Construction of



Dune Walkover



Raises Clamor.

County Project At St. Joe Beach

Questions, "Is Beach Private?"
A County project which was thought to be an asset to the
public by the County Commission, has turned out to be a point
of contention by at least one land owner at Yon's Addition at St.
Joe Beach.
Commissioner Ed Creamer said, "I thought I was doing the
folks at St. Joe Beach a favor by getting them out of the prickly
pears when I agreed to build a dune walk-over before the DER
decided they shouldn't be allowed."
But the dune walk-over, at St. Joe Beach on a portion of the
beach where building is forbidden by deed restrictions, is evolv-
ing from a 'favor" to a point of contention.
Attorney Tom Gibson, who has a home in the area, filed an
objection to the structure Tuesday, saying, '"The walk-over will
attract traffic to the beach. This is not a public beach. It is
owned by the Property owners in the Subdivision. By putting in
the dune walk-over you make It public property."
Creamer said, "I'm sorry, I honestly thought I was doing the
people out there a needed service. I suggest that we stop con-
struction until we get an expression from the residents, whether
or not they want the walk-over."


Gulf County stopped work on this dune stopped until the Board hears input from
walkover at St. Joe Beach, Tuesday, after residents in the area. Both pros and cons
an objection was aired. It will remain have been heard thus far.


Municipal

Election


One resident of the area, who was at the meeting, Crawford IVTa 1
Jackson, said, "Well. I like it. It gives us an access to the beach. MTay7
We used to go through the street ends to the beach until they With the national, state and
were sold to private owners. Now, we have to get there the best county elections getting in full
way we can." swing, the low-key City elec-
tion almost goes unnoticed.
Attorney Bob Moore gave the Commissioners an opinion, But, Port St. Joe is going to
when queried whether or not the strip of beach was a public have an election, too, on May
beach or private. Moore said, 'There is no way you can consider 12.
the beach private because of the precedent which has been set Two of the staff of four
over the years. It has not been posted, nor has the public been Commissioners and a Mayor-
'denied use." Commissioner will be up, for

McGee

Chairman Traylor
Says It Just
Didn't Work Out
Acting on Chairman Billy
. Traylor's recommendation, the
Gulf County Commission dis-
missed its Special Projects Direc-
tor, Bill McGee, Tuesday.
Traylor said, in making his
motion, that McGee "Hadn't
worked out to the benefit of'the
County." Commissioner Al Ray re-
marked that. "It has been six
months since we'. hired McGee
and we agreed to take a look at
his position after six months and
make an evaluation."
Nathan Peters, Jr., strongly
opposed releasing McGee saying,
"He has done a very good Job.
Some of his actions have not set
good with me, but they have
made me a better Commissioner.
He was correct in his decisions."
With Peters prodding the
Chairman as to specifically why
he was making his recommenda-
tion, Traylor replied, "All right, I'll
be specific." Traylor then went
into an explanation as to why he
had made his recommendation.
"First," Traylor said, "He
wasn't always correct in his deci-
sions. His decisions caused Gulf
County more problems than they
solved. The main reason I am rec-
ommending his dismissal is be-
cause he came to us with a work
plan on the final day allowed us
by DER; telling us what we had to
--..do in. regards to.our-new landfill.
This was the day before we were
to have it done. Why didn't he tell
us in the two or three months be-
'fore? I have reports that this pro-
ject will take until the end of the
year to complete and we know
about it on the day it is to be fin-
ished."
The chairman went on to say,

County Assesses

Tipping Fee At



Landfill Sites


Gulf County will initiate a sol-
id waste tipping fee at its two
landfill operations effective May
18, with the promise of more to
come.
The tipping fee will be levied
against commercial and industri-
al customers only, initially, with
individual citizens continuing to
get a free ride for solid waste dis-
posal.
Commercial users will be as-
sessed at a rate' of $25.00 a ton.
Estimates are that commercial
users supply about 62% of the
County's solid waste load.
Commissioner Charles Fort-
ner opposed the plan, saying pri-
vate citizens should pay their fair
share. "When we went into this
program, we talked about making
a service supported by a user fee.
This isn't user fee supported," he
said.
Commissioner Nathan Peters
said the free service was decided
upon by the investigating com-
mittee making the recommenda-
tion, to discourage dumping gar-
bage in the 'woods. Under the
plan, individual homeowners
would only have the responsibili-
ty to haul their solid waste to the


landfill.
Out-of-county construction
firms were discussed and it was
pointed out that they were haul-
ing to Gulf County landfills be-
cause the service was still free in
Gulf County. Other counties have
a tipping fee already in place, es-
pecially Bay County, where most
of the construction debris is com-
Sing from.
Landfill operators were in-
structed to immediately begin a
program of asking where vehicle
drivers lived. "If they live any-
where but Gulf County, we
should refuse to let them dump
their waste material," said chair-
man Billy Traylor.
Sheriff Al Harrison said in re-
cent weeks they have refused to
allow dumping by out-of-county
firms. "We caught one of them
dumping a load in the woods
near the County line," Harrison
said.
Those firms performing work
in Gulf County will be allowed to
dump their debris after giving
proof of where they are working.
All other construction debris will

Curbside
The City Commission is considering a revolutionary change
in the way of doing things. Revolutionary, that is, for Port St.
Joe. They are considering curbside collection of garbage in the
very near future. This will be a major departure from the time-
honored method of picking up garbage from the rear of the home
and carrying it to the garbage truck or, where there are alleys,
picking it up and dumping it in the truck.
Economics and the necessity to separate the trash from the
garbage makes it necessary to change from one method to an-
other.
Really the change isn't all that drastic. Like the TV commer-
cial which shows a mechanic making his case for proper mainte-
nance, 'You can either pay me now or pay me later." With the
City it's either pay them to do it now, or pay a garbage collection
firm to do it later. No matter how much the City Commission
likes or dislikes the matter, it is a collection method whose time
has come.
Port St. Joe is probably the last modem City in the state of
Florida, which sends men to your back yard, dumps your gar-
bage collection can into one he carries on his shoulder and then
carries your garbage to the loader-packer in the street. Nobody
else offers that kind of personal service any more.
Collection will be made easier and safer. It's not the most
pleasant of tasks or desirable, either, for a sanitary service em-
ployee to be going into. someone's yard in the pre-dawn hours.
Collection at the curbside would remove many objectionable ac-
tivities and solve many complaints.
Ten or fifteen years ago, the City considered this method of
handling garbage with the thought of eventually working into
mechanical pick up, but it was trashed at the time because the
City would have to purchase the special garbage cans.
Well; today that time has come. Look for it to happen in the
very near future. If the City remains in the garbage service, they
are going to have to shave some costs so the other substantial
expenses can be met. This is one way of doing it.




Revitalization
Port St. Joe is planning to join the 20th century with its
downtown. It might be two or three more years in doing it, but it
is coming. The Downtown Revitalization concept is coming to
fruition after nearly two years of planning and getting it off the
ground.
-- A keen eye would tell you that downtown Port St. Joe is old-
fashioned in appearance. It has no pizzazz; no attraction; no
magnetism. It looks like a small city looked like 40 years ago.
That isn't to say that it is bad to look like a small city did 40
years ago. Some small cities look exactly as they did 100 years
ago!
But we can do better. We will do better.
The City Commission has approved a concept which a local
committee has adopted through many meetings with the Univer-
ty of Flo ld'a Architectural Department. Attempting to somehow
work into the theme that this is the Constitutional City, the Uni-
versity planners, headed up by Dr. Peter Prugh, has arrived at a
method of doing it. Reid Avenue will transformed into a histori-
cal thoroughfare, complete with landscaping..
:' The sidewalks will be changed from a cement ribbon running
from one end to the other, to one with every other panel having
an interesting pattern built in the system containing a plaque of
some such reminder of a historical importance to the town.
The street will be given a warm and liesurely atmosphere
with greenery and trees interspersed the length of the street. The
intersections will be given special treatment, to allow for access
by handicapped, make them safer for pedestrians and drivers
alike. At the same time, the intersections will become islands of
beauty rather than vistas of decay.
Drainage on the street is to be given special attention, which
vill alleviate a very special problem in downtown Port St. Joe.
The changes to be made will be functional as well as decora-
ive.
Changes can be made without damaging the concept of the
,plan. Go by the City Hall at your liesure during the next two or
Three weeks and take a look at what has been prepared. Make
!recommendations if you have any to make.
Above all, be positive.' If you make changes, have a reason for
,making them which will add to the overall scheme of things. We
are hoping the entire business area can receive this special
'treatment before revitalization is complete.

other spring, another of Cathy's
sisters is getting married. It's
kind'a like those swallows that
keep returning to San Juan Ca-
pistrano.
"Hurry up, we're late! Every-
one else is already at the church."
Cathy had been excited about .the
"big event" for eleven months.
That's about six months before
the bride and groom knew about
it. Cathy just "had a feeling." As
we pulled into the church for the
rehearsal thing, I made a mental
note to talk to the as-of-yet-still-
unmarried-sisters. They need to
move closer to us. I'm tired of
these long distance weddings.
I've met the "prospect", as the
girls call'em, a few times. He's a
nice guy. And I hope he's in the
grocery business. I've seen Jo
Blair eat. Why, one Thanksgiving'
we built a big fire out back and
cooked the dressing in a wheel-
barrow. There were so many of
them when they were kids, they'd
eat in shifts. Joby managed to
make the early and late lunch
every da-
'What if she asks about the
tuxes?" Sometimes I can upset
my wife by Just being practical.
There are two rules at a Cotham
wedding. They hold'em in the
spring and my boys must be
in'em. Listen to this, I was sup-


tended the Festival, held under the huge oak trees on the
shores of Lake Alice. The Festival attracted numerous
booths selling crafts, food and of course, tupelo honey.

pose to drive Josh and Jess to
Panama City to the tux measur-
ing place so Cathy could phone
the correct numbers to Jo Blair
who would then relay them to a
tux renting place in Memphis.
You ever rented a tuxedo that ac-
tually fit? I got out my trusted 25
foot Stanley tape and told Josh to
stand up and stick out his arm.
Jesse called me the T-M-M the
Tux Measuring Man. Cathy called
me something else
We wheeled in just a few min-
utes after, seven. I, also have a
rule about Cotham weddings.
Never get there before you abso-
lutely have to. You arrive in town
a day or two early and you can
get caught up in the frenzy. Alan
and Jo Blair were waiting in the
parking lot. I had allowed time for
the hugging and kiss-
"Jo Blair, you've lost weight."
'Yes, Kes, how do I look?"
Well, I wanted to say, 'You
look skinny," but I knew Cathy
would not think that a sociably
acceptable response. "Great, you
look great!" I also was dying to
ask her how much she'd lost, but
that too, would be considered a
faux pas. I knew how she lost it,
evidently they only had one sit-
ting for lunch in Memphis -- and
no wheelbarrows.
The rehearsal went without a
hitch. Well, the lady in charge did
raise an eyebrow when she was
going over lighting the candles
with the boys and I told Josh to
please not knock any candles off
like the last time. "And son, if you
do, for goodness sakes, stomp the


fire out!"
Poor Alan looked nervous,
and this was just the rehearsal.
The first song lhe guy with the
twelve-string guitar played
sounded vaguely familiar. Cathy
leaned over and took' my hand.
"Honey, do you remember that
song?"
'Yes, dear."
"They played it at our wed-
ding."
Whew, that was closet
Now folks, Jo Blair and Alan
didn't Jet. me ,dpwn. They, know_
how., I, hate ,, tli'se places .with'
three-pronged forks and white'
gloved waiters. Rehearsal dinner
was at a world-famous barbeque
place in the heart of the Queen
City. I had a double order of ribs
and the barbequed shrimp. Jo
Blair ordered a small plate of
ribs. I literally fell out of my chair
laughing. Cathy was mortified. I
understood Joby's plan. It's the
before and after syndrome. You
know, before the wedding it's, "'I'll
have the half order please," A
week after the marriage it's, "HEY
HARVEY, RUN THAT WHOLE
HOG OUT HERE"
Wedding day! They all came.
They always do. Aunt Kay and
Aunt Jane, Dudley, Karen and
Geneen, Genia and Bill, Uncle
Bud and Barbara, Aunt Doris
and... well, you get the picture.
And of course, everyone brought
their children. I noticed Alan kept
eyeing'em as they came, in. I
didn't say anything to him. I
knew how he felt. Yes, you get the
whole package!
"Kes, Jo Blair wants you,"


I knew before I ever got back
there. The picture guy had asked
for the father of the bride. Now,
I'm not the father, Mr. Cotham
had died years ago. But I married
the oldest sister. I remember Jo
Blair just out of diapers. I
watched her grow up. And on this
very special day in her life, she
remembered me. It was the
proudest picture I've ever stood
for.
I was telling Mary Claire, who
is four, when her time comes, to
Srun, off,.and get. married as Josh
Iand Jess started down to light
'thie candles. TIhe wedding went
better than the rehearsal, Jess
didn't trip over his just slightly
extra long pants and the bride
and groom looked radiant. Gay,
another sister, didn't drop the
ring. Bobby Brown, the only
brother, gave the bride away with
his usual grace and dignity. Jesse
calls him the G-A-M. And we set-
tled back to hear the vows.
"Do you Jo Blair-"
"I will."
"take Alan to be your-"
"I will."
."lawful wedded lus-"
"I will." \
Of all the Cotham girls, Jo
Blair is without a doubt, the
pushiest.
We were leaving the reception
when it hit me, 'You know, we've
been in Memphis for two. days
and we haven't seen Elvis."
Jess raised up from the back
seat, '"Well, he's the only one that
didn't come to the wedding."
Respectfully,
Kesley


i This Younger Generation Doesn't Pay Much Attention to Deadlines


YOU LET A hurricane churn

A few years ago, when Kate

;deadline on it and there's no such
thing as us not making a dead-
line.

we were getting things in shape
so we could go home and batten

electricity would be off for a peri-
od of time and we were getting
.things in shape to leave.
Well, about 1:30 that day,
UPS came knocking on the door
in the wind and the rain, to make

Wewahitchka before he could call
it quits.
It was bad outside, let me tell
you;
THEN, THERE'S THE time
when my youngest daughter, Car-
ol, was born. I told Frenchie she
couldn't have the baby on press
day, because nothing took prece-
dence over printing day.
That's part of becoming a
newspaper person.
Well, to make a long story
short, Frenchie decided to go into
labor about 1:00 p.m. on the day
the paper went to press. There
was nothing I could do except


take her by the hospital and leave
her with the admonition, "I'll be
back when the paper is out."
Back during those days,
printing the newspaper could
take all night long Now, it's usu-
ally done by 4:00 or 5:00 in the.
afternoon, with the papers all
mailed and most of the clean up,
afterward done.
It's nothing like the old days .
except the deadline still
takes precedence.
THAT'S WHAT MAKES this
tale more than a little unusual.
The first of the week, our
typesetter's Pekingnese had pup-


pies. It had two little offspring,
which looked like drowned rats.
Monday, Lisa phoned in and
said, "I'll be a little late, my dog is
trying to have puppies." Monday
is a long way from the deadline so
that caused no problem.
Monday afternoon, after
lunch, she came back a little later
along with a cardboard box, a
heating pad, and a towel, all
wrapped around a miniscule ball
of fur. The little urchin was born'
with a harelip and couldn't nurse
the mother dog.
She had to feed it with an eye
dropper.
Well, the women in the office
started keeping vigil over the un-
fortunate little pup. Wednesday,
they were still at it and it was
deadline time.
For the first time in our
newspaper career, something
took precedence over the dead-
line.
Every hour or two, everything
came to a screeching halt while


the puppy was fed.
Shirley warmed milk. Lisa
nursed the puppy. Carol rubbed
its little head. Shannon looked
on, saying, "Isn't she the cutest
little thing?" Frenchie Just
clucked around and Aleta fluffed
up the towel in the dog box.
These women got into the
swing of things, just ignoring the
deadline.
THIS HAS GONE on all week
long. The little harelipped Peking-
nese has negated the importance
of a deadline, where once it was
sacred! You don't dare die on
printing day! And, here we are
bringing all production to a halt,
except for what is being done by
the sensible men of the firm,
while a Pekingnese is fed.
The computers are stopped.
The pages stand waiting for some
type. Nothing moves
If the bank has to foreclose
on us because we didn't do
enough work to pay the mort-


gage, how will I explain it? Do I
say, "a harelipped Pekingnese
puppy is the reason I can't pay
my mortgage." Or maybe I will
have to report that, some of my
employees have lost the sanctity
of the deadline.
Maybe, sometime before that
happens, the puppy will learn to
eat by itself, regardless of its
handicap.
THEY SHOULD BE like my
grandson. His kindergarten class
hatched some eggs for the Easter
season. They hatched out last
Thursday or Friday. Every child
wrote a report on his particular
chick.
He had a deadline for the re-
port But before the deadline
came, his chick died. He never
missed a beat. He sat down and,
in his kindergarten print, wrote,
"My chick is dead."
He put a green cover on the
report, handed it in and got an
"A". The funeral didn't Interfere.

Thanks A Lot
On December 22, 1985 my family and I moved'back into our
home at 818 Marvin Avenue, Port St. Joe. We had been living in
Memphis and later Nashville for the prior 22 months, where my
employment took us. Nashville was a nice place to live but Mem-
phis was somewhat different, if you know what I mean.
Nevertheless, we moved back to Port St. Joe on "a wing and a
prayer," so to speak. Our home remained unsold for the duration
of our exile and that was a blessing because we didn't have to
look for housing. My wife had a job waiting for her, but there was
no such job available for me. I had resigned from my job in Nash-
ville and there certainly were no good prospects for another one
here.
Necessity, they say, is the mother of invention. I believe, how-
'ever, that someone upstairs looks out for those who look out for
themselves. Although I didn't "rest on my laurels," I do believe
God was watching out for me and my family during this particu-
lar time. Well, for all time, but in particular this time. A chance
meeting with a friend shortly after our arrival resulted in the
birth of Sure Shot Pest Control Company. Records indicate it was
March, 1986 when Sure Shot was born.
My family and I set out with the gusto of a thirsty man with
an oasis in sight. We passed out leaflets, placed ads in the paper,
went door to door soliciting, did crazy things on the radio and did
almost anything to gain favorable publicity for our new company.
A hungry dog hunts best. I've heard.
A few months after we started, our oldest son came home
from college and Joined us in the hunt. In fact, he dropped out of
school but was going part time at Gulf Coast for two years
so we could build a solid foundation for the business. Two years
ago he returned to school, but he was extremely important in the
growth and success of our business. ,i
We were extremely fortunate with employees, but whenYJed
left, the bulk of the supervision and hard labor again fell ord'ne.
In addition, I was running the office, selling, handling customer
problems and many other things that require full-time attention.
I was working from "can-to-can't", as some country folks say.
Our company was not big enough to hire a full-time manag-
er, but we sure needed one. We also needed a full-time' termite
inspector and salesperson, but, again,, we were not big enough
and I was compelled to do all of these. We had reached a point
that we had to grow or cut back'because the hats I was wearing
had my hat 'rack full!
Finally, after taking into consideration all aspects of our
' lives, especially my physical health, which has not been the best
for the past year or so, we decided to sell our business. It was an
'agonizing and hard decision to make because we didn't want to
kill the goose that laid the egg. And, although the egg wasn't
golden, it certainly was a good one.
On April 1, 1992, Sure Shot Pest Control Company and Ace
Pest Control Company merged and Ace Pest Control assumed
management of all,services and accounts. We were assured that
all employees would remain if they chose and all contracts would
be honored. These facts were stipulated in the merger contract.
My- family and I enjoyed six years of doing business in Port
St. Joe and Gulf County, but times change as do people and ser-
vices. The people in our area deserve a full-line pest control com-
pany and now they have one with Ace Pest Control Company.
On behalf of Virginia, Jed, Shelley, Clint and myself, I want
to give everyone in our community and area our heartfelt thanks
for everything each of you have done that enhanced our success
here, business and other things. Without you, we wouldn't have
been and we shall never forget what our community did for us.
A special, thanks goes to-Higdon Swatts, who was instrumen-
tal in the birth, pf'Sure Shot.'Also, Wesley "amsey and his family,
George Duren andAldeni Farris and Father, Jerry Hlft and. many,
many others who didn't wait for me to ask them for their busi-
ness; they asked me to service them.
And there were others like Leon Pollock, Ralph Roberson, Rex
Buzzett, Walter Wilder and many, many more too numerous to
mention in this small space.
Thanks to all of you and may God hold you in the palm of His
hand.

High Speed
Multiplies
Crash Results
With the first signs of spring,
many drivers are eager Jto roll
down their car windows, turn up
the rad6f and hit the road. "Just
don't let spring fever tempt you to
drive faster than posted speed
limits," sAys Government Employ-'
ees Insurance Company (GEICO)
President Tony Nicely, "because
speedingcan wreck your day."
*At high speed, the distance
required to brake to a stop in-
creases significantly, while the
time you need to perceive and
react to a traffic hazard remains
fixed. If you're traveling too fast,
you may be out of luck by the
time you spot a problem ahead.
*Because the violent forces in
a crash multiply dramatically
with relatively small increases in,
speed, your chances of death in a
crash double with each 10 mph
increase in speed above 50 mph.'
About one-third of all traffic
deaths are speed-related.
*On a typical 20-mile com-
mute, you save only 3.5 minutes
by driving 65 mph instead of 55
mph.

TWO ORDINANCES
Two ordinances were read for
the first time Tuesday morning,
which would have an effect on the,
Beaches water system and beach,
driving permits.
The water department intro-
duced an ordinance which would
increase its deposit to $50.00 for
a new customer. The new rate for
a deposit was thought to provide
the system more protection from
customers leaving the county,
owing a water bill.
The second ordinance had to
do with driving on Gulf County
beaches. Permission is given to
drive on beaches in the Indian;
Pass, Cape San Bias areas only,
and a permit is required.
The permit is the subject of
the ordinance change.
At the last meeting Commis-
sioner Al Ray had suggested the
'County had suggested the charge
be raised to $150 for non-
residents. Attorney Bob Moore(
was instructed to prepare an or-
dinance making.the change and,
it wasi introduced ,at Tuesday',
meeting ..
The new ordinance makes the:
$150 charge for a permit for out
of county- citizens, but it also
makes some provisos in the ordi-
nance language for different situ-
ations.
A non-resident who owns real
property in Gulf County, will be
assessed the same fee as a resi-
dent." Both will pay the same
$15.00 fee as in the past.
Driving on. the beach without
a permit will result in a $150
fine. A second offense will cost
$250. Racing vehicles on the
beach, excessive noise produced
by the veili-ile which would dis-'
turb the peace or pulling skiers
from a vehicle moving -on land
will result in a $250 fine
The ordinance was approved
at its first reading and must be
read a second time before becom-
ing law. .

Dismissed
(From Page 1)
"We had a good rapport with the
state agencies when he came
here. It has done nothing but go
downhill ever since. It's deterio-
rated every day."
He listed several specific ac-
tions which he had not approved
of and, in his words, "which
caused the County problems we
didn't need, especially with the
state agencies; DER particularly."
Commissioner Ed Creamer
stated, "I don't recall a time when
we have said he was doing any-
thing wrong and we sat down
with him and told him to do it an-
other way. I am sympathetic with
.anyone who is dismissed without
any warning. It happened, to me
and I know how it feels."
Traylor said, "I have had nu-
merous conferences with him on
occasion in my position as Chair-
man, to no avail. He continues in
his own way regardless of what
this Board wishes done."
Despite the objections, Com-
missioners Charles Fortner and
Al ,Ray voted with the chainnrman
and released the Special Projects
Director.

Horticultural Agent Addresses Gardeners


The Port St. Joe Garden Club
held their April meeting for the
election of officers. Elected to
serve during the 1992-93 season

bara Wood, first vice-president;

president; Ethel Bridges, secre-
tary; and Ida Baker, treasurer.
These officers will be installed at
the Thursday, May 14th potluck
luncheon. Iris Anderson, District


Two director, will conduct the in-

Kenneth Rudisill, horticul-
ture extension agent of Bay
County, addressed the Club at
their April meeting on the mis-
conceptions about trees. The
most amazing was, with Florida's
18" water table, trees do not have
long tap roots, but have very long
lateral roots, and to feed go way
out past the dripline. Mr. Rudisill
said if a tree has lived five years,


stop feeding.
While enjoying the delicious
refreshments prepared by host-
esses Agnes Culpepper, Betty
Lewis and Flora Blackman, Mr.
Rudisill visited with the Garden
Club ladies and answered more
questions. This was a very special
and successful meeting for the
Port St. Joe Garden Club and a
fine start for the 1992-93 season.

Harvest of History...French Fort on Bay In 1718


This is the second in a series of articles on the
Harvest of History.
The St. Joseph Historical Society wishes to
thank member Wayne Childers for his research and
material that made this article possible.
Don Jose Primo de Rivera
1672? 1730?
A native of San Augustin de la Florida, Jose
Primo de Rivera was the son of a former Lieutenant
Governor (Sergeant Major) of Florida, Don Enrique
Primo de Rivera and Dofia Manuela Bendit Horrui-
tiner, daughter of the former Lieutenant Governor,
Don Pedro Benedit Horruitiner. According to his
own account, he had by May 24th of 1723, spent
over thirty years as a soldier in the Presidio of Flor-
ida. He had served seven years as a Captain of the
Infantry without the corresponding pay and eleven
years as a Captain of Heavy Calvary by virtue of a
patent granted him by the King.
Don Jos6 had been elevated to the rank of Cap-
tain in December of 1702 while he was in Havana.
The acting Governor of Cuba, Don Luis Chacon,
had named him as the captain of a company of sev-
enty recruits from the Province of Galicia in Spain.
These were dispatched to aid in raising the siege of
San Augustin which the Governor of South Caroli-
na, James Moore had placed to it. After the siege
had been lifted, the Governor of Florida, Don Jo-
seph de Zufiiga y de la Cerda, asked for his perma-
nent appointment as Captain in a letter of the 6th
of January of 1703. The Junta of War of the Indies


granted this request. "
However, on December 11, 1711, he wrote to
the King himself asking for confirmation of the title
of Captain of Heavy Cavalry which the Governor of
Florida, Don Corcoles y Martinez had issued to him
some short time before and for the right to raise a
troop of fifty cavalrymen for the defense of that Pre-
sidio. In addition, on the 28th of November of the
same year, the Royal Officials of San Augustin
wrote in support of his request. On the 31st of Oc-
tober of 1713, the Junta of War of the Indies in
Spain, granted his request and the patent was con-
firmed retroactive to 1711.
In 1717, it was decided to re-establish a Span-
ish presence in the Province of Apalache, which
had been abandoned since August of 1704 and on
the 6th of February of 1718, Don Jose left St. Au-
gustine with seventy men, among them infantry-
men, cavalry, armourers, carpenters and other arti-
sans. He had been ordered to go by land to
Apalache and build a casafuerte at the port of San
Marcos de Apalache while a support vessel leaving
four days later was dispatched by sea. Don Jose ar-
rived on March 18, before the support vessel and
began work on the fortification of St. Marks. About
this same time, Don Pedro Matamoros de Ysla ar-
rived to take command of the Presidio of Pansacola.
On April 28th, Don Jose wrote a letter detailing
his progress with the fortifications and reporting
that because of the silting in front of the entrance
to Mobile Bay, the French intended to occupy the


Bay of San Joseph which had been abandoned by
the Spanish along with Apalache in August of
1704. He also wrote that he had requested aid from
Don Pedro in Pansacola because the sloop had not
yet arrived. Don Juan,Manuel Roldan brought the
aid and on his return trip to Pansacola, discovered
Antoine Le Moyne, Sieur de Chateauguay with a
French vessel, establishing a post in Bay San Jo-
seph about a mile west of an indentation in the bay
* somewhere between the present day Butler's Res-
taurant and the Maddox Subdivision. Chateauguay
left there a small fort and fifty men commanded by
M. de Gauvry of whom Roldan convinced twenty-
five to desert to the Spanish.
On August 3, 1718, Don Jose wrote to Don An-,
tonio de Benavides, the Governor of Florida, in-
forming him of this development.. On August 12,
1718, Don Antonio reported this to the King of
Spain, and added the following, '"This report has
been confirmed by fifteen deserters from the garri-
son. (They say that there is) a redoubt with five
cannons, a magazine with munitions and food-
stuffs, and fifty men. I have examined these men
who have been here in this Presidio for forty-four
days and they have told me the reason why they
deserted was that they expected the Spaniards to
cast them out of (St. Joseph's Bay) and that thirty-
five soldiers remained there with their officer. Fur-
ther, that they expected to be reinforced by fifty
more soldiers. There is no doubt 'that unless they
are immediately forced out of that place, it will take


a considerable body of troops to do it since with
time, their forces shall be greater."
The Governor of Pansacola, after being in-
formed of the French presence, protested the occu-
pation to Chateauguay's brother, Jean j3aptiste Le-
Moyne, Sieur de Bienville, the Comnandant of
Louisiana. The latter responded that hM had orders
to occupy this Bay from the French Court and the
matter would have to be decided by it. It was obvi-
ous that this was now the southernmost outpost of
New France, a domain which extended from New-
foundland to the Gulf of Mexico and it did not ap-
pear that the French would easily give it up.
Both Matamoros and the Governor of Florida,
Don Antonio de Benavides, wrote to the proper offi-
cials concerning this French move. The result
though slow, was decisive. The Marques de Valero,
Viceroy of Mexico had named Don Gregorio de Sali-
nas Varona as the Governor of the new Presidio of
what is now Matagorda Bay, but now redirected
him to take command of St. Joseph's Bay and drive
out the French. However by August 6th or 7th of
1718, Roldan discovered that the French had set
fire to and abandoned their fort which they had
called Fort Crevecoeur or Fort Heartbreak. The rain
had put out the fire and Don Jose immediately sent
a detachment from San Marcos to take charge of
and repair the fort. These apparently remained
there until Don Gregorio took command on March
29th, 1719.

Iron Is Vital to


Plant Nutrition


By Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Director
Most of us know that iron is
.an essential element in human
health. But, it isn't so widely rec-
ognized that iron also Is vital to
plant nutrition. Plants depend on
iron for deep green color and vig-
orous growth. Iron deficiency is
Sone of the most common micro-
nutrient problems affecting
woody ornamentals in Florida. It's
also the most difficult to correct.
In our Sunshine State, most
plant nutrient problems are due,
in large part, to poor soil. Iron de-
ficiency is no exception. Our over
limed, acid soils and alkaline
sands fix iron in a form plants
cannot use. So, even though
there's a lot of iron in the soil,
most of it is unavailable to plants.
This results in iron deficiency.
Today, we'll describe other
causes for iron deficiency, and ex-
plain why this particular nutrient
is such a problem. I'll also dis-
cuss some treatments for correct-
ing iron deficiency. My informa-
tion was provided by Extension
Urban Horticulture Specialist Dr.
Robert Black, of the University of
Florida's Institute of Food and Ag-
rfcultural Sciences.
As I said, iron deficiency is
common in over limed, acid soils
and alkaline sands. Another
cause is an excess of heavy met-
als, such as copper, zinc, or man-
ganese, in the soil. These ele-
ments are needed by plants. But,
too much of any one may produce
iron deficiency. This is especially
true of copper.
Usually, chlorosis of the
leaves is the first sign of iron defi-
ciency. But leaf chlorosis also is
the initial symptom of many other
nutrient problems. So, you'll have
to watch for additional 'clues to
iron deficiency. If the problem is
not corrected, new leaves will be
smaller than normal, and most
will have dead spots and burned
edges. Leaf drop and dead wood
are other Indications of iron defi-
ciency.
As I've pointed out, iron defi-
ciency is difficult to correct espe-
cially in alkaline soils. In fact, ap-
plying iron compounds such as
iron sulfate, to an alk-dine soil
won't do a thing to sowae such a
problem. This is because the soil
must be somewhat acid before
plants can take up iron.
Adding some organic matter
such as peat moss or compost be-


fore planting, will help make the
soil more acid. In already planted
areas, you can acidify the soil
with a mixture pf three parts
dusting sulfur and one part iron
sulfate. Use this mixture at the
rate of one pound per 100 square
feet, and allow about two months
between applications. Remember
that acidifying materials should
not be used more than three
times a year.
Once you've made the soil
more acid, you can apply an ap-
propriate treatment. For woody
ornamentals, iron deficiency can
be corrected with iron chelates.
The kind of chelates you need will
depend on the species of plant,
the pH of the soil, and the extend
of the deficiency. Most chelates
are designed to work on acid

, be covered and refrigerated while
working with the first. With a roll-
ing pin, roll the dough between
the paper to a thickness of 1/8
inch. Lift and replace the top and
bottom sheets of wax paper as of-
ten as necessary to smooth any
wrinkles that result from rolling.
Slide the rolled dough, still be-
tween the wax paper, onto a
cutting board or cookie sheet and
place it all in the freezer for about
4 or 5 minutes to facilitate
cutting and handling.
I ,
When the dough is firm, re-
move it from the freezer and lift
off the top sheet of wax paper and
replace it gently. Turn over the
papers and dough and remove
the paper now on tip. Using a 2-
inch round cutter, cut as many
cookies as possible. If the dough
softens by the time you are ready
to transfer the cookies to the
cookie sheets, replace the dough

firm again. Use a metal spatula to

soils, and will give results within
about a month. There are che-
lates which will work on highly al-
kaline soil. But, these compounds
tend to be quite expensive, and
may take as long as six months
to work.
The names of these chelates
are rather long and confusing, so
I won't mention any now. Just
check with your garden supply
center, a local nursery, or your
County Extension Office for sug-
gestions concerning the right

Placed 6 or 7 M&M's on each
cookie, leaving as much of a mar-

Now roll out the second portion of
dough just as you did the first.
Place a round overreach of the
M&M-topped cookies. 'Allow the
cookies to soften to room temper-
ature as you, reroll all the scraps
to make more tops, or tops and

Four Gulf 4-H'ers Qualify for State Show


Saturday, March 21st, was a
memorable day for Gulf County's
Big River Riders 4H Horse Club.
Four representatives attended the
Area Show in Marianna with
hopes of accumulating enough
points to qualify for the State
show. Three others went to show
their skills in the invitational
events, wanting to have enough
participation to get these events
included in future 4H shows.
One, who could not ride, went for
moral support. All came home
tired, dirty, and extremely happy,
with many awards, great pride in
their accomplishments and goals
achieved.
As part of the efforts to have
roping and team penning includ-
ed as part of the 4H program,
Brian and Michael Lemieux (cou-
sins) and Russell McMillian will
be stars in a video to be present-
ed at the awards banquet follow-
ing the state show. They will be
featured exhibiting their roping
skills. They won first, second,
and third in the steer roping-
heading/heeling contest. Brian
riding Willie also won a second in
break-a-way calf roping.
The video will also show
Gulfs participants in the team
penning contest. The team of
Russell McMillian, Mike Greene


and Jennifer Odom won third and
Roy Carter and his hurry up crew
won second. Not a bad showing
for first time entrants.
Roy Carter, McMillian, Tiffany
Wills and Odom will be going to
Tampa to compete at the State.
4H Show. McMillian, in his first
horse show with Lucky Nuggett,
won second in Keyhole Race, sec-
ond in Registered Geldings-under
5 and fourth in Western Pleasure
Horse under 5. Wills and Beau-
ty proved that dynamite comes in
small packages by winning fifth
in Cloverleaf Barrels, Jr. and sec-
ond in Stake Race. Roy has final-
ly found what Sunshine likes
best, running and winning. They
placed first in Pole Bending, Sr.,
first in Stake Race, and second in
Cloverleaf Barrels, Sr. Odom
demonstrated that an Appaloosa
can do it all. She and Ima Cajun.
Cowgirl, took first in Saddle Seat
Pleasure, second in Western
Horsemanship, Jr., fourth in
Western Pleasure, Jr. and sixth
in Western Showmanship, Jr.
Ronnie Small, whose pony,
Geronimo, came up lame just
before the show, went along and
gave support where needed. He
received special recognition, a
Sportsmanship Trophy, for the


4H spirits he exhibited by helping
the others with feeding, washing,
grooming and all the million and
one details that must be done to
get ready for a class. His enthu-
siasm boosted other team mem-
bers to excel. He also manned a
gate during the entire show, and
passed out awards and words of
encouragement to all entrants,
for all counties.
Anyone wishing to see these
youngsters perform may do so by


attending the horse show they are
hosting to help raise funds for the
July trip. The show will be Satur-
day, April 18, at T. L. James Park
in Wewahitchka. It is scheduled.
to start at 10:00 a.m. CT. Halter,,
pleasure, and speed classes will
be held, with a Lead Line class for
the little ones. Bring your horse,
if you have one, or come yourself
and enjoy the fun. The 4H
mamas will have goodies availa-
ble.

Fun Facts...


Paul Revere's ride:
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
began his poem, The midnight
ride of Paul Revere, "On the eight-
eenth of April."
That much is probably true.
However, several facts about that
night were changed in the poem.
When the signal first went
out. Revere was still in Boston -
not "on the opposite shore."
Actually, Revere never did ar-
rive in Concord. He was joined in
Lexington by two men. Dr. Sam
Prescott and William Dawes, 'and
later all three ran into a British
patrol.
.Dawes escaped, but went
back to Lexington. ,
Revere was captured and re-
leased.
It was actually Prescott who
got through to Concord and
warned the patriots.
Soft spring rains usher in
new beginnings.
Spring is a time for rebirth.
*Oval spikes awaken within
green and purple skunk cabbag-
es.
*Jack-in-the-pulpits come
into bloom. ,
*Fragrant arbutus nod their
pink blossoms.
*Trilliums lift their pink-lined
petals above their extended
leaves.
*Queen bees and hornets
come out of hibernation.
*By late spring, newborn ani-
mals and birds fill the forests.
R Facts about rain:
*Because of the strong up-
draft in every thunderstorm,
some of the rain goes up instead
of down!
Rain cannot fall through air
which is moving faster than 17
miles per hour.
Shifting winds:
Just check out cows in a pas-
ture. If they all change positions
in the same direction, you can
bet the wind has shifted.
Why? Because they always
head into the wind.
For what reason?
Cows don't like the wind to
ruffle their hair.
The same goes for most birds
- plus, they can take off more
quickly facing into the wind.
Would you believe?
The Shearwater has one of
the longest migration routes of
any bird.
Where does it migrate?


In a circle completely around
the Pacific Ocean.
How long does their Journey
take? ,
Three or four years
Nest building time
In spring, a female bird feels
the need to build a nest, when
the chemical estrogen builds up
in her body.
When does this happen?
As the daylight hours in-
crease.
Did you know?
Very large drops of water -
nearly the same size produce
the brightest rainbows and the
purest colors.

Three Great Ways To Save
.1 ,1__l__U_ I JI.I.a.t ,


There has to be a first time
for everything and that includes
your child's first visit to the den-
tist. Much of the preparation will
be up to the dentists. Here are
some suggestions:
Don't give your child the op-
portunity to hear "neighborhood
experiences". It's best to tell a
child about a dental visit the
night before. Of course, always
refer to the dentist as "our
friend". Convey the feeling that
dental visits are a part of grow-
ing up. Don't offer rewards or in-
dicate that there is anything to
fear. In fact, such word s hurt,
grind,.drill, etc., should be elimi-
nated from the dental vocabu-
lary. Say that your dentist in-
tends only to examine and that


he will always explain what he is
going to do.
Make appointment day easy
for your child. Make not other
plans for him or her that day. If
possible, the appointment
should be made early in, the
day.
This may be the most diffi-
cult advice of all but children
are usually most cooperative if
parents are not in the treatment
room. Rest assured, all findings
will be discussed with you after
the visit.

vice to promote better dental
health. From the office of:

Honored
The. State Health Office has
nominated North Florida Medical
Centers, Inc. (NFMC), headed by
CEO Jim McKnight, for the Na-
tional Rural Health Association's
annual Outstanding Rural Prac-
tice award. NFMC provides medi-
cal and dental care to communi-
ties in three North Florida
counties covering an area the size
of Delaware. Staff includes three
board-certified physicians, three
mid-level practitioners, four nurs-
I es and two medical assistants.
Dental services are provided by a
dentist, a hygienist and two den-
tal assistants.
NFMC is significant employ-
er and valuable community citi-
zen. Many of the 25-member staff
have lived all their lives in the
area and the medical and dental
staffs now live 'and shop in the lo-
cal area. Because they "belong" in
the community, NFMC personnel
extend their services to home vis-
its to check -on bedridden pa-
tients who cannot come to the of-
ficel
Health awareness and pre-
ventive care are promoted
0 through free screenings and
health fair participation. In addi-
tion, NFMC provides free physi-
cals to student athletes. Staff
training is enhanced by participa-
tion in AHEC training programs
and preceptorship training for
Nurse Practitioners.
NFMC clinics serve the entire
community, not Just the poor who
cannot afford the cost or trans-
portation to health care available
in cities 35-55 miles away. Com-
munity support has been gained
by providing the highest quality
of service. This support, in turn,
contributes to the nnancial
health of NFMC and enables ex-
pansion into additional under-
served communities. The synergy
between health care providers
and the community maximizes
the effectiveness of resources in-
vested in health care in this part
of North Florida.
The Wewahitchka Medical
Clinic is a member of the NFMC.


Rotary

SHears of


AA Work
John Frothingham, a visiting
Rotarian from Champlain, Ill.,
spoke to the Rotary Club Thurs-
day. Frothingham, a counsellor
for Alcoholics Anonymous, spoke
on the working of AA and gave a
little of its history.
The organization started
about 1935, accidentally. The
person who started it, himself an
alcoholic, realized that he wasn't
drinking when he was in the com-
pany of friends, who made up a
group who tried to listen to peo-
ple's problems and helped guide
him through the troubled times
in his life. When he left the com-
pany of these certain friends, he
was right back at his old habits.
Adopting this method of deal-
ing with people, earnestly trying
to solve problems which arose in
their lives and caring for them, he
was able to help others. The "oth-
ers" had to want help for it to do
any good.
Frothingham said; "We've
+ F spent a ton of money on the drug
problem and it was needed. But
had we spent the time and money
on alcohol we have spent on
drugs, we would be better off. Al-
cohol is more 5of a national prob-

*Youngsters are driving safer.
The death rate from teenage
driving drunk has dropped
sharply, says the federal Cen-
ters for Disease Control. Credit
goes to changes in state drink-
ing laws, stiffer penalties and
Students Against Drunk Driv-
ing, a peer group that encour-
ages safety and provides rides.
*If you drive a small car, take
extra precautions to make sure
you are seen by other drivers.
Turn lights on at dawn and
dusk.. Stay out of .the "blind
spot" of bus and truck drivers.
*"Read" radiator fluid for clues
to performance. Fresh anti-
freeze will be bright yellow or
green. Dull colors or an orange
tint means the radiator fluid
hasn't been changed in a long
time and is contaminated with
dirt or rust. Have system
drained, flushed and refilled.
*For every gallon of gasoline
your car uses,. it "breathes in"
enough air to fill a room 10 feet
square. And that's why you
want to make sure the air filter
is clean.
*See us at Gulf Ford-Mercury
for a look-see and a test ride.

of Obstetricians and Gynecolo-
gists. The U.S. Department of
Health and Human Services Cen-
ters for Disease Control reports
that each day 33,000 people con-
tract a sexually transmitted dis-
ease (STD). That equates to over
12 million cases per year, up
from 4 million in 1980.
Statistics from the Centers
for Disease Control on this un-
precedented outbreak of STDs are
staggering.
*There are now approximately
1 million cases of HIV infection
nation-wide.
*500,000 new cases of herpes
occur annually; over 25 million
Americans are infected with this
disease, more than the popula-
tion of Florida, Georgia and Ala-
bama combined.
*1.3 million new cases of gon-
orrhea occur annually in the
United States, 35,000 in Florida.
*Syphilis is now at a 40-year
high, with 128,000 new infections
per year in the U.S., with over
10,000 of those cases in Florida.
ranking it fourth highest in the
country.
@4 million cases of chlamydia
occur annually in our nation,
70,000 in Florida.
*There are now 24 million
cases of Human Papilloma Virus
(HPV), in this country.
Sobering as they may be,
these numbers are cold and face-
less. But they represent real peo-
ple with real pain pain that
ruins lives and shatters dreams.
Millions of people are waking
up to the reality that "free" sex
has not only demanded a very
high price of them psychologically
and emotionally, but is now cost-
ing them physically as well. AIDS
leads to death; herpes can lead to
infant death; gonorrhea often
causes pelvic inflammatory dis-
ease and syphilis can result in
brain disorders, heart disease
and death; chlamydia may cause
sterility in women: and, HPV
causes venereal warts and cervi-
cal cancer. Too many people have
the idea that if they do get a STD,
a shot or two will cure it. They
forget that there is no known
cure for any viral STD, including
herpes, HPV and AIDS.
If statistics do not lie, we are
staring a very large truth in the
face, and epidemiologists tell us
we have only seen the beginning.
Yet the "safe sex" gurus, whose
bankrupt policies have largely
contributed to this epidemic, con-
tinue to promote condoms for
preventing STDs, including AIDS.
But. If the truth be known, con-
doms are not as. safe as they
seem. By believing the lie, we only
promote the tragic psychological,
emotional and physical conse-
quences of STDs.
Nowhere in the "safe sex"
message is there mentiorf of con-
dom failure. Yet, according to a
study by the research arm of
Planned Parenthood, published in
Family Planning Perspectives in
1989. condoms can fail at lease
15.7 percent of the time in pre-
venting pregnancy. They fail 36.3
percent of the time annually in
preventing pregnancy among
young, married minority women.
Considering that a woman can
conceive only one or two days per
month, we can only speculate
how exponentially higher the fail-
ure rate for condoms must be in
preventing STDs, which can be
contracted 365 days per year.
Even more alarming is a med-
ical report published in the Jour-
nal of the American Medical Asso-
ciation in 1987 that found HIV to
be 1/25 the width of sperm, ca-
pable of passing easily through
even the smallest gaps in con-
doms. According to a scientific re-
port in Nature, 1988, researchers
studying surgical gloves made out
of latex, the same material in con-
doms but thicker, found "chan-
nels of 5 microns that penetrated
the entire thickness of the glove."
The HIV virus measures only .1
micron (1 micron equals 39 mil-


vo.,


lionths of an inch), according to a
1987 report of the American Jour-
nal of Nursing. Thus, the virus
can be easily transmitted, even
while participants believe they
are being protected. The physical
properties of latex condoms are
also subject to a host of condi-
tions that promote failure, includ-
ing age, extremes of heat and
cold, and manufacturing imper-
fections. Given this scientific evi-
dence, what rational, informed
person should play "condom rou-
lette" with his or her very life?
In spite of the evidence, the
entertainment, advertising and
publishing industries continue to
promote "condom mania" and the
"safe sex" myth while millions of
Americans suffer the consequenc-
es. Yet in the midst of this high-
profile tragedy, there lies a golden
opportunity to advocate the only
common-sense, foolproof ap-
proach to protect us from the
deadly diseases that lie in wait -
abstinence before marriage, then
marriage and mutual fidelity for
life.
True comprehensive sex edu-
cation requires parental involve-
ment at home. the first depart-
ment of education. We should
teach our children about the
prevalence and severe conse-
quences of STDs, not just AIDS,
the facts regarding condom fail-
ure and the importance of absti-
nence. But it is not good to 'lust


say no." We need to say "yes" to
.lasting friendships and monoga-
mous marriages. We must be liv-
ing examples to our children, in-
stilling in them solid values such
as virtue, integrity, self-control
and moral responsibility.
Parental involvement in the
public square is also critical. We
must first learn to discern what
types of sex education curricula
would be beneficial to our chil-
dren. There are several excellent
abstinence curricula available for
use in schools such as Me, My
World, My Future, Sex Respect,
Facing Reality, F.A.C.T.S.; and,
Reasonable Reasons to Waitt We
must then voice our opinion on
sex education curricula that
should be implemented in the
classroom by serving in parent-
teacher associations, meeting
with school board members and
attending school board hearings.
The real path back to a sane
and effective policy to prevent
STDs is not an easy one, but it is
the only one that will work. This
path requires that we who value
our children and grandchildren
compassionately commit to pa-
rental involvement at home, at
school and in our communities,
working with a moral vision to
strengthen true family values.
The hopes, dreams and lives of
our children and their children
depend on it.

LIES, LIES, MORE LIES
PEOPLE will tell a lie at the drop of a hat and never think
twice-about it. The seriousness of lies is belittled by referring
to a lie as a "fib", a "little white lie", a "story", or "stretching
the truth". .
THE TRUTH IS GOD HATES LYING! (See Proverbs 6:17)
Ir the "scriptures we.find liars are considered despicable
in' character, vilest of sinners, and in no way permitted to
enter heaven (1 Tim. 1:9, 10, Rev. 21:8, Rev. 21:27).
What will it profit you if (by your lie) you gain the whole
world and lose your.soul? (Matt. 16:26)
