County Gets A Bargain In Paving

The Gulf County Commission nad a
happy surprise Tuesday night when
they received bids on the resurfacing
portion of a $2.2 million paving bond
The Commission received what

appeared to be a low bid of $599,331.96
from Florida Asphalt Paving Company
of Panama City, to re-surface 19 road
paving projects throughout the county.
Several projects here in Port St.
Joe area will include:

-All existing paved streets in
Highland View.
-Marvin Avenue from 6th to 20th
-Indian Pass Road, from C30 to
Indian Pass boat landing. (This project

does not include a new bridge which
will be built under the new construction
portion of the paving program).
-Avenue B, from U.S. 98 to North
Park Street.
-Monument Avenue, from U.S. 98
to Allen Memorial Way.
-Allen Memorial Way, from U.S.
98 to Long Avenue.
-First Street, from U.S. 98 to S.R.
71, including 600 feet of Garrison
Avenue north of S.R. 71.
-Industrial Road (C-382), from
State maintained portion to S.R. 71.
Engineers for the project, Barrett,
Daffin and Carlan, Inc., of Tallahassee,
had estimated the resurfacing part of
the program would cost an estimated
$720,000 when the planning first began
in June of last year. This estimate had
been lowered to $620,000 on the day the
bids were opened.
Other bids received included: Gulf
Asphalt Corp., $605,262.82; Okaloosa
Asphalt Enterprises, $618,184.12 and

White Construction Co., $656,656.27.
The Commission will make a final
decision on the bids in a special session
tonight, after having the bids tabulated
and studied by county administrative
assistant, Tommy Pitts, and the
The Board jumped into the second
phase of their road building program
Tuesday night, and ordered their
engineer to send out bids on the new
construction portion of the paving plan
The engineers said they still had
about a week of work to do on the plans
but that they could have them ready by
the time construction firms begin to
call for copies to study for bidding.
Most of the new paving projects are
in the north end of the county, with
three of the 11 items on the list, in the
south end.
Streets and roads to be paved under
the second phase of the bonding

program are:
Canning Drive, Wewahitchka.
Sesame Street, Wewahitchka.
Catalpa Avenue, Wewahitchka.
Pine Ridge Subdivision, Red Bull
Island, Wewahitchka.
Juniper Avenue, Port St. Joe.
21st Street, Port St. Joe.
C-30B, New bridge on the Indian
Pass Road.
Stone Mill Creek Road.
Williamsburg Subdivision, Wewa-
John Dill Road.
Burgess Creek Road.
Bids on the new construction
projects will be received by the Board
on May 20.
In the meantime, the Commission
has instructed its engineer to ascertain
whether or not the County can enter
into negotiations with the successful
bidder for additional paving if there is
money left in the bond issue fund after
the bids are all received.

Board Will Object to Fence

A car and a pick-up truck
collided Monday just at noon
at the intersection of Highway
98 and First Street.

Investigating officer, How-
ard Rogers still hasn't finish-
ed his investigation of the
matter, but it appears as if an

automobile, driven by Mrs.
Wilmer Thursbay of Panama
City was pulling out of the
west end of First Street and
collided with a pick-up truck
headed south on Highway 98

Oak Grove.

Dredging Project Put On Hold

Last week it seemed as if
the long-stalled dredging
operation on Port St. Joe's
channel entrance would
finally get under way.
This week, it's another
According to Harry Pet-
ers, of the U.S. Corps of
Engineers office in Pana-
ma City, the project has

now been delayed indefi-
Peters said all projects
have been temporarily
halted by the Corps after
directions from Washing-
ton. The delay was brought
about by the President's
announced balanced bud-
get, which caused drastic
cuts in the federal budget.

"We now have to wait until
we see how much money
we will have", Peters said.
The project was schedul-
ed to be bid this past
Tuesday, but the bidding
was postponed after the
directive came from Wash-
Peters said he didn't

know just how long the
delay would be, but said it
would be about September
before the Corps knew how
much money it had to
spend and where they
would spend it.
"The stall order doesn't
apply only to Port St. Joe",
Peters said. "We have had
all our projects stopped."

More PayRaises Given

As expected, the County
Commission received a flood
of requests from county of-
fices Tuesday night for pay
increases to match the in-
crease granted to the em-
ployees of the Road and
Mosquito Control departments
two weeks ago.
As was also expected, the
Board granted the pay in-
creases to other employees
,9 under their jurisdiction, even
though they didn't know where
the money was coming from
or even if it was available.
Clerk George Core told the
Board he had official requests
from every office in the
Courthouse for pay increases
for their employees. The re-
quest, asking for a seven
percent increase, required an
estimated $12,200 to fund for
the remainder of the current
budget year.
Core pointed out that some
of the offices may be able to
fund the pay increases from

their current budget funding
but some cannot. "The only
place the Commission has any
money it can spend on these
pay increases is in the con-
tingency fund".
But Core went on to point out
that this fund was inadequate
to do the job. The contingency
fund had only $9,000 in it at the
beginning of the budget year
and the Commission has al-
ready had to dip into that fund
to provide Supervisor of Elec-
tions Dessie Lee Parker with
an additional $4,000 to conduct
elections this year. The item
wasn't budgeted sufficiently
in Mrs. Parker's budget at the
beginning of the year.
The largest single item in
the approved pay increase will
go to the Sheriff's Department
where an additional $6,841.03
is needed. Chairman Doug
Birmingham suggested Sher-
iff Murphy could take the
money from his contingency
fund, but Murphy countered
that he couldn't touch this

money. "All of my cars have
over 100,000 miles on them and
I'm subject to a large expendi-
ture on them just any time."
Clerk Core said it would
take an additional $2,513.64 to
increase the pay of his em-
ployees and that his budget
may be able to pay the extra
money. Tax Collector Harland
Pridgeon said his needs would
be $1,810.10 and Property
Appraiser Sammy Patrick,
$1,006.00. Neither stated whe-
ther or not their current
budgets had the money to pay
for the increase in salaries.
Chairman Doug Birming-
ham said he felt the offices
had the money available to
meet the extra payroll. Prid-
geon had claimed at the
beginning of the budget year
that his budget had been cut so
close he could no longer afford
to buy stamps to mail auto-
mobile license tag expiration
In spite of this dismal

financial picture, the Com-
mission agreed, unanimously
to allow the seven percent
wage increase and then begin
hunting the money to pay it
In the case of the raises
granted two weeks ago, each
department had money in its
budget to finance the increase.
Chairman Birmingham ap-
pointed a committee compos-
ed of Commissioners Leo
Kennedy, James Gortman,
Tax Collector Harland Prid-
geon, Finance Officer Jerry
Gates, Sheriff Ken Murphy,
Property Appraiser Sammy
Patrick to search the budget
and come up with a place to
take the money from for the
pay increase. The committee
is to report its findings at the
next meeting, May 13.
In the meantime, the county
employees will receive their
seven percent pay increase.
Maybe the Commission will
come up with the money in

Officer Suggests Dropping Charges

A news story in the Panama City
News Herald on Monday of this week
indicated that Dr. Anila Poonai, of Port
St. Joe, who has been under investiga-
tion by the Florida Board of Profes-
sional Regulation, was about to be
exonerated of the "seven" charges
against her. A telephone conversation
with Diana Hall, public relations
director for the department, told The
Star Tuesday that this isn't quite
accurate. According to Hall, the board
which makes such decisions meets only
quarterly, and they met just last month
without discussing the case.
Hall told The Star of the telephone
conference which was used by the News
Herald story as a basis to say Dr.
Poouai had apparently been vindicated
of the charges against her. Hall went on

to say that after the hearings held here
in Port St. Joe last fall, the hearing
officer in the case has decided to drop
counts 1, 2, 4, 5 and 6 in the accusations
against Dr. Poonai and reprimand her
for the third count. There was no record
of a seventh count as stated in the News
Herald story.
Hall pointed out that the hearing
officer does not make the final decision
in such cases.
When The Star first called the
department to verify the News Herald
story, Hall said she couldn't answer the
questions at the time, but that she could
check with the director and call back
within two hours. Her return call
pointed out that the charges had not yet
been dropped. She did say the sugges-
tion of the hearing officer would

carry a lot of weight when the final
decision is made on the charges.
Among the charges the board
investigated were allegations the phy-
sician conducted medical procedures
that resulted in sterility for at least
three women; refused an emergency
Cesarean section with the knowledge
the patient would have to be transfer-
red to another hospital and performed
elective surgery that was not medically
advisable on a 70-year-old woman.
A statement in the News Herald
that a decision was expected within a
week by the department could not be
verified as a matter of fact by Hall. She
said that so far as her. office knew there
would be no decisions from the board
until their quarterly meeting in June.

Gulf County will "totally
object" to the fencing of the
Apalachicola River swamp by
the Department of Natural

purchased land on both sides
of the Apalachicola River
from Apalachicola to the

Apalachicola Bay. At the time
they pledged to leave the
considerable area open to

Now, they announce they
have changed their mind
about the area. They want to
fence it off and allow only
limited access to hunters and
bee keepers, placing strict
guidelines on sportsmen and
bee keepers alike.

Road Loss


The Secretary of the Department of Transportation Bill
Rose advised The Star this week that transportation projects
in Gulf County will be delayed if additional revenue is not
made available.
Such projects include:
-Replacement of the Overstreet bridge on S.R. 386,
delayed to fiscal year 1983.
-Replacement of the Highland View bridge on U.S. 98,
deferred indefinitely.
-Resurfacing S.R. 71, 11.4 miles from Cypress Creek to
Pine Street in Wewahitchka, deferred indefinitely.
Governor Bob Graham, concerned about the critical
situation in transportation revenues, has recommended a
transportation financing program be enacted in the current
legislative session. His program would allow revenues to
keep pace with the inflation in highway construction costs
and also permit some new directions in solving Florida's
transportation problems.
The major thrust of the Governor's proposal is a method
of varying the current eight cents per gallon gasoline tax to
reflect the inflationary increase in construction costs. This
method called "indexing" would compute a three-year
average inflation factor each October and adjust the gasoline
tax based on this factor. The new tax rate would then take
effect on January 1. Just as it is presently done, gasoline
taxes would continue to be divided equally between the state
and local governments.
The Governor has also proposed to double the cost of
truck-tractor license fees, so these heavy vehicles will pay
their fair share of highway maintenance and construction
costs. Also, his program contains legislation which prevents
out-of-state trucks and buses from evading Florida road use
Finally, Governor Graham is requesting that the Florida
Legislature allocate $25 million of general revenue funds to
emphasize new directions in transportation. Greater use of
the existing highway system would be obtained through
improvements such as turning lanes, synchronized signal
systems, high occupancy vehicle lanes and one-way street
pairs. A $12.5 million revolving fund would be established to
make large scale purchases of buses. This would provide
buses to local authorities faster and at less cost than
currently is the case. The last point in the Governor's
program is a fund to support transportation improvements to
aid economic development in the state.

wastes from both the kennel
and tanning operations were
disposed of in a sanitary
manner. The sanitarian point-
ed out that he could only close
down an operation from a
sanitary violation. He could
not regulate odors.
Three of the Commission-
ers, Leo Kennedy, James
Tankersley and Billy Branch
all said they visited the site
and found it to be clean and no
foul odors detected.
Commissioner James Tank-
ersley notified the Commis-
sion it was his information the
Coast Guard station at Cape
San Blas would be closing
down on December 31.
"I'm looking, for two
things", Tankersley said.
"First, I want this board to do
what it can to keep the station
from closing down. Second, I
would like for this board to
request the station be con-
verted to a search and rescue
station and, third, I want us to
write the Department of Inter-
ior to find out about the future
of the property."
The Board agreed to pursue
all three suggestions of Tank-

Editorials and Opinions


Could Fidel Castro Now be Helping the United States?

'" Cuban Premier Fidel Castro may unwit-
tingly be aiding the American image in Latin
America by allowing the thousands of Cuban
refugees to leave his nation to make their
homes in other Latin American nations as well
as the United States. He is helping our cause
-even more by refusing to let many of those
who would choose to leave their Cuban homes,
where they do not choose to be.
With shouts of, "freedom, freedom,
freedom", Cuban refugees are going to such
.places as Peru, Costa Rica, Mexico, the
"Uited States and other Latin American
These shouts of "freedom, freedom,
Weedom" from so many former Cubans

For years, Castro has been sending his
cadres of advisors to the Latin American
nations to stir up trouble. They "advise" how
.great life would be under the Cuban system
:mand with the guiding hand of Castro.
Now Cuba is a shambles. It's economy is
lead, its services are almost non-existant and
corruption in the government is out of hand,

even for Castro. He has all but lost control of
his own nation, while trying to persuade others
to follow his lead.
With the refugees who voluntarily chose to
leave Cuba because they couldn't stand the
place, turning up all over Latin America,
shouting the reasons why they left, it would
seem to us these refugees would offset some of
the unrest Castro has been exporting.
The numbers who are leaving seeking

freedom seem to equal in number the ones
sent by Castro to do his bidding.
The United States desires good relations
with the South and Central American nations,
but everything we might do in the way of aid,
technical assistance and instruction, support
of people and government, would all be puny
beside the free will of Cubans to leave home to
seek a life of freedom in another land. A
person doesn't leave his homeland very easily.

We think it will also help the relations of
the United States by using Costa Rican
airlines to transport the refugees.
With the shouts of the refugees and the
Costa Rican airlines doing the transporting, it
would tax even the efforts of Castro to place
the blame for the exodus on the United States.
We should get some very good telling
points out of this happening.

It Appears DOT Is Tightening Screws On County

It appears as if the Florida Department of
Transportation is putting the screws on the
counties of Florida to support their request for
additional gasoline taxes.
If a news release received by The Star this
week is any indication, the DOT is twisting the
screws of influence very effectively to get
what they want.
In the case of Gulf County, the DOT is
saying that if the gasoline tax isn't raised and
other additional funds provided, Gulf County

may be faced with the prospect of kissing the
Overstreet Bridge, the Highland View Bridge
and the re-surfacing of Highway 71 good-bye.
We know the galloping inflation has
affected the DOT just as it has everyone else.
Their costs are rising and their income is
pretty locked in, just as it is for many of us.
But the rest of us are making do with what we
have and we feel the DOT could go a long way
toward solving many of their fiscal problems
without having to resort to blackmail of the
citizens in order to get what they think they

We have no doubt but what every county
in the state received a similar news release,
threatening the loss of some needed road
projects if more money isn't provided.
The question which first pops to our mind,
was why these projects here in Gulf County
haven't already been done? They needed
doing even before the money became tight
because of rising prices. What was the excuse

Sheriff I


Sheriff Ken Murphy told the
Kivanis Club Tuesday that the
altitudes of the courts in our
nation is frustrating law en-
faicement agencies to the
p*it of almost no return.
"The smallest excuses imag-
inable are usee to negate what
scims to be a good solid
aiest, causing most of the
criminals caught to go free",
3'he Sheriff gave several
e mples of cases here in Gulf
County, which he said are only
examples of what is happen-
ing everywhere, where unrea-
sonable points of law are being
made to turn criminals loose.

Hebrew 2:18 The Amplified
Key Word: Jesus!
"For becausehe Himself (in
His Humanity) has suffered in
being tempted (tested and
tried), He is able (immediate-
ly) to run to the cry.pf (assist,
relieve) those who are being
tempted and tested and tried
(and who therefore are being
exposed to suffering)."
There is really just no one
like Jesus. While here on
earth, living as a physical
man, He experienced all that
we experience in our physical
bodies. By doing so He is able
to know where we hurt and to
come quickly to our aid

murphy Says Attitude of

Courts Is Frustrating

One such example was the
arrest made of marijuana
smugglers caught by local law
enforcement loading at the old
dynamite loading point on the
Gulf County Canal. "This case
is now before the Supreme
Court and one of the men has
been turned loose because a
search warrant wasn't used to
look inside one of the trucks
carrying marijuana in the
case. "Our men were hiding
out in the woods and saw the
pot being loaded on the truck
but the court has ruled it was
dark and the stake-out could-
n't be absolutely sure what
was being loaded, thereby

when we cry out to Him. It is
His Love for us that brought
Him to offer Himself up for us
so that we would not have to
withstand trials and temptat-
ions alone. We should come to
recognize that we are never to
attempt to withstand these
sufferings without calling on
Jesus who will help us im-
In Verse 17, we see that in
every respect He was made
like us so that he could become
sympathetic to our needs.
Christian, always call on
Jesus early, as soon as you
realize there is a problem
which is bothering you. He
really does care for you.

making a search warrant
necessary to enter the truck",
Murphy said. "By the way, the
truck was loaded with mari-
juana", the Sheriff added.
Another subject discussed
by Murphy was the size of the
drug traffic in Gulf County.
"The traffic hasn't increased
much here, but even so, we
are just scratching the surface
with our arrests", Murphy
said. He pointed out that all
over the nation, arrests were a

small percentage of the traf-
Sheriff Murphy said his
department had made 64
marijuana cases in Gulf Coun-
ty during the past year.
The speaker pointed out that
the school system was cooper-
ating fully in dealing with the
problem in the schools.

Editor Orren Smith Wants to Ship Holmes'Pot Industry to Gulf County

I WAS UNDER THE impression
that editor Orren R. Smith of Bonifay
was our friend. I thought he had only
good wishes for everybody and thought
kind thoughts about his neighbors.
: Especially about his neighbors here
in Port St. Joe. He should, you know;
there are so many of our number who
came from Bonifay and Holmes
: After reading his paper of last
week, I have changed my mind. I see
where: old Orren doesn't think too
kindly of us after all.
i Not me in particular, but Gulf
County as a whole.
Orren was writing his column last
week about the Bonifay and Holmes
County boys who were arrested in a
marijuana import bust. As a matter of
fact, the marijuana importers were
using: the Tri-County Airport which
serves the Bonifay area, to land their
illegal cargo in the United States.
Orren stated, in his column: "Now
that the operation has been uncovered,
we would like to see it exported back
down to South Florida, or at least as far
away as PORT ST. JOE. We don't need

that kind of industry."
I have news for Orren, we don't
need that kind of industry here, either.
We already have more of that kind than
we need.
I just wonder where old Orren


thinks his shipment moved from in the
first place? Our law enforcement have
already put the hurt on the drug dealers
who would import it for sale on several
busts. That's why they moved to
Bonifay in the first place. They thought
they would be safe there.
We appreciate your thinking about
us, Orren, but you just go ahead and
keep the business up there. Think of the

juicy fines your county coffers will
collect from making the busts!
we lose an hour Saturday night. It's
time for the time to change back to

Daylight Saving Time, but I haven't
seen anything about it yet.
Just hang loose, readers. This is
just a warning that it is supposed to
come. If you get the word from the daily
press or the TV, you will be fore-warned
by this blurb.

I NEVER THOUGHT I would ever
live to see the day, but I have.

Our government has accomplished
something it set out to do.
That is, it accomplished something
other than raise our taxes or govern-
ment fees.
For the past two years, the

government has been trying to tajk up a
recession for this country in order to
slow down inflation.
I really think inflation has accom-
plished what the government set'out to
on its own. With the spiraling price
increases hitting us daily, folks lad no
choice but to stop buying, which brings
on recession. They had to quit buying
because they ran out of money and

things just got too cussed high to buy.
So, in a back-handed way, the
government accomplished what they
set out to do manufacture a
The word I get is that it is here.
Now, what are we going to do with
One thing the government says it
will do with recession is to raise the
postage rate to 20 cents for a first class
letter. That's doing it, boys. Nothing
like a hike in postage rates to do old
recession in.

I'M UNHAPPY with the people of
this nation for buying so many
Japanese products and putting Ameri-
cans out of work. We cater to the
Japanese electronics and automobiles
like they were the only ones in the world
who could make them. And gullible
Americans will buy them while Ameri-
can factories making the same pro-
ducts go out of business for lack of
I'm also mad at the Japanese for
putting such tarrifs on American made

goods which are also made in Japan to
the point where Japanese cannot afford
to purchase the American product. Or,
they just refuse to let the American
product e)ter their country.
I am pleased with the Japanese for
their declaration last week that they
would not buy Iranian oil because it was
priced too high.
The Japanese redeemed them-
selves a might in my opinion with this
When Iran and other mid-East
nations get to the point where they can't
sell their oil because of the price, the
price will come down.
That also fights inflation, even
better than a postage rate hike.
If Americans will now quit buying
Japanese cars and electronics, the
Japanese will no longer need the oil
they have refused to buy from the
Iranians. Such a change in buying
habits would also put Americans back
to work.
By merely buying American we
can help the Japanese meet their oil
needs and Americans meet their job
Then, everybody would be happy.

Three Students Named As DAR

Good Citizens, Speak to Local Club

Under the leadership of
Mrs. Thomas Owens, Regent,
members of the St. Joseph
Bay Chapter Daughters of the
American Revolution met last
Wednesday, April 16, at the
Garden Center in Port St. Joe
for the regular luncheon meet-
ing. Hostesses at this time
were Mrs. Nobie Stone, Mrs.
Charles Brown, Mrs. B.R.
Gibson and Mrs. Phillip
April being DAR Good Citi-
zenship Month, the chapter
had as its guests the winners
of the recent Good Citizenship
contest from the participating
high schools, Gwendolyn Sims
of Port St. Joe, Angela Alli-
good, Wewahitchka, and
Richard White, Apalachicola.
Mrs. Eda Ruth Taylor,
Chairman of DAR Good Citi-
zens, explained that the aim of
this committee is to stress the
qualities of good citizenship
among senior high school
students. She said that the
winners must have the quali-
ties of leadership, dependa-
bility, service, a"d patriotism,
1 and that all of these young
people have been widely re-
cognized for their accomplish-
ments in school, church, and
community. They are all
expecting to attend college
and have very definite plans
for the future.
Gwen's subject was "Tape-
ptry", and she spoke of
building a masterpiece
through involvement in
organizations, stressing the
need of group work in school
clubs, speech, art, science,
etc. Angie talked about faith

in God, free enterprise, and
individual responsibility, and
recommended getting back to
the basics of life. And Richard
discussed the principles upon
which our nation was founded.
Each student received the
DAR Good Citizen's pin and
certificate. Mrs. Taylor, in
presenting these awards, told
the group that the attractive
pin has thirteen stripes re-
presenting the thirteen colo-
nies; that the band of blue
enamel is identified with
NSDAR; that the four books
suggest school days, and that
there is also a laurel wreath of
honor and the torch of under-
The Chapter surprised Mrs.
Paul Fensom by singing
"Happy Anniversary" to her
in honor twenty-five
years as a member of DAR,
and Mrs. Charles Brown pre-
sented her with a lovely
anniversary cake, baked and
decorated in patriotic colors
by Mrs. James Harrison.
Mrs. Stones national de-
fense talk centered on "The
'American Family", based on
an .article by Hon. John M.
Ashbrook of Ohio, entitled
"Defining the American Fam-
ily Out of Existence". The
article lamented the many
things in today's world and
today's government which are
working together to do away
with family life, and advocat-
ing "Family of Choice". The
writer said that to destroy the
family is to destroy America;
that the fight against family is
a disease, and that we must
fight it as we would fight any

other disease.
Mrs. William Simmons
made an excellent report on
the recent state conference
held in St. Petersburg and in
all seriousness she said that
every DAR member should at
one time or another attend a
state conference.
Officers elected in the April
meeting were follows:
Regent, Mrs. Charles Brown;
Vice-regents, Mrs. Eda Ruth
Taylor; Chaplain, Mrs. Mark
