Yes,'we mean you, Mister County Commission-
er who voted in favor of passing the resolution
last week to. legalize the sale of intoxicating bev-
erages on Sunday in Gulf County. And you
lave only been office two weeks now. Heaven
'help the future of the county if your legislative
acts to come are to be like the one just passed.
We are not alone in these sentiments, by a
long shot. In fact, we have yet failed to talk to
anyone who IS in favor of such a move. Isn't
it customary to seek out the will of the people
you represent before passing such resolutions?
If you think not, we think it advisable that you
here and now resign from your office.
We did read in the minutes of the County
Commissioners that the resolution was requested
by a county resident, but we were under the
impression that the majority of the citizens had
the voice of power in such decisions, not just
one or two persons.

like to report here and now that
they are bending over backwards

We made our semi-weekly trip
to White 'City Tuesday evening
to pick up the "White City News"
(our other trip is Thursday eve-
aing to deliver some papers to the
same community) and we picked
anp an extra column from the mind
of Geogre Harper and the pen of
Mrs. Harper concerning the fish-
ing and hunting in that area. Dur-
ing the course of conversation the
point was brought out that the
bobcats and raccoons are catching
and eating the young turkeys and
shortening the supply of same.
We, having just recently come
from Georgia, made the remark
that they ought to kill the 'coons
and eat them then. Mrs. Harper
gave an incredulous look and re-
pled, "Eat the 'coons! I. should
say not". We then proceeded to
enlighten her on the delicacy bf

Starting at White 'Springs and
the Stephen Foster Memorial, the
author takes his readers on a wind--
ing tour that includes just about'
every town and community in the
area. While he deals with such at-
tractions as Silver 'Springs, Cypress
Gardens, Bok Tower, the Great
Masterpiece and Tom Gaskin's
Cypress iMuseum, he has not per-
mitted their description to domi-
nate his story and the reader
meets many interesting personali-
ties who are a part of Florida's
Heart and have had much to do
with itsf development.
He tells of the countless motels
and trailer parks, pictures young

attend life in central Florida for
both native and visitor; swimming,
boating, fishing, shuffleboard, mo-
toring over rolling highways with
wide vistas of sparkling fresh wa-

the extensive cattle ranches where
herds of choice cattle may be seen
grazing on luch grasses. Tells of
the introduction of the Brahman
cattle and crossing with native
stock that revolutionized the in-
dustry and put Florida on 'the map
as a cattle state.
