TWENTY-NINTH YEAR PORT ST.' JOE, FLORIDA, 32456THURSDAY, JUNE 30, 1966 NUMBER 42
Ambulance Service Assured By Aw-ho-
Port St. Joe Funeral Homes -, _
One of the most important news
stories in the newspaper today is
-the question of ambulance to be
offered to the public by funeral
homes. This has been the practice
over much of the state in the past,
especially in the smaller counties
where the funeral home doubles
as both ambulance and funeral di-
New laws have gone into effect
during the past few months that is
threatening the ambluance service

offered by funeral homes and even
The laws come from both the state
and from the federal government.
Effective July 1, federal law re-
quires that all ambluance drivers
and attendants receive the mini-
mum wage of $1.25 per hour. This
law in itself is the main factor to
several concerns throughout the
state curtailing their ambluance
service., Funeral homes in several
counties have served notice that
after July 1, they will no longer
offer ambluance service.
In Port St. Joe and Gulf coun-
ty, the two funeral homes in the
county have both stated that
they will continue to offer am-
bulance service. Both the Comfor
ter Funeral Home and Prevatt
Funeral Home state that they
have been qualified by the State
of Florida to operate an ambul-
ance service. They also state that
the new federal wage law will
not affect this service as they
do not now hire special attend-
ants to provide ambulance ser-

Port St. Joe will observe the
July Fourth holiday Monday with
most businesses in the City clos-
ing up for the day.
Some of the service stations will
be open as will all businesses on
the beach. Most beach rental pro-
perty is booked up solid for the
long week end, as is to be expect-

bulance which will prove costly to
small operations, but which both
operators say they will comply
with. The new state regulations
also require all ambulance attend-
ants to have a first aid certificate.
Several counties in the vicinity
of Gulf will not provide ambulance
service after tomorrow and have
notified the public of this fact.
The mouse that squeaked a few
weeks ago with the organizational
meeting at the St. Joe Little Thea-
tre is beginning to look like it may
be able to- roar. Plans are moving
rapidly forward for the forthcom-
ing presentation of the two-act
play, "The Mouse that Roared".
Even though the play is only two
acts; through the use of very clever
directing and settings, the play
runs from the Court of the Grand
Duchess of Grand Fenwick to the
laboratories of an atomic physi-
cist in New York, to the Office of
the U. S. Secretary of State and
back to the dungeons of the Castle
at Grand Fenwick.
Casting is complete on all the
leading roles, but opportunities
are still available for bit parts and
walk on roles. If you would like
to be on stage but not have to
speak any lines, here is your oppor-
tunity. No oscars guaranteed! The
Little Theatre group has become
a cross section of the Port St. Joe
area with the ages of those partici-
pating varying from 19 years old
to 64 years young. .
Anyone having talents in car-
pentry, painting, sewing, cosmetics
electrical work, art and various
other skills and "know how" will
be welcomed by the group.
If you're really getting tired of
watching the summer re-runs on
that television set every night,
come on out to the Centennial
building every Monday, Tuesday
and Thursday evening at 8:00 and
join a fun group.
There will be a called meeting
of the entire membership, mem-
bers of the cast as well as those
not in the cast this Thursday night
at 8:00 p.m. at the Centennial
Building. The St. Joe Little Thea-
tre wants you!
By WESLEY R. RAMSEY
It's a holiday over the nation and in Port St.
Joe Monday .
Joe Monday .
and with holidays comes a week of scratching the head for most
weekly newspaper editors. It seems that for a week before and a
week after a holiday, news comes to a screeching halt at least
the community newspaper-type news.
We took a day and a half off last week end along with
the rest of the Ramsey clan and took a belated Mother's Day
and Father's Day visitation trip to Georgia to see Frenchie's par-
ents. Up in Georgia. You know up in God's country. But
from the temperatures we experienced over the week end in the
aforsaid "God's country", we would say he has turned over opera-
tion of that precinct to someone else. For want of a better descrip-
tion, it was HOT.
For those of you who think the high river readings have been
manipulated. (and we confess, we were one of these) we have chang-
ed our mind. The people in Georgia, from whence comes our river
water, are complaining about the same thing. They are just as
anxious to wet a hook in a river, but they are all too high.
We had a conversation with our former employer in Fort Valley
Saturday morning, who is now a member of the Georgia Legislature
campaigning for a second term. He said he didn't know Mr. Ball
or our situation down here, but that he admired him for standing up
for what he believed to be right. In his words, "a decision as hand-
ed down by the Senate and House is quite a price to pay for believ-
ing in a principal."
But of such was our nation founded and made great.
Again the Highway Patrol warns of a record number expected
to be killed on the highways over the holidays. We see where one
group objects to such warnings. Says they are "too brutal" to
frighten the public like this. Maybe so. They're probably as bru-
tal as a funeral that comes up unexpected like .

Congressman Bob Sikes an-
nounced this week for himself and
Congressman Don Fuqua that the
Economic Development Adminis-
tration has authorized the State
of Florida to proceed with the
plans necessary to create a devel-
opment district that will include
the counties of Sikes' Congressional
District east of Walton County and
extend into the neighboring 9th
Congresisonal District. This is
made possible through the cooper-
ation of the Honorable Eugene Fo-
ley, Assistant Secretary of Com-
merce, who visited Northwest Flor-
ida a few weeks ago. The Develop-
ment District will actively seek to
stimulate economic development,
particularly in industrial areas.
A development center will be
established which will be eligible
for EDA grants up to 50 percent
and business loans at 4 % inter-
est. These grants and loans will be
used to finance those prospective
businesses that will tend to have
the Commission will be established
made up of representatives of lo-
cal governmental bodies and will
be charged with evolving a devel-
opment program that will assist
the entire development district.
Sikes said he had been advised
that EDA is prepared to contri-
bute 75% of the costs needed to
implement the district staff. This
will be in addition to the resour-
ces of the EDA office in Washing-
ton, which is furnished without-
Three Fined for
Smoke Bomb Prank
A smoke bomb thrown into a
vacant house on Bellamy Circle
Thursday afternoon of last week
caused a fire alarm to be turned
in. Volunteer firemen answering
the call, found the smoke bomb
and turned it over to local police.
Three young boys were found by
police to be the ones who tossed
the smoking mass into the house.
The boys were brought before City
Judge I. C. Nedley Monday night
and fined for their act.
City Clerk Charles Brock had
told the City Commission recently
that small acts of vandalism were
harrassing the City. The acts were
small in themselves, but added up
they were a nuisance and were
proving to be costly to the City.
Brock was specifically calling
attention to vandalism of City pro-
perty, but City Police were urged
to take steps to stop the acts in
This was the first step.
New Fish Licenses
TALLAHASSEE Florida wild-
life officers will begin a strict
check for fishing licenses on July
1, and if you plan to go fishing on
or after this date, be sure to have
the new 1966-67 license, otherwise
you may be subject to arrest for
fishing without a license.
According to 0. E. Frye, director
Game and Fresh Water Fish Com-
mission, the new licenses have been
on sale since June 15 and are being
honored by wildlife officers
throughout the state. The new li-
cense is valid until June 30, 1967,
and available at the office of all
County Judges or their license
Frye said, "Buying a fishing li-

to build a fishing reef off St. Joseph Peninsula. Construction of
the blocks was completed on Tuesday of this week after nearly
three years of planning and work by the Jaycees. Star photo
Jaycees Complete Construction of
Concrete Blocks for Fishing Reef
Steps Are Being Taken to Place Reef Blocks 'In the Gulf of Mexico
The Prot St. Joe Jaycee's project of
building a fishing reef off St. Joseph's
Peninsula took a step nearer completion
on Tuesday of this week as members of
the Jaycees took the forms from the last
of, the huge concrete blocks that will be
get in the bottom of the Gulf of Mex-
ico to attract snapper and grouper.
The Jaycees have now completed the
construction' of 105 large cement blocks
at a cost of about $20.00 per block to
complete this phase of the work.
The fishing reef project, initiated
nearly three years ago has been doggedly
pursued by the Jaycees all this time.
They have met with many set-backs in
having to get permission of different
bodies to place the reef in the Gulf. They
also had money problems-as a project
of this size is sure to have. As committee
member Hulon Mitcrell said, "some peo-
ple thought this project would never be
completed because of the large amount
of money and the work involved. But
this only made us more determined to
see it through."
All of the work in the project has
been performed by the Jaycees them-
The first problem was to invent a
form that could be used over and over in
making the hollow blocks. Project chair-
man, Jim Harrison, an engineer, and
Hulon Mitchell, with the help of other
Jaycees finally devised a form that they
could build economically and be used to
the end of the project.
Pouring of the blocks began last
September and the club members would
gather at the Sikes Concrete plant to
set forms and pour blocks each week.
They managed to pour from one to eight
blocks each week that the weather per-
mitted, all with club labor.
Chairman Jim Harrison said that
the Jaycees are now in the process of
making arrangements to transport the
blocks off-shore and place them in the
Claude Kirk, Candidate for Governor,
Will Visit In Port St. Joe Wednesday
The Honorable Claude Kirk,
Republican Nominee for Gov-
ernor of Florida will visit
this area in July.
Mr. Kirk will make his first
campaign visit to this area
Wednesday, July 6. His first
stop will be in Port St. Joe.
Kirk expects to meet with
his local steering committee
at 8:00 a.m. for an organiza-
tional meeting at 412 Reid
Avenue (the old drug store
building). At 8:30 coffee and
doughnuts will be served.
The general public and all
gulf County citizens are cor-
dially invited to stop in and
meet Mr. Kirk.
After the coffee hour, Kirk
will visit the businesses of
the city in order to personally
meet as many citizens as pos-
He will leave for Wewa-
hitchka and Panama City at
water to begin their designed duty of
attracting game fish. He said members of
the Salt Water Conservation Department
say there will be fish on the reef by
Chairman Harrison offered praise for
Jaycees Hulon Mitchell, John Howard,
Thurmon Jacobs and all of the Jaycees
who have worked on the project from
beginning to end.
ALL PAID FOR
Harrison said that the Jaycees have
paid for all materials used thus far in the
project. They received funds from var-
ious sources. Some $1,300.00 was donat-
ed by local people interested in the reef
and $1,900.00 was received from the state
of Florida. The Conservation Department
subsidizes such projects to enhance game
fish population along the Florida coasts.
Harrison stated however, that funds
were now low, and the Jaycees may have
to conduct a subscription drive to raise
more funds to defray expenses of haul
ing the blocks to the reef site.

"Thus aith The Lor morial Hospital.
By REV. BILL GRAHAM three persons of the Godhead are PHYLLIS KNIGHT
In beginning our study of the
Holy Spirit we must first realize
that the Holy Spirit is a person
not a 'thing' or an "it". "He" and
"Him" are the pronouns used when
referring to the Holy Spirit. He
(Holy Spirit) is the third person
of the Blessed Trinity. The Holy
Spirit is God, the Holy Spirit, the
same as the Father is God the
Father and Christ is God the Son.
No attempt is made here to prove
the reality of the Trinity.
The Bible declares there is one
God who exists in three persons:
therefore, I believe it. I can not
explain nor understand all this
blessed truth, yet my life is
changed because of a personal
relationship with the Three Per-
sons of the Trinity. therefore, I
accept it. No greater proof does
man need to establish a fact than
that the Bible declares it to be
present. The Son offered Himself,
willing, to the Father in the power
of the Eternal Spirit.
Notice in particular that the
Holy Spirit is here declared to be
eternal. Since God is the only one
who is eternal and here God's word
declares the Holy Spirit to be eter-
nal; .therefore the Holy Spirit is
God. We will pursue this first
point next week, Lord willing.
Notice now however the beauty
of it all. Is it any wonder that the
only requirement of God placed
on man to be saved is "believe on
the Lord Jesus Christ"? How fool-
ish of us to think that mere man
could add to or increase the value
of the work of Salvation done by
the blessed Trinity, The power
of the Holy Spirit, the death bur-
ial and resurrection of the Son,
and the acceptance of the Father.

TIME TO BE PROUD OF OUR COUNTRY
Monday is Independence Day.
Many of us Americans are not ashamed to express an
affection fofz and wave the flag of our nation. This is an-
other of those days when we all have a good excuse to be
proud of our nation without being labeled a "do gooder" or an
"exhibitionist" or a "sentimental patriot".
Who would have ever thought that a midnight ride by
a cooper would have resulted in the nation we live in today?
Do you think Paul Revere had any thoughts that the cause
of the rebellious colonists would be successful? Do you
imagine that the broadest use of his imagination could con-
jure up such a nation as we live in today because of the
100% effort of Americans of that day?
Dr. Paul DeBakey of Houston, Texas says that hardly
any of us put forth over half of our capabilities in our work,
our play, our creativity or any of life. Has this situation
evolved with Americans or has it been with us always?
Would we today put forth the effort to carve a new, free
nation for ourselves if we found ourselves in the same
situation as those Americans long ago? Would our effort
be the usual "half speed" as it is today, or would we be
energetic enough to "go all the way for freedom" even
to the point of leaving our television in the middle of the
night to warn our neighbors that an enemy is coming .
we, a society who will stand by and see innocent people
stabbed, raped, beaten in broad daylight, in front of wit-
nesses and never lift a hand.
When those among us scoff at those of us who are un-
ashamedly proud of our flag and of our country for 'being
idealists, we think it is time for we patriots to be proud.
For, despite the digging, the demonstrating, the low-rating
and the denial of our process of government, the system of
free government for free men is still with us is still
effective, in spite of the attempts at erosion by those who
do not appreciate what we have.
We never fail to marvel at the foresight of our found-
ing fathers. Their foresight, in most instances, was much
better than the best of hindsight today. Almost every
freedom that Americans hold dear is firmly protected by
Sthe Constitution and Bill of Rights and continues to pro-
tect the freedom of Americans, even from ourselves.
Russia has -said that she will wait for us to destroy
o-6rselves, and but for the Constitution and Bill of Rights
written by such men as Jefferson and Franklin, which stands
as a bulwark of man's freedom in this nation. we might
-well have destroyed ourselves years ago.
This is not to say that our system cannot be destroyed.
We cannot continue to sit by complacent that our heritage
will protect and keep us from all harm. There are powers
at work which would destroy all that we hold dear. And
they are working 100%.
But we believe that with observances such as Flag Day
just passed in the month of June and Independence Day
next Monday, it will keep alive our 50% effort at preserving
freedom and we can continue to live in the land of the free
and the home of the brave.
"PORK BARREL" ABOUT TO SPRING A LEAK
In the past few years we have disagreed at times with
County Commissioner Leo Kennedy. We thought we were
right and he was wrong at these times, which was the sole
reason for our disagreement.
The time has come when we wholeheartedly agree with
him on a matter, and we must say so.
Commissioner Kennedy has suggested to the County
-Board at nearly every meeting for the last several months
that the County should begin a bonding program for the
County's share of Secondary Road funds, on the premise
that the county faces loss of these funds by act of the Leg-
islature. After the happenings and statements that have
come out of the Legislative caucus in St. Augustine this
week, we think that Mr. Kennedy's suggestions =should be
given immediate attention.
We believed, and I'm sure others agreed, that Kennedy
had a good idea. But we figured we had plenty of time with-
out rushing into anything. The tone of the conversation re-
ported in the daily newspapers from St. Augustine this
week indicate that the time is short. The "pork barrel"
is just before being spiked by the large counties And
they consider the present division of the Secondary Road
Fund money as "pork barrel".
We believe the County Commission should begin im-
mediately with plans for a bond issue against the Secondary
Road Fund monies and even now it may be too late.

Have You Asked Yourself
These Questions? -
Why should you travel extra miles and use ul
extra hours to shop out of town?
ANSWER: You Shouldn't! You can save time,
gas and trouble by shopping right here in your
hometown stores. Furthermore, modern distribu-
tion brings the newest merchandise here as fast as
anywhere and lower overhead costs than in larger
places helps keep prices DOWN.
HOW can this community grow and prosper,
provide career opportunities for our young people,
unless hometown folks spend most of their money
here at home ?
ANSWER: It can't! Dollars spent away are gone
forever. Dollars spent here stimulate local trade
activity, finance business expansion and increase
Where is the money coming from to maintain
and improve our schools, civic services, our churches
hospital, and other community facilities?
ANSWER: Much of it must come from taxes paid
and contributions made by our local business peo-
ple. Part of every dollar you spend helps build a
better community for you.

glad to see that only two witnesses
from the entire State of Florida"
appeared before a Senate banking
subcommittee to support what Ball
termed "this punitive bill."
"Mayor Robert King High, whom
I assume was seeking to curry fa-
vor with the unions, testified be-
fore the committee," Ball said.
Held Personal Attack
At the hearings, High said he
knew of no abuses ralattd to the
estate's banking operations and
was accused by Sen. Wallace F.
Bennett, R-Utah, of making a per-
sonal attack on Ball.
"The other witness who was op-
posed to the duPont estate is Jo-
seph A. Maloney, publisher of the
Apalachicola Times, who was not
an entirely impartial witness as
he is suing one of the companies
in the estate," Ball added.
The breakup of the duPont es-
tate has been a congressional ob-
jective for at least two years, open-
ly pushed by railway union offi-
cials. The FEC has been struck
since January 1963.
"But for the strike on the FEC,
HR 7371 would never have been
introduced," Ball said.
He said the majority of the Sen-
ate present the day the bill passed
in the upper house "seemed to
want to curry favor with the union
"And the best evidence of their
being responsible for HR 7371, as
passed by the Senate, is a letter
from Mr. G. E. Leighty, chairman
of the Cooperating Railway Labor
Organizations, to members of rail-
way labor organizations in Virginia
dated May 26, 1966," he added.
Ball gave the Times-Union a
copy of the letter. It reads:
"I am writing you in behalf of
the candidacy of Sen. A. Willis
Robertson of Virginia. Sen. Rob-
ertson is chairman of the Senate
Committee on Banking and Cur-
rency and is a powerful member

mittee on Appropriations.
"In all of his years of service

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of

with hospital personnel and medi-
care assistants on proper proceed-
ures to follow under medicare. Doc-
tors have a vital role in the oper-
ation of medicare and they will be
reimbursed for their medical ser-
vices in one of two ways under
medical insurance. Medical assis-
tants in doctors' offices may com-
plete the billing from for their
patients or thty may give itemized
receipted bills to their patients.
Under the latter method, the pa-
tient will file his claim for medi-
care to pay doctors' bills with his
nearest Social Security Office. Doc-

where the services are rendered
Hospital insurance under medi-

any circumstances. Any payment

part of medicare must be made
to the hospital, skilled nursing

payments will be made under the
hospital part of medicare to an in-
stitution that is not participating
in medicare. If a patient enters
such a hospital he will be solely
responsible for paying his own bill.
The patient cannot claim reim-

Nearly all individuals 65 and

Individuals 65 and over who do
not have their medicare identifi-
cation card should contact their
nearest Social Security office. Also
if the information shown on the
medicare card is wrong, they
should see the Social Security of-

have been mailed to everyone who
received the pamphlet, "Your Med-

pieces of material, you should

As of Monday, June 27, 1966, all
hospitals except two in our seven
county district are expected to be
certified as participating under
medicare. Adams Hospital and Lis-

Tax Collector Harland Pridgeon
Speaks To Kiwanis Club Tuesday
Tax Collector Harland Pridgeon
spoke to the Port St. Joe Kiwanis
Club at their meeting Tuesday.
Pridgeon outlined the growth in
property values and tax program
since he took office in 1953 and
also outlined some of the duties
of the Tax Collector's office.
This year there will be many
four-year-old Americans ring-
" ing bells on July Fourth, who
will grow up believing that
this was always the custom.
Actually it was, from the first
Independence Day till about a
century .ago when the sounds
of peace were drowned out by
the noise of war, and the day
became celebrated only with
firecrackers and rockets.
Writing a book called The
Seasons of America Past a
few years ago, the author un-
earthed the story about In-
dependence Day bell-ringing,
and he -mentioned that "it
seems with firecrackers disap-
pearing we might well revive
that early American custom."
The idea quickly took hold
and, supported by organizations
and churches and newspapers,
it reached millions of people.
Ih 1963 it was passed in Wash-
ington as Senate Concurrent
Resolution 25, requesting that
all American bells, public and
private, church, school, fire,
college and town bells ring
simultaneously at 2 p.m. East-
.ern Daylight Time on July
Fourth. Some places now ring
bells for two minutes, others
for four minutes, along with
many radio, TV programs, and
even public loudspeakers in
It is the duty of the Tax-Collec-
tor to collect real estate and in-
tangible taxes in the county, to
sell auto and trailer tags, handle
boat registrations and collect sales
taxes on automobiles sold in the
Pridgeon stated that property
parks, race-tracks, ball games
and on ships at sea.
For the past three years the
"Bells on Independence Day"
project has been included in
Governors' Fourth of July
Proclamations, and this holi-
day which was losing much of
its solemn significance, was re-
kindled into a day of bells
ringing out America's birthday,
just as it was in the beginning.
It has been said that a thing
must be done four times be-
fare it becomes a habit, so this
fourth year, for the revival of
the early American custom of
ringing bells on Independence
Day, is a most important one.'
Perhaps there will be !o great
bells within reach of your
hearing, perhaps you will seem
to be the only one ringing a
small handbell; but you will
know that all over the nation
in every state, millions ofbells
will be ringing out the mes-'
sage of democracy and liberty.
A safer and less noisy pas-
time for children, let them
ring bells on this day, pro-
claiming it America's Birthday.
And wherever we are, let us
remember this greatest of
American days with joy and

the South Gulf County Savings
Bonds Committee made known this
week that purchases of U. S. Say-
ings Bonds in Florida during May
continued the upward surge that
started in March after President
Johnson announced a new higher
interest rate of 4.15% for them.
I Purchases in May amounted to
more than $9,000,000 and were 21
i percent greater than in the same
l month in 1965.
For the five months of 1966 to
May 31st, sales are more than se-
ven percent ahead of the same
period a year ago.
e"Florida has achieved 47.8% of
its year's quota of $88,800,000 in
the first five months and may well,
be headed for a new record for
the purchase of E and H Bonds.
The highest previous year's sale
occurred in 1963 and amounted to
$89,213,403. At the end of May that
year sales of $40,986,188 had been
recorded as against $42,457,085 for
the comparable months this year",
