reduction in the budget and not an
increase", he said.
Lack of Quorum Delays Meeting
The regular meeting of the City
Commission, scheduled for Tuesday
night, was postponed Tuesday, due to
inability to get a quorum at the
meeting. The postponed meeting will
be held Tuesday night, July 28 at 8:00

Two Industries Sign Three Year Pacts with Unions
Two labor contracts were ratified
by Port St. Joe industries and their
operating labor unions last week here
S min Port St. Joe.
Basic Refractories, which has
been negotiating with its operating
union during the month of July,
reached agreement and signed a three
year pact with its operating union.
Plant officials report the three
year pact contains a .modest wage
increase in three steps over the three
year period, as well as improvements

The plant has 35 union employees
and eight salaried employees and
produces magnesium oxide, which is
used in a variety of applications from
agriculture to steel production.
St. Joe Container's Port St. Joe
plant also reached agreement with its
production unions last week, after just
a few days of negotiations.
The plant and union signed a three
year pact which gives employees a
boost in salaries and fringe benefits.

Farris said only minor matters
faced the Commission Tuesday eve-
ning, "So the postponement doesn't
pose any big problems", he said.
The City started construction this
week of a small building behind the
City Hall to house an emergency
"The generator will carry the
Fire Department, the Police Depart-
ment and City Hall in times of
emergency, such as a hurricane",
The clerk said the generator was
obtained from military surplus and is
more than adequate to carry the city
hall complex. The need for such
auxiliary power was underlined dur-
ing Hurricane Kate in November of
1985. Farris said the generator
operates by diesel fuel, but the City is
investigating the possibility of con-
verting it to natural gas fuel.
"The new generating equipment
will come on if our power goes off for
any reason", Farris said.
An earlier attempt was made
several years ago to provide emer-
gency power at City Hall, but was
dropped when a generator obtained
for the building was found to be faulty.
The City Hall is usually a point of
emergency operation headquarters
during any disaster or severe storm.
During Hurricane Kate, it was the
command post for a National Guard
unit dispatched to Port St. Joe by
Governor Graham to help with
protection of property. A lack of
electric power was a hindrance at that
time and underlined the need for the

For years France has
bowed under to the wishes of

in exile to providing safe
places for their terrorists to

them spread terror through-
out France. Only to have them
kill French people and upset
No doubt it was an unin-
tentional side effect, but the
actions in recent days among
the French and the Iranians
have verified the position of
the U.S. toward Iran. That
position may have been a little
fuzzy to define, but the crux of
the policy was that we didn't
trust the Iranians and we were
sick and tired of them kidnap-
ping our people and we were
searching for a method of
retaliation and suppression
for their activities.
Even the latest move to
supply naval power to keep
the Persian Gulf open to
traffic is meeting threats by
the Iranians which all but

naval forces at home, we'll
allow non-enemies to sail

avenue or for any purpose,

things about the French in the
past for attempting to appease

last give them credit for
knowing when and where to

It isn't unusual for a newspaper to

are practically a necessity and they

we had twelve marbles in the circle.
You add Jim Bob, Buddy and LaRen-

play 3 up. We'd be shooting at 18
marbles. When it come your turn -

In the July 16, 1987, Star your
headline indicated that Mexico Beach
has hired engineers to make a request
for permits. The hiring has not
occurred. It depends on Councilman
Marquardt who made the motion to
pay Baskerville-Donovan Engineers
$9,000 for preapplication services. Mr.
Marquardt owns the largest marina in
Mexico Beach and is the City
Councilman authorized to expend the
City funds for the canal. He must find
a bank or other lending institution and
borrow the $9,000 for the City. He must
insure that future City annual budgets
include monies in the Canal Depart-
ment allocations to repay the $9,000
plus interest., The repayment will
come from taxpayer monies. There is
a chance that part of the $9,000 can be
recouped from long range grants, if
any, from the Florida Recreational
Development Assistance Program.

Some Things About Beards
SEVERAL YEARS AGO I read a story about a man who, along with
several friends, went on a week-long hunting trip. He didn't shave that
When he returned home, everyone urged him to shave and get rid of
his "ghastly" beard. He refused!
The story was long and involved, but in the end the man lost his
family, job, home and everything he had just because he refused to
shave off his beard.
BEARDS HAVE LONG been a subject that cause considerable
debate. I, on an impulse and a long lazy weekend, decided to grow a beard
and see how the subject was broached by my friends and acquaintances. I
have learned a lot.
Kids are fascinated by beards, but as a rule, don't like them. My kids,
however, urged me to grow one and now forbid me to shave it. Kids, I
think, associate beards with villians much like they do people wearing
black. They all want to feel of it, though.
I haven't taken a poll, but most women, I think, like beards if they are
kept neat and trimmed. My wife likes mine, as does my daughter and
several close female friends. There is one friend, however, who can't
stand it and has told me so, in no uncertain words. "Shave it off," she
said, "you look like a detestable old fool!"
ONE THING THAT IS surprising to me is the number of men who
wear beards that I have never noticed before. Once you see a man
wearing one a couple of times, you tend to forget about it..
Most men who'don't wear beards don't like them. One reason for that,
I think, is that most of the men who don't wear beards, can't grow them.
It's either that or they grew one once and shaved it off and vowed to
"never do that again!"
BEARDS ARE A LOT of trouble and they worry you. When you first
start to grow it, your face feels like it is infested with fleas. If that's not
enough, everyone has smart comments to make about it like, "You forgot
to wash your face this morning", or "What did you do, lose your razor?"
Another thing, beards will age you. I never realized I had gray hair
until I started my beard. My hair is a natural "dirty blonde" except
around my chinny, chin, chin. There, it is as gray as. .well, it's gray.
Beards are just as much trouble, if not more, as keeping a clean
shaven face. To keep it neat, it must be trimmed and combed each
morning lest you look like the wild man from Lake Wimico.
Beards tic d your nose, lips and neck. If you do manual labor, as I
often do, it is hard to wipe the sweat off your face.
The actual truth is: beards are a lot of trouble and can be nasty and
worrisome! I'll be glad when winter gets here so I can shave mine off.

system, several new prisons were
funded in this legislative session.
Ifam unable to convey in words
the endless hours your legislators
spent in obtaining two of these major
'facilities arid one new forestry work
camp in northwest Florida. Senator
Barron and Representative Robert
Trammell worked tirelessly to obtain
a 732-bed quick construction prison in
Calhoun County near Blountstown.
That facility will provide jobs for 200
plus people. They are also working to
obtain one of the 200-man forestry
camps for Gulf County. That should be
a reality very soon. This will also
provide up to 50 new jobs in that
Rep. Sam Mitchell has for the
past two months spent endless hours
with' me and those people who
ultimately will make the decision to
locate a prison in Holmes County near
Bonifay. This facility will also be a
quick construction 732-bed unit which
will employ 200 people.
It would not be possible to- build
these facilities without money. Sena-
tor Pat Thomas who chairs the Senate
Appropriations Subcommittee which
funds prisons, fought very hard to
obtain and to maintain the funding to
build two new prisons (rather than
one in your area.
You should call or write all of
these legislators to thank them for
their efforts to bring jobs and money
to your area. I am sure they would
welcome your comments.
I would be derelict to not say a
special "thank you" to you the
citizens of these areas. Prison siting is
not an easy task. You with your
enthusiastic cooperation and hard
work have made these sitings easy
and pleasant. We all owe you our

MUST YOU BE SICK?
Your body has the ability to fight off disease. At the
first symptom of an invading infection, the body
manufactures its own antibody for relief.
Unfortunately, if your body has not sufficient
energy and strength, the battle can be lost. That is why
it pays to visit your physician regularly for a check-up.
He can prescribe medication, when needed to make
your body strong enough to fight sickness.
"A GREAT MANY PEOPLE ENTRUST US with
their prescriptions, health needs and other pharmacy
products. We consider this trust a privilege and a
duty. May we be your personal family pharmacy?

Shark stadium has been the practice field this summer for Louis Berry, a
Panama City native who has signed a professional football contract as a punter
with the San Francisco 49'ers. Berry has been coming to St. Joe each day to prac-
tice on our field because he likes "the footing the grass gives me. This is one of
the best fields in the area." Hard work is the name of the game as he practices
every day an average of 80 punts. He is shown above concentrating as he kicks
the ball. Playing high school ball at Mosley in Lynn Haven, he averaged 43.1
yards per kick his senior year. Florida State University signed him to play col-
lege ball, and he averaged 42.4 yards per kick during his college career. Berry
reported Sunday to the 49'ers camp to begin practice for the upcoming season.
Berry is engaged to Pam Sanborn of Port St. Joe and they plan to marry on

shipyards in Panama City, and as a
laborer at a paper mill. Mr. W. Misses
working, but he had to retire because
of his increasingly poor health. He
suffers from back and hearing
problems, and he needs glasses but
does not have any.
Mr. W. attended school for about
four months in the first grade, but had
to quit to help his father on the farm.
Learning about the literacy program
from his neighbor, Mr. W. asked for a
tutor to help him improve his reading
skills. He participates in the meal
program at the senior center and he
meets his tutor at the meal site for his
tutoring sessions. He rides the senior
center's van to the sessions which are
held twice a week for one hour each.
When asked about his preference in
tutors, Mr. W. reported thai he did not
care how old or what sex his tutor is.
He had been working with his tutor, a
retired woman, for about two months,
but she has been in the hospital this
past month, and no one has been
available to substitute for her. Mr. W.
is anxious to resume his tutoring
sessions, and is receiving encourage-
ment and support from his brother for

His tutoring goals include being
able to read the Bible and to write
letters to friends. Since his brother
cannot read either, Mr. W. has had to
ask neighbors to read his mail for
him. When questioned about some of
the things he has learned so far in his
tutoring, Mr. W. stated that he was
able to use the telephone for the first
time in his life, and that the first
person he called was his tutor. He has
also learned to write his own name,
knows the names of some of the letters
in the alphabet and some of their
sounds, and is just beginning to
recognize some basic sight words.
Being able to communicate better is
important to Mr. W. because he has a
speech defect which hinders his
ability to interact with people who are
not familiar with his speech.
If you have an acquaintance like
Mr. W., or if you are helping a
nonreading friend, relative, or neigh-
bor by reading their mail to them,
make sure you tell your friends that

available in Gulf County. The number

Governors around the country
proclaimed July 1st "Centenarians
Day" in honor of all persons who have
reached the age of 100. In the nation's
capitol there was a special ceremony
to pay tribute to this nation's
Centenarians. "A salute. to these
remarkable individuals is long over-
due," says Dr. Robert E. Windom,
Assistant Secretary for Health, U.S.
Department of Health and Human
It may both interest and surprise
you to know that Centenarians are the
most rapidly growing age group in the
United States. In 198, there were some
25,000 people who had reached this
great age, a 66 percent increase over
1980. Furthermore, the *Bureau of
Census projects that there will be as
many as 50,000 Centenarians in 1990
and 100,000 in the year 2000, thus
doubling and tripling the present
population. "It is remarkable to
contemplate living in an era when the
over 100 age group is one of the fastest
growing segments of the population.
Even more remarkable are the
changes that these people have
witnessed from the invention of the
gas engine to the conquest of out
The Big Bend Health Council will

1987. The first will be at 10:00 a.m.
EDT in the Communicare Center,
Classroom two of Tallahassee Com-
munity Hospital, 2626 Capital Medical
Blvd., Tallahassee. The second will be
at 10:00 a.m. CDT in the meeting room
of the Hobdy Carter Building, 2629
West Tenth St., Panama City.
The purpose of these public
hearings is for the council to accept
public comment, both written and
oral, concerning the draft proposed
primary, health care plan and man-
power shortage study.
The draft outlines the current
- capacity and future needs and service
areas for Bay, Calhoun, Franklin,

St. Joe Elementary School, is request-
ing that students who are new to the
district and will be attending Port St.
Joe Elementary School next school
year, register as soon as possible. It is
important for school personnel to
have an accurate count of students so
proper staffing plans can be made
during the summer.
The school office is open Monday
through Thursday, 7:00 a.m. to 4:15
p.m. Parents are asked to bring any
available school records, and the

Also included in the draft are the
council's policy guidelines for future
proposals requesting to establish
related facilities in the area. David
Carter, executive director for the
council, remarked that, "Public input
is essential in developing a planning
product that reflects the needs and
priorities of the local population."
Once the plan is finalized and
approved by the council, it will
become a part of the council's district
health plan. The -district healt-hpplan

Centenarians are a curiosity to
both the public and the scientific
community. Everyone wants to know
just what it is that they do or don't do
that enables them to live so long. The
fact is, the chances of becoming a
Centenarian are very slight; about
1,150 persons in 100,000 according to
1979-81 Census Bureau data. It ap-

Attract Wildlife to Your Yard
The Game and Fresh Water Fish
Commission is offering a free booklet
concerning how to attract wildlife to
The 36-page booklet, titled "Plant-
ing a Refuge for Wildlife: How to
Create' a Backyard Habitat for
Florida's Birds and Beasts", is a
creation of the Commission's Non-
game Wildlife Section and the U.S.
Department of Agriculture. In addi-
tion to color photographs, written
information and charts, the booklet
includes illustrations by wildlife artist
"Putting up bird feeders and bird
'houses does help wildlife, but these
are temporary measures," said Susan
Cerulean, co-author of the booklet and
head of the Nongame Wildlife Section.
"This booklet goes far beyond that. It
tells what kinds of plants will help
turn your yard into a more natural
habitat for all mindss of birds, animals
and even reptiles."
Ms. Cerulean said many of
Florida's new residents tend to
landscape their yards to resemble
their former lawns up north or out
west or in other parts of the country.
"So they use exotic (non-native).
plants that can look pretty but don't
provide food or suitable nesting space
for native wildlife," she said. "By
using native plants, people can have
attractive lawns that are in tune with
Ms. Cerulean said she hopes the
booklet will help Floridians develop
an appreciation for the wildlife they
can encounter on a daily basis even in
a small yard with native plants and
other natural features. She said
Florida's current population boom is
taking a heavy toll on wildlife, and it's

reaching 100 are more favorable in
Hawaii than in the District of
Columbia. The longest living Amer-
ican is thought to have been Mrs.
Fannie Thomas, who died in 1981 at
the age of 114. The oldest person in the
world was probably Schigehiyo Izumi
of Japan, who died last year. He was
at least 120 years of age.
In April of this year Gulf County
Senior Citizens along with the com-
munity of Wewahitchka paid tribute
to Gulf County's own Centenarian,
Mrs. Fannie Hill. "Miss Fannie" was
born on the 8th day of April in 1887.
Today, she is a loving and devoted
mother, grandmother and great
grandmother who cherishes her fam-
ily and speaks of them with much
tenderness and affection. She is an
avid church goer and an active
member of GCSCA. Miss Fannie rides
the van to the senior center each day
to partake of the noon meal, to chat
with her neighbors and friends, and to
participate in the other activities that
are offered there. She also attends the
annual picnics and other special
functions. Miss Fannie is a virtual
fountain of information about the
early history of Wewahitchka. When
asked how she managed to live to
become 100 years of age, she replied,
"I trusted in the Lord, and I just
alwyas did the best that I could."
The July 1st Centenarians Day is
a national event that should be widely
celebrated each year. "The idea is to
focus on the oldest old; says Dr. T.
Franklin Williams, Director of the
National Institute on Aging (NIA).

Health Council Decisions Will
Affect Gulf County Needs
The Star, Port St. Joe, Fla. Thurday, July 23, 197 Page Thirteen
New Director for Panhandle Alcoholism Council Takes Over
As new Executive Director for the
Panhandle Alcoholism Council
(PAC), Robert Wilford plans to palace
more emphasis on incorporating the
philosophy of a 6-county program.
"Each of our county offices have
active community advisory boards,
and we will be looking to them for
more recommendations regarding
our services," Wilford said. He added
the boards set up special task
committees to study particular areas
of need, and their input is submitted to
the corporate board for consideration.
"We believe our advisory boards
understand their communities' likes,
dislikes and needs, and we want the
boards to continue to be pro-active,"
Another area of emphasis will be
adolescent and family treatment
services. Starting Over Straight
(SOS) is a new outpatient and
residential program that opened
earlier this year, designed to meet the
special needs of the 13 to 17 year old
substance abuser. The program in-
volves a 12 step recovery process and
offers a full range of medically
supervised evaluation and treatment
services for alcohol and drug abusing
teens and their families. "Family
involvement is a key factor in the
treatment process, since alcoholism is
a disease that affects the family as a
unit," Wilford pointed out. The
Family Intervention Project (FIP) is
an eight week program that includes
group counseling and individual fam-
ily assessment sessions for the entire
Wilford himself is a recovering
alcoholic with nine years of sobriety,
having been a practicing alcoholic
from the time he was 17 until age 33.
"According to statistics, children
of alcoholics have a greater chance of
succumbing to substance abuse," he
said. "I now have a 15 year old son of
my own, and I have a keen interest in
developing programs that identify
and treat the disease at an early age."
Wilford, a native Floridian, hopes
to make PAC's DUI school the most
effective program in the State of
"Our DUI program conducts
classes for DUI offenders in the
6-county area, and we will work
closely with our judges to ensure the
program meets optimal standards,"
he explained. The 6-county area
served by PAC includes Bay, Gulf,
Washington, Jackson, Calhoun and
The DUI program will continue its
aggressive 'Don't Drink and Drive'
public information campaign to edu-
cate people on the dangers of driving
"Statistics show us that after 10
p.m. on Saturday the incidence of
drunk driving according to the legal
definition greatly increases and as
many as 50 percent of all drivers will
be involved in a drunk driving
accident at some point in their lives."
Wilford noted. "Passengers of im-
paired drivers are killed and injured
about as frequently as the drivers
themselves." One of DUI's major
goals is to identify early abusers
before they get behind the wheel with
a lethal weapon, and try to make them
more responsible drivers.
PAC works closely with the
medical communities and other
health care-related professionals in
the delivery of care to substance
"It's important to keep the dignity
of the program intact and to treat
people with respect," Wilford empha-
sized. "Too often, people who must
deal with this problem are destroyed
unless they receive help from caring,
Wilford firmly believes in the 'we'
"As the agency's director, I can
accomplish very little by myself but
we in the six counties can accomplish
anything we set,our minds to do," he
During the next few months he
will be meeting as many people in the
6-county area as possible. Although
he, his wife Diane and son Scott live in
Panama City, he plans to travel
frequently to the other counties. He
invites all persons interested in
talking with him more aboutthe PAC
prograins to indicate their interest by
calling the local PAC office, 227-1128,
or to call him at (904) 769-1632.

nity service program to screen

Florida Wildlife Magazine Enters
Fortieth Year of Publication
You won't find it on your local
newsstand, and millions of Floridians
have never seen it, but the award-win-
ning, colorful Florida Wildlife maga-
zine has been around for 40 years.
Florida Wildlife, published by the
MFlorida Game and Fresh Water Fish
Commission, has told the stories of
,aquatic and terrestrial wildlife since
"The first issue ran only 16 pages
'and did not have full color," editor
!John Waters, Jr. said, "but today,
Florida Wildlife is a high-quality,
full-color bimonthly that was ranked
'last year as one of the top 10
conservation magazines in the United
States and Canada."
Waters also noted that, "The
magazine is a noncommercial, co-
operative venture between our 29,000(1
public subscribers and the Commis-
sion. Subscribers pay a $7 annual
subscription, about two-thirds of the
magazine's total cost for preparation,
printing and circulation."
A typical issue has stories,
photographs and artwork which fea-
tures fishing, natural history, wilflife
art, hunting, game and fish laws,
outdoor safety, threatened and en-
dangered species and related topics.
"Our readers are a diverse group
of conservationists, naturalists and
sportsmen," Waters said, "ranging in
age from school children to senior
During the four decades Florida
Wildlife has been published, there
have been many significant changes
in Florida's human population, wild-
life and the land itself.
"In 1947, for instance, the endan-
gered Florida panther was so com-
mon throughout the state that it was
an unprotected species," Waters said,
"and our lakes and rivers were not in
imminent danger of pollution. Today,

may now be sold by fresh water fish

The game fish affected by the new
law include sunshine bass, bluegill,
shellcracker, other sunfish and black
crappie. Black bass and pickerel are
still protected from commercial pro-
Fisheries Biologist Rick Stout of
Lakeland said this regulation applies
only to those game fish that are
privately produced in man-made fish
culture ponds. '
A man-made fish culture pond is
one that does not occur naturally, does
not exceed 20 acres and falls entirely
within the grower's private property.
"Only aquaculturists who pro-
duce and grow fish can sell them,"
said Stout, who works on the statewide
project. "This rule does not allow a
fisherman to catch game fish from a
natural lake, then turn around and sell
There are additional regulations
says Stout, that aquaculturists must
follow in order to get their fish to
market. "It's not just a grow 'em and
sell 'emr proposition."
Fish farmers must first apply for
an aquaculture gam fish license.
