Proposed County Budget




Raises Millage To 14.1


Slight Millage

Increase Shown

The Gulf County 'Commission
met in special session Tuesday
night in a five hour session to try
and pare the county budget down
to an acceptable figure.
And quite a bit of paring is to
be done.
The proposed draft of the new
budget would have required an
estimated 16.2 mills to finance as
against a millage rate of 12.9 for
last year. To bring the budget in
line with last year's village rate,
some $60,000.00 had 'to be lopped
off some where.
A start was made Tuesday night
by getting rid of $16,225.00 from
the various accounts in the budget.
The Road and Bridge fund drew
the largest cut Tuesday by a fig-
ure of $8,000.00. This brings the
road budget down to an estimated
total of $192,195 as against $188,-
608 for last year.
Only two sizeable increases exist
now in the road and bridge budget.
These are $3,000 more for labor
and $2,000 more for rights of way.
A new item-new equipment-was
placed in the budget this year. This
item calls for an expenditure of
$13,222, $10,222 of which was spent
last year for a piece of road build-
ing machinery tb be paid for out
of this year's budget. A reduction
of $8,000 in Maintenance of Equip-
ment helped to offset the raises
elsewhere.
The General Fund took a $7,225
reduction Tuesday night, to bring
this budget down to $190,212. No
large cuts were tnade in any speci-
fic item, with over half of the 80-
odd items being cut from $250 to
$2,500.
BUDGET DEFICIT
The Fine and Forfeiture Fund
budget faces a deficit, unless the
County Board can work something
out before the budget is finalized.
This budget is going to require
some $80,000 to operate, with al-
most every fund set by law. What
funds are not set by law cannot
be reduced by the Commission
without the consent of the County
Judge or the Sheriff, whose offices
are covered by this budget.
The law provides for a limit of
three mills to be levied for this
department. Three mills is expect-
ed to bring in $45,000 this year.
The Sheriff has turned $4,000 back
that he did not use the year before.
Fines and costs brought in $17,500.
This leaves $11,646 to be raised to

balance the budget.
While being specific on who has
control over the budget, the law
is just as strict on what moneys
may be put into this fund. The
county has no other source of in-
come that may lawfully be placed
in this budget.


A representative of Layne Cen-
tral, a water well concern suggest-
ed to the City Commission Tuesday
night, three routes they could take
to improve the city's water supply.
Of late, the City Commission has
become concerned because of the
load trat is being placed on the
treatment and pumping facilities.
The water pumping and purify
ing station is working at 85% of
capacity to keep up with demands
during the hot summer months.
From 50% to 60% of operating ca-
pacity is considered ideal condi-
tions for plant operations.
Layne Central suggested that the
city could expand the present sur-
face treatment plant to allow for
a greater volume of treatment of
water or it could utilize
the use of shallow wells or .
deep wells could be dug to supply
an adequate water supply.
The wells would give the city a
more economical supply of water
and more economical treatment
methods. But well water would not
have the palatable taste now en
joyed by Port St. Joe citizens. The
well water could be treated for
softness and iron content, but the
taste would still be there.
City fathers seemed to have the
opinion that the citizens would ra-
ther have their present water at
the present higher cost than save
a few cents on the thousand gal-
lons and go back to the bad tast-


The only other source of income
is that of fees collected by the
Judge's office in fees for licenses,
etc. These funds are spent by the
Judge for the operation of his of-
fice at the discretion of the Judge.
The only control over these funds
by law, is that control exercised
by the State Auditor.
L. S. Bissett asked the county
to begin taking steps to get a lo-
cal bill passed giving the Board
control over these funds so that
they may include them in future
budgets.
Bissett questioned the board on
several items in the budget and
asked for a shuffling of funds and
reductions in various funds to al-
low for a further reduction in
village.
Tuesday's session brought the
nrillage down to approximately 15
millage down to 14.1, which is still
1.2 mills over last year's budget.
PUBLIC MEETING
The Board will meet in special
session on Friday night, August 16
at 6:30 p.m., CST for the purpose
of holding a public hearing on the
new budget.
Any citizen of Gulf County may
attend the meeting to discuss the
budget.

population of old St. Joseph. His-
torians have been hampered in
their efforts to determine the exact
figure due to the destruction of
th 1840 census records for Calhoun
County. The 1850 census records
are available, however at this time
the depopulation of the ill-fated
city had taken place. Estimates on
the population range from 4,000
to 16,000.
Mrs. R. H. Brinson reported that
the Society's activities for the year
had been sent to the Florida His-
torical Society and would appear
in the October issue of The Florida
Historical Quarterly.
J. B. Williams was acecepted as
a member of the Society replacing
Mrs. R. H. Majors who requested
to be placed on associate member
status,
Mrs. Ned S. Porter reported on
the proposed historical marker to
be erected on the grounds of the
Centennial Building commemorat-
ing the 100th year of the signing
of Florida's first Constitution.
Charles B. Smith was appointed
by the president to locate and doc-
ument the Salt Works on St. Jo-
seph Bay used during the War Be-
tween the States. Upon its location,
steps will be taken to mark this
site. Eight members were present
at the meeting.

By HERVEY SHARPE
Fla. Agricultural Extension Serv. Disability payments can
Pines are like people-you can paid until after six full
hurt their feelings by stepping on
their "toes".
Since pines can't talk they suf-
fer in silence and often die without
hinting that you crushed a vital or-
gan.
Four stakes enclosing tiny pines
in a safety zone is one way of pro-
tecting the future shade trees. This
will keep you from inching and
whirring lawn mower the last fa
tal inch trying to cut the last sprig
of grass.
Carefully removing a ring of sod
around all trees and replacing the
turf with an inch lawyer of white
gravel, or sea shell, will prevent
shaggy looking grass from cling- '
ing to tree trunks and will give
your. yard a dressed up Sunday
look seven days a week.
The gravel will serve another
purpose. Instead of barking the
shins of the trees with the lawn
mower you will get your shins
barked by flying gravel if you push
the mower into the gravel pit.
This built-in protection will save
many bleeding trees if you isre
the grass cut by someone who is
more interested in money than
trees.
Propagation
Some folks claim they don't have
good luck in rooting plants. Now
is the time to prove that they are
wrong. Check around your yard
and you'll discover that you have
propagated a number of plants
without half trying.
Check around the azaleas. If in
a weak moment you "hid", a brick
by tossing it into the clump of aza-
leas you may have rooted a plant.
The brick in holding a branch of
the plant in contact with moist
soil has likely caused roots to
form,
Either you-or Fido-scratching
dirt or mulch on the lower limbs
of a number of plants will result
in plant propagation. Digging
around plants-such as the crepe
myrtle-will cause the roots you
cut to send up a plant.
Around hedges are good places NEW
to look for propagation accidents. NEW I

ing case. Almost any wooden box
cr km n-high legs will take the
stoop out of the chore.
Construct the case at least eight
inches deep. Fill with five inches
of rooting medium, leaving head
room for leafy tips of the cuttings.
Rooting media are ple-ntiful.
Sand is the most widely used in
cutting cases. Other materials in.
elude vermiculite, peat moss, pea-
nut hulls and sawdust.
For your rooting project select .,.
softwood tips three or four inches
long. Trim the cutting, leaving the
upper two or three leaves intact.
Next, insert the cuttings into the
rooting medium. After flooding in,
cover the case with glass, cheese-
cloth or clear plastic. Keep the
cuttings damp with daily mist like
sprays on the leaves. (0At0
Tf you use plastic or glass cover,
be sure the cutting project is lo- -
cated in the shade, otherwise you r
will stew the plants instead of root
them.

Disabled Workers
Losing SS Benifits Homo


Disabled workers who have not
filed claims may be losing month-
ly Social Security payments ac-
cording to John V. Carey, Socia',
Security District Manager in Pan-
ama City. The disabled worker's
family may also be losing pay-
me nts.
Extra Social Security work cre-
dits are required for disability ben-
efits, Carey added. A worker retir-
ing this year might need as little
as three years work credit for re-
tirement benefits. However, a
worker always needs at least five
years work credit for disability
payments. These five years of work
credits must have been earned in
the 10 year period just before he
was disabled.
Seriously disabled workers who
meet these work requirements
should file a claim. The disability
must prevent any kind of work.

City Auditor and Clerk, Jack Wil-
liams spoke to the Rotary Club last Panama City and Turner Davis
Thursday, telling them of his stay Griffin, Ga.
in Liberia. Williams spent several "
years in the North African nation To Attend Senior Assembly
as an accountant for the Firestone To A


Tire and Rubber Co.
SThe nation of Liberia was the
first all Negro colony in Africa,
having gained its independence in
1847. Williams said that only citi-
zens can own property and only
members of the Negro race are ac-
cepted as citizens.
Firestone was the first foreign
company to come into Liberia, and
they raise rubber on several large
rubber plantations in the country
which the company has under
lease from the government.
Williams stated that prior to
Firestone coming to the nation, the
school system was practically non-
existant and hospital facilities
were even worse. He stated that as
a contrast, however, public build-
ings are a showplace for the coun-
try.
Rainfall in the country averages
about 200 inches per year in the
coastal region and 70 inches per
year in the interior. '-'--'-
Iron ore in the country is plet-"
ful. The roads are made 'from a
mixture of iron ore and clay. Ter-
mites are so plentiful in the coun-
try that they even eat the iron ore
in the streets, creating great pot-
holes to form in the roads.
Meat is very scarce in the diet
of the natives and they eat any-
thing that will give them protein
in their diet. even the termites.
Guests of the club were Ammon
McClellan of Okeechobee, Jimmy
Greer and Wayne Saunders, both
of Port St. Joe.

Kiwanis Hear Road
Safety Program
Sergeant Jansen of the Florida
Highway Patrol brought a thought-
provoking talk on the unconcern
of the public toward automobile ac-
cidents to the Kiwanis Club Tues-
day at noon.
Sgt. Jansen said that in these
days, people get up in arms over
a wilful murder or wrong of one
person toward another, but we
tend to take as "matter of fact"
the thousands killed on the high-
ways each year. "That person is
just as dead who has been killed
on the highways, as the one killed
with a gun", the speaker said.
Sgt. Jansen reported that as of
4:00 p.m. Monday afternoon, 803
persons have met death on Florida
highways thus far this year. Three
of these have been in Gulf County.
For each person killed, it costs
Florida citizens an average of $170,-
000. In addition, there were 43,976
injured, some permanently, on
Florida highways last year.
The traffic death toll last year
in the State, cost each citizen di-
rectly or indirectly, $35.00.
Sgt. Jansen said that if the pres-
ent trend is followed, there will be
60,000 people injured on Florida
highways each year.
"Nobody intends to have an auto
accident", said Sgt. Jansen, "but
if everyone would look himself in
the mirror each morning and say,
'I could be Florida's next traffic
fatality', the traffic accident rate
would be greatly decreased, be-
cause the main contributor to these
accidents is a lack of concern."
Guests of the club were Alan
Stone of Monticello, Bill Spikes of
.spalachicola, Wayne Saunders of


Celia Creech left Monday for
Montgomery, Ala., to attend Senior
Assembly at Huntington College
representing the First Methodist
Church of Port St. Joe.

July Sales Tax

Shows Increase
TALLAHASSEE-J. Ed Straughn
Director of the Florida Revenue
Commission, this week said July
sales tax collections based on June
business totaled $16,092,727, an in-
crease of 6.87 per cent, or $1,035,-
646 voer July of last year.
Straughn explained that the col-
lections will go into general reve
nue for the fiscal year 1963-64 and
are the last collections to be made
under the old provisions of the
sales tax law. I
"We have now moved under the
provisions of the expanded sales'
tax law," Straughn said, "and Au-
gust collections will provide the
first evidence as to whether reve-
nue producing estimates of the ex-
panded tax coverage will come
true.
"However, it is doubtful that we
will be able to get a definite indi-
cation of the revenue producing
abilities of the expanded taxes be-
fore three months and perhaps
even six months. It must be re-
membered that seasonal conditions
play an important role in revenue
produced by the sales tax, and even
these do not follow a set pattern.
The only exceptions would be dur-
ing the summer and the third quar-
ter of the fiscal year which covers
the peak winter tourist business."
Straughn said reports of a good
tourist season appear to be re-
flected in June business, and that
sales tax collections based on a
calendar year, which begins with
January, totaled $119,184,444, up
4.30 per cent or $4,913,660 over the
same period last year.
