Additional' Source of Electricity for
Port St. Joe Area Being Installed
Florida Power Corporation be-
gan construction this week on a
power generating 'plant, to be
located' at their sub-station 'at
the East end of 10th Street, ac-
cording to Wes Thompson, local
SFPC manager. The plant, desig-
"nated as a "peaking unit" is de-
signed to furnish additional pow-
er in times of increased' demand,
on electrical energy, such as the
summer time. with its increased
air conditioning demand for elec-
Florida Power is spending ap-
proximately $1.5 million on, the
installation here,' which will
serve the, Port St. Joe and Apa-
lachicola area needs.
"Peaking units, such as the
one being installed at the Port
St ..*oe...substation, are another
means used' by Florida Power
Corporation to increase -the re-
liability. of electrical service",
Thompson said. -
-JQulck Reserve Power
*The type- unit being installed
here'can start hp 'and reach full
power in just 10 minutes, thus
providing quick reserve power
for Port St. Joe and vicinity in
'the event of power trouble. The
peaking unit under construction
here 'will be able to produce 17,-
000 kilowatts of power. The, Port
St., Joe area currently uses an
average of 14,000 .KW, I so the
unit will be able to completely
supply power for the area -in
case of extreme emergencies.
Foundation work is undrway
now ,with the turbine, genera-
tor and instrument components
scheduled for arrival in mid-
"The turbo-generating unit is
completely, housed," Thompson
said,- "and; it .has the latest in
sound-abatemtent equipment." He
went -on to'say the unit would
burn highly refined distillate oil
in the carefully-tuned turbine,
which means it will not produce
smoke. "It will be smokeless and
quiet, and it will enhance elec-
trical reliability for Port St.
Two other company locations
will have peaking units like the

Application Made for Aid
In Sewage Plant Project
In a special meeting last week
the City Commission instructed
its engineers, David Sinith Eng-
ineering, Inc., to make applica-
tion for federal assistance in
constructing a new sewage dis-
posal system here in Port St.
Joe. The new.system will be the
first of its kind in Florida, car-.
ing for industrial and residential
The Engineers were' instiuct-,
ed to make application to the
Florida Department of Air and
Water Pollution Control and file
the City's preliminary plan for
approval of the project as it has
been outlined by the engineers.
The City had until May 4 of this
year to file their preliminary
plans and filed them Friday with
the State agency.
The financing arrangements
call for a $1,900,000 grant from
the Federal government, a $1
million loan from HUD, a federal
agency, at 5% interest with the
remainder of the estimated $6,-
598.00 project' to be financed
through the, sale of revenue cer-
tificates by the City.
The application states that the
'St. Joe Paper Company will con-
tribute 97% of the flow of ef-
fluent to 'the new system with
Glidden-Durkee and the City of
Port St. Joe each contributing
one and a half percent. Payment

On Water Charges
The City Commission has re-
assessed its position by which ib
could supply water to the Oak
Grove Water and Sewer District
-and-presented- a County delega-
tion a revised cost schedule with
which they might be able to live
with Tuesday night.
The revised charge table pro-
vides a graduated scale for char-
ges, which protects the City in its
production costs based on antici-
pated increase in volume through
supplying both Oak Grove and
Presently it costs the City
86c per thousand gallons to pro-
vide and treat water and collect
and treat sewage. Engineer fig-
ures show that adding Oak Grove
and Ward Ridge to the system
will give another three million
gallons per month volume with
the same operating crew now em-
Based on these figures, the
City proposed a graduated scale
to the District beginning at $1.35
per 1,000 gallons up to 4,000 gat-
lons and dwindlingg to 54c per
1,000 for all over 20,000 gallons.
This would give the District an
average cost of .6502 per thou-
sand gallons based on the en-
gineer's estimate of volume.
The County representatives,
Chairman Walter Graham, Rudy
Pippin and Leo Kennedy took
the offer under advisement for
about 20 minutes and came back

Negroes, Whites Discuss School Policy
With Board and Reach Understanding

case Tuesday, when a group of

were bothered by rumors that
The School Board attempted to
assure both bodies that the rules
were equally applied and Princi-
pal Walter Wilder was called to

The point of concern seemed;
to be rules applied to student or-
ganizations-rules which the stu-
dents administer themselves.
The School Board said the
rules are the same as they have
been for years. It was pointed
out that a new student constitu-
tion was in the process of being
'drawn up by the combined Stu-
dent Councils of Washington and
Port St. Joe High since the two
schools would be merged next

I'40TWOTHE ST*A*, Part St. -Joe, Florida
A Good N
i It's .not very often we hear from our law enforce-
ment officers around here. As a matter of fact, there
are times here at The Star when we "lose our cool" and
get a little upset with the law enforcement because they
tend to be a little shut mouth with what they do in the way
of protecting the citizens of Port St. Joe and Gulf County.
When we get irked at the officers we have to take a
deep breath, think about the situation, and come to the
conclusion that maybe it. is better that their making news
S-is so rare around here that we get out of the habit of con-
tacting them and they forget to contact us when some-
thing does occur. We have to remember that it is to their
credit that they have so little to report.
We must again give credit to our law enforcement
for their smooth way of insuring our youngsters of a good
time at their annual Junior-Senior Prom Saturday night.
Rumors flitted about that a few disgruntled people with
nothing better to do with their time, were bound and de-
termined to foment trouble at the time in the youngsters'
life when they should be faced with a night of happiness
The ladies are at it again. We're talking about the
ladies who wish to do away with any discrimination of
the gentler sex just because they happened to have the
proper genes and choromosomes to be born femal rather
The ladies now wish to have the names -of hurricanes
given names other than feminine. One writer couldn't
understand this since it is common knowledge that a hur-
ricane packs the most force of anything known to man,
so why shouldn't the females want to be associated with
After all these yeors'of watching for Alma, Brenda,
Camille, Dora, Emily, Frances, Gertrude, etc., etc., it's
going to take some mental education on our part to be-
and not a night of holliganism.
The law enforcement men of our City and County set
about quietly and efficiently to see that the young people
had a good time and did not have it marred by a sense-
less act. One remembers his Prom night all his life, and
it seems a pity there are those who would make this a bad
memory for nearly 200 kids, merely to satisfy their own
Many of us had kids at the prom, and we personally
appreciate the job the Police and Sheriff's Departments
did to see that they had a good time
Like we said before, there isn't a lot said about our
law enforcement people, because they move quietly about
their jobs and for the most part prevent trouble before it
starts. Stopping trouble before it starts prevents the mak-
ing of headlines and sensational news, but it makes for
better sleeping at night. Even though we are -in the
news business, we'll take a good night's sleep over a sen-
sational headli ie any time.
come alarmed when we hear of the pending arrival of Al-
fred, Bob, Custer, Darrel, Eugene, Freddie and Granger.
We must move cautiously on this one in another area
too. If the names of hurricanes are changed to the male
gender, we may have the Charles Atlas Club rising up and
mnanning picket lines in front of the weather bureau.
Problably the next move of the feminists is to demand
an end to "female" names for girl babies. Although it
may be a shock bigger than most men can stand to go a
courting with, a "Mike", a "George", a "Robert" or a.
'Lamar", we, as men, can take comfort in the fact that
a rose by any other man smells just as sweet, and a girl
by any other name also smells just as sweet unless -
the feminists decide to. rebell against that too.

lot of cabbage.
Some of the phrases the young folks come up with pretty well
defy .definition. Some have to be explained in depth as to their
relativity and even then, they leave us scratching our heads.,
One of the kid's phrases is, "Let it all hang out". For this one,
I have found, a definition. "Let it all hang out" means what Presi-
dent Nixon did Thursday night when he announced the search and
destroy expedition in Cambodia. Nixon said it may, make him. a
one-term president, but he was doing what he felt was the right/
thing to do, regardless of the politics involved.
Even ifI disagreed with Nixon's move (which I didn't) I would
have to admire the man for letting his convictions stand ahead of
political expediency.. Not many office holders do that any more.
Every evening when I get home these long afternoons, I go
out back and water my tomatoes, bell peppers and egg plants and
count the beans and peas that are up in what I call a garden and
others just shake their head at. I have seven tomato plants 'grow-
ing with a total of four tomatoes a-hanging so far. There are two
egg plants and three bell peppers. Seven hills of squash are put-
ting out like grass, so we ought to be able to supply the neighbor-
hood in tomatoes, egg plant, bell peppers and squash, at least. I
have to admit, that the butter beans and string beans are not do-
ing as well as could be expected. 'One ray of sunshine, though,
I could harvest a mess of dollar weeds right now.
It's real amusing watching the Legislators politicking for their
higher office during the current session of the Legislature. /I have
watched it and almost to a man, they are making "political hay"
with "this state definitely needs to adopt a program of so and so".
All of these "so and so's" cost more money than is currently being
taken in by the State. Then on the other hand, they philosophize
with the observation, "People are tired of taxes, we must not in-
voke any new taxes".
Most people now have sense enough to know thpt "these new
programs the State can't do without" are financed with tax dollars
and new programs mean new tax dollars.
Bit The Bullet

The President has per-fo !d his duty as he thought it

many Congressmen who should first have the interest of

Developed and sponsored by
Microcom, Inc. of Miami, the new
microwave common c a r r i e r
would give Florida a "speed of
light" transmission system as the
first total statewide space age
communications network.1 It will,
help fill the rapidly. growing
communications needs of- busi-
ness, industry and government.
According to Aubrey B. Hutch-
ison, Jr., president of Microcom,
the requirements for transmis-
sion of data related information
alone will increase by more than
1000 per cent through this de-
cade. Their microwave radio sys-
tem "will relieve overload pre-
sures on current facilities and
help provide the answer to this
overwhelming demand." Hutchi-
son formerly was senior project
engineer for International Tele-
phone & Telegraph Co. in com-
munications systems design.
Another prime example of mi-
crowave radio's use lies in the
fields of government, including
law enforcement, and civil de-
fense. Since the microwave is
wireless, the network would
operate independently through
natural or man-made disasters
which could wreck other types
of communications ssytems.
Versatility of Microcom's state-
wide network will enable at the
speed of light the transmission of
from 50 to 1,000,000 bits of data
per second from, for instance, an
office in Orlando to one in Tam-
pa- for an industrial' user; of it
can carry live action, closed
circuit, black and white or color
television programs for educa-
tional TV, medical knowledge,
events and other activities, in-
cluding a facsimile of a photo;
document or drawing from one
city to another city in Florida;
or it canw carry as many as 39,
000' data channels on a single
microwave radio; beam.
The new Microcom network
will have 136 towers throughout
the state, with main segments.of
the fully integrated system run-
ning from Jacksonville down the
east coast to the Keys, from
Jacksonville west, across the
state' Panhandle and from Jack-
sonville down through the cen-
ter of the state, then across the
west coast and southward. Ad-
ditional areas would be cover-
ed with spurs later to provide
complete statewide coverage.
Microcom will also intercon-
nect with similar newly forming
microwave common carriers in
other states and areas so that
subscribers will have intercom-
munications with their head-
quarters, regional or other of-
fices throughout the United

If a person in Port St. Joe or the surrounding area should want
purchase an electrical appliance, he should be able to do it here
the city, judging from the displays shown at the appliance deal-
' Appliance Fair held last Friday and Saturday. I asked a rep-
entative' of Florida Power Corporation what value he 'would
ce on the representative merchandise on display at the Fair. He
mated $50,000 worth. That's a lot of appliances. When you con-
er that the displays were only'a representative of the dealer's
ck, one realizes there is quite a selection here in Port St. Joe.
t taking a "horseback" guess, based on the value estimate at the

in solving the increasingly important problem of .

Hinote Tells Kiwanians Ecuador
Supplies Most of World's Bananas
Terry Hinote, local citizen re-
cently returned from two and a
half years of living and working
in Guayquil, Ecuador, spoke to the
Kiwanis Club Tuesday, telling
them some of his impressions of
the South American country.
Hinote said that the town of
"Guayquil had approximately 800,-
400 people and is a large shipping
center especially for bananas.
He said the Ecuadorians furnish
most of the world's bananas, with
the economy based mainly on this
one crop. The nation also produces
and exports a large amount of
shrimp and cotton, which is grown
in the inland mountains.
"The people are friendly in Ec-
uador", Hinote said, "as well as
poor, most of them receiving
wages of only $1.00 a day". The
principal diet is bananas and rice
with seafood serving as the most
common meat. Hinote said several
U. S. firms are beginning to put in-
dustry in Ecuador and other South
American nations which is begin-
ning to improve the deplorable liv-
ing conditions, which he describ-
ed as "being 40 years behind our
