PORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA 32456 t THURSDAY, OCTOBER 28, 1982
Even In Gulf ... Elephant and Donkey Will Battle
For Northwest Florida "Democrat coun-
try", having a ballot with five state races on it in
a general election is a rare thing. To generate
as much interest as the several questions have
over the past few days is even more rare.
Voters of the redneck section of Florida will
trek to the polls with the rest of the nation on
Tuesday of next week to select a governor for the
state, a U.S. Senator, a U.S. Representative, a
Secretary of State and a Commissioner of
Doyle Conner as the Commissioner of
Agriculture and George Firestone as Secretary
of State are probably the only cabinet members
with any longevity in the State of Florida who
have ever had Republican opposition in a
What makes this election, which would be
traditionally of not much interest, .is that it
contains the names of two northwest Florida
men who are well-known in the Panhandle,
particularly among the agricultural circles
Seeking the position of Governor will be Bob
Graham who is accepted as governor of Florida
in these parts because he has one of the
Panhandle's favorite sons. Wayne Mixson as his
Lt. Governor running partner They will meet
Republican Skip Bhaalis and Leo Callahan
George Firestone, who, like other Secretarys
of State before him, has almost lived in
anonymity in his pbst, faces a Republican
opponent in Jim Smith Doyle Conner, the
long-time Commissioiler of Agriculture will be
opposed by Barbard Lindsey.

Gulf County electors will also have three
amendments to the state constitution to decide
upon in their voting Tuesday The amendments
would allow former Legislators to become
lobbyists immediately after leaving office:
would align Florida's search and seizure laws
more in line with federal guidelines (Florida's
are now more strict) and; would allow the
holding of criminals without release if they
would be a menace to society if released while
See the sample ballot on page 13 of this issue
for a full text of how these amendments will be
included on the ballot.
Four judges from the District Court of
Appeal will also be on the ballot, giving the
people a chance to vote them out of office if they
desire. You do not vote for judges; you vote as to
whether or not you wish to retain them for
another term. On the ballot are Judges Richard
W. Ervin, Ill. Robert P. Smith, James E. Joanos
and Ford L. Thompson.
Voting times and precinct voting places will
be the same as for the two primary elections in
September and October.

Trick or Treat Nights
SIn:a joint agreement this week, law
enforcement officials of the Gulf County
Sheriff's Department and the Port St. Joe
Police Department have declared Satur-
day night an official "Trick or Treat"
night for Hallowe'erin i the Port St. Joe
'area and the Beaches.
"Itis not our desire to tell people when
to trick or treat, but if it can all be done in
one night, then we can concentrate our
patrol for protection of the 'Little Goblins'
safety", Sheriff Murphy said.
Murphy said leaders in the Wewa-
hitchka area had agreed to have the trick
or treat activities on Friday night, so there
can be a concentration of law enforcement
officers in each end of the county on the
night when so many small children will be
on the street after dark.
"We're not looking for or expecting
any unusual happenings on these nights,
but with small children on the streets when
it isn't all that easy for the driver of
automobiles to see, you' can't be too
careful", Sheriff Murphy said.
Sheriff Murphy said Chief Roy Robin-
son, Mayor Frank Pate, Chief Jonathan
Glass and Mayor Robert Nations, Jr., feel
the designated period for the Hallowe'en
fun will help make it safer for everyone.
Good tips for the trick or treaters are:,
first and foremost, watch out for vehicles
on the streets and highways. Trick or treat
only in a neighborhood you are familiar
with. Do not take treats from strangers.
Destroy or turn over to parents all treats
that have been opened. Parents should
inspect all treats prior to consumption,
People who welcome trick or treaters are
urged to leave their porch lights on.

Be On Alert for Small
Children In the Streets
The Florida Highway Patrol
has asked parents and drivers
to be especially alert for small
children in the streets on
Lt Colonel Roger C Collar,
acting director of the Patrol
said, "Many children, some
dressed in dark costumes and
masks, will be out after dark
and all drivers should be on
the lookout for them "
According to Patrol records,
there were 7,112 pedestrians
killed or injured in 1981. Of
those killed. ll1 were under 15
years of age and of those
injured, 1.769 were under 15.
Some tips from the Patrol
for a safe Halloween are: Try
to trick-or-treat when it is still
light outside; Wear a costume
that makes it easy for you to
walk, see, and be seen;
'If you must go out at night,
make certain that your cos-
tume is light colored; Carry a
flashlight so you can see and
be seen easily; Use reflective
tape on your costume so
people driving cars can see
A face mask will keep you
from seeing well. Take off
your mask before you cross a
street. In fact, why not. use
makeup instead of a mask?
Lt. Colonel Collar concluded
by urging drivers to look out
for the fun loving "spooks"

ALSO OF IMPORTANCE on Tues-
day are three Constitutional Amend-.
ments we must approve or disapprove.
Constitutional Amendments usual-
ly get scant attention on Florida ballots
and as a consequence, there are some
bad amendments put on the Constitu-
tion, simply because of apathy and little
to no knowledge about the matters
being voted on.
Question Number one under the
proposed amendment section on the
ballot, would allow former legislators
to seek employment as lobbyists in the
Legislature after they leave the Legis-
lature, if they file full public disclosure
of their financial interests.
There are laws which now cover
this situation which are entirely
adequate to give the people some
protection from favoritism. Passage of
this amendment would give all former
Legislators, after they file a financial
disclosure, access to the lobbying
process without going through the
waiting period as now proscribed by
I think the present procedure for
former Legislators serving as lobbyists
better serves the needs of Florida.
Questions two and three are law
enforcement amendments and have
probably received more publicity than
Amendment two would allow cer-
tain evidence to be admissable in court
which is not now admissable. The
amendment brings the admissable
evidence allowances more in line with
federal court guidelines. At present,
Florida courts will not accept certain
evidence admissable in federal court. A
good example is state law will not allow
recordings from wire taps properly
taken, to be admitted as evidence in
court. Federal law will allow the tap
conversations to be used to corraborate
The third amendment is a good
amendment, but at present doesn't
have the proper legislation tb back it up
The amendment would make it
possible for the courts to keep a
suspected criminal off the streets if it is
deemed the public would be endanger-
ed by releasing him on bail or other
I won't go so far as to endorse these
two amendments, but at least you will
know a little about what they are about.

boundless potential of the
Nov. 11 is Veterans Day; a
-day set-aside by the nation to
honor those who have served
their country in uniform. It is
also the day on which the first
operational mission of the
Space Transportation System,

scheduled for launch.

As a veteran-myself of the
Korean Conflict I relate deeply
to the needs of veterans not
only who served with me but

sensitivity to those who served'
in Viet Nam and have istllered
