City, Corps, Discuss Harbor Dredging

City Must Come Up with Alternate Upland Spoil Site

With warnings from Alton Colvin and Al Peterson of the
U.S. Corps of Engineers that Port St. Joe might lose its
harbor if the current effort to dredge the harbor and turning
basin back to project depth are not accomplished, the City of
Port St. Joe agreed to actively pursue location of an alternate
upland site to place material dredged from the harbor area.

Colvin told the Commission Tuesday morning in a special
meeting that the infiltration in the harbor and turning basin
has lessened the water depth to the point where continued
shipping into the port could become dangerous for shippers,
discouraging their use of the harbor. "This could reduce your
traffic to the point where the harbor could be declared
inactive and no more money spent on it".

What the Corps of Engineers was after in their visit here
Tuesday was approximately 140 acres of uplands where spoil
from the harbor maintenance dredging could be placed for
the next 50 years. "We're going to make a strong pitch to use
the old bird island spoil site as our primary choice, but we
must also have an upland alternate site when we make our
. presentation to the State Department of Environmental
Regulation for our dredging permit", Colvin said.
The Corps representative said plans are now to ask for
the island site as a spoil area with plans to build dunes and a
dike on the water side of the island and create a marshland
on the land side of what was formerly a bird nesting place.
"We believe this will protect the island and serve for more

shore protection", Colvin said. The engineer said the method
had been used to dig a channel at Two Mile near Apalachicola
in recent years and the dredged island has become thick with
grasses and provided an acceptable answer to dredging
problems in the area as far as DER is concerned.
"I don't know if we will be able to sell this plan again,

"If this harbor work isn't done,
Port St. Joe stands a chance to lose
its harbor"
-Alton Colvin,

U.S. Corps of Engineers

even though we have used it very successfully at several
Colvin said the Corps had several alternative sites which
have been used in the past in areas in the bay, "But I don't
think we have a prayer of a chance of being able to use these
sites on this project. There is too much organic material to be
removed at this dredging, even though we won't be bothered
with this problem in the future."
With the Corps wanting to use the bird island area for
spoil from the project, the meeting Tuesday was held to
decide upon what upland alternate site would be proposed as
required by the DER. Peterson told the group some 1,693,000
yards of material would be removed in the approved project,
mostly coming from the north channel near the harbor
Colvin then suggested a site east of Basic Magnesia on
the north side of the Gulf County Canal as a proposed upland
site. He said the location would be away from lowlands, out of
the bounds of current spoil sites for use by canal dredging
and easily accessible for pipeline dredging. "It won't be the
most economical way to go, but we can live with the expense
of pumping the spoil to this site", Colvin said.
Robert Nedley, representing St. Joe Paper Company,
was present at the Tuesday meeting and said he would check

with the Paper Company people' about using the site as a spoil
area. If Nedley's reply is favorable the City, as the
sponsoring agent for the dredgil ig project, will present it as
an alternate site to the Corps. Th t Corps will, in turn, present
the site to the DER for approval,k if their primary site is not
Colvin said the Corps would mat 'e a number of proposals
to DER in an effort to obtain a dred iging permit. "First we
will go for bird island, the best and logical place to put the
material; then we will ask for hoppe i dredging to past spoil
sites in open water in the bay; then we will go for the upland
Congressman Earl Hutto has been successful in securing
approval to spend up to $1,228,000 on thit bay improvements
in the current budget which will be effe ctive until October,
1981. Colvin told the group present Tuesda, y the Congressman
has been successful in securing the funding&, in such a manner
that if it is impossible to get the work done (, during the current
year, the funds may be carried over into the next budget
year. "Not all projects get this type approve> al", Colvin said.
Colvin's revelation of this bile of inforn, ration settled a
concern local interests have had about the prt ject ever since
it was approved. It was the feeling by local in 'terests that if
the project wasn't started by October, 1981, the funding
would be lost.
The engineer representative told the Commi ssion that it
would take at least three months for preliminary work to be
finished so the Corps could go to the DER for dredging
permit. How long granting of the permit would take was
Legally, it is the City's responsibility to se 2ure the
dredge spoil sites for the project, since the Cit)' is the
sponsoring agent for having the work done. St. Jioe' Paper
Company is to advise the City within a week or two 'whether
or not the chosen upland site could be made avail abl e. The
City would then notify the Corps of Engineers o'f the
availability and the work would then proceed from there,
with inspections of the site by the Corps and drawing up' the
permit requests.
The key matter which came out of the meeting se .emed' to
be that Port St. Joe could kiss its harbor good-byie if this
current attempt at bringing the harbor back up to project
depths is not successful.

Retirees Honored Friday

By the Courthouse Gang

Ending 72 Years of Service to County

Gulf County will be losing
72 years of experience and
know-how the end of De-
cember, when three offi-
cers step down in retire-
ment at the courthouse.
The county lost an addi-
tional 47 years of exper-
ience earlier this year,
when Property Appraiser
Samuel A. Patrick died
while in office.
Hanging up their door
keys to the courthouse will
be Clerk of the Court,
George Y. Core, who has
been Clerk of the Court for
the past 32 years; Harland
0. Pridgeon, who has been
Tax Collector for the past
28 yeais and Mrs. Dessie
Lee Parker, who has serv-
ed as Elections Supervisor
for the past 12 years.'
The trio of public offi-
cials was honored by their
fellow workers in the court-
house last Friday after-
noon, with a dinner held in
the upstairs hallway.
- The employees had each
cooked up a dish and
brought it to the dinner
until the table fairly groan-
ed from its weight. After
the dinner, -the diners were
the ones who groaned,
through ecstasy.
Kind words were said
about the retirees by Jerry
Gates, Mildred Jones and
Inell Stutzman. Joyce Wil-
liams eulogized Patrick,
who would have been one of
the honorees, had he lived.
Gates described Core as
"a man of love and pa-
tience". Mrs. Jones said
Mrs. Parker had been a joy
to work with. Mrs. Stutz-
man recognized that Prid-
geon had once served as
president of the Florida
association of tax collec-
tors. Mrs. Williams said of

Patrick, "To him, they
were all fine people."
It's normal to remember
the past at such a gather-
ing, and Core recalled the
past in the manner in which
he moved up to the office he
is now retiring from. He
noted that he was elected in
1948, when the county's
first Clerk of the Court, Joe
Hunter had announced his
retirement. Hunter retired
a few days after the
election, rather than wait
until the end of the term.
Core was in New York on
vacation and had to be
called home to assume the

duties of Clerk. He said
that in all those years, he
has been opposed only once
for re-election.
Mrs. Parker said she had
enjoyed her tenure as
Supervisor of Elections and
said she was now going to
take several trips which
had been arranged by her
children "and do a lot of
Pridgeon recalled the
formation of the county,
stating that on July 7, 1925,
240 cast votes in favor and
four voted against Gulf
County being carved out of
Calhoun County.
"The old courthouse was
finished and dedicated in

1926 and the new building
was finished and dedicated
in 1968", Pridgeon said,
"and I was there to see
them both dedicated."
Pridgeon pointed out he
was a very young boy when
the courthouse in Wewa-
hitchka was dedicated.
Pridgeon succeeded his
father to the office he is
now retiring from, 28 years
ago. His father had been
re-elected to office, but
died before his new term
started. Pridgeon's mother
was named to the office for
a few weeks, until Pridgeon
could be appointed to serve
the term. He has been
re-elected since that time.

City Meeting WithEPA

Set for Thursday, Dec. 11

To Discuss Wastewater Plant Operation

The City Commission will be
meeting with the Environ-
mental Protection Agency in
Atlanta on Thursday, Decem-
ber 11, to discuss matters
pertaining to the Wastewater
Treatment Plant.
The EPA and the City are
concerned with the high
amount of suspended solids
which the plant is emptying
into the Gulf County Canal
from the treatment plant.
Recently, the plant has
been running over its limits
frequently and up to its limits
regularly in suspended solids
emissions and the EPA is
calling the City to an account-
ing of the matter.
Florida's Department of En-
vironmental Regulation agen-
cy people have suggested the
local plant's limits established
by EPA is too stringent and
should be relaxed some. Or-
dinarily, Florida's emission
limits and controls are tighter
than those of EPA.
The plant is well within
design for suspended solids
going into the treatment sys-
tem, but emissions have
drawn the attention of EPA
to a possible problem.
The plant has been a source
of problem to the Commission
since it was built, on the
approval of EPA and to their
standards. Over the past six
years of operation, most of the
problem areas have been
corrected by the City, but still
the EPA has insisted that an
engineering study of the
plant's operation be made to
see where any problems lie
and what it will take to correct
The engineering study is
scheduled to be completed in
January, and the City is going
to approach EPA with the idea
of waiting until the study is
complete and the report filed
on findings before the City is
asked to take any steps by
The plant is allowed to
receive 127,050 pounds, dry
weight, of suspended solids a
day and emit 12,810 pounds
per day at full operation.
Presently, the plant is re-

ceiving around 90,000 pounds
per day and putting out from
12,000 to 14,000 pounds per

This is the ratio which has
EPA, and the City worried.
Presently, the City's re-.
newal of their operating per-

mit is on hold until tWe
problem is resolved. If it
continues, the City could face
stiff fines from EPA.

Maddox said the ideal spot

question when he said: "Have you ever
wondered why God has favored us above the

A potent question and one which needs
consideration by Americans who feel they are
so put upon during these days just because
their gasoline and heating oil has gone up to
$1.25 a gallon.
We're all pretty familiar with Mr.
Thompson's statistics about the wealth and
largess of this nation and its people. Most of us
realize that the poorest of Americans are still
much better off in worldly goods and comfort
than a great number of people in the so-called
undeveloped world. We could almost say that
our poorest are better off than most of the
people in the world:

When we read Mr. Thompson's statistics,
something hit us which was akin to a thought.
Here we are a nation of six percent of the
world's people consuming around 60 percent
of the world's production and with nearly 60
percent of the entire world's production... in
spite of our heavy consumption of imported
goods, fuels and raw products.
Even with all this, we have one of the
highest rates of unemployment in modern
times. If we have this rate of unemployment
with our production and consumption records,
think of how many people cannot find a way to
make a living in the remaining 94 percent of
the world's population who produce the other
40 percent of the world's goods.
We have cause to be the only nation on
earth which observes such a holiday as

it, even though it has been a
spoil site for years and
Maddox pointed out that
dredging in this area is
decreasing because of permit
and other restraints. "We're
going to have to fight to keep
and maintain a port in this
atmosphere", Maddox said.

The Gas


Gas: America's Best

Energy Buy

As we weigh America's future energy alter-
natives, consider this fact: Although all
energy costs are rising, gas for the residen-
tial and commercial markets will continue
to maintain its significant cost advantage
compared to oil and electricity.
This gas advantage is due in large part to
the efficiency of a continent-wide pipeline
network-a million-mile transmission and
distribution system that delivers gas to
users without costly refining or transfor-
mation processes.
Potential future supplies of this environ-
mentally superior energy are large enough

to sustain production of conventional
natural gas as far as into the 21st century.
Delivering more energy for less isn't the
only reason the gas option makes so much
sense. Gas also has the advantage when it
comes to factors less visible to the
consumers: Capital efficiency, effects on
employment and the economy, environmen-
tal considerations and water requirements.
The facts are clear. Clean, efficient gas
energy is America's best energy buy today
and tomorrow. It's an option we cannot
afford to ignore.

field, approved a program for
rewiring utility lines to Wewa-

tion, they agreed to relight the

THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla. THURSDAY, NOV. 27, 1980


Sharks Dump Fla. High,

16-0, In Season's Finale

Port St. Joe's Sharks went
out a winner Friday night, but
in doing so, they didn't man-
age to excite their home-town
fans very much in the season
The Sharks put only two
touchdowns on the scoreboard
and threw up a stout defense
which held the Florida High
-Demons to only 31 total yards
of offense in dumping the
Demons, 16-0 in the Sharks
homecoming as well as final
game of the season.
The Sharks scored on their
first possession of the football
in the second period on a
one-yard plunge by Chuck
Stephens and with only 15
seconds left on the clock in the
last period, when Ashley Ab-
rams capped a good perform-
ance for the night by sneaking
in from the one yard line.
t TheSharks surprised every-
one, including their own fans,
by going for two points on both
conversion attempts and mak-
ing good on their attempts. In
the second period, Chris Adki-
,son passed to Abrams in the
end zone for the two extra
points. In the last quarter,
Adkison handed the ball off to

Abrams, who tossed to Alt-
staetter in the end zone for the
two extra points.
The Sharks had scored on
their second possession in the
first stanza, when Abrams
fielded a Demon punt on the 37
yard line and came up the
middle all the way to the end
zone. The referee said a Shark
threw an illegal block and
called the score back.
Other than these two flashes
of offensive spirit, the Sharks
seemed to be content just to sit
on their lead and put up an
inpenetrable wall of defense
against the Demons. And
defend they did, as the Dem-
ons only set foot in the Shark
side of the field twice in the
entire game. It was way up
into the last third of the second
period before the Demons
crossed the 50 and they stayed
three yards inside the Shark
side of the field for only one
play before Richard Parker,
Gene Floore and Greg Cannon
sacked the Demon quarter-
back on two successive plays.
The Demons were in Shark
territory again in the middle
of the third period on a 10 yard
Dan Winchester to Scott

James pass which put the ball
on the Shark 42. Three plays
later, Winchester went to the
air again and Andy Wilkinson
picked it off at the Shark 24.
About the only thing the
Demons did right was to
contain Rozelle Jenkins. For
about the first time this year,
Jenkins failed to gain the most
yards in the game for the
Sharks, holding him to only 63
yards gained. Two Jenkins
runs of 17 and 23 yards set up
the ball on the one yard line

for the Sharks' first TD of the
While the Demons were
concentrating on Jenkins, Ab-
rams and Chuck Stephens
were picking up chunks of
yards in the Shark attack,
with Abrams winding up with
78 yards in 22 carries.
Abrams, David Bray, Chris
Adkison, Richard Parker,
Greg Cannon, Patrick May,
Gene Floore, Jake Tankers-
ley, Stephens and Stefon Sims
led the Shark defense, tack-

ling in swarms.
Wilkinson intercepted a
Demon pass, David Bray and
Kip Altstaetter each recover-
ed a Demon fumble.

Game Commission Will

Relax New Shot Rulding

reported steel shot shortage
statewide, the Game and
Fresh Water Fish Commission
has announce' a change in
duck hunting regulations for
the 19W0-81 waterfowl season.
Because of a critical short-
age of 20-gauge, 3" magnum
steel shot shells available in

the state plus the fact that
manufacturers are not pro-
ducing steel shot in 16-gauge
size, the Commission and
federal officials will not en-
force the requirement for steel
shot in any guage but 12. This
will allow those hunters pos-
sessing 16 and 20 gauge to
participate in the season
which is slated to open next
"We have received reports
from all area rs the state
that 20-gauge shells are not
available for waterfowl hun-
ters" said Col. Robert M.
Brantly, executive director of
the Commission.
"This scarcity is apparently
due to the reluctance or
inability of some ammunition
manufacturers to produce
the needed shells and possibly
also because of the uncer-
tainty or lack of knowledge
among retailers on quantities
of steel shot to stock.
"Rather than penalize our

for steel shot in all gauges will
most likely be enforced.
"Although the use of steel
shot in all gauges while
waterfowl hunting in certain
areas of the state is biologic-
ally sound for protection of the
resource, realistically the
manufacturers of the shells
and the hunters have not had
sufficient time to adjust since
the all-gauge requirement was
adopted in August," he said.
Areas of the state in which
steel shot will be required in 12
gauge include that portion of
Brevard County east of 1-95;
Osceola, Broward, Dade and
Glades counties; Leon County
(exclusive of Lake Talquin
and the Ochlockonee River);
Lake Miccosukee in Leon and
Jeferson counties; and Or-
ange Lake and Lochloosa
Lake in ALachua County.
