The Port St. Joe Jaycees are very pleased to advise
local citizens that the Fishing Reef project is now completed.
The project was completed last Saturday when 102 hollow
concrete blocks weighing one ton each were placed on the
bottom of the Gulf of Mexico at a depth of about 43 feet.
The purpose of the reef is to attract snapper, grouper
and other salt water game fish.
The location ot the reef, expect-
ed to attract all kinds of salt wa-
ter game fish, is located 1.6 miles
south of the sea buoy at 172 de-
grees magnetic bearing from the
buoy. The reef is 4.1, miles due
West of St. Joseph's Peninsula.
1,000 MAN HOURS
In carrying out the project, the
Jaycees compiled over 1,000 man
hours of work and spent $3,300.00.
Of the money expenditure, $1,250
was from local donations and the
remainder of the money was from
State matching money.
The Jaycees have had the con-
crete blocks ready to go since No-
vember of last year, but thle delay
in placing them in the Gulf of
Mexico was caused by the lack of
heavy equipment in this area to
transport the 102 tons of blocks
to the reef site' and lower them
into the water.
Last week, the Jaycees secured
the services of a barge mounted
-rane and tugboat, which was do-
ing some work on the Apalachicola

Commissioner N e d I ey .didn't
seem to think this was such a good
idea as Garrison and Long are

SAY YOU SAW IT IN THE STAR
Jaycee's Fishing Reef Placed
In Gulf of Mexico Saturday
New Florida Fishing Licenses Will
Go On Sale Today; Must Have July 1
Semester, Six Week Honor Roll Listed
Before we- get into this thing, let's set the record
straight on one thing. We are in favor of an adequate
salary for school teachers. We are in favor of adequate
facilities and materials for our children to utilize in rq-
ceiving a quality education. By using the word "adequate"
we do not mean "minimum" nor do we mean "maximum"!
. ... not even "average". We use the word "adequate" in
its purest sense sufficient to meet the needs.
We think that our editorial policy of the past will bear
out this claim of ours.
But we, along with nearly every other newspaper in
the State of .Florida cannot condone the "sanction" action
of the Florida Education Association.
We realize that the situation of financing in Florida
schools leaves a lot to be desired. But the claim that the
facilities in the State of Florida are unsuitable for pro-
viding a good education are inadequate, we cannot go
along with. We cannot even accept the claim that Florida
is near the bottom in the nation insofar as quality educa-
We will, and have, accept the fact that teachers are
inadequately paid for their work. The recognition they
receive for the job they do is less than adequate. Still,
in our mind we cannot condone sanctions.
There are numerous times that we do not think The
Star receives adequate support in its efforts to provide
the people of Port St. Joe with news, but we would never
dream of issuing sanctions against the city.
WE ARE FLORIDA
We thought it was a good thing for the Gulf County
faculties to send letters to the Board of Public Instruction
absolving them of any blame for the sanctions being im-
posed. The letters, in effect said, "We don't blame you,
we know you did all you could, we are condemning only
the State of Florida."
Who is the State of Florida?
It's me it's you .. its the Gulf County School
Board members the Superintendent. the teachers.
When you impose sanctions against the State of Florida,
you are imposing sanctions against yourself, as well as
every other citizen in the state.
We can realize the teacher's displeasure with the Leg-
islature, but why apply your wrath to every citizen of the
state? Why attempt to impose sanctions that will harm
rather than help the situation? We sincerely believe the
teachers mean their actions as something to build with,
but their actions will not build. they will have the oppo-

supported several gubernatorial candidates in the past few
years, but received no salary increase from their "favored
candidate". What is the reason for imposing sanctions
Virtually every newspaper and citizen in the State has
been working for the past two or three years to get a decent
salary for school teachers. We have worked long and hard.
For the first time in several years we have both a Legisla-
ture and a Governor who say they will give the teachers
ahd the school system a salary relief and we have sanc-
This sort of knocks the props out from under those
of us who have worked hard, and at times stuck our col-
lective. necks out for the betterment of schools and teacher
salaries. This is sort of embarrassing to us.
We realize the Governor's salary proposals were in-
adequate. But we do believe that with a little more "honey"
applied in this instance, a better situation would have been
worked out. The "salt" poured on the situation by sanc-
tions cannot draw the necessary harmony for bettering the
situation, in our opinion.
They say one should never oppose a situation without
offering a solution.
To be absolutely frank, we do not know what the solu-
tion should be. But, in our opinion, such as it is, the ener-
gies expended in working out sanctions, directed toward
presenting the case for education as it is, to the Legislators
(keeping in mind they recognize the needs of education)
would have resulted in a money bill that could be lived
with. We have no idea that the demands of the Florida
Education Association would be met to the dollar, but,
again using our word "adequate", we believe the solution
arrived at would have been adequate to meet these needs.
NOT NEARLY ENOUGH
"It is possible to wave the flag too much? Provided,
of course, that you wave it with integrity? Is it possible
to study Lincoln or Shakespeare too much? Is it possible
to read the Bible too much? The great, the good, the
true, are inexhaustible for inspiration, example and
strength. I believe that we are not waving our flag enough,
not nearly enough." '
-by Sidney L. DeLove, prominent Chicago banker
4. Critics of teacher salary rais-
es claim that Alabama-salaries are
only slightly higher than Florida.
Bear in mind when discussing this,
that teachers in Alabama work
nine (9) months whereas Florida
teachers are REQUIRED to work
for ten (10) months.
5. The General public is un-
der the impression that teachers
have paid holidays plus a paid
summer vacation. This is not the
case! Teachers are paid for ten
months' work, but their pay is pro-
rated over a 12 month period.
6. Because of low salaries many"
teachers are forced to "moonlight"
and obtain summer jobs. In many
areas teachers draw higher salaries
for non-teaching employment. They
return to the profession in spite
of this because of a sense of com-
mitment to young people.
7. The general public is under
the impression that the teachers
have a specific number of hours
in the day to perform their duties.
Teachers have many outside non-
teaching duties that are necessary"
for the effectiveness of the total
school program. These duties range
from grading papers to chaperon-
ing school sponsored events.
8. Teachers with bachelor de-
grees must take six (6) semester
hours of college work every five
(5) years in order to retain certifi-
cation. If a teacher teaches stead-
ily until retirement age, he will
have compiled college hours equiv-
alent to that required for a doc-
tor. In addition to this requirement
many teachers voluntarily return
to school to improve their skills.
9. Under the minimum founda-
tion program the state contributes:
Rank III, $3,950.00, annual contract;
$4,350.00, continuing contract and
$4,750.00, continuing contract and
10 years. The county must assume
the difference between what the
state pays and what the teacher
actually draws. We feel the state
should assume a greater responsi-
bility in its contribution toward
implementing education on a local

S Looking back on the calendar we see that these showers are the

We see by the newspapers that the idea of combining several
of the smaller counties in the State of Florida is not yet dead. A
bill is being prepared to take the first steps toward combining
Florida's 67 counties into 50 counties. This might be a good thing
for some of the smaller counties now having a struggle making

was over around Quincy and Havana, Florida and up around Meig&,
Cairo and Moultrie, Georgia. We couldn't tell you much about it
from Tifton, North, since we were on 1-75 and you don't see a
whole lot of countryside on the freeways. But from Quincy to
Tifton, the ponds are full, the corn and tobacco is green and the
cattle are fat. A fine drive for sight seeing.
Now, if the summer lasts long enough, we plan to take a week
end off sometime in the future and journey to South Florida and
see the sights there. We think it is a sin for someone to live in
Florida since 1940 with the exception of about six years, and never
see the Southern portion of the state.
But then, when you publish a small weekly newspaper in a
small city and try to make the small weekly look like the larger
weeklies, you don't get the chance to see much other than a Linotype
machine, a make-up stone and a press. It doesn't leave a lot of
time for sight-seeing anywhere.

Take Common Sense
And Courtesy With You
TALLAASSEE The Florid'a
Highway Patrol this week urged
motorists to take along common
sense and courtesy on vacation
trips this summer..
"In our modern times with com-
plex traffic situations," said Col-
onel H. N. Kirkman, Director of
the Depjartment of Paublic Safety,
"We sometimes forget the import-
ance of plain old-fashioned com-
mon sense, and courtesy. Make
these your code of the road on
your vacation' trip, and it will help
you bring your family back alive."
The patrol chief lists several de-
fensive driving practices for. a va-
cation trip. Drive at a safe speed
,in keeping with the traffic vol-
ume, road and weather conditions.
Obey all traffic regulations. Read
and heed all traffic signs.
Use your rear-view mirror and
avoid any act that might surprise
the driver behind you. Avoid pa-
nic stops by keeping a safe dis-
taride behind the car,ahead. Always
be prepared and willing to yield
Ithe right-of-way. Expect the unex-
pected from pedestrians and other
Kirkman concluded by saying,
"There is no way of estimating
how many lives might be saved
every year by the exercise of a
little common sense, tolerance, pa-
tience and sound defensive driv-
ing, but the number probably
would be staggering."

Simple but elegant is this arrangement of Jewel nasturtiums
with their own foliage and a few. iris leaves.
For years nasturtiums hid their flowers under their leaves, thus
annoying gardeners who preferred to look at bright flowers rather.
than green foliage. Now plant breeders have produced nastur-
tiums with the blooms on top held well above the foliage.
All the newer nasturtium varieties are of this type. Look for
such names as Cherry Rose, Cherry Scarlet or Jewel Mixed when
you buy seeds. The first two are separate colors, of course, wi ile
the third, as the name implies, is a mixture including these two
colors plus many other tints and shades.
Jewel Mixed is considered an improvement of the popular

grow as dropping the seeds in the soil anywhere there is full

A friend of mine has a sign in
his office which pictures a grin-

under it the single admonition,
"Down With All Diets".
If you ask me it makes a lot of
sense. In this crazy, mixed up age
most of us are running around in
circles in search of health and
Never in the history of the
world have we been given such a
wide variety of advice as to what
is the matter with us and what to

No matter what your ailment
someone of your acquaintence can
tell you just what the trouble is
and what to do about it. You are
told that milk is the only natural
food and if you drink enough of it
all your troubles will vanish.
Those from another school, who
read something in a newspaper or
a book, are quick to tell you that
milk is poison and it will kill you.
Salt and pepper you are told are
extremely dangerous, sugar is
worse. Natural fruits and vegeta-
bles are the only things you can
'eat with safety. Meat of any kind
is taboo, on the other hand if you
don't eat meat you will lose your
strength and waste away in no
I have a friend who swears by
peanuts. He says you should eat
them religiously every day if you
want to stay well. Another tells me
that nuts are the worst thing I
could eat. Then I am told 'that if
I eat three or four almonds every
day I will never have cancer.
Another friend of mine is grape
happy. He claims he has retained
his health by eating no less than
a pound of grapes a day. Cheese
is good for what ails you and it
also causes your ailments. If you
really want to stay well you will
eat wheat germs, egg yolks, sun-
flower seeds, drink fresh sea water,
go all out on sea food and stear
clear of rice and potatoes.
Among my acquaintances I have
an old-fashioned country doctor
who doesn't agree with the experts.
He says the trouble with most folks
today is their gullibility. They are
continually scaring themselves to
death. They believe anything they
They keep feeding fear to their
subconscious mind. They tell it
over and over that they can't eat
this or can't eat that, so their sub-
conscious mind acepts it and pro-
ceeds to carry out the instructions
it is given. If they just had sense
enough to tell their subconscious
mind that they are well and happy
and doirg okay they would find
themselves in perfect health.
If you go around all day crying
about your pains and ills and feel-
ing sorry for yourself you can
wind up in a wheel chair before
you know it. On the other hand if
you resist the inclination to talk
about your troubles and direct
your mind to stay on an even keel,
your troubles will diminish to the
extent that your subconscious
mind determines you mean what
you say for it is guided by what
you tell it and works diligently to
bring the desired situation about.
The Bible tells us that, "As a
man thinketh,. so he is". So if you
insist on thinking right you can
overcome most of your troubles.

Many Workers AreNot Aware of
All Social Security Protection
Some workers in Gulf County
aren't, aware of all the insurance
protection under Social Security,
John V. Carpy, District Manager
6f the Panama City, Florida, So-
Scial Security Office, said this week.
IMany young workers mistakenly
Believe that Social Security pay-
ments 'are made only at retire-
ment. It is true that payments are
paid to retired, workers and their
families at retirement age. These
payments go to older workers who
have worked long enough under
Social Security; but there are other
times when Social Security pay-
ments are made, Carey stated.
One of these is at a worker's
death. Monthly payments can go
to his young children. Payments
also can go to any children over 18
who are disabled if their disability
began before age 18. Also, bene-
fits are paid to children who are
full time students until age 22. His
widow, regardless of her age, can
receive checks as long as she is
caring for minor children who
draw Social Security benefits. If
the widow is 60, she may receive
monthly payments even if she does
not have a child in her care.
Carey said that monthly pay-
ments can also go to a worker
under age 65 who becomes dis-
abled. The disability must be one
that can be proved by medical evi-
dence. The, disabled worker must,
have Social Security credit for five
of the tdn years just before he be-
came disabled. The monthly pay-
ments go to the disabled worker,
his wife and children as in the case
of a worker who has reached re-
The newest insurance under So-
cial Security is medicare. This con-

insurance and medical insurance.

Workers and their families can
get more information about Social
Security and medicare from their
local Social Security Office. The
office for this area is located at
1135 Harrison Avenue, Panama
City, 32401. The' telephone number
is 763-5331. The office is open on
Monday through Thursday from

day from 8:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. ex-

I returned not long ago from a brief but most satisfying trip
to -the Kissimmee River lakes of Florida's Osceola County. This
four-day jaunt was made for just one reason: .to test a new lure
color. But wait'll you hear the best part the color was purple!
Now I haven't anything against the color purple particularly
not' after this test and some earlier experiences but if you'd
have asked me two years ago to go fishing with a purple spoon,
I'd have said ... well, I don't know what I'd have said. Nothing
very complimentary, I'm sure.
But it was in 1965, not too far from Ocala, Florida, that I
heard about a lot of bass being taken with a purple plastic worm.
Didn't take me long to check out the rumor and brand it a fact.
Those purple worm3 were out-performing other colors, and
several different shades of spoons, to boot.
It wasn't long afterward that'I heard a similar story about.
.the drawing power of purple. Some fishermen farther north re-'
ported that lake trout were lapping up lead-headed jigs done in
a purple-blue colr. These stories were verified for me by the
people who make the Johnson's lures and boy, were they ever

'silver finish. The result is a ,r
lively, see-through color that's
just the opposite of our first re- '
action when we hear the word
"purple." ,;,13 4",,., c ;,
As for the "fish-ability" of
the new lure well; it was good enough to make my Orlando
brother-in-law and his know-it-all buddies holler "Uncle."
Four of us started down the Kissimmee, fishing in pairs, My
partner and 'I .'used the purple spoon exclusively, in all sizes
from 1/24 oz. (with fly rods) to 1% oz. (with bait casting rigs).
The brother-in-law and a friend worked with all sorts of lures,
including the Silver Minnow with.standard silver finish.
At the end of four and a half days, my partner and I had taken
and released well over one hundred keeper-sized bass and bream
beating the other team's score by very nearly two to one!
One thing I should add about fishing the purple Minnow is that
it works best with a trailer: pork rind, rubber skirt, or plastic
worm. Select the color that works best in your area. Also, you'll
want to keep in mind a couple of tips I've mentioned before.
First, get down in the weeds.* The biggest bass we took, half a
dozen at 6 to 8 lbs., were in the heaviest weedbeds we found.
Second, work a change-of-pace "retrieve by giving the lure
time to sink to the bottom after .casting, then bring it in with'
alternate slow and fast cranking speeds :
