Commission Hikes

Water, Garbage Rates

Step Taken to Correct Losses

Machinery of Newkirk Construction Com-
pany lies idle this week as the dispute ,

The City Commission took preliminary steps Tuesday night
to increase the water, sewer and garbage rate charges here in
the City. The increase is coming on the heels of an
announcement to the Commission recently, by Auditor atid
Clerk Mike Wright that the services were losing money
currently and would lose even more at the same rates during the
coming fiscal year. The Commission has tried to keep rates for
the services established which will make them self-sustaining.

Water rates in the City will
be hiked from a rate of 70c per
thousand gallons to 90c per
thousand. This rate reflects a

Embattled Oak Grove

Project Is Shut Down

The on again, off again
water and sewer construction
project for Oak Grove is off
again at the moment.
Tom Newkirk, owner of
Newkirk Construction Com-
pany, shut the job down this
week for the same reason
which has plagued the job
ever since it has started -
lack of money coming down
from the bonding company.
The bonding company, De-
pendable Insurance Company
of Atlanta, Georgia, has insis-

ted on periodic payments for
the job coming to them for dis-
tribution to Newkirk. New-
kirk says the money is not
coming back to him, his
suppliers, creditors or labor-
Newkirk said this week,
"They are obstructing pay-
ments to the employees, sup-
pliers, sub-contractors and
material people. We're ready
and willing to complete this
job as soon as we receive the
money that we have earned

and which the county has
already paid in".
The contractor told The Star
that this is the third week in a
row that the bonding company,
has obstructed wage pay-
ments. "The laborers on the
job haven't been paid in three
weeks because the bonders
have held up the funds", he
The bonding company is
liable for construction of the
project at the bid price, since
they wrote the guarantee that
Newkirk would perform. The
puzzler is why they continue to
hold up payments to Newkirk
when he is willing, almost
eager, it seems, to continue
work on the project. Accord-
ing to E. F. Gunn, the inspec-
tor on the project, the work is
,being done properly.
Newkirk says another ob-
stacle is the hold-up of over-
head payments. The contrac-
tor says he has asked for
$7,500 per month in overhead
expenses, but thus far has
received only $750.00 since the
job began. "You can't pay
office rent, help, machine
payments, taxes, etc, with
that kind of money", the
young builder said.
Since construction began in
late July, the county has paid
out approximately $72,000 in
periodic payments, with an-
other $45,000 due. This is
approximately half of the
contract price.

rising cost in labor, supplies
and power, as well as increas-
es in everything which goes
into the production of water.
The increase in rates is the
first in nearly five years, when
the present rates were set. '
Wright said that current
projects under way in the
water department will pre-
vent the necessity of raising
the rates even higher. He
reported to the Commission
that he had made a survey of
other communities in the area
and of eleven communities
surveyed, only three had a
lower rate than Port St. Joe
will now have.
Increases in the garbage
collection service will also go
into effect the first of October,
raising the rates for home
owners by $1.00 per month.
Other increases will increase
the rate for business establish-
ments to $6.00 per month;
special users, such as Httels,
eating places, etc., to $10.50
per month and wholesale us-:
ers, such as super markets
which require daily pick-up
will be charged $30.00 per
There will be no increase in
sewer rates, although the
increased water rate will also
cause the sewer charge to go
up. Sewer service is charged
at the rate of 60 percent of the
water bill. That percentage
will remain constant.
The new rates will make the
minimum water, garbage and
sewer bill $9.26 in the City.
Mrs. Jane Patton, director
of the Northwest Florida AIe-
gional Library, asked the City
Commission Tuesday night, to
supplement Gulf County's
contribution to the Library
system by $10,000 to add to the
$20,000 contribution of Gulf
Mrs. Patton said she had
submitted a budget request of
$30,000 to the county to operate
the library service here in
Port St. Joe, Wewahitchka
and the mobile library ser-
vice. "That's a bare minimum
amount to operate both li-
brary buildings and a book-
mobile service", she said.
Mrs. Patton said she had
asked the County Commission
for the extra $10,000 but was
advised that the county budget
had been set. She said the
Commission then suggested
she ask the City of Port St. Joe
for the money.
Mrs. Patton pointed out that
the library started operations
in the county with annual
contributions of $15,000 from
the county "several years
ago". She said the contribu-
tion has been $18,000 for the
past four years and was
increased to $20,000 this year.
"This isn't enough to pay
Gulf County's share of opera-
tion of two stations, provide
one full time librarian at each
site and pay for bookmobile
services", she said.
The City Commission pledg-
ed to continue paying $125.00
per month as they have over
the past several years, when
the payment was established
to pay rent on the library
headquarters here in Port St.
Joe. Mayor Frank Pate told
Mrs. Patton'that the City, too,
had already set its budget and
it "was tight". He pledged the
cooperation of the City to help

One Wreck Mars Holiday

Only one accident of any
consequence was reported in
Gulf County during the long
Labor Day holiday week end
by the Florida Highway Pat-
Trooper Al Harrison report-
ed that a late model car driven
by Nelson Tipton skidded on
Highway 71 about two miles
east of Port St. Joe and

slammed into a telephone pole
Saturday evening.

Trooper Harrison said the
Tipton automobile, a Mustang
II skidded on the rain slick
highway, crossed the highway
and ran off the shoulder,
striking the telephone pole and
came to a stop in a thicket of
pine trees. The telephone pole

was broken off by the impact.
Tipton and a passenger in
the car, Tom Stansel, were
both thrown from the car,
but were treated for cuts and
bruises at the Municipal Hos-
pital and released. Both were
given several stitches to close
cuts about the face.
The car was a total loss.

two rooms were filed in mak-
ing application for the Block

plans is going to call for a
re-application making a
change in intentions.
Mrs. Minnie Likely put in a
pitch for a building at the site
Tuesday night. She asked that,
if the City should go ahead and
finish one building, they would
like to rent it for their opera-
tion, the Gulf County Associa-
tion for Retarded Citizens.
Mrs. Likely pointed out that
they were the only functioning
organization after use of the
building. She also said they
could pay some rent for the
Commissioner James B.
Roberts said he felt the GARC
operation was a state and
federal government function
and not the responsibility of
the City.
Mayor Frank Pate told Mrs.
Likely the entire Commission
held the views expressed by
Roberts but that the City may
be able to furnish a place of
operations if the GARC could
come up with a stated figure
they would be able to pay for
rent and possibly help with

that if GARC could fund

These 'Jaws'


These "Jaws" will not snap shut again.
Al Mobbs of Mexico Beach caught the three sharks
shown in the bottom photo off Highland View over the week
end. The sharks, caught in four feet of water were snared in a
flounder net and pulled to shore when Mobbs checked his net
Monday during the early afternoon, after leaving the net out
all night.
The catch was made off the seawall in the Highland View
area. Since sharks are rarely seen in this vicinity, it is
suspected that the big fish were brought in by the storm tides
which was whipping the coast all day Monday as a side-effect
of Anita.
As an interesting sidelight, movie makers are shooting
"Jaws II" over near Destin at this time. The movie is a
sequel to the film, "Jaws" which swept the country in
popularity last summer, creating some unhappy thoughts
among seaside tourist attractions for frightening away
tourists with their fear of sharks and what they might do.
These three sharks, lying on the concrete bulkhead at
Highland View look harmless enough right now.
Mobbs said he would rather have had a nice mess of
flounder for his troubles.

What ls It?

Editor's Note: The following is a
guest editorial written by Don
Moore, editor and publisher of the
.Anna Maria Islander.

A newspaper, what is it? It's a
Jmethod of capturing a slice of
"history on a sheet of paper for the
-. world to contemplate, castigate and
5^ To the person who pays a dime,

t his,boat aground and it's a "one-

$F undoubtedly got the story wrong,
Sand even misspelled his name, to
hear him tell it.
Two weeks later when this
perturbed subscriber feels he has a
% beef with city hall because it is
arbitrarily stopping him from ad-
ding to his home, he doesn't hesitate
to call up the "rag" and request a
^ full-scale investigation. He wants a
battery of reporters and a couple of
photographers to look into the
;i-.injustices being dished out to him
courtesy of his elected officials.
If the inquiry by the newspaper
proves beneficial to his position,
t then the paper can do no wrong. To
him it's worth every penny of the
Z two bits he paid for it and he is even

big hearted enough to let bygones be
However, if the facts reveal that
the officials were correct, then the
paper, according to this particular
subscriber, didn't understand the
issues, didn't dig hard enough or is
being paid off by city hall.
A newspaper that's doing its job
not only tells it all, it lets the whole
world know when your neighbor
breaks the law and mentions the
facts when you do too.
Editorially, it takes a stand on
issues of importance to the readers
it serves, gives the public a chance
to voice its views by writing letters
to the editor, tells the people what's
happening at city hall and when
their elected officials are doing their
jobs and when they're not.
It does other things, too. By
looking at the ads, a reader can find
out what a jar of peanut butter costs
at the local grocery store, where to
take his wife out to dinner, or who
can fix his broken lawnmower. It
can tell him when the next high tide
will be, how much it rained last
Thursday and if taxes are going up.
A good newspaper does all these
things and more on an impartial
basis. It's a mirror of the commun-
ity it serves.
If it's doing thq job and doing it
properly, the paper probably is long
on enemies and short on friends. On
this score, the editor of a well-known
area daily paper once told a young
reporter that ,the stature of a
newspaper is not determined by the
number of friends it has, but the
stature and number of its enemies.

On September 1, 1974, the
Gulf County Volunteer Ambu-
lance Squad assumed the re-
sponsibility of rendering
emergency medical services
for Gulf County. That group of
about a dozen hardy souls
began operation with a little
first aid and an ambulance
that had equipment that we
were completely unfamiliar
During the three years that
have elapsed since this begin-
ning great strides have been
made to upgrade the emer-
gency services for the citizens
of Gulf County and for those
would-be patients who happen
to have a need for emergency
care while passing through or
visiting our fine county.
The first of these strides to
be made occurred in the
Spring of 1975 when we gradu-
ated the first Qf four emer-
gency medicaJ techpicial clas-
ses. The EMT is skilled in life
and limb saving techniques
such as cardio-pulmonary re-
suscitation, spinal immobili-
zation and auto extrication.
The second great stride was
in the addition of a second
ambulance which was more
practical and with more work-
ing area than the first. This
also gave us the capability of
handling two emergency calls
at the same time.
Next came the addition of
our emergency medical ser-
vice communications system.
With this system we have the
capabilities of communicating
with doctors and nurses at the
hospital and if need be, to a
doctor at his home or office. At
about this same time we
added the Rescue Truck to our
inventory. This truck carries
our sophisticated equipment
needed to gain access to an
automobile after an accident
so that the injured may be
removed without causing
more damage to the indivi-
During this three-year per-
iod, we also had our share of
pitfalls; however just as we
try to treat our patient's,
wounds so that they may heal
rapidly and completely with
as little pain and complication
as possible, we treat our
wounds so that they have
healed' and we are able to
continue the care the people of
Gulf County have come to
The members of our squad
are made up of dedicated
volunteers from many walks
of life. Some are housewives,
one is a school bus driver,
another is a realtor. We also
have two LPN's, a surgical
technical, a waitress, a police
officer, three college students,
(two of which are currently
enrolled in the registered nur-
sing program at Gulf Coast
Community College), and an-
other member is retired from
the railroad.
As we begin our fourth year
of service, we the members of
the Port St. Joe Unit, wish to
thank the citizens of Gulf
County for their support over
the past years and we look
forward to the strides to be
made in the future. May God
bless you and if by any chance
we happen to meet in the back
of an ambulance, rest assured
in the knowledge that the Lord
has been with us and will
remain with us so that you will
be in His hands through us.

With costs of operating an
automobile spiraling upward
every day, motorists can save
money by driving sensibly
said the Florida Highway
Patrol today.
"Large modern automobiles
equipped with pollution con-
trol devices are fighting the
battle for more miles per
gallon and the experts advise
us that they are making
progress," Patrol Director
Colonel Eldrige Beach said.
Drivers were urged to drive
smoothly and not to use rapid
acceleration or travel at high
speeds which will greatly
reduce gas mileage. Sudden
braking was given as a cause
of excessive wear and tear on
tires and brakes which also
costs extra money.
"Drivers who insist on jack
rabbit starts and sudden stops
are leaving an awful lot of
their money on the highways
unnecessarily. However, if

they drive sensibly this money
can be left in their savings
account instead," concluded

High and low tide predic-
tions for St. Joseph's Bay for
the upcoming week are set
forth in the table below. The
information is furnished by
the U. S. Weather Bureau sta-
tion in Apalachicola.

President Jimmy Carter is taking care of his
home state. On our route to Warner Robins, we
leave Highway 90 'about four miles east of
Chattahoochee and head up through Bainbridge,
Camilla, Sylvester and hit 1-75 this side of
Cordele. Every road between Highway 90 and
1-75 is being resurfaced. The roads along this
route were already in pretty good shape,
especially for secondary roads, but they are all
getting a new cap.
Another thing we noticed is that the firms
working on the re-paving are all using brand
spanking new equipment. They must figure they
have at least four years of steady work ahead of
them. Every piece of machinery is new from the
dump truck to the asphalt spreader.
A few trips over Florida's reads make us s
convinced that, in 1980, we need to elect a man
from Florida to the White House... if our roads
will hold up that long.

I think the Department of Transportation is
doing the same thing for the people operating
front end machines along Highway 71 as
President Carter is doing for the road pavers of
Georgia. Highway 71 is little more than patches
in many areas between here and Blountstown. In
other places, the highway is nothing but holes.
It seems to me that the DOT surely could
squeeze out a few dollars to surface this one
road. From the looks of the number of patches on
the highway it would seem that already, almost
enough money has been spent on patching to
resurface the road.

You wouldn't believe what I saw Tuesday
evening. Since it was a fifth Tuesday, I had the
opportunity of going home at dark to stay there
for the rest of the evening. This opportunity
comes four times a year, each time a fifth
STuesday rolls around.
Last Tuesday, I was on my way home and I
saw a softball game in progress and instantly
remembered that the Kiwanis and Lions clubs
were supposed to play softball on that night.
Kiwanis pitcher, Gene Raffield had sat on
the ball and had flattened it out. It fluttered like a
spitball when he pitched it. On one occasion, he
threw Sheriff Ken Murphy two balls at once. By
the time Ken decided on which ball to swing at,
both had gone right by him.
Old man Leonard Belin showed those young
whipper snappers he still knew how to hit a ball
and, rattled the fences once. Gannon Buzzett
played second base for the Kiwanis but couldn't
hold on to the ball. I guess he's just not used to
handling a "pill" quite that large.
The star of the Kiwanis Club (or the nearest
thing to a 'star' they had on the field) was Dr. Joe
Hendrix. Joe surprised everyone, including
himself and his wife by catching three fly balls
for key outs. His timely play held the score down
to 21-5.
Billy Joe Rish, a Kiwanian, banged out a
long fly ball, only to be caught by Lion Fred
Witten, his junior law partner. Billy Joe came
near firing Fred over that one, but he thought
better of it when he remembered the work at the
office Fred had to do for him.
Kiwanian Charlie Wall, playing short right
field (a position of his own invention) tried to
stop a grounder by closing his legs together.
That's like trying to catch a butterfly in a mullet
The game was cooked up by Lions Bob
Moore and Mike Wright and sold the idea to the
Kiwanis in a weak moment.
They evidently had fun, but I'll bet there
were some sore old muscles Wednesday mor-

,Florida's forest-products
industry is conserving today's
woodlands for tomorrow by
making better, more efficient
use of the trees which it
harvests now.
"As late as 1940, only about
50 percent of every log cut and
transported to a manufactur-
ing facility was actually uti-
lized to make into useful
products," said Cooperative
Forest Management Supervi-
sor Larry Wood of the Florida
Division of Forestry, Depart-
ment of Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services.
Today, thanks to increased
utilization, many wood resi-

dues once considered worth-
less are now being converted
into useful, practical by-pro-
ducts. "In effect, the residues
are now serving new uses;
they are now too valuable to
waste," he said.
Because of improved tech-
nology and the ever expanding
demand for forest products, as
much as 90 percent of each log
is now often effectively uti-
lized to manufacture goods.
"And the rate of utilization is
continuing to increase as new
uses and markets are deve-
loped for more and more wood
residues such as tree bark,
shavings, sawdust, limbs and

Got the blues? Longing for far-away places? Bring a
touch of the Islands to your- table with Tropical Fruit
Loaf, a delicious quick bread ideal for brunches, coffees,
snacks or even as a light dessert. The loaf is -a delicious
blend of pineapple and banana flavors. It is moist, keeps
well and tastes even better on the second day, when the
flavors mellow and become more blended.
While Tropical Fruit Loaf will remind you of exotic
places, the ingredients are readily available. Bite-size
crispy wheat squares, a breakfast cereal, is an important
ingredient that adds both to the bread's good flavor and
texture. Crush to half its volume with a wooden spoon
or pestle. -Then add to the liquid along with the- flour
and other dry ingredients.
Get away for awhile if only in your dreams.
2 c-ips all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup Wheat Chex cereal crushed to 1/2 cup
1/3 cup nuts, chopped
1 egg, slightly beaten
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons water
1 can (8 oz.) crushed pineapple, undrained
1/2 cup mashed banana (1 large banana)
Preheat oven to 3500. Grease an 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 x 2 1/2-
inch loaf pan. In large bowl, thoroughly mix flour, sugar,
baking powder and salt. Stir in cereal and nuts. Combine
egg, oil, water, pineapple and banana. Add to dry ingre-
dients all at once. (Mixture will be stiff.) Stir just until
moistened. Turn into pan. Bake 70-75 minutes or until
tester inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool 15
minutes before removing from pan. Makes 1 loaf.

Sharks Meet Gators Friday I

County Rivals Tangle Here In Season's Opener

y Nobles, Wade Stoutamire, Rodney Herring,
n, Ronald Pickett and Joey Fontaine.
-Star photo


If you can believe a football
coach when he is making his
prognostications for the com-
ing season, Shark fans are in
for an apprehensive season.
"It could be good, or it could
be bad", Coach Wayne Taylor
keaid this week, as his young,
inexperienced squad made
preparations for the season
opener here Friday night at
1t:00 p.m.
The Sharks will take to the
field with their county rival
and traditional season opener,
Wewahitchka's fighting Ga-

Game time Friday night will
be at 8:00 p.m. Tickets will be
$2.00 for adults and $1.00 for
students. Reserved seats will
be $2.25. Tickets prior to game
time may be purchased at the
school office.
Some season ticket packets
are still on sale in the school
office. The packet, containing
a reserved seat ticket for each
home game, sells for $12.26.
Again, if you can believe the
pre-season predictions of a
coach, new Gator coach, Bo
Bo Owens is also apprehen-
sive, with what he terms a

"squad of young kids, most of
whom have never played foot-
ball before a crowd before".
Port St. Joe will be starting
a season with only five return-
ing seniors and most of the
squad made up of sopho-
mores, who have never been
on the field in competition
before. The Sharks are also
hampered with a poor showing
' in both, the spring and fall
jamborees. The Sharks failed
to score in four periods of
Jamboree play.
Last Friday, the Sharks
bowed 19-0 to Niceville in the

Jamboree held in Chipley and
played to a 0-0 tie with
Graceville in their other ap-
pearance in the jamboree.
Coach Taylor describes his
team as a team with "quite a
few boys who have never seen
live action before. We are thin
in numbers, with only 26
varsity players on the squad.
We do have enthusiasm, we're
excited and w:'re optimistie"I
Taylor said he was disap-
pointed in the jamboree show-
ing, but pointed out, "Those
scores don't count".
The head coach pointed to a

bright spot in the jamboree
when Keith Neel ran 75 yards
for a touchdown. "It was
called back by a penalty,
though," Taylor said.
Friday night's starting 11 is
still sort of uncertain, but
Taylor said he would probably
start the same team which
started in the jamboree last
week. These include: Rick
Taylor at quarterback; Keith
Neel at fullback; Tim Beard
at halfback; Duane McFar-
land at tailback; Allen Samp-
son and Ronald Pickett at
ends; Barry Nobles and John

Anderson, tackles; Joe Wilson
and Vic Gilbert, guards and
Wade Stoutamire at center.
The schedule for the coming
season, will be as follows:
Sept. 9-Wewahitchka, H
Sept. 16-Fla. High, T
Sept. 23-Walton High, H
Sept. 30-Wakulla County, T
Oct. 7-Marianna, T .
Oct. 14-Chattahoochee, H
Oct. 21-Chipley, T
Nov. 4-Apalachicola, H
Nov. 11-Blountstown, H
Nov. 18-P.C. Christian, T

The Gators will feature both
a new coach and virtually a
new team this season. Bo Bo
Owens, an alumnus of Port St.
Joe High School, and, like
Wayne Taylor, a product of
the coaching of Marion Craig,
will take over the Gators for
his first year.
- Owens served the Gators as
an assistant in years past.
Owens said Monday that
most of his team is new.
"Many have never played

football before", he said.
Owens said the Gators were
enthusiastic and were working
hard. "We'll be trying hard all
year", he predicted.
This hear the Gators will
play the following schedule'
Sept. 9-Port St. Joe, T

Commissioner of Agriculture
Florida's farmers and those
in other Southeastern states
certainly have suffered
enough this year with freeze,
'drought, pest problems and
disease in their hay and grain
crops. Therefore_ I am oppo-
sing a petition before the
' Interstate Commerce Com-
- mission that would increase
Freight rates on rail move-
tnment of grain during the
coming fall.
The proposal from the
Southern Freight Association

'Opposes Rail Rate Increase

(which includes the two major
railroads serving Florida)
would increase the rates on
whole grain shipments by 20
per cent in the period Sept. 15
through Dec. 15. This rate
increase would affect grains
shipped in carrier-owned
equipment but would not ap-
ply to grain shipped in those
cars owned by the shippers.
Also, the railroads point out,
milled products and feed
would not come under the rate
increase. And, under transit
privileges granted under the
Railroad Revitalization and

Report Act of 1976, whole
grains shipped in for formula-
tion and shipped out again as
feed in carrier-owned equip-
ment would not be affected.
However, as I am pointing
out to the ICC, Florida in a
normal year is a grain-deficit
state. In fact, we raise only
about 26 per cent of the feed
used by our livestock and
poultry industries. This means
we must ship grain into Flor-
ida in large amounts to make
up the deficit. A rate increase
of 20 per cent we consider to be
inflationary, and would ulti-

mately be reflected in retail
food prices.
Much of Flordia's normal
feed supply would be affected
in one way or another. When
we consider the damage
caused by weather, pests and
diseases, coupled with the fact
that our livestock industry has
been unprofitable for the last
three years; any increase in
freight rates on feed grains,
however temporary, would
only increase the costs of
raising livestock and poultry
and producing milk and fur-
ther depress our economy,

which to a great extent de-
pends upon agriculture.
The railroads correctly
point out that there are huge
stocks of wheat and corn in the
nation's mid-section and
whole grain is now priced
below production costs. The
railroads argue that these low
prices for grain' offset any
proposed freight rate in-
crease. Despite that argu-
ment, I feel any additional
cost -- however small and
temporary added on to cost
of production this year is
unwise and untimely.

SAMA Suggests Slow Warm-Up to

Prevent Painful Bursitis Attack

From the American
Medical Association
Sometimes it's "house-
maids knee," or "policeman's
heel," or "tennis elbow."
By any other name it's still
bursitis, and it is one of man-
kind's more painful and dis-
abling ailments.
Bursitis, says the Ameri-
can Medical Association,
means inflammation of a lub-
ricating sac about a joint. The
sac, called a bursa, is similar
to a collapsed balloon with
some fluid inside. It is located
at various places in the body
#where joints or tissues touch
and rub, and without cushion-
ing there would be friction.

Bursitis can hit at many
points in the body, but most
often occurs in the shoulder,
knee or elbow.
In most cases bursitis fol-
lows unaccustomed strain or
overuse of an extremity. By
taking a little time to work up
to your physical condition, and
especially by working up the
muscles that you plan to use in
any repetitious motion outside
your normal activity (stren-
gthening your wrist and arm
before starting to paint the
house, for instance) you can
probably keep clear of this
common and painful ailment.
If you get bursitis, no one
need suggest that you see a
doctor. The pain is so acute
