TRAGEDIES!


Three Young Men Die In Gulf County During

Traumatic Weekend From Three Separate Incidents


Costs for 911



Are Getting



More Definite


Shot Resisting

Arrest Try

Charles Ronnie Wilson, 29, of
Jones Homestead, was shot to death
by a Port St. Joe policeman Sunday
evening about 7:30, when he resist-
ed an atte nt to take him in
custody. The Port St. Joe Policeman
was assisting a Gulf County Sher-
iff's Deputy in attempting to place
Wilson under arrest.
According to Gulf County Sher-
iff Al Harrison, his office received a
call at about 7:10p.m., Sunday from
Comer Powell in Jones Homestead,
that he was having problems with
Wilson, who was Powell's step-son.
He advised the office that. several
deputies might be needed to bring
Wilson under control.
Deputy Sheriff Joe Nugent was
the only deputy on duty and in the
vicinity at the time, responded to
the call, arriving on the scene in less
than 10 minutes. Deputy Nugent
said he observed Powell's pick-up
truck sitting in front of the Powell
home with the windows, lights and
mirrors all broken out.
Nugent said Wilson was out in
the yard at the time, along with his
girl friend, Angela Smith. Wilson
and his step father had been.having
an argument which started when
Powell accused Wilson of driving
his truck while he was drinking.


Wilson smashed this pick-up truck windshield and did other damage in the actions which led to his attempted arrest.


- Deputy Nugent said Wilson then
started towards him with a large
butcher knife in his hand. The knife
was of the variety professional
fishermen use to clean fish. Wilson
made threatening motions with the
knife and Nugent retreated to his
patrol car, got inside and radioed


for back-up.
While Nugent was in the patrol
car, Wilson started beating on the
windows with a stick of firewood
and broke the windshield on the
patrol car.
Port St. Je Police Department
Sergeant Durwqod Smith was on
duty in Port St. Joe at the time, and
answered Nugent's call for assist-


ance. All Port St. Joe Policemen are
also Sheriff's Deputies.
Sheriff Harrison said the log of
his dispatcher showed that Smith
arrived on the scene in about five
minutes. Both officers then at-
tempted to take Wilson into custody.
Deputy Nugent escorted Angela
Smith to his patrol car and placed

Wewahitchka Youth

Drowns In River


A 16-year-old Wewahitchka
man drowned in the Brothers River
Saturday afternoon, when the boat
he was riding in, overturned while
running up the river.
Tony Ray Stevens was pro-
nounced dead at. about 5:30 Satur-
day afternoon, after his body was
recovered from the Brothers River
about a mile north of Howard Creek.
Sheriff Al Harrison gave this
account of the accident:
Stevens, along with Charles
Melvin, Jr., 17 and Paul Richard-
son, 19, were'headed south on the
river in a bateau, powered by a 30
horsepower motor, when the boat
overturned while underway.
All three young men were
dumped into the water and Melvin
and Richardson started swimming
for shore. When they made shore,
they saw Stevens floating face down
near the boat, out in the river.
In just a few minutes another

Wilson broke the glass and tore the screen off the door.


Young Man Killed Instantly In High S
In another tragic fatality, young killed instantly in a single car Street Monday morning.

boater came by and the boater,
Melvin and Richardson pulled Stev-
ens from the water, but determined
that he was dead.
Stevens body was then pulled up
on shore and the boater brought
Melvin and Richardson back to
Howard Creek landing where the
Sheriff's office was called.
Sheriff Harrison and Lt. Jack
Davilla went to the scene to make
the investigation, finding Stevens
dead.
Sheriff Harrison said Stevens
was apparently trapped under the
boat when it overturned, causing
him to drown.
Investigation into the accident
is continuing by the Sheriff's
Department.
The body was transported to the
Medical Examiner's Office in Pan-
ama City to be examined to
determine the official cause of
death.

ipeed Crash
Motor Company, came to work a
few minutes before 8:00 a.m., and at
8:05 a.m., a 1982 Pontiac he was
driving smashed into a huge steel
and concrete ship tie-down stanch-
ion at an extremely high rate of
speed, completely destroying the
car and taking Turner's life.
St. Joe Motor Company owner,
James Bray, said he spoke to
Turner as he entered the business
Monday and Turner returned the
greeting and immediately went to
the used car lot to perform his daily
duties of checking the cars parked
there. He started two cars, checking
them out, and got into the Pontiac.
When he started it up, he drove into
Highway 98 and headed west. A few
minutes later, he was dead.
Florida Highway Patrol inves-
tigators estimated the auto Turner
was driving was travelling in excess
of 70 miles per hour, when it hit the
huge obstruction.
The vehicle broke in the middle
from the impact and folded up like a
folding chair. Turner was ejected
from the vehicle by the impact and
was pronounced dead at the scene.
Port St. Joe Police Chief Carl
Richter said the matter is still under
investigation by his department and
the Florida Highway Patrol. Chief
Richter, Lt. James Graves and FHP
Trooper Jim Powell investigated
the accident.


The Gulf County Commission
received more definite information to
use for arriving at a decision for
inaugurating the 911 emergency
number in the county at their meeting
Tuesday.
County Administrative Assistant
Larry Wells said a meeting with
phone company officials in the last
few days has resulted in learning a
basic 911 system in Gulf County would
have an initial cost of approximately
$65,000 and could be paid for with a 50
cent levy against each telephone
number for a period of approximately
18 months. "The 50 cent levy would
generate an adequate amount to put
the system in", Wells said. Estimates
were that the levy would amount to
approximately $45,000 per year.
Wells said the conference reveal-
ed the county could operate the
system, after the initial investment is
paid off, with a phone levy of 10 to 15
cents per month per number.
Wells said the conference reveal-
ed it would cost some $200,000 to get
into the enhanced 911 emergency
system. The Commission has felt this
system would be too expensive for
Gulf County at the present time, but
the 911 system would be a first step
toward the enhanced system if it
should be a goal in the future.
Wells said the phone company has


said the phone system in the Sheriff's
office must be changed out to
accommodate the 911 system and
asked for permission to investigate
changing the system in the rest of the
courthouse as well.
The 911 system would utilize the
Sheriff's round-the-clock dispatcher
as the central point for emergency
calls which would immediately be
relayed to the proper emergency
service for attention. These services
would include all fire departments,
law enforcement agencies, ambu-
lance services in the county.
HOUSE NUMBERING
One of the preparations which
must be made for 911 and at the
request of the postal service, is
assigning a number and street name
to every subdivided piece of property
in the county.
Building Inspector Dewayne Man-
uel has been at work on the project
and reported Tuesday night his
preliminary work should be complet-
ed within two weeks.
At that time, he will have a street
name assigned to every road and a
number assigned to every building lot
inside the county.
"It'll then be up to the County
Commission to make any changes

DuPont Foundation to


Back College
It is the dream of educators and
parents to eliminate .barriers for
students to attend college and expand
their educational horizons. For Gulf
County, this may no longer be an,
impossible dream.
In December of 1987 the Gulf
County College Counseling Project
Task Force, made up of key educators
and representatives of the general
population, met with two nationally
recognized college admissions and
financial aid officers, David Erdmann
of Rollins College and Richard Dalton
of Middleboro College in Vermont.
Both men have done extensive
research in identifying and building
successful college counseling pro-
grams.
The DuPont Foundation has
agreed to back the project. In the
December meeting, Dalton and Erd-
mann gave brief summaries about the
Jessie Ball DuPont Fund and its
change in interest from bricks and
mortar to helping the human side of
the spectrum.
The goal of the Gulf County
College Counseling Project is to
increase the number of Gulf County
students attending college and to
broaden the educational horizons of
talented graduates of the two county
high schools.
The task force is presently
moving forward with seven initiatives
designed to improve the Gulf County
college-going rate:


Fund Plan
l-Schoarship-to whom, how se-
lected, how much, when
-Financial Aid Workshop-set
for the Fall of 1988;
S -Standardized Test Prepar-
ation-to help students improve ACT -
SAT test scores;
-Expansion of Local Scholar-
ships-expanding the existing pro-
gram;
-Summer Program for Stu-
dents-Five day sessions on a college
campus to help students prepare for
college;
--Early visits by Students to
Colleges--Visits made by students
from grades 7 12; and
-Summer Workshop-a two day
intensive training program (June
13-14) for 20 key individuals who will
work with students.
The Gulf County College Counsel-
ing Project Task Force met again in
January. Erdmann and Dalton intro-
duced David Holmes, from the
University of Vermont, who will
direct the summer workshop and help
make available the sources from
which students may get assistance.
The success of the Gulf County
College Counseling Project depends
on community support and 6nthusi-
asm. Educators and parents must get
an early start motivating students for
college. It is a county responsibility to
motivate students to set goals they
previously could not set and to expand
their visions-to have a dream.


Sales Tax

Local Option Levy Favored By Peters

to Pay for Road Paving Projects


"I've done some research and
come up with an alternative to the
gasoline tax increase to get the money
to pave and maintain our roads",
County Commissioner Nathan Peters,
Jr., informed the County Commission
Tuesday night. Peters then proposed
and made a motion that a question be
placed on the ballot asking county
voters to approve a penny sales tax
to generate funds for road work.
Peters said, "The sales tax will
generate more money than the gas
tax," then went on to explain that such
a tax would collect $307,100 for the
county, $127,200 for Port St. Joe and
$57,900 for Wewahitchka each year.
The proposed five cent gasoline tax
has been estimated to generate less
than half this amount, but would be
matched with state contributions
(provided to counties .which levy the
extra gas tax).
Commissioner Billy Branch sec-
onded the motion for discussion and
said he doubted the sales tax revenue


could be used for road purposes. He
pointed out the local option tax had a
15 year maximum life and was to
provide funds for new construction.
"Besides" Branch said, "The way
our solid waste disposal costs are
heading; we might need that sales tax
option in the future to pay for this
service, rather than finance it with ad
valorem taxes. I don't feel we need to
tie up the sales tax potential with
building and maintaining roads, so I
withdraw my second to the motion."
Branch went on to explain his
position by saying, "I think Mr.
Money's motion at the last meeting to
finance roads with a 5c gasoline tax
levy is the best way to finance roads".
Chairman Birmingham added,
"We also get state matching funds
with the gasoline tax collected local-
ly, I would also favor lowering Ad
Valorem taxes by the same ratio if we
were to levy a sales tax".
Peters' suggestion died when his
motion failed to receive a second,
after Branch withdrew his.

Who's to Blame? Hunker Down with Kes
Who s to Blam e.


for the Mess In Central America

One of our pet peeves over the years has always been that in
Congress, if the Democrats are in favor of something, the
Republicans are opposed. If the Republicans are supporting
something, the Democrats are opposed. That's the way life is on
Capitol hill in Washington, D.C.
To those of us who don't know any better, it seems sort of
child-like and simple-minded for supposedly grown and mature
men to act in such a manner.
The scary part is that several of these men are asking for
the job of being our President.
The latest political football to be fumbled by the men of
Congress was their recent action of turning down aid of any
kind for the Nicaraguan Contras. If they didn't deserve the aid
then, they didn't deserve aid to begin with, and Congress
supported the initial action.
Sitting here in Port St. Joe, in the Florida Panhandle, far
away from Washington, D.C., it is glaringly.evident to us that
Congress has played right into the hands of Daniel Ortega. It
took only a four day visit here to the United States to ascertain
just how unstable Congress-was. He knew they had no intention
of supporting the word or commitment of this nation, now that
the Democrats had numerical superiority in Congress.
So, what did Daniel Ortega do? He knew it was safe to send
his troops into Honduras, or anywhere else there were Contra
rebels, with impunity.
Ortega knew from Vietnam War history and the U.S.'
decision not to follow the enemy to its safe house in Cambodia or
North Vietnam that Uncle Whiskers' men in charge didn't have
the commitment to stick to anything.
Now, Congress-especially men like House Speaker Jim
Wright-are now furrowing their beetle brows over the
President sending a force of fighting men to Honduras to
check-mate Ortega. The Nicaraguan strong-man, on the other
hand, will keep an eagle eye out for Mr. Wright and his
henchmen and so long as they carry the weight in Congress, he
will continue on his merry way.
In the meantime, if Mr. Wright or Mr. Babbit, or Mr.
Kennedy want to assess blame for the mess developing in
Nicaragua and Panama, they can get in front of a mirror and
find the reason.



Hire or Elect?

Both Bay and Leon counties, in the Panhandle area were
considering the hiring of their Superintendent of Schools, rather
than allowing the public to elect them. This question was on the
Presidential Preferential Primary ballot this month in both
'`ourlif, and in both counties the suggestion w turned d6ow
handily..
It appears as if the people know how to keep their hand of
direction on the future of their schools better than the ones who
were supporting and promoting the appointed Superintendent.
The reason given for the appointment was to remove the
School Superintendent from the need to consider politics in the
course of doing his job.
;:' Well, as we see it, making the School Superintendent
S. appointive would only increase the influence of political
pressures in the job. Consider, if you will that the proposed
appointment would be made by the School Board. If the School
Board can hire a Superintendent, it can also fire a
Superintendent. A reason for so doing need not go beyond a
failure to rubber stamp whatever the School Board wants.
With the present situation, the Superintendent can veto the
School Board and their recourse is to go to the State
Department of Education and give proof as to why their
position is better.
The School Superintendent-and the School Board-can be
fired by the people who pay his salary and the other bills
incurred by their actions if things are not done as the people
think proper.

I've Still Got Cotton's


Old Leather Jacket


It seems kind'a funny now that I
never asked, after all I was there for
four years, but it just never crossed
my mind. I suppose the name came
from his snowy white hair. I do know
that everyone from three to ninety-
three, just called him Cotton. Maybe
Cotton was his real name ... he was
owner and operator of Terrill's Tex-
aco Service Station in a town with
about a hundred or so people in it.
Now, I'm not including the college
students, faculty, etc. in this count. If


we're going to be honest I don't hink
Cotton counted them either.
The University of the South is
located on a wind swept mountain top
in southeastern Tennessee. Most folks
passing through would look at those
old buildings and the scenic view of
the valley below and near about
swoon from the beauty of it all. As a
freshman in 1965 I had me some
"spells" but it wasn't caused by the
beauty of the place I guarantee you
that. I was just barely eighteen and I


missed my mother. Nobody here got
up and made peanut butter and jelly
sandwiches upon request.
That first October snowstorm
rolled in and an absolutely intolerable
situation got worse. It was cold,
dreary, windy, snowy, lonely .
yeah, mostly lonely. It was a short
walk from my dorm to the little town
and I found myself one cold afternoon
standing in front of Terrill's Texaco. I
could see some people inside laugh-
ing. You know,it reminded me of

Invasion of Grandchildren


I WAS INVADED last week. The
enemy took over the whole house, the
refrigerator, the cupboard, the pan-
try, both bathrooms and the TV set.
I was just something else which
was in the way that particular Friday
night and Saturday morning. There
was no subtlety in putting me in my
place, either. It was understood by
everyone from the start. My presence
S was more or less tolerated and when I
finally decided to take a shower and
go to bed, I could hear an accumulat-
ed sigh come up from the floor with a
building crescendo.
Until I did go to bed, it was the old
days all over again. By the old days, I
mean back when I was living with my
parents and four brothers and later
on, when there were six kids in the
house demanding attention and sup-


port. Times were such as to try the
patience of Job back then, and so they
were at this particular week end at
our house.

IT ALL STARTED on a Thursday
afternoon, when one of my grandsons
breezed through the make-up room at
the office, here, and announced,
"we're going to have a spend the night
party at your house Friday night!"
Since the grandson is only 10
years old, I paid scant attention to his
announcement, thinking, erroneously
he was still under the guidance and
control of his parents. I hadn't heard a
word of this type plan from either the
parents or my helpmeet.
Such outlandish suggestions are
not unusual for that particular
grandson to make: another reason to
give his pronouncement only a dollop
of credence.
Such wasn't the case, however.


He was serious in his intent and had
about six or seven other grandchil-
dren joining in with his adventure,
which was a mis-adventure to me.
Come Friday afternoon, about
5:30 the grandchildren started to
trickle in.
The refrigerator bore the brunt of
the initial assault, but that was alright
because it needed cleaning out. It got
it.
The ice maker had filled its tray
to overflowing over a period of time,
but was emptied in just moments. The
gallon of milk lasted three door
openings; the juice went next and
before the first half hour was gone, so
was what was left in the refrigerator.
Frenchie doesn't keep one of your
sparsely equipped refrigerators. At
any given time, it is usually full to
overflowing with everything from a
small jar of horseradish to what is left
of last Sunday's roast. It took some

The white haired guy was smiling as
he asked.

Well, Cotton saw through that lie

Letters:

Hospitals Are

A Business
Dear Mr. Ramsey:
I have read with great concern the
article in The Star entitled "Survival
Test for Rural Hospitals." It is my
opinion, based upon twenty-five years
experience as a hospital administra-
tor and consultant, that the hospital
has written its own prescription for
failure. To quote your article: "hospi-
tals pass into history" not because of
lack of community support but
because of the failure of the facility to
come to the people and extend
themselves as a member of the
community. It has been an unfortun-
ate habit of hospitals and their
administrative staffs to wait for the
community to come to them and then,
unfortunately, treat the patient, their
"customer", with an attitude of veiled
contempt. Aren't you lucky, Mr. and
Mrs. Port St. Joe, that we are here so
that we may take your money, rather
than we feel fortunate that we may
join you in providing good health
service care.
I moved to Port St. Joe with my
family, having lived in large metro-
politan areas of Los Angeles, Chicago
and San Antonio. We do not feel living
in Port St. Joe makes us a second
class citizen as inferred by the article,
nor that it takes a special type person
to professionally function here. I am
not reducing my level of income or
potential to develop income by living

comfortable in a recliner with a kid
spread out all over it, sound asleep.
So, what I did, I started talking to
myself about getting this one to do
some yard raking, that one to clean up
the woodpile and another one or two to
cleaning off the carport.
Before breakfast, all those kids
decided they were' needed at home
and began to disappear one by one.
I am getting too old for such
celebrations and you can bet your
bottom dollar the next time a
grandson saunters through the make-
up room and observes, "We're going
to have an all night party at your
house!" I'll pay close attention.
I'll start immediately to express
my objections if this party is once
again to include so many at one time.
If it happens again, in spite of my
objections, I just might give my VCR
back to the St. Joe Papermakers
Federal Credit Union, from where it
came as a prize in the first place.

Your Own Business
ONE OF THE BAD things about working for a company is you tend to
get into a rut. We all know what a rut is; it's a grave with the ends kicked
out.
A major disadvantage of working for one's self is that you don't have
anyone to pass the blame on to if you make a mistake or, God forbid, you
fail.
For most of my adult life I have dreamed of going- into business for
myself and making it big. At long last the first part of my dream has
become a reality. The second part, I now realize, is a long, hard struggle
away.
It doesn't matter, though. If I never make it big, and I know my
chances are about as good as my winning an argument with my wife or
Leon, I will be forever grateful that I just had the chance to try it.
When you work for yourself, you have a tough person for a boss. At
least it's that way with me. It's like being the head of a family; it doesn't
matter what any member of the family does, you're responsible.
++.+++
THE ENTREPRENEUR, however, is the backbone of America.
Being able to start a business, work at it and watch it grow is the basis of
the American way of life. However, it takes a special person to step out on
his or her own and take the chances one must take starting a new
business. A person, in my opinion, should be a little "street wise", have a
little ability and some capital and if they're a little crazy, it doesn't hurt.
If they're not when they start, they will be before long.
One thing I've learned about running my own business is that I
require aboit half the sleep I needed before. My oldest brother once told
me what ittwas like to try to sleep when he was in the Pacific, during
World War II. He stated that he never really slept, but lay down with one
eye open and his hand on his gun. That's about the same description I
would give for the sleep of an entrepreneur.
++++++
FEAR OF FAILURE, they say, is the great motivator of many
people. It has caused many to achieve greatness and wealth far beyond
their wildest imaginations. It hasn't quite done that for me, but it has
compelled me to do some things that I never dreamed of doing before.
It'is often said of people who are successful, "Boy, does he have it
made!" That is true in many cases, but what many people don't know is
the anguish, sleepless nights, headaches and worry, that person has
suffered to get where he or she is. It's rough in the jungle with your back
to the wall.
When things go wrong in a public company, it may cause
considerable worry and concern. The same mistake or misfortune in a
privately owned company, however, can become a potential catastrophe.
One wrong move is sometimes all it takes to open the door and allow the
creatures of the jungle to pounce upon you.
It's a wonderful feeling, being in business for yourself and proof
positive that the American Dream is still alive. If you can dream it, they
say, you can do it.
+ + +++
IF YOU'VE EVER thought of going into business for yourself, jump
on in, the water's. .well, the water's still here!

here. It is my hope that the hospital
administration will become pointedly
aware that my family and I are
consumers of a product in a competi-
tive industry. People do not go to
Panama City or Tallahassee for
medical care because of lack of
community interest; they are shop-
ping for the best product possible.
Gulf Pines Hospital has an excellent
potential to provide a significant
service to the community. The
institution will never survive so long
as the administration of that hospital
attempts to hold the community
responsible for its own failing to
provide effective service. Frankly, I
resent the inference that we as
citizens of Port St. Joe, if we do not
watch our step, will be the cause of the
failure of the institution.
Yes, Mr. Ramsey, it takes a
special breed of person to work in
health care today, not only in the rural
setting but everywhere in this coun-
try. The patient is a customer who
expects service, results, and effective
care. I am afraid, as I mentioned

She had been involved in the.
altercation, arguing with Wilson
and had attempted to strike him
with a shovel.
While Nugent was placing
Smith in his patrol car, Wilson then
approached officer Smith, making
several attempts to cut him with the
knife.
Smith said he then drew his
revolver and told Wilson to drop the
knife. Smith.warned Wilson to stop
or he would shoot. Wilson shouted;
"Go ahead and shoot, I would be
better off dead!"
Smith continued to retreat
before the threatening Wilson until
he retreated across the road in front
of the house and into the ditch
beside the road. When Smith could
retreat no further and Wilson
continued to advance, swinging the
knife, Sgt. Smith fired once, striking
Wilson in the upper left chest.
Wilson was transported to Gulf
Pines Hospital, where he died at
9:20.

this attitude of management prevails.
I would strongly advise the adminis-

facilities who are effectively function-

do to succeed as opposed to pl facing
blame on others if they fail.
Yours truly,

has requested the State Attorney's
office to investigate the shooting
and the incidents surrounding the
altercation. Investigation of shoot-
ings involving a peace officer is
standard procedure in the state of,
Florida.
State Attorney investigator
Wayne White told The Star earlier
this week that the matter is still
under investigation. "We're await-
ing results from the autopsy on
Wilson and investigation of several
other pieces of evidence by the
FDLE before we arrive at any
definite conclusion in the shooting",
White said. The veteran investiga-
tor said they should have the reports
in their hands by today or tomor-
row.
In the meantime, Police Chief
Carl Richter said Sgt. Smith is "on
administrative leave" until final
dispensation of the case and to allow
Smith to recover from the trauma of
shooting a person. "Sgt. Smith has
never been in this kind of situation
before in his career", Chief Richter
said.

bome of the Commission did a
littlJ politicking and some just
rgcted to a face-to-face confrontation
vith a group of residents Tuesday
.iight, in regards to what was
:described as a dangerous and unsight-
Sly situation with a large ditch in
SHighland View.
Residents of the Sixth Street area
complained that a large ditch along
their street was "landlocked", mean-
ing it had no access.for cleaning and
was bounded on both sides' by private
property.-
The ditch was described as a
hazard to many children who live and
play in the area as,well as a health
hazard and, eye-sore.
The ditch, described as a "Mos-
quito Control"ditch, was described by
MC director Sam Graves, as "neces-
sary". Graves said there was no


easement on record to allow the
department to-service the structure.
SNathan Peters made a motion to
place pipe in the ditch, even though
county policy is to cover pipe if
property owners will purchase it.
The Board agreed to make an
exception of this case, if they could get
signed documents from the residents
to allow crossing of their property to
place the pipe and egress to maintain
it, if needed, in the future.
Chairman Doug Birmingham vot-
ed against the measure, saying,
"You're going to have a dozen calls by
morning wanting pipe placed in
ditches".

he'd ask all kinds of questions the next
day over a coke. I met everybody in
town and Cotton proudly introduced
me as not like most of the other
students he's O.K. Boy, did we
chew some tobacco together. And I
was there the day the fight broke out
over which coke plant was closer, the
one in Louisville or the one in
Jackson, Mississippi..
I was also there the Sunday after-
noon my senior year when a local
fellow came in, breathless. The law
had come upon him earlier as he load-
ed the moonshine on his truck. He had
slipped out of the back of the cave and
got away, running all the way up to
Cotton's. The law had his truck, half
full of gallon jars of moonshine
whiskey. Cotton thought a minute and
said, "Joe, run down to the police sta-
tion quick and report that your truck
has been stolen."
Cotton looked over at me and
shrugged, "It's a worth a try."
That smart lawyer from Win-
chester was called and there were no
charges filed. See, I wasn't the only
guy that Cotton helped. I'm just the
one he helped the most.
Funny thing was, I was in that
service station as often as I could get
there for four years, and Cotton never
once seemed to notice that I didn't
even own a car.

Sneads Dumps

Sharks, 5-0
The Port St. Joe Sharks travelled
to Sneads Tuesday afternoon, and fell
victim to the Pirates in a 5-0 loss. Bill
Ramsey (2-1), the starting pitcher for
the Sharks, was credited with the loss,
as he gave up three hits and two walks
in the first inning. He was relieved by
Mickey Gainnie, who pitched 2% inn-
ing, striking out four, giving up three
hits and no walks. Lee Keith came on
in the fifth, giving up 1 hit, 1 run, and 2
walks. Matthew Taylor finished on the
mound for the Sharks giving up 1 hit,
striking out 2, and no walks.
The Sharks' only hit of the game
came off a Jamie Vathis' single in the
second inning. The Sharks only struck
out twice in the seven innings of play,
but just couldn't seem 'to hit Edge's
pitching for the long ball, coupled with
good defensive play by Sneads.
Edge was the winning pitcher, go-
ing five innings, and was relieved by
Hall in the sixth.

Public Fishing Will be Allowed May 15 thru


St. Vincent National Wildlife
Refuge's 1988 public fishing season
will be conducted May 15 September
30. Refuge Manager Jerry Holloman
has announced that renewed fishing
will be permitted in a way that is
compatible with the refuge's primary
objectives of protection and manage-
ment of endangered species and
migratory birds. The fishing season.
has been designed to minimize
disturbances to endangered species
(nesting bald eagles).
Sport fishing will be allowed in
accordance with all applicable State.
and Federal regulations subject to the
following specific regulations:
-Fishing is permitted from sun-
rise to sunset;
-Boats with electric motors are
permitted (all other motors must be
removed from the boats and secured
to a refuge motor rack with a lock and
chain):
-Boats may not be left on the
refuge overnight;
-The use of live minnows as bait
is not permitted; and
-Largemouth bass 12 inches or
greater may be taken.
A fishing regulations leaflet with
map can be obtained from the refuge
office (P.O. Box 447, Apalachicola, FL
32320). Leaflets will also be mailed
upon request by phone (904) 653-8808).

Smn. Mosley

In Training
Navy Seaman William A. Mosley,
whose former guardians are Arlan M.
and Patricia A. Guffey of Wewahitch-
ka, has completed recruit training at
Recruit Training Command, Orlando.
During Mosley's eight-week train-
ing cycle, he studied general military
subjects designed to prepare him for
further academic and on-the-job
training in one of the Navy's 85 basic
fields.
Mosley's studies included sea-
manship, close order drill, Naval
history and first aid. Personnel who
complete this course of instruction are
eligible for three hours of college
credit in Physical Education and
Hygiene.
A 1987 graduate of Wewahitchka
High School, he joined the Navy in
December 1987.


Fishermen should be aware that
water depths will be occasionally
manipulated (lowered) to increase
the production of waterfowl food
plants. Water level manipulations will
also be used to help decrease the
spread of cattails in the various lakes.
Encounters with cattail spraying
crews can also be expected. These and
other activities are conducted to
benefit endangered species, water-


September 30
fowl and other migratory birds.
Fishermen, during this initial
season at least, should not expect the
usual phenomenal success historical-
ly experienced on St. Vincent Island.
The majority of the fish encountered
will probably be restocked fish and
therefore smaller than pre-1985 fish.
However, a few of the bass and
hand-painted brim (bluegill) survived
the 1985 fish kill.

As I mentioned in a previous of D
article, there are both legal and tax ever
aspects to consider when thinking
about incorporating. Therefore, one Port
should consult both an attorney and an Club
accountant before making this very dona
important decision, our
Now, once you have decided to defe
incorporate, you will immediately F
notice that you will have to conduct Ame
your business differently than you the
previously did as a proprietorship or
partnership. For one thing, you are
now an employee of the corporation
and will be paid a salary in the same
fashion as all your other employees.
Getting money out of your business
may not be as simple as it was before
incorporation, that is, without adverse
tax consequences.
Another disadvantage of the
corporation is that its earnings are
taxed twice, once to the corporation
and again to the shareholder when
received as a dividend: However,
most closely held and-or small
corporations with proper planning can
usually avoid the tax on dividends.
All dealings between the corpor-
ation and the shareholders must be
approached with caution. For exam-
ple, the sale of property by the
corporation to a shareholder at a price
less than fair market value could be a
taxable transaction to the shareholder
as, a "cpostructive dividend". The -
amount of.thp dividend would be the
difference between the selling price
and the market value of the property.
There are times when incorporat-
ing your business can save taxes. To
determine this, you have to compare
your personal tax rate with the
corporate tax rate on the level of
income you expect to earn and also
the difference in social security taxes
to be paid under each form of business
entity. There is also a state income
tax for corporations but not for
un-incorporated business entities.
An existing business may be
incorporated tax free.
If the corporation is carefully
planned, it can be an effective tax
planning device. However, there are
numerous pit-falls if not used proper-
ly.
Next week I will cover Subchapter
S corporations.

Sweet Corn Variety Developed for Florida

Developed Several Years Ago by University of Florida F and A


by Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Agent
If you ate fresh corn on the cob
last summer and found that it tasted
especially sweet, you might have been
enjoying an extra sweet corn variety
that was developed several years ago
by the University of Florida's Insti-
tute of Food and Agricultural Sci-
ences. Although this hybrid, call
"Florida Stay Sweet", has not re-
placed standard popular corn varie-
ties, it has been gaining increasing
use.by both commercial growers and
home gardeners.
As its name implies, "Florida
Stay Sweet" corn keeps its sweet
flavor long after it's been harvested,
unlike common sweet corn, which
begins to taste ptarchy soon after it's
picked. According to Extension Vege-
table Specialist, Jim Stephens of the
University of Florida's Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sciences, the
key to this hybrid's sweetness is in its
genetic makeup.
A new gene added to "Florida
Stay Sweet" gives this corn a nine
percent sugar content, compared to
only a three percent sugar content in
regular hybrids. The higher sugar
content also means that "Florida Stay
Sweet" has less starch in its kernels
than regular hybrids. Obviously,
these factors give this variety a true
stay sweet power.
In addition to its improved flavor,



Maddox


Tells of


Australia

Dave Maddox, who recently made
a trip to Australia, told the Rotary
Club about his trip Thursday.
From the tone of Maddox' ad-
dress, he couldn't focus in on the
differences of Australia with a
completely open mind because he was
disturbed over the fact that we had
won the war against Japan and Japan
now seems to own the Pacific Ocean
and all that touches it.
Maddox is a veteran of the Pacific
Theater in World War II.
"Even in Australia, the Japanese
have a very visible presence",
Maddbx said.
The speaker said the people of the-
Rising Sun have all but conquered
Hawaii. "Much of the business and
property is owned by the Japanese".
He said the tourist population was also
heavily weighted toward the Japa-
nese.
Another thing which had an
indellible impression on Maddox,was
a trip he made to Australia's famous
Banzai Beach. "I wasn't.prepared for
that", Maddox said. "At least 80
percent of the women on the beach
were not wearing the tops to their
bathing suits. I'm not used to such as
that".
Maddox told about two other
things which surprised him about
Australia. He said that with all that
vacant land in the Land Downunder,
the houses and buildings were still
crowded very close to each other
when they were built. "They have also
allowed a lot of land to become badly
eroded by lack of care", he said, but
pointed out the Aussies are beginning
to correct that problem.
Another item which struck the
American visitor was that there are
three gauges of railroad tracks in
Austraila. "Here in the U.S. or in
Europe, all tracks are the same
gauge, but in Australia, trains can go
in only certain places because of the
differences in gauge in their track
system. "They are beginning to
correct this situation, too", Maddox
said.
Maddox said he was impressed by
the land, with all its vastness, its
beauty, its wildlife and, of course, it's
world famous opera house.
Guests of the club were George
Chappel, Carl Pettewey and Jack
Taylor of Apalachicola and Jim
Conway of Port St. Joe.

ROY LEE CARTER
"Florida Stay Sweet" has shown some
resistance to Northern Leaf Blight a
serious fungus disease of many of the
common sweet corn hybrids. .
If you'd like to include "Florida
Stay Sweet" in your backyard garden
this year, you should be able to obtain
the seed from your local garden
center. The seeds will be packaged in
a moisture proof bag, and they should
be stored in a cool dry area. If the seal
is broken, moisture in the air will
cause the seeds to lose their vaitality
quite rapidly. So, a seed bag that has
been opened should be resealed as
soon as possible.
Recommended planting dates for
"Florida Stay Sweet" are from
mid-March to mid-April in North
Florida; from mid- February to the
first of April in central Florida.
Since this hybrid has so little
starch in the kernels, its rate of
germination and degree of seedling,
vigor may be less than for the
commonly grown sweet corn hybrids.
To solve this problem, simply plant
extra seed in the row, and:thin the
seedling plants to the proper spacing.:
One precaution, make sure you
keep plantings of "Florida Stay
Sweet" isolated from any regular
sweet corn you or your neighbors may
be growing by at least four weeks
difference in planting dates, or by at
least 500 feet of distance. This is
necessary because pollen from any of
the regular sweet corn hybrids that
falls on "Florida Stay Sweet" silks
will cause starchy, unsweet kernels on
the ears and destroy their excellent
flavors
In sumiiaty "Florida Stay
Sweet" is an improved sweet corn
hybrid, developed by the University of
Florida's Institutes of Food and
Agricultural Sciences, which is gain-
ing popularity with commercial
growers and backyard gardeners
alike. It has three times the sugar
content of the regular corn hybrids,
and retains, its sweetness for a: much
longer period of time after harvest.
So, if the corn you bite into this
summer" tastes particularly sweet,

sioners of Gulf County, Florida met

Branch. Others present were: Civil
Defense Director Administrative
Assistant Larry Wells, Clerk Benny
Lister, Deputy Clerk Maurell Cumbie,
Attorney William J. Rish, Road
Superintendent Bob Lester, Mosquito
Control Director Sam Graves, Jr., and
Chief Deputy Sheriff Jack Davilla.
The meeting came to order at 9:00
a.m.
The Administrative Assistant
opened the meeting with prayer and
led the pledge of allegiance to the flag.
Upon motion by Branch, second
by Money, and unanimous vote, the
Board approved the minutes of
January 21, 1988, Special Meeting and
January 26, 1988, regular meeting,
with corrections.
Oscar Hammond, Smiley Miles,
Eric Hammond, and John Adams
discussed problems of State restric-
tions on the gathering of shrimp and
oysters (restricted to four days per
week, until 4:00 p.m. each day) and
having to travel to an inspection
station in Franklin County. Upon
motion by Branch, second by Traylor,
and unanimous vote, the Board
agreed to write Governor Martinez,
Senator Dempsey Barron, Rep. Rob-
ert Trammell, Department of Natural
Resources Director Tom Gardner,
and the Marine Fisheries Commission
asking that oystering be allowed on
weekends, hours extended, and there
be an inspector available in Gulf
County.
Oscar Hammond stated he
couldn't obtain a copy of State
regulations concerning the Apalachi-
cola Bay and notice of information
when the bay is closed to fishing (due
to high bacteria count). The Attorney
stated this could be obtained from the
Department of Natural Resources.
At Money's suggestion the Board
agreed to request the Department of
Natural Resources hold a public
hearing to the Department of Natural.
.Resources hold a public hearing to
furnish information on regulations
concerning the bay. The Chairman
requested the Attorney schedule this
meeting. Peters requested the attorn-
ey contact Representative Trammell
asking that he also send information
on laws concerning us of the'bay. Eric
Hammond presented a copy of laws
mond presented a copy of laws
governing oystering and shrimping
from Representative Trammell's pub-
lic meeting last night in Port St. Joe,
stating these laws infringed on the
rights of Gulf County citizens and he
thought the State should permit a
limit of one bucket of oysters per
person (picking up oysters).
Charlie Parker, one of the Subdi-
riders, and Robert Nations, engineer,
requested the Board's final approval
of Sea Shores Subdivision Plat. The
Building Inspector reported every-
thing was in compliance except some
lots did not meet minimum size
requirement; however, these irregu-
lar shaped lots met square footage
requirement. The Road Superinten-
dent reported all roads acceptable,
Board received letter from subdivider
agreeing to recap all roads in a two to
three month period, and subdivision
has proper drainage. He requested the
engineer mark ditch corners (engine-
er replied they are already staked);
Upon motion by Money, second by
Traylor, and unanimous vote, the
Board accepted Sea Shores Subdivi-
sion Plat, with the stipulation of
approval of a request for variance for
all undersized lots at the next
meeting. Branch stated he was voting
yes, provided the variance is granted
and plat meets all other subdivision
requirements. Peters voted no.
Jef Gardner, Port St. Joe Jay-
cees, requested the Board approve
and assist with control burning and
burying of the trees and shrubs
cleared from an area of the Beacon
Hill County Park for use as a softball
field. At Branch's suggestion, the
Board approved the Mosquito Control
Director taking care of this. Upon
motion by Traylor, second by Money,
and unanimous vote, the Board
approved connecting the Beacon Hill
County Park facilities to Mexico

fee, $16.50 minimum monthly bill for
up to 1,500 gallons, over that $.85 per
gallon as reported by Gardner per
discussion with the City of Mexico

ed the Board advertise to receive bids
to purchase a pickup truck and flat
bed truck for the Road Department.

bid on the project.
Peters reported he received a
letter from Robert W. Wilford,
Panhandle Alcoholism Council, that
the program SOS has been discontin-
ued (program to help teenage drug
and alcohol abusers). Peters moved
the Board write the Legislature the
Board supports its funding of this
program. Traylor seconded the mo-
tion. Branch stated he would like to
obtain information on why the pro-
gram was deleted. Maybe it is a
duplication of spending funds for
programs with the same purpose. He
requested the Board write and inquire
the reason. Upon vote, the motion
passed unanimously. The Chairman
directed the Administrative Assistant
write this letter to the legislature,
stating even though the Board is
asking for support of this program, it
is inquiring why the program was cut.

about the ditch at Ward's Fisheries
being dug and the County not having
an easement. Money stated the
County should have a ditch easement

the County is being requested to clean
and there is need for public access to
the ditch. The Attorney reported the
county had an easement from the
highway to the ditch, but not the ditch.
The Chairman requested the Adminis-
trative Assistant write the appropri-
ate persons that the County needs the
ditch easement. The Chairman re-
quested Money also discuss this with
the persons to give the easement as
the County needs the easement and
the ditch must be for general public
use.

plaints that boats docked near the
Indian Pass Boat Ramp are banging
against the side wall and requested
the Road Superintendent have tires
placed on the side walls. The Board
agreed.

renovate the two Commission-built
ramps on the Dead Lakes (necessary
permits to be obtained in two to six


months, two week renovation time).
Peters moved the Board place the
question if people were in favor of a
$.04 gas tax to fund county road
paving projects on the next election
ballot. Money seconded the motion for
discussion. Money inquired if people
vote against this, is it binding. The
Chairman stated the Board had until
September to consider this action.
Peters stated his concern is to give the
Board a start on planning for next
year, in the meantime the Board could
use available County funds to work on
as many roads as possible. The
motion failed with Peters voting yes,
Money, Branch, Traylor and the
Chairman voting no. The Chairman.
stated his reason for voting no was the
Board may have, no other choice

Root Fungus Helping Sea Oats

to Protect Florida's Beaches


A- root fungus that acts like a
fertilizer may save millions of dollars
in the battle against erosion along
Florida's famous coastline. New
research conducted at the Institute of
Food and Agricultural. Sciences
(IFAS) shows that infecting nursery
grown sea oats with mycorrhizae
hastens dune stabilization by boosting
the plant's growth rate, said David
Sylvia, assistant professor of soil
microbiology in IFAS.
"The problem in Florida is
extensive. At least 250 miles of
Florida coastline are in a critical state
of erosion," Sylvia said.
In undisturbed dunes, sea oats are
the primary plants responsible for
preventing erosion. About 20 com-
mercial nurseries in Florida currently
grow the dune-stabilizing species for
planting in coastal areas that have
had the protective vegetation re-
moved, he said.
Sea oats grown in undisturbed


dunes are colonized rapidly by. my-
corrhizal fungi. The fungus acts like a
biological fertilizer, helping the plant
absorb water and nutrients from the
sandy soil, he said.
"How quickly mycorrhizae form
depends on the proximity of natural
dunes as a source.
The IFAS scientist has developed
a way to hasten this inoculation
process. Sylvia has isolated a strain of
mycorrhizal fungus that he cultivates
*4 under a mist system, then mixes with
potting soil used for growing sea oats.
It is one of the first practical
applications for the root fungus and
results are promising.
"Sea oats inoculated with mycor-
rhizal fungi were planted along the
coastline of Miami Beach in a
growth-rate experiment. In one year
there was an 80 percent increase in
plant growth compared to areas
planted with untreated sea oats." he
said.
