Robbed While Making Bank Deposit


A service station attendant had her night deposit bag
stolen by a strong arm robber Friday night of last week,
according to Police Chief Carl Richter. The robbery was
the first strong-arm robbery in Port St. Joe since the
"Friday Night Robber" of two years ago, hit three
places before he was caught.
Chief Richter said Mrs. Mary Fowler, who is cashier
at the Shell Service Station was making a deposit of
some $825.00 in cash at the Wewahitchka State Bank
night depository facility about 10:30 p.m., Friday when
the robbery occurred.
Mrs. Fowler said as she was getting out of her
Spick-up truck to place the envelope into the depository, a
dark colored sedan whipped in behind her vehicle and a
black male came up to her, threatening her with.a knife.
The man is reported to have said, "Give me the money.
bag".
Mrs. Fowler said she followed his instructions. After


he had the bag, the man is said to have jumped into the
passenger side of the auto and it took off at a fast rate of
speed, driving south on Woodward Avenue.
Mrs. Fowler said she then went back to the Shell
Station and called the Police Department.
Chief Richter said his department has a few leads in .
the case, but no suspects as yet. "We found the money
bag lying in the middle of the Saveway Center parking
lot Tuesday morning, but there is no indication as to how,
long it had been there", Richter said.
Richter said the Police Department usually
furnished an escort for persons making night deposits,
"If they call us and tell us they are ready to go". Mrs..
Fowler didn't call for the service and Richter said this is
a usual thing. "You don't think about getting robbed in
Port St. Joe, so the people get careless and just ind it too
much trouble to call us and wait for an Officer to
respond".


Construction of a facility designed
to rehabilitate youthful offenders was
kick-started here Tuesday, when state
Department of Corrections officials
came to Port St. Joe to officially
innaugurate the camp project.
Richard L. Duggar, secretary of
the DOC officially accepted the deed
for a parcel of land lying near Cypress
Creek on the Howard Creek Road, on
which the camp will be located.
County Commission Chairman Doug
Birmingham presented the deed to
Dugger in a short ceremony held on
the rear patio at the Courthouse just
after lunch Tuesday.
In his acceptance address, Dug-
gar praised county officials for their
faith in the project, committing their
money to furnish the property and
t. pledged the commitment would reap
desired, returns for the county.
The secretary said the camp
would have an annual payroll of some
S$1.5 million with good prospects for
this amount to increase in the future.
"This facility will provide permanent
jobs for the county", the speaker said.
Estimates are the camp will furnish
employment for 50 to 60 people.
The DOC secretary said the camp
would also have a sizeable impact on
the supply and services businesses in
the county. "We'll need a consider-
Sable amount of supplies and services
in our operation and we plan to make
these purchases right here in the
i county qs much as possible", he said:
Dugger said it was the intention of
the DOC to be "a good neighbor" in
Gulf county and cooperate with the
people who live here.


REP. TRAMMELL RESPONSIBLE
Rep. Robert Trammell, represen-
tative to the Florida Legislature, who
represents Gulf county, pointed out
that the Gulf county facility is a new
concept in dealing with youthful
offenders who are in trouble for the
first time, or who aren't hardened
criminals. The Representative has
been instrumental in introducing this
type incarceration to the state of
Florida, and put Gulf county's name
in the hat to be one of the locations for
a camp when it was finally decided
upon.
'"When they asked if Gulf county
would accept such an installation, I
told them all they had to do was
propose it and they would know
almost immediately if the people
would approve it or not".
Trammell had good words to say
for the new concept of dealing with
offenders in this nature. "It is costing
us about half of what it does to furnish
a bed for a maximum security prison
setting. It will rehabilitate first
offenders using the work ethic and it
will help the community with its


services", Trammell said.
Both Trammell and Dugger
pointed out that the clients at the
camp will primarily be working with
and for the Forestry Service, but they
would also be available for projects
in the county and communities to do
jobs which might not otherwise get
done from lack of local funds or labor.
PROVIDES LAND
Commission Chairman Doug Bir-
mingham expressed the county's
gratitude to St. Joe Paper Company
for making the arrangements to
provide the property on which to
locate the camp. "They have been as
helpful and cooperative as a person
could possibly be", he said.
Birmingham also gave credit to
Rep. Trammell and Senator Dempsey
Barron for their part in securing the
facility for the county.
Senator Barron sponsored appro-
val of the Gulf County installation
through the Florida Senate for
approval.
Bids have been let on the camp
and construction work is scheduled to
begin in just a matter of days.

only 30 percent of the county's
7,433 registered electors went to the

If the Gulf County vote alone

Albert Gore won the Democrats'
favor, polling 579 ballots in his
column.
Jesse Jackson had a narrow lead
for second place in the Democratic

close behind. Jackson polled 449 votes

a distant fourth with 304 ballots cast in
his favor.

county ever since the state got out of
the secondary road program several
years ago. Now, the problem is
catching up with the county in major
proportions.
Recently, the Board made a
decision to spend what paving money
it had (through its regular budget) on
resurfacing nine miles of the Dalkeith
Road from its north end to the Lister
Landing area. At that time, Commis-
sioner Billy Branch argued for
spending a part of the estimated
$350,000 on hand on county road C-30,
but lost out in the final voting.
Money revived the need for
re-surfacing this road Tuesday, stat-
ing it was in terrible and dangerous
condition, especially for vehicles
pulling a boat or camper trailer.
"When those things bounce, you are in
trouble", Money said.
The Commissioner said it was his
firm conviction road work in the
county should be paid for with
gasoline taxes, letting the ones using
the roads pay for them. "We're one of
a very' few counties which hasn't
already adopted this tax", he pointed
out, adding that the state would match
the receipts with 80 percent contribu-
tions from state sources.
County Clerk Bennie Lister said
reports lie had were that the gasoline
tax would generate approximately
$57,000 a year for each cent in tax
levied.
Chairman Birmingham observed
Money's plan would collect some
$350,000 a year for road work, plus the
matching money from the state.
"The only question I have is does
the 80 percent match go on every year
or is it a one-time thing?" the
Chairman asked.
Nobody knew the answer to
Birmingham's question or many other
questions which were raised during
the discussion.
Commissioner Billy Branch, who
has advocated the five cent gas tax for
some time now, and who seconded
Money's motion to have it discussed,
withdrew his second, killing the
motion and offered a suggestion of his
own.
"I highly favor Mr. Money's

We Had Our Say On



Super Tuesday

Super Tuesday, 1988 is now history and we start the long
process of gearing up for the big election in November, when
the sifting out process of Super Tuesday will allow the final
ingredient to trickle out of the gaggle of candidates which
started this marathon about this time last year.
We think we are average and if we are, we predict Florida
will once again vote for a Republican president when the final
show-down comes. It isn't that the Republican way is the
Florida way so much as it's just that the Democrats have
nobody running who really tickles your fancy or is
overwhelmingly convincing of his abilities to head up this
nation as its president.
Personally, the man we would have most liked to see win
the final ballot dropped out of the race. We would have voted for
Pierre duPont if he had made the final cut.
Actually, the man we most liked never did get into the race.
We were hoping Sam Nunn would declare himself and be the
Democratic candidate. We would have voted for Sam Nunn.
As it is, we are in a quandry over which candidate will
receive our vote in November. As we said, none of the
Democrats particularly appeal to us as a president. In the
Republican camp, we could vote for Dole, Bush or Kemp.
Either man, we think, would make this nation a fine president
and a leader who would look out for the good of the nation.
Dole might be more inclined to think "Republican" in his
presidential decisions than the others. We feel we need a
president who thinks of political party dead last. There are
many more pressing and important decisions for a president to
make and considerations more important than which political
party is the originator of a particular program, proposal or
piece of legislation.
As we said, as things now stand, we will probably vote for
the Republican candidate, if he happens to be one of these three
men. That's just our convictions on the matter.
But, don't make your decision on that pronouncement. We
voted for Claude Kirk for Governor in the '60's too! Which
proves we're no expert when it comes to picking politicians.



Missing Two Years
We don't want to sound unappreciative here and actually
we are not. But: hasn't our Highland View high-rise bridge still
been delayed from its original schedule? A schedule we all said
was unrealistic when the actual needs were considered. Didn't
.we allRlt.the bridge should be in top priority in.our county,.,, .
-and still feel that way? Weren't we all just a little. disgruntled.
that the bridge construction wasn't going to get underway until
the 1889-90 fiscal year? Didn't we argue that it should begin this
year or last year?
It seems to us this was the case before the bridge was
totally removed from the Florida Department of Transporta-
tion five year building plan about a month ago. We were all
waiting patiently for the project to get off the ground beginning
next July.
We're appreciative that the project has made it back into
the current five year program, but we're still a little
disappointed that the construction program won't actually get
underway until 1990. That's two years into the future.
We understand that money doesn't grow on trees and there
are probably a hundred other places in the State of Florida
which is just as demanding as we are and who have influential
people trying to persuade government officials to do their
projects immediately, too. There are wheels squeaking all over
this state, asking for a little grease to quieten them with.
Maybe the DOT can continue to monitor their funds into the
future and will be able to find a few dollars not claimed by
somebody else as they did last week. If they do, we'll surely
appreciate it if the Highland View project is reinstated to its
original position in the priorities ... or even moved up to this
year!


Hunker Down with Kes



Ticket No. 96751...


Boy, I was tempted to lie. I didn't
know what to say. So I just sat there
like I didn't hear the question. "You
ever been to a drive in movie before?"
asked Bobby Jack-loud enough this
time that they all know I'd heard.
They had just picked me up and I
didn't want to be un-cool, but shucks!
I'd never been to a drive-in before. I
wanted to say "Hey man, I go all the
time, nothing to it," but Ricky and
Yogi were going and they knew I'd
.never been to a drive in picture show.
I kind'a lowered my head, "Au-er-aw-
no."
Of course as we turned off the
highway and down the gravel road
leading to the ticket place I had one
consolation. I knew Ricky and Yogi
had never been to one of these things
either. Now Bobby Jack was three or
four years older than us and he had a
driver's license--or I think he was old
enough to drive. He had his father's
'58 Buick so I figured he either had a
license or moreguts than anyone I'd
ever seen. He knew all about going to
the drive-in. He didn't even appear to
be nervous when we paid. Listen my
hand was trembling as I passed my
quarter to the front. I didn't dare
breathe until we had eased on through
the gate and turned down behind the

THEY TELL ME that one of the
signs of getting old is that one
develops little idiosyncrasies or habits
which to break would practically
mean the end of the world.
We're not talking about youi"
small habits such as whistling while
you work, always shaking hands with
your right hand or wiping off the top of
a cold drink bottle with your hand.
We're talking real serious stuff here.
When you begin to "get along in
years" it's my information that a
person begins to develop small quirks
which might seem odd or annoying to
others, but which are perfectly
sensible to the person so afflicted.
You can take this test and see if
you are free of these little indulgences
or if you are on the way to being a


advancing AA
member of the Geritol group.
+++++
IF YOU REFUSE to take the top
newspaper from a newsstand, you are
beginning to develop those tendencies
which are a dead give-away to
becoming old.
I do this, but it isn't because I'm
getting old, you understand.
There is a perfectly normal
reason why I never take the top
newspaper out of a newsstand when I
buy a paper from one.
Being in the business, I know this
ink rubs off on your hands when you
handle newspapers, and I don't want
to get a newspaper with smudges on it
Where the routeman has left his mark
on the two outside papers in the stack.
You see, I told you the explanation
would be reasonable.
+++++
INSISTING ON A certain side of
the bed is also one of those small
quirks we develop as we begin to

mellow in years.
My side of the bed is for me and
me alone, but it's not because I have
developed one of those quirks which
gives evidence I am becoming an old
man.
I sleep on the same side of the bed
because that's the side where I lay my
glasses and my watch every night.
Also, it's the side which contains my
two-year stack of Reader's Digests
(where these common habits came
from) where I can read them every
night after I go to bed.
The side of the bed which I call
mine is also the side where my shoes'
are parked each night and, as
Frenchie says, the side of the
mattress I have wallowed out.
Actually I sleep on the side of the
bed Frenchie didn't want to sleep on.
+++++
MAKE SURE THE smallest
denominations of bills are on the
outside.


Now, I know my reason for doing
this isn't brought on by the onset of
habits spawned by growing old age.
I put the smallest denominations
on both the inside and the outside ...
and the inside. They're all ones. Got
you there!
+++++
S WAIT FOR THE telephone to ring
at least twice before answering.
Another little rule I have and a
perfectly good and reasonable ex-
planation for it. When the telephone
rings at our house, it is seldom for me.
Usually, it is ringing for Frenchie or
one of the grandchildren, or the
neighbors, but seldom for me.
SQ, why should I break my neck to
answer it? If it rings for three times, I
start toward the phone. Sometimes I
make it. Sometimes someone else
picks the phone up first and some
times the. person calling hangs up
before I get there.
It wasn't for me, anyhow.


Here at the office is another
matter. Every organization should
have a phone answerer if they are any
organization at all. Answering the
phone isn't in my job description.
There you have another good
reason for small quirks. No sign of
growing old, yet.
FOLLOW STRICT RULES about
squeezing toothpaste. That one does-
n't even deserve an explanation.
Everyone knows you should squeeze
toothpaste from the bottom of the tube
.. at the risk of getting told off.
+++++
WEIGH YOURSELF only first
thing in the morning, stark naked.
That one's easy too. If you can
still stand on a bathroom scale
without any clothes on and not throw
up, you're not as old as you thought
you were. When you just must leave
on your PJ's or your robe, you're on
the way.


Most of us fellows know we aren't
overweight anyhow, so we just don't
weigh! No odd-ball behaviour there.
+++++
NOW HERE'S A good one! Keep
your watch five minutes fast so you're
never late.
This is the real test around our
house. There is a clock on the
bedroom dresser which is 23 minutes
fast. The clock on the range is still
running on standard time so it won't
have to be changed twice a year. The
clock on the mantle reads 15 minutes
early, unless it fails to get wound
every eight days. The electric clock
in the "back bedroom was two hours
and 40 minutes off. Seems nobody set
it after the past electricity failure or
two.
My watch? Right on the money.
I'm just late because I have 'slowed
down so much I can't rush anymore.
It's not caused by old age, you
understand.

PHANTRY

Some Thoughts On Preachers
A NUMBER OF preachers have made the news lately, several of
them in a big way. This article is not about any of those preachers.
I have some strong opinions about some of them and their actions
that I cannot express here. Besides that, who am I to judge them?
In view of some of the news events concerning ministers during the
last year or so, I thought it would be nice to mention some of our local
clergy and point out some positive points and contributions they have
made to our community and mankind.
+++++
-The minister at the Methodist Church, where my. family and I
attend, is Reverend Ennis Sellers. Reverend Sellers is an imposing man,
both spiritually and physically. He is not only a fine pastor but he is also a
wonderful person. For years I thought the Jews were God's chosen
people. Reverend Sellers has convinced me that Methodist ministers now
hold that distinction.
-Reverends Dan Duncan and Howard Browning hold the reins on the
Baptist congregations in town. Baptists, unlike some other denomin-
ations, don't believe in celebrating or having fun by drinking, dancing or
gambling. These two preachers have made tremendous strides since
coming to our town; Shad has stopped dancing and gambling two nights a
week in their honor.
-Father Thom Crandall leads the Catholics in our town. I don't know
much about the Catholic faith except they are dedicated people and their
church services don't last nearly as long as ours. I have a few friends who
are Catholic and I'm not ashamed to admit it. Most of them were
probably raised that way.
-Reverend Dave Fernandez pastors the Assembly of God Church
and is a fine man. Brother Dave has a very commanding voice, as you
know if you've ever heard him say grace. I've never attended one of his
services, but I would imagine that if he couldn't preach or pray it out of
you, he could certainly scare it out of you.
-Father Jerry Huft is the Episcopal minister for Port St. Joe and
Wewahitchka. Father Huft, like myself, writes a column for the paper
each week. We don't write about the same things, however. His columns
are slanted toward the more positive, spiritual side of life. They are also
very well written.
There is a side to Father Huft that you may not be aware of. I wasn't
until just last Saturday. Jerry Huft has a little "Southern Philosophy" in
him. Let me explain.
+++++
LAST SATURDAY MORNING Father Huft and I chanced to meet for
breakfast. As we were leaving we stopped to chat a while on the sidewalk.
In a few minutes a car passed pulling a small trailer loaded with boards.
"Would you look at that!" Jerry exclaimed, pointing to the trailer, "that
man has done a very foolish thing."
"What did he do?", I inquired.
"Why, he's taken a perfectly good fishing boat trailer and converted
it into a work trailer! Some people just don't use good judgment when it
comes to priorities."
"I guess you're right," I agreed, seeing he was upset.
"Another thing I can't understand," he continued, now on a roll, "is
someone who will steal tools. Anyone who will steal something to work
with has to be desperate."
That was two keen observations, in my opinion, and proof positive
that God gives more insight to some than to others.

to the concession stand for some

be careful walking in front of
someone's car-they'd blow the horn
and holler like the dickens. The plan
on the way back was to kind'a walk
nonchalantly around the car beside us
and count the folks inside. Well it

couldn't see inside. I don't know how

motion", Branch said, "but I would
like to get the official support of both
cities in the county and sit down and
draw up a plan and procedure for
spending this money before we levy
any tax. I would like to see as much
input from all areas of the county, so
far as needs are concerned, as
possible".
The City.of Port St. Joe has
already petitioned the county to adopt
a five cent gas tax for road building
purposes.
The only dissenting voice for
Money's revenue-raising plan Tues-
day was Commissioner Nathan Pet-
ers. Peters said he agreed with the
plan, but thought it should be decided
by the voters in a referendum, rather
than 'by the Commission on a vote.
Money defended his position by
telling Peters they were elected to
make such decisions and they should


get down to business and make the
decision. "We don't place the ad
valorem tax budget to a vote of the
people and we shouldn't be expected
to do so with this matter".
Chairman Birmingham suggested
the Board follow Branch's advice and
begin contacts with the two city
governments in the county about the
matter. "I suggest we hold a public
meeting or two to discuss the matter",
Birmingham said. The Board agreed
to the course of action.
OTHER BUSINESS
In other business matters, the
Commission:
-Passed resolution requesting
the State of Florida to reject a request
from the U.S. Corps of Engineers that
the state sponsor a 25 year dredging
program for the Apalachicola River.
Sponsorship would make the state
liable for securing spoil property and


accepting liability for the mainten-
ance program. The county had
previously denied a similar request
from the Corps, taking the stance that
Florida gets very little benefit from
the shipping lane on the river and the
Corps should bear all its own expenses
as it does in Alabama and Georgia.
-Agreed to meet with HRS
concerning plans to reduce the office
force and services in the old Court-
house building in Wewahitchka.
Chairman Birmingham wanted to
keep the services just as they
presently are in the county.
-Heard a presentation from
Marion Hough concerning awareness
to the disease AIDS who challenged
the Commission with the question,
"Are you guys going to do some-
thing?" She presented the Board with
a video tape made of a recent seminar
on the subject held in Gulf County.

Super
(Continued from Page 1)
10 years ago, there were fewer than
100 on Gulf's voting rolls.
Despite their growing numbers,
the party faithful showed no more
loyalty than did the Democrats,
polling only 138 ballots.
Their main choice on Super
Tuesday, was vice president George
Bush. The Vice President can add
Gulf County to his sweep of the states
involved in "Super Tuesday".
Bush polled 57 votes.
Coming in with a respectable
second place showing, was former
evangelist, Pat Robertson, who rack-
ed up 43 votes in his favor.
The other Republican hopefuls
didn't even find much hope here in
Gulf county. Bob Dole counted 19
votes, Jack Kemp 18, Al Haig, Jr., one
and Pete duPont didn't get a one.

GFWFC Enforcing New


Limits on SI


The Game and Fresh Water Fish
Commission began enforcing a new
bag limit in Florida for white, striped
and. sunshine bass on March 1.
Under the new state law, fisher-
men will be allowed a daily aggregate
bag limit of 20 white, striped and
sunshine bass of which no more than
six may be more than 24 inches in
total length (tip of snout to the back of
the tail when it is squeezed together).
Previously, fishermen were al-
lowed separate bag limits of 30 white
bass, 10 sunshine bass and six striped
bass.
According to Bob Wattendorf,
assistant director of the Commission's
Division of Fisheries, "Since, within
Florida,white bass are common only
in Lake Talquin and the Apalachicola
River, the new bag limit is a slight
liberalization of prior regulations."
Changes in;the law resulted from
ian agreement among the Commis-
sion, Marine Fisheries Commission
(MFC) and Department of Natural
Resources (DNR). Officials of the
three state agencies agreed that
Florida populations of striped bass
are, by their nature, freshwater
species and are maintained by the
Commission's stocking program.
Based on these facts the MFC
relinquished jurisdiction of the spe-
cies to the Commission with the
approval of the governor and cabinet.
"This new regulation eliminates
separate bag limits and established a

bass regulation," Wattendorf said.


This will reduce confusion which
previously existed due to similarity of
appearance among these three spe-
cies, and it will make compliance
simpler for the angler, Wattendorf
explained.
All sunshine bass and most
striped bass caught in Florida are
reared at Commission hatcheries.
"This will allow more of the fish to
be used before-they die. Older striped
bass are vulnerable to handling and
warm water temperatures," Watten-
dorf said. "As a result, catch-and-re-
lease is less successful with striped
bass than with largemouth bass."


The residents of Gulf County are
going to have a fun filled day on May 7
at the seafood festival. This years
entertainment and activities has
already been confirmed as listed
below:
The Lions Club of Port St. Joe and
the Kiwanis Club have again joined
forces to make this a day to
remember. The Lions Club will be
sponsoring a mini health fair with a
free glaucoma testing lab available
from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. EST.
The Lions Club is also conducting a
fun run and walk event. The registra-

U. of Fla. Establishes History

Source About Trade Unions


A Florida Labor History Network
has been established at the University
of Florida to stimulate labor history
.interest and coordinate information
sources in the state.
The network, organized by UF's
history department, will include
teachers, students, retirees, trade
unionists, and other Floridians inter-
ested in the history of working people,
unions, and related topics, said
history professor Robert Zieger, who
is spearheading efforts to draw people
into the network.

Teacher Classes
History and social studies teach-
ers interested in learning more about
specific programs offered during the
summer months should contact the
new Summer Programs Information
Network.
The network, which is available to
teachers of all grade levels and serves
as a clearinghouse for information on
summer institutes,, workshops and
other programs throughout Florida, is
offered through the History Teaching
Alliance at the University of Florida.
Specific information is available
on topics, dates, application-regis-
tration, credit hours, stipends and
Other details of each available pro-
gram. All university and college
'departments of history offering insti-
.tutes or workshops for teachers are
encouraged to submit flyers, bro-
chures, or other introductory mater-
ials so that information on their
programs may be dispursed and
referrals made to interested teachers.


Labor history is an important
topic in Florida because the state has
rich traditions of labor activism and
rich resources for the study of labor
history, Zieger said. For example,
thousands of retired workers from
across the country now live in Florida,
and many American unions hold their
annual meetings in Florida, he said.
Zieger currently is surveying
interested people in hopes of expand-
ing the network. He plans to issue a
periodic newsletter noting publica-
tions, sources and activities. Tenta-
tive long-range plans call for a
conference to create a permanent
structure and future annual network
meetings.
Those interested in joining the
network or obtaining more inform-
ation on it should contact Zieger by
phone at (904) 392-0271, or by writing
him in care of the Department of
History, 4131 Turlington Hall, Univer-
sity of Florida, Gainesville, FL 32611.


participation ribbon and a seafood
festival t shirt. A special drawing for
the fun run walk participants will.be
held at 9:30 a.m. on the grounds of the
Bay St. Joseph Care Center. Further
information may be obtained by

famous annual pancake breakfast will
be served on the festival grounds
adjacent to Long Ave. from 7:00 a.m.
until 10:00 a.m. All of Gulf County is
asked to support these worthwhile
efforts. The causes are just and this
community is a better place because
of these groups that are working to
help others wherever possible.
Arts and crafts booths, seafood of
all kinds including crawfish, fish
gumbo and fish dinners will be served
all day. Booths may be rented for
$25.00 to reserve one call 229-8244.
Carnival games and rides for kiddies

Some Stocks of
Commodity Items
Are Depleted

On February 12, 1988 the U.S.
Department of Agriculture announced
that the depletion of government
stockpile of cheese will prevent states
from distributing cheese and nonfat
dry milk through the Temporary
Emergency Food Assistance Pro-
gram in May. Rice and honey stocks
will be depleted in March.
Based on the current inventory
levels in state warehouses, honey, rice
and nonfat dry milk will be allocated
to EFO's through June 1988, and
cheese through .August 1988. Butter,
cornmeal and flour will continue to be

Sneads jumped out in front of the
Sharks, scoring a run in each of the

BAY BOUNCES SHARKS
Things turned around in an
unpleasant way for the Sharks,
Monday afternoon, when big Bay High
came to town. The Tornadoes blanked
the Sharks 12-0 behind the two hit
pitching of William Staayfer. Staayfer
had a no-hitter going until the fifth
inning, when Patrick Freeman and
Reginald Larry rapped singles.
Through the first two innings, it
appeared as if the Sharks would give
the Tornadoes all they wanted. Jim
SAnderson held the Tornadoes score-
less in his first pitching assignment of
the season, but Bay exploded for eight
runs in the third inning and added two
more in the fourth and fifth.
Port St. Joe used five pitchers to
try and shut down the Tornadoes, but
couldn't deal with mother nature. Lee
Keith followed Anderson to the
mound, followed by Matthew Taylor,
Bill Ramsey and Tyrone Hamilton,
who finally shut down the Bay county
group.
S Coaches Duane McFarland and
SRick Williams said, "We didn't like
Sthe roughing up, but this experience
8 should pay off as the season progres-
1ses."

Offer A Wide Variety


Start Your Garden from Seeds


by Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Agent
Besides costing less than trans-:
plants, a major advantage of starting
a home vegetable garden directly
from seeds is that you can choose
from a wider selection of varieties. A
garden center may have several
varieties of seeds for a given crop, but
only one or two varieties of trans-
plants. Also, some crops such as
beans, corn, cucumbers and turnips
don't transplant very well. It's best to
start these from seeds. On the other.
hand, many crops do transplant well,
They include things like tomatoes,
broccoli, collards and lettuce. If
transplants are available for such
crops, they're probably a better bet-
than starting from seeds unless you're'
planning a very large garden.
While most vegetables can be

Girl Scouts
Are Active In
Community
Girl Scouts are providing the
international girls' program to some
80 to 90 girls in Gulf County,
Apalachee Bend Girl Scout executive,
Patsy Chivers told the Rotary Club
Thursday.
With its centennial coming up in
2012, Girl Scouts is already gearing up
its program for the future, according
to Mrs. Chiver, who told Rotarians of
some of the goals and activities of the
Girl Scouts, famous for their annual
cookie sale.
The cookie sale, of course, raises
funds to pay for the operation of Girl
Scouting throughout the Apalachee
Bend Council.
Currently, Mrs. Chivers said Girl
Scouts are studying the national
Constitution and are busy making
flags, reading the Constitution, and
studying the meaning of the docu-
ment. The Constitution study is a part
of the training goal of Girl Scouts to
build their character and make them
sensitive to their nation's background.
Brownie Scouts are correspond-
ing with other Brownies in New
Zealand as a part of their world
understanding activities and caring
for the shrubbery at the Gulf County
branch Library building as a part of
their concern for their local surround-
ings and their sense of responsibility.
In the enrichment portion :of
' training for both groups, they are
involved in crafts, games, camping
and taking part in Council activities.
As a part of the Council training
activities, two adult Girl Scout leaders
from Gulf County were sent to New
York City last month to take part
in the national leadership training
program. Attending the seminar from,
Gulf County were Mrs. Jan Richard-
son; a Girl Scout leader from Port St.
Joe and Mrs. Linda Tremairi, a leader
from Wewahitchka.
Mrs. Chivers showed the Rotar-
ians a short video on the history of
Girl Scouting and where it is headed in
the future.
Guests of the club were Dick
Mason, Carl Petteway and Fred
Richards of Apalachicola and Vance
Waggoner of Columbus, Georgia.

keep in mind when handling seeds.
Most of the seeds you'll find at garden
centers have been treated with
chemicals, to reduce injury and decay
caused by insects and diseases.
Usually, you can tell when seeds have
been treated because they are coated
with brightly colored dye. It's a good
idea to use treated seeds. In fact, you
should always use them when they're
available. But, remember that the
chemicals on such seeds are poison-
ous. So, treated seeds should never be
eaten by people or animals. They
should be handled with care, and be
kept out of reach of children and pets.
Finally, follow the planting direc-
tions on the seed packet.' If you plant
too deep, the young plants may not be
able to reach the soil surface after
sprouting. And, if you plant too
shallow, the seeds may be washed
away by rain.

Advantages to Operating Your

Business As Sole Propietorship


By: Wayne T. DeWitt, C.P.A.
One of the initial considerations
when starting a business is which
form to use. This week I will discuss
the sole proprietorship form of doing
business.
You are a sole proprietor if you
are self-employed and the sole owner
of an unincorporated business.
There are several advantages of
operating as a sole proprietor. For
example, the initial set-up is usually
not as complex and therefore does not
require as much accounting and legal
professional help to get started. The
reporting requirements are also much
simpler. For income tax purposes you
merely report the income and expen-
ses of the business on a single form
(schedule C).
As a sole proprietor you have to
pay a self-employment tax, this is
actually your social security taxes.
The rate for 1988 is 13.02 percent
:applied to a maximum net earning of
$45,000. The self-employment tax is
one of the disadvantages of operating
as sole proprietor. However, you can


reduce this tax by employing family
members. If you employ your wife,'it
will decrease your self-employment
taxes but not your income taxes. If
you employ your children, it decrea-
ses your self-employment taxes and
your income taxes. Your children will
not have to file a tax return so long as
each child earns -less than $2,540 per
year.
As a self-employed person ou
must pay your taxes in four p'.. ments
throughout the year. You have ,i
estimate your income tax liability and
your self-employment taxes to deter-
mine your total estimated taxes for
the year. These taxes are transmitted
with form 1040-ES and are due on
April 15, June 15, September 15, and
January 15 of the following year.
In summary, the sole proprietor is
generally easier to start up and is
simpler to account for its activity,
but, it does not offer the tax planning
opportunities as the other forms of
doing business.
Next week we will discuss the
partnership form of doing business.

Surival Test for Rural Hospitals


Each year rural hospitals by the
score are closing all over the United
States. People in small communities
and outlying counties are being forced
to seek medical care at greater
distances away from their home and
families. The vast majority of these
hospitals close because of economic
considerations and are not replaced
by other facilities. As these hospitals
pass.into history, so do local doctors
with all too great a frequency. Gulf
Pines Hospital has served Gulf County
for 45 years. Through many renov-
ations and upgrades it has kept pace
with modern development and medi-
cal care and maintained many, much
needed community health services. It.
too. fights the same economic woes


responsible for closing so many health
care facilities.
Often the test of survival for rural
hospitals comes down to the amount of
community solidarity and support for
the continuation of rural health care.
Those communities that possess the
strength of will and the concern for
their families, friends and neighbors
will always find a way to ensure the
maintenance of their hospitals. On the
other hand, those who simply take the
availability of health care for granted
will certainly ensure the demise of
rural medicine.
With strong community support,
Gulf Pines Hospital will continue to
add more available services as well as
maintain high quality medical care.


Cards of Thanks .


Dr. and Mrs. Jorge San Pedro and
family wish to express their deepest
gratitude to their many friends for all
the expressions of sympathy during
the recent death of his sister.

The family of James Edgar
Strange, who passed away March 5,
wishes to thank everyone for their
prayers, visits, telephone calls, cards,


floral arrangements and the many
acts of kindness shown the family
during his illness and passing..May
God's richest blessings be yours now
and always.


Unlike numerous communities who
have lost their physicians, an active
recruiting effort by the staff at Gulf
Pines Hospital will result in the
opening of medical practices by two
and possibly three new physicians in
the very near future.
A major problem facing all rural
hospitals is the attraction and main-
tenance of high quality physicians.
Simply put, it takes a special breed of
physician to relocate to areas where
the monetary rewards are significant-
ly less than those enjoyed in large
urban areas. These physicians have a
special sense of caring and sense of
community. Communities and their
citizenry must afford every effort to
attract and maintain these doctors
and their families. A sense of
belonging and welcome often become
the factors that determine whether or
not physicians will stay in rural areas.
Gulf County will have the hospi-
tal, physicians and staff that its
populace supports, defends and de-,
mands.

ject.

from observation deck. Board ap-
proved. Requested County survey and

ft. The Chairman stated the County is
in a quandry over road paving and it is

The Chairman requested Gardner
inquire the specific DOT require-
ments.
Gulf County Senior Citizens Asso-
ciation Director Stokoe reported one
of the large coolers used for Commo-
dity food storage is not working.

-Board approved.
Bill Carlisle, spokesman for a
group of citizens from Overstreet,
requested the Board do something to
the roads in Overstreet as they are in
bad condition. He stated Commission-
ers had promised to pave roads during
the previous election; however, no
roads have been paved. The Chair-
man stated he had made no promises
to pave any roads. There followed a
discussion of road problems and the
Chairman requested the Clerk ask
those'present to write their name and

problem, it will. Those present were:
Mr. and Mrs. Jeff Powell, Mr. Ronald
Bizek, Mr. and Mrs. Wayne Surber,
Mr. and Mrs. William Carlisle and
Herman Baunack.
The Chairman discussed road
pavilig problems throughout the coun-
ty. Branch stated the group made a
request for road paving he'd like to
poll them concerning approval of a
local gas tax to fund road paving, as
until ,the Board received additional
revenue it would not be able to pay the
high cost to pave roads. Peters
reported there is approximately
$352,498 budgeted funds available
road paving ( at approximate rate of
$54,000 mi., the County could pave 6
miles of county roads). Peters stated
he would like to see the County utilize
the money it has and identify roads
that need to be paved (no particular
district, just where needed most). The
Chairman stated the cost of $54,000 is
for road resurfacing; that new
construction costs approximately
$100,000 130,000 mi. and the County
has been discussing twenty miles of
road re-paving.
Mr. and Mrs. Jeff Powell request-
ed more law enforcement in Over-
street (speeding after 5 p.m. and

with speeding in Overstreet (majority
found to be resident), but would
address this problem again.
Bobby Smith and Rodney Slate, of
Simmons Bayou, inquired on the

mits. The Attorney stated George
Core was researching ownership of
the ditch to assure the County had
necessary right of way easements.
Herman Baunack, of Overstreet,
complained about dogs in the residen-
tial areas and asked the Board to
adopt an Animal Control Ordinance.

Vicious Dog Ordinance. Branch stated
he believed the Board previously
voted to advertise to adopt an Animal
Control Ordinance. The Chairman
stated he voted against a leash law.
The Chairman requested the Deputy
Clerk research the minutes and
ordinances adopted by the Board
concerning animal control and mail a
copy to Baunack.

sultant, Merrill Lynch, presented a
short term investment program for

spector Manuel having direct super-
vision (hire people to do field work),
with Administrative Assistant Wells
to check on the program occasionally.
Money moved the Board authorize
Manuel to hire part time employees to
assign house numbers. Peters se-
conded the motion. Manuel suggested
hiring six people (all not working at

Board discussed contract labor at an
hourly rate and providing worker's
compensation insurance. The Attor-
ney advised the Board could sign a
contract with, someone to provide
labor be performed (county not hire
employees). The Chairman suggested
hiring part time employees at mini-
mum beginning wage paid to county
employees, with the Board paying
employee benefits. Upon Branch's
inquiry as who Manuel hired to
complete the house numbering at St.
Joe Beach, Manuel replied he just
hired six available workers. Manuel
stated he was suggesting using
employees of other Board department
or Sheriff's Tirustees: -Up6o vote; the
motion passed unanlimouslj, Branch
requested Manuel be conservative
with expenditures as the planning
funds would be used to complete house
numbering all over the county.
The Mosquito Control presented a
county easement for the ditch at
Ward's Fisheries (never recorded).
Money moved the easement be
recorded. After review the easement,

tion needs to be checked and it is a
hold harmless agreement). Money
withdrew his motion. The Mosquito
Control Director to proceed with State
dredging permit application.

cies. Traylor seconded the motion and
it passed unanimously.

products (audit recommendation).
Upon motion by Money, second by
Peters, and unanimous vote, the

ceive bids on petroleum products, bid
to be awarded for a two year period.
The Chairman requested the Clerk

specifications, with the Mosquito
Control Director and Road Superin-
tendent providing lists of products
used.
Upon motion by Money, second by

Inc. prepared by Associate County
Attorney Tom Gibson, and asked the


Board to approve same. The Board
approved the Chairman executing this
agreement.

ley, Gulf County School Bus Coordina-
tor informed him there was a problem
with a route. At the Chairman's
request, the Board approved the Road
Superintendent meeting with School
Board personnel to solve this road


problem.
The Chairman informed the
Board he had sent a memo to all
Board of County Commissioners'
employees that while operating coun-
ty vehicles they are to observe all
speed limits and speed zones. They
should also recognize that they should
operate vehicles in a safe and proper
manner. Any reports of driving either
too fast or in an unsafe manner which
are.found to be true will be dealt with
by such employee receiving an official
reprimand. The Chairman requested
the Sheriff give this matter his
attention. The Sheriff reported the
employees are driving more safely in
the past few months.
The Chairman reported the Ad-
ministrative Assistant met with the
Franklin County 911 Emergency
Telephone System Coordinator to

required and cost to obtain.
The Chairman reported the Ad-
ministrative Assistant has been in
contact with Lathy Green, Depart-
ment of Natural Resources, Division
of Recreation and State Parks,
concerning placing loads of dirt at the
entrance road to the Fish Hatchery, in
Wewahitchka, and a letter of request
will be sent from the State of Florida.
The Chairman reported the We-
wahitchka Ambulance caught on fire
(the squad had contacted Ford Motor
Company concerning a recall for
replacement of a part on the engine
and were waiting for receipt of the
part prior to fire) and the Fire
Marshall made an inspection today.

stance, the Ford Motor Company is

office.
The Attorney reported the follow-
ing on his research of the law

Water Fish Commission rule up-
graded a few months ago. No game
shall be taken from State, County or
Federal Highways, paved or unpaved.

Fresh Water Fish Commission to
make some exceptions. The Chairman
inquired if the letter the Board
previously approved had been written
to Colonel Brantley (copies to Senator
Dempsey Barren and Pep. Robert
Trammell and surrounding counties)

quested the Clerk write this letter.

Senator Dempsey Barren and Rep.
Robert Trammell (registered mail)
S; and all Florida counties that GUlf
County opposes Florida's vote to call a
Constitution Convention, as when a
convention is called the constitution

the reason for Florida's vote to call a
convention is only to make an
amendment to require the Federal
Government operate on a balanced
budget. Chairman Birmingham gave
the chair to vice-chairman Money to
second the motion. Upon vote, the
motion passed unanimously.
Money reported he received com-
plaints that hunter's dogs were being
picked up by law enforcement agen-
cies, on the Overstreet Road, from
SR71.
Money stated he heard Gulf Pines
Hospital was discussing making tran-
sit runs to make more money and this
would hurt private enterprise. The
Attorney stated the County and the
hospital are negotiating a new con-
tract presently and in those discus-
sions the hospital has not wanted to
perform transit calls. Branch report-
ed the contract negotiated by the
Board's Committee and Attorney with
Gulf Pines Hospital will be presented
to the Board for final approval. Money
stated he would contact his constitu-
ent and ask that he call the Attorney
and Branch for more information.
Upon request of Peters to verify
status of installation of Courthouse
Security System, the Chairman stated
he would check on this tomorrow.
Peters stated he would have more
detailed information concerning in-
stallation of lights in the Courthouse
parking area near the Commission
meeting room by the next meeting
and would prefer giving a report at
that time.
Peters reported, per the Board's
request, he had contacted Parker and
Nobles concerning removing paint
from jail walls and they are to provide
the Sheriff with a rough estimate prior
to the next Board meeting.
The Attorney reported the proper-
ty exchange to obtain property for the
Minimum Security Work Camp had
been completed (all deeds recorded),

Environmental Regulation require-
ments. and everything was right on

The Attorney reported the pro-

the Gulf County Recreation Commit-
tee, reported on the Committee's first

separate programs, City of Wewa-
hitchka and City of Port St. Joe with
each city to administer it's program.
Committee to meet again to discuss


program cost to submit budget
requests for next year's budget.
Upon motion by Branch, second
by Traylor, and unanimous vote, the
Board approved School Superinten-
dent Wilder's proposal (as reported
by Branch) that the County fund one
half the cost (provided the School
Board funds one half the cost) of
materials to be installed at the county
ditch behind the Highland View
Elementary School property, to help


elevate the drainage problem at this
location.
Branch reported he had received
a letter from Nancy Smith, St. Joe
Beach, stating concern with the
amount of litter and dead animals on
Highway 98 from Beacon Hill to Port
St. Joe. The Department of Transpor-
tation is rarely ever seen. Requests

if problem is to be corrected.
Upon inquiry of the Sheriff
concerning the cost estimate to
complete repairs to the jail to be
presented at this meeting by the

man stated three toilets had been

sistant would give a report on this and

State


Fair


Entry

Shown at right is Gulf County's
entry into the 1988 Florida State Fair
held during February in Tampa.
Preparing the display for Gulf
County was the Agricultural Exten-
sion Agent, Roy Lee Carter, who used
the theme "'Gulf County Explores
Alternative Crops", namely crawfish,
catfish and blueberries.


Seventh Grade Class Makes Ambitious Plans


"The class of seventh graders has
been very active this year," accord-
ing to Lynn Kane, Port St. Joe Jr.
High School teacher.
This spring, members of the 7th
grade class of students from Port St.
Joe Jr. High School will be traveling
Sto Epcot Center at the Walt Disney
World Resort, the Magic Kingdom
and Kennedy Space Center. This is an
educational program that affords the
students opportunities to broaden
their perspectives and deepen their
insights in two.areas of their lives -
cultural diversity and rapidly advanc-
ing technology. It would be difficult to
identify two forces that will have
greater impact on their adult lives
during the 21st century.
The Earth Shuttle Educational


Travel Program offers a variety of
hands on activities, human resources,
and instructional materials devel-
oped and supervised by nationally
recognized curriculum experts. The
educational objective of the program
is to actively involve students
effectively in each of the exhibits and
laboratories. The coordinator for this
program is Mrs. Lynn Kane who also
teaches civics and Florida history at
the high school.
The students have been working
hard to earn money for this trip. They
have been involved in bake sales,
doughnut sales, raffle donation, flea
markets, car washes, popcorn sales,
candy sales, balloon sales for Valen-
tine's Day, professional wrestling
match tickets, and concessions. These


students have been very positive and
enthusiastic in their efforts. This week
they will be very active in sales of
wrestling tickets, spaghetti dinner
tickets and a line of Mother's Day
items to raise money for their trip.
During the last several months
these students have also set up their
own student government. They have
written their own laws and estab-
lished their own constitution for their
student government during the course
of their involvement in the study of
civics.


Some of the students currently
scheduled to attend this three day and
two night field trip are: Davy Young,
Becky Carr, Kim Thomas, Leon Gray,
Tiffany Sanders, Brad Buzzett, Zane
Glenn, Charles Watson, Michael
Evans, William Harper, LeeAnn
Nelson, Tyrus Rudd, Kim Butler,
Dana Walker, 'Christina Goggins,
Chris Williams, Dana Earley, Alison
Lowrey, Jason Hathaway, Kiki
Fields, Wendy Miller, Arion Nickson,
Tim Whitfield, Shane Shagena, Jenni-
fer Dykes and Terri Cawthron.


The 1988 budgets of three hospi-
tals in Florida's Panhandle were
approved at the Feb. 23rd meeting of
the Florida Hospital Cost Contain-
ment Board in Miami.
Gulf Pines Hospital of Port St.
Joe was one of these hospitals which
-had its rates examined by the Board.
The 1988 budget of Gulf Pines


Hospital was approved for an average
charge per admission of $2,687 and a
net revenue per admission of $2,251.
The hospital's 1988 budget is a 7.2
percent increase over 1987. Because
the hospital ranks below the 50th
percentile when compared to its group
of similar hospitals. The budget was
subject to automatic approval accord-
ing to Florida law.

34 Million Visitors



Tour Florida In '87


Florida hosted an estimated 34
million U.S. and foreign visitors in
1987, according to figures compiled by
the Florida Department of Com-
merce.
"1987 was the greatest year ever
for Florida's tourism industry," said
Commerce Secretary Jeb Bush. "The
state hosted more visitors who spent
more money than in any previous
year, major attractions reported
record attendance, and hotel occu-
pancy was up, as a whole, across the
state."
Bush attributed the strong year in
tourism to a combination of factors.
Among these were effective market-
ing and promotional efforts by the
private sector and the Commerce
Department's Division of Tourism;
new attractions and improvements to
existing attractions, hotels, and re--
sorts; low airfares and fuel prices;
and the drop in the strength of the
dollar.
Approximately 17.5 million auto


travelers and 16.5 million air travel-
ers visited Florida last year. The
number of auto travelers was up by
2.9 percent over the record total of 17
million for 1986.
A comparison of the total number
of visitors in 1986 and 1987 is not
available because the Commerce
Department used a new and more
accurate method for estimating the
number of visitors who traveled to
Florida by air last year. Beginning
with figures for January 1988, the
Department will provide month-to-
month comparisons of both air and
auto visitors.
According to the Department of
Revenue, sales tax collections in the
tourism recreation category, a
barometer of Florida's tourism indus-
try, totaled more than $1.1 billion
during 1987, or approximately 18.0
percent of total sales tax collections
for the year. Sales tax collections in
this category increased by. 11.5
percent between 1986 and 1987.


Last Date March 15 to Apply

March 15 is the last day.to apply

grain sorghum and soybeans in Gulf
County, according to John W. Law-
rence, Jr., a representative of the

Crop insurance covers unavoid-
able loss of production resulting from
adverse weather conditions, wildlife,
earthquake or fire.
"Three coverage levels (50, 65 or
75 percent) are available for insur-
ance protection. Additionally, FCIC
offers three optional price elections
for valuing production lost or dam-
aged," says Lawrence.
