"Port St. Joe-The Outlet Port for the Apalachicola-Chaltahoochee Valley"
TWENTY-NINTH YEAR PORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA, 32456 THURSDAY, JUNE- r-1966 NUMBER 41
For Completion of
Water, Sewer Work
Commissioner Tom S. Coldewey
asked Clerk Charles Brock about
the status of construction on Port
St. Joe's new 300,000 gallon water
storage tank Tuesday night, noting
that he thought the construction
time was up and the work is not
yet completed. Coldewey especially
asked about the progress in repair
of streets that had been dug into
to lay some sewer lines, contract-
ed for in the project.
Clerk Brock informed Coldewey
and the rest of the Commission
that a 30-day extension had been
given Alpine Construction Com-
pany, to complete the job at no
penalty and with granting of the
extension, work on the project had
"come to screeching halt". Brock
noted to the Board that several
small items had not been complet-
ed or corrected as to advice of the
City's engineer, but that the pro-
ject was basically complete.
Mayor Hannon suggested that
the Board instruct Brock to inform
Alpine that if the work is not com-
pleted according to the contract,
the City will exercise the penalty
clause in the contract which will
cost the contractor $50.00 per day
on the water project and $30.00 per
day on the sewer project.
Brock said that the City still
owes Alpine about $11,000 on the
nrmniet and that he has stonDed

ams stated in his letter that his
office did not have custody of

Adams stated that the loss of

U. Thant has asked the U. S. to slacken up on its war effort in
Viet Nam as a condition to "talking about" peace.
Apparently Mr. Thant hasn't looked very close. A lot of peo-
ple in the U. S. are complaining now because the pace isn't fast
enough the effort so restrained.
,When you get a boy of draft age, and he gets his A-1 status,
you want to take such statements as Mr. Thant's and make him eat
them. It would gall us no end to have our boy drafted, sent to
Viet Nam and have him killed or wounded, knowing that the U. S.
wasn't expending every effort at its command to win the war and
get the soldiers back home to their civilian lives again.

PROPOSED NEW BARGE CANAL WOULD
HARM PORT OF PORT ST. JOE
It looks as if people are aiming at Port St. Joe from all
sides aow. First we have a few vengeful souls trying to
break up the company which provides us with a good living
and now, a small group is doing its best to put the seal of
doom on Port St. Joe's chances at becoming the ocean port
for the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint River system.
This system, which is rapidly nearing completion, is
.promising a substantial tonnage for some ocean port for
foreign shipments up and down the River.
Port St. Joe has even been designated as the most feas-
ible ocean port for the system by its leaders up the 3-River
system. This promises a shot in the arm in the future for
Port St. Joe. A substantial amount of tonnage is already
going up and down the river system by barge, and with com-
pletion of the system to Columbus, the tonnage will increase
going both ways.
But some people would change that.
A proposal is now in the making to dig a canal from
the upper end of the Chipola Cutoff, diagonally across Gulf
County and enter the present Intracoastal Canal at Wetappo
Creek. For all practical purposes, this would cut Port St.
Joe out of the 3-Rivers plan. All barge traffic would go
straight to Panama City. Why? Because Panama City
would be just as close as Port St. Joe and would eliminate
two turns to navigate. Barge tows don't like turns.
Such a canal would mean that in' order to come to Port
St. Joe, barges would have to continue with the old route,
-which in all likelihood would be too shallow to travel with
a new canal taking on part of the Apalachicola's waters,
or it would mean that barges would have to enter the Intra-
coastal at Wetappo Creek, do a sharp turn to the left, turn
again into the Gulf County Canal and on to Port St. Joe.
This would take quite a bit of maneuvering. Barges aren't
built for maneuvering.
Another real danger from such a canal is a very pos-
sible danger to the water supply to St. Joe Paper Company
and to the City of Port St. Joe. We all know what fresh
water means to the manufacture of paper. And we all
know what having good water for our personal needs means
to us. A diversion of enough water to fill a canal 125 feet
wide and 12 feet deep is sure to have some effect on the
streams below the proposed canal.
This proposed canal could have a third detrimental ef-
fect on this area also.
Diversion of this amount of fresh water could have a
disastrous effect on the oyster beds of Apalachicola Bay.
For this reason, the people of Apalachicola are upset about
the proposed new canal. An upset of the ratio between fresh
:and salt water in the Bay could spell finis on the oyster busi-
mess for Apalachicola.
Are such possibilities of harm worth it for a few to
make more money?
What good will come to Gulf County from such a canal?
We have discussed the possible harm, now what good can
come? About the most good we can see coming from such
a proposal would be to make the Port of Panama City bigger.
This will really help Gulf County won't it? This "help" to
Gulf County is probably the reason the Committee of 100 of
the Bay County-Panama City Chamber of Commerce is en-
dorsing the project. The second credit such a canal will
give to Gulf County is that the proposed canal would be
almost wholly on land owned by the Gulf Timberlands Com-
pany. This would make land abutting the canal more val-
uable and Gulf would get a few pennies more in taxes. But
not enough to offset the drain in economic revenue by de-
touring port activity from Port St. Joe to Panama City.
We believe we are already diverting more than our share
of money to Panama City, making that city grow, and that
we should now concentrate on making a few extra dollars
land here in this county and see if we can't grow and pros-
per as our Bay County neighbors have.
What we can't understand is why the ownership of
Gulf Timberlands supports the proposed canal. Upon many
occasions they have went to great lengths to express their
desire to do only what is good for Gulf County since "what
is good for Gulf County is good for Gulf Timberlands, and
vice versa". Their position on the proposed canal, we just
can't understand, in view of their statements concerning the
welfare of the county.
It will pay us, in hard dollars and cents, to keep a close
eye on the progress of this proposed project. It will take
many years to accomplish such a project, and herein lies
the danger. Over a period of time we can forget, become
lax, and by our laxness allow this canal to be constructed
which will surely harm our future.
You can rest assured that there is enough value there
to warrant the proponents to go through what they will
have to in order to accomplish such a project.

Carey Says Medicare Cards Will Be
Very Important To Those 65 and Over
When medicare goes into effect
July 1, medicare identification
cards will be very important to
anyone age 65 or older, according
to John V. Carey, District Mana-
ger of the Panama City Social Se-
This card shows the name of the
individual covered for medicare
benefits, his claim number, and
the extent of the coverage. The in-
formation shown on this card will
be needed when a chaim is filled
for doctors' benefits. It also should
be presented to the hospital when-
ever anyone covered under medi-
care is admitted to the hospital.
Apparently, many people do not
realize the importance of their
health insurance identification
card, Carey advised. Every day
some individuals return their iden-
tification card. This card should
not be sent back unless the local
Social Security office requests it.
If the card contains an error,
this should be reported to the So-
cial Security district office. How-
ever, the original identification
card is kept until a new card is
issued, Carey said. The medicare
identification card is your key to
Anyone thinking about canceling
his medicare coverage should dis-
cuss this with the Sociel Security
people first. No action should be
taken without knowing the full
effects and consequences. The dis-
trict office for this area is located
at 1135 Harrison Avenue, Panama
City. The telephone number is 763-

Philip Van Doren Stern
Since President Kennedy's as-
sassintaion is so fresh in our minds
it is interesting ti look back on
other presidential assassinations,
Lincoln's in particular. In many
ways the two cases are similar in
circumstances and conditions.
The story of John.Wilkes Booth's
career is one of a 'night of terror,
of the greatest man hunt in history
of a journey toward death and
everlasting disgrace. This book is
a new kind of history based on

had seen some evidence to this,
some time gathering fables, true
experiences and biological facts
about these playful animals. He

and the remarkable intelligence.
This book will fascinate and in-

Captain George Holland, operator of the par-
ty boat, Jep II, operating out of the Gulf County

was made.) The fishermen are Bob Whitney of
Belleville, Illinois, Dawson Wade of Granite, Illi-
nois and Ray Mohler of Memphis, Tennessee.
Holland's boat has been making consistently large
catches of snapper and grouper this spring.

Wayne Saunders, principal of
Port St. Joe HiPh School appeared
before the Board to discuss his de-
sire to resign as principal, effec-
tive June 30, 1966. Mr. Saunders in-
formed the Board that he wished
to accept a job as director of the

tulated Mr. Saunders on the fine

The Board discussed the antici-
pated enrollment of 175 students
in the seventh grade at Port St.
Joe High School for the school
year 1966-67. The Board decided
that the increase in the pupil pop-
ulation at Port St. Joe High School
would warrant two additional class-
rooms. The Board authorized a re-
solution requesting the State Board
of Education to authorize a change
in the project priority list for the
State Board of Education Bonds of
$225,000.00 issued to the Gulf

for the purpose of constructing
new facilities in the County. A

The Superintendent was author-
ized to contact Norman Gross, ar-
chitect and instruct him to begin
preliminary plans for these two

that the additional rooms should
be built to the specifications for

ent high school site will be con-
verted into an elementary school
when the anticipated construction
program is completed.
There being no further business,
the Board adjourned to meet again
in regular session on June 7, 1966
at 8:00 A.M., CST.

The Holy Spirit is the most mis-
understood person of the Bible.
He is called "it" as if He were not
a person but a thing. Some teach
that the Holy Spirit, Holy Ghost,
Holy Comforter are all different
persons when in reality these are
names of the third person of the
Not only do we have a great
misunderstanding of His person,
but also concerning His ministry.
We hear such erroneous teachings
as: 1. You can be saved without
the Holy Spirit, or at first, you
get just a part of Him. 2. God
threatens to take Him away if we
are not careful. 3. We can grieve
Him away. 4. He will leave us. All
such teachings are not true in the
light of scripture.
Many things are blamed on the
Holy Spirit which do God dishon-
or and bring ridicule on the name
of our Lord. All this is due to the
fact that some of our teachers of
today have lost sight of the truth
that God's word must always har-
monize when rightly understood.
It is a dangerous thing to take
one verse out of context and use
it without comparing it with the
whole of scripture. Paul well spoke
when he said: "Study to shew thy-
self approved unto God, a work-
man that needeth not to be asham-
ed, rightly dividing the word of
The purpose of the Holy Spirit is
to convict the unbeliever of the
sin of unbelief and lead him to
Christ. In the believer, the Holy
Spirit is his guide, team ber and
the power in the believer's life.
He also produces in the believer
a Christlike character which in the
Bible is called The Fruit of the
Spirit. We find this stated in Gala-
tians 5:22, 23: "But the fruit of
the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-
suffering, gentleness, goodness,
faith, meekness, temperance (self
control) against such there is no
Because of this misunderstand-
ing of the Holy Spirit, we shall
share in the weeks to come, Lord
willing, the ministry of the Holy
Spirit in the old testament, gos-
pels and epistles. The purpose of
our study is to bring our under-
standing in right relation with the
Word. By so doing we will honor
God, serve Him better, be a bet-
ter testimony, and enjoy our salva-
tion to its fullest.
