Commission Joins Those

Drafting Resolution in Favor


A hose left running over a redbud tree caused this beauti-
ful ice sculpture Friday morning. The roblnr-pem-hed .~-pthe

sons.


Plenty of Ice

But No Snow Stuck Around Too Long
After nearly two months of spring-like weather where
the mercury kept on the high side of 70 except at night,
winter came along with a rush last Thursday and Friday,
with temperatures dipping below the freezing mark for the
first time this year. Even with the rest of the nation gripped
in a refrigerator like atmosphere, even the trees and bushes
were fooled here in the Panhandle and had started flower-
ing out and turning a bright spring green prior to the turn
in the season Thursday.
According to our official source of the unofficial temper-
atures, the city's Wastewater Treatment Plant, the ther-
mometer dropped to a low of 25 degrees last Thursday-the
lowest temperature reading for Port St. Joe since the frigid
winters of 1986 and 1987, when hard freezes demolished
water pipes, and camellias.
Along with the cold weather moving in Thursday came
some snow flurries which flustered and flabbergasted near-
ly everyone who saw them.
Here in Port St. Joe, just a few random flakes fell, since
it was mostly sunny all day Thursday here in town. But in
the White City, Beaches and Indian Pass areas, the snow
was almost blinding for about 20 minutes, and then it was
all over.
At 8:40, Mary Helen Moore called The Star, advising us
it was snowing in White City. Later in the day, other reports
advised of heavy snow at St. Joe Beach, Overstreet and

The Gulf County Commission
added their voice to the growing
number of officials endorsing
Spaceport Florida plans for Gulf
county.
Tuesday night, the Commis-
sion unanimously approved of a
resolution supporting the loca-
tion of the state's new entry into
the space program on St. Joseph
Peninsula.
The Commission has followed
the lead of the Port St. Joe City
Commission, which passed the
same resolution last week, at the
urging of Chamber of Commerce
president, Mike McDonald.
McDonald also made the request
to the County Board Tuesday.
The Spaceport, a new concept
for Florida, is to be located on a
portion of the Vitro tracking sta-
tion property on the Peninsula.
REJECT GIFT
The County Commission de-
cided to officially reject a gift from
the Department of Transportation,
of the Overstreet Road Tuesday
night, after it was learned the
state department was preparing
to pass the road on to the county
for ownership. In this case, own-
ership means the county gets to
pay for the maintenance of the 20
mile road which connects state
highway 71, just south of Wewa-
hitchka with U.S. Highway 98 at
the Gulf-Bay county line.
The DOT tried to give Gulf
county ownership of the road a
few years ago, but delayed the
transfer until the new high-rise
bridge over the Intracoastal Ca-
nal at Overstreet was built, and
the road re-surfaced.
The county is rejecting the
gift, saying Gulf is not financially
able .to pay for the road's upkeep.
"DOT spokeesrfen say then chair-
man Eldridge Money signed an
agreement five years ago, stating
the county is now able to main-
tain the road.
Commission chairman Doug
Birmingham voiced the unani-
mous opinion of the Board Tues-
day night, saying the county is
unable to accept the road due to
budget problems. "If, indeed, the
agreement was signed, it was
only because it was the only way
we would get the bridge and the
resurfacing," Birmingham said.
DOT rebuts the argument,
claiming the county is not utiliz-
ing all forms of revenue available
to them for financing its road
program.
DOT seems determined to
give Gulf county the road and
Gulf county seems just as deter-
mined not to accept it. Only time
will tell who is the more deter-
mined.
Several years ago, the DOT
turned over ownership of SR 22
between Wewahitchka and Bay
county to county ownership, but
just recently took back responsi-
bility for the road, relieving the
county of this responsibility.
HIRE MANUEL
County Building Inspector,
Dewayne Manuel, advised the
Commission Tuesday night they
would need to contribute some
$600 to $900 to the department
to pay the February bills. '"We are
broke," Manuel said.
The building supervisor had


warned the Commission two
months ago his department was
going broke due to a construction
slow-down. The building inspec-
tion department has been self-
supporting with Manuel being a
contract building inspector, rath-
er than a county employee.
Commissioner Jimmy Gort-
man suggested at the first meet-
ing in February that the county
employ Manuel, utilizing his tal-
ents in other areas of the county
operation, as well as building in-
spector. Gortman suggested the
county abolish the building de-
partment operation as it has
been structured.
Tuesday night, Gortman's
suggestion was taken up again,
N with Gortman explaining Manuel
can save the county the expense
of a project inspector for a Class
Ill landfill they are planning to
build in the north Gulf county
area.
Gortman suggested, a pay
scale of $19,966 for Manuel, plus
17t per mile of travel.
Mrs. Jean Arnold objected to
Manuel being appointed building
inspector, claiming he caused her

Spaceport Officials


Conferring With


Commission Today

Officials of Spaceport Florida will be meeting with the Gulf
County Commission today to fully explain the proposed opera-
tion and the expected impact, if any, it will have on residents
in the proposed launch site area.
Dr. Chris Shove. Director of the Office of Space Programs is
to lead the state delegation here this afternoon in a 2:00 p.m..
meeting in the Board Room at the Gulf County Courthouse.
Dr. Shove and his assistants will be giving first-hand infor-
mation to clear up any false concepts which might have result-
ed from the surprise announcement, two weeks ago, of a tract
of Gulf-front property on St. Joseph Peninsula, being selected
as one of several sites in Florida's new Spaceport venture.
The new entry into the space program is to provide launch
and experimental sites for application of the space program to
industrial and educational uses.
There were some fears, locally, the installation might In-
clude danger from stored fuel, rocket blasts or excess noise for
the launch operations.
Dr. Shove and his department say this isn't a valid fear and
will spend his time in Port St. Joe this afternoon explaining
just what the community can expect when Spaceport Florida
opens up operations on the Eglin Air Force Base property on
the Peninsula.
Since the area is also close to Apalachicola, Dr. Shove was
in Apalachicola this morning, going through the same presenta-
tion.

Gulf County Health Department Director Myrtice Dean chats with Dr. Robert Morgan, primary
health care physician, Jim McKnight, Wewahitchka Clinic director, and Louise Beard, health de-
partment nurse, at open house here in Port St. Joe Friday.


Primary Health Care Starts Operation


Gulf county's public health department opened
its new expanded facilities here in Port St. Joe last
Friday afternoon, with a reception and open house.
The new addition to the Albert Ward Health
Center, will be housing the new state primary
health care operation which is now operating in
Gulf county, providing primary care for those una-
ble to pay and charging on a sliding scale those
who are capable of paying all or part of their medi-
cal expense.
The new addition which has been added to the
rear of the health unit here in Port St. Joe mainly
houses environmental health activities and admin-
istration offices. The health department building


was remodeled to provide examination rooms, an
x-ray room, waiting rooms and records depart-
ments, as well as a small laboratory.
All of the new and renovation construction was
paid for with a grant from the state of Florida. Its
operation will be a part of the Gulf County Health
Department program.
Dr. Robert Morgan has been contracted to pro-
vide medical treatment at the new health care unit.
Dr. Morgan is already in Gulf county and has the
clinic open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m.,
to 5:00 p.m.
Dr. Morgan will serve as the county's health
doctor, as well as the primary care physician.


Gulf County's Comprehensive Plan Will Mandate Growth Control


Describing wetlands as the
"kidneys of the nation", Gulf
county administrative assistant,
Larry Wells outlined special prob-
lems being faced by the commit-
tee preparing the county's state-
mandated comprehensive plan in
an address to the annual meeting
of the .St. Joseph Historical Socie-
ty last Thursday night.
Wells said that after three
years of closely examining Gulf
county, the committee had de-
clared that fully 25% of the
county can be classified as wet-
lands, falling into the "kidney"
category.
Kidneys, of course, strain im-
purities out of the human body
and are vital to continued life.
Wells said it was no accident the
wetlands of the nation are de-
scribed as kidneys.
Describing Gulf county, also,
as a portion of the state which


has "only a'slight tolerance for
growth", Wells said we have
three choices for the future. '"We
can destroy the natural order of
things with uncontrolled growth;
we can all clear out and leave the
shoreline to nature, or we can
manage growth in a way to be
compatible to both nature and
man. The plan being worked on
would accomplish the latter," he
pointed out.
A STATEWIDE HAPPENING
Wells pointed out that the
comprehensive plan wasn't just a
local set of rules and land use de-
cisions. "This is a statewide pro-
gram, which has been going on
since 1985, when the Legislature
mandated its need," Wells said.
The Gulf county plan must
dovetail with the district plan,
which must fit in with the state
plan, which must fit all other


county and municipal plans all
over the state. Wells said munici-
palities in Gulf county were also
under mandate to come up with
plans, which must be compatible
with the county plan.
What do the plans do? They
require specific designations of
use of all land in the county.
They project the needs for roads
and where they will be located.
They spell out which lands will be
used for recreation, agriculture,
industry, dwellings, wetlands,
etc. The properties can be used
only for those designations ap-
plied to it, but it is possible to get
the designation changed after
public hearings.
The plan must address avail-
able and possible needed sup-
plies of water, electric power,
sewage treatment facilities, solid
waste handling and disposal,
groundwater supplies and useage


rates. In short, there are 6,000
people moving Into Florida each
and every week and the state
wants a handle on whether or not
the state can support them and
where.
SOME PARTS FRAGILE
"Some parts of the state can-
not support growth," Wells
said."We may have to live with
the fact that some areas of Gulf
county may not be able to sup-
port development," he said.
'The plan is to have require-
ments designed to guarantee that
growth doesn't exceed the capaci-
ty of an area to accept it," Wells
pointed out.
Gulf county's plan is being
hammered out by a committee of
local citizens, including large and
small land owners, represepta-
tives of the Apalachee Planning
Council and the expertise of Bas-


kerville-Donovan Engineers. The
expense of coming up with the
plan is being borne by the state
of Florida.
And, that expense isn't pea-
nuts! Gulf county's plan expense,
alone, has already run well over
$50,000 and the document still is
just about 80% complete.
Wells said one of the results
of the plan, state-wide, once it is
finished is that the state of Flori-
da will find it is in deep financial
trouble because of its require-
mnents of the plan. "Gulf county
will more than likely be in deep
financial trouble right along with
the state." he said.
VERY COMPLICATED
The administrative assistant
said the plan is a very compli-
cated document, but is not a
unique requirement of Gulf
county. Plans have been made in


the past-twice since the early
1970's-but have largely been
what local interests wanted for
their county. 'This one has spe-
cific guidelines and goals. it is al-
ready over 500 pages long, where
past plans have only been slight-
ly more than 100 pages. We still
have a way to go, too," he point-
ed out.
Gulf county's version of its
plan is scheduled to be complet-
ed this year. Wells said the docu-
ment would have considerable
impact on Gulf county and its cit-
izens. He stressed that if it does
not meet state requirements, the
local planning committee could
be sent right back to square one
to do it over again. So. in reality,
the local committee is doing a
balancing act: trying to satisfy
state requirements and still keep
as much local control over the
county's future as possible.
















Editorials and Comments


THE STAR
PAGE TWO THURSDAY, MARCH 2, 1989


Not So Fast,



Fellas!

We're pleased the County Commissioners took the step they
did two weeks ago, taking an official position on the dredging of
a channel opening into St Joseph's Bay. We didn't necessarily
approve of of the decision they made, but we whole-heartedly
approve of their doing it.
It has been quite a time since the County Commission took
no-nonsense concrete steps without leaving a gate of backing
down open. Firm stands are called for at times, and some past
Commissions [if not some individual commissioners] have been
reluctant to take a firm and concrete stand; particularly, if it
may prove to be slightly politically unpopular.
The only reason we take issue with the subject of their deci-
sion, again isn't what they decided, but the manner it was de-
cided upon.
In a recent meeting of the Apalachee Planning Commission,
the APC committee stated the local Commission had asked that
they delay any decision, and ask the Corps of Engineers to de-
lay any decision in the matter, until a public hearing could be
held.
The APC agreed to this, even though their membership
seemed heavily weighted to reach the same decision the County
Commission arrived at for their approved resolution two weeks
ago.
The Corps of Engineers agreed to delay their decision until
the county could hold a public hearing to see what the people
thought about the matter. Even though their representative an-
nounced such input would not make their decision for them,
they agreed to wait for the county to hold the public hearing.
Everyone waited for the county to hold its public hearing
except the county. While everyone else is waiting for a public
hearing, the Commission made a decision. Regardless of
whether a person favors or opposes the dredging permit, the
impression given was that a public hearing would be held.
We think it only fair that both sides be allowed input to this
important matter and that they be given ample notice of when
the hearing will be held, if there is public understanding such a
hearing is to be held. Certainly, the APC committee hearing
was unfair for both sides. There was no advance notice to allow
either side to marshall its forces or be properly prepared to
argue such' an important and complex subject.
Had there been no mention of public hearings, we would
stand four-square behind the Commission's decision, whether
or not we agreed with it. But, since the understanding was
there would be a hearing, there should be a hearing.



Talking Religion
Salman Rushdte is hiding because of a senile old man in
-Iran who has put a price on his headamaking him an open tar--:
:,get for every greedy or creepy individual in the world. ,:,.*
Rushdie is the author of the Infamous Satanic Letters,.
which we have not and most likely will never read. Even the ti-
tle is enough to make us turn the other way should we see it on
a book shelf.
We'll wager the Ayatollah hasn't read it either, but he's still
willing to put a sizeable price on the head of the author, be-
cause of the book's imagined contents.,
Rushdie is said to have written a book which says some un-
kind or untrue things about the Islam religion.. If the. leader of
the Islam can put a price on an author's head for saying some
untrue things about the religion, maybe Rushdie could have
caused just as great a sensation by writing the truth about his
subject. Any religious personality who would put a price on
the head of a human being is close enough to being like Satan
to qualify for a place of distinction in a book with a title like Sa-
tanic Letters.
Someone suggested the other day that we start a campaign
to raise funds to put out a contract on Khomeini and see how
hard it would to get up a few millions for that worthy cause.
But, such a move would put, us on his level, wouldn't it? We
wouldn't relish being anything at all like the Ayotollah.
In the meantime, maybe Salman Rushdie and the Ayatollah
will get together over a cup of tea and talk religion. Wouldn't
that be some conversation!


I Hunker Down with Kes


Raiders of the Lost Barn


Let me get this straight from
the start I don't know much
about one arm "Lucky" Jack.
Sure. I ve heard all the stories. I
read the newspaper accounts of
the murders. I know he's hiding
out somewhere in the Smoky
Mountains. And, I know that near
bout everyone that's caught up
with "Lucky" Jack didn't live to
tell about it.
Shucks, I'm not even real


sure how he lost his arm. Some
say the young people, tired of los-
ing their friends, followed him to
the murder barn one night and
Jumped him when he came out to
howl. The kids, swinging an ax at
his head, missed, but got his arm
way up near the shoulder. Of
course, others say he got his arm
caught in Wayne's saw mill over
near Maryville. Most agree that a
bear chewed off one of his ears,

and I'm not sure how he got that
split nose. He limps from an old
knife wound, he has a thin mus-
tache and one eye that keeps
looking off to the side even when
his head was a'facing you.


ETAO/N SHRDLU


BY: WESLEY R. RAMSEY


Ain't Science and Friends Wonderful When You Need Them?


SCIENCE HAS TRIUMPHED
once more, giving support to the
old saw that the thinkers are the
movers of the earth.
Remember back a few
months ago when I told you of
Ferrell Allen's pine cone tool? Re-
member how disappointed I was
when I discovered it was only a
coat hanger bent and shaped into
a pine cone retrieving tool? I
thought the world deserved better
of Ferrell than a bent coat hang-
er.
Ever since that time, I have
been testing the durability of my
back and the back of my wife in
picking up pine cones.
And for my neighbors, read-
ing this, who scoff, "The only one
I ever see picking up pine cones
in your yard is Frenchiel" let me
be quick to correct those laboring
under false pretenses.


I pick them up. too. It's just
that Frenchie won't let me pick
them up on a regular basis be-
cause she wants to hand pick
them and save, the unusual
cones, the large ones, the small
ones and cull the ordinary ones,
placing them in the fireplace kin-
dling pile.
Sometimes, she will throw
pine cones away and when she is
in a throwing away mood, I get to
pick them up.
Notice I said, "I get to!" Just
like I enjoyed picking up pine
cones.
PICKING UP PINE cones this
year has been a never-ending
task. I believe every limb tip on
each one of the considerable
number of pine trees in our yard,
has hatched, ripened, shed and
replenished itself some half dozen
times this year.
Pine cones are in no short
supply at Ramsey Manor this


year. If you should happen to
want a few for whatever purpose,
we have them at our house.
Even the squirrels have eaten
so many pine cones they won't
eat another
The things are piling up in
every undisturbed portion of the
yard.
The other day, I got home,
noticed a proliferation of pine
cones right around the carport
entrance and got a five gallon
bucket to pick them up.
I picked, and I picked until I
had three buckets full in about a
20 foot radius of the carport en-
trance.
I felt right proud of my pen-
chant for neatness until the next
morning, when I stepped out on
the front porch to get the morn-
ing paper. There was Frenchie,
in front of the carport, picking up
pine cones.
I asked, "What are you doing
that for? I just picked them up


late yesterday afternoon"
"'Well, I Just picked up a
bucket full already this morning,
tool" she shot back, sounding a
little like it was my fault the
cones had fallen.
We now have pine cones
stashed in buckets, boxes, sacks
and in the wheel barrows, waiting
for cold weather to come along so
we can start fires with our stash.

I THOUGHT OF OLD Ferrell
the other day while I was picking
up a batch of pine cones and fig-
ured he was having a fun time
picking up his cones with his
cone tool, even though it was a
simplistic, crude invention by a
graduate engineer.
Here I am, ignorant in the
ways of engineering and a gradu-
ate of nothing, but I now have a
genuine, patented, tooled pine
cone picking up tool, the likes of
which Ferrell has never seen.


I mean I1I I have a genuine
patented pine cone retrieving tool
and it works, too. There Is no
stoop, no strain. All it takes is a
sqeeze of the hand, a bending of
the arm at the elbow, a relaxing
of the hand and your pesky, for-
merly irritating pine cone is safe-
ly inside a bucket, awaiting dis-
posal.
Removing my pine cones is
now a scientic maneuver with
only a slight risk of injury either
to the pine cone or the remover.

WHAT BROUGHT ALL this
change about in the way I remove
pine cones? What set off the in-
dustrial revolution in my back
yard in pine cone removal? As a
matter of fact, I had nothing to do
with it at all. It all came about
because of a gift I received the
other day.
Ferrell didn't make me one of
his contraptions. So far as I


know. Ferrell knows nothing
about the particular gadget
which now moves my cones to
the pine cone pile.
Charley Davis came by the of-
fice the other day and said, '"Wes,
I see you are doddering about a
little more than usual, so I decid-
ed to make life a little easier for
you. Maybe this little gadget will
make you last longer!"
Charley handed over a long
slender stick with.a pincher on
one end and a \ handle ,on the
bther. You squeeze the handle
and the pinchers close, picking
up whatever is caught inside.
I appreciate Charley's
thoughtfulness. The gadget really
works, so I'll never have to stoop
down and pick up another pine
cone.
That's what friends are for: to
bring you gadgets to perform
tasteless tasks so you can dodder
longer!

"Lucky" Jack was bad to the
bone.
His real name was Jock
LaBow he just thought he was
French. Some say he came from
Louisiana, where he was once
married to that girl Bobby Bare
sings about named Marie.
You can imagine my shock
when a friend asked if I'd help
take a group of 13-15 year old
boys from our church to look for
one arm Jack.
'You idiot, what will you tell
the parents?"
"We'll tell them we're going to
the mountains to look at the
snow."
"The snow? It's not snowing
in the mountains. It hasn't
snowed up there in. "
Too late, he was already call-
ing the parents.
I whispered to this chief idiot
three weeks later as the boys
loaded into the church van, 'You
know that one arm Jack eats 13-
15 year olds for breakfast."
"I know, we're going to use
them for bait."
He didn't get to be chief idiot
for nothing. So last week, the
chief, 12 kids and three sub-
idiots took off for the mountains
in search of one arm "Lucky"
Jack.
I'll say this for the young
men, they were ,eager. Woody
said, even before we got to Atlan-
ta, that when we caught up to ole
Jack we'd "pull his good arm off."
We were still in North Georgia
when the snow started. We
stopped for gas and Tin-grin,
Ghandi, Cabbage and Pooky had
a snowball fight going before I got
off the van. As we eased into Ten-
nessee with the snow coming
down in near semi-blizzard pro-
portions Bubba leaned over the
seat and shouted into my right
ear, "Mr. Kesley, isn't this the
stuff that you used to walk 10
miles through everyday to get to
school?
We got to the cabin way after
midnight and tried to settle in.
Bellows and Little Bit asked
about playing in the snow. Gordy
Knothead, Buck and Chico want-
ed to go after one arm Jack im-
mediately. Half-pint went to
sleep.
Morning brought more snow.
And cold, let me tell you. I walked
up to the big house to warm up
and the weather guy on the Knox-
ville Station said it, was 280. He
was nuts it was more like 8
below. Then I realized he was giv-
ing the temperature inside the
studio. It gets cold in those
mountains. The anchor lady
wasn't "anchored" to the desk -
she was froze to it. Her lips
turned blue and near bout
stopped moving while she was
telling us about John Tower. As
they faded to commercial I heard
her say, "Somebody get me some-
thing to drink!"
Back down at the cabin we
were snowed in. I was freezing.
The kids decided in order to be
ready for one arm Jack they
needed to acclimate themselves
with the snow. And boy howdy,
they did. They slid in it, they
threw it, they ate it, they crawled
in it, they poured it down each
others' backs. They got familiar
with snow, believe me. It was a
terrible Job, but one they had to

Small Town News
Let's face it folks, we live in a small town and I, for one, am
proud of it.
News travels fast in a small town, but usually that's as far
as it goes.
Many of you, like myself, have family and friends that reside
out of town and, if you are like me, you sometimes forget to
bring them up-to-date on the latest happenings in our town.
When we moved away a few years ago, we tried our best to
keep up with the news by reading The Star and calling friends
from time to time, but we still missed much of the "tidbits" that
we wanted to know about.
If I had the time and money I would start a paper just for
those of you who live out of town. I might call it, "The Whisper''
and it would be full of all the things you want to know but forgot
to ask about.
Here are some news items that you who live in distant cities
might read about if I were editor of 'The Whisper" and you sub-
scribed to my paper.
Port St. Joe:
Joe and "you-know-who" are seeing each other again. They
broke up for quite some time after 'you-know-who" caught Joe
at "you-know-where" having a drink with, "guess who?" Rumor
has it that Joe and 'Y-K-W" will be married this spring.
R.H. wrecked his new car last Saturday night. Some people
think he was drinking but that ain't true! I know he wasn't
drinking because his momma told me, "It's a bald-faced lie,
Shad. He's never drank a drop in his life." She should have said,
"He never dropped a drink in his life!"
M.T. and G.T. are getting a divorce. It's a shame because
everyone said it wouldn't work when they ran away to Alabama
and were married. Come March 22nd, they would have celebrat-
ed their Golden Wedding Anniversary, She should have joined
that nudist club with himl
The O'Kent's house guest finally left. John was beginning
to think they had moved in for good. He finally decided to take
action. One day while they were at the beach and he was at
work, he came home, packed all their clothes, put their clothes,
put their suitcases on the front porch and changed all the locks
on the doors. He's going to miss his brother-in-law and his fami-
ly.
Rumor has it that someone wants to build a marina on
Cape San Bias. To do this, they tell me, he must dredge a canal
into the bayside of the Cape. Some us want him to proceed and
some of us don't. Although it would probably mean several thou-
sand dollars to me and determine If my family eats or not, I
don't know if I'm "fer" it or aginn" it.
The "fastest mouth in the South" is at it again! He's still
running his mouth about everyone, including C.W. Someone
said C.W. may not be able to stop him but he's going to have
him talking through fat lips if he keeps it up.
Well, that's about all the news from here for now. Oh, by the
way, L.D.P. started smoking again. He never quit drinking, gam-
bling, chasing women or telling jokes. One day its all going to
kill him.
He'll be 87 next Saturday!

to the Editor

Disagrees Wit
Grant's Change
Dear Editor:
Congressman Bill Grant's
turncoat defection to the Republi-
can Party goes to show the quali-
ty of Republican Party leaders
when they welcomed this snake
in the grass with open arms.
This lackluster Republican
has been waiting until the elec-
tion was over before springing
this deceitful act upon the public,
Had Dukakis won, he surely
would have remained a Demo-
crat.
If he has any honor left, he
should resign. If not, he should
be impeached.
Where do I sign?

At noon, Jim McNeill of Indian Pass said it had snowed
on him, coming to town, so heavy it was sticking to the
windshielf of his vehicle.
Tony Nolli, a visitor to Port St. Joe Thursday, from
Prince Edward Province in Canada, was asked, with tongue
in cheek, if he had come to Florida to get warm. "It's a lot
warmer than 57 degrees below zero! By comparison, it feels
real warm here." he said.
It was still below freezing at mid-morning, but by noon,
temperatures had begun to rise, but never topped 40 de-
grees, all day long.

.Shown left to right are the new officers of the St. Joseph Historical Society, Miss Netta Niblack, Mrs. Leonard Belin, Mrs.
Tom Gibson, and Mrs. Charles Clardy. '


Project Undertaken in Moving

Old Lighthouse Keepers' Homes


Mrs. Charles Clardy became
the new president of the St. Jo-
seph Historical Society Thursday
night of last. week, at the annual
meeting of the Society.
Mrs. Clardy, who was in
charge of the recent Sesquicen-
tennial celebration, will lead the
small but energetic group of peo-
ple who have the goal of preserv-
ing and making others aware of
the important place of Port St.
Joe in the history of Florida and
the Urnted States.
Retiring president, Mrs.
James T.. McNeill remarked, "I


was appalled to find out during
my tenure in office that there are
people who have lived here a long
time, but still didn't know that
the first Constitution for the new
state of Florida was drawn up
and signed right here in Port St.
Joe."
Mrs. Clardy will be joined by
Mrs. Tom Gibson as vice-
president, Mrs. Leonard Belin as
treasurer and Miss Netta Niblack
as secretary.
Mrs. McNeill referred to the
Sesquicentennial celebration as
the hallmark of the Society's ac-


tivity during the past year, deter-
mining the observance as an un-
equalled success. "
Mrs. Clardy outlined two pro-
jects as the Society's main inter-
est for the coming year. She said
one of the main projects to be un-
dertaken will be to move the two
old former lighthouse keepers
homes near the abandoned Coast
Guard station lighthouse to new
locations on or near the Gulf '
county Courthouse. The two r
dwellings were home to light-,",
house keepers on the Cape prior
to the turn of the century.
Another project for the new
year is to have a book published
containing the writings of local
historians the late Charles Smith
and Louise Porter.
The new officers were in- :
stalled by Mrs. Charles Brown, a ,
long-time member of the Histori--
cal Society and mother of Mrs. 8:
Clardy.

trance on Cape San Blas.
The owners, Joe and Pat Cap-
uano formerly of Toms River, New
Jersey, have brought their Italian
cooking to our area.
Some of their specials include
Eggplant Parmigiana, Shrimp and

Long Avenue
Doing Survey
Long Avenue Baptist Church
will be conducting a community
survey this weekend. On Satur-
day morning and Sunday after-
noon, there will be many people
visiting homes around town to
gain information about church
membership of the families here
in town. The time needed to take
the information will be very brief,
and cooperation from the folks
here in St. Joe will be greatly ap-
preciated.
This survey is being done in
cooperation with the St. Joe Mini-
sterial Association and the infor-
mation, gained will be made avail-
able to other churches in the St.
Joe area.


with a tomato sauce. Also includ-
ed are the old favorites, spaghetti
with meatballs and Italian sau-
sage with peppers and onions.
The dell will include fresh
cold cuts. Sandwiches will be pre-
pared to your order and the cafe
will offer both hot and cold sub
sandwiches. Fresh baked bread
will be used daily. All food items
including the dinners will be
package for takeout, and a cater-
ing service will be offered.
Cape Cafe is proud of their
pizza. The Capuano's were able to
find an "old time" pizza oven with
a stone base. The stone makes
the pizza crust firm and crispy
the way it used to be. Only the
freshest ingredients are used in
their pizza, and pizza will be sold
by the slice in addition to a whole
pie.
The Cape Cafe is comfortable
and inviting. The mood is very in-
formal and casual. They have a
dining area with seating for about
30 and a pleasant screened room
to enjoy your dinner while relax-
ing.
The Cape Cafe will be open in
the early Spring and Joe and Pat
ask that you stop in and say hi.

THE STAR. PORT ST. JOE. FL THURSDAY. MAR. 2. 1989 PAGE 7A


AN OPEN LETTER TO THE VOTERS OF


THE 2nd CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT


BILL GRANT ".. lhe betrayed the voters who gave him the
opportunity to sen'e.
Tallahassee Democrat
February 22. 1989













FLORIDA DEMOCRATIC PARTY
Dear Voter:
Many people were shocked this past week when Congressman Bill Grant changed political parties.
Clearly, as a matter of conscience and philosophy, it is Bill Grant's right to belong to the party
of his choice. But the timing of his announcement suggests that his motie was not conscience but
ambition ambition realized at the expense of his constituents.
CONSIDER THESE EVENTS:
Last summer Bill Grant asked Democratic Party leaders to make him a delegate to the
Democratic National Convention, a post to which he was ultimately elected. As a delegate,
Grant cast his vote for Dukakis on the floor of the convention. At the time Dukakis was 17
points ahead in the polls and projected to be the next President of the United States.
At a rally in Jacksonville later that summer. Bill Grant stood shoulder to shoulder with
Governor Dukakis, expressing his unwavering enthusiasm and support. At the time,
Dukakis was ahead in the polls.
i Bill Grant's support of Dukakis began to slip late last summer at the same time Dukakis
began to slip in the polls. He attended no more Dukakis events. His enthusiastic support
turns into silence.
Late last year Bill Grant contacted me to suggest that I convene a meeting to discuss the
Democratic Party 's future in Florida. A meeting of Florida's Democratic Congressional
Delegation was scheduled for Feb. 8 two weeks before Bill Grant switched party
Saffiliation. Important political strategy' was discussed. Bill Grant attended.
l More recently, Bill Grant calls on his Florida Democratic colleagues in Congress to go to
bat for him and help hint secure a leadership position in Congress. They did, and he was
named to a Democratic leadership position that would have benefited his constituents in
the Second Congressional District. Instead, he switched party affiliation and cost his
constituents that opportunity.
At a Tallahassee press conference, when asked if he would have changed party affiliation if
George Bush had not been elected President, Bill Grant said he didn't knot'w.
Three months ago, Bill Grant ran as a Democrat. He asked for your vote as a Democrat. He
promised to serve you as a Democrat. And he won re-election to a two-year term as a Democrat,
He deceived you.
Bill Grant told his colleagues in Washington that he wanted to be part of the Democratic
leadership team to better represent you. He deceived his colleagues.
Bill Grant told me he had an interest in the future of the Democratic Party' in Florida and
attended a confidential meeting to discuss party' matters. Once again an act of deception.
Recently. I was reflected chairman of the Florida Democratic Party. I, like many of you, was
born and raised in North Florida. My politics are rooted in the Florida Democratic tradition -
a tradition that has served us well and produced our state's finest leaders. The Florida
Democratic Party is, has been, and will continue to be, a party of the mainstream. Many of you,
like me, have expressed concern about the direction of our national party) and its ability to elect
candidates to national office. Florida Democrats are committed to working to change that. That
S is the difference between political courage and political opportunism.
Bill Grant owes an apology to the voters of the Second Congressional District for pretending to
S be something he is not and seeking reelection under false circumstances. The voters of this
S District deserve better. IWhether the Second Congressional District is represented by a Democrat
Sor a Republican is not Bill Grant's choice to make. That is a choice for the voters to make. Bill
Grant should not have taken away your right to decide.
i Sincerely,


Charles Whitehead
I Chairman
Florida Democratic Party)

Sharks Open Season at Tallahassee


Sharks Fall Prey


to Blountstown


Even with Port St. Joe's three
top shooters scoring their usual
game, the Sharks still were elimi-
nated. from the basketball
playoffs in their first game of the
District Tournament Friday
night.
The Blountstown Tigers had
a fantastic first half to put the
Sharks away, 86-78 in the Ti-
ger's new gym.
The Sharks had their high av-
erage game, scoring in the high
70's, but the Tigers had an above
average game, for them, putting
the Sharks out of the playoffs.
The period which gave the Tigers
the edge, was the second, when
the Tigers scored 27 points while
the Sharks were putting up only
14.
The Sharks .lost the game at
the foul line, where they shot 12
of 27 points, an unusual perfor-
mance for the usual high average
foul' shooting team.
Willie Smith had 27 points
for the night, to pace the Sharks.


Eric Langston had 18 and Kevin
Cox 14. Langston, Smith and
Cox all had two three-pointers, so
the scoring part of the Shark
team was working; all except the
free throws.
The Tigers had four players
in double figures, led by Floyd
Williams with 27. Bob Everett
had 21, Jerome Davis 17 and
Marcus Gatlin 12.
The Sharks and Tigers had
played four games together this
season, with each winning two.
The Sharks ended the season
at 18-9.
Score by Quarters:
Port St. Joe 14 14 21 29-78
Blountstown 14 27 17 28-86
PSJ-Langston 8-1-18, 11-4-
27, Cox 5-2-14, Larry 2-2-26,
Quinn 3-1-7, Hamilton 1-2-4,
Pryor 1-0-2.
Blountstown-Davis 5-7-17,
Williams 13-1-27, Gatlin 3-6-12,
Snowden 1-0-2, Donaldson 3-2-
7, Everett 7-7-21, Granger 0-0-
0, Buggs 0-0-0.,


Twelve players will be return-
ing from last year's baseball team
as the Sharks open the 1989 sea-
son Saturday in a double-header
against Florida High in Tallahas-
see. Game time is 12:00 p.m.
Returning from last year's
squad and summer league action
will be seniors Kevin Cox and
Tim Davis; juniors Cris Revell, J.
J. Ray and Jim Anderson; sopho-
mores, Reginald Larry, Bill Ram-
sey, Matthew Taylor, Tyrone Ham-
ilton, Kyle Griffin and Bobby
Nobles and freshman Vince Addi-
son.
According to baseball coach,
Duane McFarland, "The players
this year have a better knowledge
of the game. Even though they
are still basically a young team,
they have played a lot of ball to-
gether through the summer pro-,
gram and the high school season
and it should begin to pay off
some this year."
"This year we hope to have a
four to five man pitching rotation
utilizing three sophomores, Ham-
ilton, Ramsey and Taylor, junior.
J;, J. Ray and senior Kevin Cox. It
will be a young staff and maturity
will be the key," according to
McFarland.
"We should be improved offen-
sively as we only lost two senior
starters off last year's team,"
McFarland added.
Defensively we will have Tim
Davis at second and Bill Ramsey
at shortstop, with this being their
third year of working together.
Cox will start at short when Ram-
sey is pitching.
Other positions will probably
be fielded with Nobles and Ray at
third, Revell and Griffin at first,
Larry at center field, Hamilton at
left field and Anderson at right
field. Taylor and Griffin will split
catching duties, as both have ex-
perience in the position, sharing
the post during summer play.
The Sharks will also be on the
road Tuesday of next week, trav-
elling to Bristol with game time at
4:00 EST.

St. Joe Jr.-Sr. High School are

Students Working Problems to Raise Money
Seventh and eighth graders at Port St. Joe
High School will be working problems for pay.
Each person will complete a Math Funbook
which has 200 problems. Pledges will be collect-
ed for each problem answered correctly. The
funds are to be donated to St. Jude Children's
Research Hospital.
St. Jude is a place where kids with cancer
can go to get better. In fact, it's the largest child-
hood cancer research hospital in the world. Only
the best doctors and researchers work at St.
Jude, and they have only one purpose, to make
these kids well. Kids don't like most hospitals,
but the children at St. Jude know that without
St. Jude, they might not have a chance. The doc-
tors and nurses at St. Jude are their friends.
Danny Thomas, the entertainer, founded St.
Jude in Memphis, Tennessee. He and his friends
knew that we needed it, so they began to tell
people about it and began collecting money to .
build it. lots of ordinary people like you and me .
made it.possible, and now we have to keep it go- V,
ing.
Sponsors are needed to make the project a
success. We need your help. From February
27th until March 12th Math-masters will be so-
liciting your support. Please, show that you care.
This is another SAVE Club fund raising pro- .
ject. We support existing charities. .

That's how many people. doctors
estimate, have glaucoma but don't
know it.

Glaucoma
A condition resulting from
elevated pressure in the eye,
glaucoma can cause complete loss
of vision if left untreated.
Unfortunately. glaucoma is more
common than you might think And
people with a family history of
glaucoma are at an even greater
risk. Glaucoma. like high blood
pressure, usually gives its victims no
warning until serious damage has
already occurred


The good news is that
glaucoma is usually treatable. There
is no reason to lose your eyesight
to glaucoma.

Toward Understanding


Are You Looking for Security?


As I was reading Genesis
:15:1-18 last week I came across
the words: "Fear not Abram, I am
your shield; your reward shall be
very great."
God spoke these words before
he had cut the covenant and be-
fore Abram had been given the
covenant name of Abraham.
Abram didn't quite believe
God. He wanted. more proof be-
fore he put his full trust in God's
word. Some of us are foolish
enough to trust in words without
evidence. That is why telephone
sales of everything from. religious
supplies to condominiums are so
successful. Abram was not about
to fall for any scam. He wanted


assurance that God was really
speaking to him.
If you will read the pertinent
verses you will see that the Lord
gave him concrete proof that he
was serious in his promise to give
Abram security.
Abram thought that he'twas
going to die without an heir. He
assumed that his faithful servant
Eliezer would take over after' his
death. To Abram this would mean
a real loss of security because his
posterity would be fruitless, and
his name would die out.
That may sound like foolish
male ego to our generation, but it
was very important,- to people in
Abram's day.

God promised Abram that he
would have a son and that his de-
scendants would surpass our
ability to number. Abram believed
God and it was this faith that
':nade him righteous.
The Bible exposes Abram's
human weaknesses. He is caught
in lies, treachery, indecision, and
bad' choices. It is clear that his
behavior did not make him right-
eous. His faith in God was his
salvation.
After demonstrating trust in
the Lord, God made his covenant.
Only then could God rename Ab-
ram and call him Abraham.
In the Hebrew language, Ab-
K rain means "The Exalted Father"
or, perhaps "The Father of Exalta-
tion." The implications of his
name, and his recorded behavior,
give us a picture of a proud per-
son who nevertheless can put his
faith In an invisible force. By con-
centrating on that force, he began
to communicate with his creator
(Gen. 12:1).
The name Abraham includes
a syllable from "Jehovah" and it
means 'The Father of a Multi-
tude." The implications of this
name and the record of history
show us that he was enabled, by
the power of the covenant, to
bring the faith he had established
with Jehovah to a multitude of
people. In this way he became the
source of the kind of faith all true
believers must possess.

We too can share the faith of
Father Abraham. We can concen-
trate on the unseen force of god.
This is most effective when we
read the Bible, especially the Gos-
pel accounts of the life of Jesus.
The intensity of our experience
with God is closely related to the
time we spend with him in Bible
reading, prayer, and Spirit direct-
ed service.
Abraham craved the kind of
relationship that God established
in the Old Covenant. He would
have exalted in the glory of an op-
portunity to communicate with
God as we now can through the
New Covenant.
If you are seeking more secur-
ity, as Abram was, why not try
his method? The God of Abraham
has revealed himself in holy
scripture. Read this revelation
and concentrate on Christ in
prayer. You will find that God will
communicate with you and ena-
ble you to put your faith to work
in virtuous thoughts and godly
deeds.
If you put your faith in Jesus,
the lord will give you more than a
syllable of his name. You will
have his whole name, you will be
"Christian."

diseased, or injured branches.
Once this is done it may be nec-
essary to thin out the .plant. Re-
move branches that cross each
other or they will obviously be-
come entangled. If the shrub still
looks too thick remove some of
the older branches. Remove any
branches that are distinctly dif-
ferent from the rest of the shrub.
Cut back excessively long growth
to a bud that is four to six inches
below the average branch length.


If you wish to reduce the size of
the shrub, cut back each branch
four to six Inches, to a new bud.
Do not use hedge shears, but cut
each branch separately. This will
provide a neat, informal shrub.
that retains its naturalistic
shape.

7o- Late winter and early spring
an- is the time to prune many shrubs
ly and small trees in the yard.
as Shrubs that bloom in summer
th and fall generally develop flowers
ily on current season's growth and
r's should be pruned before the-first
or flush of growth in the spring.
he Shrubs that bloom in the spring
.r- or winter should be pruned Im-
mediately after flowering has
finished. Pruning is practiced to
maintain plant health, control
plant growth, and encourage
flowering and fruiting. These ob-
jectives should be remembered as
you prune.
Pruning should encourage
plant health, not plant disease.
Therefore, it is important to
prune properly using the correct
tools. For general clean-up, hand
pruning shears- are used, loopers
may be used for branches up to
one inch, a pruning saw can be
used for larger branches and
hedge shears should be used to
trim closely clipped hedges only.
All tools should be kept sharp.
Sharp tools not only cut easier
but will not bruise the plant tis-
sue. Bruising the plant causes
slower healing of the wound and
causes an increase In the proba-
bility of disease.
A clean cut should be made.
This means the cut surface
should have a smooth surface not
a rough one that looks as if the
tissue has been torn or pulled.
Care should be taken not to in-
jure the plant around the cut, or
rip or tear the bark above or be-
low the cut. The cambium layer,
a thin layer of cells just below the
bark which Is Important in
wound healing, is easily injured.
Do not twist or turn the shears as
you cut because you will injure
the plant as well as your shears.
Painting the wounds with tree
wounds dressing has lately be-
come a controversial practice, the
standard recommendation has
been to pain all wounds over one
(1) inch in diameter with a quality
tree wounds dressing to protect
the cut surface from rotting or-
ganisms and checking (radial
cracking) upon drying. Some re-
search has shown that upon ex-
posure to the sun, the protective
coating often cracks, and mois-
ture enters the cracks and accu-
mulates in pockets that may oc-

Clipped hedges requires a
specialized type of pruning and
may become a continuous job
during the growing season. There
are two important factors to re-
member about clipped hedges,
the hedge should be clipped while
the new growth is green and suc-
culent. Also, the plant should be
,trimmed so that the base of the
hedge is wider than the top so
that light can reach the lower'
leaves.
. Unless a shrub is a topiary,
espalier, or part of a formal hedge
it should not be closely clipped
but allowed to develop into a nat-
uralistic form. This does not
mean that the plant should be
left alone, but that pruning is
done to enhance the natural
beauty of the plant. The first step
in pruning is to remove all dead,

Dar Winning Essays



The Troublemaker Who Made Us Free


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 three
weeks a prize-winning essay will be featured.


By Rachel Myers
Sam Adams was the leading
voice in Boston against the Brit-
ish. Sam became known as a
troublemaker to the British, and
he was behind most of the con-
flict in Boston before the war. His
unique way of contributing to the


American cause makes him my
favorite patriot.
Sam Adams was born in Bos-
ton, Massachusetts on September
17,1722. Early in life Sam
learned from his businessman fa-
ther that when a law is bad for
the people, they must do every-

thing in their power to fight it.
Sam was educated at Harvard
College and went to work in his
father's bravery after graduation.
But he spent a lot of his time at-
tacking the British with both the
spoken and written word.
Sam was a leader of a group
of Boston patriots called the
Whigs. He led the fight against
England's Writs of Assistance and
Stamp Act. The Stamp Act was
repealed in 1766. Sam was elect-
. ed to the Massachusetts House of
Representatives. After the Stamp
Act, Parliament taxed the colo-
nies with the Townshend Act in
1767. Same had a letter sent to
the colonies to tell them not to
buy the items on which there is a
tax. The other colonies respond
quickly. King George III tried to
stop colonies from joining forces
and he told the Massachusetts,,.
legislature that they could not
meet again. Sam was a fiery
speaker, and he wrote strong at-
tacks against the British in the
Gazette.
Governor Bernard felt safe
with thousands of British sol-
diers in Boston, so he allowed the
legislature to meet again. Sam
began his strongest campaign yet
against the British. He wrote sto-
ries about the British beating
children, insulting women, horse
racing, and gambling instead of,

attending church. The fiery sto-
ries stirred up the people. Ten-
sions between soldiers and citi-
zens grew worse in 1770 and
ended in the Boston Massacre.
Late in 1773, a group led by
Sam Adams dressed up like Indi-
ans, and dumped a boat load of
tea into Boston Harbor rather
than see the tea taxed.
In the fall of 1774, Sam Ad-
ams represented Massachusetts
at a meeting in Philadelphia to
decide what to do about the Brit-
ish. Sam had to be patient be-
cause many representatives
weren't ready to discuss indepen-
dence. By the next year Sam had
made the king's most wanted list
along with John Hancock. When
the British army marched out of
Boston to capture Adams and
Hancock, it was only Paul Re-
vere's swift ride that saved the
two. Adams, while he preferred
not to be caught, was ready for
any trouble that would convince
Americans to declare their inde-
pendence. When Hancock
reached for his sword, Same told
him to put his sword away and
said, "We aren't meant to be sol-
diers, we are the brains behind
the revolution. It is our duty to
escape." Sam Adams had no part
in the actual writing of the Dec-
laration of Independence, but be-
cause he had started so early to
work for it he has sometimes
been called "the father of inde-
pendence." Sam continued in pol-
itics all his life, but his real con-
tribution was in the early years
before the war.
Upon Adam's death in 1803,
President Jefferson gave the fol-'
lowing tribute. "If the America
Ship of State is at last in port,
safe and sound, it is only be-
cause Sam Adams was our
helmsman. He was the one who
led us into the Revolution, and
through its long, trying years, he
was the one who never gave up.
Samuel Adams was the Man of
the Revolution. He was the man
who made us free." A great patri-
ot indeed!

Child Support? Call HRS


The Florida Department of
Health and Rehabilitative Servic-
es (HRS) is offering to help any-
one not receiving their child sup-
port.
58% of all absent parents in
Florida ordered to pay child sup-
port do not make their payments.
Of the 42% who make payments,
only 20% pay the full amount.
The children of Florida de-
serve better. The District Two
Child Enforcement Program
wants to help. If you or someone
you know, is not receiving their


child support, call toll free 1-800-
622-KIDS or the local office of
child support enforcement.
