Major Street Lighting
After some six years of study-
ing about the situation and mak-
ing spot improvements, the City
Commission agreed T u e s day
night to completely overhaul and
renovate the City's street light
It was nearly six years ago
that the Port St. Joe Jaycees pre-
sented a comprehensive lighting
plan to'the City Commission for
their adoption. The plan had
been prepared for the Jaycees by
Florida Power Corporation light-
ing engineers. During the ensu-
ing time, portions of the plan
have been adopted such as the
lighting of Fifth Street, Reid
Avenue. and Monument Avenue
to the North City Limits.
About six weeks ago, the City
asked Florida Power's manager,
Wes Thompson, to update the
plan by making a current survey
of the City's lighting needs.
Thompson gave his report
Tuesday night, suggesting that
immediate attention be given to
North Port St. Joe, Monument
Avenue, Long Avenue and Gar-
rison Avenue. Thompson's plan
had mercury vapor lamps sug-
gested for these and other North
South streets in the city with
smaller lights placed on the
East, West streets where needed.
After considerable study of the
plan, and considering costs to the
City, Commissioner Bob Holland
made the motion that the plan
be adopted in its entirety. The
motion carried unanimously.
Thompson pointed out to the
Commission that the entire plan
would cost the City an additional
$2,646.80 per year in street light-
The plan makes light improve-
ments on every street in the City.
Lights are to be placed where'
there have been none before and
present lights are to be improv-
ed with larger wattages.
Thompson told the Commis-
sion that he didn't expect to
get the entire plan adopted at
Tuesday's meeting, but that he
would get Florida Power's engin-
eers on the project immediately
and schedule the work with the
construction crews. He estimated
that the entire program would
be installed and operating by
late April or early May.
Jaycees Making Last Minute Appeal
For Donations to Provide Christmas
Deputies Destroy till
Gulf County Deputies and State Beverage Agents destroyed a
moonshine still early last Week on the old Howard Creek road. The
still was'located about 100 yards off the road. It was capable of
producing 19 barrels of whiskey a day and 40 gallons of the moon-
shine was found with the still. The Deputies put the axe to the
still and smashed it up. Shown in the picture afthe still are John

by the Port St. Joe City Commis-
Sims was awarded the Congres-

for heroic action in Vietnam.
Mayor Frank Pate asked that
the Board approve the name 'Clif-

Additional natural gas pressure

Port St. Joe within the next few

the Port St. Joe sub-station.
Port St. Joe received natural-
gas service in 1963 when a two
inch main was run to the city

,gas per hour. The first main was
run to the city as a spur from a

FPC Announces Reduction In Rates
Florida Power Corporation, for
the third time in 11 months, has
reduced its rates. The latest re-
duction will total $2.5-milkon an-
This marks the fifth reduction
for the State's second largest
power company since January,
"Increased usage, a fast grow-
ing service area, and increased
operating efficiency have made
possible these reductions," A. P.
Perez, president, said.
Florida Power Corporation, for
quite some time, has had the
stated objective of reducing the
cost of electricity to its custo-
mers whenever possible.
The major portion of the latest
reduction, $1.8-million, will go to
small and medium sized commer-
cial businesses. Approximately
$600,000 will go to residential
customers, while $100,000 will go
to small industrial customers.
Monthly savings to the average
residential customer will amount
to 12 cents.
In addition to the latest rate
reduction, Florida Power in re-
cent weeks has donated a 30,000
acre park site to the State of
Florida. This included an 18,000
acre lake (Lake Talquin) and
12,000 acres of woodland near
Tallahassee. The company re-
cently was the first corporate re-

million construction program.

Construction crews are nearly
through laying the .1.4 mile gas-

is considered adequate to meet
the city's growth for many years
in the future.
Basic Magnesia and Port St.

President Nixon's administration deserves full recog-
tion for working through Congress a bill which would ap-
ply the same standards to voter registration to all states
as are now applied to the Southern states.
The Johnson and Kennedy administrations hit the
South over the head, with a law that required everyone
be allowed to register who was 21 years of age and a
citizen of the United States with full citizenship rights.,
The Northern Legislators sagely nodded' their heads
in approval, saying "that's good". ,
But last week the Nixon administration guided a bill
through Congress which applied 'the same qualifications
for voter registration to all the States of the Union. If
we must have this law, let it apply to everyone. The fact
'that it applied only to the. South is what made Southern-
ers hot under the collar.
We still do not believe that a man or woman who
cannot read or write should be allowed to vote. It is only

The objections the South put up when the law was

It will now probably be only a short time until a pro-

Our cousins of the Miami Herald seem ever faithful
to the obsession that all Floridians above Lake Okeecho-
bee are conspiring against that portion to the south which
they arrogate to themselves as South Florida.
Thus it was no surprise to read in a Herald editorial
that the trouble Miami's Michael O'Neil was having with
- the State Senate was accentuated "by the reluctance of
North Florida politicians to see the course of highway
construction in the hands of a South Floridian."
You fired wild from the hip that time, fellows.
It's true that O'Neil is the first Miamian in history
to head the state's roadbuilding program (appointed by
a North Florida politician who was elected Governor over
a Miamian who carried Dade county).
But you can't blame his difficulties with the Senate
on North Florida politicians.
When they called the roll in the Senate and rejected
him as Secretary of Transportation, there were eight
votes against him from Senators who live south of Lake
Okeechobee' and only seven from Senators who live
in the wide area from Gainesville northward and west-
ward. Among his harshest critics in the debate preceding
the vote was Sen. Lee Weissenborn of Miami, who was
joined by Senators Robert Haverfield and Richard Stone
in voting to oust their fellow townsman.
S On the other hand, his appointment was supported
.'by such influential North Florida politicians as Senators
John Mathews, Tom Slade and Dan Scarborough of Jack-
sonville, Mallory Horne of Tallahassee and Thomas Bishop
of Lake City.

Just consider the celebration they gave for their Tail Twister,
Dewitt Dalton. Dewitt is a friendly sort. It is his job to fine the
Lion's for infractions of the rules of the club-or anything that
might strike Dewitt's fancy. He can fine them for anything from
eating peas on the edge of a knife to stirring iced tea with one's
finger. This is his job and he d6es it with gusto.
Last week, the Lion's decided to reward Dewitt for a job well
done. Dewitt has been especially conscientious lately with his
job of levying fines, so the reward was in order.
Lions David Rich and John Braun were in charge of securing
the just reward for Dewitt. When the meeting opened, John
snapped a pair of handcuffs on Dewitt. He had borrowed the hand-
cuffs from Deputy Wayne White, so they were substantial enough
to hold even Dewitt. Only one draw-back. Wayne wouldn't let
John and David borrow his handcuff key.
Then they presented him with a two-foot high bottle of "Coke"
so he could carry his own refreshments with him and a large over-
size watch so he could properly tell the time when the meeting
Next came a whipped cream pie in the schnozz.' This was
"annointment" for service above and beyond the call of duty.
Dewitt had to eat dinner, in handcuffs, with most of the pie
still smeared all over his face.
After dinner, the Lions had to take Dewitt to the county jail
to get the handcuffs removed. This was the reason for Wayne
keeping the key. He wanted to see what Dewittf looked like.
This past Monday, Dewitt showed what a sport he was by
inviting Deputy Wayne White to be his guest at lunch with the
Lion's Club. During lunch, Dewitt arose to thank the Lions for
their acknowledgement of his talents. Then he sprang his own
surprise a fitting return for the acknowledgement he had re-
ceived. Dewitt told Wayne he was swearing out a warrant for
David and John for "assault. and battery".
Wayne got up from his meal, sauntered over and placed David
and John under arrest then informed Dewitt he owed him $42.00.
"Whit for?" asked Dewitt.
"For court costs", replied Wayne. "If you want -me to serve
the warrants and take these two to jail, that will be another $42.00
for serving fees".
Dewitt had only 13c in his pocket, so, head hanging sadly low
he had to admit, "fellows, I'm sorry,- but I'm just going to have
to back down on your award of appreciation".

When the federally financed
Senior Citizen's Hot Meat Pro-
gram was discontinued recently
for lack of funds, Meter Maid
Industries, Inc. worked out a
program of its own.
Stuart Greenfield, Meter Maid
president, in announcing the
plan said, "I'm extremely happy
and gratified that we have the
blessing of the County Commis-
sion, although it really wasn't ne-
cessary since no state or local
funds are asked for the project."
Greenfield said that under the
plan, senior citizens may re-
ceive two meals a day, seven
days a week, consisting of a hot,
protein entree, green vegetable,
a starch, salad, dessert and bever-
age at a total cost of 88 cents at
any of the Park Lane cafeterias
in the county.
The former program that was
halted for lack of funds only
provided one meal a day, five
days a week and was confined to
certain centers within the City
Provision has been made under
the new plan for take out meals
when desired at an additional
cost of only 12 cents, featuring
all dispensible utensils.
While senior citizens wishing
to take advantage of the new pro-
gram will be required to register
and receive an identification
card, there will be no bureau-
cratic red-tape or questionaires.
All they need do is apply and
provide evidence that they are
60 years of age.
Registration will begin Decem-
ber 15 and run through Dec. 20,
during the lunch and dinner
hours at all Park Lane cafeter-
ias. Free refreshments will be
given all those who apply during
this period. Future registrations
will be held the first and last
Wednesday of every month.
Greenfield said that he decided
to make the gesture, "because
something had to be done to help
feed these people" and since
government financial aid was no
longer available. He decided it
was up to private industry to do
what it could.
"The community has already
done a lot for us and this is our
way of doing something for the
community," he said.
Meter Maid Industries, Inc. es-
timates that about 5,000 people
will take part daily as opposed to
500 in the original program.

He Deserves Our Praise
Fellow Citizens of Port
St. Joe and Gulf County:
On December 2, 1969, the Pres-
ident of the United States dele-
gated the Vice-President to award
the nation's highest medal (the
Congressional Medal of Honor)
posthumously to a very brave
and courageous young man from
Port St. Joe, S-Sgt. Clifford Ches-
ter Sims, whose relatives were
summoned to Washington to ac-
cept this outstanding award.
The late S-Sgt. Sims happens to
be from among our midst. His fa-
ther is a resident of Port St. Joe.
For his heroic action God called
him on to a brighter world. A
man can give nothing greater for
his country and fellow man than
his life in time of war. Sims was
leading Company D, an infantry
group in the 101st Airborne Divi-
sion near Hue inr February 1968,
when it came under heavy fire.
The squad was approaching a
Viet Cong bunker when Sims
heard the sound of an enemy boo-
by trap being triggered. He jump-
ed on it just as it exploded, his
body absorbing the impact of the'
blast, saving the lives of his com-
This young man used to walk
on and enjoy the streets here in
Port St. Joe just an average
young American boy growing up
- when the time came for him
to offer his part to our nation's
military during war time. He en-
listed and eventually was sent,
together with many other young
men, to Vietnam, where he laid
down the supreme sacrifice.
It is inconceivable that a civic-
minded community, full of grate-
ful, dedicated, patriotic people as
Port St. Joe and Gulf County can
stand by and completely ignore
such courageous action that this
young man, once a Port St. Joe
and Gulf County citizen, display-
ed on that dark dreary day in
February 1968, in the defense of
his, yours and my country. Past
history of Port St. Joe and Gulf
County will reveal many highly
praised accomplishments of sev-
eral young men from among our
midst, one of which is very sig-
nificant in that our local VFW
is named for a very brave and
courageous young man, John C.
Gainous, who died on the battle-
fields of Vietnam fighting for his
country and all of his fellow citi-
zens here in Port St. Joe..
The good people of this com-
Sharkettes Formed To
Boost Port St. Joe High
The Sharketts are Port St. Joe
High School's new dance and
drill team. This scintillating
group was well received when
they gave their first field perfor-
mance during a pre-game show
at HomeComing. They have
marched in several parades and
have many more projects planned
for the school year.
The sixteen girls making up
this skilled group are Vicki Bass,
sophomore, daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. A. C. Stephens; Valeria
Bowles, sophomore, niece of Mr.
and Mrs. William Bess; Beth

Mrs. Ken Cox; Dolores Dickey,
junior, daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
John C. Dickey; Debbie Hatta-
way, senior, daughter of'Mr, and
Mrs. J. B. Hattaway; Sharon
Hallmon, senior, daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. Jesse Hallmon; Debbie
Hamm, sophomore, daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. Benton Hamm; Joy
Parker, junior, daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. T. E. Parker, Jr., Judy
Schweikert, sophomore, daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. N. C. Schweikert;

daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Blake
Thomason; Dianne Varnes, sopho-
more, daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Neil Varnes; and Brenda Weeks,
junior, daughter of Mr. and Mrs.

ual as well as group performance,
their poise, their coordination,
and their showmanship.

Gainous' remains were returned

traditional Americanism to the

the display of this recognition de-

confessed the murders and a tape
recording of it was taken in the.
