Over 10,000 Acres go up in Smoke
Blazes Scorch Coun
"It's the worst fire I've ever
fought," was the response of
many -of the firefighters par-
ticipating in extinguishing the
major forest fires in Gulf
County over the past week.
According to Jerry Brooks,
District Forester, some 10,000
acres of forest lands were*
scorched in the two infernos.
Brooks said, "Rough terrain,
high winds and low humidity,
combining with the drought-
parched forest, were the con-
tributing factors to the fire."
The first fire, the largest of
the blazes, started up approx-
imately six miles northeast of
the White City fire tower, near
Circle J Ranch, on Tuesday. It
consumed some 8,000 acres
before it was brought under
The second fire began

miles east of the White City
fire tower, near Overstreet. It
left some 3,000 acres of char-
red woodlands behind it.
The second fire began-
Thursday approximately six
miles east of the White City
fire tower, behind Highland
View. It left some 2,000 acres
of charred woodlands behind
Both of the fires were rated
"Project" fires by the Divi-
sion of Forestry, meaning that
the fires were given first
priority for available equip-
ment and personnel from
other fire districts in the state.
In total, 40 additional person-
nel were called in to aid in
fighting the blazes.
The second fire was the one
that caused the greatest
alarm, threatening homes in
the White City area. It began
about 4:15 Thursday after-
noon, and whipped by high
winds it consumed 250 acres of
timber by nightfall.
With sunrise ,Friday, the
wind blew new life into the
fire. The blaze took a course
toward White City and didn't
let much get in its way. It
jumped the Intracoastal
Waterway twice as it burned
toward White City.
According to Forester
Brooks, the team of fire
ploughs had concentrated
their efforts on an area
southwest of White City, near
the dynamite docks. A group
of Forestry and St. Joe Paper
Co. ploughs had ploughed a
maze of fire breaks hoping to
contain, or turn the fire in that
Afterthe blaze jumiiped the
Intracoastal Waterway a wind
shift swept it off course and
around the recently ploughed
firebreaks. The wind shift sent

Local fire departments had
responded to aid in protecting
the homes located in the path
of the blaze. The White City,
Highland View, Beaches,
Mexico Beach and Wewahit-

volunteer units, were on hand.

that the local Board of County
Commissioners had no right to
impose a '30 day moratorium
on the issuance of building
permits for lots located on the
waterside of Highway 98 at St.
In the March 19th hearing,
Judge Turner issued a writ of
mandamus against the Couln-
ty, giving them five days to
issue a building permit to
Theodore Meadows of Albany,
Georgia, who filed the suit
against the County.
The local Board had intend-
ed on searching through
studies in the county's com-
prehensive plan, looking for
possible dangers to the public
lands that adjoined the pro-
perty in question.
In an earlier Board
meeting, the Commissioners
had issued a 30-day
moratorium on the issuance of
beach front building permits,
in an effort to detain Meadows
from beginning construction
on his beachfront property.
Meadows, in turn, filed suit
against the. Board over its
Judge Turner pointed out in
his ruling against the Board
that the Board had no right to
treat Meadows any differently
by placing a 30 day morator-
ium on his receipt of a building
permit, after he had already
met all the necessary re-
quirements for the permit.
Turner further stated that further stressed that the

City Board Takes Steps To Cure
The City Commission made
a move Monday night in hopes
of solving the seepage pro-
blem at the Wastewater Treat-
ment Plant. For as long as the
plant has been in operation
seepage through the dike sur-
rounding the plant's holding
pond has been a problem.
The City had hired an
engineering firm, Russell &
Axon, to study the problem.
They, in turn, made a recom-
mendation for repairs on the
dike wall which the study
showed would correct the
Problems at WWTP
Being reluctant to tackle the
repairs without knowing for
certain the proposal would
solve the problem the Com-
mission decided to repair a
test section of the dike wall.
They accepted the bid of Mc-
Cormick Contracting Co., Inc.
for $28,980 to reconstruct a 200'
test section of the dike.
If this works, the Board will
then continue with the propos-
ed solution to the problem.
Rod Westall, representing
Russell & Axon, addressed the
Board stating that his firm
had gone as far as it could on
its study of infiltration into
the City's sewer lines.
The next step would be
cleaning the sewage pipes and
televising the interior of them.
in an effort to determine ex-
actly where the leaks were in
the system. Westall asked the
Board for their permission to
do all the necessary paper
work and get it off to the En-
vironmental Protection Agen-
cy (EPA) for their approval.
The Board decided to postpone
their go ahead on the project
until a full Board representa-
tion was present.

Robert H. Newman, owner/
manager of Gulf Cable TV, ad-
dressed the Board soliciting
their approval of a $2.00 per

lands will be prosecuted ac-
cording to company officials.
The Board of County Commissioners
took action Tuesday night to insure
themselves the final word in beach con-
In response to a motion by Doug Bir-
mingham, the Board approved of tak-
ing the necessary steps to adopt an or-
dinance establishing a county set-back
The new ordinance would replace an
emergency order the Board had
previously adopted. The emergency
order and the proposed ordinance were
reenactments of the state's set-back
lines and included an area from the
Gulf County line on the west to Palm
The teeth in the county ordinance
would be that any variance request con-
cerning the set-back line would come to
the Board for approval. This would give
the Board legal authority to decide on
issuance of building permits in sen-
sitive Gulf County areas.
This action took place less than one
week after the County had a suit filed
against it by Theodore Meadows for
enacting a 30-day moratorium on the is-
suance of building permits. According
to Circuit Court Judge Fred Turner the
County had no right to prevent
Meadows from receiving a building
permit. Turner gave the Board five
days to issue Meadows a building per-
The Board had adopted the
moratorium on building permits in
hopes of not only stopping the beach
front building but also to buy time as
they attempted to come up with some
plan through the State to purchase the
much publicized "street end" lots at St.
The Department of Natural
Resources shot holes in that plan
though as Mark Proctor, attorney for
DNR, sent word of the bad news. The
Department had looked at three options
for purchase by the state. The first was
ruled out because the time to apply had
expired; the second was a 50/50 share
by the County and state, which had
earlier been turned down by the Board.
The last option was for the state to buy
lands for park and recreation areas, but
the road ends being scattered along the
beach instead of being one piece of pro-
perty ruled that out along with the
possibility of State funds with which to
purchase the property.
The question of spending County
money to help purchase the beach pro-
perty was given consideratonsideration as the
Board kicked around the thought of
having a referendum concerning the
matter, but no action was taken.
MOVE TO APPEAL RULING
Commissioner Branch thought the
Board should fight the problem at hand,
Meadows' building permit, one step fur-
ther. He moved to have the Board's at-
torney appeal Judge Turner's decision
forcing the County to issue Meadows a
Birmingham seconded the motion
and the floor was open. Money said that
the people he has talked with are oppos-
ed to spending taxpayers' money
fighting a law suit. Birmingham
countered, "It was obvious that
Meadows did not meet all the re-
quirements to receive a building per-.
Judge Turner had based his ruling for
the County to issue the permit on
Meadows having completed building
permit requirements prior to the coun-
ty's issuance of a 30 day moratorium on
beach property building- permits.
Turner stated in the hearing that since
Meadows had completed requirements
for the permit before the moratorium
was mandated by the County, he had
the legal right to receive the permit.
County Inspector Red Gunn verified
that Meadows had completed the
necessary requirements for the is-
suance of a permit.
Branch addressed Gunn as to
whether an old ordinance establishing a
10' setback from state road right-of-
way would be applicable. Gunn
responded by stating that he has a state
code to follow in the issuance of permits
and that Meadows had complied with it.
"The code requires me to apply local
zoning and county setback ordinances
but Gulf County does not have any,"
Gunn stated. He continued, "If there's a

County's Final Census Report Can Not be Correct
Gulf County's final census report contin-
ues to amaze us as to its inaccuracy and
obvious undercount, especially in the two
incorporated cities within the county.
We're not particularly disturbed that we
don't have 15,000 or 20,000 or even 30,000
* people in Gulf County. The only thing which
disturbs us is that we didn't get credit for the
people we do have. ,
The undercount should have been obvious
to the people making the count, also. It would
take a nose by nose count in the county to
convince us otherwise. If we had been an
enumerator and came up with the figures
which were reported, we would'have also
smelled a Gulf County citizen or two hidden in
the woodpile and we would have gone out and
looked him up and counted him too.
The census report shows there were 927
new homes built in Gulf County in the past 10
years. We believe this. We have never seen
building in the county like we have seen it in
the past 10 years. Almost every time one
would travel almost any road or street in the
county, there would be a new dwelling house
Lningo n u This annlies to th nrhban as well as
the suburban areas as well. Building a home

Then, on the other hand, the report shows
there are only 355 new people in the county to
live in these 927 new homes. Either all of the
new people in the county has almost three
homes each, or the arithmetic is off.
There is next to no vacant housing in
Gulf County at the present time and there
were next to no vacant homes in the county
when the census was taken.
We suspect even the housing count was'
wrong too, since there were several homes
under construction at the time the census was
taken, and when there is a home being built in
Gulf County, there is usually someone here
waiting to get into it. There is little to no
speculative building in Gulf County.
Like we say, the number of people who
pointing out was that at least one is needed
here on the Gulf to serve the needs of the
people who wish to use it for recreation.
Now, the DER, that gaggle of environ-
mentalists in Tallahassee, has stopped the
best chance we seem to have ever had to get a
Gulf-side landing by worrying that installa-
tion at the only site the Commission has been
able to secure for the landing, after years of
searching, will maybe do some sort of
imagined damage to some underwater grass
or cause a shovel full of fill to be spilled into
an adjoining marsh.

does bother us, is that an inaccurate count
costs the county money and costing the
county money means somebody is getting

back when the U.S. Army was using this same
space for bivouac and maneuvers across the
beach to St. Joseph Point?
If use of this site (Palm Point) in this
manner is of such danger to these environ-
mental concerns, why isn't the area now nude
of these underwater grasses? Why isn't that
adjoining marsh completely desecrated? The
Army put more use to that area in the short
time they were here than the landing would
probably see in a year of public use.

Dear Lord, Feb. 16, 1981,
you took back into your arms a
child so loved, that it broke so
many hearts. The anguish that
is felt by his parents is so
pitiful that it is hard to pretend
that they can go on.
Please help them find the'
strength to go on, for it will
help all of us. Take care of our
Adam; he was loved by all
who knew him and when he
left us, it seemed as if the
earth stopped spinning while a
little part of us died along with
Goodbye sweet baby,
Goodbye beautiful boy,
Goodbye dear Adam.
Your Great Grandmother,
Mrs. Jesse Anderson

A vote was then taken on the motion
to appeal Judge Turner's ruling. Money
and Gortman opposed the motion to ap-
peal, and Birmingham and Branch
voted -in favor. of appealing. OlCrman
Tankersley was forced to break the tie.
Before he voted he asked the Board's
attorney what the county's chances
were in winning an appeal. Attorney
Rish pointed out that Comm. Birm-
ingham had stressed the weakest part
of the ruling in his motion to appeal, but
in his opinion the chances of winning an
appeal were not the best. .
Tankersley then voted against the
motion, stating that he wanted; to
preserve the beaches but felt the Coun-
ty waited too late to fight Meadows. The
motion failed by a three to two vote.
The Board followed this with a motion
by Branch to require a 10' setback from
-the state right-of-way, with options for
variances. The motion passed with only

**" I' -
*********** ************** t
During the past few weeks I
have received numerous in-
quiries regarding President
Reagan's proposed cuts in
Social Security. In this week's
column, I would like to discuss
the main provisions of the
Reagan proposal as it relates to
the Social Security system.
Minimum Benefit One
main cot proposed by the Ad-
ministration' is elimination of
the so-called "minimum
benefit." According to present
law, retirees are eligible for
minimum payments of $122
per month, regardless of their
earnings history. The original
purpose of this provision, first
enacted in 1939 at a $10-per-
month level, was to increase
retirement income for those
with very low wage histories,
and for those whose employ-
merit was primarily before
Social Security covered their
work in the system's early
Since 1974, the Supplemen-
tal Security Income program
(SSI) has provided cash
assistance to such, retirees.. In
fact, according to ,the Ad-
ministration, elimination of
the minimum payment will be
offset, dollar for dollar, by the
amount of SSI assistance in-
dividuals would receive were
they not drawing the minimum
payments. The General Ac-
counting Office has estimated
cost savings in 1981 of $50
million, assuming the changes
take effect August. 1, 1981, and
$1 billion in 1982. For the years
1983-1986, the. estimated cost
savings have been set at $1.1
billion each year.
Student Benefits Drawing
heavy public opposition is the
proposed elimination of Social
Security payments to adult
students. The rationale of the
Reagan Administration is bas-
ed on the supposition that
payments to students fiom
Social Security funds are
unrelated to educational costs
or to need as well as
duplicating more appropriate
federal student assistance pro-
grams. Without Social Securi-
ty, low and middle income
adult students would be eligible
for federal student assistance
tailored to their educational
costs and needs.
According to the Ad-
ministration, student payments
'have grown from $165 million
in 1965 to over $2 billion in
1981. In addition, while the
number of adult students on
Social Security rose by only
25% in the past 10 years, the
cost of student payments 'went
up 240%. By eliminating
Social Security, for adult
students.- an estimated $7
billion would be added to the
Social Security trust funds by
1986, according to the General
The Reagan Administration
is attempting bold measures in
order to -achieve a balanced
budget. In the coming weeks,
the Congress will take a close,
careful look at the Administra-
tion's proposals in order to
protect those deserving in-
dividuals who may be harmed
by these, changes.

Using Natural Gas Water Heaters
Instead of Electric Water Heaters
The federal government now requires that manufacturers attach
energy operating costs labels to dishwashers and water heaters
produced after May 19, 1980. This now makes it possible for you
to comparison shop for annual operating costs, as well as price,
over the life of the appliance. Operating cost savings of the more
efficient appliances can often exceed purchase price. So ask
your appliance dealer to show you the new yellow labels and
figure out your Energy Savings, then determine your. best deal.

I admire your stand against
the use of marijuana; how-

step further. Although some
people may be debating the
effects of smoking marijuana,
research is showing an over-

Marijuana is fat soluble and
has a half-life of seven days,
meaning that it takes well
over a month to be excreted
from the body. Usage more
than once a month results in
accumulation and continued
exposure to the drug.
The .brain is effected in
monkeys and man. Rhesus
monkeys who smoke the e-
quivalent for their size of two
marijuana cigarettes a week
for 12 weeks develop degen-
eration of nerve cells. The

types because of its regular
reproductive capacity. It has
the ability to secrete an acid
which enables it to burrow

other non-edible materials to
get to edible food underneath.
The Formosan termite was
found last year in Hallandale,
Florida, and is believed to be
well established in the area.
Some termites even feed on
cultivated plants, including
vegetables. Koehler specu-
lates the termites have colon-
ies in old tree roots and wood
products decaying in the soil.
The insects apparently move
to other available food sup-

grates: synaptic vessicles in
the nerve endings which con-
tain the chemical for trans-
mitting information from one
cell to another degenerate,
finally there is deterioration of
the synaptic cleft which is the
physical connection between
one cell and the next. It is
likely that humans who are
heavy users, i.e., who smoke
one or more marijuana cig-
arrettes a day develop
atrophy (shrinkage) of the
brain as demonstrated by CAT
scans. Physiologically it is
common to see slowing of the

brain in moderate users, of
memory, judgement, abstract

is the direct result of brain

encountered by the average

To help keep your Form

taxing, lere are a few tax
tips for investors:
You can't deduct
capital losses if you buy
back the same security with-

after your loss sale. This tax
rule is called the "Wash Sale
Tax-wise investors know
they must hold a security
more than twelve months to
get a long-term capital gain.
You can deduct up
to $3,000 in capital losses
against your other income,
such as your salary, divi-
dends and interest income.
According to experts at the
investment firm of Bache
Halsey Stuart Shields, under-
standing this and other tax
laws can help you plan the
best investment strategy.
You can "roll over"

Sperm are abnormal, having
unusual forms and decreased
motility. 20 percent of young
adult males develop im-
potence within five years from
smoking marijuana. Primate
females, such as humans,
have a fixed number of eggs in
each ovary at birth which they
carry through life. The
maturation and fertilization of
these eggs results in their off-
spring. Rhesus monkeys ex-
posed to moderate marijuana
usage develop visible damage.
to these eggs with some de-
generating and others having
chromosome breaks. The
spontaneous abortion rate,
which is a manifestation of
severe developmental dis-
orders, increases from 12 per-
cent to 44 percent. Of those
infants that are carried to
term, many are hyperactive,
have decreased learning
ability as well as a smaller
head and heart for their body
size. Similar problems appear
applicable to humans and are
likely to occur long after
marijuana usage is stopped.
The immune system, which
is one of the body's natural
defenses against cancer and
infection, is imparied to the
same degree as that which
occurs in patients who require
immunosuppressants to pre-
vent rejection of organ trans-
plants. The use of immuno-
suppressants, which may be
life saving for the patient
receiving an organ transplant,
also carries with it an 80-times
increased incidence of cancer
because of impairment of the
-body defenses. This same
80-times increase in cancer is
likely to apply to humans
A marijuana cigarette is 16
times as damaging to the res-
piratory system as smoking
one cigarette containing
tobacco. The destruction of
lung tissue and the precancer-
ous changes to cells is the
same type as that resulting
from tobacco. Tobacco results
in a 300-times increase in the
incidence of lung cancer; it is

five-times increase in the
incidence of heart attack and
stroke, and the likelihood of
each attack resulting in
severe disability or death is
increased a similar degree.
Marijuana is commonly
adulterated with the hallucin-
ogen angel dust (phencycli-
dine). This is a colorless,
odorless, tasteless, very
potent, inexpensive, easily
produced hallucinogen which
is illegally made in every city
in this country. It is used to
increase the incidence of drug
dependency and therefore to
increase the need for cus-
tomers to buy the product. Ten
percent to 90 percent of all the
marijuana in the United
States is adulterated with
angel dust. Angel dust alters
perception of reality, and can
result in a severe chemical
alteration of one's personality.
It results in a chemically
induced psychosis with
bizarre, often violent and
destructive behavior which is
no doubt responsible for the
mass murders and other acts
of violence that so commonly
are reported by our news
It appears that marijuana in
its long term effect
may be more dangerous than
the "harder" narcotics such
as cocaine and heroin, which
most people fear because of
the addiction, respiratory de-
pression and sudden death
which often accompany their
usage. Ideally, all "recrea-
tional" drugs should be avoid-
ed. The risks of narcotics,
hallucinogens such as angel
dust and tobacco have been
described. Sedatives and
tranquilizers such as
Quaaludes and Valium result
in drug dependency, depres-
