City Tells Engineer to Stagger WWP Work

ates were informed by the
Commission Tuesday night.
they would have to stagger
calls for bids for the several
projects so the City would
have the money to pay for
their performance as soon as
they were done.
Some five projects are in-
volved which will cost the City
an estimated $2 million or
more to perform renovations
or new construction at the
plant which has been directed
by the state's Department of
Environmental Regulation as
a requirement for obtaining
an operating permit.
, The engineers have also
approached the City with the
idea of getting effluent re-
quirements relaxed by DER,
which would greatly relieve
the City of programs needed to

originally scheduled to be

projects for the plant renova-

City Approves Housing Program
The City Commission gave its
approval Tuesday night for the Depart-
ment of Community Affairs to perform
a program of rehabilitation of sub-
standard rental property in Port St.
E. Hugh Kelly, Jr., a housing
program assistant with the agency, told
the Commission they were prepared to
renovate up to 14 units in the City of
Port St. Joe on a first-come first-served
basis. Kelly pointed out the housing
would have to meet their criteria and be
refurbished, to their specifications
before a unit would be approved.
Kelly had a program outlined
which'would renovate 14 units occupied
by non-elderly citizens and none for
those citizens who are elderly, handi-
capped or disabled. In giving its
approval, the City specified that at
least four of the units must be for the.,
elderly, handicapped or disabled. Kelly
agreed to the requirement.
REPAIRS RENTAL PROPERTY
The program is specifically design-
ed to provide incentive for repairing
housing currently being rented by
tenants, but sub-standard so far as
living conditions are concerned.
Kelly said the program would
require the property owner to provide
his own funds or borrow funds for
.renovation. The program would then
make the mortgage payments, or
re-pay the land owner if he puts up his
own money. The agency would also pay
for upkeep and taxes which were
generated by the improved property. .,
The property owner would be
responsible only for the iniative involv- '
ed in getting the program started on his
property and making the loan. His loan
payments would be mrade and guaran. : -
teed by the agency.
The tenant of the improved proper -
ty may or may not have his rent
increased after the property is improve
ed. "There have been instances where :.
we paid the tenant to live in a particular'
house", Kelly said.
After renovation, the tenant has his
rent adjusted to 30 percent of his gross

When you go to crowding three
days of work into two with the same
number of people used to do it in three,
the cheese gets binding at times.
Naturally this piece is written
before we get finished with the paper.
Even so, I have faith the paper will get
to you right on time, regardless of when
the holiday falls. We'll manage, but it
won't be easy.
ONE OF THE things I missed last
week was publication of Veterans'
Service Officer Fred Kleeb's letter
calling for his office to be cut back
because it wasn't needed.
Remembering that Fred appeared
before the Commission two years ago to
protest the hiring of a secretary for his
office because he didn't need it, we felt
sure Fred was sincere in his suggestion
that his office hours (and presumably
his pay) be cut in half.
It never crossed my mind his letter
was a political dirty trick like some
others have assumed it was.
If it was a dirty trick, I wasn't going
to be any part of it by publishing the
letter at that most disadvantageous
time. If it wasn't a dirty trick and, as I
first believed, Fred was sincere,
another week before printing the letter
wouldn't hurt anything.
That's why Fred's letter wasn't in
last week's paper.
If Fred was sincere in his request,
he has had at least three years to
appear before the Commission and
make the request in public, which
would have been the proper and
prudent thing to do. He. appeared in'
public to oppose the hiring of a
secretary when a group was intent on
forcing the County Commission to hire
him one. He made that protest where it
should have been made.
I wonder why this latest protest
didn't go through that proper forum?

THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla. THURSDAY, Sept. 9, 1982
Mr. and Mrs. Harry L. Ford have
been living in Port St. Joe for almost
thirty years. They reside at 1019
| Woodward Avenue and have lived at
That address since moving here from
Apalachicola in 1953.
Mrs. Ford was the former Clifford
Morgan. In 1926 she met and two years
Slater married Mr. Ford..Mr. Ford had
'just accepted a job with the Apalachi-
cola Northern Railroad in Telogia, and
was looking for a place to stay. Mrs.
-Ford's mother, Mrs. Morgan, just
happened to run the only hotel in
Telogia and if was there that they met
and two years later they were married.
They hav een happily married since.
Folks, they have now:been married for
fifty-five years; that's longer than a lot
:of us live. They speak well for the
institution of matrimony.
S Mrs. Ford is a native of Florida, born
and raised in Bristol. Mr. Ford,
however, was born and reared in TyTy,
Georgia. Now TyTy is close to Moultrie
and not far from Tifton and just a short
piece from Sylvester- but it's closer to
Tifton. Mr. Ford said, "If you don't
know where TyTy is, you are not from
Georgia!" We know where it is now,
Mr. Ford, and we are awfully proud
that you don't still live in TyTy.
The Fords lived in Telogia until 1936
when Mr. Ford was transferred to
Apalachicola. They resided there until
1953 when he was again transferred to
Port St. Joe. In 1971, Mr. Ford retired at
the ripe young age of sixty-eight. That
makes his age seventy-nine and he
looks like he's about sixty-five. Mr.
Ford is proud of his age and has every
'right to be., He is still active with his
hobbies, golf, riding his bicycle and
fishing. The author is purchasing his
Western Flyer tomorrow!
Mrs. Ford is retired from the St.
Joseph Telephone and Telegraph Com-
pany and keeps busy cooking and with
her favorite pastime, doing church
-work. They are both members of the

The Fords have one son, Tom, who is
a Vice President with St. Joe Paper
Company. They 'express great pride in
their son and his family, and rightly so!
The Tom Ford family is one of our most
outstanding and distinguished families.
It's trite, but true, "Like father, like
son!" We're sure Tom is equally proud
of his wonderful mother and father.
Mr. and Mrs. Ford consider them-r
selves fortunate to live in a town like
Port St. Joe. It is, however, the town
that is fortunate to have such wonderful
citizens as the Fords. They have given
so much, it is unlikely we can repay
There is one thing we can do. We can
all say top the Fords, "You are
wonderful, cordial 'and inspiring
people. We are extremely proud to have
you for friends and neighbors. May God
bless and keep you and may happiness
remain with you forever."

called "Steps to Starting A

ment counsels youth who get
into trouble with the law or are
abused dependents, helping
them to straighten out their
lives. Bozeman said the em-'
phasis was on help rather than
incarceration, although the
department doesn't hesitate to
send a youthful offender to a
state institution' when his.
situation warrants it:.
Bozeman said :his depart-
ment had handled some 101.
cases thus far this year, with
mostly boys involved in the'
kind of trouble which attracts
the attention of the law
enforcement and his depart-
ment. "Very few' of our.
offenders are girls", he said.
Bozeman said the goal of his
department is to try to get a
child back into the system
with as little problem as
possible and preferably with-.
out a record if it can be.
Band Sends Out Call
For Missing Uiniform
Port St. Joe High School's "Band of Gold" is short of
uniforms. As a matter of fact, band director, Mr. Land,
says the situation is such that some of the band members
cannot be fitted out for the band's first appearance of the
season Friday night.
The band had new uniforms purchased just recently,
but some members have not turned them in from their
association with last year's band.
Director Land urges that parents of students who'
were band members last year and who have not turned
in their uniforms, please call the school office and advise
the band department.
At the last uniform purchase, two years ago, 100
uniforms were purchased. There are presently uniforms
for only 53 members of the marching band. The
remainder of the uniforms are hanging in someone's
closet and the band master would like to have them
turned in so the present band members may be outfitted.

the bill including: the increase of
aviation fuel lax from 4 cents a
S gallon to 12 cents a gallon; the
increase in the federal telephone
tax from Io to 307; and the in-
-: crease of tax on airline
passenger tickets from 501 to
Although I did not concur
with the Administraton on this
measure, I look forward to
working with the President to
reduce federal spending.
Ultimately, economic prosper-
ity will be brought about
through a smaller federal
government in Washington and
not increased taxation. I know
the President will agree with me
on this point.

Traffic deaths and injuries
have declined during the first
seven months of 1982 said the
Florida Highway Patrol re-
Lt. Colonel Roger C. Collar,
acting.director of' the Patrol
said, "There were 197 fewer
traffic deaths in Florida dur-
ing the period January 1
through August 24, 1982, com-
pared to the same period last
year. Injuries in traffic acci-
dents so far this year have
also decreased significantly."
The Patrol's preliminary
records show that 1,777 per-
sons died in traffic accidents
in Florida from January 1
through August 24 this year
compared to 1,974 traffic
deaths for the same period in
1981 and 1,750 in 1980. These
records indicate that there
have been 122,168 injuries
during this same period this
year compared to 129,045 to
