Handle Like Eggs
It takes some doing to handle a 181,000 pound piece of ma-.
chinery like it was a dozen very fragile eggs, but that was the task
of Flamingo Riggers and Haulers of Tampa last week as they removed
this giant generator from a flat car and, transported it to the Florida
Power Corporation sub-station on 10th Street. After getting a low-
boy trailer rigged and blocked up beside the flatcar, the riggers at-
tached two wench trucks to both ends pf the machinery, and slid it
across greased railroad rails onto the '6wboy. The transfer opera-
tion took less than five minutes. Getting ready took a day. The
generator was transferred to a concrete pad at FPC's sub-station on
Monday of this week. The generator will handle periods of peak
power demand in the Port St. Joe area up to 17,000 KW. Installa-
tion of the generator nearly doubles the power capacity available to
the Port St. Joe area. Installation of the power generating equip-
ment is estimated to cost about $1.5 million.

in 1969 over the prior year's to-
tal of 301,713 tons, according to
information released this week
by the office of the U. S. Army
Corps fo Engineers at Mobile,
Alabama. The Corps released in-
formation showing substantial
gains by many ports and water-
ways on Florida's west Gulf
The Gulf County Canal con-
necting Port St. Joe with the
Gulf Intracoastal Waterway, tra-
versing an inland land cut in
this section, tallied 240,801 tons
in 1969, an increase over the 117,-
641 tons accounted for in 1968.

The Apalachicola, Chattahoo-
chee and Flint River system, nav-
igable for water traffic inland to
Bainbridge, Georgia, on the Flint
River and to Columbus, Georgia
and Phenix City, Alabama, on
the Chattahoochee, showed an in-
crease of over 38 percent, with
677,259 tons of 'waterborne com-
merce in 1969 compared to 489,-
267 tons in 1968.
Water shipments on the St.
Marks River showed a slight de-
crease, totaling 632,276 tons,
compared to 654,059 tons in 1968.
The small fishing port of Pana-

Water, Sewer for New Subdivision
The City Commission set ma-
chinery in motion Tuesday night
to develop the new Millview Ad-
dition, Unit 3, in North Port St.
Joe. The Board had cost esti-
mates available for installing
water and sewer service to the
. new subdivision and began tak-
ing steps to sell revenue certifi-
cates to finance the project.
Water and Sewer Commission-
er Bob Fox reported that prelim-
inary estimates that the complete
project will cost in the neighbor-
hood of $110,000, with half of
the cost to be borne by the City
and half to be assessed against
the 110 lots in the subdivision.
The revenue certificates would
be repayable over a 10 year per-
iod at 6% interest per year.
A delegation was on hand
from the North Port St. Joe area
to request that the new subdivi-
sion be made ready for build-
ing, but the Board had already
started making plans along this
line over a month ago.
A zoning classification for the
area was delayed until the next
meeting of the Board. The think-
ing now is to make part of the
area R-1A which is single family
dwellings with set-back restric-
tions and R-l, which would per-
mit multiple family family dwel-
lings as well as single dwellings.
Both restrictions call for nicer
homes to be built in the areas.
In other items of business, the
Board appointed Mayor Frank
Pate as its, official delegate to
the October meeting of the Flor-
ida League of Municipalities.
The Board agreed to advertise
for bids on materials to pave
Avenue A. The Board is purchas-
ing the materials and the Coun-
ty is doing the work in a joint
venture on the project.
The Board also agreed to ex-
tend the concession at the For-
est Park baseball fields by an ad-
ditional 12 feet.

compared to 30,870 tons in 1968.

School Board Goes
To Court Friday
The Gulf County School Board
will appear in U. S. District
Court before Judge David Mid-
diebrooks to defend their plan
for integration of the Port St.
Joe area schools tomorrow. The
hearing will be held in /Tallahas-
Representatives of the Health,
Education and Welfare depart-
ment will also be on hand to de-
fend a plan which they have
prepared for the Port St. Joe
Both plans are practically iden-
tical, with but one glaring dif-
ference. HEW's plan would place,
all elementary age students in
grades K, 1 and 2 North of Sev-
enth Street in Port St. Joe in
the Highland View Elementary
School and all elementary age
students in the same area in
grades 3-6 in the Washington
Elementary School. (Gulf's plan
designates the Washington and
Highland View schools as neigh-
borhood schools and places all
elementary students south of
First Street in the Port St. 'Joe
Elementary School .
Open Til Saturday
Mrs. Dessie Lee Parker, Super-
visor of Elections reminds peo-
ple who are not registered and
who wish to vote in the Septem-
ber primaries, to register now
or they will not be able to vote.
Mrs. Parker said her books
will be open until Saturday, Au-
gust 8 to register new voters.
Anyone who has moved to the
county or has become old enough
to vote since last election should
apply at her office and register.
School Board Budget
Hearing Is Postponed
A hearing scheduled for to-
morrow for the 1970-71 budget
for the Gulf County School Board
has been postponed, according to
Superintendent Marion Craig.
Craig said the postponement
of the hearing is necessary be-
cause the Board and their attor-
ney must be in federal court to-
morrow to support their plans
for integration of Gulf County
The budget hearing has been
re-scheduled for Monday, August
10 at 5:00 p.m. in the School
Board meeting room in the
ing and Urban Development, an
agency of the Federal govern-
ment, in Washington, D. C.
Bill Campbell, with the State
Treasurer's Office in Tallahassee
appeared before the Board at the
request of Board Attorney, Wil-
liam J. Rish, to explain how the
City could be one of a group of
41 communities in Florida al-
ready approved or seeking appro-
val for the insurance. Campbell
explained that the Treasurer's of-
fice, although it regulated insur-
ance in the State of Florida, had
nothing to do with the flood in-
surance, other than trying to
serve as a source of information
for Florida cities wishing to
come under the program.
Campbell said the program is
sponsored and partially funded
by the Federal government with
private insurance companies par-
ticipating. All rates are set by
the Government. "Presently",
Campbell said, "rates are high
and expected to go higher. Rates
are now 40c per $100 on single
family dwellings and 50c per
$100 on contents." Presently cov-
erage is limited to $17,500 on sin-
gle family dwellings and $5,000
The Board learned that in or-
der to secure the insurance ser-
vice, the City must go through
considerable red tape. A land use"
map must be- provided setting
out areas susceptible to flooding
and elevation limits for floor je-
vels established in a rq-vamped
building code. "Flood insurance
is risky as well as costly", Camp-
bell said "and the program is de-
signed as much to coerce build-
ing habits which will prevent pos-
sible flood damage as well as
provide a source of revenue for
damage which does occur.
Campbell pointed out that un-
til the present program was ini-
tiated by the Federal govern-

Taken by Death
Mrs. Scottie Kemp, age 83,
passed away Saturday morning
in a Panama City hospital follow-
ing a lingering illness. Mrs.
Kemp was a resident of Mexico
Beach. Before her retirement,
she was a registered laboratory
and X-ray technician.
Mrs. Kemp is survived ;by one
daughter, Mrs. Vriginia K. Rice
of Mexico Beach; one grandson,
James R .Wilson of Laconia, N.
H; four great grandchildren;
two sisters, Mrs. C. E. Summer
of Columbus, Miss., and Mrs.

Requiem Mass was said at 11
a.m. Monday by Rev. Father Wil-
liam A. Crowe at St. Joseph's Ca-
tholic Church. Interment follow-
ed in the family plot of. Holly
Hill Cemetery in Port St. Joe.
Active pallbearers were Roy
Garrett, Bubber Cathy, Charles
Lowery, Marvin Shemfessel, John
Kramer, LeRoy Martz.
All services were under the di-
rection of Comforter Funeral
ment, flood insurance was unob-
tainable anywhere in the world
due to the high risk involved.
"This same high risk will prob-
ably bring about several changes
in this plan when some exper-
ience is felt on flood damage".

St. Joseph Tel. & Tel. Getting Ready for DDD Here On January 1
As of January, 1971, Direct Dis-
tance Dialing service becomes a
reality for the St. Joseph Tele-
phone and Telegraph Company,
according to B. R. Gibson, Jr.,
Vice-President of the St. oJseph
Telephone and Telegraph Com-
pany. Direct Distance Dialing
< (DDD) is the revolutionary, do-
it-yourself development that will
enable all telephone customers'
to dial long-distance calls direct
without operator assistance.
4 The DDD equipment now be-
ing installed is a product of
Stromberg-Carlson of Rochester,
New York. This company has
been a leading manufacturer of
telephone equipment since 1894.
The decision to purchase this
Stromberg Carlson equipment
was made after exhaustive stu-
dies indicated that it would( af-
ford maximum accuracy, speed
and reliability.' Revolutionary
communication developments are
not new to Stromberg-Carlson.
The company's engineers have
developed many new and amaz-
ing communications improve-
ments and inventions.
At the present time, only sta-
tion-to-station calls can be mhde
to DDD area. These calls, how-
ever, are the fastest and lowest/
costing; more and more people
are realizing the. advantages of
this method of long-distance call-
ing. Person-to-person, collect,
credit card and pay station calls
still require operator supervision.
If you have a private line or
two party line, your DDD calls
will automatically be identified
as to your telephone number for
billing purposes. If you have ser-
vice other than one or two party
service, the operator will come
in on the line and ask you for
your number so that we may re-
cord this information for billing
Complete customer instruc-
tions will be given to all sub-.
The procedure for making a
DDD call is as follows:
1. Lift the handset and listen
for dial tone.
2. Dial the access number one.
This connects you with the long-
3. Dial the appropriate DDD
area code for a city when that
city is outside of your own DDD
or home area. This will route
your call directly to the part of
the country you want to reach.
Your DDD area or home area,
the area code for the part of
the country you are calling, as
well as the other area codes you
may call will be listed in your
4. Dial the desired telephone
5. If you have one or two par-
ty service, this is all that is re-
quired; however, if you have any
other type srevice, an operator
will be signalled automatically
and connected to your line. The
operator will ask for youfr num-
ber. After you give the operator
your number, she will discon-
nect from your line and your
call will be automatically com-
As an example, to dial any
telephone number from local tpl-
ephone numbers simply dial: Ac-
cess Code, 1; Area Code, xxx, Tel-
ephone number, xxx-xxxx.
As soon as the called party an-
swers, automatic timing equip-
ment takes over and an electro-
mechanical device is connected
to the trunk signaling circuit.
This machine times the duration
of your conversation and records
on punched paper tape the dura-
tion of the call and the exact
time of day your call was made,
and the date. The conversation
is not recorded-in fact, it is im-
possible for the equipment to do
so because it is connected to the
signaling circuit only, and not to
the circuits carrying conversa-
The information recorded on
the tape is then transferred from
the tape to an accounting record.
Each record will represent a
long-distance call and each one
will contain all the information
necessary for allocating the char-
ges to you.
Mr. Gibson states, "This is
just another step in our com-
pany's plan to provide the most
modern equipment available for

Tell Us Something New
The election campaign is only weeks old and already
some of the candidates are beginning to insult the intelli-
gence of the ordinary citizen. The mose frequent viola-
tors of this, on a national scene, are the Democratic candi-
dates. This isn't to slur the Democratic candidates nor
to say that we are opposed to them because they are Dem-
ocrats. We will cast our vote for whom we consider the
best man in every race, regardless of his political affilia-
tion. We are penning these few words, however, to say
that Democrats (and Republicans) who resort to using,
some of the arguments they are turning out these days.
will alienate our vote and the vote of many others if they
One Senate candidate the other day assailed other
senate hopefuls "for not devoting enough attention to the
Southeast Asia and Mideast conflicts. The statement was
made by a Democrat and, evidently, was aimed at Repub-
licans and the administration as a whole. Anyone who
reads the papers even occasionally, realizes that the ad-
ministration is constantly aware of the crises in these
areas, and have been ever since the Koreans marched
across the 38th Parallel and the Jews took Palestine from
the British. They have been concerned since that time-
both Democrats and Republicans alike. If these candidates
want to tell us something new and worth chewing on, let
them tell us what they would do in this situation.
Another statement by a candidate reported that
"world peace is hanging in a delicate balance". Is it now!
When hasn't it? What does this candidate purport to do
about it? This is what we want to know. And if the can-
didate's plan sounds feasible to us, we might vote for him.
Again a candidate struck at the "inflationary spiral"
and the recently announced "$2.9 billion federal deficit".
These pronouncements were made by a Democrat.
One doesn't even have to half way keep up with cur-
rent events to know that the "inflationary spiral"' began
back in 1946, with a Democrat in the White House and
has continued through both Democrat and Republican ad-
ministrations. It's childish to blame this on the current
administration, alone. Let's be adults in making our char-,
ges and offer solutions all the while.
As for the deficit in the budget, we would ask when
the budget has been balanced in the last 10 years ... or
even 20 years? Only once that we can recall offhand, and
that in the Eisenhower administration. As a citizen, we
think it shows progress to reduce our annual deficit from
the annual five to 12 billions of dollars it has consistently
run to only $2.9 billion. This deficit was caused only by
a lessening of tax revenues. Less spending than was an-
ticipated was a fact during the last fiscal year, but so was
less revenue than7 anticipated a fact. A surplus was pre-
dicted and worked for, but revenue decreases made this
So Mr. candidate, don't keep feeding us the same old
line. We have now become accustomed to them through
administration after administration. Tell us what you
plan to do; something we can weigh against the status
quo and make an intelligent decision. We cannot make
this important decision on utterings seemingly designed
to question our intelligence or cognizance of the state of
What You Can Do
Tomorrow our Gulf County Board of Public Instruc-
tion goes to court to defend a school mix plan which has
been asked for by the citizens of our county. Both black
iand white citizens of the County have expressed themselves
in numerous meetings over the past two years and come
up with a program which both bends to the will of the U.
S. Supreme Court in requiring schools in which both black
and white can get a quality education in equal facilities
with no child of any race being denied free access to the
public facilities available for educative purposes.
Everyone of both races in Gulf .County has given
way in their feelings of the ideal situation to arrive at
a system which we believe will do away with favoritism,
and in time, prejudice among our people.
Too Late To Classify

environment for granted. We ad-

fresh air, clean water, natural
resources, recreation areas and
Florida, California and other

might do to our environment.
Would they bring more air and

posed projects, we took another

Life A Day Is
Saved On Roads
A life a day has been saved on
Florida highways so far this month.
Fatality figures released today
(7-28) by the Florida Highway Pa-
trol confirm a reduction in deaths
of 27 on Florida roads during the
first 27 days of July.
"Fatalities for July were placed
at 126, as of 4:00 p.m. on July 27,
compared with 153 killed during
the month of July in 1969," report-
ed Colonel Reid Clifton. Director
of the Florida Highway Patrol.
Colonel Clifton pointed to the re-
cently initiated Governor's highway
safety program ARRIVE ALIVE as
a factor in the reduction of traffic
deaths. The program, which began
July 1, is based on a state wide ef-
fort (o public awareness in stepping
up enforcement by all law enfo:ce-
Violations handled by the Flor-
ida Highway Patrol alone during
the first 27 days of July numbered
ARRIVE ALIVE is a continuation
of the COURTEOUS INTIMIDA-
TION program. Comparative fi-
gures for the year to date show
1,229 killed on Florida highways in
1970, as compared with 1,252 killed
"These figures are especially im-
pressive when you consider safety
officials expect percentage ,increase
each year in fatalities, instead of
a decrease," said Clifton.
