Three R's of Education
Monday, the Gulf County Board of Public Instruction
applied its own interpretation of the Three "R's" of edu-
cation when they said to the missing school teachers, in
effect: Resign, Return to your classrooms or face Ret-
It was with reluctance that the School Board had to
arrive at this ultimatum, but-it is in keeping with the
laws of the State of Florida regarding this situation.
And certainly it is with reluctance that the people
of Gulf County-have to agree with the action against their
friends and fellow citizens. It is a distasteful situation
from whatever angle you happen to be viewing the man-
Above all, no one wants the teachers to resign. We
know that the teachers we have are experienced. There is
no guarantee that their replacements will be. We know
and like our corps of teachers. They are friends to many
of us. They are neighbors to many of us. They have their
roots here. In short, we are accustomed to the teachers
we have, and we are loathe to see them leave or threaten
Gulf County has lost some good teachers in the past
because odf the County's lack of efforts to provide as they
should. The County has now provided; not because the
people are crazy about paying taxes, but because we recog-
nize that we have a good staff here and we thought we'
were insuring this situation.
Everyone jin Gulf County wants the teachers back in
the classrooms. We believe Gulf County has demonstrat-
ed in the past that we will stand by our people. The last
demonstration of this was in December of last year, when
the voters defied pressures put against them by outside
forces and voted 10 extra mills on ourselves to head off
the bitterness and unrest that was sweeping the rest of
the state. Regardless of what the remainder of the state
;was planning to do, we were protecting our own.
After we took steps to protect our own, it just doesn't
it,"ight with many of us to have that effort betrayed.
.And the longer this absence from thie'classrooms goes
on, the mote people are going to begin to wonder. The
more they will grow antagonistic. The more they will
harbo3l411 feelings toward people they considered friends
two w&eks ago. This will only engender a situation from,
whicp Ibohody-least of all the teachers-will profit.
Application of retribution is not to be construed as
a task that, the School Board or anyone in this county
will e y.. But, by the same token, it is not a task that
will be ,neglected. Application of retribution is tasteless
enough-when it must be applied to a total stranger, let
alone to friends and neighbors. Don't force us into this
situation. We don't enjoy it, but we cannot shirk the duty.
,We must point out that nothing Gulf County can do

We read, heartening news in Grit the other day for those U. S.
Navy men who go to the Antarctic each and every Arctic summer
to observe; take measurements and explore. This duty has been, in
the past, a long, cold, dry spell in which they saw nobody but each
But, according to this article1 in Grit, help is on the way. A
team of Swedish women, ages 24 to 34 are going to the Antarctic
during the coming Arctic summer to try and climb a mountain.
This should spur up volunteers for the Antarctic job. But, it
may also swell the ranks of the service wives who say, "You tell
them you can't go!"
We were going into the postoffice the other day, when Ralph
Swatts met us at the door and said, "Where's Your Cadillac?"

"Yeah", said Ralph. "Where's your Cadillac?"

We have our own lives to live ... with our own peo-
ple. Just as we will be hurting only our own people by
application of retributions; so you will only hurt us here
in Gulf County by continuing this course of action upon
which you have embarked.
It must be pointed out that you are employed by the
people of Gulf County; not the FEA; not the NEA; not
even the State of Florida. It would seem the reasonable
thing to us for you to take up any complaints with the
people of Gulf County and let us settle our own problems.
South Florida has expressed, many times, an unwill-
ingness to fight our battles for us. Why should we fight
theirs for, them?
We would like to call to your attention the story of
the prodigal son in the Bible. Not that we are referring
to the absent teachers of our county as prodigal sons and
daughters, but we would like to call to your attention the
plight the prodigal son found himself in. He thought he
was doing what was best for him. He bonded himself to
what re thought would be a fair master. But the master
wound up making him eat with the pigs. We ask the tea-
chers not to allign themselves to a master who will wind
up feeding them the husks.
We realize that many of you teachers are nodding
your heads and saying, "that's exactly the situation we
are in with the State of Florida as our master". But it
isn't so. The State of Florida is taking giant steps to-
ward improving education, and this pause brought about
by' a teacher walkout will not halt that progress. Nor
will it help it along. No other state in the union is tak-
ing steps as large, as Florida to improve its school'system.
It is the failing of our system that nothing happens over-
night. But it is to the credit of our: system, -that when
we arrive at a goal we are on solid ground, not flounder-
ing around trying to tuck a foundation under a skyscrap-
er we have built in our haste.
We must agree with the School Board in their ulti-
matum, however reluctant we do so. We must abide by
the rules and in so doing, we earnestly hope that not one'
teacher in Gulf County causes the retribution that lies
amoig the. ruls, to necessarily| be applied to them.
Gulf County and the teachers of Gulf County can best
be served by an exodus'of the teachers-from the meet-
ing room back to the classroom.

Maybe a break in the teacher strike is on the way. The Legis-
latie leaders have finally taught Phil Constans, high duck of the
..., some matheriatics. Constans has now admitted that his fig-
ures concerning the amount of money allocated for education K-12
passed in the Legislature was in reality, $162 million rather than
the $92 million he told the FEA. We: don't know whether he has
made this admission known to all the FEA members or not, but it
was in all the newspapers.
It might seem out of step for the Legislature to be teaching a
School man how to add and subtract, but the House rose to the occa-
sion by letting its school teacher member, Ralph Turlington, do the
Also, of this total amount for the State, Gulf County will re-
.ceive a gross amount of $407,690.00 in new funds, according to
funds released by the State Department of Education. This same
department says we will lose $127,068.00 of this money in millage
rollbacks. In this increase in funds will be $133,058 for local teach-
er salary increases.
We contend that our net will be greater than the $286,022.00
according to state figures. To begin with we will roll back our
millage only 3.3 mills rather than the 4.11 computed by the state.
This is because we have .81 mills tied up by a bond issue which will
not be affected by the roll-back law., Secondly, state funds will re-
place local money now being used to hike teacher salaries, and
this local money will now be available for other purposes.
What happened to all you skeptics who didn't believe in the
groundhog a few weeks back?

things truly bring about the desir-

I think it time that we who are
parents ask ourselves and' our edu-
cators this question. \What do I
understand of the goals, the objec-
tives of our schools? What is
meant by the phrase "quality edu-
"cation"? What do I expect the
schools to teach my children? In
answer to these questions the Ed-
ucational Policies Commission of
the NEA has suggested objectives
such as: respect for individual dig-
nity, personal liberty, responsible
citizenship, instilling moral-habits
and building upright character.
These are high sounding ideals,
but how are they to be reached?
They are especially thoughtworthy
at a time when we see a lack of
respect on the part of our citizens
for others and their property, a
steady decline of moral habits,
and an "I don't care" attitude to-
ward character building on the
pait of many adults. We no longer
feel that good character and a
high degree- of personal integrity
is a prime factor in the choosing
of our public officials, leaders in
:industry arid school teachers. Nor
do many parents seen to feel a
personal responsibility for instill-
ing a respect for law and order,
honesty and personal integrity in
children, by the example and the
discipline that is set within the
This past week the Florida Legis-
lature has presented a plan'thru
which schools in our state would
receive additional monies which
would buy textbooks and other
teaching materials, build schools
and increase salaries. My question
as a parent and taxpayer asks,
will these monies for "quality edu-
cation" help to bring about the re-
sults outlined above? Are our
schools really intent on teaching
students, or are a number of our
teachers merely teaching a., sub-
ject? And if we are teaching stu-
dents, and not just subjects, what
are we dedicated to teaching them?
One of the promised results of the
confusion that has reigned in our
school system, is better teachers.
We have been told that in order
to draw "the best teachers avail-
able" we must raise the salary of
those in the profession. This sounds
logical. However it is obvious that
there are teachers in our schools
who are either physically or mor-
ally unsuited to present a teaching
situation that would tend to build
honesty or personal integrity in
the student. These teachers are out
of the classroom, protesting, right
along with the rest. What assur-
ance do we as parents have that
they will not be rehired?
I have not lived in this area long,
enough to know of specific situa-
tions that may exist in the schools
here, but I worked in a large cen-
tral Florida school system for three
and a half years prior to coming
here in August, and I witnessed
there, immorality, dishonesty, pro-
fanity, and simple lack of ability
to develop a situation in which
learning could take place. Happily,
these instances were few, but they
We are now at a place in the
progress of our educational system
where teachers and administrators
are demanding the tools that they
need in order to teach uroductive-
ly. I feel it is the duty of every
parent to, first set the example of
personal inte'ritv in our everyday
living, and then to demand that
this same example be highly con-
sidered along with the application

I say that no character reference
is requested, nor wanted, when a
teacher application is filled out.
Let me say on behalf of the tea-
chers in this county, that from
what I have seen and heard you
are working under much less de-
sirable conditions than those in
the county from which we came,
yet they have been much more vo-
cal in their protest, both ir and
out of the classroom. Too, when

all but one of his teachers did
everything possible to make life
easier for him. We as his parents
deeply appreciated this.

one request of all parents. Teach-
J1g children can be difficult un-
less the students show a desire to
cooperate. Insist that your student
show courtesy and respect for his
classroom instructors and associ-
ates, or take him (or her) out of
the public school system and put
him in a private school where the-'
are more at liberty to require dis-
cipline and attention. And insist

able of teaching a student, but are
capable of presenting a healthy
attitude of personal liberty and'

Speaks to Rotary
Rev. C. Byron Smith, pastor of
the First Baptist Church told the
Rotary Club Thursday that great
nations have privileges and the
privileges place a responsibility on
that nation in direct proportion to
its privileges. He pointed out that
other nations in the past have had
many privileges but they have fad-
ed from the scene due to the fact
that they didn't meet their respon-
Smith said that America faces
the same choice made by Patrick
Henry when he chose liberty em-
phatically as against a life of slav-
ery. "Our strength of freedom and
responsibilities must be based on
the teachings of God if we are to
survive", the pastor said.
The speaker said that God is
right and if we are on His side, we
will be right. We are not immune
from punishment, just because we
are a great nation, if we refuse to
do what is right in God's sight".
Guests of the club were Joe King
and Dr. Richard Morley of Pana-
mna City and Marion Craig.

When this statement is taken in
content with the existing law, it
requires every owner of agricul-
tural land to make a return every
year stating the use, character, and
the owner's estimate of the value
of the property. I understand that
County Agent Cubie Laird has
mailed forms to most of Gulf Coun-
ty's landowners for this- purpose.
If you have not received one, you
may call Mr. Laird or me and we
will see that one is mailed to you.
The forms are also available at the
County Tax Assessor's office. Re-
member, you must file the return
on your land by April 1 in order
to have your land zoned agricul-
tural for 1968.
The zoning board consists of the
County Commissioners as voting
members, plus the County Agent
and County Tax Assessor as non-
voting members, members. It is
the duty of this board to zone all
land in the county as either agricul-
tural or non-agricultural.
In assessing land that has been
zoned agricultural, the County Tax
Assessor may consider only suc%
factors as relate to agricultural use.
He may not consider potential
values for sub-division, industrial,
or commercial use. However, the
revised law provides that the zon.
ing board may re-zone agricultural
land as non-agricultural when there
is contiguous urban development
on two or more sides and when the
continued use of such land for agri-
cultural, purposes will interfere
with the timely and orderly expan-
sion of the community.
Uses that qualify as agricultural
under the present zoning law in-
clude horticulture, floricuture, vi-
ticulture, forestry, dairying, live-
stock or poultry production, bee-
keeping, pisciculture, and all forms
of farm production. The maintena-
