Signs Mark Home of State Champs

After being three months in the making, signs were
erected at the three entrances to the City about 10 days
ago, telling the world that the Class AA state football
champions live here in Port St. Joe. The signs,
commissioned by the City of Port St. Joe, were
prepared and hung on the city limit signs which are
located at the city boundaries on Highway 98 and
Highway 71.
The Port St. Joe High School football team, the
Sharks, won the state championship in a final game
held here in Port St. Joe against Wildwood. The Sharks
won the game, 15-12 after defeating Taylor County,

Pace and Wakulla Santa Fe, in close games on the way
to the finals. -
The Sharks will remain: tate champions until.
December, when a new champion 'will be determined.
Coach Shaw Maddox said the Sharks are going t6 try
for a repeat performance. Regardless of who the state
champion is at Christmas time, the signs will be in
their position for some time to come. It isn't every day
a small school like Port St. Joe wins a state
championship and now that they have done it twice in
the past 13 years, reminders of the accomplishment
are going to be kept on display for a while.

Board Wants Fence

Taken Off Property

Files Answer to Writ of Mandamus

State rules and regulations are
now in effect for taking scallops in St.
Joseph Bay, but the war over where
the shellfish may be taken has not yet
been fully settled.
Ray Strickland, with Florida's
Department of Natural Resources
was present at Tuesday's County
Commission meeting, reporting that
his department is. receiving com-
plaints, about a fence which a,
land-owner, Troy Deal of Orlando, has
placed across Lighthouse Bayou on St.
Deal put the fence up late last
year, but the report Strickland made
to the Board Tuesday is the first
complaint filed.
Strickland reported to the Com-
mission the complaints, his depart-
ment had received had prompted him
to research the title of the property
and he found the U.S. Coast Guard had
title to the bayou and Deal owned land
on each side of the bayou, which is
located across 30-C from what is
locally known as the '"Stump Hole".
Strickland also reported that a
portion of Deal's fence is on county,
-right of way. The DNR. official said
complaints his department has re-
ceived were to the effect that the fence
prevented scalloping the adjacent
waters and prevented launching of
small boats in the body of water.

Strickland asked the county to
request Deal to remove his fence from
county right of way and to officially
request the Coast Guard to require
Deal to remove his fence from their
The Board unanimously instruct-
ed the chairman to notify Deal
concerning the county property and to
make the request of the Coast Guard.
Strickland said Deal had asked
for permission to erect his fence, but
the permission had never.. been
granted. The fence in question is an
eight foot chain link fence which
encloses a parcel of land-mostly
owned by Deal-west from the Air
Force .installation to the "Stump
Hole" area.
As was expected, the County filed
its objections to a Writ of Mandamus
which was filed against the county by
Gulf Coast Utilities, Inc., last month.
The Writ charged that the county had
denied utility franchises to Gulf Coast
Utilities, Inc., unfairly.
The answer, filed this week by
attorney Fred Witten defended the
county's actions in denying a permit
to Gulf Utilities to install water and
sewer lines for private developments
which were to be scattered from hear
the* State Park to near Indian
Pass. The county had failed to grant a

franchise to put in a water and sewer
system to serve the south Gulf County
area, particularly the beaches. The
corporation then asked for permission
to put in the services for their own
developments, which the county
denied and fostered the Writ being
The County denied most of the
points made in the complaint, saying,
in effect, that Gulf ,Coast Utilities'
plan did not comply with. conditions
set out by the county for utility
Gulf Coast Utilities say their plan
meets county specifications and they
should receive the permit.
In defending the county's action
and their answer to -the Writ,
Commissioner Doug Birmingliam
said at the Tuesday meeting: "'It
seems ridiculous that we're bMimg
sued over this in the first place . . .If
we don't have the right to deny. a
franchise or permit, we're wasting
our time and lot of somebody else's
time by sitting here presiding over
their issuance in the first place.".,
Commissioner Everett Owensi ob-
served: "If we don't have the right of
refusal, we just need to open it all up
and let everybody have at it!"

Murder Case,

Goes to0 -ury

Clyde Yeomans, 31, of Dalkeith, went on trial Motiday
of this week, charged with the January 19 shooting of Rick
Harper, 30, of White City.
Yeomans is charged with first degree murder by the
State of Florida. First degree' murder carries the
stipulation that the act was premeditated.
Circuit Judge Fred Turner is presiding over the case
which was delayed from the previous term of Gulf County
Circuit Cdurt.
The prosecution presented its case on Tuesday of this
week and the defense was to make, its case yesterday
(Wednesday). The case was expected to go to the jury
sometime Wednesday afternoon:
The prime, argument used by the state prosecutors,
Attorney General Jim Appleman and Harry Harper, was
that since the victim was shot 11 times with a .22 caliber ri-
fle, the killing was premeditated after the first shot was
It was brought out in the first day of the trial that
Yeomans and Harper were on the Intracoastal Canal in a
boat on January 19. Testimony established that both had
been drinking and were on the way,: to the White City
landing when they decided to go racoon hunting. On the
way to the landing, according to a statement given after
the shooting by. Yeomans, they spied a raccoon up a tree
and got into an argument over who would shoot the animal. .
Yeoman's statement said Harper slapped the gun out of
Yeoman's hand as he aimed at the raccoon. The gun went
off and the bullet struck Harper.
Defense attorney Fred Witten was to plead the case for
Yeomans yesterday using the defense that Yeomans was
intoxicated and the shooting was an accident.

The Port St. Joe City Commission agreed to
a revised agreement with' Baptist Hospital
Tuesday of last week, provided Baptist decides
to re-sell the local institution., Baptist said they
had received feelers'from a Georgia corporation
which specializes in small hospital operations,
about acquiring Gulf Pines.
Baptist Hospital of Jacksonville has owned
Gulf Pines for four years and has a complicated
agreement for payment and providing certain
services for the Port St. Joe area. Under the
agreement, Baptist still owes the City approxi-
mately $476,000 for the facility, due in future
The Commission met with Baptist represen-
tatives in a work session Tuesday afternoon,
prior to Tuesday night's meeting to iron out the
details which would place responsibility for the
remaining payments due the city, should Baptist
actually sell the hospital. The Commission, of
course, said Baptist would be responsible for the
payments and Baptist agreed to the responsibil-
The only matter to be decided was the
amount of responsibility and how it would be
Under the new agreement, which was
hammered out with only one objection on both
sides, the City would receive a cash payment of
$200,000 on cosummation of any sale agreement.
In addition, Baptist would be responsible for

payments of $50,000 a year for a period of eight
years. The annual payments would include
interest. Should Baptist wish to pay off the
indebtedness in a lump sum, their responsibility
would be $476,000.
The agreement was approved by everyone
except Commissioner Nathan Peters, Jr. Peters
gave no reasons for his nay vote.
The Commission denied the request of St.
Joseph Telephone and Telegraph Company to
close the alley behind their main switching
terminal building on Fifth Street, but gave the
company some relief in their request by
declaring one-way traffic for a section of the
St. Joseph Tel and Tel had asked the alley be
closed as a safety factor for their people crossing
to their parking lot on the south side of the alley.
The Commission agreed to make the alley
one-way traffic, south from Saveway Super
Market to Long Avenue, install two speed humps
in the road-way and ask St. Joe Natural Gas
Company to study re-locating a large gas meter
in the alley.
In another related item, the Commission
also denied a zoning change requested by Terry
Cutler. Cutler wanted a change in an Eighth
Street address, allowing a business to be
established on the street, which is presently
zoned as residential.

Cutler wanted to put in a photography studio
at 229 Eighth Street.
In other business matters, the Commission:
-Was advised it was illegal for the city to
furnish and install pipe for Zion Fair Baptist
Church. The City has followed the practice of
burying drainage pipe for land owners who
purchase their own pipe. Zion Fair had asked
that the City purchase the pipe and lay it in a
ditch alongside their property.
-Were advised by Clerk Farris that the
permit had been received to rehabilitate the boat
landing at the west end of Fifth Street, but Clerk
Farris said unexpected expenditures this budget
year had left no funds available for the project.
Farris said the City could proceed with the
project in the next budget year which begins on'
October 1.
-Approved the bid of U.S. Tank, Inc., of
Chipley, in the amount of $41,780, to paint and
repair the 200,000 gallon water storage tank on
Long Avenue.
-Failed to second a motion by Nathan
Peters, Jr., to cease providing a weekly garbage
pick-up service for the country club. The club
pays $62.00 a month for the service. Mayor Pate
advised Peters the club makes their facilities
available to the City's recreation program free
of charge and he felt the garbage pick-up was

School Board Told to Vacate
Courthouse Office Space

The Gulf County Commission notified the School
Board Tuesday that it was being dispossessed from a
portion of their Courthouse space currently being used
for offices.
The Board notified the School Board, by letter, that
the county and the Sheriff's Department needed the
space just west of the Sheriff's office, which has been
used by the School Board ever since the Courthouse
was built. The letter to the School Board, signed by
Eldridge Money, Chairman of the county board,
stated, in part, "This space was originally intended for
use of these two offices (Sheriff and Clerk of Circuit
Court) as a records and evidence storage area and the
Board has allowed the School Board to use it for many
years. However, with the continuous accumulation of
records and new growth within the county this space is
desperately needed."
Superintendent Walter Wilder said he didn't know
what the Board would decide on an alternate site for- -
the offices currently in the space. "This particular
office needs to be .near the records we keep in the
central office", he said.
In Wednesday morning's Panama City newspaper,
it was reported the Bay County School Superintendent,
Leonard Hall was going to recommend that the Bay
County Board accept Gulf County's plan for financing

May Be the Correct




Kesley Colbert's Country Column

Maybe the United States gov-
ernment has hit on the correct
formula to counteract terrorism
and highjacking of its airplanes.
This past week, with the
announcement that the United
States was going to boycott the
Lebanese airport at Beirut, the
Lebanese reacted in a degree of
panic that the artery of connection
with the outside would be effective-
ly shut down from non-use.
Lebanese president Amin
Gemayel charged that the boycott
was a "breach of international
law". The Lebanese had also taken
steps to ban armed militia from the
airport perimeter and erected bar-
riers to the runways to prevent
.unauthorized cars from driving
-.onto the runways.

A Snap!

At long last Port St. Joe has
received permission to repair a
boat launching facility which has
been in place for years.
A little over a weeIl ago,, the
City received a permit' from the
Department of Environmental
Regulation, which had been ap-
plied for more than a year ago, to'
make repairs to the boat launching
slip at the west end of Fifth Street,
The whole thing was held up
because the City wanted to repair
the slip in a manner which wouldn't
need repeating for some time to
come. In the past, the facilities
have been built of wood, which has
a habit of deteriorating in the salt ,
water in just a short while.
Now, we have to wait another
two or three months to get the
work done because unusual and
unexpected , expenditures have
pretty well zapped the City pocket-:
book this year. After getting the
permits, though, getting the money
should be a snap.


You know, I didn't think
much about it until the car
stopped and I realized that I
was actually here. 20 years
is a long time and I'm not too
much on reunions anyhow.
What if I walk up there and
no one recognizes me. Or
worse than that, what if I
walk up there and a few folks
recognize me but they don't
remember who I am. I
hadn't seen most of these
people since the day we
graduated from high school
back in May of 1965. Of

course, I'd talked to Buddy
Wiggleton the day before but
you know Buddy, his
memory never was much
even when he was younger
and chances are he might
have forgotten me since yes-
I stood there by the car
and was peering up at the
folks under the shed. At that
distance I couldn't make out
anybody. What if I get up
there and everyone is saying
"Hello, Kesley" and I don't
know them. How much do

people change over 20
years? My boys are looking
at me and saying, "Let's go
Daddy". They didn't know a
thing about 20 year class re-
unions and they didn't know
where we were going-they
just didn't want to stand
beside the car all day. My
wife stood waiting, patiently
as always, for me to start the
short walk up to the shed.
I took another long look at
the folks under that old shed
-still couldn't recognize
anyone. I couldn't even find

Buddy. I was kind'a nervous.
That was silly I thought
'cause I'd grown up with
these people. They were still
some of the best friends I'd
ever had although it had
been 20 years'.. . but heck,
the common memories we'd
shared growing up together
was a strong bond. These old
friends of mine would re-
member me-wouldn't
they? People like Emily
Young, Paul Long, Terry
Harrison, Betsy Dinwiddie,

member to ask Jane if she
could still open Coke bottles
with her teeth), Larry Ridin-

forget me-could they?
Well, we're all still stand-
ing by the car, the boys are
still saying "Let's go
Daddy", my wife is still
waiting patiently for me to
make a move. Do you sup-
pose that she understands
why we're just standing
there? I mean you're not go-
ing to admit to your wife that
you're a little apprehensive
about attending a 20 year
class reunion. Maybe appre-
hensive is not the right
word-how about' scared. 0
Shucks, I'm a going up there
and the few people that do
recognize me are going to
think "What happened to old
Kes - he sure has aged."
Nobody had seen us drive
up. I thought I'd just quietly
tell my family to get back in
the car and we'd silently slip
out of there and cut a trail
for the house. Why did they
have to invite me to this
thing anyway? Reunions are
so silly. You stand around
and pretend that no one has
changed, yet you know that
father time works on all of
us. My gosh, it has been 20
Of course I'd sure like to
see the old 'gang again. It

Pack Up

(Continued from Page 1)
Gulf's administrative assistant, Temple Watson
said a recent report from the State of Florida indicates
it's costing considerably less per student to keep
students in school in Gulf County than it is in Bay. "Our
figures are like $580 per student of county effort while
Bay County's is just a little over $600 per student."
Bay currently sends 117 students to Gulf County
and Gulf currently receives $180 per year per student
for the county effort in school financing. All state
funds, generated by the students, goes directly to Gulf
County. Watson said, "They really can't afford to do
otherwise. It would cost a minimum of $100,000 just to
transport their students to Bay County schools. Just
across the road is Gulf County. We have our
transportation services already there."
Gulf County has proposed that the state
Department of Education determine how much local
money is spent in educating Gulf County students,
based on reports filed at year's end, and assess Bay
County that figure for remuneration to Gulf. That is the
plan Hall has said he would recommend to his board.
A new band director was hired by the Board
Tuesday to serve Port St. Joe High School.
Watson said the Board has employed Darrell .
Lamar Weatherman to head up the band and� music
program for Port St. Jde.
Weatherman comes to Port St. Joe from Sneads,
where he served as band director for six years. For
most of these years, Sneads turned out a band 'with a
"Superior" rating, a rank which has eluded Port St.
Joe for several years. Weatherman is also the current
District 15 chairman in the Florida Bandmaster's
Association. .
Watson said Weatherman will probably' begin a
summer band program next week. '

Rainfall Gets Back

to Near Normal
Rains over the past week end brought some relief
to the Port St. Joe and Gulf County area, but the
amount of precipitation is still considerably less than
normal for this time of year.
After a dry month of June, in which only 4.32 inches
of rainfall was measured-mostly during the last week
of the month-and July started out doing a better job of
providing moisture during the first week of the month.
According to records kept at the Wastewater
Treatment Plant by the laboratory, Port St. Joe
experienced some 3.69 inches already in the month of
July, after the dry June.
James White, laboratory director, said their
records show June of last year was dry also. In 1984,
there were 3.37 inches of rainfall recorded. In July of
1984, the area had 17.55 inches of rain. With 3.69 inches
falling the first week, July 1985 may come pretty close
to matching' the rainfall for last year.

The Board agreed to Boyette's
deal, agreeing to spell out his duties
during the next few weeks and define
the county's responsibility for taking
care of "major repairs".
The Board also agreed for Boyette
to meet with Commissioners Owens
and Branch and come up with a set of
operational rules for the Beaches
system. The Board determined-that
all future hook-ups to the Beaches
system would cost a customer $425,
regardless of whether or not a meter
was in place.

This plan surfaces every
now and then .and I have
repeatedly stated my absolute-
and total opposition. Hopefully
it has ben laid to rest for all time.
Mindful of our water needs
for the future, I will work for and
support any reasonable and
sound'program to insure ade-
quate and safe water for all

A Senate subcommittee has
begun hearings on new immi-
gration reform legislation and I
am hopeful that the House will
begin hearings in the near
future. Last year both the
House of Representatives and
Senate passed far-reaching im-
migration legislation but in
differing forms and those dif-
ferences were never resolved.
Violation 'of our immigration
laws is a very serious problem.
particularly in Florida, Texas and
California. It cost the State of
Florida millions of dollars for
illegal aliens who take jobs from
American citizens and legal
aliens and who do not con-
tribute to our society.
One big issue last year,-and
sure to be considered this year,
is the proposal to grant amnesty
for illegal aliens who have been
in the United States for several
years. I oppose 'a blanket
amnesty program and believe
any such action should be taken
on an individual basis.
Another issue will be penal-
ties for employers who know-
ingly and repeatedly hire illegal
aliens. I support such sanctions.
- This is not aimed at the small
businessman who inadvertently
'hires an illegal alien. This pro-
posal is aimed at those in large
cities who run "sweat shops"
and pay the aliens subminimal
wages because they know they
can't complain to the police.
Law. enforcement officials
conduct raids on these busi-
nesses time and time again and
I believe we should have
penalties against the operators
of these illegal businesses.
Our immigration problems
grow worse each year and I
believe we should start action
and end the delays. Clearly, the
American people .want Con-
gress to act on immigration

Social Security

Soon to be 50

. August 15 will mark the
50th anniversary of the Social .
Security Act in the United
States. Most people will find
it easy enough to overlook the
occasion, but it.may be a
good time to take a new look.
at the program and the role it
plays in our lives.
For people now approach-,,
ing retirement age, the 50th
anniversary of Social Securi-. ;
ty should be a reminder of"
what it was like to be an older-
person 50 years ago when
they were in their teens.
Growing old then most often
meant economic dependen-
cy, if not poverty. In many
cases older people lived with
their children, not necessari-
ly because they wanted to,
but because the alternative
was the poorhouse.
How far we've come since
then is indicated by recent
studies which show that the
elderly are as well off as the
general population by some
measures. Major problem
areas remain with pockets of
the elderly, such as widows
and minority groups. How-
ever, as real income of thep
general population was de-
clining during the high unem-
ployment of the 1970's, real
income of the elderly con-
tinued to increase, reflecting
increases in Social Security
In fact, from 1970 to 1983,
Social Security. benefit in-
creases exceeded increases
in the consumer price index
(CPI), rising 273 percent as,
compared to 156 percent for
'the CPI.
However, how well the,
program works for the indivi-
dual worker may well depend
on how effectively he or she
uses it. And this means
realizing that Social Security
is not just'for retirement.
It's also designed to pro-
vide a floor 'of protection
when earnings stop because
of the "forced retirement" of
disability or in case of
premature death. Thus.,
people who get the most out
of Social Security- who
suffer the least drop in
family income when earn-
ings stop in retirement, dis-
ability,/or death-' use it as a�
base for financial planning.
They use a wide variety of
mechanisms-, pensions, pri-
vate insurance, IRA's; in-
vestments, savings, and so
forth- to assure that income
meets their individual and
family needs when earnings

these matters and Witten had
agreed. Pat Floyd, Attorney,
Gulf Coast Utilities, In-
corporated, again requested
his client be granted a !utility
permit, stating this ,had not
been brought before the
county appointed South Gulf
County Water-Sewer. District
Advisory Committee, but had
been applied for with the
person the county appointed
to review all utility permit
applications, Building In-
spector Manuel, who did not
approve the permit, there-
fore they were asking the
Board directly to approve
this permit. Upon question,
Manuel reported he rejected
the permit as the permitted
was not in compliance with
permit requirement and it
was his understanding it
would be approximately. four
months before this company
could comply. Upon motion
by Comm. Birmingham, sec-
ond by Comm. Branch, and
unanimous vote, the Board
supported the Building In-
spector, who is responsible
for permit issuance, in his
denial of the permit. Betty
McNeill, Chairman, Gulf
County Planning Commis-
sion, stated she was acting in
the capacity of liason be-
tween the Planning Commis-
sion and the Advisory Com-
mittee, as the Planning Com-
mission had suggested the
county appoint this commit-
tee. Mrs. McNeill also report-
ed the committee had extend-
ed an invitation to Gulf Coast
Utilities to meet with them as
directed by the Board. At the
Board's request, the Chair-
man stated he would meet

Schools, senior citizen or-
ganizations, churches,
unions, and other organiza-
tions with a special interest
in Social Security could make
the anniversary an occasion
for new educational and
informational efforts for
their membership. A variety
of activities is possible all
with the goal of alerting
people to the need to be
aware of'-their rights and
responsibilities under the So-
cial Security'system.
Among the activities that
have been suggested are
essay, contests, debate com-
petition; pre-retirement
.seminars, special programs
featuring Social Security
speakers, workshops explor-
ing current issues in Social
.Security, and programs fea-
turing members of the Con-
gress. Many other ideas are
possible, limited only by the
person's imagination.
The Social Security office
will be glad to help with any
special projects. We have
informational materials
available, including publica-
tions, films, slides, and his-
torical data. In addition, we
can provide speakers to
discuss any aspect of the
Social Security programs. Be
sure to call in plenty of time
so we can fit your event in
our schedule. We'll be glad to
help in any way we can. The
number is 769-4871.

with the local Plnning Com-
mission to report back to the
Board at a regular' commis-
sion meeting. Upon question.
by Comm. Birmingham, Gulf
County Planning Commis-
sion Chairman McNeill re-
ported they had completed a

been adopted by the Board
for - enforcement purposes
and were responsible for

er Chairman of the Board he

ments .on the present water
system ,in Cape San Blas
. from the members of the

and choose one organization
or' company to serve the

permit fee 'to be increased in

an independent engineering
firm to check the system at

tem in South Gulf County

Gardeners are confused by
terminology as it applies to
commercial fertilizers.
Terms such as mixed fertili-

or complete, have little or no
meaning to many gardeners:

bag, such as 8-8-8 or 10-6-4,
they are even more confused
as to the meaning of these
figures. I will try to explain

Dr. Robert J, Black with

which contains one (or some-
times two or three) of .the

When two or more fertili-
zer materials are mixed, the
product is called a "mixed

fertilizer contains all three of
the major plant nutrients

two of the nutrients are
present it is referred to as an
"incomplete fertilizer."

one containing the three
major nutrients in equal .
amounts. An 8-8-8 fertilizer is
a "complete-balanced" ferti-
lizer since it contains all-
three major nutrient ele-
ments and all three are
present in equal amounts.
A "complete-unbalanced"'
fertilizer is one that contains
all three major nutrients but
each is not present in equal
amounts. A 10-6-4 fertilizer is
an example of a "complete-
unbalanced" fertilizer.
Now, to get down to the
specifics of what the num-
bers on the bag mean. The
term 8-8-8 is the analysis or
grade designation of a com-
monly. available complete
and balanced fertilizer. The
grade or :analysis of a-
fertilizer' gives the percent-
age by weight of each of the
three fertilizer nutrients.. The
percentages are expressed in
terms of total nitrogen, avail-
able phosphoric acid and
water-soluble potash. Thus,
an .8-8-8 fertilizer contains
,eight percent total nitrogen,
eight percent phosphoric
acid, and eight percent water
soluble potash. The nutrients
are always listed in this
order on the label attached to
the fertilizer.
SA 106-lb.: bag of 8-8-8
obviously contains 8 Ibs." of
nitrogep, 8 Ibs. of phosphoric
acid and 8 lbs. of potash, or a
total of 24 Ilbs. of plant
nutrients. The remaining 76
lbs. consist of a filler or a
carrier of some kind. These

fillers may or may not have
some value as a source of
plant nutrients. Some fertili-
zer manufacturers include
micronutrients in the filler.
The micronutrients iron,
manganese, zinc, copper,
chlorine, molybdenum and
boron are required' in very
minute quantities and less
often than the nitrogen, phos-
phorus and potassium.
Two questions may come
to mind. These are: should
you use a complete-balanced
fertilizer or a complete-
unbalanced fertilizer? How
much should you use?
Generally, a complete-bal-
anced fertilizer should be
used. Without a soil test or
years of observation and
experience, you have no way
of knowing which of the three
major nutrient elements may
or may not be needed.
Therefore, a complete fertilih
zer is recommended to take

care of any possible deficien-
cy of the three major nutrient

Mayor Jim Heathcock told The Star, the notice was'
filed with the Town for Charles Parker by attorney Cecil G.

The notice says, in effect that the beaches are not-

for their use and not to the public. The notice asks that.
signs be removed designating public beaches between the

"I don't know what the underlying, reason for the

Florida Power Corporation
is alerting all new residents
in its 32-county service area
about the- efficient use of
electricity through an in-
novative program called
"Fresh Start."
- Based on the "Welcome
Wagon" principle, a Florida
Power representative makes
!an appointment with the new
resident. And then, at the
Customer's convenience,
goes to the customer's home'
and explains the utility's
various energy awareness
programs including the Av-
erage Billing Plan, Load
;Management credit options,
how to read electric meters,
Home Energy Audits, Home

Energy Fixups, general en-
-ergy management tips and
payment assistance plans.

ers on a positive, helpful
note. Fresh Start and other

said Lee Scott, company
Onef the goals with Fresh
Start is to contact new
residents before they receive
their first utility bill in order
to provide information on
how the Florida climate
affects the electric bill and
how that effect compares to
their home state.
Overwhelming positive
comments were received
about the Fresh Start Pro-
gram in a Customer Opinion
Survey conducted by Florida
Power Corporation in the
outlying areas of Orlando
where the program was
The survey recorded 99
percent of the respondents as

ATV's Have Their Own Peculiar Built-In Hazards

They look like. overgrown
tricycles. But they have
three big balloon tires and an
engine that enable them to
traverse all kinds of terrain.
These are called all terrain
vehicles or ATVs, but they in
fact should not be used on
hard-surfaced roads.
ATVs have been adopted
by a number of farmers in
the U.S. for use in the fields

capability and the economy

many have been turned over

three years as a result of
ATV accidents. That many or

Toth Home

On Leave
Cpl. John F. Toth, (Sniper-
Scout), 2nd Marine Division
Camp Lejeune, U.S.M.C. is
home on a 30 day leave just
prior to ending a four year
tour of duty with the Corps.
John is visiting with his
parents on Cape San Blas.
He served with the Eighth
Marines who participated as
part of the Multinational
peace-keeping Force in Leb-
anon, August 1982- February
1984. He. was also in the
landing on Grenada-Carria-
cou, October-November,
I would like to express my
many thanks ,to everyone
who has been so good and
thoughtful to me while I was
in the hospital and after I
came home- for your pray-

cards, visits, and all the
kindnesses of love.
God bless each one of you. I
love you and God loves you.

dlebars. Tragically, 44 per-
cent of those injured in 1984
were under 16 years of age.
The problems with ATVs
appear to be related to .a
belief that the three-wheelers
are inherently safer than
two-wheeled motorbikes or
trail bikes, and riders are
using less care than riders of
other motorized vehicles.

The ATVs may be even less
safe than trail bikes because
they require more complex
maneuvers to offset a tenden-
cy to tip over in turns.
The lack of a differential
and front suspension make
the ATVs more difficult to
operate on hard surfaces. A
differential is the device in
the rear axle that allows the

rear wheels to turn inde-
pendently when making
turns and thus avoid skids.
On a soft surface, the
absence of a differential may
not present a problem be-
cause the rear wheels can
slide more easily. With only
one wheel in front, this is
more important than with
two wheels, as' there is no
