Eldridge Money Named Chairman

Somebody Wants Us

to Have An Airport

County Commissioner Eldridge Money was
selected by his fellow board members Tuesday
morning to serve as chairman of the group for the
coming fiscal year. Money is in the last year of his
first four year term of office. The Board also
employed all its employees for another year.
Money succeeds Otis Davis, Jr., to the position of -', ,

At Tuesday's County Com-
mission meeting, Wilson Haw-
thorn, a representative of
: Associates, aviation
consultant and ,i L .- i-
ists, said they had been sent to:
Gulf County by state organiza-
tions to offer their services in
' making an airport master
plan for the county. Hawthorn
said he was advised by the
Department of I r. .'.." .|.' ".
i to approach the county and
offer his services.
Hawthorn said his firm,
which ., .'- : -, in airport
studies and ,.. -iet.,' reports
'would like to provide the
county with a 20 year look at
the needs of aviation in the
county. "Our study would
include financial -_..'ir,,
environmental impact stu-
dies, financial sources and
facilities needed". The plan-
ning representative said the

Aviation Agency would pay
two-thirds of the cost for such
a study while DOT would pay
one-sixth, leaving the county
responsible for one-sixth the
Hawthorn said the cost for
such a study was hard' to
determine, but would run in
the neighborhood of $25,000.
The representative went on
to say airport construction

came to the Commission cold,
the Board was hesitant to give
the firm an answer and re-

The County continues to
have problems with its Work-
man's Comprehensive insur-
ance. Nobody wants to sell the
county the insurance without
putting it into the assigned
risk pool which makes the
coverage almost prohibitive in
Hannon Insurance Agency
told the Board last month, his
firm was cancelling the insur-
ance and he could offer the
coverage only on assigr '4 risk
"in the future. The reasu. for
the cancellation was due to the
tremendous increase in
claims against the insurance.
v Hannon pointed out the claims
had increased dramatically
over the past few years. He
said the firm he represented
would not continue to absorb

losses on the iP..' ,
Bids were received on the
insurance coverage Tuesday,
but no regular rate bids were
received. Graddy Insurance
r *.p.>, of Wewahitchka of-
fered coverage at assigned
risk for $33,378.00 .per year.
Hannon said this would be the
price for any firm to write
the coverage under assigned
risk-the same plan he had
offered as .a replacement a
month ago,
Both Graddy and Hannon
agreed what the county need-
ed most to reduce its premium
was a safety program. "You
have three persons in your
employ which are costing you
$15,000 in extra premiums
each year", .11+' said.
The Board decided to get
coverage under the assigned
risk rating ** .C the Han-
non Agency and take steps to
inaugurate a safety education
program in an effort to reduce
the premiums.
The Board is still plagued
with road problems as the
result of -heavy rains and

Honorary Cheerleader
Mrs. Martha Sanborn is probably the most vociferous of
the Sharks' many fans. Last Friday night, at football game
half time, her enthusiasm was recognized by the Masonic
Lodge, who presented her with an "official honorary
cheerleaders" jacket. Mrs. Sanborn was escorted out of the
stands by Joni Shores and Janis Schweikert for the
presentation. Bill Rich, right, a Masonic official and high
school pS' I.- h c ,i h T H i,"-h help Martha on with her jacket.
She accepted the .:,i with a lusty "G-0-0- S-H-A-R-R-K-S-! "

They said "Cheer up, things
could be worse". After all'the
week's and months of gloomy
news, there is one ray of
sunshine to report this week:
the M',,.:.ti Hospital re-
ported a small profit at the
end of its fiscal year, Septem-
ber 30, after several years of
deficit operation.
'Administrator Leon Winkler
filed his final financial report
with the Hospital Board at
their .- .* '* Tuesday eve-
ningwhich reported a modest
." of $9,451.03 for the
previous year of operation.
The i." is modest, since it
came from $625,317.50 worth
of business which went
through the : last fiscal
year. After three or'four years
of deficits of up to $80,000, the

t., i,,r) Board would have
settled for $1.00 profit and
been pr .a', satisfied.

cial report, showed $31,874.00

One day a man suggested
that we needed street lights on
Main Street. His opponent
pointed out in rebuttal that the
only use of the street at night
was by an occasional bunch of
dogs. The dogs weaving in and
out, snapping and yelping at
each other in a kind of drifting
circular motion while flowing
down the *street toward the
depot, would remind one of a
dry-land tidal wave-if there
was ever such a wave. The
street light opponent also said
that the dogs knew what they
were doing and did not need
street lights.
Later on progress won out,

and we enjoyed the beauty of
electric lights in the streets
,and homes. To enjoy the con-
venience of light by just the
flick of a switch gave one a
wonderful feeling of achieve-
ment. But perhaps this fine
feeling did not replace the
grand old feeling of carrying
home from the commissary
store a gallon can of kerosene
with good sized Irish potato
stuck over the pouring spout of
the can to keep the kerosene
from sloshing out on the legs.
The fun of trimming-the lamp

ing the globe with a piece of
old newspaper was lots of fun.
How bright the, lamp seem-

drawn window shade when the
young people would return
home late at night from a
social event. The lamp was
kept burning by the wonderful
and untiring love of mothers
who wanted to know and see
that their precious children
were back home and safe on
one more time through the
sometimes friendly, but beau-
tiful darkness of night.

within your means and not demand gold-plate on
everything just because you7 wishes would have
it to be so.
I think it's time for Americans to demand
that Congress live within OUR means. I really
don't know who they think is paying the bills up
there in Washington, but it ieels like it's you
and I.
Carry on Jerry; make those Congressmen
toe the line and bring their spending in line with
our income.

Washington isn't the only place blessed with
law-makers who have unusual ideas. Down in
Miami, Florida Representative Alan Becker is
proposing the State go in hock and buy all the
electric utility firms in the state and operate
them as public corporations.
Rep. Becker says such a move would save
utility users on their bill. I say Rep. Becker must
have stuck his finger in an electric socket served
by one of those utility firms and addled his
In the first place, the utilities are worth too
much money. Tallahassee Democrat editor
Malcolm Johnson says it would take seven times
the present amount of money owed by the state
on all its capital investments to purchase the
state's electric utilities. And with the track
record of the state and federal government in
running business operations, it would take at
least half as much money again each month to
pay the bills to the utility.
Consider if you will: utilities are worth
roughly twice the annual Florida budget. If you
figure real close the taxes you pay for gasoline,
sales tax, auto license tax, beverage tax,
cigarette tax, corporate taxes charged to you,
etc., you will see that it costs more than your
power bill to operate a business half as large as
your electric company. If you buy a car this
year, you will pay more in sales tax on that
automobile than your electric bill will run in
three or four months; even if you have one of 1
those $100 a month monstrosities.
No thanks, Rep. Becker: if you don't mind
just let us struggle along with the fuel
adjustment, the rate adjustment, the franchise j
tax, and fight it out periodically with the Public
Service Utility over our electric bills. We
couldn't take the Legislature setting the rate.

Dean Gioia is a young South-
eastern landscape and sea-

chosen Indian Pass Beach as
his new home. After gradu-
S from Florida State Uni-
in Taliahassee with a
fine arts degree, Gioia moved
outside the :" to be sur-
rounded by the : he
paints. It took a few months to
develop a : for
it was easier to walk
through the countryside than
to paint it. But the .;: :. r- .
took hold and for the past two
years Gioia has devoted his
energies .' : Flor-
ida he has explored since
Dean began : in le-
mentary school and eventual-
ly began to develop a style of
his own. Today, Gioia's style
is realistic though textured
and often muted. Many water-
color techniques help portray
the southern skies and add to
the romantic .., of his
work. '.. -, and var-
ious '* and wash techni-
ques, Gioia is able to achieve a

many pieces. With.

Gioia is looking forward to
his life at Indian Pass and in

Three big defensive plays in

of rapid Ronald Daniels gave
the .Sharks a 1-0 victory over
Jefferson County here Friday
night in the first extra period

Chester Fennell, Preston

came up with the big defen-
sive plays as the Sharks hiked
their season record to 5-0..

the season for the Sharks. The
only scoring against the local

Farmer batted down a last
chance Jefferson pass on the
eighth play of the extra period
which would have spelled
victory for the Tigers.
Meanwhile, Ronald Daniels
ran five, .six, 10 and three
yards in the overtime as Port
St. Joe drove to the Jefferson
25 yard line to end the action.
In the ..-,:.: game, it
was a battle of tough defenses.

45 years ago,we were

the kind of banks that


Florida needed.

r aF ..

In 1930, when Florida and the nation were in the midst of a

financial crisis, the new president of the Florida National Bank

of Jacksonville believed that Florida lacked a sufficiently conservative

banking system. In an interview with the press he said:

"Banks are public trusteeships. Their primary object should

be the safe custodianship of the money entrusted to them.... If all

Florida banks had had this in mind there would have been no failures."

That's what our founder, Alfred I. duPont, said 45 years ago.

That's what the Florida National Banks believe today. No other banks

in the billion-dollar class have as high a capital ratio as we do. And

that's just one of the reasons that people call us "The Old Reliable".

From Tallahassee Democrat
A $5.1 million land purchase
pending before the Cabinet

en route from St. Joseph Spit
to Tallahassee.
Rep. William J. Rish, who at
one time was an attorney for a

Democrat says.

Cabinet with the revelation
That a bank was about to fore

would lose a chance to buy the
land on the sandy Gulf County
peninsula land.
