Liquor, Motor Fuel Tax Questions Are Settled


The Gulf County Commission suffered the
throes of childbirth Tuesday, as they agonized
over passage of a fuel tax ordinance and agreed
on reducing hours of Sunday operation by
businesses selling alcoholic beverages.
The fuel tax--64 per gallon for a period of
20 years---was approved Tuesdayevening after
two of the Commissioners suddenly felt differ-
ent on the matter. The alcohol sale hours for
Sunday were reduced on a 3-2 vote after an
hour of input from the audience Tuesday
morning. Sunday sales of alcoholic beverages
will now be prohibited between the hours of
1:00 a.m., and 1:00 p.m., local time, when the
ordinance change goes into effect.

In addition to the reduced sale hours,
the Commission voted unanimously to in-
clude a straw ballot question on the Novem-
ber, 1990, ballot to close Sunday sales alto-

gether.
The Commission took this route as a
compromise with the Gulf County minis-
ters, who had served notice of intent to se-
cure a petition to require a referendum on
the matter. Both sides have since learned
the only question a petition can call for is a
wet-dry election. There is no provision
made to regulate business on one or two
days a week via the referendum. The only
question which can be asked in such a man-
ner is total banning of sales or not.
The matter of whether or not to ban Sunday
morning sales developed into a full-blown de-
bate before it was all over.


Mrs. Marion Hough took the floor first and
filibustered about constitutional rights to sell
or drink as a person pleases and labeled the
group seeking some controls over the beverage
as a "mob" intent on denying those rights.
But Charles Clardy captured the support
and attention of the room full of participants
and spectators by following Mrs. Hough and
declaring himself as speaking for the victims.
'The victims have no rights and I'm asking for
justice," he said.
ClaIdy went on, with evident strong emo-
tions to explain how his 25-year-old son, on
the brink of a promising and rewarding life had
been killed by a drunk driver. He went on to


point out how other members of his family had
been killed and injured by drinking drivers.
"The man who killed my son never spent a
day in jail for his crime and is walking the
streets of Louisiana today," he said.
Dramatically holding up one finger, Clardy
said, 'You are allowed to kill one person while
driving drunk in Louisiana before you serve
time in jail. You are allowed to kill one person
while driving drunk in Florida before you serve
time in jail. It has happened to us and it can
happen to each of you," he said, waving his
pointing finger around the audience.
Clardy charged that his son may still be
alive if liquor sales were stopped at 9 or 10 at
night. "If a person just has to have a drink af-
ter this late in the day, he has a problem. I
don't care if you. drink it until it comes out
your ears, but ;& person who can't get enough
of the stuff during regular hours has a problem

Weekend

Burglaries

Reported
Port St. Joe Police Chief Carl
Richter said this week that a rash
of thefts hit the city over the past
week end, resulting in at least
one house being broken into and
two outside thefts in the same vi-
cinity of the city.
Chief Richter said a home
was entered by persons unknown
and two outboard motors stolen
in the area between Patton's Bay-
ou and Highway 98.
Chief Richter said a quantity
of jewelry, guns and coins were
taken from the home Friday af-
ternoon, while the occupants
were gone from home.
"Neighbors saw a strange
man, carrymga Cac,,Jeaigg thAe
home at about 5:00 p.m., get in
an older red car and head south
on Highway 98," Richter said.
- 'They called us immediately and
we responded quickly, but the
suspicious characters had al-
ready fled the scene. We have a
description of the car and the two
people inside on the state-wide
net, in addition to alerting all our
officers and the Gulf County
Sheriffs Department," Richter
said.
The two outboard motors
were removed from boats parked
in yards, Richter said. Both ap-
parently were taken during the
week end, although neither own-
er could exactly pin-point when
the thefts took place.
Chief Richter said quick ac-
tion by suspicious neighbors may
have kept other homes in the vi-
cinity from being burgled also.

Improving

Emergency

Services
Gulf Pines Hospital hosted a
luncheon Tuesday for the Gulf
County Commission and their
administrative assistant. The hos-
pital's administrator, Frank Bat-
tafarano, discussed some new
plans for the hospital and the
county's ambulance service,
which is operated by the hospital
under contract.
The new plans include up-
grading of the service from a ba-
sic life support system to an ad-
vanced life support system.
The new system should be in-
place and operating within the
coming year, Battafarano re-
vealed.
Larry Wells, county adminis-
trative assistant, told the group
that a new ambulance chassis to
serve South Gulf County has
been delivered to the company re-
sponsible for upgrading the
present ambulance module and
placing it aboard the new vehicle.
Completion date for this project
is not definite at this time, but an
effort is being made to expedite
the entire process.
Battafarano -also said that
currently, the hospital emergency
room has physician coverage 24
hours a day and he announced
the pending opening of a new
clinic, Gulf Pines Medical Clinic,
that will be located in the north-
east wing of the hospital. Physi-
cians staffing the clinic will be
Doctors Nancy Morgan and
James Cersosimo.
When the clinic is fully opera-
tional, the hospital will have 24
hours in-house physician cover-
age for the emergency room.


County A
The Gulf Cotfnty Commission
was assured by Major Tom All-
good of the Florida Department of
Corrections Tuesday, that the
county will have at least two
* 'work crews from the new Gulf Fo-
restry Camp, available for their
use almost all the time.
Major Allgood said the camp
was being geared up to field up to
nine 14-man work crews, with
seven of these crews dedicated to
other service., "At times, even
some of these crews may be avail-
able for use by Gulf County, as
"they finish other jobs," the DOC
official said.
John Reeves had asked for
one of the crews to be used exclu-
sively in clearing up the Dead


Murder Trial

Starts Today
Joseph Demotropoulos, 34, of
Overstreet, will go on trial this
morning in Gulf County Circuit
Court for a charge of second de-
gree murder.
Demotropoulos will face the
charge for the April 22 shooting
of Douglas Charles Kirby of Talla-
hassee, as the result of a bout of
drinking which degenerated into
an argument at Demotropoulos'
home on Wetappo Drive in Over-
street.
Demotropoulos will be prose-
cuted by Assistant State Attorney
Fred Witten and defended by at-
torneys John O'Brien and Waylon
e) Graham of Panama City.
Judge Phillip Knight will pre-
side over the trial.


assured of Use of 2 Work Crews by Forestry Camp


Man's Curve park site until that
site could be cleared, but the
Commission hesitated to make
this promise in light of other
needs throughout the county.
'We'll use the crew there as much
as we possibly 'can," chairman
Doug Birmingham said.
PERMIT RECEIVED
Engineer Ella Brown, with
Baskerville-Donovon Engineers,
said the county's. permit to con-
struct a compactor station and


Class III landfill in north Gulf
County had arrived and engi-
neers were nailing down last min-
ute details in preparation to be-
ginning construction.
Brown asked the Commission
for guidance in handling an ap-
parently wet area on the site. She
said, "It's not wet now, but indi-
cations are that it has been and
may be again at times." The ques-
tionable spot occupies several
acres in a corner of the 40 acre


tract.
Some of the Commissioners
expressed surprise there was low
spots in the site, but BDE repre-
sentatives said the site should
cause no problems in the future.
It just requires the attention of
DER to determine its use.
The Board reluctantly agreed
to ask DER to take a look at the
spot.

Heavy Line of Storms

Batter Gulf Coastline
A heavy line of storms lashed the coast of the Panhandle in
the Gulf County area last week, with tornado watches being
put out nearly every day of the week through Thursday.
Gulf County didn't get much out of the storm except a wel-
come rainfall, some heavy surf, high winds and more than
enough seaweed washed up on the shores of the county beach-
es.
According to The Star's own weather bureau, located in Em-
ily Simmons' back yard and kitchen,- Port St. Joe received 3.2
inches of rainfall during the week, from Tuesday through Sat-
urday. Flash floods plagued many parts of Bay, Walton,
Holmes, Washington and Jackson counties during the same
time frame.
While the surf was pounding the seawalls around Port St.
Joe, tornadoes were sweeping ashore in East Point, killing
three .members of one family and doing severe property dam-
age. Tornado watches were posted in the Gulf County area dur-
ing the period of stormy weather, but none materialized.
And, in case you were wondering, our weather bureau says
there was a total of five inches of rainfall during the month of
May.
Rainfall during tile two months has done much to alleviate
the drought.


with public hearings on one sub-
ject or the other, but hearings on
closing alleyways and a street
dominated the most hearings
scheduled.
As a result, the Board, almost
routinely agreed to close a short
dead end street and an alley
which joined the closed street at
its dead end. The neighbors, Lan-
nis Fox and Lewis Gardner were
in agreement that the street and
alley be closed, so there was no


problem.
The other question involved
an alleyway at St. Joe Beach.
Henry Cassani opposed the clos-
ing of an alley which dead-ends
at his property. A petition for fil-
ing had been requested by Tom
Harris, joined by other adjoining
property owners, James Curlee
and Jack Collier.
Supporters of both questions
had attorneys to represent them

THE STAR
PAGE TWO THURSDAY, JUNE 15,1989


Turkey

Some of the Panhandle Legislators are catching it in the
public eye, somewhere else in the state, for having supposedly
filled the several districts of this part of Florida with "turkeys",
which are local projects, funded with appropriations which
have not been initiated by a department or by the State Cabi-
net.
In other words, they have been labeled in the past as "pork
barrel", a label which has largely fallen from the Florida vocab-
ulary as it has been so long since the "hog and Hominy" section
of our state has received any serious state funding.
When the southern portion of the state was successful in
getting the districts reapportioned, they were also successful in
gaining control of the state pocketbook, a side-effect we're sure
they never thought of when they were trying so hard for reap-
portionment.
Out of the current session of the Legislature, even Gulf
County received some state money. Of course, we're receiving
three high-rise overpass bridges in our county, but these are so
long overdue they can in no manner be labeled "pork barrel".
Gulf County will receive some $250,000 in funds to estab-
lish the first portion of the state's new commercial spaceport
rocket launch site. Not because we have been such good little
citizens, but because we are the only place in Florida the rock-
ets can be shot off safely, without endangering other populated
areas down range.
You say that isn't much money, and we agree. Actually, oth-
er areas in Florida, namely colleges and universities, will re-
ceive nearly $1 million to use as expenses for using the launch
site here at Cape San Blas. So, our good fortune has been
spread over much of the state as well.
Just you wait, though. There are other expenditures to
come, public and private, which we understand will make the
initial investment pale in significance.
Even though our largess from the Legislature was small po-
tatoes in the report, we'll take it and be glad to get it. It's so sel-
dom any public money lands here, that we could welcome it if
only for the novelty of the situation.



Why English?

It looks as if we have won the cold war; not by placing
troops throughout the globe, not by increasing our nuclear ca-
pability, not by building more tanks or more battleships, and
not by political maneuverings. It looks as if we have won the
cold war because we have what the world and its people want
most-freedom and enough to eat.
In other words, it appears as if we have won the cold war in
spite of our own bungling or failures in the diplomatic field.
Suddenly, everyone in the world is clamoring to be like we
are. Demonstrations all around the globe are organizing to
protest their current condition and demand democracy, human
rights, fair treatment from their leaders. All of this is very basic
to us and hardly is given a second thought. Instead our demon-
stratofs are marching, asking the government to Pare for them
from the cradle to the grave; things these totalitarian govern-
ments had promised their subjects and didn't or couldn't deliv-
er.
Last week's issue of Time magazine was interesting to us in
demonstrating this. state of the desires of people all over the
world. In the latest issue, the magazine had a two page spread
of photographs, showing demonstrations in Burma, West Ger-
many, West Bank in the Middle East, Panama, China and So-
viet Georgia.
All of the pictures showed groups with their signs held aloft,
calling for democracy, peace, or civil defiance of their oppres-
sive governments. The Panamanians, of course, wanted us to
take care of our own business [of which we think the Panama
Canal is a part].
The unusual thing about these two pages of pictures, all
taken in foreign lands, was that all the signs of protest were
printed in English! Some of the pictures, we could understand;
but China? Burma? the Soviet? It appears as if the people do-
ing the protesting are organizing to do their protesting in a
manner which will attract our attention and maybe draw a lit-
tle help. Or maybe, the signs are designed to let us know they
no longer are in support of their style of government.
Whatever the reason,we thought it interesting that all these
signs, from various nations, should all, without exception, be
printed in English. That can't mean something bad for us!


\Hunker Down with Kes



Mom, I Made This Story Up!


It didn't take a Phi Beta Kap-
pa to see that we were in serious
trouble. Mr. Harris' near about
brand new '61 Oldsmobile was
sitting crossways in the clay pit
road, the front right tire buried to
the hub cap in the ditch. The rear
end was just about in the ditch
on the other side. I believe a '61
Olds was the longest car ever
made.
"Anybody hurt?" I think it
was Ruth Ann from the back
seat. We had bounced around
like popping corn while Jim Bob
drove us from one ditch to the
other for what seemed like thirty
minutes but actually lasted for
only a few seconds.. It sure don't
take long to-really mess up. Of
course, if you want to get techni-
cal, the real mess up probably oc-
curred about. an hour earlier
when we decided to borrow Jim
Bob's father's car. It seemed like
a good idea at the time (How
many times have I said that over
the years.) Shucks, Jim Bob was
almost sixteen and his parents


were at the community sing over
at Greenfield. We'd have the car
back in plenty of time.
"Not yet!' We all knew what
Jim Bob meant. No way our par-
ents weren't going to find out
about this! I think I would be
what Captain Midnight called an
"accessory after the fact" or since
I was with Jim Bob when he
backed the car out of his drive-
way, I might be an "accessory
during the fact."
I could hear my Father now.
"Son, I'm not whipping you and
putting you on restriction for the
next 25 years because you. stole
Mr. Harris' car and then took part
in running it off the road, tearing
it up and near about. killing
somebody. No, son, I'm whipping
you and putting you on restric-
tion for 25 years for being so stu-
pid."
'We're lost! We're doomed!
We're stuck way out here and no
one will ever find us. We'll be like
that flyer, Amelia Ear-heart. I'll
never see ..."


"Oh. shut up Mary E. We're
not lost. Mr. John Charles Sasser
Just lives a couple of miles over
that ridge. If we can't get this
thing unstuck, we'll walk out."
Yogi was a'setting Mary E.
straight while he surveyed just
how stuck we were. "If we all got
down in the ditch and pushed, we
might just be able to get it out."
All of us except Mary E. wad-
ed into the ankle deep mud and
pushed and lifted like crazy. The
car didn't budge. That Olds must
weighed seven tons. Jim Bob got
in, cranked up, put that thing in
reverse, gunned it like crazy while
we pushed with all our might.
Mud was flying, the front wheels
were spinning, LaRenda fell face
down in the ditch but the car
didn't move an inch.
We set down and went over
our options. It was Jim Bob's car.
The rest of us could just ease
back to the house and act sur-
prised tomorrow when we "heard"
what had happened to Jim Bob.
What if someone had been hurt?

Or even killed. We reckoned if one
of us had a'died, there'd be so
much sympathy they'd forget
about punishing us. What if
someone stole the car? Yeah, we
could tell them the Butch Caven-
dish gang made off with the car
and we had trailed them to the
clay pit road. We set up a road
block, stopped the car but Butch
and the boys made their escape
before we could apprehend them.
We could catch the midnight bus
to Memphis, find Sun Records
and become rock and roll singers
-like Elvis.
Well, we couldn't leave Jim
Bob, the Lone Ranger had already
caught Butch Cavendish and not
any of us could sing a lick. That

to have to die. I was fixing to

- .ETAOIN SHRDLU BY: WESLEY R. RAMSEY I


After 43 Years of Waiting, We Finally Got Around to It


AFTER 43 YEARS, we finally
did it. Our graduating class of
1946 had its first reunion over
the past week end and everyone
wanted to know, why had we
waited so long to get back togeth-
er?-
We had five, out of a graduat-
ing class of 24, who couldn't
come for one reason or another.
A4I those who didn't come had a
good excuse except for one. That
one just chose not to come. One
was in a hospital receiving treat-
nient for cancer. The rest of us all
showed up and had a great time.
Those class members came
front as far away as Seattle,
Washington and as close as Park-
er. The real sad thing about the
whole thing was that, with few
exceptions, that was the first
time many of us had seen the


other classmates since the day
we graduated back in 1946.
There are seven of those class
members who still live here in
Port St. Joe. The seven of us
couldn't get over how well we had
weathered the years and how
some of those who had moved off
had aged. That many years will
cause one to change, but those
who still live in Port St. Joe
seemed to have changed the least
of all. Could there be a reason for
that?

THE GRADUATING class of
1945 met with us for our reun-
ion. There was only 16 in that
class when they matriculated
through the halls of Port St. Joe
High School. Only five of those
were boys. The remainder had
enlisted in the armed forces, with
World War II at its height about
that time. They graduated in
June and the atomic bomb was


dropped on Japan In August of
that year. ending the war.
Still, four of their five boys
were present, along with one who
had gone off to military school for
his senior year. Four of the girls
showed up to join the festivities.,
FESTIVITIES, WHEN YOU
have been out of high school for
43 or 44 years, take on a differ-
ent definition than they carry
when you have been graduated
only 10 or even 20 years.
Festivities, to us, was spend-
ing two evenings just visiting and'
getting to know one another
again. We all hit the front door
talking to and greeting one an-
other Friday afternoon about
5:00 p.m., and we left Saturday .
evening around 10:00 p.m., still '
talking to one another and vow-
ing to get together again .
sooner than 43 years from now.
You might wonder what we
could find to talk about all that


time, but believe me, there was
no shortage of conversation or
things to talk about. When you
haven't seen someone for 43
years, there's a lot of catching up
to do.
WENDELL CAMPBELL, Port
St. Joe's competent answer to
Don Rickles, gave us one of his
monologues Friday night, by
comparing some of the class
members with their pictures and
identifications in the 1946 issue
of The Monument, doing an excel-
lent job of identifying Dan Cole-
man, solely from his reputation.
Wendell said, "I could have
picked you out of any old crowd!"
Wendell was kind to Donald
Linton, simply because they both
played fullback on their football
teams. Old Don has a "full front"
these days, to complement his
"fullback" of former days.
Jack Mahon, one of the few
still working, is a school teacher


up In Columbus. Georgia and
still has the loudest mouth east
of the Mississippi. We put that
loud mouth to good use, however.
Every time we wanted to get the
attention of the group, all we had
to do was go to Jack and say,
"Quiet 'em down, Jack." He could
be heard over everyone and Tom
Parker's disc player belting out
tunes of the '40's.
And, that's the way we oper-
ated.
WE HAD FOUR school teach-
ers come out of our group. That
may be because we "raised" our
own teachers back when we were
going to school.
Two of our former teachers
were present at the affair Satur-
day evening. There was Catherine
Nix of Panama City and Nonnie
Lee [Elkins] Zeigler of Havana.
Back when we were going to
school, they weren't much older
than their students and even to-


day. they could blend in our
group and never be noticed as
from a different age.
Miss Nonnie was three years
older than most of us were back
in 1946 and Miss Nix was just
about two years older than Miss
Nonnie.
They both spoke to us briefly
Saturday night, telling us how
scared they had been in their po-
sitions back in 1946 and how we
had helped them begin their bud-
ding careers by being model stu-
dents, all.
I felt they were telling the
truth the entire evening. Miss Nix
even said she came to Port St.
Joe for the big money. She
earned $800 a year in Georgia
the year before and came here to
Port St. Joe for $1200 a year.
Miss Elkins had been offered
$600 in Georgia, but came here
for the $1200.
We all had a good time .

When Were You Born?
Recently I was asked to speak at a class reunion. It was the
1946 Port St. Joe High School graduating class and it was their
first reunion, ever.
After the reunion, I started thinking; 1946 was a long time
ago. That was one year after WW II ended, four years before it
was 1950 and one year before I entered the first grade.
If my calculations are correct, all of these graduates were*
born before 1935, although some of the women didn't look like
it.
I remembered reading a paper someone. sent me about the
changes and innovations that have transpired since 1935, so I
decided to find it and enlighten some of you younger people on
progress that has been made in your short lifetime.
Did you know that before 1935 there was no television? This
was also before penicillin, birth control pills, polio shots, antibi-
otics and frisbees.
These people were born before radar, credit cards and ball
point pens. Time-sharing meant togetherness, not condomin-
iums: a chip meant a piece of wood; hardware'meant hardware
and software wasn't even a word. In those days bunnies were
small rabbits and rabbits were not Volkswagens.
When they were in college, pizzas. Cheerios, frozen orange
juice, instant coffee and McDonald's were unheard of.
It was a time before FM radio, tape recorders, electric type-
writers, word processors, Muzak, electronic music and disco
dancing. There were no pantyhose and drip-dry clothes. Ice
makers and dishwashers, clothes dryers, freezers and electric
blankets were not on the market at this time.
It was also a time before men wore long hair and earrings
and women wore tuxedos. These people even got married first
and then lived together. We might say they were a little quaint.
In those days, cigarette smoking was fashionable, but grass
was mowed, coke was a soft drink and pot was a container to
cook in.
They were before vending machines, Jet planes, helicopters
and interstate highways. In 1935 "Made in Japan" meant junk
and the term "making out" referred to how one did on an exam.
Back then, there were five-and-ten cent stores where one
could actually buy things for a nickel or a dime. For a nickel
they. could make a phone call, buy a Coke or buy enough
stamps to mail one letter and two postcards. A new Chevy coupe
cost $600 but who could afford that in 1935? Nobody, and it's a
pity because gas was 11 cents a gallon.
Finally, the difference between the sexes had been discov-
ered, but there were no sex changes. The poor people just made
do with what they had.
The class reunion was a barrel of fun and I was honored to
be there, but, Holy Marshmallowsl, I suddenly realized I was al-
most one of them

"My older brother, Leon, climbed
out of the passenger side. They
were going down to the clay pits
for a swim. You know how your
older brother is always making
fun of you and beating on you
and just generally making life
miserable for you? They just wait
for you to get into a "fix" so they
pan point out how dumb you are.
Then they kind'a remind you of it
for the rest of your life. You know
what I mean? I got ready for Leon

Well sir, a strange thing hap-

Olds, one look at nine frightened
15-year-old muddy idiots, real-

and without a word went to work
like a house on fire. He got a
shovel and dug out from under-
neath the front wheel. Nicky Joe
pulled up close to the rear end of
the Olds and tied a rope to the
back bumper. Leon put all nine of
us In the trunk to add "weight
where it was needed." He got into
the Olds, put it in reverse and
didn't gun it like Jim Bob-he
eased it back while Nicky Joe
pulled with the pickup. They got
us out of the ditch in no time.
Leon, without a comment or
question as to how we got into
such a predicament, drove us to
Nicky Joe's grandfather's, and
helped us wash Mr. Harris's car.
There wasn't a scrape or a dent
on that thing. It was built like a
Sherman tank. He drove it back

A Person Who Cares


Dear Editor:
It is truly amazing to me to
hear or to read how some folks
see a preacher. Some see us as
condeming or bringing down the
wrath of God upon fun-seeking .
people. Truly amazing, for some
people know better. .knowing
that the preacher has gone into a
filthy bar to get a wife's husband,
or has taken a drunk to Detox, or
gone to the Jail to minister to a
troubled person. Not ONE time
have I ever condemned them in
person, nor from the pulpit. The
big question is, "Why not?". Be-
cause, I know the big problem. .
."How about my brother?". .do I
' really care about the unborn
child of a drinking mother, do I
REALLY care about the child or
grandparents dead as a result of
drunkenness?
A ,problem in our society is
that we would rather commit sui-
t cide than prohibit a person from
Y hurting himself or others, so,.
therefore we allow drunkenness
by pregnant mothers, drunkehn-
ness in'the workplace, and the re-
suits .ar '. STAGGERING.
L <.;children being-bomrnwith low IQ

e ple were killed by drunk drivers
t than were killed in Vietnam dur-
ing the same period. In the work-
s place, men and women are tired
t of taking up the slack. The result


is low profits, less happiness, and
the destruction of the American
economy.
For one, I believe in the Bible,
and the Bible says I am my broth-
er's keeper. I take drunks to De-
tox. I sit for hours talking with
them. I have served for many
years on the PAC board, and I see
the need for ACTION. Education,
yes, but ACTION. We need laws to
keep us from hurting ourselves.
Isn't that the reason we have the

a preacher does not have the
right to get involved in politics is
to erase a lot of history. Thomas
Jefferson got elected to Congress

his support behind Jefferson.

courage a lot more preachers to

present time is the re-paving of
C-30 to the Franklin County line.
Chairman Doug Birmingham
advised the Board Tuesday that
six cents for 20 years would pro-
vide enough money to give each
of the cities their agreed percent-
age and pave C-30. Birmingham.
was in favor of trying to get the
two cities in the county to reduce
their.claims to some of the mon-
ey. Port St. Joe is to get 30 per-
cent and Wewahitchka is to re-
ceive 20 percent.
Birmingham remarked, 'We're
Just taxing to pave C-30 and to
provide the two cities funds if we
go ahead with plans to bond." He
seemed to be uncomfortable with
that.
That isn't the entire picture,
however, as the county has a
bond issue which will be paid off
in 1994, which can be re-bonded
for more road paving.
Raymond Lopez of St. Joe
Beach offered the only audience
input at the final hearing for the
fuel tax question Tuesday after-
noon, saying he favored the tax,
but he would like to see the Com-
mission make some regulations
for use of the roads to prevent
their damage by heavy loaded ve-
hicles.
Lopez especially came down.
on heavy equipment, including
county equipment used to repair
roads.
When it came motion-making
time, Commissioner Don Parker


moved the county establish the
six cent tax rate for a period of 20
years. Commissioner Ed Creamer
quickly seconded the motion and
then the discussion over the
bonding period started.
Chairman Doug Birmingham
noted the levy wouldn't do the
county as a whole much good, if
the Commission bonded the fund
to do road paving. His estimates
were that the County would wind
up with not much more than
$1.5 million of usable money.
The remainder would go to pay
interest on the issue. 'This won't
pave much more than C-30 he
observed, suggesting the board
increase the tax period to 30
years, rather than 20.
Commissioner Jimmy- Gort-
man refused to go along, saying,
"It makes me sick to my stomach
to think of putting this tax on the
people of Gulf County for 30
years!"
Creamer remarked, "Basical-
ly, what we're saying here is we're
passing a gas tax for C-30 and
the cities in the county." ;
Birmingham remarked, '"The
cities will come out well and C-30
will come out well, but the rest of
the county is not going to come
out so well."
Such misgivings by Birming-
ham and Gortman caused them
to cast the only two "nay" votes
when the tax matter finally came
to. a vote Tuesday evening at
7:M0.


Remembers Momma, Too


Dear Wesley,
I Just read your ETAOIN
SHRDLU article on the subject of
your mamma. I too remember
your mamma. The occasion was
the first time I ever used a tele-
phone. I was about 10 years old.
We lived in a house on Long Ave-
nue that obliquely Joined your
family's property. We did not
have a telephone.' For some rea-
son I needed to call my stepmam-
ma, who at the time, worked for
Mr. Clarence. Pridgeon at the
Quality Grocery Store. I hap-
pened to barge in on your family
during your supper hour. You
boys were all sitting around the
dinner table, your mamma con-
sented to me using the telephone


which sat on a small round table
in the corner of your dining
room.
I picked up the phone and
Mrs. Holiday said "number
please". I said, "thirty". You boys
- began to giggle, but one quick
glance from your mamma quelled
the hilarity. Mrs. Holiday said
"what number?" and I said,
again, "thirty". She said, "oh, you
mean three oh". and I said
yes'em".
I completed my call and man-
aged to escape with some small
amount of dignity, thanks to
'your mamma".

Rotary District Governor Walter Fraun-
heim of Tallahassee, told the Rotarians
and their wives Thursday night that the lo-
cal club has been a major contributor to
the worldwide war against poliomyelitis,
the current project of Rotary International.
Rotarians have pledged themselves to erad-
icate polio in the world by the year 2000.
Fraunheim said it now appears as if po-
lio will be erased from the Latin American
nations by 1993, with Rotary primarily re-
sponsible for getting the job done.
Part of the fight is financed by individu- .
. al Rotarians, who join the ranks of the-
Paul Harris Fellow membership, contribut-
ing $1,000 toward the fight against polio.
Thursday, District Governor Fraunheim pre-
sented Paul Harris fellowship awards to
Rotarians, Dick Lamberson, shown at left
with his wife Jean; John Miller, with his


wife Margie and J. Lamar Miller, shown re-
ceiving his award from Gov. Fraunheim,
with his wife Hildreth. J. L. Miller is al-
ready a Paul Harris Fellow, but has applied
for his second membership.
Bill Crawford, local club chairman for
the project, said the club has contributed
$8,000 to the polio project. "At the current
rate, that amount of money will save 32
lives, as well as prevent the crippling of
thousands of children.
Rotarian Jim McNeill, owner of the Raw
.Bar, contributed donations to pay for 847
doses of polio vaccine. The Raw Bar con-
tributes enough money to purchase vaccine
for one child with each dozen raw oysters
sold through their business.
The presentations were made at the an-
nual Ladies Night observance of the club,
held at Butler's Restaurant Thursday.

Cook Skewered Sirloin Outdoors


Cooking outdoors can be a relax-
ing and enjoyable way to spehid the
end of a hectic work day. Especially
when you prepare a convenient
entree like Sirloin I Ribbons and
Pineapple Chunks. It's a light, yet
nutritious and satisfying dish that's
quick and easy to prepare on an out-
door grill.
Sirloin steak is always a popular
choice when cooking outdoors. But
instead of serving it ad a whole steak,
try slicing it into 1?8 to 1/4-inch
strips. Marinate to add flavor in the
20 minutes it takes tri heat charcoal
briquettes. Then thread the beef
strips, weaving them back and forth
like a ribbon, on presdaked skewers.
Alternate the strips ;with fresh or
canned pineapple chunks.
Just add a tossed salad and a loaf
of crusty bread for ja convenient,
low-calorie meal. A single serving
is only 236 calories!!

Robert Trammell, A


Down-Home


Law


Maker with Roots


by David Coley
Some people perceive a state
legislator as an important person
who. should command a great
deal of respect.
Indeed, being a lawmaker is
an extremely important job, but
State Representative Robert
Trammell, D-Marianna, considers
himself to be a down-home sort of
guy who has never forgotten his
upbringing.
"My family operated a small
store in Blountstown," Trammell
recalled of his boyhood.
"Those were hard times in
those days. But in spite of what
others had or didn't have my
mother and father raised us to
treat everybody the same."
Trammell is currently serving
the first year of his second term
(third year) in office, representing
six counties including the east-
ern portion of Jackson County.
Though he is a relative new-
comer in state politics he has
commanded the respect of his
colleagues and is one of only two
or three Northwest Florida law-
makers to be appointed to a com-
mittee chairmanship a powerful
committee at that.
"Robert (Trammell) has dis-
played a great deal of leadership,"
said House Speaker Tom Gustaf-

son, the man who appointed him
to head the House Judiciary
Committee. "Obviously I put a lot
of faith in him to appoint him to
such a position."
Ask any lawmaker, lobbyist
or staff member in the state capi-
tol what they think of the lawyer
from Marianna and you'll be
hard-pressed to get a negative an-
swer. For Trammell, a native of
Calhoun County with strong
bloodties to Jackson County, has
made many friends in the House
halls.
"A lot of my friendships here
are renewed," Trammell said from
his. fourth floor office of the
House building. "I participated in
sports ever since I was in the fifth
or sixth grade. I made a lot of
friends that way."
Trammell's friendships in Tal-
lahassee play a big part in his
success in Tallahassee, but the
43-year old coach-turned-lawyer
attributed his success to hard
work and a lot of luck.
"Things have just fallen into
place," Trammell said. "Of course,
I've had a lot of help from Rep.
Sam Mitchell and Sen. Pat Thom-
as." One -of Trammell's most re-
cent accomplishments is playing
a strong role in getting the Dozier
School for Boys facility placed on
the House of Representative's
budget.
As many will recall, Governor
Bob Martinez thought it more ec-
onomical to convert the 88-year
old boy's school to a women's
prison.
"It was hard, but we (Tram-
mell, Mitchell and Thomas) were
able to get it funded," Trammell


said after the victory.
Though. Trammell credits
Mitchell and Thomas for getting
the Dozier measure funded, Sen-
ate President Bob Crawford
praised Trammell for his efforts.
"Robert Trammell is to be
commended for his hard work in
getting Dozier funded,"-Crawford
said recently. "He carries a lot of
power in Tallahassee."
Crawford added that Tram-
mell was going to be a force to
reckon with in the future.
"He can command his politi-
cal future," Crawford said. "What-
ever he wants to achieve he'll be
able to accomplish it."
Trammell admits he has a
few goals set for himself but a
quick look at his family lineage
and you'll find he's just following
the footsteps of his ancestors.
He is a fifth generation state
representative with great-uncles
serving the state from as far away
as Polk County, but as close as
Calhoun County.
His great-uncle Park Monroe
Trammell served the House of
Representatives in 1903; the Sen-
ate in 1905 and was president of
the Senate in 1907; was attorney
general from 1913 to 1917; and
governor from 1917 to 1936.
"He comes from good stock,"
said former U.S. Senator Lawton
Chiles.
Chiles agrees with Sen. Craw-
ford about Trammell's future as a
lawmaker: "Whatever he wants
he'll be able to get it."
Before becoming an attorney
and a legislator, Trammell spent
many years as a major college
basketball coach and administra-
tor, serving stints at Leon High
School, Florida State University
and University of Mississippi. At
the University of South Alabama,
he served as a coach and assist-
ant athletic director,
His wife, the former Kay Sell-
ers, says there's not a whole lot of
difference in holding public. office
and coaching a basketball team.
'The hours are the same,"
she concedes. "Rob spends un-
told hours as a lawmaker; he did
when he was a coach. When he
was recruiting, he waq gone from
home all of the time and he's
gone from home a lot now espe-
cially during the session."
But don't think Kay Trammell
does not approve of what her
husband of 23 years does.
"I'm very proud of him," she
says. "I think he's done a good
Job for the people of his district."
Perhaps the best thing of all,
according to Kay, is she and their
two children don't spend a lot of
time courtside.
'You wouldn't believe the
number of basketball games I at-
tended," she said laughing.
Kay Trammell is a native of
Jackson County and graduate
from Campbellton High School,
but won't say exactly when.
"Let's Just say I'm younger
than Rob."
The two met at Chipola Jun-
ior College where he was playing
basketball.
"She's been the best thing in

my life," Trammell said. of his
wife.
They have two children,
Meredith a student at Chipola
Jr. College and Doug a fresh-
man at Marianna High School.
After earning his A.A. degree
from Chipola in 1966, Trammell
went to Florida State University
where he graduated with a B.S.
in 1968 and his master's in 1970.
At the University of Mississippi,
he received his juris doctorate in
1979.
In 1980, he returned to Jack-
son County to establish his -cur-
rent law practice. He served as
assistant public defender for the
14th Judicial Circuit until his
election in 1986.
Though Trammell has not
conceded publicly what his politi-
cal. goals are, one thing comes
home time and time again, Robert
Trammell is destined for a bright
future.
As lobbyist Harry Landrum
says: "He's the star of the future."

The local Senior Citizens As-

the unfortunate families of the
Eastpoint area which lost every-
thing last week due to the devas-
tation of several tornadoes in the
area.
There were 19 families which

that you bring your donations to
either your church or to the Sen-

Kiwanians See Slides of Orient Tour


Kiwanian Rev. Elmer Braden
presented the program to his
club Tuesday at noon, showing a
very interesting slide presenta-
tion from the Orient.
Rev. Braden visited several of
the Oriental nations in 1984 and
toured much of the Buddhist
worshipping nations, inspecting
many of their temples and other
architectural marvels of that part
of the world.
Braden's slides included
scenes from Thailand, Nepal, In-
dia, Singapore and Hong Kong.
.Several of the nations, which
offer only the barest of living for
their'people, also have some. of
the richest and architecturally in-
tricate buildings in the world,
built to the god Buddha.
Among Braden's pictures
were several views of the Taj Ma-
hal, said to be one of the most
beautiful buildings in the world.
The building was built by a ruler
in memory of his wife who had
died, and is now one of the won-
ders of the world.
Braden's slides, also showed
some of the most poverty stricken
areas of the Oriental world, as
