Cecil G. Costin, Jr., offered the
following explanation of his pro-
posed-bill to create an Industrial
Development Cojnmission f o r
Gulf County. The proposed legis-
lation has received considerable
opposition from various sources.)
"I have noted opposition to a pro-
posed plan for a Gulf County In-
dustrial Development Commission
which I mentioned in my weekly
report printed in a recent issue of
"The Star". I feel that this opposi-
tion may have stemmed from a lack
of ulderstan ing o f thp lan and
thep objectives to be accomplished
since no legislation has yet been
drafted to provide for this commis-
sion. In the last sentence of my re-
port concerning this plan, I called
upon all interested persons to give
me their views on such an agency
relative to its powers and the me-
thod of financing its operation. In
view of this request, I did not an-
ticipate immediate opposition to a
plan to promote the industrial de-
velopment of our County which was
still in a formative stage, and which
would be subject to an exchange
of ideas among all persons inter-
ested before a proposed law would
be presented to the legislature.
The Constitution requires that No-
tice of intention of such legisla-
tion be published 30 days prior to
its introduction in the legislature,
a4d ample tfmte wo04l4 have been
provided for such an exchange of
"I was prompted to propose a
plan of this nature to the people
of Gulf County for the reason that
in the last session of the legislature
I sponsored a bill to provide for a
survey of the economic potential of
the Counties in the Apalachicola
River Valley system with particu-
lar emphasis on the Gulf County
Intracoastal Canal, and an approp-
riation of $17,000 was approved by
the State for this purpose. A very
comprehensive survey of Gulf Coun-
ty and its adjoining counties, was
made ,by Arthur D. Little, Inc., of
Cambridge, Mass., relative to the
development opportunities, econ-
omic potential, an- a suggested
community development program
was outlined. In the report of this
firm, many types of Industries were
mentioned that could avail them-
selves of the resources of our
county to an economic advantage.
It was pointed out in the report
that present public pier and stor-
age facilities in our excellent deep
water port in Port St. Joe were in-
adequate, and that the improve-
ment of these facilities be given
priority. Many other economic ad-
vantages of our locality were point-
bd out in the report. The statement

Session of legislation Is Half Over;
Costin Hopes for Reapportionment
During the latter part of this week, the current legislative session
will be half over. The biggest problem facing the legislature now is
to get the appropriation bill drafted in its final form for considera-
tion of both the House and Senate. Although I was hopeful at the
beginning of the session that we could keep the appropriations within
the anticipated revenues in order to avoid new taxes, it looks doubt-
ful now, and it is very likely that
some new taxes may be needed. opposition. I feel that their oppo-

meetings in an attempt to reduce

have to reduce the first draft of
our proposed appropriation by at
least 20 million dollars to come
on the fact that they want the
smaller counties to use their sec-

C of C, City Dads
Representative Cecil G. Costin, Jr., received further opposi-
tion for his Industrial Development Commission for Gulf County
this week when both the Port St. Joe Chamber of Commerce and
the Port St. Joe City Commission officially went on record as op-
posing the measure.
Last week, Harry H. Saunders voiced his objection of the
measure. Costin immediately defended his project in a press release
to a Panama City newspaper last Thursday afternoon, saying that
in his opinion, the measure would be good for the county and could
be easily handled financially.
Following all the newspaper publicity, Max W. Kilbourn, who
acted as sponsor for the measure sent a letter to Saunders offer-
ing to withdraw his support if the people didn't want the Commis-
sion. Kilbourn's letter said that what he knew about the measure is
what was outlined to the County Commission by Costin In a meet-
ing recently. Kilbourn said that all but one of the Commissioners
looked on the legislation with favor and he was acting on their
behalf in sponsoring the bill.
Saunders has stated that there is no personal anomosity on
his part toward Costin and "has no hard feelings" toward him. He
said that he is taking his action because he feels the project would
be too expensive for the county.
Costin has now called for a public meeting on the subject for
Wednesday, May 20 at 8:00 p.m. at the City Hall.

In a meeting of the Chamber of Commerce Monday night
Harry H. Saunders, chairman of the Industrial Development Com-
mittee reported that the Florida Development Commission had
notified the Chamber that a new industry was looking for a site
in the Port St. Joe area. The Commission sent a representative
to Port St. Joe to gather certain data that the industry required.
Saunders said that the St. Joe Paper Company furnished the in-
formation requested. He also reported that at present there
were'three industries that were
Port St. Joe.
Chamber members also were told
Monday that developers who re-
cently purchased a large tract of
land in the vicinity of Cape San
Blas will meet within three weeks
to discuss plans for constructing a
country club in that area. Jimmy
McNeil, who sold the land to the
developers, and is familiar with
their plans, said the group will start
construction on a 9-hole golf course,
swimming pool and clubhouse, ai-
ter a membership of from 200 to
300 has been obtained. Tentative
dues for the club have been set at
$280.00 for initiation and around
$14.00 per month.
The developers, who reside in
South Florida and Texas, previous
ly disclosed that they eventually
intend to build 5,000 homes on the
tract of land, including other such
clubs as is mentioned here, shop-
ping districts and possibly some
light industry. This plan is to be
completed over -about a 10 year
'Saunders reported that Port St.
Joe has received favorable mention
as an industrial area at -the re ,ent
industrial convention held in Tam-
pa. He said Port St. Joe was the
only small city in Florida mention-
ed at the convention.
The industrial committee chair-
man also reported that he gained
considerable congressional support
for the Cross State Barge Canal
as the result of a recent trip to
Washington, D. C.
Other reports said that the Flor-
ida Power Corporation approached
the Chamber with an offer to pro-
dheet.'an industrial brochure for
Port St. Joe. The Power Corpora-
tion offered to compile all the ma-
terial, pictures, etc., and would pay
-half the cost of the prinitug-the
Chamber to bear the other half of
the cost. The brochure would deal
primarily with the possibilities of-
fered for chemical manufacture in
this area. The Power Corporation
also offered to undertake the job
of placing the brochures in "the
right hands" so that they would do
Port St. Joe the most good.
Under port development, Cham-
ber officials noted that dredging
already has started in Port St. Joe's
harbor, with a pipeline dredge now
in operation, working on the basin.
The pipeline dredge will be in Port
St. Joe approximately 120 days. A
hopper dredge is due to come into
the Bay soon and begin deeping
the channel. All dredging opera-
tions are expected to be completed
by the end of this year. This will
give Port St. Joe one of the deep-
est harbors and channels on either
the East or West coast of Florida.

had plans to construct a new ditch
in the same area, but one that
will drain the same area that the
present ditch drains, and also drain
several other areas that the pres-

fore the land owners will give a

a nearby dump that does not be-
the county who needs it. After
lengthy discussion, Comm. Tharpe
made a motion, seconded by Mr.
Croxton, that the county will not
accept another application for pipe
for private use, but that the ap-
plications already approved will be

Digging Big Ditch
The Gulf County Mosquito Con-
trol organization is in the progress
of dredging out a large drain ditch
running through the middle of the
City Park, between 18th and 19th
Streets and on to St. Joseph's Bay.
The ditch running through the
park will be 50 feet across the top
and will be four to six feet deep.
Plans call for the beautification
of ta v sides of the drain ditch in
the p- rk.
According to City officials the
deepening of the ditch is so that
some. salt water will back up into
the ditch keeping the grass that
continually grows up in the bottom
of the shallow ditch now in exis-
tance from growing. The grass pro-
vides a constant maintenance prob-

and it is the purpose of the "Fire-
bee" program to train pilots to
"make the first shot count".
Kerrigan said- that "the recovery
program of the "Firebee" is unique
and money-saving to the tax payers.
Kerrigan said each "Firebee" costs
about $75,000.00 and that about 75%
of them are recovered to fly again.
Upon ryeceiving- a hit (which is
deflected to the "Firebee's" wing
tip by a device) a parachute gently
lets the drone to the ground or
water. The drone is built to float
for several hours. The drone is then
recovered by helicopter and taken
back to Tyndall where it is put
ready for use again.
