At about 5:00. p.m. Friday afternoon, cars were already finding it touchy going on Highway 98
Heavy rainfall caused flooding in several parts of
Port St. Joe Friday of last week, when the heavy
precipation of a front riding the outer fringes of tropical
storm Florence lashed the Gulf County area.
Gulf County Sheriff's Department spokesmen say
the flooding situation also existed in Wewahitchka,
which caused the closing of Highway 71 and State Road
22 in several spots in and around Wewahitchka.
"We had Highway 98 closed to traffic because of
flooding around the River Road and Church Street
areas", Sheriff Al Harrison said. "Highway 22 had
a couple of places where it was flooded and made driving
hazardous", he continued.
Here in Port St. Joe, virtually all of the downtown
area had flooding of some degree. Water entered several.
places of business along Williams and Reid Avenues, due
to the inability of the,.rainwa.ter to run off fast enough.
Highway 98 was flooded and had traffic detoured
from Fifth Street to the overpass. The highway was
flooded entirely near the railroad crossings into St. Joe
Forest Products Container Division plant. At times the
water was too deep for a vehicle to run through it. The
highway was flooded around the drain water intakes at
intersections all the way to Fifth Street.
City public works director, Martin Adkison said,
"The flooding was caused from a combination of things,
Caused by Heavy Rains
primarily too much water in too short a time for our
drainage system to handle it. Since our surface water
goes into St. Joseph Bay and the tide was higher than
usual at that particular time, it impeded run-off water
from entering the bay".
The high waters caused more inconvenience than it
did damages. One of the main inconveniences was that
Highway 98 was closed to traffic in the flooded area from
Mrs. Emily Simmons reported to The Star that a
total of 5.9 inches of rainfall fell from 8:00 am, Friday
until 8:00 a.m., Saturday. The greatest portion of this
rainfall was within two hours Friday afternoon.-
The rainfall was less than the amount which
flooded St. Joe Beach three weeks ago, but, like that
flooding incident, a lot fell in a very short while,
overtaxing the drainage facilities.
5:00 Friday afternoon to 2:00 a.m., the next morning
because of the flooding. Through traffic was re-routed
through Industrial Road to Highway 71, then to Highway
Saturday morning, all the flood waters had
subsided, even though the rains were still coming down
at a slower rate.
All flooding wasn't confined to downtown Port St. Avenue. The water is already covering the road and the

The County Commission took a
respite from the solid waste problem
Tuesday and dealt for a while with
medical matters in the county.
First, the commission had their
public health doctor, Dr. John Erick-
son, turn in his resignation, effective

Clyde Melvin Trial Underway In Pensacola
It took a week to decide an
impartial jury couldn't be selected in
Port St. Joe to try Clyde Melvin for a
triple murder back in May. It took just
one day to select a jury of nine women
and three men in Pensacola Monday,
with the trial arguments beginning on
Wednesday, the prosecution,
headed by States Attorney Jim
Appleman, is expected to wind up its
witnesses and the defense begin its
According to information receiv-
ed from Pensacola yesterday, it is
evident-even with their questioning
of prosecution witnesses-defense at-
torney Henry Barksdale is not deny-
ing Melvin's role in the Port St. Joe
Courthouse shooting, but will attempt
to prove that Melvin was insane at the
-moment of the shooting.
Circuit Judge W. L. Bailey,
attorney Tom Ingles and Peggy White
Paulk were killed and Melvin's es-
stranged wife, Inez Huckeba was
wounded in the shooting which
erupted after Judge W. Bailey had dis-
missed a petition which would relieve
Melvin of a need to pay alimony.
In the trial Tuesday, Mrs. Inez
Huckeba Melvin testified that Melvin
rose from his seat, shut the hearing
room door and drew a .357 magnum
pistol after Bailey read his decision.
Huckeba further testified that
Melvin shot at Judge Harper and shot
attorney Ingles, when Ingles grabbed
him from behind in a bear hug in an
attempt to overpower him. She said
Paulk was shot as she came up the
stairs which enter the second story
hallway adjacent to the hearing room.
Huckeba testified that Melvin was
pursuing her down the hall, when
Paulk came up the stairs and was shot
Melvin shot several times at
Huckeba while chasing her through a
hallway. Huckeba said she made her
way into a hallway which connected
the courthouse to the jail and Melvin
followed. The witness said when
Melvin caught her he said, "Now it's
your time", pulled a .22 pistol and
shot, striking Huckeba in the head,
wounding her. At about this time,
Sheriff Al Harrison came around the
corner of the courthouse and shot
Melvin in the neck. Huckeba said she
gained possession of Melvin's gun and
threw it over the parapet of the jail
Sheriff Harrison testified he did-
n't know at the time that he was
pursuing Melvin there had been three
killings in the courthouse. "I just
thought he was threatening his wife
with a gun after shooting two or three
times. I didn't find out until I arrested
him on the roof that the three people
had been killed", he testified.
Bob Moore, who was Melvin's
attorney at the time, said when the
shooting started, he left the hearing
room through the judge's chambers
and began warning people to lock
their office doors because a man had a
gun. Moore said he did not see the
The defense is apparently trying
to establish the fact that Melvin was
provoked by circumstances in the
room into firing his gun. The state is
attempting to prove that Melvin

took his two pistols into the hearing
room with that intention.

Beach Council Takes
Action to Set Recall
A second round of signatures on petitions to recall Mexico Beach city
councilman Bill Horn was certified last week and presented to the City
Council Tuesday night for their action.
According to City Clerk, Pat Hutchinson, the city of Mexico Beach
will now instruct their attorney, Paul Komarek to request a special
election of Circuit Judge Russell Bowers. Hutchinson said the
Commission is hopeful of being able to hold the recall election on
Tuesday, November 8, if the petition is granted by Judge Bowers.
November 8 is the general election date and the regular municipal
election date for Mexico Beach.
If Bowers is removed from office by the recall election, the
Commission would then have 30 days to name a successor to serve the
remaining one year left on Horn's term in office.
The recall election petition process was started after Horn charged
Councilman Al Cathey, City Manager, John McInnis and Police Chief Jeff
Sellers with conflict of interest actions. McInnis and Sellers have since
had their charges dismissed by the state ethics commission and Cathey's
charges still must be considered.
Former Mayor, Bob Hale started the petition action with the
approval of several former mayors of the beach community. Hale
charged that Horn's actions had been irresponsible, without foundation
and had severely damaged morale among city personnel.

Cecil G. Costin, one of the first residents of the resurrected city of Port St.
Joe in the early part of this century and a long-time business man of Port St.
Joe, observed his 91st birthday Tuesday, in a hale and hearty fashion.
Costin, who came to Port St. Joe in 1910, was the subject of a small
reception Monday afternoon at Citizens Federal Savings and Loan Association,
which he helped found and has been the only president the thrift association has
Costin still comes to work every day and spends most of the working day
active at his duties.
In remembering some of his former days and the older days of Port St. Joe,
Costin said Monday, "I've only been in a hospital once in my life for a few days
back in 1938. I never have had a headache and I have no physical problems I
Costin said when his church honored him as their oldest member by giving
him a Bible, he said, "Preacher, I have plenty of Bibles. It looks as if I'm going
to have this position for at least the rest of this century. Could you maybe save
up some of these yearly prizes and give me one large prize of say, a color TV?"
Costin remembers having to spend two days on a trip to Wewahitchka and
back by horse and buggy and having to meet and return grocery salesmen from
the ferry at Farmdale and returning them so they could catch the train in
Panama City, after working grocery stores there. Farmdale is on the Tyndall
reservation at the east end of the road labeled "Farmdale Road". There was no
bridge across the bay at that time.
Costin is making no plans to retire.
Editorials and Comments
PAGE TWO THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 15,1988
We had a candidate seeking election in Gulf county who
didn't survive the first primary.
Why do we mention him then? We mention him here in
these columns because, even though he didn't survive the first
"cut" of candidates, he set an example for every candidate still
in the race and all the others who, with him, were defeated last
Every Wednesday, we circle the county, tending the many
news stand locations for distribution of The Star (one of the
chores one gets to do when he operates a small town weekly)
and we noted the signs of this particular unsuccessful candidate
had already been taken down.
Sheriff's candidate Frankie Mills didn't get as many votes
as he wanted Tuesday, but he is a winner in our book for his
actions the first thing Wednesday. He circled the county and
either took or had taken down a large number of signs nailed to
trees, utility posts, stuck on posts in the ground, etc. Almost
everywhere one went, there had been a Frankie Mills sign.
Wednesday afternoon, we saw two still up-one on the property
adjacent to the Port St. Joe branch of the Wewahitchka State
Bank and another at the intersection of Long Avenue and Tenth
Street here in Port St. Joe.
We feel sure Mr. Mills just missed these two signs
considering the large number he had already removed and will
have these two down after he reads this, if, indeed, they are still
up by Wednesday afternoon of this week.
The county is covered by signs of every shape, size and
description. Attention has been called to a need to have them
removed this year as never before. The DOT and Florida Power
even put out notices to keep political signs off highway rights of
way and utility poles. Most of this was to no avail, since some
who would administer and make our laws for us have flaunted
the law by placing their signs in road rights of way and on utility
The two who sounded warnings concerning political signs
have practiced restraint toward signs being placed where they
were not wanted, so we trust the candidates will show the same
courtesy for other's property and remove their signs when they
are through with them.
Why Is It?
The City Commission vocalized one of the most common
complaints heard in Port St. Joe the other day. Since they
voiced it, the street and barber shop conversation has been at a
virtual roar over the problem after being murmured for the
past several years.
Why is it we can't have a permanent postmaster here in
Port St. Joe? That's a legitimate question. Why is it?
During the past 10 years, Port St. Joe, Apalachicola and
Wewahitchka all have had their postmasters retire. Ours was
first, when Chauncey Costin decided to step down a few years
back. Then just a couple of years ago, the postmasters at
Apalachicola and Wewahtichka also retired. Apalachicola
and Wewahitchka both have full time, operating, responsible
Port St. Joe has had nearly a dozen "officers in charge"
over the past few years and still no permanent postmaster to
take over the local duties.
We can't really blame the local Post Office force, or even
the temporary directors of the service here, but during this
time, the service has become less than unsatisfactory.
We believe that with the naming of a permanent, resident
postmaster to run the office, we would have more acceptable
service out of our mail business.
Our City Commission has officially said as much to our
delegation to Washington, D.C., and, hopefully, as the result of
their intervention, the service will improve.
One of the things which would improve tremendously, along
with a permanent director, would be making a change in the
ruling which requires a letter mailed from one end of the block
to the other from being sent to Panama City to be "cancelled".

Conditions Were Ripe for Us to Have A Flood Last Friday
IF WE DIDN'T have some
flooding during the week end, I'd
consider Gulf County the luckiest
county on the Florida coast, after all
the rain we had received by Friday
afternoon, when this was written, and
were predicted to have the remainder
of the week end.
And, with fledgling hurricane
Florence dancing around off the
Gulf coast Friday afternoon, waiting
for an opportune moment to come
ashore, we're bound to have plenty
more rain over the week end to go
with what we had already received
up to noon Friday.
It's times like this we are
susceptible to have our floods here in
Gulf County and if we don't have one,
we can consider ourselves lucky.
This first hurricane of the season
was being billed as not much of a
hurricane as hurricanes go.
Winds still were not up to
hurricane force by Friday afternoon,
but "tropical storm" Florence was
beginning to peg out in wind speed and
become an official if riot a particularly
WHAT IS DANGEROUS to some
might not be dangerous to others and
The news cast bulletins on Flor-
ence Friday afternoon stressed the
"mild" adjective in describing Flor-
ence, and since the winds still hadn't
reached official hurricane .speed of 74
miles per hour, I suppose you could
call it "mild".
But, if you are in the path of a
"mild" 70 mile per hour tropical
storm, it's not a particularly comfort-
If you live in the path of one of
these tropical storms, you are a prime
candidate for flooding.
Even the animals had moved to
safety Friday, getting set to ride out
this "mild" hurricane.
Our outside white cat-not to be
confused with the black bob tail wh6
just came visiting and stayed-knows
how to prepare for even the "mild"
Our outside white cat didn't even
come inside when Kate came calling.
She stayed outside, used her wits and
stayed high and dry and didn't get a
tuft of his white coat ruffled by the
Friday, I opened the door on the
west side of the house and there was
the old outside white cat, curled up in
the doorway, out of the rain, out of the
wind and warm as toast.
While the rest of us watched the
storm's progress, the cat was getting
in-you guessed it-a cat nap!
ALTHOUGH STORMS TEND to
frighten some people, especially
women and little kids, storms don't
faze football teams even a little bit.
The Sharks and the Gators just
put on their wading boots, water-
proofed.their kicking T, put the lid on
the Gatorade bucket to keep it from
getting diluted and make ready to
play the game.
Two or three of those raindrops
will keep us from doing a number of
things, like going to church, going to
work, visiting your mother-in-law,
going to the doctor, going to school,
going out to pay the bills (even though
it is the ninth) or any number of other
activities. If you didn't particularly
want to do it in the first place, the rain
over the weekend days were a good
excuse not to get it done.
But, when it comes to playing
football, we can get that done, after a
fashion, by dragging out the rain
tough it out. Fortunately, cooler heads
prevailed and the game was post-
poned 24 hours on Friday afternoon.

I UNDERSTAND THAT on the
day you read this, it will be a nice,
bright, sun-shiny fall day with the
temperature just right, the weather
sunny, and all memories of this past
week end put to rest. A situation such
as that will tend to take some of the
edge off today's column subject.
That's OK by me. I had just as
soon have a nice, pretty day and not
have you as interested in these words
as to have a stormy, yukky day and
you hanging on the edge of every
paragraph just because it is timely.
A rainy day will separate the men
from the boys alright, and show up
those of a foolish nature who insist on
playing games out in the wet and the
The rain also makes for a perfect
excuse to just take it easy, take the
phone off the hook, get into a good
book and let it rain!..
But, it's also susceptible to bring
floods to these flat low lands. After
the floods experienced by the St. Joe
Beach area about a month ago, I
certainly hope that didn't happen
again with our week end plans.

Shame On You, Charles Hill
MOST PEOPLE WHO live in small towns have much to be proud of,
especially those who live in Northwest Florida.
My family and I live here because we don't like big city life, but
mainly because of the people and the location. Who wouldn't want to live
in a town that has it all?
I TRIED AS HARD as anyone to win the $50 million plus lottery. I
reasoned that it was about time someone in North Fl6rida won one of the
lotteries: why not me?
With this thought foremost in mind, I bought as many tickets as I
could comfortably afford and hoped for the best. I, like several million
other people, thought I actually had a chance.
If I don't win, I thought, I hope someone I know wins it and they are
deserving. In other words, I wanted someone in North Florida to win
(namely me) and I hoped they would be from a small town (Port St. Joe)
and I also hoped they would need the money (me again).
TO SAY I WAS disappointed when both of my tickets didn't win would
be a vast understatement. However, I was somewhat elated when a
friend rushed into my office Tuesday morning and told me that Charles
Hill of nearby Bristol, Florida, had won.
He also told me that word had it, from a reliable source, that Mr. Hill
had called a car dealer nearby and ordered the biggest, most elaborate
van he had and was preparing to travel to Tallahassee to collect his just
reward. He also stated that his source had told him that Mr. Hill had
summoned the sheriff to guard his ticket and a deputy to protect his home
. from potential intruders.
"I don't blame him," I replied. "I probably would have done the
same thing, except I would have ordered a bus so I could take all my
family and friends to Tallahassee with me."
Only in America! I thought as I heard Paul Harvey announce Mr.
Hill's name on national news later in the day. A janitor one day and a
multi-millionaire the next! I was so proud for Mr. Hill and his family.
What a deserving man, my thoughts continued.
Throughout the day I told everyone the good news. The "American
Dream" had struck close to home! Charles Hill of Bristol had won the
biggest jackpot ever in America and he is from our "neck-of-the-woods."
THE NEXT DAY I became a little confused. Officials in Tallahassee
announced that there was only "one" winning ticket, yet two people
claimed to have won. The first person with a valid ticket to enter the door
would claim the prize, they assured everyone.
It was hard to believe what I read in the paper the following morning.
Mr. Hill's ticket wasn't a ticket at all, but a copy that seemed to have been
altered. According to authorities in Tallahassee, Mr. Hill stated he had
"lost" his ticket between Bristol and Tallahassee when he was stopped by
a Highway Patrolman for an undisclosed reason.
Later news releases stated that Mr. Hill hadn't won anything except
maybe a trip to the penitentiary. A lady in South Florida won the lottery,
it was determined, when she presented her ticket to the office in
I was highly suspect of Mr. Hill when he said he lost the ticket. I'm
even more suspect of the sheriff who "vouched" for him to get that van'
delivered; two vans, as a matter of fact.
SHAME ON YOU, Charles Hill! You're the type person who gives
small towns bad names.
Our Editor tried to tell me this

I couldn't choose,

So I ordered a baby
a special little girl:
Healthy, loving, sweet,
with dimples and a curl,
lots of laughter,
and eyes that are bright.
Then I prayed that God
would help me bring you up right.
Well, of course He got busy
went to work right away
That, was quite an order I sent
Him that day!
He worked and worked
did not even sleep
For all of nine months
before His work was complete.
He had filled the order
checked every detail, every word
So I named you Angelica

Then one Sunday morning

Beach Clean-Up Day,
There has been an increased
public awareness of a marine debris
problem on the coast for some time
now, along with the widely publicized
medical debris which is now washing
up on the shores. Plastics, glass and
metals are being dumped in waters
and are washing up on the shores.
The City Beautification Commit-
tee is organizing a beach clean-up in
conjunction with the National Beach
Clean-Up Day on September 24, 1988,
at Florida National Bank Park. All
interested groups or organizations are
invited to participate in this day; not
only to help keep the beaches clean,
safe and beautiful, but to insure our
rights to a clean, healthful beach.
Plastic bags and a Beach Clean-
up Data form will be provided for all
participants. The collection of this
marine debris on this day, is essential
because specific data will be recorded
on the particular items that are
collected. Then the center of Envir-
onmental Evaluation will evaluate the
effectiveness of specific measures
implemented to reduce debris.
For instance, effective December
1, 1988 the disposal of plastic trash

According to Larry Wells,
Civil Defense Director for Gulf
County, his office is watching Hur-
ricane Gilbert and is making
emergency plans for the Gulf
County area If the storm should
leave its projected path and take a
turn to threaten us.
At 2:00 p.m. yesterday, Sept.
14, the eye of the hurricane was at
.20.7 latitude and 87.2 longitude on
a north of west course, and approx-
imately. 600 miles southwest of
Port St. Joe.
Wells stressed that this hur-
ricane has been declared a Class V
hurricane,, the strongest storm
category. In comparison Kate
which struck our area in
November of 1985 was a Class I
with eight feet and less storm
tides. Gilbert is currently pushing
12-15 ft. tides as it strikes Mexico
and a 16' surge is expected when it
strikes land after crossing the Gulf
Wells urges everyone in the 20*
community to keep a watch on the /
hurricane by staying abreast of its
current location. If it should take a
course change to threaten our area

Postmaster Pledges Improved Service for St. Joe
To .the Community of Port St. Joe:
My name is Joseph A. Martin, Sr.
and I am your interim postmaster
here at Port St. Joe. During my
assignment, it's been brought to my
attention that the community has had
sonme considerable problems with the
Port St. Joe Post Office. Some of these
problems have included the misdeliv-
ery: of mail, and the frequent
transferring of past postmasters. Now
even though these inconveniences to
the community preceded my arrival, I
still believe it is my obligation to
address and alleviate these problems.
During my duties here at Port St.
Joe, I immediately plan to start
having the community's mail deliver-
ed efficiently and consistently. As for
the frequent transferring of postmas-
ters, for the most part, this situation is
basically beyond my control. But on
the other hand, I do believe by
effectively establishing a solid found-
ation for Port St. Joe's post office, my
employees and I can make the
community's post office a more
desirable one for the future postmas-
ter. This in turn, I believe, will

patience, we will succeed. I am proud
to see the community's concern with
the post office, and I encourage your
suggestions, as well as your com-
plaints, to be brought to my attention
with all due promptness. My manag-
ing philosophy is that of an "open door
policy", in which the public has direct
access to my office. This is a
philosophy I advocate and stand by,
because my doors are always open
and your views are always heard. I'm

Wewahitchka Gators 21-6
Port St. Joe's Sharks kept posses-
sion of the Gulf county championship
trophy Saturday night. The Sharks
had to use the second half to defeat a
stubborn Wewahitchka Gator squad
in a game which was postponed for 24
hours by inclement weather.
The Gators scored first in the
game, putting six points on the
scoreboard when the Gators' Wayne
Forehand picked off a Kevin Cox pass,
scampering 25 yards for the first
* score of the game.
Michael Myers tried to surprise
the Sharks with a two point conversion
attempt as quarterback Mike Sewell
attempted to hit Michael Myers with a
short pass for two points, but the ball
fell to the ground.
The Gators' six. points stood for
the remainder of the first half, even
though the Sharks mounted one drive
to the Gator 35 before they lost
possession to the Gators with a
fumble. The Sharks were unable to
mount a drive during the first half,
due to mistakes. The Sharks had two
lost fumbles, a clipping penalty at a
vital spot in a drive and a pass
interception to contend with as wells
a fired up Gator defense.
The second half looked early as if
it would be more of the same, with the
E Sharks having to punt from their own
40 on their first possession, but the
Sharks started a little pass intercept-
ing of their own when Sewell
attempted to get out of a hole on his
own 18 yard line, but Matt Taylor
stepped up, hauled in the ball and ran
back to the Gator nine before he was
Four downs later, with fourth
down and four yards to go for the
Sharks' first TD of the season,
quarterback Kevin Cox stacked it up
in the middle, kept the ball and almost
walked into the end zone at the right
corner. Bobby Williams kicked the
extra point and the Sharks had a lead
which they never relinquished for the
remainder of the game.
Toward the end of the third
period, the Gators were knocking on
the Sharks' door, trying to grab the
lead once more. On a drive which
started on their own 38 yard line, the
Gators had used everything they
could get, including a Shark offside
penalty, a personal foul penalty and a
pass interference penalty to get down
to the Shark nine yard line. The
Gators had put together a 15 yard pass
play to Ross Yowell, recovered their
own fumble for a four vard gain, a 7
yards scamper by quarterback Mike
Sewell and a four yard plunge by
Wayne Forehand to get to the Shark
Sewell attempted a pass out into
the flat, but the Sharks' Ken Monette
picked it off with only 12 seconds left
on the third quarter clock.
The last period was the big one for
the Sharks, who put up 14 unanswered
points to nail down their 21-6 season
opener win over the Gators.
On their first drive of the
quarter, the Sharks started on their
own eight yard line and used nine
plays to march the length of the field.
Big plays of the drive were 12
yard and 15 yard runs by David
Barnes, a 26 yard burst through the
middle by Russell Cherry and a 24
yard pitchout scoring play, with
quarterback Bill Ramsey tossing the
ball to speedy David Barnes who
raced down the sidelines, untouched,
Williams kicked the extra point
and the Sharks had a 14-6 lead.
With five minutes left in the
game, it was evident the Shark size
and depth were telling on the smaller
but game Gators and with just over a
minute left in the game, the Sharks
ended a drive which started on the 50
yard line, when quarterback Blaine
Adams sent Barnes loping around
right end to score on a fourth and one
situation. Williams kicked his third
extra point for the evening and the
game ended 21-6.
David Barnes was the workhouse
for the Sharks, carrying the ball 17
times for 110 yards. Russell Cherry
had 48 yards on seven carries; Kevin
Cox, 41 on two tries; Blaine Adams 19
in three attempts and Rolack 14 on 10
Friday night, the Sharks will open
their home season against Apalachi-
cola. Game time will be at 8:00 p.m.,
in Shark Stadium.
The Gators will be at home again,
with a game against Marahatha
Christian at 7:30 p.m., local time.
Nicholas Rolack (33) carries the ball for the Sharks as David Davis '(76)
blocks for him, as the Gator defense closes in.
Early Duck Season
During a meeting in Tampa
Friday, the Florida Game and Fresh
Water Fish Commission reduced the
bag limit for the September experi-
mental duck season.
The bag limit will be three wood
ducks per day per hunter. The taking
of other species of duck will be pro-
hibited during the Sept. 24-28 season.
Traditionally, hunters could take
four ducks per day during early duck
season. No more than one could be a
species other than wood duck or teal.
The daily bag limit is being reduced
this season due to the drought which
has affected waterfowl breeding
areas in the northern U.S. and
Commissioners also discussed
season dates .and bag limits for the
regular duck season. These also are
expected to be more restrictive this
season, due to the drought. Exact
dates, shooting hours and bag limits
will be announced later in September.
In other business, the Commission
discussed annual quotas for deer

"Project Cornerstone will serve
as the foundation for every economic
development program at every level
in our state to build upon. It will
become the rock on which our future
economy stands," said Bush during

Billed as the most comprehensive
and far reaching study of its kind
in over a decade. Project Cornerstone
will go beyond traditional targeted
industry studies and normal economic
modeling. It will not only provide
data on job trends, infrastructure and
educational needs: it will also make
specific recommendations to guide
business and government leaders in
shaping future policy decisions.
Conducting the three-phase study
due for release early next year are
SRI International (formerly Stanford
Research Institute), Menlo Park, CA;
Data Resources, Inc., Lexington, MA;
and MGT of America, Tallahassee.
The study's first phase will
examine the economy from a global
perspective, assessing how national
and international trends impact
Florida, now and in the future.
Phase two will take an in-depth
look at Florida industries and analyze
the influence of factors such as quality
of life, education systems, site mar-
kets, availability of capital, transpor-
tation and human resources.
The final phase will provide a
vision for the state's future as it
relates to technology and services;
recommend strategies for developing
policies for the public and private
sectors and outline the roles and
responsibilities for such groups as the
Legislature, state agencies, The
Florida Chamber and local chambers.
Florida Chamber President Lee
Scott says the study will analyze the
state's strengths and weaknesses
using a number of methodologies,
including survey work, interviews and
focus group studies. It will also look at
the reasons why former business
prospects rejected Florida as a

data and findings contained in the

Don't Make A Guess...Call EMS 227-1115
Don't Guess Call EMS that's the
slogan for this year's EMS education
week. Designated by Governor Bob
Martinez for Sept. 18-24 this week will
have an even greater message for the
people of Gulf County.
Gulf Pines Ambulance has under-
gone a lot of turmoil in the past
several years but now has a chance to
pick itself up, brush itself off and say,
"It's our time to shine".
Emergency Medical Services are
the Ambulance Services of the 80's,
our employees are trained profession-
als who are dedicated to the safety
and well-being of this community.
They are Emergency Medical Tech-
nicians and Paramedics who have
completed college courses set up to
maintain a standard of pre-hospital
care throughout the state. They are
registered by the State of Florida and
designated by the patches they wear.
They must maintain and constantly
update their knowledge because
emergency procedures are always
We have already started our
campaign to expand the pre-hospital
care of the community by working in
conjunction with the St. Joe Police
Department and Gulf County Sheriff's
Department whose officers attended
and completed a state recognized
First Responder Course. This assures
the people of the community of
additional trained personnel in the
event of emergency or disaster, by
supplimenting our staff.
Throughout the week we will be
visiting local schools and civic
organizations to help the community
get to know us and what EMS is all
about. We'll answer questions and tell
you how you can protect yourselves
and your loved ones by giving you
vital information for handling emer-
During the coming months you'll
see us change. As the Ambulance
Service of days gone by emerge into
the EMS of today our colors will
change from the traditional white
over navy significant of our masses to
our own chosen colors of brown and
green significant of our "Gulf Pines"
and the area we are proud to
represent. As funding permits our
equipment will be updated and
improved and with that our service
can expand. Our logos will change
with the promise that EMS in Gulf
County will be ever improving be-
cause we care about you -
So when you see an accident, don't
guess whether or not you should pull
the victim out of the car or should put
him in your car and carry him to the

That's what we're here for because we

Vegetable Crops Must Eat Too!
Regular Feeding with Fertilizers Necessary In Our Poor Soil
by Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Director
We all have to eat, and most of us
enjoy eating vegetables. But to
produce abundantly, vegetable crops
have to eat too. We have to feed them
ROY LEE CARTER
fertilizer, however fertilizers can be
confusing. For example, what do the
numbers on the fertilizer tag means?
How much of what kind should we
use? When and how should the
fertilizer be applied?
Florida's sandy soils are notor-
iously infertile. This is a major
problem for commercial farmers and
backyard gardeners alike. You can
improve the fertility of your garden
soil with animal manures and other
kinds of organic matter: But, in most'
situations, you also need to add a
Plants need a variety of nutrients.
But, the major elements you must
supply are nitrogen, phosphorus, and
potassium. These chemicals are al-
ways listed in that order on the
fertilizer tag. The tag also shows the
quality of each major element in the
mix. For example, 100-pound bag of
8-8-8 fertilizer contains eight pounds of
nitrogen compound, eight pounds of
phosphorus, in the form of phosphoric
acid, and eight pounds of potassium
compound, called potash.

ed their menus for the week of

The type and amount of fertilizer
you need will depend largely on the
kind of soil in your garden. Your
objective is to add only those nutrients
that your soil doesn't already contain
in adequate amounts. You should
remember that too much fertilizer
can be as bad as too little. Of course, if
you apply too little, your garden will
be unproductive. But, if you add too
much, you'll waste money, and you
may even injure crops.
In general, a 8-8-8 or 10-10-10.
analysis fertilizer is best for sandy
soils. For muck and peat soils, which
: are already high in nitrogen, a 0-12-20
analysis is recommended. For sandy
soils, and other soil with a low
nitrogen content, you'll need one or
two pounds per 100 square feet of
garden. On organic soils, you'll need
one or two pounds per 100 square feet.
If the soil in your garden isn't typical
of either of these common types, you
should have your soil analyzed to
determine the best kind of fertilizer
for your particular needs.
You should divide the amount of
fertilizer called for into two appli-
cations. About half should be broad-
cast over the entire garden a week or
two before planting. The rest should
be applied in shallow furrows on both
sides of the seed rows at planting
time. This procedure is called band-
ing. The furrows should be about six
inches apart, and only two or three
inches deep. Spread the fertilizer
evenly in the furrows, and then fill
them with soil.
The amount of fertilizer you place
in each furrow will vary according to
the distance between seed rows. With
narrow rows, you'll have more
furrows in a given area, and just a
little fertilizer in each one. Where the
rows are further apart, you'll have
fewer furrows, with more fertilizer in
each one. Just be sure to apply the
right amount for your garden, and
spread it evenly through the furrows.

Development Would Ruin Bay
Says Area Environmentalist on Flowers' Proposed Pensinula Marina
By: Jack Rudloe
The July 6 Tallahassee democrat
editorial concerning the stated desire
of Cape San Bias developers to protect
the bay while still developing a
marina -and golf course was naive in
the extreme. As always, people want
to believe they can have their cake
and eat it, too.
Barrier beach ecosystems are
extremely fragile biological commun-
ities that have been repeatedly
destroyed by human development.
Those at Cape San Bias in particular
are a major landfall for migratory
birds in the spring and fall. Many of
these species are already in serious
decline due to habitat destruction
Already the indiscriminate build-
ing of condominiums has reduced part
of the spit from a once beautiful
landscape to its present' clutter of
buildings and power lines. In one
large developed area, almost all the
sand pines that are the major
protection from wind erosion are
dead. The only thing ".'environmental-
ly sensitive" about the existing
development at the.Cape is the fact
that it isn't yet complete and some
undeveloped! land still remains' to
employ bulldozer operators next year.
The runoff and sewerage from
upland development is already a gun
pointed at the bay. Runoff from
fertilizers necessary to grow grass for
a golf course in the bare mineral sand
presents a grave risk of polluting the
bay as well by raising nutrient levels
and allowing increased growth of
microscopic plants or phytoplankton.
This in turn will reduce the clarity
of the water and in all probability lead
to the loss of the sea grasses and the
hundreds of species of animals .they
support. This is not speculative it
has already happened over and over
in South Florida.
Now, the incredibly rich marine
grass beds of St. Joe Bay are directly
threatened by a marina. The Envir-
onmental Protection Agency's siting
criteria for marinas specifically re-
commends against locations adjacent
to grass beds or in approved shellfish
harvesting waters. The bay's grass
beds support hundreds of species of
plants and animals in huge numbers
and are probably the richest marine
environment in Florida coastal wat-
ers outside of the Keys.
Dredging will directly destroy the
grass on the site. Turbidity will
reduce growth in adjacent areas and
the polluted water of the marina basin
and greatly increased boat traffic will
impact the bay for years to come.
Marinas are invariably a source
of heavy metal and petroleum pollu-
tion to the sediments, adjacent waters
and biota. No mitigation by the
developer will change this.
The construction of a marina will
automatically lead to closure of some
of the most productive shellfish
waters of North Florida. Significant
commercial landings of clams will be,
lost and the sport fishery for scallops
will be seriously threatened.
Even if all the above problems
could be addressed-which they
can't-the addition of more recrea-
tional boats to the already overcrowd-
ed system will create major environ-
mental problems. Much of the bay is
extremely shallow, with tides that
vary widely from predicted condi-
tions. Already the grass beds are
crisscrossed with the prop scars left
by boaters struggling not to run
aground. These scars destroy Ithe
grass and remain fot years.
The current level of human use
has already led to noticeable changes
in species present in the last several
decades. In the 25 years that we have
conducted research, collected ani-
Florida Growing at Fast Clip;
Rate Is Above National Average
mals for other researchers and taught
marine biology, in St. Joe Bay, we
have seen the populations of. large
predatory whelks and conchs, which
are critical to the ecosystem, stripped
out by shell collectors. This, too, will
only be intensified.
The Department of Natural Re-
sources and the Department of
Environmental Regulation will have
to make some hard choices to protect
the public interest. There is already
existing public access from the state
park, the city park and several fish
camps. Anyone who wants to go, can.
The DER in particular would do
well to give this project a careful
evaluation. St. Joe Bay deserves
better than the superficial analysis
the agency has been known to conduct
in permit applications in other areas.
We have years of experience in the
area and expect to participate in the
decision-making process as fully as
the law allows.
If developer Langdon Flowers
does not want to be known as "the guy
who ruined the bay," perhaps he
should totally rethink his plans for
such environmentally incompatible
developments as marinas and golf
courses. Perhaps, like many others,
he honestly believes that engineers
can solve everything. That is simply
not the case in this situation.

Florida will continue growing at a
pace above the national average, but
the economy will be expanding more
slowly through the end of the decade
tan it did in the past five years. Some-
df this is due to the nation's economy,
vhich is being affected by renewed
fJars of inflation and a shift from a
onsumption-led growth to an unpre-
dedent period of export-led growth.
Dr. Hank Fishkind, a member of
Florida Trend magazine's Board of
Economists and president of Fishkind
& Associates, a Winter Park consult-
ing firm, says the national economy is
entering a period of "stagflation" that.
is neither boom nor recession, but
somewhere in between. For 1988,
Gross National Product (GNP) is
projected to grow between 2.5 percent
and 3.5 percent, about the same as the
last two years.

magazine, Fishkind warns that the
national economy is at a delicate
stage, when accelerating economic
growth generates fears of inflation-
Factories which manufacture pro-
ducts for export are running at full
capacity, and U.S. labor markets are
virtually at full employment. At such
times, any increased demand for
domestic products is likely to result in
higher prices, according to the
Meanwhile, the falling value of
the U.S. dollar is directly inflationary
because it pushed import prices
higher .and allows domestic prices to
rise. Fishkind predicts that although
the national economic outlook does
not include a recession this year,
Florida will experience a slowing in
population growth as stagflation sets
in, interest rates rise and housing
markets deteriorate in the North
keeping.retirees away who otherwise
would move to Florida. Job creation
will also slow as tourism declines and
defense contract work dries up.
The good news is that even at
lower levels, Florida's population
growth will remain above average.
The state added 1.5 million new
residents in the last four years; only
the 1.7 million increase from 1970 to
1974 was higher. Meanwhile, over the
past four years, Florida's economy
generated more new jobs than in any
other four-year period in its history.
In a nutshell, the new era of
stagflation nationally will mean that
the state's current extraordinary
growth will slow to a: more ordinary
rate, but Florida is still expected to
outperform the rest of the nation.

Study Shows Some Jobs Go Begging for People
Florida is the fourth-largest and
fastest growing state. Over 800 people
move here every day. Florida's
,unemployment rate is so low, many
areas of the state have virtually full
employment. As a consequence, 12,000
service jobs in Central Florida go
For many businesses, the bad

the 580 CEOs polled in Florida Trend's
1988 Business Survey said they have
trouble finding qualified labor, and
nearly 80 percent of those said they
have raised wages to attract workers.
The good news is that Florida's

he was desperate for help. "We ran

always have good luck," May said.
When he heard a radio promotion for
Project Independence, he called.
A recent graduate fit May's
profile. Now Annette Lee does all the
buying for the company, a booming
manufacturer for store fixtures for
restaurants, department stores and
resorts like Disney World. She has
earned two promotions since she
started. "We've got a good person,"
said May. "She's dependable and
learns fast We'd hire ten more like
her if she could."
Project Independence was creat-
ed in 1987 by the Florida Legislature.
The program will save $443 million in
future welfare costs over a four-year
period, and it can save Florida
businesses untold dollars in recruit-
ment and training costs.

Florida is the first large state to'
allow parents to obtain Social Security
cards for newborns when birth
registration information is submitted.
Florida Department of Health and
Rehabilitative Services (HRS) Secre-
tary Gregory L. Coler said the new
free service, which starts this month,
will save busy parents the time and
effort of later visiting a Social
Security office to present evidence to
secure a Social Security number for
Parents are seeking Social Secur-
ity numbers for their children at an
earlier age to establish savings
accounts, purchase savings bonds, or
to apply for other government bene-

to show Social Security numbers for
dependents age five years or older on
federal, tax returns.
The new program was successful-

"I needed someone who was
bi-lingual and who could work in a
high stress environment," she said. A
Project Independence trainer sent her
Frances Sheppard. "I knew nothing
about Project Independence before I
hired Frances. All I knew and cared
about was her education, could she
work odd hours and was she bi-lin-
gual. I was frantic to fill this position -
I hired her and she's doing fine."
Project Independence graduates
are working as secretaries, data entry
clerks, correctional officers, horticul-
turalists and truck drivers.
Skilled welfare recipients begin
job hunting immediately. The unpre-
pared are tested to determine their
educational and skills levels. Some
individuals attend literacy or training
programs through the Job Training
Partnership Act (JTPA), private
industry councils or local vocational-
ly piloted last year in New Mexico,
Iowa and Indiana, but Florida is the
first large state to participate. The
175,000 births a year'in the Sunshine
state exceeds the combined total of
the pilot states.
"Under this new one-stop ser-
vice," Coler said, "when parents
complete the birth registration form
they can indicate if they want a Social
Security card issued to the child.
"If so, the HRS Vital Statistics
office will send their request electron-
ically to the Social Security Adminis-
tration and the card will be issued
The card should arrive 10 to 12
weeks after the. birth, officials said.
Florida participation in the new
program, authorized by the Legisla-
ture, necessitated only a minor

: The free personnel services that
Project Independence can offer' a
business are extensive. When Sharon
Henderson, HRS Employment Spe-
cialist in DeFuniak Springs, noticed a
new sign announcing the future site of
a Western Sizzlin' Steak House she
called the Chamber of Commerce to
make contact with management,.
Before ground was broken, she
had agreed to advertise, prescreen,
contact prospects, set up interviews
and secure contracts for training with
the local private industry council..
Henderson even provided interview
space. "The need was there, we took it
and ran with it," she recalls.
Through Henderson, Western Siz-
zlin' hired 22 people including 1i
former welfare recipients. Tax bene-
fits and 50 percent training wage
subsidies were obtained, and TRADE
repaid an additional $1.10 per hour of
six employees during training. One
ex-welfare recipient has taken food
management courses and advanced to
luncheon buffet chef.
Project Independence is proving
that people on welfare want to work.
The program has exceeded its goal of
placing 28,000 people in jobs its first
year despite the fact that it's the best
kept secret in town.
t Cooperation and coordination are
the keys to its success. HRS Secretary
Coler says, "This is the finest
example of inter-governmental coop-

A result of a joint effort between'
IFAS and Richard Patterson of the
USDA-Agricultural Research Service,
the innovative' produtii contain fen-
oxycarb and diflubenzuron, Koehler
said. They will be initially marketed
to the pest control industry under the
trade names of Torus and Dimilin.
"These chemicals have the poten-
tial to revolutionize the pest control
industry. Studies show they are a
thousand times more effective than
any flea pesticide used now, and they
are the first to give long-lasting
control outdoors," the IFAS Entomol-
While mot flea products require
monthly applications and break down
quickly in tle sun, those containing
these new chemicals last up to four
months indoors and up to five months
outside, said Koehler. This long-term
residual effect can help pest control
companies provide an effective ser-
vice and can save consumers money.
"And because they affect the
insect's hormonal balance, they are
potentially safer to humans and
animals than many pesticides cur-
rently used," Koehler said.
Most flea controls work by
affecting the insect's central nervous
system. Insect growth regulators,
however, influence the hormone pro-
duction system of the biting pest,
which differs from the systems of all
warm-blooded animals. The one
chemical attacks insects in their
juvenile stage of development and the
other prevents the formation of an
outer skeleton, Koehler said.
Over-the-counter foggers, hand-
held sprays and yard products
containing the growth regulators wiff
be available in time for next spring's
flea season, Koehler predicts. Incor-
porating the new products into pet
shampoos and daily pills furthers the
possibility of a flealess future.
"These two products are going to
completely change flea control, but

they're just the tip of the iceberg. Five

Kidney Disease Can be Prevented
It is important to know about
kidney diseases a leading health
problem in America today. More than
13 million Americans suffer from
diseases of the kidney and urinary
tract. Kidney disease is the direct
cause of 78,000 deaths per year and a
leading cause of lost work time and
Kidneys are the twin organs in our
bodies that perform certain vital,
life-maintaining functions. The kid-
neys clean waste materials and
excess fluids from our blood, filter the
blood, retaining some compounds,
excreting others, and help regulate
blood pressure and red blood cell
Prevention is as important as
treatment in many forms of kidney
disease. High blood pressure or
hypertension can be both a cause and
a consequence of renal disease. There
are two reasons why physicians are
concerned with the kidney, hyperten-
sion and its management. Timely
diagnosis and treatment of hyperten-
sion can often prevent or stop the
progression of renal disease. Diabetes
is another disease which may cause

disease from developing by drinking
lots of fluids (acidic beverages like
cranberry juice), urinating frequently
'and after intercouse. Early treatment
of urinary tract infections will prevent
kidney disease from developing.
The most severe type of disorder
is kidney (renal) failure. This results
when kidneys are so diseased or
damaged from injury that they can no
longer function. In addition to dis-
eases mentioned earlier, damage to
kidney function may occur as a result
of the use of some drugs, solvents, etc.
In addition, abnormalities of the
urinary tract present at birth may
lead to poor function, obstruction or
chronic infection. When your kidneys
fail, your body does not excrete
enough water, salt and other sub-
stances. The volume of water increa-
ses and tissues swell. Without special-
ized treatment, the composition of
body fluids changes steadily until it
becomes so abnormal that death may
Many kidney diseases can be
successfully treated in early stages
but may be potentially fatal if
neglected. Knowledge of the warning
signs of kidney disease is vital to all of
us. They include puffiness around the
eyes (especially in children), gradual
swelling of parts of your body (often
the ankles), lower back pain just
below the rib cage, increased fre-
quency of urination or changes in
pattern of urination, problem with
urination pain or unusual sensation,
bloody or tea-colored urine and
finally, high blood pressure which
must be diagnosed by a physician.
If you have any of these symp-
toms, I urge you to see your physical
immediately. A physician must deter-
mine what the disease is and how far
it has advanced in order to outline a
program of treatment for you.
Some kidney conditions can be
cured. In other cases treatment can
relieve pain, slow down the disease
and lengthen life. Treatments include
special diets, diuretic drugs, antibio-
tics, steroids, surgery and shock
waves which break down kidney
If all other treatments fail, kidney
transplantation may be used as a last
resort treatment for complete kidney,
failure. Unfortunately, some patients
are not suited for transplants or need
more time to regain their strength
prior to surgery. Other patients must
be maintained until suitable donor
kidneys are found. In cases of
rejection or of temporary kidney
failure, the artificial kidney is vital!
The artificial kidney is a machine
that provides the "blood-washing"
which our kidneys usually perform.
The artificial kidney works on a
principal of dialysis a process that
occurs when two solutions are separ-
ated by a porous membrane. Today
some 80,000 patients receive the much
needed artificial kidney care.
To learn more about. kidney
disease, the warning signs, etc., call
