Bid Awarded to Construct Prison Camp In Gulf


Work Scheduled to Begin In About Two Weeks;

Facility Located On Howard Creek Road


R/W -------


Construction work is scheduled to
begin in approximately two weeks on
a state-operated facility which will
bring 59 new jobs to the county.
Baskerville-Donovan Engineers
spokesman, Ralph Rish told the
Kiwanis Club Tuesday that a $2
million contract has just been signed
by the State Department of Correc-
tions with B&W Construction Com-
pany of Tallahassee, to build a
forestry work camp here in Gulf
County near White City.
Rish said the contract had just
been signed during the past week to
build the new facility which is part of
the answer being applied to solve
Florida's over-crowded prison facili-
ties.
BDE is doing all the engineering
work connected with the project.
The camp to be built here in Gulf
County is designed to house young
first-time offenders in an attempt to
rehabilitate them through responsibil-
ity and work. The inmates will work
mostly with the Florida Forest
Service in the area, as part of their


detention time.
200 BED FACILITY
Even though the camp will be
small in comparison with other
prisons in the state, it will still have
facilities to house 200 inmates at a
much reduced cost per inmate.
The camp will be totally self-
contained and is expected to pour
some $1.1 to $1.3 million into the local
economy annually.
The minimum security prison
facility will be located on the Howard
Creek Road (also known as the Doc
Whitfield Road) adjacent to the point
it crosses Cypress Creek. The camp
will be on the south side of the road
and the west side of the creek.
Gulf County has an investment,


buildings and three smaller support
buildings. Rish made the point of
saying that none of the prisoner
facilities will be air conditioned. "The
complex will have a basketball court
and a swimming pool, but it will be no
'country club' setting".
Initially, the camp will be served
by 48 employees, who will act as
guards and supervisors for the
inmates, as well as 11 Florida
Forestry Service people, who will be
charged with directing the inmates in
their work on public forest lands in
this area. Of this staff of 59 people, 45
are being hired locally with the
remainder moving into or commuting
to the county.
Construction is expected- to be
completed by about mid-year.

City OK's WWP Improvements

Half Million Dollars Will be Spent On the Settling Pond
The Port St. Joe City Commission to hold all waste water in the settling impurities". At present, Simon says
voted Tuesday night to spend $400,000 pond for the same length of time and the bulk of the waste water takes a
in making further improvements to allow the 'bugs' time to digest the


the Wastewater Treatment Plant.
The expenditure will be made in the
settling pond area of the plant, to
handle some of the complaints about
effluent consistency which have been
on-going from the Florida Depart-
ment of Environmental Regulation
and the U.S. Environmental Protec-
tion Agency.
According to plant superinten-
dent, Bob Simon, "the environmental
agencies directed the work be done".
Mayor Frank Pate told the
Commission Tuesday night, the Tri-
partite Committee, which sits as an
advisory committee for the plant's
operation, had advised the City to
negotiate a contract with J.P.S. Oil
Troil of Corinth, Mississippi, to do the
work.
Simon says the construction will
consist' of building a series of
"curtains" in the settling pond,
creating a labyrinth which the waste
water mbst follow from its point of
entrance to the point of flowing out of
the pond. "The structure is designed


Hail Storm Pommels

Portion of Peninsula


While Port St. Joe was witnessing
clearing weather following a morning
of rain Monday about noon, residents
of SL Joseph's Peninsula were
experiencing a pelting storm. The
inclement weather swept in from
across the Gulf of Mexico, bthginft
high winds and a driving hail storm.
According to Mrs. Cleo Gunn, the
storm damaged the front porch of her
beach home, as well as damaged the
roof with driving hail stones.
Mrs. Glen.Combs reported flying
limbs, pine cones and garbage cans
littering the area near her home, at
well as a heavy deluge of hail. A new
home under construction in the same
area had an end section of siding
blown off.
A secretary at the St. Joseph's


State Park said hail about the size of
marbles fell for approximately eight
minutes in the park area.
At Barrier Dunes a chimney cap
was blown off in the heavy winds
whichA4thpanled the hail.
U Sybil Perris reported that
hail stones drifted up on her carport
as much as six inches deep after the
front passed through. "It really came
down for a few minutes there", a
witness said.
Mrs. Ferris said that in addition
to the hail, several trees were blown
over ot broken off in her neighborhood
by the severe winds which whipped in
with the storm.
Residents surmised the winds
were an ill-defined twister just
making up or just breaking up.


,Case Covers 20 Year Period of Dispute


St. Joe Forest Products


Friday, January 29 will bring a 20 year dispute
against St. Joe Paper Company for discrimination against
minorities in its hiring practices to an end. Attorneys for
both the St. Joe Forest Products Company and the Office of
Economic Opportunity have agreed to a 'settlement
directed by the UITS. District Court to settle the case and call
a halt to litigation which has been in the Federal Courts
since 1976.
St. Forest Products (known as St. Joe Paper Company
at the time) was judged by the District Court to have
maintained a pattern and practice of discrimination
against black employees and applicants for employment in
its Port St. Joe plant. The court ruled that St. Joe Paper
Company especially violated OEO guidelines in its handling
q of applications for employment.
Since the local paper mill maintains a ratio of black


employees to white which is greater
the two races in the vicinity, the r

Concern Won't Do It


Hunker Down with Kes


by Kesley Colbert


Roads Need Work Hey Coach, Pass the Ben Gay


If you are thinking like we are, you read the headline on last
week's story concerning the County Commissioner's concern
-over the condition of road paving in Gulf County and muttered,
softly, under your breath, "So what else is new?"
We have been gathering news, writing stories, reporting the
actions of the County Commission for the past 35 years and we
truthfully cannot remember a year in all those 35 when the
County Commission wasn't fretting over a crisis in the
condition of the road system in Gulf County.
For years, back during the single member district
days-like they are now-it was the good fortune of the county
commissioner who shouted the loudest or who could trade off a
favor with two other members of the board in a secret
agreement, who had their road attended to during any given
year. If a commissioner didn't have anything to trade or he had
no influence with the Commission as a whole, the roads in his
district were just out of luck. The driver just had to bounce or
travel another route.
Then along came the state's secondary road program with
its practices of putting a hard surface on virtually every road
which attracted vehicular traffic and for a period of time, the
road problems were partially solved. Even under this
arrangement, there were problems getting a particular road
paved or repaired.
Now, for the past eight or ten years, the secondary program
has been relegated to a position far, far behind secondary. As a
matter of fact, it's non-existant. Actually, the county is now
charged with tending to the needs of most of the roads the state
tended to in years past; plus some more.
We're not saying the county roads do not need attention and
there is no need for paving. We feel just the opposite is true.
With the sandy soil we have here in Gulf County, a paved road
doesn't last too long before it is in desperate condition.
We agree with the Commission. Our roads are beginning to
get in deplorable condition and need some repairs right soon.
What we're getting at is, that for at least 35 years this same
situation has been with us. For at least 35 years we have heard a
worried lament about what might happen if some way isn't
found to repair the roads.
But, you know; not one road has been repaired by the
groaning over their condition. Talking about the situation won't
solve it, nor is any benevolent arm of some other government
going to walk in and agree to pay for the job. Roads cost
money and the only way to get them repaired is to pay for it.
It's a hard bullet to bite, but the County Commissioners,
individually, asked for the opportunity to solve this problem.
After some 35 years or so, it's time to get about the task.



What If....

Everybody is suing everybody these days. Now, a citrus
nursery is suing the state of Florida because the state destroyed
3.5 million citrus trees during the canker war in 1984 and 1985.
The nursery said the destruction of the trees was unnecessary
and now wants the state to pay $19 million for the destroyed
trees rather than the $2 million the nursery was paid when the
trees were destroyed.
It's easy to sit up here in Gulf County and second guess a
citrus nursery over such a matter. Likely, if the same were to
happen to pine trees we could stir up some of that righteous
indignation against the state of Florida.
From this distance, however, we can look at the situation
clear-eyed and ponder over in our mind just what that nursery
would have done if the state had done nothing and allowed the
canker to completely wipe out the citrus industry in Florida?
As it is, the nursery is apparently still in business and citrus
continues to thrive in Florida as an important cash crop. If the
citrus nursery wins this suit, the cotton farmers of the dust bowl
days ought to use it as a precedent to be paid for the millions of
acres of cotton which were burned and plowed under to get rid
of the boll weevil.


"How does the arm feel Kes?"
We're in to the sixth inning of the
championship game in Little League.
I'm ten, maybe eleven years old. Bob-
by "Yogi" Brewer, our catcher, who
had just strolled to the mound asked
the question.
"I'm fine Yogi."
"You're not throwing as hard as
you were."
Listen I'm fine, if we had a real
umpire instead of Mr. Kennon he's
a store clerk for crying out loud -
they wouldn't have a hit. He wouldn't
know a strike....
"How ya' feel Kes?" Bobby Jack


Cantrell, our coach, had made his way
to the mound.
"Feel good coach, I can get 'em."
"Their best hitter is coming up."
"I can get him."
"Throw hard, don't walk him and
don't let him hit it." End of strategy
meeting. Of course my arm didn't feel
good. I was tired. The ball felt like it
weighed fifteen pounds. But I didn't
want to quit. At least, I didn't want
anyone to know that I might possibly
want to quit. You follow me?
Back in my younger days, after
about three weeks or so of cold, wet,
dreary January, my thoughts would


turn to baseball. Let's get out of
January ahd February and get to spr-
ing training. Sometimes I'd think
about those meetings on the mound of
pitcher, catcher and coach.
Sometimes the second baseman or
shortstop would come over but what
could they tell you about getting the
next hitter out?
I'd listen to the radio broadcast as
Musial would step up to the plate.
Campanella would go out to talk to
Carl Erskine. We'd sit around the liv-
ing room and wonder what they were
saying. My Dad would figure they
were talking about where they were

going to eat after the game. T.V.
came along and I got to see Dale
Crandell go out to the mound to
discuss "strategy" with Warren
Spahn. Again, I wondered what they
were talking about. I was hoping Diz-
zy Dean would tell us but he'd be busy
singing a few lines from "The Wabash
Cannonball." Someone next to me
remarked that they were probably
talking about the pretty blonde in the
second row.
When I was fifteen I hitchhiked
the seventeen miles to the big town to
play American Legion baseball. Our
coach was Chick King. He'd played
for the Detroit Tigers, Chicago Cubs
and St. Louis Cardinals. I couldn't
wait for the first "meeting on the
mound." Chick would know what you
are supposed to say. I was catching in
those days. Bill Kemp was our best
pitcher. He ran into a jam in the
eighth inning and I started for the
mound. I got about halfway out there
and realized that I didn't know what to
say. I stopped right in front of Bill,
kicked the dirt a little with my spikes
and said, "How do you feel?"
"I'm fine. If the umpire wasn't
blind as a bat..."
"How do you feel?" Chick had
reached the summit.
"I'm fine coach."
"You're not striding as far as you
were and your elbow is dragging."
That's baseball talk for you're not
throwing as hard as you did an inning
ago.
"I feel good."
"This guy can hit don't give
him anything good, but don't walk
him."
Well, you get the idea. In the 8,000
or so times I was in on those meetings
they were all about the same. No talk
of food or blondes. Just "how do you
feel", "I'm fine" and "get'em out and
don't walk 'em."
About the only exception to this
talk that fwa eei- a prt of took
placeinidway through my junior year
in college. Coach Shirley Mayors was
a little different from any person I've
ever known. He always, always told
you just what he thought. No sugar
coating he didn't believe in it. Don
Ellis had given up several hits apd
walked half a dozen when Coach Ma-
jors came to the mound. I was playing
second base in those days but I hur-
ried in this was going to be in-
teresting. Coach Majors took the ball
from Don, stared at him for a full
minute then said, "Ellis, you've got no
guts you can't get anybody out. The
bases are loaded and you're afraid to
throw strikes."
S Ellis made a quick exit and Coach
'Majors with eyes still flashing and
smoke coming out of his ears said,
"Cani anybody here throw strikes?"
Incredulously, I heard my voice
saying, "I can get it over Coach."
"You can pitch, Kes?"
"No sir, but I can throw strikes."
He handed me the ball. I warmed

Snow Is Nice toLook At But It's A


WINTER THREATENED us with
a grand slam the early part of last
week, but it backed off just in the nick
of time and caused only a few days of
misery from the cold. weather and
drizzling rain.
Winter is good at zapping a locale
and apparently enjoys doing the south
in more than anything else.
Here in the Panhandle of Florida
we thought winter had slipped through
the protection of the Smokey Moun-
tains, the smokestacks of Atlanta and
the southern plains of Georgia and
Alabama and was headed this way
with a double whammy.
Early last week it was snowing in
Atlanta and Birmingham. Ice storms
were reported as far south as Albany
and Montgomery and a hard frost
even greeted us early one morning as


we stepped out for the morning paper.
The fire wood pile has been
melting away like a snow ball in Key
West and the plants have been
brought inside.
Just because it turned nice over
the week end, though, don't give up on
winter trying another sneak attack on
our blind side.
+ ++ + -
EVEN WITH THE close call we
had, the weather was still much
had, the weather was still much better
here, where the temperatures may
have dipped to 28 or 29 overnight on
one night only, it was a far cry from
what the rest of the nation is having.
Take Minnesota, for instance. I
watch the temperature up there when
the snow begins to threaten here. Last
week one morning, the temperature
was minus 35 degrees with the chill
factor. Of course that wasn't nearly so
degrees, but when it gets that cold,


how can a person tell whether it's
minus 35 or minus 65?
I really thought we were going to
get our snow of the decade last week.
The temperatures were hovering just
above freezing. It was getting along in
the evening and the rain was drizzling
down. The air was still and the sky
was a sullen leaden color. Everything
was right for snow, except for the
snow. We didn't have any and we
didn't get any.
We still have ample opportunity,
though, as we still have the month of
February to contend with.
+++ + +
ALL THE KIDS WERE hoping
the snow would come. They think it
would be a great adventure and
probably it would be here in Port St.
Joe. Even, though we have had snow
on occasion, I remember only one in
the last 48 years which stayed longer
than overnight. Usually, our snows


are a light dusting of the ground, a day
of cold hovering near the zero mark
and then a thawing and melting before
the day is over.
Snow, real snow, is foreign to all
of us here who have not experienced
this manner of precipitation some-
where else.
I HAVE HAD ALL the snow I care
to have, even though I experienced it-
regularly for only the first 13 years of
my life.
Believe me, that was enough.
If I ever experience snow again-.
real snow-it will be, because I went
visiting with one of my unfortunate
in-laws who live in the white wonder-
land.df winter and I can cut and run
back down south just anytime I take a
notion.
I don't particularly crave the hot
and humid weather we have here in
the summer time, but I crave the
biting, numbing cold. which comes


tgger to Livw
along with the snow even less.
Actually, I'm a 75 degree person.
If it would stay 75 degrees the year
'round, I would be one of the most
I satisfied of persons.
THE DAYS OF snow I went
through meant the water pipes always
.froze.
With the freezing of the water
pipes, it meant getting out in the deep
snow and scraping up tubs of it to
melt for water.
Or, it meant making many trips to
Lew Farris' cow lot behind our house,
to carry water from his pump. On
washdays (Wednesday) it made no
difference to momma Whether it was
snowing, frozen, raining, or what. She
washed.
Try being around 10 or 11 years
old and carry a gallon water pail over
an icy path for about 200 feet. Then
make that trip about 10 times to get
enough water to fill the washing

? With
machine and three number three tubs
with rinse water.
Would you still love snow?
In the first place, by the time you
would reach the back porch where
momma always washed, with the first
bucket, at least a fourth of the water
had sloshed on the leg of your overalls
and it is now a solid sheet of ice. Still
there are those other trips which have
to be made.
Consider if your momma would
carry the water herself and allow you
to go about the business of playing in
the snow, there would still be
problems. Us boys always got one pair
of RedRyder gloves for winter. They
were fringed imitation leather for the
cuffs and a thick cotton material on
the part which covered your hands.
How many snow balls can you
make before the gloves were soaking
wet and frozen stiff? Not very many.
So, in summary, I'm glad it just
"almost" snowed here last week.

When I Win the Lottery

Emotions were running high in the state of Florida last week. It was
the first time state-run lottery tickets were sold.
There are many people who object to the state or anyone else, for
that matter selling lottery tickets. There are many more, however, who
don't object. All indications are that Florida will set an all time record on
lottery tickets being'sold in the first few days.
The primary objection to the lottery, according to several people I
talked with, is that it is legalized gambling, sponsored by the
government. They fear that families will suffer when money for food and
clothing is used to purchase lottery tickets.
Their fears, I believe, are well founded.

THE PROCEEDS FROM the sale of lottery tickets are another thing.
As we all know, a goodly portion is going toward education in the state. A
- smaller sum is going to pay for the administration cost, tickets, salaries,
etc., of the lottery. The balance, I understand, goes to those lucky enough
to win one of the many lottery prizes.
That's where I come into the picture. I'm confident that I will win one
of the million dollar prizes. I want to tell you what I'm going to do with
this money when I win.
If you think I'm going to squander my winnings, you're wrong. I'm
going to put it to good use.

THE FIRST THING I'm going to do when I receive my winnings is to
pay off everyone I owe. The first person I'm going to pay is our paper boy.
I've been behind with him for some time now and I'm going to pay up and
some in advance. The banks, credit card companies, mortgage company
and friends I owe will be paid off, so you can all test your minds.
I'm going to see how it is to just have to pay the light bill, water bill
and gas bill each month.
The next thing I'm going to do is give a goodly sum to our church.
Our preacher need not worry because it will be over the ten percent
mark; probably closer to twenty percent. .before taxes. I'm certainly
not going to slight the one responsible for me being here!
My brothers and sister are the next ones on my list. I'm going to
make sure they are rewarded for putting up with me for a lifetime. I know
it's been tough having to admit kin to a raving fool for all these years.
My wife and children will get their rewards, too. They and the Lord
only know what they've put up with for the past twenty years. I don't
know if there will be enough money to pay them for their pain and
suffering. anyway, whatever is left will go to them.

THAT IS WHAT MY.winnings will go for when I win the lottery. My
only problem now is finding enough money after all the bills to buy a
lottery ticket. I'm told you can't win if you don't enter.


POLICE BEAT:

Counterfeit

T urn Up

Port St. Joe Police Chief Carl
"Bucky Richter said yesterday that
a counterfeit $20.00 bill had showed
up in Port St. Joe Monday night.
"The phony money was dis-
covered by the Florida National
Bank in a customer's night depo-
sit", Richter said.
The Chief went on to point out
that the counterfeit may have been
an isolated .incident, being passed
by someone who was just passing
through town. However, with the
apprehension the other day, of
counterfeiters' in the Panhandle,
Chief Richter said it might be a good
idea 'for petsons--especially mer-
chants-to be on the look-out for
'additional counterfeit money.
."'You can tell the difference is
you 'look closely at bills you
receive", the Chief said. Anyone
receiving a bad bill is urged to
contact police immediately.


Billfold

Snatched
I. W. Duren was the victim of a
strong-arm robbery early Monday,
when thieves snatched his wallet
and ran, according to Police Chief
Carl "Bucky" Richter.
"Duren was standing, talking
on .the telephone, when a man
walked up behind him, snatched his
wallet out of his rear pocket and ran
around the corner of the building
and vanished", Richter said. Duren
carried one of the larger flat
trucker's wallets, with a small
*chain attached to his belt. The thief
broke the chain when he snatched
the wallet.
A warrant has been secured for
the arrest of a suspect in the case,
but no names have been released by
the Police Department until the
warrant has been served on the
suspect.

ADOPT ORDINANCE
An ordinance was adopted Tues-
day night, prohibiting the operation
of recreational vehicles inside the two
cemeteries in the city and setting up
stiff fines for those caught in violation
of the ordinances.
The ordinance was passed after
repeated complaints had been receiv-
ed of graves being damaged by
operation of the recreational vehicles
inside the cemeteries. Attempts to
persuade the operators to stay outside
was to no avail, which prompted the
drafting of the ordinance.
The ordinance calls for a fine of
$100 for the offense and a $500 fine for
any additional offense.
OTHER BUSINESS
In additional matters of business,
the Commission:
-Heard a progress report from
Commissioner J. B. Roberts on a
proposed cooperative recreational
program for Gulf County.
-Received a copy of a proposed
list of policies for the Police Depart-
ment presented for study and com-
ment by Police Chief Carl Richter.
-Agreed to allow installation of a
modular driver's license office on the
Courthouse property on a year-to-year
basis.

Toward Understan


by Rev. Jerry Huft
Most of the people I know are
willing to spend time preparing for
their material needs. Homemakers
study recipes and prepare good
meals. Students concentrate their
efforts toward academic success.
Professionals and craftsmen con-
stantly upgrade their training and
skills to stay proficient and competi-
tive. Those of us who desire a good life
make provisions.
With this thought in mind, one
would think that we would all be doing
everything we could to get ready for
eternity. It would appear that the vast
majority of people in our country find
that even one hour per week, spent in
worship, is an unnecessary intrusion
in their lives. Ifthat is true, we are led
to believe that most Americans aren't
concerned about getting ready to
meet their maker.
I find it hard to believe that this is
true. I heard an explanation recently
that makes more sense. While making
a pastoral call to a friend, who seldom
darkens the door of the church, I
listened as he said, "I just can't get
anything out of church services, I
don't feel like I'm part of what's going
on."
My friend has a problem that
most of us can identify with. But like
most problems, there' is a solution, if
you look for it. I think that solution can
be summed up in one word, "prepar-
ation."
I suspect that a lot of us spend
more time brushing and combing than

we spend on spiritual preparation.
Even pastors, including myself, have
difficulty finding opportunities during
the hectic time before a service to do
much spiritual preparation.
Interruptions constantly draw our
minds away from the Lord. My heart
goes out to mothers of small children
especially. It's a miracle that any of
them retain their religion during the
early child development years.
A number of things can be done to
help us make our hearts ready for
worship. Here are a few simple
suggestions that can help all of us.
Many people spend time in prayer
before worship. Several years ago, at
a Saturday night home prayer fellow-
ship meeting, a wise friend said, "My
worship is always more meaningful
when I have prayed for the pastor and
the service. I also like to pray for the
other congregations in the communi-
ty." I have discovered that this kind of
praying gives 'us a feeling of unity,
and it adds joy to worship.
It is also helpful for us to come
expecting. If you don't know what you


hiding. .

should expect, let me suggest that you
open your Bible to Psalms 100. If you
put a big smile on your face and read
the words out loud, with sincerity, you
will be surprised at what happens.
Another good idea is to always be
on time. If you are consistently late, it
is because you plan to be late. Change
your habits so that you can plan to be
on-time. Few things will hinder your
worship experience more than being
late. Late entries also interrupt the
flow of worship for others.
My last suggestion is to be still
before the Lord. Calm your thoughts.
Allow your mind to relax. Be open to
the scriptures you hear and the
sermon that is preached. The scrip-
tures are God's word inscribed and
the sermons are God's word ex-
plained. You .desperately need both.
There are many ways to prepare
for worship. If you have some good
ideas, I would like to hear from you.
Drop me a note about this, or any
other subject at P.O. Box 786, Port St.
Joe, FL 32456.

Childers Tells

Gardeners About

Banana Growth
The Port St. Joe Garden Club met
at the Garden Center on January 14.
Wayne Childers gave an interesting
program on growing banana trees. He
gave each member a green banana.
He recommended ripening it in a bowl
of apples. When growing banana trees
he suggested that one flood the roots
once a week with 13-13-13 fertilizer.
Fertilizer should be used all during
the growing season.
The Garden Center was decorated
with plants and arrangements by the
hostesses Ethel Bridges, Phyllis Cum-
bie and Era Daniels. Refreshments
were provided by these hostesses.

Sharks Win One; Lose One


Rutherford 61, Sharks 51
The Rutherford Rams rode a big
second half to a 61-51 win over the
Sharks last Thursday, as the two
teams met for the second time this
season. The Sharks had defeated the
Rams earlier, in the Holiday Classic
Tournament and the Rams were out to
even the score.
The Sharks looked like they were
going to shear the Rams for the
second time, as they took a 29-27 lead
into, the rest period at half-time. The
Rams kept pounding away at the
Sharks in the second half, as the taller
Rams pulled away with' a 34 point
performance in the second half.
The Sharks were also without the
services of their high point man,
Curtis Beard, who sat on the sidelines
with a sprained ankle for the entire
game.
Marvin Hamilton and Willie
Smith had to lead the offensive charge
for the Sharks with their 15 and 14
points respectively. Hamilton and
Smith were the only Sharks shooting
in the double figures.
The Rams had their tall Marcus
Cowart to lead their scoring with 24
points.

The Sharks came from behind
Friday night, to nip the Blountstown
Tigers for the second time this season,

Down by six points at half time,

half as they came charging back to
win the game.


Langston paced the Sharks with
23 points. Russell Cherry had 10.
Curtis Beard got back into the line-up

Gulf County Sheriff Al Harrison
gave an update on the drug wars in
Gulf County Thursday of last week to
the Rotary Club.
Harrison said law enforcement in
Gulf County has collared 25 alleged
drug dealers in the county in the past
two months to "put a big dent in the
drug dealing in our county". Harrison
said that was a lot of dealers in a
small county like Gulf, but pointed out
that nearly all of the dealers were
operating on relatively small-time
basis.
"Mostly in our war against drugs,
we've been concentrating on educat-
ing school kids of the dangers which


are present with their use". The
Sheriff pointed out that today's kids
are being bombarded from every
direction concerning drugs and their
use--either 'urging them to get
involved in use of the drugs or
warning of the dangers.
"We didn't have that problem
when we were kids, so it was easy to
resist their use", the Sheriff pointed
out. He said he was happy to report
that use and trafficking in drugs in
Gulf .County seems to be subsiding.
Florida was the major pipeline for
illegal drugs entering the United


States. Now the pipeline has moved on
because of intense pressure being
- applied-against the traffic in Florida,
and the use has started to fall off.
"We have had several serious
crimes in Gulf County directly related
to the use of drugs", Harrison said.
"It's hard to support a $100 a day habit
without resorting to crime. So, it's
either 'steal or deal' with those who
are users", the Sheriff said.
The Sheriff said the law enforce-
ment community in Gulf County will
continue to apply pressure to traffick-
ing in and use of drugs in the county.

Tax Tall
By: Wayne DeWitt,
Certified Public Accountant
Many people ask if they may
deduct expenses for the use of their
home for business purposes. This
question is often asked by the school
teacher who grades papers at home,
the person that takes work home from
the office, and the salesman that
stores his product in his home.
Here are- the rules. To be
deductible, the expenses relating to
the use of the taxpayer's home for
business purposes must be attribut-
able to the portion of the home used
exclusively and on a regular basis as:
-The principal place of business
for any trade or business of the
taxpayer, or;
-A place, of business which is


used by patients, clients, or customers
in meeting or dealing with the
taxpayer in the normal course of
business.
For an employee, the use of his
home must also be for. the conveni-
ence of his employer.
The two key points are the
exclusive use rule and the regular
basis rule. Exclusive use of a portion
of a taxpayer's home means that he
cannot use that portion of his home for
anything else other than for the
purpose of carrying on his trade or
business. He cannot use this space for
both business and personal use.
One exception to the exclusive use
rule is the taxpayer whose trade or
business is selling products at retail'
and whose home is the sole location of


his place of business. In this case, the
expenses allocable to space used as a
storage area for inventory are deduc-
tible.
The regular basis rule simply
means that a person must use this
space for business purposes on a
regular basis. An occasional or
incidental business use will not justify
the deduction. If your business is of a
nature whereby clients, patients, or
customers come to you in the normal
course of business, this space must be
used for that purpose.
If you pass all the above tests and
are allowed the deduction, there is an
overall limit on the amount that is
deductible. The expenses attributed to
the business use of the home cannot
exceed the gross income earned from


such business use of the home.
One word of caution, if you are
using a portion of your home for
business purposes in the year you sell
the home, then that business portion
of your home does not qualify for
deferment of gain under the residence
replacement rules.
For example, if you sell your
home at a gain and meet certain
conditions, then you will not have to
pay taxes on the gain but may defer
the recognition of the gain. You
probably never will pay taxes on the
sale of a residence because of the
$125,000 exclusion rule at age 55.
However, that portion you have
set aside for business use does not
qualify for deferment. You will have
to pay taxes of the gain attributable to
the business use portion of your home.

ment was requesting a copy of the

viewed this, he stated these are things
that have been passed by the Board,
they do need to be reviewed and he
and the Attorney have some items to
add for the Board to consider
adopting. The Administrative Assist-
ant and Attorney mentioned there is
no felony conviction clause and there
needs to be a provision for a person

The Chairman directed the Ad-
ministrative Assistant and the Attor-
ney incorporate these items in the

member a copy, and the Board would

nity Affairs service to prepare a

vened.
The Attorney presented a pro-

- charge at $5.00 and advertise to hold a
public hearing on January 12, 1988, ;t
consider adoption. Money seconded
the motion for discussion. Money
inquired if this fee will be sufficient or

Jef Gardner, Port St. Joe Jay-
cees, gave a status report on the
construction project at the county
park at Beacon Hill. Money moved the
Board proceed with water connection
of park facilities to the Mexico Beach
Water System, paying connection cost
from Capital Outlay Park Improve-
ment Funds and monthly bill from
General Fund. The motion failed for
lack of a second. Following discus-
'sion, Branch moved the Board
authorize Gardner or another Jaycee
member to contact the City of Mexico
Beach, obtain cost information to
connect the park to the Mexico Beach
Water System and report to the Board
at the next meeting. Money seconded
the motion. The Chairman stated the
Board could consider authorization to
proceed upon receipt of this inform-
ation.
Money and Peters' discussed
building security at the park. Upon
inquiry of Gardner if some type
county liability insurance is available
to the volunteers performing con-
struction work at the park, the
Attorney suggested he and the Clerk
contact the County insurance carrier
to obtain information for the Board on
the availabiliyt of workers compens-
ation coverage for this type volunteer
work.
Traylor moved the Board make
an emergency purchase of $20,000 of
steel removed from the Dead Lakes
Dam, to pay when material is
received, from Road Department
Funds. Money seconded the motion
and it passed unanimously. Branch
asked that the minutes reflect what
this steel will be used for and Peters
asked the minutes reflect the change
in the amount the Board previously
approved purchase $7,000 to $20,000.
The Chairman requested it be noted in
the minutes the Board is authorizing
purchase of $20,000 of steel, for the
previously approved project to con-
struct a bulkhead at the George C.


Gaskin Park on the Apalachicola
River and due to the tremendous
amount of property being washed
away the previously approved amount
os $7,000 has been changed to $20,000.
Upon inquiry by Branch on
progress on project to name streets
and number houses throughout the
county, the Administrative Assistant
reported he had made two contacts,
Dan Christie to oversee the project
and an assistant. The Chairman asked
aren't house numbers already being-


issued. The Building Inspector replied
yes, a program was established three
years ago, has been implemented in
the beaches area per the Board's
instruction, and the same system
should be followed for the entire
county. The inspector stated all he
needed was direction from the Board
to continue. There followed a discus-
sion by Branch that all the Board had
directed Wells to do was coordinate a
program to be sure it was pursued, he
didn't care who did it. Upon inquiry by
the Chairman if Wells contacted
Manuel concerning this, Wells replied
Mainuel had come to his office while he
was on the phone. Christie has helped
with the system Manuel had estab-
lished and that is why he approached
him. The inspector discussed the need
for people to go to each house and
assign numbers. The Chairman dis-
agreed. Peters agreed with Manuel.
The. Sheriff discussed mandatory
house numbering for emergency
purposes.
The Chairman stated the Board
had not made house numbering
mandatory. Peters moved, due to the
fact in case of an emergency it might
be a good idea, the Board make house
numbering and street naming manda-
tory. Money' seconded the motion,
stating he agreed with the Sheriff.
Upon vote, the motion failed with
Peters and Money voting yes and
Branch, Traylor and the Chairman
voting no.
Branch stated since the park
property at Beacon Hill was in his
district, he moved the Board officially
name the park "Beacon Hill County
Park". Traylor seconded the motion
and it passed unanimously. Branch
asked that the Board send this
information by letter to the St. Joseph
Historical Society, which' was in-
volved in naming the park at one time.
At the request of Peters, the
Chairman directed the Deputy Clerk
to write Danny Raffield in appreci-
ation of opening his home to the public
as the Friends of the Library invited
the public to join and participate in
support of the Gulf County Library.
Peters requested the Attorney
read aloud a letter to be entered in the
minutes. A copy of the letter is on file
in the Clerk's office.
Peters presented his Certificate of
Completion of bus driver training and
inquired if this was required to drive
an emergency vehicle during a
disaster. The Sheriff replied in case of
an emergency all that is required is a
chauffeurs license. The Civil Defense
Director, Attorney,. and Sheriff dis-
cussed this being coordinated by the
Sheriff's office during an. emergency
and the Sheriff has on file a roster of
persons with chauffeur's license and
bus driver certification.
Traylor moved the Board adopt a
resolution requesting the Northwest
Florida Water Management District
remove rocks at the Dead Lakes Dam,
particularly in, the channel with the
county to have use of therocksi:Upon
vote, the motion passed unanimously.
The Chairman requested the
Administrative Assistant write Alton
Colvin, U.S. Corps of Engineers, the
Board is planning to construct dykes
at the end of George C. Gaskin Park, a

of Engineers and the Department of
Environmental Regulation and the
County requests assistance from the
Corps in construction and acquiring
permits since it has a boat and weight
station at this park.
The Chairman appointed the
following persons to an advisory
committee for the Community Deve-
lopment Block Grant application to
construct the Williamsburg Subdivi-
sion Water System. Veronica Carter,
Oletha Bowers, Betty Hand, Andrew
Gainer, Charles Gray and 'Louise

Upon motion by Peters, second by
Money, 'and unanimous vote, the
Board approved advertising for the
first public hearing on the Community
Development Block Grant applica-
tion.
The Chairman reported on the
present telephone system for the
North Gulf County Ambulance, every
ambulance squad member's home
telephone rings in an emergency;
however, St. Joseph Telephone an
Telegraph Company is in the process
of changing its system. The Chairman
requested the Administrative Assist-
ant obtain information on the new
system and report at the next
meeting.
The Attorney presented a copy of
the proposed ordinance concerning
signs located on county right of.way.
The Chairman requested Board mem-
bers review and the ordinance be held
for the next meeting.
The Chairman reported he re-
ceived a letter from Senator Lawton
Chiles, dated December 2, stating
applications for grant to restoi'e
historic buildings must be submitted
by December 15. The Chairman
requested the Administrative Assist-
ant write Senator Chiles there is very
little time to submit an application
this year; however, the Board would
appreciate him notifying the county
as soon as this is available next year
in order for Gulf County to prepare
an application.
The Administrative Assistant re-
ported the Division of Drivers License
notified him the modular office will be
available February 1 and request it be
located on the left, front side of the
courthouse, instead of near the back
of the property. Money stated he
wanted it located on the back of the
property. The Board agreed to the
view the site following the Board


meeting.
Ralph Rish, Baskerville-Donovan
Engineers, stated at the last Board
meeting the Board approved updating
the Fair Housing Ordinance to include
non-discrimination of the handicap-
ped and reported this ordinance
needed to be adopted as quickly as
possible as a public hearing would be
held on the Community Development
Block Grant Aplication for the Wil-

meeting in January. Upon motion by

Peters, second by Money, and unani-

following ordinance on an emergency
basis. The Chairman requested the
Deputy Clerk re-write the ordinance
and submit it to the Attorney.
The Chairman requested the
Board consider advertising to receive
bids for fill dirt to be given to the
County. Branch requested the min-
utes be researched as the Board had
experienced problems with this before
and agreed to discontinue bidding for
free dirt. Peters moved the Board
advertise to receive bids for free clay.
Birmingham gave the chair to vice
chairman Money, to second the
motion. Branch again requested the
minutes be checked, stating the Board
stopped this practice because, al-
though the Board could do it legally,
there were political and moral
problems, the County could spend a

actually receiving free dirt. The
Chairman requested the minutes be
researched, stating this is the reason
the Board agreed to go to the bid
system and the Board could set
requirements, such as no finished
projects, only dig a particular size
hole, and require good usable dirt for
road projects. In addition, the Board
could reject all bids if not in
compliance. Money agreed the Board
should set requirements. The motion
passed with the following vote.
Branch voted no, stating he under-
stood the county needed dirt, but
would rather see the county purchase
it than get into problems. Peters,
Birmingham, Traylor and Chairman
Money voted yes. Money then return-
ed the Chair to Birmingham.
The Chairman stated he had read
the Mosquito Control Director's ans-
wer letter to employee Johnny
Williams. The Director had followed
policy and the only other recourse if
for Williams to write the Board
requesting a change in policy.
There being no further business,
the meeting adjourned.

A soil test could spell the
difference between success and fail-
ure for those planning to plant a
spring vegetable garden. All too often,
gardeners assume an application of
fertilizer and helping of lime is just
what the doctor ordered for a
bol.ntiful harvest. This might be the
case for some gardens. But, for others
those steps could lead to trouble and
unnecessary expense. A soil test is the
only way to determine your garden's
exact needs.
A soil test can be a valuable guide
for home vegetable gardens. It will
indicate the soil's content of available
nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, cal-
cium and magnesium. It will deter-
mine the soil's pH the degree of
acidity or alkalinity. By analyzing the
results, a soil technologist can make
recommendations. My soil testing
information was provided by Exten-
sion Vegetable Specialist Jim Ste-
phens, of the University of Florida's
Institute of Food and Agricultural


proved for consideration by B. Walter Wilder,
Superintendent.

Sciences.
The first step is taking a soil
sample, which is relatively easy.
Check with your. County Extension
office concerning sampling bags,
tools, and testing services. Using a
sampling auger or a shovel, take
cores of soil four to six inches deep
from at least 10 different spots in the
garden. Avoid unusual areas, such as
wet spots and burn piles. Thoroughly
mix these cores together to make a
representative sample. Place this
mixture in a sampling bag, complete
the accompanying information sheet,
place in the box with the bag of soil
and deliver sample for testing. The
soil pH indicated by the test, will
determine the need for lime. Most
vegetables grow best in a soil with a
pH between 5.5 and 6.5 a level that's
slightly acid, of "sour". A pH of seven
is neutral. And, 7.1 or above is
alkaline, or "sweet". If a test
indicates your garden soil is too acid,
the laboratory probably will recom-
mend an application of lime to reduce
soil acidity.
Carefully follow the laboratory's
recommendations concerning the
amount of lime to add. Too much may
be just asbad as too little. Be sure you
allow enough time to add the lime
before planting. Dolomite is a good
liming agent. But because it reacts
slowly, it should be applied two or
three months prior to planting. If
you're in a hurry, use hydrated lime.
It can be applied only two weeks
before 'planting, provided it's tho-
'roughly mixed with' the s6il.
Although a soil test provides vital
information on fertilization and lim-
ing, there's a lot it won't reveal. For
example, a soil test doesn't show the
presence of insects, nematodes, or
diseases organisms. And, it can't
determine whether your garden is too
wet or too dry. So, it's just part of a
sound management program. You
also must choose the proper crop
varieties, buy good seed, plant at the
right time, water properly, and
control pests and diseases.
Reviewing briefly a soil test will


Planting
indicate the relative amounts of
nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, cal-
cium and magnesium in your garden
plot. as well as the pH level. You can
use this information to determine how
much of a particular analysis fertiliz-
er. and the quantity of lime if any to
apply. And. taking a soil sample is a
simple process you can perform
yourself, with advice from your
extension office. But remember, a soil
test is no path to a successful
vegetable garden. However, it is an
important step, and one that should be
taken well in advance of planting
time. So, if in doubt about your
garden, get your sample to the testing
laboratory as soon as possible.
