Short Agenda for Wewa Commission

Hear City Manager's Report; Make Rules for Tank Cleaners


It was a short agenda which
faced the Wewahitchka City Com-
mission Monday evening. One
matter involved only a report to
the board by City Manager Don
Minchew.
Minchew reported that the
ongoing project, which involves
the moving of the T-ball field from.
its former location, downtown, to
the T. L. James recreation com-
plex, is nearing completion. The
city manager reported, "the new
ball field should be ready to play
!on in about three weeks."
S DUMPING IN CITY SEWER
SGulf County's chief Health


Officer, Doug Kent, approached
the city commission to request
that the board allow firms which
clean septic tanks to dump their
waste into the city's system, "to
get good, safe disposal of the ef-
fluent from their operation," Kent
said.
The board agreed to allow
this practice but agreed it
shouldn't be allowed, at no cost.
They hammered out a fee of
$30.00 per dump, with the city
requiring the firms to, first, go to
City Manager Minchew to secure
a permit each time they dump, so


the city would have some control
over the activity.
TO PURCHASE VAN '
The board agreed to purchase
a new van and a trailer for use in
hauling prison inmates around
the city from Job to job. The in-
mate labor is furnished at no cost
to the city, but it is the city's re-
sponsibility to transport them to
and from the prison and around
the city to the job they happen to
be working on.
The' city will receive bids for
the vehicle purchase.


County Commissioner War-
ren Yeager arranged a special
meeting last Friday with Eglin Air
Force Base officials to discuss the
future of the Cape San Bias
Lighthouse and surrounding
property. Col. Mike Newberry
headed a team of Eglin officials to
review the county's request to ac-
quire the property, presently per-
mitted to the U.S. Coast Guard
by the United States Government.
There was not :a representative
from the U.S. Coast Guard
present.
The primary purpose of the
meeting was needs assessment of
the community and to compare
the needs of Eglin Air Force Base,
which owns 520 acres of property,
.to the east of the lighthouse area.
.Eglin Air Force Base is inter-
ested in acquiring the land so it
could be a buffer zone' for missile
testing and other missions that
occur on the Air Force property.
The lighthouse and surrounding
property would still act as a buf-
fer zone and would need proper
clearance during possible hazard-
ous operations no matter who
had permit to the land.
Commissioner Yeager ex-
pressed the need for additional
access to Cape San Bias beach,
as well as the importance of pre-
.serving Gulf county's history.
,kYeager explained that the county
'and state own only two parcels of
Cape San Blas land that provide
:accessibility to seven miles of
beach front and additional dirt
roads that have provided access
in the past have been blocked.
"The lighthouse property would
be an ideal location to provide the
public with a beach 'access area,
as well as a historical landmark
to visit," he said.

Col. Newberry mentioned two
requests that were submitted by


acquiring Property For
'or Its Missile Range
Gulf county for use of the proper-
ty. Gulf County Commissioners
submitted a request, as well as
Allen Cox on behalf of the local
Boy Scouts to use the keepers'
homes as a hut.
Layman Wilkinson, President
of the Historical Society, ex-
pressed concern for preservation
of the two keepers' homes and
the lighthouse no matter who ac-
qui-ed the land. Laura Kraimmer-
er, from the Bureau of Historic
Preservation, expressed that this
property is maintained under the
Federal Preservation Act so
whoever owns it has strict restric-
tions to what can occur on the
property.
Eglin officials proposed Gulf
County outline a specific detailed
request for the lighthouse and
property to speed -up the process
of possible possession of the
present Coast Guard property.
Congressman Allen Boyd, Mayor
Frank Pate and members of the
Historical Society are supportive
and actively assisting Gulf
County in their request to acquire
the Cape San Bias lighthouse,
keepers' homes and surrounding
property.

I,


During Tuesday evening's
regularly scheduled county com-
mission meeting, board chairman
Nathan Peters, Jr. told the board
that he had heard rumors that
the Gulf Correctional Institute
annex opening, scheduled for
June 1, might be postponed by
the Florida Department of
Corrections.
The opening of the GCI annex
will create 100 new corrections
officer jobs, along with, support
personnel, totalling somewhere in
the neighborhood of 250 new jobs
for the area.
When contacted by The Star
Wednesday morning, GCI Super-
intendent Henry Alford said he
had received notification from the
state's Department of Corrections
that the opening was postponed.
He said DOC stated a surplus of
prison beds as their reason for the
delay and gave no projected date
on when the addition might go
into service.
During' the board meeting,
Commissioner Billy Traylor said
people currently taking correc-
tions officer courses shouldn't be
discouraged, noting that there'
were plenty of corrections jobs
still available in the area. He
added, "the annex is built and will
eventually open."
Chairman Peters has sent let-
ters to the Department of Correc-
tions and Secretary of Labor
advising them of the current eco-
nomic status of Gulf County,
pointing out the temporary and
permanent loss of jobs in the area
and the need for the annex to go

Courthouse

Annex Under

Construction
(Photo at Top of Page)
For years, space within the
Gulf County Courthouse has been
a bone of contention with elected
county officials and county
administration vying for available
space as if they were chess play-
ers calculating their next move.
Gulf County Commissioners
have tried to manipulate the
available 'space in the courthouse
complex every way possible, but
have been unable to .make space
where -there is none. The board"
decided several months ago to go
ahead and bite the bullet and
build an addition to the court-
house complex to house adminis-
trative personnel of the county
currently located in the complex.
Fisher's Construction Com-
pany was the low bidder for the
project and the company is well
on their way with the construc-
tion of the building.
The board has applied for a
$100,000 CDBG grant to help pay
for upgrading the wind load factor
of the building to withstand a
140 mph wind. Gulf County
Emergency Management will be
one of the county administ&ative
agencies to locate in the new
building which prompted the
board to beef up the wind load
strength needed during tropical

storms and hurricanes.
A new county commission
meeting room will also be located
in the new structure.
Chief County Administrator,
Don Butler has estimated the
total cost of the project to be
approximately $350,000 once all
the finishing touches on the
building are complete.

It's Easter!

THE ENTIRE CHRISTIAN WORLD observes this coming
Sunday as an extra special day. The day is known as Easter; the
'day Jesus the Christ rose from the dead after going to the cross
to atone for the sins of everyone who would just ask for His for-
giveness.
All nations which claim to be Christian, including our own,
leave much to be desired before' they can truthfully claim the
designation. It has always been so. It's easier to claim the name
than live the Word.
We admire our pastor's analysis of such claims. Using evi-
dences so common around us, coupled with common-sense 'b-
servations, he pretty much charges all of mankind with using
things Christian merely for our own convenience. Evidence of
this is probably not any more evident than it is at Easter and
Christmas; the two points in'Christianity which we lean on most
heavily in our faith.
THERE ISN'T MUCH meaning to Easter if you have lost
sight of the meaning of Christmas and the full meaning of
Christmas isn't complete without a proper emphasis placed on
Easter. The almanac gives a secular description as being the "ar-,
fival of the spring season solstice and the first Sunday after the
paschal full moon, which is described as the 14th day of a lunar
month occurring on or next after March 21 [spring] according to
a fixed set of ecclesiastical calendar without regard to the real
moon."
That's one way of describing Easter. Another way-and the
most accepted method for Christians-to describe that special'
day is to say it is the day our Lord arose from the grave to abide
with the father, God; after making :full payment for our many
sins.
IT'S IRONIC, THAT AT THIS particular Easter season, the
Jews and the Palastinians are wrangling over a few acres of
ground in a place called Jerusalem, where Easter began, much
as they wrangled over the identity of the true messiah nearly
2,000 years ago. Unless a drastic change in matters comes
about, this same argument will go on for another 2,000 years,
with each claiming the true worship of God.
At this time of year, it is especially incumbent upon each of
you to decide for yourself, for not to decide is to have decided al-
ready.


They "Might" Come

WE APPRECIATE THE LETTER of experience from a
Blountstown lady discussing recent action by the county com-
mission to construct a building on property, calling it an "Indus-
trial Park", hoping an industrial tenant will come. The lady had
the insight of experience and familiarity with such hopeful ac-
tion, on her side. She said that, in her county; at least, only the
landowner from whom the property was purchased, benefitted.
The transaction cost the taxpayers of Calhoun a bundle. Sev-
eral other small counties, familiar to all of us, tried the same ap-
proach to industrialization, with the same results as Calhoun
County. She warned, that in all likelihood, Gulf County would
reap the same harvest; an empty industrial park with.an empty,
expensive building, sitting in the middle.
WELL, THERE'S ALWAYS that chance.
True, if the county commissioners aren't active after the
building is built, in searching out a tenant, it will sit vacant. If
they don't even have an inkling of what they are going to do with
the building, it has a chance to remain an expensive gamble.
We would not be in favor of the county constructing a build-
ing for a current establishment in Gulf County, merely so it can
have a new, or larger quarters from which to operate. The name
of the game is to attract new tenants; and charge them a fair
rent for the building. No business or manufacturer in Gulf
'County got its place of operations free. We don't cotton to
strangers coming.in and being able to do so, either.
Of course, that isn't the purpose for building a spec building
with the commission. They are planning to furnish a new busi-
ness with a hard deal to locate in a place which they have al-
ready built in Gulf County.
THE LADY FROM BLOUNTSTOWN was correct in her letter.
But, to quote the favorite words of our old friend, Wesley Grace,
"it's a lead-pipe cinch" they won't come, if we fail to show them
they are welcome. The planned industrial park is a gamble; a
large gamble. The only research we should make sure, of is
whether we can afford such a gamble at this particular time.

And much to Ricky Gene's

prohibiting the use/possession of
tobacco products for children
under 18 breezed through with-
out any public comment Tuesday
night.
No one from the public
offered any opposition to the ordi-
nance which will go through a
final public hearing during the
board's, next regularly scheduled
meeting (April 8th) before the
board takes its final vote on the
issue.
The ordinance first surfaced
as a suggestion from school
resource officers to put some
teeth behind the state law which
prohibits purchase of tobacco
products, but not possession or
use of by minors. SRO's were
looking for some help in control-
ling the use of tobacco products
among students in the school sys-
tem.
Gulf County Judge Bob
Moore and Gulf County Public
Health Director Doug' Kent
revived the issue for consideration
by the board during their
February 25th meeting.
The commission unanimously
agreed to proceed with the steps
to enact the ordinance.
If enacted, the ordinance can
convey a fine of up to $100 or up
to 50 hours of community service
for underage violators. Adults
buying, selling, or contributing to
the use of tobacco products by
minors can be fined up to $500 or
up. to 100 hours of community
service.
Judge Moore stated that the
ordinance was very similar in
design to a Duval County ordi-
nance on the same issue.
During the February meeting,
the board discussed the over-
whelming evidence against smok-
ing and the use of tobacco prod-
.ucts as a health hazard and how
they reflect on youth who pick up
the habit at an early stage in their
lives.
SCommissioner John Stanley
pointed out one such statistic
during Tuesday's meeting, stating
that 3,000 school children per
day are picking up on this nasty
habit nationwide.
Bid Opening Highland View
Water System
Bids were opened during the
board meeting for the rebuilding
,of Highland View's water system
financed by a $600,000 Commu-
nity Development Block Grant
awarded to the county.
Bids receivedifor. the. actual
construction phase of.the. project..,
rarngd in prfce from a low of"
$336,600 to a high of $682,800.
The board asked Gulf County
Chief Administrator. Don Butler
and District 3 Commissioner
Tommy Knox to review the bids

Dear Editor: .

heirloom. In 1979. during my,
:Grandmother's Estate Sale, a pic-
ture was mistakenly sold that I
had every intention of keeping in
the' family. The 'picture hung in
my Grandmother's dining room
and has incredible sentimental.
value to both my sister and
myself.
The subject matter of thiS.
print is a Victorian Music Room
with heavy draperies. The focal
point is a lady seated at piano
with a girl standing beside her
singing. In the background is a


tion at the board's next meeting.
The project includes totally
rebuilding the Highland View sys-
tem and replacement of all water
flow lines within it.
Aviation Jobs
John Cullins, Gulf Aviation,
approached the board seeking
their support and response to his
negotiation with an aircraft main-
tenance firm to locate adjacent to
Costin Airport.
Cullins said the firm remanu-
factures light aircraft and would
employ approximately 20 people if
they located at the facility. Before
he continues to talk with repre-
sentatives of the company he
needs some feedback from the
commission.
Commissioners Nathan
Peters, Jr. and Warren Yeager said
the board was always interested
in attracting new jobs to the
county. Concerns were voiced
about the impact on local resi-
dents.
Commissioner Yeager noted
that efforts were underway by
.Costin Airport owners to pur-
chase 288 acres and direct the
runway away from the residential
area. The county is in the process
of conducting a feasibility study
for the air park idea. If the total
project materializes, Costin
Airport owners would turn over
the airport to the county who
would apply for grant funds to
pave and light the runway and
develop the air park on the 288
acre parcel..

The Sea Oats and Dunes
Garden Club met recently at the
Community Room of Gulf County
Beaches Volunteer Fire Hall. The
meeting was called to order by
President Sally Malone. A very
interesting program on planting
and caring for ginger was given by
Viola B. Culverhouse, Horticul-
ture Chairman of the Panama
City Garden Club.
"They are a large group of
exotic plants" she stated, "with an
unmistakably tropical appear-
ance. Many are surprisingly cold
hardy, thriving outdoors as far
north as USDA Zone 7B." Gingers
prefer moist, fertile soil and, gen-
erally are considered to be shade
plants. Many, however, will thrive
in full sun provided they have
adequate moisture. Gingers are
remarkably free of most diseases
and pests that plague other
perennials.
Gingers are rhizones with
tuberous roots and must have
one to six "eyes" when planted.
.Mrs. Culverhouse recommended
that two tablespoons of 6-6-6 be
placed around each clump and
another dose be applied in about
six weeks, making sure to use
plenty of water.
Types of Gingers:
1. Alpinia: This is an ever-
green plant, generally up to 15',
with dark green or variegated
leaves.This type Is limited to frost-
free areas and should be grown in
greenhouses In this section of
Florida.
2. Costus:'The more common
name is spiral ginger and spiral
glag. These are dwarf in size to 15
feet. Flowers may. either be large
and crepe-like with frilled mar-
gins. Spiral flags generally prefer
partial sun, but also do well in full
sun if watered often.
3. Curcuma: Somewhat simi-
lar in appearance to short-stalked
bananas, curcumas have broad,
paddle-shaped leaves that are
somewhat pleated. The. bloom
cycle usually lasts from four to six
weeks, though bracts will remain
colorful for as long as 12 weeks.
The first bloom in Florida is as
early as May, with later bloomers
beginning in September. Plants
are dormant in winter. They range
in height from 2' to 7'.
-4. Hedychium: Hedychiums
may be small plants, 15", or soar-
ing giants over I 0'tll.'They begin "
.blooming in Gainesvill~.in mid-
June and continue until frost in
the- fall. The flowers, up to 4"
across, usually are extremely fra-
grant. and come in colors ranging
from pure white through yellow to
peach and orange/red. They pre-
fer .the afternoon filtered sun.
5. Kaempferia: This is often
called the peacock ginger. They
are perennials usually less than
one foot tall with large almond-
shaped leaves, ranging from pur-
ple to green. Some bloom, usually
with violet to white powers, for a
short period before the foliage
appears In the spring. Others pro-
duce a wealth of flowers through-
out ,the growing season. Kaein-
pferias prefer shade and are dor-
mant in the winter.
6. Zingebers: This variety is
used in cooking. They multiply
freely and prefer shade.
SGingers are a most exciting
crop to grow because of their easy
culture, exotic foliage and tropical
blooms. Mrs. Culverhouse recom-
mends a trip to the Galnesville
Tree Farm. 3714 NW 39th
Avenue, Gainesville, FL 32606.

Swamp

Shooters


Success
The Port St. Joe and Wewa-
hitchka High Athletic Depart-
ments, along with the sponsor-
ship of local partners, were able
to raise a combined total of
$3,400 thanks to community
support. The Swamp Shooters,
current, or previous Gator
players, provided hilarious enter-
tainment, as well as an important
message, "Stay in school and stay
drug-free".
The Swamp Shooters' impres-
sive roster for both events includ-
ed: Ike Hillard and Reidel Antho-
ny, both 96' Gator National
Champs, Kerwin Bell of the Colts,
Willis Jackson of the Jaguars, Er-
rict Rhett of the Tampa Bay Bucs,
and Ben Hanks of the Vikings.
Port St. Joe High School re-
ports that approximately 300 peo-
ple attended the Friday night
event in the "dome". The current
state champs, along with some
past PSJ players ended up 111-
111 against the Swamp Shooters
S in regulation play. After a three
minute over-time and referee
support, the score remained tied
117-117.
Friday night in Port St. Jde,
Rock Salzer, "Sonny" Boykin and
John Crosby all tried at half-time
to win their choice of a car or
$10,000. Despite their determina-
tion, no one won. All the Swamp
Shooters autographed their shirts
and gave them away to many
lucky individuals during period
breaks.
.Wewahitchka High School
raised over $2,000 in ticket sales
and concessions for Saturday
night's event in Wewahitchka.
The Swamp Shooters played a va-
riety of Wewa's athletes. The
Lady Gator basketball team out-
scored the "ole' Gators" in one pe-
riod of play, this was an exciting
defeat. Also, teacher and coach
Jay Bidwell rimmed the half-
court shot in the last seconds of
time to almost win the car or
money.at half-time. The crowd

Each year competition is held
for ages 10 through 14 for both,
male and female contenders. The
winners' progress from the local
through district level, then to
regional competition and state
finals. In all, there-were five levels
of competition Bailey had over-
come.
Bailey competed against an
average of seven boys at each
level. The state competition was
most difficult since he shot first.

stated after the competition.
"Leonard Raye; represented ,this
county as a fine champion. But,
all those boys and: girls who com-
peted were winners, and this
county should be very proud of
i each of them. This is only bur sec-
ond year of competition, and we
hope to have an even better show-
ing next year."

Flatheads to

Be Tagged
By late April, fisheries biolo-
gists of the Florida Game and
Fresh Water Fish Commission
plan to tag 2,000 flathead catfish
on the Apalachicola River as part
of a study to look at the species'
disbursement and use by anglers..
Fisheries biologist Dan
Dobbins said flatheads 12 inches
and larger will be captured from
Chattahoochee to Blountstown,
tagged and immediately released.
"The tags are orange or white,
and will have a four-digit number
and our telephone number," he
said. "We're asking anyone who
catches a tagged flathead to give
us a call and in return we'll send
them a ball cap. ''t
S "The purpose of this project is
to determine a population esti-
mate, size distribution, movement
of the species and angler exploita-
tion, or how many are caught"
Flatheads first made their
appearance in the Apalachicola
River at the Jim Woodruff Dam in
1982, and about the same time in
the :Escambia River near
Pensacola. Since then, the pisciv-
orous catfish has been found in
the Chipola River and
Ochlockonee River both above
and below Lake Talquin.

Garden Center Has An Interesting History, Along With Railroad, City

George Core Tells Club Members Building First Built in 1925 to House Catholic Church, Deeded to Club July 23, 1969


Program presented by George
Core to the Port StL Joe Garden
Club, March 13, 1997
We are going to talk about
some of the history of this build-
ing which was the first Port St.
Joe Catholic Church from the
time it was built in 1925 until ser-
vices were terminated here and
moved to the new church on
Monument Avenue. We will also
include some of the history of
your club and of Port St. Joe dur-
ing this period.
In the early days of Port St.
Joe, some of the civic minded
women formed the "Woman's
Club". They built a log building on
Lot 29 of Block 46, which is
across the alley from this building
on the corer of 9th Street and
Long Avenue. The property
belonged to the Port St. Joe
Company. The title was never
transferred to the Woman's Club.
It served as a community
building for a number of years
and as an Outreach Club, doing
much good work in welfare work
and at the same time, being the
home of the Woman's Club. Some
years later the building deterio-
rated to the extent it could not
S serve its purpose any longer, so it
was demolished.
A short time after this, the
Garden Club was organized and
your new club took over the work
that had been done so long by the
Woman's Club, in addition to your
own projects.
Your new Garden Club had
nopermanent home from the time
it was organized until you pur-

Priest commuted
from Apalachicola
in a Cadillac
equipped with
wheels for running
on railroad tracks

Can you imagine a Cadillac
coming down the railroad track
with the priest sitting in the back
seat, most likely holding up the
cross so it would not bounce out?
There were five sidetrack stops
between Apalachicola and Port St.
Joe. The first stop was Ftan~Im,
-thenf Tilttn, Odena, Higgins and
Niles. There were always people at
these stations. What in the world
were their thoughts and, comn-
ments to each other the first,titme
they saw the priest sitting in the
back seat of that Cadillac coming
down ithe railroad track holding
up the cross.
It is not known how long this
Cadillac was used but within a
year or two Fr. Massey was dri-
ving his own automobile to Port
St. Joe.
If you had traveled the old
road in.1918 you would know it
was only passable In good weath-
er, but if there had been a rain the
day before you wanted to make
your trip, then it was doubtful if
your car could make it through
the several pond areas in the
Indian Pass low country, on either
side of the J. T. McNeill home and
turpentine still. Mr. McNeill
always had a team of mules ready
to pull those few cars through the
bog holes when they failed to
make it on their own power.
This road out of Apalachicola
was an oyster shell base for the
first six miles, from there on it
was sand, mud and two ruts only.
In the two rut places, there were
usually wide boards placed in
S each rut. These boards were 10 to
12 inches wide. They were pecky
cypress rejects from the large
sawmill at Tilton. Mr. McNeill's
mule team pulled Fr. Massey
through these bog, holes a great
number of times.
Need For a Church Building
A Catholic family in
Apalathicola was instrumental in
the acquisition of the property
and the construction of the first
church. W. D. Buzzett (the father
of Gannon Buzzett of Port St. Joe
and Colonel Harry Buzzett of St.
George Island), back in 1918 on to
1920, were dealing with Bishop
Edward P. Allen of Mobile, for the
establishment of a church in Port
St: Joe. These negotiations were
successful.
In 1920, Port St. Joe became
a regular Catholic Mission.
Reverend Father Francis DeSales
conducted his first mass under
the mission status. This service
was in the home of Capt. and Mrs.
Robert Tapper. These services


continued until this building was
completed in 1925, about the
time Gulf County was created out
of Calhoun County.
The Tapper family at that
time was living in a rented home
somewhere near the city pier. I am
not certain as to the exact loca-
tion of this house. I do remember
two homes just off to the right
, side of the old pier (on the paper


mill side). I remember that a lady
fortune teller lived in one of these
homes. Boys playing along that
part of the beach always wanted
to get their fortune told but none
of them had the 254 to pay.,
The Tappers moved out of the
rented home on November 11,
1925 and moved into their new
home on the corner of 8th Street
and U.S. 98, now Dr. Oksanen's
office. They purchased this home
from Ida Ethel Brown's parents,
Mr. and Mrs Max Kilbourn, who
settled here in 1919.
The Port St. Joe Company
sold the property for this building
to Edward P. Allen, Bishop of
Mdbile and his successors in
office, January 15, 1920, being
Lots 16, 18, 20 and 22, Block 46,
recorded in the Blountstown
Courthouse in deed book "W",
pages 268 and 269.
During this time Fr. Massey,
who was the priest in charge of
the Colored Catholic Church and
Convent in Apalachicola was con-
ducting services here in Port St.
Joe. He lived in a beautiful con-
vent home which was put up for
sale in 1975, when Eldon
Schelles' family bought it and
moved it to the Eleven Mile where
they live today. ,
Mrs. Brown says that she"
remembers that on occasions Fr.
Massey's car would get stuck in
the sand ruts at Black Jack Ridge
(the Jones Homestead area) and
he would not:make it in time for
mass. She said the road was
almost impassable so much of the
time until it became a joke with
the few people in Port St. Joe and
Apalachicola that had automo-
biles, that everyone would time
their trip, and then complain or
brag about how long it took them.
to make the 30 mile trip. Her
father, Mr. Kilbourn set a record
making the trip in one hour and
15 minutes.
Dave Maddox used to tell
about his trips from Apalachicola
to Port St. Joe during this time.
he said after taking a ship (he was
bar Pilot) to Apalachicola, he
would then catch a ride with the
first car going to St. Joe. He would
enjoy that ride as far as a big sand
ridge near the county line. He
would tell the driver to please
drop him off there at the trail road
used by the turpentine mule and
wagons from Odena. He would
then walk to Odena and from
there would walk to Port St Joe
over the railroad track and would
get there almost every time before
the car he started out in.
IMrs. Brown informs us that
the first Catholic parishioners
were Ivory Nedley and his brother
Bob (operated a store), Capt., and
Mrs. Robert Tapper (Menhaden
Co.), Nick Comforter. (Bar Pilot),
Mr. and Mrs. Byron Eells
(Railroad Co.) and Dennis
Sullivan (Railroad Co.).

Ida Ethel Kilbourn
and Charles Brown
were the first cou-
ple married in the
new church.

Ida Ethel Kilbourn and
Charles A. Brown were the first
Couple married in this building,
on August 28, 1929. Fr. Massey
performed this first marriage.
The area of Port St Joe was
first known as Indian Pass for a
number of years. The first post
office here was named Indian
Pass. The U.S. Postal Department
changed the name of the post
office to Port St. Joe on August
10, 1910. The town of Port St. Joe
was incorporated July 1, 1913.
The first mayor was Thomas
Howard. The Postmaster J.B.
Collins was the first City
Commissioner.
The second mayor was Dr.
B.S. Stutz, who was the first doc-
tor of Port St. Joe. The third
mayor was T. H. Stone.
Port St. Joe was now a grow-
ing community, but only because
the Apalachicola Northern Rail-
road Co. moved its headquarters
from Apalachicola to Port St. Joe
in 1909, Did you know that if the
railroad had been in Port St. Joe
first, the name would have been
"Port St. Joe Northern Railroad
Co"?
The railroad was causing
much excitement now that it was
in a deep seagoing harbor town.
Business was booming for the
first time since the magnificent
days of Old St. Joseph.
The new railroad tracks from
Apalachicola to Port St. Joe were
completed and ready for the inau-
gural run in late April 1932. The
Apalachicola Times issue of May


7, 1932 reports on this first trip
from Apalachicola, stating that
J.H. Hodges, the General
Passenger Agent announced the
first excursion which was also the
first passenger train over the
track would leave Apalachicola for
Port St. Joe on Saturday morning
at 8 o'clock. The round trip fare
was 50*. The Methodist Church

ABOUT SPRAINS
Foot and ankle sprains can
occur in everyday activities, but he
incidence Is greatest among people
engaged in running and other ath-
letics. Sprains result from seere
stress on tissue, not bone, and vary
in the intensity of their effects.
An ankle sprain can heal com-
pletely with proper care if there has
been no lasting damage. But some
sprains tear ligaments or leave
them too stretched to control
motion of a joint within its normal
range, and the joint remains unsta-
ble.

of Apalachicola used this event as
an annual picnic and invited the
entire town to come along for this
exciting day. So many people
turned out until the train had to
make three tips to get everyone to
St. Joe for the picnic. The return
trips were at 3, 6 and 9 o'clock.
This was a day for all to remem-
ber. Swimming, playing on the
pier and beach, eating fried chick- 1
en and drinking ice cold lemon-
ade. I spent much time around
that huge barrel of lemonade. My'
father and mother engaged a
room at the Port Inn overlooking
the park where all of the activities
were going on. They spent most of
the day at the hotel while my two
brothers and I spent all of our
time in the park and splashing in
the bay. All of the adults were
ready to catch the first train
home, however all.-the .children.'.


wanted to stay longer.
This building was a great
event in the Catholic Church life
in Port St. Joe. The railroad was
looked on as new life for all of Port
St. Joe. The door was now open
for new opportunities with the
connection to every other railroad
in the United States, plus the
expected seagoing steamships
from all over the world that can
now dock at the railroad docks
extending 500 feet out in the bay
to within a depth of 25 feet of
water.
There is much more to this
story,'however, this ends the first
chapter.

in some cases surgery is advis-

'Faith Christian School


All students will be dismissed
by 12 o'clock noon, Friday, March
28 for Easter vacation. This holi-
day commemorates the
Christian's vital belief in the
death, burial, and resurrection of
our Lord Jesus Christ. As Paul
said in I Corinthians 15:14, "If
Christ be not risen, then is our
preaching vain, and your faith is
also vain". If you read the entire
chapter you will know that
"because He lives, we also shall
live". Easter is truly a Joyful time
for Christians.
Students and teachers from
grades six through 12 were treat-
ed to a demonstration of the
Jewish Passover Seder by Rev.
Woody Reynolds. on Monday
morning, March 24. Rev.
Reynolds is a missionary with the
organization, To Israel With Love,
which reaches out to Jewish peo-

pie with the Gospel of Christ. He
explained to the students how
each part of the Jewish Passover
Sfeast and celebration points to the
death, burial, and resurrection of
Christ. It was a most interesting
and informative demonstration.
Last week's emblem, 'or
school seal, contest was won by
Renee Vinson. Class winners were
fifth grade, Jenna Teat, fourth
grade, Heather Henderson, and
third grade, Michael Griffin.
Grade one did a great job as a
class project.
This week our students are
dressed in blue and gold. We are
ending the "Spirit and Pride"

Thursday will be the Science
Fair for grades six through eight.

Herbs: Easy to Grow


and Require Little Care

They Don't Take Up Much Room
To Provide a Year Around Crop


Planting-an herb garden is
one of the best ways to enjoy
year-round gardening in Florida.
Herbs are easy to' grow; they
require very little care, and they
don't take up much room. Even if
you don't have a large back yard,
you can grow herbs successfully.
A small garden bed, a window,
box, or even a few clay pots can
give you a plentiful supply of aro-
matic herbs throughout the year.
Herbs are rapid growers, and
they have a wide variety of uses in
the home. They can be used fresh
or dried. And, when dried, they'll
keep for a long time. In this article
I'll explain some of the basics of
herb culture, and then we'll go
into more detail about a few of the
herbs that are most popular with
Florida gardeners.
A good garden soil that's free
of weeds and close to a water sup-
ply will keep your herbs healthy
and growing rapidly. If you have
the space, plant herbs in a narrow
strip preferably at the border of
your vegetable garden. This will
keep your herbs within easy
reach. Obviously, if you scatter
them across a wide garden plot,
you'll have to walk over other
plants to gather them unless you
can provide some garden path-
ways. Of course, if you're growing
herbs in window boxes or clay
pots this won't be a problem.,
Herbs vary considerably in
theirneed for sunlight and cool or
warm temperatures. For specific
information, you'll:neld to check
in an herb culture book, or the
back of seed packages. We'll
describe a few of the most com-
mon and popular herbs for you.
Dill is probably the easiest
and the hardiest herb you can
grow. It's usually planted in late
fall and early winter, because of
its ability to 'withstand cool tem-
peratures. It may also be planted

in the spring. Dill isn't particular-
ly fussy about its soil. Any soil
that's suitable for your regular
garden vegetables is fine for dill.
And, another plus-dill is rarely
bothered by insects or diseases.
Fresh dill leaves add excellent fla-
vor to salads and cream sauces.
And, as a dried herb, dill is well
known for the distinct flavor it
gives to pickles.
Another popular herb enjoyed
by Florida gardeners is sweet
basil (Bay-zil). This herb is an
annual, and it can be replanted in
the same area year after year.
Basil also is used fresh and dried.
It is widely used as a flavoring for
soups, meats, and fish. One word
of caution don't over-plant
this one. A few basil plants will
provide more leaves and flowers
than an entire family can use in a
year.
Sweet marjoram (MAR-jer-
em) also is easy to grow and quite

The Risen


Christ

In Matthew 28:6 we
find, "He is not here, for
he has risen." We pro-
claim and sing, "I serve a
risen Saviour." Millions of
Christians have made
this proclamation for


almost two thousand
years. The world has been changed because of
the first Easter morning when God raised His
Son from the dead. We have victory in Jesus..
Life has many complications. We are mortal
human beings with birth' and death. Humans
have always longed for something beyond this
ending. God has set a time schedule beyond
human expectations. Immortality is opened for
us because Jesus Christ is our Lord and Saviour
is a time to celebrate and thank God. Christ is
our brother, and the eternal God is our Father.

popular. It adds unique flavor to
,salad dressings and soups. The
overwhelming characteristic of
sweet marjoram is its fragrance.
When this herb is dried, it is often
used as a sachet to sweeten linen
closets, and clothes storage'
chests.
Obviously, the list of herbs:
which grow very well in Florida is
quite lengthy, and we won't be
able to go into all of them today.
Just remember a few basic points
about herb gardens and you'll
surely discover the virtues of
other kinds we haven't men-
tioned. As we've said, herbs are
generally easy to grow, and adapt
to either outdoor or indoor cul-
ture. With just a little effort, grow-
ing herbs can provide you with
year-round gardening satisfac-
tion.

Dear Counselor:
Over the past few years I've
been involved in a lot of physical-
ly, emotionally, and sexually
destructive relationships. I've
tried to avoid these types of rela-
tionships, however, I seem 'to
habitually get involved with "bat-
terers"--I don't understand how
this happens and why? What can
I do to stop this cycle??
Signed, Victim
Dear Victim,
It is commendable that you
have recognized the "destructive"
pattern in your relationships, and
have reached out to seek answers.
The fact that you have identified
yourself as having been, involved
over and over in "destructive rela-
tionships" would ,lead me to
believe that you are trying to
change this pattern for yourself.
Violence is never acceptable in
any relationship.
The reasons for violence in
relationships are highly variable.
For some people, remaining in an
abusive relationship involves
such factors as financial depen-
dence, poor self-esteem, fear of
the unknown, religion, fear of the
possible consequences, and self
blame.
Whatever the reasons, re-
maining in or leaving a relation-
ship riddled with violence is a dif-
ficult personal decision. Despite'
the reason, I would caution you
against "blaming yourself" for
someone else's behavior.
Regardless of how conflictual rela-
tionships become, there is never
an excuse for one partner to
demonstrate violence against the
other.
It is extremely difficult to
break the cycle of violence within


a relationship. Self exploration on,
behalf of both partners is neces-
sary and in most instances, coun-
seling is beneficial. Counseling
explores such issues as effective
communication, Improvements in
conflict management, increasing
intimacy, exploration .of past
childhood experiences and
increasing personal awareness.
Again, for counseling in any
relationship to be helpful, you
must be in agreement that vio-
lence, physical abuse, and men-
tally abusive behavior are not ever
acceptable.
There are several resources in
the community which are benefi-
cial for facilitating change in help-
,ing with this situation. It is
strongly recommended that you
pursue individual or group coun-
seling, explore domestic violence
shelters, hotlines or any other'
viable resources which will be
helpful.
S Our clinic 'has professional
counselors who can help. You can
contact us by phone (24 hours
daily). Additionally, the Salvation
Army operates a 24 hour a day
domestic violence program, and
they can be reached by calling 1-
800-252-2597.

Co. Comm. Tommy Knox Speaks to Rotary; Expresses Need for Vocational Training in Schools

things. He spoke about his job
and the affect it will have on his
young charges.
He said he had seen demon-
strated the need young people
have for working with their
hands, no matter how good a stu-
dent they are, in his tenure at
Port St. Joe High School. 'They
need and expect to get exposed to
material in text books in order to
become computer ,operators, or.
scientists, or chemists, but they
also have a yearning to be able to
do something proficiently with


their hands," he said.
Knox said he had seen that
interest expressed in the fact that
his class has expanded from 30
students when he started teach-
ing some- five years ago, to over
60 students today.
"Obviously all 60 students
are not going to earn their liveli-
hood by welding, but knowing the
skill Is important and valuable to
them," the speaker said.
Knox then pointed out the
importance for students to have a
job, performing some useful work


for firms in the community, nam-
ing some of the businesses which
has hired students to work.
'This is important to the stu-
dents, in that they learn a variety
of different skills in this manner.
They never know when they may
have to depend on this acquired
knowledge," the speaker pointed
out..
"A child may never use skills
acquired in his student days
when he reaches adulthood, but
they serve him well in under-
standing economics, mechanics,


dealing with the public, working
under pressure and with other
people, etc," he said.
Knox went on to support and
recommend an expanded voca-
tional department in the high
school as being a necessity, not a
luxury.
Clark Davis was inducted as
a new member in the club.
Guests of the club were Hal
Flynn of Tennessee, John Froth-
ingham of Illinois, Bob Bolduc of
Michigan and Dick Reinhart, of
Port St. Joe.


Arizona Chemical has a
strong commitment to full compli-
ance with all environmental laws
and regulations wherever opera-
tions are located. Maintaining
this commitment requires the in-
volvement of all employees, and
with the establishment of an En-
vironmental Stewardship Council,
employees at the Port St. Joe
plant have taken personal owner-
ship in the plant's environmental
efforts.
According to Jim Newton, en-
vironmental specialist at the Port
St. Joe plant, "Each employee
must understand his/her envi-
ronmental responsibility and the
council is designed to help foster
that sense of ownership."
The mission of the Environ-
mental Stewardship Council: To
help each employee act as an en-
vironmental steward both at work
and at home by promoting envi-
ronmental responsibility and rec-
ognized that effective environ-
mental stewardship begins with
environmental. responsibility and
results in environmental leader-
ship.
Steve Lawrence, council
chairman, said, "The development
of the council shows that employ-
ees at the -plant are concerned
and,,care about the environment.
The ultimate goal is to make Ari-
zona Chemical a global leader in
environmental stewardship."
The council will also provide
leadership within the plant and
throughout the community in
promoting environmental .activi-
ties such as recycling, education-

License/Vehicle
Inspections Set
The Florida Highway Patrol
will be conducting inspection
checkpoints during the week of
March 28 through'31 on CR-73
near CR-287, and on SR-30 near
Allen Memorial Way.
Recognizing the danger pre-
sented to the public by defective
vehicle equipment, troopers will
concentrate their efforts on vehi-
cles operated with defects such as
bad brakes, worn tires and defec-
tive lighting equipment. In addi-
tion, attention will be directed to
drivers who would violate the dri-
ver license laws of Florida.
The patrol has found these
checkpoints to be an effective
means of enforcing the equipment
and driver license laws of Florida.
ensuring the protection of all
motorists.
