Objections Raised to Rates
Proposed for Water, Sewer
'What started out as discussion
over proposed- rates for water
and sewer service for Oak Grove,
to- be charged by the City of
Port. St. Joe, didn't remain a
discussion for very long Tues-
It was only a few minutes be-
fore representatives of the Coun-
ty Commission, Chairman Walter
Graham and member Leo Ken-
nedy were charging the City
Commission with padding their
costs of providing the services.
County Commissioner Rudy Pip-
pin-didn't have much to say, one
way or the other.
Things deteriorated to the
point where Commissioner Ken-
v nedy angrily charged that "You.
don't want to furnish us water
so you're pricing us out of the
The City Commission had pre-
pared a statement of their actual
costs of producing water and
furnishing sewer. Clerk Brock's
report showed that the City
spends 89c for each thousand'
gallons of water and sewer. Brock
said actual production costs of
treated water was 63c per thou-
sand gallons. Sewer collection
and treatment cost 33c per thou-
sand. He pointed out this did
not include any expenditure for
or amoritization of equipment.
Commission Chairman Walter
Graham charged that the City's
figures were wrong. He didn't
state on what basis he made his
charge and declined an offer to
let him inspect the City's books
to verify the report.,
Commissioner Kennedy said
the City was getting its expens-
es paid by City users and tax
payers thus it wouldn't cost any
more to supply Oak Grove, hence
the City should reduce the charge
to that area.
The City had offered both ser-
vices at 96c per thousand gal-

SMayor Frank Pate told Ken-
nedy that the City was very anx-
ious to furnish the services for

possible health hazard. Pate went
on to say that the Board would
not sell the services for less

below cost of providing. tihe ser-
vices and felt the citizens of the
City would not agree to such an
Commissioner Fox admitted
to the County delegation that the
City furnished its customers for
less than the 89c per thousand
gallons cost to the City. "The
difference is made up by City
property owners who pay ad va-
lorem taxes", he said, "and we
cannot ask City tax payers to
help pay for Oak Grove's water
and sewer. They will have to
bear their own costs".
After the County delegation
left, Clerk Brock announced to
the City Board that he had just
transferred $5,000 from the gen-
eral fund tax money into the
Water and Sewer fund to meet
Beginning with October 1 of
this year, the City of Port St.
Joe will be out of the business
of actively collecting garbage
and trash. After a unanimous
vote by the Board Tuesday night,

vice of Port St. Joe was awarded
a three year contract to pick up
all garbage and trash in the City
subject to certain contractual
agreements to be arrived at by
Williams' firm and the City Com-
As Commissioner Bob Fox said
it: "We will be out of the trash
and garbage business, but we
will still very' much be in the
business of seeing that the qual-
ity of service does not deterior-
ate with the new set-up".
Williams entered a bid two
months ago agreeing to serve
the City's trash and garbage
needs for a three year period
at $35,100 per year. This will
give residents twice a week pick-
up as they are now receiving.
Williams will also purchase
the City's equipment and will
operate it for a short period. He
plans to put in a "garbage train"
system which utilizes a trailer
train of small covered carts pull-
ed by a single vehicle for house
to house and a single load pack-
er which dumps the carts into
the packer and hauls the refuse
off to the dump. Williams says
he thinks this method will be
more economical to operate and
more efficient than the method
the City has been using.
The City will still bill the in-
dividual customer for the ser-
vice and all complaints, if there
are any, will be turned in to the
City Hall as the City will con-
tinue to police the collection
Although Williams has a three
year contract, the City will re-
serve the right to terminate the
agreement at the end of one

On occasion we spot a, ray of hope beaming from
amidst the murky clouds of immorality, drugs, dropouts
and general alienation that seems to darken the lives of
too many youth in our society. One sage has predicted
that because of the permissive behavior of modern youths,
they will, when they attain maturity, turn out to be among
the most strict parental generations in recent history. We
hope that this turns out to be the case; and there are
some signs to indicate that maybe he is right.
In the March 23rd edition of the "National Observer"
- there was a report on a visit to a so-called "commune" in
the "State of Washington. The reporter was greeted at
the door of the most elaborate house in the commune by a
very nude young man. They entered the living room for
the interview, where they were joined by the wife, also
During the discussion the young couple displayed the
typical, and predictable, "Anti-establishment" motivations.
SThey claimed to be both anti-capitalist and anti-commun-
ist; they just don't want to live under any authority of
., any kind.
But the most interesting-and we believe, significant
-part of the reported conversation was the fact that

They confessed to the reporter that their experimen-

had failed. "Monogamy seems to create there least amount
of tensions and provides more stability, for raising chil-,

markable "discovery" for a college graduate!
On the theory of sharing all: a female resident told
of the utter and complete failure of the system. "True
communal life just didn't work out," she said. "Everyone
contributed according to his ability, all right; but those
who had less ability seemed to have more needs." She
noted that a worker would chop firewood to heat the
house-and a drone would leave all thi doors open.
On drugs: addicts with drugs invaded the commune
a while back and didn't work at all. Now some of the
residents will not even take aspirin or coffee, much less
Well, maybe from a coldly scientific view such "com-:

us that Capitalism is destroying the Earth by its "greedy

Our memory tells us that it was Henry Taylor that

the now famed ecologists nor the writers who started the
pollution warnings 10, 15 or 20 years ago has been asked
to do anything during "Earth Day". We echo his think-

I don't think Walter Stallworth would prevaricate to me-
except about one thing fishing.
Walter has been telling me for several years now he is going
to catch a fish large enough for me to take a picture and run it in
the paper. Either Walter is pulling my leg or he is a lousy fisher-
man. He hasn't come up with the "picture fish" yet. The other
day he fed me this story about catching a 12 pound carp at the
Highland View bridge. Hum-m-m-m-. That's a fresh water fish
that normally- feeds on the bottom, striking a top water plug in
the salt water. I think I'll have to re-evaluate my opinion on whe-
ther Walter is prevaricating me or a lousy fisherman.
The lowly aspirin does it again.
The aspirin has been the stand-by for years of those who suffer
from headaches, muscular aches and pains, colds, fever, for that
tired feeling, to relieve tension, sore throats and as a gargle.
Aspirin are used for many 'other things, too numerous to men-
tion here in this space. They are sold by the billions each year.
But now the aspirin seems on the threshold of being in for
more acclaim and use. An article in a magazine the other day re-
ported that doctors, experimenting with aspirin, have found that /
this common, lowly white tablet prevents some of the causes of
heart attacks in experimental mice. An aspirin a day has pre-
vented the gathering of platelets in the blood veins, which congre-
gate causing a stoppage of the blood flow, thus a heart attack or
If this thing works out, the aspirin will no doubt rise to new
very deserved heights.
Now- what have these other white pill manufacturers to say
for their products after so many years of playing down aspirin?
Where the excitement was last week, was on Lake Wimico.
The Shellcrackers had begun their Spring run to the bed and the
fishermen started their Spring run to catch their fill of the fish
before and after they got to the bed.
Going up the Intracoastal Canal Saturday morning, looked like
the Spanish fleet trying to get away from the British. Everyone
had their, throttle wide open, heading for a favorite spot.
Ralph Walton and yours truly got in the middle of a reed bed'
and caught our limit (while still far from the legal limit) We came
up on Harry Ford just as he was reeling in a catfish about two and
a half inches long. 'I knew all along that was his speed while all
the time he brags about what a "good fisherman" he is. But, then
he's right, not everybody can catch a two and a half inch catfish.
That takes finesse.
I know this will make me unpopular, but I wish. they would
close the lake during the bedding season. We must protect the
ecology, you know; and closing the lake at the time of bedding
would give the fish a chance to spawn.

Social Security Particular About
Who Gets Your Monthly Check
A legally granted power of at- name of the payee will be changed
torney does not necessarily author- accordingly on the face of the
ize its holder to receive and cash
social security checks for someone
else. This announcement was made
today by Jerry Mye'rs, Acting Man-
ager of the Panama City Social Se-
Myers said that his office has re-
ceived several inquiries from in-
dividuals and various institutions
asking for authorization to receive
and cash social security checks
without the endorsement of the
person to whom thecheck is made
"This happens," Myers said,
"when the payee of a social securi-
ty check executes a power of at\,
torney through legal channels to,
have someone else manage his
business and financial or personal
Myers went on to say that there
is only one circumstance which al-
lows the use of power of attorney
to receive and cash. social security
checks without the payee's endorse-
ment. This one exception is "the
case where the payee of the check
grants power of attorney to a re-
sponsible banking institution or
trust company. It can only be
granted through proper execution
of a prescribed U. S. Treasury De-
partment form, when there is ade-
quate justification, ands'the Social
Security Administration determines
that such justification exists."
Myers emphasized that, except
for the one circumstance mention-
ed above, the only person who can
legally receive and negotiate or
cash a social security check is the
person shown as payee on the face
of the check. The execution of po-
wer of attorney cannot change the
name of the payee.
"If the payee of a social security
check becomes unable tb endorse
his check, or if he is mentally or
physically incompetent to manage
his social security benefits, only
the Social Security Administration
can approve someone else to serve
as his representative payee, and the
check," Myers concluded.
The Social Security Office for.
this area is located at 1135 Harri-
son Avenue, Panama City 32401.
The phone number is 763-5331. The
office is open Monday through Fri-

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW
ABOUT YOUR PRESCRIPTION:
Unlike an old friend, you cannot rely upon an old prescrip-
tion to do a thorough job... especially the same one fo'r
which it was originally intended. Drugs lose their potency
over a number of years and some increase in strength
through evaporation. Not only might a drug prove ineffec.
Strive but it may be dangerous as well. Adverse storage condi-
tions could also affect the prescription. Chemical changes
*can occur within the liquid, capsule or tablet. Then, too,
there is the constant danger of a child reaching for an old
prescription. Thinking it's candy... or simply imitating you
... he might swallow the contents.The results may be tragic.
Never depend upon a prescription lasting forever. Let your
doctor re-prescribe for your present condition... after all
lie is the expert And once you have regained your health,
always destroy the remainder of ypur prescription.
For the highest pharmaceutical standards, low prices
consistent with quality and the personal attention you
can always depend upon, bring your prescriptions to
