Candidate Qualifying

Books to Open Monday
County and state potential candidates for office will be officially off
and running Monday at noon, according to Supervisor of Elections, Cora
Sue Robinson.
Robinson said this week qualification books will open in her office
Monday at noon to officially sign up candidates and receive qualification
fees for anybody running for a county office.
"This year, everybody in the courthouse is up for re-election except
the County Judge", Robinson said. Thus far, only Sheriff Al Harrison has
drawn opposition and Robinson says she has had no indication any other
full-time official in the Courthouse will draw any opposition. "However,
you can't tell for sure until the qualification period closes Friday of next
week at noon", she said.
In Gulf County, with the exception of the Courthouse offices, positions
up for election include two school board members and three county
commission members.
The Gulf County School Board has incumbents Waylon Graham from
District Four and James Hanlon in District Three. Both have opposition.
The County Commission will have incumbent A. B. Traylor from
District One seeking re-election. The seats from districts Three and Five .
apparently are open. Incumbent William Branch from District Three has
said he will not seek re-election and a definite decision has not been issued
by District Five Commissioner Eldridge Money at press time. Money had
said earlier he was taking the matter under consideration.
All three county commission districts already have declared

begin budgets workings.

The Gulf County Commission
gave its official permission Tuesday
fbr Baskerville-Donovan Engineers to
Iegin preparation of plans to close the
Huckhorn landfill in north Gulf County
by December 31. The Buckhorn
landfill has been designated by the
Department of Environmental Regu-
lation as not being in compliance with
their operational rules and regula-
ftions and has cited the county for its
continued operation.
The preparation of engineering
plans to close the fill area, setting out
provisions for all requirements of
DER in closing the site will have a
$ $3,000 price tag attached, Ella
.Brown, engineer representative for
BDE, told the Commission Tuesday.
-Brown said plans to fill all four tasks
required by DER will cost $26,000 and
plans to provide a fifth task, which
will allow the county to open another
fill area in the vicinity of the present
Sone:.will cost an extra $7,000.
i ,Brown told the Commission the
DRR order didn't keep them from
filing for another permit to build
another landfill adjacent to the
present fill site to DER specifications.
The present fill was scored by DER
because it didn't have proper drain-
age, and didn't have a liner inside the
pit to prevent leachate of ground

Brown's explanation of the coun-
ty's ability to seek another permit
followed on the heels of a refusal by
Commissioner Nathan Peters to vote

consent order to close the site. Peters
said he felt closing the site would put
the county in a position of not being
able to deal with other sources to

handle Gulf's solid waste "Because
we will have no option but to take their

present deal with Bay county to burn

Mayor Bob Jones shows how simple it is to just dial 911 for any
emergency service.

Dial 911

Service Starts Friday for

Mexico Beach Residents
Dialing the numbers 9-1-1 on their telephone will get any emergency
service offered for the people of Mexico Beach after midnight Thursday
night. The beach community will be a part of the Bay County E911
network, which will offer such emergency services as medical, fire,
or police services by dialing the 911 number. The service has been nearly
a year in the decision and installation processes in Bay County.
The E911 system which Bay has installed is unique in that a
sophisticated computer system tells the central answering point where
any particular call for emergency response is coming from and pinpoints
the location of the phone from which the call is being made. The system is
designed to be able to provide emergency response to people in trouble
who can't talk or under such stress they can't respond to questioning. It
also drastically reduces any crank calls.
According to Mexico Beach Mayor Bob Jones, the system will
dispatch all emergency services in Mexico Beach from the Bay County
answering point for 911. "Our emergency alert services have previously
gone through the Gulf County Sheriff's office, but all this is changed
now". Mayor Jones said people who need attention from the emergency
services which aren't emergencies should continue to dial 648-5984. "If
you have an emergency of any kind in the future, just dial 911" Mayor
Jones said.
Mexico Beach is also in the unusual situation of being served by St.
Joseph Telephone and Telegraph Company handling their telephone
service, while the remainder of Bay County (less Tyndall Air Force
Base) is on the Bell System. Mexico Beach 911 calls are automatically
transferred to the Bay County answering points by the St. Joe system,
where the response can be initiated in Bay County.
On the 911 emergency system, residents of Mexico Beach who dial for
response will receive ambulance service from Bay County, Sheriff's
response from Bay County, Police and fire services from their own
Mexico Beach departments.
Any emergency call is immediately relayed to the proper responding
service when the caller dials the number and asks for medical, fire or
police response.
The 911 system is becoming an international emergency call number
and is being introduced to Florida at a fast pace. Several other area
counties have the emergency number service, but not all have the E911,
or enhanced 911 service.
The 911 service is offered at no cost in taxes. The service is
funded-in Bay County's case-by a fifty cent monthly charge on the
telephone. Once the original installation cost has been amortized, the
charge will be altered to provide only operation and maintenance costs.
Florida statutes freeze the telephone charge at no more than fifty cents.


No Choice
If there's someone who doesn't know, by now, about the
shooting down of the Iranian airliner by an American war ship,
he has been hiding out in a deep mine shaft in Lower Slobovia
for the past two weeks, without seeing the light of day.
If there is somebody who hasn't expressed an idea about
how it could have happened, he (or she) is totally deaf and mute
to the point of being entirely uncommunicable.
With all the supposition about what happened, we find it an
impossible matter to believe that had the captain of the USS
Vincennes even suspected he was shooting at a plane load of
civilian passengers, he would not have shot his missiles. Period.
End of second guessing.
There was much in the news late last week about
comparing the downing of the Iranian passenger jet with the
Russians shooting down the Japanese airliner off the coast of
Korea a couple of years ago. Actually there's no comparison
and we feel that if it is brought up, the Americans will bring it
up to point out the lack of comparison.
The Iranian plane was flying over a war zone with active
engagements actually taking place. We find it hard to believe
that British Airways would have sent flight 606 on its way to
Scotland during World War II during a bombing of London by
Germany, simply because it was time for the flight to leave.
They probably would have delayed the flight until things along
its path cooled down. If the Iranians didn't intentionally send
their plane on its way over an active fire-fight in progress, they
are more stupid than we all gave them credit for.
We may be overly cynical, but we buy the theory the
Iranians staged the whole thing. We have only the Iranians
word the plane was an Airbus with 290 passengers on board. We
have only their word the pictures shown on TV were pictures of
casualties resulting from the action, etc., etc.
We all know the Iranians' word isn't the most reliable
source of information in the world.
The captain of the American ship was still being
second-guessed late Friday of last week about whether he
reacted in the proper manner or not. All those high-powered
military and diplomatic brains still didn't have the answer they
wanted after five days of discussing the matter. The captain pf
the ship had only four minutes to decide all the factors it has
taken five days for others to examine.
It's sad that possibly 290 died, but the captain of the USS
Vincennes shouldn't be saddled with all the blame.

Here Comres the Circus!
The holidays are all over for a couple of months and time
now to get into the serious business of running two circuses this
summer. Summer is usually the prime vacation month in our
country and this year's vacation time will be interrupted by
those two amusement centers, the Democratic and Republican
national conventions.
We can hardly wait. In just a short while we will have all
our favorite TV re-runs., interrupted by the incessant banging of
gavHt@eports from electronic reporters roaming the floors,
speef'afteri speech after speech the suspenseful exercises
of selecting George Bush and Mike Dukakis as the standard
bearers of the two parties in a breath-taking late-night
maneuver which will reveal the selections by their particular
parties like it has a deep, dark secret all this time as to who the
nominee would be.
The only surprise to be witnessed during both conventions
will be to reveal who their running mates will be. By the time
the conventions start, later this month, we'll probably know
who these persons will be.
The two sides have already taken off the soft gloves and
started hammering away with bare knuckles at each .other.
Dukakis is building his public portrait of George Bush as a
wimp. George Bush, on the other hand, is poo-pooing the
strategy saying everyone knows he is the next best thing to
Mike Tison when it comes to political in-fighting.
Actually, if we're going to elect a president to handle our
financial mess, we could pick most any working stiff off the
street, struggling to pay his mortgage, feed his family, make
the car payment and keep his kids in school and he. could give
you the formula for settling our financial problems in a hurry.
Just don't spend more than you take in.

Black Draught Was Ambrosia Compared to Castor Oil In OJ

Kesley Colbert for this week's column
subject. Kes's "Hunkering Down"
last week talked about his mother
giving him some of that foul-tasting
black draught for everything from a
wart on the nose to athletes foot.
Actually, Black Draught might be
a good remedy for athletes foot, if
you rubbed it on liberally during an
itching attack.
Old Kes does a good job of
remembering the "good old days",
but he's not quite old enough to
remember the days we all want to
forget. Those days came along about
10 to 20 years before the good old days.
The days we would like to forget
came along just prior to and during
World War II and prior. The good
old days came along during- the late
40's and early 50's, with the present

days being the perfect days if they
could be shoved back to the early 50's
and late 40's setting.
We have people who are ruining
what could be the perfect days with
their drug' habits, their so-called
sexual freedom, neighborhoods which
are war zones and the like.
If folks back in the late 40's and
early 50's had our living standard of
today, there would have been no Black

tobacco poultices and Cloverine salve.
be glad he came along when he did,
and the only distasteful memory he
has to put up with is Black Draught. I
came along before Black Draught was
so popular, even though it was
available in my boyhood days. But
there were reasonable facsimilies of

Black Draught prior to 1940.
There was castor oil.
There was calomel.
There was sulphur and molasses.
There were uncle Dr. John Erv
Cargill's horse pills.
There was plenty around to make
Black Draught look like a soft drink on
a hot day.
I'll agree with Kesley on one
thing. If it's a patent medicine it had
to have an awful taste. I never could
figure out how they could make an
elixer so effective as to cure anything
one had, but didn't have the ingenuity
to make it good tasting.
++ + ++
I CAN STILL remember my
mother getting out the Syrup Pepsin
or the castor oil every time I came
down sick with anything. I would have
traded either for a slug of smooth
tasting black draught.
I took castor oil, cold, hot, warm,
mixed in orange juice or with a strap

on my rump if I didn't take it.
I was a grown man before I would
drink orange juice again, after being
forced to take it with castor oil for
those years of childhood.
Castor oil was made to lubricate
fine machinery, not my innards.
My uncle, Dr. John Ervin Cargill;
lived just up the street from us. He
was an old, old man the first time I
remember seeing him. Actually, he
was retired from doctoring. He had
practiced in the small town we lived in
when it was in the throes of an oil
boom. He must have made a good bit
of money because he lived in the
largest and nicest house in town. It
was the only house in town in which
the indoor bathroom was actually an
indoor bathroom. Other people had
indoor bathrooms, but since the city
had no sewer system, these rooms had
been converted to closets and storage
rooms. Everyone else enjoyed the
outdoor facilities.

Uncle John Erv, as we called him,
delivered all five of us boys and did a
small practice, even though he was
It seemed to me he had three jars
of pills. Large, larger and largest,
none of which tasted .good. These pills
were prescribed for'almost every-
About the clearest thing I remem-
ber about uncle:John Erv, the doctor,
is that he had a granddaughter which
came to see him every summer, who
had the only tennis racket I had ever
seen a kid have which had all the
strings intact. All the rest of us kids,
had at least one string broken in our
rackets and most had more. .

unusual medicine I remember, was
coal oil. To those who haven't been
there, coal oil is kerosene and the very
poor gave a spoonful of coal oil for
medicinal purposes, if you couldn't

There was a family who lived in
our town who had a daughter get

(or lack of money) kept them from

have to believe the $10.00 wonder drug

Stepping Out

RECENTLY WE HAD house guests who spent a little over a few days
with us. The second Saturday they were here we had a picnic on the point
at Cape San Bias.
The picnic was the last event in our little bag of tricks to keep guests
entertained. It was a beautiful day and as the sun began to set low in the
west, I thought how nice it was going to beto get home, clean up, eat a
light meal, watch a little TV and get a good night's sleep.

"WHAT ARE WE GOING to do tonight?" my friend asked me as I
headed the boat back toward Port St. Joe.
"I don't know," I answered, clenching the steering wheel firmly,
"What'do you want to do?"
"I'll tell you what let's do!" he exclaimed, in a tone that reminded me
of our college days some years back, "Let's go honky-tonkin'!"
"What did you say?" I asked, with a trace of disbelief in my voice. "I
thought for a minute you said, 'let's go honky-tonkin'."
"That's exactly what I said," he exclaimed proudly.
"Are you crazy? Have you lost your complete miid?" I asked, as
serious as a flu bug in a church congregation. "There ain't no way I'm
going honky-tonkin' tonight or any other night. .and that's final as a
"You must be getting old," he said'in a somewhat subdued voice.
"I am," I replied, "and I want to keep getting older. That's why I
ain't going out foot-stomping tonight." .
+++++ .
IT'S NOT THAT I'm opposed to a little, night-life; I was once on the
circuit and rode it well. I was very lucky, I now realize, and I'm riot about
to tempt fate by trying it again.
I was fortunate to live through some very sticky nights in my younger
days. I once'went in a bar in Knoxville, Tennessee, where they checked
your gun at the door. If you didn't have one, they issued you one and made
you buy the ammunition. The first thing I did was buy everyone in there a
drink. The next thing I did was buy myself a double, drihk it and make for
the door.
One night, on the way to Gulfport, Mississippi from Hattiesburg, I
had to fight my way into a place. "Do you really think we should. go in
here?" my date asked as she ducked to miss a roundhouse right. "Why
not?" I said, as I pushed a bloody-nosed fighter off to my left, "The trash.
is out here. It's got to be peaceful inside."
Another night, several years ago, I witnessed a confrontation that-
was to mark the beginning of the end of my night-life career,
Two men, seated next to me and my wife, had a disagreement and
one invited the other outside to settle the dispute. Once outside, the first,
man pulled a large knife from his pocket and told the second man, in no
uncertain terms, how bad he was going to cut him.-
Undaunted, the second man reached into his back pocket and brought
forth a pistol and proclaimed, "You're a bigger fool than I thought,
'bringing a knife to a gun-fight!"

THAT, DEAR FRIENDS ended my night-life career!!!

The whole. Iraq Iran Persian
Gulf situation is too complicated for
me to understand. And I realize that I
don't know enough to comment on it.
But I don't think sending money to
people that are holding American
hostages is a good idea. I don't think
money is going to make them hate us
any less. And it seems to me we could
use the money here at home. I bet
those drought-stricken farmers in the
Midwest could use it. Or how about
sending. it to those families that lost
sons, husbands and .fathers on the
U.S.S. Stark.
Shouldn't someone in Iran share
some responsibility in this "tragic ac-
cident"? Surely somebody over there
knew a fight was going on. Why didn't
the plane respond to the signals we
sent out? And who in their right mind
would send a commercial flight over a
battle area?
The Iranians don't think like we
do. They don't regard human life as
we do. They d don't view most things
like we do. That makes them hard, if
not impossible, to understand. It also
makes them difficult to deal with. I
could be wrong and I'm going to stand
behind whatever our country decides
to do. But somehow it just doesn't
seem right to pay 'em and fight 'em at
the same time.

The Class of '68 had a fabulous
day at their 20 year reunion Saturday,
July 2. The weather held sunny in
spite of negative predictions. The
water, sun, food and games were
enjoyed by the 60 or more who
attended the beach party. Several
traveled well over 1,000 miles to
attend. One class member came all
the way from Germany to see her
classmates. It is this type of long-last-
ing friendship and caring which each
and everyone attending shared
throughout the day and into the early :
hours of the next day as the party
continued until 3:00 a.m. at- the
Thunderbirds Club in Panama City.
The night ended quickly, but the
memories shall not! Class members
left that night seemingly sharing an
even stronger bond than they felt 20
years ago. Those who attended wish to
extend their regrets to those who did
not and hope you will share in the fun
and excitement at the next reunion.
Class members would like to say a
"special thanks" to Dr. and Mrs. Joe
