Water Spout Strikes Highland View

Rapidly changing temperatures Tuesday night and
unstable weather conditions spawned a water spout in St.
Joseph's Bay and the spout roared into the Highland View
area about 1:30 Wednesday morning, according to the Gulf
County Sheriff's Department.
Sheriff Ken Murphy said the spout crossed Highway 98
near Second Street in Highland View, coming from the
The spout stayed in the air, and didn't touch down on the

ground until it reached the extreme eastern end of Fourth
Street, when it slammed into two mobile homes at the end of
the street, owned by L. C. Wood and Charles Posey. Still the
spout didn't cause as much damage as it could have.
The spout lifted a porch from the backside of the Posey
home and tossed it over the home into the front yard,
demolishing the shed. A shed in the Posey back yard was
blown next door, where it struck the rear of the Wood

residence, knocking out some windows in the home,

Danny Kennedy, who lives adjacent to Highway 98 near
the corner of Second Street in Highland View, said he heard

Kennedy said, "It scared the starch out of me".

Two Apprehended

Following Robbery

According to Sheriff Ken
Murphy and Chief of Police
Roy Robinson, two persons
were arrested Monday night,
Jan. 22, just minutes after
they allegedly took $112 from
the Phillips 66 station in Port
St. Joe. Patrolmen Phil Mc-
"eod a and Deputy James Mock
Arrested William Filmore, age
21, at the corner of Avenue C
and Main Street. Lorenzo
Dunn, age 21, was arrested a
few minutes later on Main
Street by Sgt. James McGee.

Ninety dollars of the money
has been recovered.
The two men had gone to the
service station to get some
anti-freeze. While Dunn was
talking to the station opera-
tor outside, Fillmore alleged-
ly went inside the station and
removed $112 from the cash
register. They fled in a red
Ford pickup. The two were
taken to the Gulf County jail
and booked for grand theft,
after they were apprehended.

matter of business when they
re-convened was a request for
another ordinance.
This time, Margaret Biggs
of White City, asked the
Commission to adopt an or-
dinance prohibiting the dump-
ing or storage of any nuclear
wastes or other poisonous or
hazardous substances in Gulf
Mrs. Biggs said her request
would head off any attempt to
locate a talked-about nuclear
and hazardous substance
waste storage area for north
Florida in Gulf County.
The Board agreed unani-
mously to introduce the ordin-
ance, which must be adver-
tised for a public hearing
before it could be adopted.
Mrs. Biggs then asked the
county to request other' north
Florida counties to adopt the
same ordinance.
County Administrative As-
sistant, Tommy Pitts told the
Board that Mexico Beach has
requested a permit from the
county to install a water
distribution system in Beacon
Hill. Pitts said the permit
request and plans were all in
order and recommended the
request be granted.
Mexico Beach has just re-
cently installed a large water
main through Beacon Hill and
to Gulf Aire Estates.
The Board agreed to grant
the permit, but with the
stipulation that the system be
installed before the streets in
the subdivision were repaved
under a planned paving pro-
ject. "There will be no cutting
of the streets after they are
paved", the Board agreed.
In other water matters, the
Board was notified by Stubbs
and Hannon, Realtors, of
Tallahassee, developers of
Cape Breeze Estates on St.
Joseph Peninsula that they
were making plans to put
down a six inch water well and
install a distribution system to
points and developments on
the Peninsula.
The developers had consid-
ered running a water line from
the city of Port St. Joe to the
peninsula for a water supply.
Attorney Rish advised the
Board they had no decision to
make on the matter before
them. "Your acceptance of a

duPont Estate to Hike Donations

Trustees of the Alfred I. duPont
estate agreed last week to start making
hefty donations to Delaware and
Florida charities for crippled children
and the elderly, averting a series of
lawsuits against the $1.1-billion estate,
according to a story from the Associat-
ed Press.
Attorney General Jim Smith said
he, Jacksonville State Attorney Ed
Austin and Delaware Attorney Genieral
Richard S. Gebelein negotiated the
agreement on behalf of beneficiaries of
the will of the late du Pont.
The agreement was signed in
Jacksonville by the trustees and Circuit

Judge Thomas D. Oakley.
Gebelin filed suit against the du
Pont estate last year, claiming 91-year-
old financier Edward Ball of Jackson-
ville and. other trustees of the charit-
able trust weren't donating enough
money to Delaware charities, as
required by the du Pont will.
He noted the trustees have paid out
only about $5 million a year since the
death of du Pont's widow in 1970 made
the estate a charitable trust. The only
year they exceeded that amount was in
1978, when the trustees donated $21.6
million to various charities as well as
$34 million to build a hospital for

crippled children.
Florida law requires charitable
trusts to disburse 3 percent of the value
of their assets each year. That means in
1979, when the value of the trust was
estimated at $1.1 billion, donations
should have exceeded $33 million.
Austin and Smith also threatened to
file suit against the trustees last -year
for not carrying out instructions of du
Pont's will. Austin chastised the
trustees for bickering about who should
be in charge of the estate.

A local firm is taking strong measures to
meet the oil crisis. Sylvachem Corporation is
currently installing a boiler at its Port St. Joe
plant to utilize an alternative fuel called pitch.
This new boiler facility will immediately reduce
Sylvachem's dependence on oil by approxi-
mately one-half, according to R. H. Bennett,
Operations Manager.
Pitch is a Sylvachem by-product from the
distillation of crude tall oil, which is itself a
paper mill by-product. The end products from
the tall oil distillation process at Sylvachem find

many uses, including paints, adhesives and
printing inks. The pitch by-product also finds
many uses in the market place, but because of
recently increasing fuel oil prices it is becoming
more valuable as a fuel. Other by-products are
also being considered as fuels, potentially
reducing even further the dependence on fuel oil
and natural gas.
Because of the urgency of the current oil
crunch, Sylvachem has undertaken this project
on a crash basis. Engineering work began on the

boiler last October, and the company plans to
start operating the facility in February. The
project is being managed and engineered by
James Loyless and Blaine Casali of Sylvachem's
engineering department.
Sylvachem is a joint venture between SCM
Corporation and St. Regis Paper Company. The
new boiler facility meets all regulations of the
Florida Department of Environmental Regula-
tions and has been granted all applicable

Editorials and Opinions


Getting too Crowded to Infringe On Our Neighbors

How would you like it if the property
shown in the accompanying photograph was
located next door to you?
You wouldn't like it, would you?
But, if you happen to live in Gulf County,
outside the limits of the two municipalities in
the county, you could very well be faced with
such a neighbor. If you ever are, there is
: nothing you can do about it, except grin and
bear it. There is no law against your neighbor
creating a mess next to your property,
regardless of the number of vermin such a
condition is breeding.
By the time this page is printed, the
County Commission, in all likelihood will have
considered an ordinance to prevent such a
nuisance, prepared for them by their attorney,
.at the Commission's request. If the Commis-
:sion has agreed not to adopt their present
:version of an anti-nuisance ordinance, they
;should not let the matter lie idle for any
amount of time, but immediately start work
:on another version of a related ordinance.
At the first public hearing on an
:anti-nuisance ordinance, one visitor remarked
:the reason he lived outside the municipality
,was so he could live as he pleased. The actual
:fact is that a person has less likelihood of
1"living as he pleases" outside a municipality
:in Gulf County than those who live within the
:regulated boundaries of the two cities. In most
:of Gulf County, one lives as his neighbor

decides. If a neighbor decides to live like a
slob and the other neighbor wants a nice, neat
place in which to abide, guess which one gets
his way!
Nobody is trying to give anyone a hard
time in the county. It is the duty and
responsibility of everyone who lives in the
county, even those who wish to live as they
want to, to respect their neighbors by keeping
their property neat and free from debris which
attracts and provides a breeding place for
Nobody is trying to hard-time anyone into
doing away with their "good junk". There are
ways to collect and keep things without being
a blight on the neighborhood. Being a blight on
the neighborhood is all the ordinance
addresses, and because of this, we think it is a
good ordinance.
Nobody wants to dictate to another what
he can and cannot do, but when a person
begins to infringe on the rights of his
neighbors, he is in the wrong and the wronged
neighbor needs some sort of recourse.
The County Commission unanimously
agreed the county needed some sort of
anti-nuisance ordinance for protection of
health and ascetic reasons. One was adamant-
ly against the proposed ordinance and another
didn't know whether he favored that particu-
lar model or not. We're not particular whether

or not they adopt the present version, but we
think it is the duty of the Commission to adopt
some sort of guidelines to control what is now
uncontrolled practices of disposal of unwanted
items throughout the county. We think this is
one of the duties of the County Commission.
We're getting too crowded to throw our

garbage out of the back door and just let it lie
there until it rots. We're getting too crowded to
allow old half-burned buildings to stand as a
stark reminder that the property owner does
not have enough pride in his environs to clean
up the mess. We're getting too crowded to
infringe on the rights of our neighbors.

this year. Somebody gave Frenchie and
I a little gadget which will poach, boil or
hardboil two eggs and automatically
turn off when the eggs are cooked. It's a
cute little gadget to add to the
collection, and we use it on occasion for

the morning egg.. when we have eggs
for breakfast.
Had Christmas waited only two
weeks more to come along, the person
or persons iwho gave us this egg cooker

could have given us an egg scrambler.
Some inventor has come up with an
electric gadget which will scramble an
egg... in the shell. When you break the
egg which has been subject to the
machinations of this gadget, it is
perfectly homogenized and ready for
putting in the pan for an instant
scrambled egg.
The world needed that machine.

One of life's longest moments and
most tedious tasks is the 30 seconds it
takes to take up a fork and whip up an
egg for scrambling. Now, we are
relieved of another chore.
Let's hear it for the in-shell egg
scrambler. It will surely go down in
history of important inventions along-
side the light bulb, sewing machine and
apple peeler.
OUR VOTE for "Mr. Charisma" of

He exudes interest, enthusiasm and
a large portion of blah.
WHY CAN'T THE advertising
market burst into bloom like the gold
market has done? I don't have any gold,
but I do have a smidgen of advertising
space I could sell each week.
The only things which seem to go up
are the things I have to buy. It looks like
the law of averages would catch up to

me sooner or later and something I had
to sell would take off into the wild blue
yonder and I would make my bundle.
The precious metals market is
getting to my pocketbook. Last week, a
supply' salesman came in and announc-
ed, with a poker face, like he was giving
me the time of day, that the photogra-
phic paper and film we use so much of
around here, will increase by 75 percent
in price this month.
Seventy-five percent increase at
one time.
Every letter of type we set, every
picture, every page we print, every
illustration we use, must use a piece of
photographic paper or film to get into
print. The papers and film are a basic
in our business, and it takes a 75
percent jump in one day.
Life is getting tedious.
The only thing good about the
metals market is that the United States
is getting out of debt. With our horde of
gold at Fort Knox, and the increasing
price of gold, we'll be able to pay off the
national debt in just a short while, if we
can find anyone with enough money to
buy the gold.

his own opinion being that
despite these ideas 'We are
still very nice people". He said

the same. He concluded by
saying, "I am proud to be an

Sharks Have 5-Day Win Streak

Edge Out Bay High, Wewahitchka, Apalachicola

Port St. Joe's Sharks tamed
the Bay High Tornadoes here
last Thursday night, dumping
the Bay County team, 58-49.
The Sharks jumped off to a
18-12 lead in the first period
and were never behind. The
Tornadoes out-scored the
Sharks in only one period, the
second, when they put only
two more points on the board
than did the Sharks. The Port
St. Joe quintet had a 32-28
bulge at half time.
Ricky Larry paced the
Sharks with his 18 points.
Kevin Cherry added 14 and
Castledara Gant 13 in the
winning effort.

point deficit in the first period
last Saturday night, to a 59-53
win over the Wewahitchka
Gators. The Sharks had lost to
the Gators earlier in the
season here in Port St. Joe.
Before the first half was
over, the Sharks had ran up a
six point lead and added an
additional point to their mar-
gin in the last period for their
ninth victory of the year,
against four defeats.
Castledara Gant was the big
gun for the Sharks, pouring in

22 points. Other Sharks in
double figures were Kevin
Cherry with 14 points and
Ricky Larry with 13.
Tim Taunton led the Gators
with 15 points. Memphis Keith
added 14 and Allen Jackson,

The Sharks jumped off to a
seven point lead in the first
period, and added another
seven points to their margin in
the second. Apalachicola
bounded back in the last
stanza of the game, to put 25
points through the bucket, to
cut down the commanding
Shark lead.
John Pittman led the Shark
scoring with 24 points. Ricky
Larry added 23 and Castle-
dara Gant 13 for the Sharks.
Pittman, at 5'11" has been
carrying a big defensive load
for the Sharks this season and
had an outstanding record this
past week. Pittman grabbed
19 rebounds against Bay High
and 20 against the Wewa-
hitchka Gators to lead the

Mrs. Edith Stone Made

Education Contribution

A Delta Kappa Gamma
Feature ,
Mrs. Edith B. Stone, wife of
the late Nobie H. Stone, has
Made a great contribution to
public education by being a
master teacher of English
language arts for 37 years.
Having received a degree
from Georgia State College for
Women, Mrs. Stone taught in
Naples High School where her
future husband was elected
principal. After their marri-
age, she retired from teaching
to raise a family which in-
cluded one son, Nobie, Jr., and
twin daughters, Mabel and
Following her husband's
death in 1949, Mrs. Stone
resumed her teaching career.
She taught for twenty-eight
years in Naples High School
and nine years in Port St. Joe
High School.
During her rewarding car-
eer, Mr's. Stone was named
Outstanding Teacher of the
Year in 1967 by student selec-
tion, and had yearbooks dedi-
cated to her three times.
Although she is now retired,
Mrs. Stone continues to be
very active. In the Daugh-
ters of the American Revolu-
tion she is parliamentarian
and chairman of national de-
fense. She is a member of the
Port St. Joe Garden Club, the
St. Joseph Historical Society,
the Gulf County Retired
Teachers Association, and the
Delta Kappa Gamma Society
By being a member of the
administrative board, an as-
sistant teacher as well as
president of the Women's
Bible Class, a pianist on many
occasions, and a member of
the United Methodist Women,
Mrs. Stone is serving the First
United Methodist Church well.
Currently Mrs. Stone is a
member of the Beta Beta
Chapter of Delta Kappa -Gam-
ma. But she may hold some
kind of record because she has
been a member of six chap-
ters: Iota, Zeta, Alpha Delta,
Phi, Beta Kappa and Beta
She has served as president
of this organization for out-
standing women educators for
four years, and has held
sundry other offices as well as
chairing various committees.
Mrs. Stone says, "I guess
I'll always be a teacher even
though I am retired. To me
teaching was more than a
career; it was an opportunity
to help mold the lives of the
youth of our nation. I feel that
if I helped one child to be a
better person, my thirty-seven
years were not spent in vain."
Mrs. Stone has indeed help-
ed many children. She has
molded many lives touched by
her uncompromising stan-

dards of morality, her sin- strength of this nation. She is
cere desire to help young one who has helped to make it
people, and her belief in the strong.
