additional local effort to fi-

census check by the Univer-
sity of Florida said we had lost
population during the past five
years. This will cost us in
federal and state matching
money, since one of the main
criteria for deciding how
much money we will receive is
based on population. It's going
to cost us."
Two main changes the Com-
mission is looking at in the
next budget is the possibility'
of lumping the police and fire
departments into one public
safety department with per-
sonnel responsible for both
activities. This would mean
at least four more full-time
employees which would nat-
urally cost more money.
Another budget unknown is
solid waste disposal. The City
is tied in with the county
program in solid waste dispo-

Two Juveniles Caught

In Break-In Attempt

Chief of Police H. W. Griffin
has announced that two ju-
veniles have been arrested
and charged with the burglary
of Pate's 66 Service Station,
which had been burglarized on
June 24.
According to Chief Griffin,
Officer B. G. Lightfoot was on
special assignment in connec-
tion with the burglaries, when
on the morning of Friday, July
1, at about 12:30 a.mn., he ob-
served two suspects enter a
rear window of Pate's.

Backed up by Asst. Chief
Roy Robinson, Officer Larry
O'Shall, and Deputy Arnold
Tolliver, the station was
searched. The two suspects,
ages 16 and 17, were found
hiding inside. They were'each
charged with one count each
of burglary and receiving
stolen property..
The investigation is contin-
uing and further charges are
anticipated. Both juveniles
were turned over to the Divi-
sion of Youth Services.

hours. The station had been
broken into for the two pre-
vious weeks.
This past week, the Police
Department also wrote "sol-
ved" on the case of the young
boys harassing home owners
in the Garrison Avenue'area.
The young boys had been
scaring women who lived
alone by scratching on the
screens, rattling doors, tap-
ping on windows and other
disquieting things for an elder-
ly woman living alone. They
had also been rummaging
through people's carports,
taking such things as ice
cream from freezers and mov-
ing items from one home to

levied for these two offenses.
The moving violation cita-
tion, which includes any viola-
tion of speed limits, running
stop signs, driving on the
wrong side, etc., will carry a
fine of $57.75. Prior to July 1 of
this year, the fine for these
violations was $27.75.
The drinking driver is the
one who will catch it in the
pocketbook if he is caught
behind the wheel under the
influence of alcohol. It will
cost a drinking driver $502.00
if he is caught and the breath
test proves he has had too
much to drink. If the driver
refuses to take the test, the
fine is levied automatically.
Before the change in the law
took effect, it cost $302.00.
These extra funds are sup-
,posed to be deposited in a fund
administered by the Depart-
ment of Highway Safety and
Motor Vehicles and subse-
quently distributed to good
drivers in the form of insur-.
ance premium rebates.

many thousands of dollars saved
each year if the several government
operations couldioperate in such a
manner as this in all tasks of large
proportions. There is a possibility
that much more work might get
done, also.
Another case of cooperation
which is bearing fruit is the con-
struction of the new softball complex
which was started here in Port St.
Joe last week. The City obtained the
grant, furnished the trucks for
hauling clay and the machinery and
labor for spreading it. The county
had the clay in a pit for which they
had the easement, so they donated
the dirt and the machine to load the
trucks. The School Board had the
excess propertyto put the fields on
and made it available.

that he has been responsible
for is depriving you and me-
and every other man, woman

what Walter Richardson has
called "the best volunteer am-
bulance service in the State of
Florida." A service comprised

of dedicated citizens, who
have volunteered their time
and effort-including 81 hours
of special class room train-
ing-and untold hours of their
time around the clock-24
hours a day, 7 days a week-

After the pancake days were over,
the Kiwanians began to explore places
they could best put the money they
earned, they hit on the idea of using it
to purchase the camping equipment
for the Girl Scouts.
At last Tuesday's meeting, the
Kiwanians presented the Girl Scouts
with four tents, two lanterns and a

camp stove, to use on camping trips.

I've about come to the conclusion that, even
though I like holidays and look forward to them
coming along in order to take a few days off, they
still cannot come at a "good time". A good time
would be a time when we could take the holiday
off without having to prepare for the following
week before takingff or making up what wasn't
done while we were off cooling if.' "i
With a newspaper, it makes it a little more
binding, because it still has to come out at the
same time and on the same day with the same
amount of work involved in its production. Since
the week is already filled up with getting it out, a
holiday stuck in the middle doesn't do much for
our timetable.
Still, I got this page out of the way last
Friday afternoon, in anticipation of taking off
Friday afternoon and not coming back to the
office until Tuesday morning. That much time
off from a weekly newspaper is almost like
taking a vacation.
Even though we didn't see it first hand
before putting it down here, I saw enough of the
crowds at the beach last Thursday while putting
papers out to our sale points to know that the
beaches were going to have a banner time of
business over the Fourth. That's good; all our
businesses here in Gulf County can stand a little
shot in the arm and a holiday in the middle of the
summer is just the thing to give it to the beaches.
Friday, it looked like rain and the weather
forecast was for rain. Even if it came, I don't
think it would dampen the spirits of those here in
Port St. Joe much. They would still have a good

We spent our holiday up near Macon,
partaking of brother-ii-liaw's annual Fourth of
July barbecue at which the fatted pig arid gat (if
there is any such thing as a fatted goat) were
slain and laid on the sacrificial fires for an
all-night roasting and an hour to eat it.
It's a pity a person can't eat off a mess of
barbecue for at least as long as it takes to
prepare. Can't you just imagine the enjoyment of
savouring the taste of good barbecue for a half
day at a time?

A new law went into effect just in time to
affect the holiday driver and his penchant for
taking on a load of spirits at times.
It is now more expensive to speed and drive
while drinking. In the past, if a driver was
convicted of speeding (moving violation) he was
fined $25.00. Now the tab for getting a little heavy
in the foot is $55.00. They say inflation comes
from too much pressure on the money supply.
This particular inflation comes from too much
pressure on the gas.
If you are one of those who drink then drive,
you had better hold on to your pocketbook with
two hands. Come to think of it, if you're drunk
and driving, you and others on the highway
would probably be better off if you were holding
on to your pocketbook with both hands rather
than have them on the steering wheel. Anyhow, if
you're caught while driving under the influence,
it will now cost you $450.00. In the past it was a
paltry $250.00.
That's almost enough to drive a person away
from drink. I predict it won't however.

I saw in the paper the other day where some
of the Arabs have a money problem. They are
taking it in faster than they can spend it.
For instance, Saudi Arabia is earning money
at the rate of $41.4 billion a year and has a budget
of only $31.5 billion which provides all a country
the size of Saudi Arabia can think of. There is no
such thing as a "bare bones" budget in the Arab
Here is a good place in which some
American aid can be well applied. We have
people here in our nation who are expert in
spending money. With a few of our experts
shipped overseas, we have every confidence that
the problem of the Arabs would disappear in just
a short while. They would soon enjoy a deficit
cash situation .just like all the other normal
people in the world.

A new dimension has been found for art
lovers. An artist by the name of C. G. Morehead
up in Owensboro, Ky., has taken to using peanut
butter as the base of his paints and is busily
producing genuine Moreheads with a peanut
butter flavor.
Morehead just may have come up with a
system for turning the young people off their
quest for Farrah Fawcet-Majors posters to the
serious arts a-la-Morehead. That would be a
definite breakthrough.

Council of the Assemblies of
God, with headquarters in
Marianna, announces their
annual camp meeting and Dis-
trict Council to be held July
10-15 on the camp grounds
located on Highway 90 East.
The West Florida District is
comprised of a group of 167
churches, and 385 ministers
covering the Panhandle from
the Swanee River to the Ala-
bama Georgia state lines.
The speaker for this year is
Rev. Bert Blendennen from
Beaumont, Tex. He will be
speaking nightly at 7:00 p.m.,
and also on Wednesday,
Thursday and Friday morn-
ings at 10:00 a.m.
The public is cordially in-
vited to attend.

It was predicted that 25
would die over the long holi-
day week end and numerous
others hurt in highway acci-
dents alone. Others were ex-
pected to die in holiday activi-
ties such as swimming, boat-
ing, etc.
Here in Gulf County there
were no deaths or injuries
reported. Law enforcement
officers say only a couple of
small fender bendings marred
the otherwise totally safe
highway travel.
The ambulance service had
one run, but it was on Thurs-
day before the holiday week
end officially began. Even this
run did not result in a patient.
The ambulance was alerted to
pick up the Panama City party
boat deck hand who had a
heart attack while fishing off
Port St. Joe. The deck hand
died before he could be

"It's the hurricane season",
Apalachicola Weather Station
director Fred Cramer told the
Rotary Club last Thursday.
Cramer acknowledged that
this part of Florida usually
doesn't have hurricanes until
around September, but the,
season is officially here and-
residents should check the
weather reports periodically
to keep advised on the hurri-
cane situation.
Cramer reported that there
were no hurricanes in the Gulf
or the Caribbean Sea 'Iast
year-hurricanes which eduse
concern along the Gulf coast.
He said there were only five in
the Atlantic, a slack year in
hurricane production Thileast
time the Gulf coast escaped
without a hurricane for a' full
yearwas nearly 40 years ago.
The weather bureau direc-
tor stressed the need- foi

When your vehicle parts have worn out,
you've probably, learned to head for your local
NAPA store for top quality replacements. But
what do you do when something on your vehi-
cle needs machine work?
The answer is the same. Your local NAPA
store features a machine shop that offers a
long list of machine work equal in quality to
NAPA parts.
Your NAPA machine shop can grind your
valves, turn your brake drums, repair ignition
and distributor units, rebore and rebuild
engines, press axle bearings and much more.
Top quality repair work and top quality NAPA
parts spell more miles for your car and more
savings for you. So check with your NAPA
store for both parts and machine work.

the small number of evacua-
tion routes and their vulner-
ability when high tides are
brought in by a hurricane. One
'example was the main evac-
uation route for Port St. Joe,
which has a danger point at
Cypress Creek where the road
would likely be flooded in high
hurricane water surges.
"Really a person is pretty
safe about two blocks from the
water front", Cramer said.
"The biggest reason for life
loss in hurricanes is from the
water surge at the beach front
during high water surges from
the storms. At least two blocks
back, the land is usually high
enough and the surge has
usually lost enough of its force
to reduce or eliminate the
threat from an intensive
"There is no reason for
anyone being surprised by a
hurricane these days", Cra-
mer said. "We have the triple
tracking capability of satel-
ites for discovering the storms
in their infancy, radar to track
them for distance of 200-300
miles away and the hurricane
hunter planes to get specific
data on just how dangerous a
storm can be".
