Importance of Bead
Mexico Beach has become an im-

area, and this fact was made more
evident to the Kiwanis Club Tues-
day, by Charles Parker, owner of
the development between Port St.
Joe and Panama City.
Parker told the Club that he and
his father bought the area in 1946
when: the area paid a total of
$160.00 a year in taxes. Last year,
the same area yielded $60,000.00 in
real estate taxes.
Parker said that in 1947, when
the first subdivision was put on
the market, lots were selling for
an average of $600.00. Now the

ed for hLi pioneering work h-xre in
the newer methods of planting pine
trees and forestland preparation.
Paul was one of the first men in
this area to try the planting of pine
seeds in forestry plantings. He
made equipment for treating the
seeds to prevent birds, rodents, etc
from destroying the seeds. He tried
th sermal seeding and then the us.i
of Farm row crops seed planter to
plant pine seeds in rows. Mr.
Groom was one of the first to try
the different land preparation me-
thods such as chopping, diking,
plowing, etc., and he is still trying
new ideas for improvement of his
operations on the area in his
charge. This far-sighted and pro-
gressive forester runs a sound and
thorough-going developmental pro-
gram on a large section of Gulf
County and adjoining counties of
Bay and Calhoun.
Ruel Y. Grifin, Wewahitchka
has for several years, grown very
goo d igh-yielding corn on his farm
on highway 22 West of Wewahitch-
ka. Mr. Griffin did some pioneering
here on high-fertilization of corn
and showed clearly that more pro-
fitable higher yields could be made
here o4 our sandy-type soils. Mr.
Ruel was the first farmer here, to
the best of my knowledge, to pro-
duce above 50 bushels, per acre.
A few years ago he reported his
production and the figure given is
still the highest yield to date in
our county. He did this on a small

The Board of County Commis-
sioners of Gulf County, Florida,
met this date, pursuant to recess
taken on May 28, 1963, with the
following members present: A. J.
Strickland, Chairman, Leo Ken-
nedy, Walter Graham, S. C. Player
and James G. McDaniel. The Clerk,
Sheriff, Attorney and Engineer
were also present.
The meeting came to order at
6:30 p.m. The Clerk opened the
meeting with prayer.
Norman P. Gross, Architect met
with the Board upon being invited
to discuss the necessary repairs or
construction of the jail. The Chair
man thanked Mr. Gross for appear-
ing and informed him as to what
the Board has done in this matter
up to this date; that the Board
wants information as to the Coun-
ty's needs, considering repairs to
the old jail and the possibility of
a new jail; that the Board also
wants to know what this prelim
inary plan will cost and the length
of time involved.
Mr. Gross thanked the Board for
the opportunity to discuss this
matter. He said that his firm has
done this type planning for many
years and would first recommend
that the count ylook into the in-
ture in this planning; you must al-
so consider the financial angle;
consider Federal Aid for this type
project; that a Federal Agency will
assist in financing the planning
under certain conditions and that
a complete picture should be pre-
sented as to the cost to up-grade
the present facilities as compared
to the cost of new facilities; that a
pre-preliminary report will cost
.05% of the estimated cost of the
job; that this fee will be deducted
from the Standard A.I.A. fee in
the event final plans and specifi-
cations are initiated. After much
discussion, there was a motion by
Commissioner Graham, seconded by
Commissioner McDaniel and una-
nimously carried ,that the Board
execute a contract with Norman
P. Gross, A.I.A. to make a study,
sketches and cost estimates on re-
novation of existing jail and fa-
cilities, a comparative cost of new
jail and facilities, the architect to
receive a fee of % to 1% and said
fee to be deducted from the stand-
ard A.I.A. fee in the event final
plans, specifications and supervi-
sion are initiated.
The Clerk informed the Board
that it should begin considering its
budget for the next fiscal year and
that a tentative budget should be
adopted in July.

Silence cannot be misquoted!
This statement comes to us on a
calendar blotter from Betty Rose
(Fine Coats and Suits). A unique
and worthy thought but how
can one Tattle with Silence? This
typewriter has the word "Silent"
on it but it still makes a noise. It's
now bedtime and it may keep Mrs.
B. awake two rooms distant.
We'll just make a guess there
won't be silence then, either!!! Nev
ertheless, let's ramble around and
see what's cooking!
Here's a Tattler Salute to friends
and former residents of Port St.
Joe, the little Gulf Coast city that
seems to keep tugging one's heart
even after one leaves! Many of
these fine folks still take The Star
and keep up with the local events.
There's the Drakes (our former
postmaster) now living in "little
ole Atlanta". We've already heard
they are visiting St. Joe this sum-
mer We'll be happy to see
them! There's Jack and Lib Hut-
chinson (Jack kept our books many
years ago) They live in Winter
Garden now and Jack's a big juicy
fruit man! The twin boys were ba-
bies then now they're grown
. plus several more! Time an,.
space will not permit us to men-
tion many of these folks we miss
and think of often Yes, we cor
dially greet you and send you our
best Tattling Good Wishes! Won't
you drop us a line and .
one more suggestion won't you
consider retiring in or near Port
St. Joe? The water's fine! Well,
changing the subject and still
speaking of water It's really
interesting and plain heart lifting
to see a landlubber like Dr. Harris,
local pastor of the First Methodist
Church, take to water! Just like
a Baptist preacher! Yes, acres and
miles of it right in St. Joseph's
Bay! This writer persuaded him to
get out of bed one morning this
week about 4:30 a.m. .. and .
whatta you know .. We went
fishing! Why, Dr. Harris got right
in that boat (first time ever in a
boat, I believe) without batting an
eye, or saying a prayer (out loud).
We rode from place to place .
fed scores and scores of fish .
we brought several with us! We had
breakfast aboard about nine o'clock
(mighty hungry, too!) consisting of
tasty cold fried chicken, homemade
pound cake (furnished by the party
of the second part). The writer was
slightly embarrassed having hur-
riedly picked up a package of store
bought cookies along with a cou-
ple of Pepsis. Nevertheless, we
were well nourished and it all turn-
ed out to be a most pleasant ex-
perience Believe we'll do it
again Changing subject again:
had a lotta news but got to talking
about fishing and here's the bottom
of the page. Next week we'll have
a quotation from Shakespeare and
etc. S'long. RGB
P. S. Referencefishing deal: The
writer also came out with some
extra fine Hay-A-Tampa cigars that
happened to be too strong for the
preacher and a luxury
for yours truly.
