Just Say No
Special Week, March Get
Approval of Local Folks
There are a lot of people who will be saying "NO" to drugs all next
week, as the Port St. Joe area organizations are adopting a resolution
declaring themselves against the practice which is having such a heavy
toll on young lives all across the nation.
For the second year in a row, an organization headed up by a group of
parents is organizing both the week of protest against the use of
controlled substances as well as a community march against the menace
Thursday of next week, at noon.
"Just Say No" week will begin Sunday and continue through the end
of the month, according to Mrs. Charlotte Pierce, publicity person for the
movement in the Port St. Joe area.
Thus far, Mrs. Pierce says she has official resolutions from the Gulf
County Commission, the Gulf County School Board and the Port St. Joe
City Commission, endorsing and pledging their support in the fight
against illegal drugs. Mrs. Pierce said the Jaycees have also endorsed
the anti-drug program earlier. "Kiwanis endorsed it Tuesday, the Lions
have said they will vote approval of the resolution Wednesday and the
Rotary Club will vote their support today. Our civic clubs are united in
support of trying to eradicate this blight",Mrs. Pierce said.
The resolution being adopted throughout the county, calls on society
"to stand against this dreaded epidemic ... in an effort to save our young
people and ... pledges their support in trying to eradicate the sourge and
blight on our society ."
SPECIAL PROTEST MARCH
In addition to the support expressed in the resolution, organizations
are also rallying to the call to participate in and support a huge march of
youth and their elders in a march to give moral support to those who
"Just Say No".
The march will be held in downtown Port St. Joe beginning at 12:15
beginning on Fifth Street across from the St. Joseph Telephone Company
building. The parade route will march west on Fifth Street to Reid
Avenue, where it will turn north and march the length of the street.
Pierce said all schools in the county are participating in the events of
the week and will be heavily involved in the Thursdaymarch,
Signs such as this one inside the city will pack more

clean up and beautify. Evidently, persons in the past

Commissioner Emily Roche, the
Commission liaison with the commit-
tee, asked for copies of the laws

city and for authorization to purchase
small amounts of shrubbery where
the committee thought it was needed.
Roche also asked, the Commission to

warned the Commission, in effect,
"We have never done it this way
before" in their agreements for the
several items under consideration.
"If we start this thing-as we
should-we're going to have to apply
it to everyone. We can't let this
situation exist while we insist on a
clean-up in another place", he said.
The Commission agreed with'

threat of a $500 fine didn't deter in the past. The
Commission thinks the application of the fine may deter
in the future.
Roche also asked the Commission
for permission for the committee to
add more members if they felt they
needed more expertise in their task.
Their task is to identify and make
suggestions where possible, of places
which need cleaning up or beautifying
inside the city.
The committee was appointed last
month by Mayor Frahk Pate to take
on the task, which has been a concern
of the Commission and several civic
groups and many citizens for several

In keeping with the current move
to clean up the appearance of the city,
Mayor Pate said he had received two
complaints of dilapidated and dam-
ated empty houses on Avenue G and
Avenue A. The Commission agreed
the owners of the property should be
located and ask them to clean up the
situation before the City flexes any
muscle in the matter.
Pate also directed the public
works department to remove the dead
shrubbery from the Fifth Street
median. "I thought it might sprout

ping Tuesday by Port St. Joe police
after a complaint was filed against
him by the alleged victim.
Police Chief Carl Richter said
Hamilton was arraigned on- the
charges before Judge David Taunton
Wednesday morning, where his bond
was set at $50,000. Hamilton was still
lodged in the Gulf County'Jail at noon
Chief Richter said Hamilton is
already awaiting sentencing on a
charge of snatching a billfold from
I.W. Duren, containing money and
checks, about a month ago.
Chief Richter said the complaint
filed against Hamilton had the victim
stating he had forced his way into
her home during the early morning
hours Tuesday and forced the lady to
go with him to a secluded area where
he attempted sexual battery and held
the victim against her will for
approximately two hours.
Richter said no weapon was used
in committing the crime. "He just
threatened her and used physical
force", the Police Chief said.
Richter said the victim knew
Hamilton and was able to identify him
readily as the person who forced her
from her home.
Mexico Beach Hits the Jackpot In Grants to Improve Boat Canal
Mexico Beach has $160,000 now

purpose of improving the boat docking
area in its boating canal. Approval by Recreation Development Assistance

necessary money for turning the

A attractive installation for boaters,
oI \ according to information revealed by
Mayor Bob Jones and City Council-
man Al Cathey.
Cathey told The Star the funding
would allow the City of Mexico Beach
to install nearly 600 feet of boat docks,
nature walks, restrooms and access
walks to the canal along 43rd Street.
"The new installation will also
remove a constant problem we have
with sand sloughing off into the canal
from its west shore", Cathey said,
indicating the installation will benefit
the City of Mexico Beach and its
residents in more ways than one.
Mayor Bob Jones said the project
would replace some 70 feet of old and
damaged sea walls, as well as provide
new and additional boating aids along
the west bank of the canal, south from
Highway 98. Mayor Jones stressed the
work would not include dredging at
the entrance of the canal to the Gulf of
"The Corps of Engineers has told
us what we're doing now to keep the
canal entrance open and navigable is
about the best we can do", Cathey
said. "We'll continue with that
operation just.as we have in the past
to maintain use of the waterway", he
City Administrator John Mclnnis
said the City of Mexico Beach said the
city already has the permits in hand to
do the work they had planned with the
grant money. "We had to have the
permits before we could even apply
for the grant", McInnis said. "Just as
soon as we're told the money is in the
bank, we can get this project
underway and possibly be under
construction by late spring", Mclnnis
Cathey said the project would
provide for the 600 feet of docking,
fenders and boat ties along the canal,
as well as a wharf along the boat
docks to allow boarding and off-
loading of boats conveniently.
The installation' will also have a
nature trail constructed along the
west bank of the canal and three
points to get from 43rd Street down to
the dock level.
"It'll be a great asset to our
vacation community and something
everyone in the vicinity can use",
The work will also include some
re-shaping of the jetties at the mouth
of the canal, as well as construction of
a sand fence to catch blowing sand
before it can become a dredging job
near the mouth of the waterway.
Funding for the installation
comes from the state source, as well
as $40,000 from Bay County's share of
the boating improvement funds. This
money is shared with each county in
the state, as a portion cf the funds
received from boat registrations and
fees in the state of Florida.

A Full Diet from Now to November Hunker Downwih Kes
H unker Down. with Kes
by Kesley Colbert
The first shoe has been dropped in the 1988 election season,
with the announcement by the candidate for Sheriff in Gulf
County last week.
That means, from now to November we will have our
senses whetted daily by matters pertaining to some election or
Of course, first we have the Port St. Joe Municipal Election
on May 10, but that one will be over with almost before it gets
here. We don't spend much time on Port St..Joe politics, even
though we should.
But the party primaries, and general elections of county,
state and national levels will be with us for a while this year.
Even though it is only three weeks into the month of April
and several counties already have several candidates who have
declared their intentions: even though we have been working on
electing a president of the United States since this time last
year: even with all this election activity going on around us, we
don't expect candidates to start surfacing in Gulf County until
about the middle of June.
Actually, many of them don't even make their intentions to
seek office known until the qualification period opens in the first
week in July. Time enough to campaign after the qualification
date officially opens.
Whenever candidates declare themselves, and whenever
the serious campaigning begins, we hope our county will
respond well this year and do their duty each and every time the
polls are open for receiving votes.
With the news published the other day about a national
budget of $1.1 TRILLION being introduced to Congress this
year, it's time we all get interested in the ones being elected, or
we might reach the point where it takes us two years to raise
one year's budget.
Budgets were unbelievable enough when one read them in
the billions, then hundreds of billions. It was more money than
the average person could begin to imagine. Now that we are
flirting with more than one trillion dollars as a usual thing, we
really need to be aware of what's going on around us in the
It's A Bad Bill
Nobody wants to start at the bottom anymore, even if it
means he is going to learn a viable trade while filling the bottom
slot of trade for a while. Nobody wants to pay a person top
wages for just being a willing, warm body, either. So, there one
has the primary argument pro and con for an advance in the
minimum wage, which is currently being bandied about
Actually, one would think the Congressmen who favor the
minimum wage increase would be enough to kill the bill, but
such hasn't been the case.
Here at The Star, over the years, we have had our share of
'youths co i inti-the business, wantingtfd earn a little money to
supply themselves with a set of wheels or a little spending
money. There have been others who were interested in the
business and wanted to at least learn enough about it to know
how to talk intelligently with a future employer.
The prior category wasn't really worth the minimum wage.
He didn't earn his wages. This type person really never did
anything but cost us money to keep him on the payroll. Although
he was usually kept busy (because he was still commanding a
nice little piece of change for menial work) he never did quite
produce as much as he was costing.
The second category earned his minimum wage in just a
short while after being employed and in the course of time, he
was worth more than the minimum wage. We have had that
But to tell us that in a short while this other type fellow is
going to command up to $5.05 per hour out of our limited
resources is to tell us we aren't going to hire this marginal
We'll have to make other arrangements to sweep.the floor,
carry out the trash, wash down the presses, make deliveries,
Or, we'll have to do it ourselves.
It's a bad bill.
I think when my Mother was a lit-
tle girl she must'a thrown away an old
doll or blanket or hat or something
and almost immediately wished she
had the discarded article back. And I
figure she was some more disap-
pointed when she realized it was gone
forever. So disappointed in fact that
she crossed her eyes, threw a frog
over her left shoulder and vowed to
never, ever throw anything else away
again. Now, I'm positive that she
made herself this promise at a very
young age 'cause she's got this saving
stuff game down to an art ... you
don't just start eight or ten years ago
and stick it back like Mom does. No
sir, it takes years and years of work
and practice to reach the "saving
ability level" that my Mother has at-
The third morning I was home I
decided it was now or never so I head-
ed for the attic. My brothers had
found some old baseball cards up
there. A whole shoebox full of them.
What a find! I bet you I'd bought a
blue zillion baseball cards in my day,
at a nickle a pack. And folks, that's a
lot of bubble gum. I wasn't thrilled
about attacking that attic but the
thought of finding a 1952 Ted Williams
or an old Mays or Mantle or Slaughter
.... and I'd do near about anything to
get my hands on a 1953 Musial. I knew
- I'm A Lot Like Her
the boys hadn't found them all -
they'd only had ten or fifteen years to
look. No way they could search
through everything in that attic in
that length of time!
I knew Mother was just funning
me when, as I reached the stairs, she
said, "It's not that bad up there son."
I pushed a few boxes of old scrap
material out of the way, worked
around a baby bed, -stepped over a
commode seat, set an electric fan on a
broken rocking chair I thought my
Dad threw away in 1954 and found my
progress impeded by a wall of Look,
Life and Saturday Evening Post
magazines. Son of a gun, that Norman
Rockwell fellow was doing covers for
Post back in 1948. I leafed through the
forty year old magazine. Everybody,
men and women, wore hats. They
dressed just like those people in those
old, but now in color, movies Ted
shows us on The Superstation. They
had a nice lay out on Harry Truman at
home in Independence and the back
inside cover showed a bus boy yelling
for everyone to smoke Phillip Morris.
I high jumped over the magazines
and landed on a cardboard box that
held among other things every report
card handed out to a Colbert boy. I
opened my seventh grade card and
checked the first six weeks. Four F's
and a D. I remember that year. Those
teachers didn't know how to relate.
My Dad glanced at those grades and
said, "I see your problem son -
you're concentrating too much on one
Well shucks, at least my grades
were better than Leon's.
I found an old deflated football. I
remember the day Dad bought it at
Hall's Western Auto. We passed,
punted and kicked that ball for years.
It still had air in it the day I left for
college. It looked so much smaller
than I remembered.
I ran across a letter from LaRen-
da Bradfield. Now why would she
write she lived just over in the next
holler. And in the same box was an
autographed picture of Frog
Millhouse. Boy howdy, do I remember
the day he came to town. I sat in his
lap and asked him about Gene Autry
and Champion. And I discovered an
old picture of me and Tommy taken at
the swimming pool. We were in-
separable in those days until the
whole family up and moved away. I
wonder if ole Thomas ever thinks of
Mother had a rack of dresses that
looked like they came right out of that
'48 Post magazine. I reckon she
figures they'll one day be back in
style. And I couldn't believe the
orange hat with the little black
hairnet thing that came down in front.
Surely she never wore it.
I found several glass milk bottles,
a newspaper clipping where my little
league team won the championship,
some pictures of Dad in the South
Pacific during World War II, a bird
cage, a 1947 program from the Grand
Ole Opry and a hundred other things
that you wouldn't believe. And finally,
along about dark, I uncovered the one
and only baseball card left in that at-
I made it back home and I'd still
like to see some old baseball cards.
Tell you what let's do-you show me
your collection and I'll show you my

THINGS ARE CHANGING in
Gulf County. It may not be noticeable
to the average person, but a slow,
definite change is taking place, just as
drastic as a change which started
some 15 years ago.
It was about 15 years ago when
the face of the county started taking
on a new look. Prices for small grains
in the world at that time, directed
large combines to Gulf County to clear
the swamp lands and turn it into fields
of production of small grains and
It was during these days that MK
Ranches started clearing all of Willis
Swamp and a huge portion of Howard
Creek and Indian Bayou swamp to
development. The MK people drained,
they cut, they stumped, they built
dams and roads and planted grasses
of the Lan(
in hopes of developing into a large
Right behind MK Ranches came
the T.L. James Company out of
Rustin, Louisiana. The James com-
pany moved into the Wetappo Creek
watershed area and started doing the
same thing MK was doing in the
Howard Creek area.
WHAT HAD BEEN impenetrable
swamps ever since there has been a
Gulf County was slowly, but surely
turned into open fields, used for
pasture land and the growing of
Soybeans had a foothold, along
with cattle for a few years, but never
did get above the break even stage.
Then, when the price of soybeans fell
on world markets, the newly-cleared
fields produced not much more than
broom sedge and sawgrass.
The cattle operations hung on
until early in this decade, when the
d Is Doing
State of Florida started making
trouble for MK for trying to erect huge
dikes to keep the Brothers River off
their pasture lands when it flooded,
usually every spring.
Things degenerated in the MK
operation until the owners finally told
the state to either buy their property
or let them use it.
Along about this time, MK started
experimenting with rice crops to
utilize their vast fields which still had
a plentiful supply of water available
despite attempts to drain and clear.
The rice crops did well until the
price of rice took a dip and put that
operation into jeopardy.
Over on the T.L. James property,
cattle fattening operations replaced
cattle ranching and the operation
attempted to shift its emphasis to
bringing cattle here during the winter
months to feed them on the pastures
rather than having to haul in feed for
the cows in other places.
4 Full Circle Here in Gulj
Then, the price of beef took a
tumble and the feedlot operation
wasn't all that profitable anymore.
IN THE MEANTIME FICO
Farms have moved into a portion of
what was once T.L. James land and
tried their hand at grain growing, only
to have it lose money, too.
FICO is one of two large farming
operations remaining in Gulf County.
FICO, who has considerable exper-
ience in commercially growing pe-
cans in other states is making an
attempt to introduce the nuts com-
mercially on their Wetappo Creek
holdings. They have also introduced
blueberries and seem to be coming out
of that experiment smelling like a
If FICO gets its pecan operation
into the shape it intends to, they will
have a double-barrel success in
blueberries and pecans. Nobody has
made a double-barrel success out of
the former swampland with anything
except tree farms before.
In the meantime, T.L. James has
sold its holdings, folded up their tent
and gone back to Rustin within the
last couple of years.
MK Ranches is still planting rice,
but it is mainly to feed their growing
investment in producing crawfish
The succulent fresh water crusta-
ceans have become a popular item ad
the future looks good with their

developed rice fields for rice produc-
tion if the rice picture brightens in the
Meanwhile, the vast fields of
soybeans, oats, wheat, corn and maize
has disappeared from the scene in.

would be a sin to allow these fields to
lie fallow, wouldn't it?
Well, they aren't!
Gulf County is beginning to
change right back to what it was
before it changed in the early 70's.
A ride through the county will
reveal huge fields of newly planted
pine seedlings, struggling to get tall
enough to see over the broom sedge
before the broom sedge gets tall
enough to shade out the pines.
If things keep going as they are
now, within about 10 years, Gulf
County will be a forest-dominated
county once more.
It'll be forest dominated except
for those portions growing crawfish,
pecans and blueberries.
So, after all that experimentation
and money spent, it seems our best
and most efficient crop has been
determined as being trees, of one sort

If I Could Do It ....
EVERYONE, I THINK, has dreamed of how life would be if they
were rich. I'm no exception.
I was a teenager in college when I developed a "Howard Hughes"
dream. How exciting it would be, I thought, to zip around the world in a
jet, surveying my vast holdings and seeing people snap to attention as I
entered a room.
Ahhhhh, but I now realize the dream shall never be. It could, though,
if I could get just one of my ideas to materialize.
Listed below are just few ideas I have that could catapult me into
the ranks of the "Super Rich", if I could only get a little kick-start. See if
you don't agree.
-Devis a plan to prevent kids from throwing clothes and wet towels
in the floor. This plan would sell better than coca-cola and McDonald
-Invent a fast acting sleeping gas that could be placed in all airliners
that, when activated, would put all aboard asleep, without detection,
within five seconds. After the first two groups of hijackers were hanged
from the airplane wing, there would be no more hijackings.
-Invent a computer chip that could be implanted in TV evangelist's
brains that would prevent them from straying from the "straight and
narrow." This invention would need no explanation.
--Convince the state of Florida to let me build a toll bridge from
Highway 98, somewhere close to the Wonder Bar, to Cape San Bias. I, of
course, would be allowed to keep all receipts. This bridge would divert all
thru traffic, especially Yankee settlers, around Port St. Joe, directly to
Apalachicola and make me rich at the same time; two things I'm sure
everyone would appreciate. The D.E.R. makes this plan impossible,
-Devise a mailbox and post office box that would automatically
destroy sw6epstake offers, free trips for land purchases and unsolicited
credit cards. The men in this country would buy them like fishing lures
and golf balls.
-A phone that would automatically "go dead" after 30 minutes when
a teenager was using it. It would also have a "no re-dial" feature that
would be effective for eight hours after it went dead.
-Develop a drive-thru shopping mall for men. Men could call in and
place their orders and then just drive through and pick them up without
getting out of their cars. This would make shopping for birthday and
anniversary gifts more convenient and save loads of time for golf,
fishing, poker and such.
-Construct a shopping mall for women that would feature several
adjoining motels. With this added feature, men could send their wives
and daughters on "shopping vacations" and spend much more time on
important things, like golf, fishing, poker and such.
-Devise a brand of toilet tissue that wouldn't be glued down at the
beginning of each roll. This unique idea would save millions of feet of
tissue each year-not to mention the time involved-and I could charge
much more for each roll. This idea, I believe, would make the other tissue
makers look like "Ned and the First Reader."
-Finally, I've thought of creating a public relations firm that would
talk to and soothe wives of men who stay out late drinking with the boys,
play golf or fish excessively or run around occasionally. I would be rich
within a month if this. one caught on.
I COULD ALSO start a sister-firm for the women. I would call it,
"Shopper's Anonymous". If effective, every man could have a new set of
golf clubs and a new bass boat in their yard.
Some good ideas, I think, if I could only get them off the ground.

Mowing Lawn Uncomplicated, but Improperly Done Can Ruin It
by Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Agent
We all know that watering is an
essential lawn care practice. The next
chore, inevitably, is mowing. Com-
pared to some landscape maintenance
work, lawn mowing is fairly uncom-
plicated. However, even the simplest
job can be done improperly. Incorrect
cutting can ruin a lawn in a hurry.
No matter what kind of grass you
have, mowing can make or break your
lawn. Naturally all lawns need
regular mowing for best appearance.
But, mowing too low weakens the
grass, and encourages the sod to thin
out. We have some hints to help avoid
such problems. In information on
mowing lawns properly was provided
by Extension Urban Horticulture Dr.
Robert J. Black.
Lawn grasses make their food
through a process called photosynthe-

sis. To do this, they need a good
healthy leaf surface. If a lawn is
mowed too low, too much of this
surface is lost, and the grass is unable
to produce enough food to maintain
itself. The grass literally starves.
When this happens, the sod becomes
very thin, weeds can invade the lawn,
and the grass is more susceptible to
insects and other pest problems.
Proper mowing height varies with
grass species. For example, a fine-
leaved bermuda can be cut as low as
ha'f-an-inch. But, a coarse textured
grass, such as Bahia or St. Augustine,
would be practically destroyed by
such cutting. So, it's important to
know how low your particular lawn-
grass can be cut without damage. If
you're not sure, check with your
garden supply center operator or
County Extension Agent.
Correct mowing frequency de-
pends on how fast your grass is
growing. During spring and summer,
when weather conditions usually
encourage rapid grass growth, lawns,
need to be mowed rather often. On the
other hand, winter growth is slower.
During the cool months, lawns need
fewer cuttings. Of course, a lawn
that's heavily fertilized will need to be
cut more often when one receiving
minimal fertilization. Also, lawngrass
species influences the need to mow. A
grass with a naturally fast growth
rate, like bermuda, will need more
frequent mowing than a slow grower,
Actually, your decision on when to
mow should be based on the amount of
growth since the last cutting, rather
than the number of days which have
elapsed. You should mow often
enough so that not more than
one-fourth to one-third of the total leaf
surface is removed by each cutting. In
other words, always leave more than
twice as much leaf surface as you cut
Always use a sharp, well-adjusted
mower. Dull blades do a tremendous
amount of damage. Avoid mowing the
grass when it's wet. Dry grass is
easier to cut, and it doesn't clog the
mower. Also, it's wise to use a bag
attachment on your mower, to catch
clippings. If clippings are allowed to
accumulate on the lawn, they tend to
smother the grass, promote thatch
buildup, and invite insects and
Never cut grass back drastically.
If your lawn has been allowed to grow
quite tall, you should gradually lower
its height with successive mowings.
This is a common problem when grass
is left unattended during a prolonged
absence during an extended business
trip, or Vacation. If this happens,
gradual reduction is the only proced-
ure. Excessive one-time mowing will
shock grass severely. Of course, the
best policy is to arrange for regular
lawn care while you're away.

A flock of brown pelicans congregates on the salt marshes of St. Joseph's Bay.
Brown Pelicans Increasing
In Numbers Along Coastline
The brown pelican, an endanger-
ed species a few years ago, is around
in increasing numbers now and there
is scarcely a visitor to the beach or
waterfront that is not familiar with
the bird with the big pouch, swooping
overhead or sitting quietly on a
But there is much that the casual
observer does not know about the big
bird. One of the foremost authorities
is Ralph Heath, director of the
Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary where
pelicans were first bred in captivity
and to which many former "patients"
still return from time to time.
According to Heath, 85 percent of
the pelicans brought to the sanctuary
for care have been injured by,
man-related incidents, usually fishing
hooks and line. Man, in fact, is the
main natural enemy of the pelicans
followed by the raccoon that some-
times invades the nesting colonies.
They are also victims of oil spills,
pesticides, guns, arrows, cars, boats
Chicks hatched by permanently
crippled pelicans at the sanctuary are
free to leave when they are old enough
to fly and care for themselves.
Although some of the behavior is no
doubt instinctive, they learn to feed
themselves by copying adults in the
Information published by the
sanctuary indicates that the pelican is
indeed a big bird with an adult having
a wingspread of from six to seven feet
tip to tip and weighing from five to
eight pounds. The male pelican is the
larger of the two and also has the
To keep its big body active, the
pelican consumes a lot of fish,
quivering as it eats to assist in the
metabloism of the food. Those living
in the wild eat about 3 to 4 pounds
daily, often eating surface minnows or
bait fish by diving from the air.
Pelicans in captivity, however, con-
sume only about one-half to two
pounds of fish.
One interesting thing about the
pelican s its identifying feature-the
pouch. Contrary to popular belief the
pouch is not used to carry fish. It is,
however, used to catch fish. It also
serves the pelican in much the same
way as a dog's tongue with the pelican
flapping it to cool its body tempera-
At two and a half to three years of
age, the Brown Pelican becomes
sexually mature and is ready to mate.
Heath has found that while pelicans in
the wild are polygamous, captive
pelicans tend to be monogamous. In a
pelican "family" it is the female who
builds the nest from twigs and grasses
brought by the male. In Florida the
nest is built in a mangrove tree where
two to four eggs are usually laid in
late winter or early spring. The
pelicans take turns incubating the
eggs and after 30 days the chicks
hatch. The young are fed fish
