Taxable Property Increases By
Nearly 17% Over Last Year
Property values in Gulf
County will take almost a 17
percent hike over last year,
for taxing purposes, according
to a report furnished the Gulf
County Commission. Tuesday
According to the report,
filed annually by the Property
Appraiser with the Commis-
sion for the purpose of setting
millage, taxable property will
reflect a sizeable increase in
values over the past year.
Property Appraiser, Joyce
Williams, was not at the
meeting for presentation of
the report Tuesday night, and
was out of town Wednesday
and could not clarify any
questions concerning the

Off At Dark Monday Night
Based on the published
figures on the report, the
taxable property took a $44,-
603,111 jump over last year.
Last year, taxable property
which includes both real es-
tate and personal property,
was pegged at $228,318,758.
This year, the report shows
the taxable, property value at
The largest increase seems
to be in. real estate values.
Additions to the rolls from new
construction shows an in-
crease of only $1,731,390, leav-
ing the remainder of the $44
million increase to be taken up
by real estate value increases.
Where most of these in-
creases in values are located
was not clear from the report,
but with heavy action in real
state sales along the coastal
areas of the county, most of
the increase is suspected to be
in this area.
There isn't much of a gap
dividing the real estate values
'and the personal property
values. (furnishings, belong-
ings, etc.). According to Ms..
Williams' figures provided the
County Commission, Gulf
County will have a taxable
value of $143,573,300 placed
against real estate this year.
Personal property will carry
a value of $127,491D614.
The report is furnished the
County Commission to provide
a guide for setting millage
rates for the coming year.
Budget activities have not yet
started in 'the county or the
cities within the county as yet,
but Ms. Williams report is the
first step in getting the budget
work started. The' report
provides the taxing bodies
with a report of how much
taxable property is available,
in relation to the year prior.
The County has 16 more
days to accept or reject the
report as it was presented
Tuesday. The county has 30
days to answer or acknow-
ledge the report, but the short
time for answering this report
is because Tuesday was the
first meeting the Board has
had since the report was
The County will meet Mon-
day, July 8 in special session
to begin their budget work and
take their necessary action
toward Ms. Williams' report
In addition to the general
valuation report, Ms. Wil-
liams also turned in a report
on taxable values of the three
fire control districts in the
county; each reflecting an
Overstreet Fire Zone dis-
trict was increased from
$4.011,240 to $6,024,853. How-
ard Creek Zone was increased
from $7,628,643 to $7,805,399.
Tupelo Fire Zone jumped
from $18.109,320 to $20,071,974.
St. Joe Fire Control District
took the largest hike in both
percentage and dollars from
$68,270,771 last year to $81,-
311,297 this year.
Fireworks will be the main course of'the
day for the July Fourth holiday here in Port.
St. Joe again this year. The City of Port St.
Joe has purchased a large fireworks display,
which will be set off by the Volunteer Fire
Department memWe#i at dusk Monday, July 4
S. in the Cit) Park the west end -of Fifth
The firemen will set up their shooting
area on the edge of St. Joseph Bay near the
end of, the pier and begin the activity of
setting off the fireworks at about 9:00 p.m., or
as soon as it is dtrk enough to make the
display effective. *
City Clerk Alden Farris said this year's
display will last about 45 minutes with a
larger and more colorful selection on hand
this year for the finale of the fireworks
program. "The program will be closed out
with a display in the shape of an American
flag", Farris said. "This is the piece we put;
our emphasis on this year and will be larger
than it has ever been before", he said.
In addition to the fireworks display, the
Lions Club will set up and operate a
concessions booth for a time, prior to
the fireworks show, starting at 5:00 p.m.
According to Rex Buzzett, Lions project
chairman, the club will be serving hambur-
gers, hot dogs, barbecue sandwiches and cold
Both Farris and Hamm joined in urging
people to stay on the grassed area at the park
during the evening to avoid the danger from
falling debris and sparks.
"We haven't had anyone hurt at any of
these displays in the past and we don't want to
start now", Farris said. Hamm said the
firemen would be on the beach area at the end
of the pier walkway, shooting off the
fireworks and there could be danger to
spectators who stand in the area.
The fireworks program can be viewed
from anywhere in the park area or the bank
parking lot with complete safety.
This is the third year in a row the city has
provided the fireworks display on the Fourth
in what has become an annual event.
Major Capital Expenditures Being,
Plannedfor The Coming Year
The Gulf county Commis-
sion needs to get started on its
budget, Clerk Jerry Gates
told the Commission Tuesday
.night. "There are 'several
capital improvements you
have been planning for next
year, and we need to start
planning ,now to meet the
deadlines with the budget
. plan", Gates advised the
Primary among the capital
improvement items will be the
establishment of a garbage
compaction station here in
south Gulf County, to substi-
tute for the land-fill program
the county has been using in
the past. The land-fill opera-
tion is being brought to a halt
on orders from the Depart-
ment of Environmental Regu-,
lation and all garbage trucked
to the extreme'north end of the
county for burial at Buckhorn.
The county is planning a
joint operation with the City of
Port St. Joe to install a
compactor system to compact
garbage and trash for the haul
The station and all "hard-'
ware" needed to transport the
garbage is expected to cost in
the neighborhood of $300,000.
The County will pay half the

by capital expenditures will be,

Richard Alexander and Wil-

In Month of June
Two records have been set here in Gulf County

unofficial weather person; Emily Simmons, who is
carrying on this tradition from her late husband, Bill
As you may have guessed, we have had a sufficiency
of rain in the month of June more than a sufficiency,
as some see it.
As a matter of fact, Gulf County had a record set for
rainfall during the month of June. According to
Simmons' records, June of this year, was the wettest,
June we had received in nearly 20 years.
Mrs. Simmons' rain gauge shows Gulf County
received 11.2 inches of rainfall during the month. The
central and northern sections of the county may have
received more than that. Prior to this year, the wettest -
June experienced by the county was back in June of 1965,
when 13.6 inches were recorded.
Ironically, last month-May-was the driest month
of May experienced in 18 years. The county showed a
total of four-tenths of an inch of rainfall last month. In
May of 1965, there was absolutely no rainfall at all
Remember, the month isn't over until midnight
tonight, so Gulf County still has a chance to go over the
1965 record of 13.6 inches, since the figures given here
are through Tuesday night only.
.New Trial For
The suit by parents of a
paralyzed boy will go back to
court, seeking damages from
an insurance company for
injuries suffered in an acci-
dent involving a Port St. Joe
A new trial was granted
for four-year-old Leroy Davis,
Jr., by District Judge Maurice
Paul, to begin in Panama City
on July 25 of this year.
Davis won a $2 million
verdict on March 31 of this
year and his father was
granted an award of $70,000 in
the first trial.
According to Davis' attor-
ney, Robert Sitron of Talla-
hassee, the new trial was
granted because the father's
award was inadequate. The
order from Judge Paul said
both the claims of the father
and son are interrelated, so
both must be tried again.
Davis' attorneys asked for
the new trial two weeks after
the verdict was given in the
first one, claiming the award
for Leroy Davis, Sr., was
inadequate. Their claim was
that the court ruled Davis was
responsible for the boys' med-
ical expenses until he reached
his 18th birthday.
During the trial, experts
called by attorneys for the
insurance company, estimat-
ed the child's medical expen-
ses and rehabilitative costs
would be $706,000 during the
next 14 years. The court also
set up the child's award in'
trust with mechanics set up
where money could be with-
drawn for medical expenses
Robert Earl Davis, 69, of
Port St. Joe, was killed in the
same accident.. His widow,
Mary, was awarded $250,000
by a Gulf County jury in
February of this year.

Both Gaddis and Vise estimated the huge shark to weigh
around 1,000 pounds. He was 12% feet long. The pair caught

approximately the same length and weighed 1,250 pounds.

I remember every July Fourth -

fireworks of our choice.
Even then, you didn't get much for
a dollar, but you got decidedly more

dollar, you could buy more fireworks
than you could carry in both hands.
( I GUESS WE GOT up earlier on
July Fourth than on any other day of
the year, unless it was Christmas.
When daylight peeked its head over the
tree line in the east, it was time to get at
popping those fireworks. There were
cans to blow into the air, paper bags to
rip apart with mighty explosions, holes
to blast in the ground with the powerful
two inch red salutes. If you lived
especially dangerously, you would
sneak one of the powerful crackers in a
glass bottle or jar and blow it to

IT WAS HARD to get through a
July Fourth without a burned finger
or a blasted digit.
Back when I was a kid, there were
always, several duds in a pack of fire
crackers and the practice was to break
the unexploded cracker in the middle
and light the exposed powder. Usually,
the cracker would zig-zag off in a crazy
pattern or go round and round.
Occasionally, it would go off and result
in burned fingers.
Then there was the accidents of
holding a cracker too long after
lighting it and it would go off in your
hand, leaving a painful burn. Uneven
fuses, short fuses, or picking up
unexploded firecrackers resulted in
these burns and explosion injuries,
Still, we loved it.
THE OTHER DAY I read where an
illegal fireworks factory blew up in
Tennessee, killing several people. The
fireworks manufacture is illegal every-
where in the United States, I suppose.
But, take a commodity which is as
universally enjoyed as fireworks and
someone is going to make them,
illegally or legally.
I know they are dangerous. I know
tender young kids have no use playing
with such dangerous toys. I agree, they
shouldn't be sold or shot. They are
dangerous in every way. If they're not

they are setting fires.

strokes declined 40 percent

The Florida Highway Patrol has
made a grim prediction 'for the
Independence Day Holiday Weekend.
Based on statistics gathered during
the past three July Fourth Holiday
Weekends, 27 people will die on our
highways this year during the 78-hour
holiday period which begins at 6:00
P.M., Friday, July 1, and ends
midnight, July 4.,
There were 23 fatalities during the
* same period last year and our records
show the leading causes of thgse fatal
accidents were Careless Driving, Dri-
ving While Under- the Influence of
Alcohol-Drugs and Speeding. The Flori-
da Highway Patrol will focus on these
violations during this July 4 holiday
period with the drinking driver being
the number one target.
Colonel Bobby R. Burkett, Director
of the Florida Highway Patrol said,
"We will use all available resources to
reduce the number' of fatalities and
injuries over the long holiday weekend.
Every available Trooper, Auxiliary
Trooper, Aircraft, and Radar Unit will
be utilized to spot and apprehend
violators. Accidents are preventable
and drivers and pedestrians have the
option to obey or not obey the rules of
Traditionally, traffic to and from
the', beaches is heavier during, this
holiday weekend, a mixture of drinking
and careless drivers produces an
explosive set of circumstances..
Troopers will keep a close watch in
these areas for such violators, special
teams will be concentrating on enfor-
cing the DUI Law and'regular work
hours" will be altered so as to have
maximum coverage during the hours of
high frequency DUI vio6latioins'.
"I ask you, the motoring public, to'
help us by first obeying all traffic laws
and-. second by calling the nearest
Highway Patrol Station or Local Law

any dangerous actions by a driver or

A recent report by the Con-
gressional Research Service, a
branch of the Library of Con-
gress, provides dramatic
evidence that a nation's
economic health is closely
related to the commitment it
makes to research and develop-
v ment programs.
While many citizens voice
concern about the beating our
economy.is taking from foreign
products, most seem to feel'
-.. that the fault lies with cheaper
overseas labor, trade barriers to
U.S. products, or a perceived
inertia of our economic system.
The great debate on the
issue revolves primarily around
wvwhether or not the United
States should retaliate against
foreign trade barriers by limiting

For our economic system
the tools are better education
from the earliest grades through
advanced university degrees
(particularly in the scientific and
technical fields), andca greater
national investment in .our
future through basic and ap-
plied civilian research and
My legislation to substantial-
ly increase federal expenditures
for scientific and technical
education has already been ap-
proved by the U.S. House of
Representatives and is'now in
the Senate. While not a total
solution, this legislation at least
starts us on the. road to

The other half of the formula
S ifor economic recovery,
however, is increased commit-
ment in both the private and
public sectors to civilian
research and development.
The Congressional Research
Service study, in comparing
three years for 'vhich figures are
available, shows a definite cor-
relation between the amount of
money a nation spends for
research and development, the
percentage that represents of
gross national .product, and the
''' '- economic health of each nation.
For my illustration I have
chosen the United States,
Japan 'and West Germany for
In' 1969 when most
Americans were still driving'
American cars and watching TV
on American sets, the United
States spent $17.9 billion ofn
civilian research and develop-
ment representing 1.9 per cent
of gross national product
(GNP); Japan spent $2.9 billion
representing 1.71 per cent of
GNP; and West Germany spent
$2.5 billion, or 1.64 per cent of
By 1975 the U.S. expendi-
ture for research and develop-
ment had increased tq- $26.2
billion but the percentage of
GNP had dropped to 1.69;,
Japan's expenditure had risen
to $9.9 billion and 2 per cent of
GNP; with West Germany
spending $8.7 billion or 2.08 per
cent of GNP. 1
In 1979, the last year for
which comparable figures are
available, the U.S. outlay was
$42.4 billion representing 1.76
per cent of GNP while Japan

Also included in the study
were the United Kingdom and
France which 'invested less .in

In 1969 the other four coun-

tion of the new license, which
will affect the person who
actually harvests and sells
saltwater products, will close

chain of saltwater. products
According to Floyd Adams,
Chief of the Bureau of Marine

"While the sale of products
resulting from those activities
commonly thought of as 'com-
mercial fishing' will obviously
be covered, the Saltwater
Products License will also be
required for the sale of bait
taken from saltwater, for a
recreational fisherman who
sells his catch, and for the
party or head boat that sells
the catch of the day:" In other-
words, all transactions, until
now unlicensed, where salt-
water.products change hands
for cash, merchandise or

cluded under the licensing
beginning on October 1.
The fees for the Saltwater
Products License are: Resi-
dent of the State of .Florida,
$25.00 per year; Non-resident,
$100.00 per yeai; Alien; $150.00
The new licensing program
will aid-in gathering fisheries

food quality control. The reve-
hue generated, by the sale of
the saltwater products license
