And here it is Christmas again.
A good time of the year.
A fine time of the year.
What we like about Christmas
is the giving or at the least
the desire to give. Giving is much
better for a person than getting.
One day of giving seems to cure
years of the spoiling that comes
from always receiving.
It would seem that God force-
fully reminded us last week that
this part of the year should be
reserved for the observance of
His birthday. He reminded us of
this with a big freeze-the big-
gest in Florida since 1885. And
at a time when the people of
Florida have gotten farther
away from God since 1885.
How did the cold remind us of
All of the air conditioners yet
made by man couldn't cool the
outside temperature of the state
of Florida by more than. one or
two degrees, if their combined
cooling power were to be direct-
ed into the state.
And yet God made one big
deep freeze out of the entire na-
How much more of a reminder
do we need?
We haven't had time to get our
Christmas shopping done yet this
year because of rushing business
(thank the Good Lord). As a mat-
.ter of fact, this issue of The Star
is the largest issue ever printed
in the paper's history, with the ex-
ception of special editions.
For that, we and our creditors
are .duly happy.
Before we knock of this pa-
per and get to'\our Christmas
shopping, let us here at The
Star wish each of you the Mer-
riest Christmas yet.
We would also like to humbly
ask you to stay sober this' Christ-
mas, so that your family may enjoy
the holiday along with you.

of learning experience rather than One of the most important po-
tentials of Educational television
is that it brings to the student
and the teacher opportunities
and possibilities for the develop-
ment of skills, understanding
and new insights through the
careful planning and organiza-
tion of content, the well selected
visuals, and methods of presen-
tation. This shared common ex-
perience of a telecast frequently
gives teachers and students a
basis for further work and study.
Today, throughout our country,
there are more than 63 non com-
mercial television stations (five in
Florida) which broadcast regular
daily instruction to more than
tlu'ru and a .h' million students.
Educational Television is an in-
structional medium that has great
potential for bringing about curri-
culum change through its dynamic
impact. With the loss of qualified
instructional help in the area of
Spanish this year, it is anticipated
that ETV Spanish will be of much
help especially in the elementary
schools of the county. The Ameri-
canism vs. Communism Course (re-
quired by Florida Legislature) to
be taught in the county schools
this year is so new to the curricu-
lum that very little material is
available to the teacher. This is a
critical area of instruction with a
great deal at stake and very little
to work with. Lectures prepared by
professionals with extensive exper-
ience in teaching and writing on
the subject will be made available
through the ETV program.
To prepare for the telecast, a
series of curriculum workshops for
teachers in the subject areas are

The Port St. Joe Chamber of
Commerce acted as host yesterday
feting two of the Florida Board of
Parks and Historic Memorials of-
ficials here in Port St. Joe.
Jack K. Bradley, administrative
assistant and Claude Willoughby,
area supervisor, were in Port St.
Joe to inspect the St. Joseph Penin-
sula Area. Their purpose was to
get some idea of the lay of the
land and to begin to design a 2,000
acre park. which is being sought
for the tip of the Peninsula.
At the present time, a formal re-
quest has been issued to the Fed-
eral Government to relinquish the
land to the State of Florida for
park purposes. The State Parks
Board has committed itself to build
the park if the land can be obtain-
ed from the government. Money
for the park has been included in
the "asking" budget for the com-
ing biennium by the Park Board.
The Chamber conducted the men
on a land and water tour of the

December 11, 1962
The Board of County Commissioners of
Gflf County, Florida, met this date in reg-
ular session with the following members
present: Leo Kennedy,, Vice-Chairman, Neva
Croxton, A. J. Strickland and Jines II..
Greer. The Clerk. Sheriff, Altornev, Engin-
eer. Road Superintendent, Mosquito Control
Supervisor and Civil Defense Director were
also present. S. C. Player, County Commis-
sioner-elect was also in attendance.
The meeting came to order at 9:00 a.m.
The Clerk opened the meeting with prayer.
Thi Minutes of November 13 and 27
v- re read, approved and adopted.
The Board entered into a discussion with
Sreference to the proposed County Road
running from the West end of the present
old Iola County Road to Pittman Landing.
Commissioner Strickland informed the Board
that the right of way has not been deeded
to the County by one of the land owners
due to the fact that the said land owner
wants to include a utility easement to the
Gulf Coast Electric Cooperative in the right
of way to the County; that past experience
proves that this is not thie best arrange-
ient for a road right of way. After further
discussion the Board issued an invitation
for said land owner to come before this
Board at the next meeting to discuss this
l'uiriuant to invitations to submit itds
to sell the county a one ton air conditioned
installed in the Farm Agent's office the
Board received one bid, to-wit:
From: WAewahitchka Hardware Company:
1 1-ton air conditioner at 12,500 bit,
After discussion, the Board voted to re-
ject this bid because the equipment offered
wais rated higher than the County needs,
but to mail out invitations to all dealers to
submit bids to install 1 air conditioner rat-
ed at q200 BTU, bids to be received Jan-
uiary 8, 1963 at 9:00 a.m.
The Clerk read a copy of letter from Dr.
Will Dean Lowery, M.). to Dr. William
L. Wright, 'M D., Florida State Board of
Health, Jacksonville, said letter referred to
Matters pertaining to the Gulf County
lHealth Program which has been in ques-
tion since D. I has been on leave
of absence 11. .... ch ool in Pittsburgh,
I'ennsylvania. Commissioner Kennedy told
the Board that lie would contradict Dr.
Lowcery's letter as to thie part that reads,
to-wit: 'I know of no person who has been
told by me that physical examinations
would not be clone for those students need-
ing to have them lone at tihe Health De-
partment." Commissioner Kennedy told the
Board that Dr. Lowery told him that she
had never refused to take care of an indi-
gent patient, but that she thought that peo-
ple who could pay for their examinations
ought to go to their own doctor. The Clerk
notified the Board that he has not received
a reply from Dr. Wright as to if, or when
lie will appear before this Board to dis-
cuss our Health Department problems.
The following names were added to Indi-
-ent roll: Nora Mae Conley, $15.00. Mrs.

The Board discussed the replacement of a

torned, that it be donated to the Golf

include payments to wives and
children of retired workers, to the
survivors of deceased workers, and
to severely disabled workers and
their dependents. By law, all con-
tributions are credited to the old-

trust fund. These funds can be
used only for Social Security pur-

to guarantee that the Social Secur,

Many people can't distinguish be-
tween the types of trees sold at
Christmas time. But, being able to
identify these trees and knowing
how they differ could help your
family to get the kind of tree they
will like best. "Different trees
have different advantages and dis-
advantages," explains A. S. Jen-
sen, assistant forester with the
Florida Agricultural Extension Ser-
For example, although spruces
usually have good coloring and
stiff branches-important for hold-
ing up the family's big ornament
collection-they lose their needles
quickly. One of these trees-the

odor, objectionable to some peo-
ple, while many other spruces have

tree stands this year. Their frag-
rance is good and they have good
coloring. Firs hold on to their nee-
dles better than spruce trees, but
not as well as pine trees. Fir bran-
ches are not as stiff as spruce
branches, bending when weighted
down with heavy decorations.
Jensen says that the Scotch Pine
will also be common in Florida
markets this year. An oversupply
of these trees in the north should
bring many to our Florida tree
lots. In Florida the pine is gen-
erally well accepted although in
some areas it is not often used for
Pines have good fragrance. Some
have good coloring, while others
do not. Their branches are stiffer -
than those of fir trees and they
retain their needles better than
either spruce or fir.
Trees other than these are avail-
able for Christmas. Floridians who
like to chop down their own trees
often choose red cedar, but spru-
ces, firs and pines are generally I
the most common lot-sold trees.

area, the boys of the School are
overseeing the activities of the
small fry, keeping them happy and
safe. There is a new train this
year, a gift to the school. It is an -
electric one and while not actual-
ly new, it has been repaired and
repainted and made new-looking
by Brian Albert.
The boys who have haCd the most
to do with making the figures for
all the new displays and freshen-
ing up the old ones, are (beside
Brian) John Drew, James Goff,
Bobby Salter, Fred Hutchins and
Eugene Allen. Several boys who
have returned home had much to
do with the work also. The cos-
tumes were designed and made by
Mrs. Ellis Edenfield and her crew.
The boys in Industrial Arts, under
Howard Hutchins have done all
the work with wood. All has been
done under the supervision of the
art instructor, Mrs. Mignon Dub-
roff, whose genius has made the
Christmas displays here at the
School one of the show areas of
Florida. F. L. Ludwig, electronics
instructor, and the boys on his
crew have charge of the anima-
