SOMETHING IS BEING DONE!
Three weeks ago, The Star carried an edi-
torial on the plight of the St.,.. Joe Fire Control
District and how it was bleeding the city of
Port St. Joe to maintain this fire protection to
this section of the county other than the city
itself. The editorial explained how each proper-
ty holder was supposed to be' taxed one-half mill
on the dollar to support and maintain equip-
ment enough to serve the St. Joe Fire Control
District. The money was turned over to the
City of Port St. Joe to use on fire fighting equip-
ment and as a consequence, the responsibility
of furnishing fire protection to this district fell
on the City of Port St. Joe.
As a result of collections made by property
owners in the district (othey than those with
homestead exemptions) the total came to about
$300 per year donated to the City of Port St.
Joe to maintain such protection. As it has been
in the past, over half of the action by the city
fire department has taken place in this district.
Tuesday night the fire commissioners of
this district were called to meet with the city
copmissibners and try to iron out this difficulty.
W4ile the commissioners were in attendance at
the cify meeting, a bid was read whereby the
city was purchasing .250 feet':pf 2 1-2 inch hose
and 250 feet of 1 1-2 inch hose for the fire de-
partment. The total bill came to a little over

$700. This is just for enough of the larger size
hose to supply one-fourth of the minimum foot-
age of hose carried on one truck and about
ler size hose for one truck. This hose if cared
two-thirds of the minimum amount of the smal-
for and if by luck the department can keep
careless persons from running over it at a fire,
the hose will last approximately two years with
normal use. This is just a sample of the ex-
pense of maintaining the department.
To get back to the story. The fire commis-
sioners from the St. Joe district met with the
city commissioners with a recommendation for
obtaining more funds from the residents of
their district. It was found, by the commis,
sioners attorney, Silas R. Stone that home own-
ers could be taxed for this purpose even with
homestead exemptions in the same manner that
city homeowners are taxed a street tax. The
editor of The Star brought up this method of
taxation for home owners of the district during
a meeting held by the fire department, city
commissioners and fire commissioners at a re-
cent meeting held also for this purpose. The
fire commissioners, composed of county com-
missioners, Parker G. Hart, George Cooper and
B. E. Kenney went to work, along with their at-
torney, Silas R. Stone immediately following the
first meeting and met again with the city com-
mission Tuesday night to report that they had
found that the home owners could be'taxed by
strength of their being in the district, and for
the support of the district, like we stated be-
fore, in the manner by which city residents are
taxed a street tax.
The commission told the city commission
that they would ascertain the total property value
in the district in question and ask the county
commission' to levy this tax which is expected
to bring in as high as $2500.00 per year.
The city commisison unofficially stated that
they could then purchase another truck es-
pecially equipped to cope with fires in. the out-
lying districts where water is practically unob-
tainable. It was also pointed out that the truck
would also be available for use by the: City in
their own needs also.
So it looks like something is being 'done
about a dangerous situation which has existed
for some time. Both the City of Port St. Joe
*and outlyiipg districts are lucky
that there has been.no serious out-
bursts of fire during this time..'
le Our hearty congratulations to
tlese commissioners Kenney, Hart and
Copoer, Attorney Stone and Ma-
yor Belin for their prompt, and
fruitful atcion on this vital ques-
ra s tion. You were on the ball!

by WESLEY R. RAMSEY
Oh it was a grand baseball game
day Sunday. Just the right amount
of cooling atmosphere and a feel-
ing of vim and vigor in the air.
We were on the Rotary Club part
in the ticket sales department, be-
ing elected by a committee com-
posed of Jimmy Greer to snatch
tickets. A very interesting exper-
ience. We had three children walk
up to us in a group and say "Our
daddy is bringing our tickets". We
haven't, seen their daddy yet. We
saw' the same kids walking around
later on in the game eating pea-
nuts and drinking soda pop. Guess
they figured their money was spent
better that way.
We went to the "snack bar' .o
get Jimmy Greer (head' ticket sel-
ler) and ourself a bag of peanuts
and a bottle of "belly-wash". Ro
tarian Kenneth Creech was run-
ning" the peanut machine. He was
standing there eating peanuts like
sixty. We asked him for two bags
and were informed between pea-
nuts that they weren't ready yet:
It seems like everytime a batch of.
peanuts would get, done there.
would be about a half 'dozen bags
of peanutst'eft in the machine. Of
course.~-,Kineth had to taste them
because he"couldn't sell raw pea-

Florida Sunshine Proves
To Be Asset To State
Florida sunshine brought $2,060,-
000,000 to the: pockets and cash
registers of Floridians last'year.
This. "sun income", a phrase
coined by the Florida State: Cham-
ber of Commerce, accounted for
about-75 per cent of the total earn-
ings of the people of. the, State
from private sources in 1952.
.. Obviously, tourism accounted for
the largest portion of the State's
"sun income" and is reported in
this week's business review of the
State Chamber's 'research and in-
dustrial division as $900,000,000
during last year.
The agricultural crops and live-
stock made possible, either through
market-timing, or by type, by Flor-
ida's climate contributed an esti-
mated $360,000,000 of the 1952 to-
tal and. was slightly below 1951.
Processing. and manufacturing of
specialized Florida crops,-increase
efficiency from a low rate of work-
er absenteeism; and all services
resulting from typical Florida cli-
matic conditions made up the bal-
ance, $800,000,000, of Florida's
"sun income" last year.

CROS COUNTRY W HATER
During our long training pe-
riod, the words "safe driving"
are drilled into us truck driv-

of our .conscious, our subcon-
scious and our very souls. We
Florida truck drivers are hum-
bly proud of our safety record
-and our bosses are, too. And
they show their appreciation
in many ways.
For example, the Florida
trucking firm I work for
bought some acreage along a
beautiful river near Florida's
west coast and built a lodge.
'We drivers who have perfect
safety records, together with
qur families, get a week's va-
cation at the lodge, free of
charge. As a matter of fact,
we get two weeks' vacation
with pay and one full week
in one of the comfortable
cottages.' The company pays
all our travel expenses to and
from the lodge and provides
us with incidentals, such as
In my firm, between 98 and
100 truck drivers, their wives
and children get this wonder-
ful vacation every year as a
reward for safedriving. I
think it's pretty swell. Since
this vacation plan was started
two years ago,,.my company
has not had a single-prevent-
Then, of course, every year,
various trophies and awards
for safe driving are presented
by the Florida Trucking As-
sociation and by the American
Trucking Associatibns, Inc.
You have probably read about
these awards in your local
newspaper. Some outstanding
truck drivers have "won" $12,-
000, furnished homes.
But there's another side to
this story... In my company
one preventable accident
means a week's layoff without
pay; two preventable -acci-
dents, two weeks layoff with-
out pay and three .
well, that's like the third

It all adds up to safe driv-

fhe. first of the game the machine'
was out of whack, but Mark Tom-
fSason (peanut machine fixer ex-
fraordinary) fixed that up alright
glfter about an hour and two doz-
en trips after tools. After the job
was over he had to make another
dozen trips to carry off the tools
lie had used. But, nevertheless, the
peanut machine did, work!
.Haseball is our favorite sport
and we were considerably let
down when our hero, Leonard Be-
ll didn't put that extra pound of
hirnst on that long ball he hit in-
fo center field to carry it on over
the wall. Maybe he'll get the range
by the next game. Leonard looks
like the kind of a guy who isn't
going ito expend any more energy
than necessary to get that apple
over the wall. But when he finds
just the right wallop needed, he
lses that exact amount quite fre-
dluently, much to the despair of
the pitchers throughout the league.
We jumped up and down and
ven applauded for one of the
species known as "a REPUBLICAN

senhower made his speech. Now

We wonder just how many of
those Amderican guards yielded to
the temptation to kick those Com-
Mnunist prisoners in the seat of
the pants who were showing their
behindss in that prisoner exchange
deal? Can't blame them if all of
them did. If they didn't what's the
jnatter with them?
What is the world coming to?
One looks at the papers and reads
of the complexity of different poli-
cies and actions taking place all
over the world. A country calls
for peace and one can't help but
Bsmell the skunk in the woodpile.
One looks at all these matters and
actions and weighs them one
against the other and looks at the
pros and cons of each issue and
wonders if there will ever be any
peace in the world again. It's
worse than being on a merry-go-
round and going around and
around trying to find an end 'and
faintly knowing there is no end.
