The traffic light shown in the picture below, is a bone of con-
tention with the Department of Transportation. The DOT says it
is not needed at its location at the Intersection of Highway 98 and

strongly, that the light be taken down and its service discontin-

Transportation and maintained, by the DOT for several years.
Now, DOT traffic engineers say traffic counts at the Intersection

Cable TV Firm Says It Will
Shape Up on Service, Signal
Multivislon cable TV officials
assured residents from the Cape
San Bias and Gulf County beach-
es areas in a meeting last week,.
they would correct several com-
plaints offered by residents of
the affected areas.
Complaints were recently
aired against the firm at the
County Commission, charging
bad reception, poor service, un-
buried cables and dissatisfaction
*with a channel package the sys-
tem has recently adopted.
Multivision recently pur-
chased the system from Essex,
who had also received numerous
complaints from the beaches are-
as. St. Joe Beach residents were
complaining the company re-
quired them to purchase an ex-
pensive channel package which
contained more channels than
they wanted at a higher price
than they had been paying.
Multivision recently agreed
to reinstate the package of nine
channels to customers who were
on the system prior to the change
in offerings, If the customer re-
quested it. They re-affirmed this
intent this week.
The officials made a promise
to clean up reception in the St.
Joe Beach area, but said a new
tower was neede4j in the Cape vi-
cinity to improve reception. A
new tower is planned but will not
be installed for approximately 60
days. In the meantime, Multivi-
sion will attempt to improve the
signals in that area.
Customers in Wewahitchka
had complained about reception,
but the official said he didn't
know the cause of this complaint
and said all he could do was to
look into the problem.

Shrubs Being Planted On Reid
Project First of Several Planned for Improving Street's Appearance
Work is scheduled to get un-
derway before the week is out on
installation of floral greenery on
A joint venture of the Mer-
chants Association and the City
of Port St. Joe, the greenery is be-
ing installed on both sides of the
street in an effort to beautify the
downtown area and provide some
eye pleasing sights on the street.
The project is the result of several
months of planning on the part of
a lot of people and a considerable
expenditure on the part of the
Merchants Association and the
The project is another in a
series of activities being under-
taken to make the city more
pleasing to the eye for visitors
The planting will consist of
six installations of six foot red tip
shrubs in "dead" spots in the
parking areas of Reid Avenue be-
tween First and Fifth Streets.
Plans were to have the plants
all in place in time for the Sesqui-
centennial celebration next week,
but unexpected delays in securing
grates to be placed around the
base of the plants has set the pro-
ject back nearly a week.
Grates were to have been de-
livered to the city Tuesday after-
noon, and installation of the
plants is expected to get underway
Wayne Taylor, president of
the Merchants Association, said
if time prohibits installation of
all the plants before next week
end, a few will be put in each
block to provide some greenery
the entire length of the street in
time for the parade Saturday. "Af-
ter the parade, we will go back and
fill in the voids the week after,"
Each block is to have six of
the plants installed; three on each
side of the street.
Planting of the shrubs is the
first of several things which have
been planned for Reid Avenue
Editorials and Comments
Thursday, November 24,1988 P
There is much to be thankful for this year, as every year,
here In (ulf County.
Most of what we have to be thankful from is that we don't
have the degree of bad things happening in our county as is
happening in other counties and communities. That's sort of a
back handed way to be thankful but it's better than being sorry
that things are worse than what they are.
For instance, we're thankful the drug problem is no worse
than what it is in Gulf County. From what we read in the Talla-
hassee Democrat these past few days, other communities, espe-
cially larger cities, are in a virtual state of warfare with the
narcotics problem. People lock themselves in their homes,
stand guard over their possessions and fear for their safety, all
because of the drug problem.
We are all obsessed with the need to handle this insidious
cancer which has struck our nation, but here in Gulf County we
don't have to consider our every move based on how it might
make us vulnerable to drug users.
We can be thankful that our jobs were very stable this past
year. In other parts of our nation, we hear and read of reports
where people are having their livelihood yanked out from un-
der their lifestyle, causing people to be faced with the prospects
of having to pull up roots and move to another locale in order
to make a living. Here in Gulf county, there has been a mini-
mum of that sort of thing.
We can be thankful we didn't have a "Kate" visit us again
this year. Actually, all the "Kates", "Gilberts", etc., passed us by
without even a stiff breeze coming our way.
We can be thankful the drought which affected so much of
our country this past year, didn't have the adverse effects on us
as it did some other parts of our country. Of course, the Apa-
lachicola River dried up to almost a trickle. Water transporta-
tion was at a standstill because of lack of water in the channel,
but we always had plenty to drink, our crops fared pretty well,
we always had plenty of water to keep St. Joe Forest Products
operating, which was more than many other parts of the coun-
try could boast.
We can all be thankful our nation is at peace and has been
all year long. There haven't been many years since December 7,
1940, when our nation hasn't been at war somewhere. For this,
we can bow or heads and give a special prayer of thanks.
Our City Commission is going to have a session with the
Florida Department of Transportation in just a few days about
traffic lights inside the city. DOT says we don't need them and
the Commissioners think differently. It's going to be interest-
ing to see whose will prevails in this matter.
For years, the DOT has suggested, very strongly, that the
City should remove traffic signals from state highways and
even said a signal isn't needed on Reid Avenue.
Of course, we say, what does DOT know about our situation?
What does DOT know about having to walk to the post office
during the daytime traffic? What does DOT know about trying
to negotiate the intersee at the-Idt1eherly in the morning,',
at noon or in the afterndon when everyone is tying to go home&
at the same time?
All DOT sees concerning these two intersections are the re-
sults which come from a counting machine installed in the vi-
cinity. The numbers may not be there to support need of a sig-
nal light, but neither does the counting machine tell the story
about the numbers which are recorded all being placed on the
recorder in a period of about two hours during the day. This
tells another story: different from the one on the recording ma-
chine. It tells the story about why the signals are there in the
We feel DOT will meet some stiff resistance if they persist in
having our traffic signals removed. The Commission is going
to tell them how they are going to do things, regarding the traf-
fic lights and advise DOT that is the way things are going to be.
That's exactly what they need to do and we applaud them for ar-
riving at that stance even before DOT comes down here-making
their demands about the lights.
The Commission has already decided to stand pat on the
highway intersection light and tell DOT they are putting up a
state-approved light system at the Second Street intersection.
We hope DOT will be satisfied with that plan. If they are, that
will mean everyone is satisfied and we like for everyone to be

Holidays Are For Taking, Despite the inconvenience
HOIZDATS ARE ALWAYS wel-
come here at The Star. even
though they discombobulate our,
schedule at times. If you are above
the age of 40, you know how im-
portant schedules are to our men-
tal? well being. Disturbing the
schedule of us mature adults is
one of the most disturbing things
one can do.
Even so, with the schedule
disturbed and all, the holidays
Disturbing our schedule here
at The Star is really a major oper-
ation. We operate on a strict
schedule of doing certain things
at certain times and on certain
days in order to meet our press
deadline and our printing dead-
line right on time. So, disturbing
our schedule is serious business to
us. It's worse than your wife di-
recting a spring cleaning session
around, your home. Having our
schedule disturbed is more drastic
than just being forced to eat sand-
wiches just because the cook stove
is undergoing repairs at meal
IN SPITE OF ALL THE prob-
lems caused by holidays, we're
glad to see them come along. I
guess you could say we view holi-
days with mixed feelings.
First, when holidays come
along, it means we have to adjust
our printing and mailing day.
Normally, we mail on Wednesday
afternoon, print about an hour
earlier than we mail and have a
deadline of Tuesday noon for ad-
vertising and news items being
This last deadline is seldom
adhered to, but it gives us a reason
if we have to leave something out
of the paper because we just can't
find a hole to put it in.
Making up the paper on A
Monday and a Tuesday, rather
than Tuesday and Wednesday can
drastically alter that situation of
making the page space and the
news items come out even.
BUT, ENOUGH OF our prob-
lems with holidays. Let's get into
the pluses of the situation.
I think the pluses outweigh
the problems. At least they make
them seem more palatable and
easier to accept as a part of a hol-
iday. Holidays are welcome by me
because they mean a. couple of
days off. Of course, a day or two
off means having to do everyday
requirements either before or af-
ter the holiday. Just like writing
this column. It's normally writ-
ten on a Friday. A Friday off
means it has to be written some
Even though there is that ob-.
ligation staring me in the face,
my primary interest Is going to be
centered on turkey, sweet potato
souffle, mince meat pie, etc.
Now, you see what I mean
when I say the pluses will out-
weigh the minuses? Somehow, I
find it far more satisfying to
dwell on these things than I do on
when this column is going to get
I'm sure you had rather dwell
on these items rather than worry
about reading this column, too.
A HOLIDAY IN THE middle of
the week lets us see how the other
half live, who have days off in the'
middle of the week. Have you ever
thought' of a day off in the middle
of the week as a luxury? If it isn't
Saturday, you should be working.
Sunday doesn't count, because you
should be in church on Sunday.
'On of the things I will;:look
forward to at retirement age, is
taking a day off in theomiddle of
the week. Actually, these middle
of.the week holidays sort of get us
ready for what is. to come one day,
but not having to go to work in the
middle of the week will be a dras-
tic change inlifestyle one day.
I took a few days off three

STILL, JUST TO prove my re-
silience in the matter, I'm going to
concentrate on doing nothing ex-
cept what I want to on Thursday

Friday off, too. I'm just going to
stay confused about what day it is
until Monday of next week and let
the good times roll.
I'm going to eat too much. I'm
going to watch too much football
on TV. I'm going to sleep too late
in the mornings, stay up too late
at night and just generally do all
those things I don't do every day

Some Things I'm Thankful For
All of us, I think, can think of something to be thankful for
this Thanksgiving. I have much to be grateful for the whole year
and I'm especially thankful this Thanksgiving.
-I'm thankful that my family and I are together and all of us
are in good health. If I don't quit eating so much between Christ-
mas and Thanksgiving I won't be healthy long, thought.
-Thank God that I have a job that offers me the opportunity
to work when and as much as I want. With the obligations I have,
I'm forced to work most of the time. I'm continually on my toes.
that's for surely
-Along that same line, let me say that I'm thankful that I don't
travel any longer. I don't mean go on trips for fun; I'm talking
traveling for a living. Ten years of motels and restaurants is
enough for a lifetime.
-I'm especially thankful that my family and I live in our town.
We wouldn't live anywhere else, given that option. It's the people
that make a town and this one is blessed with some outstanding
folks. There are of course, some that try to make life miserable
for us, but they ain't "folks," they are called another name and I
will write more about them next week.
-I'm thankful for our dog. We have had an assortment of dogs
and cats over the years and now we have another dog. I'm partic-
ularly thankful that my son has him in Tallahassee and we don't
have to raise another (dog) child.
-I'm thankful for the group of guys I play cards with; thankful
that I don't see them but once a week. There are better looking
men on death row in Raiford. I won't mention any names unless
they say anything about this article. I really don't know why I
hang around with them.
-I'm thankful for the spare tire in my pickup truck. I haven't
had to use it, but it sure is comforting knowing it's there. I have
owned vehicles in the past that had less than a worn-out spare
on the ground.
-I'm thankful for the pine trees that grow so plentiful in our
town and are so beautiful. Thank goodness that most of them
grow in the woods and in other people's yards. I have one in my
yard and it keeps me busy. I can image what several would be
-The last thing I'm thankful for is that Billy Barlow is my
friend. Over the years I've heard several people say different
things about Billy, all of which I'm sure are true. I'm still glad he
Is my friend. What if he were related to me?
I'm thankful for everything! Life has never been better and I
hope the same goes for you and yours.

Quincy Rotary Bowl. The game
will take place at 7:30 p.m. at Car-

The Financial Aid Workshop
was a big success. Many ques-

answered. If there are any more
questions, however, do not hesi-
tate to call the guidance depart-
ment at Port St. Joe High School.
Seniors are encouraged to go
talk to your counselor, Mrs. Riley,
and learn more about "Choices".
This program helps students in
choosing a career, a college or
university, or perhaps a scholar-
ship or other means of financial
aid that may suit the individual.
The Leadership Committee
would like to extend their grati-
tude to the administration of Port
St. Joe High School, the School
Board as well as others that made
their trip to the ISLI Leadership
Conference a reality. The stu-
dents learned a lot about being
effective leaders and will use this
knowledge to better the school.

Wewahitchka's Gators scored
five times Friday night to trounce
the Apalachicola Sharks 48-12 and
win a five-place tie for their Dis-

The Gators had Michael Myers
run amok, scoring every time he
got the ball in his possession.
Myers scored twice on kick re-
turns, once on a punt return and
caught two passes for TD's. Quar-
terback Mike Sewell and Philip

35 yard toss from Larry Crooms for
the Sharks and the score stood at 21-
12, Gators, at half time.
Myers, nor the Gators, were
through yet. Myers took the second
half kick-off and raced for an 85
yard TD. Myers scored twice more
in the third period, fielding passes
of 40 and seven yards to put the Ga-
tors in complete control.
Phillip Griffin put the cap on
the Gator victory in the fourth peri-
od, scoring on a three yard plunge.
The Gators finished their regu-
lar season with a 7-3 record, after a
shaky start. The team won its last
six games, four of which were
against District foes to gain the
five-way tie for the District title.

The Sharks finished their reg-
ular season Friday on a winning
note, dumping the Marianna Bull-
dogs 19-6. The Sharks ended with a
7-3 record and made a serious run
at the District championship.
With David Barnes sitting on
the sideline with a badly sprained
ankle, the Sharks' offense was
sluggish and without much imag-
ination. But, they persisted and got
the job done.
The Sharks pounded out 124
yards on the ground, mostly up the
middle and added 94 yards through
the air on seven completed passes
as their heralded defensive unit
gave up only 126 total yards.
The Bulldogs scored first in the
game, after the teams had traded
possession of the ball early in the
first stanza. The Bulldogs fielded
a Shark punt and started their scor-
ing drive on their own 41 yard
line. Richard Whitehead broke
loose for the Bulldogs for a 24 yard
run in the drive which ended with
Lloyd Benson scoring from the 10
with 2:26 left in the period. Jamme
Bowers' kick was no good and that
was all the points the Bulldogs were
to get Friday night.
The Sharks had the ball fourth
and six on the Bulldogs' 19 yard
line as the second period opened.
Then Kevin Cox hit Eric Langston
with an 18 yard pass and on the
next play, Nicholas Rolack, the
workhorse of the Shark running
game Friday night, scored to knot
the score 6,6. Bobby Williams'
kick for the point after was wide,
failing to put the Sharks ahead.
That situation didn't last for
very long. On their very next pos-
session, which the Sharks man-

Rolack plunged over from the one
yard line for the Sharks' final TD
of the game. Bobby Williams got
on the beam with his final kick

Predicted for Thanksgiving Weekend .
Predicted for Thanksgiving Weekend
42 Will Die on Florida
The Florida Highway Patrol
has predicted 42 persons will die
in Florida traffic, accidents during
the upcoming Thanksgiving holi-
day period beginning at 6:00 p.m.,
Wednesday, November 23 and
ending midnight, Sunday, Novem-
ber 27. This prediction is based
on data collected over the three
previous Thanksgiving holiday
Bobby R. Burkett, Director of
the Florida Highway Patrol, stat-
ed, "If predictions are correct, this
will amount to one death occur-
ring every two hours and twenty-
minutes during this holiday peri-
od, creating needless tragedy and
grief for many families."
Department records reveal
that 47% of last year's Thanksgiv-
ing holiday fatalities were alcohol
related. According to Director
Burkett, "Drinking and driving
continues to be our number one
problem in traffic safety. This
problem can be significantly re-
duced through public coopera-
tion coupled with strict enforce-
ment of the law.
"Every available trooper will
be on patrol duty throughout the-
State to help curb this needless
tragedy," said Director Burkett,
"and alcohol-related offenses and.
speed violations will be our top,
enforcement priorities. I appeal
to the motoring public to support
our efforts to save lives this
Thanksgiving holiday by report-'
ing any impaired drivers to the
nearest Florida Highway Patrol'
station or other law enforcement-
agency and to always wear safety
belts," he concluded.

The Season Is Here to Begin Planting Shrubs and Trees
By Roy Lee Carter
'County Extension Director
A beautiful home landscape
can represent a major invest-
n)ent, a sizable portion of which
14 often accounted for by trees
and shrubs. So, it's important to
plan carefully, but only from rep-
utable nurseries, and take care of
your new plants properly as soon .
as you get them home.
Most of us add trees and
shrubs to our home grounds now
and then. As we contemplate
such a project, we face a common
question: When is the best time to
plant? Generally speaking, the
answer is: during late fall and
winter months. So, if you're think-
ing about setting some new trees
or shrubs on your landscape, now
is probably the time to do it. How-
ever, this isn't a hard and fast
rule, because, as we'll find out to-
day, the way a plant is packaged
at the nursery has a lot to do with
the best time to plant it.
A couple of obvious excep-
tions to the fall planting rule are
evergreens and palms. It's best to
plant evergreens in August or ear-
ly September. Palms should be
planted during the summer rainy
However, as I said earlier,,
planting time also can vary ac-
cording to the way the plants are
packaged. Plants usually are pre-
pared for sale in one of four ways.
They may be 'bare root" form, with'
the bare roots wrapped in saw-
dust, bark or peat moss. Plants
may be sold "barred and bur-
lapped", with the root soil ball
wrapped in burlap. Many plants
are sold as "container' grown"
plants, in which case- the root
system isn't disturbed at all until
For the most part, "bare root", -
packaged "bare root", and "ball
and burlapped" plants will have a
higher survival rate if they're
planted in the late fall or winter.
"Container grown" plants can be
added to the landscape anytime.
But you'll usually pay a lot more
for plants sold in containers.

The next thing we need to talk
about is preparing the planting
site. You should get the selected
site ready well in advance of buy-
ing a plant, so that you'll be able
to get it in the ground as soon as
you take it home. This is very im-
portant. If you wait even a few
days between purchase and
planting, a plant that was healthy
when you bought it may be in
poor shape by the time you set It
in your landscape. If you give a
little extra time and effort to site
preparation, you'll get your new
plant off to a much better start.
The job you do in preparing the
planting area will have a lot to do
with how your plant will look for
many years to come, perhaps its
Obviously, the first step is
digging a hole. Be sure you dig it
large enough. The hole should be
at least six inches deeper and
wider on all sides that the root
mass of the plant. Keep the sides
going straight down, rather than
sloped. Loosen the soil in the bot-
tom, to allow for root develop-
Your next step will be to add
some soil amendment to the
earth you've removed from the
hold soil that will be used to fill in
around the roots when you set
your plant. Mix one part soil .
amendment with every two parts
of the soil you plan to use I setting
your plant. Then, place about six
inches of the amended soil back
in the hole. Pack the added soil
down fairly well, so the plant
doesn't settle after it's set.
Next, stand the plant upright
in the center of the hole, and turn
it so that its best side is visible.
Make sure there's plenty of room
for the roots. When working with
a bare root plant, make a cone
shaped mound of soil in the bot-
tom of the hole and arrange the
roots around it. They would be
spread naturally not cramped or
twisted. for a balled or burlapped
or container grown plant, handle
the soil all gently, being careful
not to break it. Make you place the
plant at the right level in the soil.
Planting too shallow can cause
the root to dry out. But, planting
too deep can suffocate roots, and
cause the base of the trunk to rot.
On bare root plants you can usu-
ally tell what the right level is, be-
cause there's a .color change
where the base of the trunk meets
the soil line.
Don't try to remove the burlap
on a ball and burlapped plant.
Simply roll the material down
away from the soil ball, and it will
decay naturally. Container grown
plants usually are sold in metal
cans, which must be carefully cut
away and discarded before plant-
After your plant is set, you're
ready to fill up the rest of the hole
with amended soil. Fill the hold 3/
4's full, keeping the plant in an up-
right position. Water thoroughly.
After the water settles, fill the rest
of the hold with amended soil, and
water again. Finally, make a rim of
soil a few inches high' and two or
three feet away from the plant's
trunk. This saucer shaped basin
will hold water, and direct it to the
roots of the plant.

ItT-Bags Big Buck
Ray Ramsey and David Ambrose took a hunt-
ing trip recently to middle Georgia to begin the
deer season. Ray killed this trophy size 14 point
buck and Ambrose killed a smaller deer with a
smaller rack. The two usually start every hunting
I season in Georgia but have never had this kind
of luck before.
The buck is leading in the Georgia Big Buck con-
test as of last week.

"The use or possession of
steel or leghold traps is prohibit-
ed where wildlife might be found,"
Smith said. 'The use of setguns
also is prohibited, and trappers
must visit their live traps or
snares every 24 hours."
Smith said a hunter pursuing
furbearers for sporting purposes
with a gun or dogs needs only a
hunting license or sportsman's li-
cense. However, anyone who plans
to sell the hides of furbearing ani-
mals or use live traps or snares to
take furbearers must have a trap-
ping license. Trapping licenses
cost $25 for residents and $100 for
nonresidents. A sportsman's li-
cense does not include trapping.
Licenses are available from coun-
ty tax collectors or their suba-
gents, who charge a fee in addition
to the cost of the license.
Smith advised anyone inter-
ested in participating in the fur-
bearer season to obtain the bro-
chure "Guidelines for the Taking of
