County Asks State

In St. Joe Beaches Area

If the Gulf County Commis-
sion has its way, the state of
Florida will purchase all the
street ends at St. Joe Beach
and stop the running battle
which has raged there .ever
since the first house was built
on one of these strips of land
some 10-12 years ago.
The street ends, which are
so-called because of the fact
they lie across Highway 98
from the dead end of a
dedicated street in St. Joe
Beach, have caused argu-
ments, hard feelings and court
battles in the past because
they lie adjacent to the beach
and permanent residents feel

Permanent property owners
claim the property was desig-
nated by the developer of the
subdivision as their property
to use and enjoy the beach.
The street end owners have
successfully fought the claim
as being invalid on these
particular strips of property
and have built several houses
on the parcels.

Port Authority Signs Pact

To Sell $30 Million In Bonds for Development

Port St. Joe's Port Authority signed a contract with an
attorney firm of Tallahassee and a bonding company last
Friday afternoon, to sell up to $30 million in bonds to
finance planning and preliminary work for a deep water
public port here in Port St. Joe.
Authority chairman, George Tapper, was authorized
by the Port Authority to sign the papers with the legal
firm of Bryant, Miller and Olive, bond attorneys of
Tallahassee, to prepare the issue and with Southeastern
Bond, Inc., with offices in Panama City, to handle the
sale of the bonds. Southeastern Bond has said they would
purchase the bonds themselves.
Representing the legal firm in the transaction Friday
was Robert Olive, a partner in the firm. Carl Dunn of
Moody, Dunn and Company, Panama City, represented
Southeastern Bond, Inc.
The bond program outlined last Friday would be a
temporary issue for approximately three years, after
which it would be transferred to a permanent issue used to
finance port construction.
The Port Authority has no obligation until the issue is

sold. There is no tax money or pledges involved to re-pay
the issue.
Money received from the sale would be used to
finance engineering, feasibility studies, obtain permits,
purchase property and prepare working drawings for a
public deep water port here in Port St. Joe.
Tapper pointed out the Port Authority could receive
no government loans or grants or any other assistance
until land is secured, plans prepared and permits obtained
to construct a port here.
Plans are to construct the new port adjacent to the
Gulf County Canal, south of the bridge at Highland View.
Construction of a new high-rise bridge across the
'canal by the state, hinges on construction of a port.

Ronald Reagan has selected his former
adversary, George Bush, as his running mate
and the Republicans have finally officially
selected their team for the November

It's a foregone conclusion that the
Democrats have already selected their team
of Jimmy Carter and Walter Mondale. They
could cancel their convention right now and
save the money. There will be nothing new
coming out of it.

About the only thing of interest we
witnessed in the Republican convention was
the speech of Gerald Ford last Monday night,
If Ford had made tLat speech four years ago,
he might be running for re-election now,
rather than assuming his role as a "member
of the team".
With inflation, the nation's prestige,
recession and America's lagging armed

forces as they now are, the Republicans seem
to have a more than even shot at the big seat in
the White House. An incumbent president will
be hard to defeat, though, regardless of how.
inept the Republicans or others may say the
administration has been.
Election years are interesting and gives
us something to talk about besides the hot
weather and the price of everything we buy

these days. The only thing which bothers us is
the length of the campaigns. An office-holder
who has a chance to succeed himself has too
much of his time taken up by getting ready to
run for the next election. Maybe, during the
next four years, we should give some attention
to this. We need some sort of system where the
elected can spend at least half of their time in
office governing.

Emergency Defined As Something Not Planned

Last week, a lady wrote us a letter asking
just what the ambulance squad considered
their call to duty. She had been refused
transportation for her husband from a
Panama City hospital to Port St. Joe. Since
this writer was on the committee which
formed the ambulance squad and drew up its
by-laws for operations, we feel qualified to
attempt an answer to this question. Too, she
asked us for an answer.
Consider the name of the organization:
The Gulf County Volunteer Emergency
Ambulance Service. The key words are
"volunteer" and "emergency". The service is
,manned at no cost by volunteers who give
Their time, to take care of any medical

"emergency" you might have. Just have an
emergency and need immediate attention,
and you will find them by your side in short
order. Ask for transportation from here to
White City, in a non-emergency situation, and
they wouldn't touch you with a 10-foot pole.
What is an emergency? Webster says it is
"a sudden or unexpected occurrence or
combination of occurrences demanding
prompt action." The need described by our
writer was neither sudden, unexpected or
demanding prompt attention, therefore, didn't
qualify for the emergency treatment.
The rules were purposely spelled out this
way because the founders knew they would be
dealing with volunteers and the necessary

equipment would be limited. State law now
requires emergency service with vehicles
equipped with certain tools. To make these
tools available the maximum amount of time
and in order to relieve the pressure on a
volunteer squad who must necessarily leave
whatever they are .doing to make a run, the
rules were made as they are.
It was felt by the organizers that any
elective medical transportation could better
be provided by paid services in the area. This *
avenue was taken so as not to infringe on the
territory of free enterprise and so as not to
take undue advantage of the generosity of the
ambulance volunteers. They receive enough
time in action from true emergencies.

Dear Mr. Ramsey
RE: Mrs. Farley's Letter
Being a tax payer myself, I
...op am concerned about the
rces offered by the am-
ance squad. After careful
Ba.aUbservation, I find that they
B ." e present at many wrecks,

lyinto a slimy, snake infested

time weekly to wear a pager
and have that ambulance.
rolling to a scene within five

minutes after their pagers go
off whether it be 2 o'clock in
the afternoon or 2 o'clock in
the morning. Yet persons are
always wanting to know why
they don't do more. When one
considers the condemnation
andverbal abuse tley contend
with to provide a free service
to the community, I wonder
why they do anything at all.
This ambulance squad was
designed to handle the emer-
gencies that occur in the
county, not to provide trans-
portation for persons who are
deemed well enough to be
released from a hospital.
Surely this may seem hard
core to you, but as a tax payer
I can far better understand an
emergency service not taking
me home from the hospital
than I could understand me
bleeding to death because
there was no ambulance to
come for me.
Perhaps a better word for
the squad than uninterested
would be realistic. In a service
our size with the number of
personnel available our ser-
vice must be an emergency
service. To transport people
who are being- released from
facilities as well as to respond
to emergencies would more

than tax the equipment and
personnel available. Any ser-
vice which the ambulance
squad does not provide is a
service which removes it. from
the realm of being an emer-
gency service.
I feel that all tax payers
should take the time to
examine what they are help-
ing to support, but I also feel
like they should not abuse the
service or subject a group of
willing volunteers to unjust
verbal abuse. As a tax payer
too, I must realize that my
money only pays for the
equipment used not for the
time and effort those squad
members freely give. It must
be discouraging to give of your
time and effort to provide a.
free service for this county
only to be subjected to a
constant barrage of abuse
from the community. We
should thank these persons
who provide the service rather
than questioning every move
made by this group. A group
who freely and willingly give
of their time and effort
obviously is not going to try
to be unfair or unjust, nor are
they going to be content with
providing the county with an
inadequate, inept, or unavail-
able service.
Should this not answer your
questions I am sure the
squad would welcome you
attending their Monday night
meeting to clarify any areas
you still have questions about.
Catherine Ramsey

Ambulance Squad

Dear Mr. Ramsey,
To answer the question as to
what the ambulance service
The ambulance service is a
volunteer group. The people
involved are employed in
other jobs except two mem-
bers. The ambulance service
is a "job"; if each was paid for
their time the county would go
in debt and or taxes would go
up. The ambulance squad was
organized to be an emergency
service for Gulf County not as
a convenience or taxi service.
We do respond to Mexico

Beach as a gesture of good-
We transport patients within
a 50 mile raidus. We do not go
out of county to bring patients
home. If an ambulance is
needed for this purpose, most
insurance policies or Medi-
care will pay for it. When one
ambulance is on a transfer,
another crew must be on call.
Both ambulances can not be
out of the county.

Praises Cong. Hutto

for Bay Dredging

Dear Wesley,
In July, 1978, I wrote the
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
advising them of a shoaling
condition in the channel at St.
Joe Point. In this correspond-
ence I requested maintenance
dredging to restore the chan-
nel to its original project
dimensions so that it would not
be a hazard to navigation.
Two years have passed since
this initial correspondence
and after tremendous efforts
by a vast number of people
both in government and apart
from it there is a dredge
restoring the channel to its
original project dimensions.
My thanks to you and your
paper for the attention you
gave these efforts. Through
your coverage the people of

our area were made aware of
the deteriorating conditions of
our channel and the difficult
task we undertook to obtain a
permit for the maintenance
I offer my deepest appre-
ciation to Congressman Earl
Hutto for his tenacious efforts
in Washington, Mobile, and
Tallahassee which made this
project successful. He persist-
ed with the Corps of Engineers
and the Florida Department of
Environmental Regulation un-
til they agreed on a disposal
site. Were it not for the efforts
of Congressman Hutto our
dredging dilemna would not
be resolved.

Now for those who wish to

how as a paid service. We give

proud of each volunteer. I
wish we could say yes to each

The mileage death rate for

nationwide had a rate of 1.3;
however, Florida had an in-

Dredging St. Joseph Bay Is A Tedious and Complicated Maneuver

else, there's more to dredging a
channel in the bay than just parking a
dredge boat over the part you want dug
out and push a button.
Last Friday, the U. S. Army Corps
of Engineers and the William McWil-
liams Dredging Company had several
local people as their guests on the
dredge boat Jahncke at the mouth of St.
Joseph Bay to tour the dredging
operation, the boat and have lunch with
the crew.
I was one of the lucky ones in the
party which took the trip.
Henry Boone, of Port St. Joe and
now an inspector with the Corps of
Engineers and dredge boat Captain
Marks took us on a tour of the job site
and explained the whole operation.
The conclusion we made was that
there was this dredge boat and its
attending tug boats, which weighed
tons and tons and is a massive piece of
machinery. All of this massive machin-
ery is handled by Dap Stelley in the
"lever room", who very delicately
maneuvers the digging apparatus in the

water in front of the dredge which does
the actual digging.
It was an operation about like
repairing a watch with a 12 inch stilson.
The dredge boat swings back and
forth in a wide arc, walking forward

about eight feet at a time on two legs
which sink into the bottom at the rear of
the dredge. Stelley explained, in his
Cajun brogue, while playing his pneu-
matic levers like an organist, that it
takes a great deal of attention to what
he is doing. There is a continuous
danger that the sand bank he is
removing underwater will cave in on

his digging apparatus,. which will tear
up the front end of the dredge if he
doesn't stay alert to what is going on at
all times. It doesn't look like anything
could tear up that dredge boat, but I
took his word, since he acted like he

knew what he was talking about.
Almost the entire crew of the
Jahncke were Louisiana Cajuns and the
cook was a Louisiana Creole who knew
how to rattle his pots and pans, let me
tell you.
Joseph Bay is a small job, according to

the dredge boat crew. They will be
through with the operation this week,
after only two weeks on the job.
To do this little job, it took a $10
million dredge assembly and a tremen-
dous cost of moving all the machinery

and equipment. As a matter of fact, the
captain said two-thirds of the half-mil-
lion-dollar cost of this local operation
was moving costs and set-up.
THIS ISN'T TO SAY the operation
of the machinery is cheap. There were
about two to three dozen hands on the
job and the dredge itself was drinking

some 3,500 gallons of diesel fuel a day.
The dredge itself is self contained.
The power plant which drove the
machinery was a V-12 diesel about 20
feet long and about 15 feet wide. Two
smaller diesels, about the size of the
motors in the AN Railroad's diesel
locomotives, made electric power for
the operation.
The dredge has a basket-like gizmo
on the front of the boat which is lowered
into the water. It rotates, digging up the
sand, which is sucked up by a giant
vacuum and pumped through the boat,
through a pipe-line and deposited about
300 yards from the boat, out of the way.
ONE OF THE main concerns of the
Florida Department of Environmental
Regulation was that the dredging
operation would stir up so much silt in
the water that it would kill marine life
in the vicinity. The Corps of Engineers
has a crew of four on board the job who
continuously monitor the turbidity of
the water to keep the fish kill from
According to Boone, who is in

charge of this and other operations, the
turbidity has never been near the
extreme limitations allowed by the
DER. As a matter of fact, looking at his
records and comparing them with a
demonstration of how the turbidity is
measured, the boat crew is using water
for washing, bathing and other personal
needs which measures worse on the
scale than the bay water not 50 feet
from where the removed sand is being
One of the reasons it took nearly
two years to get a state permit for the
dredging was because DER was
convinced the turbidity from the job
would be almost unacceptable.
That ought to be a good weapon for
getting future dredging permits for
more work which is needed in the bay.
AFTER THE TOUR we had dinner
on the dredge. Dredge crews have to
work 12 hours a day, seven days a week
and then get a week off. That may be
tough duty, but let me tell you from
experience, the food they get makes the
week-long stay on the dredge almost a

possibility of issuing indus-
trial bonds for the construc-
tion of its new steam power
plant The Attorney reported
that he discussed this matter
with the President of Florida
Power. The President of Flori-
da Power first assured us Gulf
County has not been ruled out
as the location of its new
plant; that Florida Power
appreciates the offer to issue
industrial revenue bonds
through the County and this
method of financing will be
considered by his company.
He said the matter of a free
tax break has not been consid-
ered by his company as
criteria in selecting a location
for the new plant.
Comm. Kennedy moved to
have a referendum election on
the question of whether or not
to grant Florida Power Cor-
poration a five year ad
valorem tax exemption if it
should locate in Gulf County,
that the referendum be held on
the same date as the first

this tax exemption. This mo-

and report his findings at the

Commissioner Gortman dis-
cussed whether a Ceta worker
assigned to the County is
required to have a physical

work. It was decided to get a
written statement from the
Ceta Director on this matter.
Commissioner Gortman re-
ported that Paris Carter is
requesting a speed break in
front of his business on the
Stokes County Road.
Commissioner Branch re-
quested that the minutes show
he is in total favor of Fl1rida

company and no cost or loss of

said he was against offering a

that at the proper time, he

Hurricane Season

It's that time of , yer
again. The time when ,,ati*'e
-inevitably spawns some'"-' tie
most destructive storms- on
earth - hurricanes. Along
those lines I recently noticed
that a local military base
newspaper carried a two-part
series on hurricanes. I
thought you might find this
information useful ,iri the
coming months - but I hope
it won't really be needed.
With winds between 75
and 250 miles per hogr, hir-
ricanes can reduce large
buildings to rubble and
devastate nearly everything in
their paths. However, some
of the most severe damage in-
flicted by hurricanes results
from the tremendous surge in
wave and tidal action, as well
as the torrential rains which
Accompany -these violent
whirlwinds. This faves the
S: low-lyingt regions and, ex-
treme coastal cofnmunities
especially vulnerable to
flooding. Moreover, tor-
nadoes often develop in hur-
ricane conditions, thereby
adding significantly to the
potential danger of hur-
S ricanes.
Officially, the hurricane
season begins on June 1st and
ends on November 30th.
However, hurricanes have
been observed as early as
March and as late as
December. More hurricanes
occur in September than all
other months combined. I'm.
. sure everyone in Northwest
Florida remembers vividly
the last such September hur-
ricane - Frederic in 1979.
Although our location has
many commercial. and
agricultural advantages, it
also leaves, us, especially
vulnerable to hurricanes.:
The Florida peninsula has
been hit by so many hur-
ricanes that it is commonly
called "hurricane alley." In
fact, Northwest Florida has
had 20 direct hits' between
S1900 and 1977. Five of~'lese
were major hurricanes and
four of those occurred in

Center (NHC) in Miami con-
-stantly monitors the environ-
ment in search of the at-
mospheric conditions that

Teak timers in old buildings have been found unchanged,
even after centuries.

precede a hurricane. NHC
can detect the signs of a hur-
ricane before it actually
forms. Once the hurricane
has formed, NHC will issue a
hurricane watch to all the
areas that could prospectively
be hit. This watch will be
followed by a hurricane
warning to specific regions if
,they are expected to be hit.
within 24 hours.
The most important thing
to remember when there is a
hurricane warning is to keep
posted' on the latest
developments of the storm.
Make sure that you have bat-
teries for a radio in case the
power fails. That way, you
will be able to stay informed
on specific instructions con-
cerning the necessary safety
precautions, availability of
shelte,i and numerous other
important aspects 'of the
storm covered on Emergency
Broadcast System bulletins.

concerning what to do in case
of a hurricane, write to:

Hopfilly, you will never
need to use the information
you receive concerning hur-
ricane safety but, if the need
arises, these instructions will
be as valuable as life itself.

Dredge At Work

The William McWilliams dredge boat Jahncke is shown
at work dredging the entrance to St. Joseph Bay shipping
channel with one of its four tender tugs crossing the bow. The
dredge's cutter heads are in the water below the brace of

cables on the front of the dredge. The work is scheduled to be
completed today, but the final day of work was uncertain last
week end. Dredge boat crews said they would definitely
complete the half-million-dollar project sometime this week.
The dredge is widening the entrance to the bay back to its
project width of 300 feet and a depth of 37 feet. The entrance
had silted in until only half of the channel was open to
shipping. -Star photo

New Disease Strikes Canines Across

State At Near Epidemic Proportion

A relatively new, but.highly
contagious disease, canine
parvovirus (CPV), has been
diagnosed across the state of
Florida, advises the Florida
Veterinary Medical Associa-
tion (FVMA).
The disease, which is not
communicable to humans, at-
tacks and kills the cells that
line the intestinal tract.
Dogs of all ages are affect-
ed, with deaths occurring
mainly in young pups, old, or
infirm dogs.
It appears that the primary
source of infection is the fecal
matter of infected dogs. Dogs
suspected of parvoviral infec-
tion should be isolated from
other dogs, immediately and
the contaminated area disin-
fected with Clorox.
Severe vomiting is frequent-
ly the first sign of the disease
followed by diarrhea (which
may contain blood), depres-
sion, loss of appetite, fever,
and rapid dehydration. Most
deaths occur within 24-72
hours following the onset of
However, since some or all
of these symptoms also apply
to many other health pro-
blems which can affect your
dog, consult your veterinarian
immediately upon noticing
any of these symptoms.
A preventive vaccine is
available. Again, consult your
veterinarian. He or she will
explain the vaccination pro-
While CPV has not yet
reached epidemic propor-
tions, general precautions
such as keeping one's dog
from contact with the feces of
other dogs should be observed.
The first cases of CPV were
diagnosed in South Florida
nearly eight weeks ago, states

the FVMA. Since then, the
disease has spread across the
entire state, reaching as far

Units of the Panama City
Composite Squadron and the

Squadron of the Civil Air
Patrol participated in a
search and rescue exercise at
Wewahitchka on Sunday, July
20th. Two member-owned air-
craft and five rescue vehicles
manned by twenty CAP mem-
bers conducted a search for a
simulated aircraft crash.
After location of the crash by
aircraft, ground rescue teams
responded to locate survivors
and protect the wreckage for
crash investigators.
Mission Coordinator for the
search was Major Walter
Green, Commander of Group 1
to which the two squadrons
are assigned. Group one con-
ducts search exercises on a
monthly basis to insure that
its unitsare capable of per-
forming emergency services
missions. Major Green stated
that "the Wewahitchka Com-
posite Squadron did an ex-
cellent job on its first mission.
The members' quick and.cor-
rect response to the search

problem could have made the
difference between life and
death in an actual crash."
First Lieutenant Fred Clay-
ton flew the search aircraft
from the Port St. Joe Paper
Company's air strip at Wetapo

ground team to the target.
Second Lieutenants Albert
Simpson and John Rolfe com-
manded a joint ground recov-
ery effort using personnel

Heat Exhaustion Can Affect Anyone -

Learn First Aid Tips to Help Combat It

Thousands of people have
been stricken by heat exhaus-
tion during the worst heat
wave in the country's history.
Many victims could have been
spared this physical trauma,
however, if they had followed
a few simple precautions.
Who's most affected by
heat? Although people who
work outdoors, such as con-
struction workers, city service
employees, firemen, window
washers, painters and garden-
ers are primary victims,

anyone who undergoes physi-
cal exertion when the temper-
ature soars above 90 degrees
F. is susceptible this includes
joggers, bikers and even sun
Of course, the elderly must
observe every precaution for
heat exhaustion.
According to researchers,
"the most common warning
signs of which everyone
should be aware are: clammy
skin, profuse prespiration,
tiredness, weakness, head-

aches, cramps, nausea, dizzi-
ness (possible vomiting),
fainting (the victim will re-
gain consciousness when he
falls down and blood rushes to
his head).
If you or a passerby ex-
perience such symptoms the
following corrective measures
can be taken for relief: Give
the victim sips of salt water
(one tsp. of salt per 8 oz. glass,
half a glass every 15 minutes,
over the period of one hour).
Have the victim lie down

and raise his feet off the
ground 8 to 12 inches.
Rest in a shady or air-
condition area and loosen
Apply cool, wet cloths and
fan the victim.
If the victim, vomits, do not
give him any more fluids. As
soon as possible, take him to a
hospital where he can be given
intravenous salt solution.
People seriously afflicted with
heat exhaustion should rest
for several days and avoid

exposure to abnormally warm
Keeping your body properly
hydrated is as important
year round as it is during the
summer. Balanced and ade-
quate body fluids are crucial
to good health and well-being,
especially while working and

Squad Operates On Hospital Team

The Port St. Joe Squad of
the Volunteer Emergency
Ambulance Service made a

disaster area out of the
hospital dug-out Saturday
afternoon, as the squad

demolished the Hospital
softball team, 17-5.
The game was best play-

Shirley Tindell tosses the ball to second baselady Brenda Godwin to force Marilyn
Connell of the ambulance squad.

ed Saturday afternoon by
web-footed individuals
since the afternoon rains
had muddied up the ground
The ambulance people
jumped off to a big four run
lead in the first inning and
led the hospital "Life Sav-
ers" all the way.
..Jerry Parrish was the
big stick for the volunteers,
followed closely by pitcher
David Horton. Marilyn
Connell led the distaff
players on the volunteer
squad from her third base
position and at the plate.
The "Life Savers" fear-
less leader, Richard Zyski
carried the big bat for the
hospital, banging out' an
inside-the-park home run
and a double before pulling
up short at second base
with a pulled muscle. Zyski
slipped on the muddy field
and mashed the package of
marshmallows in his back
pocket, pulling the muscle
even more and had to leave
the game.
SZyski was the only cas-
ualty and had to settle for
nothing more than a band-
aid all a few kinds words

-The two teams had been
practicing' for the past
month for their big game
Saturday and will meet

again sometime around
Labor Day in a re-match.
You see, their schedules
are sort of flexible.

Dr. Shirley Simpson and pitcher Rex Buzzett help
Richard Zyski off the field with a pulled muscle.

Small Greenhouse Can be Profitable

Also Could be A Very Relaxing Hobby Interest

A small greenhouse can be a
relaxing hobby as well as very
useful. It can be used to grow
speciality crops such as or-
chids, germinate seeds and
root cuttings for the outdoor
garden and grow vegetables
out of season. A carefully
chosen and constructed green-
house will give you an in-
teresting hobby which can be
enjoyed year round.
The first step is to decide
whether you want a home-
made or a ready-made green-
house. Ready made green-

houses are precisionally built
so they are usually more'
attractive than homemade
types. However, ready-made
greenhouses are usually more
expensive and they don't
always fit your own situation.
Homemade greenhouses
can be made from scraps and
therefore are much cheaper to
build than factory made
greenhouses. They also can be
built to the size which will fit
your particular needs.
Your next decision will be
what type of greenhouse
would best fit your needs.
There are two basic types of
greenhouses: attached and
freestanding. The attached
greenhouse is built against a
building using the existing
structure for one or more of its
sides. The freestanding green-
house is a complete full size
greenhouse separate from
hour home. The freestanding
greenhouse has more growing
space, cost more initially, and
cost more to heat than an
attached greenhouse. The at-
tached greenhouse has the ad-
vantage that you can get into
it easily in bad weather. It is
also cheaper to heat because it
shares one wall with your
The size of a greenhouse is
influenced by available space,
location, intended use and
cost. It should be large enough
to house plant benches, a work
bench and storage material.
Larger greenhouses are
easier to manage because the
temperature fluctuates very
Greenhouses are made with
glass, fiberglass, polyethy-
lene, or vinyl coverings. Glass
houses are very attractive,
permanent, and expensive.
These houses should be built
by a greenhouse manufactur-
er or purchased in a ready-to-
assemble package because
they are difficult to construct.
For permancence it's the pre-
ferred material.

Fiberglass is an excellent
greenhouse covering. It is
lightweight, strong and practi-
cally hail proof. It has good
light transmission, and re-
quires only a simple super-
structure for support. There
are poor grades of fiberglass
which will discolor and the
discoloring reduces light
penetration. Use a good grade
which is guaranteed for 10 to
20 years. The type covered
with a poly-vinyl fluoride film
resists weathering and ex-
tends the life of the fiberglass
covering. If you select fiber-'
glass, choose the clearest
grade. Do not use colored
Plastic film coverings are
inexpensive and temporary.
They are light weight and
have good light transmission.
However, polyethylene con-
stantly exposed to the sun
deteriorates during the sum-
mer and must be replaced
every 3 to 8 months. Polyethy-
lene treated with an /ultra-
violet inhibitor is more ex-.
pensive but will last 3 to 6
months longer than regular
Wood, steel or aluminum
are used for the supporting
framework of greenhouses.
Seasoned, construction grade
lumber should be used when
building a wood framed green-
house. When possible, rot
resistant woods such as red-
wood and cypress should be
used. If less rot resistance
woods are used, they should be
treated with copper naphthe-
nate. Do not use creosote and
pentachorophenol preserva-
tives because they release
vapors harmful to plants.
Greenhouses built with
steel require constant main-
tenance to prevent the steel
from rusting. Aluminum is the
best material to use for the
supporting framework of a
greenhouse. It is lightweight,
strong, requires little main-
tenance and will last many

Some greenhouses should be
built on foundations, others
(plastic greenhouses) can be
placed on the ground. In
Florida, where they winters
are mild, large concrete foun-
dations are not needed. How-
ever, glass and fiberglass
houses should have a per-
manent' foundation which
could be nothing more than
wooden sill of 2 x 6 boards on a
6 inch concrete footing. The
foundation should never be
higher than the plant benches
and no higher than 10 to 15
inches if plants are to be
grown on the ground.
Before buildings or buying a
greenhouse, you should select
a suitable location. The a-
mount of area available will
determine the size and type of
greenhouse you will build.
The greenhouse should be
located where it gets maxi-
mum sunlight, especially in
morning, but preferably all
day. The southern or south-
eastern exposure is the best.
The East side is the -next
choice where morning sun is
available. The next best loca-
tions are southwest and west.

Western exposure, probably
will need shading in summer.
North is poor, except for
tropical foliage plants, Afri-
can violets and orchids.
Locate the greenhouse neat
sources of water, fuel for
heating and electricity. This
will substantially reduce
building costs.
Before buying or building a
greenhouse, give careful
thought to the size, style and
kind of control desired, learn
about the problems of people
who have greenhouses and
check local buildings codes
and zoning laws before' you
start construction.

Frey Files for

Senate Seat

Congressman Lou Frey to-
day .made his candidacy of-
ficial and filed for the U.S.
In announcing his decision
to run, Congressman Frey
said, "A senator has the
responsibility and unique op-
portunity in our system not
only to handle the day to day
constituent and legislative
problems, but; equally as
important, to anticipate.the
problems of tomorrow. The
difference between my can-
didacy and that of anyone
else's in the race is that I've
been there; I know what I'm
doing; ,I've taken the tough
and sometimes lonely stands
and have been proven right on
the key issues over the years."
Frey, 46, represented the
Ninth Congressional District
of Florida for ten years from

1969 to 1979. He was consider-
ed one of the best vote-getters
in Congress, where he was re-
elected by 78 percent of the
vote and was the youngest
Republican ever elected to a
leadership position in the
House of Representatives.
While in Congress, he served
on the House Interstate and
Foreign Commerce Commit-:
tee, the House Science and
Technology Committee, the
Select Committee on Hard
Drugs, the Sub-Committee on
energy Research and was the
ranking Minority Member of
the Sub-Committee on Com-
