County Commission Asked to Prohibit Fishing On Dead Lakes Bridge
What started out as a simple
job of putting a new back door

cost of a few hundred dollars
has expanded into a major
project which is taking some,
$5,000 to $6,000 just to plan.

Dixie Season Starts
The 1983 Dixie Youth Baseball season began Monday of
this week, as the first baseball of the official season was toss-
ed out in the Major and Minor Leagues. In addition to the Ma-
jor and Minor Leagues for children ages eight through 12, the
Pony League offers baseball for 13 and 14 year-olds.
All games are played in the baseball complex, located
between 10th and 8th Streets in Port St. Joe. The eight-week
schedule features baseball, every day of the week, Monday
through Friday, with night games Monday, Tuesday, Thurs-
day and Friday evenings, following the conclusion of the
There are 15 teams, with approximately 180 boys and
girls participating in this year's Dixie Youth program. The
Minor League consists of: Telco, Basic, Florida Bank,
Rotary, IGA, Saveway, and M.T.I. Six teams are involved in
the Major League: Ford Western, Boxer-Pate's, HardStars,
I.C.W.U.-836, Doziers and Krafties. The Pony League has two
teams: Railroad and Renfro.
The Dixie Youth program costs about $10,000-$12,000
each year to operate, with half of the cost derived from spon-
sors and registration fees. The remainder of the money is
raised through money-making projects such as raffles and
the concession stand. The baseball program is dependent
upon parent help and participation to ensure its continued
operation and success.
If you wish to see an afternoon of good baseball, go out
any afternoon at 5:30, and catch an exciting game of Dixie

The City of Port St. Joe and
the County has initiated talks
toward a possible joint ven-

hassle of having their vehicle

read, the law was jettisoned in the

THE SECRET OF becoming 130 to
140 years old is in the diet we eat,
according to this man who was being
interviewed. I didn't get his name and
when I learned he was only in his

And. when it was revealed that the

Who'd want to spend 120 years
eating nothing but wheat germ, herbs
and a handful of grass or two each day
only to find out that you couldn't live to
140 with this diet?
Who would give up a succulent
steak every now and then just to get to
live four or five years longer?
Nobody! At least nobody in their
20's or 30's or even their 40's would.
Who would give up a juicy apple pie
to get the opportunity to add a year or
two to their lifespan?
Nobody! Especially if you should
melt a piece of cheese on top or put on a
dollop or two of ice cream.
When you get right down to it, life
IS enjoying good things to eat and even
extra life without these little extras

LOOKING At THE NEW houses
going up all around us these days, we
can't help but be amazed at the change
in construction habits.
In the old days before the average
house cost more than a whole block of
houses used to cost, the average
house was considered to be built cheap
if it used plywood as sheeting. Now,
paper with a reflector side is the
common seating. Houses were for-
merly built almost as sturdy in just the
frame as they ae now built in the entire
I was wondering the other day
about which of the homes being built
today would be known, 60, 70, 80 or 90
years from now as "Those stately old
homes of the past", like the homes built
around the turn of the century were?
What homes can be "modernized" by
the handy-men of the future? What
homes can be reclaimed in the future
and be "rehabilitated" by enterprising
young couples wishing to save some
money by wishing to reclaim an old
jewel of the past?
I don't know whether to feel sad or
glad for the young couples of the future.
If they have the same tendencies as
their forebearers,. they will greatly
miss the same opportunity. By the
same token they will not be bothered
with a nagging or imaginative wife who
approaches her ever-suffering husband
with the suggestion, "Can't you see
what we can do with that old house?
Why, for just a few hundred thousand
dollars, we can modify it to solar
energy and capture the unique archi-
tecture of yesterday in our living
manner of today".

dist Church in Port St. Joe,
Saturday for the annual "Day
"Day Apart" is an in-depth
service designed to encourage
United Methodist Women to
focus all their faculties on
divine worship as an occasion.
for responding to biblical
imperatives and nuturing de-
eper spiritual life.
Because of a family emer-
geicy which prevented the
president, Mrs. W. F. Willi-
ams, Jr., of Graceville, from
attending, and the continued
illness of Mrs. V. Ray Mixon,
vice-president, from attend-
ing, Mgityllis Altstaetter of
the host church welcomed the'
group arid'presided over the
brief business session. The
Reverend Spikes of the host
church gave the invocation.
Two past district presidents,
Mirs. Higdon Swatts, Sr.: of
Port St. Joe and Mrs. Douglas
Rhodes of St. Andrews, were
recognized. Carmelita Eldrie
of Sneads, soloist for the
service was introduced.
Tn conformity with the
theme "Through It All--God",
Alva Martin of Chattahoo-
chee, led, the worship service
using the topic "Our Relation-
ship With, God"..
At the outset she challenged
the group to cleanse their
hearts and reminded them of
God's question to Adam and
Adam's response. The group
was ad i*hed not to hide
frontn G F 4ther people or
themselves. She continued by
comparing people with.
sheep- helpless, unable to
%care for themselves, easily'
frightened, in need of special
care from the shepherd. She.
stated that God will tend, care
and cultivate our lives if we
only trust Him. She cautioned
about looking for the easy way
out and being too concerned
about our possessions- let-
ting that interfere with our
relationship with God. Tough-
ness- resilience-. comes
through discipline, struggle
and overcoming difficulties,
Life was described as a
series of mountains and val-
leys. There must be both- not
one or the other.
At noon, a sack lunch and
cookies were enjoyed in the
fellowship hall of the church.
on resumption of the meet-
ing after lunch, a collection
was taken for missions.
Resuming the program, the
speaker explained the unique
functions of the rod and staff--
to discipline and protect.
The Christian's enemies,
she said, are much like the
sheep's, so subtle we don't
'know they're around. We only
see the results!
In conclusion, she urged
that we have an inner aware-
ness of God, be open, don't
hide from God. See Him as the
loving, caring shepherd. She
asked that we remember
God's admonishment to Peter
"Feed my sheep" which is the
, purpose of the United Metho-
-Several "solos in keeping
with the theme, sung at
appropriate intervals by Car-
melita Eldrie, added greatly
to the reverence and effective-
ness of the service.

ther and personal difficulties

Adds to Value of Your Home
Selecting the Best Lawn Grasses A Matter of Preference
BY ROY LEE CARTER
Several hundred dollars can
be added to the value of your
home by the presence of a
beautiful lawn. It is worth
:-::.--even more in terms of plea-
sure and pride it affords all
:members of the family. On the
Other hand, it can be a mess if
S the proper grass is not select-
S.ed; planted and maintained.
S, The best lawn grass, is a
matter of personal opinion and
preference. There are advan-
: tages and disadvantages for
I every grass. What one person
considers an asset may be.
a liability to another. My
information for this article
wsa provided by Extension
Horticulturist Dr. 'Robert J.
In shaded areas, some gras-
S ses grow well and'others grow
poorly. St. Augustine grass
will tolerate a high amount of
S: ..shade, while Bermuda grows
S' best in full sun.Zoysiagrass is
a "slowpoke" in regard to rate
of growth while Bermuda is a
rapid vigorous grower.
A fast-growing grass may
be desired when establishing a
S neH lawn, but this apparent
advantage turns into a disad-
vantage when it comes time to
Some grasses withstand foot
traffic' or wear better than
others. Bermuda grass is
unsurpassed in this respect,
with centipede being a poor
choice for an active family.
Bahia produces a very dur-
able sod which is able to
withstand heavy traffic.
Color and texture of the
leaves are important features
of lawn grasses. Some, such as
improved Bermudas and Zoy-
sias are fine and as soft as
silk. St. Augustine, Bahia,
Centipede and Carpet grass'
are more coarse. The fine one,
improved Bermudas in parti-
cular, require more care..In
color, lawn grasses' range
from yellow-green (Centi-.
pede) to bluish-green (Zoysia
and improved Bermudas).
Weeds can be controlled in
most lawn grasses grown
here, if the right chemical is
used and if it is applied in,'
correct amounts at the proper
time. It is generally easier to
control weeds in Bermuda and
Zoysia, than in St. Augustine
While no lawn grass is free
*pf insect and disease pests,
some seem to be more suscep-
tible than others. This is
clearly brought to your atten-
tion if you have ever had

may need as many as twelve
fertilizations yearly while
most others are perfectly
content with only two to three.
St. Augustine grass is the
one most likely to stay green
during the winter. Centipede
and Bermuda are generally
brown or straw colored for
several months during winter
in northwest Florida.,
If your home is near the

problem, a grass having salt
tolerance should be used. St.
