Ask For Spending of Secondary Funds
County Asks SRD To Pave
Five Streets In Port St. Joe
Put Bond 'Issue
Plans On Shelf
The County Commission appear-
ed Tuesday before the State Road
Department at their annual budget
meeting to request both secondary
and primary road building for Gulf
The Commissioners also told the
SRD that they were abandoning,
for the present time, the idea of
floating a bond issue, to construct
streets and roads and other pro-
jects in Gulf County.
The Commissioners told The Star
that their reasons for abandoning
the bond issue project for the pre-
sent was to try and get a law chan-
ged in the April session of the leg-
islature. The County has been re-
luctant to include municipal streets
in a bond issue because of a law
that apparently prohibits using of
secondary road funds inside a mu-
nicipality except for streets meet-
ing certain specifications. The Com-
mission hopes to persuade the Gulf
County Representative, Cecil G.
Costin, to introduce a bill to kill
The Commissioners requested the
following roads be constructed by
1. Construction of a road and
bridge extending from S-22 Easter-
ly across the Dead Lakes, and sur-
veying right of way from the East
side of Dead Lakes to the Apala-
chicola River, approximately one
mile South of Kentucky Landing.
2. Long Avenue. 1st Street to 5th
Street, resurface with asphalt hot
3. 16th Street. U. S. 98 to Garri-
son Avenue, resurface with asphalt
hot plant mix and one double 8x10
4. Garrison Avenue from State
Road 71 to 16th Street, resurface
with asphalt hot plant mix.
5. 5th Street extend SRD 71 from
its intersection with U. S. 98 to
Bay, 40 foot pavement with curb
6. 1st Street from Oil Terminal
to Garrison and along Garrison to
7. Jones Homestead from U. S.
93 approximately one mile to Jones
,The County Commissioners also
requested the State Road Depart-
ment to leave the approaches or
the West Arm Bridge north of We-
wahitchka to be used as a public
boat landing and requested the
State Road Department to resur-
face Highway 71 from Wewahitch-
ka to Cypress Creek, resurface old
U. S. 98 south of Port St. Joe and
further requested the Road De-
partment to construct, out of pri-
mary funds, a Wayside Park on U.
S. 98 on or near Depot Creek and
rework the public boat landing at
White City bridge.
According to the Commissioners
the Road Department indicated
their desire to construct all the
projects requested and stated that
the Secondary streets would be in-
cluded in the new budget of the
Road Department and as much of
the primary work would be includ-
ed as funds would permit. The De-
partment assured the county Com-
missioners that streets in the coun-
ty would be let for bidding in Ap-
ril in the approximate sum of $80,-
000.00 in addition to the streets
listed above. These streets were ori-
ginally requested in 1956.

Recently there has been much' hullabaloo about the ap-
plication of the Secondary Road funds to construct all of the
streets in Port St. Joe. In attempting to keep the people cogni-
zant of the needs of the City and of the progress of the program
The Star took the liberty of interviewing a majority of the County
Commissioners since last week's issue. At the time of the inter-
view we found the Commissioners (Commissioners Croxton,
Cooper and Price) most agreeable to the needs of Port St. Joe
and was given their wholehearted cooperation in seeing that
Port St. Joe should get every needed street that it could. (It may
be pointed out that neither Commissioners Harden or Strickland
were against the plan -- we just didn't contact them. According
to the three Commissioners contacted, the board is agreed in its
feeling of road relief for Port St. Joe). It appears that the Com-
missioners have presented resolutions to the Road Department
representative for this district and that the representative has
notified them of their intention to formally reject the resolutions
because most of the streets in Port St. Joe which were submitted
in the recent resolution will not meet the legal requirements of
a law which was passed in the last session of the Legislature.
(The law in question provides that secondary road funds will be
spent on farm to market roads, feeder roads to highways and sec-
ondary highways. In order for a city street to qualify it. must be
a connecting link or feeder road for a highway)
The Commissioners were quick to say that they did not
desire to sell revenue bonds on the 20% surplus money that the
county receives from the State. The Star is in accord with this.
This money, which comes from the second cent and part of the
seventh cent gas tax, is used to help finance the County Road and
Bridge Fund operation. In the past this fund has been tied up
in bond issues to pave streets in Highland View and Oak Grove.
The county presently receives some $42,000.00 annually from this
fund. Any use of this fund would require placing a mill tax in
the Road and Bridge Fund for each $11,000.00 that is taken out
for any purpose. This could result in a possible hike in taxes.
The Commissioners did not refuse to attach this fund in a bond
issue but they expressed a reluctancy toward doing so.
The County Commissioners appear to be fully aware of
our needs and are trying to determine the best (and cheapest)
method of financing the project. They are now considering
building the streets in the city that they can out of the current
funds available and trying to get the aforementioned law changed
in the April session of the Legislature and then float a bond issue
to build all of the streets in Port St. Joe out of the Secondary
Road Funds without additional taxes. This was what we of Port
St. Joe wanted, and according to the Commissioners they will see
that we get it if the law can be changed.
Of course several streets in the city will qualify under pres-
ent laws. A small bond issue can now be floated to build these
streets -- but if the law can be changed next year, it would be
next to impossible to float another bond issue to pave city streets
that might then be eligible.
We might point out here and now, that information com-
ing into Port St. Joe this week and for the past three weeks, Port
St. Joe will see considerable growth in the next year with the
growth of the missile tracking system on Cape San Blas. Con-
servative estimates would place at least 300 more families in Port
St. Joe by next year at this time. This would mean even more
streets that would be needed. Their construction would assuredly
have to come under a bond issue also.
What with these future plans now shaping up in Port St.
Joe, we don't envy the Commissioners their job of having to pro-
vide for the needs a growing city. We have never envied them in
the past. The Star pledges to give its whole-hearted support to
the completion of planned improvements and feel that the im-
provements will come as long as we work with one mind of see-
ing our county and our city continue to grow and prosper.

Rise and Fall
of Old St. Joseph
Period of Speculation
This was one of the recurring
periods 'of intensive speculation
and overdevelopment, which econ-
omists now recognize as one of
the phases of a business cycle.
Everywhere there was a wild orgy
of real estate development, aided
by cheap paper money issued by
banks with enormous capitals. The
chief financial institution of Flor-
ida was the Union Bank, with
headquarters at Tallahassee. With
its large apparent assets, any pro-
ject which interested its stock-
holders was bound to be a success,
even if temporary and fictitious.
The interest of the oanks in St.
Joseph is often brought to light.
Thus in 1836 it was claimed that
the presidents of the Union Bank
of Florida, of the Bank of Column-
bus, and of the Commercial Bank
of Apalachicola, and the ex-presi-
dent of the Bank of Marianna,
were financially interested in the
town. In the same year, Ben
Chaires, a banker and planter of
Tallahassee, was president of the
Lake Wimico and St. Joseph Canal
and Railroad company. This close
connection, between the banks and
the town must always be remem-
bered by those who wish to un-
derstand its history.
The next steps taken by the pro-
mnoters were the construction of a
railroad from Lake Wimico to the
bay, and the erection of terminal
facilities at both ends. Towards
the close of October, or at the
very beginning of November, 1835,
it was reported that 100 carpen-
ters and 200 laborers were em-
ployed on the railroad and that
two or three hundred more were
daily expected front the north.
The exact date of completion of
the railroad is not known, but in
an advertisement dated August 13,
1836, it was announced that the
storage houses and wharf on Lake
Wimnico were completed, that those
on the bay were almost finished,
and that the railroad with passen-
get and freight cars and two im-
proved Baldwin locomotives were
ready for work.
The formal opening of the new
road probably occurred on Mon-
day, September 5. 1836, for the
newspapers of Florida and Georgia
give an account of the events of
that day thus:
LOCOMOTIVES IN FLORIDA
On Monday, the 5th inst., a Lo-
comotive drawing a train of 12
cars containing upwards of 300
passengers ,passed over the rail-
road connecting the flourishing
'town of St. Joseph with the Apa-
lachicola River, The trip, a dis-
tance of eight miles, was performed
in the short space of 25 minutes.
The engineer is confident, from
the superiority of the road and en-
gine, that the route can be accom-
plished in eight minutes,
While the railroad was being
completed. The promoters were not
idle in other directions. The shoals
at the mouth of Lake Wimico were
removed and the channel widened.
The sale-of the lots of the new
town was announced for Decem-
ber 14, 1835. The settlement was
incorporated by an act of the legis-
lative council of 1836. This pro-
vided for the establishment of a
free school, for the.support of the
port, for the regulation of taverns,
markets and quarantine, in addi-
tion to prescribing the form of
The Bank of St. Joseph, with a
capital of $1,000,000, and the St.
Joseph Insurance company, with a
capital of the samnle amount, were
also incorporated by this session
of the council. It must be added,
however, that both of these enact-
ments were annulled in July, 1836,
by the United States Congress.
Meets At Hotel
The Gladiolus Circle of the Port
St. Joe Garden Club met Thursday
afternoon at the Motel St. Joe
with Mrs. J. C. Arbogast as the
guest speaker. Mrs. Arbogast's sub-
ject was "Spring Planting for Sum-
mier Glory". The very informative
talk was enjoyed by ten members.
Mrs. Arbogast also congratulated
the Circle on having two national
accredited judges; they are Mrs.
Ethel M. Bridges who has been an
accredited judge for about a year
and Mrs. Fred Maddox who recently
received her national certificate.
Three very lovely arrangements
were judged. Mrs. Earl Herndon
received the blue ribbon on her
pansy and rooster composition.
Delightful refreshments were ser-

hadn't I thought of that before

my wife to that question!) It does
present a little different angle of
one talking about one's operation
before instead of after! Now, I'm
wondering if a solemn promise here
