Ceremony Opens


White City Bridge

Ribbon Cutting Held Monday

Gulf County's Legislative delegation put its official seal of ap-
proval on the new highrise bridge across the Intracoastal Water-
way at White City Monday just before noon, officially cutting the
ceremonial ribbon which released traffic over the newly complet-
ed span.
Senator Vince Bruner of Fort Walton Beach, Representative
Robert Trammell and DOT Secretary Bill Lee of Chipley, were on
hand to do the honors before a small but enthusiastic audience.
Senator Bruner, Rep. Trammell, Gulf County Commission
chairman Ed Creamer, County Commissioner Al Ray and School
SSuperintendent Walter Wilder each made a few remarks prior to
Sthe ribbon cutting.
Senator Bruner said, 'We've got things going in Gulf County.
A grant to restore the old Courthouse, a new state prison and
two highrise bridges will mean a lot to the county."
Representative Trammell said, "I'm glad to see that we were
able to avoid several more years of delay in the Highland View
bridge project. Both these bridges will provide more dependable
traffic arteries for the people of south Gulf County."
County Commissioners Creamer and Ray each expressed the
.... thanks of the county to the Tallahassee delegation for being so
interested in the two projects and getting them accomplished.
Wilder said, "It's good to have representation in Tallahassee who
County Commissioner Al Ray, Chairman Ed Creamer, Senator Vince Bruner and Rep. Robert Trammell, cut ribbon. (See CEREMONY on Page 3)


City's Gas Supply Tripled

St. Joe Natural Gas Taps Cross Florida Main


Port St. Joe will be one of a
few Florida communities to re-
ceive a boost in its natural gas
supplies for the past 15 years, ac-
cording to Stuart Shoaf, president
of St. Joe Natural Gas.
The firm is in the midst of a
project to install an eight-inch
transmission line from the main
pipeline supply point northwest
of Overstreet to Port St. Joe,
which will triple the present sup-
ply of natural gas coming to the
city.
Shoaf said the increased sup-
ply is designed to serve the needs
of present industrial operations
in the City and to increase the
amount of gas available for com-
mercial and home sales. "For in-
stance," Shoaf said, "shortly after
we complete this project, we will
be moving into White City with
natural gas service."
CANAL CROSSING
Contractors putting in the
new line will be crossing the In-
tracoastal Canal at White City
this week end. In preparation for
the Installation of the crossing,
residents of the Sealy Drive area
have been notified traffic will be
closed to the street this week end.
According to Tom Knox, gen-
eral manager of the gas company,
the street closing will be neces-
sary in order to stretch the cross-
ing main out in one piece.
'The canal will be crossed
with a directional boring of a hole
under the waterway, similar to a


directionally bored oil well. After
the passage hole is drilled, the
one-piece line will be pulled
through."
Knox said the eight-inch
main is joining Florida Gas
-Transmission-..-.aupply-.,. system.;
northwest of Pleasant Rest Ceme-
tery, following the Pleasant Rest
Cemetery road to the Overstreet
Road, where it will cross and
come east along road number 50
to Highway 71, where it will turn
toward Port St. Joe, coming to an
end at St. Joe Natural Gas's sub-
station near Port St. Joe's Waste-
water Treatment Plant.


COMPLETION DATE
'We should have the trans-
mission portion of the project
completed by the first of the
year," Knox said. "We're 'running
23 miles of the eight-inch main."
Shoaf projected that the com-,
pany would expand its operations
into White City by the winter of
1992, or early 1993.
'This is a finn gas supply,"
Shoaf said. "It's the first to come
into the state in many years due
to lack of transmission volume.
We were one of the lucky ones
who received a part of the in-
creased supply," Shoaf said.


Sheriff Objects to Deep


Cuts In His
The Gulf County Commission
stood its ground against several
objections Tuesday afternoon,
and put its stamp of approval on
a 9.188 mill levy which will bring
in taxes to finance a budget of
$11,751,535.
The chief objection to the fi-
nal budget plan came from Sher-
iff Al Harrison who charged the
Board with failing to adequately
fund his department. "They prom-
ised me two new cars and two
new corrections officers and then
cut them both out of the budget,"
Harrison said.


Department
In defending his request be-
fore the Commission Tuesday
night, the Sheriff pointed out that
the Franklin County Sheriffs
budget was $1.5 million and
Gulfs was $950,000, "and Sheriff
Roddenberry is telling his board
he doesn't have enough," Harri-
son said.
Sheriff Harrison charged the
board had increased the Mosqui-
to Control budget by $89,000,
while they were slashing his.
Chairman Ed Creamer shot back
that the Board had actually cut
(See BUDGET on Page 3)


BILLY TRAYLOR
.. Commission Chairman

Traylor Chairs

Commission
The County Commission
named Billy Traylor as its chair-
man for the coming fiscal year,
which begins on October 1.
The appointment was made
at the regular meeting Tuesday
night.
Traylor, who is serving his
first full term on the Commission,
replaced Ed Creamer, who has
served as chairman for the past
year. Traylor represents District
Two, and lives north of Wewa-
hitchka on Highway 71.
Al Ray, of Port St. Joe, Com-
missioner of District Five, was
named vice-chairman at the
Board's organization.


On and Off Dog Fly

Spray Program Is Off

Pesky Biting Fly Control Spraying
Activities Shut Down by State
Florida's on again, off again dog fly spray program is
now officially off again, according to information re-
ceived this week by Sam Graves, operator of Gulf
County's Mosquito Control program. The shut down of
the spray program came at the height of the biting dog
fly season along the coast here in the Panhandle.
Earlier this year, the program was cut by Governor
Lawton Chiles as the State's budget was just beginning
to show the drastic short-fall which has come to pass.
Intervention by Panhandle lawmakers was successful in
getting the service reinstated for a period of time.
The only effective known means of dog fly control is
aerial spraying; a method too expensive for any single
county insect control operation.
The small flies, which suddenly appear along the
coast in late summer and early fall, are in full bloom at
this time. They are especially well-known for the sting-
ing, painful bites they inflict on persons and their tena-
cious habits of clinging to bare skin, biting away.
When the service was first curtailed, local interests
were successful in convincing the state budget handlers
that cutting off the program was counter productive,
since it would drive more tax paying tourists from Flori-
da beaches than curtailment would realize in tax money
saved.
Now local interests are mounting the battle once
more to have the spray program continue. Among those
responsible for making the decision are: Dr. Robert Wil-
liams, secretary, HRS, 1317 Winewood Blvd., Tallahas-
see, 32399-0700; Dr. Charles S. Mahan, Deputy Secre-
tary for Health, same address, and Dr. Richard J.
Hunter, Assistant Health Officer for Environmental
Health, at the same address.


11 First Levy to Pay for Emergency Call Service Will Appear On October Phone Bills


Telephone bills in Gulf County will reflect
the first installment of paying for a 911
emergency call system with the October 1
billing, according to Gulf County's 911 sys-
tem committee. The phone bill charges mark


the first step toward getting the service put
into action here in the county.
It may still be a couple of years before the
nation-wide distress number is put into use
here in the county, but telephone subscrib-


911 Committee Bill Kuyper, Lynda Thomas, Larry Wells and Priscilla Young
Bordelon, Dennis Geoghagan, Don Butler, are working out a plan for 911 emergen-
Cecil Donaldson, JoAnn Wilson, Andy cy net for Gulf County.


ers begin paying a 504 per month charge on
their monthly bills in October, to pay for the
system.
State law requires that the subscribers
pay for the system when it is put into opera-
tion. The monthly payments will be levied on
the phone bills for a maximum of 36 months,
or until enough money is paid in to cover the
cost of the system and its installation.
The telephone surcharge will be reduced
after the initial cost of the system is met. The
operational levy allows up to 254 per month
to be added to each telephone number to
cover the cost of operation and upkeep of the
system.
COST UNCERTAIN
The cost of the new service is still uncer-
tain, with quotations running from approxi-
mately $20,000 to approximately $100,000,
depending on the kind of service desired.
Prices on the hardware for the emergency
system have dropped drastically during the
past three years and may continue to come
down between now and the day Gulf County
has enough money in the bank to pay for
theirs.
Gulf County is expected to collect approx-
imately $30,000 a year with the 504 sur-
charge. The money collected is placed in an
escrow account, drawing interest until the
system is purchased.


Larry Wells, chairman of the committee
preparing the 911 plans and services to be
offered, says information has recently come
to light that there is grant money available
out there to help with these installations. "As
things stand now, it would be at least 18
months before the county could get any
grant money, even if it is available," Wells
said. 'This year's grant opening will be closed
before we could get up an application, so it
will be in the next year's letting before we
could even become eligible to receive state
money."
ENHANCED 911
At the present time, the Gulf County
committee is opting for the enhanced 911.
This type system has an automatic location
file built in, so a person can call in with an
emergency and not even say a word. The sys-
tem would locate the number called from,
the address and the name of the person liv-
ing there, listing any data which might cause
special problems, such as a heart patient, in-
capacitated resident, elderly, etc.
This system, of course, costs a little more
than a basic 911 system, but It would better
serve the people of the county,
Whichever system the committee choos-
es, it must be certified by the State of Flori-
da, before purchase and after installation.

Balancing Act
Everyone from the local fire district to the state house in Tal-
lahassee is pulling out his/her hair trying to figure out how to
make their budgets balance. To date, there seems to be only one
solution in sight in most instances; and that solution seems to
be to raise taxes even more.
If there isn't enough money to finance every program we have
or hope to have, just hike the tax rate and collect in a few more
dollars.
We have set in the seat on occasion where these decisions
are made, to make the money and the program financing come
out even. It's true that something has to give, but It Isn't neces-
sarily true that It's the taxpayer who must be the one to give,
and give, and give.
This little truism seems to have escaped the attention of
some of those who must make these financial decisions. We
make this observation because we don't see much doing without
by any of the government programs or activities within our view.
If anything, it would seem that we are adopting more and
more tax paid programs, whether by design or by edict from
some government agency higher up the chain of command from
the one which must do the paying. That way, one level of govern-
ment can claim to provide more services without having the stig-
ma of levying the taxes to pay for it.
A few years ago, our state and national government had so
much money to spend, they couldn't get it all spent, so they
came up with a revenue sharing plan. There was no thought of
just cutting taxes by the amount to be shared. Whoever heard of
a cancelled tax?
Many small communities began to live in a style beyond their
means to pay for. We built buildings, introduced social pro-
grams, purchased machinery and vehicles, hired people and just
generally set our sails toward equipping utopia for the voting
public to enjoy and remember at election time.
As one of Port St. Joe's more esteemed city commissioners of
the past said, In warning to the local commission, "Be careful
how you accept and use this so-called 'gift'. Our local tax payers
must pay the freight to keep up the buildings, maintain and re-
place the vehicles and pay the extra people when Washington
and Tallahassee realize they can't afford this type of largess."
Tom Coldewey was Just as right as rain when he made that
statement. Now, we have expensive programs we can't turn
loose, but we don't have the money to continue them. The City of
Port St. Joe pretty much heeded Coldewey's advice and has re-
mained substantially financially sound. Others did not either
hear or heed this advice and are knee deep in red ink as a re-
sult, expecting us common everyday variety taxpayers to ball
them out.
Enough is enough!


Where Do You Cut?
If you raised up in an exhultant huzzah in support of the
above words, let us go further and say that cutting isn't always
an easy thing to do.
Our nation's automobile plants, telephone companies, com-
puter manufacturers, aircraft factories and even thearmed forc-
es are cutting back on manpower in order to cut costs. When
"you Cut out a person's job-his way of feeding his family-you
have taken one of the more traumatic moves a person can take.
Cutting manpower is an extremely hard thing to do, both for
the one who must do the cutting as well as the one cut.
Our parents used to say, 'This is going to hurt me as much
or more than you," when they would get into the chore of giving
us the whipping we deserved.
Here in Port St. Joe, we are just beginning a very much-
needed program of making repairs to 23 homes belonging to
poor and elderly people in the City. Could you cut out such a
program? We couldn't. If anybody in the world needs for us to go
that extra mile in providing for their needs, it is our elderly poor.
Most of them find themselves helpless in such a situation as
needing to make repairs or renovations to their homes.
But, it is programs similar to this one which has ballooned
our government budgets beyond the ability of our tax income to
cope with them.
The schools are having to cut back in their operations be-
cause of a cash crunch. Gulf County Schools are expecting up to
an additional 3% cut in state funds in the budget just started.
The papers the other day said a 2 1/2% cut is being prepared,
so Gulf County's fears are being realized. If you are a lawmaker
do you seek additional revenue sources, or cut curriculum?
It isn't an easy decision to make, but the current situation al-
most surely demands that unrelenting and drastic tightening-up
measures be instituted Immediately before taking another grab
at the taxpayer's pocket.


Hunker Down with Kes



Is America Clearing Its Throat?


Kesley
I KColbert
Saddam Hussein reminds me
of that world famous cake my
mother bakes every year around
Christmas time there's no
meat to it, Just mostly fruits and
nuts. His latest "strategic" move
is to detain, hold, mix-up, call
names and/or otherwise hinder
the U.N. team from inspecting
and gathering information relat-
ing to nuclear plants and capabil-
ities in Iraq. Hussein went so far
as to say that the American in
charge of the team. is spying on
Iraq. I hope he is that's what I
thought the world sent the U.N.
inspection team in there to do. I
also think it is what Hussein him-
self agreed to as part of the cease
fire that got the American troops
out of Iraq. I believe, in regard to
enemy troops, Hussy adheres to


the old adage. "Out of sight, out
of mind."
George Bush, speaking from
the rim of the Grand Canyon,
holds his hands about six inches
apart, moves them slightly up
and down for emphasis, looks
right into the camera at Saddam
Hussein and says, "Not going to
do it!"
The U.S. and the U.N. are de-
termined that Hussein will honor
the resolutions he agreed to as
part of the cease fire agreement-
We are now in the process of
sending troops back to Saudi Ara-
bia. Iraq's ambassador to the
United Nations, Abdul Amir Al-
something or other said that Iraq
will not "roll over because of
American threats."
Threats. Threats
Listen, one of the first things
you have to do for survival when
you're growing up is to discern
the difference between a threat
and a cold hard fact of life. You
know what I mean?
On school nights mom liked


to get us In bed early. She'd pull
up our cover, kiss us, turn off the
light and say, "Get your rest boys
so you'll be fresh and ready for
school tomorrow."
I wouldn't lay in the darkness
longer than a minute or so before
Leon bombed me with his pillow.
I'd grab it and throw it back at
him, then I'd take my pillow and
whack David Mark with it The
fight was on. Mom would stick
her head in the door, "Boys,
that's enough."
Silence. We'd listen 'til we fig-
ured she was back in the kitchen.
David would swing off the top
bunk and kamikaze Leon. They'd
both attack me. It was every man
for himself. "Boys, if you don't
stop I'm going to have to come
back in there. You know what
that means."
'Yes, ma'am."
'Yes, ma'am."
'Yes, ma'am."
We tried to be a little quieter,
but the fight went on. Mom was
threatening us. If she did come


back we'd give her our best llitle
boys' look. We'd hang our heads.
Innocent like. We'd hug her neck.
Well, you know how mothers are.
As the fight heated back up
dad would come to the door and
kind'a clear his throat. We froze.
Nobody moved I didn't dare
breathe. I prayed that David
wouldn't cough. Leon had the bed
with the squeaky spring! Oh
Leon, please, don't move now. I
went to sleep in whatever position
I happened to be in. No problem.
You see, dad wasn't prone to
giving out threats. His throat
clearing was a prelude to a cold
hard fact of life. If we made an-
other sound, any kind of sound,
he would have been in there
quicker than you could'a said
Jack Sprat. And he would have
inflicted some serious bodily
damage.
Survival. Listen, if it's impor-
tant to you, you'd better be able
to tell the difference between a

Your Fee At Work

It takes a heap of old tires to make a heap of chopped up
tires. Actually, Gulf County had a professional tire shredder
chopping up what turned out to be about 250 tons of old
worn-out tires at the Five Points Landfill early this week. The
shredding work is being paid for mostly by a grant received
from the state of Florida financed by the $1.00 surcharge
made on each tire purchased for disposal purposes. The
mountains of chopped up tires will either be sold to industry
for fuel or buried in the county's industrial landfill


How Can One Resist A Grandson's Request In Such An Important Matter?


WHEN A GRANDSON sidles
up to you, grabs you by the arm,
looks up at your face and takes
on a pleading look to say, "Pa-
paw, would you take me to see
the Atlanta Braves play base-
ball?" what is one to do?
Add to this soulful plea the
fact you were dying to go see at
least one game of the Braves-
Dodgers series yourself, and one
gets down on his knees and
wraps that young man in his
arms and offers his profuse
thanks for providing the perfect
excuse for indulging himself.
All of this happened back in
mid-August, so I gathered up
some of the grandsons, to add
fuel to the "reason" for my having
to go to Atlanta last week end.
The first thing I did was call
one of my brothers in Atlanta and
say, "Brother, how about seeing if
you can get me some good tickets
to the Atlanta Braves-Dodgers
game on Saturday, September 14.
I'll need at least five of them."


IT WASN'T TWO days before
he called back to advise me the
only tickets left were in the upper
deck in the outfield. Imagine that,
the game is still a month away
and the only tickets left were in
the upper deck in the outfield-to
all three games
"Get 'em for me." I said.
'We're coming to that Saturday
game, just as soon as one of the
grandsons gets through playing
football here Friday night, the
13th."
You know the story. The
game time was changed from an
evening game to an afternoon
game about two weeks before it


was played, so the game could be
put on national TV.
We got up at 5:00 Saturday
morning, loaded up three grand-
sons and one son-in-law, and
took off.
There was 15-year-old Eric,
14-year-old Wes and 5-year-old
A.J., along with A.J.'s dad, David.
A.J., of course, was the rea-
son this trek to Atlanta started in
the first place.
WE HAD TO STOP in Blake-
ley, Georgia, at about 8:30, just
as those grandsons were waking
up from their morning nap. They
had gone to sleep about half way


to White City and were dead to
the world until we got to Blakeley.
'We're hungry," said Eric.
"Let's stop for a drink and a
snack." I was to hear that state-
ment several times between here
and Atlanta and back. I mean
SEVERAL times.
That "snack" turned out to be
four biscuits and gravy, a glass of
orange juice and a fountain coke,
plus a side order of sausage. Wes
ate more sparingly. He just had
two sausage and biscuits and
some mysterious substance I
have been unable to identify as
yet, plus the obligatory glass of
orange juice and a fountain Coke.
That was to do them for two
hours, until we had to stop for
another "snack" about LaGrange,
Georgia.
In Atlanta. an hour later,
they wrapped around dinner at a
Shoney's restaurant If we hadn't
made it to Atlanta when we did, I
believe they would have shriveled
up and died of starvation.


Dinner consisted of two ham-
burgers, an order of french fries,
a huge "make-it-yourself" straw-
berry shortcake and a large cold
drink, plus a re-fill or two.
I had forgotten how 15-year-
old boys can eat.
AFTER THE RAIN delay at
the packed stadium, it got hot.
Very hot! Extremely hot!
All of that heat called for re-
peated visits to the concession'
stand for more cold drinks. The
drinks were nearly a quart in size
and cost $1.75. They cost $1.75
when you could find a vendor
who had some quarters in his
pocket for change. Otherwise,
they cost $2.00, because, "I have
just ran out of quarters to make
change with."
In 105 degree heat, you'll pay
the $2.00 rather than wait for the
vendor to go for change.
Peanuts, hot dogs and quart-
size cold drinks maintained life
among the teenagers while the


ball game was going on, and pro-
vided the energy for a non-stop
waving of the red tomahawks
they provided 40,000 of us fans
with as we entered the stadium.
Those who came after the 40,000
were given out, just had to do
without
There were quite a few who
had to do without
AFTER THE GAME, at about;
9:30, we wound up back at the:
motel and supper. The restaurant
had a seafood buffet going and we
sat down, along with about a doz-
en of my family who live up in At-
lanta, and turned those kids
loose on that buffet
Both those older boys went
back and filled their plates sever-
al times. You would think they
had never eaten a piece of fish be-
fore. I have since heard they have
discontinued their Saturday night
seafood buffet, as a losing cause,
after our visit there.
But, we enjoyed it

A New Pair of Shoes
"Do you remember when a new pair of shoes squeaked when
you walked in them?" the preacher said last Sunday at the start
of his sermon. 'Well," he continued, "I don't think new shoes
squeak when you first wear them anymore, do they?"
No, they don't, preacher, and the reason they don't is be-
cause they ain't made with the same care they once were, nor are
they made out of the same quality material that was used a few
years ago. Shoes cost about 10 times more than they did when I
was a kid, but they only last a fraction of the time.
New shoes were a problem to me when I was a kid. I can't re-
member a new pair of shoes that didn't hurt my feet. The shoe
salesman would measure my foot usually the smallest one -
get the shoes my mother had selected, jam my foot into them, tell
my mother how good they looked and I would squeak, squeak my
way home in them.
By the time the new shoes were "broke in" good, it was time
to buy a new pair and the process started over again. I kept a set
of blisters on my heels and little toes.
I've owned some different shoes in my life. I've had new
shoes, used shoes (called hand-me-downs in the South), tennis
shoes, boots, loafers, and a variety of others.
God bless the person who invented tennis shoes. I've always
loved to wear tennis shoes because new ones never hurt my feet.
When I was young I didn't get a new pair often so I would wear
them until there wasn't anything but soles and shoestrings.
Used shoes were usually comfortable, too. My older brother
gave me a used pair of white "buckskin" shoes when I was in
high school and, although they were "used", they looked like new
* to me. Do any of you remember the white-buckskin shoe era? .
They were white on top, of course, and had a red rubbery bottom.
And although they were heavy compared to tennis shoes, they
were comfortable and almost impossible to wear out. And they
looked good with almost anything. Pat Boone wore them with a
coat and tie.
From the time my oldest brother came home from WW II, I've
wanted a pair of army boots. I mean real, honest-to-goodness,
army boots; the kind John Wayne wore in all those army movies.
I was impressed with the fact that they didn't leak and you could
walk through mud puddles and not get your socks wet. I was
also told that a snake couldn't bite through them and that gave
me a measure of security when I dreamed about owning a pair.
To this day I've never owned a pair and at this point I don't think
I will because my "mud puddle" days are over and I'm not going
to be doing that much camping in the wilderness.
I now own several pairs of dress shoes, but only one pair that
I wear. They are "loafers" and were made by Johnston-Murphy
and they are comfortable, good looking shoes. I don't wear them
often and I hope they last me the rest of my life.
Recently I purchased a new pair of tennis shoes and a new
pair of work boots. I hope they last me a lifetime, too. They cost
enough that they should. The tennis shoes might, but the work
boots won't make it two years.
So far, preacher, neither pair squeak when I walk, thank
goodness!

the county had increased Mosqui-

they cut the $70,000, leaving a
$89,000 increase over last year.
Creamer, in defending the
Board's move in cutting the Sher-
iffs tentative budget said, "We
had some unusual expenses last
year which left us strapped for
cash. We had a $185,000 de-
crease in state money, a $65,000
decrease in gas taxes, $245,000
less carry forward than anticipat-
ed. Most of our spare cash was
taken up by unexpected expendi-
tures such as a roof for the court-
house, increased indigent medical
expenses, unexpected litigation,
etc."
DO WHAT I HAVE TO
Sheriff Harrison said he had
eight cars operating with over
100,000 miles each. "I've got one
car with 150,000 miles on it. We
have only car with less than
50,000 miles on it, and it was
purchased with grant money."
The Sheriff says he doesn't
want to appeal his budget needs
to the State of Florida, but said,
"I'm going to do what I have to do
in order to keep my department
functioning effectively."


Bridge Is Newest of Four Types of Canal Crossings


By David B. Maddox
As I drove across the new bridge at White
City yesterday, my thoughts rambled back to
my early childhood, recalling scenes of crossing
the canal and traveling the road to Wewa "in
the olden days." As I remember, there was a
small barge just large enough to accommodate
two cars and was pulled across the canal by
hand. The ferry was operated by Mam and Pap
Atkins who lived in a small house nearby.
Crossing the canal was usually uneventful
but on one occasion our local dentist, Dr.
Jones, managed to create some excitement. His
car was the second car to board the ferry this
particular day. As he descended the ramp to
the barge, his brakes failed causing him to
bump the first car and the occupants into the
canal. Fortunately the canal was, neither as
deep nor wide as the present one and they es-
caped without any injuries, however Mrs. Eva
Morton lost her glasses. They were retrieved
later by a gentleman using a cast net.


Traveling that road to Wewa was quite an
undertaking and only the hale and hardy at-
tempted to drive it during the rainy season.
The road bed was being built up for paving and
since there were no paved roads in the county,
everyone was looking forward to having a paved
road with more than casual interest. During
this time, Mr. Ben Dickens was in charge of a
convict camp that was doing the road work. On
several occasions these men rescued our Model
T out of the mud bog by literally picking it up
and carrying it out or pulling it out with oxen.
Once we were through the boggy areas, the
next hazard was near Cypress Creek. Mr. Bob
Whitfleld lived by the road just south of the
creek and all of his cows and goats bedded
down on the road for the night. A careful driver
could execute the course without a collision
due to the limited speed of the Model T, but it
was a hair-raising experience at night with
cows and goats bouncing in every direction.
Later, Mr. Jim Sealey was bridge tender
when a tremendous improvement was made in


the crossing facility. A larger barge that
spanned the entire width of the canal was in-
stalled with a pivot on one end to allow the
barge to swing open for boats to pass through.
This was an adequate arrangement until high-
way and waterborne traffic increased, making
it necessary to replace the obsolete system with
a lift bridge to expedite traffic both ways.
Hence, the F. Elgin Bayless bridge was con-
structed in 1947 and named for the Superin-
tendent of the State Road Department His
wife, Gladys, a native of Port St. Joe, was the
daughter of Tomn and Nora Maddox Howard.
Mr. Howard was the first Mayor of Port St. Joe.
As I reflect on the four means to cross the
canal in my lifetime, I also ponder the future,
realizing this new bridge won't last forever.
What will its replacement be like and what
kind of vehicles will my great, great grandchil-
dren cross it on? Perhaps by then everyone will
have some form of a flying machine and won't
need a bridge.


County May Have Been Fraud Victim


Tuesday's County Commis-
sion meeting came directly after
the final budget hearing which,
apparently, took the steam out of
the Commissioners, causing the
regular meeting to be sort of lack-
luster.
Handling several small, but


To the Editor:
In your article September 19,
1991, "City Gives Go Ahead On
Its Paving Work," you stated that
C.W. Roberts' firm had been us-
ing S-3 type asphalt in Gulf
County. You are wrong and you
know it. C.W. Roberts is using a
Type 3 asphalt not a S-3 asphalt.
The Type 3 asphalt is a sand-
based asphalt with no rock, the
S-3 has the rock for more stabili-
ty.
Yes, I filed an objection with
the City of Port St. Joe using
Type 3 asphalt because back in
1977 the County Commission
borrowed 2.2 million dollars to
pave roads in Gulf County. That
loan will not be paid back until
1995. The roads deteriorated be-
fore the 2.2 million dollars was
paid back, so the County Com-
mission back in 1989 borrowed
3.2 million dollars to repair dete-
riorating roads in Gulf County.
This 3.2 million dollars will be
paid back in the year 2009. The
taxpayers of Gulf County demand
that the roads we pave and resur-
face will last until the year 2009.
Yes, I will hold out for a higher
grade of asphalt, even though it
means fewer streets would be
paved.
The City Commission has ne-
gotiated with C.W. Roberts' firm
to pave the same amount of
streets with a higher grade of as-
phalt for the same amount of
money. Thanks to the City Fa-
thers..., a job well done.
Sincerely,
Nathan Peters, Jr.

[Ed Note--Mr. Peters, I hate
to point this out to you, but you
are the one who's wrong here. I
was just reporting what went on
at the meeting, which continually
referred to "S-3" asphalt, not
"Type 3", but since you have ex-
panded that subject, let's get it
straight.
According to two testing la-
boratories, an engineering firm
and Florida DOT engineers, Type
Three and S-3 asphalt have ex-
actly the same recipe. The differ-
ence is in the preparation and the
application. The load-bearing ca-
pacities make up the difference in

GULF COUNTY has possibly
been the victim of fraud they
knew nothing about. According to
Administrative Assistant, Larry
Wells, officials in the firm who re-


grade. The Type Three must ac-
cept loads of 500 to 1,000
pounds per square inch. S-3 as-
phalt has load bearing require-
ments of 1,500 pounds and up.
Every test boring of Gulf
*County's current paving project,
with the exception of two, tested
over the S-3 requirements. These
two were barely under S-3 and as
much as three times the require-
ment for Type 3.
We said the paver has given
Gulf County S-3 asphalt when
his contract called for only Type
3. The records and testing labora-
tory results bear out our state-
ment. According to those who
know something about asphalt,
you are the one who is wrong, Mr.
Peters; not me. And, according to
the records available to your very
own Board, you should know it.]

some of their employees have

Neither the firm nor the Com-

one of the fraud victims and no-

the towers to see. The firm was
notified the County would be on
the alert for future problems with
the towers.

Gulf County coordinator Guy
Gammill described the effort as
successful 'beyond my wildest

Mr. Gammill stated that the
number of participants was five
times larger this year than last
This increase was largely due to
over 100 participants from the
marine biology class and Stu-

Barbara Eells and Winston Wells.
Members of the Health Services

this effort. They include Marilyn

Lovett that four to five tons of

from about 35 miles of shoreline

to see that all state and federal
government guidelines are met in

WHITE CITY'S water system
is a step nearer reality, as Pro-
jects Officer Ralph Rish reported
a loan with Farmers Home Ad-
ministration will apparently be
approved. "It isn't final, yet," Rish
said, "but correspondence with
the agency leads us to believe
that barring any unusual circum-
stances it will be approved."
Tommy Layfield of White City
asked how much the water bill
would be with the new system,
but Chairman Creamer said that
figure couldn't be defined at this
time. He said indications are that
it will be around $15.00 per
month.
THE BOARD agreed to spend
approximately $2,800 to pay for
surveys, title searches, and other
paper work involved in securing
property in the Cape San Bias

property is being purchased by

Tigers Down the Sharks 27-7


Just before the current foot-
ball season began, head coach
and athletic director, Phil Lanford
said his young and mostly untest-
ed Sharks would get better with
each game this year.
So far, the Sharks have done
just that. Turning in a lack-luster
performance at the Bay County
Jamboree, the Sharks were a lit-
tle better against the Wewahitch-
ka Gators the following week and
turned in almost an experienced
performance Friday night against
the state-ranked Chipley Tigers.
The Tigers had to use all their big
guns and turned Tony Davis into
a receiver as well as a talented
runner, to take a 27-7 win over
the visiting Sharks.
The speed of Davis and the
experience of their team was the
difference in the two teams, as
the Sharks failed to score twice
during the game, after shoving
the ball within scoring distance.
Early in the second period,
the Sharks drove to the Tiger six
before they were stopped cold on
a fourth down play with only a
foot to go for a first down. This
drive had started on the Chipley


36 and took four plays to march
to the six using the running tal-
ents of Calvin Pryor and Sarabia
Tiller.
Then, in the third period, the
Sharks mounted their longest
drive of the game on their own 24
yard line and drove to the Tiger
22, before Sandy Quinn was
caught in the Shark backfield by
a charging Tiger line for a five
yard loss on third down to stop
the drive. A pass on fourth down
was incomplete.
CHIPLEY SCORES FIRST
The Chipley Tigers drew first
blood in the game, as they drove
the length of the football field in
the second quarter, taking avan-
tage of a 39 yard pass to Dale
Moore and 30 and 15 yard gal-
lops by Tony Davis, when Gabriel
Berry hit Corey Lindsey with a 10
yard scoring strike in the end
zone.
Five minutes later, they were
back on the goal line, when Da-
vis, who was stopped twice at the
line, managed to break loose both
times, and took off on a five yard
dash for the goal line. Davis ran
the extra point attempt, making
the score 14-0 at half time.
With about three minutes left
in the third period, Tiger quarter-
back Berry coughed up the foot-
balla and Randy Smith fell on it
for the Sharks at the Chipley 21.


Five plays later, Sandy Quinn
came around left end for an 11
yard gallop and the touchdown.
Quinn was set loose from the Ti-
ger line with a vicious block
thrown by Calvin Pryor, as Quinn
turned the corner.
Eric Monteiro's kick for the
extra point was good, and the
Sharks were still in the game, 14-
7.
On the next set of plays, Tony
Davis fumbled on the Shark 25
and Devon Thomas covered the
loose football. Sandy Quinn
ripped off a 20 yard gallop, but
the Sharks clipped and broke the
back of the drive.
The Tigers scored twice in the
final period. Quarterback Berry
kept the ball on a two yard sneak
with 5:28 left in the game and
Tony Davis crossed the goal line
one more time, from the four yard
line with 1:15 left for the final


score of the game. The Tigers
made the final extra point good
for a 27-7 win.
Leading defenders for the
Sharks were: Calvin Pryor, 7
tackles; Perez Davis, 7; Jason
Hathaway 6 and Jeremy Tull 6.
Tony Thomas caught three
passes for 35 yards.

IMMEDIATE DENTURES


One of the cosmetic mira-
cles of modern dentistry is the
"immediate denture". These are
constructed BEFORE all remain-
ing natural teeth are removed
and inserted as soon as the fi-
nal teeth are extracted. Natural-
ly, they will need some adjust-
ments as your swollen gums
recede back to normal, but it's a
darn sight better than facing the
public with no teeth while your
dentures are being constructed
in the laboratory.
In this procedure, the back
teeth are removed but the front
teeth are allowed to remain.
When the gums are healed, im-
pressions are taken with the
front teeth still in place and den-
tures are prepared. When the


day of reckoning arrives, the
front teeth (and perhaps a few
others which may have re-
mained) are extracted and your
"immediate dentures" are insert-
ed at the same appointment.
Healing beneath the immedi-
ate denture is usually unevent-
ful. One might expect pain to re-
sult from wearing a denture over
an area from which teeth have
been extracted, but just the op-
posite occurs. The immediate
denture acts as a protective cov-
ering for the jaw as it is healing.

Prepared as a public service
to promote better dental health.

Gators Lose In Double Overtime


It was a see-saw contest Fri-
day night, between the Wewa-
hitchka Gators and the Hilliard
Flashes. The Gators had their
hand on the off switch of the
Flashes and tusseled with them
for two overtime periods, before
Hilliard managed to prevail, when
they turned back a Gator conver-
sion attempt to tie the game one
more time in the second overtime.
The Flashes took home a
hard-won 34-32 win over the Ga-
tors.
The Flashes scored first, tak-
ing advantage of a Gator fumble.
A Flash scooped up the loose ball


and scampered 10 yards for the
score.
The Gators bounced right
back and put two TD's upon the
board, when Mark Jones scooted
over from six yards out and Mar-
cus Vann got loose on an exciting
24 yard gallop. Both extra point
attempts failed.
But the Flashes proved they
were no flash in the pan, coming
right back to answer the Gators'
two scores with two of their own.
A two yard plunge and a "hail
Mary" 50-yard pass play put the
Flashes ahead again, 18-12.


Marcus Vann broke off one of
his long distance runs on the very
next Gator possession,. racing 24
yards to bring his team even with
the Flashes, at 18-18.
There the score stood at the
end of regulation time.
In the first overtime period,
Hillard took an eight point lead
when Canaday stumbled across
from the two. Potts took a pass
from Canaday for two extra
points.
In their end of the first over-
time period, the Gators put the
game into a tie again, when quar-
terback Denny McGlon scrambled
for a seven yard scoring jaunt
and passed to Robbie Lynn for a
two point conversion.
With therescore still knotted at
26-26, the teams squared off for
their second overtime period.
Hillard scored again on a five
yard dash by Riddles and scored
their second straight point after
with a Canaday dash, putting his
team ahead by eight points.
The Gators answered the
touchdown with a one yard dive
by Mark Jones, but the conver-
sion attempt failed, ending a
heart-breaking drive by the Ga-
tors for their first win of the sea-
son.
The Gators won the game in
the statistics, but the scoreboard
denied them a mark in the win
column. The Gators had a total of
286 yards of offense and 65 yards
of returns, while the Flashes
managed a respectable 223
yards. The Flashes were five for
eight through the air and the Ga-
tors had five completions in 11
attempts.

r CHILDREN'S HEALTH FORUM

Acciydns Rank First

SIn List ofMqaor Causes

ofDkdhhIn Chilcdnk

EzeBy
SElizabeth C. Jones, M.D.

In any list of major causes of death in children, accidents rank
first The cause of death in Florida January March 1991 lists acci-
dents as fifth in rank. This ranking includes adults as well as chil-
dren and means that 1,084 people died in Florida January March
1991 as a resultt of accidents.
For 1957-1959 Sweden had a much higher accidental death
rate than the United States, but in 1986 the rate had fallen much
below that of the United States. In fact, Sweden has the lowest acci-
dent death rate for children in the world. Sweden was able to ac-
complish this success by hard work at educating about accident
prevention and doing research into why accidents occur.
Parents should review causes of accidental death and think
preventatively for their children:
Cause of Death Age of Peak Incidents (Years)
Aspiration/Suffocation Under 1 year
Falls 1-4
Fire Burns 1-4
Pedestrian 5-9 and 15-19
Bicycle 10-14
Firearms 14-17
Drowning 15-19
Motor Vehicle Accidents 15-19
Please look carefully around your home to see if there is any-
thing you can do to prevent an accident to your child. In many in-
stances you will find situations needing correction that you can cor-
rect without too much problem.
Recent news has indicated alcohol related automobile fatalities
are down in our area. With continued work this can be reduced fur-
ther as can boating and swimming accidents. Each person has to
become tuned in to safety and work hard at it for himself and for
his family.

Team Improving with Each Game-Coach


"Our key for a successful sea-
son this year is to improve with
every game," football coach Phil
Lanford told the Kiwanis Club
Tuesday at their noon meeting.
'Thus far in the season, we
have met our goal of weekly im-
provement," Lanford said. "Our
kicking game has been better
than we expected; our running
game has been good and our
quarterback position is improving
in both performance and poten-
tial, with every game," /Lanford
said. "Our offensive line has been
better than we expected it to be,
what with our large number of
young players."
Lanford said the team faces a
tough schedule this year, with a
squad which is largely young and
inexperienced. 'We had a hard
time scheduling games this year.
We have been up for the past few
years and teams our size don't
want to play us," he said.
Friday's game should be a
good test of the team's improve-
ment. 'We could have won
against Chipley Friday night. We
had a couple of costly penalties
and a pass interception dropped
which would have been a touch-
down if the man had held on to
the ball. We expect things like
this from a young team, but they
are the kind of things which beat
you in a close game," said Lan-
ford.
Lanford said Wakulla-Friday

Gulf ACS

Meets to

Make Plans
The Board of Directors of the
American Cancer Society met re-
cently at the United Methodist
Church. The meeting was called
to order by ACS President Joyce
Groom. The prayer was led by
Roy Barnes. There were 12 mem-
bers present.
It was decided to continue
with four meetings per year. As
for the District, there will still be
two representatives from each
end of the county.
President Groom reported
that the North Gulf Unit was one
of the top three percent in the
state of Florida. The Unit raised
25 percent more than their goal!
The director, Sharon Urquart
of Bay County, came to the meet-
ing to speak on "Jail and Bail", a
new fundraiser. It was decided
that the North Gulf Unit would
have Jail and Bail on Tuesday,
October 29 from 9:00 to 3:00.
Perry Flowers, vice-president, will
be in charge of this.
Other fundraisers that have
been successful were discussed.

We are learning a new pledge
besides the Pledge of Allegiance.
Every morning on TV, our boys
and girls recite the Pride Pledge.
Here it Is:
I hope to make myself better
today than I was yesterday. My
teacher cannot do this for me. I
must do it for myself. In the way I
look, the way I act, the way I
work, I will be my best self.
Pre-K Visits Fire Station
Teacher Joyce Groom and
aide Janice Nelson and their tiny
tots recently visited the Central

ing does.
Student of the Week

Jackson, is the Student of the

ily". Her favorite book is I Am A
Bunny. Kelli likes to play with

18' Giraffe In Miss Judi's Room
The children in Miss Judi's.
second grade classroom have
been doing research on the ani-
mals in Africa. They have read
books on them, made their like-
ness in various art media, and
this week they will give their com-
piled report to the class. During
the school year they will investi-
gate many other topics.
Hornbooks
The children in the third
grade made hornbooks this past
week. No, we didn't flatten out a
cow's horn and skin off the thin
layer, but we made a reasonable
facsimile with acetate. The unit
that was completed last week in
reading was about things in the
past. We believe reading can help
us learn about the past and the
events that are worth remember-
ing. The children in Mrs. Linda
Tremain's and Mrs. Linda Whit-
field's third grade made horn-
books with cardboard, fans, yarn,
and then wrote words of wisdom
just like the Pilgrim children
years ago. It was very worthwhile.
Teresa Saves the Day!
As the children In Mrs. Linda
Whitfield's third grade class came
in from recess, they noticed a
gray cat sitting between the V-
shaped trunk of the tree. It was
so still that It looked like a pic-
ture. At lunch when the cat was ;
still in the exact same position,
the children got suspicious. Fi-
nally it was determined the cat
was lodged and couldn't move.
Who rounds the comer but Miss
Teresa Williams. I explained what
we thought and she said, '"Well,
he'll probably scratch my head
off, but I'll try." To make a long
story short, Teresa rescued the

Mr. Kelley to be Arrested
The American Cancer Society
is sponsoring Jail and Bail, a rel-
atively new moneymaker for the
Cancer Society. One of its partici-
pants is WES principal, Mr. Jerry
* E. Kelley. He is going to be arrest-


ed on one morning in October,
taken to the 'mock' Jail and held
there until he raises his bail mon-
ey. We need to help him out.
Some of the teachers are going to
put jars on their desks in case
any children want to bring in
some change. All proceeds will go
to that most worthy cause, the
American Cancer Society. I don't


know what he Is to be charged
with yet, but you can believe me,
it will be a good one. In Wewa-
hitchka, there will be about 19
other people arrested too. I un-
derstand Lynda Gall Shealy will
be arrested for running 'a clip
joint' and Kay Whitfleld will be ar-
rested for practicing medicine

Gulf Pines Bans Smoking In Hospital


Gulf Pines Hospital is pleased
to announce its new Clean Air
Program that will be going into ef-
fect October 1, 1991. This pro-
gram includes a no smoking poli-
cy effective throughout the
hospital. The new Clean Air Pro-
gram is long 'overdue as most,
hospitals throughout the United
States have decided to support
health and "clean" up their care
facilities. Gulf Pines Hospital Is
proud to finally be taking this
step.
'We are pleased to offer this .
program to our patients and em-
ployees," says Paul Fitzgerald, Ad-
ministrator. "Gulf Pines Hospital


is dedicated to preventive health,
and we feel this program demon-
strates our commitment to well-
ness and the people we serve."
Gulf Pines Hospital based
their decision to implement the
clean air program based on many
statistics taken over the past sev-
eral years. For example, two re-
cent studies, one a national sur-
vey and the other involving a
single, large company, illustrate
that smokers as well as non-
smokers are concerned about
smoking at the worksite. In 1983,
the-Gallup Organization did a na-
tion-wide survey of attitudes to-
ward smokihg'and found that 92

percent of all respondents, smok-
ers and nonsmokers, agreed that
smoking is harmful to health.
When asked whether individuals
should refrain from smoking in
the presence of nonsmokers, 55
percent of the smokers and 82
percent of the abstainers said
yes. An even larger percent 65
percent of smokers and 84 per-
cent of nonsmokers felt that
smoking is hazardous to the
health of nonsmokers. When
asked whether there should be
restrictions on smoking at the
workplace, 75 percent of smokers
and 87 percent of nonsmokers fa-
vored either designated smoking
areas or a total prohibition.
According to the U.S. Depart-
ment of Health and Human Ser-
vices, some shocking statistics
about the effects of smoking and
inhaling secondary smoke
prompted Gulf Pines Hospital to
implement the New Clean Air Pro-
gram:
*80 to 90 percent of such
long-term severe lung diseases as
emphysema and chronic bronchi-'
tis are related to smoking.
*It is estimated that 30 per-
cent of all cancers are caused by
smoking. That: means that


138,000 Americans will die of
cancer because of smoking.
*More that 550,000 Ameri-
cans will die of coronary heart
disease this year, and up to 30
percent of those deaths will be at-
tributable to cigarette smoking.
*Heavy smokers have a 200
percent greater risk of dying from
coronary heart disease than non-
smokers, and overall the risk for
all smokers, regardless of the
amount smoked, is 70 percent
greater than for those who do not
smoke.
*Evidence demonstrates that
smoking during pregnancy has a
significant adverse effect upon
the well-being of the fetus and
the health of the newborn, in-
cluding causing lower birth
weight infants and increasing the
risk of spontaneous abortion and
neonatal deaths.
With the knowledge of these
statistics, Gulf Pines Hospital has
sponsored a free smoking cessa-
tion workshop to support those
employees that have the desire to
quit smoking.

Know Fertilizer





Terms Before





You Feed Plants



Special Formulas Meet Different

Needs of Your Lawn and Garden


By Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Director
Most of us have been faced

with the dilemma of choosing a
fertilizer for our landscape plants.
This can be a very difficult and
intimidating process if you're not
prepared to deal with garden sup-
ply salesmen. Fertilizer manufac-
turers complicate the process
even further by marketing fertiliz-

er in a multitude of ways. There
are complete fertilizers, incom-

plete fertilizers, special purpose
fertilizer, foliar fertilizers, fertilizer

and pesticide combinations, or-
ganic fertilizers, inorganic fertiliz-
er, slow release fertilizer and the
list goes on and on. Much of the
confusion in choosing a fertilizer
that is best for a particular situa-
tion can be attributed to the ter-
minology as it applies to fertiliz-
ers.
When a fertilizer contains the
three major plant nutrients: ni-
trogen, phosphorus, and potas-
sium, it is called a "complete ferti-
lizer." Although in actuality it is
not complete since it may not
contain any of the minor plant
nutrients such as iron and man-
ganese. When only ne of two of
the major plant nutrients are
present in a fertilizer it is referred
to as an "incomplete fertilizer."
A "balanced fertilizer" is one
containing the three major nutri-
ents in equal amounts. The ferti-
lizer 8-8-8 is a "complete unbal-
anced fertilizer" is one that
contains all three major nutrient
elements and all three are
present in equal amounts.
A "complete-unbalanced ferti-
lizer" is one that contains all
three major nutrients but each is
not present in equal amounts. A
16-4-8 fertilizer is an example of
a complete-unbalanced fertilizer.
Special purpose fertilizers are
formulated to induce a desiredred re-
sponse from a plant. An example
of a special purpose fertilizer is a
low nitrogen, high potassium fer-
tilizer. This fertilizer is formulated
to increase the drought tolerance
of turfgrasses.
Foliar fertilizers are water-
soluble materials applied to the
foliage of a plant instead of the
soil. This method of fertilization is
usually practiced in supplying

regular turfgrass fertilizer and
care must be taken not to apply
these fertilizers near other plants
since they can injure shrubs and
trees.
Probably the most confusing
fertilizer terms are organic and
inorganic. Today, anything that is
organic is looked upon as better
than Inorganic. Organic products
are natural and therefore must be
better for us and the environ-
ment. However, plants obtain the
same nutrients from inorganic
fertilizers as they do from organic
fertilizer and could care less how
they obtain them.
The major advantage of or-
ganic fertilizers over inorganic fer-
tilizers is the slow release of the
major plant nutrients. Most or-
ganic fertilizer must be decom-
posed by soil microorganisms be-
fore nutrients are made available
to plants. This reduces the possi-
bility of fertilizer burn. They also
provide nutrients to the roots of
plants for a long period of time
and less is available to pollute
our lakes and rivers. Unfortu-
nately, not all organic fertilizers
release their nutrients slowly.
There are some organic forms of
nitrogen (urea) in fertilizers that
release nitrogen just as fast as in-
organic fertilizers. So don't be
fooled by a fertilizer label which
states that the enclosed fertilizer
is 50 percent organic. It may be
in an organic form, but chances
are that it is not in a slow release
form.
When purchasing fertilizers,
look for terms like "slow release",
"controlled release", "sulfur coat-

ed urea", "ureaformaldahyde",
and "water insoluble nitrogen".
these are all forms of fertilizers
which release nitrogen slowly to
plants. You will pay more for

these types of fertilizers, but the
benefits outweigh the cost.
