$2.3 Million Apartment Complex Slated for Gulf
Gainesville Developer Starts Work On 51 Units for Port St. Joe and 24 Units In Wewahitchka
Two Gainesville corporations will begin
work within the next few days on a $2.3 million
apartment complex for Gulf County, which will,
include 75 units, according to Ron Waters, a
spokesman for the firms.
Waters said construction should begin on
the Port St. Joe complex within the next day or
two after requirements can be agreed upon
with the City of Port St. Joe. and in
Wewahitchka in a short period of time. Waters
said 51 of the new units will be built in Port St.
Joe and 24 units in Wewahitchka.
All the apartment units are designed for
medium income family occupancy, but there
are no rental subsidy units available. "We are
building these units under a Farmers Home
Administration plan which provides low
interest loans for developers who will make
certain stipulations in rentals, but there is no
rental subsidies paid", a spokesman in the
Gainesville office of Davis and Sons told The
Davis and Sons is the builder of the
complex, but they will be owned and managed
'by Pine Ridge, Ltd., here in Port St. Joe and by
Wewahitchka, Ltd., in Wewahitchka.
The Port St. Joe units will be built on south
Garrison Avenue, across from the old St.
Joseph Cemetery. The construction site is not
in the city limits of Port St. Joe. The city limit
line at that point is just north of the
In Wewahitchka, the development will be
on Highway 71 south, directly across the
highway from Harden's Circle: The same
rental criteria will be applied to the Wewa-
Both developments will-be of brick veneer
structure and include most of the amenities of
apartment living including carpeting, drapes,
air conditioning, ntral heat, appliances, etc.
The two developYnents will both have
playground areas for children to play. The
grounds will be completely landscaped and
both installations will have an on-site manager
living on the premises for security and
The Gainesville spokesman told The Star
construction is expected to take about six
months once the actual building gets under way
in both cities.
Here in Port St. Joe, Waters was to meet
with the City of Port St. Joe and its engineers,
Smith and Gillespie, Wednesday morning to
iron out requirements for attaching to Port St.
Joe water and sewer services. Facilities are in
the vicinity, where they were expanded last
year to serve the new subdivision opened on
Marvin and Garrison avenues last year. The
services are just north and west of the
apartment complex, but engineers still must
determine if the new complex can simply tie on
to the new expansion or most they be required
to send their service lines all the way to a 20th
Waters said as soonA as that question is
settled, they will begin work on building. Both
developments will install their own sanitary
service lines and attach them to city services.
Board Utters A Sigh of Relief
Financial Picture Brightens Up Considerably
Gulf County's School Board and
Superintendent Walter Wilder are
breathing a little easier these days.
Ever since the state-wide attack on
the new services sales tax'had caused
the State Education Department to
threaten a severe cut-back in financ-
ing for the current year from state
income sources, .the Board 'has been
concerned about their position.
As a result of the state-wide fund
reduction threatby the Department of
Education, Gulf County stood to lose
some $350,000 if the.slash in contribu-
tions was put into force. "They told us
that ifthe services tax was repealed
S anid ;nothing replaced it, we could
expect.to have our income reduced on
:a state level by this amount", Wilder
Even though the cut in funds was
never' put in force, the uilf County
School Board has been operating as if
it were, ever since the first of their
current fiscal year. "We have held
spending to the bare necessities,
waiting to see what was going :to
happen. We didn't want to get caught
in a bind this early in the fiscal year",
-Wilder pointed out.
Actually, Gulf County has re-
ceived funds as promised the first of
the year. Wilder said the board was
assured in the last few days that Gulf
,County will continue to receive funds
as promised. "As long as we maintain
our projected average daily attend-
ance, we'll receive our state money
just as planned", .Wilder said.
"'We're breathing easier now, but
we had already set a program in
motion to cope with the shortfall if it
should come", he pointed.out.
In their regular meeting, held in
the Wewahitchka High School "last-
week, the Board: i
--Considered resumption of thq
school bus route to Stone Mill Creek!,
The route was interrupted recently!
when a state DOT report said a bridge
crossing the creek was unsafe fori,
heavier vehicles. The bridge has since
been repaired and the .Board will
study the final reports on the bridge
prior to resuming the route.
-Adopted further state policy as
county policy in such matters as state
regulations for vehicle safety belts,
workman's, compensation, organiza-
tion of the administration staff- and
other minor changes.
-Passed a resolution commend-.

Clerk Says Delay In 'Payments Pinches Pocket
City Auditor and Clerk Alden
Farris advised the City Commission
Tuesday night that cash is beginning
to get short in the city bank account
and they need to be aware of the
"We're not running over budget,
but our tax money receipts, have not
yet started coming in", Farris said.
'It looks like it night be the middle of
January at least before we begin
taking in any tax money", he pointed
Tax notices were late this year
because of adhering to state rules and
.regulations, so tax money which
normally comes in during the month
of November'won't be here until the
middle of January.
Farris poipted out going two
months withoutptax income can put a
strain on municipal finances. "I don't
think we'll have to borrow any
money", he said, "But we're going to
have to be aware of the situation".
Even if the city should be forced
to borrow operational funds, Farris
said the city has'funds from which it
could make temporary loans.
The city has made at least one
major purchase early this year, ard
has. two more planned for the first
quarter of the current fiscal year.
Recently a new fire truck was
contracted for, but Farris pointed out
the city will pay only $28,000., on
delivery of the truck, with other,
payment deferred to a later date, The
new truck is scheduled to be delivered
around the first of the calendar year.
Tuesday night, the Commission
took specifications for a new street
sweeper and hopes to get the
purchasing system under way in just
a (ew days on the new unit. Mayor
Frank Pate also pointed out that one
of the garbage trucks needs to be
replaced and the Commission needs to
take bids at an early date. .
Farris pointed out there would be
ample ready cash for the city's needs
once tax payments started coming in,
but right now, things are close and the
City needs to keep a close watch on its
It costs approximately $300,000
per month for city operations, includ-
ing the Wastewater Treatment Plant.
The WWP operation takes nearly two
thirds of the city's operational funds,
but the source of income for this'
operation is borne mostly by St. Joe
Forest Products Company. This
means the City must still come up
with about $125,000 each month to pay
In other items of business Tues-
day night, the Commission:
-Agreed to clean up the property
on Avenue C formerly occupied by a
two story building which burned
recently, taking the lives of three-'
people. The property will be cleaned
up by the city and a lien taken against
the property to coyer the expense.
-Agreed to close down City
operations on December 23, 24 and 25
during the week of Christmas. All
vital services will have someone on
call during the holidays.
-Agreed to call for bids to place
new baffles in the WWP settling pond
at an estimated $300,000.
-Take a request under consider-

Gulf County's Commission will
probably receive a definite presenta-
tion for installation of a 911 emergen-
cy telephone system by their second
meeting in January.
A meeting between administra-
tive assistant and St. Joseph Tele-
phone and Telegraph Company execu-
tives late last week discussed the
matter at length and ended in the
telephone company agreeing to turn
in a proposal by January 15 for the
According to Linda Bordelon, the
phone company executive, "We will
present a plan for a basic emergency
call service and then define options
which could be added in the future".
Bordelon said she is to have the
quotation to Wells prior to January 15.
The Boaird meets on January 8 and
January 22. Wells has been charged
by the Commission to get the
proposals for the county.
Wells was out of town and
unavailable for comment, but Borde-
lon said the meeting between the
phone company and Wells was very
productive. "We came to an agree-
ment on what was available and what
could be done", she said. The
Commission has been a little foggy
about the possibilities of 911 in the
past, a condition which prompted
them to send Wells after some factual
Bordelon said laws now allow up
to 50 cents per month to be charged
'each telephone outlet to pay for the
service, which would provide one
single number throughout the county
for summoning emergency aid.
Bordelon has indicated the county
can get into the basic system for a
minimum expenditure, all of which
would be paid for by the 50 cents per
month charge against the telephone.
"We've been asked to price some
extras to the system as well",
The basic system would provide a
direct line to the Gulf County Sheriff's
dispatch office by dialing 911 from any
phone in Gulf County. The proper
emergency service would be dialed
automatically from the Sheriff's
Dispatch station for response.
"Extras would include a system
to automatically identify the number
calling into the 911 system. A third
option would be a system to automati-
cally identify and locate the calling
number, add identification of resi-
dents of dwellings all over the county
and identify any special problems
such as invalids in the home, special
health problems, etc.
"All of these services could well
benefit our people, but the Commis-
sion may well decide some of them
are too expensive for our small
county", Bordelon said.
The phone company department
head said if the County agrees on a 911
emergency system in the first quarter
of the new year, it will be in place and
operating prior to the year's end.
"That is, if they don't go for the more
enhanced systems, which I don't look
for them to do. If so, equipment for
those systems can take a while to
secure and get installed", she said.
Bordelon pointed out the county
could start with the basic set-up and
add enhancements in the future as
they become able to do so without
having to trash equipment already
purchased. "It's an add-on type
system, not a replacement type",
Wells had already indicated, to
The Star he would be providing the
county with any information he
received just as soon as it became
FIFTIETH YEAR, NUMBER 16
Editorials and Comments
PAGE TWO THURSDAY, DECEMBER 17,1987
We're more than satisfied now that the County Commission
is taking concrete steps to get the 911 emergency number
placed into service here in Gulf County. Now that everyone in
the United States lives, breathes, pays taxes, buys laundry soap
and even mixes paint by numbers, numbers to call for help in
times of an emergency should be a top priority with all of us.
With all the numbers one must remember or have at his
instant recall at all times any more, it's an easy thing for the
emergency numbers one needs to get lost in the shuffle. In
times of high stress, anxiety and excitement it doesn't take
much more than a reflex to remember that all we have to do is
dial 911 and then babble our problems to a calm dispatcher who
will handle it all for us.
We remember back in the days when one made phone calls
through a telephone operator. If one had a problem, a fire, a
burglar or the need for medical services, that person had need
of only picking up the phone receiver and telling the operator of
his or her difficulty and the operator would do the work.
In effect, the 911 system being examined by our
commissioners is very much akin to the old telephone operator
type emergency service we abandoned years ago.
Tentative plans here in Gulf County are to channel all
emergency calls through the Sheriff' dispatching department,
since it is manned constantly, with the dispatcher summoning
the proper help in times of distress.
Of course, it isn't simple. There's electronics involved.
There's automatic phone dialing involved. There are other
electronics to assist that dispatcher in turning your call in to the
proper emergency service in a blink of an eye. This
sophisticated equipment will cost a little bit of money, but the
cost will be less than a soft drink per month for each telephone
subscriber for a little more than a year. Then, the cost will be
reduced considerably after the initial equipment purchase is
We can see nothing but asset in the proposal to provide the
911 system for our county and we hope the Commission moves
ahead with all haste on this matter.
Keep ne Eye Open
Premiere Gorbachev has been here and gone back to
Russia by now. He has had his meeting with President Reagan
and agreed to certain principals regarding nuclear missiles and
signed his name to documents which both leaders say is a step
toward peace. ... ..
We desperately want to believe all is sweetness and light
between us and the Russians-at least for the time being-but it
is with a skeptical heart and mind we consider the
ramifications of the agreement.
Apparently, from what we read and see about the summit
meeting held in Washington last week, we are not alone in
harboring this skepticism: Even President Reagan, who met
with Gorbachev and dealt with him eyeball to eyeball, has
seemed to adopt a "we'll See how this thing Works out" attitude.
Glasnost or no Glasnost, 80 years of experience has shown
us we had better not turn our backs on the Russians, in spite of
all the bleeding hearts say. Even when one comes with a
smiling face and a soft, friendly voice we see it as no time to
be lulled into foolish relaxation. We should still sleep with one
eye open for a while.
Keeping Christ In Christmas
It's only seven more days until Christmas when you read
this and time to get in the mood of the season if you have not
already done so. We see shoppers filling the streets and stores
these days. Wouldn't it be a good seasonal tribute if we were all
to focus our attention on going to church Sunday?

One Christmas I got a BB gun. It
was the Red Ryder model. And I'm
sure it was made by the Daisy people.

And you dusted him with the gun that
Red Ryder had given you. As you well
know the Lone Ranger and Red Ryder
were the best of friends. I think Tonto

This was the first Christmas that I
had finally straightened out the Santa
Claus thing. You know, that only
made Christmas better. My parents
weren't much on guns. But I wanted a
BB gun. They somehow scraped up
the $12.95 and purchased a gift that
neither one liked or wanted or cared if
I had or not. They simply got it for me
because they understood that it was
something I wanted. I tell you what -

THE CHRISTMAS SEASON is a
time which is synonymous with cheer,
right? We all think good thoughts
'during the Christmas season, don't
we? We try to forget our grudges, we
smile a lot and try to be pleasant all
day every day, at least until the old
Santa character has made his run-eor
slide-down the chimney.
The Christmas season definitely
isn't a time for old grudges to abound
and proliferate. Bury the hatchet. Pull
out the glassnost. Turn up the merry
music. Fight the crowds and buy those
gifts for your loved ones. That's the
natural thing to do at Christmas time.
If Christmas didn't come along
every 365 days, there are some people
around us who would never smile or

I WAS LOOKING through the
paper the other day and I came across
an advertisement for a movie which is
being released here at the Christmas
season which is billed as a comedy. I
was watching part of Johnny Carson
Friday night and he had the star of
this movie on his show, interviewing
The name of the movie is "Throw
Momma From the Train", and the
star being interviewed was Billy
Both Johnny and Billy just kept
going on and on about how humorous
this movie was. Crystal gushed for
five minutes about how much fun he
had making the movie and how
pleased he was it was being released
during the Christmas season.
I don't know whether it was the
lateness of the hour or if I just don't

Any Humor In Pushing
have the correct sense of humor .or
'gaiety to go along with a proper
Christmas spirit, but I couldn't see the
humor in throwing momma or anyone
else from a train.
I would never have considered
throwing my momma from a train,
even after she had given me one of
those hidings she could administer so
expertly with a keen switch or the
leather strap which hung behind the
kitchen door for all the 18 years.I lived
Even as a prank, and even though
momma had just dropped the switch
from exhaustion, I don't believe I
could manage to conjure up a belly
laugh, or even a giggle, from throwing
momma from a train.
It all seems so brutal to me.
Admittedly, I have not seen the
movie. Likely the title loses some-
thing in the translation which I'm just
not getting through my thick head.
I UNDERSTAND these days we
have our sick humor, our bedroom
comedy, our sex farces, our black
humor, our hidden humor, our raun-
chy humor, Richard Pryor and Joan
Rivers "to contend with. Why do we
need to throw momma from a train?
Considering the outside possibility
that we do throw momma from a
train, are we expected to laugh about
I COULD HAVE started off on this
piece in too much haste, however. I
may be drawing the wrong conclusion
about this being a fit and proper film
for the holiday season.
Maybe I should have gone to see
the movie before casting any hasty
judgment about its content. From the
title, though, I know I wouldn't like it.
If these movie types are like the news
types, their title or headline is
designed to make a person want to see
more, not less.
It could be that throwing momma
from a train was an act of mercy.
Maybe she had an incurable disease.
Maybe the character Crystal plays
wanted momma to get off the train
and spend Christmas with her six
small children rather than chase off to
the big city to mix and mingle with the
Maybe the only way Crystal could
get her off the train was to have the
conductor throw her off for not buying
I kind of doubt it, though, because
advertisements for this very same
supposedly comical movie have
abounded on television here lately and
Crystal and Danny DeVito (every bit
as funny as Richard Pryor, if you like
that kind of so-called humor) make a
deal to murder one's wife if the other
will toss momma from a train.

Probably the most fun I had with

Some Infamous Quotes
AT ONE TIME I HAD a book filled with unusual quotes that I had
written down over a period of several years. There were quotes I had read
in books and papers, some from movies that I thought were unusual or
funny and some I overheard from strangers or friends.
In the process of moving about fifteen times, I lost the book. I do,
however, remember a few of the more profound and funny ones. Below
are a few bf my favorites and although they may not be completely
accurate, word for word, I think you'll agree that the message is there.
-"Naw. Buzzards gotta eat, too." Clint Eastwood in a movie when he
was asked if he was going to bury about ten outlaws he had just killed.
-"I'd like to buy the world a coke but I ain't got that much money."
Bill Bendle in a bar in Knoxville, Tennessee.

told the Kiwanis Club Tuesday his'
company has started on a project of
making Gulf Pines into a first class
emergency medical center, providing:
advanced life support ambulance
support to its service -area.
Fitzgerald also pointed out the
hospital is being equipped with both
facilities and trained personnel to
provide first rate medical care for the
Port St. Joe area. "We know the
specialties and the severe medical
problems will still go to the medical
. centers, but our facilities are being
geared to provide top rate medical
.care in the realm of the suburban
hospital", Fitzgerald said.
The new administrator pointed
out that hospital care started chang-

Burton funds started to dry up and
government controls stepped in to
dominate the care program. "Many

small hospitals were either county or
city owned up to that time and just
went to the tax payer when they
needed more money to operate on.
Now, these hospitals are being taken
over by private concerns, after
operations were largely given up by
tax levying bodies."
Fitzgerald said the local hospital
has three goals to reach in just a very
short time. "One; we're going to
enlarge and up-grade our emergency
facilities. We'll donate four times the
room to emergency service as in the
past. Two; We are recruiting' an
in-house physician to provide a
trained doctor for hospital service on
a round-the-clock basis. In the past,
this has been provided on an on-call
basis. Three; We are enlarging our
laboratory, This is necessary to
provide the services we are trying to
offer and, to adequately meet the

The Sharks put together a strong
first quarter against the Tornadoes to
trail by only two points at the half
time rest period. The first quarter has
been the weakest point in the Shark
game thus far in the young season.
The Tornadoes thought they were
on the Kansas plains in the second
half, whipping up a strong 62 points to
suck the Sharks up in their funnel.
Even so, the Sharks had a
respectable number on the points on
the board: the Tornadoes just had 29
more when the dust settled.
The Tornadoes had three men
scoring in double figures, led by
Rhondie Ross with 24.
The Sharks had only one player-
Curtis Beard, shooting in double
figures. Beard bucketed 32 points to
lead both teams in scoring.

A Holiday Poinsettia Can be Appreciated All Year Long
by Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Agent
Poinsettias and Christmas go
together especially here in Florida.
The poinsettia's bright red bracts and
dark green foliage gives this plant a
festive appearance, which is especial-
ly appreciated during the holidays. In
this article I will discuss what to look
for when buying poinsettias, and how
to care for them indoors, in pots, or as
Poinsettias have become very
popular throughout the country as
symbols of Christmas. As a Floridian,
you have the widest selection of
. poinsettia varieties from which to
choose. If you plan to buy a poinsettia
this year, you will want to know what
to look for, and how to care for your
purchase after you get it home. My
information on poinsettias was pro-
vided by Extension Horticulture spe-
cialist Dr. Robert J. Black.
When shopping for a poinsettia,
look for several things. Be sure the
plant has green foliage almost to the
soil line. A plant which has lost most
of its foliage at the bottom is probably
getting old. Of course, factors such as
sudden temperature changes, soil
pests, and insects also can cause leaf
drop. A good supply of lower leaves is
a basic key to a healthier, as well as a
The showy parts, which most
people call flowers, aren't flowers at
all. They're special kinds of leaves,
called bracts. These should be large
enough to extend well beyond the
ROY LEE CARTER
lower green foliage, and they should
be brightly colored. The most popular
poinsettia color is red. But you also
can find numerous shades of pink,
white and other color combinations.
The real poinsettia flowers are
small green and yellow clusters
growing in the center of the bracts.
You should select a plant with small,
green underdeveloped flower parts. If
a poinsettia already has open, yellow
flowers, a good portion of the plant's
display life is over and the bracts soon
will begin to fade.
Poinsettias are native to the
warmer, humid regions of Mexico. So,
potted poinsettias need special care.
As house plants, poinsettias should be
located where they enjoy uniform
temperature of 60 to 75 degrees
farenheit during the day, and about 60
degrees at night. They also should
receive bright light, but not direct
sun. Avoid areas subject to drafts.

sudden temperature changes low
humidity and dim light.
If you have poinsettias in your
landscape, you'll probably use them
as cut flowers, to brighten your
home's holiday decor. To keep the
bracts from wilting, the stem ends
should be singed to coagulate the
milky sap and prevent its loss. Also, it
helps to "condition" poinsettias, by

Cleaning Up A Dirty Word
By: Wayne T. DeWitt, C.P.A.
A little tax planning before year's
end could possibly result in consider-
able tax savings. This is especially
important for 1987 and 1988 because of
the changes in the tax law brought
about by the passage of the Tax
Reform Act of 1986.
While there is not a single plan for
all taxpayers, there is a general
approach to year-end planning. First
determine your tax bracket for 1987
and 1988. Then, for the year with the
higher tax bracket postpone income to
the next year and accelerate deducti-
ble expenses into this year.,
For example, assume that your
1987 aggrgketriyew t -higlgr than
your .988 racket. You should post-
ponel receiving income as much as
possible until 1988. This, of course, has
to be income you can control such as
self-employment, bonuses,:. sale of
property, rents; etc. Plan to collect
this income the first of January, 1988,
instead of the latter part of December,

normally pay in January or even later
in 1988. Deductions that you can pay
now include charitable contributions,
property taxes, unpaid medical bills,
business expenses, etc. This will
result in a lower taxable income in the
year with the higher tax bracket and
the income you postponed to 1988 will
be subject to a lower tax rate. Also,
anytime you can postpone the tax on
income it is the same as an interest
free loan from the government.
Certainly, your economic factors may
influence the extent to which you can
-if you are a taxpayer that comes
close but just never have quite enough
deductions to itemize, you can use this
method of grouping your deductible
expenses and probably be -able to
itemize your deductions every other
year, A deduction often overlooked
which. could make a difference is the
contribution of items of a qualified
charitable organization. So on or
before December 31, donate all of
your surplus used clothing, furniture,
and-other items and remember to get
a receipt. This will be tax savings to
you and also will help these worthy

On Thursday, December lo, me
students at Port St. Joe Elementary
School were exposed to some real
reasons to Just Say No to Drugs.
An entertaining and informative
puppet presentation was given by Lisa
Ray and Glynn Keyes from the First
United Methodist Church.
The intermediate grades heard a
most impressive talk by Billy Stanley,
who for seventeen years had an
addiction to alcohol and drugs. After
winning his battle over alcohol and
drug abuse, he is talking to young
people about the hazards of this abuse
and its prevention.
Stanley is a step-brother (one of
three) of Elvis Presley. At the age of
seven, he began to live at Graceland,
Sheriff Al Harrison, Chief of
Police Carl Richter and school board
member, James Hanlon talked to all
the students about the importance of
Just Saying No.
The intermediate Student Council
representatives and officers gave a
rap for both groups.
A special "thank you" to Mrs.
Fay Wood and Mrs. Charlotte Pierce
for their efforts in organizing these
programs for us.
In addition to Port St. Joe Elemen-
tary, Stanley presented programs at
Highland View Elementary and Port
St. Joe High School.
