New Adventure In Telephone Dialing

Deadline Drawing Near to Select Long Distance Carrier Firm

Telephone calling will take on a new
dimension beginning Sunday, October 4,
with callers all over most of the nation
being required to dial the area code num-
ber when they are long distance dialing.
St. Joseph Telephone and Telegraph
Company has advised its customers that
they must dial the area code number
even when calling another number in the
904 area. Customers with automatic dial-
ing or programmed equipment such as
telephones, FAX machines, etc. are alert-
ed to the fact that the additional num-
bers must be programmed into their ma-
chines or their automatic dials will cease
to function after Sunday.

The reason for the change in phoning
method is that, believe it or not, we're
running out of numbers due to tremen-
dous growth in Florida. This has caused
the necessity for dialing the area code on
every long, distance, call regardless of
where it is. St. ,Joseph Telephone and
Telegraph Company sounded warnings of
this change back in July to give its cus-
tomers ample opportunity to program
their automatic dialing equipment.
This change in long distance calling
procedure has nothing to do with the ne-
cessity to select your long distance com-

pany, another requirement of telephoning
which is currently in progress. The long
distance company selection should be
made by October 13 or the customer will
arbitrarily be assigned a long distance
The St. Joseph Telephone Company
mailed a second ballot to its customers
this week for them to choose a carrier.
Also on the ballot is the name of the
company each customer will be assigned
to if they fail to make their own choice.
All of this is a part of the deregulation
system which allows a choice of long dis-
tance carriers presumably for savings or

keep all our people working,
though," Trammell said. "People
are coming to Florida in droves.
Many of them without jobs, hop-

course, our state is unable to fur-

but still they come, adding a fur-

October is a month of celebration and fun here in Port St.
Joe and Gulf County and we hope you take advantage of the sev-
eral events being offered. The month and the events are designed
to celebrate the end of summer and provide some fun and frolic
for our citizens and any others who happen to come our way.
First off, there is the Arts Festival sponsored by the Chamber
of Commerce and presented for our enjoyment. The first edition
of this festival, last fall, turned up a great number of interesting
things to look at last year. Our particular favorites were the
hand-made stringed instruments made and shown by Fead
Etheridge. We're sure you must have had a favorite, too.
The show featured paintings by local artists, photography,
carvings, needlework, etc., all of it done by local people. We
found out there is a wealth of talent here in Port St. Jde.
We have commented before on the fact that there are crafts-
men of a mechanical nature here in Port St. Joe, to repair just
about anything a person could own. They are here because they
work for the AN Railroad, St. Joe Forest Products Company, Ari-
zond Chemical Company, St. Joseph Telephone Company, Pre-
miere Services, Vitro Services or General Chemical. All of these
firms have men and women of different and diversified crafts
working for them.
The talents are just as varied and just as expert in the arts,
as you will see, with the showing of the Arts Festival.
The craft festival will also display many talents of still anoth-
er dimension. It is another event of October you absolutely won't
want to miss. The craft show is in its third year and has been a
popular week end every year.
'The Tapper Golf Tournament is a popular event for October.
Completely filled each year, the tournament continues to draw
golfers of every calibre to play in the contest and enjoy the week
end of social activities accompanying the tournament.
Then, later in the month, the Chamber of Commerce is spon-
soring an old fashioned pig picking celebration in the grand ball-
room of the old Hobbs Hotel in uptown Port St. Joe. It will fea-
ture barbecued whole pigs and the trimmings. The evening is
being held for entertainment and as a fund-raiser to help fi-
Snance Port St. Joe's entry in the nationwide Mainstreet Program.
Holding it in the "ballroom" is for atmosphere and toemphasize
the need for a Mainstreet designation for Port St. Joe.
So, there's plenty for everybody to do during October. Be
sure to take advantage of them.

Support Scouts' Stand

We're taking our editorial pen in hand to urge you to cease
doing business with Levi Straus Company, Bank of America,
Wells Fargo Bank, Lotus Development and Recreational Equip-
ment, Inc.
We are asking you to do this, in addition to your current boy-
cott of Time-Warner products, to protest their "Cop Killer" video,
performed by Iced Tea.

Theae,firms have .put the pressure on the Boy Scouts of
America to abandon values they have held for 82 years, or face a
loss of their sizeable contributions. The Boy Scouts have taken a
strong stand for teaching traditional American family values.
The Scout Oath and Law have served as guideposts for more
than 88 million young people as they met a challenging life. Boy
Scouts have never denied atheists, homosexuals or others with a
different life-style the right to pursue it but not as a Boy
The Boy Scouts are having their values, their acknowledged
belief in God, their patriotism, their insistence on living a clean
life, challenged by these groups. They would force the Boy
Scouts to officially remove barriers to atheists, homosexuals and
others not now eligible for Scout membership, to join.'
These aforementioned firms are putting pressure on the
Scouts by threat of withholding financial support, if they fail to
relax their requirements for membership, to allow these people
to join.
Even the California Superior Courts have upheld the Boy
Scouts' right to maintain their standards of membership, saying
that these standards were important to communicate their val-
For the Boy Scouts to be coerced-yes, forced-to change
their values of long standing is unthinkable and they are not
knuckling under to the pressure. Good for them!
It would be a sad day for America if the Boy Scouts could no
longer build strong character by giving filiality to God and Coun-
try simply to accommodate a group of mis-fits.

I Married Above Myself

See, she's acting like this
meal thing is no big deal. Well.
I'm not spending any money to
get myself out of this one. As a
matter of fact, it's kind'a her
fault. She's suppose to_ know:
when I'm going to eat somewhere
else. Didn't we feed the team on
Tuesday nights last year? It was
the same with our anniversary.
Why, she had a whole month
leading up to it in which she
could have dropped me a hint.,
She mostly always stays two
steps ahead of me. You know
what I mean? She picks out the
shirt I want to wear. And if I go
home in the afternoon thinking
about chicken, more often than
not, she's got it shaked and
baked, broiled, fried, stuffed, sau-
teed or buffaloed. She only watch-,
es those love stories on T.V. when
I'm not around. When I'm there
she likes Burt Lancaster, John
Wayne and the Atlanta Braves.
She sees I'm about to be thirsty
and she gets the tea. I tell you,
it's uncanny. I think she learned,
that in wives school somewhere...
or maybe it's just that I'm so easy
to live with.......
The more I think about it the
more I realize she's made the mis-
take! Why would she cook when
I'm not going to be here? She

could have asked if we were going
to eat before we got home. Boys, I
tell you, if you work at it hard
enough, you can rationalize any-
thing. Perhaps you are having a

From Art and Craft Festivals to Halloween; Oct. Is Fun Month

THIS WEEK IS full of all kind
of good things.- It is a bonanza
week, in some respects.
First, it the first week of Octo-
ber. October, itself is full of all
kinds of good things. October is
one of the best months of the
year, bar none.
October is the month in
which dove season begins, it's the
month of the World Series and
the month in which the leaves be-
gin to change color.
Of course, it's the month in
which the leaves begin to fall, too.
I learned the other day that a
sizeable tree will shed a half mil-
lion leaves by the end of fall. I
don't know who counted them,
but I'll take his word for it. Rak-
ing the leaves from under the ma-
ple tree in my front yard leads me
to believe there is at least a half
million leaves on that prolific
My pecan tree, in the back
yard has already started to shed
its leaves for the fall. There,

again, is approximately another
half million leaves.
People from all over the na-
tion flock to the mountain states
of north Georgia, North Carolina
and Tennessee, in order to see
the leaves change color. The peo-
ple of north Georgia, North Caro-
lina and Tennessee are all happy
about this because the month of
October helps turn their pockets
a bright, shiny gold.

means the dove hunters are able
to oil their shotguns and take to
the fields in search of the fast-

flying pigeons. There's no sport
quite like dove hunting. Not only
are the birds hard to hit [especial-
ly for me] but they are pretty ta-
ty also.
Some people just live for dove
season to begin and they
aren't truly happy until the sea-
son comes in.
I'll be especially happy when
dove season comes in this year,
since I get this splint off my hand
the day before. For the first time
in a month, I'll be able to take a
full shower, and wash under my
left armpit. It's beginning to get
ripe under there. All day long, I
keep getting whiffs of a rancid

OCTOBER ALSO brings the
epitome of baseball-the World,
It looks like at least a part of
the World Series is going to be
played right here in our own
backyard again. I'm going to try
for tickets, just in case the Series
' is played in Atlanta again this
year. I have never seen a World
Series and I want to see at least
one. October is my chancel
I applied for two tickets Sat-
urday. Now, the Braves have to
keep winning and bring the Se-
ries to Atlanta, once again. They'll
only let you have two and they
cost $40.00 each.
To combine the two best'
things about October into one en-
joyable activity, I have squatted'
many Saturdays in a cornfield or
peanut patch with a transistor ra-
dio in my pocket, listening to the
World Series and watching for a
dove to fly by.

about the month of, October is
that it means cooler days and
cool nights. It's. almost the end of
the air conditioning season.
There's nothing like the cool
days of October to start the old
juices to flowing' once again.
Summer .just about. shuts me
down cold. 'It takes about, two
weeks of a pleasant October to,.
get going once again.
I told you I haven't been able
to wash under my left armpit for
a full month. Well, during the
month of October, there isn't as
much need to. I can 'hike my arm
into the air without causing eve-
ryone standing within 10 feet, to
pass out.
October has been known to
have some hot days for us, but
they're, over in a hurry.. I have
stood in dove fields' on a Satur-
day, with a transistor radio, lis-
tening to the World Series, and
have a river of sweat trickle down
my back also.

which the leaves take on a riot of
color in the mountains and there
will be thousands of folks jump in
their thousands of cars and take
a sight-seeing trip to the moun-

Pearls of Wisdom
Below are a few observations that may or may not be true, ac-
cording to how you look at them. They are all semi-original and
poured forth from the mind of Shad Phantry this early morning of
September 26, 1992, or whatever year this is.
*If you bounce a tennis ball on an ant crawling across a flat
concrete floor, and bounce it hard enough, it will kill the ant... most
of the time.
*When you hit a golf ball and it doesn't go straight on the line
you intended, it is not a perfect shot. It is called a slice, hook or a
shank. Kinder words for slice and hook are "fade" and "draw". These
words are usually used when the person hitting the ball gets lucky.
*The 12-year-old boy who divorced his parents has started
something, you just hide and watch. I'm not taking sides, but that
could have been handled differently, I think. If my kids ever try to
divorce me they might be in for a surprise: I won't contest it!
*If you drive safely and stay the proper distance behind the ve-
hicle in front of you, some heathen will pass you and compel you to
drop back even more. If you continue to let people pass you and cut
in, soon you will be the last one in line and late for work.
*If you start shaving as a young man, you will have to continue
shaving for the rest of your life. If you start shaving and stop, you
will grow a beard and people will think you are strange or different.
Honest, they will!
*If a cow gives birth to a calf and is not milked after the calf is
weaned, the cow will "dry up" and produce no more milk. A dried-
up cow is not a bull, if that's what you are thinking.
*Some years ago, cow droppings were used to fertilize farm
crops. They ai-e still used today, but in a more refined way, if that is
possible. I sometimes think about that as I eat tomatoes, corn and
other vegetables. Do you?
*When rain falls out of a clear sky, the devil is beating his wife.
over the head with a frying pan. That's what I was told as a young-
ster and as far as I'm concerned it's as good an explanation as Any
I've heard.

Cong. Peterson Taking Names of

corner in Florida. We have a tight
budget, but it's adequate," Tram-
mell said.
Trammell said Gulf County
has seen some results from state
projects in the county during the
past few years. "Gulf County will
soon have all new bridges on its
highways, which is a great ac-
complishment. Several new and
improved parks dot the county
and should improve the quality of
life here.,"
"All of this is good," Trammell
said, "But I am concerned that we
are ninth from the bottom in edu-
cation "spending, even though a
full half our state revenue goes
for education. Not only that, but
we are dead last in social servic-
es, all of which points to the fact
that we are a low tax state. I hope
we remain a low tax state, while
we do something about these real
needs, as well."

in Tallahassee. All high school
students interested in attending a
United States Service Academy
are urged to participate in this
Academy Day offers students
and their parents a unique oppor-,
tunity to gain first hand knowl-
edge about academy experience.,
Representatives from the Air
Force, Coast Guard, Merchant
Marines, West Point, and Naval
Academies will be on hand to an-
swer specific questions and dis-
cuss the academy nomination
process. Also, representatives
from Florida State University and
Florida A&M University ROTC
units will be on hand to inform
students of the opportunities pro-
vided by their programs. .
Peterson has sent academy
application packages to each high
school in the district and urged
continued involvement between
academies, school administra-
tors, and teachers to make the
event as informative as possible.
The Congressman characterizes
Academy Day as "a rare opportu-
nity for students to gain insight
and information that they would
not find elsewhere."

please contact Patrick Edmond at
Congressman Peterson's Talla-
hassee office, 904/561-3979.

Something Old,


Something New.


There's something new to remember. From now on,
when you make long distance calls within the 904 area,
dial 0 or 1 + 904 and then the number you're calling.
Florida's tremendous growth has created a shortage
of telephone numbers. By dialing the area code on every
long distance call, numbers are freed up for new busi-
nesses and residential customers.
So remember, when you dial long distance, be sure to
use the area code. And if you have a 904 long distance
number on any programmed services, like Speed Dial-
ing, Call Forwarding, or even a FAX machine, now's the
time to reprogram them.


NOTE: Dialing 0 or 1 + the 904 area code
and the number is mandatory on
October 4,1992.

As I reflect back on our 30 years together, it seems only yesterday
that we' were young and our daughters smalf children. Npw, our
daughters tell me that they wish they could find someone like their fa-
ther. 'That's a tough one because I don't believe there are many men like
AlR(ay. Our girfs have never said 'don't tefl ad', rather they wouldgo
to you with whatever problem they had, knowing full well they might
be disciplined or reprimanded, but nonetheless, with, confidence that
you would listen to them, make a fair decision, with their best interest
in, miind..' matter what difficulties we have experienced, you have
guided us through tough times, always putting other's ieedsfirst.
I wish everyone could know the AlRay I know. I have seen you
react to adversity with wisdom and dignity, and I have seen you ago-
nize and pray over tough decisions that had to be made.
Happy Anniversary 30 years.,

Tuberculosis on

Bthe Increase

*i.4f. Byo
,; '- Elizabeth q. Jones, M.D.

Until recently, tuberculosis as a disease had become so rare
until every time you told a child he needed a 'T.B. test" he though
you said 'T.V. test" and thought it was a test to see how iMuch, tele-
vision he was watching.
For the last several years, more and more is being reported on
drug resistant tuberculosis and an increased 'number of cases are
being reported. This is a particular problem in AIDS patients.
Almost every city child, in the past, would at some point devel-
op a positive tuberculin test. After the development of the first anti-
tuberculin drugs, it was discovered one could prevent the full blown
development of tuberculosis by treating the child who had recently
converted from a negative tuberculin test to a positive tuberculin
test. The treatment meant medicine daily for a full year but it was
a great step forward. This preventive program, along with a vigorous
treatment program for those with active disease, decreased the
number of cases to such a small number that many of the large old
tuberculosis hospitals were converted to other use.
Currently most physicians will use a 'Tine test" for .screening
patients in the office. This test is easy because one needs only to
press the prongs against the child's skin and it does not hurt. While
it is easy, it does sometimes over react. There may be positive tests
that need to be studied further with the intradermal (into the skin)
A parent should not panic if a child has a positive tine test.This
just means it needs to be studied further with theJintradermal test
and that is usually negative.
Even if a child does have a positive T.B. test this usually means
he has been exposed to someone with tuberculosis, but if he is
treated he will not go ahead and develop tuberculosis.
Tuberculosis has not been a problem in our area for years, but
with increased cases elsewhere there is always the possibility of
spread. Careful attention to good health practices with' frequent
screening tests should keep our area free of tuberculosis.

County Commissioner

District 5
I ask that you look at the experiences, qualifications, and
past records of involvement of each candidate.
My past record of Involvement and qualifications include,
but are not limited to:
-working for the past 8 years as a league officer and
coach in the Port St. Joe Dixie Youth baseball program.
-being on a state grant committee for the Improvement
of the 10th Street parks in Port St. Joe.
-5 years of being in business in Gulf County.
I believe with the experience of having been in business,
and my familiarity with the people of Gulf County, we can re-
store a confidence in the Gulf County Commission:

Vote Thursday for a candidate

with no conflicts of interest,

or political ties.

Dear Friends:
Since my last ad appeared in The Star, the
Highland View Water Tower now' has some water
in it. If this campaign would only last a few more
weeks, then maybe we could see it completely full.
Mr. Creamer has also worked on the White
City Park. He put up a brand new sign that cost
$1230.00. But the thing is, the name on this sign
is not the one the Gulf County Parks Planning
Commission and the St. Joseph Historical Society
(including members, the late Mr. Bernard Prid-
geon, Sr. and his wife, the late Mrs. Eula Pridgeon)
selected for this park.
Today is the day of decision and the decision

is clear. Honesty, integrity and the willingness to
do the will of the people or more of the same.
If you want a real change and honest repre-
sentation on the County Commission, then I
would appreciate your vote and support.

* Seafood Producers

Needing Support

on New Mullet Rule

The next meeting of the Sea-
food Producers and Consumers
Association will be held Monday,
October 5th at 7:30 p.m. ET at
the Union Hall located on Sixth
Street in Port St. Joe. Agenda
items will Include the upcoming
Cabinet Meeting on October 20th
concerning the mullet rule, and
plans for a booth at the Indian
Summer Seafood Festival at Pan-
ama City Beach.
Since the forming of the Ma-
rine Fisheries Commission, the
commercial fishing industries' in-
come has been in decline, accord-
ing to the Seafood Producers As-
socalon. The rules the MFC make
are coming too rapidly for fisher-
men to adjust. Before they have
time to adjust to one rule, they
are facing the next one. The MFC
* does not give the rules time to see
if they are working.
The income from mullet is

about all the fishermen have left,
and the mullet rule that was just
passed will be devastating to the
industry and will put a financial
burden on Gulf County.
The Seafood Producers and
Consumers Association was
formed in this County to try to in-
sure fair treatment for all con-
cerned, and is not just for fisher-
men. It is for anyone who is in
any way dependent on seafood as
an income or source of food. The
Association is aware that it has
had strong support from the
County. But now it needs that
support up front to help stop the
mullet rule at the Cabinet meet-
ing on October 20th.
Please attend the next meet-
ing of the Seafood Producers and
Consumers Association and find
out what you can do to help de-
feat this rule.

To the Citizens of District 3 and all of Gulf County:
I do not believe that the good people of Gulf County
appreciate a candidate running a negative campaign in
order to be elected to a public office. I have not, nor do I
intend to try to defeat my opponent in that manner, but I
feel I must defend myself on certain things that my
opponent is saying about me.
I appreciate the contributions that my long time
friends and supporters have donated to my campaign. I
have had local, and other areas supporting me, but in
no way were they intended to influence me in any way.
They are simply contributions from long time friends and
also business associates of my son, Eddie Creamer in
Panama City.
My record as your County Commissioner and my
financial records are open books for anyone to see. I
have nothing to hide frbm the public, and anyonne that
knows me very well will attest to that. If you have any
questions concerning contributions or any other matter,
please check the County Clerk's office or the Supervisor
of Elections office.
I would appreciate your continued support in my bid
for re-election. as your County Commissioner, District 3.

To the Editor:
In response to a paid political
advertisement in which we were
mentioned, I would like to use
this method of an unpaid nonpo-
litical reply. As a long-time mem-
ber of St. Joseph Historical Socie-
ty I want to express my gratitude
for the complete support and
cooperation we have always re-
ceived from the Board of County
Commissioners, the City Commis-
sion as well as our legislative rep-
resentatives. Our projects could
not have been accomplished with-
out their help. The Historical So-
ciety's purpose is to preserve ac-
curately our past in order to
enhance our present and future.
The projects we have undertaken
toward that goal include the Old
Cemetery, The Constitution Mu-
seum and addition, various mark-
ers around the county as well as
the County Parks, and reference
materials in the Public Library.
Currently the Society is involved
in re-publication of Ruby Lee
Hall's book, The Great Tide. We
are totally non-controversial- and
feel some resentment at being
even indirectly involved.

To the Editor:
Your two (2) recent articles
on the old coastal steamer, Tar-
pon, were interesting and brought
back memories. However, I be-
lieve they were a bit misleading in
alluding to the old vessel calling
at Port St. Joe. To my knowledge,
she never called here during my
life time. My grandfather was one
of the mates on her on two (2)
separate occasions and no men-
tion was ever made in the family
about her calling here. Since your
articles I have asked some older
residents of St. Joe and Apalachi-
cola about this and no one knew
of her ever calling here.
I have attached a copy of her
schedule and you will note that

The girls have fun while learning
values that will help them to
make responsible decisions
throughout their lives.
A survey was taken of the
Council to discover the role Girl
Scouting plays in developing suc-
cessful women in our communi-
ties. The survey revealed 68 per-
cent of the women of distinction
on the Council were once Girl
Scouts. Among these women was
Charlotte Maddox Pierce, School
Board Member, District 5, Gulf
County. "Because two ladles, Sal-
ly Malone and Pauline McGill,
were willing to give of their time
as troop leaders I had the oppor-
tunity to participate in a varied
program thus instilling in me the
value of team work, responsibili-
ty, leadership, and protecting the
environment," stated Mrs. Pierce.
Girl Scouting was an important
part of their lives while growing
up and continues to be today.
There are three Brownie
Troops in the Port St. Joe area
'and also a mixed age level troop
in North Port St Joe. There is a
'need for leaders of the older Girl

Law Requires

Children to

Wear Life


Effective October 1, all chil-
dren under the age of six years
will be required to wear personal
flotation devices while boating on
Florida's waterways.
The new state law applies to
infants and young children
aboard all private and commer-
cial motorboats, sailboats and
other vessels measuring less than
26 feet in length, when such ves-
sels are "underway," meaning at
all times except when anchored,
moored or aground.
The personal flotation devices
(PFD's) must be type I, II or III
Coast Guard-approved. Although
parents are responsible for pur-
chasing proper-fitting PFD's for
their children, boat owners and
operators ultimately will be held
responsible for compliance. Viola-
tors face a $35 fine for each in-
Major Kent Thompson, boat-
ing safety coordinator with the
Florida Marine Patrol, urges all
parents and boat owners to use
care in selecting the proper devic-
es for their youngsters.
"Read the label to make sure
the measurements are appropri-
ate for your child's size and
weight," Thompson said. 'To see
if the PFD fits property, fasten It
around the child and lift at the
shoulders. If it gives more than
three inches, it's too big. It's bet-
ter to go to a slightly smaller size
than to have one that's too big,"
he added.
'We can't stress enough the
importance of selecting a high
quality, proper-fitting device,"
Thompson said. Collared PFD's
are recommended for those chil-
dren who have a fear of the water,
and high-visibility colors (such as
fluorescents) should be consid-
ered when making a selection.
Whenever possible, PFD's should
be tested in shallow water to see
how they handle prior to any
boating trips.
Maintenance and storage of
the PFD's is important, too. The
devices must be in good, servicea-
ble condition at all times, and
must be readily accessible in an
emergency. They should not be
stowed in plastic bags, in locked
or closed compartments or have
other gear stowed on top of them.
For more information con-
cerning the new law regulating
use of PFD's, or for other boating
safety regulations, contact the
Florida Marine Patrol at (904)

and Fresh Water Fish Commis-
sion at (904) 488-6257.

Wakulla De-Fins the Sharks

In a game that was much
closer than the score indicated
the much improved Sharks gave
class 3A powerhouse Wakulla
War Eagles all they wanted in Fri-
day night's football action.
First year head coach John
Hicks was pleased with the effort
and improvement the Sharks
showed against Wakulla even
though .they lost 40-18. The
Sharks actually had two yards
more total offense than Wakulla
but allowed the War Eagles to
convert three Shark mistakes. into
points for them. Hicks empha-
sized the need for limiting mis-
takes, noting that the margin be-
tween winning and losing against
good teams was usually which
team made the first mistake.
St. Joe kicked off to start the
game and shut down the Wakulla
running attack on their first pos-
session. But a 20 yard run on
their next possession put the War
Eagles on top 7-0, with 7:20 left
in the first quarter.
The Sharks showed what
they were made of as they an-
swered the score with a nine play,
60 yard scoring drive of their
own. The score was set up by
Randy Smith's kick-off return to
the 40 yard line. Fullback Kevin
Lee provided the offensive punch
with runs of 15 and 25 yards giv-
ing the Sharks a first and goal at
the nine yard line. Sandy Quinn
carried the ball down to the three
yard line where quarterback Ja-
son Maxwell put .it the end zone
on an option play. The extra point
attempt failed leaving the Sharks

trailing 7-6 late in the first quar-
Wakulla put six more points
on the scoreboard in the second
quarter to carry a 13-6 lead into
As the second half got under-
way the War Eagle offense turned
a Shark miscue into a quick scor-
ing drive. Wakulla took a Shark
fumble on their own 35 yard line
and six plays later bulled into the
end zone to go up 21-6 on the vis-
iting Sharks.
St. Joe didn't lay down, tak-
ing the ball 67 yards on' their
next possession and once again
answering a War Eagle challenge
making the score 21-12 with 5:40
left in the third quarter. Sandy
Quinn grabbed an 18 yard touch-
down toss from Jason Maxwell to
cap the drive. Quinn also reeled
off a 35 yard run during the drive
and Maxwell connected with Des
Baxter for a 15 yard pass play to
set up the Shark score.
Later in the third quarter the
War Eagles turned another Shark
error into points. St. Joe was set
to punt with the ball resting on
its own 31 yard line when an er-
rant snap over the punter Eric
Ramsey's head, had the ball
downed on the Shark three yard
line. Wakulla powered the ball in
from there and took a 27-12 lead
into the final quarter of the game.
The Shark offensive unit took
it right back at 'em, starting a
drive from their own 35 yard line.
Maxwell scampered around the
left end on a keeper for 45 yards
all the way to the Wakulla 20.

Fullback Kevin Lee added 13
more yards setting up a first and
goal at the seven yard line before
Maxwell scored his second touch-
down of the game on a one yard
plunge. The try for a two-point
conversion failed and the Sharks
trailed 27-18.
,Wakulla managed to score
twice in the final period, oncee off
a 70 yard, 10 play drive, and
again with only 30 seconds left in
the game. With the Sharks
threatening deep in Wakulla terri-
tory, the War Eagles intercepted a
Shark pass and returned it 85

yards to seal a 40-18 victory.
Leading ground gainers for
the Sharks were Kevin Lee with
Bryan Butts one for 12 yards and
Josh Colbert one catch for 16
The Sharks will host the state
ranked 4A Rutherford Rams Fri-
day with game time at 8:00 p.m.

Saturday, the Port St. Joe

competed in the Maclay Invita-
tional in Tallahassee. Quincy-
Shanks won the meet with a
score of 23 points, Port St. Joe
placed second with 44 points,
Maclay came in third with 83
points, North Florida Christian
placed fourth with 103 points,
Lincoln Junior Varsity garnered

the 58 runners with a time of
17:12 for the three-mile race.
Bergen Bloomquist of Maclay
placed second with a time of
17:13, and Sam Grace of Quincy-

Dixon, 49th, 22:13; and Chad

Thompson, 52nd, 23:05.
"We really had a good meet,"
praised Scott Gowan, coach of
the team. "Our goals for the meet
were to finish among the top two
teams, have five runners under
19:00, and seven runners under
20:45. We achieved all three of
these goals. Also, every runner on
the team ran their season's best
Saturday," he continued.
This Saturday, the Sharks
will compete in the FSU Invita-
tional in Tallahassee at Seminole
Golf Course. This meet is the
largest meet held in the state
each year. Over 250-300 runners
from Florida, Georgia, and Ala-

Harvest of History: 13th of a Series

Long Ave. Named for Richard Long

This is the thirteenth in a series of arti-
cles of Harvest of History.
It is by coincidence that one of our long-
est avenues in Port St. Joe just happens to
be named after a man named Long.
Among the prominent pioneer planters
of Jackson County living between Robin-
son's Big Spring and the Natural Bridge, in
the Greenwood community was. Col. Richard
H. Long, a distinguished Georgian by birth.
Col. Richard Long was the son of Col.
Nicholas Long, a native of North Carolina
and pioneer settler of Wilkes County, Geor-
gia, coming to the county in 1785. Col. Nich-
olas Long made a fortune dealing in land not
only in Georgia, but also in Tennessee, and
North Carolina. In Wilkes County alone the
elder Long paid taxes on 20,000 acres of
land in 1794. The elder Col. Long and his

wife both died of tuberculosis in 1819. The
Longs were said to have been at the head of
society in that section of Georgia, and it was
a society that contained a number of cul-
tured gentlemen.
Col. Nicholas Long had two sons, one of
whom was Richard H. Long, who had every
advantage of education. Richard Long mar-
ried Nancy Hay, the daughter of Dr. Gilbert
Hay. He practiced law in Wilkes County,
Georgia and served that county in the Geor-
gia Legislature.
Col. Richard H. Long settled in Jackson
County, Florida shortly after Florida's pur-,
chase from Spain. He was a member of the
Territorial Legislative Council in 1837, 1838,
and 1840 and was president of the Council
during his latter term. He was one of the
four distinguished Jackson County Dele-
gates to the St. Joseph Constitutional Con-

vention in 1838.
In 1848 there was a revival of interest in
the project of linking the rivers with St. An-
drew Bay, which was first proposed by the
promoters of the Chipola canal in 1828. The
Florida and Georgia Railroad Co. was char-
tered in 1848 with an authorized capital
stock of $1,000,000. Col. Richard H. Long
was one of the, promoters and incorporators
of the proposed railroad.,
Col. Richard Long was the father of four
sons, Nicholas A. Long, Richard H. Long, Jr.,
Felix Gilbert Hay Long, and Thomas T. Long,
all prominent in Jackson County and Terri-
torial politics, the former of whom served as
Representative and Senator for many years
before and after Florida attained statehood.
A daughter, Rebecca, was the first wife of
George F. Baltzell.

Your Sheriff

The Sheriff must oversee a budget of approximately one million dollars and
supervise over twenty-five employees with a goal of providing the citizens of Gulf
County with the highest level of services and protection that can be produced from
this expenditure of funds and manpower. Accordingly, the Sheriff must be a capable
administrator and see that each dollar and employee is utilized in the most
appropriate manner. To do otherwise would waste precious resources that are
needed elsewhere.
Because of my background, I believe I am a capable administrator and can bring
considerable management skills to the Gulf County Sheriff's Office. I have an A.A.
degree from Chipola Junior College in Business Administration, and I spent
twenty-five years in management and eight years as Personnel Director for
Sylvachem Corporation. I served as Assistant Chief of the Port St. Joe, Fire
Department for, many years and as such successfully supervised men in dangerous
emergencies. Additionally,' I served on the Gulf County School Board for sixteen
years arid as chairman five of those years. This combination of training and
experience provides me with the necessary background for the management of large
sums of money and people.
In, addition to my training and experience in management, I am a Certified Law
Enforcement Officer. Two years ago when I decided to run for Sheriff, I made up my
mind that if I was going to undertake. this challenge I was going to be properly
prepared. I enrolled in.the Basic Law Enforcement Standards Program at Gulf Coast
Community College and underwent nine months of intensive law enforcement,
training. I attended classes Monday through Thursday from 7:00 p.m. to 11:00 .p.m. at
the college campus in Panama City. I spent every weekend studying my, materials
and working on class projects, and during this period of time I continued to work
full-time at Arizona Chemical. Nevertheless, I never wavered from my commitment
and my determination paid off because I graduated in the top five percent of my class
with a perfect attendance record.
Should the voters of Gulf County elect me as their Sheriff, I am now prepared to
hit the ground running and fully intend to do just that. I will not have to spend the first
nine months of my term attending Basic Law Enforcement Standards at the County's
expense. And for those of you who might think I intend to hide behind a desk and be
strictly an office manager, I can assure you that nothing could be further from the
truth. I fully intend to be a working Sheriff by being in the community and on the
streets with my officers. In doing so, I am certain there will be times when I will be
confronted with situations that are new to me; but I am not one to run from a
challenge, nor am I ashamed to ask for advice and help from those around me.
In summary, I am confident that with my willingness to work hard and your
willingness to assist me we can produce a Sheriff's Office that we can all be proud to
call our own.

Adequate Light

Needed by Plants

Nearly all forms of life need at
least some light to survive. Of
course, there are exceptions, but
they're certainly in the minority.

In contrast with such creatures
as blind-cove fish, which thrive in
perpetual darkness, plants are
extremely light dependent. With-

one of the most vital factors in
plant health, especially when try-

The most difficult elements to
control in house plant culture are
temperature, humidity, and light
with light leading the list. In fact,
poor lighting is the most common
cause of house plant failure. My

sheets of water poured in my

drenched and about two inches of
water filled my floorboard. With
.what dignity I, could muster, I,
drove off and went straight to a
bathroom with, hot air dryers,
where I stood for 15 minutes. As I
thought about it for a while, it
was rather funny. Made me really
miss Peter Sellers.

where a plant is between four and

Most indoor plants need .at
'least medium light. And, many
require high light conditions to
look their best. A few plants will
do well in low light areas. These
include many of the native tropi-
cal plants which will actually
"sunburn" If they're exposed to
high light intensities.
Light quality involves wave-
length, or the color of light a
plant receives. Plants can use
natural light, from the sun, or ar-
tificial li41ght, from fluorescent, in-
candescent, or special "grow-
light" bulbs. Although sunlight is

successfully to meet the needs of
plants grown indoors. Plants use
two wavelengths, or colors, of
light for growth red and blue.
Fluorescent tubes give off blue
light, incandescent bulbs give off
red, and grow-lights produce both
colors. When growing plants un-
der artificial light, either a combi-
nation of fluorescent and incan-
descent lights, )or grow-lights
alone will usually give good re-
Duration of exposure the
total amount of time a plant re-
ceives light is another impor-
tant factor. If a plant doesn't re-
ceive enough natural light,
artificial light sources can provide
the additional light necessary for
the plant's best growth. It's diffi-
cult to provide indoor light inten-
sities as high as those under
which a plant would grow best
naturally. But, it is possible to
compensate for this by increasing
thi light duration by exposing
a plant to artificial light for longer
periods of time.
In summary... most plants
are very light sensitive. They do
best when they're given exactly
the right amount, intensity, and
type of light they need. Definite
light requirements have been es-
tablished for a wide variety of
plants. You'll be more successful
with indoor plants if you find out
what these requirements are for
the plants you're trying to grow.
