Gulf County tax payers will
pay more for less services in
the schools of the county
during the coming budget
year. Even after cutting ex-
penditures to the bone in a
year which will see a healthy
decrease in state participation
in financing of school opera-
tions, local participation will
be increased.
In. a tentative budget ham-
S mered out Tuesday in an all
day session of the School
Board, county tax payers will
be tapped for an additional
$320,000 to finance school op-
erations. The school budget
for the coming year will be
I $3,195,781.20 for ,p.rfdtont.
and $602,223.11 for debt ser-
vice. The new budget reflects
- a reduction of $83,075 in the
operation budget and an in-
crease of $280,000 in the debt
service budget.

Tax payers will be paying
more and receiving less as
they. are expected to pay the
lion's share of the $921,547.00
in local funds which will be
required to operate the
schools. Part of this source
will come from lunch room
charges and various other
items. The Board will have
only $51,1Q4.01 in cash to carry
over as opposed to $101,689.91
last year.
The reduction of state and
federal income is the item
which throws the budget into a
tailspin this. coming year
Only $2,172,865.19 is expected
from this source. Last year,
the county received $2,399,-
246.11 from this source, show-
ing a $122,000 reduction.
On the expenditures side,
increases of $3,000 are seen in
administration; $40,000 in in-
structional salaries, $20,000 in
other expenditures, $24,000 in

operation of plants and $7,000
in reserves.
Sizeable reductions are seen
as $21,000 in plant mainten-
ance, $25,000.in pupil transpor-
tation, $7,000 in fixed charges
and, $86,000 in outgoing trans-
Total expected appropria-
tions in these various funds

may be seen in the Board's
proposed budget published on
page six of this issue.
In the debt service budget
tax payers will be tapped for
nine-tenths of a mill to provide
$89,161.00 of this fund, while
the state and incoming trans-
fers account for the remainder

of the $602,223.11 total. This
portion of the budget totalled
$320,063.71 last. year.

The bulk of the increase in
this budget is due to a healthy

outlay funds from the state

Santa Comes Early and

Brings $387

Congressman Bob Sikes announced
Friday the award of' rir.,,i0,i in,,-!..p
ment Block Grants to three West Florida
cities totalling $. .: *,., ,hi.
Sikes said the cities receiving the. 100
per cent funding grants for projects, and
their amounts, are Wewahitchka, $110,000;
Wausau, $74,000; and Port St. Joe,
Award of the grants is made under the
provisions of the Community It*-..-',, rei.i-.f
Act of 1974 and through the U. S. Depart-
ment of Housing and Urban Development
Port St. Joe's money will be used for'
development of a neighborhood facility,
park recreation and street improvement.
Wewahitchka's grant will be used for
repairing or paving 17 city streets.
-Port St. Joe's allocation is broken
down into $50,000 for r-ino ai're, an exist-'
ing school .buli',ng into a neighborhood
center; $30,000 for a playground and athle-
tic area complex; and, S I ,., 'm for paving
five streets in the Millview Addition in
North Port St. Joe.
All.of the activity wouldd take plact- in
the northern portion of the community,
an area described by Port St. Joe Mayor
Frank Pate, Jr. in rhei appli<.IiUI, r-.4qu0i1,
as where "the people are economically
depressed, a majority of the minority


housing is located and where a majority of
the unemployed persons of the city live. '
Pate said the city has been trying to
iipr..,- i..ndiinN-. in the area by upgrad-
ing lrul'. f.i,.iI)-,,.. developing recrea-
tional outlets and developing an improved
transportation network, but that the com- .
bination of needs,- .oupluil ith the normal
everyday operations of the city and recent
reduction of available money, has created
.a financial burden.
This burden, Mayor Pate said, would
not allow Port St. Joe to develop the need-
ed projects as rapidly as it would like.
,:.ier-.-.ir,.i., Sikes said the HUD
funds, obtained with the'assistance of the
Northwest Florida Planning and Advisory
<'..iuruml, will now allow these three comrn-"
munities to begin work on these long-cher-
ished projects that the cities were pre-
viously unable to initiate.
Wewahitchka Mayor Alvin McGlon, in
his application statement, noted that
widespread expansion of the city sewage
collection system had resulted in damage
to many of the city's streets.
Mayor Mcrilun noted the Iunds would
be used to repaf r Ot-sr pave a number of present dirt roads in low
income sectors of the community. He said
the money would be used to resurface 4.2
miles of city streets,

No Holiday Accidents In Gulf

Port St. Joe's Jaycees put up this
gruesome exhibit of what carelessness
on the highways can do in support of
their annual "Arrive Alive" program
over the Labor Day holidays.
The exhibit, erected on Highway 98
near the Florida First National Bank,
caught the attention of passing motor-
ists, giving them pause to reflect their
driving habits and causing some to stop
for a refreshing rest and a cup of coffee
before continuing on their journey.
According to Jim Cooley, who was
chairman of the annual project, about

50 to 60 out of town visitors stopped at
the display during the holiday hours.
The Jaycees offered their word of
caution and free refreshments from
8:00 a.m.to midnight Saturday, Sunday
and Monday.
In addition to the safety message,
the' Jaycees served as the calling
number to receive pledges for the Jerry
Lewis MD Telethon. "We didn't do as
good this year as we did last year",
Cooley reported. The Jaycees received
only $67.00 in pledges for the cause
which say the nation pledge $18 million

during the televised program:
Cooley said 25 local Jaycees were
involved in the week end project.
Gulf County Sheriff Raymond Law-
rence and Port St. Joe Police Chief H.
W. Griffin reported there were no
accidents in the city of county during
the long week end holiday which saw
thousands of visitors invade the county
for their last fling at the beaches.
Maybe such projects as this by Jaycees
throughout the state had something to
do with that.

to recognize that things cost
more but several expressed a
wish to see a sales tax in the
county rather than get the
extra money needed through
ad valorem taxes. There were
no emphatic protests against a
tax increase.
The Board used their axe to
erase a planned $1,400 contri-
bution to the Big Bend Health
Planning Council; chopped
$630.00 from the 'Panhandle
Alcoholic Council contribu-
tion; reduced the ambulance
service funds by $7,896 and
replaced several planned tax
financed purchases of equip-
ment with Revenue Sharing
All equipment purchases
planned for the Road and
Bridge Fund and the General
Revenue Fund will be financ-
ed with Revenue Sharing
funds. In addition to the
equipment purchases, $33,000
in the sharing funds were put
into the Fine and Forfeiture
(courts and Sheriff budget) to
replace tax money. In the tax
economy move, the County
will use up about $100,000 of its
Revenue Sharing fund back-
log, or about half its accumu-
lated funds. These funds were:
originally earmarked for con-
struction of a new library-
building and an ambulance:
service headquarters.
As a result of their Tuesday:
night meeting, the County will
adopt village which will col-
lect the same number of tax
dollars as were collected last
year. This will serve as a
slight tax reduction for those
who have the same property
valuation as last year and a
slight increase for those who
have seen their property val-
ues increase. Property Ap-
praiser Samuel A. Patrick has
released figures which says
property values have increas-
ed by some $10 million over
last year.
Any change which will in-
crease the tax rate from this
point on will require another
public hearing. Reductions
can be made without any
further public notice.

that, contrary to the expressed de-

working for some time to turn the

p the Canal Recrutin

retary of State for Latin American
Affairs, Spruille Braden, testified 20
years ago that Akletr Hiss, who was
later convicted for perjury, had
worked to scuttle U.S. control of the
Canal. Hiss, h,:, was identified by
many. witnesses as a secret member
of the communist -party, was direc-
tor of the State Department's Office
of Special Political Affairs. In that
capacity, Hiss sent reports from the
State Department to the United
Nations referring to the Canal Zone
as "an occupied 'territory." This
implied that "tjhe. people" of the
Zone are entitled to self-govern-
ment. The fact is, of course, that;
according to the terms of the 1903
treaty with Panama, the, land was
bought, paid for, and maintained by
the United States for the purpose of
operating the Canal. It is not a
"territory" in any sense of the word.
It is obvious,- however, why the
Communists would like people to
think so.
The Panama Canal is vital to
United States securIty and economy.
To turn the control of the Canal over
to any country, much less the
unstable government of Panama,
would be an act of hari-kari.
