Overstreet Citizens Say They
Have Not Received Promised
Pilot Donnie Uzzle, back to camera, examines his damaged airplane along following a crash on a wooded road late Wednesday afternoon. Uzzle received
with Sheriff Al Harrison and several of his deputies Thursday morning, superficial cuts and lost a finger in the incident.
Plane Makes Forced Landing In Reserve
Pilot Walks to Highway After His Aircraft Flips Over In Landing Attempt
A crop duster and his plane came to an abrupt
halt while making an emergency landing on a fire
land in the Ed Ball Wildlife Management Area
Wednesday afternoon of last week.
Donnie Uzzle, of Rollingfork, Mississippi,
walked away !from the landing and wandered
around for nearly two hours before reaching
Highway 71 just after dark, following the crash,
according to Gulf County Sheriff Al Harrison.
Uzzle was flying his plane-a Tractor spraying
plane-here, from Mississippi to fertilize the
blueberry crop of FICO Farms near Wewahitchka.
Uzzle had missed the FICO landing stip adjacent to
their headquarters on the Overstreet Road and was
near Lake Wimico when he realized he had gone
past his destination. The veteran pilot said he was
also running low on fuel and elected to set his craft
down on one of the fire lanes and wait until morning.
The plane made perfect approach, landing
without mishap until his wheels got into soft dirt on
the shoulder of the fire lane. The plane started to
veer, causing the wing to begin striking young pine
trees adjacent to the road, causing more of a pull to
.one side. As the plane was nearing a stop, it
suddenly flipped over on its back.
Uzzle, who is a retired Army Major is a veteran
pilot with the Army and said this was his first
mis-hap with an airplane.
Uzzle started walking in the general direction of
Highway 71, and finally came out on the highway
near the Game Reserve gate, just as Sheriff Al
Harrison passed by in his car. Harrison stopped and
picked the pilot up.
Uzzle was taken to the hospital where he was
treated for multiple cuts and bruises and had his
right index finger tended. The finger had been
severed during the crash.
Sheriff Shoots Bull After 'It Bolts fidm Nolrges"

A bull gored an elderly Wewa-

Paving for 7
The Gulf County Commission
learned two things Tuesday night,
they felt they already knew. They
learned people all over the county are
upset about the condition of their
roads and they learned at least some
of the people are not overly eager to
pay an additional gasoline tax to
provide the money to make repairs to
A delegation from Overstreet bent
the Commission ear for about a half
hour Tuesday, telling tale after tale of
the deplorable condition of streets and
roads in that community.
Bill Carlisle was the main voice
behind the Overstreet expression of
discontent with the condition of their
roads, saying, "We were promised the
roads would be paved back during the
election, but nothing has been done".
Chairman Doug Birmingham,
who happens to be the Commissioner
in charge of the district which
contains Overstreet retorted, "I never
promised anybody a paved road in
Overstreet at any time, because I
knew this board didn't have the
money to pave them".
Carlisle backed down from his
claim of prior promises but continued
to belabor the sorry condition of
streets in Overstreet-e .pecially in
Commissioner Billy Branch inter-
jected a suggestion in the discussion,
by saying; "We can solve this problem
right quick if we tack an extra five
.cents on the gasoline tax levy to pave
streets: How many of you.folks would
be in favor of that (course of
One resident said she might favor
the extra tax if she was assured her
road would be paved.
Commissioner Nathan Peters
pointed out the county had some
$350,000 in its road budget for the year
and it cost some $56,000 a mile to pave
roads. "We need to get busy spending
what we have, but even so we can
pave only about seven miles of roads
in- the county".
Chairman Birmingham pointed
out the $56,000 per mile was the cost
for re-surfacing. "It costs more like
$100,000 per mile to pave new streets
like some of yours", he pointed out.
Birmingham went on to point out
the county has several miles of paved
roads which are breaking up and need
re-surfacing. "If we wait much longer
to repair these roads, we will have to
start all over with the job, rather than
re-surfacing", he pointed out. He
stressed that the number of miles of
roads in distress exceeded the finan-
cial ability to re-pave them.
The Board was united in agree-
ing to send the Road Superintendent to
Overstreet to meet with the people
there and decide what the Road
Department could do and couldn't do
to improve the situation. "We'll do
what we can to improve your streets",
BEACON HILL PARK
Port St. Joe Jaycee representa-
tives Jef Gardner and Gregg Burch
presented a drawing of the new,
Beacon Hill public park which they
are developing as a community
project. The county received owner-
ship of the 40 acre piece of property
from the federal government two
years ago, with the stipulation it be
developed as a park.
The Jaycees asked the county to
have the boundary line of the property
marked so they could proceed with
construction of a softball field to be
ready for summer play. The board
said the property had been surveyed
and they could have the Road
Department flag the boundary lines.

Waters e Being Purged
Making Ready for Election
Supervisor- of Elections Cora Sue Robinson has
started gettingg her records and voting lists ready for the
presidential election'series coming up during the year.
Part of this process includes purging the voting lists of
deceased and inactive names on the official rolls and
opening them up for new voters to register.
Robinson said, the county had some 7.200 registered
voters last year, but some of them were inactive and
Florida lavr requires her lists to be purged every election
' Robinson has mailed out re-registration cards to
every voter on her rolls since the first of the year. Voters
who wish to keep their status active, have only to sign the
cards and send or bring them back in to her office to
remain on the voting lists.
The Elecifnsm Supervisor told the Gulf County
Commission Tuesday there were still approximately 300
names on last year's rolls who had not returned the cards
and faced removal from the voting list if they are not
re-instated by February 6. "The books will be closed then
for the presidential preference primary which will be held
March 8 of this year", she said.
"People wishing to reinstate their voting status or
who wish to register for the first time may do so Monday
through Friday at my office in the Gulf County Courthouse
or at the Wewahitchka City Hall", Robinson said.
In order to give all who wish to register an opportunity
to do so. in a conceniraied effort to register voters during
the coming week. "We'll have the registration books at
various spots throughout the county next week to make it
more convenient for those who wish to register", the
The sc '.dule for special registration locations are as

In addition to the special registration stations,
Robinson has deputies placed strategically throughout the
county, where prospective voters may register any day of
the week except Sunday. These deputies are: Louise
Jones, Wewahitchka, 639-2472; Lola Simmons, Howard
Creek, 229-6876; Lynn Burge. Port St. Joe, 229-8789; Cora

State Needs to
Repair Its Roads
The Florida Department of Transportation is going through
the motions of deciding what roads and streets they will work on
during the coming five years. The DOT goes through this
exercise each and every year, adding another year of projects
to take the place of the projects which have been accomplished
during the past year of activities.
It's a good procedure the DOT has because it tends to bunch
their jobs together and allow for more economical use of what
road dollars we have to spend here in the state of Florida.
The district office in Chipley has been having hearings with
local government for the past couple of weeks, to determine the
needs of local government so they can work out a working
schedule taking into consideration the priorities of the several
projects and the money available for the financing.
Almost simultaneously, Transportation Secretary Kaye
Henderson has come up with a suggestion that the state law
makers consider instituting the toll road method of financing
some of the more expensive projects in order to get them on the
way sooner. If some sort of additional financing isn't worked
out, he claims, some of the needed projects will just sit there
until the money is available to do them.
All of this is leading up to one thing.
We know money is short and needs are great. Every
community and every county probably has an emergency or
two lying around they need the DOT to take some action on.
That seems to be the nature of roads. We're having trouble
financing their repair on a county level and the DOT is having a
problem with their financing on a state level.
Here in Port St. Joe we've needed two projects for some
time and we sure would like to see the DOT dig through the lint
in their pocket and come up with a few pennies to get them
Both state highways which come through Port St. Joe need
those portions which lie inside the city limits, resurfaced in the
worst kind of way. Highway 71 (the Boulevard) drives like an
obstacle course now, after being in service for at least 50 years.
Highway 98 isn't in much better condition inside the city. Both
need attention, promptly.
The five year planning of DOT should have included the
section of 98 which lies inside the city, some two years ago,
when approaches to the city were resurfaced. It would have
cost very little extra to have done the work then. Now, it'll cost
more to bring in a crew just to do that.
Unless, of course, they resurface Highway 71 while they
are here. That would be good planning on their part and a good
service to us.
We hope the DOT ean work this into 4heir ,plans. -
Nature's Secret Weapon
The final B-1 bomber has rolled -off the assembly lines.
America is now protected by this new replacement to the old
B-52 which served the nation for nearly 30 years.
The. nation purchased 100 of the new bombers from
Rockwell at a price tag of $28 billion.
That's a lot of money for bombers, but they tell us this new
machine can fly at tree-top level and avoid enemy radar
detection. It has all kinds of devices on board for protection
from attacking planes, ground fire, radar jamming, etc. The
plane is the most sophisticated one ever built. It can deliver
nuclear warheads into enemy territory undetected, unload and
return home. It's a sweet bird, we read.
As a matter of fact, the plane is practically indestructible,
as a quarter billion dollar airplane should be.
But keep the birds away from it. A bird smashed through
the wing of a B-1,recently, sparking a fire, which caused the
plane to crash.
So, the B-1, the hope of our country for protection, may be
immune to enemy forces... so long as they don't send a flock of
buzzards after it.
Hunker Down with Kes
by Kesley Colbert
And Sometimes the Smoke Gets In Your Eyes
O.K., I agree, it's been a little
colder than usual. And if the eyewit-
ness weatherman is correct, it's
gonna get a mite colder. Shucks, I
don't mind a little cold weather. It
gets the old blood flowing-makes you
step a little more lively. Besides, it's
good coon hunting weather. Instead of
talking about how cold it might get I
have decided to just enjoy it. My wife
interrupted my thoughts, "Kes, it's
getting colder, let's build a fire."
Did you catch that "let's" in her
statement? As in let us build a fire. I
think the meaning here is that me and
her are to build a fire together. Listen,
we all know how that "us together"
part would turn out. I stopped reading
George Orwell's "The War Commen-
taries," got up and turned down the
T.V., spit some tobacco juice kinda' at
the cuspidor in the corner and said,
"Come on, Dad, build a fire."
Josh and Jess said almost in unison.
Goodness gracious, they're gang-
ing up on me. "Now listen boys-"
"Oh no, here comes the part about
back when he was our age and all they
had for heat was that one old fireplace
in the living room."
Son of a gun, have I told them this
story before? That was a beautiful fire
place and I certainly enjoyed it. And I
spent a lot of time in the winter just as
close to it as I could get. Mother would
parch peanuts over that fire and we'd
sit around and talk about what we
were going to be when we grew up as
we munched on the peanuts and
watched our hulls burn. Sometimes
she'd pull out that black pan with the
long handle. She'd pour in some
popcorn, place that screen over the
pan and stick it in the fire. When the
corn would get to popping, Mom would
shake the pan around so all the
kernels would pop. If we'd just had a
Roy Rogers video we'd have had it
made. Heck, if we'd have just had a
Yes sir, we loved that fireplace.
But I also have some other memories.
Like having to get up during the
middle of "Captain Midnight" and go
out to the wood pile. You had to move
the top couple of rows of logs over
'cause they were always wet and dig
down to the middle for the dry ones.
You ever load an armful of wood when
your fingers were so cold you couldn't
feel them? Then tip toe up some wet
steps and try to open the back door
with both arms full? "Captain Mid-
night" would be over and the four logs
would burn down before you could
Right about bedtime Dad would
go out and bring in a big one. This
back log would burn all night and we'd
have coals ready for the morning. The
living room was usually hot or at least
comfortable. Leon, David and I slept
at the other end of the house. That fire
didn't throw much heat down the hall
past my parents room and into ours.
As a matter of fact it didn't throw any
heat back to our room. We had so
many blankets and quilts on that bed
we couldn't turn over, but we'd make
it through the night.
Mornings were always a blast.
We'd dress for school in front of that
fire. Your front side would burn up
while your back side had goose bumps
on top of goose bumps. When your
front side got so hot you couldn't stand
it any longer or your back side got too
cold you'd turn around and reverse
the process. I always dreamed of a
button you could push and have the
"just right temperature" in every
corner of the house.
Boy howdy, did my Mom love that
fireplace. As a matter of fact you can
bet she's a got it going right now as
you read this. At the first sign of cold
weather-a leaf falling, report of snow
in Canada, a goose flying south-she'd
crank it up. She felt it added a homey
touch. You know she was right.
My wife is a lot like my Mother,
she just loves a fire. But we've got one
of those buttons I used to dream about
and our popcorn comes out of the
microwave. I've about convinced her
that we don't need a fire. I'm going to
work on her some more just as soon as
I get back-the fire is low and it's my
turn to get the wood.

Crop Duster's Crash Stirs A Few Memories of Somt
WE'RE READING A LOT about
air travel these days. We read about
the baggage that didn't arrive when
the passenger did. We read about
about the schedules being merely
numbers on a piece of paper and not
necessarily a guide as to when an
airplane will take off or arrive at its
I read several syndicated writers
every week and nearly all of them
have given the airlines "the bird" for
their lacadasical manner in bringing
these much-traveled folk to and from
their destinations. To read some
writers, one would think the particu-
lar airplane he happens to be
travelling on has been delayed just to
make the author passenger late for his
Airlines have been catching it in
the neck these days and probably
some of it was deserved and some
wasn't. That's the way it usually goes
in those cases.
I don't travel the airways enough
to be bothered by the falling apart of
the airlines' scheduling system and
the grumbling it is causing. One thing
the airlines have in their favor is that
disgruntled Americans can't start
"buying foreign" to teach the airlines
a lesson, like they did with the
automobile and electronics.
++ + + +
ANOTHER PIECE OF publicity
about airlines these days seems to be
that this is the season of the crash.
Almost every week for the past
month, I have picked up a paper and
read about another crash somewhere
in the world. There have been crashes
in the United States out west, up north
and over near Tallahassee, where a
private plane didn't quite make the
runway. The crashes which have
fatalities are the ones which make the
news and account for only part of the
airplanes which go to the ground
before their pilots intended them to.
LAST WEEK, WE had our
airplane crash here in Gulf County.
Every once in a great while a plane
from Tyndall or Eglin will go down in
the deep woods in this part of the
Panhandle, because this part of
Florida is their training ground..
Military aircraft are supposed to
go down every once in a While. Even
so, in most instances in these parts,
the crew members eject and para-
chute to safety when their plane quits,
they get lost or run out of fuel.
We don't have many air fatalities
Last week, a pilot flying a small
crop-dusting plane was hunting FICO
Farms' runway about dark and
couldn't find it. I guess, rather than
try to fly trough the Tyndall air
corridor to the lighted field of Panama
City, he decided to sit down on a dirt
road in the woods and spend the night.
To pilots of small planes, that's no
tough maneuver. You can sit most of
those planes down in an above
average sized front yard and have
room to spare. So down came the
pilot, who was probably not familiar
with fire control lines-on which he
was trying to land-and it was a little
rougher than he thought, causing the
plane.to flip over when it landed.
A FRIEND OF MINE a few years
back got me interested in flying and
we used to take off to Apalachicola
two or three evenings a week to fly in
his small Aeronca. The plane was an
old job, but it would fly.
All these air mishaps of recent
weeks and months reminded me of
two I had with the smaller planes back
during the days when I didn't have
sense enough to be scared.
The friend and I took off one day
for an afternoon of flying around.
Beforeowe found ourselves inside
a cloud and we couldn't tell which way
was up and which was down. That was
a hairy few minutes.
Then, one day, we flew over to
Panama City to have some new spark
plugs put in the engine. As we revved
up to take off, the engine seemed to
be a bit sluggish, burning off the
coating on the new plugs. We roared
down the dirt runway and took to the
air, just making it over some pines at
the end of the strip, because we didn't
have full power.
That still didn't put a damper on
my flying fever.
Some time later, I was taking
flying lessons from the same guy who
had put the plugs in the engine and we
took off for one of the lessons in a
souped up Piper Cub.
Just about the time we got over
the tree tops, there was an explosion
under the hood and the engine started
skipping. The instructor grabbed the
controls, twisted the small plane
around and came in downwind in a
He was so competent and seemed
so in control, I never was scared and
went right on up again.
A couple of months later, near
Christmias, I read where this same -
instructor had taken off at that same
airport in a heavier airplane and ran -
out of gas just about the time he got
airborne. He crashed and was killed in
That one got my hard-headed
attention and I never took another

A Relaxing Evening at Home
ALL OF YOU THAT are unmarried pay attention. I'm about to tell
you what it's like to be married, have three children and spend a relaxing
evening at home.
My favorite hobby is writing this column each week. It seems,
however, that it gets more difficult as time goes by. Usually I get a jump
on it and do it Saturday or Sunday afternoon. This weekend was a little
different ard I didn't get to finish the articles I started. I decided to wait
until the last minute-which is right now-and do it.
MONDAY NIGHT IS the last minute and here I am. This is my
relaxing evening at home. Let me give you the details, unmarrieds, so
you will know -what you have to look forward to.
I sat down at this typewriter a little after five this afternoon and
started writing. I was about half way through an article when my son
came in to tell me he was going to scout meeting, but first he wanted me
to come watch him hit a golf ball from our yard over the baseball field.
That took about 15 minutes and another ten minutes to get my head back
About that time a lady came by collecting for a charity. She was very
nice and we visited briefly and she was on her way. Another ten minutes
clutching and gearing up.
I had typed about two sentences when the mechanic who had worked
on one of our trucks called and said he had failed to put coolant in our
truck after he serviced the radiator. It took me an hour and a half to drain
the radiator and add coolant. Another fifteen minutes getting geared up.
One paragraph later I remembered that we were out of a few items in
the kitchen. Since my wife works evenings on our business, it is now my
job to keep.the kitchen reasonably stocked. I had to run to the store for
milk, bread, cereal (oatmeal), bananas and orange juice. That took me
an hour and a half because I always get to talking to the ladies at the
market and I can never get away from that butcher.
I returned and started a new article. Halfway down the page my
daughter, who was sick with the bug all day, called me, "I'm hungry now,
Daddy. Will you fix me a bowl of soup? Just as I set the soup on the table
and had the napkin firmly tucked under her chin, in comes number two
son from'scout meeting. He had to give a detailed report because he had
just made tenderfoot. Another fifteen minutes and another article
IT WAS ON MY way back from tucking son and daughter in bed that I
realized I had forgotten something while at the store; I had forgotten to
pick up dishwashing detergent and every dish in the house was dirty. I
, hung to the words of Scarlett, though, and decided to worry about that
Everything is quiet now and I think I have picked a subject on which I
can start and finish an article. But first, I want to remind all of you

heart of the message was that it is

Our speaker, James Pollard, is a
retired banker and a former treasurer
for the Episcopal Diocese. He spoke of
more than a dozen ways that any
Christian could make gifts to his
church. Most of the listeners were
surprised to learn that there were so
many methods to make money

myself, needs this kind of advice in

really should make a will. There is
really no other way to be sure our
wishes will be carried out. Several
texts have come to my mind over the

importance of making plans for the
arrangements. But there is a remedy.
As I mentioned above, the heart of
the issue is to make a will. In your will

St. Paul's first letter to Timothy
gives us some very good advice on
these matters. One very poignant
verse is the one that says, "If anyone
does not provide for his relatives, and
especially for his own family, he is
worse than an unbeliever. The KJV
uses "infidel" for "unbeliever." Here,
Paul is telling Timothy (and all
responsible pastors) to give this
teaching in the church so that the
people may be "without reproach."

will be grateful to know that your
concern reaches beyond the grave.
On the other hand, without a will
your assets will be at the whim of the

followed. Your loved ones will be
exposed to unnecessary risks. And
you will be unable to direct any gifts to
anyone or any organization.
' The will you write can be tailored
to your needs and desires. But it
should be done carefully to avoid any
dispute after you are gone and can't
be asked about any specific interpre-

been able to discern, the best way to
assure that your desires are carried
out is to hire an attorney to assist you
as you write your will.
Toward the end of I Timothy, St.
Paul says, "0 Timothy, guard what
has been entrusted to you." This could
be good advice to all of us. We need to
guard our material valuables, just as
we guard and preserve our spiritual
values. Why not join me this week in
reviewing your present will, or
making a first will? Your loved ones
and your church will rejoice in your
concern for their future.

St. Joe Container Leaves Mark In Unlikely Places
One of Its Better and Most Unusual
Customers Is the Mushroom-Growing Complex In Gadsden County
Sometimes its surprising to follow
the things one has done and see where
they went and what they accomplish-
ed during their useful life.
Port St. Joe is largely a manufac-
turing town and makes a variety of
products, even though most of the
items made here have their direct ties
to the forestry industry. This isn't a
town which manufactures lumber or
plywood, or some other direct product
made of wood, but items made here-
started as a tree in the vast woodlands
which are prevalent in this portion of
Paper and paper products and
derivatives are the main items which
pour out of Port St. Joe plants.
There' is raw paper of the type
used in corrugated boxes and box
parts. Of course, the coarse rolls of
paper have. other.uses also, such as in
roofing paper, corrugated paper wall
sections, insulation, etc. By and large,
though, the main item for which paper
manufactured in Port St. Joe is used
for is gobbled up by the box making
Even boxes and their manufac-
ture is big in Port St. Joe.
After the paper is made and the
boxes are manufactured, the gunk or
residue which is left over from the
paper making process is made into
oils and chemicals which go into a lot
of items from oleomargarine to
synthetic rubber. Along the way
portions of this waste product be-
comes important chemicals in. the
manufacture of paint, condiments,
flavorings, plastics, waterproofing,
But, back to basic products and

out of Port St. Joe by the millions are
There are plain kraft colored
corrugated boxes. There are nice,
white boxes. There are elaborately
printed and shaped boxes and there
are those which are plain with a line
or two of plain type on the side. Boxes
of all sizes, shapes, configurations,
and dimensions. Big boxes, small
boxes, waterproof boxes, crush-proof
boxes, re-useable boxes, throw away
boxes. Boxes to pack anything from
motor oil to lipstick.
One of the more common boxes to
be coming from St. Joe Container
Division these days are boxes to pack
delicate mushrooms in.
This association with the mush-
room has prompted St. Joe Container
to designate Quincy Farms in Gads-
den County as their "customer of the
month" for January.
How does a mushroom producer
get picked as a "customer of the
month"? you' ask. One of the reasons
is the number of boxes this industry
uses. It will probably surprise you as
you continue to read and see some of
the numbers in the mushroom produc-
tion business by our neighbors in
There is one production point at
Quincy Farms-a- building with no
windows and very few doors which
covers five acres. That's a pretty
good-sized building and the entire
thing is climate controlled and used to
How many mushrooms can the
Well, there are producers in the
United States other than Quincy
Farms, and that one grower produces
some 54,794 pounds of mushrooms per
day, seven days a week, 365 days a
year. That totals out to some 20
million pounds of the tasty spores per
year. Consider how light a mushroom
is and let your imaginagion run wild
for just a moment and you can figure
that 20 million pounds of mushroom
would make quite a big pile.
Quincy Farms has a staff of 410
employees which process this product
and pack it for shipping. They have to

Quincy Farms worker grades mushrooms getting them ready to pack for
mushrooms ready for market.
After they are harvested in the
vast, dark rooms of the five acre
building, the mushrooms are kept at a
temperature of 34 degrees until they
are packed. When the packing process
starts, the mushrooms are taken from
the 34 degrees to the packing room,
which is kept, at 64 degrees, then
packed and placed back in 34 degree
temperature. This entire process
takes three minutes. If the mush-
rooms are left in the 64 degree

minutes, they tend to discolor.

By 1894 the tower was again in
the breakers. Giving up on the Cape,
the Board chose Black's Island in
the bay as the 'fifth site. After
finishing the tower foundation and
the keeper's house, money ran out.
RETURN TO CAPE
Returning to the Cape, the
tower was placed near its original
site. As the years passed the
constant currents slowly carried the
sand to the northwest; stealing from
the Cape and giving to St. Joseph's
Point. So, by 1918 it was time to
move again; this time 1857 feet from

our scuba gear and swam slowly
downward to investigate. What
awaited us was not a storm battered
pile of scattered bricks but large
sections of still intact lighthouse.
The base, even though it had settled
twenty feet still stood solid and
upright. Swimming cautiously over
several giant stingrays we came to
the steps that, once led from the
keeper's connected house into the
tower. Lying among the stingrays
and broken walls were the iron
spiral steps that once led up the
sixty-five foot tower. In the pale-
green light that filtered from above
we peered under fallen walls for
artifacts to keep as souvenirs of our
'search. Instead, ghostly dark
shapes, scared by a new intruder,
left clouds of silt as they scurried
away to seek safety in other
recesses of the old tower.
Finding no artifacts and with
visibility rapidly diminishing we
left this gloomy realm; leaving it to

Harry Faulk, with the marketing
division of Florida Power Corpora-
tion, revealed a new service being
furnished by Florida Power Corpora-
tion to the Rotary Club Thursday.
Faulk, who has been working for
years in this area advising people how
to utilize electric energy more effi-
ciently, had a new wrinkle last
Thursday. Now, he is showing power
customers how they can be paid for
not using electricity at certain times
during the day.
Faulk explained that Florida
Power is combatting the peak user
times with an ingenius device which
interrupts the electric service to high
user appliances during high demand
hours in the day and pays the userifor
allowing the interruption to take
The device, which is installed free
of charge by Florida Power, is
attached to air conditioners, central
electric heaters, water heaters and
other high use appliances. If, during
certain time periods of the day, the
use begins to out-strip the production
of electricity, the company can utilize
a radio signal to turn off one or more
of these appliances in every home
containing the radio device for 10 to 20
minutes. These interruption times are
scheduled to happen during the time
of day they are least likely to be
depended on for heavy duty.
' "As an added incentive to install
the devices, the company will pay the
customer for having the devices in
their home", Faulk said. The inter-
ruptions may not even be made during
the month, but the customer gets his
