Game Commission officer, Howard Langridge, and
James Kent, Sr., stand behind the record Florida gator


James Kent, Sr., operator of Kent's Fur Company of High-
land View, is also a registered alligator trapper for the Florida
Game and Fish Commission. Sunday night, he must have had
serious considerations for giving up his sideline, when he met a
14 foot monster near Bay City fish camp on the Apalachicola
River where he had been called to dispatch a gator which had
become a nuisance to the area.
When Kent and his son, James Kent, Jr., arrived on the
scene, they began calling the gator and doing what gator hunt-
ers normally do when they go to hunting gators.
This monster answered the call and turned out to be a
record in size for gators- captured in Florida waters. The reptile
measured 14 feet from tail tip to teeth. That's a lot of gator and
to be truthful, the Kents didn't "trap" him. They "dispatched"
him before loading him into their boat and bringing the animal
back to their place of business at Highland View.
Jimmy Mosconis, operator of Bay City, complained to the
Game and Fish Commission that the gator had become a nui-
sance to his customers at the fish camp. He was coming closer

taken by Kent and his son from the Bay City area near Ap-
alachicola Sunday night.

The 14 foot, 714 pound monster was a
record size alligator to be taken from Florida
waters, according to the Florida Game and Fish
Commission records. The gator was estimated
to have been 100 years old.

and closer to get to the leavings from cleaning fish or anything
else which fell into the water. Mosconis was fearful someone
may fall in the water and the gator might not be able to discern
whether or not the person, dog, cat, child, whatever, was edible
or not.
The huge gator weighed 714 pounds and was killed with a
.44 magnum bang stick.. The animal was estimated to be about
100 years old. His teeth were worn down and missing and the
reptile was growing a new set.
Kent said he would keep the animal frozen for a while.
"Somebody may want to get him mounted,"-he said.

Senator Vince Bruner said
Tuesday of this week, there were
some good things to come out of
the recent session of the Florida
Legislature for Gulf County.
Of primary importance to
Gulf County was the approval of
the Spaceport Florida Act, which
will give the County a sub-orbital
rocket launch facility for the
Cape San Bias area, on property
currently occupied by the Air
Force in its tracking operation
leased to the Vitro Corporation.
According to Bruner the act
was passed, specifically allocat-
ing money to fund the entry of
Florida into commercial space op-
erations. As of Wednesday morn-
ing, the only obstacle which
might stand in the way of the
project getting off the ground,
was the Governor's signature on
the budget bill. The spaceport
program is a special project of
Governor Bob Martinez and is ex-
pected to draw his approval.
The freshman Senator said
the project should be vital to the
economy of Gulf County in pro-
viding future jobs in the commu-
nity. While the launch site, itself,
isn't expected to provide many
new jobs, the users of the facility
are expected to be attracted to
the area with their testing labora-
The main launch site for orbi-
tal space probes will be located
near Cape Canaveral and the
sub-orbital launch site at Cape
San Bias, using launching foun-
dations already In place.
The Spaceport location for
Gulf County was a target for the
Port St. Joe-Gulf County Cham-
ber of Commerce, ever since the
concept was first proposed by
Governor Martinez. Florida will
be competing with other nations,
primarily France, in operation of

a commercial space port for test-
ing and research on commercial
Bruner said Gulf County also
received $25,000 for development
of Salinas Park at Dead Man's
Curve, $25,000 for a new board-
walk at Willliam J. Rish State
Park and an appropriation of
$125,000 for continued opera-
tional expenses for the park
which serves the facilities caring
for disabled people in the state.

Nod Given

Fuel Tax
Wewa Hearing Offers
No Opposition to Plan
Wewahitchka apparently has
approved the concept of a motor
fuels tax for Gulf County for use
on paving and rebuilding roads in
the county.
A public hearing Tuesday af-
ternoon in the north Gulf county
city failed to generate any opposi-
tion at all. The Wewahitchka
hearing was the second of three
which the County Commission
has scheduled to air public feel-
ings toward the six cent tax. The
third and final hearing will be
held Tuesday evening in a special
session by the Board.
The regular meeting of the
Board is to be held Tuesday
morning at 9:00 a.m., with sever-
al hearings scheduled for the
morning session. The special ses-
sion, called for the specific pur-
pose of holding part of seven
public hearings scheduled for
Tuesday, will begin at 4:00 p.m.,
and will be high-lighted by the
motor fuel tax final hearing,
scheduled to begin at 6:00 p.m.

St. Joe Starts Making Study of Street Needs

structed streets superintendent,
Martin Adkison, to begin a survey
of City streets, including the
Ward Ridge area, for paving
Mayor Frank Pate remarked
Tuesday night, "It appears as if
the. gasoline tax ordinance is go-
ing to be approved with little to
no opposition and we want to be
in accord as to which of our
streets are in the worst need of
In a discussion of the board,

they agreed there was a need for
special attention to several
streets in North Port St. Joe and
a few in the southern portion as

newer developments are getting

The motor fuels tax was ini-
tiated by the City Commission as
a remedy for the rapidly declining
condition of streets all over the
county and especially in the in-
corporated areas where no reve-

new paving.

Rev. Baxter Coming to

First Methodist Church

First United Methodist
Church of Port St. Joe will wel-
come their new pastor, Rev. Ze-
doc Baxter, Sunday, when he
preaches his first sermon in the
local church. Rev. Baxter and his
wife, Frances, will be replacing
Rev. Ennis Sellers, who has been
transferred by the Methodist
Church to Mobile, Alabama.
Baxter and his wife are both
natives of Alabama, he from Mill-
ry and she from Greensboro.
They have two sons, three daugh-
ters and six grandsons.
The new minister is a gradu-
ate of Livingston State University,
Asbury College and attended
Candler School" of Theology at
Emory University.
For the past five years, Bax-
ter has served as pastor of the Li-
vingston United Methodist
Church and director of the Wes-
ley Foundation at the University.
-The new pastor has been very
civic minded wherever he has
held pastorates, being especially
active with volunteer fire depart-
ments, ambulance services, po-
lice departments and was chap-
lain for the Livingston Police
Department. He has been actively
involved in ecumenical activities,
and has served as president of
both the Livingston Inter-Faith
Council and the Sumter county

Ministerial Association.
Rev. Baxter has also served
In many positions within the Ala-
bama-West Florida Conference of
the Methodist Church.
The Baxters are scheduled to
arrive in Port St. Joe today,
Thursday, June 8, to begin ser-
vice in his new pastorate.
The church will be holding a
reception for Rev. and Mrs. Bax-
ter Sunday, June 11, following
the morning worship service and
issues an invitation to everyone
to come meet the Baxters.

The Commission had a night
of big spending Tuesday night, as
invoices for current projects un-
der construction were due for
partial payments and three new
projects were bid off.


In new projects, the Commis-
sion approved a bid of $300,000
to I.-C.. Contractors of Panama
City to install a new 42-inch
forced main pipeline from the
Highway 98 collection station to
the Wastewater Treatment Plant.

I.-C.'s bid was one of four re-
ceived, ranging up to $460,000.
A pre-construction confer-
ence must be held with I.-C.,
with construction probably to be-
gin within 30 to 45 days.
The line will replace the 15-

year-old line which burst recent-
ly, causing a need for costly re-

W. C. Bridge Draws Traffic To A Halt

The drawbridge over the In-
tracoastal Waterway at White
City decided to call a halt to its
running up and down Thursday
afternoon of last week and, in the
process, halted water and land
traffic for what seemed to be an
interminable amount of time to
those waiting to drive over the
bridge, or guide their boats
through the channel under the

Transportation maintenance di-
rector, Freddy Branch, the bridge

tion Thursday afternoon at 2:39
p.m., and remained open for bet-
ter than an hour before it could
be closed, allowing vehicle traffic
to proceed on Highway 71 again.
"Our investigation showed
that a rewind reel broke while the
bridge was up, causing an electr-
ric wire to the controls to short
out and the bridge span could
not be moved. We got it closed by
manually cranking it down."
The span was open until
3:49, when traffic again proceed-
ed across the lift span.
But, after the span was back
in place for vehicle traffic, it was
then stuck for marine traffic. The
bridge could not be opened again
for marine traffic until repairs
were made.
"We got the bridge fully oper-
able again at 4:00 a.m., Friday

downs over the past two or three
years. All of that will soon be in
the past, however, as the draw-
bridge is scheduled to be re-
placed with an in-place high-rise
bridge sometime in 1991.
The Florida Department of
Transportation is scheduled to

open bids on construction of the
new bridge around early Septem-
ber. Work will probably begin
around the first of 1990 with a
little more than a year needed to
complete the project.
The White City bridge will be
the second of three high-rise

bridges scheduled to be built in
Gulf County. The first of the
three was finished at Overstreet
the first of January, this year.
The third bridge will be a 75-foot
high-rise span at Highland View,
which is scheduled to begin con-
struction sometime in 1991.

It's Our Right

We're flabbergasted over the reaction to a proposal by the
ministers of Gulf County that liquor sales be made illegal in
our county on Sunday. Most of the reactions are that those
who support the closing of Sundays to the sale Of booze have
no right to suggest such a thing. It appears as if those who
want to maintain the status quo seem-to think they ate the
only ones who should be allowed to determine what goes on in
OUR county in this matter.
This type objection ranges all the way from an editorial In
last Sunday's Panama City News-Herald. to expressions made
by individual citizens some of whom do not live in Gulf
The owners and publishers of the News-Herald are some. of
those who do not live in Gulf County and have no right to stick
their pen in our business. It's all right if they tell us what they
would support in Bay County, but- here in Gulf County, our,
people have the right, privilege and-good sense to guide our
own destinies even if we should decide to continue allowing
the Sunday booze sales.
And, lest there be any mis-understanding, Port St. Joe min-
isters aren't the only ones supporting this change in Sunday
sale. laws. Most of the ministers all over the county are in-
volved. There are a few who are not, but their number is few
and very far removed from the movement.
It was a Port St. Joe minister who spoke before the County
Commission recently regarding the matter of taking the ques-
tion before the people on the ballot, but that minister was
speaking for the greater majority of ministers and churches
throughout the county.
Even if the particular minister were speaking only for minis-
ters inside the city of Port St. Joe, let us point out that Port St.
Joe is part of Gulf County; that Port St. Joe contains nearly
half the population of Gulf County; that Port St. Joe people pay
a considerable amount of county taxes.
That is a common error, though. Port St. Joe has had to tol-
erate being considered as not part of the county for years. But,
really, we live in Gulf County, also, and have just as much
right to input on county decisions as someone, one who lives

Money Can't Buy...

Two veteran Congressmen left their posts in Washington,
D.C. last week, but under entirely different circumstances.
One left in a blaze of glory and one was being drummed out
in shame. Both will not be back, after having long careers as
two of the premiere leaders of our national government.
Congressman Jim Wright finally tendered his resignation
after his fellow Congressmen tsk, tsk'd his ethical conduct for
the past several years. Wright had used his seat in national
government to boost his fortunes, gain favored consideration in
several financial deals which wouldn't be expected to accrue to
a person under normal circumstances, and generally used his
position to enrich himself.
Claude Pepper, on the other hand, served considerably
longer than Wright had served, but had been equally as zeal-
ous as Wright in using his power, with the exception that Pep-
per.used his position and the power of his office to benefit his
constituents. Pepper was the unquestioned champion of the
elderly and those who couldn't help themselves.
There were those who didn't agree with Pepper's way of do-
ing things and there were many who did agree. Pepper didn't
please all people in all things he did during his long career in
public office; a career which was longer than the lives of many
people. He was the last of the New Dealers, so his position ei-
ther stirred intense loyalty and support or fanatical opposition.
When Wright was drummed out of office in a blaze of shame
rather than glory last week, legions were glad to see him go. ..
even some of his friends.
When Pepper died last week, there were eulogies of respect
and praise for a long career of service from friends and enemies
The difference is that Pepper was honest and concerned
with his actions. He had a set of ethics far above those set by
Congress and he lived with integrity. When we die or retire or
abandon our career, we would much rather be remembered like
Pepper than like Wright. -Money still can't buy the best things
in life.

Father's Oldsmobile

Jim Bob tightened his grip on
the wheel. "Aren't we having fun."
I couldn't tell if it was a ques-
tion or a statement. We had
turned off.the old Paris highway,
gone down the Hinkledale Road,
and were now cruising along the
dirt trail that led to the clay pits.
"I thought we were going to
circle the town square, and then
wheel out to the Dairy Bar?" Mary
E. Pendleton whined from the
back seat.
Why did we have to bring her
along? She could be a complete
idiot sometimes. Shucks, we had
taken .a pretty big chance stop-
ping for gas at Tommy Hill's DX.
But it was Just our luck. Jim Bob
"borrows" his father's car and the
dang thing is near about out of
gas. What I couldn't believe was
Yogi putting that ketchup on his

arm and hiding in the trunk.
"Did ya'll see the look on Mr.
Tommy's face. when he saw that
bloody arm. hanging out the
back?" LaRenda repeated -for the
umpteenth time.
We all got to laughing again.
Mr. Tommy's OK. Plus, he's been
on that corner pumping hi-test
since, I guess, forever. He's seen
it all. And he knows Yogii s about
half nuts. After the initial shock,
when he got both feet back on the'
ground, he even lifted the trunk
and helped Yogi out. Yes sir, Mr.
Tommy had been watching the
town youngun's grow up for
years. Of course, he might not
a'thought it quite as funny if he'd
known his youngest daughter,'
Jane, was carefully hidden in the
floor board in the back seat.
We paid him the two dollars,

which was all the money we had
among us and headed out. We
were going to have some fun!
"Hey, Jim Bob, you don't
reckon Mr. Tommy will tell your
father?" Ricky voiced what I was
"Naw, besides, he doesn't
know how old we are."
"He knows how old June is
and we're all in the same class."
Mary E. again.
I was fifteen that summer.
And if I remember right Jim Bob
was a couple of months younger
than me.
"Is it safe?" Jane stuck her
head up in the back. Now, she
wasn't taking any chances-we
were two miles out of town. That
was one of the beauties of your
father's Oldsmobile. You could

Bob "borrowed" it on short notice.
Me, Ricky, Yogi and Jim Bob were
in the front. LaRenda, Jane, Mary

the back. Shoot, Mary E. took up

of room.

brings its rewards and I have ap-
parently started the summer off
If you ask my latest grandson
if I am on the right track with
this summer thing, he will vouch
for my actions and give his stamp
of approval.
I 'told you the other week
ab6ut his greeting for his five-
year-old second cousin from Min-
nesota, so you already know A.J.
has a knack about him in know-
ing the proper response to a giv-
en situation; especially with fe-
male relatives.
While they were visiting, the
mothers of A.J. and Jessica put
them in the bathtub together to
bathe them off after a trip to the
beach. A.J.'s reaction to that lit-
tle episode is another story and
best related in privacy. His reac-
tion wasn't chauvinist, or any-

You would understand, from
this incident, that A.J. has a
knack of asserting himself which
is unique and expresses his feel-
ings in a manner which leaves no
guesswork to be involved.

I TELL YOU all this to let you
know that no less an authority
on the correct thing to do than
grandson A.J., has approved of
my grasp of the needs of summer
living. He has done this in -Just
the past few days, all of which
convinces me I am right on track
in my choice of activities.
It's always nice to have your
activities, noticed, but it's better,
still, to be identified as being
right on track and not wandering
around somewhere out in left
field or going off on a tangent.
It's more than satisfying to
have your activities observed and
given the seal of approval by

day activities.
When one gets into summer,
he should have a grasp of which
things are real and which things
should be left alone during the
summer time. For instance, one
wouldn't think of asking for a
bowl of chili in the 90 degree
summers of the Florida Panhan-
dle when he had ice cold water-:
melon available. I say this be-
cause we are beginning tosee the
advent of watermelon on the
scene of things here in Gulf
County. The ones I see in the su-
per markets are still not much
more than the size of knots, but
the real watermelons are not far

father were cooling it in the

You see, we both thought we
knew just-the thing to do with a
warm Sunday afternoon, while-
the sun was beating down and
while the watermelons were ri-
pening in the field
But, we only half grasped
what was important and- satisfy-
ing in the situation at hand.
There were A.J., and Jessica,
romping around and sweating,
when A.J. sauntered over to me
and said, 'Turn the water on,
He always says, "Pleasel"
I told him to go in the house
and get a drink of ice water and
not to be drinking out of the wa-
ter hose.
Well, I just didn't understand
simple directions. 'Turn the wa-
ter on, please!" came the request
once again.
After a few more exchanges of

the water sprinkler, it finally
sunk into my thick skull that
A.J. wanted the water sprinkler
on. Since we have an under-
, ground sprinkler system, of sorts,
I figured A.J. wanted to show his
second cousin some of the won-
ders of people who have water
shooting up out of the ground.
I got up and turned -the water
on and A.J. dove in, coaxing his.
dainty female second cousin to
follow him into the water spray,
clothes and all. It didn't take any
time before that little female Yan-
kee learned the pleasures of play-
ing under a water sprinkler in the
90 degree Florida sunshine. It
was quite different from a sprink-
ling he had given her earlier.
Those two little-kids darted in
and out of that sprinkler all after-
noon long. You would have
thought I invented sprinkling wa-

day, but I'll tell you, they had a

in my lap, lean back against me
and look up, intoning, "Come

likely remain with him for the en-
tire summer and he'll likely come

time he pays a visit, as long as

Who knows, if fit gets much
hotter, I Just may screw up
enough courage to Join him un-

Test Taking
Test taking has never been one of my favorite things to do. I
once failed a blood test.
It has been a long time since I have had to study for a test.
I'm not referring to a driver's license test; I'm talking big time,
late at night oil burning, read 'till your eyeballs are flaming red,
do or die studying.
The last time I had to study that hard was my last night be-
fore my last final in college. I made it but I still don't know how.
For about the last four weeks I have been studying for a very
important test. Two of them, as a matter of fact, and I'm sched-
uled to take them Monday and Tuesday of next week in Talla-
hassee. The one I take Monday Will determine how my life will be
progressing on Tuesday, when I take the second one. The out-
come of that test will determine how I come back to Port St. Joe;
in my truck or in a hearse.
Younger people don't realize how well their minds grasp and
retain things. I have maintained for years that older people have
just as good a memory as younger people, but have much more
to remember. Was I wrong? Indeed I was!
Studying for these tests has proven one thing; my mind
ain't what it used to be. If I had been faced with taking these
two tests a few years ago I would have probably have started
studying about a week before and felt confident of a passing
score. As it Is, I started a month ago and I still don't have any
idea of the outcome, and probably won't until the fat lady sings.
For some reason other things keep darting in and out of my
mind while I try to study. It's things like, "how am I going to pay
the income tax?" and "what are we going to live on while I'm tak-
ing time off from work to study for these tests?" It's the small,
insignificant things that worry me and distract from my study-
It's a fact that younger people don't understand because I
told my son the difficulties I'm experiencing and he just smiled
and looked at me as if to say, "you sure make little things look
big, Dad."
Well, I've got news for himl He has to take the same tests
about three months from now and if I pass them and he fails,
there's going to be big trouble in River Cityl
However, If I fail and he passes, I might be a little more
This is one of those times when I regret not putting forth
real effort when I was in school. If I had studied hard in school,
I'm sure these tests would be of no real significance to me. Who
knows, if I had applied myself and taken the right courses, I
might have been a doctor or lawyer and not have to work for a
living. I tried to be a politician once but that didn't work out.
Studying for these tests is like a trip to the dentist's office to
me: I know I must do it, but I'll sure be glad when it's over. And
when it's over, I hope I'll never have to do it again.
Wish me luck and pray for mel

Aren't We Lucky ...

Dear Editor:
people of the CITY OF PORT ST.
JOE (situated in Gulf County) are
going to give us a hand in improv-
ing our morals. THE BACK OF
THE HAND, THAT IS. These pure,
righteous, sinless people want to
impose their value and morals on
those of us WHO LIVE IN THE
COUNTY so that we can move up
to their standards.
ERS, how many of you were at
ings to voice your opinion on the
City's Sunday Closing Law? How
many of you people WHO LIVE IN
THE COUNTY had a chance to
vote on that law? Yet, here we are
faced with the prospect of being
FORCED to follow in the foot-
steps of the CITIZENS OF THE
CITY whether we like it or not. It
would appear that the CITIZENS
OF THE COUNTY do not need our
since the good CITIZENS OF THE
CITY are doing so well by us,
SO! They certainly seem to have
dominated the County Commis-
sioners meetings on this issue.
If we are going to take a step
backward and enforce the old
"Blue" laws again, why close just
one business? Why not get every-
body in on the act? Let us go for

broke and close EVERY business
in the CITY and COUNTY. Let us
not have one single person in the
doing any work on Sunday.
If memory serves me right,
about 200 years ago there was a
war fought over the church trying
to legislate the people's rights,
and the people won OR DID
THEY? After 200 years we still
have people like Rev. Browning
trying to legislate THEIR values
on other people. Tell me Rev.
Browning, are you trying to legis-
I can't speak for yours, but mine
needs no legislation, and if they
do, I have a very willing Priest
who is more than capable of
steering me back to the right
path. When did yours or anyone
elses first name become "GOD"?
Again, if memory serves me right,
not even Jesus FORCED his val-
ues on other people, not even his
closest friends.
Now, if all, you SIPPIN'
SAINTS will just leave us SIPPIN'
SINNERS in the COUNTY alone,
stay out of COUNTY business,
and sweep off your own doorstep,
SIONERS will do your job for the
not the CITY, we ought to all get
along pretty good.:

Defends Grant's Actions

Dear Editor:
A Democratic County Com-
mitteewoman, from Port St. Joe
has written a letter criticizing our
Congressman Bill Grant because
he followed his conscience and
switched parties.
How many times does Bill
Grant have to explain that he
tried to bring the Democratic Par-
ty closer to the beliefs and values
of North Floridians, but the party
rejected and ridiculed his sugges-
Bill Grant voted with the
Democratic leadership of Jim
Wright because he wanted to
help the people of his district,
even sometimes when his conser-
vative, North Florida upbringing
*said he shouldn't.
I am convinced that after be-
ing ignored, rejected and criti-
cized by the Party for his conser-
vative beliefs, Bill Grant finally,

decided that,the Party of Michael
Djukakis, Walter Mondale and
Ted Kennedy had abandoned the
concerns of honest, hard working
Since Bill Grant changed par-
ties, he has become a member of
the Agriculture Committee and
the Select Committee on Drugs.
Agriculture is the biggest indus-
try we have and we all know that
drugs are spreading all over.
A few weeks ago, the Secre-
tary of Agriculture visited North
Florida to see first hand the prob-
lems our farmers face. I call that

Bill Grant is dedicated to
bringing opportunity to North
Florida and I know he will. He is
one of us and I want him to keep
working for us in Washington.

By Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Director
From gardening to barbecu-
ing, mosquitoes are common
spoilers of outdoor activities in
our sunshine state. They can be a
nuisance. Some mosquitoes
transmit diseases to both hu-
mans and animals- in Florida,
most noticeable encephalitis to
man and horses, and heartworms
to dogs.
Regardless of species, water
is essential for mosquito breed-
ing. Since nearly half of our
state's land area is subject to
flooding, it's no wonder that we
have so many of these persistent

where they soon will be covered
by water, or on damp soil where
they can hatch when covered by
rainwater or high tides. A single
female may lay several batches of
50 to 200 eggs. The eggs of some
flood-water mosquitoes may dry
out for more than a year and still
hatch when flooded. Once ex-
posed to water, the larvae of most
species hatch in two or three
days, change to pupae in about a
week, and emerge as adults
about two days later.
It may seem hard to believe,
but not all mosquitoes bite. Only
the females have biting mouth
parts, male mosquitoes feed on
the nectar of flowers. Female
mosquitoes also feed on nectar.
But, a blood meal usually is nec-
essary to mature the eggs. Lady
mosquitoes might be, classed as
