City to Build



Mausoleum


at Ho


Hill


Poll Shows Considerable


Support for
Port St. Joe will have a 96-
crypt mausoleum in operation by
early spring of next year, as a re-
sult of action taken by the City
Commission at their Tuesday
night meeting.
For some time the Commis-
sion has been gathering informa-
tion from mausoleum operators
to make up their mind about of-
fering the service at Holly Hill Ce-
metery, in addition to the conven-
tional underground burial.
Tuesday night, the Commis-
sion decided to construct the 94-
crypt installation, with the City
contracting the construction and
handling the business end of the
transaction.
Previously, the Commission
had considered contracting with
a professional to handle the en-
tire operation for a fee.
The call for construction bids
are currently being prepared with
plans for having them opened
and a contract awarded on No-
vember 7.
RESULT OF POLL
The Commission decided to
develop the mausoleum as a re-
sult of a recent poll they conduct-
ed to find out how many people
would be interested in such a bu-
rial arrangement. Clerk Alden
Farris reported to the Board
.,A,jTuesday, night the reaction from,
the poll was "extremely favora-
ble". "We have had 24 people to
already commit themselves to
buying one of the crypts if and
when they are built," Farris said.
The commitments were in ad-
dition to the favorable interest ex-
pressed.
At this early stage in develop-
ment, no rates have been set for
the spaces inside the structure,
but estimates are they will range
from $1,200 to $1,600.
The mausoleum will be built
at Holly Hill Cemetery just inside
and to one side of the main gate.
Mayor Frank Pate observed, 'We
have a lot of unused space on
both sides of the main gate and
we could build a mausoleum on
both sides if the demand is


The Mack tractor shown in the photo above hangs out its trailer. The driver escaped by climbing down to the
into space, held up by the mechanism which attaches it to wooden piling directly under the truck.


......Dramatic Accdeint,htu Noody Is Hurt


Paul Timothy Lord, 26, of Sycamore, Georgia, is a very
lucky young man, and he knows it!
Monday afternoon, Lord was tooling along north on High-
way 71, when he rounded the curve near the Intracoastal Wa-
terwayat White City and noticed the drawbridge was standing
open.
Lord casually started to apply his brakes in plenty of time
to stop behind the three cars which were already stopped at the
bridge, waiting for it to be closed once again. But Lord received

The accident closed the bridge to vehicle traffic the
remainder of the afternoon and all night Monday. Re-
pair crews re-opened one lane of traffic about noon
Tuesday. According to Sheriff Al Harrison, traffic will
experience intermittent delays over the next few days,
as repairs are made. Sheriff Harrison said there are no
plans to close the bridge entirely to make repairs.


the start of his life when he'hii the brake pedal and nothing
happened. If anything, the heavy tractor-trailer rig, loaded with
fertilizer headed for the Wewahitchka area to transfer to heli-
copters being used in tree planting operations, just seemed to
get faster.
Certainly, the open drawbridge seemed to be speeding to-
ward the truck, as the brakes failed to stop its forward
progress.
According to Sheriffs Deputy Bobby Shiver, Lord then guid-
ed his huge rig to the left of the road, to avoid hitting the cars
parked at the open bridge. The truck struck a line of concrete
posts serving as a guard rail beside the road bed and mowed
them fiat.
Still, the truck didn't stop.
He then hit the concrete bannister on the bridge's approach
, and tore it down, but the truck was still moving forward.
The truck then had nothing but open span before it and
Lord was getting worried. The Mack tractor then struck one of

there."
The City attempted to develop
a perpetual care cemetery on part
of their property on Niles Road,
but delays and a need for devel-
oping a portion of the property in
conventional burial spaces has
delayed that project some.
FIRE BUREAU ORDINANCE
The first reading was aired
Tuesday on a new ordinance
creating a fire prevention depart-
ment in the City's building de-
partment. The new department is
required by the State of Florida to
control fire resistant practices in
construction and operation of
public buildings.
The new -ordinance addresses
such items as adopting the Fire
Prevention Code, policing regula-
tions of the State Fire Marshal,
authorizing periodic, inspections
of processes, buildings and other
- structures; establishing require-
ments and procedures for investi-
gation of fires, fire drills in
schools, requirements for keeping
doors locked, false, alarms, fires
in streets, etc.
Al Ray, the City's purchasing
agent, has already been trained
by the State of Florida to admin-
ister the requirements of the ordi-
nance.
POLICE REPORT
Police Chief Carl Richter filed
his monthly report Tuesday
night, showing his department
was involved in 43 criminal cases
during the month.
The report showed there were
28 arrests made as a result of the
reported cases.
The Department received 328
calls during the month, for all
purposes, from reporting crime to
asking for information or secur-
ing aid.
The Department investigated
three criminal traffic accidents
during the month, Investigated
21 infractions of traffic regula-
tions and issued 17 traffic warn-
ings.

Truck Leaves Wednesday with Relief Supplies for "Hugo" Victims


The people in and around Port St.
Joe remember their plight following
Hurricane Kate, back in 1985. That
they remembered well was exhibited by
the outpouring of response to a call for
aid to the people of the Charleston,
South Carolina area just over a week
ago.


A tractor, pulling a semi loaded al-
most to the full mark pulled out of Port
St. Joe Wednesday morning, headed
for Sumter, South Carolina, loaded
with food, water, baby needs, pet food
and things people remembered need-
ing themselves a few years back.
The trailer, which was parked be-


side the Fire Station here in Port St.
Joe was opened for loading Wednesday
afternoon of last week and there has
been a steady stream of contributions
and volunteer workers busily getting
the truck loaded and ready for the trip
ever since.
City Auditor and Clerk, Alden Far-


ris, who has kept a close eye on the
collection proceedings, said Tuesday
afternoon that the truck was well over
three quarters full and items were still
coming in. "It'll be full or nearly full
when it pulls out of here in the morn-
ing," Farris said.

We hope we don't have many more years of "no new taxes"
in our county, state and nation. After the experience we have
had for the past year or so, and the trauma we just went
through with our local governments, we can't stand many more
years of "no new taxes."
Give us a year of "moderate raises," or "the ox is in the
ditch" thinking at anytime. Moderate tax raises or telling the
truth about real needs, we can understand. But those hidden
"no new taxes" are going to drive us all to the poor house.
One thing about going to the poor house, with the "no new
taxes" we have experienced in the past few months we should
have smooth roads to ride there on, safe bridges to cross, air
conditioning in the house and steak on the table at the poor
house. If we don't, we ought all to revolt and tell our law mak-
ers we didn't get what our taxes were not raised for.
The main thing which bothers us about additional taxes is
that there first is no attempt made to actually reduce the need
for expenditures somewhere, or. a realistic study made to see if
we need and if we can reasonably afford whatever it is we're
buying with these "no new taxes."
Is there waste going on in our government, at whatever lev-
el? If our governing officials, and we think all are reasonable
men, if not overly familiar with economics, would not go into
hock at home to purchase something he didn't have the money
to buy, he shouldn't expect our nation to do likewise.
Just one point of conservatism will be made here.
Last week, our office received eight pieces of mail, on the
same day, from the same Florida Senator, all sent in separate
envelopes and all containing identical material. We got one
piece of mail addressed to the "Managing editor," one to the
"Political reporter," one to "Photo editor", another to "Editorial
page editor", "Columnist", "Assignment editor," "Editor," and
"Publisher". If the political editor, the editorial page editor, the
columnist, the editor, etc, of this wonderful newspaper was do-
ing his job, he'd name that Senator, Connie Mack, and insist
that he police his mail list a little more closely.
One letter addressed to "The Star" would have been suffi-
cient.


A Good Excuse

Remember a few weeks ago, when we were conjecturing way
down the road about the overseas drug cartel declaring war on
Columbia? We were wondering just how we would feel if this
same cartel were to threaten President George Bush, telling
him to back off if he wanted to live a while longer?
Well, it's happened. It hasn't happened with President
George Bush, but it has happened with Governor Bob Marti-
nez. It matters not whether you are a supporter or a detractor
of Governor Bob Martinez, it is still going just a bit far for the
foreign drug cartel or anyone else to threaten the governor of
our state.
It was in the papers just last week. Law enforcement au-
thoritaes,in the State of Florida were investigating death threats
madeby drug lords against Martinez, ibf hig position concern-
ing the drug traffic and his handling, in general, of the situa-
tion in Florida.
Yotr see, our state is one of the main conduits for drugs into
this nation of ours, and Florida authorities are bending their
back to do everything possible to discourage shipping drugs
through our state.
Too, many of the drug lords live in the Miami area and the
state law enforcement community is making things uncomfort-
able for them there.
So comes the threat.
That's neither here nor there. The thing is that the United
States of America cannot afford to have its chief executives on a
state or national level threatened by gangsters who are existing
and getting rich on the misery of others.
If there are going to be any threats made, declarations
made, resolutions drawn up, pressure applied or minds
changed, it should be the community of reason and decency
doing it to the drug lords, rather than the other way around.
If these threats continue, or they spread to other targets,
such as our President, we would think this nation perfectly jus-
tified in doing whatever it thought necessary to put the ones is-
suing the threats out of business.
This drug thing has gone too far already. We understand
that words won't stop it, but we think we're allowed some ex-
cuse for drastic actions now.


\Hunker Down with Kes I


Separated

"How far do you reckon that
old road goes?" Bobby was
squinting into the sun, staring off
down State Road 22.
"I don't know," Buddy re-
sponded after the appropriate
amount of silence, "but there's
one thing sure for certain, it's go-
ing to carry us out of this one
horse town just as soon as we're
old enough."
Another round of silence.
"My Dad said it will get you
all the way to St. Louis or even
Chicago." Ricky said it like he
hadn't decided if it were true or
not.
"Chicagol That's just barely in
the United States. I'm going the
other way. Memphis or Tupelo
maybe."


... But Not Apart


"Naw, Miami Beach is the
place just lie in the sun all
day."
"Miami Beach? What are you
going to do for money?"
"Listen, with all the digging
for potatoes I've been doing in
that back field, I know sooner or
later I've got to strike oil."
More silence.
We were engaged in one of
our favorite pastimes. We'd
walked the two miles over to the
railroad tracks and carefully laid
a couple of pennies on each rail.
While we waited for the 3 o'clock
train out of Nashville to come
along and flatten our coins, we'd
climbed up on the overpass to
watch the out of town cars come
by.


What year you ask? Gosh, it
could have been any summer be-
tween 1956 and 1963 or so. You
know, there was something al-
most mystical about peering
down that highway .... The con-
versation always turned to where
we were going and what we were
going to become. Of course, in
our early visits in those first sum-
mers we made a pact that we
were going to stick together forev-
er. We'd all join the circus togeth-
er, or maybe we'd go out to Holly-
wood and make us some western
pictures with Roy and Gene and
Lash and Rocky. And if last Sat-
urday's feature had been a Tar-
zan movie, why naturally, we'd be
making plans for Africa. Got to
keep those ivory hunters away

from the elephants. And in the
process we'd pull that beautiful
girl who was always on safari out
of the quicksand. It never once
entered our minds just how that
girl always managed to be 19
hundred thousand miles from
home and always up to her neck
in quicksand.
It was such a big world and
we'd seen none of it. Well, Bobby
had been to Memphis once, came
back and told us they had build-
ings taller than trees. We all kin-
da' kept an eye on him after that.
But today's trip to the overpass
was in the latter summers. I was
just a year away from my driver's
license. We had turned to more
serious discussions of the possi-
bilities that road held for us.
"My Dad says they're building
super highways now. No red
lights, you can only get on and off
at certain places and they're all
four lanes. They don't even go
through the little towns and you
can drive 75 miles per hour."
"I don't believe that?"
'Why would anybody want to
build a road that didn't go
through town?"
Silence. .
'Well," you could see Buddy's
wheels a'turning, "I hope they get
one close by before we graduate
'cause that's the way I want to
leave 75 miles an hour with no
stops."
"I wish that we could all stay
together." Ricky even said it like
he knew it wasn't possible.
"Keco owns the mill and
they're not going to sell to us."
"Maybe we could buy a big
farm together."
We all, as on cue, threw a dirt
clod off the overpass. Farming
was one of the main reasons we
were looking down State Road 22.
We talked of being doctors,
lawyers or big league baseball
players. We thought of business-
es we could start up. Was there
something we could invent?
"One thing is for sure fellows,
no matter where we go, or what
we do, we can keep in touch."
"Let's do that."
"We could meet back here
once a year."
Silence.
'Yes, no matter what's ahead,
It can't be complicated enough to
keep us apart."
The silence was broken by the
shrill whistle of the west bound
out of Nashville.
"It's running a little late to-
day." "Bobby hadn't even looked
down at his watch.

Ricky now works for the Agri-
cultural Department of North
Carolina. I haven't seen him in 20
years. Bobby is a dentist in East
Tennessee. I've seen him one
time, maybe twice, since we left.

ETAOIN SHRDLU By: Wesley R. Ramsey I



The Will Is Still There But the Flesh Is Getting Weak


I


WHY IS IT THAT it isn't so
imperative a matter in my life
anymore that I travel 120 or so
miles on a Friday night, to watch
a high school football game?
I still do it, you understand,
but more and more I find myself
hunting reasons why I should
stay at home, rather than hit the
road and face the prospect of get-
ting home after midnight and
feeling like a discarded glove the
day after.
I figured, last year, that I was
just tired, or overworked, or
something. We didn't have all
that .many travel games to far
places last year, but there were
enough to give me some con-
cerned moments in my life. Luck-
ily, on the far away games, some
legitimate reason always came up
to keep me from going. Either I


had somewhere else I had to go.
or I was ailing or some such ex-
cusable absence.
They even excuse you from
church for the reasons I missed
the far away travel games last
year.

RECENTLY, I had the same
old problem staring, me in the
face. Was there a legitimate rea-
son I could get out of going all the
way to Perry to the football game?

Better still, was there a legit-
imate reason I could use to keep
from having to take that long ride
home way after my usual bed-
time.
Perry is a long way to go to
play a football game and an even
further way to come home after-
ward.
But, I went, on the Willie
Ramsey bus and left the driving


to him.
Nevertheless, it wasn't the
most pleasant trip home I have
ever experienced. I have this
problem, see. I know that if I am
driving at that time of the night, I
have problems keeping alert and
wide awake. I am prone to konk
out and think my steering wheel
is a feather pillow.
My problem is that I think
everyone else has my problem. I
could sleep while riding home,
but I can't really get into this
sleeping thing for anticipating
that Willie would begin to think
of his steering wheel as a feather
pillow.
IT WASN'T TOO many years
ago a bunch of us would eagerly
await those out-of-town games,
pile up a car load and strike out
to the game.
And, of course, after the
game, we had to look up some-


place to go eat supper.
That's a late hour to go hunt-
ing supper especially facing
up to a two hour drive back
home. But, looking for something
to eat after the game was one of
the attractions of the out-of-town
football games. It was an adven-
ture and we usually had a ball
with a bunch of buddies or
friends at these late night soirees.
We have seen bears cross the
highways between West Bay and
DeFuniak Springs, experienced
the lights going out during a
game while the Sharks were
ahead in Quincy, saw a fan take
out after a Port St. Joe player
who had just made a first down,
with folding chair, seen numer-
ous deer cross the road in Liber-
ty, Taylor, Calhoun, Walton and
Washington counties, dodged
cow chips at Bonifay, eaten pea-
nuts at Marianna, frozen at Flori-
da High, got wet at Chocta-


whatchee. eaten chicken by the
buckets full to and from games. .
. You name it, and we have done
it going or coming from high
school football games.
And, we had a ball dogig it!
One night, my brother Will,
and I took off after a Shark foot-
ball game to Sewanee, Tennessee,
to watch his brother-in-law, Wal-
ter Wilder-our own intrepid Su-
perintendent of Schools-play In
the homecoming game of Sewan-
ee University the next afternoon.
I'll never do that againI
TODAY, AN OUT-OF-TOWN
trip to a football game means we
get started early enough to stop
and eat supper on the way to the
game. After the game, it's a race
to the car and get on the road
back home before it gets too late.
I'll probably keep going to
those out-of-town games, even
though good sense tells me I


would be better off to stay at
home.
I have always attended them,
even though I have never had
anyone playing on the team, ex-
cept for two years in which num-
ber one son. Ray, played football.
Now, however, in these years
in which I am beginning to think
about hanging it up, grandsons
come along and go to playing
football. For at least the next four
years, I'll probably have a vested
interest in the at home and the
out-of-town games.
So, it's take a long deep
breath, find some other time to
sleep and follow the team. It's the
American thing to do.
My biggest problem is going
to be writing the stories about
the games. If you don't think it's
hard, when you have a grandson
playing, to remain entirely un-
biased, you ought to try it some-
time!

If Golf Ain't Exercise,

What Is?

Many people, some of them noted experts on physical condition-
ing, have said that golf is not a game to play for exercise. Most of the
people who have made such remarks, I'll bet, have never played a
round of golf.
Just last Saturday I played golf with some friends and I was just
as tired when we finished as if I had been cutting logs all day with a
cross-cut saw. If you have never cut logs with a cross-cut saw, work
is just a four-letter word to you.
On my way to the golf course, I was thinking about what some
of those "experts" had said and I decided, just for the record, to keep
some statistics on the physical aspects of my golf play that day. Be-
low, are some of the physical aspects of my round of golf played -
with live witnesses last Saturday.
I carried my bag approximately 20 yards, from my truck to the
golf cart and back to the truck when we finished. Half that distance
back to the truck I dragged my golf bag because I was too tired to
pick it up by the time we finished.
My bag weighs about 100 pounds because it's a big bag and
there are eight woods and 17 irons in it, plus an assortment of
balls, gloves, tees and such. No one has said anything about me car-
rying more clubs than regulations allow because I always lose and
they don't want to make me mad.
-It took about five minutes for me to recover my normal breath-
ing after loading and unloading my clubs.
During the course of the day, I swung various clubs 867 times.
Of the 867 swings, 642 were practice swings, 104 of them were me
throwing my clubs in frustration and 121 were actual golf shots I
took during the match.
I posted a score of 92 which is considerably less than my actual
score of 121, but I can explain the difference; I cheated! It was justi-
fiable cheating, though, because I still lost the match. A score of 92
looks somewhat better than a score of 121.
During the day, I got into and out of my cart 178 times. This
takes considerable physical energy because it's like sitting down
and getting up each time I did It. Of the 178 times I got in and out,
121 of them were to hit my ball and the other 57 were to go to the
bathroom, hunt balls (mostly mine) or to push the golf cart.
There's no way to really know, but I estimate a walking distance
of six to eight miles. That may seem like a long distance considering
we were riding in golf carts, but you must consider the fact that I
had only two balls and I hit one into the lake on #2. That left me
with only one ball and each time I lost it, I had to look until I found
it.
By the way, about one mile of the above distance was logged
running. I almost stepped on a snake in the rough on #5 while look-
ing- for my lost ball and I was almost back to the clubhouse before
they caught me.
Considering all of the above, I think you will agree that golf is a
very physical game. I didn't allow for the breath I expelled when
cussing after I hit a bad shot, which was often, as my score indi-
cates.
Nor did I include the swimming and diving I did during the day.
I lost three clubs and a putter in the lakes on #2 and #6.
For those of you who still think golf isn't a physical game, I in-
vite you to join us for a day of golf. We plan on playing the back
nine holes of the round we started last Saturday one day this week.
:just as soon as I'm rested enough to play again.
Then, I think I'll quit golf and start something a little less stren-
uous, like football or kick-boxing!



Forecasting the Weather

Is Changing, According,

to Weather Bureau Chief


There are no plans being
made at this time to close the Ap-
alachicola Weather 'Station, ac-
cording to head meteorologist Da-
vid Huff. Speaking before the Port
St. Joe Kiwanis Club Tuesday,
Huff said there are some changes
going on in weather station meth-
odology which will change the
thrust of the Apalachicola sta-
tion, but there are no immediate
plans being, made to close the fa-
cility entirely.
"The advent of new, sophisti-
cated radar equipment has now
made it possible to see into
clouds and to predict the forma-
tion of a tornado up to 20 or 30
minutes before it touches down.
Now, we can't predict tornadoes.
We, only report them after they
happen. These new innovations
in weather forecasting will
change the way we do things and
Apalachicola will no longer have
the function it has now," Huff
said.
At present there are over 300
weather stations around the na-
tion gathering weather informa-
tion, which feeds into a central
computer in Washington, D.C., to
predict weather conditions. Apa-
lachicola is one of these informa-
tion gathering stations. Develop-
meft of new equipment will re-

guessed, he's still there, teaching
school and coaching.
Last time I was there I spent
a couple of hours up at the over-
pass staring down old 22, this
time reflecting on the answers to
a lot of our questions. As I was
leaving I spotted a flattened out
penny in a familiar spot beside
'those tracks. I turned it over,
rubbed off the dirt and held that
semi-mashed coin up close to see

points which will close some in-
stallations over the nation.
"One of the tools used to pre-
dict the weather is sight evalua-
tion and we'll still be doing this at
Apalachicola and furnishing local
services," the speaker said.
The speaker said the Apa-
lachicola office furnishes much of
the media weather information
and will continue to do so. "Every
weather forecaster receives the
same information," Huff said.
Guests of the club were Key
Clubbers Chris Roberson, Cris

Joe was also a guest.


Red Wolves Being Introduced to St. Vincent


If all goes well Franklin
County and Gulf County resi-
dents may soon be able to hear
wolf calls from St. Vincent Na-
tional Wildlife Refuge. The U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service and the
Florida Game and Fresh Water
Fish Commission announced that
a proposal to bring red wolves
temporarily to the island would
be presented to the public in a lo-
cal meeting on October 19. The
red wolf is one of the most criti-
cally endangered mammals in
North America, with only 118 of
the species still in existence, most
of them in captivity. Red wolves
once inhabited the entire South-
eastern United States, including
Florida.
"St. Vincent is needed as a
site for captive wolves to learn to
live in the wild," Franklin County
Commissioners were told at their
monthly meeting on October 3.
Warren Parker, Red Wolf Coordi-
nator for the Fish and Wildlife
Service, went on to explain. 'We
are proposing to bring a captive-
bomrn pair of the wolves to St. Vin-
cent and hold them in a fenced
enclosure while they adjust to be-
ing on the island. After about six
months the gate to the enclosure
will be opened so they can leave
the structure. Each animal will
be equipped with a radio collar so
that its movements can be care-
fully monitored with telemetry
equipment. We hope that they
will raise wild-born young which
can then be stocked in other suit-
able habitat. If all goes as
planned, a pair of adult wolves
will be brought to St. Vincent Ref-
uge in January."
The public meeting will be
held in Apalachicola, at the Na-
tional Estaurine Research Re-
serve Headquarters on Thursday,
October 19, at 7:30 p.m. The Ser-
vice will explain its proposal and
answer questions. The Florida
Game and Fresh Water Fish Com-
mission is cooperating in the pro-
ject and will participate in the
meeting.
The St. Vincent wolf proposal
will be a five-year project de-
signed primarily to produce wild-
acclimated young for transfer and
release elsewhere. Five years fol-
lowing release of the animals, the
Service and the Commission will
decide whether to extend the pro-
ject. Similar projects have been
started at several other locations
including Bulls Island on Cape
Romain National Wildlife Refuge,
South Carolina and Horn Island,
on Gulf Islands National Sea-
shore, Mispissippi. These projects
have demonstrated that wolves:
will adapt readily to island
homes; they are extremely easy to
capture should the need arise;
traditional deer hunting is not af-,
fected (red wolves prey primarily
on small mammals); and wolves
are harmless to humans.
The red wolf was persecuted
by man as early as the colonial
days, and habitat loss and land
use changes have brought it to
the brink of extinction. The En-
dangered Species Act of 1973
gave authorization and funding
for special management efforts to
help species such as the red wolf.
A captive breeding project was in-
itiated .in Washington State to
save breeding: stock.
A major red wolf reintroduc-
tion project Is underway on lands
of the Service's Alligator River Na-
tional Wildlife Refuge in Dare
County, North Carolina. To help
this reintroduction effort, and to
make use of a captive breeding
program, a unique method was
developed using small islands,
such as St. Vincent, to teach red
wolves how to live in the wild.

Third and Fifth Grades
Survive SSAT Test!
On Tuesday and Wednesday,
the third and fifth grades took the
SSAT that the entire state of Flor-
ida takes at this time. Testing
was made a bit nicer by the free
T-shirts that were donated to the
students by the school. In keep-
ing with "hot" movies, the theme
this year for the test was SAT-
MAN you know, like BATMAN.
The SAT coming from the acro-

Star Student of the Week -
Ricky Collins
Ricky Collins, who is the son
of Ricky and Carolyn Collins, is a
kindergarten student in Mrs. Sue
McDaniel's classroom. Ricky's fa-
vorite subject is P.E. and he real-
ly enjoys Mr. Baxley's games.
SRicky would love to meet BAT-
MAN because "he climbs". One
day soon Ricky would like to go to
Disney World in Orlando. His fa-
vorite sport is baseball. When he
grows up, he would like to be a
mechanic.
Ricky is 5 years old. Ricky ad-
mires his mother very much. He
likes to read and the last book
that he read was Brown Bear,
Brown Bear, What Do You See?
Ricky's sweet little smile is ever
present with him. He always

Staff Person of the Week -
Ada Keith Dozier
Mrs. Ada Keith Dozier, who is
the Head Custodian at WES, was
born and reared in Wewahitchka.
She is a member of the St. James
AME Church. Mrs. Dozier has 11
children of whom she is very
proud. Her children live in vari-
ous places (Kentucky, Illinois, In-
diana, and Florida), but they are
never too busy to miss family get
together, or to send their mother
an airline ticket to visit them.
Mrs. Dozier also has 23 grand-
children.
Mrs. Dozier has been Head
Custodian for three years and be-
fore that she worked at WHS
since 1976. During the years
from 1965 to 1976, she worked at
Mr. and Mrs. George Cox's house.
If ever Mrs. Dozier could trav-
el anywhere she wanted to, she
would go to Hawaii. With temper-
atures never over 77 degrees,
winter or summer, I think I'd like
that too. A person Mrs. Dozier ad-
mires is Oprah Winfrey.
I asked Mrs. Dozier how she
did such a good job raising so
many children and this is what
she told me. "I've been a christian
most of my life so God can help
me. Each child is different and
you have to treat them differently.
Talk to them regularly and teach
them to be honest. Be truthful to
them." This is pretty sound phi-
losophy.
Mrs. Dozier enjoys working

starting round of play in the 16th
annual George G. Tapper Golf
Tournament, to be played at the
St. Josephs Bay Country Club

one of the committee heading up
the tournament arrangements
this year, all the tournament
slots-240 of them-are full for
the three day activity which is to
climax Sunday afternoon, when

three places in every flight."
Another highlight of the tour-
nament is the annual lawn party
for all participants, sponsors and
guests Friday evening at the Tap-

lawn party is always one of the
social highlights of the year in
Gulf County, and attracts sup-
porters of the tournament from
all directions.
TOURNAMENT BENEFITS
The tournament has benefit-


ted the Gulf Coast Community
College Foundation, which pro-
vides funding for deserving stu-
dents who need financial aid to
attend the Panama City college,
for the past three years.
During the these years, the
tournament has raised some
$50,000 for the Foundation, all of
which is used to fund scholar-
ships for, students throughout
the West Florida area.
The late George G. Tapper,
founder of the annual golf tour-
nament, was a long-time chair-
man of the Board of Directors at


the school and his widow, Amelia
G. Tapper, is presently a member
of the college Board of Directors.
The tournament play will be
in progress Friday, Saturday and
Sunday. John Grant, of Pensaco-
la, was last year's championship
flight winner.
U.S. Congressman Bill Nelson
will be a special guest at the Fri-
day evening lawn reception. Nel-
son is a candidate for Governor of
the state of Florida in next year's
elections.


Gators Make Pirates Walk the Plank

Rough Up Sneads with a 34-0 Shut Out for District 2-A Win


Wewahitchka's Gators lured
*) the Sneads Pirates into Gator
stadium last Friday night, and
unceremoniously made the Pi-
rates walk the plank, drubbing
them 34-0 in a District 2-A game.
Shannon Miller primed the
Gator scoring pump in the first
period, teaming up with Gerald
Nobles for a 47 yard scoring pass
combination which brought the
Gator faithful to its feet.
Jose Cheka, the side-winding
place kicker who has split the
uprights regularly for the Gators
this season, came on for the first
of four extra point kicks of the
evening. .Jose missed his first
point after of the season late in
the second quarter, attempting
his third straight point of the eve-
ning.
The Gators really turned on
the steam in the second quarter.
Wilbert Wright padded the Gator
lead with a one yard plunge to
score and Nobles snagged his
second TD pass from Miller for a
22 yard scoring strike, the Gators
had a 20-0 lead at half time, on
their way to a shut-out of the Pi-
rates.
Marcus Vann, the Gators'
leading ground gainer of the eve-
ning, with 127 yards on. eight
carries, ripped up the middle in
the third period to put another
score on the board, and Mark
Jones closed out the scoring
train in the flna"-period on a fourd
yard plunge through the line.
The Gators had Vann leading
their potent ground game of the
evening, with his 127 yards. Wil-
bert Wright added 62 in 10 car-

Defeat Rutherford Rams 27-12



Sharks Take Fourth


Victory


Terry Quinn outdistances a Ram defender as he races for the
Sharks'first touchdown.


Port St. Joe's Sharks got off
to a slow start last Friday night
in Tommy Oliver Stadium, but
came roaring back in the second
half to de-horn the Rutherford
Rams, 27-12.
The sluggish Sharks found
themselves in an unaccustomed
position in the first half. When
the rest whistle blew, they were
behind in the score. That hasn't
happened all year long and a
murmur of unbelief rippled
through the considerable number
of Port St. Joe fans who almost
filled the visitor's side of huge
Tommy Oliver.
The Sharks zipped to an early
lead in the first period, when the
Rams fumbled on their first play
from scrimmage and Darrell Tull
fell on the loose ball.
Three plays later, after the
Sharks were unable to move the
first two, Terry Quinn took off
around left end and scampered
for 17 yards and the game's first
TD. The Sharks tried for two ex-
tra points, rather than their auto-
matic kick from Bobby Williams
and the attempt failed, leaving
the Sharks with a 6-0 lead.
That was all the points the
home team was to score in the
first half.
Late in the quarter, the
Sharks were on the Ram 33 and
driving, but the only lost fumble
of the game cost the Sharks the
ball when Jeremy Brown recov-
ered for the Rams.
Early in the second quarter,
the Rams put the big rush on
punter Bobby Williams and
knocked down his kick on the
Shark 10 yard line. It took all
four downs, but the Rams
pushed it in with quarterback
Darrin Sackreiter sneaking over
from the one. The extra point
failed and the score was tied with
7:39 left in the first half.
Six minutes later, the Rams
took their only lead of the game


The Shark defense puts pressure on Rutherford's punter Friday evening. Bruce Dawson (26) and
Roy Campbell (68) attempt to block the punt.


after holding the Sharks on
downs at the Shark 39. Sackreit-
er put the Rams within smelling
distance of the goal with a pass
to Jason Griffin which was good
for a gain to the Shark four. Two
plays later, Marcus Bolware
lunged over from the one to give
the Rams a.12-6 half-time lead.
SHARKS BITE!
Whatever coach Phil Lanford
told the Sharks at half time,
worked! The team roared out
looking like the Sharks of the
past three weeks and methodi-
cally set to work moving the ball
down the field. Ball control was
the method of play, as the team
used up nearly five minutes to
move the length of the field, with
Bill Ramsey passing to Ken Mon-
ette and Eric Langston, eating up
big gobs of yards.
Ramsey sent Monette into the
left comer of the end zone and
zipped a pass to him to take the
lead for good. Bobby Williams
kicked and the score was 13-12.
It didn't stay. that way long.
On their first play after the kick-
off, the Rams fumbled away the
ball to Ernest Gant, who recov-
ered the fumble on the Ram 32.
Ramsey hit Monette at the five
yard line and on the very next


play, Willie Smith rambled in for
the TD. Again it was Bobby Wil-
liams kick for the extra point and
the Sharks were ahead 20-12.
The Sharks put their final TD
across the goal line with 3:42 left
in. the game.
Starting on their own 37, the
Sharks had a 14 yard pass to
Eric Langston, four and six yard
runs by Russell Cherry and a five
yard spurt by Willie Smith. Then,
with 12 yards left to the goal line,
Terry Quinn carried it over.

Smith, 19 tackles, 1 interception;

The shipment of aid supplies is headed for
Sumter, South Carolina, where it will be
turned over to local Civil Defense officials for
distribution in small communities surround-
ing Charleston.
"One small community aiding other small
communities," Farris said.
Contributing the aid items has been a
community effort. Civic clubs, organizations,
churches, and private individuals have all
worked on the project with no leadership ex-
cept the leadership one receives from trying to
provide help for someone who needs help.
Farris said so many people helped box,
pack, load and collect the supplies which were
shipped out, it would be impossible to name


from Page 1)


everyone who joined in.
He said most of the help came from Joe
Badger, a former city employee, who stayed by
the truck all the time it was open for receiving
contributions to make sure the supplies were
safeguarded. Jerry Stokoe spent the week per-
sonally contacting organizations and people
he knew would help if they were told of the
project. Billy Stephens, who has relatives in
the Hurricane Hugo area helped with much of
the loading as did crews from the Gulf County
Forestry Camp.
"There was a lot of effort and help went
into the program," Farris said. "Port St. Joe
people can be proud of their response to this
need."

Seized Guns

Will Be Put

On Sale
Firearms seized from convict-
ed wildlife law violators will go on
the auction block Saturday, Octo-
ber 14. The auction will take
place at the Leon County Civic
Center in Tallahassee.
Each year the Game and
Fresh Water Fish Commission
sells firearms confiscated by wild-
life officers during the previous
12 months.
"This year we'll have more'
than 100 rifles, shotguns and pis-
tols up for bids," said Helen Hig-
gins, the Commission's property
administrator.
Ms. Higgins said interested
buyers may inspect the firearms
and register to bid beginning at
noon Saturday, October 14. The
public auction will begin at 7:30.
"All items will be sold 'as is,'"
she said. '"We cannot guarantee
they are in proper working condi-
tion. Anyone planning to buy a
firearm should come prepared to
pay for it and take it home at that
time."
Successful bidders may pay
with cash or in-state check, Ms.
Higgins said.
Money received from the auc-
tion goes into the Commission's
operating budget. Last year's sale
netted approximately $15,000,
Ms. Higgins said.
First Coast Auction and Real-
ty of Jacksonville will conduct the
auction.

age liability insurance. "'Under
this new rule, consumers cannot
be denied coverage or surcharged
because they did not have proper-
ty damage liability coverage in the
past," he said. "First-time insu-
rance buyers should have ade-
quate time to purchase proper in-
'surance," he said.
Since 1972, drivers have been
required to carry a minimum of
$a 0,000 of "no-fault" or personal
injury protection (PIP) insurance,
vpich helps: pay for injuries re-
gardless of who caused an acci-
Sdent. Starting in October, the law
will require drivers to carry
$10,000 ofproperty damage lia-
bility coverage as well.
According to Gallagher, all
new and existing insurance poli-
cies written or renewed after Oc-
:tober 1 .must include property
damage liability.
Those who break the law can
automatically lose their driving
privileges 'and must pay heavy
fines, Gallagher said. To get a li-
cense reinstated a driver will have
to pay $150 If it is a first offense,
$250 if it is a second offense, and
$500 if it is a third offense, he
said. The state will not issue a
driver's license or auto registra-
tion tag without proof of proper
'insurance, Gallagher said.
Gallagher said the new man-
datory insurance will help keep
collision insurance costs down, a
"benefit for motorists who carry
collision coverage. Collision insu-
rance, which is optional, helps
; pay for damage to a motorist's
*care regardless of who causes the
accident.
To help consumers find prop-
er insurance, Gallagher said the
Department of Insurance has de-
veloped an Auto Insurance Shop-
pers' Guide. Included are shop-
ping tips and suggestions on how
to save on premium payments.


The guide is available in both
English and Spanish through the

St. Joe Forest Products

Settles With DER Penalty

St. Joe Forest itoducts kraft paper plant has agreed to pay
the Florida Department of Environmental Regulation $18,450
and reimburse Department expenses of $319 for alleged viola-
tions of air pollution standards.
The company, located in Gulf County at Port St. Joe, is in
the process of a major construction program to reduce odors
from its mill and meet the Department's Total Reduced Sulfur
(TRS) Rule.
The company operates two recovery boilers under Depart-
ment permits. The boilers emit amounts of total reduced sulfur
that do not meet compliance standards. The Department has is-
sued construction permits for the necessary improvements to
comply with the TRS rule.
The permit issued by the Department required the company
to install continuous emission monitors for TRS in the stack of
each boiler and to submit quarterly reports of readings from
the monitors.
On November 1, 1988 the Department received monitoring
reports from the company that indicated the boilers exceeded
emissions standards. The Department found that the company's
reported operating record was in violation of Department rules.
The company was issued a Warning Notice November 30, 1988
for not submitting test results of the boiler emissions. The com-
pany also submitted test results 45 days after the test was con-
ducted.
In addition to paying the cash settlement, the company
must notify the Department within 24 hours of each six hour pe-
riod when the TRS emissions, as indicated by the continuous
emissions monitors, exceed the final Standard.
A copy of the consent order is available for public review at
the Northwest District office, 160 Governmental Center, Pensa.
cola, during normal business hours.

International Credit Union Day


International Credit Union
Day, Thursday, October 19, will
be observed and celebrated
among the world's 80 national
credit union movements.
For more than four decades,
International Credit Union Day
has been a time to recognize and
recall the achievements of move-
ment pioneers, volunteers and
staff and promote the mission of
the world's 35,000 credit unions
serving 71 million member-
owners. "International Credit Un-
ion Day," said Susan Mitchell,
Secretary of the Gulf Coast Area
Credit Union League, "provides
everyone in the movement an op-
portunity to celebrate our past,

present and future."
This year's theme, "Credit Un-
ions: One Voice", represents both
the uniqueness and unity of cred-
it unions. "While a credit union
serves its individual member-
ship," said Ms. Mitchell, "it is also
part of a larger state, national
and worldwide cooperative sys.-
tem. At each level, the individual
member's interests are represent-
ed, as each institution works tod-
wards the same goal."
When the first credit union
day was celebrated 42 years ago.,
fewer than a dozen national
movements took part. Today,
credit unions truly circle the

to Help
Florida Power Corporation
line crews 123 employees -
have been sent to South Carolina
to assist in the massive cleanup
effort following Hurricane Hugo.
The line crews were taken
from throughout Florida Power's
32-county area of service.
The company expects the
crews will be in South Carolina
for at least two weeks. If that is
the case, fresh crews will be sent
to relieve the workers.
"We want to send as much
help as we can to speed the
cleanup," said Florida Power
President Allen J. Keesler, Jr. "I'm
;confident that if the tables were
turned they would be sending,
crews to help us."
The Florida Power crews came
from the following communities -
Jamestown, Apopka, Deland,
Ocala, Clearwater, Tarpon
Springs, Haines City, and north-,
ern Pinellas County.
Last week, Florida Power sent
between 500 and 600 poles to be
diverted to Puerto Rico for clean-
up work there.

BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISaIONERS
MBETING OF AUGUST 15, 1989
The Board of County Commissioners of Gulf
County, Florida met this date in special session
with the following members present- Chairman
Douglas C. Birmingham and Commissioners
James E. Creamer. Jimmy 0. Gortman, Donald B.
Parker, and Nathan Peters, Jr. Others present
were: Deputy Clerk Towan Collier and Admin.
AstaL/Civll Defense Director Larry Wells.
The meeting came to order at 6:00 p.m.,
C.D.T.
Commissioner Gortman opened the meeting
with prayer, and Chairman Birmingham led the
Pledge of Allegiance to the flag.
Chairman Birmingham discussed the high
costs and the problems involved in the garbage
business, and reported that this meeting is to re-
ceive input from the citizens about whether or not
they feel the County should get out of the garbage
business altogether (contract with a private busi-
ness to take it over). The following citizens then
appeared before the Board:
Angle Whitflield inquired if the County can
get out of the garbage business completely? How
would ad valorem taxes be affected If theygot our?
Would the County still operate the landfills? How
would it affect the Cities?
Chairman Birmingham discussed that the
County can get completely out of the laborx por-
tion of the garbage business, but not the "legal" as-
pects of it. Commissioner Gortman stated that ab-
solutely no ad valorem taxes would be used for
garbage, if the County gets out of the business. He
also stated that the County will have 2 Class III
landfills and 2 compators sites which the private
company could lease or buy. Chairman Birmnning-
ham reported that the Cities can participate with
the Board or they can work their own deal, which-
ever they choose to do. The Board also discussed
the cut in the millage rate for the upcoming year,
due to the $200,000 cut by pulling-in the dump-
sters ("Swa-Cars"). Upon inquiry about incinera-
tion, Chairman Birmingham stated that the
County takes the garbage to Bay County because
that is presently the cheapest disposal method.
Commissioner Peters discussed that his preference
is for the County to stay in the garbage business,
and use Special Assessments to pay for it (to get It
out of ad valorem taxes). The Board discussed that
it Is too late to put a Special Assessment into place
this year. Chairman Birmingham reported that the
previous Board looked at the options of (1) a tip-
ping fee, (2) a special assignment, and (3) a Sales
Tax (which the Legislature has refused to allow us
to adopt for garbage collection/disposal. After dis.
cussion, Chairman Birmingham stated that many
people have expressed a desire for the Board to try
again, in this Legislative Session, to use Sales Tax
to pay for garbage.
Commissioner Gortman stated that It will
not be mandatory, people would still have the op-
tion of going to the compactor and paying a tipping
fee. Chairman Birmingham discussed Calhoun
County's mandatory service. Upon inquiry, the
Board stated that the County is not charming a fee
at the compactor sites, but a business would have
to in order to come out Commissioner Gortman
stated that most companies do give senior citizens
a rate cut.
Oscar Redd inquired about the difference
between Class I and Class III garbage?
The Board stated that Class I Is household
garbage, and Class III is trees, limbs, etc. They
also stated that If the County stays in the garbage
business, there will not be a tipping fee at the
compactor sites at this time.
Grady Booth inquired if county is under re-
cycling mandates, and If so, can they contract with
a private enterprise that will meet these man-
dates?
Chairman Birmingham stated that all Class I
garbage must be reduced by 30% through recy-
cling. He also stated that the Board can contract
with a Company that will abide by and follow the
mandates. Upon inquiry about rates. Chairman
Birmingham reported that the Board has no way
of knowing this until bids are taken, but a con-
tract will be entered with the Company so the
County will have some type of control. Upon in-
qury about mandatory pick-up, the Board stated
that they do not agree with or want a mandatory
system. The Board discussed that the County pays
the Incineration costs for all garbage (even-from
the Cities), and it costs approximately $240,000 at
this time. Commissioner Peters stated that he feels
incinerators will be the disposal system of the fu-
ture, and landfills will be banned. Chairman Birm-
ingham discussed problems they have faced with
garbage in the past few years (high costs, liners,
etc.). After discussion about the difficulty in find-
ing a solution that really works, the Board dis-
cussed problems they are having with littering at
present (and there are dumpsters every 10 mie}s).
The Board also discussed the difference in the ma-
teoials in products buried years ago, and those
that are buried today. Upon inquiry by the Chair- ,
man, some of the citizens stated that they would
prefer for the County to contract with private en-
terprise, but they would be agreeable with a solu-
tion by which everyone pays and it comes out of
ad valorem taxes (Sales Tax, etc.). Commissioner
Peters stated that the Board will attempt to get a
discount for Senior Citizens to keep down to a
minimum the costs per average household, and to
make this a voluntary service. He stated that If a
Company cannot make it with these restrictions
and leaves, the garbage business is back to the
Board. Commissioner Gortman stated that If the
Board will require a bond from the Company to en-
sure that they will have funding if the Company
does quit Chairman Birmingham discussed that
nothing definite will be known about the private
businesses until bids are taken.
There being no further business, the meeting
did then adjourn.

MEETING OF AUGUST 17, 1989
p The Board of County Commissioners of Gulf

with the following members present: Chairman
Douglas C. Birmingham and Commaissioners

The meeting came to order at 7:35 p.m.
Chairman Birmingham reported that the
purpose of this meeting is to receive public input
concerning the possibility of the County getting
completely out of the solid waste business, and
turning It over to private enterprise. After discus-
sion about problems (legal and financial) with gar-
bage, the following comments were received:
John Alexander Who will contract with a
private company? What will people do with their
garbage?
Chairman Birmingham stated that If the
County stays in the business, the individuals
would have to contract with a private company to
haul their garbage, or they may take it to 1 o the
2 compactor sites. Upon further inquiry, Chairman
Birmingham stated that It is not the Board's inten-
tion to go to a mandatory system. Chairman Birm-
ingham stated that even if the County stays in the
business, they are going to franchise haulers so
that every area of the County will be serviced If so


desired by the citizens.
Richard Herring Will the County still haul
garbage to Bay County for incineration if trailers
are pulled in? If County gets out of the garbage
business, will they still haul to Bay County after
the Company collects the solid waste (at the
County's expense)?
Chairman Birmingham reported that if the
Board stays in the business, the trailers will be
pulled-in on October I and there will be a contract
hauler who will provide collection services from
each household to the compactor site (the County
will haul from the compactor to the incinerator at
their expense) or the citizens may bring it to the
compactor sites themselves. He stated that if the
County goes to a totally private, enterprise system,
the haulers would collect the garbage and dispose


of $5,100, to be paid from the State line item ap-
propriation. Commissioner Parker moved that
Board enter into a contract with BDE to develop
the Conceptual Plan and Cost Estimate (at a cost
of $5,100) and pay for it from the line Item appro-
priation for Salinas Park. Commissioner Peters
seconded the motion, and It passed unanimously.
Parks commission: John Reeves discussed
a letter from the Department of Natural Respurces
concerning the line item appropriation for Salinas
Park, and requested that Clerk Lister be named as
Fiscal (Liaison) Offcer for this grant. Clerk Lister
agreed for his office to handle the financial aspects
of this granLt.
The meeting recessed for a short break at


of it at their expense (this company would be fran-
chised and bonded by the County).
Wesley Ramsey How did County cut
$200,00 from ad valorem taxes by pulling in the
trailers?
Chairman Birmingham reported that
$200,000 was cut from the proposed budget for
next year, and it was taken from New Employees,
New Equipment, Maintenance of Equipment &
Sites, and Fuel (operations). He stated that this
does not include laying-off any employees. Upon
inquiry about mandatory pickup and about litter-
ing, the Board discussed tat they will make sure
the haulers will service all areas of Gulf County.
and stated that they are against a mandatory sys-
tem. Upon inquiry about having a County-wide
billing system, Chairman Birmingham discussed
that the Board has checked on Sales Tax and Spe-
cial Assessments (on each property owner) as
methods of funding the garbage collection and dis-
posal.
Crawford Jackson If County gets out of the
garbage business altogether, will ad valorem taxes
be reduced?
Chairman Birmingham stated that the taxes
would be reduced by about I mill, and the citizens
would be billed separately for garbage collection/
disposal by the Company.
Ralph Nance discussed the problem that
R become, and stated that there are
very ew citizens here to let the Board know what
they want them to do (and those not here will be
the ones who will complain about the action that
is taken). He also discussed regulations placed on
the County by State Departments (DER, DNR.
etc.).
Chairman Birmingham discussed the chang-
es/regulations that DER has made since the
County first got into the garbage business. After
further discussion about a mandatory system, the
Board discussed that the trailers will be pulled In
(whether the County contracts completely with pri-
vate enterprise or not) because of the expense they
are to the County (maintenance, collection, etc.).
Upon inquiry about recycling. Chairman Birming-
ham reported that the County will begin recycling
on October 1st. at both compactor sites. Wesley
Ramsey inquired about the County starting their
own household collection business, and collecting
from each household to pay the expenses. Chair-
man Birmingham reported that the Board has
some figures for what it would cost the County to
do this, but it has not been active pursued by
the entire Board. They also discussed that it would
be the County's responsibility to enforce payment
Commissioner Gortman stated that he would rath-
er contract with a private company and let them
do everything.
John Reeves discussed that private enter-
prise can do a better Job for profit than what gov-
ernment can do.
Chairman Birmingham stated that a lot of
good Ideas have been expressed, and there are sev-
eral things the Board must look at before a definite
decision Is made. After discussion about the
present disposal system/contract. Chairman Birm-
ingham reported that the Board has had requests
that they remain in the garbage business for at
least I more year, and see If they can get the Legis-
lature to allow the Sales Tax to be used for the dis-
posal of garbage.
There being no further business, the meeting
did then adjourn.

appearance, they're well suited to
Florida conditions. Even though
their multimillion dollar commer-
cial production is limited to Just a
few areas, they are grown by hob-
byists throughout the state.
In Florida, strawberries are
grown as annuals. My informa-
tion on these popular plants was
provided by Extension Vegetable
Specialist Jim Stephens, of the
University of Florida's Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sciences.
In North and Central Florida,
strawberry plants can be set from
October through mid-November,
and in South Florida, until early
December. When winter comes,
the cool nights and short days
will cause the plants to begin
flowering. Flowers formed after
the last killing frost and early
spring will develop into fruit.
Berry production and harvest
continue throughout the spring.
As weather gets warmer and the.
days grow longer, the plants will
stop producing berries and form
runners. These runners will take
root, and become new plants.


Cash Govt.


Checks Within

12 Months

The Department of the Treas-
ury, in carrying out a new Federal
law, will require all Government
checks to be cashed within 12
months of issuance or they will
be cancelled. Presently, there is
no time limit for cashing a U.S.
Government check. Government
checks issued on or after October
1, 1989, will contain a notation,
"VOID AFTER ONE YEAR". This
means that a Government check.
issued on October 1, 1989, will
be good until September 30,
1990, after which it will be can-
celled by the Treasury Depart-
ment.
A Social Security or supple-
ment security income (SSI) check
which is not cashed after one
year of Issuance will be cancelled.
The recipient will then be re-
quired to go to the Social Security
office which authorized the origi-
nal payment to request a second
check. This will mean a delay in
receiving payment. However,
those who have their check de-
.posited directly into a financial
Institution will not be affected by
the new law.
There are also time limits for
claims on Government checks is-
sued after the effective date of the
new law. Any claim on a Social
Security or SSI check must be
presented to a Social Security of-
fice within one year from the date
of Issuance. If there has been a
claim of forgery or unauthorized
endorsement, the Department of
the Treasury will have 18 months
from the date a check is paid by
Treasury to begin funds recovery
action (presently, Treasury has 6
years and 180 days to recover
funds).
More information regarding
the deadline for cashing Govern-
ment checks can be obtained by
contacting any Social Security of-
fice.


that he does not care if the ambulance service bills
the family of the deceased person for the trans-
port, if they will just provide the service so the vic-
tim is not lying at the scene until transport ar-
rives. After further discussion about this problem,
Chairman Birmingham requested that Commis-
stoner Creamer contact the hospital to see if they
will change their policy concerning this matter. At-
torney Rish reported that the new contract with
the hospital has not been signed.
Property Clean-up: Attorney Rish reported
that he is still trying to contact the owner of the
property on Georgia Avenue on St. Joe Beach con-
cerning the hazardous condition of the property.
Property lean-up: Attorney -Rsh reported
that he has contacted the owner of Good Spirits II
(on Highway 98, between Highland View and St.
Joe Beach) and she was very apologetic that she
has not already had the property cleared from
where the building burned. He stated that she will
begin having It cleared as soon as possible.
Chamber of Commerce County Represen-
tative Power Plant: Attorney Rish reported that
the Chamber of Commerce has requested that the
Board designate one of the Commissioners to serve
as their contact person to work with the Chamber

However, most home gardeners
destroy such plants, and start
over again in the fall.
Although strawberries can be
grown in just about any kind of
soil, they don't do as well in peat
or muck. Strawberries like well-
drained soil, which is moist but
not wet. So, sandy soil with plen-
ty of organic matter Is best.
It's important to plant straw-
berry varieties which have proven
themselves under Florida condi-
tions varieties such as Dover
and Florida Belle. They yield large
fruit, and are resistant to a com-
mon plant disease called Anthrac-
nose (an-thrack-nos). Other varie-
ties well adapted to our state are
Florida 90. Ticoga (tic-oh-gah),
and Sequoia (see-kwoy-ah).
For a 10 x 10 foot strawberry
patch, broadcast about two-and-
a-half pounds of 8-8-8 fertilizer
and work it into the soil. Then,
form the beds in the manner I've
described, and apply another
two-and-a-half pounds of fertiliz-
er. This time, place the fertilizer
in a narrow band about six inch-
es deep in the middle of each bed.
Also, during the irst season of
strawberry production, include a
complete mixture of minor ele-
ments in the fertilizer application.
After the beds have been
properly formed, fertilized, and
very well moistened, cover each
with a sheet of one-and-a-half nil
black polyethylene plastic, the
recommended mulch for straw-
berries in Florida. Place soil on
the edges of the plastic to hold it
in place. Then, cut slits In the
plastic where the plants are to be
inserted. The plants should be set
in double rows one on each side
of the raised bed, about six inch-
es from the edges. Space the
plants 12 inches apart in the
rows. Be sure that no plants are
set directly over the fertilizer
band, because this can lead to
salt burn.
Always start with certified,
disease-free plants. Keep them
moist before planting, and plant
them in moist soil. Set them at
the correct depth. Do not cover
the crowns and do not leave tops
of roots exposed. Spread the roots
in a fan shape, and pack soil
firmly around them. With proper
maintenance, and a bit of luck,
next spring you'll be enjoying
fresh strawberries from your own
patch.
