WE GOT TROUBLES
They say confession is good for
the soul. After this week we need
a lot of "goodness", tfr our soul.
You have heard 'that troubles
come in bunches like grapes? We
have had a king size bunch since
Saturday Ave went fishing and
couldn't fish for the Rivercade. Af-
ter we got back home to clean up
the bath tub was stopped up with
a golf ball down the drain. Our wife
informed us that the car wouldn't
start. Sunday it wouldn't start again
and took a battery charge. Sunday
afternoon while working on our
current project of rescreening both
of our screened porches, the dog
ran through a panel of screen wire
-one we had just replaced. Mon-
day capped it off. The motor on our
linotype had to be repaired. An-
other motor on the job press be-
gan to yell for new bearings. Mon-
day evening the heating element
on the linotype burned out. Not
another one anywhere nearby that
we knew of. No lead could ,be
melted for type for this week's pa-
par. Tuesday morning we went to
Wewahitchka to set type on friend
Ed Bandjough's Intertype and upon
returning had our first stroke of
good luck. Braxton Ward, electri-
cian extraordinary on such things
as motors and heating elements
had been thinking all night (while
working on Mrs. DuPont's paper
mill) about what could be done to
put us back in production. (He had
diagnosed our trouble the day be-
fore and worked with us until
10:00 p.m. Monday trying to re-
medy the situation.) He came up

Keep Your Can
Off The Street
Much effort, time and tax mon-
ey goes into the keeping of the
streets of Port St. Joe clean.
Most of this time and money is
used in picking up pop bottles,
beer cans and other debris along
the sides of the city streets. The
city urges that you take a pride
in the appearance of your city
and use a little more discretion
in where you throw your rub-
bish in the city.
Not only is the debris unsight-
ly but also dangerous. As one can
plainly tell the barefoot season
is here to stay for a few months.
Few things discourage a bare-
foot path more than a broken bot-
tle tossed aside by some thought-
less person. Take care of your
young ones. Keep your streets
clean. Save your tax money.
Be neat-It won't hurt a bit.

that the County could use much

A discussion was entered into
with reference to the Mosquito

unless all State 1 funds are ex-

County will loose about $30,000.00

tion and decided that the Mos-

that it does not have and without
the program will be discontinued.
Whereupon, there was a motion
by Comm. Cooper, seconded by

about the two
S. holes in the
ground? No? .
Well, well', well,
that's all of it,
and there's no
BOYLES more! Well, both
my grandfathers had a well .
deep, dark cooling wells. We were
not so lucky, while growing up
way out on the farm. We had a
spring only down and up a
rocky, steep hill ... took plenty
of muscle and arm power in those
days and we were stingy with wa-
ter. Hand wash, half pint; face and
hand wash, one pint; a full body
wash up limited most of the time
to one bucket; plenty of arguments.
4 few fights over whose turn it
was to pull the hill and draw the
water. Nevertheless it was wondre-
ful, wet, cold and delicious water.
We were very proud of our spring
and I've heard my dad elaborate
on its merits to many friends and
visitors Think he was almost
in the notion to bottle and sell it
as a sort of special', healing water.
In recent years a hydraulic pump
does the pulling and pushing .A
great thing, too. Man power, tuere
has been reduced from seven to
one. Our dad still holding the fort,
and mom just turns a spigot when
spring water is needed. Both in
their 80's have a keen appreciation
for progress with wells and springs
left in the background. Well, we
sure wandered from our subject
and think it well 'to get .back to
wells where, we started.
There are many, many kind of
wells and the one that is nearest
to our hearts at this time is one
that is also most important to- you
and everyone the plain, simple
wonderful underestimated matter
of just being -WELL good
health the great feeling of
well-being. Just stop a minute and
think. Regardless of the burdens
and difficulties of life you'll be
glad you're well. The word well
must have derived from the pure,
health giving waters that flow in
the depths of Mother EIarth. While
all is not well, or wells, should we
noc be glad to be as well, to see as
well, to hear as well, to smell as
well (most of the time), to live as
well, to eat as well, to sleep as well'.
In other words to have as many
wells? It is a thought that water
must come from the inside and the
depths of a well and is it not nec-
essary that being well, must also
come from 'the inside of our human
frames? Well, here's hoping you're
well, wishing you well', and think-
ing well of you while we're fully
conscious of the fact this subject
has not been exhausted or develop-
ed WELL. (.It is hoped the measure-
ments mentioned in the first para-
graph will not be taken too ser-
iously frankly, it was rough
guessing I did not measure!)
Well, friends and Sunshiners, it's
t'me to stop and I'm thinking you
ar.e thinking that's well.
P. S. Well, friends, back again,
thinking it's not so well we failed
to get in one little commercial and

Although not officially created as a county till 1915
from Palm Beach and Dade counties, Broward is rich in
Florida history. One of the first Seminole Indian
reservations is located in the county where archaeolo-
gists have uncovered many ruins of historic value.
According to Indian 'legends, New River, running
through the center of Fort Lauderdale, sprang from the
earth overnight. Today, Broward is one of the country's
fastest growing counties. Named for State Governor
N. B. Broward [1905-091 the county's main source of
revenue is the tourist industry.
In progressive Broward County, and throughout
Florida, the United States Brewers Foundation works
cons-talntly to assure the sale of beer and ale under
plant, orderly conditions. Believing that strict law
en'forenr nt :erveos the best interest of the people of
,'lorida, the Foundation stresses close cooperation with
the -itiird Forces, law enforcement and. governing
officials ;i its continuing "self-regulation" program.
