Bank Charter Is Denied


The office of State Compt-
troller Gerald Lewis this week
turned down an application of
a group of area businessmen
to.f6rm a second banking
house here in Port St. Joe.
Lewis's office denied a char-
4 tter to the proposed Bank of


Port St. Joe on the grounds
that the proposed officers did
not fully comply with their
requirements to have a char-
ter granted. The group had
applied for a charter to oper-
ate a state bank here in Port
St. Joe.


Paper Mill Shutting

SDown for Two Weeks


St. Joe Paper Company
will shut down its mill
operations here Saturday
morning for a two week
period, according to Fer-
rell Allen, Jr., assistant
production manager.

Alien said the shut-down
is necessary because of
some repairs which need to
be made to a boiler which is
necessary to the mill's


operations. Allen said an-
other reason making the
shut-down necessary is a
lack of box cars with which
to ship out the finished
product. Allen said the cars
are hard to obtain at this
particular time, causing a
pile-up of finished orders in
the company's warehouse.
Allen said the mill would
resume operations in two
weeks.


The charter was denied
principally on two counts.
First, Lewis felt the proposed
capital of $650,000 was insuffl-
cient, but recognized the fact
that this could be remedied by
the proposed chartering
group. The charter was also
denied on the grounds that the
Department felt the require-
ment of a reasonable chance
for success had not and could
not be met due to the present
economic conditions in Gulf
County, caused chiefly by the
lack of population growth over
the past 20 years and the
negligible increase in deposits
and 'loans 'over the same
period of time.
The Comptroller felt that
the proposed officers and di-
rectors had sufficient qualifi-
cations as businessmen and
bankers. The proposed name
for the bank was not confusing
since no other banks in this

Rep. Billy Joe Rish and Sen. Pat

pending legislation here last Thursday
afternoon. -Star photo


Report 71 Due Paving


Discuss Legislation


Representative Billy Joe Rish and
State Senator Pat Thomas discussed :
pending legislation with a group of
interested citizens in the Gulf County
Courthouse last Thursday afternoon.
The most interest seemed to be stirred
locally by members of the Sportsmei's
SClub who wanted the Game and Fresh
Water Fish Commission to return control
of the Edward Ball Game Reserve back to
their care. Other items under discussion
were the proposed fresh-salt water fishing
line being considered at the Highland View
bridge, summer-time oystering in the
county, pay increases for local public.
officials and a concern for granting
building variances in controlled areas
without a public notice of some kind.
Representative Rish started the meet-
ing off by giving an overview of local
legislation he would propose in the session
which started Tuesday of this week.
RisiH reported he had been notified by,
the Department of Transportation that
State Road 71 would be repaved from
Wewahitchka to the county line within 90
days, then from Cypress Creek to- Wewa-
hitchka later in the year. He said that
Swithip a year, the road would be resurfac-
ed all the way to Marianna.
Rish reported that he would file local
legislation to establish a special fire
district for the Overstreet area. The bill
would allow for up to a half mill tax levy on
property affected in the area, including
homesteads. "The bill will become law
only if the people affected in the proposed
district approve of it", Rish said.
The veteran Representative also said
he would introduce a local bill removing
the limitation on indebtedness which can
be incurred by revenue certificate issues
of the Port St. Joe Port Authority. "Their
limits are now $3% million which were
established many years ago. You can't
build much of a port forthat kind of money
these days", Rish observed. He said the
bill would provide that any revenue
certificate issue would be repayable from
revenues derived from the operation of a
future port. Rish said.the bill was
necessary if there is ever to be any port
development here.
Rish said he would file a bill allowing a
private oyster bar to remain open during
the summer months in Gulf Countysuch as
now is the case in Franklin County. "The


bar open in the summer would remain
closed during the regular oyster season",
Rish noted.
Senator Pat Thomas said he saw no
new taxes from the coming session. "It's
an election year and last year's new taxes
on liquor and cigarettes are bringing in
$129 million plus the fact that natural
growth is giving Us $200 million more in
taxes which will more than pay, for any
new pay raises", Thomas said.
Rish said the Legislature will try to
head off any proposed increase in hunting
and fishing licenses in the state.
Senator Thomas warned those present
that road work in small counties will get
harder and harder to get. "All of the small
counties are banding together to try and
salvage some of their needed road work
but I don't know how successful we will be.
Opposition from larger counties is getting
tougher and tougher", Thomas said.
Thomas also reported that he has
pre-filed a bill to ease off on stiff
requirements against industry which is
discouraging new firms from moving to
Floiida. "It will also' give local counties
the option of giving some sort of- tax,
incentive for new industry in order for us
to compete with Georgia and Alabama
which now have this option", he said..
Mrs. Eda Ruth Taylor and Mrs. Jane
Johnson asked whether or not it was now
required that a public notice be given for
any.waiver in set-back line construction
allowed. They were specific about con-
struction now going on and planned for the
St. Beach area on the water side of the
highway. "We see 'For Sale' signs going
up every day in this area in Yon's
addition", they said, "and the people out
there are just sick over it". Rish said, "I
don't know if it is the law to give prior
notice or not, but if it isn't I'm going to try
and make it the law".
Mrs. Dessie Lee Parker asked the law-
makers about the probability of a bill
passing which would allow a pay increase
for Elections Supervisors in smaller
counties. Both Rish and Thomas said that
if one local public office was granted a pay
increase, then all would get it. Clerk
George Y. Core noted "In some counties,
employees in the Clerk's offices are
making more than the constitutional
officer, since the pay rate must be made
attractive to hire competent help but the
officer's salary is set by law";

Bank Embezzlement


John WV. O'Rourke, spe-
cial agent in charge of the
Jacksonville Division of the
Federal Bureau of Investi-
gation and Roy Lister,
President, Wewahitchka
State Bank, confirmed this
week that an investigation
is being conducted into an
alleged embezzlement of
funds from the bank. The
amount of funds involved
and the identities of the
persons responsible were
not disclosed.
The deposits of the We-
wahitchka State Bank are

The fire was brought under
control in mid afternoon but
local officials are still having
problems with it. Sheriff Ken
Murphy said that patches of
muck in the burn area are still
smouldering and at night
cause a driving hazard along
the highway. "We have to
block off the road and lead
motorists through the smoke
at night because it gets so
heavy and lays right down on

o to the Editor


Will Testing of Teachers Solve Anything?


Dear Mr. Ramsey:
In recent months, much has
been said and printed about
the issue of testing teachers.
Some public officials would
lead the public to believe that
incompetent teachers are to
blame for our educational ills.
FTP-NEA, Florida's largest
teachers' organization, would
like you to consider the follow-
ing facts and then decide if
testing teachers will solve
anything:
colleges of Education
train teachers, not teachers;
the Florida Department
of Education certifies
teachers, n6t teachers;
-, school administrators
hire teachers and place them
in our schools,i not teachers,
school principals etvu'-'
ate'teachers regarding their
competency to teach, not
teachers;
school boards decide on
school curriculum, not
teachers;
In other words, teachers,
the practicing professionals in
the classroom, have absolute-
ly no control over their own
profession. Yet, those who do
have control are quick to point
the- finger of blame at
teachers. FTP-NEA feels that


Affect of

Speed On

Our Lives
The Florida Highway Patrol
has appealed to drivers to
consider the effect of speed on
their daily lives-- speed at
getting a job done, hurrying
through meals, speedy trips to
the supermarket or shopping
center.
Patrol Director Colonel El-
drige Beach said, "Sometimes
we actually forget the purpose
of hurrying, but we go speed-
ing along anyway, purely
from habit. When driving a
car sixty-five miles an hour
for fifty. miles on a highway
and the designated speed is
fifty-five, you save nine whole
minutes-- but what do you do
with them? The answer most
of the time is nothing."
"In the meantime, you have
broken the law, increased the
chances of having an accident
or getting arrested and defi-
nitely increased the severity
of any accident you might
have."
"By passing cars which are
traveling at the legal maxi-
mum speed," continued the
Patrol director, "You have
taken unnecessary risks and
endangered others. Is it worth
it? Common sense and the law
say 'no'. I hope you agree."
In closing Colonel Beach
reminds motorists that there
is no single "safe speed" for
all situations. "your best pro-
tection is your good judge-
ment and constant awareness
of the dangers of driving.
When we double the speed of
our car and hit something, we
will hit four times, not twice,
as hard. If we triple it, we will
hit nine times as hard. Please,
slow down, live and let live,"
Beach said.


just as doctors and attorneys
control their professions, so
should teachers.. We will be
supporting legislation to
create a Professional Stand-


ards and Licensure Board to
govern our profession. We
need your support because
self-governance and higher
standards, not testing


teachers, will help us improve
the educational system for our
students.

Chauncey Says, "It Has Been A Pleasure"


TO THE GOOD PEOPLE OF
PORT SAINT JOE AND
VICINITY:
For the past 25 years it has
been my privilege and
pleasure serving you as your
postmaster. During that time
I have seen many changes in
the Postal Service. In Port.
Saint Joe we have gone from a


Second Class post office to a
First Class post office and the
only way that patrons could
receive mail was either
through post office boxes or
general delivery, then came
city delivery and mail was
delivered to the door of those
who desired it.
During the same 25 years,


the post office moved into a
larger and more adequate
building affording room for
operating and comfort for
employees.
It has been a most reward-
ing 25 years for me and I wish
to take this method to thank
all of the employees of this.
office who have contributed so


much over the years to give
good mail service to our
patrons, and I also want to
express my deep gratitude to
the patrons of this office for
making my 25 years so pleas-
ant and rewarding.
It has been my pleasure and
.I thank all of you.
Chauncey L. Costin


I was minding my own business the other
day, sitting at a type setter, setting type for an
intricate printing job, concentrating to the
fullest, when all of a sudden, a shrill Phre-e-e-t!
split my only good ear drum. One has already
been diagnosed as needing some attention and
this shrill sound badly dented the good one.
I turned around in my chair and there was
four-year-old grandson, Bill, with a grin spread
all over his face and a referee's whistle hung
about his neck on a string.
Bill was here at the office rather than in
kindergarten, because he was feeling bad when
the time came to go to school Friday morning.
Just about the time kindergarten let out, he
began to perk up.
At noon, his parents had taken him with
them by the Athletic House to look at something
they were planning to buy. Bill saw the whistle
hanging on the wall and his eyes lit up like a
spotlight. Randall Brady, still feeling like Santa
Claus this long after Christmas gave Bill the
whistle.
All afternoon long Friday, he tried out that
stinking whistle.
What did I ever do to you, Randall?

I couldn't stand it any longer.
Saturday afternoon, we slipped off to Lake
Wimico to try out the reports that the bass were
biting fast and furious.
If a person wanted to buy a boat and couldn't
make up his mind what kind he wanted to buy, he
could save himself a lot of time shopping the
different marinas by just going to Lake Wimico
when the bass are supposed to be biting. Not only
is the selection large enough for anyone to see
them all, but the numbers are great. If a person
had boat trouble on Lake Wimico Saturday, he
could walk out from one end of the lake to the
other without getting his feet wet across the
boats.
There's nothing quite like a bright spring
day, a good boat, a nice tree top leaning over a
deep pool of water, a limber cane pole and a bite
now and then. That's sheer pleasure... even for
someone who might not like fishing.

At times we all have cast aspersions at our
police department and our Sheriff and his
deputies.
One of the favorite gripes of people is, "If
you want a policeman or a Deputy, quick, don't


bother to call the police station or the Sheriff's
office; call the coffee shop". Or, you can also
frequently hear, "Those policemen don't do
anything but ride around in those air conditioned
cars. If you want one, you can never find him".
I have a testimonial to make.
Thursday afternoon, a man snatched a purse
from a lady at the Gulf Service Station, jumped
in a pick-up and was off. The police were called
and before the man could get to the overpass,
they were on his tail and had him stopped before
he reached the Highland View bridge.
That's fast work, no matter what anyone
says.
Then, later in the day, Steve Macomber was
in the office telling us of a malfunction of the
burglar alarm in the Credit Union office. He said
the alarm went off accidentally and in less than
two minutes, the police came pouring through
the front door.
I don't know if anyone else in town feels
more secure with the service our law enforce-
ment offers them, but I'm sure the people around
at the St. Joe Papermakers Credit Union and the
lady who owned that purse feel that they are
strictly on the job, ready to answer when they
are needed.
I'm ashamed to say that at times, I have felt
as some of the other critics of the law
enforcement agencies have felt. It's comforting
to know they are Johnny-on-the-spot when they
are needed.

Church members insist on their pastors
conducting a Good Friday service, but there
weren't very many of them in attendance Friday
of last week.

I understand there is going to be at least one
and possibly two more exploratory oil wells
drilled here in Gulf County in the very near
future; possibly this summer.
This makes at least six attempts made in
'this small county in the past three years.
Could it be the signs have been good from
past attempts? It doesn't seem to us the oil
companies would continue to drill expensive
holes in the ground unless there was some good
reason.
One fellow told me the other day with his
expectation showing, "It'd be terrible if they
struck oil on my property and messed up my
pasture with that old oil."
I'm sure he's worried about it.

in subdivisions while this road
remains closed".
Road Commissioner Bill.
Branch told Raffield that wa-
ter conditions on the road had
caused it to be closed and
remain closed. "The road will
be re-opened and repaired
either Wednesday or Thurs-
day of this week", Branch
said. "It is on our agenda for
those days, provided it doesn't
rain. Our equipment is in the
vicinity and the job will be
done".
Raffield said he was so
concerned over the condition
of the road because other
roads leading off the road in
question had been closed to
the public in past years and he
didn't want to see this road
meet the same fate. He claim-
ed that the closed roads were
county roads and were closed
without public hearings.
Cjerk George Y. Core said
the county owned only the
road in question in this area,
and that they didn't own that
one until 1950 when the right of
way was deeded to the county.
The Commission set Raf-
field's mind at ease by passing
a policy to.prohibit closing any
road until a public hearing is
held.
RETURNSMONEY
Gulf County Sheriff Ken
Murphy presented the Com-
mission with a check for
$1,040.00 which he said was
confiscated money from the
big marijuana arrest made
last year here in the county.
Murphy also asked for the
county to erect signs at the
county beaches where vehicle
traffic is prohibited stating
this fact. "We can't make
arrests in the areas unless
they are posted", he said.
OTHER BUSINESS
In other items of business,
the Commission:
-Gave permission and a
pledge of cooperation to the


Garden Club to landscape the

,Wetappo


Celebrate
: Birthday celebrations are
exciting and Girl Scouts of
Wetappo Neighborhood know
how to give rather than re-
ceive on their special day.
:ulf County Girl Scouts were
involved in a seven day birth-
'ay party celebrating 66 years
Sf scouting in America. Each
.Oay had a theme with special
events planned. Bulletin
boards were decorated,
posters displayed, and craft
items placed in downtown
Stores
SSunday, March 12, found
girls participating in church
services. Leaflets were hand-
:d out, special services by
Scouts were enjoyed, and girls
'expressed their appreciation
to churches offering their
'buildings as troop meeting
sites. Monday was Home Day
and girls prepared meals, led
family members in special
projects and games, and
helped with household chores.
Tuesday, Citizenship Day,
.was celebrated with Flag
Ceremonies, discussions of
local laws, and service pro-
jects. Health and Safety was
discussed on Wednesday and
medicine cabinets were
cleaned or restocked. On
Thursday, International
-Friendship Day, games from
other countries were taught to
friends and family. Arts and
Crafts Day was enjoyed with
painting, creating, and
- making Easter favors.
SSaturday, Out of Doors Day
was the most exciting day of
Girl Scout Week with a day of
sharing at the Dead Lakes
Recreation Park. The ranger
d opened the activities with a
nature trail hike. Girls and
leaders were introduced to
nature by an informative and
interesting tour guide. New
phrases, such as loblolly pine,
life-giving dead tree, seed-
lings, ana recycled water
made the Scouts more aware
f the value of the park. An
amusing insight was the way
forestry workers watch the
squirrels to know when pine
cones are ready for harvest-
Sig. Walking the trail became
an exercise for the eyes as the
itoops became aware of tiny
spring violets which were on
S the trails, around the tables,
and near the parking area.
The girls were reminded to
enjoy them with their eyes and
leave them for the hikers to
see and smell.
.A Flag Ceremony, led by Jr.
Triop 118, brought the group
t' o ether for the lunch hour.
gBlssing of the food was led by
Troops 76 and 310. Sharing and
games began with "One Little
Elephant" followed by games
from all troops. A require-
ment for all games was to
choose a girl you did not know.
this gave the Scouts a chance
tb "make new friends", and
sbare with their Sister Scouts.
While the girls were cheer-
ing slow-racing leaders and
leet-footed friends, the Good
Wizard from Jr. Troop 245
called individual troops to a

Birthday
Wide Game. Trail signs and
shiny coins led the girls to a
treasure chest guarded by a
ferocious dragon. After a
wave from the wizard's magic
wand the dragon fell asleep,
and scouts stealthily creeped
away with their loot from the
chest.
A color guard closed the
events with the Retiring of the
Colors. After many last
minute goodbyes and searches
for misplaced items, girls
from troops 76, 118, 305, 317,
245, and 310 left for home. As
the dust settled and stillness
reclaimed the park all leaders
were hoping that all the girls
left was footprints, and only
memories carried away.
Leaders and troops wish to
express their appreciation to
mothers providing taxi
service and a special thank
you to the Wewahitchka
Brownies for hosting the Out,

Rev. Odum

Speaks to

Rotary
Rev. J. C. Odum, pastor of
the Long Avenue Baptist
Church, took a look at the
significant things which hap-
pened after the crucifixion in
'speaking to the Rotary Club
last Thursday.
Rev. Odum called the atten-
tion of the Rotarians to the
pitiful sights which were pres-
ent during and after the
crucifixion. He recalled the
futility of the Romans placing
a guard at the tomb of Jesus
and asked, "What authority
did the\Roman Empire have to
guard the tomb in order to
keep God from doing what
God was about to do? How did
they think they could stop
Him?"
He pointed to the resurrec-
tion as being the most distinc-
tive move of the Christian
religion. He said the resurrec-
tion means the affirmation,
the declaration and the con-
firmation of the plan of God.
The resurrection affirms the
diety of Jesus Christ, declares
our justification by His sacri-
fice and confirms our immor-
tality by assuring us that we
will also be raised from the
grave.
