Gulf Embarks On New Voting Districts Tuesday
Gulf County voters will go to the polls in the 13
precincts in Gulf County on Tuesday of next week in the
first round of primary .voting prior to the November
Electors in the county will also be voting under the new
single member district plan for the first time, but the
Supervisor of Elections, Cora Sue Robinson and both the
.'county ai)d-school boards have made the transition as
easy as possible in an attempt to keep down as much
confusion, as possible.
Robinson reported to the County Commission Tuesday
night, that her department had notified all voters who will
see any change in the manner in which they vote. "We'll
probably need a new precinct before the 1988 election to
make everything work out smoothly", she said.
Gulf County has slightly more than 7,000 registered
.Democrats and about 200 registered as Republicans or
* "Other" on its voter rolls for the September primaries.
Sample Ballot Is Printed

Polls will be open in Gtilf County from 7:00 a.m., to 7:00
p.m., just as they will be in every other precinct in the
Only one precinct will be casting its votes in a different
location this year. Precinct 3 at Honeyville will be voting in
the Peters' building this election year. The building is just
across highway 71 from the old polling place and will be
identified with the usual "Precinct 3" sign.
One'other precinct nearly had to change its location,
but a last minute spurt of activity placed a new Scout Hut
building in the old location and got it ready to receive
electors in.Tuesday's voting.
The old Scout Hut, which served as the polling place
for Precinct 10 in Port St. Joe, was razed recently to make
way for a new installation. A new building was moved to
the old location late last week and was made ready this
week for use on Tuesday.
The only change in voting this year will be that voters
in Precinct 8 will elect the County Commissioner from
District 4. No other precinct will have the District 4
candidates on their machines.
Precinct 2 will elect a new County Commissioner from
District 2 in the north end of Gulf County. No other precinct
will have this question on their voting machines.
All precincts will have the name of every candidate
running for office listed for the elector to vote on'

We no longer owe anybody a favor.

In Gulf County, we will be
paying our Tax Collector, Clerk of
the Court and Property Appraiser
all $38,992 a year in tax money, as
salaries. The Supervisor of Elec-
tions will command $31,083 in
wages next year. The Sheriff and
Superintendent 'of Schools, will,
collect $43,078 for doing their jobs.
We'll pay our county judge $60,000
a year for his position.
School Board, members in

as their salary next year. County
Commissioners will be paid $11,861.

positions are doing you a favor?,.
No, sir. We're paying a nice salary
for the positions.

IT WASN'T TOO MANY years ago that country,
folks were snickered at because they liked fried
chicken, As a matter of fact, there were many jokes
about country folks eating 'fried chicken every Sunday
I know this to be a fact because I'm from the
country and I've endured these jokes for years.
TODAY THE TABLE has turned. What city folks
made fun of some years ago, I find, they are now doing
themselves to an even greater extent than we ever did.
I have never seen so many places that sell fried
chicken. When the first Kentucky Fried Chicken
restaurant opened, I thought they had lost their minds.
There they were, trying to market a commodity that I
had eaten all my life and one that was always available
and cheap. To my surprise, the restaurant not only
survived, but flourished and sparked other, similar
TODAY FRIEI) CHICKEN is sold everywhere. I'm
not certain but I would guess that fried chicken has
surpassed hamburgers and hot dogs in popularity.
There are not only many different restaurant chains
that specialize in fried chicken, but it is sold in gas
.'.stations, grocery stores,, pizza houses, Mexican
restaurants.-Chinese restaurants and bus stations. It is
sold roasted, breasted, hot or mild, fried, raw or on the
hoof. The world has gone chicken crazy!
I have wondered for some time now about what
brought on this chicken craze. The main reason, I think,
is that chicken is sq good. Country folks have known
that for some time. It's hard to. beat a platter of fried
chicken with homemade mashed potatoes and turnip
greens and hot cornbread on the side. Iced tea is also a
staple item that goes with the above.
ANOTHER REASON CHICKEN is so popular is
that it is cheap and convenient. Today you can gas- up
Sour car and eat lunch:at the same time. Or, you might
eat a drumstick while purchasing a bus ticket to
Memphis, Tennessee, if you're inclined- to defect. Your
only problem would be washing your hands after ou
eat. I understand that now that is not a problem. I'm
told that they now have toilets on buses. Will wonders
Another reason I think commercial fried chicken is
so popular is people don't know how to cook it. If they
do, they must be too. lazy to. Immediately prior to my
marriage, I presented my future wife with a marriage
application that had two questions on it. They were: 1)
Can you cook good fried chicken? 2) Will you cook it
every day if requested?
The answer to both was affirmative so I am now
,,married. My wife and I have three little chick-a-dees

side. My side is as follows for
public information, only.
Sunday night. August 10.
my name was heard on the
police scanner for a possible
expired license plate. In
addition, Tuesday. August 12;.
just past 8:30 a.m. a police
officer came rushing around
the corner of Rich's, coming
up the alley the wrong way. It
was revealed to me later that
he was trying to catch me in
my car. Shortly after I
entered the store, an, em-
ployee told me the police has
been up the alley four times.
About that time the officer
came to our back door and
summoned mny son, David,
outside. When David return-
ed I inquired as to what the
trouble was and he said, my
license was expired. I asked
him why the officer didn't tell
me since it w'as my car and I
was standing inplain view of
the officer when he called
David. I called the officer, he
.was out, but he came to my
store around noon. Three
customers were present but
he came in "loaded for
bear". When I went over to
talk to him he became loud
and began to accuse me of
causing trouble in the depart-
ment. and talking about the
police. I asked him why he
didn't tell me about my
expired license instead of my
son and asked why he had
placed my name on the
,scanner that morning: When
I told him a friend had heard
it and told me, he screamed
that my friend had lied, that
my name had not been on the
scanner that morning. He
was right about that as I had
misunderstood the time and
it was Sunday night instead
of Tuesday a.m. My custom-
ers were eye witnesses;to the
by that officer'and'-two of-,
them left' in 'disgust. The'
officer told me the reason he
had not told me about the tag
was 'that, he knew I would
take just that kind of atti-
tude. I called Chief Maige
and suggested the officer
deserved a reprimand. He lit
into me, too, saying it looked
like I would appreciate him
telling me about my tag. I
told him I would have
appreciated his telling me,
but he didn't, he lold my son.
About an hour later the
officer returned to the store
and wanted to talk in private
with David and me. He was.
still belligerent, and did all
the talking while we did the
listening. He had another
reason then for not telling me
about the tag. He said "I
looked like I would bite a nail
in two. He did admit my
name was on the teletype on
Lt. Graves desk. When I
mentioned to him that he
came down the alley the
wrong way, he replied that he
knew all about alleys and
when it came to catching
people who break and enter,
he was the best. Of course, I
That day we bought the
sticker and put it on the
plate. Wednesday, a.m. Afig.
13, 'the same officer came
back down the alley, to check
my car and told one of my
employees that the chief said
if he could catch Mrs. Roche
in that car to give her a
ticket. That is harassment,
subtle, but still harassment.
As for Chief Maige's state-
ment that the officer thought
he was doing me a favor is
ridiculous. You don't put a
person's name on the police
scanner, make four trips
down the alley to check a
license, then return the next
day for the fifth trip, just to
do somebody a favor when a
simple telephone call would

CITY OF WARD RIDGE
/s/ Allen V. MCulley
Voters of Gulf County:
Election day is only five days away and the other candidates for Clerk of the
Circuit Court continue tb shy away from what I consider to be a key issue;,.
That issue involves the proper execution of constitutionally and statutorily
edicted relationships between the Clerk and the other officers of fulf
County. These relationships, of late, have been less than optimum and in-
dicate the need for a fresh dialogue between the various county officers, a ,
dialogue that should be carried on without the intervention of the Courts.' Let
me state once more that, If elected, I will ask that the Board of County, Com-
missioners, County Attorney, Sheriff, and other constitutional officers meet
with me In frank, open discussion to review these relationships and to insure
that we have a mutual understanding of our duties and responsibilities to
each other and to the citizens of Gulf County.
The myriad of functions required of the Clerk's office can be routinely,. '.
handled by competent Deputy Clerks and Finance Officers, whose perfor-
mance must be closely monitored and constantly evaluated by tHe Clerk
' himself. The Clerk's primary role remains that of a manager, ,ho oversees
an organization of highly dedicated and qualified civil '*b1'k0fIn that role
as manager, I offer to the people of Gulf County extetigiv'ilh'* agarial ex- ,,j
* perience and background including a Master of Science degree from the U.S.
Naval Postgraduate at Monterey, CA. Other qualifik'lions have been outlin-
ed here earlier. I retired as a Captain, U. S. Navy after twenty-4iglit years, of.
faithful service, and I stand ready to deliver that same dedication and exper-
tise to the office of the Clerk.
Please exercise your right to vote on September 2nd.

- From A Flower Pot to An Acre
Because of Adaptability and Versatility
By Roy Lee Carter
One doesn't have to own a
large home on an acre lot to
enjoy gardening. A balcony
or patio of a condominium or
small areas around a trailer
offer plenty of room for
The popularity of raising
plants in containers has
increased tremendously in
recent years. Container gar-
dening is adaptable and
v esatile. Practically all
plants can be grown in a pot,
box or jar, at least temporar-
ily. Plants in containers can
be moved indoors during cold
spells or simply for use an as
interior decoration. Pot gar-
dening makes it possible to
have plants you couldn't
otherwise grow outdoors for
an indefinite period.
A container plant is much
more dramatic than the
same plant when massed
with other plants. A contain-
er creates a special setting
,for a plant and thus accentu-
ates its qualities.
" It is almost impossible for
container gardening to be
boring. Plants can be rotated
to create all types of effects.
Seasonal flowering plants
can be brought on stage when
they are at their maximum
beauty, and then removed to
be replaced with another
plant. For example, imagine
how lovely your patio could
be with spring bulbs and
azaleas followed by summer
annuals like marigolds and
salvia, then fall flowering
mums and finally Christmas
poinsettias. This is what can
be done with container gar-
Select a container of the
right size and shape for the
growth characteristics and
appearance of your plant.
The container is half the
picture. A handsome plant
deserves a handsome planter
and vice versa. The contain-
er can be practically any-
thing from a tea kettle or
antique churn to a terra cotta
pot, clay pot, wooden box,
clay flue tile or even a
crevice in a rock or an old
log. Fine ceramic and red-
wood containers can be pur-
chased but handmade con-
tainers are always the best
since they represent your
own talent. Even an old
mailbox with cascading pe-
tunias draping down from the
opening is a most sutiable
container. Let your imagina-
tion be your guide.
Use a porous, fast draining
soil mix such as half peat and
half course sand. Plants need
good drainage for growth so

South Florida Fisheries President Defends Raffield
Claims Matter Only A Smokescreen to Hide
Real Issue from
'lorida's "Manipulated Citizens
By Curt Sinclair
South Florida Fisheries, Inc.
.From all news reports, Gene
Raffield of Raffield Fisheries has
mercilessly scraped the bottom of the
Gulf of Mexico clean of all fish! Ask
anyone on the street about the redfish
issue and you will' see faces redden,
veins pop but and anger spew forth!
Once again, public opinion is being
What better way' to grab headlines
than to bust Gene Raffield for illegal
redfish again! But how could this be
accomplished when all his licenses
aret in order and he had Federal
observers on his boats to make sure
everything was done according, to
Hoyle. Someone found the answer in a
33-year old Florida Law that has never
been enforced! Gene Raffield was not
charged with, too many fredfish, too
small or too large redfish! He was
charged with having food fish in his
possession that was caught with a
purse seine net. The media focused on
the redfish as an issue and not the
method of harvest. According to this
law, if you have any salmon, sardines,
mackerel, etc., in your possession,
you could have illegal fish and could
be charged with the same offense.
Look out Winn Dixie, Publix and all
food distributors. A clear case of
State Biologists and commercial
fishermen agree on three things about
the redfish issue. One, there is no
shortage of large redfish in the deeper
clean waters of the Gulf of Mexico;
two, because of the increased interest
in the species, its stocks should be
studied; and three, there is a shortage
of young redfish in'the polluted waters
around our larger metropolitan areas.
Now, let's play with some pub-
lished statistical facts that have never
been fully explained to the public.
According to Florida Department of
Natural Resources records, 88 per-
cent of all redfish caught in Florida
waters are caught by recreational
fishermen and only 12 percent by
commercial fishermen. All this
reaction over a mere 12 percent. .
The State of Louisiana, where the
bulk of the large bull reds are
presently being harvested, points out
that the commercial recreational
catch is about equally divided.
However, it is never mentioned in the
media that,.the average commercially
caught redfish is 18-20 pounds and has
spawned, while the average recrea-
tional redfish is 2 3 pounds and has
, never had the chance to spawn. In
other words, the recreational contin-
gent is catching six (6) times.as many
redfish (that never even have a
chance to spawn), and yet they are
claiming foul and want the commer-
cial industry shut down.
There are winners and losers
here. Unfortunately, by far the
biggest loser is Florida's manipulated
citizens and her many visiting tour-
ists. If the small minority of indivi-
duals who are lucky enough to own a
boat or have access to a dock have
their way, they will be the only ones
eating fresh Florida seafood! Do you
like fresh grouper sandwiches, or
blackened redfishliow are you going
to get itEven if you have a neighbor
with a registered boat, 'he probably
only uses it once or twice a year and
has a "For Sale" sign on it.
There is a need to regulate our
fisheries both recreational and
commercial. What we do not need is a
Fisheries Commission that bases its
decisions on political climates and
does not pay heed to basic facts. In
short, commercial fishermen are a
very small percentage of the voting
public and they are being written off
by the majority of our public officials.
These officials would rather be riding
theii- white horses (sharks) and
championing paper tiger issues that
can be twisted around to look like they
are saving our coast from evil
monsters (commercial fishermen).
Want an example?
Another misconstrued statistic
used by recreational interest groups
states that the recreational fishing
industry pumps 1.8 billion dollars into
Florida's economy, while the com-
mercial industry only generates 300
million. What, they conveniently left
out, is that they are basing the
recreational dollar totals on retail
figures while they are only using dock
side "boat" prices for the commercial
interests! If the monies generated by
our seafood restaurants, related jobs,
etc., are counted, the commercial
industry's economic impact on Flor-
ida's economy would exceed the
Recreational and commercial
fishermen both want the same things -
to protect their fish for the future. We
are asking the Florida Marine Fisher-
ies Commission and the media to quit
playing games with so important an
issue. All anyone can ask for. is fair,
impartial and objective management.
Both sides have made mistakes in.
the past, and will need to make some
concessions. Maybe if they can quit
this political fighting and name
calling, .they can join forces and fight
the biggest threat facing both the
recreational and commercial groups -

event is an effort to gear up
catfish production in the
state, says conference coor-
dinator William Lindberg.
The workshop is aimed at
people just entering the
business as well as those who
are already producing the
popular foodfish. Various
catfish industry suppliers
will display- their waresat
the trade show.
"The workshop will give
Floridians the basics of the
catfish farming business,"
says Lindberg, who is a
scientist at the department of
fisheries and aquaculture in
the Institute of Food -and
(IFAS) at the University of
Florida. The event is jointly
sponsored by the Extension
Services of Florida, Georgia
.'The program is unique
because we've assembled
recognized experts in every
p4ase of catfish production,,
1! ".2 -, -
from financing and market-
ing to water-quality, feed and
nutrition, stress and disease
control and fingerling selec-
tion," says Lindberg.
Catfish farming is big
business in Southeast states
such as Arkansas, Missouri,
Alabama and Mississippi.
Mississippi produces 70 per-
cent of the nation's catfish on
80,000 acres, according to
USDA figures. In the first
three months of 1986, Alaba-
ma growers produced
1,406,000 pounds of the whisk-
ery fish, selling them at an
average wholesale price of 70
cents a pound.
;In. Florida,, catfish .have
long been informally cul--
tured in fresh water lakes
afid rivers, but few Florida
producers have tried them as
a business. The largest exist-
ing catfish farming operation
is a 141 acre farm operated
by Seminole Indians on the
west shore of Lake Okeecho-
"We're so young we don't
even know exactly how many
commercial catfish produc-
ers we have in Florida," says
The active promotion of
catfish by Southeast state
producer groups and the
.r T r :. ;
expanded markets they deve-
loped over the past decade
have encouraged more Flor-
ida producers to explore
catfish farming here, says
Lindberg. He adds that the
catfish market stabilized
several years ago when a
national fast-food chain ad-
ded the regional favorite to
the menu, which in turn
created a demand for a
home-grown product for
Florida palates. Since then,
he says, IFAS county exten-
sion offices have received an
ever-increasing number of
public requests for catfisIh
During the last two years,
IFAS offices have received
over 5,000 aquaculture rela-
ted calls; with over half of
them about catfish. In the
first three months of 1986,
we've gotten more calls than
we did in. all of last year."
says Lindbert. "This.confer-
ence is a response to the kind
of demand we've been get-

THURSDAY, AUGUST 28,1986
Celebrating one's 40th an-
niversary 'indicated a life-
time of commitment. In a
similar fashion, America is
celebrating the 40th anniver-
sary of the National School
Lunch Program a commit-
ment made to the nation's
children in 1946. Through the
school lunch program, our
nation has improved the
health and well-being of
, Americans through the mar-
riage of government, school
food service personnel and
our most important resource
Although various efforts to
feed the nation's children
began in the U.S. as far back
as the 1980's, a school lunch
program never became a
permanent reality until Pres-
/ ident Harry S. Truman signed
the National School Lunch Act
of June 4, 1946.
Any public school of high
school grade level or under is
eligible to participate, as is
any nonprofit private school,
of the same grade levels
whose average yearly tuition
does not exceed $1500 per
student. Today the lunch
program is. available in 95,
percent of all public schools,
with 62 percent of all public
school children participat-
ing. In addition, 29 percent of
all private schools partici-
pate. That allows 92 percent
of all the students in public
and private schools to benefit
from the program.
School lunch is big busi-
ness. In fact, school lunch is
one of the top four largest
food service purveyors in the
nation, in the same league
with McDonalds, Burger
King and Wendy's. Cafete-
rias in about 90,000 schools
all over the country serve
more than 23 million custom-
ers daily. To help accomplish
that feat, the U.S Depart-
ment of/Agriculture provides
$3.5 billion annually in cash
and commodities to partici-
pating schools. In return for
commodity and cash assist-
ance, schools that elect to
participate must meet feder-
al nutritional standards and
must make available free or
reduced-price lunches to chil-
Sdren who qualify. Nation-
wide, about'half the lunches

29 Lives Will be Lost on State's Highways In Holiday
FHP Continuing "Operation SPEED WATCH"Friday Monday to Curb Injuries
The Florida Highway Patrol has
predicted that 29 lives will be lost in traffic
accidents over the 78 hour Labor Day
holiday period beginning 6:00 .p.m.,
Friday, August 29, and ending midnight,
Monday, September 1.
Colonel Bobby R. Burkett, Patrol
Director stated, "Many will take advant-
age of the long week end to travel our
highways visiting beaches, parks, and
o, their vacation spots. Unfortunately, past
experience indicates that some will not
return from their holiday, but instead will
die in a traffic accident on Florida's
Department records revealed last
year's Labor Day period resulted in 33
traffic-related deaths. Of those, 16 (48
percent) were alcohol-related. In compari.-
son, 45 percent of all traffic deaths that
occurred during 1985 were alcohol-related
indicating the incidence of.drinking and
driving ig greater during holiday periods.
Additionally, 16 of the 33 people who died
were under 30 years of age.
The predicted number of deaths could
be greatly reduced if motorists would
comply with the mandatory seat belt law.
Studies have shown traffic deaths could be*
reduced by as much as one-half by public
involvement in the use of seat belts and
child safety seats. Only two of the 21
drivers and passengers killed during the
Labor Day period last year were wearing
their safety belts.
"Every available trooper will be on
patrol duty to help curb the expected loss
of lives. The Patrol will continue its
"Operalion SPEEDWATCH" during this
period using its aircraft to maintain speeds
on a number of highways. Citizens are
requested to assist us in this effort by
reporting any impaired driver they
observe to the nearest Florida Highway
Patrol station or local law enforcement
agency", concluded Burkett.

"They serve as school host-

The cheerleaders start
their year with training

Ramsey said the squad will

through the year to help
defray the tremendous ex-
pense of their operation. "We
will not be begging. We'll

pinch their nostrils closed.
Now you are ready to
IV ventilate. When you first
start ventilations you must
clean out all'the stale deoxy-
genated air from the lungs
and build up good oxygenat-
ed air to be readied for
circulation into the blood-
stream. In order to make this
exchange, you place your
