FPC Generation Plant Project Revived

Company Decides to

Build a New Complex
Florida Power Corporation has revived their
plans to build a new generating plant some-
where in their system and has started examin-
ing prospective sites to locate the plant, County
Attorney William J. Rish told the Gulf County
Commission Tuesday morning.
Florida Power seriously considered locating
a generating plant near White City on the Gulf
County Canal 10 years ago, when the huge en-
ergy crunch hit the nation. A subsequent ener-
gy conservation program made the need for a
new generating point not quite so critical, so
. Florida Power put the project on hold for a few
Now, according to FPC's Port St. Joe man-
ager, Mike McDonald, "Florida Power Corpora-
tion is going to build a new generation plant to
be in service in 1997 somewhere in their 32
county service area. Port St. Joe has a good
shot at getting it located here."
Rish advised the Commissioners that his
information was the plant would require 500 to
600 construction workers some three years to
build the plant which would employ approxi-
mately 150 to 200 permanent workers.
After Rish's announcement was made, the
Commission agreed to formally send Florida
Power a resolution of endorsement and pledged
to make themselves available to provide any
services a prospective generation plant would
need which fell under the jurisdiction of the
The Board instructed Dewayne Manuel to
keep them informed on the progress of the gen-
eration site selection and advise the Commis-
sion on anything they could do to help matters.
"Let's go after it!" Chairman Doug Birmingham

Gulf County Attorney, William Rish, the County Commission. Part of the Board
[center, in shirtsleeves] announces to the shown are, Jim Gortman, Nathan Peters,
Board that Florida Power has revived its in- Jr., and Chairman, Doug Birmingham. The
terest in a new power generating plant to Commission endorsed the plant.

In an early morning meeting of the Cham-
ber of Commerce Wednesday morning, McDo-
nald brought the Chamber members present
up to date on happenings in the matter.
Again McDonald stated there definitely
would be a plant built and he advised the
Chamber members not to be too complacent
about its location. 'The site has not definitely
been decided on yet, even though Florida Pow-
er has a considerable investment in site prep-
aration and permitting already here in Gulf
County. The company still has an open mind
about where the plant should be placed," he
The local manager said the new plant would
be capable of using natural gas, oil or coal as a
fuel for generating power. Presently, Port St.
Joe does not have a natural gas supply large
enough for such a plant, but the city is near
the large transmission line which carries natu-
ral gas from the Texas and Louisiana fields to
south Florida.
The new power plant will probably start off
small as power plants go, but would stand a
good chance of being doubled in size shortly af-
ter it is completed. "At that time, coal would
probably be the primary fuel used for genera-
tion," McDonald said.
The need for plenty of room for future ex-
pansion is probably a plus for Gulf County's
chances at snagging the power plant. In all
likelihood, the presence of a firm operating
here which specializes in transporting generat-
ing plant coal from the Kentucky and Illinois
coal fields is probably a plus also.
Even so, with all these plus features, McDo-
nald warned the Chamber not to be too com-
placent on securing the plant location. 'You
need to hit the ground running," he advised.

Schools Start Bright and Early Monday

Small Increase in Students, Full Faculty, Expected First Day

Summer vacation time will be
over for students and teachers in
Gulf County Schools at 7:55 a.m.
Monday morning, when the bells
will sound, taking in classes at
Port St. Joe schools.
Highland View Elementary
School classes will begin at 7:55
and Wewahitchka Elementary
School will begin at 7:55, CST
and Wewahitchka High School
starts at 7:46.
According to Temple Watson,
assistant to the Superintendent,
county schools will begin with a
full faculty of accredited teachers
and will be expecting "from 2,300
to 2,400 students" to report for
Watson said the system ex-
pects about the same census as
they ended with last year. 'We'll
probably have a few more, but
not an appreciable increase,"
Watson said.
Watson said there have been
some personnel changes made
this year because of attrition of
faculty and staff members, but
9P most of the replacements are fa-
miliar faces who have been in the

local district for some time.
Two principal changes will be
in store for students reporting for
classes Monday morning.
In Wewahitchka, Larry
Mathes, long-time instructor and
administrator in the Wewahitch-
ka system, will take over as Prin-
cipal of the high school in that
community. Mathes replaces S.
M. Eubanks, who took over the
slot as coordinator of adult, voca-
tional and community education
from retiring Howard Blick.
Catherine Barfield will be the
principal of Highland View Ele-
me nta School, replacing Sara
/Joe/Wooten, who was transferred
to Wewahitchka High School as
assistant principal.
Helen Ramsey will be assist-
ant principal of Port St. Joe High
School and will be replaced as di-
rector of instructional service by
David Bidwell.
Breakfast will be served this
year in the elementary schools
throughout the county, but the
morning meals will not begin un-
til September 5, according to

'The early morning meal will
be available to all elementary
school students, with reduced
and price and free meals also
available to those who qualify for
them," the school executive said.
Breakfast prices will be 754
full price, 304 reduced price and,
of course, free for those who
Watson said there will be no
change in the length or number
of classes offered each day.
"There will still be seven periods
a day," he said.
Bus routes and stop times

are the same as they have been
for several years.
The school spokesman said
there are too many small items to
be considered at each school to
be covered in one news item. He
suggested that if students or par-
ents have any question concern-
ing their child's first association
with the Gulf County system,
that they call the office of the
school the student will be attend-
ing. There are people in all the
various school offices who can
answer any detailed question a
person may have.

Need to Complete

Street Numbers

Gulf County needs to com-
plete its naming of streets and
numbering parcels of property,
Port St. Joe's Postmaster, Dennis

School bus drivers were participating in here are Mrs. Jeanette Antley, Don Rich,
a special training session Tuesday morn- Mark Kostic and Betty Curlee go through
ing, in preparation to the beginning of the paces of familiarizing themselves with
school on Monday of next week. Shown any changes in laws and procedures.

Geoghagan advised the County
Commission Tuesday.
Geoghagan was spokesman
for a group which included the
post office, ambulance services,
telephone company and all emer-
gency services in the county.
Geoghagan said the present
system is beginning to get con-
fusing, especially for those pro-
viding services who do not know
everyone in the county and where
they live. He pointed out that in
Port St. Joe, addresses from First
to Ninth Streets can be confused
with the same addresses in High-
land View and some in Oak
Grove. "Either a change in num-
bering or in street names needs
to be affected in some places to
avoid confusion," the postmaster
Terry Johnson, representing
the St. Joseph Telephone and
Telegraph Company said the
changes would be needed before
a 911 emergency phone number
could be installed.
Chairman Doug Birmingham
said Dewayne Manuel had been
working on this project for nearly
a year and that it was almost
done. Manuel said the system
was in place. He was Just waiting
for some of the County Commis-
sioners to come up with street
names for un-named streets and
iron out the problem of more
than one street bearing the same
name in some instances.
Geoghagan said the program
itself had caused some problems.
"Some people know what their
new number and their new street
address will be and have already
started using it. We don't know

Rish Quitting Post

As County Attorney

Gulf County Attorney William J. Rish advised the
County Commission Tuesday morning that he was plan-
ning to step down from his position by the first of the
year and that the Board should begin considering his re-
Rish said he would be leaving the Board by the end
of the current fiscal year which is September 30 and no
later than the end of the calendar year.
Rish, who has been the county attorney for 27
years, said he is stepping down from the position in or-
der to back off from some of his work load. "I am trying
to ease into a semi-retirement situation," Rish told The
Star, Tuesday, "and this is the first step toward that
The popular Port St. Joe attorney has always had
the support of every County Commission during his
long tenure of service and has never faced pressure to
resign or change his style of serving the county.
Rish has been attorney for the Board during perhaps
the most difficult time of service for any attorney. The
introduction of environmental Issues, make-up of the
Commission districts throughout the county, changing
of the county seat of government and introduction of
single member districts, have all been traumatic experi-
ences for both the Board and its attorney.
The attorney will continue to practice here in Port
St. Joe, but he said he just needs to rid himself of some
of his responsibilities.

Five Arrested on

Narcotics Charges

In Weekend Round Up

The Gulf County Sheriffs De-
partment and the Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforcement agents
arrested five Gulf County resi-
dents, charging them with drug
violations, during a week end
Sheriff Al Harrison said inves-
tigation on much of the illegal
drug activities had been in
progress for nearly four months,
with the week end sweep the re-
sult of the long investigation.
The Sheriff said he has al-
ready secured several more arrest
warrants and has requested sev-
eral more warrants, which will be
served in the next few days. The
Sheriff said the arrests by his de-
partment and the FDLE has
made a sizeable dent in the traf-
ficking of marijuana and cocaine
in both ends of Gulf County.
"We had the assistance of the
Port St. Joe Police Department in
the operation, also, but couldn't
use their men directly for the ob-
vious reason they are too well

known in this area for undercov-
er work," Harrison said.
Arrested in the Wewahitchka
area were Grover C. McLemore,
Sr., 67 and his son, Kevin Wayne
McLemore, 28, both of Route 1,
Wewahitchka. McLemore, Sr.,
was charged with sale of marijua-
na and his son was charged with
sale of cocaine.
The younger McLemore was
still in Gulf County jail Tuesday
while the elder man was free on
$30,000 bond.
In the Port St. Joe area, Mary
Belle Sims, 238 Avenue C was ar-
rested and charged with sale of
marijuana, possession with in-
tent to sell and possession of
more than 20 grams of marijua-
Sims was said to be in pos-
session of 217 bags of marijuana
ready for sale, as well as a pound
of the illegal weed stuffed in a pil-
low case, $527 in cash, a pack-
age containing a quarter pound

Eye For An Eye

We don't know how they manage to do it with such regulari-
ty, but the Middle East terrorists can manage to twist the facts
around and put us in a box with embarrassing regularity.
We can't help but wonder how they managed to conclude
that the United States was responsible for the Israeli's kidnap-
ping Shiite Moslem Sheik Abdul-Karim Obeid last week, nor
can we understand how they could have so quickly arrived at
the situation where they were going to kill our Colonel William
Higgins, if we didn't persuade the Jews to send their mnn back
Somehow or other, the terrorists knew that if they threat-
ened to hang our Colonel, there was no action of retaliation
this civilized nation of ours could or would do about it.
They apparently understand our mentality better than we
understand theirs.
Last week, President George Bush was extremely concerned
about the situation but admitted he didn't know at the time
what we could do about it without harming many innocent ci-
It seems as if the terrorists had us figured out right.
A naval task force was steaming toward the area Friday of
last week and by the time of this reading, there has probably
been another incident in or around Labanon which has made
the task force stop off-shore, or head for neutral waters, rather
than risk more innocent people getting hurt.
Truly all Americans, softies that we are, can empathize with
President Bush. None of us would be the barbarians the terror-
ists have proven themselves to be time and again. We have
been reared in a society which teaches that the bad guys al-
ways get to shoot or strike first. We never start fights, we al-
ways fight defensively. We spend all our extra energy trying to
save a life rather than figuring out new ways to kill more people
and get some publicity for it. Last but not least, it bothers us
as a nation to be thought a bully.
All of this is true. We're more interested in preserving life
than killing people. Just this once, though, it would certainly
be satisfying to send those a terrorists a message and tell them
that if they hang, shoot, spindle or mutilate our Colonel, we'll
darned well do the same thing to their Sheik before the Colonel
quits kicking!
And then do it!
At least, exercising the old advice about an eye for an eye
and a tooth for a tooth, would be satisfying to the ego.

Is Summer Gone?

For the school kids and teachers of our community, sum-
mer vacation is over. It seems like it was just a couple of weeks
ago that school let out for the summer, but here it is getting
ready to start up once again.
By the time you read this wonderful newspaper's next is-
sue, school will be in full swing and the kids will already be
marking the calendar, counting off the days until it is out for
the Thanksgiving holidays, then the Christmas holidays.
If you think this year has flown by, it's because it has. But,
though it seems to have travelled with the speed of light, we
suppose it has lasted just as long as any other year.
Summer has been a long, hot experience for most of us and
we're ready for the cool days and evenings of autumn. With the
coming of autumn, there begins a serious business, defined as
a game, called football. And, with the end of summer, the mul-
let begin to run. Hunting season begins in just a little more
than a month and the time comes to plant turnip greens.
This summer has been a good one for us here along the
Panhandle. For the past several years, we have experienced
drought or near drought conditions, year after year. Last year,
the Apalachicola and Chipola rivers fell so low they were not
much more than a muddy ditch running south. The breaking
of the drought with a replenishing of our water table was the
best thing which happened to us this year.
We're ready for all those good things which fall brings us
each and every year. We can hardly wait for some of them to
begin and we're just as incensed when it is time for some of
them to end. But in spite of the discomfort of summer tempera-
tures; despite the seeming short duration of the season; despite
the inability to take a long, leisurely vacation, this has been a
summer we will remember for a time as the year the rains came
in abundance once again.

All Quiet on the Western Front

Grandmothers are neat. I can
remember so clearly the excite-
ment of loading into that '51
Chevrolet heading to Pa and
Grans. Sometime during the trip
mother would give us that talk
about "being nice" .and "polite"
and "don't ask too many ques-
tions" and "don't grab everything
in sight" and "don't wear your
Grandmother out" and so on.
Dad would glance up in the rear
view mirror and punctuate moth-
er's lecture with, 'You boys be re-
Respectful? Listen, with
Granny it went much further
than respect we loved her like
you couldn't believe. We'd pile out
of that car and Granny would be
running, not walking fast or hur-
rying mind you, but running
across the yard. She'd go to talk-
ing and to hugging. She was
about the best I'd ever seen at ei-
ther one. She'd give her daughter
a quick hug, pat her favorite son-
in-law on the shoulder, politely
ask them about the trip over and
then she'd go back to doing what

she so obviously had been wait-
ing on since mother phoned that
we were coming namely hug-
ging on her three favorite people
in the whole world, Leon, David
and me.
Now I know what you're
thinking. Three young boys don't
like to be hugged by anybody.
And you're right. I couldn't stand
to be hugged. Except Granny was
different. She didn't give you the
perfunctory hug while she was
talking to your parents. No way.
She made the socially acceptable
greeting in regard to Mom and
Dad and then she got down to
having fun with the kids. It was
easy to love Granny 'cause she
first loved us.
She'd let us do anything. We
helped her cook. She'd let us play
with whatever was close by. I
mean nothing was off limits. If
mother was a'trying to slow us
down, Gran would say, "Let the
boys be." I might not of been but
eight or nine but I realized that
Granny was the boss of mother.
And Gran had such great stories

about when Mom and Dad were
Years later, during a break in
college, I rode over to spend a few
days with Pa and Gran, or Great-
Gran as she was now called. She
.was Just as glad to see me as
ever. She'd throw her head back
with laughter as she reminded
me for the hundredth time about
when I was so small she'd give
me a bath in a number 3 wash-
tub. I didn't remember but you
can bet the farm I enjoyed it. She
sent me back to school with two
boxes full of fried apple turno-
vers, no body could make 'em like
my Grandmother. I haven't eaten
one of those things since Great-
Gran left I'm not going to ei-
ther. That's a special memory just
between the two of us.
I was swished back to an ear-
lier time this past weekend as I
watched my boys prepare to
spend a week with their Grand-
mother. They were so excited. Ca-
thy was packing a suitcase and
instructing them about "being
nice" and "polite" and "not fight-

ing" and .... I saw the gleam in
their eyes. They knew they were
headin' for fun times as they were
getting in Uncle David's car for
the trip. I hugged Jesse and pat-
ted Josh on the back (Josh's
hugs are reserved for special peo-
ple) and thought about telling
them to make some memories. I
didn't some things a boy has,
got to figure out on his own.
Cathy and I were looking 'for-
ward to a week alone. You ever
tried to watch T.V. in a quiet
room? No one vaulted over the
chair, knocked me onto the floor
and rolled me into a West Japa-
nese, double-cross, step-over toe
hold. It had been so long since I'd
selected a program to watch that
I didn't know how to do it. Every
five minutes Cathy would say,
"Reckon they are there by now?"
We called. Josh answered the

Mr. Know-It-MAl

Everybody knows one. You see one everywhere you go. There's
no problem realizing he's there because most of the time you hear
him before you see him.
He's the man who knows everything. At least, he knows more
than you about anything you want to discuss.
It was Will Rogers, I think, who said something to the effect that
he couldn't believe how ignorant his father was when he was 16,
but was amazed at how much his father had learned when he was
2 There are many different Mr. Know-It-Alls. They come in young,
middle-age and older ages. There are skinny ones, fat ones, and av-
erage size Mr. Know-It-Alls. They also some in a variety of colors:
white, black, yellow and some are black and blue from time to time
from opening their mouths when they should have been listening.
Some people have told me there are actually some female Mr.
Know-It-Alls. I dare not comment on that except to say, I'll take
theiri- word for it.
Mr. Know-It-All's strongest muscles are located around his
mouth. The reason is those are the ones he uses most. Their next
strongest muscles are located in his arms and hands. The reason
for this is he uses them to gesture while his mouth is motoring
along, not knowing, half the time, which direction it is going.
They seem to be people who started talking late in life and are
trying desperately to catch up. They are also extremely opinionated
about everything, even the things they know absolutely nothing
Mr. Know-It-Alls can be found in schools, at beaches, on buses,
at cookouts, at political gatherings, in churches, in bathrooms, in
businesses, at construction sites, in every conceivable club on
earth, on submarines, in Memphis and I've heard there are one or
two located in our town. General Custer said it best that sticky day
at Little Big Horn when he proclaimed, "Men, I think these dad-
blasted heathens have us surrounded!", or something to that effect.
If there's anything worse than a Mr. Know-It-All, it's a Mr.
Know-It-All who has had a few drinks. And it seems the more he
drinks, the more he knows. If they drink enough, I've been told,
they reach a point in the realm of knowledge where they know more
than God. Some Mr. Know-It-Alls have actually drank enough that
they actually thought they were God, I've been told.
Mr. Know-It-Alls have one common trait; they love to argue. If
there's no one to argue with, they'll argue with signs, posts (con-
crete or wood), discarded tires, or empty beer bottles. Arguments,
you see, reinforces their know-it-all ability. Even when they are
wrong, which they are most of the time, they will argue on until
they have worn their opposition down- and, in their warped minds,
believe they have won the argument.
It wasn't too long ago that I was a Mr. Know-It-All. As a matter
of fact, I had reached the point to where some people even ad-
dressed me by my correct title. In desperation they would finally
say, "O.K., Mr. Know-It-All, you win! Nobody knows anything but
'That's exactly right!" I would loudly reply, "and don't you forget
After many arguments, bruises and contusions, headaches and
heartaches, and a belly-full of eaten crow, I must admit that there
are many, many people who know much more than most anything
than I do. It's a sobering thought to realize what a fool I've made of
myself all those years.
To those ofyou I've hurt with my incessant blabbering, I'm,sor-
ry. Please forgive me.
On the other hand, you shouldn't have been arguing with me in
the first place. As. a matter of fact, you were wrong to begin with......

Auditions Being
Held Aug. 21 & 22
Auditions for Gulf Coast Com-
munity College's production of
"Charley's Aunt" will be held on
August 21 and 22 at 6:30 p.m. in
the Fine Arts Auditorium.
According to director Rose-
marie Shumate, over the years
this farce by Brandon Thomas
has moved millions to tears of
laughter. The plot involves two
young college students who invite
their sweethearts to meet their
wealthy aunt from Brazil. The hu-
mor arises out of complications to
the visit.
Shumate said that there are
parts for six males and four fe-
males aged 18 to 40. She also
needs a set designer/builder and
a costume designer.
Performance dates are Sep-
tember 29 and 30 and October 1.
More information about audi-
tions for "Charley's Aunt' is avail-
able from the Fine Arts Division
at 769-1551.

Granny couldn't come to the
phone Jess has got her in a
step-over toe hold. "Dad, I've got
to go. I'm her tag team partner."
Silence is golden for a
while. By the third day Cathy and
I were speaking in whispers. It
was too quiet. Way too quietly We
even talked about going to a mo-
vie. You can't get much more des-
perate than that.
"Why haven't they called?
They said they would call."
"Cathy, it's 10:30. We can't
call them this late. Why, mother
always had us in bed by nine."
Fifteen minutes later we
called. Jess answered. They were
fine. No, Granny couldn't come to

to come home?"
They don't call'em GRAND-
mothers for nothing.

The Commission agreed with

The University of Florida noti-
fled the Commission that the
population of the county had
been determined by their demo-
graphic department. The Univer-

sus figures, but the
determination is used to stipulate
the county's share in any per-

According to the University
figures, Gulf County has a popu-
lation of 12,560, as of April of
this year.
Of that population, 6,471 live
outside Incorporated areas.
Chairman Birmingham said he
felt this last figure was greater
than reported. 'We have people
living all through the county now
and these small communities are
filling up fast."
In other business matters,
the Commission:
-Agreed to call for bids to
construct a solid waste compac-
tion station on State Road 22,
just west of Wewahitchka. Con-
struction is expected to take 60-
90 days.
-Heard a report of an object
on St. Joe Beach which appears
to have live electrical wires lead-
ing to it. Crawford Jackson, a
resident of the area, asked the
county to have someone investi-
gate the matter.
-Heard a report from BDE
representative, Ralph Rish, that
the Highland View water tower
was in bad condition but could
be repaired. He also reported it
was empty, which made for a
dangerous situation. 'Water in-

Gulf County took delivery
Thursday of a new ambulance ve-

the Port St. Joe area.
According to Frank Battafara-
no, Gulf Pines Hospital adminis-
trator, contractors furnishing the
service to south Gulf County for
the County Commission, the ve-
hicle is more than a new truck to
place into service. The new am-
bulance is the first step toward
an advanced life service for south
Gulf which Battafarano hopes to
have in place and operating by.
the first of the new budget year,
which begins in October.
'The final step depends on re-
ceiving a grant from the state
which we have already made ap-
plication for," the administrator
said. 'The grant will be a 50-50
match and the County Commis-
sion has been supportive of the
concept of the ALS," Battafarano
Advanced life support means

'Tree Farm"



Thruout Florida

They aren't as numerous as
the old Burma Shave signs were
and they don't entertain us with
humorous poetry, but throughout
Florida drivers along our high-
ways will occasionally see a sign
that proclaims "Tree Farm".
As a matter of fact, there are
3,481 certified tree farms in Flori-
da as of March, 1989, and they
include 7,406.194 acres. That's
just about half of the total timber
land in Florida. So what exactly is
a tree farm?
Charles Marcus, conservation
programs manager for the Florida
Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services Division of
Forestry, explains the benefits
and objectives of the Tree Farm
"For the public, tree farms
mean clean air, wetlands, fresh:
water, wildlife habitat and a fu-
ture wood supply," says Marcus,
a member of the Tree Farm Com-
mittee of the Florida Forestry As-
sociation which sponsors the pro-
gram in Florida. "For the
landowner, it means recognition
for properly managed acreage
that is geared for maximum pro-
duction of forest products.
"The American Tree Farm
System is a nationwide program
to encourage private forest own-
ers to do an effective job of grow-
-ing trees as a source of income,"
he adds. 'The Tree Farm sign in-
'dicates the owner is managing his
forest to produce continuous har-
vests of forest products with the
added benefit of improved wildlife
habitat, watershed protection,
outdoor recreation and aesthetic
"The program began in 1941
under the auspices of -the nation's-
wood using industries," Marcus
explains. "Participants, in addi-
tion to private forest landowners,
include public agencies, consult-
ing foresters, timber company fo-
resters, organizations such as the
Florida Forestry, Association' and,
of course, state agencies similar
to the Division of Forestry."
Although most tree farms are'
found from the Panhandle of Flor-
ida south to around Ocala, the
area of greatest forestation in the
state, 'the green and white signs
may be seen in most counties

"A tree farm must be at least'
10 acres," according to Marcus.
"Any tract of forestland that size
or larger can be nominated for
tree farm certification by any pro-
fessional forester including indus-
try representatives, Division of
Forestry foresters or consulting
"Once the nomination form is
submitted, it is considered by the
five district chairmen, the state
chairman and the state chairman
elect," Marcus explains. "If all the
criteria for certification are met,
the state chairman submits the
application, to 'the American For-
est Institute and the sign and
other appropriate symbols of rec-
ognition are sent to the forest
In addition to being at least
10 acres, a certified tree farm
must be dedicated to the growing
and harvesting of timber and oth-
er forest crops and the owner
must apply accepted forest man-
agement practices. These include
protecting the woodlands against
fires, diseases, insects, destruc-
tive grazing and soil erosion;
prompt restocking of desired spe-
cies of trees on harvested areas
and idle areas suitable for tree
growing; provisions for suitable
wildlife habitat; and a willingness
to harvest trees and other forest
crops. .
Certified tree farms are in-
spected every five years for recer-
tification, ,Marcus says. Each
year, a tree farmer of the year .is
chosen, generally from among the
county and regional tree farmers
of the year named by their local.
forestry practitioners. The 1988
Florida Tree Farmers were Oren
and Virginia Marchant who own
500 acres of pine trees in Newber-
ry near Galnesville.
"Florida is facing the contin-
ued loss of forestland as our pop-
ulation grows," Marcus says. "By

recognizing the efforts of private
forest owners, we hope we can
encourage them to stay in busi-
ness and, at the same time, make
Florida's citizens more aware of
the contribution these folks make
to our quality of life."

"Florida has nearly 1,200
children waiting for adoption,"
said HRS Secretary Gregory L.
Coler. We know there are people
out there who want and need a
child to love and care for."
Now with just a telephone
call, HRS can respond with infor-
mation about children who are
available for adoption.
HRS found permanent adop-
tive homes for 720 children in
1988. The waiting children have
special needs they are part of a
sibling group, are .older than 8;
years of age, a minority race, or
are physically, mentally or emo-
tionally handicapped.
According to HRS Secretary
Coler, "these children want and
deserve a permanent loving home'
and family as much as any other
children. We hope Floridians will
respond with renewed interest to
our appeal."
At the current time, the num-
ber is hooked to an answering
machine. Callers will hear a re-
corded message and be requested
to leave their name, city and tele-
phone number so that HRS staff:
can call them back.
Messages will be given daily
to each of the 11 HRS districts for
response as soon as possible.
Callers can expect to receive a re-
turn call within 48 hours from a:
HRS district adoptions counselor.

County Millage Rate

There will be a slight reduc-
tion in the Gulf County millage
rate for fiscal 1989-90, Adminis-
trative Assistant, Larry Wells,
told the Rotary Club Thursday.
"The 'Commission had re-
quests which would have swolen
the new budget all out of propor-
tion if they had all been accepted,
but they have managed to reduce
the proposed expenditures to the
point where we can see a small
tax rate reduction," Wells told the
Wells said the spending of the
county will be slightly higher
than last year, but the introduc-
tion .of new taxable property on
the rolls and improvements to ex-
isting taxable properties have
worked to make more money
available per mill levied than last
The speaker showed the club
a percentage "pie'", showing
where collected taxes were spent,
with solid waste disposal and law
enforcement coming in for a neck
and neck., 25% share of county
expenditures.. Three constitution-
al offices, the Property, Appraiser
and Tax Collector each use about
five percent of the budget and the
Clerk of :the Court, uses about
10% while other operations of the
county, including the Road and
Bridge Department and Mosquito
Control operations, account for
the remainder of the funds.
Wells said the solid waste fi-
nances would be. even larger if
the Commission had not made
the. decision to discontinue the
area trailer collection system- and
require residents to either con-
tract with a private solid waste
collector or haul their refuse to
the Port St. Joe or Wewahitchka
compactor sites.
'This move saved the county
nearly $250,000," Wells said. "If
the Board had not taken this ac-
tion, the Mosquito Control budget
would be over $1 million for the
,coming fiscal year.",
.f Wells pointed- out that the
.'name "Mosquito Control Depart-
Tnment" is a misnomer. "Actually,
only a small portion of their activ-
-ties are tied to mosquito control
any more. Their big expense is in
,handling the. solid waste pro-

Wells stressed that the bud-
get wasn't final, yet, but the ten-
tative figures are pretty close to
the final figure at this point. He
said the final figure would proba-
bly differ very little from its posi-
tion as it now stands..

during this interlude, there are
things to think about and tasks

For His

Congressman Bill Grant was
honored by the group Citizens
For A Sound Economy for his ef-
forts to control Federal spending.
Grant, an original co-sponsor
of the bill mandating a balanced
budget amendment to the U.S.
Constitution, was applauded for
his efforts by Citizens For A
Sound Economy President Wayne
Gable on the steps of the Capitol.
The group collected and displayed
160,000 petitions calling on
Members of Congress to slash the
budget deficit through controls
on spending.
'The Gramm-Rudman-Holl-
ings law was a landmark achieve-
ment in the effort to systematical-

deficit." Grant said. "But in the
last few years, we have witnessed
several attempts to weaken or get
around the law. Now, more than
ever, I believe it is urgent that we
pass the balanced budget law.

Maintaining a successful,
productive vegetable garden is a
never-ending enterprise. Even
though you may be experiencing
a lull between spring harvest and
fall planting, there's still work to
be done. Today, I'll talk about
how to take advantage of this pe-
riod by performing those fine tun-
ing tasks that can make the dif-
ference between a good and a
great garden. My information for
this article was provided by Ex-
tension Vegetable Specialist, Jim
Stephens, of the University of
Florida's Institute of Food and Ag-
ricultural Sciences (IFAS).
If you still have vegetables in
your garden, you should continue
perhaps even intensify a regular
pest protection program. We're
into the rainy season now, which
means hot, wet days, and warm,
humid nights, Just the conditions
that stimulate insect and disease
pest activity. Tomato and corn
fruit worms and pickle worms,
can be very destructive at this
time. Even those pests which
haven't been overwhelming thus
far, often become severe during
the rainy months. Things like
aphids, cabbage worms, squash
borers, and corn bud worms are
common problems. You should be
especially alert for signs of dam-
age, and be prepared to apply in-
secticides when needed.
In addition, maintain a sharp
lookout for the spread of plant
diseases. Any diseased plants
should be pulled out and dis-
posed of as soon as possible.
Plants remaining in the garden
should be sprayed weekly with a
good fungicide.

Summer is a good time to
evaluate the seed varieties you se-
lected for the spring garden. Ask
yourself such questions as: Did
the variety produce strong, vigor-
ous plants? What about the qual-
ity of the vegetables themselves?
How about disease resistance?
Try to make a note of the varieties
which did well and ones you'll
want to include in your fall vege-
table garden.
Also, summer offers a good
opportimity to observe the benefi-
cial effects of mulching. If you
mulched your spring garden,
you'll notice that you have very
few weeds. Whereas your neigh-
bor's unmulched garden may be
overrun with weed growth. Nema-
tode injury also is much milder
on mulched vegetables, while
nematodes will attack mulched
plants, their effects are not as se-
vere, because of the healthier root
zone in a mulch garden.
The most striking observation
you'll make about mulching is
how it controls soil moisture. Veg-
etables grown on unmulched,
hot, sandy Florida soils will droop
while those grown in mulch gar-
dens will stand tall. We've seen
all kinds of materials used for
mulching, including plastic, pine
straw., hay, oak leaves, and wood
shavings, even such things as
peanut hulls, newspaper, and
You may think of other sum-
mer chores and new garden ide-
as. Meanwhile, don't forget the
care of any plants that are still
producing. A little extra effort
may squeeze some valuable pro-
ductivity from your old plot. Be
sure to use any extra time during
this slow gardening season to for-
mulate future plans, plants that
could pay off in a better fall har-

Mail Daily
Postmaster Dennis Geoghag-
an told the Kiwanis Club Tues-
day that the local post office han-
dles 20,280 pieces of mail, daily,
with their 16 employees and con-
tract personnel. 'We have only 10
full-time employees," Geoghagan
said, "and we're expected to pay
our own expenses."
The postmaster admitted to
making a few mistakes regularly
in their operation, "But when you
handle this much mail, there are
bound to be a few mistakes made
along the way. Even so, we're
working on our errors daily," the
postmaster said.
Geoghagan said the most fre-
quent reason for mistakes in
handling the mail is that the mail
is either poorly addressed or
there is confusion over the ad-
dress placed on the item of mail.
The speaker said there are
streets in Highland View, Port St.
Joe and Oak Grove, all with the
same name and some of the
same house numbers, all ad-
dressed to the Port St. Joe post
"If our clerk doesn't happen



at PO
to know the person receiving the
mail, or where he lives, a letter
addressed to "522 Second Street"
can go to either of the three com-
munities if one of our new or part
time clerks handles the mail.
This is the most common cause
for errors."
Geoghagan showed the Kiwa-
nians a short video featuring
Postmaster General, Anthony
Frank, to begin his program.
Frank said the U.S. Postal
Service handles 525 million piec-
es of mail per day. 'We handle
over 40% of the world's mail dai-
ly. By and large, we do it well and
The PM general said the post-
al service hadn't used tax money
to pay its expenses since 1982.
'We work entirely on our own
revenues and we're constantly
looking for ways to improve our
efficiency in order to keep from
raising rates for service."
The U.S. Postal Service em-
ploys 800,000 people and oper-
ates 40,000 stations throughout
the nation.

St. Joe Finishes

Fifth In the State

Port St. Joe's All Stars fin-
ished fifth in the state Dixie
Youth baseball tournament held
in Winter Haven last week. After
drawing the bye on the first eve-
ning of the tournament, and
downing East Lakeland 7-2 last
Tuesday, the local team dropped
their next two games to be elimi-
nated from the state play-offs. .
The usual hard hitting St.
Joe group's bats fell silent on
Wednesday and Thursday as they
faced a higher caliber of pitching
than had seen all year. According
to Coach Warren Yeager the
pitchers from Pace and Winter
Haven were throwing it a lot
harder, and had good curve balls.
St. Joe only managed to get
one hit by Jasmin Thomas in
Wednesday's 11-4 loss to Pace.
Damien Quinn started on the
mound for St. Joe and was re-
lieved by Thomas.
Thursday evening's 9-3 loss
to host Winter Haven eliminated
St. Joe from the tournament. Des
Baxter was the starting pitcher
for St. Joe but was relieved by
Chris Farmer in the first inning,
Thomas came on in relief later in
the game. The highlight of the
game for St. Joe was Thomas's
two-run homer. The team visited

The Gulf County Board of County Commissioners will
hold public. hearings to receive input from the citizens
about the Board contracting with a private company to
provide all of the garbage services for Gulf County. This
would cut the costs of garbage from the ad valoren tax-
es, and would get the County completely out of the
"garbage" business. The Board has not made a decision
concerning this matter, and will not do so until the
public has been given the opportunity to voice their
opinion. -
A public ;hearing will be held in Wewahitchka on Au-
