Minnesota?-No-It's Forest Park in Port St. Joe-In Florida


Port St. Joe would make a
pretty northern city. Snow in
the Panhandle Tuesday blan-
keted the city for a period of
time and brought out -the
people in droves to ride
around looking at a sight
which isn't seen very often in
these parts. Since the people
of the community had to
contend with the snow for only
about a 48 hour period, it was
pretty. If the experience had
been longer, the adjective
would probably be different.
The unique weather situa-
tion of Tuesday and Wednes-
day may have been a welcome,
event for kids and adults who
had never seen snow, but to
the native palm tree and
azaleas of this area, the
mixture was about as un-
savory as whipped cream and
pickled beets.
Snow started to fall at 11:30
Tuesday and fell continually
until nearly 3:00 p.m., blan-
keting the city, turning out
school and bringing the every-
day routine in Port St. Joe to a
screeching halt while every-
body went outside to play in
the snow and enjoy the novel-
Since the kids in school

started paying more attention
to the snow than they did to
their studies, school officials
decided to close school Tues-
day at noon and they remain-
ed closed through Wednesday
due to the cold weather from
temperatures which dipped
into the teens. There is no
official source of temperature
here in Port St. Joe, but
thermometer readings as low
as 11 degrees were reported.
While the weather bureau
listed the snow as a storm, the
kids and adults of Port St. Joe
used the happening as a
holiday. The Star's photog-
rapher, out looking for inter-

testing scenes to shoot, found
the streets full of people
throwing snowballs, making
snow men and enjoying -the
phenomenon in general..
For some it was the first
snow they had ever seen. With
the exception of a light fall-ih
1973, which blanketed north-
ern Florida, south Alabama
and Georgia but dumped very
little on Port St. Joe, the
snowfall Tuesday was the first
measurable fall since Febru-
ary 17, 1957. The snowfall, *2.
years ago, was a little lighter
than the one Tuesday.
Several people complained

Water Emergency Caused

by Freezing Temperatures
*/ o ;;: ;-i '*

The snow and its attending freezing'
temperatures put the residents of Port St. Joe
into a potential emergency situation Wednes-
day, even though most of them didn't know it.
Plummeting temperatures froze and
burst the main water valve at the water
treatment plant through which water flows to
the storage tanks on Long Avenue for
distribution throughout the City. Precautions
had been taken Tuesday night, to keep the
pipes from freezing, but they froze anyhow.
Workmen from the Water Department

worked all day Wednesday to make tempor-
ary repairs to the valve.:
The potential catastrophe was in the fact
that the only water supply, the city had was
what was in the storage tanks. Even this
supply was being depleted more rapidly than
usual with frozen water pipes throughout the
city causing leakage. Another break in the
city system was reported on Seventh Street,
where a small main had frozen and .broken.
A fire Wednesday would have put the city
in a ticklish situation.

Another chapter was writ-
ten in the odd $20's when a
packet of the bogus bills was
found at the cdrfier liof th
Street 'and Palm Boulevard,
lying .beside the road. A
resident of the area, out for a
walk, spied the packet lying
beside the road and turned it
over to Sheriff Murphy for
Murphy said the bills, 29 of
them, were rolled up and
stuffed into an empty cigar-
ette package. "They were
evidently thrown from an auto
in an attempt to get rid of
them", Murphy said.
The case of the attempted
use of a counterfeit bill at the
Jr. Food Store was caught by
a vigilant clerk who had been
alerted by her supervisor on
what to look for. Several of the
bogus $20's had been passed at
other outlets of the conven-
ience food stores.
Sheriff Murphy said the U1Sf
Treasury Department has
been called into the case and
is making an extensive in-
vestigation as to the source of
the bills.
Murphy said the bills fou :
this past week end were tfie
same as the one given to the
Jr. Food Store clerk last week.

Cox Says Move Not Feasible

Mayor Frank Pate signs a proclamation
Monday, proclaiming the week of January
16-22 as Jaycee Week in Port St. Joe. During
Jaycee Week, the local chapter puts its
energies to work seeking nominations for
their annual Outstanding Young Man award.
The award will be made at a banquet to be
held Saturday night, in St. Joseph's Catholic

Jaycee president, Abe Miller said the
nominees do not necessarily have to be
Jaycees, but they must be between the ages of
18-35 and be active, outstanding citizens in the
Nomination forms are placed at the Post
Office, Florida First National Bank, Pau-
line's Restaurant, Pier 98, Smith's Pharmacy
and Campbell's Drug Store.

Jim Cox, manager of Flor-
ida Power Corporation here in
Port St. Joe told the City
Commission Tuesday night
that a proposed ordinance to
require underground installa-
tion of utility cables would
mean a considerable expense
for customers of the service
here in the city. "Most places
can bury the cable at a reason-
able cost", Cox said, "but with
the water table like it is here,
the expense is considerable
and must be borne by the
customer". Cox went on to
say, "You can strike water
here shovel deep and we must
bury our cables at least three
feet in the ground."
Cox noted that the telephone
company is beginning to bury
its cable in the ground but he
said, "They can get away with
burying their cable shovel
deep. You can't play around
with electricity, we must get it
out of harm's way".
Cox said that local cus-
tomers not only would have to
bear the burial expense but
would also be faced with pay-
ing for the utility having to

maintain two types of equip-
ment here in Port St. Joe to
service overhand below ground
The manager pointed out,
"We can economically bury in
some places in town, but the
majority of the terrain dis-
courages underground ser-
vice". He pointed out that
most of the emergency service
is made during times of
storms. "With underground

service, we would have to wait
for the water to subside,

stances before power could be

It Costs Less to Live In Gulf Co.

It costs less to live in Gulf
County than is does in 46 of
Florida'a 67 counties, ac-
cording to a recent survey
sent to all state legislators
by Lt. Gov. Jim Williams.
The most expensive county
in which to live in the state
of Florida was Monroe,
with a percentage of 106.78
percent of the state's aver-
age. The cheapest place to
live is Calhoun County,

with a 90.79 percent rating
of the state average.
For the most part, all
Northwest Florida counties
offered a cheaper price tag
on what people use in their
daily lives than counties in
South Florida, even with
the necessity to combat
occasional feeezing tem-
peratures and snow such as
the past few days.
Gulf County was about

average for counties in the
Panhandle as far as living
costs go. Some of the rural
and metropolitan areas
were slightly cheaper and
some cost more.
In the immediate area,
Bay joined Calhoun in be-
ing a cheaper place to
live-slightly. Bay had a
rate of 93.43 percent
against a rate of 95.19 for
Gulf. Franklin county was

higher at 96.04 percent,
Liberty was higher at 95.56,
Gadsden was higher at

Today we install a new President
ofdthe United States, who will em-
bark on a four year period of leading
otr nation. We all wish him well.
SLast week, most of us had our
eyes guled to the tube as we watched
ouri retiring President gave his swan
s6ig. Gerald Ford gave what will
probably be classified as his best
speech while he served as our head
of state.
: Mr. Ford pointed out that Jim-
my Carter would assume the impor-
ta4t role of President of the greatest
nation on earth in much better
circumstances than he, Ford, had
done. When Ford stepped up to
receive his oath of office, the nation
was badly divided, a President and
Vije-President had both resigned in
disgrace within the period of a year,
inflation was galloping and there

: We agreewith Gerald.Ford that..
he has done a good job during his
short stay at the head of the
g0:Vernment in Washington. He has
nothing to be ashamed of. He can
step down with his head held high.

i: One of the hottest debates in
Washington right now is over nation-
at health insurance. With the elec-
tioh of Jimmy Carter and an
overwhelmingly Democratic Con-
gress, it is a foregone conclusion
that some type of national system
will be forthcoming.
Five major legislative proposals
are expected to be reintroduced
when Congress convenes. They
range from a bill that would provide
cost coverage for all families in the
event of a medical catastrophy (an
approach favored by the Ford
administration) to a cradle-to-
grave, comprehensive medical pro-
gram wholly paid for with tax
: The second plan, which Carter
Idaned toward during the recent
campaign, is principally sponsored
by Senator Edward Kennedy (D.-

Had the circumstances of some 30
months previous been any less
severe in their disturbing qualities,
Mr. Ford would probably be the man
being sworn into office today.
We hope that after the passage
of four years, Mr. Carter, with all
honesty, can come before the Amer-
ican people just as- Gerald Ford
did, and honestly say, "I think I have
done a pretty good job. The state of
the nation is better than when I took
office". If Mr. Carter can do this, we
will be satisfied with his Presidency.
We do not expect him to do away
with unemployment, solve the wel-
fare riddle, eradicate inflation,
maintain world peace, balance the
budget or cure the many ills which,
admittedly, afflicts our nation. If he
can make progress, he will have
served well.
While Mr. Carter deserves our
support in,the next four years, we.
feel equally as strong that Mr. Ford-
deserves our lasting gratitude for
not coming apart at the seams
during a trying time for our nation.
Many men would have, under the
same circumstances.

ranging to the $60 to $80 billion level
annually when fully implemented.
Costs aside, the possibility that
Uncle Sam will take over the health
insurance system for the entire
country raises grave questions of
both quality of medicine and loss of
freedom which inevitably accom-
panies socialism. Britain's sorry
system is a prime example of both of
these consequences.
It is true that medical costs have
skyrocketed in recent years, out of
all proportion to the rest of the
American economy. But socialized
medicine doesn't give a very good
promise of lowering these costs.
Rather, the inclination would be for
them to go higher still with govern-
ment operation.
A way should be found through
traditional, private medical and
insurance institutions to control
costs. Otherwise, the cost cure may
well turn out to be worse than the

Wanda Brown, president of
the Chamber of Commerce
asked the Commission to aid
the Chamber in producing a
new advertising brochure to
be used for the next few years.
Mrs. Brown said the brochure
will be re-designed and 25,000
prepared to advertise the
facilities and sights to see in
the vicinity.
The Commission agreed to
furnish the Chamber $300
toward the purchase price of
the brochures.
Mrs. Brown also asked for
the Commission's aid in secur-
ing benches and tables for the
park at the end of Fifth Street.
"Many people eat lunch in this
park every day", she said.
"Many more people come to
the area just to watch the
boats, .enjoy the beautiful
scenery and let their children
play. They need a place to sit
down and have a picnic area.

It's a nice, popular spot and
the tables and benches would
improve it considerably".
The Commission agreed to
aid the Chamber in getting
some benches and tables plac-
ed in the park.
In other items of business,
the Commission:
-Received bids on chemi-
cals for the Water and Sewer
departments, a chemical still
for the Wastewater Treatment
plant, fire hose and carpet for
the work area at City Hall.
-Approved tentative plans
for a heating system at the

This week's column is starting out in the'

"reglet" and a piece of "furniture", "pi" or
"hell box material" or maybe even the fine art of
"planing down a form", but you would probably
have no earthly use for such information and
may not know what you had learned even after it
had been explained.
If I got real desperate, I could use a couple of
inches or two to explain the difference between a
"nut" and an "em" quad, or maybe name a few
type families by name such as, Garamond,
Cheltenham, Goudy, San Serif, Franklin, Sty-
mie, etc. I could even tell you of the startling
discovery I made this past week when I came
into possession of a Timres-Union for the first
time since they quit coming into Port St. Joe. I
learned the TU had switched their headline type
face- from Cheltenham to Bodoni and iad
changed their format from 'eight to six columns.
Wouldn't that be interesting? Couldn't you just
sit for hours and savor news like that?
I think instead, I will tell you a little bit about
Billy Carter again. I know; I used him in this
column last week, telling you about his beer
license. This week, I could tell you about his
softball team girding itself up to take on the
Atlanta Braves in an exhibition game in Plains.
I'd tell you that, but you probably read it for
yourself and I would just be wasting my time and
yours to tell you again.
One thing I can tell you is why I think they
are going to play that softball game. Some
writers think the Braves are doing it for a
publicity stunt, trying to get a little more interest
in their baseball team throughout Georgia. One
of the easiest ways to do that is-to start winning
some ball games this year.
The real reason for the softball game, and
the balloon ride, and the publicized capacity for
drinking beer, and the remarks attributed to
Billy are that in 1980 old Billy is going to
challenge brother Jimmy for his position in the
White House. I think Billy is tired of staying
home watching the peanut shed while Jimmy
gets all the glory. Billy is going to challenge him,
just as any brother would do, just as sure as you
are getting ready to stop reading this gook along
about now.
Maybe I'll even tell you about George
McGovern accepting a part-time teaching
position, teaching government to college stu-
dents. Maybe you could join me in oo-ing and
ah-ing over the possibilities which could occur in
the minds of young people with George
McGovern teaching his interpretation of gov-
ernment. You, like me, would be remembering
his interpretation of what it should be back in
1968. It even made more of us vote for Nixon.
What I thought of was; I thought it was the
school teachers which were hunting part-time
jobs to supplement their salaries and not
Congressmen. Maybe that raise for Congress-
men we heard proposed a couple of months ago is
needed after all.
I could say a few words "about Claudine
Longette, who shot Spider in the gut and got off
with a misdemeanor charge. Poor, delicate,
innocent Claudine; just because she leaves her
husband in the lurch and shacks up for two years
with another man doesn't mean she would stoop
to doing anything wrong. She is merely a victim
of circumstances. Anyone this delicate, good-
looking, and capable of getting her estranged
husband to run to her side in times of trouble
can't be expected to do anything wrong.
Come to think of it, since this is all I have to
write about, I just won't write a column at all this
week. Go back to the first of this column and
don't read it.

According to the Executive
Director of Presidential Class-
room, Angie Whitaker, the
human diversity within the
national student body creates
a unique environment for
interaction: "Learning about
government is only part of the
Classroom experience. The
students themselves claim
that the opportunity to share
ideas and values with peers
from many different back-
grounds is as valuable as the
formal curriculum."
Participation in Presiden-
tial Classroom is often the

Rhonda Herring
result of a combined commun-
ity effort. Local citizens
groups-among them Rotary,
Kiwanis, Civitan, and others-
often join with schools to spon-
sor students to the Program.
Many Classroom alumni are
asked to describe their ex-
periences in Washington to
these and other community or
school organizations.
Presidential Classroom is a
private organization whose
educational activities are
strictly nonpartisan; its

Cindy Cassani Competing for Science Fair

In State Competition

Florida's search to find,
name and reward its first
ladies of youth will have its
final competition in Pensacola
Jan. 30 Feb. 5.
Thirty high school senior
girls, contestants and victors
in local competitions across
the state, will challenge for
the title of 1977 Florida Junior
Miss and the opportunity to
represent the state in the
American Junior Miss Pro-
gram in May.
Miss Cynthia Cassani,
daughter of retired Navy Cap-
tain and Mrs. Henry Cassani
of St. Joe Beach will represent
Port St. Joe in the state
The 1977 program, twenth-
ieth renewal of the annual
statewide event, is the final
official preliminary to the
national program in Mobile.
The 30 contestants will be
vying not only for the state
title and its reward, but for a

host of awards topped with the
winner's choice of a full tuition
scholarship to any Florida
university, Columbia College
in Missouri, or Huntingdon
College in Montgomery, Ala.
Junior Miss state finalists
will begin their week of action-
packed activities with their
arrival in Pensacola on Jan.
30. The program will close
with the selection and naming
of the state's ideal teenage
miss in ceremonies Feb. 5 in
Pensacola's Municipal Audi-
Mary Jo Rankin of Panama
City, the state's reigning
junior miss, is expected to
personally meet and welcome
each of the contestants upon
her arrival. Miss Rankin fin-
ished third runner-up in last
year's national program.
All contestants in the Pen-
sacola competition will re-
ceive a one-third tuition scho-
larship to Huntingdon College.

Each of four runners-up to the
title holder will receive sav-
ings bonds as well as a 50
percent tuition scholarship to
Columbia College.
The Florida Junior Miss
Program, produced and spon-
sored by the Pensacola Jay-
cees, is a statewide scholar-
ship program to recognize,
reward and encourage excel-
lence in the state's youth.
Local Junior Miss winners
advance to the Pensacola
finals which determine the
state's candidate for the
national title.

Wedding Told
Mrs. Pat Norris announces
the marriage of her daughter,
Carolyn Ramona Lloyd, of
Highland View, to Charles
Walter Thomason of Daytona
Beach. The couple was mar-
ried January 10.

Preparations have begun
for the biggest and best
regional science fair in the
history of the area.
"We are hoping that parti-
cipation in the school and
county fair will be heavy this
year," said Lieutenant Colo-
nel Darrell G. Bittle of the Air
Force Civil Engineering Cen-
ter at Tyndall Air Force Base.
Colonel Bittle is the Registra-
tion Chairman for the Three
Rivers Region Science Fair
which will be held April 7th,

Enrolls At

Bryan College
Susan Quarles has enrolled
as a freshman for the second
semester at Bryan College in
Dayton, Tennessee.
The daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. W. S. Quarles, Jr., 209 9th
St., Port St. Joe, she gradu-
ated with honors from Port St.
Joe High School in 1976.

8th and 9th.
"Three Rivers Region" is
the new title for what was,
previously known as the
Region Two, covering the
counties of Gulf, Bay, Wash-
ington, Jackson, Holmes and
"The more young people
who enter the fairs which will
be conducted in the next few
weeks at the schools in the five
counties, the better the var-
iety and quality of entries that
will reach our level," Colonel
Bittle continued. "That will
give the people we select as
winners a better chance for
state and national honors."
In addition to participation,
another key factor in making
the fair a success is money.
"We really need financial
support from the entire area,"
said Mrs. Mildred Sharp, who
is co-chairman of the finance
committee. "There are num-
erous expenses associated
with putting on a fair of this
size ranging from the banquet
and prizes for the winners to

printing of programs."
Persons wishing to donate
money should make their con-
tributions to the "Three
Rivers Science Fair" NCSH
Code 733, Panama City Beach,
32407. Merchants who wish to
donate merchandise should
call either Mrs. Sharp at 265-
5294 in Lynn Haven, or Mrs.
Carrie Fishback at 785-2085 in
Panama City.
"The key to the success of

this year's fair is getting our
financial base established as
quickly as possible," said
Mrs. Irene Wooten of the
Naval Coastal Systems Lab2
oratories, co-director of the
fair. "The young people really
work hard and their efforts
should be suitably recognized.
By the time an entry has
reached the regional fair it
has been judged against liter-
ally thousands of others.


WHEREAS, the civic bodies and service organizations of
our community and the departments of the local government
recognize the great service rendered to this community by
the Port St. Joe Jaycees, and
WHEREAS, The United States Jaycees and its affiliated

January 16-22, 1977, to observe the founding of the Jaycees
and to commemorate such founding by the selection of an
outstanding young man in this community as the recipient of
the Distinguished Service Award, and
WHEREAS, this organization of young men has
contributed materially to the betterment of this community
throughout the year.
THEREFORE, I, Frank Pate, Mayor of the City of Port
St. Joe, do hereby proclaim the week of January 16-22, 1977
as JAYCEE WEEK and urge all citizens of our community to
give full regard to the past services of the Port St. Joe

of the

SGulf County Commission

The Board of County Com-
missioners of Gulf County,
met on January 11 in regular
session with the following
members present: Everett
Owens, Jr., Chairman; Otis
Davis, Jr.; William Branch;
Jimmy Gortman and Leo
Kennedy. Others present
were: George Y. Core, Clerk;
Jerry Gates, Finance Officer;
K. E. "Ken" Murphy, Sheriff;
William ,J. Rish, Attorney;
Lloyd Whitfield, Road Super-
intendent; Tommy Pitts, Mos-
quito Control Supervisor and
Albert Thames, Civil Defense
Veterans Officer.
The meeting came to order
at 9:00 a.m. The Clerk opened
the meeting with prayer, fol-
lowed by the pledge to the
The minutes of December
14th, January 3 and 4, 1977,
were read, approved and
The Attorney informed the
Commission that a quicksand
situation has developed in an
area of Cape San Bias being
used by motorists and fisher-
men; that some vehicles have
"stuck" in the quicksand
causing damage to the
vehicles and that a person
could lose his life in the quick-
sand if he ventured into it. He
then told the Board that he
invited Remus Strickland of
the Department of Natural
Resources to be present at this
meeting and inform the Board
about this situation. Mr.
Strickland said that he has
made a study of the quick-
sand area and finds it to be
about eight feet deep, which is
considered dangerous to
equipment, vehicles and
people. He suggested that the
only answer may be for the U.
S. Army Corps of Engineers to
cut a drainage strip from the
affected area to the open
water, which would allow the
quicksand to be flushed out.
SHe said a fence around the
area will warn people and
vehicles' to stay out of the
area. After ditcusslon, the
Board requested Mr. Strick-
, land to contact the U. S.
Engineers on this matter in an
effort to correct the problem
as soon as possible.
Steve Nations, President,
Florida Engineering Asso-
ciates, was present by request
of the Board for the purpose of
discussing the Oak Grove
Water and Sewer project.
Comm. Davis said that be-
cause the City of Wewahitchka
had encountered certain
minor problems with the in-
stallation of its new sewer
system, this Board wanted to
be sure it didn't have the same
problems after the letting of a
contract. Following are the
questions and answers:
Q: After agreeing on a con-
tract price, will that price be
increased during the construc-
A: Not unless the contrac-
tor is required to perform
additional work that is not in
the original contract.
Q: Will the Inspector or
Clerk of the Works be employ-
ed and paid by the Engineer,
Contractor, or the County.
A: This will be at the option
of the county.
Q: Will a lift station loca-
tion be relocated after the
contract is let, which would
require additional costs?
A: The County must furnish
title or easements for all lift
stations, which should be done
before contract is let; how-
ever, if the County deems it
necessary to relocate a lift
station site after the contract
is let, whatever cost involved
must be paid by the County.
The Attorney said that only
three items are causing a
delay in construction of the
system: 1. acquisition of the
lift station site; 2. an agree-
ment with the city for billing
and maintenance; 3. approval
of the plans by FHA.
Mr. Nations then told the
Board that Gulf County was
not awarded a public works
f'ant for the beaches water
and sewer system, but that
without a grant, the county
can borrow funds to install a
water system, but not a sewer
system, for the beaches area
and that the system would pay
for itself. He said that the type
system in mind will not in-
clude full fire protection sys-
tems. After discussion,

Comm. Branch suggested that
the county should go on this
plan, providing it is the last

resort. The Board directed
Mr. Nations to prepare a full
report on the construction
costs and operation of his
suggested plan and to report
his findings as soon as possi-
The Attorney reported that
the Highland View Water Sys-
tem is in need of a new water
supply; that "Mr. Nations'
plans for the beaches should
possibly include an alternate
to supply water to the High-
land View system.
On motion of Comm. Davis,
seconded by Comm. Kennedy,
the following Resolution was
