Solid Waste Experiment

Makes Suggestions to Cable TV Co. Owner


Work started late last week on clearing
the site to the rear of the St. Joe Papermak-
ers Credit Union building on Fifth Street, for
expansion of the financial institution.
The expanded facilities will face Wood-
ward Avenue and Sixth Street, to the rear of
the present building. The Credit Union pur-
chased property, recently, at the comer of
Woodward and Sixth to locate their expand-
ed facilities, to relieve crowded conditions
and expand services offered by the firm.
Wesley Atkins, manager of the Credit Un-
ion, said the .new facilities would include


County Wants

Recycle Bids
The Gulf County Commission
will attempt to take their solid
waste program a step further in
future weeks, by attempting to
contract with a firm to manage its
two landfills in the County, recov-
ering the recyclable materials.
The first in what will proba-
bly be several conferences will be
held Tuesday, February 11 in the
County Commission Meeting
Room beginning at 1:00 p.m.
The purpose of the confer-
ence is to attempt to secure.a
contractor who will operate the
two landfill locations, which ac-
cept trash items.
Firms will be offered an op-
portunity to bid on a work scope
which will include recycling and
scrap material disposal for the
County and landfill operations.
Any successful bidder must fol-
low state guidelines for handling
* 'and disposing of the solid waste
and recovering the recyclables.
William McGee, county opera-
tions director, said the County
hopes the recycling prospect and
a tipping fee, yet to be deter-
mined, will attract bidders who
will take all or part of the landfill
operations costs off the County.


three drive-through installations, a parking
lot, and possibly an automatic teller ma-
chine.
Atkins said the business is also going to
add new offices to the rear of their present
building. 'We'll expand our present building
all the way to the alley," he pointed out.
Florida Concepts, a construction firm
with headquarters in Clearwater. Is the gen-
eral contractor for the job. '"We ekpect-the-ex-
pansion to be complete within four to five
months," Atkins said.


One-Way

Status for

Third St.
Recently, the Port St.
Joe City Commission des-
ignated that portion of
Third Street, between
Highway 98 and Long Av-
enue, as a one-way street
to alleviate a growing
traffic problem in that
portion of the street. The
trqfflc problem was espe-
cially critical between
Reid and Williams Ave-
nues.
Installing the one-way
designation was delayed
until signs could be ob-
tained for the special
traffic flow pattern.
City officials say the
signs have arrived and
will be put into place Mon-
day afternoon of next
week.
Police Chief Carl Rich-
ter says the one-way traf-
fic flow.-west to east-
will go into effect Tues-
day morning.


PSJ Resident

Killed In Crash
George L. Sands, III, a Port
St. Joe man, became Bay
County's first traffic fatality of the
year early Sunday morning, when
his vehicle crashed, head-on,
with another car on U.S. 98, in-
side the Tyndall Air Force Base
reservation.
According to the Florida
Highway Patrol, Sands' car,
which was headed west on the
highway, crossed the center line
into the eastbound lane and
struck a second car driven by Roy
W. Nuckolls, 26, of Gulf Aire,
near Beacon Hill.
The collision happened at ap-
proximately 1:01, Eastern Time,
about three miles west of Mexico
Beach.
Sands, 39, a resident of 503
22nd Street, was pronounced
dead on arrival at a Bay County
Hospital. He had celebrated his
39th birthday on Saturday, the
day prior to his death. Nuckolls
was admitted to the intensive
care unit in critical condition.
Sands was a lineman with
Florida Power Corporation here in
Port St. Joe and Nuckolls is with
the engineering department of St.
Joe Forest Products mill.


The City Commission took
definite steps Tuesday night to
deal finally with the question of
cable TV service and solving the
growing question of what to do
with solid waste disposal. the
time of the City Commission
Tuesday night. The Commission
*has been involved in dickering
with Doug Feldman, owner of
Gulf Cable TV and with looking at
their options for handling its solid
waste disposal in the future, with
the County entering into an
agreement with a contractor to
handle transportation to the Bay
County incinerator.
The Commission has been
acting as the arbitrator between
Athe Gulf Cable TV and residents
fin the 'city who say they are get-
'ting abnormal service and paying
too much for it.
Feldman has been making of-
fers to the Commission, trying to
soften public opinion toward his
firm and the Commission has
been candid in its dealings with
the firm; saying It expects Gulf
Cable to perform to the satisfac-
tion of the people or its franchise
would be in jeopardy.
Feldman reported to the
Commission Tuesday night, that
his firm has just completed in-
stalling five new channels and
would be in the process of adding
at least five more during the next
couple of months.
c'We're going to send out a
*questionnaire, soon, in our bills,
asking for the customers to select


the channels they would most
like to see added to the system,"
Feldman said.
"All of this costs us money,"
Feldman said. 'We have to move
cautiously since we must satisfy
the bankers who hold our mort-
gage, other partners in the firm
who must approve of our actions
and of course, we must satisfy
our customers."
Feldman pointed out that
most TV watchers regularly look
at only four or five channels, "but,
all watchers don't watch the same
four or five channels," he said.
The cable representative said
his firm is also exploring the pos-
sibility of bringing in CBS pro-
gramming from a satellite. "CBS
stations are scarce in this area.
We just had Tallahassee and Do-
than as sources, with Dothan be-
ing the best source. Even so, Do-
than is 100 miles away and
variances in the weather disturbs
the picture at times," he said.
Mayor Frank. Pate started
some real "horse trading" about
this time, asking for a guarantee
from Feldman that his firm would
not raises service prices for five
years. Feldman had already
pledged not to raise rates for at
least a year. When Pate asked for
the five year guarantee, he
balked, saying, "I can't guarantee
you our prices won't go up in the
future. Our rates to the satellite
people, the stations and supplies.
are not constant. They are sub-
ject to increase and when they


do, we must raise our rates,"
Feldman said.
Pate said the rates were al-
ready higher than many other
firms in the vicinity and asked for
at least a three year guarantee of
constant rates.
Feldman said he would con-
sider all that had been said in the
dealings Tuesday night, consider
the longer period of time with no
rate increases and get back with
the Commission "in Just a few
days".
The Commission had offered
a renewal of the franchise and re-
duction of the franchise fee for
three years in order to allow Gulf
Cable to recover the costs of new
channels and improvements as
their part of the deal to obtain
satisfactory service.
Feldman said he appreciated
the City's offer and would confer
with his bankers and partners in
order to reach an agreement
SOLID WASTE
Frank Healy, the city's public
works superintendent, offered
three alternatives for the Commi-
slon to follow in handling its solid
Waste.
Healy had been asked to
come up with some suggestions
at the last meeting of the Com-
mission. 'You have three alterna-
tives, as I see it," Healy said Tues-
day. 'You can send two trucks to
the incinerator, daily; operate the
compactor on Industrial Road

Making Ready for Election


Supervisor of Elections Cora Sue Robin-
son has started getting her records and vot-
ing lists ready for the presidential election
series coming up during the year. Part of this
process includes purging the voting lists of
deceased and inactive names on the official
rolls and opening them up for new voters to
register.
Robinson said the county had some
7,321 registered voters last year, but some of
them were inactive and Florida law requires
her lists to be purged every election year.
Robinson has mailed out re-registration
cards to every voter on her rolls since the
first of the year. Voters who wish to keep
their status active, have only. to sign the
cards and send or bring them back to her
office to remain on the voting lists.
The Supervisor has compiled a list of ap-
proximately 103 registered voters who have
not voted recently, or made any response to
having their names remain on the rolls.
"These names will be removed, by law, un-
less they make some move to have their vot-
ing status reinstated prior to Saturday, Feb-
ruary 8," Robinson said.
"People wishing to reinstate their voting
status or who wish to register for the first
time may do so Monday through Friday at
my office in the Gulf County Courthouse or
at the Wewahitvchka City Hall," Robinson
said.


If you are unable to register Monday
through Friday, you may register to vote with
a deputy in your area.
Special deputies, and their locations are:
Louise Jones, Wewahlthcka.
Elizabeth Terry. Port St. Joe.
Sally Jenkins, Port St. Joe.
David Turner, County-wide.
Wyvonne Pickett, Cape San Blas.
Ruth and James Dumas, Port St. Joe.
Mary Lou Marshall, Indian Pass.
Lola Simmons, Howard Creek.
Tonya Knox, St. Joe Beach.
Voter registration may also be accom-
plished at the Public Library.
SPECIAL VOTER DRIVES
Two special voter drives will be held on
January 23, in a concentrated effort to regis-
ter young men and women who have just
reached voter age.
The registration books will be in the Port
St. Joe High School at 10:00 a.m. today.
Registration books and deputies will be in
the Wewahitchka High School at 11:30 a.m.,
EST.
Robinson said the final day for registra-
tion will be February 8. 'That's a Saturday
and the Courthouse is not normally open on
Saturday," she said. "I will have my office in
the Courthouse open all day until 5:00 p.m.,
on that day in order to register those who
wish to sign up."


Plant Nears Testing
Work is winding down on putting together the parts of an
asphalt plant, located just east of Port St. Joe, according to
Pat Patterson, in charge of the project for C. W. Roberts
Construction Company of Hosford.
The plant is located on the Louisiana-Pacific site, where
Capital Asphalt Company had its now defunct operation.
The Roberts company has purchased the plant now locat-
ed on the site, rebuilt and painted it and began erecting it
on the present site, recently.
Patterson said the plant parts are all in place now and
trial runs will probably begin about the middle or latter part
of next week. The plant should be in full production within
two weeks.
Part of the delay in paving streets and roads in south
Gulf County, under the County paving bond program, has
been due to the demise of Capital Asphalt and getting a new
plant on site and in operation.
Roberts had plans to purchase the Capital plant, but it
was sold in bankruptcy to a Wisconsin firm and moved out
of Gulf County.

No Difference

"I didn't come to stay. I came to make a difference," Governor
Lawton Chiles said In his state-of-the-state address last Tues-
day.
That statement sounded good, because It's the same reason
many voted for Chiles to fill the Governor's Mansion in Tallahas-
see. They trusted the man to do what was necessary to put Flori-
da back on track to becoming the best run state in the nation,
as far as service to its people goes.
The Governor has ridden on a wave of public trust and ap-
proval for months because of this platform; this promise of a
crusade.
The Governor said what all Governors, campaigning for the
office, have said for the past 20 years. "Florida Is failing to pro-
vide public services and goods at a price the tax payers could af-
ford to.pay," the voters were saying. They trusted Governor Law-
ton Chiles to carry out this public promise.
In some ways, Governor Chiles has performed as he prom-
ised, when he was running for office. For a sizeable number of
state programs, business goes on as usual raise taxes to
meet the expenditures, rather than re-arrange goals to meet tax
income.
We understand Florida is growing and needs to expand infra-
structure to adequately serve all these new people. But, surely
these new people are also paying some taxes; especially sales
taxes, which make up the cornerstone of so much of Florida's
budget income.
Increased tax rates and services which are bogging down
with inadequacy tells us that either the new people coming to
Florida are not paying their fair share of taxes at this time, or,
the additional tax revenues are being mis-handled. Revenues
should be increasing by the same ratio as the population. It has
never worked that way to any degree of success. We Just contin-
ue to increase taxes to pay for more services and never seem to
bother with why it is the increased number people to the state
are not paying their share of the load.
Some of this problem is caused by the hordes of people from
Caribbean nations coming to our shores through Florida, with
Florida picking up the tab. But, so much of the revenue shortfall
is caused by inept handling of tax income. So far, Governor
Chiles, we can't see all that much difference you or anyone has
made.

Take Care of Ours


Gulf County's operations director, Bill McGee recommended
to the Gulf County Commission last week that at least two per-
sons should be removed from the staff of the Mosquito Control
Department, which presently has some 20 people employed. The
recommendation was made even before the county officially con-
tracts with an independent, private firm to take over Its solid
waste collection duties.
The Mosquito Control operation was created, of course, to
combat mosquitoes in the County. At one time, they were a con-
siderable problem. Recently, the state of Florida quit financing a
portion of the operation, cutting-off much of the maintenance
program designed to prevent mosquitoes from breeding. More re-
cently, the department has had as probably its main purpose,
the handling of the County solid waste duties.
Now, with privatization of the solid waste duties, this release
of two men may be only the tip of the iceberg before the smoke of
changeover clears away.
The new procedure in handling the solid waste will effectively
chase some of the former Gulf County jobs away to Bay County,
since the prospective collector has headquarters in Bay County.
To be fair about the whole thing, the County Commission is
no more happy over losing Gulf County jobs than anyone else is
... even those who will eventually lose their jobs.
For this reason, we hope the Commission will doggedly de-
mand the new company hire Gulf County people to perform the
necessary duties in this county. We feel they will, but there's
nothing like expressing this necessity, vehemently, making it top
priority in the negotiations; not allowing it to be something
which seems to slip through the cracks in the furor of attending
to all the details of changing over.
Gulf County is not experiencing the worst incidence of unem-
ployment in the state of Florida. Neither is it experiencing the
best rate of employment. Our position is that we can ill afford to
lose any jobs. We certainly cannot afford to give them away to
Bay County, our large neighbor to the west. We are already re-
sponsible for a sizeable portion of their economy as It Is, without
giving them more by default.
Let's take care of our people first!

We Didn't Get Married,


But We Were Awful Close


( Kesley
U. Colbert
I speak of him often, I write
about him often, because I think
of him often. Me and Robert.
Holmes Brewer go way back. I re-
member Mother telling me that
she and Miss Hazel used to show
up on the same day In Dr.
Holmes' office for their six month
check-up, and their seventh
month check-up and their eight
month....... .
Mom said they'd sit next to
each other in that small waiting
room and discuss the possibilities
of the future. What would these
children grow up to be? What
kind of world would they find out
there in 10 years, in 20 years, in
30 years....... Would the two be
friends? What if one was a boy
and the other a girl? Could a
marriage loom in the future?
I was born on the 11th. Bob-
by, two days later. God took care


of that marrying question.
I don't remember "meeting"
him. He Just always was. I think
that's the way it is between life-
long best buddies.
Miss Katie Owenby headed
up a kindergarten at her house in
our little town. She'd pick us up
and take us home in her near
'bout mile long Country Squire
station wagon. Me and Bobby
fought over the back seat, driver
side window every day for a year.
He didn't give an inch, ever. I was
just as stubborn. Looking back
on it now, forty years later, that's
where the friendship began.
Bobby was smarter than the
rest of us. He's the one who fig-
ured out the spelling bees in the
third grade. We could keep
spelling the words correctly and
we'd have to stand in that line,
looking across at the girls all
morning. Or we could "miss" the
first word, sit down and kind'a
cool it while Hollis Mayo and Bob
Edwards verbally duked it out


with LaRenda Bradfleld and Bet-
sy Dinwiddle. Why. he used to
volunteer to go first when It was
the Bluebirds' time to read. I
thought he was nuts! Only girls
'wanted" to read first. Then I
caught on. When you finished
reading, Miss Belle would some-
times let you go to the back of the
room, where the clay was.
That same year I got a new
pair of penny loafers. Man, I was
proud of those shoes, I'd never
had a pair that didn't lace up.
And you remember this was back
when we bought'em a little big,
'cause they had to last us for a
while. First day I wear'em to
school, we're down in the bath-
room before the bell rang, kicking
field goals with those paper cups.
Bobby is the holder. I let go with
a fifty-yard attempt. My kicking
shoe flies off, goes over the parti-
tion separating the Janitor's sup-
ply closet and the bathroom, and
lands in a fifty-five gallon bucket
of liquid soap. We had to climb


the wall to get my shoe back.
We're saying the Pledge of Alle-
giance and soap Is oozing out of
my shoe. 1 can still Bobby two
seats over, doubled up with
laughter.
He used to get a charge out of
people that mispronounced my
name. "How can they look at K-E-
S-L-E-Y and say Kelsey? Are they
totally out of it, or what?" Then
he'd start that laugh........
We played on the same little
league team. I pitched, he was
the catcher. He didn't look any-
thing like Yogi Berra but you
know kids, everyone's got to have
a nickname. He's been Yogi ever
since.
His mother made the best
spaghetti. I loved to spend the
night over there. 'Course, he liked
it better at my house. We'd have
pillow fights like you wouldn't be-
lieve. We busted a pillow open
one night. When Mother turned
the light on to check on us, feath-
ers were floating all over that
room. After the obligatory lecture
and the half-hearted clean up job
and lights out and 'There'd better
not be another sound," we
laughed all night.
We'd take our Red Ryder B-B
guns and shoot a sparrow. We'd
"operate" on 4t in that shed be-
hind Yogi's house. We didn't want
it to go to waste so we'd end up
cooking it. We'd build a small fire
in a tuna can and place the bird
in another tuna can and lay it
sideways across, our oven. It was
the absolute worst tasting thing I
ever ate.
We discovered that with a lit-
tle potassium nitrate, charcoal
and sulfur we could whip up gun-
powder in no time. Mostly we
blew up those little green army
men........
Shining times.
I was pleased that he made it
back for our 20 year class reun-
ion. He'd been up in Alaska. I
hadn't seen him in probably 10
years or so. He looked the same
as ever.
"Hey, Yog." We shook hands.
"Can you believe that we paid
fifteen dollars to see Mary E. Pen-
dleton again." He started that
laugh I remembered so well........
The day after my birthday a
couple of weeks ago, I was head-
ed out back to the clock shed
when the phone rang. "Kesley, it's
for you.....some man."
"Hello."
"Kelsey."
We talked of dogs and hunt-
ing, of pillow fights and LaRenda
Bradfleld, cooking sparrows and
blowing up army men. Ricky had
moved to Alabama, we need to
have an old timers' game at the
field beside the pajama factory
and Larry Ridinger had dropped
completely out of sight. We talked
about his new office building and
how my boys were doing.
'Well, I'll let you go. I really
don't have much to say."
Yes you did, Yogi. Yes you
did.
Respectfully,
Kelsey


Pets Less Destructive, Cause Fewer Problems Than Many Human Beings


FOR SOME STRANGE rea-
son or other, it seems that most
of the strange people of the world
wind up in either Florida or Cali-
fornia.
I can't speak from personal
experience concerning California,
but I can understand, to a de-
gree, why they end up in Florida.
Both states receive nation-
wide billing as the "spas" of the
country. Perfect weather, the
playground of the beautiful peo-
ple, a desired place to be and a
haven for those looking for the
good life.
But, along with those who are
looking for the attributes of the
good life, come those who are try-
ing to come up with a more
strange life-style than their
friends and neighbors. These are
people who live differently from
your average next door neighbor.
They dress differently and deco-
rate their bodies in strange and
unusual ways. They wear their
hair differently, punch holes in


their face and bodies and hang
ornaments on them. Tattoos are
mandatory to be one of the "dif-
ferent" ones.
AN ARTICLE IN the paper
last week end, pointed to a move-
ment in California which would
require.. yes, require ... this
strange and different behavior to
be allowed in our neighborhood,
in our community, on our person-
al property, no matter what our
personal preferences are.
If the law is passed, property
owners in California can no long-
er refuse to rent their property to
j


people who live a lifestyle they
don't approve of, or who might
disrupt the tranquility or right to
determine the mode of living of
any other tenants they might
have on the property.
In other words, as one
spokesman in Santa Cruz, Cali-
fornia said, "We really don't need
government telling us to accept
what we don't agree with."
The law would no longer al-
low a property owner to refuse to
rent to hippies, surfers, punks,
homosexuals or people with a free
sex lifestyle, just because they
didn't want to subject their prop-


erty to these unusual lifestyles.

A PERSON CAN refuse to
rent to people because they have
children, pets, too many people
for the premises, who smoke, or
who refuse to pay their rent.
They cannot refuse to rent to
people who are scrungy, on dope,
drunks, play loud music, party
all night long, keep two or three
live-in women/men, or look like
freaks.
Even the U.S. Navy cannot
discriminate against women in
selecting crew members for sea
duty. As a result, that branch of
service has an unusual number
of pregnant sailor[ettes] on their
hands all because they can-
not deny sea duty for females.
One sailor, who opposes fe-
males on board ship says that af-
ter three or four months at sea,
there are no ugly females on
board.
I. suppose, that by the same


reasoning, there are also no ugly
men on board, either.

THIS BUSINESS OF not be-
ing allowed to deny services, ten-
ancy, employment or attendance
to certain people because of their
particular appearance choices
has served to encourage some of
the most outlandish dress and
style statements ever seen in our
nation... particularly our state.
For instance, it was just a few
years ago that a man-black or
white; straight or strange-would
not be seen in public wearing an
ear ring. A man just didn't do
such things.
Only a few years prior to that,
a man who was observed wearing
a necklace was thought to be just
a little limp-wristed. Women and
men looked on his eccentricity as
being just a little too much for
them to take.
Today, even straight men,
with a totally conservative ap-


pearance in dress, can be ob-
served with a necklace hung
around their neck. Is the ear ring
far behind?
All of this behaviour, which
would have been unheard of 20
years ago, is no longer ridiculed
as being "different".
Is it too much to expect that
forcing property owners to rent to
all lifestyles and persuasions
won't eventually erode our values
to the point of accepting these
things which are still considered
strange?
Public indifference has en-
couraged the incidence of unmar-
rieds of the opposite sex to live to-
gether with acceptance and it is
no longer considered a shame, by,
many, to be "different" in sexual
preference.
The average property owner
had probably rather rent to pets
than their masters. The pets
don't party all night, make rude
overtures to other tenants nor
walk off with the towels.

The Videophone Is Here
A short time before Christmas I purchased a cellular phone.
How neat It will be, I thought, to be riding along in my truck and
place a call to a friend or family member. Better yet, I thought, I'll
ride to a relative or friend's house and Just before I get there I'll
call them and tell them I'm coming to see them and when they
ask me when I'm coming I'll tell them "right now" and two min-
utes later, knock on their door.
It's been less than two months and already I'm sick and tired
of carrying that thing around, turning it on and off and making
sure my truck is locked so no one will steal it or break in and de-
molish my vehicle. Oh, it's convenient when I need it, but it's one
of these things I could have done without. Unlike the American
Express card, I now leave home many times without it.
Some of you may think I'm making this up, but several years
ago I predicted, in this very space, that it wouldn't be long before
several new, innovative items would be available to the American
public. As of this date, one is in the serious planning stage and
the paper today announced that another one, the videophone,
has become a reality.
AT&T will soon have the videophone on the market and it will
allow a caller to see the person at the other end of the line. It's
about the same size as the regular phone, according to the article
I read, but includes a 3.3 inch screen that has a tiny camera and
lens. It weighs about six pounds and all one has to do is plug it
into a standard phone Jack and you can see the person you
called or who called you.
The videophone may not be for everyone, however, because
one unit will sell for about $1,500 and the person you call must
have one for it to work. In other words, all you young men need
not rush out and buy one expecting to be able to call all,the good
looking girls you know when they are in the shower unless you
know that they have one, too.
AT&T demonstrated the system Monday with a call between'
actor Robert Wagner in Los Angeles' and his daughter Katie in
Manhattan. Officials believe the biggest appeal of the videophone
will be with families. This may be true, but I'll bet the next
biggest customer will be the porn industry. Porn dealers are get-
ting rich today with the 900 telephone numbers. Just think of
the possibilities when they are able to show live pictures.
It's a good idea, though, and I hope it becomes operational
soon. I, for one, hate to talk on the phone, especially to someone
I don't know. I have always wondered if some men are as mean
looking as they sound and if some women are as pretty as their
voice is over the phone. The videophone will erase all doubt be-
cause although the picture is small, it's transmitted in living col-
or.
There are endless possibilities, pro and con, and I can' hardly
wait to see how this new invention develops.
One of my other predictions, the highway sensor system, I
understand, is still being tested. This system, when completed,
will allow a motorist to set a computer in, his or her car for the
destination they desire and sit back and enjoy the ride. The com-
puter will route them, via sensors in the highway, to their desti-
nation. It will also control the speed, steering and braking and all
aspects of the driving process. This system will virtually eliminate,
accidents, speeding tickets and DUI's, unless there is a malfunc-
tion in the computer.
Maybe by the time the highway sensor system is operational,
AT&T will have a videophone for cars and we can talk to and look
at one another, no matter where we are.
My mother said it best years ago: "Lord a'mercy! What are
they:gging to think of next?"

* Funds Donated to Library
Mexico Beach Police Chief Jeff Sellers presented Mrs. Bob Faliski, Port St.
Joe Librarian, with a check for $500.00, Friday, to be used by the Library to pur-
chase supplies and learning aids.
The funds were part of a special law enforcement trust fund of the City of
Mexico Beach, and came from the sale of a confiscated vehicle and cash which
had been apprehended by the Department in the sale and trafficking of a con-
trolled substance..
Fallski said the money would be used to purchase videos and books to be
used by adults and young people as well as teachers.
Sellers said, "Hopefully our youngsters, as well as parents, will check this
material out at the public library and put it to good use."

Board of County Commissioners Has Worked Diligently


To the Editor:
The Gulf County Board of
County Commissioners has tried
diligently to bring more efficiency
and equity to the various opera-
tions of the County. The Board
continues with its efforts to
achieve these goals. The process
takes time, but the commitment
of the Board is firm.
In its effort to operate effi-
ciently, the Board has reviewed
the various operations of the
County and tried to determine
the appropriate work force to ac-
complish those operations. Over
the years, individuals have been
added to the work force without
being purged after a given task
was completed. In those areas
where the work force is greater
than needed to accomplish the
work to be done, the work force
has been appropriately reduced.'
In order to achieve some eq-
uity with regard to the consumers
of services bearing the expenses
for the services received, the
Board has reviewed the entire sol-
id waste responsibilities of the
' County. The Board was involved
in lengthy discussions and re-
views concerning the alternatives
for handling solid waste; particu-
larly, residential and commercial
garbage. The Board reviewed the
nature of services presently avail-
able and needed in the future. It
reviewed various Ways of financ-
ing the services. Everyone creates
garbage. The basic services need-
ed in order to handle that gar-
bage are collection, transfer and
disposal. The garbage must be
disposed of in a lawful manner.
There is no garbage disposal site
in the County. Therefore, it must
be collected and transferred
(transported) to an approved dis-
posal site.
After reviewing the various al-
ternatives, the Board determined
the most efficient way to handle
the collection, transfer and dispo-
sal of garbage was through an in-
dependent, private business firm.
Such a firm is able to take advan-
tage of large scale operations. Be-
cause it can specialize, 'it can pro-
vide efficient service at a reasona-
ble fee. Also, the firmnwith whom
the Board is negotiating has a
contractural commitment from
the operators of the incinerator in
Bay County for proper disposal.
Of course, a change in the
way solid waste is handled in the
County will result in various op-
erations and work force needs for
the County. It is anticipated the
contractor will take complete re-
sponsibility for providing the ser-
vices of collection, transfer and
disposal. It will not be necessary
for the County to spend public
funds to pay for these services.
Saving those public funds should
enable the Board to reduce taxes
or at least keep the cap on taxes
awhile.
The Cities of Port St. Joe and
Wewahitchka can participate in
the new system, if either chooses.
However, neither City is required
to become involved. Of course,
the rates to be charged would be
significantly reduced for all con-
sumers, if the Cities did partici-
pate.
Some of the obvious, immedi-
ate savings to the County would
result from the County not hav-
ing to operate the compactor
sites, not having to transport gar-
bage to Bay County and dot hav-
ing to maintain the work 'force at
its present level. The business
firm would transport the garbage
directly to Bay County without
the need to use the compactors.


It would use its own personnel.
However, it has made a commit-
ment to the County to hire dis-
placed workers from the County
to the extent possible.
Residents of the County
would be required to dispose of
their garbage in a lawful manner,
just as they are now required to
do. It is the personal responsibili-
ty of each resident and business
to see that garbage and other
waste are disposed of in a lawful
manner. The Board believes the
people of the County will abide by


the law.
All of the discussions con-
cerning the solid waste issues
have been open to the public at
the announced meetings of the
Board. Everyone is encouraged to
attend the meetings of the Board
and provide their own comments
and hear the plans, as they devel-
op and progress.
Sincerely,
Billy E. Traylor
Chairman
Gulf County Board of
County Commissioners


Remembers Class of 1982


To the Class of '82:
As we approach our 10 year
reunion this year, as a graduate
of Port St. Joe Jr.-Sr. High
School, I would like to first of all
give thanks to the good Lord
above for watching, caring, and
providing for us over these last 10
years. Second of all, I want you to
join me in remembering our
classmates during this 10 year
reunion. Some of them may not
be around to share this joyous
event, one name in particular.
Ashley Smith! A person whom I
shared many years together dur-
ing our childhood. His death has
been with me ever since it oc-
curred, and it will be with me for-
ever. Whenever I'm home, I al-
ways go by the cemetery to pay
tribute to a person who has left a
life time of memories with me.
And although he's not here on
earth with us to share this reun-
ion, I know he's above, looking
down at us, smiling and saying,
"Good Job Class of '82. My bless-

Reading to Small

. 0 Children Is Enjoyed


*-~.-


It has been stressed time and again how important it is to read
to small children. When parents do this, it accomplishes several
things. First, children are curious and want to know about books
and turning pages. Second, they learn to get information by asking
questions. Third, they begin learning to sit still for increasing peri-
ods of time. Fourth, it lets the child know he is important enough
for a parent to stop what he is doing and devote time to the child.
Perhaps some parents may not feel they can read well enough
to read to a child. Children's books can be very simple. Start by get-
ting a children's book you can read. Practice alone before you sit
down with the child. You can re-read the same book for a week or
two to a young child. They like the time and the closeness, not nec-
essarily the content of the book. While reading the book, you know
you can be preparing another one to read. The library can be a big
help to parents who need to change children's books and do not
want the expense of purchasing different books for children.
Story time makes a good slowing down time before going to bed.
You can not expect a child running full tilt to immediately fall
asleep when put to bed. A nice quiet story will be an aid to a more
quiet bedtime.
Three, four and five year old children like longer stories. This
helps them to learn to be quiet and listen. These are invaluable ac-
complishments when school time arrives.
Bedtime is not the only time parents can read to children.
Reading can help to pass the time waiting for the school bus, wait-
ing for any appointment, or help pass time while riding in a car on
long trips.

Miss Janet Lyn Sutton Becomes the Bride of


Ronald Wayne Shaw In Double Ring


Mr. and Mrs. Frederic Wilson
Sutton of Port St. Joe. The groom
is the son of the late Mr. and Mrs.
Marion Shaw of Dothan.
As the ushers seated the
guests, church organist Mrs. An-
neka Large played a prelude of
traditional music and accompa-
-nied soloist Jeff Keeson, who
sang There Is Love and Everything
I Do I Do For You after the mother
was seated.

Sutton. She wore a bridal gown of
Juliet style. The bodice was of
white velvet trimmed in appliqued
flowers. The skirt and train were

lace. Matching her gown, she

white silk mums, baby's breath
and mauve tiger lilies.

PAGE 6A THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE, FL THURSDAY, JAN. 23, 1992


First Grade
Tuesday, January 14, the
first graders got to drive a train!
Well, not really drive it, but at
least feel what it's like tol They
sat in the driver's seat of an en-
gine and rang the bell. The stu-
dents were impressed by the size
of the engines. Mr. Rish and Mr.
Chiles taught the first graders all
about being an engineer and driv-
ing trains. Thank you.

els vary). After they have worked

The Gulf County School Sys-
tem has announced the following
menus for the school lunch pro-
gram. Menus may change due to
availability of certain foods.

The terms "Global Reach" and
"Global Power" were the key
words introduced to the members
of the St. Joseph Bay Chapter,
Daughters of the American Revo-
lution, Wednesday, January 15,
at the Garden Center, by special
guest Colonel David L. Yates.
This year the Air Force will
undergo its most dramatic chang-
es since becoming a separate ser-
vice in 1947. Restructuring the
Air Force will meet the defense
needs of an ever-changing world.
It will strengthen the chain of
command and increase accounta-
bility. Most Importantly, it will en-
hance the combat capability
while increasing the peacetime ef-
ficiency.


Desert Storm were trained at Tyn-
dall. It also trains all air weapons
controllers in the Air Force. These
are the men and women who di-
rect the pilots to their targets,
from the ground or from airborne
warning and control system air-
craft or AWACS. These two vi-
tal training programs make Tyn-
dall deserving of the slogan, 'The
Home of Air Superiority." Tyndall
has the largest water range in
North America for conducting the
air superiority skills.
Tyndall, and all Air Force
bases, will feel the effects of the
restructuring program outlined in
"Global Reach Global Power."

Correction
The child listed as the winner
of the train from Mayhann's in
the 1/2/91 issue was named in-
correctly. Her correct name is Ju-
lie Butler.


10,000 miles away, it only re-
quires one re-fueling. The mission
reflects these requirement and
qualities. Colonel Yates reminded
the group that these missions
can be to protect sovereignty or to
help with natural disasters.
Colonel Yates praised the fine
community relations that provide
the outstanding quality of life for
the people stationed at Tyndall.
Native Panhandlers have
watched the 29,000 acres of land,
now called Tyndall, undergo a
radical change from water, sand,
and trees to a very sophisticated
Air Force base with a quality of
personnel and weapons.

Girl Scout membership in
Gulf County is booming, Denise
Hayes, Area Coordinator for the
organization, told the Kiwanis
Club Tuesday. "Girl Scout mem-
bership throughout the County is
now 148 girls and 18 adult work-
ers," she told the Club. This fig-
ures out to about triple the mem-
bership of last year.
Ms. Hayes said the troops are
very active throughout the
County and are involved in clean-
up activities at the St. Joseph
State Park, helping.with the Octo-
ber arts and crafts festival and
the Senior Citizens festival on De-
cember 7, here in Port St, Joe.
'They have adopted a portion of a
highway in the, County to keep
clean and serve in several Troop
programs throughout the year,"
Hayes said.
This year, 70 girls are already
enrolled to attend a summer
camping activity. Gulf County
Girl Scouts will be attending
summer camp in Camp Eleanor
near Panama City, St. Joseph
State Park here in south Gulf
County and at a Camp for All
Seasons near Tallahassee.
Hayes said the local Troop is
also involved in the annual Girl
Scout Cookie Sale, going on at

Lions Club
As mentioned last week, the
Port St. Joe Lions Club is having
a "white elephant" sale. For those
of you that may not be familiar
with the term "white elephant", it
is the same thing as a rummage
sale. It will be held on Saturday,
February 8, at the Centennial
Building from 7:30 a.m. until
12:00 noon.
One thing that was decided
at last week's meeting was to re-
quest anyone having an item or
two that they would ,like to do-
nate, to get in touch with any Li-
ons Club member. Donations
could be any item in your garage
or closet that is too good to throw
away, but not good enough to sell
individually. Please, no Junk.
This promises to be a very
good deal for all involved. All you
garage sale bargain hunters are
invited to attend and get some of
the best deals around. There will
be a moped, a 10-speed bike,
clothes, tools, gardening tools,
and all kinds of goodies.
Also, hot coffee and donuts
will be on sale for the early birds.
Anything to make a buck, but it
is for a good cause. All proceeds
will go directly into the welfare

Doyles Announce Birth of Son


Brad and Marah Doyle of
Callaway are the proud parents of
a new son, Jacob Culifer Doyle,
born January 19 at Bay Medical
Center, where Brad is employed
as an x-ray technician.
Jacob weighed 8 pounds, 4.5
ounces, and was 21 inches long.
He is the great grandson of
Charles E. (Ed) and Nelia Barker


Doyle of Wewahitchka, and the
great-great nephew of Joe and
Marie Barker Poole, also of Wewa-
hitchka.
Jacob was born four days af-
ter his great grandfather, Ed
Doyle's 70th birthday; that was
close.
Marah is the former Marah
Bryant of Twin Falls, Idaho.


From left, Colonel Davids L Yates, 325th Fighter Wing Commander, Leona Mahler, DAR member, and
Second Lieutenant Bryan Hubbard.


After viewing a video pre-
pared by the Air Force on its most
sophisticated equipment, Colonel
Yates began to tell the group
what impact this restructure will
have on the mission at Tyndall.
The biggest impact at Tyndall
occurring from the destruction
will be the consolidation of com-
mands. The Air Force will merge.
tactical air command, strategic
air command and military airlift
command into two commands -
air combat command and mobili-
ty command.'
The reorganization is a result
of lessons learned during Desert
Shield and Desert Storm and en-
dorsed by many of the leaders of
that war such as one of Tyn-
dall's former commanders, Lieu-
tenant General Chuck Homer.
Tyndall will become a part of
the air combat command, which
will be established later this year
at Langley Air Force Base, Virgin-
ia. The air superiority mission
will remain the same. Tyndall will
continue to train pilots and air
weapons controllers to ensure the
success of air combat anywhere
in the world. While most bases
are being reduced, and others
closed, Tyndall is actually making
a gain of about 300 people. It is
expanding its mission and it is
the sole source for two of the Air
Force's most important training
programs.
Tyndall trains all the F-15
Eagle pilots in air superiority
skills, and very proud of the fact
that 10 of the 17 Air Force pilots
credited with missile kills in

WEWAHITCHKA, 55
GRAND RIDGE, 54
For the second time in a
week, the Wewahitchka Gators
have scored in the final second of
a game, on free throws, to win a
basketball game.
Tuesday night, the Gators
pulled one out of the fire against
the Grand Ridge Indians, with Ja-
son Jackson sinking two free
throws, with less than 24 sec-
onds left in the game, to give his
Gators a 55-54 win over the Indi-
ans. It was the Gators fourth Dis-
trict win of the season.
The Gators had a thin 25-24
lead at half time, but a wild third
quarter saw the Indians go on the
attack with an 18 point surge.
The Gators answered with 19
points of their own, increasing
their lead to two points. The Indi-
ans got back one of these points
in the final period, but Jackson's
two charity shots saved the day
for the home team.
Marcus Lawton led the Ga-
tors with 25 points for the night
Corwin Anderson added 12 and
Chris Jackson had 11. '


The Sharks held their annual
banquet to culminate the 1991
football season last Thursday eve-
ning at Port St Joe High School.
After enjoying a delicious dinner
awards were presented to junior

tion was Calvin Pryor who
received the linebacker, running
back, captain and senior scholas-
tic award. He also was presented
certificates recognizing his selec-
tion to the first team All State AA
and the first team All Big Bend.

weekly, to the incinerator, or you
can negotiate with the County's
contractor to take over your solid
waste program."
The public works superinten-
dent said that preliminary studies
have indicated that the City's
least costly avenue would be to
operate the compactor and go
into an active program of encour-
aging people to separate table
garbage from items which can go
to the Five Points landfill.
"If we can get the cardboard
separated, we will be in good
shape," Healy told the Commis-
sion. "Presently the handling of
cardboard takes up 30% of our
costs and 48% of our volume," he
said. 'This means we're paying


more to get rid of cardboard than
we are collecting in fees. The good
part is that the cardboard is one
of the easiest materials to haft-
dle," he said.
RECOMMENDS
Mayor Pate suggested the
City follow Healy's recommenda-
tion for five months, keeping a
close scrutiny of costs involved.
The five month experiment will
show where any necessary rate
changes are called for, or if the
City can stay in the business,
charging reasonable fees.
Healy said the rates are al-
ready out of balance. 'You're not
charging enough for commercial
service and if you were, you could
probably lower your residential
rates," he pointed out

DENTURES HANDLE WITH CARE


When is the most dangerous
time in the life of dentures
(sometimes called false teeth -
but not by dentists)? The most
dangerous period is when your
dentures are out of your mouth!
Dentures should be handled
carefully when they're out of
your mouth. Dropping them even
a few inches into a washbowl
can break them. Hold your den-
tures over a towel or a basin
half-filled with water. Then,
should they slip from your hand,
there will be a cushion to help
prevent damage.
When dentures are out of
your mouth for any length of
time, they should be placed in
water or a cleansing solution. If
they become dry, they can warp.


Dentures should NEVER be
placed in hot water. Hot water
can warp the plastic.
If your denture does break,
do not try to put it together your-
self. Solvents found in some
glues can damage denture plas-
tics and irritate your mouth. It is
almost impossible to precisely
align broken parts. If you try, the
denture will fit poorly and be
useless or, even worse, harmful.
Go directly to your dentist for re-
pair.

Lack of Nitrogen Is Common

Plant Growth Can be Improved by Applying This Chemical


By Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Director
One key to successful land-
scaping in Florida is making sure
your soil contains enough nitro-
gen. Deficiency of this element is
the most common nutritional
problem affecting woody orna-
mentals in our state. Almost
without exception, plant growth
can be improved by applications
of nitrogen.
Nitrogen is needed by woody
ornamentals in greater amounts
than any other eement Nitrogen
allows plants to synthesize amino
acids, the building blocks of pro-
tein. Unfortunately, supplies of
this vital element are very low in
Florida soils.
As I said, the supply of nitro-
gen which Is naturally available
to plants is very limited. This
problem is compounded by the
fact that any nitrogen we add as

fertilizer is soon leached away by
water rapidly draining through
our sandy Florida soils. Also, if
your home is located on land
where vegetables or other crops
were grown for years, the soil al-
most certainly lacks adequate ni-
trogen.
If you notice a uniform loss of
green color from plant leaves, you
can suspect nitrogen deficiency.
This loss of color may vary from
pale yellowish-green in the early
stages to almost ivory, if the prob-
lem is not corrected. In addition
to a loss of green color, a lack of
nitrogen will cause leaves to be
thinner and smaller than normal,
and there will be fewer of them.
Nitrogen deficiency affects
leaves all over a plant, but yellow-
ing is worse on the fruiting
branches. If a plant is severely af-
fected, its foliage will become
quite sparse, and quite a bit of
dead wood will appear. Nitrogen
deficient plants grow slowly, if at
all, and they are quite susceptible
to cold injury. So, as you can see,
this ailment can be quite detri-
mental, threatening a plant's very
survival.
Working some organic matter"
into the soil will help hold nitrio-
gen better. However, we must
point ,out that organic matter
alone won't clear up a nitrogen
deficiency; You can't add enough
organic material to restore proper
plant growth. The emphasis is on
the word "hold." Added organic
matter merely reduces leaching,
by improving the soil's capacity to
retain moisture.'
To correct nitrogen deficien-
cy, you'll have to add the element
to the soil.. There are three ways
this can be done. You might
choose to supply nitrogen in a ba-
sic garden fertilizer, such as 8-8-
8. You could use a high nitrogen
content fertilizer, such as a 16-4-
8. Or, you might decide to add ni-
trogen alone, using something
like ammonium nitrate.
If you use a basic .garden fer-

Men


ph Smiley

Recently, young men of "Pro-
ject Mold A Male" were involved in
a two-and-a-half hour "Leader-
ship Development" workshop
here in Port St. Joe, conducted by
Joseph Smiley II.
The activity was part of a
continuing program sponsored by
the New Gulf Coast Association,
and M&E Florida State Conven-
tion. It is designed to foster inter-
action between young men and
positive male role models. On a
regular basis, workshops are held
and a theme discussed based on
an identified need of the group.
Mr. Smiley discussed what it
takes to be a good leader by ex-
ploring three subtopics. First, he
cited disclaimers to the myths
that leadership is just for a select
few. Next, he listed five attributes
of a good leader with emphasis on
the fact that these can be devel-
oped. Last, he gave the funda-
mentals for being an effective
leader.
Refreshments for the occa-
sion were furnished by Mr. and
Mrs. Paul Gant, Annie G. Baker,
Andreameta Smiley, and Cleo
Bess. It was hosted by the local
chapter leader, Chester Gant, Jr.
at Zion Fair Baptist Church.

read throughout his life.
Guralnik also recounts the
battles between Brahms and his
critics who insisted on comparing
his work with that of Wagner and
Beethoven.
'Though normally considered
the foremost classicist of his
time, Brahms was very much a
man of the Romantic Period. As
such, his 'classicism' was shaped
by both his own experiences and
the romantic spirit of his age,"
Guralnik says.
Guralnik's unique "music-
drama" is to be the first of three
presentations to be sponsored by
the Gulf Coast Community Col-
lege Foundation in its 12th "Great
Performers" series.
"From the Blues of Broadway"
will be presented on February 10,
and "By: Georgel America Salutes
Gershwin" will be conclude the
series on March 16.
Advance tickets for all perfor-
mances,are on sale at the GCCC
Bookstore for $6.00 each. Cur-
tain time is 7:30 p.m. CT.


Space Camp Will
Take Reservations
With an emphasis on new
programs for parents, children
and teachers having fun with
space science education, U.S.
SPACE CAMP in Florida is now
accepting reservations for the
1992 season.
SPACE CAMP in Florida is lo-
cated in Titusville with the U.S.
Astronaut Hall of Fame and is ad-
jacent to the Kennedy Space Cen-
ter on Florida's Space Coast.
SPACE CAMP has graduated
more than 15,000 students since
opening in 1988 and continues to
create new programs to meet the
needs of space enthusiasts of all
ages.
Campers from all 50 states
and many foreign countries at-
tend the Florida camp each year
and some are fortunate enough to
view a space shuttle launch from
the rooftop observation deck.
Many school districts recognize
SPACE CAMP as an educational
opportunity and permit excused
absences to attend sessions dur-
ing the school year.
Adjacent to the SPACE CAMP
Training Center, the Astronaut
Hall of Fame opened in 1990 and
offers campers and visitors an in-
side look at the exciting early
days of the space program.
Applications are now being
accepted for 1992 sessions of
U.S. SPACE CAMP, Parent and
Child Weekend and Space Acade-
my for Educators. For more infor-
mation call (407) 267-3184 or 1-
800-63-SPACE.

Gulf In


Disaster


Loan Area

Thomas M. Short, U.S. Small
Business Administration (SBA)
District Director, announced that
Bay, Gulf, and Santa Rosa
counties, and the contiguous
counties pf Calhoun, Escambia,
Franklin, Jackson, Liberty, Oka-
loosa, Walton, and Washington in
the State of Florida have been de-
clared an Economic Injury Disas-' '
ter Loan (EIDL) area. ...u
According to Short, the de-.
laration is due to the severe and
adverse impact on the fishing in-
dustry caused by excessive rain-
fall and flooding which began.
January 1991 and continued'
through August 1991. These con-
ditions resulted in reduced repro-
duction, altered migration pat-
terns, and retarded growth.
Eligible small businesses that
are experiencing difficulty paying
bills and meeting current expens-
es, as a result of the declared dis-
aster, are encouraged to inquire
about these. loans. Loan funds
cannot be used for refinancing of
long-term debt or to provide capi-
tal which was needed prior to the-
disaster. The interest rate is 4
percent and loans may be for up
to 30 years. Actual loan amounts
and terms are set by SBA based
on each applicant's financial con-
dition. The maximum loan to a
business is $500,000.
Short advised, that loan appli-.
cations and program information
is available by calling toll-free 1-
800-359-2227. SBA loan officers
answer these telephones on week-,
days from 8:00 a.m. until 6:00.
p.m. ET. Applications are also
available by writing the Small,
Business Administration, Area 2 -
Disaster Assistance, One Baltl-i
more Place, Suite 300, Atlanta,;
GA 30308.
The economic injury loan ap-
plication filing deadline is Sep--
tember 28, 1992.
