MRS. JEAN ETHERIDGE
Jean Etheridge plays the fiddle for
her own enjoyment and she plays by ear.
Last week end, she combined her,
enjoyment with a little competition in
Panama City and came home with a first
place ranking'in the old time fiddlers
convention, sponsored in the Panama City
Municipal Auditoriam. last Friday and
Saturday nights by the Panama City
Mrs. Etheridge had four other fiddlers
competing with her for the title.
Playing the fiddle has been in Jean's
family for years. She said her father
taught her to play when she was just a
little girl. When she was.about 12 years of
age, she quit and started again about five
years ago. She apparently didn't forget
much in the interim..
Mrs. Etheridge says she can't read
music, so when she hears a piece she
would like to learn to play, she gets a tape
of the tune and plays it until she knows the
tune. Then she picks up her fiddle and
saws away at the tune until she gets it just
like she wants it.
"I just play for the fun of it", Jean
Mrs. Etheridge wasn't the only Port
St. Joe product in the contest last week
end. Eddie McFarland and his "Cypress
Creek Band" a blue grass group which
plays regularly in the Tallahassee area,
won top honors in the bluegrass band
McFarland and his band have per-
formed once here in the Port St. Joe area,
when they played for the grand opening of
a business owned by Perry McFarland,
Eddie's cousin, in the fall of last year.

To Grant Industry Tax Consessions
Asks for Permission
The City of Port St. Joe will go to the polls on
May 26 to decide whether or not to give the City
Commission the authority to reduce or abolish city
ad valorem taxes for a period of up to five years
for a new industry which plans to locate or expand
in Port St. Joe.
The referendum is a companion measure to
the one proposed by Gulf County, asking for the
same authority for the County Commissioners
sometime during the next 90 days.
The City of Port St. Joe is going ahead with its
question on May 26, since this is the date for the
second primary of the municipal election
The Port St. Joe City Com-
mission decided Tuesday
night to proceed with the work
of repairing a water well
which collapsed deep inside its
interiors and get it back into
One water well collapsed

bad case of iron bacteria,
making it unusable to supply
potable water at the present
The two wells being out of
business, leaves the City with
but one producing well and a
supplement of water from the
St. Joe Paper Company canal.
Engineers and the North-
west Florida Water Manage-
ment District have both
agreed the deep well collapsed
in a clay collar sore 324.to'334
feet below the ground. The
steel casing in the well goes
down to only 225 feet. Engin-
eers and the Water Manage-
ment District also agree that
the collapsing deep well was
instrumental in causing the
problems with the adjacent
Tuesday night, the City
agreed to go ahead with
suggested plans to place a new
pipe casing inside the present
casing of the deep well,
drilling it deeper and prepar-
ing a new water pocket at the
bottom of the shaft. Estimated
cost of the work is around
The City has a firm bid of
$33,315 for the project, which
the engineers and Water Man-
agement people say is a good
bid. Before the project is
definitely contracted, the City
Commission will get several
other quotations on the job. '
The decision to be made by
the Commission now is where
to get the money to pay for the
job. While the City budgets for
contingencies, theer were no
preparations made in the
Water Department for such a
sizeable contingency as this

County has no regular scheduled election this
year, so must go through the procedure of setting
Approval by the voters will not automatically
grant tax exemption or tax relief for five years for
any new industry which might move into Port St.
Joe. The measure will allow the Commission to
decide on an individual basis whether or not an
industrial prospect or expansion is worthy of
enticement by a tax break. The tax breaks are now
allowed by the Florida Constitution.
George G. Tapper, chairman of the Port St.
Joe Port Authority, had made a request to the City
Commission recently, asking the Commission to
call for and set up an election to provide the
authority to allow the ad valorem tax breaks.
Tapper said the move is needed to give the Port
Authority something to offer as an enticement for
firms the Port Authority is trying to line up to
become a customer or a service industry for a new
port to be built here.
Tapper said approval of the question in a
referendum would put Gulf County and Port St.
Joe in a good position toward attracting new
-industry to the city and county.
City Qualification Ends
Qualification books closed for candidates seeking
election to the City Commission in the May primaries at 5:00
p.m., yesterday afternoon.
The Star went to press before the qualification books
were closed, but at noon yesterday, only one of the four seats
to be elected in May had opposition. In the Group Four
position, to select a candidate to serve the remaining one
year of the term of the late John Robert Smith,' three
candidates have paid their qualification fees. Seeking
election to the post are Alton Fennell, David Horton and
Nathan Peters, Jr. Peters was a candidate for the position a
year ago, against Smith.
Mayor Frank Pate and Commissioner Wesley R.
Ramsey had no opposition at noon yesterday, but one other
position on the Board saw a change in faces.
Commissioner Tom S. Coldewey, veteran commissioner,
decided this week not to seek re-election. Coldewey said his
duties as a Trustee of the duPont Foundation are taking so
much of his time, he can't take care of the City's business as
he thought he should. Coldewey has been a valuable member
of the Commission during his tenure on the Board and has
had some important input for the several tough decisions
which had to be made in the past. ,
Qualifying Tuesday for Coldewey's position on the Board
was Bill Fleming. Fleming has never sought public office in
the City before. He is an employee of St. Joe Paper Company
and has lived in Port St. Joe for many years.
In the one competitive race, Peters has been a City
candidate before, but Fennell and Horton are getting into city
politics for the first time. Fennell is an employee of St. Joe
Paper Company and has been an active member in North
Port St. Joe civic affairs for many years.
Horton is an employee of Apalachicola Northern
Railroad and is a native of White City. For the past several
years, he has been very active with the Port St. Joe squad of
the Gulf County Volunteer Ambulance Service.
Vietnam Veterans to Get Recognition Sunday
Sunday will be National Day of Recognition for an
,veterans of the Vietnam War era throughout Gulf County.
Monday of this week, Mayor Faye Cox, of Wewahitchka,
County Commission Chairman James Tankersley and Port
St. Joe Mayor Frank Pate gathered to sign a companion
proclamation declaring Sunday as a day of recognition for
Looking on as the proclamation was signed was Rev.
Earnest Barr, president of the Port St. Joe Ministerial
Association and Fred Kleeb, Veterans Service Officer for the
County. Rev. Barr said all pastors throughout the county will
be recognizing the special veterans and their need for
commendation for their services to their country during
church services Sunday morning.
The proclamation signed by the three heads of
government in Gulf County can be seen reproduced on the
editorial page of this week's issue of The Star.

Both Gulf and Calhoun counties have
asked Representative Leonard Hall to abolish
the Dead Lakes Water Management Commis-
sion and turn the responsibility over to the two
Commission boards to appoint portions of
their membership to direct the future of the
famous fishing spot.
The old Water Management committee
was responsible for the program which
constructed the dam at the south end of the
lakes and operates the fishing permit program
which is paying off the expense of the dam and
-:the draw-down structure.

S have lost interest in the management of the
lakes. This is why the two Commission boards
are wanting to take over the operation in order
to maintain some sort of an on-going
S management program.
Also in recent years, water weeds have
taken over the lakes. Some say this is because
the natural current of the lakes has been
curtailed to the point where the natural flow of
the lakes won't keep the weeds washed out.

movement to remove the dam at the end of the

We have no objections to the two
Commission boards assuming the responsibil-
ity for operation of the lakes. We do think it
would be a mistake to remove the dam at this
point. It took a lot of work on the part of a lot of
people to get the dam built. It also took a lot of
money to construct the dam and the
We would not favor removing the dam

Proponents of removing the dam claim it
will allow the fish to go back and forth into the
lake freely and will enhance the bedding
activities in the lake and increase the fishing.
If it comes down to a serious consideration
of removing the dam, we think it would be
time well spent to simply open the draw-down
structure and leave it open all the time to see
what happens with a natural rise and fall of
the lakes. If the lakes improve in their
recreation posture, then take out the dam.
We wouldn't go along with a removal of
the dam to see if it would cure the problem of

Has Senator Hawkins Forgotten Campaign Promise?
Senator Paula Hawkins has effectively
ruled out a large portion of the people of
Florida from having some representation in
the selection of prospective federal judges to
serve the people of Florida. ,
Recently, Senator Hawkins named a
five-member committee to screen prospective
federal judges behind closed doors. In so
doing, she cut Florida's Senator Lawton Chiles
out of the selection action.
Senator Chiles also represents the people
of Florida. People voted for Senator Chiles to
look after their interests just as they did

have the final word on who is to be selected to
serve all of Florida.
This isn't the first time Senator Hawkins
has stumped her toe since being elected and
we feel she will do so again in the future. After

People are slobs and inconsiderate.
It's a marvel to me more property
owners haven't followed suit and closed
their property for use by the general
It's a mystery to me why more
property owners don't do this in Gulf
County as well. There's hardly a public
gathering place in the county where one
can't find bushels of garbage and
debris, fences torn down, facilities
damaged, flowers and shrubs knocked
down by vehicles, etc.
That is also one of the main reasons
why it is now impossible to hunt on just
any vacant land one can find. The
people who have used the land in the
past have been such poor stewards of
what belonged to somebody else, the
owners have just gotten tired of it and
locked the gate.
Gulf County tries to maintain a
park at the end of Road 22 near
Wewahitchka on the banks of the
Apalachicola River. If the park is kept
up, it takes a visit every day by county
employees to do things like unstop the
plumbing, replace stolen light bulbs,
replace torn up fixtures, carry off
garbage dumped on the ground, etc.
People just don't care how they treat
these facilities which have been fur-
nished for their enjoyment.
There are numerous places in Gulf
County people can use for recreation,
but their number will begin to dwindle
if the people don't become a little bit
more civilized and realize they are a
guest of the property owner.

Named Annual DAR Good Citizens
The April meeting of the St.
Joseph Bay Chapter
Daughters of the American
Revolution, held Wednesday,
April 15, was the last meeting
to be held at the Garden
Center before the summer re-
The May meeting is sch-
eduled for May 20 at the home
of Mrs. W.O. Cathey, Jr., at
Mexico Beach. The group will
meet at 5:30 p.m. for a
covered dish supper, after
which the Chapter will recess
until October when the 1981-82
year will begin.
. April is always DAR Good
Citizenship Month, and this
meeting is one of the most
teresting and enjoyable of
the year. Following the reg-
ular Ritual, led by Mrs. Brown
and Mrs. Mark Tomlinson,
Chaplain, Mrs. V.H. Hoffman,
Jr., Chairman of DAR Good
Citizens and program chair-
man for the day, was present-
ed by Mrs. Eda Ruth Taylor,
Vice-Regent, to explain the
purpose of the committee and
its accomplishments, using
the title, "Perpetuating the
Spirit of Good Citizenship in
our Schools". '
To develop this theme, two
outstanding young people had
been selected as DAR Good
Citizens, Lisa Ray of Port St.
Joe High School, daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. Al Ray, and
Calvin Dean from Wewa-
hitchka High School, two very
busy young people, in school,
in church, and in community,
both concerned with activities
that develop character and'
leadership and promotes love
of God and country.
Mrs. Hoffman presented
Lisa Ray, included in "Who's
Who Among American High
School Student," excerpts
from the splendid essay she
had written. Beginning with
early days in American, Lisa
shared many interesting bits
of history down through the
years Among other things she
mentioned Lincoln and his
desire for "A New Burst of
Freedom". She urged support
for our new president and
backing for today's space
Calvin Dean, also involved
in sports, in gardening and
livestock, emphasized Patriot-
ism. He discussed historical
events, democracy, and dwelt
on the freedoms of America
and the Articles of Confed-
eration. He said "The United
States means people drawn
together," and that we should
take more interest in our
government, that instead of
criticizing, work together to-
ward making things better.
Mrs. Hoffman presented
Lisa and Calvin with the DAR
Award, including certificates
and pins. The mothers, Mrs.
Ray and Mrs. Dean, were
given the happy privilege of
pinning the young people.
In the business session the
members voted to buy the new
edition of the book, "Ameri-
can Patriots," to be placed on
the Geneological Shelf in the
library, and Mrs. Browne
announced that the future of
Cape San Bias is now in the

organizations should promote
Mrs. Benny Roberts, in her
report on National Defense,
expressed gratitude for the
success of the Space Shuttle.
Quoting Admiral Thomas B.
Hayward, the chief of Naval
Operations, "We are now
trying to meet a three-ocean
requirement with a one and a
half ocean Navy". He also
said "The World is becoming a
more, not less, dangerous
place for the Uqited States":
that years after Pearl Harbor
our nation is incredibly un-
prepared to undertake our
national defense. "He pleads
for national unity: for national
pride, and individual effort of
all citizens in support of our
Mrs. Roberts said that it is
the duty of parents and
schools to teach children
Mrs. Brown expressed ap-
preciation to members for the
support given to her this year
in all areas of work. She also
announced that at the recent
State Conference (94 chapter
represented) the St. Joseph

_E FOURTEEN. THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla. Thursday, April 23, 1981
Letters from Leonard...
ntative th, District
t the second week of the
ilan draws toea close there
e, several bills that arose
i&ch I feel may be of
p~htaice. One such bill we
aed .was House Bill 75
& eq e the placement
ldb n'toa mother who
prisoB outside the con-
Sf the prison. In essence,
we repealed a law that had
been passed which allowed
mothers to keep their babies
with them if the child was born
while they were in prison.
The House of Representa-
tives took the position that
prison is no place for an
infant. We believe that the
child should be placed in a
home environment, rather
than kept in prison. We also
provided some means of al-
lowing -a judge to use his
discretion about how to deal
with a pregnant woman who
has been sentenced to prison.
Concerning another issue, I
met with Governor Graham
and Transportation Secretary
Jacob Varn this week regard-
ing the funding of resurfacing
projects in District Nine, as
well as the continued funding

nade 'a motion, seconded by
commissioner Branch to
S^"adopt Ordinance No. 81-2. The
i'motion passed with Commis-
isifers .Birmigham, Branch,
tGortman and Tankersley,
voting "aye", and Commis-
stoner Money voting "nay".
rt Commissioner Money then.
explained that he was voting
his own convictions in this
matter, and that he had not
t'h been approached by any per-
i" son concerning his position on
,ACounty Health Department
: Chairman Tankersley sub-
mitted a letter from Dr. W.T.
Weathington advising the
Board that he would be
., avalable to attend a joint
fe$ .'teeeting of the Board and
'/the Health Department Per-
S't^gosnnel. Commissioner Gort-
man then moved that the
iy Bord _write a letter asking for
tlon. Commissioner Birming-
:,-seconded the motion. A
^ 'toh. Commissioner Birng-
^ lam seconded the motion. A
discussion followed in which
Commissioner Branch asked
:" twiy tthe investigative report
been made public record. He
stated that he felt that Dr.
:.WVeathiigton was working un-
S handicap inthat he is the
h cy-'onie in. Gulf County one
,;:*y a week. Commissioner
Branch further stated that
From all signs, Dr. Weathing-
.ton is a poor administrator,
Sand that although the Board
had previously told Dr. Weath-
6 ij ington to get control of the
Health Department, no follow
up action had been taken by
,the Boardand possibly Dr.
V Weathington does believe that
be has done what the Board
asked of him. Commissioner
Bratich stated that he would
like to read the investigative
report on Dr. Weathington.
S More discussion followed.
.thenmade a substitute motion
S .hat the Board write the State
a-letter informing them that
.,- Tommy Piths has been made
Administrator of the Health
.- ,Department and will oversee
S'. Commissioner Birmingham
S, seconded the motion for dis-
-cussion. Commissioner Birm-
ingham then asked for Mr.
Pitts comments on the motion.
Mr. Pitts said that his main
concern would be with the
time available he could spend
with the Health Department.
Commissioner Branch. then
stated that he felt the Board
was asking too much of Mr.
Pitts considering his present
work load. Commissioner
Branch made a substitute
motion, that the Commis-
sioners in charge of each
Health Department should
take control of their respec-
tive departments in Wewa-
hitchka and Port St. Joe.
Commissioner Money secon-
ed the motion and it carried
with Commissioners Branch,
Money, and Gortman voting
"Aye", and Commissioners
Birmingham and Tankersley
voting "nay". There followed
a lengthy discussion of this
on-going problem at *the
Health Department. Commis-
sioner Branch made a motion
to write the Boards of Com-
missioners in other counties
concerning Dr. Weathington's
performance in the Health
Departments in those
Money seconded the motion,
but it failed to pass with
Commissioners Branch and
Money voting "aye", and
Gortman, and Tankersley vot-
ing "nay" Commissioner
Tankersley then made a
motion to place Administra-

County Health Department
The Chairman announced
that this meeting was called
for the purpose of meeting
with members of the Gulf
County Health Department in
an effort to get to the bottom of
trouble plagued personnel pro-
blems that has been an
ongoing situation for a long
time and to make every effort
to straighten out his unaccept-

Director, Mr. N. C. Schwei-
kert, County Environmental

Myrtice Dean, Public Health

Commissioner in charge of the
Wewahitchka Health Depart-
ment, briefed the Commission
and the .audience on the
problems and misunderstand-
ings existing in both the Port
St. Joe and Wewahitchka
Health Department. He stated
that he has been working in an
effort to cure these problems
existing; between the two
departments, including dif-
ferences between certain per-
sonnel, the Director and the
Environmental Director; that
instead of the situation getting
better, it has steadily declined
and we have failed to resolve
these troubles. We are here
tonight to see that this pro-
blem is ironed out and running
Commissioner Money, in
charges of the Port St. Joe
Health Department, sug-
gested that. some of the
problems have been caused by
travel pay and he discussed
this with Dr. Weathington and
asked how travel pay was
arrived at. Dr. Weathington,
explained how the in-county
mileage allowances were set
out in the Florida Statutes. He
further stated the Environ-
mental Director had filed a
grievence against him be-
cause travel pay to a meeting
in South Florida was denied
him and that the travel pay
was not pre-approved, this
being the reason the trip was
not paid for. In a long
discussion that followed, all
members of the Health De-
partment, Dr. Prather, Mr.
John Pierce of the Depart-
ment of Health and Rehabil-
itative Services, and interest-
ed citizens spoke on theissue.
The Chairman asked Dr.
Weathington if he authorized
Mr. Schweikert to attend the
meeting in South Florida, the
one that the travel pay was not
paid. Dr. Weathington said he
did not give pre-approval
because funds were not avail-
able, but he arranged for him
to ride with the Environ-
mental Director from Calhoun
County; that he did not ride
with the Calhoun County Di-
rector, but later turned in a
travel voucher for the mileage
allowance for the trip. He said
that this is what the grievance
Dr. Prather said that the
Health Department operated
under Chapter 154, Florida
Statutes, which means it fol-
lows the State Personnel Pol-
icy as to travel pay, as well as
in every other area.
asked Dr. Prater if all person-
nel could be fired and start all
over with new personnel. The
answer was no, because we
must follow the State Person-
nel Policy and it cannot be
done that way.
Whereupon, there was a
motion by Commissioner
Gortman seconded by Com-
missioner Money, and
By Commissioner Money, and
it was unanimously carried,
that the Board rescind the
prior action in this matter as
to asking for Dr. Weathing-
ton's resignation for a period
of 90 days, but that if the
problem is not resolved within
the 90 day period, that all
Health Department personnel
be dismissed and start over
again with new personnel.

for the four-laning of High-
way 231. So far, no one has any
answers as to why the 231-
project disappeared from the
Department of Transporta-
tion's five-year plan; and, no
plans have been made for its
continuation in the future.
Last year we thought we had
guaranteed the funds for this
through the appropriations
process. However, after the
session was over it was
decided these monies were a
loan; and, subsequently we
lost these funds. We will have
to just keep on working to
have these projects once again
become a top priority.

DRAGON TEAM 4-81
On Friday, April 3rd, Eglin
Air Force Base was the scene of
a highly successful military
exercise which will enhance
U.S. military capability all
around the globe. The military
exercise, formally known as
"Dragon Team 4-81," was
conducted over the B-70 drop
zone in the Eglin reservation.
At this site, communication
vehicles, jeeps, howitzers, mor-
tars, ammunition, and over
1800 paratroopers dropped
from C-130 and C-141
transports. In a period of less
than 25 minutes, the troops
had already begun mobilizing
on the ground.
Dragon Team 4-81 was a
mock-up rehearsal for the
Rapid Deployment Force. The
Rapid Deployment Force
(RDF), which could con-
ceivably range from 2,000 to
200,000 troops, depending on
the situation, is meant to re-
spond quickly to situations
around the world which may
endanger our nation's security,
.This was the largest air drop by
U.S. armed forces since World
Although at first glance the
deployment of, 1800 men and
equipment may seem to be a
relatively short and simple
task, there were many hours of
preparation and planning
among three separate branches
of our armed forces. Accord-
ing to Col. Bill Harrison, who
elaborated on the exercise
while it was taking place, the
entire operation consisted of
three phases. The first phase
took place Thursday night
when the troops involved
began preparing for the jump
which would occur the next
day. Phase two consisted of the
actual dropping of heavy
equipment and the 1800
paratroopers. Phase three of
the exercise involved a simula-
tion of actual combat where
the troops seized enemy
strongholds and strategic
points. The third phase lasted
approximately four days.
Since the inception of the
Rapid Deployment Force over
a year ago, there has been
much debate in Washington as
to whether the RDF could con-
ceivably meet the tasks for
which it was designed. Critics
have contended that a strained
airlift capability, obsolete
equipment, and inadequate
personnel would be the
downfall of the RDF. Lt.
General P.X. Kelly; who is the
overall commander of the
Rapid Deployment Force, is
optimistic that the RDF will be
more than able to respond to a
variety of situations which
would have severe conse-
quences to our nation's secur-
ity. The Reagan Administra-
tion and Congress have already
expressed their support of the
RapidpDeployment program in
shoring up our defense
