struck by an auto driven by Joseph
D. Brooks, traveling on Fourth

For Water Plant Expansion
Mayor Frank Pate announced at
the meeting of the Port St. Joe
City Commission Tuesday night
that the City has been awarded a
$38,400.00 grant from the Housing
'and Urban Development group of
the U. S. Government for expan-
sion of the City's water treatment
plant. T !
The grant was made after sev-
eral months working with HUD by
Commissioner Robert Fox, who is
in charge of the Water and Sewer
Department of the City.
Announcement of the fund grant
came to Pate from Congressman
Bob Sikes and Senators Spessard
Holland and George Smathers.
Estimated cost of the project
which will include additional fil-
tering capacity at the water
treatment plant, is :$90,400 to-
tal cost. The City's share of the
program is $52,000, which is on
hand in the present City' budget.
The expansion of the water
treatment plant will make it cap-
able of serving 10,000 people.
Mayor Pate announced at the
meeting Tuesday night, that it had
taken one year to secure the Fed-
Pate announced that the City
would begin taking immediate
steps for the final process of com-
pleting construction plans already
available through the City's con-
sulting engineers, Smith & Gilles-
pie Engineers, Inc., of Jacksonville.
Final plans will be sent to Atlan-
ta during the next two weeks for
approval by HUD and contractor
bids will be called fpr immediately
Construction will' begin as
soon as. possible on, the addition-
al filtering capacity so that it
will:be in'operation by Spring of
1968 to,1 accommodate the de-
mands of summer water usage.
/ Pate offered the thanks of the
Commission to Congressman Sikes
and Senators Holland and Smath-
ers for their "fine and energetic
support that has enabled the reali-
zation and completion of a most
necessary and important public
project that will enhance the
growth of this area for many years
Pate also complimented Commis-
sioner Fox for his efforts in secur-
ing the grant.
The Mayor pointed out that this
was only the first step in a pro-
gram which will eventually mean

PAGE "WO THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Florida THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 1967
We Asked For It!
Well, we asked for information and we received it ..
from three or four different directions.
We wanted to know exactly what the FEA wants from
the, people of Florida. We don't say "the Legislature"
because the Legislature is only the voice of the people of
Florida. So we will refer to the bargaining points between
the FEA and the people of Florida. Not the Legislature,
the Cabinet, the State or Governor Kirk. ,
We think the program leans a bit toward generalities
and is not quite specific enough, but maybe that can't be
At any rate, the program, generalities or not, is in
trouble throughout the state. This has come about by too
much "demanding" and not enough "asking" or "confer-
ence" by the parties of both parts. Both the FEA and
Governor Kirk have said things about each other that are
too harsh in a situation where both have the same desires.
The only differences of opinion, that we can see, is the man-
ner in which to go about securing "quality education" for
the State of Florida.,
We say the FEA program faces trouble due to three
things. First, the FEA rebuff of Senator Slade's idea of
passing ,their program and letting the people decide in elec-
tion whether they want to adopt it. Second is a statement
made' by Democratic Representative Maddox' of Winter
Haven this week in which he said that the FEA was wrong
in the way which they are pursuing their desires. The third
was a poll taken at a Director's meeting of the Florida
newspaper editors two weeks ago in which the editors were
almost unanimously behind Governor Kirk's method of go-
ing about bringing "quality education" to the State of
We see very little wrong with the teacher's desires
and wishes. The only error we can see is their lack of a
business-like manner in going about financing and bring-
ing the program into being. While the education of our
children is "emotional" and desirable, we must still look
to the business aspect of bringing the program about.
We believe this is the only area in which the FEA
and the Governor differ. The Governor is going about
this program in the way business operates. Determine the
need by proper, pains-taking investigation, determine the
amount of money needed and if it is available. Then take
proper steps, that will not falter toward achieving the de-
sired goals. The FEA members are not business men
and cannot be expected to look at this problem from a busi-
ness approach. And, the business approach is necessary,
since financing is business.
We will agree with the FEA that most of their pro-
grain is desirable. Some of the demands may be too
much for the State to accept. But, with a reasonable at-
titude we can absolve these differences. We repeat, with
the right attitude by both parties.
This is where the specifics come in. We can't, for the
life of us see where implementation of this program is go-
ing to cost an additional $500 million dollars during the
next two years. We think this is what scared off Governor
Kirk it scared us off!
With $500 million, you could replace virtually every
school in the State of Florida with a brand new, adequate,
We feel Governor Kirk agrees with this program also.
He has said as much in his ideas for "quality education".
If he didn't feel this way, we would be against him 100%.
But, like the Governor, we can't see a $500 million price
tag being spent on improvements as worthy as it is.
We don't feel this much money is necessary to achieve our
The ,-Days of Autumn
It always seems that summer has barely started when
someone smells "fall in the air". Many people hate to see
the leaves begin to burn. But, if they will look around them
when fall is in "full bloom", they will find that they are in
the midst\of one of the most pleasant seasons of the year.
While there is a tang in the air, there is also a new fresh-
ness. Crisp mornings and falling leaves tell us winter is
coming. We will look to such things as winterizing and
tidying up the premises. It is time to think about anti-
freeze for the car and getting the heater ready.
Autumn begins this year on September 23 Satur-
day so those who have been smelling fall in the air
will be vindicated on that day. Autumn marks the be-
ginning of the challenging and busy days of the fall sea-
Best of Everything
Headline stories have followed a depressing theme of
the failures and shortcomings of the U. S. Many good
citizens are failing to look for the things that are right
with this country as well as the things that are wrong with
it. For these people, the remarks of Commissioner Willard
Deason of the Interstate Commerce Commission should have
special meaning. He lists the many complaints of the
"cussers" which range from Vietnam to inadequate high
schools and high food prices. ,
Mr. Deason says, "With all these tales of, doom and
gloom, I was mildly surprised to learn of the thousands of
scientists, doctors and engineers from other countries who
are pouring into the United States each year. This so-called
'brain drain' annually involves as many foreign doctors as
30 medical schools can graduate. Five thousand foreign
engineers and scientists come to America 'annually. And
nearly 40 per cent of the physicists who received their
Ph.D's abroad end up in the U.S.A." He then goes on to
remind us that, "Americans are the best fed, best paid,
and best educated people in the world," and concludes
"That's what's right with America."
As Herbert Hoover said on the occasion of his 90th
birthday, "The critics say we seem to be in a very, very
bad way, and engaged in our decline and fall. Criticism is
no doubt good for the soul, but we must beware that it
does not upset our confidence in ourselves. So perhaps the
time has come for Americans to take stock and to think
something good about themselves." In brief, our country
is a good land and not the least of its virtues is that we
have the inalienable right of cussing the government as
loud and long as we please without being penalized, jailed

'lease: notice that I did not list
his item as number one. I did this
intentionally, because although, we
s teachers like to consider we will
be paid for services rendered .
t is not foremost in our minds!
Teachers do tend to be greedy I
admit, however, they are greedy
or the children they teach more
han for their own pocketbooks.
Many use money from their pocket-
books to provide materials for their
students. They want good books
with enough to go around; ade-
quate materials; enough desks and
chairs, etc.; in a room that doesn't
leak and attract dog flies .
which fries them in the summer
and freezes them in the winter!
Like others, I put up with this be-
cause I want to be a teacher. All
the flowery adjectives I could use
to explain why would fail to do so
I'm sure. Why do you print a news-
paper? Are your monetary profits
comparable to the amount of work
you do? No, as in my work, even
the Governor's salary would not co-
ver those many emotions spent
worrying over Johnny and Mary.
Yes, you're right! In this county
we have received a raise. We're
extremely thankful and fortunate
that we have a school board who
realizes they have to offer compe-
titive salaries to attract teachers
to come here and remain here.
So, this is what the teachers
want. These items are needed,
NOW. I make no apologies for this
program, regardless of the cost.
And, I feel that deep in the
heart of most parents they realize
that schools cost money. Education
is like everything else YOU
GET EXACTLY WHAT,YOU PAY
State law' allows the School
Board to levy, without elections,
up to 10 mills a year. They have
have limits like every other
branch of County government.
The election is held to levy all
over 10 mills, up to an additional
10 mills. Don't apologize for be-
ing greedy; aren't we all? We
agree with you 100% about the
heating conditions at the local
schools. They are deplorable.
You ask why I publish a news-
paper? I really don't know, other
than the fact that I like it. It
can't be the money since I make

ful to the School Board arid the
citizens of, Gulf County for their
efforts. I am personally more ap-
preciative than anyone, because it
is my responsibility to keep Port
St. Joe High School staffed with
the best teachers I can find. This
is not easy when you have to sell
your school' community to each
teacher in one interview, and keep
the salary in the background, as
principals in Gulf County Schools
have had to do in the years from
1961 through 1966.
In 1957-1958, teachers were beg-
ging for jobs in Florida and each
Florida school system had its pick
of the top teacher candidates of
the colleges. Florida had some
good teachers during those years
and some of them are still with us.
But, as the State failed to make
continued progress in education,
many were disillusioned and re-
turned to other states, such as
Georgia, which started low and
worked its school system up to
one of the'best in the South. Dur-
ing the years 1961 through 1966,
Gulf County principals, in most
instances, had no choice in the
the personnel they hired. They
were glad to get a teacher to fill

Another year has slipped by at The Star. The newspaper
is now entering its 31st year of continuous publication. What real-
ly made us sit up and take notice at this particular year was the
fact that in two more months, we will have published The Star as
long as the founder, W. S. Smith. He sold the paper to us on No-
vember 10, 1952, after 15 years and two months of ownership. This
November will mark our 15th year as publisher and owner.
We would recommend that you obey the highway laws for the
next few weeks at least! We understand that Highway Patrol-
men Murphy and Hilton, who serve Gulf County have been called
on the carpet for the few arrests they have made in Gulf County
during the past month. The FHP says that so many automobiles
have traveled over Gulf County highways during the past month
and statistics show that X number of arrests should have been
made. The two patrolmen have made eight arrests during the time
period for which they received the chewing out.
The patrolmen explained that people in Gulf County were just
naturally more law-abiding than anywhere else, which accounted
for the low arrest number. The FHP officer didn't buy this.
We'll buy it though.
We might add our endorsement of the two officers. They do a
good job. And perhaps their diligence in their jobs has something
to do with their low number of arrests.
But, if they want to up their quota to an acceptable standard,
they can come to the street across from our house which dead ends
at the High School and St. Joseph Bay, at about 1:00 to 2:00 a.m.

cational showcase of America. ,Yet every move he has made-with
the support of the minority, legislators-has resulted in lower educa-
tional standards for our state. H'e has consistently vetoed or rejected
every legislative opportunity that would have moved our state
upward onx the educational ladder.
And Florida remains 34th out of the-50 states in educational
expenditures. With the Governor's help, we could be Number 50
in no time.
Penny-wise and pound-foolish. The Governor seeks to "hold
the line on taxes" and in so doing, he has taken measures which
Swill cost the taxpayers more money in the long run. (But that will
be the next administration's problem, as far as Governor Kirk is
concerned.) Unfortunately, these measures will also seriously affect
the state's educational programs during the next two years. And
that's our problem.
The Governor's vetoes. Governor Kirk has vetoed proposals to
provide adequate funds for Florida's 1.4 million school children -
thereby putting greater tax pressure on the already overburdened
individual counties. Many schools will be forced to suspend certain
important school services altogether, while cutting back drastically
Here's what you and your children face:
e INCREASED COSTS OF SCHOOL LUNCHES IN PUBLIC
e ADDED COSTS FOR SOME SCHOOL SUPPLIES AND
OVERCROWDED CLASSROOMS EVEN MORE SO
FOR THOSE ALREADY OVERCROWDED
MORE DROPOUTS A MAJOR ECONOMIC AND PER-
CUTBACKS IN THE CRITICALLY NEEDED PROGRAM
FOR EXCEPTIONAL CHILDREN (75,000 RETARDED
AND HANDICAPPED CHILDREN NEED HELP NOW.)
0 CUTBACKS IN AN ALREADY INADEQUATE KINDER-
CUTBACKS IN VITAL SCHOOL LIBRARY SERVICES
e INCREASED TUITION FEES IN JUNIOR COLLEGES
SERIOUS TEACHER SHORTAGES, DUE TO INADE-
QUATE SALARY INCENTIVES
Can we afford this continuing and accelerating educational de-
cline? If you agree that we cannot, that the future of Florida and
of Florida's future citizens depends on better education now, please
join with the teachers of Florida in the struggle to stamp out this
educational blight. Your signature on the form below or a per-
sonal letter mailed to your Senators and Representatives listed

School spirit was sparked by a
bonfire Pep Rally sponsored by the
Key Club last Thursday night. The
pep rally was highlighted by a mo-
torcade led by the cheerleaders.
Spontaneous pep rallies were a
common sight in school last Fri-
day. St. Joe High is very proud of
the school spirit displayed by the
students this year.
During the scheduled pep rally
Friday afternoon, a moment of
silence was held in honor of
Tom Owens, who was the super-
intendent of schools inr Gulf
County for a long time. Mr. Ow-
ens added much to education in
our county and his death saw a
sad occasion for everyone.

was planned for 100 people and

Nationally about eight addresses

be less than the system used in

be likened *to green gold.
Reeves said the day is not for
distant when Florida forests and
related industry will generate two
billion dollars per year. Trees,
which in many ways must be con-
sidered an agricultural crop, are
profitable for the landowner. But
the benefits of harvested, market-

terial are not confined solely to the
individual tree farmer.
Entire communities in the Sun-

re-vitalized by the healthy influx
of forest dollars.
