Floods Hit Beach Area

In case you were wondering .
. the drought has been broken in
Gulf County.
Heavy rainfall estimated in
some areas of the county-par-
ticularly the St. Joe Beach
estimated as much as eight
inches in just five hours' time,
caused flooding where flooding
has never been experienced be-
The St. Joe Beach area was
where the hardest rain fell and
the most flooding occurred. Resi-
dents in the .area said that not
even during the 1985 hurricanes
did rain fall so intensely nor was
,there flooding like there was
Rainfall started at about 7:30
a.m., Monday and it didn't let up
until at least three homes had
water inside and a little more
than a mile of Americus Avenue
was under water, flooding yards,
rising in garages and out-build-
ings and running in parked cars.
Gulf County Civil Defense
Director,) Larry Wells said that
after two days of studying the
problem, "we have no concrete
answer other than there was just
too much water falling in too
short a time for the drainage
system to carry it off". Wells said
there were no injuries caused by
the flood and only one street
washed out. "The one street
washed out was a dirt street-Oak
Street-which was cut in several
places by water coming out of the
woods and washing over the
Wells said apparently most of
the culverts were open, as water
could be seen boiling up from the
down-stream side of the flow of
the water.
Heavy rains cut Highway 98
near the Gulf Aire Subdivision
entrance, causing traffic to be
detoured through the subdivision
until DOT could make repairs.
The culvert, a five foot
concrete pipe under the highway,
was the main drainage device for
the Gulf Aire area. The pipe was
washed out on the down stream
side and earth under the highway
was eroded nearly a third of the
way under the pavement, causing
the highway to hang in the air
The entrance to Gulf Aire had
some erosion damage, also, but
DOT maintenance people put
filler into the eroded area before
it cut under the paving.
Wells said there may have
been more than three homes
which were flooded in the deluge,
but that officials had knowledge
of three which had up to 12 inches
of water inside. "The thing which
really has them disturbed is that
neither one of the flooded homes
had flood insurance. It was a
major disaster for these folks",
Wells reported. He said one of .the
homes had two invalids inside,
who had to be moved out to a safe
Sheriff Al Harrison said his
people stood guard over the

culverts until the water subsided.
"The kids in the area didn't
realize how dangerous these
culverts were. They were all
running to capacity even though
they were inundated in water and
created a powerful suction. They
could have easily drowned any
kid who- got caught in the
suction", Harrison said.
While the precipitation at St.
Joe Beach is only an estimate, the

rainfall here in Port St. Joe was
measured. According to Mrs.'
Emily Simmons, who maintains a
rain gauge on McClellan Avenue,
2.3 inches fell through Tuesday
At the Wastewater Treatment
Plant, the gauge showed a
reading of 2.6 inches.
In Mexico Beach, just west of
St. Joe Beach, the reading on a
gauge maintained by Pat Bowen
was six inches.

This huge five foot concrete culvert under Highway
98, was damaged and undermined by the large amount
of water'drained from the'Gulf Aire subdivision area
Monday. Sections of the drain,'pipe and the concrete
headwall for the culvert can be seen. lying in the

eyen though the reading in Port

Tax Payers In

City Will See

Reduction In 88

Millage Rate Reduced

by A Quarter Mill

The City Commission received its
millage levy statement from the Gulf
County Property Appraiser this week,
showing the Commission could give
its tax payers a millage cut for fiscal
The report shows the City has
$157,415,884 in taxable property, both
real and personal. The report shows
there is $1,031,684 in new taxable
values on the rolls this year which
have been introduced into the City
during the past year. These additions
are from new construction, additions,
or annexations and take deletions (or
losses) into consideration.
Of course, much of the addition
comes from the annexation of Ward
Ridge into the city limits.
According to the report, which
stipulates the highest millage the city
can levy without public notices or
public hearings, has been established
at 5.388. The millage rate which was
levied last fiscal year was 5.634.
The Commission may reduce this
levy without the legal requirements,
but they cannot raise it without
sending a first class mail notice to
each and every tax payer advising
them of the intentions to increase.
The Commission has until the
middle of September to finalize their
Ad valorem taxes brought some
$843,370 last year. The current year
proposed millage rate of 5.388 is
expected to collect $848,157 in fiscal
All the City Commission did
Tuesday night was spend money.
In a long session, the Commission
took bids on two garbage packer
loaders, two pick-up trucks and five
expensive valves for the Wastewater
Treatment Plant and a lawn mower.
And every item had a host of
bidders, trying for the business.
None of the bids were finalized,
but were taken for study of terms,
specifications, delivery dates, etc., to
determine the best and cheapest bid
Five firms bid on the two garbage
packers, with the City suddenly
placed in an emergency situation with
the motor of one of the present
packers having blown up Tuesday
afternoon. None of the prospective
suppliers could deliver a new piece of
equipment in less than 90 to 120 days.
The bids ranged from $55,252 to
$57,635 for each of the packers. Since
the City had also asked for lease
purchase agreements, terms could
enter into deciding who gets the
Four firms bid on supplying a full
size half ton pick-up truck; four
wanted to sell the city a compact
pick-up and five companies wanted to
supply some $24,000 worth of valves.
With all that time spent spending
money, the Commission had very
little time left to do anything except
hear a report from Rev. Ennis Sellers
of the Beautification Committee, who
made some suggestions on things the
Commission could do to support their
activities and maintain the increasing

cleanliness of the city.
"There a lot of people beginning
to support this thing now", Sellers
said. "We're getting help and support
from all over. We just need to get
people programmed into keeping the
city clean once the task is finished.
Maintaining cleanliness is a job that's
never finished", Sellers said.
Sellers advised the Commission
that most down-town merchants were
cooperating in the clean up campaign.
"I see some paint going on buildings
and some cleaning up the rear of their
places which can be seen from
Highway 98. Some are doing a good
job while a few still haven't gotten
with the program".
Sellers also expressed special
recognition to St. Joe Paper Com-
pany, the City employees, public
works director, Martin Adkison and
Commissioner Emily Roche for their
efforts over the past month in
correcting several eye-sores.

Cong. Nelson


At Noon
U.S. Congressman Bill Nelson will
be in Port St. Joe today, speaking to a
combined gathering of the Kiwanis,
Lions and Rotary clubs and business
leaders throughout the area at a
dinner meeting in the St. Joseph Bay
Country Club.
Nelson, a Congressman from
Melbourne, is known nationally as the
only U.S. Congressman who has
traveled in space in the space shuttle
Congressman Nelson is currently
a member of the Science, Space and
Technology committee of the Con-
gress and is heavily involved in the
nation's space program.
The luncheon program will begin
today at noon.

You could say these vehicles are "flooded out", as they were two of
scores of autos which were caught by rising waters Monday. This kind of
damage was common in the St. Joe Beach area as an estimated six to
eight inches of rainfall fell in a five hour period.

Wading water became a normal activity for many homeowners in St.
Joe Beach Monday when day-long torrential rains flooded several
streets for about a mile just a block off Highway 98. The water still had
not fully subsided Tuesday afternoon.

State Starting Dog

Fly Spray Program
The Entomology program of the Florida Department of Health and
Rehabilitative Services, in cooperation with the county mosquito control
districts, will again this summer operate an aerial spraying program for
control of dog flies on Gulf beaches and bay shores in the West Florida
area. Airplanes being used in the program will be flown parallel to and a
short distance behind the beaches.
All aircraft are properly licensed and operated in compliance with
rules and regulations of the Federal Aviation Administration. There is no
danger to persons or property by the spray being applied.
Dog flies become concentrated on the beaches when north winds
bring them from breeding sites in agricultural areas to the north and
occasionally from piles of seaweed along bayshores. The flies are known
to fly over 100 miles. They leave the beaches and plague homeowners
when the wind blows from the Gulf; therefore, to be effective the spray
must be applied quickly while the flies are concentrated on the beaches.
This is a safe program which offers effective control of this important
pest in the West Florida area.
Questions regarding the program should be addressed to Dog Fly
Control, 3920 Frankford Avenue, Panama City, Florida 32405. Phone

Christ Movie Is

All Fiction

The controversy over the as yet unreleased movie, "The
Last Temptations of Christ" is in all the newspapers and news
magazines these days. Almost all of the publicity is unfavorable
to the story shown in the film which is a fictional account of how
Jesus Christ COULD have been tempted by the devil in his last
The important words in the paragraph above are "fiction"
and "could have been".
We suppose anything "could have been" pertaining to the
life of Christ, but we feel and believe that had anything of any
real importance happened-anything which may have had an
impact on the future of Christianity-it would have been in the
The Bible didn't back down from showing the warts and
moles on any of God's chosen ones throughout the period
covered by the Bible. He revealed David as an adulturer and
murderer, Saul as an egomaniac and murderer and Solomon as
a lustful man as well as eventually a foolish man; even with all
his wisdom. It reveals Moses as a man who could not speak to
crowds and even though he was the reluctant leader for 40 years
of the nation of Israel, when it came to making the decision
which really counted, he couldn't make up his mind.
There are many other instances in the Bible in which God's
chosen people reverted to weak human beings during some
time in their lives.
But never Jesus Christ.
If any Christian can accept the fact that Jesus Christ could
have succumbed to the wiles of women, or anything else, he
should examine his own faith.
So, the movie-which we have not seen, nor plan to see-not
only contains a lot of "fiction" about Jesus Christ, but also
contains more than a little blasphemy, if what we read about it
The only good the movie has done or will do, apparently, is
to spread the word about the world, to those who might not
otherwise read the Bible, that there are millions of people who
believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and cannot sin. This
position put him in position to be able to die for our sins as the
Bible says.
Considering-the Bible's candor about its subjects, we find it
impossible to believe that anything about the movie can be
identified as even a faint probability.

Where's the Cash?

The only words you have ever seen in this newspaper about
Florida's plunge into infamy-its lottery-have been that we
emphatically do not approve of our state raising money in such
a manner. And to do it in the name of financing the schools asa
matter of white-washing an otherwise tainted activity is the
epitome of hypocrisy, in our opinion.
One will never read in The Star where we condone the
lottery. As a matter of fact, one will never read in The Star
some of the publicity pounded out by the division of lottery in
our state capital. If Joe Jones on Baltzell Avenue wins $10
million dollars, he will have to tell you about it. You will not
read about it in The Star.
We still believe the lottery and its wedding to the school
system was the biggest sham ever put over on the gullible
people of Florida,.and after six months or so of its operation, we
continue to see it as nothing more than a vehicle to siphon off a
sizeable share of our gross product here in the state.
Gulf County's schools, at least, did not receive enough new
money from the lottery to buy enough water to lick the stamp on
an envelope, figuratively speaking.
Questioning our Superintendent about money matters
during the past few weeks, we asked if any of the $500,000 new
dollars in the school budget this year came from the lottery
proceeds. "No, we had very little money to come from the
lottery", he said.
People, we have been had again!


Hunker Down with Kes

Is Elvis Still Among Us?

Did you see that guest on Larry
King Live last week talking about
Elvis? It seems there is a group of
folks that think E.P. is still with us. He
faked his death so, as they say, he
could get a little peace and quiet. I
didn't catch much of the show but
apparently there have been some
"Elvis sightings" reported by
members of this group. Someone said
they saw him on a motorcycle up in
Canada. Another lady "sighted" him
pulling out of a Dairy Bar in a 1958
Cadillac in Waco, Texas. And, as you
know, a lot of people have pointed out
there are several rooms you don't get
to see when you take that tour through
Just this past weekend they
played a pre-season professional foot-
ball game in Memphis. One of the
coaches left a ticket at the gate for
Elvis. I thoguht that was stretching it
a bit. Of course I stayed up through
Sportscenter to see if anyone picked
that ticket up. And just recently it has
been reported that no one can seem to
find Elvis's death certificate.
Strange circumstances and lots of

hullabaloo for sure. But Elvis, since
he roared out of those Sun recording
sessions in Memphis in the mid 1950's,
has been surrounded by strange cir-
cumstances and lots of hullabaloo.
I was almost a part of that com-
motion one time. A long time before
he became an international household
world even before he went into the
Army he stopped off in our little
town. He and a couple of guys wheeled
into the Dixie Coffee Cup for supper.
In fifteen minutes everybody in town
was at the Dixie Coffee Cup saying
hello to Doyle kind'a casual like just
as if they showed up every night right
at this time. Can you imagine trying
to eat a bowl of chili with everyone in
town staring at every bite? As he is
leaving the good town folks are saying
goodbye with, "Hey, Elvis, don't be
cruel" and "You ain't nothing but a
hound dog." Nice exit.
I missed that "sighting" of Elvis
'cause my Mother wouldn't take me
out to the Coffee Cup. She wasn't too
keen on that rock and roll stuff. Now,
we didn't wear much pink and black
but we kept up and we knew all the

songs. When Billie Jean called and
told me that after three weeks she
realized I wasn't the man of her
dreams and it was over and I could
drop dead (click), I turned around,
phone still in hand, and there stood
Leon and Jackie. They had their hair
combed back and slicked down, col-
lars turned up, hips gyrating and were
singing ". just talk a walk down
Lonely Street to Heartbreak Hotel."
I haven't seen Elvis lately. But
then, I haven't been looking for him. I
think that most of those people who
have "sighted" E.P. spend a great
deal of time trying to "sight" him. I
know for sure there's a large con-
tingency in Tupelo, Mississippi who
swear that he is alive.
I called my Aunt Thelma out in
Portland. She's the one that's got all
those kids. Now, Thelma is her real
name but most folks out there call her
Sister Carlota. She can look at your
hand and tell you who you're going to
marry. She also sits around that table,
turns out the lights and talks to folks
that are no longer with us. I loved to
visit Aunt Thelma there were plen-


ty of children to play with and I got to
light all those candles.
I asked Sister Carlota about
Elvis. If anybody would know, she
would. She said she couldn't get in
touch with him because he was still
with us. Son of a gun. There may be
something to this after all. She allow-
ed as how no one on the other side had
seen him. I was going to start looking
around wthe old Dairy Bar.
On a whim before I hung up I ask-
ed her about Adolph Hiter. "Oh, he is
alive and living in Brazil."
I didn't know that. I mentioned J.
Edgar Hoover. "Yes, he's still with
us, he's just gone undercover." I was
I wondered about Amelia:
Earhart. "Oh, goodness, she landed

Class Reunions Place An Emphasis On How Things Were

I'M NOT REALLY lazy this week.
That is, I'm not any lazier than usual
this week, it's just that the column this
week was a piece handed me by a
loyely local lady as being as up-to-
date as the dateline at the top of this
This is the season when all the
kids are going back to school,
naturally, but it's also the time of the
year when the class reunions have
just been held and most who attended
are still reminiscing about who they
saw and what they looked like after all
these years have passed.
Like everything else, reunions
today are not like reunions of years
gone by. The years we are remember-
ing at these reunions are nothing like
today is, either. There is a vast
difference and young folks today think
that difference is funny. Most will

never believe things were like they
were in a year gone by.
Actually, some of the youth of
today could use a good stiff dose of
yesterday to mellow them for the
today. It would give them respect,
mostly, for others around them.
Anyhow, let me share with you
this piece written by a person who has
attended a high school reunion and
remembers another day.

"REUNIONS CAN BE a competi-
tive sport. At early reunions, we
compete with each other about jobs
and incomes. At the 25th, it's spouses
and children. After that we brag about
grandchildren and vacation homes,
while we regard with glee or envy the
waistlines, hairlines and wrinkles.
"It is said there are three
ages-youth, middle age and "you
haven't changed a bit", but change is
the name of the game. Consider: the

graduates of the classes of the 30's
were before the pill and the population
explosion that went hand in hand.,
"We were before TV, penicillin,
polio shots, antibiotics, frisbees, fro-
zen food, nylon, dacron, Xerox',
Kinsey. We were before radar,
fluorescent lights, credit cards and
ball point pens. For us, timesharing
meant togetherness, not computers; a
chip meant a piece of wood; hardware
was hardware and software wasn't
even a word.

"AT COLLEGE, students were
before jeans. We were before panty-
hose and drip dry clothes. We were
before icemakers, dishwashers,
clothes driers, freezers and electric
blankets. We were before the students
held cocktail parties on campus,
before the opposite sex was allowed
above the first floor. We were before
Alaska and Hawaii became states;

before men wore long hair and
.earrings and women wore tuxedos.
We got married first and then lived
together how quaint can we be??
"In those days bunnies were
small rabbits and rabbits were not
Volkswagens. We wore saddle shoes
and peter pan collars and thought
deep cleavage was something the
butcher did.
"When we were in school, pizzas,
frozen orange juice, instant coffee and
McDonald's were unheard of. We
thought fast food was what one ate
during Lent. The term "making out"
referred to how you did on the exam.

"IN OUR DAY cigarette smoking
was fashionable, grass was mowed,
Coke was something one drank and
pot was used for cooking in. we were
before daycare centers, house-
husbands, baby-sitters, computer dat-
ing, dual careers and computer

"There were 5 and 10 cent stores
where you could buy things for 5 and
10 cents. For a nickel you could make
a phone call, buy a Coke, an ice cream
cone, stamps for one letter and two
post cards. A new Chevy coupe was
$659 but then who could afford one? A
pity, too, because gas was 11 cents a
BMW, ERA, would have been alpha-
bet soup. We were so dumb as to think
you needed a husband to have a baby.
"We were before air travel went
commercial, before a man on the
moon, space ships and astronauts,
before India, Pakistan, Indonesia, the
Philippines and Iceland were inde-
pendent countries. Since our gradua-
tion, 92 countries-48 of them African
-have become independent.
"No matter what the 30s' were,
they made a good decade!"

that bit of the past. I know I did.
Even though the 30's were all the
author of this piece said they were,
I'll just tough it out in the 80's, where
almost everyone has 50 cents in his
pocket to buy that Coke with; has $659
in the bank for that car (although the
remaining $10,000 will have to be
made on the installment plan) and we
can buy a pill for 50 cents which will
control an infection in our body,
rather than send us to a hospital for a
month at the time.
I miss the old liquid ink fountain
pen, but it is a welcome convenience
to be able to have a plentiful supply of
fresh ice and conditioned air, no
matter what the season.
Now, if we could just get rid of the
dope, the crime and make "family" a
unit rather than the inhabitants of a
small motel each night, we would
have it made!

Some Tips on College Living
WELL, SON, BY NOW you are settled in your plush apartment and
getting ready for your first year in college. I want to wish you the very
best because you left in such a rush that I didn't get to say good luck or
goodbye. You also forgot to sign the bank cards for your checking account
so don't cash any checks until we can get them to you.
We certainly hope your apartment is comfortable. You know how we
worry about your being comfortable. I hope you found one with a
swimming pool like you wanted.
How is your new truck running? I'll say one thing; you sure have good
taste when it comes to picking out a vehicle. Gosh, I've always dreamed
of owning a truck like that. Maybe one day I'll be able to afford one.
Are you sure the two credit cards are enough? Remember the
- American Express has unlimited credit, so take it as easy on us as you
can. If the expense gets too much maybe we can borrow one or two from
Uncle'Rudy or Aunt Melba. They always talk fondly of you.
GEE, I HOPE THINGS work out the way you have planned. It doesn't
matter that we've had to mortgage the farm and the tractor; we just want
you to be comfortable and relaxed during your college years.
In the event, however, .that we are flat broke by your second
semester, let me give you some tips on how to survive the way I did when
I was in your situation a few years ago. You might consider taping this
list to your bathroom mirror so you can review it each morning while you
are preparing for another day in the old college jungle.
.. Here they are:
-Use human gas. God gave you two legs and two feet to walk with
and run on. It's surprising how well they will serve you when your new
- truck is out of gas and you don't have the funds to buy more. I've never
heard of anyone- dying from walking to class..
-Air conditioning is nice during the hot summer days. You may find
out how refreshing and cool a breeze can be shortly after you receive your
first light bill. Horse feathers, we didn't even have a fan when I was in the
dormitory and I lived through it. Hard to believe, isn't it?
-Watch your diet. Sure, it's good to eat pizza and burgers every day,
and a seafood platter or a nice, big steak two or three times a week. If you
ever get real good and hungry you may find that pork n' beans and a
bologna sandwich is awfully good and filling. You can pretend they are a
big steak when you have spent all your money on "junk't food and beer.
-Toothpaste and toilet tissue may disappear. You may be surprised
at the amount of toothpaste there is in a flat tube. I once brushed my teeth
for two weeks on an "empty" tube. And, whatever you do, don't throw
away newspapers.
-Laundry is another thing. When you've worn everything in your
suitcase and don't have the money to wash it or, heaven forbid, take it to
the laundry, turn your socks inside out. You can do the same thing with
undershirts. Underwear can be worn indefinitely, or, if your jeans don't
have holes in them, you can go without. It may be a little rough at first,
but you'll get used to it.
-Pretend you are flat broke, because most of the time you will be. If
you are fortunate you will learn that college can be the best years of your
life on less money than you will ever have.
AFTER ALL, what is college for? You go to learn and learn you

Senate Candidate Kirk Swings Through Gulf
Ex-Governor Claude Kirk, who is currently running for the U.S. Senate
from Florida to replace a retiring Lawton Chiles, took a campaign swing
through Port St. Joe Tuesday morning, visiting some of his campaign workers
from his days as Governor.
Kirk was also dispensing with a little political talk about the up-coming
Senate race and collecting "dollars for decency" to help finance his campaign.
"'Lawton walked through the entire state to publicize his campaign and I am
accepting no more than one dollar from anyone-dollars for decency-in
mine", he said as he held out a plastic sack containing many already-collected
dollar bills.
Kirk said he is a registered Democrat now-he was a Republican in his
days as Governor-but said he was an arch conservative Democrat. "When I
get to Washington, I will vote the conservative philosophy", he said.
While in Port St. Joe he collected a dollar for decency from The Star editor,
who was a worker in his gubernatorial campaign and watered his canine
Labrador "person", described as the best hunting dog in the world.
Kirk was making his swing through the Panhandle in a pick-up truck,
dressed in blue jeans and a wide-brim hat, along with his canine friend.

State NFIB

Says Barron

Is "Guardian"
The state's largest small-business
advocacy organization today present-
ed Dean of the Senate Dempsey
Barron with its "Guardian of Small
Business" Award.
In a ceremony at the Fort Walton
Beach Chamber of Commerce, local
members of the National Federation
of Independent Business Florida
gave Barron the award "in recogni-
tion of his outstanding voting record
and legislative leadership on small
business issues."
During the 1987-88 legislative
biennium, Barron earned a 100
percent rating from the group, voting
consistently in support of positions
voiced by the majority of NFIB -
Florida's more than 16,000 members
on key small-business issues. The
votes used in compiling the NFIB -
Florida ratings ranged from repeal-
ing the sales tax on services, to
toughening bad-debt collection laws,
to worker's compensation and unem-
ployment compensation reforms.
Bonnie Hamm, director of NFIB -
Florida, said that, while numerous
other legislators had matched Bar-
ron's voting record over the last
session, "his willingness to take the
lead in championing small-business
concerns not only this session, but
throughout his 28-year career in the
Senate is unsurpassed."
Hamm noted that in previous
sessions, Barron had been "a moving
force behind major legislative victor-
ies for small-business owners."

How to Outsmart A Pesky Mole

(It Isn't Easy, but You Can with A Little Planning)

by Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Director
We all know that moles live in
holes or burrows, to 'be more
accurate. But, how much do you know
about the tenacious tunnelers? If you
notice a maze of rounded ridges
extending across your landscape,
chances are a mole has decided to
take up residence.
Several kinds of burrowing ani-
mals are found in Florida. But, moles
generally are the most annoying.
They often cause considerable dam-
age' to home landscapes, as well as
commercial areas, such as golf
courses and farms. My information on
moles was provided in part by Dr.
Robert J. Black, Horticulture Special-
ist of the University of Florida's
Institute of Food and Agricultural
I Moles live so completely under-
ground that they are seldom seen. The
mole is relatively small measuring


about five or six inches from the tip of
its long flexible nose to the end of its

short tail. Its body is covered with
brownish plush-like fur. Having no
external eyes or ears, the mole
apparently is guided by sensations of
touch and smell. A mole moves
through the soil with a breast stroke
action, reaching ahead and pulling the
earth back and to the sides. This
action also forces the surface soil
upward, making the familiar ridges
tL.t trace its progress.
If you observe a large number of
burrows in your lawn or garden, its
natural to assume that many moles
are present. Actually, a single mole
could be responsible. The mole is a
very active animal. It requires a large
amount of food, often consuming an
amount equal to its body weight in a
single day.
Moles often are blamed for eating
root crops, such as sweet potatoes,
carrots and peanuts. However, the
real culprits usually are pocket
gophers, cotton rots, or mice. Earth-
worms and insects constitute the bulk
of a mole's diet. If the mole's menu
were the only consideration, it un-
doubtedly would be considered a
beneficial animal, because it eats
many harmful pests, Unfortunately,
in searching for food, moles damage
lawns and gardens by uprooting small
plants, breaking the roots of others,
and loosening the soil around larger
plants, causing them to suffer a
severe lack of moisture.

Trapping, which is the most
satisfactory method of mole control.
requires some care and planning. If
any portion of a trap is exposed in a
moles runway, the mole will detect it
and back away. On the other hand
moles aren't disturbed by soil block-
ing their runway. So. burying your
trap in a runway completely sur-
rounding it with soil is the key to'
successful trapping.
Trap placement is also important.
Many burrows made during the
searchfor f ood are never used again.
To find a burrow that is consistently
traveled, cave in short sections of all
visible runways, and check each day
to see which ones the mole reopens.
After repeating this process for two or
three days, you should be ready to set
traps. Be sure to carefully follow all of
the manufacturer's directions for trap
If a trap fails, to produce within
two days, it probably means the mole
has changed its habits, or the runway
may have been disturbed too much or
the trap may have been set improper-
ly. In any case, a nonproductive trap
should be moved to a new location
after a reasonable wait.
You may hear about other me-
thods of mole control poison baits,
gas, and flooding. Unfortunately,
these are' not effective. Your best bet
.is trapping.

Not As We Do


WII = by John Sloan
"Few things are harder to put up with than the annoyance
of a good example," said Mark Twain. Today, employers
disagree. Hemmed in by regulations and mandates, business
would like members of Congress to "set the example" by
practicing what they enact.
Congress employs 38,000'people, yet members do not pay
Social Security or unemployment compensation taxes. Law-
makers needn't worry about the OSHA inspector or trouble

with the minimum wage or overtime requirements; they're
exempt from those laws, too.
Federal legislators even have exempted themselves from
laws that guarantee basic American civil and employment
rights: the Civil Rights Act and the Equal Employment Oppor-
tunity Act.
Congress passed these measures in the name of protecting
American workers, but in reality. business is stuck with labor
laws that mandate terms that neither employer nor employee
Can an employee work half a day on Saturday in exchange
for extra vacation time? Not under the Fair Labor Standards
Act. Yet members of the U.S. Congress arrange any work
schedule they choose fi their employees.
Congress applied the same double standard to address the
rising cost of Social Security taxes. When the trust fund was
nearly broke. Congress moved to mandate early tax increases
through 1990. To show their commitment to the system's

solvency members of Congress should have signed on to pay
their fair share. They haven't so far.
Small-business o owners want Congress to live by its own
examples. In a recent National Federation of Independent
Business poll, they voted two to one to require Congress to
comply with federal labor laws.
Congress pleads separation of powers to justify the exemp-
tions. The administration via federal agencies could harass
legislators. Sw allowing that rationale is tough for business
owners. who must pass inspections and audits.
It's not separation of pow ers that motivates these exemp-
tions. It's flexibility in the work place. Lawmakers provide
themselves with the flexibility, that business calls for because
it fosters an innovative, productive work environment.
The 100th Congress. itching to legislate new benefits. has
heard the problems that working parents face in coping within
the birth or illness of a child. These pleas hase prompted

many politicians to suggest that employers provide parental
Here is a suggestion to members of Congress: Before you
place another requirement on employers, try conforming to
the laws you and your predecessors have enacted--the hun-
dreds of regulations business owners live with everyday!
Then. if you still want to impose another mandate, try parental
leave for three years on your staffs and report back to the
business community on how well it works.
Congress is an employer just like any other. If all other
U.S. workers should have the protections enacted over the
Nears, so should thousands of people on the congressional

GCCC President Sees A Growing Future

Bob McSpadden, newly appointed
president of Gulf Coast Community
College, spoke to the Rotary Club
Thursday, telling of some of his hopes
and aspirations for the college in the
coming year.
McSpadden said his main concern
is to provide a quality college
education to the 6,000-odd students
who attend the institution every year
on both a full and part-time basis.
One of the most exciting areas of
growth in the immediate future is a




new 80,000 square foot addition to
house student services and similar
activities. "We'll be spending $1.2
million in construction of a new
administration building, as well as the
normal growth construction which is
accomplished almost every year."
The college president said the
rate of students from Bay, Gulf and
Franklin counties attending college is
lower than other portions of the state.
"We are going to try and remedy that
problem", he said. One of the ways to

increase the number of students
attending upper class work is an
endowment program being underta-
ken by the school. The program will
actively recruit donors willing to
place $6.000 in a scholarship program.
The contributions will be matched
with other money, providing a huge
scholarship fund to finance students
who wish to go to college.
"We're also trying to establish an
east campus in the Parker area to
make it more convenient for our many

Kiwanis Hears

of Church's

New Service

Rev. William Smith, pastor of the
White City Baptist Church, spoke to
the Kiwanis Club Tuesday, telling the
club of a public service venture the
church has entered into.
Rev. Smith said the church
received a grant from the Jesse Ball
duPont Foundation to furnish a social
service need in their area for senior
citizens. "We had no idea what we
would do when we first applied for the
grant", Smith said, "Then things just
started falling into place for us to
provide this service for our senior
citizens and we adopted it".
Smith said the White City area
alone doesn't have enough senior
citizens needing help to operate a
full-blown center of services, but they
have expanded their service area to
also include the Howard Creek area
and have now found themselves filling
a vital need of serving hot meals at
noon time, providing recreation and
socializing for their elderly clients in a
comfortable setting.
"All of this was made possible by
the Foundation grant", Smith said.
"A church has to be willing to perform
a needed social service to become
eligible". Rev. Smith said his church
was the first in the area to take
advantage of'this opportunity to serve
but he hopes they won't be the last.
The pastor said the church is also
committed to improving their service
by providing transportation for those
not able to drive themselves and help
the aged with their necessities in any
way they can.
"We have an experienced person
managing our program in Sandra
Balew and we have the cooperation
and advice of the Gulf County Senior
Citizens organization. We feel we are
filling a definite need in our county".

The Board of County Commis-
sioners of Gulf County, Florida met
June 28, 1988 in special workshop
session with the following members
present: Chairman Douglas C. Bir-
mingham and Commissioners Billy
Branch, Eldridge Money, Nathan
Peters, Jr., and A.B. Traylor. Others
present were: Attorney William J.
Rish, Civil Defense Director Admin-
istrative Assistant Larry Wells, Clerk
Benny C. Lister, Deputy Clerk Towan
Collier, Mosquito Control Director
Sam Graves, Jr., and Building
Inspector DeWayne Manuel.
The meeting came to order at 6:30
Civil Defense Director Wells
opened the meeting with prayer, and
led the Pledge of Allegiance to the
Birmingham thanked everyone
for attended and stated that the
purpose of this workshop is to discuss
some of the facets of the Emergency
Preparedness System, i.e. who is
responsible for what and when, during
an emergency situation. He then
requested Civil Defense Director
Wells discuss the procedures.
Wells also thanked the Disaster
Advisory Council members for attend-
ing. He discussed that part of the
reason for this meeting is to address
an organizational structure, and to
further inform the Board of .County
Commissioners concerning ruling au-
thority and jurisdiction according to
the public law. He presented copies of
the Gulf County Peacetime Emergen-
cy Plan to the Board, and stated that it
is in update at this time. He then
referred to a chart on page 7 that
shows the chain of command in the
County during a state of local
emergency. He described the chain of
command as follows: (1) the direction
and control is the responsibility of the
Board of County Commissioner, (2)
the Mayors and City Commissioners
are next,. (3) then comes the Civil
Defense Office, (4) warning is the
responsibility of the Sheriff and Law
Enforcement, and (5) is the Public
Information Help, etc.: He then
discussed page 8, which lists the
authorities that grant power to the
Federal, State, and County govern-
ments (U.S. Public Law 93-288, F.S.
Section 252, Executive Order no. 80-29,
State of Florida Peacetime Plan, Gulf
County Resolution adopted 6-9-70, and
the Statement of Understanding be-
tween the Florida Department of
Commurity Affairs and the American
National Red Cross), He stated that
Attorney Rish would.discuss the laws
in more detail. He further discussed
that pages 43-65 reflect the hurricane
evacuation portion of the plan, and
stated that it designated shelters,
evacuation routes, and those who will
be called upon during the emergency.
Civil Defense Director Wells briefly
discussed the following probable
chain of events during a hurricane:
(1) the Governor would release an
executive order or a proclamation of a
state of disaster, (2) the Civil Defense
Director would notify the Chairman of
the Board of County Commissioners,
(3) the Chairman would call a special
Board meeting (the Disaster Advisory
Council would be invited .and would
become involved at this point), (4) the
Board would issue 'an evacuation
notice for designated areas according
to zones, and (5) the Sheriff's
Department would be called upon to
carry out the evacuation and warning
Rish reported he has researched
the authority of various people, as
requested by the Board. He then read.
a letter he wrote to the Board,
concerning who is responsible for
declaring emergencies and carrying
out the overall plans, and he read F.S.
252.38, which was attached. He said
that if a state of emergency exists and
is declared, the Board of County
Commissioners can do almost any-
thing they need to for a period of 7
days. He then reported that the Board'
declares an emergency in Gulf
County, and the Sheriff helps to carry
out the, instructions.
Birmingham reported that we are
expected to have a very active
hurricane season, and we need to get
all questions answered now. Wells
reported that he would make copies of
the Peacetime Emergency Plan avail-
able to those that want them. Upon
inuqiry by Birmingham, Wells stated
that the County is responsible for an
overall emergency plan, then it is the
duty of each separate agency (such as
the nursing home or the hospital) to
adopt their own standard operating
procedure. He said the council will be
glad to assist them in developing a
procedure, but neither the County nor
the State tells them what to do. He
requested that the members of the
Disaster Advisory Council fill out a
form, before they leave, with their
proper name and address. Birming-
ham discussed that the Board will
contact members of the Disaster
Advirosy Council before declaring an
emergency and ordering evacuation,
to allow them to give their opinions.
He stated that if any members of the
Council have any questions, they can
contact him or Civil Defense Director
There being no further business,
the meeting did then adjourn.
The Board of County Commis-
sioners of Gulf County, Florida met
June 28, 1988 in regular session with
the following members present:
Chairman Douglas C. Birmingham
and Commissioners Billy Branch,
Eldridge Money, Nathan Peters, Jr.,
and A.B. Traylor. Others present
were: Attorney William J. Rish,
Admin. Asst. Civil Defense Director

Larry Wells, Clerk Benny C. Lister,
Deputy Clerk Towan Collier, Mosquito
Control Director Sam Graves, Jr.,
Road Superintendent Bob Lester, and
Building Inspector DeWayne Manuel.
The meeting came to order at 7:00
Wells opened the meeting with
prayer and led the Pledge of Alle-
giance to the flag.
Upon motion by Money, second by
Branch, and unanimous vote, the

Gulf County Commission

Board approved the minutes of June
14, 1988.
Houston Whitfield, of the Wewa-
hitchka Volunteer Ambulance Ser-
vice, appeared before the Board to
request they pay for the repair of an
old generator, that could be used in
the event of a power loss, because
their radio system is power-operated.
He stated that an estimate was
received a few years ago, in the
amount of $250.00, for a new transfer
switch. Upon inquiry by Birmingham,
Whitfield stated that the repeater
works off of the power system and a
telephone patch, and that the Florida
Game and Fish Commission would
benefit from the generator as well.
Birmingham stated he does not know
who owns the generator, but the
Wewahitchka Ambulance Service is
requesting the Board have it repaired.
After discussion that it is the transfer
switch that is broken. Traylor moved
the Board have it repaired. Money
seconded the motion. Branch discus-
sed the possibility of looking into the
purchase of a. surplus generator and
comparing it to the cost of repairing
the old one. Whitfield stated that the
generator itself worked when the
transfer switch was struck by lighten-
ing a few years ago. Upon inquiry by
Birmingham, Lester reported he
could have one of his mechanics take
a look at the generator. Money
discussed the need to include the
purchase of a surge protector in the
motion. The Board had no objection.
Upon vote, the motion passed unani-
mously. After discussion about the
price of a transfer switch, Birming-
ham requested Whitfield get three
quotes and bring them back before
e Board if they are over $250.00.
Birmingham announced that a
public hearing Will be held at this
time, to consider vacating the plat of
Surfside Estates, Unit no. 2. Attorney
J. Patrick Floyd reported that he has
obtained the Certificate of Taxes since
the last meeting, and stated that they
are not certain exactly how far Beach
Avenue runs. Money stated he was
concerned about the road going all the
way to the Gulf, so there will be beach
access for the property-owners. Floyd
stated that on the plat, there is a piece
of property at the end of Beach Ave.
that is labeled "reserved for use of
owners and occupants of land platted
hereon." After further discussion
about beach access at the end of
Beahc Ave., Rish stated that the
resolution would include vacating the
plat with the exception of Beach Ave.
and the dedication of access; provided
for from Beach. Ave. to Gulf Drive to
the Gulf of Mexico, as provided, in the
original plat. Peters moved the Board
vacate the plat of Surfside Estates,
Unit no. 2, with the exception of Beach
Ave. and that portion of land
extending down to the Gulf of Mexico.
Money seconded the motion, and it
passed unanimously.
Ella Brown, of Baskerville-Dono-
van Engineers, appeared before the
Board to present the proposal for the
closure plan on Buckhorn Landfill to
the Board. She reported that she also
has a copy of the solid waste bill that
was recently passed in the legislature,
and a summary of the bill, which she
will leave with Wells. She stated that
per the Board's request they have
prepared a proposal for the closure
plan, and a revised contour plan for
the Buckhorn Landfill, which includes
engineering and survey work that is
required. She also stated that prepar-
ation' of the groundwater monitoring
plan is not included because .it has
been completed and approved per her
conversation with the Department of
Environmental Regulation. She re-
ported that if they are given authority
to proceed, they will meet the 10-01-88
deadline, as set out in the consent
order. She ,discussed the scope of
services for the closure plan, and
stated that it will be done according to
all regulations and requirements.
Upon inquiry by Clerk Lister, Ms.
Brown stated their cost estimate is
$34,000.00, and she also stated that this
includes all engineering and, survey-
ing costs. She reported that she does
not anticipate that the Board will need
any soil work, but if they do it will be
included in the proposal price. Branch
moved the Board table the proposal
until the next meeting, to give them
time to study it. Traylor seconded the
motion, and it passed unanimously.
Birmingham requested the commis-
sioners let Wells know if they have
any questions for Ms. Brown, so she
will not have to make an unnecessary
trip if there are none. Ms. Brown
requested the Board keep the inform-
ation proprietary, stating she laid out
everything in the scope of services as
to what they would do. Birmingham
also reminded the Board that through
the Consent Order, they agreed to
submit a closure plan by 10-01-88.
Wells discussed a letter from
Property Appraiser Kesley Colbert,
requesting the Board allow him to use
the vacated Driver's License Office as
his map room. Upon motion by
Branch, second by Money, and
unanimous vote, the Board granted
the Property Appraiser's request.
Birmingham directed Wells to write
to Colbert, notifying him of the
Board's decision.
Wells discussed a letter from
Ralph Clark, of the Department of
Natural Resources, and stated that
Clark has been attempting to help us
get permission to rebuild the road at
the Coast Guard Station. He reported
that they would not grant that
permission, but they did express a
feeling of no objection to the public

using the existing road. He stated the
many people have been concerned
about this, and he also stated that he
has given the Sheriff a copy of the
letter, as it directly affects his
Wells discussed a letter from the
Department of Commerce, concern-
ing the Daniels' Road money and the
United Technologies, Inc. project. He
stated that we have attempted to
apply for an extension, but since the
Department has not received a letter
from United Technologies, Inc., stat-
ing the Company is coming to Gulf

County, they are requesting the Board
return the money and the interest
earned. Wells reported that the
Department of Commerce stated they
would be glad to work with us on
another project, but even if there were
some other company coming in, this
money could not be used, the County
would have to reapply. Traylor moved
the Board pay back the money and the
interest. Branch seconded the motion,
and it passed unanimously.
Wells presented a list of members
of the Comprehensive Planning Corn
mittee, and requested the Board place
them on the County's liability insur-
ance policy. Upon inquire by Money,
Wells stated that they would be
covered during preparation of the
Comprehensive Plan. Upon inquiry by
Birmingham, Wells stated that this,,
liability insurance would cover any
decisions or suggestions they make
while they re on this Committee,a nd
also stated that we are asking
coverage strictly for things that are
written in the Comprehensive Plan.
Peters moved the Board insure the
members based on decisions they
make in dealing with the Comprehen-
sive Plan. Traylor seconded the
motion. Wells stated there will be no
increase in premium, this is just a
technicality. Upon vote, the motion
passed unanimously. Birmingham.
requested Wells write the members of
the .Committee, notifying them of the
Board's decision. A copy of the list of
members is on file in the Clerk's
Wells discussed that the State
requires that public hearings be held
during the Comprehensive Planning
process. He stated that he feels it is
time for one to be held, and requested
the Board schedule a public hearing
and review session for one hour prior
to the August 23, 1988 regular Board
Meeting. He also stated that the
engineering company could come and
apprise the Board of exactly where
we are and give a little forecast of
what the Board can expect, in the
coming months ,and years. He report-
ed that it would also be the monthly
Comprehensive Planning Committee
meeting, as well as a public hearing,
and the Committee would be invited to
attend. Peters moved the Board
approved Wells' request, and Traylor
secondea the motion. Upon inquiry by
Marion Hough, Wells reported that
they Have information on file concern-
ing the Comprehensive Plan. Rish
recommended the Board hold a
workshop before holding the actual
public hearing, in order to hash out
any problems they may have with the
Plan. Upon vote, the motion passed
unanimously. Birmingham then set
an afternoon workshop session for
August 9, 1988, after the regular Board
meeting and lunch, for the Board
members to go over the Plan. Upon
request by Rish, Birmingham direct-
ed Wells to provide the Board with
copies of the Plan before the workshop,
session, to give them time to review it.
Wells presented a letter written
by Road Superintendent Lester and
himself, in answer to a letter received
from Marvin H. Riley, President of
the Gulf Aire Property Owners
Association, concerning a ditch loca-
ted in Gulf Aire, Phase II. The Board
had no objection to the letter.
Wells presented information re-
ceived from the Florida Association of
Counties, concerning the Florida
Retirement System, for the Board's
Mosquito Control Director Graves
requested permission to close down'
his department on Monday, July 4,
1988, in observance of Independence
Day. Upon motion by Branch, second
by Traylor, and unanimous vote, the
Board approved Graves' request.
Graves reported that he hired
James Newsome as a mosquito
sprayer because Nancy Falls decided
she did not want the job, and
requested the Board's permission to
keep him on. Upon motion by Branch,
second by Money, and unanimous
vote, the Board approved Graves'
Graves requested the Board allow
him to set Donnie Brake up to a
permanent truck driver position, at
the rate of $5.80 per hour. He stated
that Brake is very good at operating a
backhoe, but it does not pay as much
as the truck driver position, so he
wants to raise him to the higher pay
on a permanent basis, so he can do
either job at the same rate. Birming-
ham discussed the personnel policy
concerning this matter. Traylor
moved the Board approve Mosquito
Control Director Graves' request.
Branch seconded the motion, and it
passed unanimously. Birmingham
directed Peters to check the personnel
policy to see if permanent set-ups
need to be brought before the Board,
and report back at the next meeting.
Road Superintendent Lester re-
ported he received two quotes to
repair the two approaches to the box
culverts in the Simmons Bayou area.
A copy of the quotes is on file in the
Clerk's office. Upon motion by Money,
second by Peters, and unanimous
vote, the Board agreed to hire Brock
Paving Company to do the job.
Birmingham directed Lester to notify
Brock of the Board's decision..
Money discussed the information
received from the Florida Association
of Counties concerning the Florida
Retirement System, and moved the
Board write the Governor, requesting
he veto this bill (SB 150). He stated
that according to the update, it is
going to cost the County a large
amount of money. Peters seconded
the motion, and it passed unanimous-
ly. Birmingham directed Wells to
write this letter to the Governor.

Rish discussed the need to send
George Quintin a copy of Building
Inspector Manuel's answer to his
complaint concerning the high cost of
a building permit. Birmingham di-
rected Wells to send Quintin a copy of
Building Inspector Manuel's letter,
and to notify him that if he still has
concerns with this matter, he may call
the Chairman or the Administrative
Assistant, or he may come back
before the Board.

Lister discussed that it is time to
do the Notice to Receive bids for
insurance, and asked the Board to set
a date and time for receiving the bids.
Upon inquiry by Rish, Lister reported
that per the contract, the insurance
company is supposed to file the
experience modification, but he will
have to check to see if they have.
Birmingham stated that we need to
make sure that it is filed. After
discussion, Traylor moved the Board
advertise to receive bids for insurance
on August 23, 1988, at 7:00 p.m.
Branch seconded the motion, and it
passed unanimously.
Lister presented three court ord-
ers for payment, in the total amount of
$6,801.55, in the case of the State of
Florida vs. Clyde Melvin. Peters
moved the Board pay these orders,
and Traylor seconded the motion.
Brance requested that itemized state-
ments be attached to the orders. The
Board then discussed the order they
had previously tabled on Inez Huck-
eba's witness fees. Rish stated he does
not think the Judge was implying that
this does not have to be paid, only that
they have a right to express their
opposition. He stated, however, that
the Attorney's feqs to take it before
the Judge might cost more than the
bill itself. Upon vote, the motion
passed unanimously.
Lister presented a contract, for
service of process for the Title IV-D
Program, between the Board, the
Sheriff, and the Department of HRS,
for the Board's approval. Upon
motion by Traylor, second by Peters,
and unanimous vote, the Board
approved the, contract.
Birmingham stated that all court
orders for payment be the Board, in
the case of the State of Florida vs.
Clyde Melvin, should be brought
before the Board. Upon inquiry by
Lister, Birmingham stated that the
order concerning Inez Huckeba's
witness fees should be brought back
before the Board for consideration.
Upon inquiry by Rish, Birmingham
stated he should only check into the
orders that the Board direct him to
check into. Rish stated that he will
write Alton Paulk, requesting that he
send the orders to the Board, not to
him. Upon inquiry by Marion Hough,
Birmingham stated that the Attorney
. is looking into obtaining moneyto help
the County bear the cost of these
expenses. After discussion about the
letter requesting the Public Defend-
er's Office pay the defense costs of
Clyde Melvin (which the Board had
previously approved), Birmingham
directed Lister to write this letter to
the Public Defender's Office. Upon
further inquiry by Hough, Rish
reported that he has made contacts,
and is doing everything he can to get
our money back.
Rish reported that he was contact-
ed by Investor's Realty, of Tallahas-
see, concerning the letter they had
written requesting the Board accept
them, in place of the Doziers, in the
lease agreement on the Dozier
Property. He stated that they are
asking that the Board reply to their
request. Upon inquiry by Branch
concerning the loss of tax relief to the
Doziers if the, property is sold within
five years of the date of the
agreement, Rish stated that as far as
he knows there has never been any tax
relief, but he can check into it. Branch
stated that if we are going to be giving
a developer a tax break until he
decides to build, he does not see how
the Board would be accomplishing
anything. Birmingham stated that the
property has been sold, and they need
to decide whether or not they wish to
continue the agreement. Upon request
by Branch, Birmingham directed
Rish to check further into this matter,
to see what they intend to do with this
Upon inquiry by Money concern-
ing the possibility of the temporary
mosquito sprayers emptying trash
cans if they are placed on the beach,
Mosquito Control Director Graves
reported that the sprayers work 40
hours per week. He stated that they
could empty the barrels on Monday,
but that is the only day. Money then
discussed the trash cans at the Beacon
Hill Park, and stated he would like to
see the Board take on the responsibi-
lity for these cans. After further
discussion, Birmingham recommend-
ed the Board write the Sheriff to see if
he could use some of his prisoners
(trustees) to take on the task of
emptying barrels placed on the beach.
After discussion about the Jaycees
caring for the Beacon Hill Park trash
cans, Birmingham stated that the
Board could (1) write the Jaycees and
notify them that if they do not empty
the barrels on a regular basis they will
be removed, (2) leavethe barrels and
let the Jaycees empty them whenever
They please, or (3) leave the barrels
and take on the responsibility them-
selves. He also stated that if they want
the Mosquito Control Department to
empty the barrels, they will have to
hire additional personnel. Upon re-
commendation by Branch and Money
that they write the Sheriff to utilize his
trustees to empty barrels placed on
the beach, Birmingham told them to
keep in mind that even if he agrees to
take on the duty, he could not be
forced to do it. Birmingham directed
Wells to write this letter to the Sheriff.
Marion Hough discussed the
condition of the St. Joe Beach garbage
dump, since the ramp has been
leveled, and discussed the difficulty in
emptying barrels into the trailers
because of their height. Mosquito
Control Director Graves stated that

the ramp was leveled because people
kept burning the trailers, and it has
cost quite a bit of money to continue
repairing them. Birmingham stated
that this problem is not unique to that
area, and it is a shame that a few
people make it difficult for everyone.
Graves reported that there are four
sites that do not have a ramp, and
with the exception of Dead Man's
Curve, they are kept fairly clean.
Upon inquiry by Marion Hough
concerning the possibility of having
the trucks that pick up the garbage
also empty the barrels on the beach,
Graves stated that the men could not
lift 55-gallon barrels over their heads
to empty them into the garbage truck.
Money requested the Board send
Citrus County a copy of the County's

morality ordinance, per their request.
The Board had no objection.
Branch requested the barrels at
the Beacon Hill Park be removed until
a solution to the problem is found. He
stated that even though the Jaycees
agreed to empty the barrels, they
should not have to. Peters objected to
the barrels being removed, because
people are utilizing the Beacon Hill
Park. Wesley Ramsey, editor of The
Star, suggested the Board contact the
City of Mexico Beach, to see if they
would empty the barrels at the
Beacon Hill Park, since they are only
a half mile away. The Board then
discussed the areas; where the public
has access to the beach. Birifingham
then stated that they could write a
letter to Mexico Beach, if the Board
has no objections, but he feels the
barrels should be picked up until there
is a definite plan for emptying them
on a regular basisL Peters suggested
having the Mosquito Control Depart-
ment empty the cans just until the
next Board meeting. Birmingham told
him to keep in mind that it would take
two of the Mosquito Control Depart-
ment men to empty two barrels, and
this would be expensive. Peters stated
that if it was not a service to the
people, he would not suggest it. Upon
inquiry by Peters, Graves reported he
could send someone during the middle
of the week, but that is the only time.
After further discussion, Birmingham
directed the Mosquito Control Depart-
ment to empty the cans for the next
two weeks, to allow time to get
answers from the Sheriff and the City
of Mexico Beach.
Upon inquiry by Branch, Wells
stated he is not aware of whether or
not Jef Gardner is still president of the
Jaycees. Branch then stated that
there has been discussion at several
meetings concerning applying for
permits to construct permanent drive-
ways at the Beacon Hill Park. He
requested the Board direct Road
Superintendent Lester to apply for the
permits and install the driveways. He
stated the Gardner was pursuing this
at one time, but he feels Lester can
obtain the permits and install the
driveways. Lester stated that Gard-
ner had a drawing or plan for that
project, and he is not sure of the exact
dimensions. Branch moved the Board
direct Lester to obtain the permits
and install the driveways at the
Beacon Hill Park. Money seconded
the motion. Upon discussion by Lester
about the plan, Branch suggested he
get with Wells and contact Gregg
Burch, member of the Jaycees, to see
if they have a copy of the plan,
otherwise they can do it as they see fit.
Upon vote, the motion passed unani-
mously. Birmingham directed Lester
to get with Wells, and if Burch has no
idea how it was to be constructed, for
him to design it as he feels it should
Peters discussed a letter from the
City of Wewahitchka, stating that they
are satisfied with the paving done on
Harden Circle, West 4th Street, and
Pine Street, and requesting the Board
release the funds to Capital Asphalt,
Inc. for payment. He stated that, at'
the last Board meeting, Ralph Rish of
Baskerville-Donovan Engineers pre-
sented a pay request from Capital
Asphalt, Inc., in the amount of
$269,715.87, of which $23,989.90 was for
the work done in the City of
Wewahitchka. He then stated that he
was under the impression that this
had been taken care of. Birmingham
reported that it has been taken care
of, and the City of Wewahitchka is
aware of this. Wells stated that he
requested this letter from them, so
that we would know they are satisfied
with the work that was done. Peters
then discussed that we agreed to give
them $25,000.00, and inquired about
what will be done with the difference
in the amounts. Birmingham stated
the difference will be sent to the City
of Wewahitchka. Upon inquiry by
Lister about a retainer, Wells stated

that there is a retainer on the project;
but he will have to check to see if it
includes any of the City's work.
Birmingham stated he understands
that there is a small amount of money
that we are going to send directly to
them, which they are going to use to
pay their part of the engineering
costs, and he feels they will be sending
us a letter requesting it.
Peters reported that the Beautifi-
cation Committee of Port St. Joe had
their general clean-up last Saturday,
and he thanked Rish for participating.
Rish also reported that the paper
company was actively involved.
Branch stated that the main problem
is keeping it clean once it has been
Lester discussed a request from
Mr. Schreck that they move their pile
of fill dirt from the side of the highway
on CR30E. He requested the Board
allow him to move the pile of dirt to
the County's property behind the
trailers. Money recommended the
Board allow him to do this. The Board
had no objections.
Peters discussed a problem on
Highway 98, at the bridge in front of
the Tapper's house. He stated that the
grass is very high on both sides and
around the bridge, and recommended
the Board write the Department of
Transportation requesting they clean-
up around this bridge. Birmingham
directed Wells to write this letter.
Birmingham discussed a letter
from the Florida Game and Fish
Commission, stating they have com-
pleted the work on the boat ramp
project at the Dead Lakes State Park,
and directed Lester to check into this
first thing in the morning to see if it
has been done. Wesley Ramsey stated
that he was invited to the ceremony
when the project was finished, and
reported that he was told to come to
the Cypress Creek Lodge. Birming-
ham discussed that the letter they
sent us on 1-26-88 stated they would be
renovating both ramps, but their
letter on 6-16-88 refers to the Dead
Lakes boat ramp only. He said he
feels they are actually referring to the
ramp at Cypress Creek, instead of the
one at the Dead Lakes Park.
Birmingham then directed Lester to
check into this, and let Wells know his
findings. He directed Wells to call
R6bert J. Wattendorf (if both ramps
have not been renovated), and refer
him to their letter date 1-26-88.
Birmingham discussed letters
sent to the Board that do not have a
signature, and recommended the
Board not allow these letters to be
entered into the agend or the minutes.
Peters moved the Board accept the
Chairman's recommendation, and
Traylor seconded the motion. Upon
vote, it passed unanimously. Rish
stated that the letters do not need to be
thrown away, they should be kept on
file. Birmingham directed Deputy
Clerk Collier to make a file for
unsigned letters, and not to put them
in future agendas. Branch requested
that letters addressed to an individual
Commissioner be sent to that Com-
missioner, and those addressed to the
Board as a whole be filed. The Board
had hno objections. After further
discussion, Birmingham directed De-
puty Clerk Collier to follow Branch's
request. Upon inquiry by Deputy
Clerk Collier concerning whether or
not copies of the letter mailed to the
Commissioners should be kept in the
file, Birmingham stated that copies do
not need to be filed.
Upon inquiry by Birmingham,
Wells stated he wrote the letter to the
Highland View Volunteer Fire De-
partment, informing them that the
Board is attempting to secure funds to
purchase apparatuses for the fire
departments. Birmingham commend-
ed him on the fine job that was done on
this letter, stating he is pleased to
have his name signed to it.
There being no further, business,
the meeting did then adjourn.
