jQC Sets Hearing Monday for Taunton

A formal hearing will begin in Panama
City Monday morning at the Bay County
Courthouse to air charges by the state
Judicial Qualifications Commission as to
whether Gulf County Judge David Taunton
has improperly used his office or not.
The hearing stems from an informal
inquiry made by the JQC last fall into charges
that Taunton was not following established
procedure in the conduct of his office. The
informal inquiry last fall convinced the JQC

investigator that there was "reason to
investigate". The investigation was conduct-
ed this past spring and 10 counts of mis-using
or breaking; the code of conduct lodged
against Judge Taunton.
Taunton had 20 days to respond to the
charges. He filed a simple denial of any
wrong doing.
In the meantime, other matters have
come to the attention of the JQC which has

boosted the number of charges by at least
three more counts. Taunton has also had the
opportunity to file a rebuttal to the new
If the JQC hearing goes against Judge
Taunton, there are several avenues of
punishment which can be applied. According
to informed sources, if the verdict goes
against Taunton, the matter will probably go
to the state Supreme Court for application.
Taunton's charges stemmed from a

speech he made last summer before the Gulf
County Commission charging George G.
Tapper, Representative William J. Rish and
Gulf County Clerk of the Court George Y.
Core with improper use of their political
power to enrich themselves. Added to the
matter of the public speech are several
complaints by county merchants who are
dissatisfied with the service they receive
from the Small Claims Court, which is
operated by Taunton.

join with Bay and Walton
counties in forming a new
development council. The new
council would replace the
problem-plagued Northwest
Florida Planning and Advis-
ory Council.
Bob Bates, an employee of
the Bay County Planning De-
partment made the pitch to
the Board Tuesday, asking
that they consider joining in a
group to setup a new develop-
ment council taking in the
three counties as members.
Bates recognized the fact that

a group of counties formerly
in the old NWFPAC were
presently trying to organize a
similar council under Public
Law 163, which would ward off
some of the problems faced by
the old council. "If they fail in
their attempt, we will have a
viable alternative to offer the
state and federal government
for approval", he said. The
organizations must meet state
and federal approval for fund-
ing and to be effective in the
job they are designed to do,
which is to provide guidance

Space Hardware

to be Loaded Here

Port St. Joe is going to get involved in the nation's space
George Tapper, local steamship agent, was notified this
week that a piece of space hardware is being shipped to Port
St. Joe by barge to be transferred to a ship for overseas
Tapper said his firm was notified last Wednesday that
the space hardware which was involved in docking with the
Soviet Soyez station in space last year will be shipped here
from Cape Canaveral for shipment to Leningrad, Russia
where it will be placed in a new space museum being created
in Leningrad. The United States docking module will be on
display beside the Soviet docking aparatus in the museum,
.commemorating the first joint venture in space by two
Tapper said the apparatus will be loaded later this

for members in securing fed-;
eral and state matching funds
and grants.
Commissioner Leo Kennedy
was against having anything
to do with the proposal at first,
stating, "Bay county wants a
weighted vote and if they got
it, they could out-vote Gulf and
Walton county together".::
Bates countered that such-a
proposal wasn't being consid-
ered. "My thinking is to have
a vote for every member, with
each county having two repre-
sentatives and two votes and
each municipality one mem-
ber and one vote. Bay would
have 10 votes under this plan
and Gulf and Walton would
have five each." Bates went
on to say that under the
proposed by-laws, a matter
would require a 100 percent
vote to pass on the first
introduction. If it had to go to a
second vote, a 75 percent
majority would be needed to
pass. This would prevent Bay
from overpowering all other
members in an organization.
Bates pointed out that this
was his thinking only. "There
is no concrete proposal as yet
for the manner of operation.
The members will have to
meet to draw up by-laws and
mode of operation".
Commissioner Billy Branch
joined with Kennedy in fears
of Bay dominating such an
organization but expressed a
willingness to join in the
formation of the group, with

the provision that the county
could pull out if their interests
would not be served by any
rules agreed upon.
Otis Davis, Jr., then made a
motion to join in with Bay and
Walton in the planning stages
of the new organization with
the provision that it could pull
out if county representatives
felt the rules were not suitable
for Gulf. The Board agreed to
go along with Davis' motion

after attorney Fred Witten
wrote the proviso into the
agreement to be signed.
Commissioner Kennedy
took one last shot at the
proposal by stating to Bates,
"Economics would make it
more expensive to operate a
three county system than for a
nine county organization".
Bates countered with, "That
may be true, but the service
would be better".

Harmon Shields, executive
director of the Department of
Natural Resources, said
DNR's Divisi n of Recreation
and Parks has maintained the
site at the request of the local
group since January 1, 1974 on
a "minimum cost basis".
"Dead Lakes is a demons-
tration project designed to
help establish a successful
local assistance facility for the
area," Shields said. He added
that extending the project
through the next year would
cost about $25,000, funds
available from the depart-
ment's current budget.
The 41.3 acre recreational
area, located within the well-
known Dead Lakes region, is
part'of a lake system consid-
ered one of Florida's finest
fishing spots for bass, bream,
speckled perch and shell-
cracker. A 30-unit camping
area and boat ramp are the
primary features requiring
state maintenance.
Dead Lakes is actually one
3,655-acre lake named for
countless cypress and pine
trees drowned by a natural
overflow of the Chipola River.
Many scientists believe the
lake resulted from the Chi-
pola's natural cut-off from the
Apalachicola River. About 10
years ago, a low-level dam
was installed to stabilize the
water level.

The second year, the birds got them all.
Friday night of last week, after picking the
berries on Monday, I was sitting out on the patio.
about dusk after feeding my tomatoes, and I
noticed two bluebirds zip into the yard and land
about halfway up a pine tree just above my
blueberry bushes.
I said to myself, "Uh huh, Mr. Bluebird, you
have come after my blueberries". The bluebirds
surely saw the blueberries, but since he could
probably see me sitting on the patio, he felt he
could wait for his berry feast. I'm assuming he
saw me, since I know he saw the blueberries, and
I'm just a little larger than a blueberry.
A short while after the bluebirds arrived, a
blackbird came zooming in'and landed, also, in a
pine near the blueberry bushes. Blackbirds like
blueberries. He had his appetite all whetted up
for a few berries, but he, too, saw me sitting
there and decided, instead, to get him a drink of
water out of the hose I had running on my pecan
This almost proved the wrong thing to do,
since Houdini, our half Siamese cat was lying on
the patio near my chair.
When the blackbird hit the ground, Houdini
put on his hunting gear. He got his big belly down
against the ground, folded his legs up to
accommodate his new low profile and went
slinking off across the yard in the general
direction of the blackbird.
The blackbird saw the cat coming and
decided he had enough water to drink. He took to
the air and came back down on the ground again
beside some tomatoes I have planted back of my
grape vines. Again, I thought, "Here goes my
tomatoes now. That bird knows where both my
blueberries and my tomatoes are".
The blackbird started skipping around free
and happy like, pecking at the ground and
meandering around between my tomato vines.
Houdini couldn't stand it. He saw the blackbird
in his new position and, Shazam! he went back
into battle readiness, hugging his belly to the
ground, and churned off across the yard toward
the blackbird. This time Houdini had the
advantage of having some tufts of grass, a
grapevine and some day lillies between himself
and the blackbird. He instinctively got the
growth between him and the bird and advanced
on the prey just like a jungle fighter sneaking up
on the enemy. The bird would look around and
Houdini would freeze every hair on his body.
Finally, the bird took off just as Houdini was
getting into position to make that final lunge
toward the prey.
Houdini is fed in the house several times a
day. He gets all he wants and all he needs to eat
without having to work for it. He doesn't even
have to buy it or cook it. It's all made very easy
for him. But, when the opportunity presents
itself for Houdini to get his own food, he takes
advantage of the opportunity, even though every
try isn't successful. He puts forth his best effort.
Isn't it a pity that human beings aren't like
that? Some of them, who are on the dole, are
content to let others feed them. Some are like
Houdini; they are on the dole through necessity;
but when the opportunity arises for them to earn
their own bread; they try.

I hate to see the Boyles shutting down their
business. They have been valuable customers of
The Star ever since they opened up in 1946. They
have been successful in business and we like to
think it was because they were always regular
advertisers in The Star.
The Boyles have worked long and hard over
the past years and they deserve a rest. As much
as we hate to see them shut their business do*n,
we hope they enjoy their retirement in the
