Tal Oil Dumped In Spill


a j, r i ,,- A freak accident at Sylvachem's Port St. Joe plant last
: ~-gf. Friday dumped an estimated 100,000 gallons of tall oil into a
ditch parallel to Highway 98, according to George Wimberly,
manager of the local plant.
It was about this time of year, two years ago when a
truck was loading tall oil at the plait and had the hose burst,
sending the black gooey mass into the same ditch.
The latest spill came after elaborate precautions had
been taken against a future spill building a dike around
the tank farm which contained the tall oil. This time, one of
the tanks ruptured at a seam, near the top, and spurted the
tall oil over the top of the dike and intw.the ditch again.-.
Work was started immediately Friday afternoon to
contain the mass and keep it from finding its: way through the
drainage ditches to St. Joseph Bay and clean it up before it
could become a pollutant. A construction firm was hired by
Sylvachem to begin the clean-up work immediately and by
noon Saturday, most of the tall oil was taken care of.
Wimberly said he doesn't know why the accident
occurred. "How do these things happen?" he said. "There
are other tanks just like it in the same farm and they are
holding firm, so why did this one rupture? We don't know
yet".
Considerable expense was involved in getting the spill
picked up and hauled off to a burial site before it could cause
.,. damage to the ecology. In the top photo an over-all view of
i ; the spill area can be seen. In the photo at left, a bulldozer
spreads an absorbent over'the tall oil, where it will be mixed
i. with the substance, then picked up and hauled off. New dirt
was then hauled in to replace what had been removed in the
'L."operation.


Tuesday night's City Com-
mission meeting accomplish-
ed at least three things which
have been hanging for a few
weeks. As a result of decisions
made, there will be no mobile
homes, at least for the pres-
ent, in Port St. Joe; remaining
Block Grant money will be
spent on a youth center at the
old Washington High. School
site and a $500 reward will be
posted for information leading
to the discovery of who chop-
ped holes in the roof of the new
pier at the end of Sixth Street.
For the past several weeks,
James Dumas, a former resi-
dent, now of Washington, D.C.
has been seeking a variance in
the zoning ordinance which
would have allowed him to
move a mobile home on a lot
on Avenue B. He wished to
retire there.
Tuesday night, the public
hearing was scheduled on the
variance and approximately
16 people were present to offer
their objections and support.
Canty Jones, who said he
was president of the local
chapter of the NAACP, started
the fireworks, presenting a
petition he said contained 175
names objecting to the var-
iance, Jones 'said he felt
"Mobile homes are degrading
to blacks, degrading to the
community economically and
would depreciate real estate
values". He said his organiza-
tion wished to see the ordin-
ance stand.
Then the fireworks started.
Dumas charged Jones with


everything from not being a-
property owner to not repre-
senting his people, to not being
eligible to object to anything,
to not being able to hold a job.
Jones countered that Dumas
was not a resident (Dumas
said he was born here) and
wishing to downgrade the'
neighborhood while others in-
terested were trying to build it
up and improve it.
After Mayor Frank Pate
and Assistant Police Chief
Roy Robinson finally quieted
down the fracas, the Commis-
sion decided to allow the
mobile home ban to stand in
the zoning code.
REWARD OFFERED
The Commission was out-
raged that the new pier should
be damaged as was reported
in last week's issue of The
Star, for no apparent reason.
Assistant Police Chief Roy
Robinson said he has found out
the holes were chopped in the
roof so boys couldtie a rope to
the roof and use the rope to
swing 'out into the water and.
drop off.
Commissioner James Rob-
erts said, "We can stop that,
let's just put up a board for the
kids to hang their ropes on".
Robinson and Street.Super-
intendent Dorton Haddon both
stated that would be danger-
ous since the water is too
shallow around the pier for
this kind'of activity.
Commissioner Wesley R.
Ramsey then made a motion
to offer a $500 reward for
information leading to the


discovery of who had damag-
ed the pier. Attorney William
J. Rish pointed out that under
new legislation, the City could
hold the parents of minors
responsible for such damages.

Mill to

Start Up

Monday
St. Joe Paper Company
will resume operation of its
kraft paper mill here on
Monday morning with the
7:00 a.m. shift, according
to Production Manager
Harold Quackenbush.
The mill has been shut
down for the past three-
weeks due to a soft order-
situation.
Quackenbush said plans
now are to run the mill.
"just as long as we can".
He said there are no plans
for anothershutdown in the
near future.
There was some specula-
tion that needed repairs to
the Apalachicola Northern
Railroad trestle over the
Apalachicola River begin-
ning next week would close
the mill down. Quacken-
bush said plans are to
continue operation even
while the repairs are being
made by the railroad.

Lightning Storm



Kicks Out Power
Where was most of coastal Gulf County when the lights
went out? They could see for the rest of the day, but the air
conditioners, the machinery, the computers and the lights
didn't work for most of the day.
A severe lightning storm early Friday morning burned
out a switch at the Florida Power Corporation sub-station
when it was struck by a particularly heavy bolt. The switch
threw most of the coast west of the St. Joe Paper Company
office building out of power for most of the day Friday.
The day started with residents in the area eating a cold
breakfast, in a house without air conditioning and no lights to
shave by. St. Joe Paper Company and AN Railroad office
workers came to work to a dark building with no air
conditioning, no office machines, no computers. Sylvachem
and Basic were without power to continue operations.
Residents in North Port St. Joe and parts of the Beaches
spent the day as their forebearers-without electricity.
Jim Cox, manager of Florida Power said an attempt to
get back into operation by replacing transformers near the
office building resulted in fireworks. "We hooked up the new
transformer and it started rumbling, throwing off sparks and
walking across the floor. It was then time to leave", Cox said.
More transformers had to be shipped in from Monticello
and extensive work done at the sub-station before the power
could ever be restored late Friday afternoon,


Gulf County Sheriff Ken
Murphy said this week he
thinks his department is on the
brink of breaking up a gang
which has been harvesting
deer illegally and selling
them. Murphy said Lieutenant
Mack White, with the Sheriff's
Department made an arrest of
two men and three juveniles
earlier in 'the month and
charged them with illegal
possession of a firearm and a
light at night in a protected
game area. Friday night,
White came upon what he
thinks was the same truck the
arrested men were driving at
their first arrest, out on the
Sauls Creek Road near MK
Ranches in the game reserve
area.
Sheriff Murphy said Lt.
White arrested Edward Cau-
sey, age 33 and Charles Lee
Causey, age 26 along with
three juveniles, all of whom
gave their addresses as We-
wahitchka. Murphy said the
group had no game in their
possession when they were
arrested, but they were
caught in the game reserve
area, at night, with the gun,
light and six dogs, all of which
is against the law.
The group was let out on
$502 bond each. Friday night,
Lt. White came upon the same
truck, driven earlier by the
Causeys and their three juve-
nile friends, in the same area.
He called the Game Depart-


ment on his radio and both
White and the Game officers
chased the truck through the
woods until the next morning,
when they lost the trail.

Man Charged

with Burglary

of Dwelling
Port St..Joe Police Patrol-
man Bob Lightfoot booked a
24-year-old Alabama man into
the Gulf County Jail and
charged him with burglary of
a dwelling Tuesday morning.
According to Police Chief H.
W. "Buck" Friffin, Lightfoot
responded to a burglary call at
208 Avenue B at about 1:00
a.m. The victim, Loretha
Jones said a man had entered
her home by knocking out the
glass in the front door and
gaining entrance.
Witnesses identified the sus-
pect as Jesse Lee Williams, of
somewhere in Alabama.
Williams was arrested a
short while after the burglary
by Lt. Mack White and Deputy
Guy White, both of the Gulf
County Sheriff's Department,
after Lightfoot had put the
Department on the alert for
the suspect.
Williams was attempting to
leave the city when he was
picked up by the Sheriff's
Deputies.

We see where other communi-
ties, like Port St. Joe, are in the
business of having to scratch for
federal funds with their own re-
sources if they hope to get their
finger in the federal pie. Port St. Joe
has been pretty successful at getting
what it wanted in the way of Uncle
Sam's dollars, but getting the free
bucks isn't all credit.
Right now, here in Port St. Joe,
the City still has a little money left to
invest into the renovation of the old
Washington High School site. There
are two or three more buildings
which could be fixed up, but there is
money enough to renovate only one.
There are no less than four worthy
activities; which want exclusive use
of the building, and all want the City
to put continuing funds into their
activities out of this federally-fund-
ed facility. Therein comes the rub.
The City does not have the
resources to do everything for
everybody. These particular federal
funds can be used only for the
purpose written into the find re-
quest, which will leave the City with
a fine building and no money to
operate it with. This is true in other
areas also. Federal funds can be
obtained to do things one wouldn't
ordinarily do with local funds.


One of life's frustations is seeing
some insensitive louts destroying
what has been provided for the
enjoyment of everyone. Such an
instance is the senseless destruction
of part of the new pavilion at the end
of the City pier, shown on the front
page of last week's issue of The Star.
Just pure cussedness is the only
reason we can think of to do such a
thing. The holes in the roof weren't
necessary to get into or out of the
pavilion. They were not necessary to
get a better view of the sky. They
served no purpose except to allow
somebody the "thrill" of tearing up
what somebody may someday wish
to enjoy.
It took everything except a
special act of Congress to get

Continuous operations of what is
provided, along with upkeep, mus
come out of the local government
treasury.
For this reason, we believe thai
just getting federal funds merely be
cause they are available can some
times become a liability rather than
an asset.
Just an example is the day care
center requested to be provided with
the remainder of the Washington
High money. The one making the
request, Canty Jones, who said he
was the president of the Port St. Joe
chapter of the NAACP seemed to
labor under the dilusion that the City
would pay for operation of a day
care center, if the building was
provided for this purpose. Jones was
told in no uncertain terms that the
City could not get into the business of
financing a day care center.
S"Oh, but you might give some
help", he said. Here is another area
in which federal give-aways can
become a liability. The City is in no
financial shape to provide such a
service, even though they might be
expected to.
Federal funds can cause head-
aches as well as provide a solution to
some vexing problems.


permission to put that pier and
pavilion back after the hurricane
tore it up two years ago. Permits
were necessary from everyone from
the Corps of Engineers to the
Environmental Protection Agency.
It was also no easy task to come up
with the money to replace the
structure. When people go to that
much trouble and expense to provide
something for everyone in the City to
enjoy and use, it causes sort of a
burning sensation i i the pit of one's
stomach to see someone try and tear
it up for no reason at all.
If we had our way, the ones who
did this deed would bear the expense
of repairing the holes in the roof and
be denied future use of the pier and
its pavilion. They have proved they
do not care whether it is there or not.

Dear Editor:
We have had so many people
ask us what has happened on
the Port St. Joe Volunteer
Ambulance Boo Boo, that we
felt we should get out the
information to all of the
people.
The interesting thing is that
though considerable time has
gone by since this was first
reported in The Star, people
are just as indignant now as
they were immediately after
this happened. Hardly a day
goes by' without calls asking
for someone to get around and
give the people a chance to
sign one of the many petitions
which are being circulated.
Everything is going accord-
ing to schedule. We have set
October 25, the fourth Tuesday
to take this message from the
people of Gulf County to their
servants on the County Com-
mission. This is an evening
meeting and we are sure that
a great number of us will want
to be there. Put this date on
your calendar. Your attend-

" It's Fall


and the

Mullet

Is King
We are approaching a Flor-
ida proclaimed "Seafood
Month" in October so it's not
too early to explore and begin
to prepare fish recipes.
S One of the best buys on the
market today is mullet. When
caught in unpolluted, clear
waters, this fish ranks with
the best in texture, flakiness
and taste. An algae eater, this
fish schools and feeds on the
bottom. In polluted bay or
ocean areas the flesh takes on
the flavor of what it eats thus
accounting for some bad re-
ports and a low estimate of
what the fish is worth.
In clean waters, however,
the flavor is excellent and this
fish is preferred over some of
the more popular and more
expensive species. One of the
best buys at the fish counter,
when they have them, is
mullet. On the coast, since the
fish is plentiful, it will sell on
special as inexpensive as
three pounds for a dollar or at
less than 50 cents a pound.
To get a good idea of the
quality of this fish as a food
S source, you can try this re-
t cipe. Also, the First Annual
Boggy Bayou Mullet Festival,
t honoring this fish as a food
source.is being held Septem-
t ber 24 in the twin cities of
Niceville and Valparaiso.
There you can taste several
Recipes ranging from mullet
gumbo or chowder to fried
mullet and make up your own
mind. If you do, you will be
pleasantly surprised and you
won't be the first to begin
adding mullet to your weekly
menu at a great savings.

ETAOIN SHRDLU

By WESLEY R. RAMSEY


I've told you about Houdini, our part
Siamese cat, before. Houdini is an unusual cat.
He weighs about 15 pounds, which is all
independence. Houdini thinks we run the air
conditioner at the house especially for him. He
thinks the dining room table, where we rarely'
eat, is his special lounging spot. He won't eat
anywhere except where his feed bowl sits at all
times.
He's odd in other ways too. For instance, at
times, he likes a midnight or a 2:00 a.m., snack.
He doesn't do like most people. They will either
go to the ice box or roll over and go back to sleep,
with a greater anticipation of breakfast. Houdini
comes to our bedroom door and goes to making
the Meow Mix call and scratching on the door.
The only thing whichwill topitis forsmed 6To
get up and give him something to eat.
You can see where this would get sort of
irritating, especially if it happened as a regular
thing. Fortunately, it does not.
If Houdini just wasn't so picky, things would
go more smoothly; especially at the time for a
midnight snack. Sidney always leaves food in his
bowl for later munching and Houdini could share
with Sidney, if he just didn't have to have his
special food.

You people here in Port St. Joe are going to
get further innundated with the Ramsey clan.
It's not that another of our kids is going to have
a baby, but more of the Ramsey clan is coming to
town, and are probably already here by the time
you read this.

Wants Positions On Ballot


September 15, 1977
P.O. Box 13351
Mexico Beach, Fl 32410
Dear Editor:
It was refreshing to read the
factual letter you published in
early August from another
Mexico Beach resident con-
cerning efforts to get the local
officials to abide by the Town
Charter. To many Mexico
Beach residents, it appears
unnecessarily difficult to get
public responses from town
officials on such important
matters which affect all citi-
zens of this community.
Although there has not been
further public announcements
by city officials concerning
the election this year, it
appears that all five positions
must be put on the ballot
unless the officials violate the


Town Charter (Chapter 67-
1717, Laws of Florida). Hope-
fully the council will reverse
their decision and announce at
the September town meeting
that five positions will be on
the ballot.
An unfortunate part of this
situation is that should new
residents wait for the official
announcement from the Town
Hall, it may well be too late to
register to vote this year.
Information I have received
from the Bay County Elec-
tions Supervisor indicates that
September 24, 1977, is the
deadline for voter registration
since the voter registration
books are closed 45 days prior
to the election day. The
elections will be held on
November 8th this year.
Sincerely,
James T. Heathcock

Our uncle and aunt, Carnie and Edna
Lansford from California are moving to town to
spend their retirement years. Edna Lansford is
the twin sister of Ed Ramsey and, of course, the
sister of my daddy. They have been living in
California for nearly 30 years, where Carnie was
in the oil business (the production end) and they
have decided, upon the testimony of their son
who came through Port St. Joe a few months
ago, tochuck it all out in California and come to
Port St. Joe to live. They have never been here or
seen the place.
They said it was the selling job of their son
who was quick to see the many virtues of living
in Port St. Joe and Gulf County. I think they are
moving so they can get a good, long drink of
water at any time they want.

SThe so-clled new season of TV has started
and the real thing wasn't nearly so exciting as
the hoop-la for the past month getting us all on
edge to expect something great.
This week, the only new shows I saw were
the movie Wednesday night starring the big
Indian who played in Cuckoo's Nest, which I
thought was a good show. There was the birth of
Kotter's twin daughters, the new version of
Barney Miller, and Carter Country. Kotter
wasn't up to his usual par, Barney Miller has a
blah show for the first one of the season and
Carter Country was just another ignorant
attempt to show what Southerners are like.
It would seem to me that with the claims of
TV and movies that they go to great expense at
creating realism in their shows, they could
spare a few days to come South and see just what
the people are like. It might be a surprise to them
to learn that as many Southerners can read and
write as can people from other parts of the
nation.
Southerners aren't stupid and prove it by
staying in the South. More and more northerners
are proving they are getting smarter every day
by coming South in increasing numbers.

I attended a quarterly meeting of the board
of directors of the Florida Baptist Convention in
Jacksonville last Thursday afternoon and Fri-
day. I heard some startling news there, which
the proceeding paragraph reminded me of.
According to information given out at the
meeting by Dr. Harold Bennett, head of the
Florida Baptists, there will be 40 new people
each hour move into the state of Florida during
the next ten years. The prediction is that the
population of the state will double by 1985. Since
the central and southern parts of the state are
already overcrowded, I guess that means we had
just as well get ready to move over, since many
of these people will have to settle here in
northwest Florida.
You can't keep a good thing quiet.

I went into St. Joe Furniture last Monday,
paying my regular weekly call and ran into John
Blount with fuzz-on his upper lip. I just ignored
the lip brush, not saying a word, until John
couldn't stand it any longer and had to ask me
why I hadn't made a comment. "Everyone else I
have seen this morning has had something to
say", he said.
I told him, "John, I've learned through these
past 25 years not to be surprised at anything I see
you wearing, the length of your hair, the color of
your tie, or anything else. So, the lip decoration
is nothing out of the ordinary and I didn't think it
warranted a special notice".
John was put out. He thought his week end
effort deserved at least a free will mention.

Rotarians Would


Keep "1
If the United States Senate co
were made up of members of un
the Port St. Joe Rotary Club, a
President Jimmy Carter to
would not get his treaty rati-
fled to give the Panama Canal trt
to the Panamanians. po
Program chairman George bu
Tapper created a stir of w(
interest among the club last
Thursday when he asked the the
club members to suppose they of
were members of the United Pa
'States Senate, then asked an
them to vote on whether or not ca
to ratify the treaty, signed
recently by Carter.
If Rotarians had their way,
the Canal would remain in the
hands and under the protec-
tion of the United States. The
vote was almost unanimous t
with one vote being cast for
ratification and 19 votes being .
cast against the give-away. _
Dr. Tom Gibson cast the
only vote in favor of the
treaty, "only", as he explain-
ed it, "to give you something
to think about as you go
casting what will most surely
be. an automatic rejection":
Dr. Gibson said he felt, "rati-
fication of the treaty would
help the United States consid-
erably in its diplomatic rela-
tions with Latin America. I
feel our relations are failing in
this area", he said.
There were several reasons
given for the "nay" votes and
several who just voted "nay"
without any explanation ex-
cept that they didn't think the
canal should be given away by
the United States.
Tapper felt that if everyone
read the treaty, they would
oppose it also. "I may vote
"yes" in the matter if the
United States, in the treaty
language hadn't agreed to pay
the Panamanians more to
take the canal and surround-
ing support facilities than we
have actually spent on them. I.
don't feel we should pay them
to take anything".
Dave May said, "If we ever
pull out of Panama, we will
never go back in and they can
do anything they want with the
canal with no fear from us."

Canty Jones, again asking
for a day care center out of the

by the Commission that the
City could not and would not
get into the day care business,
but that if some organization
could be formed to operate one

lines, the City would make an
application for Block Grant
money to prepare one of the
remaining school buildings for

In other business matters,
the Commission: .
,-Heard the final reading
and passed Ordinances 91 and
92 which increased the water,
sewer and garbage rates in


t!;c City. The new rates will go
into effect on October 1 and
will be evidenced in the bills-
sent out by the City on
November 1.
-Agreed to put up for bids

used by the Washington Ele-
mentary School consisting of a
Block on Main Street in North
Port St. Joe. M. P. Tomlinson
was present and told the'
Board a developer was inter-
ested in buying the block and
building new homes on the
site. The bids will be read at
the last meeting in October.
-Agreed to write the Gulf
County Commission and ask
the County to remove and
replace the old broken foot-
bridge across the drain ditch


at the foot of Palm Boulevard.
The City has tried to move the
bridge, but has nothing big

agreed to a workshop
Thursday afternoon to discuss
the City's insurance needs.
Clerk Wright said the prem-
iums' have now reached the
six-figure amount and it is
time for renewal. Wright said
the only thing which didn't
increase was the City's work-
man's compensation insur-
ance. A low usage rate has
kept that premium about the
same.
-The Commission officially
levied taxes and village for
the fiscal year beginning Oc-


tober 1. The levy calls for
$1,131,818 for the General
Fund budget; $1,742,794 in the
Water and Sewer budget and
$2,319,153 for the Wastewater
Treatment Plant operation.
The millage levy rate will
remain at 5.13 mills, the same
as last year.

THURSDAY, SEP.T. 22, 1977


Ae~n~la~


The tide changed for the
Sharks late in the second
period of grid play this past
Friday night as the Sharks
took District foes, the Florida
High Demons in Tallahassee,
to an 18-6 defeat.
The Demons took the lead
late in the first period, after
St. Joe turned the ball over
deep in their own territory
setting up a score for the
Demons and favoring them
with a 6-0 lead.
The Sharks felt turn about
was fair play though, and
turned two Demon mistakes
into TD's in the last minutes of
the first half. Rick Taylor got
the action rolling when he
intercepted a Demon pass on
the St. Joe 45 and ran it all the
way back to the Demon's 14.
On the first play from the line
of scrimmage, Taylor stepped
back and threw a pass to
'Duane McFarland, good for 11
yards. Halfback Keith Neel
took a Taylor handoff on the
next play and bulled his way
six yards through the middle
for a St. Joe touchdown, tying
the score at 6-6, with 50
seconds left in the half.
The Demons attempted a
reverse play on the kick-off,
which was foiled by an alert
Shark defense. This same de-
fense then shook the ball loose
on the Demon's first play, and
Kieth Neel covered the ball on
the Demon's 28 yard line to
give St. Joe another shot at the
goal line before the half.
On the first play, Duane
McFarland handled a Taylor
pass that had been tipped by a
Florida High defender and
back-stepped into the endzone,
making the scoie 12-6 at the
half.
Port St. Joe made the final
score of the game late in the
third period; again capitaliz-
ing on a Demon turnover.
Wade Stoutamire, playing
defensive end for the Sharks,
recovered a Demon fumble on
their 42. A Taylor pass good
for 23 yards to Tim Beard, a
nine yard gain by Neel and a
three-yard TD surge again by
Neel, gave St. Joe an 18-6 lead
with 3:49 left in the third
quarter.

Griffin on preparations for the meeting held Murphy. -Star photo
here on Saturday. Looking on are Rep. Billy


Nearly 200 law enforcement
organization members and
their guests from 13 cities
converged on Port St. Joe'


Saturday of last week for the
annual meeting of the Third
District Peace Officers Asso-
ciation. -


Withlocal police chief H. W.
"Buck Griffin and his de-
partment serving as hosts for
the meeting, the officers spent
a day 'f business activities,
pistol matches, forums, meet-
ings and plenty of good eating.
The meeting was climaxed
Saturday evening, when a
barbecue supper was served
for the members and guests at
the Centennial Building. May-
or Frank Pate welcomed, the
officers to Port St. Joe and
spent Several minutes heaping
praises on the headof Chief
Griffin for his many years of
service* to the City and his.
enviable record for keeping
the peace. Pate said that in his
opinion, there was a vast
difference between a police
offic4,and an officer who kept
the peace.
Gulf County Sheriff Ken
Murphy served as master of
ceremonies for the evening
dinner meeting, which was
attended by two past presi-
dents of the Florida Peace
Officers Association, Jamie
Pitts of Orlando and Buddy
Peacock of Tallahassee.
Guest speaker for the eve-
ning was State Representative
Billy Joe Rish, who was
introduced by Mayor Pate as
being: one of the best things
which had happened to North-
west Florida.
Taking up Pate's definition
of Port St. Joe's Chief Griffin,
Rish used the theme, "I
wouldn't want to be a police
officer: I'd rather be a peace
officer" for the theme of his
talk.
Rish, in outlining new laws
which give peace officers
incentive to become better
servants and said that if "I
was a peace officer, I'd want
to know what was going on in
my community. I'd want to be
well trained and I would want
to be informed."
Rish went on to point out
that there was a day when "we
hunted out the biggest, mean-
est man in town to be our
policeman or Sheriff, because
he could take care of the bad

Rish urged the peace' offi-
cers to get involved in their
community, its churches and
schools. "Be sincere in what
you are doing and ask God to
help you do what is right in
your job."
Placing in the pistol shoot-
ing contests were Bob Light-
foot of the Port St. Joe Police
Department and Al Harrison
with the Florida Highway
Patrol, stationed in Wewa-

said recent busts show mostly

juana.


Sheriff Ken Murphy spoke to
the Kiwanis Club at its regular
meeting Tuesday at noon,
outlining some of the im-
provements he is planning for
the department during the
coming year.
Murphy said the office now
has four new cars on order to
replace four cars which have
over 125,000 miles of service.
"This is cheaper than contin-
uing to patch the old cars we
have to keep them in service",
Murphy said.
The Sheriff pointed out that
the department is now stres-
sing personal appearance,
courtesy and training among
its officers. "We have also
become self insured with our
motor vehicles" Murphy said.
"If a man has an accident
which is deemed to be his fault
or to which he was a contribut-
ing factor, the $100 deductible
comes out of the pocket of the
officer."
Murphy said his department
is constantly making arrests
on marijuana distributorship.
"We now find that many
