Gulf Aire

Fish Cooker Is
Said Responsible

A late afternoon fire seriously dam-
aged the home of Mr. and Mrs. Marvin
Riley of 304 Gulf Aire Drive Sunday eve-
ning.
The fire started on a rear deck of the
# home and quickly spread to the garage
and rear section of the dwelling.
Riley and his family were at home
when the fire started, preparing to fry
fish in a bottle gas cooker on the out-
side deck. He said the cooker had been
lit and during the five minutes or so it
usually takes for the grease to get hot,
"we had gone inside to prepare the fish
for cooking. We heard a muffled
'whoosh!' and my daughter said she
smelled smoke. We went through the
back door to find a large portion of the
rear of our home in flames."
Riley surmises there was a leak in
the gas cooker, which caught escaping
gas on fire, burning the supply hose in
two, spraying the propane gas all over
the back wall of his home.


Rear of Marvin Riley home suffered heavy damage from blaze.


The fire damaged the deck, rear,
garage, family room and a bedroom
suite of the home before it was put out
by the combined efforts of fire depart-
ments from The Beaches, Highland
View and Port St. Joe.


"Those fellows did a professional
job," Riley said. "they went right to work
and kept the fire from spreading in my
home and also from damaging the
homes of my neighbors. I have nothing
but praise for them."


Wewahitchka Man Drowns In Bay Saturday


A 66-year-old Wewahitchka man became Gulf County's
first beach drowning victim of the year Saturday after-
naon, when he.died while swimming In the Gulf of Mexico.
near St. Joe Beach.,
According to the Gulf County Sheriffs office, Robert C.
Caster was pronounced dead by the Medical Examiner, Dr.
Richard Sybers, from drowning, following the swimming
accident.
Witnesses say Caster and his party were swimming juit
west of the Dixie Belle Curve, at the first turn-off adjacent
to the highway. Caster and two women in his party swam
out to a reef a short distance from shore. When they start-
ed back, Caster began to experience difficulties and the
two. women tried to help him, but were soon exhausted


themselves. Another man in the party attempted to help
the drowning man. but he went under and they were una-
ble to find him. ,
The accident occurred when the swimming party was
about half way back to the beach.
The Sheriffs Department logged a call for help at 2:00
p.m. The Gulf County Search and Rescue unit answered
the call and started a search for Caster's body.
At approximately 3:40 p.m., a team of three divers
from the Rescue Squad located Caster near where he went
down and recovered the body.
He was removed from the water, determined to be
dead and transferred to the Medical Examiners office in
Panama City for an autopsy.


Mexico Beach Heads Off Water Problems


Mexico Beach inaugurated a
project of improving their water
supply last week, in an attempt
to stave off any problems the sys-
tem may face in a few years down
the road.
According to two of the beach
communities' city commissioners,
Sylvia Whaley and Al Cathey, and
their city manager, John McIn-
nis, the city now has no problems
with their water, but planning
now may prevent a problem in
the future.
Mclnnis said the city has a
consistently higher than average
fluoride count in its water sup-
I ply, but it is still well below the
state levels for a safe fluoride lev-
el in drinking water.
"It's no secret we have this
high level of fluoride, but it is
also no secret that the level isn't
high enough to be dangerous to
people," Mclnnis said.
Mexico Beach presently has a
3.57 fluoride level, which trans-
lates to 3.57 parts to one million
parts of water. The state requires
a limit of an average of four parts
per million to get a consistent
safe rating. If the rating regularly
goes over four, the Department of
Environmental Regulation begins
to get into the act and require the
supplier to take steps to correct
the situation.
IN AGREEMENT
Councilwoman Sylvia Whaley
told The Star the commission is
in agreement to begin to look at
the situation to see if something
can be done and what alterna-
tives the city has. She said one of
these is to drill new wells, but
since the project is in such a pre-
liminary stage at this time, there
are no set directions as yet.
'We're still looking at what is
best for the city," Whaley said.
Cathey said the city received
a report from a testing laboratory
recently that their fluoride level
was at the four parts per million
level. 'We have since had the wa-
ter re-tested by the State Health
department and found our actual
level to be only 3.57," Cathey


said.
MISTAKE GETS ACTION
However, the mistaken high
reading wafs what has galvanized
the commission into action.


'We have been getting in-
creased fluoride levels over the
years," Whaley said.
Mclnnis said there is no rea-
son to think the situation will get


better by itself and the commis-
sion isn't going to proceed on this
assumption.
Mclnnis said the only remedy

Moore New Board Attorney


County Will



Rebuild H.V.



Water Tank


Gulf County's Commission
took a major step to improve the
water pressure and guarantee a
continuous supply Tuesday
night, when they approved a deci-
sion by the Highland View Water
Board to renovate the water tank
at Highland View and put it back
in service.
Two weeks ago, Commission-
er Ed Creamer broached the
question of what the Commission
was going to do with the old tank,
which served the Highland View
system when it pumped water
from its own wells.
The tank has not been used
since Highland View tied into the
supply line which serves the
Beaches Water system.
Creamer noted at the time
the tank was getting in bad
shape and a subsequent inspec-
tion by water tank people has re-
vealed the tank is actually dan-
gerous standing empty. 'We were
told it is more likely to fall if it is
empty than it is full," Ralph Rish,
BDE representative told the
Board.
Rish was instructed to ex-
plore the possible costs of taking
the tank down or repairing it.
Rish reported Tuesday it would
cost approximately $20,000 to
dismantle the tank and about
$40,000 to put it back in service.
Rish pointed out that a new tank
like the Highland View model
costs in the neighborhood of
$180,000.
Attorney William J. Rish ad-
vised the Board they could proba-
bly get a FHA grant or loan to re-
pair the tank and put it back into
service. 'That tank will increase
water pressure in the water sys-
tem and may keep St. Joe Beach
or Highland View from burning
down one of these days."
Rish said he would report by
the next meeting what the county
could do in securing the money
to rebuild.
The BDE representative said
the tank and legs were in fairly
good shape, but braces, ladders,
catwalks and tie rods were all in
bad shape and in need of replace-
ment or repair.
MOORE REPLACES RISH
County Attorney William J.
Rish, after notifying the County
Commission two weeks ago he in-
tended to step down from his po-
sition in the near future, made
his decision formal Tuesday by
turning in his resignation from
the Board's position by October
1.
Rish said he felt a need to cut
back on his responsibilities and
devote more time to his practice,
family and other interests he is
involved in.
The popular county attorney
has served in the position for
nearly 25 years and says he had
a good relationship with every
board he has represented.
In addition to his duties with
the county, Rish also serves as
attorney for the Port St. Joe City
Commission-a position he will

maintain--operates an active law
practice and is involved in real
estate and farming activities.
Commissioner Ed Creamer
made a motion that Port St. Joe
attorney Robert M. Moore be
Rish's replacement as the county
attorney, at the same retainer
and service fee.
Creamer's motion ran into
discussion when Nathan Peters
made a substitute motion that
the board take applications. Gort-
man seconded Peters motion.
When it came time for voting,
Peters' motion was defeated with
he and Gortman the only ones
casting an approving vote. When
Creamer's motion was then con-
sidered, Peters cast the only
"nay" vote, employing Moore on a
4-1 vote.
Moore has been an active at-
torney in Gulf county for 22
years, with 20 years of continu-
ous practice here in Port St. Joe.
Presently, he is also the Assistant
Public Defender for the 14th Ju-
dicial Circuit in addition to his
private practice.
Moore will assume his new

TRIM Notices Bring

Shark 100 Club
The 1989-90 edition of the Shark 100
Club swung into operation this past week,
recruiting members for the coming school
athletic year.
This is the second year for the fledgling
club which has organized to finance equip-
ment and needs of the entire athletic de-
partment at Port St. Joe High School. Last
year, the club had some 68 members, who


paid their $100 membership fee. This year,
the club is shooting for 100 members and
has established a goal of purchasing a
complete video recorder and accessories.
In the photo above, club secretary-
treasurer, Teedy Nobles, center, accepts-the
first two memberships of the year from
Ralph Roberson, left and Rex Buzzett,
right.
Members receive identifying caps, car
tags, listing on a billboard which is dis-
played at sporting activities and reserve
parking at home football games.


One of the less welcome piec-
es of mail to be delivered in Port
St. Joe this year was handed out
over the week end, when the an-
nual TRIM notices were mailed
out by the Gulf County Commis-
sion.
The TRIM notices alert the
property owners of the county as
to how much their property is
valued and how much tax the
taxing authorities of the county is
levying on that particular piece of
property in the coming fiscal
year.
The TRIM notice also serves
to give the property owner a max-
imum level at which taxes can be
levied during the coming year
without personally contacting the
individual property owners.
Some 11,961 individual no-
tices were sent out in the mail-
ing, all of which indicated more of
a growing change in Gulf
county's taxable valuations and a
growing tax bill because various


complaints
millage rates throughout the
county were not reduced by the
same percentage.
Taxing authorities have taken
advantage, In some instances, of
the increasing valuations to in-
crease taxes without increasing
millage. In some cases,- millage
was actually reduced, but proper-
ty owners.saw a hefty increase in
taxes to be levied.
~ Most of the change in proper-
ty valuation was brought about
by a state Department of Reve-
nue ruling that values will be lev-
ied on a current sales experience
of like property.
For the past few years, the
Department has been insisting
on this yardstick for valuations
and an equalization of property
values in the county.
This was the first year the full
impact of the ruling was felt
county-wide, causing many to
question their values and com-
pare them with other properties.

Go It Alone

Here we are back again, with the second verse of the same
old song.
If you don't care to read further, let us, right here in the
second paragraph, make it clear that we favor Gulf County pur-
chasing two or three garbage packer trucks, buy a few station-
ary green boxes to place strategically throughout the county,
and go into the business of a house to house county-wide col-
lection service.
That said, let us get into the back-up for our position,
which is not all based on just an opinion, rather than actual
facts or experience.
Most of you know that we have served several years as a
City Commissioner for the City of Port St. Joe. During that
time, we became at least noddingly familiar with garbage collec-
tion, its costs and its capabilities. Based on this several years
of experience, we feel the county can purchase two or three
loader-packers on a three year contract, patrol the entire
county at least once a week, pick up household garbage on a
mail-box basis, service strategically positioned green boxes
with the same trucks while making these rounds, keeping most
of the county solid waste problem under control.
We definitely feel that this can be done for less than $10.00
per customer per month. And, we're not talking about that fee
being $9.99, either. We're thinking more like a figure of $6.00
to $8.00 per month.
Chairman Birmingham made the remark at Thursday's
hearing that the city of Port St. Joe did the best job of operating
a garbage collection service anywhere around here. The City
makes the collection service pay for itself. In making the in-
come balance the expense, the City charges $6.00 per month
for a twice a week pick-up. We happen to know their methods
are very inefficient because they still offer pick-up from the rear
of the lot which takes extra time and labor.
If the county couldn't pick up the same garbage from curb-
side, once a week, for somewhere near the same rate, some-
thing would be wrong. This proposed rate is considerably less
than the proposed $11.00 per month suggested by a private
contractor.
On top of all that, a county service would use local people,
rather than hiring out-of-county employees and carrying all
that fee money out of the county. It would keep the benefits at
home in every phase of the operation, from jobs, to personal in-
terest, to someone responsible to the public for fielding any
problems.


Think TRIM!
This blurb wasn't the one originally written for this spot this
week. After receiving our TRIM notice this week, we found it ex-
pedient to make a change in subjects and express the feelings
one get when he feels he has been shafted!
The ones we blame for the condition of our TRIM notice and
the trauma it has put us in, are the taxing bodies in Gulf
County and the State of Florida Department of Revenue.
The DOR has insisted our local-Property Appraiser hike cer-
tain property values in our county, offering, the opinion that
some properties are not on the rolls for nearly enough money.
We won't argue that point, but we find it hard to deal with the
fact that properties formerly wholly exempt, and thus tax free,
are still wholly exempt and tax free. If we're going to change
valuations, let's allow everybody the privilege of forking over
when the tax notices are sent out in November.
Some of our local governments are bragging they are not
raising millage. Heck! we reckon not! With the valuation hike
imposed on some of our properties, even a moron could bal-
ance budgets and meet all the needs, real and imagined. It
takes a person with some imagination to balance a budget
without getting a hefty hike in additional money. This addi-
tional money is tax money.
We haven't had time to figure it up yet, but it appears as if
our taxes-dollars paid, not millage-have taken their largest
hike ever in one year here in Gulf County.
One of the ways to cut some of this new dollar need is to
make subscription to garbage collection mandatory and place a
fee on the service.
As one of Gulf County's tax payers, who must pay the bill
for cleaning garbage out of the woods and hauling it to the in-
cinerator when the Commission exercises its "economies" of re-
moving the collection trailers to save pennies or dollars ... we
insist on it!


lHunker Down with Kes (



Bride of Frankenstein


Let me set this scene and see
if it rings a bell. You walk in,
scared to death, looking around
as if something is about to jump
out and get you. Your friends are
chattering away on both sides -
but you don't hear them. Why
didn't you run away? Listen,
when you left the house this
morning you could have just kept
going. You and Bobby could'a
hopped a train and been in Jack-
sonville by now. By the time you
finally decided to come home,
your mom would be so glad -
she'd never send you back. May-
be we could still sneak out
togeth there she is. Good golly,
she's 10 feet tall! Look at them
shoulders! She used to be a mud
wrestler for sure! Meanest eyes
I've ever seen! How unlucky can
you get? Her husband is even
afraid of her! We could be halfway
to Jacksonville by now. Let's drop
to the floor and worm our way .
. Everybody freezes as she looks
over the victims with her green
eyes a'spitting fire. She clears her


throat, everybody in the back
faints. We brace for the hurricane
as she speaks, "Good morning
boys and girls, welcome to the
fifth grade."
Yeah, yeah, we've heard that
welcome speech before. Right
after it comes the three page re-
port you've got to write telling all
about yourself and what you did
on your summer vacation. Listen,
I'm just a boy and we didn't go no
where for a summer vacation; We
just milked the cows and played
baseball and that ain't going to
take up three pages.
Shucks, I tell you what we
liked to see. We'd like to see her
catch this knife in her teeth. I bet
she could do it, too. Or how
about getting her to pound a few
40-penny nails into that oak floor
with her fist. I tell you, she's a
rough one. Where do they keep
finding these people? Bobby said
they came from Alcatraz. Aw,
they closed that place down years
ago. "I know they're all out
teaching now."


She just straightened her
neckerchief and put in a fresh
mint. Here comes that talk about
studying hard and applying our-
selves and what wonderful po -
poten potential potenieaal -
po-something that we have. The
whole world is ours! You notice
how they all almost swoon when
they say that. We can become
doctors or lawyers. It's always
doctors or lawyers. Trouble is, it's
never crossed my mind to be a
doctor or a lawyer. I'm going to
grow up and play big league base-
ball or become a cowboy. I
haven't decided which yet.
Man, if we could have just
stayed in the fourth grade. Yeah,
Miss Charlene liked us. Heck, she
talked mean and rough, but she'd
let you do anything you wanted
to. Remember how she'd let us
move the desk back and kick field
goals. If you couldn't read the
next word and you paused a little
bit she'd help. you with it. She
made us learn all those countries
but she put us in teams and

made a contest out of it. Shoot,
that was almost fun. And remem-
ber how we'd do the math. On the
day of the test we'd all go in tell-
ing her we just didn't understand
it. She'd work every problem on
the board before the test! She
wanted us to do good!
I tell you we were lucky. And
now we've got this ex-army drill
sergeant. She wears those long
dresses to hide her tattoos. Hey,
fellas, this is just the first day,
let's give her a chancel I'd give
her a chance, right over a cliff; I'll
sit in there but she ain't going to
teach me anything. Now wait a
minute, we said these same
things about Miss Charlene and
she turned out to be great. Well,
yeah, but that's different. Ain't no

Big, Little, Dead or Live Snakes. .. I Give 'Em All A Wide Path


THE NEWS WAS full, last
week, of the Fort Lauderdale fam-
ily which had a 20-foot python
living under their home and they
wanted it removed.
Somehow this family thought
there was Just something unset-
tling about living in a home with
a 20-foot snake making its abode
directly under the floor. Appar-
ently the family knew the snake
was there and still maintained
residence in the home. Brave
people!
This snake was thought to
have escaped from a nearby park
a while back and crawled under
the house, existing on small ani-
mals it caught.
The snake was apparently en-
joying the arrangement. There
was a steady supply of food, it
was warm, dry and above all, no-
body crawled under the house to


bother the snake.
It had the- best of snake
worlds.
Witnesses said the reptile
would catch a grown raccoon and
gobble it down like eating marsh-
mallows. Raccoons must be fat-
tening. The snake weighed 250
pounds.
WHILE THE SNAKE was liv-
ing the life of Reilly, the people
who lived in the house were living
the life of dread and fear. Even
though theywanted the snake re-
moved, they wouldn't touch it.
I don't blame them. It doesn't
pay to touch anything which
weighs 250 pounds without mak-
ing preparations first.
Finally, though, there was a
team of four men, who specialize
in removing objectionable things
and/or animals from homes, who
came to get the snake out and al-
low the family a night of peaceful
sleep.


I guess that down in Fort
Lauderdale, a team of four men
can make a comfortable living
specializing in removing undesir-
able life from homes, business or
other buildings.
The nearest thing we have to
such a team up here in Gulf
County is Wendell Campbell and
his Sure Shot Pest Control ser-
vice. Wendell will jump right in
and take care of your bugs, spi-
ders, fleas, cockroaches, mice
and such. On occasion, he
spreads out to catch a rat or two.
I'm not sure if Wendell would be
available for a 20-foot python.
He told me once a sweet
young thing called him a snake
in the grass when he was going
to college, but that's not the
same thing as getting a snake out
from under the house.
You can try Wendell on
snakes if you want to, but I'm not
going to risk it. Wendell will
weigh close to 250 pounds him-


self and you remember my advice
on 250 pounders!
LIVING, BREATHING snakes
in, on top of, under, or beside the
house, give me the creeps.
Snakes give me the creeps.
Pictures of snakes give me
the creeps.
Live or dead, a snake's place
is where I'm not.
But, alas, we have a snake in
the family. It's not one of those
snakes who walk around on their
hind feet, either, although we
probably have one or two of those
around.
And, talk about your cooinci-
dences. The snake in our family
is also a python, but he's not
near 20 feet in length, nor does
he weigh 250 pounds. Yett He
also stays out of my presence.
Actually, I. have seen the snake
only once and I got the first and
last glimpse I wanted of this fami-
ly."pet".


Now, I'm not kidding. I wish I
were making up this part of this
piece, but I swear I am not. It's
not just a coincidence that the
family in Fort Lauderdale found
this 20 foot python under their
house. It's God's warning to us
that the same thing can happen
to us if the family snake remains
in residency.
ONE OF MY grandsons paid
real U.S. currency for that snake
I'm talking about, and keeps it in
his bedroom.
Really!
When the grandson is feeling
good, he takes that slimy snake
out of its open cage, wraps it
around his neck and walks
around as if its a perfectly natu-
ral thing to do.
Personally, I don't see how
the grandson can sleep in the
same room where that shake is-
coiled up inside its little nook-like
cage, with no double-locked door -


on the front. Actually there is no
door at all on the front.
The critter is finicky with its
eating. As a matter of fact, it
hasn't eaten anything during the
more than a year it has been in
my grandson's possession, which
he didn't force feed it.
I think the animal crawls into
the kitchen at night and raids the
refrigerator, or catches a mouse
or roach on the sly while every-
one is gone during the day.
But Bill feeds the thing. He
puts a hotdog on the end of an
arrow and pushes it down the py-
thon's throat a way, then mas-
sages its stomach, forcing the
hotdog into the snake's stomach.
That thing would starve be-
fore I would massage its stom-
ach!
The real mystery about this
-snake is how Bill can get away
with taking it on a date with his
girl friend on occasion. Either it's
true love or the girl is blind.

Suits and Ties
Recently a visiting dignitary was honored by the Port St. Joe Ro-
tary Club at a dinner meeting.
The president of the Rotary Club asked me to attend. I respect-
fully Pieclined the invitation, but reconsidered after he reminded me
that I was a member, on the Board of Directors and an officer in the
club. He also made some mention of my being kicked out if I didn't
attend.
Anyway, I dressed in my Sunday best, a suit and tie, because
the president failed to mention that the meeting was an informal af-
fair. I was miserable all night
I'm convinced that the Lord had nothing to do with the creation
-of. suits and neck-ties. The tuxedo, I'm certain beyond all doubt,
was an invention of the devil himself.
For years I dressed in a suit each working day. I also wore one
almost every Sunday morning to church. That left only one day for
me to dress casually and relax. There's no wonder I'm in the condi-
tion, I'm in today; the ties I wore all those years had the circulation
cut off to my brain, I think.
Admittedly, there are those who look relaxed dressed in a suit. I
can't help but feel that way down deep in the recesses of their
minds there zis a small voice saying, "Please deliver me from this
garment I'm ivearing and this noose around my neck. Let me wan-
der the rest pf my life in tennis shoes and shorts and a size-too-
large, worn-out golf shirt."
-, One of my brothers had me believing, at one time, that he was
comfortable in a suit and tie. One night, several years ago, while I
was visiting him in Atlanta and we were sharing a bottle of spirits,
he confessed to me that he was and had been for years really
miserable dressed in a suit and tie. The next morning, however, and
to this day, he denies ever making such a statement.
People who really like to be uncomfortable attend a lot of con-
ventions. I've been to several in my life, but I've never been to one
that, at some time during the festivities, didn't require that every-
one attend a formal dinner or banquet. I have always wondered why
anyone would want to ruin a good time by requiring everyone to
dress in formal attire to drink, eat and listen to a boring person
make a fool of himself by talking for an hour or so to a group of
people who could care less about what he was saying.
These same people further complicate a good time by arranging,
meetings,-usually early the next morning, with more boring speak-
ers who talk into infinity, while everyone is trying to recover from all
they had to drink the night before to get them through the boring
speech at the banquet.
If there are really people who enjoy dressing in suits and ties
and are comfortable, I wonder why they don't sit around their
homes in them. Better yet, why don't they mow the lawn or play golf
in a suit and tie?
The reason is, I think, that they are as miserable as the rest of
us but may not know it.
If, on judgment day, I were given the choice of going to the fiery
furnace below or wearing a tuxedo to a formal banquet each day for
eternity, I might ask for a while to think it over. And I'll just bet you
that I wouldn't be the only one thinking about it!

the merchants knew they needed
to do some face-lifting to the
downtown area, "But, we didn't
know where to start until Dr.
Wisemantel contacted us with
the suggestion that we leave the
matter up to his department and
his students as a project and
means of obtaining experience in
their future field."

Police Raids Bottle Club


At Least Two
Being Called
Before Judge
Port St. Joe police joined
agents of the state Alcoholic Bev-
erages and Tobacco agency Fri-
day afternoon, in raiding an es-
tablishment in Port St. Joe.
According to Police Chief Carl
Richter, at least two persons will
be ordered to appear before Gulf
County Judge David Taunton to
defend charges being made
against them as a result of the
raid.
The late afternoon sweep was
made through The Bottle Club, at
113 Main Street. The club has a
city occupational license issued
to Earnest Jones to operate a
bottle club at the building. The
requisites of the license are that
the owner cannot sell liquor by
the bottle or the drink. They can
dispense only set-ups legally, un-
der the terms of their license.
Sale of alcoholic beverages by
drink or bottle requires, a state
beverage license, which the Bottle
Club does not have.

search warrant. The agents found
approximately $2,000 worth of
liquor on the premises, causing
the agents to seek charges of the
sale of alcoholic beverages with-
put a proper license.
Richter said that at last two
people will be required to appear
before the Judge to face the
pending charges, but declined to
identify those facing charges.

to be suggested this early in the
game is a reverse osmosis filtra-
tion system which would cost the
city an estimated $230,000. This
system uses a special membrane
to filter water and then mix it
with water with a lower fluoride
reading to gain a lower average.
Whaley said, "It's too early to
tell, yet, if we will use this sys-
tem. There may be something
better out there."
DER SATISFIED
Mclnnis said, 'The DER has
told us they have no quarrel with
our water as it is. It meets all
their standards. They have not
contacted us at any time to warn
us we are getting out of line with
our water quality. What we are
doing now is because the com-
mission feels they need to in or-
der to maintain a quality water
system. They are not being made
or threatened into doing any-
thing."
The city manager said, "Noth-

citizens has prompted the com-
mission to move in this matter of
improving the quality of its wa-

THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE, FL THURSDAY 9


Miss Cheryl June Lewis Becomes the Bride of

Walter Kevin Roberson In Candlelight Ceremony


Cheryl June Lewis, of Talla-
hassee. and Walter Kevin Rober-
son, of Port St. Joe, were joined
in marriage on Saturday, the
twenty-second of July, at Long
Avenue Baptist Church in Port
St. Joe. Dr. Daniel W. Duncan,
pastor of the church, officiated
the candlelight, double-ring cere-
mony.
The bride is the daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. Theodore Turza, of
Tallahassee, and the late Leo Y.
Lewis. She is the granddaughter
of H.G. Reynolds of Birmingham,
Alabama, and the late Letha
Reynolds, also of Birmingham.
She is also the granddaughter of
Reverend and Mrs. L.Y. Lewis Sr.,
of Cairo, Georgia.
The groom is the son of Mr.
and Mrs. Walter H. Roberson of
Port St. Joe. He is the grandson
of the late Wiley A. Phillips Sr.
and the late Velia King Phillips.
He is also the grandson of the
late Herman Monroe Roberson
and the late Leila Gradon Rober-
son.
The bride was escorted down
the aisle by her brother-in-law,
Rick Lamberson, of Port St. Joe
and given in marriage by her
mother and brother-in-law. Her
gown was made of white satin.
The fitted bodice came to a point
at the waist which was accented
by a cluster of seed pearl fila-
ments. The long fitted sleeves
came to a point just below the
wrist and were accented with
Schiffli lace window appliques
and pearls. The illusion-covered
decollete neckline was trimmed in
beaded and sequined Schiflli lace
and the shoulders were accented
by satin petals with pearl fila-
ment trim. The floor-length, full
skirt was also of satin with Schiff-
li lace window appliques. The
semi-cathedral train, which
flowed from the waist with a large
satin bow trimmed with a satin
rose, petals, and pearl filaments,
was completed by satin petals
and scalloped Schiffli lace edging.
The bride's fingertip length veil
had scalloped edges and was
adorned with pearls. The head-
piece was of satin rosettes with
pearl trimmed satin leaves and
long pearl filaments. The bride
carried a beautiful cascading
bouquet of tiny white and pink
roses and rose-colored mums.
The bouquet was accented by
white shimmering tulle, pearl fila-
hments, and rose and white satin
ribbons.
The bride carried family tradi-
tion with her down the aisle. In
her bouquet was pinned a cameo,
which belonged to her maternal
grandmother, and a linen and
lace handkerchief belonging to
her paternal grandmother. She
wore the garter her father gave to
her mother when they were mar-
ried, and had a new penny placed
in her shoe by her brother-in-law.
Miss Leanne Callaway, a
childhood friend of the bride from
Tallahassee, was the maid of hon-
or. Mrs. Vickie ILamberson of Port
St. Joe, the bride's sister, was
matron of honor. High school
friends of the bride from Tallahas-
see, Miss Heather Dunham and
Miss Christine Van Atta, were
bridesmaids. Miss Kimberly Lam-
berson, bride's niece, of Port St.
Joe, was the junior bridesmaid.


Miss Karen Waller, the groom's
niece, of Port St. Joe. was the
flower girl.
The bridesmaids wore hand-
made dresses of crepe back satin
in colonial rose. The dresses
came to a point at the waist and
the back plunged to a deep V just
above the sash which was tied in
a bow. The dresses were accented
by wreaths, which the girls wore
in their hair, of pink and rose
flowers and rose ribbons. The
bouquets were clouds of shim-
mering white tulle, rose-colored
mums, pearl filaments and rose
and white ribbons. The junior
bridesmaid wore a hand-made
dress of crepe back satin in colo-
nial rose also. Her dress came to
a point above the waist and was
accented by bows on the shoul-
ders. She wore a wreath and car-
ried a bouquet identical to the
bridesmaids'. The flower girl wore
a hand-made dress identical to
the junior bridesmaid. She wore a
barrett of pink and rose flowers
and rose ribbons in her hair and
carried a satin and lace basket
filled with pink rose petals, which
were scattered in front of the
bride.
Best man was Tommy Ford of
Port St. Joe, friend of the groom.
Groomsmen, all friends of the
groom, were Rick Pickron and
Tommy Williams of Port St. Joe,
and Mike and Rick Webber of
Panama City. Ring bearer was
Ricky Lamberson of Port St. Joe,
nephew of the bride. The ushers
were Tyler Ford of Port St. Joe,
and Chris Roberson, nephew of
the groom, also of Port St. Joe.
Candle lighters were Chris Cox
and Darrell Linton, both of Port
St. Joe.
The groom wore a black tuxe-
do with tails and a black bow tie
and cummerbund. His bouton-
niere was a white rose accented
with tiny pink flowers and baby's
breath. The groomsmen, ushers,
and candle lighters wore match-
ing tuxedos with rose bow ties
and cummerbunds, and pink
rose boutonnieres. The ring bear-
er was attired identical to the rest
of the wedding party. He carried a
white satin pillow with streamers,
a white satin rose, and two gold
rings. The pillow was accented by
Schiffli lace identical to that on
the bride's gown.
The church was illuminated
by ninety-six tall white candles.
The candelabra was adorned by
white flowers, greenery, rose-
colored peace lilies,. and white
doves. The mothers' pew markers
were tall candelabra holding a
single white candle adorned with
flowers matching the other cande-
labra. The unity candle stand and
the grandmothers' pew was
adorned with matching white sat-
in bows. Anne Strait directed the
wedding, following a tradition of
directing Roberson weddings.
Mike Handy returned from
Huntsville, Alabama, to play the
piano, and Janice Cox, longtime
friend of the family, played the or-
gan. After the mothers were seat-
ed, Kay Geoghagan sang "The
Wedding Song". Vickie Lamber-
son sang 'The Lord's Prayer"
while the couple was kneeling. A
trio composed of Kay Geoghagan,
Sarah Lamberson, and Vickie
Lamberson sang "A Woman's


Prayer" while the couple lit the
unity candle. The bride's grandfa-
ther, Reverend Leo Y. Lewis, said
a beautiful prayer for the couple
wishing them many blessings and
urging them to keep God first in
their lives. As a memento of the
wedding, the bride gave her
mother and the groom's mother
long stemmed roses.
After the ceremony, a recep-
tion was given by the bride's par-
ents In the Family Life Center.
The decorations consisted of
white lattice panels, palms, holly
plants, and ivy. The tables were
covered in white satin tablecloths
and lace overlays with rose-
colored ribbons. The wedding
cake was adorned with rose-
colored flowers, white doves,
white shimmering tulle, and rose
mums matching the bride's bou-
quet. The groom's cake was a de-
licious carrot cake topped with
his initials in rose-colored icing.
On the groom's table was a hand-
made music box with a bride and
groom, which played 'The Wed-


ding March". The music box was
made and given as a gift by the
bride's sister, Vickie Lamberson.
It was the centerpiece on one of
the tables at a shower given for
the bride at the church. Hostess-
es at the reception were Mrs.
Sandra Lamberson and Mrs. Ca-
thy Colbert, of Port St. Joe: Mrs.
Debra Little, long time friend of
the groom and his family, also of
Port St. Joe; and Miss Lynn Wil-
kinson, of Titusville, daughter of
a childhood friend of the bride's
mother. Music at the reception
was provided by Mike Handy.
Tulle bags filled with birdseed
and tied with rose satin ribbons,
which the bride's mother made,
were passed out by Kimberly
Lamberson, bride's niece, and
Amanda Jones, of Birmingham,
Alabama, bride's cousin. The
bride wore her mother's corsage
upon leaving the church.
After a wedding trip to New
Orleans, a surprise gift from the
groom, the couple will live in Tal-
lahassee.

Allison Lynn Smith and


Douglas
Allison Lynn Smith and
Douglas D. Powless were united
in holy matrimony in a beautiful
candlelight ceremony on July 8 in
the First Baptist Church of
Blountstown.
The bride is the daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. Marion Milo Smith
of Blountstown. She is the grand-
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ted
Frary of Port St. Joe and Mr. and
Mrs. William S. Smith of Alford,
and the late William P. Dockery of

of Mr. and Mis. F.D. Powless of
Tallahassee and the grandson of
the late Mr. and Mrs. R.E. Pow-
less of Fremont, Ohio, and the
late Mr. and Mrs. George Burris
of Payne, Ohio.
The Reverend David Williams,
assisted by the Reverend Hurshel
Knowles, officiated the impressive
double-ring nuptial rites. Mrs.
Darryl Taylor directed the wed-
ding party.
Nuptial music was performed
by Howard Johnson, Jr. Soloists

gether", "Surely The Presence" by
Mrs. Adams and "The Lord's
#I Priayer" by Mr. Taylor while the

Mrs. Adams was the pianist.
Among several organ selections
preceding the six o'clock ceremo-
ny, the wedding party entered the
sanctuary to Purcell's 'Trumpet
Voluntary" and the bride, escort-
ed. by her father, entered to the
traditional "Bridal Chorus" by
Wagner. The wedding party exited
to Mendelssohn's "Wedding

Chimes announced the arri-
val of the bride and her father.
Given in marriage by her parents,

mal gown of white satin and crys-
tal organza. It had a sweetheart
neckline, full puffed sleeves cov-
ered with organza ruffles, and a
fitted bodice detailed with Schiffli

tilly lace tiara accented with side
*sprays of lilies-of-the-valley. It
* had a blusher and a fingertip veil
S -attached. The bride carried 'a
hand-tied cascading bouquet of
champagne roses, miniature gar-
denias, miniature- carnations,
waxflowers, statice and button
poms, surrounded by glacier ivy
and fresh ming fern. Sprays of

The best man and groomsmen
wore granite grey couture tuxedos
with grey satin accessories.
The sanctuary was lovely,
decorated with a fifteen-candle
arch, two spirals and four candle
trees, decorated with rose-colored
lilies, pixie carnations, freesia,
gladioli and alstermeria. The focal
point was a large arrangement of
gladioli, fugi mums, alstermeria
and greenery, making a sunburst
effect-behind the altar. Large Bos-
ton ferns completed the setting.
Following the ceremony, the
bride's parents hosted a reception
at the church fellowship hall. In
the foyer was a very large portrait
of the bride in her wedding gown.
Guests were greeted by Mrs. Ho-
ward Johnson, Sr. and Mrs. Ter-

sons of our own. For the purpose
of this article we will use the well
known story of Moses In the bul-
rushes. A careful look will dis-
close five different concepts of
truth which provide compelling
criteria for decision makers.
First there was the Pharaoh.
His greatest desire was to control
the birth rate of the Hebrews.
Their large numbers were poten-
tially a threat to his security. The
solution was to take the lives of
the male babies at birth. From a
pragmatic viewpoint, this was a
practical solution. He felt that he
had no other choice.
Pharaoh made his decision on
the basis of self-interest and con-
temporary wisdom.
Then there were the mid-
wives. They could not bring them-
selves to obey the Pharaoh's com-
mandments. They were pro-life.
They contrived to lie to Pharaoh
and tell him that. the Hebrew la-
dies called them too late. They
said that the babies had already
arrived and were breathing when
they got on the scene. They felt
that they had no other choice.
The midwives made their de-
cision on the basis of religious
training and faithful convictions.
Moses' mother is our third ex-
ample. She knew that she was

The princess made he

in a confusing world. There were
pressures on her that she was
not ready for. She was exposed to
different world-views with con-'

she didn't possess enough experi-

delayed making her own deci-

She felt that she had no' other

Moses' sister made her deci-

She was not exposed to violence

dren's ballet company. She was
also honored with a 'Distin-
guished Teacher Award' in Wash-
ington, D.C. following the many
students she has placed in pro-
fessional ballet companies
throughout the world.
The Cersosimo family say
they are happy to be here and
-want to contribute,- as' much as,
their time will allow to Joining in
community affairs. Ms. Fairrie
wants to start her own ballet and
drama school which has its goals
set on providing the community
with a small performing group of
both actors and dancers. These
little artists would have to be pre-
pared to take at least two classes
per week and demonstrate a real
interest in these art forms.
The ballet and drama classes
together with jazz classes will be
taught exclusively by Fiona Fair-
rie, and are open to all students
who understand the commitment


they will have to have.
The classes are not geared to-
ward recreation, but to a solid
understanding of both art forms.
Classes will begin at the Episco-
pal Church Hall on Tuesdays and
Thursday from 3:30 4:30, 4:30
- 5:30, and 5:30 6:30 p.m. Age
groups will be 6-8 years, 8-10
years, 12 years and up. For fees
and more information, please call
Fiona at 229-6532 any time after
6 p.m. or leave a message and
your phone call will be returned.
If there is enough Interest
shown in the community, The
Bay Arts Alliance in Panama City
will help fund and organize this
endeavor, making it a non-profit
venture, as it realizes the impor-
tance of quality work and educa-
tion in the arts. It feels certain
with Ms. Farrie's experience and
expertise in the dance world, she
can create a wonderful and excit-
ing endeavor.

Ms. Fairrie is looking forward
to hearing from you before Labor
Day, or bring your child or chil-
dren to class the first day of
classes, September 5th, 3:30 -

SOME INFORMATION ABOUT _1
SNAKEBITE
Venomous snake bite wounds first appear as small white
wheals surrounding each of the two punctures. The wheal
may progress through color changes of red, blue, green or
purple. There can be swelling and an intense burning
sensation. There may be shock, a weak, thready pulse, and S
cold clammy perspiration with faintness.
Much damage can be caused by well-meaning persons
r whose attempts at first aid may result in excessively deep w
incisions, and tourniquets applied too tightly for too long a
period. The damage here can exceed the bite itself. Get to a
doctor or hospital quickly. m

"This Is the Year I've Been Looking Forward to"


"This is the year I have been
looking forward to," Port St. Joe
High School football coach Phil
Lanford told the Rotary Club last
_-. Thursday at their regular noon
: .meeting.
"We have been forced into a
tough schedule, but we have a
tough and seasoned team to play
that schedule," the coach said.
He pointed out the team will have
a good compliment of experienced
players and maturity as well, to
meet that hard schedule with.
The Sharks for 1989 have
been dropped from the schedules
of such schools as Apalachicola
and Bonifay. 'They wouldn't play
us," Lanford said. 'We picked up


Perry and Chipley, but only if we
will play there this first year. This
gives us only four home games
this year and six out of town
games."
Another change this year is
that Blountstown is no longer in
the same district with Port St.
Joe. 'There was only one team in
the state which was placed in a
new district-and that team was
Blountstown. They will be playing
in the district with Bonifay, Ver-
non and Chipley, while we re-
main with Havana, Florida High
and Monticello." he said.
As for the Shark's team, the
head coach said there is at least
one year of experience at every
position this year. "We have sev-


en offensive starters back rom
last year and nine others with a
lot of experience. We will start
only one sophomore this year.
The remainder of our starters will
be either a junior or a senior. We
will have about three players go-
ing both ways, with the other po-
sitions changing as we go from
offense to defense. We want to
play all the young men we can,"
he said.
"Most of our defense, is back
for the new season. This defense
gave up only 83 points all last
year in the 11 games we played,"
Lanford continued as he re-
mained optimistic about his
squad.


While the head coach was op-
timistic about the future of the
Port St. Joe team, he pointed out
the foes the Sharks will meet this
year are also expecting a nucleus
of experience to return. He point-
ed out that Wewahitchka gradu-
ated only a few men, Blount-
stown will have most of its team
returning, DeFuniak Springs,
Monticello and Marianna should
have at least half of last year's
squad returning from their tough
teams of last year. "Florida High
should be down this year, but
don't count on it!" Lanford said.
The Sharks were eight and
three last year, which has been
largely responsible for its sched-
uling problems this year. "They


Caterpillars and Ornamentals

Late Summer Brings an Invasion to Attack Your Shrubbery, Azaleas


By Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Director
During late summer, caterpil-
lars cause problems for gardeners
all over our state. As you know,
caterpillars are the larval stage of


butterflies and moths. While
many of the winged adults are at-
tractive, the damage caused by
the larvae certainly is not. Be-
cause caterpillars are ravenous
feeders, they can cause consider-

able damage in a short time. So
early detection and prompt coun-
ter measures are very important.
There are many kinds of pest
caterpillars far too many to cov-
er in this article. So, I will talk
about a few of the common ones
you may encounter, and com-
ment on some basic control
measures. My information on cat-
erpillars was provided by Exten-
sion Entomologist Dr. Don Short,
of the University of Florida's Insti-
tute of Food and Agricultural Sci-
ences.
Sod webworm and fall army
worms seriously damage, 1awps.
and it's not unusual.for bdth to
attack at the same time. -Web--
worms are smallest of the two
species, reaching a length of only
about three-quarters of an inch,
compared to one-and-a-half inch-
es for army worms. In general,
both are greenish in the young
stage, turning brown at the ma-
ture stage. Their feeding is simi-
lar, resulting in notched or
ragged leaf edges. However, web-
worms tend to feed in patches,
while army worms cause more
scattered damage.
The orange dog caterpillar is
a common pest on citrus trees.
It's black with white marking,
and slimy looking. Its eggs, which
look like small yellow beads, are
laid on the newest plant growth.
At maturity, the orange dog worm
becomes a swallowtailed butter-
fly.
If you've ever suddenly felt a
sharp, stinging sensation while
pruning a plant, you may have
come in contact with an 10 (eye-
oh) moth caterpillar. This cater-
pillar is green with two stripes,

one white and one maroon down
both sides of its body. It has
many clumps of stiff poisonous
hairs. Touching these is painful
to most people. In some cases,
the reaction is bad enough to re-
quire hospitalization. The 10
moth caterpillar, which is only
one of several stinging varieties,
is found on such plants as hibis-
cus, poinsettias, palms, and
many others.
Caterpillars can be controlled
mechanically, or with chemical
sprays. If the caterpillars are
large, and are few in number,
they can be removed from plants
by hand. If egg masses are recog-
nized, these can be destroyed be-
fore they hatch. Chemical control
materials include sevin, malathi-
on, and bacillus thuringiensis.
Sevin is a stomach poison,
that's good to use on small cater-
pillars that are hard to find. How-
ever, sevin isn't a very good con-
tact poison. So it can't be used
against caterpillars that are al-
ready quite large.
Malathion is a good contact
poison, but a poor stomach poi-
son. So, it's best for use on large
caterpillars. Malathion must be
applied thoroughly, to insure con-
.tact with all the caterpillars. This
can be hard to do especially on
large shrubs and trees.
Bacillus Thuringlensis isn't a
chemical. It's a bacterial concen-
trate that's deadly only to cater-
pillars. It won't harm any other
insects.
When applying pesticides,
you should always use caution
and common sense. Avoid contact
with the concentrates, and stay
out of the spray drift. Read the
product label carefully, and follow
all directions exactly.
