Dr. William L. Wright of the
State Health Department appeared
before the County Board Tuesday,
at the Board's request to discuss
replacing County Health Officer,
Dr. Willa Dean Lowery, who is on
leave of absence attending school
Commissioner Leo Kennedy,.act-
ing as spokesman for the Board
related charges to Dr. Wright that
he has previously presented to the
Kennedy stated that Dr. Lowery,
in his opinion, wasn't doing the
job as the Board would like to have
it done. He specifically listed the
discontinuance of pre-school physi-
cals for first grade students, not
enough time spent in Health Clin-
ic, and failure to examine athletic
participants. Kennedy also stated
that it was apparent that Dr. Low-
ery and othetl Health Department
employees "didn't get along".
Dr. Wright then went into his
explanation to the Board. He stat-
ed that Health Officers were al-
most impossible to obtain, pointing
out the fact that Gulf was without
these services for a year before Dr.
Lowery was hired. He also pointed
out that the officers had to meet
state specifications, which Dr. Low-
ery does. He also pointed out that
upon completion of her present
schooling, Dr. Lowery will be one
of the best qualified Health Offi-
cers in the state.
Dr. Wright also pointed out to
the Board that when Dr. Lowery
w~S hired ,she %%as-hired .v ith the
understanding that she was to re-
ceive the leave of absence to at-
tend school and that this was
agreed to by the County Board.
He asked the question whether
or not the Board had complained
to Dr. Lowery prior to her going
on leave of absence about the ac-
tivities of the Health Department.
The Board said they had not. Dr.
Wright then stated that it was
customary for County Boards to
set their own policies outside of
state requirements for the duties
of the Health Officer.
He then suggested to the Coun-
ty Board that they meet as a Board
with Dr. Lowery and state their
desires for the operation of the
Health Department, and then if
their desires were not carried out
begin taking steps for replacement.
Dr. Wright pointed out to the
Board that Dr. Lowery had been
operating the Department strictly
by her own ideas, and it was up
to the Board to stipulate what pol-
icy is to be followed.
Commissioner McDaniell moved
that the matter be tabled until the
Board could meet with Dr. Lowery.
The Board voted unanimous in fa-
vor of this course of action.

E. C. Harden, Sr., senior member of the Gulf County
Board of Commissioners stepped down for his successor
Tuesday morning along with commissioners Neva Croxton
and Jimmy Greer, who had both served two year terms. Har-
den, who has been chairman or vice-chairman every year of
his eight-year tenure on the Board spoke for all the retirees
in listing some of the accomplishments of the Board during
the past few years.
Foremost in the Board's accomplishments, according to
Harden's list, was road work. Several roads have been paved
throughout the county during Harden's administration; com-
pletion of the Dead Lakes Bridge and Dam; inauguration of
the garbage landfill service; placing of county employees
under workmen's compensation insurance, and other import-
ant steps of progress for the County.
Harden also pointed out that dur-
ing the past eight years, the mill-
age had never been over 13.8 nor
below 11.9, indicating a pretty
steady financial picture.
All three out-going Commission-
ers were presented plaques for out-
standing service to the county. All
of the incumbents expressed a de-

In selecting the county depart-

rent people were objected to. Com-
missioner McDaniell moved that
attorney William J. Rish of Port
St. Joe replace David Carl Gaskin
of Wewahitchka as attorney for
the Board. McDaniell stated that he
felt Gaskin's involvement with cer-
tain companies throughout the
County might stand in the way of
his representation of the county.

Commissioner Kennedy then en-
tered a motion to rehire Gaskin as
attorney for the Board stating that
all the attorneys in the county rep-

Gaskin's familiarity with county
business should be taken into con-
$150.00 to $125.00 per month, since
all services performed by the en-

dition to the retainer fee.

As most of you know, the land on St. Joseph's Point is
owned by the Federal Government with the exception of a
small tract directly in the center of the Peninsula and a
small tract of land at the base of the area. The 2,000 acres
on the point must be deeded to the State Park Board before
planning and construction can begin.
And this is where you come in. We had no idea when
we were writing last week's editorial urging Mr. Port St. Joe
Citizen to do what he could to promote this area during the
coming year, that we would be calling on him so soon. But
calling on you, we are! To do what? Merely to write four
letters and say the same thing in all four just ad-
dress them to different people.
In this letter you are urgently requested to write, you
should ask that each of the addressees does all in his power
to secure the release of St. Joseph Peninsula (that part re-
quested for the park) from the Federal Government to the
Florida State Park Service for immediate park development.
Urge that this release be made immediately.
Please date your letter January 18, 1963, put it in an
envelope, but do not mail. Please leave the sealed envelope

Write your letters now and leave them at any one of
the above places. The need for this additional support is
urgent. Do not wait until the last minute, do it now. Do
your share to help obtain this park for Gulf County.
Several local people have worked long hours and spent a
good deal of their own money to bring this project about.
It is now almost a certainty, and we are assured that with
a strong show of public sentiment, the land will almost surely
be released to complete the project. Add your support to
the bettering of our area and county.

Now As Always Your
Help Is Needed To Seek Area Progress
On the surface of things, it would now seem almost cer-
tain that we will get the 2,000 acre state park on St. Joseph
Spit a park that will benefit local residents directly as
well as draw tourist traffic, with their free-flowing dollars,
to the Port St. Joe area. It is a chance to quit drooling over
the glowing reports of booming tourist business of other
areas in Florida and reap some of this good business our-
selves. It is the chance to get a first-class state park right
in our own back yard.
But all of this is not without a small amount of effort
on your part.
From talking with State Park Board officials, it seems
that they have secured the services of one of the best park
planners in the nation, Ray Venten, recently retired from
the National Park Service, to lay out the park. The Park
Service people are bubbling with excitement over the pros-
pects of St. Joseph Point like a child with a new toy. They
have an almost certain source of money to finance the pro-
ject. There will be an unfamiliar lack of having to wheedle
funds for the project. As a matter of fact, the Park Service.
is almost begging us to expedite our end of the deal.

going on Tuesday night. After it
was over, the Box Plant had knock-
ed Vitro from the league leader-

wo each. Pulp Mill applied the
pressure to Back Maintenance for
11 four points, and took over first
place in the process. The Labora-
ory kicked a helpless Paper Mill
or three and took over third place
n that process.

Vitro with a fine 559 series. Lee

Port St. Joe Volunteer Fire Depart-
Last Thursday afternoon, the
department put out a small grass
fire on Bellamy Circle. The fire was
apparently caused by burning
trash in the area and was quickly
Sunday morning at 4:00 a.m. the
Department had to go to Beacon
Hill where a house belonging to
Bill Carr of Port St. Joe was afire.
The house was unoccupied and
the fire was not discovered until
the house was beyond saving.
The fire department kept the
fire from spreading to adjoining
dwellings, however. The firemen
were at something of a disadvan-
tage, since the burning house was
just a few feet from Florida Pow-
er transmission lines carrying 7200
volts. These lines were engulfed
by the blaze and it was feared that
they would melt in two and cause
a danger to those fighting the
blaze. The wires held out, though,
and the danger was averted.
The Fire Department was called
to the home of Willie Tiller, 305
Avenue D about 6:00 p.m. Tues-
A mattress was on fire in the
home and was quickly put out by
