Take First Step

to Replace Bridge

DOT Says Local Input Needed to Decide Route to be Followed

The first tentative step was taken for replacing an old
and sometimes cantankerous drawbridge across the Gulf
County canal at Highland View on Tuesday of this week.
Florida Department of Transportation representatives
came to Port St. Joe to meet with local officials and
property owners involved to determine alternatives for
ways to route the bridge and its approaches.
Larry Kelly, a Project Development Engineer for DOT
and his assistant, Glenn Smith, spent an hour and a half,
going over the tentative first steps toward planning the
new bridge and feeling out the citizens and government
representatives present as to where the bridge should be
placed and what plans have already been discussed.
Mostly Kelly was interested in the availability of land and
which location would be most affordable and which would
serve the needs of local interests better.
Kelley said it would more than likely take the rest of
the current year and, most of the next to locate the bridge
and get working drawings and plans completed for
contractors to.give bids on the new structure. He stressed
it would probably be around .1989 before the bridge is
St. Joe Paper Company had its top man present,
Chairman of the Board J. C. Belip, to assure Kelley St. Joe
Paper would give the DOT its cooperation in building the
project. Belin said the company was ready'to work with
DOT in any way they could to bring the project to
Ed Ramsey, of the Port St. Joe Port Authority, read a
letter from its chairman, George Tapper, who is currently
in Minnesota, pledging the Port Authority's cooperation in
planning for an expanded ship channel opening in the span.
The Port Authority wants, and has paid for 10 extra fee! in
height and an additional 25 feet of spanning width to allow
for entrance to the canal by larger' sea-going barges.
Standards of DOT are. for a 65 vertical and 100 foot
horizontal clearance on their high rises.
: Charles Shoaf, another member of the Port Authority,
asked, "Where are you going to put it?"
Kelley answered that not a lot of thought had gone.into
the final location of the bridge. "There are many things to
be considered", Kelley said. "We have given some thought
to how to place the bridge in the same general vicinity, but
none tq movingto a different location" KeJley said. ..
Shoaf pointed out the Gulf shoreline is getting more

congested every day. "In the next 10 years, it may be too
congested for the type traffic the highway carries now and
we'll want it moved".
Smith said the DOT would be expected to provide some

sort of crossing at the Canal at the present crossing, if the
draw span were moved to another location. "We can't just
abandon Highway 98 without local approval", he said.
Kelley said the big decision to be made first is to place

the bridge so as. to affect as few property owners as
possible and to provide access to points now served from
the Canal in both"directions.
Gene Raffield gave the support of the fishing industry
in tentative bridge plans. "We are currently in a trend
where the extra span bf the high-rise bridge would serve
our needs on into the future", he said.
Property owners, Phil Earley, who operates- a
hardware store on some of the property to be affected by
bridge construction, and R. A. Skipper, who operates a
service station in the same locale, expressed their concern
that almost any configuration would affect their
,Kelley said.it would still be some time before the route
of the bridge is determined. Local thoughts in the past
consideration of the bridge were to place it just west of the
current bridge and use dredged material, to build up:
eroded shorelines along Highway 98 in the Highland View
Kelley said another knotty question to be settled in the
next few months, is where to place the service roads which
would carry traffic back toward the raised approach to the
span to serve business, industry and dwellings left undec-'

Board Wants Barricade Moved

In one action, Tuesday night, the County
Commission agreed to sanction public access to
private property and in another they asked a
private citizen, to remove his signs, barriers,
etc., off public property.
Troy Davis of .Overtreet came to the
Commission complaining he had received a
letter from the chairman of the Commission
instructing him to remove his signs, posts' and
other barricades from a dedicated public street
in Overstreet, The Commission said they had
received complaints of Davis blockading proper-
ty which had been dedicated as a street, but. ,
which had never been developed by the county,
except to use the property for a ditch.
Davis said he was bothered by motorists
using the property during the night to speed, do

acrobatics with their cars and disturb him in
general. He reported the motorists also came
into his property as well 'as in the street area.
Davis said the property barricaded belonged
to him and presented a map as evidence of his
The Commission attorney, William J. Rish
advised Davis the official description of ,the.
property in the records pointed out the property
was a dedicated street, regardless of what the
map he had in his position, showed.
The ,Commission told Davis he could put
posts, fences, gates, etc., on his own property to
protect it, but.that he would have to, remove them
from the street right of way.
In other actions concerning property, the
Commission agreed to give their support to a

Deal Says No Need to Threaten

to Get Fence Moved on C-30E

Troy Deal of Orlando,
who has extensive land
holdings here in Gulf Coun-
ty, removed a fence from
the county road right of
way at Lighthouse Bayou
on C-30E last week.
The fence had been
placed on the right of way
by workmen putting a
fence around Deal's pro-
perty, closing off the
mouth of Lighthouse
Bayou to boaters. The
Bayou was used by sports-
men who launched boats
into St. Joseph Bay at that
The Commission sent

Deal an official request
and a time limit in which to
remove the fence from the
right of way and from in
front of the bayou en-.
Thursday, workers were
on the scene, taking the
fence down and re-locating
it on Deal's property.
Deal wrote a letter to the
Commission, reminding
them he gave the road
right of way for C-30E and
his firm built the road in
the first place, indicating
he was not in the habit of
taking advantage of the
county or the public.

In language which failed
to mask his chagrin at
being notified of his en-
croachment in such a
manner, Deal wrote that in
the future if he is contacted
directly about matters of
concern, he will gladly
cooperate with the county.
He pointed out there was
no need for the county to
take the measures they did
to get the fence removed.
The letter pointed out he
had letters of permission
and permits for the fence
from DNR, DER and the

Hospital Sale Imminent

The Port St. Joe City Commission
agreed to a transfer contract for sale
of the Gulf Pines Hospital in a special
meeting Monday, but failed to give the
Mayor, attorney and City Clerk
authority to execute the agreement at
the special meeting.
Only three members of the Board
were present at the special meeting,
Mayor Frank Pate and Commission-
ers Bill Fleming and Nathan Peters,
Jr. After the requirements for the
present owners of the hospital-Bap-
tist Medical Center in Jacksonville-
to follow in order to protect the
interests of the City, Commissioner
Fleming made a motion to authorize
the Mayor, Clerk and Attorney to sign
the agreement with BMC. Fleming's
motion died for lack of a second.
Mayor Pro-Tem James B. Roberts
was absent, so Mayor Pate could not

vacate his chair to second the motion.
The agreement the City will
require BMC to sign, and which the
medical center has agreed to, would
require BMC to pay the City of Port
St. Joe $200,000 immediately on sale of
the facilities and in addition, guaran-
tee payments of $50,000 a year for
the next six years for a total of
The City has also insisted that a
reverter clause be inserted in any sale
agreement, transferring the building
and its equipment back to the City in
case of any default. The City would
also assume ownership of the certifi-
cate of need under which the hospital
operates in the event of any default in
the future.
Baptist Medical Center has been
approached by Health Care Manage-
ment Corporation of Columbus, Geor-

gia, to purchase 'the hospital. HCMC
are specialists in operation of small
hospitals and are attempting to
purchase several small town hospitals
in the Northwest Florida area.
Baptist Medical Center is under
agreement to the City of Port St. Joe
since purchasing Gulf Pines four
years ago, and must give the City
satisfactory guarantees that agree-
ment will be satisfied before they can
receive permission to sell.
The City Commission is entering
the agreement in order to guarantee
continuity of hospital operations here
in Port St. Joe.
Presumably the City Commission
will again, take up the matter of
designating authority to sign the
agreement at its next meeting, August

About the only thing which
smacked of Mafia or organized
crime in the raid against an illegal
-drug supplier last week by the
Sheriff's Department, was a plastic
drinking cup with the words,
:"Godfather's Pizza" printed on the
side. Of course, we all recognize
this isn't organized- crime.
While the business had no
inkling of organized crime on the
premises, we wonder if that made
the business more respectable?
We're all quick to think about
organized crime or the mafia when
we encounter, such crimes which
are of such a despicable nature. No
local person would think, to enter
such a business on his own. Or, so
we think.

No Need to Dangle

A Carrot

I talked to Mr. Wesley
Ramsey, our esteemed
editor-in-chief, about my ef-
forts in this small article. In
the wake of some recent
"news media" events I
wanted to know if writing a
column like this made me a
member of the news media.
He said that it could, but he
had read my last couple of
stories and he said I had
nothing to worry about. He
allowed as how nobody was
a'going to mistake me for a
real newspaper man. That
was most encouraging'
because- after the hostage
situation with .TWA Flight
847 (or was that Flight 747)
and the President's opera-
tion, I'd just as soon not even
remotely be connected with
the news media.
We should have known
folks that when CBS started
passing off "60 Minutes" as
being "the unbiased truth"
we were in trouble. The Leb-

anese hijackers that seized
the TWA jetliner wanted and
needed a little publicity.
Reckon we gave it to them?
And it was more than just
the publicity, it was the man-
ner in which they gave it to
us. We could sense the
excitement with the T.V.
people as the SPECIAL
during the Saturday morn-
ing cartoons. You got the
same "excitement" as they
interrupted the baseball
game that afternoon. And
the same "excitement" as
they inter....
Pretty soon you began to
feel that the "excitement"
was because the world is
watching and listening to
me. The news event became
secondary to the broadcast.
Yoq ever listen to Howard
Cosell do a ball game on
T.V.?. As you watch you get
the impression that the ball
game is not the important

thing to him; no sir, it's a
chance for Howard to show
the world what a vocabulary
he has. You know what I
mean? It's not a plane hi-
jacking anyone-it's a news
media event.
President Reagan's recent
operation is possibly the
worst I've ever seen. What
ever happened to a little old
fashioned dignity and
respect in the news reporting
business. For crying out
loud; we are talking about
the President of the United
States of America. Sure, he
is news, everything he does
is news, but somewhere
along the line the media has
got to show a little common
,, sense. Or it looks like they
would anyway.
Sam Donaldson at a press
conference kept asking
White House spokesman
Larry Speakes who was go-
ing to be running the country
while the President was in

surgery. He insisted on an
answer. Speakes said that
had all been taken care of.
Sam was persistent, he still
wanted to know just how the
chain of command was to be.
Maybe Sam didn't need to
know that answer. Maybe
our country didn't need to
know. Maybe the Russians
didn't need to know ...
But if you thought the
media was a little rude
before the surgery, shucks
they were just warming up.
After the surgery they had a
live news conference with
'the team of doctors that per-
formed the operation. You
know, I would have thought
that those doctors would
have been the medical ex-
perts in that room, but you
couldn't tell it from the way
the questions and answers
were going. It was like it
couldn't have gone that well
and the President is old and
it's worse than you are let-

ting on and what are you
holding back . . . Did you
)iear anybody in that crowd
cheer and thank God when
the doctors said it went well?
Somehow I feel that
cancer is a private, family
matter and I resented any
questions relating to it. They
had lots of them and those
doctors were doing the best
they could to explain that it
was too early to tell if the
growth was cancerous or
not. I kind'a believed the

I Feel Left Out...Another Year Has Passed and My Class Didn't Reunion

I FEEL LEFT OUT of the main-
stream of what's happening these
It isn't your usual generation gap
where those of us who are a more
mature number of years in age feel
the world is whizzing by too fast. It
isn't that at all.
It isn't like most of us who live in
small communities and feel we are
being forgotten when the government
money, the new installations, the new
battleship bases, or some other
magnet of hordes of people pass us by.
Such things as that don't bother me
too much. So long as we have just
enough people here, to attract the
necessary services and some enter-
tainment to go along with our work
day, I'm happy.
If it were a matter of wishing for
life in the fast lane, I'd merely move
up to Atlafita and join three of my four'
brothers. As a matter of fact, I feel
they are the ones who need some
adjustments in the type environment
they live in; not me in mine.
Of course, I join the legion of

S+ + + +.
THAT ISN'T WHY I feel sort of
left out of what's happening these
,I feel' left out because my
graduating class didn't have a reunion
this year-or any other year.
As a matter of fact, my graduat-
ing class has never had a class
reunion. Everybody these days are
having reunions: graduating classes,

of the crop of Port St. Joe High School,
who stepped out on our own way back
in 1946.
There were 22 of us. That isn't
very many, but it's enough to have

esley R. Ramsey

told about his graduating class' 20th
reunion. They all knew one another
and were still on speaking terms.
I read Lewis Grizzard the other
day, and his high school graduating
class had just had its reunion.
I've read several area weeklies,
recently, where the editor had attend-
ed or is planning to attend a class

ourselves a reunion. I think every one
of those 22, except one, is still alive.
+++ + +
IT ISN'T THAT we can't get
together for a reunion. Somehow,
we'll probably do it next year,
because it will be our 40th anniversary
of having Supervisor of Public In-
struction Tom Owens hand us our
diplomas on the stage in the old school
building which stood right about
where the back building line of the

nursing home is now.
We all marched in to get our
diplomas in an auditorium which
didn't have air conditioning. People
fanned to keep cool. As a matter of
fact, I don't remember there being a
single air conditioned building in Port
St. Joe the year the 22 of us graduated.
So, when we get together for our
first reunion, we'll have at least one
thing to talk about.
There was no public address
system in the auditorium. We just had
- to talk loud enough to be heard beyond
the front row.
We didn't particularly have to
hurry with the ceremony because
there was no television set at home
waiting with piped in entertainment
for us to burry home to. Actually,
when the 22 of us graduated, would
you believe we were the main
attraction that night here in Port St.
Joe? We WERE the entertainment
that night.
And we haven't even gotten
together once to remember it!

THE BEST THING about class
reunions seems to be getting to see all
those people you remember, once
again and see how they have
changed while you remain the same
young, handsome devil you were the
day you graduated.
Everyone remembers their old
school buddies.
I remember, especially some of
mine who still livrehere in Port St. Joe.
There was Grace Meyer, Carl and
Billie Jean Guilford, Mary Lydia
Baxley, Margaret Adams, Grady
Player and of course, my wife,
Frenchie. We're all still here.
When you get right down to it,
that's a pretty good number out of a
class of 22 still hanging around. If we
all got to feeling left out of the swim of
things at this time of the year, like I
'have, we could all have us pretty near
a class reunion right by ourselves,
couldn't we?
Before next year and its reunion
season rolls around, I think I'll kick
that thing around in my noggin a time
or two.

Mexico Beach, Florida


The Gulf Coast Utility
Company, which has applied
for a consumptive use permit
in the same general area, has
requested an administrative
hearing to determine whe-
ther its application consti-
tutes a competing use of
available water.
Lighthouse Utilities oper-
ates a water system in the
Cape San Blas and St. Joseph
Peninsula area. Gulf Coast
Utilities has been requesting
a franchise or permission
from the Gulf County Com-
mission to operate a water
and sewer system in the
same general area.
Northwest Florida Water
Management District must
approve all requests to take
substantial amounts of water
from the ground aquifer.

was completely in sympathy with Doyle's
request "but", he said, "we don't have that
problem over here in Gulf County. A good portion
of our woodlands are owned by St. Joe Paper
Company and they let ps use it for hunting".
Branch went on to say the people of other
counties had abused the open land privilege here
in Gulf County in the past and were probably
responsible for some lands being closed off to
public use. The Commissioner also explained the
Southwest Forest Industries land here in Gulf
County'is available to hunters, but they must
secure a permit before using the land.
Branch made a motion for the Commission
to "give our support in any way we can" with
Doug Birmingham seconding the motion. "I
.presume you're aiming at the Southwest Forest
and Prosper Energy lands here in our county",
he stated to Doyle.
Several acres of farmlands in the county
have been restricted to use by hunters for the
past several years because of damage to the
.land, crops and livestock by hunters in the past.
Doyle said his group was not seeking access
to farmlands; only to woodlands under the green

Dam Removal Permits Can be

the Dead Lakes Dam removal, it was
announced at a recent Northwest Florida

Army Corps of Engineers can legally be
issued at the District level in Jackson-

Opponents of the dam's removal
requested and received a continuance of

saying they needed more time to prepare

Some experts estimate that
the first dogs were tamed

to remove the dam following two straw
votes taken in Gulf and Calhoun counties
which overwhelmingly favored the
dam's removal. Opponents of the dam's
removal say removing the dam will
devalue their lakefront property. Pro-
ponents of the removal effort say the
dam's impoundment of the Dead Lakes
has degraded water quality and fishing.
Permits from both the Corps of
Engineers and the Florida Department
of Environmental Regulation are needed
before the District can take any action on
removing the dam.

belt law.
Belle duBose appealed to the Commission
Tuesday night, to consider establishing an
animal shelter here in Gulf County.
"I think Gulf County could 'afford one and
I'm certain a lot of people would be pleased by
it". Mrs. duBose said, "I'm concerned and I
think a lot of other people would be concerned
too". She said several times pets had been
abandoned near her home and she has cared for
them and found new homes the best she could.
Her appeal was some sort of operation to care for
the animals without having to put unclaimed
animals to sleep without first trying to find them
a home.
In other business matters, the Commission:
-Agreed to install water service to Butler's
Restaurant if they had enough money left in their
. construction budget after final accounting.
Butler has asked for the service, which was not
on the original plan and which Commissioners
have ascertained would cost some $6,000 to
install. Butler said he has a price from a private

contractor to put the service in for half that
amount. The Board agreed to make an intense
study of the finances of the Beaches system and
put the system in if money is available.
-Approved a request made by Evan
Williams, to purchase a new fire truck for the St.
Joe Beach volunteer fire department with
capabilities to fight fires in multi-floor buildings.
Williams said the Beaches would pay half the
price of a new piece of equipment. The
Commission agreed to ask for bids for the truck,
equipped and un-equipped.
-Agreed to allow pre-payment of "dry
taps" on the Beaches water system for not less
than six months nor more than 12 months at a
time. The bills would be discounted $2.50 each
month for pre-payment, or the amount charged
to read meters and send out bills each month.
-Heard presentations by Certified Public
Accountant firms to conduct the annual county
audit. The Board heard from May, Zima and Co.,
Michael Tucker, CPA; Touche Ross and
Company and Williams, Cox, Weidner and Cox.
The Board will make a decision on which firm to
engage at a later meeting.

The retirement test- the
limit on the amount of
earnings people can have
without affecting their Social
Security benefits- is differ-
ent for self-employed per-
sons. People who continue' to
do some work after retire-
ment or receive income as
farmers, insurance agents,
and sales persons, and other
types of self-employment
should note the differences so
as to avoid any disruption of
their monthly benefits to
Like regular wage earners,
the self-employed person is
subject to the annual earn-
ings limit, which was $6,960
in 1984 and is $7,320 in 1985 for
people 65 and over., For
people under 65 the 1984 limit
was $5,160 and is $5,400 in
1985. There is no limit on
earnings for those age 70 and
over. Earnings over the
annual limit cause the
monthly benefits to be re-
duced $1 for each $2 of
earnings over the limit.
The first year of retire-
ment is where self-employ-
'ment income is treated dif-
ferently. A monthly test is
usually applied during the
first year. a person starts
receiving benefits. This per-
mits a person to retire any
time during the year and
have his or her earnings

count against the retirement
test only for the months after
retirement. For regular
wage earners, the monthly
test is one-twelfth of the
annual test. This means that
a person may earn any
amount during the year as
long as he or she does not
earn 'over the monthly limit
beginning with the month in
which, he or she starts
receiving benefits.
However, because the in-
come of the self-employed
tends to be irregular- it may
be received months or years
after it is earned- a test of
"substantial services"' in the
business or trade is used.
During the first year of
retirement, a person who"
receives earnings from self-
employment can get a full
benefit for any month he or
she doesn't perform substan-
tial services in self-employ-
. Whether or not services.
are substantial depends on a
number of factors. Tbey
include the, amount of time
devoted to .the business or
profession, including time
spent planning and man-
aging, the kind of work done,
and how the work compares
with what the person pre-
viously did.

At a time when acid rain is
alleged to be worsening
throughout the U.S., a report
released recently indicates
Florida's rain acidity has
decreased slightly over the
past three years.
"We are not sure whether
the decrease in rain acidity is
a trend or natural variation,
so additional data is needed.
The findings, however,
counter claims by some
groups which state that Flo-
rida has an acid rain crisis,"
said Ken Wiley, General
Manager of the Florida Elec-
tric Power Coordinating
Group, Inc. (FCG), an or-
ganization of 37 Florida
electric utilities which is
funding the study.
"The results strongly sup-
port our research path to-
ward understanding acid
,rain before considering con-
trol legislation. The research
decision has been a wise one
in the best interests of
Florida's electric consum-
ers," Wiley said. .
The report presents find-
ings on Phase IV (the last
complete phase) of the $3.2-
million Florida Acid Deposi-
tion Study conducted by
Environmental Science and
Engineering, Inc. (ESE), an
independent environmental
research group. The study
was begun in 1981 to develop
information on the magni-
tude, variability, sources,
effects and Mnethods of con-
trol of acid rain in Florida
and is one of the most
comprehensive state pro-
grams ongoing. It was ini-
tiated by the FCG in the early
,stages of concern about acid
"Phase IV was primarily
an additional year of rain
analysis and a wrap-up of
various study programs,".
said Dr. Axel Hendrickson,
chairman of the board of
ESE :and project director.

"Each study program- rain
monitoring and analysis,
source attribution, and eco-
logical effects studies- is a
piece of the acid rain puzzle
which when placed together
in a final report will provide
a clearer picture of Florida's
acid rain situation."
Work has already begun on
the final report which is
scheduled for completion in
early 1986. The Florida Acid
Deposition Study has been
coordinated with the Florida
Department of Environ-
mental Regulation (DER)
and was reviewed this year
by a panel of nationally
recognized experts chosen by
DER. The panel "found the
technical competence of the
work in all three areas to be
high," pointed out weak-
nesses in the study, but
concluded "There are only a
few state efforts of compar-
able technical scope and
During Phase IV the aver-
age pH of rain ranged from
4.6 in central Florida to 4.7 in
the northern and southern
parts of the state based on
analysis of samples collected
from seven monitors located
from the Panhandle to the
Florida Keys. pHis measured
during Phase IV (9-15-83 to
9-14-84) were generally less
acidic than those of the
previous year. (The pH scale
ranges from 0-14 with 7 as
neutral. The higher the num-
ber, the more alkaline a
solution; the lower the num-
ber, the more acidic. It now
is generally recognized that
the pH of natural rainfall
ranges from 4.8-5.2).
At completion of the Phase
IV field work the- FCG
decided to continue acid rain
monitoring and analysis for
an additional year (9-15-84 to
9-15-85) to gain more infor-
mation with which to deter-

mine whether rain aciditiy is
increasing or decreasing
over time.
Acid rain's effect on the
environment has been a
critical concern during the
acid rain debate. The Study
indicated that an environ-
ment's exposure to acid rain
does not guarantee that
damage will occur. Rather,
susceptibility to damage is
affected by the interplay of
biological, chemical and phy-
sical processes occurring in a
body of water and its sur-
rounding watershed as well
as rain pH.
Phase IV was designed to
improve the ability to assess
the potential sensitivity to
Florida's aquatic and terres-
trial systems to acid rain.
Since Florida is unique com-
pared to northern environ-
ments where acid rain is
thought to have caused dam-
age,-.- Florida-specific re-
search was necessary.
The Phase IV ecological
program evaluated: 1( the
changes in soil chemistry
and microbiological activity
as a result of increased
acidity (pH 4.6, 3.6 and 3.0),
2) whether lake productivity
and the nutrient cycle is
negatively affected by in-
creased acidity, and 3). the
role that chemical or biologi-
cal processes in lake sedi-
ments play in neutralizing
acidity. The ecological pro-
gram demonstrated that
many factors can interact to

neutralize the effects of
acidity, and that relatively
low pH levels (3.0) were
needed to cause significant
and .rapid effects in the
Evaluation of natural,
manmade, in-state and out-
of-state sources of pollutants
that could lead to acid rain
was scheduled for comple-
tion during Phase IV. How-
ever, delays in availability of
meteorological information
from the U. S. National
Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration prevented
completion of the work. The
source results are scheduled
for publication as an adden-
dum to the final report early
next year.

During the month of Au-
gust, Social Security will
celebrate its 50th birthday.
The tragedy of the situation
is that for the most part,
there will be little or no
celebration of this momen-
tous occasion. However, if
the facts were known, each
resident, business and civic
leader in Bay and the sur-
rounding counties would cer-
tainly not only want to'
celebrate the occasion, but to
do it in grand style as well.
Factually, Social Security

pays big into the economy of
Bay as well as Calhoun, Gulf,
Holmes, Jackson, Walton
and Washington Counties. If
you are now wondering how
big, I'll tell you. In Bay
County alone, Social Security
pays $5,812,000 each month in
benefits. Add to this $559,000
monthly in Calhoun, $720,000
in Gulf, $880,000 in Holmes,
$2,546,000 in .Jackson,
$1,293,000 in Walton and
$1,106,000 in Washington.

You may have noticed
small pustuleq-like growths on

otherwise healthy looking
plants. Perhaps you have
wondered what these strange
looking, often round shaped
formations are, what causes
them, and whether they
damage plants. These
growths are known as galls.
They are actually quite com-

ple feel they detract from
plant appearance.
Galls are abnormal
growths that develop on
plants in response to insect
stimulation. This means that
wherever gall 'forming in-

you're likely to find galls.
They're usually on the under-
sides of leaves, or on twigs

that causes it. Immature
insects are often found inside

cultural care of your plants
by paying close attention to
fertilization, irrigation, prun-
ing and other general main-
tenance. Some galls that
occur on stems and limbs can
be hand picked and destroy-
ed. Also several parasitic
wasps attack gall-forming
insects. These beneficial
wasps are active in late
spring and early summer.
So. you might want to avoid
using pesticides during those
Galls form on a wide
variety of plants, especially
on oaks. Some of the insects
that cause galls are aphids,
philoxera (fih-lo-er-ah), mid-
gets or gall gnats, psyllids
(sill-ids), and synpids (sin-ip-
ids) or gall wasps. Over 750
species of synpids alone are
found in the United States
and Canada. Of these, about
80 percent produce galls
specifically on oaks.
As you can see, there's
really not much you can do
about them, especially if you
have lots of oaks on your
property. Of course, you cayp
avoid killing beneficial
wasps, pick the galls, and
give your ornamentals good
care. But, otherwise, we
suggest you relax and take
comfort in the knowledge
that galls are not serious
threats to your prized land-
scape plants.

changes in different ways. With some medicines
special storage precautions must be taken to insure
that a sudden change in temperature does not occur
and effect the potency of the drug.

Fly Fishing Is Popular

Fly fishing is generally
viewed as a sporting method
for catching western species
such as rainbow trout, but
the method is popular among
some southern fishermen for
taking both bluegill and
largemouth bass.
"There's something about
a small popping bug twitch-
ing its legs on the water's
surface that some fish just
can't stand," says Dan Mc-

Caffry, president of the Fly
Fishers of Northwest Florida
in Pen-acola.
For a person wanting to
learn to fly fish, McCaffry
said probably the most im-
portant thing they can do is to
talk to an experienced fly
fisherman and get some
recommendations about
A beginner should start
with an 8 '2-9 foot rod, single

action reel and a line that
matches the rod.
McCaffry added that a
person can expect to spend
up to $50-S75 for a fairly good
flyrod outfit. Flies and pop-
ping bugs are available at
most bait and tackle stores
and. department stores that
handle fishing equipment
"Spring and fall are actual-
Iy the best months to fly fish,

The news of most concern
to all Americans involves the
removal of a cancerous tumor
from President Reagan. We all
hope and pray for his quick and
complete recovery. The medical
* reports are encouraging and the
President, although 74, is
strong and the outlook is bright.
President Reagan has begun
a return to a normal routine and
there is no question but that he
is running the country. The
President invoked the 25th
Amendment to the Constitution
to temporarily turn powers over
to Vice President Bush during
the surgery and this example
proves the wisdom of that
amendment to provide for an
Acting President when the
President is temporarily in-
Colon cancer is the number
two cancer killer in America and
is 'often overlooked by the
public. Perhaps the fact that
President Reagan has had to
face colon cancer will make
people more aware of this
serious disease and cause
people to have examinations
which could save their lives.

The House of Represen-
tatives has completed action on
the Energy and Water Ap-
propriations Act for the coming
fiscal year. This important
money bill establishes the fun-
ding level for many projects
throughout the nation. I am
pleased to be able to report that
the House of Representatives,
in keeping with all actions we
have taken this year, kept the
bill within budgetary limitations
we set for spending.
During House floor delibera-
tions, additional steps were
taken to insure that taxpayer
dollars are spent wisely and that
only projects that can be
justified are allotted money.
The Shell Point project in
Wakulla County is a deserving
new project and I am pleased
that the Appropriations Com-
mittee and the House of
Representatives agreed with my
request for funds. In, Franklin
County, Apalachicola Bay

ing and I was successful in ob-
taining the. necessary funds for
