Six Law Enforcement Agencies Pool
Resources In Crackdown on Crack
Like any serious fishermen,
agents of the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement, Gulf and Franklin
County Sheriff departments and the
Port St. Joe Police Department were
up early before daylight, Tuesday,
spreading their nets in the north Port
St. Joe area, to haul in 13 of 19
suspects in a crack cocaine dealing
Spring said to be operating in the
The round-up of suspected dealers
began before daylight Tuesday mor-
ning and continued through the day.
All but two of those apprehended were
in custody prior to 8:00 a.m., Tuesday.
Later in the day, two more were
apprehended and outstanding war-
rants are still to be served and arrests
made of'six more suspects as soon as
they can be located.
In a press conference at mid-
morning Tuesday, after the raid,
Sheriff Al Harrison said "We have
hauled in several leaves and branches
in the past, but I'm confident we have
a good part of the root system in this
raid'". Harrison said the delivery
system extends beyond Gulf County
and said other counties were taking
care of the operation on their home
Only one of those brought in
offered any resistance, according to
Stephon Sims, 300 Avenue C,
jumped in his car and attempted to
get away. Arresting officers, Mike
Brick of the FDLE and Sgt. James
McGee of the Port St. Joe police
department, both shot at Sims'
vehicle and shot out two tires in the
process. Brick shot six times and
McGee, three times.
Sims sped away from the arrest
scene in spite of having two shot out

Gulf County took the first step
toward performing the groundwork
needed before the emergency 911
system can be installed in the county.
The Board still has not approved
of installation of such an emergency
system, but the naming of streets and
numbering lots throughout the county
is a pre-requisite for introduction of

a motion that the county do whatever
was necessary to name all streets,

was stopped on Avenue C, where
agents found a quantity of crack
cocaine in the automobile. A knife was
also removed from the vehicle.
Arrested Tuesday morning in the
initial round-up were Bobby Briggs,
286 Avenue C; Sims; Calvin Johnson,
283 Avenue E; Tommy Garland, 256-A
Avenue C; David Lee Smith, 186
Avenue E; Kloskia Lowery, 191-A

David A. Williams and Larry Clark,
both of Apalachicola; Carolyn Gre-
gory, Avenue D, and Mary Thomas,
318 Avenue C. Later in the morning,
Napleon Hill, 309 Avenue A was
arrested and late Tuesday evening,
Carla Peterson of 210 Avenue C was
taken into custody.
All of those arrested were charg-
ed with selling crack cocaine and
were brought before Gulf County
Judge David Taunton Tuesday mor-
ning for first' appearance, where
$50,000 bonds were set for each
individual. Sims was also charged
with fleeing and attempting to elude
an officer and resisting arrest.
In addition to those taken into
custody, at least six more suspects

numbering system for structures
throughout the county.
Branch received unanimous ap-
proval for his motion, which would
provide information which has been a
priority of current emergency sys-
tems in the county such as ambu-
lance, fire and law enforcement
Branch's motion would take some
of the money ear-marked for planning
and secure someone to research street
locations and names and tentatively
give numbers to all structures.
Branch asked that administrative
assistant Larry Wells have the
responsibility for seeing that the work
gets done. "We don't want him to do
it-he has enough to do already-we
just want him to see that the actual
work gets started", Branch said.
Road Department Superintendent
Bob Lester told the Commission
Tuesday the state DOT bridge inspec-
tor had been in Gulf County in the last
few days and reported there are "five
or six" bridges in the county which
need to be 'closed until repairs are

already repaired some and are
working on others. "The worst ones

Johnese Exum, 210 Avenue C and
Ulysses Hutchinson, Apalachicola.
According to a joint statement
made by FDLE commissioner Mickey
Watson, Sheriff Al Harrison and
Sheriff Taylor, building the case
against those arrested has been a
project of some five months of
gathering evidence. "We had under-

in the drug arrest ro~und-up Tues-
day, was also involved in a shooting
in north Port St. Joe Saturday night.
According to police chief Robert
Maige, Sims and his girl friend were
having a fight, when Elmer and
Tommy Wells interceded in behalf
of the girl involved.
Later in the evening, Sims
pulled his car up behind the Wells'
vehicle and started shooting at the
car. The Wells' filed a complaint
against Sims and he was arrested

Port St. Joe's Corinne Costin Gibson Memorial Library has already
curtailed its Saturday operation and provides fewer services this year. It may
face even further reductions in services as time goes by. In the photo at right,
head librarian, Mrs. Jean Faliski, examines her budget possible savings.

Fund Shortage Causes Reduction In Hours of County Libraries
Gulf County's two libraries are cutting back on
operational hours to have enough money to make the year
and stay within their budget of $36,520.00 according to
Nolan Treglown, president of the Gulf County Library
"We don't haye any alternative but to cut back on the
number of hours we're open and offer less service if we are
to be able to.pay our bills all year long", Treglown said.
Here in Port St. Joe, head librarian, Mrs. Jean Faliski
told The Star over the week end that the Port St. Joe library
has cut out their open hours on Saturdays. "We are closed
all day every Saturday, now", Mrs. Faliski said. "Before
taking this step the first of the month, we were open from 9
to 2 on Saturday. We took a head count of library users over
a period of time and determined that Saturday was the
least utilized time we were open, even though we had some
very vital operations going on during the Saturday hours".,
Faliski said Saturdays were mostly used by college
students taking advantage of the open class operation of
area colleges, where students could come to the library,
using visual and audio aids, taking open college
courses rather than go to class. "We have made some
arrangements to pass the materials from one student to the
other on week ends and don't have a problem in that area at
this time", the librarian said.
Historically, the local library has been open six days a
week, with the Saturday hours shorter than week days.
The Wewahitchka operation, housed in the old
Courthouse, cut off a half day of operation on Tuesday. The
Wewahitchka facility is open beginning at 1 p.m., on
Other than these two changes, both county libraries are
following the same open hourly schedule they always have.
"We don't know what will happen in the future", Mrs.
Faliski said. "We feel the action this month is only the first
of several moves which are going to have to be made to
curtail operating expenses because of lack of funding", she
Faliski pointed out libraries all over the state are faced
with the same problem and are taking various steps to
serve the public and still be able to pay their bills.
ASK FOR SMALL INCREASE
Treglown pointed out that the Gulf- County library
system had asked for a 16 percent increase in funding this
year, which would have provided an additional $4,000 for
local funding of library operations, over last year. "We
wound up getting a five percent increase, which was the
largest we have had in a single year in quite a few
years, but it wasn't enough to maintain the current level of
library operations. It especially hurt since our librarians
haven't had an increase in wages in the past two years and
they are working at or just above minimum wages now".
Mrs. Faliski said the new budget figure allows the Gulf
county system to have an additional $211 for new children's
books. "You don't buy very many books of any kind for
$211", she said.
"I don't really feel our closing on Saturday will hurt all
that much", Mrs. Faliski said. The thing which seems to
bother her is what will need to be cut out next. On a $36,520
annual budget, a few pennies saved here and there makes a
big difference to the system.
Gulf County is contributing $28,031 to operation of the
library system in Gulf County this year. The remainder of
the $36,520 budget comes from other sources, such as state
funds, small service charges, etc.
"I'm worried about our service to the people in the
county", Faliski said. "We have over 8,000 registered
library card holders in Gulf County. With only 12,000 people
in the county, this is a good representation. We have over

Gulf's Public Library
Hardly Know It's There
Unless You Need It
We seldom pay much attention to something which is going
along smoothly--or so it seems-and there's nothing which stirs
up people quite so much as suddenly being without something we
once took for granted.
One of these kinds of things we take for granted here in Gulf
County is our regional library service. We have had it provided
for so long now, at such a small, cost to the scheme of things in
county service financing, we hardly even know it's there until we
go to use it.
But, even libraries don't operate on automatic. They need a
little impetus to keep things going, too, just like anything else. If
we had taken the time to stop and examine our library service
and seen just how little it takes to operate and provide such an
important service, we would have discovered the Golf County
branches of the Northwest Regional Library system operates for
just a little more than $2.00 per person in Gulf County money
each and every year. Or, it has in the past. Things are catching
up with the system, now, and there's a need to pay a little
attention to the libraries' needs for the future.
We have a library facility here in Port St. Joe which would be
the envy of many cities much larger than Port St. Joe. Of course,
we have that facility because of the generosity of Dr. Tom
Gibson, who put up a sizeable amount of cash to build the
building and put up a trust fund for a few years to get the system
off and running on its own.
Now, it's our turn to take full responsibility of the system and
if we can't do a credible job of keeping the service operating in a
manner which will benefit our people, we should be ashamed.
Possibly the new "Friends of the Library, being formed, will
take up much of the slack left by lack of governmental support
for the future. Really, if the Friends could and would undertake
such an operation, it would be better than government funding
the operation in the first place. Friends would be more generous
with their sense of need of the library service than government
servants have proven to be and would possibly make our library
a showplace of the state.
At any rate, let it be known we are a friend of the library and
support it. We're happy it is beginning to get the solicitous
attention of the general public ... even if it did nearly have to go
broke in order to get this attention.
Another old favorite of many in our town and our county
which is beginning, to draw re-newed interest\and support is the
Boy Scouts, and Scouting in general.
For about 30 years, there, it looked a if the Boy Scout
program would go on and on forever. It n eded no fixing and
fulfilled a need in our community. Then, suddenly, it fell on
rough times and we lost this valuable t or guiding our youth
into responsible adulthood.
Now, suddenly, a small corps of adults is eager to see
Scouting revived and they-are offering themselves as workers to
this end. That's what it takes..
The big Scouting week end next Friday night is a step in the
right direction to reviving public interest in the program. Even if
it failed to attract a single boy or girl, it got some adults going,
and that's the biggest part of the battle toward revival.

The news last weekisaid an iceberg twice the size of Rhode
Island had broken off Antarctica and is drifting in the Ross Sea.
The berg contains enough water to keep Los Angeles in drinking
water for the next 675 years.

Antarctica. A chip off the old block, so to speak.

don't think one little ole cruise is too

Thirteen years, shucks, I was

don't even know anyone who had ever

As Barney used to say, "You've got to
nip it in the bud, Andy." I jumped
right in about the cost of one of these
trips. Shucks, I bet a guy could blow
two or three hundred paying for all
this. We didn't have time to take any
trip even if it was "just" three
days. We didn't know where to go or
how to go about getting there.
Besides, we didn't have any
guarantee that we'd like this cruise -
I reminded her that we didn't know a
thing about one of these trips.

Subtle Signs of Summer Slipping Away Surround Us
WE HAVEN'T HAD much cool or
cold weather here in the Panhandle
thus far, this year. There is no doubt
but that it is the season for winter to
be coming in and announcing itself
just any day now.
Like every other season which
comes along, there are subtle remin-
ders that we must prepare because
the cold season is coming along.
Here at The Star, we begin to get
these subtle reminders along about
August or September, when nobody-I
mean, nobody-here in Northwest
Florida is thinking about winter. In
August and September, we are just
getting into the thick of things which
come with a hot, hot summer. The air
conditioners are still buzzing, shorts
are seen being worn on the streets
more than any other attire and the
beaches are still crawling with those
inland touristers striving for a cool dip
in the Gulf of Mexico.
But the end of summer and the
advent of winter has its little gentle
hints and reminders just as any other
season of the year.
I TOLD YOU about our trip to the
southern edge of Tennessee a few
weeks ago to watch the leaves on the
trees change color with the advent of
fall. There was a frost on the ground, a
definite nip in the air and the roaring
fireplace in "The Cracker Barrel"
restaurant in Pigeon Forge Saturday
morning at breakfast time felt just
right as it warmed my backside.
I was a little apprehensive that
the excitement of a leaf changing
colors might be more excitement than
my old heart could stand, but with the
cooler days to head off a hot-box, I
made it through the entire exper-
ience; even fighting traffic for four
They told me later that was one of
the signs of an impending winter.
When the touristers from flat Florida
begin to converge on Tennessee and
North Carolina to get a glimpse of a
leaf changing color, winter can't be
If you stayed at home from the
annual leaf color change in the
mountains, you were still treated to a
sure sign that winter wasn't far off.
The pine needles falling in abun-
dant abundance is a sure sign of
summer signing off for another year.
The best part of the trip, I
suppose, and the thing which makes
those mountain leaves so beautiful in
their changing each fall is the fact
that we here in Florida can drive up
there, look to our heart's content and
then drive home leaving the raking to
I STARTED OUT TO discuss one
of the more subtle reminders that
winter is on its way and I got
side-tracked by those mountain
If you have been watching televi-
sion for the past two or three weeks,
you have seen other and more
commercial signs that winter is on the
way. The commercial part is tucked
in between the scenes of the so-called
entertainment and is designed to
make our pending winter season more
easy to bear.
One of the guaranteed signs cold
weather is on the way is the
abundance of TV ads for cold
The commercial slots these days
are filled with Alka Seltzer Plus,
Dristan, Nyquil, Vicks Cold Formula,
Aspirin, etc. It's hard to get away
from an assurance one is going to
.need these remedies before very long.
In the days before TV, when life
was simpler, the abundance of cold
remedies were absent from the
shelves of the general store. If you
couldn't cure it with Syrup Pepsin,
Black Draught, Calomel, Doan's
Little Liver Pills or castor oil, you had
no other choice but to call the doctor to
come see you. See how off kilter things
were in those days?
We didn't have any of that
relatively good tasting stuff one takes
for a cold these days. A pill wouldn't
suffice in the time I'm talking about.
Momma's favorite remedy-for
us kids-when we had a cold was a
big, solid slug of castor oil, heated to
make it slide down easier.
There was nothing which would
make castor oil go down easy. If you
could get that stuff down without
gagging you could eat or drink
Momma put mine in orange juice
and made me drink it. As a result, I
was grown before I would drink just
plain orange juice. That castor oil cold
remedy was so powerful I could taste
it just drinking plain orange juice.
The only good thing about the old
days was you had no warning winter
was coming until it was here. That
way, you didn't have all that lead time
to dread the dose of castor oil when
the inevitable cold came along.
Many today long for the "Good old
days", but I would rather see a
Dristan ad on TV warning of the
pending cold season than to be
surprised one chilly morning with a
tablespoon full of castor oil stuck
under my nose, which was being held
firmly between two strong feminine
fingers and the admonition ringing in
my ears: "Open wide; this is good for

"YOU NEED TO know, and this is not a joke," the article stated,
"that it is possible within medical science in the next five years to have a
father carry a pregnancy."
The statement was made by a Tampa pediatrician, Dr. J. Michael
Cupoli, to the Senate Judiciary-Civil Committee who is struggling with
the difficult issue of surrogate parenting in Florida.
If what Dr. Cupoli said is true, within a decade we may well see
pregnant men walking the aisles of the supermarket. Dr. Cupoli
explained it this way:.
"SCIENTISTS HAVE announced that it is theoretically possible for a
fertilized donor egg to be surgically attached to the outside of intestines in
a man's abdomen, where the fetus could grow with the aid of artificially
administered hormones until delivery by caesarean section. Such
'ectopic' pregnancies are known to occur, both naturally and artificially,
It might be difficult to understand now, but in about ten, years we
might hear the following conversation between two men friends who
meet on the street.
"HI CHARLES. How ya' doin', podner?"
"Hello, Joe. I'm doing pretty good, I guess. How are you?"
"I'm d6in' fine. I haven't seen you since right after your first child
was born: You've gained a little weight aroung the ole middle, haven't
"Well, yes I have but not from what you think. I eat less now than I
ever have. You see, I'm. ..."
"Don't tell me you got a tumor!"
"No. Actually I'm pregnant. I thought you knew."
"No, I didn't. Congratulations. What happened to Mary?"
"Well, she wanted more children but she felt we should share the
load; one for her and one for me. So, here I am, just fat and sassy."
"Well, you sure look good. Where did you get the maternity shirt and
"I bought them at the "Darling Dad" shop in Panama. Do you like
"They're precious. I also love the matching wing-tips you have on.
Are they comfy, too?"
"Yes, they are. Listen, Joe, I hate to run but I have an appointment
with my doctor. It's getting close. The baby's due in January."
"Good 'to see you again, Charles. I'm going to put together a shower
for you if I can work it in before Christmas. By the way, who is your

don't take the cake!" I also wonder the same thing she did: What's this
world coming to?

more likely to be where they were
supposed to be at that time of the day
and before any of them could begin
taking the illegal substance them-
selves and possibly be harder to deal
with. "Many of these arrested were
selling to support their own use habit,
while some were just selling for the
enormous profits involved in the
business", Sheriff Harrison said.
"This is probably the largest
single apprehension of dealers in
crack cocaine ever made in Florida",
Sheriff Harrison said. "This investi-

2,000 patrons who are in and out of our libraries regularly",
she pointed out.
' Faliski said the largest age groups who use the library
are high school and college students, and middle age to
older adults. "We have a lot of retired people who use the
system regularly", Faliski said. Here in Port St. Joe, the
average day at the library sees an average of 80 people
coming in to check a book in or out or use some of the
facilities of the building. These services include a public
meeting room, facilities for private tutoring during the
day, copying machine, projectors, special equipment for
the sight and hearing impaired, as well as interesting
exhibits for the general public to inspect.
For instance, there is currently a very interesting
exhibit of a large group of older cameras, loaned by
Clarence Monette, which is on display._
WHAT'S THE ANSWER?
What is the answer to the library's dilemma? Money of
course as well as support. Treglown pointed out the
library has received very little increase in operational
funds over the past years and it's beginning to show. "If we
could have received that $4.000 increase in funds, we would

Treglown said the current fiscal problems may be a
blessing in disguise for the library. "A new Friends of the
Library organization is being formed, which will promote
interest in the service. Tom Gibson has been selected
president of the new group and they're going to be holding a
reception at Danny Raffi4ld's home Sunday afternoon,
where we hope to have a good showing of support for
quality library service in the county", Treglown said. "I'd
like to see us talking about expanding library hours as a
service to the county, rather than trying to figure out ways
to cut back. We're going to be discussing this very thing at
our meeting Tuesday (day before yesterday). We'll
consider patron usage in our final decision", he pointed out.
Currently, librarian Jean Faliski and her one assistant,
Mrs. Emily Simmons are conducting a survey of their
patrons to find out just which hours they would like to use
the library most. This survey will be used in the future to
streamline the service even more if it is needed in order to
meet the bottom line of the budget and still be in the black.

Port St. Joe's Sharks got back on
the winning track Friday night, with a
convincing 21-8 victory over the
The Sharks went largely with next
year's squad in the first half of the
game, but when the first half was over
and the Gladiators had an 8-7 lead, it
was time to get down to real business.
Things started off just right for
the Sharks. Taking the Gladiators
game-opening kick-off on his own 10
yard line, Collins Hamilton came
roaring up the middle to take the
shortest distance to the Gladiators
goal line, 90 yards away, and score the
Sharks' first TD of the evening.
Then, in the second quarter, the
Gladiators jumped on a Shark fumble
-the first of five for the night by the
Sharks-and were in business from
the Shark 28 yard line. In just three
plays, quarterback Craig Sutton hit
Chris Berry with a 20-yard scoring
strike. Berrly again had the ball in a
two-point conversion attempt and
beat the Shark defenders to the left
In the second half, the Sharks took
over definite control of the game and
scored twice on the Gladiators, who
put up a stout defense, but couldn't
move the ball against the Sharks.
On their first series of downs in
the third period, the Sharks started on
their own 11 yard line and in just nine
plays, the Sharks were on the
Gladiator 19 yard line on the hard
running of Ross Yowell and two
passes from Blaine Adams to Eric
Langston. Yowell scored on a 19 yard
run around the left side and Nicholas
Rolack bulled across with two extra
points, to give the Sharks a 15-8 lead.
Then, in the last period, quarter-
back Blaine Adams called his own
number and plunged over from one
yard out to score the Sharks final TD.
The kick for the extra point was wide.
The last scoring drive was ignited
when Collins Hamilton hauled in a
Gladiator pass at the Shark 39. Adams
rambled for 14 yards to the Havana 45
and Eric Langston hauled in a 10 yard
pass. Havana clipped and suddenly
. the Sharks were on the Gladiator 27.
Then, in the opening seconds of the
fourth quarter, Adams rammed the
ball across the goal line.
Defensively, David Williams pac-
ed the Sharks with 11 tackles and
Steve Howell had 10 and an intercep-
tion of a Havana pass. Jamie Vathis
had seven tackles, Ivey Henderson
6 and Terry Quinn, 5. Steve Gibson
also had six tackles and added two
quarterback sacks and a fumble
recovery. Leonard Ray sacked the
quarterback twice and Collins Hamil-
ton intercepted a pass and recovered
Ross Yowell carried the football
20 times during the game, gaining 96
yards. Hamilton had his 90 yard
touchdown run on the opening kick-

Wewa Ranked Seventh In State
Wewahitchka's Gators put enough
points on the scoreboard in the first
period to win their District game
against the Liberty County Bulldogs
The Band Boosters
Friday night, but it took two stellar
defensive plays in the second half to
preserve their slim one point lead.
As a result of the win, which keeps
their record perfect in District play,
the Gators climbed two notches in the
state 1-A standings. The Gators
gained the number nine slot in the
standings. three weeks ago, but
vaulted to the number seven position
with Friday's victory.
Todd McGlon put the Gators
ahead in the game early in the first
period, with a two-yard plunge on the
Gators' first possession. David Paul
kicked the extra point, which turned
out to be the margin for the Gators.
Gator fans heaved a sigh of relief
when their team scored so early in the
game, but it was to be the only score
for the Gators and turned on a cat and
dog fight to maintain their slim lead.
The Bulldogs answered the Gator
TD in the second period, but the Gator
defense threw up a block against the
punter which deflected the ball on the
try for extra point.
The Bulldogs could smell that
small margin that stood between
them and the Gators and pulled out
all the stops, threatening to score
twice in the second half.
Knocking on the Gators' door,
Dennis Diggs took a fourth and goal
dive to the goal line during the third
period, only to be turned back by Brad
Attaway, who ended the game leading
the Wewahitchka team with 10
tackles. Attaway stopped Diggs at the
one yard line.
Again the Bulldogs threatened to
cross the goal line with the winning
points late in the last period. A Gator
snap to punter David Paul, sailed over
Paul's head and the Dogs recovered it
at the Wewahitchka 30 yard line.
On the first play the Bulldogs
decided to go for broke and Durand
McLeod broke up the threat by
intercepting the 'Dog pass in the end
zone to save the Gator's one point

Carol Durham taught them what was

item was used for. The girls had a
slumber party at St. James Episcopal
Church where Carol Durham helped
them on their Music Try-It in the

World of People; World of Today &
Tomorrow; World of Arts; and World
of the Out of Doors. Each world of
interest has try-it patches the girls
can earn to go on their sashes. When
not going on outings, the girls work on
these at the meetings or at home.
There are three more outings
planned before they get out for the
holidays. On Nov. 13, they are going to

many items sure to make some
children happy this Christmhs. Last
year the Jaycees' were unable to
repair toys, this year we have more
members than ever and have set up a
committee to repair and refurbish the
toys. I have contacted several of the
area churches and all have expressed
a desire to help us with this project.
There will be dates set for the
churches to collect toys within their
congregations. Last year all the
children names were given to us by
HRS. This year, in addition to HRS
names, we will begin a referral
system accepting names from area
churches and the general public. The
names will be presented to a

requests on an individual basis. The

A Major Investment In Your Yard
Buy Quality Plants
by Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Agent
A beautiful home landscape can
represent a major investment, a
sizeable portion of which is often
accounted for by trees and shrubs. So
it's important to plan carefully, buy
only from reputable nurseries and
take care of your new plants properly"
as soon as you get them home.
Most of us add trees and shrubs to
our home grounds now and then. As
we contemplate such a project, we
face a common question: When is the
best time to plant? Generally speak-
ing, the answer is during late fall and
winter months. If you're thinking
about setting some new trees and
shrubs in your landscape, now
through February is the best time to
A couple of obvious exceptions to
the fall planting rule are evergreens
and palms. It's best to plant ever-
greens in August or early September.
Palms should be planted during the
summer rainy season.
Planting times also can vary
according to the way the plants are
packaged. Plants usually are pre-
pared for sale in one of four ways.
They may be "Bare Root", which
means the roots are bare of all soil.
They may be in a "package bare
root" form, with the bare roots
wrapped in sawdust, bark, or peat
moss. Plants may be sold "balled and
burlapped", with the root soil ball
wrapped in burlap. Many plants are
sold as container ground specimens.
In which case the root system isn't
disturbed at all until planting time.
For the most part "bare root"
packaged "bare root", and balled and
burlapped plants will have a higher
survival rate if they're planted in the
late fall or winter. "Container grown"
plants can be added to the landscape
any time. You'll usually pay a lot
more for plants sold in containers.
The next thing we need to talk
about is preparing the planting site.
You should get the selected site ready
well in advance of buying a plant, so
that you'll be able to get it in the
ground as soon as you take it home.
This is very important. If you wait
even a few days between purchase
and planting, a plant that was healthy
when you bought it may be in poor
shape when the time you set it in your
landscape. If you give a little extra
time and effort to site preparation,
you get your new plant off to a much
Obviously, the first step is digging
the hole. Be sure you dig it large
enough. The hole should be at least six
IKE DUREN I Broker
ROY LEE CARTER
inches deeper and wider on all sides
than the root mass of the plant. Keep
the sides going straight down rather
than sloped. Loosen the soil in the
bottom to allow for root development.
Your next step will be to add some
soil amendments to the earth you've
removed from the hole. Soil amend-
ments are things like compost, pine
bark, and peat moss. They help hold
water and nutrients better in Flor-
ida's sandy soils.
Mix one part soil amendment with
every two parts of the soil you plan to
use in setting your plant. Then, place
about six inches of the amended soil
back in the hole. Pack the added soil
down fairly well so that the plant
doesn't settle after it's set.
Next, stand upright in the center
of the hole and turn it so that its best
side is most visible. Make sure there's
plenty of room for the roots. When

working with a bare root plant, make
a cone shaped mound of soil in the
bottom of the hole and arrange the
roots around it. They should be spread
naturally, not cramped or twisted.
For a balled and burlapped or
container grown plant, handle the soil
ball gently, being careful not to break
Make sure you place the plant at
the right level in the soil. Planting too
shallow can cause the roots to dry out.
But, planting too deep can suffocate
roots and cause the base of the trunk
to rot. On bare root plants, you can
usually tell what the right level is
because there's a color change where
the base of the trunk meets the soil
line. With balled and burlapped or
container grown plants, line up the top
of the soil ball with the soil surface.
Don't try to remove the burlap on
a balled and burlapped plant. Simply
roll the material down away from the
soil ball and it will decay naturally.
Container grown plants usually are
sold in metal cans which must be
carefully cut away and discarded
After your plant is set, you're
ready to fill up the rest of the hole with
amended soil. Fill the hole 3/4 full,
keeping the plant in an upright
position, water thoroughly. After the
water settles fill the rest of the hole
with more amended soil and water
again. Finally, make a rim of soil a
few inches high and two or three feet
away from the plant's trunk. This
saucer shaped basin will help hold
water and direct it to the roots of the

Season Opens This
Saturday, Nov. 14
Eager hunters who have been
chomping at the bit while waiting for
the start of hunting season soon will
have their patience rewarded. Gene-
ral gun season opens statewide Nov.
Although there are few changes in
hunting regulations from last year,
hunters will find some laws receiving
special emphasis this year.
Among the rules that will see
increased attention from wildlife
officers is the so-called "road-hunt-
ing" rule. This rule makes it illegal to
take or attempt to take wildlife from
the right-of-way of any government-
"The Commission adopted this
rule several years ago and hunters
have had more than adequate time to
become acquainted with it," said Col.
Brantley Goodson, law enforcement
director for the Game and Fresh
Water Fish Commission. "This year
the rule was amended to prohibit
hunting from the right-of-way by any
method, including the use of dogs, and
we plan to enforce it."
Goodson said it is illegal to "cast"
dogs on road rights-of-way in order to
chase game across private property.
"Hunters must respect the rights
of property owners and seek their
permission before hunting on private
land," he said. "The Commission
adopted the road-hunting rule in the
best interest of hunters and it is meant
to reduce conflicts with landowners
and to protect the public against
shooting over' rural roads."
Wildlife officers also plan to get
tough on litterbugs this hunting
"Good sportsmen clean up their'
hunt camps and hunting areas before
leaving," Goodson said. "Anyone
caught leaving trash behind will
receive a citation."
If you plan to hunt on one of
Florida's 61 wildlife management
areas, Goodson recommends review-
ing the hunt map before hunting on a
"Regulations and season dates
vary from year to year and even from
area to area," he said. ,
Speaking of regulations, the
responsibility of enforcing Florida's
wildlife laws falls on the shoulders of
326 wildlife officers and supervisory
"We could use a hundred more,"
Goodson said. "We'd like to have at
least one officer on patrol in each
county at any given time."
With a limited number of officers
on duty, response time occasionally
can be slow for the citizen who calls
for assistance. In many cases, the
dispatchers have to screen calls and
assign certain calls a lower priority.
"We can't always respond to all
calls as quickly as we'd like,"
Goodson said, "but we do so as soon as
possible. Naturally, a call alerting us
to illegal deer hunting will have
priority over a call about a raccoon in
someone's trash can or a non-poison-
ous snake in someone's yard."
Goodson had one more bit of
advice for hunters: Let someone at
home know exactly where you will be
and when you plan to return.
"This makes it easier for us to
search for a hunting party if it is
overdue or if some other emergency
arises," he said.
Game Commission Making A
Study of Alligator Rules
The Florida Game and Fresh
Water Fish Commission will consider
revising several rules pertaining to
alligators when it meets in Tallahas-
see tomorrow, November 13.
One rule change would require
nuisance alligator trappers to pur-
chase a $250 annual license and $30
hide validation tags. The rule also
would allow trappers to sell the hides
of nuisance alligators and keep all the
proceeds. Currently the Commission
sells the hides and the trappers
receive 30 percent of the proceeds.
Another rule change would allow
alligator farmers to make commer-
cial use of juvenile alligators which
die of natural -causes.
A third rule change would allow
unanimous vote, the Board approved
the Building Official's budget in the
amount requested ($122,000). Bir-
mingham moved the Board take the
same action on the Building Official's
salary as other employees. Peters
seconded the motion and it passed
The Board considered the Civil
Defense budget request ih the amount
of $46,011. Peters moved, other than
salary, to increase the Civil Defense
budget five percent. Traylor seconded
the motion. Birmingham left the
meeting at this point. The ,motion
passed with Peters, Traylor, Money,
and the Chairman voting yes.
The Board considered the County
Planning Budget. Birmingham moved
the Board reduce county planning for
the Comprehensive Plan from $40,000
to $15,000. Peters seconded the
motion. Peters stated maybe it should
be increased to $25,000 based on
discussion. Upon vote, the motion
passed unanimously. Birmingham
stated his biggest objection at leaving
it at $40,000 is all other budgets were
'increased five percent by the Board,
without regard to need, salaries have
to be increased, and the millage rate
should be lowered.
The Board considered the budget
request of the Administrative Assist-
ant in the amount of $4,985. Upon
motion by Money, second by Peters,
and unanimous vote, the Board
approved a five percent increase in
the Administrative Assistant's bud-
get, less salary increases.
The Board considered the budget
request of the Property Appraiser in
the amount of $142,665. Birmingham
moved the Board grant a five percent
increase in the Property Appraiser's
budget over the previous year,
excluding salaries. Money seconded
the motion and it passed unanimously.
