County's Delinquent Tax

Bills Will Be Advertised

Unpaid Certificates Will be Sold At Auction May 31

Gulf County Tax Collector,
Eda Ruth Taylor said this
week she is closing out the
1985 tax billing rolls and
making preparations to ad-
vertise unpaid tax bills next
week. Taylor said the adver-
tisements will run for a
month before the unpaid
certificates are finally of-
fered for sale at auction on
May 31. "Tax payers have
until that time to pay their
unpaid taxes before their
!certificates are sold", she
said. Those paying taxes
during the month of May
.must also pay the cost of
advertising their tax bills as
delinquent,as well as pay the
tax bill.
Taylor said those tax cer-
tificates which are offered
for sale will be auctioned off
to the lowest bidder. That is,
' the person offering to buy the
certificates at the ,lowest
interest rate may buy the
'certificates. The tax payer
then owes his taxes, plus
advertising, plus interest, to
the person buying the certifi-
cates. If he does not pay the
taxes then, the holder of the
certificate may claim the
property on which the taxes
are owed.
Even though Taylor said
there are currently some 350
parcels of property on which
the taxes have not yet been
,paid, "This reflects a good
Response to the 1985 tax
billing": Taylor" pointed out.
there is still some $100,000,
owed in taxes which have:
become delinquent, "but we
billed out $4,023,000 in taxes
back in November. Of some
2,500 parcels of taxable pro-
perty billed, only 350 have not
been paid on", she said.
Taylor pointed out that
Florida law prevents her
from selling tax certificates
on homesteads on which
taxes of less than $100 are
owed. "If the tax bill on a
piece of homestead exempt
property is still more than
$100 and unpaid, we must sell
the certificate. If it is less
than $100 we cannot", she
said. The county must pur-
chase these certificates and

It took. the loss of both feet in

Raffield told The Star, "I've
been' a fisherman all my life and
thought I was doing what satisfied
me most. It was the only job I knew
how to do. Then came the loss.of my
feet and I had to find something to
occupy my mind and hands and I hit
upon this idea of making things with
tools, from wood. Now, I am the
happiest I have ever been in my
whole life. I am completely at peace
with my Lord and I'm doing what I
like to do."
Such an attitude isn't unusual'
among people, but one might say it
is unusual in a person of Raffield's
circumstances. At 68 years of age,
he has had to change life-time
habits and activities. He didn't
change because he wanted to. He
changed because he had no other
A few years ago, Raffield went
into a hospital to have some tests
made on his heart and circulation
system. Something went wrong
during the testing, causing doctors
to have to remove both Raffield's,
feet, surgically.
Before the trip to the hospital,
Raffield-like most Raffields in
these parts-was a commercial
fisherman who lived outside and
followed -a robust life. After the
surgery on his feet, he was
confined to a wheelchair and forced
to reshape his life.

Georgia Man Is Shot;

Wewahitchkan Drowns

One man was drowned and one still is
lying in a hospital -intensive care unit in
critical condition as the result of two tragic
mishaps during the past week here in Gulf
Robert Joyner, age 20, of Cairo, Georgia,
was a shooting victim early Wednesday
morning of last week, and is still in very
critical condition. John Foy Scheffer, 24, of
Beacon Hill is under $50,000 bond and
charged with shooting Joyner in the right
side with a .22 caliber rifle.
According to the Gulf County Sheriff's
Department, Joyner and a friend,. Dennis
Rich, also of Cairo, had come to Port St. Joe
Tuesday to work with a construction firm
and were to stay in a house at the beach.
According to Chief Deputy Mike White, Rich
said the two had gone to a beach restaurant
to eat supper and after a time were headed
back to where they were staying. They
couldn't find the right road to turn on and
went as far as the Wonder Bar before
realizing they had passed their turn. They
turned around and came back to Scheffer's
Gulf Station and recognized it as being near.
where they were staying.
They stopped to try and get their
bearings, when Scheffer drove up in a
pick-up truck and told them to move on,

saying this was "his place" and he wanted
them to move on. Joyner reportedly got out
of his vehicle and approached Scheffer's
truck to explain, his presence and ask for
Scheffer's help in finding his way. Scheffer
reportedly poked Joyner in the face with a .22
rifle and when Joyner stepped back, shot
him in the right side. The bullet lodged in
Joyner's back.
Joyner was taken to a Bay County
hospital for treatment, where he is still
under medical care.
.Saturday afternoon, Nathaniel Rober-
son, 38, of Wewahitchka, died when he
apparently fell out of his boat while running
in the Chipola Cut-off.
Sheriff Al Harrison said witnesses sawv
Roberson in his boat and said he started
moving around in the boat, rolling over the
side and falling in the water.. "He was in the
boat by himself", Sheriff Harrison said.
Sheriff Harrison said there is no
suspicion of foul play but that an autopsy was
being performed on the victim to determine
the actual cause of death.
Sheriff Harrison said a search for
Roberson's body started almost immediate-
ly after he fell from the boat and the body
was recovered within about an hour.

Observed with Parade
Veterans and a small crowd of interested persons
gathered in the City Park on St. Joseph Bay, to rally on the
occasion of Loyalty Day Saturday, after the local VFW
Post sponsored a parade up Reid Avenue to start the
Past State VFW Commander Jack Wise defined the
Loyalty Day "as another of those days in which we can
express loyalty to our nation and support for our flag".
District Commander Chuck Shoemaker said Loyalty
Day wasn't a "new" observance. He gave the history of the
special emphasis on national loyalty, going .back to 1958,
when it was nationally approved by Congress as a special
day of observance.
Wise defined Loyalty Day as the American answer to
the Russian May Day celebration. He pointed out the
Russians observe May Day as the beginning of their
revolution. Americans observe Loyalty Day as a
determination to oppose Communism.
Gulf County Sheriff Al Harrison was the main local
speaker, charging his listeners to be proud of their nation,
their state and their county, declaring their loyalty to a

ask Miss Alma-she knows a
lot more about horse racing
than I do.
The one I did see was a
good one though. I don't ex-
actly know how the, race
came about, but I heard that
Claxter Moreland just up
and told Nickey Joe Stafford
that his horse could beat
Prince. Now, ole Nickey Joe
had a right smart of spunk
and that challenge would
have been more than he
could stand, so I guess that's
about all it took. I do know
that one Saturday morning

we all gathered up down in
Mr. Archie Moore's bottom
field and marked us off a
race course. Claxter's horse
was named Star and it sure
was a pretty animal. And he
looked fast. Of course
Nickey Joe was one of our
closest neighbors as he only
lived about 6 or 8 miles down
the road from us so we natur-
ally was a'pulling for Prince.

THIS IS THE time of the year
when everything needs doing. It's
busy, busy, busy. If you are poor and
hired out, there's no way to get around

you and the season is too far gone to
train anything or take advantage of
any largess this time of the year may
have to offer..
S. For instance, the garden man who
-writes the columns for The Star each
and every week-Roy Lee Carter-
hasn't said it's time to spray for the
mole crickets yet. There are mole
crickets already doing their thing,
moleing about'and cricketing along.
Last Thursday afternoon, I
sprayed for mole crickets.
We usually set Carter's column a
week or two in advance here at The
Star and I noticed the other day where
he said mole crickets were one of the
main enemies of grasses here in
Friend, Ralph Walton was giving
me some advice about yard care the

never waters, never sprays his grass

Don't you hate people like that?
Here most of us fertilize, mow, water,

be named Blaze, Prince and
Star. And what's wiong with
Trigger or Silver or Scout?
Our horse was named
Alexander. My dad named
him after Grover Cleveland
Alexander, the old baseball
pitcher that did such a good
job for the St. Louis Cardi-
nals against the Yankees in
the 1926 World Series. Old
Alex wasn't a race horse. He
just plowed a little and pull-
ed a wagon into town on
Saturday. About the only
time he ever broke out of a
walk was when my dad
would unhitch him down in
the field somewhere late in
the evenings-then old Alex
would head for the barn as
hard as he could go. You
know, if we could have put*
that barn down at the end of
that Kentucky Derby race
track and got those folks to
run that race late in the
evening-why, Alex might'
had a chance. Of course
that's a silly idea 'cause I
don't think they let :horses
with simple names run in the
Kentucky Derby.
I used to marvel at how old
Alex would work twice as
hard getting back to the barn
after his work was over than
he did when he was supposed
to be working. Of course I've
known a person or two in my
time that approached work
in about the same manner.
My older brother, Leon,
brought a RC Cola down to
Mr. Archie's bottom to
watch the big race. I asked
him for a swallow of his RC
and he said, "This is not an
RC it's a tulip mint". He
said all the folks that watch
the Kentucky Derby drink
something called a tulip
mint. Now, Leon is one of the
smartest guys I know and I
sure looked up to him but it A
tasted like an RC to me.
We didn't have a starting
gate so Mr. Archie dropped
his hat and Star and Prince
took off like they were shot
out of a cannon. Now we
didn't bet on this race for two
real good reasons: 1) my
Mother would have skinned
us alive for such a thing, and
2) nobody had any money.
This race was for something,
,much more than money-
they were running for com-
munity pride. I tried to get
down by the finish line but all
the men and the bigger boys
were down there so I watch-
ed it from about the midway
point. When they thundered
past me Prince was about a
half a length in the lead and
that's the way they finished,
although I couldn't actually
see the end of the race from

Rotary Hears About Ambulance

"Gulf County has received 10 years of good ambulance county can grow through the natural course of
service from its volunteer organizations", Andy Miller- improvement into meeting the new state requirements.

Ambulance service, told the Rotary Club last Thursday. Dusty Wolters of Gainesville and Wheelettes Lynn Aman
"The county has received the emergency services of a and Helen Singletary.
number of well-trained volunteers, who knew what they
were doing and had received top-flight training",
SMillergren said. The emergency medical professional said
training had been provided the Gulf County squads by Gulf
Coast Community College, "and Gulf Coast has the best
emergency medical and nursing courses in the state of
Florida. Their marks are higher than any other school in
the state", he said.
The squad leader went on to describe how a growing
demand for the service and more complex state
requirements had forced the Port St. Joe volunteer squad
out of business and mandated the change to the full-time
professional squad. Millergren said the county had no
choice but to furnish the service. "It is a state law that the
county do so", he pointed out.
"Now, the county finds itself faced with even more and
stiffer state regulations", he said. "Here in Gulf County,
we maintain what is known as a 'Basic Life Support'
system and the state of Florida has now said we will
maintain an, 'Advanced Life Support' operation if we are
to transport patients carrying IV's or other life support
machinery, from one hospital to another".
The emergency director said this upgrade in service
. calls for a considerable expenditure of money to equip the,
vehicles and provide the advanced training needed by the
personnel. Millergren said new state requirements call for
a Paramedic to be in an ambulance when it is transporting
such. a patient, and that presently Gulf County does not '
have enough qualified Paramedics or available registeredI I
nurses with special training to meet the requirements of
the state.
Millergren said the county is now in the process of
asking for a variance from the requirement until the

Both Taylor and Harrison
said the only problem they
are having with the permits
is a lack of signs in the
beaches area, telling of a
need for a permit before
driving- on the beach. "The,
county is in the process of
getting these signs prepared
and put up and when they
are, our job will be made
easier", Sheriff Harrison
said. The signs will also warn
that the speed limit for
driving on the beach is 25
miles per hour.
Taylor said, "We've had
comments from the new
permit requirement which
have been both good and
bad". Both Taylor and Har-
rison felt the good comments
out-weighed the bad and that
the permits seemed to be
doing the job they were'
created to do.
S People who use the beach
regularly can purchase -a
permit, good for four years of
driving on the beach, for only
h. $5.00. A visitor to the area
may purchase a two week
permit for $2.50.

Blood Pressure Checks

High blood pressure is one
of the Nation's major health
problems with an estimated
60 million Americans having
an increased risk of stroke,
heart attack, and kidney
disease due to elevated blood
pressures. Convincing evi-

dence exists that being over-
weight, having high sodium
and-or excessive alcohol in-
take are. associated with
pressure elevations. Combi-
nations of risk factors such
as smoking and hypertension

cardiovascular disease.
Today, many health pro-
fessionals, community pro-
grams, voluntary agencies,
social groups, churches and
family members work to
promote high blood pressure
control. Along with hyperten-
svie drugs, weight control,
decreases in sodium and
alcohol intake, and a de-
crease in smoking, much
high blood pressure can be
controlled once the problem
is diagnosed. Gulf Pines
Hospital will be offering free
blood pressure checks during
the May observance of High
Blood Pressure Month. Come
by any week day between the
hours of 12-4 p.m. and let
them help you make sure you
are not one of those millions
with high blood pressure.
