In a special session Wednesday morning, the Port St. Joe
City Commission instructed its attorney, William J. Rish, to
take the necessary procedures to check the validity of a
recall petition recently filed against four of the five
Commissioners on the Board.
In Wednesday's session, attorney Rish was instructed to
ask the chief judge of the circuit to rule on whether or not the
petition and its charges were valid reasons to hold a recall
The Commissioners are taking the position that the
petition may not be valid in light of recent Supreme Court
decisions on like questions, which ruled that a recall was
permissable in these instances only when members of a
public governing body had broken the law or were
incompetent. Mayor Frank Pate, acting as the spokesman
for the Commission stated, "We have broken no laws and we
are not incompetent."
Earlier in the week, Nathan Peters, Jr., .who presented
the petition to City Clerk Charles Brock to be ratified, said, "I
think it (the petition) proved that enough people were
dissatisfied with the hospital situation. In my opinion, the
recall was the best way to get the feeling of the people. The
election will tell whether they are satisfied with the present
Commission or want a new one."
In Wednesday's action, Rish was instructed to ask the
chief judge to set an election date if the petition was valid.
With the City elections only a month away, and two of the
Commissioners on the recall petition up for re-election, the
recall petition affects only two of the subjects named, so far

as shortening their term on the Commission is concerned.
These two Commissioners, James B. Roberts and John
Robert Smith, have taken exception to the petition as being
valid and went into court yesterday to ask for a ruling that
the petition does not comply with the law with the charges
listed against them. Roberts and Smith went into court in
Marianna with their attorney, Mel Magidson, asking Judge
Robert McCrary to enjoin (prevent) the holding of a recall
In their petition, Roberts and Smith claim: 1) the petition
for recall does not comply with the law, and '2) the statute
under which the petition was filed is unconstitutional, vague
and indefinite.
In the complaint filed yesterday, Roberts and Smith
enter an example in which the State Supreme Court ruled in a
specific case before them, where only a violation of the law or
incompetence or immoral conduct were given as sufficient
reasons to recall an official.
The plaintiffs state that none of the charges listed on the
recall petition sufficiently describe malfeasance or misfeas-
ance, both acts of violation of the law.
Roberts, Smith, their attorney and Clerk Charles Brock,
representing the City, went to Marianna yesterday morning
to appear before chief judge Robert McCrary with their plea,
asking for a temporary injunction against the recall election.
They are also asking that Nathan Peters, Jr.,"chairman of
the petition committee, be enjoined from taking any further
steps with the recall petition.
In answer to this petition, Peters has stated, "They
neglected their duties."

Fire Department Has A Busy Week

Port St. Joe's Volunteer Fire Department had a busy
week end last week. Two fires Thursday called them to St.
Joe Paper Company and to the AN Railroad. A woods fire
Saturday, called them. to the cemetery and Ward Ridge
St. Joe Paper Company fire department took care of the
blaze at the mill, but the volunteers were called on to stand
by at the scene.
r AN Railroad workers were using a cutting torch on a
' .railroad car at the shops when sparks from the torch caught
'the car and surrounding grass and bushes on fire. The
department quickly had this one out.
Saturday morning, two men were using a cutting torch

on a junk car near Forest Park Cemetery when their torch
caught the woods on fire and before they could get it under
control, the fire was spread beyond their capabilities to
handle it. The department was called in, along with the
Florida Forest Service.
Saturday evening, the fire jumped George Washington
Branch and worked its way up behind Ward Ridge,
threatening several houses. Again the fire department was
called out to stop the advancing flames before they could
damage or destroy one of the homes in the area. Damage was
limited to a scorched shed behind one of the homes.
In the photo above, firemen are shown putting out the fire
near the railroad shops Thursday afternoon.

No More Extensions

The Municipal Hospital Board of
Directors drew the line Tuesday night
at their regular meeting. On a
unanimous vote of the Board, they
decided there will be no more
extensions of the hospital privileges of
Dr. Anila Poonai.
The Board voted to remove her
privileges of practicing in the hospital
in March on the advice of two medical
ad hoc committees which examined
the doctor's practice in the hospital
and recommended that her. privileges

be removed.
Twice since that time, the Board
has delayed final removal of the
doctor's privileges pending outcome of
a temporary injunction filed by her
attorneys against the Hospital Board
to maintain her privileges.
Federal Judge Winston Arnow has
the plea for the injunction before him
now in Pensacola. Both attorneys for
Dr. Poonai and the hospital are to
present briefs to Judge Arnow by the
end of this week for a final decision on

- Board

the injunction. While these legal
maneuvers have been going on, the ,-
Board has allowed Dr. Poonal to
continue practicing in the hospital
upon suggestions of the Federal Judge.
His last suggestion was that the
privileges be extended from April 1,
the end of the first extension, to April
15, to allow time for the arguments to
be presented.
The Board of Directors voted
Tuesday not to extend the privileges of
Dr. Poonai beyond April 15.

Luke 22:15, 19-20 (KJV)
Key Word: The Sacrificial
"(V-15) And he (Jesus) said
unto them, 'With desire I have
desired to eat this passover

(V-19) And he took bread,
and gave thanks, and brake it,
and gave unto them saying,
'This is my body which is
given for you: this do in
remembrance of me.'
(V-20) Likewise also the cup
after supper, saying, 'This cup
is the new testament in my
blood, which is shed for you.' "

cial Lamb prepared by God to
pay all debts owed because of
sin. By Adam sin entered the
world. By Jesus the debt of sin
was paid. Though the debt is
paid and a clear title. is

I'M GLAD TO SEE I'm not the only one who
makes mistakes. We, here at The Star had a
lu-lu made for us this past week.
Last Friday, we had a call from Top Dollar
Store's headquarters from up in Alabama
wanting advertising rates, insertion schedules,
etc. The man on the phone said, "We have four
-ads we wish to run during the month of April".
"You'll find us amenable to that", we told
the man.
Monday, the advertising copy for the entire
..month came in the mail... advertising a closing
'-out of the local business.
We ran the first ad Thursday of last week
and the first call I received was the manager
from the local store telling me, "Where did that
ad come from? I don't think we're going out of

r: Wesley R. Ramsey

business." I explained it came from her
headquarters. The next call I received was from
"headquarters". "Where are you located?" the
man asked me. I told him and he said, "Your
publication doesn't cover Parker?" I had to tell
him no, that was in Bay County and under the
circulation of the Panama City News-Herald.
Anyhow, to make a long story short, the man
discovered he had sent his ad to the wrong place.
It was the Parker store which was being closed
down. This one here in Port St. Joe is still alive
and doing well from last reports.
What I'd really like to hear is what went on in
the home office of Top Dollar when the mistake
was found.

BILL SIMMONS, our official unofficial
weather man, died last week after a bout with

cancer. Bill was an unusual man, even apart
from his hobby of meticulously keeping up with
the weather each and every day.
Bill was peculiar in that he was one of the
few men left in this world who told you exactly
what he felt and one could usually hang his hat
on what Bill said as being just as it was. He was
a man of much knowledge and many facts. He
believed in a man collecting only what he earned
unless he was truly incapable of earning.
Bill was especially proud of his role in
planning and guiding the local library to
construction. It was a fitting monument to Bill,
who dealt in things intellectual.

A RUSSIAN claims to have found the lost
city of Atlantis. Atlantis was supposed to be an
ancient civilization which sank into the sea many
years ago.
For all these years, most people have
considered Atlantis as just another fable or fairy
tale spun by one of the many ancient men who
made up such stories. I believe it was Plato
which told the story of Atlantis.
The Russian scientist claims he saw stairs
and ruins of buildings deep in the sea off
If the claim is true; if the storied Atlantis is

actually a fact, I would suggest we begin
immediately to look for the Land of Nod, Jack's
,Beanstalk, Never Never Land and wherever it
was Peter Pan called home.
That shouldn't be much more of a job than
putting a man onrthe moon. J

IT LOOKS'TO ME as if Idi Amin is on the
way out. The Tanzanians were practically in
control of his capital city when this was written
and had Amin's troops and friends from Iraq on
the run.
Idi won't be missed. There will be no tears
shed over his demise or dismissal, whichever
comes first.
The thing which amazes me is that there are
no bleats from the liberal press for the United
Nations to protect Idi. It looks as if everyone in
the world, except Idi, will be glad to see him go.
There will be no weeping words said over Idi
on his exit.

I MOVED Frenchie's daylilies out of my
garden Thursday evening and put in part of my
crop over the week end. There has been icy chill
in the house ever since Thursday evening, but
the daylilies are reposing on the edge of the
garden spot, awaiting new ground elsewhere.
I got my string beans put in the ground, my
tomatoes planted and headway made on the
squash, bell pepper and egg plant.
All of this is taking root in a spot about 10 feet
by 20 feet. It's just a matter of close communion
for my vegetables.
Now, comes the long weeks of fighting the
weeds and grass which will be forever trying to
reclaiming their former homestead on my plot,-
just as the Indians when they were chased out
the west.

Like everything else during
these times, the Dixie Youth
League is having money prob-
lems, according to McFar-
land. He says it now requires a
budget of around $8,000 to put
on the program for 14 teams.
"We started this season with
about $15.00 in the bank. We
get only about $4,000 from
sponsorship fees and player
registration, so this leaves a
pretty good chunk of money
which has to be raised by
parent participation in the
concessions stand and fund-
raising projects."
The -concession stand this
year will be run by parents of
the league members. McFar-
larid said a system has been
devised where the parents of
each team will manage the
stand one week during the
season. "We had an awful lot
of confusion when we had to
resort to having kids run the
stand", he said.
One of the ways the league is
saving on expenses is to line
up more parent participation
to perform tasks which were
paid for in the past. "We're
using parent volunteers for
umpires rather than pay for
the service", the league pres-
ident said. "In order to line up
parents on a schedule we have
given out volunteer booster
forms for parents to sign their
intent, to help us during the
Also as a fund raising
project, the league is selling
T-shirts with the Dixie Youth
emblem, bumper stickers,
window decals and patches.
The Dixie Youth League this
year is branching out into new
programs to involve the boys
and parents.
Last Saturday, two of the
major league teams, the Doz-
ers and Hard-Stars, played an
exhibition game in Panama
City at Oakland Terrace and

won both games. This helps
boys get accustomed to com-
peting with boys from other
cities, which helps them get
rid.of the butterflies at tour-
nament time.
The league has a new public
address system, for use'at the
games this year. The system
was donated by Gulf County
Sheriff Ken Murphy.
In order to help the financial
picture, the league is sponsor-
ing a ladies softball tourna-
ment, starting Friday night,
April 20. All proceeds will go
toward helping operate the
league this year. Wayne Par-
rish is acting as tournament
In starting up the current
season, McFarland said, "The
policy of Dixie Youth baseball
is to promote the development
of strong character, a right
'attitude and a sense of respon-
sibility and citizenship in
youngsters, using the game of
baseball as a vehicle".
The league president said,
"The purpose of Dixie Youth
baseball is to achieve this goal
through fair play, good sports-
ianship and congenial fel-
lowship with adult leaders
providing the example." Fur-
ther, he said it was strictly
against the policy of Dixie
Youth baseball for any person,
either as a participant or a
spectator, to engage in argu-
ments, to use abusive lang-
uage, to harrass umpires or to
exhibit any behaviour not in
keeping with the general
intention of the program.
Games will be played each
afternoon, Monday through
Friday. The first game each
afternoon will begin at 5:30
Three games will be played
each Monday, Tuesday,
Thursday and Friday after-
noon, with two games on tap
each Wednesday.

Springtime Slimmer
Warm spring days and romantic spring evenings conjure
S up visions of a vibrant new "you"! These visions probably
"feature a slim, energetic and healthy "you".
Visions become realities through a regimen of exercise,
-rest, and a healthy diet chock-full of vitamins, minerals, and
.protein. Seafood is one of nature's most delicious and
, nutritious additions to our food choices.
All seafood is low-calorie, which makes dieting more a
--challenge than drudgery. Four ounces of fresh, raw shrimp,
,'for example, contains only 103 calories compared to the 450-
plus calories contained in 4-ounce portions of other popular
.'protein sources.
" Variety in preparation is another seafood plus. Broiled,
. boiled, smoked, or barbecued, shrimp maintain their "just-
one-more" taste appeal.
Cantonese Shrimp and Beans is just such a recipe, Shrimp
:-and green beans are cooked to the tender-crisp state,
'traditional in Cantonese cookery. Chicken broth, onion,
and garlic then join to serve as a sauce for the shrimp-green
bean mixture. A light touch of ginger highlights this
slimming seafood dish for six. 130 calories (per serving)
-;never tasted so good!

?1%/ pounds frozen, raw, peeled, deveined shrimp
11/2 teaspoons chicken stock base
r1 cup boiling water
'V4 cup thinly sliced green onion
.1 clove garlic, crushed
-'1 tablespoon salad oil
.,1 teaspoon ginger
:Dash pepper
1 package (9 ounces) frozen cut green beans
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon cold water,

Thaw frozen shrimp. Dissolve chicken stock base in boiling
water. Cook onion, garlic, and shrimp in oil for 3 minutes,
,stirring frequently. If necessary, add a little of the chicken
' broth to prevent sticking. Stir in salt, ginger, pepper, green
ztbeans, and chicken broth. Cover and simmer 5 to 7 minutes
J.longer or until beans are cooked but still slightly crisp.
JCombine cornstarch and water. Add cornstarch mixture to
3 shrimp and cook until thick and clear, stirring constantly.

.Going to Close Dam to Fishing Unless We Get

:County Commissioner Jim-
my Gortman stated Tuesday,
"rn going to vote to close the
Dead Lakes Dam to fishing
unless we can get some help."
..The help Gortmran was
referringg to was aid in keeping
people from making a gar-
*Iage dump of the area and
parking their vehicles on the
bridge while they go fishing.
Gortman said the sloppy
housekeeping of the fishermen'
keeps the area smelly and in a
mess and the practice of
parking on the bridge ob-

structs traffic and is extreme-
ly dangerous.
Gortman received the sup-
port of the entire Commission
in calling for the Sheriff's
Department, the Wewahitch-
ka City Police and the Game
Commission officers in polic-
ing the area. "Make a case
against those people who mess
up the area and park their
vehicles on the bridge and
you'll stop the problem",
Gortman said.
Commissioner Leo Kennedy

attempted a maneuver to
side-step a requirement made
at the last meeting by the
Board which would require
that all new subdivision
streets be paved by the
developer before the County
would accept the plat.
Kennedy made a motion
that a subdivision could be
accepted if it was written into
the acceptance the county
would not pave the streets. If
the streets were paved in the
future, the property owners
would be assessed for the

paving costs.
Kennedy's motion died for
lack of a second.
Robert Nations of Florida
Engineer Associates of We-
wahitchka. was the first to be
turned down .under the more
stringent subdivision re-
quirements which requires an
examination of all plats by the
County Administrative Assis-
tant Tommy Pitts to see if the
plat comes within the require-
Nations presented a plat of a

subdivision inside the city
limits of Wewahitchka stating
the Wewahitchka City Com-
mission had approved the plat
and didn't come under the new
requirements because it was
inside the Wewahitchka cor-
porate limits.
Chairman Billy Branch and
Commissioner Birmingham
both expressed the fear the
county would have a liability
in the matter if their man
didn't examine the plat before
Nations didn't much like it.

torney Rish that he had

claiming the Commission was
changing rules in mid-stream
on him. He said he had
presented such a plat recently
and had it approved without
any hassle.
Birmingham said, "We re-
quire paving outside the city.
We can't allow the cities to put
sub-standard areas on our
books without paving and
expect us to do it later. It isn't
fair to the developers outside
the cities."
The Commission finally de-
cided to send a letter to both
cities in the County requiring
that all subdivisions in their
limits must be approved by
their officer before being
presented to them for accept-
ance and that it must meet
their regulations.
In another road problem,
residents of White City had
requested the speed limit
through their community be
lowered to 25 miles per hour to
stop the speeding vehicles
through their community.
Attorney Rish was instruct-
ed to request the DOT to make
'a survey of the area. Rish
reported back to the meeting
Tuesday that a survey showed
85 percent of the people going
through White City exceeded
the speed limit.
Sheriff Ken Murphy said
this was somewhat mis-lead-
ing. "The average speed of
vehicles through White City is
43 miles per hour in a 40 miles
per speed zone. The fastest
vehicle clocked in the survey
was travelling 59 miles per
hour." Sheriff Murphy then
asked, "How are you going to
arrest a motorist for going 43
miles per hour in a 40 mile
He has a problem.

tat a fence around the lift
station was not located cor-

discussed the County recrea-
Etioal program. He said that
(his Board is one of the
Riancial sponsors of this
program and should have
agiething to say as to its
operation and programs. He
ijr told the Board that the
Wewahitchka Little League

btrt that the Wewahitchka
Director of the County Recre-
itional Program had done
,i.ibing to assist this group in
getting started. The Board
detected that a letter be

had questions of the amount of damage to
county roads and road shoulders and
inconvenience caused to Gulf County citizens
during construction.
Birmingham said the county should have
some kind of protection for its residents.
Birmingham also opposed any suggestion
of forcing people to pay for sewage service
whether they want it or not. Birmingham's
objection was taken because of a. requirement
of Farmers Home Administration, who lends
money for these projects, which requires all
people who can hook. to the services when
provided to do so or pay their portion of the
loan money.
Birmingham suggested a public hearing
in Gulf County to find out the feelings of
residents in the three communities - St. Joe
Beach, Beacon Hill and Gulf Aire. The
attempt was voted down.

written to Honorable -Walter
Wilder, Superintendent of
Schools, asking him to look
into this matter and direct
that some consideration be
given to the Little League.
The Board discussed a re-
quest by a land owner in the
Hanlon Estate property on the
Dead Lakes. The owner re-
quested the County to pave all
roads in an unrecorded sub-
division in payment for the
County extending a road right
of way across his. property
line. The Road Superintendent
explained that he used the
same easement width on this
property as the road that
connects this new County
road, but later learned that
the new road was not as wide
as the old road. The Board
directed the Road Superinten-
dnet to pull the right of way off
this property and to repair any
damage done. *
The'Board did then consider'
'. adoptingtwonew. priority lists
for road construction and
resurfacing;' one list to con-
tain projects for a proposed
bond issue and the second list
for projects to be done by the
County Road Department; the
Board considered each prior-
ity as listed in Resolution 79-2,
dated February 27, 1979, and
certain other roads 'and
streets not listed in said
resolution. After very lengthy
consideration, two lists were
selected. A copy of the lists
are on file in the Clerk's office.
Motion by Commissioner
Branch, second by Commis-
sioner Tankersley, that if the
Bond Issue Program fails all
priorities ,will revert to those
listed in Resolution 79-2. Vote:
Aye - Branch, Tankersley.
Nay - Kennedy, Gortman, and.
Birmingham. (Failed)
There was a motion by
Commissioner Birmingham,
second by Commissioner
Gortman, that if the bond
issue fails priorities set at this
meeting will remain in effect,
but without designation as to
contract and County work.
Vote: Unanimously carried.
There was a motion by
Commissioner Gortman, se-
cond by Commissioner Bir-
mingham. that James Drive

(not listed on priority list) be
established as number 21
on the bond list. Vote: Unani-
mously carried.
There was a motion by
Commissioner Branch, second
by Commissioner Kennedy,
that all unpaved streets in
Beacon Hill, St. Joe Beach,
and Highland View be added
to the bond list as number 22.
Vote: Aye - Branch, Kennedy,
Tankersley, and Gortman.
Nay - Birmingham. Commis-
sioner Birmingham said he
could not vote for this motion
because it was too broad to
know what was involved.
The Chairman requested the
Administrative Assistant give
-the Board an estimate of the
cost of this program.
There being no further
business, the meeting ad-

nissioniers 'f Gulf County
Florida,. met Marth. 22 in
special session for the purpose
of interviewing engineering
firms who were selected from
the: respondents to the Com-
mission's advertising for en-
gineering services. The fol-
lowing members were pre-
sent: William R. Branch,
Chairman, James L. Tanker-
sley, Douglas C. Birmingham,
and Jimmy 0. Gortman. Also
in attendance was Adminis-
trative" Assistant Tommy
The meeting was called- to

Another possible community will be
affected by the sewer main being laid to Port
St. Joe. A study is currently being authorized
by the County to make a study of Highland
View with the possibility of hooking that
* community on the sewer main and providing
a collection system for the community.
The Mexico Beach proposal is to run a
10-inch sewer main along the state right of r
way on Highway 98 to the sewage treatment
plant at Port St. Joe. The City of Port St. Joe
has told Mexico Beach they will accept the
raw sewage for treatment if it is brought to
the plant. Port St. Joe and Mexico Beach are
currently in negotiations to work out a fee for
the' treatment service.
The sewer main would require a pumping
station in the eastern part of Mexico Beach
and one in Highland View, to force the sewage
along the line.

The system is now in its planning stages.
Previously Mexico Beach had plans for an
irrigation disposal system, similar to the City
of Lynn Haven. but problems with the Lynn
Haven site has turned their attention in the
direction of Port St. Joe's treatment plant.
Estimated costs for the project -would be in
the vicinity of $3.4 million.
Commissioner Leo Kennedy said a recent
survey at the beaches revealed that "90
percent" of the residents there favored water
at almost any cost. primarily to take them off
water wells and to enhance fire protection by
adding fire hydrants.
The plan was presented to the County
Commissioners in a special meeting Thurs-
day night by Mexico Beach Mayor Bob Hale
and their engineer. Gil Mauriello of J. B.
Converse Company.

Historical Society Holds

Memorial Service Sat.

The St. Joseph Historical
Society held a memorial ser-
vice for one of their original
members, Ruth Costin Soule,
Saturday, April 7 in the
library meeting rooms:
When old friends and rela-
tives think of Ruth Costin
Soule our minds turn to nature
as Ruth was an outdoor girl, a
sportswoman in every sense of
the word. Swimming, hunting,
fishing, boating, horseback
riding, and hiking over the
countryside were every day
events in her life. Ruth was a
fine athlete and was on Port
St. Joe's first basketball and
track teams. Nearly all of her
life was spent in and around
Port St. joe.
Horace Soule came into Port
St. Joe as mate on a four
masted schooner (The Sin-
tram) owned by the Soule
Shipbuilders, about 1924 to

ship .lumber from the Park-
wood Lumber Company. He
and Ruth were introduced and
they immediately fell in love.
The wife of the captain of the
schooner was to make the next
trip down from Boston to Port
St. Joe and she invited Ruth to
make. the return trip with
them. This was planned for a
year but Mrs. Costin became
ill and Ruth, as always, put
her family's welfare above
her own pleasure.
Horace and Ruth were mar-
ried in the old Methodist
Church which was entirely
decorated with fall leaves and
woods flowers. To this union a
son, Horace Jr., was born.
Early in life Horace Jr.
became an invalid: and Ruth
spent all of her time with him.
Her courage, devotion, faith,
and fortitude will always be
There was an inner part of
Ruth that few people knew. An


artistic side. She painted
beautifully with never a les-
son. Her paintings were ones
familiar to this area; boats,
ships, and sea scapes.
Ruth was a poetess. Al-
though she had none of her
poems published, she com-
piled them into a booklet
which her family has kept.
Her descriptions are so
vivid of early landmarks of
this country as to put Charles
Dickens in the shade. Her
descriptions of these ordinary
landmarks are so imaginative
that the reader can only know
that she was not looking with
ordinary eyes.
Ruth was a Charter Member
of the old St. Joseph Cemetery
later called St. Joseph Histor-
ical Society and always an
avid gardner, she worked
diligently and tirelessly for
the beautification and preser-
vation of the old Acropolis.
Ruth Costin Soule was loved
and will always be missed by
members of the St. Joseph
Historical Society.

Hutto Opposes Closing of

Gasoline Stations On Weekends

Calling for a more realistic
and equitable approach to
Energy Savings, Congress-
man Earl Hutto urged mem-
bers of Congress to reject the
resolution approving Standby
Conservation Plan No. 1,
which prohibits the sale of
gasoline or diesel fuel on
In a speech to the House,
Hutto said: "I oppose it

it places undue, hardship on.
certain sectors of the econo-
my, primarily the tourist
industry, and is in violation of
the energy Policy and Conser-
vation Act of 1975 which calls
for a reasonable distribution
of the burden on all sectors of
the economy. My state alone
would lose $8 million in sales
volume; $22 million in tax
income; and place 29,000
persons out of work."'!
In his closing statement

Hutto urged Congress to reject
Standby Conservation Plan
No. 1 and "...adopt a more
realistic and equitable ap-
proach to energy savings
which would decrease de-
pendence on foreign oil, in-
crease domestic supplies of
oil, develop alternative uses of
energy, and encourage sensi'-
ble petroleum consumption:
without destroying important--
sectors of the economy."
Earlier Congressman Hutto.-
had contacted President Cair-
ter opposing the prohibition of-.
gasoline sales on weekends -
and had recommended that:-
states be allowed to developa'-
their own plans to conserve
energy. On the evening of
April 5, the President did--
indicate that he would set:7

Rich said. "We painted two
crosses there and built a new
one to replace one that had
gotten beyond repair."
At The Haven, they put a
new floor in what will be a
shower room, making it now
ready for the plumbers. They
also re-roofed a tool shed,
raked pine straw, did heavy
cleaning, fixed furniture and
repaired E basketball court.
The men lived at the Home
of Grace, each sharing a room
with a resident, while the
women on the team stayed at
The Haven.

The kindness and sympathy
shown to us by our relatives,
friends and neighbors during
our time of sorrow will always
be remembered.
We extend a special thanks
to Rev. Ernest Barr and the
Comforter Funeral Home. It is
such a comfort to know that so
many people share our loss.
