Week; Escaped Felon Caught


City, DOT, Making Repairs of


Several Decrepit City Streets
Some streets in Port St. Joe are receiving some asphalt.
corrective attention to their condition during the past + + + + +
several days, making repairs to several spots which .
have- eroded into terrible condition. MONDAY, THE DOT moved in to look at a situation
.. which has existed at the intersectionnnf Fifth Street andt


Between showers, and at times, heav4 rains, Brock
SPaving Company of St. Joe Beach has IOeen putting a
new capbof asphalt on 18th and 19th Streets and a portion
1 -ofl'ighth Street in a program instigated by the City
Commission.
The City was able to secure $25;000 from the Gulf
County Commission to have the paving work done. All
three streets were coming apart and had to be
resurfaced or they- would(' disintegrate beyond-any--
repair. Neither of the streets are heavily travelled, but
have been in place for a long while.
Brock is finishing up the project this week, if the
weather continues to allow his crews to put down the


Florida Department of Transportation crews do a
little exploration surgery at the intersection of Fifth


Long Avenue for some time. The concrete paving has
broken up in the spot and portions of the paving have
sunken, causing a very rough situation at the busy
corner.
DOT representative, Freddie Branch of Port St. Joe,
said it appears, from exploration work done Tuesday,
that a drain pipe under the paving has broken, and
settled, causing water to erode the base under the paving
and the paving to breakup. Branch said DOT crews will
pTo1ably be in Port St..Joe next weelk soimeime o.
excavate to the problem and either repair or replace the
offending drain pipe.
When the. actual repair work is started, the
intersection will probably be closed to all traffic.


Two strong arm robberies were
reported in the Port St. Joe area
during the past week, according to
county and city law enforcement
agencies, with sums of money taken in
both instances.'
One person, John Roland Wood, of
Highland View, is being held in the
Gulf County jail for one of the
robberies and faces several years in
prison for his crime and the circum-
stances surrounding the robbery.
Here in Port St. Joe, the manager
of Popeye's Fried Chicken, said he
was working in the fast food outlet at
about 7:40 a.m., prior to opening,
when two black men burst through the
locked back door and demanded
money from John Brennan, manager
of the store. Brennan was at his desk
in his office at the time' of the
intrusion, working on his books.
Brennan said one of the robbers,
who he described as about.six feet tall,
clean shaven and wearing a -white
ST-shirt, threatened him with a knife
and demanded money. Brennan said a
second man, described as being about
five feet eight inches tall with no
facial hair, wearing a blue western
Shirt and dark pants, stood near the
back door keeping a watch while the
first man took the money from
Brennan.
The man with the knife then made
a slice at Brennan, cutting his shirt
and nicking him on the stomach with
the point of the blade. He then hit
Brennan on the head with the knife
butt and left.
The assistant manager of the
store, Jean Pope came in a few
moments later, found Brennan, and
brought him to the police station to
, report the crime
.Police Chief Carl Richier.. said
S,.heir log shows the two arrived at .the
station at 8:06, about 25 minutes after
thle crime occurred. -
Chief Richter 'said the robbery is
currently under investigation by the
police department.
SATURDAY OF LAST week, John
Roland Wood, 34, of Highland View
entered the Jr. Food Store at Highland
View, brandishing a large oyster shell
arid made threatening gestures with it


to the store clerk, Faith Bearden.
Wood demanded money and tried to
force Bearden to drive him to Panama
City. Bearden was resisting Wood's
instructions when three customers
walked into the store, when Wood then
bolted out the door with some $243 in
mostly change and small bills in his
pocket.
The Gulf County Sheriff's Depart-
ment searched for Wood all night long


and early Sunday morning. A motor-
ist, who knew he was being hunted,
saw Wood coming out of the woods
near the Dixie Belle curve. A Sheriff's
Department cruiser was nearby and
took the fugitive into custody.
It was learned that Wood had
escaped from a work release program
in Panama City Saturday, coming to
Highland View and committing the

No Objections Voiced at

Any Budget Hearings
Budget hearings have been going on in Gulf County since last
Thursday, with all taxing agencies in the county holding separate public
hearings on their announced taxing rate which were stated on the annual
mailing of TRIM noticesearlier this month.
The TRIM had the purpose of advising tax payers of the highest
amount of taxes they could expect to be billed with this fall when the tax
notices are mailed out. None of the taxing authorities can levy more taxes
than wvas listed on the TRIM notices without sending out personal
registered letters to each tax payer in the county announcing their
intentions.
Each of the taxing bodies may reduce their tax levy without further
notice to the tax payer.
The Gulf County Commission, the City of Port St. Joe and the City of
Wewahitchka have all held public meetings during the past week to allow
public input to their budget and taxing plans.
The County Commission was first on the hearing list, bringing their
financial plan out for perusal Thursday of last week with no objections
being voiced during the hour duration of the hearing.
The Gulf County Commission has established a budget requiring
$5,929,381 to fund and a millage rate of 7.685.
Monday of this week, the City of Port St. Joe put its taxing plans up
for comments and didn't have a single visitor to the hearing. The City has
reduced its budget slightly from last year's taxing rate.
The City of Port St. Joe millage rate is 5.388 to levy for a budget of
$7.91lo.6i:0. The Citl has two budgets included in its total. (Citl operations' '"
budget is $1,806,230 and the Waste ater Treatment Plant budget-funded
by its three customers-is $5,248,025.
The City of Wewahitchka held its hearing Tuesday night, and
according to, clerk Susan Pitts, nobody opposed the Commission's,
planned tax cut from last year's rate.
The City of Wewahitchka has a planned budget of $362,181.45 which
will require a levy of 5.18 mills.
... The Gulf County School Board will have its hearing this afternoon in
the. Board's meeting room in the Gulf County Courthouse. The hearing
will be held at 5:15 p.m.


Melvin Trial Handed Over to


Jury for Decision


Street and Long Aveuie Tuesday, to determine what is
causing a section of the street to sink.


iThe triple murder trial of Clyde
Melvin went to the jury Wednesday,
with a verdict in the sensational case
not expected to be rendered before
some time today.
Melvin is on trial for the killing of
Judge W. L. Bailey, attorney Tom
Ingles and Peggy White Paulk, both of
Panama City, in the Gulf County
Courthouse in July, 1987, during a
hearing on a motion requested by
Melvin to relieve him of alimony
payments to his divorced wife, Inez
Huckeba Melvin. Melvin is also
charged with attempted murder in an
attempt to kill his former wife during
the same shooting spree.

Remember Kate!

Port St. Joe Churches Remember Their


Needs When Disaster
It's a reasonable assumption that everyone who was here,
in Port st. Joe in 1985 remembers Hurricane Kate and the
damage it did in and around Port St. Joe.
Those who were here in 1985 also remember how
appreciative they were of the men who came from Alabama.
with the relief wagon, set it up and provided many meals to
people who had no power to operate their cook stoves. It was
a welcome gesture and.filled a real need.
Now, the tables have been turned and people who
remembered Hurricane Kate have remembered other
unfortunate people in Jamaica, who have suffered the
ravages caused by Hurricane Gilbert. They have put feet to
their commiserating with the people of Jamaica and have
done something about the situation.
What started out as just an idea on Friday of last week,
the day after Gilbert raked the length of the island nation of
Jamaica, became a city-wide effort in just a few hours which
produced some 7,000 pounds of disaster relief supplies for the
Jamaicans, from the people of Port St. Joe.
Word of the project, .which was born with the
Brotherhood of Long Avenue Baptist Church, quickly spread
among the other churches of the city and throughout the


Struck Three Years Ago
community with the help of local radio station WJBU.
By Monday morning, over 120 cartons of 'food clothing
and supplies had been collected, sorted, boxed. labeled and
made ready for shipment. The supplies were transported to
the air shipping point in Miami by Terrell and Barlow Magee
of North American Van Lines in Panama City. The Magees
donated the hauling services, transporting the supplies to the
Sierra Norwood Calvary Baptist Church in Miami. Rev.
Richard Ledgister, the pastor of the Miami church, is a
native Jamaican and arranged air transportation for the
relief supplies to the island of Jamaica. The supplies have
probably already been distributed to those in need through
local Jamaican churches by the Jamaican Baptist Alliance.
Rick Lamberson, who spear-headed the relief move-
ment, said he had, enormous response from people
everywhere and from all of the churches of the community.
"Just everybody was anxious to help out", he said.

RELIEF SUPPLIES COLLECTED by the people of Port St.
Joe are shown in the picture at right, just before they were
loaded on the transport truck. Loading the supplies were
Mike Bateman, Anthony Skanes, Cawthon Williams, Rick
Lamberson, -Phil Earley and Keith Nixon.

Opportunity Club Hunker Down with Kes


by Kesley Colbert


Port St. Joe has habitually been a place where the citizens
tend to do things for themselves especially public projects.
We don't look to some government arm to perform in our
every need as do some places, but we have a habit of banding
together and reaching down into our pockets and pulling out the
money to pay for the amenities we think we need or the
amenities we want.
The latest demonstration of this independence on the part of
our people is the formation of the "Shark 100" club. This doesn't
mean, "100 Sharks banding together" to perform some
nebulous task or other. This organization name puts feet to
dreams and describes any number of Shark supporters who will
pull out an old moldy $100 bill and put it on the line to finance the
things for our school's athletic programs which are not the
responsibility of the schools to buy, but which we would like our
kids to have when they go our representing our town in the
various athletic competition programs throughout the year.
$100.00!
Why a $100.00? We don't really know why the amount was
arrived at to gain membership to the "Shark 100" club, but it's
a good round figure, one which should separate the serious
supporters from the "give 'em $5.00 and consider my duty
done" type supporter. When a person shucks out $100.00 or more
for some activity or to support an idea or ideal, he is serious in
his support and concerned about the object of that support.
Already Lawrence Bowen, chairman of the "Shark 100"
club and the "Shark Boosters" says more than 30 people have
responded with their $100.00 in the first week of getting
organized. This response is without any public push or big
publicity campaign. The organizers have been low key with
their proposed organization until they could get their plans all
lined up. Still, the word of mouth support has resulted in a great
deal of interest.
We like the idea and we like the response.. Beneficiaries of
the club is every organized sport the school students will play
during the coming year.
We'd really like to see at least 100 members of this "Shark
100" club, but it surely wouldn't upset the organizers-or us-if
the number to ultimately be signed up went well over 100.
We would like to remind everyone that the "Shark 100" club
is an equal opportunity organization. The only opportunity you
need to join is your $100.00.


No Kingpins Here

Last week a reporter from the Florida 'Trend' magazine
came around asking us to comment on why Dempsey Barron
lost the state senator election to Vince Brunner, or why the
voters who voted against him in Gulf county, did so.
We told him that in our opinion those who voted for Bruner
did so because they wanted a change. We could certainly think
of no other reason. Barron, had not particularly done us wrong
here in Gulf county. As a matter of fact, in the several instances
where we had needed him, Barron had been effective in being
the advocate for our county.
Then the reporter asked us a question which caused us
pause. He asked, "Who are the political kingpins for Port St.
Joe and Gulf County?"
Now, we'll ask you. If you had to give the names of the
political "Kingpins" of Gulf county, who would you say it was?
After pausing over the question for a minute, we had to
truthfully tell the reporter that we knew of no particular person
or persons in Gulf county. We told him the people in our county
pretty much thought for themselves and didn't pay much
attention to any attempts at a so-called "kingmaker" to
determine how they voted:
We think that's good. If nobody can depend on our vote just
because a few people offer their support, we are not in danger of
having our very lives guided and determined by a handful of
people.
There's no "Tammany Hall" in Gulf County. There's just
Gulf County and its citizens, expressing themselves as they feel
they should.
Every voter should go to the polls and do the same.


Picky! Picky! Picky!


I can tell you the exact day this
particular problem began. It was the
first day of school last year. Cathy and
the boys jumped in the car all talking
at once about "first day school
things". Cathy is fired up and eager to
get another school year cranked
off-no pun intended here-the boys
are not quite as eager or as fired up. If
I recall correctly Josh was a'telling
Jesse that Mr. Wells was the meanest
third grade teacher that ever lived.
That he whipped everybody everyday
and that he would bite you sometimes


and that he especially didn't like boys
whose'older brother had gone through
his class. .
The car didn't start. The boys
jumped out cheering. Jesse grabbed
my hand, "Dad, it's a sign from
God-I don't have to go to Mr. Wells'
class!"
Cathy didn't think God had
anything to do with it. She said it was
my fault. She allowed as how she'd
been telling me that she needed a new
car. And of all mornings, this is the
morning that I should of had the car


ready and don't just stand there like
an idiot, do something to get this old
car, that shouldn't be here 'cause we
ought to have a new one, running. I'M
going to be late-hurry and fix it.
Well, shucks. I put in a chew,
strolled over to the car and knew I was
in bad trouble. I don't know nothing
about automobiles. It took me ten
minutes to get the hood up. You won't
believe this-they got a lever now
you've got to pull inside the car before
- the hood will come up. I'd never seen
that one. No telling what they'll think


COLBERT


of next! I peered over at the motor
like I was Mr. Goodwrench-you
wouldn't believe the wires and
gadgets sticking out of that thing. I
was fixing to say, "Everybody in the
truck I'll run you to school," when
Josh stuck the jumper cables in my
hand, "The battery is dead, Dad."

Hey, I had that car running in a
couple of minutes. Cathy wasn't but
ten fifteen minutes late at the most.
But, boys, that got it n her head that
we needed a "new" car. The car is
new. It's the last vehicle we bought so
it's "our new car". Besides, it's only
five years old. I've got a pick up truck
that's older than my boys-you don't
hear me complaining do you.
We got that battery recharged
and things went O.K. for about two
weeks and then the wipers quit. The
bad part of that was she was on her
way to Tennessee and the rain was
a'pouring down. Cathy got started on
me for real about getting rid of that
car. A few weeks later the air
conditioner stopped air conditioning. I
told her to hang on-the summer
would be over soon.
Listen, you know anything about
the price of real new cars. I bet you
those things are up to five or six
thousand by now. No way I'm going to
pay that for a piece of tin.
The tape player went bad and ate
up one of Jesse's rock and roll tapes. I
told Cathy we had to keep this car-we
shared the same views about music. I
told her about the money end of it and
all. I told her I'd check on why the
engine just quit sometimes. I told her'
I'd do something about those little
steel wires sticking out of the tires. I
also told her that I'd tape up that
brown cloth stuff that was hanging
from the ceiling. And I promised I'd
get that place on the console fixed
where Jesse started the fire.
I had everything, in pretty good
shape this school year except for the
air conditioner, but now, summer's
about over. I explained to Cathy that
she'd made it through the worst part.
And guess what gang-the car started
on the first day of school this year. It
made it all the way to the third
morning before it failed to crank. I
didn't give anyone a chance to say a
word-I broke and ran for the jumper
cables.
It could be a long winter-but look
at the bright side-Cathy won't be on
me about that air conditioner.
Respectfully,
Kesley

E TAOIN SHRDLU


Fort Walton Area Growth Could be A


WHEN WAS THE last time you
went to Pensacola via Highway 98?
I can remember when it was a
more or less pleasant trip and some
beautiful scenery. I remember when
the area around Destin was one of the
most breath-taking drives a person
could take along the Panhandle of
Florida. It wasn't all that long ago
when this section of the trip to
Pensacola saw Highway 98 skirt the
edge of the Gulf of Mexico where one
could view some of the most invit-
ing beaches and clearest water on
the Gulf.
I also remember when the drive
was all but deserted and one could
really viey the wonders of nature.
No more.
I don't believe I saw much of the
water last Friday when I went to
Pensacola except where you cross the


bridges between Destin and Fort
Walton Beach.
Now, when you drive to Pensa-
cola, after you cross the bridge at
Phillips Inlet, there is a stretch of
about 15 or 20 miles where habitation
is sort of sparse along the highway,
but there are signs everywhere that
just a short trip down any of the many
roads which lie on the south side of
Highway 98 will take you right smack
into the middle of a crowded situation.
Even along this sparsely settled
section of Highway 98, there is an
occasional shopping center, a restau-
rant or two, various business inter-
ests, etc.
The shopping centers aren't small
either. You can see unmistakable
signs of the property along the
highway, a little way off the beaches,
as being the only places large enough
to put the shopping centers.


The empty spaces are filling in.
++ + + +
THEN, AS YOU arrive at a point
near Destin, there sits Sandestin
astride the Highway, where millions
have been invested to attract the
tourist to Sandestin. There is nothing
here around Port St. Joe which will
even faintly compare with Sandestin.
All of this leads someone with just a
little bit of imagination to come to the
realization that we ain't seen nothing
yet here in Gulf County. The people
with the big money are buying up the
small hunks of sand which joins the
water and planting huge chunks of
their millions in spots which shout
"plush!" to the tourist and hide those
former vistas along the highway from
the view of the traveller.
A lush green golf course follows a
portion along the north side of the
highway and plenty of plush high-rises
surrounded by more lush green
grounds lie on the south side of the


highway.
This situation continues on for the
50 or 60 miles to Pensacola.
There are more than just a few
places along this drive on to Pensa-
cola where the skyline would rival
that of Atlanta, or Jacksonville, or
Miami. I don't know where all the
money came from, but it is no secret
that there is plenty of green along this
stretch of Highway 98 other than the
manicured landscapes which front the
highrises and hundreds of motels.
And, there is traffic to go along
with these miles and miles of
buildings and expensive homes along
this rou'e which would probably
dwarf the investment of the property
owners who have developed the city of
Pensacola over the years.

FRENCHIE AND I went to
Pensacola Friday, travelling during
the middle of the afternoon to escape


*By: Wesley R. Ramseym


Glimpse of

the reportedly maddening traffic
along Highway 98 in this section, to
attend the last dying moments of her
sister, who has lived in Pensacola for
the past few years. Mary was her
name and we hadn't the occasion to
go over to Pensacola since she lived
with two of her children, and travelled
over here to Port St. Joe on occasion.
She was practically alone and liked to
make the trip, so that was how we
kept in touch during her years over
there.
Travelling to Pensacola was one
of those things we just put off doing
until a more convenient time.
After we attended the funeral
there this past Monday, we have no
excuse to go to Pensacola in the
future, unless we just want to
experience the adventure of driving
through all this development again.
Actually Pensacola is like a lot of
other big cities. It is fast becoming a
run down place with the former


Our Future

middle class homes becoming run
down with more than a few deserted
and boarded up.
But the route between here. and
there is vitally alive and mushroom-
ing with activity.
+ ++++
AS I SAID, it doesn't take too
much imagination to see what the
future holds for us here, with our
white sand beaches, our location
alongside the Gulf of Mexico with no
undertow, our expanses of beachfront
property which remains marketable.
We all figure it's all about gone,
but when you view the little patches of
land some of their huge condominiums
are built on, we've barely scratched
the surface.
Brace yourself and take a good
long look at the surf and sand because
when the developers get this far east,
you won't see anything but an
occasional patch in the not so far
distant future.

SHAD

S* PHANTRY

by Wendell Campbell



It Can't Be Done!
THERE MUST BE ten thousand books on the advantages of positive
thinking, all of them written by people who are rich and have it made.
These people, like "Monday morning" quarterbacks, stand high ohn a
pile of money and tell us how we should live our lives and do things on a
day to day basis. All the time they are telling us this and gesturing with
one hand, they are raking in more money with the other hand. Most of
them have forgotten, I think, of how life was in the-trenches, if, in fact,
they ever lived in the trenches.
There's not many people I know who are more positive in their
thinking than I am. For years I have adhered to the adage that says, "As
a man thinketh, so is he!"
++ +++
IT DOESN'T MATTER, in my opinion, how much a person thinks
positive thoughts, there are some things that we all must realize are
impossible. It's called facing reality. Below is a partial list that, if given
some thought, I think you will agree that they can't be done.
-Win the Florida lottery--I realize they announce a winner every
week or so, but I have never met one, have you? We came close on the
"BIG" one but our 'delegate lost his ticket between Bristol and
Tallahassee.
-Make a woman change her mind-The first person to accomplish
this feat will not be a "walk-on-earth" type individual. It may be a good
thing for us that women don't change their minds, but it sure makes
winning an argument difficult.
-Keep a kitchen clean where teenagers live-Cleaning the kitchen
five times a day and a full-time maid won't do it. Even making them
clean it won't work. They'll get up during the night and mess it up.
-Use the phone when teenagers are around-People tell me they
have tried to call me for several days and all they get is a busy signal. .
.and I have "call waiting!" Just try to limit the use or police a teenager
on a phone and you will get two things; acute frustration and a busy
phone.
-Make more money than a family can spend-You've read stories or
heard tales of people who were millionaires one day and dead broke the,
next, right? Well, just about all of the people in those stories, I'll bet, were
married and had kids. That confirms what I already knew.
-Lose all the weight a person wants to lose-There has never been a
person who has lost all the weight they wanted to lose, including myself.
If we lose 200 pounds, we want to lose 250. The most I've been able to lose
is four pounds in six months. I gained it back-and more-in three days.
-Keep gas in an automobile that teenagers drive-If you think
buying a service station will provide enough gas for your teenager, think
again. A friend tried it and now he has two headaches; he never sees his
son and he owns a service station. Teenagers, he says, spend more money
on gas than adults do on food. He said his son ran out the warranty
mileage on his new truck the first week he had it. Amen!
-Be completely happy-Winning the lottery won't do it, folks!
People who have won, they tell me, are more unhappy than they were
before they accepted the money. I, however, would be willing to give it a
try. Happiness, I think, is a state of mind that few of us acquire.

IF ANY OF TlHE above have or can be done, please let me know how.
As far as I'm concerned, however, they can't be done and that's final,
sweetie!!!

Tuesday, explaining that the Florida
Department of Revenue is cracking
down on Property Appraisers all over
the state, requiring reasonable valua-
tions be placed on all taxable property
in every county.
"They enforce that ruling by
refusing to approve any county's
budget who is not meeting guidelines
for evaluation of taxable property",
Colbert said. County Commissions
cannot legally levy taxes for budgets
unless the budget is approved by the
DOR.
Colbert said under the state
guidelines, Gulf county has some $661
million in property listed on the books,
with $398 million of that amount,

To give an idea of how great
'things are going to be, the annual bike
ride' has been expanded to two

been shot in the neck.
Psychologists and psychiatrists
testifying for the defense, all claim
Melvin was mentally ill, even before
the altercation in the Courthouse.
They all claimed he was suffering
from paranoid delusions, severe de-
pression and "dissociation" at the
time of the shooting which apparently
clouded his reason and caused amne-
sia.
The delusions resulted in Melvin
believing his wife was having an
affair with Judge Bailey; his depres-

losing his home and wife and the
dissociation resulted from the stress
of the moment.
Tuesday, the prosecution coun-
tered with testimony from their
psychologist, who agreed that Melvin
was mentally ill. He added that, in his
opinion, the mental illness caused the
shooting due to "terrible judgment"
not insanity.
The prosecution's witness sur-
mised that Melvin knew he was
shooting at Judge Bailey, attorney
Ingles, Mrs. Paulk and Mrs. Melvin.
He pointed out that Melvin had told
investigating officers shortly after the
shooting of what he had done,
apparently substantiating the claim
he knew what he was doing.
The psychiatrist, in closing testi-
mony from witnesses Tuesday, said,
in his opinion. Melvin knew what he
was doing when he was pulling the
trigger.
Melvin faces several sentencing
possibilities if proven guilty of the
crime. They range from death in the
electric chair to imprisonment in the
state mental institution.

robbery. According to Sheriff Al
Harrison, Wood had only two months
of his current sentence to serve before
he could be released. "Now, he'll go
back to jail for escape, attempted
kidnapping and robbery".
Wood still had $223 of his loot from
the Jr. Store robbery in his pocket
when he was caught.
The search was conducted by the
Sheriff's Department, Port St. Joe's
police force, the Marine Patrol, all of
who acted on several tips from
-cooperating citizens of Highland
View.


Colbert declared, we re not
over-assessed anywhere in Gulf Coun-
ty, under the state's definition". He
also pointed out that only 40 percent of
Gulf County's property owners actual-
ly pay taxes. "The remainder are free
of that burden by way of the
homestead exemption and other law-
ful exemptions. There are a full 60
percent of our property owners who
are completely exempt", he said.
"The Department of Revenue is
constantly auditing my rolls to see
that they are within a certain range
for valuation, which is within 90
percent of actual cash value".
Colbert said property at the
beaches in the county are the largest
tax producers in Gulf County, exclud-
ing St. Joe Paper Company.

Grant to Promote Rule Placing


,Dredged Sand Back on Beaches


Congressman Bill Grant an-
nounced this week he will host a
meeting designed to make it easier to
preserve valuable beach sand.
On September 28 in Washington,
D.C., Grant will bring together
representatives of the U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers and the Florida
Department of Natural Resources to
ensure that sand removed during
Corps dredging projects be placed on
Florida beaches when possible.
The Corps regularly dredges
inlets and channels along the Florida
coast. Often, the dredged material
contains sand suitable for adjacent
beach renourishment projects. But
Federal law mandates that the Corps
dispose of the dredged material in the
most economical manner available.,
which is usually ocean dumping.
"Often, taxpayers wind up paying
twice, once for the channel dredging
project and again when the sand is
recovered from the ocean for the
beach renourishment program,"


Grant said. "What we are attempting
to do is agree on a strategy for
allowing the Corps to place the sand
directly on the beach where it is
needed. The Corps is not at fault. The
problem is with the law which directs
Corps activities. What we are trying
to achieve is a way for the Corps and
D.N.R. to work -together for the
benefit of Florida's beaches."


Earlier this month, when the
Public Works and Transportation
Committee considered a bill to
authorize Corps projects for 1989,
Grant inserted language in the bill to
encourage the Secretary of the Corps
to accommodate the state's beach
renourishment schedule.
Grant said he is optimistic that
the September 28 meeting will pro-
duce an agreement.
"I have been extremely pleased
with the response I have received
from the Corps," Grant said. "They
understand that beaches are a pre-


A Winner After Return Home
After returning home from a 28 day shrimping trip, Arlie Thornhill found out
that he was the lucky recipient of the V.C.R. recently given away by David Rich's

from Danny Kennedy, local store manager.


Delicious Potato Dish Is

Great With A Variety of Entrees


The ways of preparing potatoes
are endless. A particularly tasty one
is Potato Cheese Bake which has
the added advantage of advance
preparation. The dish is ideal for
serving with fish, baked ham,
chicken or beef.
Shred cooked Washington Russet
potatoes and combine with creamy
dairy sour cream or sour half-and-
half, Swiss cheese, shredded carrots
and seasonings. Sprinkle' the top
with additional cheese and paprika.
For ease of serving, prepare them
in advance and refrigerate until
baking.
Grown in the rich, mineral soil of
the 'Columbia River Basin, Wash-
ington Russets are high in solids
and low in water making them an
excellent potato for baking and
French frying as well as for other
potato needs. You'll recognize these


high-quality potatoes by their oval
shape, shallow eyes and light netting!
Buy them in quantity for the best
value and to have on hand for all your
potato recipes. They keep well if
stored in a cool, dark area with good
ventilation.

Over 700 People Enjoy First



Labor Day Fishing Tournament


Through scattered showers and
broken sunshine, Labor Day saw a
great crowd at Whitfield's Landing.
The day began with WJST broadcast-
ing live, while friends and family were
busy welcoming guests. Throughout
the day an estimated crowd of over
700 people enjoyed a free fish fry and a
free barbecue. All were entertained
by Gulf County's own live band the


Wewahitchka's Gators jumped on
Maranatha Christian early Friday
night and scored all but three of their
points in the first half of a 48-0 rout.
The Gators ran up a whopping 317
yards of offense while holding their
foes to only 22, as the Gators gave
their home fans their first win of the
season.
The Gators stubbed their toe on
their first possession of the football,
<: fumbling on its first possession, but
their stout defense which played so
well against the large Port St. Joe
Sharks the week before, held Mara-
natha on the Gator 30 yard line and
proceeded to score seven straight
times without allowing the Maranatha
team to cross the goal line even once.
Gator quarterback Mike Sewell
showed home town fans they didn't
lose too much by way of graduation in
that position by crossing the goal line
with three of the Gator TD's. Sewell
scored on a sparkling 40 yard ramble

Sr. Citizens Offer
Thanks for Service
The senior citizens and staff at the
Port St. Joe Senior Center have been
the recipients of love and kindness
given by Mrs. Marion Odum. She has
devoted many hours receiving, separ-
ating and stacking and hanging
clothing items that have been donated
by the people of Bay and Gulf
counties.
This past weekend Marion and
her daughter, Trish spent several
hours on Sunday separating clothes,
sizing them and bagging them so that
A) they could be sent to the aid victims in
Jamaica.


Fleetwater Sound Shop. Judge Taun-
ton and his family took the stage
during the lunch hour and enlightened
everyone with a medley of traditional
songs. The grandfather of Sue Hill,
Clarence Groth came to the grand
opening all the way from Rochester,
N.Y. and was very entertaining with a
harmonica medley along with playing
tunes requested by the audience.
There was an awards ceremony


in the first period, a two yard plunge
on the Gator's next possession and a
13 yard dash early in the second
period. Sewell also connected on two
passes of three attempts for 59 yards.
The Gator quarterback position
seems to have been left in good hands,
Wewahitchka's running backs,
Wayne Forehand, Andy Whitfield and
Shannon Miller added scoring runs
during the first half.
Forehand zipped across from nine
yards out late in the first period.
Whitfield ripped off a 14 scoring gallop
and Miller plunged across from the
one for the Gator's final TD as the
first half wound down.
Ross Yowell, who had kicked so
well for Port St. Joe last year, wound
up the Gator scoring with a 35 yard
field goal in the third quarter to wind
up the Gator scoring.
Ray Stripling kicked three extra
points for the Gators.

Gulf County has a

Sheriff that has work-

ed hard, been tough on

drug dealers, and most

of all Al Harrison has

been and will continue

to be HONEST.


My opponent stated there was a 72% increase in the Sheriff's budget.
This is not true. There was a 45% increase from 1984 to 1988 in Al Har-
rison's term of office. My opponent failed to state there was a 95% in-
crease from 1976 to 1984 in his years in office.
My opponent stated that there were several programs abolished. This
is not true.
The Junior Deputy Program, and National Crime Watch had been inac-
tive months before Al Harrison took office. The Senior Citizen and
School Drug Education programs are the strongest they have ever had
in Gulf County. Ask the Senior Citizens and the school teachers.
Crack cocaine is the most dangerous drug in the world. The reason my
opponent didn't have crack cocaine in Gulf County is because it was
not invented until two years ago.
My opponent states he needs three years to get his retirement. The fact
is he receives a chepk for $1,200.00 each month for the rest of his life,
plus any other income. He retired with 28 years service from the State
of Florida.

AL HARRISON HAS BEEN HONEST AND WILL
CONTINUE TO BE HONEST.

Sharks Trounce Apalachicola


Win 50-0 Lop-Sided Victory In Season's Home Opener


The Port St. Joe Sharks seemed to
score at will, ruling off 50 unanswered
points to blank the Apalachicola
Sharks 50 0 in Friday nights football
action.
David Barnes rushed for 133
yards and two touchdowns leading the
Shark running attack that ground out
285 yards. The Sharks also had 110
yards passing led by Ken Monette
with three receptions for 60 yards and
one touchdown, totalling 359 yards of
offense in the game.
The defense set the stage for the
game yielding only 40 offensive yards
to Apalachicola during the game.
Willie Smith led all tacklers with 10
and 1 blocked punt, but Calvin Pryor.
was right on his heels with nine.
Ernest Gant had seven tackles, Ivey.
Henderson had five tackles (one hit on
kickoff coverage was of the bone-
jarring type). Oscar Jones also had
five tackles with one interception and
one fumble recovery. Desmond Quinn
had four tackles with one intercep-
tion.

The Sharks scored early in the
first period of play. Taking the open-
ing kickoff David Barnes returned the
ball to the 38 yard line. With a third
and seven Ken Monette grabbed
quarterback Bill Ramsey's pass for 12
yards and a first down at the Apalach
42 yard line. After being backed up on
a illegal use of hands penalty Eric
Langston grabbed another Ramsey
pass for 10 yards, then David Barnes
got the first down on a third down
draw play up the middle. With a 1st
and ten at the Apalach 37 yard line Ty-
rone Hamilton pulled in another Ram-
sey pass and scampered 17 yards to
the 20. Another illegal use of hands
penalty backed the ball up to the 33
yd. line. With a 1st down & 23 yards to
go Ken Monette and Bill Ramsey con-
nected again this time for a 33 yard
touchdown toss. Bobby Williams' ex-
tra point was good and with seven
minutes left 'in the first quarter the
Sharks were on top 7 0.
Shark defense got the ball back to
the offense in a hurry as they com-
pletely shot down Apalachicola's of-
fense forcing a punt. Nicholas Rolack
and Russell Cherry behind quarter-
back Blaine Adams were running the
ball well but a Shark fumble by David
Barnes with 3:31 left in the quarter
turned the ball over to Apalach.
Barnes made up for the fumble in
a hurry as he picked off an
Apalach pass but a flag on the Sharks
left the ball in Apalachicola's hands.
But, again good defense totally shut
down Apalachicola's offense as St.
Joe took over possession on the
Apalachicola 40 yard line.
David Barnes went up the middle
for 11 yards off the draw play, then
reeled off another nine yards around
the end. Nicholas Rolack set up a first
and goal at the six yard line after
gaining 34 yards up the middle. At this
point quarterback Kevin Cox kept the
-ball on the option play scoring the
Sharks second touchdown of the
quarter, putting the Sharks on top
13-0.
As the second quarter started the
Sharks again got good field position
as Terry Quinn returned an
Apalachicola punt to the Apalachicola
42 yard line. Cody Thomas grabbed a
nine yard Bill Ramsey pass. Walter
Dise reeled eight yards up the middle
for a first down. Barnes got four more
and Russell Martin picked up another
first down on an end around to the
Apalachicola 11 yard line. A penalty
moved the ball back to the 16 yard line
before David Barnes rushed 16 yards
for another Shark touchdown,
Williams' extra point was good and
the Sharks were on top 20 0 with 9:21
left in the half.
St. Joe's final score of the half
came after Oscar Jones recovered an
Apalach fumble on their own 26 yard
line. Cherry had two carries for nine
yards and Barnes took an option play
down to the two yard line but another
illegal use of hands penalty moved the
ball back to the 23 yard line. Ken
Monette grabbed a Kevin Cox pass for
12 yards followed by Eric Langston's
nine yard touchdown reception of


another Cox pass, Williams' kick was
good, giving the Sharks a 27 0
halftime lead.
The third quarter held more of the
same as Oscar Jones intercepted an
Apalachicola pass and returned it to
the 36 yard line. With a third and ten,
running back David Barnes did it
again taking a Ramsey hand off on the
draw play and rushing 39 yards up the
middle for his second touchdown run
of the night. Williams' extra point was
good, putting the Sharks on top 34 0.
The defense held Apalachicola on
downs as they went for a fake punt
play again giving St. Joe the ball deep
in their own territory at the Apalach
22 yard line. Quarterback Blaine
Adams directed the offense to the 1
yard line where with a fourth and.
goal, Bobby Williams kicked his first
field goal of the season giving the
Sharks a 37 0 lead.
The defense got the ball back in a
hurry as Willie Smith blocked an
Apalach punt attempt and Darrell
Tull scooped it up and returned it to
the Apalachicola four yard line. With
a second and goal from the four yard
line, quarterback Kevin Cox optioned
the ball off to Walter Dise for the
Sharks second score in the third
quarter. Williams' kick was good and
the Sharks were on top, 43 0.
The Sharks got their final score of
the game late in the fourth quarter
after Chris Walding recovered
another Apalach fumble on the 23
yard line. Dise ran for eight yards,
Oscar Jones for five, quarterback
Matthew Taylor moved the ball to the
two yard line on a quarterback sneak,
and Calvin Pryor bulled his way in
for the touchdown from the two yard


line. Williams' extra point was good
for the % century mark as the Sharks
won 50 0.
Barnes rushed for 133 yards on 20
carries; Nick Rolack rushed for 45
yards;Russell Cherry 36; and Walter
Dise has 42. Ken Monette led all

"Gut Feeli


Gut feelings are not valid tests of
truth. But since gut feelings occasion-
ally correspond to the truth, many
people are fooled into thinking their

generally lead us down the loser's.

gut feelings are, I move slowly when I

Foreign

' Florida Trend .Magazine says
foreigners are buying Florida assets
like never before. According to the
statewide business magazine, a new
wave of foreign investments is
single-handedly reshaping the state's
manufacturing and real estate indus-
tries from the Panhandle to the Keys.
Florida Trend says Australians
and British businesses already own a
third of Florida's concrete industry.
Canadians control some of Florida's
biggest department stores, including
the Tampa-based Maas Brothers
chain and Miami-based Burdines.
Companies at least 10 percent foreign-
owned employ 107,000 Floridians and


Investors Snapping Up Florida Assets


the overall value of property, plant
and equipment owned by foreign
affiliates is approximately $9.5 billion
three times the value of the
combined assets of the state's nine
public universities.
In addition, says Florida Trend,
foreigners also own more than 500,000
acres of farm land an area equal in
size to all of Flort Lauderdale, Miami,
Orlando, Pensacola, Tampa and
Tallahassee and more than half of
Duval County (Jacksonville) com-
bined.
In a-special report on the flurry of
new foreign investments in Florida,


Florida Trend's September issue
quotes government officials, business
executives, policy makers and eco-
nomists who generally embrace the
growing.level of foreign investment in
the state. So far, most experts agree
that foreign investment has boosted
the state's tax base, helped create
new jobs. bolstered several glutted
real estate markets and help streng-
then home-grown companies.
However, warns Florida Trend,
even though the state is spending, in
excess of $400,000 annually to pursue
investments from overseas, there
could be a down-side to selling too


much to foreign buyers. "If foreigners
gain control of too many Florida
assets," says the magazine, "they
might try to exert their power in such
issues as taxation and growth man-
agement."

So far Great Britain, Canada and
France are leading the charge of
outsiders pouring money into Florida.
Investments from the Japanese.
though still relatively small, are
growing at .a rapid clip. The falling
dollar (down 50 percent against the
yen in the past three years). Japan's
huge trade surplus and a dearth of
high-yield real estate investment


opportunities in Japan help make
Florida a real bargain for the
Japanese, says Florida Trend. Forty-
three Japanese companies already
operate in Florida; nearly half are in
retail and wholesale trade.
Florida Trend predicts Korea,
Singapore and Taiwan will increase
their stakes in Florida because, all
have large cash reserves due to trade
surpluses and because Asian govern-
ments are .beginning to loosen their
restrictions on overseas investments.
The magazine says there is no
sign foreigners are trying to exert any
control in local government matters,


but some legislators are wary of the
growing level of foreign investments.
One failed attempt in 1979 tried to
place restrictions on the amount of
farm land foreigners could buy iin
Florida.. Florida' Trend says contro-
versy over foreign control of Florida
assets will intensify as the breadth
, and depth of overseas investments in'
Florida continues.


Florida's AAA Clubs Endorse Amendment Number 4


Executives from the 1.7 million
member AAA Clubs of Florida
officially endorsed a proposed Florida
Constitutional amendment that would
allow the Legislature to save tax-
payers millions of dollars through


more efficient purchasing methods
for highway right-of-way and bridge
construction.
The proposed constitutional
amendment, Amendment No. 4, will
be placed on the November 8 ballot


and would allow the Legislature to sell
transportation bonds without voter
approval. Proceeds from the sale of
bonds could be used only for the
purchase of right-of-way and the,
construction of bridges. The bonds


will be paid for out of existing state
gasoline tax revenues and the bond
issue will not raise the gas tax.
Specifically, passage of this
amendment would allow the leverag-
ing of $50 million dollars--derived


Parents Weekend at FSU Is October 14 and 15


Students of Florida State Univer-
sity will have a chance to show off the
campus to their parents during the
fifth annual Parents Weekend, Oct. 14
and 15.
Parents will be able to meet with


faculty, deans and administrators at
FSU during the weekend. The regis-
tration deadline is Oct. 1.
The weekend gets under way-
Friday afternoon, Oct. 14, with
check-in and registration from 3 to 6


p.m. at the fountain area of the
Westcott Building, just inside the FSU
main gate. In the event of rain,
registration will be moved to the
Longmire Building. Late arrivals
may register Saturday, Oct. 15, from 8


arges of

The latest sound of alarm by the
man was investigated immediately by
teams scouring the beaches, but no
such debris could be found. The
informer has yet to produce any of the
so-called debris he found on the beach.
He informed the DNR he had sent the
evidence to the Tallahassee Democrat
and told the Democrat the evidence
had been turned over to DNR.
Sheriff Harrison said, "We found
not one single bit of medical waste on
our beach in an intense search
involving deputies, trustees and a host
of volunteers. It just wasn't there", he
said.
Harrison said state law provides
penalties for perpetrating a hoax and
said his department is gathering
information with intentions to file the
charges i. enough evidence can be
secured.


to 9 a.m. at Westcott. Brunch tickets
will be provided at check-in.
Activities will begin Saturday
with a faculty-panel discussion from 9
to 10 a.m. in Ruby Diamond Audi-
torium in Westcott.
A brunch will take place from
10:30 a.m. to noon on the lawn of FSU
President Bernard Sliger's home, 1030
W. Tennessee St.
The Florida State Seminoles will
play East Carolina Saturday at 2 p.m.
at Doak Campbell Stadium on West
Pensacola Street. Parents must
complete a separate ticket order form
that specifies whether or not they
want to sit with their student. Because
of the football game, hotels and
motels may be heavily booked, so plan
early.
Interested parents should write:
Parents Weekend Committee,
Division of Student Affairs, 313
Westcott Building, Florida State
University, Tallahassee, FL 32306--
3019, or call (904) 644-5590 to register
or to receive additional information.
The registration fee, including
brunch, is $10, with children under 12
admitted free.


from less than a penny of the current
gasoline tax--into $420 million dollars
of badly needed rights-of-way, and $80
million in bridge replacement. Cur-
rently each bond issue must receive
separate voter approval, often result-
ing in lengthy purchase delays during
which land values skyrocket as much
as 50 percent to 100 percent.
John H. Stearns, Chairman of the
Florida Conference of AAA Clubs,
cites Florida's congested traffic net-.
work as evidence of the need for more
timely methods of purchase. "Right--
of-way acquisition is one of the largest
costs in highway construction, often
as costly as the construction itself,"
said Stearns. He continued, "The
current system promotes extensive
delays in getting a project started,
meaning greater congestion to
millions of residents and tourists
using Florida's roadways."
Working with the Florida Cham-
ber and the Florida Council of 100, the
AAA Clubs plan to campaign for
passage of Amendment No. 4 through
office banners, buttons, brochures,
and their respective membership
publications.
The AAA Clubs of Florida is the
voice for AAA members in the
Legislature and other statewide
issues. The association is comprised
of the Tampa-based Peninsula Motor
Club, headed by president Robert R.
Sharp, and serving 47 counties in
Western Florida, and the Miami--
based AAA Florida, headed by Group
General Manager, John N. Stearns,
and serving the remaining 20 coun-
ties.

Well, I did it anyway and it was

That's why I'm now a Girl Scout

"You CAN." Today, it's a little easier
for a girl to achieve her dream. I

Sheriff Al Harrison said this week
his department is considering filing
charges of perpetrating a hoax
against a Tallahassee man.
The Tallahassee man has claimed
on two occasions he has found medical
wastes on the south Gulf County


beaches, but no visible proof has been
found of his claims.
The Sheriff said the first time the
man called he produced a hypodermic
needle, rubber glove and part of an
ampule, but there was no indication
they had ever been on the beach.

right material for the job. But you

ROY LEE CARTER
fungicide you have in mind is safe for
the plant you want to use it on. Never
apply a fungicide to any plant that
isn't specifically listed on the product
label.
As we said, sometimes a number
of fungicides will be recommended for
the same disease problem, but these
can vary in strength and effective-
ness. If the disease is severe, either
because you waited too long to do
anything about it, or because it's one
that spreads rapidly, such as downy
mildew, use the most effective
fungicide you can find. You may have
to go to a specialty store for a
fungicide of this type, because they
aren't always available at garden
centers.
If you catch the disease before it
becomes severe, a less effective


E121t RISN
wi' CIt HOUS


fungicide may do just as well in
clearing up the problem. You can
usually use less effective fungicides.
If you've practiced such things as
crop rotation, use of resistant varie-
ties, and good cultural care. Still, the
choice of which fungicide to use can be
confusing. Our best advice to you is to
talk to your County Extension Agent,
or Garden Center operator, and follow
his or her recommendations.
When applying fungicides, only
use the rates listed on the label.
Sometimes, rates are listed in ranges,
such as "four to six ounces per
thousand square feet." Generally, the
lower rate is the amount used early in
the season, or when plants are small.
The higher rate is used when the
plants are full-grown, or the disease
has become severe. However, it's
sometimes a good idea to use the
higher rate early in the season, or
when plants are small. The higher
rate is used when the plants are
full-grown, or the disease has become
severe. However, it's sometimes a
good idea to use the higher, rate early
in the season. This will reduce the
chance of disease early in the plant's
life, and make any disease control
that is necessary later in the season
more effective. Unless the product
specifically states otherwise, it's
usually okay to use the higher rate,
right from the start.
Finally, I would like to stress the
importance of treating a fungus
problem as early as possible. A
fungicide can't get rid of an existing
disease. It can only keep the disease
from spreading. A disease that's
already present will remain on the
plant until the plant part dies, or is
removed.
