"Port St. Joe-The Outlet Port for the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee Valley"
PORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA
THURSDAY, APRIL 5, 1962
by W.$.LEY R. RAMSEV
Reading the papers the other day
we came across an article relating
'to the cost of Bobby Kennedy's
round the world jaunt and a por-
tion of .braggadocio of just how
much money he saved the U. S.
by using commercial air liners as
against military transportation.
The article gave the cost of Bob-
by's travels at $19,000.00. The same
journey on a U. S. Government
plane would have cost in the neigh-
borhood of $225,000.00

former City Auditor and Clerk, R. W. Henderson.
Mayor Frank Hannon put a dam-

lar meeting of the City Commis-
sion, and would be conducted as
Han-non then called for anyone
who wished to bring something be-
fore the Ci'ty Board to approach
the chair, but non did, so the meet-
ing moved along.
Although a rather lengthy meet-
ing was expected, the shortest

and Commissioner Tom S. 'Colde-
wey. The Board moved to adjourn

day, at 10:00 a.m. to interview an
,applicant for the position of City

ficially, Henderson' was "temporar-
ily suspended" from his position
due to "inadequacies and errors"
in 'the city records, found 'by the
auditing firm of Smith, Ryan and
Carlisle, Certified Public Account-
ants of ,Jacksonville.
Henderson did appear briefly be--
fore the Board, however, when he
requested that :acting Auditor and

certain portions of 'the minutes of
the special meeting in which the
Board voted for Henderson's sus'
Despite the -expectations of the
crowd and 'the -brevity of the meet-
ing, the City Board did transact
several minor items of business.
The Board voted to receive bids
on 60 pieces of 2x10 'boards 16 feet
long and 40 pieces of 2x8 hoards, 16
feet long to construct bleachers at

April showers may make May
flowers. But don't push your luck
with this spontaneous generation
theory. It may be all wet.
Rather than trus rain alone, try
planting flower seeds. Prompt ac-
tion now will put fresh blossoms
in the garden by the time the gay
colors of spring begin to fade.
For thriftier plants that produce
larger blossoms, germinate the
seeds in flats of sterilized soil.
It is easy to cook the soil in the
oven. Merely heat a pan full for
one hour at 250 degrees. Be sure
the soil is moist when you place it
in the oven, as steam heat is a sure
killer of soil diseases.
If the czar of the kitchen refuses
the loan of he electric appliance,
then, use the patio grill. Chemicals
obtained at the garden -supply cen-
ter can be used to sterilize soil,
if heating a 'pan of dirt becomes too
hot a domestic issue.
The .big reason *for sterilizing
seedbed soil is to prveent damping

young plants to rot at the soil level.
If you prefer to plant a flower
seedbed outside, prepare a small
area in one corner of the garden
in a well protected spot. This is a
good idea, because seedlings will
have a better chance to survive at-
tacks .by birds, scratching sessions
by dogs and cats and trampling by
roving bands of young cops-n-rob-
Prior to planting, work the soil
until it is loose and friable, add a
sprinkling of garden fertilizer to
the surface and then mix the plant
food into the top four inches of'
the soil. Water the area well, rake
it smooth and then sow the seed
in shallow trenches that are about

There are a score or .more an-

is the ageratum. Varieties of this
low growing 'border plant produce
blue, lavender-pink, golden yellow
and creamy white blossoms.
Celosia, either the cockscomb or
feather type, will give a brilliant
,show of color during the hot
months ahead. Color-wise you can
choose fiery red or golden yellow.

say settle the roots of the newly

set in muck or peat soils.
Here is a tip on how to make a
raised flower bed around the base
of a tree without possible damage
to the tree.
Construct an inner and an outer
masonry wall to contain the bed.
Build .the inner wall close to the
circumference of the tree-allow-
ing ample space for tree growth.
The distance between walls and
the height of the walls depend on
the size of the 'bed you desire.

It's wonderful to be sewing, cook-
ing, housekeeping, 'and writing with
a steady hand plus an alert and
peaceful mind at fourscore and
five years! Grandpa Boyles with
seven additional years .says he has
to do most 'of the sweeping for
mam! He's quite busy with his live-
stock family at the barn and it's
gardening time there, too. Our
thanks to kind friend's in Takoma
Park, Md. (another Washington su-
burb) for a most interesting and in-
formative letter. It was our privi-
lege to have 'a visit with these fine
folks in 1960 where we were shown
the beautiful churches, a modern
hospital, college and publishing
house operated by the Seventh Day
Adventists. We discovered that Ta-
koma Park is world headquarters
for this 'denomination engaged in
a great work for the betterment of
mankind the world over.
