In Gulfs First Highway Fatality of the Year

David Tyler of Keystone Heights became the first person
to die on Gulf County highways this year, when he was killed
as the result of an accident between a' pick-up truck and a
large tractor trailer at Beacon Hill Thursday afternoon.
According to Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Bill
Godwin, Tyler was thrown from the bed of the pick-up truck
when the larger truck struck it from the rear and was run
over and killed by the larger vehicle. According to Godwin,
Robert Thomas McGalliard of Thomasville, Ga., was
travelling east on Highway 98 and attempted to turn left at
5th Street, Beacon Hill. The chip truck, overtaking the
McGalliard vehicle from the rear, struck it in the rear. The
impact turned the pick-up around and shoved it off the
shoulder of the road on the west-bound lane.
Tyler, whowas riding in the rear of the pick-up tiuck was
tossed through the air to the road where he landed on
Highway 98. The larger chip truck, unable to stop at the
impact, travelled on down the road for 398 feet, running over
Tyler and dragging his body for a distance down the

"If you want to take over

a member of the Board had
made an end run on the

some of the Board mem-

Governor for confirmation.
Stafford specifically
charged County Commis-
sioner Billy Branch with
short-stopping the list of
new directors, which must
be approved by the Gover-
nor and changing two of the

four names on .the list.
"That's our responsibility
and the county has nothing
to do with it", Stafford

thoughts so all matters
could be adequately ex-
plored in the operation of
the system.
SStafford argued that re-
gardless of Branch's rea-
soning, he didn't have the
authority or the right to use
his office to involve himself
in something he had no
Jurisdiction over. "You are
a member of the district

Stafford pointed out that

at no cost to the system and

Stafford said the system

board members, Earl

point of impact.
The driver of the chip truck was Charles Elton Brown of
DeFuniak Springs. He was treated at the Port St. Joe
Municipal Hospital for shock after the accident.
The driver of the pick-up, McGalliard and three
passengers, Jerry Chastain, Gordon Knapp and Patty
Robinson, all of Thomasville, were not hurt.
Trooper Godwin charged Brown with failure to use due
care in attempting to overtake a vehicle. McGalliard was
charged with making an improper change of course.
Only one other traffic death has been recorded this year
in Gulf County and that was the death of George Thomas, Jr.,
here in Port St. Joe earlier this year. Tyler's death was the
first highway fatality outside municipal limits for the year.
All victims of the accident were taken by Gulf County
Ambulance Volunteer Service to the Port St. Joe Municipal
Hospital for treatment.

Comprehensive planning,
the Apalachee Committee and
joining a development com-
mission drew the main atten-
tion of the County Commission
at their meeting Tuesday. The
'Board barely had a quorum
present, with chairman Ever-
ette Owens and Otis Davis,
Jr., absent.
J. L. "Coon Bottom" Glenn


of Jackson County was pres-
ent at the meeting at the
request of Commissioner Leo
Kennedy, to explain tlh Coun-
ty's procedure to quality for a
new state law requiring each
county to have a development
plan and a planning commit-
tee on record.
Glenn began to explain how
the new law worked, but

attorney William J. Rish said
the County had already com-
plied with the law, had a plan
and had appointed their com-
mittee. "The only place where
we need to perform any
further", Rish said, "is to
adopt a few ordinances which
were required this year."
Clerk George Y. Core show-
ed Glenn a copy of the plan
and stated that it had taken a
committee along with the old
Northwest Florida Planning
and Advisory Council more
than a year to draw it up. Core
also stated the county has
already adopted the building,
subdivision, electrical and
plumbing codes required un-
der the new planning law.
"We're all set", Rish ob-
The Board still has one
ordinance to adopt which act-
ing chairman Jimmy Gort-
man asked the Board to
postpone until the next meet-
ing when all the Board would
be present.

Ed Lewchs, with the State
Department of Commerce
was present for the meeting
asking the county to consider
the new Apalachee Develop-
ment Council which is being
formed to take the place of the
now defunct Northwest Flor-
ida Planning and Advisory
Council. Leuchs presented the
board with copies of the
by-laws which now has six
counties as members.
Present members of the new
council are Jackson, Gadsden,
Calhoun, Franklin, Wakulla
and Leon counties. All were
members of the NWFPAC
with the exception of Leon.
The county is being courted
in this area by Bay county to
join a similar council with Bay
and Walton counties. Lewchs
said the Bay, Walton, Gulf
proposed organization cannot
get recognition by the state,
necessary before federal fund-
ing can be obtained to operate.

Municipal HospitalReceives 2- YearAc

Municipal Hospital has been accredited
by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of
Hospitals according to David Dunham,
This accreditation, which covers from
March 1977 to March 1979, is the result of an
on-site survey made by field representatives
of the Joint Commissions' Hospital Accredita-
tion Program. Accreditation indicates that
this facility has chosen to operate according
to standards set by JCAH and that the facility
has, in the main, met these standards.

The standards, published as the Accre-
Sditation Manual for Hospitals, set forth
optimal achievable goals of excellence'
against which a facility can measure itself
and be measured by the Joint Commission's
Municipal Hospital is one of approximate-
ly 4800 general hospitals throughout the
United States that have earned this recogni-
tion. There are approximately 7150 hospitals
in the U.S.
The Joint Commission's accreditation

surveys are voluntary. It is not legally
necessary for a hospital to be accredited, but
health care facilities have sought accredita-
tion because it represents a benchmark of
quality that is. higher than governmental
licensure alone. The chief aim of the Hospital
Accreditation Program, one of four such
programs under the JCAH umbrella, is to
help hospitals in their pursuit of excellence
and thereby provide a higher quality of care
to patients. The program also seeks to
recognize, and to identify for the public, those
facilities which meet its standards.


The Joint Commission began in 1918
under the auspices of the American College of
Surgeons. It was incorporated in 1951 with the
support of its present member organizations:
The American College of Surgeons, the
American College of Physicians, the Ameri-
can Hospital Association, and the American
Medical Association. JCAH is a Chicago-bas-
ed, non-governmental, not-for-profit organi-
zation. In addition to hospitals, it has
programs for the accreditation of long term
care facilities, psychiatric facilities? and
facilities for the mentally retarded.

On the face of the news story, however, the
book does disclaim the role of Jesus Christ as
part of the trinity,
I would like to know what they will do with
John 1:1 and 2 and 14. In verses 1 and 2 it says,
"Before the world was created, the Word
already existed; he was with God, and he was
the same as God. From the very beginning, the
Word was with God." and verse 14, "The Word
became a human being and lived among us. We
saw his glory, full of grace and truth. This was
the glory which he received as the Father's
only Son." The verses are talking about Jesus,
if you take the time to read the whole passage
and the before and after verses. Maybe the
writers claim that only John was convinced of
the diety of Jesus when he wrote these words.
There are other passages, however, which
cannot be ignored. There's John 14:6 where
Jesus himself said, "I am the way, I am the
truth, I am the life; no one goes to the Father
except by me." And verse 7, "Now that you
have known me," he said to them, "you will
know my Father also; and from now on you do
know him, and you have seen him."
Then too, we cannot forget the ninth verse
of the same chapter of John where Jesus said,
"He that hath seen me hath seen the Father".
In John 17:5, Jesus was praying when he said,
"O Father! Give me glory in your presence
now, the same glory I had with you before the
world was made."
There are many other instances in the
Bible where Jesus says he is the Son of God
and many more where others testify to the fact
that he is the Son of God.
If the writers are right in their supposition
that Jesus was not the Son of God, but only had
followers and many others convinced of the
fact, then he could not even be classified as a
good man or a good teacher, as the theologians
claim. And, too, all Christians would have
nothing on which to base their faith, since the
Christian faith is based on the belief that Jesus
was the Son of God and died for their sins. This
is the Christians forgiveness before God.
If the theologians' claim about Jesus is
correct, then Jesus can only be classified by
Jews, Islams, Moslems, the theologians and
others as the biggest liar and the worst
blasphemer ever known in history.
I shall go on in my humble way to believe
what the Bible says about Jesus. After all, part
of it was written by human witnesses of a
discerning nature, on the spot, and not by a
bunch of theologians who wish to make a
bundle writing a sensational book.

Another grandson.
I don't know where Frenchie and I went
wrong. Our sons can produce nothing but sons.
If we didn't have one interloper in the family,
son-in-law Tommy Oliver, we would have no
granddaughters at all. Those old boys we sired
just aren't good for anything but begetting
more boys. It's a sad state.
With eight grandsons and only one lone
granddaughter what chance does that lone slip
of a girl have to grow up without being spoiled

I've been having a hearing problem in my
left ear, so I went over to Panama City to a
specialist Friday afternoon and he tested my
hearing good. The left ear was shy of its
hearing ability, true enough. I expected that
verdict. What I didn't expect was for that
doctor to say, "Your right ear has good hearing
.... as good as could be expected from a man
your age." A man my age! Just what did he
mean by that? I'm not over the hill, yet!

,Wright Says City Gets Its

Share of Federal Funds


City Clerk Mike Wright told
the Rotary Club last Thursday
that the City of Port St. Joe
has been doing a pretty good
job of getting its share of
government gifts, grants and
loans during the past few
years. "During the past two
years, we have managed to
secure over $300,000 in federal
money", he said.
,The federal money has paid

Track Anyone?

Track, anyone? If you are
interested in forming a men's
track club in the Port'St. Joe
area call 229-6119. Hopefully a
group will be formed which
would compete in local events
and maybe even travel to
other cities to compete.
Remember, if anyone is
interested in track phone 229-

for refurbishing the Washing-
ton High school site into a
neighborhood recreation cen-
ter and playground, paved
five streets and laid sewers in
North Port St. Joe. "All of this
was a grant program with the
federal government paying
the entire bill", Wright said.
He pointed out that the
money didn't come free. "The
permit papers which must be
filled out for a grant number
more than a hundred pages",
he said, "and must be filled
out with extreme accuracy.
We utilize practically the full
time of one of our clerks at
City Hall just keeping up with
federal projects, filing reports
and doing the necessary paper
work which accompanies such
a grant or loan".
Wright also pointed to a $1.4
million loan which the City has
obtained from the Farmers
Home Administration, a gov-
ernment agency. The money
will be spent in upgrading,
improving and enlarging the
water treatment and distribu-
tion system in the City. $364,-
000 of the loan money will be
spent on the new water tank
currently under construction
behind the baseball field on

Long Avenue. Another $900,-
000 will be spent in doubling
the present size of the water
treatment facilities. The pres-
ent facilities are operating
above design capacity to pro-
vide the treated water the City
residents require. During the
summer months, the plant is
averaging around 25 million
gallons a month in treated
Another grant the city has
managed to receive is a
$289,000 package announced a
couple of weeks ago which will
come from the Economic De-
velopment Administration of
the State of Florida. The
money will be used to solve a
serious drainage problem in
the City in the Garrison Ave-
nue area.
Wright told the Rotarians
the City had received several
pieces of heavy equipment
free of charge from the Coas-
tal Plains Regional Council.
The equipment is government
surplus, much of it new, and
all in good shape. "There are
all kinds of goodies available
under this program if you
happen to be in the right place
at the right time", Wright
