City Formally Adopts
The City Commission formally
adopted a new budget of $620,-
130.00 for fiscal year 1967-68 Tues-
day night and levied nine mills to
finance the budget. -
The third and final reading of
both the Appropriation Ordinance
and the Ad Valorem Tax Millage
Ordinance was heard by the Board
and the budget and millage una-
The new budget calls for a $64,-
606.00 increase over the current
fiscal year and a millage reduc-
tion of 3.2 mills. The reduction in
village was brought about by re-
valuation of taxable property and
additional taxable property going
on the rolls. The largest increases
in valuation were brought about
by the St. Joe Paper Company ex-
pansion and the new Florida First
National Bank building being plac-
ed on the tax rolls.
The City of Port St. Joe was presented a

School Opens, Keep A Watchful Eye
School' is scheduled to start in Gulf County next
Thursday. In addition to getting the kids out from under
foot for a good part of every day, the beginning of 'school
also means problems.
Primary among these problems is the influx of kids
in and around the streets during certain hours of the day.
In many cases it means that kids will be traveling to and
from home on the streets and sidewalks that have never
been out of the yard by themselves or without the watch-
ful eye of a parent watching over them.
On occasion, they will meet with incidents they do not
know how to handle. In these instances, they will dart in
front of your car, or close to the side of the road, causing
you to mutter under your breath, "why don't those crazy
kids look out what they're doing?"
Of course the reason they don't "look out" is because
they are not cognizant of "the danger they are placing
themselves in. So it is the responsibility of you and I to
do their thinking for them and try to eliminate their dan-
ger from our end and not depend upon them too much, at
an early age, to behave reasonably and responsibly at all
We're going to have to be a little more careful with
our driving habits in and around Port St. Joe after next
Especially on Long Avenue.
With two of Port St. Joe's largest schools on Long
Avenue, the danger of pedestrian and motorist meeting in'
an uncompromising position becomes magnified all out of
normal proportion Already Long Avenue is a main ave-
nue of traffic ingress and egress between residential areas,
and Port St. Joe's industrial and business areas. The
danger was already there before the kids hit the scene.
Part of the danger on this thoroughfare will be elim-
inated in the near future, according to Mayor Frank Pate,
who says the State Road Department has promised a red
light for the 16th Street 'and Long Avenue intersection.
This will help. But nothing will help like our motorists
taking .a little extra precaution on this and all streets, es-
pecially after school opens.

A Strength of Freedom
'Although there are no two individuals alike in all the

to be that the greater a person's education and awareness

opinion on issues affecting his life or his nation.-
Judging by all the uproar that various minorities are
raising in the United States about everything from the
personal integrity of our highest public officials to birth

and sparking the intellectual involvement of a good share
of its citizens. Admittedly, not all of this protesting makes

Florida National Group
A teacher is someone who may
very well 'be doing the most im-
portant job in the world. And
today, a difficult job, because the
world is more complex, know-
ledge is more complex. How much
simpler it must have been one
hundred years or so ago to be a
teacher, when you taught the
same thing in the same way that
had been used for centuries .
when a slate, a primer, and a
dunce cap were the main teach-
ing tools. But how many fewer
children went to school, and how
much less they learned! Today's
teachers, on the other hand, keep
up with the changing world. If
you are a parent, you are well
aware of this. You need a book
on the new math to understand
what your children are learning.
364 days a year, we take our
teachers for granted. Today, how-
ever, with school opening next
week, is a good time for us to re-

Governor Claude Kirk "caught it" from all sides by officials of
the State of Florida for his appearance at a Black Power rally in
Jacksonville last week. "Showmanship" said some "Sensation-
alism" said others. Chiel of the protagonists were Comptroller
"Bud" Dickinson and of course Secretary of State Tom
Criticism, of course, was leveled because of differences of
party affiliation or narrow-mindedness in plain words. Re-
gardless of whether you were a Kirk supporter or not; regardless
of what your politics, you can't argue with success. The whole
point is, violence didn't erupt in Jacksonville. Who among you
will believe that Rap Brown was in Jacksonville for other causes
than to foment another shameful riot in our nation?
Whether Kirk's appearance at the rally had any effect in
keeping sanity in what is now Florida's largest city or not, we can't
say. But this we know: Kirk intervened in a Tampa riot and it
ended overnight. Kirk intervened in Jacksonville and a riot
didn't develop. Coincidences such as these two in a row are
not to be made light of.
Both Dickinson and Adams have accused Kirk of trying to run
the government or be the government of Florida. May-
be Mr. Adams and Mr. Dickinson have forgotten that by far the
majority of the people of Florida elected Kirk to be the governor
or government .'. of Florida.
By the same token, the majority of the voters of Florida elect-
ed Mr. Dickinson to be the Comptroller of Florida not the
Governor. The majority of the voters of Florida elected Mr. Adams
to be Secretary of State not Governor. These two jobs are
so interrelated to one another, possibly Florida could lump these
two offices into one and save some salaries. These two apparently
don't have enough to do with their own duties. They must try
and fill our Governor's office also.
In the case of Mr. Adams, he has made life miserable for
our last three governors trying to mind their business in.
stead of his own. We read where Adams is trying to get him.
self into the position to run for Governor. If Adams has to have
his way now, in order to play the game how insufferable
would he be as Governor? If his present attitude toward coop-
eration were to elevate with elevation to the office of the chief
executive, he would make Kirk's attempts at trying to be the
chief executive look like that of a bashful schoolboy.
Considering the so-called "patriotic" Democrats standing around
looking for some action by the Governor to "be agin", we think he
ip doing a good job of bringing authority back to the Governor's
office where it belongs. At' least one can't say the office is being
run by hangers-on.
We can't go along with everything he does but then we
don't feel it proper to condemn the program 100% for two or three
mistakes. We think he is wrong in education, but we feel it is bet-
ter to try and understand what he is taking about and look and see

The county is in the prelimi-

construct these buildings is on

on a Freedom of Choice basis,

Pinching poinsettias and maid-

If you are adept at penny-pinch-

settia buds will come naturally.
. The why's of nipping unwise
,pending in the bud are many. The
iogic for pinching plants is for a'
'arger display of "flowers".
Debudding a poinsettia shoot
*vhen it reaches six inches in
ength will cause the plant to
,row more compactly and to pro-
luce more branches on which to
,et color this fall.
If you have let a number of
poinsettiaa shoots become long and
3ggy, it is not too late to remove
he wayward shoots. The trimmed'
'anes can be rooted easily under
constantt mist and forced to set
tolor by fall.

from immature whiteflies, aphids,
mealybugs and soft scales. Control-
ling the insects usually prevents
the black mold.
Keep an eye peeled for hopping
insects such as .Georgia thumpers
(grasshoppers), katydids and field
crickets. These pests are leaf chew-
ers. Some of them are night eaters
which hide in the ground-mulch by
day and rasp away on the ornamen-
tals by night.
Chlordane will kill the hoppers
as well as several kinds of beetles.
Spray the ground as well as the
plant for complete control.
Summer is lay-by-time for many
gardeners-they allow part of the
garden area to rest. However, as
the sun may bleach the bare soil
into a sand dune, it is better to
plant the plot to a cover crop.
A legume cover will increase the
nitrogen supply in the soil. Crota-
laria or cowpeas are two excellent
summer green-manure crops which
will check weed growth and give
the garden a neat appearance. The
crotalaria will produce a yellow
canopy of blossoms this fall.
If you plant cowpeas, be sure to
choose a nematode-resistant variety
such as Iron or Brabham.
A chore that cannot'be avoided
during hot weather is shearing the
Sheared hedges which are allow-
ed to become shaggy before being
clipped must be pruned extensive-
ly: large stems are cut and bare
areas show on the hedge surface.
The best answer to trimming hed-
ges is to tackle the job often, and
trim a little at a time.
Broad-leaved evergreen shrubs
and trees need a summer shot of
fertilizer. Oranges, mangos, azaleas,
camellias, and many other orna-
mentals come in this class. .

State Road- Department Agrees to
Perform Several Street Projects In City
An attempt 'by the Port St. Joe
City Commission to place some
sort of traffic regulation system at
,he corner of 16th Street and Long
Avenue met promised success this
week. The State Road Department
has promised to place a traffic
light at this corner, according to
a letter from a Mr. Brannon, Dis-
trict Traffic and Planning Engin-
eer of the SRD. A letter from
3r-annon to this effect was read to
the C i t y Commission Tuesday
night by City Clerk Charles Brock.
The letter stipulated that since
Long Avenue has been designated
as a State Secondary Road the for-
mal request for the light must be
made by resolution from the Gulf
and heavy traffic periods were ob-
served by SRD officials.
Brannon's letter said that a third
survey would be made after school
starts,- when traffic on Long Ave-
nue is at its heaviest.
Ask for Line Work
In addition to the signal light
survey, the City called on the State
Road Department to place center
lines and parking lines on the new
paving work that has recently been
completed in Port St. Joe-under
the secondary road program.
Commissioner Holland said that
he would get, with local SRD rep-
