Early Morning Fire
'Destroys Beach Bar
An early morning fire Friday of
last week completely destroyed the
Wonder Bar cafe and motel at St.
The fire was discovered by pas-
sing motorists and reported, but
the inside of the building was
completely engulfed in flames
when the blaze was discovered. -,
At first it was feared that a care-
taker of the property was in the
building when it was burned, but
he was located Friday about noon.
Pete Harrell, owner of the beach
business was in Michigan attending
a funeral at the time of the fire.
Cause of the blaze is under in-
vestigation by the State Insurance
Commission office. The investiga-
tion is routine, since all fires of
unknown origin in the Port St. Joe
area are now investigated.
School Board Plans to Levy
14.11 Mills to Finance Budget
The Gulf County Board of Public
Instruction will hold hearings Fri-
day afternoon at 1:00 P.M., CST,
on a proposed bone and a half mil-
lion dollar budget for the new fis-
cal year, which began on July 1.
The hearing will be held in the
offices of the County Superinten-
Added to the operation budget
of $1,452,684.52 will be a budget
for capital improvement-construc-
tion of two new high schools-in
the amount of $2,320,871.33.
The operational budget is $50,
500 less than last year's budget,
but will require more local millage
to finance than last year. Last
year's millage for school purposes
was set at 12.3. This year's has
been tentatively set at 14.11 for
an increase of 2.8 mills.
The largest deviations from last
year's budget in the income side
are in all three avenues of income.
Some are up, some are down.
Cash carry-over for the coming
year is less than last year by some
$44,000. Last year, the school had
$94,994 in cash carry-over. This
year it is only $58,844.00. Receipts
from state and federal sources are
less this year by $19,000. Last year
this source yielded $916,689. This
year, the Board expects only $897,-
702.52. Local funds are taking
nearly a $65,000 jump from $423,-
309 for last year to $488,578 this
year. This is the money raised by
local ad valorem taxes.
The largest area of increase in
the new budget will be instruction-
al personnel salaries. This item
will increase by $94,000 to provide
for a. 1.0% raise in instructional
A village levy breakdown shows
that the Board is planning to levy
3.3 mills for county support and
maintenance out of a possible 10
mills. The Board will levy 10 mills
as allowed by the freeholders of
the county over and above the
state limit and .81 mills for debt

SAY YOU SAW IT IN THE STAR
PAGE "WO THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Florida THURSDAY, AUGUST 24, 1967
Time To Modernize
The most important single fact about the political
system of the United States is that its original design as
set forth in the Constitution was so well thought out that
it has served to protect the rights and freedoms of the
individual citizen for some 180 years. Its continued effec-
tiveness in this regard depends upon the proper functioning
of our. federal system of government-a combination of a
strong central government with definite powers limited by
the Constitution and vital, effective state governments to
temper this central authority.
The Bill of Rights, which sets forth the constitutional
guarantees of individual freedom, in Article 12 states,
"The powers not delegated to the United States by the
Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved
to the States respectively,. or to the people." Many au-
thorities argue today that the states are losing the broad
residual powers granted to them by these words-that
they have failed to meet their responsibilities to collect
taxes and adequately direct the administration of their
affairs and te organization of new programs required in
today's context of a rapidly developing wealthy nation of
some 200 million people. But, we say, the states are not
losing these rights, they are giving them away. In many
broad areas of welfare, in provision of public facilities
such as roads and schools, in legislative organization and
city planning, state governments more and more look to
the federal government for financial aid and direction.
They accept with it a lessening of their own authority to
direct and control affairs in these areas with the flexibility
required to best meet state and local requirements.
The Committee for Economic Development, a nonprofit
research and, educational organization, has proposed a
plan entitled "Modernizing State Government", which puts
top priority on revision of state constitutions. The obser-
vation is made that ". .. most states share one common
failure-persistent refusal to restructure their own gov-
ernments or to modernize those of local units." In some
states, there is crippling, detailed, constitutional restric-
tion 'of the legislatures' taxing and spending authority
which makes it impossible for them to effectively deal with
long-range problems affecting the state at large. The
CED report recommends annual legislative, sessions and
higher salaries for members. Governors should be given
the authority required to place them in a position of being
". chief executives in fact as well as in name." They
".. should have authority and responsibility for develop-
ing long-range plans, for program supervision, and for
budget and personnel management, with adequate staff
and resources suited to these functions." Other recom-
mendations dealing with judicial functions, political or-
ganization and interstate co-operation in solving mutual
problems are advocated to make the individual states the
responsible, effective, legal and political entities which
they must become if the federal system, as we have known
it, is to survive.
These observations are especially important to the
State of Florida at this time, when the Legislature is at
work drafting a new Constitution. It seems that most of
the changes in the original draft are weakening the posi-
tion of the sovereign state, rather than strengthening it.
Governor Kirk proved last week that the Governor is
not much more than a figure-head, when' he absented him-
self from the State Cabinet meeting, where most serious
state business is conducted, and the meeting went on re-
gardless of his absence. This proves his point that the
office of Governor is not as important for the state's well-
being as it sounds. Maybe you think placing more power
in the hands of the Governor is placing too many eggs in
one basket, putting too much dependence on one man. But
the proposed Constitution provides for the office of Lieu-
tenant Governor to take over on the failure or death of
the Governor. A Governor is elected on his platform, no
matter who he may be. He deserves the power to carry
out his program. If the program is not our liking, we can
change after four years.
Malcolm Johnson, editor of the Tallahassee Democrat
this past Sunday hit at the state's inability to finance the
school system with taxes that could be depended on. He
said sales tax revenue is too uncertain, yet the state can-
not tax personal property. Then this past week the Sen-
ate agreed on limiting a county's millage for school pur-
poses to five mills. It now stands at a limit of 10 mills
with each county having the prerogative of voting an addi-
tional 10 mills for school purposes. This, again places the
need for school financing on some source other than local.
Since the state does not have the taxing resources to levy a
stable tax, the responsibility then falls to the federal gov-
Almost to a man we bow up in the middle at Federal
controls, but we place ourselves in the position of having
to depend upon federal money, and, federal controls. We're
all against federal controls, as long as it affects someone
else. It's time we became concerned about the future of
our own state in relation to the federal controls that are
creeping upon us willingly.
State governments, including Florida, are unquestion-
ably on trial today. If we are not willing to pay the price,
if we cannot change where change is required, then we
have only one recourse. And that is to prepare for an
orderly transfer of our remaining responsibilities to the

I don't know who to thank, but I sure don't want the oppor

been done me. I certainly appreciate the professional football
games being played and televised on Monday nights. There just
couldn't possibly be a better time. This is the one night in the week
I can watch them. It doesn't interfere with the week end ball games
nor other programs. Now, if we could just arrange it so that
the games would start about a half hour earlier, everything would
be just dandy. But late or no, we will have to watch our favorite

of bed in the middle of the night or the wee early hours of the

We have been a Volunteer Fireman for nearly 15 years now,
and that getting up in the middle of the night is getting rougher
and rougher. And the day following, is getting rougher still.
But every once in a while someone says, "I appreciate it",
and things are a little easier.
Things were going along pretty smooth, with hardly an auto-
mobile accident marring our day, when, lo and behold, here the
past two weeks, four serious accidents and one lesser one have
occurred in and about Port St. Joe. It seems that the accidents
started when Mayor Pate and Chief Griffin asked us to publicize
the fact that motorists should take a little more care since school
is about to get underway.
Maybe this request for caution wasn't the cause of the acci-
dents, but the rash of accidents certainly point out vividly the
need for emphasis on increased caution by our motorists.
We had a house full of "company" all last week. The first
part of the week, our friends the Buttram's from Quincy, were
with us, and the last half of the week, our brother-in-law and his
wife from Warner Robins, Ga., visited in our house.
Friday, the brother-in-law took our two "at home" boys and
Bill Hendrix out into the bay fishing and they did pretty good.
They caught 23 Spanish mackerel. But Saturday, we just decided
to show them the expert way to do things, and went along with
them, out into the bay, fishing for mackerel. With our able as-.
sistance, the catch Saturday morning for a two and a half hour
trip, was 175 Spanish mackerel.

Cadillacs, a hundred color televi-

bubble gum, I have yet to see a

My shoulders ache every time I
see the poor postman advancing,
stoop shouldered, to my door for
I know that he is carrying a dozen
or more pieces of junk mail that
I will have to throw in the waste
The pitiful part of it is that I
receive the same offers from the
same idiots over and over again.
As an "Ocupant" or "Resident" I
am sucker number 1. Evidently
enough people fall for the gag to
make it worth while but I question
it when I receive once a week or
more an offer to insure me against
anything from warts to lumbago
provided I am not over 60 years of
age when I am over 70. The only
satisfaction I get out of such com-

the poor dumb clucks got no return

something to think about.
IT'S SCHOOL TIME AGAIN!
CHILDREN ARE UNPREDICTABLE
SAFETY IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY
WHEN IN DOUBT . STOP!
School bells will be ringing again. The streets and
roads will be filled 'with children heading back to
school. This means that every driver should be alert
and extra careful. Children are young and eager .
Sometimes unpredictable they may or may not
see you ... Be sure you see them!
DRIVE CAREFULLY Our Children's Safety
Is Everyone's RESPONSIBILITY
BICYCLE RIDERS PLEASE NOTE
All those riding bicycles.are please asked to observe all
traffic rules, such as hand signals, etc. Those not ob-
serving the rules of traffic safety are just as liable as
drivers of automobiles.
Be double sure that you are in control of
your car, able to stop on a split-second no-
tice, if a child should dart in front of you.
'NOTE THE TIME
3 Remember, children are always dashing
about. Watch out for those peak traffic
periods, mornings, noons and afternoons.
Heed signs that warn you where school
traffic is to be found. Obey the temporary
CHECK YOUR CAR
Take a little time to be sure your car is func-
tioning properly. The responsibility for the
life of the little folks is yours.

A cool sight! Yet found only below the equator
at this time of year. But why go to extremes,
when you can have just the degree of cool com-
fort you prefer-right at home! At lower cost,
too. Improvements in flameless heat pumps
have increased efficiency and reduced costs so
much that it's the trend in new homes for cen-
tral cooling and heating.
Once you update yourself on the facts of cen-
tral electric climate-control, we think you'll see
it's a modest investment that pays big dividends
in health-less strain on your heart, better sleep,
less hay fever and heat rash, less nervous ten-

Miss Sandra Ann Williams, Herbert Higdon Swatts Are
,Married In First Methodist Church On August Fifth
Miss Sandra Ann Williams and
Herbert Higdon Swatts were unit-
ed in holy wedlock Saturday, Au-
gust 5, at 3:00 in the First Metho-
dist Church, Port St. Joe. The
beautiful and impressive ceremony
was performed by the Rev. 0. M.
The bride is the daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. William C. Williams and
.the groom is the son' of Mr. and
Mrs. Ralph A. Swatts, Sr., all of
Port St. Joe.
The bride, given in marriage by
her father, chose for her wedding
a floor length empire sheath gown
of silk organza over taffeta. The
fitted bodice featured a Sabrina
neckline and elbow length sleeves.
The bodice, hemline and sleeves
were appliqued with re-embroider-
ed. lace roses. The chapel train,
also of silk organza over taffeta
was bordered with lace roses. Two
rows of lace roses were appliqued
at intervals down the back of the
train. Her fingertip veil of illusion
was attached to a rose of lace,
rhinestones and pearls. She carried
a cascade of white feathered car-
nations nestled in tulle and cen-
tered with a lavender throated cat-
tleya orchid, lily-of-the-valley and

Safety Film Shown
To Rotary Club
"Safety Is No Accident". This
was the title of a film shown to
the Port St. Joe Rotary Club last
Thursday at their regular dinner
meeting in the Motel St. Joe Din-
The film, produced by the Ford
Motor Company, showed the exten-
sive research that goes into making
the modern day automobile safer
to drive on the highways.
Tests in the Ford laboratories
show that conditions and compon-
ents in the vehicle are responsible
for many accidents and injuries as
the result of accidents. The re-
search program is designed to
make the automobile as safe to
operate .as is humanly possible and
to search for ways of better pro-
tecting passengers from serious in-
juries in case of accidents.

Game and Fish Commission May Lose
Constitutional Authority To Regulate
has been expressed by the Game
and Fresh Water Fish Commission
over the recent action of the
House of Representatives to abol-
ish the Commission as a constitu-
tional authority with the power to
establish hunting and fishing rules.
The present provisions of the Con-,
stitution places in the Commission
the full responsibility for manag-
ing and regulating the wildlife and
fresh water fish of the state.
According to W. T. McBroom,
Commission Chairman, a change in
the Constitution would place the
-state's wildlife and fresh water
fish conservation programs under
the jurisdiction of the Legislature
rather than the present constitu-
tional Game and Fresh Water Fish
Commission. The Constitution pres-
used for the conservation of wild-
life and fresh water fish.
McBroom said, "The Legislature
that proposed the Constitutional
amendment, creating the present
day Game and Fresh Water Fish
Commission, in 1941 and the peo-
ple of Florida that approved it in
the general election of 1942 and
again in 1960 did so with full
knowledge of the inadequacies of
the system that existed prior to
1943. We think that the interested
public believed that maximum sta-
bility and efficiency in fish and
wildlife conservation could best
be achieved by a system permitt-
ing maximum and immediate know-
ledge and application of scientific
principles in wildlife conservation
while at the same time maintain-
ing close direct liason with those
ently dictates that all hunting and persons-hunters, fishermen and
fishing license monies, and other other wildlife enthusiasts-most in-
Commission revenue funds, will be terested in the subject. We believe
AJ~I2I I WATER S5KNl G
j~n """| .st. ^ fitH*
that the present system most near-
ly meets these conditions.
Historically, nation-wide conser-
vation has prospered most in a
governmental system and climate
where the conservation agency has
been most free within the frame-
work of its creating authority to
make policy and decisions based on
sound practices and principles of
McBroom said, "Without claim-
ing credit for the accomplishments
of any past or present member of
the Commission or staff, the effec-
tiveness of the work and program
of the Game and Fresh Water Fish
Commission has improved and the
public has been the beneficiary.
The staff works under a uniform
merit system and has become thor-
oughly professional and dedicated
to its task. Since the appointment
of the first constitutional Commis-
sion in January. 1943, Florida has
risen from a position of obscurity
to one of leadership in the field of
wildlife conservation, and is so rec-
ognized throughout North Amer-
He added, "There appears to be
in the legislature some philosophi-
cal objection to an agency being
established by the Constitution ra-
ther than the Legislature., I sup-
pose the best argument for the
present Commission is: It has
worked and, judging by the 1942
and 1960 popular vote, the. people
of Florida want it like 'it is."
The Commission 'Chairman con-
tinued, "The Game and Fresh Wa-
ter Fish Commission will stand on
its record as a consuttional con-
servation agency by inviting the
comparison of its achievements
over the past 25 years with the
time prior to its creation' or with
other states of the southeast that
are under a legislative system.
Port St. Joe needs an Airport
by Governor Claude R. Kirk fight it as vigorously.
"One of the things that concerns
me most as Governor is making
sure that our steadily growing pop-
ulation is assured of job opportun-
ities and regular paychecks.
"Florida is one of America's
greatest growth states-and our
major growth still lies in the won-
derful years that are just ahead.
But for our people to participate
in that growth' and share in its
benefits means that every Florida
citizen who wants to work must
have an opportunity to get on
"There's a lot of talk about juve-
nile delinquency-about tension-
and about unrest. You and I know
that the best cure for these un-
healthy conditions is hard work-
with a regular paycheck' at the
end of every week. The citizen who
is employed, who is raising a fam-
ily, who is a respected member of
his community is someone who
takes pride in himself, in his fam-
ily, in his job.
"No amount of Federal Give-
away Programs, no amount of wel-
fare dollars, no amount of the
best-meant charity can do one-
tenth as much as a real job, with
a chance at advancement and more
money, to give a young man or wo-
man a sense of belonging. And peo-
ple who belong to the community
and who are a valued part- of its
life don't get involved in riots,
crime or delinquency.
"That's why during the time I'm
privileged to serve as your Gover-
nor I want to make sure we bring
those new job opportunities and
those new payrolls into Florida-
and to make sure the business we
already have expand to make more
"And I want everyone to have an
equal opportunity. I don't want any
Floridian to be left out and I don't
want any Floridian to suffer from
discrimination. That's as unameri-
can as Communism and we must
"Just a few weeks ago I signed
into law the first Legislation in
Florida's history to prohibit dis-
crimination of any sort in state em-
ployment. It's a fine piece of Leg-
islation and I am proud it became
a law .during my administration.
"Since I became Governor, I've
spent many hours and traveled
many miles to make sure we would
have the new jobs and payrolls we
need for a healthy Florida econ-
omy. I thought you'd be interested
in some of the results.
"Westinghouse is building 'new
plants at Tampa and at Pensacola.
These two plants will mean a total
of 'eight hundred new jobs. IBM is
building a new computer plant at
Boca Raton with 400 new jobs to
become available before the end of
this year. Anheuser-Busch is build-
ing a forty million dollar brewery
at Jacksonville. Florida Power Cor-
poration is constructing a new thir-
ty million dollar nuclear power
plant at Crystal River. An electron-
ics firm, Solitron, has announced a
two million dollar expansion at Ri-
viera Beach that will add 435 new
"These are just a few of the new
investments, by business and indus-
try in Florida. Before the year is
out, 40,000 new jobs will be made
available according to our current
"That's a lot of jobs and a lot of
pay envelopes and a lot of happy
and secure families."
"But we don't intend to stop
there. I've established a Florida
office in Washington to make sure
Florida firms ge their share of
federal contracts. In one month
alone, April, Florida firms were
awarded defense department con-
tracts that amounted to more than
twelve and a half million dollars.
That's a lot of money-and a lot
of pay envelopes.
"Right now, the Florida Indus-
trial Commission tells me there are
many thousands of job opportuni-
ties in Florida. I intend that these
job opportunities are going to keep
on growing and growing so long as
I am your Governor. I intend that
every Floridian who wants to work
will have the opportunity to earn
a regular paycheck. That's the kind
of "good society" I want to build
with you in Florida. Together,
we're going to do it."

A FAMILY AFFAIR
Ellis Stevens, between the two fish, pulled in these two large
tarpon Thursday evening, fishing from the old oil docks. The tarpon
on the right weighed 93 pounds and the one on the left weighed
67 pounds. Stevens was aided in bringing the huge tarpon up the
docks by his half-brother, Ronnie Bordelon. Stevens said he used
live chophers for bait caught by his nephew Jay Stevens. So, you
might say, these two tarpon were "A Family Affair".
