Playing With Our Children's Future
Well-founded rumors about the town and county have
it that we are gambling with our children's future.
We hesitate to believe that even a professional gambler
would gamble with so high stakes.
This rumor (well founded) would have it that the c
schools of Port St. Joe and Gulf County are in dire straights.
The teacher situation is getting to the serious stage. Of course,
the local schools are accustomed to being short a teacher or two
at the beginning of school. But the situation this year is even
worse. The teacher shortage has reached alarming proportions.
The reasons for the shortage is that green root of all
evil, money. It seems that all the states that the State of Florida
has been robbing teachers from have awakened to the fact that
they are losing teachers for the same reason that we cannot now
get teachers --not enough pay.
t And of course, we can understand that Florida is a fast
growing state and that the needs for tax-supported services is
growing rapidly than the tax rolls. But, in a state that is boom-
ing such as this one and a county that is booming as much as
Gulf County is enough money surely could be provided to
guarantee an adequate education to our youngsters.
We have heard two sides to this story. You can usually
hear two sides. One is that the county has the money to pay the
teachers more and won't, do it. Nobody knows definitely how
much money has and where it is going, but the School Board.
And even if we knew in dollars and cents just what the budget
was, we probably couldn't reconcile all the expenditures and fail
to see whether or not the Board could afford a raise. The same
situation came up before with the football lights. The School
Board said they didn't have the money and a group of citizens
said they had it. Who was right?
If the money is available, the School Board should go,
posthaste to their meeting place and provide the necessary funds
or whatever it takes to get good qualified teachers to serve in
our public schools. This is more important to our children than
the biggest gymnasium, the best buildings, the largest and most
luxurious football field that could ever be built. Not to take any
credit from these facilities as builders of character needed by all
children, we hold that the primary purpose of the schools is to
provide the means of learning to children.
You're looking at the performance buy
of the year! Quite a statement? Sure,
but then this is quite a car.

modestly priced of all the sassy new

As with any big clearance sale, such as we
have just had, we will invariably wind up with
a large stock of used furniture. Some of this
furniture has had pretty rugged treatment,
some of it has been well cared for, some of it
is only slightly used. You should see some of
these terrific bargains before forming an opin-
ion, for every piece is well worth -much more
than the selling price.
