.year as Medical Examiner for the 14th Judicial Circuit by the
State Medical Examiners Commission, Gulf County is still
making preparations to defend a suit the Doctor filed against
Sthe county last Wednesday afternoon, according to County
. Attorney William J. Rish.
.. Rish said yesterday the county was proceeding as if
nothing had happened in preparation of their defense that the
county owed the medical Examiner some $10,000 for
autopsies and interest, which Dr. Sapala claimed was due his
Dr. Sapalawas, in effect, fired Monday when the Medical
Examiners Commission accepted his resignation from the
14th Circuit office and failed to appoint him 'as Medical
A Examiner of Bay County. ,
Dr. Sapala has been in a running battle with Gulf County
officials since last year, when he first began running into
resistance from' Gulf county for doing what Gulf officials
termed "too many" autopsies and going up drastically on the
prices he charged for examinations.
Without notice to Gulf county, which is one of the counties
in the 14th Judicial Circiut,Dr. Sapala went to a price of $450
for, an autopsy, after Gulf had been paying $150 for the
service. Gulf, like other small counties in the circuit, was
allocated a sum of money each year by the State of Florida
,to pay for autopsies required by the State. Gulf' county had
been giving all of this money to the Medical Examiners office
for operation expenses. In the past, this sum had more than
covered Gulf county's need for the services of the office.
But, that was before Dr. Sapala's increase in charges.
Attorney Rish said Dr. Sapala's suit against Gulf county
has been filed abeen filed as an individual and not in his capacity as
medical Examiner. "For this reason, we are proceeding as if
.he suit was still a valid instrument, even though Dr. Sapala
i no longer the Medical Examiner.'.'
Rish says the county has 20 days to answer the suit which

county owes for the services of his office and have not paid.

It's that time of the year again.
Saturday night, it will be necessary that you set the
hands on your clock ahead by an hour before you go to
bed, if you expect to be in time with the rest of the nation
on Sunday morning.
Saturday night is the time for reverting back to
Daylight Saving Time for the remainder of the summer .
Changing to Daylight Saving Time has become a
ritual with us now, on the last Sunday of the month oft
April. The time officially changes at 2:00 a.m., on
Sunday, but not too many people wait up to change their
clocks at the official hour.
So prepare to live an hour faster each day until
October, when the time will change back that hour on the'

SThe Birthday Party
S. BY SHAD PHANTRY
The one thing that will lead
men astray quicker and more
often than any other is, of
course, women. A friend of-
mine is living proof of this. He
related the following story to
me about the incident that
caused him to lose his home,
wife. and children. And it das
not the woman, really, but a
birthday party (his) that
started his downfall. Life' is
very strange and unfair some-
Tom (not his real name)
was a bachelor for many,
years before he decided to"
settle down and start a family.
He found a girl that he thought'
would make a good wife and:
mother, started dating her
and, within two years, was!
married. A good example of,
what setting a goal and going
after it can do.
At the time of the birthday'
party he had been married"
fourteen years and had three
beautiful children. He had
started and maintained a very,
successful insurance business.,,
With higher goals in mind he
continued to work and strive,
keeping in mind that he was,.:
first and foremost, a family
The problems in his early
married life centered around
two things, playing poker and
drinking. Those were the only
two vices he held on to after he'
was married, but not for long.
His wife, a devout Christian,
finally gave him a choice,
drinking and gambling or her,
He chose her and for about ten

his birthday he had hired a
new secretary and she was a
real "Looker." Not that she
wasn't efficient, because she
was; it was just a stroke of
luck (good or bad) that she
was overly blessed with good
looks and a stunning figure.
And- it wasn't long after
coming to work for Tom that
he realized that she had
feelings for him that were
much stronger that just a
boss-employee relationship. It
was obvious that she had a
"Crush" on Birthday-Boy.
'It was the afternoon of his
forty-third birthday when the
crisis reached its culmination.
As Tom was about to leave the
office his secretary asked him
if he would be kind enough to
drop her by her apartment.
Her car was in the shop and
she had no way to get home.
He reluctantly agreed. When
they arrived at her apartment
she asked if he would come in
for "just a minute" because
she had a "little gift" for him
on his birthday. Now, how
could he refuse?
Once inside, however, he.
found that she not only had a
little gift for him but she also
had a bottle of champagne and
bundles of soft music plus
some other unspoken delights.
The minute he was supposed
to stay lasted until about three
o'clock in the morning. There
was, he realized, trouble on
On the way home he decided
the best thing to do was
confess and ask for forgive-
ness. He concluded that there
was not story that he could
fabricate that would in any
way be close to believable.
Truth and honesty had always
been the best policy and he
would test that theory this
bleak, cold morning.

Comm. Gortman and Birm-

Owens voted no, stating he did
so because the county had a
limited amount of money to
spend on road paving, that
there was already enough
road paving set to take two
years to complete and the
Board needs to wait until those
roads are completed to review
road' priorities again. Comm.,

their road paving priorities
were inside the city limits.

clay in these holes and not
leveling them. He reported the
county road department has
put up precautionary signs
and blinkers, but that the
contractor has taken no safety
precautions. The attorney sug-
gested he and Comm. Birm-

tor to have these problems
corrected. Comm. Birming-
