fense Director, Richard Lancas-
One funnel was sighted near
the White City tower of the Flor-
ida Forestry Service, but did no
damage to homes or structures.
The second tornado was in the
form of a water 'spout which
roared up out of the Gulf at
Mexico Beach and took the roof
and back porch off a house
owned Iby Mexico Beach Mayor
Williani Lyles.. The house was
unoccupied at ,the time of the
The tornado also took a porch
roof off Lyles' Rainbow Motel
next door to the damaged house.
The debris was scattered over
U. S. Highway 98 and traffic
was stopped for a while until the

The Port St. Joe City Commis-
s i o n unanimously appointed
George Wimberly, Jr., Tuesday
night to fulfill the unexpired
term of Robert B. Fox on the
Commission. Fox resigned last
month to move to Miami and
Wimberly will serve until May
of this year, when the seat comes
up for re-election in the Munici-
Mayor Frank Pate recommend-
ed that Wimberly be appointed
since he has been working with
the planning of the new Waste-
water Treatment Plant, currently
being worked on by the Com-
mission. Pate said, "This is a ma-
jor and complex undertaking
and since Wimberly is familiar
with all facets of the project, he
would be the proper man to sit
on the Board". The remainder of
the Board concurred with Pate.
Wimberly was sworn in im-
mediately by Clerk Brock and
placed in charge of the water
and sewer department.
John Robert Smith and Wal-
ter C. Dodson, representing the
Kiwanis Club informed the
Board their club was working on
a project to beautify the four-
lane extension of Fifth Street.
Smith said the club had se-
cured a promise from the De-
partment of Transportation for
landscaping the median and had
received a commitment from
the Department of Forestry to
provide the plants and shrubs.
The spokesmen asked the City
to place watering facilities in
the section between Woodward
and Garrison Avenues and set
up a plan of running water to
an additional block each year,
until the entire area is served.
The Board agreed to the re-
quest and instructed water Sup-
erintendent G. L. Scott to install
watering equipment on the first
block in the area.
Upon assurances by the City's
engineers that everything was
in order, the Commission accept-
ed the bid of Peabody-Peterson
Construction Company of Orlan-
do to construct the new industry-

Plant here in Port St. Joe. Pea-

and sign an 'agreement with the
builders. The Board will also
finalize work to sell revenue cer-

Seven years ago, the Southern
Association of Colleges and

status from Port St. Joe High
Schools, blaming inadequate fa-

Oak Grove Should Accept System
People in Oak Grove have waited for nearly four years
to get a central water and sewage collection service in
that area. Now that it is only a matter of days before
their application for a government loan to build these
systems will be granted or turned down, many of the peo-
ple seem reluctant to ,sign up as customers because they
feel the cost for the service will be too much. They feel
their rates should be the same as in the City of Port St. Joe
since they will be using the same facilities.
When one gets down to examining the entire picture,
Oak Grove will be getting their services as economically
as City of Port St. Joe customers.
'One must keep in mind also that the Farmers Home
Administration, the lending agency, has told the people
of Oak Grove that tying into the City systems is the cheap-
est and best source of water and sewage disposal service
--even at the price Oak Grove customers must pay.
Water and sewage treatment charges for the com-
munity of Oak Grove will run about 50% more than the
same service in the City of Port St. Joe. The rates col-
lected will pay for the water, the sewer collection and
treatment service, and will pay for the distribution and
collection systems which must be installed to service the
people. The rate they are getting is a bargain. It would
be more if a well was put, down, a treatment plant built
- and a sewage disposal plant constructed.
We'll take an example. Highland View's water char-
ges are virtually the same as proposed water charges
alone will be for Oak Grove. One must subtract the sew-
age charges for this comparison. Highland View receiv-
ed a gift of half the money needed to install their water
system. Oak Grove can receive no grant. So, even with
a gift of half their construction costs, Highland View's
water charges are as much as those planned for Oak
Oak Grove citizens feel they should have the same
rates as the City customers. They could, too, if they
would vote to come into the City Limits. Then, like City
customers, they could pay for part of the cost of provid-
ing water and sewer services by way of utility taxes, ad
valorem taxes, etc. The sizeable outlay of money for
facilities to provide water and sewer services are paid for
with revenue other than water and sewer rates. So, you
see, Oak Grove is, for all practical purposes, being offered
the same rates as customers in the City of Port St. Joe.
The State already frowns on the wells and septic tanks
in Oak Grove and with the way things are, moving in the
areas of sanitation throughout the state, it's probably
only a matter of time before those residents in Oak
Grove will be forced to tie into a central sewage treat-
ment system. They have the chance now, at a fair price,
and they will get some of the best water in the state in
in the bargain. All they have to do is sign up as custo-
mers at the fair rate being offered.
The Farmers Home Administration is requiring 170
water and sewer customers to grant a loan to install the
system. In our estimation, the people of this area should
jump at this golden opportunity. It costs, sure; but what
doesn't cost that's worth having!
Proud of the Sharks
Maybe we're being a little premature, but we're proud
of the accomplishments made by our high school athletic
teams this year. Already, we have the Class AA foot-
ball championship for the State of Florida tucked neatly
under our belt and now the Sharks are casting a lustful
eye on the state Class AA basketball championship.
Some shake their head in wonder at the accomplish-
ments of the basketball team, beating three of the best
teams in Northwest Florida to get to the State finals to
be held in Jacksonville this week end. This feat is even
more unbelievable when you pause to reflect on the fact
that the Sharks are one game shy of having a'500 season
during their regular schedule.
We remarked as much to Principal Zack Wuthrich
in Bonifay Saturday night during the closing minutes of

"That's true", said Wuthrich, "but you must consi-

be created on the basis of need;
not on some arbitrary population
limitation. The new proposal will
permit judges to be freely and
flexibly assigned to help meet
emergency needs as they arise.
The new proposal does away
with arbitrary jurisdictional lim-
itations which prevent sound
utilization of judicial talent.
In the creation of this new
court structure we hope to cre-
ate a sound, flexible system to
meet the demands placed on our
judicial system and which should
be able to efficiently absorb the
municipal court caseload.

have also failed as a legislature

225 REID AVENUE
by WESLEY R. RAMSEY
Some joker who signs by the alias of "R. D. Blaske"
thought he or she had us fooled last week by writing a
letter signed (as letters must be before we will publish
them) and giving us the devil about an editorial in The
Star of two weeks ago.
Before the letter was printed, we had already found
out there was no such person as R. D. Blaske. At least
there is no such name in the phone book, some of the union
officers do not know him (because we asked) and St. Joe
Paper Company has no such name on its payroll.
But we printed the letter anyway. We printed it
mainly for its content and the fact that the fictional R.
D. Blaske has his convictions, but apparently not strong
enough to be man enough to sign his correct name. Any-
thing we say in this newspaper on this page comes from
us and has our name on it (any piece authored by some-
one else has their name attached).
Another reason for printing the letter was to point
out "R. D. Blaske's" mistaken interpretation of our edi-
torial. He accused us of being anti-union. The editorial
hit just as hard at the company as at the union. We stat-
ed on several occasions that both company and union are
dragging their feet on settlement of the strike at St. Joe
Paper Company. The entire editorial declared this think-
ing of ours, and we still stand by it and make no apologies
to "R. D. Blaske" or anyone else.
The only thing we can figure is that "R. D. Blaske"
just wanted to write and bless us out or he isn't interested
in the strike being settled. We go on record as being def-
initely interested in the strike being settled, and the soon-
er the better.
The big bash on Leap Year by those Miami rich bache-
lors turned into a bust (or should we say disappointment).
There were those rich bachelors-all nearing 40-sur-
rounded by a bevy of buxom beauties but they couldn't
get to swinging because they were hungry. The news-
paper reports were that the bachelors couldn't wax ro-
mantic because their stomachs were growling from hun-
ger. When'their food showed up, the girls were forgotten
and the bachelors began to gorge themselves with food.
Which just goes to add emphasis on the old saw
that "the way to a man's heart is through his stomach".
After seven years of being without accreditation and
getting ready to apply for re-instatement, Port St. Joe
High School is being examined this week by a team from
the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to see
whether or not we meet their standards. It was quite a
shock when accreditation was removed back in 1965, but
it would seem that the school should have no problem
now of being accredited.
I can hardly wait to see if Senators Humphrey, Jack-
son and Muskie are as interested in Florida after Tuesday
as they have appeared to be for the past two months.

Wind, Speed Can
Cause Control Loss
TALLAHASSEE Wind gusts
and fast driving can cause tricky
steering and loss of control for
motorists the Florida Highway Pat-
rol cautioned today.
Colonel Eldrige Beach, director
of the Patrol said, "Gusty winds
which can be expected this time
of year are definite traffic hazards.
Strong gusts of cross winds on the
open highway striking a vehicle
traveling at high speeds can force
*it off of the roadway or across the
center line, especially small light-
weight automobiles, motorcycles
and mobile home trailers."
Drivers should be alert for lo-
cations along the highway which
are possible danger spots where
they might expect the effects of
cross winds. Likely spots are brid-
ges and heavily wooded areas
which often block cross winds and
add to the gusty effect of strong
winds. Sudden gusts can also be ex-
pected when passing or being pass-
ed by large trucks or buses.
"Watch for potential trouble
spots and should your vehicle be
forced off of the roadway onto the
shoulder ,keep a firm grip on the
steering wheel, apply the brakes
gradually and continue with two
wheels on the shoulder' until your
speed is reduced. Never jerk the
wheel when steering back onto the
highway," concluded Beach.

FPC Construction Delay Could Cause Reliability Problem
Question: Will Florida Power, have enough electricity
for all its customers?
Answer: Yes. We have the generating capability
necessary to meet the electrical needs of
customers in our 32-county service area.
However, any extended delays In comple-
tion of the new generating facilities we
now have under construction at our An-
clote and Crystal River plant sites could
cause a serious problem in the years just
Question: Does Florida Power charge for trouble
Answer: The company does not charge when the
source of the trouble is located In equip-
ment owned by the company. When the
trouble Is In equipment owned by the cus-
tomer, however, there Is a service charge.
Question: Should I leave my electric heating turned
on if I am going to be away from home?
Answer: Leave the heat on, but turned down 5 to
10 below the normal setting. You'll re-
duce heating costs and enjoy quick com-
fort when you return. You'll also be assured
of freeze protection.
Question: Are Florida Power home service centers
open to public groups for use as monthly
Answer: Our home service centers are available for
special meetings of social clubs, commu-
nity organizations .and other such groups.
Because of the number of requests we re-.
ceive, however, we cannot reserve these
rooms on a regular monthly basis. To make
a reservation, call your Florida Power office.
Question: Are electric, self-cleaning ovens safe?
Answer: Yes. A safety lock keeps the oven door from
being opened while the high heat is being
used during the cleaning cycle. The door
remains locked until the oven cools to nor-

Chamber Opposes Sale of Point Land to State
The Port St. Joe-Gulf County
Chamber of Commerce Board of
Directors went on record Mon-
day night as opposing the State
of Florida purchasing a 1300
acre tract of land up for sale on
T. S. Coldewey and George G.
Tapper will be featured speak-
ers for the Willis V. Rowan Post
116, American Legion, when they
meet Wednesday, March 15, to
observe the 53rd anniversary of
All past and present members
of the Legion are invited to at-
tend a banquet at 7:30 which is
being planned by D. C. Register,
Emmett Daniell and Arnold Dan-
The Legion was first organiz-
ed in Paris, France on March 15,
St Joseph's Peninsula.
Jesse V. Stone, a member of
the Governor's Advisory Council,
Parks and Recreation, told the
Board his group is meeting the
"last of this month, and he would
like an expression of opinion of
the possible sale.
Chamber President Bernard
Pridgeon, Jr., told the Board he
had contacted Representative
William J. Rish concerning the
possible use the state had for
the tract of land. Pridgeon said
Rish had told him the State had
no plans for development, but
were interested in purchasing
the land in case it was- needed at
some future date to expand St.
Joseph's State Park on the Pen-
Stone reminded the Board the
State now owned 2500 acres in
the park and less than a fourth
of the land is in use and only 50
acres developed. He offered the
opinion that it would be a long
time before the entire park ac-
reage was developed.
The Board 'went on record as
opposing the State purchase of
the land, preferring to let it re-
main open for private purchase
and development. A letter to this
effect will be sent to Gulf's leg-
islative delegation, Representa-
tives William Rish and Joe Chap-
man and Senator W. E. Bishop.
and to Stone as a member of the
Parks Advisory Council.
In other business the Chamber
Directors discussed putting forth,
a concerted effort to gain more
active support and membership
from the Beaches and Wewa-
hitchka areas and to increase ac-
tive participation by local mem-

the biggest bulge of either team.
The Sharks had a one point

period, but Graceville had pick-
ed up a six point cushion by half
It was half-way through the
third period before the Sharks
were in front again. Kendrick
Bryant, then Sam Barnes stole
the ball and fed to Quinn who _
made a quick four points. Quinn
then plucked off a loose ball and
fed to Speights who gave the
Sharks a one point lead and ad-
ded another point with a free
throw when he was fouled while
, shooting. The Sharks went on to
add three more points to their
margin in the last period to de-
feat a stubborn Graceville five.
Sandy Quinn led the Shark
scoring with 20 points with Gary
Speights adding 14, Kendrick

backboards for the Sharks with
Tim Grandberry on the sidelines
