"Port St. Joe-The Outlet Port for the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee Valley"
THURSDAY, JUNE ?5, 1959
,ORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA
by WE LEY R. RAMSEY
You remember we were discuss-
ing several weeks ago as to just
.what drastic effects fishing had nn
We now have two more typical
cases to discuss.
George Wimberly, Jr., threw his
boy Mike in the back seat of his
car the other day, hooked up his
.big boat and headed for Indian
Pass to do a little fishing. He stop-
ped at Preanell's to get some live
shrimp for bait and noticed that
he had forgotten his rod and reel.
So, back to town came George af-
ter his rod and -reel Then back
to Indian Pass all primed to catch
some big ones to take the prize ix
the St. Joe Boat Club's Fishing RIo-
deo. George got to the Pass,' unload-.
ed his boat in the watdr, transferred
all his tackle-and Mike-to the.
boat and hopped in to take off.
m But-here George came to a sud-
den halt. He had forgotten the ig-
nition key to his boat.
But, this was one of George's
Just a few days later he unload-
ed at the St. Joe Boat Club's new
basin and headed out into the-Bay
to go fishing. Either on his way
out or on his way back in, he hit
a log going wide open and knocked
a new 50 horse Evinrude off the
back of his boat down into the
briny deep where it was to rest
for the rest-of its days.
And .till George is ready to go
fishing ,at most any opportunity.
BAD WEATHER CAUSES CHANGE
Boat Club Extends Annual Fishing Rodeo
To July 17 To Obtain More Entrants
Commodore John Robert Smith of the St. Joe Boat Club, this
week announced that the final day of the Club's current Fishing
Rodeo has been postponed to July 17. -Smith said that the Club
decided on this move due to the recent bad weather that has kept
anglers from catching entries ever since the first day of the Rodeo.
Smith said that the bad weather had curtailed fishing in
both salt and fresh water categories. While some entries have been
turned, Smith states that had good weather been enjoyed during
.this period, the entries would be many times mor ethan what they
are. Smith said.that since such an- array of valuable prizes have
been donated for the event, the Club has decided to give everyone
a chance at the prizes.
Along with the completion of the Rodeo, the Boat Club has
planned a big fish fry for the final day of the .Rodeo, at which
time the prizes will be awarded. Entries to the Rodeo are $1.00
and the ticket also is.good for a fish dinner at the fish fry.
Commodore Smith has appointed Club member, 0. C. Ham-
mond to lign up a good water.ski show for the morning of the fish
fry. The ski show will be held at the foot of Fifth Street in the
Bay on July 17, the date of the fish fry.

held in Marianna on Monday night
by the Florida .Game and Fresh Wa-
ter Fish Commission on suggested

Representative Costin asked the
Game Commission to continue the
split dove season so that sports-
men around the Gulf coast area
could continue-to hunt the early
migration of doves along the coast-
al areas during the month of Oc-
tober. Costin stated that this was
the only period that dove.; came
along the beach areas around Gulf
and Franklin Counties and that
dove hunting in Gulf County would
be practically eliminated if the ear-
ly season were eliminated.
There was considerable opposi-
tion to the split dove season in
Jackson, Calhoun and Holmes
Counties, however, the Game Com-
mission in their proposed regula-
tions retained the split dove season.

MINUTES OF THE
June 9, 1959
The Board of County Commis
sioners of Gulf County, Florida
met this date in regular session
with the following members pres
ent: George W. Cooper, Chairman
14. C. Harden, Sr., A. J. Strickland
Coleman W. Tharpe, land G. S
Croxton. The Clerk, Sheriff, At-
torney, Engineer, Road Supt.,
County Service Officer and Super-
visor of Mosquito Control Districi
were also present.
The meeting came to order al
9 o'clock, A. M.
The minutes of May 12 and 26
were read, approved, and adopted.
Mr. M. P. Tomlinson appeared
before the Board and said he was
appearing with Mr. Frank Hannon
-by invitation of the Board to dis-
cuss the insurance program for
the Court House and Jail. He said
that an insurance engineer from
one of his companies had inspec-
ted the Court House and Jail and
had placed an -insurable value of
$200,000 to $225,000. Mr. Frank
Hannon said that a representative
from his company had placed a
a value of $25,000 for contents of
a value of $25,000 for the counts of
the 'buildings; that if the County
decided to set up a new insurance
program of. $200,000 on the build-
ing 'and $25,000 on the contents,
the initial cost would be $2,162.80,
and after the first year it would
cost only $0r2.32 per year; that
Sthe Ounty would receive a refund
Aon it present'insurance in the
amount of $600.00. After discus-
sion .the Board thanked Mr. Tom-
linson and Mr. Hannon for this
information and said that no ac-
tion will be taken at this time,
but that the proposed plan will
be considered when the Board con-
siders its budget.
Mr. H. F. Ayers, County Service
Officer appeared before the Bd.
and aid that he wanted the
County to make a decision with
reference to his employment as
County Service Officer; that he
would like to continue to serve
th that capacity because he was
Already working w i t h the veter-
ans, of Gulf County, which would
make it more convenient for the
veterans and he could do a good
lob as Service Officer because of
his job of teaching the veterans;
that he did not want to cause an
issue over his employment & that
he did not .believe the County vas
breaking the -law by employing
'him. He then told the Board that
-if he could not be retained as
Service Officer, the County should
employ another person in this ca-
pacity because the veterans -of
Gulf County had many benefits
coming to them that a Service
Officer could" assist them with,
that veterans of Gulf County are
being stuck on purchase of new
homes, which, if they could work
through a Veterans Officer, this
would not happen.
The, Board asked the Attorney
to give a ruling on the law with
reference to e to the County employing
a SeFvice' Officer. The Attorney
said the 'law state, that County
Service Officer must be a veteran
who served in the U. S. Armed
Forces during a time of war.
The Board announced that be-
cause of the law in tbh is matter.
Mr. Ayers would be discontinued
as Service Officer effective June
Mr. Ayers told the Board he
would -like to recommend a per-
son who is qualified to serve as
a Veterans Service Officer, a man
who needs the job badly because
he had recently had a heart at-
tack and is unable to do any hard
work and had to- quit his job at
the paper mill because of this. He
then recommended the Rev. J. J.
Hill of Highland View.
Mr. M. P. Tomlinson told the
Board he would like to comment
on something that Mr. Ayers said
in one of his statements to the.
Board and to question Mr.'Ayers
about that statement. Mr. Tomlin-
son said that he would have to
ask this question because he was
in the real estate business in Gulf
County and 'he thought the state-
ment in question was unfair to
the real estate business. He then
asked Mr. Ayers to .explain just
what he meant when he said the
veterans were being stuck to the
tune of about $2,500 when buying
homes. Mr. Ayers answered that
he would remove the figure as to
the exact amount, but the would
say that veterans were being
stuck- on new omes and he could
nrove it if anyone wanted proof.
Rev. J; J. Hil came before the
Board and made application for
County Service Officer and dis-
cussed his qualifications and said
that he would appreciate the Bd's
Comm. E. C. Harden said he had
already talked to Mr. B. H. Dick-
ens about taking the job of Ser-
Nvice Officer; that when he talked
to. Mr. Dickens he did not know
that anyone in the County wanted
the job; that Mr. Dickens hiad a-
greed to take the job at $25.00 per
month for the rest of 'the year.
He then moved that B. H. Dick-
enos be employed County Service
Offiber. Motion was seconded by
Comm. Strickland. This motion
failed. Comm. Tharpe moved that
Rev. J, J. Hill be employed as
County Service Officer. This mo-
tion failed for lack f a second.
Comm. Harden moved that the
County pay Mr. Ayers for his ex-
pense in attending the County
Service Officer's school at Day-
tona Beach, seconded by Comm.
Strickland and, upon vote, was
The Chairman and Comm. Crox-
ton said they wanted more time
to consider the employment of a
new Service Officer.
Mrs. Josle Odum asked the Bd.
for financial aid and told that her
husband is unable to work; that
she gets $76.00 per month from the
State Welfare program, but her
' family cannot live on that amount.
On recommendation of Comm. E.
C. Harden, the Board voted to pay
Mrs. Odum $15.00 from the Indi-
Upon motion of Comm. Hard-
"Your Board of County Com-
missioners have been attempting
to work out a program of pav-
ing. streets and roads throughout
the County for the past two years.
Some months ago a program was
worked out, with the approval of
the State Road Department, for
construction of important roads
in the County and certain streets
in the city of .Port St. Joe, that
would. qualify under the law on
the use of secondary road funds,
of which program is now in the
process of being validated in Tall-
abhassee, but this program left a
number of areas in the County
and city without any paving, and
the Board has endeavored to work
out a 'pio'gramn where these areas'
that would not qualify under the
State program could also be paved
with the 'limited funds that the
County has under our. Road and
"We feel now, that after many
meetings, that we 'have come up
with a program where practically
all of the streets in the Northern
section of Port St. Joe can be
paved, with additional streets be-
ing paved in Highland View, Ward
Ridge, colored cemetery, Jones
Homestead, St. Joe Beach, all the
streets in White City, the River
Road in Wewahitchka, the Coch-
ran Landing Road in Wewahitch-
ka, and the road in the North end
of the County. We feel that this
paving can be accomplished by the
issuing of re venu e certificates
based on'a portion of the surplus
gas tax which is sent directly to
the C o u n t y Commissioners for
use in their Road & Bridge Fund.
Ten per cent of the cost of this
paving would be paid for each
year for ten years.- It is estima-
ted that within/two years the
surplus gas taxmoney coming to
the County will increase enough
to pay these revenue certificates
without any substantial reduction
being made in our Road & Bridge
Fund. We 'feel that this is one of
the finest programs that has been
developed, as these streets and
roads will serve more individuals
people in the County than any.
other program that we have un-
dertaken. It especially would get'
,all the people living in the North-"
ern Section of St. Joe, White City,
and other areas, out of the mud,
ahd permit them in rainy weath-
er to get in and out of their
"If the reaction of the people'
are favorable to this program, it
is our intention to expedite this
program as fast as practical."
The Chairman called for a dis-
cussion on this proposed paving
program ,and invited anyone pres-
ent to come before the Board and
be heard at this time.
Mr. Harry H. Saunders, Vice
President of the St. Joe Paper I
Company, came before the Board
and said 'he would like to .discuss
this proposal; that he was not
speaking for nor against the plan
at this time, but seeking more in-
formation as to what streets and
roads are involved and what it
will cost the taxpayers of G u 1 f
County. The following questions
were asked by Mr. Saunders and
these answers given by the Board,
or its Engineer-to-wit:
Q: How niany miles of roads
will you pave under this plan?
