Over City's Problems

Dirt-Hauling Suit Dismissed by Judge

Circuit Judge DeDee Costel-
lo, dismissed a suit filed recent-
ly against Gulf County this
week. The suit, filed in April by
Jake Hysmith, of Wewahitchka,
had asked for an injunction and
damages from the County Com-
mission, alleging they fur-
nished dirt for private individu-
als, free of charge.
Hysmith, owner of a dirt
hauling business in Wewahitch-

ka, had charged that the Com-
mission's action had been indi-
rect competition to his
business and also violated state
Judge Costello found in fa-
vor of the County Commission
in a ruling Monday, saying Hys-
mith's suit found no basis for
granting the relief requested.
Her ruling said Hysmith had

failed to bring out sufficient
facts to substantiate his allega-
tions and therefore found no
basis on which to grant his re-
quest or continue with his suit
for damages.
Hysmith's suit was there-
fore dismissed by Judge Costel-
lo. The Judge's action does not
prevent Hysmith's attorney
from filing another action at a
later date on the same charges.

City Searching for Foam Cause

Port St. Joe's Wastewater
Treatment Plant operators took
steps this week to answer recent
public concerns about the pres-
ence of foam in St. Joseph Bay.
The City Commission and plant
managers took the step to assure
the public the problem wasn't a
product of the local plant and
pledged their resources to arrive
at the reason for the recent ap-
pearance of the foam.
The statement pointed out
that the Wastewater Plant per-
sonnel has been working with
Florida Department of Environ-
mental Regulations agent Bob
Beisel to ascertain the possible
causes of the foam on the Bay.

Belsel has stated the Panama
City and Panama City Beaches
areas have also recently experi-
enced a similar occurence.
Concerning their effluent dis-
charge, the City officials pointed
out that emissions from the plant
continue to be in compliance with
all of its state and federal permit
criteria. Being in compliance
means there are no unusual dis-
charges coming from the plant.
The WWTP has cooperated with
the FDER in sharing sampling
chores to make a positive deter-
mination as to the source of the
foam, which is thought to be
caused by forces of nature.
The City is requesting that

any inquiries regarding this inci-
dent should be directed to FDER
or other official agencies.
The concern of the City stems
in the fact that they are currently
in the process of re-newing their
operating permit and need to
have any complaints which may
be filed, authenticated for fact be-
cause of possible effects even
false complaints would have in
securing a permit until the facts
are known positively.
The City is constantly daily
- monitoring the plant's opera-
tion and emissions, along with
DER. in order to prevent any
problem substances from being
emitted into the Bay waters.

The retiring City Commission
wiped out its unfinished business
Tuesday night, stepping aside for
the new Board to begin work.
Bill Fleming, the only Com-
missioner stepping down from his
post, expressed his pleasure at
serving the City for 10 years, and
wished his successor, Charles
Tharpe, well in his duties.
Tharpe hit the ground run-
ning, bringing up a problem with
mosquito breeding places in the
City. One spot in particular was
discussed at length by Tharpe,
who said he had no solution to
the problem.
The problem in particular
had been brought to the County
Commission last week by Mrs.
Lamar Speights, a resident of Av-
enue A. The County had advised
Mrs. Speights to bring her prob-
lem to the City Commission.
Tharpe, who learned of the
problem at the County meeting,
introduced Mrs. Speights' prob-
lem with mosquitoes to the City
Commission Tuesday night,
pointing out that requirements by
the Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Reglatlons was the
cause of the problem.
Tharpe and Speights said the
problem is almost unbearable in
the vicinity of a drain water hold-
ing pond in the vicinity of Avenue
A. Tharpe said the Apalachicola
Northern Railroad was required
by DER to dig five of the holding
ponds which were a prime breed-
ing spot for mosquitoes. The
ponds are required of all con-
,.struction projects, as a water
conservation measure.
Mayor Frank Pate said Sam
Graves, Gulf County Mosquito
Control Supervisor, had contact-
ed him and said his department
would place some pellets in the
ponds, which were designed to
discourage mosquito breeding in
standing water. He suggested
that if the problem didn't improve
in the very near future that the
City approach Graves' depart-
ment for other measures.
Tharpe said he had contacted
ANRR officials, and they had ex-
pressed an eagerness to try and
alleviate the growing problem.
The preponderance of pot-
holes puncturing the plane of city
streets took up most of the Com-
mission's time Tuesday night, es-
pecially with the Board wanting
the fractures repaired prior to
putting on a new road surface.
One of the most recurring

and troublesome of the City's pot-
holes is at the intersection of
Fifth Street and Garrison, where
State of Florida underground
drain structures have been a con-
tinuous problem in undermining
the street.
Again, Tharpe came to the
forefront, saying he had utilized
the connections his father-in-law,
a former DOT employee, had and
contacted the DOTs Chipley of-
fice to seek some kind of relief.
Tharpe said his contact as-
sured' him DOT would be in the
City in a few weeks to do some-
thing with this intersection and
smooth the humps in Fifth
Street, which is a state highway.
Public Works Superinten-
dent, Frank Healy advised the
Commission he had a supplier
coming next week to demonstrate
the latest in pothole repair equip-

meant. Healy also reported, 'The
asphalt plant has been down for
repairs, but they are scheduled to
resume operations Wednesday of
this week, and when they do, we
will be hot and heavy into pot-
It was agreed upon that there
is no shortage of potholes, any-
where in the city, following the
two months of almost daily rains
which have fallen on Gulf

the various Commissioners to
areas of particular responsibility

ceived its oath of office.

and Fire Department, to Comis-

Mississippi Firm

Gets Tentative

Bridge Contract

A Mississippi bridge contracting firm is the apparent
low bidder for a new high-rise bridge in Port St. Joe, ac-
cording to a news release this week by Tommy Speights,
information officer for the Chipley office of DOT.
L & A Contracting Company and Subsidiary of Hat-
tiesburg. has agreed to construct a 2,780-foot-long two-
lane bridge, with a vertical clearance of 75 feet, over the
Gulf County Canal at Highland View, northwest of Port
St. Joe for a bid of $8.088 million. The 75 foot height of
the bridge will allow ocean-going barges access to the
Gulf County Canal and the Intracoastal Waterway sys-
tem. It will be one of only a few unobstructed outlets to
the Gulf of Mexico for waterway freight traffic.
The contract also calls for the removal of the existing
drawbridge structure, built in 1937. Road work will in-
clude clearing and grubbing, excavation, embankment
and stabilization lighting and incidental items.
The new bridge will be located west [bay side] of the
existing drawbridge. Construction is scheduled to begin
within the next two or three months.
L & A was among a list of twelve contractors vying for
the project. The firm has 526 working days to complete
the bridge project.
Replacement of the old bascule drawbridge span has
received considerable local support and interest for the
past 15 years or more, due to the growing maintenance
problems with the draw span and the vital position of
the bridge for land traffic.

Foam On Bay Waters Raises

Questions As to Its Origin

week and interested local citizens and the
DER want to know the cause.

Dying patches of spartina grasses, caused
from unknown reasons, probably sparked such
a drastic reaction last week, to an appearance
of a foamy coating on water along the edges of
St. Joseph Bay. The appearance of the foam
caused the St. Joe Bay Committee and Friends
of the Bay to alert the Florida Department of
Environmental Regulation and ask for an ex-
Gary Shaffer, director of DER's Panama City
office, agreed with Port St. Joe Wastewater
Treatment Plant managers, that the foam was
more than likely a product of Mother Nature,
rather than a problem with the City's plant or
with an industrial plant in Port St. Joe. Shaffer
met with the two committees Monday evening
to discuss the problem.
James White, director of the WWP laborato-
ry, said it was his opinion that the foamy ac-
tion, which suddenly, appeared last week, was
caused by the recent heavy rains. White said
the rains caused flooding conditions up creeks
and bayous which feed into the Bay, causing
an influx of tannic acid to be washed into the
body of salt water. He claimed that wave ac-
tions in the Bay churned up the mixture, caus-
ing the foam.
Shaffer agreed with White's summary, but
said the DER was going to test the substance,
"Just to be sure." White said the Wastewater
Plant had also been taking tests and sending
them to DER.

Larry McArdle, plant manager, told The
Star, "We haven't had a foam problem in over
three years. Even then, our foam was a differ-
ent color and it was confined to our holding
pond. We have made modifications to our pond
since then which eliminates the foam problem."
Shaffer said the same problem existed in
Panama City and Pensacola, pointing out that
it was not unique to St. Joseph Bay.
"All of these towns have paper mills," St. Jo-
seph Bay Committee chairman, John Lee, re-
'That's true," Shaffer said, "But, the prob-
lem isn't confined to just Port St. Joe, Panama
City and Pensacola. It's all points in between
and along the entire Panhandle," he said. Shaf-
fer reiterated that he was almost certain the
foam was a natural phenomenon.
"We're had reports from the entire North-
west Florida coast about this problem," Shaffer
The foam appears during the day, as the
water begins to get rough and choppy, and dis-
appears in the evening and during the night.
when the water action calms down. It covers
the Bay's shores for up to 10 feet out and ap-
pears to be a light buff color.
Shaffer has enlisted the aid of Robert 0.
Beisel, environmental specialist, to take the

The Culprit

Our Gulf County Commission has been the target of criti-
cisms and dissatisfaction over the past few years, from private
individuals, employees, firms doing business with the county
and even this newspaper.We realize some criticism is going to be
leveled at the Board regardless of what they do or how they do it.
We, as much as anyone, realize that it is not next to impossible
to please everyone in anything one does. It is ABSOLUTELY im-
possible to please everyone in anything one does.
When one becomes a County Commissioner, a City Commis-
sioner, a School Board member, or a little league coach, he had
just best be prepared to be the target of criticism and unwanted
advice. It all goes with the territory.
It seems to us, however, that these criticisms have been
more numerous the past four or five years, than at any time in
the past and even though we all try and we accuse and we fuss
at one commissioner or the other on occasion, we have come to
the conclusion the greater majority of our problems are caused
by the single member district concept under which we operate.
Remember back some 25 or 30 years, if you have privy to
such a memory and recall that in those days we had single
member districts, and we had problems and disagreements ga-
lore. They grew like toadstools after a heavy rain. As a matter of
fact, we remember distinctly that we insisted on going to the at
large system of county government, in order to make our govern-
ing agents responsible to all the people in the county, rather
than just a few.
The system served us well. We had almost eradicated faction-
alism and weighted power in our county and were beginning to
operate as a unit, before the single member district concept was
brought back into play again. Now, we're back to the old busi-
ness of "I'm going to get what I can for my district and you and
yours can just fend for yourself or take a flying leap into the lake
for all I care." Commissioners must answer to only a few of the
county voters at election time, but they get to spend money paid
from every taxpayer in the county.
The reason for representatives in local government in the
first place, is so the taxpayer can express himself as to what he
wants his tax money to be used for. It doesn't work that way
with the single member district.
We realize the concept was adopted to make it easier to elect
a Black man or woman on the Commission. We don't begrudge
that. All we need is responsible people to serve. We think no ar-
guments will be forthcoming opposing the idea that all commis-
sioners, minority or majority, need to be responsible people. The
several districts in our county should make it reasonably easy to
elect minorities to local government, especially in this time when
most voters have come to expect a minority person or persons to
serve on governing boards.
We'd like this matter to be given some serious thought, so we
can do away with the in-fighting which is so rampant on our
County and School board governing bodies, all brought on by
the fact that the members are not responsible nor answerable to
all the voters in the county. Their actions affect us all and they
should be responsible to us all.

.How Long?

How long has it been? We can recall at least 18 years of
pushing, prodding, pleading, begging, dealing, promoting and
generally encouraging the Florida Department of Transportation
to replace the old drawbridge over the Gulf County Canal at
Highland View.
At last, after persevering and almost moving heaven and
earth, the contract for replacing the bridge with a high-rise span
has been bid off and will apparently be let to a Mississippi firm.
Can we say that patience pays off? We could say that if we
had been patient, but we're afraid we would have to say that for
most of the past 18 to 20 years that we have not been patient
with DOT and their position on the bridge.
It goes without saying that we are all thankful that the pro-
ject has finally started to roll toward completion. The old bridge
has been the source of delays, concern, anxiety and, yes, anger,
for longer than we want to remember.
Some thought this day would never come. The prime sup-
porter for the bridge's replacement, died while waiting for DOT to
move. He would be proud of this day. We hope the sign bearing
his name which now adorns the right-of-way on the present
bridge doesn't get lost in the shuffle and takes its rightful place
on the approach to the new one when it is completed.

SHunker Down with Kes

Real Friends Don't Need A Collar

A pick-up truck went by my
house a couple of days ago with a
big dog perched up on the tool
box in the back. He was kind'a
guarding things. You could tell by
the cocky way he held his face up
into the wind that nobody messed
with "his" truck when he was on
duty. I set the hedge trimmer on
the walk and plopped down on
the front steps. It's funny how
your mind works. Before my back
had settled against the wall
behind me, I was 30 years in the
"Going to town, son?"
'Yes, sir."
"Hop up in the back."
I kind'a froze in my tracks. It
was Mr. James Allan Beene. I
don't reckon he'd ever spoken to
me before. But I'd heard all about
him. He lived way up behind the
Foster's, and they lived about as
far back as you could get. I'd only
seen him in town once or twice in
my whole life. He was near 'bout
a giant. And according to the talk
around town, he was about half

mean. Ricky Gene told me that
he'd been in Jail down at Ft.
Pillow for beating up a fellow. Of
course. Ricky Gene also told me
James Allan Beene didn't shave
'cause he didn't have any
whiskers, what with him being an
Indian and all. You had to
discount a lot Ricky Gene told
I wasn't sure I wanted to ride
anywhere with Mr. Beene. I did
lean forward a little to see if I
could tell if he shaved or not.
"Git in, son, we're burning
I did a standing broad Jump
into the back of that Ford pick-
up. He had it in first gear and
moving before I landed. I bounced
to a halt on my back with my feet
jammed up against the tailgate.
Standing over me, licking his
chops was the biggest, meanest,
ugliest, old yellow cur ever put on
this earth. It was the first dog I'd
ever seen riding in the back of a
pick-up. I thought it was also
going to be my last. He leaned

down nose to nose with me and
showed me every tooth he had. I
didn't dare breathe. That crazy
Indian wasn't going to bother
with beating me up, he was going
to let old yeller do It for himl
Twenty minutes later we
pulled up in front of Woodrow
Kennon's store. I hadn't moved,
the dog hadn't moved and I was
alive, I was still aliv-
"Sam." Mr. Beene said it
casual like but that dog backed
off so fast you'd a'thought his
chain had been pulled. Mr. Beene
reached over, picked me up with
one hand and set me gently on
the ground.
'You want a cold drink, son?"
"No sir, thanks for the ride,
good-bye Sam." My legs wouldn't
hardly work but I managed to get
around the comer of Woodrow's
before I collapsed.
About a week later, right after
supper, Dad came out on the
back porch. "Son, Mr. Beene
stopped by this afternoon, he
wants you to help him tomorrow."

"Dad, I ain't going. Send
Leon, he's older, he can do more-
"He asked for you. And he
must have a problem. J.A.'s not
the kind of man that needs much
help." I could tell by the way Dad
spoke that he had a great amount
of respect for that crazy old
It was the worst night of my
life. I kept seeing that dog
jumping on me and ripping my
eyeballs out, dragging me
through the woods, chewing on
my elbow......

me up at first light. I rode up in

In most cases, even though
that line is exceedingly fine, it

in, rather than buying plastic

By: Wesley R. Ramsey

There's A Very Fine Line Between 'Frugal' and 'Tight'

bags. Being frugal is also related
to saving string because you
might need a piece one day, or
saving slivers of soap bars, like
my momma used to do, placing
them in a jar, putting in a drop or
two of water and making sham-
poo of them.
Being tight and being frugal
are two different things.

gal, but there are those who think
I am tight. I have a son, who peo-
ple think is frugal, but actually,
he is tight; which is another para-
graph later on in this article.
I like to get out in the back-
yard, inside my shed, when I
have an hour or two,. and cut up
boards, hammer and nail and
Just make a general mess. I pick
up boards here and there, much
like a. scavenger. I save the trim-
mings off boards I have cut, be-
cause I am always looking for a
small piece to serve as a chock, to

prop up something, to use for a
cushion when I clamp something,
or to test out a paint color, check
a saw cut for size, or any number
of useful things. I even have a
son-in-law who tells me I don't
throw a board away until it be-
comes sawdust.
Most of the boards I cut up
and nail together, are scraps I
have picked up somewhere.
Only recently I hit a bonanza
when I sashayed by Arden Ste-
phens' new house on Palm Boule-
vard to see how he was coming
along. Arden had a pile of pieces
of cedar stacked up in his car-
Now, Arden borders on being
tight, so I couldn't imagine him
tossing away those good boards
and I checked with him. "Arden,"
I said, "What are you going to do
with these chunks of cedar laying
in this pile in your carport?"
'Well," he said, 'Your son,
next door, had asked me for

them, so he could use them for
"Use it for firewood" I ex-
claimed. 'You'd allow all those
good boards to be used for fire-

the wheels to turning inside Ard-
en's normally frugal [as opposed
to 'tight'] head. 'You're right," he
said. "It would be a shame to
bum those big pieces of beautiful
cedar wood, especially after I paid
so much for them."
You see? I struck a tender
nerve with Arden. You have to
know how to talk to these frugal
[as opposed to tight] people, in or-
der to get what you want Arden
suddenly remembered how much
he had paid for those boards and
his Scottish soul rebelled at the
thought of seeing them go up in
smoke as firewood. Even sea-
soned oak firewood didn't cost
that much

Arden pondered the situation
a minute, and said. "I'll tell you
what You load up those boards
and carry them home and I'll tell
my neighbor [my son], someone
stole those pieces of cedar."
So, I loaded up the cedar
boards and went merrily on my
way with my new-found treasure.
I don't know what I will use those
boards for, but something will
come along and in the mean-
while, I saved some good boards
from the wood stove.

I'M LIABLE TO be in trouble
with my son-Arden's neighbor-
for taking his free firewood, but
that's life.
Whatever I decide to do with
those cedar scraps, it will be a
sight more constructive than
burning it in a wood stove.
But, let's set things in their
proper perspective here. Arden
would have taken those boards
back to the hardware store for

credit if he thought he could have
talked them in to IL So, Arden
isn't just your free-hearted soft
touch, who'll give you something
simply for the asking. He weighs
the matter before making a deci-
slqn on something of value.
And my son-Arden's neigh-
bor-is no better. The other day,
his wife borrowed my station wag-
on for a couple of hours and I got
to drive his "used" pick-up truck.
"Be careful with it," he said. I
thought he was being solicitous
of the truck, but he was actually
thinking of me!
I said, 'Willie, you need an-
other truck. That thing's a disas-
ter." But all I got for my advice
was, "Oh, it just needs a little
work here and there." It would
take a whole column to tell you
about the work that heap needs!
But, those neighbors are two
peas in a pod. He won't buy an-
other truck until that one just
falls apart in the middle of the

Before the SBA team and the
business development week came
to Port St. Joe last week, very few
people in the community knew or
cared what a Small Business In-
cubator really was and what it
Thursday, Dr. Lewis Baber,
director of a new Small Business
Incubator being formed in Bay
County, presently under the aus-
pices of Gulf Coast Community
College, to serve the Bay, Gulf
and Franklin County, outlined
their program and purpose to the
'Port St. Joe Rotary Club at their
noon meeting. Dr. Baber was in
Port St. Joe Thursday, as a part
of the Chamber of Commerce's
Business Development Week. Dr.
Baber was to outline the services
of the Small Business Incubator
to those interested in improving
or starting a small business.
Baber said that 80% of the
new business ventures, which
seek the services and expertise of
the Small Business Incubator,
are successful. By contrast, of
those who venture into business
with no guidance, half of all non-
franchise businesses fail in their
first year of operation because of
lack of business operation exper-
tise. 'They may be offering a
needed and popular product, but
just lack the expertise of planning
for unexpected situations which
almost always come to new busi-
nesses," he said.
Of those same new business-
es, 65% do not survive five years
of operation.
'Why?" Dr. Baber asked.
"Simply because they lack basic
managerial skills."
He pointed out that small
business accounts for about 90%
of new jobs which are introduced
into a community. He pointed out
that 98% of small businesses in
the United States employ fewer
than 100 employees, with the
greater majority of them employ-
ing fewer than 20.
The Business Incubator is de-
signed to help new small busi-
nesses evade these harsh and
discouraging statistics. '"We pro-
vide the technical expertise to

Emotional Abuse

Comes In Many


'. Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.

Much as been written and discussed lately about child abuse.,
There is not much room for discussion when the abuse takes the
form of beatings or starvation. The evidence of broken bones or
emaciation is readily seen. What is not so readily recognizable is ev-
idence of emotional abuse.
As children grow they learn by example and by trial and error.
Praise and encouragement do much to encourage growth and ac-
complishment. Unfortunately, there are children who have never
done one thing that was ever right for some parents. This continual
bombardment of a child with derogatory statements like,' "Can't you
ever do anything right?", 'You are just like uncle James, and he
never amounted to anything either."; "How can you be so dumb?",
and on and on. This attitude is very ego destructive. It undermines
the child's self confidence and makes him unable ,to develop the
poise and confidence to which he is entitled as he grows older.
Children should not be shamed or belittled. I find parents will
often try to shame children about urine and bowel accidents. It is
fine to expect toilet training, but do this with encouragement and
reward and not by making the child ashamed for physical reactions
in areas he is not yet able to control.
Parents should also not allow brothers or sisters to cause emo-
tional abuse. Older children must learn to allow younger children
room to grow and not continually be telling them, 'You can't do
that", 'You'll never be able to do this as good as I can", "Mom (or
Dad) loves me more than you."
In step family situations, children have been known to tell other
children, 'Your mother (or father) doesn't love you. They went off
and left you." Children never recover from family situations when
they hear such things day in and day out for years.
What has been said in reference to parents also translates to
teachers and coaches. No coach should, be yelling obscenities at a
child ior denigrating his efforts to play. The child want to de well or
he would not be there. Much more progress will be made with en-
couragement and praise than by negative reactions.
Fehr is another form of emotional abuse. There are children
who live in fear because of physical abuse. Sometimes the fears are
more detrimental than the physical abuse, completely inhibiting
personality and physical development.
In conclusion, a child needs the support of a loving, caring fam-
ily. When he meets challenges and obstacles in the world outside
the home, he needs to be able to turn homeward for the strength to
meet and overcome these problems.

Hunting Replacements for Annuals?

Carter Gives Advice On Annuals Which Can Stand Summer Heat

By Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Director
This is the time of year when
many annual flowers are fading
and gardeners are hunting the
replacements which will survive
our summer months. During our
warm season, from May to Octo-
ber, high temperatures and
humidity and torrential rains
together with a host of diseases
and insects make the growing of
flowers very difficult. The species
that enjoy summer heat in the
north may not survive a summer
month in Florida so selection of
proper annuals becomes very
Luckily we have some sum-
mer annuals which will withstand
the worst our summer has to
offer with only a minimum of
* For summer color in these
areas receiving full sun most of
the day stick to periwinkle, portu-
laca, salvia, zinnias, marigolds

and celosia. In those areas receiv-
ing some morning sun or partial
shade all day, try begonias and
impatiens. All these flowers will
reward you with brilliant summer
Periwinkle is a perennial in
South Florida but is grown as an
annual in north and west Florida.
This attractive flowering plant
thrives where most plants would
soon perish. It withstands the dri-
est sites and full sun and is so
well adapted that it easily escapes
from cultivation. Periwinkle
requires little attention and pro-
vides a mass of white, rose-pink
or lavender flowers throughout
the summer. The foliage is also
attractive and the plant can be
used as a ground cover. It can be
easily grown from seed or

Another excellent summer
flower is portulaca, also called
moss rose. This small annual,
hardly six inches high, is unsur-
passed for brilliant, white, yellow,
orange, rose and scarlet flowers.
Flowers may be single or double
and resemble small roses.
For brilliant masses of color,
try salvia or scarlet sage. The one
to two foot plants produce dense
spikes of scarlet, white, salmon
or purple flowers up until fall.
Plant red salvia in front of a dark
green or gray background for an
outstanding display of color.
Perhaps the most popular
summer annual is the zinnia.
Zinnias are not available in a
remarkable variety of sizes, flower
forms and colors. Dwarf varieties
only six to eight inches tall are
available as well as the giant
types having flowers seven inches
across. Zinnias grow well even on
poor soils if planted in full sun
and watered when necessary. The
major problems with zinnias is a
disease called powdery mildew. If
planted in full sun where leaves
dry out quickly, the disease prob-
lem is minimized.
Almost as diverse a flower as
zinnia is the marigold. These
plants are almost trouble free and.
are available in dwarf six inch

Law enforcement efforts
during 1990 resulted in the
eradication of over 92 million
dollars worth of marijuana and
330 arrests statewide. During the
year this program yielded asset
forfeitures of $4.7 million up over
1300 percent. These are some of
the findings included in the 1990
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement annual report on
marijuana eradication activities
in Florida.
The statewide domestic
marijuana eradication program,
which began in 1981, is a cooper-
ative effort among Florida's law
enforcement community. The
program was enhanced In 1990
with the assignment of regional
coordinators in each of the five
regional operations bureaus of
FDLE. Each of these coordinators
is responsible for continued
assistance to local agencies, as
well as coordinating operations
with the Florida State Law
Enforcement Domestic Marijuana
Eradication Task Force,
comprised of the Florida Highway
Patrol, the Florida Game and
Fresh Water Fish Commission,
the Florida Marine Patrol, the
Florida Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services, and
FDLE. In addition the eradication
program was bolstered by
support from the Florida National
Guard and the Florida wing of the
Civil Air Patrol.
As in past years, the majority
of marijuana cultivation has
taken place in the state's Panhan-
dle area, however cultivated

marijuana activity was reported
in all but two of Florida's 67
counties with rural areas favored
as growing sites. Over 1100 sites
were located during the year.
During 1990 there was a 150
percent increase in the detection
of greenhouse operations as
growers look to bolster the quality
of their crop and evade detection
by law enforcement. Santa Rosa
County led the state with 24,122
plants eradicated and 17 arrests
during 1990. Holmes County was
next in plants eradicated with
12,308 and eight arrests.
Citizen involvement continues
to be essential to the success of
the marijuana eradication
program. FDLE Commissioner
Tom Moore said, "Our telephone
hotline (1-800-342-SPOT) offers
citizens a direct link with law
enforcement if they see or
suspect any kind of illegal activi-
ty. This citizen surveillance has
helped spot not only areas of
cultivation but booby traps
located near marijuana growing
sites. Through aggressive enforce-
ment and emphasis on public
awareness and training, Florida
will continue to work to reduce
the domestic crop in 1991."

seldom a problem.

Farris Joins
Coalition Team
L. Alden Farris was among
some 40 city and county leaders
who met in Tallahassee last week.
The Port St. Joe City Clerk joined
with others to form a coalition
which will address problems com-

MB City Workers
CIP members and their fami-
lies were hosts and entertainers
for all the city workers of Mexico
Beach City Hall, and their fami-
lies, May 30, at the end of Canal
Park. CIP members served ham-
burgers, wieners, baked beans,
potato salad and more. The food
was excellent, right down'to the
homemade cakes and cookies.
There was 93 plus in attendance
at the very relaxed fellowship
which was enjoyed by all.
All projects are now complet-
ed and CIP members will wind
down considerably for the next
three months due to the heat, but
will get back to work as usual at
their September meeting.
There are still a few more

I Everyone Has Them

Everyone has problems. And
some of those problems cause
heartache. This applies to Chris-
tians as well as to those who have
not yet received the Lord.
In my lifetime I have only
known one pastor who was bold
enough to say "I never have a
blue Monday. I am always at
peace." That was the same pastor
who also told his people that they
would go to hell if they failed to
tithe their income.
Those kinds of statements
may make the person saying
then feel good, but they don't
bring much comfort to the con-
People who read the Bible
soon discover that it is filled with
stories about human problems,

broken hearts, and insoluble
dilemmas. Jesus himself was
called "a man of sorrow and
acquainted with grief."
So please don't be surprised
when you discover trouble and
painful problems in your life.
Problems will come from circum-
stances, other people, any your-
self. You can depend on that.
The big issue isn't whether or
not you will have a problem. It's
what you do with a problem when
you get it.
Some problems surprise us.
They are the accidents that can't
be foreseen.
Many problems are caused by
the actions of other people. The
problems that hurt the worst are
brought on by those we love the

But most of our troubles are
generated by our own actions.
These are the ones we have the
most control over.
Here are some suggestions for
dealing with problems. Especially
the self-generated kind.
Does the problem recur
often? If it does, you may be able
to alter your behavior or the cir-
cumstances to prevent a recur-
rence. Maybe something you are
doing or failing to do is causing
the problem to come back.
Is it a problem other people
have too? If so, look around and
see what someone else has done.
Compare solutions to see which
will work best for you.
Is it a problem that could be,
avoided if you had greater knowl-
edge? Maybe you can find some

The USDA Soil Conservation
Service (SCS) opened a soil sur-
vey office in the old courthouse
building in Wewahitchka two-
and-one-half years ago to begin a
soil survey of Gulf County. Since
then all of the soil mapping of the
county has been completed.
A soil survey is a document
consisting of soil maps and infor-
mation on local soils. They are
prepared by soil scientists who
make soil borings with a hand
auger and describe the topogra-
phy and landscape. Other soil
properties are determined
through laboratory tests. This in-
formation is used to predict soil
behavior for a host of uses. These

Dental literature is replete
with facts on the effectiveness
of fluoride in preventing tooth
decay. How does it work? Sug-
ars in the mouth set up a favora-
ble environment for the growth
and development of germs.
These germs produce acids that
cause decay and leave behind
deposits that injure the gums.
One of the big defenses against
this process is fluoride which
builds up the resistance of teeth
to these acids. It should be in
your child's drinking water so it
can be absorbed in his growing
teeth; it should also be in your
child's toothpaste, and applied
regularly on his teeth by the
family dentist.

Sea Turtles

Listed As

Sea turtles belong to a class
of animals known as Reptiles,
which include snakes, lizards, al-
ligators and crocodiles. These
cold-blooded vertebrates, usually
lay white, "leathery" eggs. They
breathe by means of lungs and
their heart has three chambers,
except crocodiles, Which have a
four-chambered heart and an ex-
ternal covering of scales or horny
plates cover their outer body.
Sea turtles have "flown"
through the Earth's seas for more
than 175 million years. Seven
species of sea turtles populate the
world. Five of the seven species
occur in Florida waters. Each
species has its own particular
dietary, habitat and behavioral
requirements and patterns.
Sea turtles found in United
States' waters include the family
Chelonidae (hard-shell turtles),
the Ridley, green, hawksbill and
loggerhead. Leatherbacks, which
have a rubbery "skin", are the
only living members of the family
During the months of May
through September the female
loggerhead (Carettal leaves the
sea and hauls her 200 to 350.

All sea turtle species are con-
sidered to be threatened or en-
dangered under federal and state
laws. In 1969, the Lacey Act was
amended to restrict human con-
sumption of these marine rep-
tiles. In the same year, the En-
dangered Species Act was passed,
placing bans on depleted species.
The 1973 Endangered Species
Act replaced the original act mak-
ing it illegal to harass, harm, pur-
sue, hunt, shoot, wound, kill,
capture, or collect endangered
species. The act also protects the
turtle nesting habitats. If you' find

Fall Victim to Receding Sand

By Pallas Gandy
The weatherman says we
have been experiencing some un-
usually high amounts of rain for
this time of year. My yard disap-

washing out, and my roof has
sprung a leak. I am sure that I'm
not the only one in Gulf County
experiencing this natural phe-
Have you seen what the unu-
sually high amounts of rain fall
and high winds are doing to our
receding beaches? Scientists who
study beach erosion have already
commented that our Gulf County
beaches are eroding away at one
foot per year. At that rate we will
see the spit separate from the
cape in our lifetime. Scientists
also say that coastal erosion is a
natural process and that in a pe-
riod of five to 10 years, some are-
as along our coastline will fill up
again as the natural lateral drift
moves it s ribbon df watery sand
in a westerly migration.
In the meantime, those that
have chosen to build on our
sandy beaches are watching the
sand drip off in chunks and wash
away into the pounding surf. The
temporary primary sand dunes
are washing away along with the
sand under any houses built too
close to these sand dunes.
There are creatures who de-
posit their eggs just under the
surface of our sandy beaches this
time of year also. The loggerhead
sea turtle (Caretta caretta). They
too are experiencing nest wash
out. Five sea turtle eggs were
found washed up on the tip of the
point. The turtle eggs came to

rest at the feet of some pelicans
that were resting and watching
over their vast watery expanse.
Storm run off can destroy and
change coastal property very rap-
idly. Now you know why most lo-
cal people chose NOT to build
their house upon the sand.

The wreck of the Empire Mica serves as the home to hundreds
of finned friends of the deep. When we explore into this foreign envi-
ronment, we find ourselves as the awkward, unnatural visitor re-
garded by most sealife as interestingyet threatening. This appeared
to be the general attitude of theK14-f6ot bull shark Erik Tomlinson
encountered on the Mica four weeks 0o.
Erik was divin was diving with a groiofvers aboard the Golly Whop-
per charter boat with Capt. Wayhe Frasure out of Captain Black's
Dive Center. Equipped with his dive computer, Erik was able to
stay in the water after the rest of the group completed their first
dive. For this reason, h e was the only diver to catch a glimpse of the
massive creature.
According to Erik, the shark silently glided past him very near
the wreck giving him a scale bywhii 0to measure the shark's size.
Needless to say, Erik's initial objcmtifof spearfishing was immedi-
ately given up. The bull shark is'geriirally regarded as wary of div-
ers unless they engage in activity tI4tmight furnish them with a
free meal, i.e., spearfishing. .
Fish Identification books given the average size of the bull
shark as six to nine feet with a maxaium size of 12 feet. Now, some
who know Erik personally may ppss, this off as "another one of his
big fish stories" as everything unp erwater appears 25 percent larg-
er. Much to his delight, another ig bng of the same shark on the
Mica was reported by a group of:N vyk4vers from Panama City.
Is this to be regarded as the enid f Erik's 15-year diving career?
On the contrary, veteraA divers arely have the opportunity to
encounter a creature of this sizeeand 'scarcity. We rather envy him
as the sighting of a 14-foot bull shark might only come once in a

It takes many hours and much
research for a teacher to make
learning an exciting, fun
project for his or her pupils.
Besides preparing lessons and
grading papers, teachers plan
Special assemblies, work with
school clubs, take students on
field trips, monitor lunch room
and playground activities, and
even decorate their classrooms
with interesting displays.
Add to these activities their
attendance at teacher's meet-
ings, parents' conferences, and
PTA meetings, and you can
see, teachers work long and
hard. It's no wonder they are
looking forward to summer
vacation as enthusiastically as
their students.
