A rain storm which blew into Port St. Joe early Monday morning, was
responsible for blacking out a portion of the city for better than an hour

Florida Power Corporation manager, Mike McDonald said lightning
struck and knocked down a feeder line on Highway 98 near the overpass.
causing it to fall into, another set of high voltage transmission lines,
knocking them to the ground.
"We have feeders to the paper mill and to the business area of.town
on the same poles in that vicinity", McDonald said. One line of the paper
mill feeder was broken by the lightning bolt, falling into the other set of
"We had no power in the business district or in north Port St. Joe for a
little more than an hour", McDonald said. The damage to the paper mill

electricity. The feeder is for emergency purposes only.
McDonald said the company had power restored within an hour but
that the lightning damage took more than three hours to repair.
The storm which caused the power damage, struck the city before
daylight, knocking out the service at around 6:00 a.m.

we stayed up past midnight to build

would keep on working, sometimes
way into the wee hours of the
morning. It took a lot of work to put on
a scout circus but it was great fun and
it provided something we rarely see

The Joy of Camping
WHEN I TOLD my brother, who lives in Atlanta, about our planned
camping trip he said, "Sounds wonderful! I can tell you and the family
are enjoying life in Florida."
"You ain't just-a-whistling Dixie, brother," I replied, "you're singing
SHORTLY AFTER TALKING to my brother, my friend Ralph called.
He had heard we were going camping and wondered if he and his family
might come along.
"Why ask foolish questions," I exclaimed, "Ralph, you know ya'll are
more than welcome. We'll have a ball this weekend!"
We both made a list of things to bring and checked it twice. Plenty of
food and drinks, two ice chests filled with ice, tents, some firewood, a
cooker (with matches, please), fishing tackle and bait and last, but by no
means least, some snake bite medicine. I usually get snake-bit four or six
times on camping trips.
THAT NIGHT I created a mental picture of what it would be like the
next two days. I could see us launching the boats, getting all the kids in,
slowly motoring to the camp site and, like trained marines, unloading the
boat and making camp.
I also pictured two tents standing on the bank and two boats gently
rolling with the slight waves, anchored a few feet from shore. On the
bank, lounging in recliners were Ralph, Margaret, Virginia and myself,
while the kids played in the white sand at our feet.
On the back of my recliner was a sign that read, "I may be dead
broke Monday but today I'm right up there with the Rockefellers!"
SITTING'HERE IN the security of our modest home and thinking
about the camping trip, I now realize things didn't work out exactly as I
had planned. We did have fun but there were a few things that happened
that we didn't anticipate.
Below is a partial list of those minor, unwelcomed occurences:
-I failed to unhook the back straps holding the boat to the trailer and
put the drain plug in the boat. We almost pulled the truck in with the boat,
thereby sinking both.
-I suggested we bring the dog along. I should have brought two more
kids or more snake bite medicine.
-The tentwouldn't cooperate with the wind and the sand and no
-We couldn't bring the lounge chairs because there wasn't room. My
wife suggeste4unloading some of the snake bite medicine but she was
out-voted, one to one.
-There was more sand, wind and water than I remembered when I
was there last. When I was there last, however, we didn't pitch a tent,
cook and feed five kids and sleep without a shower. I also didn't
remember that particular area being "dog-fly" convention headquar-
-The campfire was located where it should be, right in front of our
tent. Guess which way the wind blew all night?
-While you are guessing, take a shot at how many boats were
beached, high arid dry, the next morning. We had two boats. If you guess
that number, you are awfully close.
-One boat ran out of gas early the next morning. I won't bother you
with trying to guess whose boat it was.
-The wind got up a little the next morning. It blew down the tents,
sand in the food and drinks, the boats back upon the beach and me into the
tent for the snake bite medicine.

than we I te"watr.'^
I DON'T KNOW WHY we didn't take more friends with us so they,

To the Editor,
My wife and I are relatively new
property owners and tax payers in
Gulf County. We.own a modest home
just off the beach. We live just outside
Orlando on a small lake. For years we
boated and water skied on the lake. As
the area grew, new homes were built
on vacant property on the land and
new outside residents moved in.
Before long we could no longer ski on
the lake we have lived on for twenty'
years becauseof complaints from new
residents. My point is that Gulf
County beaches have been open for
driving for years and it would be a
shame to see this privilege denied to
Small because of some disgruntled
. Several years ago a friend told us
about Port St. Joe and Gulf County
and the rest is history. Our friend
bought property, we bought property
and two other friends bought proper-
ty. We bought for the future, hoping to
retire to a place where we could ride
the beach to the Cape and watch the
sun set or go fishing. (It is too far to
walk) We hope we can still look
forward, to this.
There is no doubt that a few
people drive recklessly on the beach
and this must be stopped. However, I
-feel more actual damage and harm is
caused by careless boaters (commer-
cial and pleasure) dumping garbage,
oil, etc. which ends up on the beach
and kills sea life and birds and

As in most things in life, when
something is taken away it is usually
gone forever. Don't let this happen to
the privilege of driving on the beach.

regarding any homestead exemption
Presently, the county is paying
for all handling of garbage, except
house to house collection, throughout
the county. Inside city limits and in
some unincorporated areas in the
county, residents pay to have their
garbage collected and hauled to the
compactor and eventually, to the
The reason the City of Port St. Joe
got into the discussion of how to pay
for handling of collected waste in the
future, is that the City of Port St. Joe
paid half the cost of constructing the
compactor some two and a half years
ago, to the tune of $265,000. They have
a substantial investment here and
should they be expected to pay tipping
fees for their garbage customers,
since they have the investment in the
The city fathers agreed they
should be expected to pay their
portion of the service, with some
allowances made for their investment
in the compactor. The extent of this
(From Page 1)
allowance the city is willing to work
out "So long as everyone is treated the
same in the end", Mayor Pate said.
Both parties to the discussion
agreed there was no problem with the
tipping fee. The problem now is to
come up with a formula for applying it
equitably, as both boards seemed
determined to see happen.
In the meantime, Sam Graves,
director of the county landfill pro-
gram, said some relief may be in sight
within two weeks.
Be Nice to Your Friends ..
Somebody said, "Be nice to your
friends; if it weren't for them, you'd
be a total stranger." This is a cute
saying, but it's also a true saying.
Do you remember how good it felt
the last time you heard from a friend:
That cheery voice on the other end of
the phone lifted your spirits, didn't it?
I know some people who have ;
missed this point
are so caught up
in their own lives
that they hardly TT
have time to listen JUN
to anyone else.
And I even know by the Rev. Jerry
one or two who
will only be nice if
they think there is something'to gain.
People like that are capable of
being very nice, if they want to. But
after you get to know them, you start'
to doubt their sincerity.' One indivi-
dual, whom I have met, is said to be
accuracy, and before operating ai,
radar, an officer must have taken a
course consisting of a minimum of
forty hours on proper operation of the
radar and become certified by
meeting state requirements.
Lee stated, "The only real pro-
tection a motorist can have is a radar
detector." I disagree. The fact is the
only real protection a motorist can
have (against receiving a ticket) is to
obey the law and not exceed the speed
limit. She also related, "A detector
provides a reminder that a driver
should make sure he isn't travelling
above the speed limit, and it's a
defense against improperly issued
Fortunately, most of us can see
through that statement. I do not
believe I am off base when I say that
the reason most people use radar
detectors is so they can knowingly
speed and avoid getting caught.
Unfortunately, the emphasis of
concern has been misplaced. Speed
limits have been established for the
safety of motorists and pedestrians.
As the speed limit on certain rural
highways has increased, so has the

THE DANGER OF
MAIL ORDER PRESCRIPTIONS a
Often over the years, the danger of mail order
prescriptions have been cited in many medical
journals. Here is one example-
"The dangers of mail order prescriptions include
delays encountered in obtaining the medication, the
absence of the physician-pharmacist relationship, the
difficulties of checking the prescription files for
strength and dosage, and the possibilities that
prescriptions will- be filled by non-professional W
r personnel. All physicians should cooperate by keeping a
their patients informed relative to the dangers of these
schemes." (End of Quote)

An overtime point after kick by
Bonifay's Johnny Dixon snatched a
hard-fought win from the grasp of
Port St. Joe's Sharks Friday night,
giving the Blue Devils the long end of
a 14-13 game.
The Sharks entertained the home
fans all night long with their well
executed football performance, but
just seven relaxed seconds and the
extra point kick cost them the game.
SThe Sharks' defense was superb,
holding the Blue Devils out of the end
zone twice in the first half. In the first
quarter, the Devils were on the Shark
three with a first and goal, but the
Sharks stiffened and held for four
downs. Jamie Vathis made a key play
in this series, stopping the Devils' ace
running back, Bert Flowers on the
final play of the series.
Again in the opening series of the
second period, the Devils had driven
to the Port St. Joe nine yard line with
a first down. Terry Quinn knocked
down a Keith White pass into the end
zone to stop that threat and Collins
Hamilton tipped a second White pass
to knock it off target.
David Barnes electrified the
home town fans 10 minutes into the
first quarter, when he came pounding
through the middle of the pack from
his own eight yard line to ramble 92
yards for the first Shark TD of the
night. The scoring play started on the
Edges St. Joe, 14-13
second down of the series, after the lead. Passes
Devils had used most of the first Then came the Devils' turn. On Fumbles, lost

David Barnes ended the night
with 190 yards for the Sharks.
The Sharks' defense allowed their
first score of the season, Friday night.
David Williams paced the defense
with his 11 tackles and one sack.
nriday night, the .Sharks will take
to the road to Pensacola to play

team is 3-0 on the season and is ranked
number 'nine in the State Athletic

Players of the week, as a result of
performances in the Bonifay game
included David Barnes as offensive
player of the week.
Barnes carried the ball 22 times
and gained 190 yards for the evening,
including a 92 yard touchdown scam-
per. Barnes also scored on a two yard
plunge in overtime.
Barnes was .the Sharks' leading
rusher for the second week in a row.
Jamie Vathis was selected as the
defensive player of the week for his
play last Friday night, where the
defense continued to play its tough
brand of football.
Vathis, operating from his outside
linebacker position, had nine tackles
for the evening. Vathis graded out at
73 percent in his over-all performance
for the evening.
Vathis is a 179 pound senior
defender for the Sharks.
Steve Howell was selected the
player of the week on the special
teams for this week.
It isn't often a snapper wins the
designation, since he is all but
invisible down under while the play is
going on. Howell, however, was the
one who put the ball where it was
needed at crucial periods in the game
and was largely responsible for the
Sharks' success at punting, averaging
over 40 yards per kick Friday night.

Wewahitchka Gators Down Greensboro, 27-7
early in the second period, the
possession see-sawed back and forth
for the rest of the first half until that
fateful seven seconds left on the clock.
It appeared as if the Sharks would
take a seven point lead with them into
the locker room during intermission,
but the Devils had other ideas.
With seven seconds left in the first
half, the Devils took over possession
of the ball on their own 48 yard line.
White faded back to pass and the
Sharks covered up the receivers.
White scrambled in the backfield until
time ran out on the clock. Finally, he
uncorked a "hail Mary" lob all the
way to the goal line and two Shark
defenders were right on top of
Renford Denson, the only Devil in
scoring position. Somehow, Denson
came out of the crowd with the ball
and fell across the goal line to score.
Johnny Dixon kicked the extra point,
and the score was tied.
The entire second half was a
defensive battle with neither team
i able to get the ball across the goal
The Sharks had a chance to win
the game in regulation time late in the
fourth period, when one of their
longest sustained drives of the eve-
ning had them camping on the
Bonifay nine yard line with a first
down. Three straight plunges by
David Barnes moved the ball inside
the two and Barnes tried a dive over
both lines on fourth down, for thb
score, but fell short of the mark.
Then came the overtime.
In overtime, the Sharks won the
toss and in only two plays, had David
Barnes to scoot across the line with a
Shark TD. Williams' kick was just
inches wide, but the Sharks had a 13-7
Terry Quinn tackled 10 and Ernest
Gant and Willie Smith both had nine
tackles. Smith also had two intercep-
tions of Devil passes. Jamie Vathis
had nine tackles.
Other defensive stand-outs were
Kevin Dawson, seven tackles, Ross
Yowell, 6 and David Barnes, 5.

run. Berry Eubanks hauled in a

David Paul kicked two field goals
in the winning effort, as well as two
extra point kicks, to score eight points

Extension Agent's Comments:
Junipers May be Ideal for Landscaping Scheme
by Ror Lee Carter
County Extension Agent
Homeowners usually desire orna-
mental plants adapted to a wide
variety of environmental conditions,
requiring little maintenance and
having few pest problems. If this is
the type of plant you want then
consider Junipers. I would like to give
Dr. Robert Black, our Extension
Horticultural Specialist, credit for
providing me with this information.
A number of juniperus species are
currently in use by nurserymen and
homeowners, however, those com-
monly seem to represent only a few of
many varieties. The Juniperus genus
contains about forty species and many
named varieties from these species.
Junipers range in size from the very
dwarf types; four to six inches tall,
which can be used as ground covers to
large trees like our Southern Red
Cedar which is really a Juniper. This
tremendous size .'ange and almost
never ending array of.growth forms
make junipers outstanding specimens
for use in landscaping. Their versatili-
ty and adaptability to a wide range of
soils and climates combined with
their relatively easy maintenance
make the junipers outstanding orna-
mentals. They certainly deserve more
recognition than they have received in
Junipers have excellent tolerance
to salt spray and salty soils. Shore
juniper has been used extensively for
seaside plantings but other varieties
could also be used.
Junipers grow from Alaska to the
Southwest, tolerating extremes in
temperatures. There should be no-
where in Floirda where the plants
couldn't be grown.
They respond well to fertilization
so growth rate can be speeded up if
Another advantage to junipers is
their excellent drought tolerance.
Tolerance to desert-line conditions is
very important for plantings in urban
situations such as cities, along streets,
parking lots, and also around some
homes. Junipers require irrigation
only under extreme conditions.
Unfortunately, Junipers are not
trouble free as many people believe.
They can be severely damaged by
spider mites. The hotter and drier the
growing conditions, the greater the
mite problems. Mites can be control-
led however. The second pest problem
is a disease called .juniper or twig
blight. During moist seasons in areas
having high humidity, Juniper blight
can be a real problem. Tips of
branches turn brown and eventually
the entire branch will die back. If not
sprayed the entire plant may die.
One final cultural re1,;iirement
should be stressed. Junipers are full
sun plants. This should be kept in
mind when using these plants in the
landscape. Plant junipers where they
will receive at least full sun for half a
day, such as on the east or west side of
a building. In heavy shade junipers
grow little and are more susceptible to
Re-Organized Jaycees Involved In Projects
The Port St. Joe Jaycees are not
the newest civic organization in town,
but they may be the largest, at an
estimated 78 members, according to
president Gene Dickey. Dickey gave
the Rotary Club a first hand report
last Thursday on the revitalization of
"We don't want to be a club with
paper membership", Dickey said.
"When we say we have 78 members,
we want to be able to say we have 78
bodies we can account for".
Jaycees have traditionally been
the bright-eyed, bushy-tailed young
men trying to get a start on civic
leadership in the public world, and the
current crop here in Port St. Joe is no
exception. Active in the city and the
county off and on for more than 30
years, the current edition of member-
ship is becoming one of the more
active organizations in Gulf County
with back-to-back projects to help the
community and keep their member-
ship busy. "We have been running a
lot of public projects lately, but we try
to spread them around and get
different members to chair different
activities. This way, we give every-
body leadership experience and don't
work a few people to death trying to
keep up with our activities", Dickey
Currently, the local Jaycees are
looking at the possibilities of getting a
chapter started in Wewahitchka.
"They've had chapters up there
before, just like we have had here.
When we sponsor a group in Wewa-
hitchka, we want to sponsor an active
organization. We're not just looking
for points of accomplishment from the
national organization for starting a
new club", the Jaycee president said.
Dickey thanked the community
leaders present at the meeting for
their support in past Jaycee projects
and said plans were to keep the
organization active well into the future.
Check your local nurseries for
varieties of Junipers. These plants, if
used properly, will make an excellent
addition to your home grounds.

Natural Gas & Safet
Natural gas supplies vitally needed
energy to thousands of homes, businesses
and industries in Florida. Energy, whether it
be in the form of gas, electricity, oil, water,
etc., when uncontrolled can be dangerous.
Even though a record of safe operations
has been established over the years by the
regulated gas industry, knowledge of the in-
formation contained in this ad can assist you
in recognizing a potentially hazardous condi-
tion and take appropriate action to safeguard
life and property.
0. What Are Some of the Characteristics Of
Natural Gas A User Should Know?
A. Natural Gas is a mixture of hydrocarbons
composed mainly of methane and exhibits
the following characteristics:
1. Odorless,-an odor is added to this gas.
2. It is liglter than air and if released will
rise io the atmosphere unless trap-
3. It is nontoxic. However, as with any
burning process, incomplete combus-
tion will form carbon monoxide which is
4. It is colorless.
5. It has a flammability range of from
four% to 14% (approximate values by
volume of gas to air).
Q, Is Natural Gas Dangerous?
A. Gas, like all forms of energy, is capable of
doing damage and must be used properly.
However, the experience with natural gas
use shows it to be more safe than other
energy sources which you use in your
home or business.
Q. What Should You Know About Gas Odor?
A. 1. Natural gas doesn't normally have an
2. A substance is added by your gas com-
pany to give natural gas a "rotten-egg"
smell should it escape.
3. Become familiar with the smell. Should
you detect this odor, it doesn't positive-
ly tell you that there is a gas leak; but
this is sufficient reason for you to call
your gas company and have them in-
0. What Additional Ways Can You Detect A
A. 1. When the ground is wet, you may detect
a leak by seeing bubbles rising through
puddles of water in a uniform manner.
2. A larger leak of gas from underground
piping may be able to be seen by sand
blowing around a small hole in the
ground; it may be felt just as you may
feel air leaking from a small hole in a
tire or air hose; and if it is a large leak, a
noise can be heard similar to air leak-
3. A flame at or around appliance piping
other than at the burner indicates
Q. The Fact That A "Rotten-Egg" Odor Is De-
tected, Does That Mean That There Is A
Natural Gas Leak?
A. No. But this should be checked to assure
that the odor isn't an indication of a gas
leak. Call your gas company and report it.
Odors similar to that of natural gas may
come from the following:
1. A sewer system.
2. A water aeration plant which has a sul-
3. Swamps or bogs.
4. Areas where the land has been filled,
Q. If There Is A Gas Leak, Will You Always
Smell An Odor?
A. No. If gas leaks from an above ground
pipe, there should always be an odor.
However, when gas travels through the
ground, such as a leak from an
underground service line or main, the
ground acts as a filter and can remove the
odor from the gas.
Q. Why Isn't A Gas Odor Smelled When The
Gas Is Burned On A Gas Range or Fur-
A. The material used to odorize the gas is
flammable and is consumed in the process
of burning. If your equipment is properly
adjusted you should not detect the odor
when you are using your appliances.
Q. What Can One Do to Reduce the Possibili-
ty Of An Accident?
A. First keep the emergency telephone
number of your gas company handy. A
good place to keep'this number is to write
it down in the front of your telephone book
along with other emergency telephone
numbers such as fire, police, etc.
Other things which should be done to im-
pro0e safety as well as conserve energy
1. Teach children that they are not to play
with any appliances in the home.
2. Clean the burners and have them check-
ed for proper adjustment periodically.
3. Repairs, installations and removal of
appliances are jobs for qualified per-
sons. Use only qualified people to do
4. If lighting of an appliance is required,
ALWAYS light match and hold at igni-
tion point of burner before you turn on
5. .Follow the manufacturer's instructions
for operation and care of gas ap-
6. Never take a chance. If you think you
smell gas, call your gas company.
Q. What Should Be Done When One Believes
He Smells Gas?
A. There are many possible conditions which
could be encountered, thus it isn't possi-
ble to give specific instructions for every
situation: The following examples provide
general instructions which should assist:
1. If a slight odor is detected in a localized
area or room of a building-do not use a
match or other flame in the area; call
the gas company immediately.
2. If a strong odor of gas is detected in a
building or other confined space-do
not operate electrical switches, light
matches or use an open flame;
however, do open windows and doors to
ventilate the area (caution: don't turn on
exhaust fans) leave the building and
call the gas company.
3. If a strong odor is detected in a building
andlor a hissing sound is heard-do not
operate electrical switches, lights or
other devices; do evacuate the building
leaving exit doors open on your way out,
warn persons to stay clear of the
building and call the fire department
and gas company immediately from
4. If the odor of gas is detected outside (in
the yard, at the sidewalk, etc.)-im-
mediately call the gas company.
SAFETY IS YOUR BUSINESS. Educate
your family and friends about the precautions
to take when they believe they smell the odor
CAUTION: The term "Gas" is used by the
news media and others to include a variety of
products such as liquefied petroleum gases
(propane, butane), gasoline and natural gas.
Each product has its own characteristics
which differ from one another, thus the infor-
mation given in this advertisement is ap-
plicable only to NATURAL GAS.
NEVER POSTPONE CALLING
THE GAS COMPANY WHEN
YOU BELIEVE THAT YOU SMELL GAS.

The redfish fishery will reopen
October 1 through December 31 this
year as a temporary measure intend-
ed to provide maximum protection to
redfish populations this fall while
allowing some limited harvest. In
order to meet the recommendations of
the Governor and Cabinet, a full
review of redfish biology and man-
agement is underway, and will not be
completed in time for the fall fishing
season. Therefore, the Commission is
proposing this very limited opening
until a long-term solution can be
accomplished. During this period,
recreational fishermen will be al-
lowed to harvest one redfish daily per
person with an off-the water posses-
sion limit of two fish. Commercial
fishermen may havest five redfish
daily per boat. In addition, harvest of
redfish larger than 27 inches will be
prohibited. Provisions of the redfish
rule previously in effect (prior to the
existing closure to all harvest of
redfish in state waters) will also
apply, including a minimum size limit
of 18 inches, a prohibition on the use of
treble hcoks while fishing with natural
bait, a requirement that redfish be
landed in whole condition, and a
prohibition on snatch hooking. The
Commission is also designating red-
fish as a "restricted species," which
will require fishermen harvesting
redfish above the recreational bag
limit to have a special endorsement on
their saltwater products license.
New fishermen are encouraged
by the Commission to use barbless
hooks to facilitate the release of
redfish live and unharmed. In addi-
tion, fishermen are being asked to
check each redfish caught to see if
they have been tagged for research
purposes. The information received
by researchers is very important to
the protection and replenishment of
this overfished species, and instruc-
tions on reporting procedures is
printed on each redfish tag.
At the end of this special
three-month season, all harvest of
redfish will again be prohibited until
further action takes place, pending
completion and approval of a long-
term management plan.
