"Port St. Joe-The Outlet Port for the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee Valley"
THIRTY-FOURTH YEAR PORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA 32456 THURSDAY, JANUARY 21, 1971 NUMBER 20
Chronic Trouble Makers to
Be Expelled Permanently
Superintendent of Public In-
struction Marion Craig told the
Kiwanis Club Tuesday that -the
school leaders had tried for near-
ly a year to prepare students,
parents, and faculty for the
drastic change that was sure to
be brought about by the integra-
tion of the public schools here
in Port St. Joe.
"We tried talking", Craig said
"but neither side would listen to
the other. As a consequence there
is difficulty adjusting now that
the deed has been accomplished .
Craig told the Kiwanis Club
that the goal of, the school fa-
culty was to do what was neces-
sary to provide a good education
for all students attending school,
regardless of color.
"We have tried hard this year
to bring about an atmosphere of
harmony", Craig said. "A com-
mittee of students have even
been working on the situation but
can't get 100% cooperation so
their efforts haven't been entire-
ly successful, even though they
have made headway."
Craig pointed out that only a
small percentage of the students
were making trouble. "We have
hesitated to put students out of
school permanently", Craig said,
"because this doesn't solbe our
problem, it merely puts it out on
the street and increases the frus-
tration for those individuals".
The Superintendent blamed part
of the disturbances at the school
on the boycott by students the
beginning of the school year.
"Those students who missed sev-
en weeks of school are faced with
the problem of making up seven
weeks of lost work while keep-
ing up to date with regular as-
signments-an almost impossible
"We have tried talking, reason-
ing and 10 day suspensions", he
said, "and still we have periodic
trouble from a few students. The
only course left is to put those
students who cause trouble out
of school for the remainder of
the school year. We hate to do
this, but! we must think of the
many students in school who are
trying to get an education."
Craig told the club members
that nine students were up for
expulsion proceedings as a result
of Monday's fight by several stu-
dents. "If the trouble persists,
there will be more", he said.
The Superintendent said that
rules of behaviour have been set
up for all students, and those
who continuously flout the rules,
colored or white, will be put out
of school for the rest of the
year. "We won't back up on our
set of rules, and they will be ap-
plied to everyone."
Craig pointed out that keeping
with the "get tough" policy, three
blacks and two white students
were jailed as a result of Mon-
Heavy, machinery was at work early this
week preparing the stretch of damaged drive in
front of the Gulf County Courthouse for paving.
Underground water seepage has kept the road in
a state of disrepair since it was put down and
an underground drain system has been installed
Charge Placed Against
Mrs. Sammy Roberts
Mrs. Sammy Lee Roberts of
St. Joe Beach has been charged
by the Gulf County Sheriff's
Department with second degree
murder in connection with the
early morning shooting of her
husband last Wednesday morn-
ing, according to Chief Deputy
H. T. Dean.
Roberts was shot in the chest,
side and shoulder with a 22 cal-
ibre pistol shortly arriving home
from working the midnight shift
at St. Joe Paper Company last
Wednesday. He was pronounced

Gulf County Sheriff's Depart-
ment issued warrants this week
for Dennis Whitfield and David
Glass, both of Apalachicola,
charging them with stealing cop-
per wire in Gulf County, accord-
ing to Chief Deputy H. T. Dean.
Dean said wire thefts have
been plaguing Gulf County offi-
cers for several months, with
St. Joseph/Telephone and Tele-
graph, Gulf Coast Electric Coop-
erative and Florida Power Cor-
poration suffering heavily from
the thefts. Dean said he felt the
wire was being sold in Tallahas-
see and had asked for assistance
from Leon County Deputies in
finding out who was selling the
wire in this locality.
* Dean said he was called Fri-
day by Leon County Deputies tel-
ling him that Whitfield and
Glass had been picked up trying
to sell wire allegedly stolen in
Wakulla County. Dean went to
Tallahassee to question the two

to overcome the difficulty. County Road Super-
intendent Lloyd Whitfield says the drains have
been in place for over a month now and appear
to be keeping the road bed sufficiently dry to ap-
ply the paving. The work above is in preparation
to putting down the hard surface. -Star photo
Mayor Frank Pate asked Clerk
Charles Brock, Tuesday night, if
the Department of Transportation
had responded to the City's re-
quest that they beautify the new
section of Fifth Street East of
Woodward Avenue, completed
last year by DOT.
* Brock reported that he had
received a letter from W. E.
Connery, chairman of roadside
development in Chipley, stating
that DOT had no funds for grass,
shrubbery, etc., with which to
do the job. Brock reported Con-
nery said the state could provide
the labor to do the planting if
the City would furnish the grass
seed, plants and fertilizer.
Mayor Pate asked Representa-
tive William J. Rish, present at
the meeting, if he felt he could
get a little more help in beau-
tifying this stretch of state road
within the City limits. Rish said
he felt he could.
The Board agreed to take
steps to make water available
to the area to preserve any plants
put there and to try and work
out a program with DOT to get

Commission Pondering Retirement
Pay Program for City's Employees
The City Commission began
taking steps Tuesday to create a
retirement program for employ-
ees of the City. Even though the
retirement program has not been
definitely approved by the' Com-
mission, all members are cur-
rently thinking favorably of the
matter and have introduced and
had the first reading of a new
ordinance setting up the pro-
The Board is considering be-
coming a part of the Florida
State Retirement System which
would require a four per cent
salary deduction on the part of
the employee and a matching
four per cent contribution by the
City Clerk Charles Brock had
some figures available Tuesday
night for the Commissioners to
study. He had worked out a pro-
gram for the City to pay up the
past five years of contributions
for all City employees at a cost
of $43,164, based on going into
the program this past December
1. Brock said the City can amor-
tize this $43,164 over a period of
10 years, making up the original
Brock said the plan would pay
retirement to a City employee af-
ter 10 years of service. The plan
pays based on the highest five
years of earnings and makes an
employee eligible for retirement
at age 62, provided he has 10
years of service. Upon retirement
employees would. receive 1.6%
of his average salary per year
for each year of service to the
City. The percentage graduates
up each year to age 65, where an
employee with at least 10 years
of service would retire with
1.68% of his average salary per
year for each year of service.
Commissioner B o b Holland
balked at making a decision Tues-
day night, saying he wanted to
investigate the City going back
10 years to make their initial
contribution. "We have six em-
ployees who have been with the
City over 10 years and a few
who fall in between five and
ten years service. They would
have to work another five years
to become eligible for retirement
pay even after their many years
of loyal service".
Holland's point was agreed to
by the remainder of the Board
and they agreed to delay any de-
cision as to how far back the
initial payments would go until
further investigation of the cost
involved was made.
All of the Board agreed that
the retirement system was need-
ed for City employees which
would be in addition to social
The City's Police and Fire De-
ments would not be affected by
the proposed new program. They
are already covered by a state-
wide program adopted by the
Board a few years back.
The retirement program will
be discussed and examined
again at the next meeting on

Drain Being Installed to
Alleviate Water Problem
Workmen of the Department of Transporta-
tion are shown above preparing forms to con-
struct concrete bulkheads at the end of huge
drainage pipes laid under Niles Road to carry off
excessive water from the Port St. Joe area.
The huge pipe shown to the right of the
workmen is one of three laid under Niles Road
to remove excessive rain water from that area
of Port St. Joe lying East of Garrison Avenue.
While the area has always suffered from impro-
per drainage, the area's "drain ecology" was
really upset with the widening of Highway 71
East of the City and the construction of the new
Port St. Joe High School. Both projects interrupt-
ed several avenues of escape for excessive water
in this area, causing acute problems during times
of heavy rains.
Two years ago, the county started digging a
new drain ditch near the courthouse, to empty
into George Washington Branch and eventually
find its way to Depot Creek. The project was
stymied near the South City Limits by easement
problems. When these problems were solved
and the ditch continued, it was- then found that
pipes under Niles Road east of Ward Ridge, were
not large enough to carry off the tremendous
amount of water which collects in this troubled
area in time of heavy rain storms.
The county then prevailed upon the Depart-
ment of Transportation to increase drainage un-
der the road. These huge seven foot steel drain
pipes being placed under Niles Road should do the
JC's Planning for National
Week; Begin OYM Search
Jaycee Week will be observed
in Port St. Joe next week, Jan-
uary 25-30. Jaycee Week is the
one week of the year when every-
one in the community should say
"thanks" to the Jaycees in recog-
nition for all the hard work and
effort put into the many pro-
jects undertaken by this organi-
zation of young men.
The Jaycees were first formed
in January 1920 by an inspired
and dedicated St. Louis banker
by the name of Henry Giessen-
bier. Through his work and de-
dication, the club grew to a thriv-
ing 36 members and today it pays
a living tribute to him with a
club roster of 6,800 and a com-
bined total of over 260,000 mem-
bers throughout the nation.
Port St. Joe's Jaycees were or-
ganized in 1960 by R. H. Ellzey
with 25 members and has been
an active organization in local
affairs since that time.
The work of this strong civic
organization is best put into
words by the Jaycee Creed itself
which says: "We Believe: That
faith in God gives meaning and
purpose to human rife; That the
brotherhood of man transcends
the sovereignty of nations; That
economic justice can best be won
by free men through free enter-
prise; That government should be
of laws rather than of men; That
earth's greatest treasure lies in
human personality; And that ser-
vice to humanity, is the best way

Wilder, principal of Port St. Joe
High School in 1969 and 1970.
The Jaycees urge everyone to

honor when the ballot boxes are
set out. The candidate does not
have to be a Jaycee.

Fed Up With Antics
Last Thursday an Associated Press story hit some
newspapers concerning refusal of FSU basketball players
to 'stand for the playing of the National Anthem in a
game with Tulane/ Many newspapers didn't carry this
first story since it was put on the wire after their dead-
It was a relief to us when AP released a subsequent
story saying that the first release was a mis-interpretation.
The reporter writing the story heard bits and snatches of
conversation in the Tulane'gym and put the story together
as FSU refusal to appear, f6r the playing of the National
Anthem. The corrected story related that the teams were
,not present- because the Tulane coach had asked that the
SAnthem be played while the teams were in the dressing
room so his team would be ready to start playing immed-
.iately on coming back into the gym.
While it was a relief to hear that FSU athletes, only
; 100 miles from Pbrt St. Joe werenot refusing to give the
honor 4u'e our National Anthem, it was also interesting to
witness' the reaction to' the first story released. The re-
Saction'was considerable. Almost to a man, those we heard

tion off the team, revoking their
ing ball and let them make their

scholarships for play-
way in school as best
It was also interesting to note that this reaction
wasn't all gum bumping. Many letters and telegrams
were sent to the FSU athletic director, many from Port
St. Joe, demanding, and requesting that action be taken
against the athletes. This reaction was even more mean-
ingful by virtue that FSU has a winning team.
It's gratifying to know that the ordinary man in the
street is finally fed up with such antics among college
students. It is also gratifying to read in the paper pub-
. lished the very next day of a growing organization of
college and professional athletes dedicated to promoting
the Christian life through athletics. Athletics, in a pure
sense, are meant to be vehicles to teach team work and
fair play. This is why they continue to draw almost
'unanimous support from fans of every walk ok life and
also Why, they draw the brick-bats of displeasure when
such actions 'as eroniously reported laqt Thursday are
connected with those who are in the limelight of the pub-
lice eye through athletics.

According to a report published
May 27, 1970 by the State of Flor-
ida Department of Health and Re-
habilitative Services, the percent-
age of persons in State Hospitals
age 65 and over in Florida has risen
steadily from 18.1% in 1953 to
31.1% in 1969. The majority of
these persons could be a part of
our society, if only they had a
place to return to from the State
Hospital. Foster Homes provide one
answer to this problem.
The Department' of Health and
Rehabilitative Services is seeking
private homes to provide home-like
environments for adults who, be-
cause of physical, mental or emo-

We here in America seem to be becoming obsessed with this
problem of ecology. We have lived on the land for centuries and
now, during the past five years, it has dawned upon us that one day
we may tise, everything up in future years everything from the
ground on which to grow our food, to the foliage which manufac-
tures the oxygen we breathe, to that 30" of space seating manu-
facturers say is necessary for us to sit down.
Over in Fernandina, where "ecology" has hit' home, the em-
ployees of Rayonier have decided that jobs and income are more
important than damage which might be inflicted by dumping wastes
from the mill two miles at sea. The State of Florida cited Ray-
onier, along with many other industries for polluting the environ-
ment with their outfall. Rayonier came up with a plan to pipe
their wastes two miles out to sea and let it be absorbed by the
sea .water. This plan met with the approval of the Florida Board
of Air and Water Pollution and permission was granted. Now the
State of Georgia has objected to the plan, and Florida has removed
its approval of the waste disposal plan. The alternative will be to
come up with a substitute plan or shut down the plant since
the citation still stands.
Rayonier employees say jobs are more important than the pos-
sible danger to the ocean water. Every other concerned individ-
ual preoccupied with, the possibilities of destroying our ecology,
who does not depend on Rayonier for a living disagrees with them.
In last week's issue of The Star, Russell kay in his weekly
column was wondering how the world could continue to provide for
the population growth. This population growth is blamed on many
things, but we cast the real blame at the feet of indoor plumb-
ing and pinicillin. In other words our population problems are
linked to our mortality rate as well as our reproductive'rate.
Japan. China, India-in fact all of Asia-were reproducing at
a far greater rate than America for centuries before America was
ever discovered. They are still not standing on one another's head,
nor pushing one another into the sea. But neither do they use as
much pinicillin nor have as many indoor toilets per capital as do
To think that we will breed ourselves out of a' place to lay
down to sleep or produce enough food for our next meal doesn't
worry me. If we! were not worried about the possibility of such
a thing happening, then I would be worried.
A good example of American s use of our surroundings was
given last week. Wesley Thompson was speaking at Rotary Club
Thursday, telling of Florida Power's nuclear power plant which
will be built over the next three years at Crystal River. The plant
will have a capacity of 850,000 kilowatts and will supply about half
the entire power demands of the Florida Power system.
The same night, over TV, a news item was presented concern-
,ing the dedication of the Aswan High Dam in Egypt, capable of
producing 1 million KW which would supply half the'power de-
mands of the entire nation of Egypt.
Florida Power's new plant is just 150,000 KW smaller than
the Aswan High Dam and. will supply only half the power supply
for less than one-third the State of Florida. There ought to be a
coml rison there easy enough for anyone to see.

TALLAHASSEE Warm 'south-
ern hospitality can reduce winter
driving hazards and save the lives
of many Florida drivers and visi.
tors alike, said the Florida High-
way Patrol today.
Colonel Reid Clifton, director of
the Florida Highway Patrol said,
"Hospitality given drivers and pe-
destrians who are strangers in our
state will provide a safer environ-
ment on our highways and reduce
the chance of traffic accidents dur-
ing the busy winter tourist season."
Millions of visitors come to Flor-
ida each .year and most arrive by
automobile. The Patrol Commander
urged all Floridians to "put them-
selves in the visitor's car. Tourists
who are in unfamiliar surroundings
may become distracted from their
driving as they search for road
signs and turnoffs. Local drivers
should practice courtesy and be
prepared for the unexpected when
spotting such drivers, giving them
more driving room than usual."
"To obey the law yourself is
only half of a driver's obligation.
You have a responsibility to pre-
vent an accident if you can even
when the other driver is at fault,"
Mldebt Investments 'That Y 'ld
1n June of last year is given m i
state chamber's Weekly Business
'Reiiew as 1,115,427. This means
that ten Floridians but of every 61
were receiving a Social Security
check either as a retiree, a disabled
worker or a beneficiary. The na-
tional averabe is ten persons outi
of every 78 residents.
Social Security payments to
Floridians were officially estimated
-at $1138.8 million during the month
of June 1970, most of which was
spent in the state. This amount is
19 per cent more than the pay-
ments for the previous December
and slightly more than the nation-
"Social Security payments tradi-
tionally present 9 per cent of the
total payroll of working Floridians
compared with 6 per cent national-
ly," Spencer said.
