It was a perfect day for an
election here in Gulf County Tuesday
and the electors reacted to the perfect
day by sending an estimated 70
percent of its registered voters to the
polls.
Supervisor of Elections, Cora Sue
Robinson, said Tuesday night 5,255 of
Gulf's 7,565 registered voters stepped
up to the voting machines to cast their
ballot.
There was no definite set of
leaders in any of the local races at
the end of the day Tuesday when
machines were opened and the total
vote revealed. The 361 absentee
ballots could have changed the
leaders in each race but as the finals
were announced late yesterday
afternoon the results were not
changed.
There will apparently be a
run-off in every county race in
October. The only contest which has
an outside chapce of being decided
by the absentees is the Sheriff's race,
but chances of this happening are less
than remote.

challenger Vince Bruner in Tuesday's
election, which saw the Fort Walton

lead out of his home county to hand
him the election late Tuesday night.

county and other eastern panhandle

Barron had -only a 48 vote
majority in Gulf County with heavy
majorities in precincts Five and Eight

stay neck and neck with the Senate

Barron, the incumbent, polled
2,253 votes in Gulf County with Bruner
close behind with 2,205 votes. A total

City Considers Help


for Local Hospital

Want to Boost the Continued


Recovery of
The City Commission decided
tentatively Tuesday night to get
involved in the operation of Gulf Pines
Hospital in an advisory capacity "to
protect our interest in the institution",
as city attorney, William J. Rish put
it.
Mayor Frank Pate recommended
to the board that the City become
involved in a manner to help the
hospital continue on its road toward
recovery and fiscal solvency. "The
hospital is doing better now than it has
in years, so far as financial soundness
is concerned, and we want to see it
continue to recover", Mayor Pate
said. "We need the hospital here and it
appears as if our intervention will be
the push to help its recovery", Pate
continued.
Pate advised the city become
involved by lending it money to pay
off old bills which have been hanging
over the operation for years. "They're
making it now on their own", Pate
said, "But these old bills hanging over
their head-some years old-are just
holding them back".
"I think this company which is
now operating the hospital is the most
capable of any who have had it since
the city sold out", attorney Rish said.
He pointed out that in addition to old
bills hampering the operations of the
hospital, Medicare has come up with a
new payment schedule, which will
cause the hospital to delay receiving
their Medicare payment for 15 days.
"This is just the same as the hospital
lending Medicare $150,000 from now
on at no interest", Rish said.
Mayor Pate said an agreement


Medical Center
could be worked out to lend the
hospital money it pays the city each
year and take a first mortgage on the
institution and its license to secure the
loan. "The way they're going now,
we'll get it back" Pate said.
The Commission agreed to pro-
ceed with the proposal, with a
constant examination of each step of
the agreement as negotiations pro-
ceed.
VOICES OPPOSITION
Wade Barrier and Glenn Combs
appeared before the Commission with
Barrier voicing objections to the
manner in which a contract was
awarded for putting a new top on the
STAC House.
Clerk Alden Farris told Barrier
the job was advertised in The Star as
required by law and bids received.
Barrier countered that invitations
to bid were mailed out to roofers in
regard to the job, but general
contractors were not notified of the
work to be done.
Mayor Pate countered the work
on the STAC House was a roof job and
Clerk Farris said all local roofers
received an invitation to bid.
Barrier said the biggest percent-
age of work in the project was putting
a hip roof on the building. "The actual
roofing work was a small percentage
of the entire project", he contended.
"I feel like the general contrac-
tors were slighted", Barrier said.
Clerk Farris said the specifica-
tions for the job were on file in the City
Hall and any licensed contractor
could have entered bids. The Clerk

JOSEPH MARTIN

Joseph Martin Temporarily

Takes Over Post Office Duty
Joseph Martin, of Eglin Air Force Base, took over the Port St. Joe Post
Office last week as officer in charge. Martin said he will not be serving as
postmaster in Port St. Joe, but will be a caretaker for the office until a new
postmaster can be appointed.
Former Port St. Joe postmaster, Myra Shiver has left the position here
and returned to the Grand Ridge area.
Martin has been in the Eglin position for the past five years and has
served with the postal service for the past 18 years and has been stationed
throughout Florida.
Martin, his wife and son are currently making their home in Mexico
Beach. The Martins have two other children, one of whom is a student at

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 8,1988


Third Done

As an Alabama preacher we happen to know is prone to say,
"We shucked that corn almost down to the cob" Tuesday, didn't
we?
What was a pack of hopeful politicians running for office is
now diminished quite a bit, but those left running are at it just
as hard as they were last week.
Arid, they will be at it until October 4 when the whole cob
will be shelled down, ready for the final shucking on November
8.
So, if you were feeling glum this morning because you
would have no more local politics to second guess or talk
about,cheer up, there's a whole month of this bi-annual activity
left withus.
For those of you still in the middle of this thing called
election, we wish you all well and we'll feel for you when the
days are hot and you must be out and about.
If politics were as active and as intense during the entire
season as they were here in Gulf county last week, we'd all be a
nervous wreck by the time it was over.
We paid a courtesy visit to the Dempsey Barron thing in the
park Thursday afternoon and asked him, "aren't you glad the
rat race is about over?"
Dempsey replied, "I sure am and by this time three days
from now, it will be over".
When these few lines were written, it wasn't over yet. We
just stuck that little observation in to reveal that probably both
Barron and Bruner are relieved this morning, they don't have
to go out hand-shaking, regardless of which one won.
The race those two men ran and the ground they covered
was almost unbelievable to keep up the tempo they maintained
all through the campaign.
There's no doubt about it, whichever man was destined to
win must have wanted it mighty bad to have endured what they
endured.
There are still others out there, though, who are just as
intense about winning, even if they aren't making the noises
Barron and Bruner made. Their little corner in this political
picture is just as important to us here at home. So, don't let your
political interest wane just yet. We voters still have a job to do
on October 4.


Nearing Century Mark
We're wondering if there is another post office in the nation
which has been in existence for 75 years and has been managed
by just one family (two postmasters) in all that time, except for
two years?
Really, the little office at Overstreet has achieved a mark
we'll be willing to wager no other post office in the land has.
There are offices in the nation which are older, of course,
since that one was established in this century, but we doubt
there is one in the same building, or has the same family
operating it after 73 years.
Mrs. Hardy, the present postmaster and the daughter of
Thomas L. Patrick, who took over its operation in 1916, is still
on the job and is proud of the part she has played in the history
of the tiny community of Overstreet for these many years and
for her faithful carrying out the duties of postmaster.
It was interesting to see the several representatives of older
families of this and Calhoun counties who showed up Friday
to mark the anniversary of the office. Some of the families
represented pre-dated even the Overstreet post office as
residents of Gulf county.
Some attempts have been made in the past to dismantle the
Overstreet office, but the area is making a comeback with
population in recent years and should be able to save the old
station from abandonmenf:by the head mailman in Washington,
D.C.
As for Mrs. Hardy, she probably won't be able to spend
more than another 50 years oi so in the Overstreet office, so
maybe she should begin breaking in a successor for her job so
this part of Gulf county's history can be maintained into the
future.


Hunker Down with Kes


The baseball field at Pelham had
changed more than I thought it
should. Of course, it had been almost
20 years. I still remember the last
time I played here. I near about got
killed. Pelham's giant first baseman
was trying to score on a short fly to
center. As usual I was catching and
Akin's throw and Goliath arrived at
the same time. Goliath didn't know
how to slide. He just ran over me.
Knocked me all the way to the
backstop. While I was still in the air -:
one Pelham faithful yelled, "If he
lands on his feet I'll give him a 9.5."
When the birds quieted down and
I came to, Jimbo Hughes was picking
me up, "You O.K. Kes?"
The memory made me instinc-
tively reach for my side still check-
ing to see if my ribs are in place after
all these years.
"You ready to go?" Jan brought
me back to the present.
Now, Jan was a study. She didn't
like me back when I was going to the
university and she didn't like me now.
But her parents are two of the finest
people I've ever met. Yes sir, if you

Dear Editor:
"We are often tossed, and driven
on the restless sea of time." These are,
the first lines to We Will Understand It
Better By and By. I have heard quite
frequently our young people who say
there is nothing much to do in Port St.
Joe, job wise, and there is not much to
offer for the young, but I also notice,


ever get by the University of the South
and Sewanee, Tennessee, you look up
John and Peggy Hankins. John took
care of the financial end of Sewanee's
entry in the Mountain-Valley League.
He also took up the tickets, helped
cook hamburgers, made sure the field
was ready, made out the schedule and
drove us to the games. Man, he could
also get upset if we lost.
As soon as the college baseball
season ended I joined Sewanee's team
in the Mountain-Valley League. We


played in places like Pelham, Cowan,
Elora, Sherwood, Monteagle and it
seems like we played a game or two in
Estill Springs but it's been so long ago
I'm not sure. Near bout every town
held a baseball team in those days.
We had guys like Jim Foster, who
could really hit, and Joe Tate, Speedy
Speegle, Chap Wasson and the
Johnson brothers, Walter Wilder and
David Paschal and a host of other
good guys. We didn't always win but
we did have fun.

What memories. We stopped by
the field in Cowan. I can't believe it
had taken so long for me to get back.

'ETAOIN SHRDLU."


,By: Wesley R. Ramseymi


We Have A Visitor Who Came Bearing Gifts to Our House


TALK ABOUT YOUR visitors
who'come and stay awhile, we have
had some of this kind at our house for
the past couple of months.
Somebody's black, bobtail Manx
cat came to our house, took up
residence on the carport and set in to
stay awhile.
As a matter of fact, the bobtail
Manx cat misinterpreted mine and
Frenchie's reaction to her coming to
our house as being a whole-hearted
welcome and decided to present us
with a family to show her appreciation
for our taking her in which we
hadn't you understand. The relation-
ship started out more like a she-
barged-right-in-and-made-herself-at-
home type of deal if you know what I
mean.
First the bobtail, black Manx took
over residence in the carport, then as


she began to get an occasional bowl of
frisky kitten or tender vittles, she
surmised (all by herself) that it was
all right for her to set up housekeeping
in our utility room, esconched back of
the freezer and sleeping in the dirty
laundry basket on occasion.

WE DIDN'T PAY much attention
to the new resident at our house; even
after the occasion of a litter of one
black kitten-which had a tail-we
sort of felt the cat would go back home
wherever that was, after the kitten
arrived.
We were wrong.
The cat stayed around and the
black offspring with the tail is still
around, too.
The kitten is as wild as a Panther
Swamp bobcat. If anyone gets close to
the kitten, which is nearly grown now,
it takes off like a streak and finds a
place to hide.


So far as I know, that kitten has
never been touched by human hands.
I nearly had it one Saturday,
morning. Frenchie had put down a
pan of tender vittles for the cats to eat
and the kitten was so absorbed in his
tender vittles he didn't see me come
up behind him and bend over. I gently
placed a forefinger between the
kitten's ears and started to stroke
down his back.
That cat shot out of there like a
rifle ball and didn't stop until he was
safely under Walter Duren's ligus-
trum -hedge.
Still, that cat hasn't been touched
by human hands.

RECENTLY THE MOMMA bob-
tail brought in a bluebird she had
killed in the back yard. That was
almost the straw which got that cat:
taken off to unknown places.
The momma cat sensed we were


put out by her behaviour, and lo and
behold, to make amends, she dropped
another litter of solid black kittens-
three bobtails and two with tails.
I think you are with me to a man
in this thing. This cat factory has got
to stop.
. Somebody's Siamese tom cat
comes-visiting to my yard every so
often. Putting the resident visitor.
Manx black bobtail and the occasional
visit of the dark brown Siamese
together leads me to the conclusion
that the five new visitors are half
black Manx and half dark brown
Siamese.
The three little bobtails are
females and the two with tails are
males.

.WHEN IT BECAME evident the
momma cat was just about to foal and
the full moon was waxing, Frenchie
and I started keeping the door to the


utility room firmly shut so the cat
couldn't get inside to deposit her
expected litter.
Evidently we weren't diligent
enough in our efforts to keep the door
closed, because the momma got inside
somehow, made her way to her old
haunts behind the freezer and there,
in the semi-sterile surroundings which
hadn't been swept out in some time,
deposited her latest brood.
We knew they had come because
old momma wasn't so hefty and she
would stay out of sight for sometimes
a day at a time.
One day I heard the little buggers
and brought them out in the open.
Momma cat has realized she no
longer has any need for secrecy so she
operates her nursery right there in the
carport, behind my table saw and sets
the table for all five off-spring to eat
right in the back door where we either
have to step over or on the momma


and five greedy little kittens.
I hope I can catch momma in time
between this litter and the next, to hie
her around to Dr. Nelson and cut off
this multiplication table before it adds
up anymore of these black, bobtail
half Manx and half Siamese visitors.
I'm not hard hearted, you under-
stand. These cats eat and fare just as
well as if they had been invited to
come to our house. I'm not going to
put them out in the cold. As a matter
of fact, if it ever gets cold again, I'll
probably prepare them a warm place
to stay.
But, enough is enough.

THE POINT OF THIS piece is, if
there is anyone out there who would
like to have a small black half Manx,
half Siamese kitten come to your
house to visit, feel free to give us a
holler.
Long or bobtail!

Plenty to Do .

A FRIEND OF MINE is always complaining because he has nothing
to do. His major complaint is that there is no "intellectual stimulation"
for him in this town.
If you are anything like myself, you have more to do than you can get
to, in two lifetimes. Admittedly, most of the things I am faced with don't
take a vast amount of intellect, but they do require some intensive
planning to accomplish them over a period of years.
With this article I challenge my friend-he knows who he is-to
assume my obligations and complete them within a two year period. To
aid him in his decision I am listing a few of the obligations I have facing
me, most of which I have managed to avoid for several months.

-Find someone to complete the job of replacing the tile in our
bathrooms. You would think that would be an easy job, but just try it.
--Cut the vines that have grown up the fence around the dog pen.
When I went out to feed the dog yesterday, one of the vines had wrapped
around the dog's neck during the night and he was almost dead.
-Find a way to provide for my children's college education. It takes
all I can do to put two through high school. I have one in college now that
is suffering from malnutrition. This is an immediate problem.
-Have the boat repaired so it will get across the bay without
"conking" out on us. Everybody needs to have the experience of owning a
boat. It will humble, you in this life.
--Finish all the work I plan during one day. It doesn't matter how
well I plan or how good my intentions are, I never seem to be able to
complete everything I need to do in one day. My carry-over list grows.
longer each day.
-Kiss my wife and children and tell them I love them each day.
Forget kissing the wife and concentrate on the children. I usually miss
one or more of them each morning before going to work.
-Handle all the "junk" telephone calls I receive at home and work
each day. Someone has mistakenly put me on a list of people with money.
No matter how many times I tell them I can't afford to contribute, take
free trips or accept another credit card, they keep calling.
-Take the dog to the vet. I can't,.for my life, remember my parents
taking our dog to the vet each week. Our dog requires as much medical
attention as our children did and it's just as expensive.
-Make ends meet at the end of the month. This is an old problem that
has existed since before I was married. Like the national deficit,
however, it continues to grow.
-Devise a plan to enhance my poker and golf games. It seems the
more I play and practice, the worse I play. It's getting increasingly
harder to call a bet with the children's lunch money.

NOW, DEAR FRIEND, that should keep you busy for a year or two. If
it's not enough, then take a stroll to my office; I have another list I can
start you on immediately.
Nothing to do and no "intellectual stimulation". Hogwash!!!


S... from Page 2


As I was purchasing gas at one of
our local convenient stores, there was
a line of approximately eight or more
people waiting their turn at the
machine, one of these people was one
of our leading citizens who professes
S to be a Christian. How shameful for us
~- td speak out against young people in
drugs, alcohol, and such when we who
are supposed to be examples of
Christianity, deal in those things
which are just as sinful as thiers. Sin
can not be categorized, the Bible says
all unrighteousness is sin, and the
wages of sin is death. I am not
returning to Port St. Joe to start a new
movement, but a better movement,
I'm teaching and preaching the same
God the Father, Jesus the Son, the
Holy Ghost the Comforter. I am not
worrying about opinions, only God's
will and direction.
Young people, you have a good
point in' not having as much job
placement as needed in our city, but
potential is .ot found in drugs,
alcohol, night life, and sex, it's found
in Christ Jesus, our personal savior.
In the word written in II Chronicles
7`14, the.Bible reads, "If my people,
which are called by my name, shall
humble, .themselves, and pray, and
seek my face, and turn from their
wicked ways; then will I hear from
heaven, and will forgive their sins,
and will heal their land. That's God's
word, and that's God's promise, and
it cannot lie. When we do what God
says, he will do what he says. I've
been just what most of you are, a
gambler, night club operator, small
time marijuana user and seller,


alcoholic, and womanizer. Just re-
cently, in an effort to close some
personal business in Panama City, I
had to stop by the Safari Night Club, to
seek a friend who had some heavy
tiding in the deal. For just a short
While, 'IT *saw' the" 'dik atmiospbere,'
heard the laughter; saw the joy and
happiness on many faces, heard the
thumping sound of the disco beat
(please don't judge me) and said to
the man I found, thank God I'm free.
There is a new thing, different
from the pot of 1980 in my life. It's
called crack, a known, proven des-
troyer of the mind, body and spirit. It
attacks the family at home, the
associates on the job, and innocent
citizens of our community. We sell it
among ourselves and smoke it among
ourselves, but yet we put the failure
on the shoulders:of the city.
Consider your own ways, and find
the real problem, you and then seek
the real solution, Jesus. You will find
God will keep His word. It is time to
awaken out of your fast lane sleep,
and seek the only begotten son of God.,
I hope we can continue to search'
for new life for this ministry needed in
this city. God loves you, and wants to
set you free. He is the way, the final
and only way to life eternal.
But I am a witness and what he'
has done for me, He can do also for
you. If you must be tossed and driven
on the restless sea of time, make sure
the waves in your life are not Satan
the Devil. For those waves land on the
shores of Hell, an awful place to go.

Wants Street Name Changed


Dear Wesley:
S It is beyond my understanding
that the street at the beach named
Santa Anna will not be changed to
Santa Maria because it is too much
trouble.

Dear Mr. Ramsey,
Thank you for your editorial on
the movie "The Last Temptation of
Christ."
You are indeed a Bible loving
Christian man.
Sincerely,
Anna Chewning


Don't the people in Gulf County
know the story of the Alamo? Santa
Anna massacred some of our coun-
try's most outstanding heroes such as
James Bowie and David Crockett in
1836.
Leaving Santa Anna as a street
name is the equivalent of Adolph
Hitler Avenue or Benedict Arnold
Square.
I beg the good people of Gulf
County not to allow this shame to
continue to exist. It is a wrong so
easily put right with a minimum of
effort.
"Remember the Alamo!"
Most sincerely,
Margaret Key Biggs

Local Winner of Tri-State Grand Prize


A local man, Charles Osborne, was the happy winner of
the grand prize given away last Saturday In the IGA For-
tune and Food Bonanza. Thirteen stores from the tri-state
area of Georgia, Alabama and Florida participated in the
Bonanza in which thousands of dollars worth of groceries
and cash were given away in the scratch off contest. Local-

county-wide question on the ballot.

Incumbent A.B. Traylor emerged
from a field of four as the leader with
former commissioner Jimmy Gort-
man a close second. This picture could
change after the absentees are
counted, since Frank Whitfield is still
in the running with his 238 votes.
Ralph Fisher was a distant fourth
man in the race with 74 votes.

Kesley

you've been and some old friends
you've made along the way it's often
hard to find your way back. I
remember Bambi hitting a pop fly
home run here to win-
"You ready to go?" The only
reason Jan "volunteered" to help me
find the old places was because her
parents were working. The problem
between us started over a basketball
game. She played high school basket-
ball when I first started coming over
to Mr. John's and Miss Peggy's to get
away from the college for a while.
And Miss Peggy always had
something to eat. And they knew how
lonesome I was. I'd never been away
from home and they gave me a family
when I needed one. I tell you they are
very special people.
It. wasn't long before Jan and I
were going head to head at that old
basketball goal in the back yard. I'd
beat her everytime. And the more I'd
win, the more she'd kick and push and
claw I tell you, she's just like her
father about that winning and losing.
I was going to challenge her to a
game when we pulled into the yard
but somebody had taken the old goal
down. I probably got a break there I
don't play basketball like I used to. Of
course, I'd never let her know that.
When Jan left that evening she was
very polite, "Kes, we look forward to
having you come back in another 20
years."
I had a great visit with John and
Peggy and early the next morning I
strolled through "downtown"
Sewanee. I paused in front of Cotton
Terrill's Texaco. It's now a Phillips
Station and Cotton is gone. The Bank
of Sewanee has moved down to the
valley. And you won't believe this -


microwaves and two videocassette recorders.
In the photograph above, Mr. Osborne is si
ing $6,000 in cash from Danny Kennedy, mai
Port St. Joe store. Looking on is Hal Keel
manager. Mr. Osborne had his choice of a Ch
pickup or the cash, and he chose the $6,000.00.


(From

ing vote totals in Gulf C


to seek re-election.
Again absentee ballots could
change the picture with Edward
Creamer leading with 315 votes.
Former commissioner Walter Gra-
ham ran in second place with 292 and
Gregg Burch is still not out of it with
his total of 202. Carl Goodson of White
City polled 175 votes.
In the District Five commission
race, with incumbent Eldridge Money
declining to run again, Al Ray had a
narrow lead with 360 votes. Don
Parker was a close second with 353
votes. Ray Ramsey was third man in
the balloting with 259 votes and
mathematically still in the race.
Dottie White came in fourth with 117
votes.
SCHOOL BOARD RACES
It was a battle between incumbent
Paul Sewell and James Hanlon four
years ago for this position. This time
around, it appears as if it will be a
battle between incumbent James
4,l-Hanlon and challenger Paul Sewell in
the second primary.
Hanlon was a narrow leader
Tuesday, with 388 votes and Sewell
came in with 317. Debra Wood polled
222 votes and Robert Keel marked up
58 ballots. Woods is still a possible
winner after absentees are counted.
In School Board District Number
Four, incumbent Waylon Graham led
the pack with his 349 vote, but he must
face-more than likely-challenger
David Byrd in October. Byrd rolled up
330 votes. Oscar Jones, third man in
the race-again--can be the second
primary challenger after all votes are
counted, since he polled 263 at the
machines Tuesday.

then asked for an up-to-date list of
contractors in the city from Barrier,
who was representing the Gulf County
Builders at the meeting.
Mayor Pate said there was no
intention to slight anybody. "The
project was advertised as required by
law and the specifications were
available. "We would much rather a
local firm get the job, but we had only
one local bid and it was higher than
the successful bidder".
FILE COMPLAINT
The Commission voted unani-
mously Tuesday night to write letters
to the U.S. Postmaster General and
Florida congressmen concerning the
poor postal service being received in
Port St. Joe and the seemingly
unending parade of post masters in
the local office.
"We have had a steady stream of
post masters in the local office ever
since Chauncey Costin retired a few
years ago", Pate said. "We never had
all these problems prior to that time,
either", he continued. "The service is
terrible" he continued.
All the Commissioners agreed
with Pate's assessment of the situa-
tion and agreed to express their
concerns with the points of manage-
ment suggested by Pate.

candidate for the U.S. Senate. Mack
had 53 Gulf county votes and his
opponent, Robert Merkle polled 35.
Democratic candidates for the
U.S. Senate followed the lead
throughout the state, with Bill Gunter
receiving the huge lions' share to grab
the lead. Gulf gave Gunter 2,397 votes.
Only Buddy Mackay managed more
than a thousand votes, with his 1,141 to
come in second in Gulf. Former
governor Claude Kirk was third with
322; Patricia Frank was fourth with
214 ballots. Dan Mica polled 58 and
Fred Rader received 67 ballots.

and Jeffrey Latham 21. The Demo-
crats favored Ken Jenne who polled
1,337 votes. John Vogt was close
behind with 1,268 and Walt Dartland
brought up the rear with his 557 votes.

Overstreet A Busy Place When Office Began


When the post office at Over-
street was established 75 years ago,
it served a bustling community of
some 1,000 workers, according to
Mrs. Edna Hardy, present postmas-
ter.
"There were six turpentine
stills here in the Overstreet back in
those days, and they worked about
1,000 people", she said. That made
Overstreet the largest settlement,
by population, in Gulf County at the
time.
"We had two stores here in
Overstreet at the time, plus the
turpentine stills all had commisar-
ies to serve their laborers", Mrs.
Hardy said. "I was just a little girl
at the time, but I remember it well,
also the moving of the post office
over into our store in its present
building".
Mrs. Hardy and the post office
were congratulated Friday after-
noon, as the Overstreet community
and other well-wishers came by to
chat a while with Mrs. Hardy and
her sister, Mrs. Annie Cook. Joseph
Martin, officer in charge of the

MAIL SERVICE DIFFICULT
Mail service was a little dif-
ficult to maintain back in 1914.
when the Overstreet office opened.
"I remember we used to get the
mail brought in and taken out by
boat from Panama City for a long
time", Mrs. Hardy said. The
Intracoastal Waterway had been
dug through the area in 1909, so the
community of Overstreet had a
water highway to Panama City,
where rail connections with the
north were available and steamboat
connections with the coastal cities.
"After a long time, we were
designated to operate a courier

It hasn't been all that long since

Overstreet to Highway 71 was paved
in the very late 1940's, but before
that time, you really had to want to
go to Overstreet by land in order to
get there. Up until the road was'
paved, the easiest way in and out
was by boat, even though the school
bus made the trip every day.

Overstreet A Busy Place When Office Began


When the post office at Over-
street was established 75 years ago,
it served a bustling community of
some 1,000 workers, according to
Mrs. Edna Hardy, present postmas-
ter.
"There were six turpentine
stills here in the Overstreet back in
those days, and they worked about
1,000 people", she said. That made
Overstreet the largest settlement,
by population, in Gulf County at the
time.
"We had two stores here in
Overstreet at the time, plus the
turpentine stills all had commisar-
ies to serve their laborers", Mrs.
Hardy said. "I was just a little girl
at the time, but I remember it well,
also the moving of the post office
over into our store in its present
building".
Mrs. Hardy and the post office
were congratulated Friday after-
noon, as the Overstreet community
and other well-wishers came by to
chat a while with Mrs. Hardy and
her sister, Mrs. Annie Cook. Joseph
Martin, officer in charge of the
Port St. Joe postoffice, brought

MAIL SERVICE DIFFICULT
Mail service was a little dif-
ficult to maintain back in 1914.
when the Overstreet office opened.
"I remember we used to get the
mail brought in and taken out by
boat from Panama City for a long
time", Mrs. Hardy said. The
Intracoastal Waterway had been
dug through the area in 1909, so the
community of Overstreet had a
water highway to Panama City,
where rail connections with the
north were available and steamboat
connections with the coastal cities.
"After a long time, we were
designated to operate a courier
route between Overstreet and We-

wahitchka for a while and later on
from Overstreet to Highway 98.


When our courier would get to
rHighway 98, he would meet the


service truck between Port St. Joe
and Panama City for transfer of the
mail. The road into and out of
Overstreet at the time was sand and
the mail couriers didn't want to
come service us. We had to go to
them", she said.
It hasn't been all that long since
handling of the mail in and out of the
timber harvesting community be-


came comparatively easy. The
highway from U.S. 98, through
Overstreet to Highway 71 was paved:
in the very late 1940's, but before
that time, you really had to want to
go to Overstreet by land in order to
get there. Up until the road was'
paved, the easiest way in and out
was by boat, even though the school
bus made the trip every day.

The Sharks begin their 1988
football season Friday night, as they
travel to Wewahitchka to take on their
cross county rival, the Wewa Gators.
The Sharks are going into the
season returning 17 starters from last
season's roster, 10 on offense and
seven defensive players, according to
third year head coach Phil Lanford.
Ken Monette, Eric Langston,
Eddie Ramsey, Phillip Nedley, John
Parker, Mickey Lewter, Russell Mar-
tin, Nicholas Rolack, Russell Cherry,
Blaine Adams, Bill Ramsey and Cody
Thomas will all returrnto the offensive
unit. Leonard Ray, Ivey Henderson,
Darrell Tull, Willie Smith, Matthew
Taylor, Terry Quinn and Collins
Hamilton will all return to. the
defensive unit.
The team's 49 man roster will be


anchored by 12 seniors who Lanford
hopes will provide the leadership
quality needed to compete in this
year's 10 game schedule.
There are still several areas of
concern, according to Lanford. "Nag-
ging injuries have slowed our pro-
gress on the offensive line", Lanford
said. "If the problem persists we
could end up having to play some
players both w iys on offense and
defense, to help shore up our offensive
line".
The kicking game is another
unusual question. Senior Kevin Cox
currently looks as though he will
handle the punting chores according
to Lanford, with sophomore Bobby
Williams leading in the battle for the
kick-off duties. Williams will also,,,
handle extra point and field goal

Gators Hope to Regain the County Trophy


The Gators will open their 1988
grid season Friday night, hosting the
Port St. Joe Sharks in a battle for the
Gulf County championship trophy.
The travelling trophy went to the
Sharks last year and the Gators will
be trying to get it back Friday.
Wewahitchka's "Gators" have
only three starters returning from last
year's squad which went all the way to
the second round of the state play-offs,
where they were defeated by Jack-
sonville University Christian 40-13.
Last year's Gators had gone for 10
straight wins after a season opener
19-0 loss to the Port St. Joe Sharks.
Wewahitchka head coach Dennis
Kizziah says, "This is definitely a


rebuilding year. We'll be re-building
for the next two years".
Kizziah has three of his starters
from last year back for the 1988
season. Returning starters will be
Michael Myers (5-10, 170, SO) at
tailback and cornerback; Darryl
Lister (6-0, 175) linebacker and
offensive guard, and Travis Melton
(5-11, 165) playing defensive end and
center.
Others rounding out the Gator
squad this year will be five other
members of last year's squad, who did
not start for the Gators but who have
some game experience. Others re-
turning with some game experience
include Ray Stripling, Scooter McLe-

Yowell, a 210 pound linebacker,
played with the Sharks last year, but
has moved to Wewahitchka and is
expected to see considerable action
with the Gators this year
Others making up the Gator's 19
man roster this year will be Philip
Griffin, Tony Muina, Brian Harris,
Sharmon Miller, Jasmine Baker,
Matthew Birmingham, Phillip Nun-
nerv, Toby Ake, Chris Morgan,
Charles Fortner, and Dallas Jones.
Kizziah says the main strength of
his team this year will probably be the
defense. "We have some people that
like to hit". Four Gators have some


game experience in defense including
Myers, Lister, Melton and Yowell.
Kizziah says his team will run the split
four defense.
Kizziah isn't expecting to be in
competition for the state champion-
ship again this year but says his small
squad will give a good account of
themselves.
After losing 17 players from last
year's squad, the Gators are taking
the field Friday night against the
Sharks with four seniors, none of
whom started last year.
Kizziah is in his fifth year of
coaching the Gators.
He is assisted by Charles Fortner,
Don Rich and Larry Mathes.

The Sharks battled the Bay High
Tornadoes Friday night and lost, 8-7,
in the second sudden death overtime.
The Sharks and the Tornadoes took
the field first in the four-team jam-
boree at Tommy Oliver Stadium.
In the sudden death overtime
each time has four downs on the 10
yard line in which to try and score.
The Sharks had first possession in
overtime, but fumbled the ball on the
second play. Bay took over on the ten,
but also was plaqued with a fumble on
second down, which was recovered by
Russell Martin.
On, first and goal from the ten,
Kevin Cox passed to Ken Monette who
was tackled on the /2 yard line.
Russell Cherry bulled the ball over to
score the touchdown. Bobby Williams'
extra point was good to pat the Sharks
up 7-0.
On Bay High's first play they
scored on a 10 yard run. The Sharks
apparently had blocked the 'extra
point kick, but the holder faked, and
ran the ball in for two points, giving
Bay the 8-7 victory.
Coach Phil Lanford said that five
starters were out with nagging small
injuries and did not see action in the
jamboree. "The coaching staff felt

I have also learned that most of us

that we can see the solutions.
There is no way to measure the

knowledge no county in Florida owns
it. own mental health facility, al-
though some of them provide up to 25
percent of the operating costs of the
mental health program within their
borders.
Your community mental health
facility, Gulf County Guidance Clinic,
is operated by responsible citizens

to the state and this community for
the maintenance and operation of the

payments made by clients. Last year
only $2,894 came as a grant from the
Gulf County Commissioners. When
you think about it, that is less than the
commissioners paid one psychiatrist
for Mr. Melvin's defense.
More than three fourths of that
$400,000 will be returned to the
community through wages, repay-

growing conditions. The most import-
ant thing is to grow vegetables you
and your family like to eat.
The first consideration in plan-
ning your garden is where to put it.
You want it fairly close to your house
so it's handy to work in. You want it
near an outside water faucet, so that
irrigation isn't a problem. But, the
thing you really want to be sure about
is proper light. If possible, locate the
garden so it gets full sunlight all day.
Unfortunately, few of us enjoy that
luxury so we have to choose between
morning sun and afternoon sun. In.
any case, plant fruiting crops, such as
tomatoes, corn, cucumbers and me-
lons where they will get the most sun.
In some cases you'll also have to
protect your crops from nearby trees
and shrubs. Tree and shrub roots will
compete with vegetables for nutrients
and water. So to give your crops the
edge. dig a trench about one and one
half to two feet deep all around the
garden. Line one side of the trench
with roofing paper or plastic film, and
fill it in again. This will form a barrier
against the roots of nearby landscape
plants.
Of course, good soil is important.
Unfortunately. as backyard garden-
ers, most of us have to do the best we
can with the kind of soil we have.
Before you plant the first seed's or
transplant. you need to think about the
vegetable varieties you will choose to
grow. Of courseY,,ou could walk into
your garden center and buy whatever
vou see. but remember, vegetable
varieties differ in quality. They vary
in both disease resistance and climate
adaptability factors which can be
vitally important. To find out which
varieties are recommended for your
area. consult a copy of Extension
Circular 1014. The Vegetable Garden-
ing Guide". Your garden center may
have a reference copy. or you can
check with your County Extension
Agent.

MINUTES... Gulf County Commission


The Board of County Commis-
sioners of Gulf County, Florida met
August 9, 1988 in regular session with
the following members present:
SChairman Douglas C. Birmingham
and Commissioners Billy Branch,
Eldridge Money, Nathan Peters, Jr.,
and A.B. Traylor. Others present
were: Attorney William J. Rish,
Administrative Assistant Civil De-
fense 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 9:00
a.m.
Money opened the meeting with
prayer and led the pledge of alleg-
iance to the flag.
Upon motion by Traylor, second
by Branch, and unanimous vote, the
Board approved the minutes of July
21, 1988 special meeting, July 25, 1988
special meeting, and July 26, 1988 -
regular meeting.
Citizens from Howard Creek
appeared before the Board to request
that the County put down a pump and
well, to provide water for the Howard
Creek Park. Traylor moved the Board
approve this request, and Branch
seconded the motion. Upon inquiry by
Branch, Traylor stated the money for
this project should come from the
Parks & Improvements Fund. Upon
vote, the motion passed unanimously.
Citizens from Howard Creek
appeared before the Boad to request
that the County pay the electricity bill
for the Howard Creek Park. Upon
inquiry, they stated that the bill has
been running between $7.00 (for a
normal bill) and $15.00 (when they use
the flashing sign). Birmingham stated
that the Board would study this and
give them an answer at a later date.
Nell Mitchell, resident of St. Joe
Beach, discussed that the minutes of
May, 1988 have not been published in
the newspaper. Upon her inquiry,
Lister reported that all of the minutes
have been furnished to the newspap-
ers for publication. Birmingham
stated that the Board has not made a
decision to stop publishing the min-
utes, and he stated he is sure that if
there is a mix-up, it can be resolved.
Peters then discussed that he had
noticed several weeks ago that there
were minutes that had not been.
published. He stated that he discussed
this with Deputy Clerk Collier, but did
not bring it before the Board because
he was assured it would be taken care
of. Upon inquiry by Ms. Mitchell,
Peters stated she can obtain a copy of
the minutes from the Clerk's Office at
any time.
Nell Mitchell, resident of St. Joe
Beach, appeared before the Board to
object to the single-member voting
districts, stating she feels it is a
violation of Constitutional rights.
Branch stated that the single-member
voting district was court-ordered, it
was not a decision of the Board.
The meeting then recessed for a
short break.
Lister reported that the South
Gulf County Volunteer Department
has overspent their budget in the
amount of $1,241.46, and have request-
ed that the Board amend their budget
to cover this amount, stating they
would pay the bills they incur for the
rest of this fiscal year. Upon motion
by Money, second by Branch, and
unanimous vote, the Board approved
the request and the budget amend-
ment. A copy of the amendment is on
file in the Clerk's office.
Upon motion by Peters, second by
Traylor, and unanimous vote, the
Board approved a budget amend-
ment, in the amount of $5,856.44, as
presented by Clerk Lister to cover the
costs of piping the ditch on 6th St. in
Highland View. A copy of that
amendment is on file in the Clerk's
office.
Lister discussed a response from
Circuit Judge Harper, concerning the
two court orders for payment involv-
ing Inez Melvin in the case of the State
vs. Clyde Melvin. He stated that the
Judge said the order for $454.00 (for
witness pay for Inez Melvin) would
have to be paid, and the one for $351.67
(to Ramada Inn for Inez Melvin's stay
during trial proceedings) was ap-
proved by the State Attorney's Office,
therefore it appears that it will have to
be paid, also (even though the Board
did have a good point about her
owning a house in Gulf County).
Traylor moved the Board pay these
two orders, and Peters seconded the
motion. After discussion, the motion
passed with the following vote.
Birmingham, Branch, Peters and
Traylor voted yes. Money voted no.
The Board then discussed that they all
object to paying these orders, but they
have no choice.
Lister presented the June, 1988
Medicaid billing, in the amount of
$3,479.93, for the Board's approval.
Upon motion by Peters, second by
Money, and unanimous vote, the
Board approved payment of the
invoice.
Lister presented a court order for
payment in the case of the State vs.
Clyde Melvin, in the amount of
$1,300.00 to Henry Barksdale. Branch
moved the Board pay this order, and
Peters seconded the motion. The
motion passed with the following vote.
Birmingham, Branch, Peters and
Traylor voted yes. Money voted no.
Lister presented a court order for
payment in the case of the State vs.
Clyde Melvin, in the amount of $880.00
to Dr. T. Wayne Conger and $2,917.60
to James D. Larson, PhD. Upon
motion by Peters, second by Traylor,
and unanimous vote, the Board


approved payment of this order.
Birmingham directed' Lister to keep a
running total of what the Board pays
in this case.
Lister presented an invoice from
Baskervill-Donovan Engineers, in the
amount of $5,063.00, for engineering
services on the Buckhorn Landfill
Closure Plan through July 15, 1988.
Wells stated he has reviewed and
approved the invoice. Traylor moved
the Board pay this invoice. Money
seconded the motion, and it passed


with the following vote. Birmingham,
Branch, Money and Traylor voted
yes. Peters voted no.
Lister presented an invoice from
Baskerville-Donovan Engineers, in
the amount of $990.00, for engineering
services on the Gulf County Local
Comprehensive Plan through July 22,
1988, and he stated that it has been
reviewed and approved by Wells.
Upon motion by Peters, second by
Money and unanimous vote, the Board
approved payment of this invoice.
Lister discussed a letter from Tax
Collector Taylor, requesting payment
for a refund to St. Joe Natural Gas
Company, due to their double pay-
ment of 1987 taxes, in the amount of
$538.85. Upon motion by Branch,
second by Peters, and unanimous
vote, the Board approved this pay-
ment.
Lister reported that the Tax
Collector is requesting to be relieved
of the 1987 Tax Roll, stating she has
provided the recapitulation and, at-
tached list of errors, omissions, and
double assessments, which must be
signed by the Commissioners. Upon
motion by Traylor, second by Money,
and unanimous vote, the Board
approved signing the recapitulation to
relieve the Tax Collector of the 1987
Tax Roll. Birmingham directed each
commissioner to read and sign the
recapitulation after the meeting.
Lister presented a proposed po-
licy concerning pay raises for em-
ployees that are partially paid by
another agency. Branch moved the
Board adopt the policy, and make it a
part of the County's personnel policy.
Traylor seconded the motion, and it
passed with the following vote.
Birmingham, Branch, Money and
Traylor voted yes. Peters voted no,
stating he needs time to study it and to
confer with the Attorney. A copy of the
policy is on file in the Clerk's office.
Wells reported that the Northwest
Florida Big Bend Health Council is
requesting a reply concerning the
County's representative to the Coun-
cil. Money moved the Board reappoint
Clarence Monette as Gulf County's
representative, if he is willing to serve
again. Peters seconded the motion,
and it passed unanimously.
Wells discussed a request, from
the School Board, for the County to
removed the brush and trees that are
obstructing the right-of-way on the
Jehu Cemetery and Roberts Ceme-
tery roads. Birmingham stated the
brush obstructs the view of the school
busses at these intersections, and
requested Lester take care of clearing
the areas. He also stated that if there
is a problem with property owner's
permission, Lester should contact
Oscar Redd, and he will take care of
it.
Sheriff Harrison discussed an
alley in Oak Grove, stating that on
June 11, 1985 the Board agreed for the
alley to be closed between the hours of
8:00 p.m. and 8:00 a.m. He stated that
since there is not an ordinance, his
department cannot enforce it, al-
though there is one person that
continues to use the alley at all hours
of the night. Harrison requested the
Board adopt something that is en-
forceable. After discussion, Money
moved the Board pass an ordinance to
close the alley between 8:00 p.m. and
8:00 a.m. Branch seconded the motion
for discussion. Upon inquiry by
Branch, Rish stated that an ordinance
cannot apply to just one alley, it would
have to be for all of the alleys in the
County. Branch then withdrew his
second. The motion died for lack of a
second. Upon request by Harrison,
Rish stated he would talk to the
individual that continually uses this
alley late at night. Birmingham told
Harrison that if he has a specific
recommendation concerning this mat-
ter, he may bring it back to the Board
at any time.
Harrison presented a letter he
received on April 11, 1988, concerning
liability for the Franklin County
prisoners that are being housed in the
Gulf County jail, and he stated that
the Attorney may need to draw up a
hold-harmless agreement for Frank-
lin County to sign. Rish stated he
would draw up an agreement.
Harrison discussed a situation
where a doctor that was on duty at
Gulf Pines Hospital was about to
refuse a patient from the jail because
the pre-existing bills had not been
paid. He also reported that Lister told
him the bills have been paid, and he
requested the Board advise the
hospital that they pay the medical
bills, not the Sheriff's Department, so
they will not refuse future patients.
Birmingham directed the Attorney to
write a letter to the hospital to inform
them that the Board pays the medical
bills, and requested that he check into
this matter because due to extenuat-
ing circumstances, this incident
should not have occurred.
Rish presented a letter, as
requested by the Board, stating that
no other funds of the Board of County
Commissioners of Gulf County, Flor-
ida can be available for the payment
of this. assignment, other than those
funds coming from Raffield Fisheries.
Birmingham directed the Clerk to
make copies of the letter for Marion
Hough and Jean Arnold. Ms. Hough
discussed the Raffield loan, and upon
her inquiry, Lister stated that to the
best of his recollection, Raffield
Fisheries received approximately
$630,000.00. Ms. Hough then discussed
the paperwork and match funds
involved with the loan with the
Federal Government and the Apala-
chee Regional Planning Council, and
stated that she does not agree with


signing agreements to make some-
thing appear that it happened, when in
fact it did not (matching funds). Rish
stated that everyone involved knew
exactly what was going on, and they
wanted to put those people back to
work. Birmingham stated that this
Board does not control what the rest of
the Country does. Ms. Hough stated
that she does not have a personal
vendetta with Raffield's, she just feels
that there are certain loan procedures
that the people should be aware of.
Birmingham stated that the Attorney


has again, in writing, informed the
Board that they are not liable to pay
back this loan with County funds.
Upon inquiry by Ms. Hough, Rish
confirmed that the County will have
approximately $330,000.00 left in their
bank account, after the $335,000.00 is
paid to the Apalachee Regional
Planning Council.
Traylor moved the Board pay the
electricity bill for the Howard Creek
Park. Money .seconded the motion,
and it passed unanimously.
Upon inquiry by Branch, Lester
reported that dirt is the holdup on the
paving project on Knowles Ave. He
also reported that Wells is supposed to
write a letter to the Paper Company,
but he has not heard anything back
yet. Lester stated that they have the
fill dirt, it is the base material that
they need. Branch requested Birming-
ham ask Wells about this when he
returns to the meeting.
Upon inquiry by Branch, Graves
reported that they are almost finished
with the framing for the basketball
court at the White City Park, they are
putting up the boards and wire today.
He stated that the rain has been
holding them up, but as soon as it
dries off they will pour the cement.
Upon inquiry by Branch, Wells
reported that he contacted Mr.
Gardner concerning the driveway
permits for the Beacon Hill Park, and
he mailed him some plans. He stated
that Gardner is in West Palm Beach,
and reported he has not heard
anything back, so he does not know if
Gardner has mailed the plans to the
Department of Transportation. After
discussion, Branch moved the Board
request Ralph Rish, of Baskerville-
Donovan Engineers, apply for the
driveway permits for the Beacon Hill
Park. Money seconded the motion.
Branch then requested that Rish get
with Road Superintendent Lester,
after he obtains the proper permits, to
get the project completed. Upon vote,
the motion passed unanimously.
Upon inquiry by Branch, Wells
stated that. he has contacted Mr.
Nedley, of St. Joe Paper Company,
who will have to get permission for the
additional dirt they are requesting for
paving Knowles Avenue. After discus-
sion about proceeding with the project
as far as possible until they hear
something ba6k, Wells stated that if
the Road Department has the sub-
base material, they are not waiting on
anything.
Peters discussed a curve on the
Howard Creek road, just before
coming to the residence of Charles
House stating the speed limit there is
55 mph. He discussed that there will
be a school bus stopping there to pick
up kids, and requested a reduced
speed zone in that area (35 mph).
After discussion about "School Bus
Stop Ahead" signs, Lester was
directed to put signs in this area, to
notify vehicles coming around the
curve that they are approaching bus
stops.
Upon request by Peters, Birming-
ham requested Wells write the
Overstreet Volunteer Fire Depart-
ment thanking them for their letter to
the Board.
Peters discussed a letter from the
Health Department, stating that they
have had a new telephone system
installed, and their old telephones are
available if the County needs them.
Lister reported that Ms. Montgomery
said they are the same type tele-
phones that are being rented for the
Courthouse offices, and it would save
the County some money if they use
their old telephones, and turn in the
ones that are being rented. Peters
requested the Board take these
telephones and suggested Joe Beard-
en handle this project. Birmingham
stated that the telephones need to be
placed in the offices specifically under
the Board, if they will interchange
with what they already have. He
directed Wells to work with Bearden
on this.
Money discussed an accident that
occurred at the entrance exit of the
parking lot between the overpass and
Highway 381, and requested the Board
write the Department of Transporta-
tion, asking them to check into this
area to see what can be done to
alleviate some of the problem.
Birmingham suggested that, since it
is the paper company's parking lot,
the Board write them first, to see if
they have a solution or suggestion.
Birmingham directed Wells to write
this letter to the paper company.
Money discussed an area on
County Road 30 (next to Treasure
Bay) where people are pulling off and
parking on both sides of the road. He
stated that there is no area available
for parking, but parking on the sides
of the road causes too much congest;
ion and it is very hazardous. He then
moved that the Board place "No
Parking" signs along the curve where
they are parking. The motion died for
lack of a second. Birmingham re-
quested Money and Lester inspect this
site for a possible solution, and bring a
recommendation back to the Board at
the next regular meeting.
Money again discussed the acci-
dent between the overpass and
Highway 381, stating that crow bars
had to be used to get a person out of a
vehicle because the Jaws-of-Life were
not operable. He requested the Board
write the Hospital Ambulance
Service and ask them to make sure
they keep the Jaws in good operating
condition. Birmingham stated it is
important to have someone crank up
the Jaws-of-Life on a regular, basis,
and make sure all of the parts are in
working order. He directed Wells to
write this letter.


Money stated he appreciated the
Department of Transportation ans-
wering the Board's requests for "No
Passing" zones, and he stated that the
Road Department needs to do the
appropriate work. Branch stated he
does not agree with the Department .f
Transportation's recommendation be-
cause Highland View is a hazardous
area, although they do not seem to
think so. Money discussed re-addres-
sing this issue with them, and
Birmingham stated they also need to


re-address the State Road 71 and
Roberts Cemetery Road issue. Upon
motion by Branch, second by Money,
and unanimous vote, the, Board
agreed td write a letter to the
Department of Transportation, asking
them to reconsider these issues.
Birmingham directed Wells to write
this letter.
Marion Craig, a resident of St. Joe
Beach, appeared before the Board to
discuss Santa Anna Street, and he
stated that he feels the name of the
street is very improper. He reported
that Santa Anna was the General at
the Battle of the Alamo, and he
ordered men, women, and children to
be killed, thus he does not deserve to
have a street named after him. He
requested the Board change the name
of the street to Santa Maria. Branch
moved the Board advertise to hold a
public hearing to change the name of
Santa Anna St., at St. Joe Beach, to
Santa Maria St. Peters seconded the
motion, and it passed unanimously.
Birmingham directed Deputy Clerk
Collier to advertise to hold a public
hearing to consider this on August 23,
1988, and to notify the people that are
living on Santa Anna St.
Birmingham discussed passing a
resolution, and sending it to the
President of the United States,
opposing the bill passed by Congress
to repatriate $20,000.00 to each
interred person of Japanese descent
He stated that although some of the
intent of the law is justified, he feels it
is unfair to the Americans who fought
and died in World War II. Birming-
ham then gave the Chair to Money,
and moved the Board adopt a
resolution to this effect. Traylor
seconded the motion. Upon inquiry by
Branch, Birmingham reported that
Congressmen Grant and Hutto voted
no on this bill, and he requested that a
copy of the Resolution be forwarded to
them. Upon vote, the motion passed
unanimously. Money then returned
the Chair to Commissioner Birming-
ham. Birmingham directed Rish to
draw up this resolution.
Birmingham discussed com-
plaints he has received about political
signs being placed on the right-of-
way, and asked what the Board would
like to do concerning this matter. He
stated that he told the citizens who
complained that the Board has never
done anything about this in the past.
Peters discussed that the Board is
opposed to litter, not the signs, and
stated that it is very important that
the candidates take down their signs
after the elections, whether they win
or lose. He then suggested that the
Board write the Democratic Party
Committee, requesting they notify the
candidates to remove their signs after
the elections. Branch stated that the
Department of Transportation has
made several candidates move their
signs off of the right-of-way, and he
discussed the County's recently adopt-
ed sign ordinance, stating they should
not have it if they are not going to
enforce it. Peters stated he feels the
ordinance was mainly pertaining to
business signs, and he does not oppose
the candidates placing their signs
temporarily, as long as they remove
them. Birmingham directed Wells to
write the letter to the Democratic
Party Committee.
Birmingham discussed an em-
ployee that has been out of work for
five or six years (due to disability),,
who is apparently not coming back.
He discussed that a position is being
held open for him, and it is holding
other employees back from being
promoted. Birmingham requested
Peters look into this matter on the
basis that if he has made a settlement
and is not coming back, he needs to be
dropped from the Road Department's
employee list, and if he is going to be
out for a long-term (15 or 20 years),
they need to take a look at the
personnel policy to see if a change
needs to be made.
Birmingham reported that two
companies are working on proposals
to take over Gulf County's garbage
business completely. He stated that
the Board could accept all or part of
either proposal, and he also stated
that there will be a special meeting
this week to allow the companies to
present their proposals.
Birmingham discussed that he


has received many complaints about
the new cable television rate increase.
He stated that he met with a man
concerning this, and requested that
they maintain the former basic
package for those already connected
to cable, and use the changed package
on new subscribers. He also discussed
that the Board cannot control the
company's rates, but they do control
the franchise. Branch requested the
Board not sign the agreement with
U.S. Cable Television Group until the
Board has some satisfaction in this
matter. Birmingham also discussed
that there are places in the County
where their cables are not buried, as
specified in the utility permits. He
stated that it is possible that there
may be another cable company
willing to move into this area and
provide the service. Birmingham
directed Wells to draw out the areas,
on a County map, that the Company is
franchised in, and to get with Manuel
to find out what areas of the County
they are in violation, in per the utility
permits. He also directed Wells to
write an official letter, requesting
they maintain the basic package they

Every day, you're called upon to give an
Olympic performance. You're expected to
type perfect documents. Get them done in
record time. And the most difficult task of
all-making revisions.
That's why Xerox designed its typewriters to
make changes easy. Whether documents are
long or short. Whether the changes are minor
or extensive.
In fact, in a recent study, 8 out of 10 secre-
taries preferred a Xerox Memorywriter for
making changes over other top electronic
typewriter brands-even IBM!
Plus, Memorywriters can improve the


had in Gulf County. The Board had no
objections. Peters discussed that Gulf
Cable, in the City of Port St. Joe,.
offers the basic channels and the.
movie channel, and each person has:
the option of whether or not to get the
movie channel. He stated that he feels.
the beach company is being unfair for
having such a high rate increase. ,h
Lister discussed a letter from the
Health Department, requesting the-
Board allow them to delete all'
tangible personal property items'
under the value of $200.00. Upon
inquiry by Birmingham, Lister report
ed that effective October 1, the:
amount of inventoriable' property.
items will increase to $500.00 and
over, but the Board has the option to
stay at $200.00.
Rish stated that there are many,
expendable items under $200.00 that
still need to be listed. Upon discussion,:
the Board agreed that they are
satisfied with the inventory process as
it is. Birmingham directed Lister to
write the Health Department, notify-
ing them of the Board's decision.
There being no further business,
the meeting did then adjourn.
