Regional Director Says Figures Misleading

Libraries -to

Remain Open. . Maybe

, Events of the past several
weeks concerning the Gulf
County branch of the North-
west Regional Library System
had almost every member of
the Gulf County committee in
attendance at their regular
meeting last Friday after-
noon.. .
Three weeks ago, a -letter
from the executive board of
the Regional Library recom-
mended thatGulf County be
dropped from the system
since, in their viewpoint, the
county had not adequately
financed their part of the
At the meeting last Friday
afternoon, County Commis--
sioner Billy Branch was pres-
ent and pointed out that Gulf
was second only to Bay County
in per capital contributions to
the system and the C6mmis-
sion felt they were paying
their part, based on the per
capital figure.
Mrs. Jane Patton, director
(of the Regional Library was
also present and prepared to
answer questions concerning
the budget, which she has not
been prepared to do in past
budget sessions of the county.
Mrs. Patton referred to a
letter printed in The Star last
week in iits "Letters to the
Editor"'. column from Com-,
missioner Leo Kennedy, in
which Kennedy attempted to
analyze Gulf's financial potsi-
ition as compared to other
counties Mrs. Patton said the
i figures were misleading and

did not give the full picture.
Mrs. Patton said, "The let-
ter says Gulf pays more per
capital than Washington Coun-
ty and gives figures. First,
Washington's figures given
were for last year and Gulf's
are for this year: Next, Wash-
ington -operates only a small

are larger than Washington

would drop Gulf County from
its system, as per the sugges-
tion of the executive board
remained to be seen, accord-
ing to Mrs. Patton.. She said
most probably the system
would cut back as much as
possible, then operate as long
as it could with the money
Mrs. Patton said her ac-
countants had estimated it-
will cost approximately $48,-
297 to furnish library services
for Gulf County this year. Of
this amount, we had requested
Gulf to pay $36,854." She
pointed.out that there was an
advantage to the system to
have Gulf as a member, which
would offset the extra cost

fended Kennedy's. figures -in
his letter by saying, "We

received the figures used from
Courthouses in the various
counties .and assumed they
were correct. In view of the
figures given to us, our posi-
tion in the matter is correct."
Mrs. Patton countered with,
"The figures you received
from Bay County, for in-
stance, were incorrect. In
addition to what the county
pays, we also receive funds
-from various cities in the
county, which- go to the sys-
tem, but are not reflected in
the county contribution."
Bay was the largest per
capital contributor in the Re-
gion, according to Kennedy's
letter. -
Mrs. Patton said, "We are
not interested in seeing Gulf
withdraw. or to have them
expelled from the system. We
do not want to see the system
begin crumbling since we
believe we have the best
Regional system in the state."
Mrs. James T. McNeill,
chairman of the county li-
brary board, commented that
the library supporters had
been largely silent in budget
negotiations but that they
would be responsive in the
future and offer their growing
voice of support in maintain-
ing an adequate library sys-
tem in the county. She said she
and her committee felt the
library system should be
higher in the priorities than it
presently found itself. <,

City Asks for Additional

Money for Construction

The City of Port St. Joe will
go back to Farmers Home
Administration, seeking to in-
crease its loan with that
agency by an additional $300,-
000. Three years ago, the City
made arrangements with the
agency to borrow $1.4 million
to improve the water and
sewer systems, enlarging
them to double their present
capacity. Included in the pro-
ject was the erection of the
new water tank on Long
Avenue, to replace a tank
which was over 40 years old
and too small, double the size
of the water treatment plant,
built for 4,000 people and
increase the size of the main
lines transporting water from

the treatment plant to the
storage tanks.
Three years ago, when the
project was started, the origi-
nal financial arrangements
were sufficient to do the job.
Since that time, inflation has
taken care of another $300,000.
Enlargement of the water
treatment plant and changing
the source of supply to deep
wells is the only part of the
project left to be completed.
Presently, the apparent low
bid is before the Farmers'
Home agency for approval
before construction can begin.
Farmers' Home has already
told the City they agree with
the rate of increase of the loan
and that it is within the rate of

increase in prices over the
past few years. All that has to
be done is to fill out the
application and get it back to
FHA. They have already ten-
tatively approved the addi-
tional funds.
City consumption has out-
grown the capacity of the
.present treatment plant sev-
eral years ago, and consump-
tion of raw water has exceed-
ed the amount St. Joe Paper
Company will allow to be
taken from its fresh water
canal. This forces the City to
seek other supplies of raw

to foreign markets. According to Travis Roberts, foreman on
the job, the project should be completed within three to four
weeks. Roberts said all that is left to do is to put the capping
on the sheet piling, put down the cement top on the wharf and
do finishing up work. Work on the project was started last
spring, replacing the old docks which had rotted down and
washed away due to lack of use and lack of maintenance.

The City Commission tenta-
tively accepted a new budget
for the coming fiscal year,
Tuesday night, reflecting a
total increase of $180,000 over
the total budget of a year ago.
The new budget calls for
receipts and expenditures of
$5,373,695.00 in the three bud-
gets of General Fund, Water
and Sewer and Wastewater

Treatment plant. Last year's
budget totaled $5,193,765.00.
The new budget calls for a
levy of 5.13 mills in taxes, the
same as last year.
In a breakdown of funds, the
General Fund will be pegged
at $891,409.00. Last year's
general fund, which had a
figure in it for capital im-
provements paid for by a

federal grant, totaled $1,131,-
The Water and Sewer Fund,
which has the new improve-
ments to the water treatment
plant included in this year's
total, comes to. $1,775,348.00.
Last year's Water and Sewer
Fund levy was $1,742,794.00.
The big increase is in the
Wastewater Treatment plant

operation which has increased
to $2,706,695.00 for the coming
year, compared with $2,319,-
153.00 last year. The big,
increase in this budget was an
additional $200,000 for electri-
The new budget will go into
effect on October 1, the begin-
ning of the new fiscal year for
the City.

THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla. THURSDAY, SEPT. 21, 1978

County Commissioner Billy
Branch made a very candid obser-
?' vation at a meeting of the Gulf
County Library Committee Friday
afternoon of last week.
Branch observed, in explaining
the financial condition of the county,
S "We have some very real financial
problems facing us this coming year
S and we will have even more the next
year and years to come. They are
,problems we can do nothing about
but try and solve them. They are

That last sentence made by
Branch was the crux of his state-
- -ment and one some of the incum-
S bents who were voted out of office
. .may could have used to very good
advantage during the recent cam-
paign. This isn't to say that a new
faceisn't needed on occasion, but, as
Branch was saying, one of our main
problems is money, or the lack of it.
The library people wanted more
funding. Every activity funded by
the county and the cities in the
county want more money and in
Many cases, need more money, but
more just isn't available without
more taxes.

Dear Wesley:
The St. Joe Volunteer Am-

- thank Dr. Joseph Vazquez for
Agreeing to volunteer his time
to accept the responsibility of
coordinating advanced train-
* ing for the local squad.
Under Dr. Vazquez's super-
vision, the squad has current-
ly been trained in the use of
the Esophageal Obturator Air-
� way (advanced airway man-
agement). In the next two
weeks the squad will be under-
taking training for IV Ther-
The cooperation between
Dr. Vazquez and the local
ambulance squad will be,
without a doubt, one of the
best things that has happened
since the squad was formed a
little over four years ago. It is
this kind of cooperation that
the squad has been looking
for, for quite some time. Due
Sto the responsibility that goes
z with advanced training, the
squad needs to be in close
contact with the supervising
E physician. Therefore, the
squad has provided Dr. Vaz-
Squez with a portable ambu-
= lance radio. The squad was
able to furnish this radio, due

thing, it has worked down to that
simple equation.
If the county or cities were the
federal government, the solution
would be simple. They could just
borrow the money to provide what
people wanted and let some later
generation pay for them.
But, is that the right thing to do?
Ten years ago, this county had
virtually the same taxing base it has
today. Ten years ago, the county
wasn't called on to finance compre-
hensive plans, without which we get
no federal aid or funds, it had no
medicare payments to make, it had
no mental health, alcohol rehabilita-
tion, library, mental retardation
program, and a host of other things
which must be funded today from
that same tax base.
We can't keep on adding pro-
grams such as the up-coming gar-
bage disposal program which will
cost in the neighborhood of $100,000 a
year, which will be forced/upon us
within the next two years; maybe
next year.
There is a crisis coming, worse
than what we are feeling today. We
are going to have to re-assess our
priorities and putting new faces on
some commission will not make the
problems any easier to solve.
They will take money.

but today variety can cost up to $100.
Times do change.

I THOUGHT Ray Smith had a good band last
year and the year before. This year's edition,
however, is superior to even these past good
efforts. Their rendition of "The Star Spangled
Banner" at the football game Friday night was
unusual and GOOD! Even with only their second
performance of the year, and just about three
weeks to practice, they came up with a superb
performance before the game and at half-time.
To me, it's worth the price of the football game
just to go see them perform.
If Friday's performance of the football team
is any criteria of what is to come, we can say
they are fast coming back to the point where they
were a few years ago. They gave an exciting
performance in their win against Florida High
Friday night.

IT WAS a relief to learn last week that the
paper mill in Panama City would not be closed
down. Can you imagine the impact of putting
nearly 1,000 people out of work in this part of the
state during these times?
International Paper Company announced on
Wednesday of last week that they would sell the
paper mill and the workers and retirees would
not be affected in any manner. According to their
announcement the only change would be in who
signs their pay checks.
International has said their reasons for
getting rid of the mill is that requirements made
on them to meet pollution standards was making
the mill too costly to operate in their plans.
When I saw this, I could not help but wonder
about our own mill. I happen to know what it
costs St. Joe Paper Company each month just to
treat the water effluent from the mill. I have no
idea how much it costs them to do the treatment
inside the mill, which is also a considerable sum.
The amount they pay the City of Port St. Joe
each month to treat their expelled water would
keep most of us in knickers and bologna.
sandwiches for many a year to come.
If IP was having trouble making a profit
under the rules, we can imagine St. Joe is also
having the same problem, since only 30 miles
divide the location of the two mills and they
manufacture virtually the same thing.
What would happen here in Gulf County and
Port St. Joe in particular if St. Joe were to
announce, "We're closing down. We can no
longer make a profit under present day markets
and requirements".
If it happened to IP, it could happen here
also. ')
We pray that it doesn't, but it is something to'-
think about and be concerned about.

Inviting trouble
A classic example of dangerous hunting procedures Is
simulated here by Jimmy Steel (foreground) and Harvey
Bowman. Propping up a gun while crossing a fence or other
obstacle Is practically asking It to go off. The safe way to cross
a fence while hunting Is to unload the gun and hand It to a
companion, keeping the action on the gun open.

Time Now to Transplant

Perennials and Bulbs

Once again it is time to

of these to move, why not plan

lilies. They gain their common
name from the period when
they come into bloom'. Gene-
a lly this is in the early
summer at the first rain
shower. Some of the bulbs are
native to Florida and can be
seen blooming just about Eas-

Nat Fields, activities direc-

spoke of the busy telephones in
the scout office. Anxious mo-.
thers, possibly prodded by
some more anxious sons, are
asking that familiar question
that is very common, at this
time each year - "How may I

get my boy in scouting."
School night is the answer for
most. Fields predicts that at
least fifteen hundred new
members will come in to
scouting by this means, alone.
Notices from the schools,
newspaper articles, bill-
boards, radio and television
spots are beginning to appear
through the council. It's easy
to design a poster and get it
up, but can you design some'
that can be seen and even
stand out among the thou-
sands of political .posters that
now coyer, the streets and
roadways. It wasn't easy but
the boy scouts did it.

Sheriff Ken Murphy showed
a film to the Rotary Club last
Thursday, showing how busi-
nesses encourage armed rob-
bery and also gave remedies
which would discourage rob-
bers from attempting to rob a
place of business.
The film gave some advice
to follow if an armed robber
enters a place of business. The
number one rule is to cooper;
ate with the robber. "Never
resist giving up your money.
The money can be replaced",
the film narrator advised.
Some ways to discourage
robbery are: don't flash mon-
ey where everyone can see it;
use a cash register to keep
money in; telephone the police
about any suspicious charac-
ter seen hanging around; keep
your safe locked; use low
displays to allow a good view
of the entire business and
place cameras to get pictures
of robbers.
Sheriff Murphy said one of
the biggest problems his de-
partment has when recover-
ing stolen merchandise is
'properly identifying it so it
can be returned to the rightful
owner. .
"An owner should have a list
in his possession of the serial
numbers of every valuable he
owns. The serial number
match will make "positive
Murphy cited a case in
example by pointing to a
problem he faced several
months -ago when someone
was stealing 20 hp Mercury
outboard motors. "We recov-
ered several of the motors, but

Harris, Taylor, Gilbert Make 'Jaws Club'

Michael Harris, Rick Taylor
and Vic Gilbert made the
"Jaws Club" after Friday
night's victory over the Flor-
ida High Demons.
What's the "Jaws Club"?.
I'll try to explain.
A new grading system has
been set up by the. Shark's
coaching staff. Under this sys-
tem, each team member is
graded for his efforts, and
awarded for particular areas
of excellence, both individual
and team. Awards are only
given after victories.
That's according to Rick
Williams, one of the assistant
coaches, and author of this
grading system.
In order to attain the "Jaws
Club" award, the team mem-
bers must earn two team and
two individual awards.
Awards bearing such names
as Purple Star, Black Dragon,
Black Bear Paw, Blue Bull,
etc. are earned by the players
for their accomplishments.
The individual -team awards
for this week went as follows:

the majority of the executive
board and he wished for it to
be accepted in that manner.
Commissioner Branch. then
told the committee he was
sorry the cut-back was neces-
sary. "But let's face it", he,
said. "We had only so many
dollars. When they ;were
spent, we had to quit. If we
had cut other areas more than
we did, in order to provide
more library money, they
would be meeting today in an
attempt to see what they could
do about it. We face even
stiffer money problems with
increasing demands from
state and federal agencies to
provide different services.
The only answer is to cut
something out entirely or levy'
more taxes. We have done the
best and most fair thing we
could with the money avail-
Branch expressed sym-
pathy for the library operation
and pledged to do what he
could to see that it provided
adequate service now and in
the future.
A parent, Mrs. William
Smith of St. Joe Beach, enter-
ed a plea to maintain library
service. "My children and
other children in the county
depend on the library for their
school wqrk and reading ma-
terial. It's a service which is
not available anywhere else
and necessary to their good
education", she said.
So, in summary, the library
situation still hangs in limbo.
The Regional Committee still
has to act either to accept or
discard the suggestion of the
executive committee as out-
lined in Lyles' letter of three
weeks ago. In the meantime,
according to Mrs. Patton, the
system will continue to oper-
ate as before; but for how
long, nobody knows.

Ask for More Money

pected to begin before the end
of the year.
In action Tuesday night, the
City Commission has agreed
to drop insurance coverage of
several vehicles to save a
considerable sum of money on
insurance payments.
The City will be self-insured
on four police cars, two drag-
lines, one fire truck, one
garbage truck and one station
wagon. The coverage reduc-
tion is for collision insurance
only and will save the City
$2,800 a year in premiums.
Records show losses in this
area are considerably less
than this amount.
The Commission approved
an agreement' reached last
Thursday between the Tripar-
tite group which contributes to
the operation of the Waste-
water Treatment Plant. The
plant is owned and operated
by the City and its three
customers,' St. Joe Paper
Company, Sylvachem and the
City of Port St. Joe contribute
to its operational expenses

based on percentage of input
to the plant.
Quarterly, representatives
of the three parties get to-
gether, examine their past
performance and set billing
percentages accordingly.
After the meeting last week,
St. Joe Paper Company will
pay 87.14 percent of the opera-
tion; Sylvachem will pay 10.12
and the City of Port St. Joe
will pay 2.74.
The City accepted the per-
centages as presented.

James Wright carried eight
times for over 50 yards. The
touchdown came when Nate
Dozier cut back across the
right side of the line for two
yards. Greg Mathes' kick was
good, to put Wewa ahead.
The Bulldogs mounted one

more scoring threat, but it
was ended when Allen Nelson
recovered a fumble on the 10.
When time ran out, Wewa had
won, 7-6.
The Gators' next game will
be with the Tigers in Blounts-
town tomorrow night.



By Dean Modling
Defense was the theme in
Wewa's 7-6 victory over Liber-
ty County in Bristol last Fri-
day night. Combined, the
Gators and Bulldogs could
manage only 342 yards on
offense the entire game. Both
teams scored a touchdown,
but the winning margin came
when Wewa successfully com-
pleted its conversion attempt
and Bristol did not'.
The Bulldogs' lone ,score

Here's a quick hunting quiz
for Florida sportsmen: Do you
know the difference between
a quota hunt permit and a
' special quota hunt permit?
"They sound very much
alike and we often have ques-
tions about them," 'said Colo-
nel Robert M. Brantly, execu-
tive director of the Game and
Fresh Water Fish Commis-
"Quota hunt, permits are
issued to hunters for the first
nine days of' each. hunting
season and are available for
any of the state's 50 wildlife
management areas," Brantly
said. "They, help ease the
darly season hunting pressure
on the areas.",
"The special quota hunt
permit was developed by the
Commission for weekend ar-
chery, primitive weapons and
modern firearms hunts on five
selected management areas
throughout the hunting sea-
son," he said.
"We are still accepting quo-
ta hunt permit applications for
the first nine days through
September 23," said Brantly.
Some areas still ,have quota
hunt slots open, especially in
Northwest Florida, including
Apalachicola with 7,622 pla-
ces; Aucilla,. 2,899;. Gaskin,
1,659; Point Washington, 2,424
and St. Regis, 1,903.
