Strike At Sylvachem

Walk Out Monday Night In Contract Dispute

Operating unions struck the
Sylvachem plant here in Port
St. Joe at midnight Monday
The unions walked off the
job after contract talks be-
tween the union representa-
tives and company reached an
impasse. The unions set up
picket lines at five entrances
to the local tall oil plant at

midnight Monday.
According to Sammy Stall-
worth, union president, the
unions took their strike vote at
4:00 p.m., Monday at the
Union Hall on Sixth Street,
with 87 union members cast-
ing a ballot. Stallworth said
this was the entire member-
ship except two casting a vote.

The union and the company
are at odds on several mat-
ters, according to Stallworth,
including: length of contract,
wage increases, cost of living
increments, forced overtime,
pension plans, vacation pay,
outside contractors and sev-
eral minor matters.
A company representative

told The Star, "We made
what we thought was an
outstanding offer. It was the
best in the plant's history. Our
offer made increases in
wages, improvements in pen-
sion benefits, paid holiday
improvements and other
fringe benefit increases. We
don't know just exactly why
they struck."

This is the first general
strike at the plant since it was
built some 20 years ago. The
only other strike was a wildcat
walk-out which lasted less
than 24 hours several years

Both sides said there were
no further talks scheduled at
this time.

Contract Let for Dredging

It's now official. The St. Joseph Bay
entrance channel will now be dredged.
On Thursday of last week, the Corps of
Engineers opened bids and approved the bid of
Williams-McWilliams dredging firm of Louisi-
ana to dredge the channel entrance, opening it
back to project dimensions.
According to Harry Peterson, with the
Panama City office of the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers, the dredging firm bid $456,154.00 for
the project and would be on the job "in the very
near future". Peterson said the Corps would be
involved in the next week in a pre-project
conference with the dredging firm. He said the
firm has already moved some of its equipment
for the job into the area, making the actual work
start-up time approximately two weeks from

Peterson said that in restoring the channel to
project dimensions, they will dredge the passage
across the tip of St. Joseph's Point to a width of
300 feet and a depth of 35 feet.
Local harbor pilot, Dave Maddox said the
entrance channel is now half way closed due to
silting and drifting sands closing in the channel.
He said only half of the channel is now usable and
he has been extremely worried for the past year
about the restriction. "It's a miracle we haven't
hung a tanker up on the bottom there and caused
a real oil spill in the bay", Maddox said. He
pointed out that due to conditions in the channel,
tankers have been able to bring in only a half
load, causing an undue shipping expense burden
on the shippers.

Peterson told The Star this week the hold up
on the dredging project, which has now stretched
out for more than a year and a half, was due to
controversy with the Department of Natural
Resources and the Department of Environmen-
tal Regulation about where to place the spoil.
Historically the dredge spoil from this area had
been placed on the end of St. Joseph Peninsula
and has resulted in the extension of the peninsula
tip over the years. The DNR and DER both
objected to this practice, saying it would damage
the ecology in the area.
Peterson said that an agreement with the
two agencies will allow the Corps to place spoil in
the bay just inside the inside tip of the Peninsula
in the area known locally as "Shark hole".

party at graduation time.The
day had just been half used up

Hinote, mother of one of the
hospitalized seniors.
Still in the hospital are Jeff
Hinote with head injuries and
Ronald Miller with severe cuts
and loss of blood, both in a Bay
County hospital.
Michael Harris, the most
seriously injured of the seven
who were hurt, has been in a
Pensacola hospital with ser-
ious head injuries since the
accident. Harris remained in
a coma until late Monday
Those injured included Jos-

According to the investigat-
ing officer, Florida Highway
Patrol Trooper Herschel Hill,
the youngsters were driving
down the Peninsula road on a
pick-up truck, with Raffield,
Miller, Hinote and Harris in
the cab. The other four were in
the bed of the truck. Hill said
Raffield, who was driving,
said the ones in the back
began shouting to him and he
half turned to see what they
were saying. When he looked
back, his truck was leaving
the road on the right shoulder.
He pulled back onto the road,

which was a four-wheel drive
machine on large tires, came
to rest on its side in the
westbound lane of the road.
Rescuers and Emergency
Medical Technicians were
able to get everyone from the
cab of the vehicle except
Miller. He was trapped in the
floorboard of the truck and
bleeding heavily. Local rescue
squad members had to acti-
vate their Jaws of Life ma-
chine to cut the top out of the
truck to extricate Miller.
All of the injured were
brought to Municipal Hospital
for treatment. Miller was
thought to be the most serious-

his severe loss of blood. He,
Hinote and Harris, with head
injuries, were all transported
to Bay County after treatment

Seniors Receive Diplomas and Awards Monday Night

Crowded gymnasium witnesses diplomas'presentation

All but three of the 103 Port
St. Joe High School Seniors
were able to march across the
stage and receive their diplo-
mas Monday night, after a
near-tragedy cast a pall on the
Superintendent of Schools
Walter Wilder brightened the
attitude of the audience as the
services began when he an-
nounced he had hand deliver-
ed diplomas to the three
seniors still in the hospital
from an automobile accident.
He brought an ovation of
pleasure from the crowd when
he announced that Mike Har-
ris, who had been in a coma
since the accident, had re-
gained consciousness just an
hour before the graduation
exercises started and said he
wanted to come home.
The drama didn't stop there.
When Wilder read the name of
Stephen Terrell Gibbs, the
audience spontaneously stood
to its feet as Gibbs, who had
broken his neck in a swim-
ming accident nearly two
years ago, and was paralyzed
from the neck down, used his
cane sparingly as he walked
across the stage and took his

Pamela Coney said the
graduates should look back
and see what their faith -had
helped them to overcome and
accomplish. "Through our
past activities we have gained
a foundation for a beginning of
life, which we can begin with a
renewed faith."
Phyllis Cumbie congratu-
lated the class members for
"contributing to your school
and your community. You
have worked hard to achieve a

new challenge."
Dianne Graham, said she
had "looked forward to this
night for years: now I am
beginning to look back." She
asked the question, "Are we
prepared for a new life? Are

we ready for tomorrow?" She
mused that "life has so much
to offer each individual."
Ronald Minger realized the
class members "face many
things". He felt the graduat-
ing students "must show
respect, be respectful." He
urged patience, acknowledg-
ing that "Patience is bitter,
but rewards are sweet."
The patience of hard study
and good citizenship paid off
for several of the senior class,
who received awards and
scholarships from various or-
ganizations in the county.
Gwen Sims and Ronald
Minger were presented the
Rotary awards for "Outstand-
ing Students". The award was

presented by club president,
Leon Pollock.
George Tapper presented
several awards, including a
scholarship to Gulf Coast
Community College from
Stevedore Unions 1713 and

Editorials and Opinions


Dredging Contract Approval Is Some Good News

S It was good news this week to learn that
the contract has finally been let to dredge the
shipping lane entrance to St. Joseph Bay, after
S a wait of a little over a year.
It's just tragic that something such as this
takes so long to get approved and on the way,
when it is so evident it is needed. A channel
which has been in use as long as the one in St.
Joseph Bay and one which has been dredged
so many times, needs maintenance, it should
be a matter only of funding, rather than
having to go through almost an act of
Congress to get it done.
St. Joseph Bay has been a haven for
fishermen, shrimpers, tourists, industry and
shipping for as long as humans have known
the bay was here. The fishing, tourism,
seafood incubator and beauty of the bay
continue to improve, so why should we assume
that one more dredging would ruin or sterilize
* the bay and its productivity?
At any rate, we're glad the contract is
signed and the work is now in the process of
Iri a related matter, the State Legislature
was arguing late last week over whether or not

to allow counties to allow a 10 year tax
moratorium for any new industry bringing in
25 new jobs, as an incentive to attract new
We join with oLhers in saying that if the
state would merely clean up its permitting act
and allow proposed industry to know what it
can expect, and especially, when it can can
expect it, it would be one of the greatest boosts

to Florida industrial improvement this state
could ever have. We contend these rules and
the red tape involved keep out far more
business and industry than any tax structure.
Taxes can't be the entire culprit, since our
neighboring states have higher taxes than we
have. Of course, we muddied up our tax
picture some, recently, by shoving part of the
school tax off on business, farming and

industry, increasing their load and making
their trip here less inviting. This, of course,
curtails new jobs for our children.
Consider the time we had with our
dredging permitting of a channel which has
been in operation since the turn of the century
and then consider the hassle a new man on the
block might have. His problems would be
many fold more than ours have been.

Nothing Wrong with Steak and Potatoes

At long last and just in the nick of time, an
expert comes along and says Americans are
eating as they should. Henry Kamin, vice
chairman of the Food and Nutrition Board of
the National Academy of Sciences in Boston
says Americans are not killing themselves
with cholesterol-loaded food. He says a steak,
salad and potato, along with our cheese and
eggs are perfectly acceptable. Mr. Kamin
says "there is no convincing evidence that
what you eat will affect your body's
cholesterol levels."
Mr. Kamin says if you begin to get a little
snug aroung the waistline, just cut down on

fats, change from whole milk to low-fat and
cut out cheese and peanut butter.
He recommends the American diet of
meat and eggs as being healthy.
His revelation came along just in the nick
of time. Since he suggests that Americans
eat a varied diet, we're about to do just that.
It's time for the peas, beans, potatoes and corn
to come in off the gardens and time to sit down
for some serious eating of those delicious
They will supplement our beef and eggs
very well, but they also tend to do the same
thing to us an excess of fat on that steak will do

S. . it broadens our equator.
Even so, with the words of Henry Kamin
firmly in hand, we can all enjoy, enjoy, the
spring and early summer vegetables to their
fullest without having guilt feelings we are
killing ourselves by placing an extra dose of
cholesterol into our bloodstream.
Or, at least that's what Mr. Kamin says.
It's a novel thing for an expert to come along
and agree with what us peons are doing in
anything. So, as long as we have one expert
agreeing with our eating habits, we're going to
remember his name and his advice. We might
even chisel it down in stone.

Our Fond Memories of Rhythm Band Days Jolted Back to Reality

I ATTENDED A kindergarten
graduation last Thursday night. It was
a ceremony which one of my grand-
sons, Randy Ramsey, participated, so
Frenchie and I had to go. It was a
It was also an enjoyable and
amusing show the kids put on.
One of the acts the kids put on was
to "play" a couple of songs with their
rhythm band.
It called back about 40 or so years
when I played in a rhythm band in
elementary school. I remember when I
graduated from playing the sticks to
the triangle. I thought I had mastered
an art few people ever do. Then, when I
was promoted to the sand blocks, I was
just floating in air.
Our rhythm band was larger than
the kindergarten rhythm band. The
kindergarten band didn't have sand
blocks. Or, maybe the sand blocks were
just too complicated for the kindergar-
ten kids to master.
I remember we had some white
uniforms with a big green shamrock on
the chest, which our mothers made for
us, and we were hot stuff when we put

on those uniforms and "played" for an

getting our "music" just right.
It seemed like music to me at the
time. The piano would play and we
would knock our blocks, tap our
tambourines, click our sticks, rub our
sand blocks, rattle our rattles and
shake our bells while the piano added
its little bit to our melodic strains. We
were G-O-O-O-D! back in those days
with our rhythm band going full force.

I remember we even went all the
way to Sapulpa one time to play our
rthm band on the radio. We all
figured that radio station had never had

Figures released this month show
this just isn't so. Newspapers are
growing in number, circulation, people
employed and size until this business is
the fourth largest business in the United
States today. Newspapers are the
fourth largest in employment in the
nation, behind only the automotive,
steel and motor vehicle parts indust-

Daily newspapers claim most of
that growth in employees, but the
weeklies are stronger in numbers and
have almost as much circulation as do
the dailies. The dailies gained seven in
number, in spite of the stories one reads
of this daily or that one going out of
business or merging with another after
years of publication.
The weeklies increased by 281 in
the same period and have a combined
circulation of 42.3 million. Weeklies are
becoming more and more a strong
voice and an effective means of
advertising, even up against the giants
of the dailies and television.
It was a surprise to me to see that
newspapers were that strong and
vibrant in this day and time, but the
figures show the strength to be there.
I know we have experienced growth
here at The Star, even though we are
small compared to most newspapers in
this nation.
We now put out 3,000 papers a week
in a county of only 11,000. That's quite a
feat, even for a good weekly or daily.

Five years ago, our subscriptions and4
street sales had us printing only 2,000W
and we thought we doing were doing
good then.
When we first went web offset and
had to start buying newsprint by the
truckload, we could get by on one
truckload a year. Now it takes two to
three for our paper. That's 20 tons of
paper to the truckload. Any extra
printing we do takes more.
On the national scale, our little

In Memory of My Father In Law

Leon Thomas Lee was his
He left no land, wealth nor
When I remember him, as I so
often do,
I think of his words so strong
and true.
The words He spoke both day
and night
Was most always from the
Bible or a song so bright.
He loved God, his wife and
children so dear
and I believe gospel singing
was his mission here.
He traveled the land in search
of a place
Where he could sing the songs
of God's wonderful grace.
He is singing them now with
tt the heavenly choir,
Where he is never sick, weary,
or tired.
He left his wife Maebell that
he loved so great.

But told her, he would wait for
her just inside the gates.
She stayed by his bedside both
day and night,
Till the angel of mercy made
his flight.
Ten children he left to replen-
ish the land
He taught them of Jesus with a
firm father's hand.
He loved the grandchildren
and all the rest
They all loved Pa-Pa he was
the best.
When I get to heaven, this I
already can see.
I will shake hand and talk with
Leon T. Lee.

In Loving Memory
Troy Wayne Jones,
Sr. May 25th, 1980
Mr. Leon Thomas Lee was
born Sept 3rd 1905, and died
June 13, 1979. He is resting
with God.


Two PSJ Men Are

Auburn Graduates

Auburn University's new
president, Dr. Hanly Funder-
burk, who will preside at his
first commencement at Au-
burn on June 6, faces the
likelihood of awarding the
institution's 100,000th degree.
Tentative figures released
by Registrar Tom Stallworth
indicate the 1,749 degrees now
expected to be awarded at the
two campuses will bring the
total since 1859 to 100,040. But
Stallworth pointed but that
this figure may well be lower
as students, for one reason or
another, fail to graduate this
The 1,516 degrees to be
awarded at Auburn will in-
clude 32 doctorates, 2 special-
ists, 122 masters, and 1,3360
bachelors which inlcude 115
doctor of veterinary medicine
degrees. At Montgomery, 105
masters, including 62 from the
Air University program, and
128 bachelors will be awarded
for a total of 233.
This brings the total for the
Auburn campus for the year to
3,891 and for AUM to 733, for a
grand total of 4,624, according
to STallworth.
Following the customary

Commencement will
begin at 2:30 p.m. in Memorial

Both Gulf County high
school football teams entered
the spring jamboree in Mari-
anna last Friday night, with
the Sharks being the only.
team participating to win both
periods played. The Wewa-
hitchka Gators lost both their
outings against Port St. Joe
and Blountstown.
The Sharks took the field in
the second period against
Wewahitchka and initiated a
50 yard drive with Rozelle
Jenkins scoring from eight
yards out. Ashley Abrams
carried the two point conver-
sion over the goal line. Later
in the period, quarterback
Chris Adkison hit Abrams
with a pass which resulted in a
45 yard scoring play. The
extra point try failed and the
Sharks had defeated the Ga-
tors, 14-0.
In the fourth period, the
Sharks came back to bump the
Marianna Bulldogs, 13-7.
The Sharks took the kick-off
and moved all the way down
the field, with Chuck Stephens I
scoring on a 25 yard run up the
middle. Rozelle Jenkins kick-,
ed the extra point.
The Bulldogs then evened
the score on a 65 yard running
play. It looked like the Bull-
dogs would get another chance
when the Sharks fumbled the
The Sharks held, recovered
the football and scored again
on a 50 yard Chuck Stephens'
run for their 13-7 victory.

Proof of

Age Needed

for Cards
Everyone who applies for a
social security number must
provide evidence of age, iden-
tity, and U. S. citizenship or
lawful admission status, in-
cluding young children, David
Robinson, Social Security field
representative for Gulf Coun-
ty, said recently.
Parents sometimes have
difficulty finding the required
evidence for their children,
Robinson said. They especial-
ly have trouble with the idea of
providing evidence of iden-
Proof of age is relatively
easy-public or hospital re-
cord of biith recorded before
age 6 or religious record of
birth or baptism recorded
before age five. One of these
documents will also establish
citizenship, Robinson said.
*Documents which will esta-
blish a young child's identity,
and which are usually avail-
able to most families, include:
report card, school identifica-
tion card, baby's hospital
wrist band, newspaper birth
announcement, baby book,
court order for name change,
church membership or con-
firmation record, doctor or
hospital records, vaccination
certificate, day care or nur-
sery school records, or child's
membership in Boy Scouts,
Girl Scouts, or other young
This is not an exclusive list,
Robinson said. Any document
providing identifying data
such as a physical descrip-
tion, photograph, or signa-
ture may be used as evidence
of identity.
Robinson said at least two

documents must be present-
ed-one to establish age or
citizenship and one to esta-
blish identity. Only original or
copies certified by the issuing
agency can be used.

Shark Baseball Players Receive Awards At Banquet *

Sharks baseball, while not
having one of the best records
in its history, jelled at just the
right time during the 1980
The team took top honors in
both district play and region-
al, defeating Blountstown and
Wakulla in post season play.

Flimsy Excuse

for Speeding
Some motorists offer flimsy
excuses for exceeding the 55
miles per hour speed limit
said the Florida Highway Pat-
rol this week.
One driver, who was stop-
ped by a trooper for speeding
said that he was speeding so
he could get to the next gas
station before his car ran out
of gas.
Colonel Eldrige Beach, Pat-
rol director said, "One of the
most common excuses for
speeding is that everybody
else passes them if they try to
drive under the 55 mph speed
limit. This is true because
recent studies show average
speed to be over 55.

We wish to express our sin-
cere thanks to all our friends
and neighbors for all their
prayers, kindness and sym-
pathy during the illness and
death of our loved one. It is
such a comfort to know so
many people shared our loss.
The Family of
Samuel A. Patrick

In the final step before reach-
ing the state play-off, the
Sharks lost a tough sectional
play-off against Century.
Players who made all of this
possible were honored at the
annual awards banquet May
29 at the home of Coach Kesley
The Sharks had five players
make the all-conference
team: Freddie Woullard, Tim
Beard, Steve Peak, Ashley
Abrams and Ronald Miller.
The team awards were
made to Steve Peak as best
hitter with a .377 average;
Ashley Abrams, most improv-
ed who hit .300 at his lead-off
position; Tim Beard as most
enthusiastic and Freddie
Woullard as best fielder at his
short stop position.
The most valuable player
award went to Steve Peak,
who, along with hitting .377,
did an outstanding job on the
mound, finishing the season
with an 8-5 record.
Head Shark baseball coach,
Kesley Colbert, was named
coach for the Big Bend All-
Conference team.

RECEIVING AWARDS at the baseball awards night last
Tuesday were: from left, Freddie Woullard, Best Fielder;
Tim Beard, Most Enthusiastic: Steve Peak, Best Hitter and

MVP; Ronald Miller, All Conference; and Ashley Abrams,
Most Improved. All of the boys shown were named to All-
Conference team. --Star photo

Azaleas Need Care Now for

Brilliant Bloom In Spring

Azaleas may now be show-
ing symptoms of several ills
that can be easily corrected.
Take care of them during the
summer heat and you will be
rewarded with a massive
display of blooms next spring.
The most common disorder
of azaleas at this time of year
is chlorosis. It is characteriz-
ed by a yellowing of leaf areas
between the veins, while the
veins remain dark green. This
is caused by a lack of. avail-
able iron.
fhlorosis in azaleas can be
corrected by the addition of
ordinary agricultural sulfur.
However, the more finely
ground dusting or wettable
sulfurs are more satisfactory.
They act more quickly and are
more easily incorporated into

the soil. Use sulfur at the rate
of 1 pound per 100 square feet
per application, and do not use
more than 2 or 3 applications
per year. At least 6 to 8 weeks
should elapse between appli-
The home owner can temp-
orarily correct iron deficiency
by spraying plants with a
solution of ferrous sulfate at,
the rate of 1 ounce per gallon
of water.
Chelated iron compounds,
available at most garden
centers, are beneficial in
correcting chlorosis in azale-
as. Chelated iron can applied
to the foliage and or soil.
Because the iron chelates are
effective in relatively small
amounts, and an overdose
may injure the plant, the

manufacturers' directions
should be carefully followed.
Proper watering is impor-
tant in the culture of azaleas
in the summer. Watch for
signs of wilting during hot, dry
weather. A thorough soaking
of the soil in the root zone
about once a week, is all that
is necessary, but it must be
done thoroughly. Azaleas have
shallow feeder roots which
quickly dry out in dry soils.
A soil abundantly supplied
with organic matter will have
good water holding ability and
require less frequent water-
ings. A mulch of pine needles
or compost will prevent the
loss of moisture-from evapo-
ration and will keep the soil
cool and moistover the plant's
root area.

Veterans Office to '

be Closed for Week

The Gulf County Veterans
service Office will be closed
June 4, Wednesday through
June 11, due to absence by the
Veterans Service Officer,
Fred Kleeb.

Azaleas may develop sum-
mer symptoms of freeze dam-
age as the lower bark near
ground level splits. Damaged
branches should be cut back to
sound, healthy wood.
Young flower buds will soon
be forming on the healthy
azaleas plant in anticipation of
next spring's bloom. You must
take special care now to see
that the azalea plant remains
healthy and to protect the
potential blooms offspring
during summer.
Pruning or shearing of
azaleas should be done as soon
as the flowering is over and
before new growth emerges. If
pruned during the summer,
there is a strong possibility
that next year's blooms will be
reduced in number or elimi-
Snated altogether.

Bill Rich should have a big grin on his face, for that's a
7% pound bass he's holding. Bill caught the fine specimen in
Lake Wimico last week. Maybe the reason for the long face is
that he said, "I was fishing for bream."
