Rep. Ben Williams Tells Rotary Club
Of Tax Problems Faced by Legislature
Representative Ben C. Williams
told the Port St. Joe Rotary Club
last Thursday that he was interest-
ed in seeing Gulf county grow by
leaps and bounds and pledged him-
self to doing his best to achieve
this position for the County.
Williams said that along these
lines he has been able to get a re-
capping job for Highway 71 be-
tween Port St. Joe and Cypress
Creek. Preliminary work is already
underway by the SRD on this pro-

said he had received a commit-

In speaking of the legislative ses-
sion, Williams said that he voted
for an increase in the cigarette and
alcoholic beverage taxes. He sup-
ported the "across the board" sales
tax as the most equitable tax that
can be levied, and voted for the
sales tax bill as presented.
Williams said he voted against
the increase in automobile license
tag taxes. He said, "auto owners
are already paying 33% of taxes
collected in the state and I felt

Bob Sidwell Talks
To Kiwanis Club
Bob Sidwell, owner of radio sta-
tion WJOE was the speaker at the
regular meeting of the Kiwanis
Club Tuesday noon.
Sidwell listed some of the regu-
lar promotions that the station has
sponsored during its years on the
air and of the several services it
performs in the community.
The speaker said that perhaps
the most outstanding stride for-
ward made by the station was its
recent power increase to 1,000
watts and the assignment to a
clear channel by the FCC.
Sidwell said that the cover area
as outlined by FCC now extended
as far south as St. Petersburg and
North along the coast to Pensacola.
He said the station had been logged
inland as far as Blountstown.
Guests of the club were Bernie
Buzzett of Port St. Joe; Charles
Peaker, Jack Parker, John Dorrity,
Jack Soderquist, Gene Stewart,
Jack Pilcher, Larkin Poe and Car-
los Rowell, all of St. Andrew.
Guests of the club were Paul L.

The Board of County Commissioners has tentatively set up a budget which will re-
quire some $13,934.07 over last year to finance. But, while the amount of increase is
less than the value of one mill (approximately $15,000.00) the increase in millage has
been tentatively set at 3.3 for a total of 16.2 mills as against 12.9 mills for last year.

But, the trend of county budgets
in the past is to cut several items
in the overall budget to bring the
millage down. Millages have in-
creased this year due to a decrease
in other sources of income, thus
requiring tax money for financing.
The Fine and Forfeiture Fund,
for instance, which was set at 2.8
mills last year, will require a full
three mills to finance the same
amount of money raised to run this
department last year. This includes
the offices of the Sheriff and the
County Judge. Last year the Fund
had a carryover of $21,000. This
year, the cash carry-over is only
$6,000. Estimates of income from
fines and costs is virtually the
same as last year, creating a need
for additional tax money to offset
the decline in cash carryover.
The Road and Bridge Fund will
require the largest hike in tax mon-
ey on the basis of the proposed
budget, with an increase of 2.5
mills. Last year the Road and
Bridge Fund required 2.2 mills.
This year's millage has been ten-
tatively set at 4.9 mills. The Road
and Bridge Fund has asked for an
increase of $15.138 over last year.
This increase is mostly reflected
in a $500 per year increase in the
salary of the supervisor; $3,100 in-
crease in free labor; $8,000 hike
in maintenance of equipment and
$14,222 for new equipment which
was ?not included in last year's
The General Fund has been ten-
tatively increased to $221,679.00
as against $215,172.00 for last year.
Most of this increase was brought
about by a $2,500 increase in tra-
vel and per diem for county offi-
cers; a $3,000 increase in court-
house maintenance; inclusion of
$2,500.00 in the budget for employ-
ees insurance and several other
small items of increase.
The Fine and Forfeiture Fund
will remain the same as last year
at $80,240.00, according to the ten-
The County Board was scheduled
to discuss the budget at Tuesday
night's meeting, but due to the
absence of the County Attorney,
David Carl Gaskin and Chairman
of the Board, A. J. Strickland, dis-
cussion was postponed.
A special meeting has been set
by the Board for Tuesday, August
6 at 7:30 p.m., Port St. Joe time,
to discuss the new budget.

WHEN HUNGRY TEEN-AGERS sail home in the afternoon
their first port of call is the kitchen for a thrist-quencher and
a quick snack to keep them going until dinner time. Wise mothers
have taken to keeping a jar of instant tea on the pantry shelf all
year round to fill the orders for somethingg to drink." It's low
in calories and non-filling so-they can drink all they want without
spoiling their appetites for dinner. And because it's made with cold
tap water, the youngsters can make their own in seconds.

Annual Progress Report
"Super Right" Heavy
The 1963 Florida Legislature ap-
propriated $100,000.00 for the ac-
quisition of necessary Pensula ac-
reage and for the initial steps to
be undertaken in the developing of
the St. Joseph Peninsula Park.
2. The original railroad wheels
(see Florida Historical Qiuarterly,
Vol. XXXIX, January, 1961) of the
historic St. oJseph and Lake Wim-
ico (or lola) Railroad are now on
display at Constitution Park Mu-
seum after having undergone a
three year preservation process,
gratis, by the St. Joe Paper Com-
pany at the request of the St.
Joseph Historical Society.
3. In November of 1962 the Gulf
County Commissioners appointed
the Gulf County Historical Commis-
sion, long a dream of the St. Joseph
Historical Society and formed at
their request. The Gulf County
Commission appointed the follow-
ing members to this Commission:
Mrs. Ned S. Porter, Chairman; Mrs.
R. H. Brinson, Archivist; Dave
Gaskin, Archivist; Attorney Wil-
liam J. Rish, Legal Advisor; Clerk
of the Court, George Y. Core, Sec-
retary; Jesse V. Stone, Assistant
Secretary; Charles B. Smith, His-
torian and William H. Howell, Jr.,
4. This Historical Commission's
most outstanding accomplishment
to date has been the placing of a
commemorative historic marker at
the site of one of the cemeteries
of the old City of St. Joseph.- This
was achieved together with the co-
operation with the Florida Board
of Parks and Historic Memorials.
The embryo idea for this marker
had its beginning in the St. Joseph
Historical Society. Mrs. Hubert
Brinson, Secretary, was the chief
promoter of this early idea.
The ceremonial dedication took
place on April 4, 1963, on the high-
way adjoining the ancient cemetery
site. Jesse V. Stone served as mas-
ter of ceremonies and introduced
the various dignitaries and socie-
ties. Mrs. Ned S. Porter, author of
a book of Florida historical poems,
"Pasqua Florida", chairman of the
Gulf County Historical Commission
and past president of the St. Joseph
Historical Society, gave her origin-
a! address covering the known his-
tory of this unusual Memorial
The Gulf County Commissioners,
the Port St. Joe City Commission-
ers, the Gulf County Historical
Commission, the St. Joseph Histor-
ical Society and the Advisory
Council to Constitution Memorial
Commission, as well as many oth-
er guests were in attendance. The
Marker was presented by Ralph S.
Hager, Chief of Information and
Education of the Florida Park's
Board. Acceptance was made by
George Y. Core, Clerk of the Court
of Gulf County and secretary of

The following are the accom-

the St. oJseph Historical Society
covering the period from July 1,
1962, through June 30, 1963.
The St. Joseph Historical Society
is proud to report that five major
projects originating within its So-
ciety, over the past five years, have
reached accomplishment or near-
1. A proposed Sea Short Recrea-
tional-Historical State Park for the
St. Joseph Peninsula. This idea ori-
ginated with The St. Joseph Histor-
ical Society. The president, Mrs.
Ned Porter, having discovered the
Peninsula to have rare historical
significance, for that reason never
let the Society lose sight of its im-
portance from 1958 to 1963. Early
in 1963, Mrs. Porter, Chairman of
the Constitution Convention Histor-
ic Memorial Advisory Council, en-
listed the sponsorship of this Coun-
cil for the all-out promotion of the
idea for said Park. Jesse Stone,
member of the Council and Vice
President of the Society was ap-
pointed the Chairman of a special
Park Committee. Under his enthus-
iastic and tireless leadership a tre-
mendous amount of groundwork
was accomplished, by him, work-
ing through and with both organi-
zations. Numerous contacts were
made and much publicity and as-
sistance was given by the local
newspaper, The Star; and the local
radio station, WJOE; the Panama
City television station WJHG; the
Panama City News-Herald and also
by the Tallahassee Democrat. Our
Congressman, the Honorable Bob
Sikes; the Flrida Development
Commission, the Florida Park Ser-
vice, Governor Farris Bryant and

tive, the Honorable Luther Tucker

' Cause of the apparent fish popu-
lation decline in the Holmes has1
not been determined. But Washing-
ton County Commissioners have
asked that an investigation be
Hodges said pollution is usually
from one of three major sources,
or perhaps a combination of the
three. They are sewage, industrial
wastes and pollution by insecticides
or pesticides, including such chem-
icals as DDT.
Much sewage, it was noted from
the audience, now contains quan-
tities of detergents that do not dis-
integrate in the usual sewage treat-
ment processes and therefore enter
the streams deiluted but chemically
Pesticides, of course, wash down
into streams from the fields in
which they're used.
The Holmes, some observers not-
ed, would be subject to consider-
able pesticides and detergent-laden
sewage damage. Treated sewage
from Bonifay and untreated gar-
bage from Vernon, reportedly find
their way into the stream.
Because of an absence of big
industries, little industrial waste
finds its way into the stream. That
holds true, with a few exceptions,
for the Chipola, where wastes from
the Marianna area contaminate the
Effects Not Known
Hodges emphasized that the long
term effects of pesticides on plant
and animal life are not known
with exactness. He noted, however,
that residuals from DDT and relat-
ed pesticides have been found in
sharks and tuna caught thousands
of miles at sea.
He said marine biologists have
found that a small concentration
of pesticides of the DDT-type coulc
found to be polluted.
"Losing Our Streams"
Whisenhunt confirmed that "We
are losing our streams." He pre-
dicted that "fishing will be greatly
reduced in streams within three to
five years, unless some counter-
action is taken."
He said the Escambia River
would be the first to be "lost" and
the Apalachicola second. He said
the Choctawhatchee and others
are being "lost" gradually in pro-
portion to the amount they are
Whisenhunt cited stream dam-
age as a chief reason why fishing
attention is being concentrated on
landlocked bodies of water.
Hodges said pollution falls with-
in the jurisdiction of the State
Board of Health. Pollution that's
originating in Georgia is a prob-
lem of the U. S. Public Health Ser-
vice, he said.
Concern about the Holmes comes
at a time when funds have been
made available to start a program
of improvement. This will include
access points and launching facili-
ties and ultimately some stream
clearing and is expected to include
some management guidance.
Observers at the Marianna meet-
ing noted that some firm pollution
control steps would have to be
taken before any stream, regard
less of how spring-fed and clear ii
might seem, could be developed tc
its full recreational potential.
