Thomas used the preservation of
the free enterprise system as his
subject for an entertaining talk.
During the times when he waxed
serious, Thomas challenged the Cham-
ber members to encourage the teaching
of the free enterprise system in the
public schools. "This nation was made
great gn the free enterprise system and
it's about the last nation on earth which
practices this business attitude."
Thomas said, "The last hope for the

system. We need to change some

It wasn't a very exciting
meeting Tuesday night, when
the City Commission gathered
for its regular session, but
action was taken which would
make the City $400,000 richer.
For the past year and a half,
the City has been involved
with the Environmental Pro-
tection Agency to receive the
last payment of a promised
grant on the construction of
the Wastewater Treatment
Plant. EPA had been with-
holding 10 percent of the grant
which was made back when
the plant was under construc-
tion. Release of the final 10
percent the $400,000 was
delayed until a final audit of
the facility could be made by
EPA and substantiated by the
Notification was received
this past week that the audit
process is complete and the
check will be forthcoming in
just a few days.
The only catch in the matter
is that the City can't spend the
money. It must go into a trust
fund to pay for repairs and
alterations to the plant which
EPA has required to meet
their changing standards.
To help spend this $400,000,
the City Commission agreed to
a contract with Jones, Ed-
munds and Associates, engin-
eers Tuesday' night, to begin
design work on the several
items which need changing at
the plant, according to EPA.
The firm, of Gainesville, has
been employed on a job by job

contract at'ary point with a 14

Reached by Teachers and School
Board Contract Negotiators
After a bargaining session Monday
afternoon, Gulf County Classroom Tea-
chers and the Gulf County School Board
have come to a tentative contract
agreement which will settle salary sche-
dules for the next two years in the Gulf
According to School Board negotiator
Temple Watson, the Board and the teacher
organization representatives have agreed
to the contract which, now needs the
approval of the teacher' organization
members for final approval. Watson said
yesterday this decision should be made
within the week. If the tentative pact is
approved, Watson said a contract should
be signed sometime next week.
'The teacher organization and the
School Board had already tentatively
agreed on the current year's contract in.
earlier bargaining, but acceptance of the
package hinged on what happened con-
cerning the contract for next year.
For next year's pay pact, the teacher
organization started with a request for 75
percent of all new money coming to the
county next year being set aside for
teacher salary increases. This figure was
modified to 65 percent in a bargaining
session last week. Monday, the percentage
figure was changed altogether and a new
formula agreed to by both parties.
Under the new agreement, teachers in
the county school system would receive a
minimum wage increase of 10 percent
in each salary step for next year. Still to be
negotiated for next year's contract are
several minor items which Watson said
should be worked out with no problem.
For the current year, which started
back last year with the beginning of the
school year, teachers have settled for a
$700 per teacher increase across the board,
a $10 increase in the board contribution
toward medical insurance and designation'
of part of the unused sick leave

While other counties in the Panhandle
are having a struggle arriving at a salary

Watching the World Go By...
Owe Debt to Christian Teachers
By Adolph Bedsole"
First Baptist Church
America owes an eternal
debt of gratitude to the
thousands of Christian teach-
ers in our public schools.
Though limited by law on
what they can legally do'in the
classroom, Christian teachers
are able to.impart Christian
moral and .ethical standards
simply by their presence in
the schools and by the lives
they practice before the stu-
Some liberals have accused
Christian teachers of "boot-
legging"'Christianity into the
classrooms. Many courageous
Christian teachers go ahead
and weave some Biblical
principles into lessons or
activities of the day.
Humanistic liberals accuse
such' teachers of being two-
faced hypocrites. They say
that Christians are to obey the
laws of the land.
But the outlawing of Bible
reading and prayer in the
schools was never made a law
of the land by. the U.S. Senate
or.Congress. It was done by a
Judicial decree by the Su-
preme Court of the United
States. Thus, the Supereme
Court usurped the authority of
the Congress and took upon
itself legislative authority.
Therefore, such Christian
teachers are not violating the
law of the land. They are
simply ignoring a decree by
the Supreme Court which had
no authority to make such a
ruling in the beginning.
And, for. those who believe in
the Bible, there is a higher law
than any men may make. That
is the law of God.
The Great Commission
charged Christians to go'into
all the world and preach the
gospel to EVERY. CREA-
TURE. This commission fur-
ther charges Christians to
teach "them to observe all
things whatsoever I have
commanded you." This is a
divine mandate from. God
which supercedes any man-
date created by man. There-
fore, Christian teachers who
inject Christian principles and
teachings to boys and girls are
not only not hypocites but they
are simply courageous follow-
ers of the God of creation.
Remember in Acts' 5 how
that the man-made "authori-
ties" of the day imprisoned
the early' apostles. because
they were following the man-
date of the Great Commission.
When they were brought be-
fore the council, the high
priest reminded them that
they had been forbidden to
teach in this name.
"We -ought 'to obey God
rather than men" answered
Peter and the other apostles.
Why not-turn to Acts 5:29-42

schools merit combat pay.

enterprise system which has made this
country great enough to do what it-has
done in the world over the years.
Thomas said students today need to
be taught how free enterprise has built
the nation. "Many feel business has
exploited the nation but the truth needs
to be spread that there is a thin profit in
private business. This thin profit is the
incentive to run a business in a manner
which is beneficial to the customer or
the business soon dies", Thomas said.

into this condition and it is not going to
be corrected overnight. Our present

doesn't recognize a one of them."
Thomas declared that America was
in the "hang-over" period after 50
years of debauchery with our economic
future. "When the hang-over is finished

A Great Bank Gives
Some Great Investment Advice.
Don't bet on the horses. Mutual Funds. Precious Gems.
Or tax shelter gimmicks.
.Why take .the market roller coaster ride with your.
money and your future when Florida National offers
. two high-yield alternatives-the All Savers Certificate
and the Individual Retirement Account. Both backed
by the strength and stability of a great statewide bank.
Our All Savers Certificate is a safe, tax-free
investment that takes only $500 to start.You earn the
highest yields and get up to $2,000 tax-free income
on a joint return. There's more.
Invest in a solid retirement future with an IRA from
Florida National. Choose either a fixed or variable
rate and take advantage of great tax breaks while
watching your money pyramid. A $25 minimum
deposit opens your IRA and there's no service charge
or fee. We can even arrange to have your
contribution transferred from your savings or checking
account every month.
If your existing IRA or pension fund isn't earning
today's high rate, consider rolling it over into the secu-
rity of a Florida National IRA. Each makes the most
of your investment and is insured up to $100,000 by the
FDIC. Not everyone offers this important protection.
So take some advice from the investment experts
at Florida National. Open an IRA or All Savers
Certificate-or both. They're safe, risk-free investments
from Florida's great banking institution. Florida
National Bank. Why take chances with something as
valuable as your future?

"About 15 percent of all
pesticides sold are purchased
for home use." Most cases of
accidents involving pesticides
occur in and around homes,
and a child is most often the
victim. We are now moving
into the time of the year when
pesticides will be widely used.
Safe use of these materials
cannot be overstressed.
You can control pests in
your home and garden safely
if you use pesticides properly.
To effectively control insects

must be correctly diagnosed.
There is no "wonder-chemi-

pests that plague you. First,
identify the pest or pests to be
controlled. Then, choose the
safest chemical that Will con-
trol the pest effectively.
Read the pesticide label and
follow all directions exactly as
written. Read the label every
time the pesticide is used.
Always be aware of cautions
such as!"keep out of the reach
of children." If the label says
to wear protective clothing or
gloves, obtain these or better
yet look for a less poisonous
Use the proper pesticide at
the proper time and at the
recommended rate to control
a specific pest: Measure the
chemical accurately because
minute quantities will usually
control the pest. The recom-

This is how accidents occur.

Committee Meeting Today
To Discuss Rock Removal Proposal
A permit application to remove rock
shelves from four sections of the
Apalachicola River will be discussed by
the Army Corps of Engineers and the
State'b Department of Environmental
Regulation (DER) today at a meeting
of the Apalachicola River Committee at
8:00 A.M., CT (9:00 A.M., ET) in the
Courtroom of the Calhoun County
Courthouse in Blountstown.
Hugh McClellan, Director of Permit-
ting,, and Mike Eubanks, Corps of
Engineers Mobile, Alabama Office, and
Pam McVety, DER Assistant Secre-
tary, are expected to explain why this
project is being reconsidered after it
was rejected by the State in 1974.
The rock shelves which occur in four
locations along a 13-mile stretch below
the Jim Woodruff Dam at Chatta-
hoochee reportedly have been interfer-
ing with navigation on the Apalachicola
which has an authorized channel depth
of nine feet. Since installation of
so-called "training dikes" in 1971, the
channel has been maintained at nine
feet about 80 percent of the time.
Except for the drought year of 1981, the
channel has been maintained at a depth
of seven feet 100 percent of the time
according to Corps data.
Ms. McVety announced at the 'Janu-
ary 19 meeting of the Tri-Rivers
Waterway Development Association
that, unlike 1974, the State had not
identified any major problems with the
proposed project, and that the only
serious obstacle to its approval might
be objections from local governments
along the Apalachicola River.
The River Committee, which is
chaired by General Robert L. Howell,
Franklin County Clerk of Circuit Court,
also is expected to discuss legislation
now under consideration by .the House
and Senate Natural Resources commit-
tees which would make optional to the
Department of Environmental Regula-
tion the presently mandated consulta-
tion and input of local governments in
DER review of Corps projects.
* In addition to the Chairman, General
Howell, members of the Apalachicola
River Committee are: Vice Chairman
Jack Summers of Liberty County:
Bobby Varnum, Calhoun County; Doug
Birmingham, Gulf County; and Alva
Mercer, Jackson County. Each of
these members are commissioners of
their respective counties.

Seniors Making Changes

organization that is making
changes, and these changes
are affecting the lives of many.
citizens aged 60 plus.
On February 1 the Senior
Citizens Association began
serving frozen meals that are
prepared at a regional kitchen
in Tallahassee. Not the typical
"T.V. 'dinner", these meals'
are fresh, tasty, and meet
one-third of the RDA for a
person aged 60 plus. Com-
ments from both Wewa-
hitchka and Port St. Joe
indicate that these hot lunches
are good. Ms. Flavelle Brock,
Meal Site Manager at Wewa-
one is really enjoying mthem,
a statement echoed by Ms.
Martha Jackson, Meal Site
Manager for Port St. Joe.
Brenda Moore, Project Di-
rector, expresses excitement
about this new concept in food
preparation. "There was,
some concern initially about
serving the frozen dinners, but
after talking with our partici-
pants last week I feel that this
is going to be the answer for
us." Mrs. Moore went on to
say, "Because of the relative-
ly short amount of time it
takes to prepare these meals
(thirty minutes) we are not
having a problem with left-
not here, ana ot course if
someone comes in late we can
quickly prepare and serve
them a hot lunch."
Mrs. Moore would like to
remind Gulf County citizens
aged 60 plus that the Senior
Citizen Association, through
its Community Care for the
Elderly program, is providing
free medical transportaiton.
"This is a relatively new
program for Gulf County, and
our citizens have not been
using the service", said Mrs.
Moore. For more information
about this service or any of the
services provided by the
Senior Citizens Association,
The date of the annual
meeting of the Gulf County

Union has been changed from
February 18 until one week

Senior Citizens Program
Outlined for Rotarians
Members of the Senior
Citizens Association are very
happy and satisfied with their
new pre-packaged frozen
meals, Brenda Moore,. direc-
tor of the service told the
Rotary Club last Thursday.
The Senior Citizens pro-
gram offers a hot, nutritious
meal to more than 140 people
age 60 and over in Gulf County
Monday through Friday. Re-
cently, they changed from a
.'catered meal service to the
frozen meals, prepared, fro-
zen and distributed from a
central kitchen in Tallahas-
see. There were misgivings at
first that the meals would be
- less than appealing because
they were frozen, but Moore
said such fears have been
Here in Gulf County, the
program operates two meal
serving sites, one here in Port,
St. Joe and one in Wewahitch-
ka. Both are using the new
meal service, which saves the
organization about 60 cents
per each meal served in
addition to providing more
uniform portions, and a great-
er flexibility over the number
of meals served each day.
Mrs. Moore said 'that in
addition to the meals served at
the central sites, the program
also delivers several meals to
shut-ins each day, giving the
people who cannot get out a
contact with the outside world
as well as making sure they
get at least one nutritious
meal each day..
In addition to the meal
service, the program provides
many social and recreational
activities to the senior citizens
also. "They start arriving at
the meal sites around Q:30
every morning and partici-
pate. in games, crafts and
other. activities until dinner
time", Mrs. Moore said.
The program also provides
a service of providing trans-
portation for. those who have
no way to travel for necessary
services such as trips to the
doctor, drug store, grocery
store and even on shopping
trips. "Several of. our. clients
cannot, should not or have no
way to drive themselves on
these errands", Mrs. Moore
At present, the service has
15 people on the payroll
throughout the county. Many
of these people are workers
with the Green Thumb pro-
gram, which provides activi-
ties for retirees at a minimum
wage. "We will be losing these
soon'", Mrs. Moore said, "due
to money cut-backs. What we
need now are volunteers to
take up some of this slack with
this program which is so
needed among many of our
Mrs. Moore said the donated
