Grant Changes

Party Affiliation

First Panhandle Republican
Congressman in History

Congressman Bill Grant
shocked Panhandle politics |
Tuesday morning of this
week, when he changed his
political affiliation from Dem-
ocrat to that of Republican.
Grant made the change in
affiliation in Madison, his
home town, after talking the
move over with some of his.
long-time supporters, includ-
Ing Nolan Treglown. a friend
and Gulf county campaign
manager.
Treglown said Tuesday
Grant had told him, "I figured
I might as well adopt the Re-
publican party as my official
affiliation, since I find I have
been voting along with the
Conservative Republican mi-
nority in Congress..." Grant
said on a recent visit here in Cong. Grant
Port St. Joe that it looked as
if the DImocrats were leaving the conservatives of his
district, which includes much of the Panhandle and
north Florida across to the Atlantic seaboard.
State Republicans were gleeful of the change and held
a big reception in Tallahassee Wednesday to officially
welcome Grant to their fold. High-powered Republicans
on a state and national level were in attendance to con-
gratulate Grant on his decision, including national party
chairman Lee Atwell, state chairman Van Poole and Gov-
ernor Bob Martinez.
Attending the reception from Gulf county were
county Republicans chairman Stiles Brown and Nolan
Treglown.
Grant's defection to the Republican fold makes him
the first Republican member of Congress ever, from
north Florida and the Panhandle.



City Mulls Over ITC


Finances, Offers


Attorney Carol McCauley and
manager Clay Harris of ITC
cable TV company were back
before the City Commission Tues-
day night, in an attempt to gain
approval of a franchise to install
a second cable television service
in Port St. Joe.
McCauley delivered a finan-
cial statement from the petition-
ers, but gave no digest of what
the thick report contained. "I just
received it myself, so I am not all
that familiar with the information
it contains," the Panama City at-
torney said.
McCauley also reported he
had been informed by company
officers that they would propose
placing service lines underground
and their published rates would
be frozen for at least two years.
Commissioner Roche asked
about making paving repairs
where lines are placed in the


ground. Harris said the firm
didn't disturb paving in their in-
stallations. '"We bore under-
ground rather than dig ditches,"
he said.
GULF DICKERING
Attorney Bob Moore notified
the Board that Gulf Cable TV, the
present cable TV service in Port
St. Joe, has entered into- an
agreement that may result in the
local firm being sold. It has been
operating in receivership since
the death of owner Bob Newman
last fall.
Moore told the Board, 'We
hope you can table this matter
[with ITC] to give us an opportu-
nity to review any material they
have given you and have an ap-
propriate response to the infor-
mation."
Mayor Frank Pate said, 'We
have no intention of making a de-

Marijuana Plants Found
Port St. Joe Chief of Police Carl Richter and Officer Butch
Arendt show two marijuana plants discovered in a wooded area
in the vicinity of 20th Street this week. The plants were confiscat-
S ed but no arrests have been made. See story on Page 3.


Street Talk Sounding Off


Spaceport
Street talk in other areas of
the state has the proposed com-
mercial rocket installation on
Cape San Blas sounding off even
before it is in operation.
With street talk in other are-
as of Florida identifying the pro-
posed facility as a miniature ver-
sion of Cape Kennedy, noise and
the danger of mis-firing rockets
have become a topic of conversa-.
tion, causing some apprehension
among residents of the Peninsula
who live near the proposed rocket
site.
The initial information on the.
site stressed it would be used
only about a half dozen times a
year, or even less, which would
mean the facility would receive
minimal use. Only small rockets
are to be launched at the site
from 10 to 60 feet in length.
The rockets to be launched,
would not go into orbit, but
would obtain altitudes in the
.range of 20,000 feet before their
mission would be over and the
payload splash down in the Gulf
of Mexico for recovery.
The installation planned for
the Port St. Joe vicinity would be
a site for launching test rockets
for industrial experimentation
with weightlessness, with most of
the action probably slated to
come from educational institu-
tions. Port St. Joe is about cen-
trally located between four or five
major universities in the state.
Fears of the potential size,
noise and danger of the facility
have been aired in daily news
media around the Big Bend of
Florida, as being a popular con-
cern here in Gulf county

JOHN L. MILLER, JR.


Miller Named

Director of

Florida Bank
John L. Miller, Jr., was elect-
ed to serve as a director of the
Florida National Bank here in
Port St. Joe Thursday, at the an-
nual organizational meeting of
the board.
Miller will replace his father,
J. Lamar Miller, Sr., on the direc-
tor seat. J. L. Miller, Sr., is retir-
ing as the senior director of the
bank, after serving 32 years in
the capacity of director.
Miller is president of the Mill-
er Agency, Inc., of Port St. Joe
and Miller Marine, Inc., of Apa-
lachicola, Chevron Oil product
dealerships.
The new director is a member
of the Port St. Joe Port Authority,
the Rotary Club, director of the
Florala Telephone Company, Inc.,
Florala, Ala., and is a member of
the Board of Trustees of the First
United Methodist Church in Port
St. Joe.
Miller is a graduate of Port
St. Joe High School and Auburn
University, School of Engineering
in 1964. He was employed by the
Rust Engineering and West Point
Pepperell before returning to
Port St. Joe in 1975, to be asso-
ciated with the Miller Agency.
He is married to the former
Margie Grimes of Phenix City, Al-
abama. They have three children,
John L., III, of Apalachicola, Lee
and Vivian, both of Port St. Joe.


"We're proud of our little
park, here!"
These were the words of Mex-
ico Beach Commissioner, Al Ca-
they, as he stood, with his hands
on his hips, gazing down nearly
700 feet of newly constructed fa-
cilities on the banks of the Mexi-
co Beach canal Friday afternoon.
Cathey was speaking of a
nearly completed project consist-
ing of docks and fishing piers on
the Gulf of Mexico end of the ca-
nal, which has been built with a
Bay county grant and funds from
the state boating fees, totaling
some $160,000.
Initiated early last summer,
the new park offers a public place
for residents and visitors alike to
relax, fish, picnic or tie up their
boat for loading and unloading.
Also included In the project is a
large parking area which also
contains public rest rooms.
IMPORTANT FACILITY
Cathey said, "People just
didn't realize how important the
state's Wayside Park was to us
here at Mexico Beach. Since the
state shut it down a few years
back, there has been no place
where visitors could get to the
beach, fish, or use a public rest
room in Mexico Beach. With this
facility, we can take care of these
needs."
Built of heavy timbers by the
Gaddie Construction Company of
Panama City, the complex lines
about half the shoreline on the
west side of the Mexico Beach ca-
nal. It includes three islands
where water is available, as well
as trash receptacles, picnic ta-
bles, graveled walkways, steps to
a parking apron along the road
above the level of the docks and
numerous places to tie pleasure
boats.
"It's a real fine installation for
us to have and we're all proud of
it," Cathey said.
At the south end of the new
public dock and pier, a dredge
works as often as needed to keep
a boat channel open to the Gulf
of Mexico. The dredge pumps the
spoil into a diked in area on the
beach, where the water is allowed
to percolate into the ground or
find its way back into the Gulf.
When it's full, the dike and spoil
are leveled with a bulldozer, re-


nourishing the beach.
On the east side of the canal,
where homes line the entire bank
of the waterway, property owners
have installed sheet piling along
the edge of the water, diked and
landscaped the slope from their
dwellings and generally developed
the east bank of the canal.
The west bank was unoccu-
pied, due to the road's close
proximity to the edge of the wa-
ter. This property between the
road and the edge of the water is
land that has been utilized for
the new park.
FILE NEW GRANT
Cathey said the City of Mexi-
co Beach has already filed a new
grant to complete the develop-
ment all the way back to Highway
98 on the canal. Presently, the
dock construction ends at the
curve in the channel, covering
about half the area available for


such a development.
"If we get the grant and get
the rest of this property devel-
oped, we'll really have something
.to be proud of here," Cathey
proudly proclaimed. 'There's
nothing like this from St. Andrew
near Panama City to Carrabelle
over in Franklin county. People
are already using it, even though
we aren't completely finished
with it yet. The park is going to
be a valuable asset to our town."
The Commissioner said only
a small part of the construction
is still to be done. The public
restrooms aren't quite completed
and picnic tables in the large
parking area aren't in place.
'We'll be ready to cut a ribbon in
just a week or two," Cathey said.
Mexico Beach, whose big sell-
ing points are a family beach and
salt water fishing, now has the
facilities available for both.


Picnic and rest facilities, such as the one shown above, makes
Mexico Beach's new park a fine place for leisure.

Sunland


A Poor Choice to Cut,
The Bible says, 'The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away."
Last week, Governor Bob Martinez gave Gulf county a boost
when he announced one day he had designated St. Joseph Pe-
ninsula as the site for the state's proposed industrial rocket
launch booster site. Then, the next day, the Governor did
something religious: he removed some of the operating funds
for the Sunland Recreation Park on that same peninsula where
the sounding rocket launch site is going to be.
Not only the Lord, but Governor Bob Martinez giveth, and
he taketh away.
Strictly from the viewpoint of the dollar, Gov. Martinez may
have made a good trade with us. From the viewpoint of helping
and doing good for human beings, his deal stinks!
We have been out there when a few handicapped children
have been using the park. We have been a handicapped child
once ourself and we can tell you from first-hand experience,
many handicapped children can't do very much for enjoyment.
When something like the Sunland park is provided which will
allow him to taste the good things of life, it is a treasured facili-
ty.
It doesn't take much to please a handicapped child. He ex-
pects no pleasure to come his way at all and if his outlook on
life isn't great, he turns into a surly individual, full of self-pity.
Just a little recreation or enjoyment is especially treasured.
Have you ever played football in a wheelchair? Have you
ever tried to go to the beach confined to a wheelchair? When
you are confined like that about the only enjoyment available is
what one can get with his eyes. A participation sport is almost
out of the question.
With the special facilities and equipment available at the St.
Joseph Peninsula Sunland park, these kids, who are normally
left sitting on the sidelines, can be participants for one of the
very few times in their life.
Cutting the appropriation to Sunland may trim some.
$89,004 from state expenditures, but it will also cut enjoyment
worth billions from some very special people.
Cutting a couple of trips by officials to "inspect" some ex-
penditure of tax money for the purpose of merely being seen by
"their constituents" would probably save the same amount of
money and do our handicapped much more good.


Need Performance

If the Gulf county Commission will be specific in their re-
quirements of a cable TV firm franchised to serve unincorporat-
ed sections of the county, they will remove the problems they
have had with the several owners of the cable service along the
coastline in our county.
The current manager of MultiVision has been all but invisi-
ble until another firm stepped in and expressed a desire to be
of service to the area and provide cable TV which would be af-
fordable and viewable by the area now being served by Multvi-
slon.
Even our new County Commissioners are aware-ofthe fact
there vwas no communication available-betweeCifltthecdunty and
MultiVision of a nature to get problems solved until the new
firm stepped in. MultiVision now says it has made improve-
ments to their system, but so far as the County Commission
knew, their overtures to get improvements were being ignored.
The real problem with cable TV at the beaches is that the
FCC has dropped all controls over the service and the firms can
do whatever they want to do with impunity so long as a
competitor doesn't threaten to step in and do it better.
Even here in Port St. Joe, another cable TV firm has ex-
pressed a desire to set up shop and supposedly provide a more
satisfactory product than the present supplier. Of course, they
will have to provide a superior product at a reasonable price to
begin with. But, what about down the road, when one of the
firms has to fold up and head for greener pastures when the
better firm takes the lion's share of the customers? What about
the survivor? What will his service be like when he is a monop-
oly again?
Port St. Joe's Commission is demanding financial reports,
performance bonding, references, etc., to guarantee, as near as
possible, that the good claims will remain after the need to im-
press has passed on.
Whether or not the county grants a second franchise, these
items should be top priorities in making that decision.

CAN YOU REMEMBER when
you were a kid in elementary
school, still too young to pursue
the girls [or boys], but still old
enough to be intrigued by the op-

Do you particularly remember
the unsigned notes you would get
on occasion which told of an ad-
miration from afar? Epistles from
secret admirers, so to speak.
If you remember those little
notes, furtively passed your way
without the teacher seeing, or
someone else knowing about
them, you remember they made
your ego swell considerably with-
out any particular special desires
on your part that it do so. There's

mired.
Nobody likes to be disliked or
despised.
Being admired secretly has
that sense of adventure or mys-
tique about it which appeals to
the most jaded of interests. Who
doesn't like to fantasize as to who
it could be out there who admires
us from a distance and in secret?

HAVING A SECRET admirer
can also cause problems as well
as sinfully delicious feelings. Es-
pecially if you are supposed to be
happily married and all that.
An announced secret admirer
can cause all kinds of problems
at home. The. one admired can
staunchly claim to high heaven
he/she doesn't know a thing
about a secret admirer. But,
when a proclamation comes forth
of the existence of such an admir-
er, it's hard to deny or defend


against.
Secret admirers can cause all
kinds of problems, and don't you
forget it.

HERE, FRENCHIE AND I
have been married for 43 years.
We have had relatively few prob-
lems of a marital nature during
those 43 years. We don't fuss too
much. If I do something wrong, I
just get the silent treatment until
I figure out what is wrong and try
to settle the problem.
Even with this track record, I
can manage to get into enough
trouble at home without help
from anyone else. I just have to
leave my dirty underwear lying, in
the bathroom floor and I get an
icy stare. I merely have to let the
dog outside right after Frenchie
has fed the cat and I hear about
it. Cutting off a rose bush or pull-
ing up a flower, thinking it is a


weed. has always been the unpar-
donable nuptial sin around our
house.
Until now.
Now, the unpardonable sin is
getting a valentine from a "secret
admirer".
I think, from the treatment it
engendered, that valentine could
more truthfully have been signed,
"From a Secret Enemy."
I got one of those adventur-
ous secret admirer epistles on
Valentine's Day. I still don't know
from whom it came, but I know it
caused me to have to face a grill-
ing worse than a firing squad.
I didn't get that valentine
from a secret admirer in secret, is
what the problem was. There was
nothing secretive about the way it
was, delivered. Now, everybody in
town has probably heard that old
Wes must be fooling around be-
cause he got a valentine from a


secret admirer on Valentine's
Day.
This particular valentine was
in the form of a singing message
on Valentine's Day.
My aunt Ruth Ramsey, Mrs.
Ennis Sellers and Mrs. Emmy
Joines came prancing in the of-
fice on Valentine's Day, grinning
from ear to ear with the expecta-
tion of my discomfort at what
they were about to do. They in-
formed me I had a singing valen-
tine from that secret admirer I've
been trying to explain to everyone
that I knew nothing about.
They handed me a single car-
nation wrapped in green tissue
paper with a sprig of fern sticking
out the top, tuned up, and war-
bled, "Let Me Call You Sweet-
heart."

"LET ME CALL YOU Sweet-
heart!" Why not "I'll Be Glad


.1


When You're Dead, You Rascal
Youl' I might not have liked the
sentiment of that song, but life af-
ter the singing would have been
much simpler.
I didn't dare walk off, or shun
those kind ladies. They were just
doing their job. They had been
hired by someone to embarrass
me royally, and they were doing
an excellent job of what they were
paid to do.
The song was well done, the
carnation was very pretty and all
that. The problem was, I read
where a single flower sent by a
secret admirer [there's that per-
son again] is far more meaningful
than a full dozen or more.
That's some more of my prob-
lem. I sent a full dozen for Valen-
tine's Day, and with all the other
things happening on that day, I
just may be in the doghouse until
Valentine's Day of pext year ..
or the next decade.

yet. And as far as I know she.
doesn't have any prospects.
This girl that has reportedly.
married cousin Russ is, I think,.
named Ann. Well, I've got a prob-
lem with that right off. We like
girls in our family with double.
names. Know what I mean? Sa-'
rah Ophelia, Thelma Lou, Bea-
trice Louise, Christe Rae, Marga-

Mae well, you get the idea. I
married a Cathy Lee myself. It all
started with my Granddaddy Jim
Bob. He felt a woman with a dou-
ble name could just naturally
plow a straighter row. He allowed
as how Mary Beth could handle a
pair of mules much better than
just plain Elizabeth.
Last time I talked to Aunt
Ruby Nell she didn't seem too
worried about the girl's name.
She was more concerned about
the fact this young lady is a Pres-
byterian. And a Yankee. Ruby
was wondering just how the fami-
ly would take to a Presbyterian
Yankee. I don't think I've ever
seen one. Shucks, I've never even
been to Pennsylvania. Ben Frank-
lin spent some time there so you
know they've got a sense of hu-
mor. She's going to need that. I
do know one. person from Penn-
sylvania and she's O.K. But you
know what, that silly girl thinks
I'm the one who talks funny.
Ruby Nell, as usual, has got
the cart before e horse. The sit-
uation is not how the family
reacts to Ann the question is
how is this young lady going to
"take" to our family. Now, I don't
know how a Presbyterian Yankee
acts or what she's "like" but
you can rest assured that we've
got somebody in this family that
acts just that same way. One
thing is for sure she ain't going
to stick out.
I'm just waiting till we get her
down to Mount Zion for home-
coming the second Sunday in
July. I want to see how she eats
com-on-the-cob. I also want to
see how she goes after Miss Imo-
gene Hagan's deep south fried
chicken. If she rolls up both
sleeves, foregoes a napkin, gets
both elbows parallel with the
ground and attacks with gusto,
why, she'll do.
I want to ask her about those
Conestoga wagons they build over
in Lancaster and., maybe she
bring down some Amish sausage
and, if I get lucky, she'll tell me
how to make a shoo-fly pie. By
the time we get to the squash and
rutabagers I'll be telling her about
Jesse Cole White, a legend in
those parts 'cause he could pitch
equally well with his right or left
hand. Don't you worry Ruby Nell
we'll make her fit in.
I do have one small sugges-
tion. Reckon we could change her
name to Flora Ann or maybe An-
nie Bob.
And a word in closing to any
eligible bachelor out there. Dixie
Faye is not half as bad as Leon
makes her out to be. Now, I know
she's nearing 20 and that's bor-
dering on late for marrying, but
boys, she can stump whip chit-
lins like nobody I've ever seen.
Call for an appointment.

Some Things I


Worry About

Bright and early this morning I had some morning coffee
and then took a brisk walk that lasted a little over an hour.
The reason I went walking so early was to try to relieve some
of the tension built up in me from worrying.
Some time ago I promised myself that I wasn't going to wor-
ry about things. After all, worrying never helped anything and a
current song I hear from time to time on the radio admonishes
all of us, "Don't worry, be happy!" I even wrote an article once
about why we shouldn't worry.
What it boils down to is this: I worry all the time and I can't
stop. I've tried being just concerned and forgetting my problems,
- but it doesn't work. My concern soon gives way to worry, which
upsets me greatly.
While walking and worrying this morning, I wondered, why
and I doing all this worrying while the rest of the world seems to
be sleeping away, unconcerned? Maybe some of you worry, too, I
thought, but are able to get a good night's sleep. If you do worry,
do you worry about the same things I do and does it help?
Below are a few things I worry about. If you are a "worrier",
you might compare my worries with yours and see if we're on
the same worry-track. A few of the things I worry about are:
Money If I were rich I don't believe I would worry about
money. Although I'm not destitute and I don't worship wealth, I
wonder how it would feel not to worry about finances. After all,
if you have a family, as I do, you-are aware that money goes out
much faster than it comes in, and there seems to be an endless
need for more.
My children Show me a person who doesn't worry about
their children and I'll show you a bachelor that hasn't been
around much. I wonder if my children are eating the right foods,
getting enough sleep, studying enough, seeing the right pro-
grams on T.V. and ignoring or taking lessons from my mistakes
so they won't make the same ones.
Cancer and heart attacks Every day I read or hear
something about the two biggest killers of all time, and it wor-
ries me. Although I keep a somewhat regular check on myself
for both, I worry that one day one of them might sneak up on
*me and, before I know it, my worries will be over. Cancer and
'heart attack are two things to worry about, in my opinion.
The ozone layer Almost every day I read or hear some-
thing about chemicals eating away the ozone layer surrounding
the earth. It's been a long time since we've had a good, long,
freezing winter and news reports Indicate the reason is there's a
hole, in the ozone layer. I worry about them shooting rockets
through it and making it bigger.
My loss, of memory For several years I have contended
that older people don't lose their memory, they just have more to
remember than do the younger people. It seems, however, that I
-was just making an excuse for my memory loss. Now days I for-
get the simplest of things, except the things I worry about.
My wife This is one exception. Besides, you don't think
I'm crazy, do you?
S You may or may not worry about the same things or you
may not worry at all. If you don't, forget you read this and don't
worry about me.
If, on the other hand, you do worry and about some of the
same things I worry about, do you think we're a little crazy and
need help? .. *
I don't khow. abouttyou but I don't have the money fopro-
fessional help so I'm going to try not to worry about it.
Good luck to you!


Police Have Week Full


Damage

Could Be

Prevented
Dear Editor.
What is all this foolishness of
"RED ALERT', "DESTROY THE
BAY', "FLOWERS TO BUILD A
MARINA ON BAY'; 'Well, we are
not going to build a marina, we
Just want to dredge a canal 100'
x 2,000' x 5' to allow small boats
access to Tapper's Hole".
In my opinion, it's good we
have individuals such as Lang-
don Flowers who want to en-
hance the lives of those who live
in Gulf County and use St. Joe
Bay. In addition, it's good that we
have individuals who have the in-
terest to keep these aggressive
types like Langdon in line.
I'm glad it's Langdon who has
the desire to do this and not
someone we do not know. I have
worked with and for Langdon on
several business ventures. In
every case I have found him to
be 100% "A Man of His Word". I
have done in excess of two mil-
lion dollars in transactions with
Langdon on a "hand shake". In
every respect he honored his
commitments. In this case, it is
not a case of the people of Gulf
County vs. a developer. This is a
situation where we the people of
Gulf County need to unite with
Langdon and do what is right. In
any event, no one wants to de-
stroy the environment we now en-
joy on the Cape and in the Bay.
This writer shares in owner-
ship of 700 feet of bay front prop-
erty. I do not want this destroyed.
I suggest the following be a for-
mat to resolve the marina dredg-
ing issue:


1. Have Mr. Flowers reveal
short and long term plans with
the Tapper Hole property.
2. Have Mr. Flowers make a
commitment/statement to Gulf
County with respect to this devel-
opment.
3. After Mr. Flowers gains or
loses the confidence of the public,
we join him within his efforts to
secure permitting or we oppose
him.


Agrees C-30
Dear Editor:
I was very pleased to read a
recent article your paper pub-
lished concerning the poor condi-
tions along County Road 30 in
South Gulf County. "Put It In
Your Plans" 2 February, '89 hits
the nail on the head.
My wife and I became proper-
ty owners in 1985 and are very
fond of the area and especially
the beach along the cape. We
have traveled C-30 hundreds of
times and often wondered how a
roadway along which a very large
portion of the tax revenues must
come from could be neglected
year after year!
It is an over used term but,
'The squeaky wheel gets the
grease" so here's one squeaky
There must be a few hundred or I
should say thousand dollars that
can be earmarked for repairs.

cision tonight. We want to be as-
sured the people will get good
service before we make a move."
Between now and the March
7 meeting, the Commission will
study the financial report submit-
ted Tuesday night and corisider
the need for ITC to provide a
bond before making a final deci-.
son on whether or not to allow
the franchise to be approved.
SUPPORT SPACEPORT
The Board of Directors of the
Port St. Joe/Gulf, County Cham- ,,
ber of Commerce asked the City
Commission to officially support
,the concept of a spaceport being
' located in this vicinity, Tuesday


of Activity


night.
Mike McDonald, retiring pres-
ident, asked the Commission to
officially approve of a resolution
supporting the location of the fa-
cility on St. Joseph's Peninsula
on Eglin Air Force Base property.
It took only a minute for the
Commission to express their
unanimous support and approval
and to approve a resolution stat-
ing their support.
OTHER BUSINESS
In other items of business,
the.'Cbfnxflssiofl:
1 -Unanimously approved a
resolution calling on the State
Department of Corrections to
build a second state prison com-
plex in Gulf county.


4. If Mr. Flowers cannot get
the support of Gulf County, I do
not think he will continue with
his plan. If we do support him, I
feel the following criteria should
be met:
A. A performance bond be
posted by Mr. Flowers. A serious
bond, perhaps $5,000,000, that
in the event Mr. Flowers' employ-
ees or contractors did not keep
with the intent and commit-


ments, the bond would be used to
restore the damage.
B. No permitting by Federal
and State Regulatory Agencies be
issued until proof of land owner-
ship and bonding was in order.
(This is in addition to normal per-
mitting documents.)
I look forward to seeing all of
you at the public hearings.
Yours very truly,
George Killorin


Needs Some Attention


Yes, I agree a resurfacing pro-
gram must be formulated and set
into motion but for the immediate
future some upkeep spot repair
must be directed at several very
bad spots along the roadway.
The repair work should com-
mence at the very entrance and
exit of C-30 and US 98E south of
the city. I'm sure many wonder if
they took a wrong turn when
viewing the surface condition of
the entrance. Then the "roller
coaster" ride begins. Within one-
half mile at the first gentle curve
is one of the worst spots. Patch-
ing the sink areas for approxi-
mately 100 feet would take care
of that area! There's an area
along the stretch by Presnell's
Camp, another very bad area just
prior to the "dead man's curve"
and a few more areas east bound.
My point is with some well placed


temporary repairs to iron out the
really bad spots the remaining
miles are liveable until a resur-
face program can commence!
I do want to add that it has
been "especially comforting" to
have the numerous ROUGH
ROAD SIGNS in place. Who says
the county commission doesn't
have a sense of humor!
We appreciate your paper and
look forward to reading it each
week. The general content is very
good and your coverage of local
and public activities is excellent!
Keep up the good work. I would
hope to see follow-up articles on
repair and resurfacing of what
must surely be one of the worst
stretches of county road in the
state of Florida!
Sincerely,
Larry Livingston

Runaway

Breaks Into

Henderson's
A 13-year-old Eastpoint boy
was caught Wednesday night, af-
ter he broke into Henderson's
Produce Market on Highway 98.
The young boy was caught as he
exited the building, after break-
ing down the rear door to gain
entry.
I But, the break-in 'wasn't the
real story.
The boy had been chastised
at home and school earlier in the
day and had decided to just take
off to parts unknown.
To provide a means of travel-
ling, the boy stole a Volvo in
Eastpoint and drove around for a
period of time before ruining a
tire on the Volvo, causing it to go
flat. He then abandoned the Vol-
vo and stole a late model Ford
LTD, this time, making it out of
Eastpoint.
He arrived in Port St. Joe
sometime around 9:30 p.m., and
ran up on the curb at the traffic
pattern which divides Highway
98 and Monument Avenue,
knocking over the traffic sign
there and causing a tire to blow
out on theLTD.--- _
By the time he reached Hen-
derson's, he was hungry and pro-
ceeded to break in to get some-
thing to eat. .H. B. Henderson
came by his place checking it be-
fore he went home for the night
and found the young boy inside.


WRECK DAMAGE
An automobile, a utility pole
and a highway sign were heavily
damaged by a skidding 1986
Chevrolet Saturday night about
11:45 p.m., driven by Bryan Fre-
drick Braswell of Apalachicola.
According to a Port St. Joe
Police Department report, Bras-
well and a passenger, Allen Mar-
tin, also of Apalachicola,. were,
driving south on Long Avenue.
and failed to stop at a stop sign
on-Niles Road. Their vehicle skid-


ded across the intersection,
struck the utility pole guy wire,
slid sideways and rolled over,
coming to rest against the power
pole. .
Braswell escaped with only
minor injuries and Martin was
not injured.
Damage to the car, pole and
sign was estimated at $9,000.
Braswell was charged with
unlawful speed by investigating
officers.

the board. of directors for the
state of the savings organization.
Smith said the financial
health of credit unions over the
nation is generally sound and
cites a different philosophy of op-
eration from other savings insti-
tutions for this situation. He
pointed out the average maturity
of credit union loans is only 25
months, resulting in very little in-
terest rate risk.
The local credit union presi-
dent pointed out the institution is
Insured by the NCUSIF, which
enjoys good fiscal health. He
said the insurance fund has re-
serves of $1.26 per $100 of dd-
posits, approaching the legal
maximum of $1.30, to be one of
the most fiscally sound. of sav-
ings insurers.
Smith said Congress is con-
sidering a move to merge the
NCUSIF with the troubled FSLIC,
which insures savings and loans
and the FDIC, which insures
banks. He pointed out credit un-
ions across the nation are oppos-
ing the effort.
Locally, Smith said the St.
Joe Papermakers FCU has set
aside reserves in excess of that
required by law to cover losses.
The president said, "We provide


free credit life insurance to our
members. Because of this and
sound management practices, we
have consistently received excel-
lent ratings from auditors and
federal examiners who check us."
Smith said the local credit
union organization had increased
its assets by well over a million
dollars from last year's financial
report.

Tax News


Each exemption you claim on
your 1988 tax return will reduce
your taxable income by $1,950.
There are two types of exemptions
- personal exemptions and depen-
dency exemptions.
Generally, you are allowed
one exemption for yourself and, if
married, one for your spouse.
These are the personal exemp-
tions. Your spouse is not consid-
ered your dependent. You are
permitted one exemption for your
spouse merely because you are
married. Of course, if you file sep-
arate returns, you cannot claim
the exemption for your spouse
unless your spouse had no gross
income. You cannot take an ex-
emption for a spouse claimed as
an exemption by another taxpay-
er.
You are allowed one exemp-
tion for each person you can
claim as a dependent. There are
five tests a person must meet to
qualify as your dependent.
1. The person must live with
you for the entire year or be relat-
ed to you. A person that is related
to you does not have to live with
you to qualify as a dependent.
There is a list of specific relatives
that qualifies so you can refer to
your 1040 package instructions
for this list.
2. The person must be a U.S.
citizen, resident, or national, or a
resident of Canada or Mexico for
some part of the calendar year. \
3. You cannot take an exemp-
tion for your dependent if he or


she files a joint return. An excep-
tion to this rule is if your depen-
dent files a joint return merely to
claim a refund and does not
claim his or her own exemption.
4. Generally, you may not
claim an exemption for a depen-
dent that has gross income of
$1,950 or more for the year. This
test does not apply if the depen-
dent is your child and is either
under age 19 or a student.
5. You must provide more
than half of a person's total sup-
port for the calendar year to meet
the support tests. There are also
rules that allow one taxpayer to
claim an exemption where several
people have supported one per-
son. Also, there are rules for de-
pendents or divorced or separated
parents.
The scope of this article does
not allow a full discussion of all
the rules and exceptions to the
rules. Should you have further
questions, you should consult the
instructions to your tax return
package or your tax advisor.

Neighborhood Watch Effective


Kiwanians were told that a
neighborhood watch operation
both helps solve crimes which are
committed but are mainly de-
signed and work very effectively
in deterring crimes before they
are committed.
Frank Torena, production
manager for St. Joe Container
Company, who has spent part of
his career with the Chicago, Ill.,
police department, said the patrol
by neighbors of their vicinity has


poven to be a real effective means
of discouraging crimes in their
neighborhoods.
"Just putting up the signs,
advising the neighborhood has a
neighborhood watch in effect, dis-
courages a great number of
crimes against people and their
property," he said.
Torena said he is currently
helping Panama City Beach to set
up a Community Radio Watch
in which patrolling residents of

the neighborhood are connected
to the law enforcement agency of-
fices and report any unusual or
suspicious activity in their neigh-
borhood, which are investigated
by professionals.
'The effectiveness of this or-
ganization is that the criminal
doesn't know when he may be ob-
served or who is actively looking
for criminal activities at the time
he is in operation," Torena said.
He pointed out there are no set
hours to patrol. "The element of
surprise is the best weapon this
program has going for it."
The speaker said the neigh-
borhood watch program costs the
ordinary citizen participating in
the activity a little bit of money,
and some of his time, "but the re-
sults are a safer and more secure
neighborhood for he and his fam-
ily."
Guests of the club were Key

Davidson, Cy Riley and Aaron
Wilson. Carl Goddard of Jackson-
ville, was also a visitor.

should not be taken without a physician's approval. If

PSJ 68, WEWA 63
Port St. Joe's Sharks closed
out their season in the Coliseum
Monday night, as they edged
their county rival, Wewahitchka,
68-63.
The Gators have had their
problems winning this year, but
played the Sharks toe to toe as
they lived up to their past reputa-
tion of meeting the Sharks on lev-
el ground,, no matter what their
record.
The Sharks had a 34-25 edge
at half time, but the Gators put
on a run in the third period,
which wasn't quite enough to
overtake the Shark lead.
It was a wild last period, with
the Sharks scoring 22 points
and the Gators putting 20 mark-
ers on the board in a run-and-


gun stanza.
Willie Smith led both teams
with his 29 points for the
Sharks. Eric Langston with 15
and Kevin Cox with 11 were the
other Sharks scoring in double
figures.
Wilbert Wright led the Gators
with 21 points. Arthur and Mi-
chael Myers each added 13
points.
Score by Quarters:
Port St. Joe 19 15 12 22-68
Wewahitchka 15 10 18 20-63

A Fast-Running Education Tool


Game Commission's New Power Boat Teaches Safety


Modem law enforcement re-
quires modern equipment, so the
Game and Fresh Water Flsh Com-
midssion has acquired a high-tech,
high-speed powerboat to help en-
force boating safety laws.
The craft, which the Commis-
sion also will use as an education
tool in its stepped-up water safety
program, is a gift from Commis-
sion Chairman William G. Bo-
stick. Jr. of Winter Haven.
"In recent years, the power-
boat has become the vessel of
choice for many of Florida's pleas-
ure boaters." Bostick said. "The
rise in popularity of these fast-
moving boats has increased our
concern about safety. By adding
this state-of-the-art powerboat to
our fleet of conventional vessels,
we will be better equipped to pro-
vide effective law enforcement
-and promote safety on Florida's
:waterways."
Col. Robert M. Brantly, the
Commission's executive director,
said the agency is stepping up ef-


forts to prevent accidents, inju-
ries and deaths that result from
careless boat operation.
"Last year we launched Oper-
ation SWAMP as part of our ef-
forts to increase boating safety,"
Brantly said. "We hope the acqui-
sition of this vessel will help us
achieve our goal of making Flori-
da's lakes and rivers safer for
everyone."
Brahtly said the Commission
plans to use the craft statewide,
especially on larger lakes and riv-
ers where boating activity is
heaviest.
The vessel is a 24-foot Aron-
ow catamaran powerboat with
two specially modified, limited
edition Johnson 4-liter, V-8 en-
gines that supply 300 horsepow-
er each. Second Effort Perfor-
mance Products of Lake Hamilton
will train the crew of two wildlife
officers selected for the assign-
ment.
The boat's high-tech electron-
ic equipment features the latest

innovations.
For instance, the craft's pro-
grammable radio, the type all
Commission law enforcement ve-
hicles carry, also will include an
intercom system to enable the
crew to communicate while wear-
ing safety helmets during high-
speed operation.
It also will have a state-of-
the-art marine radio, navigational
radar, Loran, hand-held speed
radar gun, two blue strobe lights,
two remove control spotlights and
a 200-watt electronic siren/PA
system.
Brantly said the primary use
of the vessel will be to enforce
boating safety laws, but it will
serve other needs as well. ,
"Safety patrols will concen-
trate on laws concerning boating
under the influence, reckless op-
eration and manatee speed
zones," he said. 'We also will use
the craft for selected law enforce-
ment operations and for search-


and-rescue missions when in-
clement weather requires the use
of its specialized electronic equip-
ment."
Wherever the vessel goes, it's
bound to attract attention. Brant-
ly said the Commission plans to
take advantage of that to spread
its message about boating safety.
'Too many people don't real-
ize how dangerous a boat can be
if handled improperly," Brantly
said. "In any boating accident, an
occupant has a 57% chance of
suffering injury or death. Last
year there were 1,200 boating ac-
cidents in Florida waters, result-
ing in 109 deaths and 575 inju-
ries. By using this vessel, we
hope to. bring those numbers
down in the future."
Brantly said the public won't
be seeing the new boat on the wa-
ter until it has been tested thor-
oughly. The boat was on display
at the Miami International Boat
Show last week.

Each year, the St. Joseph Bay Chapter Daughters of the Ameri-
can Revolution sponsors an essay contest in commemoration Ameri-
can History Month. This year the topic students had to elaborate on
was "My Favorite American Patriot". Each week for the next four
weeks a prize-winning essay will be featured.

A Capitol Banner
Jimmy Johnson, 106 Sunset Circle has a flag flying in his
back yard which is probably unique to Port St. Joe.
Jimmy has a flag flying every day which flew over the U.S.
Capitol building on January 20, the day of President Bush's inau-
guration.. Several flags in the' Port'St. Joe area have flown over
the U.S. Capitol on occasion, but there probably aren't many lying
or flying around here which occupied the Capitol flagpole while a
president was being inaugurated. .
Jtmnmy.received the flag front arrangements made by Senator
Bob Graham, who was aided in his endeavor by his assistant,
Becky Hendrix. daughter of.Dr. and Mrs., Wayne Hendrix of Port
St. Joe.

Joshua Holzhausen of Faith
Christian School was the eighth
grade winner of the DAR essay
contest. Following is his essay:
My Favorite Patriot of the
American Revolution
Patrick Henry was born in
Hanover County, Virginia, in
1736 and died in 1799. Rich-
mond, Virginia, is today very
proud of Patrick Henry. If you go
to visit Richmond you can visit
the church where he worshipped.
You can also see places where he
made some of his famous speech-
es.
As a boy he was not interest-
ed in school. As soon as he was
old enough, he went to work. At
first he tried keeping store, but
he was not very successful at it.
Next, after his attempt at shop-
keeping, he decided to try his
hand at farming. He soon
learned, however, that this was
not what he was meant to do. Af-
ter this endeavor he decided to
study lay. He found he like it so
much and was so good at it that
he became a lawyer in a very
short time.
Patrick Henry was a trial law-
yer for a long time. After a couple
of years, he decided to run for the
state legislature. He wanted to
convince the Colonies to break
away from the British. He wanted,
to serve in public office in order
to help accomplish this goal.
Once the people of Virginia had a
chance to hear him speak and
understand his ideas, he was
elected to several terms in the
state legislature. During his
terms in the state legislature, he
made many important speeches
urging the colonies to break away
from the British. He was such a
powerful speaker, and his ideas
were so forceful and important to
the colonists his fame and popu-
larity spread throughout the Col-
onies. He was so popular in Vir-
ginia that he was elected
governor.
Patrick Henry will always be
remembered as a great statesman
and orator. He made many contri-
butions to the emerging new
country. In the same year that he
became Governor of Virginia, he
carried the vote of the Virginia
convention for independence
which helped form the original 13
'states. "Patrick Henry was' also a
delegate to' the First Continental
Congress. The First Continental
Congress met in Philadelphia in
1774. Patrick Henry delivered the
first speech in that assembly. He
was well respected in the state of
Virginia. He was re-elected gov-
ernor four times.
In 1776, while Patrick Henry
was governor of Virginia, he
formed special mission troops of
six thousand men to go to the
front line and fight in the battle
against the British. He was jeal-
ous of the officers because they
could participate in fighting the
war and he was unable to. He
had long dreamed of commanding
.his own troops. As Governor of
Virginia he was able to amass
those special troops.

FHP Holding
Inspection of
Driver Licenses
The Florida Highway Patrol
will be conducting Driver License
and Vehicle Inspection Check-
points during the week of Febru-
ary 24 thru March 2 on SR-22,
SR-71, SR-30 and CR-386 in Gulf
County.
Recognizing the danger pre-
sented to the public by defective
vehicle equipment, troopers will
concentrate their efforts on vehi-
cles being operated with defects
such as bad brakes, worn tires
and defective lighting equipment.
For addition, attention will be di-
rected to drivers who would vio-
late the driver license laws of
Florida.
The Patrol has found these
checkpoints to be an effective
means of enforcing the equipment
and driver license laws of Florida
while insuring the protection of
all motorists.

While urging the Colonies to
fight for freedom from England's
rule, he made one of his most fa-
mous speeches. During this
speech Patrick Henry shouted,
"But as for me, give me liberty or
give me death." Not long after this
speech the Colonies became a
free country.
On every list of great Ameri-
can patriots you will find the
name Patrick Henry. He took an
important interest in the new
country he helped found. His
most important contribution to
the new Constitution was the first
ten amendments. These ten
amendments are known as the
Bill of Rights. The Bill of Rights
guarantee certain rights to the
people, such as freedom of
speech, the right of assembly,
and freedom to worship however
they please.
In 1795 Patrick Henry was of-
fered the Secretaryship of State
by President Washington, but he
declined. He had retired from
public life in 1791 to return to
his law practice in Virginia. Pat-
rick Henry died in the year of
1799.

If a diabetic


can get used to


daily injections.


he can get used


to anything.


Except


blindness.


Diabetes is America's
number-one cause of
blindness for adults
under the age of 75.
This year 5,000 diabetics will
surrender their vision to the disease.
50,000 others already have.
Diabetic blindness may give no
early warning signs. By the time you
notice blurred vision, diabetic eye
disease is often very advanced.


Free Diabetic Eye
Screening
Dr. Ron Jacobs offers you a
free diabetic eye screening. All you
have to do is call us today in
Panama City at (904) 769-5970.
To many diabetics, the disease
is like a black cloud they wish
would go away. But it won't. So
please call us today. Because the
alternative may be darker still.
