1970 Was A Good Year
1970 was a good year for Port St. Joe and Gulf County.
Looking back through the files of The Star for the past
year, most of the news was good news. Nothing earth-
shattering happened, but -any items of progress were re-
corded for this area which tended to provide more of the
"good life" 'for our people.
'The City embarked on an improved drainage gro-
gram during 1970, inaugurating a program of installing
concrete drain pipe in ditches in the City giving a more
pleasing appearance and providing better drainage for the
City. Late last year, the State began work on Niles Road
which is designed to alleviate a bad drainage problem in
that section of Port St. Joe lying East of Garrison Avenue.
The City als6 received a "no death" award from the
Highway Patrol during 1970 for the year of 1969. One
blot on our record for 1970 is that we will receive no such
award for the year due to the death of Lee Griffin last
Port St. Joe's basketball Sharks won the Gulf Coast
Conference Championship last year, but lost to Baker in
the district play-offs for the state championship.
Florida Power began making improvements in the
SCity during 1970. They installed new and additional
Street lights at the request of the City Commission and
Salso installed a 15 KW power generating plant which will
furnish the entire power needs of the City should trans-
Smission from ;regular generating facilities be interruLpted.
Everyone worked the full year in Port St. Joe dur-
ing 1970. All of Port St. Joe's industry enjoyed a good
year with no down time.
Residents of thq City saw a, 'onceim a lifetime"
event in 1970 wheni the sun, went,into a total eclipse and
'left the town in darkness for, about 15 minutes during
the middle ?f theday. :.

Additional deer were planted in the Edward Ball
Game Preserve in 1970 and reports are that the deer'
herd on the Preserve is multiplying rapidly.
The City started work in 1970 on ,engineering plans
for a disposal system to properly dispose of industrial and
domestic wastes to meet pollution guidelines set down by
the state and federal governments. This is the first sys-
tem of its kind, in the State of Florida.
And speaking of firsts. Port St. Joe students entered
a new high school here in 1970 which has been identified
,as the best school plant in this part of the South.
While Port St. Joe had a limited amount of racial dis-
turbance during 1970, eve~. that small amount of discord
seems to have practically vanished as the year passed out.
Citizens of the City joined together in a successful
effort to raise $8,000 for tew- uniforms for the High
School bdnd during the pastyear, again emphasizing the
willingness of our people to work together. '
Direct long distance dialing was installed by the tele-
phone company during the year and is scheduled to be
piut hi useearly in January. Telephone officials say the
system is already operable if you care to try it out.

more employees working on jobs
covered by social security are re-
quired to report their earnings ac-
curately and promptly, according
to James Robinson, Manager of the
Panama City Social Security Office.
He said many employers think it is
not important td 'report earnings
when a worker only earns a small
amount. But, this ~tiall amount may
be the factor which determines
whether the worker's family gets
socail security benefits when the
worker retires, dies, or becomes
Robinson said there are three em-
ployer classifications (1) em-
ployers who operate a trade or
business, (2) persons who have do-
mestic workers in and around
their homes, and (3) farm operators
Who hire farm hands.
All these employers should ask
the worker to show his social se-
curity card when he is hired, Ro-
binson advised. The employer, as
the responsible person, should put
in his permanent records the name
and social security number of the
worker exactly as they are shown
on the worker's card.
The employee also has a respon-
sibility to cooperate with his em-
ployer. The worker should be sure
his earnings are being reported
for social security purposes, and he
should expect his employer to de-
duct the social security tax from'
Employers who operate a non-
farm trade or business must report
on any wages paid to an employee.
Payments such as room, meals, etc.
in lieu of money count as wages.
Household employers report only
the actual cash wages paid to a
worker. The worker who is paid
$50 or more in cash wages in a
calendar quarter must be reported.

Farm employers report only the

very enthusiastic about the new
turf. "It is the best-l9oking ar-
tificial grass I've seen," he said.
"The City, of Miami is to be
congratulated," -said Tom Kelle-
her, another long time official.
"It's wonderful. One key factor
is the reduction of injuries es-
pecially in the knee and ankle
aL-eas. I would say it reduces such
injuries 50 per cent." The new
turf cannot get muddy which re-
duces laundry costs for uniforms.
Maintenance costs are sharply
reduced and there are never un-
even or bare spots.
Poly Turf is being installed
around the country and officials
predict that eventually all major
fields will be. artificially turfed.

I guess it's just natural that we gravitate toward those things
which are not best for us. Take me, for instance. Here I've had a
couple of days off for Christmas; two days of not even going to
the office to check the mail, look after heating elements, check
the heater, lights, etc. Now, the hardest thing I find to do
is to get back to work. After only two days,' the work habit has
been broken. Too bad other habits aren't as easily done away with.
We have one habit we don't want to break and that habit is
going over to George McLawhon's house on Christmas day for a cup
of his ambrosia. George makes up a big pot of the delicious cit-
rus dish every Christmas "for his friends".
Always, George winds up trying to push more ambrosia off on
his "customers" than they want or can eat. The thought just oc-
curred to me that if you want a delicious cup of ambrosia next Christ-
mas day just go call on George McLawhon. He always has plenty
and I know he would be more than happy to see each and every
one of you.
Santa Claus must have been reading this column' during the
past year. It's evident that he has because he must think I stink.
This conclusion is reached by the abundance of "good smellum"
he brought me this year. I ran 'obut of my favorite kind back in
November, but I had been using small dabs of after shave in near
empty bottles, encroaching on the. boys supply and even doing
without, hoping I would get at least one bottle of my favorite for
Christmas. I did. I got three. .But, they'll be used up by next
There's something about Christmas dinner that must be filling
from anticipation as well as the actual eating. I ate one meal on
Christmas day (plus two cups of George's ambrosia) and I felt
full as a/tick all day long. This is a terrible situation to get in on
a day when there are so many good things to be eaten up.
Speaking of eating good things. John Strickland said he would
be glad when; it ,.came the last of this week. "Maybe by then", he
said, "all the gook will be: eaten up and I can get a good old plain
Personally, I'think the tiresome rich tasting goodies of Christ-
mas had more to do with the custom of eating hog jowl and black
eye peas for New Year's 'dinner than any did any superstition of
good or bad luck.

Now thatfChr-itmas is over, and by the time you read this, the
new year will le right on top of us, we must spend the ensuing week
getting in the habft of writing "1971" rather than "1970' on our
dated material. Faced with this task of memory work, I'll shut
down this blurb, now, and wish all of you a Happy New Year!

Gulf County will be one of five
Big Bend counties to gain from
the redistribution of Minimum
Foundation Program funds it was
learned the latter part of last
week. Gulf stands to gain an ad-
ditional $29,271, while neigh-
boring Franklin and Calhoun
counties will lose money.
Stat6wi4e 37 counties were
winners and 30 losers.
When the payoff finally comes,
the winners may i~fid the take
considerably smaller than ex-
What happened was that $25.9
million of the total $676 million
a year in Minimum Foundation
Program funds for education was
redistributed according to a com-
plicated formula worked out by
The formula is based on the
level of property tax assessment
in each county and theoretically
takes money from counties asses.
sing under the statewide average
of 83 per cent of the true value
and gives it to those that are
But it doesn't necessarily work
that way because of other factors.
Thirty counties, are under the
average assessment, but not all of
them will lose money.
Greatly complicating the pay-
off, however, is the certainty that
tax assessors will take the redis-
tribution formula to court and
economic factors that are shrink-
ing the state dollar.
Many assessors consider the
formula an invasion of their con-
stitutional rights and were work-
ing last week to file a suit seek-
ing to nullify the act that created
Additionally, state spending is
being cut back because of a dip
in revenue and a likely target of
the scissors wielders is some
$13.6 million in tax equalization
The equalization fund, the so-
oalled Christian-Harris kicker-
after Education Commissioner
Floyd Christian and Rep. Mar-
shall Harris,-is designed to aid
counties that are taxing to the 10
mill limit but realizing a lower
than average per mill yield.
But the kicker in the kicker is
that the Legislature appropriated
only $7 million for Christian-
Harris. With revenue down it
probably will not be possible to
allocate the full $13.6 million.
Should the redistribution for-
mula for MFP funds clear the le-
gal hurdle, it would affect funds
available for the entire 1970-71
fiscal year but not until March
disbursements come out.
County school officials were
left wondering in. the meantime
how much money they would
have to finish out the school year.
In addition to the school money,
31 counties will also gain a por-
tion of gasoline tax revenues as
a result of the assessment study.
Gulf County will apparently be
one of 36 counties that will lose
a portion of these funds, how-
