to Allow Tax Exemption ,
Gulf County voters will be asked to
go to the polls this year, possibly within
The purpose of the special election
will be to determine whether or not the
voters of Gulf County wish to give the
County Commission the authority to
reduce or abolish county ad valorem
taxes for new industry which might
come into the county.
The tax reduction program to
encourage new industry, was approved
last year by the Legislature and
subsequently in an election in October
f last year during the regular primary
elections. If approved in a referendum,
on a county basis, acceptance of the
plan would allow the County Commis-
sion to grant total or partial ad valorem
tax exemption for up to five years for
any new industry.which might wish to
locate in the county.
George G. Tapper requested the
county to hold the referendum, in order
to give him a working tool in his current
campaign to sign up industry and firms
to use the new proposed port facilities.
"If we know this exemption is available
, here in Gulf County, it makes our
selling job much easier", Tapper said.
Other counties in this area, notably
Bay and Washington, have already
approved such an authority for their
The plan met with unanimous
approval of the Commission, but
Commissioner Billy Branch wanted to
make an attempt to secure volunteer
poll holders to man the polls since the
county budgeted no election funds this
year. There were no regularly schedul-
ed elections for this year. Commission-
er Doug Birmingham objected saying
he felt the county should hold the
election in the normal manner to keep
down any controversy which might
arise and made a motion to that effect.
Birmingham's motion carried, but
Branch still wanted to try to secure
volunteer poll holders if possible.
Holding of an election in Gulf
County costs around $5,000.
Attorney William J. Rish said he
would get together with Elections
Supervisor Cora Sue Robinson and they
would try to have the election ready to
roll within 90 days.
Commissioner Jimmy Gortman
suggested and lobbied successfully for
a straw ballot to be placed on the
special referendum. His question would
be whether or not the people of the
county would approve of the County
Commission using county money to
purchase property known as "street
ends" on St. Joe Beach for the purpose
of maintaining the areas for public use.
The Board had said they would call
for the question in a referendum in a
county election, and.Gortman wants to
use the one coming up as the vehicle to
decide that question.
Commissioner Branch felt the
question should be asked in a regular
election and felt it might hurt the
chances of the tax exemption passing.
Even though the question on the
ballot called for by Gortman was a
straw ballot and carried no mandates to
the Board to purchase the property in
question, the Commission still approv-
ed Gortman's request with Branch
casting the lone dissenting vote.
County Has $350,000 Paving Money
Gulf County still has some
$350,000 in the bank to use for
road paving and this evening
the Commission will meet at
the CourthouSe at 7:00 p.m., to
determine where it should
properly be spent.
County Administrative As-
sistant Tommy Pitts advised
rhe-Board Tuesday in the
regular meeting session the
county still had $28,000 left
from their recent bond issue,
$244,000' which has accrued
this year from the state
secondary program, some
$3,000 in reimbursements and
$75,000 in an account with the
state which hasn't been called
for as yet.
Pitts advised the Board that
in his opinion the state would
begin funding primary toad
building and repairs again
later in the year and suggest-
ed the county get cracking
with plans to spend its road
money immediately. "Right
now, there is no road work
going on, and we can get some

After Six Month Delay
Tax Bills Near Mailing
Those of you who have been anxiously awaiting a notice
from your Tax Collector since late last October in order to
have the opportunity to pay your county, school and city
taxes, don't have to wait much longer.
According to Tax Collector, Eda Ruth Taylor, the tax
bills were received this week from the computer and it will be
only a matter of days now before they will go into the mails.
The Tax Collector's office received the bills late last
week some 5,000 of them and are now in the process of
sorting and recording the statements before they are put into
the mails. Tuesday, when this picture was made, the Tax
Collector's crew was getting thebillsogether to be placed in
the mailing envelop.,
Tax Collector Taylor said the bills should go into the
mails by next Tuesday. "We're trying for next Tuesday", she
said, "But we may be a day or two later with the mailing."
At any rate, by late next week, you should know just how
much money you owe in local taxes and you will have 30 days
to pay the bill.
Many county tax payers have already paid an estimate
on their county taxes and will be faced with paying the
balance during the 30 day period after the bills are mailed
out. A very few lucky ones who paid early may even get a
Taylor said the current tax bills will-become delinquent
after 30 days from the mail date.
Federal Cut Backs Affect Schools
Gulf County Schools are
facing a money crisis, with
federal cut-backs being pro-
grammed for the coming
In their regular session
Tuesday of this week, the
School Board'took the first of
several steps it knows it needs
to take to meet the lack of
federal funds in the future.
"The main place we will be
hurting on a local basis is in
the areas of teacher aides,
lunchroom operations and re-
medial teaching positions",
Superintendent Walter Wilder
Wilder 'said he expects a
huge cut in the financing of
"throwing that program into a
Already, the School Board
has taken one step to meet the
impending crisis and will take
a "wait and see" attitude on
the others. Tuesday, the
Board voted to discontinue 14
teaching aide positions. The
aides will finish out the
present school year but will
not be included in next year's
plan, which begins in July.
Wilder said, "The biggest
impact will be on our lunch-
room operations, but Wilder
nor the Board knew enough
about the extent of the effects
from the cut-back to make a
decision at the present time in
this operation. "We'll just
have to wait and see what
happens", Wilder said.
Presently, students in ele-
mentary schools pay 50 cents
for lunches and high school
students pay 60 cents. "If the
government makes good on its
threat to cut out all subsidies,
we can see the price of a
school lunch going -up to
between $1.00 to $1.25, which is
the actual cost of preparing
the meal", Wilder said.
The Superintendent pointed
out that all lunches served by
the school are subsidized to an
extent. It seems the shady
area is what is going to happen
to those who receive even
further subsidies in their
lunches because of economic
Wherever the cuts come,
Wilder said he looked for the
federal cuts to amount to
about $50,000 in the Gulf
County School System. "To us,
that's a lot of money", he said.

County's "Teacher of the Year"
Superintendent of Schools Walter Wilder, plaque Tuesday morning, designating her as
presents Judith McKnight Lister with a Gulf County's "Teacher of the Year."
Mrs. Judith McKnight
Lister, second grade teacher
in the Wewahitchka-
Elementary School, has been
selected as. Gulf County
Teacher of the Year, accord-
ing to School Superintendent
Walter Wilder. Mrs. Lister, a
graduate of Florida State
University, has taught in
Wewahitchka for the past 11
years. Married to Mike Lister,
local businessman, she is the
mother of Michael, a seventh
grader at Wewahitchka High
School, and Aimee, a fourth
grader, in Wewahitchka Ele-
Although Mrs. Lister's
classroom is located in the
oldest school plant in the
county, a step inside is a
delight to the eye. Learning
centers are tucked into each
available nook, gay curtains
hang at the windows, and the
well-worn furniture has bright
coats of enamel which were
applied by the teacher's hand.
A colorful rag rug, upon which
sits a rocking chair, decorates
the center of the room, and a
sign on the desk says, "Miss
Judi loves you." It is obvious
for she has transformed a
for she ahs transformed a
drab room into a stimulating
and inviting place for learn-
Not content with just the
provision of a pleasant en-
vironment, Mrs. Lister has
taken special care to provide a
multitude of materials to meet
her students' needs at varying
ability levels, and through her
teaching methods consistently
strives to create opportunities
for each child to meet success.
One of five nominees from
Gulf County Schools, Mrs.
Lister was named Teacher of
the Year by a district-wide
screening committee com-
posed of personnel represent-
ing each school. Wilder stated,
"Selection of the. Gulf County
candidate was a difficult
process, for all the nominees
are outstanding in their par-
ticular fields," Other nomin-
ees included: Mrs. Carol
Kelley, English teacher,
Wewahitchka High School;
Winston Wells, third grade
teacher Highland View Ele-
mentary School; Mrs. Janet
Anderson, second grade
teacher Port St. Joe Elemen-
tary School; and Clarence
Monette, media specialist,
Port St. Joe High School.
The Teacher of the Year
program does not attempt to
single out any individual as
the best teacher but to honor
one who is representative of
all good teachers. From the
county nominations received
by Commissioner of Education
Ralph Turlington, one in-
dividual will be chosen

state's candidate for National

Japanese Now Find Trading Shoe On Other Foot
The Japanese are beginning to feel a
small portion of what America's auto makers
and workers are feeling.
The Japanese are being whipped, soundly,
at the market place by America's aluminum
manufacturers, to the point of dealing the
Japenese aluminum industry a telling blow in
their attempts at production.
It seems American manufacturers are
making aluminum better and cheaper than
the Japanese and they are flooding the
Japanese with American-made aluminum at
the expense of the home industry.
S The Japanese have been horning in on the
-fat of the American automobile industry for
the past three or four years, now, to the point
of causing America's largest single industry
to feel the pinch of enormous losses in revenue
and profits. Also, their tactics of flooding the
American market with Japanese-made cars
has cost the U.S. thousands of jobs in the
In Japan, which boasts of life-time
employment for their industrial workers,
.. nearly a fourth of their aluminum workers
... have lost their jobs. American competitors
are raking the cream off the Japanese
In a sekise, the Americans have turned the
tables on the Japanese, although not to the
extent the Japanese have hobbled the
American auto industry.
So what are the Japanese doing about it?
They are getting together a mission -f high
level representatives to come to the United
States to plead for sympathy from the United
Turning a deaf ear to the requests from
American unions to limit exports of automo-
biles to the United States will not work well for
the Japanese in their efforts to limit our
aluminum exports, we would think.
We think the Japanese have more to
worry about than aluminum. We believe that
within just a short while, they will lose their
recently won designation as the world's
largest auto maker and begin to lose some of
their market to American producers.
While the Japanese have gained no
market with us with their auto production,
there are many Americans who will buy their
product, simply because they think they are
saving a dollar or two. Our automobile will
continue to be American-made so long as
Americans make automobiles.
Americans invented low-cost, quality
production through mass production. We think
their expertise will win out in the long run and
before long, the Japanese will not only be
concerned about competition with their
aluminum production, but their auto industry
will also begin to feel keen, tough competition
from American producers.
We will welcome the day.
Legislature Has Chance to Prove Responsibility
The Florida Legislature is now in session,
and already they are beginning to show
responsibility for their stewardship.
Last week a committee killed an attempt
to lift the state speed limit from 55 to 65 on the
state's interstates and Turnpike.
The 55 mph speed limit has proven its
effectiveness in highway safety, fuel savings
and wear and tear on our already decrepit
Holding our speed to 55 mph in an
automobile designed to cruise at 65 to 70 mph
gets monotonous at times, but results have
proven the speed limit provides more of an
advantage to drivers than it does the
disadvantage of taking our time.
If the Legislature can show the same good
sense on money bills, financing of necessary
services and a lessening of some of the
bureaucracy which interferes with all phases
of our activities in the state, the Legislature
will have served us well.
Tax recommendations have already rear-
ed their heads due to the cut-back of federal
funds. Some state law-makers would hit the
Florida tax payer for funds to replace lost
federal money due to federal cut-backs.
Replacing federal dollars with state dollars
would be no cut-back at all.
Even our state law makers should have
been able to tell by last November's vote that
there is a desire to cut back on expenditures.
We take this to mean on a state and local level,
Removing some of the present state
requirements of local operations would allow W
this tax cut-back to filter down to the local
level as well.
We hope the Legislature keeps these
things in mind as they ponder over their
responsibilities in Tallahassee for the next 60

baseball games of the Atlanta Braves.
The latter reason is why I am using
them in this space this week. I like to
watch baseball. I like to watch the
Braves, even though they haven't
exactly been winners during the past
few years. I was watching the Braves
way back when they were in Milwaukee
and had Warren Spahn on the mound
tossing his hard ball from the port side.
Already, those of us who have the
cable in our homes have been able to
watch the Braves. The channel isn't
officially on the air as yet, but Robert
Newman, owner of Gulf Cable TV has
the channel on the air on channel 9 on
your TV set, trying it out and getting it
ready for viewing by his customers.
Robert says he isn't saying a thing
about the channel as yet, because he is
still adjusting, making repairs, tuning,
etc. "We go off the air sometimes for
hours at a time making adjustments",
Newman said, "and if I get people
expecting to see the ball game on
channel 9 and I have to take the channel
off the air for an adjustment, my phone
will ring off the hook!"
So, if you read this, start watching
Atlanta channel 17 on channel 9 of your
TV set, and the program is interrupted,
please don't call Robert .. or us.
In the meantime, while Robert is
taking two or three weeks to fine tune

was a citrus produing area
and had many talented and
well-to-do people in the area,
trying to introduce citrus into
the area. "They met with
great success until the freeze

Congressman Earl Hutto is
calling on local communities
and Veterans groups nation-
wide to plan for the National
Day of Recognition for Vet-
erans of the Vietnam Era, on
Sunday, April 26, 1981.
: "Both Houses of Congress
:have passed a resolution set-
'ting April 26, as a National
: Day of Recognition for Vet-
erans of the Vietnam Era. I
would hope that, on this day,
communities across the coun-
try would take time to recog-
Snize the efforts of those who
Participated in the Vietnam
!' conflict," Hutto said.
e' "Those who participated in
the Vietnam conflict risked
..their lives to uphold the honor
of our country. We have rarely,
acknowledged their effort and
in fact, many of our Vietnam
veterans feel their problems
have been ignored. It is time
that we not only say "thank
you," but also address the
serious problems which many
of these people now face,"
:* "Our Vietnam veterans de-
serve a solid assessment by
the Federal, State and local
governments, and the U. S.
public at large of their strug-
gle in the areas of unemploy-
*-'. *ment, education, health care,
and social adaptability. We
.:mpe. that these issues and
f problems are addressed in
meetings across the country
f during the week prior ro the
day of recognition. The day
must be used to focus on
solutions to these serious

Public housing has changed

Ware, area public housing
.executive told the Rotary Club
Public housing is nothing
new for the federal govern-
fnent. It got into the business
:back in 1937, with the North-
:west Florida Region authoriz-
.ed and organized in 1941.
.In the 1960's, the program
jbgan to mushroom because
of the diversity of the pro-
gram. During this time the
:'Section 8" program was
introduced. "It was both the
'most fraudulent and one of the
:best programs the govern-
ment has introduced in public
S housing", Ware said. "It
offered housing to those who
really needed it and also had
loopholes which allowed it to
Public housing is available
to-the poor elderly, disabled,
and unmarried with children
as well as the poor", Ware
said. "During the past 17
years, public housing has
changed complexion. While
the program was formerly
predominantly for families,
now the recipients pre pre-
dominantly unmarried fe-
males with children and still
Ware agreed with President
Reagan's opinion that some of
the programs should be put on
hold for a while to allow some
more effective guidelines to be
brought into play.
Ware recommended that
there should be some cleaning
up of the requirements for
public housing to insure hous-
ing for those who actually
need it. He also recommended
that the nation come up with a
definition of family life for
public housing and welfare
In a program in which he
recognized much mis-use,
Ware said the program should:
be administered with honesty,'
fair play and a respect for
dignity and for property on the
part of both parties.

MY TRUE COLORS
108 Mimosa Avenue
Port St. Joe, Florida 32456
Owner: Frances H. Merchant
Now that the balmy spring weather has arrived, Henry
"Jlgs"-Boule has taken his bicycle out of mothballs..He is
now riding his bicycle twice a week from his home in
Apalachicola to Port St. Joe to work. The trip usually takes
about an hour and 45 minutes said Mr. Boule. "It's a great
way to get in shape, lose some weight and feel good, but
riding on the highway is dangerous. I would like to remind
parents to see that their children know the safety rules of
riding their bicycles, with the main emphasis being on riding
on the right side of the road, and using a regulation length
flag on the back of the bike. Drivers have a hard time seeing
bikers, and it is very important that a bright flag be
displayed to let drivers know a biker is on the road," said Mr.
Boule. Star photo

FILLING THE PETROLEUM RESERVE
After the Arab oil embargo
:in 1973, Conigress later
authorized the Strategic
Petroleum Reserve in 1975 as a
- way for us to help maintain our
Soil supply in case of further
disruptions. The ultimate goal
was to have 1 billion barrels of
-oil in storage; 325 million
barrels were to be instorage by
1980 and 500 million by 1982.
Unfortunately, as of March 20,
:there were only 118 million
:barrels in the reserve, which is
:only enough to replace about
:three weeks worth of imported
The plan has been plagued
almost from the start for a
number reasons, one being the
-tremendously increased cost of
oil and another being that for
more than a year, between
S 1979 and 1980, the Carter
administration added no oil to
the reserve at all.
The Department of Energy
: says currently the plan is work-
ing again and oil is being
:pumped into the reserve at an
-annual average of 130,000
barrels a day. The fill rate will
be increased later this year so
that the average for fiscal year
1981 will be 200,000 barrels a
President Reagan's fiscal
year 1982 budget requests $3.8
billion for the SPR but Dave*
Stockman, Director of the Of-,
fice of Management and
Budget, wants to get $3 billion
earmarked for this stockpile
taken out of the budget.
Seven billion dollars was
spent during the 70's for the
reserve and it is estimated that
it will take about an additional
40 billion dollars to finish it.
Some of the leaders in both
the Senate and the House
Budget committees are also
trying to shift this fund out of
the budget, and some Members
of the House are. coming out
with proposals for alternatives.
Senator Nancy Landon
Kassebaum (R-Kan.) has a
plan for the government to
continue purchasing oil for the
reserve through the first
quarter of fiscal year 1982;
-after that companies importing
oil in large amounts would be
required to contribute to the
stockpile. The government
would pay them 10 percent of
the purchase price annually for
.11 years. This would relieve
some of the drain on the
Congressman Phil Gramm
(D-Tex.) has introduced a bill
to sell "oil bonds" to the
public at the going world oil
price. The purchaser would.
receive the proceeds from the
sale of that oil when the reserve
was used. However, there
would be no annual interest
.- The Congressional Budget;
Office has -done a study on
SPR funding and at the present,
time has concluded that prob--
ably the most. efficient method
in the long run is to have the
government pay for it directly.
It is imperative that the oil
reserve continue to be filled
and maintained in order to
help free us from our
dependence on foreign oil.
.However, the problem needs
careful study to arrive at the
best. possible solution for the
Nancy's recipe this week is

Many people in this area do
not seem tobe aware that they
can take care of a great deal of
their business with social
security over the telephone,
David Robinson, Social See-
urity Representative for Gulf
County, said recently.
The best time to call social
security is after the middle of
the month. That is because the
first part of the month is
usually a very busy time. Of
course, if a person has urgent
business, he or she should call
at any time.
The telephone can be used
to: apply for social security or
supplemental security income
payments; apply for Medi-
care; find out how to change
name or address on social
security records; report a lost
or stolen check or delayed
payment; find out how to
replace almost social security or
Medicare card; get help in
filling our Medicare claims
forms; get information about
direct deposit of checks; re-
quest a statement of social
security earnings record; get
help in having claims de-
cisions reviewed; ask any
question about social security
or obtain a free publication.

The typical pomp and cir-
cumstances of the opening
session is now over and the
serious business of law
making has begun. While we
have not considered any high-
ly controversial bills at this
point, there are several issues
which I feel will be most
important during the next nine
weeks. As the session pro-
. gresses I will discuss these
issues with you through my
weekly news letter.
The main issue both my
staff and I will be studying
very closely is the revision of
the State's Juvenile Justice
Code. The Speaker of the
House of Representatives,
Ralph Haben (D-Palmetto),
has created a new select
committee for the revision of
the juvenile code and we will
be watching their progress
I believe that we legislators
need to take the responsibility
of adopting a juvenile code
that will help our young people
to understand that they must
conform to society rather
than letting them believe that
they can do what they want in
our free society.
We must let our potential
young offenders know that
they must also work within the
framework of our democratic
society, or else suffer the
consequences of breaking the
law. To do this, I sincerely
believe we must put some
teeth back into our juvenile
laws, rather than to contin-
ually pass laws that simply
provide a mild slap on the
