nesday to Remove Structure
If nobody files an appeal order to stop wheels which were put in action at
11:30 a.m. Wednesday of this week, the Dead Lakes Dam demolition will begin
After three and a half years of legal maneuvering, the Department of
Environmental Regulation was to issue the permit to remove the dam either
Wednesday afternoon or this morning.
The Northwest Florida Water Management District met in a special session
Wednesday morning, in the Gulf County Courthouse to proceed with their
Legislature designated task of having the dam removed. Bids for demolition
were opened at the Wednesday meeting, with K.M.T., Inc., of Lynn Haven, the
successful bidder for the job. K.M.T.'s successful bid was $32,000 for the
complete job. The State.of Florida had previously authorized an expenditure of
$65,000 for the removal, but have already spend some $33,000 of these funds in
legal fees and other matters pertaining to the preparations for demolition.
DER APPROVES PERMIT
Recently, a DER hearing officer issued a report prepared from testimony,
reports and evidence presented at a public hearing on whether or not DER
should issue their.permit for the dam's removal. The hearing officer, Robert
Benton, had recommended the dam be taken out and DER was to give their
verdict on issuing their permit Monday of next week. Instead, the approval
permit was to be issued either Wednesday afternoon or Thdrsday morning.
.... Tom Coldewey, chairman of the Northwest Florida Water Management
District presided at Wednesday's meeting, which awarded the contract for the
dam's demise. Richard Musgrove, a representative of the District, attorney
Gary Antone and Bill McCartney with DER, took part in the procedure.
According to Coldewey, K.M.T. must execute the contract within a week for
the agreement to be binding. All four gates to the drawdown structure will then
be opened and allowed to stay open for a period of 10 days, to equalize the water
on both sides of the dam. Work on actual demolition will then get under way on
the first Monday in October.
HAVE 30 DAYS TO FILE APPEAL
Coldewey said anyone who opposes the dam's actual removal has 30 days to
file an appeal, and filing of an appeal would stop the work of removal if the rules
are followed. The chairman said anyone filing an appeal has 30 days in which to
file and must put up a bond of $40,000 along with their filing.
The Dead Lakes dam was ordered removed by the Florida Legislature
after a large majority of voters in both Gulf and Calhoun counties voted to have
it taken out three and a half years ago. Since that time, the matter has been
continuously in the courts, with the public hearing by DER in April of this year
as the final legal step before permits were issued.
Permits to remove the dam had to be issued by the Northwest Florida
Water Management District, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the
Department of Environmental Regulation. The DER permit was the only one
which was accompanied by the public hearing.
No estimate was given as to how long the actual dismantling would require.
Removal of the dam will allow the Chipola River to flow freely through the
Dead Lakes without the impoundment at .the sputh end of the, lakes. .

Pensacola Doctor, Suffers
Fatal Attack While In Bay
Dr. Charles Patterson, 73, of Pensacola, was pulled dead from St.
Joseph Bay Saturday afternoon, after suffering a heart attack while in the
According to the Gulf County Sheriff's Department, Dr. Patterson and
his son-in-law, Don Greer, were snorkeling for scallops near Conch Island
out from Presnell's Fish Camp, when Dr. Patterson was seen floating in
shallow water about a half mile from the landing. The two men had been
snorkeling out of a boat when the incident occurred.
At first, Greer thought Dr. Patterson was floating along the surface,
inspecting the bottom for scallops. When he noticed the elderly man wasn't
moving, he went to investigate and found him dead.
Dr. Patterson's body was taken to Gulf Pines Hospital where he was
pronounced dead and transferred to the Medical Examiners office in
Panama City for an autopsy. The examination showed Dr. Patter-
son had died of a heart attack.
The incident happened Saturday afternoon at approximately 2:45 p.m.

she had received queries about trains
blowing their horns at crossings in the
city limits during the night. "Some of
these people were complaining of the
annoyance the noise is causing late at

Mayor Frank Pate said an
inspector was in Port St. Joe a few
weeks ago and informed the railroad
the horn must be blown, under federal
law, at every crossing. The local line
had stopped blowing its horn at city
crossings, where a barrier was
present, during the night hours. They
have resumed the practice.

The most vocal complaint aired
Monday night was by Mrs. Jean
Arnold who was quizzing the Commis-
sioners on why budgets and millage
continued to climb, even though
valuations were considerably higher
than they were around 1980. "Millage
should be coming down with the
tremendous increase in valuations",
Mrs. Arnold asked how much the
county was subsidizing the Beaches
water system. "You have a very
shoddy operation out there", she said.
"There are just a lot of instances
where water is not cut off when it
should be and bills are allowed to
accumulate", she stated.
"Is this an indication of how you
are running our county business,
too?" she asked. "Is this why our
taxes continue to rise, because of
shoddy management?" she asked.

Mrs. Arnold countered that she
thought Branch should begin thinking
about getting o9t of h.js position the
way taxes have been going up so
Regaining his composure, Branch
explained that "a great deal of our
budget is mandated in constitutional
officers and by state and federal
government requirements. There
isn't really much leeway left for the
county to manage expenditures".
Only Branch, Money and Bir-
mingham were present to take the
heat and they finally tentatively
adopted the budget as amended by
Birmingham earlier and several
small changes recommended by Clerk
Bennie Lister. In its tentative state
approved Monday night, the percent
of increase will be 14.046 over last

To Be A Boy Scout
THE BOY SCOUT OATH: On my honor I will do my best to do my
duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; To help other
people at all times; To keep myself physically strong, mentally awaIle.
and morally straight.
THE BOY SCOUT LAW: A scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful,
friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and
ALL OF YOU YOUNG men, age twelve and over, play attention. You
may not believe it but I wrote the Scout Oath and the Scout Law from
memory. I learned them both when I was twelve years old and a Boy
Scout, and that was quite a few years ago.
The Boy Scouts, to me, is one of the finest organizations in the world
for young men. I should have said young boys because Scouting is an
organization that is devoted to helping young boys develop into
outstanding young men.
For those of you who think Scouting is a "sissy" organization, let me
remind you that some of our most respected and successful leaders -
President Gerald Ford was an Eagle Scout excelled at Scouting.
SCOUTING LAYS THE foundation for good citizenship, for respect
and reverence toward God and country and general respect for the '
wilderness and the world around you. And, contrary to what some think
and might tell you, Scouts who have advanced and study Scouting are
.tough and could survive in situations where normal people would perish.
Some trends indicate that reverence and respect for. God and country
is outdated and "old fashioned". Let me assure you that some things
nevgr change and it's the Scouts of today and boys like them that fashion'
the world of tomorrow.
The Boy Scout Oath and the Scout Law are things on which this
country was founded and it's these same things that will keep it strong as
long as there are young men willing to stand up for them.
LET'S TALK ABOUT heroes. Boy Scout history is full of them.
Scouting teaches boys to react to adversity in a sensible and trained way.
It's like the policeman who reacts to a violent situation, as Sheriff Al
:Harrison did a.. few weeks ago, and does what he is trained to do.
You see, Scouting is more than just giving "lip service" and
dreaming of situations, Scouting is practicing for adverse situations and
how to handle them. Then, like the Scout Motto Be Prepared they are
ready to react. .
Young boys, let me encourage you to join the Boy Scouts and get
yourself some of this valuable knowledge and training. Parents, please
encourage your sons to get involved in Scouting. There is no better way .
. they can spend their time.
... + + + +, .
I DO KNOW THE Scout Oath and the Scout Law, If you don't believe
me, stop me and I'll quote them for you. If I can't, I'll buy you a
hamburger, fries and a coke.

More Than Just
To The Editor:,
This week at a meeting of the Gulf
County Commission, "legal lawless-
ness", prevailed. As a matter of
foregone conclusion the commission-
ers approved the current amendment
tt the .beach driving ordinance. In
tact, what. they approved was the
right of anyone with a $15.00 $50.00
sticker to drive on obur neighbors and
our; private .property. No? You say
that isn't true? 'But we say it. is, as
Gulf County does not have the funds,
the manpower, nor the determination
to prevent this from happening. The
Star in the July 30, 1987 issue reported
Sheriff Harrison as saying,,". .Of
course there is no way I'd have to
have three vehicles 24 hours a day to
patrol properly." By giving vehicles
the right to drive the beach, to each
and everyone out there that means the,
beach, ALL of it, riot just the area
between mean high tide and the
water.' And regardless of the Sheriff's
implication to the contrary, our
private property does extend to the
mean high tide level of the Gulf. How
many beach drivers respect that?
Our position to you is two-fold.
First, allow us to ask how many of
you would approve of our driving (at
20 MPH or less, of course) across your
front lawns, over your private proper-
ty, at any time of the day or night. And

Johnson which you published in the
August 27th edition, Mr. Johnson said
that I had indicated to him that "the
City. of Mexico Beach has spent all it's
going to spend on the canal, at least
for this year".
No such statement was made; to
the contrary, on the day following the
date of Mr. Johnson's letter, I signed a
purchase request to buy a dredge for
use in keeping the canal open to boats.
The $2,500.00 purchase involved funds

Kiwanians named committees
Tuesday, to get the annual Junior
Miss project under way and have the

Al Ray, general chairman of the

Pensacola early next year.
The entire club membership will

In the program session of Tues-

native of St. Louis, Missouri, but

graduation from Union Theological
Seminary in New York City.
Rev. Braden said he "retired" in
1975, when he became 65 years of age,
and since that time has served
smaller churches or churches without
a pastor for a period of time.
A former parishioner of his
from his Flint, Michigan pastorate

Survey teams were in the Port St. Joe area early this week, surveying the
approaches and location of the new highrise bridge at Highland View, which is
scheduled to begin construction late next year. Survey crews were locating
rights-of-way and setting location of the approaches of the new bridge. The
device shown above was used to pinpoint some of the reference points for future
crews which will be working on the bridge design and engineering in the future.

when they fumbled and lost the ball on
their own 26 yard line. Ivey Hender-

met with Ronald Mayhann after the
hand-off and Mayhann coughed up the
ball, which the Sharks promptly
There was no fancy stuff. The
Sharks just rammed it up the middle'
in three yards and what would have
been a cloud of dust if it had been
dusty, before they reached the one
yard line 13 plays later, helped by an
anxious Gator who jumped offside.
Quarterback Blaine Adams dove
under the pile from one yard out to
score and Bobby Williams kicked the
extra point to give the Sharks a 7-0.
Late in the second period, the
Gators fumbled again, as the wet ball
squirted from Ronald Mayhann's
hands as he was attempting to field a
Shark punt. Jamie Vathis pounced on
the pigskin on the Gator 44 yard line.
The Gators were called for hitting
Vathis late while he was down, so the
ball was moved 15 yards closer to the
goal line before it went into play. Then
David Barnes was called on and
pushed the ball to the Gator 12 on
four straight carries. Nicholas Rolack
then found an opening up the middle
and rambled to the Gator two. Barnes
then dived over both lines piled up on
the goal line, landing in the end zone
for the Sharks second TD. Williams'
kick was wide, but the Sharks were,
celebrating with a 13-0 lead with only *
43 seconds left in the first half. t
The Sharks scored for the third
time, in the fourth quarter, on the
third fumble lost by the Gators.
The Gators were driving, on the
scrambling of quarterback Durand
McLeod. Kevin Dawson, Ivey Heri-
derson and Jamie Vathis had caught
McLeod for an eight yard loss, but the
gritty little signal caller shook loose
and connected on two straight passes
to David Paul, moving the Gators to
the Shark 36 and somehow utilized
scrambling, passing and runs to get
the ball to the Shark eight yard line
before the roof fell in. A fumble on the
hand-off and Russell Cherry was right
there to scoop it up on the Shark 12
yard line and took off for the opposite
end of the field. Cherry did a
tight-rope act along the left sideline,
but stayed in bounds before he out-ran
the defenders and covered the second
half of the field unchallenged to score
the Sharks third score of the night.
The Gators didn't keep up with the
Sharks in their statistics, but they
bunched their yards together and had
their own chances at scoring.
Other than the three fumbles
which ended in Shark scores, the
Gators had two passes short circuited
at the goal line and a third intercept-

David Paul's hands. Then, in the third
period, the Gators had gambled oh a
fourth and three situation and moved
the ball to the Shark 28 before McLeod
again went to Paul at the goal line.
This time, Barnes was there again,
but this time, he intercepted the pass,
stopping the drive.
Late in the fourth period, the

Sharks, when one of the most exciting,
runs of the game, saw Mayhann
weave back and forth across the field
and run a Shark kick-off all the way
back from the Gator nine to the Shark
45, before he was finally brought
down. The Sharks were tagged with a
personal foul penalty and the Gators
were on the Shark 35. McLeod didn't
waste any time. On the first play of
the series, he threw a strike to John
Whitfield in the Shark end zone for a
sure score, but an overzealous Gator
was caught defending his quarterback
with a clip and the score was nullified.
Port St. Joe coach Phil Lanford
said, "We needed this game to get
started after last year's season. We
ought to win some more before this
season is over".
Gator Coach Dennis Kizziah said,
"We were just outmanned, but we're
not through yet. This is just the first
game of the season."

Gardening the Easy Way
'by Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Agent
Seeds or transplants? Which to
use is a very important decision for
those planning to grow a fall vegeta-
ble garden. You can successfully
produce vegetables with either. But.
seeds an tTransplants both have their
advantages and disadvantages. You
should consider all of these before you
make up your mind about which will
be best for you.
Today, I'll talk about the pros and
cons of starting vegetables with
transplants. And we'll offer some tips
to help you get transplants off to a
good start in your garden. My
information was provided by Exten-
sion Vegetable Specialist Jim Ste-
phens, of the University of Florida's
Institute of Food and Agricultural
One advantage transplants offer
is an early start. Transplants are
grown in protected seed flats, or
seedbeds. These allow seeds to
germinate under the best possible
conditions. Also, seeds in flats can be
started before the weather is really
suitable for planting directly in the
garden. So, whether you grow your
own transplants, or buy them at a
garden center, you'll be several weeks
ahead of a gardener who starts with
Using transplants allows you to
choose only the best plants. If you're
raising transplants in your own
seedbed, you'll have many more
plants than you really need. So, you
may select the healthiest specimens.
If you're buying transplants at a
garden center you can pick the best
from what's available. In either case,
be sure you choose only the strongest
plants for your garden.
Sure and Easy
0 0 0
Way to Start Your Vegetable Crops
The best times to transplant are
right after a rain, when it's cloudy or
in the late afternoon. Handle the
plants gently, and don't press the soil
too tightly around the roots. After
setting each plant, carefully pour a
little water into the hole to settle the
soil. Then cover the wet area with dry
soil to reduce evaporations.
To give transplants a quick start,
apply a starter fertilizer solution. You
can buy these ready mixed, or you can
make your own. For best results, mix
one or two tablespoons of a high
phosphate fertilizer something like
4-8-4 or 10-20-10 in a gallon of water.
Or, you can use an ordinary all
purpose fertilizer, like an 8-8-8. Just
pour about a pint of the mixture into
each hole as you set the plants.

Roy Lee Carter
It's easier to start from trans-
plants especially if you only need a
few for a window box garden. Or a
very small garden patch, using
transplants is jnuch more practical
than starting from seeds. By using
transplants, you can minimize seed-

If you're raising your own trans-
plants, they should be ready for the
garden when they're four to six weeks
old. Those you buy usually are ready
to set out immediately. If the
seedlings are in individual containers,
moisten the soil before removing
them. If the transplants are growing
in peat pellets, insert them directly
into the soil. Don't try to remove the
plants from the pellets.
