The veteran Legislator, who is new to
Gulf County, spoke briefly on the coming
session of the Legislature, which gets

position of Northwest Florida, which seemed
to loose a House member-or two at every

light, Thompson pledged himself to, "Make

Wan ts Door, Audio Monitor, Smoke Alarm, Now!
F"ire Marshall Scores JailAg'ain
Conflicting demands from two separate state
agencies now has the Gulf County Commission and
Sheriff Ken Murphy scratching their heads over
what to do about the jail facilities in order.to have
it. come in compliance with a recent wave of,
ii*spections by the state's Department of Corre-
What originally started out as a complaint by
the DOC about appearances and some facilities at
tie jail, has erupted into a full-blown report,'four
pages long, from both the DOC and the State Fire
Marshall, who says the jail needs extensive
changes in order to comply with the fire code.
- Built almost completely with steel and
concrete, the Fire Marshall is now calling for such
items as fire walls with two hour ratings between
the offices and jail sections of the building.
-- Much of the major changes must be made by
August, according to the report, but the
Commission has decided they cannot meet this
deadline and is attempting to buy time by doing
-what they can and reporting that progress will
made on the other items as soon as the County is
.. Immediately, the county will install smoke
alarms in the building, a rear door and a listening
device in the cell areas, so the prisoners can be
monitored at all times.
County Commission Billy Branch said the
county has had a new rear door purchased for
several months, but the Department of Correc-
tions wants it in one location and the Fire Marshall
wants it in another. "If they can decide where the
door should be, we'll put it in. I guess we should
have gone ahead and installed it when we got it
rather than ask for their input to the matter"..
Sheriff Ken Murphy has some reservations
about the audio devices being placed in the cell
areas. The devices are recommended by DOC as a
means of monitoring the activities of the prisoners
in order to prevent any harm coming to them from
self-inflicted or accidental means. "It would seem
to. me this, would be an invasion of privacy",
Murphy said. "If they. want it in, we'll put it in,
Tuesday night, the Commission agreed to go
ahead and install the smoke alarms and the audio
devices and advise the DOC the county is ready to
install the rear door.
Branch advised the Commission that court-
house maintenance people had already made eight
or nine of the corrections suggested by DOC and he
recommended the County dicker with DOC over
the other items on the punch list.
All of this started Tuesday -night when
Sheriff's Lieutenant Jack Davilla told the Board
the DOC inspectors were in the jail Monday and
insisted o0r the three items being put into place
immediately. Davilla said, "He saw the improve-
ments which have already been made, but he
warned the other improvements must be made
As for the rear door, Sheriff Murphy said,
"The fire marshall wants a door in the rear center
of the building or one on each side. The DOC hasn't
decided yet where they want it."
The Commission decided Tuesday to adopt a
resolution calling on the Legislature to approve a
jail operation which would treat prisoners
humanely and safely, but would allow the "frills"
to be at the discretion of the county. The resolution
will be sent to the Gulf County delegation and to
each county commission in the state for
presentation to their delegations.

Drinking Age Needs
Hiking to 21
Florida's Legislators go back to
Tallahassee in a little more than two
*weeks to start this year's session of
One of the first heavy questions
:which will hit them smack in the
:face when they walk in the front door
- is the question of whether or-not to
raise the legal drinking age of
Florida young adults from age 18 to
. This question really shouldn't be
a problem with the Legislature to
decide with any difficulty since the
polls - even those run by college
age groups - point to the fact that
the people of Florida favor raising
the legal age to621.
b Even the young adults affected
by the change, are in favor of raising
the legal age to 21. According to a
poll taken by the students of Florida
State University, 58 percent favor
raising the legal drinking age.
S; Given that information, we

i public appearance a little over a

sion that he favored the age of 19 as a

to the poll, it doesn't.
If we had our way, the'
Legislature would out-law 'drinking

There's no getting around tl
fact that drinking drivers are a reI
menace to the highways of Florida
A story in the Panama City New
Herald last week pointed out tha
drinking young- drivers had at
counted for 18 out of 22 traffic a(
cidents in Bay County thus far in th
year and that other statistics show
a direct cause and effect in drinking
drivers in their county.
We're sure the same statistic
hold true for us.
If traffic problems were the onl
problems associated with drinking
and particularly youthful drinking
we might not have a legitimate argi
ment over whether or not to restrict
its sale and use. But, this isn't th
case. Use and abuse of liquor among
young people causes more problem
than probably any other one sing]
It's true, we don't drink. It is nc
true that we take the position tha
what is good for us has to be good fo
everyone. There is too muc
evidence to the' harm that drinking
does to the youth and their elders.
We feel there is no question at a
but what drinking by youth i
something to be discouraged. W
hope the Legislature listens to th
people of Florida, and the youth, an
hikes the legal drinking age to 21. A
least that's one tiny step towar

in assembly and, Mr. Hall
would not have anything to do

After last week, I really saw how
tenuous that low-cost agricultural loan
is. It only reinforced my.surprise that
farmer's are able to get some of the
loans they get.

the drain, being able to get a crop

CPR Techniques to Students
Statistics reveal that in the
United States 650,000 people
die from heart attack each
year- 350,000 of these die,
outside the hospital. In the
face of these alarming statis-
tics, Superintendent Walter
Wilder has directed the imple-
mentation of a CPR training
program for high school stu-
dents at both Wewahitchka
High School and Port St. Joe
High School. The program
began in the summer of 1981
when four teachers from the
Gulf County School System
successfully completed the
instructors course necessary
to provide training in CPR.
Sharon Gaskin, Tweeta Gas-
kin, Gary Speights and Bar-
bara Eells successfully com-
pleted the course and are
presently implementing this
CPR program in the Gulf
County School District.

they would approach others on
the street and see what could
be worked out.
In the meantime, the two
asked that their street be
placed on the paving priority
list, since there were at least
10 families living on the short
street. After a: period of
discussion, the Board decided
to place Barbara 'Drive in
their number four position in
priority, but warned the two it
still would probably be at least
two years before the street
was paved. In the meantime,
the Commission said they
would have the Road Depart-
ment people take a look at the,
situation for temporary relief.
Deciding to get into the road
paving business again, has
opened a can of worms for the
Commission. The question is,
who gets their street paved?
. At the last meeting of the
Board, Commissioner Jimmy,
Gortman remarked the north
end of' the county has been
getting short-changed in the
paving business. Chairman
Branch remarked the north"
half of the county received the
larger share of the recent
bond issue paving program,.
the'last paving done by the
Gortman was certain
Branch was wrong and offered
to buy the chairman dinner if
he was right.
Tuesday night, Branch
brought out the figures on the
paving, which showed Dis-
tricts one and two received:

Gortman then made a mo-
tion that the county designate
the paving of two short streets
in Whispering Pines Subdivi-
sion and. the, extension of
Dairy Road near Wewahitch-
ka as one project and, desig--
nate it as number three

The Board then agreed to

ber four priority.
Gortman triedtd6 carry the
stipulations further by asking
that Pine Street in Wewa-
hitchka be in fifth place, the
street behind Sheriff Parker's
home as sixth, south'Canal
Drive in Overstreet as number
seven. Gortman's motion was
defeated when a tie' vote
resulted from his motion.
Gortman arid Birmingham
voted ."yes" and Owens -and
Branch voted "no".

Mosquito Control director,

the entire state is expecting a
bad mosquito year. "With all
the rain we have had and the
lack of cold weather, we have
all been told we can expect to

,year", Kent said.
The director said Gulf Coun-
ty would get into its spraying

drivers first, but we should be
able to do that in two or three

Caladiums Popular Summer Annual
Tropical Colorful Foliage-Plants Thrive In All Parts of Florida
BY ROY LEE CARTER
County Extension Director
Caladiums are one of the
most popular summer annuals
in Florida. They are colorful,
tropical foliage plants, that
can be grown in all areas of
the state. Caladiums add a
cool look to the summer flower
garden, and they are relative-
ly easy to grow. My informa-
'tion for this article was
provided by Extension Horti-
culture Specialist, Dr. Robert
There are two types of
caladiums available, those
with fancy leaves, and those
with lance leaves. The fancy
leaved caladium is the more
popular. Its leaves are large
and somewhat rounded.
The lance type caladium has
narrow elongated leaves, and
the entire plant is somewhat
smaller. The colors of caladi-
ums vary widely, from crim-
son red, to all shades of pink
and even snow white.
As afore stated, caladiums
are easy to grow, but you need
to follow a few basic guide-
lines. Choose a flower bed with
moderately rich, well prepar-
ed soil. Soil for caladiums
should be porous and contain
organic matter. Make sure the
site has good drainage. The
caladiums grow best in a
moist, but not soggy soil. Too
much water causes roots to
