Dilemma Options Grow
, I i Two Contractors Interested In Gulf's Solid Waste
A month ago, there seemed to be
only one way for the'county to go in
disposing of its solid waste in a
manner which would be approved by
the Department of Environmental
Regulation. That one way was to haul
it all the way to Bay County and pay
big bucks to have it burned in their
incinerator. Bay County wasn't help-
ing resolve the county's financial
dilemma in the matter, by threaten-
ing a tipping fee at the incinerator of
at least $25.00 a ton.
This week, the picture seems
brighter than it has been in over a
year for the solid waste problem to be
solved afd for the county tax payer to
stop expecting an increase in his tax
levy of at least two mills.
Commission Chairman Doug Bir-
mingham told the Commission Tues-
day there are at least two private solid
waste firms who are interested in
making the county a proposal on
handling its solid waste on a user fee
basis. "This may not be the answer,
but at least it is an alternative we can
consider", Birmingham told the other
members of the board.
The other solid waste alternatives
is to try and secure a permit to
construct another landfill with DER's
requirements built in, or continue to
haul to the incinerator in Bay County.
Both alternatives promise to be
Tonight, the Commission will
meet with both Waste Management,
the largest waste disposal firm in the
nation and with Argus Corporation to
discuss a waste disposal system for

operating in Gulf County", Birming-
ham said Tuesday morning, "and
may be the answer to our solid waste
Birmingham said both firms
would be approached with the consid-
eration of "handling the whole thing,
lock, stock and barrel or just disposal
of what we have collected", he said.
In the meantime, Bay County is
also working on a proposal for Gulf
County to use its incinerator.
Birmingham said he has received
enough complaints of political signs
on trees and the roadside to bring it up
before the Board. ."We have never

Commissioner Peters suggested
that every candidate should know by
now that the county is in the midst of a
campaign to control litter. "They
should be reasonable enough to
remove their signs after election, win
or lose". !
Commissioner Billy Branch noted
the county has a right-of-way sign
ordinance and observed, "We should-
n't let it get out of hand".
So, the gist of that discussion was,
the Commission won't do anything
right now, but if the situation gets
ridiculous, expect a crack-down on the
signs. Also, the Commission is expect-
ing all candidates to take down their
signs after the election.

The Apalachee Regional Planning
Council reported to the Gulf County
Commission this week that an agree-
ment had been worked out with
Raffield Fisheries, Inc., of Port St.
Joe, in repayment of an Economic
Development Administration loan.
The loan was made to Raffield to
recover from a disastrous fire which
destroyed the business, with the
ARPC as the servicing agent for the
loan and the Gulf County Commission
as the local sponsor of Raffield.
The loan was granted by federal
sources to-protect some 300 jobs which
Raffield provides in their operation.
The local firm had asked for a
year's moratorium on the repayment
schedule due to several circumstan-
ces, including state restrictions on
commercial fishing limits, severely
affecting their cash flow.
The ARPC took up the matter
over a period of about two months of
discussion and study, and has agreed
to grant Raffield the year's morator-
ium with the provision they pay $1,500
monthly on the interest.
In addition, the company must
provide ARPC with a financial
statement each month, projecting
expected business of the firm.
The moratorium lasts until July,
1989, at which time the payment

manager of the huge seafood producer

exploring alternatives to the fishing
regulations, "to get back into the
business of fishing again".
Raffield told The Star, "Most of
these news reports are saying we are
in default on this loan, but in reality
we have paid over $100,000 in

years. We only owe the payments

Overpass Concrete Rail
Is Ahead-of Schedule----...
Construction of new guard rails on the Joe L. Sharit overpass just north
of town is coming right along, with the east guard rail nearing completion,
according to the DOT foreman on the job this week.
As the photo shows, the steel work is almost in place for pouring
concrete on one of the rails. The rail is scheduled to be finished in about
three weeks. '
Work on the west side of the overpass will begin immediately after the
east side is complete. According to the DOT spokesman, the project is just
a little ahead of schedule. When the project was first started, it was
estimated the new guard rails would be in place by October.
The overpass crosses over the rail lines which enter St. Joe Forest
Products' paper mill here in Port St. Joe.
Complaints of cable television
service throughout the county contin-
ues to rise and confront the Gulf
County Commission and the Mexico
Beach City Commission.
Multi-Vision, a corporation which
recently purchased Essex Cablevision
has apparently inherited any prob-
lems subscribers are complaining
about, plus, they have added a
problem of their own.
MultiVision has announced a
pending increase in service cost.,
--.- MultiVision serves 'all of Gulf
County-with the exception of Port St.
Joe-and Mexico Beach. Without
exception, all of these communities,
served are unhappy with the pending
increase and the fact they must take
all the channels MultiVision has to
offer, whether they want them or not.
County Commission chairman
Doug Birmingham told the Commis-
sion Tuesday, the county has no
jurisdiction over the cable's rate
structure, but observed, "We are
getting enough complaints about the
firm, its service and its charges that
we should take a look at their
franchise and do what we can to bring
about some control over their activi-
ties", he pointed out.
Birmingham said the cable com-
pany is presently offering a basic
service for from $8.00 to $10.00 a
month and are now planning to
require all customers to take all
channels offered at a cost of $18.00 a
Birmingham's suggestion that the
Commission take a look at the
franchise agreement met with ap-'
proval from the rest of the board.
"Maybe we could persuade them to
maintain that basic service for those
who just want to be able to watch TV,
without having to take all the frills
also", Birmingham suggested.
The Chairman noted that "It's
true, we don't have any control over
their rates, but we do control the
franchise". The franchise allows the
cable television company to operate in
its area of service and allows it to use
utility easements for installation of
their cables and lines, as well as has
some control over its manner of

School Starts Monday Ending Summer Vacation
Summer vacation is already over for Gulf County school
teachers and it will be over for students Monday morning, bright
and early, when students return to the classroom to begin the
1988-99 school year.
Teachers returned to their tasks yesterday to begin setting
up to welcome the pupils' return on Monday.
According to Superintendent of Schools, B. Walter Wilder,
neither the teachers nor the pupils will have many surprises in
the new school year. "We'll still be required to offer seven
periods per day of 50 minutes duration and still require a
minimum of 24 credits in order to graduate", he said.
The physical plant is in good shape, there are no new
buildings going up, all the programs are in place and the staff is
full for the new year.
Wilder said the teaching staff will be about four instructors
less this year, mainly due to the termination of several small
programs which were being financed by federal funds and
programs. "We didn't have any choice but to let the teachers in
these programs go. Mainly they were on annual contract
anyhow, and 'expected their position with the board to be
terminated at just any time", the Superintendent said.
PLENTY OF TEACHERS
When asked about how the much-publicised news stories on
the nationwide teacher shortage affected Gulf County Wilder
said, "We have had no problem finding teachers. Actually we
have applications come in each and every week from the larger
cities because these people are wanting to move out of the big
city environment into a small rural peaceful situation". While
this interview was going on, a couple walked into the School
Board office suite at the courthouse, wanting to put in their
applications for teacher positions. "We'll have a full staff",
"The only building program being contemplated is a library
and exceptional education building to complete the Wewahtich-
ka Elementary School complex", Wilder said. "However, a
change in the manner of distribution of state funds for building
purposes has caused us to reach the decision that we will not be
getting these buildings in the near future. It would cost $350,000
and we're not getting that kind of money anymore. We're just
going to hold off on this project for a while", the Superintendent
The head school man said the district has just paid off a $1
million bond issue in January of the present year. "We're in
good shape, right now, so far as indebtedness and building need
is concerned. We are buying three new buses this year, which
will cost us around $90,000."
Wilder pointed out the only program change being
contemplated at this particular time is to draw up and
implement a program designed to discourage drop outs by
students and to make plans for a pre-kindergarten program. "I
look for this program to be mandated by the state in just a short
while", he said.
The start of classroom activities on Monday will be about a
week's early start on most school districts in Florida. "We're
doing it (starting early) in order to have our first semester of
school completed by Christmas break," he said.

Quite A Slap
On the Wrist
We wonder how many people, who are not actively involved
in government-especially local government-realized the
federal government could have the power to do to a small town
as they have to Yonkers, New York?
Not only the federal government, but many state
governments have this type power over cities, struggling to
make ends meet, mind their own business and keep a peaceful
community for their citizens to live in.
In case you missed it, the federal government has fined the
city of Yonkers, N.Y., $100 a day, doubling daily, which will
surpass the city's $337 million operating budget in just 23 days.
That's quite a "slap on the wrist".
Why did the government do this? Because Yonkers
wouldn't take some federal housing money and build 800 units of
"affordable" housing in areas where this type housing wasn't
zoned. Not only is the city of Yonkers directed to build the
housing whether they need it or not, the federal government is
telling them to build the units in areas where apartments are
not zoned to be built.
All cities have areas where multi-family housing, as
apartments are called, are not to be built. This isn't to keep the
apartments from being built, you understand, it's only to
protect the property values of the person who puts up a nice
expensive home and expects to have it appreciate in value.
While apartments are, for the most part, nice places to live,
they are not the type construction a single family dwelling is.
They change the values wherever they are built. In areas zoned
for apartments, a nice development enhances the values. In a
poorly maintained area, they would probably enhance the
property values. In an area of average homes, the values of
neither the homes nor the apartments would likely be changed.
Actually, the city fathers of Yonkers have stuck their
collective necks out to protect the interests of their citizens,
apartment dwellers and single unit dwellers alike.
The federal government doesn't like them doing their job,
however, and have levied the totally unreasonable fine.
It could happen to us here in Port St. Joe because our
dwelling areas are zoned. Certain sizes and certain type homes
can't be built except in areas zoned for them. Such zoning laws
protects the investment of everyone involved.
To be sure, if the feds were to levy a fine against Port St.
Joe like they did Yonkers; and they did it on, say, a Thursday;
we wouldn't be able to get the news to you in the next edition
before all Port St. Joe's budget would be used up.
We hope it never does and we also hope the feds recant their
decision and use a little common sense toward Yonkers.
In the meantime, we're proud of the Yonkers commission
for standing up to the feds in an necessary infringement on
their dd tes.
Three for Price of Two
The Republican National Convention gets under way in
New Orleans in just a few days. At long last, we will see who
George Bush has selected for his running mate.
We can't help but wonder if the Republicans are going to
give us the bargain the Democrats are offering for leadership in
our country. We believe the constitution allows us only two
people to serve as President and Vice-President, but, if the
Democrats are elected, we seem destined to get three leaders
for the price of two, in spite of all we can do.
George Bush has people like Jack Kemp, Bob Dole, Nancy
Kassenbaum and a few other unrecognizable names standing in
the wings waiting for the nod, but there is no indication that Bob
Dole is going to be the third man in the troika if he isn't picked
as number two.
Experience with the Democrats would lead us to expect
that this could happen with Dole, but indications are that since
Dole lost the nomination, he isn't going to say the nation or
the Republicans owe him anything. Dole seems destined to
admit that he lost and let it go at that.

Everyone Remembers Going Back to School After Vacation
ALMOST BEFORE YOU realize
summer vacation is here, it will all be
over Monday when the kids all go
back to school.
' That going back to school, is
usually the signal that it's time to get
back down to serious business again.
Summer time is gone. The tempera-
ture is still flirting with the 100 degree
mark, but summer time is over.
I REMEMBER GOING back to
school when I was a little shaver. That
was a long time ago, but, like other
important times in my life, I
remember going back to school when
the summer vacation was over.
Often I forget the names of people
I have known for 30 or 40 years;
especially, if I have to recall that
name in an instant or two. Of course,
the name invades my fading memory
in just a short while, but during the
time I must use it, names are the most
illusive things in what has. to pass for
Like I say; I forget the names of
people I have known for the past 40
years, but I still remember the names
of certain teachers who taught me
in my school career.
For the sake of finishing off this
column this week, let me tell you of
going back to school and some of the
elementary grade teachers I had.
I still remember their names, even
though that was back in another age.
By another age, I mean before
TV. the automatic transmission on
automobiles, before air conditioning
and during the time when an electric
fan and both hot and cold running
water was a luxury.
THE FIRST DAY OF school was
usually a day of misery, physically,
The first day of school meant I
had to wear shoes from breakfast at
least until school let out in the
afternoon. After three months of going
barefoot all day, every day, suddenly
having to wear shoes was just a little
short of torture.
It meant we had to stay inside all
day long. There were to be no trips
into the woods, no excursions along
the railroad tracks to see what we
could find of value. No more roaming
the town hunting Coke bottles to trade
in for full ones. No more spending the
day in the Gailey Garage with the
huge mulberry growing alongside, so
we could climb up on top at our will.
No more riding Mr. Denny's mules
down in his pasture, No more picking
cotton for Lew Farris for 50c a
Summer was over! It was back to
I STILL REMEMBER Miss
Haught, Miss Hudson, Miss Ewing
and Mrs. Romine. I think Mrs.
Romine was the only married teacher
I ever had in the elementary school
Mrs. Romine had that quality of
squinting her eyes and looking at you
like she was going to tear your head
off if you so much as moved a muscle.
But then she was so soft-hearted
she ordered boxes of colored straw so
a boy in our room, who was too "slow"
to keep up could at least occupy his
time weaving baskets.
Miss Haught had me in the first
grade and again in the third. She lived
across the street from us and we
always had good relations with Miss
Miss Haught made us sit for hours
doing ovals and push-pulls. "It'll help
your penmanship in days to come",
she would say and then count off
points if the ovals weren't perfectly
round and if the push-pulls didn't all
slant at the same angle all across the
sheet of paper.
I took pains with my ovals and
push-pulls, but nobody here in the
office who has to read my writing ever
comes up and says, "Boy what clear
writing you have!"
MISS HUDSON HAD me in the
second grade and she started the
tedious task of teaching us all to read
something other than "Run Jack,
run!". Miss Hudson was sort of portly
and I believe she got married and
moved off about the time I got into the
third or fourth grade.
Then there was Miss Ewing in the

She would make us have banquets
and dinners, trying to teach us the

If Murder Was the Game
IN ALL MY YEARS on earth I have never really wanted to kill
anyone. Oh, I have said I would from time to time, but that was just talk
like we all do sometimes in the heat of the moment.
However, if no one on earth would pull the switch on Ted Bundy, I
believe I could do that. But, that ain't murder; that's getting partially
Nevertheless, I believe if I ever did decide to kill someone, I think I
would lure them to Massachusetts. Once there, it wouldn't make a whole
lot of difference how.or where I killed them. I'm almost certain I wouldn't
be incarcerated for very long, according to an article I read.
ACCORDING TO AN article published in the Reader's Digest
(Getting Away With Murder, July, 1988, pages 57 through 62), murder in
Massachusetts is a relatively easy crime to beat. Well, not actually:beat,
but a person stands to serve more time for beating his mother in
Massachusetts than he does if he had done her in.
Guess'who's responsible for this little miscarriage of justice in good
ole Mass.? That's right. It's ole "Shorty Speedball," Michael Dukakis,
the same short-stuff that let Jesse Jackson run the convention in Atlanta,
when he was supposed to be in charge.
According to the article, one convicted murderer, William R. Horton,
Jr., was sentenced to life in prison after he and two other men murdered a
young man, Joey Fournier, at a service station while robbing lim. A few
years after Horton, who had a long history of assault, robbery, etc., was
imprisoned, supposedly with no chance of parole, he was released on a
little known law that grants prisoners-convicted killers, like Horton-48
hour furloughs from prison. .unattended.
+ + + + +
ON JUNE 6, 1986, William Horton was released from the
Northeastern Correctional Center in Concord, Mass., on a 48 hour
furlough. He never returned.
One might think a person who had served almost 12 years behind bars
and escaped death-by the stroke of a pen by "Shorty" Dukakis-would
lay low and keep his nose clean. Not William Horton or any of his kind.
Less than a year after his prolonged "furlough", Horton struck
again! This time he almost killed two people, Mr. Clifford Barnes and his
wife, Angela, who lived in Oxon Hill, Md.
On October 20, 1987, according to the article in Reader's Digest,
Horton was sentenced to two consecutive life terms plus 85 years by a
judge in Maryland. The sentencing judge refused to return Horton to
Massachusetts, saying, "I'm not prepared to take the chance that Mr.
Horton might again be furloughed or otherwise released. This man should
never draw a breath of free air again," he concluded.
I CAN JUST HEAR what Michael Dukaki's had to say about this to the
judge. "William Horton is not a bad boy. He's just been mistreated and
needs some recreation arid rest."
To which the judge might reply; "Not bad!!! He's robbed, raped,
murdered, assaulted with intent to rape and murder, pillaged, plundered
and God only knows what else! I'd call that kinda ornery, wouldn't you,
Getting away with murder in Massachusetts is a reality! That sweet

Dad rolled his jeans dowp over his
cowboy boots, pulled tip his shirt col-
laIr and put on some sunglasses so no
one would recognize him, throwed in a

chew of Levi-Garrett and in we went.
I only saw Dad move one time
during the entire concert. That was
about half way through the first song.
He jumped up and yelled, "Turn it
down, turn it down!" Poor Dad, the
people in the row right in front of us
couldn't even hear him. It was kind'a
loud. By the time Uncle Steve got to
"Higher Love" Dad was tearing off
pieces of the napkin that came with
his Coke and sticking them in his ears.
Dad didn't do bad when we got
backstage after the show. Uncle Steve
was really nice, too. He invited Dad to
come to England and shoot some
skeets and go grouse hunting with
him. Dad said that he didn't get to
England as often as he'd like. I knew
Dad was putting him on-shucks,
Mother can't even get him to take her
to Panama City-he ain't going to
England. Dad told me later that those
folks over there probably had to eat
those skeets and grouse 'cause they
couldn't get real Southern fried
Hey, Dad wasn't going to be out-
done by a rock singer so he invited
Steve and Genia down to Port St. Joe.
He promised to take 'em coon hunting
out by White City. He said we'd get
some oysters, barbeque a possum and
go the whole nine yards. They really
liked the idea and promised to com-
e-I think it was that part about the
possum that really got them excited.
Uncle Steve only made one mistake
and that was just as we were getting
ready to leave. He asked Dad how he
enjoyed the show. Well, Dad studied
on that for a minute, shifted his chew
to the left side, looked him right in the
eye and said "Boy, don't you know
any train songs."
I think Dad might have survived
the concert but as we were getting
ready to leave early the next morning
Jesse and I hit upon the idea of going
to Six Flags Over Georgia. Dad said
nonsense, we could be home by lunch.
Mom came to our aid and by lunch we
were riding The Great American
Scream Machine. I think Dad may be
down for the count.
Thanks for your time,

Sylvachem Resolves Alleged DER Violation
A Delaware corporation has
agreed to pay the Florida Department
of Environmental Regulation (DER)
a $6,175 settlement to resolve alleged
violations of state and federal hazard-
ous waste regulations at its Port St.
Sylvachem Corporation agreed to
pay the settlement under the terms of
a consent order executed July 28, 1988
at the DER district office in Pensa-
cola. The company also agreed to
reimburse the Department approxi-
mately $573 for expenses involved in
its investigation and to document that
the city of Port St. Joe's publicly
owned treatment works had been
notified that it was receiving hazard-
ous waste from the company.
The Department alleged that
Sylvachem had violated several haz-
ardous waste regulations at its Port
St. Joe tall oil distillation facility. The
major violations were the failure to
use a manifest system in transporting
hazardous waste and transporting
hazardous waste without the required
Environmental Protection Agency
The consent order resolved a
warning notice issued Nov. 11, 1987.
The warning notice detailed violations
observed during a Sept. 25, 1987
compliance inspection at the facility.
A copy of the consent order is
available during normal business
hours at the district office, located at
160 Governmental Center, Pensacola.
Astronaut Congressman Meeting
Leaders Here for Lunch, August 18
While it is gratifying to note the
progress 'of the Beautification Com-
mittee, it is clearly noted that a great
deal of work lies ahead. So much is yet
to be accomplished that there is great
need for all-out assistance from the
merchants, industries, and profes-
sional and lay members of the
community. To make our City pre-
sentable for the events to be observed
later in the year, much more impetus
must be generated toward the pro-
gress of the program.
I am pleased to inform the Board
of City Commissioners and the
citizens of Port St. Joe that this
Company, its subsidiaries and affi-
liates will utilize its resources to the
fullest in furtherance of this very
important project. Ind a very short
* time efforts to clear the areas
adjacent to the main approaches to
the City will commence. With the
assistance of the City, the Paper
Company will aid in clearing down-
town vacant business and develop-
ment properties that appear to have
grown up in vegetation caused by late
summer showers. Additionally, this
Company will clear debris from
construction sites and automobile
repair businesses and other areas that
have been allowed to accumulate on

Chicken Fajitas, the latest Mexican taste treat to sweep the nation, can
be easily and deliciously prepared at home. The recipe is simple:
Boneless chicken is briefly marinated in zesty lime juice and naturally
brewed Kikkoman Soy Sauce before broiling. Although not a traditional
fajita seasoning, the unique taste characteristics of brewed soy sauce
enhance the flavor of the chicken while complimenting the tangy lime.
Sauteed red and gieen pepper and red onion strips complete the filling and
provide lively counterpoints of flavor. These vegetables also rely on brewed
soy sauce for a special richness which creates a harmonious taste overall.
Serving is also easy on the hostess because the guests assemble their own!
'V cup Kikkoman Soy Sauce 8 eight-inch flour tortillas,
/4 cup lime juice warmed
4 boneless chicken breast Butter or margarine,
halves a softened
Peppers 'N Onions*
Combine soy sauce and lime juice; pour over chicken in large plastic
bag. Press air out of bag; tie top securely. Marinate 1 hour; turn bag over
occasionally. Reserving marinade, broil chicken 5 inches from heat 15 to 18
minutes, or until tender; turn over and brush occasionally with reserved
marinade. Keep warm while preparing Peppers 'N Onions. Slice chicken
into thin strips. To serve, spread tortillas with butter; wrap around desired
amount of chicken and vegetables. Makes 4 to 6 servings.
*Peppers 'N Onions: Cut 1 large red pepper, 1 large green pepper
and 1 red onion into 1A-inch thick strips. Saute in 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
in large skillet over high heat 4 minutes, or until tender. Stir in 1 Tbsp.
Kikkoman Soy Sauce.

NEUROSIS AND PSYCHOSIS
WHAT 00DO THEY MEAN?
Neurosis is defined as a mild emotional disorer in
which you might experience feelings of anxiety, make
compulsive acts and usually have physical complaints
without specific evidence of disease. Psychosis is any
major, severe form of mental illness.
Most everybody has a neurosis occasionally and
sometimes a mild tranquilizer is prescribed to help
ease the stress. With a psychosis, treatment calls for
strong medication inr many cases. There are hundreds
of drugs available for mild or severe mental problems.
We carry them all in our prescription stocks.

Holy Scriptures Proclaim
A Need for Social Justice
Have you ever wondered why we
feel uncomfortable and become defen-
sive when we study scriptures that
speak of social injustice?
Without fail these passages show
that God is on the side of the poor and
the oppressed. He is angry with power
structures (both religious and politi-
cal) that hold back people who are
struggling for their basic rights. His
wrath is pointed toward corrupt
leaders. And he reserves harsh
judgment for ordinary folks who
abuse their peers.
Why should those kinds of social
justice passages threaten us? What is
it that we don't like about this part of
A good example of one of these
many passages is found in Ezekiel
chapter 34. In this chapter Ezekiel is
prophesying against the rulers of
Israel. These rulers are the wicked
shepherds pictured in the first ten
verses. In verses 11 through 16 Ezekiel
describes the way our Sovereign Lord
wants the world to be run. In verses
17-22 he tells of the disgusting way
ordinary people treat each other in
their daily living. And finally in verses
23-31 he speaks of the ideal world that
the Savior will reign over.

by the Rev. Jerry R. Huft, Rector, St. James Episcopal
As long as we read those passages
in the context of the corrupt nation of
Israel we can feel righteous. Even if
we look at these verses in the context
of history we can still feel good about
ourselves. We can easily point our
fingers at the apostate priests and
kings of ancient Israel or the dreadful
colonists who terribly abused Afri-
cans, Asians, and American Indians.
After all, we personally had nothing to
do with their excesses.
We can even apply these texts to
the leaders of other countries and to
their insensitive people without guilt.
We can say shame on South Africa, or
Russia, or Cambodia, or Haiti. It is
easy to see their faults and it is just as
easy to give a quick solution to their

At Beale Air Base
Air Force Senior Airman Stephen
M. Stripling, son of Michael C. and
Pat Stripling of Wewahitchka, has

He is a 1982 graduate of Wewa-

But why do we feel so angry when
someone points out the fact that the
same power struggles and abuses are
going on in our own country? Why
does equal housing, or equal job
opportunity, or equal education cause
such distress to our consciences?
The answer to all these questions
is not as elusive as I once thought.
God has not called the world or its
political structures to righteousness.
He has called his people to reigheous-
When. believers mature to the
point where they can identify them-
selves as as part of the Body of Christ,
regardless of nationality, gender, or
race, they no longer feel threatened
by criticism of the social structures or
political systems they live within.
Social structures and political sys-
tems are the components of the world.
We are called to live in the world but
we are not to be made of the same
stuff the world is made of.
If you are angered by criticism of
your world, even when your world is
wrong and in your heart you know it,
you still have some growing to do. If
you can turn your back on injustice to
preserve your world, then your heart
belongs to the world.
On the other hand if you are one of
those who is trying to find solutions to
social and political injustice, you are
growing into the Body of Christ. Read
through that Ezekiel passage. Look at
verse 22, what two promises does God
make? Look carefully at verse 31, who
are the people God claims as his own?

Don't Dispose of It... Compost It!
'All Kinds of Old Things Made Good Plant Food for Gardens,
by Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Director
Grass clippings, potato peelings,
onion tops and other vegetative waste
material can be made into a valuable
soil conditioner and plant food for fall
garden beds by remaining in a
compost heap this summer.
Compost can be used in several
ways. It provides a good usable soil
amendment for the garden and is
certainly much less expensive than
peat. Incorporated into the soil or
around plants it is beneficial in
improving soil tilth, friability, water
holding capacity and nutrient reten-
tion. Also, compost is used on the soil
surface as a mulch to control weeds
and conserve moisture. Or, you can
mix your compost with soil and use it
for potting plants.
As vegetative materials-mater-
ials which will rot or decompose-be-
come available, place them in layers
between layers of soil in a prepared
ROY LEE CARTER
frame or bin. Materials such as
leaves, waste from fresh summer
vegetables in the kitchen, straw and
sawdust make excellent compost, yet
are normally heaped into garbage
Choose an out-of-the-way location
for the compost area, since the heap
may appear untidy. Choose a location
that is convenient to the gardening
area and to the kitchen door. Usually,
the small area behind the garage or
between the utility room and the
neighboring fence is ideal for framing,
and constructing the compost heap.
Decomposition of the plant matter
will require heat and moisture for
quick breakdown. The summer sun
will provide the heat, but it will be the
gardener's responsibility to soak the
compost area from time to time for
A light sprinkling of fertilizer
between layers of added compost will
aid in decomposition and replace the
nitrogen used in breaking down raw
materials into compost. Animal man-
ures are rich, valuable garden soil
additives and may be used in lieu of
soil between the layers of compost.
The heat generated by the manures
will induce quick decomposition of
Some manures, particularly cow
manures, may also add undesirable
weeds to garden beds when the
compost is applied. However, the
value it offers the garden soils far
outweighs the need to eliminate
The compost should be turned
with a garden fork from time to time
to aerate and to promote even
The summer months, when heat is
present, are the best time for
decomposition and compost prepar-
ation. Usually a compost prepared in
the summer is ready for fall garden-
ing or for a spring soil conditioner and

Board of the Florida Council on
Economic Education. The announce-
ment was made in Tallahassee
Wednesday, August 3, at the Center
for the Advancement of Free Enter-
prise and Economic Education at
Florida State University by the
Executive Committee Vice Chairman,
Since its inceptionin 1975, the
Board of Gulf C
The Board of County Commission-
ers of Gulf County, Florida met May
24, 1988 in regular session with the
following members present: Chair-
man Douglas C. Birmingham and
Commissioners Billy Branch, El-
dridge Money, Nathan Peters, Jr.,
and A.B. Traylor. Others present
were: Attorney William J; Rish,
Admin. Asst. Civil Defense Director
.l Larry Wells, Clerk Benny C. Lister,
Deputy Clerk Towan Collier, Road
Superintendent Bob Lester, Mosqiito
Control Director Sam Graves, Jr.,
Building Inspector DeWayne Manuel
and Sheriff Al Harrison.
The meeting came to order at 7:00
p.Wells opened the meeting with
prayer and led the pledge of allegi-
ance to the flag.
: Upon motion by Branch, second
by Traylor, and unanimous vote, the
Board approved the minutes of May
Don Schrect appeared before the
Board on behalf of the business-own-
ers at Cape San Bias, and requested
permission to place a sign, listing the
Cape's businesses, on the County's
property at the intersection of C30 and
C30E. Branch reported that he had
been contacted by Schreck, and that
he had informed him of the Board's
new sign ordinance, but they are
requesting permission to place the
sign on the County's property, not on
theiright-of-way. Upon inquiry by the
Chairman, Rish reported that the
Board can do whatever they wish.
Traylor moved the Board allow them
to place the sign on the County's
property, as long as it is off of the
right-of-way and does not obstruct the
vieWv of traffic. Money seconded the
motion, and discussed the exact
locAtion with Schreck. Branch sug-
gested Money and Manuel go to the
site-and designate an-area that- will
be suitable to Sohreck, but will not
interfere with any future plans of the
County. Money stated the sign should
not block the view of vehicles on C30,
Schteck stated he has studied this and
does not feel it will block the traffic's
view, but he would like approval of the
location before placement of the sign.
Rish discussed that should the County
have a need for that piece of property
in the future, the sign would have to be
moved. Schreck stated that he under-
stands this. Upon inquiry by the
Chairman, Schreck stated that he is
the one who is responsible for this
project, and that he has 100 percent
participation by the business-owners
of the Cape. Upon vote, the motion
passed unanimously. Birmingham
directed the Attorney to write a letter
to Schreck, notifying him of the
requirements the Board would .have
concerning placement of the business
directory on County property. He also
directed Money and Manuel to work
with Schreck to make sure the sign is
properly located. Upon request by
Branch. Schreck agreed to leave a list
of the cooperating businesses and
owners with the Clerk for the record.
Chairman Birmingham reported
that, Donna Drew, from the Gulf
County Health Department, is at the
meeting tonight concerning the Pri-
mary Health Care Program. He also
discussed that the Board has pre-
viously given their support for the
,Primary Health Care program, and
theyhAlso gave the Department of HRS
permission to construct the facility on
the iCounty's property at the end of
KnoWles Ave., at the last meeting. He
stated, however, that there have been
soma questions from Board members
and-from citizens concerning this
program. The Chairman reported that
he a ked Ms. Drew to come to the
mee ing and he requested the Board
aski jny questions they have, and to
iron but any pi'oblems they may have
with 'this program. A copy of this
discussion is on file in the Clerk's
Ike Duren appeared before the
Board to receive an answer to his
request for a driveway permit on a
road/in Sea Shore Subdivision. Rish
reported that he believes it was
ascertained that the road was given to
the County by Mr. Costin and the
Doziers, with the stipulation that the
County would not build on it. He stated
that .he has not looked at a recent
survey, because he has not had one.
Birmingham reported that Duren is
requesting a driveway permit to
connect a road from his subdivision to
a road in the Sea Shore Subdivision.
Branch moved the Board allow Duren
to hook on to the road, provided it is a
county right-of-way. Traylor second-
ed the motion. Birmingham discussed
a letter that Duren agreed to'write,
stating he will be responsible for the
,repair of any damages he makes to
the Sea Shore road. Duren stated that
he has already given the letter to the
Board. Birmingham stated that a
copy obf Duren's letter needs to be
attached to a letter from the Attorney
which states that it is a County road.
Branch stated that his motion had
included that it must be a county
Florida Council on Economic Educa-
tion has provided various training
programs to Florida Students and
teachers to familiarize them with the
Free Enterprise system. These' pro-
grams have been designed to help the
school districts effectively meet the
legislative requirements of both the
1975 Free Enterprise and Consumer
Education Act, and the 1983 RAISE
Act. Through the efforts of the
Council, Florida has established itself
as the preerninant state in the nation
in economic education.
The basis for the success of the
right-of-way. Peters inquired about a
hold-harmless agreement. Birming-
ham stated that we do not have one,
and that he is suggesting the Branch's
motion include that the Attorney shall
write a letter stating the road is a
County right-of-way. After discussion
by Rish, Duren agreed to sign a
hold-harmless agreement, with the
County. Birmingham gave the Chair
to Money, and amended the motion to
include the execution of a hold-harm-
less agreement, and the issuance of
the driveway permit based .on this
agreement. Peters seconded the
amended motion, and it passed
unanimously. Money returned the
Chair to Birmingham. Upon vote, the
original motion passed unanimously.
Dr. A. John Erickson, of the Gulf
County Health Department, presented
a proposed listing for new fee
increases for a small-number of their
clinic services, and requested the
Board's approval. He stated that if
approved, the new fees will go into
effect on June 1, and he also stated
that the increases in fees are due to
increases in costs, supplies, and
overhead necessary to provide these
services. Upon inquiry by Branch, Dr.
Erickson stated that the increased
prices are comparable with Bay,
Calhoun, and Franklin Counties.
Peters moved the Board approve
these fee increases. Traylor seconded
the motion, and it passed unanimous-

Page 8B The Star, Port St. Joe, Fla. Thursday, August 11, 1988
draft this letter on behalf of the Board.
Lister discussed a letter from T.
Michael Tucker, C.P.A., stating he
will provide audit services for the
Board for the next fiscal year for
$24,500.00. The Clerk reported that the
amount was $21,000.00 last year, but
'the increased amount is still less than
some of the original bids received.
Rish reported that the Board has the
legal right to extend the contract if
they so choose. Traylor moved the
Board extend the contract for another
3-year period. Money seconded the
motion, and it passed unanimously.
Lister discussed a request for
early retirement from Martin B.
Davis (signed 5-19-88 dated to be
effective 1-1-88), and stated that the
Board needs to determine the exact
date of his termination. Wells report-
ed thatthe State advised Davis to put
1-1-88 on his application, but insurance
and retirement have been paid on him
through April. Money moved the
Board approve Davis' request for
retirement, effective May 19, 1988.
Traylor seconded the motion, and it
passed unanimously. Birmingham
directed Wells to write a letter to
Davis, notifying him of the Board's
decision in this matter.
Upon inquiry by Harrison con-
cerning further information about
possible beach accesses and exits at
and they feel the consent order is as
good as they can get it. He also
reported that unless the County
Complies with State regulations, the
landfill will have to be closed at the
end of this year. Upon inquiry by
Birmingham, Rish reported that the
part concerning south-end north-end
garbage hauling has been taken out of
the consent order. Upon inquiry by the
Chairman, Rish also reported that
more than one commissioner can be
appointed to a committee, without
violation of the Sunshine Law, as long
as they state when they are going to
meet. Rish stated that the Board must
either sign the consent order or file for
Administrative Hearing Procedure,
because the closure date is of utmost
importance at this time. Upon inquiry
and suggestion by Wells, Rish stated
that the Board should review the
consent order in final form, before it is
submitted. Birmingham recommend-
ed the Board accept the consent order
with the 12-31-88 closure date, but
reserve the right to review the final
consent order. Birmingham also
reported that if the consent order is
not signed, the Department of Envi-
ronmental Regulation will force the
County to close the landfill on 10-1-88.
After further discussion, Traylor
moved the Board accept the Chair-
man's recommendation. Money se-

Stumphole, and they also looked at the
likelihood of an access in the area. He
stated that he does not have a contact
person at this time because this is
Tyndall's property and he has to make
contact with them. Harrison also
inquired about the possibility of
getting access on the West side, near
the State Park, but Rish stated there
were accesses near the State Park,
but Rish stated there were accesses
there at one time, and they were torn
up so badly they had to be blocked off.
Harrison reported that he is having
more problems in that area than
anywhere else. Rish told Wells that he
feels Bill Grant and Earl Hutto can
help with this project, and requested
that he call them.
Harrison reported that a tornado
went through the Stumphole area
tonight. He stated that they have not
heard of any houses being hit, but one
lane of the road is covered with sand,
and the Road Departmet is on their
way out there to clear it.
Manuel informed the Board that
he will be out of town during the week
of June 5-10, attending the second
week of the Cathodic Protection
Mosquito Control Graves request-
ed the j,6rd give their permission for
the Mo'luito Control Department not
to haul garbage on Monday, May 30,
1988. Branch moved the Board
approved Graves' request. Money
seconded the motion, and it passed
with the following vote. Birmingham,
Branch, Money and Traylor voted
yes. Peters did not vote.
Graves reported that he is having
trouble getting the pipe in the ditch at
6th St., in Highland View, because the
mud is so boggy. He stated that Road
Superintendent Lester will not be able
to help because of their present work
load, and he just wanted the Board to
know that it is going to be a slow
Wells reported the cost for a,
repeater, encoder, and card for the
console, and the antennae, cabling,
and installation for the new fire
department radio frequency would
total approximately $7,500.00 (com-
pletely installed). Wells reported that
he has discussed, with those involved,
that the Division of Forestry does not
use a repeater, however, they use
more antennae height than we have
available (approximately 400 feet
above sea level). He stated that he
explained this so the Board would
know that there are other options
available besides a repeater. Branch
moved the Board direct Wells to
pursue a used repeater, and if he
cannot find one, the $7,500.00 repeater
should be purchased from the new
budget in October. Traylor seconded
the motion, and it passed unanimous-
ly. Birmingham directed Wells to look
for a used repeater, and if he cannot
find one, to prepare the necessary
information to be available for the
next budget year. Wells reported that
Woody Powell, with the Division of
Forestry, stated he has not found any
radios yet. Birmingham stated that
Powell had told someone at the
Howard Creek Fire Department that
the Division of Forestry had radios,
but the Board had to request them.
Birmingham directed Wells to write
the Howard Creek Fire Department,
informing them of Powell's report of
Wells presented a draft copy of
the Building Official Contract Agree-
ment for the Board's approval. Upon
motion by Traylor, second by Money,
and unanimous vote, the Board
approved the contract.
Wells discussed the Financial
Responsibility Resolution, which was
submitted to the Department of
Environmental Regulation, and he
reported that they had requested
some changes in the resolution. They
want to include the word closure, as
well as long-term monitoring and site
maintenance. He stated that he had
received the changes too late to get
them in the agenda packet, and
discussed them with the Board,
stating that since the Financial
Responsibility has already been ap-
proved, he will just need the Chair-
man's signature on the corrected
resolution. A copy of the Resolution
88-9 is on file in the Clerk's office.
Birmingham also discussed the
consent order for the Buckhorn
Landfill. Rish reported that he has
met with Branch, as well as Wells and
Mosquito Control Director Graves,
conded the motion, and it passed
unanimously. Birmingham directed
the Attorney to contact the Depart-
emnt of Environmental Regulation
and notify them of the Board action.
Birmingham then appointed Branch
and Traylor to work with Mosquito
Control Director Graves to come up
with a solution for handling the gar-
gabe on the north end of thecounty.
Upon request by Branch, the chair-
man directed Wells to write.the City of
Wewahitchka, informing them of the
Board's action concerning Buckhorn
Wells discussed a proposed con-
tract with the Department of HRS for
office space in the Wewahitchka
courthouse, stating the space will be
reduced to 638 feet, and the terms
would be for two years, with four
renewals. Wells recommended the
Board execute the contract, and
reported that a 120 day cancellation
clause is included. Peters moved the
Board accept Wells' recommend-
ation. Money seconded the motion,
and it passed with the following vote.
Birmingham, Branch, Money and
Peters voted yes. Traylor did not vote
Wells discussed a letter received
from the Dept. of Transportation,
concerning the state of repair of
certain bridges in Gulf County, which
needs the Board's attention. Birming-
ham stated that all of these bridges
are supposed to be posted with
"Travel At Your Own Risk" signs,
and that the bids for materials to
repair the bridges have been taken.
He directed Wells to write Waddell
and inform him that bids have been
taken on the materials, "Travel At
Your Own Risk" signs have been
posted, a working schedule has been
set, and the Dept. of Environmental
Regulation permits have beeh taken
care of. Upon inquiry by the Chair-
man, Wells referred to a paragraph in
the letter stating that unless .these
bridges are repaired, posted or
closed, F.H.W.A. funds in Gulf County
may be withheld. Birmingham re-
quested Wells ask Waddell, in his
letter, when these repairs must be
complete, because he knows that one
of the bridges is going to take
approximately three weeks to repair.
Rish discussed that he, Branch
and Wells have still been trying to
negotiate an ambulance contract with
Gulf Pines Hospital. He stated that the
hospital claims they are losing
$40,000.00 to $50,000.00 per year on the
ambulance service and indigent care,
and they would like to get out of the
ambulance business. He reported that.
the hospital has agreed to keep the
ambulance service until October 1, if
the Board will give them an additional
$2,500.00 to $3,000.00 per month.
Branch stated that everyone should be
considering a way to get the ambu-
alnce service in the South end of the
County taken care of, because if the
hospital. keeps it after October 1, it
will cost the County more than they
realize. Rish reported that the hospi-
tal told him that 18 percent of the calls
received in the last month have been
from Mexico Beach. Branch moved
the Board grant the hospital an
increase of $2,500.00 per month, until
October 1, to provide the same
services they have provided in the
past. Money seconded the motion for
discussion. After discussion about our
ambulances servicing Mexico Beach,
the motion passed unanimously. Bir-
mingham requested Branch and Rish
get with the hospital to see if the
Board's proposal is acceptable with
them, and upon a request concerning
Mexico Beach being serviced, the
Chairman told them to use their own
discretion in this matter.
Lister brought to the attention of
the Board an urgent memorandum
from the Florida Association of
Counties, concerning proposed legis-
lation. The Board took no action.
Traylor moved the Board adopt a
resolution requesting the Dept. of
Transportation change the speed limit
to 45 mph from the, Dalkeith Road
(381) to the Overstreet Road (386).
Money seconded the motion, and it
passed unanimously. Rish presented
resolution 88-11 of which a copy is on
file in the Clerk's office.
Traylor moved the Board pay
$750.00 and furnish the dirt, to have
Capital Asphalt, Inc. repair the
shoulders of the Dalkeith Road while
they are paving the road. Peters
seconded the motion, and it passed
Money discussed a request, from
Courthouse janitor Rex Andrews, to
take time off without pay, in order to
take his parents to Michigan. After
discussion, Traylor moved the Board

maximum leave of absence. Money
seconded the motion, and it passed
Money discussed the Board Room
renovation, and stated that the air
conditioning unit is very noisy.
Birmingham requested that the com-
missioners do a visual inspection
tonight, because the final inspection
and approval will be Thursday at 9:30
a.m. Branch stated he would have to
inspect it later, he could not do so
tonight. Birmingham appointed
Branch, Wells and Manuel to attend
the final inspection on Thursday, and
invited the others to attend if they
wish. Money moved the Board allow
the commissioners attending to ap-
prove the final inspection. Traylor
seconded the motion, and it passed
Money discussed requests he has
received for anchors to be placed on
the boat ramp pilings, for boats to
temporarily tie to, and asked if Road
Superintendent Lester could place
anchors on these pilings. Branch
discussed that nothing heavy duty
should be used, that could cause
damage to the pilings. Birmingham
directed Money to get with Lester and
let him know exactly what he wants.
The Board had no objection.
Peters moved the Board adopt his
list of regulations, concerning the loss
of seniority, into the personnel policy.
Money seconded the motion. Upon
inquiry by Branch, Rish stated that he
has a due process problem with no. 3,
and requested the Board pass this
until later in the meeting. Money then
withdrew his second, and Peters
withdrew his motion until later in the
Branch reported that Lester's
cost estimate for the purchase of
asphalt and gravel, needed to. pave
Knowles Ave. from Highway 71 to 10th
St., is $6,000.00. He stated that the

the road daily, and it is also frequently
used by the City of Port St. Joe and
Florida Power. Branch then moved
the Board allow the road department
to pave Knowles Ave., from the
County Road and Bridge Revenue
Fund. Traylor seconded the motion.
Money discussed the need for Lester
to coordinate his work schedule on
this project with the City.of Port St.
Joe, as they are planning to place
sewer lines down 10th St., in order to
avoid having to cut the newly paved
road. After further discussion crn-
cerning the quality of work the road
department does, the motion passed
Branch discussed a letter that
was in the last agenda packet from the
Highland View Fire Department
requesting a pump tanker truck. He
stated that he was approached by a
member of the fire department, who

ledged their letter for the purpose of
recording the official date of the
Branch discussed that Highway
22 is now urder the. Dept. of
Transportation's maintenance, but
the County has had work crews
cutting grass along this highway.
Birmingham stated that Lester is.
aware that it has been turned back
over to the Dept. of Transportation,
but he had obligated himself to some
jobs before he found out. After further
discussion, Birmingham directed
Wells to send Lester a memorandum
to remind him that the Dept. of
Transportation has taken back High-
way 22, and that the County does not
need to be working there.
Branch discussed a letter, from
the City of Port St. Joe, concerning
complaints they have received of
litter being discarded by 'the work
crews at the Pine Ridge Apartments
on Garrison Ave. Branch requested
the Board acknowledge the letter and
have someone to correct the problem.
Manuel reported that he took care of
this on Friday. He stated that the crew
cleaned both sides of the road today,
and that he had inspected it before he
came to the meeting. Birmingham
directed Wells to write the City of Port
St. Joe, notifying them that Manuel
talked to the crew and corrected this

ment received from citizens at Stone
Mill Creek, allowing the Board to use
their property, when the Stone Mill
Creek Road was being constructed.
He stated that these people are having
trouble with the public using their
property, and requested the Board put

Room renovation project will be

Drought May be Unlikely
Ally to Fla. Cattlemen In Future
Kunkle suggested that producers who
want to delay selling could also
consider alternative feeds, such as
leftover hay, straw from harvested
small grains or drought-damaged
corn, and vegetable crop residues.
Using broiler litter is another alterna-
tive feed possible in some areas of the
state, he said.
Delaying sales may be difficult,
but the current economic situation
seems to favor that option if a
producer has the resources to carry it
off, said John Holt, IFAS economist.
"The market during the past
three years has favored lighter weight
cattle. But during droughts when feed
prices rise, heavier weight cattle are
generally favored, and the price
premium for lighter cattle usually
shrinks," said Holt. He added that
because of some flexibility caused by
favorable forage conditions in the
state, "Florida producers have a
chance at making some money, with
beef cattle, given the facts that cattle
numbers are short and prices are
staying higher than they were in the
IFAS extension livestock market-
ing specialist Jim Simpson 'believes
that 1988 is the year for Florida cattle
producers to watch the market.
"I recommend Florida cattlemen
consider holding calves as long as
they can this fall and sell when the
drought ends and prices pick up,"
While the South is experiencing
lower-than-average rainfall, however,
the number of cattle produced is
holding steady. That means, said
Simpson, that Florida ranchers may
benefit since the economic repercus-
sions of liquidating Midwestern herds
will be felt for the next two to three
He explains that the industry is
now in the rebuilding phase of the
cattle cycle, which means that some
breeders are holding back females,
driving up prices in the short term.
Florida cattle could be in high
demand to provide the breeder stock
for rebuilding the Midwest herds, said
IFAS beef specialist Bob Sand.
"When the rains begin again, and
they will, there's going to be a demand
for cattle to replenish the Midwest
herds," Sand said.
If Florida cattle producers can
withstand possible short-term profit
losses and delay selling cattle, the
Midwest drought may prove an
unlikely ally despite higher feed
prices, say beef experts at the
University of Florida's Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sciences
Delaying cattle sales until prices
increase may be a good course of
action for the Florida producer to
consider, if there is enough pasture
for the animals, said William Kunkle,
IFAS extension beef specialist. With
the current increase in corn prices, a
Florida cattle producer could lose $7
fbr a calf, $12 for a 400 pound animal,
and as much as $50 for a yearling, he
"Of course, marketing project-
ions are never perfect and economic
circumstances vary with individual
producers," emphasized Kunkle.
IFAS researchers agree that
delaying sales isn't a simple decision
because holding calves longer re-
quires adequate pasture for grazing
and the economic resources to sustain
the enterprise until the cattle are sold.
