In the annual re-organization of the Board,
Commissioner Billy Branch was named
chairman of the Board for the year with
newly-installed Doug Birmingham tapped as
vice-chairman. Both will serve in this
capacity for a one year period.
The two new Commissioners were immed-
iately faced with two knotty problems, which
have taxed the Commission for the past
month or two.
First, the recent squabble over. whether or
not to purchase a new bulldozer was
resurrected, again amid controversy. At the
last meeting, the Board had received bids for
the second time to purchase a new bulldozer,,
. but decided in a three to one vote to repair the
' present 20-year-old machine, to the tune of
about $10,000 and continue to use it. Tuesday
night, the Commission reversed itself and
decided again, to call for, bids for a new
machine, trading in the old one.
At the last meeting, it was decided to.begin
immediate repairs on the old machine.'

During the past two weeks, repairs had been
ordered stopped on the dozer and this stirred
the ire of Commissioner Leo Kennedy.
Kennedy hit the floor, with, "Someone is
dealing out of the sunshine. One Commission-
er went to Lloyd (Road Superintendent) and
told him riot to proceed with repairs to the old
tractor. Now I hear we're going to buy a new
Chairman James Gortman said he stopped
the work since he had decided to change his
vote and-go for purchase of a new machine.
Commissioner Billy Branch 'said .he had
talked with Gortman and he, too,,was in favor
of discarding the old machine.
,Kennedy still wasn't satisfied, stating the
ole machine would be in good shape if it was
repaired. Kennedy was out-voted, however,
with the other four Commissioners agreeing
to call for new bids on the tractor with the old
one to be traded in
Another knotty problem for the new
Commissioners Was. what to do about the
persistent efforts of residents from Cypress
Avenue here .in Port St. Joe, to get their
two-block street paved.
Gus Griffin argued with the board that the
street was a main artery into the Port St. Joe
Elementary' School, "with about 500 cars"

Santa C omig tfor

Annual Visit. Sat.

Jaycee Christmas parade
chairman Boyd Pickett has
said Saturday's big annual
parade to welcome Santa'
Claus to Port St. Joe will have
a large number of entries for
what he describes as one of the
better Christmas parades to
be presented here. Pickett
reported this week that sever-
al float 'entries have already
signed up and "We always get
several last minute entries
just as we are getting ready to
lay out the parade".
Santa will be welcomed in
the traditional parade begin-
ning at 10:30 with a long line of
floats, bands, decorated cars,
marching groups and hordes
, of youngsters of all ages lining
V the sidewalks on Reid Avenue.
The big event is sponsored
annually in a joint venture of
the Jaycees and the mer-
chant's Association. It tradi-
f4 tionally opens the Christmas
shopping season here in Port
St. Joe.
The City street crews have
been busy late this week
getting up the street decora-
tions in preparation for Satur-
day's big event.
Santa Claus will bring up the
rear of the big parade, riding
onithe City's fire truck, tossing
out candy to the children along

the street. Following the par-
ade, the awards will be an-
nounced for the winning
The parade will take its
usual route north on Reid
Avenue to First Street, then
down Highway 98 back to Fifth
Street where judging of the
eligible floats will take place
and prizes awarded.
Cash prizes are awarded to
the top three floats entered by
non-profit organizations.
Floats of merchants and in-
dustry are not eligible for the
cash prizes.
The Jaycees will be march-
ing in the parade carrying an
out-stretched blanket to catch
change tossed by the bystand-
ers. The money collected from
this activity each year is spent
to bring Christmas to under-
priviledged children in the
county. The Jaycees take the
children on a shopping tour
and give them a ' Christmas
party with the funds collected.
Merchants in Port St. Joe
are ushering in the Christmas
season with a big pre-Christ-
mas sale which begins today
and climaxes Saturday with
the entry of Santa Claus onto

the festive scene. The mer-
chants are putting forth some
of their savings in advertise-
ments in this week's issue of
The Star.
In. addition to the big sale,
the merchants have arranged
for free parking throughout
the remainder of the Christ-
mas buying season. The City
of Port St. Joe has hooded the
parking meters, and they will
remain hooded through
Christmas eve.

Study to

Set Flood

The Federal Insurance Ad-
ministration has executed a
contract to conduct a flood
insurance study for the Port
St. Joe area. It. is anticipated
this work will be completed,
within the next 18 months.
Federal Insurance Adminis-
tration representatives met
with community -officials -in
March of this year to-discuss
the nature and purpose of the
proposed study. The study will
develop technical information
needed to establish a safe
elevation from past flood ex-
perience. This will provide the
bases for, management of the
area's flood insurance pro-
gram, primarily establishing
rates and setting building
elevation requirements.
Residents of the area are
being asked to bring any
information, they have of flood
experience in the area to the
office of the Clerk of the Court,
George Y. Core in the Court-
house. This information will,
be used by the contractors in
helping to determine what the
flood prone areas are.

Firm Hired Monday Night

Port Study ]

The Port Authority agreed to terms with a consortium of
three engineering firms Monday evening to do the feasibility
study for a new port to be located at the confluence of the Gulf
County Canal and St. Joseph Bay. Fredric R. Harris, Colony,
and Russell and Axon combined their firms to offer the best
terms and low bid to the Port Authority to do the study work.
The conglomerate came. up with a firm offer of $29,500
Monday night, after giving a tentative offer of $31,500' in their
initial presentation two weeks ago.
David Scott, representing the three firms, told the Port
Authority menibers, and members of'the port advisory board
that they would begin work immediately and would complete
the study within 60 days. Although the final legal contract has
not yet been drawn or signed by either the Port Authority or
the study firm, they have agreed in the principal of the scope
of work to be done. Attorneys for' the engineers, the Port
Authority and Apalachee Planning Council will work up the
legal part of the contract this week with the final signing
scheduled to take place either Thursday or Friday of this
Apalachee Planning Council is acting as the Port
Authority's advisor and study manager in, the project.
Apalachee has agreed to take on this responsibility since the
Port Authority has no hired clerical personnel nor do they
have an income with which to hire such people. The money to
pay for the study was secured from Coastal Plains, a
government agency, by Apalachee Planning to pay for the
Scott told the Port Authority members the study they will
do for the agreed price will provide infchmation enough for

Kicked off
Farmers' Home Administration, should they get into the:
construction finance picture. He pointed a more detailed:
study would be needed, costing more money, should the
financing go to the bond market on Wall Street in New York.
Scott said, "I feel that with the state's new attitude toward
economic growth, they may be persuaded to pay for this
in-depth report. We will immediately approach the leaders of
the House and Senate with this idea."
George Tapper, chairman of the Port Authority
remarked, "We've already, made overtures _in this .direc-
tion. "
Involved in the study will be contact with potential
shippers by water transport to see if they would use the port
if the facilities were available and if they would put up some
of the construction money to be repaid by bonding. Tapper
remarked, "If they agree to put up their money to help with
the financing, you can be sure they will use the port to get
their money back."
After the feasibility is completed, and provided the
report is favorable for use of a facility here, the next step
would be to acquire the money for design and construction
and get actual work underway.
There has been no indication as to how much port
facilities built here would cost, but on the agreement
presented by the engineers, there is a paragraph at the
bottom which says: "fees for design services and services
during construction hereby'affixed at 4 percent andc2 percent
respectively, providing the construction value is in excess of
From this information, it would appear that a port for
Port St. Joe will cost at least $30 million.

Gulf County recorded no
traffic fatalities during the
recent Thanksgiving holiday
'period, but did record two
highway accidents.
The first of the two acci-
dents happened last Friday
afternoon on the Dixie Belle
curve on Highway 98, east of
the City.
Roy L. Causey, about 10
years of age, son of Mr. and
Mrs. Roy Causey, was riding

There is nothing quite like a dedicated man.
Wayne Nelson of 1306 Garrison Avenue is one of-
these dedicated men - dedicated to his week endV'
responsibilities with the National Guard and dedicated
to his hobby of keeping fit by running.
Recently he demonstrated both of his dedications
when it came his week end to go to drill in Apalachicola
on Sunday. Wayne arose from his bed at 3:00 a.m. on
November 18 and took off for Apalachicola - running.
Nelson ran the 22 miles from his home to the
Apalachicola National Guard Armory in three hours and
15 minutes and arrived in time for his drill.
Not only is this dedication, but it was also Wayne's
birthday. He was 39 years of age on November 18, and he
gave himself a present of the run to Apalachicola. Not
only is he dedicated, he also received the most unusual
birthday present of the year.
He rode back home.

Port Planning Is Off

and Running

The Port planning is off and
.running, after action taken Monday
'night here in Port St. Joe.
For 40 years, people who had the
.future of this town at heart' have
been saying that all we need is a
4leep water port to handle water
transportation through our natural
*deep water harbor to make our town
3)ecome more stable from an econ-
Zomic viewpoint.
t Of course it is necessary to have
Something to ship through a port

TiKoney; a lot of money, and people
:who have it, frown on building ports
with it and 'letting them sit there
Monday's action by the Port
Authority resulted in the hiring of a
firm to do a feasibility study for a
port installation here. A feasibility
study is a high-faluting way of
saying, "can we make a buck with
it?" We think the answer will be

"l3441 PV- 34

Ironically, where the port has
been slow in developing here, to
bring economic activity to the
waterfront, present possibilities for
growth if the port is built are
growing every day. The new high-
rise bridge across the Gulf County
Canal depends on the port. Whether
or not we get the proposed Florida
Power generating plant for this area
depends partially upon construction
of the port. Location of the Gulf
Coast seafood processing complex
here depends to a great extent on the
port. Economic developers interest-
ed in this area, have their interest
built primarily on the port.
It has been almost a foregone
conclusion that the feasibility study
would be favorable once it gets
underway. Now, it is underway, and
through the constant efforts of
people like George Tapper and the
Port Authority members, we should
begin to see progress here in the best
part of Florida.


It's that time of year again,
when the mood here in Port St. Joe
begins to deal with Christmas and
Christmas gift buying. The end of
the Thanksgiving holidays and the
advent of the annual Christmas
parade on that Saturday following
Thanksgiving week normally opens
the Christmas season with us.

The opening of the Christmas
season also heralds in that time of
year when we ordinarily take a few
inches ere on this page to urge you"'
to try Port St. Joe first with your
Christmas shopping this year. It
only makes sense to trade with your
friends and neighbors because it is
sohandy to come back to them in
cae anything goes wrong with your
purchase. It's also easier to talk to
an understanding friend if you

r. Joe First

happen to over-buy as some of us do
at Christmas time.
We think you can get just as
good a deal on the merchandise
stocked here in Port St. Joe as you
can get on comparable or the same
merchandise in some other com-
munity. You will never know that,
however, unless you try to buy here
in Port St. Joe first.
We know there are certain items
you cannot buy in Port St. Joe. In
this case, nobody can feel hard at
you about going out of toWn to make
your purchase.
We feel it is your civic duty and
our civic duty to at least try to buy in
Port St. Joe first. If you can't get the
price or the merchandise, nobody
can say you didn't try. That you try
is all we or your local merchants

Advisory Councils In Each School

Title I Program In Full Swing In Gulf County

The Title I program of the
Elementary and Secondary
Education Act is currently in
full swing in the Gulf County
school system. This year
marks the 14th straight year
Gulf County has participated
in this federally funded pro-
gram, beginning with the
founding of the program in
1965. ESEA, Title I was. the
first and most important fede-
ral program to recognize that
educationally disadvantaged
students need extra help to do
well in school.
Title I provides local school
boards with additional money .
to provide services "over and
above" what all children in
the school system receive as
part of the basic educational.,
program to help meet 'the
needs of those .studerits who
are having problems in the
regular program. These extra
services may take the form of
special teachers and aides,
individualized instructional
supplies, materials, and
equipment, and special par-
ental and community involve-
'ment programs.
In order to be eligible to
receive Title I services, a
school must have a certain
percentage of low income
students attending that school.
Once a school has been select-
ed to participate in the Title I
program, any student whose
test results from the county-
wide testing program are
below a certain point is eligi-
ble to participate in the Title I

IS MY FACE red from embarrassment.
Last week, I made a concentrated effort to
get the jump on the County Commission and
print on the front page where they had sworn in
new Commissioners James Tankersley and
Doug Birmingham. I could do this last week
because we printed the paper a day early and
happened to go to press on Tuesday afternoon.
After the paper was out and distributed, I
went to the Courthouse and. sat outside in the
dark, intending to go to the meeting I had just
reported on the front page.
It rolled around to 7:00 p.m., and the
Courthouse was still dark. I thought my watch
was a few minutes fast and somebody rolled up
behind my car in another and asked, "Are you
waiting for someone?". "I'm waiting for the
Commission meeting to start", I answered. He
asked, "What days do they meet?" I replied,.
"The second and fourth Tuesday's". "This is the
third Tuesday", my conversationalist said.
That meant I was beginning to be late to'
attend the City Commission, where I was
supposed to be at 8:00 p.m.

he didn't know who he was talking to, since I was

office until last night.

By: Wesley R. Ramsey-

"God's Country" needed a little rain when
were up there and even a few natives of that
most southern of states were beginning to
wonder if it were truly "God's Country". They
needed a shower and it seemed as if God was
determined they were not going to get it.
They got it Monday, just like we did. God just
wanted -to get their attention a little bit.

ONE THING we noticed on our trip to
Georgia was that the highway patrols in the two
states are apparently getting down to business
with this 55 miles per hour speed limit.
Evidently, it is working in helping to prevent
traffic deaths, too, since Florida failed to
produce the traffic death toll predicted for the
holiday and Georgia was bragging that they, too,
were getting by easy.
Even when we hit Interstate 75, which is
normally the "Indianapolis Speedway" of the
Chicago-to-Miami crowd, traffic was slowed
down to a maximum of 60 miles per hour. We hit
the Interstate at about dusk and held our speed
between 55 and 60 all the way and very few cars
passed us. We were right in the flow of traffic.
I'm sure glad we were, since the traffic was
virtually bumper to bumper in all the lanes
headed in both directions. There was a solid line
of headlights facing us from Cordele to near
Macon. With the heavy traffic which we
experienced, the normal break-neck speed of 1-75
drivers would have given me a stroke before I
could find an exit to get off.

IN OUR ROUTE we normally travel on
Highway 90 from Grand Ridge to about five
miles east of Chattahoochee and during a
holiday, you usually couldn't move that traffic
with a bulldozer.
I-10 is now open all the way across the state
and Highway 90 has possibly less traffic on it now
than Highway 98 has. I would equate 90's traffic
more to that found on 71. 1-10 has taken the

I HOPE all of you will be in downtown Port
St. Joe Saturday morning to watch the annual

here in our town. Old Santa will be there to see'
you, so don't disappoint him.

Stiles Brown Named to Phil Crane'S

Stiles Brown of Port St. Joe to

Board in his campaign for the
Brown will be leaving for a
conference with Crane ;in
Washington, D.C. during the
week of December 11.
To quote Crane from his
letter appointing Brown to his
National Advisory Board; "I
believe that in 1980 we can
form a new and great coalition
in, American politics, one as
inclusive and as enduring as
the new deal coalition. If we
can offer a reasonable, intelli-
gent, and imaginative choice
to the people.".
"The time has come. to
shatter the artificial barriers

of voters from the republican
party. My own feeling is that
1980 is the year that the
republicans can succeed."
"The first step in making it
succeed is to recognize that
the similarities in basic values
between republican conserva-
tives and. republican moder-
ates, and among labor, black
Americans, the elderly,'south-
erners, the Jewish commu-'
nity, and other democratic
constituencies, are far strong-.
er and far more persuasive
than the differences."
"The challenge, as I see it,
is to reach out to these groups,
to make them see and under-
stand where they agree, and to
include them together in a
republican party. I am, confi-
dent that this new coalition
can be forged."
That .then, is the task to

Elegant but easy. That's the kind of meal that comes to
mind when extra special people come to dinner. Why not cele-
brate friendships with Shrimp De Jonghe? It's tasty, quick to
prepare and leaves plenty of time for enjoying the evening.
This recipe for the popular seafood entree turns a gourmet
repast into a quick three-stepsri mix-bake-serve. Developed by
the Kraft Kitchens, it takes only minutes to make oven-ready
and has you waltzing out of the kitchen in no time.
A welcomed step-saver in this delicious fish dish is liquid
margarine. It eliminates the need for melting - no extra pans
to wash, no fuss. Simply mix the shrimp and crumb combina-
tion; bake and serve buffet style, perhaps with a tossed salad
and hot rolls. It's an elegant evening meal that's ready on a
moment's notice and yet remembered for a long time to come.

.had just about gotten the U.S
Corps of Engineers and the
:various state agencies to
ajgreb to restore 'Pelican Is
land just off-shore from the
City of Port St. Joe.
For many years prior to its
destruction, this island was
noted for the fact that many
.pelicans nested on the island
and raised their young there.
:- Rish said, "This is one
*project that we can probably
'get all the conservationists
and ecologists together on as I
"know of no-one who opposes it.
':The island will be established
with spoil from routine main-

through our port, so it will be
_.economically feasible to do
'the project."

Crack Down

On Night

Since October 22, wildlife
officers of the Florida Game
and Fresh Water Fish Com-
mission have made 17 arrests
for the unlawful hunting of
deer at night in north Florida.
Arrests have been made in
Santa Rosa, Escambia, Bay,
Gadsden, Calhoun and Wakul-
la Counties. Among the items
seized as evidence were eight
vehicles, 13 shotguns and
rifles, six spotlights and two
Night hunting is the practice
of shining deer at night with a
spotlight and then shooting
them. Deer are easily killed in
this, manner and an entire
deer herd can be destroyed.
According to Major Tom
Garrison, "this is not the
hunter out at night, but an
outlaw element who will not
abide by the law."
Those hunting deer at night
face stiff penalties when ap-
prehended. Violators may be
fined up to $1000, sentenced to
one year in jail as well as
forfeit vehicles, guns and
other equipment seized at the
time of their arrest.

The Board entered into
lengthy discussion as to a
request by the City of Port,St.
Joe for the County to pave
Cypress Avenue from Twen-
tieth Street to the School
Property, wherein the City
offered to pay one-half the
costs. Commissioner Kennedy
suggested the County pave
this street and pay for it from
the $50,000.00 gasoline tax held
by the State which can be
expended without a contract.
Commissioner Branch said
that the Board must follow its
priority list and that the City
of Port St. Joe has not listed
this street as priority number
one, nor has the County ever
placed it in priority number
one. He said that there are a
number of other streets in the
County that need paving be-
fore Cypress Avenue is paved.
Commissioner Kennedy
agreed that there were other
streets and roads in the Coun-
ty that have more homes on
them and are much older than
Cypress Avenue, but he said
those areas have not offered to
pay one-half the cost as Port
St. Joe has. He then made a
motion that the County accept
the offer of the City of Port St.
Joe to pay one-half the costs
and that Cypress Avenue be
paved immediately and this
same offer be made to the City
of Wewahitchka for any
streets in that City. No second.
Commissioner Branch moved
to accept the City's offer to
pave Cypress Avenue, provid-
ing the City pays one-half the
cost of paving a street in St.
Joe Beach. Commissioner
Kennedy seconded the motion.
Vote: Aye - Branch, Kennedy,
Davis, and the Chairman.
The Board requested. the
City of Port St. Joe and
Wewahitchka to present the
Board a new prioirty list for
road paving and that the
Board will then adopt a mas-
ter list for all road and street
paving in the County.

said the new added payment

confined to their homes or
immediate premises, yet not
so ill as to require nursing

Blackwell said VA's pro-

blem is that, although the
agency knows the identity of
those receiving DIC and aid
and attendance payments, it
has no way of knowing how
many of the DIC recipients
are sufficiently disabled to be
eligible for the new benefit.
"Prior to passage of this
new benefit, these individuals
were not covered by a confin-
ing disability that did' not
require nursing home care or
aid and attendance, so they

have never applied," he said.
To alert potential benefi-
ciaries, Blackwell said his
agency has enclosed a notice
of the new benefits category
