Primary Main Malfunction Puts
Raw Effluent Into St. Joe Bay
Employees of the Wastewater Treatment
Plant were still hunting the source of a major
leak yesterday, as approximately a half million
gallons of waste water per day was going into
St. Joseph's Bay after, only a minimum of
The leak was discovered Tuesday and is
believed to be in a 42 inch ductile iron force
main pipe which connects the primary collec-
tion station near the Overpass to the plant lo-
cated on Industrial Road.
According to Larry McArdle, manager of
the plant, the leak seems to be in the vicinity
of where the pipe crosses Chicken House
Branch, which runs along the west border of
the plant property, into the Gulf County Canal
and into St. Joseph Bay. "We don't know what
the cause of the leak is nor specifically where
it's located, yet," McArdle said.
The plant manager said well point machin-
ery was scheduled to arrive yesterday about
noon, to begin the process of drying out the
area of the leak so it can be excavated. "The
big 42 inch main is 10 feet underground at
this point, so all we can definitely determine is
that we have a leak," he said.
Mayor Frank Pate said Wednesday mom-
ing, '"We have 24 hours after such a problem
to notify DER and EPA and we have sent them
our official notification."
McArdle said the City shouldn't receive
any stiff fines or reprimands for the problem.
"If it had been negligence on our part, they
might come down on us, but leaks nobody
could foretell or prevent aren't held against

McArdle said it would probably be late this
afternoon or Friday before the problem area
can be dried out and excavated.
In the meantime, the plant manager said
the leak is being controlled as well as possible
to reduce the amount of flow into the Bay.
About 95% of the leaking effluent is spent

with the other five percent a mixture of do-

the competition down to Davis

the word, "condemn", leaving off
the "n" at the end of the word.
Davis then spelled the word cor-

Florida Banks Sign Merger Agreement
Florida National Banks of
Florida. Inc., announced Tuesday
it had signed an agreement with
First Union Corp., of Charlotte,
North Carolina, to merge the
Florida group with Union.
Florida National Is the corpo-
ration which owns Florida Na-
tional Bank here in Port St. Joe.
The decision, announced in
a telephone press conference
Tuesday, would make the bank
group the second largest in Flori-
da, with combined assets of $17
billion. Bamett would still be the
largest banking concern in the
state with assets of $24 billion.
The agreement calls for First
Union to pay $27.125 for each
share of Florida National com-
mon stock through a combina-
tion of 50 percent cash and 50
percent preferred stock to create
the new entity which will be
known as First Union Bank of

Required Reading [Hunker Down withKes
County Administrative Assistant Larry Wells has said
enough about Gulf county's new plan on two occasions at func-
tions during the past two weeks to convince us there is some
planning needed to accept the plans.
With the importance and the weight of state government be-
hind the proposed plans staring us in the face, we think it im-
portant the contents of these documents be aired all over the
county so everyone will be cognizant of their important lan-
guage and requirements.
These documents are going to be more than a "wish list" of
the direction we would all like to see our county take. It's going
to be more than a lot of pretty sounding words. It will be more
than a pie-in-the-sky fairy tale of how our county should be
This plan will have its severity determined by a state exami-
nation of what the county committee comes .up with for our
particular corner of Florida. This plan document will carry the
force of law. It will be emphatic and its requirements will be
tight. It will govern everything from what to do with a particu-
lar piece of land, to providing water, sewer, waste disposal,
streets, roads, drainage, schools, medical care, etc. If it affects
people, it will be included in the plan.
If you own a lot or a hunk of acreage anywhere in Gulf
county, it will determine what you can use that lot or piece of
acreage for. If you decided you wanted to sell it for residential
lots, and the plan decides it should lie vacant because it has
been determined as being wetlands, that piece of land will lie
There will be only two chances per year to have the plan re-
vised. That means, if there are 20 people wanting revisions to
their property designation, the last two in line can't even get a
hearing for 10 years!
That's tough, but it's only an example of just how binding
the plan will be.
For this reason, we're going to propose that every county of-
ficial, every city official, every state official in Florida, be RE-
QUIRED to read the plan governing his political subdivision be-
fore it is finally voted on for adoption. Somebody needs to know
exactly what is in each and every plan in the state and we se-
lect the elected officials to be those persons.
Frankly, the plan concept scares us, and we would rest a
little easier if, when it comes time to approve it, that 500-plus
page book isn't plunked down on a desk in front of an elected
official and he hefts it up, thumbs through the pages and re-
marks, "Somebody did a lot of work on this document. I move
that it be adopted!"
We hope that doesn't happen.
On Gored Oxen
We feel almost duty bound, as a newspaper, to comment on
the very controversial move by Congressman Bill Grant two
Grant astounded the political world of the Panhandle by an-
nouncing he was changing his characterization from that of a,
donkey to an elephant. He changed his political party registra-'
flon from that of Democrat to that of Republican.
As a result, it was difficult to pick up a newspaper or turn
on the television, but what Charles Whitehead or some other
high ranking Democrat was sounding forth, pontifically, that
Congressman Grant should resign and run again as a Republi-
can for the same office.
Of course, all of us understand it was a merely a ploy of
Democrats to place one of their persuasion in the office before
it is time to officially test the political waters in Florida.
Actually, considering the vote Grant received, it would ap-
pear as if he is of the same persuasion as the people of the Pan-
handle. As he said, and as many voters expressed last Novem-
ber: "We didn't leave the Democratic party; the Democratic
party left us." Grant has just made official in his political life
what most of we registered Democrats have been saying at the
We wonder, if Grant had switched from the Republican to
the Democratic party, would there still be this cacophony of
sound from the Democrats claiming he should resign and go
before the electorate under his new banner? We think not. The
Democrats would merely claim, "It's about time he saw the
light," while they were tittering at the Republicans for having
lost, a seat in Congress.
It all depends on whose ox is gored.

Somebody Didn't Do All of Their Homework
WE HAD ANOTHER report
from one of those writers who
didn't bother to visit Port St. Joe
last week. The report, in the Or-
lando Sentinel, really panned
Port St. Joe and Gulf county,
even though they were evidently
merely trying to show what good
things were coming to a back-
ward, ignorant and destitute peo-
ple such as we have here in Gulf
The report was in the Orlan-
do Sentinel, with a by-line for a
Rosemary Banks Harris, writing
on the good things which were
happening to Gulf county's chil-
dren, based on information pro-
vided by David Eardmann, dean
of admissions and financial aid at
Rollins College in Orlando.
Rollins is .a recipient of sup-
port from the Jessie Ball duPont
Foundation and. in addition to
his duties at Rollins College. Erd-
mann has been hired to come up
with a scheme, supported by the
Jessie duPont Foundation, for
finding means of sending any
Gulf county student who wants
to go, to be able to attend college.
Erdmann is working on this
project with a $75,000 grant from
NOW THAT WE HAVE identi-
fied the players in this nefarious
report, let me tell you what Erd-
mann has found out about Gulf
county in his nearly two year
study, while he spends $75,000
of the Foundation money.
First, according to the Senti-
nel article, and quoting Erdmann
as its "dependable" source of in-
formation, "only seven of the 150
students from the county's two
high schools went to college last

Joe alone, there were 98 to grad-
uate last year. Of these,, 20 are
currently attending a community .
college in the state, seven are at-
tending a major state university,
six are attending technical
schools, one is attending an out-
of-state technical school and
three are attending out-of-state
This adds up to 37 students,
of 98 graduates, attending insti-
tutions of higher learning from
Port St. Joe. We presume the'
same percentage holds true for
Wewahitchka graduates also.
Mr. Erdmann erred if this is
AGAIN, THE REPORT identi-
fied Gulf county bread-winners
as "mill workers who have an av-
erage annual income of about
This may have been true 20
or 25 years ago, but there is no-
body, we repeat, nobody, who
works for any of the mills here in
Port St. Joe who are making this
kind of money. Actually, if the ar-
ticle had said $8,000 semi-
annually, he would still have
been light, but he would have
been nearer correct.
There are more motor vehi-
cles registered in Gulf county
than there are men, women and
children in the county and a nice
boat in nearly every well-
manicured yard. Hardly anybody
walks in Gulf county, unless he
is doing it for the exercise.
The low average pay in Port
St. Joe's mills is probably more
than the writer of the story in the
Orlando Sentinel is paid.
THERE IS NO information
about college admission in Gulf
county school libraries, according
to the article. According to Sarah
Riley, guidance counsellor at Port
St. Joe High School, the guidance
office is now and always has
been, loaded with information
about college entrance and
stacks of information about how
to go about applying for entrance.

The article went on to say the
lack of student 'motivation for
higher learning is due to obsta-
cles placed in their way by their
parents. 'They were afraid that
their children will go away, get a
degree and never come back to
Ain't that a crock?
The article went on to point
out 'The basic problem was that
the parents [of Gulf county chil-
dren] were totally ignorant to the
whole process of college enroll-
ment, housing, paying for it all."
For Erdmann's and Harris'
Information, the parents are fear-
ful of this very thing simply be-
cause they earn so much money
Gulf county students are not eli-
gible for very many grants due to
the level of income here. They
know it is all going to come out of
their pockets, for the most part.

Give Me the 'Rockin'
It started last Thursday, four weeks ago. I felt a burning,
scratching sensation deep in the lower part of my throat, about
where my breast-bone begins.
By Friday morning it had penetrated my upper throat and
into my sinuses. I didn't need anyone to tell me I needed medi-
The doctor gave me a shot of penicillin, a prescription for
congestion to make me feel better invited me into his office to
listen to a couple of songs on his compact disc player that I nev-
er heard before and tent me home with Instructions to "drink'
plenty of liquids and get lots of rest."
That was Friday afternoon.
Immediately after leaving the doctor's office, I took a double-
dose of the "feel better" medicine and went to bed. I rested until
time for our Friday night card game. We play "Hearts" each Fri-
day night for a penny a game.
All day Saturday I felt fairly well, but by Sunday afternoon I
wasn't sure if I wanted to live or die. I'm not one who gets sick
often and maybe I can't bear pain, but let me try to describe
how I was feeling Sunday and for the next few days.
My overall feeling was that I was not among the living or the
dead. I felt like I was existing, floating on a clbud of pain, If you
can imagine that.
If you've never played a game of college football you probably
won't understand this, but I felt like I had played 60 minutes of
hard-fought, block and tackle against the Seminoles and I was
the only one on the field without a helmet and shoulder pads.
My head felt like someone had inserted balloons in each ear
and pumped hot water In them, putting extreme pressure on my
brain and eyeballs.
When I tried to swallow, my throat felt like I had drank some
hot, melted lead the day before. It reminded me of the day some
years ago when I had my tonsils removed and they handed me a
big bowl of ice cream and told me to eat it.
It even hurt to breathe! My lungs were operating at about
half-capacity and I breathed in short, shallow, rasping breaths.
When I tried to cough I thought my head would explode.
One time I thought it had exploded, but it was just dried
blood from where I had cut myself shaving four days earlier.
I didn't shave because the hair on my body hurt!
I can't remember when I've been so exhausted! A walk to the
kitchen would put me out for several hours. As a matter of fact,
I stayed in bed for so long that I felt like I had bed sores all over
Today, some four weeks later, many of the symptoms re-
main. I'm not as strong as before, congestion in my chest and
head remain and my throat is still a bit sore. ---
If you haven't had the flu, I hope you don't get it. If you are
unfortunate and do contact it, call the preacher or priest; the
doctor can't help you!
The next time, if I have a choice, I'll take a good case of
pneumonia so I can be admitted to a hospital where I can get 24
hour medical attention.
It is understandable why some people die from the flu. I felt
like I was closely

Rockets to Make Little Impact Here
Should Attract Plants and Services to Vicinity But No Dramatic Impact
There will be no Cape Canav-
eral-type development here in
Gulf county, either now or in the
Dr. Chris Shove, director of
Florida's space operations and
Frank Duke, his assistant, told a
small group of business and gov-
ernment leaders here in Port St.
Joe Thursday afternoon of last
week, the spaceport being pro-
posed for the Cape San Bilas area
will be just a small operation,
"hardly noticed by the people vho
Shove in giving the straight
story of what Gulf can expect
from the program, said the plans
for the Cape San Blas installation
will be a very small operation.
"Most of the facilities are al-
ready there on the Air Force in-
stallation now being operated by
Vitro. The pads are there and
we've been told the superstruc-
ture which holds the rockets in
place while firing, is in storage
somewhere and can be easily
put back into operation," Shove
The local installation is ex-
pected to cost no more than
$500,000, with the main thrust
of the commercial spaceport op-
erations centered at an unused
portion of the Cape Canaveral in-
"We can't shoot rockets out
over an area where debris will fall
on inhabited areas," he said.
Shove pointed out a large rocket
of the type sent up at Cape Ca-
naveral would dump its spent de-.
bris over Central America, if it
were sent up at Cape San Blas.
"For this reason, we will be
sending up rockets of from 20 to
60 feet tall, going up to an alti-
tude of about 20,000 feet. This
will provide about six to 12 min-
utes of weightlessness for experi-
mental purposes and will be the
only type operation under way
here," Shove said.

County schools are as follows:
Monday, March 13 cheese-
burger, lettuce, tomato, pickle,

Dr. Chris Shove reveals first-hand information about the pro-
posed rocket launching site for Gulf County Thursday in a meet-
ing with local officials.
The state official said the only
inconvenience to local people
would be stoppage of traffic in
the Vitro installation area for
about 20 minutes while a shot is
sent up. 'This nmay happen once
or twice a month," Shove pointed
The Cape San Blas site was
used during the late 60's and
early 70's to launch just the type
rockets it will be expected to
launch under the spaceport pro-
gram. The hew concept will even

New CPR Course for Emergency Personnel
The Red Cross has designed a
new CPR course teaching safety
skills used by paramedics, fire-
fighters, lifeguards and other per-
sons who respond to emergen-
cies. Called American Red Cross
CPR: Basic Life Support for the
Professional Rescuer, the four-
hour course includes training in
administering two-rescuer CPR,
responding to cardiac and respir-
atory emergencies, using resusci-
tation masks, and recognizing the
warning signals of a heart attack.
"Going beyond the fundamen-
tals of CPR, this course meets the
special needs of people who have
a duty to act in an emergency,"
says Larry Wells, Branch Chair-
man in Port St. Joe. "The course
uses innovative teaching methods
and the latest emergency care
standards to help professional
rescuers do their jobs."
Part I of the course addresses
the role of professional rescuers
in a community's emergency
medical services (EMS) system. A
section on the respiratory and cir-
culatory systems links the partici-
pant's knowledge of anatomy with
critical lifesaving skills such as
rescue breathing and CPR. Other
sections in Part I discuss the risk
factors of heart disease; infant,
child and adult CPR; and first aid
Part II presents skills that
build on the foundation of single-
rescuer techniques. Participants
learn two-rescuer CPR, skills for
airway management, and tech-
niques for positioning and resus-
citating victims of head, neck and
back injuries. A section on ,the
use -of resuscitation masks dis-
csses how to guard against dis-
To help. people remember
what they have learned, the new
course teaches- people only the
skills they are most likely to use
in an emergency.
"Our older CPR courses
taught people more skills than
they really needed, causing them
to forget what they had learned
and to be reluctant to act in a cri-
sis," says Wells. 'This new course
gives people the confidence to
step forward when help is need-

The County Commission's ad-
ministrative assistant, Larry
Wells, brought his story about
the comprehensive plan for
growth management being com-
piled for Gulf County to the Ro-
tary Club Thursday.
Advising the club that the
plan was required by the Florida
Legislature, he went on to say the
final draft must be approved by
the State of Florida, who will ex-
amine the county's final draft to
see if it covers all the subjects in
the manner the state wants them
Wells said the plans will co-
oincide with similar plans being
required of the incorporated cities
in the county, as well as with the
district and state plans. If there
is any way in which the several
plans do not complement each
other, someone must change
Langdon Flowers, president
of Barrier Dunes, Inc., outlined
his plans for a proposed boat
launch facilities before the Kiwa-
nis Club Tuesday, marking the
first time Flowers has revealed
his plans for the locally contro-
versial development, publicly.
Flowers started with, "I guess"
I went at this thing all wrong." He
pointed out he now feels he
should have outlined the extent
of his project before asking for
permits or making plans.
"The original drawings pre-
sented over a year ago-which by
the way, drew only two locally
negative responses at the time-
were scrapped even before we
started trying to secure a permit.
What you saw on that sketch Is
nothing like the permit request."
Flowers explained to the Ki-
wanians the drawing was only an
engineer's ideas of what could be
done with the property in ques-
tion, but advice was almost im-
mediately given that it would be
impossible to secure a permit for
the development. "We abandoned
that sketch almost immediately,"
Plans now, according to the
Barrier Dunes developer, are to
just dredge out the existing

Paul Revere: Silversmith and Patriot
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 two
weeks a prize-winning essay will be featured.
Paul Revere was born on Jan-
uary 1, 1735 in Boston, Massa-
chusetts. Paul was the third of 12
children in the family. Paul's fa-
ther Apollos Rivoire came to Bos-
ton from Island Guernsey, in the
English Channel. Paul's father
had the family name changed
from Rivoire to Revere, Paul's fa-
ther also was a silversmith and
had his own shop in Boston.
Paul had very little formal ed-
ucation but he learned the trade
of silversmithing from his father.
Paul Revere became a very talent-
ed master craftsman. Some of Re-

The British Parliament ap-
proved the Stamp Act of 1765.
This act stated wills, deeds, mort-
gages, licenses to sell certain
goods, college diplomas, newspa-
pers and almanacs had to carry a
governmental stamp. The stamps
cost one cent to fifty dollars. This
stamp act and other taxes imple-
mented by the British caused the
move for independence.
Paul Revere became very in-
terested in the move for indepen-
dence. He engraved political car-
toons that drew widespread
Revere was one of the found-
ers of the "Sons of Liberty," a se-
cret club that found ways to op-
pose the British.
one example of this opposi-
tion was the 'Boston Tea Party'.
Revere along with other members
of the "Sons of Liberty" dressed as
Indians dumped three shiploads
of' English tea into Boston Har-
Soon the colonies began to or-
ganize troops and started to stock
pile weapons, bullets, and pow-

about this quantity of supplies
stored in a village in Concord.
During the night of April 18,
1775, British troops were given
the order to go from Boston to
Lexington to capture two leading
patriots, Samuel Adams and
John Hancock. However, the Brit-
ish plan did not work. The plan
was discovered by some Bostoni-
ans, Paul Revere was in this
group. Colonists also joined the
militia. This was a group of peo-
ple that were ready to fight at any
time. This same group of people
became known as the Minute
The Minute men were ready
for the British. Their signal was
to hang one light if the British
were to attack by land, two if by
sea. The lamps were to be hung
in the Old North Church. Revere
was ready to ride. He just had to
wait for the signals. Revere start-

as Paul rode on to Concord

Coats marched into Lexington.
They met a band of Minute Men.
British Major Pitcarin ordered the
men to move but they didn't until
they were fired upon. Seven were
killed and nine were wounded
and the rest fled. They could not
beat the British.

farmers swarmed through the
