Gas Franchise Vote
SeCt or Tuesday
Port St. Joe's Freeholders will go to the polls Tuesday, May 5
to vote on the question of whether or not to grant a 30 year fran-
chise to the St. Joe Natural Gas Company, Inc., to furnish a natural
gas distribution system to the citizens of Port St. Joe.
The Gas Company, a home-owned Corporation is seeking the
franchise approval in order that they may appear before the Fed-
eral -Power Commission this month with the Houston Texas Gas
and Oil Corporation to seek permission to include Port St. Joe in
their expansion program. Local company officials say that this
expansion will probably be Houston's last expansion for a number
of years. Even after the franchise election, Port St. Joe's fate
as to being a recipient of natural gas service hinges on the Federal
Power Commission's ruling.
J. Lamar Miller, president of the St. Joe Natural Gas Company,
Inc., told The Star that should the franchise be approved, the Hous-
ton ICompany has said that almost surely the Federal Power Com-
mission will grant the laying of the pipeline to Port St. Joe. The ,
Houston Company has said that if Port St. Joe doesn't get natural
gas on this expansion program it will probably be eight to ten years
before .Port 'St. Joe will receive natural gas service.
In urging people to. vote Tuesday, Miller pointed out that Port
St. Joe is the only industrial city in Northwest Florida that doesn't
already have or have assurances of natural gas. As to the import-
ance of natural gas to industry, Miller pointed a finger at Pensa-
cole and that area, which has had natural gas for several years.
City Clerk R. W. Henderson said that only freeholders may
vote in franchise elections, and this will hold true with Tuesday's
balloting. A freeholder is a person owning property and living in
Port St. Joe. And, of course, he must be registered to vote.
Polls will be open'the usual hours from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
at the 'Fire Station in the City Hall. Election officials will be Mrs.
Joe -Ferrell, Mrs. Durel Brigman, Mrs. W. J. Daughtry and Mrs.

Harry H. Saunders this week sent a letter to Representative
Cecil G. Costin opposing proposed legislation being advertised
by Max W. Kilbourn and to be introduced to the Legislature by

extra financial burden to the tax payer and also pointed out in
his letter that the proposal, as signed by Kilbourn, was already

New Paper Mill
In Making For
Big Bend Area
Negotiations currently are under-
way for the location of a mammoth
new paper- mill in Northwest Flor-
ida that would employ more per-
sons than the combined Panama
City and Port St. Joe mills, it was
These are the purported facts
on the proposed new industry as
related by a reliable source:
-St. Marks tentatively has been
chosen as the site for the new in-
dustrial giant, which would employ
around 3,000 persons. Mariana and
Chattahoochee, however, still are
being considered as possible sites
and business leaders in these two
Northwest Florida cities are at-
tempting to nail the heavy -indus-
St. Marks is located about 90
miles east of Panama City on the
-Panama City's International Pa-
per Co. mill and Port St. Joe's St
Joe Paper Co. mill have a combin-
ed payroll of around 2,500 persons.
The new mill would- be consider-
ably larger than both these plants
and would give Northwest Florida's
entire economy a big boost.
If .he mill becomes a reality,
and there is an excellent possibility
that it will, both pulp and hard-
wood will be used to make paper.
Paper mills are the backbone of
Northwest Florida's heavy industry
and opening of the new plant prob-
ably would establish this area as
the leading paper producing'sector
of the world.

Costin made known his intention
last week to introduce legislation
to create an Industrial' Develop-
ment Commission for Gulf County.
He explained his plan for the Com-
mission as being strictly for the
sole purpose of seeking out and
bringing new industry to Gulf Coun-
ty. C'ostin also proposed abolishing
the present Port Authority and the
Dead Lakes Commission and en-
cludfng their activities and -being
into the new Industrial Commission.
These two groups are now func-
tioning with no east to the tax pay-
Expense to Taxpayers
In his letter to Costin, Saunders
said, "In my opinion the expense of
running an office of this 'type will
create a financial hardship on the
taxpayers of the County. I feel that
it will duplicate a lot of work now
being done by the Florida Develop-
ment Commission. I also feel that
the work that is being done by the
City of Port St. Joe, the Port St.
Joe Chamber of Commerce, and
Gulf County Commissioners, the
St. Joe Paper Company, the Flor-
ida Power Corporation, and the
Florida Development Commission
is giving a good coverage, without
expense to the taxpayers".
,Saunders told Costin that he was..
,going to seek support for his op-
position at the next meeting of the
City Commission of Port St. 'Joe,
the County Commission of Gulf
County and the Port St. Joe Cham-
-ber of Commerce in opposing the

The TAC Club (Teen Agers for Cancer) carried on the project
of selling peanuts Saturday to raise funds for the Cancer crusade.
The teen agers made a net profit of $159.78 on their sale. Officials

canvass chairman, showed that more money was collected from
that source this year than last year.

Help Port St. Joe Obtain Natural Gas
Vote At The Freeholders Election
AT THE CITY HALL ON
QUESTION: What is the purpose of the Freeholders election to be held in the
City of Port St. Joe on Tuesday, May 5, 1959?
ANSWER: For the Freeholders of Port St. Joe to decide whether or not a
franchise is to be awarded for the furnishing of natural gas to the people
and businesses of Port St. Joe.
QUESTION: If the people vote to award a franchise to St. Joe Natural Gas
Company, Inc., will that help Port St. Joe to obtain natural gas?
ANSWER: Yes, because for the consumers to obtain natural Igas there must
first be constructed a gas pipeline distribution system in Port St. Joe to
bring the gas to the individual homes and businesses, St. Joe Natural Gas
,Company, Inc., will build the distribution system in Port St. Joe and bring
natural gas to the individual consumers.
QUESTION: Is it necessary that a franchise be awarded right away?
ANSWER: ,Yes, because the Natural Gas Pipeline Company that will bring
natural gas to Florida, Houston Texas Gas and Oil Corporation, must first
obtain permission from the Federal Power Commission to build a pipeline
to Port, St. Joe and to furnish Port St. Joe with natural gas. An application
was filed last week by the Houston Company with the Eederal Power Com-
mission for authority to serve Port St. Joe and other cities that were left off
of the original pipeline. St. Joe Natural Gas Company and the Houston
Texas Gas and Oil Corporation must prove that it is necessary and desirable
for Port St. Joe to be furnished natural gas. If Port St. Joe does not dem-
onstrate its need and desire to have natural gas at this hearing before the
Federal Power Commissioi, it will be many years before Port St. Joe again
has an opportunity to get natural gas.
QUESTION: What is St. Joe Natural Gas Company, Inc?
ANSWER: It is a Corporation whose stock is, entirely owned by people who
live in the City of Port St. Joe.
QUESTION: May anyone who wishes buy stock in St. Joe Natural Gas Com-
ANSWER: Yes, the ,only requirement is that the perspn must live in Port St.
QUESTION: Why is the sale of stock limited to people in Port St. Joe?
ANSWER: Because it's believed that local people are more interested in
*the development and growth of Port St. Joe than,any other persons. If
the citizens of Port St. Joe own the natural gas distribution system they
will be able to demand and receive efficient gas service.
QUESTION: How much stock will be available and wbat will the price per
ANSWER: There will be 150,000 shares of stock available at a par value price
of $1.00 per share. .
QUESTION: If a franchise is awarded St. Joe Natural Gas System, is that
Company absolutely required to construct a natural gas distribution system
and furnish the people of Port St. Joe with natural gas?
ANSWER: Yes, the City of Port St. Joe has wisely specified in the franchise
that St. Joe Natural Gas Company must have a natural gas distribution sys-
tem completed and in operation within 48 calendar months from the date
of the franchise election, on May 5, 1959, and if they do not, the franchise
will be cancelled. It is contemplated that the natural gas system will be in
operation much' sooner.
QUESTION: When will natural gas be available in Port St. Joe?
ANSWER: Under present planning, natural gas will be available during the
QUESTION: May St. Joe Natural Gas Company, Inc., sell or assign its fran-
chise to anyone else?
ANSWER: No. Any transfer of the franchise would have to be approved in
writing by the City Commission of the City. St. Joe Natural Gas Company,
Inc., will furnish natural gas to the people of -Port St. Joe. The franchise
will not be transferred, now or in the future.
QUESTION: How does the cost of natural gas to the consumer compare with
the cost of other fuels?
ANSWER: It is considerably cheaper overall, depending, of course, on the
QUESTION: Will the rates charged by St. Joe Natural Gas Company, Inc., be
regulated by a governmental agency?,
ANSWER: Yes. Rates will be regulated by the Florida Railroad and Public
QUESTION: Is the franchise an exclusive franchise?
ANSWER: No, it is not an exclusive franchise. Other gas companies in Port
St. Joe will still have the right to operate just as they are doing now..
QUESTION: Will natural gas help the growth of Port St. Joe?
ANSWER: Yes because it will provide a cheap, highly efficient fuel, and will
attract new industry for that reason.
QUESTION: Will Port St. Joe be adversely affected should we not obtain
ANSWER: Yes, because Port St. Joe is the only industrial community along
th'e Florida Gulf Coast that does not have natural gas.
QUESTION: How can I, as a resident of Port St. Joe, help obtain natural gas?
* ANSWER: By voting on May 5, "For the Franchise" if you are a freeholder.
If you are not a freeholder, by urging those who are to vote for the franchise
for natural gas.

Surveys and reports for several approaching a school bus from 'the

grams prove that drivers trained in Engineering. though last. ia not
schools have 50 per cent fewer ac-
cidents than untrained drivers in
the same age bracket.
Florida needs such a program
as well as a revision of present
state traffic laws, and these are
included in the AAA program.
Driver education in our schools
can be made effective and can be
financed through a 50 cents a year
increase in driver's license fees.
Any thinking motorist will realize
that an investment of 50c a year
for greater highway safety and
fewer accidents will return a hand-
some dividend and on this basis
should support such legislation. It
is a cheap premium to pay for lives
saved .and repair costs.
The AAA also recommends, the
re-examination of drivers who are
involved in an accident. Suspen-
sion of license for habitual traffic
violators under a fair point system,'

While advocating this helpfull
legislation in an effort to reduce
accidents and loss of life the AAA
stands strongly opposed to any in-
crease in state gasoline tax until

Every motorist should give ser-

make his wishes known to his leg-
