Dredging Bids Being Opened 'rues.
pemttn bord bec-s drdigwllsipth ubdt

It has been a long wait, but a letter this week to the Port
St. Joe City Commission from the U. S. Army Corps of
Engineers says bids will be opened Tuesday of next week for
dredging the entrance to Port St. Joe's harbor.
It was nearly two years ago when the need for the
dredging first became acute and local interests began to urge
the Corps to perform the maintenance work. The Corps set
the wheels in motion to get the dredging done but ran into a
stonewall whenitgot to the State of Florida and tried to get a
permit. The permitting process, the first in a new
requirement which makes it mandatory that the Corps get
state permits before dredging, took a while.
The letter contains the good news that bids on

performing the maintenance will be opened Tuesday and
possibly a contract let, but it also contains some bad news
that there may be some more delay in the performance of the
actual work.
According to information received from the Mobile,
Alabama office of the Corps, recent temporary suspension of
contract work in the Corps Nationwide Civil Works programs
may delay the job even longer.
While the dredging of the harbor entrance is drawing
nearer, maintenance work for the channel into the dock area
could be about the same hassel for a permit experienced with

the harbor entrance permit.
Alfred H. McDonald, Acting District Engineer said,
"Accomplishment of maintenance dredging in the inner
harbor channels will be more difficult." Isn't that a
comforting thought?
McDonald goes on in his letter to say that classification
of St. Joseph Bay as an "Outstanding Florida Water" a few
years ago probably will cause permit problems under the
state water quality standards. McDonald said, "This
classification permits no increases of any water quality
parameter beyond ambient except in a highly localized and
restricted mixing zone". Chewed up, this says any channel
dredging will probably run into problems with the state

permitting boards becarise dredging will stir up the turbidity
of the water and new requirements will probably require that
any stirring up of the wat er must be kept to strict minimums
set out by the state."
The letter said that dredging in the future to maintain the
channel may require an upland disposal site which will be the
responsibility of the sponsoring agency (City or County).
McDonald said there is no reasonable chance of securing
a schedule to achieve full environmental compliance for
channel dredging during this fiscal year.
McDonald assured the City' the maintenance work will be
done upon resolving the project's environmental require-

Other County Departments Say They'll Ask for Pay Increases

The Gulf County Commission has
made some of its employees and
departments unhappy with its move
last week to give a cost of living
increase in pay to employees of the
Road Department and the Mosquito
Control Department.
Other people now on the County
payroll are asking, "Why can't we get a
seven percent raise, too?"
The Commission granted a request
from the Road and Mosquito Control
Department employees last week to
give them a seven percent increase in
pay during the middle of the current
budget year. The employees told the
Conimission that inflation was "eating
them up" and they were having a hard

time supporting their families with
prices which continued to rise while
their wages didn't.
The increase in pay raised the
lowest paid of the two departments
from $4.51 an hour to $4.83. The largest
number of the workmen were earning
$5.69 per hour and the pay increase
raised their pay to $6.02. The highest
paid of the crews were making $5.80
and had their pay increased to $6.21
under the pay increase program.
Twenty-three men in the two
departments, plus Charlie Presley,
Courthouse custodian, were affected by
the increase in pay, which is expected
to cost the county an additional $15,000
during the current budget year which

ends on October 1.
The Road Department men will
receive their raise by taking funds from
the department's $20,000 contingency
fund. Tommy Pitts, director of the
Mosquito Control department said he
has made payroll savings during the
year, when a man was absent due to
illness and he has the money in his
payroll account to make the salary
Even though the two departments
found the money in their budgets to pay
for the increase in salary, members of
other county departments don't under-
stand how two departments can get
raises while they didn't..

Sheriff Ken Murphy said his men
are especially upset about the patter.
"I don't have the money in my budget
to pay for any salary increase. I asked
for a reasonable amount of money at
the beginning of the year to pay a fair
wage and maintain a force large
enough so as not to overwork anybody,
and my request was cut, drastically."
Sheriff Murphy said his men are
now working, voluntarily, 10 hours a
day and getting paid for eight just so
the county will have adequate coverage
at all hours of the day. "When you
average it out considering what my
men are being paid and the hours they
are working, they are getting only $3.60
an hour, just a little above minimum

wage. I don't think this is right",
Murphy said.
Sheriff Murphy went on to say his
budget would allow paying his dispat-
chers, an important part of his
operation, only $3.20 an hour.
Clerk George Y. Core said he was
going to request the Commission to
-grant his employees the same percent-
age increase in pay as was paid the two
departments. "I doubt if I will have the
money in my budget for ,any pay
increase, because we were very frugal
in drawing up our budget this year at
the Commission's request. However, I
think it only fair that my people get a
raise also."
Tax Collector Harland Pridgeon �
and Property Appraiser Samuel A.

Patrick also said they would request a
raise in pay for their employees. Both
department directors had their budgets
cut from their original requests by the
Commission at the beginning of the
budget year.
All of the department heads agreed
that the Road Department and Mosqui-
to Control men needed the pay
increase, but felt it was unfair to offer it
to these departments without offering
more pay to the other employees.
The County's contingency funds,
which is set by law at five percent of the
various operating budgets in the
county, will get a working over this
year, it would appear.

Lack of "Tricks"

Would Make DNR More Palatable

If government agencies such as Florida's
Department of Natural Resources would
r efrain from pulling dirty tricks like they
pulled on Gulf County last week, we feel they
could very easily obtain a more trustworthy
relationship with the people.
It's also easy to see why the average
person regards them, as/ well as other
agencies, with outright suspicion every time
they want to "do something" for the
environment or the people.
About five years ago, the DNR and the
Department of Environ/mental Regulation
jumped with both feet on MK Ranches in the
Howard Creek area, 'ior dumping muddy
water into the Apalachicola River when we
had our spring thaws and floods. No matter
that the Apalachicola River brought tons of
mud and silt from upper Florida, as well as
lower Alabama and Georgia, generously laced
with sewer plant run-off, fertilizers, pesti-
cides, etc., MK was the "dirty old man" to the
virgin river and they wanted something done.
MK said, "If you want it done, buy the
land and do it yourself." The DNR did just that
along with several thousand acres of
additional land along the river, all the way to
the upper Brothe is River to prevent any such
thing happening again.

People around here - especially the
sportsmen - were suspicious of DNR and
questioned them closely at the public hearings
which must accompany any such purchase.
"Will the land be open and available as it
always has been to hunters, fishermen and bee
keepers?" the DNR officials were pointedly
They just as pointedly said, "Yes, it will."
That was a sensible and reasonable
answer since the area had been hunted, fished
and bees worked since the time of the Indians

with no apparent degeneration to the swamp,
the river or any other portion of the
environment. The hunters controlled the
population of wildlife and it has flourished.
The fishermen also maintained a fish
population balance in the river and the bee
keeper's bees stimulated the growth of the
species of flora in the woods, keeping them
prolific, thick and luxuriant in growth.
If anything, the presence of the hunter, the
fisherman and the bee keeper has helped
maintain rather than damaged any vestige of

the river swamp.
Now, the DNR says it wants to fence in the
swamp area and give only limited access
under strict rules.
We can only imagine some director awoke
one day with nothing else to do.
We can only draw the conclusion the
director of DNR speaks for the agency and not
for his whim of the moment. If this is not so,
we are in deeper trouble than we originally

Raise In Pay for Some Stirs Tempers of Others

The County Commission seems to have
stirred up a hornet's nest which could cause
them all problems right here on the eve of
The raise in pay given to part of their work
force last week has riled the tempers of those
who didn't get the raise. Those who were
elevated in pay are probably still upset
because the raise wasn't enough.
We think the county staff is underpaid. All
of them. It comes with the territory and it has

always been like this. The Commission cut
their budget so close last year, they can do
nothing with most of the areas under their
direction. It was only a miracle that the Road
Department had the money in its contingency
fund to cover any raise at all. The other funds
don't have this kind of contingency fund, or
either it has already been spent or obligated.
Now, we have the Sheriff's Department,
who had their budget stripped to the bone at
budget-making time, the clerical help in the
various offices, and other employees of the

county asking, "Why didn't we get a raise,
too? Our costs have risen just like the Road
Department's." A justifiable claim.

Since the Commission has already an-
nounced a pay increase for the Road and
Mosquito department employees, it will be
next to impossible to rescind. Without money
in any form to pay a like increase to the other
employees, it will be an interesting few
months until the new budget goes into effect in

_It:is never unusual for us to

Something like this.

occurred on Easter week-end.
We took an arrangement of
silk flowers to the grave of
Victor Daigle, a young man
wvho was killed in an automo-
bile accident after moving to
Louisiana from Port St. Joe.
Victor's parents decided to
bury him here because he
loved the town and people of
Port St. Joe. the Daigle plot is
directly behind our family plot
and as a result Mrs. Daigle
calls us on a regular basis to
place flowers on her son's
grave. We received a call on
Friday from friends of the
Daigle family that the flowers
were missing. Someone had
removed the flowers from the
basket and left behind the
empty container.

of the funeral services, the

I don't know if the proposal will
work as it is expected to, but there is a
need in some freight rate relief.
Probably, however, the freight' rates
are tied so closely to other costs of
doing business, any reduction is
probably remote.
I happened to notice here at The
Star last week just how much freight

freight is assessed against an item.
Last week, we received a shipment of 10
cartons of paper. I was able to break
the freight charge down on this
shipment of one item. When I figured it
out, the charges came to just a little
over $2.0&for a carton of 10 packages of
8�/"xll" paper. That made the freight
charge on each ream package of
81/"xll" paper just slightly over 20c a

than the freight now is.

The Ayatollah
Fifty hostages remain in
Tehran in the clutches of the
Ayatollah Khomeini, a man
possessed with a madman's
genius. The militants in Iran
are caught up in the excite-
ment and religious ideals that
he is setting forth and they
are ignoring the rest of the
world. They view him as a
diety in that "Ayatollah"
means "in the image of the
Lord" according to the
Islamic religion.
Many men aspire to have
power; few achieve it in the
strength that Khomeini has.
Our nation, the greatest on
earth, is being held hostage
by these "students" who
invaded our Embassy last
November and took our fel-
low citizens captive. World
attention is focused on the
Ayatollah as he mystically sits
and directs these students.
The Ayatollah is a very
old man who was exiled by
the Shah and had little
recognition. Finally, through
skillful use of the media and
his radical ravings, he banned
together enough of an impas-
sioned following to over-
throw the Shah and become
the leader of Iran. His leader-
ship has been a mixture of
tyranny and anarchy at the
same time. He is the leader of
a country being torn apart
with internal strife and a
government that cannot get
the authority to govern. The
only followers who totally
respond to his absolutism are
the militants.
The true picture is a man

There are six good reasons
to choose man-made fibers
over natural fibers in your
carpets or rugs. One, man-
made fibers are much more
durable, and do not wear as
easily as natural fibers. Two,
synthetic fibers are virtually
moth-proof, nor do they fall
prey to any of the other insects
that destroy fibers such as
wool. Three, man-made fibers
are non-allergenic. People
who are susceptible to aller-
gies are not affected by
synthetic fibers.
..Four, main-made fibers re-
sist soiling, and are easily
maintained. Cleaning is not an
arduous task. Five, dying of
man-made fibers is easier,
and there is a wider variety.
Six, the texture of man-made
fibers is durable, and as pleas-
ing as any natural fiber.

To tempt your family into
the breakfast habit, make a
batch of home-made muf-

hard to resist. Made with
whole bran cereal and

This particular muffin,
made with Fleischmann's
Corn Oil Margarine, has an
added bonus; it is low in

polyunsaturated margarine,

the committee and is now
ready for the Board's review
and adoption. He told of the
many hours devoted by the
members of the Planning
Commission and the staff
members of the Apalachee
Regional Planning Council in
putting the plan together. He
then recommended the Board
first make a study of the plan
and then adopt it.
Ed Leuchs, Executive Di-
rector of the Apalachee Reg-
ional Planning Council, re-
minded the Board that the
plan is in rough copy at this
time, but should be printed
and bound; that his budget
contains funds for this pur-
pose, but the Board must
request the Council to have the
plan printed in book form. He
also reminded the Board that
it will require an extension of
time from the State for the
adoption and implementation
of the plan. Whereupon, there
was a motion by Commis-
sioner Branch, seconded by
Commissioner Tankersley,
and it was unanimously car-
ried that the Apalachee Plan-
ning Council be authorized to
print and bind the plan and
apply for an extension of time.
The Board thanked Mr.
White and Mr. Leuchs for
their time and effort in
preparing the plan.
Ed Leuchs presented and

Cecil G. Costin, Jr. appear-
ed before the Board on behalf
of an application by St. Joe
Natural Gas Co. for a permit
to install a natural gas pipe-
line on streets in the City of
Ward Ridge. After advising
the Commission of the perti-
nent facts involved in his
application and explaining
that in the event the Commis-
sion determines it may have
no jurisdiction in Ward Ridge,
he then requested a dis-
claimer. The Chairman asked
for an opinion as to the
County's authority or juris-
diction in this matter. After
being advised, there was a
motion by Commissioner
Tankersley, seconded by
Commissioner Branch, to
table the application for fur-
ther study. Commissioner
Kennedy made a substitute
motion that this Commission
refrain from taking any action
as to issuing a permit or
granting a disclaimer until
such time pending litigation
concerning the City of Ward
Ridge has been resolved.
Motion seconded by Commis-
sioner Gortman and unani-
mously carried.

and the Gulf for the purpose of
considering the purchase of
said sites under their program

Mr. Tapper, speaking as
Chairman of the Port Autho-
rity informed the Board as to
the progress being made on
the proposed Port Authority
Project. He said that $250,000
is needed to complete the

construction of the facility. He
said it has been determined by

most likely location that can

Extension of First Street and
running west to Eighth Street.
there was a motion by Com-
missioner Branch, seconded
by Commissioner Kennedy,
and it was unanimously car-
ried to request the State to
grant all necessary permits
for this purpose.
Catherine Ramsey, Port St.
Joe Ambulance Chief, asked
the Board for clarification as
to the ambulance rules on
transferring a patient that is
not an emergency according
to the EMT on duty. She told of
one case where the Wewa-
hitchka Squad requested the
Port St. Joe squad to assist
them by making a transfer of
a patient that was not an
emergency; that she felt she
was being pressured by the
County Commissioners to go
against the by-laws and make
the transfer and that the
transfer was made, even
though the EMT said it was
not an emergency. The Chair-
man and Commissioner Tank-
ersley said they were involved
in this matter because the
Wewa Squad asked for help;
due to the fact that one ambu-
lance was in the shop being
repaired and the other ambu-
lance was on call; that they
did not know the patient,
except that the case was
reported as an emergency.
The Chairman said there are
exceptions to the rules in
certain cases and the Wewa
Squad does make transfers in
these cases. Miss Ramsey was
told to follow the rules, but to

borderline cases.
Oscar Redd. Wewa Ambu-
lance Chief, reported that his
squad earned $1,930.01 in
renting a portion of the
ambulance building to the
Wewa Medical Center, Inc. He
said the Medical Center has
now vacated the building,
leaving everything in good
shape. He then informed the
Board that in his latest
Emergency Medical Techni-
cian Class, eleven people
enrolled in the Class, six of
them graduated and are now
members of the Emergency
Medical Technician Squad. He
said Mrs. Myrtice Dean did an
outstanding job in teaching
the class.

County Engineer, presented

ANotes from the Legislature By:Rep.LeonardHall

This pastweek has been a busy one as the
1960 Legislative Session opened promptly at
10:30 a.nm. Tuesday morning.
As usual the Capitol was overflowing with
legislators, staff, constituents and lobbyists
as we began dealing with over 1,400 bills in the
House of Representatives, some of which are
bound to be extremely controversial. I am
hoping we will be able to resolve each and
every one in a fair and equitable manner that
will benefit all the people of Florida.
To be able to do a good job and deal fairly
with legislation, I need your help. I need to
know how you feel about legislation that
comes up.
I can better serve you if I know your
concerns. To let me know your thoughts and
feelings about issues of interest to you, please
call me collect in Tallahassee at (904) 488-

3457, leave a message with my aide and I will
call you back. Or, you may call my answering
service in Panama City at 785-1427 and I will
get back in touch with you, as I check in with
them at least two times a day. My address
during session, if you wish to write, is Room
232, House Office Building, Tallahassee,
Some of the more controversial issues
facing us this year are energy, taxation,
school funding, and additional appropriations
for the Department of Transportation-par-
ticularly in view of their major budget
deficits. I will be working especially hard for
resurfacing funds, which are sorely needed in
the Ninth District.

31--Pvt. William E. Best, son
of Mr. and Mrs. John Best, 240
Avenue G, Port St. Joe, re-

cently completed basic train-

During the training, stu-

justice, first aid, and Army
history and traditions.

Occupants of subcompact
cars are 51 times more likely
to be killed than the occupants
of a semi-truck when the two
collide said the Florida High-
way Patrol this week.
A recent national study also
shows that even the occupants
of full size cars are 26 times
more likely to sustain fatal
injuries than occupants of a
semi-truck when they collide.
Colonel Eldrige Beach, Pat-
rol Director said, "Until such
time as more of the larger
cars are off the roads, the
compact and subcompact ve-
hicles are at a distinct disad-
vantage in a traffic crash."

"The driver of a subcom-
pact car should treat larger
cars and trucks the same as a
motorcyclist should treat all
cars, with respect."
"Small cars are desirable
for their economy at the gas
pump and eventually they will
provide the bulk of highway
traffic, but large trucks and
busses will be around for a
long time," he said.
"Obeying traffic laws is the
best insurance for all drivers
and becomes doubly impor-
tant to drivers of small cars."
"If you are killed in a crash,
having the legal right-of-way
will only benefit your heirs."
