Accord Seems Near In Gulf County "School Crisis"
For Closing of
A petition was presented to the
Board of Public Instruction at their
meeting Tuesday morning to close
Washington High School until 'com-
petent personnel" could be secured
to staff the school.
The petition was signed by "90
to 97" citizens of Port St. Joe, ac-
cording to Superintendent Mar-
ion Craig. The Superintendent said
the petition expressed, among
other things, a fear that school in-
surance covering students was not
valid while the school was staffed
Attorney "Costin told the board
that this Wa's not so. The insurance
is still valid and in force.
Member Bill Rich said that "The
law requires us to keep the schools
open". The Board agreed with him.
The Board officially went on re-
cord as hiring all substitute teach-
ers now serving in Gulf County
schools, for the remainder of the
A letter was read by Craig from
the office of Health, Education and
Welfare officially absolving Gulf
County from any federally-invoked
penalties from failure to comply
with the Civil Rights Act. HEW
stated that new building plans of
the Board would satisfy the office's
integration program. The letter
also instructed the Board to have
six white teachers in Washington
High School "for" the fext school
Another letter was read by Sup-
erintendent Craig from Dr. Herman
Frich, an official of the Southern
Association of Colleges and
Schools. The letter stated that the
SACS would not consider the qual-
ifications of substitute teachers in'
determining the faculty status of
Port St. Joe High School for ac-
crediation purposes.. The examina-
tion will be made in the near fu-
ture. Gulf's faculty status will be
based on its position before the
The Board discussed elevating
Hugh Semmes of the Wewahitchka
High School faculty to the office
of assistant principal of that school.
Action was delayed on this matter
until a new agricultural teacher
could be located to replace Semmes
at his present position.
Appearances are that the cri-
sis in Gulf County Schools is
drawing close to a solution.
Moves by the. Gulf County

absent from their posts, would

At the meeting, Superinten-

the Board and Attorney had con-
ferred and that the only way
the local Board may bring the
absent teachers back in the class-
room with no punitive action be-

quickly Gulf County.
27 Teachers Go
Back to Work
Twenty-seven Gulf County tea-
chers were reinstated to their
jobs Saturday afternoon in a spe-
cial session of the Gulf County
Board of Public Instruction. This
brings to 73 the number of edu-
cators still at work after a strike
state-wide of Florida teachers
two and a half weeks ago.
The board reinstated the tea-
chers and accepted without pre-
judice the resignations of 74
other teachers. Gulf County still
has the largest percentage of
its teachers out of any county in
this section of. the state.
The resignations will presum-
ably be sent to the State Depart-
ment of Education in Tallahassee
for cancellation of teaching con-
tracts, since this is what the
Board said it would do last Mon-
day when setting a deadline for
teachers to return.

Circuit Judge Warren L. Fitz-
patrick empanelled a Grand Jury
on Monday of this week to take
care of several matters. Fitz-
patrick told The Star that it was
necessary to empanel a Grand
Jury since a murder case was
coming up for trial Tuesday of
this week. "While we have the
Jury", hei said, "We are going to
ask them to investigate every
aspect of the Gulf County School
system and see just where we
In naming his Grand Jury Fitz-
patrick pointed out that this
body of citizens is the greatest
protection the average citizen
has against tyranny in office. No
citizen need fear the Grand
Jury unless they have broken
the law, he said.
Fitzpatrick said he was asking
the Jury to conduct a six month
survey of every aspect of the
school system, then make their
report. He also charged the Jury
with ferretting out any instances
of harassment or intimidation of
any teacher, pupil, or school of-
ficial, from whatever source dur-
ing and after the present school
crisis. "This is for the protec-
tion of everyone," the Judge said.
Fitzpatrick said the Jury was
not being called to impose penal-
ties against what might have hap-
pened in the past, but to insure
a proper fruitful future.
GRAND JURY RESPONDS
In response to the charge by
Judge Fitzpatrick, the Grand
Jury issued the following intirim
report yesterday at noon.
"The Grand Jury, at this time,
wishes to announce to the Court
that, as recommended in the
charge of the Court, in addition
to our regular duties, we intend
to fully investigate every phase
of the educational system of Gulf
County in order to give the Court
an informed, factual report of,
the conditions existing with re-
sect to personnel, finances, phy-
sical properties, school books,
supplies and other areas involv-
ing the school system; to make
recommendations to the proper
officials for the correction of any
dificiencies found and to take
every action within the power of
a grand jury to promote quality
education in Gulf County.
"The Grand Jury has at this
point heard sufficient testimony
to report temporarily to the
Court that the educational sys-
tem of Gulf County is improving
daily. Teachers are returning to'
their class rooms, pupil conduct
is improving, parents and public
officials are more effectively co-
operating, for which the Grand
Jury wishes to commend each of
them; however, due to the strong
emotional involvement df. teach-
ers, principals, administrators,
pupils, parents, public officials,
and the public generally, all per-
sons involved should be and are
hereby called upon to cooperate
fully in restoring and keeping
order and peace in the entire
educational system of Gulf Coun-
ty and that any unlawful intimi-
dation or conduct by any person
or organization to the contrary
will be dealt with strictly as pro-
vided by law.
"All persons who possess per-
tinent information relative to
"The Gulf County School Sys-
tem" may volunteer this infor-
mation to the Grand Jury by re-
questing an audience through

Girl Scouts Build Women
"Why do the bad kids get all the publicity? They
probably represent less than one percent of all the kids
in this country." ,\
We might offer several possible answers to this
provocative and often-made remark. But we think it
'would be more fruitful to give some publicity.to the good
So we're tipping our editorial hat to a bunch of very
good kids .. Girl Scouts, who are celebrating the 56th
birthday of their organization this coming week on March
There's nothing square about these girls. They're/just
as groovy and "with it" as the kids who are making a lot
more noise with a lot less to shout about.
They are thoroughly acquainted with' the latest in
rock and folk rock. On non-Scout occasions, they can
look pretty sharp in a mod dress or -a pair of blue jeans.
But instead of trying to-tear this country apart, they
are doing their darnedest tp help build it up. They are
finding ways to serve their communities. They are mak-
ing friends in other countries, and thereby helping to im-
prove our national 'image abroad. They are earnestly
trying to develop their best potential because they know
|our future depends on them.
There are lots of good kids in this country. More than
three million of them are Girl Scouts. So, Happy Girl
Scout Week, kids. Enjoy your fifty-six'th birthday, too.
And to answer the question- posed at the top, we would
like to point out ,that only the unusual makes headlines.
The status quo, or those normal things never get the big
play-up. Since it isn't "headline material" for one to con-
duct himself in a normal manner, we hope the Girl Scouts
--or their .members-never make the headlines the way
- some other:;kids have.
PROTECT OUR ACCESS TO BEACHES
SToo many times we Wake up and find that we have a
situation in our midst that we don't particularly want, or
a situation tht is harmful to what we are trying to do.
Usually when we realize what has happened, it is too
'late'to takethe,"easy way !out". It has been our habit to
come to a-tine 'of crisiS before we start to take action.
But we 'have a situation coming up in Gulf County
that; we believe, we can' do something about, if action is
A If you will take a ride out to Beacon Hill, you will
iee two houses' built on the water side of the highway and
iangther under construction. Most of this property is
dedicated to the use of those who live across the highway
for 'recreational, purposes. The.,houses are built on pro-
perty that was the extension of, streets across Highway
'98.! But, even so, it restricts the use of the narrow strip
of land on the, West side of Highway 98 and restricts pub-
lic access to, the beach. If the pr4tice continues, the re-,
itrictions will become even great.
A second ride along Panama City Beach-even parts
of Mexico Beach-will reveal that one can hardly see the
-water for the buildings. Mexico Beach has an excuse
'for much of its building on the "water side" because there
is a good deal of land between the highway and the water.
But this is not so of Gulf County beaches along Highway
Right now, Highway 90 to our North is being four-
laned. In the near future, we are told Iriterstate 10 will
also be built. Both super highways will drain traffic from
Highway 98-traffic that spends that good old money
here in Gulf County. ,
We believe that if steps are taken now to insure no
more building on our water side of Highway 98, we will
still have an attraction to the traveler. Most people coming
to Florida come to see the water first, then to walk on the
beach, then to fish and swim. If our beaches are visible
and accessible, we will still attract the traveling tourist.
If we hide our water behind buildings, we had just as well
make up our mind to kiss the traveling tourist goodbye.
As we say, now is the time to do it, while the opera-
tion will be relatively painless and effective. We think
this would be a good project for the County Commission
to look into.

ATHLETE OF THE YEAR
The year 1967 was surely one of the greatest years of
sports in history. The 100-to-1 shot Boston Red Sox scram-
bled to the American League championship. The patched-
together Green Bay Packers brought off another world
championship. The search was begun for a new world's
champion heavyweight boxer. The names Brock, Starr,
Shoemaker, Cepeda and Yastrzemski became household
Buitsomehow or other the most accomplished athlete
in the land failed to get the recognition he deserved. This
is a man who can straddle a fence and still keep an ear to
the ground, minister to Senator McCarthy with ,one hand
while "supporting" President Johnson with the other, plant
his feet in Hippieland, his heart in the White House, his
head in the clouds and his weight in New York. It seems
impossible 'that he has any bones in his body.
For those who will accept Bobby Kennedy al the pin-
up athlete of the year we submit two quotes which may be
clipped to the photograph. In December, 1967, he told a
TV audience: "We're killing South Vietnamese, we're kill-
ing women, we're killing innocent people because we don't
want to have the war fought on American soil, or because
they're 12,000 miles away and they might get 11,000 miles
"Do we have the right here in the United States to
perform these acts because we/want to protect ourselves?
This is our responsibility-we must feel it when we use
napalm, when a village is destroyed and civilians are
Alongside this 1967 quote, we suggest a bold-face re-
print of athletic Bobby's statement madein Siagon, in
February, 1962: "We're going to win the war in Vietnam.
We will remain until we do win ... I think the American
people understand and fully support the struggle."
Somehow, the hawk of 1962 has mated with the dove

students from F.A.M.U., F.S.U., Tal-

of high school students and teach-
ers joined the "protest march"
which was organized to protest
qov. Kirk's recent handling of the
F.E.A.'s action. I was one of the
1,500 persons who marched, Why?
Because I feel that there's much
good in the F.E.A,'s actions that
have been presented to the legisla-
ture; and too, I am a business ediu-
cation major attending Florida A.
& M. University. As a future tea-
cher, the crisis affects ME.! There
are the issues of better school fa-
cilities, better working conditions
and better tenure laws just
to mention a few.
Moreover, there are a few is-
sues (I feel) that are unspoken;
such as, if a school is closed or
abolished in a community, hire
those teachers who have the ex-
perience and who have been teach-
ing for 10 to 12 years rather than
an unexperienced teacher who has
two years of experience, regardless
of CLASS or COLOR. Another item
to mention THE POWER
STRUCTURE. the school board
of certain communities! Are these
people- qualified? How many fin-
ished high school or college? Do
you as citizens of these certain
communities know? Yet, these peo-
ple make laws for teachers who
are full qualified, who have their
B.A. or M.A. Degrees in education.
Can you see what's it doing to you,
your children and your children's
children in the line of higher edu-
cation, regardless of color. This is
just to mention a few of the mat-
ters that the F.E.A. is trying so
hard to clear up-yet, it's unspoken
in these terms.
Yes, I marched and I will gladly
do it again if it is for a worthy
cause. And believe me, I'm F.E.A.
ALL THE WAY!

crement in the continuing program
for improving the barge channel

at the Old River Bar near mile 37

"Midget Investments With
By WESLEY R. RAMSEY
We were extremely glad to see the 27 Gulf County
teachers report back to their jobs on Monday of this week.
If, by some means or other, the remainder of the teachers
could be persuaded to come back to their jobs, everything
would be lovely.
We understand that there is a feeling among many of
the absent teachers that they are desirous of coming back
to the classrooms. We feel that a word on your part, to
these teachers would'do some good and bring to an end
the situation which has torn this county asunder for the
past two and a half weeks.
We see in the papers this past week where it has
finally come into the open that the statewide application
of our school problems has been labeled by the wire ser-
vices as a fight for power between the NEA and the
American Teachers Federation, a union, as to who is
best qualified to represent the unions. Florida has been
a showcase for the nation of the strength of the FEA.
Locally teachers feel that they are protesting the
conditions of teaching paraphanalia and buildings, as
best we understand it. Of course, they didn't have to
walk off the job to prove that to us. But, after so long
a time, something is being done about it. We think
that if the teachers stop and think about what will be
in Gulf County in about two year in the way of facili-
ties, they will agree that their protest was answered
even before it began.
We appreciate their interest in the matter, but we
think that the best interest of education in Gulf County
can now be served by their going back to work ... And
after all, it is betterment of education that all of us are
We believe the entire community should give a vote
of thanks for the industry of this area. They have come
to the front in this crisis and headed off disaster. Many
technicians of local industry have ably filled the positions
of vacant teachers. Their need was especially made known
and felt in the areas of science, math and other specialized
fields. We say, "Thank you".
But, too, we would not forget the parents who gave
up their time in order to insure that the schools operated.
And, we must not forget those teachers who stuck by their
jobs during an extremely trying time for them.
This interest shown by the people of Gulf County
should .convince the vacant teachers that we are, indeed,
interested in the welfare of our schools, and they can,-
report back to work with this fact firmly in mind-be-
cause it has been proven.

Landscaping, Like Everything Else,
Has Become Extremely Complicated
Landscaping was once a simple
Settlers chose a spot with built-
in features, including sunny slope,
shade trees and native shrubs. They
accentuated their spacious domain
with pickets and whitewash.
Today, homeowners are lured on-
to tree-less fields by streamers 'and
fancy entrances. Homes are cramp-
ed on miniature lots. Owners are
hard pushed to find hiding places
for the garbage pail, the trash
burned or the fender-dented jalopy
that isn't good enough for the front
Whether country, city estate or
subdivision, Florida living is syno-
nomous with outdoor living. The
outdoor living room is often the
front yard, the outside kitchen is
the grill in the back yard and the
work room in the house compares
with the utility area of the yard.
Landscaping adds to the enjoy
ment of these living areas, accord-
ing to Institute of Food and Agri-
cultural Sciences ornamental ex-
Plants improve the beauty of the
home, increase the usefulness of
the yard and enhance the value of'
the property. Also, a good land-
scape plan provides some food
for the family table.
Landscape projects don't hap-
pen they must be planned. The
plan need not be elaborate. All you
need is a scale drawing of the
building, trees and other features
of the lot.
Graph or tracing paper will do
fine for the initial "art work".
Once the features are recorded,
the real job of landscaping begins.
The first thing to remember is that
a landscape project is personalized
or custom-built for every family.
Study the habits of the family be-
fore planting even a single blade
of grass. A few families use the
front door, many enter the house
via the carport and the rest drive
around the back so the neighbors
won't see the latest purchases.
Besides landscaping for conven-
ience of assorted sizes of cars and
motorbikes, it's a good idea to con-
sider a walk for formal visitors
who might accidentally park in the
Before setting plants, remember
that just as the house is divided in-
to rooms, the yard should be divi-
ded into areas. These are front or
Public, service or utility and back
Design the front area only large
enough to give the house the pro-
per setting. The size of the lot and
the house are the limiting factors.
For better looks make the
front yard wider than it is deep,
but in harmony with other proper-
ties. Beware of curving walks. It's
eaiser to work with plants along-
side straight walks and likewise it's
easier to mow the adjacent lawn.
Allow enough space in the utili-
ty area for a carport for the jalopy,
and the boat and trailer. Tool shed,
clothes lines recreation, relaxation
and entertainment. Make it as
large as possible.
The first law of landscaping is
simplicity. Follow this "law" and
the yard won't look cluttered. Al-
so, the yard will be easier to main-
In selecting and spacing plants,
remember to consider relative size
of mature plants with the size of
the area and the size of the build-
Landscaping is a job that's inter-
esting and a lot of fun for the en
tire family. Give it a try.

an explosion of violence to. sar-

by the diverse and moving love,

LESS THA ATA DIME
Now you can rid yourself of the Cinderella
drudgery of oven cleaning-even without the help
of a fairy godmother. Never again must you cope
with the mess of oven-cleaners, brushes, rubber
gloves, sponges and buckets.:
Instead, you simply latch the door on those spatters and
'spills, set a dial and your oven comes clean electrically.
Sides, top, bottom, racks and drip pan gleam like new for
less than a dime's worth of electricity!
Need we say more? Except to suggest that you see the self-
cleaning electric oven soon-at your appliance dealer's. He'll
also show you flameless units that guard against scorching
and boiling over, precision controls, rotisserie broilers-all the
marvels of modern electric cooking!
Reddy can't turn a pumpkin into a coach-yet. But every year
electricity does more and more for you.

to furnish the board such informa-
tion as may reasonably be required
to establish that said lands were
actually used for bona fide agri-
Another section of the law, Sec-
tion 193.12, Florida Statutes, re-
quires that anyone who owns or
controls land that is subject to tax-
aion shall return the same for tax-
ation to the county tax assessor
on or before April 1 of each year,
giving the character and the value
of the land.
When property zoned as agricul-
tural is diverted to other uses or
ceases to be used for agricultural
purposes, the board may classify
such property as -non-agricultural.
The board also is empowered to re-
classify agricultural lands to non-
agricultural when there is a con-
tiguous urban or metropolitan de-
velopment on two or more sides
and when the board finds that the
continued use of the land for agri-
cultural purposes will act as a de-
terrant to the timely and orderly
expansion of the community.
The Florida Forestry Association-
has urged that the return be sub-
mitted on a short form asking only
for the name and address of the
property, owner, the legal descrip-
tion of the property, the type or
types of agriculture in which the
applicant is engaged and the es-
timated value of the property.
