Ordinance Passed Tuesday

William J. Branch, Jimmy
Gortman and Eldridge Money
took their oath of office on the
Gulf County Commission
Tuesday morning and started
new four year terms on the
Board. Both Branch and Gort-
man are beginning their sec-
ond successive terms on the
Commission and Money is
starting his second after a four
year interruption.
In re-organization, the Com-
mission elected James Tank-
ersley, in the middle of his
first term, as chairman of the
board, with Gortman to serve
as vice-chairman.
The Commission appointed
all their supervisors to con-
tinue in their present posi-
In his last official act as
chairman, Doug Birmingham
appointed two members to the
Apalachee Planning Council,
both of whom are required to
be elected officials from the
county. Birmingham appoint-
ed Gortman as the elected
county official to the Council
and Mrs. Faye Cox, a city
commissioner of Wewahitch-
ka as the elected city official.
Governor Bob Graham re-
cently appointed James Costin
of Port St. Joe as the citizen
member to the organization.
Getting right into the busi-
ness facing the county, the
new board had a letter from
Mexico Beach offering to meet
with the Commission to dis-
cuss installation of a central
water service to St. Joe
Beach, with Mexico Beach
furnishing the water and
distribution system..

The letter, from Mexico
Beach Mayor Jim Heathcock,
said Mexico Beach has re-
ceived approval of a loan from
Farmers' Home Administra-
tion to put in the system, but
needs some agreements with
the county before they could
begin construction.
One of the things to be
discussed is whether or not the
system would be feasible and
pay its own way.
Commission Billy Branch
noted that the county has
contracted with engineers to
make a feasibility study of the
area with the view in mind of
the county helping with crea-
tion of a water district on the
beaches for this purpose. The
County had planned to put in a
supply well at the beach to
serve the area.
* Branch suggested the coun-
ty wait for the result of the
feasibility study before pro-
ceeding any further with
Mexico Beach. "We can see
better what we are talking
about with the study in our
hand", Branch said.
Another long-time thorn in
the Commission's side has
been the long-running battle
with the U.S. Corps of En-
gineers, to get them to re-open
Corley Slough, which has been
stopped up with spoil from the
Corps' dredging operations on
the Apalachicola River.
A letter from the Corps this
week said they were -ready to
open the slough as soon as
they could get a permit from
the State of Florida.
The Commission asked their

Time Changed for

Christmas Parade

The time has been changed
for this year's version of the
Christmas parade here in Port
St. Joe, according to Kiwanis
Club parade committee chair-
man, Al Ray. ,
Ray said the parade, which
had originally been scheduled
for Saturday, December 6 at
2:00 p.m., has been changed to
the same date at 10:00 a.m., so
as not to conflict with the
telecast of the Florida-FSU
football game.

Ray said that several en-
tries have already been signed
up for the parade, with several
more promised. Ray said he
felt this year's parade would
be better than last year's,
which saw one of the largest
parades in several years.
Ray urges all organizations,
churches, clubs, youth groups,
or others who plan to enter a
float in the parade to contact
him at the City Hall for

Need Permit to Cut Streets

The City Commission made
it official Tuesday night. It is
now illegal for any utility,
service or contractor to cut a
street in the city for burying or
removing services or for any
other reason without first
getting a permit from the City.
In the past, utilities serving
the City have been able to use
the utility easements along the
streets without further per-
mission, but a continuing
problem with improper or no
attempts made at patching
cuts in the street, led to the
ordinance which was passed
What really prompted the

passage of 'the ordinance was

Gulf County Commission
along the same lines as the
document approved by the
City Tuesday. The County
came up with the permit plan
to protect the large number of
recently re-surfaced and pav-
ed streets in the county. Under
the plan, the County will have
the last word as to whether or
not a street is cut, and if it is,

The City became concerned
when a construction company
began cutting newly repaved'
streets in Port St. Joe during
the past month, to bury
underground telephone cable
for the St. Joseph Telephone
and Telegraph Company.
The City had no ordinance
on the books to govern the
method of cutting or the
repairs to be made. With the
phone company's operation
franchise, the City really had
no rules or regulations allow-
ing or denying permission to
cut the streets.

Editorials and Opinions


Padlocks Becoming Best Selling Item In the Nation

We feel, because we live in a small place
where everybody knows everybody, that we
are living in a place which is free from crime
and we can relax on our security.
Mostly, that feeling is a sure one, but
actually, we can't be so sure that we do live in
a little cocoon of isolation from the world that
is tearing the throats of everyone who is
foolish enough to allow himself to have an
unguarded moment.
It's true; you can get out at night and take
you daily constitutional up the street, or
around the block or through the park, and be
reasonable sure nobody will mug you, nobody
will attack you, nobody will rape you, nobody
will slip a knife in your ribs or rob your home
while you are gone.
Actually we are pretty safe here in Port
St. Joe for the time being.
But when people will, just for the heck of
it, break windows out of public or unoccupied
buildings, steal flowers from the cemetery,
the street median or any other public place as
fast as they are planted, build a fire under an
old railroad engine on display and on which
the kids like to play, tear down solid doors to

gain entrance just to mess up a place, steal
guest books from the old cemetery and
deliberately try to destroy the headstone of the
man who brought yellow fever to old St.
Joseph; when people will do these things .
just for kicks can we be very far from
having to lock ourselves in at night?
You are just before telling us the police
department should catch some of these people

and make an example of them. We agree. The
police should catch some of them, even though
we are not going to be naive enough to expect
them to catch all the perpetrators. That's an
impossibility. With the number of vandalistic
cases which bless our community each and
every day, it does seem that the numbers
would cause one to get caught every now and

Catching isn't the thing, however. The
thing is that we have people in our midst who
have degenerated to the point where they have
no respect for public or private property other
than their own.
It's a pity that our nation and our
community should degenerate to the point
where the best selling item in the nation is a

County Farmers Have Helped Our Hunting

As time has progressed and our bones get
more brittle, we have begun to cut back on our
hunting and traipsing through the woods.
It's a pity, too, because it would seem to us
that hunting is even better than ever here in
Gulf County and has indications of getting
even better.
Like others, we thought when the farmers
began to clear the swamps for cattle ranching
and growing grains, the hunting would
disappear along with the game.
That isn't true.
With the clearing of some of the swamps,

more varieties of game are being attracted to
Gulf County and the farmers are providing
feed the existing game never had before.
The hunting is there if the people don't
abuse it.
One of the favorite hunting pastimes of the
sportsmen of this county is dove shooting.
There are probably more men who shoot at
doves than any other game species. In the
past, the dove hunter has had to travel to
Calhoun, Jackson or Washington counties to
do their hunting. Now, with the advent of MK
Ranches and FICO Farms here in Gulf

County, we have places to hunt and the land
owner is willing for people to hunt on their
This situation will continue for only so
long as the hunter doesn't take advantage of
that privilege by doing damage to the lands on
which he is a guest.
We appreciate the opportunity to hunt on
these lands and hope some schnook doesn't
ruin it for all the rest of us.
We all should be appreciative of the
hospitality shown us from the land owners to
help them police their property.

Dear Editor:
As we know our local
hospital here in Port St. Joe

* 'r

has a very adequate labora-
tory that can take care of most
of our needs when it comes to
laboratory work.
It is very sorrowfull that
some of us have to drive to
Panama City to another hos-
pital to have laboratory work
done because the doctor here
in Port St. Joe is not on the
medical staff. The doctor
here sends his patients to
Panama City to have labora-
tory work done and sends
some of his laboratory tests

off to another laboratory
which could be done here in
the local hospital very easily
and also the hospital could
benefit by it. This doctor is not
on the medical staff in Pan-
ama City either, but the
hospital in Panama City is very
helpful and eager to take care
of the laboratory work that is
requested by the doctor in
Port St. Joe.
I am one of those that has to
have laboratory work done

each month.
If the City of Port St. Joe has
to kick in $150,000.00 a year to
the hospital funds because of
financial difficulties it certain-
aly appears to me if the
hospital would accept lab-
oratory work from a local
doctor here this would ease
some of the financial pro-
blems they have.

Since Rev. Johnie and the Rever-

Rev. Dave sat in front of me at the
football game. After half-time he came

back up the stadium steps after visiting
the concession stand, with a styrofoam
cup in his hand. The cup was empty.
The first thing which came to my
mind was that Rev. Dave had also

taken up chewing Red Man and had
secured himself a spit cup.
When he got to the top of the

At Port St. Joe Garden Club

Port St. Joe Garden Club was one of the
best attended in recent memory. All
members and guests were intriqued by
the program of "Christmas Creativity"
featuring Mrs. Flora Blackman, owner

tions. These are the "in" thing for this
Christmas season. Using a straw mat
and designer foam, Mrs. Blackman
made a most attractive wall hanging
piece. Then she showed how the same
piece could be used as a table
decoration. This was done by laying it
flat and shifting the dried material
about. With several ladies standing
alongside her, Mrs. Blackman showed

step by step how to make those
beautiful bows that we all like to use at
Christmas time.
Mrs. M.P. Huie and Mrs. I.E. Nedley
were hostesses and presented two lucky
ladies with potted plants.
The feature of the business meeting
presided over by Mrs. M.P. Huie, Club
President, was the announcement of
plans for a very special Open House at

ember 7th, from two to five p.m. This

In our modern age, it is easy
to be misled, especially when
advertising and some sales
techniques can subtly in-
fluence even the wisest shop-
per. What is the consumer to
do? In plain terms, he should
get to know the dealer with
whom he does business.
A personal relationship
means trust and responsibil-
ity, and the result is that the
customer gets what he pays
for-no fancy bargains that
end up badly after the fine
print is examined, and no hard
sell tactics that often force
even the intelligent shopper
into a poor choice.
We have based our business
on these terms-trust and re-
sponsibility. Get to know us,
we are in the business of

inconvenience some people for

* Eagles Take to the Air

to Nip Sharks, 18-12

THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla. THURSDAY, NOV. 20, 1980 PAGE SEVEN

Port St. Joe's Sharks
couldn't cope with the blister-.
ing second half air attack by
the Wakulla War Eagles Fri-
day night, and lost one of the
better games of the season,
The Sharks made a few
changes in their line-up this
week, putting Ashley Abrams
at quarterback to gain ad-

vantage of his extra height
and moved Chris Adkison to,
end for his pass catching'
ability and defensive quick-
ness, all to good advantage.
Abrams move to the signal-
calling spot put an extra
quickness in the running at-
tack and Adkison hauled in a
38 yard pass to the Eagles'
seven yard line to set up the

Sharks second touchdown of
the evening.
The Eagles flew through the
air on the combination of
quarterback Mark Harrell to
his ends Reggie Howard and
Farrell Barwick, to pick up
the major portion of their
yardage. On the ground, the
Shark defense completely shut
off the running attack, allow-
ing the high-flying Eagles only
75 yards all night long.
The Eagles tried the ground
route during the first half, but
were able to pick up only one
first down in the first period.
The Sharks, while not able
to move at will against the
tough Eagles, still sustained a
56 yard drive in the first
period, which saw Rozelle
Jenkins and Ashley Abrams
move the ball down the field,
three and four yards at a time
to the Eagle four, where
Abrams slipped over for the
first score of the game. A
mix-up in the snap of the ball,
kept Alan Sisk from kicking
the extra point.
As the second period open-
ed, the Eagles put up a 77 yard
drive, mainly through the air
to put an answering six points
on the board. William Sapp
came around right end, break-
ing two tackles to pick up the
Eagles score on a five yard
run. The extra point kick went
wide and the score stood
knotted at 6-6 with 6:59
remaining in the half.
After two exchanges of the
football, the Sharks put on
their last scoring drive with'
2:40 left, and, sparked by the
38 yard pass to Chris Adkison,

and a 26 yard electrifying run
by Rozelle Jenkins, an excit-
ing 11 yard reverse run by
Stefon Sims, moved from their
own 14 yard line all the way up
the field to the goal line in
seven plays. Abrams carried
the ball over in a keeper from
the four yard line to give the
Sharks a 12-6 half time lead.
In the last half, it was all
Eagles in the scoring depart-
ment. Taking to the air,
quarterback Mark Harrell
first hit Alban Howard on an
11 yard toss into the end zone.
Again the kick was wide and
the score stood at 12-12.
With 2:45 left on the game
clock, Harrell went to Farrell
Barwick on a 50 yard home
run pass for the touchdown,
much like the one Georgia
pulled against Florida two
weeks ago. The toss came on
the fourth play of the series
after the Eagles had taken
over on their own 24 after a
Shark punt.
The Eagles had another
golden opportunity to put
points on the board when Alan
Sisk fumbled the snap on a
punt attempt deep in Shark
territory. Sisk picked up the
ball and ran out of bounds on
the Shark 36, where the Eagles
took over. But on second and
10, Barwick, who was superb
in his passing all night long,
had one picked off by Andy
Wilkerson to kill their scoring
The entire Shark team was
in on the defensive effort, with
every man on the team getting
at least one tackle. Tim
Stutzman, Chuck Stephens

Ashley Abrams dives across the goal line with the first touchdown of the game

Expects to Move Up In Congress

First District Congressman
Earl Hutto, following election
to his second term on the
November 4th general elec-
tion, has returned to Washing-
ton for the "lame duck

and Ashley Abrams led in
tackles with four each. Gene
Floore, Billy Merchant and
David Bray added three
Rozelle Jenkins led the
running attack with 85 yards,
Ashley Abrams had 40 yards
and Stefon Sims, 11.
The win by the Eagles made
them the District Champions
and will send them to Gaines-
ville next week to meet P.K.
Yonge in the first round of the
state play-offs.

"I am deeply humble and
grateful for the overwhelming
vote of .confidence, "said
Hutto. "It is an endorsement
of the hard work done by me

The federal government will
undergo a big change in
January with a new President
and a Republican Senate,
marking the first time the
Republicans have had control
of either body of congress in 25
years. But Hutto stated that he
will work with President-elect
Reagan for the good of the
"We. are Americans first
and Democrats and Republi-
cans after that," said Hutto.
"I will be supportive of the
President when I feel it is in
the best interest of the nation
and our District."
Hutto, a member of the

House Armed Services Com-
mittee, feels that he and the
new President are pretty close
on many issues,-particularly
national defense. Reagan, like
Hutto, believes that we must
strengthen our defense in
order to keep the peace and
maintain our freedoms.
Although the Republicans
have wrested control of the
Senate the Democrats will
still have the majority in the
House in the new Congress.
Hutto expects to move up
several seats in seniority on
the Armed Services Commit-
tee as well as the Merchant
Marine and Fisheries Com-
mittee. "These are great
committees which are excel-
lent for Northwest Florida,"

Gators Fallto Jackets, 28-14

The Chattahoochee Yellow
Jackets jumped off to a 14
point lead over Wewahitch-
ka's Gatorsin the first quarter
last Friday night and went on
to dump the Gators, 28-14.
After the 14 point splurge in
the first period, the Gators
played the Jackets on even
terms for the remainder of the
ball game, even though the
Gators were hampered with
several key injuries which put
the nucleus of their running
backs out of action.
The Jackets scored on a one
yard run by Arthur Johnson
and a 44 yard gallop by

Darrell Carroll in the first
The Gators came back in the
second period with seven
points on the board off a four
yard run by Harold Williams
and an extra point kicked by
Tim Taunton.
The Jackets answered the
Gator score in the second
stanza when Earnest Dawkins
tucked in a 35 yard pass from
James Jakes. The Jackets
passed for two extra points
and took a 22-7 lead into the
locker room with them at half
Both teams scored in the

third period, with the Gators
scoring on a 30 yard pass by
Taunton, who also kicked the
extra point for the Gator's
final score.
The Jackets scored on a 17
yard run by Ivory and the
Gators blocked the extra point
The Gators still picked up
112 yards, even without the
services of their premier
running back, Steve Strick-
In an attempt to put points
on the board, the Gators went
to the air and tossed 15 passes,
an offense the Gators have not

used much this year.
The Gators will close out
their season Friday night,
when they take to the road
again, to Greensboro.
The Gators are now 4-5 for
the season.

intendent, and Tommy Pitts,

followed by the pledge to the
The minutes of August 26,
1980 and September 2, 23, and
29, 1980, were read, approved,
and adopted.
The Chairman announced
the first business would be to
open the meeting as a public
hearing, pursuant to legal
*notice published according to
Vlaw, said hearing is in con-
junction with the Apalachee
Regional Planning Council
and Gulf County to plan and
accept a new Community
Development Block Grant.
The Chairman then intro-
duced Mr. Donald D. Johnson,
Economic Development Co-
ordinator, of the Apalachee
Regional Planning Council.
Mr. Johnson proceeded to
inform those present as to
requirement for filling an
application for Grant Dur-
ing a question and answer
period, Commissioner Gort-
man asked where the County
stood on a three stage grant
which included the restoration
of the second floor of the old
courthouse in Wewahitchka.
The answer was that the Local
Public Works Bill for that type
work has not been passed by
the Congress.
Commissioner Kennedy
questioned the possibility of
applying for a loan for water
and sewer 'for Williamsburg
Subdivision and Methodist Hill
in the Wewahitchka area. The
answer was that this can be
done.-Doris Schott asked if
grant funds include City pro-
jects in its application.-Doris
A Schott asked if grant funds
might be expended on the
purchase of e Old Beacon
Hill Lighthouse property to be
used as a public park. The
answer was this type project
was a very low priority.-E. L.
Flemming asked if housing
programs for north Port St.
Joe could be included in a
Block Grant. The answer was
the City of Port St. Joe would
determine this question in
filing its grant.
Mr. Johnson thanked those
taking part in this public
hearing and asked that writ-
ten comments be mailed to
him at P.O. Box 428, Blounts-
town. Florida 32424.
Mr. Steve Leitman, Apala-
chee Regional Planning Coun-
cil, discussed a proposed
resolution to reguest the Uni-
ted States Congress to amend
the existing authorization for
the federally maintained
Apalachicola River System.
After discussion, the resolu-
tion was introduced by Com-
missioner Kennedy, seconded
by Commissioner Tankersley,
and unanimously adopted.
The Resolution is on file in the
Clerk's office.
In discussing the 1980-81
fiscal year budget, which was
adopted using the exact bud-
get as the 1979-80 fiscal year,
to be used for the first three
months of the new year; the
Tax Collector and Property
Appraiser presented their
quarter requisitions for a
greater amount than one-
fourth of the budget now
adopted. After consideration,
V the Board approved payment
to the Tax Collector in the
amount of $19,719.62 and to the
Property Appraiser in the
amount of $16,627.00.
Mrs. Sally Malone appeared
before the Board and re-
quested that a lost plat of
Yon's Addition to Beacon Hill
be filed in the Offce of Clerk of
Circuit Court. She stated she
had presented a copy of this
same plat at a recent meeting
but was told it could not be
filed because it was not
signed. She said she adver-
tised, requesting anyone with
information as to the original
of said plat .to contact her;
that because it pays to adver-
tise, she now has an original
plat signed by S.E. Yon, the
subdivider, and also signed by
the Clerk of the Circuit Court,
J.R. Hunter; and the plat was
signed on November 2, 1936.
She then requested this plat be
filed. The Chairman requested
the Attorney to advise the
Board on this matter. The
Attorney advised that the plat
could not be filed as an official
record because it did not show
thatit has ever been presented
to the County Commissioners
or filing, nor did it show that
it was ever filed. He stated

the plat was signed by S.E.
Yon in a Certificate or Affi-
davit of Ownership as to the
land shown on the plat and

that J.R. Hunter, then Clerk of
the Circuit Court, signed a
Certificate of acknowledging
the fact that S.E. Yon was the
person that signed the owner-
ship certificate. He said the
plat included a Certificate of
Acceptance by the County
Conimissioner, which was un-
signed and it also included a
Certificate ot Endorsment for
the Clerk of Curcuit Court to
show the date, book, and page
allowed to file said plat in the
unofficial plat book; that the
plat is not accepted as an
official record for any pur-
pose, but is being filed only as
a reference such as other
unofficial plats and surveys
kept by the Clerks Office.
Mrs. Malone also requested
the Board to file a copy of
letter dated January 10, 1938,
from Lula I. Hunter, Deputy
Clerk, to Mrs. Virginia P.
Moore. (Letter recorded in
Official Record Book 83, Page
Mr. Bill McFarland asked
the Board what it intended to
do about the controversy as to
where the alley right of way
line is located that runs behind
his home property in Oak
Grove. Commissioner Ken-
nedy- stated that he and
Commissioner Gortman in-
spected this alleyway and
found the County had main-
tained it over the years and
the right of way lines ap-
peared to be in the same place
as they have been over. the
past years, but that they
cannot determine whether or
not the alley is in the exact
place where the dedicator
intended for it to be.--Mr.
Howard T. Neel said if the
alley is relocated according to
a recent survey his home and
fence will be within the alley
right of way. Mr. McFarland
asked where the landowners
would be if this question went
to litigation in the courts. The
Attorney advised that Florida
Law provided that adverse
possession can run against an,
individual ownership, but can-
not run against the State,
County, or a Municipality,
which means that a private
ownership stands to loose in
such cases.
Mr. Ollie Stutzman said he
,is the one that started this-
question, due to the fact his
survey indicates the lots he
purchased extended twelve
feet into what is now called the
alley; that all he is asking for
is what he purchased and it is
not his intention to hurt any
other owner in that area.
After discussion, the Board
said it has no intention of
changing the alley. Commis-
sioner Branch stated that this
does not mean that at some
future date the Board cannot
consider an application of
changing the alley. Commis-
sioner Branch asked why
north Port St. Joe cannot get a
housing project. The answer
was there is no land available.
Mr. David Langston, Direct-
or, CETA Program, discussed
Ceta employee Larry Baker,
whose contract time is run out
and should be terminated
under the Ceta regulations. He
reminded the Board that it
had urged him to keep this
employee on the Ceta Pro-
gram (assigned to the County
Road Department) until the
County's new budget came in,
at which time, he would be
given a permanent job with
the County Road Department;
that the County must now
issue a letter assuring that
this employee will be placed
on the County payroll on
January 1, 1981. Commis-
sioner Branch said it was his
understanding that the Board
said Mr. Baker would be
considered for the next open-
ing, but did not guarantee him

the next opening, because this
would be going against the
Board's policy in employing a
new person. There was a
motion by Commissioner Ken-
nedy, seconded by Commis-
sioner Gortman, that the Road
Department accept Larry
Baker from the Ceta Program
on January 1, 1981.-There was
a motion by Commissioner
Tankersley, seconded by Com-
missioner Gortman, to table
this question until October 17,
1980. Motion passed unani-
Mr. Bob Smith, Area Co-
ordinator, State Civil Defense,
discussed the appointment of

After consideration, there was
a motion by Commissioner
Gortman, seconded by Com-
msioner Kennedy, and it was
unanimously carried that
W.T. "Bill" Lamar be ap-
pointed to fill this position.
Mr. Jerry Gates introduced
Mr. Ted Cox, Division of Local
Resources Manager Depart-
ment of Administration, and
reminded the Board that it has
heretofore requested the State
to make a Comprehansive
position classification and pay
study for all County Commis-
sion employees. After dis-
cussing the services to be
performed by the Department
of Administration, there was a
motion by Commissioner
Gortman, seconded by Com-
missioner Branch, and it was
unanimously carried that a
resolution be passed, request-
ing the department to perform
this service for the county.The
resolution is on file in the
Clerk's office.
The Finance Officer re-
minded the Board that all Fire
Control District funds have
been collected in the amount
of $5,513.72 and are being held.
for the Commissioner's distri-
bution order. After considera-
tion, there was a motion by
Commissioner Branch, sec-
onded by Commissioner Gort-
man, and it was unanimously
carried, that these funds be
divided as follows: Y4 to the
City of Port St. Joe, /4 to
Highland View Fire Depart-
ment, 4 to Beaches Fire
Department, and 4 tothe
