Courts Will Not Cure Juvenile Problem
A few words have been issued forth during this sessoin
of the Florida Legislature concerning the need for additional
juvenile correctional facilities and salaries for Gulf County.
It would seem that th'e juvenile problem is growing in Gulf.
This problem isn't unique with Gulf County. Juvenile delin-
quency is growing over the nation at a rate five times faster
than the population of teen-agers is increasing.
But we believe that the provision of these additional fa-
cilities for the juvenile work is about as effective as placing
a pan under a leak in the roof. It keeps the water off the
floor (until the pan overflows) but it does not fix the hole in
the roof. More juvenile authorities and facilities will keep
the juvenile delinquents out of our hair and neatly handle
them out of the sight of polite society. But the problem is
Rather than place the pan under the leak, we think you
should fix the roof before irreparable damage is done. And,
likewise, rather than provide more juvenile correction facili-
ties, we think the ultimate of the problem should be attacked
before the problem is larger than the ability of society to
Ironically enough, the permanent and basic cure for juve-
nile delinquency is the cheapest cure that the tax-paying
public can secure. The cure for juvenile delinquency is
the problem of the parents. How do they do it? By getting
themselves closer to God and guiding their children in the
same paths. Taking enough interest in their children to
know where they are and what they are doing as long as
they remain minors. The embarrassing behaviour of some
of our Port St. Joe children with the band in Marianna should
serve as warning enough that this thing need be done. There
is nothing like parental guidance by God-fearing parents to
keep a child on the straight and narrow path. And, there's
nothing like a. weekly study of God in God's house to remind
a child of what is right and what is wrong.
But, how many parents will take this simple and econ-
omical way out of our, juvenile problem? Very few. As a.
matter of fact, the whole world could better itself in this
same manner. Let's think about it just a minute. Do you
realize that if the whole world as individuals would take the
teachings of the Bible as a pattern for their lives, the cost of
operating nations would be cut more than in half? There
would be no need for armies or police to protect the rights
of people-people would love their neighbor as theirselves.
There would be no need for spending billions for war mater-
ials. Any number of avenues would be found to save money
that is now spent to provide might against wrong. Think
how many hungry people this money would feed;
In view of this, we need to cure the delinquency prob-
lem-again by going to the core of the matter-by facing
up to the responsibilities placed in our standing as adults.
Adults are supposed to know better than to act like teen-
age delinquents. And adults are supposed to know and ac-
cept the responsibility of leading their children in the right
We Can Solve Our School Finances
Gov. Farris Bryant is standing firm, against imposition
of any new state tax. In this matter, -we add our "hurrahs"
for the Governor. In so doing, he has drawn the fire of the
educational groups of Florida, which decry the pitiful finan-
cial state of the school facilities in Florida.
There is not necessarily any conflict between the Gover-
nor's stand and the educators. There are other and more
efficient ways to obtain additional revenue than by levying
new state-wide taxes.
SAs the Governor expressed it, "some counties should
get on the ball." While he didn't express it, this should and
probably does, include Gulf County.
Most of Florida's school financial ills can be traced to
glaring inequities in assessments of property for tax pur-
poses. It is difficult to obtain accurate figures, but the maga-
zine Florida Trend has thrown some light on the problem in
its May issue.
Florida Trend quotes the Legislative Council as listing
ten counties as needing relief to continue operations of their
schools at present levels. Seven of these counties are in the
The magazine says that nine of the counties are at or
near the bottom in ratio of assessed valuations of property
to actual value, as computed by the Railroad Assessment
Board. The counties named are Calhoun, Hamilton, Jack-
son, Madison, Okaloosa, Santa Rosa, Sumter, Walton and
How Gulf County escaped this stigma, we do not know.
In a telephone conversation with County Tax Assessor Sam-
uel A. Patrick Tuesday, The Star ascertained that this same
Railroad Assessment Board computes Gulf's assessments at
31 to 32 percent. Patrick said that he actually assesses pro-
perty at one third of value. A small ray of light in the prob-
lem is that Patrick stated his intention of raising the valua-
tion this year to 40 percent of value. A small beginning in
the right direction, but not enough to solve the problem.
Washington County has assessments of 27.44 percent of
actual value (lowest in the state according to Trend); Jack-
s6ii, 32.45; -Calhotin, .78; &Aid Waltoll, 3.02, 'Verbal communication is spent in

American tradition alive?
SELF-reliance or the desire to "do-it-your-
self" is an old American custom. Your
hardware dealer is a big reason why this tradi-
tion continues to thrive. Hc..is constantly alert,
for new ways to help you fix that leaky faucet,
the jammed lock, the broken window..
Service is his business. That's why your
hardware dealer stocks literally thousands of
items---so that he can serve you at moment's
notice. And as your friend and neighbor he
helps you in other ways, too. Whatever you
decide to do yourself, paint, repair a lamp,
clean the piping or shingle the roof, he's ready
with sound advice for you.
And how rewarding for you if your hard-

McNeill Tells Rotary of
President Jimmy McNeill, in his
capacity as member of the Florida
Turnpike Authority presented the
program to ithe Rotary Club Thurs-
day. McNeill told of the set-up of
the Authority 'and how they oper-
ate without state funds.
According to the speaker the Au-
thority operates completely inde-
pendent of state funds. Financing
for road construction is made by
the Authority and bonds repaid lby
Turnpike income The Pike even
employs its own road patrolmen.
The present turnpike is approxi-
mately 120 miles long and was built
to handle thru traffic 'to South
Florida. Last year the Pike took
in $5,167,683.27 in toll. The Pike
authority is presently ahead of
schedule in repaying its bonded in-
It is the job of the Turnpike Au-
thority to plan, finance, construct
:and operate turnpikes. The present
authority is now at work exploring
the possibility of more turnpike
construction in Florida.
SMcNeill said the Turnpike had
two enviable records. It has had
only 1.39 fatalities ,per 100,000 miles
traveled and it has only a seven
percent cost on engineering .seUlices
whereby the State Road Depart-
ment engineering costs ruin about
25 ,per cent.
Visits Kiwanis Club
"Safety on the water is the only
sensible way to go boating", said
Dillon Smith as -he addressed the
Kiwanis Club Tuesday on safety
in navigation. Smith, a member of
the St. Andrew Bay Power Squad-
ron, is -an instructor in water safe-
ty and navigation here in Port St.
Joe and has conducted several clas-
ses in power boat operation and
The speaker told the Kiwanians
that it is now Florida law to have
certain safety items on all boats.
In the more common class of boats
up to 26 -feet, a .boat, Inboard or
outboard, must have: Coast Guard
approved life preserver for each
person aboard, fire -fighting equip-
ment, horn audible for a half mile,
running lights. All these items are
basic 'legal equipment. Other equip-
ment necessary for .safe operation
of ,boats are: good anchor and stout
line, boat bailerr, flashlight, distress
flares, first aid kit, spare engine
parts and tool kit.
Smith said that the best piece
of advice for safe boat operation
is "don't overload your boat".
Kiwanis District Governor Gene
Castleberry and District Member-
ship Chairman, Howard Naeseth,
both of .St. Andrew visited the lo-
cal club Tuesday. Castleberry con-
gratulated the local club on its
current good grades and urged con-
tinued efforts along these lines.
Naeseth pointed out the needs for
good attendance by the club mem-
Other guest was Courtney Martin
of the Port St .Joe High School.
