New Post Office Building Bid Recently
To Be About Twice Size of Old Building
Should Be In Service Within a
Year At Garrison and Hwy. 71
Port St. Joe is one step nearer to getting a new
post office building complex, The Star learned
Tuesday. A new and larger building will be built on
2.6 acres of land, situated at the Intersection of
Garrison Avenue and State Highway 71, on the
southwest corner, or, if you have lived here long
enough to remember, on the location of the old trail-
er park which was temporarily put in several years
ago to accommodate construction workers who were
here on a project.
The new building was bid off recently and 10
bids were received. It was announced earlier this
year of intentions to seek bids for a package deal for
the post office department.
The successful bidder was E. H. Crum of
Niceville, but the amount of the bid is unknown at
Dennis Geoghagan. postmaster, gave the
Kiwanis Club some general information about the
new installation Tuesday at its regular meeting.
Geoghagan said the new building will contain
8,400 square feet-nearly twice the size of the pre-
sent office. It will be built an owned by Crum and
leased to the USPS for a 25 year period with the pos-
sibility of three 5-year extensions.
The new building will feature a "supermarket"
look for the various services it offers. A self-serve
motif will be evident in the new office, with buying a
stamp an act of picking up a pre-packed and pre-
priced commodity and the price bar coded on the
package. An intricate system of security will be built
into the building to prevent pilferage..
Items bought in the "supermarket" post office,
will be scanned, with the scanning operation remov-
ing the magnetic code. If a person tries to slip an an
item of merchandise out of the building without first
going through the scanner, an alarm will sound.
ABOUT A YEAR
Geoghagan said the starting date for construc-
tion has not been set as yet, but the building will
take about a year to build, once it gets underway.
An option was secured on the property by the
postal service earlier this year. Crum will be expect-
ed to purchase the property from the postal service,
erect the building and lease it to the postal service.

Port St. Joe city commission-
ers have taken a serious stand for
cleaning up the city and their
efforts have been quite noticeable
along public rights-of-way. medi-

Those efforts have gone one
step further in recent months
with the board instructing Police

almost all have complied with the
ordinance within the 30-day pre-
scribed time limit from the time
the complaint was posted.
Five complaints are currently
filed with the State Attorney's
Office and hearings are pending.
"We're not picking on any one

Depressed Paper Market Stretches Downtime
for Florida Coast Paper to Include Month of Oct.
Instability in the world's ',
paper market has continued to '
apply downward pressure on
paper products prices.
That's not good news for the
460 hourly workers employed by
Florida Coast Paper Company.
Mill General Manager Ferrel Allen
announced late last week that
because of those continued world-
wide market conditions, the local
mill will remain down through the
month of October.
"The situation hasn't changed ----- -
any," Allen said Tuesday morn-
ing. "Furthermore, we don't
expect to know anything addition- .. '..
al until the latter part of October."

THE STATE OF FLORIDA could have eliminated the work

There was no damage where the spoil was placed adjacent to

We have been bombarded by information about the case
since-it all hit the fan.last- Friday,. and from what members of

IT'S SAD THAT RECENT HAPPENINGS on Capitol Hill have

he won't discuss it in a column.

at is that 'old Kes didn't write
about that fellow, Mark McGwire,
and his skill with a baseball bat.
Kes has more than a passing in-

like an obsession with him. So, I

think it was a team which was

They're definitely his team.
Why, he even argues with his

Stan Musial, Enos Slaughter,

guys: practically invented base-
ball, so far as Kes Is concerned. If
you don't believe they did, then
he will expect you to accept, une-
quivocally, the fact that the game
was at least invented FOR them
THAT'S ANOTHER reason I
am. taken aback by his choice as,

as much weight as those in a control
group on the same fat reduced diet.
Neither group was instructed to de-

published in the .4mencan Journal of

have to reduce the amount of food you
eat to lose weight, provided that you
limit the fat.
Dr. Contei says that animal studies
suggest the mechanism behind the
weight reduction is'due to interruption
of the "Krebs Cycle", an important step
in the body's fai storage process He.

Luncheon at LABC to Focus on Foster Care, Adoption
A MEDITATIONS tOF A
By LOWELL F. ADAMS
a Grace Greater
by His Grace
OST CHRISTIANS try to be "perfect" in their
walk-beforeGod. Some feel if they commit any sin, they
areq"fallen from Grace" and no longer a Child of God.
Jesus told the rich young ruler in Matthew 19:17,
"There is none good but God." He spoke these words
when "keeping the law" was the way to please God. But
no one ever kept the law, except Jesus. And He took the
law to the. cross with Him. He became the sacrifice for
our sins. In Ephesians chapter 2, verses 8 and 9, The
Word tells us we are saved by Grace (Mercy of God) and
not by the works of the law.
I John 2:1 and 2, tells us (Christians) to not sin,
but if we do happen to sin, we have an Advocate with
the Father, Jesus. And Jesus is the propitiation for our
sins. The meaning of propitiate is "reconcile", or "win
the favor of". Jesus sits at the right hand of God,
continually reconciling our sins with God. God tells us
when we realize even though saved, we are still
sinners, it may cause us to be discouraged. But, "if our
heart, condemns us, ;(over our sin) God is greater than
our heart.'" (Verse 20)' '
It also tells us God knows all about us, whether we
are trying to live right. He knows the intent of our
heart. "As we think in our heart, so are we. "Prov. 23:7.
We become Christians by believing Jesus is God"s
Son and our Savior, and accepting Him in our heart
and mind, as Lord and Savior. Joining a church, though
good and desirable, has nothing to do with becoming a
Christian. It happens by faith in Jesus.
When one becomes a Christian, the Holy Spirit of
God enters their heart and soul, and they are born
spiritually, into the family of God. They want to
please God, but being still in a sinful body of flesh,
they sometimes slip up. and sin. Jesus takes care of
that, for He knows the intent of the heart. Faith is our
victory over sin. Jesus is our Keeper.
God is our Father, and Jesus is our Friend. When
we try to live in a way to please God, we are
"righteous" in His eyes. God accepts us because of
Jesus, our Friend. He will never leave nor forsake us.

Variety of Junipers Make
Good Landscape Plants
With Good Salt Tolerance
These Versatile Plants Prized Because
They Flourish Under Variety of Conditions
by Roy Lee Carter
: county Extension Director(
Experienced garden hobby-
*Ists recognize the value of using
balt tolerant plants whenever pos-
sible for landscaping coastal
home sites. Juniper ranks high
on the list of popular specimens
for such locations because they
aire well adapted to salt spray and
' But, these versatile plants are
also prized by inland gardeners,
sice they grow well under a wide
range of conditions.,
Gardeners all over Florida
employ a wide variety of junipers
to add eye appeal to home
grounds, many of which will grow
well throughout North Florida,
along the coast, or inland.
My information on junipers
was provided by Extension Urban
Horticulturist Dr. Robert Black, of
the University of Florida's
Institute of Food and Agricultural
In addition to residential

plantings, junipers often are used
to beautify city streets, parking
lots, and other public areas. They
can withstand the poor soil condi-
tions commonly encountered in
such locations. They also offer the
added advantages of excellent
drought tolerance and low main-
Junipers are available in
many shapes and sizes-from
giants, such as the southern red
cedar, which may grow 30 feet
tall, to dwarfs which are only four
to six inches high. The basic
forms include spreading shrubs,
/ creeping ground covers, and
upright trees. These types offer a
choice of many shades of foliage,
ranging from blue and gray to yel-
low and mint.
Usually, in city plantings,
only a few kinds of juniper are
ever used. But, for home grounds
you can take advantage of some of
the more exotic and little known
varieties. Most of these will grow
just as well as the more common
types and will provide interesting
effects in your landscape.
If you're thinking of adding a
tree or two, you might consider
planting upright junipers, such as
the south red cedar-which, as
we just mentioned, may reach a
height of 30 feet. Or you might
prefer a smaller type, like the hol-
lywood. Both of these varieties are
well suited to growing conditions
:,throughout, our state.,
If a spreading, or a shrub
type, would be better suited to
your needs, you could select a
pfitzer [FIT-zer] juniper. This pop-
ular plant, which is used
throughout the United States,
grows up to six feet tall and nine
feet across. Smaller shrub vari-
eties are also available.
Creeping junipers can be
used as ground covers. However,
they don't grow thick enough to
prevent weeds from growing in
the bed. So the creepers require
more care than the upright or
Junipers need a lot of sun-
light. So plant them in areas
where they'll receive full sun for at
least half the day. Junipers grown
in heavy shade are, apt to be
rather small and; more disease
prone. As we've said. junipers are
basically low maintenance plants,
but they're not, totally trouble-
Disease problems include
twig blight, cedar-apple rust, root
rot, and juniper decline. Of these,
twig blight is most common, espe-
cially on new growth. The primary
insect, pests are red spider mites
and bagworms. For specific infor-
mation on the symptoms of these,
problems, and recommended con-
trol measures, we suggest you

Obviously, the legislative
intent of the act is to strengthen

citizens with regard to marriage,

Some of the components of
the act include the following:
Couples who agree to take a pre-
marriage course will get a 832.50
price break on the cost of their
marriage license, and the state
will make available a handbook
explaining the rights and respon-,
sibilities of marital partners.
Also, couples with minor chil-

required to complete a state-pre-

course will include, among other
topics, conflict management,

And what does the legislation
mean for the mandated high

Advocates of these courses
are taking their cue from a new
