SIt Was A Perfect Match!


Steven O'Barr "Back On Track" After Receiving A New

Kidney-In Gainesville Just a Mere 19 Days Ago


Today, for the first time in' .s life, Steven O'Barr, 18-year-old son of Mr.
and Mrs. Carl O'Barr, has a normal and normally functioning kidney.
Steven received his new vital organ from an anonymous donor, just 19
days ago, today, and already, he is out and living a normal life. "I'm thinking
of going back to work in just a few days", Steven said Monday of this week,
Mrs. O'Barr said the family was in bed asleep, Sunday, July 17, when the
phone rang just before midnight, telling them to be in Gainesville by 8:00
a.m., the next morning. "A perfect match kidney has been located for Steven
and it will be here at the hospital at 6:00 a.m. We plan to begin surgery on
Steven at 8:00 a.m.", the voice said.
"Needless to say, we got up, made four or five phone calls to tell people
where we would be, packed our clothes and headed for Gainesville", Mrs.
O'Barr said. "We were there when they told us, but the kidney was delayed
an hour or two", she continued.
ON DIALYSIS
Steven had been on dialysis several times a day for nearly a year. Born
with only one kidney, doctors found out the one he had was deformed and was
beginning to fail a few years ago, when he had an X-ray for another ailment.
"We started receiving'small doses of medication immediately to help the
deformed kidney to function easier, but as time went on, the medication had
to be increased continuously and the kidney continued to shut down
completely".
Steven used doctors in the Tallahassee and Panama City area during his
kidney treatment and dialysis stages, but when it came time to consider a
transplant, he was referred to Dr. William Pfaff at Shands Hospital in
Gainesville. Dr. Pfaff did the eventual transplant surgery.


Steven's vitals were placed in a nation-wide organ donor computer
system to receive a kidney when one became available which would be
comparable to his system.
A perfect match became available on Friday, July 17, but there was a
patient with the same requirements ahead of Steven on the list. When the
kidney was taken to the patient, he wvas found to have peritonitis developed
-from his dialysis treatment, so it was then transferred to Gainesville and to
O'Barr.
Apparently the computer did its matching job well, because Steven is
now improved to the point where it is difficult to determine there is anything
wrong with him. Doctors said his recovery was "just like it was supposed to
be" according to the theory. "He had no complications .at all", his mother
said. "He was able to come home in a week and has shown no signs of
rejection at all".
CROSS YOUR FINGERS
Of course, Steven is not out of the woods yet, even though he is feeling
perfect. According to doctors, the rejection could begin as much as a year
from now. "But for right now, we're just enjoying the situation as it is and
hoping it will continue", Mrs. O'Barr said.
Steven said it was a relief to not be enslaved to the dialysis machine for
sustaining his life. "I'm feeling better than I have felt in a long time", Steven
said.
One of the things which worked in Steven's favor was that he never did
get debilitated from his condition. Doctors began treating him even before he
had any discernable symptoms of anything being wrong. And finding a
perfect match for a kidney replacement in less than a year probably had an
important part to play in his amazing results, also.

Attend Opening
The grand opening of the new driver license
headquarters here in Port St. Joe drew attention from
several managers on the state level last Friday, when the
new building was officially hosting an open house inspection
of the facility. Shown here, on hand for the grand opening


were, left to right, Richard A. Weaver, chief, bureau of
field operations; Rhudine Skipper, local manager;
Charlotte Spivey, regional administrator, Tallahassee;
James Herndon, assistant chief, bureau of field operations
and Danny Watford, regional administrator. The new
driver license headquarters is located in a specially-built
mobile building on the southeast corner of the Courthouse
complex here in Port St. Joe.


Emergency medical personnel and by-standers gather was injured in an accident Monday. Wright was pinned in

Charges Filed In Two Vehicle Crash


Two vehicles suffered extensive
damages but no serious personal
injuries were reported in a potentially
serious automobile accident on High-
way 98 at the St. Joe Forest Products
wood yard entrance Monday morning.
According to Police Chief Carl
Richter, two cars collided when one
vehicle pulled over into the path of a
second car.
Chief Richter said a vehicle


driven by Sandra Wright was travell-
ing toward the beaches, approaching
the traffic pattern at the paper mill
entrance, when she suddenly realized
she was in the inside left turn lane on
the highway.
Wright then started moving over
into the proper through lane of traffic
and moved into the path of a second
vehicle, driven by Richard Day of St.

School Board's


Budget Hiked by


Half Million $$


The Gulf County School Board has
been able to arrive at a tentative
budget for the 1988-89 budget year,
which reflects a .250 increase in
millage and an increase of nearly a
half million dollars in money. All of
the monetary increase isn't being
financed by local ad valorem taxes.
About $477,000 in new money is
being supplied by state funds. The
state chipped in $5,611,265 last year to
operate the Gulf County schools. This
year, they are expected to contribute
$6,088,363.
Local sources of revenue-all of
which is not ad valoremn taxes-are
expected to be $2,546,542.
The school system is expected to
have $8,658,905 to operate on during
the coming fiscal year. In addition,
the system is expected to receive
$1,022,283 in special revenue, $701,081
earmarked for debt service and
$549,264 to spend for capital items or
improvements.
One of these capital items is
expected to be the purchase of three
new school buses at approximately.
$80,000 a clip.


EXPENDITURES INCREASE
Several items in the expenditure
side of the ledger will be decreased,
but more will be increased.
The largest single item of in-
crease is in instruction expenses. This
item is expected to see an increase of
some $340,000. This item includes
teacher salaries. Last year, $4,509,000
was placed in this item and this year's
budget calls for $4,851,459.
Other hefty increases can be seen
in instructional staff training ($22,-
000); general administration ($95,-
000); school administration ($77,000);
central services ($28,000); Transpor-
tation ($47,000); plant operation ($50,-
000).
The major item of decrease is in
the plant maintenance item where a
reduction of $90,000 is shown.
Capital projects were reduced by
$90,000 and debt service was reduced
by $7,000.
Approximately half of the antici-
pated tax increase is going to
purchase the three new school buses.
A complete breakdown of the
proposed school budget is reproduced

Day took evasive action to avoid
hitting Wright's car. The swaying
trailer pushed Day's vehicle into

on the west shoulder of the highway.
Wright was charged by investi-

and driving with a suspended drivers
license.

THURSDAY, AUGUST 4,1988


and Our Garbage Proves It!

While cleaning out our old newspaper files the other day, we
came across an article written on the editorial page of The Star
back in July, 1971, which said: "A researcher by the name of
Dr. Richard N. Farmer has come up with a formula to
ascertain a country's affluence by the amount of garbage it
creates."
The article went on to say the more affluent nations
produce a large amount of garbage per capital while the nations
of a low income produce very little garbage.
If this deduction still holds true, we must be just rolling in
dough here in the United States and here in Gulf County. With
this kind of affluence and high standard of living, one would
think we wouldn't mind having to face the prospect of having to
shell out three quarters of a million dollars to handle the solid
waste of our 12,000 inhabitants.
It shouldn't matter to us that we're going face the very real
possibility we will have to pay $60.40 a year, each, to dispose of
our waste product. After all, if we generate that much garbage,
we should have the money to dispose of it. Right? Wrong!
Actually the $60.00 figure per year, per each is quite a sum
of money for garbage disposal. Since the average family has a
little better than three people per family, that figures out to only
4,000 families in Gulf County and ups the garbage bill to $180.00
per year, per family.
That's $15.00 per month.
When you figure that solid waste disposal has been paid for
by the tax payers for these several years, and not by charges to
the individual householder, the bill per payee grows out of all
proportion.
If someone doesn't beat us to it between the day this is writ-
ten and when it ultimately gets printed and distributed on
August 4, let us be the first to say that we as a tax payer will
more than welcome a user fee being levied on each and every
garbage generating home and business in Gulf County to help
us few tax payers pay for this growing disposal bill.
If there are more of us paying the bill, we feel sure we can
get some groundswell support in trying to put some sort of curb
on the high cost of disposing of solid waste. We've got to believe
there is a more reasonable and just as effective a manner to
dispose of solid waste than the horrendous, made-with-gold
solution being mandated by the Department of Environmental
Regulation. As with any governmental agency, if enough of us
howl loud enough, the noose will be loosened around our neck.


$300,000 A Hole

Did you ever hear of a set of plans to dig a hole in the ground
costing $300,000?
Oh, you say, such plans for a coal mine may cost that
much? That's true, but we're talking about a hole you could
throw a rock across and just about deep enough to make a
basement for a dwelling house.
Doesn't that sound silly? It did to us when we first heard it.
The thing which bothers us is that this is no joke. If the
county elects to apply for a solid waste landfill permit to
replace the one being closed at Buckhorn, DER requires a set of
engineering plans which will cost $300,000 to produce!
Now, there are former extras in burying solid waste, which
will be standard equipment in this $300,000 plan for a hole in the
ground.
Naturally, the $300,000 price tag will also include
engineering plans to cover the hole up when it gets full. One
would expect such a cost to be included in $300,000 worth of
plans to dig a hole in the ground.
Too, the plans will include the fees for permits required by
DER to operate the hole in the ground after it is dug.
If DER is going to be so adamant about the manner in
which solid waste is buried in Florida and they wished to help
these struggling small counties out, why can't they come up
with a set of engineering plans, say, "This is how your hole
must be dug"; furnish it to each county and then forget it.
That ought to save at least $250,000 in engineering fees for a
small county to make proper preparations to bury its solid
waste.
It was our assumption these bureaus existed to direct and
help the counties in their operations, but maybe we were wrong.


Hunker Down with Kes


by Kesley Colbert


If We Hadn't Lost Stonewall.


Cathy's gone again. Seems like
every summer she leaves me. This
time she's gone off on some kind of
school tour of Civil War battle sites.
She called the other night from
Tupelo, Mississippi. Now, admittedly,
I don't know much about the Civil War
but I don't think they had a battle in
Tupelo, Mississippi. I think they must
have stopped off to see Elvis's birth-
place. The next night she called from
Jackson, Tennessee. I'm sure you'll
remember the Battle of Jackson!
Listen, for the kind of money I'm
spending on this educational trip she
ought to be calling from Vicksburg,
Shiloh, Gettysburg or Richmond.
Heck, I'd even accept a collect call
from the courthouse in Appomattox.
Cathy ought to have to duck quickly as
we talk to avoid getting hit. I should
hear some bombs bursting in the
background. The second night she
called I asked to speak with Nathan
Bedford Forrest.
She's worried about how me and
the boys are making out. I assured her
we were doing fine. To kind'a get us in


the spirit of the trip I've put the boys
on short rations hardtack and
water. I rented "Gone with the Wind"
and I've told them all about their
great-great-great grandfather, Elijah
Fitzpatrick "Lighthouse" Colbert and
I'm a'making them listen to Hank
Williams Jr.'s "If the South Woulda
Won We'd of Had It Made."
The boys are getting into the
swing of it too. Just yesterday Josh
"captured" Jesse. Locked him up in
the dog pen and held him there all
night. Josh said he was going to keep
him there as insurance in case Grand-
daddy Elijah fell into Northern hands
- then we could make a prisoner ex-
change.
Of course, Cathy almost didn't
make the trip. Josh was playing
baseball this week in the State Dixie
Youth tournament and she didn't
want to miss it. Listen, with the up-
front mnoey I'd already paid for this
educational experience she was a'go-
ing on the trip if it hairlipped the
world. Plus I was hoping she'd get
Major General Edmund Kirby


. .


Smith's autograph for me. Josh was
even a little worried about going to the
tournament he was afraid that
Sherman fellow would reach the
house before we could get back to de-
fend it.
What a week. If Cathy calls
tonight from Paducah, Kentucky to
tell me about the big battle of
Paducah I'm going to wonder if this
trip is all about the same War Bet-
ween the States that I remember.
Plus, I'm getting awful tired of hard-
tack. And I can't talk Josh into letting
Jesse out to take a bath. And my
hands and back are sore from digging
the trench around the house. This
Civil War "experience" has been just
that. And you know it could have been
avoided. I could have saved the
money, Cathy would not have missed
the ball games and Jesse wouldn't
have spent the night out in the rain if
they all would have just listened to
me. Instead of signing up for the trip I
tried to tell Cathy that for "$19.95 I
could buy her 'The Complete Picture
History Book of the Civil War." '

Now I know what you're thinking.
This is the end of the story but your
wrong, it just gets worse. The trip
ends this weekend in Atlanta. I'm sup-
posed to pick her up. Cathy has a
cousin that married some singer
named Steve Winwood. I've never
heard of him but the boy don't sound
country to me. But hey, this is our
lucky week the Civil War "ex-
perience" ends on the same day and
in the same city that Gina's husband
is putting on a concert. This guy is
from England and I'm quite sure he
doesn't know the opening line of "The
Wabash Cannonball" but everyone in
my family is doing backfils over this
concert thing. Cathy, sensing my

much lead rope when he is in my care.
Almost every evening, after KIDS
throws him out the door at 4:30, A.J.
will come across the street to The Star
to spend a few minutes until his
mother goes home and takes A.J. with
her.
We're training him to set type at
The Star and he runs right in to the
type setters and goes right to work.,
At the ripe old age of two, he can
make the lights flash on the monitor
board and the letters come up on the
display along with the rest of us.,
One day, when he learns to spell a
little better, he'll be a good typesetter.
You see. I'm not spoiling him. I'm
teaching him to work.
A refreshment trip to the refrig-
erator where the cold drinks are kept
for a quick pick-me-up of root beer or
cherry Coke gets him ready to go
inspect the press room, then, to see if
John Ford is doing the job as he should


be doing it.
You can tell he will be an
executive one day because he always
stops and spends some time at the
water cooler. Of course, someone has
to lift him up, but he knows that
spending time at the water cooler is a
necessity if one is to get ahead in the
business'world. A.J. has learned that
lesson well.
Willie hasn't taught him to take a
chew of Levi Garrett, yet.
First things, first.
First, he had to learn to spit in the
wastebasket and A.J. has almost
mastered that craft enough to hit the
opening from 15 paces.
Tobacco chewing expert, Kesley
Colbert, says a good chewer can hit
the spit can from 30 paces.
Here is two-year-old A.J. and he
can already hit it from two paces. By
the time he is five or six he should be
well on his way to the 30 paces mark.


Some evenings, we take a little
trip to the store to do some serious
shopping.
If you think it isn't a chore for a
two-year-old to squat before the candy
rack and make a choice between
bubble gum, butterfinger, peppermint
drops, Snickers, marshmallows and
M&M's, you just haven't done any
serious shopping lately.
Most times, he will pick out a pack
of M&M's, and like the tycoon of
industry he is preparing to be, allows
me to pay for it.
If he picks the bubble gum, he
gets to get in a little practice on his
spitting for yardage at the spit can in
the back shop.
Usually, the selection is M&M's.
He picks this because he knows we try
to teach him his colors with the
M&M's and if he guesses wrong, he
just eats it.
If a fellow plays his cards right,
he can get through a whole pack of


M&M's before he gets those colors
right.

THE OTHER DAY A.J. was over
at the house and after he had eaten his
M&M's, cookies, pretzels, and other
selections of healthful food, he wanted
a drink of water.
Frenchie took him to the refrig-
erator, where we have one of those
through-the-door water and ice dis-
pensers. She drew him a glass of
water and then put him a couple of ice
cubes in it.
That thirsty young man stood at
the refrigerator for 30 minutes
drinking ice water, getting it out of the
door a swallow at the time.
He is fascinated with machinery.
Most of the time, we are fascinat-
ed by him; especially since he will be
the last one.
But we're ever careful not to spoil

FOOTBALL SEASON IS almost upon us. It comes around each year
about this time.
I played football for over ten years and every time I watch a football
game these days, I get so mad I could just spit.
There are several reasons I get mad when I watch or hear about
football games. It all started when I was in the sixth grade and first went
out for football at Ferry Pass Junior High in Pensacola.
+++++
FOR TEN LONG YEARS I was cursed at, physically abused, run
half-to-death and asked to attack people who would make the Jolly Green
Giant look like Ned and the First Reader. And, not one time during all
those years did either of my parents come out and defend their baby boy.
The reason they didn't is because I never breathed a word about it. If
I had they would have made me quit. As a matter of fact, my father didn't
want, me to play in the first place. After I begged and cried, he finally
consented, saying, "Go ahead and get your other eye knocked out, but
don't come running to me complaining after you do. You're still going to
do your work around here, eye or no eye!"
ANOTHER THING THAT bothers me while watching a football game
is seeing all those players running in and out of the game. When I played,
we either made the first team or sat on the bnach. If a substitute was sent
in for one of us, we had problems. We had made an unforgivable error or
had a broken leg or arm. Most of us would have preferred the broken
bone.
What it boiled down to was we had to have the physical stamina to
play the entire game, and we had to have the ability to do several of the
required specialties, like play offense and defense, punt and kick extra
points and field goals, catch passes, run back punts and kickoffs and have
the desire to kill someone. Passing out or throwing up on the field was not
allowed.
+++++
IN COLLEGE IT WAS somewhat different. The desire to kill came
first. It was a "do or die" situation because there were a lot of us out for
football who couldn't afford college, even on scholarship.
Another thing different in college was the game was longer. In high
school the game lasted 48 minutes. In college a game is 60 minutes; one
full hour. That's a long time to run full speed into people, pads or no pads.
Quite often a player would get his "lights turned off." When this
happened the manager and one of the coaches would rush to the fallen
player, break a small tube of ammonia, stick it under his nose and when
he came around, if he did, they would ask him three questions: What day
is today? What is one plus one? and What is your name? If he answered
one of the questions correctly he was allowed to continue playing.
If he was a good player in a critical position and could mumble loud
enough to be heard with a megaphone, he was allowed to continue.
+++++
THERE ARE OTHER things, to be sure. Players today are allowed
to wear face masks, gloves, padding on their forearms, legs and, I
understand, if.they are injured they actually allow them to go to the
doctor or hospital and pay the bill for them. Some sophisticated teams,
they tell me, actually have a doctor on the sideline during the game.
Rumor also has it that some of the "Specialist" players, like
quarterbacks, wide receivers and safety wear.silk jock straps and
pantyhose. I know a few who wear ear and nose rings.
Another thing that bothers me it that only "rich" boys play football
today. Have"you ever noticed on the college pre-game shows how well
dressed the players are? They also drive fancy cars and have all the
pretty girls.
Don't tell me the\ borrowed the clothes and the cars belong to their
rich uncle. All we had was dungarees, llip-llops and discarded football
practice jerseys.
If you don't believe what I'm telling you, ask Coach Craig. We have
discussed it and we agree that, considering all of the above, we still love
football, but, spit, spit, spit!!!

OBITUARY m

Joan McCroan
Beverly Joan McCroan, 58, died
Sunday morning in Gulf Pines Hospi-
tal after a long illness. She was born in
Port St. Joe and was employed with
the Gulf County School Board. She
was a member of the Gospel Assem-
bly in Panama City.
She is survived by: her husband,
Barney McCroan of Port St. Joe: four
sons, Gene McCroan and wife Donna,
Gary McCroan, David McCroan and
Phil McCroan and wife Karen, all of
Port St. Joe; her mother, Corene
McKeithen of Panama City, two
brothers, William C. McKeithen of
Panama City and Alton G. McKeithen
of Orlando; and three grandchildren.
Funeral services were held Tues-
day at the First Baptist Church with
the Rev. George Schofield of Panama
City -officiating. Burial was in the
family plot at Holly Hill Cemetery.
Gilmore Funeral Home was in
charge of all arrangements.


ty Budget
headed for a smaller increase than
first thought necessary to meet
unusual expense hikes during the
coming budget year.
One solution to the high increase
in taxes will likely be assessing a user
fee against residents for solid waste
collection and disposal, to relieve the
ad valorem tax load in this service
area.
Without considering most of the
huge increase in solid waste treat-
ment costs, it appears as if the budget
will come in at around $3,014,181,
requiring a millage levy of 7.685.
Last year's tax rate was 7.484,
which raised some $2,771,181. The
tentative increase amounts to .201
mill increase.
The Commission has until August
15 to come up with a financial plan
plateau for the coming fiscal year.
Florida law requires they set a tax
rate by this date. After that date,
more budget maneuvers may go on,
but state law allows only reductions in
the tax rate after the August 15 date,
without notifying every tax payer by
first class mail of any intended
increases.
Several items of increase are
showing up in the new tentative
budget, including an item of $30,000 to

Some say this won't be enough, but for
the time being, the Commission is
plugging this figure into their plan-
ning.
Other items of increase include
$37,640 in the fine and forfeiture
budget, which operates the legal and
law enforcement services in the
county: $30.000 for fire equipment for
the several volunteer units in the
county: $100,000 for new equipment
for the road department: $50,000 for
new equipment for the 'Mosquito
Control Department; $30,000 for the
ambulance service in south Gulf
County and a 30 cents per' hour pay
raise for employees.
All of these figures are increases


over the same items in last year's
budget.
According to Clerk Bennie Lister,
"This budget already contains some
$100,000 for solid waste disposal. This
was the amount anticipated for
incinerator expenses for the current
year and was placed in the new budget
as well."
In the solid waste disposal matter,
increases of $30,000 have already been
budgeted, which will pay for closing
down the Buckhorn landfill site. There
are no provisions made in the
financial plan for additional solid
waste costs, which could soar to as
much as three times the amount spent
last year. Nor, does the new budget
contain any funding to secure permits

Brazilian Fly Sent


After Mole Crickets

and construct a new landfill site for
the county. The main reason for
leaving this line blank in the negotia-
tions are that Bay County has not yet
reached an agreement with the county
as to what it will charge to accept
Gulf's solid waste in their incinerator.
According to reports in Wednes-
day's News-Herald, even Bay Coun-
ty's Commission doesn't know what it
will charge or what formula will be
used in arriving at that charge.

First of all I would like to expressmy gratitude to the people of Gulf County,
for the cooperation that I have received as Sheriff during this term. My concern has
always been to do a good job as your Sheriff. During the campaign, I will not say
anything against my opponents. I am running for re-election on my merits and my job
performance. I would sincerely appreciate your vote and support.

spreading mole cricket damage by
using natural enemies.
Pests whose tunnels brown out
golf courses, lawns, commercial turf
operations, pastures and fields of
vegetables, exotic mole crickets cost
Floridians at least $47 million a year,
says Dr. Howard Frank, director of
the mole cricket control project at the
University of Florida's Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sciences
(IFAS).
"They're spreading they're in
Georgia, Alabama and South Carolina
now and the damage is getting
worse," he said.
About the size of a house fly,
Euphasiopterx depleta comes to the
mating call of male mole crickets, and
lays her living larvae on or near the
singer. The larvae then burrow into
the male and mates.
"Ten days later the mole cricket
is dead," said Dr. Tom Walker, the
IFAS entomologist who will monitor
the progress of the Brazilian fly. "The
larvae come out, pupate, and start all
over."
U.S. Department of Agriculture's
Animal and Plant Health Inspection
Service (USDA-APHIS) granted per-
mission to release the red-eyed flies
after laboratory tests demonstrated it
only attacks exotic mole crickets
which are a U.S. pest and a closely
related species that does not occur in
the United States.
The flies have several generations
a year compared to one per year for
the exotic mole cricket. Gainesville's
climate is very similar to the flies'
homeland, so they should do well in
Florida.
If they do well, they will be
disseminated throughout Florida.
E. depleta is the third biocontrol
agent that IFAS has unleashed in
Florida against the mole crickets.
A wasp that subdues mole crick-
ets but does not sting people was the
first. Turned loose in 1981 near Ft.
Lauderdale, the introduced colony is
holding its own there. They mainly
attack a tropical mole cricket that is
only a pest in South Florida, however,
said Frank.
Nematodes, microscopic worms,
were released next, in 1985 and '86 in
several Alachua County pastures.
Offspring are still there and seem to
have caused a three-year decline in
mole cricket populations at the
release sites. This mole cricket
biocontrol could become a commer-
cial product when it can be produced
by the hundreds of billions.
Exotic mole crickets came from
South America, probably in the sand
ballast of ships, and it was to South
America that IFAS scientists turned
to find natural enemies of the pest.

Water Shortage In Panhandle



Not Imminent But Is Inevitable


The Northwest Florida Water
Management District held its regular
meeting here in Port St. Joe last week
and issued a discouraging report on
the future of water availability here in
the Panhandle.
Doug Barr, director of the NFWM
water resource division said some
limits in water use may be mandated
as early as 1992 here in the Panhandle,
if alternative water resources are not
developed.
While this particular part of the
Panhandle presently has an ample
supply of water, the recent drought


alerted residents as to what Barr is
predicting as the normal state of the
water supply in just a few years to
come.
As a result of the over-taxed
water supply, Barr said growth and
development may be pinched because
of lack of water. He especially noted
that islands and peninsulas where
saltwater intrusion can threaten
groundwater supplies are of most
concern.
Barr said available water
will be insufficient to serve new
development planned for St.


Joseph Peninsula unless alter-
native ways of bringing water
there are found. The manage-
ment spokesman said the short-
age is not imminent, but is
inevitable.
St. Joseph Peninsula is
already independent of ground
water supplies on the peninsula
itself. Most water supplies used
by developments on the penin-
sula are piped in from wells
located on the mainland.
Drought conditions have con-
tributed to the seriousness of the

Isn't It Pretty?
Of course, you realize the main emphasis of this picture is the animal, not
the pretty girl holding it.
The animal, an iguana, is a pet of the pretty girl, Catherine Fitzsimons and
wandered from home recently. Catherine, who works at the Dive Shop had left
the door open for a minute and the animal was gone in a flash. The iguana was
missing for six weeks before Port St. Joe police got a call on Avenue E about
this strange looking creature up in a tree. Officer James Hersey answered the
call. He knew Catherine was missing her iguana. Hersey and Billy Koran from
the Dive Center helped get the fearsome looking creature out of the tree.
Catherine welcomed the wandering beast home with a big hug.


Senior citizens who live in Florida
or Georgia soon will be able to hunt or
fish in either state without having to
buy a license.
That is a gist of an agreement
between the Florida Game and Fresh
Water Fish Commission and the
Georgia Department of Natural Re-
sources.
"This agreement will benefit
senior citizens from both states," said
Col. Robert M. Brantly, executive
director of the Florida Game and
Fresh Water Fish Commission. "It
will enable them to hunt or fish in
either state without having to bear the
added financial burden of a nonresi-
dent license."
Currently,' Florida and Georgia
residents who are 65 or older can
receive no-cost licenses to hunt or fish
in their home states. According to the
agreement, no other license will be
required for Georgia senior citizens to
hunt or fish in Florida. Florida senior
citizens wishing to hunt deer- iri
Georgia must obtain a Georgia
Honorary Deer Tag at no charge.
To fish for freshwater trout,
Floridians must purchase a $10.50
Georgia Trout Stamp. Both trout
stamps and deer tags are available at
1,600 licensed outlets in Georgia.
Traditionally, many Georgians
have come to Florida to fish, while

If you are running for an office or
working on a campaign and see your
signs posted on Florida Power poles,
we urge you to remove them. If
anyone sees a politician's signs on
utility poles, contact the campaign
headquarters and ask that the signs
be taken down.
The same holds true for garage
sale and home sale signs.
Each year during campaign sea-
son Florida Power receives com-
plaints about such signs. It's not just
the safety factor that upsets people -
it's the aesthetics and the appearance
that if a political sign is posted on a
utility pole near a home or business
then it's a sign of support.
Don't endanger a life. Don't lose a-
vote. Keep political signs off utility
power poles.


situation on St. George Island in
Franklin County, by reducing the flow
of fresh water from the Apalachicola
River into Apalachicola Bay. As a
result, shallow wells on the island
may suffer saltwater intrusion if
consumption is not restricted, Barr
said.
He said the agency has yet to
establish thresholds for water con-
sumption because of insufficient data,
although applications for large devel-
opments are at a record high.
The commission must give its
permission for any appreciable
amount of water to be removed from
underground sources.
Barr emphasized there are ade-'
quate warning signs that can be
detected before water is depleted.
Okaloosa and Walton counties
may have avoided depleting coastal
supplies by moving wells inland.

History Book
Planned for

Local Area
Curtis Media Corporation has
announced plans to publish a new
history book for Port St. Joe. Curtis
Media Corporation, the nation's lead-
ing publisher of history-related books
has consented to publish the book in
cooperation with Gulf County Library,
and is currently preparing inform-
ative brochures on how individuals
can write their family or business
story for the book.
Iris Garland has been named as
the Project Director.
The new book will contain the
history of Gulf County, churches,
schools, businesses, clubs: and organ-
izations, and family histories. There
will be no charge to have any story
included, nor is there any obligation to
purchase books.
All families, from pioneers to the
newly arrived, are invited to submit
their histories and photos, and bro-
chures instructing on how to write
family stories will soon be ready.
This will be a beautiful linen
hardbound, library quality book con-
structed to last for generations, and
will automatically become an heir-
loom. The book will contain several
hundred pages, and will contain
hundreds of stories, photos and maps,
g* many never before published.
Members of Thompson Temple

People who receive supplemental
security income (SSI) checks should
tell Social Security whenever there's a
change in their resources, income, or
living arrangements. That way, we
can be sure they receive the right
amount in their check every month,
and they can avoid the hardship
caused by paying back overpayments.
Too often, SSI recipients fail to
inform us about a change that should
be reported and end up being
overpaid. Since the law requires the
Social Security Administration to
recover the overpayment, the money
is usually withheld from future
checks, resulting in a tremendous
hardship for many recipients.
People can avoid overpayments
and their recovery by promptly
. reporting' -any change to Social
Security. Everyone who applies for,
SSI is told about the changes that
must be reported. And when a person
receives the notice that his or her SSI
claim has been approved, he or she
also receives a booklet, called What
You Have to Know About SSI. That
booklet details all the things that
should be reported. When the booklet
is received, it's a good idea to read it
carefully. Then, put it away in a safe
place and refer to it occasionally as a
reminder about what should be
reported.
Examples of changes that com-
monly result in overpayments when
not reported are listed below. If you
get SSI checks, you may be able to
avoid being overpaid by promptly
reporting these changes.
-an increase in resources-the
things you own, such as cash,
checking or savings accounts, stock,
bonds, and certificates of deposit;
-an increase in income-both
earned and unearned;
-you get help with your living
expenses;
-you enter an institution;
-you plan to leave the United
States;
-you move or someone moves
into or out of your home;
-someone who lives with you
dies;
-you or someone who lives with
you has a baby or gets married,
widowed, divorced or separated;
-an improvement in your health,
if you're getting checks because you
are disabled or blind.
It's easy to report a change-just
call any Social Security office. You
can find the number in the phone book
under "Social Security Administta-
tion" or "U.S. Government." You
should report the change within 10
days after the month it happens. But
remember, the sooner you report the
change, the sooner Social Security can
adjust your check. Avoid overpay-
ments-report changes right away.

tion of a famed super hero might
easily be applied to a tiny insect which
possesses amazing strength and a
ferocious appetite, the common flea.
While these pests don't attack our
ornamental plants, they can be a
serious problem in both the home and
garden.
Even if you don't have a dog or
cat, you may be bothered by fleas,
because they can breed and live right
in the landscape, feeding on neighbor-
ing pets and wild animals. Of course,
if you do own a pet, you're almost
certain to face flea attack.
Fleas, which are about one-six-
teenth of an inch long, have reddish-
brown, wingless bodies, with flattened
sides. They have long legs, well
adapted for jumping, an ability which
might remind one of superman.
However, their diet is more closely
, related to Dracula. They live on blood.
Fleas are promiscuous feeders, com-
monly attacking pests, livestock, a
variety of wild animals, and people.
If you have a live-in pet, your
house can quickly become infested
with fleas, which will attack you as
readily as your furry friend. Of
course, they, also will attack you
outdoors, where they're commonly
and incorrectly called "sand fleas".
Fleas in the landscape are the same
as those in your home. They may be
rather bothersome, regardless of
location.
Female fleas lay their eggs on the
hairs and in the habitat of host

New Business,
Weight Loss Clinic
Opens Here
A new business, Doctor's Weight
Loss & Nutrition Clinic, opened
recently in Port St. Joe.
The clinic, located at 302B Reid
Avenue, in the Phantry Business
Center, was officially opened August
1, according the Mrs. Gayle Rickert,
the clinic's director. '
Mrs. Ricker.t, .who also operates
Doctor's Weight Loss. Clinic in Pana- .
ma City, stressed that the clinic offers
fast and .safe weight control, is
medically staffed and offers personal-
ized counseling and evaluation. She
also pointed out that there is profes-
sional guidance and supervision and
they guarantee weight loss of 15 to 38
pounds per month. No exercise is
required, she added.
Doctors Weight Loss is the first
such business to open and operate in
Port St. Joe. "We had so many clients
driving to Panama City that we feel
there is a definite need in Port St. Joe
for our service," Mrs. Rickert stated.
The clinic is open Monday,
Wednesday and Friday, 12 noon until
6:00 p.m. and plans for a grand
opening will be a announced later in the
month.

animals. After larva and pupae
development, the adult emerges and
begins searching for a meal. Unfor-
tunately, adult fleas can survive for
long periods without feeding, a fact
which is painfully evident to anyone
who has been attacked by a horde of
ravenous fleas, on returning from an
extended vacation.
Pet owners face a constant battle.
A flea collar is not enough. Bedding,
sleeping areas, and other places the
animal frequents, also should be
treated regularly. Inside fleas breed
in floor cracks, around baseboards,
and beneath areas. For home and
landscape flea control suggestions,
check with your pet supply center.
Controlling fleas on an animal usually
is even more of a problem. You should
not use chemical treatments on very
young pets. Certain materials that
may be used on dogs, can't be applied
to cats. If in doubt, the best policy is to
check with your veterinarian concern-
ing flea control for your pet.
A University of Florida graduate
student conducted an interesting
study concerning the effectiveness of
commercial flea treatments, such as
collars, shampoos, and powders. In
some instances, collars that were
supposed to be effective for four
months, worked for only nine weeks
on dogs and eleven weeks on cats.
Shampoos and powders were found to
be effective in ridding animals of fleas
at the time of application. But, as soon
as treated animals returned to their
natural environment, they picked up
more fleas almost immediately.
