Port St. Joe took its firststep Monday afternoon to--
ward a realistic look at where we've been, how far we've
come and, more specifically, where we should go from
Recently the City Commission appointed a six-man
Comprehensive Development Committee to work with the
Florida Development Commission and explore a course of
action for future growth. One side-purpose of this target
of future growth will be to dovetail present growth in with
,.a plan that will serve for the futuree.as well .as .for the
present. This, we think, is sound planning aild siind busi-
ness on the part of the Commission.
The planning will take into consideration such sub-
jects as: what were our growth causes and areas in the
past; what will the City need in the way of services, and
where should they be located; how should the enlarged
SCity be zoned in order to allow for orderly growth; what'
`will be needed in the way of recreation, etc.
The City has entered into a working agreement with
the Florida Development Commission to compile statistics
Sand make suggestions for baring for anticipated increases
in population. We think this is good because an outsider,
an outsider with an experienced eye for statistics, can
often bring facts to light that, natives tend to gloss over
Because of familiarity.
The first report from the CO-mmission shows some
enlightening statistics. For instance, our City -is growing
at the rate of about 30 new jobs per year. This is a pretty
healthy growth rate.
Of particular interest to us were the reasons given for
It was thirty 'years ago this year that Uncle, Sam
very confidently set a price tag on our kids. Uncle said
$600, and since 1939 that has been the figure established
by the Internal Revenue Code. That is what the-govern-
ment allows us for each dependent child, as a deduction
on our income tax.
Now there appears in the press a report that welfareL
recipients are campaigning for a minimum annual hand-
out of at least $4,400. That, the dole-takers say,. is the
rock bottom income which would insure their dignity and
relief from harassment.
Might .that be a proper new deduction for a man and
wife filing a joint federal income tax return?
There are across this land several million man and
wife taxpayers who were not yet born in 1939. Yet they-
are feeding, clothing and educating children under that
ridiculous and antiquated $600 deduction per dependent.
R n Uncle Sam looked at the problem of establishing
ndency "allowances" within programs more modern
the income tax he chose to be infinitely more gen-
W'terous. : e
We are allowed $50 a month deduction for each of
our growth. The report stated, in part:
"Port St. Joe has a unique opportunity to benefit
by the wise use of its natural resources of timber,
sea water, beaches and sea products. With resource
oriented industry the provision of transportation and
goods handled facilities is paramount. Consequently
the Gulf County Canal connecting with the Intra-
coastal Waterway Canal, the railroad and dock facili-
ties will play a major role in future growth of the
City's economy. The docking facilities, and a 37 foot
depth channel have been crucial to past development
The report goes on to say:
"A key factor in attracting new growth is the
attractive climate, beaches, sports activity and general
good living which the Gulf vicinity can provide and
which the city must protect from unwise use."
The report further recommends possible trucking or
warehousing complex and a municipal airport to take care
of the type growth factors that have been ours in the
The airport and trucking terminal we don't have; the
water transportation we do have. It would seem prudent
to us, based on past experience, .that we should do some-
thing to preserve that nectar which has attracted the busy
industrial bee to our area our port facilities. We rec-
ognize the needs for the airport and terminal, but it would
seem that we could at least maintain growth by looking
to our port and working for its preservation, and improve-
ment. If it attracted growth in the past, it will do so in
the" future also.

It's both very unusual and very gratifying to see the singleness

toward our two local basketball teams. It's sort. of unusual for Port

of capturing two state basketball, crowns. *

to the team victories they achieved in the preliminary tournaments.

thank thb people of our area for
their splendid response to the
performance of The Spurrlows

aging to know that the people

able to have The Spurrlows re-
turn to Port St. Joe next year.

Well, here it is only eight days until the first day of Spring and
the weather man hasn't look at his calender yet. At least this would
appear to be the case since the "uniform for the day" is still, defi-
nitely, "something warm".
an We read where the "Sunshine Law" has already been. defeated
uf- by the Legislature which hasn't even gone into session yet.
od Government in the Sunshine, we think, is imperative to our style
es. of Government. Let's not give anyone the opportunity to hide.
to anything under a bushel.
a The "Sunshine Law" went so far as to state that all meetings
Iou of governmental officials should be held publicly. The theory
ns behind this is good. Everyone should have the opportunity to
"hear what is going on since the public pays the bill for what goes
on. It is the public's business. But, we are prone to allow for clos-
ed door meetings for discussion and discussion only. Any decision
should be made publicly in the "Sunshine". In the case of ex-
tremely controversial subjects, which would prompt the closed
door discussions in the first place, the pros and cons should be
fully explained publicly prior to the vote.
We personally like the City Commission method of three read-
ings, publicly, of any new law passed, giving everybody a chance
to acquaint themselves of what's coming off ... before it does.
S We didn't appreciate the visit paid our kids by Panama City
ar, hoodlums last Saturday night. We don't have that kind of activi- !
In- ties here in our City and we don't appreciate that type "paying us
dd a visit". 'We use the word "hoodlum" correctly. When one gets
ce a fight going and uses knives and other deadly instruments, he is
1ly a "hoodlum".
is Some of our kids could have been badly hurt or even killed.

it makes go_6 sense to serve chicken often. It's economical,
versatile, nutritious and in most cases quick and easy to pre-
pare. Today, the preferred and highly featured chickens are
the quick cooking varieties-the popular broiler-fryer chicken.
These are tender, young chickens from 11/2 to 4 lbs. Chicken
may, be purchased fresh, frozen or cooked, whole or in
parts. Left whole, the larger birds can be stuffed qnd roasted
or featured on the rotisserie. Cut in half or quarters, they can
be baked, broiled, deep fried, southern fried, sauteed, barbe-
cued and cooked with various sauces, in casseroles.

of the Woman's Auxiliary of the

March 9 was National Woman's

morning service was under the
direction of the chapter of the
local church. A program on

The final part of the Sunday
program was the crowning of the

the Girl's Auxiliary was eligible
to compete for this title. Each
girl prepared containers with her
picture and the information of

ed, one vote .was counted for the
contestant. All the money raised
goes into the Girl's,, Auxiliary
treasury and will be used for
the benefit of the local chapter.
Miss Atkins was crowned by

"What's the best way to hedge
against the declining dollar? Put
money in the bank", David Carl,
Gaskin, president of the Wewa-
hitchka State Bank told the Rotary
Club last Thursday.
Gaskin spent a portion of his
time explaining that all savings
methods are being affected by the
ballooning inflation in the nation
today and telling of the paradoxes
The most interesting portion of
talk dealt with the rapidly grow-
ing agriculture program now under
way in Gulf County by large land
owners. At present this is' being
done by Gulf Timberlands and
First American Farms. Gaskin pre-
dicted that other large land own-
ers would get into the business us-
ing land that is now unprofitable
in the production of pine trees.
Gaskin said that during the next
decade, Gulf County should see
great strides ,in agriculture. Land
now being developed is fertile soil
but largely unproductive in tree
farming due to wetness. "Very
little land now being used for tim-
ber production will be used for
agricultural purposes", he said,
"but the drain program by agricul-
turalists for planting purposes will
help the adjoining timber areas by
