Workshops to Explain Rules

Proposed for Coastal Land

During the months of Au-
gust and September, the
Department of Community
Affairs will sponsor work-
shops around the state to
explain a proposed ,rule the
department has drafted in
connection with the Coastal
Barrier Executive Order.
The public is invited to all
sessions. At present, work-
shops are scheduled to con-
vene at 7 p.m. on the
following dates at the follow-
ing locations:
August 22- St. Augustine,
City Hall;
August 24- Niceville, Oka-
loosa-Walton Jr. College;

August 28- Tallahassee,
Cabinet Meeting Rooim, The
August 30, Plantation Key,

September 6-- Fort Pierce,
Indian River Community
St. Joseph Peninsula and
Gulf County's long coast-
line make these workshops
of particular interest to
county property owners.
In 1981 Governor Bob Gra-
ham made a commitment to
protect the state's coastal
barriers as part of his "Save

Our Coast" program when he
signed Executive Order 81-
105 establishing policy for the
management of these areas.
"Florida has more coastal
barriers than any other state,
and they are a valuable
resource," the governor said
recently. "They aid in re-
ducing the state's vulner-
ability to hurricanes as well
as providing beauty and
enjoyment to many Floridi-
ans. It is incumbent upon us
to protect these critical
areas, both for now and for
future generations."

Millage Set

Board Agrees to 11 Percent Hike In Overtime Session

The Gulf County Commission went into
overtime Tuesday afternoon, to hammer out a
budget figure and millage levy which could be
advertised and included in the TRIM notices
which must be sent to every property owner in
the county, before the final; budget figure is
arrived at.
Mike Dorsey, an accountant working with
the Clerk's office this year in the building of the
budget told the Commission Tuesday morning
during the regular session of the board the
present figures the board was considering just
wouldn't work out with the current sources of
The county is facing several extra-ordinary
expenses this year, in construction of the solid
waste compactor here in south Gulf county and
the sudden need to finance operation of a paid
ambulance service here in the Port St. Joe area.
The county is faced with the prospect of having
to re-build two bridges which will cost a nice
chunk of money but this money will come from
the State Secondary Road Tax money sent the
county each year.
"All of these extra expenses will have to
come from tax money because you don't have
any uncommitted funds coming in from another
source", Dorsey said.
Dorsey advised the Commission they
couldn't go over a 15 percent increase in tax
dollar income and still receive state revenue
sharing funds and their share of the sales tax

With the extra expenses, the approved
budget figures for different offices in the
courthouse and a proposed five percent raise,
"You already need to cut $12,000 just to stay
within the 15 percent cap set by the State of
Commissioner Doug Birmingham observed
the extra $200,000 will have to come from the
taxpayers. "That's a pretty big bill for our few
taxpayers to have to pay out. Only 43 percent of
our people pay ad valorem taxes as it is."
"If we proceed with the present figures,
we'll his these few people hard, and I for one,
don't want to do it," Birmingham continued.
Robert Nedley, a Vice-President with St. Joe
Paper Company said, "If you look at the record
from 1979, only medical costs have esculated
faster than the county budget over the same
period of time."
"Somewhere the dollars and numbers just
don't add up", Nedley observed. "We need to
find out the reason and see if we can't bring this
trend to a stop", the paper company executive
After a break for lunch, the Commission
came back for an afternoon session with county
officials to look for a place to cut expenses in
order to come up with a realistic mill levy and
tax bill and still meet the needs of the county.
After several hours of hammering out

agreements and seeking ways to cut expenses,
the Commission finally agreed on a mill
property tax rate of 5.24919, for a very slight
increase over last year's rate of 5.234.
The problem comes with the money this mill
rate will generate. While the mill levy increase
is almost negligible, the increase in money
received by the county will be 11 percent over
last year. To bring in the same amount of money
as last year's tax levy, the mill rate would have
to be reduced to 4.729.
The mill levy of 5.24919 will bring in a total of
$1,556,208 in tax revenue. Last year, the county
received $1,401,989 in tax dollars.
In order to arrive at the final figure, the
Board cut a proposed five percent pay increase
to its employees to four percent and making
several cuts in individual office budgets.
Even so, according to Chairman Owens and
Commissioner Birmingham, "The budget is
about $8,000 more than available money to
finance it."
Birmingham said the county could probably
meet the shortage by the delay necessary in
getting a new Mosquito Control Director on the
Owens said, "We've approved the budget,
but we can't raise that much money under our
present revenue sources."
The entire Commission Board agreed there
will probably be considerable transfer of funds
during the coming year to keep each budget
operating in the black.

Summer Vacation Gone

Summer vacation surely passed
by in a hurry this year, didn't it?
Here it is time for the kids to go
back to school already. It seemed like
it was only a couple of weeks ago they
got out for the summer, shucked their
shoes and started a summer of fun and
Now, it's back to the books again.
We understand Florida State
University will even play their first
football game of the season, two weeks
from Saturday. Can there be any
better sign that summer is fleeting
and fall is right ready to come on the
Where has the time gone.

-Keep It Clean

David Roche told the City Com-
mission last Tuesday, "We need some
cleaning up downtown to make our
city presentable".
- One couldn't help but agree with
David. Cleaning up wouldn't hurt our
downtown, our uptown, our 'round
town or our out of town. It is all a
pretty big mess.
The only thing bad about the
situation is that the downtown has
E been cleaned at least three times
during the past month or so and one
: can hardly tell it. City street crews
� have gone through the business area
and performed some "policing" up of
E the area, cut the grass, picked up
trash, etc.
The thing seems to be that we
need fewer people to toss their trash
out on the street. That way, the
downtown area would stay clean with
just a little attention now and then.
:-The major operations which were
necessary this month wouldn't be
necessary next month.
This situation doesn't just exist
here in town. There are those out
there who toss their trash out just
.anywhere they happen to.empty a
sack, unwrap a package, or:finish -
can 6f refreshment. '
Last week, while driving out on
"the Peninsula to take a picture of a
:wreck out there, we fell in behind a
:-:buff colored Dodge van with Jackson
..:County plates on it. The license
.number was FLH167. As we were
driving along, the passenger in the
van tossed a sack out on the road side
and the van kept on going.
Multiply that incident by several
hundred a day.
It adds up to more trash and
-debris than a small army can pick up
or clean up, working all day long. a
It's no wonder our streets look so
sloppy, we have some sloppy people
:come through our county, leaving
:their trash behind. We also have our
:share of sloppy people who live here
and do their litter bit to keep the
roadsides and pedestrian paths dirty.

One thing which hastened the
passage of time, we think, is election
year. The pace of things has picked up
to such a tempo until the time was
gone and summer over before we even
had time to realize it was here. For
those campaigning out in the heat and
humidity, we imagine the days
seemed long and never-ending. But
they did end.
It's true that schools are starting a
week earlier than ordinary, but still,
the time has come for them to start.
We remember when summer time
was about as welcome as Christmas
time. School was out, the' chores were
slacking off and the woods were
beckoning. Off came the shoes and
any puddle deep enough to come up to
our ankles was promptly dubbed a
"swimming hole". All of this activity,

Money -But

Not Poor


of course, took place in a slightly more
arid locale than Port St. Joe.
Summer was a joy.
We imagine the kids are still not
so sophisticated in this day and age
that summer still is a favorite time of
the year for them.
If we had to live a part of our life
over again, we would definitely choose
the summer time and its days of

Of course, now that we're older
and know better and the seasons of the
summer affect us more, it is without
regret that we see summer time
winding down. We don't know about
you, but the cool evenings and nights
of fall will be a welcome respite to us.
We. won't even fuss too much about
having to light up-and clean out-the
fireplace once again.

By Kesley Colbert
You know, since I've been
writing (and I use that word
loosely here) this little blurb,
the three questions I get ask-
ed the most are: 1) Did you
really punch a hole through
the Coca-Cola cap with an
ice pick? 2) Are you really
from the country? 3) Were
you that poor growing up?
Well, the answers to those
questions are yes, yes and

If you have trouble believ-
ing the hole:in the cap story,
just ask one of your neigh-
bors, chances are they did
the same thing. As far as be-
ing from the country, when
someone showed up at our
house they were either lost,
looking for their dogs, or
coming to see us. You just
didn't accidently drop by the
house. As a matter of fact,
when you turned off the pav-
ed road up at the crossroads,

It's wonderful to live in a
country where we have the
right to say what's on our
mind. For instance, if I
wanted to I could write about
what a bad job I thought
President Reagan has been
doing and what a bad sort of
a fella he is. Yes, I could do
that if I wanted to. It's just
that I don't want to. Actually,
I think the President is a
peach-of-a-fella and I like
him very much. It's great,
however, to know that I have
the right to say something I
think about the President,
even though it may not be a

friends. After all, they are
not the ones to blame.
A few years ago Howard
Hughes made the govern-
ment a proposition. He told
Congress he would take over
the U, S. Mail and provide
better and faster service, and
he would do it at half the cost.

never gave him a chance. I,
personally, believe he could

Power of Suggestion Could Conjure Up A Hurricane If We're Not Careful ,

DID YOU EVER notice how
things never happen until you mention
some unfortunate subject?
I'll give you an example.
In the past two or three weeks we
have -received articles from thp
University of Florida, the Society for
the Prevention of Cruelty to Mosqui-
toes, Extention Agent Roy Lee Carter
and anyone else you might think of. In
these articles I have read how
mosquitoes, love, breed, make homes,
grow, live, sting, fly, sleep, hibernate,
and grow from little bitty wigglers to
the insect that worries you to death in
times like these.
We even printed one of those
articles here in The Star, about how
mosquitoes grow and what makes
them grow. I remember particularly,
the article said it wasn't the mosquito
bite which stings, it was the saliva he
left behind after he sucked blood.
Although the article didn't say, I
suspect the mosquito is a Red Man
chewer or a Copenhagen dipper, like
the teen-age boys these days, and it's
the juice from the chewing or dipping

which leaves the sting.
coming out of the church after
deacon's meeting and one of our

summer. I never even start mowing
until around 7:00 p.m., when the
temperature gets a little cooler, and
stay at it up until dark.

number happened to remark, "They
are spraying mosquitoes again .. . I
smell the spray".
There it was again-a mention of
mosquitoes. It seems like every time I
turn around these past few weeks, I
have read, heard or seen something
about mosquitoes.
What made all this the subject of
this space was the fact that I have
mowed grass right up until dark this

left me alone. It could be the way I
smell after pushing that lawn mower
for an hour or so, and the sweat
pouring off me like a pulp wood
worker. But, one of the things I read
says a mosquito uses this smell to
home in on his favorite dinner-blood!
On occasion, I have even sat in the
yard swing or on the patio while I
cooled off, with dark crashing down
around my ears.

Now, it's a different story. The
mosquitoes will carry you off if you
try to spend a few leisurely moments
outside now. After all that rain, there
are more than enough mosquitoes to
go around.
Maybe if we hadn't mentioned
mosquites or seen the articles on their
feeding habits, we might have been
ignored by the mosquito by ignoring


THE THING WHICH worries me
now is the emphasis the weather
bureau people are putting on hurri-
canes these days. Almost every
paper, TV news program or magazine
I pick up now has the warning about
how it has been a while since a huge
hurricane has hit Florida. One article
I read late last week said there are so
many people along the coast of
Florida now, the only protection we
may find is in congregating in large
and tall buildings.
Last week at Rotary Club, we had
one of those weather bureau types
from the Apalachicola weather bu-
reau station telling us the trend of
storms along the coast has it our time
to catch one up here in the Panhandle.
The cycle seems to say it's time for a
killer storm to come into the Gulf of
Mexico and head our way.
Those guys are just talking up
another storm to disturb our tranquil-
ity. If we leave it alone, it may not

come. If it does come, they tell us we
had better take off to higher ground,
because it's "our time".

I DON'T BELIEVE in borrowing
trouble, but these warnings and these
articles seem to be more than a little
responsible for the distasteful times
we have.
Like the Atlanta Braves; they
have talked themselves into believing
they can't beat the Dodgers this year.
If the Dodgers score only two runs, the
Braves oblige them and score only
one. If the Dodgers score only one run,
the Braves suck it up and manage to
go the entire nine innings without
scoring. Things like that, mosquitoes
suddenly appearing and making life
outside miserable, and stormy wea-
ther bothering us seems to be all
because we have talked it up.

JUST LIKE THIS column this
week: I sat down to the typesetter,
telling myself I had nothing to write
about this week.
Sure enough, I didn't!

Rev. Larry Wells of Port St. Joe was named
by the Commission to fill the vacant post of Civil
Defense director for the county. Wells will be a
part-time director, working 20 hours a week in
the post. Wells took over the position Tuesday.
Bill Lamar, former CD director resigned
last month and moved to South Carolina.
The Civil Defense office will be moved into
the courthouse, back into the room it formerly
occupied before Lamar took over. When Lamar
became director, he moved the office into the
Sheriff's Department.
Harry Herrington, transportation director
with the School Board notified the Board that a

the school bus from using a former turn-around

We were pretty young and
couldn't pick much cotton
but Mr. Brooks was so nice
and he treated us just like we
were regular workers. As we
got a little older, picking cot-
ton got to be serious business
for us. We could make six or
seven dollars a day and that
was big money back then. Of
course it was work- I'd
start out stooped over and
picking as fast as I could,
then my back would start
hurting so I'd get down on
my knees and work awhile;
but after about a row and a
half my knees would start
hurting and so I'd get up,
stoop over and keep picking
till my back started hurting
again, and then I'd go back
to my knees. When the day
was over I had big money in
my pocket but I was too tired
to spend it. You know, since
automation and the coming
of the cotton picker I wonder

ton said.
The street in question is a street which
William Carlisle of Overstreet claimed was built
on his property and asked the Commission to
move. The county had informed Carlisle the
street was where the developer had told them it
was supposed to be. A survey several years later
revealed the street was, indeed, on Carlisle)s
property. It had been built on the wrong side of
the marking stakes many years ago.
The County agreed to move the road but
instructed Carlisle to leave the present road
open until they could get it moved.
Now, Herrington says Carlisle has barricad-
ed the street and erected a sign warning people
to keep off.
Chairman Owens instructed Deputy Sheriff
Joe Johnson to remove the signs and barricade
and tell Carlisle the street is to remain open until
a new one is built.
Road Department Commissioner Jimmy
Gortman said work was to begin on the new

street in "just a short while, but we informed
Mr. Carlisle to leave the present street open until
the new one is built".
In other items of business, the Commission:
-Appointed Sam Graves, Jr., long time
employee of the Mosquito Control Department,
as director of the Department. It was pointed out
Graves would have to be certified by the State of
Florida before he could assume the position.
-Approved a bill for $8,114 for emergency
repairs to the boiler which serves the courthouse
and adopted a routine of inspection for the
boiler. "It was in extremely dangerous
condition", Chairman Owens reported.
-Agreed to hear a proposal for a
replacement to the present phone system at the

Healthful outdoor exercise,
a feeling of accomplishment,

reasons why more and more
Floridians are turning to
home vegetable gardening.
My information for this arti-
cle was provided by Exten-
sion Vegetable Specialist Jim
Stephens, of the University of
Florida's Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences.
Usually, the most physical
part of a vegetable gardening
project is getting the soil
ready for planting. But,
whatever you do, don't give
in to the temptation to cut
corners on this phase of the
operation. If you do a poor
job preparing the soil, you
can expect poor results from
your garden even if you work
hard on planting and cultiva-

extent on what's growing on
your garden,site now. If you
have heavy weeds, or a cover
crop ' you intend to turn
under, you should start a
month or six weeks before
planting. Thip also is the time
to add lime, if needed. I have
found most soils here in Port
St. Joe to be very alkaline
(swe t). In these soils you
will need to add sulfur or a
fertilizer that has sulfur in it.
If you have kept the garden
site fallow, pr you plan to
remove all vegetation and no
lime or sulfur is required,
you could ptepare� the soil
and plaht within two or three
days. However, if you plan to
work extra Organic matter
into the soil before planting,
you should start two or three
weeks ahead of time.
To prepare the soil, dig
down jix to eight inches, and
turn ;each shovelful com-
pletely over.; If you're turn-

tion. If you're planning a
large garden, you may want
to rent a rototiller or even a
small tractor and plow to use
in preparing the soil. But, for
a small backyard garden,
you can do the work with a
spade or shovel.
The time to begin soil
preparation depends to some

ing in weeds, or a cover crop,
you should remove all the
woody plant material be-
cause it won't decompose
very well.
After the soil is turned,
break all clods and level with
a rake. Do this as soon as you
can, to prevent excess drying
of the soil, and keep good soil
texture. This is important,
because a firmly pulverized
soil surface will make plant-
ing easier, give you better
seed germination, and help
insure a more even stand of
vegetables. It's especially
important to have fine tex-
tured soil when planting
small-seeded crops like car-
In some, it's also necessary
to add some kind of liming
material well before planting
at the same time you turn the
soil. Lime reduces soil acidi-
ty. Without going into a
chemistry lesson, lime adds
calcium to the soil and makes
minor elements more avail-
able to plants. The most
commonly used form of lime
is dolomite. Besides calcium,
dolomite provides magnesi-
um, another important plant
nutrient. You really should
add lime only when a soil test
indicates the need for it. Too
much can be as bad as too
little. If a soil test indicates
your soil is too sweet, or
alkaline, you may need to
add sulfur in the amount that
will reduce the soil pH to the
desired level. The best thing
to do before liming or adding
sulfur is to consult a reput-
able nurseryman, or see your
County Extension Agent.
To summarize briefly, to
have a good garden you need
to prepare the soil properly.
Be sure to start far enough
ahead of planting to allow
organic matter to decompose
fairly well. Turn the soil to a
depth of six or eight inches.
Make sure you have a level,
finely textured surface be-

Shark fishing, both recrea-
tionally and commercially is
an exciting adventure. The
huge man-eaters put up
impressive struggles before
being landed. But once
you've gotten that trophy
shark landed and weighed
and all the pictures taken,
generally the carcass is
discarded, right? In past
years maybe, but now man-
eating shark is taking on a
new meaning.
Thousands of Americans
are beginning to look at
shark meat as an acceptable
seafood. The large amount of
muscle tissue in shark make
excellent fillets and steaks.
Properly handled and pre-
pared shark can be a delici-
ous addition to any menu.
To insure good quality and
flavor of shark meat, sharks
should be dressed immedi-
ately after being caught. A
few basic steps should be
carried out:
1) Cut off the head and
caudal fin (tail fin).
2) Hang the shark up so the
blood will drain out.
3) Flush the main artery
out with saltwater, non-io-
dized, such as kosher salt,
never use iodized salt for
shark as the flesh will turn
black and spoil.
4) Eviscerate and clean the
shark well.
5) Rinse the shark meat
6) Place the shark in a
solution or slush of ice.
Failure to drain the blood
from the shark results in the
blood urea deteriorating into
ammonia, causing a strong
pungent shark odor. The
meat of poorly handled shark
will also have a dry taste.
Urea poses no harm to
humans, only a distasteful
odor. When buying shark
meat, to neutralize any resi-
dual ammonia, soak the
meat in an icy solution of one
cup of salt and one gallon of
water for about two hours.
Shark is also a highly
nutritious meat. Compared
to other meats, shark is high
in protein and low in fat and
