DOC Drops Its Litigation
Against Gulf County Jail
After holding the hatchet over the
head of Gulf County for nearly four
years, the Florida Department of
Corrections has dismissed a suit
against the county which was instiga-
ted early last year because of
alleged deficiencies in the Gulf County
For the past four years, the
county and DOC has been discussing
the merits and demerits of the jail

county moving slowly but steadily to

manner DOC wanted them changed,

Early last year, the DOC thought
the progress made by the county
wasn't fast enough, so they slapped a
notice on the county, which, in effect
said they would make the required
changes or face court actions which
would result in heavy fines for failing

part of Gulf County and the Sheriff's
Department has finally met with

Five Arrested On Major Criminal Violations
Face Charges of Possession
Dealing In Controlled Substances
Three St. Joe Beach residents
were arrested last week end by Gulf
County Sheriff's Department officers
and charged with drug offenses,
according to a Sheriff's department
Arrested were Thomas James
Vitale, who is being held on $15,000
bond: his wife, Ann Vitale, released
on $7,500 bond and Jeffrey Ross, who
was arrested and released on his own
Thomas and Ann Vitale are
charged with the distribution of
cannabis, distribution of cocaine,
possession of cannabis and possession
of paraphernalia and contributing to
the delinquency of a minor.
Ross is charged with contributing
to the delinquency of a minor.
Sheriff Al Harrison said a 17-year-
old girl was in the Vitale's residence
when the arrest was made, resulting
in the contributing charges.
Harrison said the department had
been investigating the couple for two
weeks, during which time an agent
had purchased marijuana on two
separate occasions. The investigation
resulted in the department securing a
search warrant for the home and the
warrant was served Saturday, result-
ing in the arrests being made.
The Sheriff said the search turned
up approximately $2,000 worth of
illegal drugs and paraphernalia was

ties Rick Pickren and Tom Shiver

the case. The search procedure was
led by Captain Jack Davilla and
Two Juveniles Charged with the
Burglary of Several River Camps
Several river camp burglaries, as
well as two burglaries of homes were
solved last week end with the arrest of
two juveniles, according to the Gulf
County Sheriff's Department. Accord-
ing to the Department, eight river
camps were broken into by the
juveniles just last week, with a
considerable amount of personal
property being taken.
The juveniles were apprehended
after Deputy Tommy Godwin had
received information concerning the
burglaries. After being taken into
custody, one of the youths led the
Sheriff's Department Deputies to the
hiding spots near Spider Cut on the
Chipola River, where several of the
stolen items were recovered.
An electric generator, shotguns,
batteries, fishing tackle, shotgun
shells, lights and other miscellaneous
items were taken, much of which was
recovered in the investigation.
Thursday night of last week,
camps owned by Bobby Burkett,
Gerald Griffin, Tommy Walker, Mike
White and James Pate were entered.
Also entered were three other uniden-
tified camps on the Apalachicola river
and the Douglas Landing office were
hit, with thieves taking gas cans,
batteries, fishing tackle and other
The items taken were valued at
The juveniles were turned over to
the Division of Youth Services and
taken to the juvenile detention center
in Panama City.
In the course of the arrests, the
Sheriff's Department also confiscated
a 14 foot boat, motor, trailer and
trolling motor from the juveniles.

Held for Ransom
School System Pawn In Tax Fight
We feel we must resent
the recent actions of Betty
Castor and other state gov-
ernment officials holding the
schools of our state at ransom
for the services sales tax law.
Don't look at these pages
in unbelief, now, because that
is actually what is happening
here in Florida: our schools
and their programs are being
held It ransom and we don't
believe there is any concrete
reason for it.
You Lake Gulf County, for
Here in Gulf County,
school people have had to stop
spending for needed materials
and services because the state
school people have told the
local officials they might have
to face a $350,000 reduction in
state money coming to the
school system here in Gulf
County. Can you imagine
that? Can you imagine our
school system here in little
Gulf County receiving $350,000
less than it was told to budget?
It would be utter chaos with
the local budget.
We feel this utter chaos is
exactly what the supporters of
the sales tax law were count-
ing on. With financial chaos on
a local level, supposedly local
people would get on the
bandwagon to maintain the
new tax law, simply so we
wouldn't have that $350,000
deficit in our local school'
The claim just might be
legitimate, but ask yourself
these questions before reach-
ing any conclusions in the
matter. Did your taxes reduce
on any item this year? No?
Then the state and county
must be receiving at least as
much tax money as last year.
With these 900 people a week
moving into Florida, the in-
come should be more. Surely,
all these new people aren't
totally tax .exempt.
Have you seen any ap-
preciable new expenditures in
our school system over last
year? No? Well, then, with
inflation practically nil, it
should take very few more
dollars to at least equal last
year's financial program.
What we're trying to say
is that with the same amount
of(or slightly more) dollars
coming into the school system
and with very few more
dollars going out, why the
$350,000 deficit threat?
We're no CPA, but that
one just doesn't fit!
This is why we say the
state officials are attempting
to hold our school system to
ransom to encourage us to
support the new tax law.

Shooting Skeet Sharpens Up the Old Reflexes for Those Darting Doves
I DON'T USUALLY mention the
name of a business here in this space
for two reasons. One, I'm in the
business of selling space in this
newspaper for those businesses or
enterprises who wish to tell you about
their wares. I make my living that
wayand giving away what one sells is
no way to make a very good living.
Too, it isn't fair to any competitor or a
business I might mention for free, for
me to spout off about his competition.
I'm breaking away from that
practice this week in order to tell you
about something I did last week,
which I have never done before. In
order to tell you about it, it's
necessary to tell you where it was
done. So, you just read on (if you are
still here) and forget I might mention
some specific business or other while
relating this tale.
I WENT SKEET shooting for the
first time in my young and tender life
As you know, it's dove hunting
time here in Gulf County, and I like to
go dove hunting, although I am a
terrible shot, in my latter years, when
it comes to shooting at these little wild
pigeons. I do get enjoyment out of
shooting at them, and, on occasion,
coming close enough to one to maybe

It was a tough week around The
Star last week. With the changing
temperatures and changing humidity,
everything acted up like a spoiled
child. Top that off with a batch of bad
offset plates for our newspaper press,
which kept popping off in the middle
of a press run, and they all add up to
one of those weeks one had just as
soon do without.

the suggestion came on Willie's part

partially because of lack of practice.
Willie is usually as blunt as last
week's razor blade, but he was
diplomatically trying to hone up my
shooting eye because we were suppos-
ed to go dove shooting this past
and shoot a few clay pigeons.
We rounded up grandson, Eric,
and Willie had to take his friend,
Arden, the left-handed shooter along,
and away we went.

It was a nice afternoon. I shot a

mature, grown up, able to understand
it's just a game. There are too many
serious problems in the world to
worry about the outcome of a silly old
ballgame. Right? It's kind'a foolish to
root for one "group" and hate another
"group" when you actually don't
know a single person involved with
either group. Right? Hey, I'm glad
that I have reached that mature place
in life that I can view a ballgame for
what it is just a form of entertain-
ment a break in the day's routine.
Nothing more, nothing less. Alas, it
wasn't always thus with me.
Before I matured I used to root
unashamedly for the St. Louis Card-
inals. I remember the '57 Cards finish-

was as close as they'd come since I'd

hard all summer. Musial hit .351 that

to the Editor
The October 8, 1987 issue of The
Star carried an article titled "M.B.
Canal a Necessity." The allegation
that most of the property owners are
here because of the fishing element or
access to the Gulf by boat is an
unfounded assumption. Most of them
are here because of the beaches. I
receive many queries and comments
from both boaters and non-boaters
concerning the canal and its expense.
The number of non-boaters complain-
ing about the expense far exceeds
those of boaters perhaps indicating
approval by boaters of the large sums
spent on the canal.
The whole economy of Mexico
Beach does not depend on the canal. A
small percentage of citizens are
merchants or landlords who derive
income. from ,tourism. The vast
'majority do not own boats but their
taxes support 'thie budget. I have
worked many hours on canal projects
and receive a few complaints as
though I worked against the canal.
The record shows that I have
supported canal projects except when
a disproportionate share of the budget
is to be spent on it when the funds
were not budgeted.
The reference to availability of
State and Federal grants is antiqua-
ted information. Several years ago
there were grants available for canal
improvement but our village did not
get any of these monies. Funds from
State and Federal governments are
very limited now. Grant writing is a
very technical activity. The job
description for our City Administrator
does not include this requirement. As
a result, we pay professionals to do
this for us. During my ten months in

THIS ARTICLE IS DEDICATED to all the people who are chronic
"worriers." There are many of you that are, at this very moment,
worrying about something. To me or others it may seem small and
insignificant, but to you, at this moment, it is monumental. Right?
Let me assure you that you are not alone. I am- one of the world's
champion worriers. As a matter of fact, I know all there is to know about
All worries center around money and love. Some people worry about
bills they owe and cannot pay or something they want and can't afford. It
takes lots of money just to stay even these days.
Others concern themselves and worry about love. They are either in
love with someone who loves them but doesn't want to marry because
they don't feel they are old enough at fourteen, or they love someone who
could care less about them. The "one-sided" love is the worst because
those who love someone who doesn't love them tend to only love them
more and the other party only cares less and less about them.
That world of love is a jungle sometimes.
MY LIFE OF WORRYING started at a relatively early age. I was
about eleven, I think, when I first wanted to play the trumpet. In those
days we had to furnish our own and my folks couldn't afford one so that
I worried about that for months before I decided I wanted to play the
drums. My folks couldn't afford a drum either so I had to settle for
playing football. It was something I could play where the school furnished
everything, except the jock strap. I swiped one of those from the locker
room but it was too big and I caught the worst case of itch I've ever had. It
lasted eight years and four months.
A short time later I began to worry about acne, the plague of the
teenager. It seemed the more I worried about pimples, more appeared on
my face. I washed them, soaked them in steaming hot towels, squeezed
them and put any concoction I could find on them and, even as I sit at this
typewriter, I have them on my face.
Worrying sure helped that problem, didn't it?
AS THINGS WOULD HAVE it, I fell in love during the "Pimple
Period" of my life.. .about sixteen times. The first girl I worked up the
courage to speak to and ask for a date told me to go blow my nose in a
creek. That was a lucky break for both of us because if she had gone out
with me I had planned to ask her to marry me. If she had been foolish
enough to go out with me, she might have accepted.
My love life wasn't too sporty in those days and I spent many restless
nights worrying about it and listening to my pimples grow.
COLLEGE ADDED YET another dimension to my worrying. In
addition to worrying about money, of which I had none, I began to worry
about my social status. I didn't stand too tall in that area, either. It began
to worry me that everyone looked down their noses at me even though I
was taller than most of them.
Girls wouldn't let me pick them up at the dormitory like the rest of
the guys did. They always asked me to park out back, blow the horn and
wait until they came out. You would be surprised at the number of girls
that were hard of hearing while I was in school.
It was tough, getting through college!
ABOUT FIVE YEARS after I graduated I began to worry about
getting married. A few years after I was married I worried about why I
did. "Gee," I thought, "if it ain't six of one, it's a half dozen of the other."
Since then I have worried about everything imaginable. I have
worriedabout my children, bills, wife's bills, the dog and cat, the hungry
people in Chihd Momnim used to talk about, the heathens intheJUnited .

chers Spahn and Burdette. And, as
you know, every umpire in the league
had it in for the Cards in '57.
They won it all in 1964. After
eighteen years the St. Louis Card-
inals were world champs. It was
worth the wait. What a special feeling.
I still think often of Bill White and Ken
Boyer, of Javier, Groat and Shannon,
Curt Flood and Tim McCarver. And
how Lou Brock could fly. And Bob
Gibson could he throw or what? In
the seventh game of the World Series
against the Yankees, Gibson had a big
lead in the ninth but had run out of
gas. He had pitched so many crucial
games with only three days rest for
almost a month. He should have been
half dead. The Yanks are hitting him
pretty good. Johnny Keane, the
Cards' manager goes out to the
mound, talks some, leaves Gibby in,
Bob wobbles a little, finally gets the
last out the Cards are world
champs. Reporters asked Keane why
he left a worn out Gibson in in the
ninth. Keane knew there was no quit
in Gibson. Gibson never wanted out of
a game. Gibson had gotten them into
the Series. Gibson had earned the
right to finish. And in answering the
reporters Keane paid Bob Gibson the
'`tghest compliment I've ever heard
paid a professional athlete. Keane
said, "I had a commitment to his
They won it all in 1967. Lost to
Detroit in seven games in '68. Of
course that year Flood lost a ball in
the sun and the Tigers were, oh, so'
lucky. We won again in '82 and I still
say we won in '85. You saw the bad
call at first. We was cheated. I'm glad
I've matured so, and realize it's just a
game. If not I'd a'gone after the um-
pire after that series. I'm older and
wiser and I view it now with an unpre-
judiced, analytical eye. And I still say
the umpire blew the call and cost St.
Louis the championship that year.
I have viewed the series this week
with no more than a passing interest.
Hey, I'm too mature to get down in the
floor in front of my T.V. and yell at lit-
tle men on a screen. This is it anyway,
tonight's the last game. You see what
that Leonard guy has been saying
about the Cardinals. The bum. He
wouldn't say those things if Bob Gib-
son was still pitching 'cause Gibby
would stick it in his ear every time he
came to bat. And that Will Clark guy,
geez you'd think he's Jack Armstrong
from all the media hype. And the
shortstop's name is Jose Uribe. I
haven't liked the Giants since they left
New York. The bums.
Well, I might watch the game
tonight after all can't hurt. I'll get
the kids out of the room, take the
phone off the hook and post my wife
by the front door to stop anyone rude
enough to come to the house. I tell you
the Giahts are bums. We can't lose to
those guys. Come on St. Louis.

Each student learns the importance of
a personal relationship with Jesus
Christ. They .are given instructions
regarding daily devotional studies,
and are given the opportunity o hear '
many challenging messages. Educa-.
tionally, the students have an oppor-
tunity to learn things that would be
difficult to teach in the classroom.
Nature studies, outdoor skills and
many other classes are taught. The
students also had the opportunity to
enjoy the Land Trolley, the 313 foot
super slide, canoeing, big ball volley-
ball and recreational activities.

CWO Kleeb Still Active with USAF
Retired Army Mwit Serves As Volunteer at Tyndall Air Force Base
Chief Warrant Officer Fred
Kleeb, U.S. Army retired, Tyndall
Volunteer Retiree of the Year in 1984,
deserved his accolade. Two years
before, upon receiving his first
newsletter from the Retiree Affiairs
Office, Kleeb responded immediately
to the request for volunteers. "Colonol
Dansereau was the director then," he
explained. "It didn't matter that I was
Army and not Air Force. I was made
to feel welcome and useful. I've been
coming here every Wednesday for the
past five years. You've heard the
expression about once a Scout always
a Scout. It's the same with the
403 Monument Ave.

military. I find it difficult to get the
service out of my system. In fact, it's
impossible. I'm treated well here and
I like to help others."
Kleeb entered the service in 1943
as an aviation cadet in the class of 44H
at Geneva College.
From there he was sent to
Wright-Patterson Field in Dayton,
Ohio. Upon being federalized in 1950,
Kleeb's battalion was transferred to
Germany. There he was assigned to
During his next tour, at Fort
Bliss, Texas, as a supply officer, he
once was called on the carpet. "Why
doesn't Company C have the new field
jackets?" the battalion commander
demanded. "Because they didn't
order them, sir." There was no
special magic, he explained. "Each
company commander had been at the
briefing, all were told to order what
they required. Every company that
did order received them."
After a 43-week electronic course,
Kleeb became a missile man for the
Nike Ajax, remaining in that field
through 1967. One subsequent assign-
ment took him to Pittsburgh, as
electronics warrant officer, where, in
1959, 18 Nike sites ringed the city.
While there, as a Mason, he showed
Nike films to lodges throughout
Pennsylvania, featuring Hercules
m,-ssiles hitting their target. "I talked
enthusiastically, and the interest was
parallel," he recollected.
Kleeb, who retired in 1967, was
born in Butler, Pa. "My dad was born
in Pennsylvania, although all my
aunts and uncles were from Germany.
My dad loved singing and directed a
choir for 25 years. Jayne, my wife,
also grew up in Butler. We lived in the
same town, and attended the same
church. We have two daughters, one
of whom used to teach exceptional
children in Panama City. We also
have three grandchildren."
The Kleebs, residents of St. Joe
Beach, first came here to enable Mrs.
Kleeb to recover from an illness. "A
brother-in-law had a trailer and we
were able to use. We liked it so much
we came here to stay, in 1976. We like
the climate, the beaches and the
people we meet, both in and out of the
In addition to volunteering weekly
at Tyndall, Kleeb is the Veteran's
Service Officer of the VFW, American
Legion and DAV, and is the song
leader of the AARP group in Port St.
Of his Tyndall stint, Kleeb says,
"I find this to be rewarding. First, the
service put me on an even keel. It's
run by regulations. They are not hard
to follow. Secondly, I like dealing with
servicement and their dependents.
Servicemen have a greater appreci-
ation of our flag. I like that."
A volunteer every Wednesday for
five years. That's worth repeating. It
confirms his dedication, reliability
and devotion to his fellow retirees.

Gulf County is considering plac-

Starting A Business Successfully
Workmen are busy replacing the roof on the Port St.
Joe Fire Station this week. The roof was apparently
weakened and damaged by Hurricane Kate which caused
rusting around the clamps which held it in place. Replacing
the roof was the only feasible alternative, according to
building inspector, Al Gay.

Thing As A Tr
by Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Agent
Many plants make attractive
additions to home decor. They bring
the freshness and beauty of nature to
the indoor environment. There's no
such thing as a true 'house plant.#
But, many species will grow quite well
indoors if we maintain the proper
conditions. It's basically just a matter
of keeping certain vital factors in
mind such things as temperature and

*) ever, if we're willing to meet their
special needs, it's not too difficult to
maintain plants within our homes.
Today, I'll offer_, some tips on
modifying the, indoor climate to
stimulate healthy plant growth. My
information for this article was
provided by ,HorticulturalJ Specialist
Dr. Robert Black.
For most plants to do well in,a
home, the temperature should W
between 70 to 75 degrees during the
day, and about 65 degrees at night.
However, these are only rough
guidelines. Plant preference and
tolerancesto temperature vary wide-
ly, So, for specific requirement of
particular plants, you'd be wise to
check with a nurseryman, garden
center operator, or your County
The most important temperature
factor in relation to your plants is
stability, try to locate them in an area
of the home where the temperature
will vary by no more than five degrees
this means that you should avoid
placing plants directly in front of
heating units, or conditioners, or even
on top of television sets. During winter
months, it's wise to move plants away
from windows and doorways, House
plants need moderately wario envir-
onment. Extended periods of expos-
ure to temperatures of 50 degrees or
lower can cause permanent damage
to many plants.
ne Temperature is just one environ-
mental factor affecting plants inside
your home. Another is the amount of
humidity or moisture in the air. Most
plants grow best when the humidity is
at least 30 percent. Since indoor air is.
usually rather dry you need to provide
enough water, proper lighting condi-
tions, and'a well regulated tempera-
ture to make up for the lack of
's No Such
ue "House Plant"
ROY LEE CARTER
The installation of a humidifier is
an excellent way to insure mainten-
ance of adequate air moisture levels
for good plant growth. However, if you
feel such a unit would be too costly, or
impractical for your home, there are
other steps you can take. For
example, humidity can be increased
around your house plants by setting
them on water filled trays or pebbles.
However, you must be careful to keep
the pots sitting on top of the pebbles.
Never allow them to become im-
mersed in the water. Grouping plants
also seems to help. Plants grown
separately usually dry out a lot faster
than plants grown close together. You
might also consider locating plants
with very high moisture requirements
in naturally humid areas of your
home, such as the kitchen and those
plants that can tolerate moisture on
their leaves will benefit from regular
syringing with a fine mist of water.
But remember that some plants can
be injured by such treatment.
While humidity is an important
source of the moisture plants need for
good health, they receive most of their
water requirement through direct
applications to the soil. And, unfortu-
nately, this is often a source of serious
trouble. Of all the factors in house
plant culture, proper watering is
probably most often misunderstood.
Most experts agree that careless
watering is the biggest killer of house
