PORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA 32456 THURSDAY, JANUARY 21, 1982
The Gulf County Mosquito Control crews are
shown in the photograph above putting the'
- finishing touches on the first of four new trash
disposal sites throughout the county. This
-particular installation is located east of Oak
Grove in the Port St. Joe area, and will replace a
filled up land fill site, which has been declared as
not meeting state standards for a land fill area.
Most of Gulf- County will not meet the
requirements of the state, which requires that
garbage be buried at least five feet above the,
water table and under at least two feet of earth to
meet their new standards. Most of Gulf County
has a ground water table of less than six feet,
which makes 'it impossible to meet state,
With the new trash disposal system being put
into operation, trash will be dumped into trailers
and pulled periodically to a central land fill site,
which meets state approval, for burial.
In the new system, trailers will be parked
where the pick-up truck is shown in the photo.
above, in front of the retainer wall. Behind the
wall, where the workmen are shown, a ramp has
been built which will allow patrons of the site to
drive to the edge of the retainer wall and dump
their trash and garbage into the trailer with a
minimum of effort.
County officials, which operate the Mosqi
Control program and the land fill operations
the new' system will eliminate some of
promiscuous strowing of trash at the duminp si
as well as meeting state standards. -
This new site is expected to go into operate
the first of next week. -
Gulf County has been under the directiVy
the state for the past five years to do someth
about its land fill-program to make it accept
to the state. The trailer program was determli
by the County to be the most effective
economical 'method of meeting the standard

A donation of money by
Basic, Inc., to the Port St. Joe
branch of the Regional Lib-

Judge Rules County Must Pay
Circuit Judge Larry Bodi-
ford ruled last Thursday that
Gulf County must fund an
additional $4,057 for the- first
quarter of fiscal 1982, to
finance the operation of the
Property Appraiser's office.
For the year, the judge's
ruling -would set a precedent
which will cost the county
$16,228 more than it planned to
spend for the office and its
The ruling came when Pro-
perty Appraiser Joyce Wil-
liams sought a Writ of Man-
damus when the county refus-
ed to furnish a portion of Mrs.
Williams requested budget in
the first quarter of the fiscal
year. Mrs. Williams requested
a quarterly budget draw of
$23,783.19, but the county fur-
nished only $19,446.19. This
Was in October. In December,
Mrs. Williams took the matter
to court, seeking the manda-
Judge Bodiford, 'in making
his decision Thursday,.said he -
was doing so "reluctantly".
Bodiford remarked, "The tax
payers of Gulf County will be
the ones to suffer from it."
HAD NOT COMPLIED
After Williams' attorney,
Jerry Foster of Tallahassee
was able to point out that the
County had not complied with
the statute and filed objections
to Williams' budget- by Sep-
tember 1, 1981, Judge Bodiford
said he had no alternative but
to grant the Writ, which
commanded the County to
furnish the extra money for
Foster put Lynn Bramlett,
an official with the state
Department of Revenue on the
stand and received testimony
that the county was bound by
the statutes to object to the
Appraiser's budget by the
September 1 deadline ini order
to be within the framework of
the statute. Mrs. Bramlett
said the Department had the,
authority to dictate to the
county how much they would
fund for the Appraiser's of-
fice. Under questioning from
Judge Bodiford in the summa-
tion period, Bramlett admitt-
ed there was no formula by
which the DOR set budgets for
Appraisers. There was no
criteria of work load, number
of pieces of property, or any
other guidelines to setting
Appraiser's budgets. Tite of-
fice arbitrarily decided what
the office should have.
Attorney William J. Rish,
who. defended Gulf County in
the matter, charged the De-
partment of Revenue failed to
notify the County of Williams'
approved budget according to
the statutes, which carry a
July 15 deadline for advising
the county of their decision.
"According to your letter of
notification, to the county, it is
dated on July 15, 1981, which
Would cause it to arrive in the
county a- few days following
the .deadline, not giving the
county official notice by the
Rish said, "They're (DOR)
the ones responsible for any
late action, not the county."
Rish held that because DOR's
notice was late, their notifica-
tion had no legal bearing on
the county's action.
Rish also pointed out to the
court that the Property Ap-.
praiser did not have an
appraisal roll in the hands of
the county until August 31,
preventing the county from
setting any budget (including
the Property Appraiser's) un-
til they knew what kind of
financial base they would 'be

Workmen scrambled all over a tall
antenna tower behind the St. Joseph
Telephone and Telegraph Company building
early this week, dismantling the tower for
re-location to the Gulf Cablevision site at
Ward Ridge. Not too many people gathered to
watch the workers do their dangerous but
graceful maneuvers on the tall tower,
possibly because too many people just can't
stand such heights. Notice the worker at the
top of the tower who seems to be just standing
on one of the narrow girders. Actually, he has
his arm around a small cable as a safety
device. Even so, he can have that job. The
tower is probably all dismantled by now and
being reassembled at the Gulf Cablevision
site. The phone company replaced the,tower
with a larger, higher installation recently.

testimony that Williams had
not appeared before the Com-
mission during their budget
making period to negotiate
her figure as other office
holders had done. She did not
appear before the Board until
late in October when she
agreed on a budget of $86,500,
then changed her mind the
following day, opting to stay
with her original request of
'$93,000 to which the state
Department of Revenue had
attached an additional $1,500.
Bramlett testified that when
they received Williams' bud-
get request from her office for
approval, the DOR noticed
that she had prepared the
document prior to an action by
the State Legislature, which
had increased Williams salary
by $1,500. Their action was to
add the $1,500 to the budget
and approve that amount.
Rish defended the county's
actions by stating the law
requires the county to operate
on the previous year's budget
until a new budget could be
drawn. "This is what happen-
ed because the property rolls
were late"; he said. He
pointed out that- all. other
offices in the county had been
treated in a like manner with

which he interpreted as stat-
ing the county didn't have to
appeal the budget in question
since the DOR didn't notify the
county on schedule.
In his summation, Rish held
that the DOR had lost jurisdic-
tion in the case because of
their failure to notify on time
and that the county had acted
properly, in complying with
the TRIM bill and adopting the
previous year's budget until a
tax roll could be presented and
a budget drawn.
Foster summed up by stat-
ing that the county knew what
the budget request was and
still failed to object in the
prescribed time. He pointed
out that Williams was not late
,with her roll, since she had
applied for and received two
extensions and her rolls were
presented within the extension
The property appraisal rolls
are due to the County Com-
mission on July 1. Mrs.
Williams presented the rolls
on August 31, after receiving
two extensions of time.

County Commissioners would

Charles Measamer, a vice-
president with Florida Na-
tional Bank, explained the
advantages and disadvant-
ages of the new Individual
Retirement Account program
recently introduced to the
nation at Tuesday's meeting
of the Kiwanis Club.
Measamer said the program
started in 1974 on a limited
basis, but the first of the year,
the program became avail-
able to everyone.
Measamer said some of the
advantages of the program
are the tax deduction for funds
placed in IRA and the method
in which the account grows
through compounded interest.
Liabilities are that the ac-
count is assessed a heavy
penalty if the funds are
withdrawn before age 59,1 and
the interest rate is not guaran-
teed for more than a year at a
Measamer said that pre-
sently, the Florida Bank is
offering the IRA's at 15
percent until June 30, explain-
ing that the owner then had
two options of accepting a
lower guaranteed rate of
return or allowing his deposit
to float with the treasury note
interest rate. Measamer noted
that Florida Bank also offered
free checking with a $500
deposit and free NOW account
service with a $1,000 deposit.
Measamer said the funds
-can-be transferred from-insti-
tution to institution without
penalty. A man may deposit
up to $2,000 a year for himself
and $250 for his spouse if she is
not employed. If both husband
arid wife are employed, 'they
may deposit up to $2,000 per

After a full year of wildfires
that proved the most damag-
ing on record, Florida faces an
even more threatening fire
situation during the next four
months, Commissioner of
Agriculture Doyle Conner said
"The Division of Forestry
has reported more than 14,400
fires in 1981, and they burned
more than 565,000 acres," he
said: "By conservative calcu-
lation, the trees losf were
worth $40 million or more. The
inconvenience to the Florida.
public, and the damage to the
environment, were costs that
cannot be evaluted in dol-
The cheapest form of "in-
surance" against wildfire is
fireline 'plowing and pre-
scribed burning. The Division
of Forestry is very active in
these two areas but you should
know that these services are
also 'available from other
sources. Many private forest
consultants and industrial for-
esters are well equipped to
handle prescribed burning
Prescribed burning, besides
helping to "fireproof" a stand
of trees. is a groat benefit to
wildlife by providing im-
proved forage. The clearing of
underbrush by fire also im-
proves accessibility for hunt-
ing or cattle grazing.
Before you strike the first
match always remember to
contact the Division of For-
estry. They can provide wea-
ther information, burning con-
ditions, equipment and labor
cost information and provide
the necessary permits allow-
ing you to legally burn.

Don't be too hasty in prun-
ing cold damaged plants such
as hibiscus, allamanda, poin-
settia, citrus, rubber plants,
philodendrons and others. The
extent of cold damage in many
instances, cannot be distinctly
determined until growth
starts in the spring.
By pruning now, you may
cut off live wood: Also, the
leaves and stems that are
dead afford some protection to
that not yet damaged. If you
prune this out, later freezes
may do more damage than
would have been done if the
dead parts were left on the
plant. If you do prune now,
cover the part remaining
during freezing weather to
protect it. My information for
this 'article was provided by
IFAS Extension Horticulturist
Dr. Robert Black.
Although the entire top of
some plants (rubber plant,
philodendron, poinsettia and
others) may have been- killed
by freezing, these plants may
send up new shoots from the
roots next spring. Don't write
the plant off until warm
weather arrives, and they
have a chance to renew
Frozen banana stalks and
bird of paradise stems may be
removed as soon as you can
determine how much is dead.
Banana stalks become brown
and soft when frozen. New
shoots will appear from the
ground next spring. With bird
of paradise there is no true
stem, only leaf stalks. These
will turn brown soon after
freezing. You may remove
them or leave them for
protecting the root system
until spring. It is very doubtful
that bird of paradise plants
which were killed back to the
ground will flower next spring
or summer. Following a
freeze, it generally takes from
12 to 15 months for the plants
to flower again.
Freeze damage to citrus is
not easy to determine in its
entirety, since damage to the
trunk may not show up for
several months following the
cold weather. Trees should be
prmed as soon, as possible
after the extent of damage has

It often takes this long for
freeze damage to the trunk to
show up in the growth of the
plants. In citrus, it is possible
to have limited damage to the
foliage and severe damage to
the trunk. Remember, too,
that most citrus is grafted and
if the tree is killed back below
where the graft was made, the
new shoots will again have to
be grafted or else you'll get
only small, poor quality fruit
from the rootstock. So, if your

leaf burn. Cold damaged
flower buds will either drop
from the plant or only partial-
ly open showing a brown
center. Leaf damage on ca-
mellias will not be too lasting,
as new leaves will come out in
spring and the old, damaged
ones will drop from the plant.
Keep plants as healthy as
possible and provide as much
protection as you can during
cold weather and chances are
very little pruning of cold

sary. However, if all your
efforts fail and you loose a
plant, don't' become discour-
aged. From a landscape stand
point it is better to mix the
hardy and tropical or .tender
plants so that the loss of a few
tropical plants will not destroy
the effect of the landscape
planting. Further, consider
the, enjoyment you can
achieve in growing such a
tremendous array of plants
that are available in Florida.
The loss of a few tropicals is
'no big problem. Just replace

Don't Prune Damaged
Wood Too Soon
By Roy Lee Carter County Extension Director
Traffic deaths on Florida's
highways set a new all-time
record in 1981, said the Florida
Highway Patrol recently.
Preliminary totals show
that 3,062 persons died on
Florida's streets and high-
ways during 1981. Delayed
reports could increase the
final total by as much as 50
The previous year, 1980, had
set a record of 2,879 deaths
with 199,763 persons injured in
Pedestrian deaths increased
from 675 in 1980 to 690 in 1981.
Bicycle deaths rose from 109
to 126 during the same period.
Motorcycle 'deaths showed a
dramatic decrease from 218 in
1980 to 151, in 1981. Rural
deaths were up seven percent
and urban deaths increased 11
Traffic deaths in Florida
have steadily increased: since
1976 when there were 2,015.
The last decrease came after
the 55 mph speed limit was
imposed and fuel, became
scarce in 1974.
Colonel Eldrige Beach, Pa-
trol director said, "Careless"
driving has been the leading
contributing factor with the
drinking driver a close second
in fatal crashes. Speeding was
in third place."
He continued, "Until drivers
take it upon them-selves to
operate their vehicles more
safely and pedestrians, motor-
cyclists and bicyclists use
more care, this tragic slaught-
er on our streets and highways
