Robbins, we loaded up for our
first full day's trip. Some of the
boys from St. Joe were already

Albany, Georgia, and spent the
night at Fort Gordon near Augus-

The next day, Wednesday, we
got up early to leave for Fort Lee
near Petersburg, Virginia. We ate
lunch in Raleigh, North Carolina,
at four o'clock. Most of the boys,
especially quartermaster Billy Wa-
ger and patrol leader Rex Buzzett,
were starving. Assistant Patrol
Leader Tommy Atchison ate din-
ner with a couple of boys from
Raleigh, and .he really worked Port
St. Joe up. We got to Fort Lee
that night, all ready for the trip
Thursday to Washington, D. C.
We arrived at the Capitol in
Washington around ioon and had
a short meeting with Congressman
Bob Sikes. Speaking of the great
white buildings in Washington,
Jimmy Stafford and Knapp Smith,
said, "This is almost as nice as St..
Joe."'We toured the FBI building
later that afternoon, which was
very interesting. Billy Simmons
and Freddy Anderson were so inm-

lows enjoyed the subway trip out.
We looked like a herd of buffalo
trying to beat the subway door,
The Fair was very nice, but our
feet felt so numb after all of the
walking we were glad to head for

Mr. Simpson enjoyed most was the

We arrived at Valley Forge, on
Wednesday, July 15, at noon. We
have done very little but work to-
wards setting up camp since. All
of the boys from St. Joe have done
a good job. Our Troop's gateway
is by far the most attractive I
have seen so far.
Mr. Simpson is doing a wonder-
ful job with our Troop, and we
are all very proud of him. All of
the boys in the Troop are fine, but
we sure miss the best place in the
world-Port St. Joe.

Millage Tentatively Set

This was a decrease of money asked for economy in this budget. -
from last year's budget of $13,500.
While millage cannot be assessed
until the tax roll is complete, it
has been estimated by George Y.
Core, Clerk for the County Board
that the mill rate will be set at
While the money income for
the budget over last year has
been reduced, tax millage will
be increased by 1.3 mills. Last
year's mill rate was 15.9.
The breakdown by funds is as
follows for the 1964-65 fiscal year:
General Fund, $231,486.00, 8.5
mills; Fine and Forfeiture Fund,
$54,720.00, three mills; Capital Out-
lay, $63,799.57, no mills; Fire Con-
trol District, $1,710.00,- one half
mill. No figures are available for
the Health Department, as they are
operated out of Jacksonville, but
the County will assess 1.5 mills for
the operation of this service. Dead
Lakes Water Management takes the
other half mill for a total of 17.2
.By comparison, the present bud-
get contains the following monies:
General Fund, $212,722, 7.3 mills;
Road and Bridge, $192,195, 3.2
mills;'. Fine and Forfeiture, $79,-
190, three mills; Capital outlay,
$63,769.22, no mills and Fire Con-
mill levy. .Dead Lakes WaTr Man-
agement required a half' mill and
thedHealth Department, one mill.
Qn'Friday night of last week a
large group of the Gulf County
Tax Payers LIeague ,met with
;he County .oard" to protest a pro-
posed budget of 22.8 mills,.
The main attacks came on the
amounts designed for the General
Fund and Road and Bridge funds.
But before opposition could be
voiced, the Commission went down
the budget, item by item, making
several ,cuts, and in spite of ap-
peals or suggestions from the floor
stood by their decision and passed
the budget as they had amended it.
Speaking for the Gulf County
Tax Payers League were Tom S.
Coldewey president, M. P. Tomlin-
The General Fund was hiked by
some $20,000 this year to provide
funds for the Fine and Forfeiture
Fund. The F. and F. fund had le-
vied three mills-its limit under
the law-and still didn't have
enough money for its budget.
The Board had previously cut
back welfare money provided in
the budget from $10,000 to $8,000
and were notified that the present
budget had $8,000 allocated for
this item and it is already depleted
with three months to go in the
fiscal year. Tomlinson also noted
this condition and urged closer se-
lection of welfare recipients.
ROAD and BRIDGE
The Road and Bridge fund had
taken the biggest cuts by the
County Board-some $32,000-and
also was the topic of conversation
for better than an hour on econ-
omies needed in the Road and
George Tapper led the discus-
sion for the Tax Payers. He point-
ed out that the road department
was getting too far afield by try-
ing to get in the road building
business and finding this activity
too expensive for the tax payers
of Gulf County.
In support of his contention,
Ta.app-r cited several areas in the
Road and Bridge Budget which
are now or will be before the year's
end, out of money. Among these
were Free Labor with a monthly
payroll of $4,300 and only $3,000
left in the budget for the remain-
der of the year. The department
began the year with 20 employees
and now has 24: The supplies item
has already been overspent by $2,-
500; new equipment by $1,200 and
at least a half dozen other items
would be depleted before the year
To remedy this situation and to
result in further economies, Tap-
per recommended the abandonment
of the county cement pipe plant,
adoption of the SRD policy on
cement pipe and road work and a
close examination of labor require-
ments for the department.

City Stops Waiving
Building, Zoning Code
The City Board held a long dis-
cussion Tuesday night on the city's
recently invoked building and zon-

The crux of the discussion was
that the Board feels it has waived
too many portions of the code in
the past months, and that they
would no longer waive the restric-
tions unless a genuine hardship
The purpose of the Code, it was
emphasized, was to protect the val-
ue of property in the city, to pre-
vent fire hazards and to present
a pleasing appearance in the city
by spacing and grading construc-
tion in certain areas.
The Board felt they were defeat-

BUDGET REACHES 'NEW HEIGHTS
Once again Gulf County gets a new budget And
once again the budget is raised. Even the methods of pre-
sentation haven't changed. A proposed budget of astronomi-
cal proportions is presented to include everything under
the sun designed to be opposed and reduced. It would be
refreshing one year to see a budget presented that was near
,to thefinished product. It would save a good deal of precious
,time picking, reducing, shifting and studying that could be
,used more profitably elsewhere.
But expanded needs and rising costs are making this
game a little more dangerous to play. Limitations on mills
that can legally be levied for certain funds also cramp the
style of "psychological budget warfare".
We'll take the case of the General Fund budget this
year. The preliminary budget figures showed this item
as levying an illegal amount of millage. Preliminary fig-
ures showed this item levying 8.8 mills. The legal limit is
eight mills. Of course some $2,500 was deducted from the
General-Fund budget last Friday night, but, even taking into
consideration the adjusted value of a mill in Gulf County,
we do not believe the reduction was enough to bring the mill
rate to be levied within legal limits. We are protected here
by State law, ,but it leaves a delima for the County Commis-
sion to solve. The budget was adopted last Friday. ap-
One of the items bulging the General Fund is an item
of $20,902 designated for "Sheriff's Salaries and Deputies".
This item should be, listed in the Fine and Forfeiture budget.
But the Fine and Forfeiture budget is levying the legal limit
of three mills and is still this amount shy of being able to
pay its bills.
The Fine and Forfeiture fund lists an expected income
of $10,600, from fines and costs "to help support a budget of
$75,622. fit wasn't.too lolg ag6'thlt fines and costs support-
ed the Fine and Forfeiture fund to a great extent. Of course,
everyone was on a fee system and extracted their operating
money from their customers.
We are not advocating a return to the fee system .
nor ~are we intimating that the law enforcement system and
county judge are lax in their duties. But it seems to us that
fair treatment could be meted out and still the fines and
costs would go more than one-seventh of the way toward
meeting these expenses. It seems a little diligence in this
direction would help the Fine and Forfeiture situation im-
mensly while at the same time, discourage law violations.
The Road and Bridge fund continues to make tax payers
shake in their boots. It appears that the road and bridge
boosters are intent on getting into the road building business.
George Tapper, a local road builder and since he makes
money at it, it would appear he would know what costs are
not necessary pointed out several of these areas of
expense not justified to the County Board Friday night, in
their road department'. Whether or not these words of ad-
vice will be heeded, only time will tell.
The Road and Bridge fund continues to grow even
though every year more and more roads are hard surfaced
in the county at state expense, removing them from mainten-
ance needs on a local level, Since the R. and B, department
should primarily be a maintenance department, why does it
continue to take more and more money to finance?
By and large it seems that the big increases are coming
in departments that could be economized upon. The real
concrete services that aid nearly every county citizen continue
to remain more or less constant.
But the alarming thing is this. As the budget was pre-
sented for hearing Friday night, only the Road and Bridge
fund failed to levy the legal limit of village in the top three
budget items. They were 3.5 mills shy of their legal goal.
All other funds were up to the limit and over, When even a
working budget gets up to the legal limits of taxable income
(and these were designed as extreme limits) then a serious
look at our budgeted items should be scrutinized and county
financed programs should be purged unless necessary for!
the health, protection and welfare of Gulf County citizens.

'Parole Officer Speaks
To Kiwanis Club Tuesday
An interesting program was pre-
sented to the Kiwanis Club Tues-
day at their regular meeting.
La Don Pittman, director of the
Marianna office of the Florida Pa-
role and Pardon Board told the
Club of the duties of his office.
The Parole and Pardon Board is
designed to help make useful citi-:
zens out of convicted or confessed;
criminals. Pittman said that the
great majority of prisoners will
eventually find their way back into
private life, 'and the Parole and
Pardon Board is charged with the
responsibility of making good citi-
zens of them.
A prisoner is eligible for pardon
six months after he enters prison
no matter how long the sentence.
When a prisoner is pardoned or
paroled, he must meet stringent
requirements and report regularly.
The parole system also saves the
state money while keeping a watch-
ful eye on convicted persons. Pitt-
man said it costs the State of Flor-
ida $3.40 per day while in prison
and 44c per day while on parole.

or years the sand hill rieitns
bi Florida have presented a ri'6&.
lem to those who wish to reforest
these areas. The sand hill are areas
of almost sterile sand and often
extends to a depth of nearly a
hundred feet. Covered mostly with
useless scrub oaks and wiregrass.
SOnce this area supported large
longleaf pines which were centur-
ies old as can be witnessed by pine
stumps in some of these areas.
When the original, timber was
worked out for naval stores and
cut for lumber scrub oak and wire-
grass took hold and dominated the
area. The few pine seedlings left
were crowded ,over-shadowed by
the oaks, weakened by repeated
fires and few survived.
Research has sought the an-
swers to questions which may de-
termine the future of these areas
which 'once grew fine trees and
can do so again.
S-Longleaf and slash pine seed-
lings have fared best in these areas
where all scrub oak and wiregrass
competition was removed by com-
plete bulldozing or choppin gthe
area With heavy drum choppers.
Sand pine in contrast has proven
to be much more adaptable to
these deep sand areas than either
slash ,or longleaf pine. Even when
planted in the rough sand pine
grows twice as fast as slash pine
and three times as fast as longleaf
The growth rate of sand pine
is virtually unaffected by site pre-
paration although seedling survival
on site prepared areas is higher.
Early survival of-sand pine is low-
er than slash pine, but once estab-
lished the rapid growth of the
sand pine made up for the low

Quarterly Returns Due
Laurie W. Tomlinson, District
Director of Internal Revenue, this
week reminded Florida taxpayers
:that July 31 is the deadline for
filing quarterly Federal excise tax
returns and quarterly returns of
income tax and social security tax-
es withheld for the quarter ended
June 30, 1964.
Mr. Tomlinson said that the In-
ternal Revenue Service will furnish
pre-addressed returns to all tax-
payers required to file, and re-
quested that the preaddressed re-
turns be used so as to insure ac-
curate posting to the Service's Au-
tomatic Data Processing records.
Mr. Tomlinson also said that tax-
payers liable for more than $100
of excise or employment taxes in
any one month are reuqired to de-
-posit these funds in either local
authorized banks or a Federal Re-
serve Bank and to obtain a deposi-
tary receipt. The returns due on
or before July 31 should be accom-
panied by validated depoistary re-
ceipts and payment in full for any
Mr. Tomlinson added that an
"Employer Tax Guide", Circular
E, which contains a full discussion
of employment taxes and methods
of computing such taxes, may be
obtained without cost at any local
Internal Revenue office.

He pointed out that the earnings

to his survivors. The higher the

said, "although a minimum num-

These two links-portions of the
East-West Tampa Expressway and

way-are scheduled to be open to

Route 10 is the second longest

ville to Pensacola. This freeway is
complete between Jacksonville and
Lake City and considerable work

Route 75 i the Seontd most de-
veloped route in Florida. It will ex-
tend 210 miles from the Georgia
line south to Tampa when com-
pleted. Motorists are now using the
71-mile segment from the state
line south to U. S. 441 near Gaines-
Unless we experience some in-
clement weather in the next week
or two, the adjoining 73-mile link
of Route 75 from U. S. 441 south
to the Florida Turnpike near Wild-
wood will be open to traffic by
August. I hope this connection with
our new Turnpike extension can
be made the last week in July.
This will allow a motorist to en-
ter Florida on Route 75 and drive
all the way to Miami on a limited-
access multi-laned superhighway.
The longest Interstate superhigh-
way in Florida is Route 95. This
four-laned facility will extend from
the Georgia line north of Jackson-
ville south 395 miles to Miami
Early work on Route 95 was
concentrated in Miami and Jack-
sonville to relieve pressing traffic
problems in these two metropoli-
tan areas. The Interstate portion
of the Jacksonville Expressway has
been completed and the northern
leg of the Miami Expressway is
open to traffic.
We have recently accelerated
the rural construction of Route 95
and now have a 51-mile segment
under construction in Brevard
County. In addition, all of Route
95 between Daytona Beach and
Jacksonville is expected to be un-
der construction by December,
1964. Work is now under way on
approximately 40 miles of this 90-
This entire Interstate system is
vital to Florida's continued growth.
I am confident the State Road De-
partment will meet its obligation
to the motoring public by complet-
ing these four superhighways on
