Look back through your old is
aues of The Star for several weeks
back. You will find that in prac
tically every Issue, there is news oJ
growth or proposed growth for
Port St. Joe.
And the possible coming of
natural gas to Port St. Joe will
not hurt things one bit.
We especially like this idea of a
home-owned project. We are too
prone to have disagreements with
absentee ownership of utilities or
services, when probably what we
disagree with, suits most -of the
territory served by a utility or ser-
vice. A home-owned corporation can
be run like the borne folks want it.
And if, by chance, there is a dol-
lar or two made on 'the deal, it will
help Port St. Joe directly, not Tim-

of "mother's little angels" to keep
order in the schools.
We agree with "Sandspurs" that

tle more. applied psychology at

schools brings us to the little get-

these institutions were forcibly
brought before those in attendance.

the tax collector to collect $15.00

a minimum tax of $15.00 per year
on every family in Gulf County.

Start Procedure To
Float Bond Issue
The Gulf County Board of Com-
missioners met in special session
Friday night of last week to discus
floating a bond issue to finance the
construction of several road pro-
jects throughout Gulf County.
The bonds will be paid off with a
portion of, the county's share of
secondary road fund money.
Clerk George Y. C.'re read a list
of proposed roads to be paved un-
der the bond issue as follows;
Extension of Industrial Road in
Port St. Joe from Michigan Chemi-
cal Company site to State Road 71.
Streets in Port St. Joe.
First Street from U. S. 98 to Gar-
Garrison Avenue from First
Street to Fifth Street.
Garrison Avenue from Fifth
Street to Sixteenth Street.
Extension of Fifth Street from
U. S. 98 to Yacht Basin.
'Resurfacing of Long Avenue from
First Street to Fifth Street.
Resurfacing and culvert of Six-
teenth Street from Constitution
Drive to Garrison Avenue.
Twentieth Street from Long Ave-
nue to Garrison Avenue.
Extension of 'Long Avenue from
High School to Niles Road.
Extension of 'Bay 'City Road 'to
Extension of Dead Lakes Dam
Road from lola to River.
The total estimated cost of all
of the projects is $691,000.00. The
Commission will attempt to float
a bond issue for $850,000.00 with
only $765,000.00 available for con-
struction. Since the costs of the
roads is only an estimate, 10% must
be kept in contingency and 1%
will take care of the cost of issu-
ing the revenue certificates.
Prior to passing a resolution to
the State Road Department request-
ing the issue, Jhiairman George
Cooper asked for comments from
the several visitors present at the
meeting. H. H. 'Saunders said that
the St. Joe Paper Company had no
objection to either the bond issue
or the roads to be surfaced.
,J. L. Sharit questioned the Com-
mission, on behalf of 'the City of
Port St. Joe, about several road
projects .in the City that was re-
quested for paving but was in-
formed that the State would not

Dickens Gives Gas
Story To Kiwanis Club
Ben Dickens, local attorney gave
the Kiwanis Club a picture of the
proposed gas franchise in Port St.
Joe being sought by the St. Joe
Natural Gas Corporation, Inc.,.at
their Tuesday noon meeting.
Dickens pointed out to the club
that Port St. Joe was the only size-
able city oh the Gulf Coast that
is not now slated to be served by
natural gas. He avowed that this
would cost Port St. Joe industry
if allowed to remain so. He point-
ed to Pensacola and Milton as ex-
amples of his argument. "Those ci-
ties have had natural gas for many
years, and their industrial growth
has been phenomenal, with no small
part of that growth being because
of a natural gas supply".
Dickens warned that the com-
munity must move quickly to get
natural gas or be prepared to do
without its services for many years.
Dickens asked the Kiwanis Club
as individuals to throw their weight
behind the project. "The man in
the street packs more power toward
securing these things than any oth-
or force, so we are seeking your
aid in securing natural gas" Dick-
Guests of the club were Frank
Ruckman and Gene Cox from the
Key Club; Bob Carter of Panama
City, Yates Ross of Montgomery,
Walter Devine of Hollywood, Calif.,
Horace Cotton of Southern Pines
and Ed Eells of Port St. Joe.

The Rotary Club viewed the mo-

the Florida Power Corporation, at
their meeting last Thursday.

ganization of the 2,000 people in

counties. The movie showed the
current expansion of the utility and
listed some of its accomplishments
since its beginning in St. Peters-

last Friday against the Marianna
Bulldogs, losing by a 38-36 score.
Port St. Joe, although out-re-
bounded to a small degree by the
Bulldogs, maintained a tight enough
defense to keep the score from
soaring out of reach.
In the first quarter Marianna
squeezed out a 3-2 lead over the
Sharks. The action of the first half
was typical of a St. Joe ball game.
The Sharks controlled the ball, nev-

the advantage of a fast break while
never passing up a chance for a
sure two points.
Bobb Munn led the locals with
In the fourth and final quarter,

The company is seeking a 30 year

Several citizens were on hand at

pleasure at the prospect of natural
gas coming into Port St. Joe.
Some of the visitors expressed
their pleasure at the company being
designed as a local concern with
stock to be sold locally.
The City began negotiations widh
the gas company Tuesday, Febru-

when the company made their ini-
tial bid for a franchise. 'Before call-
ing for a franchise election, the
City extracted the agreement from
the company that they would wait
no longer than 48 months before
providing gas to Port St. Joe should
their franchise be approved.
The City required the gas com-
pany to agree to keep the mains in
good repair, or the city could do
the necessary repairs at cost of
material and labor plus 50 percent
of the repair costs for penalties.

31 Neighbor! IGA Fool Stores sell for less because of
Many basic reasons. One of the most
important reasons is that your IGA store owner sets his own prices. He knows
the people of his community; he is in a better position to cut his prices lower
than his competitor who has his prices set for him. This man may not be acquaint-
ed with or may not understand the problems of your particular community.
Conditions in your community may be different frormi those in another town five
to ten miles away. The man on the scene is in a better position to understand these
problems than a man many miles away, who sets the prices for IGA competitors.
Better understanding not only brings you better prices, but courtesy and
aratefum-,es a :a. ni ,ny come from a man who owns his own business.

This year, the light-, medium- and heavy-duty
