that the roads could be paved un-
der the issue. He pointed out that
if the roads were not paved under
the issue, costly assessments would
have to be born by citizens to re-
pave city streets.
City Attorney Cecil G. Costin, Jr.,
took the floor briefly to report that
district Road Chairman James Nel-
son of Pensacola had denied the
County the right to include the
City Roads in the bond issue. He
stated that he had assurances
from the Road Department that
the streets could be paved. He said
that Nelson was still sticking by
the limitations of secondary road
funds to connecting links and farm
to market roads. "The definition of
a connecting link is very vague",
said Costin. Costin said that all
Nelson wanted was an assurance
that the program was legal before
giving it his stamp of approval. "If
the proposed roads are included in
the program, the Development Com-

Flower Show Plans
The Port St. Joe Garden Club is
planning its Flower Show well in
advance of the show dates which
have been set for April 19 and 20.
All plant material, whether in
pots or grown outdoors must have
been grown by the exhibitor at
least sixty days preferably ninety
days before the show. This gives
you a chance to have your plants
or specimen in blue ribbon condi-
tion. All sign of insect damage, dirt
or spray material should be remov-
ed from plants and blossoms and
foliage specimen material before
exhibiting. This adds to the ap-
pearance of your display and the
overall beauty and quality of the
show. So let's have the entire show
in clean tip top shape for 1958.

THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla. THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 1958
The time has come again for the people of Port St. Joe to
stand up for their needs. The County Commission is meeting
in Port St. Joe tonight at 7:30 P.M. at the City Hall to ascertain
"What the people of Port St. Joe want" insofar as the proposed
County Road construction bond issue is concerned.
Let us pause right here and say that we are in favor of a
bond issue. As it now appears, in a few years the state will do
away with secondary road payments for construction of County
road construction. If Gulf County has their funds tied up partly
in a bond issue, the state will be obligated to pay them off -- and
Gulf County and Port St. Joe will have paved streets.
The Commissioners have been given many opinions as to
what they can and cannot spend their state secondary road funds
for in the way of roads. Some opinions say they can spend the
funds in any way or anywhere they desire -- even inside the
limits of incorporated cities. Some say they must be limited as
their road construction plans may not include any road except
farm to market roads or highway connecting links. Gulf County
has very, very few farm to market roads. The sources of informa-
tion for both arguments are impressive for their being in a posi-
tion to know which is right and which is wrong. Why the dif-
ferences of opinion we do not know. Perhaps, as someone
has said, nobody has gone to the trouble to test the law and see
just which opinion is right.
As was reported in this paper several weeks ago the Com-
missioners were going along with the advice that they could
not construct roads within the city limits. Contrary to our edi-
torial of some three weeks ago -- they were acting on what they
thought to be sound advice. And perhaps the advisor thought
Later opinions from the Road Board, the Governor and
the Attojney General of the State of Florida now offer the opinion
that the County CAN build the roads in the .city. The former
opinions offered the County also came from high up offices so
one can easily see their delima.
Tuesday, the Chamber of Commerce unanimously offered
the resolution printed on page one of this issue to the Board. The
Chamber members (tax-payers all) urged the adoption of the
roads listed for the bond issue. The County still is not sure -of
who is right and is reluctant for the matter to go to the Supreme
Court if they are wrong.
Our City Commission and,the Chamber of Commerce is
urging that the County test this law. There would be no cost
to the county in the testing.
Now, where you the citizen fit into the picture, is that the
County Board will meet tonight in Port St. Joe to hear your
wishes in the matter.
.This newspaper urges that you attend and make your
This newspaper urges that you stand behind the City
Commission and the Chamber of Commerce in asking that every
street in Port St. Joe be included in this bond issue for resurfac-
ing and paving.
There is no need to point out to you that all the streets in
Port St. Joe need paving. The only other way to do it is through
property assessment. This means of paving financing would
cost property owners approximately $90.00 to $100.00 cold hard
cash out of the property owner's pocket for every lot he owned.
So you see, it is to your advantage to see that this matter is
carried out as the City Commission desires. Your presence to-
night will help you and your City.

The missionary, who first went
out to the Congo in 1925, reports
that his work involves such diverse
activities as supervising mainten-

work of the mission, and maintain-

cords. During the year prior to his
return on furlough, Mr. Watt was
acting secretary and treasurer for
the entire Congo misison of the
Presbyterian Church, with more
than 170 missionaries and hundreds
of Congolese workers.
Mr. Watt and his wife, the for-
mer Miss Geongia McKay of Ameri-
cus and Thomasville, Georgia, have
spent approximately 25 years in the
Congo. For a period from 1938 to
1947 for health reasons they were
not on the field, and during that
period Mr. Watt was in the whole-

I have noticed with great interest
the Church Crusade that is now in
progress here in Port St. Joe. The
figures that have appeared in your
newspaper show that all churches
have increased their attendance.
This Crusade is of more impor-
tance than some people realize.
This program is conducted by lay-
men of the churches. Men who
stand out in front of the masses
and l'et people know they are men
of God, men who are not ashamed
of the part they take in religious
activities are to be admired.
In times such as these we must
return to our Maker for that feel-
ing we cannot get through material
things. Security in old age is not
the only objective of life. We must
prepare in this short stay on earth
for the life beyond the grave.
I want to express my thanks to
you for supporting this program
arid having a large part in making
it a success.
The American Legion has a pro-
gram called "Back To God" in which
we try to show our relation to God
and country. We of the American
Legion believe if we are in line
with God, our country will continue
to be the greatest country on the
face of this earth.

Greetings to friends in the
This is being written from'Mount
Airy, N. C. (the Granita City)
where I stopped overnight to say
howdy to the two people response
ble for my being in this world. My
father (past 88 years), my mother
(past 81) are both perky and heal-
thy, going about the days work
about as usual with less speed than
'50 years ago. Mom still mixes the
groceries well and I'm eating al-
most as high on the hog as I did
at home in old Joe. Speaking of
eating here's a special lunch menu:
Before yo suatrt on a trip, lay your
hand on your wife's shoulder, look
her straight in the eye, (sorta like
you did before you married her)
speak softly but firmly ask
her to hustle up two or three assort-
ed home style, St. Joe sandwiches
and slip a couple slices fresh, home
made cake in the sack put it
right in the seat beside you and
when you're a couple hundred miles
up the country and stopping to gas
up, git you a quart of cold milk .
unlax, rear back and put the chin
slippers to work methinks it's
'better than a Waldorf-Astoria
menu! (Can you imagine a dry
goods merchant trying to sell
lunch menus?) ,
Will you bear with me while I
mention two or three highlights in
addition to the best one of being
home with fl molks in St. Joe My
face is red as I admit visiting -the
St. Joe museum for the first time,
.a small, but most interesting and
entertaining spot. Mrs. Eunice
Brinson, the pleasant and capable
hostess is interested in her work
and most helpful. St. Joe can be
rightfully proud of this historic at-
traction ... it's worth your while
to muse awhile there Had a 'as-
ual chat with Mayor Sharit that
left this sort of feeling in me: "St.
Joe, the light is green turn on
the steam and let's go". It's my
opinion that our little city will
continue to move forward accord-
ing to the amount of loyalty, devo-
tion and plain hard work necessary
to make progress anyplace. Sun-
day afternoon had a pleasant drive
out to Indian Pass Beach and a
cup of coffee with Mrs. J. T. Mc-
Neill and J. 0. Bragdon in Miss
Gypsy's cozy cottage by the sea.
The years have slowed Mrs. Mac
down (as well as the rest of us)
but she's still her smiling, humor-
ous self and there's rest and peace
out there. Got a little low down on
the seafood business from J. 0.
Would it be in order to say that
Indian Pass, quaint and interesting,
is another one of St. Joe's assets
and attractions along with St. Joe
Beach, Beacon Hill and Mexico
Just as I was leaving town bump-
ed into W. C. Forehand of Highland
View. W. C. at 92 is going about
his business as usual. It does some-
thing to one just to shake the hand
of a guy like that (one asks ones'
self: "Reckon I've got a chance?")
We can be proud of our neighbor,
Highland View. Hardworking, for-
ward-looking folks are on the move

Costin also pointed out that the
Road Board would meet in Lake
City on February 15 and the Coun-
ty's request would be taken up at
that time if it is presented to the
Commissioner Bob Ellzey spoke
briefly pointing out the need as
far as population, for the roads in
Port St. Joe, using as an example
a proposed road to the Jones
Homestead Area which would serve
approximately six families.
Sharit again took the floor and
reported that of the proposed mil-
lion dollar bond .issue, $590,188.00
would be needed to resurface all
the streets in Port St. Joe. He
urged that the Chamber adopt a
Resolution to the County Commis-
sion to urge them to repave all the
streets in the city.
George G. Tapper made the mo-
tion that the resolution be present-
ed stressing that the County Com-
mission was in sympathy with Port
St. Joe's interest in the project and
that the legality of the matter was
all that was holding it back. He
told the group that the resolution
would show the group's backing of
the Commission in testing the le-
gality of the city paving.
The Chamber voted unanimously
to adopt the resolution.
