Chief Maige Is Stepping Aside


After Thred Years As Interim Head of Local Police Department


It was three years and two months ato that the
City Commission asked Bob Maige to ta e over the
Police Department, temporarily. He hai served as
interim police chief since that time. '
Now, Maige, who is in his early It', and the,
Commission have both agreed it is tir! or the City
to secure a man to take over the depl otent on a
permanent basis. As a result of this agr cement, the
Commission unanimously approved a motion by
Police Commissioner Bill Fleming TueSday night,
to begin taking applications for someone to fill the
post.
Maige, who had retired after seeing many,
years as chief of the Tallahassee Polce Depart-
ment, took over the locaj department on a
temporary basis in June of 1984, after former chief


Roy Robinson turned in his resignation.
Maige said, "It's getting harder and harder to
keep qualified men on the staff". Maige also cited
health problems of his wife and a growing need to
attend to these problems as reasons for his wishing
to step aside. "I told the Commission when I took
the position that any time they wanted me to step
aside for a permanent man I would do so with no
anirposity and if I were to decide to step aside, I
would expect the sanie situation to exist". Maige
told the Commission Tuesday night he will remain
on his position until a successor is found and placed
on duty.
Fleming said there would probably be a
transition period and he wished Maige would
consider staying on until the end of the year.


At any rate, the Commission is going chief
hunting and plan to take deliberate moves in hiring
a new man.
BUDGET BEING PREPARED
Although the Commission hasn't considered
their new spending plan as yet, an embryo of a
budget has started taking shape in several
workshops, and Clerk Alden Farris revealed some
of the things being considered in a meeting of the
Kiwanis Club Tuesday at noon.
To begin with, the Commissioners have put
together a "talking budget" of $7.5 million, which is
29 percent more than last year, but requires .12 mill
less taxes to finance.
To accomplish this seemingly impossible

There are a few expenditures
which will disappear with the new
budget-one of them sizeable. Last
year, the county budgeted $120,000 to
get into the computer age. This year,
the $120,000 figure is removed from
the budget plan.
There are also some income items
missing from the new spending plan.
For instance, last year the county
received $6,298 from federal revenue
sharing. This year, the Board expects
to receive nothing from this source.

Paper Price

More Today

The single copy price of The
Star increases, effective with this
issue, to 30c per copy, a price which
also includes the new sales tax
levied against newspaper sales.
The new. price was announced
last month by the publishers, after
the sales tax levy went into effect.
Actually, the single price copy
of the paper is now 28c for the paper
and two cents for sales tax. The 30c
price was set to make it more
convenient for the cashiers la the
various places of business which
sell The Star across the counter.
Subscription rates by the year
remain the same, except the sales
tax is now applied to the annual
rate. Annual subscribers receive
their newspaper through the mall.
Annual subscription rates are
$10.00 in the county and $15.00 out of
the county, with the sales tax added
to both rates.

With Bay County installing metal
detectors at the door of their
courthouse and other state counties
either installing or considering pro-
tective measures for its jurists, Gulf
County is in the talking stage about
providing some measure of protec-
tion.
After the killing in Gulf County's
Courthouse last week, where three
people were killed in a hearing in
Judge's chambers, counties all over
the state are taking a second look at
the need for security measures in
matters of court procedures.
Chief Deputy Sheriff Mike White
said yesterday orders have been
handed down by Circuit Judge Russell
Bower for courts and hearings in the
14th Judicial Circuit.


"The judge has already issued an
order to provide some protection for
both Circuit and County judges in
chamber hearings and court ses-
sions as well.
"We have been providing armed
bailiffs for sessions of court, but have
not been providing them for chamber
hearings. "We'll have to provide a
bailiff in the future", White said.
White said no discussions had
been held in Gulf County, as yet,
toward taking more stringent mea-
sures at providing security. "We don't
want anybody hurt, but neither can we
condone having to exist in an armed
camp", White said. The Chief Deputy
said more protective measures would
probably be considered in the near
future, but as yet, only the bailiff in


chambers has been added to the
already inaugurated protective mea-
sures.
In other area counties, Holmes
County commissioners have voted to
require their Sheriff to attend their
future meetings; a practice followed
for many years in Gulf County. In
Jackson county, no extra precaution-
ary measures have been adopted as
yet.
Prior to Judge Bower's ruling,
Sheriff Al Harrison of Gulf County had
been mildly critical of placing a bailiff
inside a hearing room. "In this case,
that bailiff certainly wouldn't have
been suspecting something like this
(the shooting) and probably would
have been just one more person killed
had he or she been in the room".


Two Beacon Hill homes and a
pick-up truck were damaged Friday
night, as a result of a telephone call.
Dewayne Manuel, Gulf County
building inspector, drove his pick-up
truck through the corner of a porch on
one home and into a utility room of a
second at Beacon Hill Friday night
about 10:30 p.m.
The two houses damaged in the
accident were owned by the H. M.
Porter family of Marianna.
Manuel said he was coming
toward Port St. Joe in his truck, alone,
when he reached down to retrieve his
remote telephone in his truck. "When
I looked back up, after only a glance
downward, there was that house
coming at me. I've picked up that
phone a thousand times, but that's the
first time I ever ran into a house
because of it", he said.
Manuel's pick-up veered off the
east shoulder of the highway and went
between a palm tree and the corner of
a porch on one home, knocking out the
foundation blocks and part of the
porch structure before careening into
a utility room built on the side of the
house next door. The utility room and
the pick-up were both heavily damag-
ed by the impact. Manuel was not
hurt.
The accident was investigated by
the Florida Highway Patrol, but The


Star was unable to get any informa-

THURSDAY, AUGUST 6,1987


We were proud of the
manner in which our town
reacted to the tragedy perpe-
trated on it Tuesday of last
week. We thought the entire
populace handled the un-
speakable experience and the
onslaught of an inquisitive and
an aggressive press in a
manner which would make
anyone proud.

Almost without exception,
local people interviewed pre-
faced their answers to the
thousands of questions posed
over and over again, with the
disclaimer that this is a good
town with good people and
they will be appalled by
Tuesday's events for years to
come.

In a- county where we
experience a murder every
two and a half years, three in a
day is heady stuff for us to
have to handle on the spur of
the moment like that. People
here didn't have much time to
regain their composure before
they faced the bombardment
of the media and we thought
they handled themselves right
well.
Too, the district State
Attorney's office and the Gulf
County Sheriff's office had the
situation well ,in hand. They
came across as professionals
to a group of cynics who are


From our own experience,
we would say this time of the
year is the hardest period in
the life of a public servant.
This is the time of the year
when the budgets are drawn,
the funding requested and the
people told how much in taxes
they are going to be expected
to come up. with during the
coming year.
It's budget time and the
soothing ain't easy!
It's a hard matter to sit on
the hot seat during these times
and listen to an employee or a
department head or an elected
public servant plead his cause
as to why his particular job or
department needs more
money. In almost every in-
stance, the pleas are legiti-
mate. There are citizens out
there demanding this service
and that performance and if
they get them, they must be
paid for. All the requests are


accustomed to witnessing
bumbling actions by public
officials, but they had to
respect the actions of our
officials as they witnessed
them last week.
Both State Attorney Jim
Appleman and Sheriff Al
Harrison answered their ques-
tions in the press conference
with candor and without stut-
tering and stammering
around. If they didn't know an
answer, they gave the reason
they didn't know and the
reason made sense.
There was no dashing
about aimlessly and no lost
*motion in the investigation.
We believe the visiting media
sensed that and stood obe-
diently aside while the matter
of the investigation and gath-
ering of official evidence and
testimony was carried out.
It wasn't their nature to
stand aside and they were
plenty pushy in other areas, so
it had to be the respect for a
professional job they saw
being carried out which kept
them at bay and out of the way
until they were allowed en-
trance to the scene of the
crime.
It's nice to be able to be
proud of your community,
especially in the face of such a
happening.


for worthy causes and desir-
able activities-at least for
someone.
During this time of the
year, it is the tough job of our
elected officials to pick and
choose which jobs will be
funded, which, employees get
more money, which roads get
built, and, above all, which
ones don't.
That word "don't" can
cause more time trying to
compromise than the average
person, can imagine. That
assent which increases some-
one's taxes in order to accom-
plish doesn't necessarily meet
with unanimous approval, ei-
ther. So, whatever the deci-
sion at this time of year, in all
likelihood, somebody's going
to be glad and some are going
to be sad. The name of the
game is to try and make the
"glads" outnumber the
"sads".


Hunker Down with Kes


Lucinda Wasn't


Worth the Wait
by Kesley Colbert


Anticipation can be a great thing.
You can make it through the cauli-,
flower 'cause you know that the ice
cream is coming. Or how about the
week before the county fair opened.
Do you remember how slow that week
passed? I'd ask about every five


minutes, "Mom, is it Friday yet?"
"No, son, it's Monday."
You'd wait for what seemed like
three days and then you'd say, "Fri-
day yet, Mom?"
"No, son, it's now Monday after-
noon."


I've often looked back at it over
the years and realized that the fair
wasn't as good as the week of "an-
ticipating" what you would ride first,
that first bite of cotton candy, winning
that big teddy bear by knocking over
the milk bottles. You're the first one

One Week In A Lifetime Like Last Week Is Enough for Us, Thank You!


I DON'T WANT to go through
another week like last week, here or
anywhere else.
Even the most intense of televi-
sion dramas isn't any less tense than
the drama played out here in Port St.
Joe last Tuesday. It was a time to try
men's mettle and a situation to sadden
the most hardened of hearts.
Here was a man with a family at a
delicate age-an age when they had to
depend upon him to provide for
them-who had his life snuffed out.
One minute, he was probably men-
tally planning for what he was going
ttrdo that evening after he got home,
and the next minute, he was lying
dead on the floor of the judge's
chambers in the Gulf County Court-
house.
Another man, who had lived a
fuller life, but still had plans of
fleshing his life out with a few years of
doing the things he wanted to do, was
killed before he could think, "Is this
really happening to me?"
In just one year, this well-adjust-
ed man, who had spent his life
working, was planning on stepping
down from the daily grind and up to a


daily diet of doing his thing.
A lady I don't know much about,'
but surely she had plans to do
something other than die on the stairs
of Gulf County's Courthouse.

"because there is a man with a gun,

OIN SHRDLU
By: Wesley R. Ramsey


ALL OF THIS intense drama,
which affected so many lives so
drastically, was completed in less
than five minutes, according to
Sheriff Al Harrison's reckoning. He
said he reenacted the activities of that
fateful few moments and it took "less
than five minutes to go through the
paces".
The first one to send out a cry for
help was the Sheriff's dispatcher. We
heard her at The Star, sending out a


walking in the office door, carrying a
camera. I said, "Go immediately to
the Courthouse, there is a man
shooting at people out there!"
He left immediately and hurried
to the county building and by the time
he got there, the boiling pot was being
pulled off the fire. Sheriff Harrison
had just shot Clyde Melvin, so, you
see, it couldn't have lasted very long.
I WAS BOTH AMAZED and


were here and I was amazed at the
quick response they made to the
tragedy.
As you know, the story started
unfolding right at 10:00 o'clock in the
morning. By 10:30, our telephone
started ringing with calls from CNN
Atlanta, CBS, NBC, ABC, and others,
all wanting to know details of what
was going on.
By noon, a newspaper from
London, England had called, wanting


details.
The thing which startled me was
the speed with which the incident was
made known, even as far away as
London and the quick response to the
knowledge in order to get facts.
Sheriff Harrison said he even
received a call from Australia about
the time he got to bed and to sleep
Tuesday night, wanting to interview
him live, about what went on.
Even these people so far away,
who knew nothing about the people
involved, the town, the locale, or even
the location, had a surprisingly
accurate knowledge of what was
happening when they called.
I was impressed.
I WAS DISMAYED over the way
the media representative, who start-
ed arriving in town by 11:00 and their
lack of respect for a person's feelings
or responsibilities.
In a press conference Tuesday
afternoon, with Sheriff Harrison and
State Attorney Jim Appleman, one of
the newsmen asked Sheriff Harrison,
"Do you wish you had killed him?"
referring to Harrison's shooting of


Melvin.
That was a cruel thing to ask
anyone, much less someone who had
just gone through such an experience.

ONE THING I want to straighten
out: some of the media sort of left the
impression that lawyer Bob Moore
panicked at the sight of Melvin's gun
in that room. In fall likelihood, the
media persons who left that impres-
sion would probably have left the
room quicker than Bob did and might
not have done what Bob did after he
left the room.
You see, instead of running to a
place for his own personal safety, Bob
went from office to office, upstairs
and downstairs, telling people to get
inside, lock the doors and take cover.
There was a person with a gun,
shooting it.
Bob probably kept others from
getting hurt by spreading the alarm
for everyone to take cover before they
even knew there was danger.
I think Bob deserves some praise
for his presence of mind, not
insinuations that he might have been
cowardly or hysterical.

through the gate on Friday night and
you find that the rides have gone up 5
cents each, after the tilt-a-whirl the
cotton candy sours a little on your
stomach, and the left bottom milk bot-
tle has been glued to the table.
Anticipation. There's nothing like
it. You're a junior in high school and
you've been trying to "go out" with
Lucinda. You lay awake at night "an-
ticipating" on that first kiss. Man,
she's a dream. After weeks of this you
finally talk Lucinda's best friend,
Nola Purcell, into putting in a good
word for you. Nola comes through and
you take Lucinda out to the Dairy Bar
after the basketball game with Cot-
tage Grove. After a couple of burgers,
fries, a chocolate malt topped off with
a double fudge delight and a cherry
coke (somehow you didn't anticipate
any on her appetite) you get Lucinda
to her front door. This is the moment.
You raise up on your tip toes to ex-
perience that first kiss and it's like
kissing a brick wall. What a let down.
As you ease back down her steps
you're in a daze. Nothing like you'd
thought it was going to be. And you're
out $2.35 on burgers and fries and
fudge delights -- ever known a girl
that eats like that'- no wonder she's
so tall.
The next morning during World
History Nola tells you how wonderful
Lucinda thought the evening was and
she was looking forward... you start
on the chewing tobacco that after-
noon. The next time it looks like a
kissing situation just throw a chew
in works every time. Besides you
tell yourself, the next girl you pick out
is going to be your own size.
Anticipation can sometimes be
worse than the actual event you're an-
ticipating. Did you ever hear the
words, "Just go to your room, son, I'll
let your Dad handle this when he
comes in."
Boy howdy, it's nine o'clock in the
morning. You've got to sit there all
day waiting on your dad. Now, you
know your dad ain't gonna say much.
He's just going to take his belt and get
right to it. You anticipate on this for a
while. About ten o'clockyou open your
door very politely and then in your
most apologetic voice and through the
tears you say, "Hey Morn, can we
talk?"
I bring all of this up today because
it's August. August is a month that an-
ticipation has destroyed for me.
Remember how much fun June was -
you had a summer to kick off and then
came July with the Fourth and
fireworks and watermelons and all.
Good months. A fella growing up
could sink his teeth into those months.
But let the first day of August come
around and I immediately started
thinking that school would soon be
cranking back up and that the sum-
mer was gone and I'd have to sit in
that hot classroom and do homework
and line up for spelling bees and listen
to "Pay attention boys and girls."
Tommy would stop by and want to
go down to the big ditch. "Naw, T, we
wouldn't have any fun today, it's
August and school's about to start."
Anticipation can do weird things
to your mind. I haven't been to school
for several years now but I still get
that "blah" feeling every August. It's
almost like I know that one of these
August days someone is going to come
in and say, "Boys on this side, girls
over there .... "
Respectfully,
Kesley

Some Notes On Golf .
THERE ARE A FEW things that I know absolutely nothing about. I,
for instance, wouldn't know how to start a jet airplane, much less fly one.
My knowledge on college fraternities is somewhat deeper, but I don't
consider myself an expert. Neither does the "Greek" who came looking
for me after reading the article I wrote about fraternities a few weeks
ago.
Please be advised, Sir, that my address is unlisted and I sleep in a
different place each night.
I know nothing about computers and I don't want to know anything
about them. The same goes for car racing, soccer, knitting and surfing.

THERE IS ONE subject, however,' of which I have considerable
knowledge. It is the game of golf. I'm not saying that I play all that well,
but I have played the game for some years now and I have tried, again
and again and again!
After spending a small fortune and the best years of my life trying to
master the game, I have decided that I will never be a "great" golfer.
Some of the reasons why I believe this are listed below. These are
some observations and notes that I have recorded over the past 25 or so
years while I have struggled with the game of golf.
-In the middle of a drought, it will rain on Saturday afternoon if you
have a game planned.
-Golf balls, like dogs, like trees. They hide from the greens' behind
them.
-Sand traps have golf ball magnets in them.
S--Cursing a golf ball sometimes helps. It's called a "country club
bounce!"
-The three most commonly used words on a golf course are, "bite,
run and awwwww. ."
-The 19th hole on a golf course is where everyone goes after playing
a round to drink and lie about why they played so badly.
-Golf clubs are hard to break when you swing at a golf ball. They
break relatively easy, however, when you swing one at a pine tree.
-Golf clubs can't swim and golf balls won't float.
-A "lost ball" is when you discover your ball is on the ground beside
a coiled rattlesnake.
-A person-who has never thrown a club or cursed a golf ball is
probably playing his first round.
-An "unplayable lie" is when your ball is found laying next to a
twelve foot alligator.
-"Air Mailed" in golf does not mean a letter home. It means that the
ball you just hit is still ascending as it passes over the green to which you
are shooting.
-Most golfers play better if they don't drink while playing. Those
who do drink while playing often think they play better than they actually
do and seem to have more fun, until it comes time to pay off.
S-Golf is a wonderful game if you have plenty of money, time and like
to push your nerves to the breaking point.
When I die, I have asked that my clubs be buried with me. I wouldn't
want anyone to inherit something that has caused me so much mental,
physical and financial anguish.
- ++'+++
GOLF SURE IS a great game!


Bible Conference Speaker at

SLong Ave. Baptist Next Week


SDr. Arthur L. Walker, Jr., Exec-
utive Director of the Education
Commission of the Southern Baptist
Convention will be the featured
speaker at a Summer Bible Confer-
ence at Long Avenue Baptist Church,
August.9 12. Services will be at 11:00
a.m. and 7:00 p.m. Sunday and at 7:00
p.m. Monday through Wednesday.
Dr. Walker is a graduate of
Samford University, Birmingham,
Alabama, the Southern Baptist Theo-
logical' Seminary, Louisville, Ken-
tucky, and New Orleans Baptist
Theological Seminary, New Orleans,
Louisiana from which he holds a ThD
degree. Prior to coming to head the
Education' Commission in 1978, he was
vice president for Student Affairs at
Southern Seminary.
The members of Long Avenue


Dr. Arthur Walker


invite' everyone to come hear this
outstanding preacher and share in
these services. A nursery will be
provided for each service.


County Budget (rom Pa


spending will. be financed by an
increase in. taxable property coming
onto the rolls. According to informa-
tion provided the County by Property
Appraiser Kesley Colbert, taxable
value of Gulf County property this
year will total $364,938,876. Last year,
this figure was $348,640,728.
.Colbert also set the roll-back mill
rate-the mill rate which would result
in the same number of tax dollars


being collected at last year-at 6.580
mills.
PUBLIC HEARING
The first of two required public
hearings on the proposed new budget
will be held Monday, September 14 at
7:00 in the Commission meeting room
of the Courthouse.
The budget or mill rate cannot be
increased as a result of the hearings,
but may be decreased.


Stepping Ai
juggling act, the Commission has most of their
budget increase in the Wastewater Treatment Plant
budget, which is financed mostly by St. Joe Paper
Company and Sylvachem Corporation. The City,
through sewer rates, finances only about two
percent of the cost of operation of the plant.
The big increase in next year's budget,
according to Farris, will be an item of $1,5 million
required changes and maintenance on the WWP
settling lagoon. "The maintenance and structural
changes are required of the City s by the
Environmental Protection Agency", the clerk said.
The City completed some $1 million 'worth of
improvements to the settling basin only three years
ago, at the direction of EPA.
"This project doesn't require any ad' valorem
taxes to accomplish", Farris said.
Taxes will be required to put out an estimated
$120,000 for a new fire truck Farris said the city is
making plans to purchase. He said additional
property becoming taxable and the inclusion of
Ward Ridge into the City allows money for this


side


(Continued from Page 1)


expenditure and still lower the millage rate", the
Clerk said.
The new fire truck is needed to maintain
insurance rating requirements. "We don't really
need this piece of equipment right now, but we're
getting more and more multi-storied buildings and
houses in the City and the present equipment isn't
rated for this type fire protection" he said.
Presently the city has an eight rating for fire
insurance purposes. Farris said he feels the new
pumper will better that rating and perhaps reduce
fire insurance ratings.
The Water and Sewer department, a service
paid for by users, will see its budget increase from
$615,000 to a proposed $712,000. The increase, Farris
said, will finance needed repairs to the treatment
plant, which is now about 10 years old.
MILLAGE RATE HEARING
According to Farris' calculations, the City tax
rate will be reduced from a rate of 5.77 last year to
5.65 to finance the new budget. "Our budget isn't
even tentative yet. We may reduce it even more

Old Wewahitchka School Is Coming Down


School starts in Gulf County,
Monday, August 17, and the Gulf
County School Board says the system
is ready to open the doors in one of its
easiest start-ups in recent years.

Meeting Tuesday in their regular
session, the Board heard a report that
all teachers, equipment and teaching
materials are in place for the first day
of classroom activities. A school
official remarked that last year,
preparations were still underway on


Sunday afternoon before school start-
ed the next day. This year, the first
day is still 10 days away and the
system is already primed.
Even the School Board meeting
Tuesday reflected the situation of
everything running smoothly, when
the only item considered, other than
routine matters which keep the
system operating, was the awarding
of a bid to tear down a section of the
old Elementary School in Wewahitch-


ka. Recently the Board completed
construction of a new elementary
school in the north end of the county
and elected to tear down the 50-year-
old building.
Ray Dickens Construction Com-
pany was the successful bidder to
remove the old center section of
classrooms and administrative of-
fices. The gymnasium section and
classroom sections added in recent
years will be retained by the Board.
Dickens offered to tear down the


Srs. Want to Expand Services


by Jerry Stokoe
The Gulf County Senior Citizens
Association, Inc. would like to expand
the services provided to include
respite care. Respite care is replacing
a person that normally cares for an
invalid person for a short time. This
time is not to exceed eight hours in one
day.
This service will help the person
who provides care, the opportunity to
go shopping, keep medical appoint-c,
ments, or take short trips, etc. Respite


care will enable that person who is
quite restricted from leaving home,
due to the need for continuous care for
an invalid, some free time.
This service will be provided to
senior citizens in the most desperate
financial need first, at no charge. It
will be a service that will help the
person who is caring for an invalid the
opportunity to change his life tempor-
arily, to release the tension and
pressures that build up after being
confined for a long time.


The senior center has received
several requests for respite care
during the past several months. We
feel that this service is badly needed
in Gulf County and in the Mexico
Beach area.
Contact Jerry Stokoe or any
member of his staff at the Port St. Joe
Senior Center if you know of anyone in
need of this service. There is no fee for
this service.


building for $53,000.
Board member Gene Raffield
remarked that in previous years, the
Board could have secured someone to
remove the building for the materials
it contained. Today is another matter.
The Board cannot award a
contract to Dickens until the state
supplies him with approved directions
on how to handle the asbestos
contained in the building. The banned
material is found in the roof and floor
tile in the building and must be
removed and disposed of in an
approved manner.
Superintendent Walter Wilder
was given authority by the Board to
sign a contract with Dickens as soon
as the state provides its information.

Wewa State Bank at 8:00 p.m. CDT.
The organizational meeting, will
consist of general orientation to the
Jaycees and nominations for the
Board of Directors. Want to get
excited? Drop on by, the Jaycees are
the finest leadership organization in
existence. Whether one seeks indivi-
dual, management or community
development skills (or a new family of
friends) they'll find it with the
Jaycees.
Anyone interested is cordially
invited to attend. For further inform-
ation contact Port St. Joe Jaycee
President Gene Dickey at 648-8644 or
Wewa Jaycee member Jamie Lester
at 639-2366.
Port St. Joe Jaycees hold weekly
meetings at the St. Joe Beach
Volunteer Fire Department at 8:00
p.m. EDT on Tuesdays. The next
meeting (August 11) will be attended
by the Panama City Jaycees, nearly
750 members strong. Now we all know
they're all not going to show up, but
the ones that do will return to the "big
city" with some data that's rather
interesting. The Port St. Joe Chapter
just signed their 69th member, they
have projects ranging from the
American Indian Heritage Preserv-
ation platforms to Cerebral Palsy and
MDA efforts. Not to mention the
development of the finest community
park in the State of Florida. Not too
shabby for a chapter that's less than a
year old and one tenth the size of
Panama.
Anyone between the ages of 21 to
40, interested in helping the commun-
ity and themselves are encouraged to
attend.

Rules Set for Taking Alligator Hatchlings


During a meeting in Cypress
Gardens July 10, the Florida Game
and Fresh. Water Fish Commission
established guidelines for the taking
of alligator hatchlings from the wild.
The guidelines provide a frame-
work for alligator farm permit
holders and their agents to collect
hatchlings for alligator-rearing oper-
ations. They also provide measures to
prevent overharvest and illegal alli-
gator trafficking operations.
Hatchling harvest quotas will be
established annually to prevent ad-
verse impact on statewide alligator
populations. Only permitted alligator
farmers and their agents will be
allowed to harvest hatchlings.
The Commission also established
regulations pertaining to eligibility
requirements for permitted alligator
farmers. Specifications for adequate
holding and rearing facilities also
were, established.
Frank Montalbano, director of the
Commission's Division of Wildlife,
emphasized, "To correct some public
misconception, no action taken by the
Commission 'today constitutes the
establishment of an open season on
alligators." -.- --.
Montalbano said that while some


harvest of adult alligators is being
considered, such a harvest is at least
one year away.
The five-member Commission
also heard a report from fisheries
biologist Edwin J. Moyer on the
recent successful drawdown of Lake
Tohopekaliga. Moyer, project' leader
for the drawdown, received a certifi-


cate of merit from the Commission for
his outstanding efforts in coordinating
and supervising the drawdown.
In other business, the Commis-
sioners voted on regulations govern-
ing Type II wildlife management
areas and hunting on national wildlife
refuges.
Also, the Commission adopted


regulations for migratory game bird
hunting seasons. The regulations are
subject to final approval by the U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service.

SJaycees Take Up American Indians" Cause


by: Jef Gardner
The Jaycees are again gearing up
full fledged support to aid American
Indians. Earlier this year, the Port St.
Joe Jaycees announced the American
Indian Heritage Preservation Project
'which is a concerted effort to petition
signatures. Basically, the petition
asks the state of Florida to have
individuals or organizations prove
the amount of Indian blood inherent
prior to acceptance into programs
designed specifically for American
Indians.
Chief Little Big Heart of the


United Indians of Northwest Florida
travelled to Tallahassee on April 9 to
meet with the Governor's Council.
With her she took numerous petitions
and the Jaycees are proud to
announce that attention was awarded.
Involvement by all concerned was
originally twofold; first was to aid in
soliciting and acquiring signatures,
second was to advise the public that
hard-earned tax monies were being
misappropriated. "Now it's three
fold, we're also interested in finding
out what it takes to get the misappro-
priated monies back to where it


belongs," comment Overall Project
Chairman Jef A. Gardner.
Local Jaycees and citizens alike
feel the infamous "TraiLof Tears" -in
the 1830's was a travesty of justice, to


say, the least. Adds Gardner, "Most
hidians are too proud to ask for
anything. Here's a project everyone
can get involved with and it doesn't
cost a dime. It's costing a lot more

Gets More Than Chicken

Port St. Joe Police Patrolman, Randy Stallworth, examines the damaged
roof of Popeye's Fried Chicken Friday afternoon, after the building was hit and
damaged by a truck.
Stallworth said the truck, which was a U-Haul truck, turned into the
drive-in window of the local restaurant and came too close to the overhanging
eve, doing some $1,000 damages to the building. The truck immediately left the
scene and hasn't been found yet. Local police said an attempt to locate the
truck's home base has .come to naught thus far.

year from lung cancer the number one
of cancer killers among men. Lung
cancer has now surpassed breast
cancer as the leading cause of cancer
deaths among women.
But most lung cancer can be
prevented. Charles Tate, M.D. puts
the figure at 80 percent. Unlike most
cancers, the causes of which continue
to baffle researchers throughout the
world, the major cause of lung cancer
has become obvious. Cigarette smok-
ing is the culprit in 85 percent of cases.
Developing data suggests that second-
ary smoke may well turn out to be the
cause of the other 15 percent.
Taking a long drag on a cigarette,
the average smoker inhales deeply,
forcing smoke into the remotest
sections of his lungs. The smoke
contains tar and nicotine, which
invade thousands of the innumerable
air sacs in the lungs.
Continuing to smoke, the smok-
er's air passages become increasingly
coated with the sticky tar, which
includes several cancer-causing
agents. Ordinarily, cilia, small hair-
like structures, brush invading matter
from the air passages. But the tar
from tobacco paralyzes these struc-
tures and makes its way to the lungs.
Over several years tar residues
continue to build up in the air
passages, and begin to change the
surface cells of the passages. The
cells begin to increase in number.
Within a few years lung cancer often
appears.


From the lungs, cancer cells enter
the blood and lymphatic vessels and
spread to all sections of the body. By
the time a diagnosis finally confirms
the presence of lung cancer, the
disease has usually spread beyond
control. That's why, even today, with
all the spectacular *advances in
medical science, lung cancer still
proves 90 percent fatal.
Cigarette smoking ranks as the
largest preventable cause of coronary


heart disease. Cigarette smokers
double the incidence of coronary heart
disease over the nonsmoker. Two-
pack a day smokers quadruple the
incidence of coronary heart disease
and triple the incidence of death over
the nonsmoker. From 1965 to 1980 over
3 milliori premature deaths from
heart disease occurred in Americans
f From cigarette smoking.
The best safeguard against lung
cancer is not to start smoking


cigarettes. The best protection for
those who do smoke is to stop.
According to Dr. Tate, the risk of lung
cancer decreases after only one year
of not smoking; after 10 years, the
risk for the ex-smoker of developing
lung cancer approaches that of a
person who has never smoked.
Eighty million packs of cigarettes
will be sold today, attributing to
approximately 1,000 cigarette related
deaths per day in the United States.


This is at a terrific cost to this nation,
90 billion dollars last year. The bad
news is that many people mostly
teenagers start smoking every year.
Two thirds of adult smokers took up
the habit during their adolescence.
The good news is that more than 41
million Americans are former smok-
ers, and one out of three smokers
attempts to give up the habit every
year.

Weather Station Provides Information for Forecasts


Everybody talks about the wea-
ther, but nobody does anything about
it-nobody except Bill Cain of the
Apalachicola Weather Station. Cain,
who is a meteorologist at the station,
told the Rotary Club last Thursday
what his office does about that same
1veather everybody else is just talking
about.
First, Cain burst a big bubble for
his listeners. All those TV weather-
men aren't likely meteorologists. It
takes more than just a couple of
broadcasts to be classified as a
meteorologist. It takes a good bit of
study and it takes more doing time,
studying weather conditions to be
come a meteorologist.
Cain said the Apalachicola Wea-
ther Station, one of a chain of weather
stations operated by the federal
government, primarily collects data
for weather forecasts. "We send up an

instrumented weather balloon every
12 hours, to test what is happening in
the atmosphere", he said.
The instrument package, carried
aloft by the balloons, gives much of
the data needed to tell what the
weather is likely to do within the
following 12 hours.
"Most people consider the wea-
ther man as either nincompoops or
clairvoyant", Cain said. "The truth is


we are neither. We just collect data,
apply it to experience with similar
reactions in the past from the same
data and make an educated guess as
to what the weather is going to do".
In addition to the data collection
activities, the Apalachicola station
provides a weather warning service to
this portion of the Panhandle, espe-
cially during such times as hurricane
season. "We utilize every means of


communication at our disposal to put
out factual up-to-date information for
residents during periods of stormy
weather", the speaker said. The
station provides hook-ups for the ham
radio system which operates in this
area, to make sure there are reliable
communications during an emer-
gency.
As an interesting tid-bit of infor-
mation, Cain said, "The word "prob-


ability" in a forecast means there is a
certain percentage of certainty within
the area covered by the bulletin that
rain will fall somewhere in the
warning area during a 24 hour
period. The percentage of probability
doesn't apply to every place within the
warning area as a whole".
Guests of the club were Gary
Carlisle, Gary McCullough and Bill
Garspachen of Dahlonega, Georgia.


Several Appeal Steps for Soc. Sec. Matters


Have you applied for Social
Security disability checks? Or are you
a disability beneficiary whose case
has come up for review? If so, you
need to know your appeal rights if a
decision is made that you are not
disabled.
There are four appeal steps which
generally must be taken in order. You
have 60 days after receiving a written
notice you disagree with to request an
appeal at any Social Security office.
The first appeal step is called a
reconsideration. A thorough indepen-
dent review of your case is made by
individuals who had no part in the
original decision. If you don't agree
with the reconsidered decision, you
can request a hearing before an
administrative law judge (ALJ) who
had no part in the original or
reconsidered decision.
If you disagree with the ALJ's

Gerald Lewter, principal at Port
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. until 4:15
p.m.
Parents are asked to bring any
available school records, and the
school staff will help complete the
necessary forms.


decision, you may ask for a review by
the Appeals Council. And finally, you
may bring a civil action in a Federal
court if you aren't satisfied with the
Appeals Council's decision, or if it
declined to review your case.
You have special appeal rights if


OFFII


you get a notice that you are no longer
disabled. You can meet in person with
a disability decision maker at the first
appeal step to explain why you think
you are still disabled. And you can ask
to have .benefits continued through a
decision by an administrative law


judge (although you may have to
repay these benefits later if your
appeal is not successful).
If you wish more information
about your appeal rights, call any
Social Security office. The people
there will be glad to assist you.
