Road Program Is
In Waiting Stage
The City of Port St. Joe and the
County Board of Commissioners
have now assumed the "wait and
see" position after a trip to Talla-
hassee with the road plan publi-
cized in The Star two weeks ago.
Mayor J. L. Sharit and Attorney
Cecil G. Costin met with part of
the SRD last Friday to discuss the
matter and get their stamp of ap-
proval on the plan. The Gulf County
group didn't exactly get the run
around, ibut they didn't get a big
stamp of approval either.
After the local group had made
their proposal of what they desir-
ed to do with secondary road funds
in Gulf County the Road Board
people told the local group that
new laws had been passed in the
recent session of the legislature to
restrict the use of secondary road
funds. Among these restrictions,
they thought, was the clause for-
bidding building other than farm to
market roads or connecting roads
(roads -that connect one highway
to another) with secondary road
J. L. Sharit. acting as spokesman
for the group, explained the unique
situation of Gulf County to the
Board. He explained that there was
very little agriculture activity in
Gulf County, thus eliminating the
need for a host of farm to market
roads. He pointed out -to the board
that the secondary road funds com-

Missile Control Station
Set for Cape San Bias
It was announced early yester-
day morning that Cape San Bias
near Port St. Joe and Tarpon
Springs had been designated for
missile control stations and a con-
trol station would be construct-
ed in both localities.
A spokesman said the stations
will be part of a missile testing
range in the Gulf of Mexico. The
Air Force had announced pre-
viously that a multimillion dollar
launching center is under con-
struction on Santa Rosa Island
near Eglin Air Force Base.
A further release said the Tar-
pon Springs base would have ap-
proximately 150 technicians on
duty. No mention was made of the
size of the local base.
This is all that is known of this
matter at press time, but more
details should be available by

Prior to their regular meetsag on
Tuesday night, the City Commis-
sion held a hearing on proposed
sewer construction in the colored
section of town.
Approximately 30 residents and
property owners in the area to be
developed attended the meeting to
hear the Commission's plan for con-
struct'ng sewer facilities in the
quarters and what the approximate
cost would be.
Ma3or J. L. Sharit reported to
:ne assembly that the sewer put
in by t] e city on Garrison Avenue
had t, s' the property owner* $3.00
per lneal foot. He also pointed out
that much of this work was done
under adverse conditions.
Mayor Sharit estimated to those
present that sewer in the area to
be served probably would not cost
over $4.00 per lineal foot and a good
possibility was that it would not
cost this much. He pointed out that
a single line would be run down
one side of the street with laterals
run to the homes. As an example,
he used the fact that most of the
lots in the section to be served are
50 feet wide. This would make the
sewer cost $200.00 for each 50 foot
space. The cost would be divided
between the lot on each side of
the street, thus making the cost
$100.00 per lot (with a .0 foot
frontage). Tfihee figures were giv -ou
on the basis of $4.00 per lineal toot.
The money will be payable to the
city over a 10 year period by the
'Residents and property owners
agreed to the price and work will
start In approximately two weeks.

ter, the Shark slick quarterback

were off to an early 7-0 lead. The

hands on the ball, halfback Frank

the Sharks led 14-0 at the end of
the first quarter.
The Sharks scored again in the
second quarter as fullback Wayne
Taylor plugged it up the middle for
a 35 yard TD and made it 21-0 by
booting the extra point.
'Blountstown found the range in
the third quarter and scored on an
eleven yard pass play. The extra
point attempt failed. The Tigers

last tally in the fourth quarter that

ball to the Tiger six where Frank

A Good Deal Lucille!
Nothing short of a paid up mortgage could have pleased
us more than the announcement last Wednesday afternoon of
talks by our City and County Commissioners on the subject of
doing something constructive about the deplorable condition of
our city streets, as well as the streets in other parts of the county.
It is well that the entire county will receive road benefits
from their plan, but we are primarily interested in Port St. Joe
and just what the plan of floating a road bond issue would mean
to the city.
At the present time Port St. Joe is receiving driblets of
the County's allotted share of the secondary road fund money
handed out by the State of Florida for a farm to market road
program. At the rate Port St. Joe is having her streets construct-
ed and resurfaced, it will be over 10 years before the city will
have all its streets surfaced and opened up as they should be.
In the meantime, city tax payers are paying around $30,-
000 annually into a street construction and maintenance fund.
Not all of this fund goes to street maintenance, but with the pres-
ent condition of the city streets, most of it is. One can drive
about the city most any day and see two or three men busy patch-
ing roads. And still, you don't have a good road to ride on -- it
just removes the holes. With the advent of paving throughout
the city, this expense of patching would be cut down to a mere
trickle, making a savings for the taxpayer. -
And there is no doubt at all in my mind but what new
roads would also mean fewer auto repair bills and a prolonged
life out of today's expensive tires.
County-wide, the taxpayer will probably save a goodly
sum in the County road and bridge fund which is now being ex-
pended for maintenance of roads in populated areas, where there
is no city to maintain roads. A drop in the road and bridge fund
would mean a drop in taxes (this fund tops $100,000.00 this year).
In the matter of construction of the Dead Lakes Dam, the
taxpayer will save one mill off his tax bill. There is now one
mill assessed on the tax bill to provide "local effort" matching
funds for the construction of the dam. This "local effort" will go
on for 10 years and has a possibility of being raised above the
one mill. With the bond issue to take care of this expenditure,
the assessment would be dropped.
Now, we have said this won't cost the tax payer any more
money than he is now paying. We all know we don't get a thing
without paying for it, so just where does this mysterious "Santa
Claus" of a secondary road fund come from.
'It comes from the seventh and eighth cent gas tax. Each
cent of the 11c gasoline tax is designated for something. These
two cents are designated for use by the counties to construct secon-
dary roads. 80 per cent of the funds received by the county
are for construction recommended by the county and carried
out by the state the remaining 20 per cent is for maintenance
of these roads. Gulf County receives approximately $225,000.00
annually in these and a few Federal Government dollars.
This is where the money will go, and this is where it will
come from and the savings will amount to a considerable sum
over the years. Only about a third of our secondary road fund
will be used to; pay back the bonds so the county will not be
devoid of secondary road funds for any road that might come
up in the future, If you are interested in this plan, it may
do a world of good to express yourself to your county commission-
er along these lines.
