Arrest Made In March
Postal workers, Johnny Linton, left, and

TRIM notices from Property Appraiser,
Joyce Williams, center, as the notices were
put in the malls on Monday of this week.
.The TRIM notices went out to every
Gulf County property owner, advising him
of what his proposed taxes would be for the
coming fiscal year and compared them with
taxeslevied last year.
Approximately 12,000 notices were sent
out to property owners in the county, as
required by Florida law. Property owners
receive the TRIM notices to enable them to
look for mistakes in their property assess-
ments before the tax notices are sent out.
Property owners have until September 8
to file any complaints or objections to their
assessment in order for the complaints to be
heard for the up-coming tax year, If
complaints are not filed by that time,
property owners have no recourse if an
error has been made.
Forms for filing objections, which ,will
be heard by a special equalizatloo board,
are available in the office of the Appraiser in
the Courthouse here in Port St. Joe. The
Appraiser has said her office will handle
complaints of errors in mathematics on' the
notices. Any attempt .to get assessments
lowered or raised will have to go before the
equalization board for arbitration.
Arson Attempt O
Gulf' County Sheriff's Department officers
and agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco
and Firearms, have arrested Thomas Bruce
Husband; age 26, of Wewahitchka, on a Federal
warrant charging him with possession of a
destructive device. ,
Husband is the owner and operator of the
Good Spirits II liquor lounge, located on U.S. 98,
west of Port St. Joe.
On March 3, of this year, an incendiary
device was recovered from the attic of the
lounge. The device, consisting of 25 one-gallon
plastic jugs, half-filled with gasoline and
equipped with igniters, were designed to explode
and burn, and would have in all probability have
caused the complete destruction of the premises.
The device was accidentally discovered by a
workman and was deactivated by the Explosive
Ordinance Detachment team from Tyndall Air
According to Sheriff Murphy, the arrest was
made Tuesday morning, by Investigator Charlie
Hill of the Sheriff's Departmnent and agents of the
ATF department. The arrest came after an
intensive investigation of the attempted incendi-
ary last March.
"A joint investigation by the Gulf County
Sheriff's Department and ATF has been
conducted over the past few months", Sheriff
Murphy said. "The investigation has now been
completed. The cooperative efforts of the Gulf
County Sheriff's Department and ATF, and the
determination of Investigator Charlie Hill and
Agent Morris Pelham were instrumental in
bringing this case to a satisfactory conclusion. I
am very proud of the cooperation we received
from ATF, the State Fire Marshall's office and
the State Beverage Department", Murphy said.
Husband was booked in the Gulf County jail
and later transferred to Pensacola, where he will,
also be charged with attempted arson. he was
given first appearance before Federal Magis-
trate Robert L. Crongeyer, Jr., and bond was set.'
TRANSFERRED TO PENSACOLA
The firebombs were located in the attic of
the building on a Thursday afternoon, when a
carpenter returned -to the building to recover

, some tools he had left while doing some work a
few days previously. The carpenter discovered
the incendiary devices in the loft of the building
when he went up there to get his tools.
The devices were plastic gallon milk jugs
containing gasoline and connected by electric
wires attached to ignition devices. The entire
collection of devices was attached to a timer
which was set to go off at 2:00 a.m., the following

Collection Drive Today
The American Red Cross will' be conducting a
blood collection drive today in the Gulf Pines Hospital,.
according to Rand Wortman, Hospital Administrator.
Red Cross is the supplier of whole blood to the
hospital for use by its patients. The blood is collected
through the public drives such as the one being
conducted today. The drives are conducted here in Gulf
County three or four times a year, to maintain .fresh
SMost ost hospitals in the Panhandle use the Red Cross
.blood services, with headquarters in Mobile, Alabama,-
to insure their blood supplies are properly handled,
tested and stored. Wortman said the service is
especially valuable with the current scare of the AIDS
disease which has the entire nation concerned. "Using'
Red Cross supplies guarantees a supply of blood which
has been adequately tested for AIDS and other
diseases"', Wortman said.
The drive will be held in the Hospital conference'
room from 1:30 to 6:00 p.m., this afternoon. Wortman
said anyone from age 16 up to age 65, may donate
blood, if they have no blood related problems.
The last blood collection program held here in Port
St. Joe was in May, when 46 units were taken in toward
a goal of 70 units.

The older I grow the more I

sad, about my childhood. I'm
not sure, but it may be

my mid-life crisis and, folks,
The largest part of our
home life centered around
our mother. My father was a
provider and a hard working
man. He worked at the

the fields and around the
house. The domestic duties
were left entirely with my
mother. And she was .i

while doing them.
When I was older and more
inclined toward "stepping
out" I would grab her and
dance with her. She did not
believe in dancing, but she
always laughed and let me
waltz her around until she
was tired and out of breath
from the dancing and laugh-
ing. And there were other
things, to be sure.
There were many times
when my father would not let
us do certain things. If it was
something particularly im-

always count on Mother

The most unforgettable
thing I remember about my
mother happened in 1944 and
I was about five years old.
My oldest brother was off in
the war, fighting in the
Pacific. There was not much
talk about him, as I can
remember. One reason was
that news was hard to come
by. Letters he wrote some-
times took months to get
home, and there. were times
that they never knew if he
were dead or alive. To me it
seemed. as if there was no
particular concern, but this
was due mainly to my young
age. I realized one night just
how grave the situation real-
The first night I awoke it

the more I realized it was the
voice of my mother. When I
was fully awake I could hear
her well, and realized she
was praying and her prayer
was directed to God, plead-
ing for the life of my brother.
Her prayer was mixed with
sobs and tears, pleading for
help in a way only a loving
mother could pray.
I suddenly became fright-

Muscadine Grapes Are
Pop ular Backyard Fruit
BY ROY LEE CARTER
County Extension Director
The muscadine grape is
popular fruit that grows very
well here in Florida. It has
smaller leaves than bunch
grapes, and its fruit are
harvested singly, rather than
in bunches. These grapes can
be enjoyed fresh. and they
can also be used for home
wine-making. One of the nice
things about growing musca-
dine grapes in Florida is that
they're rarely bothered by
insects or diseases. My infor-
mation for this .article was
provided by Extension Fruit
Crops Specialist, Dr. Tom
Grapes will grow well on a
variety of soils, including
those recommended for cit-
rus. Fine sands, and upland
soils'with clay underlying at
about three feet are ideal.
You should avoid poorly
drained soils, such as muck
or marl. If the grapes are
grown on soil with very good
drainage, they should be set
in the ground deeper than
they were grown in the
nursery. And, on land with a
high water table, grapes
should be planted on raised
beds at the same depth they
were at in the nursery.
Muscadine grapes need to
be trellised. Two and three
wire systems are the most
common forms of trellising.
The first year, set a five foot
i stake next to each plant, and
i tie the stake permanently to
the top wire of the trellis. As
H shoots appear from the plant,
Select the healthiest shoot
':and tie it to the stake. Now
remove all other shoots. The
selected shoot will becomb
the trunk of the grape vine.
_. As it begins to grow, keep it
J1 straight by tying it to the
S 'stake in several places. Re-
2 move all base and lateral
h shoots often, but leave at
S! least one lateral shoot to
grow out each way on the
S bottom trellis wire, it n should
be cut off. This will encour-
fo r^ age later branching along the
or q''*' top wire.
7:00 p.m. CDT on Saturday,
the,20th of August, at the,
First Baptist Church of Pa-
nama City. I
All friends and relatives
are invited to attend ithe'
wedding and reception which
will follow at the Church
During the first year,
grapes should be fertilized
with a quarter pound of 6-6-6
or an 8-8-8 fertilizer, applied
in bands about a. foot away
from the plant, soon after
growth begins. Repeat appli-
cation in May, July and
September. Fertilizer rates
increase each year, but they
should never exceed six lbs.
per vine per year.
Weeds can sometimes be a
problem with muscadine
grapes. To get rid of weeds,
you can use a good herbicide,
or you can cultivate around
the plants. The muscadine
grape has a very shallow root
system, however, so be care-
ful when you're weeding
around the plants. Mulches
can be helpful in controlling
weeds, but be sure to leave a
circle of at least six inches
around each vine uncovered.
Grapes need a generous
supply of water to survive in
Florida. In fact, more first
year grapes die from a lack
of water than from any other
cause. Make sure the plant
receives about an inch and a
half of water every two
As I stated before, musca-
dine grapes are rarely bo-
thered by insects or diseases.
However, a spray program is
advised to protect plants
from possible damage by
black rot or bitter rot..
Spraying should begin when
the vines are in bloom, and
continue at regular two week
intervals until about a week
before the harvest.
Muscadine grapes mature
in August and early Septem-
ber. If you don't plan to use
them for jam, jelly or wine,
they should be picked from
the vine and stored at forty

safety of plastic lenses, com-
bined with the scratch resis-

even more popular as an
alternative to glass lenses.
Scratched plastic lenses
distort vision and
necessitate the replacement
of eyeglasses more frequent-

Children, teens and young
adults who tend to be a bit
careless with the care of
their glasses should certain-

Since strong lenses have an
added sensitivity to anything
on the .surface of the lens,
they are usually cleaned
more frequently and have a-
greater tendency to scratch.
People with occupations or
hobbies that subject their
glasses to flying particles,
such as dentists and carpen-

As a result of these service-

After the passage of the
"Veterans Health Care, Training
and Small Business Loan Act of
1982" (P.L. 97-72), veterans
who complain of Agent Orange-
-related problems are now con-
sidered for treatment irrespec-
tive of age or finances with the
same priority as former
prisoners of war.
Even though the VA con-
tends that P.L. 97-72 is being
' veterans all over the country
have reported that treatment is
still difficult to obtain at certain
VA medical centers because the
VA denied such claims on the
basis that they were not
"service-connected." The VA
definition of "service-
connected" maintains that a
disability must arise during
military service or within one
year after discharge. Since
studies of dioxin and Agent
Orange have established that
these agents have a delayed
effect, many of the health prob-
lems Vietnam veterans have ex-
perienced were not immediate-
The greatest sacrifice that
an American makes is in the ser-
vice of his country. While the.
Vietnram rera was1 a trying time
for the United States, political-
ly and emotionally, these men"
and women who so valiantly
served in Vietnam are often
"penalized" for having fought in
an unpopular war. Those
veterans who were exposed to
Agent Orange must be accord-
ed the same respect and treat-
ment that the VA offers to other
veterans and I have' conse-
quently co-sponsored legislation
which will aid these men and
Legislation has already been
enacted to instruct various
agencies to conduct studies on
the full effects on human beings
of Agent Orange. In the mean-
time, however, I have co-
sponsored H.R. 1961, a bill to
provide a presumption of ser-
vice connection for the occur-
rence of certain diseases related
to exposure to herbicides or
other environmental hazards or
conditions in veterans who serv-
ed in Southeast Asia during the
Vietnam era. These important
veterans should receive the
medical treatment they deserve
and hearings are currently being
held in Commitee. I believe it is
important to work toward the
passage of H.R. 1961.

Over the last few years, it
has become increasingly .ap-
parent that our veterans who
served in the Vietnam era have
experienced some severe side
effects from exposure to Agent
Orange, a herbicide or chemical
that kills or defoliates plants,
which the United States Air
Force sprayed in South Vietnam
from 1962 to 1971. The purpose
of the spraying was to defoliate
jungle -growth and destroy
enemy crops; the most com-
monly used herbicide was
Agent Orange, an equal mix of
two common herbicides called
2,4,5-T 1and -24-D. Studies
completed in the late 1960s
showed that 2,4,5-T caused
birth defects in mice and., t the
same time, newspapers in Viet-
nam began to report health
problems, including birth
defects, in rural populations
which had been exposed to
As the Air Force was wind-
ing down its herbicide spraying
program, 2,4,5-T was found to
contain amounts of dioxin,
which was then suspected of
being hazardous. Since that
time, studies have shown that
dioxin is one of the most-Toxic
substances known to man. It
exhibits a delayed biological
response in many species and isk
highly lethal at low doses to
aquatic,organisms, birds, and
mammals, including man. A$I
though scientists are still not
sure of all the side effects of
dioxin exposure in human bet
ings, studies completed on mice
showed an absolute correlation
between dioxin, exposure ana
fetal death and birth defects;
Dioxin was found to be car,-
cinogenic in rats, and based on
these studies dioxin is thought
to be carcinogenic to man.' ,
Since 1977, Vietnam
veterans have attributed a
number of illnesses to Agent
Orange exposure, including skin
conditions, cancer, fatigue, ner-
vousness, numbness in the ex-
tremities, vision and heari g im-
pairments, birth defects in
children, and other ail ".nts.
Thereafter, in 1978,1, the
Veterans Administration began
to provide physical examina-
tions for Vietnam veterans who
thought they were exposed to
Agent Orange. As of December
1, 1982, 101,721 veterans had
