Rain Pummels County-3.6 Inches
Heavy rains lashed the Pan- account of rainfall in the Port inches in February. "That ha

first spring thunderstorm of

Mike McDonald, manager of
Florida Power Corporation, said
the storm which did considera-
ble electric service damage in
other areas didn't cause many
problems in Gulf county. "We
had a transformer go out in
Mexico Beach, after it was hit
by lightning, and a fuse opened
up in Indian Pass, but that was
all," McDonald said.
Water flooded Highway 98
and parts of Williams Avenue
in spots about 8:00 p.m., but
the floods didn't last long and
caused no accidents.

With Governor Bob Martinez
and Secretary of State Jim Smith
taking a recruiting swing through
the Panhandle early this week,
the swing to the Republican party
was gaining momentum in an
area where the word wasn't even
mentioned in polite society not
too long ago.
The Governor and Secretary
of State were meeting with some
success in their drive to convert
those formerly identified as "con-
servative Democrats" to the par-
ty. In Bay county, political heavy-
weight Dempsey Barron was
probably the prize catch for the
Grand Old Party and a surge in
registration has upped the Re-
publican numbers to an estimat-
ed 40 percent state-wide.
Here in Gulf county, the
surge to Republicanism is more
like a slight ripple. Supervisor of

Elections, Cora Sue Robinson
said the drive, which started with
a visit by recently converted Con-
gressman Bill Grant last week
and given the push by Martinez
and Smith this week, has failed
to catch fire here. 'We have had
only about four to change their
party registration during the
past month," she said.
Of course, four per month is
an unusually high number of
those making the change here in
Gulf county. In a county which
had less than 100 registered Re-
publicans at the last election,
four switches in a month is
enough to make those serious
about their party to sit up and
take notice, but it's still no land-
Whatever impetus is there is
going to be utilized by the few Re-
publican party members here in

the county, however. According
to Stiles Brown, local vocal Re-
publican chairman, they are
planning a drive to encourage
more "conservative Democrats" to
change their affiliation.
Friday of last week, at a din-
ner held for Congressman Grant,
the strategy of Gulf county Re-
publicans was revealed and an
appeal was made to the regis-
tered Democrats present to give
consideration to making the
jump from one party to the other.
The swinging tide to the Re-
publican party in the south and
in the Panhandle may turn into a
flood here in Gulf county one of
these days, but at the present
time, even with the small corps of
ardent Republicans already in
the fold, the movement isn't gen-
erating much more than a small

Grant Defends Switch As "Act of Conscience"

S- -. 7 Haven't Changed. Only My Party Affiliation Is Different."

Congressman Bill Grant answers a question from
Rev. Jerry Huft in a visit to Port St. Joe Friday.

"I haven't changed. Only my party affiliation is different,"
Congressman Bill Grant told a room-full of local business lead-
ers here in Port St. Joe last Friday, who were interested in
hearing his side of one of the most talked about news subjects
of the first quarter of 1989.
Grant said his political philosophy hasn't changed one bit.
"I tried and tried to get the Democratic party to adopt just some
of the position of the people of my area and they wouldn't do it.
The Democratic party has opposed nationally, every point on
the platform with which I was successful in being elected to of-
fice. If I could have remained a conservative Democrat and felt I
at least was supported on one or two platform points, I would
have remained a Democrat. As it was, I either had to change
parties or philosophies," the Congressman said.
Of course, the Congressman admits the change wasn't an
easy one to make. He said he knew it would draw concentrated
fire from Democratic leaders in the district, but he was sticking
to the conviction the rank and file citizen of his district had ex-
pressed to him during his election campaign.
To illustrate Grant's conviction he was doing what his con-
stituents wanted him to do, he cited an incident during his
campaign up on Highway 2 near the Alabama line. He said he
stopped at a small garage where two farmers were standing in
front to ask for their vote. "They told me they would vote for me
as long as 'I wasn't one of them' indicating the national Demo-
cratic leadership. 'When you become one of them, I won't vote

for you any more,'" the farmer said.
The Congressman said, "When I started running for Con-
gress, I told everyone who would listen that I was in favor of a
strong defense for our country, giving aid to the Contras, giv-
ing a line veto to the President, passing an amendment requir-
ing a balanced national budget, at least a few moments of si-
lent prayer before school is opened each day and a protection
of the pledge of allegiance to the flag. These are fundamentals
to our American life. The national Democratic platform is op-
posed to each and every one of them. My conscience just
wouldn't let me stay," he said.
Grant said he gave long and careful consideration to his
move before he made it. "I certainly didn't make it for gain or
because it was the expedient thing to do. Eighty-five percent of
the voters in my district are registered Democrats. I have cer-
tainly not earned Democratic support by this move.
"After careful deliberation," he said, "I came to the conclu-
sion the national Democratic party no longer reflected the goals
of the people I represent. I could not stay and pay allegiance to
the party, when it opposed everything the people in my district
hold dear."
What Grant said, in a nutshell, was that his conscience
would not let him belong to a philosophy he did not believe in.
That makes the Congressman a unique individual in the politi-
cal world. There are not many left who even claim to follow
their conscience.

Editorials and Comments



Without Faith, It's Just

A Change of the Season

Sunday is Easter in the Christian world, and a time for ob-
serving-the death, burial and resurrection of God's son, Jesus
To some, it marks the passing of the Vernal Equinox, a time
when the sun begins making its way back to the north and
bringing on spring and summer.
Both events are a significant event in the life of human be-
ings, because both mean a re-newed life and a source of life.
One cannot grow the corps which feed mankind without a
period of warm growing season. Nobody has to tell you what
would happen if no food were produced. Man would perish.
One cannot live the life his Creator meant for him to live
without having an experience with God. The Bible describes
such people, who have not had such an experience, as being
spiritually dead and incapable of spiritual life without the
source of this life.
We're sure some of our preacher friends could do a much
better job than we of explaining just how important and neces-
sary are the events which resulted in the message of Easter to
man. They can quote you chapter and verse as to just what
happened on that holy week end and just how the plan of God
was manifested and just what it means to man.
However, no preacher can believe it for any of us. We must
do that ourselves. No preacher can accept God's goodness into
our lives for us. We must do that for ourselves. No preacher
can react to God's promise and his commands for us. We must
do it for ourselves.
If we were to have a point to this piece it would be that
we're pretty important, too, in carrying out the full meaning of
Easter. We must react before it can be a reality in our lives. If it
isn't a reality in our lives, Easter is just the Vernal Equinox.

Apple A Day...

Fruit consumption took a licking last week, when apples be-
came more unpopular and were causing more trouble than
they did back in the Garden of Eden in Biblical days.
We were told that the insecticides being used on the apple
crop in Washington state was making them dangerous to con-
sume. The people who always jump on any bandwagon if it's
aginn" something, were having a heyday with calling on the gov-
ernment to outlaw the pesticides. Someone else rebutted the
claim of danger from eating the apples which had been treated
with the bug killer by saying we would have to eat 224,000 ap-
ples per day to have any ill effects.
Most of us won't eat 224,000 apples per day. Actually, if it
weren't for the application of the pesticides, there are millions
in the world today who might not eat an apple at all.
Our advice on the apple thing is to do what you were taught
in the first grade at school. Wash that sucker good and then
- We can't just ignore the sage advice that "an apple a day
keeps the doctor away." That would be un-American.

'Fruit' Trouble

Two grapes from Chile are found to have been injected with
an arsenic-like substance and because of this, thousands upon
thousands of cases of perfectly good fruit has been taken off
the markets in this nation of ours.
Since all this happened last week, we must draw the con-
clusion that thousands upon thousands of cases of formerly
perfectly good fruit are now thousands upon thousands of cas-
es of rotten, soggy messes by now.
The trouble isn't with the fruits coming off the tree or vine.
The trouble is with the fruits we have running around out there
on two legs who are just looking for ways to scare the pants off
people by putting poison substances in unsuspecting places.
No doubt we haven't heard the last of this thing, yet. In all
likelihood we will now probably have an epidemic of crazies
putting poisons in bran cereals or wheat germ. Each crazy will
try to, out-do the other in his imagination and we will all be
running from our shadows while the crazy gets his jollies.

I eased into my seat thinking,
'What are we doing here? This
girl Is not old enough to be get-
-ting married."
I also asked Cathy for the
15th time what we were doing
here at 5:25. The show doesn't
start tfl 6:00. My wife as usual
was patting me on the hand and
saying, "Just sit still and keep
your mouth shut doesn't the

church look lovely. It's going to be
such a pretty wedding."
She's never been to a wedding
that she didn't think was "simply
divine". I was trying to count the
number of candles when the mu-
sic started. Listen, I knew the pia-
no player and the singer. When
Ann brought out her guitar I
stood up and was a'flxing to yell

the bride. I'd stop by to see her:
father and drink some tea and
talk about the ball game. I guess
it started back when her older
brothers were in little league. I'd
go in, find me a glass, stroll to the
refrigerator, pour my own tea (her
folks were nice but a little slow on
service), sit down at the kitchen
table and we'd start rehashing
the day's game. I'd be explaining
to Fuzz to forget about that high
leg kick and that slow curve -
Just smoke'm on the inside. Miss
Martha would go over every pitch
the blind umpire missed and
what a terrible call he made on
the play at third in the second in-
ning. Now folks, Martha is near
about the best umpire I've ever
seen. She can spot a bad call in-
stantly from any seat in the park
and she'd let everybody know
about it before the dust settled -
that's the way they raised'em up
in North Alabama around Salem
and Leggtown. Pam would come
bouncing in, "Hi Coach!"
She'd be grinning from ear to
ear, hair tied back in a pony tail,
wearing a shirt about three sizes
too big and no shoes. I don't
think she ever wore shoes. The
thing I probably remember most
was she didn't just say hello -
she was truly glad to see you.
"Mom, we got anything to eat?"
Now that's my kind of girl.
What a special treat watching
Robbie and Sandy grow up! Ca-
thy would go over on Friday
nights before the football game
and fix Pam's hair. I'd go over the
next day to find out what the
coaches had done wrong. Pam
would meet me with hair tied
back, an oversized shirt, no shoes
and a grin big as all outdoors, "Hi
coach!" Shucks, this' girl wasn't
growing up. And that's the way I
liked it.
I loved it a few years later
when she'd babysit for us. We'd
get back and the cushions were
off the couch, the rocker was
turned over, Pam's hair would be
"sweated" to her forehead, Josh
was bleeding over his left eye and
Jesse would be crying and laugh-
ing at the same time. They'd been

Erdmann Comes to Town Saying, '7 Didn't Say Anything Like That!"

IT PAINS ME TO be critical
of someone and then have it
proven the criticism was unmerit-
ed. It isn't the most pleasant
thing in the world for me to be
put in a position where public ex-
pression of opposition is neces-
sary. No matter which side any-
one is on, there are those who
are on the opposite side and will
readily express themselves and
their opposition when you take
your stand.
Such was the case two weeks
ago, when I jumped on the news
article which appeared in the Or-
lando Sentinel, credited to David
Erdmann of the duPont Founda-
tion scholarship program. Erd-
mann was credited by the Senti-
nel with saying some unkind,
degrading and unwarranted
things about Gulf county and our

school system here.
It isn't enough to know that
in this Instance, the entire
county, almost to a man, felt as I
felt. Even our Superintendent of
Schools, took up his pen, and
joined my efforts in officially filing
objections to the utterances. I
wasn't the only one to react in
the manner which I did. Even so,
it doesn't make it any easier, or
salve my conscience any more to
know I was wrong, even though
in an innocent manner, in casti-
gating Mr. Erdmann. All us casti-
gators felt we were entirely Justi-
fied in venting our spleen. And,
we all felt we were venting said
spleen in the correct direction.

Erdmann wrong.
He has been gentleman
enough about the situation to tell
us all he doesn't blame us for
taking the position we did. He

said, in effect, that if someone
had said such things, untrue
things, about his county, he
would have his feathers ruffled,
Erdmann came to Gulf
county, along with his sidekick
on the education program, Rick
Dalton, to tell us first hand he
did not say the things attributed
to him. They were allthe product
of a daily newspaper reporter lis-
tening to a report he was giving
and drawing the wrong conclu-
sions. "I would never say such
things about Gulf county, be-
cause they just aren't so!" Erd-
mann said in Superintendent
Walter Wilder's office Thursday.
"I just don't know how a
trained newspaper reporter could
mix things up so thoroughly and
I wrote her a letter telling her so,"
Erdmann said.
I saw a copy of the letter and

Mr. Erdmann wasn't at all kind
with Rosemary Baker Harris, who
wrote the article which caused
: such a storm here in Port St. Joe.
We here in Gulf county can
understand how the reporter
fouled things up. It happens to
us all the time in those south
Florida and large town daily

lieve him: "I was giving a seven
minute report on the state of ed-
ucation in many small towns
across the nation and digressed
maybe 30 seconds to talk about
Gulf county. I had only good
things to say about the progress
here during that short period.
We're proud of the education sit-
uation here and the desire among
the people to even improve what
is already here. That's why this
committee chose Gulf county
from many we visited, to be the

first to be Involved in this pro-
Erdmann went on to say the
figures quoted were not accurate-
ly reported and again, didn't refer
to Gulf county. Even so, the in-
come figure was given as a per
capital figure, not a family figure.
Too, the great majority of his re-
marks didn't even pertain to Gulf
county. The short mention of
Gulf county as an example of
what cooperation will do in a
community, caused the reporter
to hang on every subject and ex-
ample as if it pertained to Gulf
"Again, we chose this county
for our program because of its
strengths; not its weaknesses."
he said. 'This county has made
more progress, due to its keen in-
terest in its future, in the past
two years than the average
county does in 10 years."
Erdmann then went on to
corroborate what Mrs. Sarah Ri-

ley had told The Star. 'Your guid-
ance and media centers are
bursting with information about
institutions of higher learning
and how and where to look for
help to attend any of them. Your
school system has sent guidance
people to short courses to better
train them in guiding pupils to
seek higher education after high
Erdmann and Dalton both
expressed a keen desire to re-
sume good relations in Gulf
county after the unfortunate re-
porting by a reporter who didn't
listen very well.
With an attitude like that and
after making a special appear-
ance here to straighten out a
wrongful happening, how could
we deny Mr. Erdmann an apology
for having reached a wrong con-
clusion about he and his opinion,
even though he, too, would have
reached the same conclusion, un-
der similar circumstances.

Stay In Bed

We all know that man is a creature of habit.
For most of my adult life I have been an early riser. By early
I mean that during the week I'm always up by 5:30 a.m. I have
gotten up earlier in the past and occasionally a little later, but
most of the time I'm up before most folks.
The rest of my family are all late sleepers. On week days my
wife is up early, but it's not because she wants to be. I takes two
working these days, as hard as they can, just to make ends
Over the years she and I have developed an early morning
(weekdays only) ritual that we go through. After years of practice
we have it down to a science and we both enjoy it. And it doesn't
vary five minutes. It goes like this:
Each morning I'm up at 5:30, give or take five minutes. I do
my bathroom chores, dress, get the paper, put on the coffee,
empty the dishwasher-if it is full of clean dishes and I have
time-and start reading the paper.
By the time the coffee is ready and I'm on the second page of
the paper and she is up and downstairs, ready for her first cup.
We don't talk during the first cup of coffee or the first section
of the paper, whichever ends last. It is a "quiet time" for us be-
cause she can't get words out until she's had a cup of coffee.
Sometimes it takes two cups.
I can talk almost anytime, but it's difficult to talk when no
one's listening.
That's the way it is and has been for several years; during
the week. On Saturday and Sunday I have the "quiet time" to
myself because she stays in bed.
One day last week something happened that threw my whole
day out of kilter. My daughter decided she was going to get up
early and take a walk before getting ready for school. She didn't
realize it was still dark at 5:30 in the morning because she had
never been up that early.
I didn't realize how small our kitchen was before that morn-
ing. It seemed that everywhere I wanted to be, there she was.
When I went to put the coffee on, she was in my place pre-
paring a bowl of cereal. I looked through three cabinets for the
sugar before I realized she had it on the table to sweeten her ce-
When I went outside to get the morning paper, it was not
there. The dog has hid it again, I thought as I went inside to get
her to help me find it. 'Want the sports section, Daddy?" she
asked as I,approached the dining room.
When I opened the dishwasher to empty It, there were no
dishes inside. Two cups were set up next to the coffee maker
where I usually place them and a spoon was placed on a napkin
next to the cups.
Totally confused, I poured a cup of coffee, sat down at the
table to read the paper, but my daughter wanted to talk.
A good start is important in any undertaking, especially
when one is close to 40, as I am. That is why I want to encour-
age my sweet, loveable daughter to stay in bed and get her rest.
Her mother and I desperately need itl


coming 'that works on me about
0 doing some crazy things.
Pam's senior year she was
elected Homecoming Queen. A
couple of weeks later Josh and I
were having our usual Saturday
night football game out in the
back yard. It was another no
holds barred contest. When we
broke for half time I was ahead
by a touchdown. Before we could
get to the "locker room" Cathy
opened the back door and started,
the music. Pam came marching
out complete with crown and'
everything. Josh, as captain, in a
much more impressive ceremony
than a few'weeks before, named
her our homecoming queen. She
even stayed around til the end of
the game to "cheer" for Josh and
present him with a trophy as he
pulled the game out in the clos-
ing seconds. Folks, you'd have to
have a six year old boy who lived
and breathed sports to even have
a clue as to the significance of
that evening. We'll never forget it
at our house.
I was brought back to the
present as the music changed
and the stars begin to file to the
front of the church. They had as
many people in this wedding as
they had candles. I've seen' Cecil
B. DeMille movies that didn't
have a cast as large as this. I've
met the groom, somebody said he
was a football player a field
goal kicker for the University of
Florida I think. I didn't get a
chance to tell him he was
a'marrying our very own football
As Pam came down the aisle
she was gi-inning from ear to ear
but to my surprise she had on a
dress that fit stand no pony tail.
She did have a rope tied around
her head to keep the sweat out of
her eyes. I stood up and .leaned
forward I wanted to see if she

Toward Understanding |

Paul Had A Simple Message

"Cleave to that which is
good." So says St. Paul in Ro-
mans 12:9. I am often struck
with the simplicity of St. Paul's
presentation of the standards for
the Christian life style.
The ideal of cleaving, or cling-
ing to things that are good ap-
pears to be an easy assignment.
That is, until you are faced with a
problem which is a bit cloudy. Or
when you are dealing with a situ-
ation that has your own self-
interest at stake.
I have found that I don't al-
ways know what the good thing

Books Purchased
With Tapper Fund
Twenty-nine new registrations
in February brought the library
membership count to 1,029. A to-
tal of nearly 1,800 books were
checked out, including over 400
juveniles, 900 adult fiction, and
400 adult non-fiction.
Library statistics indicate an-
other 41 persons used the audio-
visual. materials and equipment,
92 had questions answered, 10
programs were held, and an un-
countable number used the refer-
ence materials.
New books available include

to do is. This is especially true at
election time. Making decisions
between two or more candidates
is not always clear-cut. Health
decisions are sometimes cloudy
too. To have surgery or receive
treatments can be very stressful.
especially when medical science
doesn't always know the best
route to take.
Most of us have a difficult
time choosing the good thing over
some self-interest. And when a lot
of money is involved, as in the
sale of a house or a car, we .are
tempted to withhold information
so that our profit may be larger.

Still, St. Paul says that our
standard must be to cling to the
good. The instructions which
come earlier in Romans 12:9 give
us a clue as to how we might hold
fast to the good.
First we are to be genuine in
our love. Before we can be genu-
ine we need to pause for a mo-
ment and look at others with
compassion. Like we do with a lit-
tle child. We must let our hearts
melt with kindness as we consid-
er the good thing to do.
Next we are to hate evil. Evil
thoughts, words, and actions
need to be put out of our lives.

invites the Community of
Port St. Joe to the
Presentation of the

Easter Musical

"The Third


Monday, March 27
7:00 p.m.

Present in the Third Day
are some of the important events of
Christ's last week--His triumphal
entry into Jerusalem, the quiet
intimacy of the Upper Room, the
touching scene of Joseph requesting
the crucified body of the Nazarene,
and the spellbinding moment-of
His resurrection.

As You Listen
to this exciting new work, it is
hoped that your prayer will become
one of thanks. For following Jesus'
agonizing death upon the cross,
there dawned a day of new Life
.. .The Third Day.

sephs Catholic Church is seen in

Tells News
'We Sing Arouna mne ;amp-
fire" was presented by the second
grades on Wednesday, March 22
to an audience of more than 500.
This delightful musical took you
on a nostalgic journey to the days
of camp songs, round singing,
and favorite folk songs. Mrs. Judi
Lister, Mrs. Lori Price, and Miss
Joyce Quinn were the directors of
this musical remembrance to
simpler times. Bravo!
Leprechauns Visit
Friday morning, on St. Pat-
rick's Day, the children of the
third grade received quite a sur-
prise. Evidence of little green feet
were everywhere from the front
door, across some desks, down
the walls, and finally to a pot of
gold filled with butterscotch can-
dies. All this was in keeping with
a study of custom, etc., sur-
rounding the season. Third grade
teachers, Joe Walker, Linda Tre-
main, and Linda Whitfield swear
they locked their doors the night
before Student teacher, Mrs.
Brooks F. Semmes, then showed
the classes a filmstrip about Irish
Thursday and Friday, March
23 and 24, the teachers of all the
schools in the county will be at-
tending in-service activities. As
usual, the pickings are very inter-
esting, and this time is no excep-
tion. Topics for consideration are:
Art for Elementary Classroom
Teachers, Geography and U.S.
History for Elementary Teachers,
Discipline, and Student Prepara-
tion for College.
Tour Bank
The Exceptional Student
classes of Mrs. Diane Atchison,
Mrs. Marge Prange, and Mrs.
Pam Sumner were given a tour of
the Wewahitchka State Bank on
Friday, March 17. The students
were enlightened as to all the var-
ious functions of the banking
business. From there, the stu-
dents played softball at the Little
League field and then had a nice
picnic lunch. It was a lovely day
for all students and teachers.
Time Capsule
The second grade of Mrs. Judi
i Lister had a ground breaking on
the morning of the 17th. Mrs. Mi-
cah Peak, who is involved in a
field study class in reading, in-
volved the children in a special
language project which ultimately
led up the children writing some-
thing about themselves and then
sealing all the writings and their
photos in a time capsule. It will

tion of a hew system.
The Commission has repeat-
edly told the firm they must come
up with a performance bond be-
fore they will even consider Issu-
ing a new franchise. "If they will
provide that performance bond,
I'd be willing to vote to begin pro-
cedures to awairdia franchise im-
mediately," the Mayor said.
Since the firm hasn't yet fur-
nished the bond, the nfew fran-
chise Is still on hold.
In the meantime, Nathan Pe-
ters, Jr., representing the Con-
cerned Christian Society made a
presentation to the Commission
Tuesday night, requesting the
Commission use its influence in
getting cable TV service for North
Port St. Joe. 'There is no part of
our particular area which has
cable TV and is the only part of
the city which, does not have the
service," Peters said.
Mayor Pate said the late Bob
Neuman had plans to extend Gulf
Cable TV service to the neighbor-
hood just before he died. Since
his death, the company has oper-
ated under an administrator and
has done no construction work.
Pate said the firm may re-
sume the plans in the near fu-
ture. "It is my information the'
company will be sold and change
ownership on April 1, which will
probably change their operating
methods considerably."
"I feel you will probably get
service after the sale is consum-
mated," Pate told Peters.
The Commission approved
two bids for purchase of services
and supplies at Tuesday's meet-
St. Joe Machine and Fabri-
cating Company of Port St. Joe
offered the low price to furnish a
set of four rolls for a Komline-
Sanderson machine at the Waste-
water Treatment plant. St. Joe's
bid was for $9,775.
Big River Communications,
Inc., of Port St. Joe, was low bid-
der to furnish two mobile radios
and four hand held portables for
the Port St. Joe Police Depart-
ment. Big River's bid was for
$4,100, including two years of

be unearthed when these chil-
dren are in the sixth grade, just
prior to their graduation from the
Elementary School.
Star Student
Our "Star" student of the
week is Kendrick Sims, who is in
the fourth grade class of Mrs. Es-
ther Taunton. Kendrick is the son
of Daniel and Betty Sims and he
is 10 years old. Kendrick's favor-
ite subject in school is "knowing
my states" and, he would like to
meet Pee Wee Herman. One day
Kendrick hopes to travel to Niaga-
ra Falls, N.Y. He would like to be
a "cop" in Los Angeles, California,
when he grows up. His favorite
sport is. racing. The school is
lucky to have Kendrick.

From Cape San Bias By Pallas Gandy, D.N.R.

Spring is here and time to get
out your purple martin houses,
clean them out, and put them up
again. I saw the first scouting
group of martins diving gracefully
over our road at St. Joseph State
Park. They are the front runners
of the main body of purple mar-
tins that migrate north from
South America. Their main diet is
mosquitoes, houseflies, and other
small insects. These little swal-
low-tailed birds dive while on
wing gliding in graceful circles.
The male is uniformly blue black.
The female light-bellied; throat
and breast grayish, often with a
faint collar around the neck.
You'll notice as you come out
to enjoy a beautiful day that
some changes have been made at
your state park. There has been
some landscaping and road pav-
ing going on.
Have you ever noticed that
some of the mud flats in our bay
are purple in color?!Look at them
during low tide. I guess most peo-
ple have never questioned what
has turned the mud purple, it
has always been that way. Well
after some searching and talking
to marine biologists, I found, out

what gives the mud that purple
color. Diatoms. -they are unicel-
lular or colonial algae widely dis-
tributed in both fresh and saltwa-
ter. The cell wall is composed of
an inner layer of pectin and-outer
layer of silica, one of the world's
most widespread minerals and a
common compound of glass,
soundproofing, paints, and scour-
ing powders. Now this tiny plant
is a natural environmental Indica-
tor that lets you know that the
bacteria level in the bay is nor-
mal. For if the bay had a high
bacteria level they would die. Dia-
toms are also a vital part of the
food chain for the tiniest of ma-
rine life to the longest whale.
They are also phosphorescent
and emit a conspicuous glow at
Purples and golds are one of
the predominate colors found
naturally in this area of Florida,
so it is no wonder that Port St.
Joe Jr.-Sr. High School adapted
these colors for their school.
Take time to get out and real-
ly look at nature, with eyes that
see. Look at the miraculous
sights and learn how nature oper-
ates to help us live a fruitful life.

Arctic Seal
Raffield Fisheries will soon
have the "Arctic Seal" on the
high seas, serving as a 'mother
ship' for their fleet of smaller
-fishing boats and as a deep wa-
ter trawler..
Eugene Raffield, manager of
Raffield Shipbuilding Company,
which is outfitting the boat for
its new service, says they will
have the 166 foot twin diesel
vessel putting out to sea in
about a year. In the meantime,
the boat is being refurbished to
hold some two million pounds
of seafood product, including
complete freezing equipment,
as well as. installing equipment
to turn the former tender into
a mid-water trawler. This
means the boat will work in wa-
ters 100 feet and more deep
and will fish half-way from the
surface to the bottom.
-"Mainly we'll be going after
butterfish to process and ship
to Japan," Raffield said.
-When the boat was first
purchased at auction by the
Fisheries, Gene Raffield, man-
ager of the huge seafood opera-
tion here in Port St. Joe said,
"We needed another boat like

we need a hole in the head, but
the trend is moving to this
type operation to stay competi-
tive and with our operation, we
must remain competitive."
When renovations are fin-
ished, the boat will go to sea
for weeks at a time and range
all over the Gulf of Mexico,
fishing in deeper waters than
Raffleld's have ever worked in
before, The boat will carry a
crew of about 15 people.

Florida Power is offering its
customers a number of options to
conserve electric energy, accord-
ing to Mike McDonald, local FPC
manager, as he spoke to the Ki-
wanis Club Tuesday at their noon
McDonald said the energy
saving and cost saving plans for
customers range from a level bill-
ling plan, which allows a custom-
er to pay an average bill 12
months of the year rather than
be faced with larger bills in high
use months, to interruptible
plans on major appliances and
fixtures at times of peak use.
The latter plan has the utility
installing a small radio transmit-
ter operated device in the home
which will cut off appliances
such as air conditioners, heaters,
dryers and other high use appli-
ances for a few minutes every
hour during hours of peak loads
during the day. "This keeps the
company from having to pur-
chase power during heavy load
hours," McDonald said.
He said the firm also installs

Catch the Skrit

load surge protectors to protect
appliances and fixtures from
damages from low voltage or
surges of power.

Two Great Dangers To
Your Eyes
There are many causes of blindness, from congenital
defects to accidents. But, two different degenerative
and progressive diseases are a great danger to persons
over 40. Senile cataracts cause about 13% and
Glaucoma about 14% of all blindness.

But cataracts can be safely removed and glaucoma
can be controlled, providing the diagnosis of either is
made and treatment begun in its early stages. The only
sure way to guard against these two dangers is to have
your eyes examined by a Doctor every two years after
the age of 40. It takes an expert to diagnose them.

Last Saturday the Sharks
travelled to Pace to take on the
state's number five ranked AA
team, coached by a former St.
Joe player, Buddy Smith.

The Sharks jumped on top 1-
0 in the first inning, but Pace tied
the game in the bottom of the
second, and went ahead 2-1 in
the bottom of the third.
Pace scored six in the fifth in-
ning but the Sharks bounced
back with five runs of their own
in the top of the sixth, led by a
three RBI homerun by center
fielder Reginald Larry, making
the score 8-6 Pace. Pace iced
the game in the bottom of the
sixth with a four run inning, seal-
ing a 12-6 loss for St. Joe.
Kevin Cox was the starting
pitcher for the Sharks, throwing
three innings before being re-
lieved by Bill Ramsey. J. J. Ray
took the mound in the sixth in-
ning for St. Joe.

Shark bats were led by Lar-
ry's homerun, two singles and
three RBIs. Others contributing
to the Sharks' eight hits were
Cris Revell, two singles with an
RBI; Kevin Cox, two for two with
two singles and an RBI; and Tim
Davis with a single.

The Sharks were on the road
again Tuesday, as they travelled
to Carrabelle and handed the
Green Devils a 12-2 loss in a
rain-shortened game.

A big six run second inning
was highlighted by Bobby Nobles'
two RBI triple. The Sharks
scored in every inning.
Bill Ramsey went the dis-
tance on the mound, pitching a
one hitter while walking one bat-
ter and striking out six.
The Shark bats collected 10
hits during the game. Tim Davis,
Kevin Cox, and Kyle Griffin each
had two singles; Bobby Nobles, a
triple; Jim Anderson a double;

Year In and Year Out You Will Do Well With

Hannon Insurance Agency, Inc.


Spring Is the
By Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Director
Lawn and garden activities in-
tensify with the arrival of spring.
One of the essential jobs is the
proper application of fertilizer, the
right kind and amount of fertilizer
for the various types of plants in
your landscape. Individual re-
quirements do vary.
The only way you can fertilize
plants properly is to know about
the different kinds of fertilizers
that are available, and which
ones are needed by your particu-
lar ornamental plants. Most of
our landscape contains an assort-
ment of trees, plants, shrubs,
and hedges. My information on
fertilizing ornamentals was pro-
vided by Extension Urban Horti-
culture Specialist Dr. Robert J.
The first landscape plant I'll
talk about are shrubs., Shrubs
should be given an all purpose
garden fertilizer, such as an 8-8-
8. Apply the fertilizer at the rate
of one-and-a-half to three pounds
per 100 square feet. For hedges,
the fertilizer should be spread
evenly along each side of the
plants. For other shrubs simply
broadcast in over the entire area.
In my next article I will in-
clude landscape trees and palms.
To calculate the correct amount
of fertilizer to use, you need to
know the tree diameter of the tree
or palm you're fertilizing. Keep in
mind that trees' diameters are
measured four feet up from the
soil surface. For trees with trunk
diameters of six inches or less,
apply three pounds of 8-8-8 ferti-
lizer for every inch of trunk diam-
eter. For trees with a trunk diam-
eter larger than six inches, use
five pounds of 8-8-8 fertilizer for
every inch of diameter. Very
small trees can be fertilized the
same as shrubs.
Palm trees can be fertilized
with either an 8-8-8 or a 10-10-
10 mixture. Apply the fertilizer at
the rate of one pound for each
inch of the trunk diameter. If
your palm is so small that it
doesn't have a woody trunk yet,
apply from two to eight ounces of
fertilizer. The mixture can be
broadcast under the palm's cano-
In addition to the fertilizers
that I have mentioned, which
provide the major plant nutri-
ents, all landscape plants can
benefit from an application of a

by Mr. Raffield, the board ap-
proved that James McLeod be
hired to replace David Hum-
phreys as NJROTC instructor at
Port St. Joe High School. The
board also approved the employ-
ment of Andrew D. Page as an as-
sistant NJROTC instructor at
Port St. Joe High School.
The board reviewed a request
from Gulf County Senior Citizens
Association to conduct Bingo
games, as a fund raising project,
In the facility currently being
used as the Senior Citizens Cen-
ter in Wewahitchka. After a dis-
cussion a motion was made by
Mr. Byrd, second by Mr. Redd to
approve this request. The vote
was unanimous.
On motion by Mr. Redd, sec-
ond by Mr. Hanlon, the board ap-
proved a bus route request within
the two mile limit in the Wewa-
hitchka area.
On motion by Mr. Redd, sec-
ond by Mr. Raffield, the board
voted unanimously to approve a
request from Wewahitchka High
School to assist with funding for
the exceptional student education
Spring trip.
There being no further busi-
ness, the meeting adjourned.

minor element mixture. Many of
the all-purpose fertilizers already
contain these minor elements. If
not, you'll need to add them. You
can do this by using an all-
purpose minor element mix, such
as "perk" or you can add the indi-
vidual elements that are needed.
These usually include magne-
sium sulfate, sulfur, and iron
sulfate. The all-purpose mixes
are more convenient to use, but
they are more expensive whatever

method you choose for adding
minor elements. Always follow
the manufacturer's recommended
rates of application.
Since iron deficiency is a very
common problem in Florida, you
may want to include chelated
(key-late-ed) iron in your spring
fertilizer program. Mix one ounce
of 12 percent chelated iron in 25
gallons of water. This will clear
up an iron deficiency in 100
square feet of your landscape.
It's quite common in Florida
for the pH to be too high, causing
the minor elements to be tied up
in forms that are unavailable to
plants. Sulfur or iron sulfate can
be used to lower the pH of alka-
line soils. For recommendations
of the use of such materials,
check with the garden center or
County Extension office.

Gospel Sing
The monthly community gos-
pel sing will be held at the United

Post Office
'We want your input about
how we can make, your postal
service better," Dennis Goegha-
gan .told the Rotary Club Thurs-
day of Iast week.
"Since I am going to try to
stick around for a long time, I am
interested in seeing that the post
office Improves and gives you the
type service you want and de-
serve," he said.
The postmaster said he al-
ready had plans to put in parcel
post post lockers in the post of-
fice lobby to make It more con-
venient for box holders to secure
parcel delivery.
He said the local office has al-
ready installed a carrier alert

This year the Coastal Clean-
up, which is sponsored by the
City Beautification Committee,
will begin Saturday, April 8. It
will begin by all interested per-
sons meeting at one of three sta-
tions set up for the convenience
of the local public. Last year
2,815 pieces of litter was collect-
ed in the Coastal Clean-up cam-
paign. Station One will be at the

thing about the property of his
patrons and report it if he sees
anything suspicious. "One carrier
has already kept a home from
suffering serious fire damage. He
heard a smoke alarm going off in-
side when apparently nobody was
at home, and called the fire de-
partment. Serious damage was
averted simply by a postal deliv-
ery person being alert," he point-
ed out.
Goeghagan said the post of-
fice encourages installation of ru-
ral type mail boxes by those who
receive home delivery. He went
on .to stress they were not re-
quired by the postal service.

Restaurant parking lot, Hwy. 98,

ghagan said. 'The boxes protect
your mail from the elements bet-

March 31 will be the last day
this year eligible Social Security
beneficiaries can sign up for Med-
icare medical insurance.
The medical insurance part of
Medicare helps pay the costs of
physicians' services, outpatient
hospital services, some prescrip-
tion drugs, and certain medical
items and services not covered by
Medicare hospital insurance. Be-
cause of changes to the Medicare
laws passed by Congress last
summer, Medicare medical insu-
rance coverage is more compre-
hensive than in the past.
For people who enroll now,
medical insurance protection
starts July 1. The basic premium
rate this year is $31.90 a month,

An interesting side note was
that the postal service, which op-
erates on its own revenues and
doesn't use any tax money, han-
dles some 160 billion pieces of
mail per year. Doesn't that figure
out to about one piece of mail for
each dollar added to the national
debt per year?"
