Jaycees Ask For Salt
Water Boat Landings
A letter from the Port St. Jay-
cees requested the County to offer
their support for construction of
a boat landing in the St. Joe Beach
area and the Cape San Blas area.
The Board failed to second a mo-
ion by Walter Graham that such
support be forthcoming, so the mo-
Comn. Silas Player said he felt
the Board's support was not needed
to secure the landings and he felt
he Board should not approve any-
hing that would be in opposition
o private business.
City To Partidpate In
Canal Walk Construction
Commissioner Leo Kennedy no-
ified the County Board Tuesday
that the City of Port St. Joe would
aid in constructing a walk bridge
over Patton's Bayou at Long Ave-
nue, for school foot traffic.
Kennedy said that the City had
offered to furnish the cement if the
county would extend their construc-
ion to tie into existing sidewalks
now ending at 18th St. and 19th
St The Board agreed to go along
with the project.
Sharks vs. Walton
Lose to Milton by 54 to 7 Score
It's unusual to say that a team
played a good game while losing
54-7, but the Sharks played their
top game in the one-sided effort.
The first quarter was pretty dis-
astrous for the Sharks as the big
Panthers of Milton scored 21 points
with relative ease. During the sec-
ond quarter Milton managed two
more TD's but the Sharks generat-
ed a little offense and made it a
little tougher going for the Pan-
After the half, coach Bobby
Brown must have put a bug in the
Sharks ears because they came
back with but one thought in mind
-score their first TD of the sea-
son. The Sharks played an out-
standing second half and despite
the lopsided score, they never gave
up. Outstanding defensive play by
Eric Hammond, Jimmy Goodman,
Bill Vervaeke and David Young
kept the score from being even
The Sharks scored their TD in
the fourth quarter on a 30-yard
pass play that was set up by some
good running by Tommy Sisk, Bill
Vervaeke and David Young. Quar-
terback Al Cathey hit end Jimmy
Goodman with the aerial and Good-
man plowed through a Milton de-
fender for the score. Tommy Sisk
ran the extra point. As the game
was ending Milton managed to
score their final TD as the whtiet
After a game with Milton, rank--
ed in the top ten in the state, it
will probably seem like a breather
when they meet Walton High to-
morrow night. But the Sharks will
have their hands full because Wal-
ton has one of their top teams this
year and also have a conference
win against Quincy, a 20 to 0 vic-
tory, and you just don't usually
beat Quincy unless you have a
pretty good football team. The
Sharks will be seeking their first
victory and their first conference
win since 1961. If the Sharks can
play the same brand of hard nose
ball they played last Friday they
very well could come up with the

Commission Acts On
Road to St. Joe Spit
Commissioner Walter Graham re-
ported to the County Board Tues-
day that construction of a road to
serve St. Joseph Spit Park would
be an expensive undertaking due
to marshland that had to be cross-
ed. The Board ,after some discus-
sion, agreed that the road needed
to be construction immediately. In
order to build the project, they
agreed to set up a conference with
Governor Bryant, the Park Board
and the State Road Department to
seek state aid.

sioners I. C. Nedley and Wade W. Barrier, Jr.,
'being sworn into their offices Tuesday night by
City Auditor and Clerk, J. B. Williams. Both
men began two year terms Tuesday. In addi-
tion to the swearing in ceremonies, Nedley was
given a certificate of appreciation by the Com-
mision for having completed 20 years as a City
Commissioner. Nedley has the longest record
of service of any Port St. Joe Commissioner
both past and present. Nedley's term, while a
long one, hasn't been consecutive. There were
several terms during the past 30 years in which
he did not serve. The certificate of appreciation
was presented Nedley by Clerk Williams.

'Members of the State .Recreation
Department have 'appeared to sev-

Speakers were Ney Landrum,
Jack Buford and Jim Sayes who
spoke to the Port St. Joe Rotary
Club, the Lions Club, the Kiwanis
Club and the Jaycees.
The Florida Outdoor Recreation
Program was founded by Governor
Bryant due to the national trend
toward outdoor recreation. And
outdoor recreation requires lands
and waters for public use. Since
these areas are being developed at
a rapid rate to private ownership,
it is foreseeable that public rec-
reation areas will vanish from the
scene unless the state steps in with
a program of preservation.
The State program has received

St. Joseph Historical Society held

President Stone appointed J. B.
Williams as chairman of the ar-
rangements for the Society's tour
of St. Joseph's Peninsula on No-
vember 9. The points of interest to
be visited are: Salt Works located
at the head of St. Joseph Bay, In-
dian Mound; first park development
area, the English settlement site
and the Spanish settlement site.
At the request of Gulf County
Representative Ben C. Williams the
St. Joseph Historical Society was
asked to participate in the Decem-
ber 7 dual celebration of the 125th
anniversary of the signing of Flor-
ida's first Constitution in St. Joseph
and the 50th anniversary of the
City of. Port St. Joe's incorpora-
tion. A committee was appointed
to assist in any way possible at this
President Stone informed the So-
city of his position as Chairman
of the Outdoor Recreation Commit-
tee for Gulf County. He solicited
the members aid and urged each
member to work for passage of the
forthcoming Outdoor Recreation
bond referendum bill. He explain-
ed that no new tax would be plac-
ed upon the people if they vote in
favor of the bond issue. The tax
to finance the bill was levied in
the 1963 Legislature. The bond ref-
erendum will merely allow the
Outdoor Recreation Board to ob-
tain lands and develop them before
the price of these lands becomes
so high -it will be prohibitive for
the state to acquire them. Gulf
County has already received $100,-
000 for the St. Joseph Spit project
to be financed by these bonds.
President Stone also discussed
the Indian Site on the peninsula.
He stated that a state archaeologist
who recently visited the site was
very impressed by the uniqueness
of the site and by the potential his-
tory which could be obtained by
scientific excavation. The surface
of the mound yields artifacts be-
longing to the Fort Walton Culture

"The Tony Fontane Story" is the
unbelievable, yet true story of one
of the world's greatest singers. The
purpose of this 80-minute, color
production is to dramatically pre-
sent Tony Fontane's personal tes-
timony, showing to teen-agers and
adults alike that the answer to life
and the hereafter is found only in
the person of Jesus Christ.
As a tenor singing star, he at-
tained international success ap-
pearing in the world's most fam-
ous. night clubs and theatres. Tony's
wife, the former Kerry Vaughn,
was a professional actress when
she and Tony were married 12
years ago. An automobile crash
brought Tony, Kerry and their
daughter, Char'ae, to a knowledge
of Jesus Christ. For their new-
found Lord, they left their lucra-
tive careers to enter full-time
RCA Victor has recorded a sou-
venir album of the songs used in
t hi s motion picture, entitled,
"Songs From The Tony Fontane
Story". The linear on the back cov-
er of the album was written by
Dr. Billy Graham.
It took two and a half years in
organization and preparation for
the tremendous task of capturing
on motion picture the potential im-
pact of this story.
Tony Fontane is at present a re-
ligious recording artist for' RCA
Victor while appearing in Christian
concerts across the world.

The Gulf County Historical Com-
mission announced this week that
the plans for dedicating the Old
Fort Place and St. Joseph and lola
Railroad historic marker have been
Mrs. Ned Porter, chairman of
the Gulf County Commission stated
that the dedication ceremony will
take place at 3:30 p.m., CST at the
site of the marker just south of
Wewahitchka in Honeyville, on
Monday, October 14. According to
Mrs. Porter, the Fort Place was
erected as a place of protection
against the hostile indians in the
1930's by the Richards family. It
was the site of an indjA massacre
in which only Jehu Richards, of
those present, survived. Jehu Ceme-
tery, near Wewahitchka, was nam-
ed after Jehu Richards.
In addition to a very interesting
historical background, the major
importance of the Fort Place is its
value as the forerunner of the City
of Wewahitchka. The last remains
of the old log fort was destroyed
