Gulf Schools Open With Slight Increase In Students


Gulf County Schools opened their doors yesterday with some
2,148 students reporting for the first day of classes.
Port St. Joe had the largest school census of the three dis-
tricts in the county with 1,189 students signing in for classes.
The Port St. Joe district was the only district in the county to re-
flect an increase in student census over a year ago. Both High-
land View and Wewahitchka recorded a decrease in school popu-
lation.
The school district in Wewahitchka had a total of 804 stu-
dents as the first day of classes began. The third district, High-
land View, had 155 students on opening day.
The number of students reporting on the first day of school


was an increase of 33 over the previous year, but school offi-
cials say the enrollment usually grows as the schools get into
their first week of operation. For instance, 696 students have en-
rolled at Port St. Joe High School, but there were only 638 in at-
tendance on opening day Wednesday.
For the second year in a row, Gulf County schools are open-
ing earlier than most other districts in the area, but the early
start allows the schools to get in their required 180 days of
classroom study and still work in several breaks in the school
year. The system will have two days off Thanksgiving week, two
weeks at Christmas and a week around Easter, for their spring


break. The early start also allows the Gulf County system to
complete the first semester prior to the Christmas break.
The five separate schools in the Gulf County system reported
the following student attendance on the first day yesterday. Port
St. Joe High School had 638 present for an increase of 40 over
last year. Port St. Joe Elementary had 551 students on the first
day for an increase of six over the previous term. Highland View
Elementary had 155 students in class Wednesday, a decrease of
10 from the previousyear. Wewahitchka High School signed in
379 students yesterd an increase of one over a year ago. We-
wahitchka Elementa School reported 425 students enrolled
the first day, a decrease of two from a year ago.

17-Year-Old Hero Applauded


Jason Knight, 17-year-old son of Mr.
and Mrs. Ralph Knight of Seventh Street,
here in Port St. Joe, was given a hero's
acclamation Tuesday morning in the
Gulf County Commission meeting.
Jason, a senior at Port St. Joe High
School, was presented with a plaque by
County Commission chairman, Ed
Creamer and scrolls of appreciation for
his heroic efforts by Creamer and Port
St. Joe City Commissioner, Bill Wood.
Knight was lauded for his actions in a
house fire last Tuesday morning, which
claimed the life of Mrs. Alyce Slowe.
Knight broke into the smoke-filled home
and brought Mrs. Slowe outside, after de-
termining that she was inside the home
at 528 1/2 Eighth Street.
Mrs. Slowe, who died from smoke in-
halation, was lying on a couch inside the
burning room of the home. Investigators


theorized that she went to sleep while
smoking a cigarette, setting the couch
on fire,
Young Knight re-entered the home,
after removing Mrs. Slowe, and extricat-
ed an oxygen bottle from the burning
room. The bottle was used by the 76-
year-old Slowe, who suffered breathing
problems. Knight knew the bottle was a
potential explosive device in the room,
which was getting hotter by the minute,
and the fire department had not yet ar-
rived on the scene. Knight went back
into the heaviest portion of the fire to
remove the bottle before it could ex-
plode.
Knight's family and several members
of the Slowe family were present in the
audience at the meeting Tuesday to wit-
ness the presentation to Jason.

Building Permit Schedule Changing; Phone Bids Reviewed


There were no objections
from either the public or from the
County Commissioners at the
first public hearing'on a new up-
dated charge schedule 'for the
County Building Department
Tuesday morning, at the regular
meeting of the Board.
Attorney Bob Moore read the
* ordinance in full for the first time,
which outlines a few fee changes
made on a local level, but mainly
adopts the fee schedule of the
Standard Building Code for in-
spection and permit fees. The
County's fee schedule has never
been renovated since the building
inspection ordinance was adopted
several years ago.
The new ordinance stipulates
that a minimum charge of $50.00
will be made for any permit fee. A
flat fee of $25.00 will be assessed
for a permit to build an open
deck or for a "pole shed".
A new construction electrical
permit fee will be increased to
$50.00. Change-out of service or
a power pole fee will be $25.00.
Permit fees for docks, sea-
walls, boardwalks and decks,
which are part of a dock or sea-
wall, adjacent to St. Joseph Bay
will be $100. Swimming pool per-
mits will be $60.00. Mobile home
or modular home permits will be
$50.00. A reinspection fee will be
$25.00.
If any activity which re-
quires a building or inspection
fee is started or completed
without first obtaining the nec-
essary permit, it will result in a
double fee or permit charge be-
ing made.


The remainder of the fee and
permit schedules are published
in the Standard Building Code.

h


The code covers construction,
electrical, plumbing and mechan-
ical installations.


The new fee schedule has not
gone into effect yet. There is still
one more public reading of the or-


finance to be performed before
the ordinance can be officially
adopted. The Cormnission sched-

of the ordinance for the next reg-

Sheriff Harrison said his Deputies
continued to put pressure on the

cult.

Water War

Representatives from Florida, Georgia and Alabama are talk-
ing about how to divide up the waters of the Apalachicola River
in the future. Presumably they will arrive at a decision which is
agreeable to all three states and the City of Atlanta.
Some of the bloodiest fights ever generated in the old West
was over who got how much water out of the sparse streams
which flowed through the area. Even today, the San Juaquin
Valley is fighting a bitter battle to obtain more of the water out of
the Colorado River for Irrigation purposes; the City of San Fran-
cisco wants a larger share of the river water for drinking water
and others along the river are resisting their grasping hands. In
the meantime, the environmentalists are saying that reduced
water flow through the Grand Canyon is causing problems
there.
It is a fight, big scale, over the waters of the Colorado.
We can see such a fight generating over the waters of the
Chattahoochee-Flint-Apalachicola complex if cool heads do not
prevail.
Atlanta, that megapolis in north central Georgia, has a thirst
they feel only the waters of the Chattahoochee [which becomes
the Apalachicola when it gets to Florida] can cure. From the ex-
perience we have had with water supplies here in Port St. Joe,
we feel the desires of Atlanta for supplies out of the Chatta-
hoochee has more of an economic attraction than it has an avail-
ability factor. Surface water is cheaper to obtain and convert
into a useable potable supply than underground supplies.
No doubt Atlanta could do like the rest of us do to a certain
extent. They could augment their present supply with a well field
and they could be more conservative with the supply they have.
Treated waste water could be utilized for many uses now being
filled by "new" water.
To say Alabama and, especially, Florida, have as much right
to the -water flowing down the Chattahoochee-Flint-Apalachicola
system as Georgia and Atlanta should be understood without
having to point out the fact. It should surely be understood with-
out having to go to court to make the point.



Where Are the Dems?
When the fuzzy caterpillars grow extra heavy coats, it means
we're going to have a cold winter. When the rats begin trying to
get off a ship, it means it's going to sink. When the birds begin
to act excited and head for cover, it means a storm is coming.
When your checks start bouncing, it means your bank account
is out of money. When your joints ache, it means bad weather is
coming.
But, when a Rockefeller says he is pulling out of a presiden-
tial race, it means George Bush has a virtual lock on the presi-
dency for the next four years.
We're not sure it's a healthy sign, but the Democrats seem to
be having trouble finding someone who is willing to tackle Bush
in 1992. The heavyweight front-runners all seem to be backing
off. Rockefeller is just the first one to officially announce that he
is laying lowfor the next four years.
C If Rockefeller, or anyone else is going to tackle a president
pvho followed the expressed opinion'of'almost 90% of the people
of the nation in his handling of the Ifadis, he had best be getting
on with the job of doing it. It isn't all that long until the Presi-
dential Preference Primaries begin and whoever is to be on the
ballot next November must make a good showing in the first pri-
maries of the election season.
The only.possible Democratic candidate to make any positive
noise this far into the spring of the Presidential season, is Sena-
tor Gephardt.
A Rockefeller, who has a leaning toward a political life, is ex-
pected to run when the opportunity presents itself. In many
ways, they are like the Kennedys, but in other ways they are
considerably different. Jay Rockefeller has shown himself to be
willing to allow himself to be persuaded to be a candidate and it
seems almost unnatural for him to be announcing at this early
date that he will not be available.
The only thing which would surprise us more would be for
Senator Ted Kennedy to take the advice of several of the political
leaders of his state and resign from the Senate.
A fellow like Rockefeller has the money, the ambition and the
time to run for the Presidency. If he chooses not to, we can ex-
pect the 1992 campaign to be sort of a ho-hum cut and dried af-
fair, with the Democrats sending up kind of a sacrificial lamb
just to keep their name on everyone's mind for four years down
the road.


Hunker Down with Kes


Bubba and Earl "Got Around" Mr. Warren


'You know the school over at
Pelham burned flat down' to the
ground year before last."
'We couldn't be that lucky!"
'"What did they do with the
kids?"
"Nothing for over a week. No
school. Then they started meeting
at the volunteer fire hall."
'They were out of school for a
week......... how did that fire
start?"
"Lightning, but I'm telling
you, we couldn't be that lucky."
"Listen fellas," you could see
Ricky Gene's wheels a'turning,
"let's think about this. We can get
out of school a whole week and
all we've got to do is bum the
place down!"
You could tell by the talk it
was the middle of August. Sum-
mer was about gone. We'd had
our haircuts and just the Satur-
day before, Mom had taken us
into town for our new shoes. How
I hated August! As a youth it
marked the end of everything
good and the beginning of every-
thing bad.


I can tell you how bad it was
- %we looked forward to getuno
out for cotton picking. We'd go to
school for about three weeks.
then come September. the whole
school would shut down 'cause
the family needed the sons and
daughters at home to help get the
cotton in. And picking cotton was
terrible work. I think about it to-
day, some 30 years after the fact,
and my back aches and my knees
hurt and my fingers start to
bleed.
We ranked having to go to
school right up there with castor
oil and the bubonic plague.
"What do you think high
school is going to be like?" Bud-
dy, I reckon, wasn't going along
with Ricky Gene's idea to torch
the place.
"I dunno, but Leon says we
can't wear overalls. They are not
"in" at the big school." I was
proud that my older brother was
going to be a junior and knew all
there was to know about being in
high school. Of course we were
just moving into the seventh


grade. but it was all in the same
building we considered our-
~sehes high schoolers.
Why don t we just quit?'
Rickv Gene wasn't exactly Beta
Club material. 'Bubba and Earl
dropped out and it didn't hurt
them none."
Silence.
We pondered on that for a
while. Now, we weren't too smart.
But even with my limited think-
ing ability, I wasn't too sure that
Bubba and Earl were doing all
right. I didn't want to spend the
rest of my life sitting on a Harley-
Davidson out in the parking lot of
Frank's Dairy Bar. They looked
cool but they weren't going any-
where. And besides, I couldn't
wear a black leather jacket in the
middle of August. And my mother
would never let me get a tattoo!
'"They say Mr. Warren calls
seventh graders down to his office
and beats on'em ever so often
just for the fun of it."
"Are you serious!"
"I don't believe that. Leon
says that if you stay out of trou-

ble, you'll never see Mr. Warren.
Of course, he also says that if you
mess up Mr. Warren will be your
worst nightmare."
Hollis broke out in a cold
sweat. He was in some kind of
trouble everyday. I think he was
the main reason Miss Charlene
quit teaching before our fourth
grade year ended. He could get a
one horse parade off of main
street. "Guys, I'm with Ricky
Gene, let's burn the place down."
'What do they teach you in
high school?"
We all pondered on that for a
while. You know, I didn't have a
clue. I was worried about Mr.
Warren, who my teachers were

First Day of School Meant Putting Shoes on Feet Unshod for Three Months


TODAY, THE KIDS have
been back in the school class-
room for one whole day and start-
ed on their second one. It's still
the middle of the summer here in
the Panhandle of Florida, but
classes are underway.
School is quite a bit different
today than when I went to school
[or, when a great many of you
went to school]. The end of the
summer vacation is probably still
an unwelcome time of the year for
those of school age, just like it
was when I was a kid, but many
other things are the same.
One thing the coming of the
school year heralded when I was
a kid, which it doesn't anymore,
was the necessity to begin wear-
ing shoes again.
When school was out in
spring or early summer, the
shoes usually came off, never to
be donned again until the class-


room called. Occasionally we
wore them to Sunday School and
church, but mostly we even went
barefoot there too.
Going barefoot was one of the
pleasures of summertime which
was hard to change.
Wearing shoes for the first
few weeks of school was hard to
do, also, because by the time an
active boy went barefoot all sum-
mer long, the bottoms of his feet
were usually as tough or tougher
than the soles of a pair of shoes
and wearing the shoes was mis-
ery.

WHEN I WAS IN elementary
school, there was always an ad-
venture in the classroom. The
kids didn't carry switchblades, or
handguns, or clubs, or anything
like that.
If you wrote a dirty word on
the restroom wall, your chances
of being found out were better
than good, and there was always


a male teacher around to follow
you in the restroom to see that
you washed it off the wall.
Such a situation doesn't exist
today.
When I went to school, the
restroom was outside. There was
a brick building out at the back
edge of the school yard which
held the restroom. It wasn't a
"flush" affair, either. It was a deep
pit in the ground, which was0
treated with chemicals periodical-
ly.
Before school, at recess, at
noon and for a short time after.
school, all the boys would gather
in about a 60 foot square in front
of the restroom door and we'd
play marbles, spin tops, play
mumblety-peg, toss horseshoes,
play jump-or-down, broad jump,
jump rope, and several other
small games.
There was no formal play-
ground. We made our own.


IN CLASS, WE expressed
ourselves by getting Involved lii
the side acuvities in the class-
room. The teacher didn't have an
assistant, nor did she have any
trouble maintaining order in the
class. To talk back to a teacher
was just something a student
didn't even think about doing.
I remember that when I was
in the third, fourth and fifth
grades, I learned such things as
the names of the government
leaders in Europe who were try-
ing to prevent World War II from
starting at the time.
One of those years, we
learned-boys and girls, alike-
the proper way to set a table and
how to eat properly, using the
proper utensils and maintaining
decorum.
Having four other brothers at
home to compete for whatever
momma put on the table, I proba-
bly needed this instruction as
much as anything the teacher
could teach us.


We also learned how to polite-
ly say. "yes. ma am". no. ma'am".
1Ii 'ir". if it was a manj. For
some, it was an introduction to
these displays of simple courtesy.
Before the year was out, however,
we were all saying, "yes, ma'am",
etc., when we responded to oth-
ers.
I still do today, almost auto-
matically.
THIS YEAR, THE Gulf
County School Board is trying to
hire a person who is certified in
law enforcement, to serve as a se-
curity officer in the school.
When I was in elementary
school, principal Roy McKeown
stood in the hall, wearing his per-
petual scowl and slapping his
ever-present yardstick on his leg,
and that was more than enough
to keep order. When I was In high
school, Waddell Biggart roamed
the halls constantly, accomplish-
ing the same end result.
I remember one time, when I


was in the filth grade. Miss Ro-
mine had to leave the classroom
for a few minutes and she gave
us strict orders to maintain or-
der.
I didn't, and when Miss Ro-
mine returned, she found it out
in just a few minutes. She took
me in the coat closet, asked me to
pull up my overalls leg, and took
a common old 12-inch ruler and
smacked me on the bare calf
three or four times. It burned like
the dickens and was more than
enough to remind me to maintain
order the next time Miss Romine
left the room.
These tools for keeping order
sound pretty tame today, but
they worked then, and if the do-
gooders would only allow the
teachers to use thepe methods to-
day without crying, "child abuse",
there might be better control over
the student body.
Who knows, the schools just
might not need a security officer
with special police training.

There's not many items in the food world that I don't like and
enjoy eating, as many of you who have seen me can attest. I
come from a long line of "country food" eaters.
Like most people who like to eat and there are many of us
- I enjoy most the foods I was raised eating. Fried chicken or
pork chops, cornbread, peas, okra, turnip greens and/or mus-
tard greens, fresh tomatoes and squash "are a few foods that ap-
peal to me.
Lately, however, broiled seafood and chicken have become
common entrees because I'm afraid of dying at an early age and
won't be able to eat any more food. On rare occasions I enjoy a
prime rib eye steak, marinated for a few hours in soy sauce and
cooked over an open grill at home
At one point in my life during my early to mid-teens I
went crazy over sweets. Many times during my early high school
years, I would not go to the cafeteria for lunch, but would buy ice
cream and candy bars and wash them down with coke instead.
Yes, my face was covered with acne and I was starving before I
got home but I continued to eat them anyway.
It wasn't long, however, before I realized that ice cream and
candy bars didn't sustain me. I played several sports and many
times before practice was half over I had run out of gas, so I went
back to eating regular meals.
There's an art to enjoying good food, in my opinion. It's Im-
portant, I think, that you be hungry. If you eat when you're not
hungry, as I often do, then you are prone to get fat and outgrow
your clothes every few months. You will also have people talking
about you to no end. I buy a lot of clothes with elastic waist
bands and I know people talk about my weight, some of them to
my face. But, what the heck! Sticks and stones.......
But back to enjoying food. To really enjoy food, you should be
hungry. Over the past twenty-odd years I have mostly eaten
when I was hungry, which has been most of the time, especially
since I stopped smoking cigarettes over 10 years ago. I've found
that when I eat all I want of solid, good food that I don't have
room for desserts or crave sweets like I once did in high school.
Coconut cake, ice cream (vanilla, please), peach cobbler pie with
ice cream and fresh-baked pound cake with a glass of milk are a
few of my favorites when I do eat sweets.
For the most part I have tried to stay away from sweets be-
cause of my obsession and the health risk involved.
About three months ago my wife asked me, "Have you tried
one of those Snickers Ice Cream Bars?" At first I thought she was
kidding. "I've eaten a Snickers Candy Bar," I replied, "but I've
never heard of a Snickers Ice Cream Bar. What is it?" I asked.
"It's the most delicious thing I've ever eaten," she replied.
I knew she wouldn't rest until I tried one so I rushed to the
store and bought one. I waited until I was outside to taste it be-
cause if it tasted bad, I wanted to be somewhere I could spit it
out
Within seconds after the first bite, I was hooked! I had never
tasted anything quite that good. The taste of chocolate mixed
with fresh roasted peanuts and caramel and vanilla ice cream
sent me into an eating frenzy. I went back and bought two more.
I had never tasted anything quite that good before or since.
Now I buy them by the six-pack box and several boxes at a
time. I hide them at home but hiding space is limited because
they must be kept deep frozen. They disappear at an alarming
rate at home and at the store.
Just last week I ran out and rushed to the store to buy a box
or two. When I arrived at the ice cream box where they are
stocked, I found John Vaughn and his wife standing in front of
the box. John almost had tears in his eyes and when I inquired
what was wrong, he replied, "They're sold out"
They were indeed Rocky Motley was kind enough to run to
Panama City and pick up a few six packs to hold me over until
the Mars man ran this week, but I found out yesterday that
they're sold out again.
If you've never eaten one, don'tI They are dangerous to your
health because you can't just eat one.

for Citizens Federal Savings and
Loan Association, retiring in
1984. She had been a resident of
Dalkeith since 1969, and was a-
member of the Dalkeith Baptist
Church.

Johnson Replaces Lopez On


Gulf Coast Board of Trustees


Greg Johnson, president and
chief executive officer of. Citizens
Federal Savings Bank of Port St.
Joe, was selected by Governor
Lawton Chiles late last week to
serve on the Gulf Coast Commu-
nity College Board of trustees.
Johnson succeeds Raymond


Lopez, an appointee of former
Governor Bob Martinez, as a
Board Member from Gulf County.
Lopez is a resident of St. Joe
Beach.'
Johnson's appointment was
welcomed by Bill Cramer, Jr.,
chairman of the board for GCCC.


~;t.
'r "'k "'


"He will bring many years of expe-
rience in finance to the delibera-
tions of our board," Cramer said.
The Board Chairman said finan-
cial expertise was especially im-
portant at this particular time, as
the college faces a period of
growth and reductions in state
monetary contributions.
Before coming to Citizens
Federal, Johnson was a senior
vice president of Security Federal
Savings Bank in Panama City. He
was employed for 13 years as an
officer of First Federal Savings
and Loan Association, also of
Panama City, prior to his accept-'
ing the position with Security
Federal.
Johnson has been with Citi-
zens Federal Savings Bank for the
past four years.
He is the second appointment
from Port St. Joe to come out of
Governor Chiles' office in the past
week.

adult criminal systems", "Career
opportunities in law enforcement"
and "Drug education", in the local
high school.
In addition, the officer will
provide the presence of a law en-
forcement officer in the school en-
virons and will make himself
available at all times to talk with
or deal with students and/or par-
ents with problems of law en-
forcement or crime prevention.
The school made it plain the
officer would not be a disciplinari-
an. He is to work through the
school system in all matters and
coordinate his activities with the
principal and staff members con-
cerned. He must seek advice
through school channels to enact
any program-Tn the school.


To the Editor:
A convicted killer might serve
up to nine years in prison. Less
time, if a deal is made.
Our government officials have
finally acknowledged the need for
stiffer sentences regarding violent
crimes. I agree. However, I am
more concerned with saving lives.
Making the Brady Bill federal
law could help prevent someone
from being shot, crippled or mur-
dered. And waiting seven days to
obtain a gun, is a small inconven-
ience to ask of the public.
It will take several combined
efforts in an attempt to resolve
crime and violence in our society.
The Brady Bill should be one of
those efforts.
Sincerely,
Rosaline C. Rauschenberg
Blountstown, FL


The Board has plans fqr the
program short circuiting the
growing unruly behaviour of stu-
dents which has plagued schools
all over the nation, here in Port
\St Joe and Gulf County schools.

Fortress In Concert

at White City Baptist


"Fortress" will be ministering
in song to the White City Baptist
Church Sunday morning, August

The ministry of Fortress be-
gan in 1986 with Ken Hosford,
Kyle Peddle, Hugh Black, and
Russell Hosford of Hosford. The
group started singing as a quartet
with Ken playing the piano as
well as singing. In 1988 Fortress
recorded its first album entitled,
"Praise, Prayer, and Patience."
Thereafter, the group -began 'sing-.
0 ing with tracks from their album.
In August of 1990, after
much prayer, Fortress decided to
expand and add a live band. The

group added Frank Morrison
from Bristol on lead guitar,
George Roberts from Hosford on
drums, and Earnie Sumner, also
from Hosford, on rhythm guitar.
These additions allowed Ken to
return to the keyboard, while ten-
or singer Kyle Peddle began play-
ing the bass guitar. These seven
men presently form the group
known as Fortress.
The group's increasing popu-
larity stems both from its musical
ministry and the personal testi-
monies of its members. Fortress
is thankful to be called into this
ministry and strives to lift up
Christ in all things.

WHAT DO YOU DO FOR FUN?
SEVERAL years ago a Christian girl told me about an incident
with a young man who had been asking to date her.
He was not a member of the church and they just didn't have
anything in common. She had turned him down twice and now had
said "no" to an invitation to a rock concert.
The young man was exasperated. 'What do you do to have fun?
You don't drink, you don't dance, you don't attend rock concerts...
what do you do for fun?"
Her response was the message all Christians should give.
Tor fun I get up in the morning without feeling embarrassed,
ashamed and guilty about what I did the night before.
Today she is married to a fine Christian man. They have a little
girl and are building an outstanding Christian home.
She's having fun taking care of their child and keeping their
home. She eagerly awaits his return home from work.
She's having fun knowing that her husband wont stop at a bar
or be committing infidelity.
It's fun living with assurance that the home will be led by a spir-
itual leader who will guide each member toward heaven.
'IBC Newsletter
Don't think you cant have fun being a Christian. Make your de-
cision today to hear the call and obey from the heart that form of
doctrine which is able to save your soul.

Baby Loggerheads Hatching Out

And then there was life! Yest
Lifel That's just what took place
last Thursday evening, the 65th
day at about 7:45 p.m. The sand
dropped that meant activity.
About 10:00 p.m. lots of little
black sandy heads began to ap-


pear and like a sunburst from a
cloud 75-80 little hatchlings -
baby loggerhead turtles gushed
forth and headed toward the Gulf
by way of the natural light on the
water. At least, that's what was
supposed to have taken place.
Instead, they turned toward a
couple of condo lights, a bar's
light, and three lamps on the oth-
er side of the road at the old bank
site. The lights went out (except

ular meeting, Tuesday, August
27, at 7:00 p.m.
The ordinance is expected to
go into effect shortly after final
adoption.
SOLID WASTE
Commissioner Billy Traylor
wants to shift the expense of col-
lecting and disposing of solid
waste to the shoulders of the
user, rather than the County's ad
valorem tax payers.
Traylor said, at Tuesday's
meeting, '"We're getting close to
our limit of 10 mills. It's time to
stop shouldering the tax payer
with all these services we're now
providing free throughout the
county, and put the burden of
paying for them on the ones re-
ceiving the service," Traylor said.
His remarks were aimed pri-
marily at the increasing cost of
solid waste disposal, but he went
further to mention fire protection,
water systems, etc.
The Commissioner said he
had attended a seminar recently
in which a consulting firm gave
input to the fiscal problems being
faced by all small counties.
'When I told them we're paying
for our solid waste disposal with
ad valorem tax funds, he said,
That's the most unfair thing you
can do'," Traylor said.
He went on to ask the Com-
mission for permission to invite
the consultants to come speak to
the Gulf County Board about fi-
nancing alternatives in the near
future. The Board members
unanimously agreed to have Tray-
lor issue an invitation to the
same people he heard at his sem-
inar.
NEW PHONE SYSTEM
The County received four bids
for furnishing equipment and in-
stalling a new telephone system
for the Courthouse and the sever-
al offices housed in the building.
One bid was received which
would furnish only the equipment
for the system.
St. Joe Communications, of
Port St. Joe was the apparent low
bidder of the four offering to put
in the system. St. Joe had a base
bid of $10,552. The high bid was
apparently introduced by South-
ern Bell Marketing, which bid
$19,331.75. Two other bids were
received for $15,000 and
$16,000.
The County has budgeted
$16,000 for the project.
The new system will include
toll free lines between the Court-
house and Wewahitchka, to fur-
nish toll fee calling to every office.
All offices will use the same toll
free lines, rather than having a
private line of their own.
A Courthouse telephone com-
mittee will study the bids and
consider the several alternates
which were allowable in the speci-
fications, before a final decision is
made.
OTHER BUSINESS


-Agreed to allow the Wewa-
hitchka Volunteer Ambulance
Service to advertise for a semi-
automatic defibrillator to be used
by the service. The machine
would be used on directions from
Dr. Fred Epstein of Panama City,
who would also train the mem-
bers on its use. The machine
would also be purchased from
funds remaining in the current
budget of the volunteer service.
-Had projects director,
Ralph Rish explain the county
had been given permission from
DER to place two feet more of sol-
id waste on top of their Five
Points landfill, this giving the
County more time to develop an
additional 30 acres they have ad-
jacent to the present landfill.

for the. lamps) and the babies
were diverted via flashlights to-
ward the water where they em-
barked on their new life.
Two families and a local who
are residents there and who had
guarded the nest and about 10
Georgia and Alabama folks
helped us (the permitted folks)
out. Because of the outside lights,
some turtles could have been
lost, but thanks to these people of
whom we could not praise more,
all but one turtle survived the
trek to the Gulf. After that, we
don't know usually one or two
survive. The lost turtle was a vic-
tim of a sand crab (ghost crab).
Again we thank them for
their help. They had been in-
structed what not to do and what
to do just in case and they came
through. It was fascinating and
cooperative a great big team ef-
fort. We thank you again.
The loggerhead lays between
August and September and the
eggs have begun to hatch as the
of the first of August and will do
so until some time in October.
We have some 55 nests on
Gulf County beaches from the
"Point" to the Cape, to Indian
Pass and from St. Joe Beach to
the county line. This is the most
we have had since the early 60's
and we have had only one dead
turtle this year. Perhaps the use


of TED's is really working.
We're asking that if you drive
on the Cape, please be careful
and aware. The babies are only
about 2 1/2 to 3 inches long. If
you come across hatchlings going
to the water, stop and turn out
headlights so they will follow the
light on the water. Remember you
can not touch, but you can keep
them from harm --ghost crabs,
animals, etc. You may smooth
out a place or remove debris if
they can't crawl out or over it.
We're asking renters and
homeowners to turn off all lights
and lamps on your dwelling unit
until the nest has hatched.
If you are using flashlights or
lamps on the beaches and you
see baby turtles crawling toward
the water, turn them out so they.
will follow a natural path of light
(moonlight, starlight, waves'
crest) to the Gulf for this will be
where the survivors will hopefully
come back to in a couple of years
to nest and lay their eggs.
We are the Volunteer Turtle
Group who checks and sets the
nests and who along with Pallas
Gandy, our boss, thank you for
letting us know when and where
a crawl is located; for helping us
watch the nest and for helping us
care enough to get the loggerhead
hatchlings safely to the Gulf.
Thanks.

SShark Proposals Made by Marine FC


The Florida Marine Fisheries
Commission received public and
scientific testimony on sharks,
skates, and rays, and voted to
adopt the following management
objectives for Sharks in Florida:
-maintain fishing mortality at
a level sufficient to prevent re-
cruitment overfishing
-maintain species diversity in
a mixed species fishery
-maintain abundance and
size classes at levels suitable for
enjoyment of recreational and
tournament fisheries, and for aes-
thetic enjoyment (i.e., scuba div-
ing)
-minimize discard mortality
In order to achieve these ob-
jectives, the Commission voted to
develop rules to include the fol-
lowing provisions:
*establish a daily bag limit of
one Shark per person or two
Sharks per boat, whichever is
less, in state waters
*require 'that commercial
shark fishermen have a federal
permit to fish in state waters
*prohibit finningg" (removing
Shark fins and returning the re-
mainder of the carcass to the
sea); however, fins may be re-
moved from the Shark while at
sea, provided that the number of
fins in possession must be in a
proportion of at least one Shark
carcass for every five fins landed
*require that Sharks be re-
leased in a manner that will en-
sure maximum probability of sur-
vival sharks caught by hook
and line should be released by
cutting the line near the hook
without removing the fish from
the water
-prohibit Sharks caught by
recreational fishermen from being
transferred at sea and prohibit all
sale of Sharks caught by recrea-
tional fishermen
*prohibit all commercial and
recreational harvest of Sharks in
state water whenever federal wa-
ters close to the harvest of large
coastal Sharks
*prohibit the landing and mo-
lesting of Sawsharks and Saw-
fish in state waters, and declare
Sawfish a "protected species"
*prohibit the landing of spot-
ted eagle rays (known as leopard
rays) in state waters
The Commission also directed
staff to develop a separate man-
agement plan for skates and rays.

waters of Brevard through Nas-
sau counties including all of the
St. Johns River are also allowed
to use a legal otter trawl)
-require harvesters and deal-
ers of live bait shrimp to use live
wells on board vessels and during
transport and storage
-prohibit harvesters and
dealers of live bait shrimp to use
live wells on board vessels and
during transport and storage
-prohibit harvesters of live
bait shrimp from operating as a
food shrimp producer or recrea-
tional harvester on the same trip,

pounds of dead shrimp aboard
vessels at any time
-prohibit food shrimp pro-
ducers from possessing or land-
ing more than 47 heads on/70
heads off shrimp per pound, from
using brine boxes to separate
shrimp, and from operating as a
live bait shrimp producer, or a
recreational, harvester on the
same trip
-allow food shrimp produc-
ers to only use a roller frame
trawl with neither the upper or
lower horizontal beam greater
than 16 feet in length, vertical
bars shielding the trawl opening

such trawls to be towed by a sin-
gle vessel at any time; in addi-
tion, food shrimp producers in

net mesh using bar length in-
stead of stretched mesh. The
Commission intends to hold a fi-
nal public hearing on these pro-
posed rules during its October
meeting in Destin.
FISHING GEAR
The Commission reviewed its
draft rule to regulate fishing gear
in Florida, which includes the fol-
lowing provisions:
-Each net fished with, set, or
placed in the water shall be tend-
ed "tend" is defined as a per-
son fishing either within 300
yards of the net and using vessel
movement and noise to force fish
into the net, or within 50 yards of
the net if the vessel used is not in
constant motion or if the net is
fished from shore or from a struc-
ture attached to the shore
-Beginning January 1, 1995,
no person shall soak a net for
more than one hour, beginning
when the first mesh is placed in
the water and ending when the
first mesh is retrieved, with the
net being continuously and com-
pletely removed from the water af-
ter retrieval has begun
-Beginning January 1, 1995,
hook and line gear used in state
waters shall be tended "tend" is
defined as no more than one hour
shall elapse between the terminal
tackle of the hook and line gear
enters the water until retrieval
begins, with the line being contin-
uously and completely removed
from the water after retrieval has
begun F
-Beginning January 1, 1995,
no person shall use a gill or tram-
mel net with a mesh size smaller
than 3 inches stretched mesh
-The maximum mesh size
for fishing with seines is set at 2

require use of international
orange buoys (or another highly
visible color) with a diameter of at
least 12 inches at net ends, or re-
quire that end buoys be equipped
with high fliers displaying net sig-
nal flags (may be flown from boat
if one end of net is attached to
boat); ends of nets must be lit I/
2 hour after sunset to 1/2 hour
before sunrise
-Maximum length for all gill,
trammel, and seine nets 600
yards (two or more nets may not
be fastened in any manner to ex-
ceed this length while fishing)
-More than one net may be
in possession, provided that the
total length of all nets (regardless
of mesh size), not exceed 1,200
yards only one net may be
fished at a time
-Spotter airplanes may tar-
get only species allowed to be
harvested by purse seines in
state waters
-Intentional discard of mon-
ofilament line or net prohibited;
must be properly disposed of or
reported to authorities

containing any type of plastic
fishing gear have disposal con-
tainers, encourage the use of

request that the Department of
Natural Resources include these
recommendations in public edu-
cation
-Allow use of powerheads


(bangsticks) only for protection
-Longlines prohibited in
state waters
-Prohibit use of airboats for

west of the Executive Closure
area, within an area inside a line


running from Shell Point to Piney
Island to Porter Island
-Prohibit fishing from motor-
ized boats in Lake Avoca and Pip-
pin Lake
The Commission also voted to
include provisions in the rule to
prohibit the use of gill and tram-
mel nets by recreational fisher-
men and to allow the use of recre-
ational seines of 100 feet or less
in length, 4 feet or less in depth,
and a maximum mesh size of 3/8
inch. In addition, the Commis-
sion received public testimony on
numerous local laws regarding
fishing gear, and directed staff to
repeal, modify, or incorporate
these laws into the statewide rule
as appropriate, and to correct any
conflicts these laws may have
with rules of the Florida Game
and Fresh Water Fish Commis-
sion. The Commission intends to
receive further public comment
on this proposed rule before final
public hearing is held on the rule
in December.
BLACK MULLET
The Governor and Cabinet
voted to approve Commission
proposed rule amendments for
black mullet, which include
changing the daily bag limit for
recreational fishermen to 50 per
person or vessel, whichever is
less, and deleting the "restricted
species" provisions in the rule for
the Panhandle Region. These pro-
visions will take effect September
1, 1991.
The Commission has sched-
uled a final public hearing for

Senior Citizens Golf

Tourney A Big Success


The Gulf County Senior Citi-
zens sponsored the first annual
select shot golf tournament which
was open to all ages. It was a
huge success! Hats are off to the
52 players that entered the event
and despite the rain, all hung in
and finished their rounds.
The competition was really
evenly matched. There were two
teams tied for first place and were
still tied after several holes of a
playoff. With time running out,
the club professional, Len Bubba
Patrick, selected a winner by
comparing score cards.
The four top teams were:
First Place: Mike Willis, Carl
Willis, Jay Hammond and Dusty
Cottle


Second Place: Dave Tuplin,
Richard Miller, David Carl Gaskin
and Gannon Buzzett
Third Place: Buddy Renfro,
Kenny Wood, Dr. Bob King and
Steve Richardson
Fourth Place: Norton Arrant,
Perky White, Jason White and
Chuck Worley.
A delicious chicken dinner,
buffet style, was prepared by the
St Joseph Bay Country Club din-
ing room. Wendell Campbell,
Master of Ceremonies, kept all 45
people laughing. He really did a
great job. Bertha Stripling, Helen
Smith, Rose Mary McDonald and
Elizabeth Stokoe helped serve
food and greet the guests.

Are Glad to be Back!
After a long, hot summer, the

paper, glue, scissors, and a small
box. These do need updating from
time to time! Parents, we need
your help in helping get your
child to school on time. WES be-
gins at 7:55 a.m. It creates prob-

With the Heat Here)
Pam Sumner, ESE teacher,
her husband, children, in-laws,
and two friends recently flew to
Anchorage, Alaska and took a
seven-day cruise from Seward to
Vancouver, B.C. They especially
enjoyed rafting the Keystone Can-
yon in Valdez, panning'for gold in
Juneau, and canoeing in Ketchi-
con. The Sumners said the ice-
bergs, snowcapped mountains


and glaciers were spectacular.
(Since Pam is back at work, I take

The Gulf County School
Board met in special session
Monday morning, to appoint a
new football coach for Wewa-

Stanley, who was hired near
the end of the past school year,
had never coached a game for
the north Gulf County School,
when he resigned recently, cit-
ing personal reasons as the
cause for his leaving.
Former coach Buster

coaching a few years ago, say-

CLEANING OF BRACED TEETH


A dentist puts braces on a
child's teeth to straighten them
or correct dental handicaps. But
braces make teeth harder to
clean, can act as food traps and
thus increase the chance of
tooth decay. But this can easily
be overcome. One of the best
methods of cleaning debris from
braced teeth is the oral irrigator
- an electric device which di-
rects a pulsating stream of wa-
ter onto the teeth.
Dental researchers at Loyola
University tested this premise.
Braced youngsters were divided
into two equal groups. The first
brushed their teeth after each
meal, then used an oral irrigator
once a day. The second group
also brushed but followed with a

simple rinsing.
After nine weeks, group one
(the irrigators) showed an 80
percent reduction in total bacte-
ria. In contrast, the group of rins-
ers had only an insignificant
drop in bacterial count. The re-
sults indicate that if the irrigator
cleaning process is combined
with brushing, proper dies, and
frequent examinations, a child
can have straight teeth without
the penalty of additional cavi-
ties.

'"Who's Who"
Congratulations to Kristi Da-

the 25th annual Who's Who
Among American High School Stu-
dents. Only five percent of the
students form the nation's
22,000 high schools are given
this honor each year.
Kristi is a sophomore at Port
St. Joe High. She has a 3.8
gradepoint average. Kristi is a
junior-varsity cheerleader, gold
card club member, last year's
president of National Honor Soci-
ety, member of the Girls Ensem-

as well as reporting to the group
on other units in the area.
Officers for the new year are
Serena Hall, chairperson; Amalia

agencies to verify continued eligi-
bility.
VA has social security num-
bers for most of its 3.5 million
compensation and pension bene-
ficiaries. But computer matches
by the General Accounting Office
and VA's Office of Inspector Gen-
eral revealed that the missing in-
formation is blamed for a large
number of overpayments to other
beneficiaries who, for example,
may be receiving benefit pay-
ments from VA that should be off-
set against payments from other
federal agency.
VA Chief Benefits Director
DWayne Gray said, "This action
is necessary to ensure the integri-
ty of our benefits payment system
and those of other federal agen-
cies. The law does not require
that our beneficiaries have a so-
cial security number. If they do
not, they simply have to tell us,"
he added.
Requests for social security
numbers have been sent to long-
time recipients and those who
have payments sent directly to fi-

Tuesday, August 20: pizza,

nancial institutions. It is the lat-
ter group that is of concern to VA.
'We can't be certain that the
home address we have today is as
valid as it was when the benefici-
ary selected the electronic fund
deposit," said Gray.
VA benefits checks mailed to
homes of recipients included an
explanation of the requirement.
Since electronic deposits go to
banking institutions, the explana-
tion was mailed to the address of
record, provided by the benefici-
ary. Each year, thousands of sim-
ilar letters are returned by the
post office because of faulty ad-
dresses.
Beneficiaries have 60 days to
respond to the requests. Those
who fail to respond may face sus-
pension or termination of their
VA benefits. Beneficiaries whose
addresses have changed and do
not receive the request should
contact their nearest VA regional
office.

From Columbus in 1492 to Statehood in 1838

Oliver Taylor Gives Wide Mini Capsule History Lesson to Rotary Club


Did you ever wonder why the
Panhandle of Florida isn't a part
of Alabama? Of course you have,
and now there is an answer,; a
perfectly feasible answer.
Thursday of last week, retired
Methodist minister Oliver Taylor
of Beacon Hill, a history buff,
gave the Rotary Club a short syn-
opsis of Florida history from Co-
lumbus to the Constitutional
Convention, held here in old SLt.
Joseph.
The answer to the question
came near the end of Taylor's
talk, but in order to sooth any
anxieties, here Is the answer, at
the beginning of this narrative.
The Panhandle of Florida is
not now a portion of Alabama be-
cause at the time Alabama be-
came a state, Florida-including
the Panhandle-was owned by
the Spanish. The Americans had
started driving the Spanish from
the Gulf shores with the battle of
New Orleans, but had been suc-
cessful only as far as Mobile,
when Alabama became a state.
Columbus did sail the ocean
in 1492 and landed in the vicinity
of Florida. The rest of the famous
men of history were drawn to the
state witlftlndrs of gold and, as..
in the case of Ponce de Leon, a
storied fountain of youth.
Indians inhabited Florida
from one end to the other, and re-
sisted settlements by white men.
The first settlement was actually
started in 1528 in the Tampa
area, but the Indians killed all


but four of the settlers. Seven
years later, the four had made
their way to other Spanish settle-
ments in Mexico.
Florida may not have had
gold or a fountain of youth, Tay-
lor said, but it was strategic be-
cause there was gold in Mexico
and Peru and ships carrying the
bullion, had to sail around Flori-
da, which made control over the
peninsula a matter of strategic
importance.
Gold, of course, was the first
attraction to Florida, but when
explorers learned there was no
gold here, explorations died off
some.
With the French settling at


the mouth of the St. John's River;
the Spanish at St. Augustine and
the English in the Panhandle and
the Big Bend area, all three na-
tions controlled portions of the
Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic
shipping lanes in the early
1500's. Only the Spanish settle-
ment of St. Augustine still stands
today.
The French moved into north-
west Florida around 1717 with
the construction of Fort Creve-
cour, near St Joe Beach, but the
fort only lasted a little more than
two years before it was burned to
the ground. The push bylthe
Americans to control the Gulf
started with the Battle of New Or-


leans at about the same time.
The United States finally pur-
chased Florida from Spain in
1819, but statehood was denied
until the residents could come up
with a Constutition. This hap-
pened in 1838 here in old St. Jo-
seph, with 56 delegates attend-
ing from the territory between
Pensacola and St Augustine.
There were some 55,000 resi-
dents in the state at the time it fi-
nally became a state.
Guests of the club were Ron
Stevens of Elizabethtown, Ken-
tucky and Chuck and Linda Ben-
nett of Thomasville.

We're Proud of Gulf County's


BUS DRIVERS .


As Gulf County's children return to the
classroom this week, the bus drivers have the
important responsibility of transporting many of-
these students to and from school each day, to
various school functions and athletic events
throughout the year. We are proud of the
dedicated effort and zeal which these drivers
give to their jobs. It takes unique individuals to
deal with children on a daily basis. We're proud
of the job they do ... and we're proud of our
hometown.
