Etaoin F Cooper Tells of
By WESLEY R. RAMSEY
Jim Cooper, Chairman of the Ad.
vertising and Promotion Committee
of the Port St. Joe'-Gulf County
Chamber of Commerce, told the
Port St. Joe Rotary Club last Thurs-
day that the Chamber is in the proc-
A tentative budget for Gulf County was presented to the Board
in its regular meeting Tuesday night by Clerk George Y. Core for
study by the Board. Core said that the draft was very rough, as
he had no requests from any of the County departments for funds
and he had to estimate most funds by past experience, since the
law states that he must present a budget for study by the Board.
The preliminary budget reflected a rise in taxes for the com-
ing tax year of 7.9 mills. Core said that the reason for most of
this rise in millage will be due to elimination of the Race Track
funds as a source of revenue by the County as a result of 'a local
bill passed in the last session of the Florida Legislature, giving
the first $230,000/of Race Track Funds accruing to Gulf County
to the Gulf County School Board.
In his budget presentation, Core had estimated' $228,219 for the
General Fund budget. This would require 8.8 mills. Fine and For-
feiture Fund,-,which includes the Sheriff's Department and -County.
Judge had $66,505.in the budget requiring three .mnills: The Road
and. Bridge budget (which had to bpe amended this year providing
'more funds) was set up to receive $217,145 fr9m 10. mills. These
were the major items in the new budget ... .
Other items in the budget included: Capital Outlay (new Court-
house) $115,062.51, five mills. This item also includes funds to
finish paying off a note for the Courthouse property site. The
Gulf County free library program will continue for another year with
$33,003 provided, using one mill. Gulf County Fire Control Dis-
trict and Dead Lakes Water Management District will receive one
half mill each and the Health Department will need 1.5 mills for
Last year's budget required 17.9 mills to finance.1 This year's
budget will require 25.8 as it now stands.
One new item in the budget this year is the Capital Outlay
Fund which will be used to pay off the indebtedness incurred by
construction of a new Courthouse. This is one avenue of financ-
ing available to the Commission. The law allows them to levy up
to five mills by this avenue. The budget calls for the full five mills.
The tentative budget millage reflects the loss of some $115,000
by the special bill giving Race Track money to the School Board.
This item will require roughly seven mills to replace.
The Board didn't take kindly to the loss of their Race Track
Funds, apparently, as they instructed their attorney, William J.
Rish to enter suit to test the validity of the bill and try to prove
it unconstitutional. If successful, this would give the Race Track
money back to the county -as it was prior to, the passage of the

The School Board is partic-
ularly looking at the adjoining
property to the Port St. Joe
High School on Long Avenue.
Long range planning of the
School Board at the present
time is to center the entire
Port St. Joe school program in
this area. In preparation for
this planning, Craig requested,
for the School Board, that a
price be given the Board on
all the property from 20th St.
to Niles Road and from Juni-
per Avenue on the West to
Forest Park Avenue on the
The property request would
give the school area approxi-
mately eight more blocks than
it now has and would provide
ample room for elementary,
junior high and school high
facilities with athletic fields
and parking areas.
Craig said that Ball was re-
ceptive to the Board's request
and asked him to get the Board
together, formulate their long
range plans and then contact
the local agent for land pur-
chases for any land needs the
School has. The local agent is

The property asked for by
the School Board has been
platted on the City records,
but has not yet been opened
for building with no streets,

the Army from more than 1,100 of
the most highly qualified men se-

During ceremonies scheduled to
start at 3 p. m. (EST), ground will
be broken for an eight-mile access
road into the park. Construction
of the road is a necessary first step
to make possible building of facili-
ties which are expected to make
the park one of the most popular
in the state system.
Following talks by Governor
Haydon Burns and Congressman
Bob Sikes, there will be a free
fish fry for the big crowd ex-
pected to attend. Besides Gov-
ernor Burns and Congressman
Sikes, four members of the Cab-
inet and numerous members of
the Little Cabinet and Road and
Park Boards have accepted invi-
tations to attend. Senator George
Tapper is general chairman of
Civic groups, business firms and
governmental agencies at state,
county and city levels are joining
to sponsor the observance.
Port St. Joe organizations par-
ticipating are the Port St. Joe-Gulf
County Chamber of Commerce, the
Junior Chamber of Commerce, the
Rotary, Lions and Kiwanis clubs
and the Retail Merchants' Associ-
ation. The Rotary club of Wewa-
hitchka, the Apalachicola Rotary
and Lions Clubs and the Apalachi-
cola Chamber of Commerce also
are helping stage the celebration.
State agencies taking part are
the Game and Fresh Water Fish
Commission, the Board of Conser-
vation, the Park Service, the Flor-
ida Forest Service and the Florida
At the local level, the Gulf Coun-
ty Commission, the Wewahitchka
Development Commission and the
city governments of Port St. Joe,
Apalachicola and Wewahitchka also
are supporting the program.
Business firms assisting are the
Glidden Company, Port St. Joe Pa-
per Company, Michigan Chemical
Company, St. Joe Telephone and
Telegraph Company and Ward
Ridge Construction Company.
Following construction of the
access road, work will begin on
minimum facilities expected to
cost about $100,000. These in-
clude an entrance station and
entranceway picnic area and rest-
rooms, necessary fencing, ranger
residences, boat docks and ma-

Initially, the park will occupy a
671-acre multiple-recreation area
which has eight and a half miles of
white sand beach. Long frontages
on the Gulf and on St. Joseph's Bay
afford excellent opportunities for
shore fishing. Some of Florida's
deepest inshore water is found
near the Peninsula, giving fishing
opportunities for some deep-sea
specits within minutes from land.
In adidtion to the 671 acres now
in the park, the state is attempting
to acquire the additional 1,728
acres between the present site and
the northern tip of the peninsula.
This tract now is owned by the
federal government but has been
declared surplus. If this could be
added to the park, it then would
have 14 miles of Gulf frontage and
another 14 on St. Joseph's Bay.

Tallahassee-A word of caution
about avoiding some outdoor haz-
ards was issued today as an aid to
sportsmen and outdoor enthusiasts
by,Brantley Goodson, law enforce-
ment chief of the Florida Game and
Fresh Water Fish Commission.
Goodson said, "precaution against
hazards in the out of doors should
start well before the trip begins. A
complete physical may provide
warning against excessive activity
and a tetanus shot is the best in-
surance against infection from as-
He said, "fishermen are exposed
to many wounds, such as being
pricked by fish fins, snagged on an
artificial bait or nicked by a knife
while cleaning fish.'Fishermen, are
also advised to include a small pair
of snippers in their tackle box for
use on location should someone be-
come hooked in a fleshy area where
the barb can be pushed through
and cut off."
The law enforcement chief said,
"folks moving about fishing camps,
especially those bare footed, might
occasionally step on a fish bone
which are highly infectious."
A standard first aid kit should
definitely be included among
sportsmens' equipment to bulwark
anti-infection precautions through
a tetanus shot.
Goodson said, wildlife officers
patrolling fishing and wilderness
areas are frequently called on to
provide first aid and are trained
to assist the summer outdoor trade
under proper circumstances.

Chris is making a seed necklace hle the one around her neck.
She is using sunflower and red kidney bean seeds which make a
red and black and white necklace for her white blouse.
There are many different kinds of seeds that (an be strung ihto
necklaces. Watermelon seeds make a pretty black necklace and
pumpkin seeds a cream colored one.
But Chris is using sunflower seeds and kidney beans because it
is winter time and both of these are easy to buy from a store. The
only trouble is that they are so dry they have to be soaked in water
to soften them in order to stick a needle through them. This soak-
ing isn't needed when seeds are freshly gathered from the garden.
Chris soaks a few at a time of each kind of.seed in a saucer and
meanwhile strings those already soaked. She is using ordinary
sewing thread, such as you'll find in Mother's work basket, and has
doubled it for greater strength after threading it through her
First Chris threads on 20 sunflower seeds, sticking the needle
through the middle of a flat side of each seed. Then she threads on
one red kidney bean seed, but with this seed she flushes the needle
through from one end to the other. .
You'll see a completed necklace using the same two kinds of seeds
around Chris' neck. The materials for these necklaces are easy to
'find just needle (not too fine, but very sharp), thread, scissors
and seeds.-If YOU *veat one of these necklaces to school, every one

"Super-Right" Heavy Western Beef
Shows Sharp Drop
Vigorous commercial activity was
shown by west Florida ports in
1964 with the exception of Port St.
Joe, which was adversely affected
by a petroleum pipeline handling
commodities- formerly moved by
water. Official waterborne freight
statistics were released July 26 by
Colonel R. C. Marshall, District En-
gineer for the Army Engineers at
Mobile, who is responsible for the
development and maintenance of

Panama City showed an overall
increase of 8 per cent.
A sharp drop in waterborne ton-
nage handled at Port St. Joe-135,-
820 tons in 1964 compared to 1,580,-
893 tons in 1963-was due mainly
to use of a pipeline to transport
petroleum products formerly mov-
ed by water.'
The Gulf County Canal connect-
ing Port St. Joe with the Gulf Intra-
coastal Waterway, which traverses
an inland land cut in this area, also
showed a decrease.
Pensacola showed a decrease of
9 per cent.
Smaller west Florida ports show-
ing increases are Carrabelle, from
39,607 tons in 1963 to 40,962 tons
in 1964; Apalachicola Bay, from
18,006 tons in 1963 to 46,294 tons
in 1964. Shellfish and related prod-
ucts accounted for a large portion
of the tonnage except at Carrabelle,

It seems that the,people of this area have settled back
now, contentedly awaiting the construction of the new State
Park on St. Joseph Peninsula like it is a foregone conclusion
that the park will go through as the local population believe
And too, with our prior experience with the State Park
Board in securing the property now owned for the Park we
are taking for granted that the State will also purchase the
1,747 acres now for sale by the, Government to enlarge this
All of this, we believe, the people are taking for granted
-because this extra land is of the same type being used for the
park and because it is adjacent to the present park site.
But we do not believe we can take any such thing for
granted. And proof of our supposition is the statement made
by Governor Burns last week to the fact that he "hates to
talk about spending $125 per acre for park property in iso-
lated, sparsely populated areas of Florida when parks are
needed in population centers."
We 'should keep this statement in mind during the next
few months, especially until this government property is
purchased by the State to enlarge upon our state park.
We should use every means at our disposal to remind
the Governor that it would probably take all of his planned
road bond money to purchase the type property available
on St. Joseph's Peninsula in these "developed" areas of
We should also use our voices to remind the Governor
that such action as removing the small portion of Northwest
Florida Highway 98 from his proposed four-laning project is
one of the reasons this area is "isolated."
But the Governor should also be reminded that more and
more people are finding their way to this "isolated" region
to spend their leisure time. The "developed" areas offer too
much in hustle and bustle for one to relax and enjoy himself.
This type of relaxation is the type that St. Joseph Park will
provide-even for those citizens of the "developed" areas.
SWhile beachfront property in these "developed" areas is
scarce and dear, there will come a day in the not too far dis-
tant future when we in this area will cast our covetous glance
at St. Joseph Peninsula State Park and with the cataract of
the dollar mark over our eye we will, in all likelihood, remark,
"isn't it a shame to waste all of that valuable land for a
-park?" But by that time it will be a park to protect a small
portion of this earth for enjoying the beauties of nature. We
-will have the "wasted" land ever before us to remind us of
what a natural piece of beach looks like ... what an unmani-
cured wilderness looks like ... what an uncultured tree looks
These things are vanishing from the scene and have
vanished in the "developed" areas of the State of Florida as
well as in other states.
Instead of bemoaning the expenditure of money in an
"undeveloped" section of Florida, the Governor had better
thank his lucky stars that Florida still has such areas to
adequately provide for those who come to Florida every year
to enjoy such facilities, as it won't be long before such areas
will be impossible to find.
So, let's be on our toes and use our influence to see that
the park is duly constructed in a manner to provide the
utmost in park facilities and help the Governor be far sighted
in his planning in spite of himself.

they are developing for a Haydon

Rivers and Harbors Bill Moved

week of hearings is scheduled. It
is expected that the bill will be

in a short time. Senate action was
completed last week on a similar
bill. The Senate bill carries author-
ization for an improved channel
and jettying for East Pass at Des-
tin. I am appearing before the
House Committee in support of this
project, and I will also ask for the
inclusion of the Gulf County Canal.
The latter will be more difficult
since a favorable report from the
Engineers has not yet reached the
Congress, but is anticipated shortly.

expected earnings 'for the rest of
1965. This was the message John
V. Carey, Social Security District
Manager in Panama City, had to-
day for the 17,000 persons in the
Panama City area now receiving
Social Security checks. The re-
minder is being released because
of the number of people who are
overpaid Social Security benefits
each year and must make refunds
after the end of the year. This oc-
curs when the "retired" benefici-
ary's yearly earnings exceed the
original estimates given to the So-
cial Security Administration.
Under the Social Security law,
the test of whether or not a bene-
ficiary under 72 is "retired" is
based on his annual earnings
Carey stated. If his earnings are
$1,200 or less, he will get all bene-
fit checks. For annual earnings be-
tween $1,200 and $1,700, one dol-
lar is deducted from benefit pay-
ments for every two dollars earn-
ed. For example: if yearly earn-
ings were $1,700 ,there would be a
deduction of $250 from the total
benefit payments for the year. For
ings were $1,700, there would be a
dollar is deducted for every dollar
Since the test is a yearly test,
the correct amount of benefits due
a beneficiary is not determined un-
til the year is over and the bene-
ficiary files an annual report with
ithe Social Sepurity Administra-
tion, Carey continued. Yet timely
receipt of checks is very important

cial Security check by employment,

Also, if during the year wages or

Why should you travel extra miles and use up
gas and trouble by shopping right here in-your
extra hours to shop out of town?
ANSWER: You Shouldn't! You can save time,
hometown stores. Furthermore, modern distribu-
tion brings the newest merchandise here as fast as
anywhere and lower overhead costs that in larger
places helps keep prices DOWN.
How can this community grow and prosper,
provide career opportunities for our young people,
unless hometown folks spend most of their money
here at home?
ANSWER: It can't! Dollars spent away are gone
forever. Dollars spent here stimulate local trade
activity, finance business expansion and increase
Where is the money coming from to maintain
and improve our schools,,civic services, our churches

ANSWER: Much of it must. come from 'xes paid

The best of summer parties
is the beach party, starting
early in the blazing sun,
winding up with songs after
dusk. The best is the easiest,
too: a nice crowd, a good pic-
nic packed by you. At the
beach there's something for
everybody to do, from the
most fervent athlete to the
languidest sunbather. Even
the chaperones love it; no
noise problem with the whole
sky the ceiling!
While the sun is high, you'll
swim, beachcomb for shells
or pebbles, and flop on the
sand (br the grassy bank)
for sunbaths. And volleyball,
softball, or touch football
were never like this in P. E.
At sunset it's time to eat,
and you were a genius to pack
such a fine supper and pack it
so well. You made a list of the
things you'd need (even salt
and -napkins and beverage
can openers); you packed and
wrapped so that cold things
stayed cold, nothing got
crushed, and sand didn't seep
into the food. (Tip: to keep.
perishables cold, stack the
well-chilled soft drinks
against them.) The classic
picnic menu may be old-hat,
but it's still good: weiners to
roast if you're permitted to
build a fire, do-it-yourself
cold cut sandwiches if you're
not; potato salad, devilled
eggs, little tomatoes. '

At least one out of four per-

A large proportion of deaths'
by lightning occurs to people
engaged in agriculture or other
