City Penalized by
Its Taxing Ability
Cities and counties of Florida sharing in the 1972
state financial assistance program were mailed their first
monthly checks last Week.
Here in Gulf County, the county is scheduled to re-
ceive $68,034.53 as a guaranteed amount.
Port St. Joe will receive a guaranteed $64,183.21 and
.$23,102.95 in "growth money" for a total of $87,286.16.
Wewahitchka reaps the real bonanza in the state sharing
program in Gulf County. Wewahitchka will receive $23,-
114.04 in guaranteed income and $97,032.39 in "growth
'money" for a total of $120,146.43.
The formula for distribution penalizes Port St. Joe's
receipts, due to its ability to generate its own tax dollars.
The distribution of funds is made on the criteria of pop-
ulation, contributions to the State's sales tax revenues
and local ability to raise revenue based on a one mill per
capital levy: on real and personal property assessments.
Port St. Joe has two industries based within the city limits
as well as several, satellite companies of St.; Joe P.aper

Scouts Make Clean Sweep of Beaches Area
THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Florida THURSDAY; AUGUST 17, 1972
In Port St. Joe
Three Acres A Minute
Commercial forest lands are disappearing at the rate
of three acres per minute due to growth of communities,
land withdrawals for recreation and wildlife and other
causes. Currently, some 248 million acres of forest land
are set aside in wilderness areas, national parks and other
restrictive classifications that exclude wood product man-
These figures illustrate the need for more intensive
management of remaining commercial forst lands as well
as the necessity of halting the alarming trend toward re-
moving even more commercial forest lands from produc-
tion and locking them up for recreation use only. Ironic-
ally, the nation's commercial forests upon which everyone
depends for wood products are disappearing, not because
timber companies are exploiting them, but because of an
almost fanatical drive to "preserve" forests for nonproduc-
tive uses. The belief that this has to be done to protect
these forests from timber companies is, to put it mildly,
As an official of a forestproducts company has ob-
served: 'Forest management recognizes trees as a renew-
able crop, supporting multi-million dollar mills which have
been built on the basis of renewable forests, with planned
harvesting under theguidance of professional foresters.
As a result, these millions are economically dependent upon
good forest practices which will maintain a constant sup-
ply of raw material to them. This is what guarantees the
citizens of this nation perpetual forests .' No one has
a greater stake in maintaining productive forest lands
than the timber industry which needs them for its exist-
ance no one, that is, except the public which must have
wood products in a thousand different forms.
1 The Department of Health, Education and Welfare
according to the Associated Press, is conducting a $23,-
000 study to find out why tots fall off tricycles.
Over the years one has read of hundreds, perhaps
thousands, of boondoggles carried on by various depart-
ments and bureaus of the federal government, some fully
as silly as this. In total they mount up to tens, of millions
of dollars a year. In hundreds of cases the money wasted
on such absurd and frivolous studies and surveys is spent
abroad, thus aggravating our balance of payments plight.
Do some of our bureaucrats lie awake at night, think-
ing of ways to waste the taxpayers' money? And what-
is one to think of the moral standards of the leeches who
initiate such futile projects, and the other parasites, even
if Ph.D's, who take the money for conducting such boon-
doggles? --Houston (Tex). Tribune

We have seen the public
school "administrator attempting
to implement his administration
to perpetuate the goals of public
education in the face of warring
community and political con-
flicts. If the policy of the public
school administrator is deemed
by him so very critical to the
needs of education he may him-
self turn "politician". This be-
comes especially true as politi-
cians seek to become "public
school administrators" it is a
question of survival and a ques-
tion of duty. Although the educa-
tion profession has its-cowards,
the history of public school ad-
ministration has certified its
list of candidates for great Amer-
icans in each decade.
Whether it be the politicians
thinking themselves a public
school administrator or the pub-
lic school' administrator thinking
himself a politician, both may
necessarily come to employ a
political rhetoric. On the one end

tween we have the "progressive"

lines are drawn by the use of
"ultra" and "psuedo". These
terms are used in name-calling
sprees with more emotion than

disagreements in public life do
have a casual relationship with
a rational basis.
Essentially the political spec-
trum in education is divided into
those who wish rapid change and
those who wish evolutionary
change. Each see the other as an
adversary with a powerful fol-
lowing. Ultimately it is not a
difference in philosophy but a
difference in personality. The
radical sees change as a vehicle
by which he can challenge au-
thority. It is the tool by which
he surmount shis father figure
restructured as the establish-
ment by chipping away at the
foundation. The progressive is
not unlike the radical but sees
to his distinct advantage not so
toppling the structure that he
himself becomes part of the
crashing rubble. The conserva-
tive feels a confidence in the au-
thority that flows from what is
presently in existence. Like the
progressive he shuns all rapid
change and for the same reasons,
The reactionary feels even more
threatened than the conserva-
tive. He feels that change has
already undermined the author-

Most of us in Gulf County find
ourselves moving from progres-

Social Security recipients, not

ble to buy food stamps. A notice
being sent nationwide with Au-

"Whether a person is eligible or
not depends on how much his
monthly income is and how
much he has in savings or other
The Division of Family Serv-
ices is strongly advising those
people who feel they are eligi-
ble to get in touch with their
local Division of Family Services
office. Contact should be made
during the second or third week
of the month. Eligibility wil
be determined by local workers.
The Division further suggests
that actual purchases be made
either by mail or after the fourth

The maximum amount of in-

depends on the number of peo-
ple in the household. Monthly
maximum limits are $178.00 for
one person, $233.00 for two per-

Such assets might be stocks,

Has Channel 7 TV ever messed up!
Changing from NBC to ABC was one of the worst
possible moves they could have made. They are prob-
ably losing viewers wholesale now, with the rot ABC
puts on the air. Wednesday night's television was just
a short step less than idiotic. I know, I know. I didn't;
have to watch it. I have Cable TV and could watch Chan-
nel 6, which I plan to do more than ever. But I had to
stay tuned to Channel 7 this week just to see if there by
chance was a good program on. The only thing I saw
all week, which I enjoyed, was the movie of Kung Wu on
They took away my Monday night baseball, IrQnside,
Flip Wilson, Nichols, Saturday afternoon baseball (al-
though I haven't seen that one this year). It will mean
an absence of winter football (except on Channel 6) the
World Series and many other programs I thoroughly en-
joy. The only thing I won't miss is David Brinkley.
I can't really figure Channel 7's reasoning for such
a move. The only thing I can figure is that NBC dropped
them or ABC pays much higher royalties. At any rate,
I hope Channel 7 sees the error of their ways and gets
back into the NBC fold.
Either that, or I hope St. Joseph Tel. and Tel. makes
some improvement at their Cablevisibn installation and
brings in an NBC station. Knowing how much Vice-Pres-
ident Roy Gibson enjoys baseball and football, that just
might be in the planning stages already.
Sergeant Shriver says it's alright that George Mc-
Govern didn't consider him as the first choice for Vice
President. "He wasn't my first choice for the Democra-
tic Presidential candidate, either", the good' Sarge said
. in public. That doesn't sound much like a politician.
It sure doesn't sound much like a running mate. It was
well known that McGovern wasn't Eagleton's first choice
either, but he never said so in public.
Summing up the summer of politics, it looks to us as
if it will succeed in re-electing Richard Nixon as President
of the United States for another four years; Spiro (Who)
Agnew as Vice-President and Tom Eagleton as the "hero
of the year" award.
One of McGovern's youthful supporters remarked on
TV, a week ortwo ago that she was appalled to find out
that McGovern was just a "practical politician" after all,
referring to his expedient dumping of Eagleton.
What do they say about feet of clay?
Big shots from the Department of Transportation
were in town last Thursday inspecting the Highland View
drawbridge at the urging of the Port St. Joe Jaycees.
The big shot who came-Chuck Owens, Bridge Engineer
with the DOT--said most of the problems with the bridge
are in the electrical system and will be repaired. Owens
also set up a six month intensified system of keeping a
log on the bridge to find out just how regular the problems
are so his department will know where to start in looking
for an upgrading of service.

lough, administrator of the pro-
gram for the Division of Mental
Health, it is too early to esti-
mate how much the new local
screening and treatment pro-
gram will reduce state hospital
"Since July 1, there has been
a slight decrease in daily admis-
sions," he said, "But this is not
long enough to give us a good es-
timate since the first two weeks
of July were devoted to the lo-
cal screening activities and pa-
tients were not coming to the
hospitals directly through the
courts as in the past."
Furlough said that the percen-
tage of patients that would even-
tually be admitted to state hos-
pitals would be reduced but that
the increasing state population
would -probably offset this and
the agency expects only a "lev-
e cling off" of admission rates
which have been increasing rap-
idly each year with the influx
of new residents.
Admissions to the four state
hospitals last year totaled 7,581,
separations totaled 8,284 leav-
ing the patient load at 8.170 on
Furlough said the most signi-
ficant feature of the new law
was the provision for patients to
get treatment on a voluntary ba-
sis whereas in the past "judi-
ciary committmet" was the usual
way, requiring that each person
admitted be declared "legally
PATIENTS ADMITTED now
are urged to do so on a volun-
tary basis. Persons who are in
need of help who refuse the vol-
untary status are -entitled to le-
gal counsel before an involun-
tary admission for treatment.
They still retain all civil rights
and must be considered for dis-
charge after six months in a
state hospital. A hearing exam-
iner will conduct inquiry pro-
ceedings on request of the pa-
tient or his legally appointed
guardian after the six month per-
iod of treatment. The patient
will be furnished legal counsel
if he cannot afford such legal
representation. If sufficiently
improved the patient will be dis-
charged or referred to a local
community mental health facil-
ity for further treatment.

Too Late To Classify
By Russell Kay
Jeanne Dixon, the Washington
seeress has just released her
mid-year predictions. I don't find
them very exciting or startling.
Before she began to commercial-
ize on her so-caleld talent she
did pretty well but her predic-
tions during the last couple of
years, as far as I can determine,
haven't been too good.
Looking back through my files
I find most of her predictions
were not much more than an ed-
ucated guess. The average well
read and well informed citizen
could probably do as well and
hit as many nails on the head
in the long run.

vention, she mentioned Kennedy

Teachers, Age 62, May Be Eligible
For Social Security In Summer
'Teachers may be losing valu-
able social security checks," David
Robinson, Social Security Field
Representative for Gulf County,
said this week.
V Many teachers, age 62, fail to
4eltaiFe th'a they can receive a so-
cial security check for summer
months in which they do not teach
or do some other kind of work.
The Social Security law consid-
ers a person retired in any month
in which he earns $140 or less as
an employee, or if self-employed,
in which he does not render sub-
stantial services to his business.
This is true regardless of the fact
that his total annual earnings are
so much that they prevent payment
of benefits in all other months of
Teachers who are age 62 or old-
er should contact their social se-
curity office to determine if it is
to their financial advantage to re-
ceive summer social security
checks. In many cases it is and
these benefits can help replace
earnings during those lean sum-
Florida Power Cancels Plans for
Construction of Nuclear Power Plant
Florida Power Corporation has
cancelled construction of a sec-
ond nuclear power plant at Crys-o
tal River, A. P. Perez, chairman
of the board and chief executive
officer, announced recently.
Plans for the second nuclear
power plant were announced in
The action followed recent
studies by the company's engi-
meers which indicate that Crys-
tal River Unit No. 3, the com-
pany's first nuclear plant, will
not. be ready for operation until
October 1974. Original start-up
for this plant was scheduled for
April 1972. Later the schedule
was adjusted to September 1973,
because of delays outside Florida
Power Corporation's control.
"In view of the delays already
experienced and the need to
have new generating facilities
available in 1978, when the sec-
ond nuclear unit was supposed to
be ready, we cannot jeojardize
our customers' electric supply by
proceeding on our previously an-
nounced course," said Perez.
"The whole history of nuclear
plant construction for the past
few years has been one of intol-.
erable delays and cost increases.
This has forced us to plan for
fossil fulbbd plants to supply a
greater portion of thea electric
needs of ouir customers than we
had previously planned.
"We will continue to closely
Follow developments in the nuc-
lear power field. In fact, we are

not afford to gamble on commit-

lear plant at this time," Perez

RECOGNITION COMES QUICKLY TO DEVOTED WASHINGTON NEWCOMER ...
CHIPLEY-Margaret Zebedee Brock is a citizen who gets in-
volved-in civic projects, community affairs,. government or any-
thing else she considers constructive. .
And she has a lot of energy, knowledge, talent, ability and ex-
perience to draw upon in the interest of the people and institu-
tions of this area. If anybody's 'listening. And if the local public
feels that progress here is not already too fast.
Washington C6unty has been Mrs. Brock's second home for
more than two decades, but she moved here two or three years
ago to make her permanent home.
She is otherwise known as Mrs. Conway C. Brock, wife of a
retired Atlanta, Ga., veterinarian. He is native of Washington
County. Dr. and Mrs. Brock for years have owned a ranch of
nearly 1,000 acres in the western part of this county. That's where
,they have their home.
But they hadn't been there long before Mrs. Brock was before
the county commissioners, putting in a bid for some improved
She had more success in organizing a volunteer Red Cross
group for service at the local hospital.
She attends county board meetings from time to time, and
she's in the court room now and then to see how justice is being
administered. And- she asks questions; penetrating questions-
and she sometimes makes suggestions and otherwise take part
in the public opinion-making process.
Mrs. Brock has an accent sufficiently pronounced to suggest
that she is a native of Virginia. Born Margaret Mae Zebedee in
Petersburg, Va., she attended school there and graduated from
She had made a distinguished record for herself long before
coming "home" to the ranch. She taught school for awhile after
her graduation from Radford, and in 1942-43 she headed the
personalized service department for the Roane-Anderson Co., at
Oak Ridge, Tenn.
With the Red Cross in the European Theatre from 1944
through 1947, she became supervisor of voluntary services and
had charge of leave area clubs in the Bavarian region of Germany.
"I enjoyed that work more than anything," she recalls. "It
was fascinating and the scenery was superb."
But, then, she enjoys much of the work she has undertaken.
She once took time off from her work to earn a law degree, except
for three more months of study. She still feels that the course
was just interrupted, not halted completely.
And she has been a successful businesswoman-as a real
estate broker, no less, one with a six-agent staff.
In the meantime, she has been recognized with listings in
Marquis' "World Who's Who in Finance and Industry" and "Who's
Who of American Women with World Notables," both published
in the United States. She is also listed in "The Dictionary of In-
ternational Biography," a who's who-type book- issued periodically
Few women hereabouts have won such recognition. Few men,
either for that matter.
Upon returning from Europe in 1948, she bought and began
operating an apartment motel in Daytona Beach. That's where she
met Dr. Brock. They married in 1950 and moved to East Point, a
suburb of Atlanta, where she founded and operated Zebedee Real-
ty, Inc., and he owned and operated East Point Animal Hospital.
It was here that Mrs. Brock was named' "Mrs. East Point," a
title for woman of the year. She was a member of both the
Woman's Club and the Business and Professional Women's Club.
She was a director of a regional clothing bank, a volunteer direc-
tor of Girl Scouts and was chairman of the Code and Ordinance
Committee of the City of East Point.
Mrs. Brock's first real estate venture was in Florida, where (in
addition to the apartment motel) she built and leased post offices
at Daytona Beach, Holly Hill and other nearby communities and
bought the old Jay Gould mansion in nearby Ormond Beach.
She acknowledges having come a long way since finding her-
self an orphan at age 10, the eldest of three children. Her brother
was killed in World War II, and her sister died at age 29. The
court appointed an attorney, whose wife was a supervisor of
elementary education, as her legal guardian.
"Having the guidance of this fine couple was a stroke of great
good luck," she recalls.
She's tempted from time to time to return to law school to
complete requirements for that degree.
Although no women's liberation militant, she believes
strongly that women should take a more active part in politics.
"I think we'd have better government if women, played a
more active role in politics," she said. But she denied having any
personal political aspirations here... "I have nothing in mind at
the moment," she laughed. "But, III keep my options open ."
When not busy with her real estate interests in Atlanta or
Daytona Beach, Mrs. Brock sometimes knits. But she prefers
something a little more challenging.
She's often at the side of her husband, who is chairman of the
Washington County Development Authority. They have spent
many hours in the performance of the duties of that post. Both Dr.
and Mrs. Brock say they see a great potential for future develop-
ment here, and she's determined to play some role in shaping its
Her's won't be a negative role-not unless it is completely
out of character. She is a positive person, one that's rarin' to get
on with making the world hereabouts a better place .

which will be made a minimum of
120 days, instead of the present
30 days after a negative herd test,
and requirement, of 'two negative
herd tests, .for release of quaran-
tine of infected herds.
The objection of. cattlemen to
the changes was to the extension
of the quarantine period, which
they said will interfere with calf
sales. The regulations were adopt-
ed, however, under threat of re-
moval of modified-certified status
of Florida unless they were adopt-
ed by September 1.
'Under the changed regulations,
infected herds will be tested at
30-day--intervals until negative,.
with an additional test 90 days af-
ter the first negative test.
Dr. Campbell reported 16 Florida
counties are qualified for brucello-
body contact during competition.
No special equipment is needed
and participation does not im-
