And Tuesday morning, vandals
caused power in Port It. Jow. to be
shut off a good part of the morn-
ing. Somebody went to work on
.the Florida Power Corporation sub-
station with a rifle and damaged
that installation so that power fail-
ure resulted. And of course, it cost
the power company a pretty penny
to put the station back into opera-
ition. A cost that is figured in on
the cost of your light bill.
And while we're complaining,
we will complain on the matter of
the Legislature thinking of putting
more taxes on automobiles. We
were surprised to learn that auto-
mobiles and automobile services
account for nearly 41% of the total
amount of taxes taken in by the
,State of Florida.
The proposed sales tax on auto
calls to mind the old adage about
riding a -good horse to death and
the straw that broke the camels'
back. Approximately one third of
the cost of an automobile now is
taxes and we believe that any more
taxes on this commodity would be
just too much of a good thing.
While automobiles and candy are
luxuries, too many taxes will make
the .buying public sick 'just like too
much candy will make the consum-
ing public sick.
Back to the lighter side.
In the opening game of the Lit-

Mayor Sharit reared back to throw
the first pitch. Peek Boyer, up in
the stands yelled for the catcher
to grab it on the second bounce.
Mayor Sharit surprised 'Peck by
getting the ball to the catcher )n
just ONE bounce. The Mayor prov-
ed that he was worth more as a
fielder later in the game when he
caught a pop foul in the stands--
before it hit the ground.

duced Tuesday in the House of
Introducing the bill wer*"' Rei,
Cecil G. Costin, Jr., Gulf; Rep. Ea-
win H. Peters, iCalhoun and Rep.
J. iS. Alexander. Bristol,
The bill said me lakes are known
as one of the "best sports' fishing
lakes in. the country" and also aid
agricultural and honey production
in the surrounding atea.
According to the introducers the
water level is ."dangerously -low"
because of dams recently built on
the Apalachicola and Chipola Ri-
vers and lack of rainfall.
Because of the low water level,
mosquitoes breed and fish die and
decay from lack of sufficient wa
ter, the bill said.
None of the money appropriated
could be spent until an equal sam
is available by counties or any spec-
ial district- established to control
the water level on the lakes.'
Construction of the dam would
be under the joint supervision of
the local agencies, the State Game
and Fresh Water Fish Commission
and the U. S. Corps of Engineers,
