School Board Strains, But Succeeds


In Reaching A Final Budget Figure


After going through almost
as much travail as a woman
having a baby, the Gulf Coun-
ty School Board finally arriv-
ed at a tentative budget figure
and millage rate Tuesday of
this week.
The negotiations started out
last Friday in a marathon
all-day session in which Board
Members and Superintendent
Bidwell sparred 'with each
other about how the money
was allocated.

schools had been ordered to
stop buying supplies in early

when the Board wound up the
year with money in the bank;
considerable money.
Raffield said his figures told
him Wewahitchka Elemen-
tary was receiving $675.00 per
student; Port St. Joe Elemen-
tary, $778.00; Port St. Joe

County Sets Mill Rate at 6.2


It wasn't an easy job to do,
but the County Commission
voted last Thursday night, to
tentatively increase the mill-
age rate for the new tax year
by 1.3 mills.
The tax increase will bring
the total county millage to 6.2
throughout the county. Those
people living within the St.
Joseph Fire Control District
will pay an additional two-
tenths of a mill and those in
the Tupelo Fire Control Dis-
trict will pay an additional
eleven hundreths of a mill.
County financial agent, Jer-
ry Gates said the total county
budget now stands at a figure
of $2,549,225.14. Last year the
budget total was '$2,202,720.22.
THURSDAY'S MEETING
At Thursday's meeting,
Gates pointed out that the


county had not raised taxes
since 1970. He said increased
spending had been paid for by
other income, including fed-
eral revenue sharing money.
The status of revenue sharing
funds wasn't decided on when
the budget was drawn and the
county could not arrange their
plans counting on the funds,
The hearing, to decide whe-
ther or not to apply the 1.3 mill
increase evolved into a ques-
tion and answer session with
visitors in the audience shoot-
ing answers to Gates and the
Commissioners.
John Kramer asked, "If the
county hasn't raised taxes
since 1970, who is raising
them?"
Gates replied, "The School
Board has raised taxes by
some $300,000 since that

Kramer then asked, "Who's
raising taxes now?"

Final Rally

Here Saturday

The last in a series of
political rallies prior to the
Tuesday primary election will
be held here in Port St. Joe
Saturday afternoon, beginning
at 4:00 p.m.
Saturday's rally will be held
in the City Park near the
Florida First National Bank at
the foot of Fifth Street.
In addition to the afternoon
of speaking by the various
candidates running for office,
the Port St. Joe Jaycees will
be selling charcoaled ham-
burgers and drinks.


Gates reptiles, "The County
Commission."
Wade Barrier asked, "Why
has workmen's compensation
insurance gone up eight times
in five years?"
Gates replied the county had
experienced one death and
two major injuries in that time
by men who had been with the
county for a long while.
Gates went on to explain the
county had asked for bids for
the insurance, but only their
present carrier was willing to
maintain the coverage.
Weldon Roche observed,
"We're not mad. We're just
paying too many taxes. They
are hitting our pocketbook too
hard".
Kramer observed, "I'm con-
cerned for the man on a fixed
or retirement income.

traffic hazard at an intersection. The worker misunderstood
and cut off several before he was stopped to the cropped
appearance as shown in the photo, right, above. The only
consolation is that it will grow out again.


He works all his life to pay for
a home, then when he retires,
the taxes are so high he can't
live in it".
Wade Barrier observed,
"We don't expect miracles,
but we would appreciate as
much austerity as possible."
Commissioner Silas Player
said before next year's bud-
get, the Commission was
thinking about having a public
hearing with all elected offi-
cials who spend tax money,
giving an account of the
stewardship of their particu-
lar office in a public meeting.
Bob Freeman asked, "What
happens if you don't give
offices what they want with
which to operate?"
Commissioner Otis Davis
replied, "They live without it,
just like they did this past year
when asked for a 10 percent

Tough Days Ahead


With the promise of tough days
to come for the future of our local
governments, it should only rightly
follow that the people would take a
'closer look at the ones they elect to
,.see our governments through these
trying times.

With the primaries only six days
away from beginning, we think it
necessary that every citizen -
especially every tax-paying citizen
-of the county make a resolution to
cast their vote next Tuesday and
cast it for the person they think will


do the job best and be more capable
of taking care of our future. There is
no place in our future for us to vote
for an old friend, a good acquaint-
ance, for the person who needs a job.
This has been our practice in the
past and must now be abandoned.
There are some good responsi-
ble people in almost every race
coming up in the elections and it is
our duty to go to the polls and select
these people. If we don't, then hold
on to your hats because the future in
local government promises to be
very rocky.

All the prognosticators, headline writers and
news analysts have taken the position that
President Ford is starting this political race with
his Democratic opponent, Jimmy Carter, as the
underdog. Mr. Ford is already behind before he
starts running, if you would believe what you see
and hear over the national media.
Mr. Ford may very well be behind at the
opening gate, but it seems to me as if an
incumbent president in an improving economy,
peacetime, improving employment picture and
better balance of payments would at least have a
fighting chance against an unknown quantity.
I really think the onus has been put on Mr.
Carter. I never believed in omens before, but I do
believe Mr. Carter and his supporters would be
wise to consider what happened here last week.
It could very well be the sign that the Super
Peanut from Georgia is wilting.
Some of Mr. Carter's supporters here in Port
St. Joe brought me a peanut enclosed in a
growing pot recently. The peanut was to be
shelled, placed back in the container and
eventually produce fruit of the peanut. The
directions "were enclosed on an attached card,


SCS Exists to Aid Land


User with Practice of


Conservation Planning


Today, many people speak
the name Soil Conservation
Service, but do not truly
understand the Soil Conserva-
tion Service mission and how
we as an organization carry
out soil and water conserva-
tion activities.
The primary purpose of the
Soil Conservation Service is to
assist all landusers with the
development and application
of conservation plans for deve-
lopment and protection of


their soil and water resources.
This is carried out in this
county by the Tupelo Soil and
Water Conservation District.
In years past the Soil Con-
servation Service and the
districts worked mainly with
farmers and ranchers, but
because of the demand in
non-farm and urban sectors
for services from conserva-
tion districts the districts have
extended their services to
non-farm rural landusers as
well as to urban landusers.


Holiday Death


Toll Set At 28


Traffic crashes on Florida's
highways during the Labor
Day holiday weekend could
take the lives of 28 persons but
the number can be lower if all
motorists will apply their best
driving ability said the Flor-
ida Highway Patrol.
The 78-hour holiday period
begins at 6:00 p.m., Friday,
September 3, and ends mid-
night, Monday, September'6.
In an appeal to motorists to
help curb the predicted num-
ber of deaths, Colonel Eldrige
Beach, Director of the Patrol
said, "Safe and reasonable
driving involves a great deal
of common sense and the
determination to drive defen-
sively."
A study of accidents occur-
ring during the holiday period
last year reveals that careless


driving caused five deaths;
crossing the center-line,
three; driving while intoxicat-
ed, one; driver had been
drinking, three; speeding, five
and four pedestrians were
killed by failing to yield the
right-of-way. The total for last
year was 17.
Also 71 percent of the people
killed last year during the
Labor Day holiday period
were killed after dark and 71
percent occurred in clear

The Soil Conservation Ser-
vice, through the local conser-
vation districts, is helping
more and more municipal and
county officials, planning bo-
dies and developers cope with
problems of water supply and
disposal, erosion, improper
land use, flooding and sedi-
mentation.
The Soil Conservation Ser-
vice advises and gives guide-
lines for controlling erosion on
subdivisions, shopping cen-
ters, highways and airports--
erosion that clogs streams,
reservoirs and increases
greatly the cost to you, of
water purification and main-
taining roads.
The Service provides all
types of soils information
relating to limitations and
advantages for house build-
ing, recreation, road construc-
tion, waste disposal and many
other uses.
We also provide standards
for temporary erosion-control
devices in construction areas
and advise on recreation sites,
resource development trends,
and water-supply potentials.
Assistance for services ren-
dered whether advice, consul-
tation or technical aid is free

telling one just how to nourish the plant to
adult-hood and fruitfulness.
My daughter shelled the peanut, as per
instructions, placed it in the sunshine with water
every day, as per instructions; allowed it to grow
to a height of three! inches, again, as per
instructions, then re-planted it in the sunshine,
as per instruction, generously watering it daily.
The first thing that happened when that
peanut got into the open air, in the bright
sunlight was that it died. I'm just wondering if
there is a parallel there. When Mr. Carter begins
to bring the issues into the open, will the glae of
inspection cause his cadidacy to wither and di.'
like that peanut, or wil it take root and grow into
a healthy, fruitful plait.
We'll see.

Here in Northwes Florida, there are two
elections every fout years. There is the
"election", really a primary, to elect our local
officials and anotheri election to elect our
President and Senators While many people here
in the Panhandle thhk Republican in their
philosophy, they are al registered Democrats,
with sparse exceptions because that is the only
way they have of having a choice in their local
government. Our localtgovernment officials are
elected in the primary
A little counting or the fingers, shows that
our "election" Panhanile style, will be held in
just six days. Then twi weeks later comes the
second primary and itwill all be over.
Then we can concentrate on the President
and Senator.
Maybe it's a good thing that our "election" is
taken care of in the pririaries. This allows us to
place our full attention to the selection of a
President and a Senatoiwithout the distraction
of John Doe saying "Vte for me for commis-
sioner".
We've had some god races this year. Like
the Presidential race, we have had some
different philosophies to hoose from in our local
elections. There has bee a definite choice and
difference of opinion in several races. It seems
as if more people are getting interested in their
local politics. When oneconsiders the salaries
many local elected officials make now, it
behooves those of us whi pay the freight to get
interested.
Our firm has been going political printing
and advertising for 23 ycrs now, and we have
never had so-called campaignn treasurers". A
candidate came in and ordered his material
himself, came back and piked it up and paid for
it himself in the past. Th4 year, several of our
local campaigners have organizations with
treasurers, workers, and the whole bit. This
shows local interest and 'e're glad of it.
For too long we've ha a no-care attitude in
our local government. Anexample was the tax
increase hearings held ths past month by the
county. Commissioner Eeritt Owens made a
telling point when explaining why the 1.3 mill
increase was necessary t(a dozen people who
had come to a hearing to Ind out why. "Pele
must not mind the increase', Owens said. ou-AguF
six months ago, we took move to save the
county nearly $10,000 in talmoney and we had a
petition here with 700 namrs on it saying not to
make the move. Tonight, Nk have about a dozen
here asking us not to sped more tax payers'
money. It's tough to mak the proper decision
when the majority appareilly doesn't care that
we spend more of their n4iey".
That was a good point Skull.

Unusual Pet


Barney and Irene Amerson of 802 Fourth Street are
shown with their pet oppossum "Vagabond." Barney found
the baby oppossum about four months ago when it was still
just a few inches long. He first had to feed it by eyedropper,
then chewed food, before it could start eating on its own.
Vagabond has turned out to be quite a character, thinking of
Barney as its mother. The only time she gives any trouble is
when Barney gets soap in her eyes while getting a bath.

care of.
Raffield said, "If that floor
is ruined agair, you can bet
your butt this Board will have
to eat that floor. Insurance
will not pay for its repair
again". Raffield went on to
state the entire Board was
responsible p(r the situation.
"We instructed the floor man
to have the repairs made
before school started and he is
doing just that", he said.
Bidwell said the State Cabi-
net was to make a decision
'that, day. allowing the School
to use some of its capital,
outlay money for the roof
repair and a contractor in
Jacksonville has agreed to do
the job. Bidwell said the
Jacksonville contractor was
the only one contacted who
was interested in the job.
TUESDAY'S SESSION
After airing their dirty linen
on Friday's meeting, the
School Board got down to the
actual work of drawing up a
budget on Tuesday and came
up with a slight budget cut in
local taxes.
Last year's budget levied a
total of 8.9 mills, including
bonded indebtedness. Bidwell
said the new budget will levy
8.8 total mills.
The new budget will require
money. Tentatively, the total
figure has been set at $3,145,-
330.63,, while last year's total
was $3,047,084.85. "Most of the
increase in money will come
from state funds", Bidwell
said. He pointed out that Gulf
County will receive $2,178,000
from the state this year, as


opposed to receipts of $2,081,-
000 last year.
The new budget includes an
increase in salary of five
percent for non-instructional
personnel. This item earlier in
the budget process by Bidwell,
was what started all the
investigation as to why ex-
pense money was cut off from
individual schools when the
Board ended the year with a
surplus.
A public hearing will be held
on the new tentative budget,
but the date has not been set
as yet,. Bidwell sai i the- hear-
ing date will probably be set at
the next Board meeting on
September 14.

cut in every office."
Freeman said, "Why not out
1.3 mills from the various
offices and let them live with
it?"
That was the tone of the
meeting. The tax payers were
willing to pay for what was
needed, but reluctant to pay
one cent more.
Commissioner Everett Ow-
ens noted, "We recognize the
problem. By the same token,
we came up with a plan to
combine the Civil Defense and
Veterans' Service offices ear-
lier this year to save the
county money in operations.

"COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT
LOCK GRANT PROGRAM PHASE II
, NOTICE OF FINDING OF
NO SIGNIFICANT EFFECT
Notice Is'_iereby given that the City of
Port St. Joe, Florida, has prepared an
environmental review record on the pro-
jects hereinafter described and had
determined that said projects will have
no significant effect on the quality of the
human environment. Location is North
Port St. Joe and brief description of
projects:
Project I: Continuing conversion of
former Washington High School
Gymnasium to Neighborhood Com-
munity Center. Conversion includes
Installing complete new heating,
lighting and plumbing systems.
Project II: Extend sewage collection
system to Miliview Subdivision in
North Port St. Joe.
Project I1i: Repair & remodel a class-
room building of former Washington
High School to be used as a daycare
center for the-residents of that area.
Project IV: Repair & remodel a class-
room of former Washington High


School for use as a Teenage Recrea-
tion Center and Program Area.
The finding of no significant effect is
based on the following:-
These four projects are designed to
and will improve the environment of a
depressed area. They are extremely
beneficial to the citizens of the neigh-
borhood involved and will create phy-
sical, social, moral and recreational
advantages not presently available or
otherwise obtainable. There is no pos-
sible way that any of these projects
could harm or be detrimental to the
environment or the citizens involved.
The environmental review record res-
pecting said projects is available at City
Hall, Port St. Joe, Florida, between the
hours of 8:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M., Monday
thru Friday, where the same may be
examined and copied. No further en-
vironmental review is proposed to be
conducted on said projects; and the City
of Port St. Joe intends to request the U.
S. Department of Housing and Urban
Development (HUD) to release funds for
said projects.


During this Bicentennial year it is only
fitting that we Americans pause and reflect
back on those things that have made this a
great nation.

The most important among these are God
fearing men who recognize that it is only
through God's infinite mercy that we have
grown, prospered, and stand tall in leadership
among nations.


Comments respecting the environmen-
tal impacts of the above described pro-
jects may be submitted to the City of
Port St. Joe, P. 0. Box A, Port St. Joe,
Fla. 32456, no later than September 17,

Erisman says that the best
shelters from electrical
storms are buildings with
lightning rods, enclosed cars


on which all four tires are in-
flated, and any good size
structure.
If none of these shelters is
available, Erisman advises
that you seek shelter in a ditch
or other low area or in heavy
woods.


Don't let yourself become a
human lightning rod during
one of Florida's late summer
electrical storms, warns a
University of Florida (UF)
Extension safety specialist.
Dr. Gary Erisman, agricul-
tural engineer with the UF's
Institute of Food and Agri-
cultural Sciences (IFAS), sug-
gests that if you are caught
outdoors during such a storm
you should seek shelter, leav-
ing open spaces such as golf
courses, beaches and fields.
You also should avoid stand-
ing under an isolated tree or
next to a wire fence, he adds.
If you are swimming when a
storm blows up, get out of the
water at once.
In buildings that have no
lightning protection, avoid

PAGE EIGHT THURSDAY, SEPT. 2, 1976 THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla.


Football coach Wayne Tay-
lor told the Rotary Club last
Thursday that Port St. Joe's
football chances this year are
even more tenuous than they
were last year. "We just don't
have enough boys", Taylor
said, explaining that there
were not many boys in the
current top three grades in
high school. He said things
were looking up, as the junior
high program had its largest
number in a long time to
report for practice.
Taylor said the team had
lost three starters they were
counting on this year. These
were Tim Hatcher, Mano
Whitehead and Jay Fleming,
who had either moved away or
were injured to the extent they
couldn't play.
The team will start this.


year's season with 33 players,
five of whom were starters
last year. These are, Ray
Lawrence, Preston Gant, Jodi'
Taylor and Chester Fennell.
Fleming was operated on for
appendicitis recently and may
be able to play again before
the season ends.
In the scheduling, Taylor
said he had the usual prob-
lems of getting schools our
size to play us. "DeFuniak
Springs and Bonifay have
dropped us from their sche-
dule". Taylor said he had
replaced Monticello with Mar-
ianna, Carter-Parramore with
Lincoln High of Tallahassee,
secured Perry for a one year
contract and scheduled Ruth-
erford to round out the sched-
ule.
The schedule contains, a 1A


foe, five 2A (Port St. Joe's
ranking), three 3A and one 4A
team on the schedule.
New rulings will require
interior linemen to wear 53, 79
numbers, creating difficulties
for small teams like Port St.
Joe which uses many of its

But Green hopes to have a
joint meeting of opponents and

to discuss studies and data
presented for the dam.
'If Florida agencies con-
tinue their opposition, I don't

project," Green said in an
interview. "The chances of the
dam are not good if opposed
by the Governor and the Cabi-
net."
The Corps, with the backing
of Georgia and Alabama com-
mercial shipping interests,
wants to build a dam on the
Apalachicola near Blounts-
town. The dam, Alabama and
Georgia officials say, will
allow for more boats on the
river, boosting economies of
financially-depressed towns in
the area.

MESSAGE
I from the Florida Doctors
Back to School Reminders


Millions of Florida children will
be starting back to school soon.
Isyour child ready physically for
the coming school year?
Doctors have found that
troubles with grades often stem
from physical problems, such as
undetected poor vision or poor
hearing, or chronic conditions
listless. -
that leave the child tired and







The Florida Medical Association
recommends a thorough health
Examination for all 5 and
6-year-olds who are starting to
school for the first time. Your
physician will know what to do.
His examination will cover all
aspects of your child's health.
and will encompass hearing (to
make certain he can hear the
teacher) and vision (to make
certain he can see the
blackboard).
MOST SCHOOL BOARDS
REQUIRE HEALTH EXAM
Most County School Boards
require a health exam for
beginning students. Many
-schools also require certain
- immunizations against
infectious disease. Florida
doctors advise parents to check
s-with their own physician. Your
doctor will know the
requirements of your
community.
SThe majority of doctors feel that
four or five thorough
examinations during the school
years are sufficient for healthy
youngsters. These usually are
spaced at the start of the first
School year, about the fourth
grade, about the seventh grade.
at the ninth or tenth grade, and
"upon graduation.


Florida doctors stress that if any
unusual symptoms arise at an,
time, a visit to your doctor is in
order. Also, if your child is going
out for football or any other
contact sport, it is important
that he or she have a thorough
examination. No health clinic
provided by the school can take
the place of your child's personal






relationship with his or her
doctor. Your personal physician
knows the emotional as well as
the physical make-up of your
child.
FMA RECOMMENDS SAFETY
SESSION
The FMA recommends a careful
home coaching session on some
of the fundamentals of safety on
the eve of the school, term.
Remember, in the excitement of
the first few days of school, the
younger child may forget aH of
the safety warnings you have
been teaching him or her.
Make certain that your child
knows how to cross streets and
intersections on his way to and
from school. He should know
that the crossing guards are
there for his protection, and
must be obeyed. He should know
about proper behavior on the
school bus. He should know the
rules of bicycle safety.
Your child is this country's most
precious natural resource. Your
doctor cares about your child
and is willing to help you to
guard his health and safety.
This is a medical message

TradingStamps:Do TheyRaise Prices?
By GERALD A. LEWIS
Comptroller of Florida


Recent studies have indi-
cated that the effect of tra-
ding stamps in a given mar-
ketplace is not to raise prices
but 'to lower them. Trade
surveys reveal that the pre-
miums obtained by consum-
ers have not been offset by
price increases. In a study of
supermarket merchandis-
ing 85.3 out of the 1,360 sup-
ermarkets questioned re-
portedly made no change in
their prices after adding
stamps. Another 9.3 showed
lower prices after bringing
in stamps. Those reporting
higher prices came to a low
5.4 percent.
One of the clearest indica-
tions that stamps have not
driven food prices up is data
compiled by the Bureau of
Labor Statistics. Since non-
,istamp stores use the strate-
gy of-lower prices to attract
customers, it is safe to say
that this tendency has a fav-
, orable effect on grocery pri-
1 ces in general. Also, the cost
of the stamps, to the retailer,


must be offset by increased
volume. If he raised his pri-
ces, his revenue would drop,
and he would not be able to
recoup the cost of the stamp
investment.
While it's impossible to get
"something for nothing",
stamps are made available
to customers at no extra
cost. The key word here is
"extra". In a store which
sells on credit, the cost of the
stamps cancel out the cost of
the credit. The customer, in
effect, breaks even. Mer-
chants using stamps for pro-
motional purposes may see a
lower overhead cost per dol-
lar of sales. In other words,
the stamp saver pays for the
stamps instead of the store
overhead. Again, there is no
extra cost, and the customer
breaks even.
If you have any further
questions regarding trading
stamps, contact State Comp-
troller Gerald A. Lewis, The
Capitol, Tallahassee, Flori-
da 32304. (AFNS)
