Big Savings Made In Electricity

Sewell School Board Chairman

Paul Sewell, serving his first term on the Gulf
County1 School Board, became the Board's
_chairman for the next fiscal year in a re-organiza-
tion meeting last week. Serving with Sewell as
vice-chairman will be veteran Board member,
Gene Raffield. Sewell succeeds Fred Greer, who
served as chairman during the past year.
At the meeting, Superintendent Walter Wilder
reported to the Board that the system had managed
:tosave $7,000 in its utility bills this year in Port St.
Joe alone. *Wilder said the. savings, mostly
electricity, were the result of a concentrated effort
to cut down on the size of the monthly expenses in
', "With the rising cost of electricity, I'think we
Xywould have been doing good to just stay even with
the amount spent on electricity, but to reduce the

amount paid out by $7,000 is just a fantastic effort on
the part of our people to cut expenses", Wilder said.,
He said most of the savings were obtained by a
re-organization of night school classes, re-locating
them out of the High School and into the Elementary
School, where individual air conditioning and
heating units are provided in each room. "That
way, we used utilities only in the rooms being
used", he pointed out. Wilder also pointed out that
time clocks had been installed on the air
conditioning and heating units at the high school,.
reducing, their time of operation. "When it's time
for school to let out, the units go off and they don't
come back on until just before school opens in the
morning", Wilder said.
While the $7,000 savings in utilities was being
realized at the Port St. Joe High School building

alone, Wilder said a savings of $9,000 had been
experienced over the entire school system during
the months of July, August and September alone.
"We're going to try to. improve even more in our
cost savings", Wilder said.
Wilder reported that a new report card system
for kindergarten grades is also being introduced
and will be in operation for the grading period
which will come out at the end of the semester.
The Superintendent said the kindergarten
students would receive report cards four times
during the school year, with three grading periods
remaining in the present school year.
The new valuation reports for kindergarten
students will report on such areas as coordination,
counting ability, recognition of colors and progress.


Port St. Joe is beginning to take on that
"Christmas look", as City work crews began
the task this week of putting up Christmas
decorations in the downtown section of the

City. In the photo above, Roosevelt Beard
takes the high post in the lift bucket, while
Mansfield Gainer, Ronnie Lee Gathers and
Ricky Farmer give assistance on the ground
as decorations are installed on Main Street in
North Port St. Joe. The decorations will be in
place in time for the Christmas parade next

Everyone in the city seemed
to be "thinking Thanksgiving"
more than they were city
business at the meeting of the
City Commission last Tuesday
night. Even with a reduced
agenda and no visitors pres-
ent, the Commission consider-
ed two items which will affect
certain areas of the city.
An ordinance was introduc-
ed which would change the
zoning stipulation 'of two
blocks in the city in the Fifth
Street and Garrison Avenue
Affected by the ordinance
change were blocks 29 and 35.
Block 29 is located on the east,
side of Garrison and north side
df 'Fifth eet.' Block 35 is
located across Fifth Street
from block 29. Both are now
designated as C-2, Commer-
cial District (light industrial).
A requested .change ini zon-
ing by St. Joe Paper Com-
pany, owners of the property,
would change the zone desig-
nation of both blocks to C-1-A
which would upgrade the
property to Commercial Dis-
trict (restricted retail).
The Commission will hold a
public hearing at its next
meeting, Tuesday, December'
4, before the zoning change is
made final.
Block 29 now contains the
shops of the St. Joe Paper
Company Woodlands Division.
The portion of block 35 to be
changed is now vacant proper-
Only the north half of block
35 will be affected by the
zoning change. Also included
in the change request is the
opening of an alley, running
east and west from Westcott
Circle to Knowles Avenue. The
alley will begin at the start of
the curve in Westcott Circle,
directly to Knowles Avenue.
All property south of the new
alleyway will not be affected
by the zoning change.
Fire Chief Bascom Hamm
asked the Commission to
consider putting another fire
siren into operation in the
vicinity of Garrison Avenue.
Hamm said many of the
firemen live in this area and
are unable to hear the present

sirens which call them to
action, because they are so far
Hamm said, "Especially in
the winter time, with the wind
blowing in the opposite direc-
tion, these firemen just can't
hear the sirens at night."
The Commission asked
Hamm to come up with his
recommendation as to where
the siren would be most
effective and present his find-
ings to the Commission.

Ask for Light

At RR Crossing

Residents in the vicinity of
Avenue A in North Port St.
Joe, led by Paul Gant, asked
the County Commission to see
about having warning lights
installed at' the Apalachicola
Northern Railroad tracks
across Avenue A Tuesday
'night at the County Commis-
sion meeting.
Gant said, "You can't see a
train crossing 'the street at
night and it's a dangerous
situation". Gant said it is
almost impossible to see the
cars crossing the road at
night, after the engine has
passed by.
The Commission had al-
ready been discussing the
crossing in the past and have
applied to the DOT to place
warning signs at all railroad
crossings in the county. Gant's
request caused the Commis-
sion to be concerned with this
crossing more particularly.
County administrative as-
sistant Tommy Pitts said he
had been in touch with R. H.
Ellzey, railroad superinten-
dent concerning a light for the
crossing and had learned such

a signal light would cost about
$40,000, with the county being
required to bear half the cost.
Pitts said cross arms,would'
probably be required also by
the DOT.-
Commissioner Billy Branch
said he-felt the City of Port St.
Joe-should also be contacted
about the matter since the
street is in the city. Branch
-then made a motion to have
the lights installed with the
county's share to be paid for
out of the gasoline tax con-
struction money. He also
requested that the City of Port
St. Joe be advised of. the
The Board approved the
motion unanimously.
For several months the
Commission, especially Com-
missioner Billy Branch, has
been concerned about the need
for an ordinance to give the
County the power to regulate
unsightly conditions in the
unincorporated areas of the
Interest in such an ordin-
ance was sparked by a protest

from Oak Grove residents to
property in their area being
used to store used equipment
and old vehicles.
Tuesday night, attorney Wil-
liam J. Rish had the first draft
of such an ordinance ready
and had included a section to
-gtve'the County power to
remove old delapidated build-
ings, at Branch's request.
This sparked a long con-
Commissioner Leo Kennedy
violently 'opposed the new
addition to the ordinance
saying it covered too wide a
scope. He felt a person living
out of the way, removed from
other people should not be
affected by a threat from the
Branch then explained the
ordinance covered only build-
ings which were "decayed,
falling down or burned (more
than half destroyed)" the
Ordinance would apply.
Kennedy retorted, "I know
of people living in buildings
like that. Are you going to

Only Two of 13 Cases Get to Trial

Of the 13 cases scheduled to
be tried in the fall session of
Gulf County Circuit Court last
week, only- two cases actually
went to trial.

a not guilty verdict by the jury
on a charge of uttering a
forged instrument. Max Wood,

John Dean Rouse Had Close Call

Florida Highway Patrol Trooper
Herschel Hill said John Dean Rouse of
Wewahitchka had the brakes of his pulp
wood truck to fail, causing him to knock
the restraining gate loose at the
drawbridge at White City last Wednes-
day afternoon.
Trooper Hill, who is shown in the
picture above, questioning Rouse, said
the truck driver came up on the open
bridge and hit the brakes, but the pedal
went all the way to the floor. Rouse then
reportedly hit the pedal again and the

brakes caught slightly. He hit the
brakes a third time and, this time,
brought the truck to a stop about 30 feet
before he reached the open span of the
bridge, but after he had knocked down
the retaining arm, shown on the ground
at the rear of the truck.

Bridge tender, James Lovett, said
he heard the crash and thought
someone had ran through the bridge
into the canal until he looked back and
saw what had happened. "The bridge

was wide open, letting a tug boat
through", Lovett said.
Trooper Hill said trucks going
through the retainer arms at the bridge
keeps him busy. "It happens all the
time, sometimes two or three times a
week", he said.,
Rouse was another one who was
lucky enough to stop his heavy truck
before it carried him into the canal,
where the water is deep under the
bridge opening.

Momma didn't stay completely
away from teaching, however; she
taught Sunday School for most of her

Momma was tough. She and Daddy
started their married life and family
during the 30's when it was rough
everywhere. She made our shirts and
shorts from Pillsbury flour sacks with a
second hand Singer treadle sewing
machine which she continued to use
until she got to where she couldn't see
well enough just a few years ago. She
taught all of us to be tough and self
reliant, a trait which has proven
invaluable to all of us over the years.
As her instructor, Momma used a
leather strap which hung behind the
kitchen door, liberally. At times I
thought it was too liberally. The strap is
still hanging there.
We'll miss her, of course, but we'd
miss her more if she hadn't considered
her life a good time here on earth.

quet. Interspersed among the

ted among the guests by the

that the power-of the U.S.S.R.
is steadily increasing; that
their missile power is four
times as great as ours; that
we have no defense against

The speaker for the day,
Mrs. Eda Ruth Taylor, was
introduced by Mrs. Ralph
Swatts, Sr. Her subject was
"Pocahontas, the Indian
Maiden Who Wove a Tapestry
of Peace Among Early Set-

review of the book on Poca-
hontas by Frances Mossiker.
Mrs. Taylor spoke of the
Jamestown Settlement of 1607,
Virginia's first permanent set-
tlement; of Chief Pow-hat-an,
a very important personage
who governed six tribes and
was said to have twenty sons
and ten daughters, of whom
Pocahontas, about 14 at that
time, was the favorite. She
told how Captain John Smith
had been captured by the
Indians 'and rescued from
certain death by this'spirited
young woman, and how she
saved the settlers from star-
vation by bringing food every
few days; how she risked her
own life to warn the settlers of
a surprise attack by the
Indians, and how she renoun-
ced her own people and
accepted Christianity.
Mrs. Taylor said that Poca-
hontas was placed in the care
of Reverend Whitaker and

cast the lone "nay" vote.

Another point of contention
in the otherwise slow meeting
Tuesday concerned giving the
power to approve installation
of utilities on county road
rights of way to Tommy Pitts
rather than waiting to bring
each request back to the board
for approval.
Pitts said he had enough to
do now without the added
responsibility of personally
inspecting each future utility
installation to see if it comp-
lied with county rules.
Motions were made to give
the responsibility to Pitts and
to the Road Department, with
both suggestions ending in
disagreement among the
Board members.
So, utilities must still cool
their heels after making an
application for installation,
until the Board can meet and
act on their request.

Fireplaces Need Maintenance, too*

As Fall tenatiously crowds
out the last hold of summer,
people start thinking about
winterizingg" their homes for
the cold months ahead.
The major area usually
thought of first, is the heating
system. However, according
to the Brick Institute of
America's Region Nine, some
areas of concern are not
always considered, especially
as they relate to fireplaces.
BIA-Nine's Z.A. Snipes
urges homeowners to take
special note of the construc-
tion and the maintenance on
fireplaces, especially those

containing metal fireplace
liners, instead of masonry
(stone or brick). Marketed
under various brand names,
metal lined fireplaces can
either be free standing or be
used as the core for masonry
which is built around or on top
of the firebox.
"The Standard Building
Code", which is the model
code used in most of our
southern area states, except
southern Florida, cautions
that the minimum standard
for metal fireplace liners
require them to be at least 14
inch thick", explains Snipes.
"The code is a fire safety

Things Hunters Need

to be Reminded Of

Tularemia (rabbit fever),
heart attacks and gunshot
wounds due to poor vision are
three subjects the Florida
Medical Association feels
hunters should be reminded
Tularemia is carried by wild
rabbits and other small game.
It can also be spread by the
bites of insects, by drinking
infected water, or by eating
infected, poorly cooked meat.
The first symptoms of tula-
remia are sudden and severe
headaches, vomiting, chills
and fever, and aching
throughout the body. A doctor
should be called at once.
To keep from contracting
tularemia, wear rubber gloves
when' handling wild animal
meat, avoid eating oi handling
animals which appear sick or
weak and cook wild rabbit
meat thoroughly before eat-
Another danger, of the hunt-

ing season is heart attacks.
Some states report that heart
attacks kill three times as
many hunters as gunshot
wounds. Many of these deaths
could be prevented with a
pre-hunting season physical to
determine if the hunter's
heart is ready for such stren-
uous outings.
A pre-season eye exam is
also a good idea. The National
Rifle Association estimates
one in four victims in hunting
accidents is a case of mistak-
en identity a human being
mistaken for an animal. Be-
fore taking to the woods,
vision should be checked and
industrial strength safety
lenses with the proper vision
correction should be worn.-
Such glasses can protect from
the ricochet of bullets, blows
to the eye from the rifle or
scratches and cuts to the eye
from trees and branches en-
countered while hunting.

protection for homeowners
who are using fireplaces with
metal liners that may in time
deteriorate with the exposure
to heat", said Snipes.
In addition to watching for
the thickness of metal fire-
place liners, Snipes said that
the building codes also require
factory built fireplaces and
stoves which are free standing
and not enclosed by masonry,
to be certified by independent
laboratory testing as being
fire safe. "Apropriate equip-
ment will have a certified seal
on it from these laboratories."

Just as important, Snipes
noted that equipment must be
installed in accordance with
the conditions of the listing, to
be free of hazard.
"Masonry fireplaces have
been around for years and
have proven completely safe if
properly constructed," said
Snipes, adding "But they also
should be maintained by regu-
lar cleaning and checking of
the chimney and damper
Snipes added that many
fireplaces actually cause a
loss of heating efficiency in a

home instead of adding to it as
homeowners expect. "Many
are constructed so as to draw
the air they need for their
combustion from the already
heated interiors of the horhe."
Snipes said that some modifi-
cations to existing brick con-
structed fireplaces, can be
made by interested homeown-
ers to make them more energy
efficient. This information can
be obtained from the Brick
Institute of America, Region
Nine offices, at 100 North-
creek, Suite 280, Atlanta, Ga.

Call -

Keep the seed moist, but be
careful not to over-water.
Overwatering can wash the
seed away and it may add to
disease problems. Once the
grass is well-established, wa-
ter as needed.
The bad part about estab-
lishing a Ryegrass lawn is that
you'll have to mow, water,
fertilize and look out for pest
problems all winter long.
You'll have to fertilize about
once a month. The first time
you do you should use a
complete fertilizer, 8-8-8 or
10-10-10 will do. After that, use
a nitrogen fertilizer. Follow
the manufacturer's recom-
mended rates.
If you fertilize properly, the
Ryegrass law will grow quick-
ly, and you'll need to mow
about once a week. Begin
mowing as soon as the grass is
tall enough to be cut one or two
Finally, watch for a disease
problem known as pythium.
Also called Damping Off or
Cottony Blight. It seems to
cause the most trouble on
over-watered and over-ferti-

lized Ryegrass, especially
during spells of warm wea-
ther. Check with your garden
center operator for an appro-
priate fungicide.
So, in conclusion, with a
little extra work, you can
brighten up your winter land-
scape with a rich, green
Ryegrass lawn. Why not give
it a try?

The "bagoin" of 1/4% more.
All of us look for bargains these days.
It just makes sense.jBi4twe have to look
'" ~-~ritlytt those "bargain'Are.ey
really a savings? Or do they cost us
For instance, let's look at the 1/4%
more interest paid by savings and
loan associations than by banks. On a'
passbook savings account of $1,000, that's
about $2.50 more per year.
But saving at a separate place from
where you bank, means extra trips. And
gasoline costs about $1.00 a gallon. Just a
couple of gallons a year for the added


distance wipes out your savings "increase."
Nobody can do more for your
money tharJe. "pdg National
, peOpl.. because they can give youi the :;:
convenience of saving where you bank
and more.
The Florida National people can
develop a custom savings program for
you, that makes your money work its
hardest. For your needs, your goals, what
you want your money to do now and
in the future.
These days it makes more sense
'than ever to get to know your bank. The
