Core Says He Will Retire

Veteran Clerk of the Circuit Court,
George Y. Core, informs The Star that
he will not seek re-election to that
office. In Checking our records, we find
that Core was elected to the Clerk's
office in the elections of 1948. He
succeeded Joe R. Hunter, who was
appointed to the office when Gulf
County was created by the Legislature,
June, 1925, and held this important
position until he retired on November
15, 1948.
Core having been elected in the
General Election, Governor Millard F.
Caldwell appointed him to fill Hunter's
remaining term. The present term ends
January 5, 1981, at midnight, giving
him just over 32 years in office. He has
been re-elected without opposition since
We asked Core to tell The Star
something about his 31 years in office.
He said, "Part of my job was working
very closely with the Board of County
Commissioners as an ex-officio mem-
ber, the board's Secretary, Treasurer
and Auditor. In these 31 years I have
worked with 32 County commissioners
and have always enjoyed the very best
relationship with each of them.
"The first few years in office we
recorded all Public Records by typing
and kept all financial records by pen
and ink. In the 1950's we began
recording by photograph and keeping
our financial records with a bookkeep-

'n- -g
ing machine. Today we have a small
computer that takes care of all finan-
cial records and our inventory records.
We record all Public Records on micro-
film, using a hard copy produced from

the microfilm for the public to use and
keeping the film as a security measure.
Our first handwritten index was almost
as hard to figure out as a crossword
"Today our permanent index is
computerized and the most modern in
Florida, as easy to use as finding a
name in the telephone directory."
In discussing the growth of the
county in Core's tenure in office, he said
county government has been a slow but
steady growth. The three county.
operating funds in his first year were a
total of $89,334.00. Last year the clerk's
office earned $83,727.00 from interest.
This is a result of good financial
planning using all surplus funds to
purchase 30-day interest bearing notes.
This equals to more than one mill taxes.
We asked George about some of the
high points in this tenure of service.
After thinking for a moment, he said he
could think of several honors during
these past 31 years, such as being
invited to the White House by three
different Presidents; serving as Pre-
sident of the National Association of
County Clerks and Records; the great-
est and most treasured honor of all is
the honor given him by the citizens of
Gulf county in allowing him to be
re-elected in -seven elections without
ever having any opposition. "I am
prayerfully grateful to them," said

'Junk' Ordinance On Hold

Committee Suggests No Further Consideration

The third round in the
embattled "Junk Yard" or-
dinance was played Tuesday
morning, with a committee,
headed by Commissioner Leo
Kennedy, reporting.
The committee, which had
been charged by Board Chair-
man Doug Birmingham with
making suggestions for an,
ordinance to control unhealthy
and unsightly conditions in the
county. Their recommenda-
tion, after meetings, was to
junk the "Junk Yard" ordin-
ance idea at this time.
Commissioner Leo Ken-
nedy, giving the report for his
committee, said they had
reached the opinion there
were enough laws already on
the books to take care of any
situation covered under the
disputed ordinance and his
committee felt such a law was
impractical to administer and
enforce and was not really
wanted by the majority of the

Scott Hunter to
Speak Friday
Scott Hunter, former quar-
terback for the University of
Alabama, and now with the
Detroit Lions of the National
Football League, will be
speaking at the Port St. Joe
Jr.-Sr. High School this Fri-
day, Feb. 22nd, at 10:00 a.m.
The public is cordially in-
vited to hear this outstand-
Sing Christian athlete.

The committee recommen-
ded the Commission termi-
nate any further consideration
on this matter.
After making the recom-
mendation to drop the matter,
Kennedy then, in effect, kept
the matter alive by asking
that the committee be allowed
to meet with ai attorney to
examine the ordinance and its
proposals to see which parts
were already covered in state
statutes. "We would like to see
which parts of the document
should be abandoned and
which parts need to have their
legality questioned", he said.
George Whiting, a member
of the committee then asked
the Board if they could use
another attorney, other than
the Board's attorney, William
J. Rish. "We realize he is your
attorney hired to look after
your interests and may have a
conflict of interest in this
Whiting and committee
*member Wallace Tillery both
made it clear they did not wish
to see the county continue with
conditions of filth or unsightly
conditions, but felt state laws
covered most situations which
currently existed.
"We want to have our
county clean. We are not a
bunch of slobs as The Star said
we were", Tillery said.
Tillery went on to say he felt
many of the state laws on the
books governing unhealthy
conditions were not being

enforced as they should.
Ann Wood, another member
of the committee expressed
the thought that the county
needs some sort of building
code. "There are arestreets in
Highland View where houses
have burned and left standing
for months at a time. The
owners just won't clean them
Whiting then stated it was
part of the responsibility of the
building inspector to have
these buildings condemned
and cleaned up. "He has the
power to do that under the
Southern Building Code",
Whiting said.
Chairman Birmingham ad-
vised the committee the coun-
ty would not pay for another
attorney to meet with their
group but said the county
attorney was available to
them if they wished to pursue
the matter any further. "But
for now", he said, "we will let
the matter lie."
In other items of business,
the Commission:
-Agreed to place questions
on the fall ballot for residents
of Howard Creek and Over-
street to vote themselves a tax
collecting fire control district.
-Agreed to exchange
pieces of property at Beacon.
Hill with Charles Cleckley.
The decision was made after a
public hearing in which the
Board declared both pieces of
property would be increased
in value by the swap.
-Gave the Apalachee Plan-

ning Council authority to
submit a plan of improve-
ments to the County Sheriff's
communications equipment

Agency in order to be eligible
for a grant of .$20,000 to do the

County Calls Halt to

Valuation Changes

The County Commission
caliod a halt to reductions in
property valuations which
have been placed on the tax
rolls Tuesday morning.
Complaining that they have
been receiving "a handful" of
changes (mostly reductions)
at each meeting in property
valuations, the Board decided
to revert to the letter of the
law and refuse to re-adjust
land and property values until
the proper time each year.
Commissioner Jimmy Gort-
man, reacting to a bundle of 13
reductions from the Property
Appraisers' office, identified
as errors and insolvencies,
said, "We have already
adopted the procedure as set
out by the law and refused to
make any changes after the
legal deadline has passed.
"We can't continue to reduce
these values at every meet-
ing", Gortman said.
State law requires that any
dispute with property values
be taken up with the Property
Appraiser before March 30 for
relief in the following taxing
Mrs. Joyce Williams, assis-
tant to the Appraiser, Samuel
A. Patrick, told the Commis-
sion, "Many of these are
errors in addition or posting

and deserve reduction". She
said there were many errors
on this year's property rolls
due to confusion caused by
delay in acceptance of the
rolls by the State Revenue
Department, errors made in
computer posting and lack of
time to check the entries

thoroughly before the tax bills
had to go out.
The Board had gone on
record as refusing to accept
any more changes for what-
ever reason. After Mrs. Wil-
liams told her story, they
rescinded their ruling some-
what, limiting any future

changes to errors in mathe-
matics. "If there is an error in
addition, we'll change the
entry, but otherwise we
won't", chairman Doug Bir-
mingham said. Birmingham
had earlier been the only one
to vote against making any
changes at all in the rolls.

Agree to Permit Terms

State Representative Leonard Hall told The Star late
Tuesday afternoon that a meeting in Tallahassee Tuesday
between the Department of Environmental Regulation
and the United States Corps of Engineers had tentatively
resolved problems with granting a dredging permit for
maintenance dredging of the entrance to the harbor here
in St. Joseph Bay.
According to Representative Hall, a meeting between
representatives of the two agencies had reached a
working agreement acceptable to both for granting of the
dredge permit.
Approval of the permit has been held in limbo since
November of 1978, with the DER and the Corps at odds
over where to place dredge spoil and the manner of
dredging. In the meantime, the entrance channel to the
bay, where it passes near St. Joseph's Point has silted in
to where the channel is nearly half closed to shipping. The
silting has resulted in tankers coming into the bay only
during daylight hours, in calm seas and with partial loads.
According to local Harbor Pilot, Dave Maddox, "Even
these precautions made shipping into the bay dangerous
and risky."

Representative Hall said the tentative agreement will
be put down in writing for signing by both agencies in a
"short time". Hall said the agreement could be signed as
soon as two weeks from now, "but don't hold me to that
time-table", Hall said.
The Corps and DER had been at odds over where to
place the spoil originally, but this objection was removed
in late summer of last year, when DER agreed to allow
the Corps to place the spoil just inside the point in what is
known locally as "Shark Hole". The DER put stipulations
on allowable turbidity which the Corps said they could not
live with. The Corps had maintained all along the spot
finally agreed upon was the best spot to place the spoil to
keep it from washing back into the channel, thus causing a
need for more dredging in just a very short time. The
Corps maintained placing the spoil in the finally agreed
upon spot would make the dredging effective for a long
period of time, extending the time when the bay would
have to be stirred up again with dredging in the future.
The dredging permit has been a matter or pursuit by
virtually every government agency in the County for the
past year and a half.

Sylvachem Marks Year Without Accident

Sylvachem's Port St. Joe plant received a
safety award 'his past week, presented by the
firm's home office, for one year without a lost time
The local plant has completed 264,000,536 man
hours of work without a single lost time accident.
Only six minor accidents serious enough to involve
a doctor were experienced by the plant last yeat.
The plant employees 139 people.

Waylon Graham, safety director of the local
plant said, "Our plant was at the top of the safety
list with SCM Corporation, but had plunged to the
bottom. Now we're right back up at the top."
Graham said the local safety committee is
responsible for the fine record. The safety
committee is composed of union and supervisory
personnel who meet and discuss safety problems as
they arise.

Graham noted that the cooperation between the
workers and the company was instrumental in the
change of safety status.

Turning Heads, Closing Eyes

This editor received a letter to the editor
last week, which belatedly opened a train of
thought with us we think needs discussing and
-paying some attention to.
The writer of the letter made the
statement that necks were for turning our
head when there is something we don't wish to
- face and our eyelids are to close out sights we
don't wish to look at.
In other words, if something happens we
don't personally want to acknowledge or meet
face to face, then we should just turn away our
head or close our eyes and shut the
objectionable thing from our view and
: perception.
The more we thought about his advice, the
more we were convicted that the primary
thing wrong with our world or with its people
Today is that they either turn their heads away
or close their eyes to things they don't wish to
acknowledge or deal with and pretend it
doesn't exist.
We are a world of ostriches.
In the '30's the Germans and the
remainder of the world turned their heads
. away and closed their eyes to what Adolph
Hitler was doing in Germany, saying it was
none of their affair. Before it was all over,
Hitler became the very personal affair of the
entire world.
For years, Democrats and Republicans

alike have spied on each other, trying to ferret
out the secret strategies of each other's party
and circumvent the strategy with dirty tricks.
We turned our heads and shut our eyes to the
practice, saying it was just two political
parties, acting like a bunch of kids, trying to
put something over on each other. They were
hurting nobody but themselves. They weren't
that is, until someone decided not to turn his
head or close his eyes and their shenanigans
resulted in the first time ever for a President
of the United States of America to have to.
resign from office.
We have turned our heads and closed our

eyes to our problems with a petroleum supply
for the United States. We didn't explore our
own resources because it was cheaper and
everyone made more money to purchase
foreign supplies. Now, we are at the point
where we must use the foreign supply if we
keep the wheels rolling, because turning our
heads and closing our eyes to the future has
put our future in jeopardy simply because we
can't ,take care of our own needs in these
We have continually turned our heads and
closed our eyes to the type local (County and
.ity) officials we were getting, preferring to

elect a "good old boy" rather than face the
prospect of selecting someone who would do
what was right with our responsibilities and
someone who would handle our tax money in a
reasonable and responsible manner. We have
closed our eyes to the need for good business
administrators and pinned the tail on the
donkey, so to speak, saying, "you're it", for
the next two or four years.
We think it is time we keep our faces
turned toward what is going on and our eyes
open to what we are doing or doing to our
nation, our county, our city and especially our

FBI Was Just A Little too Hasty In Bribe Case

Walter Cronkite said the other night that
the FBI has erred in its handling of the recent
revelation of public officials supposedly
taking bribes.
Cronkite said the FBI was definitely off
base by taking their accusations to the public
via press releases, rather than to a Grand
Jury for an indictment and a presentation of
the charges to the accused. In the case last
week, the accused read of their accusations in
the paper, rather than having them presented

in a matter where they could defend
In other words, Cronkite pointed out that
the FBI has taken a forum in regards to the
so-called bribery charges which will convict
those allegedly involved in the eyes of the
public before they are ever indicted or taken
to court.
Cronkite says the FBI has gone against
the basic rights guaranteed the accused in our
nation by their actions of going public with

their case, rather than to the courts.
We don't know if Cronkite is correct or
not. We suspect he is. Regardless of whether
legal steps were taken or not, we'd hate to
think we should, ever face reading of some
misdeed we were charged with in the
newspaper or see it on TV before we were
ever approached personally with the charges.
We don't know about it's being legal or
illegal, it certainly wasn't proper where good
manners and fair play are involved.

Gulf County, clarified the new
Medicare deductibles and the
services available under Med-
icare. One service, however,
was omitted from those avail-

Our World Is Full ofProblems... All We Lack Is Solutions

Wakulla County News was editorializ-
ing, very convincingly, last week in his
paper that he didn't think the Russians
wer in Afghanistan for the purpose of
using it as a springboard to the
Mid-East oil fields. Phillips went on to
give several good reasons why he felt
.this way.
- His main purpose of the editorial
seemed to be that he thought the U. S.
attitude at this time that war was
inevitable was all wrong. Phillips didn't
feel the problems in the Mid-East
should be used to fan such an attitude in
Sour country, though he welcomed the
parallel change toward patriotism
:which it was engendering.
.-. Phillips also seemed to oppose a
*'move to boycott the Olympics in
Moscow as a means of venting our
pique on another nation.
All of this is to let you in on Phillips'
closing statement, which I thought was
very good. I'm paraprhazing, since I
don't have his paper to quote word for
word at this time, but he said in effect:
he wonders what will happen in years to
come if some foreign planet visits this

planet and their explorers happen to dig
up some of our old documents and sees
where two nations or the world went to
war simply because one side wouldn't
come play with the other.


THERE'S A FREE number you
can call now if you think you have been
mis-treated or your case mis-handled
by a professional.

It took almost a search like Stanley
looking for Livingston trying to find out
where to lodge a complaint in the past if
you figured a lawyer, a doctor, a
dentist, a barber, engineer, or other

professional had taken you for a ride.
Now, it's as simple as picking up
your telephone and dialing 1-800-342-
7940, free of charge. You can lodge your
complaint with the right people without

it costing you a cent.
That doesn't mean your complaint
will be handled to your satisfaction. It
only means you have lodged it in the
right place.

I LIKE THE Republicans' TV
advertisement which shows the Senator
going down the road, oblivious to the

repeated warnings of his passenger
that he is running out of gas.
To be fair, the problem doesn't lie
only in the laps of the Senate, nor does it
lie in the laps of just the Democrats. It

lies with all of Congress, as I see it.
Ultimately it lies with us as
individual citizens of this United States.
We elect our Senators and Congress-
men mainly for the sole purpose of
scratching our back when it itches, and
consequently, they spend the bulk of
their time doing just that. If it takes
running out of petroleum in the future
to keep us happy at the moment, well

let someone else worry about that. If it
takes spending our nation bankrupt to
sooth our demands for more, quicker,
then let the people of the future worry
about paying it back.
See editorial above.
I personally believe that had the
future been considered 10 to 20 years
ago, there would be no shortage of
domestically produced petroleum to-
day. The price may be as high as it is
today, having gradually risen over a
period of years. We would have an
adequate supply to operate with, we
feel, if things had been handled
time, and it appears as if he will
straighten out our kink with Iran.
Last week he called the so-called
rebels holding the Americans hostage
in the embassy in Tehran, criminals.
This looks to us like the fore-runner of
action by Sadr toward demanding that
they release the Americans. Never
mind the fact that Sadr could say the
word if he wanted and the Americans
would be released in the next five

minutes and the rebels jailed. His
moves seem to be designed to let the*
rebels and his government both save
face, by showing the government
If old Sadr is successful, let's give
him a silver star (he doesn't quite
deserve a gold one) and accept him,
conditionally, back into the fold, all the
while watching his left hand while we
deal with his right.
BY THE WAY, how do you spell
Tehran? Newsweek magazine spells it
"Teheran" while the daily newspapers
in our area spell it "Tehran".
AND ON THE local scene, we are
finally having our winter.
Immediately after "Groundhog
Day", winter struck us and we have
had cold to chilly weather ever since.
The groundhog saw his shadow we
are informed, which means six more
weeks of winter for the nation.
In our case, it meant the beginning
of winter. One would think the
groundhog lived, in Wewa and not
Punxatawney, Pa.

Hospital Begins

Strong Effort to

Collect Past Bills

THE STAR. Port St. Joe, Fla. THURSDAY, FEB. 14, 1980

The Board of Trustees of the
Municipal Hospital has di-
rected that an aggressive
effort be made to collect
outstanding debts owed the
institution. Uncollectable ac-

counts last year represented
17 percent of gross revenues.
That translated into an addi-
tional cost of approximately
$120 per patient last year.
Chairman Frank Pate stated

Builds Muscle & Saves Gas

Henry Bouie, of Apalachicola, has found a way to beat
the gasoline shortage and its high-price. Bouie, who has
worked at Driesbach Cleaners here in Port St. Joe for many
years, rides his bicycle home to Apalachicola each
Wednesday. As warm weather gets here, Bouie said he would
make the trip both ways by bicycle on Wednesday. He makes
the trip in just a little under two hours on a calm day, and in
two and a half hours against the wind. He finds the trip
exhilirating as well as economical. He flies his little flag on
the rear of his bicycle so motorists can see him. "You have to
play it safe riding a bike on the highways", Bouie said, "and '
be especially alert at intersections."

Dedication Service

Dedication ceremonies com-
memorating the remodeling of
the New Bethel A.M.E.

The cornerstone will be laid
by Beach Island Masonic
Lodge No. 468, with Worship-
ful Master Charlie Kimble and
Deputy Grand Master C. L.

lodges will include: Lark Hart
of Wewahitchka; Herman

Me Lodge of Blountstown and
Labor System Lodge of Pan-
ama City. Sheba No. 13A

that continued leniency about
collections is unfair to the vast
majority of patients who pay
the bills either directly or
through insurance premiums.
Notices were sent out to
collect some $61,000 in uncol-
lected debts this past week,
giving the recipient 10 days to
respond in some manner
before the balance is turned
over to a collection agency for
Pate said the Board realized
that some of the outstanding
debts are owed by people who
cannot pay. However, he said,
a letter being mailed makes it
clear that relief is avail-
able to these people if they
would just let the hospital
know. It has always been the
philosophy of the hospital to
provide necessary medical
care to anyone regardless of
their ability to pay. He said,
however, that recent federal
regulations now make it nec-
essary for the hospital to
require some proof of the
patient's financial hardship.
At a minimum, documenta-
tion of the patient's income
and dependents must be given
the hospital. If this informa-
tion is provided and conforms
to government guidelines,
then either the entire bill or a
portion of it will be written off
as charitable services. If the
hospital is not told about these
problems it must assume the
patient is able to pay but just
Administrator Zyski said
letters are being sent to all old
accounts explaining in a
straight-forward manner the
process the hospital will follow
in either collecting the bill or
determining that it is a
charitable write-off. He sug-
gested the easiest way for
people who receive the letter
to act is to come by the
hospital business office with
either payment or a reasona-
able proposal as to how
payment will be made or with
proof of financial hardship.
Discussing a related prob-
lem, Zyski said the hospital is
requiring assignment of all
insurance policies and refus-
ing to assist in filing personal
insurance until the entire
hospital debt is satisfied. "It's
just not right for people to
expect the hospital to help
them collect insurance money
personally when there is still
money due on the hospital bill.
If all hospital debts are paid
then we will help them as best
we can, provided Medicare or
Medicaid did not pay any part
of the bill.
The Board stated that with
the tremendous costs of hospi-
tal operations today and with
the local hospital furnishing
emergency room doctor ser-
vices to its service area, the
hospital just cannot afford to
continue to carry large per-
centages of its business on the
books as unpaid bills.

Sharks Meet Goliath-Lose 83-62

E. L. Fleming, 269 Avenue B, is the latest
, turnip grower to bring evidence of his efforts

Congratulation to the girls'
basketball team for their
magnificent win over Mosley,
Wednesday, February sixth.
It was a close game all the
way through. Every time the
Sharks scored, the Dolphins
would answer with a score.
Less than one minute was left
in the game and the Sharks
were leading 51-49, but the
Dolphins had the ball. The
Dolphins tied the game up
with five seconds left, and it
looked like the game could go
:into overtime. But Sheila
Farmer took the ball to
half-court and with one second
left, shot approximately forty
five feet from the goal, she
..had scored, winning the game
53-51. Was it luck or was it
:skill? She will never tell.

The past few weeks selected
students have been in the
Presidential Classroom in
Washington D.C. Approxi-

students from all over the U.S.
were there. Students from St.
Joe who participated were:
Lulu McInnis, Paula Besore,
Tammy Butts, Leslie Costin,

Kathey Yates, Beth Pollock,
and Bart Wood. I talked with
these students to ask what
they did on their one week stay
there. They sat in on fifteen
different political seminars,
saw films of how undercover
CIA agents work, learned
about legislative committees
and congressional offices.
They had appointments to
meet with Florida's Senators:
Richard Stone and Lawton
Chiles. They visited the House
and Senate buildings while
they were in session.
Their recreational activities
included visits to the Smith-
sonian Instiution, tours of the
White House, and National
Archives. Grand sightseeing
tours of the Washington Monu-
ment, the Lincoln Memorial,
The Thomas Jefferson Memo-
rial, the Pentagon, the Water-

Tuesday night, when the

fast team to Tallahassee to
meet the Godby Cougars and

and bench strength which
made the difference despite a

The Sharks jumped off to an
early lead and hung close
during the first quarter, but
late in the second period the
Cougars' size began to tell and
at half-time, the Sharks were
down, 39-25.
The Sharks made a run for it
in the third period, pumping 24
points through the nets and
came within nine points of the
lead with five minutes left in
the game. But the Cougars
responded with several key
baskets and free throws to run
their margin of victory back

If you are thinking about re-
decorating your home, consi-
der the expense, and consider
the enormous advantage car-
pets and rugs can offer in this
situation. Why re-do your en-
tire home, when the addition
of carpet can change the look
of any room?
Carpets come in such a
variety of colors and designs
that they can change the tone,
even the very nature of a
room. A colorful pattern de-
sign can brighten a room, and
enhance its visual effect so
that the whole tone of the room
is lighter and freer. Soft
pastels can subdue a room,
make it a quieter and more
restful place.

In One
The seventh hole on the St.

golf course is neither the
shortest nor the easiest. It
measures 123 yards from the
ladies' tee to the green: Any
normal day finds tee shots
falling short, landing under

soaring too long, or coming to
rest on the green but at some

phenomenon of golf, a hole in

Death Rate

Going Up
The traffic fatality total for
1979 is slowly approaching the
1973 all time high of 2,662 said
the Florida Highway Patrol
Preliminary totals for 1979
show that 2,603 people died in
Florida traffic crashes. De-
layed reports are still being
counted as people die from
injuries received prior to the
end of the year.
Patrol Director Colonel El-
drige Beach said, "We are
hoping that the total figure
stays below the 1973 number
because that is one record our
state can do without."
"Of course, there are many
more people driving, riding
and walking on our highways
and streets, therefore, more
people are dying each year in
traffic crashes.
Beach concluded by saying,
"Until the people using our
streets and highways take it
upon themselves to obey the
traffic laws, which are for
their safety, we will continue
to fill up our cemeteries with
careless drivers, pedestrians,
and bicyclists."

The Budget Dollar

The FY81 budget has ar-
rived for Congressional review!
This year, for the 1981 fiscal
year, the President is propos-
ing a budget of $615 billion
which includes a deficit of $15
billion (less than one-half of
the 1980 budget deficit). This
budget is estimated to be $76
billion larger than the 1980
budget receipt estimates.
How will the money be
raised? Here is how the budget
receipts break down:
-Income taxes paid by in-
dividuals and corpora-
tions are estimated at
$274.4 billion and $71.6
billion respectively. This
accounts for 58% of the
estimated total.
-Social insurance taxes
and contributions, col-
lected from payroll taxes
levied on wages and
salaries, will yield an
estimated $187.4 billion.
This amount accounts
for 31% of the total.
-Excise taxes are expected
to provide $40.2 billion
or 7% of the total.
-Lastly, other receipts
represent an estimated
$26.4 billion, the remain-
ing 4% of the total.
' Now, how is it spent?
-Approximately 24% of
the federal budget, $146
billion, is estimated for
.defense purposes.
-43% is going to be spent
on direct payments for
individuals. This figure
includes Social Security,
Unemployment, retire-
ment, disability,
veterans, Medicare,
Medicaid, etc. This
estimate is $270 billion.

-Interest on the public
debt will consume $55
billion, or 9% of the
-Grants to states and
localities will use 15% of
the total or approximate-
ly $92 billion.
-Finally, the cost of run-
ning government and all
other remaining costs will
consume the last 9% of
the budget.
The table below will give you a
good feel for the 1981 fiscal
year budget.

determine your garden's ex--
act needs.
A soil test can be one
invaluable guide for home
vegetable gardeners.. It will
indicate the soil's content of
available nitrogen, phospho-
rus, potassium, calcium and
magnesium. And, a soil test
will determine the soil's pH
level-- The degree of acidity or
alkalinity. By analyzing the
results, a soil technologist can
recommend the fertilization
and liming practices that will
produce the best growing
The first step is taking a soil
sample, which is relatively
easy. Check with your County
Extension office concerning
sampling bags, tools, and
testing services. Using a
sampling auger, or a shovel,
take cores of soil six inches
deep from at least 10 to 15
different spots in your garden.
Avoid unusual area, such as
well spots and burn piles,
thoroughly mix these cores
together to make one repre-
sentative sample. Place this
mixture in a sampling bag,
complete the accompanying
information card, attach it to
the bag, and deliver the
sample for testing.
The soil pH, indicated by the

test, -- will determine the need
for lime. Most vegetables
grow best in a soil with a pH
between five-point-five and
six-point-five a level that's
slightly acid, or "sour." A pH
of seven is neutral, and
seven-point-one or above is
alkaline, or "sweet". If a test
indicates your garden soil is
too acid, the laboratory pro-
bably will recommend an
application of lime to reduce
soil acidity.
Carefully follow the labora-
tory's recommendations con-
cerning the amount of lime to
add. Too much may be just as
bad as too little. And, be sure
you allow enough time to add
the lime before planting.
Dolomite is a good liming
agent. But, because it's slow
reacting, it should be applied
two 'or three months before
planting. If you're in a hurry,
use Hydrated lime. It can be
applied only two weeks before
planting, provided it's thor-
oughly mixed with soil. r
Although a soil test provides
vital information on fertiliza-
tion and liming, there's a lot it
won't reveal. For example: A
soil test doesn't show the
presence of insects, nema-
todes, or diseases organism.
And, it can't determine wheth-
er your garden is too wet or
too dry. So, it's just part of a
sound management program.

Gulf County Commission

The Board of County Com-
missioners of Gulf County,
Florida, met on January 8,
with the following members
present: Douglas C. Birming-
ham, Chairman, William R.
Branch, Leo Kennedy and
James L. Tankersley. Others
present were: George Y. Core,
Clerk; William J. Rish, At-
torney; Lloyd Whitfield, Road
Superintendent; Tommy
Pitts, Administrative Assist-
ant and K. E. Murphy, Sheriff.
The meeting came to order
at 9:00 a.m. The Attorney
opened the meeting with pray-
er, followed by the pledge to
the flag.
The minutes of- December
11, 1979, were read, approved
and adopted.
The Chairman announced
that the first business would
be to consider the adoption of
an ordinance preventing cer-
tain unsightly, health hazard
and junk yard type conditions
in the County. The Chairman
then opened the meeting with
a public hearing. After hear-
ing a number of citizens object
to the ordinance with no one
speaking in favor of its adop-
tion, Comm. Branch said that
because a number of citizens
came to the Board asking for
this ordinance and none of
them were here today to
express their opinion, he made
a motion that the Board read-
vertise for a second public
hearing. Motion seconded by
Comm. Tankersley. In dis-
cussing this motion, Comm.
Kennedy said he was against
the ordinance as now written;
however, he was in favor of an
ordinance that would clean up
health and safety type prob-
lems and that he was also in
favor of a zoning ordinance
that would prevent certain
types of buildings in residen-
tial areas. Comm. Branch
stated that the Board was
attempting to help and protect
the citizens of the County and
in no way make a hardship for
anyone-. He said he liked
Comm. Kennedy's idea of
having an ordinance to clean
up the health and safety pro-
blems. The Chairman called
for a vote and the following
voted Aye: Branch, Tankers-
ley, and Kennedy. Nay-Bit-
mingham. There was a motion
by Comm. Tankersley, sec-
onded by Comm. Branch to re-
advertise for a public hearing
on the above question, to be
held January 22, 1980, at 7:00
E. F. Gunn, County Build-
ing Inspector, requested
authorization for the Assistant
Inspector and himself to at-
tend a Building Code Seminar
to be held at Daytona Beach.
The Board authorized the two
building inspectors to attend
the seminar.
George G. Tapper appear-
ed before the Board and pre-
sented his petition to vacate
portions of Ward Ridge Subdi-
vision, Unit One and Two. He
said that this was the same
petition that was heretofore
presented, but with correc-
tions of an error found at the
time it was first presented. He
said this petition was on the
agenda for the last meeting in
December, but that meeting
was postponed because of the
Christmas holiday; therefore,
he requested the Board's
action at this time be retro-
active to December, 1979.

After consideration, there was
a motion by Comm. Branch,
seconded by Comm. Tankers
ley and it was unanimously
carried, that this request be
granted, the following resolu-
tion be adopted, and the
effective date be retroactive
to December 26, 1979, to-wit:
Bond of County Commission-
ers, Gulf County, Florida, that
the following parts of Ward
Ridge Subdivision, Units One
and Two, be and the same are
hereby vacated as follows,
All of Block 5, 7 and 8 of Unit
No. 1 of Ward Ridge Subdivi-
sion, recorded in Plat Book 2,
Page 3, all of Block 5, 7, 8, 9, 10
and 11 of Unit No. 2 of Ward
Ridge Subdivision, recorded
in Plat Book 2, Page 4.
The effective date of this
resolution is retroactive to.
Dec. 26, 1979. (end)
Kenry Kolmetz, contractor
for the new library, requested
his final payment in the
amount of $3,213.73. He said
the library building has here-
tofore been accepted and he
has received full payment, but
that this bill was for two
change orders, one to lower a
culvert on the street in front of
the library at $2,000.00 and the
other was for purchasing and
installing the name of the
building. He said this request
was before the Board on Dec.
11, 1979, but was tabled at that
time for the purpose of deter-
mining if liquidated damages
should be assessed. He further
stated that liquidated dam-
ages were considered prior to
him receiving the last pay-
ment on the original contract.
There was a motion by Comm.
Branch, seconded by Comm.
Kennedy, to set up a meeting
with the Architect, Building
Inspector, Mr. Kolmetz, and
this Board to determine if the
carpet in the library was
satisfactory after its last
stretching and to consider
payment of this bill. Motion
passed unanimously.
Oscar Redd informed the
Board that he has been chosen
as Squad Chief of the Wewa-
hitchka Ambulance Squad, re-
placing Ward McDaniel. He
said, "The members of the
Wewahitchka Volunteer Fire
Department and the Wewa-
hitchka Ambulance Squad
would like to publicly recog-
nize the efforts of Squad Chief
Ward McDaniel who is step-
ping down from that capacity
with the volunteer ambulance
squad. Mr. McDaniel has been
an unselfish volunteer and has
worked many hours to assure
that the volunteer squads
serve the public with the high-
est possible standards. We, as
members of the squads and as
citizens of Wewahitchka, ap-
preciate these efforts."
Mr. Redd asked for a dis-
cussion on the Chevrolet am-
bulance. The Chairman gave a
history of the Chevrolet am-
bulance. He said it was pur-
chased by the State under a
State Contract from Ivey's
Supervior Sales, Orlando,
Florida, on October 24, 1978.
He said that this vehicle began
showing signs of being a piece
of inferior equipment the day
after it was driven to Wewa-
hitchka; that the very first
time it was to be used, the
engine failed to start and it

has given continuous trouble
ever since it was to be used.
He stated this matter has been
brought to the attention of the
State Agency that purchased
the unit; to General Motors,
Chevrolet Division; and it has
been in the Tommy Thomas
Chevrolet repair shop on two
occasions. The Chairman said
on each occasion it was re-
turned without being properly
repaired and on one of these
occasions the ambulance was
struck by another vehicle
while on .the Tommy Thomas
lot, causing minor damage
and no *effort was made to
even repair this damage; that
a lady regional representa-
tive of Chevrolet came from
Birmingham to get this mat-
ter attended to, but she only
suggested taking it back to
Tommy Thomas Chevrolet.
The Chairman said it contin-
ues to leak oil and grease and
the engine might start, but
before the trip is completed it
will fail to start on the return
trip from the hospital. After
lengthy discussion there was a
motion by Comm. Tankersley,
seconded by Comm. Kennedy,
that the Attorney be and he is
at this time instructed to enter
court action against Ivey's
Superior Sales and the Chev-
rolet Division of General
Motors after all other alterna-
tives have been exhausted.
Comm. Birmingham gave up
the Chair and made an amend-
ment to the motion that if the
alternatives fail to settle this
matter within seven days,
court action be instituted after
the seventh day. Amendment
seconded by Comm. Kennedy
and upon vote was unanimous-
ly passed. A vote on the origi-
nal motion passed unanimous-
The Board advertised to
receive sealed bids to sell two
surplus dragline and junked
vehicle batteries. Only one bid
was received as follows:
Eric L. Teat offered $530.00
for the Bucyrus Egie dragline.
The Board rejected this bid,
due to the fact that this equip-
ment is worth $1,000.00 as
scrap iron, plus a useable

Jerry Arhelger Appearing

In Two Local Churches

Jerry Arhelger, travelling
evangelist and song writer of
Wewahitchka, will be appear-
ing at two area Baptist
churches this week end. He
will be at the Long Aver.ue
Baptist Church Saturday night
at 8:00 p.m., to speak to the
church congregation and any-
one who wishes to attend. He
will be the featured speaker at
the Highland View Baptist
Church Sunday morning at the
11:00 service. The Highland
View church is located at 4th
St., and 2nd Ave. Both pas-

Self Emj

to File R

It will soon be time for
self-employed people to file
their 1979 Federal personal
income tax returns and report
their self-employment income
for social security, David
Robinson, Social Security
Field Representative for Gulf
County, said recently.
A person receives social
security credit, and must pay
social security taxes, if net
earnings from self-employ-
ment amount to $400 or more
in a year. For 1979, a
maximum of $22,900 can count
for social security credit.
Anyone who has both wages
and self-employment earnings
covered by social security
pays the self-employment tax
only on the difference between
his or her total wages and the
social security maximum. The
1979 self-employment tax rate
is 8.1 percent.

involved in this. The Clerk
said the Mexico Beach City
Hall called him and requested
the County to have some more
lime; that he answered that he
knew nothing of an agreement
for the County to haul lime to
them and told them to get in
touch with the person they had
been dealing, with., Ituwas,
reported that the City of Port
St. Joe trucks may have
hauled lime to Mexico Beach
and the person calling the
Clerk probably thought he was
calling the city Clerk.
The Chairman reported that
the County road running from
SR381 to Douglas Landing was
constructed on property ovwn-
ed by Ed Brown. He said that
the County owned Lot 3, where
the road should have crossed;
however, the road crosses on
Lot 4. Mr. Brown is willing to
swap his Lot 4 for an area of
the road within the subdivision
that is not needed because Mr.
Brown owns property on both
sides of the road. The Attor-
ney said this could not be
accomplished due to the fact
that road right of way has a
reverter clause that will re-
turn the title to the original
subdivider if the road is

tors extend a cordial invita-
tion to the community to hear
this highly regarded speaker,
musician and songwriter.
At present, Arhelger is a
much in demand travelling
singer with several of his
latest songs, "Breaker,
Breaker, Sweet Jesus" and "I
Don't Belong Here" getting
air play and chart action all
over the nation. But this suc-
cess is but a part of the total
At an early teen age he was



Even though a person may
owe no Federal income tax, an
income tax return must be
filed if there are social secur-
ity self-employment taxes
due. This is true even if the
person is getting social secur-
ity benefits.
Under certain circum-
stances, it is possible to use an
optional reporting method and
get credit for earnings even if
net earnings are less than
The leaflet, "If you're self-
employed ... reporting your
income for social security,"
contains more detailed infor-
mation about how to report
earnings, including informa-
tion on the optional method.

ity Offices, located at 30 West

abandoned. The Chairman
said that the Road Superin-
tendent will meet with Mr.
Brown in an effort to work
out a solution to this problem.
The Administrative Assist-
ant, Tommy Pitts, informed
the Board that the owners of
the property at Corley Slough
have offered to sell the County
the necessary easements to
open the slough at $250.00 per
Mr. Pitts then recommend-
ed that Sunnywood Estates,
Unit Two, be approved. He
said that all corrections as
directed by the Board have
been made on the plat. Upon
motion by Comm. Branch,
seconded by Comm. Kennedy,
and unanimously carried, this
plat was approved.
The Road Superintendent
presented his plans to correct
the concrete ramp between
the Courthouse and jail. He
said the entire area between
the two buildings should be
paved, which will require
adding a small strip of con-
crete. The Board directed him
to proceed with this project,
but to first meet with the
Finance Office to be sure the
funds are available.


well on his way in his musical
career, when as so many
young people do, he became
involved in the non-stop main-
stream of mind pollution
dealing with reincarnation
and the occult which ended in
As Jerry would say, "Well, I
had reached the breaking

point when something unusual
happened that I'll never for-
get, though I tried to. "My
Grandfather had given me a
Bible and one night I took it
and said, 'Lord, what do you
want?' I flipped the Bible
open, the first words I saw
jumped out at me. 'The Lord
was ready to save me: there-
fore we will sing my songs to
the stringed instruments all
the days of our lives in the
house of the Lord.'" (Isaiah
For Jerry, the words (and
Word) seemed custom made,
for today you may find him
anywhere, one night in a
jammed college concert, the
next day at a khaki-uniform-
ed military base chapel . . .
that night at a church service
or auditorium. He is sharing
Jesus with as many as he can
for he knows the real reason
for living is the Author of Life.
Jerry and his wife, Loni,
have formed Net Casting Min-
istries, Inc., which is based in
Wewahitchka. This corpora-
tion has flamed into a total
effort of music, concerts,
teaching, revivals-an all-out
push with Christ as the center.

Although Marconi is credited with inventing radio, British
inventor David Edward Hughes demonstrated in 1879
that radio signals could be received from a spark
transmitter located several hundred yards away.

Shape Up For The Long Run

Shaping up has become the great American pastime. And it can
be done painlessly and without strain with the proper combination
of exercise and good nutrition. *Aerobic exercises like jogging, bik-
ing and walking tone muscles and improve cardiovascular health.
Serving main dish salads topped with a seasoned polyunsaturated
corn oil dressing is a good nutritional counterpart for shaping up.
Serve Tomato Salad Dressing with a variety of greens, raw vege-
tables, low fat cheese and poultry julienne strips.
A new booklet called "Shaping Up for the Long Run" describes
the exercise - good nutrition connection, dispelling many of the
commonly heard myths. For a free copy, write Mazola corn oil,
