Solution

Suggests Cooperation of

Counties to Hire a Doctor


FHP troopers and rescue workers are shown at work af-
ter Monday morning's traffic accident near Money Bayou


bridge. The accident resulted in the death of Michael Tay-
lor, 34, and was Gulf County's third fatality of the year.


Two-Truck Crash Results In Fatality


A pick-up truck plowed into the rear of a parked garbage
truck on Highway C-30 Monday morning, resulting in Gulf
County's third traffic fatality of the year.
Michael W. Taylor, 34, lost his life in the mishap, when the
'90 model Chevrolet pick-up he was driving, ran into the rear
of a 1988 Mack garbage truck owned by Argus Services, Incor-
porated. The truck was driven by Eugene A. Fernen of Foun-
tain.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol investigation re-
port, the garbage truck was parked in the eastbound lane of
the highway, loading garbage, at the time of the accident..


The accident happened at approximately 8:21 a.m. Taylor,
a building contractor, was on his way to work in the Indian
Pass area. The collision happened Just a short distance west
of the Money Bayou bridge.
James Morris Pettis of Panama City, also received injuries
in the collision. Pettis was a pedestrian at the rear of the gar-
bage truck and was caught in the crash. He is currently in
Gulf Coast Hospital,, being treated for what the Patrol de-
scribed as "non life threatening injuries."
The details of the tragic accident are still being investigat-
ed by Trooper Ricky B. O'Kelly and Cpl.. D. L. Upchurch.


Committee Giverr-Rules

to Follow In Operation

of W.C. Water System


Jerry Ausley, district director
for the Farmers Home Adminis-
tration was in Gulf County Tues-
day making final arrangements
for approval of a $200,000 loan
from his agency for the White
City water 'system installation.
The County has arranged for
$500,000 in grants and $200,000
in loans to construct the system.
The. proposed utility, which was
given serious attention two years
ago when a child was diagnosed
with hepatitis from drinking con-
taminated water, has received a,
S$200,000 state grant and a
$300,000 federal grant for a total
of $700,000 to construct the sys-
tem.
Overtures have been made to
the City of Port St. Joe to furnish
treated water for the new installa-
tion transported to White City
'* through a pipe line to a high
pressure storage tank. The sys-
tem will serve approximately 160
families at the present time.


the first 1,000 gallons of water
used to cover all expenses of the
system. A charge of $2.00 per
each additional thousand gallons
will be made, causing the system
to have a solvent operation.
There will be no hook-up fee
at the beginning of the system's
operation but the county, acting
as the water department, will
need to set a cut-off .date for
hook-ups. After that date a hook-
up charge will be necessary.
Ausley said the county would
be charged with operating the
system but stated that it and its
revenues would furnish security
for Farmers Home's $200,000
loan. Ausley said, 'The loan re-
quirements are the same as those
with the Beaches and the Oak
Grove systems with the county
assuming the responsibility for
operation, furnishing periodic
audits and reports to Farmers
Home."
Ausley also said, 'You must

State's Attorney Jim Apple-
man appeared before the County
Commission Tuesday night sug-
gesting that the County join a
consortium with others in the dis-
trict to hire a salaried medical ex-
aminer. .
Gulf County as well as other
counties in the 14th Judicial Cir-
cuit found themselves without a
medical examiner this past week.
with the resignation of the Pana-
ma City firm handling the duties
in the circuit.
Appleman told the Board, "I
have found out in the last few
days that medical examiners are
scarce and they don't come
cheap."
The State's Attorney said he
was already making contacts for
another medical examiner but
suggested the arrangement as a
solution for the continuous hag-
gling which resulted from the fee
system previously used by the
former medical examiner. Gulf
County has gone on record sever-
al times questioning the necessity
of some autopsies in questioning
some of the charges made by the
office of the former examiner, Dr.
Sybers.
Appleman reminded the
Board that they had budgeted
$12,000 in the '92-'93 budget for
medical examiner's services. "I
feel this should be an adequate
amount to fund a salaried exam-
iner and abolish the fee for-every
procedure. Surely the 14th Cir-
cuit should be able to fund the
service for a dollar for each per-
son in the Circuit If it didn't cov-
er the cost it would come close."
The County listened favorably
to Appleman's presentation, lik-
ing his idea of a flat charge annu-
ally for medical examiner's servic-


es rather than continuing on the
fee basis. Chairman Traylor told
Appleman, 'This would give us a
better handle on our expendi-
tures for this service and less
controversy over costs."
The Board assured Appleman
they would continue to look with
favor on this presentation and
give him a final answer in the
very near future. Appleman
quipped, 'There doesn't seem to
be any hurry as employing a
medical examiner has to be ap-
proved by everybody, including
the Governor."
BIDS APPROVED
The Board approved Tuesday
night the purchase of carpet for
all the constitutional offices
which were not already carpeted.
The offices had asphalt tile in-
stalled when the courthouse was
built more than 20 years ago. The
job will place carpet in all of the
courthouse with the exception of
the areas with terrazzo floors.
Successful bidder for the job was
The Rug Room, at a price of
$4,983.86. His price didn't in-
clude carpeting the County
Agent's office but it was ascer-
tained that his per yard price was
still the low bid.
C. W. Roberts Construction
Co. was the successful bidder for
installing a large box culvert in
the beaches and Stone Mill Creek
area. Roberts' bid for the job is a
total of $10,000.00.
PLAN APPROVED
Administrative Assistant Lar-
ry Wells reported to the Commis-
sion that the state Department of
Community Affairs has given
their written approval of Gulf
County's Comprehensive Plan as
(See PLAN on Page 3)


A section of experimental
paving was put down in Port SLt.
Joe when Preble-Rish Engineers
and C. W. Roberts Construction
Co. combined for a testing of the
application. yesterday at noon
they began putting the new pro-
cess on Eighth Street in Port St.
Joe and next week will do anoth-
er application with state DOT offi-
cials in attendance to observe the
process.
The new paving utilizes old
automobile tires which have been
a problem for public officials ever
since recycling and pollution con-
trol became buzz words in the
State of Florida. The process uses
a mixture of old tires, melted and
combined with asphalt to form a


construction method but It has
never been tried yet in the State
of Florida. This will be the initial
application of the process utiliz-
ing recycled tires as part of its
raw product.

Election Day

Next Thursday is the time to enjoy the second verse of elec-
tion day. The second primary election comes up, and it will be
time to go to the polls again.
It will take all our will power to go cast our ballot. It will be
an unusual ballot and it will be an unusual day to vote. Floridi-
ans have voted on a Tuesday since "Heck" was a pup. Storms,
hurricanes, or natural disasters have all failed to change the
Tuesday voting day-until now. It seems Tuesday, October 6-
the regular election day-is the Jewish holiday, Yom Kippur.
So, the second primary election day has been changed to ac-
commodate the Jewish holiday. Of course some of the public
Christian activities have been stopped or drastically curtailed
due to Jewish protests of tacitly having government approval of
Christian activities by continuing to allow such blatant examples
as placing lighted crosses atop water towers at Easter and/or
Christmas, or religious displays depicting the manger scene of
the birth of Christ, but evidently that is considered to be a differ-
ent matter than desecrating Yom Kipper by going to the polls
and casting a vote.
Some nations vote on Sundays in order to be sure everyone
is not hampered in the exercise of their rights by having to work
or some other such hindrance.
Here in Gulf County, some of our five districts will not be vot-
ing, because their races have already been decided or officials
are not up for election this year. There will be no voting in Gulf
County Precincts 2, 4, 8 and 9. If that fails to cause confusion
next Tues ... er ... Thursday, it will be a modem miracle. An-
other good reason to revert back to at large choice of our public
servants.
The system can be arranged in order to guarantee represen-
tation for minorities and most of us will probably insist on it. At
large voting will allow minorities the added political clout of help-
ing decide the make-up of entire board memberships rather
than having a decision on just one member. Of course it would
serve to give the majority a stronger voice in choosing entire
boards, also.


Just Not Warranted
After the City of Port St. Joe, St. Joe Paper Company and Ari-
zona Chemical Company have spent millions of dollars over the
last four years to do exactly what EPA said needed doing, the
federal agency rewards such diligence for complying with their
wishes by filing suit against the City and its Wastewater Treat-
ment Plant.
The St. Joe Paper Company put in equipment EPA said they
needed to in order to reduce emissions of what EPA determined
as pollutants-at least $40 million worth-at the time specified
in the suit. It couldn't be for lack of willingness to comply with
EPA's wishes. Lack of willingness to comply we could under-
stand, but being fined for cooperation is a little much.
We haven't seen any figures as to what the fine might be, but
it will more than likely be substantial. Even considering most of
the fine will be borne by St. Joe Paper Company, it will be sub-
stantial.'EPA doesn't play around with pocket change.
The City and regular customers of the Wastewater Treatment
Plant are continually spending thousands of dollars every month
that rolls around for testing to appease EPA, DER and to make
sure they are operating as they are required by the rules. This
testing costs an average of $20,000 a month, 12 months out of
the year, year after year. Oh yes, at times like now with the
threat of suit hanging over their head, the testing also provides
information designed to cover their rear end when EPA decides
to levy the REAL money in fines.
All of this means hefty expenditures, just to defend oneself
from the litigation and for the government to pursue the matter.
Port St. Joe has had to fight tooth and toenail with EPA and
DER, ever since the Wastewater plant started up. They have had
to spend a million and a half to put in a power plant to operate
the plant in case a storm knocks it out, but they have never said
who they will operate it for, since St. Joe Forest Products shuts
its mill down during hurricanes, and most people leave town.
The power plant has never been operated except to test it period-
ically.
It seems unfair to us to arbitrarily penalize someone who has
a history of attempting to comply with limits and rules in their
operation. If the City had refused to do some of the things EPA
requested, it would be a different matter. Granted, the City ques-
tions requests from EPA when an expenditure is necessary, but
they have facts and evidence to argue with. If their point is still
unacceptable, the City usually complies with EPA.
That attitude should be rewarded, not punished.


"Kes," Yogi's voice was barely
audible and we couldn't a'been
more than six inches apart, "are
you still here?"
'Yes, I'm here." I felt kind'a
stupid answering. We were locked
in the trunk of Nicky Joe's 1957
Ford Crown Victoria. There
wasn't no way to get out until

someone unlocked us of course

right turn, we felt and heard the
gravel underneath us as Nicky
Joe eased that Ford onto the one
way entrance to the Sundown
Drive In Theater.
"Do you think this Is going to
work?"
"1 dunno. It seemed like a
good idea a while ago."
A "while ago" up at Paul Da-
vid Campbell's house we were all
laughing about it. 'We'll slip a
couple in in the trunk."
'We've done it before."
"It will be fun."
'Well, it'll beat sitting down at
the square watching the red, light


change."
'Who are the smallest two?"
I don't even remember want-
ing to go to the drive-in picture
show. These guys were a lot older
than me. They're Leon's friends.
As a matter of fact the only rea-
son I was up at Paul David's was
because Mom told Leon he
couldn't go without me. Of
course, I did think it would be
fun to "slip into" the show with-
out paying. But that was a "while
ago." You can't imagine how dark
it is in the trunk of a '57 Ford.

We'll be out in a minute."

Whapl Nicky Joe had hit the
brakes hard. He told us when he
got to the paying line we needed
to be ready for some pull ups and
fast stops. I wasn't ready my
head banged into the trunk lid,
rendering me near 'bout uncon-
scious.
"It sure is dark in here."'
'Would you quit with that
dark stuff" Yogi had me whisper-
ing now.
We pulled up a car length
and stopped again.
'You know what this reminds
me of?"
'What?"
"Edgar Allan Poe."
"Aw nuts, Yogi, Poe ain't got
nothing to do with this."
We'd been reading some
short stories in Mrs. Bryant's
class by Poe. The guy was
warped.
"This is kind'a like The Cask
of Amontillado, do you remember
that one, it was where the guy
took the bricks and walled his
friend up in that daik basement -

"Do you remember The Tell

that ticket booth I know that man
will hear my heart beating. Kes,
I'm afraid I'm going to give us
away. Kes Kes, are you still
there?"
"No, Yog, I jumped out back
by Carroll Lake. Why did you
have to bring up Edgar Allan
Poe?" We both fell silent as we
pulled up another car length. My
heart was beginning to pound.
"Do they put you in prison for
slipping into drive-in picture
shows?"
I was thinking of something
much worse than prison what

when he got scared, "we saw Rio

those places my Mother has been
warning me for years to be care-

demented short story writer who's
been dead for a hundred years. I
don't even know what movie I'm

boys may not unlock this trunk,
the FBI might, I've got 254 in my
pocket I could have paid, it is
hard to breathe in here and I'm
trapped with a guy who won't

Get Any
I SUPPOSE THE cost of
everything is relative. You know
what I mean, relative to whether
or not you have the money to buy
or just enough to wish.
Every so often I see items ad-
vertised, giving the price and
making it sound like you are just
dumb because you haven't
bought one of these items before.
You are the only person left in the
world with a couple of dollars to
rub against each other, who isn't
already enjoying the good feel-
,ings/comfort/prestige/style/luck
to already own one of these little
goodies.
A small quotation in last
week's Newsweek magazine made
me downright discouraged be-
cause I didn't have the good for-
tune to own a Bentley automo-
bile. After the owners of the
Bentley Automobile Company had
gone to so much effort to produce
one of the quality automobiles
which was considered "competi-
tive" in price and performance for


Color You Want As Long As the Color Is Black

average people like me, with an
average income.

I APPRECIATE THE Bentley
Automobile Company thinking
about me and the others in this
world like me. I have always had
a Bentley taste but a Ford wallet,
if you know what I mean.
lan McKay, director of mar-
keting for Bentley announced the
British manufacturer of the auto-
mobiles was introducing a new
economy model, designed for the
"average" automobile owner.
I had never hankered for a
Bentley so far as I can recollect.


So it was a surprise to me to
learn there is now one I can af-
ford to buy.
It's plain but serviceable, just
like a Bentley ought to be, I sup-
pose, but there is a nagging ques-
tion in the back of my mind
about whether the Bentley has
sacrificed something, or cut cor-
ners in part of the manufacturing
process, or maybe they put a fi-
berglass bumper on the car, or
some artificial chrome, or
equipped the car with a cheaper
set of tires to hold the sticker
price of the new model down to
only $181,0001


MERCY, ME! Where would I
get $181,000 to purchase an au-
tomobile with? I appreciate Bent-
ley thinking I have $181,000 at
my disposal to buy automobiles,
but I imagine I have not spent a
total of $181,000 on all the auto-
mobiles I have ever purchased:
and I have bought a few in my
life!
I seriously doubt whether or
not I would spend $181,000 for
an automobile, even if I could af-
ford it.
I certainly wouldn't spend
$181,000 for a stripped down
model of any kind of automobile.
If I spend that kind of money on a
set of wheels, it would have to be
equipped!
First off, I would want a five-
year warranty on more than the
power train. I would want at least
60 months to pay for it, provided
I didn't sacrifice my $2,500 cash
rebate.
A $181,000 automobile


would have to last me all my life
and be a part of my estate when I
die. The most valuable part, I
might add.

I WOULD GROW tired of driv-
ing the same car, day after day,
year after year. I would also have
mixed emotions about owning
such a car. If someone parked too
close in a parking space and
scratched my Bentley-even the.
economy $181,000 model-I
would have heart failure.
If I were driving down the
road and somebody pulled out in
front me, mashing the front in, I
would have to think twice about
whether to call the ambulance
first 'to handle any injuries, or if I
should call the repairman to my
car first.
I had no indecision about the
first car I ever owned. It was a
rusted '35 Ford, with three of six
windows broken out, a hole you
could fall through in the floor-


board and I had to pull it home.
It cost $200, which is a far
cry from $181,000. Of course,
Ford Motor Company didn't tool
up especially to make that car. It
was one of hundreds of thou-
sands they produced Just like it
in 1935. It didn't last me a life-
time, but that was OK by me. I
didn't have it for very long until it
dawned on me that if I was inter-
ested in doing more riding than
walking, I was going to have to
get rid of that car and get me an-
other one, anyhow.
But, I didn't pay $181,000 for
it either!
Henry Ford put America on
wheels by building a car the
working man could afford. It
came in any color you wanted as
long as you wanted black. Now
every car is virtually custom
made. Bentley seems to be adopt-
ing old Henry's concept. I wonder
if the economical Bentley is avail-
able in any color except black?

Mississippi Hospitality
There is a stigma attached to the state of Mississippi that the
fine people who live there don't deserve. Mississippi, to some peo-
ple, is the "red-neck" capital of the world, and everyone there drives
pick-up trucks with a gun-rack over the back window and mud on
the tires, beats their wives, hates black people and chews tobacco.
Many people who ascribe to that theory probably have, never set
foot in Mississippi. In other words, many are probably Yankees or
narrow-minded Southerners who wish they were Yankees. To all of
them I say, "Happy motoring North!"
Many people I know, I've found, think I'm from Mississippi, and
although I would be proud if I were, I'm not. I was born and raised
in Pensacola, Florida, and I have a real birth certificate to prove it.
Just because I speak with a little "southern brogue", like country
music, drive a pick-up truck, chew tobacco and voted for George
Wallace doesn't mean I'm from any particular state. I've seen worse
than I in New York, believe it or not.
I did, however, spend some quality time in Mississippi. What
education I have was received in Mississippi, when I enrolled ind
Hinds Junior College and later attended the University of Southern
Mississippi in Hattiesburg.
My residence is now in Port St. Joe, Florida, but a part of me
will forever remain in Mississippi.
I was reminded of my days in Mississippi and, in particular,
those first few months I spent at Hinds Junior College this weekend
when my daughter brought a friend home with her from The Uni-
versity of West Florida for a weekend visit Jennifer lives in Monta-
na and her situation is similar to mine when I was in college: She's
not abL to get home for a weekend.
As we were eating dinner last night my mind rushed back to
the fall of 1957, a most lonely time in my life. It was mny first time
away from home and at that time about 90 percent of the students-
who attended Hinds lived within a 50 mile radius of Raymond, the.
town in which Hinds is located. Each Friday afternoon the campus
looked like a ghost town because most of the students went home.
The professors even went home and the president of the college
would have, butshe lived there and his mama and daddy were dead.
That left a, ew of us "out-of-staters", a couple of janitors and
Coach Joe. Coach Joe wasn't much fun to be around because he
loved to see blood from two people crashing into one another and
loved to see people run wind-sprints. I wasn't too crazy about ei-
ther, especially when I was the one doing either.
Show me an 18-year-old boy in a small deserted town with no:
car, no money and no girls and I'll show you a person more pitiful
than Jimmy Swaggart asking forgiveness on national T.V.
But it didn't take the people of Mississippi long to come to my
rescue. After the first football season I had an invitation to some-
ole's home almost every weekend, and it wasn't just football
players and male classmates. Every now and then a lovely and
charming Mississippi lass would invite me to go home with her and
several times I accepted. And I was always invited to return, a trib-
ute to my impeccable manners and charming personality. (The fact
is, people in Mississippi are so warm and hospitable they will put
up with most anyone.)
During my first two years I spent many weekends with many
different families, but none more than the McKays. Buddy McKay
was our quarterback and lived in nearby Jackson with his mother,
sister Jo and her husband, Jack. After my first visit to their home, I
was right at home and had an open invitation to visit any time.
My visits to Buddy's home were always special. His folks always
treated me like a king. There was always a variety of wonderful,
home-cooked food and the table was set with the very best china
and silverware. After the meal was finished, all that was required of
me' was that I enjoy myself watching a ball game on TV or take a
nap, Actually, it was,'better. than' home in that respect. .. -
The most important thing, however, was thelove and trust they
shared with me, a lonely country boy a long way from home. I was
always treated with love and like one of the family, and that meant
a lot to me then, and still does to this day.
I've thanked the McKays many times, but I want to thank them
again, and the rest of the people who befriended me in Mississippi,
for all the love and kindness they gave me while I was there.
So Jennifer, you come back to our home as often as you like.
It's like Buddy and Linda Wood say when they help someone: "Don't
pay us back, just pass it on."
Mississippi is blessed with an abundance of fine, honest, fair
and wonderful people, I don't care how they are branded by some
people. And for those of you who don't agree with me, why don't you
take a flying leap ....to New Jerseyl
And don't call us, we'll call you, when and if we want you back.

servation that youth does not
necessarily mean immaturity, as
suggested by this sub-caption,
just as age does not always de-
note maturity. Several cases
come to mind in which people of
the ages of thirty-, forty-, and
even fifty-something have not yet
reached the level of maturity usu-
ally associated with their age.
Perhaps your sub-caption

Writer Puts Ball
In Other Court
To the Editor:
As a concerned resident of St.
Joe Beach and District 3, I feel
compelled to reply to the letter Bo
Williams wrote to The Star last
week.
'Mr. Williams should check a
little closer with the people of Dis-
trict 3 before he makes such rash
statements concerning the up-
coming election for our Commis-
sioner. I speak for a good many
people in saying that we appre-
ciate our Commissioner and we
think he has done a good job. He
listens to our complaints, returns
our calls and is prompt and cour-
teous with his service.
It is to my understanding
that Mr. Williams recently applied
fdr a job with Gulf County and
consequently was not hired.
Co'ld It be that he is just venting
h"mfanger for being tuirhed'down?,
If so, fhy-should he be so unhap-j
py with Districts 3 and 5? The
record will show that they are the
only two Commissioners that
supported him for the job.

VFW Has Voice of Democracy Contest


"Students win more than
awards and scholarships when
they participate in the VFW Voice
of Democracy Scholarship Pro-
gram," said Roy Robinson of VFW
Post 10069 in discussing the
broadcast scriptwriting program
conducted annually by the Vete-
rans of Foreign Wars and its La-
dies Auxiliary.
In the 46 years that the VFW
and its Ladies Auxiliary have
been involved with the Voice of
Democracy Program, more than
6,000,000 high school students
have participated. Participants
write and then tape-record a
three-to-five, minute broadcast
script expressing their, views on
"My Voice in America's' Future."
From among the state winners,
national winners are chosen to
receive a total of over $78,500 in
scholarships.
"One of the greatest benefits
to young people who take part in
the program is that by thinking,
writing .and speaking up for their


country, they gain a better appre-
ciation of their obligation and
freedom in America," Commander
Robinson said.
Man Arrested for --
Child Sexual Battery
The Gulf County Sheriffs De-
partment arrested Ronald Ed-
ward Madison, Rt. 2, St. Joe
Beach last Wednesday and
charged him with sexual battery
of a minor child, and lewd and
lascivious acts on a minor child.
The charges cover a period of
more than two months. He is
charged with the violations in his
own residence on several occa-
sions.
Sheriff Al Harrison said Madi-

his arrest. The Sheriff investiga-
tion in the matter is continuing
with the possibility of additional
charges being filed. He is being
held without bond in the Gulf
County Jail.

Friends of the Library

Purchase Materials


The Friends of the Gulf
County Libraries held a general
membership meeting September
21 at the Port St. Joe Library.
The Friends have a history of
contributions in support of the li-
braries. A 60-volume collection of
American literature books was
obtained, along with a set of En-
cyclopedia Brittanica. A bead
maze was purchased for young
visitors to the library. Books were
donated in memory of the Nelson
family. The Friends sponsored
'The Folktellers", a two-act play
of humor and drama. Finally, a
recent contribution of $1,500.00

Young Supports Hammond!
Dear Friends,
I would like to let those people who voted for
me know that I am supporting Michael Ham-
mond in his commission race. I don't believe this
county can take four more years of Ed Creamer.
I encourage you to support Michael, because he
will do us a good job.
Sincerely,
David Young

TO THE VOTERS OF DISTRICT 3:
On Thursday, October 1, you will decide which
Democratic candidate you would like to represent
you on the Gulf County Board of Commissioners.
The right to vote is a privilege and should not
be taken lightly. Before you cast your ballot, I ask
you to think carefully about all aspects of running
your county government. An effective commission-
er has to be a good administrator, a mediator, and
above all have the experience and wisdom to han-
dle a ten million dollar budget efficiently and with
the least amount of burden on the taxpayers.
I would like to urge you to take into considera-
tion my record as your commissioner the last four
years and not just one or two decisions that may
have upset you. Gulf County government is seri-
qus business and it demands maturity, experience
d,3vwisdom. I would appreciate your support on
"ursday, Octqber 1. Vote to keep, Ed Creamer
y6ur County Commissioner for District 3.
Thank you,
ED CREAMER
County Commissioner, Dist. 3

ALBERT C. "AL" RAY

for County Commissioner Dist. 5
PD. POL. ADV. PAID FOR BY THE CAMP. ACCOUNT OF ALBERT C. RAY, DEM.
.


LET'S LOOK AT THE RECORD
Mr. Creamer has claimed that he has been responsible, at least in
part, for some of the following:
1. The White City Park ,
2. Restoration of the Highland View Water Tower so that there is
now available an additional 80,000 gallons of water for emer-
gencies.
3. The decrease in the amount of taxes that you pay by dropping
the village rate.
Let's look at these one by one:
1,. Mr.~Creamer'ssclaim to have helped construct the park in White.
City is like Paraguay claiming to have won World War Two. The
majority of what is there was there when Mr. Creamer came on
the board. He had no part in acquiring the land and the building
and 90 percent of the work done there has been done with
funds acquired by the St. Joseph's Bay Historical Society and
the Gulf County Parks Planning Commission through grants
from the state and federal government. The real thanks goes to
people like Mrs. Ida Ethel Browne, Mrs. Betty McNeill, Mrs.
Margaret Smith; Mrs. Mary Belin, Mrs. Mabel Stone, Mrs. Edith
Stone, Mr. Jesse Stone, Mrs. Nancy Howell, Mr. Jake Belin and
the other members of the Historical Society as well as the many
other who have not been recognized for their efforts by anyone.
Mr. Creamer's greatest contribution to the Gulf County Parks
system has been to abolish the Parks Commission. In doing so,
Mr. Creamer killed the efforts to improve the park at Beacon Hill
as well as removed the possibility that the concerned citizens
who were originally responsible for getting the parks, could con-
tinue the work they started so many years ago.
2. Mr. Creamer boasts of the Highland View Water Tower, its
80,000 gallon capacity and how good it looks. What he has not
told you is that at this very moment, the tower is empty.
3. Mr. Creamer boasts of dropping the millage rate this year but
does not tell you that he voted to raise it last year. One of the
reasons that the commission was able to lower the millage was
by cutting services, so that the public now pays out of county
companies, for services they formerly received from the
County. The net effect of this is actually taking more money out
of the pockets of most Gulf County Citizens.
.When you look closely at what Mr. Creamer has said in this cam-
paign, his major accomplishments turn out to be the work of others
and his cuts in taxes are really increases.
This campaign gives you a clear cut choice, a choice for progres-
sive change or for more of the same. Mr. Creamer believes age is
an issue in this campaign. However, simply growing older doesn't
necessarily bring you wisdom and maturity. Nor does it give hones-
ty and integrity and this is what this campaign is about. This is the
real issue; honesty, integrity and the willingness to do the will of the
people.
Now The Choice Is Yours. You Decide Which Candidate Will
Uphold These Moral Values. You have my word that I will and I
believe that a man's word is his bond. ,
Sincerely,

Ray said the Commission has
performed a major overhaul on
the Highland View and Beaches

which didn't work. "That included

county has put the systems on a
pay their own way basis and have
employed a full time maintenance
man to keep the systems operat-
ing properly.
Ray pointed out that garbage
collection service was now availa-
ble throughout the County, ser-
viced by a private contractor.
'The customer now pays for his
individual service," Ray said.
Ray pointed to such accom-
plishments as the road paving
program just completed, combin-
ing the Road Department and
Mosquito Control under a single
department, at a considerable
savings in tax money.
Gulf County finally had its
Comprehensive Plan adopted by
the State of Florida, after some
three years of negotiating.
Add to that, considerable
work in parks and playgrounds at

BURSITIS IS A
BURSA INFLAMMATION


A bursa is a small sac, filled with a slippery fluid. It is
located between two body parts that move upon one
another. They occur in several parts of the body and serve
the same purpose as a bearing. The bursa near the ligaments
of the shoulder joint is a frequent pain causer.
Rest and treatment are usually required to reduce the
inflammation and enable the bursa to regain its slippery
quality. You can save yourself a lot of future pain by
visiting your Doctor.

Port St. Joe's Sharks started
their season about like David go-
ing against Goliath without a
slingshot. Chipley's 240 pound
average line proved to be more
than the Sharks could easily han-
dle as they lost their season
opener 27-0.
Chipley scored twice in the
first quarter as the Sharks mar-
shalled their forces and brought
their defense to bear on the dev-
astating attack. The Tigers man-
aged one touchdown in the third
and one in the final quarter with
the Sharks denying them every
inch of the way.
The team never gave up and
drove the ball into Chipley's end
of the field, getting into scoring
position three times during the
game. But again the big Chipley
line came to bear and stopped the
Sharks cold when they had to.
Port St. Joe's running attack had
a rough time picking up yardage
with Kevin Lee bulling through
the line for a total of 22 yards,
and Sandy Quinn getting off a
long 46-yard gainer.
In the third period Sandy
Quinn broke loose around right
end helped by an. Eric Ramsey
block and sailed down the side
line for 45 yards before he was fi-
nally pushed out of bounds. A
Chipley roughness penalty gave
the Sharks 15 more yards to the
14 yard line. But the Sharks
could only get to the six yard line
before they lost the ball on
downs.
The Tigers scored two touch-
downs one offense against the
Sharks, on a two yard plunge by
Cox and another one-yard run by
Leverette. Their other scores

The Wewahitchka Gators
took one on the chin last Friday
night as they traveled to Bonifay
to meet the Blue Devils.
Playing the Blue Devils for
the first time on their schedule,
the Gators took a 42-6 whipping
from the Devils.
The Devils scored in every
quarter-twice in the second and
fourth-while the Gators were
putting six points on the score-
board in the final period.
The Gators had seven first
downs in their loss and had 62
passing yards and 62 running
yards for their offense. The Ga-
tors fumbled only once and were
penalized nine times for 75 yards.
Wewahitchka will get back in
their own league Friday night as
they travel to Greensboro to meet
the Bulldogs in a conference
game.

came on a 24 pass interception
return when Wagner stepped in
front of the Shark receiver to pick
off Maxwell's pass. But the final
touchdown came with a minute
left to play with the Sharks strug-
gling to gain possession of the
ball.


The Sharks other two scoring
threats came when a pass from
Jason Maxwell to Desmond Bax-
ter was knocked down in the end
zone. The second was on Port St.
Joe's first possession of the
fourth period when Maxwell com-
pleted a pass to Baxter at the Ti-
ger 48. After a Chipley penalty of
pass interference and an 11-yard
toss from Maxwell to Bryan Butts
the Sharks had the ball at the 13.
Kevin Lee was hit hard causing a
fumble at the Chipley 14 to end
the threat.
The Sharks had 81 yards of


offense while the Tigers rolled up
293. One bright spot for the
Sharks was that they played
practically penalty free football in
their first game of tle season.

After reading these articles,
the members of Gulf County's 4H

Lunchroom Manager
Demonstrates Bread Making
In the third grade's science
unit on simple living things, one
of the things we study is simple
one-celled organisms like yeast
and mold. Mrs. Georgia Peak,
lunchroom manager, showed the
children how yeast is used in
bread making. A single yeast cell
4 is too small to see without a mi-
croscope, but we got to see the
work of a group o yeast cells. Af-
ter the bread had baked, Mrs.
Peak gave each child one small
roll. It was wonderful to say the
least. Now that section of the
chapter will be a whole lot easier
to understand. Thanks, Mrs.
Peak!

City Streets:Named After Territorial


Giants of Port St. Joe's Early History

BEST HOUSE ON THE BEACH
St. Joe Beach, Florida


This is the twelfth in a series of articles
of Harvest of History.
Probably the most traveled avenues in
Port St. Joe are Reid and Long Avenues.
The following information containing the
biographies of two of the famous men of the
signers of Florida's First Constitution for
whom the avenues are named is from the
book Territorial Giants. Florida's Founding
Fathers by Louise M. Porter and Charles B.
Smith.

Robert Raymond Reid, President of Flori-
da's First Constitutional, Convention and
Delegate from St. Johns' County was born in
Beauford District, Prince William Parish,
South Carolina, September 8, 1789. He was
the son of Robert Raymond Reid, Sr., who
had come to this country from Ireland.
Young Reid was graduated from law col-
lege at Columbia, South Carolina and prac-
ticed law in .Augusta, Georgia. At the age of
27 he became Judge of the Burke County,
Georgia Superior Court. Later he represent-
ed Georgia in the United States House of
Representatives.
When 21 years of age, Robert Raymond
Reid married Anna Margaretta McLaws on
April 13, 1811. Their first daughter, Janet,
was born the following year. They had four
more children, James, Florida, Rosalie, and
Robert Raymond. In 1825, 14 months after
Robert Raymond's birth, Mrs. Reid died.
In 1829, Robert Raymond Reid married
Elizabeth Napier D. Randolph who died
three years later in childbirth. They had no
surviving children.
Despondent, Reid wanted to leave the
scenes of his unhappiness and through
friends was appointed by President Andrew
Jackson in 1832 as Federal Judge of East
Florida. Reid had voted for Jackson as a
presidential elector in 1828. He moved with
his family to St. Augustine and in 1837 he
married Mary Martha Smith.

and Mrs. Bill White of Port St.

When .the first Constitutional Conven-
tion assembled in St. Joseph on December
3, 1838, Delegate Reid from St. Johns
County was elected President of the Conven-,
tion by a one vote margin over Delegate Wil-
liam P. Duval of Calhoun County. Much has
been written of Reid's dignity and eloquence,'
as presiding officer of the Convention but no:
description of him can, compare with that
written by a fellow Delegate shortly after, the
Constitution was signed.
"After the Convention had adjourned
and most of the members had departed, one
of the Delegates remained over for a few
days, and before leaving wrote a letter to the
editor of the St. Joseph Times. It was reprint-
ed in the St. Augustine News of March 2,
1839. The writer's identity will probably nev-
er be known, for he used a nom de plume;
signing himself "Ruminator". The following
excerpt is quoted from the "Ruminator".""
"'There was one in that Convention, a
real orator. There was, in that body, many
men of comprehensive understanding and
sterling talent and great information, but I
speak of this one as an orator. If I might
venture a comparison, I would liken him to,
an ancient Grecian column, hewn out of
pure Parian, the pedestal of perfect propor-
tions. The shaft presenting masses of plain
, surfaces, yet chastened by those far-famed
Corinthian capitals, wrought by the most ex-
quisite skill into forms that seem to match a
grace beyond the need of Art, 'Captivating
the eye and ravishing the taste'. Do you ask
who he is? Can it be any other than Hon.
Robert Raymond Reid, President of the Con-
vention? From the first day I heard him in
the Convention, speak of the sufferings of
the East, I thought of Aeneas, relating the
story of his country and his own perilous ad-
venture, before the assembled court of the
beautiful and accomplished Carthaginian
queen. If I might presume to offer an epitaph'
for him it would be one selected from Sterne,

an author,;; who, I believe, is admired by the
Judge hiriself, for what judge, Mr. Editor,
but must admire him. It is this:
Men q[genius. tread lightly on his ashes,
For he. uas your brother'.
But I wish he may live a thousand years,
or at least that It may be long, aye, long, be-
fore it shall 'devolve on anyone to perform
over him, that sacred office."
Judge Reid served continuously as Fed-
eral Judge of East Florida from 1832 until
December, 1839, at which time he was ap-
pointed Governor of the Territory of Florida
by President Martin Van Buren. As Governor
he advanced the cause of statehood and led
the opposition to splitting Florida into two
sections.
Robert Raymond Reid's personal life was
filled with tragedy. The death of his first two
wives has been mentioned. In 1839 he lost
his daughter, Janet. During the same year
his son James; second child by his first wife,
perished in a sea disaster. James Reid was a
graduate of the United States Naval Acade-
my at Annapolis. He was commanding the
U.S. Navy Vessel Sea Gull which went down
with all hands during a storm off Cape Horn.
In 1840 Governor Reid lost an infant son
but on the following year he welcomed into
the world a second son by his third wife,
Raymond Jenckes, who was to die in the
Civil War. This child was less than two
months old when yellow fever felled Govern-
or Reid, his daughter, and granddaughter.
Following Governor Reid's death, a Tal-
lahassee newspaper said his Presidency of
the Constitutional Convention was "the
brightest spot in his existence. .he arid
his colleagues :kept the Convention together
when it was threatened with dissolution and
the result -was, instead of a disgraceful act,
that splendid production of human and
combined wisdom, The Constitution of Flori-
da, an imperishable monument on which is
engraved as 'in letters of brass all that the
world has ever done for liberty.

County. Highland View PTO will
be supporting Perrine Elementary
School in Miami which was de-
stroyed. Perrine Elementary is
now held in split sessions with
Coral Reef Elementary ..
Our school PTO was deeply
concerned due to our own experi-
ence with Hurricane Kate in
1985. HighliandView Elemerintai
was forced to move temporarily to
the First Baptist Church in Port
St. Joe from Thanksgiving to
Christmas until our water dam-
aged school could be repaired.
At that time Tyndall Elemen-
tary School adopted our school by
giving support and supplies. We
feel that it Is now our turn to re-
spond to another school's needs.
Jack Rieder, who was former-
ly at the now destroyed Air Base
Elementary in Hoomestead, cur-,
rently works' with I the Adopt-A-
School Program in Dade County.
Mr. Rieder suggested that since
each school has different needs,
cash donations would be appro-
priate to purchase materials.
Any cash donations to this
fund will be forwarded to our
adopted school. Community in-
volvement is a part of our obliga-
tion in times of crisis. If you
would like to join us in our ef-
forts, please, contact Highland
View Elementary. Along with con-
tributions, messages of encour-
agement would be appreciated.

To Gulf County District 3 Voters From A Concerned Observer:


I haven't lived in Port St. Joe for 12 years now, but I still keep up with what's going on in my
hometown through my family and by subscribing to the STAR. I understand that my Father
is running for Gulf County School Board Member for District 3. Since I am now a registered
voter in another county, I can't vote for him. All I can give him is my moral support. That
is why I would like to respectfully ask the good people of Port St. Joe, St. Joe Beach, White
City, Highland View, and all the other voters in District 3 to do what I can't and vote for Paul
Sewell as your school board member. If you have any children in the Gulf County School
System, you owe them the best representation. My Father has lived and worked in Gulf
County for 30 years. I'm sure many of you know him, because he never meets a stranger.
He's a concerned candidate who is sincere in his dedication to serving the interest of Gulf
County's children. Anyone who has ever spent any time around my Father knows that he's
a "people person." He especially loves children and has always been an advocate for the
students of Gulf County Schools. He has also served as your school board member for 8
years. As far back as I can remember, my Father has regularly attended school functions.
This is something he loves and will continue to do, no matter the outcome of the election.
The Port St. Joe Sharks can always count on him to be one of their biggest supporters.


My Father is running for school board member because he has a genuine concern for the
children of Gulf County and can make the right decisions and provide strong leadership for
them. Please, forget about the petty bickering and controversy that seem to dominate any
election. That only clouds the real issue at hand. You are responsible for picking the
candidate who will do the best job for the children of Gulf County. And aren't the children
all that really matters? Remember, they will pass through the Gulf County School System
only once and I'm sure you, as a parent, want their impressionable years filled with the best
education possible.


I've never been moved to write a letter to a newspaper, until now. Although, you may think
I couldn't be objective enough to render an impartial recommendation, I would have to
disagree. At the age of 33, I can say I love and respect my father very much and I honestly
believe he is the best candidate for the job. After all, who knows the heart of a father better
than his own son? Although, I may have left Port St. Joe and settled in another town, no
matter where I may go in my life, HOME will always be where my Mama and Daddy are.
Please vote for Paul Sewell, School Board Member, District 3.


Sincrely,





Raym nd Sewell

SLove Bugs'll Getcha If

You Don't Watch Out


Yes, we are at it again. As soon as we got in motion, it seemed
as if we had never stopped for the summer. With added enrollment
came added 'possibilities. We now have the capability to have jour-
nalism as one of our electives for the seniors. Of the three seniors,
Brandy Williams and I, Anthony Lee, make up the class with Mrs.
Emilee Cutler as our teacher. We hope to have an article in The Star
at least every other week if not each week.
We have started a school newspaper; in order that the students
will be able to get to know the new teachers and each other. This is
a first for us here at Faith Christian. We have already interviewed
Amy Goebert and Miss Sissy Burke. Amy spent the summer doing
teen missions In Indiana. And to Miss Burke, we would like to wel-
come her as our fourth grade teacher. Also, a cookbook Is on the
presses. Mrs. Kriss Heyer has done a wonderful job correlating all
the many recipes. We would like to thank all of the people who do-
nated their recipes and their help.
We are growing larger all the time. In the near future, we intend
to build a new school building for the older students. Mrs. Michelle
Teat has begun teaching a chorus group, and Mrs. Susan Hill is
teaching an art class. Everything is going along smoothly. I have
seen some of the drawings and heard several songs, and they
looked and sounded great.
I know that the seventh through twelfth grades are excited. The
Wilds is coming. Now you may be wondering what the Wilds is.
Well, the Wilds is a Christian retreat nestled in the North Carolina
mountains. Every year, the older students take a trip to the Wilds
for a time away from it all and a time of spiritual encouragement.
Everyone comes back with a lot of stories and a different outlook on
life. We will include more interesting facts about the Wilds when
our-next article comes out.

Federal Funds Available

for Forest Conservation


Florida Agriculture Commis-
sioner Bob Crawford announced
that private landowners have .un-
til September 30 to apply for fed-
eral funds for forest land conser-
vation.
The funding is available un-
der the U.S. Forest Service's Ste-
wardship Incentives Program
(SIP) and is administered in this
state by the Florida Department
of Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices' Division of Forestry.
'The program is designed to
provide financial assistance for
landowners who perform conser-
vation practices on their proper-
ties," Crawford said. "SIP reim-
burses landowners up to 75
' percent of their expenses for
practices such as reforestation,
wildlife habitat improvement, soil
and water conservation and rec-
reation enhancement."
To qualify for the program,
landowners who hold 25 to 1,000
acres of forest land must develop


a Forest Stewardship Manage-
ment Plan covering their forested
. properties.
But landowners who do not
have a plan may. be eligible for
funds to have one developed by a
private natural resource manage-
ment specialist.
Once funding is approved,
landowners have up to 18
months to complete their conser-
vation practices. The USDA Agri-
cultural Stabilization and Conser-
vation Service handles' program
enrollment and landowner reim-
bursements at their county offic-
es.
For information, contact a lo-
cal Division of Forestry office or

less and do not sting or bite. They
feed on nectar and pollen of vari-
ous flowers, especially goldenrod
and clover. The flight of the love
bug is restricted to daylight
hours. At night they rest in low-
growing vegetation.
The problem associated with
the "love-bug" is that insects
spatter and stick to trucks and
automobiles traveling along high-
ways during daylight hours.
Windshields covered with these
insects obscure the driver's vi-
sion. These insects often clog the
cooling fins of the radiator and
may cause the car to overheat
when operated at high speeds for
extended periods of time. Also, if
the bugs are not cleaned off the
automobile in a reasonable period'
of time, they will damage the car's
paint finish.
Insecticidal control of the
"love bug" is impractical because
they occur over such a vast area.
Also, they appear to have no
known natural predator or para-
sites that will significantly reduce
their population.
There are several things that
can be done to lessen the prob-
lem facing motorists. Travel at

night or during the early morning
hours avoids the bug since they
do not become active until about
10:00 a.m. Traveling at slower
speeds reduces the number of
bugs that will be spattered. A
large screen placed in front of the
grill will 'keep the radiator fins
from clogging and will protect the
finish on the front of the car. If a
large screen is not used in front
of the grill, at least place a small
screen behind the grill in front of
the radiator.
Spattered bugs should be
washed off the car as soon as
possible.. "Love-bugs" are more
easily removed and the chance of
damaging the car's finish is less-
ened if the car has been recently
waxed. If they are left on an un-
waxed car for several days its fin-
ish will often be permanently
damaged. Soaking for several
minutes with water aids in their
removal. When "love bugs" are
numerous, some motorists
spread a light film of mineral or
baby oil over the front of the
hood, above the windshield and
on the grill and bumper. This
practice will make their removal a
simpler task.


Love bugs are small black
flies with a red thorax. The males
are 1/4 inch and the females are
1/3 inch in length. They are na-
