State Trying to Buy





More River Land


Tuesday's County Commis-
sion meeting was sort of a
blah affair with only small
routine wants coming to the
fore: until the meeting was
winding down, that is. Just as
the Board was trying to ad-
journ at 12:45, in walked
Charles Smith of the Depart-


ment of Natural Resources
and asked for permission to
use the County's power of
eminent domain over property
owners on the banks of the
Apalachicola River south of
Brickyard Cut-off. It seems
the State of Florida wants to
buy the property, which con-


sists of some 13,000 acres of
river swampland. Smith said
only about 3,000 acres of the
land is in Gulf County.
Smith said the property in
question is owned by St. Regis
and International paper com-
panies, Elberta Crate Com-
pany, Buckeye Cellulose Co.,


and MK Ranches. The pro-
perty is in the area of Forbes
Island, East Tract and Sauls
Creek.
The State of Florida wants
the property to maintain the
watershed of the Apalachicola
Bay collection basin. The pro-
perty would be turned over to
the Game and Fresh Water
Fish Commission for man-
agement.
The Commission, naturally,
was reluctant to give its
approval for using its power to
condemn until they heard the
full story, which turned out to
be a continuation of a pur-
chase of river property for
state protection. The program
started two years ago with the
state purchasing land adjoin-
ing the River in the area
where the River enters the
Bay.
SSmith said the property
owners asked that the land be
condemned and taken for
federal tax purposes. "When
they bought that land, it was
worth about $10.00 per acre;
now it's worth around $250",
Smith said. "This is a pretty
healthy capital gains and the
companies had rather not sell
if they have to give all they
realize from the sale in federal
capital gains taxes. "The con-
demning and taking of the
land helps to get around this
tax", Smith said.
The Department of Natural
Resources has no power to
condemn and take property.
This is why they were asking
to borrow the power of Gulf
County.
The county agreed to go
along with the action provided
they be kept fully up to date
with what is going on.


WANT CANAL BASIN
A shrimping company
which has recently moved to
the county, asked the County
Commission for permission to
place a boat basin on the
Intercoastal Waterway near
Overstreet. They want to
dredge a wide access channel
and a 100-foot-square turning
basin for their boats to berth,
load and unload and take on
fuel.
The two men, Guy Gibson
and Melvin Nachstheim, are
operating two boats in a
long-distance operation out of
the canal.
They pointed out that the
Corps of Engineers, the En-
vironmental Protective Agen-
cy and other federal agencies
will have to approve their
request before it can become a
reality. But first, they must
have the approval of the
county board.
The Board agreed to adver-
tise for objections, but later in
the meeting, attorney Bob
Moore came before the Board
and pointed out the concern
had intended to approach the
board at its last meeting
which was postponed. "We're
already behind", Moore said.
"All of the areas to be
explored in a public hearing
will be covered thoroughly by
the Corps of Engineers and
EPA. We would ask that you
waive the public hearing in
light of this."
After Moore's presentation,
the Board agreed to go ahead
and give their approval im-
mediately.
OAK GROVE PLANS
Attorney William J. Rish
announced that the Depart-
ment of Environmental Re-
sources would complete their
examination of the plans for
the Oak Grove Water and
Sewer system by the end of
this week.
Nations said he sent the
plans to DER prior to con-
struction to make sure they
met the DER criteria. "They
have assured me they will be
through with the plans by the
end of this week", Nations
said. He pointed that the water
portion of the project had
already been approved and
that only the sewer was under
scrutiny.

Tommy Pitts takes Over



Mosquito Control Dept.


C. E. Daniell, who has been
trying to retire from his
directorship of the Gulf Coun-
ty Mosquito Control program
for the past six months finally
managed to have his duties
relieved Tuesday morning and
his successor, Tommy Pitts,
took over the operation of the
department.
Daniell had decided last
April to retire, but the County
found it couldn't just run out
and hire a successor. It was
now necessary that,the direc-.,
tor have an engineering de-
gree. What the county paid for
the job didn't seem to attract
many engineers, so they had
to reasses the situation.
After the six months of
reassessing and looking for a
man, Pitts, formerly of Port
St. Joe, and with a degree in
civil engineering, has agreed
to take the job.
In the meantime, Daniell
has been serving on a month to
month basis, all the time
urging the Commission to find
his successor.
Tuesday, after Daniell turn-
ed in his keys (and didn't
have them handed right back
to him) Commission Chair-
man Money presented Daniell
with a plaque for his nearly 20


years of service.
During his tenure of service
with the County, Daniell has
run what was probably the
most efficient operation of the
county.


Daniell will still be retained
by the county for a period of
time on a part-time or advi-
sory basis, until Pitts can
become fully acclimated to
the office..


Rish Says He'll Push for


Completion of Center


Rep. William J. Rish said
this week that he was going to
go for completion of the
Sunland Center on St. Joseph's
Peninsula in the next session
of the Legislature. He said, "I
have received considerable
support for this project and I
want to move for it now that
we have some help in the
leadership in Northwest Flor-
ida. Ed Fortune, who is Ap-
propriations Chairman, has
been most helpful to me, as
well as Representative Earl
Hutto and others in this area."
Rish further stated that the
facility would ultimately be
valued at 4- or 5-million dol-
lars and would employ several
people to run it nearly all
year-long. "This one of my pet
projects", he said, "And I
want to make sure that we get


it done as soon as possible.
The people who will be using
this facility are the type
people who need state help,
and we would be doing less
than our duty if we fail them."


With the time for appeals passing by
Monday of this week with no court action by
Wayne Childers to further his claim there
may have been problems with the voting
machines denying people the proper vote
count, it seems-as if Childer's claim has been
decided by default.
Childer's contention had its day in court
last Thursday morning, when the matter of
whether or not his claim was sufficient to
warrant an order from a circuit judge to open
the machines and examine them for accur-
acy.
Childers had claimed one of the machines
had not been properly sealed and two
machines had seals affixed with serial
numbers other than what was on the reports.
Machine custodian O'Neal McDaniel explain-
ed this could have happened by the poll-hold-
ers copying down the wrong numbers on the
seals affixed to the machines after the voting.
The other seal just was not sealed properly,
McDaniell said.
Childers also charged that there could be
mechanical malfunctions in the machines
giving erroneous counts in the various races
but not necessarily all of them. He based his
contention on the wide discrepancy in the
number of votes received in the various races
in the election.
In Thursday's hearing, Judge Clyde Wells
of DeFuniak Springs ruled, after hearing
about 20 minutes of arguments by attorneys
bn both sides of the issue that Childer's
argument was not sufficient to cause the
machines to be opened. Judge Wells said that
since opening the machines involved would
not change the out-come of Childer's race, he
could see no reason to open them.
In previous testimony, Frank Baker, a
Blountstown attorney representing Childers,
had stated, "We don't want a re-count. We
want an examination of the machine for
mechanical deficiencies". Baker said, "We
think the candidates' right for a fair and
accurate count is established. As of now,
neither we nor the canvassing board can
verify the fact that the machines are
operating properly".
County Judge David Taunton, chairman
of the Gulf county Canvassing Board was not
present at the hearing. Taunton's secretary,
Mrs. Shirley House had told the Canvassing
Board's attorney, William J. Rish that he had
gone home the day before prior to the
summons to court being delivered and that he
had an appointment in Tallahassee that
morning, (Thursday) and couldn't be present
for the hearing. Other members of the
Canvassing Board, County Commission
chairman Eldridge Money and Supervisor of
Elections, Dessie Lee Parker were both
present and Rish acted as their spokesman.


Rish told the court the Canvassing Board
was interested in seeing that the vote be
properly recorded, but that all the records in
their possession showed the figures reported
to be accurate. He pointed out that all records
coincided with the count on the separate and
collective voting machines and the Canvas-
sing Board had certified the election as
correct.
Attorney Bob Moore, acting as attorney
for elected Superintendent of Schools, Walter
Wilder, made a motion that the claim of
Childers be dismissed. He pointed out the
statutes cited in the complaint make the
claim a candidate's issue and the argument in
court was that it was not. Moore also made
other points of law, all the while stressing the
point the matter of the machines being right
or wrong would not change the outcome of the
election.
Judge Wells questioned attorney Baker
by asking, "What happens if the machines are
found improper. What would be your next
move?"
Baker replied, "Then we would ask for
the election to be declared null and void".
Judge Wells then replied, "If you could
show the court that a malfunction in these
particular machines could change the elec-
tion I might be inclined to go along with your
request but since you cannot, I am going to
dismiss the request".
LATER ACTION
As a follow-up in this matter, even after
the deadline for complaints had gone by
Tuesday of this week, Glenn E. Boord, a
representative of automatic Voting Machine
company was in town Tuesday to examine the
machines. Boord was in town at the request of
Board Chairman Eldridge Money, "To satisfy
the minds of those involved", he said.
Boord conducted an extensive examina-
tion of the machines Tuesday and showed
several witnesses how they were. virtually
fool-proof as far as tampering or malfunction
was concerned. Boord pointed out that the
machines were mechanical. Pushing the
lever performs all the activity of the machine
and provides the power. Electricity is used
only for operating the lights in the booth.
Boord showed how the machine would
lock if tampering is attempted: the machine
is opened during the middle of an election: the
lever wasn't sufficiently pushed to one side or
another.
"If the regular routine isn't followed the
machine will lock", Boord said. "If the
regular routine is followed it will either
record the vote or a malfunction will be very
evident when the machine is opened to
remove the vote record copy".
Boord examined all the machines and
said all were working properly.

Traffic


Fatality

Geneva Dunn, age 23, be-
came Port St. Joe's first
traffic fatality in nearly four
years Tuesday night, when
she was pronounced dead on
arrival at Municipal Hospital
following an accident on the
overpass.
Preliminary reports of the
events leading up to the death
are still sketchy but are still
under investigation by the
Gulf County Sheriff's De-
partment and the Florida
Highway Patrol.
According to City Police
Patrolman Howard Rogers,
Miss Dunn was riding across
the overpass in a car driventby
John Byrd. Both are from Port
St. Joe. Rogers said Byrd told
him Miss Dunn started trying
to jump from the moving: car
and finally succeeded. She hit
the roadway in the path of a
second car, driven by Frank
Griffin, which struck her:and
ran completely over her.
Rogers said Walter Graham
was also crossing the overpass
at the same time and saw the
body on the road after it had
been hit and he stopped. In the
meantime, Griffin didn't know
what he had hit and was
turning around to come back
to the scene. Byrd, also, had
turned around and was com-
ing back to the scene, which
was near the top of the
overpass.
Before Rogers or any other
investigative officer arrived
at. the scene, Miss Dunn was
put in Byrd's car and taken to
Municipal Hospital where Dr.
Vijay Poonai pronounced her
dead on arrival.

City Expresses Gratitude to Brock


Charlie Brock, Port St. Joe's
City Clerk for the past 10 years
was given a farewell party by
the City Commission Saturday
night, at the Country Club. All
of the present and past City
employees Brock had worked
directly with as well as sever-
al of his close friends were
invited to the party.
One of the ones giving
testimony to Brock's abilities
was Mayor Frank Pate who
expressed the thinking of the
remainder of the Commission
when he said, "Charlie Brock
has been good for the City of
Port St. Joe. He has paid his
own way with his timely
investments of the City's ex-
cess money, which has saved
the tax payer many dollars in
taxes each year by earning
interest on the City's funds."
Brock would invest City mon-
ey for as long as six months
and as short a time as a week
end to earn an extra dollar for
the City.
Pate went on to say that
during his 10 years here, the
City has never been late with
payment of a bill and has
never failed to take a discount.
"We are in fine shape now due
to the know-how of Brock".
Brock's testimonials were
not limited to his financial
ability. He was also lauded for
his concern for the people of
the City and his devotion to the
job, even at times when he
wasn't required to be.

Brock will be phasing out his
connections with the City for


the next few weeks.
The Commission presented


Brock with a premium set of office employees presented
golf clubs at the dinner and his him with a new golf bag.

SOur Citizens Fortunate


A remarkable poll which, for the
first time, measures attitudes of
about two-thirds of the world's
people, some 2.6 billion of them, was
rjeently released in Washington,
I.C. Conducted by Dr. George Gal-
lup and funded by the Charles F.
Kettering Foundation, the poll illus-
trates again why the United States,
among relatively few of the world's
nations, is blessed indeed.
Testifying before the Senate
Foreign Relations Committee on the
poll's results, which encompass a
whopping 16 volumes, Gallup said
one-hour interviews were conducted
with 10,000 persons at every social
lel in more than 70 countries. They
itre asked 100 questions during the
two and one-half year project.
"Nearly half of the people of the
wdrld are engaged in an unending
struggle for survival," Gallup told
theiSenators. "Only in the advanced
industrial states of the western
world can the inhabitants engage in
anything akin to a 'pursuit of happi-
ness'. In the planning stages of this
lohal survey, it was hoped that
somewhere in the world a nation
would be found whose people are

Among the poll results cited by
Gallup were these:
-At every income level, indi-
viduals in every region of the world
surveyed were most concerned
with: the ability of their country to
overcome inflation and a high cost of
living with unemployment, and with
shortages of daily necessities, in-
cluding food.
-Almost one in four of those

County


Board


Action

The County Commission
took action in several matters
Tuesday, several of which are
reported here.
The Board agreed to aban-
don three feet of Duval Street
in Oak Grove in Block 2 on the
south side of the street. En-
croachments by buildings in
years past has made title
along the street cloudy in
several situations. Abandon-
ment of three feet of the street
takes care of the title situa-
tion.

Judge David Taunton told
the Board he thought they
should compensate Commis-
sioner Eldridge Money for his
missing work to sit in on the
many sessions of the Canvas-
sing Board. Judge Taunton
also asked for time on the
agenda at the next meeting to
explain several long distance
telephone calls his office had
made which had been ques-
tioned by the Board.
The Commission agreed to
hear Judge Taunton at the
next meeting, but didn't come
up with an agreement to
compensate Mr. Money.
The Board gave permission
to Mrs. J. C. Bodiford to
remove some sand pumped
onto county land near the
Dead Lakes by river dredging.
Mrs. Bodiford wanted some of
the sand to build up her lot on
the river.
Bill Simmons, chairman of
the library committee, was
told that plans for the new
building here in Port st. Joe
would probably be presented
to the Board at their next
meeting by the architect,
Charles Arthur Gaskin of We-
wahitchka. Chairman Money
said, "It's my understanding
that all the work is finished
except the foundation".

Cecil G. Costin, Jr., appear-
ed before the Board and
offered them a road on St. Joe
Beach, which was not included
in a subdivision. Costin said
the road ran east from High-
way 98 and that he was asking
that the county assume no
obligation to construct it or
improve it.
The Board accepted the
road which is located roughly
halfway between the Wonder
Bar and the Lighthouse on St.
Joe Beach.
The Board approved a bid of
$1,806.00 to Motorola Corpora
tion for the purchase of pagers
for the Port St. Joe ambulance
technicians.
County Sanitary Engineer,
N. C. Schweikert, suggested
the Board consider placing
temporary outdoor toilets in
the Indian Lagoon area during
the periods of special hunts on
St. Vincent's Island. "The
health problems get sort of
bad during these times in this
area", Schweikert said.
The Commission agreed to
consider the matter.

ETAOIN SHRDLU

! By WESLEY R. RAMSEY


Attorney General Robert Shevin didn't look
too happy to be chosen as the example of what
the swine flu innoculation would feel like last
week. The intrepid Attorney General looked a bit
queazy to me as he backed up to the shot gun
which was to force the vaccine under his skin. As
a matter of fact, he looked a bit scared and I was
fearful for a moment there he was going to faint
dead away.
I noticed the nurse giving the shot had the
AG firmly under the arm pit with her own arm so
he couldn't slip and fall to the floor. It may have
been a hammer lock to keep him from running
away. As much as she had to tug, pull, talk and
gesture at the AG, it looked as if she were trying
to get him to hold still so she could do her job.
Finally, it was accomplished, and like many
another man who doesn't like to get shots, Shevin
grinned sheepishly and gingerly held a small pad
of cotton soaked in alcohol over the "wound"
where the vaccine entered.
He was a brave lad, but I believe if the
television cameras hadn't been focused in on his
example-setting, he would have broken and run
and possibly might never get a swine flu shot or
any other kind of shot.

I think somebody is giving Wayne Childers
some bad advice.
His attempt to have the voting machines
examined for operating accuracy met with little
success last Thursday, largely because an error

child might have. It is a law
that every child has the
opportunity to learn at their
full capacity. It's true these
things cost money, but, they
deserve the right for an educa-
tion so they can become the
best person they can. Person-
ally I know of several children
who need this chance in Port
St. Joe, and maybe the School
Board will see fit to start this
year. With a little foresight the
people there could have some
of the things this school has.
Yes it's a public school, and
the parents here are working
to make it a better school for
the children of tomorrow.

was, would not change the outcome of his
election. Since nobody else who lost through the
vote in these particular precincts took up the
challenge with Childers, it stands to reason that
only he and his advisors believe they are not
functioning properly.
The signature slips tally with the number
shown to have voted on the machines. This is
pretty conclusive evidence the machines were
recording properly. Apparently Judge Wells
thought so too, since.it didn't take him more than
2,25 minutes 't disinissx the charges.
Like Childers, we would like to know if the
machines aren't operating properly. With the
balancing signature slips as evidence, it appears
there is not enough doubt to warrant tearing the
machines apart and examining them. More care
should be taken to see that the seal numbers are
recorded properly, the records kept straight and
the tally sheets kept in order. This is what
started it all in the first place. Possibly the poll
workers need more instruction or at least one of
them needs thorough instruction in the record
keeping and be responsible for this activity.
Childers should be proud of his vote. It's not
often a man runs for the first time in this county
and comes up with such a showing. He did well.
Of course, "well" isn't good enough for someone
who wants to be elected. At his age, there will be
other times. It would seem the prudent thing for
him to do would be for him to take his suspicions
and file them away for campaign material the
next time he plans to run. It will surely get him
more votes than challenging the honesty of many
poll workers now.

For the past week or 10 days I have heard the
statement, "It's going to be a long season now".
Of course, this statement was made in light of
the several blacks who quit the football team in a
huff because they couldn't get the team staffed
as they wanted. To the credit of our premiere
coaching staff here at Port St. Joe High School, I
think the same ultimatum would have come up if
it had been white boys wanting to decide who
played what and when. The boys left the team
and now can't come back.
Friday night's performance against Mari-
anna, proved the season may be just as long, but
it will be interesting.
The Sharks have done a lot of work in
putting things together since their game with
Lincoln. They still don't have what you would
call a potent offense, but they play a good game.
They didn't have a potent offense before the
walk-out, if you remember.
Considering the upheaval they have had and
the short time they have had to work out a new
routine, they did very well against our big
neighbor to the north.
For those of you who have had pride in our
teams of the past because they made a good
showing on the field with anybody they played, it
looks like you're still going to see this attribute, if
the seven substitutes hold out.

Everybody is offering their opinion on the
debate, so I'll just have to throw in my two cents
worth. (After last week's editorial on the penny,
you know now, just how much that's worth).
Personally, I don't see how anybody can lay
claim to having "won" the latest Carter-Ford
debate. Both offered about as much food for
thought and to convince us they could think, as a
Captain and Tennille hat joke.

Straw Ballot


On Machines


In November


THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla. THURSDAY, OCT. 7, 1976


PAGE THREE


Gulf County will have a local
question on the November
general election ballot.
Early this year when the
County Commission combined
the operations of the Veterans
Service Officer and the Civil
Defense Director under one
full-time director, the Board
took their move with 'the
understanding that the ques-
tion of using the full-time
director or a part-time direc-
tor for both services would be
re-introduced.
Tuesday, the County Com-
mission went back to the
minutes of the meeting early
this year where Commissioner
Everette Owens made the
'motion and dug up the lan-
guage stipulated then for the
question to be placed on the
ballot.
Some discussion developed
about whether or not the straw
ballot, which will in way bind
the Commission to change or"
maintain their present sys-
tem, would be placed on the
voting machine or whether it
would be a special, separate
paper ballot.
After considerable duscus-
sion, the Commission decided
to place the question on the
voting machine. The "ques-
tion" will in reality be ques-
tions. The first choice on the
machine will be, "I approve
combining the CD and Veter-
ans Service Office with one
full time director and one full
time secretary". Item number
two will read, "I approve
separation of the C.D. and
Veterans Service Office with
two part time directors and
two full time secretaries."
Again, the result of the vote
will not bind the Commis-


sioners in either continuing
the present operation or
changing it. The Commission
says the County is saving
nearly $10,000 per year on
these two offices with their
present arrangement, which
is one full time manager and
one full time secretary to
operate both offices.

The Kick-off

Oh boy, two in a row. Big Chief Bowden had his
medicine men drum up the winning spirit again last week.
Now if he can add the Gators scalp, he can renew his
contract. That may be asking too much. I doubt if Dickey .
and Co. will be willing to play the role of "General Custer"
for him.
The Gators have a good shot at the SEC title as of this
week. There's still Georgia, Auburn, Kentucky and Ten-
nessee. No small orders, but if they can win in Jackson-
ville they should take it. If you want a dark horse, at this
time, it could be LSU. In spite of their loss to Florida.
Note: Look for Notre Dame to have a new coach in
1977. The Irish don't like being un-rated and right
now they have a good chance of going 8-3. Maybe
Dan Devine and John McKay can swap jobs. Tampa
Bay may look good to Devine after the pressures at
Notre Dame and I'll bet any college will look good to
Coach McKay by season's end.

Over 30,000 School



Children Have Problems


With the start of another
school year, many Florida
families will be faced with the
problem of a child who has
difficulty in learning.
It is estimated that about
30,000 Florida school children
have learning problems, ac-
cording to figures received by
the Florida Medical Associa-
tion from the Bureau of Edu-


cation for Exceptional Chil-
dren. Three-fourths of these
children are male and the pro-
blem frequently runs in fami-
lies.
The FMA lists some signs
that can help alert parents as
to whether their child has a
learning problem-inappro-
priate behavior for age, dis-
tractibility, apparent laziness,


withdrawal, short attention
span, unwillingness to cooper-
ate, poor memory, poor co-
ordination, inability to sit still,
trouble remembering what he
sees or hears, tendency to
work from right to left, gen-
eral confusion about direction,
writes letters upside down or
backwards, and walks, runs,
hops, skips or jumps more

awkwardly than his play-
mates. If the child has trouble
bringing his hands together to
catch a ball he may have
trouble writing on the black-
board. If the parent feels there
is reason for concern over the
child's development, he is
urged to talk with the family
pediatrician and with officials
at the school.
Whether there is a learning
problem or not, the child often
can benefit from parental help
in learning. Here are some
suggestions from the FMA:

ronment with orderly habits of

Sor petition. Comm. Owens told the
he seal of this
:tober, 1976. Board he had a request to
cover a privately purchased
culvert on a property owner's
S land fronting state maintained
.4t 107 highway. He stated that after
checking with the Department
ccuptional of Transportation he had
Occupational
nber 30, 1976, found they would not cover
n or before culverts on the state main-
1, 1976, shall
,1 shal gained roads. He said that it
to a fifteen was not fair for the county to
tion to the cover culverts for private pro-
perty owners on county main-
4t9-30 tainted roads and not on the
state maintained roads.
OF Comm. Owens then moved the
ME Board cover the culverts pur-
g duly sworn,
ath tha he chased on state highways


provided a state permit is ob-
tained and presented to the
Board. Comm. Player second-
ed the motion and it passed
unanimously.
Financial Officer Jerry
Gates reported that Charles
Dunn, Department of Trans-
portation, has informed him
by phone that it would cost
approximately $30,000 for an
asphalt treatment and $20,000
for a double gravel treatment
pavement of the Kemp and
Roberts Cemetery Roads. He
also said the Board would be
required to pay 30 percent of
the cost to'obtain the matching
federal funds under the rural
roads program. After discus-
sion Comm. Owens moved the
Board pave the Kemp and
Roberts Cemetery Roads us-
ing the double gravel treat-
ment method. Comm. Player
seconded the motion and it
passed unanimously. In addi-
tion, by unanimous vote, the
Board passed the following
resolution to authorize ex-
penditure of secondary funds
for pavement of the two roads.
RESOLUTION 76-14
Whereas, certain federal
funds are available to the
Board of County Commission-
ers of Gulf County, Florida, on
a 70-30 matching basis, and
Whereas, the Board of Coun-
ty Commissioners of Gulf
County has determined that it
would be in the best interest of
the County to expend certain
secondary funds in obtaining
federal funds with which to
pave the Kemp Cemetery and
Roberts Cemetery roads,
Now, therefore, be it re-
solved that ,the Board of
County Commissioners of Gulf
County, Florida, do hereby
authorize the State Depart-
ment of Transportation to uti-
lize 30 percent of the total cost
for the hard surfacing of the
Kemp Cemetery Road and the
Roberts Cemetery Road, up to
a total of $12,000, or 30 percent,
whichever is the lesser. (end).
Benny Roberts, City Com-
missioner of Port St. Joe, told
the Board he would again like
to request on behalf of the city
that the Board purchase a fire
truck from Federal Revenue
Sharing funds for the city and
allow the city to repay the
Board from fire district funds.
He said he would like for the
Board to give him an answer
one way or the other. Comm.
Money said he saw no reason
why the Board could not help
out provided Federal Revenue
Sharing was available.
Comm. Owens said he could
not commit himself at this
point as there were too many
ifs concerning Federal Re-
venue Sharing Funds. He said
he would help if there was any
possible way. Mr. Roberts
then asked the Board the
status of the paving of Cypress
Avenue under the federal
rural roads program. The Fi-
nancial Officer agreed to


County Gets Check


Gulf County received a check for $16,000
through efforts of Civil Defense last week to
pay for storm-caused damage to the old
courthouse in Wewahitchka. The building
suffered considerable damage to the roof in
Hurricane Eloise and since the building is a
shelter in times of emergency, it was eligible
for federal money to pay for the damages.

check on this matter and
report back to Mr. Roberts.
Chairman Money then pre-
sented the final plans and
specifications for the Oak
Grove Water and Sewer Sys-
tem. He stated that the Board
take bids on the job as soon as
all of the legal work was in.
The Sheriff presented his
bond account check no. 351 in
the amount of $77.00 repre-
senting unclaimed bond
monies, pursuant to F.S.
116.21, in the following cases:
No. 74-524, State vs. Doyle

There being no further busi-

adjourn.

Review


Pageantry

Rotarians viewed once
again the pageantry, the ex-
citement and the suspense
which was last year's Orange
Bowl game and parade in
Miami. The film, shown by
George Tapper, a member of
the Orange Bowl committee,
showed highlights of the par-
ade, the game between Okla-
homa and Michigan and the
legendary half time cere-
monies.
Tapper announced that he
had tickets to this year's
Orange Bowl if anyone wanted
one. "They're not free", he
pointed, "Nobody gets into the
Orange Bowl free. Even the
committee members have to
pay".

Sharks Rebound but Still



Lose to Marianna, 13-0


PY POLYESTER CORD


The rain pelted down all day
long last Friday and the
Sharks took a 40-0 drubbing
the week before at the hands
of Lincoln High, and it was
threatening to rain again just
any second, but despite it all,
there was a good crowd in
Shark stadium when the whis-
tle blew for the kick-off.
With the weather and the
defeat of the week before
caused by a nucleus of the
team quitting over a dispute,
it was suspected last Friday
would be a long night. But the
,Sharks had,.done.some work


during the week filling in the
gaps and held the Marianna
Bulldogs to only 13 points,
though the Sharks could man-
age none of their own.

A quarter of football could-
n't have been more even than
the first one as both teams
managed only two first downs
and both managed to lose a
fumble. The Sharks lost their
fumble on their own 34 yard
line in their first possession of
the football and it looked bad
for the Sharks. The 'Dogs
drove-to the Shark 12 whe'e"


,T '
It's Only Your



MONEY


A Loan Again, Naturally
By GERALD A. LEWIS
Comptroller of Florida


Very few people are fortu-
nate enough to be able to pay
for everything in cash. To
most Americans, the thought
of writing out a check for a
costly operation or car re-
pair is an impossible dream.
Almost everyone, at one
Time or another, experiences
the need for ready cash.
When this occurs, a loan is
usually the answer. But you
should be aware of the types
of loans available and choose
the kind which best serves
your needs.
Single payment loans are
exactly what their name im-
plies: Loans which must be
paid off all at one time.
There are two different types
of single payment loans: De-
mand lorns, or loans repaid
at the lender's discretion,
and time loans, which means
paying the entire balance at
a pre-set maturity date. Sin-
gle payment loans usually
require collateral, such as
stocks or bonds.
Credit card loans can pro-
vide money in a hurry, be-
cause you use your already -
established credit to obtain
the loan. But credit card
loans should not be overused
because of the high rate of
interest, usually 12 to 18 per
cent per year, on the unpaid
balance.
Homeowners may obtain
needed money by taking out
a second mortgage, using the
house as collateral. This
means that in addition to the


initial mortgage which fi-
nanced the purchase of your
home, you may take out a
second mortgage for a given
period of time. This type of
loan can provide you with
quick money but since the in-
terest rates are so high, it is
an expensive way to borrow.
Installment loans are re-
paid through monthly pay-
ments to the lender.
Passbook and life insur-
ance loans provide a popular
way to borrow. With a pass-
book loan, it is necessary to
have money in the bank.
Your savings are held as col-
lateral, even though they
continue to earn interest.
Failure to repay the loan re-
sults in the bank taking mon-
ey from your savings ac-
count. A life insurance loan
is taken out against the cash
value that has accumulated
in your policy. The loan may
be repaid whenever you are
ready, and the interest rate
is moderate. But there is an
element of danger with this
type of loan. Should you die
before repaying it, the
amount owed would be sub-
tracted from the proceeds
before it is paid to your bene-
ficiary.
Whenever you need a loan,
shop around. That's always
the best policy.
For more information on
this subject, contact State
Comptroller, Gerald A.
Lewis, The Capitol, Talla-
hassee 32304. (AFNS)


their drive was stalled by a
fumble.
The second period was only
four plays old when the Bull-
dogs scored their first of two
touchdowns. After a Shark
punt, the Bulldogs took over
on their own 39 yard line. On
their first play from scrim-
mage, quarterback Bobby
Pierce hit Mark Robinson with
a 61 yard scoring pass. Pierce
completed only three passes
during the evening, but two of
them were for touchdowns.
The Sharks put on a drive
late in the second period after
they got the ball on a Marian-
na fumble. A Marianna penal-
ty on the play put the Sharks
on the 'Dog 37. On the first
play, Keith Neel fumbled and
lost the ball on the Marianna
28. The very next play the
Bulldogs fumbled and lost the
ball right back to the Sharks.
The Sharks couldn't convert
a fourth and two situation,
however, and lost the ball on
downs on the Bulldog 22.
The Bulldogs took the kick
as the second half opened and
in nine plays had marched to
the Shark nine yard line,
sparked by a 15-yard gallop by
Pierce and a 20 yard rush up
the middle by big Marvin
Harvey. With fourth and goal
to go, Pierce hit Mark Robin-
son again in the corner of the
end zone for the score. The
point after attempt was no
good and the Bulldogs had 13
points on the board all they
were to get that night.
The Sharks had one other
chance at a score late in the
third period when Keith Neel


recovered a Bulldog fumble on
the opponent's 23 yard line.
Try as they would, the Sharks
could get nothing going and
had to end up turning the ball
over on downs.
For the Sharks it was the big
defensive effort which kept
them in the game.
Chester Fennell led the pack
with 11 tackles and eight
assists. Curtis Williams was
close behind with 10 tackles
and four assists. Jody Taylor
chalked up six and five, Ray
Lawrence had nine and 10, and
Keef Pettis had seven and
five.

now living-weighs as much as
48,000 bee hummingbirds,
the smallest birds in the
world!


THANK YOU

I thank you the voters for the confidence
placed in me with your vote in the past two
primaries.

I thank all of my supporters for making our
victory possible. To the voters of my opponent I
ask you to join with us in working to make Gulf
County the best place in the world to live. I will
devote my best to merit the confidence placed in
me and I assure you I will never let you down.
Thank you very much.
