Started

Two Discrimination
Suits Are Filed
The School Board has tenta-
tively set the ball rolling to get the
job of renovation initiated on the
Port St. Joe Elementary School,
signing up'an architect to do de-
sign work and selling bonds to fi-
nance the project.
Attorney Lisa Jones told the
board at its meeting Tuesday that
the bond sale was progressing to
the point where the money was
going to be available to them in
four to six weeks. 'The bond at-
torneys assure us of this," Jones
remarked.
In the meantime the board is
trying to nail down the language
under which they will formally
employ the architect, Collins and
Associates of Panama City, to do
the design work.
School Board Administrative
Assistant Temple Watson advised
the' board that Mr. Collins is
wanting a deposit up front of
$25,000. 'We don't have the
$25,000 until the bond money
comes in and so we're attempting
to get him to accept assurance of
the payment on or before May 1,
when we get the bond money," he
said, "as well as some minor con-,
tract changes we're recommend-
ing. Until we sign the contract,
Collins and Associates is hot offi-
cially our architect," he contin-
ued.
In the meantime, attorney
Jones pointed out that the bonds
will be made available to local
buyers, if they're interested in
purchasing them, in $5,000 in-
crements,
SUITS TILED.
The board's attorney, Charles
Costin, officially advised the body
that they are facing two suits
charging them with discrimina-
tion for failure to employ the de-
fendants.
'They were on my desk after I
returned from vacation," Costin'
remarked.
The two.suits are asking for
damages totaling $500,000 to
$600,000 each.
The two suits have been filed
in U.S. District Court for the
northern district of Florida in
Panama City. The defendants are
listed as Cora Luarn McNair-
Curtis on one suit' and Thomas
Lewis Curtis on the other. Both
gave an Orlando address.
OTHER BUSINESS
in other items of business re-
solved by the board, they:
Allowed welding instructor
Tommy Knox an extra four days
off to take care of his County
Commission duties in case it was
needed. The time off is to be at
the discretion of the Superinten-
dent.
Agreed to take under ad-
visement, construction of a dress-
ing/rest room facility at the Port
@ St. Joe track facilities.

Mexico Beach
Receives Grant to
Revitalize Beach
The City of Mexico Beach has
received a grant to revitalize the
beaches, called the Hurricane
Opal Post-Storm Beach and Dune
Recovery Project. This grant was
approved and returned yesterday
to City Administrator, John McIn-
nis. The revitalization project will
include the entire beach area
from the Gulf county line to the
western city limits.
The revitalization grant totals
over $286,000, with $66,600 des-
ignated for sand fencing to be
completed by the city and
$219,780 to be used for the
planting of sea oats by the state.
The sand fencing purpose is to
create a down draft and to en-
courage new dune structure. The
sea oats will grow and develop
root structure to stabilize the
dunes.
Also, the berm developed af-
ter Opal by the city, will assist in
protecting the beach against fu-
ture storms and also promote
the further development of sand
dunes. A berm provides a buffer
between the water line and prop-
erty limiting disintegration.

It's Happening


Work Was Finally Started
Monday on Reid Avenue
Revitalization Project
It's happening After years of seeking funds, studying, plan-
ning, and designing, Royal American Construction Company
(Panama City) began work on the $900,000 Downtown Revitali-
zation Project on Reid Avenue.
George Douglas (Project Manager), said he expects the work
to take 2 1/2 to 3 months to complete. The bulk of the project
should be complete within about two months while landscaping
and other final beautification, trimmings will take place during,
the latter stages.
During that first two month period though, the sidewalks and
street along Reid will be demolished and replaced with all new
cement and asphalt and a new stormwater drainage system will
be added to boot.
Work started Monday on the north end of Reid, excavating
along the roadside prior to beginning the installation of the
stormwater drainage pipe and pouring new sidewalks and curbs.
Douglas said every effort would be made by the contractor to
create as little impact as possible on downtown merchants as the
project proceeds. He said merchants would be notified ahead of
time when work would be taking place in front of their store-
fronts as they move along from First.Street to Highway 71,

CityAuthorizes Park Work for Spring


Discussion of Several Other Matters
Including Loss of Jobs in Community


The Port St. Joe City,
Commission breezed through a
relatively light agenda Tuesday
evening as they hashed out a few
variance requests and problems,
spoke about a few projects and
problems In preparation for the
upcoming little league season,
and briefly discussed local loss of
Jobs due to cutbacks at St Joe
Woodlands Division and St.
Joseph Telecommunications.
Recreation Director Benny
Roberts updated the board on
construction progress of the new
girl's softball field being con-
structed as a part of the youth
baseball and softball complex on
Tenth Street.
He advised the commission
that the fence contractor had.
inadvertently left one of the sup-..
port pipe, required by the bid, off
of the nearly completed field but
that he was taking care of that as
well as several other change
orders on the project.
Roberts also requested from
the board that he be allowed to
get the fence contractor to fix.sev-
eral other fence problems around
the complex. He further asked'the
board to approve the installation
of:an 18' backstop around the
pony league field near the high
school baseball field. Gulf County
Commissioner Warren Yeager
offered to pay, for the backstop
from his portion of county parks
and recreation funds.
The board unanimously
approved the change orders and
backstop construction.
Roberts was also given the go
;ahead to close off access to the
softball field behind Port St Joe
High School to control ticket sales'
for high school girls' softball
games and other pay activities at

Loss of Jobs
Mayor Pate initiated a conver-
sation among the board concern-
ing the loss of approximately 40
jobs in Gulf County with the shut
down of a portion of St. Joe's
Woodland Division and cutbacks
by St. Joseph Telecommuni-
cations.
As Commissioner Charles
Tharpe pointed out during the
discussion, "This has put the peo-
ple in the city (Port St. Joe) in
shock."
S- The board jointly expressed
their concern for those who had
lost their jobs and surprise at the
severity of the move by the com-
panies.
SIt was stated that approxi-
mately 35 woodland workers
would lose their jobs and six
phone company employees had
been given their notices of termi-
nation.
Variances
The board granted a variance
to Arizona Chemical to temporari-
ly set up some modular office
space at the plant.
They also granted Cecil Pettis
permission to advertise for a one
foot variance to construct a cov-
ered drive next to his home on
Marvin Avenue.
Commissioner Johnny Linton
brought to the board's attention a
building that was erected consid-
erably over the city's setback
lines. After discussion Mayor Pate
asked Police Chief Bucky Richter,
to get with the County Building
SInspector Richard Combs and see
if they can take care of the prob-
lem.
In Other Business
*Commissioner Tharpe told
the* board that the county had
agreed to install street lights
along Garrison Avenue near Ward
Ridge.
*Mayor Pate told the board an
agreement had been worked out
with Roy Robinson to shorten the
overhang of his building (corner of
Third and Reid) and eliminate the
post supports on the sidewalk If
the city would do the work. The
board agreed to the proposal.
*Agreed to abandon an ease-
ment on Lots 15 and 17, Block
1022, Unit #3 Millview Addition
as requested by Paul Gant.


Plans for the project call for
creating a walking mall type
atmosphere along Reid Avenue
complete with landscaping, park
benches,! new lighting and park-
ing.
The Port St Joe Downtown
Redevelopment Committee, Port
St Joe Merchants Association
and the city commission have
held onto the dream for years
before a $675,000 Community
Development Block Grant was
secured to make that dream come
true.
The Port St. Joe City
Commission added another
$225,000 in matching funds and
in-kind work, most of which will
go toward the Installation of a
new stormwater drainage system
in the downtown arca.


least partially,
void of any ac-


ment Company, operator of the
woodlands division, terminated
most of its hourly paid employees
late last week, ending employ-
ment for some 15 men at the lo-
cal barn operated by the compa-
ny. The lay-off was state-wide,
however.
The separation details are
still not official, as both the union
and the company are reportedly
still working on a joint news re-
lease; details of which were not
available at press time Wednes-
day morning.
Clay Smallwood, manager of
the local office of the firm, was
not available for comment.
As soon as some official word
is released or made available con-
cerning the size and effect of the
termination, it will be reported in
The Star.
PHONE COMPANY
At the same time, the new


owners of St. Joseph Telephone
and Telegraph Company were ex-
periencing their own force reduc-
tion.
According to Jim Faison, lo-
cal spokesman for the firm, 11
positions were terminated from
the force of the entire corpora-
tion. "Theseincluded people from
the Port St. Joe, Apalachicola,
Perry and Florala offices," he
said. Most of those terminated
were working out of the Port St.
Joe office.
A total of seven people were
terminated from the local head-
quarters office in the down-sizing
operation.
'The move was made to ena-
ble us to better meet competition
from other firms," Faison said. 'It
has been common practice
among other, larger, firms for the
past couple of years and it's Just
getting here," he continued.

Hats Off

CHANCES ARE THAT THE Port St. Joe High School Tiger
Sharks are playing in the state championship basketball game
today at 1:00 p.m., in Lakeland.
And chances are that if they are in the game, they are likely
to win still another state championship for the school and the
community. Truly this impressive group of athletes has run up
some impressive statistics over the past three or four years. The
school's athletic teams have run up impressive records in all
sports. It's something to be proud of and the reason for the three
Sportsmanship Awards given the school for three years in suc-
cession. Any school in the state of Florida would be proud of
such a record as our athletic teams have provided us.
BUT, WE'RE .CONGRATULATING our basketball team, in
particular, here. They're the ones in the limelight at this particu-
lar time. They are the ones playing for the state championship.
They are the ones who have run up such an impressive record
this year; 29 wins and only three losses.
The coaching staff comes in for their share of accolades, too.
We know, the rules don't let the coaches play in the game. They
just, stand on the sidelines and watch, while the game is going
on: Their activities have been performed before the team ever
takes to the court to meet their opponent of the day.
We are blessed with an exceptional basketball coach. We're
blessed with good coaches in every sport, but especially basket-
ball. Coach. Eppinette hovers over the boys who play on his
teams like a .mother hen. It pays off! His teams do unusual,
warm-up activities. It pays off. His teams play with an intense
passion not exhibited by other teams., It pays off.
FOUR. YEARS IN SUCCESSION in the state final four play-
offs. Two [and possibly the third] ended up in the Sharks taking
all the marbles. That must be some kind of a school record.
We'll be expecting another state championship to come out
of the tournament played yesterday and today, but we'll try not
to be too disappointed if the team fails to make it. The team has
played well all season'long. They have stuck together and played
as a team, not.just a gaggle of individuals. They and their coach,
have not been ones to get rattled when things failed to go their
way. Theyjust plug along, doing what they do best.
They have learned an important lesson in life. You don't ac-
complish anything strictly on your own.



Down-Sizing Comes Home

BUSINESS IN THE 90'S came to several Port St. Joe families
over the past few days, and it wasn't any more .welcome to those
several families than it has been to the hundreds of thousands
who have been the victims of down-sizing all over the nation. It's
just statistics until it happens at home, then it is a catastrophe
of the first water.
Of course, most of those affected received "generous" separa-
tion packages, but the package is a poor substitute for a regular,
substantial, paycheck from a comfortable, dependable, job or po-
sition. There's no substitute for that, except maybe, another
i comfortable, dependable job or position. '" ..-. ,:
WElFEEL FOR iHOiSE who have been so suddendy'rermi-
nated. We suppose no, we know their world has beeh shat-
tered, seemingly beyond repair. Their world has suddenly tum-
bled about them in seeming disarray and their plans for the
future suddenly a shambles. It all seems so dark, now, where
once it seemed so bright and solid. Where once there wasn't a
worry in the world, suddenly the world is full of worries for
them.
A few can take retirement, but a few cannot, either! For the
'most part, they were veteran employees ard citizens of our town.
They have children to care for; homes to pay for; cars, furniture,
boats; yes. even some investments they are paying on. Life was
good and solid. They were building a future they could count on
to take care of them in their old age.
NOW, MANY OF THEM are past the prime production age,
but not yet olderibugh to be put out to pasture by a long sight.
Many will pick up the pieces and find other jobs. Some may even
be better than the ones they were terminated from; Let's all hope
so. But, let's face it; most will not. They will find a new job, no
,doubt, but it won't come equipped with the seniority they had
built up over the ,years. It won't have the built-in retirement,
credits they had-earned ...
It just won't be the same as the job which they were termi-
nated from.


Hunker Down with Kes by Kesley Colbert


"Mad Dog" Slept Here


.



The President of the United-
States has given me cause for
reflection this week-and possible
hope for the future. That's leader-
ship at the highest level
Bobby Brewer and Ricky Hale
used to spend the night at our
house almost every other week-


end from the time we were in the
second grade til about our sopho-
more year in high school. I never
collected one red cent from either
of them We didn't realize back in
those days that you could actual-
ly charge 'em for sleeping over.
And I'm not saying here that we
could 'a got $50,000 a night. But
you do the math-even figuring
the inflation rate for forty years
and factoring in the Consumer
Price Index, the minimum wage
increases, the Dow Jones aver-
ages and the spiraling cost of
campaign re-election buttons ..


. we should 'a gotten some-
thing!
I'm going to have to blame
this one on my Dad. We were Just
kids. He should have written
Mother a memo outlining the
potential funds that could be
raised from such an enterprising
undertaking. The whole thing
could have been handled very dis-
creetly. I mean this is such a good
idea you don't need to share it
with the sitting around crowd"
down at the feed store, and for
certain you ain't about to get up
in church and announce your


intentions. We weren't anywhere
close to as sophisticated or as
versed in "covert operations" as
folks apparently are today-but
we could keep our mouths shut if
there was a buck to be made.
Just think of all the Friday
nights Bobby and Ricky spent in
our back bedroom-and I didn't
get nothing! Well that's not exact-
ly true. I got a busted lip once in
a pillow fight. Now, I know what
you're thinking, it takes a real
wimp to spill blood in a pillov
fight. But the truth is the pillow
only propelled me off the top
bunk-the lip didAi't split until I
hit that oak floor. We quickly,
called a two-minrute time out,1
turned on the lights and wiped up
the evidence. Ricky tried to claim:
victory, but Mom had only told us:
to be quiet twice, there was a lot~
of time left.
I realize now, what a nalve
dummy-a poor, naive dummy-
fell off that bunk bed. The blow to,
the head must have rendered me
senseless for forty years. Not only
should we have been charging fore
the "sleepover", I could have got-
ten extra for the blood. Mother
"hand feathered" every pillow.
That was worth something. And
we could have laid Leon in the
single bed on the other side of the
room and let our "special interest"
guest jump on him from off the
top bunk.
When we were home alone
Leon would bomb us all the time.
He had a blast at it Surely we
could have charged top dollar for
that! My uncle, Slim "Two Timer"
"Hard Rock" "Bugs" "Mad Dog"
"Scarface" Hargraves sleptin that
room right before they shipped
him off to the Huntsville Penal
Farm. I tell you, if the president
would have only gotten the word
to us sooner ........
Ricky could have paid plenty,
his dad was in the oil business.
He ran the Texaco station down at
Trezvant. And Mr. Brewer was
"way up the ladder" in city gov-
ernment. 'Course, I could still get
Sup with both of them, jo it out
how micth[iey w6e 'bitt f en,
they' might' ?bing"tipi thehnight
Mother-made 'em eat the liver :.%.
and the weekends I spent at their
houses.
It could end up being one of
those NAFTA-like reciprocal trade
agreements.
So much for the reflection,
I'm not going to get anything out
of those deadbeats, now to the
future ......... .
Josh is off in college. I just
happen to have an empty bed-
room. For a mere fraction of what
they're raking in at the White
House you can "stay over" with
us. My wife will even throw in a
grilled chicken sandwich. And, if
you want to have a conference'or
a tea or even an international fla-
vor-of-your-choice coffee brunch
-we'll figure something :out.

Unseasonably War Weather Wakens the Wanderlust In Me


WIT'HTHE SUMMER weath-
er we were experiencing the latter
.part of last week, the old "travel
.'somewhere to do a little sight-
seeing" syndrome set: in, hard
and heavy.
I still have half a senior citi-
zens flight coupon left, in which,
'for a set amount, senior citizens
can purchase two flights to any-
where in the United States, round
trip.
I used up half of the coupon
last fall when Frenchie and I went
to Washington state, but I still
have the other half left.
The question is; where to go?
There's any number of places
in these United States where I
haven't been, but some places I
don't especially desire to go. But
the spring-like weather we had
.last weekend started the juices to
flowing. I'd like the next air trip to
be quite a long trip in order to get
my money's worth out of the
flight. There's no use wasting the
-coupon flying to somewhere rela-
tively near-by.


~ ETAOIN SHRDLU


By Wesley Ramsey


I COULD HAVE used the
coupon last weekend and joined a
group from our church which
went to North Carolina on a snow
ski trip.
Of course, I couldn't ski. I
would be safe there. I'd be able to
gracefully bow out of zooming
down hill and maybe falling and
busting my kazoo. I could enjoy
the best of two worlds .. going
on a ski trip with a built-in ex-
cuse for not attempting to get on
the slats.
Those who went had a differ-
ent excuse, but it was every bit as
good as mine. When they arrived,
after a 14-hour drive, they found


temperatures just as warm as
they were here. '
That doesn't lend to very
much show skiing! ,
But then, they had Johnny-
Linton along. Everything couldn't
have been very dull. ,
I'll say this, unequivocally;
the North Carolina ski slopes will,
never 'be the .same after a visit
from a group from Long Avenue
Baptist Church. with Johnny
Lintop included

BUT, AFTER READING the.
papers over the last several
weeks, I have come to the conclu-
sion that the place to go is Wash-


ington, D. C.
And, stay in the Lincoln bed-
room of the White House.
My air travel coupon should
cover a stay in the Lincoln bed-
room except that I hear the bed is"
* .mighty lumpy. The 'Mayor of San'
Francisco testified to the fact the'
other day that, 'The mattress
.must be original, considering all
the'lumps in it'."
It could be that in the Lincoln
days, they forgot to get all the:
cobs out of the corn shucks when
they were making the mattress.
Or maybe there were a few green
bolls left in the cotton which may
have been used to stuff the mat-,
Stress ticking.
I couldn't really say for sure
,Which IS the case. Don't know if
'the mattress in the: Lncoln room
is stuffed with corn shucks, cot-
ton or goose feathers. It could be
a modern one with "independent-
ly wrapped coil springs for full,
bodily comfort." In; which case, it
wouldn't be an authentic Lincoln-


era mattress, destroying some of
the authenticity of the room.
Not only didn't Lincoln sleep
there, I wouldn't be able to sleep
there, either, if the mattress is in-
deed lumpy.

I'D HAVE A HARD time
scraping up the 150,000 clams to
pay the freight of spending a
night in the Lincoln bedroom, if
my flight coupon wouldn't stand
good for a night spent in the
White House.
I hear it costs that much.
I just thought it cost a bundle
to stay in a hotel-the name of
which shall remain unmentiona-
ble-when Frenchie and I went to
Opryland a few years ago.
I, think the government may
be missing a bet here. We could
put a real dent in the national
debt if we would just rent out the
White House, room by room, at
the going rate which has.been es-
tablished by the Clintons. Why,
we would have that sucker paid
off in no time!


Let's see.


Let's see.
$150,000 a night comes to .
..about $53,750,000 a year.
Come to think of it; it may
take a while to pay off the nation-
al debt in that manner. Actually,
it would take longer to pay it off
than it took to.make it!
The Lincoln bedroom thing as
a source of income, would only
amount to pennies'in the over-all
scheme of things;. the monetary
unit Lincoln is famous for.

COME TO THINK of it, old
Bill Clinton may be letting out
rooms in the White House too,
cheap. It's no Howard Johnson,
but the ambiance ought to ac-
count for some difference in the
rates.
I mean, where else can you
get an unencumbered view of th
fountain in the front yard?
The first lady providing room:
service ought to account forl
something, too. There's no tipping.
of the maid required, either.

Bay Committee to

iDiscuss Scallops
,Both Extension of Season and Special
Celebration Here In Port St. Joe
:...The regular meeting of the St. Joe Bay Committee,
s scheduled for next Thursday morning. March 13, will
have scallops as its topic for discussion at its 9:00 a.m.
,,session. Dr. William S. Arnold, Ph.D., Florida Marine Re-
search Institute and William H. Tehan, Florida Marine
,Fisheries Commission, will both be featured information
Sources at the March 13 meeting to discuss the scallop
population of the bay and its condition.
Currently, St. Joe Bay is one of only two bays in Flor-
ida where the taking of scallops is allowed. The season is
currently only two months long in the bay, with move-
ments which are in motion to have this season extended
by as much as a month.
The season now runs from July 1 to August 30. The
Florida Marine Fisheries Commission has held the first
of two public hearings preparatory to also opening the
season for a 10-day period tacked onto the August 30
closing date. The first of the two hearings was conducted
recently at the commission's meeting which was held in
Crystal River. The second hearing, before the matter is
introduced to the cabinet for approval or rejection, is
scheduled for April 11 at Key Largo.
The Gulf County Commission passed a resolution re-
questing a 30-day extension of the season several
months ago which prompted MFC's response on the issue
and ultimate suggestion of a 10-day extension of the sea-
son.
A subcommittee is being formed, locally, to lay plans
for the upcoming "St. Joe Bay Scallop Day" to be held in
August. The subcommittee will meet immediately after
the regular meeting. All persons interested in participat-
Sing are welcome to attend both sessions.
Dr. Bob King, chairman of the St. Joe Bay Commit-
tee, said, "St. Joseph Bay has one of, if not the finest,
scallop populations In the country."


Proud of the Tiger Sharks


Dear Mr. Ramsey,
Well, as you know the Port St.
6Joe Tiger Sharks are headed to
the State Championship, again. I
find this fact very amusing. This
was our year to rebuild. That was
stated to me by several people,
coaches and even reported in the
news, so, I figured it must be true
guess the people that stated that
St. Joe would have a rebuilding
year forgot to tell Coach Eppinette
and Coach Parker. I. guess the
team cdin't know it either.
f,;Quite honestly our first seven
* games of the* season-;we were
rebuilding. We had already suf-
fered two losses and some of our
wins were by,luck. So I couldn't
understand why Coach Eppinette
would take the team to
Clearwater to play in the Time
Warner invitational. These games
were going to be televised. We
were rebuilding! But we packed

I like to think of this plan as

Hey listen, for fifty grand we
don't have to know you. We
adhere to the old Biblical axiom
he was a stranger among us-
and we took him in.

upand went
I will never forget the attitude
of the people in Clearwater. They
were nice people, but they won-
dered, "Where are your Tall'
guys?" .1 was asked. Someone
wanted to know how come our
guys did that quick feet thing.
They really laughed about that.
One person even wanted to know
why our coaches didn't scream or
throw things. Well, Mr. Ramsey as
Syou know we won that first game.
i ddidn't4feel. like we played:.good;
but we won., After all, I told
myself, this team Is rebuilding.
The next night, once again
the people laughed when we did
quick feet. We had a rough start,
one would expect that with a team
that Is rebuilding, but something
happened in the second half of
that'game.., .
St. Joe had been trailing most
of the game, but: you could tell
that the tide was turning. One of
the Clearwater fans yelled at me
and said, "Do you thinkyou are
going to win this game?" Well,
Tyson Pittman made the shot that
put us into the Ist overtime. I
yelled back at the fan. "Never turn
your back on a Shark". With'that
remark St.' Joe. entered -a 2nd
overtime and won the game.
The Tigeri Sharks came out
the next night to play the host
team. This time however there
was no laughter during quick feet.
St. Joe beat Clearwater. An assis-
tant coach from Clearwater made
the statement to me,"Your team
does not Rebuild theyjust
Reloadll" Well, there it was, this
was not a rebuilding year, it was a
reloading year. We have been
ranked number one in the state
ever since.
To our team I would like to

St. Joseph Railroad Wheels Commemorated by Historical Society


Thd St. Joseph Historical
Society has' placed a permanent
marker by the :second set of
wheels used on the old St Joseph
Railroad. The wheels, which were
raised on August 14, 1980, by
Herman Jones with the assis-
tance of Allen.McCulley using his
boat the Boston Lady, have been

County Public Library since the
mid 1980's.

between two of the pilings of the
wharf that was- constructed to
carry train loads of cotton to the

pany and they soon went into
bankruptcy. On September 14,
1841, a hurricane destroyed por'
tions of the wharf. It is his opinion'
that the hurricane caused the
wheels to end up on the bay bot-
tom and since they were no longer
needed by the bankrupt railroad
company, no attempts were made
to raise them.
SBecause of their rarity and
historical value, the wheels were
given to the St. Joseph Historical
Society. The society acquired, the
necessary permission from the
Florida Division of Archives and.
History to raise them. since legal-:
ly.the wheels belonged to the
State of Florida. Arrangements
iere made with Jake Belin and
Robert Nedley for St. Joe Paper
Company to preserve the wheels.
SMr. Jones expressed his grat-
itude to Allen M cCul ley for risking
his small shrimp boat in a bad
squall on their first attempt to
raise the wheels. On the next
attempt, the 600-700 pound
wheels strained the lifting capa-
bilities of the block and tackle to
their maximum before the wheels,
broke free from the bay floor.
The first set of train wheels:
used on the old St. Joseph
Railroad are on display In front of
the Constitution Museum. They
were raised in 1960.

This weekend Buford. and
Ruth Griffin celebrate their 50th
wedding anniversary. The story of
their lives mirrors the times in
whichhih they were raised, the
growth of Port St. Joe, and the
perpetuation of the American
dream.
Ruth was the youngest of 10
girls; Buford the first born son in
a family of nine children. Both of
their fathers died at an early age
and both experienced the hard-
ship of growing up in the depres-
sion without a father.
When Buford Griffin first laid
eyes on Ruth in 1943, he knew
she was the one. Though they
had grown up within ten miles of
each other, they had never met.
One day Buford's brother, J.C.,
came to call on Ruth, bringing
SBuford along. Returning home
that night, Buford confided his
feelings to J.C. From then on, it
was Buford and Ruthie.
World War II intervened and
Buford was sent to Germany.
Shortly after returning he started
work at the St. Joe Paper Compa-
ny. .On March 10, 1947, they
drove to Dothan, Alabama in Bu-
ford's "new" pre-war '41 Chevrolet
to be married.
Both Ruth and Buford know
what it means to work hard. In
1980, when Buford retired from
the St, Joe Paper, Company, he
had been there 34 years. Most re-
cently, Ruth was employed by St.
Joseph Telephone Company, re-
tiring in 1993 after 28 years.
It is their faith that keeps
Ruth and: Buford Griffin so cen-
tered, so real. Ruth and Buford
belong to Oak Grove Assembly of
God Church.
In retirement Ruth and Bu-
ford have traveled in their motor-
home exploring the world far be-
yond the reach of Port St. Joe.
They are children of the depres-
sion era, of world wars and the
work ethic.. They represent the
backbone of Port St. Joe.
The Griffins' two daughters,
Wyvonne Pickett and Juanise Wil-
liams, along with grandchildren.
John Joseph (J.J.) Hattaway and
Case Juanise Williams cordially
invite you to come join them in
the celebration of their parents'
50th wedding, anniversary. The
celebration will be held on March
9 at the home of Buford and Ruth


Griffin, at 1803 Marvin Avenue,
Port St. Joe, between the hours of
2:00 and 4:00 p.m.
No invitations are being sent-


but all friends and relatives are
invited to attend. Let your "pres-
ence" be your "present." No gifts,
please.


ST JOE NATURAL GAS COMPANY, INC.
March 3, 1997
St. Joe Gas has filed a petition with the Florida Public Service
Commission ("FPSC") to restructure its rates for natural gas ser-
vice. The overall increase to an average customer is outlined
below. The restructured rates will be phased in over a two year
period. Assuming the 1996 average cost of gas, the percent
change is listed at the bottom of the outline.
In setting utility rates, the FPSC uses a "cost of service" approach
where the rates for each class of customer (residential, commer-
cial) are set at or near the actual cost to serve. Rates are adjusted
every time a utility seeks a'rate increase. Most utilities have rate
cases every two or three years. Since St.Joe Gas has never filed a
rate case, the current rates have been in effect since 1966 when
the FPSC assumed jurisdiction over St Joe Natural Gas Company.
In the early 1970's St. Joe Gas negotiated industrial rates at cur-
rent market levels Which were above other customer rates. This
allowed the residential and commercial rates to remain unchanged
while the the negotiated industrial rates subsidized all other exist-
ing rate classes. Since the 1990 deregulation of natural gas prices
at the wellhead, the forces of competition have caused utilities .to
charge customers closer to the actual "cost'of service". Large
industrial users now are demanding more cost based rates and are
no longer willing to subsidize other customers.

I Views On Dental healthh

FRANK D. MAY, D.M.D.


Checking For


TMJ Syndrome


Aside from checking the
teeth and gums during a rou-
tine examination, many den-
tists also examine the joints
on each side near the ears.
This is to determine whether
or not you have temporo-
mandibular joint dysfunction
(TMJ Syndrome for short) and
whether it requires treatment.
The dentist will check for
popping or clicking when you
open and close your mouth.
He will also try to correlate,
that with any history of pain or
limited ability in mouth open-
ing. He will feel. the chewing
muscles to see if there is any
tenderness and ask whether
you have many headaches,


stiff neck, or problems with
the chewing muscles or joints,
that you have noticed.
Such questions are impor-
tant, many cases of TMJ pain
are related to disharmonies in
the bite (the way the teeth
meet and chew), but there are
a number of other possible
causes. The dentist will have
to put all this information
together to know how to treat
you if it's needed.

ly announced a plan to dedicate
Florida lottery proceeds to fund a
new postsecondary scholarship,
program to enable an additional
11,596 high school students who
graduate with a 3.0 grade point
average or better to continue
their education or vocational
S training at Florida institutions.
Commissioner Brogan is rec-
ommending that approximately,
$79 million in lottery proceeds be
used to fund the state's three
merit scholarship programs.
These are the Undergraduate
Scholars Program, the Gold Seal
Endorsement Scholarship for vo-
cational education, as well as the
new postsecondary tuition schol-
arship.
The Florida lottery is expect-
ed to generate approximately.
$800 million in funding for all ed-


scholarship programs in the fall
of 1997.
The programs would be the
first priority to directing lottery
proceeds to public schools, com-
munity colleges, universities and
other needs. Lottery revenue di-
rected to the scholarship pro-
grams from discretionary school
district lottery funds will be re-
placed with general revenue dol-
lars. The proposal would provide
deserving students with expand-
ed opportunities to acquire higher
education or post-secondary vo-
cational/technical training. It
would ensure that a portion of
the Florida lottery is used as an
educational enhancement to di-
rectly benefit Florida students. In
addition, it would act as an in-
centive toward higher students
achievement for Florida students


SGulf Cattle Producers

Fund Recipe Collectionl


It's true: bedf can be a part of
a heart-healthyFdiet. That's good
news for today's families that love
the taste of beef, and one of the
reasons the Gulf County: cattle
producers have helped fund a
new beef recipe collection that
meets American Heart Associa-
tion (AHA) guidelines. The recipes
are now available in Florida
supermarkets and nationwide.
Lean 'N Easy with. Beef
recipes are being showcased at.
the meat case in more than
!5,000 supermarkets during
American Heart: Month in
,; : Februaiy.. The recipes feature a
collection of :four lean and easy-:
beefidishes that have less than10 ,
:'grams of fat: per serving; Also.
included are easy-to-follow nutri-
tion tips and suggestions for buy-
ing beef and keeping beef lean
when cooking. .
"A heart-healthy meal comes
down to, selection, preparation
and quantity of whatever food you
choose," says Piolly Golden,
Executive Director of the Florida
BeefCouncil. "Beef is no excep-
tion." Golden points out, for
leekampler 'that USDA nuttrition
data show that there are seven
cuts of lean beef that fall between
the skinless, chicken breast and
skinless chicken thigh in terms of
total fat content.
A nutrient dense food, beef is
also a good source of essential
nutrients like protein, B-vitamins,
zinc and iron, according to
Golden. In fact, your body
absorbs more iron from beef than
from vegetables.
"Consumers can really take
heart when it comes to eating
beef," says Golderi. "As Lean 'N
Easy with.Beef demonstrates,
beef meals have changed with the
times and can be considered part
of a heart-healthy diet."
Consumers will see the recog-
nizable AHA logo on -the Lean 'N
Easy with Beef recipe sheets. The
beef Industry worked with the
AHA guidelines in preparing
heart-healthy meals through the
meal idea centers..
The Lean 'N Easy nutrition
communications program Is one
example of the beef industry's
ongoing initiative to establish
partnerships with health organi-
zations to communicate beefs
role in a healthy diet to con-

Recognizing the danger pre-

tive lighting equipment In addi-
tion, attention will be directed to

better, excluding Level 1 courses,

Joined by key sponsors of the
proposal Sen. Sullivan (R-
Seminole) and Rep. Pruitt (R-Port
St. Lucie) in a classroom with
11th graders at Leon High
School, Commissioner Brogan an-:
nounced the plan to fund the
state's three merit-based scholar- ,
ship programs with lottery pro-
ceeds. Sen. Sullivan is, the key
sponsor of the legislation in the
Senate, with Rep. Pruitt sponsor-
ing the effort in the House of Rep-,.
resentatives.
"I welcome the opportunity to
examine the state of Florida's
scholarship programs and to
make access to education a top ;
priority," Sen. Sullivan said.
"This legislation will go a longI
way in meeting our original prom-
ise and commitment to the people
of Florida," Rep. Pruitt said. "This
will' ensure that the lottery dollars
go directly to our children, for the


scholarship program this fall,
based on their ~PA status. Total
cost of the new scholarship pro-
gram is estimated at $12,934,178
to cover tuition and fees for 30
credit hours for students entering
programs In the fall of 1997.
This is the second year Com-
missioner Brogan has recom-
mended a proposal to fund post-
secondary scholarships from
lottery proceeds. In the fall of
1995. Commissioner Brogan and
key lawmakers annoUnced the
Lottery Restoration Act, which in-
cluded the creation of the post-
seconidary scholarships for high
school students, as well as direct-
ing, lottery dollars to prekinder-
garten programs and Infrastruc-
ture enhancement for public
schools. The proposal also includ-
.d., a plan to replace lottery dol-
lars directed to these programs
with an equal amount of general
revenue dollars to fund school op-
erations.
The 1996 Legislative-passed a
measure creating the postsecon-
dary tuition scholarship, program
and directed the Florida Depart-
ment of Education to study state
scholarship and tuition programs
prior to 'awarding .the.- scholar-
ships for 1997-98.

that lottery dollars are at work for

Inservice Report .
Four of our teachers recently
returned from a long, but exciting'
trip to the annual FETC
Convention in Orlando. We were
addressed by Ray Bradbury and
Frank Brogan. Both men spoke of
different ways in which we as
teachers impact our students and
direct and guide their future.
I was most impressed with
the way in which technology will
guide us in the classroom and
give us the opportunity to reach
all the children, not just a few.
While in Orlando, Mrs. Arnold,
Mrs. Weston, Mrs. Howell and
myself enjoyed speaking to the
vendors and previewing their lat-
est software and new computers.
Many of them were generous
enough to give us copies and lots
of free materials which we
brought back to our classrooms.
Also, we were able to listen to
various speakers in pull-out ses-
sions on new ideas and ways in
which to improve 'our teaching
styles. I, like my peers;- was
impressed and excited to try all
these new ideas out.

Inservice
Teachers at WES had two

from all accounts, really learned a
lot. Thursday, a group from both
Port St. Joe and Wewa traveled to
Blountstown to look at their writ-

studied the Sunshine Standards
and the F-CAT.

Kindergarten teachers Connie

"Nanny Goats Gruff" on Friday,
March 21 at the WES Commons.
This is a repeat of their perfor-

promise you there are still people


singing about, "Nanny, and
Fanny, and Big Bertha Lee!"
Quite A Fair
On February 20, little ones
from all around the county met in
St. Joe for a health fair. Greeting
them was Smokey the Bear,
clowns, and a host of health pro-
fessionals offering them pam-
phlets, balloons, shoe strings, etc.
in a goodie bag. Sponsored by
HRS, this was a great success.
Log Cabins Revisited
Rebecca Birmingham's fifth
graders, in a study of the
American frontier, constructed
some log cabins out of cardboard,
straws, and a lot of imagination.
These group projects are now on
display in the Media Center and
the public is cordially invited to
stop by and browse. One or two
look like they came from Cade's
Cove, Tennessee.

. Add a Touch of Color to Your Landscape

Annual Flowering Plants Serve As An Accent To The Landscape


Annual flowering plants can
provide that necessary touch of
color to an often drab landscape.
They are best displayed as bor-
ders along walkways, fences, and
shrub beds. Annuals planted in
containers can add a splash of
color to a porch, deck, or patio
.area.
Annuals should serve as an
accent to the landscape, not a
dominant feature in the setting.
Those used in front of the home
should harmonize with the set-.
ting, and colors should blend with
each other and with the home.
Large elaborate annual displays


plans to use the results is not
completely clear, so most school
personnel are holding their
breath, hoping their school does
as well as most in the state.
Eighth and tenth graders are the
primary targets, and, reading com-
prehension and math are the two
t areas to be measured. Encourage
your student to do his/her best.
Speaking of doing your best,
those Lady Gators waded through
four games Saturday to win first
place.in the small school division
of the Mosley North Florida
Invitational Tdurnament. Now
they're thinking' of requesting
their own trophy case to store
their awards Amiaida Davis won
the most valuable player' award.
Great effort, ladies.
The track team has started its
season short handed, with both
Luke Taunton and Holly Atkins
unable to run due to -injuries. I
believe Holly is competing in the
discus and shot events, scoring
points where she can, but Luke
will be out all season, forcing
some shake-ups in events in
which we consistently scored well
last year. Coach Bidwell has his


are usually too distracting for this
area and are best used in the
backyard.
When selecting annuals for
beds or borders, it is best to limit
the choice to as few kinds as pos-
sible. Combinations of many
flower colors and plant forms can
distract from the overall appear-
ance for the display. Attractive
flower beds can be created by
using one plant species.
Flower beds should be pre-
pared before plants are pur-
chased. Allowing plants to remain
in their original containers for
prolonged periods after purchase


work cut out if the Gators are to
be contenders again this year.
At least two of our
weightlifters have already quali-
fied for the state tournament. It's
the only sport we have in which a
student can earn the right to go to
state in the very first contest of.
the year. Danny Voyles and Cody
Calhoun will represent us this
year. Maybe some others will join
them before the season ends.
Coach Wayne Flowers will proba-
bly be hunting donations to help
defray expenses.
Congratulations to Carol
Cathey of Port St. Joe High School
for being selected "Gulf County:
Teacher of the Year", and we also
want to wish the Sharks luck in
the State tournament at
Lakeland. By the time you read
this, we'll know if they won the 3A
title!
Our little program to try and'
make seventh and eighth graders
aware of key words that promote
good character is still ongoing
with good comment being heard
from all. Thanks to our volunteer
speakers for their help!

deep several weeks before plant-
ing. Florida's sandy soils have
very low capacities for holding
nutrients and water. Incorpora-
tion of two to three inches of
organic matter into planting beds
will increase the nutrients and
water retention of these soils.
Organic materials such as com-
post or peat should be thoroughly
mixed into the soil.
Garden soils, especially in
recently developed areas, are fre-
quently infertile. Flower beds
should be fertilized prior to plant-
ing or at planting time and
repeated on a monthly basis.
Apply 8-8-8 or a similar complete
fertilizer at the rate of two pounds
per 100 square feet of bed area.
Controlled release .fertilizers
are ideal for Florida's sandy soils.
Plants usually grow much better
with a continuous nutrient sup-
ply and labor is reduced since
controlled release fertilizer appli-
cation frequency is less than for
rapid release fertilizers.
Controlled release fertilizers can
be incorporated uniformly
throughout the soil before plant-
ing and applied on the soil sur-
face of established planting.
Water the plants after plant-
ing and water daily until the
plants have become established.
:Water the plants ."as needed"
thereafter.
: Weeds should be controlled
by mulching and hand weeding.
Mulching material should not
,come in contact with plant stems.
The high moisture environment
created by mulch increases the
chances of stem rot which can
result in plant death.
Annual flowers require more
maintenance than most other
landscape plants.. However, their
brilliant colors add an atmos-
phere of warmth and life to land-
scape which more than justifies
the additUonal maintenance.

This column is provided as a service of the Gulf County Guidance Clinic, Inc., a professional counseling
and mental health center. It s not intended to replace psychological counseling or treatment'services.


Dear Counselor:
A couple ,of days ago, my
daughter came home from a date
with a black eye. She has not
talked to me about it. I saw some-
thing on t.v. about date rape.
Should I be worried about this?
Signed,
Mother of a Teenager
Dear Mother:
The fact that your daughter is
unwilling to talk about her eye
makes it quite possible that some-
thing serious happened on her
date. Date rape is unfortunately a
very common occurrence.
Please do try to talk with her
about this. She will be feeling both
humiliated and emotionally
bruised and, therefore, unwilling
to share what went on. Your
daughter could also be concerned
about the consequences if she
reveals what occurred.
Frequently, some kind of
physical force or threat is used to
intimidate the victim to remain
silent. You can ask her directly
about her eye or how things went
on her last date. If she will not
talk with 'you, encourage her to
talk with an adult she feels com-
fortable with. The best defense is


constant and consistent open
communication.
If she or you need further
assistance or help with under-
standing this, there is a 24-hour
Rape Crisis Line run by the
Salvation Army in Panama City.
Its number is 763-0706. Encour-
age your daughter to call this
number if she is uncomfortable
talking to anyone else. Their ser-
vice is professional and confiden-
tial.
The Gulf County Guidance
Clinic also has counselors avail-
able for crisis as well as outpa-
tient treatment. You can access
us by calling 227-1145. Let us
know if we can help.
Signed,
Barbara Hoffman
Counselor
Note: Please address your ques-
tions and comments to:
Dear Counselor, 311 Williams
Avenue, Port St. Joe, FL 32456.
Names and addresses are option-
al and will remain confidential.

Cancer

Activities


Men's Prostate Test

In Month Of April





the Am.ericanCancer society has

in south Gulf County and the
amot took only 24 members to
raise $14,000 in last year's can- ,
cer drive, the Rotary Club learned
last Thursday. That's how many
members the Gulf County Unit of
the American Cancer Society has
in south Gulf County and the
amount of money they raised to
defeat this killer of men and
women.
But, how are these dollars
used? Do the people of Gulf
County, benefit directly from any
of these collected funds? ,
Frankle Guy, area supervisor
of the society told the club mem-
bers that 17% of funds raised
here are spent providing services
for cancer victims. These services
include providing funds for travel-
to and from treatment centers,
providing prostheses such, as
wigs, bras, nutritional 'supple-
ments, durable medical equip-
ment, housing for out of town
treatment, and pain medication
assistance.
And, of course, the society
provided a support group for Just
about every type of disfiguring or
disabling cancer imaginable.
A breakdown of what hap-
pens with the remainder of the
funds raised is as follows; 25% to
finance research,. 18% to finance
early detection methods, and 20%
finances fund-raising activities.
These are in addition to the fi-
nancing of local patients' assis-
tance.
PROSTATE CLINIC
Part of the' "early detection"
funds are spent locally, too.
For instance, the society is
participating in a men's prostate
cancer early detection activity
during the month of April with
the Gulf County Health Depart-
ment. For $10.00, men can have
an early detection blood test per-
formed during the month.
S Breast cancer counselling is
provided for the women, also.
A toll-free information num-
ber is provided for anyone desir-
ing any sort of cancer informa-
tion, from the ;:meaning of
suspected warning signals to
where to receive treatment to the
location of the nearest support
group, can be obtained.

This number is 1-800-828-
S 2345.

Phyllis Moore spoke briefly to
the Rotarians, in which she de-
scribed the main fund-raising
project last year as the Walk for
Life activity. She also thanked the
many who participated in the var-
ious activities the local society
Sponsored last year.

Guests of the club were Bob
Bolduc of Garden City, "Mich.,.
and JimQuirkell of York. Pa.

volumes of Pioneers of Wiregrass

These books, previously
owned by Flora M. Maddox, a for-

to the library in her memory
through the DAR chapter by her
children. Mrs. Maddox was an
avid genealogical researcher and
enjoyed these volumes which are
among the best for researchers
whose ancestors migrated from
South Carolina to southern
Georgia and Al-bama and north-
ern Florida.
The library is very fortunate
to have these volumes which will
be available to all genealogists
who do research in the library.
