Can you imagine it raining in
Port St. Joe after so long a time?
We had a paper salesman call
yesterday who said that up in
North Florida and South Geor-
gia, people are out walking in
the rain grinning like monkeys.
We're not a farmer, but we
were right glad to see it.
Our friend, Jiggs Zingarelli in
Apalachicola has quit. He has
ceased publication of the Frank-
lin Press. When he started the
paper, anyone could plainly see
he was an extraordinary news-
paperman. Even unorthodox. He
proved it by quitting without a
bankrupt sale forcing him to.
Jiggs' paper was well read and
we hate to see him go. We do
envy him the free loafing time
he will have now.
We have a little piece here
by Wallace Findlay up in the
city of Blountstown plucked out
of his column, "Musings", and
"Money is generally fascinat-
ing, but if I wanted to talk about
it, I would have to bring in some
of my friends who have it, and
they might resent it.
"You know how it is with mon-
ey. No one wants to admit hav-
ing any, even if he lives in a
twenty thousand dollar home,
has a new car, and takes two
weeks off each year. It's a strange
thing. I'll bet I would be differ-
ent, if I could just qualify."

Costin Lists The
County Representative, Cecil G.
Costin, Jr., reports that the House
passed a bill Tuesday setting up a
3-day non-resident fishing license
for the State of Florida at the cost
ci $1.00. Previously out-of-state
persons must pay $3.00 for a license
that was good for one to 14 days.
Costin also reported that the
House has passed the Lieutenant
Governor Bill. Costin said that he
predicted that the bill would have
a hard fight to get through the
Senate. "The reason for this", says
Costin is that the President of the
Senate is now delegated to sit in
the Governor's seat should the Gov-
ernor die in office". The proposed
Lt.-Governor bill would require
that, a candidate for Lt.-Governor
have his name linked with that of
the Gubernatorial candidate that he
wished to serve with, printed on the
ballot. The Lt.-Governor would also
be delegated some of the responsi-
bilities of the Governor at the des-
cretion of the Governor. "Governor

-.. e City Will Take Up Extra
Construction Fund Bonds
-., The City is publishing notice this
week that they intend to take up
the last five bonds in the bond is-
AX sue that was used to construct the
City Hall. Last year the city called
in the last seven bonds on the is-

These bonds taken up are in addi-

come due at this time.
n The City is able to take up the
i extra bonds, thereby saving inter-
tcst since the Utmilities Tax has been
pledged to this fund and can be
spent for nothing else. Therefore
the Commission thought it wise to

sponsor the clubs and give the city
a sufficient amount of teams to re-
ceive a Little League franchise.
The local league will consist of
teams sponsored by the St. Jde
Paper Company, The Kiwanis Club,
St. Joe Motor Company and the
Rotary Club. Each sponsor had to
put up $200.00 to enter the Little
League set-up, purchase uniforms
and equip the team. The sponsors
will also carry insurance on each
of the boys on all the teams.
According to Little League rules,
each team will be composed of 15
players and all players must be be-
tween the ages of eight and 12 in-
clusive. Any local boy of these ages
is eligible to play.
Williams states that he expects
to have more than the needed 60
boys tuin out for the teams. He
regrets that the set-up can handle
only one league, which is compris-
ed of four teams in this, the leagues'
first year of operation, but he states
that plans are already going ahead
to form another four-team league
next year. "In fact," says Williams,
"We already have several sponsors
to finance these teams next year".
Little League officials are now
hunting a field to play on. Accord-
ing to Little League regulations
they must have their own field. The
Little League field is just slightly
smaller than a softball diamond
and must have a fence so that the
little fellows can knock honle-runs.
The Little Leaguers approached the
City Commission in this matter and
found that the City would go along
with them for obtaining and con-
structing a diamond.
The first practice session of the
Little League teams has been set
for tomorrow afternoon at 5:00
p.m. The boys will meet at the ball
park and go to the Higlh School
playground for their practice ses-
sion. The first Little League game
