installation dinner, catered by the
Lions Club.
In making his annual report,
Griffin pointed to several accom-
plishments for the year.
The item which will have the
largest impact on the county as a
whole was the announcement con-
cerning the establishment of a
forest work camp near Cypress
Creek on the Howard Creek Road.
The new $2 million camp will have
an annual budget of some $1.8
million which will be spent in the
county in wages and services.
Griffin said the Chamber was
ending the year in- very- good
financial condition. "We have -se-
cured grants a"nd fund assistance in
the amount of $7,500. to start

Board


Files Protest




With State DOT


Make Official Request to Place Highland

View Bridge Construction Back On Schedule


The Gulf County Commission
voted unanimously Tuesday morning
to strongly oppose the moving of the
.Highland View bridge construction
project from its place in state
priorities.
It was revealed last week that the
bkidge-while still in the state's plans
for construction-had been delayed
r up to three years because of a lack
*f funds. DOT officials said the
shortage of funds came about because
bther :projects had been bid in at
prices higher than anticipated, caus-
i ng a short-fall in the money available
.to accomplish their five-year work'
plan.
In addition to opposing the
construction priority change, the
.Commission also asked that the state
agency make a special effort to notify
,-Aocal governments immediately of

any such changes in plans made by
them.
"I had to find out about the bridge
construction plans being delayed from
my neighbor in the next block",
Commissioner Billy Branch said.
"Here I am, a County Commissioner
in charge of such things, living right in
the shadow of the proposed bridge and
irhd to find out it had been cancelled
fromnV a private citizen. There's
p something wrong there":
Attorney William J. Rish told
eh d been imTallahasseeon-
aoth itlin the last few days
aid learetthat matter had already
begin taken care of. "You aren't the
only one complaining about that",
Ris( skid.
WANT BRIDGE REINSTATED
In Weir complaint about a change
in construction priorities, the, Board
has asked that the bridge be replaced
in its former time-frame rather than
delaying it for three years.
Branch, who made the suggestion
(before any other Commissioner
could get the chance) stated, "A
recent traffic count on U.S. Highway
98 showsia dramatic increase in the
traffic flow in just the last year or two.
This matter alone should justify our
position in wanting the project
reinstated'', Branch said.
If the DOT doesn't respond
favorably to the current request being
drawn up ;by the Commission, the
board is prepared to take further
steps to try and rescue the project for
beginning in the 1989-90 fiscal year as
planned.
GASOLINE TAX
In other rpad related business, the
Commission 'came to grips with a


possible gasoline tax levied in Gulf
County to finance needed road work
inside the county and the municipali-
ties. Even though the Comnitssion has
been looking for "other sources" of
revenue to pave several roads in
decrepit condition, the matter of


levying the extra tax remains hanging
in the background as that possible
"other source" of money when all
other avenues have failed.
Commissioner Nathan Peters
suggested Tuesday the board place

Mexico Beach Considers

Additional Utility Tax

For Use On Road Paving


The City of Mexico Beach took a
second step Tuesday night to provide
a means of correcting the conditions
of their sub-standard streets 'and
roads Tuesday night.
While other communities in the
P ihiandle are struggling with the
problem of diminishing state money y
for road work and a deteriorating
road and street network, the City of
Mexico Beach has taken steps to
provide the funding to get the job done
in their community.
The City already has some
$101,000 in road paving projects under
way this year, financed by the
city's share of the four cent .county
gasoline tax levied last year, a utility
tax against water and power and a
$5.00 a front foot levy against the
property owner.
To further their road paving
project, the Commission took an
additional source of revenue under
consideration Tuesday night to raise
more money for paving.
Within a couple of months, the
Commission hopes to equalize their
utility tax, spreading it also to natural
and propane gas and telephone
services.
Presently the City levies an eight
percent tax on water and two percent
tax on electric power, with the
proceeds earmarked for paving.
"I don't know any other way to get
our streets paved unless we pay for
the job", Commissioner Al Cathey


said.
In its re-worked utility tax
program, the City will be trying to
come up with a total of $30,000 each
year to be used for paving purposes.
... REBUTS CHARGES :-.;";
In other business at the meetiig,
<;tity manager .John McLnnis spent
approximately 20 minutes reading a
detailed answer to recent charges
made by Commissioner Bill Horn with
the ethics commission' of the state of
Florida.
Horn had charged commissioner
Cathey, police chief Jeff Sellers and
the city manager with a violation of
the ethics rules and regulations.
Commissioner Horn has asked the
state ethics commission to investigate
the matter in a petition filed with
them early last month,
In his lengthy and detailed answer
to the charges made against he and
others, Mclnnis utilized the Mexico
Beach official records and a number
of notarized statements by' citizens
and former public ,officials which
rebutted Horn's charges.
McInnis detailed answer to the
charges will be sent to the state ethics
commission for their examination.
Commissioner Cathey filed a
similar type answer to Horn's charges
last month. Both city officials waived
their rights to confidentiality in
making their answers to the charges,
public.


Fire Damages Boat


At Raffield Dock

After suffering one destructive fire within the past few years, Raffield
Fisheries have an added incentive to fear the destructiveness of an uncontrolled
blaze after suffering some quarter of a million dollars in damages to one of its
fishing fleet early Saturday morning.
The Fisherman's Pride, the flagship of a new design of boat being
incorporated in the Raffield fleet, was heavily damaged by the fire which was
believed to have started in the engine room of the vessel.
Gene Raffield, manager of the Raffield complex, told.The Star the fire was
discovered by a passer-by about 1:00 a.m., Saturday. The boat was un-manned
and tied up to the Raffield dock after a week of fishing. "The boat has three
levels to it, and the fire apparently started in the bottom area. We don't really
know what caused it. We only know it completely destroyed the engine room
and the electrical equipment on board", Raffield said.
Fire departments from Highland View, White City, St. Joe and a foam
truck from Tyndall Air Base were called out to try and put the stubborn blaze
out. "We just couldn't send men down into the area of the fire because it was too
dangerous", Raffield said.
To finally stop the blaze, a hole was cut in the hull of the boat and it was
allowed to fill with water and settle to the bottom.
Raffield said the boat will be reclaimed and put back into service. Work has
already started on raising the vessel and replacing damaged areas.
"The rebuilding will probably take four to six months", Raffield said. The
boat was uninsured because of the extremely high premiums on such policies.


Fireman brave bitter cold early Saturday morning to fight fire on "Fisherman's Pride".

Asking DOT



to Reconsider

Even though we may realize there is a legitimate reason for
delaying the construction of a new high rise bridge at Highland
View, there is still no way we can gracefully accept such a
decision by the state Department of Transportation.
Complaining about the change in events which came about
suddenly last week, we can only express dismay and
disappointment. But, we can also resolve ourselves to support
every effort by our local public officials to get that decision by
DOT changed and the bridge placed back on its original
schedule.
We realize that all those other locations which had their
bridge construction delayed, along with Gulf County, are
chagrined over the matter. They (whoever they might be) are
also disappointed they must wait untold months before they can
have a traffic crossing for a stream, river or canal which will be
dependable, but we will wager our situation is truly a bit
different from the situation with most of the projects which
have also been delayed.,
For instance, we wonder how many of the bridges which
will remain on the schedule for next year's- construction start
are bridges which allow continuity of traffic to flow on major
east-west federal highway arteries? It might shock some to
come to the realization that most of the people going east and
west across the Panhandle do not take Interstate 10. A great
deal of these motorists, including some vital service traffic, still
comes over Highway 98, which is still a federal highway. This
should give us some points for preferential consideration.
We wonder, also, how many of those bridges still in the
construction schedule, but not started, have been in such
deplorable condition as the Highland View bridge for so long a
time? We would invite an examination as to age of structures
and susceptibility of their falling into the water one of these
days.
We don't see Gulf County as desiring a new bridge at this
vital point in our transportation system merely to say we have a
new bridge, convenience or just to keep up with the Joneses.
Gulf county has been begging for that bridge for at least the
past 10 to 12 years from the sheer necessity of having a
dependable way to get in and out of the county.
We'd ask the DOT to reconsider their decision based on the
criteria of need and importance.


Hooray for Jim!

State Attorney Jim Appleman had made the news in recent
days for pulling a young boy away from a girls' bathroom
window in which. his daughter was dressing along with a group
of her fellow cheerleaders.
Being a father of a couple of girls lWhderte that age at one
time,~ W~ X-id6iidiitAd Ap man's thoughts at the time. We
ban sympathize with his actions.
Apparently, there are some who cannot. They either have
all boy children or don't care about what happens to their girl
children.
Appleman has been catching a little flack and more than a
few raised eyebrows in recent days about his reaction to this
"boyish prank". Even the principal of the school where the
incident occurred seems to disagree with Appleman's actions in
an off-handed sort of way.
Let's put ourselves into a corner now. We firmly support
Mr. Appleman's actions at the time and admire his restraint. In
the same situation, we don't know whether or not we could have
been as even-tempered as was Appleman. To utilize an old
Panhandle redneck phrase, "We would have probably tried to
snatch a knot in that little rascal's neck".
In the final analysis, the young man will probably avail
himself of the very next opportunity to take a peek into the girl's
restroom. He seems to have some support for his activity from
some fairly high places.
The next time he does, though, he might not have a person
grab him by the belt who is considering what reaction is legal
and what is not.

Yogi Had the Best Card I've Ever Seen


I guess one of the things I didn't
like the most was having to give a
card to every person in the room.
Remember? Miss Belle, a week
before, had announced that each stu-
dent would buy a valentine for
everyone in the class. "Let's see boys
and girls there are twenty-nine of
us so that means each individual will
receive TWENTY-NINE valentines.
Isn't this so exciting?"
I could hardly contain myself. I
was gonna have to give Bobby
Brewer, Ricky Hale and Buddy Wig-
gleton a card that said "Love,
Always" or "Be My Valentine". Gosh,,
I hated the third grade. And Miss
Belle, bless her heart, was a'getting
more excited each day. About all we
did that second week of February was
cut out president's heads and plan our
Valentine Day party.
At lunch on Thursday we huddled
in the back comer and between
mouthfuls of cornbread and butter-
milk we discussed our plight. Yogi
brought' up something I hadn't
thought about. He allowed as how we
guys could give each other cards
'cause we know it doesn't mean a
thing we're not going to read 'em or
keep 'em or cherish 'em, we're just
making the old lady happy. "But," he
ended up, "I'm not giving a card to
Vicki Fields or LaRenda Bradfield -
they take this stuff seriously."


I thought of Mary E. Pendleton.
The ugliest girl in the third grade. She
had sent me special cards the last two
years. Embarrassed the fool out of
me. She'd even worn a dress the year
before on Valentine's Day. Can you
believe that? I could feel a two week
case of the flu coming on. Listen, I
don't think ya'll have gotten the pic-
ture yet. I'm talking major ugly here.
And I've got to give her a card that
says, "Be Mine Forever"? Even the
buttermilk began to taste a little sour.
Walking home that afternoon we
began to hammer out a plan. The next
morning we got Monte Grissom who
was the poorest kid in the class to talk
to Miss Belle. Now Monte's folks if
you can believe this, had less than we
did. If the church hadn't helped them
some they couldn't a'made it.
Monte was as poor as Mary E. was
ugly. We coached him to kind'a hang
his head and shuffle his feet and act as
embarrassed as he could when he ex-
plained to Miss Belle that he couldn't
afford them fancy store bought cards
- could he please make his own?
You know how those teachers are.
Miss Belle wouldn't have embarras-
sed a student for all the tea in China.
As soon as the bell rung and class
began she announced that you could
buy cards or you could be inventive
and make up your own. She, of course,
made that "make 'em up yourself" of-


fer to the whole class so as not to
single out Monte. As Henry Ford said
when the first T-model rolled off the
line, "We're in business boys."
Miss Belle, really getting into the
spirit of the thing gave us classroom
time to work on our cards. All the girls
had store bought cards, all the guys
rolled their own. And we worked at it,
too. We made 'em square, rectangu-
lar, round and heart shaped. And we
Used that red construction paper so
they looked like real valentine cards.
On the outside of the card we'd put
"'Happy Valentine" or some other
Such original greeting. On the inside
of the cards going to the boys we'd put
nothing. We weren't about to put
"Hugs and Kisses" and "Be Mine
Forever" on a card and give it to a
boy. However, we did the girls up
right. On their cards we had special
valentine greetings like, "Yo, Fatso",
"Take A Hike, Beanhead" and "Ugly
Is Forever". Yogi gave Vicki a card
that showed a woman with an arrow
stuck through her head. The caption
read, "I missed." We gave that card
an Oscar.
We guys loved it, the girls were
mad and Miss Belle gave us that talk
about growing up and one day we'll
want to send cards to our girl friends.
Of course Miss Belle was right. Well
almost right. I've never had an urge
to send Mary E. anything.


Respectfully,
Kesley
P.S. If you will remind me, next year
at Valentine's, I'll tell you about the
first box of Russell Stover I tried to
give a girl.

In the Bonaventure Is An Adventure


One thing about that fancy room I
had was that it had a suite of
bathrooms..
The living and bedroom facilities
were all together in one room, but that
bathroom was something else. It
almost made me want to move the TV
into one of the bathroom cubicles and
stay in there, but a chance to lie in bed
before bed time drug me to the living
area.
Let me tell you about that
bathroom. This must be what the
well-to-do get for all their money
which us regular folks don't get.
To begin with, it was considerably
larger than my bathroom at home. As
a matter of fact, it was larger than my
living room at home.
Actually, the bathroom was three
rooms. There was the room where one
washes one's face, brushes one's teeth
and shaves one's jaws. It had a long
mirror, two lavatories (sinks) and a


piece of soap shaped like 4 sea shell
lying in the soap dish.
In the potty room, there were two
potty places; one beside the other. It
reminded me of the old outdoor two
hole comfort station we had when I
was a kid.
I couldn't figure out what the
second potty was for, unless the more
well-to-do go the bathroom in pairs.
Someone told me later that one is
a potty and the other is a bottom
washer.
I don't know, really.
Then there was the bath suite. A
shower stall and bath tub rounded out
that portion of the rest room suite for
which I had paid a sinful amount to
stay in for one night. Why, my house
payment didn't amount to as much as
I had to spend on this fancy room with
its three-room rest room suite.
Anyhow, I enjoyed this one night
stand with the well-to-do, but I
probably won't be going back for at


least a year. The next time out,
though, I am going to use that bottom
washer, just to make sure I get my
money's worth.

POSTSCRIPT- almost everyone
I have met since Monday of last week
has congratulated me over winning
the VCR door prize at the St. Joe
Papermakers Credit Union annual
meeting last Monday night.
Nobody was more surprised than
I was when Johnny Linton called out
my name as the winner. He had to call
it out the second time in order for me
to be sure I heard correctly the first
time.
When I went to the front to claim
my prize, I remarked to Harry Lee
Smith I was probably the only one in
town who didn't already have a VCR.
Harry Lee piped right back, "I
don't have one either".
I should have known.

PHANTRY
by Wendell Campbell



Diets and Other Trash
I AM ABOUT TO faint from hunger as I type these words. As a matter
of fact, I can hardly lift a finger to type I'm so weak. You see, I'm on a
diet! '
I am not alone. Everyone, it seems, is on a diet these days. I know
people who are twenty or more pounds underweight .and look like they
just escaped from a concentration camp, who are dieting. "I just need to
lose about ten more pounds right here," they will say, pointing to their
flat stomachs.
If there's anything I hate, it's a skinny show-off!

I HAVE BEEN ABLE to control or quit some bad habits in my life. I
stopped smoking (cold turkey) after having smoked Winstons for over
twenty years. I also went three years, four months, sixteen days, four
hours and. thirty nine minutes without taking a drink of any kind; with
alcohol in it, that is. At the same time I limited myself to one cuss word a
day.
Controlling my bad language was harder than quitting the cigarettes
and alcohol, as you know if you've ever hit your finger with a hammer or
missed a "gimme" putt.
There was a time during this period that I didn't say a bad word for
over two months. It ended one day when I had a perfect round going
coming.in to number eighteen and took a triple-bogey, seven. I cussed a
blue streak! It didn't help my score but I sure did feel better.
THE ONE HABIT that has plagued me for quite some time now and is
the hardest I have ever faced is the old "food devil!" During the last ten
years of my life, I have tried every diet there is and some I made up
myself. If there's one that I haven't tried it's because it called for snake,
meat salad, and I ain't gonna eat snake meat, and I don't care how it's
prepared.
There is only one way, in my opinion, to lose excess poundage. The
only way to reduce body weight is to push the chair back from the table
before your stomach does. For me, the only way is to never sit down in the
chair. You see, I'm a foodaholic; once I take the first bite, I eat until I
can't get the fork to my mouth.
Some people have a drink or two before dinner to enhance their
appetite. I maintain a substantial appetite without drinking. A drink or
two only numbs my stomach and prolongs my ability to stuff myself.
One bad thing about diets and having to lose weight is that not eating
by itself will not cause you to lose weight. To lose consistently and
effectively you must also exercise. Exercise, they say, helps curb your
appetite.
This must.work for soine people, but when I exert myself physically,
.for an hour or two, I become even more hungry. I am then tired and
hungry and even more miserable than before.

MIDDLE-AGED,; OVERWEIGHT, men are subject to die suddenly
from the number one killer in America; a heart attack.
I'm middle-aged and several pounds overweight. I must lose a few
pounds and it's going to be extremely difficult. If you see me on the street,
.please don't invite me to lunch or home for dinner. I can find more than
enough food on my own.
DIETS, THE CURSE of the middle aged glutton!

As the deadline closed January 28
for claimants to file their grievance
against St. Joe Paper Company in an
11-year-old racial discrimination suit,
final figures have finally been arrived
at for complying with a court ordered
settlement of the claim.
claim.
With approximately 200 past and
present black employees filing claims
of discrimination in job assignment
and promotion opportunities and
some 200 additional black workers
claiming they were rejected for jobs
at the local mill because of their race,
the total claims settlement comes to
approximately $2 million.
U.S. District Judge Maurice Paul
approved the settlement last week
after earlier citing "overwhelming"
evidence of St. Joe's "pervasive"
discrimination.
Some 200 workers will each
receive an average of $15,000 for
alleged claims of promotion and
assignment discrimination and those
who claimed they were not hired
because of their race will share some
$198,000.
Attorney fees and other costs will
cost St. Joe an estimated additional $1
to $1.5 million.
In addition to the levy against St.
Joe Paper, Local 379, United Paper
workers Union will be forced to pay
$35,000 as part of the award. The final
ruling charged the union participated
with St. Joe Paper in the discrimina-
tion by helping devise: the job classes
within which workers progressed
their careers, the workers charged.
In addition to the cash award, the
local paper manufacturer must hire
blacks for 40 percent of its hourly
vacancies until at least 23 percent of
its employees are black.
These present and former work-
ers will share approximately $1.8
million, as a result of the settlement.
The plaintiffs charged in their
complaint that St. Joe maintained
separate job classes for whites and
blacks from the mid-1970s to the
mid-1980s, It was also charged that
black employees were transferred
only to other all-black jobs.
U.S..District Judge William Staf-
ford, who first presided over the case
before giving way to Judge Paul wrote
in his order that "Black workers at St.
Joe Paper Company have historically
been shunted into dead-end jobs or
segregated lines of progression, con-
sisting generally of the dirtiest, most
dangerous and lowest-paying jobs in

In short, the plan must contain
all proposed capital improvements
in any given area such as roads,
water, sewer, parks, etc., and their
level of service must belidentified,
spelling out just how much public
demand is expected to be absorbed
by the development. If future plans
are not included in the comprehen-
sive plan document, the activity
cannot be pursued until the plan is
changed. All changes must be filed
with and approved by the state.
The kicker in the whole law is
that only items set forth in the plan
,are eligible for state funds. In other
words, a proposed new road in a
certain location would receive no
state funds for building or maintain-
ing, unless it is identified in the
comprehensive plan.

Keogh Plan May be Best for You

Last week I discussed the benefits
of the Individual Retirement Account.
This week I will discuss a retirement
plan for the self-employed known as a
Keogh plan. You 'do not have to be
self-employed full-time, to be eligible

a business in the evenings and

plan over an IRA as a retirement
vehicle. With a Keogh plan there are
more tax advantaged options avail-
able when you reach retirement and
start to withdraw the retirement
funds. Also, you may be able to set
aside much more for retirement and
thus-a greater deduction now. How-
ever, there are also disadvantages. A
Keogh plan is a plan that must be


Ministered. If


you nave employees, you may also
have to make contributions to the plan
on their behalf.
Having a Keogh plan does not
preclude you from also having an
IRA. Planning for retirement now can
secure your later years while mini-
mizing your taxes now. Tax savings
now, of course, means more available

ordinance, so the vote would not be

Chairman Doug Birmingham not-
ed that in his opinion, the Commission
couldn't wait until September to reach
a decision in the matter. "I would hate
to promise a referendum on the
matter in September and find we had
to move in May or June in the
matter". Birmingham still wanted to
explore the possibility of trying to
come up with some possibility of road
funding other than raising taxes,
"But, frankly, I'm at a loss to say
what that method might be".
"I just want to look.for additional
money some more before we cut off
any possibilities (of raising it some
other way)", the chairman said.
Money pointed out that with the
additional gasoline tax, the county has
until June 1 of each year to file for
state matching money to supplement
the extra money derived from the
extra gasoline tax.
Chairman Birmingham has
pointed out in recent meetings, the
county has several roads and streets
which are in such bad shape, "We
might lose them if we put off making
repairs much longer". By using the
term "lose", Birmingham was refer-
ring to the present paving getting in
such bad shape the county would have
to start from scratch in repaving
certain roads, rather than just re-cap
them.
OTHER BUSINESS
In other business matters to come
before the Commission, the board:
-Agreed to get involved in trying
to make changes in a recent law which


restricts taking oysters for 'only four
days a week, up to four p.m. in the
afternoon. The regulations also re-
quire taking the oysters to 13 Mile or
Apalachicola to be inspected. The
relief was requested by recreational
oyster harvesters, who pick up an
occasional bag or bucket for their own
use.
-Agteed to intervene in a pro-
posed shrimping rule which would
prohibit shrimping within three miles
of the Franklin or Gulf county shores
between sundown and sunrise during
the period from September 1 to
November 30 of each year. The rules
change would also prohibit shrimping
during the months of May and June.
-Officially named attorney Wil-
liam J. Rish the attorney of record for
the county to answer a suit filed
against Gulf County in the matter of
what Springfield considers an unfair
rate of compensation for 'accepting
Gulf county garbage at Bay's inciner-
ator. Springfield pays $22.00 a ton and
Gulf pays $15.00. Gulf county paid Bay
county some $8,800 during January to
accept solid waste from south Gulf
county at the incinerator.
-Accepted a plat for Sea Shores
subdivision presented by Charles
Parker and Cecil G. Costin, Jr. The
plat met all county requirements
except in one area. A few lots met the
subdivision requirements as to square
footage, but didn't meet the configur-
ation requirements. The plat was
approved contingent on the granting
of a variance which would allow the
irregular shaped lots to be included as
drawn.

Fund for I
All Florida children who need
life-saving organ transplants now
have access to a fund raising program
administered by the state.
Governor Bob Martinez an-
nounced on January 29 that the new
Transplant Lifeline for Children
(TLC) fund will seek private tax
deductible contributions and will be
managed by the Department of
Health and Rehabilitative Services
(HRS).,
Officials said almost $5,000 in
donations were receive in the first few
days after the governor's an-
nouncement.
The TLC fund will expand servi-
ces currently provided through HRS'
Children's Medical Services (CMS)
Transplantation Program.
"We believe that this kind of
program is the ultimate answer,"
Martinez said as he handed his $500
contribution to HRS Secretary Gre-
gory L. Coler.
"What we hope to do. .is 'to
provide a comprehensive, financially
sound system of health care for all of
Florida's children who require organ
transplantation to sustain life," Mar-
tinez said.
Martinez and Coler said the TLC
fund will reassure members of the
public who are concerned' that their
donations might be misused.
The TLC funds will assist the
children and families who. don't
qualify for other government funded
programs due to income, insurance or
other resources. Such resources will
be taken into consideration before the
TLC funds are expended.
"The Governor's TLC fund will
mean that all Florida families will get

"Those children who are already
receiving state and federal transplan-
tation dollars will not lose their
eligibility if they accept TLC fund
dollars."
Each year about 30 Florida
children need organ transplants at a
cost of about !200,000 each, according
to Dr. Bill Ausbon, head of Children's
Medical Services.
CMS maintains a quality system
of care to meet the needs of
financially eligible children requiring
non-experimental organ transplants.
Services will be provided primarily
in-state. Out-of-state transplantations
may be approved by the CMS state
director when recommended by a
center physician.


The Governor's TLC fund ex-
pands non-experimental transplanta-
tion services to include all children
under age 21 who are legal residents
of Florida regardless of income.
Governor Martinez said fund-rais-
ers will be held regularly throughout
the state, starting in Tallahassee this
month.
Contributors can make donations
to support a specific child or any
child. Residual donations made on
behalf of specific children will be used
for other children in need of organ
transplants.
Tax deductible contributions can
be mailed to: Governor's TLC Pro-

Sex Revolution


Stirs Confusion


The so-called sexual revolution
has caused great confusion in our
society. Different factions are ap-
proaching sexual morality from oppo-
site perspectives, and from different
value systems. Some of the more
liberal among us say that the ne'
morality has freed us from behavior
restrictions that are no longer appro-
priate to an enlightened society. While
the traditionalists are proclaiming
that the new morality is simply the old
immorality.
Conflicting voices, crying to be
heard, have drowned out the tradi-
tional teachings of the church in such
matters. This new sexual liberation
has such an appeal that many
churchmen and churchwomen have
forgotten what our ancient Christian


TOWARD

value system has to say about sexual
behavior. These two factors have
brought us to a point where a whole
generation is now suffering the
consequences of indiscriminant social
morals.
The compliance of confused
Christians to the world's standards is
best illustrated by the modern prac-
tice of winking at the promiscuity and
homosexuality of our children. It is
also exemplified by the sexual behav-
ior of parents who think nothing of
viewing, and permitting children to
view, sexually explicit entertainment.
Much could also be said about the
level of adult promiscuity which,
pollsters tell us, is rampant about-
those who profess the Christian faith.
It is hard for the church to tell young

people that, for the sake of their
mental and physical health, and for
the preservation of the family as a
social unit, they should delay sexual
gratification when their role models
are demonstrating an entirely differ-
ent lifestyle.
We Christians do not have the
right to condemn anyone for having
private beliefs, yet we do have the
right to express our own teachings.
So, in these few lines I will list some of
the doctrines that have served believ-
ers so well in former generations, with
the hope that they will reinforce the
higher values that help to make our
lives better.
Any time human behavior is being
considered, we should remember that
God has revealed himself as being
both loving in response to our
obedience, and judgmental in re-
sponse to our rebellion. At the same
time we must confess that perfection
is beyond our mortal reach. In fact,
none of our relationships are free of
sin. We will not be able to live up to
perfect standards, but we are able to
live toward them. We can also expect


God's judgment to be tempered with
forgiveness and restoration when we
truly repent of our wayward behavior.
Christian experience has taught
us that we can best approach God's
standard for sexual morality in the
union of male and female in marriage.
In the highest form, these marriages
are lifelong, faithful and monogam-
ous. Sexual abstinence outside of
marriage and faithfulness within
marriage are the foundation stones of
moral responsibility.
Homosexual, or same gender
sexual unions, though always present
in every society, are ultimately
unfulfilling. In spite of arguments to
the contrary, they have often proven
to be channels for mental, spiritual
and physical health problems. There-
fore the church has traditionally
rejected them.
The two paragraphs above can
easily be supported by a large mass of
biblical texts. And we should recall
that the traditions and the life of the
church over the centuries have born
out the value of these moral princi-
ples. When we faithfully observe them
we are helping to insure the present
well-being, and the future hope of our
race.
Based on these precepts, Christ-
ians have generally tried to live
virtuous lives. But, we have never
managed to behave ourselves for
long. Practically every adult has had


to struggle with the problems and
blessings that are inherent to human
sexuality. Most of us have not
consistently lived up to our highest
standards. The sad fact is, virtually
all of us have failed miserably.
An old axium states that the sex
act takes less time and causes more
trouble than any other human pas-
time. This may be true.
That is where God's grace comes
in. After every failure, we may. be
forgiven. That fact does not give us
license to live as our lusts dictate. We
need to persist in our efforts to live our
lives in obedience to God's will. We


dare not think that God's love is going
to cover up for our insincerity. We
must approach God in sorrow for our
misdoings and seek forgiveness with
good intentions. Then, with God's
love, and by his grace, we really can
live toward his perfect standards for
sexual morality. True satisfaction,
gratification, and peace are waiting
for all who honestly seek after God's
standards.
These teachings are time-tested.
Collective experience has shown their
practicality. And personal experience
demonstrates their blessings. May
God grant us all strength to live
according to his will.

CARD of THANKS
The Raffields would like to extend
a sincere thank you for a difficult iob
well done to the Highland View, Port
St. Joe, White City and Tyndall Fire
departments. Last Firday night on a
cold, snowy, blustery night these men
responded as they always do unsel-


or gas operated guns, unless such use
is under the supervision and in the
presence of an adult of 18 years of age
or older. It is also prohibited under
Florida Statute 790.15 to use such
weapons in public or in a residential
area.
The Sheriff's Department urges
parents to use caution and care with
responsibility to their children when
in the possession of any firearm.


Over the last several weeks the
Gulf County Sheriff's Department has
received several complaints regard-
ing juveniles carrying or shooting BB
guns, air or gas operated guns. These
complaints usually initiate when.
windows are shot.
According to the Florida Statute
790.22, it is prohibited for any child
under the age of 16 years to use for
any purpose whatsoever BB guns, air


fishly, into a crisis. These volunteers
are proof that the good neighbor
pioneering spirit still prevails in our
great nation. We hope the community
at large appreciates these heroes as
much as we do.
Thank you,
Gene Raffield

Went to the Mosquito Control Depart-
ment and the sign looked like it, had
been run over by a bulldozer. He
stated the sign may have been on
County right of way, however, he was
not notified and given a 'chance to
remove it. Roche then presented an
invoice for reimbursement of cost of
the sign, stating if the County doesn't
have an ordinance or policy on this, it
needs one. The Chairman apologized
that this sign was removed. The
Board's employees thought this was
the Board's direction to remove signs
from county right of way on a routine
basis; however, th eBoard has
discontinued removing signs and is
preparing an ordinance .concerning
same. The Chairman stated he would
check into this case further as he had
been told all people whose signs were
removed were notified. Peters moved
the Board approve payment of the
invoice. Money seconded the motion.
Branch stated this is a legitimate
request; however, he received a call
concerning a large commercial sign
that had been rembved from county
right of way and if the Board
approved reimbursement of Roche's
sign, it would receive a lot of other
requests which would be a great
expense to the county. The Board
discussed the road department re-
moved the signs at 'the building
inspectors direction. Roche withdrew
his invoice. Peters stated since Roche
withdrew his invoice, he would
withdraw his motion; however, he felt
it only right that he be paid. Money
withdrew his second.
Upon presentation by the Clerk,
Traylor moved the Board approve
payment of an invoice from Basker-
ville-Donovan, Engineers, for plan-
ning services for Gulf County Local

tion. The Administrative Assistant
requested he hold this invoice as 40
percent of $25,000 funding not re-
ceived. The Board agreed. Traylor
withdrew his motion and Branch
withdrew his second.

Money, and unanimous vote, the

cerning signs on County right of way.

passed unanimously.
The Mosquito Control Director
reported Gulf County paid Bay County
$11,252.70 in November for use of the
incinerator. Peters discussed this
amount exceeds the estimated
amount of $7,500 per month and if the
amount of garbage transferred to the
'Bay County incinerator continues in
this quantity, Gulf County won't have
enough money budgeted to cover this
expenditure. The Chairman directed
the Mosqulto Control Director keep
the Board informed. The Director
stated he would submit a report each
month. Peters stated he was disgusted
with the Board being behind in the use
of scales at the landfill.
Money requested the Board write

Senator Dempsey Barron on behalf of
