Former Sheriff Still

Popular Figure In Gulf

Gulf County's former long-time Sheriff, B. E.
Parker, of Wewahitchka, was honored last Saturday
evening by the Masonic Lodge with a fish fry, inviting
all of his area Masonic friends to the affair. About 150
people attended during the evening, expressing well
wishes to the former Sheriff.
Parker, who is now 86 years of age, served as
Sheriff of Gulf County from November, 1936 to 1972. His
36 years of service as Sheriff caused him to be the dean
of Florida Sheriff's, serving in the office longer than
any other man in the state.
Parker was born in Alabama on May 22, 1894. He
moved to Gulf County on May 19, 1916. He was married
to the former Alma Montgomery on March 26, 1922.
For several years, Parker operated a barber shop
here in Port St. Joe. After his election as Sheriff, he
'moved to Wewahitchka where he has resided ever
The former Sheriff is a veteran of World War I and
is a member of several veterans organizations which
were formed by veterans of that war including the
American Legion, and the Forty and Eight. He is also a
member of the Moose Lodge, Odd Fellows, Masons,
Shrine and Order of Eastern Star.
Parker became a Master Mason on April 17, 1924
and has served as Worty Patron of the Eastern Star on
two occasions, 1941 and 1947.

Present Sheriff,.Ken Murphy served as master of
ceremonies at the dinner Saturday night and told
several tales which old timers remember about the
former veteran Sheriff.
Parker is still a jolly man who is quick with a joke
and laughter. According to Murphy's tales, he was
even more of a jolly fun-loving person when he was a
younger man. From Murphy's stories, the former
Sheriff was one of the first of the "free spirits" before
the term gained such popularity in recent years.
The former Sheriff served well in his office, being
opposed in election very seldom and always winning
his elections by large majorities until his last, when he
was narrowly defeated in 1972 at the age of 76.
Sheriff Murphy described the former peace officer
as a Sheriff who handled law enforcement duties in
Gulf County with respect.
While Parker was handling the Sheriff's duties in
the county, he earned the respect of virtually everyone
and is possibly one of the best known men in Gulf
County today.
In the photo at right, Parker, in the center, is being
presented plaques of appreciation for his service by
Joe StClair, left, in behalf of the Masonic Lodge and

Sheriff's Association.

Suspects Health Dept. Fever Victim

County Commission Instructing Dr. Weathington to "Handle It"

The Gulf County Commission sus-
pects the County Health Department is
ill with a fever of discontent and until
further tests are made to find the cause
of the trouble, the Commission is
reluctant to prescribe a final diagnosis.
The Board isn't allowing the fever
toto unchecked without making anf
~ampt to bring it down. As a result of
aengthy consultation on the matter
Tuesday night, the Board instructed
their acting clerk, Jerry Gates, to send
a letter to the county health doctor, Dr.
W. T. Weathington to come to meeting
with the Commission to discuss the
All of the Commissioners were
concerned Tuesday night that .they
were personally being bombarded with
symptoms of discontent in the Health
Department by people who work there
and are connected with the operation in
some manner. Commissioner Jimmy
Gortman was the most vocal stating,
"I'm tired of every time we turn
around, there is a complaint from some
:member of the Health Department. We
-don't need that kind of thing."
Chairman Doug Birmingham sug-
gested the Board instruct Dr. Weath-

ington, the county health doctor, to take
steps to get the operation running
smoothly once more, or the Board will
take the matter to the state office.
Birmingham said, "That's Dr. Weath-
ington's responsibility in such matters
as this; not ours."
S T'Phe County participates in the
operation of the Health Department by
a contribution of local tax money for
part of the operating expenses, but the
actual day-to-day operation is handled
by the Department of Health Services
in Tallahassee. The local board has no
authority to employ or dismiss anyone,
but can strongly recommend in either
case, with their suggestions carrying
considerable weight on the state level.
Nobody definitely said what the
problem is, but one incident at the
County Board meeting Tuesday night
seemed to be a part of the situation.
Mrs. Nancy Mock, a recently hired
clerical person at the Port St. Joe clinic
was before the Board, requesting that
she be shown a letter which had
allegedly been written to the County
Board describing her as incompetent.
Her. attorney, Fred Witten, told the
Board Mrs. Mock had gone to Tallahas-

see with the allegation and had been
tested by the state office and declared
as efficient, competent and fully
capable of doing the, job. Mrs. Mock
wanted to know who had written the
letter and if the County Board was
going to consider the complaints made
against her..
The Board told Mrs. Mock they
didn't have a copy of the letter and
didn't know who wrote it; They also said
they were not going to even consider the
charges which might have been made.
Again they pointed out, "That's Dr.
Weathington's responsibility if there is
any need for concern."
Other letters were read during the
course of the evening, praising another
member of the department staff. The
letters were considered by the Board to
be another part of the problem.
The Board was unanimous in a
decision to send a letter to Dr.
Weathington asking that he look into
bickering and differences among per-
sonnel; that he personally direct both
departments in the county; that he
attempt to hire a second sanitarian for
the county; that he see that all citizens
using the facilities receive prompt and

courteous service. The letter went on to
state that if improvements weren't
noted within a short time, the Board
would take the matter to the state
department head for handling. If this
course fails, the Commission said it
would take necessary drastic steps to
clear Op the matter.
The letter is to be hand delivered to
Dr. Weathington today by Commission-
ers Leo Kennedy and Jimmy Gortman.
The Commission let the last of
several paving contracts Tuesday
night, awarding one of two bids to
Florida Asphalt Company of Panama
City for resurfacing and to Gulf Asphalt
Corporation of Panama City for new
paving projects.
The resurfacing contract was for
$239,182.40. The contract included sur-
facing for streets in Beacon Hill, St. Joe
Beach, Wewahitchka, White City and
Port St. Joe.
The new construction contract was
in the amount of $187,733.88.
Both contracts were the low bid.
Reggie Tisdale of Barrett, Carlan
and Daffin of Tallahassee, the county's
engineer for the project, stated his
concern over some of the recent paving
performed by Florida Asphalt Paving
which is not sticking to the former
surface. "We don't know why the

paving is slipping, but Florida Asphalt
has volunteered to forego payment until
they correct the situation and have
expressed a willingness to come back
and do the jobs over where the paving
didn't stick. With their attitude of being
willing to correct the problem, I feel we
can safely recommend that they be

awarded the job in which they were the
low bidder".
Tisdale said the problem experi-
enced in the recent paving could be
from a number of causes, including a
defective bonding agent laid down
between the new and old paving. "We

most of the day last Thursday.
The first alarm, which went
off at mid-morning, called the
department to the home of
Billy Quinn on Avenue D. The
family was not at home at the
time, so the fire had a good
start before it was discovered
and the alarm sounded. The

by the fire and suffered
from water damage.
SAround noon, the depart-

Editorials and Opinions


Amendments Outlined In Persuasive Language

When you go the polls for the second
time this election season on October 7, you
will be asked to cast your vote on five
amendments to the State Constitution. Do
you know what they say? Do you know
what they will do for or to you? Here is a
capsule look at the five amendments and
what their purpose is.
Amendment 1 proposes a tax exemption
for homes and businesses installing solar
energy devices. The exemption would be
effective for ten years and, in addition to
lowering fuel bills, would result in a
significant savings in taxes.
We oppose this amendment because in
the constitution, it would be a ruling forever.
If solar energy indeed becomes a viable
source of energy, there will come a day in
the near future when we would wish to
erase this exemption. It could better be
handled by statute.
Amendment 2 would create a state
finance agency that would permit revenue
bonds to finance or refinance residential
S housing. It proposes a complicated struc-
ture which its supporters say would require
no tax money but would assist middle
income families in purchasing housing and
would bolster the housing industry and the
state's economy in general.
Write into the bill that it would use no
S tax money and remove the complicated
structure and we would be for it. Other-
wise, no.

Amendment 3 would allow cities and
counties to grant non-school real and
tangible personal property tax exemptions
for new and expanding businesses and for
community redevelopment. Gulf County's
Commission has discussed the possibility of
tax exemption for the proposed Florida
Power plant being considered for Gulf
County. However, such an exemption would
have to be approved by the people in a
referendum of the people.
We like the theory, but would oppose
total exemption of local taxes, even though
some of our neighboring states are doing
just this to attract industry. New industry
requires new local services, some of which
are solely for' the industry involved. They
should pay a just share just as our other
industries do and not expect the man in
the street to pay his bills for him. With the
provision in this amendment leaving final
word up to the local tax payer and citizen,
we will be for it.
Amendment 4 increases the homestead
exemption on non-school taxes to $15,000 in
1980, $20,000 in 1981 and $25,000 in 1982.
We'll vote against this amendment
because it is unfair in the first place and
negates any benefits which we might
receive from Amendment 3. So many

dollars must be received each year. With
this amendment, you would still pay even
more taxes from the 100 percent valuation,
or you would shift the responsibility of
providing those tax dollars to that new
industry you are trying to attract to
provide jobs for your children, making it
even less attractive for him to locate in
Florida. We think the decision of how much
valuation to place on a piece of property
and taxes to be levied on that property are
better decided on a local level where we
can shake our finger in the face of our
local people in government if we don't like
Amendment 5 would remove the consti-
tutional mandate of a tax on business

inventories and give the Legislature author-
ity to exempt inventories from ad valorem
The state now requires a place of
business to pay taxes on goods which he
has not sold at the end of the fiscal year.
This raises the price of his goods, since all
taxes and expenses of operating a business
is passed to the consumer. We believe this
amendment to be a just amendment.
All of the language in the amendments
are written in order to appeal to the voters.
We would be willing to bet our most prized
possession, our favorite recliner which fits
us perfectly after a hard day at work, that
none or all of the amendments being
passed would not save you one tax dollar.

"TRIM" Bill Could be A Means of.

"Trimning Tax Payer"

Jerry Gates, newly elected
-Clerk of the Court of Gulf
County, spoke to the Rotary
S .Club last Thursday, outlining
" a new bill which the Legisla-
. ture passed in the last ses-
sion, known as the "TRIM"
S. Gates said the bill would
: be more properly labeled,
: "!Trim the taxpayers" bill.
S- 'It was designed to provide
property relief, but only
- quits taking taxes from one
pocket and starts taking it
out of the other. The Legis-
lature and the Governor
have fooled the people into
thinking they have tax re-
lief, but have only succeeded
in taking the taxes from
another source in some in-
S stances and putting local
government in a bind in
Gates said the newly in-
troduced $25,000 exemption
for local school taxing pur-
poses has shifted the finan-
cial burden from property
taxes to sales taxes. The
state is reimbursing the lo-
cal school district taxes with
sales tax income, providing
Sno tax relief. In a proposed
amendment to be voted on
in October, the counties and
cities will be placed in deep
trouble by a proposed $15,000

homestead amendment.
"There is no provision for
replacing this money with
state revenues".
Gates pointed out that lo-
cal government must have a
certain amount of money to
provide present services and
the money must come from
somewhere or the services
be curtailed. With millage
limits and directed expendi-
tures from the Legislature in
certain areas, local govern-
ment will be faced with
coming up with other local
sources of revenue or drop-
ping government services.
Gates said state mandated
programs cost the county
and cities throughout the
state a substantial portion of
their budgets each year.
"With these mandated pro-
grams which must be fi-
nanced by local funding, I
feel the Legislature has been
negligent and unfair to place
the cities and counties in the
position they. will find them-
selves in if the amendment
Gates pointed out that
even if the amendment pas-
ses, individual homeowners
won't get enough tax relief
to feel the difference. But
when the small amounts are
lumped together, they mean

a great deal to local govern-
ment programs. "The home-
owners have been fooled into
believing they will get a
substantial tax relief from
the bill, but the amendment
will only apply to those
counties where property is
assessed at 100 percent of
market value, and this defi-
nition is designated by the
state of Florida, not the
local Property Appraiser".
Gates went on to offer the
opinion that local tax payers
could be hurt more than
they were helped by the
increased homestead exemp-
tion. Coming from a person

- Gates

who deals in this kind of
thing daily in budgeting the
county's funds, this was a
pretty scary statement to be
making before property tax
The main thing which con-
cerned Gates was that with
the new amendment, which
would reduce local govern-
ment's taxing powers, it
would also have the effect of
further reducing local con-
trol, bringing closer the day
when all government would
be controlled and originate
from the state level rather
than from the local level.

Sheriff Seeking Recruits to

Beef Up Auxiliary Force

Sheriff Ken Murphy said
this week he is attempting to
increase his force of Auxiliary
Deputies to assist the Sheriff's
Department and upgrade
their manpower in the time of
emergency and special
events. This is a volunteer
organization made up of peo-
ple interested in better law
enforcement in Gulf County.
An Auxiliary training pro-
gram will begin Wednesday

evening, October 8, in Port St.
Joe and anyone interested in
the Auxiliary program of the
Gulf County Sheriff's Depart-
ment is asked to make appli-
cation at the Sheriff's office as
soon as possible, because the
applications must be screened
and approved in order to be
enrolled in the upcoming
training program. The train-
ing program is being conduct-

SMan s Tinkering With Nature Didn't Cause Tetratorn to Disappear

come up with another species whose
time on earth was over and so
disappeared from the face of the
earth. Whether the giant bird, made
public last week in the papers after
discovery of fossils in Argentina was
because it no longer fit into the
scheme of things here on earth, or
simply because there was no En-
vironmental Protection Agency
around at the time to prevent its
demise, we'll never know.
A giant bird, named the Teratorn
by those who discovered the fossils,
was said to have measured 11 feet
from beak to tail, weighed between
160 and 170 pounds and a wingspan
of 25 feet. The monster is presumed
to have the capability to fly, based
on the bone structure in its wings.
The point is, even with nature in
S-perfect harmony, acting naturally as
only nature will, the bird disappeared
-without the help of man. Man didn't
-destroy its nesting places with air-
ports, high rises, super highways,
:: pesticides, fertilizers, dams, subdivi-
:sions or mines. The bird, like more

species than exist on the earth today,
just disappeared from the earth
because it could no longer adapt to
the changing world. The world chan-
ged considerably before mankind
began to tinker with it. The ice age,

the great flood, the age of numerous
volcanoes, heat, and extreme cold
made the forces of nature worse than
man has ever thought of being
toward the environment. Even in our
years, Mt. St. Helens has dumped
more pollutants into the air than
man has in this century.
don't really know except that man

has a responsibility not to foul his own
nest. I admit to that. We all need to
support activities which might prolong
the day when man will
be in the position which the Teratorn,
the dinosaur, the pterodactyl and the

whooping crane find themselves in.
Natrure no longer had need of these
species so they faded from the scene.
Man could also arrive at the point in
time where he was no longer needed
on earth.
If I had to draw a conclusion as
to why this great bird vanished, why
the other ancient species vanished
and why such birds as the bald eagle

are in danger today, I would have to
conclude that they were put here for
a purpose, and that purpose is
coming to an end. If this is the case,
nothing man can do will prevent
their demise. If they no longer fit

into the natural chain of nature, their
purpose and livelihood is ended.

ed the fabled H. L. Mencken, the
much-heralded and quoted late editor
of the Baltimore Sun. Mencken would
have been 100 years old last week.
James Kilpatrick, whose writing

I admire, more so than Mencken's,
wrote one of his worst columns last
week, praising Mencken for a quote
attributed to the late writer, which
showed just how prejudiced and
narrow-minded even an educated per-
son can be.
The paragraph, written by Menc-
ken, said, and we quote:
"Down there (in the South) a
poet is now almost as rare as an
oboe player, a dry-point etcher or a
metaphysician. It is, indeed, amazing
to contemplate so vast a vacuity.
One thinks of the interstellar spaces,
of the colossal reaches of the now
mythical ether. Nearly the whole of
Europe could be lost in that stupen-
dous region of worn-out farms, shod-
dy cities and paralyzed cerebrums . .
. it is almost as sterile, artistically,
intellectually, culturally, as the Sa-
hara Desert.
"There are single acres of Eu-
rope 'that house more first-rate men
than all the states south of the
Potomac . . . If the whole of the late
Confederacy were to be engulfed by
a tidal/wave tomorrow, the effect

upon the civilized minority of men in
the world would be little greater than
that of a flood on the Yangtse-
That from a man who was
almost revered by other writers as
being the epitome of writers.
Today, Mencken's words would
more aptly describe his native Balti-
more than they would the Soua
Oboe players are not rare here, tW
are metaphysicians. The south is now
the center of things scientific. The
South is strong and vibrant while
Europe is still relying on its decaying
past for greatness. The same seems
to be holding true for Baltimore and
surrounding cities, as they seem to
be in danger of being engulfed by the
tidal wave of complacency and decay
while the South is growing and
vibrant. Those "worn-out farms" of
the South are now feeding much of
the world.
Mencken and his cronies were
advertising their prejudice against
the South with such words while they
were labeling the South as the
champion of prejudice.

tuatuions, only are described in terms
mmercial of the amount of nutrients they
gnificant contain. For example, a 100-
ee major pound bag of a 6-8-6 fertilizer
would contain six pounds of a
variety ot nitrogen compound, eight
he major pounds of phosphorus in the
upply are form of phosphoric acid, and
s, and po- six pounds of a potassium
compound called potash.
SThe type of fertilizer you
',a need depends quite a bit on the
kind of soil you have. Your
real objective is to provide
^ only those plant nutrients that
S your plant dosen't already
have in amounts large enough
for vegetable production.
For the sandy soils that are
so common in Florida, we
usually recommend a 10-10-10
or 13-13-13. For muck amd
peat soils, which are already
t. high in organic matter, we
recommended something like
, an 0-12-20. If the soil in your
Garden isn't typical of either
of these common soil types,
you should probably have your
soil analyzed. Then you can
choose a fertilizer best suited
to your needs.
- For sandy soils, and other
soils with low nitrogen, you'll
need between two and five
pounds of fertilizer for every
100 square feet of garden. On
organic soils, you'll need one
or two pounds of fertilizer per
100 square feet.
You should divide the a-
mount of fertilizer called for
into two or three applications.
S About half should be broad-
Scast in the garden a week or
two before planting. The rest
ut 1-1/2 should be applied in shallow
sauce over furrows on both sides of the
ed crust; seed rows at planning time.
2 table- The furrows should be about
desired ad- six inches apart, and only two

baking the fertilizer evenly in the
or until furrows, andthenfillwith soil.

place in each furrow will vary
lour according to the distance
quick or between seed rows. With
uncooked narrow rows, you'll have more

apply the right amount for
your garden, and spread it
evenly through the furrows.

Your Best Choice

1. To work for 100 percent registration of every person
eligible to vote in Gulf County;
2. To obtain authorization to take the voting machines
into both high schools for the purpose of
familiarizing students with their operation. Let's
get our young people included in the democratic pro-
cesses right away. Our young people need to be pro-
perly educated to execute that great American her-
itage-the freedom of the ballot;
3. I will also take the registration books to outlying
areas at designated times to make it easier for
everyone to be able to register;
4. To operate the office of Supervisor of Elections
within the budget as approved by our county com-
5. The needs of the handicapped and elderly are
among my greatest concerns and I will do every-
thing to make voting as easy as possible for them.

I want to take this opportunity to personally

thank the people of Gulf County for their

Tremendous show of support during the

September 9 Primary. Because of this over-

whelming support, I am once again able to

serve you for another two years in Talla-

I hassee. I pledge to continue to be diligent

in my efforts as State Representative and

will work to insure that the people of the Ninth District have

a strong voice for Northwest Florida in the House of Repre-

sentatives. Again, a hardy "THANK YOU" to everyone; and,

rest assured that I will continue to KEEP ON WORKING FOR

YOU here and in Tallahassee.

By Vera Burge
As a free people and Ameri-
cans, we must fight for and
demand, that our moral and
Christian teaching be put back
into business and schools.
When America won its inde-
pendence, religion and morals
accounted for more than 90
percent, by the middle twent-
ies it was only 6 percent.
We need to teach our
children the greatness of our
country, the greatness of the
ones who fought and died, to
make it so.
I am so thankful to Almighty
God for my Great Great Great
Grandfather, Thomas Tabb,
who was present when Patrick
Henry shook his fist in the
face of King George III and
said, "Is life so dear, or peace
so sweet, as to be purchased at
the price of chains or slavery,
forbid it Almighty God! I
know not what course others
may take, but as for me
give me liberty or give me
death." This same Thomas
Tabb, I have been told, was
present during the signing of
the Declaration of Indepen-
dence. How proud I am that
his blood flows through my
Every time I hear the
National Anthem or the pass-
ing of the Flag, I get a lumpin

he was surrounded and the

and the words of Nathan Hale:
"I regret that I have but one
life to give for my country."
Another great American,
Booker T. Washington, born in
poverty, raised in hate and
prejudices, said,"I will permit
no man to narrow, or degrade.

my soul, by making me hate
Another great American we
all know.about in our time was
"Chappie" James, a Four
Star General, and many more.
In President Kennedy's
speech in Dallas, Texas, on
the day of his assassination.
One line in his speech he said,
"Except the Lord keep the
city, the watchman waketh
but in vain."
William Pitt said, "If God
does not rule the affairs of
man, then tyrants will. "If we
had not but a few Americans
like these men, when they are
called upon to defend and
protect our country, we would
not hear the protest, "Hell no
we won't go." It's been told
that poverty breeds crime.
That is one of satan's big lies.
Up until 1940 we had come
through a depression and
poverty, the worst in our
history, yet we had nothing
like the crime rate we have
today. Crime has to do with
character. We teach our child-
ren to abide by the law, or
break the law. Oh, I know one
will go astray now and then,

no matter how good he was
taught, but more than likely
he will come back some day
and help others to do so. A lot
of people use the excuse, "I
have no future, nothing to live
for, we live in poverty and
ghettos so what difference
does it make, so if we want to
steal, destroy property, com-
mit crimes, so what, we're
doing our thing.
ut" t ,dob your' thing prop-
erly, you have to teach and
love your children for they are
our only hope for solving our
problems in days to come. The
fight is hard, it's long, it's
heartbreaking, in these times.
But stand tall, and say I tried,
God knows I did.
I lived in a shack when I was
a child, you could lay in bed at
night and see the stars shine
through the roof. Did I have
hatred in my heart or think I
was poor? Indeed not! I could
lay and watch the handiwork
and beauty of God. No envy or
hate for anyone, I wasn't poor,
I was rich.
Another ancestor of mine,
the most pious and celebrated
Catholic priest, Father John


My most heartfelt thanks go out to all of the
sincere friends and supporters who helped during my
campaign. Hopefully, there were enough votes cast in
my behalf to have impact where certain vital issues
are concerned. I want to encourage everyone to stay
involved and work within our system to make Gulf
County a better home for all.

Commissioner Leo Kennedy was
opposed to awarding the contract to
Florida Asphalt in light of the problems
with their recent work. "I'd rather pay
a little more for the paving and get a
good job", Kennedy said, and later
voted "No" when the remainder of the

surveys which don't coincide with
established lot lines in the Oak Grove
Stutzman said he had recently
purchased some property in Oak Grove
and had a survey done on it to establish
his property lines. Stutzman reported,
"My survey shows an alleyway behind
my property which is encroaching on
my land by seven and a half feet".
Stutzman asked the Board for sugges-
tions as to what could be done about the
situation. "My property is too small to
ignore the seven and a half feet off the
rear side", he said.
The Commission said they had
experienced trouble with proper des-
criptions of property in the area in
question for many years and had only
two alternatives. These alternatives
were to abandon the alley, giving the
property to the adjoining property
owners and another was to re-survey,
locate the proper line and open the
alley in its proper location.
Both these solutions posed a
problem, since Stutzman's survey
showed one of the affected property
owners, Howard Neel had a house
which was sitting partially in the
location where the new survey had
located the alley.
Neel said, "I've lived there for 15

years and I don't want to move my

that he not be forced to lose seven and a

SIost Taylor county Friday Night

Sharks Roll Up 500 Yards

In 33-6 Defeat of Havana

Port St. Joe had more
fans in the stands than did
host Havana last Friday
night, as the Sharks rolled
up over 500 yards of offense
against the Gladiators, to
pound out a decisive 33-6
win, their second straight of
the young season.
The Sharks piled up 331
yards on the hard running of
Rozelle Jenkins and Ashley
Abrams, just as they did
last week. This week, they
added a third prong to the
running attack, with Chuck
Stephens rambling for 70
yards and one touchdown in
the game.
The Sharks, who passed
only five times against Mon-
ticello, went to the air eight
times Friday night, connect-
ing on four of the attempts
for 171 yards and two touch-
downs to add dimension to

Kip Altstaetter, left, hauls in

a good gain. In the bottom

-Wewahitchka's state eighth
ranked Gators turned their
race horses loose again for the
second week in a row and piled
up 257 yards on the ground in a
25-7 win over the Cottondale
Hornets last Friday.
After a defensive first per-
iod, the Gators made their
own breaks in the second half
and pushed two TD's across
the goal line.
The Gators forced a Cotton-
dale fumble on the Hornet 23
yard line and Steve Stripling
carried the ball over for the
Gators' first score in three
plays. The kick for the extra
point went wide.
water in the second period,
S Gators made another
break when end Johnny Nob-
les intercepted a Hornet pass
on the Cottondale side of the 50
yard line. Tim Price got loose
and romped toward the goal
line, but was caught on the
two. On the next play, Tim
Taunton squirmed across the
goal line, fumbled the ball and
recovered his own fumble for
the TD. Again the extra point
point kick by Taunton was
good and the Gators went into
the half-time rest period with
a 13-0 lead.
-The Gators came back in the
second half ready for action.
On their first possession of the
ball, fullback Harold Williams
moved the ball into Hornet
territory and Tim Price gal-
loped 44 yards for the score.
Taunton's kick for the extra
point failed.
:With just over three minutes
left in the third stanza, the
Gators again put the ball
across for a score when
Harold Williams bulled over
Mm three yards out. Taun-
MB's kick for the extra point
was wide.
It looked like the Gators
would add more insurance on

the scoreboard in the final
quarter when Stripling picked
off a Cottondale pass. But the
Hornets held and the Gators
had to give up the ball.
Fighting to get on the board,
the Hornets' Glenn Stephan-
son gave his team a small
glimmer of hope to score when
he got loose at his own 22 yard
line and ran 48 yards to put the
Hornets deep in Gator coun-
try. Darrell White squirted
through the line on the next
two plays to put the ball inside
the 10 yard line before Quina
Gray went in for the Hornets'
only TD of the evening. The
extra point attempt was good

their hard-running attack.
Quarterback Chris Adkison
opened up the scoring attack
mid-way in the first period,
when he hit end Jim Hamby
with a 21 yard pass to put
the Sharks on the board with
six points. David Bray kick-
ed the extra point. Later in
the period, the Gladiators
answered the touchdown
with a three yard run by
Anthony Simmons, but the
extra point was no good, as
was any further Havana ef-
fort to put points on the
The Sharks scored twice in

quarter, both scores coming

Referee flags had started
flying fast and furious by
the second period, and the
Sharks had a tough time of
it, making any headway
against the Havana defense
and the flags of the officials.
Mid-way in the period, the
Sharks had worked their
way to the Havana 35, but
had a fourth and three situa-
tion. Adkison tossed a short
pass to the right side to
Rozelle Jenkins and Jenkins
picked his way for 30 yards
to the goal line for the
Sharks' second TD. Bray
kicked the extra point to
give the Sharks a 14-6 lead
which was never threatened
for the rest of the game.
Two minutes later, Ashley
Abrams had intercepted a
Havana pass at mid-field

and the Sharks were off on
a scoring jaunt again. On
the first play from scrim-
mage, Chuck Stephens burst
through the right side of the
line and took an angular
path toward the goal line,
making it all the way to the
Havana 10 before he was
dropped. Jenkins punched
the ball to the four and then
Stephens went over the mid-
dle for the TD. Bray's kick
was blocked and the Sharks
took a 20-6 lead into the
half-time period.
Neither team could move
in the third period, which
saw four 15 yard penalties
being assessed (three of
them against the Sharks);
three fumbles (two by the

Gladiators) and a Shark in-
terception by Ashley Ab-
rams and a fumble recovery
by Jim Hamby to repeatedly
stop the Gladiators, who
were definitely getting the
penalty breaks in the third
As the fourth period began
the Gladiators had the ball
deep in their own territory.
After three downs they had
to punt from the 15 yard line
and booted the ball to just
beyond mid-field. Rozelle
Jenkins fielded the punt and
rambled up the side-lines to
the end zone, but again the
referees stepped in and cal-
led the Sharks for holding,
nullifying the score.

penalty in the drive, the

of Firestone's best selling tires during the 1970s.

Sharks worked the ball from
the Havana 38 to the five in
eight plays before Ashley
Abrams dived over the mid-
dle for the TD. Bray's kick
was good and the Sharks
had a 27-6 bulge with 5:43
left in the game.
On Havana's first play
after the kick-off, Tim Stutz-
man pounced on a Gladiator
fumble and the Sharks were
again on the march from the
Havana 32. Five plays later,
with Ashley Abrams at the
quarterback position, Ab-
rams hit Kip Altstaetter
with a 25 yard pass and
Altstaetter carried it in for the
Sharks' last score of the
game. A bad snap from
center made the attempt for
the extra point no good.

Tomorrow night, the
Sharks will host the Taylor
High Tigers from Perry here
in Shark stadium. The

years back and won every
one of them. Friday night

Military Construction Bill

I am pleased that the
House overwhelmingly
passed the fiscal year 1981
Department of Defense
Military Construction
Authorization Act
(MILCON). The final House
vote of 337 to 22 is a re-
sounding approval of this
much needed legislation.
The MILCON bill pro-
vides authorization for $5.54
billion for United States
military construction both
here in the U.S. and at our
bases abroad. Major items in-
cluded in this important bill
include: (1) $247 million for
Indian Ocean basing
facilities; (2) $656 million for
major construction at our
European bases; (3) $249
million for energy conserva-
tion and pollution abatement
projects; (4) $817 million for
health care, housing and
community facilities; (5) $159
million for construction of
military family housing; and
(6) $3 million to start con-
struction of a binary chemical
munitions production facility
at Pine Bluff Arsenal, Arkan-
This last authorization,
the binary munitions produc-
tion facility, caused con-
siderable controversy and
was, in fact, the only item at-
tacked by liberal members of
the House. As I have noted to
you before in this column,
Sthe current intelligence from
Afghanistan and the Soviet
Union is that the Soviets,
despite treaties with the U.S.
to the contrary, have pushed
ahead with research, develop-
ment, and testing of chemical
weapons. In Afghanistan
they have used these weapons
on the rebel forces. I believe
that we must, therefore,
move ahead with this
research, development,
testing, and production as
rapidly as possible. Although
an amendment to delete this
authorization for construc-
tion was offered, it was
subsequently withdrawn
prior to a vote.
As a member of the
House Committee on Armed
Services, Subcommittee on
Installations and Facilities
(MILCON), I am proud of
this fine bill. This authoriza-
tion provides for many need-

ed projects to enable our
forces to better perform their
duties both here and abroad.
Furthermore, it provides for
a number of key projects at
the fine military facilities
located here in Northwest
Florida. Projects at NAS
Pensacola, NAS Whiting
Field, Eglin AFB, Tyndall
AFB, and Eglin AFB-
Auxiliary Field #3, will insure
the continued stability of
these facilities. Not to be
forgotten is the Naval
Coastal Systems Center at
Panama City where the Navy
Diving School has recently
opened. Both the Bachelor
Officers Quarters (BOQ) and
the Bachelor Enlisted
Quarters (BEQ) will open in
November to aid in this in-
creased base utilization.
Aging Conference
Florida, this week, is.
hosting the first State Con-
ference of the White House
Conference on Aging. As the
home of the largest percent-
age of older persons in any
state, Florida is an excellent
place to begin the con-
ferences. I am excited about
the work of these conferences
and look forward to review-
ing their recommendations.
Indeed, one of every six
Floridians is age 65 or older
and the needs and problems
of this group must be ade-
quately addressed.
Broccoli Casserole
This week Nancy selected
a recipe by Mrs. Dan Daniel,
wife of a Representative from
Virginia. Dan and I serve
together on the House Armed
Services Committee. He is a
good friend and has been
most helpful to me and the
First District of Florida.
2 10 ounce packages
chopped broccoli
I can mushroom soup
3 eggs, well beaten
2 cups grated sharp cheese
1 cup mayonnaise
4 tablespoons chopped
V4 teaspoon pepper
cracker crumbs
Cook broccoli according to
directions on package. Drain
and mash. Mix all ingredients
except crumbs together, pour
into casserole. Sprinkle with
cracker crumbs and bake for
45 minutes at 350'. May be
frozen. Makes 8 servings.

Exceeding Speed Limit - FHP

Effective October 1, drivers
exceeding Florida's 55 mph
speed limit by more than 10
mph will have to pay larger
fines said the Florida High-
way Patrol this week.
Drivers exceeding the 55

from 66 to 79 mph must pay an
additional $25. Those drivers
exceeding the 55 speed limit
by driving 80 mph or more will
have to pay an additional $50

mph will cost speeders $25,

driving 66 to 79 mph will cost
$50 and driving over 80 mph
will cost $75. Speeders
charged with speeding in
excess of 25 mph over the
speed limit must appear in
person before the court."
The surcharge must be paid
by all drivers cited for exceed-

"The well known phrase,
'Drive 55 and save' will have
more meaning after October
I," concluded Beach.
