THIRTY-FIRST YEAR PORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA, 32456 THURSDAY, MARCH 21, 1968 NUMBER 29
City Notified to Make Plans
To Correct Pollution Problem
The City of Port St. Joe receiv-
ed a notice from the Florida Air
and Water.Pollution, Commission
this. week, stating that the City
'has not offered sufficient assur-
,rance that they will correct pol-
lution caused by the City's sew-
age disposal system.
Port St. Joe, along with virtual-,
.ly every city and industry in the
State was notified in December
that its sewage 'disposal system
is cuttingg out pollutants in the
'form of solids. To correct this,
the City plans to install a sec-
ondary treatment system. The
City now operates a primary sys-
tem, the same as 90% of the ci-
ties of the State.
Commissioner. Bob Fox said
that he was in Jacksonville last
week (home base of the Air and
Water Pollution Commission)
'and told.them the City had en-
gaged an'engineering firmh to be-
gin work on solving the problem.
The December warning had
given the City 90 days to begin
taking steps toward coming up
with a plan for solution. Fox said
evidently the City's engineers,
also of Jacksonville, apparently
had not notified the Commission
that they had been engaged by
the City for solving of the pol-
The original citation to the
City pointed out that the City
was "disposing of primary ef-
fluent which does not provide
adequate waste treatment".
The document also stated that
"within 90 days of receipt of
this notice, you shall furnish evi-
dence of engineer retention and
evidence of corrective procedure
and schedule for construction of
The City has complied with
the first. portion of the "shall
do's", but engineers have not yet
had enough time to provide an
acceptable corrective procedure.
Plans of the City are to pro-
ceed with construction of a pri-
mary sewage disposal system.
They had embarked on this pro-
ject even before the notice from
the State Committee came in

Brock Apprises Commission
Of Changes In Tax Laws
City Auditor and Clerk, Char-
les Brock reported to the City
Commission Tuesday night that
the Comptroller of the State
of Florida has made sweeping
changes in the taxing procedure
of cities in the State of Florida.
Brock, along with other audi-
tors and clerks in the State, was
called to Orlando last week by
Comptroller Fred Dickinson, to
explain the new requiremerits,
under new state laws.
Brock said that one of the
changes made is that cities must
certify their tax rolls and pro-.
posed budgets with the Comptrol-
ler, just as the county must do,
for acceptance or rejection.
The reason for this new move,
.is. to be certain that cities are
properly assessing property at
values approved by the-state, and
to police the new 10. mill limit
Brock reported that if the city
doesn't put forth full effort un-
der state guidelines to adequate-
ly finance its own operations,'
then penalties will be applied
by withholding a portion of the
city's share iji cigarette taxes.
Brock said that he anticipates'
no problems, since he has fol-
loeved valuations set by thq coun-
ty wherever he .could, and the
county has met with no displea-
sure from the Comptroller on its
Another change in the tax law
pertaining to the city, is that
business houses must now de-
clare their inventories and per-
sonal 'property (fixtures, :equip-
ment, etc.) In the past, both of
these categories have been leump-
ed under "personal property"
for city taxing purposes. The rea-
son for, the change, is that inven-
tory taxing is now done at a dif-
ferent rate than personal proper-
The Clerk said that he 'had
hand delivered forms to local
businesses to fill out for the new
taxing program and has request-
ed them back by April 1.

Insurance Company presented a
plan of insurance to the Commis-
sion Tuesday night to give cover-
age for all City employees and
T h e presentation provided
for life insurance, hospital in-
surance, disability payment and
various other benefits.
The Commission asked for
time to study the plan and take
it up with their employees.
CHIEF TO MEETING
It was unanimously voted, at
the suggestion of Commissioner
Tom Coldewey, that Chief of Po-
lice H. W. Grifin be sent to Or-

use of new police tools.
The purpose of the police
school is to train police in the
use of new tools, approved by

Let's Protect Our "B
One of the favorite subjects for worry these days is
the condition' of tlhe dollar and how possible erosion of
'this monetary yardstick may affect us personally.
One of the biggest tops' of conversation, is "how
did we get in this fix and how do we correct'it?"
The President has proposed several points of action
designed to strengthen the dollar and stop the outward
flow of U. S. currency to other nations. 'These are the
dollars that are turning up 'at the London, Paris and
Swiss gold exchange centers for redemption in gold. We
have "bought foreign'" on credit and our creditors., are
now collecting their debts.
So, while we blame DeGaulle for starting the run on
U. S. gold, we have nobody to blame but ourselves for ,al-
lowing enough money to flow out of this country to gnaw
away at, ard finally deplete our gold reserve.
In a recent column by John Chamberlain he noted the
puny measures 'to'conserve the dollar--notably the tax
'placed against tourists for traveling abroad and spending
too much money. But Chamberlain goes on to quote in-
stance after instance of government spending policies
which have ;served to put us in this,mess. One contract
for jet engines would cause us to lose more than $7 bil-
lion on the balance of payments. And there were other
instances of purchasing abroad, when there are tax-pay-
ing American businesses ready and willing to provide the
same services at no danger to the U. S. gold supply. ,
And it might also be pointed out that Americans
can't buy the U. S. hoard of gold only foreigners.
We can draw a parallel here and liken Port St. Joe
to the United States. The positions are about the, same.,
.Th-re is a lIt of business here in Port St. Joe. People'

You might say Port St. Joe faces a "gold crisis". We

tion to insure that things go on as near normal as possible.
This is possible. Port St. Joe still has d good economic
basis. We must just stop ... assess our balance oi pay-
ments ... try to stem our gold outflow. ... and consider
the future of our own community over and above the econ-
omy of our neighboring communities.
In other words "if you'll try to buy in Port St.
Joe first", we will maintain a vibrant economy.

A NEW EXPERIENCE
We think that it is time for the people of Port St. Joe
to put on their spring and summer smile .. get a. bounce
in our walk assume a cheery attitude and ooze friend-
liness especially to strangers.
Port St. Joe enters a new era this spring and summer.
The new position isn't entirely foreign to ourpeople, but
thd range of "tourist center" is a-fixing to broaden to
proportions not yet experienced by us. And the test
will be whether we can cope with our new-found "industry"
r The weather is a-warming and we see advertisements
for tents, campers, trailers, camping gear on the Dothan
and Tallahassee TV stations. This means that our state
:park here in Port St. Joe is' in for its first full season of
operation. We are now open for the best camping part
'Of the year, and the park people say it will go beyond any
expectations we may have.
While we realize that ,Port St. Joe has a fine new
state park nearby, we don't realize just how many people
will be using it. We must realize, too, that the park has
competition. If park visitors come to our town and see
an unwelcome attitude a sour attitude we will
not grow very fast as a state park center. If we are
.cordial, ebullient, and interested, we will draw the same
people back again and again.
As we say, this is a new experience for us. Let us
all rise to the occasion.
FIREBUG IN THE BASEMENT
Representative Thomas B. Curtis of Missouri put the
tax and public debt problem in a nutshell when he said
that it is "clearly a requirement of national policy to-
day", to establish priorities among desirable expenditures,
"even needed'expenditures, so as not to over-burden the
tax and debt structures and weaken the economic base."
To meet the cost of not planning public spending, the
people are threatened with more taxes. Higher taxes
would mean that all of us would.have less money to spend.
Using this mthod to slpw inflation while government goes
on' spending like an irresponsible drunk makes no more
sense than pouring water oh the roof of a house on fire
while pouring oil into the basement. As Representative
Curtis points out, it is clearly a requirement today to es-
tablish priorities on tax expenditures and bring spending'
into line with income, instead of taxing the people and
business to the point ,of diminishing returns. This is a
cold-blooded, nonpartisan issue that must be faced.'
Why? In ,other. areas natives had
never experienced any form of
heart trouble, cancer or malaria.

petent research teams could go

Sales, Use Tax Take
17% Over Last Year
Fred 0. (Bud) Dickinson, Jr.,
Comptroller of Florida, this week
said sales and use tax collections
last month totaled $30,175,175, a
$4,407,810 increase over collections
reported in February of last year.
"Although it is a little early to
report anything concrete, this 17
percent increase in February col-
lections is an indication that the
recent school crisis did not harm
Florida's booming economy," Dick-
"There is no doubt that there
will be some long-range implica-
tions brought on by the crisis, be-
cause of the national publicity, but
it is clear that the teacher walkout
was not successful in stopping our
economy. It is still growing and
v;ill remain sound and prosperous,",
Fiscal year (July-February) col-
lections currently amount to $213,-
559,683, representing an increase
of $18,707,200, or 9.6 percent above
the total collected during a like
period of the 1966-67 fiscal year.
Calendar year collections of the
sales and use tax now amount to
$62,386,125, for an increase of $5,-

So what do we have in Bobby. First we have a man who swore
to stay out of the race until 1972. We have a man who has only

Senator McCarthy into tossing his hat in the ring and then jump-

All in all, we are expected to fall head over heels to place a

they? Think of the hundreds who died in the experiment for the

in the papers Monday where the gold speculators who had set out
to erode our dollar were hit by losses on the gold market. We
just can't work up a feeling regret for their situation.
Startling figures were released last week concerning crime
in our nation. For instance crime increased 23% in one year in
the big cities. But the increase is not limited to the metropolitan
areas. Towns the size of Port St. Joe reflected a 13% increase.
Larger urban areas are showing a 17% increase in crime.
If, for instance, Port St. Joe had 20 crimes last year (This is
a fairly accurate figure) and two more crimes are reported this
year, we have had 4 10% increase.
One of the major increases in petty crimes in our city is
the crime of shoplifting-especially -by kids. This crime has
reached alarming proportions right here in Port St. Joe. No
merchant has been immune, and the problem is growing like
wildfire. One merchant reported to me that he had caught
nearly 20 cases of shoplifting in his store during the first two
months of this 'year. He shuddered to think of how many cases
he had not caught. Statistics say that less than a fourth of the
shoplifters are caught,
So if we want to do something about the rising national crime
rate, we can. If your child shows up with something you don't
recognize as being his, investigate to see where it came from.
It may be stolen.

Deaths From Emphysema On The Rise In Florida
Emphysema is on the rise in
Florida, according to the State
Board of Health, and today ranks
seventh among the leading causes
of death. In 1967 there were 1,318
deaths from the disease. There
were only 433 deaths in 1957 when
it ranked 13th. '
"The exact causes of emphysema
are not well understood," Dr.
James E. Fulghum, director of the
State'Board of Health's Bureau of
Adult Health and Chronic Diseases,
saifd. "But there are a number of
factors that are strongly suspected
of contributing to the disease."
These are reported exposure to
lung irritants, dust, molds, noxious
fumes, allergic materials, air pol-
lution, heredity and cigarette smok-
ing., Other respiratory diseases,
such ,as bronchitis, asthma, silico-
sis and chronic pulmonary diseases
are also caused by many of these

The disease is about 13 times
more prevalent among cigarette
smokers than among nonsmokers.
It "has been determined that most
sufferers are men over 40 years of
age who have a medical history of

troubles and who are heavy smok-

April 1 May Be Important Date for
Citizens Who Are 65 and Over
April 1, 1968, may be an import-
ant date in the lives of people who

Myers 'explained that just about

whether retired or still working.
He urged persons 65 and over and

if anyone has delayed filing a med-

should not let the April 1 deadline
go by without taking some action.
He can now file a claim even if
the doctor bill is not paid. All that
is necessary is an itemized bill and
a completed claim form. The So-

LESS THA NA DIME
Now you can rid yourself of the Cinderella
drudgery of oven cleaning-even without the help
of a fairy godmother. Never again must you cope
with the mess of oven-cleaners, brushes, rubber
gloves, sponges and buckets. ,
Instead, you simply latch the door on those spatteTs and
spills, set a dial ... and your oven comes clean electrically.
Sides, top, bottom, racks and drip pan gleam like new for
less than a dime's worth of electricity!
Need we say more? Except to suggest 'that you see the self-
cleaning electric oven soon-at your appliance dealer's. He'll
also show you flameless units that guard against scorching
and boiling over, precision controls, rotisserie broilers-all the
marvels of modern electric cooking!
Reddy can't turn a pumpkin into a coach-yet. But every year
electricity does more and more for you.

Increase for March
Florida Fred O. (Bud) Dickinson,
Jr., this week reported that reve-
nue from Florida's racing ., tax
poured a record-setting $4.4 million
into the state's 67 counties during
"The previous record racing tax
distribution to the counties was in
April, 1965, when $3.9 million was
divided, up," Dickinson said.
SThe unusually large racing tax
distribution, made possible by Feb-
ruary gate receipts, netted each
county $65,000, or an increase of
$11,60'0 ,bove each county's share
in March of last year.
So far this racing -season, which
started in November, 1967, the
per-county. allocation has climbed
to $199,000, as compared to $182,-
000 in the same period of 1966-S7.-
a $17,000 increase for each county.

You know they cost less, but you don't think
they're as good as the nationally famous brands?
Well, we can't speak for all super market brands,
but we can tell you there is one
that's as good as the nationally famous brands.
Yes, that's right... the A&P Brand.
Prove it, you say.
All right, take our A&P Frozen Vegetables in Butter Sauce.
They're prepared only from Grade "A" vegetables,
the best...you can't use better.
The butter sauce is made from 93 score butter.
And you can't buy a higher score butter.
Quality like this is typical of every product that bears the A&P Seal.
.You see, A&P Brand products have everything
the nationally' famous brands have... except the higher price.
Since the A&P Brand can be bought only at A&P,
shouldn't A&P be your store? I

As conservation becomes a more
important topic nowadays with in-
creasing dangers in air and water
pollution, the forester finds he has
more than a casual interest.
Healthy forests are a key-not
merely to lumber, pulp and paper
production-but to conservation
Three out of every five acres in
the state are classed as forest
land. And while nine other states
in the nation surpass Florida in
total forest area, Florida ranks
sixth in the nation in-total com-
mercial forest area-land capable
of producing continuous crops of
timber for commercial purposes.
The forest and wood products in-
dustry in Florida today ranks sec-
ond only to tourism in annual dol-
lar value. Actually forest industry
within' the Sunshine State is now
the largest single industry convert-
ing a -natural resource.
While tree farmers in Florida
note a near 200 per cent increase
during the past 20 years, it is es-
timated the demand for forest raw
materials will again double within
the next two decades.
With some four million cords of
timber now removed from Florida
forests annually, reforestation--
planting of more seedling trees-
must not be relaxed. The 100 mil-
lion new trees planted yearly in
Florida are but a step toward three
future needs, conservation, econ-
omy and industry.
