Al Ray, Don Parker end Up In A Tie
For Commission Seat In District Five
Gulf County was probably the
only county in the state of Florida
which sent more voters to the polls in
the second primary Tuesday, than
they sent in the September primary.
According to Supervisor of Elec-
tions, Cora Sue Robinson, 4,690 of
Gulf's registered voters, plus 518
absentee votes were cast in Tuesday's
election. Gulf county has 7,220 regis-
tered Democrats, the only ones
eligible to cast a ballot Tuesday.
Gulf county's election results still
were not certain Wednesday morning,
with every local race, except one,
virtually at a dead heat and suscepti-
ble to go either way after the absentee
votes were counted Wednesday, be
ginning about noon.
423 ONE RACE DECIDED
~ '- Only one of' Gulf's five local
questions on the ballot was decided
531 after the machine count was done
552 Tuesday evening. David Byrd was
almost surely a certain winner over,
447 incumbent Waylon Graham for
School Board, District Four seat.
459 Byrd had a 181 count lead over
Graham and it was numerically
574 possible the absentees could give
393 Graham an upset, but it wasn't very
outside of the Port St. Joe fire station Tuesday night. Every time a set of
numbers were posted, the people would move close in order to see. Between
reports, they stood around in bunches to "analyze" what was happening.
Absentee Ballots Count
Gets A Late Start
Gulf County is probably the last county in Florida to count its
absentee ballots for the second primary election this year.
Final counts began to emerge Wednesday afternoon at 5:30 with only
one change in the trend which had been set in the machine balloting.
James Hanlon, who had been trailing Paul Sewell by 12 votes on the
machines, rolled up a 13 majority with the absentees. Hanlon received 61
absentees and Sewell 36.
The only other race which was left in doubt was between Don Parker
and Al Ray for the Commission post in District Five. Ray ended the vote
Tuesday night with a 21 vote majority. Absentees gave Ray 35 and Parker
56 for that race to end up in a 587-587 tie. There will be a re-count in that
In other races for the County Commission, District I it was Gortman
259 and Traylor 485. Creamer edged Graham, 522 to 475.
In the school board races, Hanlon pushed Sewell out with absentees,
chalking up 508 votes and 495 for Sewell.
Byrd pushed Graham further behind, capturing 92 absentee votes to
only 37 for Waylon Graham.
So, barring miracles, Byrd is the
winner in that race.
OTHERS TOO CLOSE TO CALL
All other local races were too
close to call after the machine count
was in and kept every candidate
running for election on edge until the
absentees were counted.
The main attraction for the
county ballot was the Sheriff's race,
where incumbent Al Harrison and
challenger and former sheriff Ken
Murphy slugged it out to the bitter
end. The interest in the sheriff's race
seemed to be greater during the
second primary campaigning than it
was in the first.
Murphy had a large lead as the
votes were coming in, until the votes
started piling in from the central
standard time portion of the county.
Harrison had an avalanche of ballots
in these precincts, eroding Murphy's
Harrison ended up with a 117 vote
majority in the machine count, with
the 518 absentee votes still to be
The District One County Commis-
sion seat race had former commis-
sioner Jimmy Gortman poised to
reclaim the seat if the absentees
didn't upset his plans. Gortman had a
43 vote lead over incumbent A.B.
In the District Three contest,
newcomer Ed Creamer had a small 67
vote lead over challenger and com-
mission veteran Walter Graham.
City Taking First Mortgage On Hospital
Offering Financial Assistance to Pay Up Back Bills and Get Back on Sound Basis
The Port St. Joe City Commission
agreed Tuesday night to provide
financial assistance to Gulf Pines
Hospital, in order for the institution to
pay off its. back debts.
In the deal, the City would take a
first mortgage on Gulf Pines, and
would have input to financial matters
as they come up in the future.
The assistance, which would be
dealt out on an as-needed' basis and
contains a cap of $250,000, would be
used to pay a pile of debts accumulat-
ed over the past five or six years from
operations. Paying off the debts would
assist the hospital in its present day to
day operations, according to Hugh
Steely, owner of the hospital.
"We've been in the black the past seven to nine
months with our position improving every day. Not
many small hospitals are doing this these days."
Steely told the Commission on
Tuesday, "We've been in the black the
past seven to nine months with our
position improving every day. Not
many small hospitals are doing this
these days. Many of them are
continuing to have financial difficul-
ties and deteriorating", he said.
Under the deal, the City would
require a committee to study hospital
operational records each month and
even have some input into the
business matters. The committee
would be composed of city, county,
industrial and civic representatives,
and would be named by the City
Under the agreement, the hospital
would draw from the fund as the
money was needed and repay in $8,000
monthly installments over a period of
three years. The payments would
include interest at the rate of 8'4
Attorney William J. Rish, who
drew up the agreement for the city
said, "It gives the city input to the
hospitals' operation and secures the
money advanced. We'll either get the
money back or get the hospital".
Mayor Frank Pate said, "We need
the hospital to remain open. If it were
to be allowed to close, we probably
couldn't get a permit to open another
one", he pointed out.
Steely said, "We're doing well at
the hospital now. Our census is
improving. We have some good
doctors and we're working every day
to locate one more quality doctor. We
just need some relief from these old
debts, part of which we inherited
when we purchased the hospital. We
want to instill confidence in the
institution", he said.
Rish pointed out, "The agreement
is pretty tight. I think the city's
interest is well protected in this

In District 5, Al Ray had a small
21 vote lead over Don Parker after the
machine count was tallied. Absentees
have a more than even chance of
changing the winner here.
In the one remaining school board
race, challenger/Paul Sewell, who was
defeated four years ago by James
Hanlon, has a 12 vote edge over
Hanlon as the absentee counting
started yesterday afternoon.
In the state-wide polling, Gulf
county polled a 600 vote majority for
Bill Gunter for the U.S. Senate, but the
remainder of the state objected to the
choice and voted for Buddy Mackay.
In the race for Secretary of State,
Tom Moore was Gulf's-and Florida's
-choice over Jim Taft.

Jenne was the favorite of the state's
All of the state primary winners
face Republican opposition in the

nominee from District 1 will have a
Republican opponent and the commis-
sion nominee from District 3 will have
two independent opponents.
Voter registration, books will
close Saturday throughout the state
of Florida, in preparation for the
November general election.
According to Gulf County Sup-
ervisor of Elections, Cora Sue
Robinson, the books will be closing
for registration of new voters until
after the November 8 voting.
"The registration deadline falls
on a Saturday, but our office will be
open in the Gulf County Courthouse
all day Saturday until 5:00 p.m., to
register anyone who is eligible who
wants to qualify for the November
voting", Mrs. Robinson said.
Florida law requires the closing
of registration books 30 days prior
to election. This puts a moratorium
on the registration of new electors
until the election is over. The
registration books are open for
registration at all other times
during the year.
FIFTY-FIRST YEAR, NUMBER 6
Editorials and Comments
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 6,1988
Looking over a list of changes in our laws and enforcertnent
procedures which came into effect Monday morning of this
week, we saw a couple which caught our eye in particular.
For instance, penalties were toughened up "for a wide
range of offenses, from littering to burglary" .
We couldn't help but ascertain that this statement was
made to cover the entire spectrum of breaking the law with
littering being on one end, or the least penalized crime; to
burglary, or the most penalized crime of those being
If this order of priorities is correct, then it's easy to see why
Florida's litter law is paid scant attention by our own people or
visitors to our state. Being on the low side of a scale which has
burglary on the high side would mean one could litter almost
with impunity, even though the law gives stern warnings on
signs beside our highways from Pensacola to Key West.
From past experience, and considering this same
spectrum, if the state of Florida makes a case, applying the full
penalty against someone, sometime, for littering, a burglar
doesn't stand a chance to- geti ff. even with parole if he is
convicted under the rules which went into effect Monday.
We've said all this say .to opine that possibly part of the
reason our streets and publiclanids are the possessors of such a
trashy facade is becauseno penalties have been assessed in the
We're proud to see this situation is scheduled to change. At
least, our law makers say it is going to change.
Another change in the law would require a parents' consent
for his teen-age daughter to receive an abortion.
Actually this is probably to protect the parent more than
the teen-ager. Most parents would be fighting mad, intent on
doing bodily harm to anyone who would give their young
daughter an abortion. Under the new application of the law, the
parent had better be the first to know, rather than the last.
Now we just want to see some enforcement of these new
laws and these new resolves to strengthen existing law. If
they're not going to be enforced, we had just as well tear them
up and not bother to take up space with their pages in the
Florida law books.
While we're on the subject of enforcing laws, something
really needs to be done about the recent trend toward rioting in
our larger cities each time the law shoots a law-breaker.
We don't advocate shooting people, even though they are
law-breakers, but even this is necessary at times. The narcotic
business and use in our nation is building a community who
thinks .they can operate with impunity and public permis-
Snsionrk..;shoot any, officer of the law who attempts to arrest them
for their wrong doing.
In almost every instance, this has been the reason for the
killing of the culprits in the larger cities; the most recent of
which was Philadelphia.
The shootings have resulted in violence, destruction of
public and private property and anarchy for a period of time in
a ,given neighborhood.
We understand people don't like for their friends to be
killed. We also understand we can't have a riot erupt every time
a policeman draws his gun.to subdue a suspected criminal in
these United States. If a person resists a reasonable attempt at
arrest, he is giving the implication he has done something for
which he doesn't wish to be brought into custody. We think our
system of justice will adequately protect a suspected felon if he
We would like to see the matter addressed by our several
state Legislatures and our national Congress. We wouldn't stifle
the expression of opinion, but a broken bottle to the head or
throat, a fire bomb, a gun, a well aimed rock, burning a private
building or attacking in mobs without fear of reprisal is taking
the matter of protecting one's right to expression a little too far.
Even those who are doing the rioting have their freedoms in
danger if we allow such acts to go unpunished in the future.

I Didn't Make The Hay Ride!
You know, the cool mornings
we've had lately remained me of the
fall' of 1962. You remember that
summer, don't you? Hot, son was it
ever! And it stayed hot, too. I think,
back then, we called it Indian.
Summer. We'd been in school for six
weeks and it was still a hundred and
ten inside Miss Polly's English class..
Listen, it's hard to groove on that
Chaucer fellow with sweat dripping
off the end of your nose. I felt sorry for
those guys that had P.E. first period.
They'd come out of the shower after
class sweating so much their hair
wouldn't dry until after lunch. I think
my home town high school is where
the wet look originated.
And football practice was wonder-
ful that year. We had this coach
named Scott, ex Marine, been to boot
camp eight or ten times 'cause it was
fun, never smiled, still had his
military hair cut-listen, it don't get
too hot for them kind of guys. Bobby
said he could eat sawdust and spit two
by fours. He was mean! He'd been'in
fights in Japan, Singapore, Panama
and the Solomon Islands. Once he had
to be air lifted out of the Phillippines.
Mostly his fights were with Navy guys
but sometimes he would fight other
Marines. He was the kind of guy who
could look right at the sun and not
We'd run laps and exercise until
somebody fainted, then we'd start
practice. That late summer of '62 we'd
sit in sixth period class and pray for
rain, lightning, a tornado-anything
to disrupt practice. And it did cloud up
several times right before practice
and would look like it was about to.
When it was time to start Coach
Scott would step outside, raise his
arms up, wave them kind'a like this
and twenty seconds later there
wouldn't be a cloud in sight. It would
rain over in Hollow Rock and down at
Pillowville but it never rained on
I woke up one morning thinking
that if I had a tattoo maybe Coach
wouldn't yell at me so much. I wasn't
sweating! I jumped up and ran
outside-it was cool. You could feel
that change-that cool refreshing fall
nip in the air. Me and Leon and David
didn't even get into a fight before
breakfast. The walk to school felt
good. Kids were laughing and playing
in the parking lot. I couldn't believe
how the change in the weather had
lifted everyone's spirit. Buddy swore
that Mr. Perriman had almost smiled
at him when he reported to detention
hall.,Listen, we knew better than that.
Mr. Perriman had been the principal
for about a hundred years-he didn't
know how to smile. Miss Polly told us
how that Chaucer fellow would'a
loved this kind of morning.
Mary E. Pendleton asked me if I'd
go to the church hayride with her
Saturday night. It was such a
beautiful morning and I felt so good I
almost said yes. I'd never had a date
before, kind'a thought girls were silly.
I told her I'd think about it. I consulted
with Leon at lunch about this strange
turn of events-about how I was
considering going out with Mary E.
Leon allowed as how a change in the
weather could do strange things to
your mind. He agreed that it was truly
a fine morning, but it wasn't that
Leon went on to explain that first
a hayride, then she'd expect you to
pay for her hamburger at the Dairy
Bar. Next she'd want your letter

locker, before long he said I'd be
walking her to class. He reminded me
of the beauty contest-I think I told
you about that one-near bout every
girl in school entered it-third place.
was as high as they gave .Leave it to .
Leon to complicate a wonderful day..
Of course, it didn't dawn on me until
much later that Leon had been going
steady with that girl from Como.for ,
almost two years.
That afternoon we were laughing
and joking as we headed to the field:."

IT TOOK POSSIBLY the most
popular man in the United States in
the 20th Century (after FDR) to
recapture the White House for the
Republicans, who have kept it for a
majority of the time since.
What was there about Ike? Was it
his grin, his homey character, his war
record? Was it the fact he had led the
U.S. armed forces through the most
destructive war in history? Was it his
famous V for victory sign, which was
the mark of another extremely
popular man, Winston Churchill?
JACK KENNEDY WAS popular, I
believe, because he had an idea and
knew how to tell people about it.
It certainly wasn't his ability, his
character, his money, his family, his
position, or his good (or bad) looks.
Whai was it which caused people

Lyndon kept getting re-elected
because he had us in a war and the
nation was reluctant to change
leaders in mid-war. It certainly
wasn't his popularity. It's hard to find
a person who actually liked LBJ.
Richard Nixon was the least of the
two evils when he ran for office. He
was an angry looking man and
previously had been easily piqued and
sulled up like a possum when he didn't
get his way.
But RMN ran the race, won the
office, and then couldn't hold on to it.
What was the intangible which
made the people trust him more than
they did Hubert Humphrey? Humph-

And while we're at it, what did
Jimmy Carter have, except several
hundred acres of peanuts, large white
teeth and a pretty wife?
Not much. Carter did have an
energetic mother and a sorry brother
to blame everything on. But, what was
the certain formula which caused him
to get elected?
EVERYONE KNOWS why Ron-
ald Reagan got elected. He came
along when the people were just
beginning to get sick and tired of the
government interfering with our daily
lives so much. Of course, we still are,
but we've gotten rid of some of them.
But, it was that charisma which
caused Ronald Reagan to get elected,
.He was believable as a person, but
whether or not that was the formula of
his success, I couldn't say.

Things I've Wanted To Do
MY OLDER BROTHER was a tremendous athlete who could play
most any sport well. He was the first "All American" at Florida State
His athletic endeavors made a serious impact on my life. It's true in
most families, I guess, with two or more brothers or sisters. The younger
members tend to pattern their lives after the older siblings.
My life deviated very little from my brother's; "at least I tried to
follow his example the best I could. There were a few exceptions, but
overall I tried to do the things he did, exactly the way he did them.
ONE EXCEPTION WAS when I was in the fifth grade. I suddenly and
unexpectedly became interested in playing the trumpet. A little later I
became interested in playing the drums. These interests didn't last long
because I played football and it would have been difficult to play the
trumpet wearing a football uniform and with two busted lips.
Shortly thereafter I was introduced to the game of ping pong. I
practiced and played as often as possible and soon became proficient at
the game. When I beat the best player in our school one game, I laid down
my paddle and never seriously played again.
It was about that time that I became a girl scout. That is a hobby that
stayed with me for quite some time. As a matter of fact, I just resigned a
few short years ago; April, 1970 is the date I was married. No more
scouting for girls after that!
THROUGHOUT HIGH school I continued to play football and scouted
for girls, but it was my freshman year in college when I was introduced to
the game of golf.
Several football players and myself would go to the school golf course
on Sunday, after games, and play a round because we didn't have money
to do anything else. They allowed athletes to play free and furnished
clubs. We used driving range balls because we couldn't afford to buy new
AFTER MY FRESHMAN year of football, I drank my first drink of
alcohol. That was one of, if not the worst mistake I ever made. There has
never been anything good come out of any drink I have ever had. I have
recently given up alcohol for other sports, except, of course, girl scouting.
The one sport that has persisted in my bag of past-time endeavors is
golf. I have spent endless hours playing golf and have played some of the
best and worst courses in the South. I have spent a small fortune on
practice balls, lost playing balls, shoes, bags, tees, ball markers, hats,
gloves, sweaters, socks and head covers.
At one time, several years ago when I was working for someone else,
I carried a respectable seven (7) handicap. And I could play it too!
AS WE ALL KNOW, once you've been on the Mountain Top, it's hard
to come down. Maybe it's because I don't get to play as much as I once
did, or maybe it's age catching up with me.
Whatever it is, it sure is playing havoc with my golf game, especially
in tournament play. I plumb embarrassed myself in the George Tapper
Invitational last weekend.
Amy Tapper and all concerned. .it was one heck-of-a golf
tournament and I played my money's worth. I'm looking forward to next
If I don't play well next year, I'm going back to girl scouting!

"The local post office is going to
change in just a short time",
Grimsley reported. "The district
office in Pensacola is considering
applications now for a permanent post
master for the Port St. Joe office. We
should have a permanent appoint-

Grimsley's statements were ap-
parently made in answer to a
complaint made in writing by the
Commission about three weeks ago,
asking why the Port St. Joe office
couldn't be assigned a permanent post
master. The complaint also pointed to
the deterioration in service, possibly
as a result of lack of management.

George Killorin, who will take

advised the club members Tuesday,
he wanted to get the club on a
streamlined, functional basis to bet-
ter pursue its two main projects:
the Kiwanis Pancake Days and the
Junior Miss Program.
Killorin said these two projects
take a good deal of work on the part of
the club members and are used to
largely finance its considerable pro-
jects of maintaining perpetual schol-
arships at Gulf Coast Community

Killorin said it is his intention to
see the club maintain a useful image
in the community. He said he wanted
to see the club be an effective force in
maintaining that image.

Rescue Squad Takes 'Jaws'
Bobby Plair and Jim Barfield of the Gulf County Rescue Squad were on hand
to receive custody of the county's "Jaws of Life" rescue tool this past week, from
the ambulance service director, Joanne Wilson. County Administrative
Assistant, Larry Wells was on hand for the change of responsibility. The
ambulance service turned the rescue tool over to the Rescue Squad because they
could utilize it more fully and because the ambulance service didn't normally
have the people on duty to care for the injured and operate the "Jaws" all at the
Keeping An Eye On
The goal of the Northwest Florida
Water Management District, seems to
be keeping an eye on the Panhandle's
water use in order to keep some of the
problems from happening which have
happened in central and south Flor-
Bill McCartney, executive direc-
tor of the organization, told the Rotary
Club of the probablilty of an ample
supply of safe water becoming more
and more real as population and!
water use in the Panhandle increases.
"Already we have. seen the
Panama City paper mill forced to
close down for periods because of
minerals leaching into the water.
Champion's mill at Pensacola is
spending $1 million just for a study on
how to clean up Perdido Bay and
protect their water, supply", Mc-
Here in Gulf County, we see more
. and more demands being placed on
the underground water supply by
beach development, agriculture irri-
gation and growth in population,
McCartney said, all of which means
we are not immune to water problems
here in Gulf County, where there
seems to be a plentiful supply.
The Northwest Florida Water
Management District operates on a
budget of $18 million, which includes
an operational budget of $2.4 million,
serving all of the Panhandle from the
Alabama line to Monticello. There are
nine members on the board, including
Port St. Joe's veteran member, Tom
McCartney said the district is
vitally concerned with the possibility
of salt water intrusion along the
coastal areas, where cities put a great
strain on the underwater aquifer.
"Our biggest problem, for pollution, is
storm water run-off", McCartney
The depletion of the underground
aquifer has been a real problem along
the coastal region, which does not
have underground formations to hold
water like inland areas do. McCartney
pointed out that Fort Walton Beach,
with its tremendous growth over the
past several years has reduced the
level of its underground water table
by some 240 feet. "Fort Walton is
having to go farther inland to get its
water supplies", the speaker said.
McCartney said that one day Port
St. Joe is going to be faced with a
water problem. He pointed out a part
of this long time solution of the
problem has already been started by
the District. "We have, purchased

35,000 acres of flood plain in and

the water supply", the speaker said.
He said obtaining the land caused
problems with river camp owners who
maintained camp houses on leased
land along the river.
McCartney said the lands will still
be available for use of hunters and
fishermen as they have been in the
past. "Any revenues from activities
on the property will be used to
enhance its purpose and its use by

Dr. Henry H. Fishkind told
Florida Trend there is "an odds-on bet
for rising interest rates, higher
inflation and strong export-led eco-
nomic growth" through early 1989.
After that Fishkind, who is a member
of Florida Trend's Board of Econo-
mists and president of Fishkind &
Associates. a Winter Park consulting
firm, says "inflation will have a fuller
head of steam, requiring firm action
by the Federal Reserve Band." The
result will be a run-up in the prime
rate from 10 percent to 11 percent with
fixed-rate home mortgages bumping
up to 13 percent in early 1989.
Fishkind does not. however, fore-
see a national recession next year and
predicts that a national slowdown in
growth will have a -benign" effect on
Florida even though the state is
"clearly past the zenith of its current
Fishking told Florida Trend that
rising exports and continuing strength
in business investments will be
sufficient to keep the economy on
course even if a period of slower
growth is on its way. According to
Fishkind's forecast for Florida Trend.
Florida's rate of population growth
will slow, as those who want to move
in find it harder to sell their
out-of-state homes due to higher
interest rates next year.
But Fishkind also told Florida
Trend the state is not in for a "big
1975-style bust." He said that while
there has been some overbuilding in
many Florida cities, the pace of
construction has slowed, a correction
is underway and the excess supply of
housing has been modest by historical

seven year old leukemia patient at St.
Jude Children's Research Hospital.
Brian represents all children under
treatment at St. Jude Hospital.
Brian, who lives in Baton.Rouge,
Louisiana with his parents Lisa and
David, was diagnosed with leukemia
in the fall of 1984. For the next 2'/2
years Brian underwent chemotherapy
treatment. Today, Brian still visits St.
Jude Hospital for routine. checkups.
To look at him, no one would ever
know that he has cancer.
For Brian's mother, Lisa, the key
word is hope, the feeling that
pervades St. Jude. "I tell people that
where there is no hope somewhere
else, there is at St. Jude," she said.
And what are her feelings about
the generosity of the donors to St.
Jude? "Each dollar is a step closer to
a cure. The donations are more than
just money. They are more than gold.
They are life itself! Life is so special.
A healthy child is a miracle from God,
and Brian is a walking miracle."

Why does a seemingly normal child have difficulty in
learning? The first thing to test is the child's hearing and
vision. Poor hearing can go undetected at home because
many hard of hearing children can hear deep sounds,
hbut not those of higher pitch. They can hear "most" of
j*j what is said. Vision, if deficient can usually be corrected
easily by the use of glasses.
Mental retardation and certain nervous system
S problems also can be determined and special education
and medication arranged. Poor nutrition, anemia, lack
of sleep and chronic infections can also interfere with a
child's ability to learn.

Port St. Joe's defensive hawks
"helped" the Pensacola Catholic
Crusaders fumble six times Friday
night and converted three of those
fumbles into touchdowns, as the
Sharks sent the Crusaders back to
their lair with a 21-13 defeat.
The win over Pensacola moved
the Sharks up a rung on the state
standings ladder, placing the Port St.
Joe team in the number five ranking.
The Crusaders had two good
running backs in Michael Smith and
Gerald Gambala, but the Shark
defense spelled the difference as the
game wore on.
The Sharks started picking up
fumbles in the first quarter, when
Ernest Gant jumped on a fumbled
Crusader pitchout, giving the Sharks
the ball on their own 38 yard line and
stopping a Crusader drive which had
started on their own 20 yard line.
The Sharks were stalled and had
to kick the ball.away from their own
42. The Crusader receiver bobbled the
ball catching the punt and Quinn was
there again, this time on the Pensa-
cola 26 yard line.
Quarterback Bill Ramsey handed
off to David Barnes on two running
plays for four tough yards. Ramsey
then hit Russell Martin on the 14 with
a pass and a first down. Barnes then
took the ball three more plays and
finally ran it in from the seven yard
Kicker Bobby Williams, who was
perfect in three shots for the night,
kicked the extra point and the Sharks
had a seven point lead.
The crusaders tied the score with
3:15 left in the half, when the
Crusaders capped off their longest
drive of the night, starting on their
own 19 yard line. The Crusaders
mixed up a drive of runs and passes to
move to the Port St. Joe five yard line
before the Shark defense stopped the
drive short of the goal line. The
Crusaders got a break on their third
down when the Sharks were called for
. pass interference. The call seemed to
discourage the Sharks and on the first
play after the penalty, Smith plunged
over from the two yard line to even up
the score. The tie held until half time.
The third quarter was the best one
of the game for the Sharks. On the
second play from scrimmage, the
Crusader runner dropped the ball just
as he came across the line of
scrimmage. The football bounced like
a basketball, which was probably the
reason, Willie Smith tucked it in so
easily on the run, and ran right on for
21 yards to cross the goal line for the
Sharks with only seconds gone off the
Three plays later and the Crusa-
ders fumbled again, with a gaggle of
Sharks right there to pile up on the
Back in business again on the
Crusaders' 25 yard line, David Barnes
took off on one of his patented long
strided, hip swiveling runs and put the
ball over the goal line on the first play
The Sharks were ahead now by a
21-7 score. It was the last time the
Sharks would score for the night, but
it was enough to pump the team up for
the remainder of the game.
The Sharks were feeling so
confident they tried for a fourth and

football with good field position to
open the final period.
It was a grinding drive which took
nearly half the final period, but the
Crusaders worked it all the way to the
four yard line, where Smith again
scored on a four yard plunge.
The Crusaders tried a two point
conversion pass, but Eric Langston
intercepted it in the end zone.

Port St. Joe High School
By: Hilda Cosme
EQUAL OPPORTUNITY HOUSING
The Sharks are getting off to a
great start this school year. The
football team has been 4 0 so far this
season. They are taking it one game at
a time, remembering past mistake
and improving their game. Howev&;'
they need all the support they can get.
So, everyone show up this Friday at
Shark Stadium and cheer the Sharks
on against Rutherford at 8:00 p.m. A
dance will follow the football game
until 12:30 a.m.
This has also been the first year
Port St. Joe High School has had a
volleyball program. It consists of
Junior Varsity and Varsity temas,
which are under the coaching of Ms.
Noles, a new face to the high school.
They played their first game last
week against Altha. Unfortunately, it
was not a Shark victory, but the coach
feels that, with time, the team has the
potential to be a winner. Both Varsity
and J.V. volleyball teams will be
playing Wewahitchka Wednesday,
October 5, at 4:30 p.m. EDT in the
Wewahitchka High School gym.
The Keyettes would like to thank
the police department for keeping
them safe and sound during their
initiation last week. "Thanks, guys!"
Good luck to the juniors and
seniors who will be taking the SAT
Saturday, October 8, here at Port St.
Joe High School. Let's get our brains

hearing to receive citizen input. Bill
Terrace, resident of St. Joe Beach,
presented a petition signed by perm-
anent residents of Santa Anna Street
who oppose the name change. He
stated that signs would have to be
changed, as well as the addresses of
all of the residents on that street, and
most of them object to the change.
Frank Stohler stated that he is
opposed to this, and he feels that there
are more important issues that need
to be considered. Money discussed
that the purpose of holding a public
hearing is to get the general opinion
of the public concerning an issue, and
he also stated that a taxpayer
requested the Board pursue this
action and the Board does try to
recognize the taxpayers' desires.
John Curcie discussed that businesses
on Santa Anna Street would have to go
through an address change, and the
hardships this would cause. Peters
then moved that the name of Santa
Anna Street remain the same, Traylor
seconded the motion. Branch discus-
sed that a motion is not needed to
leave something as-is. Peters stated
that he made the motion so this would
not be brought back before the
Board,a nd Branch stated that it could
still be brought back before the Board.
Upon vote, the motion passed unani-
Larry Brollard, of Gulf Aire,
reported to the Board that nothing has
been done about the sewage running
on the ground in front of the Gulf Aire
Wastewater Treatment Plant. He also
reported that his cable bill was raised
71.7 percent instead of 61 percent, as
he previously stated. He discussed the
possibility of the Board getting-
another cable company to provide
Gulf County's service. Birmingham
stated that the Board has no control
over the Gulf Aire Wastewater
Treatment Plant, and upon the
Chairman's inquiry, Wells reported
that the Board did write a letter to the
Department of Environmental Regu-
lation concerning this problem. Wells
stated that an immediate response
was requested, but has not been
received. Money reported that' he
made a visual inspection of this area,
and it is causing a problem. Birming-
ham also stated that the Board is
working on a solution to the cable
television problem, but they cannon
'control the company's rates. He also
reported that he had expected a
representative from the company to
be here tonight, but has not seen
anyone. Peters then read a letter from
the Board to U.S. Cable Television
Group, dated July 26, 1988, about the
rate change. Money then discussed
the possibility of revoking the com-
pany's franchise. Rish stated that the
franchise is non-exclusive, therefore
other companies can come in and
provide this service. He also stated
that the franchise can be revoked if
the company is in violation. Bir-
mingham reported that the Board is
Checking for areas of violation, and he
has made the company aware of it.
Marion Hough, of Beacon Hill,
appeared before the Board to discuss
the flood damage at St. Joe Beach
which occurred on August 15, 1988.
She requested that each of the
following property owners give his-
her name and the approximate
amount of damage each received, if
available: Johnny Elwide, $3,500 to
$4,500; Frank Stohler, $3,500; Merle
McCombs, $1,400; Margaret Smith;
Bill Morgan; Marie Anema, $2,500;
and Jean Arnold.
Ms. Hough then gave a present-
ation before the Board discussing
what she feels caused the flooding,
and who is liable for the damages. At
the request of the Chairman, Road
Superintendent Lester gave a report
of the problems with maintenance of
the "scoop." Ms. Hough further
discussed the, water problems, and
drew a diagram on the blackboard.
She showed that the problem began at
Sea Shores Subdivision (where there
used to be a retention area), and she
stated that the ditch systems on Court,
Ward, Ponce de Leon, Cortez, and
Desoto Streets were poorly maintain-
ed and inadequate. Ms. Hough read a
letter she wrote to Benny C. Lister on
August 19, 1988, requesting he contact
the proper official to send a crew to
clean the ditches at St. Joe Beach, and
she discussed the Writ of Mandamus
she filed against the Boafd. She then
requested that the Board direct Road
Superintendent Lester to immediately
begin cleaning the drainage ditch
systems at St. Joe Beach. Jean Arnold
discussed that water ran from Sea
Shores Subdivision onto her property,
and caused excessive damage. Bir-
mingham stated that. the Board
realizes this is a serious problem, but
they cannot discuss liability at this
time due to a lawsuit filed by Ms.
Hough. He also stated that they are
having people look into this situation
for a long-term solution (re-routing
the water), but a decision cannot be
Ralph Nance, of St. Joe Beach,
discussed the day of the flood, and
discussed how fast it occurred. He
also reported on a previous discussion
with Mr. Gissendanner when he came
to check on the construction setback
William Terrace, of St. Joe
Beach, appeared before the Board to
request that they revert a 12 foot ditch
easement back to the property
owners. He stated that they would like
to fill in the ditch, because the County
has never maintained it. He presented
a petition signed by those who want
the ditch back, and he discussed the
problems with those who want the
ditch back, and he discussed the
problems with mosquitos and snakes.
Mr. Terrace also requested that the
Board fill in the ditch for them.
Birmingham stated that the Board
would have to look at the ditch to see if
they can revert or close the ease-
ments, then the Board would haveto
vote on it. He requested that Lester
and the members of the Board take a
look at this ditch, and they can
possibly handle this at the next
meeting. Peters reported'that he has
seen this ditch, and would recommend
that it be piped in order to maintain
proper drainage. John Curcie discus-
sed that the ditch does not drain
further than the next street because
there is a trailer at the end that would
be flooded. Birmingham reported that
they ,would make an inspection and
bring this back before the Board at the
Leland Everett, of St. Joe Beach,
discussed his background work in-
volving water, and stated that the
ditches and pipes at St. Joe Beach

residents. He stated that he feels
someone with the County was not
doing his job. Everett then thanked

assistance, and thanked Peters for
coming to the scene and for his

that the ditches were not cleaned and
that they had tried to get them
cleaned. He reported his property
damage as being approximately
Margaret Smith, of St. Joe Beach,
stated that she had losses, too, but
everyone makes mistakes. She stated
that everyone needs to go from here,
and come up with a solution. She
requested that the Board try to clean
the ditches at least four times each
Birmingham stated that Road
Superintendent Lester has been di-
rected to look at the whole area of St.
Joe Beach, and the Chairman request-
ed that he clean the ditches and
culverts in that area as soon as
possible. Mr. Everett stated that the
old 1932-33 maps would show the flow
of water in that area, and these flows
are not supposed to be interrupted.
Peters discussed& that he obtained
maps from the Property Appraiser so
the Board could work out a solution
for the area, and he stated that he has
pictures of the flooded areas which
may be helpful. He assured the people
that they are working on a solution.
Birmingham requested that any Com-
missioner with suggestions get with
Road Superintendent Lester to dis-
cuss them. Pursuant to an earlier
question, Rish stated that Sea Shores
Subdivision was accepted, but the
owners are required to retain respon-
sibility for the streets and right-of-
ways for a one year period.
The Board then recessed for a
short break and reconvened after 15
Pauletta Owens appeared before
the Board on behalf of Gerald D.

appeared before the Board stating
that a temngrary power pole was
donated to thenmfor-construction at
the Beacon Hill Park, andtlIey have
paid $25.00 deposit to have power
connected. He requested on behalf of
the Jaycees, that the Board pay the
monthly electricity bill (until con-
struction is finished), and he reported
that it would be a minimum monthly
bill. Branch moved the Board pay the
bill through Parks and Improvements
Fund, if it is for construction of the
park. Burch confirmed that it is for
construction of the park. Money
seconded the motion. Birmingham
stated that this does not need to be
paid out of the Road Department fund,
because of the unexpected expenses
there. Upon vote, the motion passed
unanimously. Birmingham directed
Lister to pay this out of the Capital
Outlay Parks and Improvements
Mosquito Control Director Graves
requested the Board allow his employ-
ees to be off on Labor Day. Upon
motion by Branch, second by Traylor,
and unanimous vote, the Board
approved this request.
Wells reported that Oscar Redd

Highway 71, and contact Apalachicola
Northern Railroad asking them to
repair it. Commissioners discussed
making the request to the Department
of Transportation. Traylor moved the

pair this crossing. Branch seconded
the motion, and it passed unanimous-
ly. Birmingham directed Wells to
write these letters.

ment to advertise to receive bids for a

cloth has contacted him and Peters;
requesting the Board allow him to
park his trailer at the White City
Park. He reported that Faircloth is a
Major with the Department of Correc-
tions, and is moving here to work at
the Howard Creek prison. He stated
that Faircloth has reviewed and
agreed to the contract, therefore he is
requesting permission from the
Board. Birmingham requested that
Branch meet with Faircloth and bring
a recommendation back to the Board
at the next regular meeting. The
Board had no objection.
Wells presented a "cable televi-
sion" map, showing areas of the
County that are serviced by Multivi-
sion. Upon inquiry by Birmingham,
Wells stated that the areas which they
are in violation in have not been
marked yet. Birmingham requested
' Manuel mark the areas where they do
not conform to the approved utility
permits. He also requested that
Manuel contact the company to find
out exactly what changes they made -
proposed. He stated that a representa-
tive was supposed to be here tonight,
and he directed Wells to write a letter
to U.S. Cable Television Group,
requesting they have someone attend
the next regular meeting.
Upon request by Lister, .Birming-
ham appointed Branch, Money, and
Peters to serve on the Property
Appraisal Adjustment Board. Upon
inquiry by Branch, Birmingham
requested that Rish research whether
or not the Board of County Commis-
sion Chairman is required to serve on
the Property Appraisal Adjustment
Board. He also directed Lister to
notify the School Board of these
Lister read a letter from County
employee Tonya Knox, requesting
that the Board allow her to purchase a
Court Reporting matching which is not
being used. Rish stated that inventory-
-surplus property items must be
auctioned or bidded off. Birmingham
directed Lister to notify Ms. Knox of
this. Peters moved the Board place
this piece of property up for bid. Risli
stated it would be better to take bids
on all of the items at one time. Lister
reported that there are many items
that have been junked. Wells discus-
sed that this year's inventory is due to
be turned in on September 30. Peters
withdrew his second, and requested
that Lister make a list of everything
that can be auctioned. Upon recom-
mendation by Rish, Birmingham
requested that Lister make a list of all
items that the Board has junked, after
September 30, for the purpose of
bidding them off. Branch discussed
the possibility of donating these
junked items to the senior citizens or
the retarded center, since the County
has had problems actually going
through with an auction in the past.
Lister discussed an invoice from
the Department of Employment Se-
curity for unemployment compensa-
tion for Michael A. Fennell, in the
amount of $452.54. Upon inquiry,
Mosquito Control Director Graves
reported that at the end of Fennell's 90
day, he did not work out and they let
him go. Birmingham directed Lister
to pay the invoice.
Ralph Rish, of Baskerville-Dono-
van Engineers, gave an update of the
progress of the drawing, plans, and
permitting for the entrance road to
the Beacon Hill Park. He presented
the drawings to the Board for their
preliminary approval. Rish question-
ed whether or not the Board wanted
mitered ends on the culverts, though it

the permit application would be
submitted as soon as possible.

ly. Birmingham appointed Wells,
Lister, and Property Appraiser Col-
bert to serve on the health insurance

tee. He directed Wells to write a letter
to Colbert. notifying him of' the
Board's request that he serve oni this

Donna McCroan, Deputy Clerk in
charge of insurance, be available to
assist him. *"

ial left from the Knowles Avenue
paving project to pave this portion of
Peters discussed his research on
the Road Department employee that
has been out of work for a long period
of time, but a position is'being held for

reported that he met with Marvin
Riley, and they looked at a possible
alternative.to run the water from Gulf
Aire Drive to the corner where there

What Must One Do
to Obey God?
By: Otis Catrett
What must one do to obey God?
In Matthew 7:21, our Lord, early
in his ministry, and to make crystal
clear, his divine right, to enjoin
obedience, on his followers said, "Not
every one that saith unto me. Lord,
Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of
heaven, but, he that doeth the will of
my father, which is in heaven." In
Luke 6:46 he later added to this, "And
why call ye me. Lord, Lord, and do
not. the things which I say." And, to
certain Jews, who evidenced an
interest in his ministry, and.-believed
"on" him, he said, "If ye continue in
'my word,' then are ye my disciples
indeed. And ye shall know the truth,
and the truth shall make you free."
Did the "truth" of which our Lord
spoke, include the plan of salvation,
it's nature, and purpose? Surprising-
ly, some among us today, think not.
Does one obey God,-who ignorantly, or
otherwise, substitutes human reasons
for divine reasons in one's encounter
with him? Some think so. Obedience
to our Lord requires for us to do what
the Lord said, in the way the Lord said
sion, Birmingham directed Wells to
work with Rish and Deputy Clerk
Collier to advertise to receive propos-
als for handling the garbage in Gulf
County. After further discussion,
Birmingham requested that the speci-
fications be written so that each
company will make a proposal of what
services they are willing to provide, at
What amount, and he requested that
Branch approve the specifications
before they are advertised.
S Upon request by Harrison, Bir-
mingham directed Wells to write the
Beaches Volunteer Fire Department,
thanking them for their quick re-
sponse and assistance during the
flooding at St. Joe Beach.
Birmingham presented an agree-
ment between the Apalachee Regional
Planning Council, the Gulf County
Board of County Commissioners, and
Raffield Fisheries, granting Rat-
field's a one-year moratorium on
repayment of their loan. Upon motion
by Branch, second by Traylor, and
'unanimous, vote, the Board approved
signing the agreement.
Rish discussed the difficulty that
the Clerk and Attorney Gibson are
having in obtaining the source codes
for the computer system from Jeff
Schindler, of Data Automation. He
reported that Schindler is planning to
attend the next meeting, and if he does
not. present the codes, they are
planning to sue him. Rish and Lister.
discussed that the warranty may run
out before the next meeting, and
requested permission to go ahead with
the lawsuit if we are going to run out
of time. Birmingham directed Rish to
do whatever he feels is necessary.
There being no further business,
the meeting did then adjourn.
do it, and, for the reason or reasons
that the Lord said do it. In John 8:31
Jesus said, "If ye continue in my
word, then, are ye my disciples
indeed." "If ye continue." The word
continue means to bring through to an
end, to finish full Y, to remain with.
The new King James version says, "If
ye abide in my word". The word abide
means to standfast, remain to submit
to and carry out such as a rule or
decision and in our case here, Jesus'
word. So, Jesus is saying, if you
continue, if you remain, steadfast,
submit to and carry out, my word, you
will be my disciple indeed. Here is
where our Lord is being misunder-
stood. His word, continue, is being
replaced with the word believe. The
word believe means to take as true,
real, to have confidence in a state-
ment, or promise. So Jesus says, there
is more to being a disciple of his, than
just believing. He said, "If you
continue in my word, you are my
disciples indeed." When our Savior's
work is taught for doctrine with a
meaning other than which he gives,
this is vain teaching.
What must one do to obey God:
The question really answers itself,
obey. Look at it this way, Heaven is
God's home, would you allow someone
to come into your home and change
your way of living? To sit at your
dining table, without washing the dirt
and dust from their hands before
eating? Certainly not! Well, God will
not allow it either, you must have your
sins washed away before entering
God's home. You must be baptized for
remission of sins. Not after you enter,
but before you can enter. Everyone is
invited to study with the Church of
Christ, we meet at 20th St. and Marvin
Ave. at 10:00 a.m. Sunday and 7:00
Wednesday evenings for Bible study.

Fall Season Brings Colorful Display
by Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Director
For centuries, the brilliant
change of leaf colors each fall was
surrounded by mystery and supersti-
tion. From Jack Frost to the blood of
the great bear, almost every society
has its own legend explaining the
phenomenon Today, plant scientists
have finally unraveled .the secrets of
We may not see the inevitable
bursting of vivid fall leaf color our
northern neighbors enjoy each year,
but we do have enough temperature
region plants in some parts of Florida
to give us some seasonal changes in
foliage hues. Even Floridians residing
in the southern most portions of our
state might like to know why the
leaves of some trees and shrubs
change color as the weather cools
in Northern areas. My information on
fall leaf colors were provided by
Extension Urban Horticulture Spe-
cialist Dr. Robert Black of the
University of Florida's Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sciences.
The brilliant display of autumn
leaves is brought on by a combination
of things falling temperatures,
shorter days, and certain chemical
substances, called pigment, found in
Some of the pigments that give
autumn leaves their colors are
actually present in the leaves as soon
as they unfold in the spring. But,
during spring and summers, when the
plants are growing vigorously, a
