County Officers Move Out of Old Courthouse
County workmen worked all day Friday and Saturday of
last week end transferring the records' of Gulf County from the
old Courthouse in Wewahitchka to 'the new modern building
recently completed in Port St. Joe. -
The old Courthouse had served: the county since its con-
'struction in 1927, but had grown sorely inadequate to house the
various County offices efficiently. The need for a new Court-
house spurred a relocation movement in 1963 and in the 1964
primary elections, the County Seat was relocated on a vote of
the people to Port St. Joe, where the new Courthouse was start-:
ed two years later.
The last order of business was conducted in the old aban-
doned Courthouse in Wewahitchka at 10:00 A.M. Friday morn-
ing when the County Commission -opened bids -to purchase a
truck. The bid was awarded' to Tommy Thomas Chevrolet
Company of Panama City at a trade price of $6,551.12.
Monday morning of this week, County .offices opened for
business as usual, here in Port St. Joe in the new facilities on
Highway 71 at the North edge of the City Limits. The Court-
house hosted hundreds of visitors on that first day, inspecting
the new facilities and visiting with county officials.
The Star photographed some of the happenings of that last
day in Wewahitchka. In the photo at left, Clerk of the Circuit
Court, George Y. Core, is shown removing the last of his record
books from the stack of files to his right. In the middle photo
the Board conducts its last order of business in the old location.
Most of the furniture had been removed, so they had to sit in
the old jury' chairs in the court room to conduct their business.
In the photo to the right, Sheriff Byrd E. Parker closes the cell
block in the old Courthouse after the last prisoner had been
transferred to Port St. Joe. The Sheriff was the first to begin
moving his offices. The Sheriff's Department began operating
from their new location on February 1.
Formal dedication of the new Courthouse has been scheduled
for Friday, February 23 when a free fish fry will be provided
for all visitors and Governor Claude Kirk will give the dedication

GEORGE E. SMALL
THE GETTYSBURG ADDRESS:
"Fourscore and seven years ago our fathers
brought forth on this continent a new nation, con-
ceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition
that all men are created equal.
Now we are engaged in a great civil war,
testing whether that nation or any nation so con-
ceived and so dedicated can long survive.
We are met on a great battlefield of that
war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that
fields as a final resting place for those who here
gave their lives that that nation might live.
It is altogether fitting and proper that we
should do this.
But in a larger sense, we cannot dedicate-
we cannot consecrate-we cannot hallow this
ground. The brave men, living and. dead, who
struggled here, have consecrated it far above our
poor power to add or detract.
The world will little note nor long remember
what we say here, but it can never forget what
they .lid here.
It. is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated
here to the unfinished work- which they who
fought here have thus far so nobly advanced.
It is rather for'us to be here dedicated to
the great task remaining before us that from
these honored dead we take increased devotion
'to that cause for which they gave the last full
measure of devotion that we here highly resolve
that these dead shall not have died in vain that
this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of
freedom and that government of the people,
by the people, and for the people shall not perish
from the earth."
Abraham Lincoln once stated:
"A little planning will defeat your
worries." This still holds true. No
financial worry can stand up
against a carefully planned
financial program. See us today!

We were attending a breakfast Saturday morning at the Long
Avenue Baptist Church. The men of the church gather to eat
breakfast, cooked by their own clumsy hands, each first Saturday
morning of the month.
After the breakfast, as usual, the conversation started. Andy
Martin began to tell the story of the hubcaps being stolen from his
Mustang, in Tallahassee.
"Andy", we said, "you mean you own a Mustang a sports
car a man of your age?"
"Yes sir, I have a Mustang a sports car. or at least my
daughter, Barbara, working and living in Tallahassee, is using my
Harry Ford piped up and quipped, "What's wrong with a man
Andy's age having a Mustang? My wife has been married to a
Mustang since 1927!"
Get it? Harry FORD! Mustang!
Now, I can tell by looking-and I'm sure you can too- the dif-
ference between a Model "T" and a Mustang.
We read by the papers where a "compromise" is about to
be reached by the special session of the Legislature concerning
improvements in education and some means of financing.
The "compromise" doesn't include many of the changes rec-
ommended by the Committee on Quality Education, but it looks
like the watered down package will pass in time for the Legisla-
tors to go home after their 10 days of service contracted for.
The biggest things to be included in the "compromise" pack-
age is that the people of Florida decide whether or not to have
an appointive State Superintendent and to- increase financing by
$267 million. The Governor's program called for expenditures
of an additional $460 million.
At any rate, the compromise package is going to make a dent
in the Florida pocketbook, but one we believe the people can
The only thing that bothers me is whether or not the FEA
will accept the package offered.
The Governor and the Legislature were right to take a long
harc look at the situation before a move was made to make sure
that all of Florida received a fair deal out of any changes in edu-
cation, But anything less than progress coming out of this spe-
cial session will not sit well with the people of Florida.
Is Panama City and Bay County getting ready?
We noticed in the Panama paper the other day that two new
buildings are now in use in Port St. Joe on "Harrison" Avenue-
the new Gulf County Courthouse and the Ward Ridge City Hall.
This extension of "Harrison" Avenue from Panama City thru
Port St. Joe to Ward Ridge would seem the only logical first step
in getting ready for the threatened consolidation of several counties
in the State of Florida to -make fewer counties. And, withlour
-new Courthouse now in operation, we are ready to absorb Bay
County. But we must warn them even with the extension of
"Harrison" Avenue, ..we will be absorbing you not you absorb-
Here's a thought to remember: The old lady in the shoe had
no trouble, keeping her numerous kids in line. She knew which
side her brood should be battered on.

The patrol commander pointed
out that drivers who are travel-

uncertain about what to do or
where to go. "These uncertain-

local drivers react with patience,

"Plain old southern hospitality

',: County Forester
Gulf County had during January
1968, five wild forest fires
which burned over 12.9 acres of
timber land, according to HI A.
Hardy, county ranger. As compared
to a year ago the same period of
time the county had One (1) fire
which burned .4 tenths of an acre
of timber land, states Hardy.
The average rain fall ii" Gulf
county during January 1968 was
2.26 inches compared to 3.86 inches
in January 1967. Hardy points out
that when the rain fall is light the
water table lowers from the surface
of the ground. This causes the ve-
getation on the ground surface to
become very dry and inflammable
causing it to be easier to ignite and
get a forest fire started. County
ranger Hardy urges every one who
uses the forest to be extremely
careful with fire while in the
The Florida Forest Service is
extremely proud of the fine fire
record in Gulf county over the past
years. This, Hardy says, could not
have been without the help of all
the people of Gulf county, and the
volunteer fire department through-
out the county. For this we are
grateful, says Hardy.
Florida Forest Service urges you
to help us to prevent wild forest
fires in your great county. REM-
MEM TIMBER provides work for
people, and work provides food and
clothes for people. Tree filters the
air we breathe, makes a home and

,: That's a fair question. But not an easy one to answer because we have our own quality
standards, different from any other rpeat merchant.
These standards don't fit exactly the familiar terms you know fpr grades of meat. As
an example, did you know that some beef, graded U. S. Choice, just doesn't meet our
.I: "Super-Right" specifications? It's true! You see ... we don't buy by grade. We use
our own high standards to bring you the best values.
That doesn't mean we don't approve of such grading-not at all. It just means we're
very fussy about the beef we label "Super-Right." It stands to reason we have to be or
A&P wouldn't be America's number one meat merchant.

They're one of many!
