They're Off Running In Gulf County



28 Have Already Paid Their


Qualifying" Fees to Seek Office
\^r~~~~... '//// / s& -- 0 < /- < 0 l /-0': q j"


Qualification for the fall primary elections jumped
off to a fast start early this week, with 28 candidates
already signed up to seek election to 11 offices,
according to Supervisor of Elections, Cora Sue
Robinson.
At the opening hour on opening day, the lobby and
hall outside the door to Robinson's office were full with
potential candidates, waiting to file their papers and pay
their qualification fees with County Commissioner
candidate, Donald Parker the first to make it to the
counter to fill out his papers.
As the clock struck 12 noon, the candidates started
crowding around the Supervisor's counter, with friendly
kidding and laughing the uniform of the day. Candidates
in various races wished each other luck and then it was
off to the long hot ordeal of digging out votes.
There were very few surprises as the qualification
time drew toward the starting point. Most of those who
signed up to be candidates had already made their
intentions known to seek office.
BOOKS STILL OPEN
Robinson said the qualifying books will remain
open until Friday at noon; tomorrow.
It has been the experience here in Gulf County that
very few candidates sign up at the last moment. Most
usually have their mind made up on that first day and
are eager to get to the business of campaigning just as
quickly as they can.
Five offices which will be on the ballot this year,-
have only incumbents registered to seek re-election.
They, of course, are anxiously awaiting the close of the
qualifying period on Friday to see if they are going to
have an opponent. All five of these seats are for full-time


courthouse offices.
THE LINE-UP
Only one of those full-time courthouse offices has
opposition. Sheriff Al Harrison will meet his opponent of
four years ago, former Gulf County Sheriff Ken Murphy
and a former Okaloosa County Sheriff and Gulf County
deputy, Frankie Mills.
In this race, three will probably definitely be a
crowd. The race will be attention compelling.
In the three County Commission districts on the fall
ballot, two incumbents have chosen not to seek
re-election, which has made for a crowded field of
hopefuls in these two districts.
In District One, incumbent A.B. Traylor was the
only incumbent to seek re-election., but he has attracted
four opponents. There is his opponent of four years ago,
Jimmy Gortman and newcomers, Ralph Fisher, Charles
Hood and James F. (Frank) Whitfield.
District Three has had incumbent Billy Branch elect
to step aside and there are six who want to take his
place. The six signed up to seek election to the District
Three seat include Gregory Burch, James E. Creamer,
Jef Gardner, Walter Graham, Carl Goodson and Mrs.
Marion Hough.
The District Five seat is also being vacated.
Eldridge Money announced last week he would not try
for re-election. Three have signed up to attempt to
replace Money. Two had said they would run before
Money's decision of last week. Donald Parker and Mrs.
Dottie White said they would be candidates. After
Money's decision, Ray Ramsey stepped into the fray and

Local S&L

Expanding
Work is getting under way this
week to double the size of the Citizens
Federal Savings and Loan Association
building on Fifth Street, here in Port
St. Joe.
Workmen began digging the foun-
dation on Monday of this week, but
work won't officially begin until this
morning, when the directors and
officers of the Association will offi-
cially break ground at 10:00 a.m.,
according to Greg Johnson, manager
of the savings and loan.
The expansion will also include a
face-lifting on the present building,
changing its facade from the modern
lines it has had since the building was
built, to more of a colonial pattern.
Johnson said the project will take
several months to complete and will
include drive-in facilities on the east
side of the building.
"We're excited about finally
getting started with the actual work of
building", Johnson said.


Gregg Burch announced his can-


Gregg Burch


didacy for the office of County
Commissioner District 3 last week.
Comments Burch, "We can no longer
be satisfied with short term solutions
to long range problems. We need to
begin moving in the direction of a
growing Gulf County with constantly
increasing demands being placed
upon our resources."
Gregg is a lifelong resident of Gulf
County and is the son of Roy and
Verna Burch of Port St. Joe. He is a 36
year old veteran and graduate of the
University of West Florida, currently
working toward a Master's Degree in
education. Gregg is the art teacher at
Port St. Joe Jr.-Sr. High School, being
recognized as Teacher of the Year in
1986. Gregg is the current president of
the Port St. Joe Jaycees. In addition,

city's beautification committee re-
ported to the City Commission Tues-
day night, calling on the governing.
body to begin implementing its
nuisance ordinance which has been on
the city's books for several years.
"We ran into the situation where
the property owner says why should
he clean up his messy property? The
city isn't going to make him".
Sellers asked for a change in that
way of thinking and asked that the
city officially notify several property
owners on a list of unsightly spots
turned in by the committee.
Commissioner James Roberts
said the city shouldn't send such a
notice to a few. It should go to
everyone; particularly everyone who
has an unsightly problem on their
property. "We can't ignore anybody
and be fair about it", Roberts said.
The City Commission joined in
with the thinking of the beautification
committee and saw the need to clamp
down on violations of the ordinance
throughout the city.
As a result of the discussion by
Sellers and the determination by the
commission to enforce their ordin-
ance, the Commission agreed to
advertise their intentions in The'Star
and send out letters to every property
owner in the city limits, outlining their

Fixing

Up the

Holes

Workmen from Parker Mechani-
cal started the job of repairing streets
in the city this week, after a
months-long project of repairing
damaged sewer mains.
The construction firms dug up the
paving in several places south of
Ninth Street to make repairs to
collection mains. The repairs are
complete now and the repairs to holes
in the roads are beginning.
Several places in the First Street
vicinity have entire blocks of paving
torn up. Along Long, Woodward and
Garrison Avenues, several smaller
holes were dug to make repairs.
The photo at left shows a Parker
grader smoothing out one of the larger
excavations on Long Avenue at the
First Street intersection, in prepara-
tion to laying down a hard surface.

Hunker Down with Kes


by Kesley Colbert


We Didn't Know We


Were Getting A Bad Call


Well, the candidates are officially off and running now; at
least some of them are.
We'll hear all kinds of things about what "I am gonna do"
out of the ones running, so we can all brace ourselves to take
these claims and digest them slowly and decide whether or not
the candidate can actually do what he or she says they will do.
Too, we must consider whether or not what they claim they will
do or try to do would be the best things for our county as. a
whole. Some of the aims will be wild and impossible to
accomplish and some will cost us more of our tax money or
divert some of the tax money from other sources. We will have
to judge priorities for our current tax income, or get ready for,
an increase.
Some of these pies in the sky sound good and'desirable to..
papy- of u9, but the price tag would be unacceptable. Just'
rq ..tnrber, everything the candidate says he will do must be
paid for by you and others like you.
Actually, we're more interested in seeing something done
which will cost all of us With a telephone a few pennies each
month, but it won't cost a dime in taxes. We want to see the
seldom talked about 911 system in place in Gulf County. If a
County Commission wants to impress us, he or she can vow and
declare they will pursue the 911 system to its completion.
Don't get us wrong. This won't be the sole criteria of
receiving our vote. The rest of their aims must be sensible,
cost-effective plans which would aid the county as a whole.
The 911. system would be just one-although it is an
important one in our priorities-of the needs for attention in our
county.
Within the past week, Bay county has joined several others
around Gulf in adopting the 911 emergency call number.
Calhoun and Franklin counties either have the systems in
operation or approved by their governing bodies and are just
waiting for installation.
Our county isn't growing by leaps and bounds, but we are
growing. With this growth is an expanding population of elderly
people whose main contact with the outside world and safety is
their telephone. We think the 911 system is essential to our
county and we hope the next version of our county commission
thinks so too.


Deadline Near

We should also remind you that Supervisor of Elections,
Cora Sue Robinson has said those who are not registered to vote
in Gulf County have about two weeks-til August 6-to register
in order to be able to cast their ballots in the September and
October primaries.
This is important. Florida law requires the Supervisor to
close her registration books within a certain period prior to an
election, for accepting registered voters. She usually bends
over with accommodation/as an election draws near in order to
allow as many people as will the opportunity to register to vote.
We think people shouldn't have to be reminded, special
accommodations made, or begged to register to vote. In our
opinion, people should be hunting up Cora Sue and asking her to
allow them to register to execute this freedom.
We all like to express ourselves when our elected officials
do something which doesn't please us, but we have no right to do
so unless we take an active part in the election of those officials.
If we don't vote, we should keep our mouth shut.



Who's A Barbarian?
Another little blurb about the shooting down of the Iranian
airliner.
Mike Royko was discussing the Iranians labeling us as
"inhuman" for shooting down the airliner. Royko said there
was hardly anyone in the world, except Iranians, who thought
the captain of the USS Vincennes said, "Goody, there's a plane
load of civilians, let's shoot it down!"
That didn't happen.
Royko didn't mention that on several occasions, Iranians
have said, "Let's hi-jack us a plane load of helpless civilians
and kill a few and beat several to gain the attention of the
world!"
Who are the barbarians?


When I was a Little Leaguer back
in the days of ironing boards and
knock-knock jokes I dreamed of hit-
ting a baseball like Roy Hobbs, of get-
ting the big hit and driving in the win-
ning run, of taking my team into the
state tournament. We were runners
up in the district over at Jackson one
year but we didn't even get a trophy.
About the only trophy we ever got was
a milkshake at the Dairy Bar after the
game. 'Course I don't think that
counts as a trophy 'cause it seems like
we also got one when we lost.
We didn't win much but we had
fun., And what memories! And what
friendships. Very few days pass that I
don't think of Yogi, Ricky, Buddy,
Jackie. I could name the whole
team and it's been thirty years. I had
a Revelation glove that didn't even
have lacing in the fingers-you had to
catch it in the pocket. Boy, I admired
Jackie's three fingered glove. It was a
real glove, made by A.G. Spalding
and Company. Of course, it cost six


dollars.
I'm involved with another little
league group now. Our Dixie Youth
team won the District Championship
last night and move over to the state
tournament in August. You think our
boys played hard-you should see the
parents. I tell you it's tough to watch
an entire game night after night with
your heart in your throat. God has
allowed me the privilege of both play-
ing little league and now watching my
son play. I tell you, of the two, it is
tougher to watch. The umpires when
you played just called you out or safe.
Now you get upset if you think he
wronged one of your guys. And the
other team always has the bigger
boys. You want to help your guys out
but you can't.
Of course the past couple of tour-
naments our guys hadn't needed
much help. Adam starts it off for us
and he can play. Kendrick has the
quick hands and Bird played hurt.
Kevin popped a big one into right,


COLBERT


Elton started the double play and
have you noticed how Damien kind'a
slides on his side. Tappan hustles,
Darin calls me Mr. Colbert and Chris
might have the best swing of all. Mr.
Shannon had a couple of rough nights
but he banged one through when we
had to have it. Jasmine can generate
some bat speed, Des is simply the best
second baseman going and it doesn't
seem possible that this is Josh's last
year.
Somewhere in this paper you'll
find a picture of this team and
perhaps an article about them. But,
listen that's not going to give you the
whole story. You can't believe the
times this group came back after be-
ing down a run or two or ten. They

Florida Banks Show the World They're Sound and Solid


TED CANNON AND I took a little
trip this past week end. We went to the
"ivory tower" of the Florida National
Bank organization in Jacksonville for
a day of meeting and touring the new
State bank chain headquarters there.
The Florida Bank headquarters had
all the directors and bank presidents
in the state in for a session Thursday
evening and Friday morning.
Ted and I were the only ones who
went from Port St. Joe and for a
country boy like me who rarely has
more than a couple of hundred dollars
he can call his own at any given time,
it was quite an inspiring tour.
I found out Florida Banks, even
though they are not the largest in
Florida, are not quite your small
country banks anymore. The impres-
sion their new headquarters gives is
that they are now a big time operation


with a central headquarters which
was described as one of the most
efficient and best operated in the
country and certainly the best in
Florida.
I found out they have a bank of
some $30 million worth of computers
keeping up with my $79.82 balance in
their bank. Of course there are two or
three who have larger balances than
mine to keep up with which makes the
sophisticated computer bank cost
effective.
I asked the guy who showed us
around the computer room if they had
enough hardware here to operate the
Challenger space shuttle. He assured
me they did. So, if Cape Canaveral has
another glitch in their's in trying to
get a shot ready, they might call on
FNB there in Jacksonville for a little
back-up hardware.

I NEVER SAW SO much compu-


ter hardware in all my life. Truth-
fully, I have never seen much
computer hardware at all. Certainly
nothing to compare with Florida
National's.
They showed us two floors of
computer banks in the old Florida
National Bank building, each of which
was about the size of the Commons
area at Port St. Joe High School.
Someone asked what happened if
the power went off. The guide
explained the system was actually run
by batteries, kept charged up by
Jacksonville Power and the batteries
would run the system for about 45
minutes in case of power failure. This
and back-up generators of their own
assured them of a pretty steady power
supply.
"Actually, we're in more trouble
if we have air conditioner failure", he
said.
Every bank transaction in every
Florida Bank in the state is handled


by this computer bank, the instant it is
made in each individual bank. That's
every transaction from cashing a
$10.00 check to signing a million dollar
note.
Every Florida Bank teller in the
state is connected directly to this huge
monster and everything they do, from
making change to accepting a deposit
is recorded instantly in these huge
computers.

THE NEW BANK headquarters
are filled with what was described as
works of art. There were pictures,
sculptures, porcelains, tapestries,
etc., on every floor of the building, and
it has'several floors.
I thought I was unappreciative of
works of art until I heard some of the
other presidents and directors on the
tour, expressing some of the thoughts
I was having.
Of course, I was convinced it was


high art, because one had to have a
program to explain what each one
was.
In the lobby there is a huge 30 foot
tall bronze question mark standing in
the middle. You can draw your own
conclusions about the significance of
the question mark, but there it was, in
all its bronze glory for all to see.
Actually, I think the same person
who selected the works of art designed
part of the building.
The tellers' counter was left off
the main building, I think, and they
got the whole thing built before they
realized this important function had
been left off. So, they got down the
Sears catalog and ordered one of those
curved glass solariums like one sees
on so many fast food restaurants these
days, and put it on the side for the
teller counter. They must have been in
a rush to get it put in place, too,
because they didn't grub the palmet-


tos or clear out the bushes on the spot
where the tellers' counter was locat-
ed. The bushes, palmettos and a
couple of palm trees are right there
behind the tellers inside the glass
lean-to.
Bankers eat well at these soires.
They had waiters serving trays of
boiled shrimp, a crab dish to spread
on crackers and tiny pieces of bread
and all kinds of good things to nibble
on.
They even had cucumber sand-
wiches about the size of a silver
dollar, which I didn't indulge in.
They put us all up in the new Omni
Hotel in Jacksonville, which had a
good bed, a shower which operated
and a nice TV. All a person could ask
for for $225.00 a night.
Actually, all of this is tongue-in-
cheek. I enjoyed the trip, the tour and
the vittles. If they ask me to go again,
I'm going.

Did you see that picture show call-
ed "The Natural"? Now folks, they
played some baseball in that movie.
That pretty guy was the star but I tell
you what he didn't have a bad swing.
Remember his first time up in the
"bigs"? He knocked the cover off the
ball. Everybody thought that was a
good one to see the horsehide cover
come flying off revealing the tightly
wound string underneath. Shucks,
that wasn't all that special. Back
home I didn't see a ball with a cover
on it till about the ninth grade. We just
taped up the same old balls year after
year and kept going. Our nicer balls
had white tape instead of black.
You know what I liked about "The
Natural"? The good guys won in the
end. It looked bad for Pop and the
team but old Roy, with his side
bleeding and just out of the hospital,
pulled'em through there in the end.
They don't make picture shows like
that anymore. Most of the time you
can't tell the good guys from the bad.

SHAD

PHANTRY
by Wendell Campbell



Football and Fighting
FIGHTING AIN'T WHAT it used to be, as two Alabama football
players will attest.
News reports indicate that Alabama running back, Bobby Humphrey
and defensive tackle, Joe King, were both admitted to hospitals after
separate altercations last weekend. Humphrey suffered a broken jaw
after being struck in the face with a crowbar or tire tool during a
pre-dawn fracas at a nightclub. King was shot in the back after a quarrel
at a housing project in Birmingham.
It's ironic, but just last week I wrote about the dangers of
"Honky-tonkin" and how lucky I have been to survive without serious
injury or death. Mr. Humphrey and Mr. King were not as lucky.
FIGHTING TACTICS have changed considerably since I was in
college some years ago. A football player was a respected adversary in
those days. Today, however, little is sacred, or, for that matter,
respected.
Fighters today have revived the old adage, "The bigger they are, the
harder they fall." In other words, if you are too big or too mean looking to
fight, they will take a crowbar or tire tool to you. Worse than that, they
might pull one of those things that makes a noise over here and hurts or
kills over yonder.
At best, fighting is a dangerous game. I have never known a scrapper
who has won them all, and I've know some good ones.

CHARLEY MacARTHUR was one. He was tough and fast as
lightening. His reputation, however, proceeded him. He was reportedly
.undefeated, until that sticky night in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, where he
was blind-sided (some call it a sucker-punch) and knocked as cold as a
well digger's shovel. And, to add financial injury to insult, ole Charley
Mac was hauled off to jail for littering the dance floor.
His fighting career took a nose-dive after that. It wasn't long before
his nose looked like a punching bag and his ears resembled two large,
dried prunes that had been stuck on either side of his head. His eyes
looked like two holes in the snow.
Another "Tush-hog" I knew wasn't so lucky. "Tex" thought he was a
tough:cowboy. As a matter of fact, he often carried a gun when we were in.
college.
A few years after leaving college, however, he was reportedly a little
slow on the draw and was shot dead somewhere close to- the
Texas-Arkansas line.
-+++++ .
MY INDUCTION into the fighting game taught me a lesson that still
lingers with me. One night I picked on a guy about twice my size and he
gimost beat me to death. My mother's first question, when she saw me
the next day, was, "Where's Wendell?"
Football and fighting are not compatible today. Football is much the
same, but fighting has taken a serious, deadly turn. Mr. Humphrey and
Mr. King, I believe, will tell you that.
My. theory on fighting is as follows: "When the going gets tough, the
tough get going. .as fast and as far away as possible!"

threw he and his 15-year-old grandson
into the water.
Sheriff Al Harrison said the youth
reported the boat throttle became
stuck in the full speed position and the
boat started turning in circles in the
mouth of the Florida River, where it
flows into the Apalachicola. The
grandfather tried to-make his way to
the rear of the boat and correct the
situation, when the pair was thrown
into the water.
The victim, Jonnie F. Sanders, 66,
told his grandson, Lowell Sanders,
Jr., of Milton, to swim for the shore.
The .younger Sanders said when he
looked back, his grandfather was
gone.
The youth walked the east bank
of the Apalachicola back to the county
park landing at the end of Road 22,
where he swam the river to the west
side and went for help.
Sheriff Harrison said the Search
and Rescue unit responded with nine
boats to search for the elderly
Sanders. His body was found Friday
morning at 10:15 near where the
accident happened.
The boat was found down river
later in the day with its throttle still
stuck wide open.
The Sheriff's Department, the
Search and Rescue squad, The Marine
Patrol, Liberty County Sheriff's De-
partment and Wewahitchka Police
were all involved in the search
operation.

School.


The contest, which will precede

nial Queen and four ladies for Her
Majesty's Court. The queen and her

Rushing and Wright Final Plans Revealed


Final plans for the wedding of
Linda Rushing and John Wright have
been announced. The ceremony will
take place Saturday, July 23 at 2:00
p.m. at the Oak Grove Assembly of
God Church.


All friends and relatives of the
couple are invited to attend the
wedding and reception to follow in the
church social hall. A nursery will be
provided.


The Port St. Joe Beautification
Committee met last Thursday even-
ing at First United Methodist Church
and the following matters were
reported or decided.
Emily Roche is working with
several young men hired by the City
for summer work in cleaning off lots
iri the business area that have been
eye sores but have not been cleaned
by their owners.
The front of the City Hall has been
resodded and landscaped and is now
very attractive. The work was led by
committee vice-chairperson, Emily
Roche. The City is to be commended
for taking this step.


Since several donations have been
made to the committee, it was decided
to open an account in the committee
name. Ruth Dumas was elected
treasurer. Pallas Gandy will also be
an assistant to the treasurer.
The committee reported that few
persons have asked the city to haul off
old cars and other junk.
The committee voted to prepare a
list of businesses and residences and
vacant lots that have made no effort to
comply with city ordinances and to
present this list to the city commission
and urge immediate action by the
commission.
The committee also voted to ask
that the. city mail every residence,
business, and owners of vacant lots a
letter explaining to people the city
ordinances regarding littering, junk
cars; overgrown lots, dilapidated


buildings and health hazards, and the
penalties for non-compliance with
these ordinances.
The committee commends the
city commission for its firm support
and decision to enforce these ordi-
nances with impartiality for all
citizens.
The committee voted to ask the
city to require businesses to have a
sufficient number of dumpsters -
garbage cans and to keep them from
overflowing and clean up around
them.
The committee commends The
Star for its excellent coverage of
beautification efforts in the city. The
photos of problem areas help remind
us the problems of cleaning up, and
beautifying Port St. Joe are great but
not insurmountable if we all cooperate
and work together.

Parker team 11 to 6. Ten of Parker's
runs came off of two grandslam
homeruns, and a two-run homer.
Ramsey started on the mound for

ters, but a walk and two errors loaded
the bases for Parker's big gun, Steve
Nicewonder who slapped a grandslam
homerun. The big inning didn't seem

the bottom of the first and put three
runs on the scoreboard.
Trailing 7-3 going into the bottom
of the third inning, St. Joe pushed
across six runs to take the lead 9-7. It
was a short-lived lead though, as
Parker hit another grandslam
homerun in the top of the fourth, put-
ting them up again 11-9.
Port St. Joe came back in the bot-
tom of the fourth inning scoring tree
runs. Des Baxter lead off the inning
with a single and Ramsey reached
base on a walk. Shannon Dew singled
in Baxter and Ramsey to tie the
game, and scored from third on a pass
ball for the go ahead run.
St. Joe contained the Parker of-
fense in the fifth and sixth innings,
shutting them down completely.
In the bottom of the fifth inning,
Damien Quinn reached first on a base
on balls, went to third on a single by
Ramsey. He scored on Parker's at-
tempt to throw him out as he stole
home.
Leading hitters were Adam
Taylor, Josh Colbert, Des Baxter,
Shannon Dew each with two hits, and
Kendrick Addison, Eric Ramsey and

County Extension Director
You may have noticed small,
pustule-like growths on the leaves and
stems of otherwise healthy looking
plants. Perhaps you've wondered
wvhat these strange looking, often
round shaped, formations are, what
caused them, and whether they
damage plants. These growths are
krown as galls. They're actually quite
common, and no real cause for alarm.
However, some people feel they
detract from plant appearance.
* Galls are abnormal growths that
develop on plants in response to insect
stimulation. This means that wher-
ever gall-forming insects lay eggs, or
wherever such insects larvae feed,
you're likely to find galls. They're
usually on the undersides of leaves, or
dn twigs and stems. Each gall is
characteristic of the insect that
causes it. Immature insects are often
found inside developing galls. But,
galls rarely cause serious harm to

or at least curious, about them. How
and why they're formed. My inform-

You're in good hands.


action on galls was provided in part by
Extension Entomologist Dr Don
Short, of the University of gorida's
Institute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences.
Galls are formed from plant cells.
It's believed they result from a
reaction between plant tissues and
insect eggs or larvae. The immature
insects become enclosed in the galls,
and feed only on gall tissue as they
develop. Although the most common
places for galls to form are leaves and
stems, they may also develop on
trunks, flowers, fruit, leaf shoot
terminals, petioles, and roots. As we
said, most plants aren't hurt by galls,
even if they have lots on them. Believe
it or not, some gardeners even choose
plants which are known to be
susceptible to galls, because they like
the unusual growths that form. But, if
you're not crazy about galls develop-
ing on your trees and shrubs, you may*
want to know how to prevent or
control them.
Unfortunately,. once galls form,
it's impossible to eliminate them, or
the pests inside, with insecticides. The
pests do very nicely within the
enclosed galls, where they're protect-
ed from chemical applications. Of
course, galls on leaves will drop off
when the leaves do. But, galls that
form on stems, trunks, or roots may
persist for several years. If a plant is
unhealthy, or under stress, it will be
damaged to a greater extent than a
healthy one.
You can prevent galls to some
extent by taking good cultural care
of your plants, by paying close
attention to -fertilization, irrigation,
pruning, and other general mainten-
ance. Some galls that occur on stems
and limbs can be hand picked and
destroyed. Also, several parasitic
wasps attack gall-forming insects.
These beneficial wasps are active in
late spring or early summer. You
might want to avoid using pesticides
during these months.
Galls form on a wide variety of
plants but especially on oaks. Some
of the insects that cause galls are
aphids, ohylloxera, midges or gall
gnats, pshllids and cynpids or gall
wasts. Over 750 species of cinipids
alone are found in the United States
and Canada. Of these, about 80
percent produce galls specifically on
oaks.
As you can, see, there's, really not
much you can do about them
especially if you have a lot of oaks on
your property. Of course, you can
avoid killing beneficial wasps, pick
the galls, and give your ornamentals
good care. But, otherwise, we suggest
you relax and take comfort in the
knowledge that galls are not serious
threats to your prized landscape
plants.

Florida Power Cutting

Rates In October Bills
Florida Power Corporation is seeking the second reduction in four
months in the fuel charge portion of electricity rates. This latest
reduction would mean a $1.05 decrease in the typical monthly bill.
The decrease, which must be approved by the Florida Public Service
Commission, would lower the 1,000 kilowatt-hour residential bill from the
current $66.80 to $65.75.
This new reduction would become effective with October bills. A $3.02
drop in the fuel charge took effect at the start of this month.
Continued strong performance from the nuclear plant at Crystal
River and oil prices which have been lower than forecast account for both
of the decreases.
The four million people served by Florida Power already pay some of
the lowest electric rates in Florida. Elsewhere in the state, ninety percent
of the utility customers not served by Florida Power pay higher prices.

attend the opening.
All senior citizens over the age of
60, or those who are married with a

committee salutes the volunteers and
businesses who donated goods, pur-
chased advertisement, or provided
assistance in one form or another
toward this year's festival. The

Rev. Braden

Speaks to

Kiwanians

Kiwanian Rev. Elmer Braden
surprised his club members Tuesday,
with his dexterity at the drawing
board, as he presented an inspiration
al talk and illustrated his remarks on
a large easel board drawing pad.

Rev.Braden said he had studied
the book "Being A Real Person!'
under Harry Emerson Fosdick at a
Seminary in which he was a student,
and gave a synopsis of the book, along
with his owh illustrations Tuesday.

Braden said all humans are
constantly bothered with in-fighting
by their several selves. "There is our
anger person, love person, curiosity
person, all striving for control at
times", Braden said. He pointed out
the ultimate point made in Fosdick'
course was that a person should learn
to maintain self control no matter
which person was struggling to gain
.ie upper hand.
"The ultimate example forI a
Christian, of course, is to emulate the
person of Jesus Christ in our lives",
Braden said.

He pointed out that it was
unhealthy as well as distasteful to
others around us to allow some of our
attributes, such as expression of
anger, to gain the upper hand in our
lives.

Florida Gets Grant to Address


Areas of Elderly Mental Health


The Department of Health and
Rehabilitative Services (HRS) was
recently awarded a $150,000 Adminis-
tration on Aging federal grant which
will enhance Florida's ability to
address and solve mental health
problems of the elderly.
"Senior citizens are a valuable
and treasured resource," said HRS
Secretary Gregory L. Coler. "We are
gratified for the opportunity to fund a
program that will touch and enrich so
many of them. The grant is also
, important because it rewards Flor-
ida's commitment to the development
of meaningful elderly programs."
The grant will be administered by
the HRS offices of Aging and Adult
Services and Alcohol, Drug Abuse and
Mental Health.
In a society fixated on youth, the
elderly have had to deal not only with
the uncertainties of old age, but also
with social misconceptions about
aging and the low priority usually
accorded elderly concerns.
But the tide may be changing.
"Baby boomers" are getting older
and senior citizens are living longer
resulting in- a more concentrated
focus on issues affecting this group.
While most older Americans are
psychologically healthy, a growing
number of them experience mental
health problems. In many cases, these
problems are precipitated by situ-
ational stressors such as death of ,a
loved one, loss of income and failing
health.
Many older persons are reluctant
1to seek help because of the stigma
attached to mental illness and the
desire to appear self-sufficient.
.hThe cornerstone of this grant is
the desire' to optimize, independent
and meaningful lifestyles among
senior citizens. The grant is designed
to improve mental health among the
elderly by helping them and their
families to: identify signs and symp-
toms of depression, stress and drug
misuse; be informed about where to'
turn for assistance; and be more
accepting of mental health services.
A three-pronged approach will be
utilized consisting oT a statewide
media campaign, the sponsoring of
educational conferences for service
providers to the elderly, and the ,
development of training packages for
Adult Congregate Living Facility
operators and Adult Foster Home
sponsors since many residents of
these facilities are in need of mental
health services..
The designation of May as both
"Older American" and "Mental
Health" months, and the message,
"Older Americans, They've Got a Lot
to Offer," illustrates the importance
placed on aging ,issues by Governor
Bob Martinez and HRS officials. This
concern and focus is no accident since
the "Sunshine State" possesses char-
acteristics which distinguish it from
most other states.
Florida is experiencing the phe-
nomenon known as the "greing of
America." It ranks first- m the
percentage of people over age 65 (19.2
percent); has experienced a 40
percent increase in the growth of the
elderly population since 1970 and
expects approximately three million
residents to be over 65 by the year
2000.
HRS Secretary Coler said with
careful planning the trauma associa-

Center on May 10, 1988 at 12:00 p.m.
He also invited everyone to attend the
Seafood Festival on May 7, 1988.
Dick Laferle, and other residents
of the Gulf Aire and Sea Shores
Subdivisions, appeared before the
Board to oppose construction of
Pelican Walk mobile home park,
being developed by Ike Duren. He
stated the plans were to build this
development across from Gulf Aire
Townhouses, between Highway 98 and
the Gulf Aire wastewater treatment
plant. He and others discussed that
the mobile home park would be an
eyesore, would reduce the value of all
property in the adjoining areas, and
would cause resale values to drop,
which would result in the assessed
value of the resold homes being less.
Ike Duren then stated that he is
here for a utility permit for a water
line and to obtain a driveway permit.
Birmingham then called upon Build-
ing Inspector Manuel for discussion of
the two issues. Branch then asked if
there are definite plans for a trailer
park in that area, and the Board
discussed that the County has no legal
control over Duren's construction of
the mobile home park. Branch stated
the Board does not have any way to
prevent this because they do not have
zoning ordinances.
Duren discussed the county's
policy for acceptance of roads, and
the citizens of Gulf Aire discussed the
roads in Phase II, stating they have
not been accepted by the County yet.
Branch reported that the roads in
Phase II had not been brought up to
specifications. Birmingham stated
that as long as Duren complies with
the rules and regulations that the
county has, there is nothing the Board
can do to stop his project.
Birmingham then discussed Dur-
en using Sea Shores Subdivision roads
for egress and ingress into his
property (destruction of roads by
heavy equipment, etc.), and stated
that the previous Board policy to
cover up driveways had been stopped
due to pending legal questions.
Attorney Gibson stated that he would
research this and report back at the
next meeting. Birmingham also sta-
ted that Duren had submitted a letter
stating he would be responsible for
any damage he might cause ont he
Sea Shores Subdivision roads, and told
Duren that the Board would give him

that the utility permit had been
disapproved by Building Inspector
Manuel. Mahuel then discussed that
Mr. Costin and Mr. Parker had agreed
to pay for road maintenance on the
Sea Shores roads for one year, and if
anything happens, it will be hard to

withdrew his request for a variance,
stating he would put. the lines on his
property. Manuel reported that Dur-
en's contractor does, not have the
proper license, and Birmingham
stated Duren would have to meet all
the necessary requirements. The
Chairman then directed Duren to
reapply with the Building Inspector
for a utility permit on his property,
and stated that if he meets all the
requirements, there should be no
problem. The motion concerning the
driveway permit passed unanimous-
ly.
The citizens from Gulf Aire and
Sea Shores Subdivisions questioned
the Board concerning future zoning.
Wells reported that the State has
mandated that the new Comprehen-
sive Plan be adopted in Gulf County
by January 1, 1990, and zoning must
be in effect by January 1, 1991. He
stated the comprehensive plan must
go through a public hearing process
for public input and comment.
After further discussion about
zoning, the citizens questioned the
Board about what needs to be done to
the roads in Gulf Aire Phase II in
order for them to be accepted. Road
Superintendent Lester reported that
drainage is the main problem. The
houses are built close to the ditches,
and the ditches are about six feet
deep, therefore there is no way for
them to be maintained. Birmingham
requested Road Superintendent Les-
ter write a letter stating what has to
be done to bring these roads up to
specifications, and give it to Wells to
mail to the attending residents.
Birmingham asked the citizens to
provide their name and address to
Wells during the break. Money stated
that he opposes the trailer park.
The meeting recessed for a short
break at 7:40 p.m. and reconvened at
7:55 p.m.
Carolyn Summers, resident of
White City, appeared before the
Board to discuss a problem with
children swimming in the boat basin
at the White City park, which
endangers their lives, and also
discussed big boats being "tied-up" at
hte park, and asked what the Board
could do. Peters moved the Board
place "No Swimming" signs at the
entrance of the park, and Money
seconded the motion. Branch then
amended the motion to include
placing signs throughout the entire
park, as well as at the entrance, and
Peters seconded the amended motion.
Upon vote, the motion and amended
motion passed unanimously. The
Board directed Mosquito Control
Director Graves to install the signs
throughout the entire park, and
directed Wells to write a memoran-
dum to the Sheriff, informing him that
these signs are being posted.
Building Inspector Manuel thank-
ed the Board for allowing him to
attend the school in Houston last
week, stating that it was very
enlightening.
Lester reported that the man who
bought the old batteries from the
Road Department had contacted him
concerning their scrap material and
junk, requesting they allow him to sell
the scrap for them and split the
proceeds. Upon motion by Peters,

vote, the Board agreed for the Road
Department to sell their scrap.
Road Superintendent Lester re-
ported that the Board could purchase
sand from the pit at Stonemill Creek
for $100.00 per acre for five years.
Upon motion by Money, second by
Branch, and unanimous vote, the
Board.approved working out a written
agreement to purchase sand from the
Stonemill Creek sand pit. Birming-
ham stated to be sure we get a new,
updated agreement and give it to
Wells to put on record. Lester also
reported that the Board's old agree-
ment with Neal Land & Timber had


ended in 1984, but the Road Depart-
ment had been unaware of this and
has still been getting sand from the
lola pit. He stated that they told him
they would sign another five year
contract with the Board, but they
would have only one more year on that
contract. Lester requested the Board
pay them $2,000.00 for the sand that
as been taken since 1984, and close
the deal with them. Branch moved the
Board accept Lester's request, and
Money seconded the motion. The
motion passed with the following vote.
Birmingham, Branch and Money
voted yes. Peters voted no. Birming-
ham directed Lester to pay Neal Land
& Timber $2,000.00, and let them know
that the Board does not wish to
purchase any more sand from them.
Mosquito Control Director Graves
reported the City of Port St. Joe is
planning to extend their sewer lines
down 10th St., -and requested the Board
allow the Mosquito Control Depart-
ment to connect to this system. Upon
motion by Branch, second by Peters,
and unanimous vote, the Board
approved Graves' request.
Graves reported the committee
appointed concerning the Buckhorn
Landfill has agreed and recommends
the Board close and lock the landfill
gates when there is no attendant
available, effective dne 1, 1988. They
also recommended posting signs
including days and times the gates
will be open. Money moved the Board
accept the recommendation of the
committee, and Peters seconded the
motion. Graves then reported on the
times the attendant will be at the
landfill. Money and Birmingham
discussed the need for Mosquito
Control Director Graves to figure the
salary of an attendant into his


would follow in doing so. Upon motion
by Money, second by Peters, and
unanimous vote, the Board agreed to
allow General Chemical Corpor-'
ation's request, and directed Wells
notifying them in writing of the
Board's decision.
Wells reported he has received
the contract concerning the Job
Training Partnership Act, and re-
quested the Board allow him to apply
for workers for the Road Department,
Mosquito Control Department, and
the Courthouse. Upon motion by
Peters, second by Money, and unani-
mous vote, the Board approved the
request of Wells. Birmingham re-
quested Wells get as many workers as
possible.
Wells requested the Board's per-
mission to attend the 1988 Hurricane
Conference in Tampa on June 1-3.
Peters moved the Board allow Wells,
Money, and himself to attend the
Hurricane Conference at the County's
expense. Money seconded the motion,
stating he is not sure if he can attend,
but would like to. Birmingham stated
this is supposed to be a bad year for
hurricanes, and we need to know all
that we can. Branch discussed travel
expenses not being budgeted for the
Commissioners, and stated that in the
past the Commissioners' travel ex-
penses have been paid out of their
salaries. After further discussion, the
motion passed with the following vote.
Birmingham, Money and Peters voted
yes. Branch voted no, stating he feels
the travel expense for the Commis-
sioners should come out of their
salaries.
Wells reported that he has con-
tacted the engineer for Florida Power
Corp., and they have scaled out the
needs of the Courthouse, and have


preliminary budget. Branch stated
that there are decisions concerning
this landfill that are going to have to
be made soon, and an attendant will
not solve all of the problems.
Birmingham stated the Board has to
take one step at a time. Branch also
recommended the Board send letter
to the Department of Environmental
Regulation, informing them of the
Board's intentions for handling this
matter. Upon vote, the motion passed
unanimously, and Birmingham di-
rected Wells to write the Department
of Environmental Regulation inform-
ing them of the Board's action. The
Chairman also stated an ad needs to
be placed in the Gulf County Breeze,
and letters need to be mailed to the
City of Wewahitchka and other
garbage haulers, to inform everyone
of the Board action and times that the
gates will be open after June 1, 1988.
He also stated that keys will be made
available for the City of Wewahitchka.
Ralph Rish, of Baskerville-Dono-
van Engineers, presented change
order no. 1, in the amount of
$96,300.00, which brings the base bid
for this project down to $248,695.40.
Peters moved the Board approve this
change order. Money seconded the
motion, and it passed with the
following vote. Birmingham, Money
and Peters voted yes. Branch voted
no. Rish also reported that the City of
Wewahitchka has not received their
$25,000.00 from the County for their
road paving projects, but they wanted
to leave it in with the Board's original
contract. He stated they plan to pave
West 4th St., Harden Cir. and as much
of Pine St. as possible.
Wells discussed a request, from
General Chemical Corporation, to put
a monitor well on the courthouse
property, stating they had also
included a list of guidelines they


located some prospective generators
that might be appropriate. He stated
that he does not have any prices yet,
but does know that they need one that
is approximately 150,000 to 200,000
watts. He also stated that he might go
to Fort Myers, if time permits while
he is at the Hurricane Conference,
since this is where five of the
prospective generators are located.
Wells reported that the outside
lights have been installed on the West
side of the Courthouse.
Lister discussed an invoice that
the Sheriff's Department had re-
ceived for a pregnancy test performed
on inmate Darlene Cherry, stating the
Sheriff had refused to okay the bill
because Ms. Cherry had been sent to
the doctor for a foot problem. The
Board directed the Clerk to write to
Karen S. Jones, D.O., informaing her
that the Board is not responsible for
payment of this type of service.
Lister discussed a request from
Joe Bearden, Maintenance Manager,
for the Board to transfer a typewriter,
property No. 60-30, from the inventory
of Courtroom & Accessories to the
Highland View Volunteer Fire De-
partment. Upon motion by Peters,
second by Branch, and unanimous
vote, the Board approved Bearden's
request.
Lister discussed a request from
Joe Bearden, Maintenance Manager,
for the Board to transfer a Steelcase
desk, property no. 140-36, from the
inventory of the Circuit Judge to the
Clerk. Upon motion by Peters, second
by Money, and unanimous vote, the
Board approved Bearden's request.
Lister presented two invoices
from Baskerville-Donovan Engineers,
one for the 1988 Roadway Resurfacing
Program in the amount of $3,550.00,
and the second one for the Gulf County
Comprehensive Plan in the amount of


$3,525.00, stating Admin. Asst. Wells
had approved these invoices. Peters
moved the Board pay these invoices,
and Money seconded the motion.
Wells reported he did not approve
invoice no. 1, because he has no
jurisdiction over the Resurfacing
Program invoice, only the one for the
Comprehensive Plan. Upon inquiry by
Peters, Ralph Rish reported that he
has no objections to invoice no. 1,
stating it is five percent of the total
construction costs, plus the direct
expenses. Upon vote, the motion
passed unanimously.
Lister presented an invoice from
the Florida League of Cities, in the
amount of $2,314.00, for the final audit
billing for liability insurance for
Fiscal Year 1986-87. Money moved the
Board pay this invoice. Upon inquiry
by Birmingham, Wells stated that the
Board is required to pay this invoice.
Peters seconded the motion, and it
passed unanimously.
Upon inquiry by Branch concern-
ing Lester's findings upon inspection
of the alley which William and Eula
Kuyper wanted closed, Lester report-
ed the alley is not clear, and does not
appear to be in use. He also stated that
is might be used in the future for
sewer lines, etc. Branch stated he just
wanted to know if the alley is being
used, or if they just wanted the
additional land.
Branch requested the Board write
the Department of Corrections and
the Department of Environmental
Regulation, informing them that
Douglas C. Birmingham is the Chair-
man now, because he is still getting
correspondence addressing him as
Chairman. Lister reported that his
office has sent letters to all the State
agencies, informing them of this.
Branch requested the Clerk write
these two agencies again.
Branch reported that he has been
contacted by Mike Burkett, a resident
of Simmons Bayou, concerning the
possibility of having a Mosquito
Control ditch in his area. Branch
stated he has been out there twice,
even though it is Money's district.
Money reported that Burkett had
mentioned this to him during the time
when the County was piping the ditch.
Branch requested Mosquito Control
Director Graves check to see if it is
possible to have a Mosquito Control
ditch in that area. Money stated that
he had told Burkett that the County
would need an easement for 10 or 12
feet, for maintenance of the ditch. The
Board directed Graves to check into
this and inform either Branch or
Money of his findings.
Branch presented the original
contract for the Ambulance Agree-
ment with Gulf Pines Hospital, and
stated that if it is satisfactory with the
other party, it will go into effect on
October 1, 1989. Branch moved the
Board allow the Chairman to execute
this Ambulance Agreement with Gulf
Pines Hospital for South Gulf County.
Peters seconded the motion for
discussion. Peters then stated he feels
it would be inappropriate for the
Chairman to execute the agreement
before all of the commissioners have a
chance to read and study it in detail,
and he withdrew his second. Branch
then withdrew his motion, stating that
the Board is way behind in signing an
agreement with the hospital, but he
feels the whole Board does need to be
satisfied with it. Birmingham stated
he has no problem with accepting the
agreement at this time, if he wants to
make it a motion. Birmingham then
directed the Clerk to provide copies of
the contract for all members of the
Board tonight. Branch requested the
Chairman make sure the contract is
placed in the next Board agenda.
Birmingham then stated that he
respects the other Commissioners
wanting to study the contract, but at
the same time, he did sppoint a
committee to work up a suitable


contract and present it to the Board
for approval, that is why he would
support it.
Branch discussed a letter from
the Port St. Joe Port Authority
requesting the Board send a letter to
the U.S. Coast Guard, supporting the
permit application to replace the
bridge in Highland View, and reported
that the letter has to reach them by
April 28, 1988. Upon motion by
Branch, second by Peters, and
unanimous vote, the Board agreed to
write the U.S. Coast Guard, and send
the letter Express Mail. The Board
directed Clerk Lister to take care of
Writing and mailing this letter.
Branch discussed a letter from
Gene Raffield, requesting the Board
approve a moratorium for him, and
make this recommendation to Charles
Blume, of the Apalachee Regional
Planning Council. Branch moved the
Board grant Raffield's request, Mon-
ey seconded the motion, and it passed
unanimously. The Board directed
Lister to write this letter to Blume.
Upon inquiry by Branch, Building
Inspector Manuel reported that the
County had incorporated with the City
of Port St. Joe in the house numbering
system.
Branch reported that the City of
Port St. Joe told him they appreciate
the money the County gave them for
road paving projects, but it did not
quite cover all their needs, and they
would appreciate any extra funds that
the County might have.
Peters thanked Manuel for the
work he has done on this system, and
stated that he appreciates the fact
that he hired blacks, whites, women
and even handicapped workers this
means a lot to him.
Upon inquiry by Peters, Wells
reported that he has not heard
anything tus far concerning the septic
tanks at the 5-acre Farm area. He
stated that he contacted Mr. Kent, and
Mr. Kent contacted the State, but has
obviously not heard anything yet,
because he has not reported back.
Peters moved the Board adopt a
letter as part of their personnel policy,
and Money seconded the motion.
Branch asked the two Department
heads for their opinions concerning
this letter. Mosquito Control Director
Graves discussed putting a man in a
position, and paying him for that
position, even if he is just learning it.
Birmingham stated that this letter
pertains to temporary position chan-
ges only. After further discussion
about pay rates, etc., the motion
passed unanimously. A copy of the
letter is on file in the Clerk's office.,
Peters requested the Board place
a letter concerning the April 12, 1988
safety meeting attendance in the
minutes for future reference. A copy
of the letter is on file in the Clerk's
office.
Peters requested the Clerk pro-
vide a copy of the letter concerning
temporary transfers to all County
employees so that they will be notified
of the Board's new policy.
Peters reported that the Florida
Game and Fresh Water Fish Commis-
sion is in the process of making it a
requirement for all new applicants for
a hunting license to take a hunter
education course, arid he is in favor of'
this, as he has taken the course
himself. Peters then moved the Board
write the Florida Game and Fresh
Water Fish Commission, in support of
this action. Money seconded the
motion for discussion. Upon inquiry
by Money, Peters stated that this is
now a law in Georgia, and that it is at
no cost to the applicant. Branch stated
that he would like to have something
in writing because he is very skeptical
of anything the Game and Fish
Commission is doing. Peters stated he
supports this because of the safety
precautions. Branch stated he sup-
ports the program, but wishes an-
other agency was backing it. The
motion failed with the following vote.


Birmingham, Branch and Money'
voted no. Peters voted yes. Birming-
ham stated he voted no because he
would also like to see the actual
legislation, not because he would also
like to see the actual legislation, not
because he opposes the program.
Peters stated he supported this
because he has taken the course and it
is a good safety measure.
Money reported that Rudy Pippin;
had contacted him about the pipe
under his driveway is caving in, and
stated that he told Pippin that if he
purchases the pipe, the County will
install it for him. Money requested
Lester look into this matter.
Money reported he has contacted:
3 people concerning updating the
system in Oak Grove, and two of those
had stated that they would like the:
system to be left as it is. He also stated
that is not very many to have
contacted, and requested more time
to do further research. Branch also
reported that most of the people he
had contacted in Highland View
wanted their system left as it is.
Peters objected to this, stating it
would prevent a unified system.
Money reported that he and Mr.
Burgess had found a good location for
an exit from the beach at Cape San
Blas. He stated that Wells has.
contacted a man at Eglin, whom
Burgess had recommended, and that
they are still working on obtaining
property to be used as an exit from the
beach. He also reported that he will
get Lester to go with him to inspect
the area, stating there is an existing
road there.
Birmingham reported that the
Homebuilders Assn. is having a
meeting on April 28, 1988 at 7:00 p.m.
at the Country Club and they have
invited the Board to attend. He also
reported that Wells will be speaking.
Birmingham reported that Donna
Drew, at the Gulf County Health
Department, has asked that each
Commissioner come by her office to
discuss the Primary Health Care Plan
that the Board has approved. He
reported that the State has appropri-
ated a reasonable sum of money to
establish the primary care facility,
and requested each Commissioner to
stop by to see her within the next two
or three days.
Birmingham reported that the
Soil Conservation Service is coming to
Gulf Copnty to take soil maps, and
they expect to be here for 12 to 18
months. He stated that they do this
free of charge, but they need office
space, and he had told them that there
will be space in the old courthouse
after July 1. He stated that if anyone is
interested or knows of office space
available for them to use, there will
probably be a formal request from
them at the next meeting.
Birmingham stated that he still
has not heard anything about the
Department's intentions concerning
their lease at the old Courthouse, and
has no recommendation at this time.
Birmingham requested the Board
allow Wells to write Mr. Gertrude
Guilford, stating that the Board has
received her petition and taken it
under advisement, and also to allow
Wells or Core to research the public
records to see if there is a deed, to see
if the road was ever turned over to the
County, and to see who owns the
property on each side of the road,
before the Board agrees to hold a
public hearing to close the road. The
Board had no objections.
Money reported that he had been
contacted by citizens wanting to start
renovation of the old Courthouse in
Wewahitchka. The Board directed
Wells to write U.S. Representative
Bill Grant, requesting a new grant
application for this project. Chairman
Birmingham then discussed prior
attempts to receive grant funds.
There being no further business,
the meeting did then adjourn.
