Leaves Residents of Gulf County with A Big Clean-Up Job
Hurricane Elena acted just like a tourist this past.week
end, when she visited the Frontier Coast of Florida. The
storm came withif 66 miles of the coast here in Gulf County
on Friday (within sight of land for a hurricane) then
decided to look at the entire Gulf Coast of Florida while it
was here. The storm then moved west to within a short
distance of Cedar Key and stalled, whipping the coast with
64 miles per hour winds, staying there for 18 hours before
deciding to take one more look at that fabulous Gulf Coast.
Sunday morning, the storm headed back to Gulf
County after depositing about seven inches of rainfall on
Friday and Saturday and littering the area with limbs,
leaves and debris. Gulf County thought it had escaped with
only light damage and none of the dreaded high tides which
usually accompany a hurricane.
Sunday morning, it was time to pull the shelter covers
over your head again because Elena was on her way back.
This time her visit was in earnest as she skirted the
shoreline all the way from Cedar Key to Pascagoula,
Miss., wrecking havoc all the way.
Elena's closest approach to Gulf County was Sunday
evening about 6:00 p.m., when the eye of the storm was
some 40 to 45 miles south of Cape San Blas, barreling
along parallel with the coast at 10 to 12 miles per hour,
according to Wayne Snyder meteorologist with the National
Weather. Service at Apalachicola. Snyder said that at this
time, winds were whipping the coastline at about 66 miles
per hour with gusts of up to 90 miles per hour.
Snyder said the mercury dropped to 29.37 at the
weather station and that hurricane spotter planes clocked
winds at the center of the storm at 141 miles per hour at
5,000 feet while the storm was skirting the Gulf County
While Port St. Joe didn't get any great damage from
the expected sources of winds and rising water, fire
broke out in two places in the area, causing traumatic
and considerable monetary damage.
Falling electrical wires caused the home of Frank
Linton of Highland View and the Pastorium of the Long
Avenue Baptist Church'on 17th Street to burn. Linton's
home burned to the ground and the Pastorium had its
ceiling and roof burned completely out. Both Linton and
Dr. Dan Duncan and their families were in shelters when
S. a" ethro*=er1w .hedAta Jast^Mll4ebeloningsti
and many of the Duncan's possessions were destroyed
by the fire.
Standard damages from hurricanes was comparative-
ly light here. in Port St. Joe and the surrounding area.
Heavy erosion and water' damage was expected at the
beaches in south Gulf County, but the heavy damage just
didn't come. One home, only partially built, suffered
extensive damage while numerous walkways, patios and
beach-front cabanas were washed out and damaged. All
roads in the beaches areas remained passable although
one stretch of road on the Peninsula was damaged by
water and the road at the end of the Cape >an Blas road.
was crumbled at the water's edge where it leads to a boat
Here in Port St. Joe, reports were that trees fell on only
two houses, inflicting only minor damage. Possibly the
greatest damage was suffered by the James Wilson home
on Garrison Avenue, where a tree blew over on a metal
carport on the front of the house, demolishing it.' Another
tree fell on the Ralph Walton home on Tenth Street, but
damage seemed to be minor to the home.
Numerous trees fell inside the City, from small
saplings to large mature oaks, pecans and pines. Several
fell only a few feet from homes and some fell away from
the house, rather than falling into it. One such instance was
the home of Mrs. Franees Brown on Monument Avenue,
where a giant oak near the house, fell toward the street.
The greatest material damage seemed to be
,inflicted on utilities inside the City.

without electric power, even though the Florida Power

Corporation office said yesterday they expected to have
all homes with. electricity again by the afternoon
Wednesday, barring any unexpected difficulties.
Power company crews from as far away as St.
Petersburg have labored day and night since the storm
to restore the power supply.
The telephone service remained virtually intact,
even though the long distance service to Franklin County
was completely severed by the storm. Higdon Swatts,
telephone company executive, said the company had
huge sections of roof blown off their switching station
building at Filth and Long, causing considerable
damage inside the building and damaging the
micro-wave system. which handles long-distance to
Franklin County. "The water shl '' d the machinery out,
completely isolating Franklin County", Swatts said.
Swatts said trees were down on several cables
interrupting service to several homes, but hopefully all
customers should be back on line bvtoday or tomorrow.
Robert Newman of Gulf Cable TV said he really
couldn't start looking for troubles until the power supply
was restored at several key transmission points
throughout the City. "The downed power lines have Qu
down too", Newman said. "They promised us power by
noon Wednesday and we should have everyone back on
the line in the early afternoon Wednesday", he said.
In the meantime, the people of Gulf County were faced
with a gigantic clean-up problem. With windows broken
out in about eight business houses in downtown Port St.
Joe, the roof blown off at least two establishments and
trees and debris down all over the town, the entire week
will probably be devoted to clearing away debris and
hauling off trash.
People left the beaches and Port St. Joe area in record
numbers for Elena's visit. Governor Bob Graham ordered
evacuation of low-lying areas along the coast and local law
(Continued on Page 5)
According to records kept at the Wastewater
Treatment Plant, the Port St. Joe area experienced
some 13.58 inches of rainfall from readings taken
Saturday morning through Monday afternoon. The main
portion of the precipitation came on Saturday, when 7.55
inches were recorded. Sunday was the lightest day when
only .48 inches were collected in the rain gauge. The
records are kept in the laboratory by Pete White and
NAACP Adds Demands
As Price for Dropping Class Action Suit
The NAACP was apparently not
satisfied with a list of three demands
made against the City of Port St. Joe
two weeks ago by the Equal Employ-
ment Opportunity Commission and
added some demands of their own to
the list, which were presented to the
Commission Tuesday night.:
The EEOC had filed discrimin-
ation charges against the City for
"failure. to employ blacks in the City
Hall". The City defended itself by
revealing it had not hired anybody in
the City Hall for severalyears, using
the information as its denial of guilt in

Dickens Leads Voting
Ray Dickens, a contractor, came
out of the City Commission vote in
Wewahitchka Tuesday with a one vote
lead over his nearest opponent,
veteran Commissioner Thomas Mc-
Daniell. Dickens polled 115 votes and
McDaniell was able to count 114.
Roger Jones, a third man 'in the
Commission race had 107 ballots cast
in his favor.
Dickens and McDaniell will run
off the election, but the exact date of
the second primary election was
uncertain at press time yesterday
afternoon. Supervisor of Elections,
Cora Sue Robinson said the Wewa-
hitchka City Charter didn't address
the matter of a run-off election
'directly and her office has asked for
'an interpretation from the state
elections office. "We're hoping to
have the run-off on September 17"

for the City servants, the voters said
"no" to increasing the Mayor's pay

The refendum to increase the pay
was defeated, 150 to 126.
Sharon Holmes, Wewahitchka
City Clerk said the newly elected
Commissioners would take office on
Jack Connell as Chief of Police. Prior
to that time, he had been assisting
Connell in his duties on a part-time
basis, often without pay.
Mayor Traylor told The Star
Thursday night, after the meeting,
"We tried to work the situation out.
We offered Glass assistance and tried
to get him to agree to attend the

Mayor Traylor said the Chief's
general attitude and a failure to take
direct orders prompted the dismissal.

To Discuss Moving Gulf's
Set-Back Line Inland
The Department of Natural Resources is attempt-
ing to place even more stringent controls on coastal
building here in Gulf County. Dewayne Manuel, county
building officer, it appears as if Gulf is the testing
ground for the new concept which is scheduled to take
the place of a set-back line established about four years
According to legal advertisements and displays
placed in the Gulf County Courthouse, the new set back
lines would move the lines for building without state
permission another 200 feet landward from the high
Water line. ,Already the building line has been,
established at 70 feet from the shore. Inside this
set-back designation, property owners must get special
permits from the state in order to build, and meet

The Commission approved the
Mayor's suggestion with the dissent-

meeting, attorney W. J. Rish said,
"As I understand it, you want us to
meet with EEOC and get them to
accept their first agreement with us,

Peters objected, saying he didn't
introduce the previous list. "I was just

understood their wishes correctly and
to proceed with the negotiations.
Clerk Alden Farris said the City
had been notified its carrier of many
years would no longer write commer-

automobile insurance would nearly
double, if the coverage could be

by Travellers that we were the last

.. Bless Your
CChildren Before School
By The Rev. Jerry R. Huft
SRector, St. James'
To 'bless' literally means
to put a 'good word' on some
one. In the language of the
Old Testament, a blessing
Swas generally a material
one. For instance, in Pro-
;verbs 11:22 it says, "The
S; blessing of the Lord makes
r you rich, and adds no sorrow
'with it." The New Testament
Emphasizes more of a spiritu-
al element in its blessings.
EThis is reflected in the words
-of St. Paul, when he said, "I
'know that when I shall come
Eto you, I shall come in the
Sfullness of the blessing of
'Christ." (Rompns 15:29)
For believers, a blessing
,has two aspects. There is the
,material side of a blessing,
-but there is also the spiritual
All concerned parents will
do everything possible to
insure their child's material
[vell being. The back-to-
tchool sales in August and
.September demonstrate that
-merchants are aware of the
jirge to give children every-
thing they might need.
But not every parent has
considered the vastly more
urgent need for their child to
.receive spiritual blessings.
Vulnerable children and
youth find themselves
thrown together into circum-
stances over which they have
ii6 control. They are trans-
ported in full bus loads of
unruly companions. In their
classrooms, they sit in as-
signed seats. They are told
when to stand, walk, eat, talk
and exercise. They are given
which must be completed
before the next class. In
'general their lives are con-
tfrolled by commandments,
and punctuated by the ring-
ing of bells. As anyone can
see they need all the spiritual
assistance they can get.
The importance of praying
for our children cannot be
over-emphasized. Each day
they confront temptations
and trials which would tax
the spiritual stamina of any
adult. And they are continu-
ally faced with the challenge
of decisions which can be life
altering. Our students must
encounter temptations and
decisions without the benefit
of either the experience or
the broad based knowledge of
more mature people. A pa-
rent's prayer can be the
crucial difference in this
The community, more es-
pecially the parents, ought to
be praying for the .entire
school system. All of us
should be asking Almighty
God to affect the attitudes
and skills of every person
who is involved in the educa-
tion process. *
The school board, bus
mechanics, teachers, cust-
odians, cooks, administra-
tors, maintenance crews,
secretaries, the superinten-
dent, and the students all
must approach their work
with the proper attitudes.
Breakdowns anywhere in the
system can hinder the goals
of public education.
The goals of education all
find their focus in the stu-
dents. These students need
moral power to overcome
their, confusion, doubts, alid
fears, as they go through the
awesome task of growing up
in an information oriented
society. They need superna-
tural guidance if they are to
make right-minded deci-
sions, and. they must have
godly endurance to resist the
burdensome 'temptations of
life. Without this guidance
and endurance, educational
goals will be missed.,
No student should have to

face the stress of growing up
alone. They need the assur-
ance that God is on their side.
Parents can help their child-
ren gain this confidence.by
blessing them each day.
As -a loving parent gives
their student a lunch, or
lunch money, that parent can
also give a blessing: Let the
children hear their parents
ask God to protect them from
harm, to open their minds to
learning, and to close their
eyes to temptation..
If we pray for our schools
and those who labor there,
our student's days will go
better, and so will those of
the parents. So parents,
whatever else you do, don't
send your children to school
before you have blessed
them. Read Numbers 6:22-27
for a pattern.

Nineteen eighty-five was declared by
the Governor and Cabinet as "Florida
State Parks Golden Anniversary Year":.
This dedication is in recognition of the.
first 50 years of Florida State -Parks-
"The Real Florida".
By the end of the Great Depressibn-of
the 1930's, Florida had acquired and
partially developed nine new state parks
to take advantage of a Federal employ-
ment program known as the Civilian
Conservation Corps. Such well-known
parks as Florida Caverns, Fort Clinch,
Highlands Hammock and Myakka River
were joined in providing quality outdoor
recreational opportunities through the
years by additional acquisitions, such as
John Pennekamp Coral Reef, Blue
Spring, Lake Kissimmee and St. Joseph
.Peninsula. After 50 years of growth, the
Florida State Park System contains over
125 separate units. These areas are
managed as examples of. the original
domain, "The Real Florida", for our
enrichment now and.for all times.
During 1985, each park will help
commemorate the system's'first 50 years .

conducting an orderly evacuation of the southern half of
the county. "Nearly everybody was gone", Police Chief
Bob Maige said of Port.St. Joe. The Gulf County Sheriff's
office stayed on the job around the clock with Civil Defense
and enlisted the aid of the Florida Highway Patrol, Game
and Fish people and the Marine Patrol.,
A National Guard contingent was called in from
Tallahassee and 50 men were dispatched to Port St. Joe
and Gulf County to protect the property of those who had
left. Sheriff Al Harrison said there was virtually no looting
reported in' the county. "There has been none reported to
us", he said. Meanwhile, several members of the National
Guard were stationed' in front' of stores with broken
windows -to protect them from potential looters. The
looters never showed up, but the Guard was there if they
should be needed. -
J'All in all, we're lucky and we had a good effort from
everybody with duties to perform"; Chief'Maige said. His
men,. plus several members of the Volunteer Fire
Department stayed oh duty for the entire duration of the
