Unions to Cast Vote On Latest Offr Today

still cloudy late Wednesday afternoon, as both the company
and Papermakers and Electrical Workers unions labored.
with last minute bargaining in order to avert a shut down
from a strike Friday morning.
Friday morning at 7:00 a.m., will mark the end of the 10
day strike notice tendered to the company by the unions,on
Monday of last week. The strike notice was served on the
company due to failure to reach an agreement.
A'last minute bargaining session was held Wednesday
morning, with the company making another offer to the
unions, in an effort to stave off the strike. According to L. L.
Copenhaver, -Industrial Relations- Director of -the paper
company, the mill will begin shutting down this afternoon,
unless there is a change of mind by the bargaining unions by
the middle of the afternoon:.

According to Troy Jones, president of the Papermakers
Union yesterday afternoon, the unions will consider the latest
company offer, which he said is some different from the last
offer, the union members will begin casting their votes at
noon today on whether or not to accept or reject. Jones said
all union members will be given the opportunity to cast a
secret ballot on the latest company offering. "We plan to
have the voting completed and tallied in time to stop shut
down preparations if the vote is to accept", Jones said.
Both Jones and Copenhaver said negotiations are
continuing through the time left before the vote, with an open
line'of communications being kept between the unions and
. the company. :. -.. .
Jones said, "We gave some and the company has taken
back some of what they offered and offered something they
had not in the past. We'll just have to wait and see what

happens in the voting process."
Memories of the last strike at St. Joe Paper six years ago
Still linger in the area and have caused considerable interest

County attorney William J.
Rish told the County Commis-
sion Tuesday that it appears
as if there will be hardly any
delay at all in the change in
construction firms in the Oak
Grove Water and Sewer dis-
trict project.
It was feared two weeks
ago, when the prime contrac-
tor, Tom Newkirk walked off
the job in a dispute with his
bonding company, that it may
be as long as 90 days before
work would be resumed again.
Attorney Rish told the
Board Tuesday that the sub-
contractor, who was working
for Newkirk on the water
installation portion of the pro-
ject has expressed an interest
in finishing the complete job.

$3.64 Million Grant

Approved for City

:h Port St. Joe's Mayor, Frank
Pate received a letter Monday
morning, which will mean a
windfall of $3,643,536 to the
City treasury, possibly within
the next two to three weeks.
The Environmental Protec-
tion Agency notified the City
that their grant had been ap-
proved after nearly eight
years of effort on the part of
the City Commission to get it.
The grant, promised by
.EPA when the Wastewater
Treatment Plant was in the
planning stage, was promised
to the City then, as an incen-
tive to build the plant. After
the plant was built, at a cost of
nearly $10 million,, EPA began
to back down on their promise.
After reams of correspon-
'dence, many trips to the EPA
office in Atlanta and using up
influence points, the letter,

approving the grant was in
the mail Monday.
The grant isn't without
strings attached. Along with
the letter is a list of four
provisions the City must agree
to. Some of the provisions
have already been met by the

Getting the County Com-
mission to pay that invoiced
workman's compensation
premium, pegged at $90,918, is
getting to be like enticing a
two year old to part with a half
eaten sucker. They just don't
want to do it..
The present policy runs out
Saturday and the Commission
decided Tuesday to take these
remaining few days and stay
on the telephone trying to trim
Sthii cosit' of' the'6 coverage.
Roy Smith, with the Hannon
Agency of Port St. Joe, who
writes the policy informed the
Board of some of their past
history with the insurance. ,He
said that in fiscal '73-'74, the
county paid a premium of
$17,000 and had'15 losses,
totaling $44,200. In '74-'75, it
was $34,000 in premiums and
$26,922 in losses, plus a re-
serve of $127,000 set up to
cover a possible judgment of a
suit against the county. The
suit is still pending. No def-
inite figures were available
for the last two fiscal years,
but finance officer Jerry
Gates said claims on the
policy for the last two years
has amounted to less than
$3,000 a year.
*One of the main reasons the
Commission has held up on
payment is that they budgeted
only $52,000 to pay the work-
men's compensation policy
and the bill has come in at
$90,918. That's a sizeable dif-
ference for the tight county
budget to handle.
Finance officer Jerry Gates
says the only thing the Com-
mission can do is to take part
of the extra premium from
reserve and contingencies and
tap one of the government
funds coming into the county
for the remainder "if you get
it", he said.
The Commission put them-
selves and their insurance
agent to work trying to.get the.
premium reduced because of
their recent claim record,
until the last part of the grace
period is gone on the present
policy. If all else fails, they
will write the check and pay

Special Master Suggests 3% Pay Increase for Gulf County Teachers

The Gulf County School Board
received a recommendation this week
from the special master who heard
testimony recently from the Board and
,the Gulf County Classroom Teachers
The Board and the classroom
teachers have'been at odds in contract
negotiations since this past July, when
negotiations started on a one year work
pact. After the two parties failed to
reach an agreement on two matters,
salary and insurance, the services of
the special master, provided by the
Public Employees Relations Commis-
sion then enteredthe scene.
The teachers were asking for a

seven percent salary increase and in-
surance contributions of $11.44 on the
hospital insurance. The School Board
said they couldn't afford it.
Tuesday, .the special master sug-
gested a three percent -increase in pay
for the teachers and insurance prem-
ium payments of $11.44, half of the
policy cost for a single, person. In his'
report, the special master agreed that
the School Board didn't have the
income to pay. the higher salary
increase. He suggested that a look be
taken at the money situation later in the
year and more salary be given the
teachers if the income picture gets any
better than it now appears.

This doesn't mean that the special
master's suggestions will be followed.
Both the teacher group and the School
Board have the power to reject his
recommendations and go back to the
bargaining table.
Superintendent W.~ter Wilder told
The Star, "I don't know what will
happen to'this suggestion. The Board
hasn't seen it, and I don't think the
teacher group has seen it either. They
both have to study it and make up their
minds about acceptance or rejection".
Wilder said he felt-all parties
involved in the matter would have a full
report from the special master in their
possession in a few days and will come

to some conclusion.
The School Board was told about
the report at their regular meeting
Tuesday morning but didn't get to study
it in depth. "We just got it out of the
mail this morning", Wilder said Tues-
The Board let bids in their regular
meeting session Tuesday to Lykes
Electronics of Tampa and Grice Elec-
tronics. of Pensacola to furnish mater-
ials for a television cassette teaching
aid system to be provided all 12 grades
in Gulf County schools..
Superintendent Wilder said the
local school system has received a

$22,000 government grant to finance the
system. By picking and choosing.items
from the two bids, the Board was able
to select all the materials they will need
for a total of $21,636..
The Board also received bids on
hospital insurance for all Board em-
ployees, but the bids were tabled for
further study before awarding the
Superintendent Wilder made a
recommendation to the Board Tuesday
that one administrative position be
eliminated in the two Elementary
schools in the Port St. Joe area.
In Wilder's report, he suggested

that the two remaining supervisory
personnel in the two schools run both
school programs. These two people are.
Howard Blick, principal of Highland
View Elementary School and Mrs.
Barbara Shirley, assistant principal at:
Port St. Joe Elementary School. Harry:
Herrington, present Port St. Joe Ele-
mentary principal, is stepping into the
job of finance officer, presently held by
Roy Taylor, who is retiring after the
first of the year.
Wilder suggested that both schools
be run out of one office.
The Board didn't act on the matter
at Tuesday's meeting.

Money Well Spent

A tour through the new library
here in Port St. Joe last Thursday at
noon verified the claim by support-
ers of the new library that the
enlarged facilities would attract
more use of the services offered here
by the county and the Northwest
Regional Library.
The Rotary Club took a tour of
the new building and there were
almost as many people in the
building, using its services, as there
were Rotarians taking the tour.
If we have ever done anything
right here in Port St. Joe and Gulf
County, we think the construction of
the new library building was it.

A Layman's View



By Billy Norris
I Peter 3:15 KJV says, "But
sanctify (honor) the Lord God
in your hearts; and be ready
always to give an answer to
every man that asketh you a
reason of the hope that is in
you with meekness and fear
(respect):" (parenthesis
I am convinced that every
born-again believer should Jbe
ready to do as this scripture
says. But I am also convinced
that far too many are not
ready or able to lead an
unbeliever -to become a
Christian. The following
verses from Romans (the
Roman Road) are intended to
help a Christian "be ready."
Romans 3:23 "For all have
sinned, and come short of the
glory of God," Sin is rebellion
against God.
Romans 5:8 "But God,
commendth his love toward
us, in that, while'we were yet
sinners, Christ dies for us."
God loves everyone.
Romans 6:23 "For the
wages of sin is death; but the
gift of God is eternal life
through Jesus Christ our
Lord." Sin brings death, Jesus
is life.
Romans 10:9-10 "That is
thou shalt confeps with thy
mouth the Lord Jesus, and
shalt believe in thine heart
that God raised him from the
dead, thou shalt be saved. For
with the heart man 'blieveth
unto righteousness; and with
the mouth confession is made
unto salvation." This is the
way, the only way. Christian
"be ready."



The other week we had the, head of the
Regional Mental Health organization, which
operates the clinic here in Port St. Joe, speaking
to us here in Port St. Joe at the Rotary Club
meeting. He made the statement that all of us
have mental hang-ups at one time or another and
the trick was to recognize this fact and do what
was needed to correct it. He said one of the ways
to cure our frustrations was to kick the cat (hard
on the cat but good for the humans), take some
time off and do nothing and express our
displeasures to someone who will listen.
The speaker made a hit with the golfers in
the audience by saying one of the healthiest
things they could do is to throw their golf clubs
when they make a bad shot. I don't play golf, so
I'll have to pick out some other activity.
About that time Mark Tomlinson, who was
sitting across the table from Chauncey Costin,
laid the club secretary briefcase down on the
table and pushed it out of hisMway. The briefcase
struck a full glass of ice water iad dumped 'the
whole thing in Chauncey's lap. Chauncey jumped
up, glared at the speaker and shouted, "What do
I do now?" There was a real need for some
sincere counselling.

Do you realize that it is only two weeks until
Thanksgiving and six weeks until Christmas?

coming up, the local merchants and Jaycees are

Christmas parade here in Port St. Joe, to be held
on the first Saturday in December, Which is
December 3.
Karl Bowen, manager of Merit Finance is
the chairman of the Jaycee portion of the annual
parade. They have the responsibility of lining up
floats to be entered and the judging of who gets
the big cash prizes given away by the merchants.
Karl says he is now taking pledges from
churches, organizations and clubs which wish to
enter floats in the parade. Karl says he hopes to
have a parade equally as good as last year's,
which had probably the most floats of any
Christmas parade ever.
At any rate, Karl wants those wishing to
enter floats to get in contact with him real quick.

I guess Reubin Askew just doesn't have any
desire to go to Washington; a feeling .I can
readily identify with.
. ; ., Back during the Presidential election,
': Reubin had an opportunity to be on the ticket as
the candidate for Vice-President. He turned it
down. Last week, the rumor was that Reubin had
been approached to take Bert Lance's place as
the head of the Office of Budget Management.
Again Reubin turned. it down.
All of us who have been wondering if Reubin
really knew what he was doing are going to have
to change our minds. He knows, if he can
successfully fight the lure of Washington.

Last Monday, I again wandered into John
Blount's furniture store and was having a
conversation with the ebullient John when
Jimmy Costin wandered in, also.
Jimmy said, "John, I need some more
John answered, "I'll bring you some."
Thinking John was talking about one of his
frequent trips to Alabama, where many of the
peanuts grow, and that he would bring Jimmy
some from there, I chimed in with,'"I'll take
some, too, when you go after them."
During the middle of the afternoon, here
came John into the office, delivering a big bag of
frozen boiled peanuts and a sack of parched
Ybu can't beat service like that.

I saw in the papers where David Berkowitz,
the accused Son of Sam killer, was placed under
sedation and restraint last week after he became
"upset" over watching the soap operas.. The
director of the corrections department said
Berkowitz became hysterical after watching
about 15 minutes of soap opera on the TV.
You remember, a week ago, Berkowitz was
ruled sane by the courts and capable of standing
trial. I say this proves it. Anyone who can be
driven crazy by soap operas has to be sane.
On with the trial!

Pete Rozelle, commissioner of the National
Football League says the football field and the
game itself should be exempt from changing to
the metric system. Rozelle says the game is
based heavily on measurement and should
remain under the yards and inches system..
Come on now, Pete. What makes you think
football is any better than checkers, mumbley
peg, tossing pennies or horse shoes. All these are
played by measurement, too, and evidently
they're going to change. They have no commis-
sioner to fight for their rights. Tennis, baseball
and pole vaulting aren't putting up a holler, and
they're games of measurement. Get with it,
Pete, the world is going metric and football
should too. I can hear the referee now, shouting,
"Third down and point- nine-' ,one- four- four
meters to go".
Doesn't that sound more exciting than
"Third down and. a yard to go"?

Ball Ducats

On Sale
Tickets went on sale this
week for the- annual Rotary
Club Charity Ball, according
to James T. McNeill, this
year's chairman for the an-
,pual social event.
. McNeill said tickets are
going on sale early this year
due to the fact that the ball is
being held a week earlier than
usual. "The Florida-FSU foot-
ball game falls during our
usual time slot", McNeill said,
"and we decided to work
around the competition which
this particular ball game
would give is".
The ball will be held Satur-
day, November 26 in the
Centennial Building, with the
affair getting underway at
9:00 p.m.
McNeill said the committee
has "gone first class", this
year in the music department.
"We have secured tl~e servic-
es of the Gulf Coast Commun-
ity College stage band to
furnish our music. This is one
of the finest musical groups in
this area'.

It took the Sharks a quarter
and a half of football Friday.
night to defeat the Apalachi-
cola Sharks in their first
meeting in 11 years. The
Sharks didn't score a first
down until nearly halfway
through the third period and
seemed headed to a defeat at
the hands of their Franklin
County neighbors.
The Sharks seemed to be

just going through the motions
in the first half, as the
Apalachicola 11 put a touch-
down on the scoreboard early
in the first period. Not only did
the Apalachicola Sharks show
they could score on their Port
St. Joe cousins, they did it
twice. On the fifth play in the
second period, Ernest Frveir
threaded his' way to the goal
line on a 27 yard run, but it

was called back by a clipping
penalty against Apalachicola.
On the next play, this time
from 25 yards out, Van John-
son shrugged off the Shark
defenders and ran 25 yards to
score. The extra point attempt
met with failure, but it looked
as if the oyster city crew was
going to ppt one on the Sharks.
After the half-time rest, the
Sharks came out and received
the kick. Duane McFarland
rambled back to the 35 yard
line, but a holding penalty put,
the Sharks back on their own
20. Three downs later and they
were forced to punt.
The Sharks held the Apalach
team to four downs and they
punted to the Port St. Joe 25. A
penalty against Apalachicola
made them do it over again.
This time, the Sharks got
better field position on their
own 39.
Then they went to work and
won the football game.
A pass from Taylor to
McFarland, an eight yard run
by Dusty May and nine and 15
yard rambles by Keith Neel
and the Sharks were on the 17
yard line-o-f their foe. May
ripped off a seven yard gainer
on first down and Keith Neel,
ripped around end on the very
next play to put the Sharks
even in the scoring depart-
ment. Rick Taylor kicked the
extra point and Port St. Joe
had all it needed.
But that wasn't all.
After three downs, tihe Apa-
lachicola team had to punt
again. McFarland fielded the
punt back on his own 30 and
picked up a wall' of blockers,
running all the way back to the
Apalach 37.
SNeel then came through the
middle for nine, Taylor was
sacked for a three yard loss

and Neel gave the Sharks a
first down on the 22 with a 10
yard gainer. Then Neel
brought the fans to their feet
with probably the best run
local fans have seen this year
when he skirted the far side of
the field, spinning out of three
tackles and crossing the goal
line to score. Taylor's kick for
the extra point was good but
was nullified by a penalty. A
try. for two points failed,
leaving the Sharks in the lead,
13-6 with 11:25 left in the.
The Shark defense really
came alive then and the
Apalachicola team couldn't
move. About mid-way in the
last period, the defense'jarred .
Ernest Fryer loose from the
ball and Carlton Wilkerson
covered it for Port St. Joe on
the Apalach 46 yard line.
Four plays later, Neel ran
from the Apalach 27 to score,
but Mike Cassani was over-
eager and clipped an oyster-
man. The Sharks had the ball
on the 23 after the penalty was
marked off.
Taylor passed to McFarland
for eight yards, May came up
the middle for 12 and, with 45
seconds left in the game, Neel
took his third touchdown for
the night over from three
yards out. Taylor kicked the
extra point and the Sharks
went home with a satisfying
20-6 win.
