SCommission Has Wrist Slapped

The Gulf County Commission
had its wrist slapped by the State
IIF Board Tuesday for failing to'
secure a permit before doing
maintenance work on a drain
Bill Davis, a representative of
the Trustees from the HEF Board
told ;the Board they illegally
dredged out the drain ditch and
may face the prospect' of hauling
off the spoil removed from the
ditch and piled to the side.
"The problem" said Davis, "is
that you dug the ditch out below
mean high water mark where it
empties into St. Joseph Bay and
that's against the rules and regu-
lations governing the Bay in its
designation as an aquatic pre-
Board Chairman Silas Player
said, "Mr. Davis contacted me
about this problem a few days
ago and. I didn't. know what he
was talking about. We had dug
no new ditches that I knew of.

about the one we were cleaning

The Gulf County Board of
Commissioners has cut its--rate
of taxing to come 'within the
mandatory 10 mill limit set by

budget has been set at 10.5, in-

: In dollars, the County budget
shows a $153,487 increase over
last year for a total of $1,373,-
781.55. Almost the entire in-
crease is reflected in the Road

will receive almost this much
from the seventh and eighth cent
of state gasoline taxes for road
construction, and maintenance.
Of the increases the Fine and
Forfeiture Fund allows the lar-.
gest At $31,900.00. This fund
finances the Sheriff's DepartS:

operation of the Circuit Court.
The Sheriff's office took the
bite in this fund with a $33,000
increase. Some reductions were
shown in other areas.
The Road and Bridge Fund
came in for a $121,000 increase
but this was,due to the receipt

The only other significant in-
creases in the budget were re-

The Reserve Account Fund has
an increase of $5,100 and the
General Fund has grown by $4,-
500 over last year.
The General Fund requires al-
most half of the entire budget
and has been pegged at $581,071.
Increases within the budget show
that County Commissioners Ad-
ministrative fund will get $4,500
more than last year. The Clerk's
office will have $4,000 more.

percentage increase of any item
in the budget, jumping from

Approximately 60 employees
of the plant were idled two
weeks ago when a railroad strike
and threatened steel strikes for-
ced the plant to shut dqwn.
The rail strike- prevented the
plant from receiving shipments
of dolomite, one of the basic in-

facturing process. The threaten-.
ed steel strike curtailed orders
for Basic's product which is used
primarily in refractories used to
line blast furnaces in the mills.
time back because it was filling
in so bad, it made getting boats
in and out a problem at low
tide. The county gave Presnell
permission to do so and instruct-
ed him to apply for a state per-
mit. Presnell found that the
state permit necessitated getting
a marine biologist inspection and
payment to the state of 50c for
each cubic, yard of dirt removed
from the ditch so he abandoned
the project as too expensive.
Later, the County moved in
under its maintenance program
and got caught in the act.
Davis informed the Board that
a marine biologist will still have
to inspect the spoil pile and if
it is considered damaging to ma-
rine life, it will be necessary to
haul the spoil out by truck. En-
gineer Max Kilbourn entered his
objections to this stating that the
spoil pile had been there for
years and ; helps to keep the
drainage ditch from filling in.
Davis told the Board that in
order to prevent any further
problems, the County should file
with his department a ,complete
map of the Bay listing any drain
ditches they have emptying wa-
ter into that body and apply for
a three year maintenance permit.
He said this was required on any
dredging or digging below the
mean high water mark.
The County has about six or
seven drainage ditches emptying
into the Bay. |
Kilbourn took a permit appli-
cation from Davis and said he
would prepare the necessary
maps and papers to apply for
- the three year. permit. Later in
the meeting he remarked that
from studying the application
papers, he would need to provide
over 500 maps with the permit.
Pridgeon said that due to the
large number still unsold, he
expects a last-minute rush next
week by tag buyers. In light of
this expected event, Pridgeon
said that tag purchases which
involve a transfer of title should
be made early. "This operation
takes a while, and we won't be
able to take care of it on the
last day, with the rush for pur-
chases we are expecting."

a valdr unsurpassed in history. No one would want to
deny the great parts 'played by the British and Russians
in winning the war in Eurbpe, but neither can it be denied
that without America our allies would have lost.
We did not lose the Korean War; we simply halted it
at the 38th Parallel. ,Nor has the war..'in Vietnam been
lost. We have kept South Vietnam freed as well as Laos

invasions, the rerouting of a rail-
road, the ravages of mighty for-
est fires and other causes.
Florida's ghost towns are
found scattered from the pan-
handle to the Keys. Each has a
different story to tell. Mr. Warn-
ke has done a masterful job in
gathering authentic material for
'his book which is worthy of a
place in my library, particularly
those folks who are, interested
in Florida history.
As you and I travel Florida's
superhighways and visit her
developed areas, it is difficult
to even imagine that here and
there, perhaps only a short dis-
tance off the beaten path, lie
the remains of what in an earlier
day was a thriving town or set-
tlement. Little remains now but
a bit of ancient masonry, frag-
ments of, pottery, an ox cart
yoke, a broken wheel, remains
of weatherbeaten ramshackle
and the like. Perhaps a few lone-
some, overgrown grave stones in'
an ancient cemetery.
Let's consider the long forgot-
ten town of Magnolia in Wakul-
la County. Warnke describes it
today as follows:
"Palmetto thickets and thorny
wild blackberry bushes now
cover the ground. The sweetness
of jasmine hovers in the air and
only the lonely cry of a jay bird
breaks the silence of the piney
woods. One walks along the
weedy trails in search of the re-
mains of Magnolia but the town
is gone. Oh, there are rements
to be sure. An occasional hand-
made brick, a piece of sun-pur-
pled glass can be scuffed to the
surface of the pine needles that

But Bill was bent on proving a point (he thought).

biggest!" With that he wrapped his belt around my mid-

On the question of the No-Fault
divorce law, Chapman said he vot-
ed for the bill. He felt that if a
couple felt they could no longer,
live together, hardship in secur-!

lege any specific grounds for di-
"but the taxes realized from this

The Sharkettes offered their
appreciation to Mrs. Minnie

many parents who helped make
the trip a successful one.
The Department of Transpor-
tation has prepared special signs
warning of overhead high volt-
age power lines, which will be
placed in 61 areas throughout
the state where lines run above
a boat ramp or between the
ramp and the road.

.As you know, on June 3 two
teenagers were killed and anoth-
er seriously injured when the
aluminum mast of their sailboat
came in contact with a 12,000
volt line at a wayside park boat
ramp approximately 10 miles
east of Carrabelle.
Although the power line was
25 feet, 8 inches above the
ground, which is considerably
above the 18 foot minimum clear-
ance required by the National
Electrical Safety Code, and lo-
cated 72 feet from the water
line and boat ramp, the youths
apparently were eager to erect
the mast on their boat and in
their haste, failed to notice the
high voltage lines which were
directly above their boat trailer.
In order to prevent any fur-
ther tragic accidents, DOT is
placing the new warning signs
throughout the state in areas
similar to that in which the June

A report to our cUstomers regarding electric rates
Four years ago,
when I became Pres-
ident of Florida
I said that our
one objective was to
keep lowering the
cost of electricity.
And due to careful
cost-cutting, we were
able to lower rates
five times since Jan-
uary 1968. We did this
in the face of mount-
ing inflation and con-
stantly rising costs
of doing business.
Today we are forced to admit that infla-
tionary pressures have overwhelmed us.
Despite our strict cost-cutting campaign, .
in effect in every department within our
company, we findit necessary to seek rate
relief by asking the Florida Public Service
Commission for a rate increase.
HOW WILL THIS AFFECT YOU?
The Florida Public Service Commissionwill
carefully examine our request. Public
hearings will be held and a decision is not
expected until sometime in 1972. Natural--
ly, until that time, your rates and your bills
will not be affected. However, to give you
an idea of how your bill might change-if
and when our request is granted-we'd
like you to know that we are asking for an
increase in our rate of return that will add
approximately twenty million dollars to'
our annual revenues.
This would mean that a residential cus-
tomer whose bill is presently running
around thirty dollars a month would find
it increased to around thirty-three dollars
and sixty cents a month.
WHY DO WE NEED THE MONEY?'
If we are to continue to provide the kind
of electric service you want, we must be
prepared to pay more for labor, for fuel,
for equipment, for environmental protec-
tion, for new taxes and for the.money we
borrow. The chart below shows yqu what
has happened in recent years to labor, fuel
and interest charges.

A NATIONWIDE PROBLEM
In the past two years, electric companies
all over the country have asked for and
received nearly one billion dollars in rate
increases. In the first half of 1971 alone,
453 million dollars in increases were
granted, while requests'for another 940
million dollars are pending. So you see,
this problem of meeting the growing elec-
trical energy needs of people is not unique
to our service area, or even to Florida.
Inflation has made beggars of us all. In
fact, Florida Power Corporation is one of
the last companies in the nation to seek
One of the major reasons we were able
to hold the line during the past two and
one-half years, and in fact buck the trend,
is because, of a far-reaching cost-cutting

WE CAN'T DELAY
In times of high interest rates and extreme
inflationary pressures, other industries can
pull in their horns and wait it out. But
using the latest methods of projecting
population gr6wth and the increased use
of electric energy of-our present cus-
tomers, we know that we must invest
more than ten million dollars each month
in the next five years. Delays in expanding
our generating and transmission facilities
will seriously endanger reliable electric
In 1960, our average residential customer
used 4,488 Kilowatt hours annually. In
1970, this more than doubled to 9,415 Kilo-
watt hours annually. If yours is an a average
home, you'll probably be using11,600 Kilo-
watt hours by 1974. We must be ready.

campaign within our company. As I-.men-
tioned, this program is in effect in every
department and at every level. In the face
of your expanding need for electric service
and our commitment to provide it, each
Florida Power Corporation employee has
taken it upon himself to pull more weight.
We have frozen our employment total, and
I personally review every request for
expansion. We have become more flexible
in our standards regarding the salvage and
recycling of equipment and materials. We
must "make-do" as long as service stan-
dards are kept high.
Our advertising and sales promotion bud-
gets have been reduced. The objective of
our advertising is to be helpful, informa-
tive and promote electric use only where
it would serve to better balance our capa-
city to deliver. (For example, our resources
would be more efficiently employed if
people used more electricity during the
late evening and nighttime hours, as well
as throughout the entire winter.) Each
department has cut its expense budget and
we've drastically cut our auto fleet, replac-
ing it with individual mileage allowances.
We see no"end to inflationary influences,
so now, more than ever, we are dedicating
ourselves to squeeze every bit of capacity
and service out of every dollar. We know
we must all work harder and smarter.
OUR PLEDGE TO YOU
We recognize that our primary responsi-
bility is to provide you with adequate
electric energy at the lowest possible cost,
and with due regard for our environment.
(Environmental protection techniques and
construction procedures will add approx-
imately 20 million dollars to the cost of
our next generating plant.)
I know that talk of increased electric rates
is distasteful, yet as every housewife
knows, th price of everything seems to
leap aheadalmost daily.
I write this report to let all our customers
know that the folks at Florida Power are
concerned with meeting their obligations
and that our decision to ask for rate relief
did not come easily.
I want to keep you fully informed. If you
have any questions, I hope you'll write tf,

The use of prescriptions in dentistry is a fairly recent de-
velopment. Dueto the discovery and.application of certain
types of drugs, the practice is rapidly expanding. Tranquil-
izers, because of their apprehension-curbing nature, have
Proved helpful with patients undergoing major dental work.
By relaxing the patient in this way, the dentist can go about
his work more efficiently. Analgesics and antibiotics are
also proven aids in dental therapy. They speed healing and
prevent or fight infection. These\new applications of pre-
scription drugs demonstrate the diverse role pharmaceuti-
cals play in our lives. Now, when your dentistprescrlbes,
you receive the same benefits of modem medical research
as when your physician prescribes. And when you have
regular physical examinations don't neglect to have your
.teeth checked. Make an appointment with your dentist when
you make one with your doctor. As matter of fact, why not
phone for an appointment today?

After a month delay in study-
iAg bids' and plans, the County
Commission reluctantly accept-
ed a bid from Kolmetz Construe-
- pont iman-of'Panama City to
construct a new Mosquito Con-
trol headquarters building here
in Port St. Joe.'
The reluctance, especially on
the part of Commissioners Rudy
Pippin and. Leo Kennedy, was
due to the bid which came in.at
$79,470. Pippin wanted to nego-
tiate with Kolmetz for ways to
cut the price and Kennedy want-
.ed .to put the building up,. with
County labbr. Kennedy said he
had been told the building
could be built for around $40,-
000 or ,about$3.00 a square ,foot.
Kolmetz ibid was approximately
$8.00 a square. foot.
Kolmetz bid was the lowest of
four received; all of which were
within '$5,000 of each other.
Clerk of the Court George Y.,
Core remarked that the County
had the money in a construction
fund and Mosquito Control Su-
pervisor C. E. Daniell remarked
that the state program would
pay 21 per cent of the cost.

The money was held back. due
to deficiencies in the construc-
