Wewa Is


Talking


to EPA
The City of Wewahitchka has
a chance for escaping the hefty
fine imposed on them recently by
the U.S. Environmental Protec-
tion Agency: a chance but not a
definite fact.
The City is finally talking
with EPA by telephone and
through the mails about the mat-
ter of violations of agency rules
and regulations for the operation
of its sewage disposal plant.
0 According to Wewahitchka
City Commissioner Tommy Mor-
gan, the City has established a
dialogue with EPA to the point
where the environmental group is
now asking for paperwork and
records on the City's plans for up-
grading the disposal plant. That's
progress.
The reason for the fine levy
was that the City has not talked
to the people in Atlanta and kept
them informed as to Wewahitch-
ka's plans and/or actions.
Currently, the City is in the
process of securing the services of
an engineer to begin work on
meeting EPA requirements for
outfall from the plant. The main
objections of the federal are that
the plant sends effluent into the
Chipola River without proper
treatment, and that the holding
pond has no liner to prevent
waste water from soaking into the
ground water stream.
At their meeting Tuesday
night, the City Commission took
up the matter of maintenance for
a road in Homewood Subdivision.
Property owners in the subdivi-
* sion claim the City had-promised
to maintain the street and have
not done so.
In the meantime, the street
right-of-way has grown up in
bushes, small trees and shown
the effects of neglect. The Com-
mission said Tuesday they would
seek the help of Gulf County to
clear the right-of-way once again
and then the City would maintain
the street.

Getting Reduced Phone Toll Rates


State PSC Agree to 25 Per Call Schedule Inside


Port St. Joe Postmaster, Dennis Geo- the Postal Service in Wednesday's cere-
ghagan presented Mrs. Hardy with a cer- money, as postal authorities closed the
tificate of merit for her long service with Overstreet office, permanently.


Overstreet Post Office Closing

After Three-Quarters of a Century of Serving Area


After 74 years of being there for the peo-
ple of Gulf County, the Overstreet Post Office
is there no longer. It was closed by the Postal
Service yesterday at noon, and taken out of
service by Postal authorities.
The old office had been in service since
August 29, 1914,- when a postal inspector
came to the small settlement in the woods of
western Gulf County and set up the office to
serve the few families who lived in the vicini-
ty at the time. The first postmaster to man
the new mail station was Lilla Scott. It was
located in a building on the north bank of
the creek, overlooking the stream.
At the time of the organization of the of-
fice, Overstreet was in a wilderness which
was almost impossible to reach. The commu-
nity grew in the early part of this century,
when turpentine mills and logging operations
flourished in the thick pine forests of the
county.
According to Mrs. Edna Patrick Hardy,
who was postmaster at the closing of the sta-
tion yesterday, the community at one time
supported six turpentine stills, with the larg-
est operated by Betts Naval Stores, George
Gaskin, George Hardy and the Ewing Family.
In May of 1916, nearly two years after it
was first opened, Thomas L. Patrick took
over as postmaster of the Overstreet office.
He moved the office across the creek into his
store building, where it was to remain for the
rest of its days. In 1940, Patrick retired from
the postal service and his daughter, Edna
Patrick Hardy became postmaster. She
served in that capacity until that office was
closed yesterday.
Mrs. Hardy recalls the days when the
mail was brought to Overstreet out of Wewa-
hitchka on a horse and wagon daily. Later
on, after the Intracoastal Canal was dug, it
was brought by boat from Panama City each


day, until 1940.
About the time Mrs. Hardy assumed her
duties as postmaster, she and her husband,
Roland, started making two trips each day to
Beacon Hill to meet the mail truck and pick
up the Overstreet mail. For many years, this

The Overstreet Volunteer Fire Depart-
ment will host a retirement party for Mrs.
Hardy Sunday afternoon at 4:00 p.m.,
EST.

trip was made over a sand rut road from
Overstreet to Highway 98. For the last sever-
al years, the mail was delivered directly to
the post office by route trucks.
It was an adventure delivering mail to
and from Overstreet prior to the early 1950's,
when the Overstreet Road was paved from
Beacon Hill to Highway 71, just south of We-
wahitchka.
Along with the sand rut road, which took
a hardy vehicle to traverse, it was necessary
to cross the canal at Overstreet on a ferry
which was pulled back and forth across the
stream by a man. In the '20's, this ferry was
operated 24 hours a day, seven days a week,
by one family. Crossings were understanda-
bly delayed for several hours at times. Of
course, most of the time, it was several
hours between vehicles wanting to cross.
1950 was a banner year for Overstreet
and the post office there. The floating bridge
which had formerly served canal crossings at
White City was moved to Overstreet, when
the new Elgin Baylis Bridge was completed
at White City. Overstreet also received its
first electric and telephone services that
year.
The year of 1991 will be remembered as
the year the post office was closed at Over-
street, by the U.S. Postal Service.


County; Notification


Gulf County residents will
soon have a modified toll-free tel-
ephone service in operation with-
in the county, according to word
received by the Gulf County Com-
mission from the Public Service
Commission.
Administrative Assistant, Lar-
ry Wells, who has been working
on securing a toll-free telephone
service for the county, told the
Board at its meeting Tuesday that
he had received tentative approv-
al from an official of the PSC for
the modified phone service.
Wells said, "Rick Cinennan,
of the PSC told me over the tele-
phone that the county would be
receiving written orders from the
PSC approximately November 15
[Friday] that their decision has
become final."
Wells said the PSC had ap-
proved a plan which will allow
Gulf County residents to make
calls which were formerly toll
calls inside the county at a cost
of 25t each, regardless of the
length of the call.
St. Joseph Telephone and
Telegraph Company will have six
months to implement this new
Extended Area Service calling
plan.
The county had requested a
toll-free service throughout the
county, but the PSC approved the
Extended Area Service plan as a
set toll charge as a substitute.
WATER PROBLEMS
Rick Herndon of the Rural
Water Board, reported to the
Commission on an inspection he
had made of the Highland View
and Beaches systems.
In a nutshell, Herndon told
the Board they would drastically
curtail their losses, thus increas-
ing revenues from the systems, if
they would continue to give atten-
tion to-an adequate metering sys-
tem and monitor it closely.
Don Butler, who has over-
seen maintenance on both sys-
tems for the past few months in
addition to his building inspec-
tion duties, said, 'We have al-
ready changed 180 of the 230 wa-
ter meters in Highland View,"
where most of the losses seem to
be incurred, through faulty me-
tering and leaks. Butler said
maintenance people are working
on the leaks, but that there were
quite a few of them when the
maintenance program began.
Herndon said testing by his
group revealed no significant
leaks were found.
The Rural Water Board expert
advised the County to purchase
and install a master meter for the
Beaches system and reported he
had found an oyster shell in the
meter monitoring Highland View's
system, making the meter inoper-
able.
The City of Port St. Joe,
which supplies treated water to
both systems, maintains a meas-
uring meter near their water
treatment plant to maintain some
records of water used in the two
systems, but that both systems
needed meters of their own to
check usage against water pur-
chased.
Herndon also recommended
that the meters be calibrated an-
nually. He said he had calibrated
the City's meter and found it to
be accurate.
Herndon recommended a
continued program of testing and


Piling Delivered
Barges unloaded pre-stressed concrete piling late last
week at the site of the new Highland View Bridge construc-
tion projection site. According to Bob Richy, chief engineer
on the project, some 90 piling were shipped into Port St.
Joe from the plant in Mississippi, for the job.
Richy said the driving of the piling should get under way
today or tomorrow, barring unforseen circumstances. He
said the driving operation would take a few weeks and might
disturb some who work or live in close proximity to the
bridge. "We're sorry for that, but we have to drive the piling
for the project," he said.
Work has been under way for nearly a month, now, with
clearing right of way, building detour routes for Highway 98
approaches to the present draw bridge which is being re-
placed and setting up machinery to do the construction
work.


In the photo at left, some of the piling can be seen lying
Son the ground on the left side of the photo. The huge cranes
are being used to place the piling in their proper location in
preparation for the driving operation.

Expected Friday


Rural Water Board
expert, Rick Herndon,
advises County to
maintain adequate
water metering
equipment on High-
land View and
Beaches systems to
prevent loss of reve-
nues due to failure to
record customer us-
age.

changing out bad meters in the
Highland View system, establish
a hook-up charge, set up ade-
quate deposits, make a viable
charge for larger special meters
and take a look at rates.
He recognized that "700 wa-
ter meters are hard to keep up
with, but it's something which
must be done to keep your sys-
tem operating on a sound busi-
ness basis".
As a footnote to Hemrdon's
recommendations, Board chair-
man Billy Traylor said, 'We need
to address the matter of how long
we intend to finance the $50,000
loan this Board made to the High-
land View system when we took it
over."
The money was loaned to
Highland View to connect to the
main leading to the Beaches and
to pay off their FHA loan made
against the original installation of
the service back in the middle
'60's.
The Board agreed to set up
the loan to be repaid over a five
year period.
OTHER BUSINESS
In other items of business,
the Commission:
-Heard a suggestion from
Mike Hammond to name the new
White City bridge after George
Harper. Hammond said he had
signatures of about 150 citizens
who wanted the bridge named for
the long-time resident. The Com-
mission didn't act on the matter,
adopting the attitude of attorney
Bob Moore, who said, "Frankly, I
don't think any suggestions will
make any difference to the DOT,
who own the bridge and have the
responsibility to name it."
-Had previously declared
and proclaimed the St. Joseph
Peninsula and Cape San Blas
area a "no hunting" area and gave
Sheriff Al Harrison permission to
place signs along the Peninsula
road, stipulating that no hunting
would be allowed.
-Was alerted by attorney
Moore and administrative assist-
ant Wells that the county was in
the middle of a "squeeze play"
from the Department of Commu-
nity Affairs. One office says, "Get
ready for court on the matter of
the county's Comprehensive Plan"
while another office is agreeing
for a conference to work out dif-
ferences, but have failed to com-
municate with the County.
'Watch your step!" advised attor-
ney Moore.
-Agreed to give County em-
ployees Friday after Thanksgiving
as a paid holiday this year only.

No Fooling

State Senator Jack Gordon, of "the other Florida", Miami
Beach, has come out hot and heavy in support of a plan which
would create an income tax for what he describes as the wealthi-
est Floridians.
Senator Gordon is described by some of the newspapers of
the state as being "the most liberal Democrat" in the state legis-
lature.
With his idea for placing an income tax on the wealthiest of
the state's residents, in order to help solve Florida's financial
problems, he sounds liberal. Although there aren't very many
liberals here in the Panhandle, the taxing the rich suggestion, in
order to provide services for the poor, makes Senator Gordon
sound like a south Florida Robin Hood.
Gordon says, "Florida's current tax structure is simply intol-
erable". Of course that isn't a very original observation, since all
the conservatives, the liberals and those who are neither, but
are tired of having their tax bill climb continually, have the same
opinion as Gordon on that point. We suppose that's because
Florida's current tax structure is simply intolerable.
But the old ploy of taxing the rich won't sell any more. Gor-
don is going to have a: hard time peddling that idea to Floridians.
The idea of an income tax to Florida's citizens is about as popu-
lar as a snowstorm in his home town of Miami Beach. Florida's
electors voting for such an Idea has about as much chance of
happening as does that same snowstorm.
There aren't many Floridian's around now who were here
when the national income tax was initiated around the time of
World War I. They don't remember, first hand, how proponents
of the income tax in those days couldn't see how the tax could
possibly balloon to more than one percent of a person's wages.
Even Social Security was sold on the premise that the deduc-
tions would never rise above one percent, in all likelihood.
Well, those one percent days are gone forever. The thing they
did, though, was to alert everyone in the nation to the fact peo-
ple cannot contain tax rate growth, nor can they contain the
continued growth of those who suddenly become eligible to par-
ticipate in such things as income taxes, etc.
We don't know who Senator Gordon thinks he is fooling in
his attempt to sell his idea. The people of Florida are not about
to freely turn more of their money over to a bunch who have
been so inept at handling what they are now entrusted with.



Word of Encouragement

For the second week in a row, we're commenting here in this
column about a letter we have received here at The Star.
And, for the second week in a row, we feel the subject of the
letter is timely and has hit home on an important subject about
which we all should be concerned.
We admit, the letter came from someone who does not live in
Gulf County. We admit, too, that we feel the need of everyone
sharing public expense, Just as Commissioner Traylor does,
which gives us more impetus to print these few words concern-
ing tlletter' which waswritten approving wholeheartedly of
Trayl s position.
IOme might say that Don Hudgins, the writer of the letter,
does not live in Gulf County, so who does he think he is; butting
into our business? The thing is, the problem addressed by Com-
missioner Traylor and approved by letter writer Hudgins, is a
universal problem these days and becoming more pressing every
day. It's just evident to us here in Gulf County because we're
right in the middle of having more needs than we have money to
care for those needs.
Commissioner Traylor's suggestion and belief that those who
use services should also pay for them, is not a new idea. The
idea might be overdue in being expressed as a serious solution
to some of our fiscal problems, but it's not new or unique by any
means. It's strange to see people who receive benefits from one
source or another and consider that service as being free, simply
because he isn't required to pull a dollar out of his pocket and
say, "Here. This is for for picking up my trash." Somebody is al-
ready paying for that service and in all likelihood, the one paying
doesn't realize he is even doing so.
We, like Hudgihs, applaud Commissioner Traylor's philoso-
phy about the matter of paying for services. We feel he has
enough backbone to stick with the idea and the fortitude to
present it as a viable answer to Gulf County's problems. We ap-
preciate Mr. Hudgins expressing a word of encouragement to
someone willing to take the bull by the horns, so to speak. Now
we can only hope that Traylor's evangelistic zeal in this matter
will spread to the point of approval and initiation.

You could tell when Miss Pol-
ly Rucker was excited, her voice
would rise an octave or two and
the words would kind'a just tum-
ble out. Miss Polly started teach-
ing senior English a year or two
before the Wright Brothers took
off at Kitty Hawk. She'd fool you
at first with that gruff exterior,
but you soon learned about her.
special heart and the great love
for her students...........
"Miss Spolly, you want us to
do what?" Miss Polly especially
liked the boys and Yogi was her
favorite.
"It's an easy essay on life,"
the words were pouring out a
hundred miles an hour, "And
Bobby," she's the only person
who called Yogi Bobby, some-


times even Robert, "you're going
to have fun doing it."
"Aw, Miss Spolly-"
"Don't Miss Spolly me, you
are going to like this. We're
embarking on a new trail, a spe-
cial adventure. We're going to do
an essay on real things, on life's
everyday trials and situations.
Now, don't go copying something
out of the encyclopedia like you
usually do. I want you to come up
with an original idea, research it
down in minute detail, do inter-
views, talk to people knowledgea-
ble on the subject, get the facts
and then write it down in a neat,
concise, coherent 1500 word
essay."
"Aw, Miss Spolly........."
"Lordy mercy America, I
thought she was about to swoon
when she got down to that part
about embarking on new trails."
We were discussing the day's
activities over a root beer float at
the drug store.
'You reckon this means I
can't pull out my old standby
report on G.W." Ricky Gene was a


near 'bout expert on George
Washington, he'd been essaying
or book reporting on him, yearly
since the second grade.
"Kes, how are you going to
work baseball into this kind of
report?" I had been known to
turn in a baseball paper or two in
my time.
And I had been studying on it
some since English class that
morning. 'You know those folks
that say a curve ball is an optical
illusion that it is aerodynami-
cally impossible to change the
direction of an object other than
to the natural downward path
caused by gravity after it leaves
your hand. I think I'll prove them
wrong."
"How you going to do that.
You can't even spell aerodynam-
ics!"
"I'll get David Mark to stand
directly behind a tree and I'll
back up 60 feet 6 inches and
whop him up side the head with
an optical illusion."
Laughter.
'You can interview him when


he comes to."
More laughter. Except, of
course, from David Mark.
'You guys ever wonder why
they're always fighting over at the
Rainbow?" Eddie Ray Gilbert
didn't usually hang out with us.
He was a little too much on the
studious side for our group. As a
matter of fact, I hadn't even
noticed him sitting in one of the
booths. "I think I'll do my report
on what precipitates the almost
nightly fights they have over
there."
Buddy studied on that for a
moment. "I don't think rain has
anything to do with it."
The Rainbow Bar was located
out near Big Sandy. None of us
had ever actually been in there.
We were not old enough, or tough
enough. About every other Satur-
day night they would advertise
that Jerry Lee Lewis was going to
sing but as far as I know he never
showed up. They'd do anything
down there to gather up a crowd.
We did try it once. We got as

Don't Ask How I Got From Discussing November to Touting the H.S. Band


HAVE YOU LOOKED at the

that today we are already two
weeks into the month of Novem-
ber? We're getting into the heavy
holiday season like a run-away
freight train and the air condi-
tioners are still running, even if it
is only on a part time basis.
I'm usually way ahead of the
game at this time of the year. You
see, Thanksgiving and Christmas
are usually the seasons of the
year when I take some time off
and when they get here I'm usu-
ally looking ahead to those days
off as eagerly as a five-year-old
waiting for Santa Claus.
Folks, they're slipping up on
me. In two weeks it will be
Thanksgiving and I've not even
thought of what I'm going to do
Thanksgiving.

Asheville, North Carolina to tour

the Dillard House in North Geor-
gia and spent the week end just
roaming around that part of the
world.
What's going to happen this
year?
Whatever it will be, we'd bet-
ter start making plans in a hurry.

I'VE NOTICED, TOO, that it
has stopped raining in this part
of the world. During the months
of June through August, we could
hardly buy a dry day and now it's
dry all over. The rain has turned
off just as completely as it was
turned on a couple of months
ago.

The ground is dry. The dust
is blowing. The grass is dying and
the leaves are turning brown .
and loosely
November is usually the be-
ginning of the Christmas activity
season, but so far only a sprink-
ling of Christmas preparation has
been seen.

ONE THING ABOUT Novem-
ber is that the high school foot-
ball season is drawing to a close.
There are only two more games,
for the Sharks to play and the
season will be over. There's not
much chance in the team becom-
ing involved in the state play-off


system this year. Even so, the
crowds have been good and the
support enthusiastic. I like that.
Friday night was the final
'home game of the season.
There was a feature at the
Homecoming game which should
have provided a lot of nostalgia
for those participating and some
entertainment for those who at-
tended the game.
An alumni band, made up of
former members of the band,
played at half time.
The band at our high school
concerns me. Talking with Robin
Downs, current bandmaster, re-
cently, we both drew the conclu-
sion that the band would be a
better organization if we could
manage to put three or four years
together with the same person as
bandmaster. The position has
been almost a revolving door at
Port St Joe High School for the
past several years. As a conse-
quence there has been no conti-
nuity in the program, and it
shows.


The kids seem not to have an
interest in what was one of the
most enjoyable activities I partici-
pated in when I was a high school
student. That was a long time
ago, but I remember it.
I HAVE SUPPORTED all the
bandmasters we have had at Port
St. Joe High School, even though,
in truth, some of them couldn't
even function with support I
don't know why we have had
such a hard time attracting a vi-
able bandmaster.
Those who saw the DeFuniak
Springs band a few weeks ago
thoroughly enjoyed their pro-
gram, and the kids looked like
they enjoyed putting it on. Ours
could have that same satisfaction
and enjoyment if we could just
put together a comparable band.
One of the members of that
alumni band Friday night, was
the present bandmaster, Robin
Downs. Robin was a top-notch
musician with the band when he
was a student at Port St. Joe


High School. He has the ability to
put a good organization together
and he has the interest one can
only have when he is doing some-
thing for his home town.

I SINCERELY HOPE the par-
ents of Port St. Joe give Robin the
support he needs and encourage
their children to become a part of
one of the most enjoyable activi-
ties they will ever become in-
volved with during their school
years. It's the only way we will
ever rid ourselves of the band dol-
drums.
Even if a person can't sing a
lick or carry a tune in a bushel
basket, if he or she likes music,
they can learn to play a horn, or
beat a drum.
Only one of my grandchildren
played in the band. The rest are
the losers for it. I hope your chil-
dren and grandchildren will be-
come a part of it and that you will

pets. My children are no exception. My oldest has a dog, my
youngest son and I have a dog and my daughter has a cat.
This has not always been the case, however. There was a
time when we had neither cat, dog, elephant, cow, horse, or any
living animal at our house. I was happier then, but that's another
story.
Many years ago, when my daughter was just a wee little girl,
she was sitting on my lap one day and said, out of the clear blue,
"Da-da, I mon'ta tat." I said, 'You want a what, Darling?" Then
she said it again, "I mon'ta tat."
Finally my wife and I figured it out. She said she wanted a
cat See all little girls, or most of them, like cats for pets. When
they get older their taste runs to more exotic animals, like boys.
We were living in Knoxville, Tennessee, at the time and I had
no way of knowing where or how to go about finding a cat for my
little darling. The next day I inquired at work but no one seemed
to know where I could find a male kitten for my little girl.
There was only one thing left to do and as much as I hated to
do it,I made myself stop by the Dutch Tavern on my way home
and see if I could possibly get a lead on a cat for my little girl.
When I arrived at the Dutch, there was a birthday party in
progress and I was immediately caught up in the festivities, as
much as I hated it. Anyway, before I knew it the clock was strik-
ing midnight and I had forgotten why I had stopped by in the
first place. I only knew I was a little late for supper and I had bet-
ter get home.
I paid my tab and started out to my car, a relatively new, fire-
engine red Volkswagen bug. That's when I spotted him and re-
membered why I had stopped by the Dutch. k
He jumped out of a dumpster where he had been looking for
a meal and headed straight toward me. He was big and yellow ex-
cept in places where he was dirty, and he walked with a steady"
gait that all cats have. For an alley cat he was in good shape and
was exceptionally friendly.
I petted him a little and then I picked him up. He started
purring and nuzzling me with this head,,as cats will do. I gave
him a quick inspection and determined he was a male cat and
then I said to him, "Kitty-cat, you will never have to worry about
food again. I'm taking you to a warm home to a little girl with a
loving and warm heart and she will love you and take care of you
for the rest of your life."
With that I opened the door to my car, got in and placed Kitty
on the seat beside me. I petted him a little more just to make
sure he was not uneasy, and then I turned on the switch.
It was freezing cold out that night and I had been inside for
several hours. When I had gotten out of my car I had left the
heater on wide open and had the radio tuned to a country-
western station and it was just about full-blast, too. And when
the car started, the engine was cold and the automatic choke had
it running wide open, too. The sudden blast of noise from the en-
gine, radio and heater was enough to startle a deaf-mutel
If the sudden noise startled me, it shocked the cat almost out
of his skin! The best way I can describe his actions after that is
he went around that small Volkswagen like a golf ball hit in a tile
shower stall. He was bouncing off me, the windows, the wind-
shield, seats, doors, roof and anything else that was in the car.
For about two minutes I tried to catch him, but it was all in vain
because he was too fast and half his hair was coming out and all
his claws were out and catching me each pass he made.
After about two minutes I realized catching him was impossi-
ble so I decided to flush him out with a six-pack. But before I
could run purchase the beer, he jumped out and ran off into the
dark, ,cold night, never to be seen again. He left half his hair on
me and in my car, deep claw marks on my face and body that
took several weeks to heal and a broken-hearted little girl at
home. Why, it if hadn't been for the "anti-freeze" I had consumed
earlier, they might have had to take me to the hospital. I almost
checked in on my own the next morning.
My experience with cats has not been all that good, as you
can see. My daughter's cat is allowed in the house from time to
time, but riding in the car is strictly prohibited!


Lions Club Educating Public

On the Dangers of Diabetes


November is diabetes educa-
tion month, and the Lions Club of
Port St. Joe is promoting an
awareness campaign to help edu-
cate people to the problems asso-
ciated with this disease. Many
people probably do not know that
diabetes can cause blindness, nor
do they understand what dia-
betes is.
Of the two types of diabetes,
Type I is the one most people
have heard of. This is referred to
as insulin-dependent diabetes
and usually develops before age
30. It usually has a severe onset.
Daily injections of insulin must
be taken throughout life. Without
insulin injections, a person with
Type I diabetes will die.
S Type II or non-insulin-
dependent diabetes is the most
common form of the disease. Its
onset is generally undramatic.
This form of diabetes strikes most
often after age 40. While some
Type II diabetics take insulin
injections, they would not die
without them.
Some signs and symptoms of
diabetes are: increased thirst and


hunger, more frequent urination,
drowsiness and fatigue, blurred
vision, slow healing, and tingling
sensation in hands and feet If
there is a history of diabetes in
your family, you may be at great-
er risk and should be checked by
a doctor routinely.
Handout literature is being
distributed by the Port St. Joe
Lions Club as a public service.
These flyers are in the form of
book marks and are available at
the library, schools, and other
locations throughout Port St. Joe.

... to the Editor .

Writer Agrees
With Traylor
To the Editor:
I would like to applaud Com-
missioner Billy Traylor for his
stance that everyone should pay
their share. Ad valorem taxes are
high enough as it is and if every-
one is not paying their share that
means that in the future ad valo-
rem taxes are bound to increase.
When taxes increase the net
effect is no growth or slow growth
at the most. Commissioner Tray-
tor is a breath of fresh air with
his suggestion that everyone
should pay if you use. I doubt
that Commissioner Traylor will be
a one-term Commissioner with
this type suggestion. He will be
around when others are long
gone.
I hope that other commis-
sioners take the bull by the horns
such as Commissioner Traylor
has done and bring to light ways
of saving the taxpayer the burden
of more unfair taxation.
Sincerely,
Don Hudgins

Children grieve about many things the loss of a doll, the
death of a hamster, parents divorcing, moving away from friends,
death of parents or grandparents. How they handle grief depends
on the age of the child and the help they receive along the way.
As early as five or six months of age, an infant will express up-
set at the loss or change in the usual caregiver. The baby senses
the change in care and may express it in degrees from unusual
fussiness or crying to apathy and withdrawal.
Older children react to loss in many ways. When someone dies,
children are often told the person "went to sleep". Even young chil-
dren react poorly to this explanation and will sometimes become
afraid to go to sleep.
Parents often need to decide whether or not a child should go to
a funeral. Probably after the age of six years it is a good idea to in-
clude the children. Actually seeing what occurs is usually better for
the child than what he imagines if he is not in attendance. If possi-
ble some family member who is less affected by the death can be re-
sponsible for the child throughout the period.
Adults will accept death and try to move forward. Sometimes
they avoid talking to children about the person who died. The par-
ent feels the child is too young to grieve. This is a mistake and par-
ents should try to talk with their children. Regular sessions for a
long time are needed to help the children function normally after
the death of someone close.
Just because it has been several years since a child suffered a
loss, do not conclude that he is over it. When a young child loses a
parent, he probably never recovers. With help he can move on with
his life and eventually make the adjustment, but he will not be the
same person he would have been had the loss not occurred.

Quilt Wins Blue Ribbon

at International Show


The Hoffman Fabric Compa-
ny, one of the best-known fabric
companies in quilting circles, has
a "Hoffman Challenge" contest
each year. This is an internation-
al event and entries are received
from Australia, Canada, and all
over the United States. The
entrants buy up to two yards of
the challenge fabric to create an
art piece.
The 1991 challenge fabric
was named "Painted Desert" and
Missy Vaughan (Mrs. John Vau-
ghan) of 102 Sunset Circle, Port
ST. Joe, received a blue ribbon
for her entry at the opening of the
show in Houston, Texas. Missy is
a member of the St. Andrew Bay
Quilters' Guild.
There were 333 entries sub-
mitted and there were three blue
ribbons awarded: one for Piece
Work; one for Mixed Technique;
and one for Applique. Missy's
award was for the Applique cate-
gory. Although the fabric was
named "Painted Desert", Missy's
entry depicted "fish"!
Along with other craft pro-
jects, Missy worked on her entry
about four months. The entries
will be on exhibit for a year in
about 50 different cities all over
the United States.
Even before Missy was offi-
cially notified of her award on
November 6, she had received the
exciting news via a long-distance
telephone call from a friend who

*Why do people buy the cars
they do? According to a survey
by the Insurance Research
Council, 68 percent of respon-
dents said that safety at
least, occupant protection -
was a top priority in choosing a
car. Operating costs were the
second most important factor.
*The right fuel for your car is
the lowest-octane gasoline that
doesn't cause the engine to
ping. Occasional knocks are all
right, but if the noise continues,
move up to a higher-grade gaso-
line.
*Snow tries should be mounted
on a car's drive wheels: up
front in the front-wheel-drive
car. Never mix two kinds of
tires on one axle, or the car will
be unstable and handling will
suffer.
*The best way to beat a tailgat-
er is to let the tailgating driver
pass. If necessary, find a safe
spot and pull over.
*Antique cars, according to col-
lectors, are those made before
1916. Vintage cars are those
built between 1916 and 1925.
Classics, made from 1925 to

Gladiators Overthrow Sharks 20-14


Sarabia Tiller (10) takes a hand off from quarterback Jason
Maxwell Friday evening. Tiller was the leading ground gainer for
the Sharks.

Bulldogs Defeat Gators


It's been a long time coming,
but the Havana Gladiators finally
defeated the Sharks for two years
in a row.
In a cold stadium and a chill-
ing wind, the Gladiators used the
passing arm of Erick Hinson to
roll up a whopping 440 yards of
offense to squeak past the
Sharks, 20-14, and cast a cloud
over the Shark homecoming.
Hinson, the number one
passing quarterback in the state
of Florida, filled the air with foot-
balls when the Gladiators were in
possession, throwing 52 times
and connecting on 28 of them.
The Sharks came within an
illegal block of winning the game,
even with the Gladiators seeming
to go up and down the field at
will, with the passing combina-
tion of Hinson and Demetric Salt-
ers. Early in the third quarter,
Hinson unloaded a pass near the
Shark goal line, which was picked
off by Tony Thomas, who raced
the length of the field for a touch-
down. The referees called a Shark
for blocking below the belt near
mid-field, which nullified th'
scoring jaunt.
FIRST HALF DAMAGE
The Gladiators did all their
scoring damage in the first half.
Half way through the first quar-
ter, Hinson hit Salters in the end
zone on a short two-yard scoring
toss to take the lead. The extra
point attempt was a pass which
fell to the ground.
The Sharks evened the score
in the first play of the second pe-
riod, when Jason Maxwell hit
Tony Thomas on a 61 yard scor-
ing strike. The extra point kick
went wide, leaving the score at 6-
6.
The Gladiators also used the
second period to go 14 points up
on the Sharks, which eventually
proved to be enough to win the
game. Hinson threw for both
scores, hitting Telfon Williams in
the left comer of the end zone to
take the lead again. The Gladia-
tors failed to convert their extra
point. Havana made their second
and final TD of the game with
nearly five minutes remaining in
the first half, when Hinson found
Salters with a scoring toss from
the 12 yard line. This time, the
extra point attempt succeeded


with a pass to Salters for two
points.
SHARKS PLAY CATCH-UP
The Sharks were in the posi-
tion of having to play catch-up on
the second half and came within
the illegal block of doing just
that.
After the unfortunate experi-
ence of having a much-needed TD
called back, the Sharks again put
together a scoring drive, late in
the third stanza. Starting on the
Havana 47 yard line, Sarabia Til-
ler, Devon Thomas and Calvin
Pryor worked the ball to the seven
yard line in 11 plays and Pryor
took the ball in from the seven.
Tiller ran the ball over for the two
extra points.
The Sharks had a balanced


offensive attack against the Gladi-
ators, rushing for 109 yards on
the ground and took advantage of
three passes from Maxwell for an-
other 84 yards. Tony Thomas
caught two of the passes for 80
yards.
Sarabia Tiller was the leading
ground gainer for the Sharks with
63 yards in 14 carries. Calvin
Pryor bulled for 41 yards in 11
carries and Devon Thomas ran
for 16 yards in four tries.
Sandy Quinn led the defense
with seven tackles and five as-
sists. Arion Nickson marked up
four tackles and six assists, in-
cluding a quarterback sack. Jon
Elliott also had four tackles, with
five assists. Chris Enfinger was
credited for five tackles and two


assists, while Calvin Pryor had'
one tackle and five assists.
FRIDAY NIGHT
Friday night, the Sharks will
be on the road to Monticello to
meet the Tigers. The Sharks

The Liberty County Bulldogs
went wild in the second period of
last Friday's football game with
the Wewahitchka Gators, dump-

the District title and handed the
Gulf County team their sixth loss

season for the Gators.
The Gators managed only 92

ADULTS AND ORTHODONTICS


Teeth-straightening braces,
long associated with school-age
children, are now becoming
more popular with adults. The
American Association of Ortho-
dontists estimates that some 4
million Americans are undergo-
ing orthodontic treatment. Out of
this number, over 20% are over
age 20.
Why are so many adults sub-
jecting themselves to the ortho-
dontic regimen? There are sever-
al likely explanations. The
development of braces that are
less noticeable; the ability of
many adults to pay dental fees
that their parents, perhaps,
could not afford; a wider accep-
tance of braces by an adult gen-
eration attuned to self-
improvement; concern for good


health, and naturally, good
looks.
Until the mid-1960's it was
accepted wisdom in the field
that braces were for kids. The
theory was that orthodontics
could be successful only if the
patient was still growing. Now,
it's generally agreed that,
though growth is helpful, it's not
always necessary for effective
treatment. Today, you can pro-
duce the smile you've always
wanted, as the circus announc-
ers tout: "For kids of all ages."


Prepared as a public service
to promote better dental health.

Rotary's Charity Ball Saturday, Dec. 14


Port St. Joe's Rotary Club
will revive its annual Charity
Ball project this year and
present the popular holiday en-
tertainment Saturday, Decem-
ber 14, according to Dr. Jorge
San Pedro, chairman of the pro-
ject.
The Rotary Club started the
annual Charity Ball in the early
'60's and staged them every year
on the first Saturday in Decem-
ber, until four years ago, when
they moved the date to cooin-
cide with the New Orleans Mardi
Gras. The new date proved to be
not so popular, so the project


was moved back to its original
schedule. The high school foot-
ball playoffs have interfered with
the ball for the past two years,
causing the Club to cancel last
year's edition.
Adopting their former for-
mat for the Ball, the club has
contracted with a dance band to
play for the evening. The affair
will be held in the Centennial
Building, beginning at 9:00
p.m., and continuing until 1:00
a.m.
Proceeds raised from admis-
sion ticket sales will be used by


the club for its outside activities
with youth work and other pro-
jects the club engages in during
the year. One of the beneficiar-
ies of the Ball revenue will be
Boy Scout Troop 47.
Reservations may be made
in advance for a table at the Ball
by calling Rotarian Bill Sumner
at the Wewahitchka State Bank.
A limited number of tables will
be available.
Admission to the Ball will be
$20.00 per person if tickets are
purchased in advance. The duc-
ats will sell for $25.00 per per-


son at the door.
Ball chairman, Dr. San Pe-
dro, said door prizes will be giv-
en away during the evening.
Tickets may be purchased
by calling Rotarians. Several of
the members operate business-
es here in the City, and tickets
may be purchased throughout
the business day at their prem-
ises. These include Western
Auto [Dave May], Barrier Dunes
[Dan Troy], Piggly Wiggly [Rocky
Motley], St. Joe Furniture
[Wayne Taylor], Gulf Sands Mo-
tel [Bill Crawford] and The Star
[Wesley Ramsey].

and Travis Johnson placed fourth
at 15:57. Wade Beroset of Pensa-
cola Catholic placed fifth 16:00,
while Scott Boykin of Port St. Joe

- 35th (18:55), and Keith McDo-
nald 40th (19:09).


"I was very pleased with the
way we ran," praised Scott Gow-
an, coach of the team. "It was our
best meet of the season as each
of our runners recorded a new
personal best. We also set a new
school record with a team time of
88:37. Our goal for the meet was
to run under 90:00 and we were
able to accomplish this," contin-
ued Gowan.
On November 16, Port St. Joe
will host the District I Cross
Country Meet at St. Joseph's Bay
Country Club. The top two teams,
as well as the top five runners,
will qualify for the State Meet in
Jacksonville on November 23.
The teams that will compete in
the meet are Chipley, Marianna,
Pensacola Catholic, Port St. Joe,
and Quincy-Shanks.
"Our district is probably the
strongest in the state," stated
Gowan. "In the latest 2A rank-
ings, Quincy-Shanks is ranked
second, Marianna is fourth, Pen-
sacola Catholic is twelfth and
Port St. Joe is number 13. Also,
10 of the top 25 runners in the
state compete in this district. So
you can see how competitive the
district meet is going to be. The


meet will begin at 10:30 a.m. and
the cross country team would like
to invite everyone to attend," con-
tinued Gowan.

TEEN CREED
Don't let your parents down;
they brought you up.
Be humble enough to obey; you
may give orders someday.
Choose companions with care;
you become what they are
Guard your thoughts; you are
what you think.
Choose only a date who will
make a good mate.
Be master of your habits; or
they will master you.
Don't be a showoff when you drive;
drive with safety and arrive.
Don't let the crowd pressure you;
stand for something or you'll
fall for anything.
-Copied
Here are some scriptures that certainly endorse
this Teen Creed. Read them and obey: Ephesians
6:1, 2; I Corinthians 15:33; Proverbs 23:7; Exodus
23:1.

The church meets at the corner of

office is coordinating the pro-
gram. Here is how it works.
Between now and Friday,

nonperishable food items at par-
ticipating churches. If you are not


school is math and she would like
to be a doctor when she grows
up. Her favorite TV show is "Doo-
gle Howser, M.D."
If she could visit anywhere In
the world, she would pick Hawaii.
Her favorite book is Charlotte's
Web. Like her sister Teresa a few
weeks ago, Renece picked as the
person she admires, her Aunt
Lula. Renece likes to play with
her friends at school and says
school Is exciting. We're glad
Renece feels that way about
school.
We're Still Recycling
Yes, we still have the igloos
out back and we are soliciting
your recyclable items, such as
aluminum cans, 2 liter bottles,
and glass. Send them to school.
Our igloos are getting hungry.
Thank you.
Teacher Attends HRS Meeting
Third grade teacher Linda
Whitfield attended a meeting in
Port St. Joe on Friday with HRS
employees and other members of
the community. The purpose was
getting the "Wish Upon A Star"
program going. Christmas trees
will be placed in Port ST. Joe and
in Wewahitchka with ages and
gift requests of youngsters and
older adults for Christmas gifts.
This is a wonderful program
sponsored by HRS and has been
very successful for a number of
years. Jerri Todd is the coordina-
tor.
Veteran's Day Program
On Monday, the third graders
under the direction of Linda Tre-
main and Linda Whitfield paid
tribute to all the veterans who
served their country. We'd like to
give a special thanks to MSGT
Sidney E. Duffer of Tyndall AFB
who was our guest speaker, the
Wewahitchka High School band
under the direction of Terry
Stryker, and the ROTC Color
Guard from WHS. We would also
like to thank all who came to this
program. The air was chilly but
our spirits were warmed by our
proud heritage. All across the
land on Monday, programs were
held to honor our veterans and
we were proud to be a part of the
occasion. God bless our men and
women in the armed forces.
The elementary school hon-
ored all guests and veterans with
refreshments in the commons
area.
Last Week's
Student of the Week
Ten-year-old Silvia Daniels, is
in the fourth grade classroom of
Mrs. Esther Taunton. She is the
daughter of Mrs. Lisa Allen. Her
favorite subject In school is math.
Silvia would like to be a teacher
when she grows up. When asked
who she admired, she didn't hesi-
tate to say, "her sisters."
Silvia's favorite movie is All
Dogs Go To Heaven. If she could
visit anywhere in the world, she
would like to visit Oklahoma. At
school Silvia likes to play with
Mandy Sellers.
Silvia said this about herself,
'Well, my favorite hobbies are
swimming, running, and jumping
rope. I also like to play with my
sisters on our see-saw. Some-
times me and my sisters will turn
cartwheels." Silvia finished the
sentence "School is" by saying,
"School is great. Some people say
it's not, but they will just grow up
to be nothing if they don't go."
Amen.

and noon on weekdays.
On the 22nd the responsible
food gathering locations will deliv-
er the foot to Senior Citizens
where it can be assembled into
individual parcels for distribu-
tion.
Naturally we will need volun-
teers to deliver food throughout
the community. If you want to be
a part of this volunteer project,
call Mrs. Todd at the HRS office.
Her number is 229-6865. Food
items may also be dropped off at
the HRS office, located at the cor-
ner of Second Street and Hwy.
98, across from the Post Office.
In Wewahitchka
In Wewahitchka the plan is a
little different. Each congregation
is being asked to collect food
items and deliver them to West-
side Baptist Church on Monday,
the 25th, before 10:30 a.m. The
Rev. Michael Husfelt, pastor of
Westside Baptist Church, is the
president of the Wewahitchka
area Ministerial Association. He
can be helpful with details, call
639-2540.
Volunteer helpers will come
together at 10:30 on the 25th to
assemble the food parcels. The
next day the pastors will add the
turkeys and go out by twos to
deliver the baskets.
Four things are needed in
each of these communities. We
need the names and addresses of
the needy, we need volunteers,
we need food, and we need cash.
Can you help us by supplying
these needs? The blessing and
the reward of giving is yours to be
received.


FPC Seeking

Donations

for the Needy
With the cost of living rising
and federal assistance dwindling,
Florida Power Corporation is ask-
ing its employees and customers
in Bay and Gulf counties to help
those in need. Tucked Inside this
month's power bill is a request for
a donation to the Energy Neigh-
bor Fund.
The Energy Neighbor Fund
dispersed nearly $1,400, so far
this year, through the Gulf
County Senior Citizens Associa-
tion, Inc. in Port St. Joe. These
funds help local Florida Power
customers who find themselves in
a financial crisis...the working
poor, low income elderly, the
handicapped, or families experi-
encing an unforeseen hardship.
Donations pay an electric or gas
bill, or provide oil for the furnace.
'The economic crunch is
being felt in communities
throughout the state," explains
Wallace L. Barron, Director of
Customer and Energy Manage-
ment Services. "Tax-deductible
donations to the Energy Neighbor
Fund go much further because
the first $150,000 is matched dol-
lar for dollar by Florida Power
shareholder contributions."
The funds are sent directly to
non-profit agencies in the
counties from which they origi-
nated and none of the money is
used to pay administrative costs
of any kind.
On the pledge card, sent with
the November electric bills, cus-
tomers can Indicate a certain
amount be added to their electric
bills each month. A one-time
donation is also welcome.
The Energy Neighbor Fund
helped 12,000 families in 32 Flor-
Ida counties this year, with dona-
tions and shareholder contribu-
tions totaling $392,661.
