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

Donnie Swims the Bay

Labor Day Weekend

Stunt Takes Five Hours

"Have I raised a crazy son?"
Mrs. Dave Maddox remarked to her
son, Donnie, as they sat on the porch
drinking their breakfast coffee three
weeks ago, when he revealed that he
was going to swim across St. Joseph
Bay as a fund raiser for the MD fund
drive over the Labor Day week end.
"I told my mother that morning, I
had dreamed I had swam across the
Bay and so I decided to give it a try",
* Maddox said last week.
After that early morning conver-
sation with his mother, Donnie then
contacted the Jaycees and told them
of his idea and asked for their
sponsorship, which they readily
agreed to give.
Maddox then started training by
swimming for long distances each day
to get accustomed to the long periods
in the water and the Jaycees started
planning to do something they had
never done before in support of
Donnie attempting something he had
never done before. As a matter of fact
nobody has swum across St. Joseph
Bay before, so Donnie's accomplish-
ment Sunday morning should prob-
ably be an item for the Guinness book
of world records.
The swim was planned for Labor
Day week end on the first day to come
up when the bay was reasonably calm
and the weather cooperated.
Saturday, Donnie and his support
team took a look at the choppy bay
and the threatening clouds and said,
"Not today!"
Sunday morning, the team met at
the boat basin at the west end of Fifth
Street, took a look at the clear skies
and the smooth bay and said, "Let's
A group of three boats, took off,
ferrying- Donnie across the bay' to
S Eagle Harbor to start the swim. In
Eagle Harbor, at St. Joseph State
Park on the Peninsula, Donnie was
coated in petrole m jelly to ward off
jelly fish stings and slid into the water
at 8:15, headed for the City Pier, some
six miles to the east.
Piloting the three support boats

were Greg Burch, Scott Cunningham
and Jake Tankersley, members of the
Jaycees. A boat was placed on each
side of Maddox and the third boat
followed behind to aid him in case of
"There was no trouble at all",
Maddox said after the swim ended. "I
ran into a few jelly fish, but none
stung me. Actually, other than being
tiring, it was a very uneventful
swim". The team of boats put out
several buoy markers on the trip
across the bay to guide them and the
swimmer in a straight line across the
bay, but Maddox said a changing tide
washed all but two or three of them
away. "That idea didn't work", he
said, "but we got along very nicely
without them".
Maddox said he stopped to rest in
the water five or six times on his
journey and drank a mixture of
Gatorade and honey for energy. "I
don't want another drink of Gatorade
for a while after that experience",
Maddox said.
The adventurer said he rested
various muscles of his body by
swimming in different positions; on
his back, on his side, with his feet,
with his hands and at times a
combination of all three. "I never got
really tired until I got about two miles
from the Pier, but I was determined
by that time not to give up", he said.
Expecting to be in the water about
seven hours in his attempt, Maddox
surprised everyone, including him-
self, when he reached the pier at 1:00
p.m., giving him a time of four hours
and 45 minutes in his trip. "I estimate
I was actually swimming about three
hours and 45 minutes of that time",
Maddox said.
Although the project was thought
up and put together ifi haste, the stunt
still raised over $1,000 for the MD
drive, which also featured the Jerry
Lewis Telethon during the Labor Day
week end. "We still don't have all the
pledges and sponsorships in, but it
was a good stunt and I'm glad I could
participate in it", Maddox said.

Donnie Maddox gives the thumbs up for victory sign as he climbs from the
waters of St. Joseph Bay Sunday after spending nearly five hours swimming
across the bay.

Labor Day Holiday Was Safe Time for
Those In Gulf; No Injuries Reported
While the state of Florida was being extra careful and recording only
11 of an estimated 30 highway fatalities for the Labor Day week end, Gulf
....,ounty,playedit safgap recQrd ed no injuries during the long holiday
period, which traditionally eids the s~mney jay season.
Gulf County had just had three to die on its highways within a three
week period prior to Labor Day, but didn't even record a scratched fender
during the danger period proclaimed by the Florida Highway Patrol.
Here in the county, law enforcement officials were out in full force
during the entire holiday period and put on a visible profile to discourage
dangerous driving practices throughout the county.

$17,000 Pot Bust Made Tuesday

Gulf County Sheriff's Department
confiscated an estimated $17,000
worth of marijuana late Tuesday
afternoon and arrested two Wewa-
hitchka men for possession and
Arrested were Kenneth Mitchell
Smith and Richard Earl Daniel who
were both charged with felony counts
of possession of more than 20 grams of
cannabis and distribution of the

Sheriff Al Harrison said the case
started to materialize at about 5:15
p.m, Tuesday, with a surveillance
operation at Dempsey's Bar at the
intersection of Highway 71 and
Overstreet Road.
During the surveillance a deal
was allegedly made to purchase a:
quantity of marijuana.
Both Smith and Daniel left the bar

and returned a short while later with
the substance. Both men were arrest-
ed immediately and a search warrant
was requested for Smith's home on
Old Transfer Road.
The Sheriff's Department went to
the home with their drug sniffing dog,
to make the search. Officers found
and confiscated eight one-pound bags
,of marijuana, two half pound bags and
two lids. They also confiscated a 1982

Datsoh 280Z sports car.
The two men were still in Gulf
County Jail Wednesday morning and&
were scheduled to appear before N
Judge David Tauriton yesterday after-
noon for arraignment.
Involved in the surveillance,
search and arrest were the Sheriff and
his deputies, Captain Jack Davilla,
Rick Pickron, Greg Cole,. Malcolm
Garrett, Andrew Gainer and State
Attorney assistant, Jim Buchanan.


Pick-up; Fees


to Alleviate Sky-Rocketing

Costs of Handling Garbage

The Gulf County Commission may
have found a way to crawl out of its
garbage pit of 'financial problems
Tuesday. All the Commissioners
expressed themselves as favoring a
method of charging a user fee
throughout the county for solid waste
disposal charges, when chairman
Billy Branch asked them to begin
thinking of some way the Commission
could solve the growing problem.
Commissioner Doug Birmingham
said, "Everybody should have to pay
for the service, although I don't have a
specific plan to offer yet. I am in favor
of spreading it (the cost) around".
Commissioner Nathan Peters,
Jr., said, "We need to have manda-
tory garbage pick-up throughout the
county at a fee. Only 35 percent of our
people pay ad valorem taxes and they
can't be expected to pay for garbage
disposal for the rest of us".
Branch called for the suggestions
in view of the fact Gulf County was
forced to increase millage for the
up-coming budget because of the
expense. of solid waste disposal
methods. A public hearing on that
proposed budget is scheduled to be
held Monday of next week at 7:00
p.m., in the Commission meeting
room to discuss a proposed 18 percent
increase in its budget.
Almost all of the increase is due to
solid waste disposal requirements by
the state of Florida.
.The Commission turned, down a
request from the U.S. Corps of
Engineers to give the county's ap-
proval for 10 resolutions passed
between 1948 and 1962, agreeing to
furnish dredge spoil areas along the
Apalachicola River in Gulf County.
Under the agreements, Gulf County
would purchase the spoil areas and
furnish them to the Corps to use in
their maintenance dredging of the
The Corps was specifically asking
for just over 200 acres in the vicinity of
Corley Slough and the Chipola Cut-off.
The request was received nearly a
month ago, but before action was
taken by the Board, attorney William
J. Rish was asked to research the
county's agreements with the Corps
before giving them a rubber stamp of
Rish reported the county had
started putting stipulations in their
agreements with the Corps in 1979 and
1980 and now the Corps wants
reaffirmation of the past agreements.
Doug Birmingham, who has long

opposed maintenance dredging on the
Apalachicola River suggested the
Commission give the Corps an answer
"anyone can understand. I suggest we
say 'no!' "
Birmingham went on to say, "We
really can't afford to buy them
easements any longer. We don't have
the money", he said.
In the meantime, Commissioner
Eldridge Money suggested the county
take a long, hard look at the idle
incinerator at Port St. Joe's Wastewa-

ter Treatment plant as a means of
disposing of Gulf County solid waste.
Sheriff Al Harrison said it ap-
pears as if recent steps by the
Commission to settle problems be-
tween beach drivers and property
owners at Cape San Blas was "easing
off". Harrison said he policed the
beach area during the Labor Day
holiday and found very few incidents
of recklessness. "Actually, there
wasn't much traffic on the beach", the
Sheriff said.
Commissioner Money suggested
the county look for access to the beach
for motor vehicles between the Stump
Hole and St. Joseph's State Park to
ease off demands for access over long
stretches of beach.
Looking for other means to ease
the problem even more, the County
will request the Department of
Natural Resources to officially estab-
lish a definite high water mark and
agreed to attempt to get permission to
stabilize a road to the beach on the old
Air Force property.
Sheriff Harrison said it was his
observation that the problem was
"pretty well solved". Attorney Rish
remarked that he spent the week end
on the beach and observed that
"drivers were courteous all week end.
I saw nobody threatened", he said.
In various other items of business,
the Commission:
-Received a report from admin-
istrative assistant Larry Wells that
bids would go out this week, seeking
prices for construction of a boat ramp
on their property at White City. Wells
said the ramp would be paid for with
boating improvement money collect-
ed and distributed by the State of
-Had a report from the Florida
Fire Marshall stating all violations in
the County Jail had been taken care

Dog" pose with a large quantity of marijuana confiscated

62-Year-Old Building Razed

Gulf County's last pre-World War II school house is
coming down, with the aid of a wrecking crew.
The building, the old Wewahitchka High School, is
being dismantled by the Ray Dickens Construction
Company after 62 years of serving part of the educational
needs of the county.
Built during the 1920's, the building was first occupied
in 1925, the year Gulf County was split off from Calhoun
County. At first, the old building served all 12 grades of
school in Wewahitchka. Along with an old two story brick

building in Port St. Joe, they were some of the first brick
buildings in the county.
In 1970, a new high school was completed in
Wewahitchka and the old building became the hub of an
elementary school center. Last school year, a new
elementary school was finished and the old building has
been standing vacant ever since.
The demolition will not include the entire complex
located on Highway 71. The gymnasium and wings and
rooms built in recent years will not be razed. They are still
being used by the school system.

It's been a while since the
people of Gulf and Calhoun
counties voted to have the
Dead Lakes Dam removed by
state authorities. Now, it
appears as if the removal will
actually get done if activities
by the Department of Envir-
onmental Regulation in the
past week are any indication.
The DER has already said
they favor removal of the dam
for environmental reasons.
They just had to back down on
their decision and hold public
hearings concerning their in-
tentions prior to carrying
them out.
There is no doubt that
time has not healed all wounds
in this matter. There is still a
corps of people who are
vociferously opposing the
dam's removal and another
group who is just as ada-
mant that it should be taken
The Dead Lakes dam
seemed to be an ill-fated
project from the very begin-
ning. If anything ever gave off
vibes that it was the wrong
thing to do in the first place, it
has been so with the Dead
Lakes dam.
The dam had hardly been
completed when it collapsed in
the middle. The dam wasn't
put in to begin with under
ordinary circumstances.
There was a lot of unusual
maneuvers in order to get
funding approved by the Leg-
Then, when it was found
out there was trouble with the
lake and vegetation started
choking it up, there was some

real grasping at straws.
Finally, a few dollars
were gotten together and a
little more arm twisting en-
gaged in, and a drawdown
structure was dreamed up and
introduced to the dam.
After the drawdown was
installed, lo and behold, it was.
even a jinx from the begin-
ning. It was found the thing
wasn't low enough in elevation
to drain the lakes as it was
designed to do.
The drawdown was built
as best it could be with the
little bit of money available.
Unfortunately, like the dam,
the drawdown just wasn't
furnished enough money to do
the job right.
So, really, 'the whole pro-
ject suffered tremendously
from the start. There was just
not enough money to do
anything as it should have
been done. As a consequence,
the whole project has caused
nothing but trouble to every-
one except those two or three
dozen who were satisfied
because it allowed them to
drive their boats up to their
private docks.
Unfortunately for them,
there was just not enough
people with docks, who voted,
to keep the dam in.
So, now, at long last, it will
be taken out and a lot of
money has been wasted over
the past 25 years. Perhaps,
one day, it, will be put back
again, but we hope it isn't even
mentioned, at least until there
is enough money available to
do the job right.



Doomed from

the Start

"Boys, it looks bad." Mr. Arlie C.
Berry who always looked serious -
looked even more so today. Mr. Berry
taught general science, physics and
chemistry. We had the general
science as ninth graders, physics in
the eleventh grade and now, as
seniors, we were about two weeks into
the chemistry. We had spent a good
part of our high school careers down
in Mr. Berry's room.
As a matter of fact one of the best
fights I ever saw took place right out-
side of Mr. Berry's window my junior
year. Betty Ann Blanks was dating or
trying to date Rollin Trull. Mr. Blanks
was a little opposed to this relation-
ship. I don't know if it was Rollin's
black leather jacket, his duck tail hair
cut or the big Harley-Davidson he
rode that Mr. Blanks didn't like. We
were doing that experiment where
you drop the ball of paper (light) and
the lead weight (heavy) to see which
one falls at the faster rate when I
glanced out the window. Mr. Blanks
and Rollin were toe-to-toe dukeing it
out right in the school parking lot.

Rollin was getting the better of it and
he hadn't even bothered to take off his
jacket. But that's another story.
"Chuck" had called me and John
Ingram in to show us his weather in-
struments. They weren't working.
Now, Mr Berry was in to this weather
stuff. He had a direction indicator and
a wind cup mounted on the top of the
science building and all kinds of wires
running down to the instrument panel
in his room. The speed indicator
needle was on zero and you could look
outside and the tops of the trees were
leaning over. It was pretty advanced
stuff for 1964 and Mr. Berry was proud
of it and on this day, quite worried
about it. He said that we were his best
students and could we fix it. I was
about to say that we didn't know
anything about weather stuff when
John spoke up, "We'll need to go up
top and we'll need Buddy Wiggleton to
help us."
Mr. Berry didn't mind us going on
the roof but he was concerned about
us taking Buddy anywhere around his
weather instruments. After John ex-

plained that Buddy was just going to
hold the ladder he let us go. As we
start up Mr. Berry is a'watching Bud-
dy closely, telling us to please be
careful and allowing as how he'd go
up himself if he were just a few years
John was looking at the wires and
I was a'spinning the wind cups. We
didn't have a clue about weather stuff.
We figured we could hang around on
top, miss the class anyway and then
go back and tell Mr. Berry we couldn't
fix it. Buddy strolled over, glanced at
the apparatus and said, "I believe the
set screw is loose."
Son of a gun. No wonder it didn't
work. The rod holding the cups and
the direction indicator wasn't firmly
Attached to the holder with all the
wires. We could tighten the set screw
and this job was over. We'd be back in
class. We set down and watched Mr.
Ratliff Pascall and his ag class pot
some plants as we discussed our situa-
tion. About bell time we took the set
screw out and carried the rod down to
Mr. Berry. We explained that we

Trying to Wriggle Out

Governor Bob Martinez
knows how our Dead Lakes
feels. He started out with such
hopes and promises, and now
he is literally choking to death
because of a situation he
didn't see down the road.
Governor Bob, has called
a special session of the
Legislature to get him out of
this no-win situation, but even
the call for a special session
has drawn him criticism.
Now, some are saying he
should have the courage of his
convictions and do what is
necessary to finance Florida's
Actually, we think the
people of Florida are going to
vote next March to let some of

these new-comers help pay for
the services their coming here
makes necessary, through
user fees.
Anybody who stops any-
where these days creates a
need for public services they
need not expect to be furnish-
ed "on the house", so to speak.
In the meantime, one of
the Legislators said the Gov-
ernor's decision to hold the
referendum "puts us right
back where we were in April"
before the tax was enacted.
We beg to disagree. Since
July, we have been paying
that extra sales tax and the
special session this month
isn't going to change that.

This Labor Day Was Considerably

I WAS A LITTLE reluctant to take
a trip down memory lane this week,
concerning Labor Days past for fear
of making them happen again.
But since we all made it through
the Lqbor Day week end without a
hurricane bearing down the Bay and
blasting the mainland here in Gulf
County, I guess it's safe to remind you
of where we all were two years ago
this past Monday.
I I was in Wewahitchka, along with
the rest of the family staying away
from Elena as best I could. In spite of
the time spent in Wewahitchka,
camping out with friends up there, I
still saw all I wanted to see of Elena
and her stiff winds and heavy rains.
I remember our church was
scheduled to have its annual Labor
Day picnic that day, but since Elena
struck with her second punch Sunday
afternoon late, I believe there was
only one who showed up for the picnic
the next morning.
That was really wanting to go to a
picnic bad, to turn out in the

aftermath of Elena with a basket of
fried chicken and banana pudding.

holidays. I noticed this year, I didn't
hear the word "hurricane" mentioned
for fear of conjuring up one of the
heavy blows.

to swim across St. Joseph Bay in a
fund raising stunt over the Labor Day
week end and he didn't even mention

Different fro
as much damage on Labor Day as
Kate did for us on another holiday-
Thanksgiving-just a little shy of
three months later.
Remember Kate? 'She came call-


adventuresome souls who has an
interest in doing something different.
Swimming the bay is something
different! But if Donnie had to swim it
in the kind of seas we had on Labor
Day two years ago, I'm afraid that
would be the last we would ever hear
of Donnie.
OF COURSE, ELENA didn't do us

ing just one week prior to Thanksgiv-
ing, two years ago...
It was an interesting holiday
season, two years ago!
On Labor Day, two years ago,
Elena swooped in and raked the whole
Gulf coast from here to Cedar Key,
taking a gander at the wonders of
Northwest Florida and adding a little
unique scenery all her own.

,m Two Years Ago

Elena and Kate were the first real
storms I had even gone through in
over 40 years of living here on the
Bay, but it was enough to do me. It'll
be all right if it's another 40 years
before a hurricane pays us a visit.
Actually, we have had other
storms do us almost as much damage
as did Elena and Kate, but none has
ever visited and blown so hard.
say we had the equivalent of another
Elena or Kate here at The Star last
week, so far as inconvenience goes.
Shirley, our ad guts machine
operator, had to be out of pocket
Tuesday afternoon and all day
Wednesday, letting a doctor poke
around on her, making a few tests and
so forth.
Somehow or other, the doctor had
to figure out the time span in which it
would be most inconvenient for
Shirley to be gone and scheduled her
for those hours.
When you take a key personnel

out of a small operation like our, it's
just about as devastating as a storm
such as a hurricane.
Another similarity was that there
was nothing wrong with Shirley. After
the hurricane is over and the rain
stops, it's business as usual, except
for the clean-up which is a necessity
after one has been visited by an Elena
or a Kate.
After Shirley's scare was dissi-
pated when those tests and examina-
tions turned up negative, it was just a
matter of getting down to the business
of cleaning up the loose ends left
hanging by her unplanned absence.
I'm sort of in hoping this week will
be one of those smooth affairs which
come along once in a while, where
everything works like it should and
everything gets done on time.
Maybe since we skipped the
hurricane, and Shirley is back on the
job, and the newsprint shipment
arrived before we ran out, this week
might just be one of those in which it's
a joy to be around.

could fix it but we'd had to go over to
Mr. Robertson's bicycle shop and
make some minor adjustments.
The next day Mr. Berry had ar-
ranged for us to get the school pickup
truck. Now the bicycle shop just hap-
pened to be located right behind Kee's
Service Station. We spent chemistry
class that day sitting on some up-
turned RC Cola cases drinking a root
beer and shooting the breeze with Mr.
Kee. We spent the next day's
chemistry hour in the same manner.
Chemistry was becoming one of my
favorite classes.
All good things have to come to an
end and it was the same with the
weather vane. We figured we'd rode
that horse about as long as we could.
We went in the next day, climbed up
on the, roof, stuck the rod back in the
slot, tightened the set screw and
started down. Mr. Berry met us
before we got to the ground. "You fix-
ed it boys. You fixed it!"
He shook our hands and patted us
on the backs. He was so excited. I
thought he was going to cry. I told you
he was into that weather stuff. He
stook us before the class and announc-
ed to them what a wonderful thing we
had done for the school. The class
wasn't as thrilled with the whole idea
as Mr. Berry was. I felt about two in-
ches tall. Last time I saw Mr. Berry
he was still talking about me fixing his
weather stuff. Thank God for those
teachers who care.

"Gang" Showers Are Out,
ANOTHER AMERICAN TRADITION is about to fall by the wayside.
"Gang" showers are on their way out!
For those of you who are not familiar with the term, "Gang Shower,"
as I was not, let me explain.
A "Gang Shower" is when a group of men or womqn, or boys and girls
share, at the same time, a mutual set of showers; one shower per body, of
course. Gang showers, as far as I know, are taken after a military
exercise, an athletic event such as football and baseball games and
practices, mud wrestling contests and other physical events.
During my athletic life we simply called it, "taking a shower."
To my knowledge, gang showers are not co-ed, except for some
occurences in larger cities after non-athletic events such as smoking,
sniffing and heavy drinking.
AS FAR AS I'M concerned, showering is the only way to bathe. The
last "sit-down" bath I had was in 1959 while visiting a friend I attended
college with in Mississippi. Their water was piped in from a nearby creek
and didn't produce enough pressure to give a shower. I still remember
seeing the dead skin off my feet floating around me as I washed my upper
Although I love a good shower, gang showers are not one of my
fondest ways to bathe.
APPARENTLY, SOME PARENTS in the St. Petersburg area share
my feelings, but to a much greater extent. They are protesting the school
board's policy ordering students to take "gang" showers after gym class
or athletic games, according to a news release I read last week.
One lady, a physician, said, "I think the whole thing is
Another parent was quoted as saying, "smelling bad, that's offensive
but so is forcing a child to take a shower."
Still another parent, another lady, stated, "I can't imagine that any
adult would cheerfully volunteer to take a gang shower. I don't think
children would, either. If anything, they would have a more profound
sense of modesty than adults."
One board member, it was reported, suggested if youngsters are
hesitant about group showers, they could wear bathing suits.
THERE IS NO ONE MORE modest than I am. I am probably the only
married man whose wife has never seen him in his underwear, much less
nude. Written records indicate that I am the only athlete who attended
Tate High School that showered his first time in full uniform. And it was a
football uniform.
If my memory serves me right, one of my older sisters told me once
that, although I wasn't born in a diaper, I did change my own after the
first year and until I was "potty-trained."
Modest as I am, I would rather take a "gang" shower with the Dallas
Cowboy's entire football team than go to a class after a workout without
one. And I don't care if the cheerleaders were in there, too!
AFTER MY INITIAL shower in high school didn't work out, I decided
to shower like all the rest of the guys. It didn't take long-about three.
months for everyone to forget I was there except for a nickname that has
been with me ever since.
The protesting parents in the St. Petersburg area didn't mention any
alternatives to their children showering. If they did, it wasn't in the
article I read. My advice would be to let their children take a shower and
not stink up the classrooms. Also, it wouldn't take their children long to
see how they measured up.
THAT'S ALL I'M going to say about "gang showers" and the next
person that calls me "Shorty" will get a punch in the ear!

In China, he braided his hair,
dressed in native clothing, and slept
with the beggars on the steps of a
Buddhist Temple. As he learned the
language, he started to convert the
street people to Christianity.
He became healthy and success-
ful. But he also started to see the
enormity of the task. So he returned to
,England where he found himself in
great demand as a salon speaker
among the wealthy.
Those who heard his story were
greatly moved and gave generously to
the mission. Soon, shiploads of
missionaries followed in Taylor's
footsteps. Taylor's dream that Christ
would be preached in the 12 inland
provinces of China was realized.
After his initial failure to get

Local Mill Is Spending $35

Million to Get Rid of Odor

Ever hear of a $35 million stick of
That's what St. Joe Forest
Products is spending to get rid of their
"mill odor", according to vice-presi-
dent of operations, Harold Quacken-
bush. The operations executive told
the Kiwanis Club Tuesday the local
paper mill has spent some $100 million
in modernization and improvements
during the past 15 years. "About a
third of this expenditure has been
spent solely to improve the environ-
ment. Those projects won't improve
St. Joe's business position or improve
production one dollar's worth."
Quackenbush said present sche-
dules would have the mill spending at
the same pace, for improvements for
at least the next five years.

"This present project is one of
those which doesn't improve our
market position one bit. All of the
improvements currently being made
are designed to get rid' of the smell
which has become so familiar with
paper mills". The speaker said the
local mill has been improving in this
area for several years and as a result
has a much less offensive odor than
most mills.
"The ironic thing about our
project is that none of the elements
which cause the smell are harmful to
humans or the environment. We could
allow them to continue as is on into the
future and nothing would be harmed.
The only harm would be the odor
which is offensive to some. Ironically,
the process we must go through to get

Wall Is Retiring
Charles Wall, above right, is congratulated on the eve of his retirement
from the Apalachicola Northern Railroad by Vice-President Tom Johnston
Friday of last week. Wall joined the railroad in 1962 as a hostler helper and
became assistant master mechanic in 1972. Later that same year, he was
promoted to master mechanic and is retiring from that position. He and his
wife, Mary, have been residents of Port St. Joe for 40 years.

rid of the odor does produce danger-
ous and explosive gases and chemi-
cals. The regulation agencies have
traded off with us, allowing us to
expend small amounts of a pollutant
to get rid of the odor, which is a
The vice-president said the im-
provements would also increase the
mill's use of water. "The treatment of
these gases will require more cooling
capacity and that means more water
use", he pointed out.
The speaker said the market
position of St. Joe is good. "We have
kept up with keeping our mill modern
and our stock ownership is not one
which would allow outside raids on the
company, so our position is pretty
firm today. We have weathered a
period of slim profits while we were
making production improvements,
but fortunately we were strong
enough, financially, to weather the
St. Joe Paper does one thing
hardly any other paper mill does and
that one thing is the item which has
kept it competitive through the past
few years. "We make perhaps a third
of the bleached linerboard produced
in the United States", Quackenbush
The mill officer went on to say,
"We do it better than anybody else
and we're turning out a product which
is tops in the market today. Other
mills won't gamble with it because it
costs too much money to get into a
specialized market. We gambled with
it a few years ago, and the gamble
has turned out well for us", he said.
Quackenbush was very optimistic
about the future of St. Joe Forest
Products in the paper producing
industry. He said many mills have
gone under, sold, or been taken over in
the past few years because they have
not kept up with production technol-
ogy. He stressed that the local mill did
what it did in a way that will make a
profit. Making a profit is what keeps
anyone in business.

The Sharks begin their second

Friday night, as they host the
Wewahitchka Gators at Shark Sta-
The Sharks will be an unknown
quantity again this year, according to
Lanford, as they continue to re-build
their state championship squad of
three years ago.
"We still have a large number of
players who have never played in
competition football before", Lanford
said. "Not only do we have a lot of
players with little to no experience,
we also have a lot of very young kids
on our team which should give us a
f solid future, but makes for an
apprehensive present".
Lanford stated last week the team
is beginning to jell into a solid force
but desperately needs to win some
games "to instill that will to win in
them. They're not used to winning.
Most of them have never played 'ona '
t winning team and'that one ingredient

Open 1(

is very essential for any success in our
Lanford said one of the ingred-
ients the young team needs is public
support. "We'll begin building this up
with a giant city-wide pep rally
Thursday night in the stadium park-
ing lot. The band will be there, the
cheerleaders and the players in a big
rally beginning at 7:00 p.m."
Lanford said the schedule this
year features several area teams
which will re-build old rivalries "and
help our home attendance, thus
building public support", he said.
The team has had long-standing
rivalries with Apalachicola, Wewa-
hitchka, Bonifay, Blountstown, Flor-
ida High and Marianna. "All of these
teams are on our schedule this year
and should provide a public interest in
the games."
Port St. Joe will be in a district
with Blountstown, Monticello, Havana--
and Florida High this year.

) Game Season at Home Friday

Another old rival, Wakulla Coun-
ty, has moved up in the ratings and is
now in another class.
The Sharks will play five home
games this year, and five on the road.
An open date on October 23 will give a
rest break about mid-season, giving
the Sharks time to gather up their
forces to host Monticello on October
All home games will be played at
8:00 p.m., with two away games
starting at 8:30 local time, in
Pensacola and at Rutherford.
Season tickets are now on sale at

Gators Will be Trying to Retain Gulf Trophy

Wewahitchka's Gators will be
taking their games one at a time this
year, in a re-building year for the
Gators. As a result of their strategy,
their main object in Friday night's
opener here in Port St. Joe will be
maintaining possession of the Gulf
County Trophy for the second year in
a row. "We've never had the trophy
for two years running", head coach
Dennis Kizziah said. "We want to
keep it for a second year, bad!" the
coach said.
Kizziah said his team this year
will have some of the same problems
the Sharks are having with fielding a
young and inexperienced team. "We
have 13 seniors on the squad", he said,
"but very few of them have much
game experience. We lost most of our

regular starters from last year. We
have one regular lineman back".
The Gator coach was uncertain
the first of this week which of his
athletes .would start in Friday night's
season opener against the Sharks but
said his team will be scratching for
that county trophy, whoever goes on
the field.
Kizziah's teams have a reputation
of being small but hard-nosed during
the three years he has been head
mentor at Wewahitchka. After a 2-7
season his first year on the job, the
Gators have posted two successive 8-2
seasons for the past two years. That's
a record most teams in the Panhandle
would like to have.
The Gators will be in a new, but

Quincy's Robert F. Monroe, Panama
City Beach Charlie Fowler Christian
School, as the new entries in the
district, along with Sneads, Carra-
belle, Apalachicola, Chattahoochee
and Greensboro. "That district still
has some tough opposition in it, even if
Graceville and FAMU have been
taken out", Kizziah said.
Kizziah said that even though the
success of his team is a little
uncertain now, he still has some
experience he is counting on in
defense. Moving his experience to the
defense, Kizziah has 250 pound Greg
Linton the .pnly senior on the front.
The line will be filled out by Gary

Herring, Aaron Alderman and Wilbur
Wright. Linebackers are expected to
be Darryl Lister, John Whitfield, Brad
Attaway and Barry Eubanks. "We're
going to try to do it with a solid
defense", Kizziah said.
Defensive backs for the Gators
will probably be Todd McGlon, Randy
Mayhann, Ronald Mayhann and Du-
rand McLeod.
Offensive specialists will be Du-
rand McLeod replacing last season's
slick quarterback, Billy Joe Smiley.
Rounding out the backfield will
possibly be Rusty Wood, Ronald
Mayhann and Paul Davis. Filling out
the offensive line will be Haywood
Shealy, Ira Brown, Aaron Alderman,
Greg Linton and Wilbur Wright.

All Terrain Vehicles Outlawed

In Edward Ball Wildlife Area

All-terrain vehicles (ATVs) are
quite popular these days. More than
2.3 million ATVs have been sold and
are in use in America today as
off-road vehicles.
Commonly referred to as three-
and four-wheelers, their use is broad
as the imagination. They make it
easier and quicker for hunters to
cover rough terrain. They make
getting to favorite fishing spots
easier. ATVs are also used by
weekend recreational riders and
surveyors, ranchers and farmers. But
they do have drawbacks.
Hospitals nationwide have report-
ed approximately 270,000 ATV-related
injuries since 1982, according to the
U.S. Consumer Products Safety Com-
mission. In 1986 alone, 86,400 injuries
requiring hospital treatment were
reported. During this six year period
789 deaths were recorded.
Indiscriminate ATV use also
damages wildlife habitat. Trails cut
on hillsides, especially on sandy
coastal soils, erode after heavy rains
creating gullies and can cause silta-
tion in streams and creeks.
Some ATV riders have ridden off
established roads killing young pine

trees and created roads where none
existed before.
Here in the panhandle, ATV's
have been banned this year on the

Medicare Payments Can

Be Made In Two Ways

Medicare medical insurance can
help pay for physicians' services,
outpatient hospital care, outpatient
physical therapy and speech patho-
logy services, home health care, and
other health services and supplies.
Medical insurance generally pays
80 percent of the approved charges
after the patient has incurred the first
$75 of approved charges; this is the
medical insurance deductible. The
patient is responsible for the remain-
ing 20 percent of the approved charges
and any amount above the approved
Medicare medical insurance pay-
ments can be made in either one of
two ways. The payment may be made

JC Projects Go Over Big

Events Draw A Lot of Attention; Collect MD Donations

The Port St. Joe Jaycees, in
conjunction with the Wonder Bar will
be hosting a Preacher Glass appreci-
ation picnic and volleyball tourna-
ment behind the Wonder Bar Sunday,
September 13.
Entry fee for the tournament will
be $50.00 and the tournament will be
an eight team double elimination
format. Team and individual trophies
will be awarded to the first three
finishers. The Jaycee team is the
early favorite. Big barbecue sand-
wiches, potato salad, chips and tea
will be served for $3.00 per plate. The
project is financed largely by don-
ations from the community. Several
businesses in the area are already
behind the project. Everyone is urged
to join the Jaycees, the Wonder Bar
and area businesses in showing their
appreciation to Preacher Glass for his
years of service to Gulf County.
This project is being spearheaded
by chairman Gracie Stagg and
co-chairman (and new member)
Joanie Hanson. Anyone interested in
competing in the tournament may call
648-9920 for more information.

Through the great support of the
community, the Port St. Joe Jaycees
enjoyed tremendous success with
three projects over the Labor Day
Weekend. The Holiday Rest Stop had
close to one hundred visitors from
places as far away as Canada,
Washington, and Illinois. Several
members of the community also
visited, drank coffee and socialized. A
very special thank you goes out to the
Florida Natiohal Bank for providing
the location and electricity for the
weekend's events, also the several
visits from bank president, Ted
Cannon. Special thanks to Sal Elia for
newspapers and the Port St. Joe
Police for keeping an eye on the
female crew on Friday night. The
Jaycees signed new member Jane
Smith at the rest stop and she worked
hard all weekend. Chairman Al Smith
did a fantastic job as over 25 Jaycees
turned out to help over the weekend.
Comments President Gene Dickey,
"We have always drawn our success
through the support of the commun-
ity, from the turnout and comments
from local citizens this weekend
brings out the pride and teamwork

spirit that we are striving for."
The Gulf County Literacy Council
Jaycee boiled peanut sale was held in
conjunction with the rest stop with an
extra site at the beach. Over $200.00
was raised to send Jaycee VISTA
volunteer Melissa Marlowe to Syra-
cuse, New York in efforts to affiliate
the local council with the national
federation. They are now currently in

Statewide 911
Driving to activate Florida's 911
Emergency Number system state-
wide, Governor Bob Martinez and the
Cabinet have proclaimed September
11 (9-11) as "Florida 911 Emergency
Number Day".
Noting that 49 Florida counties
are already committed to the emer-
gency call-in system, the resolution is
aimed at getting the remaining 18
counties on line.
Comptroller Gerald Lewis intro-
duced the resolution which is similar
to one passed by the 99th Congress.
More than 95 percent of the
population is covered by the system at
this time.
Many Florida counties are mov-
ing to take' advantage of recent
legislation enabling counties to levy a
fee on telephone access lines to fund
The Department of General Ser-
vices, which operates the State
telephone system and the 911 pro-
gram, reported the access fee is'
averaging about 30 cents per month,
per line.
Florida's 911 system has been
active since passage of the Florida
Emergency Telephone Act in 1974,
and has been credited with saving
numerous lives and considerable

It's Time to Get Started On Your Fall Garden Site

by Roy Lee darter
County Extension Agent
Healthful outoor exercise, a
feeling of accomplishment, and poten-
tial savings on the family food bill are
good reasons whr more and hmorer
Floridians are Iturning to home
vegetable garden. Soil preparation
and liming are very important
segments of vegetable garden produc-
tion. I will give you a few tips on initial
garden preparation.
Usually, the most physical part of
a vegetable g~rdenihg project- is
getting the soil ready for planting.
But, whatever ynud6, don't give in to
the temptation 'cut corners on this
phase of the 'operation. If you do a
poor job of preparing the soil, you can
expect poor results from your garden
even if you work hard on planting and
cultivation. If you're planning a large
garden, you may want to rent a
roto tiller, or even a small tractor and
plow, to use in preparing the soil. For
a small backyard garden, you can do
the work with a spade or shovel.
The time to begin soil preparation
depends to some extent on what's
growing on your garden site now. If
you have heavy weeds, or a cover
crop, you intend to turn under, you
should start a month or six weeks
before planting. This also is the time
to add lime, if needed.
If you've kept the garden site
fallow, or you plan to remove all
vegetation and no lime is required you
could prepare the soil and plant within
two or three days. However, if you
plan to work extra organic matter into
the soil before planting, you should
start two or three weeks ahead of
To prepare the soil, dig down six
to eight inches and turn each shovel
full completely over. If you're turning
weeds, or cover crop, you should
remove all the woody plant material,
because it won't decompose very well.
After the soil is turned, break all
clods and level with a rake. Do this as
soon as you can1 to prevent excess
drying of the soil, and to keep good soil
texture. This is important, because a
finely pulverized soil surface will
make planting easier, give you better
seed germination and help insure a
more even stand of vegetables. It's
especially important to have fine
textured soil when planting small-

to add some kind of liming material
well before planting at the same time
you turn the soil. Lime reduces soil
acidity. Without going into a chemis-
try lesson, lime adds calcium to the
soil and makes minor elements more
available to plants. The most com-
monly used form of lime is dolomite.
Beside calcium, dolomite provides
magnesium, another important plant
nutrient. You really should add lime
only when a soil test indicates the
need for it. Too much can be as bad as
too little. If a soil test indicates your
soil is too sweet, or alkaline, you may
need to add sulfur. The best thing to do

before liming or adding sulfur to your
soil is consult a reputable nursery-
man, or see your County Extension
To summarize briefly, to have a
good garden, you need to prepare the
soil properly. Be sure to start far
enough ahead of planting to allow
organic matter to decompose fairly
well. Turn the soil to a depth of six or
eight inches. And, make sure you have
a level, finely textured surface before
planting. If a soil test indicates lime is
needed to give your garden plot the

right acid level, it should be applied

when you turn the soil.

"We are still a very young team
which needs to mentally convince
itself it carn win", Port St Joe High
School athletic director and head
football coach Phil Lanford told the
Rotary Club last Thursday in giving
some of his thoughts on the prospects
for the coming football season.
Lanford said very few of his
Charges have more than one year's
experience playing in varsity football
and the great majority of his 44-man
squad is still very young. "We have
only six seniors on our squad this year
and only 14 athletes who have played.
organized, football before". The coach
said he wasn't making excuses for the'
coming year, but only alerting local
fans the Sharks are still in a building
phase and the team is coming along
ver well. ';We i s o very good
players", Lanford said. "I'm con-

can win, we will win".
The coach -said the year ahead
would be a test of any team,
considering the schedule the Sharks
have ahead of them. "We play a
number of teams with veterans at
every position and who have a
winning attitude".
"All we need is a little more
experience and some wiAs and we will
be a powerhouse. Playing teams like
Monticello,- Florida High, Blounts-
town and Havana in our District
should give us some of that experi-
ence" he said.
Lanford said the team will
.definitely be improved over last year
which, saw, perhaps the .youngest
Shark team ever fielded here ig Port
St. Joe. "We will,throw more than last
year, even though we are still working
.on our passing game. We will still be
predominately a running team, with a
'large, but inexperienced line to work
behind".' '

SLanford said that last year, his
~ coaches were.going to stress scholas-
ltic achievement as much as they
stressed athletic performance. "As a
consequence, we didn't have a man on
our squad which failed to pass any of
his subjects. We're going to continue
to stress the same qualities, this
year". "La riford said he impresses on
his charges they have no chance to
play college football unless they can
master the books as much as they can
master athletics.
The head coach pointed out that
the team will again. begin the season
on a two platoon rotation in the
games. "As the season develops, and
we find some of our players are
developing into rounded players, we
will play some of them both ways in
portions of the games, but we will
probably not have a situation where
any player stays on the field for the
entire game".
Lanford stressed that local sup-
