Tracks Escapee to Wooded Area

Okaloosa Man Tries For An Hour to Elude Officers

"Hank" Rottweiler and his handler, Deputy Rick Pickron

Like the bounty hunters of the old West, "Hank"
(Rottweiler) stayed on the track of William
Randolph Alford Tuesday night, until he 'ran him
Alford, of Fort Walton Beach, was being
processed into the Gulf County jail for theft of a gun
and violation of parole late Tuesday afternoon,
when he bolted and ran from the jail processing
room and the Sheriff's office at the rear of the Gulf,
County Courthouse. The processing officer stepped
out of the room where he and Alford had been going
through the booking procedure for just a' moment
and Alford took advantage of that moment to take
Chief Deputy Jack Davilla said they surmised
Alford either ran out through a side door, into the
County Commission meeting room and then outside
or he ran out the front door of the Sheriff's
Department. "They were the only two doors
unlocked", Davilla said.
In the meantime, Rick Pickron and "Hank''had
stopped at a local restaurant where Pickron had
just sat down to eat a hamburger steak for supper
when the Department called on the radio for
"Hank" to come to work.
"Hank" led a contingent of some 10 to 12
officers from the Sheriff's office, the Port St. Joe

Police Department, The Game and Fish Depart-
ment, and the Florida Highway Patrol in a search
operation which took nearly an hour to complete,
before "Hank" cornered Alford in a wooded area
near the Florida Power Corporation substation at
the east end of 10th Street.
Alford was already on parole for unauthorized
use of a vehicle in Pennsylvania when he pulled into
Wewahitchka Tuesday and stopped at a SR 22 bar
asking for directions to a second bar. Iny Henderson
heard Alford's request for directions and offered to
take him to the second establishment. On the way,
Henderson stopped at a convenience store to make a
purchase, leaving Alford in her car. After she let
him out, she discovered a pistol she kept in her
glove compartment was missing and notified the
Sheriff's Department. '
Deputy Tom ,Godwin spotted Alford some hours
later at a Mexico Beach market and arrested him
for the gun theft, bringing him into, the jail about
5:00 p.m. By 6:30 he was on the loose again.
Davilla said the fugitive followed the AN
railroad tracks to a water-filled ditch near the
power'sub-station, crossed the ditch and apparently
holed Up inside the fence around the sub-station.'He'
then left the enclosed area and started up the tracks

About this time, "Hank" was getting hot on his
trail, tracking him to the yard and back outside the
"About the time he got outside the fence, his
head went into the air and he was sniffing out the
fugitive. I knew then he wasn't far away", Pickron
"Hank" followed Alford into the woods adjacent
to the tracks and cornered him. The appearance of
"Hank" caused Alford to stop and remain still.
When he attempted to move once, "Hank" nipped
his ear and Pickron called him off.
Alford's escape caused extreme anxiety in the
courthouse, remembering the shooting of Judge W.
L. Bailey, attorney Tom Engles and Peggy White
Paulk nearly a year ago. Clyde Melvin is scheduled
to go on trial for those slaying early next month.
The memories of that particular day heightened
the concern over the escaped felon Tuesday evening
and caused some uneasy moments in the County
Commission meeting going on inside a room in the
same building as the Sheriff's office. Alford was
apprehended at about 7:30, a half hour after the
meeting started.
Alford has been charged with resisting arrest
without violence, theft of a firearm, possession of a
firearm by a felon and violation of parole.

Residents of Gulf Aire were vocal
in opposing a planned mobile home
park for their area Tuesday night,
asking the County Commission if they
could do anything to stop it.
Dick Leferle advised the Board
that real estate developer Ike Duren
was planning to put the park on
property between the Gulf Aire
sewage 'disposal plant and Highway 98

and voiced opposition from residents
in the Gulf Aire development.
Ike Duren was in the audience for
another reason, and Commissioner
Billy Branch turned to Duren and
asked, "Is there a trailer park
planned here?". Duren replied, "I'm
going to subdivide the property and
sell lots for development. There are no
plans for a rental park there". Duren

went on to say there "would be
considerable restrictions" in the area.

vised Leferle, Ellen Allemore and Lee

Forestry Camp Work

Nearing Completion

Work on the state's new Forestry Camp facility on the Howard Creek is
T progressing rapidly toward its anticipated July completion, according to
information from County Administrative Assistant Larry Wells.
The photo on the left shows some of the buildings which are being erected on
the 20 acre site near Cypress Creek, which will house tip to 200 youthful
offenders as well as support buildings for the installation.
The camp is part of an experimental program by the Florida Department of
Corrections to rehabitate youthful first-time offenders in a work ethic
environment rather than incarcerate them in a maximum security prison. The
work camp will be a minimum security installation.
Inmates at the camp will be under the direction of the Florida Forest
Service and will be utilized by the Forest Service, the Park Service, county and
city government to perform certain chores inside the county.
The new facility is expected to pump better than $2 million into the Gulf
County economy each year and will provide approximately 45 new jobs in the

We 're Dealing

with Mad Dogs

The whole world breathed a sign of relief the other day
when the Palistine liberation outlaws released the hostages on
that Kuwaiti 747 which traveled all over the middle east for
nearly two weeks.
The terrorists said they were trying to force Kuwait to
release some of their fellow terrorists who had been tossed in
the jug for plying their trade, namely, blowing up innocent
people to try and make the world have sympathy for their
All of this was done in the name of their god, you
understand, so they felt they were entirely justified in ripping
innocent people to pieces with bombs or filling numbers of
by-standers with bullets, just to draw attention to themselves.
In the airplane and hostage incident, the Palistinians
announced they were on a mission from Allah to make the
50-odd people held hostage on the airplane, suffer until they
could get the outlaws held in Kuwait jails released.
As ghastly as it is, it appears as if the only thing these
terrorists understand is kill or be killed. There is no middle
ground. This particular group callously killed at least two
people and just dumped them out of the airplane like two
garbage bags full of trash, merely to emphasize they wanted
what they wanted.
Anybody who could kill anybody that callously, be the killer
or the victim, Arab, Jew, Indian, black, white, red, yellow or
chartreuse-that person is an animal and deserves to be caged
by Kuwait or anybody else who could capture him.
While we do not agree with the heavy handed tactics of the
Jews in the Middle East area, the activities of the Palistinians
over the past two weeks, toward those of their own race, has
gone a long way to convince us that possibly the only way to
control these people is just as the Jews are attempting to do it.
We're dealing with mad dogs here.
We don't envy the Jews their position or location in the
world. We don't envy those from our nation who must travel to
this part of the world in order to attempt to bring a little order
and peace out of the present insanity which reigns in that part of
the world.
It's much easier to sit safely here and criticize than it is to
get involved in such a seeming hopeless venture.

Same Old Problem

We, don't know their plans so we'll try to be kind about
something which is needed in our community.
You remember last year, we chided Governor Martinez
about hiking taxes by more than a billion dollars and still didn't
have the money to mow and clean up Constitution Museum
;. Well,! .i.'s spring add early summer and the same old
Problem has grown up in a gaggle of weeds and trash once
again. This time, however, we have not waited until the area
was ripe for a family of jungle-dwelling animals to move in.
This time, the vista of lawn, tall stately pines and palm trees is,
to the swiftly passing observer, still not too much of an eyesore.
A purposeful inspection will reveal the beginnings of a real
bumper crop of weeds, a problem with insects and disease in
the grass, a pitiful need for a few drams of fertilizer and a little
loving care.
We don't think it will take too much of the latter. This park
has been neglected now, beginning the third year, so it is
becoming hardened to the spartan existence it is apparently
expected to live.
Those of us here in Port St. Joe, right in the middle of throes
to get out community cleaned up and beautified, would feel
more than kindly to the state of Florida, if it could spare a
couple of its people for a couple of days to fix up this memorial
to the signing of our state's first constitution and get it ready for
the long haul of the summer months which lie ahead.
We realize we are probably asking too much to expect it be
kept like any other park in the state. We realize the state is too
busy buying more property it can't care for to find the
money or time to take care of what it already has; but would
you please try?




Hunker Down with Kes


by Kesley Colbert

Estine Had Everybody's Number

As I think back on it now about the
longest phone conversation I had as a
twelve year old was fifteen seconds. It
went like this -
"'Miss Estine, would you get me
Bobby, please?"
"Must be a ballgame today."
"Yes ma'am."
"Hey, Bob the ballgame's at
"Bye bye Miss Estine."
You could even save time by not
looking up the number. Miss Estine
always came on with "Number
please" but shucks, who could
remember that Bobby was 311 or
Ricky was 211, Buddy was 412; so
you'd just tell Estine who you wanted.
Don't you wish it still worked that way
today? You could pick up the phone
and say, "Good morning, I'd like to
speak to Eugene in Portland, Oregon,
I'm not near about as old as Leon
but he says getting up a ballgame was
a lot quicker back in the days with our
wall phone. I just barely remember
that old phone and spoke on it only
when i~ called Pa and Gran. Mother
would get a chair from the kitchen to
make me taller and she'd hold the ear-
phone as I shouted into the mouth-
piece. I don't think Southern Bell had
optic fibers and the like back then.
You couldn't have heard a pin drop at
the other end you could barely hear
Pa. So I shouted like everyone else
hoping Pa was catching a little of it.
The thing that made the wall
phone great for getting up games was
the party line. Leon said one call did it

all. You could ring a long and two
shorts, two longs, one short and one
long didn't matter, everybody was
going to pick up anyway. He says
you'd ring a number, wait a few
seconds till you'd hear everybody
"click on", then announce that the
ballgame was at ten. I remember that
we'd get to the field a little before ten
and sure enough, everybody would be
there. And those folks at AT&T adver-
tise that "conference calling" like.it's
something new.
And when I was twelve I never,
ever, ever, ever received a call from a
girl. Well, Mary E. Pendleton called
me once but she don't count. Mary E.,
as you know, was kind'a out in left
field. Real girls never called. Us guys
would sit around during recess and
tell each other how we didn't want
them to. But you know, and I'd never
tell the fellas this, I'd get home at
night and kind'a hope that LaRenda
might call. She never did. By the time
that I got a little older, and had
mustered up enough courage to speak
to a girl LaRenda was going steady
with Billy Ed Scarbrough. I used to
wonder if she ever called him ...
Now, I have brought all of this up
today 'cause I've got a twelve year old
son. He stays on the phone. And I don't
think he's a'getting up a ballgame
either. He receives more phone calls
from girls than he does boys. And he
will talk sometimes for as long as thir-
ty minutes. Can you believe that?
Listen, Traci Gaddis has trouble keep-
ing a conversation going that long -
and she's a professional talker.
My first wife reminds me daily
that times have changed. And I admit

to being a tad on the old-fashioned
side. And I can live with the phone
ringing just barely, but I can live
with it. And I can deal with the calls
from the girls. After-all I'm older and
more mature than most of them. I
won't hang up on a twelve year old.
But what I'm trying to figure out and
it baffles the heck out of me is what
do they talk about for thirty minutes
or an hour night after night. When I
was twelve I could tell you absolutely
everything I knew in eight minutes.
Now I'm not trying to invade his
privacy and stuff. But I'm his father.
And I'm curious, interested and con-

Birmingham advised the au-

the Board's permission to proceed
with plans for the park.

Duren was requesting permission
to place water and sewer facilities in
the road right-of-way leading into the
new Seashores development. He was
also asking if he could -attach the

around. She'd know.

get a legal opinion, on the road
request, since it was a private road
they had never accepted.

population of the wildlife in our back
yard down at 111 Allen Memorial
Way. The birds are hunting a place to
build nests, the squirrels are spending
more and more of the day playing and
even the worms are wiggling more
lively when I turn one up while
spading to put down a tomato or a bell
pepper plant.
Most of my "crop" is in the
ground, and the grass has already
been cut once this season.
The other day, Tommy Brock
brought me a load of dirt to spread
and I'm now negotiating to get it
spread. It's amazing how a little load
of dirt can keep my grandsons at a
distance. They don't mind disturbing
my sleep, robbing me of my chair,

back yard has evolved into an
everyday chore for me. The birds and
the squirrels are just like a dog or a
cat when it comes to feeding them a
scrap or two.
We have fed birds off and on for
years, with bird feeders hanging from
the trees, bushes and the clothesline
(which never held clothes), but
nothing on a regular basis. If Frenchie
or I thought of it, we'd buy some wild
bird seed when we were in the super
market and if we didn't think of it, the
birds had to just do the best they

birds and a pair of red neadea
woodpeckers have shown up, we
maintain an ample supply of a ration
consisting of one bag of sunflower
seeds and another bag of wild bird
seed, mixed together.
They seem to like that.-
There's nothing you can do with
the birds, except watch them, but it's
a pleasure to spend a few minutes or
hours watching a pair of bright red
cardinals or brilliant bluebirds pause
at the bird feeder. They seem to hang
around a little longer when there is
something to eat.
I'm not a bird watcher, but I think
the new birds I have seen recently are
finches. They have a dark head and
vest. The dark coat extends over the
top of their wings, with the remainder
of the bird being a dusky light blue.

oaks, vines and large azalea bushes
all fighting for the same sunshine.
The squirrels of the neighborhood
meet in this spot and they cavort up
and down those trees and bushes and
more than amply pay for the daily
ration of peanuts with their free show
of tag, limb racing and chattering.
Squirrels don't come cheap, how-
ever. I started feeding them off and on
about a year ago, and attracted a pair,

other end.

even sitting on the arm which holds
the feeder to the tree.
They will scoot up the tree when I
reach for the feeder, but I can now

and coax them to come down and take
a peanut.
They're not scared of me and I
hope that doesn't get them killed at
some time in the future.
Ferrell Allen made me one of his
squirrel teasers and brought it over,
so the little buggers have the best of
both worlds in my back yard. They
have a playground apparatus in the
squirrel teaser and they have a feeder

And, for it all, I get more pleasure
than money can buy.

Karol Altstaetter and William Bentley Are Wed

Karol Lynn Altstaetter and Wil-
liam Michael Bentley were joined in
holy matrimony April 16 at 8:00 p.m.
in the Little Brown Chapel in a wooded
setting in Jacksonville. The Rev.
Darrell Murray performed the can-
dlelight, double ring ceremony.
The bride is the daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. W.L. Altstaetter of Port St.
Joe, the bridegroom is the son of Mr.
and Mrs. William Norman Bentley of
Fort Myers. The bride's maternal
grandparents are Mrs. Grace Cashey
and the late Waldo J. Beer and Mrs..
Mildred Altstaetter and the late O.L.
The bridegroom's maternal

(..grandparents are the late Mr. and
r Mrs. William Bentley. Spring floral
designs decorated both the chapel and
reception area.
The bride was given in marriage
by her parents and escorted to the
altar by her father. The bride was
radiant in a floor length gown of
lustrous satin in antique ivory. The
beauty of the fitted princess style
bodice was enhanced by a frosting of
Chantilly lace. Appliques of Venise
lace embellished the bodice with its
modified basque waistline. A stand-up
collar fashioned of delicately appli-
qued Venise lace framed the face of
the bride. Long satin sleeves delicate-
ly puffed at the shoulder tapering to
lily points at the wrist, accentuated
the design of the gown. Venise lace
edging outlined the waistline; pearl
buttons lent a classically romantic
accent at the back and on the sleeves,
from elbow to wrist. The train was-
bustled and caught up at the center

crystal and pearls adorned the
exquisite tiara which was made of
Venise lace. The bride carried a
spring floral bouquet.
The bride's sister, and only
attendant, Kay. Ann Upchurch of

length gown in matte taffeta in a rich
shade of cerise. The bodice featured
short, off the shoulder, puffed sleeves.
The design of the sheath gown was
highlighted by an overlay panel in the
back that trailed to a point at the

the perfect finishing touch.

Our Town
RECENTLY WE HAD the Grand Opening for The Phantry Hotel and
Business Center, Big A Cleaners-located in the business center-and for
the new offices (relocated) of Sure Shot Pest Control.
In keeping with tradition, we had a "ribbon cutting" and invited the
mayor, the sheriff and several other business and community leaders to
attend and participate. Wesley Ramsey, editor of The Star, was kind
enough to come over and take a picture of the ribbon cutting and publish
it the following week.
My brother who lives in Atlanta receives The Star. The Saturday
following our Grand Opening, he called me. When I answered the phone,
he was laughing. "What a classic picture," he said, between laughs. "It
reminds me," he continued, "of a small town general store opening about
fifty years ago. I wouldn't take anything for this picture!" he concluded.
I'LL BE THE FIRST to admit that Port St. Joe ain't Atlanta.. thank
goodness! And I like Atlanta. Atlanta is the friendliest of all the big towns
in the world; at least the ones I have visited.
Anyway, we have much to be proud of here in Port St. Joe, some of
which we overlook from time to time. Listed below are just a few points
and assets that make me proud to live in our town.
-The first constitution for the State of Florida was signed here in
Port St. Joe, somewhere close to Allen Memorial Way. We are known as
"The Constitution City."
-We have water access. There are three different areas of water
that meet in Port St. Joe. We have access to the Gulf of Mexico, St. Joe
Bay waves lap upon our shore and the Intercostal Waterway enters at
Highland View.
-We have a dedicated mayor. Although Frank Pate is considered
full-time, his pay isn't enough to cover the gas it takes to attend city
council meeting, much less all the other events he is required to attend,.
Frank can change clothes in a tanning machine and do it faster than
-We have the one and only, "Traveling Harmonica Man." Frank
Blow is unique. Where else but Port St. Joe can a person pick up a man
and give him a ride to a nearby city and be serenaded all the way there?
Keep it going, Frank!
-A fast food establishment that serves food so slow that you're not
hungry by the time the food gets to you. Last week, I understand, three
cars and a pick-up ran-out of gas while waiting in the drive-thru lane.
-We have a one-way street. Many people who visit Port St. Joe don't
realize that we have Palm Boulevard. Even people who live here don't
use it as much as they should and sometimes forget when they have
visitors to point it out to them.
-Port St. Joe has three (3) red lights. Most people think we only have
two because they are on Highway 98. The third red light is tucked in the
middle of Reid Avenue and 3rd Street. We should bring this to more
people's attention.
-A large, grand house, located in the downtown area that is named
after a French feudal castle. Although it is pronounced the same, the
spelling is somewhat different. It is pronounced, Chateau, but the Port St.
Joe spelling is C-h-a-t-o. Also, our telephone company, although it has a
name, is listed under the P's for, Phone Company.
-Port St. Joe also has a man who is a complete and total fool. What
else could you think of a person who gets, on a 100,000 watt radio station
and gives traffic reports from metropolitan areas such as Port St. Joe,
Two Egg, Esto and Indian Pass?

GEE, AFTER THINKING about it and putting it down on paper, I
wonder why,Vanyoqne but us would want tive; herei a,,.. d

Don't stop taking a prescription drug after you begin
to feel better unless your physician approves. This is
most important. Often anything less than the full
course of treatment may prevent the medicine from
completely correcting the condition.
For example, not taking the prescribed amount of an
antibiotic allows either the "bug" or your body to
become resistant to it. Not enough of the required
medicine may be worse than none at all.

Tour SJC

Box Plant
It takes more than a million board
feet of corrugated cartons per ,day to
keep St. Joe Container's Port S't Joe
plant busy;, the Kiwams Club. lrned
last Tuesday., : ',: ..,
Taking a tour of the plant, the club
members were introduced to the
firm's new highly automated corru-
gating machine, presses which print,
cut, crease, staple and stack boxes in
one operation. Other machines were
in the plant's .equipment inventory
which coated the corrugated medium
with wax to make it water-proof.
Another machine coated' the sheets of
corrugated on'both sides to make
them stronger and. impervious to
outside moisture as well as inside.
There was a department where
dies were made to place on the giant
presses to cut, crease, slot and print
the boxes in several colors,,
A lot of the heavy work has been
taken out of carton making, guide Bill
Holton, sales manager for the plant,
told the visitors. St. Joe Container has
mechanized some of .the heavier,
more bulky jobs, which has tremen-
dously stepped up production, cut
down on injuries and makes the job
more pleasant for the employees.
St. Joe Container, it was learned,
ships cartons all over the southeast
and will, if you twist their arms, make
millions of cartons for several South
American countries to pack apples in.
"We're in business to make a
first-rate carton for most any use",
Holton said, and they do. There were
cartons being made in the plant for
packing everything from gladiolus to
port-a-let wastes for disposal.
Talk about your jack of 411 trades!

sioners; of Gulf County, Florida, met
March 22, 1988 in regular session with

and Commissioners Money, Peters,
-Branch, and Traylor. Others present
were: Attorney William J. Rish,
Administrative Assistant Civil De-
fense Director Larry Wells, Clerk
Benny C. Lister, Deputy Clerk Towan
Collier, Road Superintendent Bob
Lester, Mosquito Control Director
Sam Graves, Jr., Sheriff Al Harrison
and Building Inspector DeWayne ,
The meeting came to order at 7:00 ,
Administrative Assistant Wells.
opened the meeting with prayer and
led the pledge of allegiance to the flag.
Upon motion by Peters, second by
Traylor, and unanimous vote, the
Board approved the minutes of March
8, 1988, regulate meeting, after cor-
Pursuant to advertisement to
receive sealed bids for bridging
materials to be used by the Road
Department, the following companies
entered bids: Apalachee Pole Co.,
Inc., pilings only; Johnson's Lumber
& Supply, all items; Langdale Forest
Products Co., all items; Marine
Timber Treating, all items; Post &
Lumber, all items; and Treated
Timber Products Co., all items. Bid
amounts were not detailed due to
lengthiness, and originals were turned
over to the Clerk to make copies
f9 available. Upon motion by Traylor,
second by Money, and unanimous
vote, the Board directed Road Super-
intendent Lester to study these bids
and make a recommendation to the
Board at the next meeting.
Branch entered the meeting at
this time.
Marion Hough, resident of Beacon
Hill, appeared before the Board, and
made a presentation on A.I.D.S. A
copy of the presentation is on file in
the Clerk's office.
Joe Griffin, .resident of Highland
View, discussed a ditch problem on
6th St. in Highland View. He presented
pictures, stating the ditch has not
been maintained in 13 years, and
requested the Board have it piped.
Peters stated he has observed the
ditch, and it is a health hazard. He
stated the ditch is land-locked, and
moved the Board pipe the ditch at
county expense. Branch seconded the
motion. Money stated he has also seen
the ditch, and agrees that it is
hazardous. During further discussion,
it was stated that there are other
areas in the county that have ditches
that are land-locked. Branch stated
Mrs. Griffin had contacted him about
this situation several times, and each
time he had told her it was the Board's
policy for the landowners to purchase
the pipe, and for the County to install
it. Birmingham stated that this is the
Board's present policy, and that this is
not a unique situation. He also stated
the Board's policy can be changed any
time there is a majority vote. Money
then discussed a situation in Oak
Grove approximately a year ago,
where landowners there had to
purchase the pipe, and the County
installed it. Peters stated he feels the
people in his district would want him
to support situations such as this, that
is why he made the motion, and he
feels this should be a government of
the people, by the people, and for the
people. Peters then asked Mr. and
Mrs. Griffin if the Board would have
permission to go on their land to
install the pipe, if the motion passes.
The Griffins stated yes. The motion
passed with the following vote.
Peters, Branch and Traylor voted
yed. Money voted no, stating he was
doing so because the people in his
district (Oak Grove) had to pay for
their pipe, and Birmingham voted no,
stating he feels the Board should come
up with an overall system to handle all
ditches such as this. The Board
directed Mosquito Control Director
Graves to handle this project, and
discussed the length of the ditch and
the size of the pipe needed for the
At this time the meeting recessed
for a short break. The meeting
reconvened at 7:55 p.m.
Pursuantd to advertisement to
receive sealed bids, and upon recom-
mendation by Road Superintendent
Lester, Peters moved the Board
accept the low bid from Ball Petro-
leum, to furnish fuels for the Road
Department. Money seconded the
motion, and it passed unanimously.
Upon recommendation by Mosquito
Control Director Graves, motion by
Branch, second by Traylor, and
unanimous vote, the Board accepted
S the low bid from Miller Agency, to
furnish fuels for the Mosquito Control
Department. The Board directed
Road Superintendent Lester to nego-
tiate with Ball Petroleum to get some
special fuels that are needed by the'
Road Department.
Mosquito Control Director Graves
reported there are two water wells,
that belong to the Northwest Florida
Water Management District, in the
middle of Buckhorn Landfill, and
asked the Board to write them,
requesting they fill up the holes. With
no objections from the Board, Chair-
man Birmingham directed Adminis-
trative Assistant Wells write this
Building Inspector Manuel dis-
cussed a problem he is having with
assigning a street address on County
Road 387, which has also been called
the Howard's Creek Road and Doc

Whitfield Road, and stated he needs
an official name for the road to be able
to assign the address. Traylor stated
the Board had named it the Doc
Whitfield at a previous meeting. After
discussion, and upon motion by
Branch, second by Traylor, and
unanimous vote, the Board agreed to
call it County Road 387 Doc Whitfield
Building Inspector Manuel dis-
cussed incorrect street numbers
throughout Highland View, and in-
quired as to whether the Board
wanted to correct these numbers, or

leave them as they are. Chairman
Birmingham asked the opinion of
Branch in this matter, and Branch
recommended the Board leave the
numbers as they are, until there is
time to go through Highland View and
discuss it with the residents there.
Upon inquiry by Branch, Building
Inspector Manuel reported that leav-
ing the numbers as they are will
create problems in the future. Branch
stood by his recommendation not to
change the numbers at this time.
Birmingham requested Branch check
into this to see what the Board should
do, and directed Building Inspector
Manuel to proceed with the project,
leaving the numbers as they are.
Building Inspector Manuel in-
quired into whether or not he should
charge commercial businesses for
copies of the House Numbering Maps.
Birmingham stated the commercial
businesses should at least pay the
costs of the maps, and the Board
agreed for the Building Inspector to
charge the same price that the
Property Appraiser's Office charges
for their maps.
Mosquito Control Director Graves
reported the ditch-piping project in
Highland View would cost approxi-
mately $5,000.00, and inquired about
where the money should come from.
Chairman Birmingham stated he
intends to discuss this with the Board
later in the meeting.
Administrative Assistant Wells
presented an invoice from North
Florida Construction, Inc., submitted
to him from Baskerville-Donovan
Engineers, for the work done at the
White City Boat Ramp, for the
Board's approval. He reported the
work at the boat ramp is completed,
and the additional rip-rap has been
installed. He also stated the invoice is
for 95 percent of the total costs, the
other five percent is to be retained
until the Board is certain everything is
in order. Upon motion by Peters,
second by Traylor, and unanimous'
vote, the Board approved payment of
the invoice.
Administrative Assistant Wells
reported that additional information
had been received on the 911 System
since the last meeting. He discussed
the system which they had previously
checked into, where there would be
one central dispatch point and a speed
dialing key. system to send the call
back out to the emergency depart-
mend needed, which would include the
Sheriff's Department, St. Joe Police,
St. Joe Fire Department, all Volun-
teer. Fire Departments, St. Joe
Ambulance, and Wewahitchka Ambu-
lance. The basic system would cost
$.50 per line for 18 months,, which
would generate. approximately
$45,000.00 to the County, and after 18
months, the cost would drop to $.12 to
'$.15 per line. Administrative Assistant
Wells also discussed State require-
ments concerning the' 911 System,
which include recording equipment
and upgrading of the existing system
in the Sheriff's ,Department. -JHe
requested the Board allow him to
check into upgrading the entire
Courthouse telephone system, be-
cause the Sheriff is presently on a
rotary dial system, as is the Court-
house, and they would have to go to a
touchtone system. It would save
money, he stated, to upgrade all the
equipment at the same time, and also
because the present telephone system
is being rented from St. Joe Commun-
ications, and the new system would be'
purchased. He also discussed the
possibility of the Constitutional Offi-
cers, and other offices involved,
budgeting money in next year's
budget, or that the Board might put
money into the budget to purchase the
system. This way all systems will
come together at the same time. The
Board agreed for Administrative
Assistant Wells to investigate upgrad-
ing the Courthouse telephone system.,
Peters discussed the possibility of the
Sheriff paying for his portion of the
upgrading. Sheriff Harrison reported
he is aware that he has to go to a
touchtone system, and that he will
have to pay this portion. Administra-
tive Assistant Wells reported that all
the phones in the Sheriff's. Depart-
ment would have to be changed.
Clerk Lister presented an invoice
from Medicaid, in the amount of
$7,794.83, for the month of February,
for the Board's approval. Upon
motion by Branch, second by Traylor,
and unanimous vote, the Board.
approved payment of the invoice.
Lister requested the Board accept
the Annual Audit Report for 1986-87.
Peters moved the Board accept the
report, and Money seconded the
motion. Branch stated it was prema-
ture to accept the audit report without
someone coming to review it with the
Board. After further discussion, the
Board directed Lister and Wells to
respond to the audit report. Money
then withdrew his second, and Peters
withdrew his motion. The Board
requested Lister and Wells draw up a
response and forward copies to the
Board members. The Board then
directed Lister also request Mike
Tucker, Auditor, attend the next
regular meeting to discuss questions
anyone might have concerning the
audit report.
Attorney Rish discussed a memo-
randum from the Office of the
Comptroller, concerning the deadline
for filing the Annual Financial
Report, which is March 31, 1988.
Attorney Rish discussed a letter
received from the Florida Depart-
ment of Environmental Regulation
concerning Gulf County's non-compli-
ance of landfill regulations at Buck-
horn Landfill, and reported that if

Mosquito Control Director Graves will
get with him concerning this matter
he will respond to the letter.
Attorney Rish read a response
letter he had prepared in reference to
a letter received from the Florida
Department of Natural Resources
concerning their intent to close the
State Recreation Area at the Dead
Lakes as of April 1, 1988. The Board
agreed to Attorney Rish's response
letter, which thanked Mr. Landrum
for their cooperation in allowing the

park to stay open, with the State
continuing to operate it, for 2 or 3
more years to give the County time to
promote use of the park, and the
County agrees to "freshen up" the
park for the upcoming season.
Sheriff Harrison discussed the
removal of the paint from the walls at
the County Jail and reported that he
had been contacted by Billy Parker,
who stated he would come to the jail
and dlo a ten by ten sample area to see
if this would suit the Sheriff's
purposes. Parker also stated he would
do -he whole job for $875.00. Sheriff
Harrison requested the Board give
him permission to hire Parker to do
the job, if the sample is suitable, since
Parker's scheduled time he could do it
(April 8-27) would fall before the next
Board meeting. Upon motion by
Peters, second by Traylor, and
unanimous vote, the Board agreed for
Parker to do the job if the sample is
acceptable with the Sheriff.-
Harrison discussed the need for
an ordinance prohibiting any form of
dog fighting or raising of dogs for this
purpose in Gulf County. He also
reported there had been nine dog
complaints in the last week, and
discussed one incident he had seen
where the dogs were only staked, not
in pens or inside fences. The Board
agreed for Sheriff Harrison to get with
Attorney Rish to work up. a proposed
Chairman Birmingham requested
the Board decide from which fund the
money should come, to pay for the
pipe to be installed in the ditch on 6th
St. in Highland View. After discus-
sion, Peters moved the Board pay for
the pipe from General Fund Contin-
gency. Traylor seconded the motion,
and it passed unanimously.
Birmingham discussed a letter
from the Wewahitchka Ambulance
Service, concerning their telephone
system. They received a letter from
St. Joe Telephone Company that their
present system is going to change.
They have been looking at several
systems, to find one that is suitable for
them and for the County. Birmingham
then discussed a proposal, from the
Wewahitchka Ambulance Service,
recommending the Board purchase a
two-way radio-type system. This will
serve two purposes, it will be cheaper
than a new telephone system, and it
will give them more freedom to
answer calls when they are away
from the telephones. The Wewahitch-
ka Ambulance Service made this
recommendation, hoping to save the
County between $13,000.00 and
$15,000.00 in the first 5 years.
Birmingham then requested the
Board receive bids, for the next
meeting, on this radio system, and he
stated he had specifications they had
drawn up. The new system should cost
$20,000.00 to $25,000.00, which will be a
one-time expenditure. Birmingham
stated there is money in the Capital
Outlay fund that was brought for-
ward, but had not been budgeted, that
could, be used. Traylor moved the
Board accept bids for this radio
system for the Wewahitchka Ambu-
lance Service, and Peters seconded
the motion. After further discussion
by Branch, concerning the money in
Capital Outlay that was brought
forward, but not budgeted, the motion
passed unanimously;
Birmingham presented the signed
contract between the Board of County
Commission and Glennco Construc-
tion, for renovation of the Board
Room, and stated that the project
could begin.
Birmingham discussed the letter
from the Florida Department of
Environmental Regulation, concern-
ing the non-compliance of regulations
by Gulf County, and requested
Branch, Administrative Assistant
Wells, and Mosquito .Control Director
Graves get with Attorney Rish to
prepare a response to the Department
of Environmental Regulation.
Peters discussed' the employee
seniority problem at the Road Depart-
ment, stating he had a list of the
employees, according to dates of
employment, and recommended Road
Superintendent Lester take the list to
his employees, and explain to them
that this will be used to determine
seniority. He also stated that any
objections to this list should be
brought before the Board at the next
meeting, otherwise it will be adopted
Sas the seniority list.
Peters inquired into the status of
the emergency generator project.
Wells reported that he has no
information at this time.
Peters inquired into the status of
the disposal of the old batteries at the
Road Department. Road Superinten-
dent Lester reported the batteries
have been sold, and the money, was
turned in at the Clerk's Office.
Peters discussed a letter, from a
School Board employee, concerning
the installation of a traffic light at the
intersection of Long Avenue and Niles
Road. Peters requested James Han-
lon, School Board member, explain
the problems they were having at this
intersection. Hanlon stated he had no
knowledge of this situation, and was
presented with a copy of the letter.
After further discussion about solu-
tions for this intersection, and upon
motion by Branch, second by Peters,
and unanimous vote, the Board
directed the Sheriff to look into this
matter. Wells was directed to write
Sheriff Harrison a letter, requesting
he look into this, and make a
recommendation back to the Board.
Peters discussed an alternative to

the tax on gasoline to fund paving and
repair of county roads. He stated it
could come from the Local Option
Sales Tax, defined in Florida Statutes
Chapter 212.055. He also stated he
likes it because it must be placed on
the referendum for the voters to
approve. Peters reported that levying
a $.01 sales tax would bring in
$307,100.00 for the County, $127,000.00
for the City of Port St. Joe, and
$57,900.00 for the City of Wewahitch-
ka, which is more than the $.05 gas
tax would bring. Peters then moved
the Board put this on the ballot for the
people to decide if they want this $.01

seconded the motion for discussion.
The Board then discussed what the
money would be used for, length of
time tax is good for; whether or not it
could be used for road repair, if they
could receive matching funds from
the State, and when it could be placed
on the ballot. Branch then requested
the Board be furnished' copies of the
information concerning this Local
Option Sales Tax before they proceed
further. Branch stated he feels the gas
tax is the best solution at this time, to
keep from committing the sales tax to
road repair, and he withdrew his
second. The motion then died for lack
of a second. The Board directed Lister
to provide copies of the information on
the Local Option Sales Tax to all
Board members. Chairman Birming-
ham stated two good points about this
program would be that the people
would vote on it, and it is possible the
ad valorem taxes could be reduced by
the amount that is taken in for the
sales tax. Peters stated the tipping fee
would bring in money for the
incinerator project that Branch dis-
cussed earlier.
Branch requested the Board allow
him to make some corrections to the
minutes of March 8, 1988, since he was
not here during the beginning of the
meeting. Upon motion by Money,
second by Traylor and unanimous
vote by all members (Branch exclud-
ed), the Board agreed to allow him to
make corrections, with Peters re-
commending Branch be- on time for
the next meeting. Branch apologized
for being late, and stated the Highland
View Bridge sometimes catches peo-
ple who live on the other side. After
further corrections, and upon motion
by Peters, second by Traylor, and
unanimous vote, the Board approved
the minutes of the regular meeting of
March 8, 1988.
'Branch moved the Board allow
the Mosquito Control Department to
install a security light at the White
City Park. Money seconded the
motion, and it passed unanimously.
Branch reported that a Mosquito
Control Department employee was
interested in placing a trailer on the
: land at the Whit,. City Park, to watch
out for the property, and requested
the Board allow the employee to do
this. He also stated he would like the
arrangements to be suitable to both
parties, and a hold-harmless agree-
ment should be worked up to include
his family. The Board made no
Branch requested the Board get a
written agreement from the property
owners to go on their property to
maintain the ditch, after the piping
has been done. Attorney Rish also
discussed getting a hold-harmless
agreement for flooding. After further
discussion, the Board agreed to get a
hold-harmless agreement for flooding
and a maintenance agreement that
also prohibits the landowners from
obstructing the area by the ditch.
Branch invited the Board to
inspect a ditch that crosses Avenue F
in front of Roy Lee Williams' house,
which is an "eyesore" and a safety
hazard, and stated that piping the
ditch would help the problem. Mosqui-
to Control Director Graves reported
his department has been working on
this ditch. Branch still requested the
Board take a look at the ditch. Upon
inquiry by Peters, Branch stated he is
suggesting the ditch be piped. The
Chairman stated this ditch is in the
city limits, and putting in pipe would
be the responsibility of the City of Port
St. Joe. Branch then stated that it is a
Mosquito Control ditch, which would
include it as one of the County's
Branch discussed a copy of a
letter received from the Bay County
Board of County Commissioners,
directed to John M. Awad of the
Department of Health and Rehabilita-
tive Services, concerning the updated
Mental Health Plan of 1986-89 Provi-
sion. Branch moved the Board table
this matter and take action on it at the
next regular meeting when everyone
has had a chance to look it over. Wells
is to provide copies of this plan to all
members of the Board.
Branch discussed a letter, memo-
randum, and resolution received from
the Hernando County Board of County
Commissioners, and moved the Board
also adopt a resolution opposing
House Bill 13, which would allow
employees within each governmental
agency to meet periodically to identi-
fy, analyze, and solve problems within
the agency. Money seconded the
motion, and it passed with the
following .vote. Birmingham, Money,
Branch and Traylor voted yes,. Peters
voted no.
Traylor requested the Board&
write the Florida Game and Fresh
Water Fish Commission, asking them
to close the Dead Lakes to fishing
during bedding season. The Board
directed Wells write the letter.
Money moved the Board adopt a
resolution opposing the dredging of
oysters in Apalachicola Bay. Peters
seconded the motion, and after
discussion, it passed unanimously.
Copies are to be forwarded to the
Florida Game and Fresh Water Fish
Commission, Senator Barron and
Representative Trammell.
There being no further business,
the meeting did then adjourn.
