THE STAR. Peal St. JQOe, P
THURSDAY, MAY 29, 1969
It hardly seems "possible that, already, it is time -to
push the Seniors out of the nest and let them begin to
make their mark in the world. Graduation is next week
and it's time for the usual platitudes about "inheriting the
.world" and qtern warnings about the coldness and indiffer-
ence that will be the lot of the graduating Seniors. It's
enough to scare a body to death and, no doubt, causes
no few moments of misgivings on the part of the Seniorm
until they get into the swirl of things and find out it's more
or less like school; there's "no sweat" for the one who
tries and no future for the one who doesn't.
It's certain the Seniors face a challenging world; a
world that holds more rewards for effort and dedication
than ever before in history. The future should be rosy
for those who wish to try to take advantage of the oppor-
'tunities afforded them. ,
It's with some misgivings that we think on the bright
if demanding future ahead. We must stop and think that
most of this crop of Seniors have never seen a cow milked..
They have never had to cut wood to start fire in the
morning. Most have never seen a wood stove work nor tast-
ed the victuals these stoves and their operators could
turn out.- We doubt seriously if any of them have ever
drawn or pumped a bucket of water from a well. Most'
have never seen a horse do anything but .carry a man or
For the last 29 years (our length of abode in Port
St. Joe) we have heard that now well-worn record,
"there's nothing to do in this little old town". We know
you have heard it too. As a matter of fact, both you and
this writer have probably uttered these same words at
one time or another ourselves.
The odd part of it is, that we can feel this way and
express these sentiments all we want to and things won't
change. We are now convinced that the only way to bring
about change is to actively do something about it. This
brings about a different complexion of things, though,
It appears as if the people of this area are going to
have the opportunity Jto prove if they really want "some-
thing to do" or if they are happy in their present state so
they can have something to complain about.
During the past 10 to 15 years this "nothing to do"
record has gained a companion in the "what we need is a
good golf course a;nd country club" record. This platter,
like the "we have nothing to do" disc, has received consid-
erable work-out. As a matter of fact, it is getting a bit
All of this "golf course" wishing has received the
' help of a few hands, willing to work, though, and the
- course and country club is right hereat the tip of our fin-
gers. It is an attainable possibility. All we have to do
to make this dream come true is to write a check f9r
$125.00 and send it, to the St Joseph's Bay Country Club
'in care of B. A. Pridgeon, Jr., 'and the golf course and
country club will materialize, just like that. I

Woman on its back, nor ridden in a horse or mule-drawn
wagon. Probably none have ever picked cotton.
TVissing all of these things, we believe, has been to
the detriment of the culture of the Seniors. But, like us
all, they have grown up in a new environment. This age
in the last 20 years has probably done more. to change
man's way of living than any period since the iron age be-
gan. The last 20 years has had more effect on our way
of living than the invention df the electric light, automo-
bile and airplane combined. They tell us. that all of this
will be for the good of man. He can now realize more ful-
ly than ever before, just what the' "good life" is.
With such an upheaval in our way of living in such,
a short time, it is no wonder that they are frustrated. It
is no wonder that so many are "trying to find themselves".
The fact that some appear to be "lost" merely underscores
the capability of the vast majority. Those who appear
"lost" are either not trying or are looking in the wrong
It's true that every generation looks on an uncertain
future. But with all of its uncertainty, we can say with-
out hesitation that we had rather be facing the future of
our graduating Seniors than any future faced by any gen-,
eration in the past. We know they will meet the challenge.

The money is available to build the entire course and
club and all of its attendant facilities such as a swimming
pool, kid's play ground, shuffle board court, and many
other facilities that can be utilized by everyone.
We would like to stress the point that this is not a
case of you putting up your money and thus increasing the
chance that the installation will be built. This is a guar-
ahtee that it will be built. The lendor of the money, the
Farmer's Home Administration, is not going to furnish
the need capital unless the people prove they will support
the venture by putting up a little money of their dwn. It
doesn't work that way. This is one thing the Fedral Gov-
renment doesn't force on anyone.
The point to be decided within the next two or three
weeks is, do we really want "something t6 do" badly
enough to put tip a little money or do we wish merely to
continue with our age-old habit of griping about nothingg,
to do in this little old place"?,

$62 Million Surplus
Future Should Be Rosy
'In State Budget
Tallahassee Comptroller Fre
0. (Bud) Dickinson, Jr., today sai
there will be an estimated $62 mi
lion surplus in state's budget Jun
30 when the 1967-69 biennium ends
Dickinson, the state's chief fiscal
officer, credited the surplus fund
to the good fiscal management o
the State Budget Commission un
der the Governor and the Cabinet
"There is no doubt, that th
Cabinet has acted as a proper s"fe
guard of state' government expendi

funds is an indication' of what i
would cost the taxpayers of Floird;
to change the system," Dickinson
The Comptrbller said that ac
cording to a Budget Commission
estimate there will be a surplus o
$12 million in the General Revenue
tund when all bills are paid June

Added to this, Dickinson said
there will be -$50 million in thi
Working Capital Fund which is
held in reserve by the state.
"In the past 12 months, we were
able to bring in more than $10 mil
lion for the state by investing sur
plus funds in time deposits and
short-term U. S. Treasury bills,'
Dickinson pointed out.
Total Funds available for the

ie I really think that what you people need is a new editor .
s. one that is on the ball, awake to the opportunities that come his
al way and so forth.
Is A good indication of our lack of grasping opportunities came
If up last Wednesday night at the Big 10 camp up on the Brothers
n- River. I was up there at a Boy Scout meeting concerning financial
t. matters for the coming year. 'Governor Claude Kirk came to the
meeting about 7:30 and we had 10 to 15 minutes to talk to the qov-
e ernor. I sat right there and let the opportunity slip by. I should
.- have been on the ball and approached the Governor about remov-
i- ing the four-lane funds from Highway 90 and spending them on our
s Highway 98.
t Now that 1-10 seems to be coming to the forefront and its con-
a struction now a good bet to go ahead to completion, it seems like
n a complete waste of good road money to four-lane Highway 90, which
runs almost parallel with 1-10.
With the opening of 1-10, it will most surely draw most of the
tourist traffic from our part of the state. With a four-laning of
d Highway 98, we could hold our own.
Even with the four-laning of 98, we will retain a secondary
e route to South Florida. We will naturally continue to draw the
growing host of tourists who vacation in this area every year. 1-10
will still be closet to South Florida from many areas. It will be lim-
d ited access, expediting the flow of traffic more than a four-lane 98.
e But the fact that Highway 98 is the seashore scenic drive will al-
s low this section of Florida, with a fast-growing tourist-oriented
economy, to continue to play a major part in Florida's number one

- The conversation Wednesday night drifted around to the fact
- that drink cans thrown into the river wouldn't rust away and were
d now a pollutant. Governor Kirk observed that it costs the State
highway Department the price of a full case of beer to pick up one
beer can from off the highway shoulder. So, if you are complaining
e about your taxes, 'and throwing your drink cans out of the car as
- you ride along, do yourself a favor and don't.

The Gulf County Board of
Commissioners unanimously ap-
proved a motion made by Walter
Graham Tuesday night to employ
Florida Engineering Associates
of Port St. Joe on a retainer ba-
sis to serve as the County's en-
gineering firm. This matter has
been under, discussion by the
Board for some time and was
finally approved Tuesday night.
A working agreement between
the county and the firm will be
drawn up at a later date.
Commissioner Graham also
suggested that the County con-
sider installation of two way
radios in all equipment operated
by the County Road Department
and the Mosquito Control De-
partment. If the suggestion is
approved it will be included in
next year's budget.
The Board had planned to dis-
cuss the budget Tuesday night,
but put the matter off due to
the late hour.
- The Board passed a resolution
I ~ 1 1i31
Tuesday night to send to Gulf 'A
County's delegation in the State
Legislature asking their support
in designating the seventh cent
gasoline tax to be given to the
counties of the state for road>
building purposes. The local
Board has long supported this
move and the State Association
of County Commissioners is now
working to get the measure pas-
sed in the current session.
Civil Defense Director A. P.
Jackson, Dewitt Dalton, Richard
Lancaster, and M. L. Britt pre-
sented a community shelter plan.
to the Board. The plan has been
prepared by Civil Defense with
the aid of the state agency.
