The judge then directed the
not guilty verdict.

The'advent of the railroads on

Again .the Apalachicola River
acted as a dividing line between
the two payinents which stretch-

ownership by Forbes, West of
the Apalachicola River was ques-

was held for the area.
The St. Joseph and Iola Rail-

most of the land, planning to re-

secretly bought up all the water

Still The Best
Sometimes we get .to thinking our nation is going
to the dogs in so far as personal liberty and freedoms are
concerned. And, it's' true, we are more regimented than
we have been in the past But, then, there is more peo-
ple in the United States now, And more laws are needed
in an attempt to protect the rights of everyone to as full
San extent as possible.
Freedom of the individual, too, is relative we suppose.
For instance, one has only to talk to those who have vis-
ited other nations to Jearn something of just how good
we have it.
'The other day we were talking to Everett Lamber-
son who is going back to Brazil in a short while as a mis-
sionary. In his work there 'in Brazil, Everett operates

regulated in Brazil as they are in the United States by

atory about the .government or any of its members. He
said that co ime ts such as are common in the United
States concerning leading figures like Nixon, Agnew, F
bright, Kennedy, McGovern, etc., just wouldn't be to
ated by the government in Brazil. And Brazil is c
sidered to be a fairly "free" country.
Lamberson went on to say that bad news could
be reported without government approval. Should
unemployment figures rise, as they have in the U. S.
would be hushed up until the government said rele
it. And so it goes.,
In another instance, we were questioning Dr. Joe H

'Sometines it takes reports like that to make us

Listening to Representative William J. Rish recently
in a talk to the Rotary Club, it is apparent that the auto-
mobile insurance in our state is not only in a sorry state
where rates are'concerned, but rather the entire structure
by which rates are set need to be revamped. As he re-
ports it, raising or lowering the rates is almost secondary
to, othei needs in the industry as they are associated with
the people of the state who pay for the policies.
Rish stated that the rates aren't out of line consider-
ing the way the coverage is set up. But he thought
there could be some corrections made which would help
the average auto owner and insurance customer.
As a "for instance", Rish said that a study has shown
-that 80% of all automobile accidents in the state total
$600.00 and less per total claim. He pointed out that the
large part of this was taken up in appraisals by adjus-
ters, legal fees, and expenses involved in serving and pay-
ing the claim. The other 20% of accidents are the ones
who take the gigantic bite out. of the insurance dollar,
but that 80% is draining off the policy owner's money
faster than he can put it back.

increased 48 per cent in the last
20 years, the farmer gets only
10 per cent more in income for

to place a deductible on liability insurance policies .m
like there is on collision insurance. The thinking is 1
that the average accident costs more in investigating
claim, getting bids, and going through the proper

ing a major role in high insurance costs. The.deduct

They found the doves. Droves and droves of them
that were no more skittish at the sound of a shotgun,
than I am of a nice, medium rib eye steak and that's
not very skittish, let me tell you.
But back to the sun. Joe and B. Roy came back tell-

duck, shoot, as well as doves) and having a fish fry one
night while there, dining on a 25 pound "perch". Joe
said they even had the skillet there to cook that 25 pound
It had to be the sun. or maybe it was "dove fe-

Statistics show that unsignalized
crossings are clearly more dan-
gerous than those with sophisticat-
ed warning.deviceds and the danger
is directly related to train and traf-
fic volume. Sight obstructions at
some crossings increase the danger.
The Department of Transporta-
tion program will add or improve
controls at 160 crossings in the
state. DOT has;' investigated every
railroad crossing on the state sys-
tem and a set of priorities has been
established for revamping the cros-
"This system of priorities will
allow the railroads to program the
work into their schedules," Muel-
ler said. ,
In Florida, the railroad is the
contractor for any reconstruction
work to be done on rail crossings.
Mueller said the railroads are co-
operating enthusiastically in the
program since it allows them to
systematically improve those lo-
cations which have been identified
as most hazardous.
ITop priority in the state has been
assigned to a LeJeune Road cros-
sing, in Miami. Of the first 20, six
crossings are in either Dade orl
Broward Counties, six are in Jack-
sonville. and 'two in Tampa. Other
crossings are located in 40 counties

County Commissioner Walter
Graham told the Board Tuesday
night that the extension of Ave-

suggested that the county put a
coat of asphalt and slag on 'the
road before the road bed is dam-
aged beyond repair.
Graham said, "we can make a
good road here if we put a seal-
er on top and put asphalt and
slag down. We have a good road
bed and I hate to see it damaged
to the point .where we have to
start over from scratch."

About the time St. Joseih was
set up to do business, more rail-

sale was held In 1842 for the
St. Joseph and Lake Wimico

TOWN LIVES ON
This wasn't the end of 'the
town which had-once had a pop-
ulation of around 2,000. It was
1845 before the U. S. Post Office
Department closed the Post Of
fice in St. Joseph. The settlement
continued to get mail service by
packet boat however, with rec-
ords showing the service still in
existence as late as 1854; and
possibilities are the service con-
tinued even longer. Unger said
he has seen tax receipts where
taxes were being paid on homes
in old St. Joseph as late as 1855.
i The Confederates operated a
salt works on the Bay during the
Civil War which indicates' that
the area was still inhabited up
until 1870. "Records are very
sketchy of that era", Unger said,

Incoming president R. H. Ell-

Rogers said, "We don't want
to keep the kids from having a

said, "there are things going on

he had heard no more complaints
