The Port St. Joe City Commission issued a call
for bids Tuesday night for the purchase of the machinery
and equipment to be used in construction of Port St. Joe's
new $7 million Wastewater Treatment Plant. The Board
has issued the bid call to take advantage of lower prices
in the President's Price Freeze.
The bid calls for the purchase
of unit sub-stations and trans-
formers, filters and vacuum sys-
tems, incinerator system and its
erection, clarifier mechanisms,
clarifier feed pumps, aerators
and presses, The bids are return-,
able to the City Hall by 4:30 p.m.

The Tuesday call for bids is
the first in three steps toward
getting the construction project
started. 'The construction bid
will be issued in December of
this year and the contract award-
ed the first of January, 1972.
The City has already applied
to Housing and Urban Develop-
ment, a Federal agency for a
55% grant and a 25% loan for
partial financing of the project.

The plant is designed to bring
all three customers into compli-
ance with a directive issued
against them by the state Air
and Water Pollution Control
The new plant is designed to
properly treat 40 million gallons
of waste water each day.
Repayment, of financing for
the system will be through char-
ges made to the three parties
for use of the plant. The char-
ges will be based on a ratio of
use. An estimate shows that the
pity of Port St. Joe, who will
own the plant, will use about
two per cent of the projected
flow through the disposal sys-
tem. Glidden-Durkee will use ap-
proximately two percent of the
flow and St. Joe Paper Company

For Financing of Systems
Just how far front actuality

According to the County's rep-
resentative in these matters,

gineers Associates, Oak Grove is
92 on the financing list while
White City is 86th, St. Joe Beach
76th, Wewahitchka number 60
and Port St. Joe 56. Both Port
St. Joe and Wewahitchka are on
the list to improve their sewage
treatment systems to comply
with new state standards.
Nations pointed out to the
County Commission last Tuesday
night that any community's
place on the list is deceiving.
Two factors govern the actual
release of money for grants or
loans under the federal program.
First, the community affected
must have its plans and specifi-
cations ready to call for bids be-
fore they can be considered for
financing. Oak Grove, White
City, the Beaches and the City
of Port St. Joe have plans in
this stage. As a matter of fact
the City of Port St. Joe will be
calling for bids in December,
according to the schedule set out
by their engineers.

basically the financing list re-

Pig In A Poke
November 2 is drawing nigh, and Governor Reubin
Askew is beginning to beat the tub in favor of his proposed
income tax on incorporated business in the State of Flor-
ida. 'Only last week, he issued a passionate appeal to the
Democrats of the State to put up a united front in favor
of the tax, already concluding that the Republicans would
For the record, we oppose it, too, even though our
voter registration card has us listed as a Democrat.
David Cook, Associate Editor of the Tallahassee Dem-
ocrat brought out possibly the best reason to oppose the
measure in his column about two weeks ago. Cook pointed
out that no discussion has been implemented to explain the
proposed measure. He went further to state that the
only bill drawn to implement the tax was distributed in
the House during the last days of this year's regular ses-
sion, but it disappeared before the press or public could
All that is known for sure at this present time is that
the amendment specifies a five per cent tax, which can
be changed at will by three-fifths vote of both houses of
the Legislature; and that at least the first $5.000 of tax-
able income will be exempt.
That's not very much to know about a measure that
could very well lead to a personal income tax being levied;
and has.Aed to just that in most of the other states that
have adopted the corporate income tax.
The main bait being dangled before our eyes like a
carrot on a stick, is the several million dollars the mea-
sure will bring into the tills of the State of Florida. Suppos-
edly, this will be,.a "painless tax" because the man in the
street will not have to pay it. It will come from "big
business". For the thinking man, that ploy is no good,'
since he knows that all expense of doing business, includ-
ing taxes, is passed on to the consumer and the man in
the street will, indeed, have to pay this tax. ,
Another aspect is 'that $5,000 exemption. It doesn't
take too large a business to make over $5,000 a year. If
the business is large enough to need incorporation, it
probably makes over $5,000 a year. The big business isn't
all that's going to be hit. Many small businesses will
feel still another tax pinch in this day of increasing effort
for the smaller business zman just to survive.
The Governor is, in effect, asking us to write the state
a blank check; to approve a pig in a poke. We don't buy
When "No Fault" Becomes Law
Come November 1 the "big six" auto insurers in
Florida will begin writing the "no fault" auto insurance

And, cqmne Janiuari 1, some Florida motorists (unless
they dig into their pocketbooks and take precautionary
measures in time) are going to be in for a rude awakening.
Look into the future and'take the hypothetical case
of Joe Motorist. In many a two-car family, one car is an
old one which the husband drives to work and back. Joe's
commuting vehicle is, say, a 1964 sedan, and its going
rate on the market is $500. Like many people in such
circumstances, Joe carries liability insurance but has no
collision insurance because he concludes it's impractical
on a car that price. -
Joe heads for work, on Monday, January 3, a brisk
winter morning ini North Florida. He had noticed in the
newspaper that "no fault" took effect on this morning,
but he gave only fleeting thought to the mandated "15
percent discount", -smiled at th thought of saving a few

Under the Florida "no fault" plan, Joe is prohibited
by law from suing the driver responsible for wrecking
Joe's car; the law permits suit only when damages exceed
$550 and Joe's car was worth only $500.
What may especially irritate Joe is that, before "no
fault" took effect-in fact if the accident had taken place
the wek before--Joe could have expected to be fully
reimbursed for damage (and, in such a case, likely a quick
claims adjustment with no lawsuit .involved.)
' The only thing Joe can do, now sadder but more in-
formed about the "no fault law", is to (a) shell out $500
to buy himself another car to replace the one lost and
then (b) start buying collision insurance as well as lia-
bility insurance on his second car.
The concept of "no fault" insurance will raise a lot
of questions after it actually starts into operation and
situations that were only hypothetical before turn into

/JACKSONVILLE Two thirds
of Florida's 780 miles of developed
beach shoreline are suffering
from -erosion problems and nearly
210 miles of shoreline erosion are
considered to be in a critical
stage, according to a South Atlan.
tic-Gulf Region shoreline study
just completed by the U. S. Army
Corps of Engineers.
The South Atlantic-Gulf shore-
line study is one of nine area
studies covering the coastal area
of the United States which was
accomplished by the Army Engine-
ers at the direction of Congress.
Purpose of the shoreline study was
to develop an inventory, of' the
Copies of the inch-thick docu-
ment have been mailed to state ancd
county officials by District En
gineer Col. A. S. Fullerton.
Florida's inventory shows the
state has 1,266 miles of Atlantic
and Gulf shoreline, plus 4,999
miles of bay and estuary shore
line. There are 781 miles of beach
es and 484 miles of ocean-Gull
shoreline without beaches.
Critical erosion is taking place
on 209 miles of shoreline, and
some degree of erosion is docu-
mented at an additional 332 miles
of beach shoreline. This leaves
623 miles of shoreline which are
not affected by erosion, primarily
the marsh shoreline along the Gulf
north of Tampa and along the
state's Gulf panhandle.
Development \along the Florida
shoreline varies from intensely
populated resort and recreational
beaches to nearly natural wilder-
ness conditions. Much of the coast-
line is developed for tourist and
visitor accommodations and Flor-
ida's attraction as a tourist state
depends to a large degree upon its
beaches. Some of the most valuable
beachfront in the nation is located
in the Miami area.
Typical of the state's worst ero-
sion problems are in Dade and
Duval Counties, where beach nour-
ishment projects have been under
consideration for several years.
Some 149 pages of the report are
devoted to Florida erosion pro-
'blems in each of the coastal coun-
ties. Maps and photos illustrate
reaches of the beach which are

PRAYER SERVICE (Wednesday)
by WESLEY R. RAMSEY
-. I walked into the barber shop the other day and ^
d it dawned on me that I hadn't seen Nelson in quite some
- time. I said, "Nelson, it dawns upon me that I haven't
seen you in some time." Thdt's what I said. Then I ask-
ed, "Where have you been?"
- "I've been in the hospital and home recuperating for
k four weeks", Nelson said.
I put on my sad face and commiserated with Nelson
by observing, "That's too bad, Nelson nothing serious
I hope". Notice I didn't pour it on too thick, since he had
already told me he had been out four weeks and here I
was making light of the enormity of his problem. In this
day and time, a person can get a heart transplant in four
weeks. But, I didn't have but 15 minutes to spare to get
a haircut and I knew that haircut was going to take just
as long as it took Nelson to tell me about his' four weeks
offwork. If Nelson's problem had been REALLY serious,
it could have been a four week haircut.
Nelson put on' that "want to see my scar" look and
said, "I had a cataract removed from my eye". He got
all the way to the neck shaving bit, giving me a blow by
blow of how a cataract affects one, what one has to go
through to get rid of it and wondering if he's going to be
one of those people who can't wear a contact lense when
it comes time to fit one to his repaired eye.
All of this was going on, but all I could think of was
"razor"! Here was a man who was blind in one eye and
just got through telling me how he HAD to have his glas-
ses on to see out of the other one, and the razor was creep-
ing closer and closer to my throat.
"That's enough", I said, and started to get down out
of the chair. "Wait", he said, "I haven't shaved your
neck, yet". "That's OK," I said, "We'll let it go until
you feel better". Nelson, in his usual gift at grasping
things, observed, "Don't worry, I can see fine now."
But when I think of the times I climbed in his chair
and he-being half blind-let that razor flirt around my
throat, I still could hardly make it back into the chair.
There was a headline in a recent issue of "United Pa-
e per", the trade paper of the United Papermakers and Pa-
e perworkers which said, "Members Urged to Remain Calm
9 During the 90-Day Wage Freeze". We would like to re- -
. port that our paper workers here in Port St. Joe are liv-
Sing up to this admonition to the letter. They are not ag-
gravating things by drawing down inflationary wages.
As a matter of fact, they have voluntarily reduced their j'
ordinary wage to below what it was prior to August 18.
President Nixon in no way can find a gripe with the lack
of patriotism of our paper makers. They are doing their
part to keep wages paid during the wage-price freeze to
a bare minimum.
We feel that they don't particularly feel patriotic
and would rather be tempting further inflation by draw-
ing those wages (though frozen) during this time of a
national monetary crisis. I know it would make me, hap-
py, if that means anything.
Can you imagine my chagrin when I drove all the way
to Perry Friday night to the football game, located the
football stadium, found a parking place where I could get
out after the game was over, climbed 18 rows high into
the air to find a seat, glanced down at a hard cement seat
and then was struck. I had three of those Band Boosters
foam rubber cushions at- two bucks a throw, two stadium
seats and a football-watching cushion with a rain poncho
concealed in its side, I received as a reward for buying so
much of a certain kind of paper. But they were all at
home. There I had all the accouterments of comfort ly-
ing at home in a closet and I was forcing myself into lett-
ing my tender behind be assaulted by that non-yielding
concrete seat for nearly two hours. So it goes.
The day of the mouse has arrived. Last Friday Dis-
new World opened in central Florida bringing Mickey
Mouse to Florida to cavort with the porpoises, the alliga-
tors, the mermaids and other and sundry animals.
If anything, Walt Disney was a business man. He
couldn't resist putting his Disney World in Florida when
he took a long look at how far the state has managed to
progress (synonymous with bringing in the "green") on
porpoises, alligators and the mythical mermaids. Mickey
had only the Hippies of California for a guarantee that

to purify air, stabilize soil, clarify
water and abate noise.
Since planted material is so im-
portant in the ecological balance
I would like to relate to you some
of the tips presented in the nur-
serymen's "Green Survival Pro-
What can one man do to reduce
air pollution? Don't burn your
leaves. Place them in your com-
post pile or spread them around
plants where their nutrients can
be recycled' by natural decompo-
sition. Surround yourself with life,
growing trees, shrubs, grasses and
flowers. These plants absorb gas-
eous air pollutants and are na-
ture's most efficient dust traps.
Encourage "Greenbelts" plant-
inigs of trees and shrubs -- be-
cause they have been found to be
effective smog fighters. Express
your choice for the preservation
or plantin gof1
serve water? Use the minimum a-
mount of water possible. There are
some times when plants require
irrigation; however, for most of
their life they will thrive on less
water than you might realize.
Water only when needed and water
thoroughly. Light, frequent water-
ing is inefficient because most of
the water will evaporate from the
surface and not be distributed in-
to the soil where it is stored for
use by plants. Use mulches around
your plants. Materials such as
grass clippings don't belong in
the garbage. Organic mulches can
add nutrition to the soil and keep
moisture in and also reduce weeds.
What about sight and sound pol-
lution? The homeowner who plants
a lawn and landscapes it with
trees, shrubs and flowers is mak-
ing war on ugliness. The battle a-
gainst visual pollution begins at
home. Take a hard look at your
home and neighborhood, and if
you don't like what you see, do
something about it as an indi-
vidual. Proper landscaping can re-
duce noise considerably. Plant parts
break up sound waves, change
their direction, and reduce their
intensity. Hedges, trees, shrubs,
grasses, vines and combinations of
these can be used as buffer plant-
ings to quiet your home grounds.
These are just a few of the tips
from the "Green Survival Pro-
gram". You will be hearing more
about this program and listen to
what it has to say because Green
Survival depends on you.

ATLANTA, GA.-Many price in-
creases made in apparent violation
of the wage-price freeze are ac-
tually made within the provisions
of the law ,the Region 4 Office of
the Office of Emergency Prepar-
edness reported here this week.
To clear up public misunder-
standing reflected in a large share
of complaints made by consumers,
Regional Director William H. Hol-
loway said this week it is legal to
raise prices to the highest level in
effect for a substantial number of
transactions (10 percent or more)
during the 30 day base period prior
to August 15. However, rentals are
considered on the basis of rent
charged for the individual unit
during the base period.
"This is not a new announce-
ment", Mr. Hollaway said, 'but we
feel that it should 1be repeated at
this time. In the areas of gasoline
price wars and grocery buying in
particular, some customers have
experienced what they considered
an illegal price increase".
Mr. Hollaway also pointed out
that the Economic Stabilization Act
of 1970 provides that prices, wages
rents and salaries need not be
lower than rates prevailing on
May 25, 1970. In some instances,
this may permit an increase above
the highest level of the 30 day
As a partial remedy to misunder-
standings by customers, Mr. Holla-
way urged that business establish-
ments adhere to the President's
Executive Order 11615 which re-
quires that each person selling or
providing commodities or services
maintain available for public in-
spection a record of the highest
prices or rents charged for such
or similar commodities or services
during the 30 day period.
If the customer questions the
ceiling price, he may ask the sel-
ler to produce these records, Mr.
Hollaway said. Then if the custo-
mer is convinced there is a viola-
tion, he may complain to a Local
Service and Compliance Center of
the Internal Revenue Service.

Your Electric Deposit EarnsYou 6% Interest Annually
Why does Florida Power require a deposit?
Florida Power does not bill in advance for
electric service. This means the bill you
receive is for electricity that has already
been used. The $25 deposit required of
new residential customers serves as a pay-
ment guarantee for the company. A rate
of 6% interest is paid annually on this de-
posit and is applied as a credit to the cus-
tomer's bill in June of each year.
If you are in such a tight financial condi-
tion, why are you building a large new
office building in St. Petersburg which
does not even produce electricity?
The new general headquarters complex in
St. Petersburg is the result of a decision
made over six years ago. Construction be-
gan in early 1970. Nearly 600 people will
work in this new facility. Presently, there
are 280 people in the 45-year-old head-
quarters building. Others will come from
,various leased and owned locations within
the city. By bringing people together, we
will be able to work more efficiently.
Do Florida Power employees receive a dis-
count on their electric bills?
, No. Florida Power employees are billed at
the same rates as all of the company's
Florida Power has been charged as having
the highest rates in the nation. How can
you ask for a rate increase under such
First of all, the charge is incorrect. We did
have a high rate problem at one time. The
most recent edition of the Federal Power
Commission's Typical Electric Bill report
shows the following rankings in the normal
residential consumption ranges:
250 kilowatt hours .. 30th in the nation
500 kilowatt hours .. 14th in the nation
750 kilowatt hours .. 13th In the nation
1000 kilowatt hours .. 20th in the nation
As for needing a rate increase, the com-
pany has not sought rate relief since 1953.
What temperature setting do you recom-
mend for electric heating?
This depends on the individual's prefer-
ence. For economy, set the thermostat at
the lowest comfortable temperature for
you (usually 72 75).
If you have any questions concerning your
electric service or our company in general,
please write Mr. A. P. Perez, president, at
our general headquarters, P. 0. Box 14042,

Belin Says Several Factors Keep
Paper Firms From Making Profits
PORT ST. JOE J. C. Belin,
president of Port St. Joe Paper
Co., s aid Tuesday increased
taxes, Presidents Nixon's price
freeze and labor problems are
handicapping his firm's attempts
to raise profits over early year
In a report, he said these three
factors are blocking- the corn.
pany's efforts to improve profits
despite a strong third-quarter
demand for paperboard and cor-
rugated shipping containers.
Belin said one of the most
burdensome financial problems
confronting Southeastern paper
manufacturers and box makers
is increased taxation.
"These (taxes) skyrocket year
after year." he said. "There is
no freeze on taxes. Ad valorem
increases and now the pos-
sibility of a corporate profits
levy in Florida are shocking."
Florida legislators have advo-
cated all kind of new taxes
without considering the detri-
mental effect they might have
on state industries, Belin said.
He said President Nixon's

With paperboard selling

Belin emphasized that the e
nomic outlook at Port St. J
Paper Co. is made even md
grim because of a strike whi
began the first week in Augu
"We limped through the fl
half of the year, as did gene
ly the other (firms), but t

Chances for an immedi
settlement between the pa]
mill and local union are. iot'
bright,. Belin said, basing
statement on the fact that
meetings are currently schedul-
ed between t h e bargaining
groups or their negotiators.
He noted that the unions in-
volved rejected the company's
offer and was subsequently trap-
ped in the wage freeze. If union
employees return to work, they
must comply '-with the Presi-
dent's wage directive, he said.
Plans for a comprehensive
modernization program at the
Port St. Joe plant have been set
back because of adverse econ-
omic conditions, Belin said.
When the facility began opera-
ting 30 years ago, he said, it was
one of the most modern in the
paper manufacturing industry.
Later, in the early 1950s, up-to-
date technological innovations
were made to decrease costs and
increase production, he said.
However, now, after two de-
cades, obsolescence has com-'
menced, he said.
"Modernization is necessary to
stay alive," Belin said. "There is
no way to compete in this in-
dustry without decreasing costs
by making improvements. These
will, of course, require large

With four minutes left in the,;
second period',the Sharks looked
like they were in trouble. A
Shark receiver fumbled a Perry
punt, -putting the Bulldogs on
the Shark 16. The line dug in
and held the Perry, attack for no
gain the first two downs. On -
third down, Murray' Smith and:
Rodney.Nobles charged the Per-
ry quarterback, Ratliff, and push-
ed -him back to the 22; On the
fourth down; Schrenk tried his
first of two field goal attempts
which failed to go far enough.
Late-in the second period, the
Sharks were. threatening on the
Perry 30,'bt-t Ken Whitle was
caught 10 yards deep in his own
backfield trying tb pass and the
scoring threat was ended.
Perry's deepest penetration of
Shark territory came with three
minutes left in the third stanza.
A Shark fumble on the Perry 40
gave the Dogs possession of the
ball. The Shark line held on the,
37 and the kicker made' ready to
punt .. but he didn't. Schrenk
took the snap- from center and
took off, coming all the way back
to the 17_ The Sharks finally
held on the eight yard line and
Schrenk tried his ,second field
goal of the evening which was
good on this attempt, making the
score seven to three.
Perry Adkison, who was play-
ing with, a twisted ankle 'by this
time had to step in at quarter-
back with the Sharks on the Per-
ry 11, after Whittle had the
wind knocked from his sails. Ad-
kison handed off to Shackleford
who rammed to the one foot line
and a first down. On the next
play, Shackleford bulled over for
the Sharks TD and Bass compli-
mented the effort with his sec-
ond extra point of the evening.
With three minutes' left, Steve
Atchison hauled in his pass in-
terception on the Port St. Joe 26.
The Sharks'worked the, ball back
to Perry's 37 where it was lost
on a fumble, ending a scoring
The Sharks had to go without
Phil Early last week who had a
bad ankle. His status for this
week is still in question. Adki-
son will probably be, on the side-

For example, some of Florida's
big cities' and towns have sys-
tems that dump raw sewage into
rivers and streams-which the
state frowns upon-and they,
presumably, top this list. Other
communities, have nothing more
than a' primary system' (settling
ponds and run-off) which effec-
tively treat no more than 35 per-
cent of the sewage.
White City, Oak Grove and

The Motel St. Joe here in Port
St. Joe was sold October 1 by its
former owner M. K. Hurlbut, to
Mr. and Mrs. 'Robert L. Lange.
The Langes have assumed the
operation of the Motel and have
moved to Port St. Joe.
The Lange family consists of
Robert I. Lange and his wife
Dorothy, .their 18-year-old daugh-
ter Leonor and 10-year-old son
Robert L. Lange, Jr.
The family left the island of
Guam in January of this year
and have traveled by car and

for just the right place to set-

In coming off last year's list,
Port St. Joe dropped from num-
ber 26 to 56. Oak Grove and
White/City'were between 10 'and
20 last year, but were dropped
for lack of 'plans. They went to
the bottom of the list.
Nations said, "The fact that
we are ready to go puts us well
ahead of many of those who have
a 'lower number on this list.
When they start dropping out by,
virtue of inot being ready to go,
we'll be standing there ready to
advertise for bids."
Of course the County Commis-
sion is concerned about this
placement in line of the three
s y ste ms for unincorporated
areas. If financing isn't made
available for construction to be-
gin during the coming year, the
County must pay some $45,000
for engineering work on the Oak
