Board Told It Must Inspect Buildings for Asbestos


Up to $50,000 Price Tag On Project: Material Was Replaced with Approved Insulator Six Years Ago


Gulf County's School Board was informed Tuesday
afternoon they must plan on spending up to $50,000 to
inspect a job which was done nearly six years ago.
Temple Watson, administrative assistant for the Board
said the federal government has advised the county the
district must inspect every building it owns to see how
effective an asbestos replacement program back in 1982
had been in eradicating asbestos danger from the buildings.
"We must have specially trained architects or
engineers to make the inspection", Watson said. He pointed
out the architect or engineer chosen must attend special
preparation instructions in eith' Atlanta or Orlando in
order to qualify as a government-4pproved inspector. "The
best estimate we have is that is going to cost Gulf County
three cents per square foot to have the inspection done".
Superintendent Walter Wilder told the Board the Port
St. Joe High School alone, had more than 100,000 square feet


under its roof. "This could get real expensive", Wilder said.
"From $30,000 to $50,000 is the closest estimate we can come
up with", Watson said.
The administrator pointed out that the district is faced
with a $25,000 per day federal fine if the inspection is not
made. Watson said his office is currently talking with a
boiler installation and service firm to see if they have
personnel qualified to make the inspection.
In 1981 and 1982, all asbestos was removed from all Gulf
County school buildings and replaced with an acceptable
insulation material at a cost of approximately $300,000, also
on directions from the federal government. Asbestos was
declared a hazardous material at the time.
Watson informed the Board that they must have a plan
submitted for having the inspection made by October or
face the levy of the fine.


ALL SCHOOLS ACCREDITED
All five Gulf County schools have been accredited by
the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools,
Superintendent Walter Wilder reported at the Tuesday
meeting of the School Board.
"All our schools have been accredited for the past 14 or
15 years by this agency which inspects all schools in the
southeastern states for academic accomplishments",
Wilder said. He went on to point out, "We're inspected by
the Southern Association every year to see if we are still
meeting their strict standards in the classroom and the
curriculum", the Superintendent said.
SYSTEM OUT OF COMPLIANCE
Board chairman, Waylon Graham said he had been
notified recently that the Gulf County system is not in
compliance with a federal guideline which relates to staff


balance.
"We're not meeting the guidelines in teachers and
aides", Temple Watson added. Watson was explicit to spell
out his word when he said, "That's spelled A-I-D-E-S!"
Graham said, "We are in compliance racially
throughout the system. We don't have the right number of
gender mix in our teachers and aides. We have too many
women and not enough men", he said.
The board took no steps to get rid of some of the women
staff members and replace them with men.
"It's hard to come up with men teachers and aides",
Graham said.
In other business, the Board voted to take a more
up-to-date look at their policy for assisting with school
annual publications. The Board also adopted personnel
changes recommended by the State Department of
Education.


City Accepts Bid On


Extensive Repairs to


Sewer Main System


Thie City Commission formally
accepted the low bid "of Parker's
Mechanical Contractors, Inc., to do a
major sewer rehabilitation project
here in Port St. Joe Tuesday night.
Parker Mechanical had their bid
of $212,687 accepted and the firm was
approved by the city's engineering
firm, Smith and Gillespie of Jackson-
ville.
The work is to correct several
sewer collection main problems which
were revealed in a television camera
inspection of all city mains last
spring.
The project is expected to correct
most of the problem areas in the
collection system as well as prevent.
major infiltration of ground water into
the city's treatment facilities.
The city is eligible for a $155,850
federal grant to-elan-#p -the poten-
tially polluting problem, to apply
< against the $212,687 repair price tag.
Pre-construction meetings will be
held with Parker' Mechanical next
week and work on the rehabilitation,


project is expected to begin in about 30
days.
Most of the repair projects are
located in the older section of Port St.
Joe; north of Eighth Street and along
Garrison Avenue.
In other business items, the
Commission received a letter from
the Gulf County School Board to
advise them the Ward Ridge City Hall
building was fully covered by insur-
ance. The School Board is using the
building for office space.
Heard a report of a hazardous
condition at the dead end of Clifford
Sims Drive, where no sign is present
warning of the dead end.
Commissioner James B. Roberts
suggested the police patrolmen be
quipped with some sort of signal
device to attach to street lights which
ne. ere4Jir whjilJthejymake lheii
rounds on patrol. The system would "
pin-point lights which weren't func-
tioning so they could be repaired.
Police Chief Carl Richter said he
would implement such a system
immediately.


Pre-Trial Matters Flood

Gulf's Session of Circuit

Court Monday Morning


One of the most crowded days in
court ever to face the legal system in
Gulf County was experienced the
beginning of this week in Circuit
Court.
Pre-trial matters were taken care
of in some 70 cases, in addition to 20
arraignments being handed down.
According to Assistant State's
Attorney, Fred Witten, the busy day in
court involved several defendants
who faced multiple charges. "There
weren't that many people involved, as
some had two or three charges to their
credit", Witten said.
Many of the 20 arraignments were
several of the defendants rounded up
in recent crack cocaine arrests made
during the past month. Many of the
defendants entered guilty pleas and


,were released for sentencing later and
final actions taken. "I was .amazed so
many of them entered gubty pleas.
We were prepared to go to court in
every case", Sheriff Al Harrison said.
Witten said there will be five
defendants going to trial on January
19, when Circuit Court will go into its
winter session here in Port St. Joe.
Judge Dee Dee Costello will be
presiding.
Of the unusually large number of
defendants and charges answered at
the preliminary proceedings Monday,
five were juveniles facing charges,
three had their cases postponed and
six must face probation hearings.
The majority of the cases will be
held in February or March sessions of
court.


MIarina Project



Proposed for



Peninsula
'-*
For the second time in less than a month, a
sizeable real estate development has been -i
publicly revealed for the Port St. Joe area.
Tuesday, it was announced by Langdon -i C3
Flowers of the Flowers Baking Company family,
that he Was going to file for permits to construct A
a multi-million dollar marina and convention
"complex on St. Joseph's Peninsula on a 113.1 Ts- -u
acre piece of property, formerly owned by the
late George G. Tapper. Locally, the development
area is known as "Tapper's Hole".
If Flowers is successful in ecduring his C.
permits, he would be accomplishing something
boating enthusiasts have wanted to see .happen C t
on St. Joseph Bay for at least the past 30 years. .
Flowers-who is also the developer of
Barrier Dunes, the premiere development on the '-'

ranged to build the marina./
The development would stretch along the a 0
shore of St. Joseph Bay for a quarter mile.
Flowers owns some 41.1 acres of property at the -
site, and 72 acres of submerged land. "The state -
still has permitting power on the submerged a "
land, but it is outside the Aquatic Preserve .
designation which covers much of that portion of ...
the bay", Fowers said. He pointed out that their .
development must meet all. stringent state ,i
demands for any operation on the water and C i
would be closely supervised by state environ- '...
mentalists and ecologists. '
Flowers said his firm is now gathering up Q I
local support and endorsements for the marina .
operation. "We need it to help get the permits we .
will have to have", the developer said. ..
Flowers admits that permits won't be easy ** .. .
to get. "We'll have to follow very strict C I LI
guidelines and be closely monitored, but I think D '
we can get them if we can go armed with a desire .
of the people of this area to have a marina on the '

Arson Ruled Out In School Bus Fire


Fire completely gutted one of the
Gulf County School system's school
buses Friday afternoon.
Police Chief Carl Richter said
Tuesday, an extensive investigation
into how the blaze started still has not
completely resolved the question.
"We have almost definitely ruled out'
arson in the matter", Chief Richter
said. "It appears to be a matter of
some very young children either
playing with matches or playing with


fireworks", Richter said.
The bus was parked on Main
Street between Avenue F and G,
where it is normally parked when not
in use. Chief Richter said children
normally play in and around the
parked bus, according to reports.
The fire was reported at 4:05 and
fire department officials say the
entire interior of the bus was
destroyed by the blaze.
Richter said an investigation by


the state fire marshal determined the
fire started in the seat section about
two rows behind the driver seat.
Chris Earley, transportation di-
rector for the Gulf County school
district said there is still a question of
whether the bus will be repaired or
junked. "It's a 1979 model vehicle and
it will cost approximately $50,000 to
replace it, but our insurance company
may determine it is more costly to
repair than it is worth", Earley said.

throughout the county during the

Needed to Know Hunker Down with Kes


(It is seldom the words in this space in The Star are penned
by anyone other than the editor of this newspaper. This past
week, one of our suppliers sent this piece as an introduction to
the new year. We share it with you here. -Ed)


Most of what I really need to know about how to live, and
what to do, and how to be, I learned in kindergarten. Wisdom
was not at the top of the graduate school mountain, but there in
the sandbox at nursery school.
There are the things I learned: Share everything. Play fair.
Don't hit people. Put things back where you found them. Clean
up your own mess. Don't take things that aren't yours. Say
you're sorry when you hurt somebody. Wash your hands before
you eat. Flush. Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you.
Live a balanced life. Learn some and think some and draw and
paint and sing and dance and play and work every day some.
Take a nap every afternoon. When you go out into the world,
watch for traffic, hold hands and stick together. Be aware of
wonder. Remember the little seed in the plastic cup. The roots
go down and the plant goes up and nobody really knows how or
why, but we are all like that.
Goldfish and hamsters and white mice and even the little
seed in the plastic cup-they all die. So do we.
And then remember the book about Dick and Jane and the
first word you learned, the biggest word of all: LOOK.
Everything you need to need to know is in there somewhere.
The Golden Rule and love and basic sanitation, ecology and
politics and sane living.
Think of what a better world it would be if we all-the whole
world-had cookies and milk about 3 o'clock every afternoon
and then lay down with our blankets for a nap. Or if we had a
basic policy in our nation and other nations to always put things
back where we found them and clean up our own messes. And it
is still true; no matter how old you are, when you go out into the
world, it is best to hold hands and stick together.



Holding Hands

Holding hands is what the Arab nations are currently trying
to get their brother nations to do right now. After two of the
nations, the Iranians and Iraqi's have started shooting at each
other and the rest of the world, the rest of the Arab nations are
now calling on the United Nations to send a task force to the
Persian Gulf to stop the wanton attacks against every ship
which enters that body of water.
The United States, and to a lesser degree, the Italians,
French and Britain, have tried patrolling and guarding convoys
of ships in the Persian Gulf to stop the attacks.
Still they come.
Just'let a ship get off by itself, and it is fair game for ai'
attack by both Iran and Iraq.
We suppose that the other Arab nations feel that if the
United Nations sends out a naval task force, it won't be just
three nations for which the Arabs don't have much love
anyhow, trying to stave off their attacks. The Arabs probably
feel a UN task force will tell their belligerent brothers the rest
of the world is "holding hands" to oppose their actions in the
Persian Gulf.


Can We Continue?
Something else which just might work-against drugs or
anything else-is some more of that concentrated. and
dedicated police action we have witnessed here in Gulf County
for the past several weeks.
Almost everyone knew drugs were being sold here and
wanted the police to do something about it.
They couldn't get much accomplished because of jealousy
of one department for another. A sense of dedication and
cooperation has signs of accomplishing wonders. Can we keep it
up?


Old Vic Didn't Pan Out


I had kind'a planned all week to
do an article today on the "big news
stories" of 1987. One of those "let's put
things in the proper perspective"
review of the past year. Then if I had a
little time left, we'd make some pre-
dictions for the upcoming-year. I got
to doing a little research and dis-
covered that everybody and his
brother was taking a look at 1987.'
Headlines across the country pro-
claimed "These were the big stories
for 1987." And on television some-
where between "It's A Wonderful
Life" and "The Grinch That Stole
Christmas" you'd find a program en-
titled "The Year in Review" or "Mak-
ing News in 1987." As far as looking
ahead, I had heard enough already of
what the economy, the price index,
the gross national product (whatever
that is), the silver market and the
strength of the American dollar
abroad is projected to be for 1988.
Listen, I read the other day that J. J.
Starbuck had been cancelled. If that's
true the year is not getting off to a
banner start.
My mind this morning has flipped
back to 1954. I picked up the paper ly-
ing on a chair in the kitchen. The
headlines of the Nashville Banner that
morning proclaimed in big bold print,
"Happy New Year 1954." That was
the first time. I realized that we
celebrated the coming of a new year. I
was just a few days short of my
seventh birthday. Now I didn't start


recounting the big stories of the year
just past. I don't think it crossed my
mind to look back. Of course there
might not have been any "big" stories
in the preceding year. Quick now -
how many news events can you recall
from 1953?
The only thought that concerned
me for the upcoming year was Vic
Raschi. He'd better be good. The
Cardinals had just traded Enos
Slaughter to the Yankees for him. My
mother cried and I was a bit dis-
appointed myself. Enos had been one
of our favorites for years. Yes sir, this
Raschi fellow had better be good.
Maybe this would be the year the
Cardinals would.make it to the World
Series.
With no more thought of the year
past or the year upcoming I headed
out to find Bobby Brewer and we'd get
on with the important things like
hiking down to the big ditch, playing
cowboys and Indians in the hay loft or
skating across Mr. Archie Moore's
pond. We didn't worry too much about
what was behind or ahead, we just
kind'a tried to enjoy livingtat the mo-
ment we were in. You knor you can
get things too complicated. '1
By New Year's Day 1964,. I ad
t certainly matured and become ~nore
"worldly". After all in eleven days I'd
be seventeen. So you'd think ye'd
really be studying the "news events"
of 1963. Wrong. How about looking
ahead to the prospects of 1964. Wrong


by Kesley Colbi


again. Oh, I gave some thought to
Stan Musial's retirement in '63 and I
was worried as to how the Cardinals
were going to do in '64 without him.
But shucks, I ate my blackeyed peas
in silence and then headed out to wait
for Bobby Brewer. We had discovered
a new winter game. We'd get a fifty
foot rope and tie one end to the back of
Bobby's pickup and the other end to a
'56 Chevrolet hood. You talk about fly-
ing. When the truck got up to about 45
mph or so whoever happened to be
riding in the hood wasn't thinking
about years past or years future. They
were doing all that they could to just
to hang on at that moment. By shifting
your weight you could guide that
"sled" from one ditch, across the road
to the other ditch. Now I know what
you're thinking what if a car came
along? Listen, we were having too
much fun to worry about something
that might happen.
Maybe we're going about it all
wrong in 1988. Perhaps we reflect


COLBERT


back too much. Maybe we spend too
much time dwelling on what is or is
not going to happen. And maybe, just
maybe we don't spend enough time
just enjoying being where we're at
right now. Hey, I'm going to have fun
today.
And I've got only one prediction for
1988 the St. Louis Cardinals will not
lose a game and again make it to the
World Series.
Respectfully,
Kes


Price of The Star Is Reduced


The price of a copy of The Star
will drop from 30 cents to 25 cents per
copy beginning this week. The in-
crease in price was initiated when the
Florida Legislature placed the con-
troversial sales tax on services, in-
cluding newspapers and advertising.
As on the first of the year the sales
tax on services was repealed,


therefore The Star is reducing its cost
to the pre-tax rate.
In addition to the single copy
price eliminating the sales tax, mail
subscriptions will no longer be subject
to the tax. All advertising, both
display and classified is no longer sub-
ject to the five percent sales tax also.

they made life uncomfortable for you?
If you have seen this phenomenon, you
have experienced "Pay back time!"
I am now fully convinced the
reason the Lord lets most of us live til
about age 70 or so, is so we will have
the satisfaction of witnessing such pay
backs, and allowing us to see just how'
our own children did things which'
seemed funny as the devil to our
friends and a few relatives, but nearly'
gave us apoplexy at the time it

WHEN MY KIDS were around
eight to 12 years old, they "cha"d" my
"grin" more than once. Regularly
might better describe the frequency of
such disturbing activity better than


any word.
We lived onIarvin Avenue at the
time, and at the time, there were only
one or two houses on the west side of
the street. i/t was mostly woods,
palmettos ftnd ti-tiK thickets. You
couldn't see the creek which runs
through F Iiept Park from our house,
the under rush was so thick.
The ids, liked to play in that
jungle a d one day, happened to set it
on fire while playing with matches
under he cover of some particularly.
thick nderbrush.
h, were in the brush playing
and suddenly they all came home
wi out being called and sat down in
th house like little angels.
A' few minutes later, .a thick
oke started curling up from the
rush across the street.
The fire got down in the muck of
Forest Park and that fire burned for a
week or two before it was finally
smothered out.


The kids say now, I got them in a
back bedroom and whipped them for a
while!
I really don't believe I did. I seem
to remember saying something like,
"You children know it's dangerous to
play with matches. You aren't going
to do it again, are you?"
To a kid, they said, "No-o-o-o-o!
We wouldn't dare. We see what it can
cause!"
I didn't hit the little darlins, but I
was thinking seriously of "Pay back
time" then and there.
-+ + + ++
LAST WEEK, I had the opportun-
ity to -witness some pay back time,
and let me tell you, it is delicious!
There's nothing like seeing your
kids squirm over something they did
to you and their kids are now doing to
them.
I believe "Pay back" is more
delicious and more satisfying than


being able to say, "I told you so!"
Four of the delightful little
grandsons got together down in their
camp on a vacant lot near their home
and before you know it, there was a
. wisp of smoke coming from that
camp, then a puff, and then a billow!
One of the kids was running for the
water hose and the other was running
for the phone to call the fire
department and another was just
running, looking for a place to hide
from his mother and daddy.
It looked like a Chinese fire drill
from all reports.
Actually, it must have looked like
their parents looked when they found
out the fire siren signal which sounded
at about that time was at their
address!
Ah! Pay back time! I wouldn't
want to go through it again, but it was
a delight and more satisfying than a
rib eye steak when you are hungry!'
It was worth the wait!

ANOTHER YEAR HAS slipped by. The holiday season has come and
gone and it's now time to face, again, the realities of life.
It was a good year at our home. We accomplished a lot and, more
than that, we have a lot to look forward to. Our holiday season was one of
the best we have ever had. We had plenty to eat, lots of friends to share
with, no, particular crisis and plenty of hope.
That's the reason why I wonder why I feel so depressed. I've been
feeling bad since January 2nd and it's sticking with me.
After considerable, serious thought, I have concluded there are
several reasons why I feel so depressed. Below are just a few.

-I ate too much. I don't mean just during the holidays either. I ate
too much all through the year. The holiday season, however, was the
crowning blow. If I had died of food poisoning on January 1st, the coroner
would have had a difficult time determining what food killed me. I ate
turkey, ham, oysters, shrimp, deer steaks, fish, an assortment of snacks
that were made of I don't know what, and an unknown substance at a
party one night that tasted something like a four day old fried Easter egg.
My stomach is still stretched and sore.
-I drank too much. From Thanksgiving day through the new year, I
drank water, tea, coffee, kool aid, orange juice, tomato juice; apple juice,
7 Up, coke, ginger ale, bourbon, beer, vodka, gin, wine, champagne, and
New Year's morning I drank some river water when I ran out of mixer for
a drink. Talk about a pair of kidneys! Mine probably look like a couple of
dried prunes and my liver's hanging on by a string.
-I went to too many parties. Starting November 1, 1987, and going
through New Year's day, I attended 28 parties, and I may have forgotten
two or five. And that doesn't count the impromptu parties we had at our
house or at the home of friends. I went to so many that about December
1stIl would just get dressed for one, party planned or not.
-I spent too much money. One of the great mysteries of life is how
two grown, intelligent people can sit down and outline a simple budget for
Christmas, listing the gifts and cost adding 10 percent to the list price -
and miss it.by several hundred dollars. I'll say one intelligent person. I
had rather be ignorant and have an excuse than to know I missed
something that far.
-I stayed on the "run" too much. Where does the time go? My wife
and I agreed some years ago that we would spend the holidays at home.
The main reason was that we were so worn out after traveling to
Mississippi and back that we couldn't enjoy the holidays. We stayed home
this year but I put about 2,000 miles on my truck. I stayed in my truck
more than I did my house.

I'VE ENJOYED ABOUT all the holiday season I can stand. Now, I
must face the fact that I have to diet, quit drinking and going to so many
parties, start selling instead of buying and do my, driving to and front)
work.
The song says it best: "Turn out the lights, the party's over!" Happy
New Year to all!


several other states in the growing ,;
swing toward using a state operated
lottery to finance some state opera-,
tions. In Florida, the lottery proceeds:
are ear-marked for use by the public
school system.
Beginning Tuesday, some 14,000,
retail outlets will begin selling the
$1.00 tickets which will offer a gamut
of prizes which will range from a free
ticket to the all-star attraction of $1
million.
Winning tickets offer prizes from
a free ticket to cash prizes of $2, $5,
$25, $50 and $5,000. Players scratch off
the green dollar sign coatings on the
cards to reveal six dollar figures or
words, If three of them match, the
player wins.
Winners can collect, immediate-
ly, prizes up to $599 from businesses
that sell the tickets, but the Lottery
Department will pay the higher prizes
after verifying the tickets.
Tickets with three "entry" words
are qualified to enter the highlight of
the millionarie game-two grand
prize drawings of $1 million each.
The first drawing is expected to


be made about the middle of Febru-
ary and the second, when the first
millionaire game ends in mid-March.
GULF COUNTY OUTLETS
Presently, there are 16 outlets in
Gulf County which will offer the new

Tax Credits Are Worth More Than


Deductions On
By: Wayne T. DeWitt, C.P.A. A cre
A credit for child and dependent you have
care is available to working parents taxable ii
who pay work-related expenses for
the care of one or more members of
their household who is a qualifying
person.
Work related expenses are home
expenses, child care expenses, dis-
abled dependent care expenses, and
disabled spouse care expenses. A
qualifying person is a dependent
under age fifteen for whom you may
claim as a dependent, a disabled
dependent, or a disabled spouse.
You may use as much as $2,400 in
expenses for one dependent and $4,800
in expenses for two or more depend-
ents. The credit is 30 percent of the
work-related expenses for people with
adjusted gross income of $10,000 or
less. The percentage decreases by one
percent for each $2,000 of adjusted
gross income over $10,000 until the
credit is at 20 percent.
For example, if you earn $20,000
and pay $1,500 in expenses so you may
work, your credit would be $375 (25
percent times 1,500).
If you are married you must file a
joint return to get the credit, but some
separated taxpayers can claim the
credit on a separate return.
Tax credits are sometimes mis-
takenly thought to be the same as
deductions. But, in fact credits are
worth more to you than deductions.
Deductions such as medical ex-
penses, interest, etc., are deducted
from your income. Therefore your tax
benefits from these deductions de-
pends on the tax bracket you are in. T

Time to Think of Planting Trees


Moving An Established
by Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Agent
Maybe there is a tree on one part
of your property that you want to
move to another location. Perhaps a
neighbor has offered you a tree that
will improve your landscape. You
may want to obtain a new species
from a nursery, or the wild. If so, it's
time to become familiar with the do's
and don't of tree transplanting. By
following proper methods, you can
help insure the survival of the tree you
are moving.
Transplanting can be quite a
shock to trees. If they don't receive
proper care and handling throughout
the operation, they'll probably die. In
this article I will talk about some
general -rules to follow when moving
trees. My information on tree trans-
planting was provided by Extension
Horticulturist Dr. Robert Black. ROY
Before I go into detail about taking trees fi
transplanting trees, we need to talk of Florida has
briefly about legal considerations of vation law whi


Tree Sometimes Takes


A


tion, collection and sale of various
endangered and threatened trees,
plants, and shrubs. So, you need to
keep this law in mind, and follow the
legal procedures for obtaining endan-
gered or threatened plants.
Although most trees can be
moved any time of the year, different
tree families have optimum seasons
in which they should be transplanted.
To insure quick adaptation to their
new environment. Deciduous trees
seem to do better if they're moved in
fall, winter or spring. Evergreens
suffer lease when transplanted during
August and early September. It's best
to move palms during the warm,
rainy summer months.


One tree moving problem espe-
cially during summer is maintaining
.. adequate moisture. During trans-
S planting, water loss through the
CARTiER leaves can be quite severe. You should
,CARTER apply an anti-transparent, a foliage
he wild. The State spray available from nurseries and
native plant preser- garden centers. This minimizes mois-
ntrols the destruc- ture loss by blocking leaf pores.

Most Florida trees grow best
when the soil pH is between 5.5 and 6.
So, you may need to adjust the pH
before transplanting while the tree is
still in its original location not after it
has been dug up.
Another important transplanting
factor is proper drainage. Poor
drainage can adversely affect a
transplant. To test drainage, dig the
planting hole in advance and fill it
with water. If all the water drains out
in the first 18 to 24 hours, drainage is
satisfactory. Also, before you trans-
plant, check for underground utility
lines or pipes, and remove all buried
debris, especially old mortar and
broken concrete blocks.
A final consideration is root
pruning. This encourages develop-
ment of fibrous roots and minimizes
shock at planting time. Early spring is
usually the best time for root pruning.
Large trees should be pruned at least
one growing season prior to moving,
and some experts suggest extending
pruning over two years, pruning half
the roots the first year, half the
second, and moving the tree the third.
To prune, cut through the lateral
roots with a sharp spade, forming a
circle around the tree about 10 to 12
times its trunk diameter. Make the
cuts deep enough to cut'most of the
,,lateral roots. When it's time to
transplant, the severed roots will have
sprouted many feeder roots which will
help the tree become established in its
new location.

IN EIGHTY-EIGHT


Starting in 1988, Florida Power customers will be seeing
double a double decrease in their electric bill rates.
Why? Lower inflation, lower interest rates and changes
in the tax laws have lowered our costs of doing business.
The savings are being passed on to our customers with
lower rates for the second time in two years.
The new decrease will be about twice as much as the 1987
decrease. That means twice the savings for our customers.
It means that Florida Power continues to offer rates that
are among the lowest in the state. And that means a lot to
us... and our customers.

Drunk & Drugged Drivers Still the Number One Killers On Road


By: Diane K. Steed, Administrator of
the National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration
Drunk driving remains the num-
ber one killer on our roads, striking
with a frequency and ferocity that
would be national news if its victims
were reported in total each day
instead of individually in the obitu-
aries in thousands of cities and towns




MINUTES.
The Board of County Commis-
sioners of Gulf County met November
24, 1987 in regular session, with the
following members present: Chair-
man Douglas C. Birmingham, Com-
missioners A.B. Traylor, Nathan
Peters, Jr., Billy Branch and Eldridge
Money. Others present were: Attor-
ney William J. Rish, Building Inspec-
tor DeWayne Manuel, Clerk Benny
Lister, Deputy Clerk Maurell Cumbie,
Administrative Assistant Civil De-
fense Director Larry Wells, Mosquito
Control Director Sam Graves, Jr. and
Sheriff Al Harrison.
Upon motion by Branch, second
by Peters, and unanimous vote, the
Board approved the minutes of
November 10, 1987, with corrections.
Pursuant to advertisement to
receive sealed bids for a silent alarm
security system for the courthouse,
the Board received two bids.
Upon motion by Peters, second by
Money, and the following vote, the
Board agreed to advertise to extend
the bid date to the next meeting, in
order to receive as many bids as
possible. Peters, Traylor and Money
voted yes. Branch and the Chairman
Voted no. The Board agreed to hold the
unopened bids received and call these
companies asking if they want their
bid held for the bid opening at the next
meeting. The Administrative Assist-
ant turned in a bid from East Bay
Electric, Inc., Panama City, submit-
ted to him in the Board of County
Commission meeting room at 7:15
a.m.
The Chairman reported he re-
ceived a note from seven Road
Department employees (employees
Jackie Lee Collins and Jim Purswell
present) requesting an explanation
as to why a junior employee was
picked to be acting supervisor rather
than giving senior employees a
chance or turning it down and when
one was asked, he already had
vacation. The Chairman stated he had
asked Road Superintendent Lester to
select who he though was the best
qualified person to be acting supervi-
sor in his absence. Upon further
questions of the employees, the
Chairman stated begin Supervisor
had nothing to do with seniority in his
opinion. He thought the Road Superin-
tendent would know best who was
qualified for the position. If the Board
disagreed with him directing the
Supervisor to select the Acting
Supervisor, it could take different
action.
George Berryman, Sylvax Corp-
oration, reported on the use of a high
performance cold mix asphalt for
road paving, and answered Commis-
sioners questions on same. Guaran-

Company will provide FOB price to
low bidder. Contractor must be on the
State bid list. Asphalt Plant needed
for product mixing. Material 100
percent useable as is no need to heat.
Cost per ton $45.00 $65.00.
Mosquito Control Employee John-
ny Williams stated for the past few
years he has noticed a difference in
is pay and other employees. The
Chairman stated there is a personnel
policy procedure to follow regarding
employee complaints. He requested
Williams address his complaint in
writing to his supervisor and the
Administrative Assistant. Peters,
Money and the Chairman will review
and provide a written response to
Williams. At that time, policy pro-
vides if the employee is still not
satisfied he may bring his complaint
before the Board of County Commis-
sioners.
The Clerk reported the following
changes in the 1986-87 budget amend-
ments previously submitted to the
Board.

tor's travel to a Building Official

where the tragedies occur. Its victims
are a cross-section of America; the
rich, the poor; the young, the old, the
safety-conscious and the not-so-safe-
ty-conscious. But they share a com-
mon demise that is always unexpect-
ed, always needless and often grudg-
ingly tolerated because our social
norms won't quite permit them to be
characterized as other than accident-


* eGulf County Commis
Graves' vacation, due to the need for
him to be at work.
The Administrative Assistant dis-
cussed a letter from Baskerville-
Donovan, Inc. reviewing the accom-
plishments of the previous year and
goals for new year in the Comprehen-
sive Plan. The Administrative Assist-
ant requested the Board approve him
writing members of the Gulf County
Comprehensive Planning Committee
informing them of the current status
of the Plan, and requesting their
continued support. The Board agreed.
The Administrative Assistant prc-
sented a letter and map from the
Department of Transportation sche-
duling the following road be placed
back under State of Florida jurisdic-
tion: Highway 22, from Wetappo
Creek to SR71.
Money discussed writing the
Department of Transportation stating
the county had never accepted
jurisdiction of this road. The Chair-
man stated from this letter, the State
apparently thought the county had
jurisdiction of this road and suggested
the Board write the Department of
Transportation thanking them for
taking it back; however, the County
had never accepted jurisdiction of the
road, the State had just given it to the
County. Branch requested Deputy
Clerk Cumbie write the Department
of Transportation informing them of
the Board's new Chairman, as they
were continuing to address corres-
pondence to him.
Upon motion by Traylor, second
-by Branch, and unanimous vote, the
Board approved the Administrative
Assistant's request to receive quotes
for emergency repair of the Court-
house elevator.
Upon motion by Peters, second by
Money, and unanimous vote, the
Board approved the Administrative
Assistant's request to travel to a Civil
Defense Radiology Monitoring Course
in DeFuniak Springs, on December 15
and 16, 1987, with the State paying the
expense.
Attorney Rish reported during the
past week Sylvachem Corporation
agreed to clean up any debris, etc.
they had left at the landfill and
reimburse the county for all expenses
incurred in covering areas of petro-
leum dumping. The Mosquito Control
Director agreed to submit a billing to
.Sylvachem for all county expenses.
The Attorney advised the Board of the
need for a Hold Harmless Agreement
with Sylvachem Corporation regard-
ing this dumping. After request for
advice from the Attorney, Branch
moved the Board notify Sylvachem
they can't use this dumping site until
the Board received a Hold Harmless
Agreement from them. Traylor se-
conded the motion. Branch, Traylor
and the Chairman voted yes. Peters
and Money abstained. The Chairman
stated it should be recorded in the
minutes Peters and Money are
employees of Sylvachem. Upon the
Mosquito Control Director's inquiry
as to other companies requesting
permission to dump materials in the
landfill (company working for Sylva-
chem removing asbestos, etc.), the
Chairman stated, due to the action the
Board has just taken, any other
companies making this request should
be required to sign hold harmless
agreements prior to Board approval.
The Board agreed.
The Attorney reported the County
has executed a contract to use Bay
Country's garbage incinerator. The
Mosquitp Control Director reported on
his department employees transfer-
ing one load to the incinerator. The
Attorney stated he would ask that the
Board direct the Mosquito Control
Director to check with Bay County
Landfill personnel to verify they were
doing everything correctly in the
transfer. The Attorney presented a
Department of Environmental Regu-
lation Consent Order on the Buckhorfi
Landfill, however, upon review, the
Mosquito Control Director, Adminis-
trative Assistant, and himself were
not satisfied and he was continuing to
study the order. The Board directed
the Attorney continue negotiation on
the Consent Order.
The Attorney reported on possible
litigation concerning Gulf County's
use of the Bay County incinerator.
Upon motion by Peters, second by
Money, 'and unanimous vote, the
Board approved the Chairman and the
Attorney executing an answer to this
court case.
Upon motion by Peters, second by
Money, and unanimous vote, the
Board agreed to study a proposed
ordinance, as prepared by the Attor-
ney regarding signs on public right of
way and the Board would discuss at
the next meeting. The Chairman
requested the Commissioners be
prepared to take action at the next
meeting.
Upon motion by Traylor, second
by Peters, and unanimous vote the
Board agreed for Traylor to purchase
steel from the dismantling of the
Dead Lakes Dam at a maximum of
$6,000 to $7,000, to stockpile for use by
te Road Department and Mosquito
Control Department.
Branch reported there was an
advertised meeting concerning the
Beaches Water System,ith Peters,
Administrative Assistant Wells, and
himself attending. Branch reported
very little public attendance and
moved the Board send out a question
to all Beaches Water System Users
polling their approval of the install-
ation of a water holding tank, Money


al deaths.,
For many years in this country we
talked about drunk driving in statisti-
cal terms only; lives lost and public
expenditures. The higher the num-
bers, the more the public would pay
attention, or so we thought. But the
opposite was true. The numbers were
largely ignored because they were,
after all, just numbers. There were no


seconded the motion and is passed
unanimously. Branch suggested the
poll question be sent out printed on the
water bills. The Chairman suggested
a separate card be mailed at the same
time as the water bill. After discus-
sion with the Clerk, the Chairman
requested the Clerk determine the
method of mailing the question poll at
the same time as the water bills and
Branch to sulimit the exact wording of
the question to the Clerk.
Upon Money's inquiry as to what
happened to the Caretaker at the
White City Park, the Administrative
Assistant reported the Mosquito. Con-
trol Director went to the park and
found the caretaker had left with no
notification to the Board. Money
discussed the Board's written agree-
ment with the caretaker and there
followed discussion of need for a
caretaker for the park.
Peters reported he conducted the
first Safety Meeting for the Mosquito
Control Department on November 19,
1987, in the Conference Room at the
Gulf County Library, the topic being
Oxyacetylene Safety. The County
meeting immediately followed Sylva-
chem Corporation's Safety Meeting
and they allowed use of their
equipment and film. The Administra-
tive Assistant is still looking for a
television and VCR for county pur-
chase. Peters requested that the
names of those county employees who
attended the safety meeting, be
entered into the minutes.
Upon motion by Traylor, second
by Money, and unanimous vote, the
Board approved payment of an
invoice for Project Graduation, at
$500, from the Wewahitchka High
School and also that of Port St. Joe
High School's upon receipt.
Upon inquiry of the Chairman, the
Administrative Assistant reported he.
had posted notices of the Safety
Director Job Opening in each depart-
ment. The Chairman directed the
Administrative Assistant include a
deadline to receive applications and
the Board would consider this job
opening at its next meeting.
The Chairman discussed a Road
Department employee stating he did
not want to operate the Warner-Swa-
sey unless he received the base rate of
pay for operating this piece of
equipment. The Chairman stated the
following was his interpretation of
Board policy and asked the Board if
they agreed or disagreed.
-An employee shall receive his
base rate of pay while breaking in on a
job of different class of position from
his permanent assignment until such
time as his supervisor feels the
employee is qualified to receive the
base pay for the new position.
Application If we put an employee on
a piece of equipment for training, he
doesn't receive a full rate of pay until
he shows sufficient skill and his
supervisor has to attest to it.
Policy Any time an employee is
.assigned to a position or job of higher
pay he shall receive that base rate of
pay for that period of time. Applica-
tion In regard to a permanent
assignment as opposed to being
assigned to operate a machine for a
few days.
Peters stated it was his opinion
anytime an employee is put on a
higher job or to operate equipment
that requires certain skills, he should
be paid a higher rate of pay.
Following discussion, the Board
agreed with the Chairman's interpre-
tation application of Board policy.
Upon motion by Branch, second
by Traylor, and unanimous vote, the
Board agreed to advertise to amend
it's Fair Housing Ordinance to include
a provision for the handicapped.
Birmingham gave the Chair to
Vice-Chairman Money to move the
Board approve purchase of the
equipment "Jaws of Life" for the
Wewahitchka Ambulance Squad, with
one-half payment from this years
budget and one-half payment from
next years budget. Traylor seconded
the motion and it passed unanimously.
Birmingham presented two pro-
posed resolutions commending Bruck
Nixon and Kenneth Eugene Strange
for their courage in going into the
canal at the White City Bridge in an
effort to save and or locate Eva
Evelyn Hall. The Chairman directed
the Administrative Assistant place
the resolutions in permanent binders,
contact Nixon and Strange inviting
them to the next meeting for the
Board's adoption of the resolutions
and presentation to them. The Board
agreed.
Upon inquiry of the Attorney, the
Chairman agreed to cancel the
December 22, 1987 regular meeting,
due to the Christmas holiday.
Upon Branch's request for a
report on progress in the naming of
streets and house numbering through-
out the county, the Administrative
Assistant reported he had an appoint-
ment scheduled with Bay County and
also had discussed with Money an
individual to possibly perform this
work.
Peters requested the Chairman
write a letter to the Safety Director
and Plant Manager of Sylvachem
Corporation thanking them for the use
of equipment and film at a County
Employee Safety Meeting. The Chair-
man requested the Administrative
Assistant write this letter.
There being no further business
the meeting adjourned


faces or shattered lives attached to
tug at the heart strings.
But something changed all that in
the early 1980's. Citizen activist
groups, like Mothers Against Drunk
Driving, moved drunk driving off the
bar graphs and brought it up close and
personal, laying its dire consequences
squarely on the doorsteps of virtually
every American community.
Suddenly the blinders came off,
the outrage swelled and things began
to change and change dramatically.
Thanks to that awakening, the
United States, to its credit, has made
remarkable progress in just a handful
of years. Forty-one percent of the
total traffic deaths in 1986 involved at
least one driver or pedestrian who
was intoxicated, a shocking figure but
one that represents a significant
decline from the 46 percent that was
tallied in 1982. The percentage of
intoxicated teenage drivers involved
in fatal crashes also dropped, from 28
percent in 1982 to 21 percent in 1986,
the largest decrease among all age


groups.
As promising as the improved
statistics are, they are not much
comfort to the families and friends of
the 19,000 people who were killed last
year in alcohol-related crashes. We
are holding our own keeping things
from getting worse but we are still a
long way from the point where we can
drive our roads, reasonably assured
that the approaching car or truck is
not driven by someone who has had
too much to drink. Alcohol has played
and probably will continue to play a
major role in how we socialize in this
country. The challenge is to convince
people to use alcohol in moderation
and to avoid driving after drinking.
This is especially true during the
Christmas New Year's holiday
season when travel increases, office
parties abound and it's common to get
together with family, friends arid
neighbors for "a little holiday cheer."
Together laws, more enforcement
and increased public and media
attention over the past few years

helped reduce alcohol-related crashes
by nearly 30 percent in some parts of
the nation. Many responsible people
have gotten the message and have
modified their drinking habits for the
better. But the problem is far from
solved and complacency should not
replace the concern and anger of the
early 1980's that motivated govern-
ment, the private sector and citizen
groups to stop wringing hands over
drunk driving and start fighting it.
We continue to be too tolerant of a
dangerous minority who leave par-
ties, bars and restaurants with
attitudes like "I drive better when I'm
drunk," "I only had a few," and
"Nobody drives my car but me."
The old adage about an ounce of
prevention being worth a pound of
cure is particularly appropriate when
developing strategies to curb drunk
drivers. Remember, drun4 driving IS
preventable and drinking too much
and then getting behind the wheel and
killing someone is not an accidental
event.
