In Gulf County

St JoePap erEstablishes.

Superior Tree Nursery

O$ 0 Seedlings Planted In 100AcrePlot

St. Joe Paper Company is planning for the future. As a
matter offact, they are now making plans to furnish their ,
paper product for the next generation.
One of the concerns of St. Joe Paper Company and
other manufacturers is the growing demand for wood and
the dwindling number of acres for growing the pine trees,
which are the basic ingredient for the paper they
manufacture. Continuing this manufacturing process is of :.
primary interest to the thousands of people throughout the
Southland who depend on the wheels turning and the pines
growing, to protect their jobs in the future
St. Joe Paper Company forester, Hugh White says the
only answer to providing pine trees for paper making in
the future is to produce more wood from the acres

director Mike Arthur look over the planting plan for the :
new nursery.

available and to reclaim present marginal lands for pine
tree production.
-For several years. St. Joe Paper Company has
operated an extensive land reclaiming operation, clearing
scrub oak lands and planting pines and draining swampy
lands to make them productive. Recent activities by the
ecologists have made draining lands to become an action
suspect of bringing on the end of the age quicker than
planned by the world's architect. Activities by these
people have made it increasingly difficult for paper
companies to drain or otherwise disturb their lands to
make it more productive for pines.
Another avenue of more production is the encourag-
ment :of the development of more productive trees. -In this
; area, foresters for lumber and paper firms have been
developing superior trees. That is, they take the biggest
and best trees in a tract and use it for seed and grafting
operations to perpetuate its species.
"This work started 10 or 12 years ago", White said,
. "with firms spending thousands of dollars just.to produce
trees which will grow bigger, faster and produce better
fiber on the same land as an ordinary tree.". White said,
the program is being supplemented with research on
fertilization, etc.
St. Joe Paper Company is getting into the superior
tree business herein Gulf County, with the establishment
of its first superior tree nursery way back in the woods
behind Overstreet. There. on a 100 acre field, which was
once awater-covered swamp and more recently cleared to
f plant soybeans, the firm has a force of nursery technicians
hand-planting superior trees which will be used for seed to
plant pine plantations in the future.
"It will be at least 25 years before we begin to reap a
benefit off what we are doing here", White said.
Forester David Groom said none of the trees being
hand planted, one at a time, in the 100 acre nursery will
ever feel the woodsman's axe until they become too old to
bear seed or they die from natural causes. They will be an
incubator, producing seed for future forests. It will be at
.least 25 years before the first harvestable pines are
available from the operation.
In charge of the planting operation is Mike Arthur,
who is the supervisor of the Paper Company's tree nursery
at Capps. Arthur is -supervising a force of about 12 men
who are busily and pains-takingly setting the pines in a

hand dug hole, gingerly removing the top of the burlap bag
in which each seedling is transported and patting the dirt
firmly around the roots. A second crew comes behind with
a huge tank of water and waters the newly planted pine.
The present operation is the second attempt to
establish the superior pine tree nursery. An attempt last
year failed, when all the 1,200 hand-grafted trees died
before they could be planted. "The grafts didn't take",
explained Groom
The stock being planted this year have all been hand
grafted, placing limbs from superior trees on root stock
produced at the Capps nursery. 'Each one of those
seedlings must have cost at least $100.00" Groom mused.

JQC Prosecutor Asks

for Removal of Judge

Taunton fromOffice

Offers No Regrets or Defying Canon
Ofer s d e 'es

In hearings held by the Judi-
cial Qualifications Commis-
sion this past Monday and
Tuesday, prosecuting attor-
ney, John Asbel, moved in his
'closing arguments that the
JQC recommend that Gulf'
County Judge David Taunton
be removed from his office as
County Judge.
In his closing arguments,
Asbel said that the judicial
code of ethics had been point-
ed out to Taunton who had
responded that when his con-
cept of the law and the code
clashed, his concept would
prevail. Asbel continued by
pointing out that Taunton dis-
played no remorse, felt he'd
done nothing wrong and ex-
pressed no desire to change
his conduct.
Asbel stressed that because
of the cumulative weight of
the eight' counts charged
against Taunton, coupled with
his desire not to change con-
duct, the commission had only
one alternative, removal. He
:expressed that otherwise they
'would condone the fact since
'Taqnton had stated he would-
. ~1t change his conduct.
Taunton, in his closing state-.
ment, rebuked the counts
against him, stating he had no
regrets for his actions. He
expressed that the democratic
system had widened the gap
between the "haves and have
nots", and if the rich or in-
fluential were mistreated they
had the recourse of legal
appeal. But, on the other hand,
what about the poor if they
were mistreated?

He stated that he must be
able to live with his con-
sience and pointed out to the
JQC that his fate was in their
hands, but that he had no fear
of their decision.
Taunton used Biblical scrip-

Sfore the 13-member JQC went
into closed session to make
; their decision on whether to
recommend to the .Supreme
Court of Florida to remove, to
make a private reprimand, to

his defense.
Taunton expressed that hi
only regret among the charges
against him was listening to
an "unscrupulous attorney",
meaning David Gaskin, "mis-
lead" him in a case where he
appeared as a character wi~;-

the federal funds, recently
allocated to the City for con-
struction of a drainage pro-
gram are now available and
outlined the steps the City now
needs to take to get the funds
released and work underway
on the program.
The funds, some $286,000-
were requested last year to
construct a huge' drain pipe-
line which Gehrig's firm has
designed to alleviate the water
problem which plagues all of
the eastern section of Port St.
Joe in the Garrison Avenue
area, during periods of ex-
tended or hard rains.
Gehrig said plans for con-
striction would be completed
within 30 days and that in the
meantime, the City needs to
make another application for
the funds, "to show to the
federal government you still
plan to construct the project".
Federal funding under pub-
lic works grants were turned
down on application last year.
This year's approval came as
a surprise to the Commission,

the well was tested again in

remedy for the'situation was
to put a second casing inside

Most of Ambulance Squad Resigns Over Kennedy's "Investigation"

At this time last week, the
Port St. Joe area had one of
the most efficient ambulance
service groups in the' state of
Florida, paid or volunteer.
Today, this efficient, trained
group is in tatters as the result
of hurt feelings over an "in-
vestigation" which Commis-
sioner Leo Kennedy said he

was making into an alleged
conflict of interest.
Commissioner .Kennedy,
who happens to be the Coun-
ty Commission's contact man
with the committee which
operates both the Port St. Joe
and Wewahitchka squads, told
The Star that he had several
complaints from private citi-

zens of a possible conflict of
interest between the director
of the Port St. Joe squad and
his business. The director is
Dick Lamberson of Port St.
Joe and his business is St. Joe
Auto Parts.
Kennedy said he is also
conducting an investigation of
the Wewahitchka squad for

possible conflict of interest
between members and busi-
ness operations.they are con-
nected with.
The County budgets $15,000
a year to operate both squads.
The alleged conflict of interest
has to do with how this $15,000
is spent.
Kennedy reported to the

County Commission in their
waning moments of last Tues-
day's meeting that he was
making an investigation and
he would have a report for the
Board on his findings in the
near future. Questioning by
the Board members,, to settle
curiosities as to what Kennedy
was investigating, revealed

that he was working with the
ambulance service files.
Word of the investigation
got back to Lamberson and
the squad director, who had
built the local unit from a
group of semi-trained people
into a trairAd, effective, im-
mediate response corps of
Emergency Medical. Techni-

cians, decided to chuck it all
and give up his association
with the group. Lamberson
said, "I do my ambulance
work for nothing. I have been
21 years building up an auto
parts business with the county
and I can't afford to give it up
in order to keep a free job."
Kennedy had later revealed

he had documents which
showed the ambulance service
had purchased $2,100 worth of
parts, supplies and lubricants
from Lamberson's firm over
period of nearly a year and a
half. This was the bone of
contention with Kennedy.
Kennedy told The Star, "I

ults, so many people."
Lamberson's contention

that he is not in violation was
substantiated by acting Board
attorney, Fred Witten Thurs-
day, after the blow-up be-
tween Lamberson and Ken-
nedy occurred and later by
attorney William J. Rish. Rish
said, "I am asking immediate-
ly for an Attorney General
ruling on the matter and
should have a decision within
a few days."
In the meantime, feeling
their leader was being unduly
maligned by Kennedy's alle-
gations, practically the entire
squad of EMT's has offered its
resignation from the squad,
leaving only two on the job,
temporarily here in Port St.
Joe, two in White City and
three at the Beaches. Only the
two in town can give any
immediate response to an
ambulance call.
Even the few who remain
active on the squad have said
they will quit within two weeks
if some action isn't taken by
the County Commission, since
they say they cannot cover the
situation 24 hours a day, seven
days a week.
As things stand' now, it
would 'be well if people of the
area just didn't need an
ambulance for a while. They
may have a hard time getting
one to respond.

home of a brother and sister-in-law, just visiting
and this sister-in-law happened to mention that
two of her children were now in college and at the
leaving home stage. There were other children
rapidly reaching that stage.
She was already beginning to wonder
what it would feel like with no children at home.
By the time children are reared to the leaving
home stage, the parents feel like they have had
kids at home under foot for all their lives. She
was disturbed at the prospect of having none at
home to care for.
The sister-in-law remarked, "I just don't
know what it will feel like to be home alone. L
don't know whether I will like it or not".
I had to tell her that: I had already reached
that stage. All of our kids have left home with the
exception of one who is in college and gone mos4
of the time.
"You'll enjoy it", I told her. "When all the
kids are gone and you are home alone, you're
free as a bird. If you want to walk around
through the house in your undershorts, you can.
If you want to wander through the house without
your undershorts on, you can."
Of course, one must prepare himself to
carry out the garbage, cut or hire the grass
cutting, bring in your own newspaper and climb
your own ladders to change the light bulbs.
When the kids leave home, one can expect
quiet on a Sunday afternoon, the TV is yours at
baseball time and the music which blares
through the house is of your own choice.
After the kids leave home, it is a time of
pleasure when they walk in for a visit and not
necessarily a built-in request for a couple of
bucks, borrow the car or a new set of threads. A
visit can also be a request to baby sit with the
The kids leaving home doesn't necessarily

home. These joys are just changed for some nevw

I WISH, NOW, I HAD bottled up a couple of
those days we were having back in January and/'
February. We could ration them out over a
period of a month or two and have some right
pleasant days now.

NO DOUBT YOU READ in the Panama City
News-Herald Saturday morning about the
helicopter crashing on Panama City Beach with
two passengers aboard. One of the passengers
was Ray, our number one son; the other was his
friend, Larry Kemp of Wewahitchka.
The two had taken their families to the
amusement park and they dared each other
down to taking a chopper ride. While they were
tooling along at 60 knots, 300 feet in the air ...
poof ... the motor quit and down they came.
About 50 feet above the ground, the rudder broke
off. A rudder is absolutely essential to handling
an aircraft in flight. Ray told us, that despite
this, the pilot handled the craft expertly and
brought it down in an upright position. Neither of
the three aboard the craft were hurt at all.
Had the pilot been a little less experienced
and the chopper had rolled over on its side ort
hadn't cone down in a landing position, we
would probably be collecting. Ray's life insur-
ance today. i
With a family which has things like this
happen to it, how can I help but have plenty of
subjects to write this column about each week?

SO YOU'VE BEEN dissatisfied with the
weather? Cheer up, Tuesday was the first day of
summer. This spring weather is bound to turn to
summer and you will have your change.

ney with violating an ethical
Gaskin testified Monday
that he didn't personally con-
tact TaUnton, that he did
want him to appear as a char-
acter witness,. and admitted
telling his secretary to advise
the Judge of the hearing date.
In count six, local mer-
chants Robert Moss and W. C.
Roche testified that Taunton
accused the merchants of
abusing the people at a Feb-
ruary,. 1975, meeting of the
Merchants' Association. Both
stated that Taunton explained
that he. would not tolerate
harassment from merchants
to the citizens through the,
Wanda Brown, local ac-
countant, later testified that
she' didn't remember the
judge making any threaten-
ing statements toward the
merchants. Her recollection
was that the speech was more
on te lines of informative.
Taking the witness stand
himself, Taunton denied the
charge. Upon being question-
ed by Asbel, Taunton admitted
that he felt the merchants had
been harassing the people.
.When asked again by Asbel,
if he would-admit to the alle-
gations made by Moss and
Roche, Taunton responded
"No," adding, "If I didn't say
it to them then, I'd be glad to
say it to them now."
JQC member Circuit Judge
Harold Smith asked Taunton
whether the financial status of
the person being charged
would'have any bearing on his
decision in a case of this
nature. Taunton pointed out
that the persons with the
"least" would, bee given the
benefit of the doubt.
Taunton explained that
many of the merchants had
been using the courts as a
collection agency and he want-
ed to stop that practice.
In two other unrelated in-
stances, counts eight and nine,
Taunton admitted having re-
fused judgment when the mer-
chants attempted.to collect.
One involved a teenager and a
car loan, and the other in,
evolved a black family behind
on a bill for a washing
In both cases he pointed to
hardships.as the reason for the
person not being able to pay.
In th. case of the washing
machine he actually loaned
the money to the family to pay
off the washing machine.
Count three charged Taun-
ton with attacking the impar-
tiality of State Attorney Leo
Jones, Judge B. J. Drivers,
and Judge Larry Smith during
.the Grand Jury proceedings
Investigating State Rep. Billy
Joe Rish, U. S; Congressman
Bob Sikes, former state sen-
ator George Tapper, State
Sen. Dempsey Barron and

The Grand Jury investiga-
tion was brought about by
allegations Taunton made at a
Gulf County Commission
meeting on October 26, 1976.
After the Grand Jury pro-
ceedings began, Taunton filed
a petition with State Attorn-
ney Leo Jones challenging the
impaneling of the jury, calling
the hearings a "whitewash",
and stating Judge Larry
Smith made the statement he
would "punch Taunton in the
nose" if he bothered him.
Taunton contended that he
never meant for the petition to
be made public before an open
session of the Grand Jury.
According to Taunton, the
petition was made public at
the recommendation of Leo
Jones, on the other hand,
said it was Taunton who made
the petition public though the
news media.
Taunton felt the key to his
defense on the charge was the
phrase in the draft of the
charge "which you knew to be
unfounded", and had based
his defense of the charge
around that phrase.
Asbel moved that the Com-
mission remove these six
words from the charge, The
Commission agreed to strike
the phrase from the count.
This act released many of the
witnesses Taunton had sub-
poeaned. Taunton nor his wit-
nesses were permitted to dis-
cuss what was said during the
closed session of the Grand
Jury hearings, as stipulated
by laws governing grand
Count four concerned the
investigation carried out by
the Judge and his office e-
sonnel relating to phone calls
and copies made at the ex-
pense of Gulf County tax
Clerk of the Gulf County
Court George Core testified
that Taunton's secretary at
the time, Shirley House, spent
many hours in his office using
the copying machine and re-
searching documents, point-
ing out that there was no re-
In cross examining the wit-
ness, Taunton began pointing
out that Core was one of the
people whom he was investi-
gating at the time, and began
bringing out a land trans-
action between Core, Rish and
Tapper. Asbel objected to the
line of questioning stating that
these matters have already
been examined by the Grand
Jury. A JQC judge in turn
informed Taunton that "this
was no forum to open up
another can of worms, if you
can impeach the witness,
fine." Taunton then discon-
tinued questioning Core...
Taunton had asked that
Smith be disqualified in open-
ing arguments Monday be-
cause he said Smith had con-
ducted a personal investiga-
tion into the charges against
the judge. That motion was

Are you and your family in-
volved in baseball, tennis or
other sports? Practices and
game nights can be hectic, and
microwave ovens are great
time savers and meal makers
for those days when schedules
are crowded. Mom can whip
up a quick, nutritious meal on
Little League nights, and Dad

can surprise her with his own
home cooking when she's late
from tennis. The microwave
experts at Whirlpool Corpora-
tion suggest these recipes for
delicious hot meals in minutes.
