"We don't anticipate any
problems", Wilder said. The
Board has kept close watch on
the building as it went up and
expect the final inspection to
be pretty much routine.
The Board also received
bids Tuesday on the removal
of the asbestos fiber materials
used in the building construc-

county. The asbestos has
mainly been used in inside

The District received an
order from the State Depart-

that the material would be
removed and replaced. The
State will furnish a grant to
remove the offending mater-

with an acceptable substance
at their own expense.
Gulf County schools have
some 125,000 square feet of the
material to be removed, most-
ly in the two high schools.
Wilder said the Board was
surprised at the bids received
Tuesday, with the low bid
being $1.60 per square foot.
"We were allowed $3.00 per
square foot by the state for
removal", he said.
Barge Service Firm Wants to
Locate On Intracoastal Canal
For the second time in less
than six months, the Gulf
County Commission has been
approached by a firm wishing
to locate a new industry in
Gulf County, calling for a

ments for a period of 10 years
and asking the County to allow

The new firm, Port Services
Corporation, would be a spin-
off from the coal unloading
facility of Material Transfer,
Inc., which is scheduled to
begin construction around the
first of the year.
Representing the firm be-
fore the Board Tuesday, was
William E. Harris, president
of the new firm, who said the
new company would be in the
business of repairing barges
and tugboats using the Intra-
coastal Waterway, primarily
barges bringing coal to the
new Port St. Joe plant and to
Florida Power Corporation in
Harris said the firm had
tentative plans to also get into
barge construction in the
Harris said the firm had an
option on 52& acres of land
near White City, on the Intra-
,coastal Canal and would ei-
ther locate in Gulf County or
in some adjoining county. He
left no doubt that the granting
or rejection of a tax -relief
exemption by the county
would play a major part in
where his firm located.
"We would prefer to locate
in Gulf County", Harris said.
The firm 'has an option on
what is known as the "Oscar
Roberts property" adjoining
the Canal on the south .side of
Harris said the firm would
employ about 40 people
initially and would enlarge as
the demand for their services
Harris said, the coal facility
here in Port St. Joe is going to
generate a lot of traffic on the
Waterway and they are going
to need services, storage,
repairs, etc., and we plan to be
able to give it.
The Commission looked
with favor on Harris' request
which would freeze the tax-
able valuation of the property
in question at its present level
for the next 10 years.
Commissioner Doug Bir-
mingham said, "We don't
want to rush into this thing,
even though I know we all
want to cooperate with this
firm." Birmingham- then
made a motion that the Board
defer any action on the
request until their first meet-
ing in January, which will be
January 12, to allow for any
public input which might be.
Harris was agreeable to
Birmingham's motion saying,
"We want to be good neigh-
bors in Gulf County and we
would want the county and its
people to be satisfied with us.'
Harris gave no indication'as
to how much was involved in
the facility other than to say,

Supervisor of Elections,
Cora Sue Robinson told the
Gulf County Commission
Tuesday, she is preparing to
purge some 900 names from
the county voting rolls.
Robinson said she had sent
out re-registration notices to
a number of names of people
who hadn't voted recently and
still had over 900 who had not
returned the re-registration
cards. "The law says I must
cut these off the lists", she
said, "unless we hear some-
thing from them soon."
Mrs. Robinson said there
are presently some 7,000 re-
gistered, voters in the county.
The Commission agreed to
authorize publication of the
names of those who will be
removed from the voter regis-
tration list, in an attempt to
get them to come in if they are
still residents of the county.

Letters to the Editor
Taylor Says Fans Have Offered Outstanding Support
I would like to take this
opportunity to express my
gratitude to the people of Port
St. Joe who have offered their
outstanding support to our
football program during my
seventeen years as Head
Coach and Athletic Director.
As you know, I have resign-
ed my position, but I will
always cherish these years
that I have worked with our
sons. They are some of the
finest young men in America
today. I feel that our program
with the tremendous support
of the parents and the entire
community, has been a worth-
while experience for those
A good football program is
an excellent educational op-
portunity, and is one of the few
remaining schools of disci-
pline and hard work in today's
society. It is worthy of our
support and I solicit your
continued help for the athletic
programs at Port St. Joe High
There would not be enough
room for me to say Thank You
to everyone who has given of
their time, their talents and
their encouragement through
the years. So, I will just say-
I have loved it, and I sincerely
thank you all.

America's decline was the preoccupa-
tion of management to turn a profit

If greediness on the part of the

That's going to be a hard order to
fill, but I firmly believe it must be done
or we are in for some deep trouble.
Take a walk up the aisles. Look at the
labels and see just how many of the
articles you see on sale are made in
One of the most blatant of foreign
take-overs in production has been in
electronics. It is my information from
electronics people that hardly any of
these items are made in the United
States any longer. The United States
developed the radio, television, the
transistor and most other innovations
in today's electronics, but making the
money from these inventions has been
almost solely taken over by other
If you take that trip up the aisle, I
believe you will be hard pressed to find
at least half of the items available,
made in America.
CAMERA EQUIPMENT is another
case in point. Just a few years ago
Americans made several top line
cameras. Just recently, we purchased a
new camera here at The Star and
before making the purchase, we
gleaned the camera catalogs diligently,
hunting for a good camera which was
made in these United States.
There were none.
There are several cameras produc-
ed in the United States, primarily the
instant picture variety, but we were
hunting a first line camera which used
film and could find not one.
This is an ironic situation, because
the American manufacturers still make
the best film to go in these cameras and
developed all the systems which are
built into a good camera.
It bothered me, because I have
always insisted that what we purchase
here at The Star be made in America.
When purchasing this new camera
came up, we had to deviate from that
policy and it made me more than a little
AMERICANS HAVE ALWAYS ri-
sen to the occasion when it was
necessary, to come out on top in almost
every endeavor of marketing through-
out the world. American goods are still
in demand, especially of products made
several years ago. I read recently
where American autos, vintage 1950's
and 1960's are still running and being
used in some countries and are prized
Now, I am anxiously looking for the
day when Americans will once again
begin to think of the future of their
country when they deal for contracts,
go on the job and set company policy, so
we can once again get this most
generous of nations back in the driver's
seat in the world economy.

indifferent to the Christian
Since France and the United
States have been allies in-
several wars and since France
is known as a Catholic nation,
Cox's statement was a sur-
prise to the Kiwanians.
'Cox went on to say that the
nation is now largely com-
munistic, with its education
system largely communistic
in its thinking. "The Catholic
church now considers France
a mission field", Cox stated.
The missionary pointed out
that his family faced two
major barriers when they went
to France as missionaries.
"We had to master the lan-
guage and we had to under-
stand the social attitude of the
Frenchman", he said. Cox
said the French are very
proud of their language and
they will not tolerate one who
can't speak it well. "You have
to learn to do better than just-
'get by' he said.
Cox said that after spending
11 years in France, his chil-
dren had to learn to speak
English when they came back
to the United States.
Cox spoke well of the public
systems in France. The trains
are fast -and efficient. They
run on time. When they are
working, they work very well.
When the workers are on
strike, which they often are,
they don't work .at all. The
same situation held true for
other public services. The
speaker said that often one
could take a train from one
point to another and arrive at
his destination before he could
Cox said France is still a
Catholic nation. "nearly 80
percent of the nation are
Catholic, but they are very
indifferent to the church. Only
about four percent go to
church with any regularity.
France is a nation of some of
the most beautiful churches in
the world, but they are

The members of the St.
Joseph Historical Society
learned recently through a
letter to Mrs. R. H. Brinson
from Miss DeeAnn Cofield,
Assistant Administrator of the
Northwest Regional Library
in Panama City, that the
society had inherited 146
copies of a History of Old St.
Joseph written by one of its
earliest members, Louise
Porter of Port St. Joe, now
deceased. Mrs. Porter's book,
entitled "Lives of Old St.
Joseph", was published in 1975
by the society, and 500 copies
were sold to Mrs. Jane Patton,
who was Director of the
Northwest Regional Library
System until her death in 1980.
The books were a part of the
Patton Estate, and had been
willed to the society. The
author was a charter member
and president of the society
for the first five years.
In the absence of the presi-
dent, Mrs.. James McNeill,
Jesse Stone presided over the
December meeting. The big
business of the day was the
election of officers as follows:
Wayne Childers, president;
Jesse Stone, Vice-President;
Mrs. Wm. Howell, Jr., Re-
cording Secretary; Mrs.

These officers will be installed

Make Christmas Tree
Last Thru Holidays
By Roy Lee Carter County Extension Director
If you plan to have a natural
Christmas tree this year, it's
important that you know how
to keep it in good condition
throughout the Holiday seas-
on. If you buy the tree early,
and then don't take care of it,
you may end up having to buy
another one before the Christ-
mas season isover.
Regardless of the type of
tree you choose- a Fir, a
pine, a spruce or Florida's
Red Cedar,- it's most im-
portant to buy a fresh tree.
Decide in advance where
you'll display the tree, so
you'll know exactly what size
tree you need. If you plan to
put the tree in a corner or
against a wall, you might buy
a tree with a bad side, and
save a few dollars.
It's important to shop at a
Christmas tree lot where the
trees are displayed well, so
you can really see what you're
getting for your money. Once
you find a fresh tree with the
right size and shape, you need.
to know how to take care of it
properly. My information on
the care for Christmas trees
was provided by Extension
.Urban Horticulture specialist
Dr. Robert Black, of the
University of Florida.
. If you buy your tree several
days before you plan to set it
up, store it outside. Cut the
tree stump at a diagonal about
one inch above the original
cut, and place the tree in a
container of water in a shady,
cool place. When you bring the
tree inside, saw the stump
again, this time squaring off
the diagonal. This creates a
fresh wound which helps the
tree take up water through the
stump. Now, place the tree in
a stand that holds water, and
keep it filled at all times. It's
surprising how quickly a good
sized tree can take up a quart
or so of water. So, check the
water level at least once a.
Place the tree in the coolest
part of the room. Keep it away
from things like fireplaces,
radiators, air ducts and even
the T.V. set. The heat from
these can cause the Christmas
tree needlessly to dry out and
drop off very quickly.
Some safety precautions
you should follow with regard
to lights on your Christmas
tree, never use candles or
anything with an open flame
on or near the tree. If you're
using electric lights, check
them over very carefully for
loose connections and worn
Don't overload your electri-
cal circuits, and always turn
the lights off when you leave
the house or go to bed.
Buying and caring for your
Christmas tree may not be the
weightiest problem on your
mind as we move into the
Holiday Season, but if you
plan to have a natural Christ-
mas tree in your home this
year, you'll need to give some
thought to both subjects. Keep
in mind that a fresh tree with
good shape and sturdy branch-
es will usually make the best
tree for displaying and de-
corating. And make sure that
you keep the tree in the coolest
place you can, and that you
water it everyday.

A Venezuelan company, C.A. Cavendes, Sociedad Financiera (Cavendes), has purchased a sub-
stantial block of the stock of Florida National Banks of Florida. As Cavendes has publicly stated,
Cavendes may seek control of your company.
According to Cavendes, any future effort by it to seek control of Florida National might be facilitated
if Florida National's acquisition of Alliance Corporation is not consummated. Cavendes now seeks
to block the acquisition of Alliance,

Q What is the 'Florida National Banks
of Florida Shareholders Committee'?
SThe 'shareholders committee' consists of only
one shareholder-C.A. Cavendes, Sociedad
Financier. Your management does not believe
that this 'committee' of one shareholder repre-
sents the interests of all shareholders.
Q what is C.A. Cavendes, Sociedad
C.A. Cavendes, Sociedad Financiera is a
Venezuelan company comprised of diversified
business interests primarily located in South
America. These interests include finance and
banking; automotive parts and assembly; hotel
construction; meat processing; and -tractor
manufacturing. Cavendes has no experience.
In banking either In Florida or elsewhere in
the United States.
QWhy does Cavendes want to thwart
the Alliance acquisition?
In its own words, Covendes has purchased
shares of Florida National Banks "with a possible
view to seeking control of the company." You
should also know that Covendes has publicly
stated that, if the Alliance acquisition is not
consummated, any future effort by it to seek
control of your company "might be facilitated."
You should ask yourself "If Cavendes succeeds
in gaining control of Florida National, what
would be the consequences for Florida
National and Its shareholders?"
Q What would be the possible conse-
quences If, as a result of Cavendes'
actions, Florida National terminated its
acquisition contract with Alliance?
Alliance Corporation has notified Florida
National that, in the case of unilateral termina-
tion of the acquisition contract by Florida
National, "Alliance would seek appropriate
legal redress for any breach of the merger
agreement with Florida National, including
damages fully commensurate with the injury
to Alliance as a result of such breach."
Your management believes that termination by
Florida National of its acquisition contract with
Alliance Corporation would result in legal
action against your company and, therefore,
would subject Florida National to the risk of
incurring millions of dollars of liabilities. Your
management would dispute such claims, but
litigation always involves substantial uncertan-
ties and inevitable legal expenses.
Furthermore, termination of that contract could,
in the opinion of management, call into ques-
tion Florida National's credibility with other
companies with which it does business.
How does Chemical view the Alliance
Chemical New York Corporation has entered
into an agreement in principle with Florida,
National, whereby'Chemical would acquire a
substantial equity interest in Florida National, to
be followed by a merger of the two companies
if interstate banking becomes permissible. Your
board and management strongly support
this agreement, which depends, among other
things, upon Cavendes selling its Florida
National stock to Chemical.
Chemical has advised Florida National that
Chemical views the Alliance acquisition with
favor, in light of the additional breadth that the
acquisition will bring to Florida National's busi-
ness. Your board and management entered
into the agreement in principle with Chem-
ical believing that It is in the best Interests
of all shareholders.
WE URGE YOU TO SUPPORT YOUR BOARD AND MANAGEMENT. CAVENDES CANNOT SUCCEED AT THE
SPECIAL SHAREHOLDERS MEETING SCHEDULED FOR DECEMBER 17,1981 IF A QUORUM IS NOT PRESENT.
YOUR BOARD OF DIRECTORS URGES THAT YOU SIGN, DATE AND RETURN THE WHITE PROXY CARD
