To Go Into Effect
In '1966 Tax Year
Gulf County Tax Assessor,
Samuel A. Patrick, told The Star
yesterday that his office will re-
value all real estate in Gulf Coun-
ty for tax purposes for the 1966
Patrick told The Star that his
office has received communica-
tion from the State Comptroller's
office, pointing out the State Su-
preme Court decision regarding
property valuations for taxing
purposes, and Patrick says that
he will comply with the Supreme
Court decision during the next
Patrick said that he did not know
as yet just how the re-valuation
would be arrived at. He was unde-
cided as to whether his office
would do the job or ask for out-
side experts to come in and re-
value the county.
Patrick said that the order calls
for a "just value", which considers
seven factors in arriving at a tax-
ing value. These factors include
purchase price, market price, re-
placeable price, income history,
improvements, and several other
The Tax Assessor's office has
been urged to re-value property

provide a broader tax-paying

more potential. income for the

INCREASE NOT TO SHOW SEP 3
The increase in Social Security
benefits will not appear in the
checks delivered on Friday,. Sep-
tember 3, John V. Carey, District
Manager of the Panama City So.
cial Security Office, said today.
The check received on September
3 will be at the same old rate.
Sometime late in the month of
September, a check will be receiv-
ed which will cover the increase in
the monthly amount back to Janu-
ary 1965, Carey added. Beneficiar-
ies who were receiving Social Se-
curity checks in January 1965 will
receive the increase for the 8
months, January through August,
in the check which will be received
late in September.
The Social Security check re-
ceived on October 3 will show the
new higher amount to be paid for
months in the future, Carey con-
tinued. The new higher amount
will be 7 percent more than the
check received on September 3 in
almost all cases for beneficiaries
who first began receiving Social
Security at age 65. The smallest in-

I wish to call your attention to
an error in the news item on the
installation of officers for Willis
V. Rowan Post 116, The American
Legion, in The Star for the week
of August 15-21, 1965, It was stated
by this writer (Not Your Personnel)
that Jarrel Smith wasinstalled as

have stated that Charles Jolly was
installed as sergeant-at-arms.
Thank you very much for making
the necessary correction.
