Vandals Strike High School


A portion of Port St. Joe High School was
severely damaged by. vandals over the
Thanksgiving holidays. Destructive vandals
gained entrance to the school some time
Thursday afternoon or Thursday night and
proceeded to wreck havoc in the science,
biology, auto repair, library and part of the
athletic departments.
Science Department head, Charles Os-
borne, said he was in the science department
around noon on Thursday to feed fish in an
aquarium and the visitors hadn't arrived at
that time..
The vandals caused an estimated $5,000
damages in destroyed property,.broken glass,
and articles stolen from the science lab and
automotive department. Osborne said an
expensive sensitive set of scales was taken
frmni'the science lab and Saimmny Pakri'&,
automotive instructor, said a number of tools
were taken from his department. Parker said
he still doesn't have a full inventory of what
was taken.
The thieves took the acetylene cutting
torch from the automotive department and
used it to cut locks off doors to gain entrance
to storage rooms and locked rooms which
contained valuable equipment.
After their break-in of the several rooms,


the vandals seemed to take some of the
hammers from the automotive department
and go on a rampage. They broke large, thick
glass doors in the library, smashed in the face
of a television set, (a dangerous maneuver
since television tubes explode if they are
broken. The picture tube was not broken in
this case).. A microfilm reader was also
destroyed, huge windows, made of double
strength glass in the library smashed and
windows in an entire wing of the building
smashed. Osborne could have saved himself
the trouble of coming in to feed the fish, since
the huge aquarium holding them was also
smashed and the fish allowed to die in the
floor.
All fire extinguishers were torn from the
walls and emptied in the floor throughout the
damaged wing. A twinge of conscience
'seemed to stop the destructive visitors from
spraying the extinguishers in rooms which
had carpet on the floor.
Principal Ken Herring said he intends to
press charges against those who caused the
damage. "We're going to require some
repayment for the damages", he said.
The Gulf County Sheriff's Department
and the Port St. Joe Police Department are
both working on the case and have come up
with some leads in the matter, but no arrests

The City Commission took

Ball Set

Saturday

The annual Charity Ball
sponsored by the Rotary
Club will be held this
Saturday. Dec. 6, in the
Centennial Building. You
still have time to get your
reservations in for tables
to Reservations Chair-
man Ted Cannon. He said
anyone who -wishes to re-
serve a table may call
him at the Florida First
National Bank.
The program will begin
at 9:00 P.M. and continue
until 1:00 A.M. Music will
be provided by the Bay
High School Dance Band.
The Dance Band was
called on to provide music
for the Golden Anniver-
sary Ball back in the
month of June, and
proved to be a hit with
those attending the ball.
Tickets for the Charity
Ball are currently on sale
by all members of the
Rotary Club at $10.00 per
couple.
Chauncey Costin, pro-
ject chairman for the Ball
said all proceeds will be
used in Gulf County, by
the Rotary Club, to fi-
nance charitable projects
and contributions.


streets were adopted and
signs ordered to erect on each
street, giving its speed limit. A
new system was also estab-
lished to determine delinquent
water fee payments..
At a recent meeting, the
discrepancy of speed limits on
the several streets in the city
was discussed and assistant
police chief Roy Roberson was


instructed to come up with a
plan for the entire city. His
plan was presented and
adopted as revised Tuesday
night.
The Commission set 45 mile
per hour speed limits on
Highway 98 south of the
Methodist Church and north of
the container division en-

Get Bicenten nial Money v

The City of Port St. Joe was presented a check for $800.00
this week by the Florida Bicentennial Commissiron for use in
developing the Old St. Joseph Cemetery. The presentation
was made to City Auditor and Clerk Charles Bro/'k by R. H.
Elizey, Gulf County Bicentennial Action Committee Chair-
man. The money will be matched by the City of Port St. Joe.


Woodward Avenue. A 35 mile
per hour limit was set on Fifth
Street and Monument Avenue.
Thirty mile limits were
applied to First Street, Balt-
zell, Garrison, Marvin, Wood-
ward, and Long Avenues, 16th
Street, 20th Street east of
Monument Avenue, Allen Me-
morial Way, Gautier Lane and
Avenue A, east of North
Garrison Avenue.
All other streets in the city
will have a 25 mile per hour
limit.
The speed limits will go into
effect as soon as the signs are
erected.
DELINQUENT BILLS
For years, the city has
charge $1.00 for a late water
bill payment and another $1.00
to turn water on which has
been cut off for non-payment.
This has resulted in a chronic
stack of unpaid bills late in
each month, with many wait-
ing until the man comes to cut
off the water to pay their
water bill. Of course, this
practice is costing the water
department a lot of money to
keep men running back and
forth collecting delinquent
bills through a threat to shut
off water.
Effective next month, the
city will charge $1.00 to those
who do not pay by the 15th of
the month. Water will be cut
off if the bill is not paid by the
20th and a $5.00 fee will be
charged to cut the water back
on.
Commissioner James B.
Roberts, commissioner in
charge of the water depart-
ment presented the Commis-
sion with a list of 150 delin-
quent bills at the meeting
Tuesday night and recom-
mended the change in hand-

shield causing the death of C. W. Roberts. Star Photo


Charles W. (C. W.) Roberts,
Jr., owner of C & G Construc-
tion Company here in Port St.
Joe was killed Wednesday
night of last week in a freak
accident near Scotts Ferry in
Calhoun County.
According to Florida High-
way Patrol officer Ken Mur-
phy, Roberts' accident hap-
pened'about 1.8 miles south of
Scotts Ferry on Highway 71,
Murphy said Roberts was
travelling toward Blountstown
and was meeting a pick-up
truck, driven by Stanley D.
Sanders of Jones Homestead,
towing a utility trailer. The
hitch on the trailer broke,
sending the trailer careening
up the highway out of control.
Murphy said the trailer travel-
led 402 feet before it hit
Roberts' pick-up truck. Mur-
phy said he surmised Roberts
saw the trailer coming, even
though it was dark, since the
point of impact was off the
highway.
Trooper Murphy said the
trailer struck Roberts' truck
on the left front fender and the
top broke loose and came
through the windshield of
Roberts' vehicle striking him
in the face.
He was taken to Calhoun
General Hospital and trans-
ferred to Tallahassee Me-
morial where he was pro-


nounced dead on arrival.
Murphy said no charges
were filed in the accident.
Trooper Murphy was assist-
ed in his investigation by
Calhoun County Sheriff W. C.
Reeder.
Mr. Roberts was a native of
Hosford and a veteran of
World War II. He was .a
member of the First United
Methodist Church, member of
the Dixie Lodge No. 109 Fand
AM, charter member of Hadji
Shrine Club, member of the
Port St. Joe Lions Club,
Quarterback Club and was oft
the Board of Directors of St.

:EDITORIALS.


For the few of us who saw the
damage inflicted on the high school
over the Thanksgiving holidays by
vandals, we found it hard to figure
why people could do such a thing.
Those who performed the deed
will probably just snigger at what
we're going to say about their
activity and burble out a "Boy, we
put one over on them, didn't we?"
Looking at the broken glass, the
damaged equipment, the soiled
.o"flors and senseless sabotage, we
* had to come to but one conclusion:
Y;tose who did the job couldn't be
,very civilized. If they were civilized
:at all, they couldn't take a hammer
-.and march down the hall, whacking
:'i into every window they passed.
,'hey couldn't have wantonly broken
'an aquarium and allowed the fish to
just slosh out into the floor and die.
.They couldn't have put a hammer
'-through an expensive micro-film
Spreading device without a twinge of
c: onscience for destroying what tax
Spayers had paid through the nose for

:-liave what they needed to get all the
learning advantages possible.


Santa Claus is coming to town
Saturday and a big parade will usher
him into the city for his annual visit
with the kids.
Port St. Joe merchants are
Footing the considerable bill which
goes into the Christmas parade each
year and are glad for the opportun-
ity to do so.
Granted, the parade is a promo-
tional activity. It is designed to
.:encourage the adults to do their
Christmas shopping here in Port St.
Joe, just as the merchants of other
communities are urging for their
particular location.
We think it is our duty and
.: obligation as citizens of Port St. Joe
:-to do our purchasing here at home
-.w.here we can possibly do so. Not
- only does it favor us as individuals,
: it'also favors the merchant.
With the price of automobiles
:-ihd gasoline these days, it would
:have to result in a pretty healthy
:discount to travel to another city to
shop. The time saved could be used
: in going hunting, fishing or working
,.around the house.

Principal Ken Herring ordered
the Gulf County Sheriff's Depart-
ment and the Port St. Joe Police
Department to use every avenue
available to catch whoever did the
disgusting damage. Herring said,
"We want them caught, because
when they are caught, we are going
to use every tool at our command to
see that they are punished for the
damage and that they re-imburse
the school for the expense involved."
We salute Herring for this
attitude. We have had too much
petty mischief in our town already,
even though we have not had much
as compared to other towns. Any at
all is too much. One of the basics
which people should learn is respect
for the property of others. There
should be no need to lock .school.
houses, churc6esi, or even hdmes, to-
keep vandals out.
We feel that if an example is
made of those who caused the
damage to the high school, maybe
we will once again revert to a
community where we don't have to
keep everything Under lock and key.
That's the civilized way to live.


and every day they are open to
support local projects. They get the
first calls on sponsoring civic activi-
ties, church projects, school groups.
When you add up all the fish fries,
contests, car washes, programs,
tickets, charities, sporting events,
league events, and on and on, it
amounts to a contribution from
some merchant or merchants every
day that rolls around.
We expect the merchant to
contribute and the merchant tries
to do so whenever he can. It isn't too
much for him to expect to get a
chance at your dollar when you
decide to spend it.
Port St. Joe merchants aren't
unreasonable, in our opinion. Most
of them-will take a shot at getting
your business; then if you get a
better deal somewhere else, they are
usually glad for you.
Let's give our merchants a
Christmas present this year, and
give them a shot at our money. If
they can't meet the competition,
they will at least feel they have not
been ignored in all but the chance to
donate to a worthy cause.

ETAOIN SHRDLU

By WESLEY R. RAMSEY


The Christmas parade coming up this
Saturday is a reminder that it is getting
dangerously close to Christmas for those of us
who have not even.started to do their Christmas
shopping.
Already the kids are beginning to ask me
what I want for Christmas. I don't really want
anything except a day of peace and quiet and
.have a chance to get some good visiting done. I
could use some shirts, underwear, socks you
know, the usual stuff a man could always use but
doesn't particularly need at the present time.
While I can't think of a thing I need for
Christmas, I have come up with one present I
don't want.
I don't want a pet rock.
I know; pet rocks are the rage these days. I
saw on TV the other night where the originator of
the pet rock is packing and shipping 50,000 of
them a day. I still don't want one. I don't know
when I would find the time to feed it.

Wash Day Brought


A Special Routine


By CHARLIE WEBB


the family. The noon meal was
seldom served, and the men
folks after filling the tubs-with
water and starting a fire
around the wash pot, would
leave for grinding corn at the
grist mill, or a trip to the com-
missary store to hear a little
news of one kind or another
from some travelling drum-


"Fone" or "Phone",


Take Your "Pik"

In Port St. Joe, if your telephone is out of order and you
would like to report it, you might look in your new
bicentennial telephone book under "S" for St. Joseph
Telephone Company. Then again, you might look under "F"
for "Fone Company".
It's there. New directories came out last week in Port St.
Joe. And in big bold print, right between C. H. Floyd and E.
T. Ford, is listed the "Fone Company".
"You'd be surprised how many letters I receive from
customers who spell it with an "F", said Higdon Swatts. As
commercial manager of the St. Joseph Telephone Co., he
claimed total responsibility fnr the listing.
"It makes the telephone company look kind of stupid. But
not if you know the intent. We're not worried about that.
We're trying to help the customer", Swatts said.
He said the company numbers were also listed under
"ph" and "S".
But "a lot of people spell phone f-o-n-e. They don't know
any different. We're trying to help them out".
The telephone company in Quincy also lists its numbers
under "F", Swatts said.
This item was picked up by the Associated Press before
most people in the phone company's service area even knew
of the unique entry. The AP failed to catch the error in the
back of the book where the names of government officials and
their addresses are listed. The new directory still lists
Edward Gurney as United States Senator, when, in reality, it
is Richard (Dick) Stone who now serves the people in this
capacity.


mer, wearing patent leather
shoes and a gold watch fob
dangling from the vest under
his coat.
The ladies were left alone to
do the washing, but they
seemed to enjoy being alone
for the day and doing the thing
that ladies do so well. That is
making all things beautiful
through the simplicity of
cleanliness.
After boiling the clothes in
the wash pot with home-made
lye soap, the women would
remove the clothes with a
wash pot poke, usually made
from a broom handle. Gar-
ments that needed a little
extra going over were placed
upon a wooden block and hit
time after time with a flat-
shaped battling stick. The bat-
tling stick and stick operation
was tough on the buttons and
buckles, but sure would re-
move stubborn spots and
stains.
The clothes were then
placed in to a tub and rubbed
on a home-made rub board,
then rinsed through several
tubs of soft well-water. The
last rinse gave a sparkle to
white clothes as it contained a
blueing, purchased in powder
form for a nickle in a small
wood container. The clothes
when dry from the gentle
breezes and pure sunshine of
the clothes line were beautiful-
clean and sweet smelling for
the enjoyment of the whole
family through the love of
cleanliness by the ladies.
Cleanliness could be one of
humanity's great attributes.
Without : cleafiliness there
seems to be little beauty, and
without beauty, we sometimes
die too young.


School Damage Was


Senseless Act


It's even kind of difficult to tell what kind of
pick-up truck Harry Lee drives. It has a Ford
hood, apple crate carrying bed, non-descript
cab, army surplus paint job, dune buggy wheels,
re-built Yamaha motorcycle motor and a riding
lawn mower transmission. Harry Lee uses the
"truck" to haul his laundry to the laundromat to
do his washing. Other than that, I don't think the
truck has a useful purpose.
If you had to put a grade on Harry Lee's
truck you would have to come up with some
special grading system. The nearest you cold
come to grading his truck is to label it a
"Mongrel".


on Israeli charges that he wants to destroy
Israel. Arafat's winning answer was: "They are
wrong. We do not want to destroy any people. It
is precisely because we have been advocating
co-existence that we have shed so much blood."
First runnerup award went to the .Illinois
Board of Higher Education. I suspect a little
collusion in this award, since it came from
English teachers.
The Education Board won for its approval of
a $168,000 project with this statement: "The
purpose of this project is to develop the
capability for institutions of higher learning and
community agencies and organizations to co-
alesce for the development of community
services and create a model for the coordination
of such services that would maximize the
available resources from a number of institu-
tions and provide communication and priority
needs and the response of the educational needs
of a given community."
I don't know.., that one sort of sounds like a
winner to me.

A youth director of the Lakewood Baptist.
Church near Tallahassee made the news last
week for declaring that modern music "appeals
to the flesh". He had the opinion that the modern
noise' which carries the label of music is
appealing to the baser instincts of young people
and is doing them nothing but harm.
The youth director has even managed to get
some of the young people in his church to burn
some of the records which he has attacked.
I have to admit the youth director might .
have something here. The modern music (using
the word "music" loosely in this instance) could
very well appeal to the flesh. I know it makes
mine crawl when I hear it.

Good news for us peanut lovers.
I see where the peanut supply is going to
have a surplus this year. This means the price
will come down and the availability will be all
that we could desire.
The only thing is, it had to happen when I
have cut down on my intake in order to loose a
few pounds. I figure if I cut down on things like
brussels sprouts, English peas, cornmeal mush
and the like, I can ingest a few peanuts along and
help out in this surplus thing. Everyone should do
their part in these emergencies.

A few weeks ago we printed a description of
the several grades of pick-up trucks in which
sportsmen ply their trade in these days of getting
back to nature and meeting the American need
for roughing it in the wilds.
Friday night at the football game, Harry Lee
Smith cornered me and said he enjoyed those
several descriptions and that they had been the
topic of much conversation among the pick-up
truck afficiandos in the Port St. Joe area.
Harry Lee would be interested in something
like that since he drives a pick-up truck at
least I guess it's a pick-up truck: it's kind of hard 4
to tell just what his vehicle is.
A close re-examination of the several grades
of trucks listed in the article fails to turn up a
grade for Harry Lee's pick-up. He doesn't have a
whip antenna, a CB radio, an extra gas tank, no
dog box or toot box, no camper shell or front

Courthouse Repair Bids Cause Confusion






Country Club Asks for Tax Immunity


Trying to award bids took up
most of the time of the County
Commission meeting last
Tuesday night, caused by
confusion as to what service
would be performed under the
bids and what the final cdst
would be. There also seemed
to be confusion on the part of
the bidders as to just what the
County wanted of them.
The biggest confusion, since


the meeting, however, seems
to be confusion as to just what
action the Commission took on
a resolution presented them
by the St. Joseph Bay Country
Club president, E. F. Gunn.
Gunn requested that
'the Commission grant im-
munity from ad valorem taxes
under a Florida law which
allows such action for non
profit organizations which use


real property for outdoor rec-
reation which is open to the
general public. Charles W.
Brick, present and represent-
ing the Country Club said the
organization meets the criter-
ia. "Anyone who wants can
join the club and use its
facilities", Brock said. The
resolution asked for 10 years
tax free status as made avail-
able under the law.


Commissioner T. D. Whit-
field made the motion, to
accept the resolution and the
motion was adopted with Com-
missioners Eldridge" Money
and Everette Owens, Jr.. vot-
ing nay.
It seemed to be the concen-
sus of those at the meeting, the
Board had granted the tax
immunity. The Commission
members have now said this


wasn't their intent. Their sole
intent was to accept the
resolution for study, after
which they would have to
draw their own resolution
granting the immunity if they
decided to do so.
BID CONFUSION
Confusion reigned supreme
in the opening of two bids
which would initiate repairs to
the old Courthouse in Wewa-


hitchka and the Co9rthouse
here in Port St. Joe.
The Board received bids for
replacing the roof on the old.
Courthouse in Wewahitchka.
The only bidder was, Griffin
Construction of Blountstown
who entered a bid of $11,100 for
hot application, or $12,150 for
cold application..
C. E. Daniell' asked what
kind of drainage of the roof


was required in the bid. There
was none. Daniell said, "You
will be throwing away money
to put a roof on that building
without making some provi-
sion for proper drainage. Wa-
ter can't get off the roof until it
gets nearly waist deep and
this is what is causing all the
roof problems."
A contractor in the audi-
ence, present for another bid
said, "That's an easy problem
to solve. You just have to drill
holes periodically in the par-
rapet around the top of the
building at roof level and put
in down spouts."
The Board decided to go
back to their architect for his
advice.
A bid was entered to remove
the decorative panels from the
second story of the Courthouse
here in Port St. Joe and
waterproof the walls behind it
to prevent water seepage into
the building.
Again. Griffin was the only
bidder with a bid of $29,975 as
a base bid to do this project
and replace the roof and $36.20
for each panel he had to


remove and replace in the
waterproofing project. The
Board had no idea how many
panels were involved. This bid.
too was sent back to the
Architect for clarification. :.
Kolmetz Construction of
Panama City was the low
bidder for construction of axn
ambulance center here in Port
St. Joe. His bid for $54,330 was
termed as being too high by
the Commission which was
thinking in the range of $40,0-
000. The Board decided to holW
'the bid for 30 days and try td
negotiate with Kolmetz..
THE BOARD ALSO: -
-Received no bids on a
surplus boat offered for sale
by the Sheriff's Department.
-Awarded a bid to Gulf
Tractor Company of Wewa-
hitchka for $2,040.20 to supply
the County with certain trac-
tor parts.
-Agreed to furnish an ac-
cess road to property owned
by Mrs. Jean Arnold in the
Overstreet area.
, -Endorsed MK Ranch's
drainage operation in the
Saul's Creek area.

It looked like enough mullet,
to feed the hungry people
of the whole world when
Raffield's Fisheries began un-
loading two boats, Monday
night, after striking in the
afternoon in a large run of red


roe mullet.
The boats unloaded half the
night Monday, packing and
icing down over 65,000 pounds
of the fall delicacy, prized
because of the unique taste of
the fish at this time of the year


and to recover the red roe,
which is also considered as a
delicacy.
The local fisheries had a
crew of about 50 people work-
ing like beavers Monday night

sing headquarters on the bank
of the Gulf County Canal at
Highland View. The fish were
taken from the boats by a huge
vacuum and wench basket to
the dockside where they were
dumped in a huge washing vat
filled with ice and water. The
fish .then went into the proces-
,-sing.buildiig by, conveyor belt
,where, the: red, and -white rod
fish were separated and pack-
ed for shipment and freeze
storage.
Gene Raffield, manager of
the operation said the firm has
caught, processed and shipped
out over 200,000 pounds of
mullet within the past six days
and were expecting even more
over the next few weeks.
"This catch we're bringing
in now will go to Taiwan",
Raffield said. "where the
people have come to like our
Florida mullet and its red
roe". Raffield said that in this
area, the ratio of fish caught
usually runs about 35 percent
red roe and the' remainder
white roe. "This catch is
turning out to be about 50-50",
he said.
Handling a catch of fish this
size would have been next to
impossible in years past. "We
just didn't have the facilities",
Raffield said. "and if we
didn't have the machinery
today we would be.in trouble
because the labor is just not
there".
Monday's catch was being
handled mostly by machinery.
Graders stood at the conveyor
belt and separated the red
from t-he white roe. Then the
conveyors carried the separ-
ated fish to baskets and huge
boxes. The red roe went into
the baskets and was trans-
ported by a fork lift to a
packing station where the fish
was put in 25 pound boxes.
lined with plastic. The boxes
were than banded and put in
the freezer. The white roe
went into a container which
held 4.000 pounds and were
packed in ice and loaded on a
truck for shipment that night.
In about four to five hours.
the 65.000 pounds of fish was
unloaded. graded. iced down.

In colder companies by strong winds as
e, fertilize fronts move through. These
standard strong winds may cause
scorch and browning of the
leaves at the tip and along the
margin of the leaf due to rapid
loss of water from these areas
of the leaf. Watering of the soil
may reduce leaf scorch by
providing water for absorp-
tion by the roots to replace
water lost from leaves by
transpiration.
Avoid late fall pruning. Of-
I ten new growth is induced by
pruning and it is very suscep-
tible to freeze damage. Prune
plants after cold weather has
arrived and plans are dor-
mant.
Give physical protection by
covering the upper parts of the
plants- and the root system
area on the ground with
plastic or other materials. Use
stakes or make a frame
around the shrub or tree to
prevent the plastic from
touching the foliage. Proper
use of covers for plants usu-
ally reduce cold injury by re-
ducing heat loss from the
O plant by radiation and con-
serves ground heat provided
the cover extends to the
ground at the circumference
of the plant to permit the
ground heat to warm the


- o


plant. In case of a severe
freeze, place an electric light
bulb inside the plastic cover-
ing. This will provide neces-
sary heat to keep a plant from
freezing. Be sure to remove all
coverings immediately after
the danger of a freeze has
passed.
Certain cold tender and fast-
growing species of plants may
be partially root pruned in
early fall to reduce vigorous
growth and increase the
maturity of the plant as pro-
tection against cold weather.
Root pruning. such plants in 4
early fall reduces the amount
of water and nutrients availa-
ble and as a consequence,
growth is reduced or almost
stopped. When growth is re-
duced, the plant becomes
"hardened" and is not so
prone to cold damage.
A mulch around ornamental
plants usually increases the
amount of cold damage to the
tops of the plants through in-
sulating the tops from the
ground heat. Cold injury to j
mulched plants can usually be
reduced by pulling the mulch
back during the winter to
permit the ground heat to
warm the plant.
*If plants have been dam-
aged by frost or freeze do not
be in a hurry to prune them.
Premature pruning may
stimulate new tender growth
that will be nipped by later
cold. You may also remove
live wood with an early prun-
ing. Wait and prune in early
spring as growth begins. At
this time, you can better as-
certain the extent of cold
damage.

?veri if your family' isn't "keen on greens." you are sure to
score if you offer them a slice of this tasty quick bread. The key
to the success of Zucchini-Okra Loaf is the artful combination
of several vegetables.
Subtly seasoned and cleverly prepared, squash, okra and tomato
juice make a super loaf of bread. All the ingredients are incor-
porated by the muffin method-a procedure in which liquid in-
gredients are added all at once to the dry.
Ease of preparation adds points to the winning score, too. The
enriched self-rising flour has the correct amounts of leavening and
salt already added. The family also wins nutritionally, because
enriched means the B-vitamins-niacin, thiamine and riboflavin-
plus the minerals, iron and calcium, have been added to the flour.

ACCEPT PLANS
The Commission agreed to
proceed with rehabilitation of
the old Washington School
site Tuesday night, following
the plans as drawn up by Jim
Sayes and Richard Barrett of
the State Department of Com-
munity Affairs. Winston We-
dle, an architect with the
department was present for
the Tuesday meeting and
agreed to prepare specifica-
tions for bid letting and have
the specifications ready with-
in the next few weeks.
The first project will be to
rehabilitate the old gymna-
sium with a new roof, win-
dows, doors, etc., then to
proceed with repainting, a
new floor, rest rooms, game
rooms and other rehabilitative
work. The City has $50,000 in
government block grant
money to put into the gymna-


sium building.
An additional $30,000 will be
spent in renovating other
existing buildings into a day
care center, patio area, bar-
becue, playground areas and
equipment.
The money the city has
available this year will not
develop all of the plans, but
another grant has been ap-
plied for in next year's fiscal
budget for another block grant
to complete the project.
OTHER BUSINESS
In other business, the Com-
mission:
-Was told by Clerk Charles
Brock the city could not
expect as much state revenue
funds as were budgeted. Since
budget time, the funds have
been cut to $116,200.. Notifica-
tion this week from the state
was that this fund would run
nearer $111,700. The City had
budgeted about $119,000 from
this source of revenue.
-Agreed to allow free park-
ing this weekend, Thursday
through Saturday and also
allow free parking from De-


system. This has not been the
case in past attempts.when
only loan money was avail-
able. The Oak Grove area
didn't have enough potential
customers to support a loan.
This time the cost will be cut
further by hooking up to the
Port St. Joe systems and
eliminates the need for wells,
storage tanks, etc. The Board
already has plans on hand for
the system, paid for last year.
.URGES PLANNING
Bates also told the Board
that they need to establish a
local planning agency and get
started on a comprehensive
land use program.


past Tuesday night, the
County Commission took an-
other hesitant step toward
trying to secure water and
sewer services for Oak Grove
residents.
This time, the Board seems
to have an ally in the attempt
- in the person of the Northwest
Florida Planning and Advi-
sory Council' Bob Bates, a
representative of the organi-
zation was present and told
the Board there may be some
grant money available for the

member 15 through 24.
-Received a report from
contractors that the new forc-
ed main sewer line was par-
tially in operation, from 16th
Street to Avenue A.
-Agreed to advertise for a
one foot variance in the build-
ing ordinance for Raymond
Lawrence.
-Received notification
from the Department of Com-
munity Affairs that $21,996
had been approved for the city
to repair damage from Hur-
ricane Eloise. Most of the
money will be spent to re-build
the city pier.


The law now requires a
county or community to have
a comprehensive plan by July
1, 1979, or the state can do the
planning as it wishes.
Attorney Rish intervened to
point out that the law only
requires a planning board be
established by December 15 of
this year and they need not do
anything until the 1979 date.
"The law may very well be
changed by that time", Rish"
explained.
The Board voted to adopt
the necessary resolution to
comply with the minimum
allowed by the law at the
present time

- Ed Sharp, manager of the

The science fair project is
held for high school students,
with winners in the area fair
competing at the state level
for the opportunity of going to
the national competition.
Sharp said about 300 stu-
dents participate from the 40
schools in this area each year.
"They win a free trip to the
state competition as well as a
trophy and other valuable
prizes", he said.
The science fair district is
composed of schools in Gulf,
Calhoun, Jackson, Washing-
ton, Holmes and Bay counties.
The club elected their presi-
dent, Bob Simon, to represent
the Port St. Joe club on the
board of directors.
Sharp said Northwest Flor-
ida had five of the 11 top

Saucy Cranberry Ring
m r -11- Z ai


What makes a cake special? It can be the ingredients, the
,pan it bakes in, the occasion, or even the frosting or sauce-ing
as a finishing touch. Saucy Cranberry Ring has a bounty of
easy-do touches to make it a no-fuss star of get-togethers, any
time, holiday or not.
It begins with the convenience of enriched self-rising flour.
Leavening and salt have already been added in just-right pro-
portions. Bright jewels of cranberries and molasses are extra
ingredients that give delightful aroma and flavor. A ring mold
shapes the batter to a crown. Fragrant, rich butter sauce tops
off this plain cake all dressed up for the party!
The basis of any cake plain or fancy is enriched flour,
providing vital nutrients for good health, every day and holi-
days. The B-vitamins thiamine, niacin and riboflavin, plus
the minerals, iron and calcium, are added to every bag of en-
riched self-rising flour.

Stop Alachua Santii Fe, 20-8 In First Round


Sharks Advance In State Play-offs


The Port St. Joe Sharks did
what they have done all
season long-run hard and
play stout defense-to defeat
Alachua Santa Fe last Friday
night. The 20-8 victory moved
the Sharks up a notch in the
state championship play-offs,
giving them the championship
in Region Two, Class 2A.
Robert Farmer put the
Sharks on the scoreboard
,#first, with a five yard run in


the second period. Farmer's
touchdown was the only score
in the first half, as the Shark
kick failed.

While the first half was a
see-saw battle between two
stout defensive teams, the
second half was anything but.
The second half started with a
bang and continued to spark
fireworks which even erupted
in a huddle by both teams in
the middle of the playing field


which had to be pried apart by
the referees and coaching
staffs of both teams.
93 YARD RUN
Ronald Daniels opened up
the second half by taking the
Red Raider kick-off on the
Shark seven yard line and
scooting up the side-line for a
93 yard scoring jaunt which
saw him fake the safety
defense of Santa- Fe to break
loose for the score.
Again the try for extra point


failed as the Sharks attempted
-a pass for two points.,
The Sharks last score came
with 1:46 left on the clock in
the third period when Farmer
again bulled over from the two
yard line.
The Red Raiders put their
only score on the board in the
final period with four minutes
left in the game when Buddy
Bernardo handed off to Wil-
liam Stroud who ran across
from the three. The Red


Raiders went for the two point
conversion and made it on an
end run by Freeney.

MISSED OPPORTUNITIES
The Red Raiders and Sharks
both had opportunities to
score in the first period, but
fumbles stopped both at-
tempts.
The Sharks took a punt from
the Raiders on their own 16
yard line and started to move
when suddenly the ball squirt-
ed loose from Robert Farmer


and the Raiders had it on the
Shark 31. Ken Johnson then
ripped off an 18 yard gallop for
the Raiders and fumbled on
the Shark six yard line with
the Sharks getting the ball
back.
Then, in 17 plays the Sharks
found themselves on thi Rai-
der nine yard line where the
Sharks again lost the ball on a
fumbl heat the hand-off. The
Shark drive featured a 24 yard

-Basketball Season off to Sputtering Start


Football season is still under
way here in Port St. Joe, even
;'though it is time to begin the
basketball season tomorrow
night. The problem is that
some of the basketball team is
still involved in the football
play-offs.


Basketball coach William
Lane said the cage season will
begin this week, with the
school fielding a team of seven
men until those playing foot-
ball can get free from that
competition.
The Sharks first game of the


season has been scheduled for
Friday night at Carter-Par-
ramore. With the play-off
game in football scheduled for
Friday in Chipley, the basket-
ball game has been shuffled
around a bit. Lane said the
first game of the season will


be played here Saturday
night, against Carter-Parra-
more with the JV..game get-
ting underway at 7:00 p.m.,

Coach Lane's charges will
have only one veteran on the
squad until the football seasoni


is over. Johnny Jenkins will be
returning and will be in action
Friday. With Johnny will be
Terry Daniels, Aaron Ward,
Kim Davis, Wayne Thomas,
Lorenzo Daniels and Terry
Larry.
"After the football season is
over we will add veteran
Ronald Daniels, Preston Gant
and Calvin Watson to our
squad", Lane said.
Though the Shark schedule
starts Saturday night here in
Port St. Joe, the real home
game season doesn't get under
way until after the Christmas
holidays.


Before the holiday break.
the Sharks will meet Carter-
Parramore here Saturday,
travel to Rutherford Aoh De-
cember 8, to Blountstown on
December 12, to Bay High on
December 16 and to Bristol on
December 18.
Following the holiday
break, the Sharks will open at
home against Blountstown on
January 6.
Last year the Sharks had a
winning season and were run-
ners-up in the District play-
offs.
Lane's assistant is Mike
Herring.


H&R Block to


Open Office Here


Gerald B. Jacobsen, Region-
al Director for H&R Block,
America's largest income tax
service, announced this week
that his company plans to
open an office in Port St. Joe
for the 1975 tax season through
an exclusive "Satellite" fran-
chise program. Jacobsen
stated that H & R Block is now
looking for a person interested
in a career opportunity in the
income tax preparation field.
"We are not looking for a 'tax
expert' ", Jacobsen went on to
explain, "but a person who
has the ability to learn taxes
and above all, a person who
has a desire to help his fellow
- man. That," said Jacobsen,
"is what this business is all
about. This philosophy, I feel,
is the main reason behind the
phenomenal success of H & R
f Block."
Jacobsen explained that the

S LI.. Mm-

S ** ^


exclusive Satellite Franchise
program was developed to
make qualified tax prepara-
tion available to every com-
munity. "Every person needs
competent help today in the
preparation of his tax return,"
Jacobsen stated. "A taxpayer
just cannot afford to be a
once-a-year- expert any
more."
Jacobsen also stated; "The
goal of H & R Block is f- pro-
vide the taxpayer with con-
venient service when it i9 most
needed. To accomplish this.
goal in communities under
15,000 population, thie, Com-
pany selects a responsible
member of the community for
the Franchise program."
Persons interested ioi this
program should contact John
R. Amato, Sat. Dir.,, at 2245 S.
Monroe in Tallahassee or call
222-1539.


Raiders' Vince Campbell and
a Robert Farmer 14-yard gal-
lop.
The Raiders put on another
serious threat in the waning
moments of the third period
when Bernardo hit Vince
Campbell with two passes
good for 44 yards. In six plays
the Raiders were on the Shark
29, when Greg Abrams knock-
ed down a third down pass to
Campbell on the Shark six
yard line.
WIN COSTLY
The win was costly for the
Sharks, though. Mike Ether-
idge, probably the best block-
.er. on the team had his season
ended Friday night with a
shoulder injury. The injury,
which came on a spearing
infraction is what touched off
the fighting attempt between
the two teams. Jay Fleming
also received an injury which
makes him doubtful for the
remainder of the season.
Even though the Raiders
seemed determined to stop the
Sharks' primary running
threat, Robert Farmer, Far-


mer still picked up 100 yards'
in 19 carries. Ronald Daniels-
gained 41 yards in six carries-
in addition to his 93 yard'
kick-off return. Mike Ether-
idge picked up 17 yards in four
attempts before he had to
leave the field because of
injuries. Sandy Sanborn and
Bill Norton each added a yard.
The stout defense was led by
Chester Fennell who had eight
tackles and five assists, Sandy
Sanborn with seven tackles
and three assists, Bill Norton
with five tackles, Preston:
Gant with four, Ronald Dan-:
iels with three tackles and one
assist, Carl Beard with three
tackles and Greg Abrams wic'i
a pass interception.
Robert Johnson led the Rai

Someone once said, "Each
man, during his lifetime, is
entitled to one good woman
and one good dog." The wise
man cherishes both, neglects
neither and counts himself
among the blessed.


If that man is a hunter and
his dog is a hunting dog, then
surely his cup runneth over for
nowhere is a high quality
canine held in greater esteem
than in the hunting field.
Dr. 0. E. Frye, director of


the Game and Fresh Water
Fish Commission, commented
on the hunter's dog by saying
that poets may sing about the
companionship of boy and his
dog but the bond between the
hunter and his dog exceeds the
imagination of the poet. The
hunter's dog is more than a
companion and should be
viewed as a full partner in a
hunting venture.
It's difficult to visualize
hunting bobwhite quail with-
out a good dog to locate the
birds and recover those down-
ed by the hunter, and it is
beyond comprehension to ima-


gine the thought process or
animal behavior that can un-
ravel the scent mystery of a
passing deer, racoon or fox. A.
day in the field with a hunter
and his dog is a day of adven-
ture and partnership with
each making a contribution to
the success of the trip.
Frye added, "Many of the
ethics that apply to sports-
manship and man-to-man
hunting also fit the man-dog
relationship and the strong
bond between the hunter and
his dog is built on mutual
respect and admiration."

By Joe St. Clair
There was once a young
man who worked as an
apprentice under a fam-
ous stained glass artist.
The famous artist de-
signed and made the most
beautiful windows in the
country.
The young apprentice
gathered up and saved
every tiny piece of glass
the artist let fall on the
floor. Then one day the
young man took the tiny
bits and pieces he had
saved and began making
a window of his own crea-
tion. After months of
labor-his window was
completed.
To make a long story
short-the window made
from, bits and pieces of
was acclaimed 'as the
most beautiful ever
made. The young man
became famous in his
own right as a great
artist.
There are many frag-
ments of time and life
that can be turned into
great accomplishments.
The bits and pieces are
important, and the wise
use them effectively.
OUR THOUGHT TO
REMEMBER: Use every
moment to its fullest-
salvage the fragments of
life.

Meeting

Is Held
A "town hall" meeting to
obtain information for the
National Eastland Fisheries
Survey along the Gulf Coast
was held in Apalachicola on
Wednesday, December 3.
This public meeting was
held to obtain expressions
from fishermen on their fish-
eries problems.
Commerical fishermen,
sport fishermen, charter boat
operators, marina operators,
fish camp owners and others
who had an interest in the
development of national fish-
eries policies attended and
voiced their opinions.
Results of this meeting, and
others to be held throughout
the Gulf Coast area of Florida,
will be combined with expres-
sions from other parts of the
U. S. and presented to Con-
gress as the "voice of the fis-
hermen". These views will be
used as a basis for legislation
affecting fisheries in the
future.
Persons who were unable to
attend may express their
views in writing directly to the
Gulf States Marine Fisheries
Commission, 531 St. Louis St.,
