County Paring $1.2 Million



From Budget Requests


* The Gulf County Commission started
its budget sessions Tuesday afternoon,
with the knowledge that the requests for
funds currently filed would increase Gulfs
millage rate over the 10 mill legal cap, if
all the requests were funded.
The watchword Tuesday afternoon, in
their first budget session was, "Reduce all
budgets by 5%". But reality soon caught
up with them as they went through the
* various requests. State law has increased
the salaries and retirement contributions
of all constitutional officers. The salary in-
creases vary but hover around 3.5% for
wage increases and 10% and under for re-
tirement contributions.
REQUESTS SOAR
Requests for increased expenditures
soared when budget work was initially
started for this fiscal year. The Board
found itself faced with requested increases
of $1,077,034, or nearly 25% of the cur-
rent budget figure.
The largest increase requests came
from the Sheriffs office and the Mosquito
Control Department, with most of the oth-
er departments reflecting fund hikes of
various sizes.
The Mosquito Control, the department
with the responsibility of handling the
County's solid waste program, has asked


for a $438,401 increase in operating
funds.
The big ticket items in the budget re-
quest includes funding for four additional
employees, vehicle maintenance, new
equipment, motor fuel and lubricants.
The Commission hasn't tackled this
budget, yet.
Sheriff Al Harrison has made a request
for an additional $95,965.00 for operation
of his department and the Gulf County
Jail. The Sheriff says it will cost an addi-
tional $61,216 to maintain law enforce-
ment services during the coming year. Op-
eration of the jail would cost an additional
$34,749.
The Sheriff is asking for money to em-
ploy one new Deputy Sheriff, purchase
three new cars and for two additional cor-
rectional officers.
Both departments are caught in the
middle of increased emphasis on handling
of solid waste to state specifications and
increased emphasis toward getting crimi-
nals off the streets and in jail. The County
has the request for the money it will take
to meet state requirements in these two
departments.
But, there are more increase requests,
too. The Road and Bridge Department is
asking for an additional $28,468; Inciner-


ator services, $25,000; Mental Health,
$10,643; Repreation and Parks, $19,724;
Library roof repair, $30,000, Reserve for
Contingencies, $22,688 and Resource Offi-
cer, $24,000.
Add to all these requests for increases,
requests from the many other county
funded operations, which are making
small requests for increases, and they all
add up to a chunk of real money.
DECREASES IN REVENUE
Along With the requests for increases
in revenue, there are several sizeable de-
creases in revenue which the county can
expect to experience next year. Add these
decreases all together, and they amount to
around $226,998, or about a half mill's
worth of taxes to replace.
The county can expect to receive
$24,969 less in State Revenue Sharing, in-
cluding an additional $20,713 in various
state funds which the county will not be
receiving next year.
The county's share of the sixth cent of
the state sales tax, is expected to be re-
duced by $110,616 next year. Gasoline
taxes, which finance much of the Road De-
partment operations, are expected to be
about $61,668 less and fees received from
the Department of Corrections are expect-
ed to be $7,200 less.


Clerk of the Court, Benny Lister, goes over his notes as
he outlines the several budget items to the County Commis-
sion in their initial meeting Tuesday afternoon.


Adopts 2nd Phase Contract for Downtown Redevelopment


The re-development of down-
town Port St. Joe took its second
step Tuesday night, as the City
Commission agreed to contract
with the University of Florida for


the second- phase of preparatory
work for the project.
The City will share the finan-
cial responsibilities of the con-
tract-some $8,868-with the


Police Charge 11


With Drug Sales

At Least Seven More Are Targets
of Warrants Already Prepared
Port St. Joe Police arrested three women and eight men
Tuesday and Wednesday, in connection with a crack cocaine
dealer roundup, according to Police Chief Carl Richter.
Chief Richter said his department has warrants for at least
seven more arrests in the dealer elimination operation. '"We're
hunting these other people now, and the warrants will be served
on them as we find them," Richter said.
The arrests brought to a head a two month investigation, us-
ing undercover purchases and informers. "We didn't completely
eradicate the drug market in Port St. Joe, but we put a serious
dent in it for a while," the Chief said.
Most of the evidence against those arrested was gathered
over the past two months with undercover narcotics purchases
by police informants.
ARRESTS MADE
Arrested Tuesday were:
Michelle Sims, 27, charged with sale of crack cocaine.
Meredith Rouse, 24, charged with sale of crack cocaine.
* Larry Morgan, 40, charged with sale of crack cocaine, pos-
session of cocaine and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Calvin Johnson, 39, charged with two counts of sale of crack
cocaine.
Jeff Dixon, 35, charged with sale of crack cocaine.
Ervin Coachman, 21, charged with two counts of sale of
crack cocaine.
Cedrick Beachum, 18, charged with sale of crack cocaine.
Johnese Exum, 39, charged with two counts of selling crack
cocaine.
Bobby Briggs, 33, charged with sale of crack cocaine.
Tyrone Hamilton, 30, two counts of sale of crack cocaine.
All of the above are residents of Port St. Joe.
George Felder, 18, of Bowling Green, Kentucky, was charged
on Friday of last week as a result of the same investigation. He is
still in Gulf County Jail, being held on a $25,000 bond.
FIRST APPEARANCE
Those arrested were to be brought before Gulf County Judge
David Taunton Wednesday afternoon for first appearance, at
which time ball would be set. Four of those charged-Rouse,
Dixon, Briggs and Beachum-will not be able to make bond.
Their arrests are violations of parole situations they are already
involved in.
Richter was elated over the fact that his department was able
to take 18 crack dealers off the street, with the arrest program,
but emphasized, "It probably won't be very long before someone
else takes their place. It's a constant task to keepup with these
sales people."
Sale of crack cocaine is a second degree felony. The charge
carries a maximum penalty of 15 years in prison and up to a
* $10,000 fine.


Merchants Association to get the
preliminary work completed to
the point where actual work can
begin on a revamping- of 'the
downtown area. The reason the
City is getting involved is that
much of the development hinges
on drainage rehabilitation, pav-
ing, street lights, water and sewer
services, sidewalks, etc., all City
responsibilities.
Dr. Peter E. Prugh, associate
professor of architecture, will be
directing the program, utilizing U.
of F. students in his department


for the actual work on the plan.
The work is expected to take
about a year to complete.
At that time, with informa-
L tion, design and preliminary engi-
neering obtained, the City and/or
the Merchants will be able to pro-
ceed with the financing and work
of revitalization.
COMPREHENSIVE PLAN
The City was notified by the
Department of Community Affairs
this week that there are still four
areas in its Comprehensive Plan
which are still not acceptable to


the Department and must be cor-
rected by December 31, 1991.
The four items which need
the changes made -are: Concur-
rency [revising executed contracts
which agree to a potable water
supply, sewer, solid waste and
drainage facilities]; Drainage level
of service [addressing potential
storm water pollutants associated
with residential developments];
Consistency with state Compre-
hensive Plan [comply, in an ac-
ceptable manner with state stat-
utes regulating waterfront

properties]; and Consistency with
the Regional Policy Plan [mostly
dealing with coordinating trans-
portation needs in the Immediate
area.]
The changes are currently be-
ing made and will be presented to
the DCA before the December
deadline, according to attorney
William J. Rish, who is working
with Smith and Gillespie, Engi-
neers, in preparation of the Plan
and its language.
ACTIVITY BOARD
At the suggestion of the
Chamber of Commerce, the Com-
mission created a Community Ac-
tivity Board, for the purpose ol
coordinating activities in Port St.
Joe.
As Mayor Pate put it, "the
Board should be able to prevent
some of the conflicts we have had
in the past with events being
scheduled in the City, allowing
people to attend more things they
are interested in without a con-
flict with some other activity."
Mayor Pate named Commis-
sioner Charles Tharpe, Chamber
of Commerce executive secretary
Tamara Laine and Wesley Ram-
sey to the committee.
To make the committee effec-
tive, planners of special events or
meetings should call the Cham-
ber office in the City Hall and give
the schedule of their intended
event. Anyone else who plans
something on the same date will
be told of the conflict, allowing
them to change their plans if they
desire.
BUDGET WORK
Commissioners started work
on their 1991-92 fiscal year bud-
get Wednesday afternoon in a
special workshop session, seek-
ing to at least hold the tax line in
a fiscal year which is seeing gov-
ernments all over the nation look
for ways to cut back and bring
expenditures within their expect-
ed revenues.
Clerk Alden Farn-is said the
City of Port St. Joe has had no fi-
nancial problems during this pe-

Nine Gulf Men Arrested In Illegal Fishing


The Florida Game and Fish
Commission has been conducting
an investigation into illegal meth-
ods of taking game fish from area
waters, according to a news re-
lease from the agency.
Most of the illegal fish have
been taken by shocking the fish,
causing them to rise to the sur-
face, where they are scooped up
in nets or by hand.
The illegal device is made
from inexpensive items pur-
chased from an electronics store.


The crackdown on the practice of
using the devices is being cen-
tered along the Apalachicola River
and the Choctawhatchee River,
with several arrests being made
along both rivers and their tribu-
taries over the past month.
In the Apalachicola River,
several arrests have been made
since mid-June, with eight Wewa-
hitchka men and one Port St. Joe
man were apprehended by the
Commission. The Star has
learned the names of two of the


Wewahitchka men, who were
charged through Gulf County ju-
dicial systems, but the other six,
who were apparently processed
through Calhoun and Franklin
County systems, were not imme-
diately identifiable early this
week.
The Game Commission didn't
reveal any names in their infor-
mation release, except to say that
several boats and motors were
confiscated in the arrests of the
Gulf County men.


The shock method of taking
fish-especialy catfish-has long
been a favorite of illegal fisher-
men. Before the high-tech prac-
tice, using electronic store gad-
gets, the fishermen used the old-
fashioned crank telephone mech-
anisms to accomplish the same
results.
Game Commission officials
feel many of the fish are being
caught by the stun method for
sale on the open market.

Budget Time!

Our local public officials deserve our support, our input and
our sympathies during the next couple of months, as" the various
governmental budgets in Gulf County are prepared for the next
taxing fiscal year.
From every direction, we are hearing, "tax income shortfall"
and "where can we make up for the shrinking income".
One thing we can all be thankful for, and that is that Florida
law requires that we spend no more than we take in with our
state's political subdivisions. That means we cannot spend dol-
lars we don't have coming in from some source. It also means
that if our people balk at paying extra taxes, something has to
go and we need to realize, going into the budget process that this
is the situation.
Another situation we need to realize is that a greater portion
of the money used to finance local operations on every level,'will
come from local pockets. The state and federal sources of money
for local projects and for local needs has dried up. Local opera-
tions will be paid for next year [and probably for years to come]
by local sources of income.
Already the school and county budget makers have been ad-
vised they can expect considerably less state and federal money
than they received last year. Here in Gulf County, the most pain-
ful state contribution cuts will be made in the county's Mosquito
Control operations and in its Road Department operations.
These two funds alone can expect cuts of at least $100,000. In a
budget of $4 million, this doesn't seem like much, but when you
start adding smaller chunks of funds being cut from various oth-
er budgets, they all add up to real money before you know it.
All of these cuts, along with continued environmental pres-
sures calling for big bucks for support, such as solid waste dis-
posal and pest control; increased pressures on the Road Depart-
ment, the Sheriffs Department, the court system, etc., all means
the County Commission is going to have to walk the longest
budget tightrope in modem history when they prepare their new
financial plan. The School Board has it no easier, nor does the
governments of both cities in the county.
Our local government officials will earn their pay this year,
for sure.



Helping Hand

A breath of fresh air has been added to the entrances to Port
St. Joe. The first of what is to be three new signs placed at the
entrance to the City has been put in place and it does us proud.
The new signs complement rather than detract from the first im-
pressions one receives of Port St. Joe.
The new signs are the product of a project of several months
duration by the Beautification Committee, which took on the de-
sign and preparation as their number one project.
We're not first to get an attractive, colorful sign placed at our
City entrance, but neither are we the least attractive.
The Beautification Committee has three of these signs com-
missioned--one for each of the three entrances-but only one
has beeprplaced into position as of now. The other two will be in-
stalled'if ji2sfta.short while. We presume, then, that it will only
be a matter of a short time before the area underneath the signs
will be landscaped; beautified to enhance their handiwork al-
ready accomplished.
The Committee has, of course, received the undivided sup-
port of the City Commission in funding the construction of the
signs. The Commission would probably get considerably more
done if more citizens did what the Beautification Committee has
done. They came up with an idea, put it on paper, secured a cost
estimate for their accomplishments and presented the package
to the Commission. The Commission thought the idea had merit,
came up with the funding, and the Improvement was accom-
plished.
Another improvement committee-the Downtown Redevelop-
ment Agency--is also getting into gear, to present ideas, plans,
budgets, etc., for improvement of the functional and ascetic fea-
tures of downtown Port St. Joe. When they are finished with
their work, in probably a year or so, they will also report to the
Commission, who will then react to the ideas.
It usually takes more time to come up with an idea and plan
it out than it does to do the actual work of seeing that it is done.
The Commission members don't have the kind of time necessary
to cover every base which needs covering. We find it gratifying to
know there are private citizens who have enough interest in their
City to give them a helping hand.


Hunker Down with Kes



Watermelon Pickers I Have Known


Kim, Jeanle. Joseph and a
couple of more friends Invited me
to eat some watermelon with
them a day or so ago. I took one
look at that cut open watermelon
and instinctively my hand went to
my left side the pain was
excruciating. I couldn't talk and
when I bent over from the pain,
Kim thought I was leaning for-
ward for a bite, so she crammed a
slice in my mouth. Watermelon
eaters are some of the most shar-
ing people on earth.
Jeanie, who had juice run-
ning down both her chins and
watermelon in each hand, looked


up. Kes, you O.K.? You don't
look so good."
1 spit seeds all over the table
and Just before 1 passed out I
managed to whisper, "Arch--
Archie Archie Moore."
When I was coming along,
near 'bout everybody grow'd off a
few watermelons. Archie Moore
probably had as big a patch as
anyone. He grew'em over on the
side of a hill between his house
and the barn. You've seen this
arrangement in hilly country -
the house would be out on the
hill and the barn would be tucked


In the valley below. One year Mr.
Archie hired Bubba and Earl to
pick his melons. Well. you know
old Bubba and Earl. They
wouldn't hit a lick at a snake!
Mostly, they just wore those
black leather Jackets year 'round,
rode those big motorcycles and
looked cool. They must'a needed
some money bad to actually take
a job! Bubba set up on Archie's
back porch and shot the stems in
two with a 30-30. Earl stood
down at the bottom of the hill
and collected up the melons as
they rolled down to him. I tell
you, that Bubba and Earl figured


Colbert


every angle.
Me and Ricky Gene and IBud-
dy used to "pick" some of Mr.
Archie's melons. We did our work
after dark. We'd come in from
behind the barn, crawl up that
hill, pick us a good one, and slide
back down feet first, rolling our
melon with us. We'd bust it open
with our fist, eat just the heart
and then crawl back up for
another one. I dqn't think Mr.
Archie would've minded if we'd
just got a melon or two. That was
part of growing up. What he
didn't like was getting up in the
morning and finding a dozen or
so melons busted open with just
a fistful of the middle missing out
of each. At least we figured later
that's what set him off.
I remember it was a dark
night. Good cover. We crawled up
that hill like we'd done so many
times. I'd "pulled" mine and was
easing back down when I heard
the very distinct sound of the
pump mechanism of a shotgun
throwing a shell into the cham-
ber.
'You boys hold it right there."
Folks, my heart did a dotible
back flip. I could stand up and let
my dad find out I was stealing
watermelons or I could get shbt. I
took off down that hill like a
scalded rat. Buddy and Ricky
Gene were right with me.
Booml I could hear that dou-
ble ought buckshot whizzing
past. Ricky Gene went down.
Boom! I dove to the ground and
tumbled to the bottom of the hill.
Ricky Gene was covered in red
stuff. He was yelling, "I'm hit! I'm
hit!"
I've seen those movies about
the '50's where the kids get in
trouble and the hero pulls his
friend to safety. Listen, this
wasn't a movie, .this was real life.
Boom! It was every, man for him-
selfl I jumped up and ran like the
wind into the pitch blackness.
Buddy was in front of me. I heard
him yell. Suddenly, I became very
calm. Think! I knew the layout of
Mr. Archie's land. Buddy had run
to the right of the barn and into
Archie's electric hog fence. I could
tell by the scream he was getting
a shock out of that. Hey, I'm
doing pretty good for a 13-year-
old. Got to keep my head. If I can
get around the barn, I'll be in the
woods and safety. I veered to the
left.
And I ran full speed into
Archie's old hay raker. It got me
low down on the left side. It felt
like one of those rakes went right
through me. We knew better than
to steal. We just didn't figure on
the retribution being so swift.
Ricky Gene was shot dead on the
hillside, Buddy was getting a

Little White House Should Be On Everyone's Agenda


TAKING A WEEKEND off is
usually a welcome activity for
: Frenchie and I, but the process of
: getting our schedule arranged to
go, and then recovering and get-
ting back in the swing after we re-
turn, sometimes makes us won-
der if it's really worth taking off
for a little R&R in the first place.
But, the long week ends must
be like childbirth to a woman.
They come along far enough
apart that the hectic activity
which surrounded the days off
have been forgotten and we just
plunge in again for a few days of
relief from the everyday job.
July fourth was no exception.
Frenchie and I took advantage of
the long weekend holiday and
took off for a few days in Atlanta
and Callaway Gardens. We left
town Wednesday morning, and I
don't think I even read a newspa-
per or saw a IV newscast again


until Sunday afternoon, when we
returned home and I had newspa-
pers from four days to go
through.

FIRST, WE WENT to Atlanta
Wednesday and spent the after-
noon and evening with brothers
there and the better part of the
evening in Atlanta Stadium,
watching the Atlanta Braves whip
the Cincinnati Reds. It was a
pleasant evening in the Stadium
and we had good seats, three
rows from the fence just above
the Atlanta bull pen.
I came away from the game
marvelling at how much younger
Juan Berenguer looks in person
than he does on TV. He warmed
up right in front of us and ap-
peared to be about 30 years old.
He looks 50 on TV.
Terry Pendleton put three line
drives right in front of where we
were sitting and all in all, it was


an enjoyable evening of baseball.
Ron Gant even stroked a home
run.

THURSDAY, WE went to
Callaway Gardens for the week-
end, spending Thursday after-
noon and all day Friday there.
Thursday evening, we
watched the water show on Robin
Lake and wondered where the
wall-to-wall people came from
which were visiting the beach
around the lake there.
We had gone there to see the
FSU Flying High circus perform
Thursday afternoon. A program of
events had them performing at
5:00 Thursday. Instead, they
were performing as a water ski
troupe on the lake.
That night, Callaway put on a
huge fireworks show in the beach
area, which drew people like a
magnet. We went back Friday
evening and 'saw a standing-
room-only performance by the
circus.


JUST A SHORT aside coin-
ment.
Most of you know Callaway
Garden's reputation for being a
superb exhibition of flowers,
greenery, etc.
The Gardens also has a cen-
ter built to display butterflies.
They have a glassed-in house
where the butterflies go through
their life cycle for visitors to the
center. There's films, pictures,
etc., telling all about American
butterflies and their habits.
The thing which drew my at-
tention was that Callaway Gar-
dens provides a better setting to
show off butterflies than the State
of Florida has to show off the first
Constitution of Florida.
Surely the first constitution
of a sovereign state should attract
as much attention and deserve as
much respect as butterflies
But, then, that part of Geor-
gia takes advantage of a lot of
things to attract attention and ex-


ploit to provide jobs and income
for the people who live there.
It would seem that it would
be to Port St. Joe's interest, as
well as that of the State of Flori-
da, for our citizenry to promote
and encourage more official state
attention toward our claim to
fame that first Constitution.

LEAVING CALLAWAY Satur-
day morning, we traveled through
the Franklin D. Roosevelt State
Park, which has a highway follow-
ing the highest ridge of Pine
Mountain, for 15 miles to Warm
Springs.
We've been to the mountains
and rode over and around them,
viewing some beautiful scenery,
but nothing was more pleasure-
able than the trip to Warm
Springs.
The highlight of the whole
weekend, to me, was the visit to
Franklin Roosevelt's Little White
House, at Warm Springs.


The home of the late Presi-
dent was nothing pretentious. It
was just a small five-room cot-
tage, with a beautiful view over a
valley from the back porch, but
the history which' is there; the
memorabilia from [the life of one
of our nation's most famous pres-
idents, makes a visit to the Little
White House a special stop for
anyone who has a sense of his-
tory and a memory of the late
president.
It sort of makes a president
seem like an ordinary man to
view the breakfast tray he used
the morning he died, from which
he ate a breakfast of oatmeal.
One hardly thinks of a president
eating oatmeal.
The unfinished portrait he
was posing for when the fatal
stroke struck him is still there in
the easel in its unfinished state.
A visit to the Little White
House should be a "must" stop
for anyone visiting in the north
Georgia area.

News That Is Not News
As most everyone in town knows by now, I took a week off last
week. If you are just now finding out, you probably didn't go to the
golf course a single time last week. I was there every day and I'm
glad to report that I had a wonderful time, even though I lost every
game.
Although the week off recharged' my physical and mental bat-
teries, I am, as of today faced with vacation "hangover". It's a mys-
tery to me why it hurts more to get up in the morning to go to work
than it does to meet the fellows at the golf course.
I'll bet that lady I read about whose house was swallowed by a
giant sink hole is still praying. It's my bet she had kept up-to-snuff
on her prayers before that night. It's hard to imagine what it would
be like to wake up and hear your house breaking apart and try to
get out and find the door jammed by earth. As you probably know
she was barely able to escape through the back door before her
house, silverware and all, was completely engulfed by Mother
* Earth. Had it been me in the house, I probably would have thought
it was a bad dream and woke up dead the next morning.
Mrs. Pauline Bennett's house was located in Frostproof, Flori-
da, but no one seems to know the exact location now. Well, -it
doesn't have a street address, I don't think.
Another item of interest in the news recently was the Underwa-
ter Music Festival that was held at Big Pine Key, Florida, last week.
The concert featured tunes specifically selected to enhance the un-
derwater experience, according to Bill Becker, new director for
WWUS, the Keys' radio station that sponsored the event.
The four-hour broadcast was transmitted underwater by special
* Lubell waterproof speakers hung from seven boats strategically po-
sitioned in thevcoral reef and was enjoyed by all, including the fish,
sharks, oysters and crabs.
Gee, I'm real sorry I missed that onel I'm going to make it a
point to be in Alaska next year when they have it.
I'm not sure where Hudson, Florida, is, but that's the town that
is known as the "Las Vegas East." Well, maybe Southeast. Anyway,
several retirees who live in Hudson were arrested last week when
police raided a penny-ante pinochle game at a beachside pavilion.
The article I read said the police outnumbered the gamblers so no
one escaped. One man tried to run but the police took his walker
away and wrote him up.
Those arrested could face a possible fine of up to $500 and 60
days ip' jail. If you think the possible penalty is a little stiff, you
don't know what those men were playing for. They were betting up
to 20 cents a game. Personally, I think they should change the law
and give them life. If they were caught betting over 20 cents a game
then the electric chair might be considered.
Robert Bunch, age 65, and one of those arrested, said, "In Flori-
da, you have dog racing, horse racing, cruise ship gambling, bingo
everywhere, a state lottery and they come here arresting people for
20 cents."
The truth is that Mr. Bunch was in the men's room when the
police rounded up the gamblers, but his outspoken attitude led me
: to believe he had left some money on the table.
The arrest was made by undercover policemen who had been
watching from a nearby picnic table. Gee whiz! I'm going to be care-
ful who I play golf with from now on.
It was a wonderful week, but I'm glad to be back at work. Now,
maybe I can get some rest.

When We Make A Mistake


... It's A Dilly!
We really couldn't say why
General Charles Homer's. name
came out in last week's issue of
The Star as "Gen. Charles Nor-
man".
But it did.
Our notes said "Homer",
our thoughts were, "Jack Hom-
er, sat in a corner" .and .
"Wonder if he is related to Bob
Homer, former Atlanta Brave
home run king?"
Still the General's name
came out in the paper as "Gen-
eral Norman," after being in the
working notes for story prepar-
ation as "General Homer" and
three different people who are
all good at finding errors, read-
ing the story, but missing the
BIG error ... that of the Gener-
al's name.'
Of course The Star sincere-.
ly regrets making the mistake.
It was certainly not intentions
and it was not from lack of ef-
fort to get it right. It was just
one of those glitches which
pops up in the most unusual
places in this business, every-
where from the Wall Street
Journal to the Podunk News. ,
The Star has already ap-
plied a liberal dose of the wet
noodle to our editorial backside
and' expressed our regret. Our
errors are there in living black
and white for the world to see.
All we can do is say we are sor-
ry and continue to try and head
off such boo-boos before they
happen.

Wewa. Methodists Welcome New Minister


13y Linda Whitfield
The United Methodist Church
of Wewahitchka would like to
introduce Bill and Helen Parsons,
formerly of Bayou La Batre, Ala-
bama, to the community. The
Parsons spent five years at Bayou
La Batre and before that they
were at various other churches in
Alabama for about 20 years.
Brother Bill was born in New
York City. He was one of four
children. His father was fortunate
during the Depression in that he
could do a lot of things. He was a
plumber, a carpenter, and an
electrician. His mother's job was
mainly rearing four children but
she also did a bit of "piece work"
in her home. Helen comes from
Tallahassee. She is an only child
and her mother still lives there.
Helen and Bill met at Eglin
Air Force Base. Helen had been
brought over by her mother to
work there as a stenographer. Bill
was a 1st Sergeant working in the
Meteorology Division, helping
launch rockets into the atmos-
phere. (FSU is now doing the
same thing 30 years later.) Any-
way, he saw Helen one day and
asked who she was. After a short
courtship, they were married in
1953.
Their marriage has been
blessed with six sons and lovely
daughters-in-law: Dr. William


J. C. Kirkland, left, is congratulated by Rick Lamberson,
manager of St. Joe Auto Parts NAPA store here in Port St.
Joe Monday morning. Kirkland was the winner of the fancy
go-cart shown in front of the two men, in a month-long ad-
vertising promotion by the local parts store. Kirkland said,
'7 probably won't be driving this machine very much, but I
have some grandchildren who will give it a real work-out in
,the months to come."

in Greenland, he finished semi-
nary. In 1963, he was called to
the ministry with his first church-
es being Mexico Beach, Highland
View and Overstreet.
Brother Parsons said, "I've
had a good life, and had a lot of
fun. I've spent 25 years in Ala-
bama and now it's time to be
back in Florida."
You are invited to stop by
and meet the Parsons, and better
still, visit the church. Besides
being a powerful Bible scholar,
Bill has a beautiful singing voice
and can play the organ, piano,
and chimes. You may also see

Two-Car Crash
Two cars crashed head-on

3:30., on Highway 71, approxi-

Howard Creek Road intersec-
tion.
Florida Highway Patrol still

his wife, of Indian Pass, were
driving north on the highway.
* An unidentified Wewahitchka
woman was alone in her vehicle
travelling south.
Apparently Dr. Weathing-
ton's car went across the cen-

proaching vehicle on the
passenger side. The Weathing-
ton vehicle ended up in the
ditch on the west side of the
highway and the other car spun
around in the road, coming to
rest on the west shoulder,
across the southbound lane.
Mrs. Weathington was extri-
cated from the vehicle in which
she was riding by South Gulf
County Rescue crews and taken
to the Hospital with a com-
pound fracture of the right leg.
The unidentified driver of
the second car was also taken
to the hospital for treatment of
cuts and bruises.

TOOTH FOOD


The first thing to teach
your children about preventive
tooth care is that good eating
habits are important. Foods
that keep the whole body
healthy will also keep teeth,
gums and jawbones in good
condition. Milk, cheese, meat,
eggs, vegetables, fruits, whole
grain breads and cereals are
excellent for healthy teeth and
gums.
If your child eats between
meals, remember that snacks
should be low in sugar. In-
between-meal treats such as
candy, cookies, ice cream,
sugared chewing gum and
sweet drinks may play havoc
with a child's teeth. Bacteria
which are normally present in
the mouth combine with sugar
to form acids acids which


attack tooth enamel. Eventual-
ly, it causes cavities.
When sweets are eaten
between meals there is more
apt to be a chance for cavities
to develop, since the child will
probably not brush right after
- before acids have a
chance to form.
Some toothworthy snacks
for children are: apples, orang-
es, bananas, plums, peaches,
fruit juices, milk and cheese.
The greater distance between
sweet junk foods and teeth,
the better.

Prepared as a public ser-
vice to promote better dental
health. From the office of:

Spaceport Launches Rocket to Gather Eclipse Info.


The Spaceport Florida Authority successful-
ly launched its first Viper suborbital rocket
Thursday, July 11, as part of the Solar Extend-
ed Corona research mission during the solar
eclipse. The launch was conducted in coopera-
tion with the Mexican Eclipse Commission at
approximately 12:05 p.m. during eclipse totali-
ty, near the village of Santiago Ixcuintla, Mexi-
co.
The launch vehicle carried a small imaging
radiometer payload which failed to transmit
useful data back to a receiver near the 'launch
site. An analysis team has been formed to iden-


tify the cause of the payload failure. An identi-
cal ground-based radiometer successfully gath-
ered valuable solar data which will be shared
by researchers from the Florida Institute of
Technology, the University of Mexico, and oth-
ers. The two sensors were developed by a team
of university researchers in Florida and Arizo-
na.

DEMONSTRATED ACCESS TO SPACE
'This first launch demonstrated our ability
to provide researchers with access to space un-
der an aggressive schedule," said Spaceport


Authority Executive Director Edward O'Connor.
"Having learned of the Solar Extended Corona
project in March of this year, we were able to
bring the mission from concept to launch in
only four months. While we are disappointed
that data was lost from what appears to have
been a technical malfunction in one of the pay-
loads, we look forward to our next launch with-
in the next few months from Florida."
The Spaceport Authority's suborbital
launch program provides launch services for
research experiments developed by Florida uni-
versities. The next launch will carry a meteoro-


logical payload for Florida State University. The
launch is tentatively scheduled for September,
pending final approval of necessary environ-
mental permits, from the Cape San Blas launch
site here in Gulf County.
The Spaceport Florida Authority is a public
corporation created in 1989 to stimulate the
development of Florida's space industry, in-
cluding research and education, and to estab-
lish a capability for low-cost access to space for
Florida researchers. For more information

Ellegood at (407) 868-6983.


National Hurricane Center Gives 72-Hour Warnings In Path of Hurricane


The National Hurricane Cen-
ter issues forecasts for the loca-
tion of hurricanes and the maxi-
mum winds for the upcoming 72
hours or three days.
...When a hurricane is within
72 hours of affecting any land
area, the National Hurricane Cen-
ter issues probabilities of the hur-
ricane affecting specific locations
of this land area.
...When the hurricane is with-
in 36 hours of a possible landfall
(or up to 48 hours if a holiday
* weekend), a hurricane watch will
be issued for the area considered
to be threatened by hurricane
conditions.
...When a hurricane is within


18 to 24 hours of landfall, a hur-
ricane warning will be issued for
the areas which could experience
hurricane conditions, hopefully
allowing for up to 12 hours of
daylight for evacuation. However,
for hurricanes which develop rap-
idly very close to the coast, this
amount of time may not always
be possible.
Errors in the forecasts of the
future location of the hurricane
increase with time which results
in the probabilities of a hurricane
affecting a given location being
much lower at 72 hours than at
24 hours. The important thing to
note as each successive advisory
is issued is how the probability at


your location is changing with
time, and how the probability at
your location is changing relative
to the locations on either side of
your location. The threat to your
location is obviously increasing if
the probability at your location
keeps getting higher as the hurri-
cane gets closer and/or the prob-
ability at your location keeps get-
ting high relative to the
probabilities at the locations on
either side of you.
Based upon studies of popu-
lation, highway access, and the
storm surge expected, some areas
of Florida require more time to
evacuate than the 18 to 24 hours
of hurricane warnings usually


given by the National Hurricane
Center. Please heed recommenda-
tions or orders to evacuate when


given by your local emergency
management officials, whether
hurricane warnings have been is-


sued or not. Do not base your
decision on past experience. To
do so could be deadly

On the Move to Deter Crime


Obituary I

Henry Blackshire
Henry Blackshire, 79, of Port
St. Joe, died July 11 at West Flor-
ida Regional Medical Center. He
was a native of Gadsden County
and had been a resident of Port
St. Joe for the past 20 years.
He is survived by two broth-
ers, Willie D. Blackshire of Eufau-
la, Alabama, and Hilton Blakely
of Pascagoula, Mississippi; one
sister, Sadie Donaldson of Wash-
ington, D.C.; two nephews, Willie
James Dawson and Charlie Daw-
son, both of Port St. Joe; and two
nieces, Aldonia Quinn of Port St.
Joe, and Carrie Duncan of Wash-
ington, D.C.
Funeral services were held
Wednesday at Thompson Temple
church of Port St. Joe with Rev.
Bobby Blackshire officiating. Bu-
rial followed in the family plot at
Forest Hill Cemetery of Port St.
Joe.
Arrangements were by Gil-
more Funeral Home.


Port St. Joe City Police keep
busy, according to a report Chief
Carl Richter made to the Kiwanis
Club Tuesday. "We're especially
busy around the full moon," the
Chief said, "When crime seems to
pick up the pace."
Richter said the local force
received 362 calls for their servic-
es during the 30 days of June,
averaging about a call every two
hours. "That call could be every-
thing from someone locking their
keys in the car to the arrest of a
crack dealer," Richter said.
"Crack arrests accounted for 17
of the 37 felony arrests we made
during June," he said. There were
eight misdemeanor arrests during
the month.
The local force had a crime
solved rate of 74%. "This com-
pares with a 15 to 20% solution
rate as a state average," the Chief
said.
There is a definite advantage
to operating a police department
in a small town, Richter pointed
out, saying that in a small town,
the officers know everyone and

their habits. "When a crime is
committed we usually know from
the method used to perform the
crime, who the perpetrator is.
Most of our crimes are caused by
the same people over and over
again."
The speaker said the local
department made three traffic
crime arrests in June. They also
wrote two tickets for traffic infrac-
tions and Issued four warnings.
The department's fleet of four
patrol cars travelled 7,367 miles
during June. "We like to keep our
cars moving," Richter said. "If
people see them and know they
are moving about, they are less
inclined to commit a crime."
The Police Chief said three of
his department's most numerous
complaints are for loud boom
boxes, abandoned or run-down
buildings or abandoned automo-
biles being used for unlawful pur-
poses, and an accumulation of
trash in certain places.
'We now have a law, recently
passed, which allows us to crack
down on the boom boxes. We're
concentrating on keeping people
out of deserted buildings and
cars and getting them removed

Americans Get


Americans are bombarded
with messages about conserva-
tion and recycling.
This media blitz is more
intense than the "buy bonds"
campaign of World War II
because it reaches into every
home with a radio, television or
newspaper subscription.
Ron Gaddie of Rialto, Califor-
nia offers a practical, inexpensive
way to get aboard the save-the-
earth bandwagon with the crea-
tion of the Ecology Box.
A former earthworm farmer
and now a conservation consul-
tant to agencies, governments
and individuals in the U.S. and
Asia, Gaddie preached recycling
and conservation 20 years before
it was a popular hue and cry.
"Everybody's talking, but few
are really doing much about
waste and alternative ways to dis-
pose of it. We're still hauling our
yard and household waste to
landfills," Gaddie lamented.
The Ecology Box exemplifies
simplicity, effectiveness and ease
as a viable alternative.
"Recycling by itself won't
work, especially with the average
Joe and Jane sending all their
garbage to the city or county
dump," said Gaddie. 'You can
reduce your garbage pickup by
60 percent or more with our Ecol-
ogy Box and composerr"
A nondescript 4x4-foot,
square box, 20 inches high, sits
in Gaddie's backyard. Looks, in
this case, are deceiving. The
small box can accommodate up
to 2,500 pounds of household
garbage. One family's waste liter-
ally becomes delectable delicacies
for the army of red earthworms


munching within, transforming
garbage into biodegradable ferti-
lizer. In that form, it enriches
yard top soil rather than nega-
tively impacting landfills running
out of room for community gar-
bage.
Gaddie built his box in 1976
with old redwood and a little
hardware, spending about $35.,
Those preferring new wood can
still expect to invest less than
$100.
The box is rodent proof at
and beneath ground level as well
as 95 percent insect and fly proof
when properly constructed and
managed. Residents needn't wor-
ry about the smell of garbage.
The only odor is similar to damp
soil.
It requires little space, fitting
easily in smaller yards. Some res-
idents make it an attractive addi-
tion to their yards by enclosing it
behind gazebo-like structures
and decorative shells.
Gaddie admitted he saw the
handwriting on the environmen-
tal wall more than 20 years ago
and tried to warn others.
"I began composting and
recycling trash and household
refuse in the late 1960s. I discov-
ered what a vital role worms can
play in recycling refuse and mak-
ing waste biodegradable," Gaddie
recalled. "I tied to educate munic-
ipal officials then of the pending
problems with growing refuse
piles."
Public officials more famil-
iar with crisis rather than long-
term planning rejected Gad-
die's predictions, claiming land-
fills would last another 40 years.
"Here we are 20 years later

Tips to Manage

Pests on Flowering

Or Fruiting Plants


By Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Director
This time of the year a lot of
calls come in about leaves that
appear as if they have a black
film on them, particularly the gar-
denia, vibarum and crape myrtle.
This condition is due to a fungus
that grows on sticky, sugary ma-
terials. One could place a piece of
bread out and a close relative of
this fungus would begin turning
the bread black. So why is it
growing on plants? Most of the
time it's because an insect, such
as a white fly or aphid is visiting
that plant and dropping sticky ex-
crements to the leaves below. We
call these deposits honeydew.
Sometimes the insect causing the
problem isn't even on the plant,
but it is feeding on the tree cano-
py above. When this happens, the
black film. will grow not only on
plants but picnic tables, roofs,
and cars. It can be quite a nui-
sance. Control is achieved only if
the insect creating the problem is
controlled. For many plants (ex-
cept gardenias which are burned
by it) the new insecticidal soaps
do a good job at both killing the
insects and helping loosen the
sooty mold coating. The various
summer oil sprays do the same
thing. Materials, such as diazin-
on, malathion and orthene, kill
white flies and aphids but do lit-
tle to loosen the sooty mold layer.
That will, with time, wear off as
the honeydew is consumed. In
the meantime, the sooty mold it-
self, other than cutting down on
some of the light reaching the leaf
and looking ugly, has minimal


Impact on the plant. Many gar-
deners do no spraying at all and
do not lose plants as result.
July marks the month out
main nemosis to peaches, plums
and nectarines (the peach tree
borer is laying its eggs on the
bark of these trees). The eggs will
soon hatch into a young caterpil-
lar that will begin eating its way
into the tree. Once Inside, it will
continue to develop until it's
ready to emerge and become an
adult moth next spring. Trees
heavily infested will bleed and
control against this pest is pre-
ventive spraying toward the end
of summer. Spray the trunk from
the ground up to three feet or so
with an insecticide labeled for
fruit trees. Lindene, Thiodan
(commonly sold as Thiogard 3),
and Dursban (with a tree label)
are the most effective of the mate-
rials available at local garden
shops, spray the first week in
July, August, and September to
achieve full season control.
If its leaves are starting to
curl and have spots all over them
that releases a powdery sub-
stance to the fingers if rubbed, fig
rust is the problem. This is very
common on our figs and can
cause complete defoliation just
before fall. This is not good be-
cause it can seriously weaken our
trees and set them up for more
winter injury should we have an
early cold spell. Unfortunately,
like most diseases, control is so
difficult (it could require repeated
sprayings throughout the sum-
mer whenever a new flush of


County
Extension
Director

leaves come on), that it is just
something we have to live with.
We'll see good and bad years for
fig rust. Being sure to plant the
fig where it gets full, morning
sun, and not watering the foliage
when irrigating will lower the inci-
dence of fig rust.
Homeowners who are trying
t8 grow bunch grapes may be
plagued with a disease known as
Anthracnose. This disease causes
fruit to be spotted and for leaves


and stems to develop dark spots.
Infected leaves quickly drop from
the vine and the vine becomes
weak. It is a disease mainly on
bunch grapes and unfortunately
its only control is regular spray-
ing. Most gardeners find they just
can't grow good bunch grapes
without spraying five or more
times during the growing season.
Spraying needs to be started in
April (when the plant is in full
bloom) and continue every 14
days until just before harvesting.
Fungicides that are used should
be alternated so the same prod-
uct is not repeatedly being ap-
plied. Among the labeled prod-
ucts for grapes are captain,
manzate, banlate and dithane
M22.
Muscadine grapes are much
more resistant to anthracnose
and can be grown with few, if any
sprays. Consider planting those
instead of bunch grapes. They are
better adapted to this area of the
state.
