contractor on the project,
informed the County Commis-
sion by letter Tuesday night
that he was terminating the
contract and was asking for
the money he felt was due for
work which has been per-
formed to date.
Newkirk has run up against
two obstacles: his bonding
company has stepped in and
put what amounts to a lien on
his progress payments, thus
preventing payment being
made directly to Newkirk;

Gunn and engineer, Robert

about just how much work has
been completed to the point
where-payment can be made.,
Both Gunn and Nations were
present at the meeting Tues-
day night and stated that
Newkirk was due some money
but not as much as he claims.
Gunn said he had refused to
sign the last two job estimates
since all the work listed on the
pay estimates had not been
completed to the point as sta-
ted on the report. The lack
of Gunn's signature kept the
engineer from giving his ap-
proval for payment and with-
out the approval of these two;

200 Gather for Library Opening Sunday

More than 200 people gathered in front of
Port St. Joe's new library building Sunday
afternoon for dedication services which would
officially designate the building the "Corinne
Costing Gibson Memorial Library" and open it
for service to the community.
Special praise was given Dr. T. S. Gibson
of this city by Mrs. James McNeill, Chairman
of the Gulf County Library Board for his
memorial gift of money in memory of his late
wife. Which set the wheels of construction in
motion for'the new building. Mrs. McNeill
labeled the library as "The ultimate in status
symbols". She said, "The service offered by
the local facility will be determined by the
desire of and financing by the people".
Mrs. Jane Patton, Director of Libraries
for the Northwest Regional Library Board,
-which will operate the local facility, express-
ed the appreciation of the Regional Library
system for providing such a "magnificent
place to house the Port St. Joe branch". She
also stated that the Regional Library would
nominate Dr. Gibson for the designation as
'Outstanding Florida Citizen' to the Florida
Library Association this year. "He may not
win, but he will certainly place near the top
for his generous gift here", Mrs. Patton said.
Dr. Richard Morley, retired president of
Gulf Coast Community College brought the
principal address, a short talk on the

permanence of a library.
Morley said, "To name a library in
memory of a person is one of man's highest
honors". He Went on to say, "Day by day,
year by year, a library is a living center of
learning. The work of this center will never be
done. It will change as the years go by." In
praising the gift of Dr. Gibson in memory of
his late wife, Dr. Morley described the
philosophy of Dr. and Mrs. Gibson as
"collaborators in creation"..
Port St. Joe's Representative William J.
Rish presided over the dedication ceremony
which started off with the Port St. Joe High
School Band playing the National Anthem for
the raising of the flag by the NJROTC class.
The flag was donated to the Library by the
local chapter of the D.A.R.
Everette Owens, Jr., Chairman of the
Board of County Commission and Frank
Pate, Mayor of the City of Port St. Joe cut the
ribbon officially opening the building to the
general public.
In a short ceremony inside the new
building, Albert H. Lane, a Huntsville,
Alabama artist and a close friend of the
Gibsons 'unveiled an oil portrait of Mrs.
Gibson which will hang behind the main desk
of the library building. The portrait was
commissioned by Dr. Thomas A. Gibson, the

son of Dr. and Mrs. Tom Gibson.
Refreshments were served to the crowd

which inspected the new building and. its
furnishings by the Port St. Joe Garden Club.:

Curtis Boyd, of Blountstown, shown

day morning in the finishing room of St. Joe

This wouldn't be so unusual except that
the butterfly was wearing a tag placed on its
wing by the Enbie-a Zoologia University of
Toronto, Canada.
A recent article in National Geographic

magazine says even the fact that a monarch
butterfly has flown from Toronto, Canada to
Port St. Joe, Florida isn't too unusual. The
article states that the beautiful insects fly the
Atlantic seaboa-d in migration each year
from Canada to South America and back.
Boyd preserved the butterfly and notified
the university by letter that he had found the

What was probably the last
act in the saga concerning
County Commissioner Leo
Kennedy and the former man-
agement of the Port St. Joe
unit of the Ambulance Service
was played Tuesday night.
Stiles Brown left the Com-
mission a "Statement of De-
sire", .signed by 122 people
,which called on the Commis-
-sion to remove Kennedy from
all duties with the Squad and
officially censure him for his
actions in what resulted in a
recent furor.
Kennedy countered the pe-
tition with the statement,
"Some of these signers prob-
ably don't even live in the
state. Only the voters put me
in this office and only the
voters can put me out." He
then went on for about a 20
minute defense of his past

come as support, expecting

Special Master to Rule On Contract

The Gulf County School
Board and the Gulf County
Classroom Teachers Associa-
tion are still at an impasse
after negotiations, which have
continued since July, have
failed to result in a working
Substantially, the -Board,

and the teachers are some
$50,000 to $60,000 apart from
an, acceptable package to
both. Only two matters re-
main to be resolved, but these
are proving to be stumbling
blocks in the way of agree-
Wages and insurance bene-
fits are the two items standing
in the way of a signed con-
tract. The teachers want a
sevep percent increase and
the Board has offered three
percent. The teachers want
half the cost of an individual
medical and life insurance
package, pegged at $11.44 and
the School Board is offering
$8.00. Presently, the Board

pays $3.62 monthly in insur-
ance benefits for a single
teacher and $5.00 per month
for married teachers.
*The School Board estimates
that the differences in the
asking figures amounts to the
estimated $50,000 to $60,000
per year.
This past week, the matter
was reduced down to calling in
a Special Master to hear the
presentations of both sides.
After taking the testimony of
both the Board and teacher
representatives, the Special
Master, a representative of
the Public Employees Rela-
tions Council (PERC) will
more than likely hand down a
decision in the matter in from
15 to 20 days.
The Special Master, Dr.
Paul Thompson of Ormond
Beach, who is president of
Daytona Beach Community
College, was here in Port St.
Joe on Thursday of last week,
taking testimony from both

sides from 4:00 to 8:30 p.m.

settlement, it will be studied

that, but I think Crosby was head and shoulders
above him in the music world. I think it's an
indictment to America's music taste when they
fail to-give Crosby as much a tribute. Crosby's
music has endured through 50 years, and
through all the fads and changes in music, and
still remains as popular today as yesterday.
I'll go along with the fact that Presley
probably made more money from his style of
"music" than Crosby did with his style,
considering the amount of time Presley spent in
the business. Making money isn't the object in
our way of seeing it: making the pleasing
musical sound is where the final judgment lies.

I had an invite from Senator Pat Thomas to
be his guest at his dinner in Tallahassee last
Thursday afternoon and evening.
Since the invite included a tour of the new
Capitol building, I wish I could have gone. Since
Senator Thomas is a good friend and a good
public servant, I would like to have been one of
those personally expressing appreciation for his
abilities and interest in our welfare over here in
Gulf County.
But, I couldn't make it. I had responsibili-
ties here in Port St. Joe that afternoon;
responsibilities I couldn't let slide or go to
another day, so it was stay in town and try to
express our appreciation to Pat on another day.
Thomas looks out for us over here in Gulf
County and I'm very satisfied with him in his
position in the Senate.
I don't know if you know it or not, but if you
wish to say "Hello" to Pat in person here in Gulf
County, just be in attendance at the next Easter
Sunrise Service at the football stadium here in
Port St. Joe. For the past several years, Pat has
attended our Easter Sunrise services. He's been
a lot more regular at these services than some of
our own people have been.

My neighbor, Walter Duren, brought Fren-

I have always been a disciple of the power of

burst a blood vessel.
The pile is still there, as big as ever. It just is
not going to spread itself it appears.

I ate my last watermelon of the year last

yard and it produced two offspring. One of the
melons rotted on the vine, but the other matured
and ripened.
We picked it the other day and cut it open
and it was as ripe as could be. That was the last

In a special meeting last
week with representatives of
the Departmental of En-
vironmental Resources and
Mexico Beach, the Gulf Coun-
ty Commission still backed off
from officially saying, "We
will join you in a combined
sewer collection and treat-
ment project for the Beaches".
but left the road open for the
future by urging Mexico.
Beach to go the federally
funded project alone with the
possibility of Gulf joining the
operation in the future.
At their last Commissionp
Meeting, the Gulf County..
- .Board was approached by
James Sublette, a representa-
tive of DER and Mexico
Beach's engineers, asking
Gulf to join hands in a joint
venture with the beach com-
munity. Primarily, the Beach
engineers wanted to know if
Gulf was interested in the
project so they could make

their plans accordingly in
setting pipe sizes for the
collection system.
At the earlier meeting, the
Gulf Commission had expres-
sed a reluctance to go along
with the deal because they had
no faith in the stability of the
Mexico Beach government.
While the County Board still
expressed no desire to join
Mexico Beach, they did ask
that the community go ahead
with the system and make
provisions in the mains for the
Gulf County beach communi-
,tieS., e q,on. in tf.tft)pj
...In.,addition,.te ,ulf Com-
mission asked 'the DER to
move the present beach sewer
study line from its present
boundary at the southern 'end
of St. Joe Beach to include the
City of Port St. Joe and its
disposal plant. ,
The reason for this request
was that the Commission
wants to ask the City of Port
St. Joe to join the county in,
making a request for a gov-
ernment study to research the
cost of bringing sewage from
these communities' into the
Port St. Joe disposal plant,
rather than construct a com-
pletely new disposal system.
Sewage for the Beaches is
tiot yet a dead issue, but there
is still no telling in which
direction it may take off in the
future. '

Last Act. .. . . from age 1

Vause told the Board the
glaring difference between the
two councils is that the NWF-
PAC was operated by hired
personnel and that the new
council would be entirely guid-
ed and operated by elected
officials from the member
Vause told the Board,
"Someone is going to be
required to perform the ser-
vices of such a council for all
counties in this district. It's
going to be 'us' doing it or
'they'. We think we will get
better and more responsive
service and can have a hand in
our own destinies if it's us' ".
Gulf County has not joined
the new council because the
Commission has felt that the
$5,000 annual dues are too
Vause answered this objec-
tion by stating that the dues
were set up to adequately
finance the operation. "All
counties pay the same dues
and, thusly, have the same
amount of votes in the organi-
zation. Leon County cannot
out-vote little Gulf, Liberty or
Franklin counties simply be-
cause they paid more dues
entitling them to more votes.
We pay the same as you would
and have the same influence
in the council".
Vause said that of the
13-county district which the
new Council has been author-
ized to operate in, seven
counties have already joined.
These include: Leon, Wakulla,
Jackson, Franklin, Liberty,
Gadsden and Calhoun.
Vause left the meeting with
the' statement, "We're not
here to coerce you: We offer
you our services and an
opportunity to join with us in
the Council."
The Board took no action on
the invitation except to tell
Vause and his fellow members
of the Council, Clerk Bobby
Howell of Franklin County and
new Council director, Ed
Leuchs, that they appreciated
the trio coming in person to
explain the set-up of the new
Mrs. Royce Dickens and
Tallahassee attorney Skip
Bertoch came before the
Board to notify them that their
firm, St. Joseph Bay Estates,
is planning an auction of some
of their property in the near
future and wanted to clear

their plans with Gulf County's
subdivision requirements.
Bertoch told the Board
plans were to auction off five
acre plots and single lots
facing Highway 30-A, which
would not be governed by
the county plat law, but that
they wished to comply, any-
how to protect their future
Bertoch' said .there was a
possibility they would sell all
of the land to one or several


no farther because he was out
of money. He claimed this
situation developed from the
fact that his bonding company
would not release his progress
checks to his possession.
This situation has been
brewing since September and
finally came to a head Tues-
day with Newkirk's letter
saying he was quitting.
So, what does the County do
This question was put to
their attorney, William J.
Rish, who outlined the alter-
natives to the Board.
"First", Rish said, "the
system will have to be com-
pleted by someone at no extra
cost to the county. 'If we are
not successful in getting New-
kirk satisfied and back on the
job, then his bonding company

buyers. "We may sell individ-
ual plots or none, according to
the price we are offered". He.
wanted to know what the
county would require of the
firm in case the lots were sold
as to roads, etc.
The Commission agreed to
enter into a contract with the
firm for St. Joseph's Bay
'Estates to build necessary
roads to county subdivision
requirements if the property
was sold. If the property was

nold sold the- contract would
be void.
In other business, the Com-'
-Agreed to advertise for a
hearing to consider the closing
of Jackson Street, a one block
street, in Oak Grove.
-Agreed to take a look at a
ditch problem on property
owned by George Cooper in
Wewahitchka and see if they
could do the needed work..

will have to comlilete the
Rish then suggested that the
Board 'contact Newkirk and
ask him to return. If he still
insists he will not, then they
have no alternative but to call
on the bonding company.,
Nations pointed out that if
the bonding company has to
complete the job, "You're.
looking at least a 90 delay on
the job. If you can get Newkirk
to come back, he can complete
the job, make all repairs,
clean up and be gone before a
new contractor could even get
on the job."
In light of this information,
the Commission instructed
Rish to contact Newkirk, ask
him to come back on the job
within 10 days or the County
will go to the bonding com-.
pany. Chairman James Gort-

man instructed Rish to con-
tact the Board immediately
upon hearing the answer, so
the county can take immed-
iate steps.

Florida voters the option of
amending the state's Consti-
tution to exempt persons over
,65 years of age, and blind or
, disabled residents, from the
property, taxes levied by
school districts.
"These people, who are fre-
quently living on fixed in-
comes, are the ones who suffer
the most under Florida's re-
gressive property tax system.
I personally feel that it is time
to give these people a break,"
: said Rish.
The North Florida law-
maker simultaneously filed
legislation that would grant an
additional exemption to cor-
porations whose taxable in-
come in a year is less than
"Florida's small busi-
nessmen earning modest pro-
fits need some relief from the
state's corporateincome tax if
they are to'survive in a busi-
ness community increasingly
burdened with government
regulation and soaring costs
due to inflation," said Rish.

Kenneth William Mathis,
age 24, of Rt. 4, DeFuniak
Springs, was arrested October
19, by the Tallahassee Police
Department on a Gulf County
warrant charging Mathis with
grand larceny.
According to Sheriff Ken
Murphy, the grand larceny
charge stems from a case in

January, 1975, when the First
United Methodist Church in
Wewahitchka was vandalized,
and approximately $200.00
worth of items stolen. Two
juveniles were apprehended
and charged with the theft
back in January, 1975, but
Mathis has managed to elude
the charges since that time.
Mathis is currently being
held in the Gulf County jal,
under at $2,500.00 bond.

*Dr. Borg said mental health
is a complex thing. It is a
composite of the way a person
thinks, behaves and reacts. He.
said, "There is no sharp line
between good and bad mental
health". He went on to say
that one out of ten need
treatment for disturbances or
stresses. "The trick is to know
when and where to go to get
aid for these disturbances",
Borg said.
He listed some of the symp-




According to Sheriff Ken
Murphy, the Gulf County Sher-
iff's Departmient has seized
approximately 12 marijuana
plants in the northern part of
Gulf County. The plants had
an average height of 51A feet.
The plants were discovered
several weeks ago by Deputies
Marty Martin and Jack Davila
about five miles north of
Wewahitchka in a heavily
wooded area. The plants were
kept under, observation since
that time in hopes of catching
the owner cultivating or har-
vesting his crop. Due to the
lack of manpower to constant-
ly observe the plants, it be-
came necessary to go ahead
and seize the plants.
Sheriff Murphy states that
these are some of the largest
- plants ever discovered in Gulf
County, and that if the plants
had been allowed to be har-
vested by the owner, could
have been worth near $1,000.

With the first crisp nip.that
hails the coming of fall, Flori-
dians should begin to think of
planting shade trees to beauti-
fy. afd increase the value of'
their property.
The Florida Division of For-
estry, Department of Agricul-
ture and Consumer Services,
is now selling seedlings at
their production cost to the
thousands of landowners
across the state.
Residents can choose from
species including slashL


spruce and sand pine, dog-
wood, red cedar, Arizona. cy-
press, catalpa, cottonwood
cuttings, green ash, sweetgum
and tupelo gum.
The minimum order for
bareroot seedlings of any
species is 25 and the minimum
charge will be the price for 500
seedlings. Order forms can be
picked up at the nearest Divi-
sion of Forestry 'office, the
Agriculture Extension Ser-
vice, the Soil Conservation
Service or the Agricultural

Stabilization and Conserva-
tion Committee.
If you plant your own tree,
the common approach is to do
a minimum of work when
digging a hole to plant a newly
acquired tree.
- However, a little extra ef-
fort and time spent in pre-
paring the planting site will
give your new tree a head
start and a much better
chance for survival..
In poor sites, such as sano or
very rocky soils, a larger than

usual hole may be called for,
and top soil hauled in to fill the
hole will give the tree some-
thing to grow in and become
Normally a hole at least two
feet wider and six inches
deeper than the spread of the
roots will be sufficient. Sub-
soil removed from the hole
should be discarded and re-
placed with a peat moss top
soil mixture.
This mixture should be
worked around the roots to

make certain that no air
pockets exist.
After filling the hole two-
thirds full, water the tree and
then fill in the remaining area
with topsoil, leaving a saucer-
like depression to hold addi-
tional water.
In soils with poor drainage,
or a high water table, there is
a possibility of. drowning the
tree due to displacing the
needed oxygen.

Jerry's headquarters for

Jerry mentioned several
other functions his ministry
also plans in the future: a non-
camp; a new album to be
released by Herald Records
Co. next month; and a trip to
this area, probably in Jan-

His music is rated second in
the nation on the Christian
broadcasting network's
national survey. Jerry says,

that show the joy and love of
the Lord instead of songs of
death and sad times."

Sheriff Ken Murphy reports
that the Gulf County Sheriff's
Department-has been plagued
by automobile burglaries for
the past four or five months in
the area of Simmons Bayou
and Cape San Blas.
Sheriff Murphy states that
numerous vehicles in that
area have been broken into
while their owners were scal-
loping and fishing in that area,
and a large amount of money
and property taken from the
vehicles. Property stolen has
consisted of pistols, shotguns,
jewelry, money, etc.
Many man hours have been
spent investigating these bur-
glaries, as well as keeping
vehicles- in that area under
surveillance. Officers of- the
Sheriff's Department received
a break in the case this week,
and several arrests are ex-

ed him through prayers and
contributions, and to WJOE
Radio for the air time they ire
constantly giving his songs.
The next time you're listen-
ing to the radio and hear
"Breaker, Breaker Sweet
Jesus", you might -stop and
offer a prayer for the ministry
of a young man filled with the
spirit, love and joy of the Lord.

pected, Sheriff Murphy re-,
At press time, no arrests
had been 'made, but Capt.
Jim Buchanan of the Sheriff's
Department has recovered
several of the stolen items,
including a camera, guns and
'CB radios.

Roller skates were invented
114 years ago by Dr. James
L. Plimpton, an American,
who made $1 million from
his ingenious idea.

Gators Back In Win Column

With 44-0 Rout of Freeport

By Dean ModUng
The Wewahitchka Gators
finally won a game after a
two-week dry spell, shutting
out the Freeport Bulldogs 44-0,
there last Friday night. The
Gator offense seemed to be
able to move at will and the
defense totally shut down
Freeport, whose record drop-
ped to 1-6. The Gators re-
cord jumped to 4-2.

Freeport elected to receive
the opening kickoff and took
the ball on their own 29. Al-
though Freeport ran for three
or four yards at a time. Wewa
finally stopped them with a
fourth and %, just short of the
mid-field stripe.
After a 26-yard punt, Wewa
got their first chance on of-
fense. On the second down
play, Clyde Gray got the call
and ran around right end for
63'yards and a touchdown.
However, the play was call-
ed back, after a long refer-
rees' conference. An inadvqr-
tent referee whistle had
soundedwhile Gray was in the
backfield, and the down had to
be played over.
But after all that confusion,
Ira McFann caught a 53-yard
pass from 'Tim Pippin two
plays later for a touchdown.
This..one stuck and Gray ran
the ball for the two-point con-
version. After midway
through the first quarter,
Wewa led 8-0.

Freeport couldn't do any-
thing on their next posses-
sion and had to give it up
again. Wright called a fair
catch for Wewa on his own 47.
Four plays later, Gray ran
around left end for 28 yards
and Wewa's second TD. Nate
Dozier was stopped on the con-
version attempt, making the
score 14-0 with 3:22 left in the
first quarter.
Using a great variety of
running plays, the Bulldogs
were able to make it down to
Wewa's 33, but the defense
clamped down, tackling the
runner behind the line on a
fourth and five.
On Wewa's third possession,
the offense showed perfect
form, scoring in eight plays
and 63 yards. The drive was
highlighted by a 37-yard pass
from Pippin to Mike Chum-
ney, which -carried the ball
down to Freeport's 26. Gray
scored from inches out and
then threw a halfback pass to
Dozier for the two-point con-
version. Score: 20-0, with 9:25
left in the half.
Frpeport started off badly
again, quick kicking on third
and 19. The play was prob-
ably a good one because the
ball rolled by two Wewa de-
fenders, pushing it back to
Wewa's 15%. This time it was
Wewa's offense that was
stymied. Pippin was sacked
for a seven-yard loss, making
Wewa punt for the first time of

the night.
Freeport drove their deep-
est on this offensive series, but
the half ended with the ball on
the 24, and only third down.
Wewa got the kickoff and
proceeded to score again on a
10-yard run around the right
end by Gray. Pippin kept for
the two points, making the
score 30-0.
Freeport tried once more,
but Wewa's doomsday defense
was merciless, allowing only
three yards in as many plays.
The fourth down punt was
good for 33 yards; the ball
finally rolling dead on Wewa's
On running mostly by Gray,
Wewa moved down to the Bull-
dog's 15 where Pippin threw to
Chumney for the fifth touch-
down. Lewis Wright scored
the two-point conversion on a
pass from Pippin. With 3:02
left in the third quarter, Wewa
led 38-0.
Wewa's,second string back-
field came into the game and
drove all the way from the 31
to Freeport's 20 in 10 plays, 4
with Allen Nelson getting most
of the yards in the drive.
A personal foul penalty and
a sacked quarterback forced
the second string to punt the
ball away. Freeport took over
on their own 71/, but couldn't
move the ball and had to punt.
However, they got the ball
right back, when on a second
down play, Hill fumbled the

ball away. Freeport took ad-
vantage of their opportunity
as best as they could. On first
down from their 24, Gary
Bryant ran one of Wewa's
favorite plays, the end around,
for a w-hopping 41 yards.
But once more, their offense
sputtered, and on fourth down,
a busted play gave Wewa the
ball on the 35.
Two plays later, after a
Dozier run and a pass recep-
tion by McFann, Wewa was
camped on. Freeports's 25.
Then with :59 left in the game,
Pippin ran the ball in from
121' yards out. Nelson was
stopped short of the goal line,
producing the final score, 44-0.
- Phillip Hall led the fine
defensive effort with one
tackle and 11 assists; Ira Mc-
Fann, 10 assists; Allen Nel-

son, two and six; and Henry
Vann, eight assists.
Clyde Gray had a good night
with 148 yards on the ground,
followed by Nate Dozier with
75 and Allen Nelson for 38. Tim
Pippin passed for 129 yards.

SSharks Have A Tough Night Against

Chipley Tigers Losing by 27-0 Score

The Sharks suffered their
fifth loss of the season Friday
night, bowing to the Chipley
Tigers, 27-0, in Chipley's sta-.
Port St. Joe displayed a
good defensive effort in the
first quarter, but just weren't
able to muster up an offensive
effort to round off their mo-

After being stopped on the 19
yard line in their own terri-
tory, the Sharks had to punt on
a fourth and 10, with 2:51 left
in the first quarter. From the
St. Joe 48-yard line, the Tigers
launched their first scoring
drive of the evening, one
which carried over into the
second quarter.
At first it looked as if the

Ronald Pickett catches a McFarland pass
to give the Sharks an 11-yard gain.

Sharks would stop the threat
after the St. Joe defense had
held the Tigers to a fourth and
one situation, but the Tigers
went for the first down and
marched down to the two-
yard line, when David Riley
pushed in for the first score of
the game. The extra point was
good, making the score 7-0.
With momentum on their
side, the Tigers took a St. Joe
punt on their next possession
and drove from their own 20
yard line to the Sharks' 16,
before David Riley took
the ball on a 16-yard play and
scampered across the goal
line with 1:50 left in the half, to
make the score 14-0.
The third quarter was
another superb defensive ef-
fort by the Sharks, but again
they couldn't get the offense
Chipley received the second
half kickoff and were held in
check, with the aid of a few
penalties, forcing them to punt
on a fourth down and 25, from
their own 17-yard line.
St. Joe took the punt and
worked the ball from their
own 39 yard line, down to the
Chipley 42, but couldn't keep
the offense going. St. Joe
grounded the ball on the Chip-
ley seven-yard line on the
punt, putting the Tigers deep
in their own territory.
Chipley worked the ball out,
though, all the way to the St.
Joe 44-yard line, but the drive
was slopped short by a fum-
ble, which was recovered by
Vic Gilbert for the Sharks.
On the first play from scrim-
mage. Duane McFarland step-
ped back and connected on a
nine-yard pass to Drexel Gar-
land. then Keith Neel picked
up the first down on the next
play with a five yard gain,

their own 16-yard line. A key
fumble on their first down
