Proposed Boat


Channel In Bay


Draws Fire
With a February 11 deadline staring dissenters in the face for
opposing a proposed channel dredging on St. Joseph Peninsula,
the Apalachee Planing Council, Thursday, postponed their deci-
sion on whether or not to endorse the proposal for 30 days until
public hearings could be held on the matter.
About 75 people gathered in the Gulf County Court room
Thursday morning of last week to "talk" about the matter, with
those opposed out-numbering the proponents, if input into the
discussion was any criteria.
Langdon Flowers, a Thomasville, Georgia developer and mem-
ber of the Flowers Baking Company family, is asking for a permit
to re-open a dredged channel on the Bay side of St. Joseph Penin-
sula at the place known locally as 'Tapper's Hole". The channel
was opened in the 1960's to allow barges carrying paving materi-
als to approach the shore with materials for paving the road to St.
Joseph Peninsula State Park. The channel has since silted in and
Flowers has purchased the property. He wants to re-open the
channel to a width of 100 feet and a depth of five feet to allow out-
board pleasure boats entrance to the bay.
ENVIRONMENTALISTS OPPOSE
The main argument against the proposal Thursday, was made
by Ann Rudloe, a marine biologist from Wakulla county who
charged that Flowers really wants to build a marina, which she
said would destroy the bay by killing off its delicate ecosystem of
marine life with petroleum pollution from boats.
Rudloe was joined by several local people who expressed a de-


i V l mwi ,.- .- a & M iAPi
Developer Langdon Flowers, wearing tie and jacket, listens
to reactions to his request for a permit to re-open a boat
channel on St. Joseph Peninsula.
sire to leave the bay alone as it is. The only technical data re-
vealed was by Rudloe who said the currents circulate into the bay
along the peninsula to the head of the bay, then follow the main-
land shoreline around the head of the bay, then back toward the
mouth along the mainland. She contended this current circula-
tion pattern would cause serious pollution problems.
Bill Quarles and Jim Cox both spoke to their desires to deny
the permit because they wanted the bay preserved. Cox said there
was already a boat. landing a little over a mile from the proposed
channel, inside the state park. Both men felt fewer landings would
discourage an influx of boaters to the bay.
"NOT SO," SAYS NEWMAN
Local contractor George Newman rebutted the positions of Cox
and Quarles saying, 'Traffic in the bay is going to double in just a
couple of years. The question is whether you want a safe launch
site or do you want boaters to get their boats in the water Just any
way they can, tearing up sensitive aquatic life like they are now
doing?" Newman said people are "actually carrying boats to the
water on their shoulders. They're going to get there some way or
another."
Ross McWilliams, a marine biologist representing Flowers
pointed out there is a channel on the site now. He said 'We do not
have plans for a marina, nor are we asking for a permit for one.
We would like to see a marina someday, but first we must ask if
we can afford it before it is even considered."
McWilliams cited several other bays which were "coming back"
with sensitive handling by developers, citing Tampa Bay as the
best known example. He also said state grass beds were rejuve-
nating themselves now that their fragility has been recognized
and care taken to protect them by people using the waterways.
Flowers didn't say anything at the hearing, but responded to
questions after adjournment by saying he wanted to protect the
bay and whatever he. did would be undertaken with this in mind.
He cited developments in the area he is already involved in which
have not damaged the environment.
Flowers said many people already living on the Peninsula
would like a place to put their boats in the water and. a place to
secure them when not in use to protect them from the weather.
He said he had no plans for a marina. He just wanted to provide
the boat channel access to the bay. If demand exists for a marina
in the future we might consider it, "if enough people want it and
we can afford it," he said. He stressed, "The permit we are seeking
is just to dredge out the channel. If we wanted to go further, we
would have to have more permits."
CORPS OF ENGINEERS HEARING
The Corps of Engineers in Jacksonville will be the agency to
consider the permit. The corps is taking public input to the pro-
ject through February 11 [Saturday], receiving input from those
who approve or object to the dredging.
A Corps spokesman has stated the permit will not be denied
simply on the basis of public opinion. Objective environmental
considerations will also be reviewed.
I The deadline for receiving input may be extended, with the de-
lay by the APC in giving their endorsement or denial to the permit.
The APC approved a motion by member Gene McClellan of
Blountstown to table the matter for 30 days until a public hearing
could be scheduled prior to the decision by the. Corps of Engi-
neers.
The Gulf County Commission has also asked for such a hear-
ing to be conducted by the Corps of Engineers.
Such a hearing had not been scheduled by press time
Wednesday afternoon.


Local Schools Getting S


Florida Education Commissioner Betty
Castor has released her recommendation of
$209,000 for Gulf county as part of the list of
$491.2 million worth of school construction
projects in her 1989-90 capital outlay budget.
The list contains projects for community
colleges and universities, as well as the dollars
that will go directly to public school districts.
Local school boards will then decide the priori-
ty list for using the money.
'These dollars will fund top priority pro-
jects for Gulf county," Castor said. "We must
continue building to keep up with our tremen-
dous growth."
The sum of $98,236 has been earmarked
for new construction in Gulf county. Superin-
tendent of Schools Walter Wilder stressed that
the money would be used to complete the We-
wahitchka Elementary School. Wilder stated
however, the money would not be used at this
time until the state-mandated asbestos remov-


al requirements have been received and the
county's situation examined for compliance.
FALLS SHORT OF NEED
While the list will help alleviate reliance on
portables in some schools, Castor said it still
falls far short of the long-range need for facili-
ties. Over the next five years, the projected in-
come for construction is $2 billion short of the
need, or $400 million a year. 'We must find a
stable, long-range solution to our capital out-
lay needs," Castor said. She announced the
formation of a task force to recommend solu-
tions to the Legislature.
The Florida Legislature will make final de-
cisions during the 1989 session. Castor's rec-
ommendations are based on the projected in-.
come for the Public Education Capital Outlay
(PECO) program, which receives its money
from the gross receipts tax on utilities, and a
$255.2 million request from the Infrastructure
Trust Fund. The program includes mainte-


tate Money
nance, new construction and continuation of
projects approved by the 1988 Legislature.
Also included are construction of special
facilities for community education and pre-
school for the handicapped, a needs assess-
ment study for K- 12 science facilities and joint-
use projects in the panhandle and central Flor-
ida regions. The funding request also covers
construction of improved public broadcasting
studios in Pensacola and Orlando.
SUPPLEMENTS LOCAL EFFORT
The 1989-90 PECO program is designed to
supplement local efforts to fund public schools
and is the major source of construction fund-
ing for community colleges and universities.
Castor's plan includes the renovation or re-
placement of Florida's oldest school buildings.
"More than 5% of our existing classrooms are
over 50 years old. .a- problem that will only
get worse if we do nothing now," she said.


Spac report for Gulf?


McDonald Reveals Commercial Facility Being Considered


Gulf County-more particu-
larly the Peninsula area-is in a
good position to be selected to get
into the commercial space pro-
gram, Chamber of Commerce re-
tiring president, Mike McDonald
.told those at the annual meeting
of the Chamber Monday night.
McDonald said Gulf County
is in the forefront of becoming the
Gulf of Mexico launch site for
commercial space activities. A
definite decision on where the
spaceport will be located is to be
announced by state officials in
Tallahassee on Wednesday of
next week.
Before anyone became too
elated over the announcement,
McDonald pointed out the pro-.
gram would be very small to be-
gn with, but had definite possi-
Sl Utis for growth. "Nobody will
probably realize anything is going
on unless they are in the act of
shooting off a rocket," the Cham-
ber president said.
In explaining the spaceport
operations, McDonald said the fa-
cility will be used to launch space
probes by industry or educational
facilities. The probes. will be to
gather data for commercial pur-
poses and will not be involved
with the government space pro-
gram. He said Gulf county is
strongly in the picture because of
its unique location. 'They want a
location where they can shoot the
rockets off over the water and
have them fall in water when
they are spent. Gulf county is
one of a very few locations which
meet this criteria," he pointed
out.
'We have been assured mon-
ey will be made available to pro-
vide services-such as roads-to
the site, wherever it goes," McDo-
nald told the audience.
In other activities reports, the
retiring president said the Cham-
ber had just had 10,000 new ad-
vertising pieces printed to serve
Gulf county's needs and the
Chamber was preparing to com-
pile a new business directory for
distribution purposes.
OFFICERS INSTALLED
New directors, Linda Borde-
lon, Greg Johnson, Al Scheffer
and Steve Richardson were in-
stalled to new terms on the Board
by Clerk of the Circuit Court


Benny Lister.
The method of selecting new
officers was changed this year.
The new Board of Directors will
elect a president from their num-
ber at their first meeting of the
year. Other officers will be ap-
pointed at the election.
CITIZEN OF THE YEAR
McDonald announced the se-
lection of a Citizen of the Year at
Monday night's meeting.
Selected for the honor was
City Commissioner Emily Roche,
who has spent much of the past
year on a personal campaign to
direct clean up of city streets,
empty lots, etc. The Commission-
er has personally directed-a crew
of workers In the clean up activi-
ties which has had far-reaching
results throughout the communP
ty. -
Roche was presented with a
plaque of appreciation from the
Chamber and a bouquet of roses
from the Beautification Commit-
tee chairman, Rev. Ennis Sellers.
Roche is also a member of the
committee.
THOMAS SPEAKS
Guest speaker at the annual
meeting, which was attended by
about 140 people, was Tommy
Thomas, a well-known area auto-
mobile dealer in Panama City.
Thomas, a nationally ranking
member of the Republican party,
is a strong supporter of personal
effort in improving one's position
in life.
Thomas said, 'You don't have
to leave home to find opportunity.
It's right here if you look for it
and make it happen!"
Thomas stressed the need for
"telling our kids where we come
from and how we got here."
The speaker was introduced
as a self-made man by president
McDonald. "Here is a former yan-
kee, who came to Alabama as a
declared Republican, selling au-
tomobiles to Red Necks." Thomas
added another hurdle to those
two, quipping, "Make that a yan-
kee Republican who was trying to
sell Edsels to those Red Necks!"
The members and guests at-
tending the annual dinner meet-
ing dined on a steak dinner pre-
pared by the Port St. Joe Lions
Club.

as "Citizen of the Year" for clean-up activities.

Cable TV Firm Asks for City Franchise


Representatives of a second
cable TV firm approached the
City Commission Tuesday night,
asking for a franchise to operate
in the city of Port St. Joe.
Panama City attorney Carol
McCauley, representing Integrat-
ed Communications Corporation
of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania,
said the firm, known as ITC Ca-
blevision, Inc., made the pitch for
the franchise, saying the firm
was anxious to install a second
cable TV outlet in Port St. Joe.
McCauley said ITC operates
50 cable TV firms in the U.S. and
is one of three firms presently
serving in Marianna.
The attorney said, 'The direc-
tors of this firm feel two cable TV
firms can operate in Port St. Joe
and its surrounding area."
Clay Harris, manager of the
Marianna office, said their rates
had been stable in Marianna for
the past two and a half years and
are not likely to increase in the
near future.
McCauley said the firm would

agree to pay the City a three per-
cent franchise fee for the privilege
of operating here. A list of propo-
sals he presented to the Commis-
sion said the firm could begin
construction within 120 days af-
ter a franchise is approved.
The proposal said the firm
would offer 23 active channels,
three of which would be premi-
um, or extra pay channels.
The proposed system would
have a capability of 46 channels.
McCauley said the firm had
tried to purchase Gulf Cable TV,
which already operates inside the
city, but the negotiations had
"fallen through."
GULF CABLE WANTS INPUT
Attorney Bob Moore, repre-


senting Gulf Cable TV, was
present at the meeting, Tuesday,
asking that his client be kept up
to date on negotiations with ITC.
'We would like to be given an
opportunity to respond to any
proposals made to the Commis-
sion," Moore said.
Mayor Frank Pate advised
McCauley that before the Com-
mission could or would make a
decision in the matter, they
would require a financial state-
ment from ITC and would want to
know if they were bondable to
cover any failure to meet their ob-
ligations.
The Commission told McCau-
ley they would take his request
up for consideration again at


their next meeting on February
21.
BEAUTIFICATION REPORT
Rev. Ennis Sellers, chairman
of the city's beautification com-
mittee gave a report of improv-
ments from its first year of opera-
tion.
Sellers reported the campaign
had met with huge success dur-
ing the year and thanked the
Commission for their encourage-
ment and support.
The chairman urged the
Commission to continue their ef-
forts in maintaining a clean com-
munity and made several sugges-
tions.
AWARDS GIVEN
Mayor Pate made several
award presentations during the
meeting, to express the City's ap-
preciation for volunteer service
during the year.
Mrs. Charles Clardy and Mrs.
Charles Browne were presented
with plaques of appreciation for

Choice


Quit if the Pay is Too Low

Speaker of the House, Jim Wright of Texas said the other
day, 'The pay raise [for Congress] and its provisions to forbid
speaking honorariums from lobbyists would have the Congress
working for just one boss, the people".
Congressman Wright intimated the current practice of pay-
ing for speaking engagements and putting the politician up in
palatial digs while they are "on location" has them obligated to
the lobby groups rather than the people. The supposition has
gone so far as to suggest they are more indebted to the lobby-
ists than they are to those who voted for them so they could be
available for those considerable perks which come by the way
of a Congressman's desk and which are entirely legal for him to
accept.
The Speaker of the House may be correct in his reasoning,
but he is wrong about who the Congressman should be repre-
senting; even if he isn't given a penny of public money. The
public put him in office to represent them; not himself! Until
another person is elected, the present, seated Congressman
represents the people in his particular district, not a lobbyist or
pressure group.
If there is a host of Congressmen in Washington, D.C., who
feel as Congressman Wright does, then we as a people should
revolt from having to pay the salaries we already pay. A raise in
pay should be unthinkable under this reasoning.
Congressman Wright is saying, in effect, "You have elected
these men to represent you. Now you must buy their loyalty
with more money, or they will represent someone else." There is
no thought given to the Congressman refusing to run again be-
cause the pay isn't good enough for him to make a living while
he is about doing the business of the people.
We could all understand that and would be glad to give a
raise of 50%, 75%, or whatever was necessary. But for a Con-
gressman to hold his loyalty at ransom is unthinkable.
The situation reminds us of the old movie entitled "Jesse
James". In the movie the editor of Jesse James' hometown
newspaper defends James robbing trains because the railroad
barons cheated some of the local citizens out of their land when
the rails were laid. His favorite line, when writing editorials
about those who were responsible for stealing the land was,
'We ought to take 'em all out and shoot 'em down like dogs!"
We don't advocate shooting the Congressmen down like
dogs who are holding their loyalty up for sale to the people or to
the lobbyists, but we can turn them out of office if they don't
wish to continue representing their constituents and take care
of their financial condition, once and for all!



We'll Handle It
It was an emotional time at the Courthouse last Thursday
morning, as a committee of the Apalachee Planning Council
considered a request from Langdon Flowers of Flowers Indus-
tries, to clean out a boat landing channel on the Peninsula.
Considering the emotion involved in the prieliminary hear'-,
ing, we can only imagine what -it will be'khet'the'l6ie comes (o
actually shell corn on the mattef:'What will the mood "of the
crowd be when it comes to making the hard choice as to wheth-
er or not to allow the channel maintenance?
We're glad our people are interested in the matter, whatever
the outcome. We hate to see anything which affects us, hap-
pen through forfeit.
We also hate to hear committee members on a commission
so powerful in influence as the APC make statements like,
"Gulf county doesn't have any more input into this thing than
other counties in the area."
We disagree vehemently. We don't mind the other counties
being interested and even speaking up on occasion, but don't
make statements like that in public meetings! The bay is in
Gulf county and is the responsibility of Gulf county and its peo-
ple. If we want to use it solely for recreation, that's our busi-
ness. If we want to keep it wrapped in saran wrap until the end
of time, that's our business. If we want to try and strike a hap-
py medium between the forces of conservatism and those of
other uses, that's our business.
We feel that if people come over here and get involved in our
decisions, they should ask our permission first. We realize
most of the out-of-county testimony went like the majority of
the audience, Thursday, wanted it to go, but the situation
could very well have been reversed.

Dalkeith Dan Saw His Shadow, Too! More 'Winter'


DID YOU SEE THE Ground-
hog's shadow last Thursday? The
groundhog did and vowed and
declared we were going to have at
least six more weeks of winter.
, Horrors!
If we have six more weeks of
the kind of winter we have been
having, I don't see how we'll be
able to stand it. Temperatures
fluctuating between the 60's and
80's here in January is Just
about more than we can bear up
under.
The above paragraph was
written for those who subscribe
for this wonderful newspaper,
but live up in the clime where the
scenery is white and the tempera-
tures are off the thermometer. .
the wrong way.
Punxatawney Phil came out
on schedule last Thursday, I un-


derstand, and took a look about
the neighborhood. Our own ver-
sion of Punxatawney Phil, Dal-
keith Dan, the Willis Swamp
weather raccoon, couldn't help
but see his shadow last Thurs-
day. That is, he saw it if he had
come back from the beach and
put up his surfboard before sup-
per time before looking for his
shadow.
Some places use a wood-
chuck for their groundhog. I read
the other day where the Alabama
state, woodchuck saw his shad-
ow, too, and ducked back in his
hole for six more weeks.
' AN ARTICLE IN THE news-
papers the other day tried to
pooh-pooh the whole idea of the
groundhog checking the weather
before he woke up from his nap
for good after his winter of hiber-
nation.
The article I read said the


groundhog was actually waking
up from his long hibernation with
the urge to mate and was really.
looking for a pretty little female
groundhog when he peeked out
of his burrow, rather than check-
ing for shadows.
This may be true and it may
not be true. And, then it may just
be a figment of someone's imagi-
. nation. Actually, it seems to me
to have more of a modern flavor
than seeing shadows does. We
make every decision we make to-
day in the light of how it will af-
fect us sexually. Why not extend
this emphasis on sex to deter-
mining the weather?
I know for a certainty rac-
coons are more interested in mat-
ing than they are in determining
the future weather. Example: the
present proliferation of little rac-
coons!
Personally, I don't believe in
the groundhog syndrome. I'm


more of a furry squirrel or moss
on the south side of the tree
man, myself.
Just the same, I'm glad the
groundhog/woodchuck/raccoon
saw his/their shadow Thursday.
I wouldn't want any legend spoil-
ing this "winter" weather we have
been having. I'm ready for six
more weeks of it.
THE KIND OF winter the
world is having this year, also
causes me to consider the warn-
ing of the "greenhouse effect" in
about the same light as the
groundhog theory.
In other words, I find it hard
to believe.
If all the world was having
the winter we are having here in
Gulf county, I would be prone to
accept the warnings of the green-
house effect. With the balmy,.
sunshine days we have been ex-
periencing; the perfect days for


getting outside; It would be easy
to convince anyone the world is
warming up and all of it is due to
the gasses we human beings are
releasing into the atmosphere.
Read the papers Listen to
the news reports Up yonder in
the northern third of this tired
old earth, they are freezing their
buns offl It doesn't sound much
like the earth is warming up with
temperatures of 87 degrees below
'zero, like it was in Alaska the
other day. And when they hover
at 50 degrees below zero for
weeks at a time, it sort of shoots
holes in the warming theory.I
True, it's warm and dlear
here, but while the elements are
leaving us alone, they are severe-
ly punishing people somewhere
else.
EVEN THOUGH WE haven't
had any severe weather and even
though the prognostication is


that It will remain beautiful and
typical Florida weather until
Christmas eve, I'm not going to
let my guard down just yet.
When you consider that it is
only the first full week in Febru-
ary and the only snow in the Pan-
handle I have ever seen hap-
pened the latter part of February
and early March, it tells me to
hang loose and be ready for any-
thing.
The blanket will stay on the
bed, the damper will remain open
on the fireplace, the long sleeve
shirts will remain in the closet,
and the long Johns will hang at
ready until Easter day.
Easter day is the real test of
whether or not spring has arrived
in the Panhandle and Punxataw-
ney Phil, Montgomery Wood-
chuck or Dalkeith Dan are rank
amateurs at foretelling the weath-
er, when it comes to wanting real
accuracy.

Blue howled all night every night,
didn't matter to them whether it
was Dog Days, Christmas, East-
er, Valentine's...
I don't know where Dog Days
come from. I have studied on it
for years, I've written essays
about it. I search every National
Geographic I can find looking for
a story on it. I'm fixing to start re-
searching old National Enquirer
editions. I want to know. I've even
asked Blue and Duke about it.
They had lots to say on the sub-
ject but I couldn't make much
sense out of it.
Valentine's Day is the same
way. I didn't have a clue as to
how or why it got started. Of
course, me and Bobby Brewer
and Buddy Wiggleton used- to
speculate back in grammer
school as to how Mary E. and La-
Renda got the whole thing start-
ed. It was the only way they were
ever going to get a card that said
"Be Mine", "Love Always" or "Hugs
and Kisses". Bobby told me about
that little, small tiny fat guy with
wings that went around shooting
arrows at people's hearts but I've
never seen him. This semi-naked
little fat guy musta' had a heck of
a time with Mary E. she didn't
have no heart.
And so, without understand-
ing, without wanting to and en-
tirely against my better Judgment
I handed out Valentine cards for
years. Of course there wasn't
much expense involved. For a
nickel down at the Ben Franklin
Store you could buy a package
that contained six thousand of
those red Valentine cards. And
yes, I sent Mary E. a card. You
had to send everybody onel Of
course, I'd mark through "Will
You Be Mine" and write in 'Yo,
Prune Face".
And every year, without fail,
as I protested the whole business,
Mom would rub my hair and say,
"Son, there's a day coming when
you will see it a little differently."
That day came about my jun-
ior year and the girl's name was
Belinda. She lived in the next
town up the road and she wasn't
like the local girls. She didn't talk
much, she wasn't overweight, she
didn't punch holes in her ears,
she didn't even own an Elvis
Presley bracelet, her hair was
about the same color God started
her out with and she had all her
teeth. Yes sir, she was the pretti-
est girl I had ever seen. That
- naked-little- fat guy had got me
and although I still didn't know
much about Valentine's Day I
was going to use it to let Belinda
know exactly how I felt.
I saved the egg money for
three weeks and bought a box of
Russell Stover Chocolates. It was
heart-shaped and had a big rib-
bon on it. I had it bad, folks.
Mary E., Vicki and LaRenda
wouldn't even speak to me. That
was O.K., I was courting a real
girl.
Belinda took my candy,
thanked me and ate every single
one of those chocolate pieces at
one sitting. She didn't even offer
me one. At one point she was
stuffing'em in with both hands.
She finished, burped and an-
nounced that I could come back
as soon as I got some more can-
dy. Listen, Duke and old Blue
didn't have much but they'd
share.

.Shad


9 Phantry
By Wendell Campbell


Men and Women at Work

Last week, while on my way to do a Job that I wasn't particu-
larly excited about, I spotted a man I know. He was dressed in
shorts, a golf shirt and tennis shoes and was entering a busi-
ness to pay a bill for he and his wife.
It's a known fact that this man doesn't hold a "paying' Job.
His wife works but he doesn't. I try not to be envious of anyone,
but seeing him made me so mad I could have spit!
Anyone who knows me is aware that I have worked hard
most of my life. I am not a lazy person. For most of my adult life
I have adhered to the adage, "All play and no work makes Shad
a broke boyl"
Several years ago a group of women started an organization
called, 'Women's Liberation". The purpose of this organization, I
understand, is to promote women from the boredom of house-
work Into the marketplace. Many women, they say, are not be-
ing "fulfilled" doing housework and raising kids.
Some will probably say this is a foolish statement, and it
may be, but I want to go on record as saying, I'm all for letting
them have it! As I sit at this typewriter I'm ready to change
places with my wife and even she knows I'm not that lazy.
Some of you men might consider the same thing, especially
those of you in our regular card game ard golf group. I have a
plan I think will work. Here's what we could do.
Firstfof all, we quit our jobs and let our wives go to work.
This won't create much of a problem as most of our wives work
already and many of you men in our card and golf groups don't
work that much anyway.
In return for our quitting work, we would assume all house-
hold duties, including cooking, washing, ironing, knitting, shop-
ping for groceries, taking the kids to school and all things the
wife did before. We would ask the wife to continue shopping for
clothes, perfume, jewelry and such because we all know that
women are born to shop.
In the morning we would arise early, put on a load of'
clothes, prepare breakfast, get the kids off to school, put the
clothes in the dryer and, about 8:30 meet at one house and
start cleaning. With all of us working on one house at a time, we
could have the houses clean and be ready to tee off by 10:30, at
the latest.
After a relaxing 18 holes, we would return home, fold the
clothes, prepare bologna sandwiches and Campbell's soup for
supper, shower and put on some exotic cologne for the wife's ar-
rival home. We would need to set aside about 15 minutes to lis-
ten to her complain and grumble about how bad her day at' the
office was. After all, turn around is fair play!
After supper we would clean the kitchen, help the kids with
their homework, balance the checkbook and get ready for the
poker game. On week nights we could only play until 3:00 a.m.,
because if we played later we wouldn't get enough sleep. Friday
and Saturday nights, however, we could play all night long.
It may not work but I don't see one thing wrong with, thjs
plan. Our wives would be fulfilled, knowing they were leading
productive, undomesticated lives, our children would be taken
care of and we men would be happy knowing we were working
hard and doing our share, not to mention playing cards and golf
almost as much as we wanted to.
You men, ,I know, understand and appreciate this plan. Our
only problem now is to convince our wives that it's a feasible al-
ternative.
Why don't we all get together and talk to my wife first?

It's the Word That Counts; Not the Version


Dear Editor.
In response to an article/
letter written by Dale A. Wilhlte,
published February 2 in The Star,
I would like to say that while I
certainly respect the author's
opinions, and admire the depth of
study, I cannot agree with the ba-
sis for his/her argument, which
is, I believe, that the King James
(Authorized) Version of the Bible
is the only translation that is in-
spired by God and whose transla-
tors were correctly guided by the
Holy Spirit.
Although the KJV is assured-
ly a version whose translators
were indeed guided by God, and
whose prose is exquisitely beauti-
ful, it is worth noting that the


KJV as we have it today is not ex-
actly the KJV of 1611 (even
though the title page of your KJV
may say that it is). Publishers
have revised the text of the King
James Version several times, and
the Bible now known as the KJV
is a revision made in 1762 by Dr.
Thomas Paris of Cambridge and
in 1769 by Dr. Benjamin Blayney
of Oxford.
Although some past, present,
and future Bible versions may in-
deed fail, almost every new ver-
sion attempts to improve upon
the accuracy or style of previous
versions, by using eclectic texts,
ancient manuscripts, etc., that
are deemed most reliable and au-
thentic by scholars and experts.


forced is the ban on nudity.
Swarms of deputies have been
known to swoop down on these
dangerous law breakers.
If that wasn't all, pity the un-
suspecting user who comes in
contact with dog and his master.
It is rare to see animals under re-
straint. The results make the in-
truder fair game to be chased
down.
Bottles and cans along with
every known piece of junk litter
the beach. This is an eyesore that
can make your foot sore.
This s is not a plea to make
new laws or to ask that the laws
on the books be enforced. Others
have tried and failed. I often won-
dered how those who object to
nudity got the sheriff to act with
so much authority. This is to
warn those who wish to use the
beach for a little peace and tran-
quility to go elsewhere.
Clyde Branson


An advantage of having vari-
ous versions is that they help to
balance one another theological-
ly. We should thank, God for our
generous supply of English Bible
versions. With them we can dis-
cover the subtle nuances in all of
the ancient Bible manuscripts,
even if we cannot read Greek and
Hebrew. We can read and under-
stand the Word of God and the
message of Jesus Christ in our
/own language. Only when we un-
derstand the Word can the Word
change our lives.
One more thing: I would
argue that we do not have God's
permission to spread the Gospel
as we see fit, but rather, .we are
commanded by God to spread the
Gospel, as guided and directed by
the Holy Spirit.
Lisa L. Ray

Adds Opposition
to Bay Channel
Dear Editor.
As a property owner- in Gulf
County, I would like everyone to
know I am opposed to any Dredg-
ing in St. Joe Bay..As one person
I know said, "There is no such
thing as a clean marina."
Also, I'm sure that when Mr.
Don Hudkins bought his property
on the cape, he knew that driving
had been permitted on the beach-
es from day one.
I cannot see where dredging
in the bay and driving on the
beach by responsible people have
anything in common. Maybe "like
apples and oranges".
Also, the City Council of Port
St. Joe does not have control of
these driving privileges.
Sincerely,
S.F. Tarantino


Dear Editor.
Only a foolhardy pedestrian
would dare use Gulf County
beaches on a holiday weekend.
Pity the poor sunbather about to
be run. down. Isn't it a shame
when fishermen are unable to
fish in peace? The law, such as it
is, permits driving on the beach,
after a small fee is paid. What
right does the stroller have? The
only law I know that is being en-

Tax News By Wayne T. DeW


S -. ,. ,,",
Itt's that time of the year
again. By now you should have
received most, if not all, of the in-
forination you need to prepare
your 1988 tax return. This is the
first weekly column in ,a series
that I will write to help you with
thi task.
"' As with most endeavors, an
understanding of the basics is es-
seutial. This week I will begin
witli two of the basic elements of
a tax return. -
SThe Standard Deduction
S-First, do not forget to take the
standard deduction. This may
sound like a simple statement
buJVthe IRS lists this as one of
thf common mistakes made by
taxpayers. You should take the
standard deduction when it, is
more than the total of your allow-
able: itemized deductions. The
standard deductioni amounts are
as follows:
1. Single $3,000,
2. Marriedillirig jointly 5,000'
3. Married filing separately 2.500
4. Head of Household 4,400
5. Qualifying widow or 5,000
widower
There is hlsoo an additional
amount allowed for those age 65

"Happy Birthday Bev
S'We fove you,
Your family anidfriends


or older for blindness. For singles
this additional amount is $750
and for married taxpayers it is
$600. For example, a married
couple with both spouses 65 or
older the standard deduction is
$6,200 (5,000 + 600 + 600). For a
single that is age 65 or older the
standard deduction is $3,750
(3,000 + 750).
Exemptions
There are two types of exemp-
tions personal and dependency.
The personal exemption is for
yourself and if married, one for
your spouse. A dependency ex-
emption is allowed for each per-
son that meets certain tests that
establishes that person as your
dependent. I will discuss this in
detail next week. You are allowed
$1,950 for each of your exemp-
tions.
With the above information
we can determine who must file a
tax return. If-:your .gross income
for the year is at least as much as
your. standard deduction plus
your personal exemptions then
you must file a tax return.
For ,example, a .married
couple both age 65 or older would
have to file: a return if their gross
income was at least $10,000
(6,200 + 1,950 + 1,950). For a
single person age 65 or older, the
amount is $5,700 (3,750 +
1,950).
There are additional rules, for
. dependents that I will discuss
next week in addition to the rules
determining when a person is
your dependent.

Dance Set
There will be a dance on Fri-
day, February 17. beginning at
7:30 p.m. at the Civic Center in
Blofiuntstown. Music will be by
Sonny :Morris and County Gold
:, Band. '.

the Blountstown Single Club.
Door prizes will be given.

The National Geographic So-

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
United States age 18 to 24, the
youngest group surveyed, knew
less about geography than young
people in any of the other coun-
tries.
Andee is competing now on
the state level. The National Geo-

Early removal of unerupted or impacted third
molars, the "wisdom" teeth, reduces the chances of
gum infections and loss of other molars. The
inflammation of the gum from such a tooth may spread
into a serious infection and the incidence of this type of
infection increases with age.
If you or any member of your family has this
problem, it wouldbe wise to visit a Dentist as soon as
possible. We cater to dental medications and can
supply any needed medicines or dental aids.

By Only 0
For the third time in the last
four games, the Sharks had their
decision made by only one point.
In almost a carbon copy of Friday
night's game with Bay High, the
Sharks edged the Marianna Bull-
dogs Tuesday night by one single
point-63-62.
The Sharks were down by
only two points at half-time, but
slipped to a 10 point deficit by
the middle of the third period be-
fore they started bounding back.
By the end of the third period,
they were only three points be-
hind and driving.
With 20 seconds left in the
game, Kevin Cox was fouled, but
missed the first shot of a one and
one. The Bulldogs rebounded and
moved down the court to set up
for the last shot of the game.
When they couldn't get in posi-
tion they called a time out with
only five seconds remaining.
When they put the ball back in
play, they had to try a 25 footer
at the buzzer and missed, giving
the Sharks a one point win.
The Sharks are now 12-7 for
the season.
Willie Smith paced the
Sharks with 19 points. Kevin Cox
hit for 13 and Eric Langston
scored 11. Cox and Langston
each had one three-pointer.
Mathews led the Bulldogs
with 21 points.

Kevin Cox put the Port St.
Joe Sharks in the lead for the
first time Friday night, with :50
left in the game with the Bay
High Tornadoes, with a three
pointer. The Sharks had been
down by as much as 17 points as
late as the final minutes of the
third period, and finally went on
to lose by one point, but the
Sharks made a drive at winning
in the final period which brought
the partisan home fans to their
feet.
Willie Smith had just tied the
game with 1:50 left in the game,
when he scored on a short Jump-
er. One minute later, Cox hit on
his three pointer to give the
Sharks a one point lead. Bay
then tied the score on a free
throw, as the clock was reaching
its final tick. Eric Langston then
stepped to the foul line for the
Sharks with 17 seconds on the
clock. Langston missed the first
shot, but made the second to re-
gain the one point lead.
Then it happened. Bay fought
off the Sharks' full court press
and worked the ball into the vi-
cinity of the goal with two sec-
onds left in the game. Bay's Zeb

Johnson then hit from about the
free throw line to ice the one
point victory for the Tornadoes.
Willie Smith paced the Shark
shooting with 20 points. Kevin
Cox had 14 points and Eric Lang-
ston 11. Langston and Cox each
had two three-pointers and
Smith had one.
Johnson, who put up the
shot which beat the Sharks,
scored 21 for the night to lead
the Tornadoes.

present for the signing.

Sign with Louisville
Ivey Henderson and Leonard Ray made it official Wednesday
morning as they signed scholarships to play football for the Uni-
versity of Louisville in Kentucky. Ty Smith, defensive end coach'
for the university was present at the 8:30 ceremony, and then left
for Jacksonville where he will sign two additional players. The
University recruited eight high school players in Florida.
Smith said that the probable positions for them would be Hen-
derson at defensive end or linebacker and Ray at defensive tackle.
Both young men were outstanding players for Port St. Joe High
School during their career and had several major universities
looking at them.

and the Committee of 21. Mrs.
Patterson says that this project is
the best thing that has happened
to Gulf County students and feels
that her involvement in it is time
well-spent.
PSJHS has just written and
received a grant to begin the
Teachers As Advisors Program in
grades 9-12. Mrs. Pattersoni
serves on the steering committee
to plan and implement this pro-
gram.
Although she stays busy with
the committees that she serves,
Lewana still has time for her stu-
dents and would rather be in the
classroom than anywhere else.
She says that, 'Teaching Spanish

opportunity to really know my
students and learn to love them
as individuals. I hope I've been
able to instill a love of learning in
them."
"If I could teach them only
one lesson, it would be to respect
others, in spite of cultural, relig-
ious, or racial differences. Think
of the influence I. could indirectly.
have on the world if the handful
of students I've taught would take
this lessor to heart."
Lewana adds that, even
though she stays "bogged down"
with papers, the students make it
all worthwhile. "St. Joe High
School has the best students in
the world. I'm sure they have
meant more to me than I have
meant to them. I really don't
think I could survive without

Let's Do Some Serious Planning for that Spring Garden Project


By Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Director
, Seeds or transplants? Which
.,to use, is a very important deci-
,sion for those planning to grow a
;spring vegetable garden. You can
;successfully produce vegetables
*with either. But, seeds and trans-
iplants both have their advantag-
es and disadvantages. You
'should consider all of these be-
.fore you make up your mind
'about which will be best.
I'll talk about the pros and
cons of starting vegetables with
transplants. I'll offer some tips to
help you get transplants off to a
good start in your garden. My in-
formation was provided by Exten-
sion Vegetable Specialist Jim Ste-
phens.
One advantage ,transplants
offer is an, early start. Trans-.
plants are grown in ,protected
seed flats, or seedbeds. These al-
lows seeds to germinate under
the best possible conditions.
Also, seeds in flats can be started
before the weather is really suita-
ble for planting directly in the
garden. So, whether you grow
you own .transplants, .or. buy
them'at a garden center,,you'll be.
several weeks ahead of gardeners :
who start with seeds.
Using transplants allows you
to choose only the best plants. If
you're raising transplants in your
6 'own seecbed, you'll have many
more plnats. than you really need.,
So, you'inay.select the healthiest
specimenri, If you're, buying.
transplan.ts at the garden center
you canhplck4the best from what's
available. In either case, be sure
you choose only the strongest-
plants for your garden.
The main. disadvantage of us-
ing trarisplants is that the cost

roots. After setting each plant,
carefully pour a little water Into
the hole to settle the soil. Then
cover the wet area with dry soil to


reduce evaporation.
To give transplants a quick
start, apply a starter fertilizer so-
lution. You can buy these already

would mount up quickly if you
bought seedlings for a large gar-
den. Also some crops are hard to
transplant successfully. For ex-
ample, beans, corn, cucumbers,
and turnips do better If they're
started from seeds planted in the
garden.
If you're raising your own
transplants, they should be ready
for the garden when they're four
to six weeks old. Those you buy
usually are ready to set out im-
mediately. If the seedlings are in
individual containers, moisten
the soil before removing them. If
the transplants are grown in peat
pellets, insert them directly in.the
soil. Don't try to remove the
plants from the pellets.
The best time to transplant is
right after a rain when it's cloudy
or in the late afternoon. Handle
the plants gently, don't press
the soil to tighten around the
