Asking for "Goodies"





City Writes Letter to "Santa"


Getting right into the activities of the
season, the City Commission wrote its letter
to Santa Claus Tuesday night, and contracted
with the Northwest Florida Planning and
Advisory Council to deliver the letter to one of
Santa's personal helpers.
The Commission agreed to file an
application for Block Grants to be acted upon
a year from now. The NWFPAC will be the
City's agent in filing the pre-application with
the Community Development Block Grant
Program.
The City has just completed the first
phase of a long-range program financed by
the Block Grant, when it opened the old
Washington High School recreation complex
to the public for use last month. The first
phase of the planned recreational complex


was financed by the Block Grant money
entirely.
The new Grant would enlarge on the
recreation complex and accomplish other
projects as well.
One difference is noted in the City's
"letter to Santa Claus" and a letter from a
child at Christmas time. The City's letter will
be for funds to be spent a year from now. The
City's letter will ask for grant funds to be used
during 1978.
In related action Tuesday night, the
Commission voted to call for bids on the first
of five projects to be financed for the coming
year by Block Grant money. A Grant of
$93,000 was approved two months ago and the
money is now available for spending,
according to Michael Wright, City Clerk.


Wright suggested the City call for bids for
extension of the sewage collection system to
Millview Subdivision in North Port St. Joe at
an estimated cost of around $35,000. "We have
the plans ready for this installation", Wright
said.
Other Block Grant expenditures during
the coming year will be divided up into four
other projects. An estimated $15,000 will be
spent in further improvements to the old
Washington High Gym, including a heating
system for the building. A former classroom
at the old school site will be remodeled into a
day care center at an estimated cost of
$18,000. Another former classroom at the site
will be remodeled for use at a teenage
recreation center at an estimated cost of
$18,000. A sum of $7,000 from the Grant has
been set aside for contingencies and other


local option activities.
If approved, the Grant applied for
Tuesday will be used to finance two projects.
A minor portion of the money would be used to
construct a fence around the Washington
recreation site and the major portion would
be used to finance the second phase of the
City's new drainage plan.
Phase one of the drainage plan is already
in the making, with funding requested from a
special Federal program which became
available during the past six months.
The status on this application is that it has
cleared the first two of three hurdles to
approval. The third hurdle is the most
important: it decides whether or not the
project is approved. The first two hurdles
merely test the correctness of the application.


City Is Asked to




Improve Center


A delegation of citizens from
North Port St. Joe requested
the City Commission to set up
some guidelines and hire per-
sonnel to operate the new
Washington recreation site
Tuesday night.
Mary Odell Jackson acted
as spokesman for the group of
about 20 people, asking for a
telephone at the site, authori-
zation for a watchman at the
site to carry a weapon, fines to
be assessed against offenders
damaging.the facilities, power
to arrest for the watchman,
installation of heat in the gym
building and repairs to the
lights which go out on occa-
sion.
The delegation said they had
met in a public meeting and
elected a Board of Directors to
operate the recreation pro-
gram consisting of C. L.
Sylvester as president; John
Lewis, vice-president; L. C.
Clark, treasurer; Cleo Bess,
secretary and Mary Odell
Jackson as advisor.
Mayor Pate said the Board
would take the requests under
advisement and said the Com-
mission would work up an
ordinance for operation of the
center to the best advantage
for everybody. "We'll have to



State



to Buy



Land
More Gulf County land will
be purchased by the State of
Florida as endangered lands
after action by the State
Cabinet Tuesday of this week.
Already the state owns
about 14,000 acres on the
shores of the Apalachicola
River south of Forbes Island
as endangered lands.
Action by the Cabinet Tues-
day approved purchase of
another 12,869 acres for $3.5,
principally from International
Paper Company. The tract to
be purchased is Forbes Island
and a small amount of other
shoreline acreage. Forbes Is-
land is the tract of land
between the Apalachicola and
Chipola Rivers south of the
Cut-off near Wewahitchka.
The state already owns
much of the Apalachicola
River shoreline from Forbes
Island south to the Apalachi-
cola Northern Railroad trestle
near Apalachicola.
The approval for purchase
came at the urging of Harmon
Shields, director of the De-
partment of Natural Resour-
ces. Shields said the purchase
would be "a major portion of
the lands needed to protect the
Apalachicola River estuary
and bay".
The Cabinet also approved
the purchase of 8,761 acres in
the Fakahatchee Strand in
central Florida for $3.3 mil-
lion.


work together in this matter",
Pate said. "There will be rules
and regulations which won't
satisfy everybody, but they
will be necessary for the good
of the majority", he said.
Mayor Pate said there is no


funds in the budget for hiring a
full-time director at the site,
but that the program will be
worked out under the direction
of the county recreation direc-
tor. "We plan to put a man at

Two Break-Ins Are


Under Investigation


Chief of Police H. W. Griffin
said his Department is inves-
tigating two break-ins which
occurred over the past week
end.
Some time Friday night or
early Saturday morning,
thieves broke into the St. Joe
Bar and took a quantity of
iaoney and checks estimated
to approximately $3,000. Grif-
fin said the bar owners could
not report whether or not any
merchandise had been taken.
The Chief of Police said his
Patrolman, James Graves,
checked the back door of the
bar, where the thieves appar-
ently gained entry, about 2:30
A.M., and they were fastened
securely at that time. Griffin
said there was no visible signs
of a forced entry at the door.
Owners of the bar discover-
ed the burglary on Saturday,
when they opened for busi-


ness.
A large quantity of silver in
the establishment had not
been taken. Griffin said only
checks and bills were missing.
"It's unusual for a thief to take
checks", Griffin said.
The second forced entry also
happened during the week
end, when vandals broke into
the Scout Hut on 10th Street
and did considerable damage
to materials in the building.
Griffin said the damage was
discovered at a Scout meeting
Monday night. "There had
been nobody in the building
since Friday afternoon", Grif-
fin said. He surmised the
damage was done sometime
between Friday afternoon and
Monday evening.
Griffin said the Police De-
partment has several leads in
both cases.

Santa Gets Welcome

Santa Claus gaily waves to the huge crowd which greeted
him in downtown Port St. Joe Saturday morning in one of the
best Christmas parades the city has ever seen. Santa had
perfect weather for his visit.

Dick Brown, right, presents prize money for winning floats in
the parade to the float sponsors. At left is Mrs. Ruth Arthur
who received second prize money for the Howard Creek
Baptist Mission. Rex Buzzett received the first place check

Recreation Director Is Named


Gulf County School Board
had three major items of
business for discussion Tues-
day afternoon in their regular
monthly meeting. The Board
was concerned with the ratifi-
cation of the employment of a
county recreation director to
take the place of Walter


Wilder who was elected Super-
intendent of Schools; awarded
a contract for construction of
an addition to the Vocational
Educational building here in
Port St. Joe and initiated a
program of collecting dam-
ages from an insurance firm
to pay for the damaged Coli-


seum roof by a hurricane in
1975.
The employment of John
Clenney was confirmed as the
new county recreation direc-
tor. Clenney is presently living
in Tennessee with his family.
He is not a stranger to the
area, since he is married to
the former Sandra Bracewell
of Port St. Joe.
Clenney is qualified for the
position from past experience.
He has also worked for a
period of time with the re-
habilitation of wayward youth
in Chicago, Ill. Clenney is
expected to be on the job on
January 1.
Clenney will be director of a
program which is financed
jointly by the School Board,
the County Commission, the
City of Port St. Joe and the
City of Wewahitchka.
BUILDING CONTRACT
Kolmetz Construction Com-
pany of Panama City was
awarded the construction bid
for the new addition to the
Port St. Joe High School
vocational educational build-
ing. Kolmetz was ruled the low
and successful bidder in a


field of three firms seeking the
job.
The Board accepted Kol-
metz' bid of $266,500, which
indluded all options called for
under alternate bids. Bids on
the project were all close
together, with only $1,250 sep-
arating the low and high bids.
The project will be paid for
with the county's share of
state capital outlay funds and
matching state money.
Alternates accepted by the
School Board included paving,
fencing, covered work area,
mill work, shelving, lockers,
dust collector and exhaust
hood.
INSURANCE PROBLEMS
A little over a year ago, a
hurricane damaged the roof to
the High School Coliseum.
Repeated attempts to repair
the roof had met with failure,
with patching material failing
to bond to the special roof
material.
A consultation with an ar-
chitect arrived at the decision
that the entire roof would have
to be replaced at a cost of
approximately $63,000 if the

supervision of Army Medic Sp5 Gary Scott in preparation for


a trip to Birmingham, Ala., for treatment of burns suffered
Monday morning. Little Patrick fell into a pail of hot water,
inflicting first and second degree burns over 35 percent of his
body. The helicopter airlift was arranged for by the Port St.
Joe ambulance squad. Other crewmen on the chopper were
Captains riwayne Dvoracek and Gary Campbell. Patrick
was treated at Municipal Hospital Monday morning before
the transfer to a burn center in Birmingham. Patrick is
expected to be in the Birmingham hospital for a week to 10
days. -Star photo


After nearly two months of
federal mediation, contract
talks between the Gulf County
School Board and the Gulf
County Classroom Teachers
Association (CTA) have pro-
gressed to the fact-finding
stage.
Over the past two months
the federal mediator, Jack
George of Mobile, was able to
bring the two parties together
on several areas of the con-
tract, but several issues in-
cluding salary, teaching con-
ditions, grievance procedure,
Association rights and fair
dismissal, were left unre-


solved.
On the decision to go to
fact-finding, Billy Barlow,
Chief Negotiator of the CTA,
commented, "It was the only
course of action left to take
and we feel that by having a
neutral party to listen to both
sides that the teachers will
receive a fair and equitable
contract."
Barlow further added "Most
school boards and teachers in
the state have settled con-
tracts but because the school
board team was not willing to
meet frequently enough and
the fact that they have been


hesitant in responding to CTA
counter-proposals, the process
has been drug out making it
necessary to open the dispute
for an investigation by a
Special Master."
The Special Master is the
person who will conduct hear-
ings and is selected mutually
by both parties. All proceed-
ings are governed and moni-
tored by the Public Employ-
ees Relations Commission.
As to when hearings will
initiate will be determined
after the Special Master has
been selected and has con-
tacted both parties.

No Fish with Chips?


Is Great Britain to face a future
of fish and chips without the Fish? If
so, can they survive such a future?
Don't laugh; this possibility isn't
as funny as it seems. Suppose
America had to do without hambur-
gers or hot dogs. Half the kids in the
nation would starve before they
learned that other things were good
to eat and nourishing also.
SGreat Britain doesn't face this
unfortunate future from choice.
They face such a fate because of the
outcome of the Anglo-Icelandic Cod
War. You say you didn't know there
was such a war? It has been
oughth" in dead seriousness for the
past year or so.
: All the nations of Europe have
long harvested the cod fish which
abounds off the shores of Iceland. In
recent years the cod fish has began
to.'diminish in numbers because of
fhe heavy fishing for what is one of


the staples of the European diet.
Iceland put a stop to the other
nations carrying off what it identi-
fied as its fish by imposing a 200 mile
limit. Great Britain opposed the
limit and initiated the war.
This past week, Great Britain
capitulated in the Cod War and left
the 200 mile limit, and most of the
cod fish, to the Icelanders.
Consider, if you will, what our
feelings would be if all the northern
nations of Latin America were to
converge on this section of the coast
of Florida when the red roe mullet
began to run. We would begin to
harbor much the same feelings as
the Icelanders. We would petition
Bob Sikes to impose a blockade by
the Navy and if that didn't work, we
would push for a 200 mile limit.
When you start messing with
someone's pocketbook or his dinner
table you are in for some serious
business.

ETAOIN SHRDLU

By WESLEY R. RAMSEY
...


Some of the things you learn on TV may be
useful some day.
Although I seldom get to watch TV in the
daytime, I was astonished last Tuesday at the
things one can learn on daytime TV and how
useful it- may be. Too, some of the daytime
programs are illiterate geniuses.
Last week I had one of those viruses which
"go around" on occasion and I was feeling tough
most of the first part of the week. Tuesday, I
went home to dinner, ate a bowl of soup and sat
down in my recliner to ease off my stomach and
recover from the exhaustion it causes. I
immediately went off to sleep. Sleeping in the
daytime is something I seldom do, except on a..
Sunlay .afternoon on -occasion.
I awakened about 1:00 and saw the remains
of something about "All My Kids" which my
daughter Carol has to see every day. Frenchie
said, "Why don't you just stay there awhile and
maybe you'll get to feeling better".
Carol and Frenchie went on back to the
office and left the TV going.
That's when I learned something. I was so
enthralled by what I saw I couldn't get another
nap.
I learned how to make shoe bags out of ladies
underwear material. I filed that bit of valuable
information for reference.
Then "Mary Hartman" came on. After 30
more minutes of that, the biliousness in my head
was greater than the biliousness in my
stomach; I thought I was feeling better (due to
one pain overruling the other, making the first
pain feel better) and I got up and went back to


Injuries, Deaths, Leap


With Advent of Season


With hunting season in full
swing here in the Panhandle,
the Rotary Club was shown a
film on gun handling safety at
their regular meeting last
Thursday.
Wendell Whitaker, Safety
Director of St. Joe Paper
Company, showed the club a
film which graphically dis-
played the serious problems
which can result from im-
properly handling a firearm.
The film, "Sweet Sunday's


Gone", developed the story of
what happened when a young
boy received his first gun and
took it out into the woods with
a friend to try out. The holiday
in the woods ended with one of
the boys being killed in an
accident.
Whitaker said improper
handling of firearms caused 15
fatalities in 39 accidents dur-
ing the hunting season in
Florida last year. Eleven of
the 15 fatalities were youths


under the age of 18. Whitaker
said statistics showed most of
the hunting accidents had deer
and dove hunters as their
victims.
The film charged gun own-
ers and users to know the
firearm, respect it, and al-
ways maintain muzzle con-
trol.
Guests of the Club were
Wheelettes Dorothy Boykins
and Wheelette sponsor, Bar-
bara Eells.


Tips for Georgians-


Planning to Attend Presidential Inauguration


TO: Georgia Residents
SUBJECT:. Recommended Behavior at Inaugural in
Washington, D.C.
January 20, 1977

1. Before leaving for Washington, clean red mud from
windshield.
2. Any cardboard box can be made to look like a suitcase
if brown shoe polish is smoothly applied. Boxes must have
tops but no ropes. When a few miles out of Georgia, remove
Overalls and brogans, and put them in your box. Change to
your Sunday suit, clean shirt, and good shoes. (wear socks).
S3. Limit occupancy of your car or pickup to a reasonable
number of riders. It looks country to overload a vehicle.


4. Those going on their tractors should leave three weeks
early. Remember to drive on the right side of the road at all
times, except when passing a slower tractor or a buddy on a
wagon.
5. Enroute, always buy a full tank of gas. A dollar's
'orth at a time requires too many stops.
6. On arrival in Washington; immediately get settled in
a tourist home or a boarding house. If they don't feed, try to
locate near an all-night cafe.
7. Leave soda crackers, viennas, R. C. Colas in car or
pickup. First class tourist homes and boarding houses do not
take kindly to guests who prepare food in their sleeping
rooms. A
8. Do not take Sears catalogs or corn cobs with you. Up


there, the outhouses are always inside, and they furnish a
rolled paper substitute. But remember to turn the knob on the
white bowl as this is a house rule and creates less air
pollution problems.
9. If invited by a County Agent, fertilizer manufacturer's
representative, or hog vaccine manufacturer's salesman to
have a drink in his hotel room, DO NOT spit tobacco juice on
the carpeted floor. The stain is very difficult to remove, and
some say it isn't sanitary. When asked what you'll drink,
don't say "Stump Juice". Keep your shoes on all the
time-the holes in your socks will make a bad impression.
10. And this above all-don't let any Yankee show you up.
Constant screaming of "HE'S A GOOD 'OLE BOY" will
make it difficult for them to engage you in conversation on
their intelligence level.


work.
"Mary Hartman" is enough to turn anyone
against TV.
The next time I get sick with a virus, I'm
going to do it at night, so I can have a choice
between a newspaper I haven't read if the TV
isn't entertaining. No more daytime gunk for
me.

It's a pity the City of New York can't play
baseball. The way the Yankees are shelling out
money these days for superior baseball players,
the City of New York might cure their financial
ailments by signing with the Yankees for four or
five years,... if only they could play the.game as
-well as Catfish Hunter.
The Yankees have now shelled out some
more of their seeming unlimited supply of cash
for Don Gullet and Reggie Jackson to go along
with Thurmon Munson and Catfish. If this keeps
up, it will soon cost more to go to the baseball
game in New York City than it does to have your
garbage picked up regularly.
Consider the New York football Giants and
the Jets. The Jets multi-million dollar invest-
ment, Joe Namath came up lame and the Giants'
$3 million running back, Czonka has also been
crippled up.
New York seems to have plenty of money to
try to buy athletic championships but not enough
to pay for the services for its people. From what
we read, their investment in "services" for its
people were just as ill advised as their teams'
investment in ball players who came up lame.

I thought the Christmas parade this year
came off pretty well. The crowd was big, the
weather was ideal, the floats were some of the
best in years and the number was just enough to
give the parade a fine, festive atmosphere.
I got roped into being one of the judges for
the floats at the last minute and I don't think
that'll happen again. It seems the Jaycees had a
hard time getting impartial judges and one
cancelled out at the last minute.
Being a judge this year was a tough job.
Every float should have won. I thought the
Kiwanis Club float should have won first place,
but the other two judges thought differently. I
thought the other floats which didn't receive
prizes deserved them, but there were not enough
to go around.
All in all, I think all the float entries can be
proud of their efforts. They added a great deal to
the parade and I'm sure those who saw the
parade enjoyed them.

One of the fringe benefits of being a City
Commissioner is that you get to go to the
Hospital employees Christmas party each year.
They know how to put on a Christmas feed and
have an enjoyable party.
This year's party was held in the Fire Station
and was a covered dish affair. Those covered
dish dinners remind me of the little boy in the
Bible with the five loaves and two fishes;
everybody eats his fill and there still seems to be
more food left than there was to start with.
One of the highlights of this year's dinner
was the homemade bread brought by hospital
lab technician Tracy Pierce. If Tracy ever gets
to where he can't make it among the slides and
test tubes, he can make it in the kitchen with his
bread.
Santa Claus was played by Rune Lilquist -
"The Stork" who puts you to sleep on the
operating table. He arrived in an ambulance
strapped to a stretcher. If Rune's chauffeurs
handle the real Santa like they handled him, they
won't get anything for Christmas.


Jaycees

"Party"

Children
The Port St. Joe Jaycees
entertained 65 underprivileg-
ed children at their annual
Christmas party held in the
High School Commons Area
last Saturday night.
The Jaycees collected the
kids from all over South Gulf
County and entertained them
with a visit by Santa Claus,
refreshments and a puppet
show presented by the Long
Avenue Baptist Puppet Play-
ers.
The Jaycees saw that Santa
presented all of the children
with at least three presents
from under the big Christmas
tree.
Ed Larabee was Jaycee
chairman for the program
which was financed by Jaycee
projects throughout the year.
In the photo at left, one of
the lucky kids gets to talk in

holly and serve with rich
and creamy eggnog.

Proper Preparation Will Keep


Christmas Tree Safe and Green


The Christmas tree is one of
the most popular and beautiful
symnbols of Christmas. It is
imp ortant to choose a fresh
tree and keep it as fresh as
possible so that your tree will
rC iain lovely throughout the
holidays.
] First of all select a tree with
9wd needle holding ability.
Florida's warm weather this
titie of year causes trees to
quickly wilt and drop their
needles. This can be severe
enough to completely defoliate
atr.ee and necessitate buying
a I.econd tree before Christ-
mas. Also choose a tree with
an:lttractive color and a full,
bushy appearance. Those
sliny, "see-through" trees
stIld be avoided. Most peo-
ple also prefer a conical,
sy,metrical shape to their
tree. The branches should be
stUrtdy enough to hold orna-
n~nts and other decorations
siwb as small gifts.
'ibe more recent the tree
hs : been cut the better.
Fe ehly cut trees will have
gcod needle holding quality
ai will have better resis-
taice to ignition. These points
aZS extremely important.
S ch pine and Douglas fir
ni rally have good needle
holding qualities. Spruce trees
tdM to lose needles quickly.
t5jnd the needles to deter-
ni.-e the tree's freshness. The
niedles should be supple and
sp9jngy. If the needles break,
tq6ittree is not fresh. Bounce
tH( butt of the tree on the
:gtUnd and see how many
needles fall. If more than a
fev% fall, the tree is old and
dir. Also feel the bottom of the
stump. The sap should be
sticky and moist not hard and


Chapter

Makes Plans

for Tea
St. Joseph Bay Chapter
DAR is scheduled to hold its
annual membership tea Wed-
ndsday, Dec. 15, from four to
six p.m., in the home of Mrs.
G nnon Buzzett at 1305 Monu-
mnent Ave.
In keeping with the theme
relative to ". the ancient
landmark..." of the National
Society of Daughters of the
American Revolutiop, the
Christmas party is in recogni-
tion of the fact that Christmas
is a Christian landmark, and
the chapter would encourage
its members to keep this in
mind as the blessed holy day
approaches.
Concentration at this time of
the year is on new member-
ship and the regular members
of St. Jospeh Bay Chapter are
reminded that they have the
privilege of inviting others
who might be prospective
members.
According to the DAR Hand-
book, "An applicant for mem-
bership must be 18 years of
age or older. She must be a
lineal descendant through a
valid marriage of an ancestor
who aided in achieving Ameri-
can independence."

Highway Patrol

'Persons' Sought
Women and minorities are
still being sought for the posi-
tion of trooper said the Florida
Highway Patrol recently.
Colonel Eldrige Beach, Pat-
rol director said, "We have
sought qualified applicants
from the minority population
for years and have recently
stepped up our recruiting in
that direction with emphasis
on obtaining women appli-
cants to become troopers."
The Patrol has never had a
woman trooper. A few have
applied but none has success-
fully completed the battery of
entrance examinations.
The director feels that one of
the major reasons women are
reluctant to apply is the patrol
has only one trooper to a car
and much of the patroling is
done miles from the nearest
help. Also much of it is at night
on long deserted stretches or
rural highway.
Beach concluded by saying,
"Anyone interested in obtain-
ing an application to become a


trooper can go by the nearest
Highway Patrol office or write
to "Personnel Office, 'Depart-
ment of Highway Safety and
Motor Vehicles, Neil Kirkman
Building, Tallahassee, Florida
32304."


caked.
After you have selected your
tree, follow these tips to main-
tain color and minimize
needle fall.
Stand the tree in a large
bucket of water in a shady and
cool place. The cooler the
better. If the tree has to lean
against a wall, turn it daily to
allow the branches to retain
their shape.
When you move the tree
indoors, make a fresh cut
across the trunk at least an
inch or two above the old cut to


allow the tree to absorb water.
Place the tree in a suitable
container which contains wa-
ter. In most homes a tree can
absorb up to a quart of water a
day so keep the reservoir
filled. A floral preservative,
such as those used for flower
arrangements added to the
water will help keep the tree
fresh.
Place the tree ii .the coolest
part of the room away from
the fireplace, radiator or other
heating units.
A well-watered tree in a cool


location will hold its needles
longer and retain its quality. It
will also be the safest as far as
a fire is concerned. Do keep
the tree away from a hot TV
set of candles. Also, carefully
check all Christmas tree lights
for loose connections or worn
wires. Avoid overloading
lighting circuits and unplug
lights when leaving the room.
Take the time to properly
select and care for your tree
this Christmas and you won't
have to buy a second one
before the great day arrives.

Party Goers Are Warned by FHP

Drinking and Driving Don't Mix


The Florida Highway Patrol
today warned party going
drinking drivers that alcoholic
beverages can mar the holi-
day season for many motor-
ists, because the chance of
being involved in a fatal
accident increases after that
first drink.
Colonel Eldrige Beach, di-
rector of the Patrol said,
"Alcohol was involved in more
fatal accidents in Florida in
1975 than any other contribut-
ing cause. This amounted to
625 fatal crashes."
Some people have the mis-


taken idea that alcoholic be-
verages stimulate the drinker.
On the contrary, it depresses
the central nervous system
and retards a person's normal
faculties. Only the body pro-
cesses can overcome the ef-
fects of alcohol and that takes
time.
Florida's traffic law re-
quires drivers arrested for
driving while intoxicated to
submit to a chemical test for
sobriety or be subject to
license suspension for a period
of three months. Not only does
the drinking driver increase


his chances of being involved
in an accident but the Patrol
warned he will also lose his


driving privilege upon convic-
tion.
In stressing the dangers of
drinking and driving, Colonel
Beach said, "If you are going
to drink, make arrangements
to let someone else who is not
drinking do the driving."

Investiture ceremonies for
Girl Scouts are always ex-
citing for it means welcoming
new friends into the world of
Scouting. Brownie Troop 118
heard the Girl Scout Promise
of four new girls on Thursday,
Dec. 2. Entering their first
year of Brownie activities are
Debbie Davis, Lee Lee Mon-
gold, DeAnn Young and Donna
Young.
During December Troop-118
created Christmas ornaments
to wear in the parade, making
the troop a walking Christ-
mas tree. And after the sore


feet from the marching was
over, they had some nice door
decorations to use at home,
keeping a Girl Scout law
which states, "A Girl Scout is
thrifty."
Brownies in the troop had a
lot of help in preparing for the
parade: parents who got them
there on time, mothers who
made extra phone calls and
last minute errands, and the
Econ-O-Wash Laundry who
permitted them to meet there
for refreshments after the
parade.


Brownies, Girl Scouts Study First


Aid; Make Tour of Ambulance


The scene last Wednesday
afternoon at the First United
Methodist ChUrch was one of
flashing red lights, big eyes,
lots of questions and plenty of
Brownie and Junior Girl
Scouts as two EMTs from the
Gulf County Ambulance
Squad paid a visit.
Jim Gregg and Vicki Lam-
berson gave the girls from
Brownie Troop 150 and Jr.
Troop 247 a guided tour of the
ambulance and explained
some of the equipment in it as
well as giving some basic first
aid instruction.-They demon-
Sstrated the use of an air splint
'for fractures, bag mask for
resuscitation, blood pressure.
cup and stethoscope,
The girls were taught how to


stop bleeding, what to do for a
sprain and snake bite, and
especially what not to do.
They were told how to call an
ambulance and when one
might be needed. They were
also told to caution parents to
pull-completely off the road
for an approaching ambu-
lance in either direction.
To the delight of the girls
they were given a live demon-
stration on how you use the
scoop stretcher and transfer
the victim to a litter and then
to the ambulance with the co-
opertion of a very anxious and
-nervous leader. Luckily they
decided to unstrap her at last.
: St was 'al fascinating and.
informative experience for 28


girls who had never been in an the EMTs and the Ambulance
ambulance before. Squad for donating their time
Both the leaders and the and talents to share with
girls expressed their thanks to them.

_k On Friday, December 4, the
St. Joseph Historical Society
held a brief ceremony mark-
ing the completion of the
underground sprinkler system
at the old St. Joseph's Ceme-
tery.
On hand representing the
society, were society presi-
del Mrs. Ralph Swatts; vice
president, Wayne Childers;
Mrs. R. H. Brinson, Mrs.
Jimmy McNeill, Miss Netta
Niblack, Mrs. Nobie Stone and
Mrs. G. F. Suber. Present for
the city were Mayor Frank
Pate, Commissioners Bennie
Roberts, Wesley Ramsey and
Tom Coldewey, and Dorton
Hadden, supervisor of the
city's parks and recreation
division.
Mrs. Swatts made a short
speech thanking the city com-
mission for their cooperation
in this and other society pro-
jects. She singled out Com-
missioner Bennie Roberts and
Mrs. R. H. Brinson, past
chairman of the society's
cemetery committee, and
"praised their efforts in making
this project a reality. Mrs.
Swatts then presented Comm.
Roberts with a check repre-
senting the society's portion of
the cost of the system.
The St. Joseph Historical
Cemetery has been an ongoing
project of the society since
1959. During the years since
then, the society has been able
to have the cemetery fenced,
landscaped, and many of the
markers and tombs restored.
As a result, some 1,500 visitors
tour the cemetery each year.
With the completion of the
sprinkler system, the society
plans further beautification of
the cemetery. An open house
is planned for the Spring
during which the public will be
invited to view the results of
these efforts.

New Law Terminating G.I. Bill


Becomes Effective January 1


The first of January will end.
another chapter in the annals
of military history when the
newly passed Public Law
terminating the existing G.I.
Bill becomes effective.
"The G.I. Bill will be termi-
nated as of January 1 of next
year, marking the end of the
Vietnam Era version of the
bill," commented Rich Hud-
gens, of the St. Petersburg
Veterans Administration of-
fice. "There were two prior
versions which followed World
War II and the Korean con-
flict."
The end of the current G.I.
Bill benefits will effect the
young people that are plan-
ning to enlist in the Armed
Forces after December 31.
The Marine Corps. recently
announced that persons desir-
ing to obtain the full G.I. Bill
assistance but are unable to go
on active duty prior to the
deadline date may use the
delayed entry program to
enable them to receive their
full G.I. Bill educational bene-
fits.
The Marine Corps' delayed
entry program will allow a
person to join prior to Decem-
ber 31 and go on active duty in
June, July or August.
"The Marine Corps believes
everyone should have the


opportunity to further their
education," remarked Major
C.R. Casey, commanding of-
ficer of the Marine Corps
Recruiting Service in Florida.
"We have several educational
assistance programs avail-


able within the Marine Corps
but we want this years high
school seniors who desire the
full G.I. Bill benefits to com-
plete high school and still be
eligible.

Pate told the delegation.
CONTRACT AWARDED
The City Commission ac-
cepted the bid of Griffin
Construction Company of
Blountstown to construct a
new City warehouse and gar-
age at its meeting Tuesday
night. Griffin was the low
bidder in a field of four a
month ago, but awarding bids
was held up to see if all
bidders met the specifications
set out by the City.
Griffin should start work on
the project within the next few
weeks.
The new warehouse and
garage will be built on proper-
ty recently purchased by the
City across from the County
Mosquito Control center.
Griffin's low bid was in the
amount of $119,000. The City
has the money on hand to pay
for the project. The money
was accured from interest
earned on investment of City


funds over the past three
years.
SCOUT HUT
Perry McFarland, Cub
Scout leader in the City ap-
peared before the Commission
asking for help in making
repairs to the Scout Hut. "It's
in a bad state of repair",
McFarland said, "and needs
extensive work".
Commissioner Jerry Sulli-
van said he was already
working on the project and
hoped to have his plans made
to begin construction of a new
Scout Hut after the first of the
year. "I have several people
committed to putting money
into the project", Sullivan
said, "and we should have the
commitments finalized
around the first. We're not
going to waste money on that
old building unless we have
to".
In other business, the Board
changed its next meeting date
to Monday, December 20. The
next meeting was originally


scheduled for Tuesday, De-
cember 21.
The Board also agreed to a
suggestion by Mayor Frank
Pate that the Commission
request land owners to make
property available to extend
Forest Park from its present
terminus at 20th Street on to
Niles road.

Of course, the School Board
had insurance on the roof, but
the insurance company wasn't
expected to pay for the entire

The Board is still having
trouble with the insurance
firm, however, in receiving
payment for the part damag-

by the Board as liaison man
between the Board and the
insurance firm, said the firm
is trying to pay on a basis of a

"and this is stipulated on all
papers and documents per-
taining to the building".

In the meantime, the mater-

expected to begin Monday
with replacing the entire roof

the roof will be covered with a

Raffield said the new roof

He talked about a proposed
airport and marina for the
public that had been offered
by Mr. Tapper.
Mr. George G. Tapper re-
plied and stated that the Judge
had not made one statement
that was 100 percent true. He
said he did trade 12 acres of
land but only 210 feet of marsh
front instead of the entire 12
acres being prime beach
front. He then gave a history
of the country club, road and
ditch. He said he and his
family did give the country
club land, the road right of
way and the additional ease-
ment for the bridge. He then
assured the Board that no
wrong doing has been done by
anyone in connection with the
Judge's allegations.
Mr. Frank Gunn assured the
Commission that the taxpay-
ers paid nothing at all on the
construction of the country
club.
Hon. William J. Rish said he
appreciated the Judge and
discussed the allegations
made by him but then asked
him a point blank question:
"Are you accusing me of
taking a bribe?" There was no '
answer to this question. Mr.
Rish asked if a Grand Jury
can be called to investigate
this.
Mr. Leo Kennedy told those
present that the present Board
knows very little about the
real history of the country
club, but that he has over eight
years of this history. He said
that when he took office, at the
expiration of Mr. George
Cooper's last term, the drain-
age plans for the country club
area were already made and
approved by Dr. Andrew
Rogers of the State Depart-
ment of Health, which also
included drainage for the In-
dian Pass area; that the state
furnished a dragline to Gulf
County, free of charge, for the
purpose of constructing these
two projects. He said that
when the drainage question
for the country club itself
appeared the plan was al-
ready approved but required a
few changes because of the
extension of the airstrip.
Hon. David C. Gaskin gave
the history of the land sales
that have been mentioned, in
that he was the attorney that
represented the seller. He said
that a public hearing was
held on the Kenner sale and
the Bungie sale was a private
sale that took place several
months after it had been
advertised for sale. He said

Friday night, the Sharks
traveled to Leon High and
were only able to out-score the
Lions in one quarter in a 79-62
loss for the Sharks.
Sam Nixon led the Shark
attack with 27 points, which
included 15 free throws. Tho-
mas was the only other Shark
in double scoring figures with
18 points.
The Sharks had an 11 point
deficit at the end of the first
period, but fought back in the
second stanza to a one point
margin at the half-time buz-
zer. The Sharks went cold in
the second half and lost both
periods to the Lions. At one
point in the fourth quarter, the
Sharks were as many as 17
points behind, but they-rallied
and made a game of it, ending
with their 79-62 loss.
Bruce led the Lions with 15
points.

ed that the Board request the

Jury investigation. Motion
seconded by Comm. Owens. In
a discussion of this .motion
Comm. Player said he did not
believe it is the duty of the
Board to call for an investiga-
tion because the Judge only
said that he believe these
things or that he assumed
these things; that the Judge
did not say a law had been
broken and that some of his
argument was on what he had
heard. Mr. Rish said that he
urged a Grand Jury look into
this matter. The Clerk told the
Board that he vill request the
Circuit Court to call a Grand
Jury. Upon vote, the following

Mrs. Donna Fuselier ques-
tioned the Board as to the cost

about to collapse already.

missioner, City of Port St. Joe,

this request at a later date.
