PORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA- THURSDAY, OCTOBER 3, 1974
Gulf Property Values
Increased by 33 pct.
By now, almost every property owner
in Gulf County has received the news of
new valuations placed against their pro-
perty for taxing purposes. In almost
every instance the valuations are up,
anywhere from 10 percent to over 100
percent. Tax Assessor Samuel A. Patrick
has released figures on the total county
valuation which reflects an average
increase of nearly one third.
After four months of going over all
real and personal property in the County,
with the aid of the Florida Revenue
Department, Patrick's office has releas-
ed a total property valuation of $97,358,-
830.00 for the county. A year ago, the
property valuations were ,$63,441,312.00,
for an increase of $33,917,428.00.
The re-valuation of the entire county
came at the orders of the State Revenue
Department which has stated all proper-
ty in the state must be on the tax rolls at
100 percent. Patrick has been under fire
from the State of Florida for the past few
years to bring Gulf's valuation up to state
standards. Each year, he has increased
valuations to a degree, but this year was
forced to re-value all property in the
county to the satisfaction of the Revenue
Patrick says he has filed the results
of the re-valuation with the Revenue
Department, but thus far has received no
official approval. Patrick says he expects
the work to be approved, however, since
the re-valuation was done under the
guidance of Department of Revenue
Patrick says he expects a good deal
of objections during the next two weeks,
when property owners can legally object
to the valuation placed against, their
propertyv4,-tWe.used the same ,ardstick

provements", he pointed out.
The assessors used the formula of
location, size and improvements to arrive
at their valuations. "We physically mea-

types of construction called for different
formulas at figuring worth.
Patrick said his office tried to arrive
at the resale value today of property in
order to arrive at a valuation for the tax
OWNERS MAY OBJECT
Patrick said property owners may
enter objections if they feel their assess-
ments are too high. Property owners
have two weeks after the receipt of their
valuation cards in which to file their
objections. Property owners then fill out
a petition of objection and are assigned a
hearing date before the equalization
If objects aren't filed within the
specified time limit, the objection must
wait until next year to be heard.
SHOULD LOWER MILEAGE
The effect of the re-valuation will be
to lower taxing millages in the county.
This isn't to say the property owner will
pay less tax. Since a mill will bring in 33
percent more tax revenue now than in
the past, and since all governing bodies
have the authority to levy from eight to
ten mills, the tax take can increase.
This year, in the Port St. Joe area.
the City of Port St. Joe is the only taxing
body to increase its tax dollar levy. The
City budget shows taxes to be collected
will be increased by about $20,000. County
and School Board tax levies will be just
slightly under last year.
All governing bodies in the county
have been delayed until receipt of the
Only the County Commission and the,

nill- cis opposed to 8.7 for last year. The
City of Port St. Joe has tentatively set a
mill rate of 5.5 for a two mill reduction
from last year. Since Patrick is still
finding errors in the valuations and since
several changes will be made in the
equalization hearings the final figure
cannot be given yet, by which a firm mill
levy can be made.

City Tentatively Sets Millage Rate at 5.5
City Clerk Charles Brock told the City
Commission Tuesday night that he had
received a tentative valuation from Coun-
ty Tax Assessor Samuel A. Patrick, but
that nothing was firm enough as yet to
peg a millage rate to the new budget.
Brock said, that as it appears now, the
City must levy approximately 5.5 mills to
finance the proposed expenditures. The
City levied 7.5 mills last year.
Brock said final figures should be
available by the next meeting date of.
Tuesday, October 15, at which time, the
Commission may officially set their
Brock also said the City is levying
$20.000 more in taxes this year than they
did last year, in financing the general
Fund budget of $632.871.00. Attor-
ney William J. Rish told the Commission
they must advertise the fact they plan to
raise taxes and have a public hearing
before they can finally do so.

New Property Values
The Bible says that during the
last days there shall be weeping
and wailing and gnashing of teeth.
Anybody who stirred about Gulf
County the first part of this week
kould have thought the last days
had arrived, had he applied only
this portion of prophecy to his
It wasn't the last days which
caused the expressions of emotion
here in Gulf County, though. The
weeping was caused by the ex-
tremely high property valuations
mailed out this past week end. The
wailing was due to the foreboding
of things to come on the tax bill
and the gnashing of teeth (along
with a smattering of cussing) was
at the Tax Assessor.
Assessment of property took a
dramatic jump, with almost every-
one receiving a hike in the taxable
value of his property. The State of

We can't blame the Tax Asses-
sor for not wanting the stigma hung
on him for such huge increases in
valuations in one year. From the
grumbling we have heard since last
Friday, the Assessor didn't escape
much by calling, :on the State men
to do the re-valuation work. Today,
the Assessor's name is mud. To-
morrow, it may be "Good Old
Sammy" once again. Today,
though, it is "Mud".
It has been our observation
that Sammy Patrick puts up one
facade, but actually he is some-
thing else. One thing he is, he is
knowledgeable about the value of
property. There has been grumb-
ling in the pastgjout valuations,
but usually only minor gripes. The
valuation which came out last week
caused king size gripes because
few felt a fair valuation had been
made against their property.
It is our opinion that Patrick
himself could have done a much
better and more equitable job of
...re-valuing: ,the propenty-, of- the,,
county' fdr tax purposes. At any.
Rate, it was his job to do so. The

I wonder what it is about such a civilization
that realizes that the Yankee giant, or the
Japanese, or the English, or others won't come

defiance to the Arab's pricing practices. It
could be done, you know. But, the Yankees are
patient, and spend their time trying to per-
suade a reluctant Arab to take less money for
something only he has. For a people who have
spent their entire history trading, this will
probably prove to be an impossible task.
The Arabs may just be painting themselves
into a corner, though. The free world nations
use three fourths of the world's oil production.

President Gerald Ford may only think he
got into trouble when he pardoned Nixon or
proposed amnesty, if he goes along with the 0Oc
increase in gasoline taxes.
Some have even proposed increasing gas-

to $1.15 per gallon. I can't understand the
reasoning of this, unless it is merely to
discourage the purchase of gasoline. There's no
denying, a $1.15 per gallon price tag would
discourage the purchase of gasoline. It might
even get so binding some people would start
walking instead of driving. That's pretty
serious in this mobile age.
Anyhow, back to the President. Gerald
Ford and the American people have their
hands full if they hope to stem inflation in just
a short period of time. (The short period of
time being, before next Presidential election
day.) With the entire world in the throes of
inflation, it doesn't seem likely we will shake

The thing which really needs attention,
though is shortages of many items it takes to
do business with every day. In our business, for
instance: it's almost impossible to buy a paper
clip from the wholesaler. File folders are in
short supply. Staples are growing as scarce as
hen's teeth and many paper items (the more
common, less expensive kinds) are almost
non-existant. These are small items, but vital
to doing business. Also, there's no excuse for
their being short.
The St. Joe Paper Company is having
trouble getting chemicals. They are especially
short of salt cake. I had a half-full box of salt
at home which had gotten wet and formed into
a cake, and I offered it for their use. They said
it was the wrong kind of salt.
Frenchie and I rode up to Macon Saturday

While Florida is getting 'to the position where it
is sophisticated enough to have two strong
parties, here in Gulf County, we have to
contend with only one. So, the primaries elect
our public servants.
In all likelihood, all of my favorite candi-
dates did not get elected. I did cast my vote for
those I thought would do the best job. Now, I'll
spend the remainder of the terms of office
decided upon Tuesday doing what I can to help
those in office. If they don't please me, I'll let
them know. I think that is the proper relation-
ship between public servant and citizen. Citi-
zens failing to take an interest in public
functions is what leads to politicians becoming
convinced of the fact the office they hold is
their particular private property rather than a
trust of the people.

GI Home Loans Must
Be Paid Promptly
Here is an important notice
for you veterans who are pay-
ing on a GI Home Loan says
W. B. Mackall. Director of

sion of Veterans Affairs.
Your Veterans Administra-

quires that each monthly
payment must be made by

date. There is no "grace
period" for these payments.
Your loan contract also pro-
vides for a late charge of four
per cent of any installment
when paid more than fifteen'
(15) days after the due date.
While the Veterans Admini-
stration has not invoked this
provision of the loan contract
in the past, effective August

will be assessed a late charge
if paid more than fifteen (15)
days after the due date. Late
charges will appear on
monthly billing notices one

cural of such charges. Please
pay your monthly install-
ments on time so that your

Robinson, Social Security,
Field Representative for Gulf
Almost 19 million married
women have jobs outside
their homes compared to 1214
million in 1960, according to
the U. S. Department of

"Working women build
social security disability, sur-
vivors. retirement, and Medi-
care protection for them-
selves and their families,"
Robinson said. "More mar-
ried women work now than in
1960 because families are
smaller and there are more
jobs for women and more day
care facilities for children."
Monthly social security
benefits can be paid to a wife

either foam. or a fibrous filler
for flotation. These buoyant
fillers trap body heat as ef-
