City Lets Pact



for Repairing



Sewer Mains

Parker Mechanical Successful

Bidder for Job at $212,000


The City of Port St. Joe will begin
a $211,000 rehabilitation of several
older sewer collection mains in early
December. Continuing a program to
reduce infiltration to the collection
mains, the contract will cover several
locations throughout the city where
the mains are in a bad state of
disrepair.
Earlier this year, an inspection
was made of the mains with a
television inspection program. The
contract approved Tuesday night
would replace those mains which
were found to be broken and causing
continuing.maintenance problems.
Parker Mechanical of Crestview
was the successful bidder at a total
price of $212,687. The city has a grant
of $115,000 for a portion of the
expenditure, but must fund the
remainder from city finances.
Parker is scheduled to begin work
around December 1 and is expected to
require five to six months to complete
the project.
Included in the contract will be
replacement of the entire sewer
collection main on Woodward Avenue
between First and Fifth streets. The
stretch of sewer main is probably the
oldest in the city.
The city had allocated $230,000 for
the project, but had the bid presented


at the $212,687 figure.
Repair of the collection main
system was one of the recommenda-
tions made in a "201" study mandated
by the Department of Environmental
Regulation some six years ago to
regulate flow into the Wastewater
Treatment Plant.
POLICE CHIEF SELECTION
Commissioner Bill Fleming re-
ported the committee selected to
screen applicants for the position of
police chief of Port St. Joe is making
rapid progress. "They have been a
hard-working committee and they're
putting a lot of concern and interest
into their responsibility", Fleming
told the Commission Tuesday night.
Fleming said the committee had
screened 29 applications for the
position and had selected nine appli-
cants to personally interview. "They
talked to four applicants Wednesday;
they'll see two more Thursday and
three Wednesday of next week",
Fleming said.
The committee will make recom-
mendation of finalists to be consider-
ed to the Commission where the final
decision will be made for the position.

Police Chief on an interim basis for

He's Had A Change of Heart


"I've Had A Change of Heart!" declares a slogan air
brushed on his T-shirt and on a white cap, both of which
were presented Oris Andrews of Port St. Joe as he left
Tallahassee Regional Medical Center Friday after
receiving a new heart in the facility and heading for home
with a new outlook on life.
Andrews, 50, was released from TMH after undergoing
what is officially designated "cardiac transplant surgery"
on September 16. Andrews' shirt and cap simply and
succinctly say, "I've Had A Change of Heart", and
Andrews is proud of it.
Andrews was the 21st heart transplant patient at
Tallahassee Memorial since the hospital's program began
in September 1985.


Andrews' surgery was performed by Thomas J. Bixler,
II, M.D., director of the cardiac transplantation program,
during a 70-minute operation. Andrews was..admitted to
Tallahassee Memorial on August 10, with end-stage
coronary artery disease.
Tallahassee Memorial's heart transplant team per-
formed its 22nd transplant operation on a Miami man just
24 hours after Andrews' surgery. Joseph Mead, 61, of North
Miami Beach, is listed in serious condition at Tallahassee
Memorial.
With Andrews, it's another story. He is at home
resuming his life once more on a heart which once belonged
to someone else. He still doesn't know from whom or where
it came from. He's just thankful to get it.


Schools Are Requirini


Pledging allegiance to the flag
will be among the required activities
in Gulf County's school system after
an official policy statement is adver-
tised in November, according to
spokesmen from the county system.
"We have been reciting the
pledge of allegiance every morning,
but it will be a legal policy of our
system after the new policy paper is
approved and advertised in Novem-
ber", Temple Watson, an executive in
the school headquarters said Wednes-
day. "We will require the pledge be
recited the first of each school day,
along with some other requirements
we are making", Watson said.


One of the other requirements
include a grading system designated
by the State of Florida. The new
grading requirements will be in effect
in grades nine through 12, which
stipulates the grading requirements.
"We have already been requiring
this schedule in grades 9-12", Watson
said, "But we're also going to extend
it for grades seven and eight".
PLAN TO BE FRUGAL
Gulf County schools have been
threatened by the loss of some $350,000
in state money if the service sales tax
isn't continued or a substitute tax
source put in its place.


g Pledge
"We didn't make any plans
Tuesday as to what we would do if we
lose this money, but in the meantime,
we have adopted a policy of being
very frugal in our expenditures",
Watson said.
Betty Castor, State School Super-
intendent has said all county school
districts will receive a cut in their
state funds if the new tax is repealed.
In other business matters, the
School Board agreed to add a new
coaching slot to the job descriptions to
allow for supervision of a growing
volleyball program. The board also
agreed to limit a student's possible
subject load to seven subjects per day.


Emergency Power
City building inspector Al Gay, starts up an emergency generator which
has just been installed in a new room at the rear of City Hall, while installing
electrician Riley Rowland and Lieutenant James Graves of the Police
Department watched the test.
The generator, which will pull 100 amps of output, is a result of one of the
needs seen as the result of Hurricane Kate striking the Port St. Joe area two
years ago.
The generator is designed to furnish the entire electrical needs of the City
Hall, Police Department and Fire Department buildings in case electric service
is curtailed for any reason. When "Kate" struck a week prior to Thanksgiving
in 1985, the city building complex was utilized as an emergency control center,
but had no emergency power.
Now, it has!


County S

Like many other Sheriffs in the
state of Florida, Gulf County Sheriff
Al Harrison is taking the stump, too,
to oppose the new gun-toting law
which went into effect on the first day
of this month.
Sheriff Harrison says he would
like to see the permitting process
placed back in the hands of the county
commissions and sheriffs of the
several counties of Florida, rather
than being left to a state agency.
"Most sheriffs of most Florida
counties know their people and who
can be trusted with a concealed
firearm. My problem is that I don't
know Julio Rodriguez from Miami,
who has been successful in obtaining a
concealed weapon permit and has
since come into Gulf County. I don't
t know his business, nor do I know his
intent, but his concealed weapons


sheriffs Take Stump to Oppose Pistol Packing Permits


permit is just as good in Gulf County
as it is in Dade County."
Even though Sheriff Harrison and
other sheriffs in Florida do not like the
law-as is also the case with many,
many private citizens-the law has its
good points and its bad, but many feel
the bad points far outweigh the good
because carrying a gun, concealed or
in plain view, poses many problems
which can be of an extremely
dangerous nature.
GOOD AND BAD
One of the good features of the law
is that it takes a 21-year-old resident
of Florida, at least three months to
obtain a concealed weapons permit.
Too, he must shell out $146.00 to pay
for the permit and the permitting
process.
A person who desires a permit
must file that intent with a county


sheriff or the Florida department of
state. He must then wait 90 days for an
investigation of his character to be
carried out. An applicant must be
finger-printed and successfully ma-
triculate through a firearms school.
He must have his civil rights in effect
and cannot have committed or been
found guilty of use of a controlled
substance or be a habitual user of
alcoholic beverages excessively.
If he is successful in obtaining a
permit, he cannot carry it concealed
or otherwise in any place of nuisance,
in any detention or law enforcement
office, in any courtroom or polling
place. If he goes into a bar, he must
check his gat at the door, just as they
did in the wild, wild west.
All of this and more applies to a
person who has a permit to carry a
gun. Now, how about a person who


does not have a permit?
WITHOUT A PERMIT
"You can legally carry a firearm
in your car, without a permit, if you
follow several simple- rules and
regulations", Sheriff Harrison said.
A firearm can be carried in your
vehicle if it is lying on the seat in plain
view while encased in a holster or bag
which snaps, zips or buckles. The
restraint must be in place, making the
weapon harder to bring into use
should the need occur. The weapon
may also be placed inside the glove
compartment on your vehicle, where
it is not necessary to keep it encased
in a holder of any kind.
"I don't advocate leaving the gun
on the seat, even if it is holstered or in
a zipped bag or a fastened box. It's
more likely to get stolen here. If you
feel you must carry a firearm in your


car, you should keep it fastened in the
glove compartment".
A weapon may not be carried in a
vehicle under the seat, between the
seat and door or between the seats or
otherwise concealed. The only legal
way to carry a firearm in your vehicle
is in one of the two methods described
by Sheriff Harrison.
APPLICATIONS ALREADY FILED
Although the new law only went
into effect Thursday of last week, the
Sheriff said, Friday, there have
already been 10 Gulf County citizens
who have applied for a permit. "These
applicants must go through consider-
able screening before a permit is
issued. We either know them all or
kow where we can get the kind of
information we need to make a
determination on their fitness to
carry a concealed weapon. In the big


counties, the sheriffs are not going to
know all the applicants and if they
don't ask for information in the right
places there are going to be some
people get permits who really aren't
eligible to receive them. That is my
basic objection to the law", Sheriff
Harrison said. "Also, I believe the
permitting process needs to stay in
the hands of the local sheriff and
county commission. We're giving
away too many of our local controls",
Harrison said.
The Sheriff is also worried that
after legitimately receiving a permit,
there is liable to be some misinterpre-
tation of how he is legally empowered
to use the weapon. "The permit does
not permit a person to take the law
into his own hands", he said. "There
are not enough guidelines to control
mis-use of the firearm".

Being Fair

THE STAR


PAGE TWO


THURSDAY, OCTOBER 8,1987


It seems like we have been
writing about Gulf County's
garbage collection problems
for at least a decade, even
though it hasn't been that
long.
Last week, we were clean-
ing out some old newspaper
files and there in an issue of
The Star of three years ago
were listed the very same set
of problems which is pounding
us in the midriff today.
The reason the problem
couldn't be solved three years
ago, was the same reason it
can't be solved today without
causing severe trauma of the
pocket book in our public
funds.
The County and Port St.
Joe Commissions are begin-
ning to meet to discuss what
responsibilities belong to
which governing body. Each
group is determined to make it
as light on his constituents as
possible.
In this light, it has been
agreed upon that something
must be done to finance solid
waste disposal in an equitable
manner.
The Port St. Joe Commis-


sion has proposed there must
be a local ordinance passed to
require home owners to sub-
scribe to some sort of waste
collection in order to have a
responsible party dealing with
the disposal of the waste.
Otherwise, most of it will wind
up in the woods, along road
sides, on public property, on
private property-anywhere
except in .a waste disposal
receptacle.
We agree with the Port St.
Joe Commission. If a person is
paying to have his solid waste
handled for him, he is likely to
let them handle it rather than
toting it off down some
two-lane road and tossing it to
the four winds.
Too, those who generate
garbage and trash should
reasonably be expected to pay
for its disposal.
It's only fair that every-
one be required to have his
trash handled by professionals
and pay the freight for his own
services.
Being fair to everyone is
what the meeting last week
had both bodies of elected
officials agree upon.


Hunker Down with Kes



My Dad Just

Used A Broom

by Kesley Colbert


My two boys are growing up. You
can really see it at my house on school
mornings. Their mother wakes them
now. She just hollers down the hall for
them to get up the eggs are about
done. They don't even eat eggs but
they get up anyway. Well, Jesse gets
up. Josh has been known to roll back


over a time or two or seven before
Cathy explains to him just exactly
why he is fixing to get up. A serious
enough threat will usually get his eyes
open anyway.
I used to be in charge of school
morning wake ups. I got demoted. I
reckon they outgrew me. It's kind'a


sad at my house in the mornings now.
Why, I haven't given out one Tarzan
yell since school started. You didn't
expect me just to go in there and say,
"Wake up boys, it's time for school."
It all started with the roto-rooter.
I'd lay down beside Josh's bed and
chant, "Roto-rooter, roto-rooter, roto-


Failed to "Sell" A Need


Reading about the hassle
in the special session of the
Legislature last week, con-
cerning the repeal-replace-
alter attempts on the sales tax
on services, it is easy to see
how such an unpopular tax got
passed in the first place.
Doesn't anybody know
what is going on or what is
needed in the State of Florida?
If it were so all important
that we have that extra
revenue which was expected
to be generated by the addi-
tional tax, it would seem to me
most of those in the know in
state government would know
just what it would take to
remedy a situation they are
trying to sell us as being bad.
Some of the Legislators
want to make some changes in
the service sales tax law.
Some Legislators want to
replace it with a sixth cent
levy on a $1.00 purchase. Still
others want to just repeal the
sales tax on services and
forget the whole thing. We're
right in there with this last
group.
With all of these divergent
opinions on hand this late in
the game-after the new tax
has been bandied about all
over the state by almost
everyone-if the law makers


still are so divided it makes
one wonder just how did they
ever get together to pass the
new tax in the first place?
One thing the special
session has done; it has
provided a forum for those
who champion an additional
tax to take care of "needed
new services" in the state to
hammer away at the public
and try and make them agree
with the premise.
If that doesn't work, we
might as well forget the new
sales tax on services for a
while, regardless of how much
the money may or may not be
needed.
Failure to communicate
any mythical or real need in
the beginning is what brought
about this special session in
the first place.


Was Anyone Awake?
When you add the faux pas
of the gun toting law to the
sales tax fiasco, one wonders
if anybody was awake in
Tallahassee during the last
regular session.
The gun law has drawn
an equal thrashing of negative
opinions across the state and
before long, that new statute
will have, to be changed or
honed also.

ushers in the hunting season. This
past Saturday was the first day of the
three part dove season here in
Northwest Florida. and serious dove
hunters were out in force on that first
day to try and get a shot at one of the
grey pigeons.
-* I remember just a few years ago,
I had to go on that first day. It just
wasn't possible that I would allow the
first day of the dove season to pass me


by without taking off on a trek to the
dove field.
Even though I usually spent most
of that first day hunting and not
shooting, I would go on that first day


season. I know it's going to be too
warm for a flight of doves to be driven
in, so I just wait a couple of weeks
before I hit the fields.

every year. It was almost like a
swallow going back to Capistrano. It
was almost a reflex with me and quite
a few others I know.
In recent years. I have either
become not so wasteful of my energy
or more reasonable in my dove
hunting activities.
Now. I know there will not usually
be enough doves around to hunt on the
first day of the first portion of the split


season, yet, to ward off those hot
sunny Saturday afternoons, which
make sitting in a dove field, waiting
for the birds to fly, a miserable
experience.
The dove waits for the tempera-
ture to reach a more reasonable level,
but the hunter doesn't.

THE COOL WEATHER in the fall
usually does away with the love bugs


and other pests,
been that cool.


but so far it hasn't


A trip to Crawfordville late last
week plastered the front of my car
with the love bug carcasses, making a
bath a necessity when I got back
home. A smashed love bug is about
the hardest substance there is to get
off the front of a car. The cool weather
may soon get rid of them, but they're
not quite gone yet.
I notice, this fall, the scientists
are worried about the hole in the ozone
layer over Antarctica, which they say
is seemingly getting bigger and
bigger every year. They don't know
why. They aren't even sure it is
getting bigger.
I'm not sure they're certain the
hole in the layer is even a recent
phenomenon. It may have been
happening all the while, but nobody
noticed it.
Actually, if I were an ozone and
had the misfortune to park over
Antarctica, I would have a malfunc-
tion also. Being over that slab of ice
doesn't strike me as being any picnic,


and everyone knows picnics come in
the spring. With this deduction, I
declare the hole in the ozone layer is a
natural thing and we all know we
shouldn't fool with mother nature.

FALL DIDN'T BRING us any
hurricanes this year-so far-but it
did bring California a jarring earth-
quake last Thursday.
I don't know why, but I have the
opinion I had rather have a hurricane
than an earthquake, just any day of
the week.
With a hurricane, one knows when
it will strike, how severe it is, what
path it will take, what to expect in the
way of intensity from every avenue.
With an earthquake, one is trying
to stand a nickle on'edge one second
and fighting for balance and safety
another second.
I have never experienced an
earthquake, nor do I want to. They
can keep them in California.
The suddenenss of an earthquake
means, you can't run and you can't
hide.

M.B. Canal

A Necessity
Uear Editor:
I've been reading with great
interest the remarks of the Mayor of
Mexico Beach and others in regards to
the controversial canal issue. I feel
compelled to give a few viewpoints
from the other side.
First, I can understand to some
degree the non-fishermen who feel
that enough has been done and said
about the canal. However, many
residents and non-residents believe
strongly the canal is the "lifeblood" of
Mexico Beach. Most of the property
owners (taxpayers) are there, direct-
ly or indirectly, because of the fishing
element or access to the Gulf by boat.
I feel the canal is important to
every property owner at Mexico
Beach. A very large number of us
would not be property owners or
taxpayers there if we didn't have
access to the Gulf. Also, most of the
"seasonal" visitors, the renters,
would go elsewhere if "papa" couldn't
go fishing. The whole economy of
Mexico Beach largely depends on the
canal.
I do not pretend to know'the
answer but somehow, someway, there
is an answer to the canal problem.
True, this daily pumping is, in a way,
like throwing money down the drain.
There's got to be a better and more
permanent way to keep the canal open
on an every day basis.
I feel the vast majority of the
taxpayers of Mexico Beach would
urge the town council to make every
effort (leave no stone unturned) to
resolve the everyday canal problem.
There are state and federal funds
being used for much less feasible
purposes. For instance, the State of
Florida just built a new golf course in
a nearby community with much less
people use potential than the Mexico
Beach waterway. And, believe me, it
cost some kind of money to build a golf
course and still more to maintain it.
Yes, I believe money is available
to do the canal job at Mexico Beach
but getting the right people to go to the
right place may be the problem.
Representatives, Senators and Con-
gressmen could be the right people
and they could very well know the
right places. .it can be done!!!
Thanks for the opportunity to
express still another viewpoint.

SHAD

PHANTRY
by Wendell Campbell



Coach Joe Renfro

IN 1945 HE WAS AN ALL AMERICAN at Tulane University where he
still, I believe, holds the longest punt record; a little boot of 89 yards.
Several weeks ago I received a call from Sonny Wiman in Forrest,
Mississippi. I could remember the name but couldn't remember owing
him any money so I returned his call.
"COACH JOE IS RETIRING," Sonny said, "and Fm trying to get the
1957 Championship team up here for a get-together for him. Can you
come?"
"I wouldn't miss it for anything," I replied quickly. "There's a lot of
things I have been wanting to say to and about Coach Joe ever since I left
Hinds Junior College. Can you arrange to have me on the program for
about ten minutes?"
Sonny assured me he would put me on the program.
1957 WAS A LONG TIME AGO but I remember it as though it were
yesterday. It was my first time to be away from home and although I was
still a "bed-wetter" I didn't want to go back. I had all the farming I
wanted and, besides that, I was up early enough that I could turn my mat-
tress over and no one would know my problem.
Coach Joe made it exceedingly hard to want to stay. He was doing
things in 1957 and 1958 that made Vince Lombardi famous some years
later.
He believed there was no substitute for conditioning. And he was
right. Three-a-day practices were nothing unusual for the first three
weeks. After that he trimmed it down to two, plus a meeting at night to
review films and plan strategy on how we could slaughter our next oppo-
nent.
HE WANTED TO MAKE SURE when we walked ... .er, ran on the
field that the other team couldn't give us anything, mental or physical,
that we hadn't already been through.
They didn't either because that first year we won all ten games, scor-
ing 387 points and having only 36 scored on us. We won the Mississippi
Junior College Championship and were invited to play in the Junior Rose
Bowl in Pasadena. We could not accept but that's another story.
BACK O COACH JOE. Coach Joe is almost full-blooded Indian. I
don't know what tribe he descended from but just pick out the meanest,
toughest one and he would fit right in. One story about he and his
brothers, who were from Ft. Myers, Florida, was that they would go look-
ing for fights and if they couldn't find one they would fight each other.
I believe that story. Coach Joe believed that football and blood were
one and the same, like bacon and eggs or ham and grits. One day at prac-
tice, when Bennie Hawkins made a decisive tackle on me and knocked me
staggering and nose bleeding, I heard him shout, "Hot damn! Now we're
playing football, men!"
HE WAS A MASTER at psychological warfare. He would start
rumors about what certain players from our opposition were going to do
to certain key players on our team. The week before one particular im-
portant game someone painted some terrible things on our gym one
night. They were some remarks about things that were going to happen to
some of our key players and mentioned some cheerleaders.
I have no proof and he would never admit it but I believe he had infor-
mation about that paint job, before it happened. We beat that team
unmercifully that Saturday night.
As tough and unrelenting as he was, everyone loved him. He was a
great coach because he made you do the things it took to win. And I've
never seen a winner that wasn't happy and proud.
I AM PROUD TO HAVE HAD the opportunity to play under Coach
Joe Renfro and I'm happy that I will be able to share some time with him
on this important occasion.

like mad. Josh would finally get a lit-
tle hand on my ear and twist it. This,
as you know, is how you turn off a run-
a-way washing machine. He'd lay
there until he'd get his composure and
then he'd give my ear another turn.
I'd grab him by a leg and an arm and
fling him around and around. He'd
yell, "Oh no, Daddy, not the spin
cycle!"
Some mornings I was the kissing
machine. He couldn't stand to be kiss-
ed. The kissing machine could deliver
about 9,000 kisses a minute. He'd
laugh, yell, "Stop Daddy" and be
reaching for my ear all at the same
time.
The Tarzan yell usually let them
know the wrestling match was about
to begin. Sometimes they would be the
lions, sometimes the alligators -
whatever Tarzan had to fight that
day. I hated it when they wanted to be
alligators 'cause we always ended up
in the bathtub and I can't hold my
breath like I used to.
'As we all got a little older we'd
take a boat ride down the Cascade
River. Jesse would "drive" the bed
which served as our boat. The water
of course was anything off of the bed.
We'd never go far before we'd hit a
rock and the boat would flip over,

"throwing" us all into the raging,
swirling Cascade River. I always got
knocked unconscious and had to be
pulled to safety by one or both of the
boys. We'd call Nurse Jane to come
and take a look. Back in our river
days I was Tom, Josh was Bill and
Jesse was Joke.
Sometimes Tom, Bill and Joke
would be in a log truck. Yep, you got it
we'd hit a rock and turn the truck
and six hundred logs over on top of
three men. One guy would finally dig
himself out and run for Nurse Jane. I
remember one day when we were in
an airplane ... I think Bill was at the
controls. It was the worst wreck I've
ever seen. Nobody could even call
Nurse Jane she just walked in to
say breakfast was ready and found us
lying on the rocks.
We had our breakfast every
morning at the Old-Home-Filler-Up-
and-Keep-On-Trucking Cafe.
Waitress Jane served it up hot the
way we liked it. Well, breakfast is still
served hot but somehow it's not the
same I want the boys to grow up but
heck I'm not in that big of a hurry.
Maybe in the morning .... we could
start with the roto-rooter.
Respectfully,
Tom

the past three years has said he would
like to step down because of health
reasons and advancing age. Maige is
the retired chief of the Tallahassee
Police Department.
INSURANCE COVERAGE
Since about the middle of the
present calendar year, the City has
been searching for quotations on its
property damage insurance coverage
to no avail. "We didn't get a single
bid" Clerk Alden Farris said. The City
paid $29,000 for the coverage last
year, which provides fire, windstorm
and extended coverage on its real
property.


BMC Suit

prisoner, Donald W. Rhames, for a
broken leg and another prisoner,
Robert L. Jones, was treated for
pneumonia and the county charged
$10,001. Both bills were incurred in
the past fiscal year, when the
county had no item in its budget for
such expenditures.
When the bills were first
received, Sheriff Al Harrison veri-
fied that both men were given
treatment by the hospital while they
were prisoners in the Gulf County
Jail. He said neither inmate had
health insurance and that health
insurance to cover inmates to the
jail was not available.
When Gulf County Clerk, Benny
Lister pointed out that the bill had
been paid as negotiated, the suit
was dropped.

Arson
mined that the September 26 blaze
was intentionally set with a flam-
mable liquid being used to start the
fire in a hallway inside the
dilapidated building.
Buchanan said an arson case is
hard to investigate because so
much of the hard evidence is
destroyed in the resulting fire. "If
anybody has any information which
may result in us finding another
lead in the case, we would appreci-
ate their calling our office in the
courthouse, the Sheriff or the St.
Joe PD", Buchanan said.


home for some $8,000 in merchandise,
according to Chief Deputy Jack
Davilla.
Arrested were Harold Eubanks of


Dothan, Alabama, and Rex and
Nadine Veasey of Kinard, charging
them with taking jewelry, guns and
appliances from the Edward Pridgeon


__ (Continued from Page 1)


"The League of Cities quoted us
$42,000 and change for the coverage
with a $1,000 deductible", Farris said.
He said Hannon Insurance quoted
virtually the same price, but with a


$2,500 deductible".
Since the City has taken bids and
received none on the coverage, they
are free to negotiate for coverage.

home at Bryant's Landing.
Eubanks was charged with burg-
lary of a dwelling and the Veaseys
were charged with burglary of a
dwelling and possession of a control-
led substance, allegedly found in their
possession when they were arrested'
Wednesday night.
Davilla said all three suspects are
natives of Wewahitchka, but have
moved within the past few months.
The Chief Deputy said neighbors
saw Eubanks' car in the vicinity of the
Pridgeon home on the night of the
burglary and the Dothan, Alabama

went to Dothan to make the arrest and
apprehended Eubanks along with the
Dothan police. Eubanks signed an
extradition order, allowing him to be
brought back to Gulf County.
The Veaseys were arrested the

and charges filed. Rex Veasey was
also charged with having cocaine in
his possession and Nadine Veasey, his
wife, was charged with having
cannabis and cocaine in her posses-
sion.
Part of the stolen property was
said by Davilla to have been recover-
ed in Dothan and the remainder in
Wewahitchka.

Sharks Suffer Loss at Hands of Crusaders


COLUMBUS DIDN'T
TURN BACK


Discovering places and things can be pretty
discouraging. When Columbus arrived on this
continent nearly 500 years ago his crew was sick,
disheartened and ready to turn back. Even the
medicines they carried were primitive and not
sufficient to help with their problems.
Another more modern group of explorers are those
who toil in research laboratories, looking for and
testing new drugs. Hopefully, in the not too distant
future more new disease fighting medicines will be
appearing in our pharmacy laboratory.
"A GREAT MANY PEOPLE ENTRUST US with
their prescriptions, health needs and other pharmacy
products. We consider this trust a privilege and a
duty. May we be your personal family pharmacy?

Wewahitchka Gators Loot

the Pirates for 21 Points


The Wewahitchka Gators took
their second straight win last Friday
night, posting a 21-0 shut-out over the
Sneads Pirates. Not only was it the
second win for the Gators, it was the
second district win in as many games,
giving them a perfect slate in District
2-A, putting them in a first place tie
with Chattahoochee.
The Gators started off a little
sluggish, but got on track in the

Close Dec. 1
After 34 years of operation on St.
Joseph's Bay, Presnell's Fish Camp
has become a fixture on the bay and
one of the few places where a person
can launch a boat into the bay to enjoy
its fishing and water adventures.
Presnell's is closing down its
operation December 1 of this year,
because of ill health of B. L. Presnell.
The popular fish camp and boat
launch site has become a popular spot
on St. Joseph's Bay, especially with
.fishermen from outside the Port St.
Joe area who depend on the outlet to
the bay for their water sports each
and every year. Presnelf operates the
only commercial landing and boat
launching site on St. Joseph Bay. The
only other aquatic entrances to the
bay are the public boat ramp at the
west end of Fifth Street in Port St. Joe
and Eagle Harbor inside St. Joseph
Peninsula State Park.

second period, scoring nine points and
went on to score in each of the other
periods.
The Gators ground out 171 yards
in 40 carries while holding the Pirates
to only 43 yards in 20 tries at the stout
Gator line.
The Gator passing game clicked
for 81 more yards, with the Pirates
having their best yard production
through the air with 58 yards.
The Gators' first points came
from the toe of David Paul, who
booted a 30 yarder to give his team the
lead. Paul accounted for the remain-
der of the Gator points in the first half,
snaring a Durand McLeod eight yard
toss for the TD. The kick for extra
point failed.
McLeod connected for two more
scoring passes in the second half,
giving him a night where he connected
only five aerials, but three of them
resulted in touchdowns.
In the third quarter, freshman
Michael Myers tucked in a 13 yarder
for the TD and again in the final
stanza, McLeod found Myers with a
short two yarder to pad the Gator
score. Both kicks for the point after
were wide.

FRIDAY NIGHT
Friday night, the Gators will be
seeking to pad their record against
Charlie Fowler of Panama City
Beach. Game time is at 7:30 p.m., in
Gator stadium.


The Sharks just couldn't put it
together Friday night as Murphy's
law settled in on the visitors' side of
the field. The Pensacola Catholic
Crusaders scored 31 unanswered
points, taking advantage of several
Shark miscues, to blank St. Joe 31-0.
The Crusaders took the opening
kickoff and drove 84 yards in 10 plays
to take the lead 7-0 on the first offen-
sive series of the evening.
The Sharks' David Barnes took
the ensuing kickoff and returned it 47
yards to the Catholic 37 yard line. The
Sharks failed to take advantage of
good field position, turning the ball
over on downs, falling just inches
short on a fourth and two yards to go
effort.
St. Joe's defense answered the
call though as Willie Smith came up
with a big quarterback sack that forc-
ed the Crusaders to punt from their
own 39 yard line.
With St. Joe's Terry Quinn set to
receive the ball in good field position,
things looked promising for the
Sharks. But, as Quinn called for the
fair catch, the ball slipped through his
hands. When the dust settled Catholic
had the ball on the St. Joe 18 yard line.
One 18 yard pass play later and the
Crusaders had increased their lead to
13-0 to conclude the scoring for the
first half.
With 6:36 left in the third quarter
it looked like the Sharks might get
back into the ballgame. St. Joe's
Leonard Ray broke through the
Crusader line to block a punt, which
was covered by the Sharks at the
Catholic 15 yard line. With a fourth
and goal from the five yard line, the
Sharks couldn't put the ball in the end
zone, again giving the ball up on
downs with good field position.
The fourth quarter proved to be
the downfall for Port St. Joe as the
Crusaders went on to score three
touchdowns.
Defensively for the Sharks, Terry
Quinn led all tacklers with 15, David
Williams had 12, Kevin Dawson 10,
Jamie Vathis 9, Willie Smith 7 and
Ivey Henderson 6.

'ranch' is the perfect place for horses
and we are real excited about
bringing the horses to the children".
Community Development VP
Gregg Burch added, "This is a very
popular project with our membership
and we have adopted it as a local
active status program, which means
it is planned twice every year. The
*Florida Jaycees support a large
children's home in south Florida, but
whenever possible we keep our efforts
in the community". The runners and
general public are invited.
The taunton Family Children

great bunch of children and the

Taunton for their efforts and service
to humanity, as the Jaycees' motto is
"Service to humanity is the best work
of life".

greatest influx of new members since
our charter was presented last year".

as non-Jaycees in the past. Also
joining were James Brownell and
Joan Tanner.
The Jaycees signed 15 members

Gymnasts In Meet


Eleven girls from St. Joe Gym-
nastics traveled to the Pensacola
Gymnastics Center in Pensacola to
compete in the 1987 USGF North
Florida Class III and IV first local
sectional and state qualifying meet.
Gymnasts must have an all
around score of 26.00 to qualify for
sectionals in Class IV and a 31.00 to
qualify for state in Class IV. In Class
III gymnasts must score 29.00 for
sectionals and 33.00 for state competi-
tion. Gymnasts have two chances to
qualify for sectionals and state
championships.
Class IV, 7-8 year olds, may
qualify for sectionals but are too
young to qualify for state; USGF rules
state a gymnast must be 9 years of
age to be eligible to qualify for state.
Results are as follows:
Class IV, 12-14 age group, Vivian
Miller qualified for the state meet and
captured first place all around. This is
the fourth year in a row that gymnasts
from St. Joe Gymnastics have cap-
tured first place all around in the
Class IV 12-14 age group in the North
Florida qualifying meets. Miller also


placed second in vault, fourth in bars,
fourth in beam, and fifth in floor.
Andrea McCulley scored a 28.30 all
around which qualified her for the
sectional championships.

Taste, Appearance. Ease of Growing Suited to Florida's Conditions


by Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Agent
It's no wonder strawberries are so
widely grown by home gardeners. In
addition to their taste appeal and
attractive appearance, they're well
suited to Florida conditions. Even
though their multimillion dollar com-
mercial production is limited to just a
few areas, they are grown by
hobbyists throughout the state.
In north and central Florida,
strawberry plants can be set irom
now through mid-November. When
winter comes, the cool nights and
short days will cause the plants to
begin flowering. Flowers formed after
the last killing frost of early winter
will develop into fruit.
Berry production and harvest
continue throughout the spring. As the
weather gets warmer and the days
grow longer, the plants will stop
producing berries and form runners.
These runners will take root, and
become new plants. However, most
homeowner gardeners destroy such


ROY LEE CARTER

plants. and start over again in the fall.


Although strawberries can be
grown in just about any type Florida
soil, they don't do well in peat or muck
soils. Strawberries like a well-drained
soil. which is moist but not wet. So,
sandy soil with plenty of organic
matter is best.
It's important to plant strawberry
varieties which have proven them-
selves under Florida conditions, var-
ieties such as Dover and Florida
Belle. They yield large fruit, and are
resistant to a common plant disease
called anthracnose. Other varieties
well adapted to our state are Florida
90. Tioga. and Sequoia.
Strawberries should be planted in
raised beds. which are two feet wide
and spaced two feet apart. The beds
should be mounded, so they're six
inches high along the edges and about
eight inches high in the middle.
For ten-by-ten foot strawberry
patch, broadcast about two and a half
pounds of 8-8-8 or 10-10-10 fertilizer
and work it into the soil. Then, form
the beds in the manner I've described,


and apply another 2/2 pounds of
fertilizer. This time, place the fertil-
izer in a narrow band about six inches
deep in the middle of each bed. During
the first season of strawberry produc-
tion, include a complete mixture of
minor elements in the fertilizer
application.
After the beds have been properly
formed, fertilized, and very well
moistened, cover each with a sheet of
1'2 nil black polyethylene plastic the
recommended mulch for strawberries
in Florida. Place soil on the edge of
the plastic to hold it in place. Then, cut
slits in the plastic where the plants are
to be inserted. The plants should be
set in double rows one on each side of
the raised bed, about six inches from
the edges. Space the plants 12 inches
apart in the rows: Be sure that no
plants are set directly over the
fertilizer band, because this can lead
to salt burn.
Always start with certified, dis-
ease-free plants. Keep them moist
before planting and plant them in
moist soil.

MINUTES.

Peters made a good point regarding
users may be exempt from taxes, but
not when paying a mandatory pickup
fee instead.
The Chairman inquired if the
Road Superintendent had ordered the
Doc Whitfield road sign. The Superin-
tendent replied no. The Chairman
requested he order two large signs to
be placed at both ends of the road
(Howard's Creek).
Upon report of the Administrative
Assistant on the availability, Peters
moved the Administrative Assistant
research the Governor's Energy
Office offering monies for landfill
expenses. Money seconded the motion
and it passed unanimously.
The Administrative Assistant re-
ported, the Fire Marshall has ap-
proved verbally the county has met all
requirement of the State Fire Mar-
shall concerning county jail.
The Chairman requested two
letters be entered in the minutes. A
copy of the letters is on file in the
Clerk's office.
Upon the Administrative Assist-
ant's report the Department of
Environmental Regulation is request-
ing $16,250 for testing for Closure of
the St. Joe Landfill, the Attorney
stated the St. Joe Landfill was closed
prior to new regulations (old regula-
tions not as stringent). The Chairman
asked the Attorney contact the
Department of Environmental Regu-
lation concerning this as the closure
plan was submitted under the old
regulations.
,V Upon request of the Administra-
tive Assistant, the Board agreed to a
letter of concurrence to the Apalachee
Regional Planning Council for Eco-
nomic Development Funds.
The Administrative Assistant re-
ported the Howard's Creek Fire
Department is requesting to be placed
on the Division of Forestry's waiting
list for another fire truck. The
Chairman stated he had no objection
if the department had funds to pay
this expense, discussing a truck the
White City Fire Department pur-
chased, which is being paid for by the
Board, not the Department. The
Board discussed this needs to be
researched. Birmingham reported
Traylor had asked him to contact

intention of the county paying for the
truck (paid through department funds
from fire district only) and he didn't
think there needed to be any Board
action at this time.
Upon motion by Peters, second by
Money, and unanimous vote, the
Board approved the Civil Defense
Director Administrative Assistant's
request to advertise to receive bids to
purchase one IBM PC AT Computer
for his office, to be paid from his
department's budgeted funds.
Following research report of the
Attorney, Birmingham moved the
Board request the Attorney write the
U.S. Corps of Engineers, explaining
due to the economic situation of the
county aqd bther problems, Gulf
County is unable to provide the
service requested (letter of intent
reaffirming county commitment to
provide easements, etc. for mainten-
ance dredging of the Apalachicola
River). Money seconded the motion
and it passed unanimously.
Attorney Rish presented an
agreement with Equal Employment
Opportunity Commission for execu-
tion (previously approved by Board).
The Board received a letter from
T.H. Stone State Park Manager
James Mock, formally requesting
mosquito spraying specific areas of
the park (entrance drive, shop area,
camping areas one and two, picnic
areas, residence areas, and cabins),
as requested by the Board prior to
considering approval (State previous-
ly prohibited county equipment to
spray in the park). Money moved the
Board approve this request. Peters
seconded the motion. The Chairman
stated without the state paying for this
service, he would vote no, due to
county taxpayers paying. Peters
withdrew his second. Birmingham
stated he wasn't against spraying, but
every time the county needed some-
thing from the state, the county had to
pay a fee (permits, a service, etc.)
and the state should pay for this
service. The motion died for lack of a
second. Upon Money's request, the
Board agreed to write Mock the Board
had no objection to mosquito spraying
areas of the park, provided a fee was
paid. Money requested the Deputy
i Clerk write this letter.
There being no further business,
the meeting adjourned.
