The railroad crossing on Fifth Street and Highway 71 has
become the inspiration for local Police to give special atten-
tion to motorists who drive around barriers which have
been lowered to allow trains to have the right-of-way. Police
chief Carl Richter says the practice is dangerous; against
the law.

Chief Richter said. "People

For more that two decades,

death last year. Their daughter,
Trish Tapper Warriner, continues
the tradition.

Just prior to his death in
1986, Senator Tapper established
the Tapper Foundation to contin-
ue his work. Each year. the Foun-
dation supports the work of a
wide variety of community organi-
zations. This year, Warriner pre-
sented grants totalling $45,000 to


area organizations at a press con-,
ference at Gulf Coast Community
College.
The grants included: $1.000
to the Anchorage Children's
Home and $1,000 to the South-
ern Scholarship Foundation.

Cracking Down

WHAT GOOD DO citizens' committees do? How important
are they to the improvement of our surroundings? Can they ac-
tually get anything done? Who listens to them, anyhow?
We're sure the citizen members of Gulf County's education
improvement have asked the same questions or had the same
doubts at one time or another.
We're sure that more than one person asked himself, and
others, "What can that Chamber of Commerce committee do
with something as managed by politics as our school system and
its operating procedures?"
A LEGAI. ADVERTISEMENT found somewhere in this
week's issue, of The Star answers that question for you.
The citizens' committee has studied the problem for at least
the last four years, along with the best minds in the nation's ed-
ucational community. The Gulf County committee has examined
the problem from the classroom to the lunchroom; from the ad-
ministration to the maintenance, from the textbook to the deten-
tion hall; from the millions of dollars received from the state.and
county to the $2.00 charged to attend a baseball game; from
student activities to student behavior.
They have looked at it all through a powerful magnifying
glass. .
'THE RESULT OF this examinatllon is just beginning to trick-
le down to the level of actually applying some of the solutions'
suggested in these hundreds of meetings at which gallons of
sweat and tears have been shed over this very, very serious mat-
Ster. You have lot at stake and they have a lot at stake. Our
children will either benefit or they wfil suffer. It's up to us to de-
cide which.
This week the Gulf County School Board takes the first step
to create a policy of creating a safe and sane atmosphere for our
students to study and learn. This may seem like a fickle subject,
but with its inception, no student will any longer be allowed to
bring a weapon to school, endanger the well being, of another, or
wantonly, disturb the learning atmosphere of those who come to
school to get an education.
', The penalty for breaking either of these rules? He or she will
be yanked out, of the school and kept out of the classroom for
the remainder of the school year. We urge your support of our
school board in this endeavor.



SFrugal Administration

WE 'THINK THE Gulf County Commission did the correct
and prudent thing last Tuesday when they rejected all bids on
their proposed paving project. The lowest bid-that of Florida As-
phalt of Panama City-was just too rich for the county's blood.
The low bid was some $599,161 [not much change back for a
$600,000 bill] and the county possessed only $350.000 to do the
job they wanted done.
It's too bad C. W. Roberts didn't enter a bid because of the
adverse publicity he has received; recently 'for-working with the
coQuityk fathersto stretch Gulf O 'u-rty's-r'o.dd.,hpaving dollars as
far as they would go. But, maybe, next time...
GULF COUNTY'S ENGINEER representative, Ralph Rish of
Prebble-Rish, Engineers, had a tentative price figured for the
County Commission so they would have some price to compare
the' bid with, to see that they were getting our money's worth.
Rish figured pretty liberally but not with any waste in mind. He
figured what the roads should cost without any favors being giv-
en the county by the contractor, or any corners cut, or without
any of the work being done by the county road department. Still,
all bfds Were far too high for the county's purse, so the Commis-
sion did the only thing they could do; they rejected the bids.
So, hot only would recent publicity have cost the county ap-
proximately $100,000 extra for roads we wished to have paved,
it has also 'cost us the "hand-shake" dealings with a legitimate
'contractor and friend to get the paying done, economically, of a
high quality and efficiently, from someone who would do the job
conscientiously. Not to say the bidders wouldn't, but they would

all have wanted at least $10.0.00 more money than we had-to'do
. the job.
WE HAVE BICKERING between our County Commissioners.
clashes of personalities and philosophies but one thing we
aren't saddled with Is a Commission composed of wastrels. They
'all tend to squeeze a' dollar until George Washington yells for
mercy!


Dear Editor: .
After reading the News Her-
ald's articles concerning alleged
wrong-doing by Gulf County offi-
cials and certain private busi-
nessmen, I felt compelled to write
this letter. ;
I would like the public to
know that there are a lot of good
and intelligent people in Gulf'
County. This includes public offi-
cials, business people, and pri-
vate citizens. Also., t Is my opLn-
ion and experience that certainly
some, if not all the people named
in your articles fall Into this cate-
gory.
Some of the News Herald's al-
legations may hold some truth, in
that all federal or state rules or
regulations may not have been
followed to a point. It may seem
Ironical that while the articles
were being published the Govern-
or _and Qther state officials weie
holding a meeting in Panama City
regarding reduction or elimina-
tion of many rules and regula-
tions in the state.
In the relatively short time
that I have resided' in Florida, 'I
have met a number of people in
Gulf County and have found that
over all they are among the most
friendly and ;helpful people that I
have ever met. A number of pub-
lic officials,' private business peo-
ple, and 'citizens have extended
their help or services; -free of
charge; as an aid to my locating a

County. It was because of the
general reception that I received
from these people, among otlier
factors, that I have decided to lo-
cate my business in Gulf County.
I have attended County Com-
mission meetings and have had
private meetings with a number
of those individuals mentioned in
the News Herald's articles and

Where Does A
The Money G
Editor,
Most of the time, where
is smoke, there is fire. For
reason, taxes on my property
gone up, almost doubling i
last few years, but services
declined. So where does all
ey go?
Recently,. the Governor,
just cause, replaced the s
with an out of county reI
ment. I wondered why the
sheriff hired an assistant

at the bottom. Ruby felt the only
reason he didn't "take off' was too
much Quaker Oats for breakfast
Over the years, as I got to know
'em both. that Incident helped ex-
plain a lot of things .....
I first remember Ruby Nell at
the family reunions. As you re-
call, those reunions were built
around talking and eating and
reminiscing. Listen, to a six year-
old, those three things taken to-
gether would bore a wart off 'a
hog's back. The "little ones" stood
politely in the corner "on our best
behavior" receiving an occasional
pat on the head and mostly wait-
ing for the grown-ups to finish
eating so we could get our chick-
en neck. Aunt Ruby Nell would
grab us by the hand, 'Let's get
out of here, these old people are
killing me."
We'd be off to explore the at-
tic. Or wrestle the Loch Ness
monster hiding out in Uncle Clif-
ford's barn. Or explore the woods
down by Sugar Creek. Somehow,
someone always managed, to acci-
dentally fall in the creek. Ruby
would give me a push and then
SJump in beside me, "Come onr
Kes, we've got to save them" ;
I'll tell you what was saved-
the family reunion.
I got to be a teenager and
Ruby Nell was pushing thirty. I
still couldn't eat at the first sit-
ting but I knew I wouldn't have to
,waitpatien-.
"Come on Kes, these old peo-
ple are choking me.... r
Ruby wasn't irreverent (well,
maybe just a little), you can't im-
agine how much she loved "those
old people" but she spent her
time with us. I think she figured
she had a better chance of getting
us up to her speed .. ....
Time and space doesn't.per-
mit me' to give you all the de-
tails-the mad, midnight drives,
the daredevil test, the wild West
African elephant ride, chasing the
police car-catching the police
car, the rigged hog calling con-
test, the strip- poker game, swal-
lowing Aunt Beatrice's hat'pin .
Ruby Nell was a mess. But
what a happy. fun-loving mess.
And to every grandchild, cousin,
nephew, etc. that wasn't eligible
for the hot biscuits and the chick-
S-en breast-she was our- mess.
Ruby lives down in Cocoa
now. And if you "think staring six-
ty in the face has changed her
one iota ...... "Kes, there's too
many old people around here, I've
started working at the day care
center at the christian school.
Sixty-four little rascals to wrestle
with every dayl What a great job!"
She was talking a hundred.
miles an hour as her two grand-
sons bounded up, into my lap.
'You want to fight?" Andy chal-
lenged. I grabbed him and rolled
to the floor. Josh was beating me
with a shoe as I went down. We
fought all night, all the, next day
and I was going for the sleeper
hold when mother, Linda, called
time-out for supper.
She "apologized" for the boys,
"jumping all, over you. They're a
little hyper." I glanced over at
their grandmother and remem-
bered that those acorns don't fall
far from the tree.,
Linda's work is NASA related.

S.found in supermarkets and con-
venience stores alongside The En-
.quirer and other of the tabloids
famous for their sensational sto-
ries about running into Elvis in a
soda fountain on Mars, or some
other "believable" fiction about fa-
mous or near famous people they
would rather not see in print;,
staring at the customers when
they check out'with their loaf of
bread and quart of milk.


I think they should be given a
.raise in salary since its evident
they either formerly worked with
the Lantana-based Star [I have to
print the name of it's home base
to keep it at arms-length from as-
sociation with this marvelous
newspaper] or the Enquirer, of
equal fame, or they qualify for ed-
itorial posts on said publications.
[Does this sound too much
like Steve Bornhoff might have
authored it?]

I'M GOING TO get right to
the point and tell you why I think
Cherie and Ian deserve this raise.
It's for the research ability
and writing skill they have so
ably demonstrated.,
It took no little bit of skill to
research the article over the
months [and no small bit of the
Newsless Herald's expense ac-
count] in order to be able to
present three "fact-filled" days of
endless Jabber, page after page


and get people to read 'itt The sto-:
ry was a bit long, people. I should
penalize you some of my support
for your raise on that account.]
But, give them the verbose
method of telling their tale. It's a
bit unusual and takes more than
a little skill on their part, to be
able to tell you, up front, that no
money had been stolen. No laws
had been broken. The people of
Gulf County got a good, decent
paving job, and more of it than
usual, from the kind of money
they spent. Everything was done
in a proper manner but not
the kind of proper manner the re-
porters would like to see! 'Nobody.
has gotten rich off the jobs, but
did whatever they did for the good
of the citizens; the only ones who
profited off the deal.
They told you all of that to
begin with and then grabbed the
attention of everybody in Gulf
County, at least, by revealing the
"sordid" facts that Billy Traylor,
'Warren Yeager, George Roberts


and Ralph Rish have all beer
friends since boyhood days and
grew up to be decent, hard,
working, church-going, good citi
zens, who tried to give Gulf
County all they possibly could fo#
their money. Heavens-to-betsyi n
Doesn't Bay County have any
of this type of citizen to writd
about? Or Is it that Cherie and
Ian are so surprised at finding
this type person in such an out of
the way place as Gulf and Liberty
County, that they couldn't believe
they were on the up-and-up even
though, as they stated, all the evil
dence point to that?


I RECKON THE hard-boiled
publishers of the Newsless Her-
ald haven't given the raise be+
cause they figure if two of theit
reporters spend that much time
[several months] and money re-
searching a story, they ding-dang
better come up with considerable
copy someone wll read, or else
hit the road

229-- 8979


During the past few years I have promised myself (and others of
close association) that I was going to write a book. If any of you
have ever tried to write a book, you must know what a tedious task
it is.
First of all there must be a subject or a theme about whichyou
will write. Then, It's very important that you prepare an outline. It's
kinda like planning a trip; you must know where the story is going.
Then, there are the characters, their descriptions for the readers
and how they interact with the main theme. And it goes on and on
and on .....
For several years I have tried and, quite frankly, had just about
decided that I was not up to it. During the past few months, howev-
er, I have had a change of heart.. and mind. I have settled on a
subject and, as of today, have started on my "rough draft:" of my
first book.
The idea came to me several weeks; ago while I was writing an
article go in this space. The title of my first book will be, "Life's Lit-
tle Self-Destruction Book", and it will include an assortment of little
instructions that one can use in daily life to assure one of complete
destruction at a very early or premature age. A preview of the in-
structions is below.
1 Be selfish. Start at an early age and think about no one
but yourself. If you start soon enough, you will have many
enemies and hate yourself before you know what's going
on.
8 Talk back to your mother and father. They might give you
a spanking at first, but sooner or later they will decide you
have a "personality conflict" and try to use child psycholo-.
gy on you and then you can get awayy with anything. And,
child psychology hurts a lot less than a good spanking,
which is what you really need.
28 Start smoking at an early age. I know it may be hard, es-
pecially if your parents don't smoke, but you can do it if
you keep on puffin'.. Your peers will think you are some-
thing big/and they may try it, too. If you start early enough
you can probably be on oxygen by your mid-to-late twen-
ties. That will be a barrel of fun ,
34 Be a problem child at school. Create a. disturbance every
chance you get. You will make bad grades and the teach-
ers will hate you, but, after all, that's what you want: At-
tentlon! '
42 Start, using alcohol at an early age. You might want to
start qn wine,' then go to beer and then to vodka or whis-
key. On second thought. mix them all. together and then
you will be better prepared for the next step, which is
'drugs.
51 Tell lies every chance you get, especially to those who are'
close to you, like your parents, teachers, girlfriend, bud-
dies and enemies. Doing this will prepare you for your first
divorce, which won't be long after you are married. If you
start this step early in life. you may be able to run through
several marriages before you self-destruct.
Well,, there are a few samples of the contents of my first book.
Tell the truth: Do you think it will sell?
If you would like a "first edition", signed by the author, send a
six-pack and a pack of Lucky Strikes to me at the Heartbreak Hotel,
Lonely Street, Alone, Florida.
I'm really not writing a book. That was a lie. But go ahead and
send the si.;pack. r

Natives Resist Development


In spite of 50% infant mortal-
ity, 90 degree average tempera-
tures, very little rainfall and the
largest variety of poisonous
snakes in the world, indigenous
to the country, Sierra Leone is
one 'of the, most resident-friendly
places in the world to live, H. C.
Boyar told the Kiwanis Club
Tuesday at their regular meeting-
Sluncheon.
Boyar, a .former director for
the UN, lived for two years in the
African nation, directing their de-
velopment of a fishing industry.
Boyar said his children at-
tended the schools there and re-
ceived a very good educa-
tion."They went to school for most
of the year" he said, with only an
intermittent week or so of vaca-
tion. "All were ahead of their
grade, level when we returned to


the states," the speaker said.
Sierra Leone produces a fifth
of' the world's diamonds and ex-
ports a good portion of the
world's bauxite. The country
boasts abundant seafood in the,
seas adjacent to the coastline.and.
exports a great portion of the
world's tuna.
When the nation applied for
membership in the UN in 1961 it
had no national treasury or mon-
ey at the time. Food and housing,
is very cheap and food is plenti-
ful. The nation is populated with'
an abundance of wild animals, in-
cluding elephants, water buffalo,'
and crocodiles.
"One of the worst things we
tried to do for the nation, was to
develop the nation," Boyar said.
When UN experts left the nation,

after a time of training the local
populace, the people went back to
their old way of doing things.
Boyar said the people have
strong human values. The nation
is made up of 14 different tribes.
Their personal loyalties place
tribe, first; family, second and
country, third. "People will not
harm any person in his own tribe
or family.

by local police in' DeFuniak
Springs on a routine check. This
'led Gulf County authorities to a
possible name, which along with
fingerprints, led to the identity of
Csondor.
Kate Glass Road is located in
the northern end of Gulf County,
off Highway 71, close to the Cal-
houn County line. Csondor's
body was found by hunters under
a small bridge crossing a narrow*
creek. Due to the decomposition
of the body the medical examiner
has been unable to determine the
cause of death.
Gulf County Sheriff Frank
McKeithen said the investigation
into the case would continue un-
til all leads are exhausted or a
cause of death Is determined.
Last week the Medical Exam-
iner contacted the Gulf County
Board of Commission asking
them to bury the body which had
been keep in storage since its dis-
covery over two months ago.

In spite of 50% infant mortal-

largest variety of poisonous
snakes in the world, indigenous

Boyar told the Kiwanis 'Club
Tuesday at their regular meeting-
luncheon.
Boyar, a former director for
,the UN, lived for two years in the
African nation, directing their de-
velopment of a fishing industry.
Boyar said his children at-
tended the schools there and re-
ceived a very good educa-
tion."They went to school. for most
of the year" he said, with only an
intermittent week or so of vaca-
tion. "All were ahead of their
grade level when we returned to
the states." the speaker said.
S Sierra Leone produces a fifth
of the world's diamonds and ex-
ports, a, good portion -of the
world's, bauxite. The country
n boasts abundant seafood in the
r seas adjacent to the coastline and
exports a great portion of the

membership in the UN in 1961 it
had no national treasury or mon-
ey at the time. Food and housing
are very cheap and food is plenti-
ful. The nation is populated with

The rubber hit the road when Gov. Lawton Chiles at a Florida Cabi-
net meeting last week said he really didn't trust local school boards to
make the right decisions in some cases in spite, of the state's move to
turn control of educaUon back to the district level.
'"We either trust local school districts or we don't," Secretary of State
Sandra Mortham said. "Under the spirit of Blueprint 2000 reforms, the
idea Is to give local boards control over education." Chiles' statement
,came as the cabinet sat as the state school board and he were question-
ing a suggestion by Education Commissioner Frank Brogan to fold all
pre-kindergarten money ($104 million) Into the general school funding
program with a block grant that school districts could use as they see fit.
Sound familiar? It's the same plan a Republican-controlled U.S. Con-
gress Is proposing for many federal programs dear to the hearts of liberal
Democrats.
A Florida House subcommittee took a similar approach, melding all
pre-kindergarten money into the general school funding formula to dis-
tribute money to local school districts. .
TOUGHEST CRIME REFORM BILLS so far have.been filed in the
session. They would abolish sentencing guidelines, bar defense lawyers
from questioning victims before trial and punish prisoners who file frivo-
lous or malicious lawsuits. 'Attornrey Ger. Bob Butterworth said present
laws are too convenient for criminals and too costly for taxpayers. There
were so many sheriffs in the capitol pushing the legislative package that
reporters wondered who is back home keeping the store.
SURPRISE: The Republican-led state senate proposed cuts of $1.2,
million Friday'which is about 2 to 3 percent of the $40 billion expected
budget, not the 25 percent agencies were asked to slash from their wish
list in a priority-setting exercise. The Florida House proposed similar
amounts in reductions. ,. -. : ,
Some of the Senate cuts were in low priority programs such as $3.2
million from radio and television stations; $3.7 million from university'
support for museums and and galleries: $9.8 million from pregnant
women in their third pregnancy on welfare, although they would still get
other benefits'. including food stamps, medical care and nutritional sup-
plements for that third pregnancy; $5.7 million from cuts in meat and
vegetable inspection programs; and $35.5 million In reduction in mental
health care for the poor. .-
The budget fights were continuing this week 'as Sen. Mario Diaz-
Balart, R-Miami, announced how the Senate will spend the $1.2 billion,
saved by cutting programs. It won't end, of course; tiuntil later this ses-
sion when a joint 'legislative committee 'decides on a budget to present to
the governor. It's the only constitutionally required action of the lawmak-
ers.
Don't be too confused. The state is expecting $638 million more in
state revenues to spend than it had in this fiscal year. It is the reason
lawmakers can again Increase the budget. from its $3.8 billion record

WES Extends Sympathy To ....
The community of Wewa-
hitchka was saddened last week
when one of its young teenagers,
Wilson Andrews, died from a
drowning accident. His sister,
Becky Andrews is a student in
Pam Sumner's class. We offer our
prayers and support to the be-
reaved family.
Two former WES students,
Jessica and Cody Hayes, lost
their mother last week. We ex-
tend our deepest sympathy to
these young people who have suf-
fered this great loss.,
Countdown To April
Since it is almost income tax
time, I thought I'd offer a few
stress reducers each week to
help. These also help in any job,
school or home. Here are the first
five:
1. Get up 15 minutes earlier in
the morning.
2. Prepare for the morning the


evening before.
3. Don't rely on your memory.
(A short pencil is better
than a long memory.)
4. Don't put things off.
5. Simplify your life.
CTBS Is Upon Us. Mercyl
Beginning next Tuesday,
teachers at WES will begin giving
the CTBS. Parents, this is a very
important test for your child.
Please make sure they get plenty
of rest before coming to school, a
nutritious breakfast, and have
two #2 pencils
We don't want the students
to be nervous about the test, but
we do want them to realize that
this test is important to the stu-
dent, teacher, parent and the dis-


trict.
Early Dismissal Times for April
There will be two early dis-
missals during the first week of
April. First, on April 6th, stu-
dents at WES will be dismissed at
11:50 a.m. for a half-day teacher'
in-service. Then on Friday, April
7th, WES will be dismissed at.;
11:50 a.m. for the beginning of
Easter break. The holidays will
continue through April 16th. We
hope everyone is good and ready
for a break
Solar Hot Dog
Cooker In Fourth Grade
In their study of space and
the solar system, teachers Linda
Lawrence and Bill Carr taught
their students how to make and
cook in a solar hot dog cooker.:
One day last week in the lunch-
room, every kid was also carting,
around their "solar dog". They
looked really good and one kid
said, "it's the best one I ever ate."
Spring Classroom Portraits
Coming On April 3
Classroom portraits will be
taken on Monday, April 3rd. Eve-
ryone likes to look back on class-
room photos years later and re-
member their buddies. Let's all
try to be at school on that date.
School Advisory Council
Met On March 21
Tuesday, March 21, the mem-
bers of the School Advisory Coun-
cil met with Jerry Kelley in the
Media Center. A lot of things were
discussed about upcoming
events, monies, Blueprint 2000,
Technology, etc. We appreciate all
who came to the meeting with
their suggestions.
The Lion, The Witch, And The1
Wardrobe
The T.E.A.M. classes of Sue
McDaniel and Lori Price took


their classes on a field trip to see
the fantasy stage play, The Lion,
The Witch and the Wardrobe. Af-
terwards the classes enjoyed their
pizza and soda at the Veteran's
Park on Cherry Street. It was a
perfect day for an outing
Earth-Friendly Easter Grass
The shredded plastic Easter
grass commonly found on the
market each spring is not bio-
degradable. Fifth and sixth grade
T.E.A.M. students are manufac-
turing'an "Earth-friendly" alterna-
tive made of shredded paper
which deteriorates more readily
when placed in a landfill or can
be recycled effectively. This pro-
ject deals with several aspects of
the elementary curriculum such
as applied mathematics, science,
technology, art and language
arts.
This real-life project will give
students a better understanding
of the path from idea to product.
The grass Is priced at a mere 254.
We would like to encourage you
to purchase the grass from
T.E.A.M. students and support
this educational project. The
grass can be purchased through
'Warrior Wares, the school store,
or in the WES office.
The Adventures Of
Aaron Smiley
The T.E.A.M. class took a
field trip this week. They stopped
at Veteran's Park for a picnic
lunch where they had some ex-
-citement. Fifth grader, Aaron
Smiley jumped from a swing
breaking his left arm. 911 was
called and police and ambulance
arrived shortly. The T.E.A.M. stu-
dents have been studying ca-
reers, but could have done with-
out this demonstrationI We are
happy to say Aaron is mending,
well. -

17 to 21 contestants from six
schools in the Northwest Florida

A field trip has been sched-
uled this week for the eighth
grade class. The students are go-
ing to visit the rock shop in
Blountstown as an extension of
their classroom studies of rocks
and minerals. After their trip to
the rock shop, they will be visit-

Vivaldi, called the Red Priest

This one received its first modem

Bald Eaes Nesting


OnStVincents


Refuge staff completed an ea-
gle nest survey of St. Vincent Is-
land" Friday, March 10, with the
assistance of a contract helicop-'
ter. They discovered a new eagle
nest on the island. Including the
new nest, St. Vincent Island has
five confirmed bald eagle nests. A
suspected sixth nest may turn
out to'be a very large osprey nest.
Two of the gests are in the same
nesting ,territory and the adults.
have let one of them begin to de-
teriorate. The staff located four
active nests; two nests with two
eaglets each and two with one
eaglet each,, during the survey.
Hopefully, all six eaglets will sur-
vive to flight age. Their ages vary,
but they should begin flying in
late March through early May. In
1989, three nests produced five
eaglets, on St. Vincent Island
This year will set a record for eag-
let production If all six eaglets
fledge. Four active nests in one
season also sets a refuge record.
During the flight, staff also
checked one mainland nest along
St. Vincent Sound, They discov-
ered that 'nest late in the season
last year. Although they observed
adult eagles near the nest this
year and last year, no nesting has
been confirmed. During Friday's
flight a great-homed owl was in
the nest. They checked two other
areas, one near'Apalachicola and
one near Port St. Joe, where
adult eagles/ have been frequent-
ing, but found no eagles or nests..
In a related story, an adult
bald eagle, found injured on St.
Vincent Island in October 1992,,
was finally released back into the
wild. Refuge Operations Specialist
Randy Cordray discovered the ea-
gle with a broken wing and foot.
The refuge staff transported the
eagle to Betsy Knight at the Big
Bend Wildlife Sanctuary in

the eagle. She transported the ea-

of extensive surgery and rehabili-
tation to get the eagle in good
condition for release.

to name the two (2) private roads owned by

ular to Highway 71 in Honeyville shall be
named Blake Lane and.the road parallel to
Highway 71 be named Grant Lane. Com-
missioner Traylor seconded the motion.
Chief Administrator Butler stated that
there is not a Blake Lane or Grant Lane
within Gulf County. After discussion, the,
motion passed '4-1 (Commissioner Peters
opposed).

tion and the motion passed unanimously.
It was noted that this casement would al-
low Mr. Morris to sell his property and that
all expenses Incurred, regarding the ease-
ment, would be paid for by Mr. Morris.
