revealed Williams' plans, he will have
figures as to the actual cost of a high rise
bridge and will know by then if the federal
government will agree to financing a

Tapper said Williams especially wish-

JUST IN CASE I DON'T feel like coming up

Then when I get back, I'll pay me back for the
overtime I had to work to make up for the time
which I was gone.
SINCE I AM OFF TRAVELLING when I
should be writing this column, I guess the thing '
to do would be to talk about Governor Reubin
Askew's recent trip to Japan. Some said he
should have been in the Capitol in the Capital
tending to state business rather than off in Japan
living the big shot's life on our money.
"Our money" were the key words in the'
complaint as I recall.
The Governor and his party were alleged to
have spent something like $250,000 while in the
Land of the Rising Sun. All of this was to get
some of the Japanese business men to come do
business in Florida. In America, they call it
As I figure it, if the Governor and his
entourage were to take a dozen such trips, they
would spend enough money to pay for replacing
the bridge at Highland View with a high rise
structure. When you put it this way, the sum
spent for fun and frivolity, as well as travel first
class mounts up to a tidy sum. There is the school
of thought that the Governor and his people
should go "first class" wherever they went and
what ever they did. From looking at the bill, I
would say we would have no worries that we
were thought of as being chintzy. Foolish, yes,
but chintzy? No.
I don't see how a person can sit still and eat a
dinner he knows is costing $72.00 a person; even
if someone else is paying for it; If I look at a
menu and the steak I want costs $10.00 or over, I
start looking for something else to eat,
regardless of who is paying the bill. When it gets
right down to it, when the bill stops bouncing, it's
either me or the one I represent who is paying
the bill and I can't justify paying that much
money for a meal. Since the Governor doesn't
drink that high-priced fire water, I don't see how
his bill could have been $72.00 for a meal.
I don't mind the Governor going business
hunting for the State of Florida, we need it. It
would seem to us, that good taste and propriety
would dictate that he and his people at least limit
themselves to the travelling standard of top
executives and not as the Shah of Iran.
After all, we don't have that much oil in

Robert L. McCrary, Jr., Judge
PER CURIAM. (1)
We here for a second time consider a case which has been
aptly and colorfully described by the parties in their briefs as a
"can of worms". The facts are sufficiently recited in our prior
opinion wherein we said:
,The only issue for our determination is whether or not
the instant suit qualifies as a class action under Florida
Civil Procedure Rule 1'.220, 30 F.S.A."
(1) Costin vs. Hargraves, Fla. App. 1st 1973, 283 So.2D 375.
'"+++It is our conclusion that the appellants' conten-
that certain agreement dated November 19, 1951, executed by
the grantors herein and filed for record on the 26th day of
November, 1951, in Deed Book 22, page 108, of the public records
of Gulf County, Florida.
AND ALSO: All of those tracts, parcels or plots of land lying
Southeast of State Road No. 30 (U.S. Highway 98) and lying
between the North and South boundary line of each of the
following streets of Yon's Addition to Beacon Hill: Ward Street,
Ponce deLeon Street, Cortez Street, Desoto Street, Columbus
Street, Balboa Street, Magellan Street, Pineda Street, Atlantic
Street, Bay Street, Canal Street, Pine Street; if the boundary
lines of said Streets were extended perpendicular from said
State Road 30 to the seashore of the Gulf of Mexico; all lying and
being in Section 5, Township 7 Sout'h,-Range !11W6st of Gulf
County, Florida, together with all riparian rights appurtenant to
the aforesaid described plots and parcels of land.
land lying between U. S. Highway 98 and the mean high water
mark of the Gulf of Mexico adjacent to Yon's Addition to Beacon
Hill except for those rights effecting parts of the property
granted in the easement given by Basil E. Kenney, Jr. and wife,
Sarah Logan Kenney, dated November 19, 1951 and recorded
November 28, 1951 in Deed Book 22, page 108 of the Public
Records of Gulf County, Florida.
3. That the Defendants' interest or title in that land
adjacent to Yon's Addition to Beacon Hill lying between U.S.
Highway 98 and the mean high water mark of the Gulf of Mexico
according to their respective contracts or evidences of title are
in no manner abrogated, diminished or impaired by any claims
of the public or the Plaintiffs as set forth in the Second Amended
Complaint, and Defendants' respective titles are quieted
against all the claims of the Plaintiffs and the public.
4. That this Court reserves jurisdiction to tax cost in this

Florida, on this 9th day of July, A.D. 1974.

tions are sound and that this suit should not and cannot
be maintained as a class action.
"We therefore reverse the order of the trial court deny-
ing appellants' motion for an order declaring that this
suit cannot be maintained as a class action and remand
this case with directions to enter a final judgment dis-
missing the complaint, but without prejudice to allowing
further amendment to conform to this decision.
(Emphasis added; 283 So.2d at pages 376 and 377)
Despite the clear and explicit holding in our prior decision
appellants insisted in the trial court, and again here, that they
should be permitted to amend their complaint and proceed in a
class action. The trial court correctly held that we meant what
we said in our prior opinion and that they could not do so.
Appellants also urge that the trial court erred in entering a
summary final judgment, but we find no merit to that
We have also carefully considered the other points raised by
appellants and find them to be without merit.
Accordingly, the summary final judgment here appealed is

Dear Mr. Rogers:
Pursuant to your letter of December 23, 1977, I enclose herewith copy of letter from Architect
C. Dennis Evans which we agree to comply with in the construction of this building. In addition,
we will place the septic system and well at any reasonable location which you recommend. In fact,
either can be located off the lot if you recommend since I own the adjacent property on each side.
Although no structures.are permitted to be built on either side, the septic system will be under-
ground. At any rate, I would not want this to be held up as I understand it will be submitted for
recommendation in the January meeting.
Thanking you for your early attention to this matter, I am,
Very truly yours,

Top Crumb Crust
with Ice Cream, Fruit, Berries
From somewhere over the
rainbow came this idea for
Fruited Rainbow Pie, a
glamorous dessert that's easy
to do. Clouds of vanilla ice
cream and tart orange sher-
bet crown a gingersnap
crust. The topping consists
of pineapple chunks, straw-
berries and green grape
halves. It's spooned oVer the
ice cream just before serving.
Fruited Rainbow Pie is a
smashing dessert for an ele-
gant dinner party, but also
ts those occasions that call
for only dessert and coffee
or a sophisticated luncheon.
No one, except the host-
ess, can guess at the practi-
cality and ease of preparing
this dessert. Rolled ginger-
snaps mix with a bit of sugar
andbutter for the easy crust.
It's baked five minutes.
When cool and chilled, swirl
the ice cream and sherbet
alternately into the crust.
This much can be wrapped
and frozen since the fruit
and berries are added just
prior to serving.
Here's a tip for loosening
the crust: After removing
from freezer, dip the bottom
of the pie plate in water to
1 1/3 cups gingersnap
crumbs, boutt 20
3 tablespoons sugar
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter,
1 quart vanilla ice cream
1 pint orange sherbet
1/2 cup pineapple chunks'
in unsweetened pine-
apple juice, drained
1/2 cup fresh strawberries,
1/2 cup green grapes,
halved and seeded
1/4 cup Cointreau OR
If summer makes you yearn for far-away romantic places, let heavenly Fruited Rainbow
Pie transport you over the rainbow. Vanilla ice cream and orange sherbet swirl in a
crust of buttery gingersnap crumbs and sugar. Then it's topped with pineapple, grapes
To prepare Crust: Mix to-
gether crumbs and sugar;
stir in butter. Press mixture
firmly and evenly against
bottom and sides of a 9-inch
pie plate, building up
slightly around rim. Bake in
a preheated 350 F. oven for
5 minutes. Cool, then chill
crust in freezer. To prepare
Filling: Spoon ice cream
alternately with sherbet into
crust to give a swirled ap-
pearance. Return to freezer.
To prepare Topping: In a
small bowl combine pine-
apple, strawberries and
grapes. Toss with Cointreau
or orange juice; chill 1 hour.
Just before serving, spoon
fruit over pie.

Hunters Should Apply
Now for Reserve Permits
Hunters who have been
enjoying Florida's wildlife
management areas for the
past three years know the
significance of June 1.
But for the newcomer, the
Game and Fresh Water Fish
Commission would like to
point out that June 1 is the day
that quota hunt applications
"In order to hunt or possess
a gun on any wildlife manage-
ment area during the first nine
days of hunting season (Nov.
11-Nov. 19), a sportsman must
have a quota hunt permit,"
explained Fred Stanberry,
director of the Commission's
Division of Wildlife.
"We are going, into the
fourth year of the quota
permit system," he said,
"and, from all indication, it is
going very successfully."
Hunters may pick up an
application at county tax col-
lector's offices on June 1, the
same day wildlife manage-
ment area permit stamps go
on sale. Then, after filling out
the. form, indicating the areas
the hunter wishes to hunt in
during the first nine days, the
form is mailed to the Talla-
hassee office of the Commis-
"The quota for any area is

Tracking a national trend,
business failures in Florida
dropped over 34 percent last
year with only 171 businesses
failing as compared to 260
failures in 1976, the Florida
Chamber of Commerce said
January showed the fewest
failures with six and March
saw the highest with 31. Total
dollar liabilities involved in
these casualties also dropped
and toatled $85,318,000 a 66.2
percent decline from the over
$250,000,000 losses in 1976.
According to Dun & Brad-
street, 35,149 new businesses
were incorporated in Florida
during the same period, and
increase of almost 21 percent
from the previous year.
Nationally, there were only
7,919 business failures, the
smallest number in 25 years.
The South Atlantic States
showed the greatest lightening
in business casualty while the
West North Central States
suffered heavier failures.
The Florida Chamber of
Commerce said the federal
government will take an addi-
tional $314 in taxes from the
average Florida family this
year, increasing their total tax
bill to $4,360. By next year,
this tax burden is estimated to
climb to $4,640 for an increase
of $594 in just two years,
according to the Tax Founda-
In spite of these increases,
Florida's per household tax
burden remains 17 percent
below the national average of
$5,104 and is estimated to drop
even further below the natio-
nal average next year. Florida
ranks 36th in per household
burdens while the taxes range
from a high of $11,607 in
Alaska to a low of $3,532 in
Florida's total federal tax
burden ranks ninth with
$14,375 million of the $388,022
million federal budget.
Despite a killing freeze
early last year which des-
troyed many unprotected
plants, Florida continues to
lead as the nation's largest
producer of foliage plants, the
Florida Chamber of Com-
merce reported recently.
Accounting for 44 percent of
national sales, Florida pro-
ducers of foliage plants said
their products were valued at
$120 million last year, up $10
million from 1976.
The number of producers
increased by almost 7 percent
to 378 last year and expanded
production area to nearly 80
million sq. feet,
The Apopka area accounts
for 55 percent of the sales
while southeast Florida ac-
counts for 34 percent.
Florida continues to be the
largest producer of gladioli
with sales valued at $9.6
million. Second only to Cali-
fornia in the production of
pompons, Florida accounts for
25 percent of the total bunches
sold as growers saw dollar
returns of $9.8 million from
Spurred by an upward trend
in prices, Florida cattlemen
apparently have begun to sell
off parts of their herds swollen
by several years of depressed
values, according to the Flor-
ida Chamber of Commerce.
At the beginning of this year
there were 2.3 million head of
cattle in Florida, down 16
percent from a year ago. In
the meantime, prices are up
from a year ago with beef
cattle bringing $8.10 more and
cows and calves $11 more per
With milk prices increasing
50 cents per hundred weight in
the last 'year, Florida's milk
cow herd has remained stable
with 198,000 head.
Florida's commercial fish-
ing industry again harvested
more money than fish in 1976.
The Department of Natural'
Resources reports over 156
million pounds of fish were
caught bringing a dockside
dollar value of almost $88
million to the fishermen.
While the catch dropped
four percent from the previous
year, the Florida Chamber of
Commerce said the dockside
value increased 19 percent
which officials attribute to
strong price increases in al-
most all species of foodfish
and shellfish. This is the
second year in a row that
values have increased while
the volume declined.

Loss of Trees
In Home Value
Summer weather is upon us,
and Flqrida's tree-canopied
roads and suburbs are at the
peak of their splendor. If the
seasonal "improvement bug"
has bitten you and you're
planning any extensive con-
struction or relandscaping,
take time to think of your
Even the loss of one im-
Sportant tree can mean thou-
sands of dollars worth of
devaluation to your property.
Frequently the damage isn't
visible, and it may take as
long,as ten years before you
notice anything wrong. A few
simple precautions will stack
the odds in your favor.
Do all regular or necessary
pruning before construction
begins. This will minimize the
amount of careless damage to
Insist that trucks and other
vehicles be driven around
trees, not under them. Even
occasional traffic can serious-
ly compact the soil, leaving
your tree to die of slow thirst
Don't change the level or
kind of earth around a tree
without first considering all
the options. This is one of the
most subtle and destructive
things you can do to a tree.
Changes in ground level
usually involve a change in
ground-water level, a loss of
topsoil, and damage to the
feeding roots, which lie within
18 inches of the surface.
A system of dry wells and
drainage tiles can save trees
when the ground level is
raised. The system can be as
simple or elaborate as you
care to make it.
Topsoil should always be
replaced. Putting in low-
growing plants under the
entire spread of a tree's
branches can also help to
retain moisture and create
Actual cutting of the roots
should be avoided at all costs.
Terracing may be the best
solution if your plans include
any substantial lowering of
the ground level near any
Don't allow your trees to be
used indiscriminantly as
props, buttresses, or anything
else in construction work. If
tree-assistance is absolutely
necessary, then a safe method
can probably be found. But
trees play too important a role
in determining your home's
beauty and value: don't kill
one with'a bit part.
Your local county forester
can provide expert advice on
What precautions you'll need
to use, depending on your
plans, the topography of your
land and the kinds of trees

MAYBE YOU NEED A NEW CAR.
The last time you took your car in for repairs, did you get the feeling your
mechanic was looking to finance a month's vacation? In Madrid?
Maybe it's time you took one last look at your old car. And started looking at a new one.
The place to start is Florida National With Florida National's help, you can get
the car you want, new or used, with a monthly payment you can live with.
You can afford a new car. And your mechanic can stay home.
