ed in the way it was. The
Commission felt there was too

In the state as. a whole,

Garrison brought Fred Stan-
berry, division director of the
Wildlife Service; Dr. Allen
Egbert, assistant director and
Bill Bartush, regional wildlife
service biologist, to explain
why the doe season was held in
Florida and in Gulf County.

deer in the Parker reserve and
'as a result, they were diseased
and low in weight. Bartush
said the disease problem was
much like the common cold.
Bartush said the disease
was not harmful to humans
and was more a nutritional
disease than it was from any
other cause. "A healthy deer
could fight off this small
problem with natural body
defenses", Bartush said.-
Bartush said the present
deer herd ranges from one
dedr to 25 or 30 acres. He said
the hunt proved the deer to be
in poor physical condition and
said, "I think we did them as

Gates Calls for Grand Jury Investigation of Lakes
Says He Feels Govenor Doesn't Know How Situation Was Handled
Jerry Gates, Secretary-Treasurer
of the Dead Lakes Water Board, this
week called for a state-wide Grand
Jury investigation of the manner of
appointment of Harland 0. Pridgeon,-
William Linton and Forest A. Revell
to the board and the removal of Jim
Bozeman, Jerry Kelly and Clayton
Shiver from the board at the end of
their one-year term.
In a four and a half page letter to
The Star Tuesday at noon, Gates out-
lined his reasons for thinking a state-
wide grand jury investigation of the
situation is mandatory and necessary.
(Gates' letter will be published in
next weeks's issue of The Star. Its
length and time of arrival in the office
made it impossible to use the letter in
this week's issue-Ed.)
In his letter, Gates hits at irreg-
ularities in the removal of the three
members and replacing them with
new ones. He says queries made as to
why the change was made were either
not answered or answers given which
were later denied by other per-
sonalities involved in the matter.
Gates said direct questions asked
as to why certain parties had recom-
mended the change were answered
with denials and placing the blame on
other parties, who subsequently
denied they had anything to do with
Gates' letter also asks the ques-
tion as to why three members of the
board were 'replaced and the other
two left seated, .when all terms ter-
minated at the same time.
In the letter, the official of the
Dead Lakes board raises questions
about the construction of the dam in
the first place, land deals adjacent to
the. dam and lake property and points
out the involvement of relatives with
the construction of the darning the first
place and the subsequent sales of
WHO MADE APPOINTMENTS?
Gates asks the question, in his let-
ter: "What I, and a lot of other people,
would like to know is who did recom-
mend these parties be nominated to
replace the current members and why
were only three of.the five members
replaced, when all terms expired at
the same time."
The letter proceeds to point out
that Gates does not believe the Gover-
nor knows about all this. The appoint-
ments come .from the Governor's of-
fice, but usually they are made by an
aide on the recommendation or con-
currence of local supporters of the
governor who happens to be in office.
Gates stated, "I have tried to tell
him (the Governor) without success,
and therefore I have no alternative,
based on these connections, both
family, financial arid involvement
with the construction of the dam, but
to ask Attorney General Jim Smith,
the highest ranking law officer in this
state to put this before the State-wide
Grand Jury for investigation.".
In the meantime, Gates intends to
ask the Governor to remove the re-
cently appointed members from the
District and re-appoint those mem-
bers just removed. "Those members
have received undue criticism and un-
just removal from office,,' Gates con-
Gates letter continued to report.
that one of the first things the ousted
board did when taking office was to
call on the Game and Fresh Water
Fish Com'nission, Department of En-
vironmental Regulation and Depart-
ment of Natural Resources, re-
questing they provide the District
with any studies of the lake conducted
by their agency within' the past 10
According to the letter, the
records verify the need for a draw
down of the lakes and noted that an ef-
fective drawdown on the Dead Lakes
apparently cannot be accomplished
through the existing structure. The
reports recommended further engi-
neering and hydrological studies be
conducted to determine the altera-
tions necessary to allow a maximum
drawdown of the Dead Lakes water
The committee attempted to do
this this past summer, but a subse-
quent court ruling, resulting from a
lawsuit ordered the gates replaced,
, with only one of four remaining open.
Gates' letter stated the reports
recommended leaving the drawdown
gates in an open position.
Gates cites reports of what he
termed a most interesting statistic.
He cited a report from the state
departments which reported a census
of 444 shellcracker arid 72 largemouth
bass per acre in the Dead Lakes in
1972 and only 62 shellcracker and 40
largemouth bass per acre in the lakes
The letter says a biologist by the
name of Robert L. Lazor, a biologist
with the Florida Department of
Natural Resources, stated that an im-
pounded reservoir begins to die, caus-
ing aquatic growth to proliferate and
silt to accumulate in the bottom. The
biologist said game fish need hard
sandy bottoms to fan out a bed for
spawning. Silt in the bottom of a body
of water prevents this natural action
and the species dies out.
CALLS FOR ASSISTANCE
In closing his letter, Gates calls
on the Governor of Florida, besides
restoring the past members to their
respective positions, to immediately
call on the Department of Environ-
mental Regulation to assist the Dead
Lakes Water Management District in
answering any questions that anyone
may still have about the Dead Lakes.
Gates also expresses doubt that a
public hearing, scheduled to be held
within 90 days on the question of
whether or not to allow removal of the
dam, will ever be held. Gates points
out the hearing was recommended by
the Northwest Florida Water Manage-
ment District because there were ob-
jections to the recommendation of
their staff that the dam be removed.
Gates says: "It is my opinion the
hearings will never occur if the newly
appointed members of the Dead
Lakes Water Management District
are allowed to remain in office."

An article in this month's
_. Reader's Digest has a provocative
title. On page 181 of the February
S issue, we find the title, "How To

z-: is the title provocative, but the
entire article is loaded for bear, as it
.. discusses what is wrong with our
schools and why they aren't teach-
ing Jake and Cassandra .what you
are sending them to school to learn.
We believe the soft spots in the
article as being in our public schools
are very real and there will be no
satisfaction of the parent' with an
educated child coming out of the
public schools, until some, all or
most of these changes are made.
The article sings the priases of
,. private schools, but we're going to
take that with a grain of salt while
we are digesting the meat of the
article. True the private schools do a
-creditable job, but they leave a lot
undone, too. A kid gets a lot of

-Some of the fine points taken
froni' the private school as being
some of: the reasons the students
fare better than the average public
school student lies in the matter of
control over the,student.
In the private school, the
teacher has more control over class
discipline than he or 'she is allowed
in the public school. The article hits
hard at this point and gives it a great
deal of credit for the better
performance of one school over
another. Another plus is that a
private school can: simply fire an
incompetent teacher,. while a public
school has to go through an act of
Congress, so to speak.
One thing the article points out
money is not the answer. In
almost every case, private schools
are not as generously funded as
public schools 'aftd private' school
teachers do not earn as much money
as public school teachers; More
money does not necessarily pur-

Money told Daniels this wasn't
so. "We have an agreement
with Apalachicola Northern
Railroad to lower a culvert
under their tracks which
alleviate the problem, but will
not solve it completely".,
Both Money and Branch
pointed out it would take many
thousands of dollars to com-
pletely solve the problem.
When the discussion finally
wound down, Fleming sum-
med up the position of the
black delegation by hitting at'
the record of the constitutional
officers in their hiring record
of blacks. "It's wrong", he
said. "Our children should be
given a chance. We just want
you to do what you promised."
Branch advised the delega-
tion the Commission adver-
tises to fill every position it
has open. He then advised the
group to go back to the
constitutional officers and en-
list their help in future hiring 4
of blacks in office positions.
In defense of the officers,
there hasn't been much hiring
of anybody in'any offices in
the last few years.

tioned by the group why her
office had not added a position
to fill the vacancy left by
retired tax Collector Harland
Pridgeon. Taylor said she has
not hired anyone since she
took office. "All my employ-
ees have been in the office a
long time. The money former-
ly used to pay Pridgeon's
salary has gone to absorb
some of the cost increases for
running the office over the
past few years."
With Fleming trying to quiet
him down, Marion Daniels got
into the discussion saying,
"Ya'll already know what:
you're doing wrong. You don't
want to give us a fair shake.
You need to try to work with
blacks. You don't want to treat
us right because we're black".
Daniels went on to charge

Expected.500 Season This Year
Coach Belin Pleased
At Team's Record
"I figured that if we had a .500 season this
year, we would have done well", head
basketball coach, Jim Belin, told the Rotary
Club last Thursday.
Speaking to the Rotary Club on the heels of
taking the Gulf Coast Conference champion-
ship in a tournament held in Blountstown,
Belin said Port St. Joe should have some good
basketball for the next two or three years.
"We have a very good JV team, also,", Belin
said. "When we picked the boys for the
varsity this year, we just lined up all the boys
in the program and took the tallest ones for
the varsity. They were all about equally as
good in ability."
Belin contributed the young team's success
this year to good foul shooting, hustle and a
The head coach said the team is currently
shooting foul shots at a 70 percent clip. "This
Shas won a lot of games for us this year. When
a team fouls us, they are usually giving us a
point or two. We get the foul points".
Belin said the team is composed of workers.
"I expect that with their current success arid
the attention they are getting, there are a few
heads beginning to get a little big. That's only
natural. Rut these young kids hustle and work
andwhen we have togo to our bench, we can
keep things going because we have a capable
The three year coach pointed out that there
' are many good teams in the Panhandle this
year. "There are about 16 teams in' the.
Northwest Florida region which are within'
about'four points of each other", he said. "It's
going to be a tight race in the Panhandle this
In introducing his team, which is made up
of two freshmen, two sophomores and one
senior, coach Belin said freshman Doug
Robinson "is going to be the first really big
man I've 'ever coached. : A 14-year-old
freshman, Robinson now stands at 6'3" and
plays regularly on the first string.
Josh Jenkins, another freshman, is des-
cribed by Belin as being his only inside threat,
and a good one. "He can play anything",
Durey Cadwell, a sophomore, is the team's
leading scorer. "He scored 100 percent of his.
attempts in Blountstowni Saturday night",
Belin said. He described Cadwell as a player
who makes something happens when he
m oves. .
, Michael Pittman, the, other sophomore, is
the runt of the litter, but the quick speedster
which makes the team hum. "Pittman is one
of our most valuable assets", Belin said.
Marty Russ, the "old man" of the squad, is.
also the field general. "He keeps the team .
under control and the defense off balance-with
his long shots", the coach pointed out.
The- trong bench, of which Belin places so
much confidence, is' made up of Terry'
Woullard, Darin Thomas,' Charles& Byrd,
Robert Poole and Danny Givens. "They can
go in at any time and keep things going for
us", Belin said.

SUNGLASSES HAVE A
0. Besides being fashionable,
do sunglasses really pro-
tect your eyes?
A Yes Quality glass or plastic
sunglasses filter out excess
ultraviolet rays that the nat-
ural lens can nol handle
Constant exposure to ex-
cessive radiation from the
sun may cause eye irrita-
*tions and, in some cases,
progressive damage. For
many people, reducing light
and glare during outdoor
activities prevents tearing
and squinting. Wearing sun-
glasses on bright days also
makes it easier for eyes to
adapt: to the darkness 'of
Q. Is sunglass protection im-,
* portant for people on medi-
A. It has been found that pa-
tients using oral contracep-
tives and those taking tetra-
cyclines for acne and other
skin ,conditions have a
greater sensitivity to the
sun's rays. To prevent
squinting and tearing, it is
generally suggested that
these patients wear
sunglasses when they are
0. I justtid a cataract remov-
ed. Are. sunglasses recom-
A. Yes. Since the natural lens
which filters out ultraviolet
rays is no longer there, the
retina, so vital to sight,
should be protected from
direct ultraviolet radiation
when you are In sunlight.

I have long been concerned
about a national problem which,
if not addressed soon, will result,
in our loss of leadership in the
high-stakes high technology
Education throughout the
school, system is at the' center
of. the problem, with specific
emphasis on training more
teachers and encouraging them
to remain in classrooms.
Particularly critical is the
declining number of Americans
who are pursuing advanced
degrees in the fields of science.
.1 was extremely pleased
when President Reagan in his
:State of the" Union Speech
Sr cognized this problem and,
pledged his administration to
finding solutions. .
During the last session of'
Congress I sponsored the
* "Engineering and Science Man-
Spower Act of 1982" which was
approved by the Committee on
Science and Technology but
h nevr got to' the House floor.
'I have re-introduced a new
version of that bill which still

five years to be administered by
the National Science Founda-
Stion, and which will be
distributed to institutions which
either match the funds
themselves or who can arrange
for businesses to match the
The bill also clearly describes
the nation's goal of achieving a
continuing level of scientific and
technological excellence and
establishes a fund to improve
critical instrumentation in our
As President Reagan said in
his State of the Union Message:
"We Americans are still the
world's technological leader in
most fields. We must keep that
edge, and to do so we need to
begin renewing the basics start-
-ing with our educational
system. While we grew compla-
cent, others have acted.
"Japan, with a population
only about half the size of ours,
graduates from its universities
more engineers than we do."
In testimony before the
Committee on Educationr and

President's message, I offered
my support for a bill currently

complements that which I have
