AUBREY TOMLINSON has been at the corner of First
Street and Highway 98 for so long he has become almost a
part of the landscape. Tomlinson completed 30 years of
operating his Gulf Service Station at the same corner last
week. Aubrey is shown with a cake marking the occasion

State's Attorney Leo C. Jones told The Star
yesterday that he had asked Circuit Judge Larry
G. Smith to call a Grand Jury to examine and
rule on Judge Taunton's charges. Jones said
Judge Smith will be selecting the Grand Jury
names today for notification to report for duty on
November 15. The County Commission voted
about midnight Tuesday to ask for a Grand Jury
to be impaneled, but before they could make
their request, Jones had already made the
decision to issue the order.

that he had manipulated the
State Road Department into
abandoning plans to put a
detour on the west side of a
bridge to be replaced at
Simmons Bayou and make
available only the road which
serves the Country Club as a
detour route in order to get the
road paved and enhance the
value of his property.
Taunton also accused Tap-
per of manipulating the fi-
nancing of the Country Club
through a loan from the
federal government, also to
enhance the value of his
property. Taunton charged
that when the loan fell through
the first time that Tapper
went to his friend, Congress-
man Bob Sikes in order to get
the matter reinstated.
The gist of the Judge's
charges seemed to be that he
thought Rish had somehow
acquired his Honeyville pro-
perty as an appreciation for
persuading the state to pur-
chase Kenner's property; that
he and Core had been traded a
parcel of land by Tapper for a
smaller parcel for their per-
suasion of the County Com-
mission to drain and encour-
age the DOT to construct the
road at the country club. He
claimed the tax payers were
used in the transactions.
Taunton also charged that
the County Commission had
allowed themselves to be ma-
nipulated by the trio.
Taunton charged Represen-
tative William J. Rish of
having taken possession of
property on Highway 71 near
Honeyville, along with several
other people, and that later
the State purchased several
thousand acres of land from
Hamilton Kenner's MK Ranch
along the Apalachicola River
for $2,413,000. Taunton made
no direct charges in this
Taunton increased his
charges against Rish and
included Clerk of the Court
George Y. Core by stating
they had traded 2.5 acres of
land to George Tapper in the
Simmons Bayou for 12 acres of
land. The Judge claimed a
parcel of the property, which
lies next to the water is now
worth $60,000.
After making the charges,
in his attempt to explain his
telephone bills (which nobody
ever got around to approving
or disapproving) the Judge
attempted to leave the packed
Court Room where the meet-
ing was held.
Both Rish and Tapper rose
to stop Taunton's exit, with
Tapper stating, "Just a min-
ute Judge, we have sat here
for over an hour listening to
you, now you are going to
listen to us for a while."
Tapper then told Taunton he
had just broken one of the 10
Commandments by bearing
false witness. "This is a
political matter", he said.
"It's not the golf course,
money or anything else. You
have set yourself up as the
judge, the state's attorney,
when you should have made
your charges to the proper
authorities if you think we
have done what you claimed."
Tapper then went on to
accuse Taunton of having
already gone to the Governor
and the State's Attorney's
office with his accusation only
to have them dismissed as
unfounded and no grounds for
Tapper then began to defend
his actions.
He stated the golf course
people came to him when they
learned he was going to build a
golf course on his property at
Simmons Bayou. "They had
tried four times to build a
public golf course and couldn't
get the land", he said. Tapper
stated he ultimately dropped
his plans for a private country

and if you had looked you
would have known this if you
had read the deed properly.
Rish shook the deed in Taun-
ton's face and asked,
"Where's Kenner's signature
on this deed?"
Rish showed his deed
around which was signed by
Roger Noall and Mary Voog,
transferring the property to
Rish and others involved ins
the purchase.
Rish went on to state, "This
property was advertised for .

One Local Question On

Next Tuesday's Ballot

Gulf County voters will go to
the polls for the last time this
year Tuesday to cast their
vote in an election which
usually sees only national
candidates on the ballot.
There will be no partisan
voting for Gulf County candi-
dates. All local races were
decided in the Primaries in
September, since there were
no Republican candidates fil-
ed for office.
Though there are no local
candidates on the ballot, there
will be a local question in the
form of a straw vote.
Earlier this year, the Gulf
County Commission decided
to merge their Civil Defense
and Veterans' Service offices


Parade Friday

Friday afternoon is Homecoming Parade
time here in Port St. Joe. The young people from
the School will be putting on their annual parade
down Reid Avenue to whip up enthusiasm for the
Homecoming game to be played Friday evening
with Wakulla County.
The parade will start at 4:00 P.M., and will
travel north on Reid Avenue from Fifth Street to
First. The parade will then turn left and come
back down Highway 98 to Avenue A, then to Main
Street and proceed north on Main to Avenue D.
The parade will then proceed back to Highway 98
and travel back to its point of beginning at
Fifth Street.
Both local schools will dismiss at 1:00
tomorrow afternoon, with the bus routes to be
run immediately after dismissal of classes.

to ask for Cong. Sikes' aid with
the loan, but that the country
club officials at that time had
approached the Congressman.
Tapper agreed the question-
ed detour had been placed to
the east of the bridge at
Simmons Bayou while it was
being rebuilt, "Because the
Department of Pollution Con-
trol wouldn't let the state put it
on the west side. "I wanted it
on the west side", Tapper
said, "because I owned the
property there and wanted to
put in a marina there, some-
thing this county has been
trying to get for over 30
Tapper stated the detour
used the golf course-road bed
because other property own-
ers in the area wouldn't give
right of way for the detour and
the route followed was .the
cheapest way to go. "In
addition", Tapper said, "Gulf
county and its citizens have a
road they can use every day.
The detour would have to be
removed, at extra expense,
after the construction was
Tapper said he traded less
than 11 acres to Rish and Core
because it divided his proper-
ty at Simmons Bayou. "I
traded them five acres of
marsh next to the water and
6.2 acres across the road
which included swamp land
and a borrow pit for their
property which would square
off my property".
Tapper almost broke down
at one point in his rebuttal to
Taunton saying, "You're writ-
ing some new law. In this
nation charges are made be-
fore the proper authorities and
the evidence weighed and not
a one-sided innuendo against a
group of people with no oppor-
tunity to question under oath

Where Are Text Books?

SLeon County school board
:members and administi'tors
:appear to be caught between a
rock and a hard place in trying
io placate irate parents com-
'plaining about the lack of text-
'books for their children.
'. If it is any consolation, they
tare not alone, similar com-
plaints are being heard
,throughout the state. Dade
County school children do not

County children are in the
iame boat and the situation is

: Much of the blame lies with
the Legislature, which, al-

:with inflation and actually cut

textbook funding by about 16
percent. The cost of textbooks,
meanwhile, increased by
about 50 percent.
In an effort to cope with the
situation, county school sys-
tems have gone to buying
"classroom sets" of text-
books, which means one book
per desk, rather than one book
per child. It is an awkward
and unworkable solution and
is further aggravated by a
huge and costly busing pro-
gram forced on us by federal
Ron Dearden, assistant
superintendent for instruc-
tion, says that students who
want to take a textbook home
can do so by checking it out of
the classroom after school and

returning it before classes re-

That could work, although
not well, if the student walks
or has his own transportation
to school..But under the forced
busing, in which about 50

Fair and

Fun Day

November 6
With flags flying in the
breeze, and the sound of music
in the air, the Port St. Joe
Band 'Parents' Association
will kick off its first annual
Band Fair and Fun Day on
Saturday, November 6, at the
football stadium in Port St.
Joe. Beginning at 11:00 a.m.,
the day-long activities will
include things to see and do
and enjoy by all the family.
Among the highlights will be
two band concerts by the
Band, a fish-fry, turkey shoot,
concession booths, games for

boys and girls of all ages, a
donation drawing, a rummage
sale of new and nearly-new
items, a 'greenhouse' booth,'
arts and crafts booth featuring
ceramics and other items, a
cake sale, helium balloons,
and many other attractions.
Ray Smith, Band Director,
members of the Band, Flag
5 and Ri.e Corps and the Band
,1 Preants' Association will be
on hand all day to serve you,
and invite everyone in Port St.
Joe and the surrounding areas
to come and have a fun-filled
Proceeds from the Fair and
Fun Day will be used exclu-
sively to send the Band and
drill teams to Valdosta, Geor-

methodology has changed...
I think.it would be a step back
to go to a textbook for every
child in every class."
This "change in methodo-
logy" has been going on for
better than 10 years, accord-
ing to Dearden. We might add,
it was about 10 years ago that
pupil test scores began to drop
noticeably also. It might be
wise for educators to reconsi-
der their "methodology."
And parents, and other tax-
payers-for they are affected
by the adequacy of our edu-
cation system also-had bet-
ter zero in on our legislators,
who fund education, and on
our Congressmen, who can do
something about the wasteful
expense of spending money on
transportation rather than
education if they want to.
The school board has ap-
proved the setting up of a
committee of teachers, princi-
pals, parents, students and
administrative personnel to
study the textbook problem.
They might consider as one
alternative a book rental sys-
tem, which was an accepted
fact up until a few years ago,
as a means of providing ade-
quate texts for students.

to the Editor

Dear Wesley,
We left St. Joe 26 months
ago. However, I suppose it will
always be home to us. And
Friday night provided an op-
portunity for us to return
home and visit for a few hours
with our many friends.
We sat on the Chipley side of
the field the first half (that's
only fair since Ronnie is on the
Chipley team) before moving
to the St. Joe side for the
second half of the game.
During that first half I
could not enjoy the game, be-
cause of what I saw across the
field. Half-filled stands in St.
Joe, I could not believe it. Sure
we had heard there had been
some problems. But I lived in
St. Joe for 16 years. During
that time we faced many pro-
blems, misunderstandings
and hard feelings. But we
worked together, as a group of
people should, and overcame
those adversities.
A good business man can not
be successful without the sup-
port of the public. A great
leader can not accomplish his
mission without devoted fol-

lowers. Neither can a ball
team be a winner without
loyal fans.
I know the people of St. Joe
and some are saying we can't
win with just a handful dress-
ed out. As I looked across that
field I saw no less than 12
young men, in purple jerseys,
that I had the privilege, of
coaching in Dixie Youth and
Dixie Boys baseball. And I
don't want anyone to tell me
they are not winners. I know
better. You show them you
care, you get out there and
back them and you can be sure
they will be winners.
Support your local officials,
your schools, your churches
and one another. Forget your
petty differences and make St.
Joe a great place to live.
God bless you all.

Dear Editor:
The week of 10-4-76, I wrote
your column about the City
and Union negotiation, and
you so graciously gave me the
answer that the City needed

the experteese of a labor
lawyer to negotiation. Well
this shows me that the City
Commissioners doesn't want
to negotiate a contract for the
City employees because as I
pointed out to the Mayor to
negotiate a contract you need
two paritys that want to come
to friendly liveable terms with
each other. Because you can-
not negotiate anything that is
against the law.
If the City is not trying to
bog down negotiations and
keep from giving the City
employees a decent wage and
benefits, why did they spend
$18,812.56, before the elections
for the Union was ever held.
Also, why was the union
representative told at City
Hall on 10-18-76 that the City
would fight the Union, all the
way, even if they had to write
"script" to operate the City
Why Mr. Editor? Science
you are a City Commissioner,
are the City fathers so opposed
to collective bargaining since
the City negotiation team has
been told numerous times that
the Union does not want to run
the City, only to protect the

said in your answer to me
before that the word black-
mail was the Union words, you
are either uninformed or try-

one of the City negotiating
teams used these words first
to the Union representative at
the last negotiation session.
Also a taxpayer asked the
Mayor about the amount of
money that had been spent in
negotiations and he was told
that the Union had not made
any proposals. This is false,
the Union has made proposals
to the City several times only

Pres. LU14963 USWA

country editor who likes to wash the dirt from
between his toes every once in a while. I don't.
think I stepped on the ground from the time I left
home until I got back.
Back when we wereembroiledin the Bay of
Pigs invasion and had the world accusing us of
invading Cuba, hardly anybody noticed that
Cuba had invaded the United States. During our
short stay in Miami and our restricted circle of
maneuvering about, it seemed that eight out of
ten of the people we ran into were Cubans.
Cubans are running the place.
I do have to admit they are doing a good job
of it.
We stayed at the Fontainebleau Hotel where
the convention was being held. We were there
along with Jerry Sullivan, Mr. and Mrs. Tom
Coldewey, Frank Pate, Mr. and Mrs. Charlie
Brock and Mr.'iand Mrs, Mike Wright. It seemed
the only Americans in the entire 1200 room hotel
were the delegates to the convention and some
of them were Cuban.
The Cubans serve the tables, run the offices,
cook the meals, and take care of everything.
One thing I noticed right off in Miami and
that was that the prices were high. Filet mignon,
which costs about $8.00 in these parts, was $12.95
in Miami. Frenchie and I had a cold drink and
split a piece of cheese cake Saturday afternoon
in the coffee shop of the Fontainebleau and it cost
us $2.65.
While the prices are high, the quality of the
food was great and the quantity would be enough
for anyone. I couldn't eat all they put before me
on any occasion. One little tidbit, I didn't see a
piece of margarine during the three days spent
there. Butter was served with every meal and
not creamery butter either; it was real butter.
Muhammad Ali is making a movie in Miami
and he was staying at the Fontainbleau. While
Frenchie and I were in the coffee shop Saturday
evening, Ali came in and sat down on a stool next
to us and ordered himself a bowl of soup. He had
his baby, presented to him by his current girl
friend, along with him. The dozen or so people in
the coffee shop began to drift his way and admire
his baby. Very few paid much attention to Ali.
Frenchie was one of two who asked him for his
autograph and he grumbled, "People won't
leave me alone so I can eat my soup". He signed
the card, though.
One thing I noticed about Ali, he didn't
laugh, he didn't smile, he didn't even grin. With
all that money, success and whatever else he
has, he seemed to be a sad and disgruntled
We also saw Joe Higgins, the "highway
patrolman" who use to do the Dodge commer-
cials and is now pushing CB radios. Higgins
spoke on safety at the convention and used his
usual manner to keep everybody laughing.
Governor Askew spoke Friday afternoon and
hardly anybody was on hand to listen. I'd say
that of the 1,000 delegates there, less than 300
heard his talk, which had no competition from
committee meetings.
We enjoyed the trip. We enjoyed seeing
something we had never seen before. We even
ogled the yachts which parked beside the ba-'- of
the creek across the road from the Fon'd. ie-
bleau. We marveled at the way the rich lived,
ordering meals delivered to the yachts from the
hotel across the road. We even whistled in a
hick-like way at the $350.00 suits, the $25.00
neckties, the $35.00 shirts and the $125.00 shoes
on "sale" at the exclusive men's shop in the
lower lobby of the Fontainebleau. We acted so
"country" that we were even glad to get out of
that place and get back home where someone
will open a door for you without expecting you to
cross his palm with considerable change.

Taunton Claims

had taken his part of the
payment in property.
Rish pointed out he and
Core had purchased the pro-
perty at Simmons Bayou sev-
eral years before Tapper had
purchased the adjoining pro-
perty. He vouched for Tap-
per's reason for the trade and
offered to sell Taunton the
waterfront property which he
had said was worth $60,000 for
$10,000 "and you can pay for
it any way you want. Then you
can make the extra $50,000 you
claim it's worth for yourself".
Taunton had claimed the
property swap was for Rish
and Core to persuade the
County Comimission to request
the DOT to pave the golf
course road for a detour and
later use by the club.
Wewahitchka attorney Dav-
id Carl Gaskin then asked for
the floor and said, "I sympa-
thize with the County Commis-
sion for having to listen to this
garbage. It appears as if the
whole blooming works of gov-
ernment is being taken over
by one man".
Gaskin went on to describe
how First American farms
grew and died in the county
with the resulting land pur-
chase by Rish and others. "As
for Kenner", he said, "Hamil-
ton Kenner had no part of the
sale. He was manager of MK
Ranches and the state stopped
him from farming his proper-
ty at which time Kenner told,
the state to allow him to use it
or buy it". The state later

bought it as a part of the River
corridor on the Apalachicola
Gaskin went on to say, "If I
was going to bribe anybody it
wouldn't be Billy Joe Rish. If I
were to offer it, I know he
would have me arrested the
next day for the attempt."
As for Core, Gaskin describ-
ed him as "Mr. Integrity".
"He has had integrity all his
life and it will be one of the
things he will still have when
he dies."
"As for Tapper, I don't know
of anybody who ever claimed
Tapper stole from them. He's
just a hard-nosed business
man who has spent his life in
business and helping people
and Gulf County. The only
thing wrong with Tapper",
Gaskin said, "is that his body
just isn't big enough to cover
his heart."
E. F. Gunn, president of the
St. Joseph Bay Country Club
stated that the club members
are paying for the club with
monthly dues. "We pay over
$1,000 a month on that loan",
Gunn said. "The taxpayer is
paying nothing for the golf
course, nor has he ever".
After all the counter argu-
ments were over Taunton left
the court room and didn't
return. He .didn't make a
specific charge nor ask for
any prosecution. He had come
to explain his four telephone
calls and .spent over an hour

Fall Is Here

- Time to

Plant WinterAnnuals

By: Dr. Robert J. Black
Ext. Urban Horticulturist
The Fall gardening season
is close at hand so it's time to
get out of the summer dol-
drums and start thinking
about your winter garden. It's
time to begin planting winter
flowering annuals.
Many of the annual flowers
which thrive in northern gar-
dens can be successfully
grown in Florida, however,
the season at which they are
grown is quite different than
in northern states. Most an-
nuals are classified into two
groups--cool season annuals
and warm season annuals.
Florida's cool season is from
October to April, thus we grow
many annuals during the win-
ter which would normally be
planted in the spring in the
north. As long as the proper
planting time is considered,
home gardeners can produce
many colorful annuals all
winter. Remember, however,
the cool season annuals you

plant in the fall must be able to
endure frost if they are plant-
ed outdoors.
Annuals which can be plant-
ed in October include sweet
alyssum, browallia, calen-
dula, candytuft, gaillardia,
gypsophila, nasturtium,
pansy, petunias, phlox, sweet-
pea, verbena and viola.
Annual flowers have many
uses in the garden. They are
probably best displayed in
front of shrubbery borders. By
choosing annuals of different
heights, deep flower borders
can be produced. Plant the
taller species at the rear and
progressively shorter varie-
ties in front. Use colors which
blend well and avoid too many
varieties having different
colors. Most often large
groups of only one or two
colors are much more effec-
tive than small beds of many
colors. Many low growing an-
nuals make effective edgings
for walks and drives and don't
forget to use annuals for win-

Annuals can be planted as
seeds or obtained as bedding
plants which can be trans-
planted into the garden. Bed-

The Kick-off
With the season half over it appears the only thing
that could keep Michigan from taking the number one spot
in the polls, would be a loss to Ohio State in the finale.
Always'a possibility. But the Wolverines have looked
impressive up until now. More bad news for the Big Ten
fans; the Michigan team is comparably young-a number
of them will be back next year. A win for Ohio State would
make a successful year for Woody Hayes-so you can
believe he will be ready. This would be true even if both
teams had had losing seasons. This rivalry ranks with
Oklahoma Texas, Alabama Auburn and Army Navy
for eing among the most intense in college sports.
Tradition, "bragging sites" and everything goes into this
one. And it's usually worth making plans to see, even if
only on the tube.
As easy as it is today, to find fault with TV in
general-and the way it is used-we find it difficult to
fault the way it enables us to enjoy sports which very few
of us would be able to see otherwise.

working for the benefit of his
patients and devising a great
sanitary invention calculated
to be of ever-increasing bene-
fit to humanity."
The Governor also noted
that Gorrie's .?scientific ef-
forts were made, not for
monetary reason, but to alle-
viate the suffering of his
Dr. Gorrie came to the
small seaside town of Apa-
lachicola in 1833 from Charles-
ton, Carolina.
After years of experimen-
tation, he succeeded in pro-
ducing small blocks of ice,

which he first demonstrated
publicly in July, 1850. He in-
tended his invention to aid
fever victims.
He received a patent for his
ice machine in 1851.
At the John Gorrie State
Museum, a new replica of the
machine was recently put on

In conjunction with the Apa-
lachicola Seafood Festival,
the Gorrie Museum will be
open without charge to the
public Saturday, October 30,
from nine a.m. to five p.m.
Recently renovated, the
Museum houses displays of
Gorrie's life and times, as well
as the history of Apalachicola.

The regulation prohibits the
use or possession of any semi-
automatic rifle having a
magazine capacity of more
than five rounds of ammuni-

"The regulation was adopted
by the Commission," a
spokesman said, "after the
regulation summary booklets
were printed, and a lot of
hunters may not be aware of

Several key mistakes gave
the Chipley Tigers a 24-0 win
over the Sharks Friday night
in Shark stadium.
At the onset it looked as if
the Tigers had a little bit
bigger piece than they could
chew. After the Tigers were
forced to punt on their first
series of downs, Keith
Neel pulled in the ball on the
Sharks' five yard line and
carried a wall of blockers with
him for a 95 yard touchdown
run. But, the first of several
point costing mistakes took
place, and the ball was called
back on a penalty, and the
touchdown nullified.
For the remainder of the
first half it was a defensive

game, with neither team
showing any real momentum
until late in the half when the
Tigers put on a drive that
ehded with quarterback Jon-
athan Masker scoring on a
one-yard keeper with less than
a minute to go in the half. The
kick was good by Woodham
and the Tigers led at halftime,
The Sharks came back in
the third period, or so it
seemed as they drove the ball
all the way to the Chipley
16-yard line, when a fumble in
the back field was picked up
by Tiger Bruce Robinson.

With nothing but daylight in
front of him, he scampered 86
yards for the touchdown.
In the fourth quarter, the
Sharks stopped a Tiger drive
short of the goal; when Chip-
ley' kicker, Woodham, was
brought on the field and suc-
cessfully kicked a 38 yard field
The scoring was capped off
by Ricky Washington, who
picked off a Shark pass and
rambled 40 yards for the final
score of the night.

THE CITY OF APALACHICOLA as it appeared in 1837 during its heyday as the second
greatest port on the Gulf. The three-story warehouses along the waterfront held cotton
brought downriver by steamboats from the rich plantations of Georgia and Alabama for
shipment by sailing vessels to the textile mills of the North and Europe.

Apalach Honors Oysters

at Seafood Festival Sat.

Down through the years, for
more than anyone can remem-
ber, Apalachicola has had a
love affair with the sea.
The degree of its ardor be-
comes apparent during the
course of the annual Florida
Seafood Festival, the ultimate

in marine entertainment on
Florida's frontier Gulf Coast-
a "must attend" and "gotta be
there" event in the southeast
for many years.
Once a year, this quiet
fishing village of 3,500 people,
wakes from its peaceful slum-

ber at the delta of the 4pa-
lachicola, goes "en fete", and
invites the world to come and
visit them for a day.
There's something for the
entire family, and about the
only money you can spend is in
getting there, and buying your

dinner ($2.50 $3.50) but
what a dinner! The churches
and civic clubs of the area
establish food booths in Bat-
tery Park-the focus of the
celebration-and serve some
of everything that swims in
the clean waters of the bay
and gulf. The traditional mul-
let fillet, hushpuppies, baked
beans and cole slaw; heaping
seafood platters of flounder,
shrimp, oysters, scallops and
deviled crab; steaming
shrimp gumbo; mounds of
succulent boiled crabs and
shrimp "in the rough"; and
the incomparable, iced Apa-
lachicola oysters on the half
The day's activities will
start on a quiet note with the
dedication of a neiw marine
laboratory by Harmon
Shields, Executive Director of
the Department of Natural
Resources. Then the grand
parade at 10:00 through the
downtown streets of the city,
and an inauguration cere-,
mony on the court house steps.
Dinner in Battery Park fol-
lows to the accompaniment of
band concert. The marine
events crowd the afternoon
program, with an oyster eat-
ing contest, an oyster shuck-
ing contest, the blue crab
race, and new this year, the
castnet throwing contest.
The procession for the bless-
ing of the fleet begins down-
town, following a concert by
the carillons of the First
Methodist Church. ,As the
procession moves slowly down
Market Street, the bells of the
churches of the city will ring,
and the battery of mortars at
river front will begin firing to
mark the stations of the cross.
The ancient ritual takes
place at bay front, Battery
Park. On the signal of the
harbor master, the mortars
will fire a barrage of signal
flares, and the fleet will come
down the estuary line astern,
to parade for the ceremony. A
solemn, but colorful event,
that you will not want to miss.
The ceremony of the bless-
ing will be followed by an
awards ceremony for the
fleet, and another for the
Second Apalachicola River
Canoe Race which will have
begun at the dam at Chatta-
hoochee, on October 29th,
Evening activities will in-
clude a gospel sing beginning
at 7:00; a street dance begin-
ning at 8:00; and the Grand
Ball beginning at 9:00.
There are unscheduled acti-
vities throughout the day.
Free bus tours to the historic
sites and buildings in the city;
a street carnival for the
kiddies; a giant flea market
and art show on the downtown
streets, where you can dis-
cover all of the fabled trea-
sures of Aladdin's cave; open
house at the John Gorrie Mu-
seum; open house at the new
facilities of the Department of
Natural Resources; and edu-
cational and commercial ex-
hibits in Battery Park and the
Gorrie Museum grounds-
plus all of the color and ex-
citement of a large and care-
free crowd in a carnival.mood.
Whether you are looking for
a quiet day on the coast and a
memorable seafood dinner; or
you wish to try some of every-
thing going-the place to be on
Saturday, October 30th, is
Apalachicola and the Florida
Seafood Festival.
