likelihood of injury to per-
sons using the facilities.
The Commission has been
trying to secure a permit
from the Department of
Environmental Regulation
for the past year to re-build
the facilities with steel and
concrete, reducing the need
for maintenance. 'So far,
DER has refused to issue the
permit. The Commission is
still pursuing the permit and
has a conference scheduled
for some time next week with
state officials to discuss the
need and the environmental
safety of the city's plans.
White's report says the
present structure contains
some rotting boards, con-
crete scrap used as rip-rap in
the area which could be
dangerous and the need for
dredging the slip to remove
underwater hazards.
The dredging is the hold-up
for the state permit and
possibly the safety survey
will bear 'some weight in
getting it approved.,
Other areas which needed
attention were the installa-
tion of emergency lighting
fixtures at the Centennial
building. Clerk Farris said
the city had the lights, but
had been unable to get them

Property Appraiser Kesley Colbert
said the notices bear the name of former
Property Appraiser Joyce Williams, but
says they are official just the same. "The
notices were prepared while she was still
in office", Colbert said, "and should be
considered as legal notice even though
the wrong name is signed on the notices,
as Property Appraiser".
Colbert said there may * be one
problem with the mailing this year.
"Since a different staff mailed, out the
notices, our present staff doesn't really"
know who the notices went to and who
they didn't. Some property owners were
bound to miss getting theirs. When you

Work On



County road department
crews resumed work this
week on a project of building
a sidewalk in the Oak Grove
area to serve the approach to
the Port St. Joe High ,School.
The sidewalk approach to
the school was partially built
some few years ago, but
recently the county decided
to extend it to the Jackson
Street intersection with Niles
Road. Work was resumed
prior to Christmas but was
stopped again when the
Christmas holiday period ar-
This week, work was re-
sumed on the project.

The sidewalk is being built
in two projects. One portion
of the work will bring the
sidewalk from its present end
on the south side of Niles
Road, all the way to Second
Avenue, still on the south side
of Niles. The second section
of the project will extend the
walk all the way to the

your exempt status, to get in touch with
his office immediately.
Property owners have until March 1 =
to file their homestead exemption with
the Property Appraiser's office, but if
there is any problem, they should begin
taking care of it immediately. "If a
person due homestead exemption doesn't
make some move to make his claim by
March 1, the law prevents me from doing..
anything about it until the next year",
Colbert said.
Colbert said anyone living in their
own home the first day of 1985 is eligible
for homestead exemption, which allows
him a $25,000 exemption on his home for
taxing purposes.
"Filing for the ,exemption is not
automatic", colbert said. "It's some-
thing homeowners must do every year to
take advantage of the tax break. It is the
obligation of the property owner to take
care of this matter each and every year",
e Appraiser said.

Jail Citations Greet Sheriff On First Day In Office

Gulf County's new Sheriff, Al
Harrison, had no more than hung up
his hat and found out where his chair
was Wednesday, after being sworn
into office on Tuesday, before the
State's Department of Corrections
office was on his back about the
condition of Gulf County's Jail.
The jail has been one -of the
favorite reasons for the Department
of Corrections making forays into the
Panhandle for the past couple of years
and drew a nine point list of needs of
correction from the visit.
Joe Musgrave, inspector for the
DOC, said he was mainly interested in
* life-threatening needs at the jail, but
as long as they existed, he was going
to cite jail and 'the Sheriff's
Department for the 'small house-
cleaning type demerits also.
Life-threatening problems Mus-

grave especially cited at the jail was
the practice of allowing prisoners to
place things between the bars, such as
articles of clothing. "These can get in
the locks and make them inoperable,
possibly preventing the proper care of
a prisoner during times of emergen-
cy" he said. Another of the life-threa-
tening. problems was that fire and
safety standards have not been met in
the jail.
One of the main items of criticism
by the DOC inspectors was the
presence of naked electric wires in the
ceiling where prisoners had ripped
down light fixtures. "They had live
wires in them and drew considerable
attention from the inspectors", White
Chief Deputy, Mike White told
The Star the primary problem here
was there was no emergency lighting

in the corridors of the jail to operate in
case of power failures. "The lights are
here, but they have not been installed
as yet", White said. "We found them
here on the premises and we'll get
them installed as soon as we can."
The first of nine specific charges
against the jail operation said -all
deficiencies in previous reports had
not yet been corrected. The Coux ty
Commission allocated and spent sohne
$20,000 during the last budget year] in
an attempt to correct some of the list
of problems with which DOC charged
the jail. The money was spent j in
installing a back entrance to the jail;
installing smoke detectors and an
electronic surveillance system, as well
as making some fire prevention
changes in the jail and kitchen areas.
But DOC still isn't satisfied. They
are still insisting, "There is no

correctional officer or staff member
on each floor of the facility at all
times". The jail has only one floor, but
the report insists there must be at
least one dispatcher and one -correc-
tional officer per shift on duty at all
times. In months past, this has been
interpreted as employment of at least
14 more people to comply with the
"There is no way a small county
like Gulf County can come up with the
money to meet such a demand",
White said this week and the County
Commission and former Sheriff Ken
Murphy have said the same for the
past two years.
New Sheriff Al Harrison said,
"We're going to try to satisfy DOC's
demands and we feel if we clean the
area up and keep it clean, we can get a
clean bill of health".

Sheriff Harrison may be correct
in his supposition because two of the
charges made against the jail on the
latest inspection are for house-keep-
ing practices. The report cites the jail
for clutter and litter in areas of the
facility and dirty window sills. Chief
Deputy White said these have already
been corrected.
Sheriff Harrison said, "We're
going to keep the jail clean; we're
going to put a new type lighting
fixture in the cells to correct the
problem of continuous bad marks
when prisoners keep them broken out;
\;e're going to do something about
naked wires where they have torn
light fixtures out of the cells and we're
going to try and get along with DOC
with our jail's operation."
The Sheriff said corrections had
also been made against such small

complaints as having a written:
procedure posted for the handling of:
sensitive food items (highly perish-
able foods). "You put them in the
refrigerator or the freezer; everybody
knows that; but we have it spelled out
in written instructiontructions now", Harrison
said. The jail was also criticized for
not having proper forms on hand to;
file reports of attempted jail breaks.
"We have those forms now and they
will be filled out when the occasion
demands", Chief Deputy White said.
The Department of Corrections is
coming down hard on many jail
operations throughout the state, stir-
ring up attention for the safety and
operation of jails which hasn't been
there before. Their actions have been
very visible here and in neighboring
Bay County, even though both coun-
ties have relatively new jails.

Talking About How

Comedienne Joan Rivers has
made thousands and thousands of
dollars confidentially repeating the
short phrase, "Can we talk?" and
drew millions of belly laughs while
she was doing it.
Rivers has sort of made a
trademark out of the short question
and entertained those who would
listen to her talk.
Last week, Secretary of State
George Schultz and Soviet Foreign
Minister Andrei Gromyko had the
:rapt attention of the world as they
tentatively asked each other the
same question. . . "Can we talk?"
While Rivers has captured the
attention of many people with her
statement of the question, she has
never held the world spellbound
with the outcome of the question
- such as Schultz and Gromyko did.
While the two foreign ministers
were exploring the question by
talking over whether the two super
powers could get together and talk
about whether or not they could
talk, the world held its breath. A
positive answer would ease world
nuclear fears and tensions. A
negative answer would continue
the anxiety and unrest experienced

Seldom has so much depended
on a simple "yes" or a simple
"no", We can talk or we can find no

It wasn't easy, deciding to talk.
It wasn't a matter of getting
together, shaking hands and asking
the question. It took seven hours
and 40 minutes..
It was only natural, we sup-
pose, that it took so long to agree to
talk. The subject to be talked about
is some pretty heavy subjects, like
working out an effective agree-
ment aimed at preventing an arms
race in space and terminating it on
If it took seven hours and 40
minutes just to agree to talk, we
can see where the actual subject to
be talked about could last on into
the next generation. That's good;
maybe the next generation will

they can reach a sensible agree-

lly Approved

One thing we hope is that in the
future the Commission will not
leave it up to anyone to file permits
for it without supervision. True,
when you pay a firm good money,
they should do the job they are paid
for. In the case of permits to
operate such things as landfill
sites, the situation is too important
to allow to progress _(or; not
progress) without regular monitor-
ing by the local bodies involved.

With luck, such a thing will
never happen again.

Keep An Eye On It

Again we have experienced a
,tremendous increase in construc-
Stion here in Gulf County.. Again we
-have experienced a large chunk of
.our wild and deserted beach and
Waterfront property being taken
';from the position of providing
:recreation for everyone and any-
one who wishes to use the property.
We now have people buying
that property at high prices and the
high prices are going to make the
new owners particular about let-
ting just anybody use the beaches

under their new status.
We can expect nothing more
than continued growth and more
private ownership of play lands we
formerly considered public lands.
There's no way we can stop it.
The land is under private owner-
ship and a land owner has the right
to sell, build on, or build a fence
around what he owns.
We can only get interested in
the growth and see that it is done
properly, to the protection of
everyone in the county.

Me and Ole George - Part II

By Kesley Colbert
"Hello ... anybody home.
." I shouted at what I
already knew was an empty
150 year old cabin. Well, this
entire trip was just about
bordering on the bizarre. I
kept thinking what am I do-
ing at Cades Cove in the
Smoky Mountains in the
dead of winter trying to
interview some of these
mountain folks that moved
out of this little cove over 50
years ago. ,
The fact that it was snow-.
ing like the dickens and my
buddy George was a'sitting
out in the car laughing be,
cause I was up here to "in-
terview" the local residents
didn't help my feelings at all;
As I reached for the wooden
latch on the door a few lines
from an old poem by Robert
Frost popped into my head.
The poem was entitled.
"Stoppping by the Woods bn
A Snowy Evening".
Boy, the cabin was small,
very small, and there was
only one room downstairs
and a small loft upstairs

where I'm sure the children
slept. The fireplace took up
most of one wall and I in-
stinctly moved toward it as if
it might still give off some
warmth. I had read that
John Oliver purchased the
land in 1826 and I'm sure he
built the pabin soon after-
wards. Even now I could see
his wife and 7 or 8 children
huddled around this very
fireplace laughing and talk-
ing. As I rubbed my hands'
together and moved closer to
the hearth I wondered what
they were laughing and talk-
ing about. You can bet your
hat and coat (and I wish that
I'd brought both on this trip)
they weren't talking about
the "A-Team".
Mr. Oliver had once been
to Boston and he was telling
the children about the city
and the ocean and the big
ships .. . only the oldest boy
had ever been out of the
mountains and if you looked
closely you could see the
wonder and the excitement
in the faces of the Oliver
children as they tried to im-

agine what an ocean looked
like. Mr. Oliver talked of his
early days growing up in Vir-
ginia and he reminded his
children how easy they had it
today compared to his early
life. "After all", he said,
"This is 1851." And as he
raised his hand to illustrate a
point you got a glimpse of
that rough palm and you
could see in that weathered
face that Mr. Oliver wasn't
just talking - he had lived it.
,Well, I, along with the
children, was a little disap-
pointed when Mrs. Oliver
said "John, it's almost
7:00." Bedtime. Shucks, I
could have listened all night
but I understood - they
couldn't waste the coal oil
sitting around making idle
talk. I was kind'a glad when
Mr. Oliver threw that big ole
back log on the fire 'cause I
could tell it was going to be a
cold night: Of course more
fires meant more ashes and
that was O.K. 'cause they
saved the ashes - used them
to make lye soap in the spr-

As I stepped back out onto
the porch I could see through
the snow the trees surround-
ing the house; and as I look-
ed across the front yard to
the hillside just beyond it, I
could see rocks scattered all
about and I realized that
within sight of that porch
was everything Mr. Oliver
needed to build that cabin. I
turned back and looked at
the cabin once more. The
logs had been hewn with a
broad axe and notched at the
ends so they fit perfectly
together. Mud had been used
to fill the cracks between the
logs. The stone chimney was
laid in mud mortar. I began
to turn an idea over in my
mind. The materials that
John Oliver used to build this
house were growing or lying
all around - could I have
built this house?
Suddenly, I raced back in-
side and searched the cabin
thoroughly - not one nail'
was to be found in the entire
building. Son-of-a-gun!
When I climbed back into
the car George asked, "What

Kesley Colbert
took so long?"
"Oh, I was visiting with
John Oliver - he sure is a

We stopped at the Primi-
tive Baptist Church and the
Methodist Church and the
Missionary Baptist Church.
Three churches within a cou-
ple of miles of each other in
this small cove. To me, that
speaks volumes about the
kind of people who lived
here. I could close my eyes
and hear those bells a'ring-
ing on Sunday morning. And
I bet the preaching lasted all
day - I know it did at those
Baptist churches ....
And I found a small

New Fast Food Idea Should Make A Mint for Those Who Plunge

enons of the business world these days
is the impact the fast food business is
having in the American way of life.
There is a fast food purveyor on
practically every corner in most
every -medium small to large city in

America's love affair with something

The reason I'm writing on this
subject this week is because I see an
interesting entry into the fast food
i industry which should set the world on
fire. It takes fast food to the epitome
of quick service and promises to be
the meal on the run of the future.

I'm talking about the new "Big
Smacks" which is getting a toe hold on
the eat and run crowd.
The new fast food fad is "Big
Smack" but it has a good reason for
carrying such a name in a country
where nick-names are all the rage.
The "Big Smack" is cooked or
prepared in the conventional way.
There's no secret about that. It can be
fried or flame grilled. It can be boiled
or roasted. It can be grilled or
When it comes to serving "Big
Smacks" up to customers, the method
is just a little different from the tried
and true method of fighting a crowd at
a small counter or window.
With the "Big Smack", the name
sort of describes the method in which
it is served.
According to what I read the "Big
Smack" is truly served on the run.
The product gets its name because it
is served by throwing it at your
windshield while you are driving down
the highway at 65 miles per hour. The
sound the product makes as it smacks

into your windshile is the inspiration
for the name of "Big Smacks".
That name took no expertise; no
remembered action and no interpreta-
tion of what the "Smack" sounds like
as it is delivered.
Slowing down to 65 to get delivery
on a "Big Smack" should cause
hardly any hardship at all. Most folks
slow down to at least 65 when they go
through a town anymore.
The "Smack" is recovered from
the windshield by the windshield
wiper pushing the "Smack" into
the reach of the driver.
With such appeal as delivery of
the "Big Smack" provides, it hardly
seems possible that the item could be
anything but a success.
I don't know how a "Smack" will
taste, but the delivery should be
unique enough to attract customers
from all over. If I can scrape together
an extra $10, I'm going to buy me a
share in "Big Smacks" if I can find
out who is selling the stock.
An opportunity like this doesn't
hit you in the face very often.

Stone Fruits Need Cold Weather Handy Is New

Special Varieties Developed for Mild Panhandle Winters

County Extension Director
Peaches, nectarines, and
plums are called stone or
drupe fruits because they
consist of a seed enclosed in a
heavy pit or stone surround-
ed by soft flesh. Other stone
fruits such as apricots, al-
monds and cherries are not
well adapted to Florida and
should not be planted. My
information for this article
was provided by Extension's
Fruit and Nut Specialist, Dr.
Tim Crocker, of the Univer-
sity of Florida Institute of
Food and Agricultural Scien-
The fruit development oc-
curs in stages. During the
first stage, which starts
immediately after fruit set,
the stone or pit is soft and the
proportion of flesh to pit is
small. The second stage is a
transitional stage in which
the pit hardens. After the
stone hardens, the third
stage begins in which the
flesh develops rapidly and
the fruit diameter increases
correspondingly. This is of-
ten called the "final swell."
Peach, nectarine, and
plum trees often set fruit too
heavily, and some must be
removed or thinned to obtain
adequate fruit size. To obtain
maximum. effect, thinning

must be done prior to pit
hardening or the second
stage of development- this
stage can be recognized by
the increased difficulty of
cutting through the pit with a
knife. When the knife first
encounters a resistance to
cutting through the seed, the
pit hardening stage has be-
Optimum soil moisture
condition is essential during
the final swell to increase
fruit size. Irrigation is neces-
sary during dry periods due
to the characteristic of shal-
low root systems of stone
fruits. Avoid frequent light
irrigation since this tends to
promote root development
near the soil surface. Apply
two inches of water at
intervals of 10 to 14 days

unless adequate rainfall oc-
Peach and nectarine trees
should make extensive ter-
minal growth each year,
which requires relatively
heavy annual pruning. On the
other hand, plums fruK. on
both long twigs and on very
short twigs called spurs..
Since there is less terminal
growth than for peaches,
correspondingly less pruning
is required. Fruit buds are
produced during the spring
and summer on current
season growth.
Stone fruit have a winter
"chilling" requirement. This
means trees must be.subject-
ed to periods of low tempera-
ture during the winter if they
are to bloom and grow
satisfactorily in the spring.
The required length of cold
periods depend on the culti-
var. Florida's mild winter
greatly restricts the number
of cultivars available. Only
those adapted to your area
should be considered.
Under Florida conditions,
stone fruits tend to bloom
soon after the chilling re-
quirement is satisfied. This,
coupled with the alternate
periods of warm and cold
weather in the late winter
and spring in Florida may
result in early bloom which is
frequently damaged by late

freezes. Since this is a
hazard, the warmest sites
should be reserved for stone
To fertilize, apply about
one lb. of 10-10-10 fertilizer
per tree during May of the
first season after planting. In
late February of succeeding
years, apply about one lb. of-
10-10-10 for each year of age
of the tree until a maximum'
of 10 lbs: per tree is reached.'
In May of each year repeat"
the above recommendations-.

rieties include Florida King,

Grande, Suwanee and Sun-,

talk with a discussion of the
types of pots to use for dish

different plants. One of the
high points of her discussion
was, to warn gardeners

Retired Sea Capt. Tells

of Maritime Adventures

John Sealy, retired sea
captain, told the Kiwanis
Club some of his adventures
and of his time spent in the
maritime service Tuesday at
their regular meeting.
- Sealy recently retired after
40 years at sea, which started
when he was only 14 years of
age. "It was during World
War II and I was 14 years of
age and in the eighth grade
when I caught a tugboat at
midnight at the canal at
White City and went to sea",
Sealy said. While he said he
had since regretted quitting
school, he has long since
made up for it by attending
school and special classes for
much of his life.
Sealy spent only a short
while on the tugboat before
he went with the Army
Transportation Service and

Sealy said shortly before he
retired, he was master of a
tanker which had 10 tanks on
board, each holding more
than 80,000 barrels of oil.
"One tank'in this tanker held
more oil than the full load on
the first tanker I ever served
on", he said. The tanker was
so large it could only go into
drydock in two places in the
world.' The closest it could
get to the United States in the

football team. He was an

1979 and served as Assistant

Gulf of Mexico was at a port

More recently, Sealy said
he commanded vessels which

throughout much of the
world. "We had the entire
plant on board from the lock
on the door to the fuel rods
which went into-the reactor".
Sealy said the ships which
handled the nuclear power
plant components were ppe-

components for the plants
were so heavy they couldn't
be managed in conventional

was working for had two such

making the trips.

Not very many years ago the laws controlling the
Sale of medicines were pretty strict. Even such
products as aspirin could not be sold except in a
pharmacy and then only by a registered pharmacist. *
When these legal barriers were broken down, we fast
became what the experts now call a "pill taking, drug
oriented society."
W It has reached such drastic proportions that now it
has become necessary to try and put the brakes on
with new regulations and laws. Frankly, we thought
0 the public had their needs served better when
medicines were only sold by people with training and
knowledge of drugs.

Defeat Wakulla War Eagles and Rutherford Rams

St. Joel

Josh Jenkins capped a night of
producing 17 points with a booming
slam-dunk at the final buzzer to give the
Sharks an 83-79 win over a tough and
stubborn Wakulla War Eagle team here in
the R. Marion Craig Coliseum last Friday
Jenkins wasn't the only Shark which
held the Sharks on top of the score for the
better part of the game. Veteran Durey
Cadwell pumped in 10 big field goals and
three free shots for a team high 23 points for
the night. Michael Pittman was right behind
with 22 big points and Doug Robinson added
The Sharks were still a little shaky
under pressure Friday night, reflecting
their late start while other teams were
getting experience under their belt. For
instance, the Sharks had as much as a 14
point lead in the second period, but the War
Eagles buckled down and removed eight

Jps Rec(

points of that lead by the half time period.
In the third period, the War Eagles
erased some more of the Shark lead, down to
only one point by the end of the third period.
In the last period, the lead changed hands.
time and again until the Sharks went into the
final minute with a three point lead on the
shooting of Cadwell, Jenkins and Pittman.
With seen seconds left, and the score now
at 79-77;(Sharks, Demetre Thomas hit both
ends of afoul shot to put the Sharks up 81-77.
Then, on a fast break, Wakulla's Franklin
hit a lay-up with only two seconds remaining
on the clock ,and the score 81-79. The Sharks
inbounded the ball under pressure, got it
quickly to Jenkins who went up for his slam
dunk to put the game out of reach of the War
Dana Mills led both teams in scoring with
his 25 points. Coach Jim Belin said, "He just
shot the eyes. out of the basket all night
Belin said, "We're still rusty. We gave
up that 14 point lead, but our guys just kept
coming back and put forth that effort it took '*
to win this one. Wakulla is one of the
toughest teams in the' Panhandle this year.
They're ranked eighth in the state. We had
to work for this one."
. Belin said, "Lack of practice with
fundamentals like. passing hurt us -in the
third period, but we're making improve-
ments and we'll get better as the season
goes on."

Durey Cadwell paced a quartet of Sharks
who scored in double figures as the Sharks
scored on nearly all of their opportunities to
put the ball up.
Jumping off to a big 10 point margin in

dominate the game as their sizzling shooting
put them so far ahead, the Rams just
couldn't do anything about it. The Sharks
out-scored the Rams in every period except
the last, when the Rams had a three point
With Cadwell leading the way with his 18
points, Josh Jenkins put 17 points on the
scoreboard, Robinson had 14 to go along

the leading Shark scorer in a close game
added 12.

Coach Jim Belin said, "We were
extremely hot tonight. We couldn't miss.
When you match this with the. fact that
Rutherford was extremely cold and got so
far behind they just couldn't catch up, you
have a situation in which all our team gets to
Belin predicted the game Friday night
with Blountstown "will be a close one.
Anytime Blountstown walks onto the court
with Port St. Joe, it's going to be a good
game. They can be losing every game of the
season, but they will play us well." _#
Belin went on to point out, "They're on a
sort of a roll just like we are. We've both won
three in a row, now, so it should be a real
shoot-out Friday night."

Those Over 70 Make A

Drastic Impact on Care

Joe Allen, administrator of
Gulf Pines Hospital told
Rotarians last Thursday,
that while medical costs are
regrettably going up and up,
there, have been some posi-
tive strides made in medical
care, also.
"When was the last time
you, ever heard of anyone
having diphtheria or polio or
any number of once common
diseases?" Allen asked. He
said that while medical care
has exceeded the limits of
affordability, it has also
ridded us of some of the most
feared maladies of history
within the past few years.
With the advent of health
insurance in the 1930's,
health care began to grow in
sophistication "because oth-
ers were helping to pay for
those hospital bills and those
doctor bills". The payment of
medical bills was spread out
over a large segment ot
people with the continued
popularity of the health in-
Allen said the growth in
care of senior citizens and
changes in Medicare pay-
ments by the Government
will also make some changes
in medical care services.
"The fastest growing age
group in America today is
that segment of the popula-
tion over 70 years of age.

They will have a drastic
impact on our medical care
as well as on other segments
of society," he said.
Allen said the Medicare
program had encouraged ex-
pansion of medical facilities.
"Medicare was paid on the
cost of procedures in the past
and encouraged expansion of
medical treatment to the
point of sophistication it is
today. With the reduction in
Medicare payments, we pre-
dict there will be more
changes in the future." Allen
said hospitals will be paid in
the future on a flat fee for a
specific illness. "If it costs
more to treat the patient than
what Medicare allows, the
hospital has to eat the
overage" Allen said.
Allen said the high costs
have resulted in sky-rocket-
ing expenses, especially in
the area of mal-practice

insurance. He pointed out
that the mal-practice insur-
ance rate is making it
difficult for Gulf Pines to
attract a surgeon to Port St.
Joe and is the main reason
local doctors have quit doing

Many bright students with
