By REV. JERRY HUFT, Rector of St. James Church
The Rt. Rev. Charles F. Duvall, Episcopal Bishop of the Dio-
cese of the Central Gulf Coast, made his annual visitation to St.
James' Church Sunday, March 28, and celebrated an historic
event with the church during his visit. Ground was broken for
the church at its new location. Within the year the congregation
expects to occupy an entirely new facility, located at 22nd Street
and Garrison Avenue,
The proposed building was designed by Charles Gaskin of
Wewahitchka. The builder is Dennis Weaver, owner of Seacliffs
Beach Homes of Cape San Bias. Partial financing is by Citizens
Federal Savings Bank of Port St. Joe.
The people of St. James' Church and many visitors assem-
bled at the site for the ground breaking ceremony. There were
representatives from the Native American community, City Com-
mission, and other congregations at the festive event.
St. James' Church was chartered by the Territory of Florida
in 1835 as one of seven congregations forming the original Dio-
cese of Florida. Local historians note that the initial location of
the church was in close proximity to the new church location.
The congregation suffered decline with the old city of St. Joseph
and services became irregular. The congregation was renewed in
1934 and has flourished since that time.
Bishop Duvall opened the earth with three scoops of the
shovel, "In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the
Holy Spirit" as the congregation joined' with a loud "Amen."
Countless photos were taken to memorialize the event and the
crowd was dismissed with a blessing.
Special meetings have had
the County Commission involved
during the past. few days, con-
cerning several items of business
involving recycling of solid
*.v One of these-Items of bust-
ness was making arrangements
to get rid of a small mountain of
old tires which has accumulated
during the past year. The Florida
Department of Environmental
Regulation requires the tires to be
shredded and sold, or hauled to a
landfill for burial. The County
was able to sell their old tires last
year and is making an effort to
dispose of them this year to be
used as fuel or in a road paving
The County has received a
sum of money from the State of
Florida to help with the tires' dis-
posal, but the thinking of the
Commission is that it will not be
enough. The state collects a fee
each time a new tire is sold, to
pay for its disposal when it is
worn out. A portion of that money
is sent to each county in the state
to help with preparation for dis-

out of the ordinary.
Frenchie didn't get me any-

even a card. We did go to Abe

a barbecue my Sunday School
class was having at the farm of
one of the members. He had bar-

night, after the barbecue. When I
got back home Saturday after-
noon, I had a present waiting in
my chair. When I got the paper
off, I had a "Carole Feminine Ap-
parel" box, which could have or
could not have had a gift inside. I
didn't have the nerve to look. Two
days later, I received two birthday
cards, when I left some pointed
hints that I had experienced an-
other birthday and nobody came.
I got a "trick" birthday cake
which started playing "Happy
Birthday" when I cut into it. If
you think I was going to chance
eating it, you're mistaken. I might
be like the crocodile in Peter Pan

On the Right Track
To the Editor:
The County Commission is
on the right track by exploring an
alternative for water service to the
Beaches. It is approaching the
subject with considerable caution
Panama Canal Was An
John Frothingham, of Cham-
plaign, Illinois. showed the Rotary
Club a video he made on a recent
trip through the Panama Canal,
on board a ship. It took about
eight hours to traverse' the, canal
from one end to the other.
Frothingham gave some
background information concern-
ing the Canal and how It was

engineer! named DeLessups. as a
project for the French govern-
ment, the expense, yellow fever
and malaria, finally ground the
project to a halt after about nine
years of work.
Initially, engineers proposed
to build the waterway without
any locks, allowing the boats to

the most preliminary stage.
The primary concern, as ex-
pressed by Commissioners Tray-
lor, Yeager and Hammond is pub-
lic health. At the community
hearing last Wednesday at the
Beaches Fire Station these Com-
missioners unequivocably stated
safety was 'their first concern.
Only after the public health Issue
is satisfactorily resolved, will
these Commlssioners support an

least two major advantages may
inure to the benefit of the resi-
dents of the Beaches and Gulf
County. These advantages could
be guaranteed through a long

tem being installed would assure
a substantially higher water pres-
sure. This would significafitly en-
hance fire protection throughout

for the purchase of water would
be approximately. 75 cents less
per unit than the price being paid
now. Since the water system at
the. Beaches barely breaks even.
such a large savings on the cost
of water could mean the system
could be enhanced. Any large ex-
penditure at this point would re-
quire a subsidy from the general
revenue for .the entire County, a
residential rate increase or bor-
rowing. This predicament could
be avoided by the improved rate
Perhaps, the Commission
could obtain a written commit-
ment guaranteeing the current'
price per unit and volume. This
would not mean the Commission
would be required to exercise its
option. However, it would assure
the Commission that once the
public health concern is satisfac-
torily addressed, the advantages
that now appear to be available
would continue to be available.

The canal opened in 1914,
lifting ships 87 feet between the
oceans with a series of locks.
: Each lock uses 10 million gallons
of water to activate, all taken
from a large fresh water lake at
the highest elevation of the route
of the canal. The canal uses the
lake for about half of'its distance.
The Corps maintains a ship chan-
nel in -the lake for ocean-going
vessels to traverse.
All U.S. warships can use the
canal with the exception of air-
craft carriers which have flight
decks pointed at angles. The war-
ships navigate the canal with less
than a foot to spare in the width
of the locks.
Frothingham said it cost the
ship he was on, $12,000 in fees
travel through at sea level. The
distance and the excavation in-
volved made the idea impractical
and they settled on locks for the
canal. DeLessups. builder of the
Suez Canal had used-locks in this
project and proposed to use them
in the Panama Canal.
After the French quit working
on the canal. President Theodore
Roosevelt decided he wanted the
canal and set out to purchase It
for the United States. The Corps
of Engineers set about finishing
the project, after yellow fever and
malaria in the area were brought
under control. Health officials
didn't know the mosquito caused
yellow fever until the canal pro-
ject made it necessary to bring
the disease under control.

Spring Brings On A Host of
Zany and Lazy Activities
It's April and there are lots of
fun things to do. There are also
some very interesting facts about
the month. Here are just a few:
Making a hard boiled egg
There is more to hard-boiling
eggs than you think.
First, place the eggs in a pan
of cold water and add a touch of
vinegar, and cover. (Vinegar stops
cracked eggs from oozing.)
Bring to a boil, then remove
Let set in covered pan for 15
Drain and shake pan around.
The eggs will crack and peel easi-
Then cool them down with
hot water and they are ready to
be eaten. (If dyeing the eggs. do
not crack, of course.)
What do marbles have to do
with the Easter season?
Well, the English custom of
playing marbles on Good Friday
is an ancient one.
Boys always played marbles
on their way to and from church
Hot cross buns
They were baked on Good Fri-
day and only some were eaten.
The rest were hung in houses
until the following year.
Did the buns get black and
dusty? You bet. But it was be-
lieved that they also brought good
luck, good health and prosperity
to the people.
Silly and Willy were bicycling.
Willy: "Let's go for an early
swim on Easter morning."
Silly: "Okay, there's a lake on
the next block."
Willy: "How deep is it?"
Silly: "Not very, a duck was
swimming in it last week, and the

Dr. Bob King titillated the Ki-

reading of news excerpts from the
52 volume of The Star, in which
several interesting items of histo-
ry were found.
For instance, in 1952 there
were five new car dealerships in
Port St. Joe, a men's store, three
drug stores and' several depart-
ment stores, as well as a theatre
and drive-in movies.
King said that the newspaper
showed that club steak in that
year was selling for 50t a pound,
a new automobile could be had
for $2,200 and men's Manhattan
dress shirts sold for $2.95..
That was a long time ago..

To Enjoy Seafood,
Prepare with Care
Seafood should be kept iced
or in the coolest part of the refrig-
erator and cooked within two
days for best quality. Cross con-
tamination causes thousands of
cases of foodborne illness every
year, but is easily prevented with
a few precautions. When prepar-
ing seafood, for example, don't
,place raw shellfish in a colander,
cook it and then drain it in the
same unwashed colander. This
allows bacteria from the raw
product to contaminate the
cooked product To be safe, never

P Poor Eating Habits,
4| Little Exerrise
l inkedto Obesity
SElizabeth C. Jones, M.D.
There is no question that Americans are the fattest people on
,our planet. This fatness comes about because of poor eating habits
and not enough exercise.
Children should eat a nutritious breakfast, dinner and supper.
They do not need to eat between meals unless they are extremely
thin, and when they do eat between meals it should be something
healthy fruit, nuts, raw vegetables. Potato chips, cheese whiz, fri-
toes, sugar cereal, pastries should be avoided like the plague.
Sometimes I think regular meals are. as important as what the
children eat. They should sit down peacefully and eat leisurely.
Children should be required to chew their food slowly and carefully.
Many digestive complaints are solved by a quire peaceful mealtime
and slow careful chewing.
Mealtime should be a time of family sharing, and should not be
reserved as the time to correct each person's shortcomings.
The person in charge of cooking for the family should make an
effort to decrease fats in the diet. Care and, planning of meals
should be practiced. It is not good to throw a meal together and
feed the family without giving thought to the problem. Meals that
are not planned usually are not nutritious. You tend to use more
high fat, high sugar items than when there is careful planning.
The families that can manage to have a garden should do so.
The children need to help plant, cultivate, and harvest. You always
appreciate something more when you have a part in its creation.
If you have planned carefully, and the family has enjoyed a nu-
tritious tasty meal, the next order of business is to get everyone off
the couch from in front of the TV and outside. We are blessed in
this area with a climate that encourages outside activities all year.
Early morning walks are a delight, but if the schedule is such you
can not walk in the morning, get everyone moving in the evening.

A new maritime era will begin
on April 19th when the Coast
Guard starts charging fees for is-
suing licenses and' certificates to
U.S. mariners. A Final Rule print-

charter boat captains to deep sea
Under the new regulations,
the total fee for an original lower

levels include six-pack (charter

master and mate licenses. Upper
level licenses will cost $272. Even
a person who wants to work as

The Coast Guard will collect
the fees in phases, and will not
'refund a fee after that particular
phase has commenced. For exam-
ple, a six-pack or 100-ton master
candidate must pay $65 for eval-
uation of his application paper-
work, along with $17 for an FBI
check. If he completes that phase
successfully, he then will pay $80
for the exam. If he passes, he will
cough up another $35 to receive
his license. If he fails to pass the
exam during the first cycle, he
has two choices ante up anoth-

avoid the fees for administrative

have started the testing process
by the 19th (even If they fail) will
not have to pay the exam fee."

At the Discovery Center, the
students were able to touch the
snakes and alligator. They went
through a hollow tree to see
where a raccoon, owl, and duck
lived. Inside they were able to see
how termites and beetles live in
the wood. They also saw a display
of animal skulls. In one section,
they could try on old fashioned
clothes and saw a wreath made of
human hair. There was an old
bike with, a large wheel and a

piece of brain coral. They also lis-

We all have to eat and most
S6f us enjoy eating vegetables.
But, ,to produce abundantly, veg-
etable crops have to eat too. We
have to feed them fertilizer, that
is. However, fertilizers can be
confusing. What do the numbers
on the tag mean? How much of
what kind should we use? When
.and how should the fertilizer be
applied? These are some of the
'questions I'll try to answer in this
i Florida's sandy soils are noto-
riously infertile. This is a major
problem for commercial farmers
and backyard gardeners alike.
You can improve the fertility of
your garden soil with animal ma-
nUres and other kinds of organic,
matter. In most situations, you
also need to add a commercial
Plants need a variety of nutri-
ents. But, the major elements you
must apply are nitrogen, phos-
phorus, and potassium. These
chemicals' are always listed in
that order on the fertilizer tag.
The tag also shows the quantity
of each major element in the mix.
For example, a 100 pound bag of
8-8-8 fertilizer contains eight
pounds of nitrogen compound,
eight pounds of phosphorus, in
the form of phosphoric acid, and
eight pounds of a potassium com-
The type and amount of ferti-
lizer you need will depend largely
on the kind of soil in your garden.
Your objective is to add only
.those nutrients that your soil
doesn't already contain in ade-
quate amounts. You should re-
member that too much fertilizer
can be as bad as too little. If you
apply too little, your garden will
be unproductive. But, if you add
too much, you'll waste money,,
'and you mnay even injure your
In general, an 8-8-8 or 10-10-
10, analysis fertilizer is best for
sandy soils. For muck and peat
soils, which are already high in
nitrogen, a 0-12-20 analysis is
recommended. For sandy soils,
and other soils with a low nitro-
gen. content, you'll need'from two
to .five pounds of a common bal-
anced analysis fertilizer for every
100 square feet of garden. On or-
ganic soils, you'll need one to two
pounds per 100 square feet. If the
soil in your garden isn't typical of
either of these common types,
you should have your soil ana-
lyzed to determine the best kind
of fertilizer for your particular
You should divide the
amount of fertilizer called for into
three or four applications. The
first application should be ap-
plied in shallow furrows on both
sides of the seed rows at planting
time. This procedure is called
banding. The furrows should be
about six inches apart, and only
two or three inches deep. Spread
the fertilizer evenly in 'the fur-
rows, and then fill them with soil.
About three weeks after the crop
comes up, side dress with I
pound' of 10-10-10 fertilizer per
100 linear feet of row space. Side
dressing is done by placing the
fertilizer in a small band three to
four inches on either side of the
row of plants. This- process .
should be repeated three weeks
after the first side dressing.
