"Scotch Attitude" Needed In Budget
It is our privilege to congratulate the Gulf County Com-
mission for their start on preparing a new operating budget
for the coming year. Monday night, the Board heard sev-
eral requests for operating funds from a few of the county
departments, and assumed an attitude of economy during
the coming year. Certainly economy is needed.
While Gulf County's tax rolls were increased by 1.3
million dollars over last year, this isn't necessarily the green
light to go on a spending spree with money that might come
in from this extra valuation. This is because the extra valu-
ation doesn't mean that new tax payers were added to the
roll. The hike in valuation came from the tax assessor ad-
ding to the value of property already on the tax roll. The
extra money-if it is to come-will come from the same
handful of taxpayers now reaching into their pockets. The
tax assessor merely enlarged the same old pockets, so to
The fact that the tax assessor enlarged the value of tax-
able property in the county, doesn't automatically add to the
dollar in hand to pay additional taxes on additional valuation.
Take it from us, times have been rugged during the past
year with those now paying taxes-as well as with those who
are homestead exempt. We feel that this is no time to in-
crease the total amount of the present county budget for
next year. And we are happy to see that the commission in
its preliminary budget hearings also has these leanings.
We know there will be some new items and requests for
funds in the new budget, but maybe a shifting around of
funds in one department or another can accomplish some of
the more worthy requests without enlarging the budget.
That old bugaboo, which always gives the commission
a fit-the Road and Bridge Fund--still is to be dealt with
It is our information that this department is asking for a
whopping $173,587.00 this year, or $18,872.00 over last year.
If the Road Fund gets the same- treatment as other Funds
when its time comes. for a hearing, the commission will also
pare this request down to a sensible sum.
While we don't wish the county to go backwards, we do
believe that the time has come to hold our own, or bide our
time for a year, until the economic situation in Gulf County
makes our gnat-size pocketbooks catch up to the dimensions
of our giant size desires.
A Nation Going Mad
The United States is being swept by an epidemic of in-
sanity, which has found feeding grounds in racial conflict.
Every country always has its madmen, but until a gen-
eral outbreak of madness occurs among the people these
madmen are harmless.-

yea.r ago ,to Port St. Joe where he

John Calvin came Iby his fiddling

money for school PTA groups, John
L. Dickey mixed it with such fidd-

and Y. Z. Hamilton. His favorite
tune was "Sally Gooden".
In those days, John I. carried his
three boys along with 'him. Reuben,
the youngest, John Calvin and
Paul. All of them played something.
John Calvin and Reuben were most-

gets all the potent prescription drugs it needs to
keep big medical and hospital bills from ever com-
ing up. That's why we say ...
