Board Agrees to
Lease City Site
The Gulf County School Board
offered the old Washington High
School site to the City of Port
St. Joe Tuesday night, on a lease
basis, to develop: into a recrea-
tion site for the City.
Board Chairman Gene Raffield
delivered a letter to the Board
at its regular meeting offering
the site for the lease price of'
$1.00 per year, renewable each
year. The stipulation was made
that the School Board or the
City could cancel the lease on,
60 days written notice.
The Commission questioned
Raffield of their future plans
for the school" being reluctant
to accept the' year-to-year lease
and spend. money developing the
site, only to have the- School
Board call for it back in a'short
-period of time for use -as school
Raffield replied, "We've-stu-
died that possibility for expand-
ing our vocational program .but
the State Department of Educa-
tion has opposed the operation
of any school function away from
our present 40-acre site. The
only reason we might want it
back in the future is should we
receive a fair marketable price
offer for the property and build-

site for some time to develop

:PAE TWO THE STARl Port ?. Joe, Flordt THURSDAY, JANUARY 4, 1973
.We don't know about you, but the State Public Set-
'p* vice Co.mmiss'oin hao eroded our faith in its unbiased at-
' titude in setting utility rates with itshandling of three
rate adjustment cases last week.
In alf there instances, the PSC was 'requested to grant
increases in r-s:, due prti'ally to the new state corpora-
ion tak-, rai.azi' t.he '- -,:t cf doing buin 'as. well as,
other rising r.-ta to the utilities.
Two fimirr, FlriiJa Pcw-,r aw Light arid Fkrdida Pow-
er, were .gA..i'...l sa.ll in,"'r es .ia rates of about, one'
fifth thurir reque.t. ,
S:.'The third pwr.. .ompan y--Gulf P/owcr- -w':5 'rlered
to cut its ra--s by nearly $9W09,60) after gramtimg_ the- util-
ity an min e:,: % arlier in thb: year.' The PSC said. it found
Gulf Prjwer hA.d inc.l -A t.-h, corporate income tax in its ,
list 'A inrFave' expon*.j-;e: when it applied for the rate hike.
W"' re we La ve crmhe to hA',- a modietum f r?~p.ici.n
as to the' P11 funm.1. is in this instance. If ti PSC
a allows a 'crtain .prr.ntage ,f profit 'ove. and above x-
penses for er-r t.inrg jrfitf am the regulating l-.Jy stuck
I by.this firtmulb. in grartinog Gulf Power's raise earlier,
h ow cali they now or dld-r a cut which would logically bring
:" the firm be-ow the aJlowaibl-; marain-of profit? If they
arn still wit1in the margin of profit- after being ordered
to cut back on its charges, why did the PSC grant the in-
crease in the first place?
We cringe jqstas much as .n.ry:. ..: ,:-n we go to
writing our check each month for the power bill. While
the e.:..:r- service ,:.:-..th- we'd choose not to 'do
S'vI.': --;.t it is one of those services we never.see until bill-
ing time i';r'> -1 around. But even as r.'.:.-i as it hu-t
to -toe the T:.:Cr _:':* :r.y: :h,,1 we also kT,.w that a
Sr to make.a .-r f.. to :. in business. Just
because the: Governor .'.: -3 he wants to see corpor-.
ate tax paid oGut of ....:.. is no eac-n .: 't t.he pro'f!
iktur: of our needed, ut iUei in jpar.'. .
'It is our f.eh!L1 tha.t. the reason for the PSC 1irg in
exoisance is st% .-t;"a the utilities make a fair profit and:
at the same tr', offer services to their customers at a
r~nI -l .: rate, We can't see -h- re the PSC has done-
' .E'/.,,..'7 any good when t.':- *.- go to penalizing either the
utility or the customer and disturb the delicate balance,
which ,.;.:- 'us, to enjoy dependable services from our
elpetric and telephone servants, while at -the same time,
keeping.'these servants alive and healthy with a reasonable
profit so Lthey can continue to be dependable.
. What we're saying is: "Don't-go messing around with
our utilities just to. keep somebody's political promise in
regards to corporate taxes".

_ that the use of teaching ma-

F tal stage. If their early promise
materializes, the possibilities are

maties, the very area in which
Ti4 teaching machines seem to do

Machines may provide part of.
2456 the answer to that problem. The
population explosion and the in-
creasing demands for education
6rWO in remote parts of the world sug-
gest another way in which ma-
for suc chines may be put to use. Cer-
tainly, when enough teachers
are not available to cover the
P t needs, then aids to self-instruc-
tion become very important. In
rural sections of America alone,
machines may someday prove to
be a boon to '. '.':.'. along with
idu0a ti ,a l television. Their cost
is certainly not prohibitive.
Smaller types can be bought for
$20.00, and mass production may
reduce even. that price.
* At present, however, the dem-
onstrated value of auto-instruc-
tional 'i.'.< is that they free
the teacher fronm a great part
of the chore of transmitting
rote material to students. Repeti-
tious drill can be handled main-
ly by the machine, thus giving
teachers the time to concentrate

A Thought to
From the land of Ambrym we
hear of a beautiful word, the na-
tive word for love. Literally
translated it means: "The heart
keeps calling, calling for me."
This is very likely the best of
all t.',:..'...r: of the word
Think of young' lovers their
hearts are calling out to each
other,, that's why we say they're
in love. A child has the same
call going out for a parent, and
a parent's heart calls to a child.
Friendships based on love are
moulded through the'staying .in
touch by way of the heart.
If the hearts of mankind kept
calling, rallying for one another,
what a different world it would
be. There would be no room for
envy, ,hate and prejudices.
Wars wohld be, eliminated if
all people practiced the natives
of Ambrym's description of love.
