Group Heads off Aquatic
Preserve Status for Bay
A group of Port St. Joe and Gulf County civic, business and government leaders
were successful Tuesday, at least temporarily, in securing a reprieve for Gulf County in
designating St. Joseph Bay as an aquatic preserve by the State of Florida. Nine Port St.
Joe men and other people with land holdings along St. Joseph Bay appeared before the
State Cabinet to oppose a plan by a state government committee to include St. Joseph
Bay in a group of 25 areas to be designated aquatic preserves which must remain in their
natural state with the exception of allowing dredging of established shipping channels.

he expressed concern of the Com-
mission that a hearing had not

ment of Natural Resources toget

fore a final decision was made.
Rish saidl that based on informa-
tion now available to the Board
it was unanimously opposed to
the designation being given to
George G. Tapper, representing
land owners on the Bay, pointed
out that action on St. Joseph's
Bay should be delayed so the
state's proposal could be studied
carefully. Tapper pointed out
Cabinet to turn down the request
by the committee to designate
St. Joseph Bay as an aquatic pre-
serve. "We have an economy bas-
ed on water commerce and manu-
facturing, and we are hoping that
we will experience growth in
these areas. If you shut down our
development of the Bay, we may
just as well disband the Cham-
ber of Commerce and reconcile
ourselves to remaining a small
town on the Gulf of Mexico".

meeting in support of Port St.
Joe's position were Bob Fox, T.
S. Coldewey, Frank Pate, Joe Par-
rott, James T. McNeill, Pick Hil-

Fiscal Year Ended
City Auditor and Clerk report-
ed to the Board Tuesday night
that the City ended its fiscal
year in good financial shape on
September 30. Brock reported
that $140,000 was carried over
to the new budget. It was an-
ticipated that $118,000 would be
carried over and had been fig-
ured into the new budget.
The increase in expected car-
ryover came about due to receiv-
ing unexpected money from a
Federal grant which wasn't bud-
geted last year and several plan-
ned expenditures that were not
made. The City expected to have
to transfer nearly $74,000 to the
water department last year and
wound up transferring only about
half that much.
The lion's share of the carry-
over was planned to help finance
the City's proposed new sewage
disposal plant which it must be-
gin by next year.

Oppose Aquatic Preserve
We thought the matter was dead, but here is the
aquatic preserve project rising again, from out of no-
where to haunt us once again.
Last Thursday, without any warning, a state officials
committee agreed upon a program of establishing aquatic
preserves throughout the state (including all of St. Jo-
seph's Bay) and presented it to the State Cabinet Tuesday
of this week. This is being written prior to Tuesday, so
we don't know what the Cabinet will do with the propo-
We know what we wish they would do with it.
There are two things we don't like about this aquatic
preserve proposal. We don't like the whole idea, but two
things make us dislike the proposal even more.
First, we don't like the secrecy and the haste with
which the preserve was thought up in the first place, nor
do we like the matter being approved by a committee
without notice to the areas concerned and brought before
the Cabinet in a time-table which virtually eliminates any
organized protest because of lack of time to organize.
This just doesn't seem right especially so since
we were assured at the conception of the aquatic preserve
program that we affected areas would be notified and
given a chance to be heard before the matter went any
farther. That was one promise not kept.
The second thing that we don't like about the whole
thing is what it will do to the future of Port St. Joe.
Port St. Joe is just beginning to see growth and
promise in the water commerce business. More and more,
dry cargo is going over the local docks and with the re-
opening of the oil docks by Hess Oil Company, it stands
to reason that the petroleum traffic through the local
harbor will increase also. The increase may.reach the
point where expansion would be needed in the port fa-
As we read the aquatic preserve proposal and pro-
hibitions we will not be able to experience any growth in
our harbor facilities. The' aquatic preserve stipulates that
the water areas affected by the designation will not be
changed in any manner, except for dredging and main-
tenance of any existing shipping channels. That lets out
dredging a basin, driving piling, filling in behind a dock
or building finger piers out into the Bay. We will be
stuck, regardless of the opportunities we may have thrust
upon us to grow,
If another large industry were to decide to locate
here and required water frontage to dump used liquids,
and to ship its product, the designation of St. Joseph Bay
as an aquatic preserve would send the industry elsewhere.
Where does that leave us, an industry town?
Even with present stringent anti-pollution laws, which
prohibit any pollution whatsoever to bodies of water, which
rightly guarantee the preservation of the Bay for use as
a fish incubator, which would require the industry to pro-
perly treat any effluent as to be harmless to man, ani-
mal or esthetic purposes, the aquatic preserve would pro-
hibit Port St. Joe growing in this area, too.
Port St. Joe owes its existence to its Bay and har-
bor. If we want to remain our present size and just mark
time, we can sit back and let these activities go on to de-
clare our bay an aquatic preserve. If we want to exper-
ience reasonable growth and use of our only natural re-
source, we will oppose the measure in any way which we
can. Remember, the aquatic preserve definition says NO
CHANGES' may be made except necessary maintenance
of shipping lanes. No driving piling, no dredging what-
ever, no matter how worthy or necessary the need. This
would even eliminate any possibility of dredging out a
pleasure boat basin. Remember, no dredging, no filling.
Urge your City Commisisoners to oppose this virtual
closing of our Bay by resolution and personal objections
to the State Cabinet. Urge your County Commissioners
to do likewise. Make your objections known to Represen-
tatives Joe Chapman and John Robert Middlemas and to
Senator W. E. Bishop.
Thanks to the astronauts who took all those amazing
photos of the earth from the front yard of the moon, a
tremendous number of persons are beginning to realize
that whether the idea appeals to us or not all of us are
citizens of the earth.
Somebody with a flair for mathematics has figured
'out some interesting facts about these citizens, facts which
can be grasped better if we think' of the people of the
earth as living in a single small town, with a population
of 1,000. Sixty of these 1,000 would be Americans and
these 60 would be getting half of the town's income. The

It's about Time. That's what
this column is all about. For I
don't know how you feel about
it, but I am fed up with Day-

Geographically, 29 of Florida's
67 counties should be in the Cen-
tral time zone to start with. And
.this includes the Tampa Bay Area
of St. Petersburg, and Tampa. So
when the people of .this, area are
on normal Eastern Standard
Time, they are already enjoying
advantages of Daylight Saving
Time might offer. When they add
another hour to conform with
Daylight Saving they are really
two hours ahead of sun time.
In order to go about our daily
activities we have to get up each
morning before daylight. And it
bothers me as I watch the kids
trudging to school in the dark
with our traffic situation as it is.

them. Of the 1,000, 330 would be classified as Christians
-though perhaps they might not always show it. Eighty
of the 1,000 would be out and out Communists and 370
others would be under Communist domination. About
a third of the 1,000 would be white-some 300 of them.
The rest, about 700, would be non-white-Negroes, Orien-
tals and others. While the 60 Americans probably would
be outvoted in local elections and be under constant pres-

You wanta know what a fellow gets for climbing out on a limb? '
He gets nine guys on the New York Mets baseball team to saw it
off for him, with not even a polite "may I".
I predicted last week that the Orioles would win the World
Series in five games. I only missed it four. That's pretty close
for an amateur. And if the Series were starting tomorrow, I would
do the same thing again. '
Needless to say, two or three "friends and supporters" have
told me during the past week that the New York Mets won the
series in five games. So, you see, I wasn't too far off I had
the number of games right: just the wrong team.
Bob Hope remarked, "What do you think of those Mets last
year they couldn't even catch the. key to the city, now here they
are in the World Series". I still don't see how they won.
But last week just wasn't my week in sports.
We have our usual little football contest going in the Rotary
Club. Roy Gibson furnishes each member with a list of games
coming up for the week end and we select who we think will be
the winner in 20 games. At the bottom of the list is always the%
Port St. Joe Sharks game.
Here I was sailing along in contention, about three from the
top. The prize given at the end of the season could be mine with
a little luck (and it would have to be luck, because my selections
are strictly guess work.) Last week, there it was at the bottom of
the contest sheet, "Port St. Joe vs Florida High". I wanted to mark
Port St. Joe, out of loyalty. But, I began to think of that contention
and how I was only three down from the top winner, George Core.
That was a top level decision. Should I go by sentiment or should
I take the attitude that nearly everyone had, "The Sharks can't
win over big Florida High". I thought I would, for once, listen
to logic rather than sentiment and mark for Florida High.
Then those Sharks came along and messed up my logic and won!
Also Georgia lost, Georgia Tech lost and several other selections
lost and I was just up the creek.
I'll never make it back up to third place much less to
the top. And, I learned a lesson. Go on sentiment and forget
logic it only gets you into trouble.
Get ready. Saturday night is the night you turn, the clock
back one hour and sleep for an hour longer. You'll wake up one hour
later Sunday morning after it's already daylight. If you go to church
Sunday and nobody is there, check to see if you're an hour early-
you may have forgotten to set your clock back Saturday.

Franklin County Gets
Check from Island
Apalachicola St. Vincent Na-
tional Wildlife Refuge Manager
Charles Noble presented a check
for $15,262.20 to C. C. Land, Chair-
man of the Board of County Com-
missioners of Franklin County at
the County Commissioners meeting
in Apalachicola on October 15. This
is the first of the annual pay-
ments which will be made to Frank-
lin County as a result of the 1968
acquisition of St. Vincent Island for
inclusion in the National Wildlife
Refuge System. St. Vincent Island
is located in Franklin County.
The Refuge Revenue Sharing
Act (Public Law 88-523) provides
for annual payments to counties in
which National Wildlife Refuges
are located. For each particular re-
fuge, either % of one percent of
the land cost, or 25 percent of re-
venues from sale of refuge pro-
ducts (timber, etc.), whichever is
the greater amount, is paid the
county annually. These payments
are earmarked for public schools
The source of funds shared with
counties is not from appropriated
funds. These funds are obtained
through sale of refuge products or
resources on any of the 320 wildlife
refuges in the National Wildlife Re-
fuge System. The receipts are
'pooled' to provide the fund from
which counties containing refuges
over the entire nation receive an
annual share of wildlife refuge re-

Continuously Falling Water Supplies
Growing Concern of Many Communities
Some cities and communities re-
cently except for the brief peri-
ods of heavy rainfalls have felt
the pinch of water scarcity. These
shortages have been developing
for years. Abundant pure water sup-
plies are a chief consideration in
locating new industries because
both industry and individuals are
using more and more fresh water.
The paper industry uses huge
quantities of it. A ton of water is
required to "finish the woolens" in
a three-piece suit; 150 tons of
water are used to make a ton of
steel. Agriculture, too, is a heavy
user of water. It takes 4,000 gal-
lons to grow a bushel of wheat and
1,300 gallons to produce a pound
of beef and bring it to the butcher
shop where we buy it.
For information on how to con-
serve water for all purposes, con-
tact your Soil Conservation Ser-
vice representatives in the County
Courthouse in Blountstown.
Rev. C. Byron Smith reminded
the Kiwanis Club Tuesday, that
money was the servant of man and
not man the servant of money. "Too
often man becomes obsessed with
his goal of getting more and more
money and in the process neglects
more and more the really import-
ant things money can do for him
and those about him".
"A good example", Smith ex-
plained, "is man's giving habits to
his church". He went on to state
that the Old Testament says that
man should give the tithe, or 10%
of his income and also offerings
over and above the tithe for spec-
ial occasions. "I find no place in
the Bible where this requirement
of man and his wealth has been
changed", Rev. Smith said,
"Money can bring man good
things and the good life", the spea-
ker said, "but the really important
things such as friendship, health,
peace, enjoyment of our surround-
ings and other important but in-
tangible things have no price tag
on them". He stated that these im-
portant things come to man as a
result of how he manages what
God gives him, creating an atti-
tude to enjoy the important things
money cannot buy.
Guests of the club were student
guests Angie Butts, Charles Britt
and Adrian Gant.
