City Contributes $500
To Courthouse Program
The City Commission voted
Monday night to contribute $500.00
to the dedication program for the
new Gulf County Courthouse here
in Port St. Joe. The dedication is
tentatively set for early December.
Commisisoner Tom Coldewey,
who made the request, said that
other governing bodies in the
County will also be asked for a
contribution for the ceremony.
Mayor Frank Pate suggested tc
the City Commission Monday night
that the City should begin taking
steps to secure airport services
for the City of Port St. Joe.
Pate suggested that the Cit3
work along the lines of making the
facility serviceable for the entire
county and ask the Gulf County
Commission to join in the project
Commissioner Tom Coldewey
said that in line with the Mayor's
request, the St. Joe Paper Com-
pany had offered 2,000 acres tc
the Port St. Joe laycees a year or
two ago when they were interested
in the project. Hle said the pro.
perty, which was ideal for airport
use, was located across Highway
71 from the Howard Creek Road.
Coldewey said this property was
picked because oi its suitability
for an airport; it was within 10
minutes by auto to .Port St. Joe
and would also be easily access-
able to the remainder of the coun-
ty, and the area.offered possibili-
ties for almost unlimited expansion
for the future.
'Commissioner Bob Holland said
that John Presnell of Port St. Joe
had approached him about the
same subject. Holland had asked
Presnell for some concrete pro-
posal and facilities :needed for a
serviceable airport so that he could
intelligently .present the matter to
the Board. Holland said that he
would try to obtain this informa-
ion for the next meeting which is
scheduled for Tuesday, July 18.
Mayor Pate asked Coldewey
about property parallel -1to the
Jones Homestead Ro& d and the
possibility of securing it for an
Coldewey replied that there
'ere several objections to this site.
He said the prevailing winds in
this area are East and West, and
the only usable "ridge" in this
area runs North and South making
it objectionable. A second objec-
tion was due to the fact that area
is the natural growth area for the
City of Port St. Joe and an airport
in this location would offer fu-
ture problems to residential
expansion. A third objection was
the lack of acceptable area for fu-
ture expansion of an airport.
Mayor Pate asked Coldewey if
the same offer for the property on
Highway 71 would still be in effect
Coldewey replied that he thought
iit would, but that he would find
(out for sure by the next meeting.

THE STAR. Pert St. Jo., Fla. THURSDAY, JULY 6, 1967
By WESLEY R. RAMSEY
When this Fourth of July holiday came in the mid-
dle of our "paper week", we could see no alternative, but to
work on the holiday. We firmed our chin, told the men
in the shop, "Men, I just don't see how we can get by
without working Tuesday". They drew up all their re-
serves, let the news ink circulate full force in their veins
and replied, "The paper must go out .. holiday or not
S. we're with you", with all the assurance one could
muster in a situation like this.
But, along came Monday, and we began to weaken.
Everywhere we would call for advertising on Monday
people were planning on what they were going to do on
the "holiday". Our reserves began to weaken. We sat
down and figured our "committed inches" and started fig-
uring what we could leave out to print a "holiday edition"
which included the editorial for this week .. and convinc-
ed ourselves that we, could, indeed, wrangle a day off with
a little bit of effort.
When we made this announcement, we also received
wholehearted agreement from the men in the shop a
little more wholehearted than the former announcement
We read in one of our exchange newspapers the other
day, a bit of wisdom we will pass on to you.
This learned piece stated that if an athlete gets ath-
lete's foot then the astronaut must get missilee toes".
That's almost as bad as the man who had "Dunlap's
Disease". His stomach had done lapped over his belt.
A fellow from Georgia was by the other day and
observed that everyone in Florida may not be satisfied
with Governor Claude Kirk. He also observed that Flor-
ida bad many firsts first in space first in tour-
ism the finest beaches and fishing in the world .
and many other desirable attributes that are "first" in the
And then he observed that Florida not only had its
first Republican Governor and the first, Republican Gover-
nor in the South in many years. but that Florida had

And, whether we like it or not, we have to admit that
he is right.
Governor Kirk is showing us just how strong the
Governor's office can be in, the State of Florida.
Looking back over the June issues of The Star, we
find that marriage is becoming more popular than ever.
Or maybe there's just more people to get married.
At any rate, we published more wedding and engage-
ment announcements during the month of June this year
than we ever have before.
We wish them all happiness.

At sometime in the life of most
of us comes the desire to live on
-a houseboat. Here in Florida with
its countless miles of coastal and
inland waterways, the desire be-
comes much keener.
Oldsters, ready for retirement,
find the thought particularly invit-
' ing and thanks tothe amazing pro-
gress made in the development of
practical and economicalI house-
boats during the last decade, it is
now possible to find a houseboat
to meet most anyone's pocketbook.
Just as you can enjoy the pleasure
of owning a motorboat, from the
smallest runabout to the luxury
yacht, you can find a houseboat
new or second-hand to meet your
needs and financial ability.
My first experience with a house-
boat came when I made a two week
tour of inland and coastal waters
on my friend Rube Allyn's "Best

Wildlife Management Area
Named In Honor of Ed Ball
TALLAHASSEE-With the es-
tablishment of a new 75,000 acre
wildlife management area in Gulf
County, public hunting opportun-
ities will be realized on more than
one half million acres of wildlife
management areas lands through
the cooperative efforts of the 'St.
Joe Paper Company.
In recognition of the cooperative
efforts olf the large timber com-
pany ina providing public hunting,
the new Gulf County wildlife man-
agement area has been named af-
ter the president of the. St. Joe Pa-
per Company and' will be known
as the Edward Ball Wildlife Man-
agement Area, according to W. T.
McBroom, Chairman, Game and
Fresh- Water Fish Commission.
"The new Edward Ball Wildlife
Management Area is located in the
southeastern portion of Gulf Coun-
ty and has been closed to all hunt-
ing and related activity. The area
will receive extensive management
and stocking to improve the wild-
life habitat and replenish the sup-
ply of game animals and birds.
The area will be opened for public
hunting once the wildlife popula-
tion has become established and
capable of producing an annual
harvest," McBroom said.
In addition to the wildlife man-
agement areas made available by
Mr. Ball and the St. Joe Paper
Company, a number of wildlife
refuges and sanctuaries have also
been established., These include the
world famous Wakulla Springs,
"which has been desighateda. wild-
:life sanctuary by the National' Au-
.dubon Society, Southwood -Farms

utilized by the Commission as a
