Tests Show County Students Improving In Basic Skills
. Florida's public school students
bettered their scores on.the Statewide
Student Assessment Test this year in all
grades and all subjects for the first
time, figures released last Thursday by
the Florida Department of Education
Meanwhile, here in Gulf County,
the test scores rose in quality again, a
pattern which has been set every year.
by Gulf County Schools since the
program was first started in 1977.
Between October 1980 and the same
month this past fall, average statewide
scores on the three-part test rose
between one and six percent.
Superintendent of Schools, Walter
Wilder said he hasn't received, the
official state tally of Gulf's scores, as
yet, but stated the school system will be
right up there near the top in
improvement, as it has been for the
past four years of testing. "The only
figures I have is what has been printed
in the newspapers", Wilder remarked.
"The State Department has not sent us
the figures as yet."
Wilder said the figures available to.
hini, although not official, show another
dramatic increase in student achieve-
ment for the tests. Given in the third,
fifth, eighth and ,' ,.ah grades, the
tests check out the student's under-
standing of communication skills and
understanding of mathematics.
Wilder said the most dramatic
improvement has been experienced on
the eighth grade level, where students
are taking the tests for the second time
in their school career.
The eighth grade students in Port
St. Joe High School led the pack in
improvement for communication skills
with a percent increase of passing
grades by 11 percent", Wilder said. He
pointed out that back in 1977, the first
year of testing, eighth grade students in
the county posted a 67 percent mark in
passing the communications skills.
"This year, 90 percent of our ninth
graders passed the test".
Eighth graders in Wewahitchka
passed the communication skills por-
tion of the test at a 92 percent rate for a
four percent increase over last year.
In mathematics, eighth graders at
Port St. Joe High passed at a rate of 86
percent, showing a nine percent
increase over the 80 percent who passed
last year. In Wewahitchka, students in
grade eight passed at a rate of 86
percent, or a two percent increase over
the 84 percent who passed last year.
Students in grade 11 in Port St. Joe
passed their mathematics test at a rate
of 87 percent. Last year's passing rate
was 83 percent. In Wewahitchka,
eleventh graders had a passing mark of
83 percent this year and 75 percent last
LONG TERM IMPROVEMENT
Wilder said that since the tests
were started in 1977, dramatic improve-
ment has been witnessed by the test
results. "Back in 1977, we had only 67
percent of our eighth graders passing
the communication skills portion of the
test. This year it was 90 percent. In
1970, only 63 percent of our eighth
graders passed the mathematics por-
tion of the test and this year, 89 percent
had passing marks." Wilder said the
credit for most of the improvement,
went to the increased interest of the
teachers and an awareness by the
students that they had a goal to meet.
"We're more than pleased with the
progress we are making in these
areas", Wilder said. "Communication
skills, which includes reading and
writing, along with mathematics are
the foundations on which an education
are built", the Superintendent pointed
out. "They are basic to an educated
DETERMINE WEAK AREAS
Wilder stated that the basic skills
tests are used by educators to deter-
mine which students need remedial
help. State law also requires that school
districts use information about student
ability gleaned from the test in the
promotion and retention of students.
Because of the state's Primary
education Program, third grade stu-
dents must master all skills on their
basic skills test before they can be
promoted, and in high school, students
must master skills on the 11th grade
test before receiving diplomas.
Mastery of those skills, however, is
determined by the classroom teacher,
not the test score, Wilder added.
The tests are given in the fall each
year to determine where a student is
weak and needs extra help so he will
have time to receive that help before
the academic year comes to an end. A
part of the testing program is a
required remedial program in the
schools to aid students come up to the
requirements of the testing program,

Invitation to County "Theater"
In your 'editorial of January
28th, you remarked that the
State of Florida could make
money by charging admission
to the State Legislative ses-
sions rather than increasing
sales or other tax. I think this
same idea could be applied to
our own county. For example,
why not charge admission to
the Gulf County Commis-
sioners' "theater"? The local
tax payers would probably
enjoy the variety of comedy,
drama and tragedy evidenced
in each play, not to mention
the outstanding cast of char-
acters which act out their
roles with the greatest of ease.
The most recent comedy,
"The Lagoon Oyster Con-
nection" would certainly have
drawn much applause and
even a standing ovation for the
inept handling of same. The
drama concerning our beach-
es is an old play for which the
proper ending has never been
established, adding mystery
and that "Alfred Hitchcock"
touch. And let's not forget the
outstanding, but tragic, play
on the handling of the County
Appraiser's budget request
for funds. What an applause
that would have received!
Especially in the last act when
all of the actors chorused,

I was surprised at -Bill's dog

still he was startled enough that night to
put out a warning ... something he has
never done before. .
I meandered on up Mimosa, still
hearing Bill's dog muttering and
sputtering in his deep bass voice. Then
a dog around Ferrell Allen's house took
up the warning. This was a smaller dog
this time with his tenor "Yap, Yap,

which Bill White's dog had sounded'in
the first place.
This little dog continued to tell dogs
up the street that someone was coming

The City contracted with
Rowe to drill two wells with 20
inch outside casings, and an
eight inch casing inside a
gravel .and cement lining.
These two wells are expected
to supply up to 500 gallons per
minute for City use.
Rowe's price was $49,600 for
drilling the wells with the'
additional cost expected to be
for pumps for the two wells.
Clerk Alden Farris said the
City will have enough interest
earned from invested funds to
pay for the two wells.
Another expenditure will be
some $10,000 to provide a four
inch deep well for the new
perpetual care cemetery cur-

the City. The contract for this

NOTE OF THANKS
"AREN'T WE LUCKY" is
a slogan not to be confined to
the citizens of Bay County.
Having your house burn to the.
ground is NOT being LUCKY.
But, living in a community
where the response to a need
in a time such as this is SO
GREAT, that is LUCK.
When Deda's house in Talla-
hassee burned a couple -of
weeks ago and all her earthly
possessions were lost, SUCH
WAS THE CASE IN ST. JOE.
Deda and I both want to say
"THANK YOU'! to everyone
who expressed their kindness,
generosity and genuine con-
cern during this time. It made
an almost impossible task
easier to tackle.
THIS QUALITY IN
PEOPLE is what makes life in
a small town so SPECIAL. WE
ARE LUCKY TO BE A PART
OF PORT ST. JOE.

Acidity Will Affect
Health of Plants
By Roy Lee Carter County Extension Director
Sometimes plants grow
poorly for no apparent reason.
A healthy plant can be set in
what seems to be a good soil,
can'receive plenty of sunlight
and water and still look sickly
and perform poorly. If you
have areas around your home
where plants react this way,
check for a soil problem,.
.especially the wrong soil
reaction or pH.
Now, your next question is--
what is pH? Well, pH is
nothing more than a chemists
shorthand for describing the
amount of hydrogen in the
soil. The capital letter "H" is
the chemical symbol for hy-
drogen in the soil, which in
turn determines the acidity of
* the soil. I would like to thank
Dr. Robert Black, Extension
Urban Horticulturist, for pro-
S* hiding me with information
for this article.
*1. A simple numerical scale is
used to express soil pH. The
scale goes from 0.0 to 14.0. The
midpoint, pH 7.0, is the value
for pure water which is called
neutral pure water, is neither
add nor alkaline. Figures
.,below seven on .the scale
S indicate acid or "sour" and
:'the lower the number the
:iore acid the soil. Each whole'
'umber drops in pH denotes
"en times the acidity. For
e example, a soil having a pH of
Sis ten times more acid than
Sne; having a pH at six.
Iiumbers above seven indi-
S-Ste alkaline or "sweet" soil.
Again, the higher the number
the more alkaline the soil.
Two good examples of acid
S and alkaline liquids are
orange juice and sea water.
SOrange juice has a pH of about
3-7 (very acid) while sea
water has a pH of 7.9 (slightly
.Soil pH is very important
because it influences several
soil properties which directly
effect growth of plants. Soil
#H effects soil bacteria, nu-
'tiient leaching and availa-
bility, and, toxic elements.
Most plants have a range of-
tolerance to pH. Plant nutri-
ents are generally most avail-.
able in the pH range of 5.5 to
6.5. This is also a good range
for soil bacteria. And most
important, this. is the best

AND AUTOMOBILES AVAILABLE
range for most plants.
Certain plants thrive best on
acid or alkaline soils having
pH values- out of the usual
"best" range. For example:
Azaleas, bougainvillea, cro-
ton, dogwood, gardenia, hibis-
cus, holly and magnolia grow
best in acid soils having a pH
below 5.5. These plants grow
poorly and many have yellow
leaves in areas where soils are
alkaline. In contrast, cabbage
palms, yucca, seagrape and
many other plants grow quite
well on alkaline soils.
A pH determination will tell
whether your soil.is within a
range that produces good
growth but it is not an
indication of fertility. If the pH
is not optimum, it can be
raised or lowered using
chemicals available to all
If excess alkalinity exists
near the house, the only
solution is to remove the soil
and replace with a more
suitable material. If the soil is
too alkaline because of liming
or a minimum of natural
alkalinity several acid-form-
ing materials can be used to
reduce the soil pH.
Super-fine dusting or wet-
table sulfur can be used to
acidify a soil. About 10 lbs. of
sulfur applied over a 1000
square foot area will decrease
a sandy soil one unit itr pH-
like from 7.0 to 6.0 sulfur must
be washed into the soil im-
mediately after application or
it will severely burn grass or
shallow plant roots. Even with
the upmost care some burning
may occur after an applica-
tion of sulfur. The best ap-
proach is to apply an acid
forming fertilizer such as
ammonium sulfate. This ma-
terial applied at the rate of 5
lbs. per 1000 square feet of
area will acidify the soil
without burning the grass.
. Normally, lime or dolomite
is used to increase the pH or
sweeten the soil. Lime con-
tains calcium carbonate while
dolomite contains both cal-
cium and magnesium car-
bonate. Another material, hy-
drate lime, can be used for
quick change in soil pH but it
can severely burn plants and
is seldom recommended for
, home use.
.. To sum up the pH problem
follow these steps: first, find
out the pH value of the soil
where. planting is planned
(labs or kits are available for
pH determination). Second,
learn the pH preference of
ornamentals to be planted.
Last, if necessary, raise or
lower'the pH of the soil to best
suit the plant or if this isn't
possible, select a plant which
will thrive at the natural pH of

Jessie Mosetta Edwards
was born December 25,1896 in
Americus, Georgia. Being the
fourth child of a family of six,
her parents, the late Mr. and
Mrs. Moses Dudley, moved
her to'Cordele, Georgia where
she lived, until she married
The couple moved to Port
St. Joe in 1918, and became
very active in church and
civic affairs. Mrs. Edwards
attended school at night in the
home of a neighbor so that she
could learn to read and write.
In 1919, she joined Zion Fair
Missionary Baptist Church
where she has served in many
capacities, especially the Sun-
day School department. Mrs.
Edwards taught the card-
class of the school for fifty
years, and is credited with
organizing the first Junior
Choir and the Starlight Band
of her church.
Being the natural organizer
that she is, Mrs. Edwards was
always looking for. ways to
involve the youth of the
community in its growth and
development. This was done-
through teaching them their
moral responsibilities as a
Christian and a citizen.
