Get Ready for Lawsuit


Attorney Moore Advises County to Prepare for DCA


S








0'


Bleier spent much of the evening signing autographs
for students attending the evening of inspiration.


Moderate Crowd Hears Bleier
Those who expected a huge, burly man, had their pre-
conceived notions dashed last Friday night, and Rocky Bleier and
his supporter, the George G. Tapper Foundation was probably dis-
appointed in the size of the crowd who came to hear Bleter's excel-
lent articulate, explanation of how people allow those pre-
conceived notions get them into trouble and stand in the way of
achievement at times.
BleLer, a former fullback for the Pittsburgh Steelers, winners of
four Super Bowls while he was a member of the team, used him-
self and obstacles which he faced in his life, as examples of how
"ordinary people"' achieve by extraordinary dedication to goals.
Bleler was brought to Port St Joe by the Tapper Foundation to
speak to the Gold Card Club, a group of student achievers.


Attorney Bob Moore warned
the Gulf County Commission
Tuesday night that they should
prepare themselves to "play law-
suit" with the state Department of
Community Affairs about the
middle of April.
Moore advised the Commis-
sion, saying, "We've got an ad-
ministrative hearing scheduled
for April 18 and 19 on our revised
Comprehensive Plan and the DCA
attorneys are advising me that
our revised plan has not been ac-
cepted. Suit against the county is
the next logical move against the
county with non-acceptance of
our plan."
Larry Wells, administrative
assistant in charge of plan prep-
aration, agreed and disagreed
with Moore's assessment of the
situation, when he said, "the peo-
ple I'm dealing with seem to give
the impression that agreement
can be reached by our April 18-
19 deadline, but then I don't deal
with the legal people Mr. Moore is
dealing with, which might be alto-
gether different."
Wells went on to say that he
had sent documents outlining the
county's position on the revised
plan a couple of weeks ago and
'When I was talking with him Just
a couple of days ago, he hadn't
even looked at it." Because of this
situation, Wells thought heeding
Moore's advice might not be a
bad idea, but said, "I think
chances are good that they will
settle with us."
Moore went on to point out,
"I'm at ground zero in this thing.
If we are forced to go to court, we
need to start getting prepared to


v "At some point in time, they're going to stop talk-
ing and start playing lawsuit, and we don't want to
be caught in such a situation unprepared."
-Attorney Bob Moore to Gulf County
Commission on dealing with DCA
over Comprehensive Pflan


defend the county in case this
thing is not settled by the dead-
line."
Wells said Baskerville-
Donovan, Engineers, author of
the plan, have a contract to serve
the county through the adminis-
trative hearing and that their ex-
pertise should be available to
Moore in providing information
':with which to defend the county.
"At some point in time,
they're going to stop talking and
start playing lawsuit, and we
don't want to be caught in such a
situation unprepared," Moore
concluded.
SECOND CHAPTER
The second chapter in the
'.matter of Wewahitchka being dis-
satisfied with the way their road
paving was handled was played
out Tuesday night, with the Com-
mission still as confused as ever
over the position the Wewahitch-
ka City Commission has taken
; over the matter.
In an earlier meeting, the
Commission had agreed to hand
over the remainder of a $400,000
road paving fund, ear-marked for
the north Gulf County city, for
them to manage on their own.
There were strings attached, how-
ever. The money could be used
- only for paving purposes.


Holy Week Services -SAeduled


Easter worship emphasis
will be conducted by the Port St.
Joe Ministerial Association this
weekend, as the community and
the Christian world observes
holy week; the week of the cruci-
fixion, burial and resurrection of
Jesus Christ
Marking the hour when
Christ died, the ministers will
lead in a Good Friday worship
activity Friday at noon, lasting
until 1:00 p.m.
The special worship oppor-
tunity will be held at the First
United Methodist Church with
Rev. Jerry Huft, pastor of the St.
James Episcopal Church, bring-


ing the message.
Other ministers of the Asso-
ciation will be taking part on the
program.
SUNRISE SERVICE
Easter Sunrise Services will
be held this year in the First Un-
ion Bank Park at Fifth Street
and Highway 98, beginning at
7:00 a.m., with Rev. William
Smith, pastor of White City Bap-
tist Church, giving the invoca-
tion.
This special worship empha-
sis is also sponsored by the Min-
isterial Alliance and has become
an annual Easter tradition.
Rev. George Malone, pastor


of the Church of the Nazarene,
will be giving the Easter mes-
sage.
Other ministers taking part
in the program will be Rev. Ze-
doc Baxter, First United Metho-
dist Church, giving the welcome;
Dr. Dan Duncan, Long Avenue
Baptist, leading the offertory
prayer and Rev. Rawlis Leslie of
Zion Fair Church, pronouncing
the benediction.
Rev. Keith Pate, minister of
music at Long Avenue, will be
singing the special music.
In case of rain, the Sunrise
Services will be held in the audi-
torium of the First United Meth-
odist Church.


The Wewahitchka Commis-
sion agreed to the arrangement,
but Tuesday night, the Board was
in receipt of a letter from Wewa-
hitchka attorney, Pat Floyd, de-
manding the money be released
to Wewahitchka, or threatening
legal action if it wasn't. Floyd's
letter, apparently written at the
direction of the Commission,
asked for the entire $400,000
plus any interest it might have
earned.
The agreement reached called
for Wewahitchka to receive only
the portion of the fund which was
not already incumbered and there
would be no interest forthcoming.
Also, Tuesday, there were in-
voices from the road contractor,
C. W. Roberts Construction Com-
pany, for approximately $40,000
worth of paving against the fund.
The City Commission had agreed
on paper to pay the invoice, but
gave voice instructions not to pay
about half the bill because their
recently-hired inspector, Robert
Nations had not yet approved the
-work.
Attorney Moore advised the
County Board not to pay any-
thing they did not have written
instructions to pay. 'We're getting
two messages here," Moore said.
'"We're being told to pay and not
to pay and we don't want to get
caught in the middle."
Some of the paving had been
done prior to the time Wewahitch-
ka's Commission expressed their
dissatisfaction and wanted to hire
their own inspector. They have
now hired Nations, owner of
Landmark Surveying, to do their
inspection work.
In the meantime, the County
Commission has decided they will
move in the matter, only when
they have definite instructions in
writing to do so.
AMBULANCE CONTRACT
Wells advised the Commis-
sion that he and attorney Moore
had completed negotiations on a
contract with Gulf Pines Hospital
to furnish ambulance service to
the southern portion of the
county, and saved $30,000 in the
process.
Wells said the new contract
was signed just a few days ago
and will be in effect for the next


two years. The agreement was the
second document hammered out
with the hospital within the past
six months. The latest document
was ironed out due to new state
and federal regulations governing
hospitals and their income.
Under the new agreement,
the hospital will furnish emergen-
cy medical service coverage for
$1.00 per year. In addition, they

will furnish indigent medical care
for $132,000 per year. The
county receives a $1,000 per
month credit, which totals the bill
expenditures to Gulf Pines for the
medical/ambulance service at
$120,000 per year.
In addition to the Gulf Pines
contract, the Commission agreed
to purchase a radio system for
the south Gulf County emergency
services. The county is eligible for
a matching grant of $4,889 for
the equipment and must furnish
a like 'amount of local money.

Bruner

Says Aid

Approved

Senator Vince Bruner,
ID, Ft. Walton Beach, an-
nounced yesterday that
Gulf County, on behalf. of
Sunbelt Fish Farms, Inc.,
was approved for an award
from the Economic Devel-
opment Transportation
Fund In the. amount of
$990,000. This funding has
been recommended to cpn-
struct an access road from
County Road 381 to the
company's site.
Senator Bruner stated,
"The Economic Develop-
ment Transportation Fund
is designed to induce com-
panies to locate or expand
In Florida. The utilization
of this fund is expected to
result in 103 additional job
opportunities for the citi-
zens of Gulf County. It is
with great enthusiasm that
I welcome Sunbelt Fish
Farms, Inc. I am very hap-
py that the State of Florida
was in a position to pro-.
vide assistance through
this transportation fund."


Roy Smith, left, makes a point to Con- as a group of businessmen explained a Senator Connie Mack listens to George left and Greg Johnson show their interest,
gressman Pete Peterson Monday morning, need for flood insurance coverage. Duren as Mayor Frank Pate, second from Tuesday morning.


Cong. Peterson, Sen. Mack Give Their Attention to Port St. Joe


U.S. Representative Pete Peterson and Sen-
ator Connie Mack both paid a visit to Port St.
Joe this week, with Peterson showing up-10
minutes late-for a breakfast meeting with
Chamber of Commerce members Monday
morning and Senator Mack making a mid-
morning visit Tuesday with area businessmen
and Republican members and supporters.

Peterson spent much of his time Monday
explaining his objection to .an early shooting
war in the Middle East, but said that "after the


a


debate over the matter was ended, there was
unanimous support and cooperation by all of
Congress for the decision which was hammered
out. It was democracy in its truest form with
everyone expressing themselves and coming to-
gether to support the President in the decision.
The only question was in the timing of the hos-
tilities, not whether or not they should be en-
tered into."

The Congressman touched on several other
timely matters and listened attentively as sever-


al businessmen
flood insurance
Blas/St. Joseph


lobbied him for his support of
availability for the Cape San
Peninsula area.


MACK'S WHISTLE STOP
Senator Connie Mack and his wife, Phyllis,
met with Gulf County Republican and Demo-
cratic supporters at mid-morning in a whistle-
stop appearance.
He, too, touched on the successful Middle
East war, saying, "I think President Bush's de-
cision-once he had the total support of Con-


gress-to turn operation of the campaign over
to the military to direct, was instrumental in
saving countless American lives. The victory
was a defining event for America, causing a re-
birth of patriotism in our nation."
The Senator said he didn't think Florida
was receiving all the tax money it was due from
the U.S. treasury in support for services in the
state. He also said he felt recent loss of Repub-
lican seats in Congress and state houses was
due to an abandonment of the catch phrase,
"No New Taxes".

In God We Trust IHunker Down with Kes


Sunday, the Christian world celebrates Easter, one of the two
most celebrated of all Christian holidays. Churches will be full
and people's attention will be focused on the Resurrection, with
the story being told one more time to all who will gather and lis-
ten. Like the story of the Virgin Birth at Christmas-time, the sto-
ry of the Resurrection is now nearly 2,000 years old, but it is
still retold with the same awe and gusto as on that first Easter
morning, when the tomb was found empty by the two Marys and
the other women.
Most of America will at least give lip service to Easter. There
are those,. however, who feel it is their right not to hear the Res-
urrection story, nor any other story, reading or reference to
Christianity in public or private.
The thing which does bother us at this Easter season is the
mentality among the supposedly Christian majority of this na-
tion which will make it easier for a court system to declare that
it shall be the law of the land that there will be no more prayers
uttered toward God at graduation or commencement exercises in
the school systems throughout our country. It would make more
sense to us if the courts were to say, "Christians are in the ma-
jority in this country. It is your right not to have to listen to
prayers at graduation or commencement exercises ... or athlet-
ic games or to hear Bible devotionals at the beginning of a
day, etc., but since the majority Christian citizenry of this nation
desires to hear and participate in these activities, we give you
permission to step out of the room, go home, hold your hand
over your ears, stuff cotton in your ears or turn your walkman
up if you so desire when these things are done. You are not
forced to participate, so kindly leave the room so those who de-
sire to participate may do so as is their inalienable right. Then,
when these Christian oriented citizens are on your turf, it's their
turn to leave."
With the advent of this Easter season, we can't help but sup-
pose that God chuckled a little under his breath when President
George Bush, the head mortal in this nation, appeared on televi-
sion and asked the entire nation--supposedly athetiests, Islams,
Buddhists, Shintos, devil worhippers, etc., included-to spend
some -time in prayer for our Nation and its role in the Middle
East. He didn't ask for the permission of the courts to make his
suggestion, nor did he confer with the anti-Christian groups on
his decision to call the nation to prayer. He knew the majority
were Christian, who trusted God for guidance. We feel, this East-
er, that God has taken notice of this action by the Prdsident
which still says on its coins, "In God We Trust".



No Claim On Expertise

The Persian Gulf war resulted in the discreditation of two of
the scrungiest acting and looking non-leaders in the world. Both
Saddam Hussein and Yassir Arafat are taking their lumps from
other Arabs in their part of the world, for their mishandling of
the best interests of the Arab people.
Hussein, of course, has committed obvious mistakes with his
people and for his trouble, he is reaping the whirlwind of discon-
tent among his own people. They are fighting the dictator, tooth
and toenail for control of Iraq, after his stupid activities devas-
tated their country. Apparently the nation had a good living
staAdard for its people; plenty to eat, all the amenities of an ef-
fluent society and a reasonably secure future.
Rather than the good, enjoyable life today, their life is now a
shambles and their country is all but destroyed. What's left is
being cut up by the Kurds and other rebel bands intent on send-
ing old Saddam to visit Allah a little earlier than he might nor-
mally do so.
And Yassir Arafat is in about the same bucket of hot water
with his Palestinians for tossing his chips in with Hussein. It's
as if they were saying, "If you must choose sides, why didn't you
choose the winning side?"
As for choosing, neither the Palestinians nor Arafat have
much of a claim on expertise. It's true, Arafat sat down on the
side of the loser but, when you consider Arafat's appearance, it
would seem as if the Palestinians could have picked a leader
who would have a little more charisma where they wish to have
influence. Just the appearance of Arafat is enough to sow suspi-
cion of his intentions when he comes passing out his olive
branches while wearing that oily smile. Arafat just looks sneaky
mean. If the Palestinians were to select a leader with more sense
in his selecting sides and who knows how to make himself pre-
sentable in the presence of others, it should help their cause im-
mensely.


You Ready Boys


My, arms were getting tired. I
was hanging from a bent over
tree. My heavy hip boots, dan-
gling about two feet under water,
greatly impeded my progress
across the ditch. Moose's dog was
barking every breath now, flash-
ing those vicious teeth and wait-
ing for me to drop down on his
side of the ditch. That crazy near-
sighted, tear-em up, about half
wild attack dog thought I was a
coonl
It crossed my mind to just let
go. I'd fall into the water, swim
back to the safe bank, empty out


S.. Boys? BOYS?


my boots and me and Jake could
high-tail-it out to the road. Moose
could come in here and get his
own dogs Do you remember
when that big. scaly monster
came shimmering up under water
in The Creature From The Black
Lagoon and grabbed that lady?
Listen folks, they didn't kill that
thing. It got away, and it's still
out there No way could I drop
down into that murky darkness.
You know, I've often sat and
wondered why people do dumb
things. I don't think you just
wake up in the morning, go out


and fall into these situations. No,
I think you've got to work at it.
"Kes, It's just a few more feet.
you've got it made." Jake was full
of encouragement. And "having it
made" all kind'a depends on your
Individual perspective.
"Stop that barking Gabby.
You crazy dog, it's me! Down boy,
back, get back, nice doggy." Crazy
near-sighted idiot, he's going to
eat me up.
"Jake, what happened to our
plan?"
"If you'd quit resting, and get
on over there, it will work fine."


Kesley
Colbert


"I mean our plan about the
boys."
Jake and I have been hunting
together for the better part of 20
years. If the dogs tree'd, we went
to'em. If a dog wouldn't go into
the woods, one of us carried him
in. When we made it to the tree
and a young dog wasn't treeing,
one of us got down on all fours
and barked up. We took turns
climbing the tree to shake or
knock the coon out I remember
one particular night and a very
bushy tree, I climbed up there,
pulled some limbs back out of the
way and kind'a hunkered down
while Jake shot the coon out on
the limb above me. If it was dry
and the snakes were out, we
went. If there was water axle deep
to a ferris wheel, we got wet We
hunted once with a dog that
wouldn't bark, he had a bell tied
around his neck so you'd know
where he was. We've hunted with
dogs that were so bad, me ard
Jake could sometimes beat them
to the tree. We've hunted with
those big time boys from Tennes-
see, they'd bring their dogs down
in air conditioned vans. I'd be em-
barrassed to pull my old pot lick-
ers out of the box to throw in
with those guys. Folks, we've
hunted some.
And we often crawled out of
the woods after a long night,
pulled ourselves up on the tail-
gate and talked of the time when
our sons would be old enough to
go with us. "Kes, won't that be
nice."
"Father and son, hunting to-
gether. That's the way it's sup-
posed to be."
'We'll bring lounge chairs, lis-
ten to a good race, let'em tree a
while, and open up an R.C. Cola
and say, 'boys go shoot him out!'"
'We'll never have to leave the
road again."
"Coon hunting with our own
sons, it won't get any better than
that!"
Jake and I must'a had that
same conversation almost every
night for 20 years. Oh, what an-
ticipation! Well, we've both got
sons old enough to hunt. We
bought'em fancy Wheat lights,
Carhartt overalls, four-wheelers
and the new snake proof frog
legs. Much better equipment than
we ever had. So what's the prob-
lem you ask? Well, it's me down
in the middle of these woods,
hanging in a tree with the crea-
ture from the Black Lagoon chew-
ing on my left ankle. The boys are
old enough, but we can't get'em
out here.
"Jake, I'm too old for this sort
of thing." I swung my right hand
over my left, lifted my boots out of

ETA OIN SHRDLU


By: Wesley R. Ramsey


Just A Ragweed on the Lush Lawn of Life


I'VE FOUND IT necessary to
interrupt my little running saga
of life in the newspaper lane to
take care of some necessary bits
of information which have turned
up over the past two weeks.
And, too, last week, Carol, my
daughter who takes care of office
supplies around The Star, saun-
tered into the composing room
where I \was laying out some pag-
es for last week's paper. She was
picking around what I was doing,
looking at what was news and
seeing who was advertising that
particular week and she re-
marked, "How many more weeks
of this stuff are there?"
I'm not a rocket scientist, by
any means, but this equated
thusly, to me: "How many more
weeks have I got to read this bor-
ing stuff?"
Carol's kind of blunt.


SO, BECAUSE OF unpopular
demand. I will at least give you a
week's rest on the trials and trib-
ulations of Wesley in the newspa-
per business.
This past week, I had a birth-
day. I was born on the day before
spring officially arrives, which
should be the proper place in the
year for me to be born in. You
know; when the sap starts rising.
. and when weeds start becom-
ing a nuisance.
Considering the respect [or
lack of] I received on my natal
day, I'm beginning to believe
there are those who look on me
as a ragweed on the lawn of life.
About noon, Bill Parker came
marching into the composing
room where we were trying to get
the front page made up and go to
the dark room, and plunked a
bunch of balloons down on the
table where I was banging away
at the computer. The balloons


had a brick tied on to the end to
keep them from floating off and
Bill sang really sang. I got a
singing telegram along with my
bunch of colored balloons tied to
a brick.
Everybody said Lisa [Lisa Giv-
en, our computer operator] did it.
Lisa would neither confirm nor
deny it
I thought I was getting to be a
little old to be receiving balloons,
to play with.
I got a birthday cake about
the size of a cupcake when I got
home, with the admonition that I
didn't need a cake any larger
than that.
In other words, I got no re-
spect for my birthday.
Sitting in the garage was an
old second-hand lawn mower my
son-in-law and daughter had
brought over for a birthdlay
present. I couldn't figure if it was
a signal to do some manual labor
or they didn't have room for it in


their Junk room.
Anyhow. It's in my carport
now, sitting in the spot where I
normally park my car so I can get
out of it in the rain without get-
ting wet.
I'm accustomed to getting
crowded out, though. I came
home one evening and Frenchie
had a guy putting a -petition.
across my side of the garage,
shutting off half of my parking
space.
Now, the lawn mower has the
other half.
That night, when I got to
choir practice down at the Long
Avenue Baptist Church, they
sang "Happy Birthday" to me, but
that was before the matter was
made to be the subject of deri-
sion.
Audrey Ayers beamed from
ear to ear, clapped her hands and
put me in my place by chortling,
"Oh boy! Now, you're the oldest
member of the choir all by your-


self'
And, everybody Just laughed!
. like that was funny, or some-
thing.
But, don't get the idea I mind
getting older. I don't mind it at
all. Not only do I feel good, but
getting older is better than the al-
ternative.

I'D LIKE TO get to be as old
as Herman Dean, if I could still
navigate under my own steam at
that age.
I thought the special day they
gave Mr. Dean the other Sunday
was a fine gesture to his contri-
bution over a long, full life. Dean
has been retired here in Port St.
Joe for a number of years, but he
is still remembered by practically
everyone who knows him [and
that's almost everyone] as "Mr.
Band".
Dean's being the only survi-
vor of the original John Phillip
Sousa band is enough reason to


give him special attention. He is a
one-of-a-kind for this reason
alone.
Dean is the kind of indepen-
dent personality which made this
country strong, too. He is still de-
termined to do everything for
himself. He even let his beard
grow because his eyesight was
getting too poor to shave himself
and he wasn't about to depend on
someone else to shave him!
I know there were a lot of
people involved in arranging the
celebration for Dean. There were
a lot of people who drove a large
number of miles in an absolutely
putrid week end to get here and
attend the ceremony. I don't
know all the people involved, but
I do know, from personal knowl-
edge that Charlotte Pierce put a
lot of time into arranging for the
afternoon of lauding Dean. Char-
lotte and all the others who
helped, did a fine job. It was a
ceremony fitting for any person
who deserves accolades.

Phantry

Wendell Campbell


Speed's Southern Gulf
Ask anyone who attended the University of Southern Mississip-
pi before 1970 where Speed's Southern Gulf was located and they
will more than likely tell you, without hesitation, that it was located
on the southwest comer at the intersection of Hwy. #49 and Hardy
Street in Hattiesburg, Mississippi.
Speed's was a landmark to most people who attended school
there and to many of them, like myself, it was much more. It was
the focal point of all off-campus activity. This was especially true of
football players who were close friends of M.D. Speed, the owner
and operator.
M.D. Speed, like many business people in a college town, was a
staunch supporter of the "Golden Eagles." But to many of us, Speed
was much more than that To many of us he was a "father-friend"
figure; a person we could go to and express anything that was both-
ering us. He also ran a bank of sorts for those of us who needed
cash assistance from time to time.
Loans would range from $5 to $10 and there was no papers to
sign and no collateral was necessary. Your word that the money
would be repaid when you received your monthly laundry check
($10 per month for those of us on scholarships) was good enough
for Speed. Your credit limit could be increased provided you had a
part-time job or were expecting money from home for your birthday
or some other special event. All transactions, however, were done
by verbal agreement, unless you failed to repay previously. In that
case, a note was written and placed under the cash drawer as a re-
minder of the amount due and the date it was to be paid.
If you were really on the "In" at Speed's, as I was after my first
few visits there, you were invited into the "back room" after 5 p.m.
The back room was a storage room where Speed kept al, his service
station supplies, like cases of oil, paper towels and toilet tissue, fan
belts, paper cups and drinks for the coke nhachine and whiskey.
You know, things that are important when you run a service station
in a college town.
Many of us who were on the "In" at Speed's didn't have an
abundance of money and we would often stop by Speed's after five
and get primed for our dates. Doing this would save us money we
didn't have and it was a convenient place for our dates to pick us
up because none of us had cars. And when they did pick us up, we
were ready!
Speed's Southern Gulf was a hub of activity and. information.
All directions and off-campus travel started at Speed's. Also, any re-
turning alumni always stopped at Speed's before coming on cam-
pus to get the- latest information concerning everything, especially
sports news.
About five years after graduating from Southern, I stopped in
for a visit and to check the latest news concerning the current foot-
ball team. While standing in the office I noticed that a beautiful
blond had pulled up to the pump and had her gas tank filled. When
she came inside to pay I realized she was even more beautiful than
I thought I said, "Hi", but she didn't speak or even acknowledge my
existence. I noticed, however, that she paid with a check.
When she left I asked Speed, "Who was that girl? I think I know
her."
Speed said, 'You know, she comes in here all the time, but I
can't think of her name."
"She gave you a check," I said. "Get it out and let's'see what her
name is."
I jotted down her name and address and a few days later called
her. Less than two years later we were married and that lady is my
current wife.
I shall be forever thankful to M.D. Speed and Speed's Southern
Gulf for that and many other things. If I ever become rich I think I
will buy that corner and erect a, monument to Speed's Southern
Gulf and M.D. Speed foi the help we received there. The motto in-
scribed would be: "A friend in need is a friend indeed"

hard for the last few years to im-
prove the fire classification of the
area. With the addition of man-
power, new equipment, and train-

some policies now in effect

school.
One of the unit's advisors,
Master Gunnery Sergeant Gary
Howze, who had served as Com-
pany K's Senior Enlisted Marine
before his retirement from the
Marine Corps, arranged for his
unit to PT with Corry's Marine
Support Battalion. In formation
alongside the Leathernecks of
Company K, the Junior ROTC ca-
dets toughed it through calisthen-
ics led by Captain Frank Cublllo,
company commanding officer.
Then they ran the one-mile dis-
tance from the barracks to the
Marine's obstacle course for a
grueling test of strength, endu-
rance, and agility. The experience
no doubt gave the cadets a better
appreciation for the Marine
Corps' highly-demanding physical
fitness standards.
-Such' Junior ROTC indoctri-
nation visits compliment cadets'
school training by providing them
with a firsthand look at actual
military operations, training, and
day-to-day life.

Proper Water Quality Study of St. Joe Bay


Covers Several Years of Intensive Sampling


Doing a water quality evalua-
tion study of St. Joseph Bay or
any other body of water is a long
and expensive process, Gary Dal-
bec, an engineer with Alvarez-
Lehman Associates, told the Ro-
tary Club last Thursday.
The speaker said nobody can
,adequately come to a conclusion
about the condition of any body
of water without such a study.
Alvarez-Lehman is a national-
ly known research firm doing
such a study for the City of Port
St Joe in order to justify an oper-
ating permit for its Wastewater
Treatment Plant from federal and
state permitting agencies. The
.WQES study is a requirement


from the agencies and has been
in progress for the past two years
at a cost of approximately one-
quarter million dollars. Dalbec
said the total study has several
years to go before it is completed.
To date, the study has been
limited to the area just outside
the Gulf County Canal outlet into
the bay. 'The full study report
must cover the entire bay," Dal-
bec told Rotarians.
The study is performed to
find out how any particular efflu-
ent has changed the water quality
in the receiving waters and use
the data to predict what contin-
ued outfall will cause in the re-
ceiving waters.


Dalbec said that although the
study had been underway for
only two years, Port StL 'Joe is for-
tunate in that its governing body
started such a monitoring of this
particular body of water, where
outfall is entering St. Joseph Bay
from its treatment plant,, nearly
20 years ago. "The city has docu-
mentation on the changing quali-
ty of the bay waters which would
have taken years for any study
group to compile. Their years of
study has put the City in good
position to prove their position
with the regulating agencies," the
speaker said.
The speaker said this activity
on the part of the City, was one of
the best moves they could have

made, because environmental
laws have changed considerably
over the -years which makes
much of this information invalua-
ble for a proper assessment of the
affect the treatment plant outfall
Is having on the bay waters.
Dalbec said, based on past
records and the testing program
his firm has done over the past
two years indicate the plant out-
fall is having no adverse effect on
the receiving waters. He said his
firm hasn't been testing long
enough to definitely say whether
or not there is improvement or
degradation of bay waters from
the plant outfall. He said that
from all indications, there doesn't
appear to be any degradation.
Actually, there are two kinds
of water in the Bay to be con-
cerned with. Drawing a line ap-
proximately from the City Limits
line to St. Joseph Point, those wa-
ters lying on the south would be
in Class II waters and water lying
to the north of the imaginary line
is classified as Class III waters.
Class II waters are defined as be-
ing of sufficient quality to grow
shellfish for human consumption.
Class III waters are those consid-
ered safe for water sports and
swimming.
The speaker said water qual-
lity requirements change almost
annually and that public input is
considered as well as purity when
water classes are established. "If
the public wants a change in
classification, they are listened to
by the state and federal govern-
ments no matter what the chem-
istry readings are."
Guests of the club were John
Frothingham of Champaign, Illi-
nois, Vance Wagoner of Colum-
bus, Georgia, Larry McArdle and
Pete White, both of Port St Joe.

Sharks Down Gators 2-0 In 9 Innings


Port St. Joe's Sharks took the
Wewahitchka Gators into extra
innings Monday afternoon, as
they edged the Gators, 2-0.
Matt Taylor slammed a dou-
ble in the ninth inning to get on
base. Jon Elliott attempted a
bunt on a suicide squeeze play
but was interferred with by the
Gator catcher. The interference
put Elliott on base, and Taylor
scored the winning run. Kyle Grif-
fin gave the Sharks an insurance
run as he tripled, scoring Elliott,
for the only scores in the pitchers'
duel. Both teams played almost
perfect baseball, with the Sharks
erring twice and the Gators mak-
ing one mis-cue.
Matt Taylor went the full nine
innings for the Sharks. Mark
Lester went eight innings before
being lifted for reliever Denny
McGlon. Each starting pitcher
scattered seven hits. Taylor's 14
strike-outs gave him the edge
over his mound opponent.
Tyrone Hamilton and Elliott
singled for the Sharks.
Denny McGlon rapped a dou-
ble for the Gators' big hit.

Floridians collected 76,000
tons of glass bottles and jars for
recycling in 1990. The newly re-
leased volumes represent a 55
percent increase over the previ-
ous year.
Gulf County is not to be left
out in the cold. The county is cur-
rently recycling glass using large
igloo-style containers located at
Wewahitchka Elementary, Port
St. Joe High School, White City
Fire Department, Highland View
Fire Department and Overstreet
Fire Department. Brown, green,
and white glass is being collected
and stockpiled until sold. It has.
been noted that people are leav-,
ing paper at the igloos. As of yet,
there are no paper containers,
available. Please do not ,leave
paper at any of the above loca-
tions until the igloos have been
obtained.
"The continued strong growth
of glass recycling in Florida is en-
couraging as the industry works


to help communities meet their
solid waste reduction goals," said
David Baker, director of the in-
dustry-supported Southeast
Glass Recycling Program.
c: The 76,000 tons of glass recy-
cled in Florida last year repre-
sents a savings in energy equiva-
lent to 684,000 gallons of fuel oil.
"In addition to the energy sav-
ings," Bakers said "the use of
glass helps save valuable natural
resources and keeps 100 percent
recyclable glass out of the waste
stream."
... Currently 40 percent of Flo-
ridians participate in curbside re-
cycling programs and with your
help, Gulf County can raise, this
number. And a recent Gallup Poll
showed over 50 percent of those
.. yvrveyed favor curbside recycling.
a as the first choice in fighting the
9' sdlid waste crisis.
Over the past five years, glass
recycling in Florida has increased
by 185 percent.'

Faith Is A Wonderful Mystery


THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE, FL THURSDAY, Mar. 28, 1991


In your thinking, have you
dealt with the subject of mystery?
There are many things that baffle
us because their meaning Is hid-
den and mysterious.
Ordinary life is enshrouded
with mystery. The natural world
holds a lot of secrets, some of
which may never be revealed to
humankind.
We become so accustomed to
mystery in our daily routines that
we forget it exists. For instance,
we use electronic devices like tele-
phonesi microwaves, and com-
puters with no consideration of
the mystery surrounding electri-
cal energy.
This doesn't frighten us, nor
does it prevent us from accessing
this great power source. We are
so accustomed to the benefits de-


Toward Understanding
y Rev. Jerry Huft, Rector St. James and St. John's Churches


rived from the use of electric pow-
er that we don't give it a second
thought.
We only consider our depen-
dence on electricity when it is
taken away. I well remember the
powerless days after the last hur-
ricane when we all lost our frozen
foods, and went to bed by lamp
light.
We only fear electricity when
we see someone's home burning
because of faulty wiring, or when
we inadvertently come in contact
with it. I recently felt the surge of
house current when I touched the


bottom of a garbage disposal unit
while trying to determine the
source of a leak under the sink.
What a reminder
Christianity is full of mystery
too. That shouldn't surprise us. If
we don't understand our natural
world, why should we expect to"
understand God's supernatural
world?
Yet, I personally know people
who refuse to move ahead in their
commitment to God because they
can't understand God's secrets. I
also know people who won't even
enter into a relationship with the


Lord because they haven't figured
out the mysteries of faith.
One of the most profound
mysteries of God is that he be-
came a person, lived the life of a
man, died for our sins, and re-
turned to his mysterious heaven-
ly realm.
As Easter Day approaches.
we should consider the magni-
tude of this mystery. We will nev-
er understand it But we need to
consider where we would be if
God had denied its access to us.
We must also deeply respect its
awesome power.
Easter is a jolting reminder of
the wonderful mystery of our
faith. May this mystery profound-
ly affect your life as you consider
God's grace.

"Christ In the Passover"

at Honeyville Church


Christ In The Passover is a
sermonic demonstration given to
show how Christ fulfilled the ty-
pology inherent in the ancient
feast.
The traditional items will be
set on the table, the speaker will
explain the items and procedure
of the Seder Feast which predates
the birth of Phrist by 1500 years.
Special emphasis will be giv-
en to the redemptive significance
of each item, and the meaning of
the gestures of Christ at the "Last
Supper" will be told.
The Unleavened Bread, Pass-


Easter

Musical


atLABC
The Day He Wore My Crown,
a resurrection musical arranged
by David Clydesdale, will be pre-
sented by the Praise Choir of
Long Avenue Baptist Church Sat-
urday, March 30 and-again on-
Sunday, March 31 in the evening.
9 Both presentations Will begin at
7:00 p.m. in the church auditori-
um.
The community is cordially
invited and encouraged to cele-
brate the resurrection through
music by attending one or both
presentations of The Day He Wore
My Crown at Long Avenue Baptist
Church on Saturday, March 30
or Sunday, March 31 at 7:00
p.m.


Revival at Slated at
Thomp'son Temple


There will be a spirit filled re-
vival at Thompson Temple FBC
April 16-19 at 7:30 p.m. nightly.
The church is located at 210 Ave-
nue E, Port St. Joe. The commu-
nity is invited to attend for spiri-
tual strength, reviving, and
salvation to the lost.
Come one, come all.


over Wine, and the procedure re-
lating to two, sheds much light
on the meaning of Christian com-
munion. Much of what the speak-
er has to say is from the stand-
point of Jewish family training,
which has been brought into fo-
cus by his theological training as
a Christian minister.
Besides giving Christians in-
sight into Jewish traditions, it is
hoped that this service will create
understanding to help Jewish
people of the community to know
more about Christ and to help
Christians to appreciate the Jew-
ish heritage and alleviate any
anti-Jewish feelings.
The whole community is invit-
ed to attend this service spon-
sored by Honeyville United Meth-
odist Church, Hwy. 71, four miles
south of Wewahitchka. Services
will be held on Good Friday,
March 29 at 6:00 p.m. CT.

Jodi Mapes


Jodi Mapes

Winner In

Mathematics
The United State Achievement
Academy announced that Jodi
Mapes a been named a United
States Award winner in Mathe-
matics.
This award is a prestigious
honor very few students can ever
hope to attain. In fact, the Acade-
my recognizes less than 10 per-
cent of all American high school
students.
Jodi, who attends Port St Joe
Jr.-Sr. High School, was nominat-
ed for this National Award by
Scott J. Taylor, a mathematics
teacher at the school. Jodi will
appear in the United States
Achievement Academy Official
Yearbook, published nationally.
"Recognizing and supporting
our youth is more important than
ever before in America's history.
Certainly United States Achieve-
ment Academy award winners
should be congratulated and ap-
preciated for their dedication to
excellence and achievement," said
Dr. George Stevens, Executive Di-
rector of the United States
Achievement Academy.
The Academy selects USAA
winners upon the exclusive ret-
ommendation of teachers, coach-
es, counselors or other school
sponsors and upon the Stan-
dards of Selection set forth by the
Academy. The criteria for selec-
tion are a student's academic per-
formance, interest and aptitude,
leadership qualities, responsibili-
ty, enthusiasm, motivation to
learn and improve, citizenship,
attitude and cooperative spirit,
dependability, and recommenda-
tion from a teacher or director.
Jodi is the daughter of Mar-
tha Mapes of Port St. Joe.
