Tax Rate Increased 4/10 Mill;


Will

The City of Port St. Joe will
have a slight increase in the
amount of taxes to be collect-
ed in ad valorem taxes
during the coming year, but
Tthe total budget reflects
a reduction of $260,849 from
last year.
,In a move which tentative-
by approved the new propos-
ed budget and tax rate for the
coming fiscal year, the Com-
mission approved a tax rate
of 3.857 mills, for an increase
of 15 percent. Last year's
village rate was 3.448. The
millage rate will take in an
estimated $534,000 in taxes.
Last year, the City collected
$464,572 in ad valorem taxes.
The reduction in the $5.5
million budget came in the

tion work completed this
year, reduced that budget

One Permit Still Needed for Dock


E. F. Gunn told the City Commis-
sion Tuesday night he has received
permission from the Department of
Natural Resources, giving the City
permission to replace the docks
alongside the boat launching slip at
the west end of Fifth Street with a
more permanent steel structure.
The old wooden dock and walk-
way was a constant maintenance
problem for the City.
Gunn reported he still has to hear
favorably from the. Corps of Engin-


eers, but it is his opinion it is only a
matter of getting the proper paper
work done before the permission is
granted.
Gunn has been working for the
past four months trying to secure
permits from the various agencies to
allow the replacement of the walk-
ways along the boat launch slip. "I
have all the design work and the plans
completed for the construction work
ready for the project to begin", Gunn
said. "All we need is this final word


from the Corps of Engineers to clear,
the way."
Efforts to replace the old struc-
ture started back in the spring when
the City decided to use some sheet
steel piling it had on hand to repair the
launch facilities. The City was stop-
ped at the time by state agencies, who
said permits were necessary. The City
was progressing under the assump-
tion their repair permit was sufficient
since the size of the new walks would
be the same as the present ones.


Reach Agreement City Crews Go

STeaer Shool Bod Bargang To 5 Day Work

Teams Come to Terms on New Pact Week October 1


With teacher strikes crippling the
nation's school system in other areas, Gulf
County's teachers have apparently reached
a working agreement with the Gulf County
School Board on a new three year contract.
Temple Watson, chief of the School
Board negotiating team said the system and
the teacher negotiating teams reached
agreement this week on a package which
must still be ratified by the teachers and the
School Board.
The teachers' last contract expired on
August 13 of this year.
Watson said there were four main points
to the changes in the working agreement,
which he said puts Gulf county in a "very
competitive position state wide" in teacher
pay.
Watson said under the tentative agree-
ment, teachers in Gulf County will receive a
pay increase of $1,300 per year and an extra
$100 per year' for teachers who have. been in
the system for 25 years or longer. "Last
year we gave a percentage increase, but
every once in a while you have to give an
across the boardraise or the top people will
soon have their pay schedules.far beyond
the beginner salaries", he said. Watson
went on to say the new proposed pay scale
would hike Gulfs starting teacher salary to
$14,500 for a beginning teacher with a
bachelor's degree. A beginner with a
master's degree would earn $16,000 under
the new schedule.
Teachers in Gulf County with 25 years
service will be earning $20,760 for bachelor's
degrees and $22,258 with a master's degree.
The other monetary matter was in the
field of insurance. The agreement would
have the' School Board increasing its health
insurance contribution by $120.00 per year.
"This actually took care of the increase in
the health insurance premium this year at
no cost to the teacher", Watson said.


The agreement would also pay an
additional seven percent in salary to part
time teachers in the adult school program
and increase pay supplements by various
amounts.
WORK RULES
The other main items in the new
contract consists of work rules.
The new agreement would require a
teacher to have the same number of student
contact hours per week as the old
agreement. This agreement was hammered
out even in face of the fact that teachers
must teach an extra period each day this
year. Under the proposed agreement, they
will still face the same number of students
each day. The contract requires an average
of 150 student contact hours per week.
The other work rule change in the
document concerns time off with pay.
Under the old agreement, teachers
received four days sick leave. Under the
new pact, they have six days of personal
leave available to them, which must be
charged against their sick leave accumula-
tion.
Watson said both sides are working to
get a final decision on the contract by early
next week. "We want to get the new figures
reflected in this month's check if we can get
all the ratification done before the check-
writing deadline", Watson said.
As it now stands, the teachers are to
meet to ratify 6r reject the agreement,
hopefully by Friday. If the teachers get their
meeting out of the way prior to the end of the
week, the School Board will meet Monday to
vote on the final draft of the contract. If all
of these moves are made on schedule, the
Board will give final consideration to the
pact at its regular meeting on September 24,
when it is to ratify the budget and the
contract if it is ready by that time.


After some three or four
years of experimenting with
having much of its work
force on a 10-hour day, four-
days a week, the Commission
agreed Tuesday night to go
back to an 8-hour, five day,
work week for all employees.
One of the main reasons for
changing the work rules was
that the new system has been
a problem from the first day
of providing coverage in the
necessary operations of
water and sewage operations
and the Wastewater Treat-
ment Plant, which operates
on a 24-hour basis.
The change was tried as an'
experiment a couple of years
ago, in an attempt to con-
serve energy and allow the
employees more days off. "It
just didn't work", Mayor
Frank Pate said.
POLICE RADIO
A new radio system for the
police department was pur-
chased from Jim's Electron-
ics in Panama City Tuesday
night, when the firm entered
a low bid of $7,275 for a base
station and four portables.
Interim chief Robert Maige
said there must have been a
mis-understanding in the
specifications. "We wanted
two radios for the cars and
one portable which could be
used in the cars, along with a
charger."
After negotiating with
Jim's, the city came up with


a purchase of two radios and
a portable, plus an agre-
ment to hike the sending
antenna by some 30 feet for
the same bid price.
The other bids were $9,200
from Clarksville Communi-
cations and $8,990 from Mot-
orola of Tallahassee.
OTHER BUSINESS
In other business matters,
the Commission:
-Agreed to hire a hew
policeman under a job train-
ing program, -which would
pay half his salary for a year.
-Instructed attorney Wil-
liam J. Rish to send an
official letter of notice to
owners of three residents in
the City, ordering improve-
ments be made within 30
days or legal steps will be
taken to force the action. The
three pieces of property were
considered in violation of the
nuisance ordinance. They
are located at Woodward and
First Street, on Cypress.
Avenue and on Seventh
Street.
-Heard a report from E.
F. Gunn that the, City had
another year to make struc-
tural changes in the City Hall
if they are needed, to make
the building accessible to the
handicapped. He said Octo-
ber 17 is .the deadline to start
on other minor changes such
as parking and entrance
ramps to the building, acces-
sible water fountains and
rest room facilities.


Car, Truck Bump

On Sixth Street

A car and a pick-up truck suffered light damage in a
crash on Sixth Street last Thursday afternoon. In the photo at
right officer Jim Savage of the City of Port St. Joe Police
Department conducts an investigation of the accident as he
talks to some of the witnesses to the mishap.
Charges of careless driving were filed against one of the
drivers, Freddie Lee Hogue, who allegedly backed his sports
sedan out of a driveway on Sixth Street into the path of a pick-
up truck being driven by Deborah Marie Beasley of 107
Monica Drive, Ward Ridge. The accident happened in the
vicinity of St. James Episcopal Church.
The Beasley vehicle was travelling east on Sixth Street
when it struck the Logue vehicle in the right rear. No injuries
were reported in the wreck.
According to the accident report, Hogue apparently
didn't see the Beasley truck coming and continued on out into
the right-of-way where the crash occurred.


Bring In
purchases at the plant took
up part of the reduction.
In a breakdown of funds,
the City will levy $1,519,069.00
in the General Fund; $572,-
859.00 in the Water and Sewer
fund; $34,440.00 in the Oak
Grove Water and Sewer dis-
trict and $3,487,260.00 in the
Wastewater Treatment
plant.
All the city budgets are self
supporting except the Gen-
eral Fund, which is support-
ed by taxes and other reve-
nues.
Three major expenditures
coming up in the next fiscal
year hiked the budget and
increased the millage rate
this year. The City is faced
with paying $150,000 on a
damage suit resulting from


a wreck three years ago in
which the city was ruled as
libel for damages by the
courts. A major expenditure
is also on tap for financing
the construction of the gar-
bage transfer station here in
the south end of Gulf County
which will be a joint venture
between the city and the
county. The city's share of
the initial construction will
be $215,483, with construction
to begin in the next few days.
Another major expendi-
ture, which surfaced just
recently, is payment of ap-
proximately $50,000 a year to
a fund under which the old
Municipal Hospital received
its malpractice insurance
coverage. Recent decisions
by courts in the state have


ruled that participants in the
program are responsible for
court awards for damages
under the plan. Participants
in the program at the time
must pay damages awarded
against.member hospitals at
the time.
Municipal had no claims
against it, but is responsible
for paying its share of fhe
damages.
"If it weren't for these
three items, we could have a
nice reduction in taxes this
year", Clerk Alden Farri3
said. The increase in the
budget is about half of the
increased extra-ordinary ex-
penditures.
The City will give their

Lee Win Election
Voters of Ward Rhke returned their Mayor and
one Commissioner to office and ousted a third
incumbent by only one vote Tuesday, in an election
which saw all three incumbents with opposition.
John Rich, who has served on the Ward Ridge
commission for many years, went down in defeat by
one vote, losing to Johnny Lee by a count of 31 to 30.
Current Mayor Allen V. McCulley, won re-election
on the Commission by the largest majority of any of the
candidates, polling 48 votes to 13 for his opponent,
Denise Strickland. McCulley, who is appointed Mayor
by the Commission, has served four years in the post.
Incumbent Lewis Taylor also won re-election,
besting his Opponent, Warren Yeager, by a vote of 34 to
27.
*All the newly-elected officials will take over new,
four year terms on October 1.
RAISING UTILITY TAX
The current Commission at Ward Ridge has filed
intentions to hike its utility tax rate to six percent.
Presently utilities in the community are taxed at the
rate of four percent.
McCullers said the City advised Florida Power to
discontinue its six percent franchise tax a couple of
years ago and installed the utility tax.
"The utility tax is our main source of revenue in
Ward Ridge", McCullers said. "We have no ad
valorem tax and when you have only $1,500 worth of
income and bills of $2,250, something has to be done."

County Lists Tentative


Budget for Fiscal 1985


Gulf County is advertising its final
proposal for budget year 1985 in this week's
issue of The Star on pages 12 and 13.
According to the advertised figures, the
expenditure budget for the year is 10 percent
more than last year, primarily because of
special expenditures which are not a
recurring expense.
Under the budget proposal, the County
will levy 5.249 mills, up from the 5.180 mills
of a year ago. The millage levy is expected
to bring in a major share of the proposed
expenditures of $4,407,791.00.
Of the several different categories in the
new budget recapitulation, there are three
reductions and five increases in funds.
Some of the increases come from such
items as landfill capital outlay expendi-
tures. The county has budgeted $447,000 to
construct a solid waste transfer station and
$100,000 to permit the Buckhorn landfill site
and close the Port St. Joe landfill to the
specification. of DER.
Other big ticket items in the budget for the
first time include $72,936.00 to pay techni-
cians to operate the Port St. Joe ambulance
service and some $987,050.00 to construct the
Beaches water system, currently under
construction.


Of these three items, only two contain tax
money. The Beach water system is a
self-funding program, which is being
managed by the county.
Other tax increases are being forced on
the County Commission by the creeping rise
in the cost of operations, a four percent
increase in salaries granted this year and
the rising cost of retirement contributions
and hospital insurance.
The General Fund, which finances a
multitude of operations by the County, has
the largest increase of some $200,000. The
General Fund is also the financial pocket
from which the landfill improvements must
come.
Fine and Forfeiture funds will be
increased by some $40,000, primarily to pay
for innovations to the jail complex, ordered
by the State of Florida and to pay for salary
increases determined by the County.
Capital outlay has a huge $300,000
increase, largely because of the Beach
Water system project.
The county will have the final considera-
tion of their budget next Tuesday at their
regular meeting, when final adoption will be
considered.

Down Set .. Hut


By Kesley Colbert
Now, I don't know much
about football. I have seen a
game or two on television.
I've even been to a few
games in person. And i know
you'll probably find this hard
to believe, but I've even


played in a couple of games
myself. I don't remember
the name of the position' I
played but I can describe it'
to you. I was the guy that
stood right behind the guy
that squatted down over the
ball. Everybody would get


set and then this guy would
hand me the ball between his
legs- can you imagine that!
Well, I didn't want thathball
because I learned early that
people on the other team
kept running into you if they
saw you had the ball, so just


as soon as it was given to me,
I turned and handed it to the
first guy coming by. Then I'd
step back and yell "Run,
Run, Run! Sometimes John
would run a far piece.
Sometimes John would come
to a sudden stop. Every once


I* N
Kesley Colbert
in a while I'd get the ball and
turn around and John
wouldn't be there.....then I
ran like the wind because I
didn't want those guys on the
other team running into me.
Sometimes I'd give a little
ground, most often I'd get
run into very quickly. And
sometimes I'd get going one
direction as hard as I could
go, and a player that I didn't
see on the other team would
be coming even harder in the
opposite direction and
Bingo- he'd run right
through me. That, folks, is
known as the sudden stop,
Usually I'd find out later that
the guy's name was Moose,
or Mack Truck, or Freight
Train...
Now let me tell you quickly
that I'm not complaining
about the sudden stop. And
I'm not complaining about
all those two and a half hours
of practice we'd have with
those coaches yelling at you
all the time-- you even
notice that coaches tend to
have the ability to yell louder
that anyone you've every
known? And I'm certainly
not complaining about the
bumps and bruises I had
after every practice and
every game. Shucks, I've
been bruised pretty good by
some people in life that
didn't hit me at all. You
know what I mean? The
reason I'm not complaining
is playing football has been
and is one of the finest grow-
ing experiences in my life.
You talk about finding out
about yourself. You get up
after the sudden stop and
find that you were able to
take it, then you're just
about ready for anything.
For the past 16 years I've
had the privilege of watching
young men going through
our local high school pro-
gram. I've seen 'em come to
that sudden stop and get up.
I've seen 'em grow up. I've.
seen self-confidence take
birth in a young man's life.
I've seen immaturity lose
out to maturity. rIve seen
weaklings gain pounds and
strength. I've seen fat ones
lose weight and gain agility.

ETAOIN SHRDLU

L By: Wesley R. Ramsey


WHILE WE CONSIDERED cer-
eal as a special treat, I remember
back when cereal was a precious item
about the house, because nearly every
kind of cereal made back in those
days, offered a special deal of some
sort.
Back then, Wheaties sponsored
"Jack Armstrong, the All American
Boy" on the radio each and every
afternoon. Jack was the adventure-


cover handling and postage.
It wasn't any trouble getting the
box tops, because all us "all American
boys" insisted on Wheaties to eat for
breakfast and we had the box tops.
The trick was in getting the quarter.
Quarters were hard to come by in the

I SHIFTED OUR family to a Post
Bran diet one time. Here we had been
living on Wheaties and Post Corn
Flakes (known in those days as Post
Toasties) in the morning. They had
the best prizes and the best surprises
in the box.
One day, though, Post 40 percent
Bran Flakes struck a blow which


cornered the breakfast cereal busi-
ness for them: at least it did with me.
I was about nine years old and
Post Bran came out with an offer of a
free pair of roller skates for anyone
who could send in 40 box tops. (one for
each percentage point of bran in the
box). I'll have you know, I saved box
tops, pestered the neighbors and the
relatives to save me their box tops,
searched the trash cans and did
everything I could to get those 40 box
tops together.
One day, after about a month or so
of hustling up box tops and counting
the ones I had at least twice a day, I
finally counted them and the total
came out to 40. I counted again, just to
make sure. Then I bundled them up
and had Momma mail them off to Mr.
Post and ask for my free pair of roller
skates.

THE LITTLE TOWN in which we
lived didn't have a single paved road.
The main highway through town,
between Depew and Drumwright, was
oiled to keep down the dust, but there


wasn't a paved road.
When the oil field was struck in
the edge of the pool which lies under
Tulsa, and the town was built, there
was a sidewalk build alongside every
street in town. There was no central
sewer; there were no paved roads;
there were no curbs and gutters and
running water only when the town
water well wasn't dry or the distribu-
tion pipes were not frozen up.
But we had sidewalks.
The day came when my roller
skates came in the mail and I started
on the corner in front of the cotton gin,
skated down in front of the school house
and made a complete circle around
town, trying out my new roller skates
and learning to skate at the same
time.
I was proud of those skates.
I'll bet I took them apart at least
two dozen times just to clean them up
and oil them so I could get more speed
out of them.
It's a shame cereal makers today
don't offer free roller skates for
saving box tops.

Kesley (co
I've seen young kids given
responsibility and a
challenge, and then watched
them respond to it like a
Iran, which they were fast
becoming. I've seen them
have fun, suffer the most ex-
cruciating disappointment,
get hurt, get mad, get glad,
feel lonely, feel like a hero
and not be one, be a hero and
not even know it, and a whole
lot more. I wish that I could
say that I helped but I'm
afraid that's not true- I
wasn't a very good coach
'cause I couldn't yell as loud
as those other guys.
You know what we haven't
talked about- winning. Now
listen to me, winning is im-
portant and I'm all for it, but
I've seen young men grow up
even in defeat. You see we
miss the boat with all this
"No. 1" stuff and pre-season
polls and post-season polls.
And you go 4-6 and it's
"Sorry, Coach, we're going
to try someone else." These
young people are 15, 16, 17
years old, and they don't
need tremendous pressure
placed on them- they need
an opportunity and a situa-
tion in which they can ex-
perience positive growth in
their life. Football provides
that. There are hundreds of
unpositive growth situations
in our society today, but


Dear Voter,.
Dear Voter,


I ask you.to consi
for dedication, since
for my fellow man.

that does.

we'll deal with them in a
later chapter.
Next time you go to a foot-
ball game don't just watch
the guy with the football all
the time, check out those
guys up front blocking,
working at their assign-
ments as hard as the guy
that's got the ball. Check out
the guys on the bench wait-
ing for their turn that might
not ever come because, still,
most of them have paid a


price just to put the uniform
on. Feel proud of all of them.
If you've never come to that
sudden stop yourself, don't
be too quick to judge or to
criticize. I guess what I'm
trying to say is the next high
school game you take in,
don't just "watch" the game
but "experience" the growth
that the young men of our
community are going
through.
Respectfully,
Kesley

"Gulf County has had and
still has one of the best
equipped ambulance serv-
ices in Northwest Florida"
Andy Millergren,.new direc-
tor of the south Gulf County
service told the Kiwanis Club
Tuesday.
"Your volunteers have
done a superb job of main-
taiing a functioning service
and in providing quality care
over the past years. We plan
to maintain this quality in the
future", Millergren said.
The service director said
he plans to keep the volun-
teers active on an auxiliary
basis. "The job is too great,
now, to expect volunteers to
provide the care demanded
and still have time to take
care of their jobs and famil-


ies." He pointed out that
factors such as the opening of
the nursing home has put a
tremendous surge into the
emergency medical business
here in the Port St. Joe area.
Millergren said plans are
being studied presently, to
upgrade the service to an
advanced life support pro-
gram. "This will probably
take at least another year or
two to get into operation, but,
we're working on it." Pre-
sently, the service provides
basic life support and trans-
portation to medical facili-
ties.
The director said he also
has plans to hold courses in
CPR, first aid, and teach
.emergency medicine to high
school students, with the


intention of using the stu-
dents on an auxiliary basis in
the future.
Millergren said that pre--
sently, the service is staffed
with one paramedic (him
self) and EMT's. He said
three of his staff are current-
ly planning to take the
paramedic training course.


Presently the service
maintains 24-hour-a-day ser-
vice, seven days a week, with
personnel stationed at the
ambulance building at all
times.
Guests of the club were
Key Clubbers Tiffany Carr,
Steve Kerigan and Joe Nor-
ton.

The Port St. Joe Garden
Club held its first meeting of
the new year (beginning
September 1984 through
May, 1985) in the beautifully
decorated Garden Center on
Eighth Street Thursday, Sep-
tember 13, under the direc-
tion of the club's new presi-
dent, Mrs. Don Ashcraft. The
club will continue to meet on
the second Thursday of each
month. The luncheon invoca-
tion was given by Mrs. Stiles
Brown, and the opening
prayer for the meeting by
Mrs. Rochelle Jackson.
The day's program, "The
Art of Bow-Tying", was
presented by Mrs. Deanna
Taylor who is associated with
St. Joseph Bay Flowers and
Gifts.
Mrs. Taylor began her
program by showing to the
interested members a size-
able chart to which a variety
of ribbon bows had been
attached. Taking one of the
bows from the board, she
showed the group exactly
how it had been made and
then passed out ribbons for
membership participation.
Mrs. Taylor then instructed
the group in the pleasurable
art of making bows for
Christmas packages, and
other bows for decorating a
Christmas tree.


Early plans for the new
year call for serving a
banquet meal for one of the
churches; planning for a
wedding reception; and
building a bannister around
the front porch in keeping
with the original planning.
Mrs. Agnes Culpepper and
Mrs. John Blount were com-
mended for the condition of
the grounds during the sum-
mer months, as well as for
work at Holly Hill Cemetery
and other places, and having
the ditch behind the club
building cleaned. Mrs.
Blount asked that old officers
and chairmen turn in their
keys for the benefit of the
new officers.
Mrs. Culpepper offered to
plant phlox seeds along the
highway from Ward Ridge to
the cemetery, and she sug-
gested that the name "Holly
Hill Memorial Way" be used.
The members were in agree-
ment.
The regular District II
meeting will be held at the
Gulf Beach Garden Club,
Panama City, at a cost of
$6.50 per member, the price
to include registration and
lunch. The date for the
meeting is October 11th. For
further information, call
Mrs. Ashcraft or the secre-
tary, Mrs. Sally Sulzer.


Mrs. Ashcraft reported
that the new garden club
programs will be ready for
the second meeting, October
4. The club date was moved
up a week, due to a conflict
with the District meeting.

spected men than were the
delegates to the convention
which began December 3,
1838. These men labored
diligently for thirty four days
to draft the Constitution
which was signed January
11, 1839. This Constitution
became the organic law of
Florida when admitted to the
union March 3, 1845.
Mr. Roth gave a detailed
account of the important part
tfAlt the Railroads demon-
strated at that time, and of
the schooner Herald, report-
.ed to have brought yellow
fever to the city's inhabit-
ants, burying their captain,
Kupher, in the ol cemetery.
Mr. Roth gave an account of
the great storm, and of the
economic slump which con-
tributed to the city's ultimate
demise.
Although St. Joseph only
lasted nine years it has left a
very memorable impact up-
on Florida's history.
Under the direction of Mr.
Roth The Colonial Dames
visited the Constitution Mu-
seum, and Old Saint Joseph
Cemetery.
The Colonial Dames XVII
Century are all descendents
from land-owner settlers of
the original Thirteen Colo-
nies. Every generation has to
be legally documented that
the ancestor came to Ameri-
ca during the 1600's. Some of
the members are descen-
dents of the delegates and
signers of Florida's Constitu-
tion.

Gators Off and Running 376 Cars of Coal Being Shipped
*.~U t U U1-


with Second Victory


Wewahitchka's Gators are
beginning to think they are
for real this year, after their
second straight win, coming
off a disastrous 0-10 season
last year. The Gators were
too much for the Carrabelle
Green Devils last Friday'
night, whipping the Devils
20-6 on the Gators' home
field.
Ed Baxley and Roy Myers
were the big scoring punch
for the Gators, combining on
two of the Gators' three
touchdowns, with Baxley do-
ing the running and Myers
the kicking. Todd Sterzoy
scored the third Gator TD.
The entire first period was
spent with both teams feeling
the other out. Then, early in
the second period, when
Baxley scored from two
yards out to take.a lead the
Gators never gave up for the
remainder of the game.
; Sterzoy added his TD after
an eight yard run in the third
period and Baxley came
back in the final stanza to
score on a sparkling 35 yard
run.
Sterzoy was the Gators'
leading yard gainer for the
night, churning out 104, while
Baxley tossed in 84 for the
Gators. Between the two of
them, Sterzoy and Baxley
fiad 188 of the 218 yards
gained in rushing by the
Gators,
At the first of the season,
new head coach Dennis Kiz-
ziah said his team's greatest
asset this year would prob-
ably be the offensive line.
Friday night, the defense
didn't exactly stay at home
either. They allowed the
tDevils only 124 total yards,
and totally contained the
Devils' ace running back,


Darin Cruson.
Cruson managed to put
across a last 'quarter score
for the Devils as the game
was winding down, but it was
on an eight yard pass play
from quarterback Chris Cas-
ter. The scoring strike was
one of only two passes
completed by Carrabelle dur-
ing the game.

Material Transfer of Port
St, Joe is currently shipping
out four 'trains a week,
consisting of 94 loaded coal
cars to Seminole Electric in
Palatka, according to Tom-
my Pitts, plant manager.
"A few months ago, the
electric generating firm blew
up a turbine and had to cease
operations for a while. This
cut our shipments down to a
trickle for over a month.
We're back up to schedule
with our shipments now",
Pitts said.
The firm, which built its


barge terminal on the bank of
the Gulf County Canal here in
Port St. Joe, was built on the
basis of shipping some 9,500
tons of coal per day to the
central Florida utility, "but
we can handle other mater-
ials as well and will be
looking for other business",
Pitts said. He pointed that
even with the present heavy
volume of coal going through
the plant, it is still handling
only about a third of the
product it is capable of.
handling.
Under present conditions,
Pitts said the plant can
unload 10,000 tons of coal per
day, load it in hopper cars
and ship it out. "Adding
another shift or two would
dramatically increase this
capability", Pitts said.
The plant manager told the
Rotary Club the firm would
be sending out six trains per
week in a short while. "The
second Seminole generator
will be coming on line soon
and we'll be increasing our
shipments", Pitts said.
The coal originates in the
coal fields of Kentucky and
Illinois and is shipped down

leans; through the Intra-
coastal Canal to Port St. Joe
and off-loaded onto the train
for its final haul to Palatka.
Pitts said the coal is
handled three times during
its journey and still, over a
period of some 20 years, the
utility will save enough mon-
ey in transportation charges
to pay for their generating
plant.
Pitts said the plant cur-
rently has 13 employees.
"More business will cause us
to add more personnel, by
adding more shifts", he said.

You Know You

Have A Fair

and Honest

Sheriff


KEEP HIM!

There has been much said about the three famous
drug cases my opponent made in his twenty yeais of law
enforcement, but no one has bothered to tell you the
whole truth. Just like other things in this campaign, you
are only being told what sounds 'good. Here are the
facts:
The science teacher was arrested October 9, 1972,
twelve years ago. According to page 45 of the Gulf Coun-
ty Sheriff's Department Jail Docket, H. T. Dean, then
Chief Deputy, made that arrest. That person pled guilty
on April 13, 1973, of possession of less than 5 grams of
marijuana, a misdemeanor.
The Guidance Counselor, not employed by the
school system, was stopped for a traffic violation on
June 9, 1981, 3 years ago. When she went to present her
drivers license, a small amount of marijuana was sup-
posedly observed in her purse. She was never pro-
secuted. Charges were dropped March 29, 1984.
The other two were arrested May 5, 1984 by my op-
ponent. They were escorted in the back door of the
Sheriff;s office and then out the front door. They were
taken somewhere for approximately three hours by my
opponent, brought back through the Sheriff's office and
were released by the arresting officer. Never were they
placed in jail or custody of the Sheriff or his staff for
possession of marijuana and growing marijuana near a
school.
Ken Murphy is honest with the people of Gulf Coun-
ty.
Seven years ago, as your Sheriff, I purchased two
radar units with County taxpayers' money and issued'
them to the State Troopers of Gulf County to use,
because the speeding fines go to the County where the
arrests are made. One was given to my opponent.
There were 3 State Troopers working Gulf County. In the
18 months prior to my opponent obtaining a leave of
absence to run for Sheriff, one State Trooper made 724
arrests in Gulf County, another made 413 arrests in Gulf
: County, my opponent made 98 arrests in Gulf County.
The radar machine was consistently used to make ar-
rests in Bay and Calhoun Counties, thereby, making
: money for those counties.
The people of Gulf County havqbeen promised that
traffic laws will be enforced in all areas of Gulf County.
The Florida Highway Patrol has the responsibility of en-
forcing traffic laws on all streets, highways, and dirt
roads in Gulf County, not just major highways. How
many times have you seen my opponent working traffic
in your area, while on duty with'the Highway Patrol?
Why should you believe he will act any differently?

I Do You Want to Know the Truth


About Al Harrison?



There are a few peo-
pie in Gulf County
that are worried Al
Harrison will be elect-
ed Sheriff. They will '

e:r do anything to pre- -
vent this, including
starting vicio s ":iF 4 '
.rumors. I want to ;'.
d answer a few of these
)f rumors. .v


s NO! Al Harrison has never said he wold fire all the deputies when
elected.
NO! Al Harrison has never, nor will I ever advise anyone to cover up
1- any crime.
' NO! The F.B.I. is not investigating Al Harrison for being a member
d of the Ku Klux Klan. This stupid rumor was started in North
Port St. Joe.
X, NO! Al Harrison is not wanted in Georgia for murder.
; NO! Al Harrison has never committed a crime. He has never even
'been accused of committing a crime prior to these campaign
d
rumors.
YES!' The Drug Dealers are worried and are 100% opposed to Al Har-
). .rison. Think about it. They will lose money and possibly their
n freedom.
d YES! Al Harrison will improve the Sheriff's Office by better training
rh and supervision of the deputies.
t YES! I will work 4 years to have better law enforcement in Gulf
n ;County.
YES. Al Harrison has and will continue to run a clean campaign. S:
), I am very proud of my record as a Florida Highway Patrolman for 20
n years. My honesty, loyalty and dedication to my job has never been
, questioned. The same type of rumors were spread against a Florida
1n Marine Patrolman four years ago in Bay County, but as we all know
this man has made one of the finest sheriffs in Florida. I ask the voters
* to look at and evaluate the motive of these rumors. If you are in doubt X
call the State Attorney office or any other reliable agency and check
the rumor out.



AL HARRISON SHERIFF
He will restore trust to the Gulf County Sheriff's Office
