this valuation was $16,257,975, or
less than half of the taxable val-

No hard objections were pre
sented to the Tax Assessor's fig-

were filed so that legal objections
could be made later on if the taxes
proved to be but of reason.

All of those filing protests point-

they were in keeping with other

To The Star, when a holiday comes around, it means
there will be just as much "paper" to get out, with the
same number of hands and in one less day.
That last items spells out to us that during the re-
inaining working days, it means that someone is going to
have to "get with it" to get the paper out on time.
In face of the holiday, and all, if you miss something
in this week's issue, we'll say, "we're sorry about that",
and everything will be lovely once again.
They say that when a community begins to lose popu-
lation, it is a sign that it is going backward. Wonder if
this holds true of households too? At our house, we are
losing population. Just Saturday, we went to Marion,
Alabama, and back, to take daughter number one, Cath-
erine to Judson College. And then son number one, Ray,
will be leaving our bed and board in November due to the.
growing up process. This will leave us with two empty
beds. This is a funny feeling for a young fellow, like me,
of only 35, plus a little.
Somebody asked me the other day, "Who's The Star
going to endorse for Mayor and Commissioners?" We
had to say, politely, that The Star was not going to en-
dorse anybody for Mayor or Commissioners.
Candidates running on both sides are friends of ours
and we believe that we will get some good representation
for the City government out of this race out of the lead-
ing contenders (Reid Avenue poll). We are not too dis-
turbed by our City, its government, and the caliber of can-
didate we see usually attracted to the races. And, as a rule,
pretty level-headed men win out in the City elections.
We made the remark the other day, that out of the
losers in all three positions up for grabs in the City election
you could pick out a pretty good governing board.
We wish them all luck, and we will do our endorsing
on a paper ballot in the Fire House at the City Hall on
next Tuesday morning about 8:15.
Won't you join me?
At long last the mystery is solved!
Probably nothing has caused so much controversy
as that picture of "old St. Joe" in The Star a few weeks
ago. As a matter of fact, former resident Henry Drake
now of Atlanta, Ga., was all set to come down here and
argue in person that the picture was not Port St. Joe.
Mr. Drake and many others have been borne out in
their contention by Ben Williams and Fred Maddox, both
of whom lived here at the time. As a matter of fact,
Ben lived in the first house on the right of the picture-
if it had been Port St. Joe, that is.
The voices of historical authority say the picture
was Telogia, and not Port St. Joe.
So now we have settled the argument or start-
ed a new one!
The candidates have been busy for the past several
days, expounding about what is wrong with the city and
what it needs.
We'd like to put forth our "need" in the city and clas-
sify it near to the number one position.
We have three civic clubs in our city and a Merchant's
Division that desperately need a meeting place where they
may get a noon meal. All of the clubs are grateful for the
makeshift conditions under which they are meeting and
eating now, but they desperately need something perman-
ent where they may obtain a noon meal and provide a nuc-
leus around which they may gather.
The civic clubs of our community do a good job in
making our town a better place in which to live and they
deserve to have this need met.
Since the closing of the Motel St. Joe Dining Room
restaurant for lack of a manager, the clubs have been in
a pickle. If you have an idea for a solution, won't you con-
tact Sonny Sherrill, president of the Lions Club; Ted Can-
non, president of the Kiwanis Club; Dave May, president
of the Rotary Club or David Rich, chairman of the Mer-
If you have a solution, you will have about 120 men
deeply in your debt.

Historical Society Outlines Past
Achievements and Future Prospects
The- St. Joseph Historical Society
met Saturday afternoon, September
3, in the City Hall for the purpose
of discussing ways and means of
promoting the several projects
which this group has undertaken.
Under the leadership of Mrs.
Charles Brown, who is now presi-
dent, the work is moving steadily
The St. Joseph Historical Society,
a very small group with member-
ship limited to 12, is a dynamic
force in the city. Since this group
was organized a number of years
ago, its influence has been seen
and felt in many areas; in the pro-
motion of such projects as the re-
storation of the Old Cemetery, and
the upkeep and beautification of
its grounds and of the Centennial
Building and park area; improve-
ment from time to time of the mu-
seum, including a constant search
for additional materials and exhib-
its to be placed in this building as
well as the renovation and exten-
sion of the building which is now
in progress; research for historical
facts and data and proper catalog-
ing of objects which have been un-
The Society is now involved in
a project to produce a booklet
which will givea brief history of
all the signers of the Constitution,
and is continuing with the exten-
sive search for the original docu-
ment. Only last summer the group
sponsored a college course on ar-
chaeology, taught by Dr. Hale
Smith from Florida State Univer-
sity. This most interesting course
was available to local people and
was conducted here in the city,
with an excavation program on St.
Through the efforts of this little
group, information has gone out in
the state and nation about the rich
history of this area, and as a result
of this nation-wide publicity, many
thousands have visited the mu-
seum. When the present work is
completed, many others should be
attracted to this area.
The St. Joseph Peninsula State
Park is a dream of the St. Joseph
Historical Society, now coming in-
to reality. The promotion of this
dream now coming true involved
the writing of thousands of letters,
many telegrams, and a number of
visits to the state and national cap-
itol. It involved release of land
and appropriations for the devel-
opment of a state park, which,
when completed, will be surpassed
The Society is anxious to build
a circular walk in the Old Ceme-
tery, using old brick. Mrs. R. H
Brinson, who is heading this work.
has asked that anyone having any
old brick to contribute to this
cause, please see or telephone her
or the president, Mrs. Charles
Brown. Also, if anyone would like
to make a monetary contribution
or knows where some old brick
may be obtained, please call one of

Two new railroad cars are now ferent tall oil derivatives. These

Glidden Port St. Joe plant to in-

are 20,000 gallon "JUMBO" units
(most railroad tank cars hold from
8,000 to 12,000 gallons average).
The new cars were built for Glid-
den by Shippers Car Line, and are
being leased by the Organic Chem-

tract. The jumbo cars have stain-
less steel heating coils in them and
are lined with a Glidden Product

larger-than-normal cars will trans-
fer distilled tall oil and tall oil
fatty acid to Glidden's Organic

NOTICE CITY VOTERS
Approximately three-fourths (3/4) of the
City's insurance business is apparently with
Mayor Hannon's agency. Now is the time to
eliminate this possible conflict of interest.
Other local agents are not being given their
justifiable share. They are on the outside.
How much in dollars and cents is paid to
the Hannon Agency each year for city insur-
ance premiums and how much does he person-
ally gain at 15-25% commission fees on each
his agency's city policies?

Had Your Fruit Today?
N ^ by 'Bttq C'tckd
Every day, in some unusual way you really should take advant-
age of the season's abundant supply of colorful fresh fruits. For a
starter, have you tried your canteloupe with a little fresh lime
juice squeezed over it? Or, have you considered Fruit Kabobs as
appetizers: Spear a strawberry, melon ball, pineapple chunk and
banana slice on a wooden pick. And, have you heard the latest
gourmet touch for green grapes? Serve with a blop of sour cream
sprinkled with brown sugar. De-lectable! Last question, have you
been to market today? Well, read the recipes below first. They're
loaded with more interesting surprises for fresh fruits.

"Thus Saith The Lord"
by REV. BILL GRAHAM
Last week we began our study of
the Ministry of the Holy Spirit in
salvation. Our first point was the
grounds by which we received the
Holy Spirit. We found that a per-
son receives the Holy Spirit the
moment he savingly believes on
the Lord; not one moment before
and not one moment after (John
There is no such teaching in the
Bible as, "being saved at one
point and receiving the Holy Spir-
it, or Holy Ghost as He is some-
time called, at a later date. It is
impossible for a person in the day
of Grace to< be saved without the
Holy Spirit (Romans 8:9).
This week we shall share the
"Indwelling of the Spirit". Turn
in your Bibles to John 14:16, 17
26. Here we read: "And I will pray
the Father, and he shall give you
another Comforter, that he may
abide with you forever: even the
Spirit of truth whom the world
cannot receive, because it seeth
him not, neither knoweth him: but
ye know him: for he dwelleth with
you, and shall be in you." Now,
verse 26: "But the Comforter,
which is the Holy Spirit, whom the
Father will send in my name, he
shall teach you all things, and
bring all things to your remem-
brance, whatsoever I have said
There are several things to con
sider in this passage. First, the
Comforter of verse 16 is identi-
fied in verse 26 as. the Holy Spir-
it. Second, the Holy Spirit, which
has a "with you" relationship in
the Old Testament would now have
on "IN YOU" relationship to the
The moment one believes in the
Lord Jesus Christ he receives the
Holy Spirit (John 7:39) in him;
that is, the Spirit comes unto the
very center of man's being (heart)
to make His abode. Third, this "IN
YOU" relationship is forever (verse
Once a person receives the Holy
Spirit it is forever. He never de-
parts for any reason. This fact is
further stated in Ephesians 4:30.
"And grieve not the Holy Spirit of
God, whereby ye are sealed unto
the day of redemption." In this
verse two things must be pointed
out: 1. It is possible for a Chris-
tian to grieve the Holy Spirit. This
comes about when the Christian's
will is exercised instead of the
Lord's will. This is sin. 2. This
verse also declares that even tho
He is grieved, we are sealed with
Him until the Lord takes us to be
Also we read in Ephesians 1:13,
14 that the Holy Spirit is our "ear-
nest" (down payment) given by the
Father as His guarantee that His
work in us will be completed. The
Spirit is God's guarantee that we
will be with Him, for He will claim
His purchased possession, and we
must never forget that the price
of our redemption was the precious
blood of the Lord Jesus.
Nowhere does the Bible teach,
-as some would have us believe, that
God will take the Holy Spirit from
us. The Bible teaches that God
gives the Holy Spirit to any and all
who will accept Christ as their per-
sonal Saviour, and when they re-
ceive Him, He comes in the believ-
er forever. Again we must caution
all Sunday School teachers, Dea-
cons, Elders and Pastors to "study
to shew thyself approved unto God,
a workman that needeth not to be
ashamed, rightly dividing the word
of truth." I Timothy 2:15.

T aoke Issue With Mayor-Commissioner Frank Hannon's Statements
ch Appeared in The Star Under Date of September 1, 1966
ELD FIRST AUDIT IN THREE YEARS IMMEDIATELY UPON TAKING OFFICE AND UNCOVERED $9,-
h e City records would indicate that this was merely a "spot" audit only and not complete by any means
-. 'Xieither or any departments, for which the City paid an approximate $3,750.00. Also, could it be that
Mayor Hannon needed some funds from the City to pay some of the quite large insurance premiums owed
S.by the City to him since it is apparent that he has approximately three-fourths (3/4) of the City's insur-
Sance business and has for years managed somehow to keep the other local agents on the "outside" as to
their justifiable share of this insurance business? How much in dollars and cents is paid to his agency
each year for City insurance premiums and how much does he personally gain at 15% to 25% commission
fees on each of his agency's City policies.
2. -MADE ANNUAL AUDITS BY CERTIFIED PUBLIC ACCOUNTANT'S A MUST.
The City Charter ONLY has the provision for annual audits of the City records. ALSO, HAS A COM-
PLETE AUDIT OF THE CITY'S RECORDS BEEN PERFORMED SINCE THE CITY'S EXISTENCE?
3. INSTITUTED MODERN 'EFFECTIVE BOOKKEEPING SYSTEM.
*- If his system is so modern and effective, then why are there numerous complaints about overcharges,
.overreadings, etc., on water and garbage bills?
4 R' RDUCED CITY BONDED INDEBTEDNESS $135,000 WHILE 'OFFERING MORE AND BETTER SERVICE
TO THE PEOPLE.
-The bonded indebtedness of the City was scheduled years prior to the present time with provisions that
certain and specified principle amounts be retired each year with interest thereon to be paid at each
and every retirement period.
5. JUST THIS YEAR COMPLETED BADLY NEEDED 300,000 GALLON UNDERGROUND WATER STORAGE
TANK COSTING $71,000 AND PAID CASH FOR SAME.
-A check of the City records should be made to see if a "sneak" "in-law" bond issue was floated for
this expenditure or some other means provided for financing.
6. BOUGHT AND PAID FOR A NEW $17,000 FIRE TRUCK.
This. item, could in sonfe manner, be tied in with the 300,000 gallon water storage tank as to means of
7. :COMPLETED THIS YEAR, EXTENSIVE SEWER IMPROVEMENT AND PAID FOR SAME.
This also could be directly connected with items 5 and 6 and all three financed by some provision. Also, are
.there property assessments against the property owners effected by this expansion?
8. 'PAVED SECTIONS OF SIX STREETS IN NORTH AND SOUTH PORT ST. JOE AND RESURFACED MANY
Please note that there is much difference between paving and resurfacing streets and merely "patching"
holes. Also, if paving and resurfacing is a reality, it is noted that nothing is mentioned about financing
for the work. Is this work paid for or do we have some hidden finance provision?
9. REPAIRED CENTENNIAL BUILDING INSIDE AND OUT AND PURCHASED ATTRACTIVE TABLES AND
CHAIRS FOR USE IN THE BUILDING. THIS BUILDING IS NOW A USABLE ASSET TO THE COMMUNITY.
This would indicate only surface patchwork. Several years ago it was brought to the attention of the
City Commission that the understructure of the Centennial Building was almost completely destroyed by
termites because of neglect. Also for several years this building has not been recommended as a safe
haven for shelter during approaching hurricanes.
10. ADOPTED COMPREHENSIVE BUILDING AND ZONING CODE.
It is one thing to adopt a code. It is also another thing to put the code into use. An observation of the
recent building in the City still follows the same old pattern as before with nothing being standardized
and no inspection whatever prior to occupancy as to wiring, plumbing, heating, etc. The City very
much needs a competent building inspector.
11. 'BEAUTIFIED GRASS MEDIAN ON FIFTH STREET AND CONTINUALLY CLEARED A'ND LANDSCAPED
Countless dollars have apparently been spent on these two items and still the grass dies during hot wea-
ther. Would it not be better to utilize some of this money in the residential areas of the City such as
street improvements? How many City streets does a person see in the City that has curb and proper
drainage? ALSO, BEAR IN MIND THAT THIS IS A STATE RESPONSIBILITY, as far as mainten-
ance of Fifth Street is concerned.
12. INSTALLED MODERN VAPOR LIGHTS ON CITY ENTRANCES AND IN BUSINESS DISTRICT.
.a A review of this lighting installation will reveal that most of these lights were installed in 1960 and 1961.
This was prior to Mayor Hannon's original tenure of office as Mayor-Commissioner.
13. LIGHTED TWO BALL PARKS IN NORTH AND SOUTH PORT ST. JOE. BUILT 'NEW BALL PARK. COOPER-
ATED WITH YOUTH BASEBALL PROGRAM IN FENCING AND IMPROVING CHILDREN'S PARKS.
As to the park in South Port St. Joe the land was acquired and all lighting fixtures and equipment purchas-
ed prior to Mayor Hannon's original term of office as Mayor-Commissioner. How much lighting does
one see in the Park in North Port St. Joe? Also, the fences for the two little league parks in the Forest
Park area were purchased and placed during the years 1954 and 1955. Was Mayor Hannon in office as
Mayor-Commissioner at that time?
14. ENDORSED PURCHASE OF ST. JOSEPH'S PENINSULA PROPERTY FOR STATE PARK PURPOSES.
This is probably one true statement. So did hundreds of Port St. Joe citizens.
15. WORKED TOWARD CITY OWNED BOAT BASIN.
During the past years enough city funds have already been expended to the City's boat basin to have a
good, modern facility of this type. It should be said that the funds have been wasted to the tune of ap-
proximately $5,000 since no City supervised program during the construction or after was followed.
Therefore, a "run-down" condition began to exist and has not improved with age.
16. (NOT MENTIONED) CITY ATTORNEY.
The same situation exists with the continued employment of the present City Attorney as with the City's
insurance business. There are two other local attorneys, who have in all probability, never been offered
this position. This position should be rotated at different intervals, but here again we have the existence
of control by "in-laws", or maybe more properly defined as "out-laws".
Progress for Future Impossible Under Leadership of Frank Hannon
*** No chance of boat basin property possible as proposed as long as Hannon is Mayor. Attempting the
"taking" of certain land is not the solution. With proper leadership this project can become a reality, and
*** Avenue "A" cannot be extended, for an emergency exit. This type project does not qualify under "Civil
.. fense". Furthermore, the city limits would have to be extended. This will take some long range planning.
Advanced plans are at present awaiting higher approval which 'will not be forthcoming as long as Hannon
*** All unpaved streets in North and South Port St. Joe come under the county's secondary road program.
The city only has authority to select the streets to be paved and present a conditional resolution to the
County Commission. It wil be "years" before complete construction could be effected; unless thle city
chooses to use its own funds. Last year's share accruing to the City from the Road and Bridge Fund came
to $56,000.00. What happened to all this money? Are you riding on good paved streets?
*** Sanitary facilities should have been surveyed a long time ago. In some sections of our city these facili-
ties are unbelievable, an unfounded disgrace.
*** Playground and recreational facilities can only be expanded on an integrated basis in compliance with
the new civil rights law. Any other action on this matter would be tatamount to lawsuit against the city.
*** This city must prosper and expand for the benefit of our children. Leadership is a prime requisite in
order to reach this goal. Is it that Mayor Hannon misstated the facts about the "paid for" new fire truck?
Mr. Mayor, is there still an unpaid note for $17,000.00 on this truck?
