The Port St. Joe Rotary Club
was presented an interesting pro-
gram last Thursday by Tom Thomp-
son, executive assistant with the
Florida Power Corporation.
Thompson gave the Rotarians a
short view of the vast system op-
erpted by Florida Power to serve
better than a third of the state
of Florida with electric power.
Their, lines .,trqtcl~ #_om Avon
Park, south of Tampa, to Port St.
Joe, along the Gulf Coast of Flor-
"The main problem with provid-
ng electric energy," said Thomp-
son, "is the fact that you cannot
store it. It must be made as it is
used." This makes heavy demands
upon the utility to provide facili-
ties capable of generating up to
450,000 KH 24 hours a day, seven
days a week.
Florida Power has recently tap-
ped into a cooperative of investor-
owned power companies through-
out the United States, who depend
upon each other to maintain a con-
stant source of power. The band of
interconnected power companies
stretches from here to the Cana-
dian border. If one company exper-
iences a failure on his lines, he
gets power from a sister company
until his difficulties are corrected
Thompson said that Florida
Power corporation now serves 804,-
000 customers. The utility is rapid-
ly becoming one of the most mo-
dern and efficiently operated pow-
er companies in the state.
All employes of the company are
trained in first aid and especially
mouth to mouth respiration and
external heart massage both for
use on injured employees and to
the general public.
Thompson said that 49 per cent
of the utilities' income comes
from residential users; 27% from
commercial users and 15% from
Out of every dollar of income,
24c goes for taxes; 18c for fuel; 19c
for interest and dividends; lie for
property replacement; 15c for pay-
roll; 6c for material and supplies
and 7c retained in the business.
Guests of the club were Bill Buz-

Port St. Joe was dangerously
low on water Monday of this week
when a 42" line serving the St.
Joe Paper Company and the City
of Port St. Joe burst at the SJPC
pump house late Saturday after-
noon, according to City Auditor and
Clerk J. B. Williams.
Williams said that Port St. Joe's
shortage came because of failure
of emergency pumping facilities at
the City's pumping station on the
Paper Company's canal.
The City receives its water from
the SJPC pump house, but has an
auxiliary pumping station to pump
water directly from the canal. This
auxiliary system had broken iown
previously and was under a state
of repair when the break in the big
Saturday night, the City', old
water pumps were put into action
to help out with the meager water
supply the City was able to pump
from its canal source. One of the
City's two deep wells burned out a
motor when it was turned on and
this put a further strain on the
By Monday morning, water; con-
sumption began to tell on the
small supply, and the resulting
drain on the system kept the water
supply in the city at a trickle or a
standstill for the greater part of
By Monday afternoon a tempor-
ary line was laid from the SJPC
pump house to the City's pumping
station, which along with the one
producing well aleviated the wa-
ter shortage. By Tuesday morn-
ing at 1:00 a.m. a larger line was
put into operation and the well
was shut down.

The City furnished part of its
meagre supply into the two plants
by late Monday. The Glidden com-
pany also aided in the emergency
by diverting water from two deep
wells they maintain for fire-fight-
ing purposes into city mains.
Crews working around the clock
were expected to have the large
main repaired by late Tuesday eve-
ning (when The Star went to
press) or early Wednesday morn-
Clerk Williams said that the City
Commission was due to discuss re-
pairs to the water pumping station
and new installation to make such
an occurrence in the future negli-
gible. The details of this meeting
cannot be reported in this issue
because of the early press date.
The City of Port St. Joe is now
a half century old. The new City

The new Zone Improvement Plan (ZIP) of the Post Office
Department went into effect here and throughout the nation

The Port St. Joe ZIP code number is 32456, designating
the locality of the Port St. Joe postoffice to any area of the
Postmaster Chauncey Costin, urged all post office patrons
to begin immediately including their code number in their
return address. The number is to be placed after the state

first numeral, 3, designates the postal service area, the second
and third numerals, 2 and 4, specifies the service area sub-
division, Northern Florida; and the fourth and fifth numerals,
5 and 6, identifies the Port St. Joe Post Office.
The ZIP code numerals have been placed in operation to
facilitate the mechanical sorting of mail, since the numbers
method of addressing can be more readily adapted to mechani-
cal code handling than can letters-or reading of written ad-
dresses. With the handling of mail by machines for routing,
ZIP codes will be necessary in every addressed piece of mail.
The postmaster also urged that where ZIP code numbers
of your correspondents are known, that these numbers be
used in addressing mail outside the city.

lating the cleaning of outdoor

3 County Commission
June 25, 1963
The Board of County Commis-
sioners of Gulf County, Florida
met this date in regular session
with the following members pres-
ent: A. J. Strickland, Chairman,
Leo Kennedy, S. C. Player, Walter
Graham ana James G. McDaniel.
The Clerk, Sheriff, Attorney, En-
gineer, Road Superintendent, Mos-
quito Control Supervisor and Civil
Defense Director were also present.
The meeting came to order at
6:30 p.m. The Clerk opened the
meeting with prayer.
B. Roy Gibson, General Man-
ager, St. Joseph's Telephone & Tel-
egraph Company, appeared before
the Board and discussed the pro-
posed utilities right of way regu-
lations. B. A. Pridgeon, Jr., Com-
mercial Manager for said Company
presented a letter setting out said
Company's comments and recom-
mendations as to rights of way for
utilities on county streets and
roads. After discussing this mat-
ter, the Board thanked Mr. Gibson
and Mr. Pridgeon and assured them
that their recommendations would
be considered before the Board
adopts a policy effecting utilities-
rights of way.
Darrell Butler appeared before
the Board and presented a petition
signed by Herring's Bar, Lister's
Court, Jack Prince, The Wonder
Bar, Club 98 and W. E. Butler, re-
questing the Board to adopt a re-
solution extending the legal hours
for the sale of alcoholic beverages.
Mr. Butler then explained that Bay
and Franklin Counties have extend-
ed the hours of sale, thereby creat-
ing a hardship on Gulf County
businesses engaged in selling alco-
holic beverages. Commissioner Ken-
nedy announced that he was op-
posed to this request. Commission-
er Graham then said he would have
to vote against extending the hours
because of his faith in God; that
it is against the laws of his church;
and against his personal beliefs.
The Chairman said that he realizes
that Bay and Franklin Counties
have longer hours of sale and that
this could be a hardship on the
dealers in Gulf County; that in
view of this, he thought it would
be better for the County and those
making this request if the hours
were not extended and then said
he could not support the petition.
Commissioner Player said that he
fully realizes the problem facing
the petitioners but in his opinion
everyone involved will be better
off if no changes were made. Mr.
Butler then stated that in view of
the fact that a majority of the
Board had expressed an opinion
as opposing his request, requested
to withdraw his petition. The peti-
tion was returned to Mr. Butler.
The Clerk informed that Board
that a representative of the Neal
Lumber and Manufacturing Com-
pany informed him that the couh-
ty has not made the proper arrange-
ments to use certain lands owned i
by said Company; that the Com-
pany wanted to help the county in
making available the necessary I
lands to be used as a garbage dis- i
posal area, but that the county has
moved over on company land with-
out an agreement and that the (
county has allowed the State Roadi
Department to remove clay from
this property; after discussion, the v
Chairman announced that mem-
bers-of-the Board will meet with
. LT. Parker of said company at
1:3U p.m., June 2'1 to discuss this
Dr. Willa Dean Lowery, Director,
Guit County Health department,
appeared Deiore ne Board and in-
formed the Commissioners that
the provisions contained in the
agreement discussed at a previous
meeting with members of this
Board will be carried out by me
ieaitf Department personnel; that
the netire Health Department staft
has agreed to wor min harmony to
bring Gulf County the very oest
program possible. The Dr. said
that her budget for the next fiscal
year would be mailed to the Board
within a few days.
Ma xW. Kilbourn informed the
Board that the State Legislature
passed a law House Bill No. 876)
prohibiting Gulf County from pay-
ing a retainer fee for a county en-
gineer; that this bill was effective
on June 18, 1963. He then request-
ed the County to clarify his posi-
tion with the County as it may be
in jeopardy. The Chairman asked
the attorney to advise the board
as to this new law and asked if
the County could continue the ser-
vices of Mr. Kilbourn. The attorney
advised that the key word used in
the new law was the word "retain-
er"; that in his opinion the county
cannot retain an engineer, nor pay
a retainer fee to an engineer, but
that the County can employ Mr.
Kilbourn, pay him a salary and
specify his duties; that he would
then be an employee of the county
and would not be retained as an
engineer. After considering this
matter for more than an hour,
Commissioner Graham moved to
employ Max W. Kilbourn at a sal-
ary of $150.00 per month, retroac-
tive to June 18, 1963, to perform
the following duties: 1. Examine
all plats to determine that all phy-
sical requirements of the plat
laws have been complied with; 2.
establish that the rights of way
monuments are in place; 3. Inspect
all county street and road construc-
tion and drainage problems; 5. At-
tend all Board meetings, unless ex-
cused, and; 6. To perform any oth-
er duty that may be directed by
the Board. This motion seconded by
Commissioner Player and upon
vote the following voted: AYE:
Graham, Player, Kennedy and the
chairman. NAY: McDaniel. The
Chairman announced that Mr. Max
W. Kilbourn is employed by the
Board of County Commissioners as
per above motion.
The Florida Engineering Assoc-
iates, Inc., presented the plans and
profile for the Lester Subdivision
Streets and the Harden Dairy Road.
Upon motion by Commissioner Gra-
ham, seconded by Commissioner
McDaniel and unanimously carried,
the Board approved said plans for
C. E. Daniell, Mosquito Control
Supervisor presented his tentative
budget for the next fiscal year and
explained each item of expendi-
ture. After consideration and upon
motion by Commissioner Kennedy,
seconded by Commissioner Graham
and duly carried, the Board tenta-
ively approved said budget call-
ng for a county appropriation of
The Board did then discuss all
theirr budgets for the 1963-64 year
with no official action taken.
The Clerk was instructed to ad-
vance Yolanda Strange $15.00 from
County Indigent Funds.
There being no further business
the meeting did then adjourn.

End Of July
Quarterly Social Security tax re-
turns must be filed with the Dis-
trict Director of Internal Revenue
by the end of July for the previous
three months, John V. Carey, So-
cial Security Administration Dis-
trict Manager in Panama City, re-
minded employers this week. Work-
ers do not have a choice as to whe-
ther or not Social Security reports
are to be made. Any employer who
fails to report the Social Security
earnings because a worker does
not want them reported will prob-
ably wind up paying the total So-
cial Security tax, 7%1 per cent, to
the Internal Revenue Service.
It is important that Social Se-
curity tax returns be filed on time
and that they be complete. They
must show the correct amount of
earnings paid each worker during
the quarter and his correct name
and Social Security number. Oth-
erwise, the worker and his family
may not be fully protected in the
event of the worker's disability,
retirement, or death.
Earnings of employees of a trade
or business must be reported each
quarter regardless of the amount
of wages paid. Cash wages of do-
mestic employees and other house-
hold workers must be reported by
each employer who pays cash
wages of $50 or more to an employ-
ee during the calendar quarter.
(Farm workers are to be reported
once a year in January for the pre-
ceeding calendar year).
Employers who have questions
about their quarterly Social Secur-
ity reports or have need for tax
reporting forms, should get in
touch with their Internal Revenue
Service office. Questions regarding
Social Security benefits or other
information on Social Security
should be directed to the nearest

In warm soil zinnia seed germin-
ate within a few days and produce
an easily identifiable seeding that
most likely outgrows the weeds.
However, for fastest flower growth
be sure to pull out the weeds
promptly as they are a hog for
water and plant food.
When zinnia seedlings send
forth their first true leaves, thin
them to stand 8 to 10 inches apart
for the small flowered varieties
and a full 18 inches for the giant.
Delayed thinning will result in
stunted growth and few flowers.
To overcome the horrors of wast-
ing the plants that are thinned,
try planting the seeds about twice
too thick only on half of the seeded
and transplant the thinned plants
to fill the entire bed. This is good
garden psychology. Oft e n the
transplants thrive better and pro
duce flowers quicker than the
If you can't bring yourself to
thinning, then it is likely the plants
will grow spindly-tall and will fall
over when decked out with a giant-,
size blossom. If you find yourself
in this predicament then give the
plants something to lean upon.
Green twine attached to green
stakes and strung two-thirds the
height of the plants will help the
flowering plants to stand up and
wave their blossoms skywards.
Space the twine so as to form 6-
inch squares. If you have only a
few spindly plants perhaps it will
be easier to stake each plant and
omit the maze of string.
Inspect the zinnia bed each after-
noon. If there is the slightest sign
of drooping leaves, flood the soil
wetting it well below the last root
of the plants. Don't sprinkle the
leaves of the plant, because you
are inviting trouble from mildew.
If this disease shows up apply
either a sulfur dust or a neutral
For more blossoms, pinch out
the bud of each zinnia plant just
before you think the plant is about
to set a single flower bud. This may
delay flowering a few days, but it
will cause the plant to send up two
or more flowers and add a massive
bank of blossoms rater than a sin-
gle color head.

Giant and Super Giant are eye-

Zinnias are easy to grow. The
main essentials are hot weather
and sunshine. So, select a sunny
spot for the flower bed. Next,
loosen the soil with a spade to a
depth of 12 inches or more. During
Ihe process be sure to remove
invading tree roots from the bed
site. These intruders will give you
grief later by robbing the flowers
of plant food and water, plus
