Pridgeon Reports Collection

Of $1,426,048.45 In Taxes

Gulf County Tax Collector Harland
Pridgeon asked for release from the respon-
sibilities of the 1974 tax roll this week,
reporting he had collected all that was
I.collectable on the tax roll for the now waning
ffscil year.

Pridgeon was charged at the beginning of
the fiscal year with collecting $1,466,952.00 in
taxes. When the valuations were finally
settled and the bills sent out, the Tax
Collector billed tax payers for $1,481,167.10,
an increase of $14,000 over the charged
amount. Pridgeon's report showed he ac-
tually collected $1,426,048.45. The difference
was reflected in $49,300.61 in discounts earned

by tax payers for paying early; $5,639.01
stricken from the tax list on property which
was improperly assessed and $179.03 which
has not been collected as yet due to a dispute
in the amount owed.
Pridgeon collects taxes for all taxing
bodies in the county. He distributed the
money collected as follows: School Board,
$686,100.39; General Fund, County, $282,-
796.33; Fine & Forfeiture Fund, $98,522.59;
Certificates of Indebtedness, I&S Fund,
$64,769.49; Gulf County Health Unit, $21,-
893.86; St. Joseph Fire Control District,
$4,740.93; Tupelo Fire Control District,
$833.41; City of Port St. Joe, $248,969.28 and
City of Wewahitchka, $17,422.17.

280 feet of 40-inch steel drain
pipe to place in Forest Park to
allow the canal there to drain
off water more quickly.' The
pipe will replace a piece of
collapsed pipe in the park and
provide additional drainage in
the 10th Street area.
In another move, the Com-
mission decided to meet with
their engineers, Smith and
Gillespie of Jacksonville next
Thursday afternoon to initiate
a survey of the city's drainage
needs from a professional
standpoint. The Commission
will ask for the opinion of the
engineers in the matter.
The two biggest problem
areas in the City are the drain
canal in Forest Park and the
area east of Garrison Avenue.
Charlie Adams, owner of
Florida Magnolia Homes here
in Port St. Joe, made a request
of the Commission that the

floor of home construction.
Adams said the pipe, in a
schedule 40 weight, is allowed

institutions and would save
home owners money in con-,
Builder Wade Barrier and
plumber E. W. Beaman were
present and argued against a
do'.; anc.': from the City's re-
quirement that cast iron pipe
be used in under floor con-
struction. Both Beaman and
Barrier felt the plastic pipe
would be too susceptible to
damage from clean-out tools
to be practical.
Adanis argued that the man-,
ufacturers would replace any
pipe damaged in this manner.
The Commission decided to
sit pat on its requirement for
cast iron pipe in sewage
installation but agreed to ex-
amine its building code with
the possibility of allowing
plastic pipe applications in
other areas.
The building code was
drawn up before plastic pipe
began to appear on the market
in any great volume and does
not allow its use in any

think he erred in his plans. In the
first place he would stand to. get
most of the vote he was trying to
attract, anyway. His actions only
served to alienate more votes than
he gained, in our viewpoint.
Whatever his reasoning, we can
hardly see how the Governor of the
State could upset a decision by two
sets of jurors, who gave their
decision based on the State's accept-
ed method of deciding who is guilty
and who is innocent. It seems to us
he Governor took an-oath when he
was sworn in to uphold the Constitu-
ion of the Florida which sets out
how we decide who is innocent and
who is guilty.
The Governor had no more at his
disposal, as we see it, in the way of
evidence than did the courts which
tried and convicted the now famous.
Our people fought a war 199
years ago to erase the practice of

Claude L. Greene, Jr., State
Director of Farmers Home
Administration in Florida, an-
nounced today that assistance
advanced to Florida farmers,
rural residents and rural com-
munities for the period July 1,
1974, to June 30, 1975 exceeded
The Rural Housing program
has contributed to the deve-
lopment of rural areas of the
SState in the amount of $76,808,-
S,.) 0o) These funds were used
'.to build or repair 3,538 rural
'residences, 11 rural rental
fusing facilities and one
farm labor housing facility.
.. Individual rural housing
loans are available to low-to-
Moderate income families at
ntine per cent interest, with a
maximum repayment term of
..-'ears. The Rural Housing
program will continue to

make a substantial contribu-
tion in the area of housing.
A total of 759 Florida far-,
mers have received loans in
the amount of $12,583,890.
These loans were made for
purchasing farms, enlarging
or improving farms, and. for
operating expenses including
the purchase of livestock and
equipment. Farm Ownership
loans are made to family far-
mers, Mr. Greene said, and
are made with funds advanced
by private lenders and insured
by the Farmers Home Admin-
istration. The interest rate
charge for these loans is five
per cent per year on the un-
paid principal with a maxi-
mum of 40 years. Mr. Greene
stated that these loans may
also be used to drill wells and
improve water .supply sys-
tems for home use, livestock
and irrigation, to refinance
debts, develop and improve

farm land, establish and
maintain farm forests and
provide drainage systems.
Loans may also be made to
provide facilities for fish pro-
duction under controlled con-
ditions and to finance non-
farm enterprises and recrea-
tional enterprises which will
help the farmer supplement
his income.
Operating type loans may
be made to purchase live-
stock, farm equipment, and
make minor improvements to
buildings and land, develop
water supply systems for farm
and home use. He said that
these loan funds may be used
to provide family living ex-
penses as well as annual farm
operating expenses and to fi-
nance non-farm and recrea-
tional enterprises which will
supplement the farmer's-in-
come. The operating type
loans are scheduled for repay-

ment in from one to seven
years at a current interest
rate of 8% per cent.
.Twenty-seven loans and 17
grants totaling $26,881,000
were approved during the 1975
fiscal year for community
water and-or sewer facilities.
Five loans for community fac-
ilities totaling $1,219,000 were
made during the 1975 fiscal
year. Facilities financed in-
cluded a city hall, a hospital,
fire station, fire equipment
and a recreation complex.
Mr. Greene states that the
recently approved projects
are now in the final stages of
planning and that most of the
projects will be under con-
struction this calendar year or
in the spring of 1976.
Loans for community water
and sewer systems and other
community facilities may be

financed for up to 40 years.
The current interest rate is

There is a difference in grandsons. I have
two who are six and seven and they cari come
through the kitchen once and the candy jar full of
peppermints kept there for the grandsons is
empty in a flash. Then. I have two more
grandsons who are two years old and they are
different still: even different from the:four year
old and 18 month old ones *
fdii.-:da) night, after we got the paper out
I was at home, i't.r'rVd back in my re'clningi chair
k .it h my shoes kicked off in the floor reading the
paper when one of the I %% \'.ir-olds came by.
His tf.-v ,n p,ir timi' is the i.mik, jar. Ile'ii ,;;
an occasional piece of p,-pptriunit, but he
usually asks for a <'o..kie'. eats. two thirds of it
and a'. I- the .'h.-r third to the dog. Then he sets
up a howl that the dog 'i4t, his cookie which
ir -ul:. in an immediate trip to the cookie jar for
a r<-pl 4'ti;.evn.t This can happen, as many as
four or five times a. visit until he gts,. all the

i,-i.-i-d1. he wants to pl.i(" the piano. The
word pl,. -isn't mine, it' his.
Then, later in the t-niing. the other
two-year-old came by and had to, have a piece of
p.-pprtrm int His kick is getting the ball point pen
out of my shirt. pck.t and writing while he
parades around the house in my shoes. All of this
he did Wednesday night.'
Thursday nmrniiin, I picked my pen up off
the n,,,r where it was stuck from the writing of
the previous ni hIt. I pried it up off the floor,
washed the sticky ,-.iadv off it and put it in my
pocket. Then, when I put on my shoes, lithey were
so i'-k.' I had to wash them iff. too..
l'The qu-'n I.on is not why .granlitc'ildretn are so
different. The i -i i6iin is how can a litl- round
piece of pt-ppi-rimiti about thrct tltu.irl-re. of an
inch in diameter cover a chair arm, a ball point
pen, a pair of shoes, a II %i-aIr ild IP, and still
have nIuu:h lh-l to go inside thfe s.iu- buy

Speaking of grandsons, all young boys will
be i:l .i' of information which was printed in the
papers last week. A well known di-,ri-minlogist
has issued a paper ,.hich says p,'iphl try to stay

I was impressed Friday night at the ball
game. We can see where the fans will witness
some good football and some good entertainment
during this football season.
While I was impressed with the versatility of
the football team, I was most impressed with the
band which our new director, Raymond Smith,
has put together.
The band is still small. He has started with
very few members back from last year and
added some new talent. Best of all, they play
where you can hear them and they play well. The
show was a fine show with some good music. The
Sharkettes added some fine pageantry to the
musical presentation and seemed to know what
they were supposed to do. For the first time in
several years, the band and the Sharkettes went
through their routines with hardly a bobble.
The Sharkettes are under the direction of
Miss Ann Aldridge.
I personally thought it was the best show a
Port St. Joe band and Sharkette group has put on
in five or six years. When you consider the
present band has probably the fewest veterans
back in its ranks of any year in the recent past,
one has to give enormous credit to the band
students and their instructors for some hard
I liked it, band! Keep it up!

The school teachers tell me they are finally
able to hold classes again at Port St. Joe High
School after about four years of serving as a
referee over what amounted to an armed camp.

It seems the high school has been sort of like the
Sinai Desert for the past couple of years, with the
"Jews" on one side and the "Arabs" on the
other, each just waiting for the other to start
something. It's not hard to understand that not
much learning can go on in a situation suqh .a

The report we get is that this year, things
have finally cooled down to the point where
serious work can be done.

With the attitude of the teachers this year in
agreeing to their work contract and the '
improving attitude of the students, we should all
be thankful.

The. story is told of the
great conductor Sir Mic-
hael Costa. Once he was
rehearsing, a great orches-
tra of hundreds of music-

filling the auditorium with
-thunderous music. 'The
drums,. the cymbals, the
cornets, the string instru-

make splendid harmony.
"Stop!" he shouted. All
fell silent to see what Sir
Michael wanted. "Where is
the piccolo?" he asked, In
that immense and powerful
orchestra, one man had
been silent.
Sir Michael had missed
that tiny note and the re-
hearsal was if,4'"',t"' '
This incident has a great
lesson for all of us. In the
mighty chorus of life, we
too, are missed if we
become silent. Every man
has a place-has a part,
whatever that part may be.

fi u tur on the population of Gulf County,
the Port'St. Joe ambulance is charged
with providing Emergency Services to
over 70 per cent of the entire population of

is called upon also to transport patients
from the Municipal Hospital in Port St.

per month.

While the St. Joe ambulance is
actually on emergency runs, (over 100
hours per month) 70 percent of our

... Peas & Beans
Dry beans and their close cousins, dry
peas and lentils, are the answer to penny

among the least expensive sources of
protein, iron and B-Vitamins. To get the
most value from your bean dishes, include

Most beans and peas require soaking
before cooking. For a good shortcut, start
by boiling them for 2 minutes then remove
from heat, soak an hour and they're ready
to cook. Read package directions because
some varieties are presoaked. If you want
really great flavor, use chicken or beef
broth instead of water:
Cooking time varies with type. Allow
about 2 hours for black and split green or
yellow peas. Lima beans need 45 minutes

For over. 5,000. years, RX has sym-
bolized man's weapons against
disease. The ancient Egyptians
used the magic eye of Horus,
God of Day, as a charm to guard
them against ills and suffering.
Centuries later, the eye reap-
peared in a form similar to our
"4" and evolved gradually into
its present RX. But your doctor
doesn't depend on Horus or.
Jupiter.. he relies on your Rexall
Pharmacist and the improved
drug products your pharmacist
stocks, You, too, can rely on

because the laminated wood is

Bugs, Worms

Hard to Control

By Robert J. Black
Extension Horticulture Writer
University of Florida
Sod webworms and fall
armyworms, two caterpillars
that are eating lawn grasses
are easy to kill but difficult to
control. A heavy infestation
can be wiped out with a num-,
ber of insecticides, but
another infestation may cause
damage in three weeks after
* the initial infestation is clean-
ed out. Eggs laid by brown
moths or millers, hatch out
and result in the new batch of
caterpillars. These are not
usually affected by insecti-
cides previously applied to
control the first infestation.
By the time the eggs hatch
out, the previous treatment
has usually worn off.
These grass feeding cater-
pillars do not confine their
injury to just one type of lawn
grass. They are damaging to
all of the lawn grasses com-
monly grown in Florida.
When young, the tiny cater-
pillars are not able to bite
pieces of the grass but can,
only scrape away cells from
one surface of the grass blade.
This causes the grass blade to
appear almost transparent.
As the sod webworm or army-
worm caterpillar grows, they
chew out notches along the
sides of the blades. The sod
webworm feed only at night
while thearmyworm does not
hide during the day and may
be found feeding at any time.
When large populations of
either of these two caterpillars
feed on lawns the entire stand
of grass looks like it has been
mowed extremely close. Dur-
ing. hot, dry ,. .tlwr. the

entire lawn may be severely
damaged or killed.
Caterpillar damage to lawns
generally shows up first along
hedges and- flower beds. Sod
webworm damage may occur
in spots or patches over the
entire lawn. These patches
range in size from two to three
feet across and enlarge as the
caterpillar grow and increase
in number. Armyworm
damage is not in as definite
patches as that of sod web-
' The peak of caterpillar in-
festation comes now, during
.late summer and early fall.
Watch out for them and apply
an insecticide to rid your lawn
of these pests. Several insecti-
cides are known to kill lawn-
eating caterpillars, among
these are sevin and diazinon.
Follow. the manufacturer's
directions for application of
the material you select.
The best kill of sod web-
worms is received when in-
secticides are applied when
the worms are small, so it is
important to find them as soon
as possible. Check any spot in
the lawn that looks bare or
brown to see if sod webworms
or armyworms are eating the
Common grass eating cater-
pillars feed on the grass
blades and not.on roots and
