Hospital in Tallahassee.


Lewis Jailed On



Murder Charge


Jimmy Lewis, 32, is lodged
in Gulf County jail, under a
charge of second degree mur-
der as a result of an argument
with his step-father, Gus Ba-
ker, 66, all of Port St. Joe.

SAccording to Gulf County
Sheriff Ken Murphy, Baker
was killed with a shotgun blast
in the back last Wednesday
afternoon during an argument
between the two men. Sheriff
Murphy said Lewis had been
stabbed in the neck with a
butcher knife during the ar-
gument and that Baker had


been shot in the back at close
range with a shotgun as he left
the house.
Lewis is being held under a
$7,500 bond.
Baker was still alive when
Gulf County Volunteer Ambu-
lance Service arrived on the
scene, but he died at Munici-
pal Hospital shortly after from
massive bleeding.
Sheriff Murphy said the
charge was made against
Lewis last Thursday in an
arraignment hearing before
Circuit Judge Larry Smith.


Eight pints of blood were
needed on Monday of this
week and more will probably
be needed.
Those desiring to contribute
blood should call first and
make an appointment so the
hospital will be ready to
handle your donation when
you arrive.
People in the area continue
to help Mr. Ridgley, who has
had massive medical bills in
Tallahassee as the result of
several major surgical proce-
dures in the past three weeks.
A road block this past week
end operated by volunteers
here in Port St. Joe, raised
$1,200. A special account has
been established at the Flor-
ida First National Bank for
Ridgley and anyone wishing to
help may send their contribu-
tion to the bank.
The last report is that Mr.
Ridgley is doing better, but he
is still confined to intensive
care in Tallahassee Memorial.


The City Commission took
advantage of a slack agenda
Tuesday night to begin mak-
ing plans 'for changes in the:
operation of the Police De-.
partment.
Of primary concern of the
Commission is the lack of.
records of complaints filed,
calls made and calls answered
by the individual police offi-
cer Mayor Frank Pate told,
the Commission "We need to
take some steps to improve:
respect for the department".
One move taken by the,
Commission was authoriza-
tion of City Auditor and Cletk,'
Mike Wright, a.former records
keeper for the Leon County
Sheriff's Department, to draw,
up a record system and to'
employ a fourth dispatcher-.
secretary to keep the police
logs during the day, man the
office and take depositions on'
all cases filed by the depart-
ment.
At the present time, there
are no records kept of any
consequence. In the case of
serious cases these duties are;
turned over to.the Gulf County
Sheriff's Department. In the
future, the Commission will
require the police department
to take the depositions neces-
sary and keep adequate rec-
ords of their activities.
"We're not throwing rocks
at anybody". Pate said. "Tbihi'
is the way the police depart-
ment has been run for years
and years and nobody ever
changed it. We just can't
continue to run the operations
of a nine-man outfit out of our
hip pocket."
Pate and the other Commis-
sioners were also concerned
over unauthorized informa-
tion, much of it not true,
getting out of the police de-
partment causing confusion.
The Commission will call for
tighter restrictions on un-
authorized information being
released.
The record keeping pro-
gram seems to be only the tip

Damages


House
Fire damaged a house own-
ed by Mrs. Jake Brake in
Highland View early Monday
morning; according to Fire
Chief Bascom Hamm.
Hamm said the fire alarm
was sounded at 1:30 a.m., with
both Port St. Joe and Highland
View departments answering
the alarm. The fire was con-
fined to one bedroom in the
house which was being repair-
ed for occupancy. The bed-
room was destroyed and the
remainder of the house suffer-
ed from smoke and water
damage.


of the iceberg of changes to be
made in the department, since
the Commission has embark-
ed on a program of making
changes with the view of
making the department more'
effective in the law enforce-
ment business here in the City.
Many of the changes are
being brought about 'by the
abolishment of the Municipal
Court and because of many
complaints the Commission is
receiving from citizens.
NOTICE GIVEN
Notice had been given to W.
W. Starling of Panama City at
a former meeting to clean up
the debris left by a fire in his
service station building at the
corner of Highway 98 and
Third Street last November..
Mayor Pate said Starling
had contacted him about the


City cleaning up the debris
and charging him for it. Pate
said that under the circum-
stances of his formerly occu-
pying the building he didn't
feel the Commission should do
this but offered his services to
help find someone to clean up
the litter.
Attorney William J. Rish
advised the Board they could
take legal steps to require
Starling to clean up the area if
some move isn't made by him
in the very near future.
Starling has assured the
City of his desire to get the
area cleaned up, but thus far
he has not been able to find
someone to do the job.

Several bids were received


City to Feel January

Cold A Month Later


Port St. Joe will begin to
get a "whiplash" from the
January cold Saturday,
when St. Joe Paper Com-
pany will shut down its
paper mill here for an
indefinite period of time.
According to Tom Colde-
wey, vice-president in
charge of operations, the
cold January in the north
has virtually stopped work
of the company's box
plants in that region for the
month and box cars for


shipping the finished paper-~
are stuck in the cold of the-':

Coldewey said, "Nor-..:

INSTALLED AT CHAMBER BANQUET-Left to right: William H. Ramsey, Gerald Sullivan, and Wanda Brown,
David Roche, John L. Miller, Jean Atchison, Billy Rich, Jr., George Core presided over the installment ceremonies.


Mrs. Wanda Brown Starts Second



Year as Local Chamber President


Mrs. Wanda Brown was
installed by Clerk of the Court
George Y. Core for her second
tour of duty as president of the
Chamber of Commerce at the
Chamber's annual banquet
Monday night.
In his installation cere-
mony, Core noted that Mrs.
Brown was not only the first
woman president of the Cham-
ber, but that she was also the
first president to succeed him
or herself for a second term of
office.
Elected to serve with Mrs.
Brown were Mrs. Jean Atchi-
son, Secretary; John Miller,
Vice-President; David Roche,
Treasurer and directors Jerry
Sullivan, William Ramsey and
Billy Rich, Jr.


George Y. Core, left, turns over the gavel

Mrs. Brown said that while
the Chamber had accomplish-
ed "a lot of little projects"
during the year, she was most
proud of a new advertising
piece the Directors have had
designed and is currently
being printed. Mrs. Brown
noted that the Chamber's
advertising material hasn't
been revised since 1963 and
contained largely "canned"
photographs. The new piece,
scheduled to be delivered
within the next two weeks,
contains only Port St. Joe and
Gulf County scenes:in its bid to
show off the attributes of the
area.
Mrs. Brown put in her pitch
for help in securing more
membership for the Chamber

during the coming year. "We
picked up some membership
this year", she said, "But our
activities are limited to a
great degree by our member-
ship."
SPEAKER.
Speaker for the evening was
General Carl Peterson, com-
manding officer of Tyndall Air
Force Base:;
General Peterson told the
audience it was his opinion
that Tyndall Air Force Base
was destined to stay in opera-
tion for a long time to come, if
the money being spent there
and the programs, unique to
the Air Force, conducted at
Tyndall were any indication.
For this assurance of the
future, General Peterson said
Congressman Bob Sikes could
get the credit. "He has been
the one who saw that this base
received funding and pro-
grams which would go a long
way toward insuring perman-
ance for the base".
The General stated that
currently $27 million in new
construction was underway at
Tyndall with more to come.
"Such improvements as a new
communications system, en-
larged runway system and
new permanent buildings yir-
tually insure our future here",
the General said. He also
pointed to the unique training
programs offered by the base
which are not offered any-
where else in the Air Force
and which are vital in keeping
the branch of service combat
ready at all times.
As for the current- crack-
down on traffic violations
against civilians and military
travelling Highway 98 through
the reservation, General Pe-
terson said he was responsible


for that. He defended the stiff
regulations by pointing out
that traffic accidents had been
reduced from two to three
accidents per month to none.,
He pointed out that almost
every year since 1963 there
has been at least one traffic
death and an average of If-
:annually seriously hurt in7
traffic accidents on the reser-
vation. "We couldn't live with
that", the General said.
He pointed out, "We will be
firm but fair with everyone,
but we will enforce the traffic
regulations".
The Port St. Joe Lions Club:
prepared the steak dinner for-
the Chamber meeting, which
was held in the Commons
Area of Port St. Joe High.

Dam Hearings Are


Loaded


SLast week, a meeting by those
io oppose any type dam on the
,alachicola River got together to
Sand decide whether or not a dam
)uld be built at Blountstown to aid
:vigation on the river.
Those who want a low-level,
n-of-the-river dam built also have
eir meetings and try to decide
lether or not it should be built.
It has:always been so in our
stem that when a person steals a
K, trespasses on another's proper-
steals a car, assaults the charac-
i of another or performs any
lawful act against another, he
es before a jury. The jury is
refully selected to see if any of
em has any prejudices in the case,
they have any prior knowledge, if
ey .have had any unfortunate
perie th anybody involved'
eithaesi~def the question. The e
ason for this is so a decision can be
ached in an unbiased manner,
thout prejudice.
When we goto deciding whether
not an entire section of the state
11 have its life-style changed from
ht time forward, we throw such
actices out of the window. There is
unbiased jury called.
People who favor the dam call
Hir people and discuss the merits
the project, leaving out the
rtinent facts. they think will be


harmful to their cause and painting
a rosy picture of what the dam will
mean to the are*'. 4
In the same manner, those who
oppose it, get theiforces together,
occasionally, and paint a picture as
they want to see it-,using the figures
they wish to and the testimony of the
experts they are paying regularly to
accumulate favorable answers to
certain questions without taking the
full effect into consideration.
We think it only fair to our
people and those of south Georgia
and Alabama as well, for the
opponents and proponents of the
dam to present the full facts to an
unbiased group, whomever they
might be, for a final decision.
If those who approve the dam
were to lose their special interests in
'its construction ol their salaries for
proposing thbiconstruction, the pro-
ponent forces would go sadly lacking
for a case.
Again, if those who oppose the
construction were to fire their
environmentalists, their arguments
would be shut offlike a water faucet
and they would have no facts and
figures with which to argue, no
matter how slanted or unslanted.
The dam boils down to money.
Who is it going to benefit and where
will the most benefit lie. This
question needs to be answered -
fairly.

SOur local courts need attention.

witnesses were paid, the prosecutor
was paid for two trips from Marian-
na to Port St. Joe, the Judge was
paid for two trips from Panama City
to Port St. Joe. All of the investiga-
tion in the case had to be paid for;
and the accused were released, free,
without a trial.
In our estimation, this case
which was never tried cost Gulf
County in the neighborhood of at
least $1,000. The accused were never
tried.
Multiply this by several cases a
year in which we are informed this
same thing happens and you can see
a considerable waste of the county's
money.

imposes a 200 mile limit for its
own fishermen (which the
country now has done) we can
see where these other coun-
tries will follow suit."
Raffield said Mexico now
levies $3,500 for a permit for
shrimping off their shores.
"There are only about 200 of
these permits available and as
soon as the boats now working
under- them are taken out .of
production, their permit is no
longer available. In time,
there will be no foreign
shrimping off Mexico."
Raffield pointed out that the


new law didn't prohibit for-
eign fishing closer than 200
miles to the U.S. mainland, it
requires foreign boats to have
a permit to come this close to
shore.
While the new law is in
existence, Raffield said he
doubted very much if the
country has the hardware to
enforce the law. As an in-
stance, he said the Coast
Guard has this responsibility
and has only three boats in the
Gulf capable of patrolling 200
miles from shore.
When asked what depth
water his fleet operated in,
Raffield put his finger under
his nose and said, "Just about
this deep."


tion of the hospital does not
permit the undertaking of any
of the above situations. Conse-
quently, at a meeting on Feb-
ruary 15, 1977, the Governing
Board voted reluctantly to
terminate the emergency
room service effective 12:01
a.m. on April 1, 1977. As a long
term solution, the Board
decided to attempt to recruit
two. physicians who would
primarily cover the emer-
gency room and have a pri-
vate practice at their discre-
tion. Needless to say, this will
prove expensive since they
will have to be guaranteed a
fairly high salary to come
here.
With knowledge of the above
facts, the Governing Board
requests your assistance in
providing emergency room
coverage. The majority of
hospital patients come from
Port St. Joe and Gulf County.
The Board feels that the
county has a responsibility to
assist in the provision of such
services to all county resi-
dents. We suggest that a
meeting be held to discuss this
problem and determine what
alternatives exist. Due to the
short deadline of April 1, 1977,
the meeting should be held as
soon as possible. We will look
for your positive response in
the near future.

Another serious problem of the county is the
lack of order in their meetings. Last Tuesday
night was a case in point, when the meeting,
which should have taken approximately two
hours, went on and on for five and a half hours.
The length of time isn't the real point which
needs attention. The attention needs to be given
to the fact that in such meetings, nothing can get
done. It's costing the tax payers of Gulf County a
pretty penny every year to operate its govern-
ment. When the government gathers to take care
of our business, they need to do just that, and not
be side-tracked by an audience which presents
its problems in an unorderly manner with
virtually no order among those who wish to be
heard. This has been a perennial problem with
the county meetings. It is also evident in the
amount of business (or lack of) which gets taken
care of at some meetings.
Nobody wants to say a citizen can't be heard.
If he has a complaint, he deserves his day before
those who are charged with the responsibility of
taking care of that complaint if he can legally do
so. However, a person airing a complaint should
stick to the subject in a proper manner and the
spectators should not enter into the discussion
unless and until they are recognized by the
chairman.
Such is not the case in our county meetings.
It's all just one big round table discussion with no
limits on the number of people who are allowed
to talk at one time, nor time limits set on how
long the body will dwell on any given subject.
A side effect of order at the meetings would
more than likely be a more enlightened decision
being made for the several problems the people
bring at almost every meeting.

I see where Freddie Pitts and Wilbert Lee
will seek damages from the State of Florida
during the coming session of the Legislature for
the 12 years they spent in jail on a charge of
murdering Grover Floyd and Jesse Burkett of
Port St. Joe.
Perhaps the Burkett and Floyd families
should follow this one closely. If Pitts and Lee
are due compensation, it seems only fair to give
it to these two families, also. The time they will
spend without the company of those killed will be
slightly longer than the time Pitts and Lee spent
in jail.
The state contends that Pitts and Lee are
innocent of the murder. If the Burkett and Floyd
families are not compensated for their loss, the
least the state owes them is an all-out
investigation into finding out just who really did
kill their relatives, if it wasn't Pitts and Lee.

out the world as a contribution
toward world peace and good
will." This year marks the
50th anniversary of this fund,

Pop Top Rings Pose A


Danger to Children


Thi Florida Medical Asso-
ciation reminds parents not to
leave the metal strips from
"pop top" beverage cans
around the house. Toddlers
and small children often swal-
low them.
In many cases, the pop top
strip can be removed success-
fully with surgery. However,


there have been cases where
the child died when the tab cut
through the esophagus into an
artery. Most of the time the
parents are unaware that the
child has picked up the metal
strip and swallowed it. The
diagnostic problem is compli-
cated by the fact that alumi-
num shows up poorly on x-;
rays.


Many pull tabs pass unde-
tected through the digestive
system, but sometimes they
become lodged in the esopha-
gus or aspirated into the air-
way, doctors say.
The FMA advises all par-
ents to be cautious about the
hazard of discarded pull tabs
just as they are now about
