No Tax Bills This Year

Safe Bet

State Department ofRevenue Turns Down Gulf's Assessment Rolls

It's a pretty safe bet you won't be
getting any tax bills from the city, the
county or the school board this calendar
That situation was almost guaran-
teed by the State Department of
Revenue this week when they notified
county Property Appraiser Charles
Brock that the assessment rolls sent to
the Revenue Department for their
approval, didn't meet the criteria.
The letter turning down Brock's
efforts to get a roll accepted this year

were met with the reply: "...the level
of assessment of all classes of property
reflected on the 1980 Gulf County Real
Property Assessment Roll was sub-
stantially below just value in violation
of the Florida Constitution and the
Florida Statutes."
Brock said this rejection of the roll
could cause a minimum of 100 days in
delay in getting out the tax bills. The
wait could be even longer, or special
permission could be received from the
State to allow some shortcuts in an

emergency situation. The emergency
situation being that the taxing bodies in
the county are running out of money.
Brock said the law requires all tax
payers to be notified of changes in their
property values through the- present
re-evaluation procedures. "When we
get through with our work and it has
been accepted, we must notify all
property owners by mail and tell them
what their last year's valuation was,
what the new valuation is, and what

their proposed taxes will be. Of course
we can't do that until later on after our
office is through and the budget is set in
order.to see what the taxes will be."
Brock had added a flat 10 percent
increase to the value of all property in
the county to try and gain approval of
the Department of Revenue; to no
avail. The Department said this wasn't
enough: the rolls must be assessed at
"just value".
The Tax Collector, -who was ap-
pointed several months to finish out the

term of Samuel A. Patrick, deceased,
said he didn't think it would be
necessary to go over all 10,000 pieces of
Gulf County taxable property to come
up with an acceptable roll. "Our
agriculture and personal property rolls
are in pretty good shape", he said.
"Our problem is in the valuation placed
against improved real estate, property,
homes, buildings, etc."
Brock said his office is working "as
fast as we can" to get the new rolls

finished and submit them again to the
Revenue Department. Brock said he
had no idea how long it would take or
how much the value of taxable property
would go up in the process.
He said his office has started in
setting new values on some 6,000 pieces
of property.
In the meantime, don't spend that
money you had laid aside to pay taxes
with. You'll get a bill sooner or later
and when you do, you will probably
rather it had been much later.

Carter Names Tapper

to National Committee

President Jimmy Carter
this week appointed George G.
Tapper of Port St. Joe to the
powerful and prestigious Na-
tional Advisory Committee on
Oceans and Atmosphere for a
three year term.

Tapper left yesterday for
Washington, D.C., to be sworn
in this morning before the
start of a two day meeting of
the committee.
The committee was created
by Congressional mandate to

study, investigate and do
research on all activities in
the oceans and the atmos-
phere in the United States, as
well as working out interna-
tional agreements with other
countries in matters affecting
the oceans and atmosphere of
the world.
Tapper will be the only
member on the committee
from Florida.
Tapper said the number one
thing he would be specifically
interested in, is for establish-
ing policies on the 200 mile
fishing reserve areas in the
United States, to create fish-
ing fleets which would harvest
the maximum amount of fish
in the areas, to specifically set
policy on under-utilized spe-
cies of fish, to create a number
of deep sea exporting fishing
ports, to set financial assist-
ance, and incentives to.-4hi-
crease domestic fishing fleets.
He feels these actions would
create hundreds of thousands
of jobs in the nation and along
the Gulf coast in particular, as
well as assist in feeding the
starving nations.
Tapper said this interest
and his interest in the creation
of local port facilities here in
Port St. Joe would cause him
to seek membership on the
Fisheries and Ocean Minerals

Christmas Parade Plans

Planning got underway this
week on Port St. Joe's annual
Christmas parade which will
be an event of the first
Saturday in December at 2:00
Port St. Joe's Retail Mer-
chant's Association and the
Kiwanis Club are collaborat-
ing on production of the
parade, with Karl Bowen, who
has been parade chairman for
the past several years acting
in advisory capacity.
Last year's parade, the first
held in the afternoon, drew a
large response from those who

entered floats and attended to
see the introduction of the
Christmas season and Santa
Claus to the holiday scene.
This year, the parade com-
mittee is working toward
producing an even larger and
better parade than was seen
last year. Already letters are
being mailed to potential float
entrants to get commitments
for the extravaganza.
The parade committee is
searching for groups, chur-
ches, clubs or classes who
wish to enter floats and
compete for the cash prizes

given away by the merchants
for the top three floats each
year. The committee is also
looking for marching groups,
animal entries, decorated
cars, bikes or unusual entries
to the parade.
The committee needs your
response so definite plans can
be made as to placement,
space needed and other pro-
duction data.
Those wishing to enter floats
who have not been contacted
by letter are asked to get in
touch with Bowen at 229-8226.

A small but enthusiastic crowd gathered in the park beside the Florida
Bank and looked into the sun to hear Senate candidate Paula Hawkins speak

for a few
while after

Paula Hawkins

On Stump Here

Paula Hawkins, Republican candidate for the United States Senate was greeted in
Port St. Joe Tuesday afternoon by about 75 supporters and the curious as she made a
whistle stop speech here in the park at the end of Fifth Street. The crowd which greeted
the candidate was enthusiastic and interrupted Mrs. Hawkins' presentation several
times during the 15 minutes she spoke to the crowd and over WJOE radio.
Mrs. Hawkins recalled her days on the Public Service Commission where she said
she fought the fight of the little people and resisted the pressures of the special interests.
The candidate repeatedly referred to these "special interests" as being rife in
government, currying favor with public servants through pressure and personal contact.
Mrs. Hawkins said most government servants are decent people, but find it hard to resist
constant pressure and persuasion.
"I think it is high time to turn the government over to the people, not the special
interests. I think it is high time the people had a fighter on their side", Mrs. Hawkins
"We all know something is wrong today. I don't know, now, how it can be righted,
but something can be done to allow our people to sleep well at night once again. I will be
trying, faithfully, to find the answer to our problems when I become your Senator", the
candidate continued.
Some of the problems facing Florida, according to Hawkins are the Cuban refugee
problem, which shesaid was caused by a lack of intelligent planning; the growing crime
rate in the cities and suburban areas; the hostages "being held by that two-bit dictator in
Iran" and the strength of America.
Mrs. Hawkins closed her talk by asking, "Is America strong? Is America right?
.Can we back up what we say and want? I know you care about the answers to these
questions and I pledge myself to find the answers."
While the gathering was primarily for a vehicle for the Senate candidate to get
exposure locally, local Republican candidates Mrs. Millie Lyles and Paul Ramsey were
introduced and said a few words at the invitation of master of ceremonies, Stiles Brown,
Republican Chairman for Gulf County. Lyles is a candidate for Supervisor of Elections
and Ramsey a candidate for the County Commission.

The City gained some time
from the Environmental Pro-
tection Agency this week,
before it has to show cause
before EPA why the City
shouldn't face penalties for
extending its limits with emis-
sions of suspended solids and
BOD from its Wastewater
Treatment Plant.
The City was notified last
week that it must appear in
the Atlanta office of EPA on
Monday morning with its
defenses and documentation
in the matter, which would
have worked a hardship on the
City's administration.
In a telephone conference
with EPA this week, it was
pointed out the manager of the

plant, and the only one who
could answer the technical
data at present, was on
vacation until the first of the
month. The EPA agreed to set
a later date for the hearing,
probably within two or three
The notice sent to the City
last week said the City could
be subject to a heavy fine
(usually about $5,000 a day)
for placing the emissions
which exceeded EPA's speci-
fications into the Gulf County
Canal. The times of the
unusually high emissions were
April, May and June of this
year. The emissions have been
near and slightly over the
maximum allowed for some

time, and has been under
constant surveillance by the
City and EPA.
The continuing problem is
one of the reasons engineers
have been working for nearly
a year, now, making study of
the plant and its operations to
find the reasons for exceeding
the limits in these two areas.
Method of treatment and
limits of introduction of
wastes to the plant have all
been approved and set up by
EPA, but still the emissions
continue to run over the limits,
Engineers still have not put
their finger on the cause.
At the last meeting of the
tripartite, which conducts the

business of the plant, consist-
ing of representatives from
the three prime customers,
the City, St. Joe Paper Com-
pany and Sylvachem, plant
manager Bob Simon said the
plant is receiving less than its
allowed limits of the two
culprits, but still the emissions
are too great.
Simon pointed out that the
plant was operating as it was
designed to do, introduced
material was below the limits,
the plant was operating below
capacity, but still the emis-
sions were at or above allow-
able limits consistently.
Engineers are nearing, an
end to their study and still
have not come up with a

definite answer as to what is
causing the problems nor have
they suggested any solutions
to the problem: The entire
study is expected to be com-
pleted by the end of this year.
The City has been told by
Florida's Department of En-
vironmental Regulation that
they think the emission limits
for the plant are too tight.
These suggestions by DER
and the fact the City is trying
to locate the cause of the
problem cited by EPA causes
the Commission to feel it can
successfully answer the ques-
tions of EPA and gain their
indulgence in the matter until
the present engineering study
is complete.

Store Victim of

Daylite Robber

The Gulf County Sheriff's office and the Port St.
Joe Police Department arrested Calvin Johnson, age
28, of Port St. Joe Monday afternoon, charging him
with the robbery of Duren's -Economy Store on
Highway 98.
Gulf County Sheriff Ken Murphy and Police Chief
Roy Robinson, said Johnson allegedly entered the store
Moodly afternoon about 3:00 p.m., and snatched a
\ bank b containing n.undisclosed- amount of.eash--
and fled the store on foot. Johnson was arrested a short
while later by the joint law enforcement task force and
charged with strong arm robbery.
Johnson, who is on probation for a previous
violation, was arraigned before Judge David Taunton
Tuesday and is being lodged in the Guh County Jail,
without bond, pending action by the Probation and
Parole Commission.
Sheriff Murphy and Chief Robinson report that the
case is still under investigation by members of the two


Editorials and Opinions


If We're So Great, WhyDon't We Use Our Greatness?

James Weighart, a syndicated columnist
with the New York Daily News, offered in his
space last Saturday that President Carter has
finally come up with a speech which will serve
to unite the Democrats. and cause them to
reconsider any considerations they may have
had for abandoning the present administra-
.. tion for the uncertainties of another.
Weighart describes Carter's newest
speech as "a clear and concise statement of
his vision of the presidency and of America."
The columnist says, the speech puts
together "the final bit of chemistry required to
put the finishing touches on the political
In his speech, President Carter views the
awesome responsibilities of the office and of
his differences with Republican candidate
Reagan in how these responsibilities should be
carried out.
In his newest speech, Carter describes the
Presidential office thusly: "It's an office
which has tremendous power and responsibil-
* ity and also very severe constitutional
* The president says, "Our present chal-
lenges fade into relative insignificance" in
relation to the Civil War, the World Wars, the

Depression and civil rights.
The president says our country is not
energy starved. He points out that OPEC has
only six percent of the world's energy
resources while the United States has_ 24
percent. He points out that our oil and gas
wells are increasing in number every year and
our coal reserves are the largest in the world.
In this new speech, the President points to
the wealth of the nation's soil to grow food; the
stability of our technology, which has the
nation receiving over $5.5 billion each year
just to use our patents.

As for our form of government, Carter
says "Other nations look on us with
The speech sounds good. We agree with all
the points. Our nation is great, strong,
self-sufficient, rich, innovative, and has the
best system of government in the world. We
heartily agree with Carter's closing statement
that' "no matter what its basic philosophy
might be, no nation earth wants to emulate
the government of the Soviet Union."
While we agree with the President on our
nation's position, it causes us to wonder even

more why the Presidency hasn't told the
Russians to get out of Cuba; why our nation is
depending on OPE(q with its six percent of the
world's supply of energy as opposed to our 24
percent; why a large bulk of our nation's
goods are made outside this country, even
with all our expertise and why, if we are so
admired, does our nation become the first
target of those who would vent their anger
throughout the world.
Is it the fault of the Presidency and the
manner in which these "awesome responsibil-
ities" have been administered?

Who's Going to Cut the Grass In 40 Years?

What has suddenly become wrong with
having babies?
A newspaper article the other day gave
forth the startling news that the Washington,
D.C. area had recorded more abortions during
the past 12 month period, than it had recorded
Following in the article was another
startling statistic. A survey showed that of 900

women graduates from an Ivy League school
in 1977, only 120 had married. Only three had
given birth. One is to assume the other 780
ladies are still single or taking advantage of
the modern ignoring of the old morality to live
together or they are living as singles.
For only three of 900 women in the prime
of their baby production years to have
produced progeny is really for this country to
think seriously about.

Why aren't they having babies?
It couldn't be the times. We would
certainly hate to be starting out with a new
family in these times, but we would have
hated to be starting out with a new family and
its responsibilities back when our parents did
so, too.
It all is convenient now for the birth rate to
drop so drastically, but who is going to be#
cutting the grass 40 years from now?

Team with the Most Characters Is Bound to Win the World Series

BY THE TIME you read this, the
World Series will be over and Kansas
Citywill be the new baseball champions
of the United States.
Even though the Royals had won
only one game when this was written,
J'm going on the basis of two certain
pieces of infallible sourcery.
-. First, there have been very few
Steams which won the first two games of
the Series and went on to take the whole
bundle. The Phillies came into the
gapnes after a traumatic series with
Houston and were playing only on
nervous energy and a gleam of that
? Series money in their eye.
This isn't enough to sustain a
continuous attack. Witness the last'
fight of Muhammad Ali. He fought on
the same resources and he lost.. bad.
The second reason I think the
Royals will win is because they have
the most wierd characters playing on
their baseball team.
For instance.
Look at the New York Yankees.
: They got rid of Billy Martin, the biggest
character in all of baseball and they
came in second best.
The Royals have one U. L.
: Washington, who plays baseball chew-

ing on a match stick all the while.
When I grew up,' chewing on a
match stick meant one of very few
things: it meant one had a mouthful of
snuff he would stir occasionally with


the match stick; he had something
between his teeth and was using the
match stick for a toothpick, or, the
match stick meant he was cool. He was
disdainful of whatever was going on
around him because he could take care
of thpe situation, whatever it was.
I think this last is the appearance
U. L. wants to give. He's saying, "I can
play this' game first rate and there is
nothing anybody can do to disturb me."
Maybe he's right unless

somebody hits him in the face with a
baseball, then U. L. will do his best to
digest that match stick.
ADDED TO U. L. the Royals have

earn the Series bonus to pay that bill. It
ought to just about do it.

thinking of the doctor bills to correct his

of characters. They had to have to get
into the finals.
There's outfielder Lonnie Smith,
who continues to amaze me that he can
find a new way to commit an error or
goof-ball play in every game he gets in.
Lonnie is versatile.
Then, there's the Phillies Pete Rose
and reliever Tug McGraw who. beats
himself in the thigh with his glove after
the end of every inning. McGraw has

been around the league, but he is still
going strong and fooling the batters. If
he could just keep his leg from going to
sleep while he is on the mound, he
might stay around a little longer. The
pounding with the glove seems to wake
it up in short order.
The Phillies main man on the
mound is afflicted with a tic in the right
side of his face which gives him the
appearance of uncertainty on the
mound ... until he turns the baseball

Foundation plantings are
the heart of good home
landscape design.
Such plantings imply a
heavy massing of materials
around the base of a building,
which is a most unimaginative
way to approach landscaping.
Often, inside the home, the
homemaker feels that every
inch of wall space must be
covered with a piece of
furniture. The same idea often
prevails in an approach to
outside plant design. What
they're actually doing such a
case is providing a divider
between the structure and the
eye, thus one does not comple-
ment the other.
Every effort should be made
to arrange plants so that the
building will be in harmony
with the surrounding. Simpli-
city in the planting is a basic
component of all good land-
scape design. Simplicity in the
planting is a basic component
of all good landscape design.
Simplicity does not mean
monotony. Rather, it is vari-
ety without confusion. A large
variety of plant material can
result in a cluttered appear-
Just as good design is based
on simplicity, so also is ease of
maintenance. Maintenance
should be considered in the
planning stages of landscap-
ing and not as an afterthought.
Winding border edges, scat-
tered arrangement of flower
beds, garden accessories,
shrubs and trees are a few
items which create problems
when unplanned.
Interest in a landscape
planting is often created by
contrast. This can be contrast-
ing ground cover other than
grass in planting design. In
addition, one might become
more aware of the contrasts in
plant forms, texture, flower,
fruit and foliage color, with
the possible introduction of
certain non-living structural
elements. These could be
interesting paving patterns,
screens or baffles, planters
and water features.

October Meeting of DAR

Marks 5th Anniversary

The St. Joseph Bay Chapter
Daughters of the American
Revolution is again in session
following the summer recess.
The first meeting of the DAR
new year was held at the
Garden Center in Port St. Joe.
at noon, October 15, with the
new regent, Mrs. Charles
Browne, presiding. The lunch-
eon was served by the Port St.
Joe Garden Club and hostess-
es were Mrs. Thomas Owens,
Mrs. L. W. Wells, Mrs.
Charles Smith and Mrs. Paul
This meeting was special in
that it marked the 50th
anniversary of the chapter,
organized in October, 1975.
The October program cen-
tered on Americanism, the
title being "Perpetuating .the
Spirit of American Indepen-
dence". The two speakers,
Mrs. Francis Guidrez and
Mrs. Joseph McCoy of St.
Andrew Ba: Chapter DAR in
Panama City, were presented
by Mrs. Owens who reminded
the group that both had
attended the organizational
meeting five years ago. Mrs.
McCoy was Regent of her
chapter at that time and Mrs.
Guidrez a charter memter and
past regent.
Reporting on the 89th Con-
tinental Congress, Mrs. Gui-
drez first reminded her listen-
ers that NSDAR is the world's
largest women's patriotic
The opening night, Thurs-
day was the most thrilling,
with its colorful processional
and the concert by the U.S.
Marine Band. She told of the
excellent programs presented
on "States Regents" night of
elections, of the 500 pound
birthday cake and of the
attendance numbering 3,800.
Numerous pictures were pas-
sed among the members.
In her discussion of the
national defense luncheon,
Mrs. McCoy referred to SALT
II, saying that the Soviets had

broken the SALT I agreement
in more than 50 ways. She
referred the group to an
article in the August-Septem-
ber issue of the DAR maga-
zine, "America Needs a New
Strategy", and urged the
reading of the book, "The llth
Hour", which is in the Corinne
Costin Gibson Memorial Li-
brary in Port St. Joe. Mrs.
McCoy, who is chairman of
the state program committee,
commended Mrs. Browne,
whose 1979 program received

the state and national awards.
Another interesting feature
of the October meeting was
Mrs. Paul Fensom's informa-
tive report on the fall forum in
St. Petersburg which she and
Mrs. Myrtle Childers had
attended. She shared an im-
pressive article urging the
citizens to go to the polls on
election day, and listing a
number of prominent people
who had won elections by a
single vote.
Chapter members listened

with pride as Mrs. George
Suber, chairman of "Constitu-
tion Week", gave a resume of
summer activities which will
be reported later.
Members are requested to:
get favorite recipes to Mrs.
Brown at once; bring gifts for
veterans to November meet-
ing (games, books, maga-
zines, puzzles, billfolds, sta-
tionery, pajamas, cards, toilet
articles, etc.); bring Camp-

icola Northern Railroad, at

the end of Reid Avenue, at
The carnival will begin at
.11:30, and will continue
through 3:00 that afternoon.
The day promises much
both for the young, in age and
at heart, and for those who
enjoy just sitting and eating
raw oysters on the half shell
while watching the children
enjoy themselves.
The Carnival will feature
the fish pond, duck pond,
country store,-cake walk, raw
oysters on the half shell,
served by the Port St. Joe

for the school during the year.
This year back drapes for
the stage and wall clocks are
planning to be purchased.

Postage stamps which have
stuck together will come

problem without completely

Growing Plants Along

the Coastline Is Difficu

by: Dr. Robert J. Black
Extension Urban Horticultur-
Gardening along Florida's
coastline is a difficult proposi-
tion to say the least. Plants
grown here are "subject to
constant wind, abrasion from
blowing sand and exposure to
salt spray. Add to this the fact
that soils near the coast are
very infertile, practically de-
void of important soil organic
matter, extremely dry and
often contain excess salts and
you quickly see why this is a
hostile environment for many
ornamental plants.
Fortunately, there are sev-
eral ways the homeowner can
partially overcomelhese pro-
blems., Prqpr, pi:. prpara-
tion is a-good place to start.
The inherent low fertility of
coastal soils can be compen-
sated for by addition of
fertilizers containing nutri-
ents needed by plates. How-
ever, fertilizers can quickly
leach out of these soils since
there is little humus or clay to
hold the nutrients. Any type of
organic matter will be benefi-
cial from compost to
- commercial peat. Organic
matter will not only aid
retention of added fertilizer,
but will retain moisture, and
make coastal soils less
drought. Fertilizers contain -
ing minor elements like iron,
copper, zinc, etc., often need
to be applied to the soil in

coastal areas.
Screens of plant materials
can be used to reduce wind
and sand damage, thus mak-
ing the site better to growing
So far, we have partially
solved some of the problems of
gardening on the coast, but the
remaining problem excess
salt is perhaps the toughest
to overcome.
Salt adversly effects plants
in two ways. Excess salts in
the soil greatly reduce the
water uptake by plants. Even
if the soil has plenty of water,
little may be available to
plants if too many salts are
present. Secondly, salts can be
directly toxic to plants. Put
some tablesalta v wet blade
of grass, and you'll see what
salt-burn looks like. Salt spray
will produce a characteristic
scorched or burned appear-
ance on leaves and leaves will
eventually drop off the plant.
Salt burns not only leaves but
also roots if in excess in the
For plants susceptible to
salt toxicity there are only two
ways to solve the problem.
Movement of fresh water
through the soil is the only
method of removing the salt
and washing of salt from
leaves by rain or irrigation is
the only way to prevent burn.
There are no "magical chem-
icals" which will remove salt
from the soil or plant foliage.
Only leaching with fresh
water will really be effective.
But what if you can't
irrigate or your water supply
is, itself, too salty? Then you
have the second alternative -
remove sensitive plants and
replace them with "salt -
tolerant" species.
It would be impossible to list
all the salt-tolerant plants we
can grow in Florida but a
selected few might be helpful.
The following plants are re-
ported to be highly tolerant of
salt spray.
Vines -Climbing fig, Algerir-
ian ivy, honeysuckle, alla-
manda, flame vine.
Ground Covers Dichondra,
lily turf, lippia, periwinkle,
trailing lantana, wedelia,
zamia, sedums, dwarf cari-
ssa, and many dwarf junipers.
Shrubs Agave, yucca,
boxwood, elaeagnus, yaupon
holly, carissa, wax myrtle,
oleander, pittosporum, zam-
ia, and again many junipers.
Palms Cabbage palm,
palmetto, coconut, Canary
date, pindo, Washingtonia,

Common ryegrass has
many names, including Ital-
ian, American, Oregon, im-
ported, domestic, native and
annual rye. It is widely
adapted, does well in either
sun or shade and tolerates
frequent close mowing. If
seeded heavily and mowed
closely, it can provide a very
dense and attractive lawn
throughout the winter. Since it
is an annual it will die out late
spring or early summer. By
the time the ryegrass dies, the
permanent lawngrass should
be actively growing and will
provide color and cover the
rest of the growing season.
The ryegrass will have to be
reseeded the next winter when
the permanent -grass again
browns off and goes dormant.
Establishment of winter
ryegrass is fairly simple
procedure. It is best to wait
until the permanent lawn-
grass is apr-oaching or has
reached its dormant period.
Seeding time varies from
October in North Florida to
late November in South Flo-
rida. South Florida is usually
so warm that the lawngrasses

fertilizer spreader can be used
to apply the seed. For best
coverage apply half the seed
in one direction and the rest at
a right angle to the first
application. A more uniform
stand can be established this
way. It is not absolutely
necessary but if possible,
top-dress the seed with about
one-eighth inch of soil to cover
the seed. The trick in estab-
lishing the ryegrass if proper
watering. The seed must be
kept moist, not flooded, for
proper germination and grow-
th of the seedlings. This may
mean light watering several
times a day, especially during
mid-day. Water just enough to
keep the seeds moist. Continue
frequent watering until the
plants are well established.
Begin mowing when the
grass is tall enough to cut
around one or two inches.
Maintain this height by week-
ly cutting throughout the
winter. Water when necessary
and fertilize as often as
necessary to maintain desired
growth and color.
Don't leave your lawn
brown and unsightly this
winter. Color it green with
ryegrass, and go first class
with grass.

Opening Kick-off TD and Two

Recovered Fumbles Beat Sharks

Blountstown turned one of
its fleet Tigers, Cuyler In-
gram, loose on the kick-off for
a 96 touchdown run last
Friday night, to put the Sharks
behind by six points in the first
13 seconds of the football
game. The Tigers managed to
keep the Sharks behind all
night long, even though the
Sharks stayed within striking
distance of the Tigers.
Except for the' opening
game run by Cuyler, both
teams played on about even
terms, statistically, all night
long, with the Tigers getting
the breaks when it counted,
including a Shark fumble in
the last period, which Keith
Bailey carried across the goal

line for the Tigers final score
in the last three minutes of the
game, putting it out of reach of
the Sharks.
The Sharks actually moved
the ball 20 yards further than
the Tigers, even though the
Tigers had the winning score.
The Sharks gave the Tigers
another opportunity to score
in the first period, when, on
their second possession, Alan
Sisk came barrelling through
the middle on first down for 10
yards, but fumbled the ball on
.the Tiger 47. The Tigers
recovered the loose ball and
on the third down, Charles
Moore scored again for the
Tigers from five yards out,

giving the Tigers a 13 point
lead in the first period.
The Sharks had a break in
the last half minute of the first
half when Alan Sisk pounced
on a Tiger fumble on the Tiger
13 yard line, but the clock ran
out before the Sharks could
put the ball across the goal
line. -
In the third period, the
Sharks began to put the
pressure on the Tigers. As the
period opened, Chris Adkison
put a 22 yard pass right in the
hadtds of Rozelle Jenkins and
Jenkins picked his way
through the Tiger defense for
23 yards and Kip' Altstaetter
sacked quarterback Engram.

The Tigers were also apply-
ing the pressure and came up
with another touchdown,
which started after an Alan
Sisk punt was blocked deep in
Tiger territory on the 32.
Three plays later, Charles
Moore put another TD on the
scoreboard for the Tigers on a
two yard run. The Tigers now
had 19 points on the board and
the Sharks were yet to score.
Then came the last period,
and the big Shark push.
Chuck Stephens came
through the line on a deter-
mined run to score and put the
Sharks in the point column.
Harry Bush blocked the point
after attempt, but the Sharks
were feeling good with points
on the board. The drive was
sparked by a seven yard run
by Chris Adkison and a 15
sweep of the left side by
Ashley Abrams.
Exactly one minute later,
the Sharks recovered an En-
gram fumble on the Tiger five.
On the first play from
scrimmage, Abrams shot over
left tackle for the score and
the Sharks had 12 points and
closing in on the Tigers with
The Sharks had the Tigers
stopped again on their own 18
yard line, but a controversial
dead ball foul called by the
referees gave the Tigers 35

yards in penalties in one
swoop and they were on the
march again. On the first play
after the controversial call,
Charles Moore broke loose
and went 53 yards for a
touchdown. Engram passed to
Bailey for two points and the
Tigers had a 27-12 lead.
With three and a half
minutes left, the Sharks had
the ball again on their own 32
yard line. Adkison tossed a
pitch-out to Abrams, who
missed the ball. Keith Bailey
scooped up the loose ball and
went over the goal line un-
touched to score again for the
Tigers. Engram carried the
ball over for the two points.
The Sharks scored again on
an exciting 42 yard pass play
from Adkison to Abrams and
the same combination put two
more points up for the conver-
sion, winding up the ball game
at 35-20, with the Sharks on the
short end of the score.
Friday night is an open date
for the Sharks. ,

Baker Shuts Down

Gator Run Attack

It was a long trip to Baker
-last Friday for the Wewa-
hitchka Gators and an even
longer one home after the
Gators had been mauled, 41-0
by Baker:
Baker cut off the potent
Wewahitchka running attack,
holding the Gators to only 47

yards on the ground and 23 in
the air.
In the meantime, Baker's
running threat, Dexter Hart
was piling up three touch-
downs on 227 yards in 23
Hart scored on an eight yard
run in the first quarter and the







extra point attempt was no
good. Baker scored two more
times in the first quarter on
sneaks by quarterback Duke
Harrington. The first was a
one yard dive which was
followed by a run by Hart and
the second was a two yard
play that was topped by a two
point run by Randy Martin.
In the second quarter, Ba-
ker made it 29-0 on a six yard
tally by Martin and then he
added the extra point.
Hart had a pair of scoring
runs in the third quarter. The
first was from 37 yards and
the second from the one. Both
extra point attempts failed.
The Gators played the game
without the services of their
fleet halfback, Steve Stripling.
Stripling sat out most of the
game with an injured elbow.
Tomorrow night, the Gators
play their last home game of
the season, when they host
Walnut Hill. Walnut Hill edged
the Gators out of the state
play-offs last year.

Older Americans
There is no question that
there is a dramatic change
under way right. now in
America. We, as a country,
are rapidly becoming a nation
of older people. Lower death
rates and longer life spans
have brought an increase in
the total number of older
people in America.
In proportion to the
population as a whole, older
Americans are the fastest-
growing segment of our
population. Nationwide,
there are now 25 million
elderly people. Note these
-A child born in 1900
could expect to live only 47
years. A child born today can
expect to live 73 years. In the
last ten years alone, the death
rate in the over-65 age group
has declined 14%.
-Between 1900 and 1978,
the number of people in the
U.S. age 65 or over has in-
creased eight times. By the
year 2000, the number will
exceed 31 million.
-One out of seven per-
sops in America is over 60. In
50 years the ratio will be one
out of four the current
ratio today in Florida.
-For the first time, in
1980, the number of
Americans over 60 will sur-
pass the number of children
under 10.
With each passing day,
these demographic facts are
having a profound impact
upon family patterns,
.marketing, education, social,
and. government programs.
Business and government are,
of necessity, having to alter
products and programs to ad-
just to these changes.
In particular, government
at all levels has to come to a
better understanding of the
problems of the elderly and
how to cope with them. First
and foremost, the elderly are
especially vulnerable to the
effects of high inflation.
Fixed incomes coupled with
relatively fixed assets cannot
keep up with the rampant in-
flation we have faced during
the past decade. Surprisingly,

the cost of living for the
elderly has risen faster than
the cost of living for others.
The reason for this difference
is the simple fact that the
elderly must devote a larger
portion of their income to the
core necessities such as hous-
ing, fuel, medical care, :and
food. Over the past ten years,
these costs have risen faster
than other goods.
Congress has recognized
that actions it takes can have
a devastating impact upon
the elderly and it now con-
siders this factor in all aspects
of legislation. Indeed, even a
seemingly innocuous piece of
legislation can have a severe
impact upon the lives of the
elderly. However, there are
many groups now watching
legislation on behalf of the
older segment of our society
and they have done a very ef-
fective job of pointing out
the legislative pros and cons.
Next week I will address
legislation which impacts this

"For over two decades

Dempsey Barron has been a

lawmaker who has stood up to

those who would weaken the

criminal laws of Florida..."

What would cause the law enforcement officers of Florida
to endorse Senator Dempsey Barron with such strong words?

Consider the Dempsey Barron record on crime:

1. Passed the mandatory sentence for use of a gun in a commission of a crime.

2. Passed the toughest law in the United States on drug trafficking.

3. Supported the right of individuals to protect themselves in their homes from
vicious criminals.

4. Supported the law to eliminate bail for drug dealers and pushers during the time
they are appealing.

5. Helped to raise the average education level of law enforcement officers in our
state from eighth-grade level to first-year college level in less than a decade.

Yes, Senator Barron is tough........ tough on criminals.

field, of vision. It also warns
approaching motorists and
pedestrians of the car's pre-
sence," concluded Beach.
