The project supervisor
told The Star photographer
the two sections of the

While on Auto
With the July Fourth holiday
coming up, Gulf County's law en-
forcement community says there
willbe more people than usual pn
the highways, causing a situation
in which both drivers and pedes-
trians should exercise more care
One of the prime concerns of
the law enforcement officials is
the operation of automobiles and
the new Florida laws surrounding
their operation. Two of the new
Florida laws which should be ad-
hered to are the laws governing
the use of seat belts and child re-
straints while the vehicle is in
motion. These two actions by peo-
ple operating their motor vehicle
result in more saved lives than
any other act of precaution avail-
able 'to them.
Sheriff Al Harrison, Port St.
Joe Police Chief Carl Richter and
Wewahitchka Police Chief Cecil
Donaldson join in issuing this
word of advice on safety during
this holiday period.
"People should especially see
that their child is safely re-
strained in their automobiles
both because it is the law and for
the child's protection," Chief
According to the AAA Child
Safety division, motor vehicle ac-
cidents are the leading cause of
death and injury for American
children, ranking ahead of all
other types of accidents and
claim more lives than any child-

Vehicle traffic no longer faces the way 98. Cars started streaming across

The County Commission
solved, their empty legal services,
budget problem by infusing it
with additional funds from other
budgets in a special meeting
In an attempt to revive the le-
gal services budget before the
new month begins, the Commis-
siori transferred an additional
$6,000 from contingencies to
make sure the bills are paid for
July and the remainder. of the
current budget year.
It was brought to the atten-
tion of the Commission Iin their
regular meeting last Tuesday, by
Commissioner Billy Traylor that
the fund was dry. He warned
there probably wasn't enough
money remaining in the fund to
pay for June services. Traylor
said the Commission had to do
something about the situation,
since the County could not oper-
ate at a deficit.
The Commission had budget-
ed $18,000 in the legal fund, but.
redrew their legal service contract.
after the budget had been set and
didn't adjust the funds designed
to cover the service. 1
Commissioner Traylor insist-
ed the Commission either supple-
ment the budget with additional
funds or operate for the remain-
der of the budget year without le-
gal services. The Commission de-
cided at the special meeting,
Tuesday, to supplement the bud-

The subject of redistricting
the five voting districts in Gulf
County came up for discussion at
the last meeting, with additional
input Tuesday. A committee had
previously been appointed by the
Board to study methods of re-
turnipg to the at-large voting
method and still maintain a guar-
antee of minority representation
on the Commission. This commit-
tee has been formed for about
four months and one of their
number-attorney Tom Gibson-
gave their first report Tuesday.
Gibson said they had come
up with a system which has been
acceptable to the courts and still
maintains minority representa-
tion. They were offering the sys-
tem as the first suggestion for
any changes, in Gulf County
which would conform to a majori-
ty vote experienced at the past re-
election, last November.
Gibson briefly outlined a sys-
tem. he identified as the "Single
Transferable Vote" system. Gib-
son said it was the only one of
three systems, currently ap-
proved and in use elsewhere,
which would assure the election
of a minority to 'the Commission.
He explained the "Single
Transferable Vote" as a system in
which there would be only one
voting district in the county.
There would be:no district restric-
Lions on either candidates for
election or electors.
Gibson explained, "Even if
the leading vote getter received
80% of those votes cast, he could
be credited with ..no more than
17%, with the remainder of his
votes going to the next highest
vote getter; his excess over 1.7%
going to the third, and so on until
five members were selected. All
Commissioners would be elected
or re-elected at the same time."
Under the ,committee's pro-.
posed voting method, second pri-
maries would be eliminated.
complicated, butf he said that
with a little study people would
find that it was really more sim-
ple than the present system.
"Best of all, 'it is approved by
the courts as being protective of
all elements of the population,"
The Commission is faced with
a need to re-district voting sec-
tions of the County, if at least one
person files a complaint concern-
ing the districts as they are now

It bothers me that I can't
think, of the man's name. I know
its been thirty-five years or so-
but. still, the important folks
you've got to remember. It seems
like we called'him Mr. Gene. He
ran the ice house back home.
And for you younger readers who
grew up .on 'Sesame :Street and
chocolate-covered Coco Puffs,
that won't mean a thing. But for
those in the crowd that used to
stroll out each morning and pick
up the just-bought bottles, of
06 milk, for those who sat in church
and snickered because the seam
in the back of Mrs. Finsterwall's
hose was crooked again, for those
who actually remember when Joe
DiMaggio played-well, for you,
Mr., Gene was very real.
Sometimes on hot afternoons
:we'd stop by his rather small
building tucked over on the east
side of the Brush Brothers Milling
Company parking lot. I remember
it had a tin roof.
"Howdy, Mr. Gene. Sure is
'Yes, it is, boys."
'Yep, 'bout the hottest day
"Mr. Gene, you reckon this is
the hottest it's been this year?"
"Could be, boys."
There was just a hint of a
smile at the corner of his mouth.
It was what we had been looking
"Mr. Gene, my throat is near
'Yeah, Mr. Gene, I'm near
'bout as dried out as my dad's
'This is a real sure-'nuff heat
Mr. Gene would ease :the two
front legs of his straight-back
chair back down to that wood
plank porch and reach-for the ice
pick stuck head-high beside the
d oor; 'I" reckon we could 'bust off
S a couple of small chunks for
ji some extra-thirsty ball players."
There ain't no way in the
world you could ,explain to that
'Sesame Street crowd just exactly
how important Mr. Gene wasl
The 4th of July was his big
day. Back in 1958, we referred to
it a lot as Independence Day. Ear-
ly in the morning folks would be
lined up around Brush Brothers'
parking 16t waiting their turn at
Mr.' Gene's. I used to marvel' at
how much' he 'had in that tiny
building. You know the old rolu-
tine where the small car drives up
and people just keep getting out,
one right after the other without
stopping? Every" time I see it I
think of that old ice house. Mr.
Gene would bring out a 25 pound
block and set it in your number 3
washtub. Or, you. could get :a 50
pound block. And he always had
the coldest watermelon! He must
'a had five thousand in that 12 by
12 ice house. I think, on the 4th,
he had a melon iced down for
each family .in town. Of course,
like most everyone else, we had
plenty of watermelons in the field;
but we still bought one from Mr.
Gene. Dad would chop up a block
of ice in that tub, we'd add just
enough water, 'rub the sawdust
off that melon, and drop it in our
ice water. I'm telling you, we were
ready to celebrate,
We'd ease on uptown and
pick out a. good spot. The parade
never was too much. There'd be a
pick-up with a bunch of. flags.
And the fire truck, of course. And
the high school band. They only
knew one marching song, and
they played it pretty badly. And
Mr. Melton would have his hors-
es. Bobby Jack and Hollis would
toss a Whole pack of fire crackers
under those horses. .They'd go
wild! I remember one Fourth,
Charlotte got throwed straddle
the old World War I cannon. It
would sometimes take half the af-
ternoon to round up all the hors-
es....My Dad often allowed as how
the fire crackers sounded better
than the band.
Mayor Y. D. Moore would give
a short forty-five minute speech
that nobody listened to, Mrs. Pur-
vis would read a poem so softly
that I could never hear, and Mr.
Mclver and a couple of other war
heroes would march smartly up
to the flag pole to present the col-
ors. The band played The Star
My Dad wasn't making fun of
them now. He was ram-rod
straight, hand over heart, eyes
glued to the red, white, and blue.
I copied him. The Whole town
seemed to swell with pride.
Even the horses stood still.
Dinner was on the ground
and mostly bar-b-que and corn
on the cob. I'd eat them spareribs
jikether wasn't any tomorroW. J
wagvs way too full for the pie eating
contest. Wouldn't-'a made any dif-
ference any way. Big Trudy Co-
zart won that thing every year.
Me and Buddy would 'a won the
three-legged race,| but our rope
came loose and Buddy tripped.
About four o'clock we'd cut
the watermelons. Sonnnn, Mr.
Gene's ice water had 'em so cold
they'd hurt your teeth. I've never
had watermelonlike it before or
I had a chance in the seed
spitting contest; I'd hand-picked
some heavy seeds....Hollis Mayo

qualified! I've been practicing for
30 years, and I think I could take
Hollis now. Trouble is, we're not;
having the contest any more..

don't seem to do It like we used
to. I think it started down hill the

Badkiig a Boat Trailer Was Never a Piece of Cake for Me
I LET HIM TALK me into it
before I thought about the idea.
Emotions 'shoved good sense
aside and before realized what I
was letting "myself in for I had
agreed to go fishing with grand-
'What," you 'might say,' "is
wrong with agreeing to go fishing,
with your grandson? Why, one of.

So, I thought about it and
that's exactly the reason I said I
would go fishing with Bill Thurs-
day afternoon .. in the Brothers
River with him driving the
boat.., by ourselves with an
ultra-light rod and a beetle spin
DID 'YOU EVER TRY to use
'one of those things? Did you feel
like you had to do it perfect,'
creating the impression you knew
exactly what you were doing?
That's a necessity, you know,
when you go fishing with one of
You can already walk on wa-
ter, as far as your grandchildren
are concerned, and you realize,
don't you, they actually can, as
far as you are concerned. So, I let
emotion take over from common
sense and we took off for the
Brothers River with nothing but
our ultra-light rods and a couple
dozen beetle spin lures.
I had warnings, you under-
stand, like, "Bill can handle that
ultra-light. He fishes with his
room mate at .college every,
chance they get." But, what doed
such a warning matter? I had
fished with Bill before, back wheri
he was a teen- ager and Kyle Grif-i
fin came 'along. They stayed ini
the water about as much as they
stayed In the boat. They splashed
around, yelled, laughed, got hung
up, thrashed around in the boat
and were constantly opening a
TO BEGIN WITH, it had been
four years, at least, since I had
backed a station wagon with a!
boat trailer attached to the rear
end. Boat trailers don't back any
easier now than they did then.
Four years of inactivity in that'
field, of endeavor, definitely had
me at a disadvantage so far as:
placing that trailer right where I
wanted it. Mytrailer backing has
been done by son-in-law David
Horton for the past few years,
since we usually go fishing to-
gether when, we go.
Right off the bat, I backed too
far getting into position to attach
the trailer. I darn near pushed
the boat trailer smack through
one of those new City garbage
cans, pushed a wooden fence
loose and' re-located a riding
mower; all in one operation.
I got the boat trailer, though.
Unloading wasn't much bet-'
ter. If you have ever been to Ho-
ward Creek, you know you can't
see your trailer behind a station
wagon while backing down to the
edge of the water.
That was my problem .
backing to the edge. I drowned
that boat trailer! Sunk the whole
thing.- I salvaged some self-
respect for, that faux pas by
claiming I always did it that way
so I wouldn't have to wade out
into the water to push the boat
off the trailer. Floated the bugger
LUCKILY, I WAS pulling an
empty trailer out of the water and
not a loaded one, because the old
station wagon strained and spun
its wheels mightily to get back up
on the dry hill. It wouldn't have

I couldn't stand it and broke
mine out for my very first try at

used one, practice a few times be-

Well, to bring a long story to
a short ending, Bill caught the
fish and fended off the bites,
while I floundered around in the
boat, splashed in the water and
opened up the cold drinks.

,' There is a southern tradition about funerals that is quite differ-
ent from funerals in other pa4fo'the country. At least, that's what
I've bIen' told. l'venever'-beent to a funeral out of the South. As a
matter of factvitveinly beep' out of the south a few times, and
thatwas afe':tiies todd'tiany for me.
Nevertheless, funeral services and arrangements do vary ac-
cordting, to,ieligious aihd.d ethnic traditions, and that's true in the
South as well as the rest of the world, I'm told.
Compared to a typical southern,%country funeral, a Cathblic fu-
neral is'different. I've beento.a Catholic funeral or two. I've never
beehto an Irish ,funeral, Catholic- or otherwise, but I'm told that,
they, too, are different 'from the southern funeral, A black, south-
ern' funeral .although, sometimes more emotional; is- more like a
white southern funeral. .
'A funeral is the last event I want to attend. Don't get me
wrong-I want to pay my respects to.the deceased- if he was a family
member'or friend and give the family any support I can, but funer-
als are emotionally stressful to me. I'm sure there are many other :
. people who feel the same way., so, if you don't want to come to my
funeral. I won't be mad. Just don't tell!me before I die.
But If I must go to a funeral, and I've been,to quite a few lately,
give me an old-fashioned, southern, country, Assembly of God fu-
neral. My father, mother, two sisters, brother and brother-in-law
were all given this type of funeral when they passed on. My father
was 'lie last one -that the people from ,the church sat up all night
with because it was about that time that sitting up all night with.
the dead faded from the funeral scene.
There are several things about a -southern funeral that I like.
First of all, most of the people who attend, relatives and friends, uin-
derstand your loss and grieve with you.. People become- closer with
the loss of a loved one, or friend, and these people have no fear of
.If you've, never been to a country. southern, Assembly of God
funeral, you probably won't believe what I'm about to tell you. The
people from the church take care of the family of the deceased as if
they were their own. Men and women from the church bring food
for the family and friends, they serve it, and take care of any house-
keeping duties that may arise. They are careful not to get In the
way, but they are always there if needed.
This, or course, gives the family time to make the necessary ar-
rangements, to greet long-lost friends or family members, and to
comfort each other in this timeof loss. -
Country> folks are loving and emotional. If you don't want your,
neck hugged and people crying on your shoulder and telling you
how much they loved the deceased, then don't go to a country fu-
neral in the South. If you can't bear to see a preacher cry his way,'
through a eulogy and then, give a rousing sermon to the congrega-
tion to repent and save their souls, then stay away from a country
funeral, 'especially an Assembly of God funeral.
A funeral Is a stressful event at best. It sure helps when there
are loving, helpful, caring people around like the ones at the funer-
als of my family members. And I'm sure that'strue with most relig-
ious organizations, be they Assembly of God, Baptist, Methodist, or
This past weekend, members
of the GulfAmate.ur Radio Society
(GARS) participated in the Ameri-

estimated that some 35.000 Ama-
teur Radio Operators,"' better
known as HAMS, participated in
The GARS are composed of
HAM operators from the Gulf

During times of disaster,
..such as hurricanes and other
emergencies, Amateur Radib Op-
erators support their local com-
munities with short and long
raged. portable communications.
Some operators volunteer their
time and equipment to join Jump
Teams. These volunteers travel
from their local areas to more dis-
tant areas to assist with commu-
nications. Jump Team volunteers
from throughout the United
States traveled to southern Dade
County to assist in emergency
communications during Hurri-
cane Andrew. -
'We had one complete station
up and running, on emergency
power, within 45 minutes," Prid-
geon reported. "Thirty minutes
later, we had two more transmit-
ters and a computer operating,
talking to other HAMS in Panama
City, Miami. and Los Angeles."
Various modes of communi-
cations were used, including
Morse Code, high speed digital
(computer interfaced with radio),
and voice communications. *
The newly reorganized Gulf
Amateur Radio Society operates
closely with Gulf County Emer-
.gency Management Coordinator
Larry Wells. The HAVIS have
hopes that a new Emergency Op-
erating Center will be located in
the Gulf County Courthouse be-
fore the end of. the year. 'The.
Hurricane Season is here, and
emergency communications could
be needed at anytime," stated
GARS Vice-President Jim Bucha-
nan. "Field Day was a chance for
us to find bur weaknesses; so
that we could Improve on them."
"Field Day is not only a simu-
lated emergency exercise; it is
competition between Amateur Ra-
dio. Clubs throughout the U. S.
and Canada," stated GARS Field
Day Chairman Luie Holland. 'We
are graded by the number of oth-
er stations we contact within a
given period of, time, the number
of transmitters used, the type of'
power used, and several other
points. We used an emergency
generator for all our power: other
clubs used battery and solar pow-
er; others, energy from the wind
to -charge batteries for -transmit-
bARS members estimate that
between 750 and 1.000 contacts
were. made with other HAMS in
North America in slightly less
than 24 hours. The exact total
will ,not be known for several
days. 'We don't expect to win the
competition, but w6e got our feet
wet," said Pridgeon. '"Amateur ra-
dio is open to all; we encourage
others to join us. We have mem-
bers as young as 15 In our
group. All it takes is a little time
studying to pass the exams."

tend their appreciation to Nils

Holcomb said fishing is best
for children during spring when'
fish spend much of their time in
shallow water near shore. The
habits of game fish such as large-
mouth bass, crappie, bluegill,
redear sunfish and other popular
freshwater fish are perfectly suit-
ed to children using cane poles
because many fish often are
found near logs, brush or over-
hanging limbs. "
Once children have mastered
using cane poles, they may want
to try their hand at spin-casting
or spinning reel outfits; Holcomb
said. These require more skill,
however, with a little practice
youngsters usually can learn how
to use them in a short time.
Children less than 16 years
of age are not required to have a
fishing license in Florida. Anglers
using cane poles with live or nat-
ural baits also are not required to
have a freshwater fishing license
if they are fishing in their home
Taking children fishing' for
the first time can be a challenge
for even an experienced angler,
not to mention someone who
doesn't do much fishing.
Today's world of complex
fishing equipment can add frus-
tration to a fishing trip that, to
children at least, is not complete
without catching lots of fish.
Cane poles help reduce problems
associated with more complex
tackle while allowing children to
catch plenty of fish that will make
them want to go fishing again.
Smokie Holcomb, director of
the Florida Game and Fresh Wa-
ter Fish Commission's Division of
Fisheries, said a cane pole is an
economical initial investment aid
just the ticket for beginning an-
glers. A good cane pole outfit,
complete with hook, line, float
and sinker is an inexpensive way
to get children started fishing. *
Here are a few tips on outfit-
ting first-time anglers. All sup-
plies can be purchased at fishing
*Cane poles are generally,
quite long when purchased., They
can be tailored for children by
cutting a few feet off the base to,
make them a little easier for kids,
*Use as much line as your
cane pole is long, or perhaps a
foot more. Six-to-14-pound test
monofilament line works well.
*Add just enough weight to
keep your float or bobber in posi-
tion. Place a single sinker or split
shot on the line about six inches
from the hood.
*Attach a float to your line at
whatever depth you want ,to sus-
pend your bait, but only use a,,
bobber large enough to "work" a
bait well. A fish should be able to'
tug it under easily. Although larg-
er floats may help children detect
bites, smaller ones encourage fish,

Parrish Tells otarians of ANRR
The Apalachicola Northern
Railroad and its growth over the
years was the subject' used by
Railroad Vice-President .Wayne
Parrish in an address to the Ro-
tary Club last Thursday.
Parrish said. the idea of the
ANRR was born in 1903 when
some investors from St. Louis,
Missouri decided to pick up
where the impetus for the build-
ing of old St. Joseph left off. They
wanted to build a railroad which
followed the Apalachicola River
and reap the business. from the
lumber and naval stores opera-:
tions along the route. Originally,
they decided to stop .at Apalachi-
cola, shifting their cargoes to wa-
ter carriers for continued ship-
ment on to foreign markets.
The road was completed to
Apalachicola about 1907 but in-
vestors found out What entre-
preneurs in 1837 had already
found out. Apalachicola Bay was
not deep enough to accommodate
sea-going cargo .vessels. I
So, it was on to Port St. Joe,
which was nothing but a handful

Action Hot h Heavy at Gulf County way
A packed house at Gulf
County Speedway on Saturday
night saw Panama City's Ernie
Thomas in the newly-refurbished
Baskin-Robbins race car walk
away with the top prize in the 50-
lap Mid-Season Championship
Race for Bomber/Enduro cars.
Thomas, who started the race in
15th position in a strong field of
19, cars, fought his way through
spinning race cars and flying
mud to take the lead away from
DeFuniak Springs's Jay Jones on
lap 44. Jones, who finished the
tortuous grind in second place,
bettered his position in the track
point standings by moving up to
third while Thomas Jumped from
15th to sixth.
Whether it was the Bomber
Championships or the first his-
toric appearance of the winged
Mini-Sprints of the Southeastern
Midget Association that brought
the capacity crowd out on a warm
summer evening is open to ques-
p Ution. The zippy little "mighty
mites" put on a "wing ding" of a
show touring the big 5/8 clay
oval in just under 24 seconds per
lap, which brought their speed up
to nearly 110 mph in the straight-
ways. Jacksonville's Dale Nettles
took the feature from far back in
the, pack, battling second place
finisher Colt Sloan, with 'only
three laps to go. The popular cars
are being scheduled for a return
at a later date.
In addition to the Bombers
and the Mini-Sprints, the pit area
was filled to' double-parked ca-
pacity with race cars in the
Street, Super Street, and Sports-
man Divisions, many of the cars
seeing action either for the first
time or after a long lay-off. Among
the notables were three cars in
the Sportsman class: Ben Buzbee
of Waukeenah, coming out of re-
tirement; Dale Coker, in a beauti-
fully prepared Thunderbird; and'
James Cutchins, after a long
search for funding for new "pow-
er-plant" in his #13 "Screamin'
In the Super Street Class was
a meticulously blue-print built,
shiny-new IROC Camaro for
"Flyin', Bryan" Brogdorn of Wewa
and the return of "Robo" Hutchin-
son in the John Henry Waters car
out of Port St. Joe.
However, it was Harold Cut-
chins in the TEX-COTE #13 that
stole the show in Super Street.

The big toe is the site of
one of the more common frac-
tures that are treated by the
podiatrist, caused when a
heavy object falls on the toe.
The big toe is vulnerable to
fractures in such cases be-
cause there is a lack of pro-
teetive tissue. The bone sec-
tion that extends to the front
of the toe is covered only by a
thin layer of skin at the bot-
tom edge of the toenail.
Someone whose job or pro-
jects at home pose. risks that
heavy :objects might fall on
the feet obviously should
wear protective shoes. Yet,
only one in four people who
have, suffered job-related
foot injuries wear safety
shoes, according to the Na-
tional Safety Council. If a fall-
ing object injures one or more
toes, see the podiatrist with-
out delay. Prompt examina-
tion .and treatment can
make a big difference in

Soine :seeds never have a
chance. Such were the ones that
fell on the path. People are often
like paths. All our going takes its
toll on the soul. Rushing is one
thing you can't do when you gar-

times we do rush. We plant too
early. Or the preparation is in-
complete-we don't till properly.

plant." The birds cannot get' the
seed if it is in the sack, But seed
in the sack will not grow. Some of
us sometimes live like this. We
look at the evil in the world and
refuse to sow. because 'we are
afraid we might lose some seed.
Losses and crosses are Inevitable
in life. It comes down to: are,you
willing to risk the losses and bear
the crosses as you trust the Lord
of the 'harvest? Farming takes
faith. This is why farmers drive so
Slowly. After they have planted
and until the .harvest they know
all they can do, is hope, watch,
arid pray. There is no need to
rush when all you can do is that.
They also know that no amount
of worry or hurry is going to make
it grow any faster. Life in the
Kingdom of God is like this.'
Don't worry about die birds.
Sow your seeds. Watch them
grow. And slow your truck down.

Air Band to Perform Here:
The 530th Air Force Band
will be presented by the Senior
Citizen's Association on July 7 at
First Union Bank Park. The Sen-
iors will be selling submarine
sandwiches, hot dogs, drinks,
and snacks for a picnic at the.
Concert. Showtime is at 5:30
p.m. All proceeds go to building
the new Senior Citizen's Center.
The sounds of the 530th have
been heard throughout Georgia
for both military and civilian"
functions. Through the years,
their talents have led to many re-
quested performances in Florida,
Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana,
South Carolina, Wyoming, Monta-
na, Michigan, Delaware, Tennes-
see, Washington, D. C., the
Azores, and Norway.
The versatility of the band,
goes far beyond the traditional
pomp and circumstance of mill-'
tary ceremonies. Within the band
are such groups as an eighteen
piece Glen Miller style dance
band, a jazz octet, protocol com-
bo, a dixieland ensemble, and
various brass and woodwind en-
The 530th Band continues to
maintain an average of 50 to 60
performances annually, perform- :
ing in their mission as "Goodwill
Ambassadors" for the Georgia Air
National Guard and, the United
States, Air Force before tens of
thousands of people.
The Senior Citizen's Associa-
ton will be selling chicken salad.
submarine sandwiches for lunch
on Wednesday, July 7. It will in-
clude iced tea, a brownie, and let-
tuce and tomato, all for only $3.
Call-in orders will be accepted,
and delivery to local businesses is
available. Call 229-8466 to order.
