Landmark


Overstreet Post Office Begins
75th Year of Service

Probably Gulf County's oldest landmark, still in operation, is
observing its 75th anniversary this week, and is still going strong after all-
these years.
Gulf County is a comparatively new county, even. though the
Constitution of the State of Florida was finally agreed upon and signed here
in 1838 in the old city of St. Joseph.
Gulf County was cut out of Calhoun County in 1925 and the postoffice at
Overstreet was here to greet the designation, and had been for 11 years.
The old postoffice at Overstreet is probably the oldest building in the
county still being used to conduct business in. The present post office
building has been in operation in the same building since 1916. The post
office at Overstreet was established on August 29, 1914 on the north side of
the creek which is now the Intracoastal Waterway, with Lilla Scott as the
first postmaster.
Two years later, in May of 1916, the office was moved into its present
building and Thomas L. Patrick took over as postmaster.

A celebration at the old postoffice,building at Overstreet will be
held FridaY.aler Dnoon.at.2 p .p.m. .... ........ .. .
Mrs. Hardy said the celebration wouldn't be any big thing, but
she invited anyone interested to come by during the evening in
commemoration of the historic event.

Thomas L. Patrick served as postmaster until 1940 when he retired.
His successor was Edna L. Hardy, who is still serving in that position today
after 58 years.
Mrs. Hardy served as an assistant to her father for 10 years before
assuming the position as postmaster.
Mrs. Hardy says she has given her whole life to the postal service and
Joe to Overstreet for 20 years before a change in mail routes caused the
office to be served from another source.
Mrs. Hardy says she has given her whole life to the postal service and
said, "I loved every mihute of it!"
Not only is the old postoffice a landmark in Gulf County, it is also a
picturesque building which has served as a model on many occasions for
artists hunting a "building with character" to use as a subject for their
paintings. The photo above was made from one of those paintings.
MO


Gulf County Supervisor of Elec-
tions, Cora Sue Robinson estimated
this week that approximately 75
percent of Gulf County's 7,600 regis-
tered electors will be going to the polls
next Tuesday.
"I would like to see a hundred
percent turn-out but realistically I will
be happy with the 75 percent",
Robinson said.
Even the percentage predicted by
Robinson is a sizeable turn-out which
more than likely will be a reality
because of hot races for the Sheriff's
office and the State Senate. Consider-
able interest has also been engender-
ed in other local races, but these are
the only two which are county-wide
/and expected to be the voter drawing
cards.
"We have 7,220 registered Demo-
crats in Gulf County for Tuesday's
primary, 345 Republicans and 35
"others" ", Robinson said yesterday.
These figures will not change until

SAMPLE BALLOT
A sample of the ballot to be voted
on Tuesday is reproduced in this issue
of The Star on page 7B. The ballot
contains all questions which will be
offered on the Tuesday ballot and will
show the names of all candidates from
every 'District in the county.
Voters can vote only on the
candidates who run county wide or
who are candidates in the district in
which the voter lives.

after the Tuesday primary; since
registration books have been closed
since 30.days prior to the Tuesday
election.
Republican numbers are increas-
ing in Gulf County, having nearly
doubled since the last general elec-
tion. The "others" category has
remained constant, and Democrats
have increased in number by a small
percentage.
VOTING CHANGE
A change in precinct number and
some voting places have been made
for a small number of Gulf County
voters for this election. "When we
went to single member districts, we
had to re-arrange the districts and the
precincts to comply with the new
ruling", Robinson said. The change
moved a number of voters in the City
of Port St. Joe from District Five to
District Three. This also meant a
change in precincts, since districts


follow precinct lines.
That triangular section of Port St.
Joe between the Gulf County canal at
Highland View south to Allen Memor-
ial Way and from the west side of
Highway 98 and Monument Avenue,
west to St. Joseph Bay, are now in
District Three. Some of these voters
previously voted in precincts Eight,
Nine and Ten, will all vote in Precinct
11 at the Centennial Building, if they
live in the section which has been
removed from District Five.
Robinson said everyone who will
vote in a different voting precinct this
year has received a letter from her
office, directing them to the proper
voting place.
"If you didn't get a letter, you will
vote where you have customarily
voted", Robinson said.
BRING YOUR CARDS
The Supervisor said a new
registration system makes it manda-
tory that voters bring their registra-:
tion cards or some other means of
identification along with them when
they go to the' polls. "A drivers'
license will do", she said.
If the poll workers do not
personally know who you are, you
may be denied the opportunity to vote
if you do not have the voter card or
some sort of legal identification with
you when you go to cast your ballot.
Voting polls will be open, as they
are throughout the 'state of Florida,
.from 7:00 a.m., to 7:00 p.m.
ABSENTEE BALLOTS
Recent changes in absentee bal-
loting has also caused some confusion
in the past, according to Robinson.
I She said, "You have until the closing
of the polls on election day to get the
,ballot back to. my office in the
..-CAburthouse in order to have it
counted", the Supervisor said.
Absentee ballots may be voted by
persons unable to get to the polls on
election day. The ballots may be
picked up by a member of the family
or any party bearing a written request
from the voter. A limit of two absentee
ballots may be secured.

Speaking Tonight, Sat.


The last of several scheduled
Democratic rallies and forums will be
held tonight and Saturday afternoon
here in Port St. Joe. With the first
primary voting scheduled for next
Tuesday, the committee has sponsor-
ed a series of two rallies and three
forums in the county to allow all
candidates to appear in person before
the people and give their platforms as
well as answer pertinent questions
which might be put to them.
Selma Shoemaker, chairman of
the Gulf County Democratic Execu-
tive Committee said the forums were
a new concept in putting out voter
information here in Gulf County. The
forums were held in three locations in
both ends of the county-over the past
week in informal settings, which
allowed the audience to question the
various candidates while the rallies


were more of a prepared speech by
the candidate affair.
"We had good attendance at the
forums in Wewahitchka and at the
Senior Citizens center Tuesday
night", Shoemaker said. "We, as a
committee were very pleased with
the interest and the participation by
the audience at both forums. We're
looking forward to an interesting
meeting tonight in the High School",
she continued.
LAST RALLIES
The last of the three forums will
be held tonight at 6:00 p.m., in the
Commons Area of Port St. Joe High
School.
All candidates for the office of
Sheriff as well as candidates from
Districts Three and Five are invited to


be present to field questions from the
.audience.
The last of two rallies will be
held Saturday afternoon at 5:00
p.m., in the Florida National Bank
Park at the intersection of High-
ways 71 and 98.
Shoemaker said the Democrat
Executive Committee has reduced the
public appearance meetings of candi-
dates to the forum and two rally
concept because they feel the fewer
appearances are a more effective
medium and much less tiring for the
candidates. "Also we were running
out of Saturdays prior to the election",
she said.
Everyone is invited to attend the
forum and rally, which will both also
be broadcast over Radio Station
WJBU here in Gulf County.


TRIM Notices Reflect Tax Hike


Fire Chief Brent Etheridge, right, and


fireman Tommy Ford go through roof to get at the fire.


Fires Cause Minor Damage


-Fire caused minor damage to two homes Monday, as
two alarms were sounded during the afternoon.
According to Port St. Joe Volunteer Fire Chief, Brent
Etheridge, neither of the two alarms caused any
substantial damage. "Both could have resulted in very
serious blazes", Etheridge said.
The first alarm at 12:30 Monday, called the
department to the 143 Avenue D home of Evelyn
Underwood.
"There was a fire in the attic of the home, right over
the cook stove in the kitchen", Etheridge said. Quick
'action by the Fire Department had the fire out in just a
- few minutes.


The second alarm was sounded at 2:00 p.m., at the
home of Harry Lowry on 16th Street.
"You won't believe this", Etheridge said. "A lawn
mower caught fire!" he said.
It seems the lawn mower was parked in the utility
room of the home, beside a gas water heater. The water
heater came on and ignited gasoline fumes from the lawn
mower.
"The only damage here was to the lawn mower, but
people shouldn't leave appliances with gasoline engines
inside their homes", the chief said. "The gas operated
equipment should be stored outside or in a well ventilated
shed".


Gulf County's TRIM notices went
into the mail last Friday morning,
when Property Apprjaser Kesley
Colbert said 10,000 notices were
mailed out to property owners. "The
TRIM notices reflect the millage
levied by the various taxing boards
throughout the county and gives a
tentative picture of what the property
owner can expect his taxes to be this
year", Colbert said.
The TRIM notices are required
information by the state of Florida.
It's the responsibility of the County
Commission to mail them out and the
Gulf Commission employs the Proper-
ty Appraiser to perform the task since
he has a mailing list of every property
owner in the county.
In addition to tentative taxing
rates, the notices also give the time
and location for each taxing body to
meet for a final budget hearing where
the listed millage (or less) will be
adopted. After the TRIM notices have
been mailed out, the tax rate cannot
be increased without going through an
elaborate procedure. The rates can be


reduced merely with action of the
governing board.
Tax rates in the City of Port St.
Joe were reduced by approximately .7
percent; water management levies
remain the same as last year, but
other taxing authorities reflected a
small increase in the rate over last
year.
The column on your TRIM notice
which reflects the taxes you will be
paying this year, if no changes are
made at the public meetings, are
reflected in the third column from the
left on your notices. This column is
headed up with the statement: "Your
taxes this year IF PROPOSED budget
change is made".
ERROR IN STATEMENT
Colbert said there is one error on
the notice which was sent out. "It was
a key punch error, but people need to
ki.ow it's there", Colbert said.
The error lists the School Board
final budget hearing as being at 5:01
p.m., on Thursday, September 15.
"The meeting is to be held at 5:15


p.m., on Thursday, September 22",
Colbert said. The meeting will be held
in the Board's meeting room in the
Gulf County Courthouse.
Other final budget meetings will
be as follows:
Gulf County Commission, Thurs-
day, September 15, 5:01 p.m., in the
Board meeting room.
City of Port St. Joe, 6:00 p.m.,
Monday, September 19 in the Commis-
sion meeting room at the City Hall.
City of Wewahitchka, Tuesday,
September 20, 6:00 p.m., CST, in the
City Hall.
Water management district, Ft.
Walton Beach City Hall, Thursday,
September 15, 5:05 p.m.
Colbert said if there are any
obvious appraisal errors on the notice,
the property owners should contact
his office prior to the hearings. If
there are any complaints pertaining
to money matters on the notices, the
complaints should be filed with the
various boards at their scheduled
meetings.

How About Giving


Him A Hand!

We think it proper that all of us here in Port St. Joe stand up
and give St. Joe Forest Products company a rousing round of
applause, because they deserve it.
The Company-as they are known in Port St. Joe-has put
its resources to work in joining whole-heartedly into the city's
clean-up program and are doing a fantastic job in cleaning up
the approaches to the city and property owned by them lying
along the shores of St. Joseph Bay.
It may not be evident to some people, but "the Company"
has spent a sizeable piece of money in the work they have
already done and still have in progress. We should applaud the
fact they even responded to the clean-up program without being
specifically asked to do so, but they volunteered, put their men
and machines to work on- the project and we are seeing the
pleasing results every day.
Probably you don't have reason to ride down Baltzell
Avenue every day and glance west. It would be worth your
while to do so today as a special venture. Most of us have caught
glimpses of what has gone on as we exit the Florida Bank, to.
the post office, etc., patronizing business houses in the Baltzell
Avenue area, but it takes a ride down the entire street to
appreciate what has been done.
The southern and northern approaches to Port St. Joe are
now getting a manicure, with the most evident changes being
made in the area of the hospital and the Patton Bayou bridge on
Highway 98. The view across St. Joseph Bay from this vantage
point now makes it worth changing our regular route to work
every morning, just to catch a glimpse of the scenery on this
approach.
No doubt the eastern approach to the city will get the same
cosmetic treatment before the work is done.
Approaches to the city aren't the only areas getting a
face-lifting. Company property throughout the city is being-
cleaned out, dead trees removed, excessive underbrush
whacked away and the beauty of open areas emphasized by
removal of trash and debris.
We appreciate the response of "the Company" to this
worth-while project. We also appreciate the response to the
many, many private property owners throughout the city who
have performed the.same type transformation to their property
on a smaller scale.
Now, if we can just do as good a job on selling our people to
keep it that way and not go about littering up the vicinity again.



No Hiding Place

Are you as sick of reading about Dan Quayle and the
National Guard as we are? have you formed the opinion, as we
have, that some segments of the working press consider the
National Guard as less than a second class member of the
nation's Armed Forces? Have you arrived at the conclusion
that these same writers are describing the National Guard as
Vhe place to go if you want to be safe during war time? to be a
draft-dodger, of sorts?
Republican vice-presidential, candidate Dan Quayle said
the other day he has said the last of what he has to say about the
matter. We'll be willing to bet the media hasn't said the last it
intends to say, however. Even so, we feel they have said more
than enough and should get on to some real news of the day.
The "revelation" about Dan Quayle joining the National
Guard to escape the fighting of Vietnam has already vaulted the
Bush-Quayle team into the lead of the presidential race, when
Dukakis-Bentsen had the lead previous to the breaking of the
National' Guard story.
No doubt the media has forgotten (or never knew) it was
Guardsmen who fought the early days of World War II in the
Philippines, who defended Corrigidor and made up most of the
infamous Bataan "Death March". These are only a few of
inany instances in which the Guard has been in the front
trenches, which is what the Guard is designed to do-have men
trained and ready if shooting starts before we have time to train
regular army, put up camps, get a training program in motion
and activate a military draft.
Most people who have been associated with the Guard know
it is no place for a cop-out. Even the liberal media is beginning
to. find this out, we think.

We Almost Made It, Didn't We?


"I say Georgia, and the guy is a
gun salesman and he's on his way to
the big gun show they're having over
at Bellbuckle."
"Naw, it will be a family from
Kentucky on their way to visit their
uncle in New Orleans."
"It's one of those gangster guys
from Chicago and he's on his way to
rub out some folks in Tupelo."
We were playing the car game..
You know the one you've played it
before. We'd sit down on the railroad
trestle and guess what state the car
coming down Highway 79 was from.
"Shucks."
It wasn't a gun salesman from,
Georgia it was Mr. Newton and he
just lived down at Pillowville. The
local folks don't count when you're'
playing the car game.
We didn't get many out-of-staters
on old 79 so you'd have plenty of time,
to work up a profile on the next
"foreign" car. You also had time to
think about the end of the summer and
the beginning of another school year.,
"My brother said there's nothing,
to the seventh grade." Ricky tried to-


say it like he believed it.
"Tell you what we've never
changed classes before."
"They say you get used to it."
"Why don't they let the kids stay
where they are and make the
teachers move to different rooms?
That would cut down on the confusion
in the halls."
"Aw, they are not'going to do that,
it makes too much sense." Buddy
spoke like he was near about an ex-
pert on the seventh grade instead of
just entering it.
"Here comes a big one I say
Tennessee. It's Ray Price and the
Cherokee Cowboys on their way to a
show in Little Rock." Yogi always
guessed a country star.
"Michigan and it's headed to
Florida for the winter."
"Arkansas and they are going
home after two weeks at their
granny's."
"New Jersey and they are lost."
We'd lean forward straining to get
the first look... Kentucky, shucks, we
got stumped.
"I don't want to get old lady


Bryant for English I heard she was
murder." Buddy worried out loud. Of
course, no more than Buddy studied
- all teachers bothered him.
"Kes, are you going to play foot-
ball?"
"I reckin so I've lived through
Leon beating on me everyday foot-
ball ought to be a snap."
"Maybe you should thank Leon
for getting you ready."
"Here comes another one .
naw, it's just Mrs. McDade headin'
for Woodrow Kennon's Store. Funny
thing about the car game if you
picked the right state then whoever
you said it was and wherever you
said they were going was accepted as
the absolute gospel. For instance if
Ricky said, "California, and they are
going to try the surf at Santee Point,
South Carolina." And the next car has
a California plate we all believed that
those folks were headed to Santee
Point. Buddy would add, "They've got
the surf board folded up inside."
We accepted Ricky's call as the
truth. That's the way you played the
car game.


.



COLBERT
"You know what I don't like about
the seventh grade? It's just like star-
ting all over. And the high school is so
big!"
"We could wave down the next
car and just take off."
"Hey, right, it might be Ray Price.
heading' for Little Rock."
"None of those big tough seniors
will ever bother us," Ricky declared,
as we scrambled down the hill to the
road.
"We won't have to put up with old
Lady Bryant." Buddy was getting ex-
cited now.
"Here comes one."
"I think it's from Kentucky, pro-.
bably going to Texas."
"We could be cowboys."
"It's a pickup truck."

Labor Day Signals the Beginning of Enjoyable Activities


THE LABOR DAY week end has
arrived and it means many things to
we Americans who welcome holi-
days as a day when our employers
must pay us for doing nothing except
enjoying ourselves.
Labor Day is traditionally the
last gasp of summer and a time of
picnics, a last fling at the beach, the
beginning of the season of hunters,
etc.
To some die-hard labor leaders,
it may mean the observance of that
time a long time ago when old Sam
Gompers and his buddies established
the labor union movement. The
United States hasn't been the same
ever since. I guess this is the only
nation in the world where the
cooperation between the employers
and the labor unions have made "the
good old days" as those days still to


come: not the days of yesterday or
another age.
I don't think there are too many
or us left who would have our
children faced with dealing with the
hardships we dealt with.
My grandsons earn more today
cutting grass as a means of earning
extra money than I used to earn in
putting in a full week of work.
I frankly don't want to return to
the days when a man could feed a
family adequately on a dollar a day.
++ + ++
SPEAKING OF THE good old
days. I can't figure if Frenchie looks
older than I or if the kids think she
has a better memory.
Last week, one of the grandsons
came in the door, and even before he
went to the refrigerator, he asked,
"Is Memaw here?"
I replied, "No, I think she is at
the grocery store. She should be back


in just a few minutes."
The answer to that explanation
was, "I'll see her later. I wanted to
talk to her," and he left.
Well now that sounded myster-
ious. If the grandsons want a dollar
or two, they usually don't select one
of us over the other. If they are 'ird
trouble with their parents, either of
us will usually do to stand in the gap;
To say, "I want to talk to
Memaw when she gets back" sounds
like serious business. It was 'a
departure from the habitual grand-
son visit and made me start letting
my imagination become active.
To cut a long story short,
Frenchie contacted the grandson
during the course of the evening to
find out what he wanted.
You know what it was? He
wanted to ask her some questions
about. .you guessed it-"the good
old days!"
Those "good old days" are


getting closer and closer. The only
good old days Frenchie could tell
about happened about 50 years ago,
but they were ancient enough to
satisfy the queries of a 12-year-old
who has never spent a night without
TV, ridden in a horse-drawn wagon,
been without air conditioning, or had
to walk more than a mile, except to
do so intentionally for the exercise.
That kid didn't even know about
a nickle Coke or candy bar. He thinks
they have always cost 50 cents.

BUT BACK TO the signs of
Labor Day. 7
Labor Day doesn't just mean
those picnics, holidays, last day to
the beach, etc., it also means the
World Series is just a little over a
month away. It means it's time to
begin seriously starting to com-
mence to giving some thought to
your Christmas plans and gift list.
Labor Day means a multitude of


things. In some of those "good old
days" it meant the beginning of
school after the summer vacation. Of
course, our schools have been in
session for two weeks now and Labor
Day is one of those holidays' off from
classwork rather than the signal it is
about to begin in earnest.

ABOVE ALL, LABOR Day is a
signal the football season is kicking
off.
I see signs all about me and by
the time we pause for Labor Day
Monday, all the colleges in the nation
will have started their season and the
Sharks will have their fall jamboree
under their belt.
Friday evening, I was taking a
walk and I walked by Ralph
Roberson's house and the Seminole
Boosters were gathering for a
pre-game pow-wow.
Farther on down the street, I
passed Ferrell Allen's house (he's one


of those Gators who have been
looking for 'next year' so long, he
knows no other song) and Ferrell
(Gator) Allen has prepared himself
for the season.
You've seen on those TV shots in
the stands at games where some of
those crazy kids have painted their
faces in school colors for the game?
Well, old Ferrell has gone them one
better.
He has done a full body job in
blue and orange. No kidding. I
wouldn't pull your leg. Ferrell has a
full body job in blue and orange.
Doesn't the idea of the sight of such a
thing grab you right here?
I walked by Ferrell's house and
there was his old Jeep (which
charged up San Juan Hill with Teddy
Roosevelt) sitting in the front yard
with a spanking new blue and orange
paint job.
I guess you could also call Labor
Day the beginning of the silly season.

, Gulf Begins Study to Determine Cause of St. Joe Beach Flooding


Gulf' County authorities began
taking immediate steps to learn what
caused the recent floods at St. Joe
Beach two weeks ago, this past week,


' Letters to the Editor:


Dirty Pool

In Political

Sign Pranks
Mr. Ramsey,
I know that for a number of years
you have been in and actively
involved with politics. I would like to
ask you if you ever had the occasion in
years gone by to have one of your
children or grandchildren ask you,
what does dirty politics mean?
See, last Saturday I had a difficult
time explaining to my nine year old
son and my four year old daughter,
who after numerous hours of hard
work with their parents on Friday,
why during the night or early morning
someone stole Vince Bruner for
Florida State Senate signs. After
trying to explain the various reasons,
the main thing they understood was
that someone stole something that
didn't belong to them.
The great thing, that came out of
this was that whoeverr took them
accomplished more than what they
set out to do. We had phone calls from
people who had them stolen off of
private property and others from
people in Gulf County who are
working for Vince, that made them
just that more determined to work
just that much harder to see that we
elect an official who does not stand for
this kind of politics.
Vince Bruner is a name they are
still going to hear and see no matter
how many signs are stolen. So, to the
people in this county, help us put a
stop to this part of the "dirty politics
game" by voting on Sept. 6 for
someone who believes that if they'll
steal something as small as a political
sign, jus'. imagine what they'll do with
your tax dollars. Vince Bruner is the
right man, at the right time, for all the
right reasons.

Dear Sir, ,
It was a Federal judge, NOT "the
federal government", who handed
down the order for Yonkers, N.Y.
As yoy know, there are three
branches of government, each inde-
pendent of the other, the judiciary
being the only one Not elected by the
people. It was from this BRANCH that
Yonkers received its questionable
order.
Please correct yourself.

Issues

e

1.-Vince supports Sunshine in Government (open to the press
and to the people) Barron opposes it.
2.-Vince supports budget reform and getting down to the
business of the budget immediately instead of spending the first
half of the legislative session discussing what will be the State pie
or the State soil. Barron opposes budget reform as he does all
change which might diminish his power.
:1.-Vince supports stiffer sentences for drug dealers, more
drug education at schools (like the "Just Say No to Drugs"
program) and more money towards drug enforcement. Barron
once introduced bill that would have legalized marijuana for home
possession (1981, co-sponsored the bill with Senator Jack Gordon.
Democrat from Miami).
4.-Vince believes a State Senator should be accessible to his
constituents. Barron has never been accessible and refused to even
discuss the sales tax on services which he helped orchestrate when
his constituents tried to present their views to the contrary.
5.-Vince believes in less taxes and less government. Barron
supported the sales tax on services after helping campaign for
Governor Martinez and promising to cut $800 million out of the
General Revenue Budget.
6i.-Vince opposes gun control and believes the criminals will
always be able to obtain guns. Barron is also opposed to gun
control.
-Vince supports the death penalty for convicted murderers.
Barron's position is unknown.
8.-Vince is a strong conservationist and believes in
restocking our fish and game populations and protecting them after
their numbers are replenished. Barron has drawn opposition from
nearly every conservationist group in the State of Florida for his
stands on that issue.
9!.-Vince believes we could bring better jobs into the area by
working with the Department of Commerce to channel some of the
new jobs that 900 new people bring to this State every day. Barron
has had 28 years to do something about the unemployment problem
(the 3rd Senate District leads the entire State in unemployment).
10.-Vince has worked with young people in organizations like
the Fellowship of Christian Athletes while Barron has not shown
the commitment to the youth of this State.
11.-Vince supports affordable health care for the elderly.
reduced taxes to assist those on fixed incomes and continued
receipt of cost of living adjustments to pensioners. Barron has led
the battle to increase taxes on every occasion. (Bruner believes we
can cut fat and waste in, government).
12.-Vince is dedicated to preserving recreational woodlands
for the average person who enjoys hunting for the future. Barron
has done nothing to assist in this effort.
1:1.-Nearly all of Vince's support has come from people of
Senate District :. Whereas, common cause has estimated that 70.1
percent of Barron's contributions have come from political PAC's
and insurance companies.
f4.-Vince promises to use the power of his office for the
average working man and woman. Barron has used the power of
his office for his own personal financial gain, to protect big
insurance companies and to assist his rich and powerful friends.
Barron used the power of his office against the average working
man in Apalachicola Bay by supporting mechanical dredging in the
face of overwhelming opposition, ecological peril to the Bay and
loss of jobs to the people in that area. Barron also used his power to
shove the service's tax down the throats of the people in thei Third
Senate District and then told them to like it when he would not even
listen to their opposition against the issue.

*Pen Pal from Michigan Visits Here


What started out to be a learning
experience for two third grade
classes, which had been introduced
through a pen pal program sponsored
by the -well-known Weekly Reader
newspaper; has turned into an
exciting and unexpected adventure
for two of the participants.
Throughout the 1987-88 school
year Mrs. Costin's third graders
exchanged letters with boys and girls
in a small private school, St. Rose, in
.a.Nvery small community, Cuba City,
Wisconsin. The pals were matched at
random, and the lively exchange
began. The first letters were rather
timid and short; and, as only two
letters were required, the children
didn't really take the assignment too
seriously.
e It was exciting to watch the boys.
.and girls anxiously wait to receive the
answers ,to their letters but were
totally unprepared for the instant
interest in new people and places.
What followed truly surprised the
Port St. Joe '3rd graders. They
returned from Christmas vacation to
Sfind a surprise package all the way
from Wisconsin awaiting them. The
bok was filled with delicious Wiscon-
sif'richeeses so appropriately the
class indulged 'itself with a cheese,
cracker, and kool-aid party; the new
* friends even sent a wall sized greeting
banner.


Mrs. Costin's class wracked its
brain to come up with a reciprocal
gift, which would be, not only
enjoyable, but also representative of
our area. It was decided that Robbi
Funderburk's White City honey, pure
white St. Joe Beach sand complete
with shells and a sample of St. Joe
Paper Company's paper would "tell it
all." School ended for the summer
without the children knowing how
their gifts had been received.
Monday, Mrs. Costin's new class
had a look at a real-live Wisconsin pen
pal and his family of six.
Jeff Schrbeder, son of Thomas
and Gail Schroeder and their three
other children paid Port St. Joe a
weekend visit.
Jeff wasted no time contacting his
old pen pal, Matt Todd son of Michael
and Sonya Todd, who played hosts to
the travelers. The two families swam,
fished and ate scallops as they got to
know each other.
Monday the Schroeders' paid a
visit to Mrs. Costin's 1988 class, and
the class of Mrs. Ruth Phillips of
which Matt Todd is a member. The
family will take back to Wisconsin
beautiful Florida tans ,and happy
memories of their trip. Their parting
words were: "Please keep up the pen
pal letters so,our little June can plan
her trip to Port St. Joe in a few years
to meet her pen pal."

Coach Says Sharks


Have Size, Experience


Even after going through a
session of telling another civic club
recently the Sharks were going to
have a good season this year and
having it reported for all to see, Port
St. Joe football coach Phil Lanford is
still predicting Port St. Joe will field a
good football team this year and told
the Rotary Club so last Thursday.
Lanford isn't through ribbing the
editor for reporting his remarks from
the last informal talk before he comes
out again, in the editor's presence,
and says, "I feel good about our
situation this year".
Lanford, of course, is talking
about the 12 seniors, with game
experience, who will anchor his
defense this year. He is talking of four

and granddaughter of Mr. and Mrs.

her Bachelor Degree from Troy State

As partial fulfillment of require-
ments for her degree in music, Miss

August 3, at 4:30 p.m. Her program
included selections by composers
Bach, Beethoven, Schubert, Liszt and

ward a major in Economical Develop-
ment and minor in Computer Science.


out of five linemen who have two
years of learning experience at the
game of football. He is talking about
the 31 members of this year's squad of
.48 eligible varsity players, who have
-played varsity football in at least one
full season.
Lanford, understandably opti-
mistic after a two year building period
which saw the Sharks start from
scratch and suffer through two years
of Atlanta Brave type football. The
games were good, but the Sharks
lacked a point or two of winning after
playing good teams to a standstill.
The head coach says the 1988
season will probably see some Sharks
play both ways. "In the past we have
played two platoon to give more boys
experience in the game. We'll prob-
ably play some of our more exper-
ienced players both ways this year,
even though we will utilize our talents
to the fullest".
Lanford says he is looking at six
of 11 defensively as having consider-
able experience and 10 of 11 offensive-
ly. He is looking at a line averaging
230 pounds and he is expecting at least
three good running backs.
"Of course, injuries could erase
all of our expectations, but our depth
is such we can absorb some injuries
and still come at our opponents with
experience".
The Sharks will have a junior
varsity team of about 25 players who
will play a more active schedule this
year than they did last year.
Of course, the Shark opponents
will be big and tough this year also.

Murder Rap
. .. ,- o, i ,A ; i'** ,


The Gulf County Sheriff's De-
partment apprehended a 15-year-old
California boy wanted on a first
degree murder charge in California
last week. The boy was visiting
relatives in Wewahitchka when he
was arrested. After spending the week
end in the custody of the Division of
Youth Services, he was extradited
back to California Monday to face
charges.
According to Sheriff Al Harrison,
the youth was wanted by California
authorities in connection with the
shooting death of a teen-ager who
authorities said was helping him and
another teen-ager rob a man in East
Palo Alto, Calif. The robbery victim
resisted the three teen-agers and the'
boy allegedly fired a shot which
struck and killed one of his compan-
ions..
The boy was already being held in
connection with a July burglary of a
Wewahitchka home when the Cali-
fornia inquiry came, in, Sheriff
Harrison said. "He admitted the
shooting to us", the Sheriff said.

SDEMPSEY


BARRON

STANDS IN

HIS WAY.


Vince Bruner wants to raise taxes on our widows, retirees and low-income residents. And he
wants to raise taxes on agriculture land which would put many of our farmers out of business.
Dempsey Barron says no to higher taxes. And Dempsey says no to bankrupting farmers.
Bruner wants to tax all homes regardless of their value, but Dempsey believes people with
homes worth less than $25,000 and farmers slaving under the hot sun deserve an even break.
Dempsey has spent the past 25 years fighting to keep taxes down and bring jobs to the
Panhandle.
And every year when the tax and spend liberals try to kill the homestead exemption Dempsey
stands in their way.
Now more than ever the Panhandle needs Dempsey Barron in Tallahassee to keep people like
Bruner from raising our taxes.
Let's keep taxes low and keep people working in the Panhandle. Re-elect Dempsey Barron on
Sept.. 6 in Senate District 3.

Volunteer Work by Parents


Schools Is A Benefit to Everyone


Parents have tradition-
ally given help to their chil-
dren's schools and teachers.
However, as society has
grown more complex and
schools have necessarily as-
sumed more of a "Jack-of-
all-trades" role in trying to
educate and counsel our chil-
dren, a new variety of school
volunteers has arrived, giv-
ing an extra boost to teach-
ers and their students.
In the forefront of this
volunteer effort in Florida
are our senior citizens. An
innovative project begun in
Broward County, now du-


plicated in nearly 30 coun-
ties, has resulted in retired
lawyers, artists, mathemati-
cians and others contribut-
ing vast amounts of time
broadening students' inter-
ests and learning opportuni-
ties. Teachers benefit from
the assistance provided and
retirees re-discover a sense of
purpose.
Recognizing the need
for a well-educated em-
ployee pool, businesses are
also volunteering. In Pinel-
las County, a local business-
man pioneered a project


called "Enterprise Village."
The Pinellas Education
Foundation, in cooperation
with corporations such as
Barnett Bank, Eckerd Drugs
and the St. Petersburg
Times, is setting up a model
economic education pro-
gram. Every fifth grade stu-
dent will experience the pro-
gram to learn about the free
enterprise system first-hand,
as students manage and op-
erate individual stores in an
actual village.
The military, aware of
the potential payback, con--


tributes volunteer time as
well. Officers and enlisted
personnel at the Pensacola
Naval Air Station tutor stu-
dents in math and science,
emphasizing that students
can't expect to drop out of
school and join the modern-
day military; the armed serv-
ices need well-educated peo-
ple to work with high-tech
equipment'.

Last year in Florida,
138,000 educational volun-
teers worked 5.6 .million
hours -- a value estimated at


$55,000,000. proven ideas.


Essentially, a small
state investment and effi-
cient organization has
achieved this success.
I am delighted with
what has been accomplished
without huge outlays of fed-
eral dollars. We should be
encouraging this kind of ac-
tivity nationwide, carried out
by communities and states.
I believe the federal govern-
ment can help spread these


So, I have introduced
legislation to authorize
grants -- seed money --
which would assist schools in
training and utilizing school
volunteers. As I see it,
volunteers with a variety of
experiences and specific
knowledge can help teachers
focus students' attention and
interest and hopefully dis-
courage drug and alcohol
abuse and keep them in
school.

The Social Security Administra-
tion recently released its 1988 Annual
Report to Congress and according to
Gordon Sherman, Social Security's
Commissioner for the eight-state
Atlanta region, the document contin-
ues to affirm the program's current
fiscal integrity. "Our Social Security
system is operating on sound financial
footing," said Sherman. "The trust
fund reserves grew by about $20
billion in 1987 and we expect the
reserves to continue growing. This
reserve ensures that we will be
solvent well into the next century."
The report also highlights Social
Security's record of quality service to
the public. Some 85 percent of Social
Security clients responding "to a
survey conducted by an independent
survey described their contacts w ith
SSAas "good to very good." Sherman
I said that another survey conducted in
1987 by the Inspector General's Office
of the Department of Health and
Human Services found SSA's client
satisfaction to be even higher.
Sherman mentioned some of the
other highlights of the report. Social
Security is modernizing its claims
system by automating initial claims.
This state of the art system will be
fully operational in all field offices
nationwide by the end of this year.
Social Security has dramatically

sentative can input their request for

increased the volume of business

"Almost all Social Security business
can be conducted by telephone," said
Sherman, "and this is a more efficient
way to do business, both for our
clients and the agency." In the
program area, SSA funded 34 Work
Incentive Demonstration Programs
aimed at testing techniques for the
training and em ,oyment of disabled

process along with the processing of
their claim.
Direct deposit has been around
since 1975. Today more than 48
percent of Social Security benefici-
aried have the service. Most people
chose it as a matter of convenience. It
eliminated waiting at the mailbox for
the check to come, waiting in line to
cash a check, and the risk of loss or
theft of the check. The convenience is
especially important to disabled and
elderly beneficiaries whose mobility
may be limited. But it has also
become the choice of people who
appreciate the convenience of not
worrying about their check when they
are away from home.
Direct deposit is a more cost-
effective method for the Government.'
It eliminates the cost of storage,
handling, or postage for checks. The
Treasury Department spends only
four cents to issue a direct deposit
benefit, and about 29 cents to issue a
check.
People who are already receiving
their benefits by check can arrange,
for direct deposit simply by calling
the nearest Social Security office with
their checking account or savings
account number. Social Security can
arrange to have their checks routed
directly to their accounts.

Aquaculture Center In Blountstown


Ninetten ponds are filling
with water at the new aquacul-
ture research and teaching farm
outside of Blountstown this week,
as workers prepare for the
University of Florida facility that
opened officially on Monday,
August 29 in ceremonies on site
beginning at 11 a.m. CST.
Interim Vice President for
Agricultural Affairs G.L. Zacha-
riah will open the teaching
laboratory farm which includes
19 ponds, an office and labor-
atory. When complete, the facility
will also include a fish "raceway"
holding area.
Some 3,000 channel catfish


fingerlings were released on
opening day. The 11-acre aquacul-
ture demonstration farm, a first
for Florida, will be operated by
the Institute of Food and Agricul-
tural Sciences (IFAS).
IFAS aquaculture farm
manager Tom Wellborn says that
the farm is designed to help
Florida Panhandle fish farmers
learn the latest and most econo-
mically feasible techniques to
commercially produce edible
fish. First demonstrations at the
IFAS North Florida Aquaculture
Farm will focus on catfish.
"We will be showing farmers
best management practices for


cost-effectively producing fish
under intensive conditions. We'll
also be obtaining information on
the quality of discharge water, to
demonstrate that commercial
aquaculture will not have an
adverse impact on the environ-
ment," Wellborn said.
.Northwest Florida is the
center for aquaculture farming in
the state. More than 55 Panhandle
farmers currently produce cat-
fish on a commercial scale on
about 1,000 acres. Crayfish,
striped bass, eels and a variety of
shellfish are also produced. Esti-
mated yearly economic worth of


the catfish if $1.5 million.
Marketing of products is
central to the new farm, added
Wellborn.
"Whatever species we're
working on, as we produce and
harvest the fish, we will be
putting on demonstrations on
different marketing alterna-
, tives," he said.
The IFAS North Florida
Aquaculture Farm is located on
Highway 69, eight miles north of
Blountstown. Blountstown is
about 50 miles west of Tallahas-
see on Highway 20.


Drought Hiking Prices In Pasta to Oleos


Florida consumers may begin to
feel the effects of the drought that
exists in the mid-western states.
Projections are that soy beans, used
to make salad dressings and margar-
ine, among other products, will be
hardest hit. The Durum wheat crop,
an ingredient in pasta, will be
especially short, perhaps by 50
percent. Corn, for livestock and
poultry, sweeteners and other uses,
may also increase in price. These
S increases could be passed on to the
consumer for a five to seven percent


inflation on the grocery bill. Some
experts expect prices might go higher
if the crops keep drying up.
Even though Florida is not being
as hard hit with frying temperatures,
and we've had some rain, the
Department of Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services is doing its part to
facilitate the movement of hay to
drought-striken farmers in North
Florida and neighboring states.
A statewide Hay Hotline has been
established for persons interested in-
either buying or selling hay. The


toll-free number, 1-800-634-0689, is
staffed Monday through Friday, 7:45
a.m. to 5:00 p.m., to match buyers and
sellers.
Most livestock producers in North
Florida have insufficient pasture and
desperately need forage for their
animals. Santa Rosa, Okaloosa,
Holmes, Washington, Jackson, Gads-
den, Leon, Jefferson, Hamilton and
Columbia counties have been ap-
proved for emergency haying-grazing
on set aside land. This federal
program, administered through the
Agriculture Stabilization and Con-
servation Service consists of two
options. The first provides farmers
with feed at lower Commodity Credit
Corporation prices, plus shipping
costs. The second reimburses farmers
for a portion of the local purchase


More Vets

May File

for Claims
Recent discovery of duplicate
military medical records by the
National Archives will enable thou-
sands of World War II and Korean
Conflict Army and Army Air Corps
veterans to file for Veterans Adminis-
tration disability compensation pay-
ments.
To speed these claims, the VA has
introduced special procedures, col-
lectively called Project Expedite,
which involves a massive cross-
checking of files to determine cases
that-can .be reopened.
Using the new records, VA
benefits counselors now hope to assist
many veterans whose claims had
been denied because no record was
available to confirm medical disabili-
ties that occurred during military.
service.
Veterans and survivors unsure
whether their disability compensation
claims are affected should contact the
nearest VA Regional Office. The
toll-free number in Florida is 1-800-
282-8821; the VA Regional Office,
Atlanta, GA does not have a toll-free
number. The commercial number for
the VA Regional Office, Atlanta, GA is
(404) 881-1776.
The National Archives and Re-
cords Administration on June 15
advised the VA that it had located a
collection of computer tape containing
some 10 million Army medical
records that partially fill a gap
created when a 1973 fire destroyed
millions of military files at a federal
warehouse in St. Louis. The newly
found records cover the years from
1942 to 1945 and from 1950 to 1954.
For 'certain veterans whose
claims for disability compensation
were denied since the fire, the VA
may now be able to establish
documentary evidence to support
their claims.
The St. Louis fire destroyed or
seriously damaged some 18 million
service records, making future disa-
bility claims difficult and, in some
cases, impossible to process. The
newly found medical records were
provided to the National Archives by
the National Research Council, a
private organization that had been
engaged in analysis of Army hospital
records in the 1950s. The computer-
ized information reflects battle injur-
ies treated in Army hospitals and a
sample of hospitalization for other
reasons. The records cover personnel
who served in the Army and Army Air
Corps.

Page 2B The Star, Port St. Joe, Fla. Thursday, September 1, 1988
Dempsey Barron grew up in Millville, Florida, a paper
4 mill town outside of Panama City. His parents struggled
to raise seven children during the depths of the Great
Depression, and Dempsey had to quit school in sixth
grade. He worked at numerous jobs as a teen: at a
dairy farm, as a day-laborer, a stevedore, and in the
redwood forests of Oregon in the Civilian Conservation
Corps.
After Pearl Harbor, at age 19, Barron volunteered for
the Navy and went to the Pacific aboard the U.S.S.
Chicago. That ship was sunk by the Japanese, and
took the most direct torpedo hits of any ship in World
War II. Dempsey, a first class gunner's mate, served in
all areas of the world: the North Atlantic, Pacific, Euro-
pean and North Atlantic war zones, and left the service
as a gunnery instructor.
Dempsey worked at the paper mill and as a steel
worker until Congress passed the G.I. Bill. He took a
high school equivalency test, passed, and graduated
from both Florida State University and the University of
Florida College of Law, completing seven years of
business & law in 4 years before his benefits ran out.
Barron practiced law in Panama City, developed a
beef cattle operation in Washington County and en-
tered the Florida Legislature in 1956. Over the years,
the Legislature and the cattle ranch have grown to take most of his
time.
Dempsey thrives on the outdoor activity of farming, and he also thrives on
public service. Since being elected president of his freshman class of legisla-
tors in 1957, Barron has been recognized by secret ballot of his colleagues and the
press an unprecedented fifteen times as the most effective legislator in improving all of Florida,
and in representing the values and goals of his North Florida neighbors. He says, "I am fortunate that mV
constituents have permitted me to participate in the government of the most beautiful and challenging
state in the nation."


WHAT HAS DEMPSEY


BARRON


MEANT FOR GULF COUNTY AND ITS PEOPLE?

* He put the $25,000 homestead exemption in our state constitution, and protects it against the South
Florida press and liberals. HE HAS BEEN ENDORSED BY THE FLORIDA LEAGUE OF CIT-
IES AND THE PROPERTY APPRAISERS.
* He protects our right to keep and bear arms. HE HAS BEEN ENDORSED BY THE NATIONAL
RIFLE ASSOCIATION.
* He passed the bill to permit voluntary, silent prayer in schools.
* He believes human life is precious -- so he is FOR the death penalty for killers, and he is AGAINST
abortion. HE HAS BEEN ENDORSED BY FLORIDA RIGHT TO LIFE. '
* He has kept Florida taxes low in the face of great problems facing our state: 900 newresidents move
into Florida EACH DAY, and 70% of all illegal drugs enter the nation through Florida. YET WE PAY
NO PERSONAL INCOME TAX -- unlike our neighbors in Georgia, Alabama, and 41 other states!
Dempsey PROHIBITED an income tax in our state constitution.
* With the other members of the delegation, his clout in the Florida Legislature has meant improve-
ments for our area:


* Extra funding for our public schools, because it is more expensive to educate our chil-
dren in sparsely populated areas -- $31 million worth. Enough money to provide an in-
crease of 9% per child this year. State funds to transport children in safe school buses
to quality school buildings, with teachers and materials to do the job. HE HAS BEEN
ENDORSED BY THE FLORIDA SCHOOL BOARDS ASSOCIATION.
* Seven new prisons are under construction in our area, bringing $100 million in con-
struction jobs and spending.
* 1,200 new jobs -- the most important thing to any family -- with an annual payroll of
$28 million to help our economy. UNEMPLOYMENT IS THE LOWEST IN
THIRTEEN YEARS.
* The Catfish Research Station of the University of Florida, located in Calhoun
County, will help farmers develop a new cash crop. THE FLORIDA FARM ,
BUREAU SUPPORTS DEMPSEY, AND HE RECEIVED THE FIRST ,
EVER 'GUARDIAN OF SMALL BUSINESS AWARD.'
* Transportation: New bridges at White City and Overstreet, a traffic
light for Wewahitchka, and resurfacing of connecting roads -- $175
million for District Three in the last five years, more money per capital
than any other district in the state. HE HAS BEEN ENDORSED
BY THE UNITED TRANSPORTATION UNION.

Billy Joe Rish State Park -- only facility in the state designed for the
handicapped.


Dempsey fought to keep the Greenbelt tax break for agricultural lands,
against the opposition of South Florida.
Dempsey has KILLED the saltwater fishing license tax for five years, and
will kill it again. This helps our citizens and our tourist industry. HE HAS
BEEN ENDORSED BY THE CHARTERBOAT ASSOCIATION AND
THE FLORIDA HOTEL & MOTEL ASSOCIATION.

Fla. Power


Says Bills to


be Lower

Monthly bills for Florida Power
.Corporation customers will decrease
again, beginning October 1, because
of lower costs for the fuel used to
generate electricity. This is the third
consecutive drop in the fuel charge.
The typical residential- bill for
1,000 kilowatt-hours will go down $1.06
from the current $66.80 to $65.74.
Florida Power customers pay
some of the lowest electric prices in
the state.
The decrease has been approved
by the Florida Public Service Com-
mission. As with the other recent
reductions, this reduction is due to
lower oil prices and strong perform-
ance from the nuclear plant at Crystal
River.
In about a month, the nuclear unit
will be taken off line for maintenance
after having broken a continuous run
record as of August 15th.

the installation and operation of
interconnection of components and
power units, tuning receivers and
transmitters, maintenance of effi-
ciency of circuits, and safety proced-
ures.
He is a 1987 graduate of Port St.

The Board of County Commis-
sioners of Gulf County, Florida met
July 26, 1988 in regular session with
the following members present:
Chairman Douglas C. Birmingham
and Commissioners Billy Branch,
Eldridge Money, Nathan Peters, Jr.,
and A.B. Traylor. Others present
were: Attorney William J. Rish,
Admin. Asst. Civil Defense Director
Larry Wells, Clerk Benny C. Lister,
Deputy Clerk Towan Collier, Road
Superintendent Bob Lester, Mosquito
Control Director Sam Graves, Jr., and
Building Inspector DeWayne Manuel.
The meeting came to order at 7:00
p.m.
Wells opened the meeting with
prayer and led the Pledge of Allegi-
ance to the flag.
Upon motion by Money, second by
Branch, and unanimous vote, the
Board approved the minutes of July
12, 1988.
Pursuant to advertisement, the
Board held a public hearing to
consider amending Ordinance 87-3
(concerning beach driving permits).
Janet Beliveau discussed that she and
her husband 'own a home at Indian
Pass, and they stay there three
months out of the year. She also stated
that they pay'taxes and vote in Gulf
County, and they feel they should only
have to pay $15.00 for a beach driving
permit just like the residents.
Attorney Rish discussed things that.
can be used to determine residency,
and stated that residents are (at this
time) the only ones who can purchase
the permits for $15.00, all others pay
$50.00. After further discussion about
residency and homestead exemption,
Peters stated that their motion and
amendment to the motion was to give
the property tax payers the same
opportunity that the residents have.
Birmingham stated he feels- that if a
person has homestead exemption or
voted in Gulf County, they could be
considered a resident, but he does
oppose the amendment because he
feels that there are certain things that
permanent residents should be enti-
tled to. Mrs. Beliveau stated that they
plan to be permanent residents here in
the future. Branch stated that he was
contacted by several people who said
they are happy with the ordinance as
it is. Money stated that he has been
contacted by a couple of people, and
he also discussed that the non-resi-
dents have to pay more property taxes
than those having homestead exemp-
tion. Peters moved the Board adopt an
ordinance amending Ordinance 87-3,
Section 3, Paragraph B to give'
property tax payers the same beach
driving permit fee as residents.
Money seconded the motion, and it
passed with the following vote.
Money, Peters and Traylor voted yes.
Birmingham and Branch voted no.
Birmingham directed Clerk Lister to
write a letter to the Tax Collector,
notifying her that the Board adopted
Ordinance 88-05. A copy of this
ordinance is on file in the Clerk's
office.
Marion Hough requested the
Board have someone attend the
meeting that is to be held in
Tallahassee tomorrow (Apalachee
Regional Planning Group), and give a
presentation back to the Board. She
stated that she thinks they will be
discussing the Comprehensive Plan
and the Raffield Moratorium. She also
stated that she went to Blountstown to
meet Charles Blume (the head of the
ARPC), and discussed with him that
she is. concerned about the contract
the Board signed with them in 1977.
Ms. Hough stated that she feels we
need our representatives to bring a
report back from the meeting, espe-
cially since our local planning council
has several thousand dollars request-
ed for 1988-89 (even though we do get
reimbursement from the State). She
also requested a package of inform-
ation be put together on the local
comprehensive plan, so the public will
know what is going on. She then
discussed a letter she received from
Charles Blume concerning her citi-
zen's input, and requested that the
letter which he wrote to her be made a

part of public record. Hough then read
the first paragraph of the 2nd page of
the letter. She stated .that the
Apalachee Regional Planning Council
has the authority to override anything
this Board does (they can invalidate
actions, as well as dictate what the
Board will and will not do). She
discussed that planning Councils
scare her, that is why she is
requesting reports from the Council
meetings. She said the Board should
take a stand instead of letting them
dictate to us.
Marion Hough discussed the
Ordinance concerning placement of
signs on right-of-ways, and asked the
Board where a candidate can legally
place a sign, other than on private
property. Rish stated that he has not
researched this, but he thinks the
Department of Transportation prohi-
bits signs on the right-of-ways, and he
feels that the answer to Ms. Hough's
question is nowhere. Hough discussed
that the Ordinance states a person can
be fined or imprisoned for non-com-
pliance, and she hopes that no one
illegally places one of her signs.
Marion Hough discussed that the
Board recently approved allowing the
Democratic Political Party to hold
their meetings in the break room at
the Courthouse, and asked if they
require a hold-harmless agreement of
liability insurance from agencies
using these rooms.
Marion Hough discussed that.
Guard, Inc. has requested the Board
budget $500.00 for a person they are
caring for, and stated that Lister
might want to put their request in the
budget packet.
Hough stated she disapproved of
the thought of putting dressing rooms
or public bathrooms on the land-side
of the Beacon Hill Park. She stated


that she agrees with having portable
toilets and showers on the beach side.
She discussed the possibility of
diseases being transmitted, and the
possibility of lawsuits resulting due tor-,
sanitary problems. She stated that sh
does not agree with taxpayers' mone)
being spent on the land-side of the
park.
Hough discussed that Gulf County
will have full use of the property
underneath the Overstreet bridge,
and suggested the Board hold on to
some of their money (instead of using
it all at the Beacon Hill Park) to
develop this park, as well as others
around the County.
Larry Brollard, resident of Gulf
Aire, appeared before the Board to
discuss that a company known as
Multivision has taken over the cable
tv business formerly provided by
Essex Cable TV, and reported that
they are raising his cable rates by 62
percent. He discussed the possibility
of the Board revoking the franchise.
Brollard also discussed the Gulf
Aire Wastewater Treatment Plant,
stating that Mr. Duren graded down
the property on the front about five or
six feet and the same thing was done
at Sea Shores. He stated that the
sewage is running out of both sides,
across the front, and down into the
ditches.
Upon inquiry by Peters about the
cable tv rate increase, Brollard stated
that there are no additional benefits
added. Peters requested the Board
write a letter to Multivision, objecting
to the rate increase. Birmingham and
Rish reported that Congress passed a
bill stating we cannot regulate their
rates. Brollard suggested revoking
their franchise. Money stated that he
does not like the idea of them

of the old map room as a law library,
instead of the room behind the
Courtroom. No action was taken in
this matter.
Lister presented the Resolution
concerning vacating the plat of
Surfside Estates, Unit 2, for the
Board's approval. Upon inquiry, Rish
stated that the resolution is in order,
and also stated that he thought it had
already been signed. Birmingham
stated that one of the Commissioners
had requested that it be brought back
before the Board, after it was drafted.
The Board approved Resolution 88-12.
A copy of the resolution is on file in the
Clerk's office.
Rish stated that Bill Waddell, of
the Department of Transportation,
has requested the Board sign the
right-of-way easements concerning
the property for the White City
Bridge. He also stated that they have
assured him (by letter) that the Board
may use the property beneath the
bridge for a park. The Board had no
objection to signing the right-of-way
easements and resolutions. Branch
requested a copy of the letters be
placed on record.
Rish discussed a letter concerning
the personal claim being settled on
Martin B. Davis, and stated that they
are just required to notify the Board of
what they are doing.
Upon inquiry by Branch about
obtaining permits for the driveways
at the Beacon Hill Park, Lester
reported that the State is requiring a
drawing of what is planned for the
property on the hill. He stated that Jef
Gardner was here during the time
that the drawings were made, and
discussed that there is a problem that
has to be worked out about the
drainage on an area he has planned
for the park. He also stated that he
does not know if Gardner has been in
touch with Wells or not. Branch
requested the Board allow Wells to
follow up on obtaining the permits for
this driveway. The Board had no
objection. After discussion from the
public concerning problems that may
arise by opening a 40-acre park,
Birmingham directed Wells to pro-
ceed with obtaining the permits.
Money brought to the Board's
attention a letter from the White City
Senior Citizens Center Director, Son-
dra T. Ballew, inviting the Board to
attend the official opening of the
Center. He stated that it will be held in
the Fellowship Hall of the White City
Baptist Church on August. 1, 1988,
from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.
Money discussed the need for the
Board to acquire land to be used as a
basin for small boats during bad
weather. He discussed that the White
City Park basin is supposed to be for
temporary docking only, and stated
that he would like for someone to
check into possibly getting a grant to
acquire some property inland for that
purpose. The Board had no objection,
and Birmingham directed Wells to
look into this matter.
Peters stated that he and Money
have looked at and approved of the
new addition at the Health Depart-
ment, and moved the Board give them
the go-ahead on the construction
project. Money stated they have alpo
requested the County's assistance in
moving a palm tree. Upon discussion
and inquiry by Birmingham, Mosqui-
to Control Director Graves stated he
has a piece of equipment that can be
used to move the tree. Money
seconded the motion, and it passed
unanimously. Birmingham directed
Graves to move the tree for them as
soon as he can work it into his
schedule.
Peters discussed that he has been
opposed to the construction of the
park at Beacon Hill from the
beginning, and stated that he will
always oppose it because of the
crimes and expenses that can be
involved. He also stated that he does
not agree with spending the taxpay-
ers' money there, but he is only one
person.
Rish stated that the hospital has
contacted him concerning prisoner
bills that have accumulated since
their contract has expired, and
requested the Board's assistance in
paying them, Wells presented a
suggested procedure that the Board
might want to use in handling these
bills. He stated that the original bills
totalled $10,290.43, and after he
deleted items such as the ambulance
(and then. reduced it by 50 percent),
the balance came to $4,427.90. He
reported that per the Sheriff's Depart-
ment, it is possible that one of these
inmates may have insurance. Branch
moved the Board adopt the procedure
for future use. Traylor seconded the
motion, and it passed unanimously.
Wells recommended the Board pay all
of the bills except the one on a
Franklin County prisoner, and the one
on the prisoner that possibly has
insurance. He stated that the bills
have been given to the Sheriff's
Department for their review. Branch
moved the Board pay the bills, with
the exception of the two mentioned by
Wells. Traylor seconded the motion.
Upon inquiry by Birmingham, Wells
stated that the total, without those two
bills, is $3,600.90. Upon vote, the
motion passed unanimously. A copy of
that procedure is on file in the Clerk's
office.
Birmingham brought to the
Board's attention a letter from the
Public Defender's Office and a letter
from the City of Mexico Beach. He
stated that the Board already knows
the gist of these letters, but requested
they read over them.
Birmingham directed Graves to
get with Wells and answer the letter


from the Department of Environmen-
tal Regulation concerning the moni-
toring wells, and provide a copy of
their answer to the Board members.
Birmingham discussed the min-
utes of 11-12-85, when a road was put
on the one-year waiting list (per
Ordinance 83-6). He stated that the
road does not have a name, but it is
the one on Methodist Hill (on the left
just across the bridge). Peters moved
the Board accept full maintenance of
this road, and Traylor seconded the
motion. Upon inquiry by Branch,
Lester stated that there are no
problems with this road. Upon vote,
the motion passed unanimously.
There being no further business,
the meeting did then adjourn.

Main Dish Salads Are

Summer's Hottest Suppers
BHH e^. ; m-^~~


Main dish salads are summer's best beat-the-heat meals. Partially prepared
the night before or in the cool of the day, they provide, refreshing relief on
hot, lazy days.
For change-of-taste appeal, "dress up" your summer salads in spicy
Southwestern style. All it takes is a little imagination and a jar of
picante sauce, a salad standby for over 40 years. Blended into a vinaigrette
or stirred into mayonnaise or sour cream, it wakes up salads with lively, spicy
flavor. On its own as a drizzled-on dressing, it adds garden-fresh flavor and
just five calories per tablespoon.
Try it in summer-easy Southwest Salad Stack-Up, then experiment with
your own salad creations. Select mild, medium or hot picante sauce, as you
prefer, and watch your cool summer salads become hot menu items.
