Annual C of C Meeting Monday Night


Four new directors will be
added to the Board by the Port
St. Joe/Gulf county Chamber of
Commerce at the annual dinner
meeting Monday night, according

McDonald.
The annual meeting will be a
banquet, catered by the Port St.
Joe Lions Club, in the Commons
Area of Port St. Joe High School.
The affair will begin at 7:00 p.m.
McDonald said there will be a


slight deviation from the usual

seated at the annual meeting," he
pointed out. "This year, the
Board of Directors will elect the
president at its March meeting."

He will be speaking to ap-
proximately 146 members of the
Chamber who have already indi-
cated they will attend the affair.
McDonald said he will be giv-
ing an annual report on the past
year's activity of the Chamber. He

ism, retirement, industrial and
agricultural activities.
New directors to be installed
,Ionday night include: Greg
Cohnson, Steve Richardson, Al
'Scheffer and Linda Bordelon.


Scallops


Being Harvested By

the Thousands of Tons


Eugene Raffield shows off size of deep sea scallops.


It takes a little more than a
snorkel and a crab net to bring in-
these sweet muscular morsels of
the sea. Large deep-water fishing
boats are bringing them in by the
tons, and have been for the past
month.
The product being harvested
is the calico scallop, which shows
up in this area about every 10 to
12 years, causing fishing boats to
work overtime to bring In the
popular mollusks before they dis-
appear as suddenly as they ap-
peared off the coast of Franklin
and Gulf counties.
A host of fishing boats from
Cape Canaveral, Carrabelle, Apa-
lachicola, Port St. Joe and Pana-
ma City have been involved In the
operation, which is landing its
catch at Carrabelle, Apalachicola
and Port St. Joe.
In Port St. Joe, the catch is
. Adedat Woods Fisheries and
Raffleld Fisheries and trucked to
Apalachicola or Cape Canaveral
to be shucked by mechanical
shuckers for the market.
HUGE CATCHES
According to Gene Raflleld,
local boats are having a field day
with the scallop harvest. "They go
out in waters 70 to 90 feet deep,
12 to 14 miles from shore. After


they get their drags on the bot-
tom, it takes from three to five
minutes to fill them with three to
five tons of the scallops. They are
that plentiful," he said.
About 30 boats are operating
in this vicinity, bringing in their
harvests to Franklin and Gulf
counties. 'The scallops brought
into our place last week shucked
out 21,000 gallons of scallop
meat, which shows the volume of
product involved here," Raffield
said.
When the harvest started,
scallops were bringing about
$27.00 per gallon. They are cur-
rently bringing $16 to $18 per
gallon and Raflleld said the pro-
ducers are still making money
with the harvest.
DIFFERENT BREED
Raffield said the scallops now
being caught in such numbers
are not the same scallop which
are, such favorites with sports-
men in the late summer and ear-
ly fall, when they are picked up
in the shallows of St Joseph Bay.
"This deep water variety we are
catching are calico scallops,
which are much smaller than the
variety picked up in the bay.
(See SCALLOPS Page 3)


We Have All Kinds
It doesn't take all kinds, but we have all kinds.
This time, from out of somewhere, there seemed to be a
person who enjoyed tearing something up just for the sake of
tearing something up. --
Sometime Saturday night, someone drove their vehicle up
to the sign in front of the Museum here in Port St. Joe,
pushed it over and drove away, having accomplished the feat
of tearing up something for no apparent reason.
Museum director, Luther Roth, said he could not imagine
why the sign was pushed over. "It will cost a few tax dollars to
put it back up," Roth said.


A boat load of scallops is a boat LOADED down with the shellfish.

Some Home Numbers Changing to Eliminate Duplication


The location of your home or business may soon
be identified by a simple number here in Gulf county.
Arriving at the particular number your home or busi-
ness will carry, hasn't been an easy or a short activi-
ty -on the part of those responsible with assigning
the numbers.
Dewayne Manuel, Gulf county's building depart-
ment officer has been the person most involved in
the assignment of property numbers throughout the
county and Manuel says the project is now winding
down to a close with just a few more trouble spots to
be ironed out.
"Many areas in the county have been assigned
numbers for some time. The designation has been
made by developers, incorporated communities and
other county governments." Manuel said. In the pro-
cess, however, some clusters of development have
duplicate numbers with other developments nearby
which could cause a problem in the future.
Because of this situation, Manuel is having to re-
number some spots in Highland View and Oak
Grove. '"We're going to keep the changes to a mini-


mum for the benefit of the residents. These people
have established addresses and we hate to change
them, but in some instances it is a necessity," Ma-
nuel said.
Of course, this is the reason the County Com-
mission has instructed Manuel to overhaul the
present numbering systems inside the county and
assign numbers where they do not exist.
With one person in charge of the system, the ac-
cidental duplication will be kept to a bare minimum
if not eliminated entirely.
WHY NUMBER?
Some people may ask why the numbers should
be placed on their property in the first place. In a
county the size of Gulf, nearly everyone knows every-
one else and has a petty good idea of where they live.
"Numbering, accurate numbering, is a necessity
for several services," Manuel said.
First, there is the convenience the system gives
to the county emergency services. "It's much more
accurate and quicker to give the ambulance driver a


correct address than it is to explain how to get to a
particular house. Too, the driver may not know the
person he is going to the aid of, but he knows where
that number is", Manuel said.
Law enforcement officers, answering calls for
assistance or protection, can find their way much
easier with an address and a number than they can
with'a description or a name. A description or a
name could be misunderstood, while an address and
number are easier to correctly understand.
Postal service also requires numbering of ad-
dresses for mail delivery. The postal service is con-
sidering house to house mail delivery in several
points in the county, but will not initiate the service
until proper address numbers are assigned and
posted.
911 SERVICE
One of the more important reasons for number-
ing buildings in the county is for the initiation of a
911 emergency service.
The 911 service is being put into action all over


the state of Florida and it is only a matter of time be-
fore it is initiated in Gulf county.
"911 service must have building numbering and
streets named to provide the service it is designed to
provide" Manuel said.
Actually, Manuel said Gulf county cannot pro-
ceed with procurement of the 911 service until it has
all streets in the county named and all designated
building lots numbered.
Manuel has pointed out on occasion his job
would have been easier if there had been no at-
tempts made at numbering in the county in years
past. He says his investigation into the matter has
turned up numbering systems for certain locations
which seemed to have no proper sequence at all.
'They were just numbered," Manuel said.
The cities of Port St. Joe and Wewahitchka are
already assigned numbers for their building lots.
This had to be done several years ago to provide
mail delivery service. It is in the outlying areas
where Manuel is having his problem. he says he is
near to having this problem solved, however.

Your Plans

We hope the County Commission can find it in its scope of
things to do. to begin making plans to finance the resurfacing
of C-30 from Highway 98 to the Franklin-Gulf county line.
Former Commissioner Billy Branch urged the Commission
to re-surface at least a portion of this road when they spent the
major portion of an accumulated re-surfacing budget a year ago
in re-surfacing a good portion of the Dalkeith Road.
This isn't to say the Dalkeith Road didn't need re-surfacing
and the Commission wasted the paving money on this project.
This is merely to point out that C-30 is in equal or greater need
of re-surfacing than the Dalkeith Road. It doesn't need to be ig-
nored much longer.
Commissioner Branch squawled to high heaven when his
fellow Commissioners voted him down when he proposed
spending half the re-surfacing stash on C-30, but, in all truth,
the Dalkeith Road did need surfacing.
So, now, Commissioners, you have the Dalkeith Road in
pretty good condition. It's time to direct your attention to the
needs of C-30, which is fast becoming one of the most travelled
roads in the county. Certainly it leads to a district wnich is be-
ginning to generate a major portion of tax money in the county.
Some of the most expensive property along the coast is to be
found along the C-30 route. It deserves paving attention.
We, along with everyone else in the county, are being patient
on these lines. We're willing to give the Commission the chance
to do the right thing on road paving in our county. The "right
thing" should be putting the re-surfacing money where it is
needed most, without regard to sectionalism.
If C-30 is by-passed in the next paving episode, we would
suggest that each of the County Commissioners be required to
ride to the county line and back on C-30 every day for a month.
There would then be a quick change in paving priorities.



Changing Rules

The big story in the sports world these days is whether or
not to require a young athlete going to college to ply his talents,
to make an acceptable grade on the entrance exam. It's either
make the grade, or he or she doesn't get the scholarship.
A college basketball coach. we have long admired, John
Thompson of Georgetown University, has entered a monumen-
tal objection to the requirements, saying they are too tough
and constitute a bias against blacks.
Walter Williams, another black we admire, who writes a
newspaper column every week says the tests do no such thing.
He points out the blacks may not be able to understand the
questions, but they can surely understand the math portion
and these are failed just as often as the other portions. In all
likelihood, the white athletes who fail the testing, 'do so with
equal ease, no matter which part of the test they are taking.
Thompson should be more interested in :his athletes pass-
ing the test than are his fans, or other officials of his school.
We always felt he was a character builder as well as a top-notch
coach. But, when one goes to watering down requirements so
anyone can pass, there is really no accomplishment for those
who do. .. .....
We had just as well toss the entrance exams into the trash
cans, disregard rules about paying athletes, remove the re-
quirement that they go to class to get an education, put all the
college athletes on the payroll and rename the NCAA the Col-
lege Football League or the College Basketball Association or
the College League for baseball. Why continue to kid ourselves
these magnificent young men who represent their schools so
well on any given Saturday afternoon, are, actually amateur
athletes who are full time students studying for a career and a
future?
Then again, maybe John Thompson is right. College ath-
letes have become a big business. Why kid ourselves into believ-
ing they are really students?
Realisticlaly, very few of the college athletes will go into the
future making their living from their athletic prowess. The
best chance they have for the future is to get their college degree,
earning an education with it, to use as an aid for securing their
career.
The black-and white--college athlete could have no better
favor done for him than that he be required to maintain cer-
tain academic levels if he is to get the chance to secure his fu-
ture,. in whatever endeavor.


I Hunker Down with Kes


I Could Do It


Without Setting


My Hair on Fire


Just saw this past week
where that Madonna lady signed
up to do some Pepsi commercials.
She agreed to sing about Pepsi's
for one year they agreed to pay
her 5 million dollars. Pepsi's al-
ready got Michael Jackson, Mike
Tyson and that short guy from
Family Ties and I don't know who
all else. Listen, you going to drink
Pepsi-Colas 'cause Madonna tells
you to? That's what I thought.
I've never heard this lady sing
and I've only seen a couple of pic-
tures of her, but she couldn't sell
me nothing. She looks like she
belongs on Startrek VIII The Far
Out And Long Gone Generation.
You know what I, mean? And


here's the part that really rubs
me raw I would'a done those
Pepsi commercials for half what
they paid her. Now, of course, I
didn't grow up drinking Pepsis.
But then, do you think Madonna
did? Shucks, she started out on
fruit punch and hi-test gasoline. I
don't think in today advertising
game you have to start drinking
the product 'till after they pay you
the money.
It wasn't always like that. You
take Tennessee Ernie Ford for in-
stance. Now, just as sure as I'm
sitting here, Ern has eaten Mar-
tha White biscuits for breakfast
everyday of his life. And so when
he comes on T.V. grinning and


Kesley 1 \, .

telling us how good those Martha
White folks are, why, he ain't in it
for the money he's Just looking
out for our best interest. He be-
lieves that Martha White is the
best. And I know you've heard
Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs
singing "goodness gracious, good
'n light Martha White". You could
just tell by the way those boys
had their hearts in it that they
were raised on Martha White -
"it's got hot rise".
Of course, not everyone saw it
like Lester and Earl. Hank Wil-
liams sang for Mother's Best
Flour. And they sold a pile of that
stuff back in the early fifties.
Most folks bought Mother's Best,


I think, to get that free towel that
was sewed onto every bag. Porter
Waggoner told us that Black
Draught Laxative would make us,
"Smile from the inside out". Now,
I never got desperate enough to
try that mixture but we fed old
Duke and Blue Purina when we
could afford it because Eddie Ar-
nold told us it was the best.
We wanted Ovaltine 'cause
that's what Captain Midnight
drank. And we believed that Won-
der Bread was the best because
Annie Oakley told us that "it
helped build strong bodies twelve
ways". We had a problem there,
they didn't sell Wonder Bread in
our area. We had to settle for Co-
lonial Bread and they didn't hard-
ly advertise at all except for that
sign hung across the screen door
at Woodrow Kennon's Grocery
Store. The sign right beside the
door reminded you to drink Nu
Grape Soda and on the other side
of the window was that big round
Orange Crush thermometer.
By today's standards, with
rock stars and baseball players
hawking their wares, nailing a
"I'd Walk A Mile For A Camel"
sign to the side of the store seems
like a simple way to advertise.

ETAOIN SHRDLU BY: WESLEY R. RAMSEY



The Johnny (Linton, not Carson) and Herb Show


HAVE YOU CAUGHT the
Johnny and Herb show lately? It
has been a while since I had ex-
perienced it but I had the oppor-
tunity the other day.
"Experienced" is the proper
word to use in this situation,
since "experienced" is what you
do when you .come in contact
with the Johnny and Herb show.
I had an occasion to go to the
Post Office Thursday of last week
and Johnny and Herb jumped on
me about allowing them to rebut
Shad Phantry's column of last
week. Johnny said, 'You just write
up something mean about old
Shad and Herb and I will sign it."
Johnny was wanting me to do his
dirty work for him.
Shad must have touched a
raw nerve on Johnny and Herb. I
knew they had plenty of nerve, but
I never knew one of them was raw.


I always thought all their nerves
were pretty grating on those of
other people. It's comforting to
know that even Johnny and Herb
have a tender nerve or two and
they can be touched by the right
[or wrong] word.

JOHNNY AND HERB proba-
bly run the most laid back post
office counter in the world.
I'm not being detrimental
about their manner of doing busi-
ness, either. Actually, if the post
office were to charge admission
at the door of the Port St. Joe of-
fice for patrons to get inside and
see the show, they could probably
make up some of that deficit they
are always talking about and be
able to reduce the price of a three
cent stamp more nearly to what it
should cost.
Too, if the post office hunted
talent like Johnny and Herb for
all their offices, it might stop
some of the grumbling about the


postal service as a whole. Here in
Port St. Joe, we get live entertain-
ment and comedy while being
separated from a quarter to send
a letter across town by way of
Panama City, Tallahassee, Do-
than or Jacksonville.
Johnny and Herb keep things
lively at the post office. They nev-
er seem to have a bad day.
I have been in dentists offices
which had a more cheery atmos-
phere than some post offices. Not
Port St. Joe. If you go in our office
and Johnny and Herb don't have
you laughing before you leave, you
get your stamp free. That last
guarantee is mine, not Johnny
and Herb's or the U.S. Post Office.
The post office doesn't give any-
thing for free.

LAST THURSDAY, THEY
were in fine form. While I was in
the office a mother and her young
son came in and had the misfor-:


tune to stop at Johnny's window.
Johnny, without cracking a
smile looked at the boy and
asked, "How old are you, son?"
The boy answered back, "Sev-
en!"
Johnny, with the same
straight face asked, "Are you mar-
ried?"
The boy's chin dropped leav-
ing his mouth gaping open; his
eyes opened wider, considering
the incredible question, and he
remained speechless.
Johnny, following up on his
soul-searching query, then asked,
"Is this lady your wife?"
By this time, the mother was
breaking up and the young boy
couldn't figure out what to say to
this crazy adult who was asking
him questions he didn't quite
know how to answer.
The boy finally blurted out a
scandalized, "Nol That's my moth-
er!" and promptly ducked behind
her skirts to hide from this man


and his outlandish questions.
A couple of seconds later a
man walked in and asked Johnny
for a book of stamps and quick as
a wink, Herb chimed in with, 'With
or without?"
Well, with a straight face say-
ing "this is a legitimate question"
Johnny and Herb finally ex-
plained the "With or without"
meant with or without them lick-
ing the stamp for you.
A reasonable question to
kooks like Johnny and Herb.
Later a man came by asking
for some stamped envelopes.
"Got 'em on sale today", John-
ny beamed. "How many do you
want?"
The customer replied, "About
Johnny handed out a handful
of stamped envelopes and asked,
"How near to six do you want to
get?"
The man took six and asked,
"How much do I owe you?"


Johnny was bubbling with
enthusiasm by this time and
chortled, "They're thirty cents
each, but I'll let YOU have six to-
day for only a dollar eighty!"
Herb then began mumbling
something about Johnny's "Aunt
Willa Dean" up in Indianapolis
being in the hospital after being
hit by a train.
"He's lying," Johnny retorted.
"I don't even have a aunt Willa
Dean and no kin folks at all in
Yankee country. The furthest
north Lintons have ever gotten is
to Two Egg and then had to leave
because they had only one."
c cac.cSC
THIS SORT OF thing goes on
all day, every day at the post of-
fice. It makes the visit lighter and
the service brighter, whether or
not it is any better.
And, by the way, 25t stamps
are "on sale" at the post office.
every day!

A Redneck Defined'

THERE have been several times in previous articles that I
have made light of our Northern brothers and sisters. Those re-
marks were made in fun and jest. Just as I was taunted and
teased when I visited one of our Northern cities several years
ago.
That was the time I took a blood oath never to cross the Ma-
son-Dixon line again, but I hold no grudges, understand. As a
matter of fact, I have several friends of the Yankee gender and
I'm glad to call them friends. .both of them. ..when we are
alone.
There is no question that we who live in the South are
blessed beyond compare. One need only look at the license
plates in Florida to know that we possess much that the rest of
the nation would like to have, namely property.
Although we are blessed to no end, let me say that we in the
South have our moments when we are not too impressive in our
social graces and appearances. In other words, being Southern
and talking slow is one thing, but being a downright, raised-in-
the-sticks "Redneck" is another.
In case you've never thought about a "Redneck" and what
one may be like, let me give you some points to look for to help
you pick one out the next time you stop by the local Bar-B-Q res-
taurant for some fried frog legs or go to P.C. to the 'rasselln
match.
A "Redneck" is a person who:
*Thinks cow manure on his boots is a status symbol.
*Believe the Titanic is a giant mountain in Georgia.
*Once saw a bidet and thought it was a misplaced water
fountain (I didn't take a drink, honest).
*Doesn't go to Tallahassee because he doesn't know how to
"drive under them lights."
*Thinks -they buried President John Kennedy six different
times because he saw re-runs on t.v. for three days.
*Loves his wife and chirren' almost as much as he does his
truck, dogs, drinking buddies collection of guns and George
Jones.
*Thinks it's a waste of time and water to take a bath every
other day.
*Thinks a boy ain't a man until he's been drunk and showed
his backsides, gotten into an all-out brawl and killed his first
deer.
*Thinks a "sperm count" is a bunch of people on a ship
counting whales.
*Thinks reincarnation is a brand of canned milk.
*Thinks cremation is a breed of cow that gives canned milk.
Finally, a "Redneck" is a person who works hard, respects
"Momma," the Flag, don't wear earrings, loves country music, en-
joys hunting and fishing and don't take a lot of "Bull" from no-
body!
They even got some of us up Northl

Also, the callico scallop never

Wewa Library

Changes Hours
The Gulf County Library at
Wewahitchka is rescheduling its
hours to provide open hours
more compatible with students
and working adults.
The Gulf County Advisory
Board voted that the library in
Wewahitchka should be open
from twelve noon until 5 p.m. on
Tuesday, Wednesdays, and
Thursday. This schedule opens
the library three days per week
during the lunch hours for adults
and extends library hours one
hour per day in the evening for
students.
The Port St. Joe Library hours
will remain the same, It is the de-
sire of the Advisory Board to in-
crease hours as funds are made
available.

open house on Thursday, Febru-
ary 2, from 6:00 8:00 p.m. in the
elementary school gymnasium.
The public is cordially invited to
view the scientific efforts of our
sixth graders in their first oppor-
tunity to participate in a Science
Fair.
Parents and other community

members are also invited to visit
the school on Frilay, February 3,
to view classroom projects, which
will be on display through the
school.

The local seafood dealer said
the bed currently being harvested
is some 20 miles long and 10
miles wide. He pointed out they
are:.,there each and every year,
somewhere. 'We just happened to
find them this year," he said.
The callico scallop doesn't
move around like the shallow bay
scallop does. He will be there in
his deep water location until the
water warms up and the fishing
boats will continue to take their
harvest until the water turns
warm.
Raffield said there is no way
they can catch them all. Harvest
activities thus far are about like
dipping up beach sand with a tea
spoon.
"If we don't catch them,
they'll die soon. Biologists say
their life cycle is such that the
calicos are impossible to over-
fish."

Request

to Dredging In

St. Joseph Bay
Dear Editor:
We have proposed the re-
dredging of what is known as
'Tapper's Cut" on the St. Joseph
Peninsular. Originally Tapper's
Cut was dredged to a depth of 12
to 14 feet with a 100 foot wide
bottom in the mid-sixties. This
original dredging was to facilitate
bringing in barges of rocks and
oyster shells for construction of
the road base to serve the entire
Peninsula and provide access to
the State Park.
There have been several let-
ters that have appeared in The
Star recently that have been
somewhat misleading. My propo-
sal is not to dredge across the
sensitive grass beds but simply to
maintain to a depth of only five'
feet, a channel that was formally
12 to 14 feet deep. This channel
will follow the route of the previ-
ous channel which is a sandy
bottom area. Although we have
studied the possibility of building
a championship golf course on
the Cape we have ruled it out as
not being feasible at .this time.
We have submitted an appli-
cation with the Army Corps of
Engineers to conduct this mainte-
nance dredging. We intend to
comply with all current environ-
mental regulations and to cooper-
ate fully with the appropriate gov-
ernment agencies. The proposed
maintenance dredging will depos-
it all dredged material on land
with no return flow to the bay.
This is the first step that will
improve Bay access now towards
the hoped for eventual permitting
and construction of a top quality,
sensitively designed marina facili-
ty that will provide much better
access to the great recreational
resources of St. Joseph's Bay and
the Gulf of Mexico. If the marina
is constructed it will create many
much needed new jobs and sub-
stantially expand the tax base of
Gulf County.
You may recall an article that
appeared in the January 7, 1988
edition of The Star concerning
the proposed marina. A copy of
that article along with a petition
was circulated at that tithe
throughout Gulf County seeking
yourr support and comments. Sev-
eral hundred of you signed that
petition and expressed support of
the proposed marina with only
two people expressing any opposi-
tion.
I have always had terrific sup-
port of the Gulf County and Port
St. Joe community and I too love
the scalloping and fishing in the
Bay. I would appreciate your sup-
port again now for this proposed
maintenance dredging. This
dredging can and will be done in
an environmentally sensitive
manner. I would appreciate it if
you would again express your
support prior to February 8, 1989
to:
Department of the Army
Jacksonville4 District Corps of
Engineers
Regulatory Division, North
Permits Branch
Post Office Box 4970
Jacksonville, Florida 32232-
00,19
Mark to the attention of:
Katherine Brooks
Cite case number 881PL-
21160.
Thank you very much for
your support, working together
we can improve the recreational
opportunities in Gulf County and
it can be done in an environmen-
tally sensitive and cooperative
manner. Thanks again.
Sincerely,
Langdon S. Flowers, Jr.

Letter Writer Asks Questions


Dear Editor,
Over the past few months
several letters have addressed the
issue of a proposed marina locat-
ed at Tapper's Cut. The most re-
cent have been against the mari-
na and I must admit that not
many have been for. The only
sure fact that I have been able to
determine is that all comments
must be written to the Army
Corps of Engineers by February
8. 1989. Although this marina
controversy has been brewing for
more than a few months, it ap-
pears to me that neither side has
been rushing in to supply us with
the facts.
What is the long-term aim of
Flowers Investments Inc.? Will
this "simple" maintenance dredg-
ing eventually turn the Cape into
another Panama City Beach? Or
will the marina and the develop-
ment be done properly, to protect
the many factors that contribute
to make St. Joseph's Bay the
cleanest, most natural estuary
left in the Gulf of Mexico.
There are quite a few other
options that must be expressed
before we can decide what is best
for Gulf County. The Department
of Natural Resources, Depart-
ment of Environmental Regula-
tion,. Florida Game and Freshwa-
ter Fish Commission, Army
Corps of Engineers and the Envi-
ronmental Protection Agency, all
of which are funded by our taxes,
have not given us the benefit of a
neutral accounting of the facts.
Also, let's give the developers the
chance to show they intend to
safeguard the environment at
each step, and create jobs and
services that would be beneficial
to the entire community and pro-
duce a future that will enhance


all of our lives.
As we have recently learned
from the controversy and expense
of Gulf County's solid waste dis-
posal problem, environmental de-
cisions are far more expensive if
not approached honestly and cor-
rectly from the beginning. We
need to revisit several related
problems such as: 'Do we need a
city sewer line run to the State
Park?', 'What should the popula-
tion density per acre be and what
should be done with the thirty
million gallons of questionably
treated sewage the city presently
dumps into the bay?'
I believe the City and County
Commissioners in representing'
all the people should request that
all parties involved produce hard
facts on a timely and relevant ba-
sis so that we can understand the
overall impact to our already
stressed ecosystem.
It is only fair to both sides
that the people are given more
time and information so that they
may make ,an educated decision
on the most important issue to
everyone, the quality of life for
now and the future.
Sincerely,
Captain Bill Koran

Appreciates

Support of Bay
Dear Editor:
In your January 19 Edition I
was indeed grateful for the two
letters written by Herman Jones
and Anne Rudloe. I wholehearted-
ly agree that the bay must be pro-
tected from further development
by people such as Mr. Flowers.
However for the past three years
there has been people who have
begged the people of St. Joe and
surrounding areas to please not
drive on Cape San Blas beaches.
But the St. Joe City Council
simply raised the permit fee a fev
dollars, and that was the end of
it. Now is the time for people not
only to preserve the St. Joe Bay
but also to keep trucks and cars
off our Cape San Bias Beach.
Let's work together to not-
only protect our bay but also our
beach for our children and their
children.
Sincerely,
Don Hudgins


Says, King James THE BIBLE


Dear Editor:
Who wrote the King James
.Bible? The answer would-be. that
God did. The Holy Spirit moved
upon the hearts of men that they
recorded the very words that God
wanted written in the Holy Bible.
If the Bible had not been written
by God, then it would just be an-
other book. II Peter 1:21.
Now what about all these oth-
er so-called Bible versions that
are out on the market today like
the A.S.V., N.I.V., and the Living
Bible, are these God's word? The
answer would be no. Of the 100
so-called versions of the Bible
that is in existence today, all
come from different manuscripts
that that of the King James Bible.
The King James or Authorized
bible used the Received Text as
the foundation for their work.
But the other 100 versions of the
Bible come from other manu-
scripts. Such manuscripts as the
Vaticanus which was found in
the Pope's library in 1481. Then
there is the Sinaiticus manu-
script which was found by a man
named Tischer Dorf in a waste
basket in St. Catherine's Monas-
tery in 1844. These so-called
manuscripts were introduced in
1881 by two Greek scholars
named Brpoke Foss Westcott
D.D. and Fenton John Anthony
Hort D.D., who were theleading
men on a committee to revise the
Bible. The manuscripts that
Westcott and Hort worked on de-
viated from the Received Text in
more than 36 thousand places.
So these so-called revised ver-
sions of the Bible today are cor-
rupt with a mixture of truth and
error. All 100 revised versions ei-
ther 'Take" or "Add" from God's
Holy word. This is forbidden in
Rev. 22:18, 19. Also 90% of the
revised versions have removed
the "Trinity"' I John 5:7. In the
A.S.V., which is based on the
Alexandria manuscripts, the
name "Christ" is omitted 16
times, and the name "Lord" is
omitted 12 times. Then there is
the "Living Bible" which is a para-
phrase. But in Isaiah 55:8-13,
paraphrasing is forbidden. The
author of the Living Bible is a
mtan named Ken Taylor who in
the Living Bible is trying to ex-
press the thoughts of God. A par-
aphrase of the Holy scripture is
* man writing down his own
thoughts and then attributing his
thoughts to that of God's. Then
there is the "Good News For Mod-
ern Man" (T.E.V.), which attacks
the doctrine of redemption
through the "Blood" of Jesus
Christ, in such verses as: Ephe-
sians 1:7; Hebrews 10:19; I Peter
1:19; etc. Then there is the so-
called N.I.V. version which is In-
terclominational, where the word
"Christ" is omitted nine times,
like verses such as Acts 16:31;
Acts 15:11; etc. Also in II Cor.


11:31, the name of deity "Christ"
is gone also. -
Space is not provided to go
into every scripture that is omit-
ted or changed in these revised
versions. But I give a warning to
all those who use the so-called re-
vised versions that they should
read of what happened to a man
named "Jehoiakim" and what
happened to him after he mutilat-
ed God's word. (Jeremiah 36).
Another thing I would like to
mention, is that most of the 100
revised versions of the Bible have
an All Rights Reserved in the
front indicating to everyone that
they have all rights to the scrip-
ture in that version. So in order
for you to let's say, quote from
the N.I.V., in an article, then you
would need the publisher and au-
thor's permission. They claim to
have all rights to God's word, and
they will take you to court if you
use their revised version without
their permission. Now isn't "that
interesting that you have to get
permission to use God's word. In
the King James Bible, we have
God's permission to use his word
to spread the gospel as we see fit,
but to use the revised version you
need the publisher's permission if
you want to quote from it in an
article. Why? Because God is not
the author of them, Man is.
So if God is the author of the
King James Bible, then who is
the author of the other 100 re-
vised versions of the Bible? The
answer would be Humanistic Bib-
lical Scholars. That is to say men
who think God's word is not infal-
lible, so they have "Added" to
God's word, what they think God
meant to have said, and 'Take"
from God's word, what they think
God did not mean to say. So who
are you going to believe, God's
word or Man's word? The falling
away from God's word is alive
and well today and no denomina-
tion either liberal or conservative
is immune from this kind of pol-
lution. All have been infiltrated in
some way. That would include
many Bible colleges also. You see
today we have instant tea, instant
coffee, and now man wants an in-
stant Bible to have and read. If
God had intended for the Bible to
have been written any other way,
it would have been done so from
the beginning. When the Puritans
translated the Bible for King
James, you can be sure God was
there to guide them in its transla-
tion from Hebrew and Greek into
English, and it took 11 years to
do this. The enemies of God's
word would have you think that
God was on vacation during the
11 years it took the Puritans to
translate the Bible. But God guid-
ed them, just as he guided Paul
and others to write down what he
wanted them to.
So don't be surprised if you
are opposed for taking a stand for


God's true word. Remember mil-
lions have died for God's word,
and many burned at the stake by
the Church of England just for
having a copy of the Bible in their
home or possession. The attack
may come from your pastor,
church, or denomination. I have
met many pastors who use flat-
tery or confusing Biblical termi-
nology to turn many from God's
true word. Other people are led
away because they will believe
anything their pastor tells them.
You see God did not leave us in
the hands of men, because men
are not infallible, but God's word
is infallible. Another thing to re-
member is that there are two evils
behind these so-called revised
Bibles, on is money. Billions have
been made off their sales and the
publishers are pushing hard to
have them sold. To the publishers
it doesn't matter if the revised
version is God's word, all they
want is the almighty dollar that
they get from the sales. The sec-
ond is to weaken one's faith in
God's true word. In other words,
to make people "doubt". So be
prepared to be attacked especial-
ly by those who want to bring all
faiths together under a "One
World Church" like the "Interden-
ominalists". They are hard at
work and can be found every
where. But this one world church
is called in the Bible "Babylon,
The Mother of Harlots", which at
God's will the beast shall destroy
this phoney church in the middle
of the tribulation (Rev. 17,18). So
you can stay with God's true
word or read a corrupt revised
version of the Bible where the
manuscripts are not inspired by
the Holy Spirit. If you want to un-
derstand the King James Bible
then rely on the Holy Spirit. The
Holy Spirit will guide you in all
truth. (John 16:13).

The workshop, to be held at
Rollins College on February 20 to
22, is being sponsored by the du-
Pont scholarship program, which
has adopted Gulf county as its
pilot county for a program to aid
any student who wishes to go to
college, to go.
The workshop is a part of
that program, in which the many
sources of obtaining college
funds, whether by grant or loan,
will be explored and revealed to
those in attendance. The duPont
program has such a program as
its goal for providing college fi-
nancing.
The new duPont program be-
ing tested in Gulf county would
help a college prospect explore
every avenue of tuition assis-
tance, including what the family
is able to bear, then supplement
the total with duPont or local
grants.
The representatives at the
workshop includes six Gulf
county Instructors and guidance
department personnel.
Attending from the Port St.
Joe High School faculty will be
guidance counsellor Sarah Riley
and teachers, Cindy Belin and
Lawana Patterson.
Members of the Wewahitchka
faculty attending the workshop
will be guidance counsellor Bruce
Breegie and teachers Tom Collins
and Betty Holloway.
The workshop will result in
both county high schools having
people on their staffs who are
equipped to properly direct stu-
dents in obtaining funding need-
ed to attend college. The purpose
of the duPont program is to pro-
vide assurance to students as
early as the elementary school
grades there is a way provided to
finance their college education.
The faculty attending the
workshop later this month will be
versed in what these methods
might be, and be capable of di-
recting the student in the proper
direction.

Colbert Wins Geography Bee


Josh Colbert, a seventh grade
student at Port St. Joe High
School, won the school's geogra-
phy Bee on January 26 and a
chance at a $25,000 college
scholarship. The school-level Bee,
where students answered oral
questions on geography, was the
first round in the new National
Geography Bee that is being
sponsored by National Geograph-
ic WORLD, the Society's maga-
zine for children.
The following students were
the top 10 finalists in the prelimi-
nary round of the National Geog-
raphy Bee held on January 25.
They were:
1. Bryan Butts, 7th grade
2. Josh Colbert, 7th grade
3. Megan Dean, 7th grade
4. Tim Hatcher, 7th grade
5. Stephanie Norris, 7th grade
6. James Sasser, 7th grade
7. Tanya Sasser, 8th grade
8. Joseph Shagena, 8th grade
9. Kim Thomas, 8th grade
10. John Young, 8th grade.
First place winner Josh Col-
bert
Second place winner Joseph
Shagena.
The Bee was kicked off the
week of January 9 in thousands
of schools around the United
States and in four territories. The
school winners, including Josh,
will now take a written test; up to
100 of the top scorers in each
state will be eligible to compete in
their state Bee April 7.
The National Geographic So-
ciety will fly all first-place winners
from the state Bees, along with
their teacher escorts, to Washing-
ton, D.C., to participate in the
National Geography Bee finals on
May 18 and 19. The first-place
national winner will receive a
$25,000 college scholarship; the
second place winner, a $15,000
scholarship; and the third place
winner, a $10,000 scholarship.
The Bee featured questions
on the broad subject of geogra-
phy-the study of the earth and its
inhabitants. All of the questions
could be answered with a word or
a simple phrase.


The National Geographic So-
ciety developed the National Ge-
ography Bee in response to a
growing concern about the lack of
geographic knowledge among
young people in the United
States. A nine-country Gallup
Survey conducted for the Society
last May found that people in the
U.S. ages 18 to 24, the youngest
group surveyed, knew less about
geography than young people in
any of the other countries.
The National Geographic So-
ciety, which celebrated its centen-
nial in 1988, has nearly 11 mil-
lion members. Its mission is the
"increase and diffusion of geo-
graphic knowledge". Besides the
National Geographic Bee, the So-
ciety is working on a number of
other geography education initia-
tives, including the Summer Ge-
ography Institute for teachers,
the National Geographic Society
Education Foundation, and the
Geographic Alliance Network,

PORT ST. JOE, FL THURSDAY, FEB. 2, 1989


Henderson and Ray Commit to Louisville


OPEN YOUR MOUTH!

Not too very long ago this command by a dentist was
more than enough to strike fear in just about everybody.
It was a prelude to pain and a person would rather do
almost anything else than keep a dental appointment.
How far we have come in a few short years. Today,
very rarely is there any pain involved in dental work
and your dentist mostly is concentrating on prevention
of problems rather than treatment. New techniques
and equipment have made a visit to the dentist a
pleasant experience. And the wide variety of dental
aids we stock can make your job easier between visits.
"A GREAT MANY PEOPLE ENTRUST US with their
prescriptions, health needs and other pharmacy products.
We consider this trust a privilege and a duty. May we be
your personal family pharmacy?"

G.U. Parker Area in February


Archery and muzzleloading
gun hunters who plan to hunt
G.U. Parker Wildlife Management
Area in February will be restrict-
ed to bucks-only hunting.
That word comes after mod-
ern gun hunters filled the Game
and Fresh Water Fish Commis-
sion's quota of 50 antlerless deer
on the popular area during the
general gun season.
"In most years modern gun
hunters do not fill the quota but
this season they did," said Wild-
life Biologist Steve Shea. 'To al-
low any more antlerless harvest
would affect reproduction and re-


cruitment into the deer herd."

The Wewahitchka Little Major
League Association will be hold-
ing registration for children ages
8 to 12 years on Tuesday, Febru-
ary 7 from 5-7 p.m. The registra-
tion fee is $10.00 per family. All
children must present a birth
certificate when they register so
that the association can have it
on fle for the upcoming season.
All interested children are en-
couraged to attend.


Two Port St. Joe gridders
have committed themselves to
play football for the University of
Louisville, after spending the
weekend on the Kentucky cam-
pus of the school.
Ivey Henderson and Leonard
Ray, both defensive standouts
for the Sharks for the past few
seasons, were recruited by
Coach Howard Schnellenberger,
who paid a visit to Port St. Joe
two weeks ago, expressing an
interest in the two defensive
linemen becoming a part of his
team.


Both Henderson and Ray
visited the Louisville campus
over the week end, liked what
they saw and heard and com-
mited themselves to signing a
grant in aid with the school. The
contract will be signed Wednes-
day morning of next week.
Henderson, at 6-2 and 225
pounds, was one of the leading
tacklers in the Big Bend last
football season. Henderson had
37 tackles, 47 assists and six
quarterback sacks from his de-
fensive tackle position.
Ray, a 6-3, 270 pound gen-


tie giant, had 20 tackles, 19 as-
sists and three sacks, as a de-
fensive tackle.
Both young men are credit-
ed by their coach, Phil Lanford,
with being hard workers in
game preparation and execu-
tion. They both are good stu-
dents and have the SAT scores
to make them eligible for college
work.
Both the young athletes ex-
pressed themselves after their
visit to Louisville as being very
pleased with the campus, its fa-
cilities, and the personal inter-


est Coach Schnellenberger
showed in them.
Both the signees had been
recruited by universities other
than Louisville. Ray was sought
after by Kentucky, Ole Miss and
Central Florida. Henderson had
interested Kentucky, Central
Florida and Samford.
Coach Lanford said at the
beginning of the season the two
young men had the size and
ability to be college material. Af-
ter the agreements reached
Monday, he said, "They're happy
and I'm happy for them."

January 3. The Dolphins bombed
the Sharks Tuesday, 92-74.
Mosley jumped off to an eight
point lead in the first period and
never looked back and the
Sharks could never catch them.

games for the Sharks this year.
The Sharks had onlytwo men
scoring in double figures. Willie
Smith led the team with 23
points and Eric Langston scored

RED ALERT!!!




ST. JOSEPH BAY


Q(,j


9 "S,


St. Joseph Bay in Gulf County is the proposed
site of a major commercial marina that will be
dredged directly on top of the turtles grass beds in
the bayt This turtle grass is home to many species
of marine life such as scallops, crabs, shrimp, etc.
This project could be a forerunner to the develop-
ment of other marinas along the barrier spit.
Project approval would release 30,000 cubic
yards of dredging that will chronically flush heavy
metals and oil pollution from the marina basin site
to our precious seagrass beds. A counter-clockwise
current is established in the central portion of the
lagoon. Current movement is the same throughout
the bay except in the shallow southern end where
there is hardly any movement. This means that al-
though the effluents from the Paper Mill in Port St.
Joe are carried out to sea rather than into the bay
by counter-clockwise circulation; the currents of the
spit side (including the proposed dredge site) will
be carried directly into the poorly flushed grass ba-
sin and accumulate there.
Destruction of grass beds by dredging and ma-
rine construction has been repeatedly documented
in scientific literature as being detrimental to ma-
rine life which we are most anxious to preserve for


future generations. The Florida Department of Nat-
ural Resources reports that dredging has caused
the loss of marine life of 81% in Tampa, 29% in
Charlotte Harbor, 38% at Sebastian Inlet, 25% at
Fort Pierce, and 100% at Ponce Inlet. (FL DNR,
1987).
This process of destruction of marine life can al-
ready be seen in an advanced state in the grass
beds of Alligator Harbor in Franklin County. This
is a smaller basin but geologically and hydrological-
ly almost identical to St. Joe's basin. It is logical to
draw the conclusion that the same type of destruc-
tion that has occurred in Alligator Harbor would be
done to St. Joe Bay if a marina permit were grant-
ed. Approval of this permit and construction of the
marina will result in automatic closure of shellfish
harvesting areas under state policy.
Over the years we have enjoyed many activities
that are unique to our bay, let's preserve this treas-
ure for our children to enjoy. It is our responsibility
to our progeny to do so.

If you agree that we do not need a marina to ad-
versely affect our bay please cut out and sign the
letter and mail it to the address given.

Tree Dieback


Trees Have A Limit to Life and Limb

Just As Humans.. They Die Eventually


By Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Director

Dieback is a process of de-
cline which causes trees,to give
up a portion of their leaves. It
usually occurs as a result of some
severe stress to the- tree's root
system, There's a-:delicate bal-
ance between a tree's root and the
number pf leaves t ican support.
If a tree loes part of its root sys-
tem, it must also,give p some of
its leaves. However, this process
doesn't happen overnight-. "
Visible dieback of a tree takes
time often quite a long time from
the date the root system :was in-
jured. The larger the tree;, the long
it takes for this stress, sign ,to
show up. So, with" older trees, it
could easily be a year of more be-
fore diebackis observed. Also, the
larger thfe tree is. the less distur-
bance it. ca tolerate to its root
system.. .
/A1'mil' iree,~jUl adopt to al-
Smostfy : growing "condition that
it ha 4to On. the. other hand, a ma-
ture t.ieois "'et in its ways" as the
saying,goes, ,and can't respond fa-
vorably to changes ih;lts environ-
ment. So, what can be done to'
prevent dieback in old trees? '
Probably the first thing we
need to realhze'Is that trees, like
.all living;.things, have a ,natural
life expectancy. Sometinies. no

Bill Crawford, District Gov-
ernor's representative for District
694, showed a video tape on Ro-
tary history to the Port St. Joe
club Thursday at their regular
luncheon meeting.
The video revealed some facts
about, the early days of Rotary In-
ternational, even veteran mem-
bers didn't know about.
Rotary was founded in Chica-
go, Illinois in 1905 by Paul Harris,
an attorney who had moved to
Chicago from a small town. Long-

business community experienced
in small towns, Harris got in
touch with several small business
operators near his office and they
formed a luncheon club for the
sole purpose of socializing to-

'There were four men at that
first meeting, which made a habit
of rotating its meeting place, thus
earning the club's name.
It wasn't long before the
club's concept started to catch on
in other large cities, where small
town men had gathered to make a
living. In 1910, the first Rotary
convention was held in Chicago,
with 16 clubs represented.
In 1910, the first club outside
the United States was esta-

in Winnepeg, Canada. Today,
clubs can be found in 160 coun-
tries around the world, all with
the same purpose and the re-
quirements for membership.
