Six Counts Filed TuesdayAgainst

Thomas McFater After Shooting

Thomas Steve McFater, age 23, was in Gulf County jail
yesterday morning, with six counts against him after a
shoot-out at 'Douglas Landing in the Dalkeith area Tuesday
According to Sheriff Ken Murphy, there seems to be no
explanation as to why McFater allegedly tried to kill his
father as he returned from a trip to town Tuesday.
Murphy said Deputies James Mock and Jack. Davilla
were dispatched to the scene of the disturbances after
neighbors called in reporting the shooting. The Sheriff said
testimony his deputies collected reported that T. L. McFater
was returning from a trip to town in a pick-up truck. In the
truck with the 'elder McFater was a baby girl, Elsha, the
child of the younger McFater. Thomas McFater was said to
be sitting in the road near their mobile home at Douglas

Landing as his father ahd child drove up.
Sheriff Murphy said the young man is then alleged to
have fired at the drivers' side of the pick-up truck with a 12
gauge shotgun, loaded with number four shot. The elder
McFater fell down into the seat to avoid the shotgun load,
which went through the windshield and the rear window of
the truck. The.younger McFater is then alleged to have
jumped up on the front bumper of the truck and shot through
the passenger side of the windshield. The father rolled over
into. the floor of the truck, then, over his young.
granddaughter, protecting her from the pellets and flying
glass. The only injuries received by the elder McFater was
cuts from the flying glass.
When Deputies Mock and Davilla arrived, the young man
was said to have run into a mobile home near the scene. The

Deputies followed into the mobile home, but McFater was not
there. They then began a search of the nearby woods and
came upon their quarry hiding behind some bushes.
When the Deputies cornered young McFater and ordered
him to surrender, he raised up from behind the bushes and
leveled the shotgun at the Deputies. Mock ordered him to
drop the gun and McFater complied with the order.
When the Deputies went to cuff the man and take him
into custody, he began to fight and resist arrest, but Mock
and Davilla overpowered him and made the arrest.
McFater was to go before County Judge David Taunton
Wednesday, for arraignment on charges of two counts of
attempted murder, one charge. of battery, one charge of
resisting arrest with violence and two charges of aggravated

Port Authority

Receives Seven

Bids for Study

The Port St. Joe Port Au-
seven firms oh Monday of this
week, who wish to have the job
of conducting the feasibility
survey for the new port here
on the edge of the Bay.
According to Port Authority
chairman, George G. Tapper,
all seven of the bids come
from blue-chip firms who are
well-known in this type of
Only one of the firms bid-
ding included a price in his
bid. All of the others indicated
that their fee is negotiable.
The Port Authority has a
grant of $50,000 to conduct the
feasibility study, which would
determine if a sufficient
amount of potential business
is available to warrant float-
ing revenue certificates to
construct the port facilities.
The study is all-important
since repayment of the con-,
struction,bonds will be guar-
anteed from. revenues gener-
ated by the port activity and
not by tax money.
Tapper said the Port Au-
thority will interview the sev-
en firms next week in personal
sessions. The interviews will
be conducted with company
representatives on Wednes-

day and Thursday. Friday, the
Port Authority will make a
selection of the three top firms
in their opinion, and conduct,
further interviews and negoti-
ations for rates from the final
three candidates the following
week. Final selection of the
successful study firm will be
made on October 31, with the
firm expected to begin work
on November 1.

Five Juveniles

In Custody

After Vandalism

Five young juveniles were
taken into custody late last
week, charged with vandalism
in several business establish-
ments here in Port St. Joe.
According to Police Chief H.
W. Griffin, the five boys stole
very little during their esca-
pades, but did considerable
damage to several buildings
and business houses in down-
town Port St. Joe.
The heaviest damage was
suffered by Roche's Furniture
ahd Appliances where the
vandals broke in, turned on
the water and left it running.
The running water flooded the
store Wednesday afternoon,
while the business was closed
and was discovered late Wed-
nesday afternoon.
Other damages were inflict-
ed on the St. Joe Hardware
Company and its warehouse,
the new office building of Dr.
P. V. Poonai currently under
construction, St. Joe Furni-
ture Company, the home of
Mrs. Paul J. Farmer and the

Union 76 Service Station.
Griffin said the young boys
stole -very little, but were
found with several reels, rods
and bicycle wheels in their
possession, which they' had
allegedly stolen. "They most-
ly concentrated their efforts in
just making a mess and
tearing things up", Griffin
said. ,
Chief Griffin said the five
boys have all been turned over
to the Department of Youth
Servtces-where they face -

Commission Makes Final Arrangements

to Get Plant Improvements Under Way

The City Commission took

vation, started over two years
When the project was first
started, engineers set a $1.4
million price tag on the pro-
ject, but inflation during the
two years which have elapsed
since planning began, has
upped the price by the $350,000
price tag.
Firm bids have been receiv-
ed and accepted by the City
for the last phase of the
program, which include com-
plete renovation and doubling
the capacity of the City's
20-year-old water treatment
plant. Construction on this
project will begin immediate-
ly after FmHA has put. its
name on the paper granting
the additional $350,000 loan.
The agency has already said it
would approve the increase in
the loan, accepting the in-
crease in the engineer's esti-
mates as a reasonable in-
crease under the present rate
of inflation.
The successful bidder of the
water treatment plant project,
W.E.D. Contractors, Inc., has
agreed to extending the length
of the contract by 30 days to
allow time to complete the
extra financing. FmHA has
intimated this will be enough
time for an extension and that
they will act on the matter
within that 30 day extension.
In addition to enlarging and
over-hauling the water treat-
ment plant, the project also
includes reclaiming two of St.
Joe Paper Company's old
water wells near the treat-
ment plant site, as a source of

raw water for the City. The
two wells, 'along with a new
well drilled two years ago, will
supply the City with water in
the future.
The City will be coming off
the St. Joe Paper Company
canal as a water supply
source, as the Company does
not have volume enotigh to
supply the City's present
In addition to the extension
of the water plant project for
30 days, the City has also
asked the Environmental Pro-

tection Agency for an exten-
sion of time in locating a
source of fecal choliform com-
ing from Sylvachem's plant
here in Port St. Joe,. which
isn't supposed to be getting
into the Wastewater Treat-
ment Plant. Sylvachem's al-
lowable effluent into the plant,
under the EPA permit, doesn't
include fecal choliform.
The firm has been notified it
would have to treat its effluent
before it reaches the Waste-
water Plant to get rid of the
objectionable material. Syl-
vachem is in the process of

hiring engineers to locate the
source of the objectionable
material and set up a means of
getting rid of it before it gets
into the City's system.
In making the application
for an extension, the appli-
cation points out these steps
are the only ones by which the
cause and remedy can be
affected and that they take a
certain amount of time.
In another item to come
before the Commission Tues-
day night, the Department of
Health and Rehabilitive Ser-

vices notified the Commission
it is required to designate a
parking space in downtown
Port St. Joe, where handicap-
ped persons may park their
vehicles and gain access to the
sidewalks on Reid Avenue
from a wheelchair.
It seems this requirement is
now federal law.
The Commission agreed to
put a sign on one parking
space on Second Street, where
there are no curbs to obstruct
the progress of wheelchairs
and put up a sign, designating
it as handicapped parking.

Casinos Will Cost Us

Money In Florida

If you didn't read the letter
written to The Star last week by
local attorney, Fred 'Witten, you
should have. Witten burst some rosy
bubbles being painted by the pro-
casino people concerning the mone-
tary benefits approval of casino
gambling would have for Florida.
Knowing Witten, we believe he thor-
oughly researched his statements
before he made them.
Witten noted that Floridians
now pay less taxes than Nevadans
pay, with their casino gambling
returns helping them out. That
would give one the impression that
casino gambling raises taxes rather
than lowers them. Also, Nevadans
are not able or do not support their
schools so richly as Floridians do at
this point. We use the word "richly"
facetiously since Floridians are well
aware of the cry of "not enough
money" made by Florida's school
people and their supporters.
While we we like Witten's argu-
ments against casino gambling, we

like the arguments of the attorney
representing the pro-casino move-
ment, even better. This attorney,
and we forget his name, stated in the
Florida press two weeks ago that
casino gambling would cost the
taxpayers of Florida ... at least for
the first 10 years.
If anyone would have reason for
painting a rosy financial picture of
what casino gambling would 'mean
for Florida, it would be the attorney
representing the move. He says the
approval will cost us money. tax
Since the pro-casino gambling
people are trying to sell their
step-child to the Florida voter on the
basis of how much it will mean to
Florida financially, what reason is
there to cast a "yes" vote on
November 7? Absolutely none!
We continue to urge you ,to vote
against approval of casino gambling
in November; not only to save us
money, but to preserve what little
moral climate we have left in this

must .expect to pay for it. This
payment, will be made by way of
income taxes, sales taxes, gasoline
taxes, intangibles taxes, corporate
taxes, exciseitaxes, etc., all of which
the consumer ultimately pays. Any
type of tax reform without reduction
of spending will still take into the
public treasury the same amount of
dollars from you.
Tax-reform, without spending
reform is just another way of putting
a different sugar coating -on the
calomel-tasting tax pill we are asked
to swallow so we can tolerate it more
to swallow now so we won't recog-
nize it when asked to swallow later.
Tax reform? Forget it. The only
tax reform we are interested in is
reduced taxes. There will be no
reductions; only a different manner
of taking.


I notes
29th Chapter of Job. Our "I"
gets in the way. Job desired to
be again in the limelight

where everyone held him in
reverence. He forgot who his
Lord was.
When people see us do they
see us pointing to JesUs? They
really should. Let's all deter-
mine to pur Jesus out front for
all the world to see.

REMEMBER THE pet rock?
A Spokane, Washington man is now attempt-
ing to launch a new national fad which will rival,
yea, even put in the shade, the pet rock.. He has
come up with and is strongly promoting his new
pet cow chip.
That's the truth. I have this word straight
from my sister-in-law in Spokane, who sent me a
newspaper clipping on the new product recently.
Marketing what he hopes will become a new
national fad is Bob L. Jasper. He is serious about
the idea, especially so since he has visions of it
making him a mint of money, just as the pet rock
did for its creators.
Jasper has come up with a pet cow chip
package which is shaped like an old fashioned
red barn, 6x4x3 inches in size. Inside the small
barn is a small piece of genuine cow manure,
enclosed in plastic, as Jasper says, "to prevent
the relationship between chip and owner from
Jasper already has two chain retail firms in
the Spokane area ready for marketing the pet
cow chip with visions of it being marketed
nationally in just a short while.
I don't think this new fad will catch on very
quickly. Already the American public is getting
so many free horse chips, from Washington,
D.C., that it hardly seems possible that a pet cow
chip from Spokane, Washington, which one has
to pay money for, will come across very strong.
Why pay for a pungent smell when you can
get an equally strong odor for free?

had then. Also it may account for the increase in
medical costs.

I READ in the Tallahassee Democrat last
Thursday where Charles Carroll and Nathan
Peters, Jr., were wondering why the Hospital
Board didn't meet last Tuesday as it was
supposed to. They posed the supposition in the
Democrat article that maybe the-. Board was
afraid to meet.
The Board didn't meet because member
James Roberts was in Tennessee on vacation
(which Peters should have known since they
work together), member Tom Coldewey was in
Jacksonville in court (and the judge wouldn't let
him miss in order to come here for a meeting)
member John Robert Smith phoned in about 5:00
p.m. reporting that he was ill and would not be in
attendance at the meeting. This was reported to
the two remaining board members between 5:00
and 5:30. This left only myself and Mayor Frank
Pate to attend. Since it is law that we must
have a quorum of three to meet officially, we
didn't meet.

Sharks Put Their Act Together -

Down Chattahoochee 33-0

, The Port St. Joe Sharks put
five touchdowns on the score-
board last Friday night, .to
drub the Chattahoochee Yel-
low Jackets, 33-0.
The Sharks' offense was
good for three of the scores
and the alert defense added
the other two tallies.
The Sharks started off with
a bang in the first period,
putting 14 points on the board.
With 5:15 left in the first
period, Dusty May, burst
through the line from five
yards out, to score. Taylor's
kick was good and the Sharks
led, 7-0.

were exciting ones for the
Sharks and dismal to' the
Jackets,, the last stanza was
dull for both sides. A see-saw
battle between both teams,
with penalties running up into
the danger zone, made the end
of the game welcome.
Again, the defense was the
standout performance for the
Sharks. Vic Gilbert paced the
tacklers with six tackles and
six assists. Blane Cox and
Dusty May were both close

behind with five tackles and
seven assists each. Ronald
Minger racked up five tackles
and five assists.
In other outstanding play,
Castledera Gant pulled in an
interception and returned it 50
yards and grounded a Shark
kick-off on the Chattahoochee
two yard line. Kenny Mason
returned an interception 22
yards to score a Port St. Joe
TD. Blane Cox had his 35 yard
scoring interception. Ronald

Pickett hauled in a Jacket
pass and returned it eight
yards. Michael Harris inter-
cepted a Jacket pass which led
to a score. Joey Raffield saved
a Jacket touchdown with his
recovery of Taylor's fumble.
Chuck Pollock caused a Jac-
ket to drop the ball and Tom
Bouington was right there to
pounce on it. Wherever the
ball was, there was a Shark.

Lightfoot Shows Rotarians

Versatility of 'Jaws of Life'

Bob Lightfoot, a member of
the Port St. Joe Squad of the
Gulf County Ambi Ser-
vice, presented a snde pro-
gram to the Rotary Club last
'Lightfoot's program dem-
onstrated the effectiveness of
the extrication tool, "Jaws of
Life" with his several picture
slides, along with a narrative,
telling of the usefulness of the
tool in rescue operations.

Lightfoot told the club the
ambulance service is current-
ly conducting a drive to raise
funds to purchase the equip-
ment, which can be used for
extricating victims from al-
most "'- ion in which an
injure. .. may be pinned
Lightfoot showed how the
tool could be used as cutters,
spreaders, pinchers, etc.
The'tool is operated by a

portable hydraulic pump
which develops five tons of
power and can be used in a
variety of applications.
Lightfoot said the cost of the
tool is $6,000. He said dona-
tions to the purchase are tax
deductible and donations may
be sent to the Gulf County
Ambulance Squad, P. 0. Box
808, or call Lightfoot or any
member of the Squad for
pick-up of donations.

This field of rice, located in what has been known for years in Gulf County

feasible the crip might be-in
this area.
The question was whether' or
not the crop was compatible to
growing conditions in Gulf
County. According to Steve'
Shoaf, crop foreman at MK
Ranches, it appears to be.
Now, 120 days after the crop
was planted, MK Ranches has
its answer. Ten acres of
golden tassels swaying in' the
sun, ready to be harvested. On
inspection, land clearing fore-
man Otis Davis pointed out
that it's .said for each inch the
tassel measures, rice is 'sup-
posed to yield 10 bushels per
acre. "Most of these tassels.
are about 10 inches long", said
Davis. "If this formula holds
true, the yield could be close to
,100 bushels per acre."
The test plot is located
between the Willis Landing
anrd Howard Creek roads,
adjacent to one of the farm's
drainage ditches. The. acreage
is surrounded by a retaining.
mound of dirt and within its
boundaries' are a series of
irrigation ditches running
throughout the plot to supply
the rice with much-needed
water during the growing
The drainage ditch, running
beside the plot, supplies the
more than 40 inche o-f water
required to matureTFe water-
loving plants.
Two weeks after the crop
was first planted, just as it
was coming up good, the field
was flooded and remained
flooded with ap average of five
i inches of water covering the
flat rice field. The rice "flour-
ished and;soon began to'
mature and tassel out as it
reached an average' height of
36 inches. Once harvesting is
completed it will be marketed
in Louisiana.
This crop turned out every
bit as good as MK had hoped,
according to Shoaf and Davis.
Davis confirmed that he has
already been ordered to pre-
pare 600 acres for next year's
planting. "Next year should
tell the whole story", says
Shoaf explained that they
would plan to get two crops off
in one season next year,
taking advantage of the long
growing season in this part of
the country. .
The crop would be planted in
the early part of March, then
harvested 120 days later, re-
fertilized, flooded and left to
get a second crop off of the
same plants.
First came the pine, then
the soybean and cattle, and
now the rice? It's definitely a
possibility and. even more so
now after, a successful test

Garden Club to

Sell Live Plants

Members of the Port St. Joe
Garden Club will be having a
plant booth at the Port St. Joe
Elementary School's Hallo-
ween Carnival this year. The
carnival will be held next Sat-
urday, Oct. 28.
Members of the club are re-
minded to bring their plants to
the Garden Center on Friday
afternoon, Oct. 27, so that the
plants can be priced. Anyone
in the community who wishes
to donate any plants for the

sale, may also drop them by at
this time. The Garden Cen-
ter is located on Eighth St., in
the old Catholic church build-
ing. This is an excellent op-
portunity to rid yourself of
those plants which you don't
have enough space for inside
during the winter months. At
the same time, it will benefit
the schools, as all proceeds of
the sale are being donated to
the Port St. Joe Elementary
School's PTA organization.

The Board discussed a letter
from the Northwest Regional
Library- System -with refer-
ence to' budget matters and
the possibility that the exist-
ing relationship between the
County and the Library Sys-
tem may be terminated be-
cause of the unwillingness or
inability of Gulf County to
provide its fair share of the
total expenses of the Regional
Library System. The Board
discussed this matter at
length. Commissioner,Ken-
nedy said the Gulf County
Library is not asking the
Regional'Library System for
any more service than we'pay
f dr&; that ,this- -mnmmission
would like to give theLibrary
the funds it requested and by
the same. token we would like
to give every other branch of
government or program with-
in the County budget the full
amount of their budget re-
quests. However, the tax
structure of our County can-
not produce sufficient money
to do this. He said that the
letter" from the Library Sys-
tem stated that the County did
not pay it's fair share but that,
in checking with other coun-
ties in the system, we found
we were paying our share. We
called each County and asked
for information as to the
amount .they were providing
the Library System in the
1978-79 budget and the per
capita costs. He said that at a
Gulf County Library Board
meeting a member of the
Regional System told those
present that the figures quoted
by Commissioner Kennedy in
a news article were 1977-78
budget figures; however, this
Board was informed that the
figures were actually for the
budget'year 1978-79. Commis-
sioner Branch told the Board
that he attended the Local
Library Board meeting and
that he assured those present
that the figures used in ,the
newspaper were the exact
figures we received from the
Courthouses in the various
Counties reported to us as
being for the 1978-79 year.

lation first informed him their

sary; however, they now in-
form us that their permit will

Florida's Finest Spiny Lobster
One of the finest delicacies from the sea, the Florida spiny
lobster is best if it can be cooked from the "green" or raw
form. During the harvest 'season and shortly thereafter, the
spiny lobster is available as live or frozen green whole lob-
ster or frozen green lobster tails. After the harvest season is
closed, most of the lobster is marketed as frozen cooked
whole lobster or cooked lobster tails. Lobster, that is pur-
chased cooked is best if it is served cold, in salads, steamed
just long enough to heat, or cut into bite-sized pieces and
heated in a sauce. But take care not to further cook the meat.
The Department of Natural Resources, Bureau of Marketing
and Extension Services, has tested many recipes for pre-
paring lobster and one of the simplest and best is the Baked
Stuffed Lobster. The secret of this recipe is to completely
cover the meat as well as filling the cavity with stuffing to
insure a tender, moist delicacy.

2 live lobster (1 pound each) / cu, grated Cheddar cheese
OR 2 tablespoons melted margarine or
2 frozen whole green lobster butter
(1 pound each) 1 tablespoon grated onion
1/ cups soft bread crumbs Paprika

Thaw lobster if frozen. Cut lob', half lengthwise.
Remove stomach and intestinal vein. Rinse and clean body
cavity thoroughly. Combine bread crumbs, cheese, butter
and onion. Ploce stuffing in body cavity and spread over,
surface of tt '. "- at. Sprinkle with paprika. Place on a
baking pan, 1,,n ..iches. Bake in hot oven, 400 degrees F.,
for 15 to 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Makes 2 ser-
It is difficult to split a live lobster. Placing it in the freezer
for 20 to 30 minutes will make it easier to handle and clean
without harming the quality of the meat.
