Body Found In Woods

Hasn't Been Identified


The body of a young white
male found dead lying in a ditch
last Friday afternoon, still re-
mains unidentified according to
Gulf County Interim Sheriff
James Coats. The body of the
young man, approximately 25 to
40 years of age, was found lying,
face down in a ditch on Kate
Glass Road, north of Wewahitch-
ka, by hunters about 3:30 p.m.
There were no signs of foul
$lay around the body nor has any
been detected on the body by the
Coroner's Office in Tallahassee
according to Sheriff Coats. "We
still don't know how the man
died,' whether by natural causes
or other causes," said Coats. "It
will probably be: later on in the
week before we get a report on
'the cause of death." -
The site and the body were
investigated by the Florida De-
partment of Law, Enforcement
Mobile Crime Lab after the body


was found. Coats guessed that
the man had been dead approxi-
mately two days and had either
fallen or been dumped, into the
ditch along the lonely road where
he was located.
Sheriff Coats asked for help
in identifying the young man and
ascertaining where he came from.
When found, the victim was wear-
ing a purple, nylon jacket with a
olive green military type sweater
underneath. He had on leather
and canvas military type combat
boots. He also wore a gold chain.
The name "John" was printed on
the breast of the Jacket and
"King's Cellar Le Oringer" was
printed across the back.
Anyone recognizing this de-
scription and can be of help in
Identifying the young man is
urged to call the Gulf County
Sheriffs Department immediate-
ly.

To Enforce Property Numbers


Proposed Ordinance Will Aid 911 Emergency,


The Gulf County Commission
decided Tuesday evening at their
regularly scheduled meeting to
put into motion the establish-
ment of a uniform property num-
bering ordinance. According to
Gulf County's Administrative As-
sistant Larry Wells the ordinance
would assign, numbers to all
buildings in Gulf County, require
posting of those numbers.' and es-
tablish penalties for' non-
compliance. Wells said the intent
of the ordinance is to aid emer-
gency personnel in locating build- ,
ings promptly and accurately as
they respond to incoming emer-
gency calls on the county's re-
cently installed E-91 I system.
The ordinance calls for the lo-
cation numbers to be affixed in a
clearly visible and legible form to
the front of the building, or a sep-
arate structure such as a mail-
.box, post, wall, or fence. It also
calls for the numbers to be a min-
imum of four inches in height
'and of a contrasting color with
the immediate background of the
building of structure they are af-
fixed to.
Those falling to comply with
the ordinance will be notified of
their non-compliance and will be
given 30 days to conform to the
ordinance. Failure to comply ,will
be a misdemeanor penalty pun-
ishable by up to a $500 fin and/
or up to 60 days in the Gulf
County Jail.
IThe Board also discussed
prank calls being received' on the
911 system making false reports.
noting that state law says that
anyone making such calls com-
mits a first degree misdemeanor.
Commission Chairman Michael
Hammond suggested the Board
consider establishing a civil pen-"
alty in the form, of a fine for fper-
sons convicted of mnaklh false
9911 reports. The Board Instruct-
ed their attorney. Barbara Sand-
ers. to look in to such penalties
and make some recommenda-
tions to the board at the next
meeting.
Deferred Compensation
Program
The Board adopted a resolu-
tion putting the wheels into mo-
tion to establish a deferred com-
pensation program for county
employees. Lou Morenq, repre-
senting the National Association
of Counties (NACo), presented the
program to the Board stating that

An Early Morning Fire


Destroys Adkison Home


: *` '" ''.


A spark from the fireplace
quickly engulfed the home of
Mr. and Mrs. Martin Adkison of
21.04 Juniper Avenue in flames.
Mrs. Adkison was taking down
Christmas decorations and stor-
Ing them in the attic, taking ad-
vantage of time alone while her
husband and three sons were in
Tallahassee attending a Florida
State basketball game.
While she was in the attic a
spark ignited the decorations
stacked in front of the fireplace.
Mrs. Adklson stated she was
only gone for three or four min-
utes, and attempted to extin-
guish the blaze with an afghan.
but it only spread.
She was unable to reach the
phone for the flames and ran
next door and awakened a
neighbor, John Wright. Mrs.
Wright called 911 while her hus-
band and Mrs. Adkison re-
turned to the burning home.
The home was engulfed in
smoke and flames but the two
entered the home, managing to
save a file box of Important pa-
pers and some photographs.
The open area of the two
story home acted as a chimney
causing the fire to rise rapidly.
Thc front windows blew out of
the: home and the intake of air
caused the fire to act like a steel
furnace according to Ralph Wal-
t. on', Mrs. Adkison's father.
.The .fire marshal. John
Hatcher, was on the scene last
Thursday morning and affirmed
that a spark from the fireplace
had been the cause of the fire.
The home was gutted on the
Inside as a result of the
blaze.Four pumpers from the
Port St. Joe Fire Department the
St. Joe Beach Department and
the Highland View Department
battled the blaze and did "an ex-
cellent job according to the state
fire marshal.
Martin Adkison and the
boys arri,'ed home frbm the
game just as the fire department
was extinguishing the blaze.


Snowy Owl Enjoys Southern Exposure


A snowy owl abandoned a
normal winter home near Canada
and landed in Port. St. Joe last.
Thursday taking Up a temporary

'u '~it th raiiIInIIIIIL il


residence at the Waste Water
Treatment Plant. The large, hand-
some bird, mostly white with
black markings, was recognized'


as being foreign to this part of the
country and steps have been tak-
en to capture the owl since it
seems to be disabled.


Snowy owl's expression seemed to ask, "Who, figure out where she came from and how she got
me?" when authorities and wildlife lovers tried to here.


The owl seemed to be unable
to fly although there were no ap-
parent broken bones or injuries
immediately visible. The bird ap-
peared not to .be frightened but
maintained a regal, unruffled ap-
pearance despite all the attention
it was attracting.
A Gulf County Animal Con-
trol officer captured the bird and
turned it over to local rehabilita-
tors for handling. The owl was
said to be a native of Canada and
the Arctic North, coming south as
far as north Alabama and Georgia
during the winter months. It was
the first time one has been sited
this far south and especially in
Port St. Joe. It is larger than Flor-
ida's biggest owl, the great
horned owl.
The bird was taken to Betsy
Knight of the Big Bend Wildlife
Sanctuary in Blountstown. Ms.
Knight verified that the bird was
indeed .rare in this part of the
United States. The bird's arrival
caused quite a stir at Ms.
Knight's sanctuary and with the
Florida Game and Fresh Water
Fish Commission which is moni-
toring the bird's care. Ms. Knight
said, '"We'll probably let nature
take its course and release it here
and let nature and instinct guide
it back to where it came from."
Game department personnel
also speculate the owl had been a
pet of someone's that was turned
loose or escaped. Having a wild
bird or animal as a pet is Illegal
in Florida.
The bird appears to have cer-
tain characteristics of a semi-
trained animal, such as coming
to a glove perch on a handler's
hand. This and other actions by
the owl have aroused the suppo-
sition that it could possibly be an
illegal pet of someone's.

Slipping Away

IT'S IRONIC THAT we should editorialize about the lack of
attention to preservingiour historic buildings here in Port St. Joe
and Gulf County last week and have an incident happen to high-
light our point more emphatically than a couple of columns of
words could ever do.
We had written the editorial Monday, a holiday, then we
learned the next day about the purchase of the old Overstreet
store building and plans for moving it from Gulf County. Those
plans emphasized our idea' in a manner which we could never
verbalize.
OLD BUILDINGS ARE few and far between in Gulf County.
There are less than a handful of them in Port St. Joe which date
earlier than 1910-a mighty small handful.
It Is our understanding that one of the dwelling houses, built
a couple of years later than 1910 is on the sale block at present.
The old house has been one of the show places in Port St. Joe
for many years. When it was first built;, it was one of the largest
and nicer homes in the city.
But time has passed by. The family which, lived in the home
for a generation had all its immediate members die or grow up,
get married and establish homes of their own. The home now
stands vacant and deteriorating. The heirs plan to tear it down if
someone doesn't come along with a different plan or offer to buy
it. There is irony here, too, because the family which lived in the
house were members of the Historical Society and members of
one of the oldest families living in Port St. Joe. There's a lot of
history in that old house.
SHOULD THIS OLD house be torn down, it will mean one
more link to the past is gone forever. We. don't have enough of
our past still remaining, no matter how recent it is, to be allow-
ing any of it to be destroyed. We've allowed much of the past to
be destroyed, already. There was the old brick school building
on Long Avenue-a real tie to the past---in order to construct a
nursing home in its place; the old "Stone" house, which made
way for a fast food outlet; the old "Roberts" house which was
turned into a parking lot; the old wooden depot building ....
Their demise, and the destruction of others leaves precious few
buildings with a link to'our past.
Maybe some group, or some committee, should make a study
of our historically valuable buildings and determine which ones
we shall keep and which ones are expendable.


Peace of Mind
ONE' OF THE actions tied to progress we have' been exempt
from in the past Is the tendency for those desiring a little money
to hold up our convenience stores or fast food outlets. These op-
erations have been pretty safe and enjoyed trouble-free opera-
tions here in .our town for several years, while they seem to be
fair game for criminals in other, larger cities. Hardly a week goes
by without at least one being robbed over in that city which de-
lights in washing out our so-called dirty linen while they ignore
the "beam in their own eye".
Just last week, they' even had a case in court of what to do
with defendant wh6. had killed a clerk in a convenience store
-for a little bit of change. We haven't resorted to the savagery of
killing the clerks of such businesses, merely to obtain his few.
bucks from the till as yet.
THUS; IT WAS news last week when the Subway restaurant
was robbed at gun point here in Port St. Joe. The action was still
considered a phenomenon here in Port St. Joe, worthy of front
page mention, while in other cities such action was so common-
place as to be relegated to an inside page and the robber
didn't even discharge his gun!
The police say they:have several leads on the incident and
are trying to Just tie together a few loose ends before making an
arrest. Let us hope that by the time this issue of The Star hits
the streets, an arrest has been made in regards to the case.
We're not hard-timing our police department in the case; they
have been very efficient and thorough. We're merely hoping they
make an arrest, soon, in order to discourage such activities from
happening in the future to sully the name of an otherwise safe
place to live, raise children and do business in. Walking the:
streets at any time of the day or night with an assurance of safe-
ty is one of the better privileges we or any other city has.
IN PAST YEARS our police department has done a good job
of keeping our city safe. no matter what people' say about them
or pooh-pooh their small town abilities. We trust they will con-
tinue to be on the alert and still maintain our community as a
safe community. It just makes for a peace of mind which cannot
be purchased!.

by Kesley Colbert


Appreciating Gopher Sbup


'The changes were subtle-
but unmistakable. Oh, .he looked
-the same, and he sounded like
the old Josh, but there was a dif-
ferent air about him. He'd only
been gone for four months. Of
course, that' can be a twinkling of
an eye or an eternity, depending
on how you managed' the one
hundred, twenty one and one-half
days. _
He'd been away before. He
spent five days at a church camp
a couple of summers ago. And he
called home every night .....
He stood just a little s4ralght-
er, a little taller, maybe a little
more self-assured as he climbed
out of that familiar old blue pick-
up. Surviving the iflrst few
months of college has stiffened
many a' backs. I waited patiently
for Cathy to let go and then ex-
tended.a hand, "It's good to have


you home, sonl"
'Yes!" Bless his heart. It was
the all encompassing you don't -
have any Idea what I ye -
been through nor do you -
have any clue how truly -
good it is to be standing -
in this spot right now -
home at last home at LAST -
':HOME AT LAST 'yes". ,
It had tended toward the eter-
nity for him.
"Son, I believe you've lost
weight." Cathy was making the
universal, obligatory statement
'on behalf of mothers everywhere.
Nobody can fatten 'em up like
mom.
As Josh strolled by his
younger brother he whapped him
on the shoulder. Jesse returned
fire with a blow to the back.
Yes!
Before he sat down, he sur-
veyed every room, pausing here
and there to look at a picture, ex-
amine a hole that accidentally out
of nowhere appeared In the wall
some years' back, try on a base-
"'ball glove he'd used in little
league. :
Familiarity may breed con-
tempt in some circles but it sure


beats the heck out of the "any old
port in a storm" theory.
Josh ate his chicken dump-
lings. He ate mine. He ate Ca-
thy's. And he was eyeing his
brother's until Jess got his fork
up in the air. I'm not sure he was
all that hungry-I don't think
anybody could be that hungry-
but he sure, was working on his
mother's heart. Listen, if she had
cooked, burnt cactus strips with
gopher soup (and I think she has
a few times), he'd have eaten it-
and liked itl
I saw a. new appreciation for
his mother. And it went way be-
yond her culinary skills. He now
had some minute comprehension
Sas to._the "why fore" for all the
hours she had "put in" with him
at the table reading "A Tale' of
Two Cities", figuring out who shot
James A, Garfield or working on
one of those "x is the unknown
number" problems.
He even came out and ran his
hand across the top of the
dresser I'd been sanding on for
two days, "You don't quit 'till you
get it right, do you Dad?"
I couldn't tell If It was a com-
pliment or not.


He also sat down on a saw
horse and asked, 'What was col-
lege like for you?"
"Shoot, it was a walk In the
park. I studied a little, hung out
with the guys, played a lot of
baseball, hit home runs, pitched
shut outs-I would have made
the Dean's List if it hadn't a' been
for Dr. Flanningan. He taught
Russian history and he liked the
Commies better than us. I told
him if it was such a good system
he ought to move "
"Dad, for real." He was look-
ing me right in the yes.
"Josh, I remeinber my first
semester like it was yesterday. It
was the hardest thing I've ever
done. I was lonely. I felt lost.'I
wasn't sure all this learning was
going to do me any good, I wor-

about mygrades, I worried about

ETA OIN SHRDLU


j By Wesley Ramsey


countyseat at the time.

DAVE WAS TELLING his sto-
ry at Judge Robert M. Moore's in-
vestiture ceremony. He had been
asked to make a few remarks,
since he had personally known
every previous County Judge Gulf
County had ever had.
As a matter of fact, if Dave's
remarks were correct. he knew
more .about the history of who
had served in the past than the
County Judge's office did.
A couple of weeks ago I con-
tacted them.to verify the names of
past Judges. I, too, knew all of
them, I thought, though not per-


sonally. It turned out I knew
:them all personally but one.
According to Dave, Thomas
R. L. Carter, a stately old gentle-
,man who lived in one of the first
cluster of houses on St. Joe
Beach was also an appointed
Judge for about a year and a half,
Just as Judge Moore was. I didn't
know that, although I knew the
late Judge Carter.
The County Judge's office ap-
parently didn't know it either.
Judge Carter was appointed
to serve out the remainder of
Judge Alton Dendy's term, in
1939, when he resigned to seek
election to the Legislature.


THAT MAKES JUDGE Rob-
ert M. Moore Gulf County's ninth
County Judge. David Taunton
iwas County Judge for a longer,
period of time than any predeces-
sor. We'll just have to wait and
see whether Judge Moore betters-
that record, or not.
But back to 'Things I; learned
- while trying to find out something
else," courtesy of Dave Maddox.

.> 'SPEAKING AT BOB'S investi-
, ture ceremony, Dave was relating
a story about the "why" Gulf
County' was formed in the first
place. It probably wasn't an easy
procedure, forming a new county,
even in days when legal proce-
dures didn't require so much red
tape.
Today, one would need every-
thing but a note from your mom-
ma to initiate such a movement!
An impact study, a topographic
Survey and the effect such a move
would have on wetlands would


also be required.
"In Dave's story it was brought
about by a stubborn man being
assessed with what he deter-
mined to be an unjust fine.
There was, that kind of inde-
pendent men back then, tool

IT SEEMS THAT T. H. Stone,
first settler of Port St. Joe, was
called to jury duty in Blount-
stown, the county seat. Stone set
'out for Blountstown to do his civ-
ic duty on the back of his faithful
-mule, the best mode of travel on
the sand and mud trails of the
day.
Everything went as it should
until Stone arrived at Wewahitch-
ka toward the end of the first day
of his journey to Blountstown to
serve on the jury.
The mule got sick at Wewa-
hitchka. A day of treatment made
Stone a day late in reporting in
for jury .duty; a situation which
didn't sit too well with the presid-


ing judge, who promptly fined
Stone for contempt of court for
being a day late for jury duty. The
fine upset Stone who tried to ex-
plain, to no avail, just why he
was late.
.Now, I remember T. H. Stone,
and just how cantankerous he
could be. A mule wasn't even in
the running for the title of being
"most stubborn" compared with
Stone.
What Dave didn't say, but
what I surmised, was that Stone
was so miffed by having to pay
the fine that he immediately came
home and set about starting a
movement to .carve Gulf County
from Calhoun so he could report
for jury duty with no more than a
day's mule ride.
He was successful in his en-
deavor.
What I want to know is this;
what other county in the state of
Florida was formed because a
mule had the colic?

He left to go back yesterday

through the louse twice. "Just

We waved 'til he went out of

--I ILlI" .
'My Observations of Events of 1994"
Lisa Iarte Presley and Michael Jackson were married in
1994. I would call the event 'The Greatest Show On Earth," but
that title is; reserved for another event My opinion, for what it's
worth, Is, if she is that dumb, and apparently she is, she deserves
to be married to a suspected child molester. I wonder if she dresses
like a little boy for him.
One of the big events in the fashion world was the introduc-
tion of the Wonderbra. According to all the reports I read, they were
selling like hot cakes at a fat man's eating contest. I really don't
know much about the Wonderbra, but I would like to see more. I.
thought the bra was a thing of the past.. .
Barbara Streisand made a show business come-back, appear-
ing live, on stage for the first time in several years. She had a terri-
ble case of-stage-fright, according to news reports, but overcame It
to appear in several concerts, the proceeds of which were donated
to AIDS research. It was shown on TV, but 4 didn't think it was
worth the effort to click the channel changer to watch it. Given the
choice, I wpuld have watched a chess match' before I would have.
watched her perform..
'The Biggest Show on Earth" designation goes to the O.J.
Simpson fiasco. Do I think he's guilty of murderss? you might ask.'
Silly question, would be my answer. I wish they would change the
trial proceeding and have them moved to Florida. Justice might
stand'a chance. I'll bet almost any amount that he will walk in Cali-
fornia. Any takers? .
*If you don't believe crime pays, consider the case of Tonya
Harding who had Nancy Kerrigan crippled so she could win a skat-
,ing contest. Did you.see the picture of her crying before the judges
in Norway because her skate wasn't adjusted' properly? Why. I felt
so sony for her. I wish they had taken that skate off and put it. .
.well, somewhere besides on her foot! '
And there was the case .of Susan Smith who strapped her two',
children in their car seats and drove the car into a lake in South
Carolina. If I. could say my piece to Susan. I would say,. "Susan, you,
lowdown, good-for-nothing piece of humanity, I hope you get every-
thing that's coming to you. There's no excuse for what you did. May,
God have mercy on your pitiful soul."
Jackie Kennedy Onassis passed' from life in 1994. She was a
beautiful person, in my opinion. And I don't care about what has
been said about her since her death: She fit the role she played in
life. Very few of us do.. .
Quote of the year goes to Mari-ge Schott, owner of the Cincin-'
nati Reds, "Only fruits wear earrings!" She almost got the electric
chair for that onel
John Candy passed away last year. I liked him as a comedian
because he always seem to fit the roles he played. Thanks for the
laughs. John.
Kurt Cobainr, a rock star I had never heard of before his
death, killed himself last year, but not before trying to talk his wife
into going with. him. She refused, so he took the trip alone. A- trib-
ute to the drug culture.
Bill and Hillary Clinton were, under extreme pressure from a
lot of different sources in 1994. I've always heard that. "Where
there's smoke, there's fire!' If only Socks could talk and would
tell the truth!
Have a happy and successful 19951

BB Guns Cause
Police Problems
Port SL Joe Chief of Police,'
Carl Richter. said this week his
department is having a lot of
complaints stemming from young
boys and their use of BB guns.
,"Evidently a lot of kids received
BB guns for Christmas and are
putting them to use." Richter
said.
The law enforcement chief re-
,minds the community that the
use of BB guns. air or gas operat-
ed guns, electric weapons or de-
vices, or firearms by children un-
der 16 has severe limitations by
the State of Florida. State law
prohibits the use of BB guns, air
or gas operated guns and similar
items unless under the supervi-
sion and in the presence of an
adult.
Adults are responsible for the
actions of their children under
the age of 16, and those who
knowingly permit them to use the
guns are guilty of a second degree
misdemeanor.
Port St. Joe's code also pro-
hibits the discharge of any gun.
pistol or any other firearm inside
the city limits. The discharge of
the firearm carries a penalty
whether or not that discharge is
accidental or on purpose, and
whether or not a child is super-
vised or unsupervised.

remarks with his experience in
owning a champion bird dog.
Dave Maddox, Port St. Joe
historian, identified all eight pre-
decessor judges and gave some
little personal idiosyncrasy of
each. Maddox'said he personally
knew all of the eight predecessors
to Moore.
The oath of office was admin-
istered by the Honorable DeDee
Costello. Moore was helped into
his judicial robes by his wife,
Phyllis. and Issued a suitable re-
sponse to the remarks which had
been made. Moore said that his
goal for the future would be in
making Gulf County one of the
,best county judges it had ever
had. "I1 promise to work hard and
,represent each citizen of. the
county in a fair and impartial
manner," Moore said.

Government panel gives chiropractors a crack at back pain.


Reprint fromKnight-Ridder News-
papers, by Delthia Ricks
On Thursday, a 23-member fed-
eral panel led by an orthopedic
surgeon issued back-care guide-
lines that are already sparking con-
troversy but validate what chiro-
practors have said all along: spinal
manipulation works.
The panel of experts is advising
people with sudden, sharp back
pain to:'
* Spend no more than two to three
days in bed.


l*m*oia
S990** *l
ge**mmm
.0eg
Be*


.* Take over-the-counter painkillers
* Start moderate exercise as soon
as possible.
* If in need of professional help,
see a health-care professional who
performs spinal manipulation.
The guidelines, from the U. S.
Agency for Health Care Policy.and
Research, focus on the sharp, acute
back pain that afflicts an estimated'
8 million Americans and costs the
nation about $20 billion annually,
according to 1990 figures.
The federal panel of experts, led


by Dr. Stanley,J. Bigos, professor of
orthopedic surgery at the Universi-
ty, of Washington in Seattle, re-
viewed more than 3,900 studies to
prepare the new back-care guide-
lines.
"The real problem with back-
ache is not the pain but the impact
of being limited by the pain, which
can increase the possibility of long-
term disability," Bigos said.
Surgery helps only one in 100
people with acute low-back prob-
lems, he said, and there is no scien-


tific data supporting the use of po-
tent steroid medications.
Rather than high-tech. diagnos-
tics and therapies the panel recom-
mended applying an ice pack to
the painful area for five or 10 min-
utes. That should provide relief
within the first 48 hours. If not, a
hot shower or heating pad may
work. If those fail, spinal manipu-
lation probably is the best profes-
sional treatment, the new guide-
lines state.

Yo-Yo Dieting is Risky


A new year has begun, and
you're full of good intentions.
One of your resolutions may
be to lose weight by going on a
diet. While dieting itself is a chal-
lenge, so is the effort to keep the
weight off.
So-called "yo-yo" dieting is a
too-familiar routine for many peo-
ple concerned about being over-
weight. They lose pounds by re-
ducing calories. But once the diet
is stopped the weight returns.
In addition, yo-yo dieting has
drawn the attention of some re-
searchers concerned about its
safety.' Several studies have
shown that people who repeatedly
lose and gain weight have a high-
er overall death rate. They also
have a greater risk for. heart dis-
ease and cancer than some peo-
ple whose weight remains stable.
The American Heart Association
points out, however, that other
studies have not reported such
findings and says that. additional
research is needed.
Even so, the A.H.A. recom-
mends that individuals try to
maintain an ideal weight simply
because being obese contributes
to diabetes and cardiovascular
disease.
The answer may be to gradu-
ally reduce the amount of food
you eat. By not concentrating so
much calories, you begin to devel-
op a diet for life and at the same
time you lose weight.
Combining physical activity
with this strategy is also helpful.


Exercise is a sure-fire aid to suc-
cessful dieting-and to keeping
weight off. Exercise also helps
build muscle, which bums calo-
ries more quickly than other tis-
sues.
For more information about
diets and exercising, contact your
local American Heart Association
or call 1-800-AHA-USA1 (1-800-
242-8721).

Was Hard

Old Patrick Store


Being Moved; Spells


End to A'Former Age


The Patrick Store building
and Post Office has stood over-
looking the Intracoastal Water-
way at Overstreet for nearly 79
years. Built in 1916 by Thomas L.
Patrick, the building has seen the
Overstreet community etch a spot
out in the wilderness adjoining
the newly dug Intracoastal Water-
way. ;
It has seen wars come and
go, logging operations and tur-
pentine stills were spotted
throughout the wooded area. At
one time during the ,early 1920's
there were six turpentine stills
employing 1,000 workers in oper-
ation. The store was full of cus-
tomers all day long. Saw mills
have come and gone through the
years.
The old store front has'
weathered hurricanes and' even a
tornado in 195.0. It existed in the
days when its customers. had to
be ferried across the Waterway by
a cable-drawn ferry. Then, It saw
a floating bridge installed In'
1949, that would swing out of the
way to' let water traffic pass.


through. then swing back into
place to allow vehicular traffic to
cross the waterway.
TIME PASSES OVER
Time literally passed over the
little store a few years ago with
the construction of a new high
rise bridge that spans the water-
way, leaving Patrick's Store hid-
den in the shadows beneath the
towering structure overhead.
LAST POSTMARK
The Post Office. Issued Its last
official postmark on November.
12, 1991', Patrick's Store, has'
since closed its doors, and the.
store's owner since 1940, Edna
Hardy (daughter of Thomas' Pat-.
rick), has passed away.
TQ BE MOVED TO HAVANA
But. new life has been breathed
into the structure, all the way
down to the faded "Gulf' sign still
swinging on a rusted pole beside,
the store. Margaret Weatherly,
daughter of Edna Hardy, told The
Star last week that the store had
been purchased by "The Nichol-
son House", a restaurant near


; ..' .
Ducky Johnson Housemovers are shown preparing the old store
building to be moved. They will remove the roof to enable it to pass


Havana which features several.
antique buildings in their com-
pound. The new owners intend to
move the store in its entirety to
their property, restoring it as a
general store featuring cured,
hams, steaks, sausage, souvenirs
and gift Items.
"Ducky" Johnson House Mov-
ers are currently in the process of
moving the structure and expect
to have it in place' on the Nichol-
son House property by Friday of
this-week if everything goes with-
out a hitch,, according to repre-
sentatives of the firm.
Mrs. Weatherly said several
people wanted to purchase por-
tions of the building but "The
Nicholson House" offered to pur-
chase the entire building and
contents, moving them to Hava-
na. .. ... I .. .
"I hate to see' it gd."'s.she's'aid,_
"but It will still remain in one
piece continuing to stand in
memory of my mother, thanks to
the 'Nicholson House'. 11 meant
so much to Mother and played
such a part in her life that the
store almost seems like a part of
her. The new owners and people
of this area can still enjoy remi-
niscing about the past In its new
setting," said Mrs. Weatherly.
FATE INTERVENED
Mrs. Weatherly said that as .
, 'Ohe looks back at how the restau-
.ran't owners and she discovered
each other,' she knows It must,
liave been fate for "The Nicholson'
House" to purchase Patrick's
Store.
Margaret explained she had
been invited to Tallahassee by her,. :
daughter. Peggy Land, 'to go to
the FSU/Duke football game Oc-
tober 29th. After the game they
decided to go out and eat a steak'
for supper. While trying to make
.up their minds where to go Peggy '
.told her of this steak house she
had heard of that was really sup-
posed to be good (The Nicholson
House). Neither of them knew
where it was located and had ac-
tually pulled. into the parking lot


of another restaurant. As they
were getting out of .their vehicle.
they asked someone who had
pulled in beside them if they
knew where "The Nicholson
House" was.
"It's on Highway 12 between
Havana and Quincy." they re-
plied, and then they loaded back
into the car heading that way.
Mrs. Weatherly said she ordered
a steak, but that she had also
seen on the menu. "Home-made
pies-just like Mama used to
make".
Well, "I had to see if it was
really as good as my Mamma
used to make", she explained. In
order to have room for some pie,
Margaret didn't eat much of her
steak and asked for a carry-out to
take the left-overs home. Willard
Rudd, (the, restaurant manager)
saw she hadn't eaten her steak
and approached the table asking,-
"Is there a problem with your
meal?"
S' "No," Margaret answered, go-
ing on to explain about the pie on
the menu.
S'They talked for a while be-
fore Mr. Rudd asked "Where ya'll
from?"'
S "From a place you've never
heard of, Overstreet. Florida,"
Margaret answered.
"Come with me, I've got some-
thing I want to show you," Willard
said.
.H' He led them through the
main dining hall, and as they ap-
proached one of the walls he
pointed to a charcoal drawing of
the floating bridge that once
spanned the Intracoastal Water-
way. Margaret looked at the
drawing and pointed to the little
,,;store building outlined next to
the bridge saying. "You see that
store right there-I own it."
'You're kidding," Rudd ex-
claimed, "I've been visiting that
store since I was 10 years old,
stopping by on my way to the
beach."
To make a long story short,
Paul Nicholson and Willard Russ
met with Mrs. Weatherly, and


under power lines, and will replace it after it arrives on site near Ha-
vana.


agreed to purchase the store from
her and her brother, Dan Cole-
man. The store will be the sixth
historic building to be restored


and moved to the Nicholson prop-
erty, where It will retain the same
name it had when it opened' May
1. 1916, "Patrick's Store".


The last mail was postmarked November 12, 1991, from this
desk. The cubbyhole for sorting mail is shown above the desk.


The front window of the post office is shown as it looked on its last day of dispatching mail.


Antique scales for weighing postal parcels are shown next to a more modern version. The antique
scales are more than a hundred years old.

Judge Moore Is


Speaker at Rotary


Robert M. Moore, Gulf
County's new county judge
spoke to the Rotary Club Thurs-'
day afternoon, outlining some of
the new services his office is go-
ing to be offering Gulf County's
legal community. Moore said that
his capacity as an attorney allows
him to perform certain legal,
tasks., which had previously"
caused the legal procedure in the
county to move at a slower pace.
due to the fact that a judge/
attorney had to apply their seal of
approval on matters before they
could be acted upon.
Moore said that some of these
activities included such items as
uncontested foreclosures, divorc-
es. etc. "Most of these legal mat-
ters are more or less rubber
stamped items but they must
have the presence of a Judge with
legal training to meet the require-
ments as Florida law." according
to Moore. ,
The new Judge said that crim-
inal matters in Gulf County's por-
tion of the 14th Judicial System
will be speeded up considerably
and the judiciary will be making a
more visable appearance
throughout the community than
they have in the past. "It is not
necessary in a small county like
Gulf for a county judge to limit
his time to strictly county judge
procedures. There Isn't that many
of them to occupy all of his time;
" consequently, part of my planned
itinerary I will include Circuit
Court procedures as well as.
county court procedures," Moore,
pointed out
- He said that senior Circuit
Judge Russell N. Bower would be
making regular court appearanc-
es in Gulf County beginning the
first of this year. Judge Dedee Co-
stello, who formerly served Gulf
County, has been given another'
assignment. Judge Bower will be
in Port St. Joe one day each week

appearance.
As an example, Moore .said
that just that morning (Thursday)
he had handled the case of two
men who had been passing
through Gulf County and stopped
by law enforcement officials for
speeding. On closer examination,
the officials tentatively deter-
mined that 6ther more serious
charges against the two men were
appropriate 'and locked them
overnight in Gulf County's jail on
felony charges. Judge Moore said
that his capabilities allowed him
to conduct a. first appearance
'hearing oh the young men on the,
following morning. Had he not,
been able to do so. some Circuit
Judge would have had his regular
schedule upset to come to Port
St. Joe to the hearing because
Florida law requires defendants
be given the first appearance.'
within 24 hours of their arrest or
they can be released. ,
S Moore said that he wants to
.be of service to the county and its
citizens while he is in office.

Our Positive Action Word for

Friendships don't just happen.
They take energy and effort. Start
by letting people know that you're
interested in them. Don't Just talk
about yourself. Ask questions
about them. Then listen to what
they say. (It's amazing how many
people forget to do this, or don't
know how.) Helen Gurley Brown

the talking, you are boring some-

SChiles Wants


Less Regulation

Cook Shed Caper Causes Concern
7This old reporter is getting a kick out of covering the ideas coming up
in the seat of Florida government inside the Tallahassee sometimes
called Taxahassee beltway. It's an especially interesting time in our
state's history and my twilight years in journalism.
'Take he-coon Gov. Lawton Chiles inauguration cracker-speak sum-
mation at his inauguration last week that "Government don't work. Peo-
ple do," followed by a string of testimonies from various supporters of his
who mostly were lobbying for some state program.
Chiles said an old cracker told him on one of his historic walks in
Florida years ago that, "You know. Government don't work." The old he-
coon, of course, came up with that other idea that people do work after
years of thinking about it. Maybe the old cracker was right the first time,
but heck,,we have to. keep trying don't we? Especially if you make your
living as a professional politiclan. .
Another big idea Chiles threw out at his inauguration was a call for a.
50 percent cut in government rules and regulations. After all, he ran into
a lot of red tape in trying to get a state permit to build his little ole cook
shack in some woods he owns near Tallahassee and finally discovered
what's making people so "damn mad" with government.
Like Senate President Jerry Thomas did 20 years ago, Chiles de-
clared war on government rules. Thomas called it a war against "shadow
'government" of Tallahassee.
There were as of Oct. 31 last year some 28,750 rules in the Florida
Administrative Code. Lt Gov. Buddy MacKay would have to review some
57 per working day in the two years that Chiles gave him to reduce them
by 50 percent.
There is no doubt that MacKay and Chiles may help in the eternal
mother of all wars against rules, especially with all the help they auto-
matically inherit from our first Republican Senate and most conservative
Florida House since Reconstruction.
te.Early this week, Chiles' office, Associated Industries of Florida and
the Florida Chamber of Commerce were giving, their ideas to a House Se-
lect Committee on Streamlining Government Regulations.
Other ideas coming up in House .and Senate committee meeting in
the capitol this week are: barriers to college graduation; the state's prison
space crunch and proposed bills requiring prisoners to serve more of.
their sentences; charter schools, tuition vouchers and an extended
school year; and the impact of revenue caps on public school financing.
Couple that idea sampling with the suit that 45 school districts are,
bringing, against the Legislature for its alleged failure to finance educa-
tion in Florida and you have an interesting year ahead in the Legislature.
An encouraging development last week has one old marine, new Re-
publican Comptroller Bob Milligan, hiring another old former marine and
legislator. Democrat Art Simon, as head of the Division of Banking. Si-
mon, who ran against now defeated Comptroller Gerald Lewis in the par-
ty primary, may not beon the job long. Milligan wants to remove banking
regulations out of the comptroller's. office. But that's nothing new for ma-
rines. You do a good job and get out of there. Just ask any old marine.
An even more encouraging development is the mostly ignored so far
first step in revolutionizing Florida government by applying performance '
standards to items passed in the annual budget. Right now and in the
past money has been appropriated to agencies with few if any checks to
see if the programs they fund are working. The procedure has now 'been
set up to change that business as usual attitude. Perhaps fiscal conser-
vatives in the Senate and House who now have more clout.will use it to
apply some business standards to government.

Capital News Round-Up
TALLAHASSEE (WNS)' A plan to abolish the State Department of
Commerce but ease its some 300 employees into other jobs was expected
to be announced early this week by Gov. Lawton Chiles as Legislative
commitiies meet irnTallahassee. "'
Chiles in ani'oppareht' effort td get the jtinp on conservative lawmak-'
ers who are expected to enthusiastically take up his recent call for a
slash in state rules and waste has named Lt. Gov. Buddy MacKay to
oversee the shift-of Florida's economic development programs to Enter-
prise Florida, a public-private enterprise based in Orlando.
MacKay said the shift is another example of privatization and the
state will make sure no employees will lose out financially by relocating
them through job-finder system. MacKay headed the 1993 reorganization .
of the Department of Health and Rehabilitative Services. When secretary
Ben Watts privatized the toll, collection system of the Department of
Transportation. he issued abid proposal requiring the private contrac- V
tors to take all the employes who wanted to stay in the system.
The dismantling of the department will begin in July if it is approved
by the Legislature in the 1995 regular session that begins March 7.
Chiles has planned to abolish the department for about a year to save
taxpayer money by letting the industries that benefit finance most of the
state's efforts to attract economic development and tourism.

,them free medicine, food and schooling, according to recent polls. The
only question is whether the state will quietly restrict benefits through its
agencies or go all out with a constitutional amendment?
Both Gov. Lawton Chiles and Republican challenger Jeb Bush called
for a crackdown on illegal immigration to Florida during their recent elec-
tion campaigns. Chiles even filed a damage suit against the federal gov-
ernment for the, cost to Florida of Its failure to stop illegal entry to the
state.
A recent national poll showed 62 percent of Americans would elimi-
nate federal and state benefits (including education) to illegal immi-
grants. It also showed 73 percent oppose eliminating public assistance to
legal immigrants.
ADOPTIONS URGED: Florida has thousands of children growing up
in foster homes who could have their own families if the state Worked.
hard to find adoptive parents, according to a Miami attorney who is
threatening to sue Gov., Lawton Chiles and the Department of Health and
Rehabilitative Services if they don t do something about it.
"It (the state) has made little progress in moving children from state
custody to adoptive families," said Karen Gievers, who brought a class-
action suit against the state in 1990, but canceled it when Chiles and the
HRS said they would cut the average stay of children in foster homes.
Gievers brought the suit on behalf of six siblings who have spent
most of their lives in foster homes.
FOOT LOCKER: Raul Bey, Las-Vegas businessman and a key figure
in the Foot Locker scandal at Florida State University, was charged with
failing to register as a sports agent last week a third degree felony.
Bey's credit card was used to finance a $6,000 shopping spree at the
Foot Locker in Governor's Square rMall in Tallahassee for star football
players on the 1993 national championship team. He operates Sports
Entertainment Enterprise in Las Vegas and was expected to make a first
appearance In court early this week. .
SLASH BUDGETS: Florida Senate leaders want Gov. Lawton Chiles
and state agency heads to rethink their way of doing business and slash
budgets by at least 25 percent. '.,,
"We don't want across the board budget cuts that would eliminate or
reduce heeded high-priority programs," said Senate Ways and Means
Chairman Mario Diaz-Balart, R-Miami, in a letter tp agency heads. He
didn't identify specific cuts, but said the goal was to eliminate low-
priority programs, increase the efficiency of current programs and elimi-
nate duplication of efforts between the state and private sector.
The suggestions of the first Republican Senate since Reconstruction,
coupled with. a conservative majority in the Florida House, are expected
to be taken seriously by Chiles and state agency heads.
SMITH MAY TEACH: Former Secretary of State Jim Smith may still
teach at Florida State University, but for now he has joined the Bryant,
Miller and Olive law firm and is no longer seeking the athletic director's
post at his old school.
Smith withdrew from the governor's race when he trailed Jeb Smith
for the GOP nomination in the first primary, then ran unsuccessfully for
agriculture commissioner. Last month, he said he decided against seek-
Ing the athletic department post at FSU which has been vacated by Bob
Groin, but he is still thinking about teaching some classes in which he
could draw from his long record of public service dating back to the late
1960s.
THAT HE-COON VEST Gov., Lawton Chiles was wearing at his Inau-
guration ball was given to him by longtime friend, Tallahassee resident,
Jan Lindner. She bought the vest made of coon skins 13 years ago in
New Jersey long before co6ns came back into style after.Chiles' cracker-
speak statement to challenger Jeb Bush that "the old he-coon walks just
before the light of day." It would be difficult to buy anywhere today.
NO Sl FEE: The state can't charge Medicaid patiefits $1 each time
they get'a free prescription 'filled:,-,ccordtftg td& Florida 'Supreme Court
ruling last week that ended a move to save roughly $6 million in the $6.6
billion health program for the poor.'
State officials had hoped to use the small fee to discourage unneces-
sary prescriptions, but Florida Legal Services, an advocacy group, con-
tended in a law suit that lawmakers needed a separate law to create the
fee. The issue could go before the Legislature at its session this spring.

TOUGHER SENTENCING can turn prisons into pressure cookers of
violence and the Legislature appears unwilling to raise taxes to avoid it,
says.First District Court of Appeal Judge Charles Miner.
Miner heads a criminal justice study committee that recommended a
half-cent increase to Florida's six cent sales tax to build and operate pris-
ons. .
"Even in this non-election year I see ,no indication that lawmakers
are willing to raise, taxes," Miner said.
SEMEN STAINS found on a chair in suspended Gulf County Sheriff
Al Harrison's office at Port St. Joe may be used in his trial on charges of
coercing sexual favors from women jail inmates, say federal prosecutors.
A DNA* report filed in the case show the semen stains found on a
chair and on. the carpet in his office have a high probability of coming
from Harrison. Prosecutors said they delayed a month in arresting Harri-
son after he had been charged by a grand jury in order to have the re-
sults of the lab tests of semen stains and samples of Harnson's blood.
FIRED OFFICIAL GETS JOB: Former state corrections chief Richard
Dugger has a new job as administrator of the Clay County Jail that will
assure him a full state pension for 30 years of service in six months.
Dugger was fired by present Corrections Chief Harry Singletary on charg-
es he coerced employees to contribute money to Jeb Bush's campaign for
governor. Dugger has denied the charge although he said he favored
Bush over Gov. Lawton Chiles.

I ews On Dental Health


Maybe you've heard an
abscess described as a gum
boil or gum pimple, but what-
ever it's called, this infection
of the gum may cause se-
vere pain until it is treated by
your dentist. Usually when
someone has a gum abscess
there will be swelling caused
by the inflammation as well
as pain and soreness. The
cause of the abscess may
not be as obvious as the re-
sults. This type of mouth in-
fection may originate in the
gum or in the tooth above the
gumline, or it- may have its
origin in the. nerve and root
of the tooth. More certain is
the discomfort this conditioi-
can cause and the need for

immediate dental treatment
to prevent the infection from
spreading.
One method of treatment
is to open up the abscess
and drain it. This will result in
immediate and grateful relief.
Then the cause of the ab-
scess must be treated. An
abscessed tooth can often
be saved from extraction if
there is enough bone remain-
ing around the root of the
tooth to give it good support.
