in an open-air stockade, determining which ones can be

Tire Re-Cycling Operation Flourishing
For once, Gulf County was partially prepared when a new
law became effective for handling a particular solid waste
This time, it was new rules going into effect for the han-
dling of old discarded auto and truck tires. A new Florida law
became effective July 1 for disposal of this particular waste
The new law requires tire sale outlets to begin collecting
50 cents for every new tire sold, to help pay for its trashing
costs when that tire is worn out. On January 1, this trashing
cost will become twice as expensive, when the fee per tire is
increased to $1.00.
Even though the agency in charge of properly disposing of
solid waste in Gulf County isn't involved in any manner in
this operation, a firm now in business here in Port-St. Joe is
poised to take old tires, re-cycling them into usable products,
or preparing them for solid waste disposal.
This firm is apparently making a profit from the business
of doing something with what others do not want, because the
firm has been in business here for several months now, and
appears to be expanding in its product. According to the own-
er-manager, Otis Hoffman, "the business is rolling right
COLLECTS OLD TIRES
The firm, TDS, operates a tire salvage and reclamation de-
pot in Ward Ridge on the old Tapper Construction Company
site, utilizing the fenced in equipment yard and the machinery
repair buildings to operate their business, which handles
thousands of used and worn out tires each and every week.
Hoffman said his trucks collect old discarded tires in a
300 mile radius of Port St. Joe. "Sometimes we have to pay for
the tires, and sometimes, they pay us to haul them off," Hoff-
TDS's trucks bring at least one truck or trailer load of tires
into their storage area each and every day. "If we have a load
of automobile tires, we'll bring in about 1,200 in a load. If
they're truck tires, we will have a load of from 5-700," Hoff-
After the tires are delivered to the Port St. Joe storage
point they are graded and separated, with the useable tires
sold to recappers or as used tires. Those which are not usea-
ble are prepared for landfill areas.
TDS PREPARED FOR REGULATIONS
Hoffman said he can have up to 1,000 tires in his collec-
tfon yard before he must cover them to prevent water from
collecting in the cavities and providing a mosquito breeding
place. 'We have well over 1,000 tires on the yard now, but we
won't have by the end of the month," he said.
Presently, TDS is grading unusable tires to be used in a
fishing reef in the Gulf of Mexico. 'We have a contract with
Bill Koran of Captain Black's Marina to furnish him a load of
tires for the fishing reef. He has arranged for a barge to trans-
port them, which should be in Port St. Joe in a short while,"
Hoffman sees a growing demand for the service his busi-

wide in a 48-hour period.
The operation was aimed pri-

Sheriff Harrison said 13 of
the arrests, reported state-
wide, were made here in Gulf
County. "We made two arrests
in North Port St. Joe and 11 in

our part of the operation."
Gulf County was in Zone 1 of
the state operation, which was
coordinated by the Florida Sher-

passed all of the Panhandle be-
tween Monticello and Pensacola,
involving 16 counties. "Sheriff

A Strong Chamber Is Profitable
"If you're trying to run a Chamber of
Commerce with part time help, and a
$5,000 or $6,000 budget, you're just fool-
ing yourself," 0. L. Ellis, executive director
of the Washington County Chamber of
Commerce told an early morning group of
Chamber supporters here last Wednesday.
"There is only one way to have a viable
Chamber of Commerce which gets things
done," Ellis, said. 'You must have a pro-
gram of what you're trying to accomplish,
committees and volunteers, adequate
funding and a faithful staff. Add that to a
lot of patience and you're on the way to
getting things accomplished for your com-
munity," he said.
The speaker then went on to tell of the
10-year success story of the Washington
County Chamber which has been success-
ful in bringing jobs to Chipley and in im-
proving the quality of life for residents who
were already living there.
NEED ADEQUATE FINANCING
'We started with a budget of $28,000,
subscribed wholly by the few members we
had. Now, we have 375 members, a bud-
get of nearly $100,000 a year and the fi-
nancial support of the City of Chipley and
the county. We're getting things done," he
The Chipley Chamber's main project
has been the establishment of an industri-
al park, where land has been set aside,
priced and services provided. 'When some-
one becomes interested in your communi-
ty for a location, he wants to know how
much for a certain piece of land and If ser-
vices are in place."
The speaker said the creation of an in-
dustrial park and furnishing it with water,
sewer and power, was the thing which
started Chipley to attracting new jobs.
'When a firm expresses an interest in
you, he is looking for a reason not to
come. He has 15 possible locations on his
list and when he calls you, he is trying to
determine why he should cross your name
off the list. If you can't answer his ques-
tions immediately, you'll be dropped," the
John Littleton, manager of West Point
Pepperel, an industrial firm which came to
Chipley through Chamber efforts, was
with Ellis and gave a little personal testi-
mony to the truth of Ellis's claims in at-
tracting the firm to Chipley.
"Now we're a part of the community
and doing our part in improving the living
standard. We were looking for a commu-
nity which wanted us, had transportation,
a potential work force, a positive attitude
and a willingness to help. We found that
in Chipley and we're happy there," he said.
Ellis said that in addition to a search
for more jobs in Chipley, the Chamber is
actively engaged in securing a new library
for the community and the Main Street
program, which is involved in fixing up the

Russell Baker of the New York Times was really defending.
Pete Rose from the charges being placed against him, saying
the United States and baseball is being a hypocrite for expect-
ing Rose to refrain from gambling like it is something wrong to
do. What he wound up doing in a column the other day was ac-
cusing the people of the nation of having a double standard
and an eroding sense of decency.
Before we go much farther, let us say that if Pete Rose is
guilty of half of what he is being charged with, he ought to be
hustled out of baseball forever. On the other hand, old Charlie
Hustle can't be the only one to blame for his predicament,
caused by betting on sports.
They call it gambling, still, even though in most parts of the
country, if it Is done in the right places, it is perfectly legiti-
mate, even though we think it is still wrong.
Baker harkened back to the year 1919 when another base-
ball player bet on baseball and was immediately hustled out of
the sport- in disgrace and no questions asked or posed .about
the appropriateness of the punishment. Today, Rose has; about
as many defenders as he has detractors. Many people in high,
places, espousing high morals, are defending his actions.
In 1919, it was the gangster element which was running the
betting games. Today, it is various governments in our country
sponsoring, operating, supporting, condoning, licensing and
regulating various forms of gambling in most of the states in
And, these same people are pointing accusing fingers at
Pete Rose. Old Pete has grown up in a society which has been
getting softer toward gambling--even legal gambling-by the
Here in Florida, we bet on horses, dogs, Jai-Lai players,
numbers, you name it. A man who likes gambling action has
his choice of doing it on. land or on sea; in the comfort of his
home, at the corner convenience store, in air-conditioned are-
nas or at exciting and entertaining arenas and tracks.
The biggest part of this gambling is done, saying we are fi-
nancing schools with our "fun". What are our kids going to
think when they graduate from schools partially paid for by
gambling income? It's OK for me to gamble too?.
Pete Roses are made, not born, and we're making them by
the thousands every day in our schools, with the example we're
setting for our children.
Set Us Thinking
After having a little while to think it over and witnessing the
reactions to his actions, we have come to the conclusion that
we are glad that fellow Johnson burned the American Flag in
Dallas a while back.
We're sad for Mr. Johnson and his state of mind and his
lack of appreciation for all his country has done for him, but
we're glad of the reaction his burning of the Flag caused.
It has been a long time since the people of America have
been so galvanized into a patriotic fervor as they were by John-
son's burning of that lone American Flag. The American Flag is
a symbol of our nation and is designed to 'galvanize us into a
solid nation of people to follow and support the government it
In recent months or years, there have been a lot of us
"burning flags" in one way or another. Most of us have not ac-
tually stuck a match to one of the red, white and blue banners,
but we have been a burner in more subtle but just as damag-
ing ways. Mostly, we have low-rated our country and its system
just because some leaders aren't doing just the things we think
they should be doing.
The presence of our Flag guarantees that we can criticize all
we want to and nobody will hunt us up and clap us in jail for
it, or execute us for "disturbing the peace and causing a riot",
such as a few thousand pitiful Chinese received just recently.
That one reason alone is reason enough to support, protect
and revere our American Flag. It is the symbol of freedom ...
even the freedom to bum the banner without fear of execution
as such action would surely result in, in China.
Americans all over the nation have expressed a support for
our Flag in the past two weeks like we haven't seen in a long
time. It's almost like they suddenly realized the Flag is there
and just what it stands for. There's nothing wrong with that.
We're glad to see some little bit of patriotism being reborn,
even if it took the burning of an American Flag to revive it. That
Flag is accustomed to making sacrifices.

I KNOW IT LOOKS like I pick
on Harry Lee Smith and I really
hate to do it, except he's so pick-
able it hurts sometimes.
This time, he's really made
history and has given me fodder
with which to back him in a cor-

I admit to drawing the same
conclusion you have drawn for
these 35 years or so I have
known Harry Lee. Actually, it
might be a little longer than that,
- because I remember back When
Harry Lee was just a kid deliver-
ing papers to make a buck or
Harry Lee had to quit when
his real "self' started coming out
and his now ingrained adult
psyche began to take hold. You
see, Harry was not old enough
then to own a vehicle. He owned
a bicycle then, which he still has,
but later purchased his pick-up
truck, which was originally a
Ford and later-30 years ago-
bought his "new" Chevrolet.
I have to.be the first to verify
that he has made up for that
small misfortune in his formative
youthful days and has kept the
vehicles he now owns until they
both-are now eligible for "antique"
THIS FETISH WITH Harry
Lee has been the subject of some
first-rate ribbing over the years.
He has been accused of being
stingy, conservative, eccentric,
possessive and a number of other
Actually, I have found out
that Harry Lee just doesn't like to
go through the hassle of trading
automobiles. Have you ever won-
dered at the time Harry Lee has
saved by not having automobile
salesmen bugging him to buy
their particular product?
And, there are so many col-
ors, models, styles, engine sizes,
combinations, extras, sizes, etc.,.
these days, you can almost pur-
chase a tailor-made car right off
the floor, if you take the time and
effort to do so. It's almost impos-
sible to meet a vehicle just like
yours coming down the street
Harry Lee says he would nev-
er be able to make up his mind .
on just which particular automo-
bile to buy. After 30 years since
his last purchase, I can believe
THERE WAS ALSO a rumor
a while back that Harry Lee was
just demonstrating how good
American automobiles were and
he was living proof they would
last a person a lifetime, if they
just wouldn't get the itch for a
I admire Harry Lee for this
activity, if, indeed, that is the rea-
son he had held on to his old
NAPA truck and his Chevrolet se-
dan for as long as he has.
There is one place Harry Lee
and I agree. I won't buy a foreign
made automobile, even if I have
to go back to riding a bicycle. If it
isn't made in the U.S.A., a sales-
man is just wasting his time and
mine, trying to sell me.
Harry Lee has proof of Amer-
ican quality sitting in his yard.
HARRY LEE KEEPS his old
car because the poor soul doesn't
have the money to buy a new
one. I really would not have be-
lieved that, but after he as much
as told me that was the reason, I
have to accept it as gospel.
Harry Lee didn't actually say
he was broke, but when I saw
him get out of a red sports car
with a good looking woman be-
hind the Motel at noon one day
and remarked. 'Hey, Harry, what
are you doing riding around in a
sports car with a good looking
woman?" he intimated as much.
Harry defended the lady's
choice in companions by saying
she was a relative and said the
car wasn't his. "I can't afford a
sports car!" he complained.
I told him he wasn't any bet-
ter than the rest of us. He could
just ride around in a car he
couldn't afford, holding joint
ownership with the finance com-
pany just like the rest of us do.
'What makes you think you're
special?" I asked. "It's the Ameri-
can way to hock yourself for pay-
ments you can't afford in order to
look like you have money!" I as-
sured him. "Go buy yourself a
new carl" I advised Harry.
I MUST HAVE broken
through Harry's ingrown barrier
to spending money, because he
grinned, half closed his right eye,
jammed his hands in his pockets
and said, "Chief.. ." He calls me
"chief'. "Chief," he aid. "If you'll
just sign my note sd I can borrow
the money, I'll buy me a new car!"
I heard him say it with his
own mouth. He's willing! After 30
years. Harry has said he would
buy a new car, under one condi-
tion; that I sign his note.
I'm willing to do this. The
only thing I will need is someone
to sign my note, so I can get the
collateral to sign Harry Lee's
note. So all you friends of Harry
Lee, gather around. Come willing
to put your name on the dotted
line and we'll back old Harry Lee
down and have him in a new car

Inspector De Wayne Manuel.
The meeting came to order at 7:10 p.m.
UpQn call for public comment concerning the
proposed adoption of a local option gas tax, the fol-
lowing citizens inquired about the tax:
Grady Booth inquired about the necessity
for the full 5 cents (why not 4 or 5?). Chairman
Birmingham stated that 6 cents is only a proposal
at this trime, and can be lowered even at the final
hearing,. He discussed that they started out high
because it can be lowered, but If they had started
low they could-not have raised it. Commissioner
Peters stated that he plans to move for. this
amount to be lowered. Commissioner Parker stat-
ed that he is partial to the full 6- cents because
they are going to need It. t
Ed-Bandjough inquired if 6 cents is the
highest it could be. Chairman Birmingham report-
ed that 6 cents is the maximum according to the
Grady Booth inquired about other funds
available for road paving "Chairman Birmingham
discussed that the County gets the 5th and 6th
'cent gas tax each year (approximately $320,000) of
which $230.000 is paid on their existing bond Is-
,sue and $100,000 is for emergency paving pro-
jects. He also stated that the Board will be meeting
to discuss and develop a road paving priority list.
Commissioner Creamer discussed that the bond.
issue will not be paid off for 4 1/2 more years, and
the'-100,000 each year (emergency money) will only
pave a short distance;
.- Sheriff Harrison inquired. about the finds
that were spent last year. Chairman Birmingham
stated that approximately $374.000 was spent on
various roads t year (of which $25,000 went to
each city). He also discussed letters from the City
of Wewahitchka (20%) and- the City of Port St Joe
S. OR) concerning their requested percentages.
Robert Nations inquired if the funds would
be used for new construction. Chairman Birming-
Shaul stated that the tax will be used for new con-
r.. s -ction and.for-resurfacing."'
". rady Booth inquired about whether or hot
S thlik chip trucks are paying for the damage they do
t _:. the roads. Commissioner Creamer discussed
that they-pay extra for their tags and fuel, and he
stated that the problems are caused from the
trucks being overloaded and exceeding the speed
'. limit; (need mote'. enforcement in these areas);.
SCairman Birmtingham' sated that they contribute
.to.the 5th and6t .cent gas tax. but if they deft-
nitely damage a road they can be held liable. Sher-
iff Harrtson .stated that the weight of the truck Is
the problem (faster speed does less damage).
Grady Booth'- inquired about whether or not
the tax will apply to diesel. Chairman stated that it
S... ll apply exactly as the taxes are now applied (die-
sel will exempt fat off-road users only). Mr. Booth
recommended that.the Board make the trucks pay
if they are damaging the roads. .
: Robert Nations complimented the Board on
considering 'adoption of a'fuel tax, stating he feels
it is the only fair solution. .
Chairman Birmingham thanked Mr. Eu-
ganks *for preparing the Commons Area and allow-
ing the Board to use It, and he thanked the Port,
St. Joe County Commissioners -for coming to We-
wahitchka to meet He directed Admin. Asst Wells

Flobrida Power Corporation is in the middle of an improvement
program here in Port St Joe, which will result in more reliable
electric power service, according to Mike McDonald, local FPC
"Actually, this is just a continuation of a project we started
some time ago, to improve on the service loop which distributes
power.throughout the city," McDonald said.
The current project involves replacing the main transmission
line on Long Avenue between Fifth Street to 19th Street "'We're
replacing old. poles and installing heavier transmission lines ca-
pable of carrying a heavier load to our customers to serve their
growing needs," McDonald said. "In addition, we're making im-
provements in the service loop which allows one section to take
up the load when there's failure in the distribution system and
also break down service areas, more so an outage won't affect
so much of the city,at one time."
McDonald said the poles being replaced may look perfectly
OK and some of them may.not appear to be very old. "These
poles are dated," McDonald said,. "and some of them were in-
stalled in 1938 and 1939." The local manager said area service
should be more dependable 'when the present project is complet-
ed. In the meantime,.FPC would appreciate it if drivers would be
a little careful as they travel in the work area.

By Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Director
The Crape Myrtle is one of the
most rewarding small trees or
large shrubs for the landscape.
Its ease of propagation, long
blooming period and ability to
grow under nearly every soil con-
dition make the crape myrtle a
widely used and a greatly ad-
mired ornamental. My informa-
tion for this article was provided
by Extension Horticulturist Dr.
Robert J. Black with IFAS at the
University of Florida.
The flowering season for
crape myrtle begins in June or
July, and continues until fall.
Each long cluster of flowers (pani-
cle) is composed of hundreds of
one to two-inch red, pink, white,
lavender or purple flowers. Leaves
are often garnet tinged In the
spring, glossy dark green in the
summer and dull to intense yel-
low, orange or red in the autumn.
When the leaves fall in the winter,
the crape myrtle become a living
sculpture. The trunk and leaves
have an attractively gnarled,
twisted character with smooth
bark varying in color from light
straw to rich deep brown. Patches
of bark flake off (exfoliate) in the
early summer to reveal new bark
ranging in color from light pink to
Crape myrtle is very versatile
in the residential landscape. Sin-
gle-trunked, or multi-trunked
specimens make ideal small
shade trees for a sunny deck, ter-
race, or entrance hallway. Multi-
trunked plants can be used as a
visual barrier, a specimen plant
in the garden or a dominant land-
scape feature when planted singly
or in groups. Semi-dwarf types
are suitable for foundation plant-
ings, use in containers, or even
as larger ground covers. Occa-
sional pruning may be required to
maintain desired size and form.
Background plantings of ever-
green shrubs or trees may be em-
ployed to further emphasize the
floral spectacle of crape myrtle.
Crape myrtle can be used to
create an "alley" in a large garden
area. Alleys are usually long
walkways where the plants are
spaced so their canopies touch
and enclose the pathways. There
is even a patented, miniature
weeping form good for use as a
bonsai plant or in hanging bas-
Crape myrtle should be locat-
ed in an area that receives full
sunlight for most of the day. Oth-
erwise, a week spindly plant with
a few flowers can be expected.
Plants growing in shaded areas
will also .be plagued by plant dis-
eases such as powdery mildew.
Crape myrtle tolerates a wide
range of soil conditions, but
grows best In a heavy loam that
is slightly acid (pH 5.0 to 6.5).
Nutrient requirements are mini-
mal; high fertility levels produce
excessive, vegetative :. growth and
and white fly can be controlled by
spraying with an appropriate in-
Powdery mildew is a common
disease of crape myrtle, especially-
when it is grown in damp shaded
areas. This fungus disease causes
the plants to be unsightly, but
also can cause some defoliation
and actual death of severely in-
fested stems. Control can be
achieved by spraying with an ap-
propriate fungicide or planting re-
sistant cultivars. The national ar-
bretum's new cultivars cherokee
(medium height with red flowers),
Seminole (medium height with
pink flowers) and Potomac (large
tree with pink flowers) are highly
resistant to powdery mildew.

Seaweed Bothers Bathers
Seaweed has been a nuisance along the
Panhandle of Florida for the past three weeks,
causing tourists to complain and local govern-
ment officials to scratch their heads over what
to do with the unsightly weed, which washes
ashore each spring. This particular spring, the
influx of the. seaweed seems to be more plentiful
New Species of Crawfish.
Adds to State's Production
Just when the public appetite
forecajun cookery has heated up,
a native Florida crawfish could
steal the culinary limelight long
dominated by Louisiana.
Researchers at the University
of Florida's Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences (IFAS) say
the species, Procambarus pae-
ninsulanus, has the right traits
to make it a commercial challeng-
er to the Louisiana varieties.
Researchers have found the
species in the Panhandle, in
Northeast Florida and along the
Gulf Coast to south of Tampa.
The species has a distinct ad-
vantage over the popular Red
Swamp crawfish, the current
commercial species in Florida.
The Red Swamp crawfish can
only legally be farmed or trans-
ported alive west of the Apalachi-
cola River, restricting farming in
Florida to the Panhandle area.
Biologists with the Florida
Game and Fresh Water Fish Com-
mission have feared the aggres-
sive Red Swamp species, a Loui-
siana import, would compete and
possibly replace, Florida's native
But the Florida species could
legally be produced any place in
the state with flat land, suitable
soils and plenty of water, said
"It's a big, burrowing crawfish
with what appears to have the
same life history and biology as
the Red Swam crawfish," said
, Chuck Cichra, a UF assistant
.professor in fishery management.
MORE TESTS NEEDED
Still, researchers caution
S more tests must be done before
they can certify this species a
'We're going to grow it in
ponds, as is currently done com-
mercially with the Red Swam
crawfish," said Cichra. 'We're go-
ing to look at how big it gets, how
fast it grown, how many eggs it
produces and if it can be grown
with current crawfish farming
This species grows to the -
right size for commercial produc-
tion about three to six inches,
said Cichra. And it tastes as good
as others on the market. 'You
can't taste the difference," said
Cichra, "a crawfish is a crawfish
is a crawfish."
-Once solely the savory spe-
.cialty of Creole country, crawfish
is now in global demand, thanks
in part to the wizardry of world-,
class chefs like Paul Prudhomme.
and K. Paul.
'Years ago, production met-
the needs of Louisiana," said
Cichra "Now, they're starting to
export crawfish to Europe. Swe-
den pays an incredible price for
crawfish. They like the larger ani-
mals and will pay $9 a pound."
GULF COUNTY FARMS
In Florida, around 3,000
acres of crawfish are commercial-
ly farmed on the M-K Ranch in
Gulf County, said Cichra. In Loui-
siana, over 130,000 acres of
crawfish are commercially pro-
duced, Cichra said.
Crawfish are grown in ponds,

usually planted with rice or stud-
ded with bales of hay, which
serve as feed for the crawfish.
A first-time crawfish farmer
needs the basics: water, pumps,
and land. Cichra rates crawfish
as a good second crop for rice
and sugar cane farmers.
Crawfish are harvested from
January until May. In Florida,
crawfish generally are sold for
around one dollar a pound, said
Cichra expects the crawfish
craze to catch on in Florida. "A lot
of people call me and say, 'I've got
a farm and every time it rains,
I've got buckets of crawfish lying
around. Why can't I raise them?"

Gulf Pines Getting Heavy Into
Walk-In Medical Care Facilities
Gulf Pines Hospital is shifting
its emphasis toward providing
round the clock medical service
to the community and. placing
more of their facilities toward
emergency type medical care,
Frank Batafarano, administrator,
told the Rotary Club Thursday.
Batafarano emphasized the
hospital has not reduced its ser-
vices as a viable hospital opera-
tion here in Port St. Joe, but has
taken on this full-time care as an
added service to the community.
'We're doing things like up-
grading the ambulance service to
an advanced life support capabil-
ity, opening a full-time medical
clinic with doctors on duty at all
times and enlarging our patient
monitor service so admitting doc-
a tors can have their patients cov-
ered by doctors around the
Schlock the administrator said.
Homing in on the ambulance
service, the speaker told the Ro-
arlans a new ambulance will be
in service tri just a few weeks.
"It's presently being outfitted in
Birmingham, Alabama, and as
soon as it's finished, it will be
placed in service here."
The hospital executive also
said another vehicle is being ne-
gotiated for which will contain
the advanced life support system.
"Presently, we are offering only
basic life support ambulance op-
erations," Batafarano said.
The hospital is also currently
upgrading the training of ambu-
lance personnel to provide a Par-
amedic and Emergency Medical
Technician on every crew. Pres-
ently, crews consist mostly of an
EMT and a driver.
"Our new medical clinic is a
step forward to providing round
the clock medical service by a
certified doctor," the speaker
said. The clinic, which is now
open, also offers the patient the
option of coming to the hospital
for treatment without having to
go through the emergency room
and bear that considerable ex-
'The clinic, located in the por-
tion of the hospital formerly held
by the ambulance service, is open
to walk-ins, day or night," Batafa-
The hospital is owned and op-
erated by an Orlando firm, which
also manages the Apalachicola
hospital in this area.
Guests of the club were Jack
Blair and Jimmy Hentz of Pana-
ma City and Rev. Zedoc Baxter of
Port St. Joe.
