as well as the rich. The middle class wage earner is caught

"It's about my salary,' Mr. Goodie. I wonder if you
could give me a decrease. I know, sir. I wouldn't ask
if it wasn't important, but I sure could use less money."
According. to testimony made recently by Auditor
General Ernest Ellion of the State Comptroller's office,
Gulf County has had the largest increase in its assessed
valuation against real and,personal property of any coun-
ty in the State of Florida.
According to Ellison's report, Gulf's valuation as com-
pared with actual cash value has increased 14 percent to
83 per cent of actual cash value last year. While state
law calls for 100 percent of cash value be assessed against
property for taxing purposes, we would suspect that Gulf's
abrupt increase has also placed the county near the top
in, true value assessments. -
Although the taxes aren't easy to pay, we aren't belly-
aching at their present value, even though we do consider
that this high valuation, puts Gulf at a certain disadvan-
tage insofar as attracting new industry to the county is
concerned. We will have plenty of company in our belly-
aching should the valuation-and the taxes-go higher
than they presently are.
It's getting close to budget time for the various po-
litical subdivisions in Gulf County including the county,
the school board and the two municipalities. By the end
of Jhly, all of these:various budgets are usually pretty well
set for the coming year.

"I was hoping for a $25 cut in salary."
"Twenty-five dollars! That's a big slice, Smedley.-
What have you done to merit it?"
"I've worked for the company 23 years, Mr. Goodie.
And I've never let you down. My work has always been
up to standard."
"I realize that, Simedley. But $25! Wouldn't you be
satisfied with a $15 cut? We have a budget problem right
now. We're already below last year's salary figure. And
I hear the union is furious, tax-wise."
"Mr. Goodie, a $15 cutback is better ,than nothing,
but my wife and I had our hearts set on a $25 decrease,"
"How about $20?"
"If I made $25 less, we'd be eligible for an apart-
ment in the city's new development, the one downtown

would qualify for a government scholarship, and we
would get 1is teeth fixed."

to)play with in its 10-mill ceiling set by the state. Even
though the city faces major expenditures in the next few
years getting certain programs accomplished, such as the
new sewage disposal plant, the City is getting along fairly
well on what it is presently collecting-in taxes.'
Trhe county and the school board are two other mat-
ters, entirely. Both are at or over their 10-mill cap and
both faced with requests for'more money. The only way
more money will be available is for an increase in property
valuations; which we have already been told are near the
highest in the state.
Both these bodies are regular targets of requests
which will require more money tax money. As a "for
instance", the County Commission can already see the re-
quests being shaped up to provide private secretarial help
for Civil Defense, the Veteran's Service officer and various
other small departments in county government. What
they may have to wind up doing is to combine all these
small departments under one supervisor with one secre-
tary who could easily do all the work necessary.
This isn't advocating such a move, it is just to point
out that many requests are coming. all perfectly valid
requests in the eyes of the one making them.

percentage of these so-called

There's always two things which will catch up to
you your sins and your errors. Last week we made
the mistake of putting a label on our daughter Catherine's
horse, when we really didn't know what breed or class it
was. We labeled it a "Tennessee Walker, or Trotter or
something like that".
Horse expert David Rich corrected (or rather en-
lightened) us Thursday afternoon by sagely informing
us that the horse was a quarter, horse. You could have
fooled me ... it looks like a whole horse to me.
Senator William Proxmire and his buddies pushed
$864 million of our tax dollars down the drain last week
"for the sake of ecology". $864 million that's almost
a billion dollars and of course you aren't really talking
money, anymore unless you are talking in the billions.
Millions are just used for change.
Proxmire and his buddies succeeded in killing the 4
SST airplane. They claimed that it would be a potential"
danger to the ecology.
I never planned on riding the SST, but it has usually .
,proven true with experiments of this kind, that the so-
called "spin off" of new products and technical knowledge
usually justifies the expenditure, whether or not the prime
target is met.
We'd really like to know how Mr. Proxmire and his
troops are going to keep the Russians and the French
from continuing with their faster-than-4ound aircraft.
They, too, are working on such a machine and if the SST
would be-foul the atmosphere and the decibels around us
the Russian and French versions of the SST will surely
do so too. How are you going to stop them, Senator?
What are you going to do when the U. S. gets behind in
speedy bombers? Will you then vote a crash program
to spend twice the money now needed to continue the
I enjoyed a visit last week from a group of visiting
foreign foresters and soil chemists who visited the St. Joe
Paper Company pine tree fertilization experimental plot
near Port St. Joe last Tuesday. The visitors, from Nor-
way, Sweden, Finland, Nigeria, South Africa, Vietnam,
and all the Commonwealth countries were escorted by
people from the University of Florida. They were interl-0
ested in our pine production in Gulf County and they
were interesting to listen to and watch.
One forester from Ireland told me he had witnessed
the planting of the millionth acre in pines in Florida a
few days before. "That's the target 'for our entire coun-
try", he said, "a million acres in planted pines."

Open-pollinated varieties were
largely replaced 15 to 20 years

had fewer lodging problems and
were usually more disease resis-

The controversial tax ratio stu-
dy mandated by the 1969 legis-
lature brought Florida counties
an average two per cent closer
to standard tax assessment, Au-
ditor General Ernest Ellison tes-
tified last week.
Ellison told a Circuit Court
hearing there were some notable
exceptions to the trend.
The testimony came in a suit
filed by several counties which
would lose state school funds as
a result of the ratio study. Elli-
son is a' co-defendant in the suit
and was called at first witness
for the plaintiffs.
Ellison said assessments in
Gulf County were 69 per cent
of true value when the study be-
gan, and rose abruptly to 83 per
cent last year. He said this 14
per cent gain was caused by fig-
uring personal property such as
trucks and machinery into the
tax base along with real estate.
He said the Gulf County in-
crease was the highest in the
state, followed by 11'per cent
increases in Wakulla and Taylor
