The Political Scene


James F. Whitfield Qualifies

For District One Position


Budget Prospects Are



Not A Pretty Picture


First Glance Shows Over A $1 Million

Increase but There Are Reductions Coming


,'I W. Tiii 'WI The Gulf County Commission
S started looking at its fiscal 1988-89
i, 1 budget Thursday of last week and
1 after three work shop meetings in less
T 'than a week, the prospects don't
S present a very pretty picture.
Between the expenses to meet
4 'state Department of Environmental
Regulation requirements for disposal
ot sohl id waste and replacement of some
old:and worn out heavy equipment in
S, 'the county road department, original
S,' talking" figures had ballooned to
i $1,000,032 over last year's budget. The
ll primary culprit was the proper
disposal of solid waste which was
Estimated to require an extra $800,000
Sin next year's budget.
After sessions Thursday, Monday
: ad Tuesday of this week, this figure
e collected in south Gulf County is has been whittled down considerably,
transferred. to Bay County. 'but still stands at almost unbelievable



Petition Attracts 232


A recall petition,recently initiated
by a former Mexico Beach Mayor,
Bob Hale, to recall current Commis-
sioner, Bill Horn, has been turned
over to the Mexico Beach City Clerk,
Mrs. Pat Hutchinson. for processing.
Hale said he turned his petitions
over to Mrs. Hutchinson Friday of last
week. 'Mrs. Hutchinson will send the
petitions to Bay County Supervisor of
Elections, Gladys Chapman, Monday,
to have the names verified as legally
registered voters in Bay County and
Mexico Beach.
Hale said the petitions contained
232 names, asking for the recall of


Commissioner Horn. "We only needed
100 names, but we felt with collecting
the number of names- we did, it would
give us a feeling of the people of
Mexico Beach and would also give us
a sufficient number of names to meet
legal requirements if there should be
a question about any of the signers",
Hale said.
"We could have collected more
names, but stopped at the 232 number
because it was just over half the
highest number of votes ever record-
ed in a Mexico Beach election", Hale
said.
Horn was elected with 203 votes of


amount. To top it all off, these figures
may be woefully inadequate after Bay
County gets through pricing the use of
its incinerator to dispose of Gulf
County solid waste for next year.
DISPOSAL EXPENSIVE
So far this fiscal year, Gulf
County has spent $73,000 since De-
cember in incinerator fees just to burn
what is collected at the solid waste
compactor on Industrial Road near
Basic, Inc.
The county was forced into going
to the incinerator by DER when they
ordered the only remaining landfill
site at Buckhorn shut down because it
failed to comply with DER rules and
regulations. All solid waste in the
northern portion of Gulf county is still
going to the Buckhorn site, but not for
very long.
Recently, the DER ordered Gulf



Signers
303 total votes cast in his race.
Hale said the recall process is a
long drawn-out affair which takes
several months to resolve. "We had
hoped to have the preliminaries
finished by the general election date
in November, so we could vote on that
day, but it seems unlikely now we will
have the steps all finished by that
time", Hale said.
Horn has been a member of the
Mexico Beach City Commission for a
little more than a year. His term-his
first-runs to December, 1989.
Hale and his group are attempting

Now, There's 30 In the Pack!


As expected, there was very little
action in qualifying to seek public
office in Gulf County after the initial
rush the first of the week last week.
According to Elections Supervisor,
Cora Sue Robinson, only two more


candidates paid their fees to compete
for office between Wednesday and the
close of the qualification period
last Friday at noon.
The District Five County Com-
mission race picked up another


Heavy Thunder Storms Bring

Slight Damage; Welcome Rain


Heavy thunder storms have
slashed across the Gulf County area
for the past two mornings, bringing
some property damage along with
the needed rainfall.
The heaviest storm struck Tues-
day morning about daylight, bring-
heavy winds and possibly some
small twisters along with the heavy
lightning, thunder and rainfall.
Sheriff Al Harrison said a small
twister "came in low" at Dalkeith
and damaged a mobile home there.
"The home wasn't blown over, but a
portion of a tree was blown over onto
the home, causing damages", the
Sheriff said. His department said


they had received no reports of other
damages from either storm.
Here in Port St. Joe, the gusty
winds which accompanied Tuesday's
storm blew a limb across a Florida
Power Corporation feeder line, caus-
ing it to fall and disrupted power
from Fifth Street south to Indian
Pass.
Transmission line felled by the
storm was located in the Hunter
Circle area and connected the south
end of the county with the sub-station
here in Port St. Joe.
"The damage was really no
problem; we needed the rain too
much to complain", Port St. Joe
Police Chief Carl Richter said.


candidate, when Al Ray paid his fees
Friday morning and became an
official candidate. Ray had been
expected to qualify as he had
announced earlier he would be a
candidate.
Debra Wood announced she would
be a candidate and paid her qualifica-
tion fee just before the deadline
Friday, to round out a field of four
hopefuls in the District Three School
Board race.
Robinson began preparing the
ballot this week, with absentee ballots
scheduled to be available Monday,
August 1. "Those who wish to send
absentee ballots overseas need to get
them in the mail as soon as possible to
insure them being returned by
election day", Robinson said!
Three of the announced candi-
dates will not be on the September or
October primary ballots, according to
Robinson. The names of Charles
Hood, Republican candidate in County
Commission District One and inde-
pendents Jef Gardner and Marion
Hough, both candidates in County
Commission District Three, will not
be seen until the November election.


County to shut down the Buckhorn
operation completely which leaves the
county with few options to dispose of
solid waste.
The new budget proposal includes
money to apply for a new landfill to
replace Buckhorn, but tentative fig-
ures are such an operation will cost
the county $2.5 million over a five year
period. Educated guesstimates are
that it will cost $900,000 to get another
landfill site into operation in the first
year.
Commission Chairman Doug Bir-
mingham said, "$300,000 of that
money is just for engineering to DER
specifications for digging a big hole in
the ground and placing a plastic liner
inside. I nearly had a heart attack
when I heard that figure!" Birming-
ham said.
Commissioners will be meeting
with Bay County officials again this
week in an attempt to work out a price
for handling Gulf's solid waste.
Presently, the county is paying
$15.00 a ton for what is already being
sent to the incinerator. Some Bay
County officials are repeating figures
in the $25.00 a ton bracket for the new
contract. "We don't really know what
we'll be asked to pay. It's all a
guessing game right now and it's hard
to set a budget if you have to guess at
something of this magnitude", Bir-
mingham said.
EQUIPMENT PURCHASES
The other big ticket item is new
machinery for the road department.
Delays in replacing some of the older
equipment to meet budget crisis of the
past has made the purchase almost a
must this year. The county is talking
about purchases of a new ditch
digging machine, a new road grader
and replacing two dump trucks. .
The tentative price tag for all of
this is around $220,000, but already
this has been hacked to a proposed
$100,000. Tuesday the Commission
considered requesting plans for de-
layed payment purchase plans, such
as lease purchase.
BIG TICKET ITEMS
Commission Clerk, Benny Lister
said the initial request figures showed
an increase of $1,131,264 in requests
which amounted to $10,000 or more.
"There were several smaller requests
which all amounted to quite a sum of
money". By Tuesday of this week,
however, this increase had just about
been cut in half, but there is no
indication this will be enough money
to operate on next year.
The proposed increase still does
not include any pay increases for
county employees.
"Actually, other than the solid
waste and road department expendi-
tures, there is very little increase in
the budget proposal for the coming
year. Increased values in taxable
property being placed on the rolls for
the first time would probably take
care of most if not all of the proposed
expenditures if it were not for the solid
(Continued on Page 3)


James F. "Frank" Whitfield, 53,
qualified last week to be a candidate
y to the office of Gulf County Commis-
sion for District 1. He is a lifelong
resident of District 1, and a veteran of
4/2 years with the United States Air
Force. Whitfield and son, Mike own
and operate Whit-Co Electric, Inc. He
has been married to the former Sarah
Alice Jordan of Charleston, S.C. for 32
years. They have one son, Mike and
a granddaughter, Megan Michelle,
daughter of Mike and the former
LaDonna Tucker.
Whitfield says he will use the
working man, and common sense
approach. Whitfield pledges to the
voters of District 1 to be available in


person or by phone. He says he will
have a District 1 telephone number
that can be called 24 hours a day. He
plans to reduce as much bureaucracy
and waste in the county as humanly
possible and to keep voters of District
1 informed.
"The only support I have is
friends, and the working men and
women of Dsitrict 1, that will give
their time and effort. I will consider it
an honor to serve District 1. With your
support and continued support, I will
represent you to the best of my ability,
always remembering you, the people
who gave me the opportunity to stand
up for you," he said.


Debra Wood School Board

Candidate from District Three


Debra Wood of St. Joe Beach has
announced her candidacy for School
Board member in District 3.
Debra is 31 years old and is
married to Raymond Wood. They
have two daughters, Christy and
Misty, who are nine years old and
attend Highland View Elementary.
Debra is the daughter of the late
Robert Lee and Christine Lee of
Vernon. She attended Highland View
Elementary and graduated from Port


St. Joe High in 1975.

"I have two children in the Gulf
County School System and I am
willing to serve full-time as a school
board member to ensure that our
children's future is promising with a
good education. I feel our children are
our first priority and as parents we
need to take a stand for our children.
Their education is their most import-
ant asset," she said.

Downtown On A



Growing Spree

There was a time, there, when it seemed as if the business
community of Port St. Joe was beginning to get sort of drab. It
appeared to be going downhill from the standpoint of numbers
and variety and those which were constant seemed to be getting
a little drab.
It wasn't really an adventure to come downtown and just
look around because it was the same old thing to look at for a
while there.
Things are changing.
We don't know whether or not it is a spin-off from the
beautification committee or whether we're just going through
one of our business community "phases", but things are
definitely changing for the better.
There have been times in the past when there wasn't a
building-empty on Reid Avenue or the adjacent streets, where
business houses stand. Then there were times when one could
find an empty building or two in most any block you would look.
This situation has cycled several times during the 35 years we
have been watching it.
Now, we're in one of those growing cycles after an admitted
-" .; trip down into the doldrums for a period of time.
One can see new businesses going into the empty buildings
every month now. For two years, a building on Reid Avenue
stood empty which burned in the middle of the night a while
back. Recently, the owner started fixing it up for a possible
tenant to rent and he didn't even get it finished before someone
was moving in with a sewing and knitting supplies business.
Danley had hardly vacated their building at the corner of
Reid Avenue and Fourth Street, when a mill supply firm said it
was going to open a store here in the building.
Citizens Federal is doubling its size and performing a face
lift of the old section of their building as well. A new restaurant
opened in the building at the corner of Highway 98 and Fourth
Street, bringing to three the number of new businesses to open
within the past three months.
Three new businesses and a couple of renovations may not
sound like much to you, but to a small town like Port St. Joe
that's a definite "boom" atmosphere, and we're glad to see it.



Smell A Football?

The summer vacation time is almost over for our teen
agers and children. In just a couple days more than three weeks
from now, they will be going back to school and it will be the
first sign of the coming of fall.
With the coming of fall, sports fans begin to smell football
in the air. Actually, what they smell may be the collective
armpits of the many who are sweating and straining to get into
shape to play football. There is definitely a smell in the air,
however.
That's why we grasped the off-hand remarks of coach Phil
Lanford last week that we would see better results from our
^..,ootbahL.-program than we have in the past couple of.year.s:
We all knew the Sharks were in a re-building phase after an
unfortunate experience in the year they should have repeated
as state champions, so we have all been patient. True, the
attendance at games hasn't been what it would be if the team
was winning every Friday night, but the faithful stuck it out and
realized miracles couldn't be accomplished on our budget.
The faithful are always there in Port St. Joe, however. It
was even so. while Port St. Joe's entry in the district Dixie Youth
league was running over those Bay County teams for the past
two weeks. The Port St. Joe team had only one defeat in the
entire tournament, losing 10-6 to Mid City on one of "those
nights". The team came right back to beat Parker for the
tournament championship and the opportunity to represent the
district in the state tournament which begins on August 1.
It was the first time Port St. Joe had earned a berth on the
state tournament since the Dixie Youth movement became the
dominant youth baseball organization in these parts 15 years
ago.
The faithful followers will be there you can bet on it.
Win, lose or draw.

show and give some Little Beaver talk
to Mom, "Where's food?" "Hungry,
eat now," "Get lead out, paleface."
"You little Indians better be just a
tad more polite or I'll boil your
tailfeathers." Mom kinda put a
damper on our Little Beaver game.
The first Little Beaver that I
remember was played by Tommy
Cook. This was way back when Don
"Red" Barry was playing the part of
Red Ryder. We used to wonder why
the name Red Ryder. Why not Blue
Ryder or Purple Ryder or ... well,
you get the idea. We figured that this
Barry fellow's hair musta been red.
Of course that was a little hard to
discern we're just a little too low
budget here for that new technicolor
stuff.
Not long after the Red Ryder
series got going Bobby Blake replaced
Tommy Cook as the new Little
Beaver. Bobby talked more than
'Tommy. As a matter of fact Little
Beaver was now allowed a whole
sentence. Still, action not talk, was the
order of the day. You remember that
episode where Bad Bob had Red
SRyder tied up? Little Beaver, without
a sound, slipped in at night while the
oiutlaws were asleep and cut his friend
loose. Boys, Bad Bob paid for tangling
with Red Ryder and his little friend.
William "Wild Bill" Elliot replac-
ed Dlon Barry and Red Ryder never
missed a beat. It would always look
bad for him until the last ten minutes
'or so then he'd figure out Bad Bob's
plan and get him in the end. We
wondered about the color of "Wild
Bill's" hair but we're still talking low
budget "B" westerns here.
In 1946 when Elliot moved up to
bigger productions Allan "Rocky"
Lane became Red Ryder. I personally
didn't see how a guy playing the Red
Ryder could go any higher. Bobby
Blake remained as Little Beaver and
Bad Bob hated Rocky's Red Ryder
more than ever. We were satisfied. Of
course, we didn't know what color
Rocky's hair was.
Someone the other day mentioned
i.. Little Beaver at church. When we got
home my boys knew all about the
Beaver.
"His father's name is Ward."
"Yeah, and he is always getting
into trouble."
"He's got a brother named Wally
and a spoiled friend named Chuckle
Murdock."
"They come on the
SuperStation."
"Yeah, Dad, and there's a new
show where Beaver is all grown up."
:t took me a half an hour to ex-
plain about the real Little Beaver. I
had to dig into the closet and pull out
my genuine Red Ryder BB gun. Then
I got to tell the boys about those

S'ETAOIN SHRDLU



Opening, Closing Speeches of Convention Were


THE DEMOCRATIC Convention
is over and, like I told you, it was a big
circus, occupying prime time on
television all week long.
If you were a Democrat, you had
no choice but to watch your conven-
tion if you stuck with the major
networks. If you were a Republican,
you grumbled for a week, or maybe,
--cherish the thought-caught up on
your reading last week.
Like most conventions, this one
had something for most everybody.
If you didn't like what was going on,
you could move up the hall a bit and
something to suit you would be in full
swing. If you were watching by TV,
and things were getting boring, they
were usually perked up by the time
you got back from the bathroom or
getting a drink of water.
+++++


I DIDN'T GET TO see too much of
the convention. Actually, some of the
time when I could have been
watching the convention, I was
watching the Atlanta Braves. There.
wasn't too -much of interest there,
either.
Somehow or other I received a
complimentary issue of "Time" mag-
azine this week, and between "Time"
and my usual "Newsweek", all the
leisure gaps were filled when they
were available.
The convention lacked some of the
pizazz it used to have when Sam
Rayburn of Texas and Carl Albert of
Oklahoma were presiding in years
past.
Old sam used to bang and bang on
the podium with that huge gavel he
swung, singing out in his gravelly,
low-pitched voice, "Order! Order!
Let's clear the aisles and have
order!"


Mr. Sam usually got what,' he
wanted because he didn't proceed
with the proceedings until he had
order or the, aisles were cleared.'
+ + + ++
I HEARD TWO full speeches
during the convention. I heard Ann
Richards give the keynote address
and I heard Mike Dukakis give his
acceptance speech.
I had always read that Dukakis
was sort of an uninspiring speaker
with a ho-hum attitude.
His acceptance speech Thursday
night was anything but ho-hum 4nd
uninspiring.
Like all good candidates, Dukakis
said what we all wanted to hear
(Republicans and Democrats alike)
but the probability of seeing them
come about are not likely to material-
ize.
The convention speakers didn't do


their candidate much good.
Of course, the keynote address
was entertaining because the speaker
was entertaining in her delivery. She
had a few barbs for George Bush, but
she said them in a manner to suggest
she was poking fun. Her address was
actually entertaining.
I'm sorry I didn't get the name
of the speaker who addressed the hall
the next night. Even staunch Demo-
crats should have considered his
nasty remarks about George Bush or
anyone else, as out of place and crude
for public consumption.
That speaker did the Democrats
more harm than good.
Of course, Jesse Jackson got his
licks in. Jackson is a superb speaker
with a command of his illustrations
and homilies, but I still don't think he
is qualified to be president of the
United States.
DUKAKIS MADE A superb ac-


,ceptance speech, I thought. Some of
his points may have some of us
wondering how they are going to be
accomplished, but the objects of his
concern are the concerns of us all.
We took his reference to his
balancing the budget of Massachu-
setts for eight years in a row, with a
grain of salt. Every governor Florida
has had has done the same thing,
simply because our state constitution
requires it. The Massachusetts consti-
*tution may require the same thing.
Whether it's Dukakis or Bush who
eventually gets elected, we think we
will see an attempt at getting the
same things' accomplished.
Both parties want to put our
people to work. They both want our
economic posture stable. They both
want American industry back in
business. They both want to rid our
youth of drugs. They both want a
balance of trade.
Dukakis kept recalling the days of


By: Wesley R. Ramsey-


intertaining

Kennedy, Truman and Roosevelt. I
remember Roosevelt saying we must
help ourselves. I remember Truman
advocating hard work and I remem-
ber Kennedy saying in his inaugural
address, "Ask not what your country
can do for you. Ask what you can do
for your country'".
I never could agree with Kenne-
dy's philosophy, but this one quotation
of his should be engraved on the
entrance to the capitol building.
I couldn't help but wonder how
many of those delegates arrived in
Atlanta driving a foreign car and I
couldn't help but notice the continued
references that the country owed
some of the candidates something.
As Dukakis put it in his accept-
ance speech, he was in awe that the
son of an immigrant could be allowed
to run for president of this nation.
We ALL owe the nation. The
nation owes none of us. We need to get
about the business of paying off.

SPHANTRY
by Wendell Campbell



A College Education

SOME OF THE MOST ignorant people I know are college graduates.
Armed with a diploma, some people try to see just how stupid and
offensive they can get. I could name some names.
I graduated from the University of Southern Mississippi some years
ago and, I guess, have done my share of trying to "show my stuff! May
the records show that I have, as of right now, asked for forgiveness.
A college education is much more than "book learning", I have
found. At least it was for me. Although I feel I received a good education,
I learned much more out of the classroom than I did in it. Some of the
learning I received in college is listed below:
+4=+++-
-Frugality Even in those days of yesteryear, it was hard to get by
on $10 a month laundry money. That's what the school was allowed to give
football players for laundry money under the scholarship program.
Prices were somewhat cheaper in those days, but not that cheap.
-Date walking Date walking is fast becoming extinct. However,
date walking was in vogue when I was in college because most students
didn't have automobiles, as they do now. I not only date walked, but I
walked my dates past movies, hamburger shops and many things that
cost money because of my imposed practice of frugality.
-Borrow clothes A lesson I learned earlyin college was to get a
roommate who was about my physical size. It was easy to "borrow"
shirts, pants, shorts and undershirts when he was gone (we didn't have
co-ed dorms in those days, dadgummit!). Handkerchiefs and socks were
easy to borrow, clean or not, because you only let people see them
whenever you wanted to.
-How to hitchhike I bought my first car about one year after I
graduated from college. Before that I probably set some kind of record
hitchhiking. I also came close to death on four or five different occasions
that I can recall right now. It was probably closer to twenty.
-Shop for bargains College students with no money, especially
football players, learn how to shop for bargains. I was a master at it.
Some were adept at shopping because it cost them nothing. They were
called "shoplifters." Anyway, living on $10 a month compels one to seek
out the best bargains.
-Sharing It doesn't take long for one to learn to share while in
college, practicing frugality like I did. I was one who received more than
I had to give. So, after a trip home, where I was replenished with shaving
cream, razor blades, deodorant, socks and such, I gladly shared because
I didn't get hone that often and needed some leverage for sharing theirs
later on.
-Date rich girls It was my junior year before I learned to date rich
girls. It's easy to get places and acquire things if you date someone with a
car and money. Fortunately, rich girls, at that time, had an affinity for
football players. I dated several rich girls but, fortunately married a
pretty girl with loads of personality and charm and little money.
--Learned to lie .It didn't take long to establish myself in this
category because of my past experience. My ability, however, was honed
to a fine edge because it was vitally important when your brain is
muddled from being hit too much on the football field. Don't laugh,
former fellow students. At least I had a reason and an excuse.
SO, YOU SEE, book learning ain't the only thing. It's like my good
friend, Jim's definition of a level headed man; "A level headed man," he
says, "is a man with tobacco juice running out of both sides of his
mouth!"
Now, son, go on to college and get your education!

day. He's changed his name to Robert

few years ago. I can't remember the
name of it. But he had that white bird
named Fred. I think it was a pigeon.
He more recently played a priest in
"Helltown."
He didn't look right as a cop or a
priest. He still ought to be wearing

when Horn filed charges with the state
ethics commission against City Man-
ager, John Mclnnis; Chief of Police,
Jeff Sellers and Commissioner, Al
Cathey. The ethics commission has
since thrown out charges against
Sellers and McInnis as being com-
pletely unfounded and took under
study a claim that Cathey had voted to
change the zoning status on a building
he owned. Cathey says the commis-
sion minutes show he tried to refrain
from voting in the matter, but was
advised to cast a vote by the city
attorney and the other members of the
commission.


First Scholarship
Stephanie Price of Wewahitchka, was presented with a full scholarship to
Gulf Coast Community College Tuesday by Kiwanis Club president, Mike
McDonald. The scholarship was the first from a perpetual scholarship program
financed by the Kiwanis Club, which will fund at least one scholarship each
year. The club set up the fund of $10,000 with funds from various projects the
club has been involved in during the past three years.
Stephanie said the scholarship enables her to be a full time student at Gulf
Coast where she is seeking a degree in education.



Beach Driving


Ordinances Changed


A revised ordinance covering fees
and permits for driving on the
beaches of south Gulf County was
brought up for its final hearing
Tuesday night.
The original proposed change
was to increase the fees from $15.00 to
a $50.00 permit for those living out of
the county to secure a permit. County
residents would still have their
permits priced at $15.00.
Opposition developed to the plan
Tuesday, however, when the argu-
ment was presented that those owning
houses at the beach and paying Gulf
County taxes on their property should
be treated as residents when purchas-
ing a permit.
Commissioners Nathan Peters
and Eldridge Money made and
seconded a motion to allow property
owners to be treated as full time
residents.
Chairman Birmingham argued
they were not residents, because they
didn't get homestead exemptions on
their Gulf County property, but he lost,
his case when Peters, Money and
Traylor voted to allow the lower
charge and Branch sided with Bir-
mingham, opposing the motion.
PAY HOSPITAL BILLS
The Commission agreed to pay
$3,600.96 in hospital costs for medical
treatment of Gulf County Jail in-
mates. The county had been billed
over $8,000 for the services, but the
hospital had agreed to settle for half
the billed amount.
Administrative assistant, Larry
Wells said further investigation had
revealed one of the prisoners treated
was from the Franklin county depart-
ment, being held in the local jail, and
one prisoner had medical insurance to
cover his charges.
The Board then agreed to remove

these two charges from the total and

OTHER BUSINESS ITEMS
In other items of business Tues-
day night, the Commission:
-Agreed to proceed with secur-
ing permits for the new Beacon Hill
park, but heard objections from
Commissioner Peters against putting
county money into rest room con-
struction for the park. "The rest
rooms attract an unsavory element",
Peters said.
-Agreed to notify Multi-Vision
Cable TV they opposed the planned
rate increase for the beaches area.
-Received a letter from the
Florida DOT that gave Gulf County
permission to use property under the
proposed White City high rise bridge
as a park. Part of the right of way for
the bridge was a portion of the county
park at White City.

Of course not, unless there is no other available
doctor. They know that anyone has great difficulty
trying to be objective about their own ailments.
Sickness symptoms are most confusing, for many
diseases have similar pains or discomforts. A headache
can be the result of more than a dozen different causes.
The problem is to determine which one. When you are
sick, do what physicians do. They consult another

St. Joe I
Thirteen young boys from Port St.
Joe will take the hopes and aspira-
tions of the town with them as they
participate in the State Dixie Youth
Baseball Tournament for 10-12 year
olds. It will be the first time in over 15
years that Port St. Joe will be re-,
presented during the state finals.
The St. Joe All-Stars earned the
berth in the state finals by winning the
District 4 championship two weeks
ago. They defeated Bayou George
33-1, Highland Park 14-7, Parker 17-2
and Parker, 13-11 in the championship
game. They lost to Mid-City 10-6.
The key to the success of the St.
Joe team has been their hitting at-
tack, accumulating a .442 team bat-
ting average during the District tour-
nament. Four batters hit over .500
with Des Baxter .625, Josh Colbert
.562, Damon Quinn .500 and Kendrick
Addison .500 leading the team. Ten
players hit over .300.
Eight ball players also saw pit-
.L ching duties during the District. Shan-
non Dew, Adam Taylor, Elton Wood,
Des Baxter, Eric Ramsey, and
Damon Quinn all throw right-handed.
Southpaws are Josh Colbert and Ken-
drick Addison.

of turtles have evolved. All of these
unique marine animals are now
threatened with extinction. The Log-
ger Head sea turtle migrates to local
beaches every summer to lay her
eggs. However the number of nests
are decreasing due to human activity.
The turtles are accidently caught in
fishing nets as they make their way to
the beaches. Excessive beach use and
development threaten her as she trys
to nest. The niew hatchling turtles, are
confused by artificial lights so they
wander inland and starve or get
crushed by cars. Some fall in tire
tracks and can't climb out or are
eaten by predators.
Nesting usually occurs at night
during late June and July. The female
Logger Head flops her body on the

























Newly hatched turtles head for the
open sea.
shore, placing 200 to 350 pounds of
pressure on her lungs. She then drags
herself over the sand looking for a
suitable nesting sight. The Florida
Logger Head nesting population is
second only to that on Masirah Island,
Omahn, in the middle East.
It takes Logger Heads at least 20
years to reach maturity. They may
use more than one nesting beach
within a season. Females can lay*
from one to nine clutches of eggs per
season. Most lay only two to three.,
The average clutch size is 120 eggs,
with an incubation period of about 60
days. Usually two to three years will
elapse between a female's nesting
seasons.
It is estimated that only one in ten
thousand eggs survive to become
adult turtles. Many of the newborn
turtles are picked off by natural

American Heart
Golf Classic at
Tyndall AFB Links
Dedicated golfers in this area will
be fighting heart disease with a club
at Pelican Point Golf Course, Tyndall
Air Force Base on August 5 and 6. The
American Heart Golf Classic is the
first tournament co-sponsored by
Biddle Communications and Cellular
One. Many other community people
and businesses have joined in support
offering donations and prizes to
promote healthier hearts.
"With all the press coverage
given to cancer and other diseases,
people often forget that heart disease
is the number one killer. In fact, it's
not even a contest," says Jack Young,
Chairman of the event. "We want the
American Heart Golf Classic to bring
the message about heart disease and
how it can be prevented to our
community."
Cardiovascular disease and
stroke account for almost one million
deaths in America every year, or as
many as all other causes of death
combined.
Money raised from the Golf
Classic will be used by the American
Heart Association to fight heart
disease through research and com-
munity education programs. To sign
up call the Heart Office at 769-3070.
We're fighting for your life!


During the Current Laying Season


the St. Joseph Chelonidae Commis-
sion made up of local volunteers who
are patroling the beaches, all nesting
attempts are recorded and reported.
What can you do? Do not disturb
nesting females. Never discard any-
thing, especially plastic, in the water
as it is mistaken for food or jellyfish.
Discourage building on the coast line


and the many lights associated with
beach development. Do not buy turtle
products while in other countries.
Support the St. Joseph Chelonidae
Commission by reporting any turtle
crawls, nests, or stranded sea turtles
to the Marine Patrol, Resource Alert
Line, 1-800-342-1821, or local volunteer,

predators, such as ghost crabs, before
reaching the water. Once they are
swept out to sea, shark, bluefish and
mackerel will make a meal out of the
unsuspecting turtles.
No one knows where the young
turtles go during the first year of their
life. Scientists call this the lost year.
No one knows how long they live,
although estimates who up to fifty
years. It is believed that Logger Head
turtles develop a homing instinct to
return to their birth place to lay eggs,
as some fish do to spawn. So much is
yet to be learned about these
prehistoric creators of the sea.
Perhaps further research and help
from interested individuals can
change the uncertain future of these

Ants In Your Patch! Attracted by Stray Bits of Food Left Lying Around


by Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Director
An ant invasion is certainly no
picnic! But, picnics do attract ants.
and our homes especially areas where
food is stored, prepared, and eaten. In
addition to building ugly mounds in
our lawns, ants consume and contam-
inate unprotected food.. They often
inflict painful bites or stings;
Ants are members of the hymen-
optera order of insects which includes
bees and wasps. But unlike bees,
which make their food from nectar
and pollen, and wasps which feed
primarily on other insects, ants are
scavengers. The most common spe-
cies of ants found in Florida can be
grouped into three categories house-
infesting ants, yard-infesting ants and
carpenter ants. My information on
ants was provided by Extension
Entomologist Dr. Phil Koehler.
: Ants especially those with wings
are often confused with termites.


have wings, two pair each. But, all
four wings of an ant are much larger
than the back pair. Also, unlike broad
bodied termites, ants have a very
constricted waist like a wasp.
Ants have a life cycle similar to
many other insects. They go from
eggs, to larva, to pupae, to adult. This
cycle may take from six weeks to two
months. Ants are social insects, they
live in colonies much like bees. Most
colonies includes a queen, male ants,
and female worker ants. Colonies are
started by queens, whose prime
function is reproduction. The queen
may live for many years, and usually
is replaced by a daughter queen.
Males are produced in very old or

large colonies, and their sole function
is to mate with an unfertilized female,
after which they die. Female worker
ants construct, repair, and defend the
nest, provide food for the colony, and
take care of the young ants. These
workers seldom have wings. How-
ever, male ants have wings through-
out their lives, and queens have wings
until they mate.
Most ants are omnivorous, that is,
they'll eat nearly anything. Ants
locate food by random searching.
When one ant finds food, she informs
the other workers in the colony. The
exact method of communication is
unknown. But research has shown
that in some cases ants leave scent


trails that other ants can follow to the
food source.
Because ants are attracted by any
type of food, your best bet for
controlling them inside your home is
to keep it very clean. Store food in
airtight containers, and don't leave
scraps or dirty dishes out overnight.
While pesticides never should be used
as a substitute for poor housekeeping,
chemical control is sometime neces-
sary. You can use sprays, dust;
granules, or baits. Treat baseboards,
door and window frames crack and
crevices between walls and flooring,
and small areas where ants appear to
have trails. If the nest is located, it
also should be treated with an
insecticide.


Singing Group at Glad Tidings Church


New Covenant, a dynamic six
member music ensemble from South-
eastern College in Lakeland, will
appear at Glad Tidings Assembly of
God in Wewahitchka, Saturday and
Sunday, July 30 and 31. The Saturday
night concert will be a street concert


at the Wewahitchka State Bank
parking lot at 7:00 p.m., in case of rain
it will be held at the church. Sunday
services will be held at 10:30 a.m. and
6:00 p.m. at the church.
New Covenant's music provides
an opportunity for the ensemble and


~. *4


the sound man who accompanies the
group, to minister to people of all
ages. Last summer New Covenant
traveled for 15 weeks serving as
worship leaders and providing special
music at youth camps and churches in
the southern, northern, and central
states. Many lives were changed as a
result of New Covenant's ministry,
telling of the love and grace they have
found in Jesus Christ.
Everyone is invited to attend
these meetings.


Actually, the key to eliminating
ants is locating and destroying their
colonies. This can be a real problem
especially if they're nesting indoors,
in walls behind baseboards, and in
other hidden areas. Outdoors, ants
aren't as difficult to find. All you have
to do is look for the hill, the familiar
mound of earth which the ants bring to
the surface. For specific information
on the proper pesticides to use either
indoor or out, check with your County
Extension Office.

Change Made In Social Security Rules


What Happens to SSI Check When You Go Into the Hospital?


By: James W. Tolliver
Social Security Admin. Dist. Manager
An area that consistently causes
concern among supplemental security
income (SSI) recipients is, "What
happens to my SSI checks if I go into a
hospital, or any other institution for
that matter?" Since there were
some recent changes in this area, I
thought it would be a good time to go
over how a stay in an institution
affects SSI payments.
First, just what is an institution?
Social Security defines it as "an
establishment that makes available
some treatment or services in addi-
tion to food and shelter to four or more
persons who are not related to the
proprietor." In other words, a facility
is an institution if, in addition to food
and shelter, it provides any article or
activity which in any way benefits the
individual's physical or emotional
well being. City or county rest homes,
halfway houses, and hospitals are all
considered institutions; hotels, motels
and boardinghouses are not.
SSI payments to a recipient who
enters an institution for a stay of less
than a month are usually unaffected.
However, stays of a full calendar
month or longer may affect the
payment and, therefore, should be


reported to us.
SSI recipients usually are not
eligible for an SSI payment for any
full calendar month that they are in a
public institution. But there are some
exceptions to this rule.
For example: recipients who
enter medical treatment facilities
where Medicaid is paying more than
half the cost of their care may
continue to get payments. They may
. be eligible for up to 3 months of full
payments if:
-A physician certifies that they
are expected t6 be in the institution 90
days or less;
-They need to maintain and pay


expenses associated with their perm-
anent residence; and
-They notify us (Social Security)
ten days from the close of the month
they entered the facility.
SSI recipients also may continue
to be eligible for payments if they
enter:
-A public operated community
residence which serves no more than
16 lesidents;-
-An institution primarily to
receive education or vocational train-
ing; or
-A public emergency shelter.
(Payments are limited to six months


New Fishing Reefs Oft


The Department of Natural Re-.
sources recently announced the be-
ginning of a four month long bridges-
to-reefs project in Franklin County, a
cooperative effort of the DNR, the
Florida Department of Transporta-
tion and Florida Sea Grant which
ultimately should provide two new
productive fishing locales off the Big
Bend coast.
Work was scheduled to begin last
Tuesday as scrap material was to be


loaded on barges for delivery to the
two approved artificial reef sites, both
located in federal waters approxi-
mately 11 miles off the Franklin
County coast.
After laying scrap materials at
the two sites as a "foundation",
workers will dismantle the John
Gorrie Bridge and the Apalachicola
Bay Bridge and prepare the bridge
parts for barge delivery to the two
sites within the next few months.
Officials emphasize much of the
project activity depends on good
weather as the barges will not operate
during storms.
On-site coordinators for this pro-
ject are Scott Andre, Florida Sea
Grant Extension Service, and Woody
Miley and Steve Travis, both of the
Apalahicola National Estuarine Re-
search Reserve.
Planning for this project began
nearly four years ago and, according
to Virginia Vail, coordinator of the
state's Artificial Reef Program, the


during any nine-month period.)
Recipients in private institutions
may. receive SSI payments, but the
care received may be considered
income for SSI purposes. This income
might affect the payment since
eligibility for SSI and the amount of
the payment are tied to income levels.
As you can see, different circum-
stances have varying effects on SSI
payments. That's why we encourage
SSI recipients to tell us right away if
they have to go into an institution.
That way we can explain how their
specific situation will affect their
payments, and most importantly, help
them avoid possible overpayments.



f Big Bend

project "is unique in that the reef
materials were. easily acquired and
are near the sites where they will be
used. The bridge parts will prove to be
excellent material as they will
provide truly three-dimensional
reefs," said Vail.
Funding for this project is provid-
ed through DOT as part of its bridge
replacement project, and officials say
approximately 13,000 cubic yards of
bridge rubble will be placed at the two
reef sites, each measuring 1,000 feet in
length and width. Plans call for the
material to cover about nine acres of
Gulf bottom at each site and, upon
completion of the project, buoys will
be set up marking both sites. Officials
say the reef materials at both sites
will lie in approximately 70 feet of
water.
This project, coordinated through
Florida's Artificial Reef Program,
*represents two of approximately 230
permitted reef sites in Florida, which
is twice the number of sites in any
other state, officials say.

MINUTES
The Board of County Commis-
sioners of Gulf County, Florida met
May 10, 1988 in regular session with
' the following members present:
,Chairman Douglas C. Birmingham,
and Commissioners Billy Branch and
Nathan Peters, Jr. Others present
were: Attorney William J. Rish,
Admin. Asst. Civil Defense Director
Larry Wells, Deputy Clerk Towan
Collier, Road Superintendent Bob
Lester, Mosquito Control Director
Sam Graves, Jr., Building Inspector
DeWayne Manuel, and Sheriff Al
Harrison.
The meeting came to order at 9:00
a.m.
: Admin. Asst. Wells opened the
meeting with prayer and led the
pledge of allegiance to the flag.
Birmingham then reported that
Traylor is still not able to attend, due
to his back surgery, but he expects to
be back at the next meeting. He also
reported that Money left word that he
Will not be attending today.
Upon motion by Peters, second by
Branch, and unanimous vote, the
boardd approved the minutes of April
-26, 1988.
Ike Duren, resident of Gulf Aire,
presented two deeds and a survey of a
road in Seashdtre Subdivision, and
reported that he feels the Board has
the say-so in giving him a driveway
permit. Birmingham stated Gibson
fas not presented an answer concern-
ing his research on this project, and
upon inquiry by the Chairman,
Attorney Rish reported that Gibson
had told him he was concerned about
S a.survey problem, but that was all he
lhad mentioned. Birmingham stated
that the Board will pass the deeds and
surveyy on to the Attorney for further
research. 'Duren inquired as to
whether r he could get an answer before
the next meeting. Birmingham stated
he wouldlrather have something back
,from the Attorney before he makes
any commitments. Peters stated he
would also have to have a legal
opinion before he could make a fair
judgment i in this situation, and
Branch stated he has the same
feelings. Birmingham requested the
Attorney try to have the information
for the Board by the next meeting. He
also stated that he hopes Duren
understands that they have to make
sure because there are other parties
involved that may have legal recourse
if they make the wrong decision, and
told him that the Board would try to
have an answer for him at the next
regular meeting.
Evan Williams, Beaches Fire
Department Chief, appeared before
the Board to discuss their need for a
better communication system be-
tween them and the Sheriff's Depart-
ment. He stated that the fire depart-
ments have their own frequency, but
the Sheriff has no way to monitor it,
and suggested installation of a radio
in the Sheriff's Department. He also
reported that a base station radio
system would cost. approximately
$500.00, but that he.had beensjnformed
that a repeater is needed. Upon
inquiry by Birmingham, Wells report-
ed that a radio might help the
Sheriff, but would not solve the
problem. He stated that the original
plans were to eventually have this one
frequency on a repeater, which would
cost between $3,000.00 and $5,000.00.
Harrison then discussed that the
Sheriff's Department primary fre-
quency works off of their tower, but
Wells stated there is a repeater that is
used. Wells also stated that the
Sheriff's department primary fre-
quency is on a UHF which is a much
,better system than the VHF, which
,.they are discussing. After further
; discussion by Williams and the Sheriff
,about the problems they are having,
Branch moved the Board have Wells
work up a cost estimate for a
repeater, and report it back to them so
they can see if there is enough money
now, and if there is not, then they
could include it in the upcoming
budget and charge it out to all of the


Gulf County
Commission
fire districts, because this should not
be a general fund expenditure. Peters
seconded the motion. Branch request-
ed Wells report back at the next
meeting. Upon inquiry by Birming-
ham, Wells reported that all of the fire
departments are on this frequency
except the South Gulf County and
Howards Creek Fire Departments,
because they do not have radios at this
time. Upon vote, the motion passed
unanimously. The Board also directed
Wells to write Woody Powell, of the
Forestry Service, requesting they
donate radios, which have been taken
out of their trucks, to the County.
Wells reported that he has already
spoken to Powell concerning these
radios, but has not received a reply,
and stated that he will contact him to
get an answer.
Mosquito Control Director Graves
reported that upon inspecting the
ditch near the residence of Mike
Burkett, at Simmons Bayou, he found
no holding body of water, and no
mosquito larvae was present, therefore
he does not feel the State would allow
a mosquito control ditch in that area.
The Board directed Graves to put this
in writing.
The Board discussed that they
have received requests to begin
spraying for mosquitos. Chairman
Birmingham reported that the Mos-
quito Control Department will begin
spraying tonight, and the Board had
no objections.
Wells discussed the letter he
received from the U.S. Department of
the Interior, which is a reply to the
letter written to them by the Board.
He reported that the letter basically
states that each land swap is based on
its own merits, and they would have to
see the property. Wells also reported
that Ralph Rish, of Baskerville-Dono-
van Engineers, has submitted inform-
ation, taken from the surveys, show-
ing that tie land in question (the
property of Mrs. Judy Dew) does not
border the property of the Beacon Hill
Park. He stated that upon a telephone
conversation with the Bureau of Land
Management, they said that because
the property does not border the park,
it will make the land swap far less
feasible from their standpoint. The
Board directed Wells to write a letter
to Mrs. Judy Dew, informing her of
the reply from the Bureau of Land
Management, and include a copy of
the letter from the U.S. Department of
the Interior and copies of the surveys.
Wells reported that he has con-
tacted Doug Kent's office againr,
concerning the possible regulations on
septic tanks, but still has not r-zeived
any information. He stated that he
will continue to pursue this matter.
Wells discussed a letter from the
Department of Environmental Regu-
lation to St. Joe Forest Products
Compap.y, concerning financial re-
sponsibility for Buckhorn Landfill. He
stated that since Gulf County has not
filed financial responsibility, the DER
is looking to St. Joe Forest Products
Comfipa He also discussed a letter
from Robert Nedley, of St. Joe Forest
Products Co., stating they do not feel
it is their responsibility to file this
report. Wells then stated that Basker-
ville-Donovan Engineers- completed
the report itself in October of 1986, but
the agreement was not completed
because the County does not have a
hold-harmless agreement with Sylva-
chem. Rish stated that the financial
responsibility report must be filed
whether we have a hold-harmless
agreement with Sylvachem or not.
Birmingham stated it is not the paper
company's responsibility to be finan-
cially liable for the closure of
Buckhorn Landfill, and upon his
inquiry, Graves reported that they are
no longer accepting Sylvachem's
refuse, and that they have changed all
of the locks. Wells reported that the
financial responsibility does include
that the County will be liable for
everything within the lease area,
including what Sylvachem has put

sibility agreement. He also stated that
St. Joe Forest Products Co. has
advised Sylvachem to enter into a
hold-harmless agreement with the
County. Branch suggested writing
a letter to Sylvachem, informing them
, of the Board's position concerning this
matter. The Board agreed for Wells
and Rish to write this letter. Upon
discussion by Wells concerning Sylva-
chem's prior exemption at St. Joe
Landfill, Rish reported that Sylva-
chem was dumping outside our
official boundaries, therefore they
were held responsible for what they
dumped. After discussion about sub-
mission of the financial disclosure,
and upon motion by Peters, second by


their revenue would have to be
increased by $3,600.00 and their
expenditures would- have to be in-
creased by $3,600.00, and this will
have to be done by resolution. The
other $2,000.00 could come from the
$2,197.00 in the Fine & Forfeiture
Fund Reserve for Contingencies. She
also discussed a request from the
Judge to amend his non-payroll salary
budget in the amount of $460.00, due to
his having to spend $960.00, to fill the
position of his Judicial Assistant while
she was out on maternity leave, and
only $500.00 was budgeted for this. She
stated the $460.00 could be taken from
the General Fund Reserve for Contin-
gencies. Branch moved the Board


Gulf County Commission Minutes
(Continued from Page SB)


Branch, and unanimous vote, the
Board agreed to file the financial
responsibility disclosure immediate-
ly, Upon request by Branch, the Board
directed Wells to write Robert Nedley,
of St. Joe Forest Products Co.,
informing him of the Board's action in
this matter. Upon inquire by Attorney
Rish, Graves reported that Sylva-
chem is only dumping household
wastes into the landfill, and that he is
not sure where that plant wastes are
being dumped. Branch stated that
some of their wastes are being
dumped into county trailers.
Wells and Birmingham discussed
a letter from Robert Kriegel, of the
Department of Environmental Regu-
lation, concerning the Board's failure
to answer their consent order. Bir-
mingham reported that Kriegel had
contacted him about this, stating that
they need to know something. The
Chairman directed the appointed
committee to fill in the consent order
and present it back to the Board at the
next meeting, so it can be approved
and sent in. He also directed the
committee to mail copies of. the
prepared consent order to all mem-
bers of the Board before the meeting,
so they can review it.
Tammy Wood appeared before
the Board on behalf of Nurse Donna
Drew, of the Department of Health
and Rehabilitative Services, concern-
ing the proposed Primary Health Care
Facility, and requested the Board
allow them to construct this building
on a piece of County property near the
Courthouse complex. After discus-
sion, Branch moved the Board allow
them to construct the facility on the
property between the ditch and
Knowles Ave., which he feels is the
most suitable location, and authorize
the Chairman to execute an agree-
ment to that effect. Peters seconded
the motion for discussion. Upon
inquiry by Peters, Branch stated that
his motion would restrict the building
to the area between the ditch and
Knowles Ave. Peters stated the only
objection he has to the motion is the
restriction to that piece of property.
Mrs. Wood presented the plans for the
facility, aid upon inquiry by Peters,
stated that Ms. Drew had looked at the
property which Branch is discussing
and had said it was suitable as long as
the building will fit on it. Birmingham
then discussed that this will be a
County building, and also discussed
that there is always the possibility of
other buildings which may need to be
placed on the Courthouse complex
property in the future. Peters discus-
sed the access to sewer, and Attorney
Rish reported that the City is in the
process of bringing their system down
10th St., just past the last houses.

Upon vote, the motion passed unani-
mously. Branch stated the Board
needs to be sure to note that the
motion did include a written agree-
ment executed by the Chairman.
Birmingham stated he would like to
appoint a Commissioner on this end of
the County to work with Ms. Drew, so
that it will be more convenient to all
involved. Branch stated that it was his
thinking that the only thing that
needed to be done was for the
Attorney to draw up an agreement,
and for the Chairman to sign it.
Birmingham then discussed a definite
location, and Branch moved the
Board allow the facility to be built on
the South end of Knowles Ave., near
the Mosquito Control Department,
since the area is wider on that end,
and would be accessible to the City's
sewer system. After discussion by the
Chairman concerning the building
requirements, Attorney Rish suggest-
ed the Board request a proposal from
the Department of Health and Rehabi-
litative Services including what they
want, what they expect the Board to
do, and what they expect to do.
Branch stated this is a very hurried
project. Upon request by Rish, the
Chairman appointed Branch to work
with Rish in working up an agreement
with the Department of Health and
Rehabilitative Services. Peters se-
cofided the motion concerning the
exact location, and upon vote, it
passed unanimously.
Wells discussed a letter from
Road Superintendent Lester which
contains the objections to acceptance
of the roads in Gulf Aire Phase II, and
presented a copy to the Deputy Clerk
for their files. Upon inquiry by
Birmingham, Wells, reported that he
has mailed a copy of the letter to the
residents who attended the April 26th
meeting.
Upon motion by Peters, second by
Branch, and unanimous vote, the
Board approved an invoice from
Medicaid, in the amount of $7,353.53,
as presented by Deputy Clerk Collier.
Deputy Clerk Collier discussed..a
request from the County Judge to
amend his Probation Department
budget (Fine & Forfeiture Expendi-
tures) by $5,600.00, due to educational
expenses for a new officer, having
kept a part-time officer during the
training of the new officer, and extra-
expenses due to arming and insuring
the new .officer. Deputy Clerk Collier
reported that there is not enough
money in the Fine & Forfeiture
Reserve for Contingencies to take it
from there, it has only $8,697.00 of
which $6,500.00 belongs to the Sheriff -
leaving only $2,197.00. She stated that


table these requests until the next
regular meeting, in order for the
Clerk and the full Board of Commis-
sioners to be present, since a
resolution will be involved. Peters
seconded Branch's motion, and
amended the motion to include that
they have the Attorney to carefully
review the legal aspects of this
matter. Branch seconded the amend-
ed motion, and upon vote, the motion
and amended motion passed unani-
mously. The. Board directed the
Attorney to review these requests.
Deputy Clerk Collier discussed a-
letter from Jorge J. San Pedro, M.D.,
requesting the Board reconsider their
decision not to pay the invoice from
Karen S. Jones, D.O., for her services
rendered to jail inmate Gwen Cherry.
Branch moved the Board table this
and refer it to the Sheriff for him to
check into and present back to the
Board with a recommendation. Peters
seconded the motion, and inquired as
to the procedures used by the Sheriff's
Department when a prisoner is taken
to the doctor. Birmingham stated the
Board could table this matter until the
next meeting, refer it to the Sheriff,
and request he submit them a written
report on this incident. Upon vote, the
motion passed unanimously. The
Board directed Wells to refer this
matter back to the Sheriff, and
request he submit a written report to
the Board concerning this incident.
The meeting recessed for a short
break and reconvened ten minutes
later.
Branch moved the Board execute
the ambulance agreement between
the County and Gulf Pines Hospital.
Peters seconded the motion, and it
passed unanimously.
Branch discussed Knowles Ave.,
and the use of it by non-residential
vehicles, and moved the Board allow
the Road Department to pave
Knowles Ave., from Highway 71 to
10th St., due to the Primary Health
Care Facility being constructed on
this avenue, and due to it being used
by commercial and county trucks. He
stated that the Road Departrmnet has
the know-how and the equipment to do
this work, all they would have to buy
are the materials, which would be a
minimum cost. Peters .seconded the
motion for discussion, and questioned
Lester about his funds. Lester stated
he is not sure, about the costs. Peters
then withdrew his second, and the
motion. died for lack of a second.
Birmingham stated he did not agree
that this was the proper timing
because there is no Primary Health
Care Facility at this time, and he feels
it will be built during the next budget
year, at which time they might be able
to take a closer look at the situation.
Upon request by Branch, the Board
directed Lester to work up a cost


estimate and provide each Commis-
sioner with a copy by the next
meeting.
Upon inquiry by Peters, Wells
reported that he has not checked into
these workshops because the letter in
the agenda package was the first he
has seen concerning this. He stated
that Mrs. Gloria Woods is Gulf
County's contact, and that he can find
out more information from her.
Peters stated he would appreciate it if
Wells would check into this further.
Upon request by Peters, the
Board directed Wells to write a letter
to Representative Robert Trammell,
in appreciation of his efforts in
soliciting lunds for the Panhandle
Alcoholism Council's Starting Over
Straight Program.
Peters discussed the Solid Waste
Report for April, 1988, submitted by
the Mosquito Control Department,
and brought to the Board's attention
that they are probably going to run
into the red before September 30, 1988.
Peters discussed the employee
seniority list, which the Board had
requested for each employee of the
Road Department sign by their name
if they agreed with the dates of
employment, and reported that only
two employees had not signed. He
requested the Board allow him, the
Chairman, and Wells to have a
discussion after the meeting concern-
ing those two employees. The Board
had no objections. Peters also re-
quested the Board have employed
David Gray sign his full name, as he
had only signed his first name.
Upon inquiry by Peters, Wells
reported that we have not heard
anything from the Coast Guard
concerning the letter we sent them
about the permit application for the
replacement bridge at Highland View.
Peters discussed the invitation for
the Board to attend a luncheon in their
honor at the Senior Citizens Center,
and reported that Mr. Stokoe had
called him during the break and asked
him to remind everyone. Birmingham
stated he will not be able to attend
because he is leaving after the
meeting to go down south to Wewa-
hitchka's baseball tournament, and
requested Peters pass that inform-
ation on to Stokoe.
Birmingham reported that there
are still some unanswered questions
concerning this request by Mrs.
Gertrude Guilford, and the Attorney is
to meet with the property owners
before a recommendation is made
back to the Board.
Chairman Birmingham discussed
a request from the City of Port St. Joe
for a member of the Board to be a part
of their newly-formed "Beautification
Committee." The Chairman appoint-
ed Peters to serve on this committee,
and directed Wells tot write Pate,
informing him of this appointment.
Birmingham discussed a pro-
posed bill that the legislature is trying
to get passed, which consists of a list
of health requirements concerning
A.I.D.S. He stated, however, that the
bill concludes with a statement that a
person may not be discriminated
against because he has A.I.D.S.
Birmingham stated it is not in his
nature to discriminate against people,
but if A.I.D.S. is as dangerous as they
say it is, we may not have a choice. He
stated that he does not want to put
others in danger by having to hire an
A.I.D.S. victim. Birmingham then
gave the chair to Peters, and moved
the Board write the legislature,.
especially Representative Trammell
and Senator Barron, requesting they
withdraw the statement, about not
discriminating against A.I.D.S. vic-
tims, from this proposed bill. The
motion died for lack of a second.
Peters then returned the Chair to
Birmingham.
There being no further business,
the meeting did then adjourn.

Absorbing Energy from Storms


Can Cause Damage to Trees


According to an old song, lots of
nice things happen "In the Good Old
Summer Time." It's time for picnics,
beach outings, golf, fishing, water
skiing and that favorite American
pastime baseball.
But starting around June, we
have the prospect of not-so-nice
things, too: In Florida these include
hurricanes and lightning, according to
the foresters of the Florida Depart-
ment of Agriculture and Consumer
Services Division of Forestry.
Legend has it that Hurakan was
the thunder god of the Carib Indians.
It is from this that we derive our
word-hurricane. This year's hurri-
'cane names, as announced by the U.S.
Department of Commerce National
Oceanic and Atmospheric Adminis-
tration (NOAA), begin with Alberto,
Beryl, Chris, Debby and Ernesto and
end with Rafael, Sandy, Tony, Valerie
and William.
Whatever they're called, hurri-
canes are mean machines capable of
causing trees to fall or sway and
damage structures. Check your trees
to determine what they might do in a
storm; If you have limbs that are split
or that might smash into your home in
a high wind, professional foresters
recommend trimming or pruning
them now before a storm heads your
way.
The basic tools needed for reason-
ably simple trimming or pruning jobs
are good, sharp handsaws and prun-
ing saws, a ladder and pruning
shears. One thought is for you and a
neighbor or friend to inspect each
other's trees and work together on
whatever needs to be done.


Lightning is a whole anotherr ball
game because you don't get advance
warning the way you will with
hurricanes. But be aware, especially
you folks in Central Florida, that
June, July and August are the months
.of greatest lightning activity and
Florida has consistently ranked first
in lightning injuries and deaths in the
United States.
As a matter of fact, an egg-shaped
area bounded roughly by Tampa,
Lakeland, Cape Canaveral and
Gainesville is often referred to as the
lightning capital of the United States.
If you have especially beautiful or
sentimental trees or trees of obvious
value, you might want to consider
protecting them against lightning
strikes. Trees that stand alone or tall
trees at the edge of a group are among
these most likely to be struck.
Protecting a tree requires a
lightning rod system including an air

terminal point, a copper mesh coi-
ductor cable, ground rods and con-
ductor cable clamps. Two lightning
rod systems may be needed for large
trees but when properly installed
they'll provide pathways for the
electricity to travel without damaging
the tree.
Pines rarely survive lightning
strikes but hardwoods generally do.
So if one of your hardwood trees is
struck by lightning, promote the
healing process by removing any
damaged limbs. It might also be wise
to fertilize the damaged tree with
quick-release fertilizer to encourage
new growth and speed recovery.
County foresters with the Division
of Forestry will be glad to offer advice
and assistance with your lightning or
hurricane damaged trees. They're
listed in most local telephone director-
ies under the Florida Department 6f
