"Port St. Joe-The Outlet Port for the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee Valley"
TWENTY-SIXTH YEAR PORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA, THURSDAY, AUGUST 22, 1963 NUMBER 49
By WESLEY R. RAMSEY
The County budget is all final-
Our millage has been sel, and it
reflects a little rise in millage.
The budget shows a small steady
rise in property values, which also
increases the amount of taxes paid
into county coffers each year.
As is usually the case, the draw-
ing up of and discussion of the
county budget this year, taught
most everybody something new in
reference to budgets.
This year's lesson was a rude
awakening for several people .
- even some of the county commis-
sioners learned this lesson for the
It is something that needs to be
-changed by legislative act.
We found out that the county
commissioners have no control at
all over the budget and expendi-
tares of the Sheriff's Department
and the County Judge's office. The
county Board cannot tamper with
their budget requests in any man-
ner without the consent of the
Sheriff and County Judge without
taking the matter to court.
Let us hasten to point out
that is not the fault of the Sher-
iff or County Judge. It is a state
We found out, too that the bud-
get that finances the Sheriff's of-
fice and County Judge's office-
the Fine and Forfeiture Fund-is
some $11,500 short on income. The
_possible sources of income for this
budget are limited by law. And af-
ter all legal sources of income have
been exhausted by the Commis-
sion, the fund is still $11,500 shy.
The budget MUST balance, so the
,Board had to include an $11,500
item of income from "misceltan-
eous sources". No inkling as: to
where the money is coming from
is known by the Commission-.--
And to top it all off, fees charge
ed by the County Judge do not
have to be included in the budget.
He can expend them as he sees fit
without the consent of the county
commission. Of course, he must ac-
count for these funds for the state
auditor, but no county control of
county funds is allowed by state
This situation should not be.
The county commission should
have control over county funds,
and it is. our opinion that local
legislation should be introduced to
provide this control.
The county board has expressed
a concern over this matter also,
and we hope they pursue the mat-
ter during the next session of the
David Lawrence said in his na-
tionally syndicated column the
"Certainly leaving aside all com-
-parisons, it is time more emphasis
is given to the question of immor
ality in governmental affairs.
"'For evidently many clergymen
to whom the public looks for mor-
al guidance are so busy these days
engaging in or encouraging others
to participate in street "demonstra-
tions" thht they don't seem to have
the time or inclinatoin to prepare
sermons on the subject of immoral-
ity in government.

that, so far as spending his money
is concerned, he too, should have
equal lights"--at least in an hon-
est and fa. disbursement of his

its franchise to the St. Joe Natur-

a motion by Commissioner Nedley
and a unanimous vote by the

The Board exercised this option
It was brought to the attention
of City Police this week that the
practice of driving automobiles
without mufflers in the city has
begun to grow especially
among the younger set.
Several complaints have been
filed with the city as a result
of this "noisy driving".
Chief of Police H. W. Griffin
and his crew has set out to
"stop noisy mufflers", as is the
law in Port St. Joe. An ordin-
ance on the books prohibits the
driving of autos with excessive-
ly noisy muflfers.
Chief Griffin urges that muf-
flers be put in use on all autos
before cases have to be made
against their owners.
The City Commission voted Tues-
day night to begin drawing up
specifications to let bids for the
purchase of two 750 GPM pumps
to install .at the City's water treat-
ment plant, on the St. Joe Paper
The need for the pumps was
made evident recently by a water
failure in the city. The old pumps
are 350 GPM pumps, but have
worn to the point where they are
not pumping this capacity. Even
so, it would take both pumps now
in operation to furnish water for
the city in summer months.
The old pumps are also limited
to capacity in the manner in
which water is extracted from the
canal-through a porous pipe in
the bottom of the canal.
The new pumps, of which two
pwms abe installed, each will take.
care, of the City's water needs.
Two pumps are being installed as
a safety factor.
The pumps will be installed on a
platform over the water canal and
lift water directly from the canal
and pipe it to the treatment plant.
Estimated cost of the two new
pumps and installation will be in
the neighborhood of $5,000.
More Filter Systems
The City of Port St. Joe .is out-
growing the present treatment fa-
cilities at the water plant. Al-
though the plant was designed to
provide twice its present output,
part of the components to make it
capable of such a load was not in-
cluded at the first construction.
The City Board is now consid-
ering having a survey made of
the plant and estimates for a new
filtering bed and treated water
storage tank at the plant. This will
approximately double the capacity
of the plant and make it capable
of supplying treated water to over
Although the plant is presently
taking care of the local load easily,
it is recommended that water
plants operate at no more than
50 percent of capacity. The Port
St. Joe plant is now operating as
high as 75 percent of capacity in
the summer months.

The publisher of a book which
is being widly advertised as con-
taining exclusive information and
"tips" on"How to get twice as
much social security," states that
his book has been cleared for ac-
curacy "with the highest legal
authority on the subject of Social
Security benefits claims."
This book, John V. Carey, social
security district manager, said to-
day, has not been cleared by the
Social Security Administration.
Carey said that the book, which
is offered for sale at prices rang-
ing from $1.99 to $5.00, contains
advice which if followed might
place a person in a worse rather
than a better financial position.
He said also that taking some of
the "tips" the book offers might
lead to extensive delay in the pay-
ment of social security benefits,
because all of the facts would have
to be investigated before social
security benefits could be paid.
"Responsible publishers of priv-
ately published books and pamph-
lets about social security," Carey
pointed out, "make sure that their
materials are technically accurate
and up to date. Also, they-do not
try to promote sales with adver-
tising materials indicating that the
information they offer is not avail-
ble elsewhere. Nor do they state or
imply that a person might lose mo-
ney by not buying the book they
offer for sale."
Carey advised anyone who has
a question as to the accuracy of a
privately published book about
social security to ask his social
security office about it. He em-
phasized that there are many re-
liable privately published books
about social security and the pub-
lishers of these books perform a
service to the public in helping
the Social Security Administration
to inform people about their rights
and responsibilities under the so-
cial security law.
The Social Security office for
this area is located at 1135 Harri-
son Avenue, Panama City, Florida,
