Schools Face Huge Expenditure

Told to Replace Material

Gulf County Schools face an expenditure
in the neighborhood of a half million dollars
because of a direction issued by the State
Department of Education, according to
Superintendent of Schools Walter Wilder.
The State Department has directed that
some 125,000 square feet of inside' ceiling
compound containing asbestos fibers must be
removed from the ceilings and replaced with,
an acceptable product.
Wilder says Gulf County isn't alone in this
expensive directive. "Every county in the
state received the same orders", he said.
Primarily the asbestos is found in
acoustical ceiling applications in all schools
of the county. The material has been in use for
several years. Wilder says that while the
county must remove and replace some 125,000
square feet of the product, most of it is found
in the ceilings of the gymnasiums and
commons areas of Port St. 'Joe and
Wewahitchka high schools.
The pill won't be quite so bitter to
swallow, according to Wilder, since the State
Department of Education will, provide the
county School Board with a grant of $3.00 per
square fbot to remove the offending material.
The School Board will have to replace the
removed ceiling material at their own
If the. removal expense requires the
entire $3.00 per square foot, just this job will

cost $375,000. Wilder said, "We have been
informed by those who understand such
things, that it will cost the School Board at
least as much to replace the material with an
acceptable product, as it will cost to remove
the .asbestos material". That means the
School Board faces the possibility of having to
come up with approximately $375,000 to finish
"the job.
Wilder said the School Board will try to
get most of the asbestos material removed
and replaced over the holidays. "It will be a
major undertaking", he said, "because the
accepted method of removal is almost like
getting ready for a surgical procedure.
Everything must be sealed off and the
workmen must comply with an elaborate
safety program while the work is in
Wilder went on to say, "We don't know
yet what we will replace the acoustical ceiling
substance with. We have an architect working
on it now. The material that is in place
presently is there for acoustics as well as its
decorative qualities".
The, Superintendent explained the direc-
tive has come. down from the State
Department because of recent findings which
have linked asbestos fibers in paint and
ceiling materials as cancer causing agents.
Wilder said some of the asbestos fiber
material is also found in the elementary
schools in the county, but only in very small
isolated quantities.

The asbestos-laced coating on this ceiling presents a danger to the people who inhabit
in Port St. Joe High School's Commons area the building. All of this covering must-blie

George George of Apalachi-

County Puts Approval On Budget

The Gulf County Commission com-
promised on a millage rate of 6.6599 last
week, to finance its $3.2 million budget
plan for fiscal 1982.
Meeting in a budget hearing session
the Commission had no opposition to
their proposed millage levy rate except
among their own number.
When Clerk Jerry Gates read the
rate at 6.66 for the operational budget,
Commissioner Billy Branch quickly
moved that the millage rate be adopted.
James Tankersley seconded the motion
and it seemed as if the meeting would
be over in just a few minutes.
Then, Commissioners Eldridge
Money and Chairman Jimmy Gortman
realized the implications of the mill
rate. "That's the Biblical 'mark of the
beast" Money noted. "That's right",
interjected Chairman Gortman. Led by
Gortman, the two Commissioners then
began to argue with their fellow

Commissioners about changing the mill
Clerk Gates noted the Commission
couldn't increase the millage without
going through the entire. process all
over again and to lower it would be
almost impossible, since every penny
was needed in the tight budget.
Gortman observed, "I'll compro-
mise with a lot of things, but there are
some things I believe in and will not
change my mind on." Gortman then
asked if there was not some place in the
budget which could be cut in order to
reduce the millage slightly.
Clerk Gates noted that reducing the
rate to 6.65 would reduce the budget by
$1,800, but he wanted the Commission to
tell him where to take the money from.
After haggling over the matter,
Sheriff Ken Murphy volunteered to take
the money from his budget.
A remark was then made that

reducing the millage to 6.6599 would
reduce the budget by only $180, but Tax
Collector Eda Ruth Taylor said the
extra number in the mill rate would
cause her office problems. "We can live
with it, though", Mrs. Taylor said.
The rate of 6.6599 was then
approved unanimously and adopted
and everyone was satisfied.., almost.
Another reduction was made in the
millage to be levied when Evan
Williams of St. Joe Beaches Fire
Department said he felt the fire district
millage in the St. Joseph Fire Control
District was too high. "We don't need
that kind of money at St. Joe Beach".
St. Joe Beaches FD gets one third of the
revenue from the St. Joe District, which
was more than doubled from its rate of
last year.
As a result of Williams statement,
the Commission lowered the millage to
bring in $13,000. The original plan had
the district taxed for $19,000.

program is relegating the senior
citizens right back to the position
some of them were in before the
program started. Many of them live
alone and through the years become
lax in preparing themselves a hot
meal simply because it is too much
trouble. Many of those in Gulf
County who attend the meal pro-
gram do it for this reason and the
fellowship they get by joining in with
some of their older friends at
meal-time and socializing. It makes
life easier for them and sees that
they get the nourishment they need.

Life In Florida Varies In Quality

From One Portion to Another

A "do-it-yourself kit" for
analyzing the quality of life in,
different areas of Florida has
been prepared by the Uni-
versity of Florida's Bureau of
Economic and Business Re-
Fifty-four indicators for
each of fourteen Standard
Metropolitan Statistical Areas
(SMSAs) allow comparison of
such things as birth and death
rates, population density, edu-
cation and income levels,
employment, climate, health,
property values, sales, tax-
ation and many other condi-
tions and situations.
These current figures for
Florida metropolitan areas
and sixty-six indicators for the
state as a whole, other Sunbelt
states and other populous
states appear in the quality-of-
life section in the just-released
1981 edition of the "Florida
Statistical Abstract" compil-
ed by the Bureau.staff. The
696-page reference book is
available at $15 for paperback
and $22 for hardcover from
University Presses of Florida,
15 N.W. 15th St., Gainesville
A summary of the SMSA
quality-of-life table appears in
the October' issue of the
Bureau's monthly "Economic
Leaflets" newsletter available
free to Florida residents. Dr.
Fran Terhune, managing edi-
tor of "Abstract" and assist-
ant director of the Bureau,
points, out in the "Leaflets"
article that quality of life is a
subjective judgment. For that
reason, the "Abstract" editors
simply provide the most re-
cent numbers without analysis
or interpretation- a "do-it-
yourself kit" for readers and
researchers to use to draw
their own conclusions.
Though there are now six-
teen .SMSAs in Florida, the.
latest two (Ocala-Main
County and Ft. Walton Beach-
Okaloosa County) were added
too late'to be included in the
current "Abstract" quality-of-

Oc Postage Stamp GoesInto Effect and We Hardly Heard

clase piece of letter mail went up to 20
cents the first of the month and hardly a
murmur was heard. After two previous
attempts when all kinds of unkind
-things were said about the Postal
Service, they finally got it into effect
without stirring so much as a ripple.'
I: guess the people finally accepted
the'fact that the rate was going to be
raisedd no matter what and that was
I really thought the Postal Service
WYs raising the rate because they
Needed themoney, but since that time, I
..even wonder about that. A couple of
weeks ago, David Roche went to the
'Post Office for Roche's Furniture and
- came back from the Post Office with a
Payment from a lady in Eastpoint
';bearing an 18 cent stamp and two
'pennies scotch taped to the envelope to
.make up the 20 cents postage.
t 'he letter had gone to the sectional
office in Tallahassee and several points
: in between before it arrived in Port St.
SJoe. Nobody took off the two pennies for
the extra postage. Even David Roche
hasn't taken the two pennies off. He's
keeping the envelope as a conversation

I don't know if he can spend the two
pennies or not. They had been run
through a stamp cancelling machine
and cancelled along with the 18 cent


stamp which was stuck on the corner of
.the envelope.
Maybe the Postal Service has -a
.heart or didn't need the two cents.
David still has them in his possession if
the Postal Service ever discovers they
sent a first class letter for 18 cents in
this 20 cent era and come for their
and our feet will be pushed up under the

burdened table and I plan to do my part
to unburden it.
Each and every year, I try to come
tip with some different reason for being
thankful for what we as Americans

remarked, "I'm thankful it didn't.
Our perrenial ray of sunshine,
Michael Leslie, came more alive on
that one and exclaimed, "I have so

foi* 'i

have and what I as an individual have.
It isn't as much as some and more than
others; a statement which I think would
fit all of us.
We as a nation even the poor-
est of us have so much more than
most of the rest of the world, we really
ought to be ashamed to complain about,

really feels that way. Michael does a
good job for us as an assistant
pressman on the big web press, but he
would almost be worth what he's paid
for his positive attitude. Hardly any-
body can. stay in a blue funk with
Michael around.
Although Michael is unusual in that
respect, he has an attitude which more
of us should have, especially at this

time of the year. If you sit down and
start enumerating all you should be
thankful for to live in America, in a
good town, to have a good job, to have
good friends, live among good people,
there's just too many reasons for being
thankful to get a count.
I imagine someone will put forth
the supreme effort to find something to
complain about even tomorrow.,

so far as Port St. Joe is concerned.
After 10 weeks of following the Sharks
every Friday night, it's almost as much
a relief to have the season end as it is to
see it begin.
As much as I will enjoy having

season I would be willing to lay a
wager that the most pleased people in
town this Friday night will be the wives
of the coaches. Not only don't they have
to go to the game and be good sports.

grumpy things they married for days if
the team loses.
I'm sure it has been a frustrating
season for the coaches; even more so
than for the fans. The season turned out
just the opposite of what it should have
One of the most frustrated is
probably Ashley Abrams, who loves to
play the game and who was depended
on to be the sparkplug for the Shark
offense. Ashley has been hampered all
season long, first by a broken collar
bone and then by a leg injury. He loves

The team suffered three broken
collar bones this season, more than
they have probably suffered in the past
10 to 15 years. Cap this off with a couple
of sprained ankles and you have a

games that little extra spark of a
healthy squad would have had, a good
chance of winning.

Mistrial for

Two Defendants

Two Port St. Joe men will
spend the Christmas holidays
awaiting trial for extortion
and marijuana distribution
after having their scheduled
trial last Thursday declared a
mistrial by Circuit Judge
Larry Bodiford.
Leroy Gathers, Jr., 24 and
Stanley Winfield, 28, were in
court charged with an attempt
to blackmail Marion Tipton, a
clerk at Duren's Market on
Highway 98 recently. They are
charged with attempting to
force her to give them liqour
in exchange for drugs.
Immediately after Assistant
State Attorney Mel Magidson
started his opening remarks,
public defender Fred Witten
moved for a mistrial on a point
of law. Witten said Magidson

Crab Study

The horseshoe crab tagging
study being conducted in St.
Joseph Bay by Dr. Anne
Rudloe is now completed. A
total of 10,062 tagged crabs
were released in May of 1980.
Of these, 1415 were recovered
during the summer of 1980 and
167 were recovered during
The purpose of the study
was to see if bleeding horse-
shoe crabs hurts their ability
to survive in the ocean after-
ward. Thousands of crabs are
bled every year and the blood
is used in medical research.
According to Dr. Rudloe,
bleeding did not harm the
crabs to a significant degree.
All of the recaptured crabs
had stayed in St. Joseph Bay
except for eight. One. was
found at St. Vincent Island and
seven were recovered in St.
Andrew Bay at Panama City.
Dr. Rudloe expressed her
thanks to Presnell's Fish
Camp, Bayou Grocery, The
Star, Wood's Fisheries, and
Raffield's Fisheries for their
help in the study as well as the.
many people who found and
returned tags.

Some Extra Income Has

No Effect On SS Checks

Some income received by a
self-employed person after
retirement may not affect
benefit checks, David Robin-
son, Social Security field
representative for Gulf
County, said recently.
The general rule is all
self-employment income re-
ceived by a person in a year
can affect his or her right to
benefits. An important excep-
tion to this rule applies to
income received after retire-
ment which was earned before
that time.
Under this rule, income
received in a year after the
year of retirement which is
not attributable to services
performed after the month
benefits start does not count

for the annual earnings test,
the measure used to decide if
benefits should be paid.
Those affected by this ex-
ception include:
Farmers who sell carryover
crops in a year after the year
of retirement but were raised,
harvested, and stored before
Self-employed life insurance
agents who receive renewal
commissions after retirement
from policies sold before then;
Retired partners who re-
ceive a share of the partner-
ship income after retirement;
Silent partners who may
never have worked in the
partnership but who receive a
share of the income based on
their investment;

Other retired self-employed
people who receive self-
employment income solely
from the ownership of an
income producing enterprise.
The exception does not
apply to any tax liability
including Social Security self-
employment tax. The excep-
tion does apply to all tax years
after 1977.
More information about the
annual earnings test, includ-
ing this exception, can be
obtained at the Panama City
Social Security office. The
people there will be glad to
answer any questions. The
office is located at 30 West

The St. Joe Chapter of the
National AARP organization
met in the Union Hall on
Monday, November 9, with an
attendance of more than 200
members and guests.
George Tapper was guest
speaker and he spoke of the
future of Gulf County in the
next decade, with a population
growth of close to 24,000. His
interesting talk was highly
received by those present.
Members and guests present

The nominating committee,
chaired by Ruth Ramsey,
selected the same panel of
officers, headed by Stiles

tional Society Daughters of
the American Revolution),
Tomassee DAR School in
Tomassee, South Carolina,
and Kate Duncan Smith DAR
School in Grant, Alabama,
giving the information Mrs.
Browne had requested. The
letters were written by stu-
dents from the two schools and
from a Child Care Director,
the outstanding letter being
from a ten-year-old from Kate
Duncan Smith.
Tomassee, an Indian School
meaning "Sunlight of God"
and named by the underprivi-
leged Cherokee Indians, was
established in 1916, a boarding
school serving nearly 300
students, grades 1-12. The
Kate Duncan Smith School,
established in 1924, is a
Junior-Senior High School
reaching 1000 students, also
underprivileged. Both are ex-
cellent schools, stressing
sound education with patriotic
and religions emphasis. Both
schools are doing a tremen-
dous job and are deserving of
our best efforts.
Mrs. Browne said that Kate
Duncan Smith School will
accept new, or nearly new,
clothing for children for resale
in the thrift shop, but that the
greatest of both schools is for
cash donations. An offering
was taken for division be-
tween the two.
Mrs. Eda Ruth Taylor, Vice
Regent, presiding in the ab-
sence of Mrs. Charles Browne
who was in Municipal Hospital
following an accident, gave an
excellent report of the Mes-
sage of the President-General,
Mrs. Benny Roberts, Chair-
man of Civil Defense, based
her report on several very
interesting and thought-pro-
voking articles from the Civil
Defense Magazine, The Defen-
der. The articles had to do
with the English language
being officially adopted as the
national language; the short-
age of water in. the United
States today and what it can
lead to; objections to the
United Nations at "it's fatuous
worst", and the opinion of
NSDAR on this subject. Mrs.
Roberts, discussing the plight
of South Africa, said that the
West cannot allow South
Africa to fall into Soviet
hands- to come under Com-
munist sway. Emphasizing
the importance of South
Africa to the U.S., she said
that this subject is deserving
of deep study by all Ameri-
cans, and quoted Congress-
man Winn of Kansas, who
said, "The General Assembly
has abandoned principle and
embraced fatuity". Another
subject for discussion was the
question, "Is food a strategic
weapon'.'? (Interesting
thought!) And the last article
was entitled "Peace through
Strength- A Worthy National
Goal", and had to do with
military might. Theo Roose-
velt was quoted as saying,
"Speak softly, but carry a big

stick". George Washington
said, "To be prepared for war
is the most effectual way of
preserving peace", and Con-
gressman Stratton said that if
we seek peace in today's
world, we must develop a
military capability second to
Acting on recommendations
presented by Mrs. Stiles

from Motel St. Joe in memory
of deceased members, Mrs.
George (Margaret) Core and
Mrs. Tom (Corinne Costin)

from Ralph T. Norman, Chair-
man of Veterans' Service,

************** THANKSGIV**********

November is a busy month
for most people. As autumn
draws to a close, we hurry
about getting ready for the
winter and preparing for the
Christmas season. But in
November, we also pause to
celebrate the most American of
all holidays, Thanksgiving
All Americans know the
Thanksgiving story by heart.
We are familiar with the
history of the Pilgrims and
Plymouth Rock, of the long,
cold winter and the many hard-
ships the settlers suffered, and
of their joy at the successful
harvest. Every child can relate
how the Indians and the
Pilgrims joined together to
celebrate that harvest and to
give thanks to God for all that
. He had provided them.
However, few of us recall the
Pilgrims of yesterday when we
think of the problems and
troubles of today. Unfor-
tunately, many people, it
seems, are inclined to see only
: the bad things in our country,
ignoring the good. It .is true
that many things are wrong
with America and with the
world. Although Congress and
the President are working to
improve it, our economy is still
in a mess. We live in a violent
age, an age of social unrest and
change. But, as a nation, we
are uniquely blessed and we
have many more things to be
thankful for than we do to
complain about.
A year ago, as winter ap-
proached, 52 Americans were
still held captive in Iran. Our
name was dragged through the
mud abroad and we all felt

trapped and helpless as we
watched our fellow coun-
trymen taunted before our
eyes. Today the.hostages are
'home and, partly as a result cf
their experience, America has
had a rebirth of patriotism and
pride. For this we can be
In a time when much of the
world jeers that America has
lost its competitive edge and
that we are no longer an in-
novative nation, we have twice
this year successfully launched
and returned to earth a space
shuttle -- the world's first
reusable space craft. As the
"Columbia" blasts off in a
cloud of fire and thunder or as
it wings in for a faultless land-
ing, few people can deny that
we remain a technologically
superior -nation. For this we
can be thankful.
In March our President was
shot by a deranged gunman in
our nation's .capital. But he
survived, as did his press
secretary, Jim Brady, and the
other men who were wounded
while protecting him. For this
we can be thankful. America is .
not immune to the violence
that .is sweeping the world.
Heads of state and religious
leaders are no longer safe, even
in their own. countries. But,
America still has not experi-
.enced the full brunt of interna-
tional terrorism. We do not
live under the fear of im-
mediate attack as do many of.
the world's people.
" It would be naive to claim
that all is well with America.
This is obviously not the case.
Much can. and should be done

Tyndall Air Force Base Has Uniqu e.I

Air Combat Training Program

"Tyndall Air Force Base is
here to stay in the foreseeable
future", Colonel Denny Green
of Tyndall told the Port St. Joe
Rotary Club last Thursday.
Col. Green said that with
added responsibilities, and
money spent to up-date the
h-p facilities recently, he

feels the Air Force base has a
task to perform for many
years to come. The base is
unique in its program for
training in training air combat
teams in their craft.

The Sharks, normally grind
out a substantial amount of
yardage on the ground with its
one-two running punch of Alan
Sisk and Andy Wilkinson, but
Friday night, they could count
only 82 ground yards. In the
last few games, the Sharks
have developed an adequate
passing game to take up the
slack left by injuries in their
running attack, but even this
fell short Friday night 52
yards. Chris Adkison threw
the ball 17 times and had only
four of them caught for yards
gained. Adkison was inter-
cepted two times for a season
high in any one game.
A fumbled punt and two
pass interference calls on the
Sharks in the first half led to
two Demon touchdowns. In
one of the interference calls
Chris Adkison had intercepted
the Demon pass,'>but the
referee ruled he had interfer-
ed and it gave the Demons a
first down. Three plays later,
-the Sharks were again called
for interference which put the
ball at the 12 yard line for the
Demons, who went on to score.
As the second period open-

Cool Weather Bulb Planting Time

As the weather. ,1t .
the coming weeks inan\ ol us
will devote more time to
gardening.. There are many
things we can do during the
fall to improve and beautify
our home grounds including
flower gardens. One group of
plants that is very desirable
for winter color is the bulbs.
The word bulb, as used in its
most common sense, includes
true bulbs, corms, tuber, and
rhizomes. For example: lilies,
grape hyacinths, narcissus
and amaryllis are true bulbs;
gladiolus, crocus and mont-
bretia are corms; calla lily,
caladium and tuberose are
tubers; and canna is an
example of the rhizome type.
To most people, all these
plants are called bulbs.

Bulbs may be grown in beds
to produce amass of color or
for cut flowers or they may be
used in a perennial border or
along the edge of shrubbery.
In general, most bulbs
thrive in a well-drained soil
having plenty of organic mat-
ter. A sunny spot is best but
some bulbs will flower in
partial shade.
The climate in Florida is
favorable for growing many
tropical and sub-tropical bulbs
which are only grown as pot
plants in the North. Unfortu-
nately, many of the common
bulbs of northern states- like
tulips, hyacinths, some irises
and lilies- do not grow well in
Florida. Very often these
bulbs flower poorly or not at
all, even in northern Florida.

bulbs well adapted to Florida.
The small-flowered cluster

polyanthus type can be grown
in Florida. Old varieties such
as paper white. Chinese
sacred lily, Soleil d'Or can be
grown outdoors or forced to
flower indoors. They are
usually planted in October and
November. Most other varie-
ties of narcissus, daffodils or
jonquils bloom poorly except
in northwest Florida.

Florida and if planted in the
winter, will produce large
amaryllis-like flowers in late
spring and into the summer.
The Easter lily is also a
common bulb which can be
planted in November and
expected to flower mainly in
April, May and June.
Another excellent bulb for
the home garden is the
gladiolus. In southern Florida,
the corms are planted from
September through February.
In northern Florida delay
planting until January or
February. About three months
after planting you will be
rewarded with a beautiful
mass of color.

Amaryllis bulbs can also be
planted in the winter. Many
varieties are available in
colors from white to dark red
and in striped colors. Planting
bulbs at several weeks inter-
vals from November to Feb-
ruary, will give a succession
of bloom from spring to
If you want to try to grow
tulips or hyacinths, they will
need a cold-treatment. Bulbs
should be stored in a refrig-
erator (not a freezer) for
about 60 days at 40 degrees or
120 days at 50 degrees. Plant
bulbs immediately after the
cold treatment. Delay will
result in poor flowering.
