The St. Joseph Telephone and
Telegraph Company announced this
week that the new after -9:00 p.m
long distance rates' went into ef
feet at 12:01 a.m. April 4. This ap
preciably reduces long distance
rates after 9:00 p.m. in the eve
The new tariff became official
following approval of American
Telephone and Telegraph Com-
pany's filing by the Federal Com-
munications Commission, which de-
nied a protest by Senator Yarbor-
ough (D-Texas) who had asked sus-
pension of the person-to-person
schedules. The new "after 9" rates
result in five to 75 cent reductions
in initial period charges for sta-
tion-to-station calls between 9:00
p.m. and 4:30 a.m. and proporfion-
ate decreases in charges for addi-
Charges f o r person-to-person
calls were unaffected by the price
Since coast-to-coast long distance
service was established in 1915,
rates have been reduced ten times.
The original New York to San
Francisco call cost $20.70. In March
1917 the rate dropped to $19.80.
Subsequent reductions lowered the
rate in June, 1917 to $18.50; Jan-
uary, 1919, to $16.50; October, 1926,
.to $8.50; September, 1936, to $7.50;
January, 1937, to $6.50; May, 1940,
to $4.00; July, 1945, to $2.50 and
finally in September, 1959, the rate
was set at $2.25.
Other long distance charges
throughout the nation have drop.
Now, with the new "after 9"
calling rate, you can call anywhere
in the United States for a maxi-
mum of $1.00 plus tax for the first
three minutes on a station call.

IT'S CLEAN-UP, PAINT-UP, FIX-UP WEEK IN CITY
For the first time at
least in recent years the
City of Port St. Joe will observe
a Clean Up, Paint Up, Fix Up
campaign. Such a campaign as this
cannot meet with full success un-
less the City is behind it.
Free trash pick-up service
has been offered by the City for
the week to encourage sprucing
up around homes and business,
which will add much impetus to
the cleaning up project around
And it isn't all just talk
on the part of the City in desiring
to see a Clean Up, Paint Up, Fix
Up campaign. Much work has
been done by the City throughout
the entire town.
The City and the State Road
Department are currently cooper-
ating to clean up and beautify

the center strip of Fifth Street. And not a moment
too soon either. Grass was dying, shrubery was
unkempt, flowers were not growing, the edges of
the grass center was beaten down from cars park-
ing on the street shoulder. All of this made for
a ragged approach to the City.
This drive is the first thing strangers see
when they come into Port St. Joe. It is our facade.
Work is progressing toward cleaning up and
clearing the Forrest Park area from First Street to
20th Street. For many years, the City has piddled
with this area, doing a little cleaning each year, a
little clearing here, some mowing there, a little ditch-
ing. Of course all this is necessary before the
present work could be done. The area looks good.
Work by the City all over town has served to perk
up the looks of the surroundings, and with time,
will get even better looking.
We would like to congratulate the City for
their actions in cleaning up the area and for spon-
soring a city-wide clean-up movement.
We hope that you will do your part to put our
best foot forward by "polishing up the shoe".
New Amendments Do Not
Alter Port Authority Bill
This Saturday afternoon at 4:00 p.m. Represen-
tative Ben C. Williams will meet with interested
citizens in the City Hall to discuss his proposed
Port Authority bill for Gulf County. We applaud
Mr. Williams for bringing this disputed legislation
before the people to get their wishes.
Personally, we still oppose his bill as providing
too many powers to an appointed body that is
Williams has placed some amendments on to
his proposed bill, but we feel they are still not
enough to protect the tax payer. Primarily the
amendments give Port St. Joe two representatives
on the Authority in place of one. To provide this
extra position for Port St. Joe, Dalkeith and Honey-
ville have been placed in one district by the bill.
Another amendment says that "The Gulf county
port authority is authorized to request the board
of county commissioners of Gulf county, and the
said board of county commissioners, upon such re.
quest, is REQUIRED to levy a tax upon all real and
personal property in Gulf county at a rate not to
exceed three (3) mills upon the assessed valua-
tion of the tax assessor of Gulf county. This money
shall be used as security for bond indebtedness
and to pay the necessary salaries to operate said
port district." A third amendment requires that
the port manager, provided for in the bill, shall
provide a suitable surety bond in such an amount
as required by the port authority.
We still do not like the idea of giving the
authority to levy taxes in Gulf county. We think
it is bad business for a group, who does not
have to answer to the voters periodically to have
taxing power. There are other items such as
possessing the right of eminent domain (the
right to confiscate property needed for their
purposes) which we will not even discuss in this
article. We will just say that a property owner
should have the right of keeping his property
THURSDAY, MAY 2, 1963
if he so desires.
There is also the advisability of providing
port facilities at this time to serve the Apalachi.
cola, Flint and Chattahoochee Rivers system to
consider. Is now the time to plan for this? We
think not. Assuredly, we want to be in a po-
sition to take care of this traffic. We need
the business. But, time is not of the essence
in providing this service. At present, the only
traffic on the river is sporadic, and is going up
the river by barge from the point of destination.
There is no interchange, anywhere, of any river
freight. With no interchange of freight, a har-
bor for this purpose is not needed.
Perhaps in the future, such a facility will
be needed. But this is in the distant future.
And, we say "distant future" with authority.
We are in possession of a report on the Three
Rivers system, issued by the U. S. Study Com.
mission which says that river traffic to and
from Atlanta will not be feasible until the year
2000. The first extension of the system beyond
Bainbridge will be up the Chattahoochee to Al-
bany and will not be operable until at least
1980. These are optimistic figures and are not
to be taken literally. In all probability the
water traffic to these two cities will not be feas-
ible until later than so stipulated by the report.
And let's face it, until year round water
traffic service is provided to these two cities
we would be foolish to provide port facilities
for handling the products.
We agree with Mr. Williams that we should
begin preparing for water transport service hand.
ling through our port. But, we do not think that
our most lucrative source for the future lies in
the direction of the Three Rivers System. As a
port for foreign trade, we might get some little
bit of business. This we should provide for when
it is feasible. But we believe the present port au-
thority can do this and that they are sufficiently
familiar with water traffic possibilities to know
when this time will be,
We cannot see giving a board powers to go
ahead and build up a fine port here, and have it
stand and rot down from lack of use and become
a financial burden on the county tax payers. We
believe that first, we must drum up the water busi-
ness and then provide the facilities.
Another feature of the bill we do not like is
that it gives this nine man board control over all
waters of Gulf county .. This includes fishing wat-
ers, drainage waters, canals, St. Joseph Bay, etc.
This control could feasibly expand to control over
sport fishing in these waters. Not likely, but pos-
sible. And the possible part is what we do not
go along with.
We will be at Representative Williams meet-
ing to voice our opinion and at the same time
urge him on to having his continued interest in
the improvement of Gulf county.
We think that, in regards to the Three Rivers
System, we should work toward having Port St. Joe
designated as the outlet port for this system for
the future when it is open. This way, we can get
our foot in the door without bankrupting the tax
payers with a "white elephant". Supposition of
good things that might come, has placed a burden
on the Bay county tax payer and we do not want
the same thing to happen here.

Knowing when to stop Social
Security checks can be as impor-
tant as knowing when to start
them, John V. Carey, District Man-
ager of the Panama City Social Se-
curity Office, said this week.
Whenever monthly benefits are be-
ing paid, there are events which
must be reported to Social Sezur
ity. V e depend on the people who
get benefit checks to let us know
when such events happen. If they
don't, an overpayment can result.
Under the law that money must be
Carey said that the most frequent
overpayment of benefit cases in-
volve the retired beneficiary who
returns to work but fails to notify
the Social Security office; the wi-
dor or child beneficiary who mar-
rics; the widow who gets monthly
checks for herself and a child un-
der 18 but fails to tell the Social
Security office when the child
leaves home. He added that there
are other cases too, and that it is
very important that anyone who
gets Social Security checks know
just what events do affect their
right to benefit payments.
Each person who claims Social
Security benefits, gets instructions
on what events should be reported
to the Social Security office, Carey
continued. The payment centers
regularly enclose reminder notices
with checks that are mailed out.
In spite of this, the Social Security
office sometimes finds that a bene-
ficiary has been overpaid because
he didn't report events that stop
or temporarily suspend benefits.
In those cases the person must pay
back that money, and it is always
hard to repay money already spent,
Carey asked that whenever a
person is in doubt about the need
to report a return to work, remar-
riage, etc., he should check with
his Social Security office. "We can
tell you immediately and perhaps
save you unnecessary worry about
it. The best way, though, is to be
sure you know beforehand what
events affect the benefits you are
receiving and how to report them
to us if they do occur. If you aren't
sure, stop by our office at 1135
Harrison Avenue, Panama City, or
call us at PO 3-5331, so we can give.
you full information and you can
be sure," Carey concluded.

following voted: AYE: McDamel,

Robert B. Nations of the Florfda

peared before the Board and in-
formed the Commission that legis
nation has been introduced to pre-
vent the Board of County Commis-
sioners from retaining an Engineer
and then explained why such law
should not be passed. Commission-
er McDaniel said that when he
was seated as a County Commis-
sioner in January, he opposed em-
ploying an Engineer; that he is
still of the opinion that the County
should not retain an Engineer,
therefore he is in favor of such a
law. Commissioner Graham said he
was in favor of retaining an En-
gineer when he came on this
Board and he is still of the opin-
ion that the County should be able
to retain an Engineer. Whereupon,
there was a motion by Commis-
sioner Graham, seconded by Com-
missioner Player that the County
adopt a resolution opposing the
passage of this bill,
The oBard voted to pay the Me-

Commissioner Player told the

mined that a complete overhaul

there was a motion by Commission-
er McDaniel, seconded by Commis-
