School Board Offices Moving
Shuffling Headquarters from Courthouse to High School Complex
I -.. '-
School Board maintenance workers Greg Layfield and
Les Gortman place furniture in the new Board meeting
Thanksgiving may be a holiday for
most of the residents of Port St. Joe, but
for the offices of the Gulf County School
District, it will be moving day.
The District offices were "evicted"
from their space in the Gulf County
Courthouse the first of the, yeai by the
Gulf County Commission, who gave them
a gentle boot, in a move to gain space for
other county offices. The Board has been
occupying cramped quarters in the.
Courthouse and anywhere else 'in town
they could find a little office space. for.
nearly 20 years. About the middle of next
week, all offices of thesystem will be un-
der one roof.
Superintendent of Schools Walter
Wilder said, 'The County did us a big fa-
vor by boosting out of our offices in the
Courthouse. It will be the first time since
I have been Superintendent that I will
have an office with a window in it."
STARTED MOVE YESTERDAY
The Board started moving desks,
chairs and equipment yesterday
[Wednesday] into newly provided quar-
ters in the former vocation class building
directly behind the Port St. Joe High
School. The space has been renovated by
school maintenance personnel during the
year, at a cost of $90,000, providing
some 6,000 square feet of space for the
District brain center.
"We'll have twice the space we had in
the Courthouse, which will allow us to
bring in the people now occupying the
former Ward Ridge City Hall building and
make it easier to do our work," Wilder
"Our people have done a superb job
in renovating these old auto repair,
shops, carpenter shops and buildings
.constructed and designed for vocational
training into comfortable and beautiful
offices for our district." Wilder said. "Also,
it will be the first time since I have been
Superintendent we will have a board
meeting room in which more than a half
dozen people can attend, comfortably,
the business meetings of the District."
ADEQUATE SPACE AVAILABLE
The new offices feature a large meet-
ing room, private offices, to be used by
state auditors at their request, adequate
office and work space for the entire staff.
Most of the offices are in areas of semi-
privacy, with walls about six feet high di-
viding the different work spaces, provid-
ing an open atmosphere with a degree of
privacyto each officer.
Wilder said the move should be com-
pleted by the middle of next week. "Hope-
fully by Wednesday of next week, we will
be totally located in our, new quarters
and ready to meet the public."
In the meantime the move goes on.
Computer wiring is in place ready to re-
ceive the terminals' cabinets which will
be installed Friday; carpet was being fin-
ished Tuesday and the finishing touches
put on the outside of the building.
Plans for Christmas Festival, Parade Students Are Given
Day of Celebration
Final plads have been pre- in
pared for the ;staging of Port St. ic
Joe's first day of Christmas festi- Cl
val and parade activities, sched- sp
uled for Saturday, December 4.. chl
Port St. Joe initiated' the an- to
nual Christmas Parade nearly 40
years ago in the Panhandle of
Florida, which has since become
the normal pre-holiday activity
for most cities and towns in north
Florida. The Festival day com-
bined and highlighted by. the
Christmas Parade is now a "first"
fori the Panhandle.
The special day of ushering in
the holiday season is anticipated
by the Merchants Association and
the Chamber of Commerce to be
well accepted by residents of the
City and surrounding communi-
ties and they plan to make it an
annual event at Christmas-time.
Final plans were 'laid last
week end, with festival chairper-
,son, Tonya Nixon reporting the
special day, geared at welcoming
Santa Claus to the County, will
also be filled with special events

Walkway on Niles Road
to Avoid Traffic Danger
The city of Port St. Joe; completed work this week on a pedes-
trian crossing over Chicken House Branch near the Port St. Joe
High School, allowing pedestrian students a safe route to the
school grounds without being forced to walk in the heavily-
City. Commissioner Johnny Linton suggested recently that
the City construct a crossing of some sort where Niles Road
crosses the creek making it safer for students walking to and
from school in the Garrison Avenue/Ward Ridge/Pine Ridge vi-
Linton was disturbed by the- potential danger to children --
walking west on Niles Road and faced with the limited walk
space at the crossing.
The City fathers have been concerned about the danger of
the crossing for some time, but were taking the avenue of trying
to secure an easement from one or two Ward Ridge residents in
the curve of Barbara Avenue, to provide a crossing to the school
grounds before reaching Niles Road. This solution would only
provide a solution to the problem for Ward Ridge children.
A month ago, Linton again brought the subject,up suggest-
ing the City try to secure right-of-way from Gulf County along-
side Niles Road and build a foot bridge across the branch to take
pedestrian traffic off the street. The County subsequently offered
the right-of-way to the' City. The Commission Instructed public
works superintendent Frank Healy to look into the problem and
try to come up with a solution which would provide the needed
relief with a minimum of problems. The City envisioned the ne-
cessity of securing state permits to cross the branch with a foot
bridge, which they had no inclination to get Involved with.
Healy came up with the solution shown at left, with includes
three 48-inch drain pipes under a fill provided for a walkway'
from the shoulder of Niles Road onto school property.
The City and the County have under discussion a joint pro-
ject to construct a sidewalk along the route also. Sidewalks were
constructed approaching the High School complex from the west
side a few years ago, to fill a need of pedestrians approaching
from Oak Grove and south Port St. Joe. The sidewalk approach-
ing the school from the east would correct a possible hazard
from both approaches.
New Mullet FishngRules Take
Effect, Limit Catch and Time
A ruling by the Florida Marine Fisheries which
became law last Friday, will mean a lean Christmas
for commercial fishermen in Gulf County and a
shortage of the marine delicacy, roe mullet, during
this present season. According to fishermen in the
Port St. Joe area, the roe mullet began their run in
October, which will continue through December.
, Rules by the FMC, which went into effect Friday,
November 19, state mullet fishermen must stop their
fishing activities at noon Friday and may not resume
until Monday at noon. This effectively reduces the
fishing time a third and may prevent catching roe
mullet completely due to the fact the fish run may be
during the closed hours.
The law is meant to protect the species by limit-
ing the catch until the mullet can spawn.
The mullet "run" in the fall to their spawning
grounds, laying their eggs and returning to their nat-
RULE NOT NEEDED HERE
Gene Raffield, local commercial fisherman, says
the law may be needed some places in Florida, but it
is not needed Ihere. Raffield says, "We have been
keeping records of our mullet catches for 40 years
and it hasn't varied by 10% over this length of time.
We have always produced from 900,000 to a million
pounds of mullet during the roe season, year in and
year out. The volume hasn't changed any."
The FMC claims their rules will allow some of the
mullet to escape to lay their eggs, thus rebuilding
the species, which they claim is in decline.
In addition to the limited time to fish each week,
the new rules will limit catches per boat to 1,000
pounds after the roe season is over. "Again, the law
effectively puts us out of the millet business because
we're geared up to catch thousands of pounds a trip.
A .catch of 50,000 pounds is not unusual. If we're
limited to 1,000 pounds a boat, we can't even pay to
operate that boat on 1,000 pounds of production,"
PREDICT A SMALL CATCH
'"I predict we will net a total of 150,000 pounds of
mullet this year, under the new regulations. This is
the most expensive fish we catch and .when we re-
duce our harvest from 1 million down to 150,000
pounds it effects us drastically," according to Raf-
Other fishermen are in the same situation as
Raffield. "Only the mom and pop operations can sur-
vive under the new rules," the fisherman said. "With
a limit of 500 pounds per fisherman and 1,000 per
boat the small boat operators can survive, but not
the larger fishermnnen."
"Waters around here ate unique," Raffield said.
"While waters in other parts of the Gulf of Mexico are
deteriorating, they are actually improving here in
Gulf County, and have been for several years. We
have an abundance of fish here, but we must abide
by the same rules as everyone else." Improvements
in contributors to waters in St. Joseph Bay have
drastically improved them over the past years.

Years Of Plenty
Let Us Be
For a Land of Plenty
As we observe Thanksgivirig in our nation today, we all
should pause to. express our thanks to God for all the
many blessings we have experienced as Americans during
the past year. In spite of'the bumpy times, the unfortunate
experiences we have all been involved with, it has been a
There. are some signs that our national economy is ill
but with definite trends of recovering after a bout with the
doldrums. The pessimistic say recession is present. Others
claim it is merely a transition period. We're still trying to
get accustomed to a new President and his ideas, wonder-
ing what the future will bring. but confident in the assu-
rance.we will survive. Still, even those of our citizens who
are inundated with problems are the envy of the largest
percentage of the population of the world.
The United States is STILL a nation others are trying to
become part of; breaching our borders, if you will.
We find it kind of hard to commiserate with people who
are worried about a few inconveniences when there are so
many people in the world who would give their right arm to
be fortunate eriough to have the type problems we have.
Many are dying everyday-trying to get to this land of milk
and honey-on inner tubes. in overcrowded boats or any
way they can. If we are sulTering nearly as bad as some
doom savers claim, we're the only ones who know it.
We could live in a country where medical care is a nee-
dle jabbed in our neck, or arm; where a home is a few
sheets of tin. or cardboard, held up by a couple of poles;
where sanitation or proper waste disposal is a pause in the
.woods, or an open ditch running down the middle of the
dirt path in front of the hovel where you are forced to exist.
We may complain over having to pay $4.00 or $5.00 for
-a piece of steak to eat or 89t a pound for a turkey to
grace our Thanksgiving table. Here in America there will be
.no standing in line at a super market for an hour or so to
buy that steak or that turkey, only to have the clerk an-
;nouince. "Sorry, we're sold out 'til next week."
There is plenty to be thankful for this year. One of the
things we can be most thankful about is that we live in a
nation which still pauses one full day each year to give God
thanks for what He has blessed us with. Considering our
drift toward removing God from our public lives, the
growth of crime in our streets .. pausing to give thanks to
Him means there still might be hope for us. W\e can cer-
tainly be thankful for that!
We complain about our growing medical expense, high-
er prices, ecological danger, disappearing acreage, water
shortages, floods, fires. earthquakes. crop failures, lack of
crop supports, etc.. and etc. If there is nothing to complain
about, we'll invent something! But. it only takes a holiday
observance such as Thanksgiving to bring us back to the
reality ofjust how much we are truly blessed!

Certain Foods Ready for Harvest Right At Holiday Time

and grains ripen at a particular
time of the year; rain falls in more
abundance just when it will do
the ground and its production the
most good. be the most effec-
Fruits ripen in the fall and
tender vegetables ripen in the
spring and early summer. Grains'
come along at the hottest and dri-

may be harvested without inter-

Tomatoes come along during
June and July to alleviate the
misery of the hot summer months
with a delicate, delectable taste.
Berries are a harbinger of spring
and nuts come along in the fall.
Pumpkins ripen just in time for
Hallowe'en jack-o-lanterns and
Thanksgiving pumpkin pies.
Things have a way of working out
by the season.
By Wesley Ramsey
Thanksgiving needs crisp,
cool temperatures to put a fellow-
in the mood for feeling good and
giving thanks. Christinas needs
snow and ice. July Fourth needs
a good, hot day to drink lemo-
nade, and Easter just cries out
for the presence of a Ibrihti spring
day with all the flowers beginning
to put on their colorful show.

Albert Bass and I are the same age, were born and raised in the
same "neck-of-the-woods", attended the first through the twelfth
grades, together, and graduated from Tate High school the same
year. As far as I can remember, I haven't laid an eye on Albert since
that night we graduated 36 years ago.
T' hat is, until last Monday afternoon.
I was in our store in Panama City looking out the window when
I saw the truck pull into the parking lot. It was an older model
Chevrolet with a camper shell on the back. Somehow I knew the
man was coming to our store.
"Good afternoon. May I help you, sir?" I said. 'You sure can," he
replied, "if you know Albert Bass."
For a moment I stood frozen in time. Suddenly, it all came
rushing back from the recesses of my mind. It had been over 36
years since Albert Bass and I had seen each other. I was suddenly
so glad to see him I almost hugged his neck, but I didn't. Thirty-six
years is a long time, and I didn't know what Albert might think
about me hugging him. After all, people can change in that length
Albert and I, were close friends, especially in elementary and
,junior high .school. Albert, my'first cousins, Denver Bodie and Mar-
vin Cartwright, and I were happy campers in those formative years.
Albert and Denver are the ones who taught me to smoke and cuss.
Oh, I had heard plenty of cuss words before, but they taught me to
use them properly. Well, improperly, I guess. These lessons and
more were learned when we "camped out" from time to time.
Albert Bass and I are cut from the same piece of cloth. We were
both raised,in: Ferry Pass; he just off Nine-Mile Road and I a little
further ,southon Olive road. Albert lived a little deeper in the coun-
try than I, but not that :much further. We both went barefoot during
the summer and new shoes always hurt our feet.
I always had the feeling that Albert was somewhat "better off'
than I. Albert's folks bought him a 12-gauge shotgun when he was
in junior high. 1,-on the other hand,' had a 22 rifle that I bought
from my first cousin, Eutaw (Denver's brother), for $4.50. It was a
single-shot, bolt action, and had the aiming device missing off the
end of the barrel. Denver owned a 410 shotgun and that put me on
the bottom of the totem pole, gun-wise.
Albert, Denver, and I camped out a lot during those years. Our
favorite place to camp was a swimming hole called Sandy-Landy.
Sandy-Landy was located about a mile upstream from Booker's
Fish Camp, where we often rented a boat and sculledd" it upstream
to the camp site. Sometimes Denver, being the oldest,' would buy a
pack of cigarettes from Mr. Booker while Albert and I waited in the
boat. Mr. Booker didn't know Denver's dad.
One day, while camping at Sandy-Landy, Albert, Denver, Mar-
vin, and I were. scouting upstream and discovered a moonshine
still. Actually, it was three 5-gallon drums of mash, and it was in
the process of "working off'. We hid our guns in the brush and went
to a nearby government work-station to report our find. It was our
intent to call the sheriff. The head of the establishment dissuaded
us from placing the call, saying we could "get in a lot of trouble get-
ting involved in such a thing." It didn't take us country boys long to
realize that we were standing in front of the "moonshiner". ,
We hesitated for just a moment and then told him he was right;
we were just going to leave it alone.
As soon as we left, we retrieved our guns, returned to the
moonshine, and shot all three barrels full of holes. Then, we turned
all three over and let the moonshine flow into the creek. Wejeft a
note admonishing them not to make any more moonshine and
'signed it, "Dick Tracy".
Then, we ran like well, we ran fast and farl

Sharks Defeat Pensacola Catholic,
31-3, In Quincy Rotary Bowl Sat.
The Port St. Joe Sharks end-
ed their season on a winning note
as they defeated the Pensacola
Catholic Crusaders Saturday af-
ternoon in Quincy's Rotary Bowl.
It was the second appearance
in the Bowl for the Sharks, the
first being in 1988, when they
dropped a 14-0 decision to Rick-
ards of Tallahassee. Saturday,
the Sharks avenged two losses in
blasting the, Crusaders. They
brought home a 31-3 win for a
Bowl victory and defeated the
Crusaders who knocked the
Sharks out of the play-offs in post
season play last year.
The Sharks scored three
times in the second quarter and
twice in the fourth. The Crusad-
ers kicked a 30-yard field goal in
the second period for their only
points of the game.
The game was played in per-
fect football weather, which was
unusual for the Sharks who have
had their share of stormy weather
games this season.
The two teams felt each other
out in the first period, with Pen-
sacola taking the kick-off and
moving down the field to the
Shark 28. But Eric Monteiro
stopped Marcus Bullock on a
fourth and three play and the
Crusaders missed their best
chance at a touchdown.
As the second quarter
opened, the Sharks had the ball
on Catholic's 34 yard line with
second down. Two plays later, Ni-
namdi Frazier powered up the
middle for 34 yards and the
Sharks' first score of the after-
noon. The two-point conversion
Two minutes later the Sharks
were knocking at the Crusaders'
door again after Josh Colbert re-
turned a Crusader punt 40 yards
to the 12 yard line. Six plays and
a face mask penalty later, Bryan
Butts sneaked over from the one
on a keeper play.
Another two minutes later,
Ninamdi Frazier took a pitch-out
on the nine yard line and. went in
The Crusaders kicked a 30
yard field goal with two: seconds
remaining in the first half to
make the score 18-3 at half time.
The third quarter was almost
a re-play of the first with both
teams sparring for position and,
the Crusaders maintaining pos-
session with their "four yards and
:a cloud of dust" offensive plan,
but the Shark defense kept then
away from the goal line. Zyris Hill
stopped one Crusader drive with
:an intercepted pass at the Shark
With two minutes gone in the
fourth quarter, Randy Smith bat-
tered the Crusader line' for a two
yard scoring plunge, to make the
With the Sharks experiment-
ing at the end of the game Barry
Adkison was at quarterback and
lofted a scoring strike to Cameron
Likely from the 39 yard line to
make the final score 31-3.
Ninamdi Frazier was named
the Sharks most valuable player
on offense for the game. Jeremy
Tull received the designation as
most valuable on defense.
Pensacola's most valuable
were Marcus Bullock on offense
and Chad Post, defense.
Josh Bateman (60), Jeremy Tull (77), and Eric Ramsey (50)
open a hole through the line for Ninamdi Frazier, who had an
outstanding game for the Sharks. Frazier and Tull were named the,
Offensive and Defensive players of the game for the Sharks.

A Stump Can be A Pain In the Back to Remove
But There Is.
A Choice of
Removing a tree stump can
be time consuming, costly, or
back breaking. Take your pick.
There are three recommended
ways of tree stump removal. De-
pending on which method you
choose, you pay the price in time,
money, or muscle.
Tree stumps, which can be a
real problem in the home land-
scape, can be removed in three
basic ways. I'll describe each, and
you can decide which best suits
your needs. My information on
tree stump removal was provided
by Dr. Robert Black Extension
Urban Horticulturist with IFAS
of the University of Florida.
If you have time to spare, rot-
ting is probably the cheapest and
easiest method of removing
stumps. Rotting or decaying is a
process by which fungi break
down the wood. Since fungi
doesn't have chlorophyll and
: Extension Notes

Gulf County Extension Service
can't make food the way green
plants do, they obtain their nour-
ishment from other sources, such
as wood stumps. Decaying a
stump will take a long time. But,
the process can be hastened by
keeping the fungi warm and
moist. During periods of little
rainfall, keep a stump damp by
watering it frequently.
Decaying also can be acceler-
ated by drilling large holes, at
least an inch in diameter, into the
stump. These holes expose more
wood surface to the decaying fun-
gi. Adding a little fertilizer also
will speed decay. However, be
careful not to add a lot of fertiliz-
er, because too much will burn
the decay causing fungi. About
two cups sprinkled over the
stump should be adequate.
If you don't have the time to
spare, the quickest way to remove
a stump is to cut it out of the
ground. But, we recommend this
method only if you have a strong
back and are willing to spend
many hours of hard work. If this
process sounds right for you, dig
a trench around the .stump,
about two feet wide and two feet
deep. Depending upon size, you
may need some mechanical pow-
er, such as a car or tractor to get
the severed stump out of the

the first two methods, you may
want to call a professional tree re-
moval service. They have equip-
ment which removes stumps by
grinding them into small chips. It
usually only takes a few minutes,
but it can be expensive.
If none of the procedures
we've described appeals to you,
don't resort to some of the other,,
unacceptable methods of stump
removal you may have heard
about. For instance, you may
have run across advertisement
for chemicals which are claimed
to be effective in. destroying
sturmps. May of these .'products
have been tested, and have been
found to be ineffective. There are
Sno magic chemicals on the mar-
ket which will dissolve stumps in
a few days.
Also, burning was a method
once used to remove stumps.
However, this can- be dangerous.
And, many communities have or-
dinances against burning. In
such cases, the procedures we've
discussed should be used.
Finally, if you're really
"stumped" about what to do with
an unsightly stump, just leave it
there. You can always find ways
to use it in your landscape. For
example, a tree stump can be
made into a interesting container
for annuals. Or, you might place
potted plants -on the stump to
help it blend, in with the rest of
your home grounds.

Parents Make the Difference
"Sticks and stones may break
my bones, but words can never
hurt me." says the children's
rhyme. Unfortunately, where self-
esteem is concerned, the rhyme
simply isn't true. The words you
use as a parent can build your
child's self-esteem or destroy
IL Here are some expressions
that can build self-esteem:
-* Knowing you. I'm sure you
will do fine;
You can do it, if you try;
,* I have faith in you:
You're trying yotir hardest,
and your work will pay off;.
*, I can see you put a lot of
effort Into that;
** That was a good try. Don't
worry about the mistake.

December 4, at 7:30, the Gulf Coast Commodores will host Jef-
ferson Davis Junior College at the WHS gym. This is part of GCCC's
attempt to spread the word to surrounding areas that they are inc
terested in these towns and schools, and hopefully, local students
will take a greater interest in GCCC. Tickets at the gate are $3 for
adults, $2 for students.
Well, the Thanksgiving bird has already taken a beating: and.
after a brief break, students will hit the home stretch for the first
semester. Hopefully, the number of interruptions will be reduced
and grades will be increased.
Thanks to the many students that donated cash & groceries to
help others less fortunate enjoy a thanksgiving meal. It is good to
know that the students do care when you call on them to help.
Basketball games are coming fast and furiously-too many to
list. Try to find a schedule and attend when you can. The,players
need your support (both boys and girls).
ROTC has an annual trip to Pensacola Naval Air Station sched-
uled for December 1-2-3 to familiarize cadets with base life. A trip
to the Air Museum is worth the drive itself, but cadets will get to
tour many other sections of the base as well.
It seems odd to be thinking about Christmas holidays, but
when we return from Thanksgiving, it's only 3 1/2 weeks to the end
of the semester and the start of Christmas holidays (Dec. 23-Jan.
10). Teachers return Jan. 7 for a work day.

A. Natural gas is a mixture of hydrocarbons
composed mainly of methane and exhibits
the following characteristics:
1. Odorless an odor is added to this gas.
2. It is lighter than air and if released will
rise into the atmosphere unless trapped.
3. It is nontoxic. However, as with any burn-
ing process, incomplete combustion will
form carbon monoxide which is toxic.
4. It is colorless.
5. It has a flammability range of from 4% to,
14% (approximate values by volume of
gas to air).
Q. Is Natural Gas Dangerous?
A. Gas, like all forms of energy, is capable of
doing damage and must be used properly.
However, the experience with natural gas
use shows it to be more safe than other en-
ergy sources which you use in your home or
Q. What Should You Know About Gas

can be heard similar to air leaking. '
3. A flame at or around appliance piping
other than at the burner indicates leak-
Q. The Fact That A "Rotten-Egg"
Odor Is Detected, Does Than Mean
That There Is A Natural Gas Leak?
A. No. But this should be checked to assure
that the odor isn't an indication of a gas leak.
Call your gas company and report it. Odors
similar to that of natural gas may come from
1. A sewer system.
2. A water aeration plant which has a sul-
3. Swamps or bogs.
4. Areas where the land has been filled, etc.
Q. If There Is A Gas Leak, Will You
Always Smell An Odor?'
A. No. If gas leaks from an above ground pipe,
there should always be an odor. However,
such as a leak from an underground service
line or main, the ground acts as a filter and
can remove the odor from the gas.
Q. Why Isn't A Gas Odor Smelled
Other things which should be done to im-
prove safety as well as conserve energy are:
1. Teach children that they are not to play
with any appliances in the home.
2. Clean the burners and have them
checked for proper adjustment periodical-
3. Repairs, installations and removal of ap-
pliances are 'jobs for qualified persons.
Use only qualified people to do this work.
4. If lighting of an appliance is required, AL-
WAYS light match and hold at ignition
point of burner before you turn on the
5. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for
operation and care of gas appliances.
6. Never take a chance. If you think you
smell gas, call you gas company.
Q. What Should be Done When One
Believes He Smells Gas?
A. There are many possible conditions which
could be encountered, thus it isn't possible
to give specific instructions for every situa-
tion: The following examples provide general
instructions which should assist:
1. If a slight odor is detected in a localized
area or room of a building do not use a
match or other flame in the area; call the
