Seal TakesUp Residence in Bay
A 200-pound seal was seen off Port St. Joe in the Gulf of Mex-
ico Sunday by a charter boat captain and" his guests.
Edward F. Austen, captain of the'boat "Mama Nez" of Mexico
Beach and Murry Byrd of Birmingham, Ala., and Walter Gill of
Oklahoma City, Okla., fishermen aboard the craft reported sighting
the seal on a buoy near the entrance to St. Joseph Bay channel.
Austen said his sanity has been questioned by so many that he
would likeao offer the above picture as evidence that a seal has,
ind6ed, taken up residence on a buoy near here. In the picture
above the seal is on the left side of the buoy float in the act of

School Board Tries Another
Offer For Niles Road Site
The Gulf County School Board
has made another offer for proper-
ty on Niles Road near the Port St
Joe City Limits on which to con
struct a new Port St. Joe High
School. The offer was made after
a series of talks between the Boarc
and the St. Joseph Land and De
velopment Company during the
past 10 days.
The Board, in making its of-
fer, also asked for an additional
17.3 acres of land to be includ-
ed in the transaction. The new
parcel of land requested lies be-
tween the present football sta-
dium and Niles Road.
The Board has been negotiat-
ing for 35 acres of land just
across Niles Road from the new
Rather than offer a straight cash
deal for the property in question,

cash, trade and conditions deal to

fer, made Tuesday by the Board
includes payment of $45,000 in
cash, trading the two Elementary
school sites to be abandoned with
the stipulation that the Board be
allowed to remove furniture and
fixtures from the schools and the
windows from the Port St. Joe
Elementary buildings. The remain-
der of the structures would be left
on the. property as it. The Board
also asked that a 100 foot street
right of way (extension of Long
Avenue) be given for the length
of the new school property.
Tom S. Coldewey, Vice-President
of the St. Joe Paper Company said
Tuesday night that the Land Com-
pany officials have taken the lat-
est offer under consideration and
will probably have an answer late
this week or early next week.
Local Library Proving Popular With
Port St. Joe Citizens, Mrs. Jones Says
Mrs. Elizabeth Jones, Library. Assistant in charge of the Port
St. Joe branch of the Northwest Regional Library System, points
to a poster on the wall of the local library which reminds that this
is "Library Week" over the nation.'
The local branch, located next door to the Piggly Wiggly Super
Market, is growing in popularity with the Port St. Joe reading pub-
lic, according to Mrs. Jones. She said that in January, of this year,
1,149 people used the Port St. Joe branch. While current figures are
just slightly below this high for the year, thus far, Mrs. Jones said
that use of the local library increases considerably during the sum-
mer vacation months.
In addition to the library, the Regional Library is now offering
Bookmobile service to Port St. Joe. The Bookmobile will be in
Port St. Joe Monday afternoon at 2:00 p.m. and will be here on al-
ternate Mondays thereafter.
The library opens each afternoon at 2:00 p.m., except Wednes-
day when it is closed all day. The facility opens at 9:00 'a.m. Satur-
day only. Night hours are observed on Tuesday and Thursday, when
the Library is open from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.
Serving as officers of the Gulf County Branch are Mrs. Jane
Patton, Director, Northwest Regional Library; and Gulf County
Library Board members: Mrs. Bill Simmons, Mrs. F. B. Redfern,
Mrs. Sam Britt, C. E. Daniell and Mrs. Charles S. Davis.

Ben's Bill Unfair to All
Representative Ben C. Williams made it public through
the Panama City papers last week that he was going to in-
troduce two bills which he said "wouldn't be controversial".
One bill was to require sale of private property to any
political subdivision at the vilue by which it was placed on
the tax rolls (and, apparently, no more).
The second bill would require national banks to pay
for documentary stamps when receiving public money for
Ben intimates that these are needed public bills with
no malice toward none. Whether he has intentionally aim-
ed them at anyone or not, I would not hazard to guess.
Since Mr. Williams has always been "controversial" and
I think he' is proud of the fact, it would hardly seem the
thing to do now to wax "non-controversial'.
WOULD AFFECT EVERYONE
The Representative is right in one thing,, The property
bill would not be aimed at any particular party. It would
be aimed at everyone .. you and I. and Representative
Williams. Taking of private property for public use has
come to be a common thing with expanding government
building needs, school expansion, highway, expansion and
a multitude of other uses. Probably the most current tak-
ing of private property for use of any consequence was
the taking of a block in Tallahassee for a new state building.
The block, in down town Tallahassee was populated by busi-
ness houses. The property was acquired by the State for
$2.5 million--a fair price for a block in downtown Talla-
hassee. But if the property had been taken in the light of
William's bill, all of those merchants vacated would have
been bankrupted by the state. and this isn't right.
Should Highway 98 between here and Tyndall Field
be 4-laned, the Representative's house at the Beach will
be needed for road right-of-way. Is he going to stand still
for the state paying him the declared value on the tax roll?
To ti the truth, I wouldn't sell my property for its
purchase price, much less its price on the tax rolls. It is
worth far more to me than its full purchase price. If it
were on the tax rolls at full purchase price, I wouldn't be
content to settle for this price. It costs something to re-
locate. In many instances people who have had their land
taken must relocate and purchase new property. at the
market value. not the cash value. They must re-build
at the building costs of today not the full cash value
of the building vacated.
Mr. Williams is climbing this ladder from the top
down, if he is attempting to force valuations up on real
property. The people will not stand still for a full market
value to be placed on property with the present tax limita-
tions allowed taxing bodies. There is a possibility of a
full cash value going on the tax rolls and more likely a
"fair valuation" until something is done about millage lim-
itations other than what is on the books already.
S OWNERSHIP PROTECTION VITAL
We were reading in Russel Kirk's column the other
night of an instance up North where the state took over
the property of an old man. a house he had built with
his father when he was a young boy. The state had the
'power to take at its price and this it did. Was the
house, worth just an appraised value? Was it, worth what
it was listed on the tax rolls at? No, it meant far more to
its owner than money, but this higher value wasn't consi-
dered by the state. Ownership of property is one of the
basic reasons for upheaval in S6uth America now .. it
is the reason for the Chinese rebellion of the late '40s .
it is the reason for the current Vietnam war. Protection
of private ownership is vital to the maintenance of the
backbone of the United States and the weakening of this
basic freedom to settle a spite or to "save the taxpayers
money", just isn't worth the toll it would require from
the American nation.
We won't come right out and say that this bill is aimed
at anyone in particular, but we will say that it will be un-
fair to all.

TO THE PEOPLE OF
PORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA:
I am writing this letter to you
trying to get you to realize what
Dixie Youth Baseball means to our
town. If it were not for baseball,
do you realize what the young
boys of our town would be doing
I know that what we, the offi-
cers and managers, are doing is
right or, else I would not continue
to pursue it. But we can't do it
alone. We have to have your help.
I don't mean in money. We have
to have you to take part.
To be able to play a ball game
you must have umpires as you
know. I have just about .gone my
limit trying to get men to call the
games. We have some men that
all you have to do is ask them and
they are always willing but it is
not right to impose on them all
the time when we have 160 boys
in baseball right now. Yet when
we start looking for the fathers
and mothers of these boys and
ask for a little help, they seem to
always have something else to do
that is more important.
I want to ask you mothers and
fathers, "what is more important,
that young boy being able to have
a place to go and have supervised
sports or be turned loose to find'
his own pastime?"
Sometimes I feel lik6 just throw-
ing up my hands and saying "to
heck with it," but then I would
not be able to live with myself, for
I would feel I had perhaps neglect-

my help, some body that by hav-
ing something to do would not be
exposed to do something that may
be a black mark against him in
So to you, the people of Port St.
Joe,' if you want to continue the
sport of baseball in our town, it
will be up to you, for as I have
stated above, we can't do it alone.
I want to say at this time, I am
proud of the officers and managers
of our Dixie Youth program. I
don't think we could have any bet-
ter but we could have more.

The headlines had something for everybody this past week:
"Speck Is Guilty", "Kirk Inaugurates Highway Safety Program",
"Stokeley Carmichael Will Visit Florida", "100 Burn Draft Cards",
and "Government Will Be Powerful, But Keep It Open". These
were only a few, but they are bound to have far reaching effect
on our lives. And there were more equally important.
Richard Speck was found guilty of killing eight nurses in a
single night's orgy. With the current agitation over the nation to
do away with the death penalty, some were giving odds that Speck
wouldn't be convicted or would be released due to insanity.
With growing support for abolishment of the death penalty, it
might be a good thing that Congress is considering a law to limit
the sale of firearms. With the handcuffs placed on law enforce-
ment, it looks like the nation is evolving to the frontier days when
each man carried a 6-shooter and protected his own rights and
administered his own justice and everything was fine as long as
it was "self defense".
It looks like Stokeley Carmichael's visit to Florida is a "bust".
He isn't attracting too much attention.
He fractures me. He is the head of the Student NON-VIOLENT
Coordinating Corps and then tells Negroes in Memphis to unite
and take the town a-part. Ah, peace!
Stokeley does do some good, however. The only sad thing is
that our enemies only take heart from his sowing of discontent
rather' than stand back in awe and fear that a Nation can let him
expound, freely, such views as he advocates and not fear that it
will have attraction to enough of the people to take over the na-
tion. Stokeley is truly this Nation's best advertisement of our
world-wide claim of freedom of speech.
These beatniks that burn their draft cards give me a pain .
where a pain would bother me most. How come they never burn
their Social Security cards, their welfare cards or their credit
cards.? Why don't these draft card burners and "ban the bombers"
sit down and try to come up with a solution that will allow us to
pull out of Vietnam and stop Communism at the same time. They
have the time to put to this problem most of them do nothing
but demonstrate anyhow. They had just as well be putting their
energies to good use.
We go along with the Governor's crack-down on unsafe driving
practices in the State of Florida even if his chief crime fighter,
George Wakenhut is its first victim. Such a program worked in
diminishing highway accidents, injuries and deaths in Delaware and
it should work in Florida, also. Let's face it, if a person faces
loss of his driver's license even for a short period of time, he's
going to be careful.

Gardening In Florida...
By HERVEY SHARPE
University of Florida
Critics say that gardeners who
dream about seascape gardening
have water on the brain.
While others who dream about
space gardening are branded as,
Regardless of your cranium
structure, you may like to try your
hand at either one of the garden-
But unless you are a diving ex-
pert with underwater equipment,
try space gardening first.
Space gardening experience will
come in handy in case you need to
while away .the time during a de-
lay at, an orbiting station between
the moon and Mars.
If you don't:have a blast-off pad
handy to reach outer space, prac-
tice air-layering at lower altitudes
'in the back yard.
Air-layering is an easy way to
encourage rooting of shrubs and
trees that are finicky in their
rooting habits. Carissa, lychee and
guava are suggested for the pro-
The operation is simple. Re-
move a half-inch ring of bark near
the base of a twig, tie a handful
of damp sphagnum moss around
the ringed area, then wrap the
moss-covered sectionr of plant with
a piece of plastic.
It is a good idea to select a shady
limb to air-layer. If exposed to
blazing summer sup, you may get
broiled branches under plastic ra-
ther than roots.
Now is a good tinme to propagate
shrubs by softwood cuttings. For
best results, limit your cutting ga-
thering to early morning hours.
Traditionally, plant sprigs root
better when covered with dew. Al-
so, snipping and slipping cuttings
before neighbors awake often al-
lows for greater selection since
property lines are not as important
when no one is watching.
Make cuttings 4 tp 6 inches long,
cutting below a node and allow as
many leaves as possible. After
treating the base of the cuttings
with hormone powder to induce
rooting, stick them in the propa-
gation bed 1% to 2 inches deep.
Space the cuttings so that the
leaves overlap about one-third.
Next, firm the soil and turn th
hose on "constant mist".
A mist head and a waterin
spike is available from your local
garden supply store for about $3.
The device, attached to a hose and
set up in the middle of a group of
cuttings, will boost your rootings
nearly one hundred percent.
When the roots on the cuttings
are about an inch long, transplant
and space them in a nursery row,
or in gallon cans obtained from the
local dump. If you plant them in
open ground, it is a good idea to
mulch around the transplants to
conserve the moisture and to keep
the soil cool.
For additional information on
air-layering and mist propagation,
