Few Changes In Mailing Procedure
According to Postmaster Chauncey Costin the local post
office will be a First Class office on July 1, 1960. The class of of-
fice is determined by the amount of postal receipts during the pre-
ceding calendar year ($40,000.00 for First Class) and Costin stat-
ed that receipts reached a total of $51,261.22 of which only $41,-
521.59 were allowable toward advancement because of a provision
in the law which raised postal rates allowing only 81% of receipts
Costin stated that having a First I i-nce, he added that although pat-
Class office would give added pres- rons accepted delivery with enthus-
tige -to -our city in that it would des- iasm there has seldom been a time
ignate our city throughout the na-
tion as cne of good size and much
business activity; however, he em-
phasized 'that there was one disad-
vantage which he wished to call at-
tention to for the benefit of the
mailing public. A First Class office
is not permitted to accept parcels
for mailing to 'another First Class
office which weigh in excess of 20
pounds unless addressed for deliv-
ery on a Star or Rural Route. For-
merly this office could accept and
receive parcels weighing up to 70
'pound's. This regulation; however,
does not apply to parcels ma'.ied
to or from an 'office of less than
the First Class.
Costing said that over a period of
eight years, from 1951 through
1959 he has watched the office con-
,tinue to gain in receipts from a
little over $18,000 to over $51,000
that there were surplus post office
'boxes available at the post office
until occupation of the new postal
facility which has 367 more ,boxes
than the old facility.
Costin remarked that the great-
est advance in postal service for
the city occurred in February of
this year with the occupation of
the new and modern post office
building located on Monument Ave-
nue and Second Street. We now
have one of *the most beautiful
and modern buildings in the coun-
try, with adequate 'parking facili-
ties for patrons and central heat
and air conditioning lends for com-
fort for both patrons and employ
Co-stin said that he and the em-
ployees are proud of the 'progress
and advancements that have been
mad in postal facilities and opera-
which represents nearly a 300% tion during the past few years 'and
gain. that they would ever 'be mindful
He stated that in 1952 the Post that their task is to give to the
Office Department agreed to es- patrons of the office the very best
tablish City Delivery in Port St.
*Joe which was a step forward in postal service possible and it would

You Arelesponsible for YOU
This pazweek, Mayor J. L. Sharit sent an epistle to the
Police Depaitm t, urging them to take every opportunity to cor-
rect the flagrad~raffic violations -- especially speeding -- now
so prevalent in art St. Joe. Like the Mayor, The Star feels that
the situation hegone way past the "serious" stage.
The Ma:r also sent copies of this letter to The Star and
Station WJOE sking their help in correcting this situation of
mechanized Ruian rouellette among the citizens of Port St. Joe.
The Staieels that it isn't up to The Star, Station WJOE,
the Mayor, the'ity Council or the Police Department to correct
this dangerousituation. It is our opinion that it is up to you
and I -- the (izens and drivers of the City to correct a practice
that threatens a- own safety as well as the safety of those about
The Staknows that every driver in Port St. Joe is mature
enough to knol that he is wrong when he makes a traffic viola-
tion or speeds-irough the City streets. He knows he is wrong
without having be told, fined, thrown in jail or otherwise pun-
ished. The sto of Florida has taken care of that situation. The
State forbids a/one to drive by themself unless they are at least
16 years of ap The age of 16 was not picked out of a hat with
hte ruling, `"-is is when you may begin to drive". The age 16
was picked lIuse a person is supposed to be mature enough
mentally at 't age to have sense enough to drive a car with
care -- to use car for transportation and not mayhem.
So, by ts token, it is our opinion that the person who
speeds down tl city streets, who flagrantly disobeys traffic and
stop signs, whcoolishly endangers his life and the lives of those
around him is Athing more than a moron. Don't think hard of
us for this hait definition. The State has said that you have
reached the ag of driving accountability. By all standards of the
process of mating, you should be of an accountable mind when
you are old eugh to drive by yourself. You have served out
the required ne. If you cannot meet the standards of sane
driving practes, then apparently you have not developed in
mind as you would have.
For a tie Port St. Joe had safe drivers on the streets be-
cause we had policeman on the force that would give a $5.00
ticket for runig a stop sign -- all he had to do was see you do
it and you ha$dhe ticket. Quite a few of these were passed out
and people bepn to stop at stop signs. This policeman would
catch a speedeind make a case against him. Word got around
that unsafe during practices would cost you money -- as well
as maybe your e. Driving on the city streets became safe.
Driving ies and regulations have been enforced in Port
St. Joe and wesay they can be again with a little effort. But
even though tfly can be enforced, it still doesn't erase the fact
that nobody b, you and I are directly responsible for the des-
picable drivmngiabits now prevalent in our city. Let's do some-
thing about it.
indepeibnce is Full Time Job
Mondayjuly Fourth, is the birthday of our nation. It is
a great nation, ut a look at past history will cause one to wonder
how it even coe into being and a look at present history will
further cause we to wonder how it remains that way.
Take foinstance the battle of Bunker Hill -- the begin-
ning of the bale for independence and freedom. Reading the
history of this Ittle will cause one to wonder how the Americans
whipped the ]itish, for all practical purposes, in this battle
and even causes to wonder how the Americans even pulled off
the battle to 1gin with. The Yankees were up against Major
General ThomaGage and the pride of the English army -- the
Welsh Fusellie, the "King's Own" regiment and the Royal
Marines. Gencal Gage had one of the most enviable reputa-
tions of any Eglish General. The Americans threw up their
breastwork posions on Bunker Hill overnight and didn't even
have a unified command. Three different divisions of farmers,
under three different commanders, working independently, put up
three different defense works on the Hill that completely repulsed
the British. To miracle was that the defense works were so
effective with r centralized plan or command. What then caus-
ed the America; to win a moral victory?
History ills us that men deserted right and left, reinforce-
ments were refi;ed from colonists and the defenders of the posi-
tions had no w;er, only a little rum and a few pieces of salt pork
and only 30 to .) rounds of ammunition per man. But the Ameri-
can freedom spit in the Americans such as Putnam was strong.
The Americanstred their ammunition inflicting 80 percent casual-
ties on the Brith and then they ran to fight again another day.
These tttics and this spirit caused General Gage to hesi-
tate going against General George Washington at Valley Forge
even though hhad the Americans outnumbered and the Ameri-
cans were witlut supplies. The British just would not go against
Americans whe they had cover to hide behind to do their fight-
It wouL appear that America today needs an Israel Put-
nam or a Thedilore Roosevelt. It appears that the Monroe Doc-
tfine has beenhrown out of the window.
While te Doctrine will do us no good across the seas.
it could certai:y be applied in the case of Cuba. Theodore Roo-
sevelt used it nee in this area when just such a situation was at
hand as is no' evident. The newspapers tell us that Russia has
for all purposes acquired Cuba as a satellite. The Monroe Doc-
trine was dra'n for just such an event. Now, on this anniversary
of our fight f( independence it would seem the right time to get
out this document dust it off, wave it under Cuba and Russia's
nose and thertake the necessary steps to make it stick.
