Jax Firm Hired to
Make A Study of
The Gulf County School Board
hired a consulting firm, Florida
Utilities Service, of Jacksonville to
investigate its utilities charges at
the regular meeting of the Board
The Board has become concern-
ed with rising utility costs, partic-
ularly gas and electricity through-
out the system, and hired the firm'
to try and determine why.
Rising utility costs were also cit-
ed by the Gulf County Grand Jury
in its presentments released last
Friday, but, according to Sutperin-
tendent Marion Craig, the School
Board has for some time been con-
cerned about the rising costs.
The firm was hired on the basis
of the School system's utility ex-
penditures and a percentage of any
savings that might be made over
a period of one year.
A progress report was presented
Tuesday from architect Norman P.
Gross onF the new school buildings

Plans Being Made for
Summer Play Program
Members of the Port St. Joe City
Commission met with Gulf County
School Board officials yesterday
morning to begin laying plans for
a cooperative summer recreation
program for youths to be sponr
scored, financed and directed by
both the City and the School Board.
The School Board usually runs
a summer recreation program for
the younger children, but the is
thinking about joining in the pro-
gram this year to make a larger
program to reach more children.
The City is planning to hire a
coordinator for the expanded sum-
mer play program and to furnish
other temporary persons to assist
in the application of a summer
recreation plan to coincide with
the school's usual activities.
The program will include swim-
ming, tennis, golf, arts, crafts and
City and School officials will
meet again next Wednesday morn-
ing at 9:30 a.m. to further plans

Butler Addresses Chamber Meeting
Gordon Butler, Eexcutive Secre-
tary of the Florida League of Mu-
nicipalities, of Jacksonville, was
the speaker at the first of what is
to be a monthly meeting of mem-
bership of the port St. Joe-Gulf
County Chamber of Commerce.
The first Monday gatherings are
being held at the Stac House here
in Port St. Joe beginning at 9:00

Cecil Hewett to Head
Cecil Hewett of Port St. Joe has
been designated Gulf County Co-
ordinator of the George Wallace
for President campaign, it was an-
nounced this past week end.
Hewett says that campaign head-
quarters will be set up in Port St.
Joe and organization meetings to
lay groundwork for the campaign
will be announced in the near fu.
Butler used the needs of the ci.
ties as the theme of his talk.
"The greatest needs of the cit-
ies are roads", the speaker said.
"Everybody gets around on auto-
mobiles using fuel, but neither of-
fers any tax revenue to cities", he
said. Butler acknowledged 'that
both automobiles and gasoline are
heavily taxed by the state, but
none of the revenue returns di-
rectly to the cities.
The speaker also spoke of the
taxing base of the cities of Flor-
ida. The ad valorem tax is the
main source of revenue, along with
utility taxes. Only the cities and
counties may assess the ad valor-
em tax on property.
Butler stressed a great need for
a re-distribution of present taxes
to alleviate city needs or a new
source be found. "Many of the lar-
ger cities are in trouble due to an
inadequate tax base", the speaker
said. "Taxes are going up and up
and still the people demand more
and more services."
Butler pointed out that present-
ly 80% of taxes paid are paid by
urban dwellers with the remaining
20% paid by suburban dwellers.

Grand Jury Files Report On Schools
The Gulf County Grand Jury completed an investi-
gation of the Gulf County School System on Friday of last
week and offered their findings in presentments. In order
that citizens may have the full story of the Grand Jury
findings, the text of the presentments are printed here for
readers of The Star.

The Grand Jury finds that the
walkout by school personnel was
a concerted effort by most school
personnel to attempt to point out
deficiencies in the school system
which had existed for many years.
A majority of the teachers in Gulf
County were not militant or cali-
cious, but were conscientious, de-
dicated people who felt that they
were right. The teachers of Gulf
County who walked out conscien-
tiously felt that conditions existed,
not necessarily in Gulf County, but
throughout the school system of
Florida, which warranted the pub-
lic.s attention, and that this was
the most effective method of
bringing the sub-standard condi-
tiozis existing in the schools to the
general public's attention.
The Grand Jury, however, finds
that the Florida Educational Asso-
ciation irresponsibly directed the
teachers of Gulf County to walk
out, when they did, and in the
manner they did. The Florida Edu-
cational Association led the teach-
ers to violate their contract and
enter into a concerted effort to
close the schools, in an illegal and
irresponsible fashion. The Florida
Educational Association failed to

Legislature had done for educa-

A Good Place To Live
We've been hearing a lot of talk lately along the lines,
"Ah-,h-h there's nothing to this little old town. Nothing
to offer nothing to do no future".
We suppose this has been said about every town in
the United States with a population under 25,000. "Just
a hick town with nothing to offer." ;
It seems that we have assumed this attitude so long
now, that we are- beginning to believe it.
It's'true that our city doesn't offer everything that
a town of 25,000 or 50,000 offers. We don't have some
of the facilities, the educational offerings, the recreational
tools, some of the fine buildings, etc. It's true. But, then
tell me a town the size of Port St. Joe that has as much
or more to offer. Probably there are a few; but their
numbers are slight and the things they provide can't be
too much more than is offered by our City.
We've looked at the negative side too long, now. Let's
take a peek at the positive side of our city.
First, our city offers good.payrolls to its breadwinners.
Port St. Joe offers one- of the highest per-capita incomes
of. any city in the state. If we don't use it wisely and pru-
dently, it's our fault as individuals, not the' fault of the
city or the, area. Port St. Joe's prosperity is evidenced
by the fact that there are two cars parked at nearly every
home in town. (Maybe this is the cause of our financial
Woes we moan about). Port St. Joe,is a city of fine homes.
Most towns have a few fine homes, but Port St. Joe has
block after block of nice dwellings.
Our city is well kept and clean. One of the first things
strangers to the city notice is the beauty and cleanli-
ness :of the -city especially the blooming flowers on the
city approaches. But, familiarity breeds contempt, and
we citizens probably never notice and appreciate these

ties as good dr "better than any other City our size.

Mike. About the only lack in the recreational area, is fa-
cilities for older folks. ,Our City even offers a fine build-
ing for youth recreation, which is rarely used for that
purpose .anymore.o .
People work 45 to 50 weeks a. year, jyus to get to spend
a vacation at the seashore. We have the seashore right
at opr doorstep, seldom realizing that it's there for our use.

ter at the present size is up to you. What have you as a
citizen. done lately' to maIke jour City et How loyal
are you to its present and future; its growth?,,
We think it's time to stop belly-aching about our City
and begin to hunt ways to make it better ourselves.
The Cost of 'Permissiveness
From here to Brooklyn, New York, is a "far piece"
even as the crow flies, to use the vernacular. But the im-
pact of a court case filed in Brooklyn hits right close to
A businessman in Brooklyn was looted and burned out
,during the recent riots in the wake of Martin Luther King's
-murder. And he has sued the city of New York for $250,-
'000, claiming negligence. The storeowner contends that
'the police were under official orders to be permissive about
the whole affair, and that no responsible effort was made
to protect his property and place of business. This will
be a noteworthy case, -and the pocketbooks of every Amer-
ican, citizen right -across the country from Brooklyn to
here are going-to be affected by the decision.
Why? First off, the cop on the beat in any neighbor-
hood is a good witness. He's a family man with children,
taxes, and neighbors. And he's disciplined to follow or-
ders.. Even an idiot knows that in city after city across
this land, the local police were under very heavy wraps
during the so-called "disorders". And those cops are just
not going to "cop any pleas" when it comes time to talk
about the affair in court. If there. was negligence, even
negligence ordained from on high, in rendering the pro-
tection that the businessman has been paying taxes to
finance, the cop on the witness stand is going to say so.
Suppose this Brooklyn' businessman wins his suit -
against the City of New York. Well, there are another two
or three hundred merchants who suffered similar or equal

If the politicians can be found negligent, then the tax-
payers are going to have to pay some fantastic repara-
tions. And because no city has the kind of money in-
volved, it will have to find other sources of income to
underwrite its normal operations while it pays the judg-

LIFE BEGINS AT 40?
In its day, one of the best sellers among nonfiction
books was Life Begins at Forty by Walter Pitkin. The
eagerness of the public to own this book indicates that the
majority of people in their 40's are perplexed about their
I don't think Pitkin proved that life begins at 40 any
more than at 20 or 50. Life begins every day, and the
future of any individual s fairly definitely indicated long
before he reaches 40.
In my opinion, life may be said to begin at 40 in a
sense not suggested by Pitkin.
By the time a man is 40, he should have built up a
philosophy of life that should be his most priceless pos-
session. Without such a philosophy, riches, if he has
them, will be a mockery, and poverty will be unsupportable.
But if he has come to understand that strain and not
stability is the foremost aspect of civilization, he will
cease to expect from life something that is never offered.
He will meet each day fearlessly and will extract from it
what he can. At 40 he will enjoy compensations that were

Mr. and Mrs. Bill Laird and

there they attended the annual
Ellzey homecoming in memory of
the town's founder and first pas-

Rev. Robert Ellzey.
My father truly lived a long,
happy, and useful life, a very
rewarding life; rewarding not
only because of his accomplish-

the benefits he contributed to
his community and the good he
was enabled to do for others.
Some of your readers might be
interested to know that my fa-

my son, William C. Forehand, of

I enjoy reading The Star and
keeping abreast of the develop-

to express appreciation for the
editorial position taken by, The
Star, in regard to local affairs'
of civic interest, for its high
moral tone, and also for its as-:

as local political matters.
As I have some holdings in
Highland View and have many
friends there, I am quite inter-
ested in its activities and devel-

can to help promote the progress-
of Highland View and the com-

All good wishes to you, Mr.

All one reads in the papers these days-other than the Viet-
nam War and the Presidential hopefuls-is the plight of the poor,
the poverty stricken, the underprivileged. We think it's commend-
able that a nation so rich have compassion for the less fortunate.
But we think it unfortunate that we have such a fettish for every-
one in our nation who does not come up to our set standards of pros-
perity. There is a great difference-which encompasses a lot of
us-between being prosperous and being poor. As we -see it, the
politicians are becoming concerned with making everyone pros-
perous at the cost of the taxpayer.
We read a lot these days about the so-called march of the
poor on Washington. What we would' like to know is how peo-
ple who are supposedly poor spend so much time marching-how
do they afford it? But maybe that's the reason they are poor.
We read in one of our exchange papers where the marchers are
having trouble digging up enough mules and wagons for the march.
The editor suggested that the marchers just go ahead and use
Here lately the papers have been filled with stories of star-
vation in a number of counties across the U.S. Some of these areas
of starvation are here in Northwest Florida. The starvation comes
about by a diet of greens, peas, cornbread, syrup, gravy, potatoes,
etc. But on the other hand, if you talk to the multitude of mis-
placed farm boys right here in Port St. Joe about good eating, and
they fondly recall the greens, cornbread, hot biscuits, gravy, fat-
back, syrul, grits, peas, etc. What has been labeled as starvation
may be a case of malnutrition because of the refusal of following
a proper diet. Not everyone likes brussels sprouts, carrots, celery,
frozen poultry, and the like. There may even ,be those who do not
like corn on the cob, although I can't imagine who it might be.
I don't eat those foods such as hot biscuits, fat back, gravy, po-
tatoes, grits, 'etc, too often. But the reason is, I would get as big
as a barrel if I did so.
Getting back to this- poverty thing; we believe too much of
our so-called "poverty" is caused not so much from inadequate
income as it is from inadequate inclination to work. Too many
on the poverty rolls are there because they can now make more
for not working than they can for working at the jobs they can
get. And this type person can get the lower paid jobs only be.
cause he can't be depended upon to perform the better jobs.
We were reading the other day where the biggest cost to in.
dustry today is the worker who doesn't show up for work on
Monday after having the week end off.
In our Training Union lesson Sunday night we studied the
working habits of the Hebrews. We noticed that Paul wrote, in
essence, "he who eats must work". And we also remember a say.
ing of Mr. Ball we agree with those who work should have
more than those who don't.

When a worker's tips amount to
$20.00 or more in a month in the
course of work for one employer,
these tips must be reported. The
employee must furnish a written
report to his employer by the 10th
of the month after the tips were
received. The employer then re-
ports these cash tips, as well as
the wages paid, to Internal Reve-
nue Service. The employer, how-
ever, does not have to match the
social security tax on these, tips as
he does with wages.
The inclusion of these tips with
other earnings will raise average
earnings under social security, on
which benefits are figured, and
this means better protection and

While it hurts to lose, who could feel too badly
when he received 1540 votes of confidence, out of
a total of 3376 votes cast, in the County of his
birth, without making an active campaign.
My sincere congratulations to my opponent,
Mr. Cecil G. Costin, Jr., on an excellent race and
may I reassure him, his active supporters, and
those who voted for him, of my continued friend-
ship and very best wishes in all things. I particu-
larly wish to express my appreciation for the large
vote I received in North Port St. Joe for, while I
did not carry the precinct, it is obvious that past
misunderstandings have been erased forever. I
especially wish to thank those good friends who
actively supported and worked in my behalf.
May the Good Lord bless the all of you.
