Sinking Barge Dumps Diesel
and Grease In Double Bayou
The wildlife officer said the investigation will determine whether or
not the spill was accidental or if it was caused by negligence or care-
lessness. "This will have a determining factor in the penalties if any
are levied", he said.
Penalties for oil spills can range anywhere from $1,000 to $50,000
' per day depending on the severity of the spill and the reaction by the
person or firm causing the spill.
An Apalachicola lumber mill
operator may be in serious trou-
ble with the state of Florida for
not immediately reporting an oil
spill in the Lake Wimico area dur-
ing the week end.
According to Howard Lan-
gridge of the Game and Fresh Wa-
ter Fish Commission, a barge
owned by Cairo Ingram's Bluff
g) Road Lumber company, sank in
Double Bayou, which feeds into
Lake Wimicol causing a quantity
of diesel fuel and heavy machin-
ery oil to be spilled into the bayou
threatening to get into the lake.
Langridge said the quantity of
the spill was uncertain. "A fuel
tank on the barge held 150 gal-
lons of diesel but we don't know
how much was in it. The biggest
problem is the heavy "machinery
oil and grease which went under
the water along with a piece of
machinery which was on the
barge", he pointed out.
The Wildlife Officer said In-
gram's biggest liability in the
matter was that he didn't report
the spill at once so clean-up activ-
ities could begin immediately.
"The sinking of the barge and re-
sulting oil spill was reported to us
by a fisherman who happened by
the scene and saw the oil on the
COVERS LARGE AREA
The diesel fuel was spread out
over a considerable area of the
bayou waters, but Langridge said a
little diesel fuel would go a long
ay on top of the water. "It's light
and it will spread very thin. The
diesel spill isn't so bad because it
will evaporate in time, but the
heavy grease will stay with us".
Containment of the spill was
affected Tuesday, when a boom
was put in place around the pool
of diesel oil. Clean-up of the
heavy grease was going to take
some planning and some work.
Langridge said the biggest
threat from the oil and grease was
that it could work its way into
Lake Wimico and kill fresh water
shrimp, which is the prime food
source for fish in the lake.
The spill occurred about three
miles up the bayou from the lake,
with diesel fuel covering the water
in a thin sheen for nearly two
Langridge said the Wildlife
Service is keeping an eye on the
spill to minimize the damage as
much as possible.
Meanwhile. Ingram faces pos-
sible charges for the spill, with
the worse offense being the fact he
didn't report the spill immediate-
ly. Langridge said charges could
result in fines running up to
$50,000 a day. A first degree mis-
demeanor can carry fines up to
$1,000 a day.
Tuesday, Lt. Don Barber, Sgt.
Mark Warren and Langridge of
the Wildlife Service were investi-
gating the spill and trying to get
an effective clean-up program

County Buys Compactor For North Gulf

$52,207 to purchase a solid waste
compactor for the north end of

waste to the incinerator in order
to keep up with production.
Awarded in a three part bid,
the mini compactor unit was pur-
chased from Williams Equipment
Company of Tallahassee; two
compactor containers from Truck
and Equipment Company of Do-
than, Alabama and a low boy
from MTA of Amelia Island.
In the meantime, the county'
will attempt to secure a site on
Highway 22, west of Wewahitch-
ka, to place the compactor.
Preparations will begin im-
mediately for permit applications
to convert the old Buckhorn land-
fill site into a Class III landfill to
handle construction and yard de-
bris, as well as junked appliances.
The Commission learned
Tuesday the Board of Health di-
rector has not signed the appoint-
ment of Dr. Robert Morgan to the
Gulf County Health Department
and as Gulf County's primary care
physician because the county has
put a stipulation on Dr. Morgan,
that he move his residence to Gulf
Dr. Morgan presently lives on
his sailboat in Bay county and
has agreed to move to Gulf county.
Dr. Landis Crocket, a division
manager of the Health Depart-
ment, asked the county to give his
department a letter stating an
agreement has been reached with
Dr. Morgan and the county sup-
ports his appointment.
That agreement is that Dr.
Morgan will move to Gulf county
within a year.
Commissioner Ed Creamer,
who insisted that Dr. Morgan
move to Gulf county, asked why it
would take that long. Dr. Morgan
said he would not move his sail-
boat here. 'We'll have to change
our lifestyle and, either build or
purchase a home. That will take
some time to reach a decision, but

Gulf Building In '88 Slows Down But Still Flourishes
Building activity in Gulf County for the
past year wasn't as brisk as it had been in
the past, but still there was considerable ac-
tivity recorded, according to Gulf County
Building Inspector Dewayne Manuel.
Manuel said that in spite of the depres-
sion of beach building over what it has been
during the past few years, there were still.
303 new living units permitted in the county
during 1988. Just a little over one half--
153--of these units were in-place construc-
tion while the other 150 were mobile home
permits issued in the county.
Again, as in years past, the greater per-
centage of the building was in the south Gulf
County beaches areas, with about 70 percent
of the new construction in this vicinity.
Manuel said the beach location with the
greatest construction activity was the Indi-
an Pass and Cape San Blas area. 'These are-
as are still seeing a pretty brisk construction
activity and every indication is that it will
continue for a while. Several projects are be-
ing figured on at this time and will more
than likely be built during 1989".
Manuel had this rosy picture to paint
even though he advised the County Commis-
sion recently his department will begin to
run out of money for operations early in the
MOSTLY SINGLE FAMILY
"There is a good, brisk activity in new
construction, but most of it is in the single
family dwellings, rather than the expensive
multi-family projects of the past. This is
why our total building program is experienc-
ing a slowdown. We have a lot of individual
smaller projects going on and not many of
the multi-million dollar projects of the
This was true for the most of last year,
also. Still, the 153 fixed housing units ran
up a total new construction value of some
'We have to remember that there were 75
apartment units built in Port St. Joe and We-
wahitchka this year. That means there were
78 single family dwellings built in our coun-
ty and this is a lot in a single year", the
building officer said.
Manuel said there was very little com-
mercial construction during the year, with
Rob and Peter's Restaurant near Indian Pass
and a second restaurant started near the
state park entrance on the Peninsula. Inside
the incorporated communities, Citizens
Federal' extensive remodeling in Port St.
Joe and St. Joe Papermakers Federal Credit
Union in Wewahitchka were about the ex-
tent of commercial building projects.
Mobile homes are becoming more popu-
lar in the county with permits issued for 150
in the past year. There are several areas in-
side the county where they are not allowed,
but in the area north of the Intracoastal Ca-
nal, the manufactured housing units are be-
coming more and more numerous.
Manuel estimated that 90% of the mo-
bile home permits were issued north of the
Intracoastal Canal, with the remainder be-
ing issued at Beacon Hill and St. Joe Beach.
As a contrast, some of the liveliest fixed
home construction activity is also found in
this vicinity. The Inspector said the Gulf
Aire subdivision has kept up a steady pace of
growth over the past year with a spurt of ac-
tivity being recorded in the Sea Shores sub-
division. "This subdivision is beginning to
heat up with four or five units going up right
now and more to come."
Manuel sees a continued demand for sin-
gle unit housing during the coming year. but
says he doesn't anticipate any big multi-
family projects going in to keep the building
community as excited as it has been for sev-
eral years now.
Board, since the last price change
in school lunches in 1981 the
School Food Services department
has consistently gone farther and
farther into debt. This price in-
crease is an attempt to defray or
at least minimize future losses.
Superintendent Walter Wilder
said that the Board looks at the
school lunch price each year, and
has to adjust the price to reflect
changes in the prices of food sup-

MUST PICK UP REPORT
For the first time, parents of
students of Port St. Joe Jr.-Sr.
High School must pick up their
child's report card. A special par-
ent breakfast will be held next
Tuesday morning, Jan. 17, at 7:30
a.m. to facilitate the pick up of re-
port cards. According to Walter
Wilder, Superintendent of
Schools, the report cards are now
computer print-out sheets, and
the parents are being asked to
pick up the new format of the
grading system, so that the
school staff may explain the new
system to them. If parents are un-
able to attend the breakfast, the
cards may be picked up at any
time during Tuesday up to 6 p.m.
Even though this is the first
time this method has been used
at Port St. Joe High School to dis-
tribute report cards, it isn't the
first time it has been used in the
county. Wewahitchka High
School has used this system this
year with a very positive response

Migs Weren't Out Sightseeing
It was a shock last week when it was announced our war-
planes had shot down two Libyan Migs over the Mediteranean
Sea. The action caused reactions in other parts of the world
other than the United States and Libya,
Considering the seriousness of the action, we were surprised
the shooting caused so little reaction in the third world. As this
is being written, only Libya has said harsh words about us for
the shooting, and they were expected to. Nobody else had
jumped on the bandwagon late last week to harangue the big,
bad United States.
Libya apparently fooled no one by claiming their airplanes
were merely reconnisance planes trying to see what was going
on in the Med by our navy ships. Oven the PLO wasn't fooled by
that ploy, though Libya's neighbor, Algeria, mumbled a few
words in the Libyan's defense.
But, when the pictures came on television showing the Lib-
yan planes were armed and were pursuing in a threatening
manner, it proved the Libyan representative to the UN was a
Actually, the pictures should have been convincing proof to
the world that Moammar Gadafi is a stupid mad man. It would
take a stupid mad man to pull such a trick in the first place.
No doubt Gadaft will continue with his claims of innocence
in spite of photographic evidence to the contrary, but we hardly
see how he can expect to be taken seriously.
After all, if the third world would believe that plane load of
Iranians would take off in a commercial airliner, all complete-
ly naked-the condition of the so-called victims of the inci-
dent involving another U.S. Navy ship last summer-they
should surely believe the U.S. Navy photos showing missiles
hanging under the wings of the now defunct Migs.
A Sound Government
No doubt you noticed last week that of six constitutional of-
ficers taking over their duties here in Gulf county, only one had
opposition during the recent elections. We don't really know if
that speaks well or ill of our county, that we should send five
back to their jobs for four year terms with no one opposing
So many returnees to their posts in county government does
give stability to our county. It also serves to allow those so dis-
posed, to become self satisfied with the job they are doing.
Personally, we probably have more to gain than anyone
else in Gulf county if all the candidates have an opponent at
election time, but we welcome the stability of our local govern-
ment. While we're sure there's someone, somewhere who can do
a better job, maybe, than the current officials, it tells us the
people are pretty well satisfied the current crop is doing a job
which is about as much as anyone can expect.
We're sure we're all dissatisfied at times with some of our
public officials, but for the most part, they do a credible job of
governing our county. We don't have all we want and we proba-
bly pay more than many of us would like for some of the servic-
es we do have, but on average, we have it pretty well here in Gulf
county. Our officials don't spend most of their time fighting
with one another.
Still No911 In Force
Here we go on another year without the 911 emergency num-
ber in force in Gulf county. Nearly two years have passed by
now since this convenient and universal system was first pro-
posed and we seem to be not much nearer to having it put in
force than we were two years ago.
Actually, the County Commission is working on the project
and even recently put a few hours in on requesting some infor-
mation. We would be better satisfied if things were moving at a
faster clip, but we suppose some progress, however slow, is bet-
ter than no progress at all.
We now have a situation where Bay county, ificluding Mexi-
co Beach, has 911. Franklin county has 911. Calhoun county
has 911. Maybe, before the year is over and we move into an-
other decade, we, too, may have 911.
Our growing community of elderly need the system, as do
the younger children. Don't forget the young adults and middle
aged, either. If you were to have to call the Gulf county Sheriffs
office, the Ambulance Service, the fire department-any of the
nine in the county-either police department or any other
emergency service; what number would you call?
If we had 911 in force, you could save yourself some anxious
moments and possibly your life by simply dialing 911 for any
of the emergency services mentioned.

FRIDAY OF LAST week, it was
difficult to remember that it was
January here in Northwest Flori-
da. With temperatures flirting in
the 80's, winter seemed to be far
removed from Gulf county. I tell
you, it's tough, living in Florida
during the winter time.
Actually, the current winter
season served to help me come to a
conclusion about a young man
here in our business world. I al-
ways thought Rick Lamberson
was a bright young man until the
Christmas season just passed

Rick bundled up his family,

and took off for northern Wiscon-
of that station wagon for north-
ern Wisconsin, he aimed it for an
island in the middle of a frozen
lake in northern Wisconsin.
People up there wondered
what he was doing in northern
Wisconsin during the dead of win-
ter, when he could have stayed in
Florida and kept warm.
Rick wondered that himself,
when he headed home and got

taught me something else, too. It
taught me that no matter how in-
tent one is on losing a pound or
two, he had just as well forget all
about those good intentions when
I have started on a quiet but
determined low-key campaign to
take off a pound or two. Nothing
drastic, like a 1,000 calorie a day
regimen or cutting out all sweets
and bread or anything else which
takes more will power than I have
ever had; especially when it comes
to enjoying good food.
I DIDN'T MAKE a.new year's
resolution to take off some of that
extra weight, like some folks did.
Over the course of time, I will take
it oil, but I'm afraid if I had re-
solved to do so, it would never
have gotten done. The resolution
would have been broken before
the sun went down on January

but they'll be kept!"

made this year is to resolve not to

I KNOW I NEEDED to make
some resolutions. It might help
my outlook, my temperament, my
congeniality, my habits and my
disposition, but somehow, I feel if
a person has to resort to making
resolutions to do what he ought to
be doing all the time, anyhow, the
resolutions are just so much wast-
one of my brothers, when ne was
small, was bad to suck his thumb.
He'd sit down, get comfortable or
sleepy and that thumb would pop
into his mouth and he'd go to
town on it. While he was pulling
on the thumb of one hand, his
other hand would float to the top
of his head and he'd twist a shock
of his hair while he was keeping
time, sucking on that thumb.
Momma tried everything to
get him to stop sucking his
thumb. She threatened, cajoled,
bribed, whipped, rewarded, prom-
ised and fainted, but he still
sucked that thumb and twisted
Momma would catch my
brother wanting something real
bad, like being first to get to lick
the cake batter pan the next time
she mixed one up. Or maybe he
placed it on a pan, sprinkled it
with sugar and stuck it in the
oven. She would promise to give
him first lick at the bowl or the
largest piece of crust, if he would
just stop sucking that thumb for a
Every time he would sit or lie
down, that thumb would pop into
his mouth, even though he would
have dearly loved to have first
lick at the cake batter pan.
Making resolutions are about
like that thumb sucking. When
my brother decided to stop suck-
ing that thumb, he quit. No
amount of urging made him do it
before he was ready.
Resolutions will be kept when
we get ready and no amount of
pledging will make any difference
in the matter.

My Dad went to see Charlie to
"set it right". Mr. Scarbrough didWi't
feel that it was his fault. He was
sorry but there was nothing he
could do. It.was just a tough
break. My Dad started around the
desk and Charlie went out the
back door. I was only five or six,
and didn't see this, but people
still tell me about Daddy chasing
Charlie Scarbrough down High-
way 79 toward Milan. I do know
Dad wrote him off.

green 1960 Chevrolet. Great car
but it didn't have a radio. Listen,

Dad for a radio and as he was
leaving for a trip he told Mom to
get us one. He got home, pushed .a

it. There was only one car dealet-

all the way over to Huntingdon
where Dad bought the car and
Pug Vickers put us in a radio.
Now, I'm proud to say that
there's a little bit of my Father in
me. And let me tell you about
some people that I have written
off- Col. Moammar Gadhafi, Yas-
ser Arafat and Ayatollah Khomei-
ni. I don't know a thing about Lib-
ya, Iran or the P.L.O. But they
couldn't be too smart to follow the
likes of these three Idiots. The
scary part is they've got a lot more
power and influence than Charlie
Scarbrough. People actually lis-
ten to those guys and I've got it on
good authority that there's a few
who believe what they say.
Khomeini raises his arms and
everybody chants 'YA-A, AW-A,
WA-A, YA-YA-A," which, I think.
translates into. "Let's capture
some more American journalists."
When Khomeini isn't out front
with his hands up he's in the back

into Grand Central Station.

we've got people who should have

about Mary Bea Porter? Who you

golfer who at a tournament in
Phoenix last March hooked a shot
over by some houses. When she

down in a swimming pool. She
climbed a seven foot fence and

him breathing again. There are
plenty of heroes around who de-

one of them. I've got some friends

Recycling Glass Is
An Easy Fund Raiser
Raising money for a worthy
cause doesn't have to involve ask-
ing for money. That's the message
from the Southeast Glass Recy-
cling Program--an organization
promoting recycling of glass and
other materials as a sensible and
necessary part of solid waste
Executive Director David Bak-
er says "many non-profit organi-
zations may not have thought
about recycling as a fundraiser
but it's an excellent way to get the
entire community involved." The
Southeast Glass Recycling Pro-
gram has published an events
planning guide entitled "Fund-
raising Through Recycling." The
publication includes ideas for
events and activities as well as
pointers for successful school
"Many Keep America Beauti-
ful programs have successfully
used recycling as a way to gener-
ate funds, educate the public, and
help reduce the flow of solid
waste," according to Baker. "In
addition, we're seeing an increas-
ing involvement in recycling."
Organizations interested in
establishing a glass recycling
project should contact the South-
east Glass Recycling Program at
P.O. Box 5951, Clearwater, FL
34618. The Southeast Glass Re-
cycling Program is non-profit.

pose hardwood leaves. Nobody In
a their right mind would rake wet
leaves if they had a choice, so you
a might have to add water to the
L. leaves after they're bagged and
e place in an out-of-the-way shady
I place in your yard.
I Shade is necessary because
the sun could cause the leaves to
o deteriorate before spring and the
n bags would break and slow the
g decomposition. And adding water
e before you place them in their fi-
nal resting place will make .the .
a bags heavy and hard to. move.
V Shake the bags to circulate the -
0 water, drain the excess and seal
It Isn't necessary but adding'
a cup of inexpensive fertilizer -
8-8-8 or 10-10-10 -- before put-
ting the water in the bags will'
make the leaves decompose fast-
By spring, the leaves should
be fairly decomposed and can be
worked into vegetable gardens,
flower gardens or into planting
holes for trees and shrubs. By
composting your leaves you have
not only recycled natural materi-
al to feed your trees and plants,
you've avoided adding to the dis-'
posal problem facing many cities
in getting rid of the tons of leaves
and pine needles collected every
year by homeowners.

will have its first full time health
department doctor. Dr. Morgan

aware of the need for organs, said
they were motivated-to action af-

million Floridians -- about 10
percent of the 10.5 million li-

signed donor cards, according to

Medical advances have made
transplantation a successful
form of therapy for many diseas-

the donation or organs a simple
Federal legislation was
passed in 1984 to ensure that or-
gan sharing is fair. When organs
are donated, a national system
helps distribute them where they

We Are Concerned
With Your Health
JAN. 12, 1988
The dispensing of a prescription medicine is much
more than an ordinary transaction. A doctor has
determined that a specific drug will help a person with
an illness and he has given careful instructions as to the
name and strength of the drug, the amount to be taken,
and for how long it should be used.
As your pharmacist, we have translated these
instructions and from them prepared your medicine.
Often, we must give you additional information as to
storing the prescription, possible side effects, possible
reactions with other products and other cautions.
"A GREAT MANY PEOPLE ENTRUST US with their
prescriptions, health needs and other pharmacy products.
We consider this trust a privilege and a duty. May we be

both teams on their feet for most

the Sharks at several points in

We get to make a lot of choic-
es for ourselves in this life. Some
choices are really helpful, like
studying hard and learning useful
information. But others hurt us,
like deciding to drink alcohol
when we are too young.
How do people go about the
decision making process? Most of
us probably learn our decision
making habits from our parents.
That may be why children of
smokers are the next generation
of smokers. It also accounts for
the fact that children of college
graduates most often seek higher
We start making decisions
while we are still babies. We de-
cide whether or not to eat a cer-
tain food, or come when we are
called, or to destroy a magazine
or not. These kinds of decisions
are mostly controlled by an exter-
nal stimulus. Food is accepted or
rejected on the basis of tempera-
ture, texture, taste and presenta-
tion. We learn to come when we
are rewarded, but we run away if it
is a game or if there is something
unpleasant ahead. Babies tear up
magazines to hear the sound and
experience the sensation, but
they soon stop if they are pu-
When we become adults we
continue to make decisions for.
the same reasons. It is easier to
do things the same way we always
have than it is to work through a
process and reason things out for
ourselves. Therefore we find our-
selves with the same successes
and failures our parents experi-
enced. And, like babies, we often
make so called "gut" decisions.
That is why check out counters
are lined with periodicals and im-
pulse items, and that's why new
cars are made to look and smell
the way they do.
I would like to suggest that
most of us could do a lot better.
God has given us perfectly good
brains, and he wants us to put
them to use. The best decisions
are based on God-given reason
and truth, not on habit and "gut"
Good decisions start with the
consideration of all the available
facts. The second step is to find
out what other people have done
in similar situations. The third
factor is to seek expert and im-
partial third person opinions. But
the most important thought is
this, "How does this fit in with my
understanding of God's purpose
. for my life."
If more people would practice
this sort of decision.making there
- would be a lot more deaths from
natural causes. A lot fewer di-
vorces, and not so many women
living with abusive husbands.
As a pastor, I find that much
of my time is spent helping peo-
ple reconstruct their lives. A lot of
what I try to do is centered on
helping people learn to make
better decisions. In most cases,
with God's help, those who seek
this kind of assistance make
If you have made some bad
decisions that are causing you
pain, don't give up. You can
change and your circumstances
God loves you. And if you will
work on it, He will help you make

Ellis Speaks to Rotary Club
With Message for the New Year
Trying to figure out what is
going to happen in the new year is
an exercise in futility for hu-
mans, Rev. Sid Ellis told the Ro-
tary Club Thursday. Ellis, a for-
mer pastor at St. James Episcopal
Church and a former member of
the club, advised the club mem-
bers the future is in the hands of
God and only God knows what it
'The only things which we
can be sure about for'the future I's
that people will continue to be
born, they will continue to mate
and they will continue to die-

'We all want the best for our-
selves and for our families", Ellis
said. He said we tend to depend on
horoscopes, fortune tellers, luck,
etc. 'We can know that things will
be worthwhile for the future if we
keep the faith that God will ar-,
range the future as He wants it to'
The speaker said we tend to
substitute for the. real things of.
life. 'We substitute even for God in

Using the story of his own
life, Ellis graphically told how

God guided him into making the

In several instances in his
past life, Ellis explained how a

Now Is the Ideal Time to
Plant Trees and Shrubs
By Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Agent
Now is the ideal time for
major tree and shrub planting.
There is no substitute for a well-
planned landscape where materi-
als are carefully selected and
then properly planted.
Make a careful study, prior to
selecting plants, to obtain the
best possible plants for your
needs. Consider these items in
selecting plants -- surface and in-
ternal drainage, sun and shade
requirements, ultimate size of the
plants, the relation of one plant
to another in regards to form, tex-
ture and color and seasonal in-
terest (color of foliage, fruit, flower
and branching characteristics).
For the home, do not over
plant. Remember plants properly
cared for will not be static in the
yard. They will grow taller, spread
and fill in spaces that might seem
at first to be under planted.
Consider the size of house
and property. Large overpowering
plants dwarf the size of the prop-
erty and take up usable space for
outdoor living besides becoming
a problem from the maintenance
Unity is an essential element
of a well-designed landscape
which can be achieved with a
proper balance of simplicity, con-
trast and scale.
A properly planned land-
scape lessens the temptation, to
add those odd pieces of plant ma-
terial which one often finds on
sale or receives from well-
intentioned friends. As good as
intentions are, those unplanned
plants are a common nemesis to
unity in the landscape.
Simplicity does not mean
monotony. Rather, it is variety
without confusion. A large variety
of plant materials can result in a
Select areas for special con-
centration rather than spreading
your efforts over too great an
area. Purchase only those plants.
that are strong and healthy. It
does not pay to sacrifice quality
