The County has exercised a
clause in the new state law

In the meantime, the Coun-

large amount of criticism at

The opposition, did not ap-

however. Only one parent,

and he only wanted a full

to prevent large numbers of

are estimated to cost around
$10,000 each:

.Like it is everywhere, the
energy crisis came in for its
share of discussion at the
meeting Tuesday.
Commissioner T. D. Whit-
field' suggested the Board
consider abolishing its night
meeting "to save energy".
This went over like the
proverbial lead balloon with
Whitfield drawing support
only from Commissioner
Lamar Davis.
Commissioner Eldridge
Money observed he didn't
think the Board met enough
now to adequately take care
of County business and give
the public an opportunity to
attend and take part. Money
drew support from Commis-
sioner Graham and the
Chairman, S. C. Player.
The Board was also re-
quested by the Association of
County Commissioners to es-
tablish a Fuel Oil Board to
assure those who needed it
receiving an adequate supply
of fuel oil.

In a joint effort to supply
the Gulf ,of Mexico with an
artificial reef, citizens of Port
St. Joe, Mexico Beach and
Gulf County, working with
the Port St. Joe Kiwanis
Club, this week dumped the
first of 10 barge loads of junk
cars nine miles south-south-
west of Mexico Beach in the.
Gulf of Mexico.
It is expected that small
fish will be attacked to the
reef immediately and that
large fish will be plentiful by
next spring.
The project required a per-

mit that took four years to
obtain, largely through the
efforts of' the Port St. Joe
Kiwanis Club, and calls for
200 cars to be collected and
shipped to the reef site.
The barge was obtained by
31 local businessmen who
signed a note for $8,000-
$6,000 to buy .it and $2,000 for
repairs. The repairs were
necessary because the barge
had been cut in half.

Mildly Irritating

We would be remiss from our
duty as editor if we didn't express
our views concerning the gasoline
shortage which seems to be a
considerable problem for part of
our nation and only a minor prob-
lem for other parts.
Here in Port St. Joe, only
minor inconvenience has been ex-
perienced so far, with some sta-
tions running out near the end of
the month. .This'. is a decided
hardship for them ,since they can't
make money (resulting in their
livelihood) if they can't sell gaso-
line. For the customer, though, the
problem has been only mildly irri-
We feel like many others in the
Northern part of Florida:, that the
crisis will be over when the price of
gasoline has been increased to 60c
to 70c a gallon. When you consider

The rising price of gasoline will
cause consternation among, people
who like to get out and just ride.
Kids, especially, get a charge out
of getting in the family car or their
own jalopy and just riding "around.
The higher price of gasoline will
curtail this activity some.
The rising price and scarcity of
gasoline makes us realize that our
cars are using a lot of the stuff
these days. This isn't too surpris-
ing, though, when one considers
that Americans have demanded
larger, more comfortable cars with
many extras over the past,, years.
The average car of today is- larger,
more luxurious, less expensive and
use just as much ai',li r as the
l.xmir\ cars of 10 to 15 years ago
did. ,
The problem then eem? to hbe

der the fringe costs-such as fuel.
Now, we must mak. .up our
mind if we wish to cI,,ljnue with
the big cars we have d.i n.ird.-d at
a more reasonable price for fuel.

Asking too Much

Going a little further with the
ojl crisis, it makes us mad that the
Arabs and the Venezuelans would
take. advantage of the situation and
America's insatiable appetite for
oil and raise the price of crude
more than four times its price of
last January. We read where it
costs approximately 1-2 to produce
a barrel of crude oil which was
selling for about $2.50 a barrel last
January. Now the Arabs and Vene-
zuelans are asking $14.00, in round
figures, for the same barrel-of oil.
We hope the American Govern-
mlent and American oil companies
tell them, "That's too much," and

irlfii' to buy at that price.
True, this will mean a contin-
ued shortage in our ,,, intr:., but in
a very short while it would also
mean a fair price would be charg-
ed. Let's face it, America is still
the largest oil customer in the
world and the producers cannot get
th~-t- good old American dnHllkr for
their product if we i v;-i-se to buy at
their exhorbitant prices.
We hope, the nation will con-
tinue to be rtii.-l in its use of oil
until the price-gougers across the
ocean are made to realize they
need us just as much, if not more,
than we need them.


A Safe Move

- It's our understanding some
parents are disturbed by the new
school time inaugurated by the
School Board in the face of Day-
light Savings Time being decreed
for the entire nation. The parents
seem to like the early school time
and want to return to it.
We think the School Board did
the only thing they could do in face
of the time change.
School started at 8:10 prior to
the time change. If it still started
at the same time, school would
take in and be in operation for
nearly a full class period before
daylight. In our viewpoint, this
would have been an intolerable
One of the big arguments

against Daylight Savings Time for
six months out of the year was that
kids were having to wait for school
buses in the dark in late September
and October. Think what it would
be at this time of the year. Instead
of some children waiting for buses
in the early light of dawn, .all bus
students would wait in total dark-
ness. All children walking to school
would have to do it in total
darkness. Parents bringing their
children to school would have to do
it in total darkness.
We think this traffic congestion
in the dark of the morning is too
dangerous to even consider starting
school earlier than the new hours
set by the School Board. =

George and I better not leave

A few years back a crew of
us were camping on the
Chipola River up above Lost
Lake. Wandering around the
swamp with a gun on my

it started to rain. I didn't

The word got around fast and Highway 98
was pretty crowded with people, especially
kids, who were gathering to see something
they seldom get to see. Remember when it
used to be that way with airplanes?

A headline in an area daily paper the other
day said: "Church-Going Rises Despite Gasless
In all likelihood, church-going is probably
increasing BECAUSE of gassless Sunday.
Without the assurance of gasoline, people will
go to church as they should instead of going
travelling on Sunday.
We'll probably have the preachers praying
the gasoline shortage continues for a spell if
the church attendance rises very much.

Sid Ellis, the English-speaking clergy of
the St. James Episcopal Church said the other
day that Alabama lost to Notre Dame because
they had too many Baptists on the. Ala-
bama squad. Ellis said, "Those Baptists were
just too flustered at being in such close contact
with so many Roman Catholics at one time."

Ellis' comments came at Rotary Club last
Thursday. The program failed to show up and
President George Core made the day by asking
several Rotarians why Alabama lost the game.
A tape was made of the suggestions and
forwarded to Coach "Bear" Bryant so it won't
happen again.

It's evident this is an election year in
Already one has announced his intention to
run for the seat in the Senate being vacated by
Mallory Home. Quincy's Pat Thomas is the
first at the gate with more surely to follow.
Also up for election, will be our Governor,
the Cabinet, two County Commissioners, three
School Board members, Senators and Con-
In Florida, the big expectation is going to
be who will run for Governor and who will
challenge Senator Edward Gurney for his seat.
The Governor's race will draw a few
hopefuls, as usual, but that of Senator Gurney
will probably draw the most interest. I
understand Tom Adams has given up his idea
to unseat Gurney and this idea has been
quickly c,,'ped up by Secretary of State Dick
Stnri,, Shtn>a says he still hl-sn't made up his
mind, but it has been the usual experience that
when a politician says he is thinking of
running, he is only i(riiii. to get up the money
and backing to.make the race. Since Stii-. is a
millionaire, he's more than Ihkle just trying to
make up his mine whether or not he would like
the climate in Washington.
Someone wrote the other day that since
American's were obsessed with trying to elect
a "Mr. Clean" to every office in the wake of
the W.i'er.,ite iila1l. Governor Askew will
probably be a shoo-in for re-election. The
Governor will pr.ibohly be formidable opposi-

By James C. Robinson
Manager, Social Security

Often someone asks whet-
her or not he should buy a
book about social security
that has been advertised in a

' on radio or TV. The question
-is not Qpe that can be answer-
ed with a simple yes or no.
A few facts to start with:
. You can get reliable informa-
tion about social security, at
no charge, from your social
-security office. You can get


leaflets and booklets there,
too-again, no charge (but if
you want to buy a lot of
copies to give to other people,
we'll tell you how to get them
from the Government Print-
ing Office.) Social Security
'booklets have to be revised
from time to time because of
changes in the law. Booklets
from social security are
revised whenever the law is

before you decide to get all
your information about social

me say that is not exactly
what I mean.
You may have read some
of our leaflets without finding

know. You may -i .".- with

better if you get part of your

would never say "'don't listen

you do want to get social

First, don't pass up the
best source. Until you have
talked with us, i'n read our

be well informed about social

Mexico Beach Doesn't

Like Strings On Gift


By John Field
The Town Council of Mex-
ico Beach temporarily reject-
ed the offer of a donation of
property totaling 120 x 170
feet; including one partially
completed building 30 x 48
feet. This donation was offer-
ed by the Volunteer Fire
-Association of Mexico Beach.
The Volunteer Fire Asso-
ciation is a chartered non-
-.profit organization sanctioned
,",by the State of Florida and, is
therefore, subject to the laws,
rules and regulations govern-
-ing the disposition of assets
=upon disbandment.
The Volunteer Fire Associ-
ation serving was no longer
.required as the Town of

wishes and desires of those
that had contributed both
money and time with respect
to the current assets of the
Association. The Association
sent out 150 letters. Of these,
133 members and former
members responded. The
vote count on the ballot was
as follows:
(a) 112 members voted to
turn the property over to the
Town, if the Town would
complete the building and
retain it and associated pro-
perty for a period of at least
20 years. This property to be
used as a Civic Center and

(c) Six members and form-
er members voted to turn the
property over to the Town to
do with it, as they desired.
A special Council meeting
was held Dec. 29 to discuss
the acceptance or rejection
of the proposed grant.
Attending the meeting were
all council members with the
exception of George Holland.
The entire discussion center-
ed around the fact that the
Association members wished
the Town to retain the proper-
ty for a period of 20 years.
The Council members felt
that' the acceptance of such a
property would seriously
hamper future decisions on a
proposed -future Municipal
Complex and they. would not
tie the hands of future Coun-
cilmen by accepting this
restriction on the property.
Other facts bearing on the
situation are: h'e Town has
two fire trucks and associ-
ated equipment needs a
building to house it from salt
air deterioration.
Also at present, the Town
conducts all business from a
small building, .donated for
Town use by a local-citizen.
The Town needs., a larger
building with adequate sani-
tary facilities in thP building.
At present time.. there are
no central plans' to locate
either ',.':,.< or -fire fighting
equipment assistance in the
town. The police-are contact-
Sed by ': i.'T- r? the Gulf County
Sheriff and the Fire Associa-

' The Town needs a central
location so that citizens may
call for r.'"-. or- fire protec-
tion locally and, expect to
reach that assistance for
their immediate protection.
The acceptance of this pro-
perty, by the Town of Mexico
Beach would have rendered
a valuable service to the
entire community. This pro-
perty, in time, could double
to serve the above mentioned
civic needs and, when no
longer required for this pur-
pose, could still serve as a
civic center, Scout hut,
Chamber of Commerce meet-
ings, church functions, etc.

Night Hunters Fined

Lonnie H. Stanley and Jim-
my Nunnery, each age 20 and
both of Wewahitchka, plead
guilty recently to a mid-Nov-
ember charge of "gun and
light hunting at night for
deer" and were assessed
-fines of F51jSi each, according
to Gulf County Court'
Stanley's hunting- and fish-
ing licenses were confiscated
for one year, and Nunnery's
hunting license was corfis-
cated for a similar'period.
Records also show that a
shotgun and rifle, and head-
light and spotlight devices,
seized as evidence at the
time of arrest, have been
processed for confiscation.
The fines and penalties were
assessed in separate court

1 Tim. 3:16 tells us that
"Great is the mystery of
Godliness: God was manifest
in the flesh, justified in the
spirit, seen of angels, preach-
ed unto the Gentiles." Think
of this, God preached and
God was manifest in the
