Since this editor has a previous
engagement for tomorrow night,
and find it impossible -to attend the
County Board's hearing on the new
proposed budget, we would like to
take this opportunity to offer our
objections to the tax rate proposed
for the coming year.
Under present economic circum-
stances, we think the millage rate
is toor high.
We have definite reasons for
Thinking thusly, .beyond .the reason
that, it will further pinch a flat
pocketbook to pay the ante.
First off, we think that an in-
' crease in tax to be paid by a rate
uf 39.2%, in one year is too great.
We are seeking new industry in
Gulf County and such drastic tax
hikes is tbh best way in the world
to -keep from getting tbem-.. *4
Before you object too strenuous-
ly over our percentages, let -us
prove our figures.'
First the hike in valuation of
taxable property has hiked our tax
bill the equivalent of one and a
half mills. The -mill value has been
hiked $1,361.60 on each'mill. Mul-
tiply this by the proposed 16 mill
increase (disregarding the other
six-tenths nmill increase) and you
come up with the figure of $21,-
783.60-or at the present mill value
-one and a half mills. Add this to
the 3.6 .mill increase and you have
an increase of 5.1 mills.
Last year's mileage rate was set
at 13. Simple division will show
you that the millage rate has been
hiked 39.2 .percent.
This means that for every.$1.-00
paid in taxes last year, you will
now have to pay $1.392 this year.
The 'decrease in revenues suf-
fered by the county board of $17,-
542.00 came through the reduction
in such things as tourist spending
in the State-one of our biggest
sources 'of revenue. This reflects
a slack of business for last year-
a slack that was also forcibly felt
in Gulf County.
We say that its, unwise to in-
crease taxes by such a percentage
in the face of these things.
We realize-and our past editor-
ials will bear us out-that Gulf
County and Florida citizens get by
light on taxes. But it is not fair to
make the vast minority bear the
heavy 'load of taxes, while the most
of the citizens get by free of
charge. We believe in paying our
own way, but we balk at paying
the way of someone else who bene-
fits as much or more than we do
from these taxes.
ECONO Y NEEDED
We .believe it is imperative that
the County Commission stu&y the
tentative .budget further and cut
out the frills.
That old bugagoo, the road and
'bridge fund, is about $30,000.00 too
heavy. :Some of the other funds are
correspondingly too high. Some of
the funds are fixed and can nei-
ther be decreased or increased. But
those funds that can bb regulated
should be cut to the bone.
We understand that the road and
bridge fund contains money for
.some paving the county .plans to
do with its own labor and devices.
This has been tried before and has
We 'trust' that the Commission
will use a very sharp "blue pencil"
on their proposed budget.

In City Police Patrol Car
Being Installed Now
Hospital To Be
On August 20
The 'City Commission was noti-
fled Tuesday night at their regular
meeting by the St. Joseph Tele-
phone and Telegraph Company that
equipment for the City's radio-tele-
phone system had arrived and was
now in the process to being Install-
ed. The equipment was ordered
about a year ago for installation of
radio-telephone service in the Po-
'lice Department patrol car.
Since the original order was
-placed by the St. Joseph Telephone
and Telegraph Company, newer and
better equipment has been put on
the market and the company then
changed its order for the newer
equipment. This has caused most
of the year's delay for installing
the radio-telephone. Part of the de-
lay was due to having to obtain a
permit from the Federal' Communi-
cations Commission to operate the
The new telephone will enable
those wishing to call the police de-
partment to dial, and talk directly
to the police partol car just like
dialing an ordinary telephone.
In checking with Howard Mc-
Kinnon, telephone company super
intendent, Wednesday, it w as
learned that 'the co npany is trying
to get the new ,facilpTy into opera-
tion by the end of this week. Mc-
Kinnon said that initiation of the
service will depend .on a represen-
tative of the company furnishing
the equipment, 'arriving in Port St.
Joe this week and getting the ap-
paratus into operation. McKinnoa
said the phone company would try
to give the radio telephone in the
police patrol car the same tele-
phone number as that now in the
directory for the police department.
It is now uncertain as to what the
number will be.
DEDICATION OF HOSPITAL
Mayor pro-tem I. C. Nedley an-
nounced to the City Commission
Tuesday night that the dedication
and open house for the new enlarg-
ed Municipal Hospital has been
definitely set now for Sunday, Au-
gust 20 beginning -at 2:30 rpm.
Nedley said that work on the
hospital enlargement was virtually
finished 'and new equipment for the
hospital was arriving daily.
Work on the hospital job was be-
gun a year ago and is costing in
the neighborhood of $450,000.00.
Part of the money is a direct grant
from the Federal -government from
Hill-Burton Funds. The City float-
ed a bond issue to pay their por-
tion of the cost-approximately
half of the expansion cost.

What A TV Set Cost 25 Years Ago
If someone complains that a television set costs
more today than it did 25 years ago, you'd lift an
eyebrow. A quarter-century back, there were no
television sets to be had-at any price. The same
logic applies to the statement that "prescriptions
cost more today than they used to cost." The drugs
you now get didn't even exist until recent years.
So the benefits these drugs bring the rapid
cures, the lives saved could not be bought at
any price. That's why we say .
