Box Plant Employees


Vote to Return to Work,


Employees of the Con-
tainer Division of St. Joe
Paper Company voted
Monday afternoon to re-
turn to work after a two
week strike of the local box
manufacturing plant.
Some 80 employees of the
plant walked out two weeks
ago over a dispute concern-
ing an employee who was
out on sick leave and was
refused employment when
he came back to work.
The strike ended Monday
after the employee decided


to ask the National Labor
Relations Board to. settle
the dispute between him-
self and the company.
Officials of the United
Paper Workers Interna-
tional Union, local 379 met
with company representa-
tives Monday morning for
their first talks since the
strike started and had
come to an agreement to go
back to work by late
afternoon.
Pickets have been re-
moved from the highway


and rail entrances to the
plant and the activity
started to resume produc-
tion was started at once.
The plant will start up
gradually and get into. full
production again as quick
as, orders are funneled
back into the plant and the
process of box production
can get into motion again.
Union officials said the
company stood firm on its
refusal to take back the
employee who had been
fired.


Recent articles in the area daily press
doesn't discourage George Tapper on Port St.
Joe's chances of building a super-duper
seafood processing and shipping facility here
in Port St. Joe. As a matter of fact, Tapper
says he feels better about the local situation.
During the past 10 days both the
Tallahassee Democrat and Panama City
News-Herald have printed stories to the effect
i|that Jim Cullison, an executive in the
Department of Natural Resources is. down-
grading the chances of Apalachicola, Carra-
belle and Panacea for getting similar port
installations due to environmental and
economic problems. Cullispn has all but


scratched the Apalachicola project for
environmental reasons (Apalachicola Bay is
now an estuarine sanctuary); Panacea for
environmental reasons and Carrabelle for
economic reasons, though Carrabelle still has
a chance to get state backing for such a
project. *
Tapper says this plays in Poft St. Joe's
favor. "In the first place", Tapper says, "we
have no environmental problems here. We
already have verbal approval for our project.
As for economics, we don't have to depend on
the state for this, we're getting our financing
from the Economic Development Association
in Washington, D.C., as well as loans


Utilities Bothered by County Rules


Gulf County now has a set of
rules and regulations govern-
ing the installation of utilities
on road rights of way and they
are also having pains in
getting the new rules into
operation.
Tuesday night, the Commis-
sion dealt with two utilities:
Gulf Coast Electric Coopera-
tive and St. Joe Natural Gas
Company.
Recently GCEC started re-
routing an electric high line in
, the Overstreet area on the
Pleasant Rest Cemetery road.
Due to conditions and wishes
of the adjoining land owner,
FICO farms, the electric firm
placed their high line on the
road side of the ditch, after


getting approval from a coun-
ty official. Later, some of the
Commissioners saw the line
there and thought it should be
moved on the back side of the
ditch so the ditch could be
cleaned and to remove a
driving hazard.
Tuesday night, Hub Norris,
manager of the Coop appeared
before the Board to say they
wished to abide by the rules
and had been in the past. As
Norris said, "It's easier for us
to put the line in the proper
place in the first place than it
is to move it."
Norris was asking for two
things: one a more simple
manner of getting approval of
installation since electric cus-


tomers need their power as
soon as possible in most cases,
and, two; to leave the line in
its present place since he had
permission to put it there in
the first place. Norris said he
followed the procedure. in
locating high lines as outlined
in a letter to him in 1976.
Commissioner Billy Branch
told Norris he saw no problem
with the quick decision on
where to place a line since "99
percent of the time there is no
problem with where to put it".
As for leaving the offending
line in its present place, the
Commission is going to take a
few days to make that deci-
sion.
Norris said, "We want to do


what is right and if you think
*we should move the line we
will, but it will cost. us
considerable money to do."
In the other question on
utility installation, Cecil G.
Costin, Jr., asked the Board to
grant St. Joe Natural Gas
Company permission to cut
streets at St. Joe Beach to
install natural gas lines in that
community.
Costin said, "We're install-
ing special plastic gas lines in
this area and it would be
extremely expensive to jack
the lines under the streets, as
well as delay installation of
gas service possibly until next
year."1
Costin said he would see the
roads were properly patched
after the installation.
Steve Shoaf, who will man-
age the Beach installation,
said there would be 50 to 60
cuts to be made in the
installation process.
Tom Knox, local manager of
the firm, told the Commission
the cuts would be immediately
filled with clay after installa-
tion and black top applied to
the cut just as soon as possible
after the work was completed.
The Commission was hesi-
tant to give the gas company
the go-ahead since there are
several streets planned for
cutting which had just been
re-surfaced. They seemed to
have few qualms about cut-


ting old streets which are due
for re-surfacing some time
next year and dirt streets.
As the discussion wound
down Tuesday night, the Com-
mission agreed to cutting the
dirt streets, but want to
discuss the matter further
with the gas company before
making a decision on whether
or not to allow the paved
streets to be cut.
A third question along this
*line concerned permission to
allow Mexico Beach to extend
their waterlines through
Beacor' Hill to Gulf Aire
subdivision. Mexico Beach
plans to offer water service to
residents of Beacon Hill along
their line.
The County had written
Mexico Beach asking that fire
hydrants be installed in Bea-
con Hill. A letter from Mexico
Beach Tuesday informed the
county they would make pro-
vision in the line for hydrants
to be installed, but the county
would have to bear the ek-
pense of the hydrants, at a
cost of about $600.00 each.
The county balked at this,
with Commissioner Leo Ken-
nedy saying he thought the
service would extend to St. Joe
Beach as well.
Mexico Beach's letter stated
they didn't have the water
capacity to serve St. Joe
Beach.


guaranteed from income from the facility
itself."
Tapper went on to explain that Port St.
Joe's project isn't the economic risk the
Franklin and Wakulla installations would be.
"We will be handling more than seafood,
though that will be a major emphasis and we
will also have the deep water port for
overseas shipment, which is what we are
really depending on to make this thing go over
big." All along Tapper, along with the Port
Authority, which he chairs, has been pushing
a plan which would place the seafood
handling .facility on the east side of the
Highland View bridge and ocean shipping


facilities for shipping the seafood and other
foodstuffs overseas. Principally the local port
will be aimed at handling and shipping
seafood and poultry products overseas.
"This seafood facility will be only part of
the project. We're already ahead of the state
in financing and I feel we will have our
funding completed before the first of the year
if we get our permits as we have been
promised", Tapper said.
The port authority chairman went on to
say, "I feel this situation has given us the
green light on our project and I expect to have
the go-ahead signal from Tallahassee agen-
cies by the end of this week. Then we will
formally apply for our permits."

M -*) /


.... rLast week, a judge in New York state
passed out an old-fashioned punishment to a
young man who had been charged in his court
p, with using obscene and foul language in
. public.
It seemed unusual to us that such an
offense of using offensive language would
hardly be noticed in this day and age when the
Four letter words seem to out-number the nicer
v verbage, even in polite and public gatherings.
It's hard to go anywhere these days, look
Ij at entertainment of any sort, indulge in a
conversation or attend school and even church
i functions, without having your ears bent
double by language which would hardly have
been used in strictest private several years
ago.
S In this particular case we're, talking
, about, Judge Lynn P. Dorset sentenced
| Thomas South, who had been charged with
uttering obscene and filthy words in public to
,have his mouth washed out with soap. The
alternative was a fine and jail sentence.
South took the mouth-washed-out-with-
soap sentence and had the punishment
Administered to him.
The mouth washing punishment was
probably the lesser of the ,choice he had to


make. Had he elected to pay the fine and take
the jail sentence, it would probably have
interfered with his busy social life and
interrupted some planned activity. With the
mouth washing, it was only a few moments of
discomfort while the soap was making a
disagreeable taste in his mouth And it would
all be over.
Looked at from another angle, when Mr.
South engaged in conversation again, we
believe he will remember the mouth-washing
longer than he would remember a fine or jail


sentence. Even though these might interfere
with his plans more than the other punish-
ment, most people today could take this
punishment with no problem and certainly no
disgrace any more in our permissive world.
Parents of a few years back liberally
applied the mouth washing technique when
young boys began to feel their oats and uttered
an epithet or two when they thought they were
just out of the hearing of mom and dad. It
worked very well.
We need something which will "work very


well". The color of our every-day language is
turning a dark, dark shade of blue. And it's all
so necessary.
If a person, especially a public person
can't learn to express himself in language
becoming a gentleman, he should be told of the
fact and clean up his act. If just plain,
everyday old "Joe" can't speak without
having to liberally spice his language with foul
words, he needs to keep his mouth shut until he
can learn to put his mind in gear before his
mouth begins to go into motion.


Congratulations, State Department
a 0 -


. We know President Carter didn't read our
editorial of last week and govern his actions
accordingly, but we are nevertheless glad to
see him take the actions we advocated as
those we should have taken a lofig time ago in
reference to Fidel Castro and his supposed
threat to the United States.

jIn a front page news.story in the papers
last Thursday, Carter administration officials
made it known that they had requested a


policy change toward Cuba.
The policy change would be one of
containment through more active participa-
tion in Latin and South American affairs by
'the United States.
In the change of plans, America will set
off in a direction of competing more
effectively with Cuba for influence with our
Latin American neighbors, Africa and Asia.
In the plan will be conferences to


determine strategies for curbing Cuba's
activities and isolating it politically. The
directive also described a growing displeasure
at high levels of government over Cuba's
military intervention in Africa and elsewhere
and its military ties with the Soviet Union.
Congratulations, State Department; at
last we are headed in a definite direction
toward overcoming a problem which should
never have been allowed to exist in the first
place.

Hebrews 12:2-3 (TEV)
Key Word: Faith in Jesus
"(Verse 2) Let us keep our
eyes fixed on Jesus, on whom
our faith depends from begin-
ning to end. He did not give up
because of the cross! On the
contrary, because of the joy
that was waiting for him, he

side of God's throne.
(Verse 3) Think of what he
went through; how he put up
with so much hatred, from

selves become discouraged
and give up."
Jesus is surely the light of
the world. Therefore, it is not
hard to find Him in order to

keep our eyes fixed on Him.
The name of Jesus is above
every name that is named. It
is upon this person, Jesus, that
our faith depends. The Holy
Spirit living within us allows
us to know that Heaven is
ready and waiting just over on
the other side of death. This
knowledge is what brings joy
to us as Christians even as it
did Jesus when the cross
became the reality to Him.
When life is the hardest,
think of what Jesus went
through. He was Love itself,
yet He was hated! Don't
become discouraged, but look
to Him and His strength He
will give to you for the asking!
Praise God for Jesus our

Would Regulate Growth In Gulf


growth and a plan would
channel this growth in the
areas where it would create
'the least chaotic impact on
existing services." Johnson
said.
Johnson said his firm was


working with the' power pro-
ject and said Gulf County is
now one of two possible sites
for the installation. "The
power company is now trying
to obtain permits in order to
see if their plan is environ-


mentally acceptable", he
said. "We are told we will
know their decision by August
of 1980."
Johnson went on to point out
that just this one project
would take 1200 to 1500 men


eight years to build. After it is
built the plant would employ
400 skilled people. "Just this
impact alone would create a
need for some kind of plan to
regulate things in a sensible
manner", Johnson concluded.


Don't Get Caught Out of Step with the World... Change Your Clock


TIME CHANGE
Come Saturday night, it will again
be time to change time.
For those of you who dislike
Daylight Saving Time, you will be
happy ... at least until next April,
when once again the time will revert
to the DST and make the rest of us
happy again.
6 Saturday night, one should turn
his clock back one hour in order to be
in step with the rest of the world. .. at
least with those who remember to
re-set their clocks.
Changing time will mean that
those who wish to go somewhere early
in the morning and want to be where
they are going by daylight will have to
get an earlier start. The sun will come
up earlier by the clock and go down
earlier in the evening. You will have
to play it careful Sunday morning, or
..-you will get to church just
about the time Sunday School is
starting. For those who enjoy the
extra hours of daylight in the evening,
especially now that it is cool and you
may piddle around in the yard a while
longer, it's the same theme as the
-Baltimore Orioles: "Wait until next


year."
I sort of like those extra hours in
the evening. I have my work cut out
for me, now. I have a lot of weeds to
pull before the time change and I don't
think I'm going to get them all out of
the ground before it's too late. I could
get up earlier in the morning and get
my day's work done before dark. but





.1




this is a sacrifice which is more than
my old body can bear. It likes that
extra hour of sleep in the morning.
Finding out the correct time in
our house is an adventure, whether it
is Daylight Savings Time or not. We,
like most everyone else, have a
multitude of time pieces in our house.


There is the clock on the range, the
alarm clock in the bedroom, which
never alarms, the clock hanging on
the wall in the den, the clock on the
mantle, the clock hanging in the
dining room and watches on the wrist
of all the occupants in our house.
Out of all these time pieces, you
will get as many variations as to just


what time it is. Sometimes the
average will vary from 30 minutes to
an hour. It's a wonder we ever get
anywhere on time.
This must be the reason Frenchie
turns the television on in the morning.
Nobody ever watches it in the
morning, but when Captain Kangaroo


comes on, we all know it is time to get
going to wherever we are going.
We'll be glad to turn our clocks
back an hour next Saturday night.
That will mean an extra hour of sack
time on that particular night.
Every year, we make a feeble
attempt to get that extra hour of sleep,
but invariably we'll turn the clock


back and use that extra hour reading,
watching some particular show on TV
or just enjoying the cool evenings we
have with us in October.
SERIES IS OVER
The World Series is over and our
team didn't win.


For too many of those nights the
ball players struggled with one
another, we sat there until the last out,
as the World Series is our favorite
sport show on the tube. We've always
liked baseball and it seems like the
World Series games, though played by
the same players who played all
season long, are games which are just
a cut above your 'regular baseball
game.
Stiles Brown contributed a tidbit
on the World Series to us last week. He
came into the office and handed us a
piece of paper on which he had
written, "I'm sure that 1980 is going to
be a great year. Howard Cosell will
not be broadcasting the World
Series!"
He's right, you know.
Some other station will be carry-
ing the World Series next year. For
that, we can more eagerly await next
year's series.
Howard was just a little too much
during the past series even for
Howard. His grating, grinding voice
was just a little too much in evidence
for us to take. The only piece of
consolation we could find in the


situation was that we were thankful
we didn't have the jobs of Keith
Jackson or Don Drysdale. They had to
listen to Howard before the pre-game,
during the pre-game, during the game
and then after the game. They
probably even had to socialize with
him between games and listen to him
some more.
CHANGES
We have decided to try something
new in page lay-out this week and see
if you and our staff like it. For quite a
while now, we have used the same
lay-out on this page and thought it was
due for a change.
It has finally come to the point
where we can make this page up with
our eyes closed, simply because we
have done it so many times. We can
almost sit down to the typesetter to
come up with our contribution to the
page and know just exactly how many
lines of type it will take to fill the page
up without having to shuffle, figure
and crop some article or another.
That means it is time for a
change, so here it is.
We hope you like it.

the hospital:
An account was set up in the

accredited, as well as improv-
ing the physical plant and its
facilities. These two large

Wilkerson is widely known
for his successful work among
drug addicts and gang mem-
bers in New York ghettos. His
book "The Cross and the
Switchblade", written about
his work, has sold over 16
million copies.
In 1958 Wilkerson became
famous in the New York area
for interrupting the Michael
,Farmer murder trial. Seven.
young gang members were on
triall for the brutal murder of a
polio victim, Michael Farmer.
In an attempt to help the
young gang members, Wilker-
son interrupted the court
session and was promptly
dragged from the courtroom.
The ensuing publicity made
the young minister from Pen-
nsylvania a hero among New -
York's, 350 teenage gangs. The
gangs were soon allowing him
to visit and speak in their
hideouts, from which came
the nickname "Gang Preach-
er."
Dave Wilkerson is the found-

successful drug addiction re-

But with a wife, somebody is always there to
keep your spirits up and boost your morale,"
he said.
In high school, Lawrence played both tight
end and linebacker. He was selected as the
Big Bend Conference Player-of-the-Year in
1976. "When I got to Florida and they told me
I was to play center, it was an entirely new
experience," Lawrence said.
After a good spring practice, Lawrence
went into the fall as the starting Gator center.
But in the first week of practice, he injured
his neck and is now just coming back into
form. "It has taken me a while to get back my
competitive edge," he said. "I haven't played
up to my potential yet this season."
Lawrence is a recreation major who hopes
to go into the ministry after graduation. He is
active in both the Fellowship of Christian
Athletes and the Campus Crusade for Christ.
"I chose recreation because it is the most
suitable major for what I wanted to do,"
Lawrence said.

Gulf County Commission


1979-80 fiscal year as approved
by the Board, in the total
amount of $151,449.61. There
was a motion by Commission-
er Birmingham, second by
Commissioner Kennedy, that
said budget be approved.
Motion passed unanimously.
Tommy Pitts filed a report
as to expenditures of the
$11,400.00 grant from the State
Department of Community
Affairs, showing that $7,507.78
has been expended for the
period ending September 30,
1979.
The United States Depart-
ment. of Interior, Geological
Survey Division, having here-
tofore filed its application for
a permit to install two water
gauges on County right of way
at the Dead Lakes, this
application was approved
upon the recommendation of
Tommy Pitts. Pitts then re-
commended the approval of
an application from the St.
Joseph Telephone and Tele-
graph.Company for a permit
to cross the Kemp Cemetery
Road with an underground
cable, the cable to be jacked
underneath the surface of the
road. This application was
unanimously approved.
The Board the discussed an
application by the St. Joseph
Telephone and Telegraph to
install an underground tele-
phone cable along tle right of
way of the Pleasant Rest
Cemetery Road. Pitts report-
ed that the plans called for this
cable to be buried only three
feet from the paved portion of .
this road. He said there was a
problem presented here due to
the fact that the County had no
recorded right of way ease-
ment on this road, but this
road was a public road
because it had been maintain-
ed by the County Road Depart-
ment for the past 60 years and
when C.L. Morgan, et als. sold
this land to A.S. Mitchell, the
title included the following
clause, to-wit: "but that this
warranty of title does not
apply to Public Roads, rights-
of-way, or easements." This
same stipulation was included
in the Mitchell deed to the
James Company. Pitts in-
formed the Board that the
representative of the present
land owner claims the County
had no right to this road and
that he was actually planting
beans.in a part o6 thse.ui.
bank of the ditcl_ The Attor-
ney advised the Board that it
had full right to maintain this
road just as if an easement
had been recorded and that
such right-of-way included the
ditches. The Board directed
Pitts to inform St. Joseph
Telephone and Telegraph to
install the cable on the back
slope of the ditch.
The Board discussed the <
fact that the Gulf Coast
Electric Cooperative power
poles were only five feet from
the edge of the pavement and
that they should be installed
on the back slope of the ditch.
These poles were installed
without a County permit. The
Clerk was instructed to notify
Gulf Coast Electric Coopera-
tive that in the future it could
not install utility equipment on
County rights-of-way until
they had first obtained a
permit from the County.
Tommy Pitts reported on
progress being made in the
County's attempt to have the
United States Army Corps of
Engineers to reopen Corley
Slough.
Pitts then informed the
Board that the State had
agreed to issue Gulf County a
permit to construct an above
the ground sanitary garbage
disposal site in the Port St. Joe
area. He said this first permit
did not include putting it into
use, that a separate permit
must be obtained.
Pitts told the Board that an
order for the door for the Port
St. Joe Ambulance building
was placed several weeks
ago; however, the door has not
been delivered, nor can the
salesperson that sold the door
be contacted. Pitts said that
he had cancelled this order.
The Board instructed him to
secure a door from anyone
that would make delivery.
The Road Superintendent
told the Board that he was
running out of clay in the
Stone Mill Creek borrow pit;
that the owner of the pit has
agreed to lease the County an
additional two acres. The
Board approved the purchase
of an additional 5 acres and
instructed the Superintendent
to secure five acres if the
owner would agree. Commis-
sioner Birmingham said that
he has had requests from
citizens that they be allowed to
remove clay from the County
borrow pits without charge to
them and asked if the County
had a policy on this. He was
advised that the past policy on
this was that the County could
not give or sell fill dirt or clay.
The Sheriff reported 4hat he
must replace two of his
vehicles and that he has found
the trade-in value to be much

sale would be replaced in his
budget as a current refund in
order that he then purchase
his new vehicles by paying
cash.
Commissioner Gortman told
the Board that the Wewa
Ambulance Squad was having
a special meeting on October
1st at 7:00 p.m. to publicly
show.its appreciation to FICO
for donating the land for the
ambulance site and that all
members of the Board were
invited and urged to attend.
Commissioner Gortman
discussed a drainage problem
in the Land's Lake area that is
believed to be caused by the
big ditch running from Trans-
fer Road and the small culvert
near the Greer home. In a
discussion that followed, it
was agreed that the entire
County was flooded from the
last two weeks of rain and this
situation would get worse
because the weather report
promised another full week of
rain. The Road Department
will study this situation.
Commissioner Gortman in-
formed the Board that the
Highland Park Fire Depart-.
ment has a very good operat-
ing 1950 Ford Fire Truck for
sale at $4,500.00 and that the
Howard Creek Volunteer Fire'
Department has request the
County advertise for a used
fire truck and apply the
$3,000.00 budgeted for the
Howard Creek Fire Depart-
ment equipment on the pur-
chase price and the depart-
ment would pay the balance of
the purchase price. The Board
voted to expend the $3,000.00
on a used fire truck and also
authorized the building of a
shelter for the equipment.
Commissioner Gortman in-
formed the Commission that
he contacted Ottis Smith, as
directed' by the Board, to
determine if Smith was ser-
ious when he asked that the
County give up its easement
for the ditch across his
property. He said that Smith
was serious, in fact, insistent
that the easement be aban-
doned by the county; that
Smith said he would do all the
necessary maintenance work
and that he would not close the
ditch. Commissioner Gortman
recommended that the County
abandon the easement on this
ditch. Tommy Pitts reminded
the Board that this easement
drains a very large area of the
County and that the ditch must
remain open. He also, told the
Board that Varnell Armstrong
had an agreement with the
County as to this ditch cross-
ing his property. No decision
made.
Commissioner Gortman told
the Board that the ASCS Farm
Committee has requested of-
fice space in the old court-
house. He said it may be
possible for the ASCS to share
space with the Veteran's
Officer and -also4 allow -the
Farm Agent to use the-same
space. Commissioner Bir-
mingham said' there was
available space on the second
floor but it was not in usable
condition at this time. No
decision made.
Commissioner Gortman
said it was necessary that the
County have a surveyor locate
and mark the County right of
Away lying between the Bur-
rows and Mims property at
Overstreet. The Board direct-
ed that this be done.
Commissioner Birmingham
discussed the drainage pro-
blem in the County. He asked
what had been done about the
drainage in the Gulf County
Farms Subdivision. The Road
Superintendent said all dit-
ches have been cleaned out.
Commissioner Birmingham
said that a master drainage
plan must be worked out for
this area and other areas of
the County. He said that even
though the ditches were clean-
ed, the water could not go
anywhere, but that it should
cross State Road 71 and
County Road 381 and on to the
Chipola River. He requested
the Road Superintendent and
the ,Administrative Assistant
to the Board to begin working
on a master plan that would
insure proper drainage of all
problem areas.
Commissioner Birmingham
reported that he had comple-
ted the taking of inventory on
the Wewa Ambulance Build-
ing and the Health Depart-
ment and found Item No.
220-3, Typewriter.; 120-17,
Typewriter; and 120-42,
Needle Sharpener junked.
Commissioner Birmingham
told the Board that citizens in
the north end of the County
were requesting that a small
airplane landing strip that
they were now using be turned
into a public strip; that the
owner had agreed to lease the
strip for this purpose. After
lengthy discussion, the Board
tabled this matter for further

study.
Commissioner Tankersley
informed the Board that the
Port St. Joe Ambulance Squad
had requested that their build-
ing be enlarged; that this
squad had ten emergency
medical technician applica-
tions.
Commissioner Tankersley
said he was receiving com-
plaints that Tyndall Field had
become a speed trap. The
Attorney was instructed to
contact the commanding of-
ficer about this matter.
Commissioner Kennedy dis-
cussed the drainage problem
in the Ward Ridge area and
asked that a study be made of
this area.
Commissioner Tankersley
said that drainage problems
also existed in Highland View
and White City. He said that
one problem in White City was
that driveways along SR71
were without culverts and
every driveway blocked the
flow of water.
Commissioner Kennedy told
about a drainage problem at
Simmons Bayou. He said that
the ditch on the east side of the
highway stays full of water,
but the one on the west side
drains off much better. He
suggested the installation of
another culvert in this area,
which would speed up the flow
of water in these ditches.
Kennedy told of attending the
State Regional Planning Com-
mission meeting held in Or-
lando. He said that at the
present time there were only
two elected officials on the
committee and there was now
a move to eliminate the
appointment of elected offi-
cers, but that the State
Association of County Com-
missioners wduld fight this
proposal. He urged all mem-
bers of the Board to attend the
State Association of County
Commissioners meeting be-
ginning September 26 through
29th in Pensacola and help
defeat this proposal.
The Chairman- told the
Board that he had completed
an inventory check on the
Courthouse and Civil Defense.
He then appointed the follow-
ing committee to work out
plans, to secure the surplus
government property (old
lighthouse) at Beacon Hill:
A.L. Hargraves, A.O. Boyette,
and John F. Tatum.
The Chairman asked if the
Board had a policy as to
whether or not the County
would open a street in a
subdivision where no one lived
at this time and where the
street had never been opened
or used. The Board was
advised that an old policy of
the Board would not require
opening this type street be-
cause it was the sellers
obligation to furnish the buyer
of. the lots an access to the
property purchased if there
was not a street already there.
This matter was tabled for
further study.
The Chairman told the
Board that the big ditch on the
west side of SR71 in White City
required forty feet of 60 inch
concrete pipe for a road
crossing, which road would be
paved under the Secondary
Road Construction Program.
The Board approved the pur-
chase 'of this culvert, to be
paid from the Secondary Road
Construction Budget.
The Chairman told the
Board that this completed the
business for the fiscal year
ending September 30th; there-
fore, it was now time to elect a
Chairman and Vice Chairman
for the 1979-80 fiscal year.
Whereupon, the Board unan-
imously elected Commission-
er Birmingham as Chairman
and Commissioner Tanker-
sley as Vice Chairman.
Commissioner Branch
thanked the Board for the
cooperation he received dur-
ing the last year. He said the
Board had a very good year.
Commissioner Birmingham
thanked the Board for electing
him Chairman and promised
to work with each Commis-
sioner with every problem
that presented itself and he
urged the Board to work with
him to assure another good
year.
