Industry-- Deep Water Port- Fine People Safest Beaches in Florida




As it was for most associa-
tions, 1976 was an excellent
year for Citizens Federal Sav-
ings and Loan Association,
Charles Stevens, manager,
reported last week. Savings
deposits increased by
$1,151,416.03 and loan demand
held up well' throughout the
year. Savings customers re-
ceived the highest dividends
paid in the history of the
Association. In addition, sav-
ings funds were channeled
into home and other type
mortgages making a signifi-
cant contribution to the-local
"Prospects for 1977 have all
the earmarks of another good
year," Stevens said. "Much,
of course, depends on the
initial moves made by the new
Carter Administration."
Stevens said Citizens Fede-
ral is entering the new year in
its strongest position ever. At
year-end 1976, assets totalled
$9,472,210.77 up $1,268,685.63
over the previous year. In the
last 12 months the Association
paid $484,438.06 in interest to
their savings depositors. After
paying savers and covering its
operating expenses, the
:Association was still able to
put aside $93,042.52 for re-
serves and surplus, which now
totals a healthy $861,030.53.
The Association opened for
business 20 years ago with,
assets of $200,000.

"and Loan Association of Port
St. Joe celebrated its 20th .
anniversary with a dinner for
its officers, directors and em-,
ployees at the Hut on Febru-

The Port St. Joe City Com-
mission will send a delegation
to Atlanta next Thursday in
search of some federal money
which has been promised but
not yet delivered by the En-
vironmental Protection Agen-
cy.- .
Last August, the EPA prom-
ised to deliver on a previously
promised $4.3 million grant
for construction of Port St.
Joe's Wastewater Treatment
Plant within 60 days. The
money still has not been
The EPA promised the
money to the City before
planning was ever started on
the facility to encourage con-
servation of land in this area
from having to build three
separate treatment facilities
for the two industries and the
City, who now use the facili-
ties of the Wastewater plant.
As a matter of fact, the EPA
-pushed the City and two
industries into the project.
In the meantime, the guard
has changed in Atlanta and
with it, the attitude toward the
grant to Port St. Joe.
The problem now is a mat-
ter of designation. The State
equivalent of the EPA classi-
fies the local plant as an
industrial treatment center
Which has one set of criteria
'Tor condition of outfall water.
The EPA classifies the plant
as a domestic treatment facil-
ity which has another set of
outfall specifications. The
plant meets the state outfall
requirements for industrial
plants but does not meet the
federal requirements for do-
mestic plant outfall.
The problem is that the EPA
cannot give grants to indus-
trial plants, hence the local
designation as a domestic
facility; if you grasp all' of
The trip next Thursday will
be to try and get some of the
rules relaxed as to require-
ments for outfall content un-

der the EPA rules for domes-
tic plants.
If the Commission is suc-
cessful in this endeavor they
will have put on the best act
this side of James Whitmore's
"Give Em Hell Harry" and'
get more money for about the
same performance time.
Also included in the deal is a
tentative agreement by the
EPA to bend the rules if
periodic tests are made for
toxicity of the local outfall and
also an agreement to make
changes to the plant to meet
EPA standards for outfall if
technology ever becomes
available for doing so. The
plant is presently doing as
well as science and machines
know how to make it do so far
as treatment is concerned.
Also the EPA agrees to pro-
vide the money for these
changes if they are ever
The Commission came to an
agreement Tuesday as to how
much each customer in Oak
Grove would be charged for
water and sewer services
from a new system which will
be built in the area this year.
The Commission met with
members of the Gulf County
Commission last Thursday
night in an informal session. to,
discuss the matter.: At this
meeting County Commission
chairman Everett Owens put
it to the City Commission that
they wished to provide a
system which would pay for
itself, give adequate service
and still be within the finan-
cial means of the average
Tuesday, the Commission
came up with a price of $8.50
for the services, including
service, billing and mainten-
ance by the City of Port St.
Clerk Mike Wright gave the
Commission figures showing
the cost of the service, antici-

pated service costs and added
a 20 percent surcharge to
cover any major repairs to the
system in the future.
The County has said pay-
ment of the construction loan
to Farmers Home Adminis-
tration will cost each cus-
tomer approximately $5.49 a
month for an average bill of
about $13.99 a month.
The City will present these
figures to the County at their
next meeting on Tuesday,

February 8.

Historians Begin Pushing

for Museum Expansion

The St. Joseph Historical Society is, embarking on a
project to add to the historical display at Constitution State
Park at the southern end of Port St. Joe. The Society
prepared a resolution this past week and presented it to the
City Commission Tuesday night for their endorsement,
calling for a major addition to the Constition Museum, now
operated by the State of Florida in the Park.
Jesse Stone, acting for the Society told the commission
that the reason for the park's existence is to mark the signing
of Florida's first Constitution, which was drafted here in
December of 1838 on the site where the museum now sits.
Stone said the present museum set-up offers very little
information and gives very little space to the drafting and
signing of the state's first Constitution.
Stone told the Commission, "What we are proposing, and
hope you will join us in, is construction of an entirely new
wing to the present museum and make it a replica of the
original Constitution Hall where the original Constitution was
Stone toll the. Commission the Society is asking for the
replica to be built adjacent to the west end of the present
Constitution Museum and place a scene inside the building

depicting the signing of the Constitution. "We would also like
to see more displays concerning the constitution inside",
Stone said, "along with portraits of all the original signers
and a replica of the original document put on display."
Stone told the city Commission, "We feel too little
attention and space is given over to the original signing,
which is a major event in the history of our state".
Stone said the Society would have the State Park Service
construct an exact replica of the old Constitution Hall on the
site, reconstructing the old hall faithfully both inside and
Stone pointed out that presently, the Museum dedicates
most of its space and emphasis to life in early Port St. Joe
and early Florida. "This is fine", Stone said. "we need to be
reminded of the things the museum reminds us of, but we feel
emphasis needs to,be placed more emphatically on the
signing of the Constitution".
The Commission endorsed the Society's idea and agreed
to draw up a resolution to the State Park Board requesting
expansion of the park museum complex to include
reconstruction of the old Convention Hall.

Girl Scouts Start Cookie Sales

Girl Scouts in the Apalachee
Bend Council, which includes
Port St. Joe, kicked off their
annual Girl Scout Cookie sale
Friday of last week.
Girl Scouts from Holmes to
Taylor counties began ringing
doorbells at 3:00 p.m., on
Friday and will continue
through February 12, offering
the cookies for sale. They have
five delicious varieties of the
sweets for sale: mint, short-

bread, sandwich cremes, pea-
nut butter sandwich and pea-
nut butter patties. The cookies
sell for $1.25 a box.
When customers buy Girl
Scout cookies, they not only
are receiving a delicious pro-
duct, but are also supporting
Girl Scouting in their com-
munity. Profits from the sale
directly benefit girls in a
variety of ways. Each troop
receives 121/2 cents per box
sold for troop program sup-

plies, projects of camp-outs.
Girls may also pay their own
way to residence camp by
earning cookie certificates
which are awarded on the
basis of the number of cookies
Cookie profits realized by
the Council go directly into the
camping program. A camp for
All Seasons, the new residence
on Lake Talquin, was built
largely with profits from cook-
ie 'sales. Camp Eleanor on St.

Andrews Bay in Panama City
is maintained by cookie
money. Tents, canoes 'and
cooking equipment used by
the girls for week end camp-
ing are all paid for with cookie
Members of Girl Scout
Troop 248 are shown in the

Girl Scout cookies as they
began their sale Friday. Their
leader is Mrs. Bunny Miller.

shiver in the national treasury.

Sheriff's Department, at 1:30
Thursday morning, an emer-

was broken and the captain
was unable to control her. At
that time the boat was several
miles out in the bay.
Captain Roy Marshall, who
also heard the call, reported
that he would go out and tow
the Po-Jo in if he had some
help. Deputies Jack Davila

door step of the office. At first, I was furious
that someone would abandon a small pet rock,
such as was left on my. door step in such cold
weather, without even a blanket on to keep it
warm. I thought someone had played a cold,
cruel, heartless trick on my new pet rock and
had thrown it away, unwanted, not caring what
happened to it. But a small note attached,
explained that the pet rock had been especially
reared for me, prepared for me, and presented
by an anonymous friend from Howard Creek.
Mine isn't your usual pet rock. When I saw
the rock in its trundle, lying on my door step, I
thought it was your ordinary mongrel pet rock
which was the misbegotten offspring of an
agate and piece of sandstone. It could be of no
earthly use to anyone because of its mixed

That's like saying a person can trace his
ancestry back directly to Adam. He comes
from the original line of people. My pet rock
comes from the original rock from Colorado
where rocks began.
There's no use beating a path to my
doorway trying to talk me out of my pet rock.
It's not often one comes across a thoroughbred
like this, so I am going to hang on to it.
In due time, my pet rock is bound to turn

One of the fringe benefits of being editor of
The Star is getting invited to all the banquets
and special award programs designed to
recognize our young people who excell at one
endeavor or another.
I guess, that in the past years, I have
attended at least 20 annual football banquets
and they never cease to be a pleasant evening,
as well as a good meal.
I don't know how they do it but, even
though the banquets offer the same awards and
kudos each year, the banquets are still
different from year to year. The award
speeches are usually unique to the situation
and individual and the speakers, even though
they almost invariably talk about football,
seem to get a special twist into their message
that tells the young men and their guests that
there is more to life than playing or football,
but that both play a measureable influence in

what the young man becomes..
People who coach young people are special
individual. Whether the coaching is little league
baseball, swimming, track, football, basketball,
tennis or reading; those who coach young
people almost invariably are interested in the
improvement of the kid he is teaching. It is
more than a job or a duty performed.
Maybe some of these coaches especially
the volunteer ones don't know the fine points
of what they are trying to teach. They may not
even be very good coaches. From what we
have observed in the different organizations
here in Port St. Joe, the kid benefits most from
knowing the person involved in his particular
activity cared enough about his welfare to give
up his time he could be- spending for his own
pleasure or pursuits. The young person seems
to benefit more from observing this trait in
adults than he does in the finesse the coach or
teacher is trying to put across.
I had three little boys in my life. They were
pistols. The experience I got from raising them
made me say more than once, "It takes
someone who doesn't have little boys to love
them." Of course this observation was face-
tious. One sure sign of someone loving little
boys is someone who will take up their time
with them: especially those who belong to
-someone else.

In Testing Teaching Concept

It's Only Your


"Lending Lingo"
Comptroller of Florida

Most terms associated
with borrowing money are
well-known by the average
person. But there are a few
which could pose a problem
in certain credit situations if
you are not aware of their
meanings. They are part of
the less frequently used, of-
ten misunderstood, vocabu-
lary of credit. Everyone who
obtains loans or buys on
credit should know these
terms and their meanings.
One term with which the
layman is often unfamiliar is
the term "chattel mort-
gage". This type of mort-
gage is a legal document ini
which the borrower's per-
sonal property is put up as
security for payment of a
debt, but is usually left in the
possession of the borrower
as long as installment pay-
ments are kept up.
Another misunderstood
term is "conditional sales
contract." This is a type of
installment agreement
under which the borrower
does not legally own the pro-
duct until the final payment
is made. In some areas the
borrower must make pay-

ments whether or not he or
she is satisfied with the pur-
A third term which hasn't
seen much notoriety is "dol-
lar cost". This term refers to
the total price of credit in-
cluding service charges and
interest. Essentially, it re-
fers to the difference be-
tween what you obtain as a
loan or merchandise and
what you pay back.
Finally, the term "right of
rescission" is particularly
significant in this state since
it refers to the right of the
consumer to cancel a con-
tract under certain circum-
stances within three days of
signing. This right is usually
used in home improvement
contracts, and the home im-
provement contractor must
indicate this right to you in
your contract. The same also
applies, according to a Fed-
eral Trade Commission rule,
to sales made by door-to-
door salesmen.
The more you know about
the vocabulary of credit, the
better you'll understand the
procedure when you decide
to borrow. (AFNS)

Harmony and unity was the
order of the day Thursday at
the annual meeting of the
Northwest Florida Planning
and Advisory Council held in
Delegates to the regional
council-representing city and
county governments in a 10
county regional stretching
from Walton to Jefferson
counties were unanimous on-
the following points:
-That the regional councils
direct a substantial portion of
its energies toward economic
and industrial planning and
-That a corridor in Jackson
County stretching from Cot-
tondale and Alford on the
west, including Marianna,
Grand Ridge, and encompas-
sing Sneads and its Apalachi-
coal River port Facility be
designated as the region's
primary Growth Center.
-That the Council head-
quarters be moved from Bay
County and relocated at a site
more geographically central
to the district.
-That strength for rural
counties lies in unity and that
any and all attempts to split
the district be resisted.
Interest was high as some 90
delegates, economic develop-
ment specialists, sat through
the day-long session to ap-
prove programs aimed toward
developing plans and obtain-
ing state and federal grants
that will spur economic deve-
lopment in the region while at
the same time preserving the
broad agricultural, forestry,
seafood and tourism base of
the area.

for loans mad3 by FmHA.
At present, the USDA agen-
cy will offer loan guarantees
only under its single family
housing program. FmHA will
continue to make single fam-
ily housing loans with its own
funds. It will also continue to
make but not guarantee loans
for rural rental housing, farm

Mr. Greene, explains.
Loans may be used to buy,
build, improve, repair, or
rehabilitate houses and relat-
ed facilities, and to provide
adequate water and waste
disposal systems.
Guaranteed loans will be
made only to applicants with
moderate income, defined by

Loans to be guaranteed are
limited to 97 percent of the

market value of homes and
sites for the first $25,000 and 95
percent of the loan in excess of
$25,000. The borrower must
have equity from his own
resources, in the form of cash
or land for the down payment,
notes Mr. Greene.
The top limit for a guaran-

resident of Florida is $33,000.
The maximum repayment
period is 33 years.
Mr. Greene also reports that
FmHA regulations provide
lenders who obtain guarantees
for rural housing loans options
for selling, assigining, or sel-

FmHA regulations require
that the lender making a

be a local lender--located in or
doing business in the area
where the house is located.

Electric bills go up
when the temperature drops
Already it's being called the terrible winter of '77.
And one result of the extremely cold weather we've
experienced will be higher electric bills for all of us. For
power consumption is up. Way up!
The reason for this is primarily heating. During colder
weather, you can actually double the amount of heat
you use in any one month. Your water heater works
harder too. And, since days are shorter, you use more
electricity for lighting.
So make an extra effort to conserve power whenever
possible. Set your heating thermostat at the lowest
comfortable setting for you. Watch your other appliance
usage, especially your range and laundry appliances.
Use hot water sparingly.
And, for other conservation suggestions, pick up a
copy of our booklet, "How to Conserve Your Electric
Dollar," at your nearest Florida Power office.
With the cost of all energy going up, it's important to
conserve in every way you can.

In any type of landscape
development, maintenance is
a very important considera-
tion. This phase of landscap-
ing and gardening should be
planned in the original design.
Design and arrangement
should not be too fancy. Use-
less curves, odd-shaped flower
beds and hedges only add to
confusion and to maintenance
Avoid a scattered arrange-
ment of beds, shrubs, trees
and garden features. Every
object in the garden should
have some reason for being
there. Spotty design is difficult
to maintain. Group plantings
of shrubs and flowers are
more attractive and much
easier to care for.
Steep terraces are quite a
problem when lawn mowing is
necessary. Long, gentle slopes
look more natural and allow
free movement of lawn-mow-
ing equipment. A retaining
wall oftentimes is the more
economical method in the long
The choice of plant material
will definitely affect the main-
tenance work. Native mater-
ial requires less upkeep. Try
to choose some of the slow
growing and dwarf type
shrubs, particularly for small
properties because pruning of
the shrubs can become quite a
Present-day gardeners are
using less of the clipped-hedge
type of plant such a ligustrum,
privet, boxwood and others.
Dwarf yaupon, azaleas and
holly are some shrubs which
require a minimum of prun-
A walkway that is flush with
the ground with no edging
material is much easier to
maintain than one that has a
flower border or some other
low-edging material.
More maintenance is re-
quired for flowers on a square
foot basis than for any other
plant in the garden. However,
flowers are usually the most
desired plant in the landscape
because of color. Select flow-
ering plants such as daylilies
which have minimum main-
tenance requirements.

THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla. THURSDAY, FEB. 3, 1977 In Apalachicola River and Tributaries

Game Fish Tagged by Biologists

If you catch a fish with a
strip of plastic protruding
from its back, there are people,
who want to know about it.
The U. S. Fish and Wildlife
Service, in cooperation with
the Florida State Game and
Fish Commission, has ini-
tiated a five-year study of the
Apalachicola River and some
of its tributaries. The title of
the Panama City-based opera-
tion is "Apalachicola River
Fishery Project".
The purpose of this project
is to determine the condition
of the fish stocks, the location
.of spawning and nursery
areas, the migratory habits
and the degree of direct utili-
zation of the fishery resources.
This will allow the biologists to
assess the need for manage-
ment and will provide data to
initiate development of a
management program for
consideration of fish resources
in the scheme of development
of the Apalachicola River

One of the primary concerns
of the project is the move-
ments and habits of anadro-
mous fish. Anadromous fish
are those which spend time in
salt water but return to fresh
water to spawn. This group of
fish in the Apalachicola River
includes striped bass, Ala-
bama shad, sturgeon and skip-
jack herring, all of which are
being tagged in an effort to
learn more of their habits.
The fishery biologists are
spending much time and effort
in tagging these fish, but
without the help of the sport
'fishermen, their efforts could
be in vain. It is important that
the fishermen be on the look-
out for these tags and to get
the necessary information to
the biologists.
Methods of obtaining fish
include the use of gill nets,
beach seines, larval nets,
trawls and electroshocking.
All fish captured are mea-

sured and returned to the
Fish and Wildlife biologists
are tagging striped bass, stur-
geon, Alabama shad and skip-
jack herring along the entire
length of the Apalachicola
River from Jim Woodruff
Dam on the Georgia-Florida
line to the town of Apalachi-
coal and will tag year-round
for the next five years. The
tags are yellow plastic, spag-
hetti-like streamers which
protrude approximately two
inches from the fishes' back
just beow the dorsal fin.
Anyone catching a fish with
a tag should either call, col-
lect, 1-904-763-1059, or write
Apalachicola River Fishery
Project, 1612 June Avenue,
Panama City, 32401, and give
the number printed on the tag,
date and location caught. The
tag is the fisherman's trophy
as the biologists only want the
above information and not the
tag itself.

Senators Here

Senator Pat Thomas and
Senator Jim Glisson will be in
Port St. Joe Friday morning
at 10 o'clock at the Port St. Joe
Jr.-Sr. High School. Their
purpose is to present public
awareness concerning the
three-year mandatory sen-
tence bill and aid to victims of
violent crimes.

Under the law, social secur-
ity disability payments can be
made to eligible workers and
their families if the worker is
severely disabled and not
expected to be able to do any
substantial gainful work for a
year or more.
"Medically that means a
physical or mental impair-
ment that is expected to last,
or has lasted, for at least 12
months--or is expected to re-
sult in death," Robinson said.
The actual decision on whe-
ther or not a worker is
disabled within the meaning of
the social security law is made
in Florida Disability Determi-
nation Services by two disabi-
lity evaluation specialists, one
of them a doctor, according to
In most cases they reach a
decision based on the medical

reports from sources listed by
the worker-the doctors, hos-
pitals, and other institutions
that have treated the disabi-
lity. The worker is responsible
for charges, if there are any,
for these reports.
"Or they may need addi-
tional medical information,
tests, or examinations to
make the decision," Robinson
said. "The Government pays
for those."
The disability evaluation
specialists decide whether or
not workers can be expected
to do their usual:work or any
other work for which they're
.qualified. Age, education,
training and previous work
experience may all be consi-
Conditions ordinarily con-
sidered disabling under the
social. security law include

severe heart disease, progres-
sive cancer, a severe mental
illness, permanent kidney fail-
ure, and loss of major function
of both arms or both legs.
"The definition of disability
under the social security law
is a comparatively severe
definition," Robinson said.
"People can be eligible for
disability benefits under some
other programs but still be
ineligible under the social
security program."
The worker is notified of
Florida Disability Determina-
tion Service's social security
disability decision in an ek-
planatory letter.
If benefits are to be paid, the
letter tells how much a month
they'll be and when to expect
the first check.
If the worker is found ineli-
gible, the letter explains why

and tells how the decision can
be appealed.
"The Florida Disability De-
termination Service also con-
siders whether or not voca-
tional rehabilitation services
might help a disabled worker
get back to work," Robinson
said. "The services include
counseling, teaching of new
skills, training in the use of
prostheses, and job place-
ment. They may be offered to
people not eligible for social
security disability benefits as
well as to people who are."
Social security benefits can
also be paid to severely dis-
abled people who were dis-
abled before age 22 when a
parent is eligible for social
security benefits or has died
after working long enough
under social security.
The Social Security Admi-


nistration is an agency of the
U.S. Department of Health,
Education and Welfare. The
local social security office is
located at 1316 Harrison Ave-
nue, the phone number is



The decision on whether or
not disabled people are eligi-
ble for social security disabi-
lity benefits is a joint effort of
the Social Security Adminis-
tration and Florida Disability
Determination Services, ac-
cording to Dave Robinson,
Social Security Representa-
tive for Gulf County.
To get benefits, a disabled
worker must have worked
long enough and recently
enough in jobs covered by
social security. "Most work-
ers need 612 years of covered
work with 5 years of it in the 10
years before they became
disabled," Robinson said, "al-
though for workers disabled
before age 31, the requirement
decreases with age to as little
as 1'2 years of work."
"The work record is verified
by social security," he said.

Youth Laws

Due Overhaul

Laws governing the treat-
.-inent of youthful offenders
will undergo close scrutiny
' during the 1977 legislative
session, according to Rep.
Billy Joe Rish, Chairman of
the House Judiciary Commit-
Rish, Democrat of Port St.
Joe, has appointed the Select
Subcommittee on Youthful
Offenders to study "produc-
tive alternatives" for dealing
with young offenders. The'
subcommittee will be chaired
by Rep. Gwen Cherry, D-
"We want to examine the
statutes, court procedures
and rules to see if they ade-
quately handle the special
problems 'involved with
young crimnial offenders,"
Rish said. "Our goal is to
achieve justice for youthful
-offenders as well as society."
Rish expressed concern
about the effectiveness of the
current laws. "Right now,"
he said, "we see young people
:arrested for their second or

third offenses who go free
because they aren't quite old
enough to be treated as adults.
The law obviously doesn't
solve their problems. At the
same time, the law does little
to protect the public from
crimes committed by young
Among the proposals the
subcommittee will study is a
measure that would result in
more young people being tried
as adults. Such a bill passed
the legislature last year, but
was vetoed by Gov. Reubin
Askew. Rish said the sub-
committee will meet with
opponents of the bill to "iron"
out some differences."
"Some of those who were
against the bill last year have,
told me they might have been
wrong," Rish said. "We're all
going to sit down, look at what
we disagree on, and end up on
some mutual ground."
