On La-Pacific's

New Chip Plant

Louisiana-Pacific, which announced three weeks ago
plans to build a wood products plant here in Port St. Joe, are
not wasting any time in getting their announced plans into an
operating reality.
Work is now well underway on construction of the plant
at the old Lions Club horse arena site on Highway 71, just
outside Port St. Joe.
The plant, which will initially furnish chips to St. Joe
Paper Company's paper mill here, will take long logs
coming into the city, and turn them into the chips, as well as
sort out some for lumber production. According to officials
involved in the operation, all long logs which are now going to
the paper mill directly, will be diverted to the new mill.
Louisiana-Pacific will also haul logs into the new plant for
grading, sorting and chipping.
Construction of the new plant is expected to be completed
by about June or July of this year, at which time it will go
immediately into production.

new mill is shown going up into place. In the photo above,

About six months ago, the
City Commission increased
the charges for cutting off and
restoring water service to
delinquent customers, to cut
down on the number of people
who are regularly delinquent
in paying their water bill. At
the same time, the City
initiated a new process in the
disruption of water service in
order to make the cut-off
threat more effective.
For a while this system
worked. The number of delin-
quent bills went down drasti-
cally. Now, the situation is
The City had been calling
delinquent customers, telling
them their water was about to
be shut off, but customers
were still going the full route,
forcing the City to shut off
their water for payment. This
resulted in people coming into
the City Hall just at closing
time to pay their delinquent
bills in order to have their
water cut back on. The turn on
fee was $5.00, but it cost the
City two hours of overtime to
go out late in the day to turn
the water back on.
Commissioner James B.
Roberts told the Board Tues-
day night, "The number of
delinquents has now increased
to the point where we are
spending at least three hours a
day on the phone about cut-off
time telling customers they

need to come pay their water
bills or their water will be cut
* In other words, it is now
costing the City more than it is
getting in cut-off and late fees
to cut the water back on.
"Sometimes it costs us more
than the fees and the water bill
brings in", Clerk Alden Farris
interjected into the conversa-
. To remedy the problem, the
Commission has decided not
to call people when their water
bills are late, but to automati-
cally cut them, off when the
cut-off time arrives. The wa-
ter will be cut back on for a
$5.00 fee, plus a $1.00 delin-
qent fee. But, if it is necessary
to cut the water back on after
5:00 p.m., the cut-on fee will
be $10.00 to pay for the
overtime charge.
For some time the City has
been trying to get a grant to
place radios in the City fire
trucks. For the past two years,
the City has failed to get the
grant, as the grant money
always runs out before Port
St. Joe's name comes up.
The City already has a base
station for the fire depart-
ment, which was received
through a federal program.
Tuesday night, the Commis-
sion decided to call for bids for
two mobile units to place in
the fire trucks, in order to

complete the communications
The base station will be
operated by the Police dis-
patchers from the Police
The two radios are expected
to.cost about $2,900.00.
The Commission discussed
the extension of the City Limit
lines Tuesday night, but no
initial step has been taken as
The Commission is aware of
a need to extend the limits, but
was undecided as to what

* Thieves


Thieves broke into Camp-
bell's Drug Store early Mon-
day# morning, but apparently
were scared off before they
could take what they were
looking for.
According to Police Chief
Roy Robinson, the thieves
broke into the back door of the
Reid Avenue drug store, but
took only one bottle of pills for
their trouble.
Robinson said patrolman
Gary White was making his
rounds early Monday morning
and thought he saw a move-
ment in the alley back of the
store. He went down the alley
to investigate and found the
back door of the drug store
According to Carl Guilford,
owner of the store, only one
bottle of pills was taken.
Guilford said, "They were
persistent. Some time recent-
ly they tried to break into the
store by chopping a hole in the
roof. We didn't even know it
until the last rain we had,
when the water started to pour
into the store. We investigated
the roof and found the hole
chopped in it."
The thieves didn't get all the
way into the store that time.

Gulf County system's state
capital outlay funds over the
next 20 years, according to
decisions made at the School
Board meeting Tuesday.
The new auto mechanics
building is rapidly nearing
completion at the High School
vocational site, but work on
new rooms for the Elementary
School classes will be a
gradual process over the next
few years, according to the
Board's plans.
For the past several years,
the Board has been committed
to abandoning the old school
site in Wewahitchka on High-
way 71, which is now being
utilized as the elementary
school. Growth at the school
has necessitated, the addition
of several temporary class-
rooms at the site to accommo-
date the student population.
This particular school is grow-
ing faster than any other
school in the county.
Plans of the Board are to
expand and develop the pres-
ent Linton School site for an
elementary complex. Present-
ly, the Linton School houses
only Kindergarten and first
grade classes. Initially, the
Board is making plans to
expand the school site to
handle K-3 classes.
Tuesday, the Board viewed
plans for 12 new classrooms to
be built on a piece-meal basis
at the Linton site as money
becomes available through
the state capital outlay plan.
Other plans are to encumber
80 percent of the capital outlay
fund for the next 20 years, to
finance the construction.
"Right now, we are making

plans to move the two elemen-
tary grades to the Linton site,
with our ultimate goal of
moving the entire elementary
operation to the site", Super-
intendent Walter Wilder said.

There will be no construc-
tion on the project for a while,
yet. First, the proposed plans

must be submitted to the State
Department of Education for
their final approval. "We just
have preliminary plans at this
time", Wilder stressed.
Wilder said that if every-
thing works as it should,
construction on the new class-
rooms should be under way
within six months.

Truck Stops Traffic
This log truck had more than its body could bear Monday
morning, as it was approaching Port St. Joe with a load of
pulpwood. The truck, owned by Argel Green of Kinard was
coming up on the approach to the draw bridge over the

Intracoastal Waterway at White City when the trailer on
which the logs were loaded, broke in the middle. The accident
halted traffic for some time, while the truck could be
repaired and moved out of the way. In the photo above,
workmen are shown jacking up the trailer into position so it
can be welded and reinforced back into position, so it can be
moved. -Star photo

Port St. Joe's Sharks won three straight games
against some tough opposition over the week end to win
. - the Gulf Coast Conference basketball crown. In
winning the crown, the Sharks defeated Havana,
Chattahoochee and Wakulla. Both Wakulla and
Chattahoochee had defeated the Sharks once each
during the regular season of play.
The small but fast Sharks had put on their biggest
scoring spree of the year Thursday night, to rout the
Havana Gladiators, 92-62. Friday night, they edged out
Chattahoochee, 68-66 and took the Championship
against Wakulla Saturday night, 53-40.
The three wins ran the Shark's season record to 16
wins against five losses. Other than the Chattahoochee
and Wakulla, the losses all came at the hands of larger
.,- .schools.

Thanks Canada, We Needed Your Assistance

... Thanks Canada, we needed that!
We needed to know that in these uncertain
times that we did not stand completely alone
in a desire to oppose those forces which inhibit
the freedom of men.
:- Our good neighbors to the north proved
- what good neighbors they were last week by
risking themselves to smuggle six of our
American diplomats out of Iran, in broad open
daylight, under the very noses of the Iranians.
The Iranians, of course, were very
indignant and labeled the Canadians as world
criminals for daring to perform such a
"criminal" act.
A classic example of the old Bible
admonition of seeing the splinter in the other
[: person's eye while not being able to see the
Sbeam in their own eye. Holding American

^xa surprise to have another nation pull our
chestnuts out of the fire for us, with no urging
our part.
- That's one of the better aspects of the

Canadians' act: they did what they did at no
urging on our part. As a matter of fact, their
good deed was a complete surprise even to
One of the things which probably made it
such a surprise to the Iranians made it a
surprise to us, also. Who would ever dream
that a nation would risk its reputation with
other nations by speaking up for or committing
an act in favor of the United States? Even our

so-called friends usually use us for what they
can get out of us.
There was considerable risk in what the
Canadians did. They kept the Americans
hidden away in the homes of their diplomatic
community for nearly three months before
they were able to spirit them out of Iran* Even
then, they had to close down their embassy
and move all their people out in order to
accomplish the escape of the Americans. If

they had been caught by the Iranians, there is
no doubt but what the American hostages
would be joined by Canadian hostages, or even
In our opinion, our entire nation owes
Canada for this one. If we can ever do them a
favor, we should do it, immediately.
When a nation has a few friends like the
Canadians have proven to be, he can stand a
few enemies like Iran with no problem.

Men of Every Generation Have Had to Fight

After an initial approval of the President's
tough stance following his address to the
nation two weeks ago, many of the youth who
would be affected by a call to the draft
registration have now come out opposed to
such a move.
This saddens us that any sizeable segment
of our youth would not be willing to do what
they could for their country. We can
understand their not wanting to answer a call
to conscription when the nation's future is not

in danger, but when we face what we face now,
it should be the privilege of every man to do
his part to preserve our way of human rights
for all men.
We can't but wonder, with this reluctance
to offer their service, what would have
happened in the past history of this country if
the young men of other generations had said,
in effect, "Hell no, we won't go"?
Americans of nearly every generation
have been faced with the task of fighting for

our country. They have met the call on every
occasion. We like to think the attitude of
rebellion for service in the Vietnamese war
was because of our announced goal of not
trying to defeat the enemy. Apparently it was
Our nation is worth defending. It is the
best on the face of the earth, in spite of its
shortcomings. We hope that as time goes by,
our youth will realize this and change their

ties and articles are entitled to
their freedom. However, what
I am pointing out is that while
this City of which you are a
City Commissioner has such
an ordinance, you fail to
enforce, yet, try to place on
me and my neighbors. Could
this be because you don't want

Wallace F. Tillery

(Ed note-If we had our
way, the city would be cleaner
than it is now. Since we have
been on the Board, this
particular ordinance has been
enforced on at least four
occasions. But, to pursue your
example; since the city's
ordinance is more stringent
than the one planned for the
county, and it has been
violated to the point of invoca-
tion on only four occasions, it
makes us believe someone has
misrepresented the power of
the county's proposed ordin-
ance. Also, your neighbor and
mine pay taxes on their
property and deserve to have
their environs somewhat to
their liking, too.)

ICensus Takers Just Want to See How Many People Live In the Nation


I RECEIVED a sample copy of the
n3ew census report all of us are expected
to fill out for the government and return
by mail on April 1.
? Glancing over the form, I was
!gratified to learn the government is
saving money. They didn't go out and
hire a technician to write up the report.
:ou can tell, when you get yours, they
'-sed the same guy who authors the
income tax reports.
. If you have more than seven people
jiving in your house, you will be in
trouble. The report has space to report
only seven people in one household.
.There are no provisions or instructions
Jor those who have more than seven in
the household. So there is one problem,
aright there.
Unlike most government docu-
mnents, there is no place on the form
where it says, "Do not fold, spindle or
.staple this form". So, if you want to fold
-it, fold away. If you want to spindle it on
Sour file, spindle your heart out. If you
want to staple it shut and don't have a
staple gun, I'll sell you one.


trouble with the report. There are only
six letter-size pages to read and fill out.
Every page has from one to five
questions to answer about each person
in your household, plus several pages of

questions about the abode where you
hang your hat. (It doesn't ask if you
have a place to hang your hat. I don't
know how that one slipped by.)
The form wants to know the age,
name, birthday, marital status and
education of everyone in your house-
hold. They also want to know the sex
and race, questions which employers
are not allowed to ask. Before this thing

is over, we just may have a class action
suit or two about these questions.

WHEN THE REPORT gets down to
questioning you about your living

quarters, it gets downright personal.
For instance, the questionnaire
asks if you have a bathroom and is that
bathroom connected to public sewer,
septic tank or cesspool or other means
of disposal. I guess if you have a
bathroom and use other means of
disposal, that must mean an old
fashioned slop jar.
The form asks if you get your water

from a public system, drilled or dug
well or some other source such as a
spring, creek, river, cistern, etc. I
thought for a minute there last week
end, we were going to be able to check

that etc., since it looked as if we might
be getting our water from melted snow
or ice if the weather had kept up. I've
done that, way back yonder, but the
census people didn't want to know it
Our more affluent people will be in
trouble also on the census form. When
asking the number of rooms in their
house, there are check places for only
nine. When asking about the number of

bedrooms, the form allows for only five.
They've narrowed the thing down
pretty much.

know such things as: Do you have a
complete kitchen in your living quar-
ters; do you have a telephone; do you
have air- conditioning; how many
automobiles are kept at home for use by
members of your household?
I'll have to answer "none" to this
last question. None of our automobiles
are kept at home for use by members of
the household. They are all on the road.
The census takers want to know
what you use to cook with, heat water,
heat your home and how much you pay
for it.
They also want to know how much
you think your home is worth and how
much you pay in taxes and insurance.
To all of these questions, I'm going
to answer, "too much!"
The most stupid question on the
report is, Do you have a mortgage, deed
of trust, contract to purchase, or
similar debt on this property?
The obvious answer is, "Who

THE BACK TWO pages get per-
sonal, if you think it hasn't in the
proceeding pages.
You will find such questions as,
What state or foreign country was this
person born and did he come here to
stay? How well does this person speak
English? (with sub-titles in Spanish);
Where was this person five years ago?
Does this person have a physical,
mental, or other health condition which
has lasted for 6 or more months? Has
this person been married more than
once? Did this person work at any time
last week? How many hours? How long
did it usually take this person to get
from home to work? Did this person
drive, share a ride, etc., in getting to
and from work? Has this person been
looking for work during the last four
And, of course, the report wants to
know how much money you made,
interest dividends, royalties or rental.
income you received.
So now you see just how pertinent
the census form is. Be sure to fill yours
out correctly, since the government
sorely needs all this information to see
how many people live in the nation.

Fourteen Congressional
seats could change hands
among the states after the 1980
census, with the South and
West gaining all of them, ac-
cording to new population
estimates by the Census Bureau
of the U.S. Department of
The Census Bureau at-
tempts to continually keep up
with state population changes
through illustrative projec-
tions, or estimates, on an an-
nual basis. The latest projec-
tions now show that the West
would gain eight of the seats
and the South six seats in the
1982 reapportionment. Since
the House of Representatives
would retain a constant
number of 435 members, the
losses would be in the North-
east and North Central states.
The law requires that new ap-
portionment totals must be
provided to the President by
January 1, 1981.
Early predictions indicate
that the State of Florida will
gain three seats while Califor-
nia and Texas,. will gain .two
9 each. Arizona, Colorado, New
Mexico, Oregon, Tennessee,
Utah, and Washington will
gain one additional seat each.
On the other side of the coin,
however, New York will lose
four seats. Illinois, Ohio, and
Pennsylvania will lose two
each, and Massachusetts,
Michigan, New Jersey, and
South Dakota one each.
Minor population changes
can often make a big difference
in the reapportionment. In
fact, just two years ago,
population trends indicated
that the maximum number of
changes would be eleven seats.
In the redistricting process, the
projections for district popula-
tion will rise from approx-
imately 450,000 per district to
506,000 per district.
Needless to say, the addi-
tional seats for the "sunbelt"
will provide more votes on
critical issues and hopefully
more clout on these issues.

takers when they work in your

rescue of victims who have had
their airway obstructed by at-
tempting to swallow too large a
piece of food can be learned in
a matter of moments. She fur-
ther noted that many public
services offer instruction, in-
cluding the American Heart
Association, the Red Cross,
some fire stations, and some
hospitals. If any fee is charged
by the teaching organization, it
would only be used to cover
the cost of printed materials
for training.
I am sure that many of you
participate in civic organiza-
tions or church groups which
would provide an excellent
forum for just such a training
session. You may just save a
life one day.

Get Your Pruning Shears

Ready, It's That Time of Year

by':Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Agent
Late winter and early spring
is -the time to prune many
shi-ubs and small trees in the
yard. Shrubs that bloom in
summer and fall generally
develop flowers on current
seasons growth and should be
pruned before the first flush of
growth in the spring. Shrubs
tEat bloom in the spring or
winterr should be pruned im-
miediately after flowering has
finished. Pruning is practiced
to maintain plant health,
cAntrol plant growth, and
encourage flowering and fruit-
ing. These objectives should
b* remembered as you prune.
:Pruning should encourage
pOant health, not plant disease.
Therefore, it is important to
prune properly using the
correct pruning tools. For
general cleanup hand pruning

kPainting the wounds with
tpee wound dressing has lately
Come a controversial prac-
&fie. The standard recom-
enAdation has been to paint
aQj.wounds over one inch in
d(fieter with a quality tree
iound dressing to protect the
q�ut surface from woodrotting
organisms and checking (rad-
ial-cracking) upon drying.
Some research has shown that
upon exposure to the sun, the
protective coating often
cracks, and moisture enters
the cracks and accumulates in
*. , *

pockets that may occur be-
tween the wood and the wound
covering. This situation would
be even more inviting to


wood-rotting organisms than
one with 'no wound cover.
However, in situations where
aesthetics are important, the

practice is justified. If a
pruning wound is to be protec-
ted, allow it to dry before
applying the dressing. This
will improve chances of good
*bonding. Examine the coating
several times the first year.
Repeat if the coating has
Clipped hedges require a
specialized type of pruning
and may become a continuous
job during the growing season.
There are two important
factors to remember about
clipped hedges. The hedge
should be clipped while the
new growth is green and
succulent. Also, the plant
should be trimmed so that the
base of the hedge is wider than
the top so that light can reach
the lower leaves.
Unless a shrub is topiory,
espolier, or part of a formal
hedge it should not be closely
clipped but allowed to develop
into a naturolistic form. This
does not mean that the plant
should be left alone, but that
pruning is done to enhance the
natural beauty of the plant.
The first step in pruning is to
remove all dead, diseased, or
injured branches. Once this is
done it may be necessary to
thin out the plant. Remove
branches that cross each other
or they will obviously become
entangled. If the shrub still
looks too thick remove some of
the older branches. Remove
any branches that are distinct-
ly different from the rest of
the shrub. Cut back excessive-
ly long growth to a bud that is
four to six inches below the
average branch length. If you
wish to reduce the size of the
shrub cut back each branch
four to six inches, to a new

jogging enthusiasts. This past
Saturday, Port St. Joe was

How to Raise

A Garden

Roy Carter, Gulf County Ex-
tension Director, visited Mrs.
Susie Cooper's second period
Home Economics class at
Port St. Joe High School. Mr.
Carter talked with us about
things to do to raise a good
On his first visit we went to
our garden spot and took soil
samples to have tested. The
soil needed to be tested so we
could know if we had sweet or
sour soil. Our soil was sent to
Gainesville and tested. The
report showed us about our
soil and the kind of fertilizer
we needed.
Last week, Mr. Carter show-
ed us a film, in which we
learned about putting insecti-
cide into the garden to keep
pests from stopping the
growth of our plants. The film
showed how to use a roto-tiller
to plow and aerate the soil. We
were shown how to plant seeds
so vegetables could get
enough sunlight and grow
good. The students will water
regularly in order to have a
good garden, and we hope it
will give us plenty of fresh
vegetables for our use.

in the Municipal Hospital nursery. The
machine was purchased through donations
from citizens and organizations in Port St.
Joe, in a program to up-grade the infant care
facilities at the hospital.
' This unit is equipped with a phototherapy
light, which helps prevent the need for
transfusions for jaundiced babies and has
built-in facilities to provide intra-veinous
feeding for the infant, its own oxygen supply
as well as heart and respiratory monitoring
"The biggest use to us will be using the
machine to gently accustom the new-born
baby from. the warm temperatures in its
mother to room temperature", Dr. Simpson.

the Fall semester along with
74 other students of Gulf Coast
Community College.
The highest'. possible aca-
demic achievement at Gulf

represented by the Presi-

recognition a student had to
carry a course load of at least

pediatrics at the hospital said the machine
will be used on every new-born baby to reduce

proper facilities for those babies which need
extra care at birth.
The group of citizens which raised the
money for this machine are now in the
process of raising funds to purchase a fetal

will equip Municipal's delivery suite as well
as any hospital facility in the Panhandle
with the exception of the neo-natal units in

Jesus died to provide King-
dom living for us. We still,
after accepting Jesus as Sav-
iour, continue to live in the
same old pit as before.
ING! We are the righteous-
ness of God (2 Corinthians
5:21). Also, 2 Corinthians 5:17

says when we are born again
we become a "new creation".
"The old has gone, the new
has come!" Praise God, this
means that my sins are not
just whitewashed, they are
GONE! God says so "the old
has gone."
One problem we have is that
too many of us THINK we
know what God's Word says,
but we do not take time to
READ God's Word to KNOW
what it says. If you are having
trouble PRAY to God and His
Holy Spirit will teach you waht
the Word says. It really is time
we get our lives in line with
God's Word.

Port St. Joe's Sharks used
their superior speed and ball-
stealing abilities to capture
the Gulf Coast Conference

16-12 lead in the first period,
but the War Eagles slowed the
game down in the second
period, with only eight points
being scored by both teams.
But the tactic didn't work for
In the second half, the
Sharks came out stealing and
running. Gant started the
period off with a steal and a
pass off to Larry, who built the
Shark lead with a basket. A
tough defense by Larry, Pitt-
man, Kenny Parker and Kevin
Cherry all through the third
period kept the War Eagles off
balance. With 30 seconds left
in the third period, Pittman
rolled in with a field goal to
build the Shark lead to seven
points. With only nine seconds
left in the period, he scored
again, pushing the Shark
margin to nine points. As the
period buzzer sounded, the
Eagles' Barwich hit a 40-
footer to cut the Sharks lead
back to seven.
The Sharks waited until the
last two minutes of the game
to pull farther away from the
Eagles, who had been staying
within seven points of the
eventual winners all through
the last stanza.
With a little over two
minutes left, Larry hit on a
driving lay-up to boost the
Sharks to an 11 point lead.
Gant followed with two free
throws with 29 seconds left
and then hit on a field goal
withb nine seconds left to give
the Sharks their final 13 point
