Industry-Deep Water Port-Fine People-Safest Beaches in Florida


New Developments



Singles Shielded Inez


Huckeba from Harm
It has been 16 days since the tragic shooting which took the lives of
three persons at the Gulf County Courthouse, and still new developments
are unfolding and as yet untold facts being revealed about the five minutes
or so it took to snuff out the life of Panama City attorney, Tom Ingles,
Circuit Judge W. L. Bailey and Peggy White Paulk.
Clyde Melvin, 62, of Apalachicola, is charged with the shooting and is
still being held in the Gulf County Jail, awaiting trial on three charges of
murder and one count of aggravated assault with a firearm.
One of the new revelations which surfaced this past week and still isn't
generally known is a change in the chronology of events which led up to the
capture of Melyin on the jailhouse roof, after being shot in the neck by
Sheriff Al Harison.
At first, authorities gathered bits of information concerning'the event,
which indicated the hearing in Judge Bailey's chambers were over and the
session was being adjourned when Melvin started on his rampage with a
.357 magnum pistol. Newer bits of information reveal that the hearing was
evidently just beginning to get started, with only a couple of preliminary
motions made and the meat of the matter still to be addressed, when the
events started to unfold.
Information gathered subsequent to the shooting has also shed a
different light in-the part attorney Tom Ingles played in the scenario. First
reports indicated Ingles was probably attempting to dis-arm Melvin, when
he was shot in the chest and killed. New information reveals that Ingles
was attempting to talk Melvin into laying his gun down and that he
positioned himself in front of Inez Huckeba, shielding her from the bullet
and taking it himself. Ingles' reaction to the situation probably kept Mrs.
Huckeba from being killed.



Grand Jury Convening
A grand jury will be convened in Gulf County Monday for the purpose
of considering an indictment against Clyde Melvin in the July 28
sensational triple murder at the Gulf County Courthouse.
According to court authorities, the grand jury will consider only the
Melvin case and will consider all parts of the event before formally filing a
charge against Melvin. The accused slayer is now being held on three
counts of murder and one count of aggravated assault with a firearm.
The grand jury may increase the charges, lessen them or remove all
charges against the defendant.
The grand jury activities are carried out behind closed doors.
The grand jury hearing is a preliminary to any court proceedings
Melvin may experience from the situation he finds himself in. The jury will
consider the evidence, the testimony of witnesses and other aspects of the
case and file a presentment, giving their decision as to the disposition of the
case.
Several pieces of evidence or testimony will probably come out in the
g.,rand jury .hearings. whichibeyhae._qtbeentreetaled.before until they could .
be given for the official rep0rd.



Bailey Is Honored
Attorney Bob Moore, asked the Gulf County Commission Tuesday, to
consider naming a special room in the Circuit Judge's suite in the Gulf
County Courthouse, after the late Judge W. L. Bailey, who was slain in his
chambers on July 28.
Moore asked that the room be designated as the W. L. Bailey Memorial
Library and set aside for use as a law library for the several court officers
stationed on the second floor of the courthouse.
"This room is only used now to house legal books and documents and
wouldn't be denying anybody the use of an office currently used for other
purposes", Moore said.
The local attorney, who is now an assistant public defender in the
county's judicial system, offered praises for Judge Bailey and the manner
in which he served the court system of the Circuit and particularly in Gulf
County. "The Judge always made himself available for the needs of the
court system in our county. He didn't just run over here, do just what he
had to do and then leave. He made himself and his knowledge of the law
available at any time it was needed."
Moore also described the Judge as a very caring individual. "He was
concerned with the welfare of everyone who came into his court".
Moore presented the Commission with a resolution extolling the
attributes of Judge Bailey, for the Commission to adopt. The resolution
identified him as a Deacon and faithful member of the First Baptist Church
of Blountstown, a devoted family man, a valuable member of the legal
profession and active in the civic projects of his district.
The resolution designating the room as the W. L. Bailey Memorial Law
Library was unanimously adopted by the Commission.

Beefing Up Security
Beefed up security in courthouses and courtrooms throughout the state
of Florida, is going on at full speed ahead as a result of the courthouse
slaying here in Port St. Joe in late July. Gulf County is getting in on the
trend toward creating safe courthouses, also, with a start being made in
providing armei guards for every court proceeding while it is in progress.
Sheriff Al Harrison advised the Gulf County Commission Tuesday he
was under court orders from senior Circuit Judge Russell Bower to provide
an armed deputy for every session of both the county and circuit courts. "I
am goirig to abide by that order", Sheriff Harrison stated Tuesday.
The Sheriff advised the Commission of the order and his reactions to it,
to advise the Commission the armed guards were going to cost money
which wasn't in his budget to finance. He was, in effect, asking the Board if
they wished to furnish more money to his department to pay for the extra
duty.
"Right now, I pull a deputy in off the road when an arm of the court is
in session. That means there are no patrols going on while a judge is sitting
in the courts."
Harrison was asked if he hadn't been furnishing armed bailiffs in court
in the past and if the new requirements wouldn't require just a little more
manpower than in the past.
Harrison said the judge's order called for an armed deputy to be in all
hearings and court sessions. "In the past, we have been able to use a
corrections officer as a court bailiff in jury sessions only. Now, we're
required to use a certified deputy in all sessions. Sometimes both county
and circuit courts are active at the same time and this means two certified
deputies tied up with court duty".
For the time being, the Commission decided to take no extra steps
toward financing the new duties.
Sheriff Harrison also reported to the Commission he had borrowed a
metal detector from Tyndall Air Force Base to use at the entrance to the
courthouse if the C(ommission wished. He said it would take a while for the
County to purchase its own since the detectors are in short supply now.
"Everybody is wanting to buy metal detectors for their courthouses, and

Beach Residents Want Liability Freedom


The Gulf County Commission took
the first step Tuesday morning,
toward beefing up their restrictions
for driving on south Gulf County
beaches, in the midst of the most
impassioned presentation by resi-
dents of the St. Joseph Peninsula
vicinity as yet presented in the long
drown-out matter.
The audience was about equally
divided between those who favor
allowing continued driving on the
beach and residents who were in favor
of a total ban of vehicles on the white
sands from both ecological and safety
reasons.
Joe Elkins, a resident of the
area, set what was perhaps the most
understandable stance by the resi-
dents of the area and made their
position a one of sympathy for those
present who wished to continue
driving on the beach. Elkins said,
"Those who drive on the beach and
were interested enough to come to this
meeting are probably responsible for
our problems zero percent. You're not
even causing our problem". Yet he
pointed out they would be denied their
pleasure of using the beach for
recreation because of the ones who
were causing the problems.
Elkins said, as disagreeable as it
was, the only solution to their
problem, as he saw it, was a complete
ban of driving on the beach. "You
can't enforce your restrictions, no
matter how hard you try", he said.
"The only reason I am here is to see
what I can do to relieve myself of any
liability should any of these irrespon-
sible people get hurt on my property".
David Smith, another resident of
the area, presented a document he
had prepared; asking for the beaches
to be closed to vehicles. "It is a matter
of ecology and safety", he pointed out.
He pointed out the legal description of.
Spyblic beach is between the mpan
high and low water marks. "That isn't
a very big piece of property", he
pointed out. He said the high water
mark in front of his property is 100
feet on the water side of the dune line,
charging that recreational vehicles
regularly drive up and down the dunes
on his property.
Smith said some property owners
may start building barricades around
their beach front property if they
can't get some relief from those who
disturb residents, drive in a reckless
and destructive manner and have
virtually no respect for anybody or
anything on the beaches.
Mrs. Barbara Saunders said she
had seen her taxes jump on her beach
front property increase 10-fold in the
past eight years, but the services
remain the same. "Now, we are
invaded by these people who throw
trash on our property, destroy our
facilities and run over turtle nests".
Mrs. Saunders estimated the
traffic on her beach to be "now up to
150 vehicles a day" and charged,
"They're not fishing!"
Sheriff Harrison then stated,
"There's not 150 cars on the beach. We
do periodic aerial surveys of the
beach and physical counts as well. On
July 4 week end, we counted, from the
air, 72 vehicles on the entire beach".
Not much was said by proponents
of driving on the beach, except to
present a petition, delivered by Mrs.
Becky Weston, containing some 500
signatures.
As a climax to the matter, the


Commission approved a motion to
adopt their new set of beach driving
regulations, as contained in a revision
of their first permit ordinance adopt-
ed over a year ago.
The new regulations call for
permit fees of $15 for residents and $50
for non-residents. Speed is limited to
20 miles per hour. Pedestrians and
pets have the right of way. No driving
is allowed on dunes. Throwing out
trash, reckless driving, driving after


10 p.m., and pulling skiers from a
vehicle are strictly prohibited.
The next public meeting on the
ordinance revision has been schedul-
ed for Tuesday, August 25 at 7:00 p.m.
DER THREATENS
Administrative assistant, Larry
Wells advised the Commission Tues-
day the county is getting some letters
from the Department of Environmen-
tal Regulation, which could be termed
threatening.

Jail Escapee Caught


Here Monday A.M.


An escapee from the Holmes
County Jail was apprehended here in
Port St. Joe Monday morning, and
returned to Holmes County just after
noon Monday.
Port St. Joe Police officers, Lt.
James Graves and Patrolman Jim
Savage apprehended the escapee near
the Griffin Concrete plant at ap-
proximately 8:15 Monday morning.
Apprehended was Robin Victor
Leoson, 18, of West Germany. Leoson,
along with James T. Williams, 26 and
Rosario B. Garcia, 22, escaped from
the Holmes jail Sunday, after jam-
ming the door to their cell to keep it
from locking and overpowering cor-
rections officer Doug Losse. Estelle
Holmes, a jail guard, was struck in
the head as the three made their way
from the lock-up.
Monday morning, Valeria Jones
of 106 Clifford Sims Drive went out her
back door and saw a young man
sleeping on her back porch. She called
the police and the young man
immediately lft the house, going off
into the woods.


A short while later, Graves and
Savage, surmising the young man was
the Holmes escapee, saw a young man
they didn't know in the vicinity of the
concrete plant and stopped him for
questioning.
The young man said he had come
into town on the train, but that he had
caught the wrong train.
Graves assured him he had
"caught the wrong train. This train
dead-ends right here", he said.
At first the young man gave his
name as Robin Sims, but since his
description fit the one given out by
Holmes County, Holmes deputies
were summoned to come pick him up.
"'He has several more names he
could have given you" deputy Billy J.
Baxley told local police.
Leoson faces charges on the
escape and assault of officers, grand
theft auto and numerous other char-
ges in California, Texas and Okla-
homa.
The other two escapees were
apprehended Tuesday, after heading
off in a different direction that Leoson
did.


Wells said a letter received from
DER since the first of the month,
notes the county has not filed
complete reports on the closing of the
St. Joe Landfill, nor has it complied
with DER rules and regulations in the
Buckhorn Landfill; the only one still
in operation.

advises that Gulf County is burying

Andrews

Tests for A

New Heart
Oris Andrews, of Port St. Joe
-will possibly become Gulf Coun-
ty's first heart transplant patient
in the very near future.
Andrews, a victim of serious
heart disease, went into Talla-
hassee Memorial Hospital this
week for testing to determine if
he is a viable candidate for a
transplant. The testing period
was scheduled to be completed
yesterday afternoon. If he is
considered a possible transplant
candidate, he will remain in
Tallahassee Memorial and go on
the computer heart search sys-
tem, awaiting the availability of
a human heart donor.
Andrews, a former employee
of Apalachicola Northern Rail-
road company, has already had
two by-pass procedures perform-
ed in 1977 and 1978. His condition
has now deteriorated until he has
reached the point where the
transplant is being considered.

Hunting

So, Port St. Joe is on the
hunt for a new police chief.
To the best of our know-
ledge, the new chief-when he
is selected-would be only the
sixth man to fill the post since
the early 1920's. That's quite a
span for such a job.
That speaks well for Port
St. Joe, too. We don't chase
our police chief off with every
change in the city hall regime,
nor do we find ourselves
having to let our police chief
go because of corruption or
malfeasance of office. We
have been lucky enough to
have had some pretty good
and stable men to fill the post
over the years, and we see no
reason why this tradition
couldn't continue.
The City Commission has
decided to select a committee
to screen applications for the
position, and make final rec-
ommendations to the Com-
mission for the final selection.
A police chief is a pretty
delicate position, even in a
small city like Port St. Joe. He
is as visible as any public
servant in our county. He will


A Chief

live in a glass house, just like
one of our ministers. He must
also be willing to get ac-
quainted with the people to the
extent that he can pretty well
sniff out any wrong-doers
simply by considering what
crime has been committed
and in what manner.
Our interim chief, Bob
Maige has done us a fine job
during his three years at the
head of the force. When you
consider that Maige came
from a big city operation to
head up our department, he
did an exceptional job, since
he had to change all his
ingrained habits for operating
a police force.
Offer your support and
your advice, if asked, in the
selection of a new police chief.
Let's do it in a manner which
will perpetuate the low-key
manner in which we have
maintained law and order in
our community.
We still live in a city of
unlocked doors. With the right
man at the head of our law
force, we can continue to do
so.

Hunker Down with Kes


Burnt Oil


and the Mange
by Kesley Colbert
e


As I sat down to write this morn-
ing, two things came to mind. Now, I
know what you're thinking! You've
read a couple of my stories and you're
saying to yourself, "I didn't think
anything ever came to his mind when
he 'sits down to write' ".
This morning I've been thinking
about dog days and Kuwaiti oil
tankers. Now, these two subjects are
probably not as compatible as peanut
butter and grape jelly. They don't ex-
actly go together like ham and eggs,
Mutt and Jeff, cornbread and butter-
milk, Lonzo and Oscar... I threw
Lonzo and Oscar in there for you
cultured readers.
Dog days are on my mind because
about this time a' year I do my annual
"going to the dogs" article. But I ain't
sure dog days arrehere yet. I'd hate
like the dickens to do an article
"before its time". I think it's suppos-
ed to rain every day and be hot and
muggy and dogs are supposed to bark
at funny times and the flies are bad
when you're into dog days. I don't
think it's rained enough for Dan


Rather or some other government
leader to give us the official word that
dog days are here again. Maybe dog
days start on August the 19th each
year and no one has ever bothered to
tell me. I don't know. Listen, I just do
an annual story on dog days, I have
never claimed to have any idea as to
what they actually are.
Kuwaiti oil tankers come to mind
because I've heard so much about
them in the past week or so. This
arouses my interest because up until

the aforementioned week or so, I'd
never heard of a Kuwaiti oil tanker.
Shucks, let's be honest, if you'd a' ask-

southern region of the New Hebrides
Islands. I know one thing. It wasn't on

the truth was known she took it too

Listen, a country is not a country
unless it's on Mrs. Paschal's map.
I know this oil stuff is important. I
hope it's important enough for us to be
over there. And I pray there's no trou-
ble. But with that Khomeini guy runn-
ing things in Iran you can be sure that
they're not going to act rationally. I
also want to see Great Britain and
France get more involved. They use
oil in Paris too,, don't they?
I'm not sure why all of a sudden
oil tankers need big time protection in
the Persian Gulf. I've got this idea it
has something to do with the war bet-
ween Iraq and Iran. Boys, those folks
have a hatred for each other that we
can't understand. You're not going to
win if you're trying to walk a tight
rope between those two. Hey listen, a
thought just occurred to me. Do you
reckon Kuwait is giving us a price

(Continued on Page 3)


Last week, The Tallahas-
see Democrat sang the praises
of the scalloping here in St.
Joseph Bay and stressed the
ease with which these tasty
morsels could be taken.
Although it's a matter of
opinion concerning the ease
with which the shell fish can
be harvested and cleaned, the
scallops of St. Joseph Bay
have become a loosely guard-
ed secret in this part of
Florida. Each and every day,
they attract people from
everywhere to try their luck at
collecting a mess of the tasty
tidbits.
The Democrat article
pointed out that scalloping
was available from Cedar Key
to Pensacola, but that the best
was to be found in St. Joseph


Bay.
This reputation is spread-
ing fast. Just recently we had
joined friends who were visit-
ing in Panama City for an
evening and dinner in one of
the nicer restaurants over
there. When the waiter found
out we were from Port St. Joe,
he quipped, "Oh, you are! I do
my scalloping in St. Joseph
Bay!"
People over here would
dearly love to keep the scal-
lops as their own private
secret and harvest them at
their leisure, but we're afraid
the secret has leaked out to the
point where it is now one of our
tourist attractions rather than
one of our unique edible sea
animals peculiar to our area
and our tables.


It's Better to Have Tried


Our Navy is in the Persian
Gulf and Iran has threatened
the entire world that they are
going to control the body of
water to their personal bene-
fit.
We don't know how the
Iranians can be so brash as to
think they can carry out their
threat with any immunity, nor
do we see how the rest of the
world can stand by and let
them have any degree of
success at doing so.
American ships are pa-


trolling the Gulf to keep it safe
for shipping to countries who
are our economic enemies,
our unfair competition, our
so-called allies who aren't
willing to risk what it takes to
keep the Gulf open.
Since our nation has a
sense of responsibility to the
world, we are doing this. We
think it better that we try and
upset Iran's plan and face
derision for having tried than
to not try and face derision for
having backed down.


Bathing Suits Seem Designed to Do More Than Just Pique Imagination


IT SEEMS I have missed the
television program of the year.
I sat down at Rotary Club last
Thursday, intent on enjoying my meal
and anticipating the program which
was going to be brought by Woody
Miley of the Apalachicola Estaurine
Reserve area and everything was
going along smooth. The fried chicken
was just right, the corn nuggets were
golden brown and delicious, the rice
was nice and flaky with no two kernels
sticking together. The turnip greens
were done just right to compliment a
'piece of cornbread.
Then, right in the middle of
enjoying my meal, Bill Wood and
Wendell Campbell, sitting across the
table from me, starting telling
preacher Dave Fernandez about THE
television show ... the one I missed.
It was the show on a recent
Sunday afternoon where they did a
visual story on the bathing suits of the
world and the newest in swimming
fashions.
Both Bill and Wendell said it was
the first Sunday afternoon TV show
they had sat through in many a moon


without dozing off.
It must have been a hum-dinger!
BEING AN EXPERT on bathing
suits doesn't take a whole lot of


ETA


this modern age.
Bill and Wendell thought so, too,
and were confessing to brother Dave
they had sinned in their hearts when
they saw that bathing suit special on


locale of the winning suit, it was from
Rio.
BILL AND WENDELL began to
get my input to their conversation


OIN SHRDLU
I By: Wesley R. Ramsey


imagination any more. All the "imag-
ination" has been taken out of bathing
suit gazing.
I remember back when I was just
a boy, the preacher over at the First
Baptist Church used to tell us kids it
was a sin to indulge in mixed bathing.
He might have been right, I don't
know. I do know that today, he might
even get a few sinners to agree with
him, considering the bathing suits of


Bill claimed the suits were a bit
skimpy, but toughed it out to the bitter
end of the show, "just to see if
anybody would dare come up with a
suit containing less fabric than the one
before".
Bill declared the tiniest tiny
bathing suit-all worn by young
shapely females-was the one from
Brazil. To more definitely pinpoint the


then. Bill said he didn't see how
anyone could come up with a fashion
idea like that and call it anything but a
shoestring.
Wendell, who knows less about
fashion than he evidently knows about
golf (after last week's column expos-
ed him on this point) claimed he knew
a girl in a greek fraternity back in
college who had a bathing suit
skimpier than the Rio model, but she


wore it only in her bath tub. I
haven't figured out how he knew she
owned such a suit.
I hadn't seen the show they were
discussing, but I, was able to verify,
from first hand inspection, that the
Rio suit is, in actual practice, worn on
the beaches of Rio by a few young
ladies who fit the description given of
the TV show and many more who are,
how can you say it delicately-plump!
Brother Dave seemed to be at a
loss as to just how to join in this
conversation, so he just listened,
hummed a few times, did a um-um! in
a vital pause or two and gave a sigh
which said, "what is this world
coming to?"
If the bathing suits of today are
any indication, the world is coming to
a point where sweet young things who
go prancing around in modern bathing
suits are going to be claiming, in
chorus, "I'm cold!"

OF COURSE, all the brief briefs
worn at the beach, presumably,
aren't in Rio, or Cannes, or St. Tropitz


or the Black Sea.
It's just a common swim suit
today, if it is only cut up above the hip
bone and only half the derriere hangs
out at any given point in either time or
space.
The other day, I came across an
advertisement for female swim suits
in an area daily paper which would
make 10 Rio swim suits, but which
would still turn aly male head were a
female person who could fit into said
suit, to parade by on the beach,
wearing it.
The "creation" was nothing more
than a man's brief undershirt, which
was scalloped off around the bottom
at about the vicinity of the navel. that
was the bottom. Beyond that point,
there was nothing but suntan.
The advertisement showed only a
back view of the suit, so I couldn't
positively say the front side contained
more or less than the back.
The advertisement identified the
garment as a "ladies' swim suit". I
know very few "ladies" who would be
caught dead-or alive-in it.

PHANTRY
by Wendell Campbell



A Few Old Friends
NEXT TO GOD and immediate family, friendship is the most
important relationship to me. I maintain that a person is extremely lucky
if he-she can count their real, honest-to-goodness, true friends and use all
the fingers on one hand. Most people will have three fingers left over. I
have four and one-half fingers on my left hand. I'm right handed.
It seems that the older one gets, the fewer friends he or she has. I
know this is true because some friends move away, some just become
distant and, unfortunately, some friends are killed or just die.
I hope I'm as good a friend as some people have been to me. It
worries me that I might not be. I don't lay awake at night worrying about
it but I do have some wonderful friends.
Why, when I was in college one of my good friends helped me out of a
real bind one night. I had a night class and the professor gave us a
surprise test just before we were to be dismissed. I could tell it was going
to be hard and take some time to complete.
I was supposed to go over to my girlfriend's apartment right after
class, but since I had the test I asked my good friend, Josh, if he would go
by and tell her I wouldn't be there.
He went by all right! He was still there when I arrived about eleven
thirty. I peeped through the front door and there he was, singing love
songs to my sweetheart and holding her precious little hand. I don't know
what else they had been doing but she didn't have any lipstick on and she
was one who wouldn't be caught on a bear hunt without lipstick on.
What a pal!
ANOTHER FRIEND OF MINE was not too good a friend to his wife
and children. One night he didn't come home for dinner, so, about eight
o'clock, his wife and children had dinner without him.
When he wasn't home at eleven, she went to bed and to sleep.
About five o'clock the next morning he came creeping from an all
night poker game. He was about to lay down on the couch when he heard
his wife coming down the hall.
He immediately put a big smile on his face, tried to stand erect and
said, "Mornin', Hon."
"Don't you good morning me," she screamed. "Where have you been
until this time in the morning?"
"Settle down, Hon," he said in a calm and even voice, "and let me
explain. I got home about eleven thirty and you and the kids were asleep
so I walked out back and decided to rest on the back porch and get some
fresh air. I sat down in that old recliner of mine on the back porch and fell
asleep and just a few minutes ago woke up."
"You are the biggest liar I have ever seen," she shouted at him, "I
threw that old recliner away two weeks ago!"
Without hesitating and looking her right in the eye, he replied firmly,
"Well, that's my story and I'm sticking to it!".
He was a good poker player but not much in the family department.
Friends like those are hard to find. I doubt I could stand many more
like them.

moral, ethical or promised represen-

slightly bent, abused or misused.
As a long time boater and voter, I
am not anti-canal but I do remember
last year when one of the councilmen
now voting to take a $9,000.00 loan
from the city water department for a
canal follow-up study proposed the
city go in debt for $60,000.00 to hire a
lobbyist to fight for his canal project.
The remarkable thing about this logic
and reasoning was the guarantee of no
guarantee by either the councilman or
lobbyist of any return of anything.
The Mayor is playing with a
stacked deck, could use and needs
support. I only know him on sight so
no favor is involved. I just know logic,
reason and common. sense when it is
seen and heard the same way I know
morals, ethics and belief in a higher

Mexico Beach would seem at the poll
in the November councilman race
when the people get one small chance
to change things. Choices are ex-
tremely limited. An ineffective contin-

gard for the total population or the
chance to seat another who might at
least listen to the people before
making their decision for them.
Personally, I will vote for such a

The Commission hadn't taken metal detectors, or the hiring of a

out they still had two more hearings scheduled before final adoption,

The Commission gave the indication they are not going to rush into the
business of making the Gulf County Courthouse an armed camp, but they
were going to address the matter of security for the people who worked
there every day.

Social Security Provides


Benefits for All Ages


Many people equate Social Secur-
ity with the elderly and retirement,
but the program actually provides
benefits for people of all- ages.
Retirement may seem a long way off
in the eyes of young people, but
monthly retirement checks are only
one of a package of benefits available
to anyone who works long enough in
Social Security covered employ-
ment.
Disability insurance, for exam-
ple, is an important feature of the
Social Security program for young
workers. It provides benefits to
workers who are so severely disabled
that there is reason to believe they
will be unable to return to work for at

Center on Sunday, August 16.


least a year. In such cases, a worker
can start receiving monthly payments
after an initial 5-month waiting
period. And the benefits are payable
at any time before age 65.
These benefits will continue for as
long as the person remains disabled.
Moreover, a person who received
disability benefits for 24 months
becomes eligible for Medicare, which
can help meet the costs of health care.
If a married worker becomes
disabled, monthly payments can also
be made to the spouse and children.
And if the person should die, survivors
insurance will help protect the family
through the payment of monthly
benefits to the children and surviving
spouse, if he or she is caring for an
eligible child. If there are no children,
the surviving spouse can receive
payments at age 60 (50 if disabled).
These features are all in addition
to the retirement benefits that many
people think of as comprising the
entire Social Security package. But
Social Security is more much more.

PSJ Biology Teacher Chosen for Workshop


Rick Williams, right, is shown with Dr. John Dorsey, conducting an ex-
periment in flow injection analysis techniques.


Rick Williams, a biology teacher
at Port St. Joe High School, was one of
only seven instructors chosen from
throughout the state to participate in
a Honors Chemistry workshop at the
University of Florida this summer.
The workshop was for a five week
period, June 26 July 31, and was
funded by the National Science Foun-
dation.
The seven teachers were chosen
based upon the evaluation of the many
applications received for the course.
The workshop was directed by Dr.
Gardiner Myers, of the chemistry
department of the University of
Florida.
Included in the workshop was lec-
tures, demonstrations, lab ex-
periences and guest lectures in
physical, organic, inorganic,
analytical chemistry and
biochemistry during the mornings.
Each afternoon and evening the par-


ticipants had "hands-on" experience
in an on-going research project, under
the direction of a professor.
Mr. Williams worked with Dr.
John Dorsey in his interest in improv-
ing the efficiencies of chemical reac-
tions in order that flow injection
analysis techniques can be better ap-
plied to experiments. Mr. Williams
said, "It was an honor to be accepted
and participate in this workshop. It
was a hard, but rewarding ex-
perience. Since science is a dynamic,
rapidly expanding field, and new con-
clusions are found every day, par-
ticipation in workshops such as these
are essential to remain current in the
field. Also, to afford our students the
best possible education, which is what
they deserve."
Williams received six hours of
graduate credit in chemistry for his
participation.

Kids See

Educational

Programs
There has been a lot going on
lately at Kids Instructional Day
Service. The children have been
participating in various educational
programs and field trips.
\ Recently the preschool depart-
ment was paid a visit by a break
dancing robot. Simon, the robot,
presented an educational program on
drug abuse prevention. The program
involved videos, activities and a song
and dance by Simon himself. The
children were thrilled with the
.presentation.
As part of an educational unit on
insects. The After School Program
enjoyed a visit from Wendell Camp-
bell recently. Campbell discussed a
variety of insects found in and around
the home with the children. The
students found the discussion very
informative. Campbell also treated
the children to songs and guitar
music.
Both the after school program and
the preschool department at K.I.D.S.
will be participating in an awards
program Friday, August 14 at 10:30
a.m. Several children will be "gradu-
ating" from both groups and awards
will be given to several of the
children.

Preparing Kids for School for


Their First Time


by: Edwin R. Ailes, M.S.
Soon the school bells will be
ringing again and young children will
enter the classroom for the first time
in their lives. The first day of school is
a major step in every child's life. The
parent's understanding of this critical
step in development is important to
the child's emotional health and
future attitude toward school. The
child's attitude or "how he feels about
school" will determine how hard he
will try and, to a large extent, how
well he will learn.
Every day parents teach their
children skills and attitudes that are
necessary for school. However, just
before the child begins school, he or
she needs some extra special prepar-
ation to make this important step a
positive one. Whether the child
expresses eagerness or reluctance to
start school, every child will feel a
mixture of anxiety, fear, worry, and
excitement about the event. After all,
this is the child's first major separ-
ation from the security of the home to
take a step into the outside world of
new experiences.
The parent should begin to
prepare the child for school by
providing support and assistance in
understanding of his feelings. The
parent should help the child to
understand that his feelings are a
"normal" part of the process. Chil-
dren may feel abandoned, alone,
scared of the new environment, and
afraid they won't fit in or be able to
perform as expected. The parent
should answer all of the child's
questions honestly and in detail. For


Happy 21st
Birthday

Love,
Daddy & Family


example, the child needs to know the
length of the school day, the general
classroom routine, the route to the
school and the lunchroom procedures.
As the parent clarifies the child's
questions .through casual convers-
ation, the child will start to develop
the self-confidence needed to adjust
and feel positive about the event.
Encouraging this self-confidence will
help the child to like school and
therefore to like learning.
Parents can build further on this
"healthy attitude" by emphasizing
the importance of the event and by
showing enthusiasm for the school
experience. For example, taking the
child to visit the school and classroom
in advance is extremely important
and will help. The parent may also
want to walk or ride with the child on
the route to school. When visiting the
school in advance, the parent should
point out different things in the
classroom; help the child find the way
to the bathroom; show the child the
lunchroom, playground, principal's
office, and simply wander the school
halls. The child should also meet the
teacher, principal, and possibly some
of the other available school person-
nel. Before leaving, the parent may
want to take a picture of the child at
school to emphasize the importance of
the event. At home, the parent can
talk with the child about what they
saw; they can draw pictures together
of the school; and they can talk
further about what the child will do in
school. Parents will want to find out
what the child expects, clear up
misconceptions about such things as
how long it takes to read, discuss
school rules, and describe various
activities. Parents can share their
own positive experiences with school

dren singing along with others.
Everyone is cordially invited to
attend the activities.


and can show the child how they have
learned skills in school that have been
useful to them.
As the first day approaches, the
parent can prepare the child by
creating a "normal routine" around
the home. School bedtimes should be
established. The parent should treat
going to school as a normal part of life
and should also avoid comparing the
child's experiences to that of brothers,
sisters, or friends. Parents need not
argue the issue of school attendance
with the child as they can simply
explain that school is required by law.
When the day to start school
finally arrives, parents should resist
their urges to "protect" the child and
attempt to support and help the child
to enter the world that they must
encounter. Parents should be direct.
They should say "goodbye" to the
child and allow the child to board the
bus alone or enter school alone. If the
I child cries, the parent should try not
to overreact as most tears will quickly
disappear. Firmness, patience, and
reassurance from the parents will
assist the child in feeling confident
and comfortable away from home. As
parents become involved in school
activities and as the parent empha-
sizes the positive aspects of the child's
performance, the developmental pro-
dess for the child will continue
unfolding in an emotionally healthy
manner so that school can become the
s gnificant and successful foundation
for confronting life's experiences.

Crepe Myrtle: Easy to Grow and Has A Long Blooming Period


A Favorite Flowering Shrub


by Roy Lee Carter
County Extenslon-Agent
The crepe myrtle is one of the
most rewarding small trees or large
shrubs for the landscape. Its ease of
propagation, long blooming period
Sand ability to grow under nearly every
soil condition makes the crepe myrtle
a widely used and greatly admired
ornamental.
The flowering season for crepe
myrtle begins in June or July, and
continues until fall. Each long cluster
of flowers is composed of hundreds of
one to two inch red, pink, white,
lavender, or purple flowers. Leaves
are often garnet tinged in the spring,
glossy dark green in the summer, and
dull to intense yellow, orange or red in
the autumn. When the leaves fall in
the winter, the crepe myrtle becomes
a living sculpture. The trunk and
branches have an attractively gnarl-
ed, twisted character with smooth
bark varying in color from light straw
to rich deep brown. Patches of bark
flake off in early summer to reveal
new bark ranging in color from light


Which Thrives In Almost Any Soil Condition In


the residential landscape. Single
trunked or multi trunked specimens
make ideal small shade trees for a
sunny deck, terrace, or entrance
walkway. Multi trunked plants can be
used as a visual barrier, a specimen
plant in the garden, or a dominant
landscape feature when planted sin-
gly or in groups. Semi-dwarf and
dwarf tyles are 'suitable for found-
ation plantings, use in containers, or
even as larger groundcovers. Occa-
sional pruning may be required to
maintain desired size and form.
Background plantings of evergreen
shrubs or trees may be employed to
further emphasize the floral spectacle
of crepe myrtle. Crepe myrtle can be
used to create an "alley" in' a large
garden area. Alleys are usually long


walkways where the plants are
spaced so their canopies touch and
enclose the pathway. There is even a
patented miniature weeping form
good for use as a bonsai plant or in
hanging baskets.
Crepe myrtles are available in
many flower colors and plant heights.
Plants height is categorized as dwarf
(less than 3 feet), semi-dwarf (3 to 6
feet), medium, (6 to 12 feet) and tall
(greater than 12 feet).
Crepe myrtle tolerates a wide
range of soil conditions,. but grows
best in a heavy loam that is slightly
acidic (pH 5.0 to 6.5). Nutrient
requirements are minimal; high
fertility leaves. produce excessive
vegetative growth and fewer flower
panicles. Applications of 8-8-8 or


10-10-10 fertilizer in early spring at the
rate of 1 to 2 pounds per 100 square
feet of planting bed may be beneficial
to establish plants, especially those
growing in retaining soil moisture and
minimizing soil temperature fluctu-
ations during the summer.
Heavy pruning must be done each
year, if large specimen type blooms
are desired. However, one of the most
fascinating aspects of the crepe
myrtle is its unusual plant form. When
the form is destroyed by severe
pruning, then the blooms will be all
that remains for one to enjoy. By a
selective method of pruning, the
unusual sculptured form, flowers and
colorful foliage makes it a plant with
year round charm.
Frequently crepe myrtle is at-


rthwest Florida
tacked by aphids and white flies.
Aphids are small green colored
lice-like insects that suck the sap and
cause small malformed leaves. Tie
white fly and aphids excrete a
honeydew material on which a black
fungus (sooty mold lives). Both
aphids and white flies can be
controlled by spraying with an
appropriate insecticide.
Powdery mildew is a common
disease of crepe myrtle, especially
when it is grown in damp shaded
areas. This fungus disease causes the
plants to be unsightly, but also can
cause some defoliation and actual
death of severely infested stems.
Control can be achieved by spraying
with an appropriate fungicide or
planting resistant cultivars.

Apalachicola Estuary

Highly Productive


System Miley


In case you didn't know, either:
an estuary is a place where fresh and
salt water mix. Woody Miley, mana-
ger of the Apalachicola River and Bay
National Estaurine Reserve defined
this term to the Rotary Club last
Thursday at their regular meeting.
Along with his definition, he also told
of some of the reasons for the Reserve
and what it is composed of.
Miley said the Reserve, here in
Gulf and Franklin County, is the
largest of some 30 estaurine reserves
in the nation and is jointly managed
by the federal, state and local
government entities. The reserve,
which covers much of the 107 miles of
the Apalachicola River valley, covers
some 193,758. acres and gathers
drainage water from approximately
19,800square miles, all the way to the
foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains
in North Georgia. *
The Reserve is largely respon-

Georgia and at the same time protect
the quality of the water which
eventually spills into Apalachicola
Bay.
Miley said the marshes, wood-
lands and flood plains along the river
are the food source for the seafood
industry in Apalachicola bay.
"This food source is as fertile and
as productive, acre for acre, as the
most fertile corn field in the United
States", Miley declared. "It supports
the largest per acre harvestrof seafood
anywhere in the United States". Miley
said that although Chesapeake Bay is
the source of the most poundage of
seafood harvested hii the United
States, Apalachicola .Bay: harvests
more pounds per acre than even
Chesapeake Bay.
Miley said the records show
Apalachicola Bay harvested six and a
half million pounds of oyster meat in
its last full year of pi'duction prior to


the hurricane which damaged it
temporarily. In addition, the bay
provided five and a half million
pounds of'shrimp the same year, as
well as a sizeable harvest of fin fish,
blue crabs, scallops, etc.
Miley pointed out that there are
only about 7,000 acres of producing
oyster beds in the bay, but that
changing techniques may increase
this acreage dramatically in the next
few years.
In addition to the monetary
returns from the bay, the reserve
manager said the bay and its marshes
support over 1,200 species of plants,
54 species of mammals, 284 species of
birds and is the breeding ground for 99
species of birds. "This is a productive
area of extreme importance not only
to Florida, but to the entire Gulf
Coast", Miley said.
Miley said the purpose of his
organization is not to block develop-
ment but to -c xiaSn
deg oRment. al

speaker said.

Safe Sex; Popular Subject But An Elusive Reality


It Is Part of A Lifelong, Faithful Monogamous Relationship


Safe sex is a term we have all
, become accustomed to hearing. It is
the subject of this article, but first
let's consider the background that
produced this term.
We live in an age that has gone to
greui .~,igth to
make God a hu-
man being. Com-
median George
Burns is a spokes-
man for this UN D
concept and he
has eloquently by the Rev. Jei
portrayed both
God and Satan
as humans in popular movies. This is
a small part of the New Age theology
(currently being spoofed in the
Doonesbury cartoon series). In New
Age theology God bumbles through
eternity with whimsical unpredictabi-
lity. He has no absolute standards and
there is something allusive or decep-
tive about reality. The next logical
step is to say that, since God is human
we must be divine. As divinities we
only need to look within ourselves to
see truth and reality.
This new American contribution
to theology sees run of the mill
Christianity as being as valid as all
the other world religions. That is
unless you happen to believe that the
ten commandments, the words of
Jesus, and the teachings of the
Apostles are unchanging and eternal-
ly valid., i
This new religion of the people is
really a composite of many other
religious views that have been around
all the time. Unfortunately it goes
unrecognized by the naive and the
misinstructed. Often the New Age
ideas are integrated into Christianity
by those who should know better.
The New Age tells us not to break


the rules and laws that keep order and
hold things together unless by
breaking them some subjective high-
or good is served.
Using these flexible standards -we
can say: Washington bureaucrats


TOWARD

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


should never lie to the president
unless the lie protects him fron
making some embarrassing political
decision. Or, babies should not be
aborted, unless the mother doesn'
want the child to be born, etc.
When we apply this ethic to sex we
created a liberality which astounds
even the most broad-minded among
us. A "blank check" policy toward
human sexuality has become fully
established in America.
A major step toward the accept-
ance of free sex was accomplished in
the sixties when Joseph Fletcher
*wrote his book, Situational Ethics. In
this work he took an old axiom from a
form of Jesuit ethics called casuistic
ethics in which each case was decided
on its own merit. Their axiom was
finis sanctificat media, or the end
justifies the means.
Using this premise Fletcher said,
"Whether any form of sex (hetero,
homo, or auto) is good or evil depends
on whether love is fully served."
In this system love is defined as
whatever hurts the least number of
people at the moment, or whatever
brings the most satisfaction to the

'participants at the time.
The acceptance of this theory by
so many people has pulled out all the
stops as far as human sexual behavior
is concerned.
According to this premise, the
whore is fulfilling the love ethic
because she is liberating the inhibi-
tions of young men. The extramarital
affair is beneficial because it enhan-
ces marital love. Premarital sex is
helpful because it releases the stress
of heavy romantic situations. Homo-
sexuality is no aberration, it is only an
alternate lifestyle, etc.
In my opinion, the philosophy of
life outlined above is responsible for
creating our new vocabulary term -
safe sex.
In truth, safe sex is a misnomer. -
Sexual activity outside marriage, like
the relativism that created the term,
is only relatively safe. For instance, it
has been shown that many diseases,
genital nerpes, etc., are transmitted
even when a condom is used.
The sexual revolution has actual-
ly brought about an explosion of
general diseases. New forms are
being discovered and added to the
impressive list each year.
When we humanize God and make
divinities of humans we begin to look
inwardly to find our value systems. As
we look deeply into human nature we


find sensuality, sentimentality and
situational ethics.
If we look to the word of God for
ultimate truth, we will not find the
ethical system that has doomed whole
generations to moral failure. We will
not uncover a race of people searching
diligently for safe sex. But we will be
lifted up above the sensuality that
dominates the world.
By constantly searching God's
word we find objective truth, sanity,
health, and true gratification of all our
needs.
Among other things we will find
that safe sex is inherent to lifelong,
faithfully monogamous relations. Any
standard other than this is like the
New Age theology, only relatively
safe.
