Woodrow Cherry Held

On Attempted Murder

Woodrow Cherry, 22, is lodged in Gulf County jail today,
charged with attempted murder in the Tuesday night
shooting of Port St. Joe High School Principal Edwin
According to Gulf County Sheriff Ken Murphy, Cherry
allegedly shot Williams after an altercation at a basketball
game Tuesday. night, in which Williams had Cherry ejected
'from the High School premises for allegedly being under the
influence of alcohol.
According to Sheriff Murphy and Port St. Joe Police
Chief H. W. Griffin, who collaborated in investigating the
case, Cherry was arrested Tuesday night about 11:00 p.m.,
on suspicion of having shot the principal, at the home of his
girl friend who lived across the street from Williams.
Sheriff Murphy said after the game, Williams was
returning to his home and had just gotten out of a car which
had brought him and started in his home when a shot was
fired from across the street. Murphy said the shot came from
, a .410 shotgun loaded with number four shot. He said about a
dozen of the pellets struck Williams in the back. He was taken
to the hospital and treated for the pellet wounds and released.
Williams was to go back to the doctor Wednesday
morning for further treatment and examination.
After Cherry's arrest, the Sheriff's Department and the
Port St. Joe Police Department, spent most of the remainder'
of, the night, piecing the evidence together which was used to
file an attempted murder charge against Cherry. He Went.
before County Judge David Taunton Wednesday for
k arraignment. ..
Murphy said the investigation, which was 'aided' by the
crime lab of Panama City, questioned three witnesses and
performed. parrafin tests on Cherry. Murphy said the
investigation showed that Cherry allegedly went home.after
being ejected from the basketball game and borrowed' the
gun. He then waited in the yard of his girl friend across the
street from Williams' home for his return. After the shooting,
Cherry is alleged to have gone home to leave the gun and
returned to the home of his girl friend, where he was arrested
later by officers.

Ordinance Changes Utility Tax Limits

The City Commission. pas-
sed on the final reading of two
ordinances Tuesday night, one
of which will affect virtually
every resident of the city and
one which will affect, only
slightly, new water and sewer
The ordinance Which will
affect nearly all residents was
an increase in the maximum
of the utility tax.
In the past, there was a $6.00
cap on the 10 percent utility
tax, which meant' that all
utility charges over $60.00
were tax free. The new cap' is
$25.00, which makes utility
charges, taxable up to $250.00.
The old cap has been in effect
since utility taxes .were first
instituted in the city.
The other ordinance. chang-
es the method of charging for
new water and sewer installa-
tions The cost of making the
installation has been averaged
out over a year and a median
figure arrived at to apply to
the future customers. Water
customers will be charged
$150 for a new installation of
water service for a one inch
meter or less. Meter installa-
tions of over one inch in size
will cost $125, plus the cost of
the meter. Sewer installations
,will be made at actual cost.

Write Letters to Santa

With Christmas creeping up on us it's time
for all boys and girls in the Port St. Joe area to
begin writing those letters to Santa Claus.
The Star will print all letters to Santa Claus
received prior to publication of our Christmas
issue on Wednesday, December 20. All letters
received will be printed.
The Star wants Santa and parents to know
what they want for Christmas, so all kids are
encouraged to write their letters early, so we will
have plenty of time to get them set up into type
and ready to print.
All letters received will be sent on to Santa

Another proposed change in
the city ordinances would
make a change in require-
ments for sewer outfall lines.
In the past, only cast iron
sewer pipe was allowable for
installation under and inside a
home and for the outfall pipe
leading. to the city main. A
change in the ordinance would
allow installation of PVC sew-
er pipe from five feet from the
house to the city main. Cast
iron would still be required
under and inside a home The
proposal would require at
least schedule 40 PVC pipe
and will require a clean-out
plug at the property line.
Dedication ceremonies were
scheduled Tuesday night for
Friday, December 15 to dedi-
cate a memorial marker for
the late Mayor Joe Sharit The
memorial, now being built in
the median of Fifth 'Street
near the Highway 98 intersec-
tion will attest to the former
long-time mayor for his inter-
est and efforts for the city in
its early days. Sharit was the
thorn in the Road Depart-
ment's back which made them
four-lane the street when it
was built back in the '30's.
The dedication of the mon-
ument, a project of the Ki-

IT MADE ME shudder to read my weekly
issue of Newsweek magazine last week. as a
matter of fact, it might make one weak of
stomach sick to read the article about the cult at
Jonestown in Guyana which committed suicide
at the whim of their leader, Jim Jones.
The magazine had a two page spread
picture, in full living color, showing the rows and
piles of dead people where they laid down to die
after drinking their cyanide-spiked grape kool-
The picture told the whole story. How
supposedly rational people can follow the lead of
someone who is obviously leading them down a
path of destruction, I will never know. It ought to
tell us something. If you don't know a person,
take what he says with a grain of salt until you
can prove him to be right.
I like to think I would never be so gullible to
follow a person to such lengths, -but when a
persuasive speaker gets to talking, there's no
telling what an individual might believe.
Reading the text which went along with the
article, it was evident the people in Jonesville
were aware of the fact that they were in trouble.
Why they didn't band together to change things, I
don't know; nor apparently, does anyone else.

I'M ALL RIGHT. Saturday, while getting
this piece together, I had a telephone call from a
concerned lady who asked, "Are you all right?" I
assured her I was. She had seen the ambulance
parked here in front of the office and had seen its
blue light go on and take off in a hurry. She said
she thought I had had a heart attack, or
The ambulance was here because the
ambulance personnel came around to our office
after being in the parade, to select the winner of
an afghan they were giving away. While they
were here, the pagers went off, calling them into
service. They turned on their blue light and ran.

This was a. question posed by our compatriot
in the business, Walter Wilson, down in Chiefland
in his paper last week. Walter had been watching
a quiz show on TV where the question was asked
of a so-called celebrity and he answered, "Of
course, if he thought he could get away with it."
That was probably a correct answer, but
what disturbed editor Wilson was that the
audience applauded wildly at the answer.
That's sort of a hard indictment on our
government. Unfortunately it's the way things
are. As editor Wilson put it, "Not only are the
nation's tax laws stupidly written, Washington's
cup runneth over with blooming idiots running
around coming up with stranger and stranger
ways to spend the peasant's money."
I think it is sad when it seems the

A PARADOX came out of the Seminoles'
second win in a row over the University of
Florida recently. All of the die-hard Seminoles
here in town kept saying how Dickey would be
fired if the Seminoles were to beat the Gators.
They smelled it coming after Georgia had beaten
them a few weeks back.
Sure enough, Monday morning, the papers
carried the story that Dickey had been fired. The
President of the University of Florida wrote him
a letter telling him what a fine coach he was and
that he was fired. I'm sure that made the firing
easier for old Doug to take.
Then, the entire last half of the week was
taken up by the sports writers substantiating
what theUF president had said in his letter;
Dickey was a fine coach.
If Doug Dickey was such a fine coach, why
was he fired? I tend to go along with the opinions
of the last part of the week. The University of
Florida has always been an also ran. This would
make one to suspect that they either make it a
practice to hire a second rate coach, recruit
second rate players or have some other problem.

With Dickey's many testimonials to his
ability, and the prolific number of ex-Florida
Gators on the professional teams, it would
appear to me that the '.'some other problem"
is the reason for Florida's troubles. If this is so,
they will have a hard time recruiting a top-flight
coach to fill the vacancy left by Dickey's firing. *
Arkansas' coach Lou Holtz' statement that,
he wouldn't be going to Florida sort o4
substantiates this situation.

Tapper Says Trip to Attend Pope's

Investiture was "Highlight of Life"

George' G. Tapper, of Port
St. Joe, spoke to the Kiwanis
Club Tuesday at their regular
meeting, telling them of his
recent experience of repre-
senting the United States at
the investiture of Pope Paul,
II, in Rome, Italy. Tapper
spent a long week end in Rome
as the government's represen-
tative, at the request of Presi-

A Layman's View

dent Jimmy Carter.
There were 33 representa-
tives from the country which
went to the Pope's installation
ceremonies, including 12 Con-
'gressmen, five Seriators, one
Governor, one Lieutenant
Governor, Secretary of the
Treasury, Secretary of De-
fense, the Ambassador to the
Vatican and several citizens


and public officials and Tap-
Tapper said he received a
call from Washington just
before noon on a Wednesday,
telling his secretary to keep
the phones clear for the next
10 minutes to receive a call
from the President. Tapper
said an aide called him a few
minutes later, then put the
President on the line who said,
"How would you like to repre-
sent the nation at the installa-
tion of the Pope?" "I'd love
to!" Tapper answered. "En-
joy your trip!" the President
said and turned the phone
back over to his aide.
Tapper said he was the only
representative from the South
on the trip, which left Wash-
ington, D.C. at 9:00-p.m. the
following, Friday night and
returned Monday night.
Tapper said he was able to
confer with the Pope and felt
his assuming leadership of the
Catholic Church'would bring

drastic changes in attitudes
between churches of all faiths
all over the world.
"The trip was the highlight
of my life", Tapper told the
Guests of the club were

Raffield, both of Port St. Joe.

last year's three starters from last year's
team back again this year.
These are Tony Larry, Willie
Boykin and Chuck Pollock, all
of whom saw.considerable
action last year.
Coach Lane said Tuesday
before the opening game.
"Our key will be defense. We-
,. are quick and we're going to
'3-. use that quickness to keep the
j ball from our opponents".
Coach Lane also has some
height this year with 6'3" Rick
Taylor and Chuck Pollock.
Lane said, "We will play with
quickness and height, using
each as we need it."
Lane, speaking in his usual
understatement style said,
"We have a pretty fair team
this year".
After the interview, the
Sharks took the court and
proved their coach correct in
his statements by beating
Rutherford of Panama City
55-44, using their quickness.
The Sharks jumped off to a
28-18 lead in the first half and
never looked back. The Sharks
led the Rams in scoring in
every quarter except-the last
one, when they relaxed a little.
Ricky Larry led the Sharks
with 19 points while. Willie

Santa Claus made his 'grand
entry into Port St. Joe Saturday on
an overcast, blustery day. The
weather didn't bother Santa or the
large crowd which gathered to
welcome him to Port St. Joe on his
annual visit. Santa rose to the
occasion with a hearty Ho-Ho-Ho
and a double fist full of candy tossed
to kids as he rode up Reid Avenue on
one of the City's fire trucks.
In this photo, Santa is caught in
the act of letting pieces of candy fly
which was accompanied by a "Mer-
ry Christmas' "
Santa Claus was brought to Port
St. Joe in the annual parade, which
is an annual production of the Port
St. Joe merchants and the Jaycees.

band of Alabama. They were
absolutely sensational, at

The annual Junior Miss
Pageant will be held this
Saturday night. In the past
month or so, some of you may
have begun to wonder whether
or not there would' be a
pageant or not. If you like live
shows, come out and see the
performance Saturday night.
Your support and appearance
is important.

There is a newly formed
group of girls called Mat-
Maids at the school. Their
name is sort of strange, but
their purpose is worthwhile.
Duties of the' Mat-Maids are to
set up and clean mats for the
wrestlers before and after
matches. They also keep score
for the wrestling matches. The
Mat-Maids are: Jamie Mims,
Sherri Raffield, Dianne Gra-
ham, Beth Pollock, Martha
Adkison, Lisa Fadio, Yvonne

Guilford, Lori Heacock, Tere-
sa Sander, Cindy Murphy. The
captain is Karen Kimmel and
Tracy Norwood is co-captain.
