Need To Enforce Law
There's getting to be more and more mini-bikes in
Port St Joe and other communities. Of course anything
motorized attracts kids and the miniature motorcycles
have all the kids in a dither. This guarantees the success.
of mini-bikes through their acceptance by those for whom
the market Is aimed.
One hates to be a kill-joy in such matters, aut the fact
remains that mini-bikes are becoming an increasing men-
in Port St. Joe as well as other communities. Granted,
the kids get a charge out of operating them, and every-
one likes to see the kids have fun. For this reason, even
though statutes were on the books governing the opera-.
,tionof such vehicles as mini-bikes even before heir in-
troductionon ntie scene, enforcement officials still hate
to tell a kid that it is unlawful for him to ride his pride and
But one must consider the fact that the laws weren't
passedto prevent kids from having a good time. .,The
laws were passed to prevent kids from being placed in a
potentially highly dangerous position, trough operation
f, .f motor vehicle on a highway. The danger exists from
the lack of conviction by kids that they can hurt them-
selves and because the small bikes and small kids are
hard to see in many traffic situations. l
Then, too, many mini-bikes don't pass even the min-
imum equipment requirements for operation on a thorough-
fare in the Tirst place.
We think the rules are very lenient. Any kid, 15
16 can ride a bike of less than five brake horsepower
the daytime, provided the bike has lights, horn, brake
and' certain safety requirements of the State Highw
Safety Department After a kid reaches 16, he can

The thinking is that anyone less than 15 years of age
fers a distinct hazard on the streets and thoroughfa
on a motor vehicle, and that those not qualified to obt
an. operators license shouldn't be operating vehicles off
ed by the privileges of having an operator's license.
Agreed, it's a distasteful thing to have to do, to ]
thq kids off the streets with their mini-bikes. But
must be done. Not only is it the law, but the safety f
tor cannot be ignored. And, if the law enforcement o:
cials fail to perform this service,, we firmly believe ti
they are being derelict in their duty, not only in uphold
the law but providing for the safety of the citizens of

By the time you read this, Governor Askew and other
new state' officers will have been sworn in. On a county
l6vel, Lamar Davis will have .been seated as a new Couinty
Commissioner, Walter Graham will be starting a new_
term and Gene Raffield, Kenneth Whitfield and William
Roemer will begin new four year terms on the School'
With times as they are and with the promise of the
- future 'nd its problems what they are, we cannot envy
any of these men their jobs or duties.
With the money crisis 'faced by.all aspects of govern-
ment, elected officials have become now, more than ever,
servants of the people. "People are now, mote than ever,
cognizant of what is going on in governmental circles. Ser-
vices are costing more and more tax money, and more and
more tax money causes people to be increasingly interest-
ed in where public 'money is being spent. This awareness
is even now so acute that people are beginning to believe
that Governor Kirk was right when he said Florida faced
a deficit unless the spending program was curtailed.
Frankly, we want these people to do us a good job.'

tle about doll clothes and other
girl activities, I figured I knew
put all about stamps. /

ac- vested in a catalogue. We had a
ffi- lot of fun starting her collection.

changed since I was a youngster.
Then one album listed every

for only about half of them. Check-

S sold for $100 were now worth
of about $600.
Things went well for about six
months. Then my daughter found
other interests. Stamps no longer
appealed to her, so I took over
her collection and began to build
on it. Since then I have built a
collection of over 110,000 varie-
ties and have had a ball doing it.

Should a person ever get behind on his football watching, he
should be caught up by now if he took time out to watch television .
any at all since Christmas. Most of the bowls featured upsets of
favored teams but the one we liked best was the Peach Bowl. And
the part bf the Peach Bowl we liked best was watching all of that
snow come tumbling down while we sat, nice and warm, in our
recliner while those at Grant Field were shivering in the plummet-
Everyone is getting in on the "bowl act" these days, with
more bowls playing than there is time on TV to air them. Even
the smaller towns are featuring bowls with high school teams in-
volved. Right off hand, we think of three of these miniature bowls
(or saucers if you please) within driving distance of Port St. Joe.
There's the "Peanut Bowl" in iDothan, the "Watermelon Bowl" in
Chipley and the "Tobacco Bowl" in Quincy. Maybe we should get
up a "Paper Bowl" here in Port St. Joe.
While the United States has always followed its sports and
has a multitude of games to follow, football seems to be taking as
much of the American's interest as soccer is doing for other na-
tions throughout the world. Those who have been there, tell us
you can get into a fight right quick over soccer in South America,
Mexico or Europe.
,But, even as much as we like football, it's a relief that the games
are nearly over, Only a smattering of games remain for this month
and that's the end of it. We can now get back to "Flip" Wilson,
Ironsides, Name of the Game and Dr. Gannon again.

There are two superstitions in connection with New Year. One
is that eating of blackeyed peas and hog jowl on New Year's day
will bring you luck. The other is that one does all year long, what
he does on New Year's day.
As for the first superstition, I'm not holding my breath wait-
ing for any extra-qrdinary good luck to come my way. The black-
eyed peas and hog jowl were good following a steady diet of turkey
and dressing, ham, fruit cake, etc., but as for the good luck .. well,
it hasn't happened before, and I don't expect it now.
The second superstition doesn't mean anything either. I spent
all day long Newi Year in my recliner watching the parades and the
football games, which I Acan assure you won't be the case ,for the

"We are striving to make the
re-examination as convenient as
possible for the drivers. We urge
them to get ready for the test be-
fore coming in to take it. Study of
the Florida Driver's Handbook, and
upgrading of vision,-if necessary,
-is the proper preparaton.
"And if each person will come
in on or before his birthday, this
will have the effect of smoothing
out the crowds of people, and will
help prevent long waiting lines in
the last few days of the renewal
"The test will include a check of
the applicant's vision, an informal
check of his hearing, and a short
list ,of questions to test his ability
ato read and understand highway
and traffic signs.
"The driver will not take a road
test during re-examination. But
some, whose safe driving ability is
doubtful, may be asked to come
back later for a separate road test.
"We have every reason to be-
lieve based on other states' ex-
perience that only a few persons
will lose their license through this
program. They will be only those
few who absolutely cannot meet
safe driving standards, and would
be a menace not only to others but
also to themselves when behind
the wheel. .
"From a safety standpoint, the
most important result will be a
refresher course in safe driving
a result of the study for the te
and improved vision which will e4-
able many persons to simply se
better to drive safely."
