Evans told the council that he would be going to Montgo- mery on Thursday to hand car- ry the applications through the first steps and then they would be sent on to Atlanta and Wash- ington on Friday, which is the first day applications can be made under the program. The council also passed a non-discrimination policy in the area of housing. The re- solution can be read in the le- gal section of this newspaper. Because of the high cost of operating the landfill. Mayor Authority had requested that the city give them some mo- ney to aid with the construc- tion of the hangar at the Flo- rata Memorial Airport.

In December of last year, the council had voted to give the authority a total of $4,500 when they became in need of money for such projects as the han- gar.

All too often we are faced with the tragic bewilderment embodied in the above phrase. Few, however, have come forth with an affirmative, construe- tive program designed to supply the necessary answers. And even fewer have demon- strated that their concern for the safety of others is greater than the value of life itself. In 1953 George Cooper and Bob Taylor were fatally injured while driving from Gainesville to Clearwater for the Jaycee Summer Conference. This tra- ~c loss has inspired the florida Jaycees to recognize those persons in the commu- nity who have made extraordi- nary contributions to the pro- motion of safety. The individual whom the DeFuniak Springs Jaycees feel most exemplifies the ideals of the Cooper-Taylor Award is Wildlife Officer Jessie A. Car- ter. Officer Carter has demon- strated through his efforts that his service to the people of his community is his greatest work of life. In 1966 Officer Carter was engaged by the Florida Game and Fresh Water Fish Com- mission, after having been employed by the Army Corp of Engineers. As an Officer in the Game and Fish Commission, Mr. Carter has served with distinction and merit. In 1967 he was asked by the United States Army to assist in the training of Special Forces Units for combat duty in Southeast Asia. His knowledge and skills in field craft and individual survival were recog- nized by the Army as being significant in the overall suc- tess of this program. On February 2, 1972, Jessie Carter, while on patrol for the Game and Fish Commission, observed smoke coming from a mobile home. He entered the mobile home and rescued ten year old Joyce Potts, who had rbeen overcome by smoke. Having tended to the child's immediate needs, he reentered the burning trailer in search of other victims, and subsequent- ly suffered from smoke dis- tress. Joyce Ann Potts was revived and treated at a local hospital. As a result of this heroic act, Officer Carter was awarded the Florida Game and Fresh Water Fish Commission's highest re- cognition, the Distinguished Service Citation. Officer Carter further de- monstrates his deep concern for the safety of our community through his efforts on behalf of a Search and Rescue Unit for Walton County. He has helped to found this vitally needed Unit, and continues to work unceasingly for the success of this project and for the safety and medical aid of our citizens. j; pd. pol. adv. by Jessie Carter
