PLANS FOR PLACING SPOIL
Plans were revealed for placing
part of the fill along Highway 98 in
Highland View to rebuild that eroded
road shoulder and provide a buffer for
the highway from the .bay.
Broaching a touchy subject, Gonot
suggested some of the, fill could be
placed off St. Joe Paper Company, to
renourish Bird Island.
George Tapper, chairman of the
Port Authority, explained permission
was denied several years ago to place
more spoil on the island, but since that
time the Audobon Society has gone to
bat for rebuilding the island, which was
a favorite nesting spot for water birds,
Douglas Bailey, a representative of
Game and Fresh Water Fish Commis-
sion, liked the idea, remarking, "It's
seldom we get anything out of a dredge

keep from losing as much as possible.

the local port would be particularly
attractive to shippers because the

Dead Lakes Board Wants to Free River
Commission Votes4-1 to Ask forPermission to Remove Tumbler Dam
Carrying out their end of an agreement
reached in a court hearing three weeks ago,
the Dead Lakes Water Management Commit-
tee asked the County Commission Tuesday to
approve replacing three of the four removed
drawdown structure gates in the dam.
All four of the gates were removed back
in March of this year. The gates were
removed after they were sabotaged several
times and threatened the water supply
downstream from the dam.
The Dead Lakes committee agreed in
a court hearing before Judge Larry Bodiford
in August to replace the gates, which were the
subject of a mandamus hearing, brought
about by Monroe Sullivan of Panama City.
Attorneys for both, sides, Jerry Gerde for
Sullivan and Hentz McClellan for the Dead
Lakes Board, worked out the agreement to
replace the three gates until the Committee
decided whether or not they wished to seek
legal permission from state agencies to
remove the Dead Lakes dam and remove all
obstacles to the Chipola River flowing freely
to the coast.
In a meeting Monday afternoon of this
week the Dead Lakes Committee agreed,
although not unanimously, to ask the state
Water Management Committee and the
Department of Environmental Regulation for
permission to remove the tumbler dam at the
south end of the Dead Lakes. Such action
would make whether or not the gates should
be left in the drawdown structure a moot
Speaking for the Board in announcing
their decision to ask for permission to remove
the dam, Jim Bozeman stated, "The dam has
Jerry Kelly, another member of the
Board voted "no" to the question, saying he
thinks the action is too hasty. He advocates
more caution in the decision to remove the
The Dead Lakes committee has contend-
ed throughout the lawsuit process since last
fall they are the authority over the waters of
the lakes. The instigators of the suit against
the Committee claim the Water Management
District and DER has authority over that
body of water. Presumably this is why the
Dead Lakes Committee has applied for
permission from these two bodies to remove
Built some 28 years ago, the dam was the.
product of nearly 10 years of lobbying and.
hard work by a group of Wewahitchka
citizens and county officials. It was built with
a grant and loan because the fishing in the.
lake wasn't what it used to be. The Committee.
is now advocating tearing the dam out.

Whatever happens to the dam, it will.
probably be laced with more emotional
action. For at least 60 to 90 days, the situation
should be pretty static, as members of the
Dead Lakes Committee feel it will take that
long for a decision to come down from the two
state agencies who have been petitioned for
permission to tear out the dam.

Dr. Tom Gibson Gives
Property to County
Dr. Tom Gibson, a retired Optometrist here in Port
St. Joe, made certain people of Gulf County will always
have an access to the beaches in the Beacon Hill area
S Dr. Gibson deeded a piece of property he owned in
the Beacon Hill vicinity to the County to be maintained in
public ownership as a public access to the beaches. The
property Is on the Gulf side of Highway 98 and runs from
the Highway right-of-way to the water.
Much of the property on the water side of Highway
98 is privately owned and is subject to sale at some time
in the future and removed from public use. Dr. Gibson's
gift to the County makes it certain there will always be a
way for people to get to the water without owning a piece
of property at the beaches.
The County Commission accepted the gift, of course.

My Uncle Ernest was a
strange man in some respects.
He named all his children
after cities and states. There
is Utah, Wyoma, Denver,
Harris and Virginia. I'm not
sure what state "Harris" is in
(the town, not the boy), but
rest assured, there is one.
There are also two deceased
children, Texas and Colorado.
Uncle Ernest was also a fool
about honey. He kept five bee
hives on the back part of his
property right next to a fence
bordering a wooded area
which was flush with wild
growth- the substance bees
need to produce the strong,'
dark, delicious honey we loved
Every summer when the
hives were full of honey, Uncle
Ernest would rob them. He
had a very unconventional
way of taking the honey from
the bees. He wore no pro-
tective clothing. "The bees
won't sting me," he stated.
c A MAN'S WORLD
Robbing the Bee Hive
VSHAB Pt r v ' .
"They. respect me and know
I'm' their master; they
wouldn't sting me for any-
thing." He had me convinced.
And he was right. I watched
in awe and at a considerable
distance summer after sum-
mer as he quietly and gently
took the honey from the hives.
Bees would sometimes com-
pletely cover his head, arms,
and body, and not once did he
indicate the first one had
stung him. This. feat was
awfully impressive to me and
all the kids in the vicinity. I
was impressed to the point
that I wanted to try my hand
at robbing the hives. I reason-
ed that I was as much a
master as my uncle was.
After months of begging,
pleading and worrying him to
no end, he finally consented to
let me help him.. He gave me
these specific instructions:
"Whatever you do, don't slap
at the bees. If one does sting
you, reach very gently and
flick him off with your finger.
If you slap one, 'you will make
the whole hive mad and they
will attack us." I assured him
that I understood and would
comply, to stingdoom if neces-
The big day finally came.
We approached the hives and
in no time bees were begin-
ning to cover me. Suddenly
one stung me on my left arm
just below the elbow. Remem-
bering the instructions, I
gently reached down and with
my forefinger flicked him off.
Then,another one stung me on
my neck. I flicked him off.
Then it was one after another
until I thought I was indeed
going to panic. I kept my
word, however, and continued
to flick as easily as possible.
It was about that time I
heard a SPAT, SPAT, SPAT
and the unmistakable sound of
running footsteps receding
toward the house. I turned
slowly and saw Uncle Ernest
running, arms flailing, toward
the house. It was the fastest I
had ever seen him move.
"Uncle Ernest, Uncle Er-
.nest," I screamed! "Come
back, Uncle Ernest, come

was his muffled reply. -

after that: What there was,
was store bought. I still enjoy
the taste of honey and eat it
when I can find some that is
good. Uncle Ernest, however,
never ate another drop. He
also never attempted to rob
another bee hive...neither

From the Tallahassee.Democrat
'- The Chipola-Apalachicola River sy-
stem is in the first stages of contamina-
tion, a Florida State University scien-
tist told about 250 Panhandle citizens
Wednesday night in Blountstown.
"I would say there's no crisis- no
reason .for everybody to get upset,"
said Robert Livingston, a Florida State
University marine biology professor.
"But that doesn't mean you shouldn't
be concerned. You do have a problem."
The crowd had gathered to hear
Livingston's conclusions on recent
reports of cancer and pollution.
The problem, he said, is that two
battery-recycling plants, pesticide
spraying and other human activities
have led to higher-than-normal levels of
lead and pollution in the river system.
Livingston described the metals,
including lead and cadmium, as
"deadly metals" that can lead to
kidney and brain diseases. But Living-
ston said the state and federal data he
had reviewed showed no link between
the metals and about 20 cancer cases
reported recently at Altha, which is
near the Chipola.
Livingston and staff members from

Florida Defenders of the Environment
and the Florida Public Interest Re-

weeks gathering information about the

on the Chipola.

group of local officials from six
Counties bordering the Apalachicola

known as United Metals to be discharg-

"I'm more concerned about Sapp
than I am about United Metals,"

Once again, I would like to take the opportunity to thank each and everyone of you for your
vote in the September Primary. Your continued confidence and faith in me makes me all .the more
determined to continue representing you in the best manner possible.
With a campaign that has been clean in every way, I have been uplifted by the, number of Mr.
Whitfield's supporters who have expressed their intention to support my candidacy. I continue to
Solicit their support, and welcome the opportunity to represent all of the people of Gulf County.
One of the finer aspects of the American system is that we all learn so much from each other dur-
One question that I am being asked most often is, what are the major differences
between myself and my opponent? The fact of my experience as a city commissioner, county
commissioner and independent businessman first comes to mind; but, in my opinion, our most
significant difference is in the area of community involvement.
For years,' long before entering politics, I have been working with young people as a
volunteer. Concern for theyoung is an investment in the future of Gulf County! Programs like little
league, scouting and the March of Dimes help to shape the minds and bodies of our young people
in a clean and healthy way. These are the areas of my records where I am most proud of having
Also, I feel that being a parent gives me the kind of perspective that is more in touch with the
working families of our county. For working parents to try and raise two children in today's
ecorlomy is to share in a concern for the not too distant days ahead.
We are presently at a stage of development in Gulf County where stable negotiations with
prospective industries will determine-the economic future of our area. Proven leadership can
maintain this momentum, while planning inIa way that protects our valuable natural resources.
This is an area where I pledge to continue working so that our young people can stay here and find
more and better jobs.
Once again, I would like to thank everyone who is backing my bid for re-election, and to com-
pliment my opponent for making it a fine race. With Gulf Countians making the choice, I'm confi-.
dent that the best man for the job will emerge a winner.

first down.. It took the Waltoer
County squad the entire foui
downs to get the ball into the
end zone. Greg Brac kicked
the extra point after the
touchdown to give the Braves
their 13 points..
Early in the game, it looked
as if the Sharks had a long
night in store for the Braves.
Receiving the opening kick-
off, the Braves managed to
move the ball for only eight
yards to their own 29 before
they were forced to kick. But
the officials tossed their flag
and said the Sharks roughed
the kicker. The Braves took
over on their own 44 after the
penalty had been 'marked
down and on first play, Nate
Baldwin rambled up the' mid-
dle for eight yards. On the
tackle, he fumbled the ball
and Terry Woullard recovered
the ball for the Sharks.
After that one play, it was
mostly a stout defensive effort
for the Sharks, who didn't
record their initial first down
until about midway through
the second period.
Defensively, the Sharks had

Tips from Roy
for Fall Gardening
BY ROY LEE CARTER
SSeptember is the beginning
of the fall gardening season.
It's time to do just about
everything in your fall garden.
Things to consider are seed-
bed preparation and planting
of a vegetable garden and
annual flowers, general clean-
up of the home grounds,
preparation for overseeding

Extension Horticulturist Dr.
Robert J Black.

sun at leasthalf a day and stay
away from large trees. Tree

won't compete :
Hardy annuals, which will
survive cold weather, you can
plant in late September in-.
