Serving Port St. Joe with the
news of Port St. Joe and
"Port St. Joe-The Outlet Port for the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee Valley"
'ORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA
THURSDAY, MARCH 20, 1958
- Health Center Formally Opened
by W-ESIEY R. RAMSEY '
Before we get into the serious
business of a column, we want to
do just a touch of bragging.
We caught the "old man" in 'he
backwater last Friday afternoon.
Yes sir, he was truly the grand-
daddy of all bass. Nine and a half
pounds worth of bass. (We spelled
out the figures to make it look just
that much bigger). We caught him
on a dalton special with just a
slight twitch of the wrist.
Today is our birthday. We are
now well past 30 having left that
mark behind. But since the mill is
cutting back to a 30 hour week,
you can be excused from buying
me a birthday present.
Now to the serious matter.
And that is the County Commis-
sion and this road business.
It looks as if Port St. Joe is des-
tined to get the run-around in this
matter if we don't band together
and make ourselves heard mightily.
We have been asking around and
so far as we can find out not one
area of the county with the excep-
tion of Port St. Joe and Jones
Homestead, has asked (formally)
for any part of a proposed million
dollar bond issue.
Why is this? Port St. Joe City
Commissioners thought up the idea
and presented it to the county out-
lining Port St. Joe's needs and
urged that some of the money be
applied to the Dead Lakes damn
construction. One road in Wewa-
hitelika is available for paving (all
the rest either being tied up by
right of way troubles or already
paved) and Port St. Joe asked that
It be included in the plan.
And yet, after looking into the
"how" of floating the bond issue
and offeri' thee -;,a, it has all but
been left out in the cold. After be-
ing. the only political subdivision in
the,county to formally ask for any
of the money.
We would like to know.
We are still a part of Gulf Coun-
ty (I think) and are entitled to
at least a fair shake. But, brother
all we are getting is a faith losing
We would be the last to threaten
but we would suggest that the
Commission take a close look at
Secondary Road Fund spending for
the past six years and see just
what Port St. Joe has received out
of approximately $250,000 each year
for these six. Very little, I can tell
you. We would also ask the com-
missioners count the votes in Port
St. Joe and vicinity and also take
into their consideration that there
is a tax payer or. two down here.
We will tell them right now, that
their every move in so far as we
will be allowed to find out in this
matter will be reported right in
these columns and the people of
'Port St. Joe will be kept abreast
of just how they stand in the eyes
of their "representatives".

District Band Festival Will Be An
Event or Next Week End In Port St. Joe
A week from tomorrow, the Sixth
'District Band Festival will be in
Port St. Joe. Demand for housing
still exceeds 'the supply. Since last
week's Star went to press an addi-
tional 130 requests for housing
have been made.
The generous cooperation of the
citizens of Port St. Joe and vicin-
ity has already made room for
about 400 band members in homes.
Working on the theory that "there
is always room for one more", the
remainder can be housed.
Anyone who has not already vol-
unteered and can house any of the
boys and girls coming to the festi-
val, please call Mrs. Paul Fensom,
housing chairman at BAll 7-5661.
Since last week the following

The City Commission took up
two small but vitally important
pieces of business at their regular

Another piece of business was
that the City decided to purchase
a pumping apparatus for drying
out a ditch that m'ught need to be
dug. The piece of equipment is
especially needed in the city's cur-
rent program of providing sewer
and water facilities where they are
not now in use.

a humorous way the dangerous of

dangers on the floor and on- the

Winters gave a short talk on
some of the things that could be
done to combat home accidents and
passed out pamphlets of "do's" and

Guests of the club were Gene

items that you no longer use but
which are still in good repair. By

those who are in need and you will
be contributing to the 'greater ef-

is pick up your phone and contact

Roads For Kiwanis
City Attorney Cecil G. Costin,
Jr.. gave an address to the Kiwan-
is Club Tuesday explaining Port
St. Joe's present position in so far
as the County's proposed road bond
issue is concerned.
Cosin reviewed some of the
past history of the plan, whereby
Port St. Joe hopes to get all of its
city streets paved.
Costin said that the latest pro-
posal by the County Board was
that they float two issues, ne
from the 80% road money for ap-
proximately $750,000 and one from
the 20% road money (all included
in the Secondary Road Fund) for
$250,000. In this plan the city would
receive $150,000 in. paving from the
large amount and all of the lesser
amount for city paving. The rea-
son for the plan, according to Cos-
tin, was that the 80% money has
restrictions on its use and the 20%
money is more liberal in its appli-
Guests of the club Tuesday were
Bob Smith, David Bayer both of
Emory Univ., Jackie Mitchell, Ter-
ry Porter, of the St. Joe High
School and Jack Madison of St.
Petersburg and Claryce Whaley of

Confusion In Offering Resolutions
To SRD Muddies Water Once More
Again Port St. Joe hits a snag in their plans to have the
streets of Port St. Joe included in a county-wide bond issue for
repaving. The latest snag was announced to the City Commis-
sion at a meeting with the County Commission and the Dead
Lakes Commission Monday night. Again the. City is being asked
to take a watered-down version of their plans for having all the
streets in Port St. Joe paved at one time under the proposed

The Bay City road had been start-
ed with Federal funds which were
limited in use and is not yet com-
pleted. Before the question of the
bond issue came up", the road was
to be finished with the federal
funds as they became available.
The new proposal, submitted
some three weeks ago by the
County Attorney, David Carl Gas-
kin contained another three-quar-
ters of a million dollars of road
work to come under the bond issue.
In view of both proposals still being
in the Road Board's possession for
inclusion in the Bond Issue, they,
naturally, turned thumbs down.
The meeting Monday was called
to try and get the City Commission
to compromise their demands.
The County proposed to float an
issue for $750,000 on the 80% funds
of the Secondary Road funds. Of
this money they would spend $150,-

work was rapidly pushed. In May,
1835, parties were dispatched to
Suggest Founding of Town
The bustling, thriving and opti-
mistic Apalachicolians were not in
lined to pay tribute to the people
to whom the United States Su
preme Court had allotted the land.
They looked about for a way to
escape supporting the Apalachicola
Land company, an organization
started by the successors of Pan-
ton, Leslie & Co., and yet not lose
the profitable trade of the region.
Somebody suggested the found-
ing of a rival town on St. Joseph's
Bay, .some 28 miles to the north-
west. Since Apalachicola was a/
the extreme western limit of the
Forbes Purchase, the new settle-
ment would not be within the jur,
isdiction of the hated company. It
was, however, located in such close
proximity to the river that the en-
thusiastic' malcontents believed
they could divert the stream's com-
merce and thus ruin the old town.
The project was one that might
have made reasonable men in more
normal times hesitate. It was not
only a question of erecting a new
town, with wharves and other trad-
ing facilities, but means of easy
and cheap transportation had to
be devised between the river and
A bayou, called Lake Wimico,
extended from the river to within
a distance of eight miles from the
proposed city. This lake, it was be-
lieved, would furnish an easy pass-
age fo rsteamers, after some
dredging had been done. The in-
tervening land could be crossed
either by canal or by railroad. In
addition to these obstacles there
also seemed some doubt whether
the bay was deep enough for ocean
steamers. However, the promoters
were undaunted, and began the
most remarkable undertaking that
Florida had seen up to that time,
or was destined to see for many
years to come.
Canal Company Formed
Even before the decision of the
supreme court was given, the Lake
Wimico and St. Joseph Canal Co.
had been incorporated by the legis-
lative council of Florida to connect
the lake with the bay. Now the

bought by Tallahasseeans. This -
shows clearly the chief interests
backing the project. In addition to
the discontented residents of the
old town the support of the com-
mercial powers of western Georgia
was a potent factor in the develop-
mnent of St. Jospeh. We can
readily imagine why they were in-
terested. Their investments in
