Postmaster 'Chauncey Costin this
week announced that the Post Of-
fice department will establish a
'Star Route between Port St. Joe
and Wewahitchka, 'beginning April
The Route will leave Wewahitch-
ka immediately after arrival in We-
wahitchka of Star Route from Mar-
ianna and will arrive in Port St.
Joe around 2:45 p.m. It will leave
Port St. Joe at 3:00 p.m. for the
return trip to Wewahitchka.

get a change in the Star Route
schedule from Quincy to Port St.
Joe which enabled the mail to ar-
rive one hour earlier in the morn-
ing and has 'been considerably ad-
vantageous to 'both the local post
office and patrons.

tration from 1949 through 1953.
He emphasized that during this
period Gulf county received more
roads and bridges "before or since"
any other administration. In Gulf
county, he said, more than $1,619,--
000 was spent on road and bridge'
building. Much of this money, he.
said, was primary road funds.
In addition, he said, it was dur-
ing the Warren administration that.
the State Legislature amended the
state statute which refunded to
counties the money it collected in
cigaret taxes. The candidate prais-.

such an increase in the exemption

"The public schools of Florida
have made their greatest progress
as a result of the policies and pro-

CONGRATULATIONS HI SCHOOL BAND
Those of you who heard the Eort St. Joe
High School band in concert last Friday will
agree with me that Port St. Joe has something
here to be proud of.
.We would like to publicly commend Her-
man Dean for the band he has turned out in
the two short years be has been here. Cer-
ta,,rly it is the best band we have had here in
Port St. Joe in a number of years.
With the band's rendition of their festival
numbers, we feel that the band will come home
with some of the ribbons even though they have
not participated in the last few years.
We know the band members will enjoy
their trip to the festival. We remember our
/ one and only trip to one when we played in the
High School band. There is nothing like it to
cap off the years of training to blow that horn.
We think that the band will receive much
the same thrill that they received in Apalachi-"
cola the night of the football game there when
the band came niarching on the field, and all
of Port St. Joe stood on their feet and raised the
roof with their cheer. They will get no cheer-
ing at the festival and if it is like it was back
in 1945, they 'won't have much of an audience
to play to, other than judges, but believe me it
is a thrill.
Of course, the festival is what all the work
S.and money spent during the last two years has
lead up to. We feel that they will hold their
own, and that the name of the Port St. Joe
High School band will certainly receive some
mention of merit after their performance Friday
IT NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT
.,While we have let this subject lapse for
a while, we must now put in a plug. for the
water and sewer tax program to be voted upon'
the 27th of this month. That isn't far off.
We would like to report that the hospital
is now out of the red and shows promise of
staying out for while at least. It is being effi-
ciently operated and as long as we can give
Mrs. Thomas the co-operation she needs from
the whole community that it will continue to
pay its own way. Since she has taken over as
manager of that institution three months ago,
all bills have been brought up to current and
a small-balance is in the bank. The new x-ray
machine that it was thought would have to be
paid for out of city funds, but the hospital
revenue is even making those payments now.
We feel that the dependence of the hos-
pital upon city funds for operation had held
some people ,back from making a favorable
opinion upon the tax.
While the hospital is now doing well fi-
nancially it is still grossly overcrowded. The
need for more rooms is critical now and what
with the coming of new industry and the talk
. of still larger industrial expansion in the near
future, the need for expansion becomes more
than imperative it becomes mandatory. We
cannot wait until the need gets greater before
The City Commission has 'investigated
every other means "of taxation to build this
addition and there just is none that the people
of Port St. Joe would not have to pay. The
only question is how do they wish to pay for
it. The water tax would- be just as easy as any
other that would be fair for everybody. There
can be no county-wide tax. No special legisla-
tion can be passed providing such a tax. The
people of Port St. Joe must do it, just as they
had to do when the hospital was built in the
first place. You can get nothing without pay-
ing for it. We had a letter from Bob Bringman,
a former resident of Port St. Joe, who said that
if the people of this community could see the
taxes he has to pay on his HOME in New York
they would be thankful that they had no more
taxes to pay than are now 'imposed. He says
he has to pay over $700 a year on his home.
All of ours are homestead exempt. Of course
Bob said they had, excellent services but they
paid for them. That is what we are going to
have to do here, and the quicker we realize it,
the quicker We get these many services we want.
To go- first class, you have to pay first class.
When approached by your candidates for
county commissioner, ask them if they would fa-,
vor a county grant to the local hospital to help
in -this expansion. Attempts will be made to
secure, federal funds to help with the bill of
We urge that you vote for the measure
when it comes up on March-27 and. do your
part to secure some county funds to help with
our program here.

ADOPTED by the Board of County Com-
Smissioners of Gulf County, Florida in spec-
ial session at Wewahitchka, Florida this 27th
day of February, 1956.
Senutor George G. Tapper offered a plan
to expedite the construction of a Dam
a ross the South end of the Dead Lakes and
requested the Board to take same under;
awvisement. The plan being: 1. To set
aside and ear-mark a certain amount of
secondary road money from each budget
for this purpose. 2. To require each person
to purchase a permit to fish in the Dead
Lares ,according to a special law passed
m the 19538 legislature, and that the fees
from' said permits be ear-marked for the
dam. 3. That the County request the Legis-
latmie to authorize the Game and Fresh
Water Fish Commission' to -assist in the
cost of the Dam, and 4. To request the
Congress of the U. S. to authorize the U. S.
Engineers to assist in the engineering of
tha project and that an appropifation b3
set up to assist in the cost of the o.< ct.
Mr. Tapper said that Gulf County must
first do something to show the Legislature
and the Congress that we want the Dam
constructed before we can expect any nelp
from them' and there is no better way to
show that we want the Dam, than to begin
setting money aside for the project. -The
Chairman thanked the Senator for his plan
and announced that Board will consider it
at an early edate.
