City Approves of
Deal with County
The City Commission voted
Tuesday night to accept the latest
offer of the Gulf County Commis-
sion, dividing up anticipated rev-
enues of a prospective six-cent
motor fuels tax.
Mayor Frank Pate remarked,
"It isn't the kind of deal we want-
ed, but we'll take it to get the pro-
. The "deal" would provide the
City of Port St. Joe $600,000
worth of road paving from an an-
ticipated $3 million bond issue
and then give the City 15 equal
payments of: i$50,000 per year,
starting in the year 1995. The
monthly payments will come from
the county share of the state's
fifth and sixth cent gasoline tax.
This fund now finances a bond
Issue made in the early '70's,
which will be paid off in 1994.
Commissioner Edwin Wil-
liams remarked, 'That may not
be such a good deal. Port St. Joe
may be 10 times its present size
20 years from now."
The City of Wewahitchka was
offered $400,000 worth of paving
from the bond issue and 15 pay-
ments of $34,000 per year.
MILL RATE SET
Clerk Alden Farris said Tues-
day night, a final millage rate had
been ascertained to finance the
new 1989-90 fiscal budget. '"The
mill rate will be 5.1562, reflect-
ing a reduction of .232 of a mill.
Fan-is said the mill rate
would generate some $1,026,574
in taxes, for a $150.000 increase
over the previous year.
All of the tax increase is be-

The first break came this
week in a six-week-old mystery
which erupted here in Port St.
Joe in June. Two New Mexico
couples have identified a boy and
a girl shown bound and gagged,
lying in a white van, in a photo
found here, as their children, ac-
cording to Port St. Joe Police
Chief Carl Richter.
Mrs. John "Patti" Doel, of Be-
len, New Mexico, is certain the
mysterious photo is a picture of
her daughter, Tara Calico, 20,
who disappeared from near her
home in September of last year,
while out riding her bicycle.
Mrs. Doel has discounted the
theory her daughter may have
run away. "She wasn't the type,"
Mrs. Doel told an assembled
group of news people, FDLE in-
vestigators, and local law enforce-
ment people in an all-day session

Chief Richter said. "They're tenta-
tively sure it's their 10-year-old

Port St. Joe, flashed on a Fox TV

Dead Carcasses Line Beach for
Two Miles Near Cape San Blas
A fish kill dumped tons of pogey fish on the shores of
Gulf County beaches early Saturday morning, causing a
stench to rise from the affected beaches about mid-
afternoon Saturday, which would gag a maggot.
County Commissioner Donald Parker, who received no-
tification of the kill Saturday morning, said the fish covered
the beaches south from Dead Man's Curve for about two
miles. "I found the end of the large quantity of fish about
Money Bayou and drove to the end, recording an even two
miles on the odometer of my pick-up ti-uck," Parker said.
Parker said he was first notified of the invasion of dead
fish by two residents of Gulf Pines subdivision, Mrs. C. Lee
Wilson and Peter Stevenson.
DNR HAMPERS CLEAN-UP
Parker had made a remark at last Tuesday's meeting of
the County Commission to the effect that he wanted to see
what the Department of Natural Resources would do to
clean up the next fish kill, after the state agency stopped
the county from cleaning up seaweed with heavy equip-
ment. "I want to see if they object, then," Parker said.
Saturday, Parker found out when he contacted DNR
about the fish kill. 'They came and looked, said they were
pogies and told us again not to put any machinery on the
beach to clean the mess up. They offered to let us clean up
the dead fish with a shovel if we wanted to. I advised them
we didn't have the manpower to clean up a mess of that
size with a man and a shovel."
Parker said the source of the dead fish was uncertain.
'You know, when the boats get more than they can carry or
load on board, they put them back in the water. The pogies
die and wash on shore when that happens to them."
The County Commissioner said area commercial fisher-
men were checked to see if they had dumped the fish, but
none had. 'There were some boats from Louisiana and Mis-
sissippi in the area and we suspect they dumped the fish."
Parker said the fish were still lying on the shore Mon-
day, saying, 'They're probably really ripe by this time, but
there's nothing we can do about it."
County Will Trash Solid Waste System
Tentatively Identified by New Mexico Couples
The U.S. Coast Guard is ob-
serving a week honoring the na-
tion's lighthouse service on its
200th anniversary of service to
the nation's shipping.
Several lighthouses in this
area have been around a long
time, with installations on the
Pensinsula to the west of St. Jo-
seph Bay, and the eastern pass
to St. George Sound and Apa-
lachicola Bay, having the longest
history of service to marine traffic
along the Gulf coast.
A lighthouse on Cape San
Blas, near the entrance to St. Jo-
seph Bay and the one at St.
George Sound, were both put into
service in 1838 and light service
has operated continuously at or
near the two locations since that
The light at Cape San Bias
was moved 10 years later to its
approximate location today. It
was destroyed by storms and ero-
sion on several occasions but was
re-built farther inland each time.
The lighthouse at Beacon Hill
was requested in 1867 and finally
built in 1902 to guide shipping
into the bay as a safe harbor in
times of storm or mechanical dif-
ficulties. The bay was described,
at the time as, 'The only harbor
of refuge for some 60 miles .

On or Off?.
We really don't blame the shrimpers of Florida for "having
their dander up," as my grandmother used to say. This on-
again-off-again business with the turtle excluder devices on
their shrimp nets is enough to make anyone upset.
At least three times in the past several weeks, the TED's
have been required and then not required in shrimp nets in or-
der for the nets to be legal. We're afraid that by the time both
the feds and the state make up their minds permanently on the
devices-if they ever do-they'll be worn out from taking them
off and then putting them back on.
The shrimpers don't like the devices because, as they claim,
they keep some 40% of their potential catch of shrimp out of
their nets, while not being all that protective of the turtles.
The latest ruling from those who would protect the turtles
and seemingly don't quite know how to go about it, is to allow
the TED's to be removed and limit the amount of time a shrimp
net can be drug to 90 minutes. The thinking here is that if a
turtle is caught in the net, he'll be brought to the surface and
turned loose before he drowns.
To us, that sounds like a reasonable solution, so there must
be something wrong with it. Right off the bat, we're going to
wonder how enforcers of such rules are going to time every
shrimp net let into the bay every day. Possibly, the shrimpers
will be so relieved to get rid of the TED's, they will do a good job
of cooperating and policing the limits set on net dragging.
Believe it or not, we're concerned about the turtles, also.
The beasts have been with us for millions of years, and we hate
to see something like a shrimp net eradicate such a tradition
from the face of the earth. It seems a little ironic that some-
thing which has withstood the dangers the turtle has withstood
over the eons of ages and even during his own lifetime from
hatching to the present day, should fall victim to something so
simple as a shrimp net.
We also have misgivings about the shrimp net being that
much of a lethal enemy to the continued existence of the turtle.
What really bothers us is that virtually every island culture in-
the Caribbean, Mexico and Central America makes a ritual of
hunting turtle eggs during spawning season. The eggs are con-
sidered a delicacy and they are also considered as a free source
of a nourising food in this part of the world.
Gathering turtle eggs probably does considerably more
harm to the turtle population than shrimp nets do. If we're go-
ing to get concerned, let's get concerned where it counts.
Share the Cost
If we understand the County Commission correctly-and we
thinklre do-all of us in Gulf County can expect to pay for the
disposal of our own solid waste in just a short while. The 35%
of the property owners in Gulf County paying ad valorem taxes
have been paying for this service for all our people as the path
of least resistance for all these years. Now, the bill is getting too
high and the few paying taxes are complaining.,
We haven't been one of those complaining, yet, even though
we fall in that 35%, but considering what our governments are
making us do about handling solid waste in the future and
having better than a vague idea of how much this is going to
cost, we're in support of the user fee.
This way, all those who said, "great!" when they learned of
some of the innovations for handling solid waste in a non-
polluting manner, can have a hand in paying some of the bill
for these innovations.
In just a couple of years, re-cycing must take care of at
least 30% of what we presently throw away in the trash. All of
this salvaging materials is going to cost king-size money and
everyone should have a share in it.
We agree with the concept and we feel the county should
set up a solid waste department, purchase loader-packers and
get in the collection business themselves.
For one reason, it will provide more local jobs. For another
reason, the service will have some responsible supervision. An-
other reason is that the county is going to be held responsible
by state and federal agencies, no matter what, and they should
be where they can determine the method of operation to com-
ply with rules and regulations.
If we can come up with a local private collector to do the
job, great! If we cannot, we favor the county getting into the
business and the sooner the better.
IHunker Down with Kes
"How High, Dear?"
I tell you guys, it's tough be-
ing married to someone that is
smarter than you. Cathy has de-
cided it's time for a family vaca-
tion. Now, I've said this before, I
don't want to go on a vacation.
I've got no desire to go anywhere.
When was the last time you re-
turned from one of those trips
when you weren't more worn out
than before you left? Besides, we
took a three-day vacation sum-
mer before last. And in 1985 we
took the boys to Disney World.
You won't believe this, but Cathy
still refers to that as a vacation!
Shucks, I still remember the
first vacation we took together. It
was about three years after we
were married. We went up to
some resort area in North Caroli-
na. Cathy "won" the trip for us. It
was one of those deals where you
get to stay there a couple of
nights free and in return you had
to spend part of an afternoon lis-
tening to their real estate depart-
ment tell you why you needed to
purchase a lot in this "the most
exclusive resort spot in all of the
Smoky Mountains". Listen, it
wasn't too exclusive or they
wouldn't a'been talking to me.
For our first meal we visited
the scenic Mountain View Cap-
tain's Club. Now, I'm telling this
story with my hand up on the
menu the prices were written out
in script letters. For instance the
haunch of venison wasn't $16.50,
it was SiXteen DVofars andFifty Cents. I'd
never been in a place like that in
my life And before I could kick
Cathy under the table, she or-
dered the pheasant under glass. I
told the guy with the white gloves
I wasn't too hungry, could I get a
quarter haunch for $4.00? While
Cathy dined on what looked like a
tough old quail, I munched on
buttered toast and drank my wa-
ter in silence. We took the rest of
our meals about half way down
the mountain at Big Ed's Road-
side Truck Stop, Gift Shop and
All Night Cafe.
I kinda' soured on vacations
after that. So I didn't leap for joy
when Cathy brought the subject
up the other night over supper.
"Hon, you know school is
about to start in a couple of

Minnows to Hide
weeks and I thought we might
could take a little trip and just re-
lax before then."
I stopped mashing up my
brown beans and cornbread. A
vacation! Relaxl I've got to think
fast. Just the summer before Ca-
thy had gone on a tour of Civil
War battle sites in the South. She
would call me each night from
places like Tupelo, Mississippi,
Jackson Tennessee, and Stone
Mountain, Georgia. To this day,
I'm still trying to remember what
big battle took place in Tupelo,
Mississippi. But she got college
credit for this course and seemed
to thoroughly enjoy the trip. I
paid the money, ran the taxi ser-
vice for the boys in her absence
and was proud that she got to go.
This summer she joined the
same outfit for a 10-day tour of
the American Revolution in Bos-
ton, Saratoga, Lexington, Phila-
delphia, etc. About the third
night, the boys got to complaining
about the brown beans and corn-
bread for every meal by the
end of the week they were eating
it and liking it. Cathy came
home excited about Fenway Park
and the Red Socks and the Indi-
ans. I didn't remember Paul Re-
vere or any of those Adams broth-
ers fighting at Fenway Park.
Maybe that's where they dressed
up like Indians and tossed flow-
through tea bags at all English-
men wearing red coats and socks
to match. I'm worried to death
that next year these folks will
have a tour of World War II beach
heads in the South Pacific.
I cleared my throat and point-
ed out to Cathy that she had a
vacation last summer and fur-
thermore, she'd just returned
from an extended trip around the
New England states. Having
made my point, I triumphantly
returned to the beans and corn-
bread. "Kes, it's not a vacation
unless we all go together."
Silly me. I didn't know that. I

'Times" Subscription Department Attracted My Attention
IF I EVER HAD an ego prob-

other day. Rather, I should say, I
had it catered to the other ddy.
'For years, I have been a sub-
scriber to Newsweek magazine
and I read it every week.
Last year, some kid came by
the office, selling magazines to
raise money for the particular
class project this particular stu-
dent happened to be soliciting for
at the time. If a kid selling some-
thing comes by the office, they
usually walk out with an order, if
it's a legitimate project.
This particular kid ap-
proached Frenchie with his mag-
azine sales pitch, and in order to
help him out, she decided to re-

Now, there were two news maga-

So, for a little more than a
year, I have received both News-

was a card inside the magazine
advising me that If I went ahead
then and re-newed the subscrip-
tion, I would get a cut rate and a
premium as well.
I didn't particularly want two
magazines, so I passed up this
tempting deal to re-new early .
even for the valuable free prize.
Then, on down the line, there
was another card marked, "Ur-
gent!', but again I passed up the
deal and forgot the notice.
Then, there was a last chance

ies if I re-newed. It was a test of
strong will to pass up such a
good deal, but I was equal to the

I'M NOT REALLY going to
miss Time, however. During the
year I took both news magazines,
I noticed they both carried about
the same stories and had the
same pictures. On more than one
occasion, both periodicals had
pictures of the same subjects on
the front cover. So, it's not as if I
were going to miss anything.

I can't believe I read it in Newsweek, one of the most liberal
magazines, in my opinion, on the market today.
It's an article in the latest edition, July 31, 1989, entitled,
'Woman, Pick Up The Phone", and was written by Gerald Nachman,
a columnist at the San Francisco Chronicle. Mr. Nachman appar-
ently is a bachelor because a footnote indicates he has Just had a
book published and the title is, "The Fragile Bachelor".
"The last sexual taboo", the first sentence states in his article
published by Newsweek, "is the brazen hussy who calls a man for a
date." The article goes on to explain why women of today are hesi-
tant-yes, even fearful-to call a man for a date.
There is no mention as to what part of San Francisco Mr. Nach-
man lives or what his sexual preference is, but he must live awfully
close to a gay community and have no phone. I'm certain he hasn't
lived in some of the cities where I've lived.
If there is anyone today who thinks women won't call a man
and ask him for a date, they must be, in my opinion, blind, crip-
pled, and a deaf-mute with the mentality of a retarded six-year-old.
Women have been calling men for dates for years. As a matter of
fact, it started right after I was married.
There are women today who not only call men for dates but
pursue them relentlessly. They stalk them with the pursuit of a
starting defensive lineman after a quarterback. And, like the hungry
lineman, they will use every trick available to tackle their prey.
Some of these ladies will make a male admirer look like a wallflow-
No woman has ever called me for a date. Oh, before I was mar-
ried several called me but most of them wanted to borrow money
and two of them wanted me to bail them out of jail. But ask me for
a date? It never happened!
Admittedly, I was a tad shy and no prize specimen to look at.
but even considering that, it looks like one woman, skinny, fat,
homely, ugly, retarded or whatever, would have had the nerve to
call me for a date.
If they had, I would have probably accepted. I would have con-
sidered it a compliment and, being the nice fellow that I am,
wouldn't have wanted to hurt her feelings or pride. Of course, I
would have made it clear that I would only go to a nice place and
she must treat me like a gentleman or else I would demand that she
bring me home.
Many people don't realize it, but the men of today don't appre-
ciate being treated like a "slut". Several men have told me that
when a woman calls them for a date and they accept, they expect to
be treated with respect. Talking dirty and in a suggestive manner is
a definite turn-off. One man said that a woman took him to her
apartment and tried to get him to watch a dirty movie on the first
date. He never saw her again
It's no big thing, a woman calling a man for a date. It happens
every day and I think it's a good thing. I only wish it had started
sooner. I also wish someone would inform Mr. Nachman and the
people at Newsweek about what's going on in the world of romance
It's people like those "brazen hussies" that make the world such
a wonderful place to live. Gerald Nachman ought to know that!

Two Named to
Governor Bob Martinez has
announced that two local people
from Port St. Joe have been
named to the Port Authority of
Port St. Joe.
Named were William C.
Strang and Robert E. Nedley. Wil-
liam is the director of Basic Incor-
porated manufacturers. He has
been appointed to succeed
Charles Shoaf for a term ending
July 20, 1993. Nedley is vice
president of St. Joe Forest Prod-
ucts. He has ben reappointed for
a term ending July 27, 1993.
of Natural Resources and the Department
of Environmental Regulation are coming
down hard on every county in the state
and their methods of handling solid waste.
There are even mandates for re-cycling
built into their requirements, which make
the collection of waste items mandatory if
the re-cycling is to work properly.
DUMPSTERS BEING REMOVED
One thing the Commission has decided
upon is the chain of dumpsters located
throughout the county and emptied daily,
will be removed on October 1, with the be-
ginning of the new fiscal year.
After the dumpsters are taken out of
service, it will be necessary for people liv-
ing outside municipal areas to transport
From Page 1
their solid waste to one of the two compac-
tor sites in the county. One is located near
Port St. Joe on the Industrial Road and
the other just west of Wewahitchka on
State Road 22.
Stiff fines are to be put into effect for
indiscriminate dumping and intensive sur-
veillance will be introduced to discourage
the practice which became such a problem
before the dumpsters were put in place.
The public hearings are being sched-
uled to determine what course the Com-
mission will follow.
There will be a change in solid waste
handling. That much has been determined
as a matter of necessity.

Gold Card Club Making
Plans for Upcoming Year
The Gulf County School Gold
Card Club would like to express
thanks to everyone who has con-
tributed to the 1989-90 sponsor-
ship campaign. These funds will
allow the continuation of awards
given for academic excellence
which are presented by the club.
Preparation for the printing of
this year's brochure is now being
completed. If you would like to be

And You Thought
Gas Was Expensive!
To make shopping for grocer-
ies more interesting, I convert the
price per pound, or price per
ounce, into a price per pound or
gallon. For instance a gallon of
apple juice costs $2.04 for half a
gallon, this equals $4.08 per gal-
lon four times the price of gas-
Considering the processing
required to obtain a gallon of ap-
ple juice and a gallon of gasoline,
the latter is a bargain.
I pointed this out to my hus-
band, Bill Parker (the jailbird)
and he laughed and suggested we
start drinking gasoline.
Yours very truly,

special program of the Center for
Independent Living of North Flori-
The Center, a non-profit or-
ganization that provides services

ates a program in Gulf and the
neighboring counties entitled Pro-
ject Access North Florida (VISTA).
Our goal is to identify re-
sources in the community and to
find all of the disabled people in
the area who need our assistance
with housing, medical benefits,
independent living skills, training
Or special equipment, etc. Mi-
cheal Elliott who directs the pro-
gram from the Center's main of-
lice in Tallahassee, "At the same'
time, we are also looking for the
resources we need to help them."
'We, have made a good start
with-Dorothy Denmon, our VISTA
Worker," says Elliott, "and we are
looking forward to a busy and
productive two years."

Sharon Howell, district repre-
sentative of the American Cancer

Tuesday, of two special activities
the Society is involved in to ease
the pain of the trauma of cancer
Howell first told of Hope
Lodge in Gainesville, which is
maintained jointly by Winn-Dixie
and the American Cancer Socie-
"Cancer treatment is an ex-
pensive, lengthy treatment," How-
ell said. "and Hope Lodge in
Gainesville provides a home-like,
warm place to stay for families
who have their children in
Gainesville for chemotherapy."
The facility is located near
Shands Teaching Hospital and
has a complex of apartments
where a family may stay more
comfortably and more economi-
cally than being in a motel.
Howell said the Tapper Foun-
dation of Port St. Joe, was also a
contributor to Hope Lodge.
The speaker said anyone who
has need of the facilities may ap-
ply through their local chapter of
the American Cancer Society for
Another facility, which is of-
fered especially to children with
cancer, is the ROCK camp for
The camp provides all sum-
mer camp activities for the
youths and allows them to vaca-
tion in an atmosphere where
their sometimes unusual appear-
ance is hardly noticed,
Howell said this camp, too, is
administered by the American
Cancer Society and its services
obtainable through application
through the local office of the
Howell said Kiwanis Interna-
tional is considering sponsoring
another of the summer camps
and is currently conferring with
ACS about its construction and
Howell announced that Ken
Murphy would be the Gulf
County Chapter president during
the coming year, with Rene Slbaf
serving as Crusade Chairman.
The speaker said the Gulf
County Chapter is instrumental
in helping cancer patients with
transportation to and from treat-
ment centers, pain medication
and home care aids. "Donna
Drew, with the Gulf County
Health Department is our contact
for these services," she said.

teriorating (needs overlay) in one place when turn-
ing off of C30. He also reported that the shoulders
and the drainage has been messed up by water-
works being installed, and this needs to be re-
paired. Commissioner Gortman moved that the
Board have the subdivider make these recom-
mended repairs (shoulders and drainage) before

er seconded the motion, and it passed unanimous-
ly. Chairman Birmingham directed Road Superin-
tendent Lester to contact the owners concerning

cussion about funding, the Board agreed to wait

sioner Creamer, and unanimous vote, the Board

(Continued on Page 8)
Civil Defense Exercises: Chairman Birm-
ijgham discussed a memo from Civil Defense DI-
rector Wells, concerning the Civil Defense Exercis-
es to be performed in his office on July 12th, and
requested that the Board read the memorandum.
Health Director/Health Department Pro-
grams: Dr. Landis Crockett. of the Department of
HRS, appeared before the Board to discuss Dr.
Robert Morgan's resignation as the County Health
Director, and stated that a new physician/
administrator will have to be hired. He also stated
that he may have a couple of good candidates, but
It is hard to fill the position as the salary is barely
marketable. After discussion about the doctor/
administrative history of the Health Departments.
Commissioner Gortman discussed that he would
like for the Department of HRS to contract with lo-
cal doctors to provide the medical services and
hlte just an administrator. Upon discussion by
Commissioner Creamer that he is also interested
in contracting with local doctors. Dr. Crockett stat-
ed that his department attempted to do this when
the Primary Care Program got started, but there
was no response from the local doctors. He also
stated that they have contacted Dr. San Pedro
about filling in until they can hire someone, but he
can work only 8-12 hours each week. After discus-
sion about contracting with more than 1 doctor,
Dr. Crockett stated that part-time doctors are paid
by the hour and it will cost a lot more money (the
funds now budgeted would only pay for a limited
number of hours). He also stated that by combin-
-ing the 2 positions he-saves-money, because an
administrator alone would cost $30,000 to
$40.000 on a full-time basis. He discussed that
thie County would be luck to get a doctors) to con-
tract with them for $40 or $50 per hour, which is
almost twice what the salary for the full-time doc-
tor/administrator would be (which would mean ei-
ther having one-half of the normal "doctor" hours
or budgeting more money). After discussion about
tht need for an administrator and a Director of
Ni4zses, Commissioner Gortman stated that the
administrator needs to be the top person and the
doctors need to be on contract. After further dis-
cupsion about the local doctors having full-time
practices, Dr. Crockett agreed to contact the local
doctors to see how many are interested. Commis-
sidner Peters stated that he is against this because
th local doctors do not have the time to do It, and
tho rates for the part-time doctors will be toohigh.
COmmissioner Creamer stated that Dr. Crockett
should check into the local doctors and their pric-
es' and come back before the Board. Dr. Crockett
d;cussed an individual that he was considering
fo the physician/administrator position, and stat-
ed' that he would be paid what Dr. Morgan was
pad unless the Board wants to budget more. Corn-
miesloner Creamer stated that he personally
would like for Dr. Crockett to check the local doc-
tois first, and if they are not interested then try to
get the other man that he is considering (making it
clear that this man would have to move to, and be-
S cone a resident of, Gulf County).
. Dr. Crockett stated that he understands that
there have been inquires about their new women/
infant care program, and he discussed this pro-
gram with the Board. He reported that they give
out coupons to low-income mothers for the pur-
chXse of nutritional foods for their newborn babies
(formula, baby food, etc.). Upon inquiry by Com-
minloner Creamer, Dr. Crockett reported they do
nr prepare any foods at all (they sometimes have
caha of formula in stock) and he stated that the
coupons specifically state what they can be used
fo. He further reported that the dietician is to
trdin young mothers about good nutrition for their
babies. Upon Inquiry by Commissioner Peters, Dr.
Crockett stated that he is not sure but he feels
thit these coupons can be used at drug stores.
Commissioner Peters stated that he supports this
program and it really benefits the people in his
Dr. Crockett discussed the Department of
Environmental Regulations proposal to the Depart-
ment of HRS for several counties to contract with
them for HRS's County Official to inspect under-
ground storage tanks. He discussed the Impor-
tance of this program, as well as the Board's con-
cern about having the local people do the County's
work (instead of someone from the State). He stat-
edthat the program does not actually need the ap-
proval of the Board as it is a contract between
DER & HRS, but they wanted the Board to be ap-
prised of this matter. He requested that the Board
reconsider their, objection to this contract, as the
money will be retained in Gulf County, and County
Officialswill be performing this work. After discus-
slqn about contamination of the County's water
supply, he discussed the contract further. Chair-
man Birmingham reported that in order for the
Board to vote on this again, someone on the win-
ning side of the last vote would have to make a
motion to reconsider. Commissioner Peters stated
that he supports this program, and he discussed
that Mr. Doug Kent did an excellent job of explain-
ing this program. No motion for reconsideration
was made. Commissioner Peters stated that the
members of his community appreciates the service
Dr, Morgan provided, and he feels that he is an ex-
The meeting then recessed at 10:40 am.
The meeting reconvened at 10:55 a.m.
SClose Street Phillips Drive Beacon Hill
Estates: Jean Arnold appeared before the Board to
request that they abandon a 25-foot wide strip of
property (portion of Phillips Drive), extending adja-
cent to the Northern boundary line of Beacon Hill
Estates Unit One Subdivision. She stated that
thdre is a reverter clause in the deed which gives
thi property back to her if the Board abandons it,
and she would in turn deed it to Mr. Prowse for
footage to join Phillips Drive so it can be opened.
Upon Inquiry by Commissioner Birmingham. Ms.
Ariold stated that she understands that she must
bear the costs of- advertising and research If the
County agrees to do this. She stated that this is
her request, but she would actually prefer for the
Botrd to open the road for public access. Chair-
man Birmingham stated that It is the Board's poli-
cy 6ot to open up new streets, and Ms. Arnold dis-
cussed that she has several lots in that area
(which she Is paying taxes on) but cannot sell
them because there is no access. After further dis-
cussion, Chairman Birmingham gave the Chair to
Vide Chairman Peters, and moved that the Board
advertise to close this 25-foot wide portion of Phil-
lips Drive, arid Commissioner Parker seconded the
motion. After discussion by Chairman Birming-
bain about the Board's policy of road acceptance,
M. Arnold stated tat the taxes she has been pay-
ing should have bought a road there. After discus-
sion, Commissioner withdrew his second, and
Cotmissioner Birmingham withdrew his motion.
Chairman Peters returned the Chair to Commis-
sloner Birmingham. Commissioner Creamer stated
that he needs to look at this property to see what
needs to be done before he makes a decision in

Everybody Loves to Scallop!
Or so it would seem by the number of vehicles parked along the bay front at Simmons Bayou this
weekend. Scallop season opened July 1 and every day, and most especially on weekends, people travel
from far and near to hunt for the delectable mussels in the Mshallow waters at the head of St. Joseph's
Bay. Those who don't have boats to reach the shallow end of the bay park along the highway at Sim-
mons Bayou and wade out for the scallops.

Autumn Garden Mums Return to Favor
Garden mums, former stars
of the autumn garden, are return-
ing to favor, thanks to hybridiz-
ers' art, and to growers who pro-
duce plants for two seasons of
Hybridizers have developed
many new varieties with the wid-
est possible range of flower colors
and flower shapes, ranging from
tiny buttons to fanciful Fuji flow-
In their former heyday, gar-
deh mums, were most often sold
bareroot from mail order nurser-
ies, dormant plants which had
been dug and shipped before
growth started in the spring. Or
they were potted up and sold out
This spring, you'll find a va-
riety of garden mums for sale in
your local garden center, but
many of the plants will already be
in; bloom. These small blooming
plants, when planted in the gar-
den, are the foundation of large
blooming plants in the fall. (Al-
though some of these spring gar-
den mums will not be in bloom,
they'll be identified with a color
tag showing the plant in bloom.)..
The reason this works is that
chrysanthemums are perennials,
Once planted, you should be able
to enjoy many seasons of bloom
from the same plant. They're also
short-day plants which means
they set buds when nights are
longer than days. Hence, green-
house growers start with young
plants which form flower buds in
March before the days lengthen,
or else they shade them to artifi-
cially provide the long nights
which initiate bloom. Gardeners
are the winners from the result-
ing double blooming, first on
small plants in the spring, then
on the big plants in the fall.
These young, vigorous, dis-
ease-free plants become the
mounds of lavish color at sum-
mer's end. The technique is easy.
As soon a the spring blooms fade,
pinch them off and wait until the
new growth has at least two sets
of leaves. Pinch out the top of
each new .shoot. Repeat as the
plant grows, making the last

which, come fall, will turn into a

Many of today's garden mums
are bred to come into bloom earli-
er in the fall than older varieties
which means many more weeks
of bloom before cold weather fi-
nally cuts them down. Pan Ameri-
can Plant Company has devel-
oped 47 different varieties of high
with the newest additions, the
'Mascot' Series, as bountiful with
their blossoms as the chrysanthe-
mums of yesteryear. No longer do
you have to be satisfied with just
a few flower colors and shapes.
Colors seem blended just for
the harvest season, when annu-
als tend to diminish. There are
hearty bronzes, rusty coppers
and vibrant reds, a good foil for
tree-leaf color changes. Or choose
from pinks of all shapes and
hues, shading from the. hint of
sunlight in a dawn sky to rich
twilight tones. Smoky lavenders
and lazy purples contrast -with
the autumn landscape. And what
would Indian Summer be like
without the clear, bright yellow

Mr. and Mrs. B.T. Lowery of Port
St. Joe, has completed recruit
training at Marine Corps Recruit
Depot. Parris Island, S.C.
During the 13-week training
cycle, Callaway was taught the
basics of battlefield survival. He
was introduced to the typical dai-
ly routine that he will experience
during his enlistment and stud-
ied the personal and professional
standards traditionally exhibited
He participated in an. active
physical conditioning program
and gained proficiency in a varie-
ty of military skills, including first
aid, rifle marksmanship and close
order drill. Teamwork and self-
discipline were emphasized
throughout the training cycle.
A 1988 graduate of Port St.
Joe High School, he joined the
Marine Corps In February 1989.
Expect these mums to laugh
at frosts that curl tomatoes and
blacken pumpkin vines. The glory
of fall is that garden mums start
in the spring.

Gulf weed! Gulf weed! It has
really washed up in large quanti-
ties on our beaches this summer.
When you don't normally expect
that amount of seaweed, it can
become a problem. However,
large quantities of gulf weed oc-
cur on the east coast of Florida
every summer along with jelly-
fish, Portuguese man-of-way,
shipping channel marine litter
and big black sticky tar blobs.
The people there have learned to
swim, sunbathe, and enjoy the
beach around all of those obsta-
cles. We, however, generally enjoy
the cleanest beaches in Florida.
Sargasso weed, a brown al-
gae, is a branching plant with nu-
merous short-stalked floats called
air bladders. These are berry-like
in shape and are borne on narrow
toothed leaves. The air bladders
increase buoyancy of the plant so,
it can easily float on or in the salt
water. There are actually 15 dif-
ferent species of these plants
growing along the Atlantic Coast,
from Maine to Florida. Some are
benthic or attached to rocks or
reefs on the ocean bottom. Some
are pelagic or free floating. There
are about 135 species of marine
algae in the Pacific Ocean, one
species is known as kelp.
If you think we have a lot of
gulf weed, there's more where
that comes from. Seven million
tons of live sargassum float unat-
tached in the calm waters of the
Sargasso Sea. This floating mat of
brown algae is located south of
Bermuda and covers an area two-
thirds the size of the United
States. The plants reproduce
through the breaking off of piec-
es. This plant mass provides food,
shelter, spawning grounds and a
support system for many marine
The Gulf Stream's warm cur-
rents circulate in a clockwise
path around the Sargasso Sea,
out in the Atlantic Ocean, then
flows back into the Gulf of Mexi-
co. (Picture of Gulf Stream Cur-
The amount of this plant that,
we receive on our beaches in the
Gulf of Mexico depends on the
amount of disturbance inflicted
by tropical storms and hurri-
canes in the Atlantic Ocean
around the Sargasso Sea. Entire
plants and plant fragments are
torn loose and carried away by
tides and currents due to these
If you were to pick up a fresh
clump of gulf weed and shake it
into your hand or bucket you
might discover a small seahorse,
a hydrold, a sargasso crab or
fish, small shrimp, or other small
sea critters. Many exhibit amaz-
ing mimicry and have adaptions
which imitate color and form of
the Sargasso. When clumps of
gulf weed float about they act as
fast food stores for the many ma-
rine animals that swim about the
vast ocean. As this nutrient rich
gulf weed comes to rest on our
shores, the numerous shore birds
dine elegantly on this diverse sea-
food banquet. Then the sun dries
the plant and the wind and rain
work the dried crunchy plant
matter into the sand, it becomes
excellent fertilizer for the beach
and dune vegetation.
HELP, NOT NUISANCE
Economically, this brown al-
gae plant is helpful to man. Kelp
is formed in some parts of the
world and processed as food for
man and animals. Brown algae
are also used for fertilizer. A large
industry has grown from extract-
ing algin, a cell wall component,
from which salts known as algi-
nates are manufactured. Brown
algin is used in the manufactur-
ing of soaps, paints, leather fin-
ishers, insecticides, toothpaste,
lipsticks, medicines, food stabiliz-
ers, and clarifying agents in the
production of beer.
In nature, gulf weed benefits
marine life and coastal plants
and animals. Man has learned to
use its byproducts to create use-
ful substances for man's benefit
and we continue to complain
about the gulf weed. Anybody
want some free fertilizer?

St. Joe Wins First
Summertime isn't a time to forget about insects. They V
V aren't likely to let us, anyway. The area of major concern
here is the bee family, including hornets, yellow jackets,
wasps and the like.
While most sting victims suffer only some pain, a local
reaction of burning, redness and a large wheal formation,
some are not so lucky. For those sensitive to bee sting
* venom, it could be a matter of life or death. They should see
a physician, be desensitized and get information on the j
treatment. A bee sting kit should also be carried.
"A GREAT MANY PEOPLE ENTRUST US with their
prescriptions, health needs and other pharmacy products
We consider this trust a privilege and a duty. May we be
3 your personal family pharmacy?"

game Tuesday. Des Baxter went
the distance on the mound for

Baxter helped his own cause

over the right field fence to score
three runs in the third inning.
Brian Jenkins had reached after
being hit by the pitcher, and ad-
vanced on Damon Quinn's hit,
which Lakeland's third baseman
couldn't handle. Both scored on-
Two other runs were added in
the next inning as Jasmin Thom-
as hit a two-run homer. St. Joe's
final runs were scored in the fifth
inning by virtue of a wild-
throwing Lakeland pitcher, (the
third used by Lakeland), who hit
several St. Joe batters, gave up
walks and wild pitches.
