Fifth Victim


Arthur Gaskin Killed When

Log Truck Overturns On 98


Arthur Jefferson Gaskin, 54, of Blounts-
town became Gulf County's fifth traffic
fatality of the year Monday morning, when
his log truck overturned on Highway 98
about two miles east of Port St. Joe.
According to the Gulf County Sheriff's
Department, Gaskin was pinned in his
overturned truck and part of his load of logs
for over an hour before his body could be
removed by rescue workers.
Mike White, Sheriff's Department
spokesman said it appeared Gaskin lost
c, control of the loaded truck. as it was
approaching Port St. Joe on the long
sweeping curve just before reaching the
C-30 intersection. He applied bra Is 'to
control thetruck and the brakes bn the
trailer locked, causing the loaded rig to,
overturn in the middle of the highway. The
tractor came to rest upside down with
Gaskin pinned inside. Part of the load of logs
covered the overturned truck.
Unofficial reports were that Gaskin was
still alive after the crash, but he died before
he could extricated from the vehicle.
White said the truck overturned about


10:45 and 30 minutes later a second log truck
came around the curve and ran up on the
accident, unable to stop.
"Rudolph James Kirkland of Wewa-
hitchka narrowly escaped a serious accident
when his tractor ran up on the spilled logs
and came to a halt", White said. "His only
damage was to the underside of his tractor
and the corner of my vehicle where his truck
bumped it", White said. White had parked
his car on the roadside with the warning
.lights flashing.
White said, ."We had an extremely
dangerous situation .to other people for
about two hours", White said. "There was
gasoline all over the place, the accident was
on a long curve and the entire highway was
blocked with logs. We're lucky somebody
else didn't get hurt, bad, in stopping to
sight-see or in insisting on coming by the
accident even though we had a detour set up
for traffic to go around".
The highway was finally cleared and
traffic resumed about 2:00 p.m. Monday
afternoon. .


Arthur Gaskin became Gulf County's fifth traffic fatality of the year in this truck blocked traffic on Highway 98 for nearly three hours after it overturned
pile-up on Highway 98 about two miles east of Port St. Joe. The overturned Ti furverneaq 'ite l, -30 intersection.

Pickett said again the people weren't

A M B LANCE SERVICE
Ambulance service for south Gulf County
will be operated from Gulf Pines Hospital
starting October 1.
An agreement was reached by the County
Commission and Gulf Pines Hospital for
handling the service at a fee to the county.
Gulf Pines administrator David Odum,
presented the Commission with an agreement
which spelled out the Hospital would receive
$100,000 per year to provide the service. The
county had budgeted nearly $130,000 to operate
the system themselves.
-- G-uirPifes will also realize money received
from ambulance ser' ice charges and the county
.will keep three dependable vehicles available for
the service.
Gulf Pines will maintain the same charges
as set by the county, furnish service to the same
areas as the county, re-imburse the county for
vehicle insurance costs and will pay all
maintenance costs up to $300 per occurrence.
The ambulance vehicles will be stationed at
Gulf Pines Hospital beginning October 1, when
the new agreement goes into effect.
Odum said the hospital had committed itself

Stolen Items Recovered


Mexico Beach police department re-
covered several stolen items this past week
which had been removed from three boats
which were docked at Marquardt's Marina,
Inc., on August 10. According to Police Chief
Jeff Sellers, the recovered items were all
but one which had been reported as stolen in
the break-in.

Recovered by the department were a
caliber Thompson machine gun, a Marlin
magnum rifle, .38 special pistol, a box of .3
bullets, two .45 caliber rifle clips, a sock
wrench set and a three-man life raft.

Sellers said there have been no arrest
made yet in the thefts.


his Several years ago, federal
La- revenue sharing came along
notes and it was considered the
best thing to come along
since instant mashed pota-
toes. This year, it is being
phased out and county and
city governments are.having
to get used to peeling pota-
toes again and the tax paying
public is having to get used to
making up the difference in
revenue. d
Gulf County is finding it's
much easier to figure out a
place to put extra money
than it is to figure out how to
perform the same service
with less money. As a result
of the cut-back in revenue
sharing funds and unexpect-
ed large chunks of expenses,
the county finds itself in the
position of having to increase
its property tax take by 18.66
percent in one year.
The first hearing on the
budget was held last Thurs-
day evening in the Court-
house with about a dozen tax
payers attending to ask ques-
tions, mostly about the in-
creased tax load.
A part of this increased tax
load could probably be caus-
ed by a $170,000 item the
county has placed in its
budget for the coming fiscal
year .to purchase a new
computer system to serve
every office in the court-
e house.
The system will meet state
requirements for the offices
of Tax Collector and Proper-
ty Appraiser, as well as
replace old and worn-out
45 systems in the Clerk's office
44 and smaller installations in
357 other offices. All Tax Collec-
;et tor and Property Appraiser
notices, work and records
must be kept in a uniform
sts manner designed by the state
and will eventually be con-


nected in a state-wide hook-
up. The proposed system will
comply with these state
requirements. /
Rex Buzzett and Jean
Arnold asked for information
about the computer pur-
chase, questioning plans for
future expense with the sys-
tem. It was explained the
system was the result of
nearly a year of study and
planning by a committee and
experts in the field so there
would be no surprises down
the road.
Other items affecting the
county budget are increased
insurance premiums of near-
ly $40,000 for Workman's
Compensation and an overall
increase of approximately 30
percent in other policies,
chiefly liability insurance.
The county has resisted
payment for medical ser-
vices to indigent patients in
other counties and are now
stuck with payment of $165,-
000 in payments for these
cases.


Overall, the county faces a
budget of $5,197,678; calling
for a levy of 6.888 mills, or an
increase of nearly a full mill
over last year's levy of 5.915.
The final hearing on the
county budget will be Mon-
day evening at 7:00 p.m. in
the Courthouse.
The entire itemized budget


plan can be found printed on
pages 14 and 15'of this week's
issue of The Star.

Monday, with the City of Port
St. Joe also conducting their

Robinson reported the final election
count the first of the week, giving the
official totals after all absentees had
been counted and vote totals certified.
The final tally didn't change any of
the trends set at the end of the voting

Than

Thursday of last week, we had
a warning from Moammar Gadhafi
Sfthat he was going to defeat the
'United States. We don't know how
he's going to do it, but he made the
.threat.
If we had been listening close
-enough, we might have received
:.notice he was expecting to turn his
.terrorists loose again Friday mor-
;;ning, after nearly a four month
:silence. About the only thing we
heard was the bombastic ravings of
-.:a lunatic, intent on making himself
big man in his world by once
.,again tweaking the nose of the
industrial l giant of the United
..States.
-' It wouldn't be so sad if it hadn't
been U.S. know-how and U.S.
'dollars which put the shirt on his
:.back and the roasted goat in the
:i1llies of his countrymen.

Gadblafi, like many of the near
east potentates, have earned their
..position from oil production. Most
.of the production was set into
= motion by American know-how and
more than a few gallons were
-:-purchased directly by this country
'With good old U.S. dollars.
In his speech Thursday, before

"liigned nations in Zimbabwe,
.Gadhafi screamed that his country

Niot leave any stone unturned in the

Everyone in the State of
Qi a, expected a light vote last;
69sday, even or own Supervisor
,Zof Elections, Cora Sue Robinson.
E But, it didn't happen here in
TGulf County to quite the extent as
wvas expected. Gulf County's elec-
tors went to the polls in respectable
:-numbers, after hearing of the
Predictions and performance of
other counties in the state. A nearly
70 percent turn-out Tuesday in an
off year election is something for us
to crow about here in Gulf County.
Before the day of balloting,
interest in the election seemed to
be just a point or two above zero. It
was so bad at times, the candidates
were politicking each other just to
see some interest generated. We're
sure they were engulfed in disap-
pointment from the lack of enthus-
iasm. But, to have voters turn out
in respectable numbers after all
that lack of enthusiasm was surely



Losing A Stat

I CAN IMAGINE there were some ir
disappointed people in and around ca
Florida late Tuesday night. I can of
imagine there were some disappoint- o:
ed people even in Gulf County about 10 m
or 11 p.m., Tuesday of last week.
Some people won and some had to
lose the elections we had here in the
county and the state last Tuesday.
Unfortunately, there are usually more
losers than there are winners in an r
election. In one sense of the word,
Sthats good. At least all the losers have
; plenty of company in their situation.
There is usually a sympathetic ear to
bend or an understanding shoulder to
cry on immediately after an election.
SAdmittedly, those who lose de- th
serve sympathy and understanding
just after he has lost an election. A ca
: campaign, even in a small county like ti(
O ulf County, involves a considerable cl
investment of time and money trying ar
to get elected to office. Then, when the dc
voters say, "no" to your efforts, it is a m
tremendous let-down, even if you p
understand what forces or reasons


kept you from getting elected.
We see very few get defeated here

was initiated into action when
terrorists hijacked a Pan Am plane
in Pakistan, took over control of the
passengers and crew and ultimate-
ly shot over a hundred of the
passengers indiscriminately when
lights went out in the plane while
sitting on the ground.
That's sick!
Even for Moammar Gadhafi,
that's sick!
As of this writing, there was no
proof the terrorists were a part of
Gadhafi's gang, but when we hear
the threat one day and see the
happening the next, it's hard not to
put two and two together and -come
up with a Libyan answer.
If this latest foray in the name
of "peace" by the terrorists results
in a second raid against Libya by
U.S. airplanes, we suppose the
world will once again exercise its
short memory of what happened
this week in order to be able to
thumb its nose at the U.S. for being
indignant enough to do something
about it.
The only good coming out of the
whole situation, if anything can be
called "good" where so many lives
are threatened, it's that many of
the so-called non-aligned nations
were indignant at Gadhafi's words
and threats. They publicly de-
nounced the Libyan mad-man's
diatribe. A few years ago, the
world would have heard cheers
rather than bronx cheers for words
such as those uttered by Gadhafi
last Thursday.
Do you suppose the worm is
being roasted rather than toasted?

Hunker Down with Kes




We're Still Together


by Kesley Colbert-


"I don't know" Ricky said
as he turned up the collar on
his jean jacket to help fight
the cold wind off his neck.
Boy, it was getting cold.
"Early winter" I had heard
my Dad say. We had left the
house an hour or so ago and
had been "just playing"
back in the woods. It began


to turn colder so we dropped
down in the big ditch to kinda
get in out of the wind. It
hadn't helped much cause
my ears were beginning to
numb a little. We could have
gone back to the house and
warmed up but I guess we
just didn't think of that.
"Hadn't given it much


thought" Ricky added. Yogi
had asked us what we were
going to "be" when we grew
up. Well, you've got to talk
about something when
you're huddled up down at
the big ditch freezing your
ears off. Of'course as I turn-
ed the question over in my
mind I had to agree with


Ricky I hadn't thought
much about it either. Shucks
I was too busy being eleven
to think about being twelve.
And getting old, say like
twenty-five or so was so far
down the road that a person
couldn't even think that far
ahead.
We pondered our in-


d Vote!


a refreshing sight in our county.
WEr ure none of us voted 100
perce fo winners, butat least we.
can say a"respectable majority of
the voters had their say on election
day and the majority elected our
winners, and co-winners here in
Gulf County,.
Having three out of ten of our
registered voters fail to go to the
polls is certainly nothing to be
overly proud of, but it's a better
percentage casting their votes than
at several times in past years. In
other words, we have seen much
worse performances.
While we deplore the fact 30
percent plus didn't vote, we would
be more upset if our county were to
have the problems they had in Leon'
County this past Tuesday. Even
more we would hate to be in the
shoes of the Leon County Supervi-
sor of Elections, however you
pronounce his name.


place to that one and forgetting an
evening at home, relaxing with some
good entertaining reading or watching
a TV show. It must be a crushing blow
for one to have to take.
I thought of this situation even
more than usual this year, because I
voted for a person who didn't even
make the run-off in the Governor's
race.
I voted for Harry Johnston, and he


it must be to Harry Johnston to have it
all come down to the point where he
has nothing left. The race is over for
him.
Those of us who voted for him or
any of the other losers, also face the
trauma (though not as pronounced) of
having.to make up our mind between
Jim Smith and Steve Pajcic.
Before the election, when I was
trying to make up my mind about


dividual futures a few
moments in silence before
Jim Bob spoke up, "I'll tell
you one thing for sure I'm
a'getting out of the farming
business the day I graduate
from school I'm gone. No
more hauling hay and chop-
ping cotton for me. And no
more cleaning out that barn
either. I'm a'telling my Dad,
"Here, Dad, from now on
shovel out your own barn!"
We all got a chuckle out of
that last sentence 'cause we
all knew that if Jim Bob
made a statement like that
to Mr. Harris, why, he'd
make Jim Bob eat that
shovel. "Be realistic Jim
Bob" I said. Then I added "I
guess I'll be a big league
baseball player."
"You gonna play for St.
Louis?" Yogi asked.
"Shoot, I wouldn't play for
anyone else." I told the
honest truth.
"Well" Buddy spoke for
the first time, "I suppose
that I could play for the
Cards, too. We might as well
stick together."
Now, we kinda figured that
Buddy might have hit upon
something there. So as we
huddled down in the big ditch
we decided that whatever we
were to do in life we would do
it together.
We discussed the possibili-
ty of the army and we quick-
ly agreed that if one of Vs got
drafted the we'd all "get
drafted". We decided that if
one of us had to go to college
then we'd all go to the same
college. Ricky said that we
might go into business
together. Jim Bob asked how
do you "go into business?"
Heck, I didn't know either.
"Gosh, it,s cold" Yogi
said.
"What about getting mar-
ried?" Jim Bob asked.
"Well, I don't think we can
all marry the same girl" I
said.
"Do you have to get mar-
ried?" Ricky wanted to
know.
"I'm freezing!"
"LaRenda is big."
"Reckon' we can talk her
into marrying all of us?"
-The wimdt-as hwing yt
then.'Still we didn't go home.
We spent the rest of the day
down at the ditch planning to
spend our lives together. To
be best of friends forever.
You know I often think
back to that day, that ditch,
and my first thoughts of
what I wanted to "be".
Shucks we didn't miss it by
much. Yogi is a dentist in
Erin, Tennessee. Ricky
works with an environmen-
tal agency in North Carolina.
Buddy teaches school and
coaches girls basketball
over in Henry, Tennessee.
Jim Bob's father died just a
couple of years after our
meeting in the ditch. Jim
Bob is today doing what he
has been doing since he was
sixteen years old taking
care
of his mother and running

e-wide Election Has to be A Highly Traumatic Experience


n Gulf County simply because the
candidate is just too sorry or too much
f a rascal for the voters to approve
f. Neither does defeat at the polls
nean one candidate has more friends


TA


an another candidate does. In most
ses, it is because of name recogni-
n, or because one person comes in
oser contact with more people each
id every day than another candidate
oes. In other words, one candidate is
ore intimately known by 'more
iople than another candidate is.

I WONDER HOW a state-wide
ndidate, running for Governor, for


instance, feels after he has spent a
million or two, spent every waking
hour talking about getting elected for
the better part of a year and spending
the entire time on the run from this


was the third man in the race. He
doesn't get a second try at the brass
ring, but he has still spent the money
and the time.
I can imagine how disappointing


which candidate to vote for, I had one
person tell me, "Well, I'll tell you; I'm
going to hold my nose and vote for Jim
Smith". That wasn't much of an
endorsement for Jim Smith, but the
man has apparently satisfied a lot of
other people in the Panhandle as well.
Then, I read Mary Ann Lindley's
column in the Democrat Wednesday
on Smith's reaction to the election
process last Tuesday night, and from
what I have learned over the past few
months, plus seeing how Smith
reacted to the stress of waiting for an
election decision, I made up my mind
to vote for him .in the second
primary-without holding my nose.
ELECTIONS ARE A funny thing
aren't they? People get all excited
about elections who can't seem to stir
up even a weak "hallelujah" in
church or a come up with even a
single word of support for a family
member in a tough situation.
I see people going overboard in
support of candidates who wouldn't
give up their afternoon off for any
other reason on earth. Their free time


is their own time unless there is an
election to work in.
If election time didn't come
around periodically, some people just
wouldn't get excited about anything at
all and spend their entire life in the
hum-drum situation of going to work,
going home to eat and going to bed at
night to sleep. A big adventure would
be going to the river for an occasional
afternoon of fishing.
For that reason, I guess elections
are nice to have around every two
years, if to do nothing else but blow
the cobwebs out of the excitement.
centers of some people.
I HAVEN'T YET FIGURED out
what makes most people run for
office, but I'm glad they do. It gives us
a unique system of government--one
we can change every two to four years
if we don't like the way things are
going.
Here in America we're quick to do
that. At times, we vote good men out
of office with our system, but that's
better than not being able to get rid of
bad ones.

Some Good Ideas
ONE NIGHT MY brother and I were sitting around
drinking a glass of iced tea when he suddenly came out
with a very profound statement. He suddenly pro-
claimed, "Ideas are a dime a dozen but one that works
is priceless!"
I don't know if he made that up or read it
somewhere, but I thought it made a lot of sense. Maybe
it was the tea that went to his head.
0. 0 0 $
WHEREVER THE STATEMENT came from, it
started me thinking. It wasn't long after that, that I
had compiled a list of ideas that I thought was magnifi-
clent. I decided the best thing to do was put these ideas
to work. That thought gave me another idea that I
thought was the best idea of all. That idea was to run
for public office, then, when elected, I could better put
my ideas before the public and have a better chance of
having them accepted.
I would like to share a couple of these ideas with
you and see what you think.
a *
GEORGE TAPPER WAS responsible for my first
idea. George was a man of vision and perserverance
and will be sadly missed for a long time in our town,
county, state and nation. It was his idea about the
Highland View bridge that gave birth to my idea.
Why not build a bridge from Highway 98,
somewhere around but not close to the Wonder Bar, to
Cape San Bias? It would, of course, have to be a high-
rise bridge so the ships could pass under and get to the
port in Port St. Joe, but that should be no problem.
We need a bridge to Cape San Blas! Have you ever
driven from Panama City, through Mexico Beach, go,
ing to Cape San Blas and look over from any place
close to e Wond Bar? The nder? Th Cape is just a "stone's
throw" from there, but can you get there from that
point? No sir! You must drive all the way through Port
St. Joe, past both red lights, out of town and about ten
miles down C-30 to the cut-off. It's another ten miles or
so to the state park from there.
ANOTHER IDEA I HAD was to expand the St. Joe
International Airport. We need that runway expanded
so airplanes can land and take off without risking body
and soul of everyone aboard. Also, have you ever
thought of what would happen if a 747 experienced pro-
blems and had to force land short of Panama City or
SPensacola? If the pilot set it downthere now, he would
wipe out Jones Homestead or the country club.
Admittedly, expanding the airport would create
Some problems. The runway would go right through
the country club golf course, directly at the clubhouse.
There would be slight problems with play on No. 17 and
No. 18.
Golfers would be forced to play No. 17 as a dog-leg
right or hope for a "country club" bounce off the run-
way. On No. 18, they would have to play short of the
runway or try to drive over it. They could always play
Sfo0 de ni4dl of MSe, runway and Jhope. the.. qun..
e l ond t
i''unwaywould-have to be elevated slightly to pass over
the clubhouse. This might create a bit of noise when
planes were taking off or landing, but, what the heck,
it's usually noisy in there anyway. I would think the bar
business would pick up considerably.
.* .*
THESE ARE JUST two of my ideas. As my brother
said, they are a dime a dozen. You may never know the
rest of them because I lost the election.

Raffield Fisheries will be in court here

The charges stemmed from Raffield partii

"We'll be attempting to get the case tossed

St. Vincent National Wild-'

show signs of recovery from
the damage inflicted by
hurricanes Elena and Kate
last year, according to Terry
Carroll, assistant manager of
the Reserve. In speaking to
the Kiwanis Club Tuesday,
Carroll said extensive dam-
age was inflicted on the
island refuge to both vegeta-
tion and animal life. "Both

ing to their former state',
she told Kiwanians.
One of the most devastated
features on the island were
the fresh water fish lakes. All
the lakes were damaged and
the entire population of fresh
water fish was destroyed by
the storms. "We are begin-

Football will begin here in Gulf' County
Friday night, when the Sharks of Port St. Joe
meet the Gators of Wewahitchka in the season
opener for both teams. Game time will be at 8:30
Port St. Joe time, in Wewahitchka.
Last year, the Sharks took an experienced
team into the game and the Gators were in a
re-building situation. This year, the situation is
reversed with the Gators fielding nine offensive
and eight defensive starters from last year's
squad. The Sharks will field four players off last
year's squad.
Experience usually doesn't mean a whole lot
when the Sharks and Gators get together. Both
teams usually run on emotion as they compete
for the county championship trophy.
Port St. Joe will be starting a two platoon
system this year, using' only a minimum of
players both ways, and then only in special
situations. The Sharks are big .this year, but
inexperience is expected to blunt some of this
weight advantage, at least for a while.
Starting on offense for the Sharks Friday
night will be Jason Hammac at tight end; Marty
Williams, right tackle; Lee Parker, right guard;
Jamie Vathis, center; Tommy Ford, left guard;
Tracy Browning, left tackle; Ken Monette, Bob
Quarles and Eric Langston at wide receiver;
Tim Wilder, quarterback and Nicholas Rolack
and Mike-Byrd at running back.
Defensively, it will ,be Leonard Ray and
Terrance Farmer at end; Greg Linton and Tracy
Sanders, guards; Joe Norton, David Williams,
Kevin Dawson, Bink Norton and Robert Ramsey


Kevin Dawson, Mickey Gainnie, Tommy Ford, Tom Humphreys, Joe Norton, Robert
Ramsey, Kevin Bradley, Steve Gibson and Tracy Browning; coaches Scott Gowan, Phil
Lanford and Duane McFarland. Back row; Mike Ramsey, Tracy Sanders, Marty Williams,
Leonard Ray, Ivey Henderson, Chris Revell, Terrance Farmer, Ross Yowell, Greg Linton,
Bob Quarles and Jason Hammac.



. In Wewa Friday


at linebacker; Darrin Callaway, safety and
Terry Quinn, Carl White and Tony Lee at
defensive halfback.
New head coach, Phil Lanford said, "The
key to. this year's team will be whether or not
they pull together and play as a team. They need
to join behind each other and play together".
The new coach said the team has spent a lot
of time this week trying to correct the mistakes
made in last Friday's jamboree game in
Panama City. "We have done a lot of work on our
kicking game and hope it pays off Friday night",
Lanford said.
Lanford emphasized the problem of inexper-
ience and youth, but said th team has practiced
hard and is 'looking forward to getting into a
game situation.
GATORS EXPERIENCED
The Gator squad, even though it is small in
numbers has a sizeable corps of experienced
players returning to the gridiron this year,
according to coach Dennis Kizziah, who is
starting his second year as the head Gator.
Kizziah said his team has nine of last year's
offensive team returning this year and eight
from the defensive squad, which went 8-2 last
year. Included in one of these losses was a defeat
at the hand of the Sharks.
Starting at offense Friday night will be
Stacey Driggers at center; Rusty Wood and Brad
Attaway at guard; John Dady and John

That's right! When Jim Walter Homes is your builder, you
pay no money down, unless you want to. But you never
pay points, closing costs or other fees that add to the
cost of financing your new home When the expense of
all these items is totaled, it's like adding to the rate of
financing. This could add 2 or 3 percent. even more.

you believe to be a low financing rate might actually
be substantially higher than my low fixed-mortgage
financing that has no closing costs or other fees
added on.

Open Weekends
Jim Walter Homes is open daily and on weekends. Come
in. Let us show you our display models. Let us tell you
how we build on your property up to 90% complete. We
finish the outside. Then you finish as much or as little of
the inside as you like. The more you do for yourself, the
more money you'll save. We build homes with two, three
or four bedrooms, one or two-bath models. There's one to
suit your family's dream of a new home.
Choose your home from the more than 20 models
available. Tell us how much finishing work you want to
do and let us quote you the exact cost and your exact
monthly payment for the home of your choice. We can
begin construction almost immediately, almost anywhere

of crimes committed were
still very small from January


tQ June of this year.
For instance, neither the
county or the city showed any
prostitution charges being
made for the first six months
of this year. There were no
murders and no rapes. Only
one robbery was reported to
June of this year, but of
course, that situation has
changed here in the city since
June 1. Three burglaries
were reported in the City and


12 in the county during the
first six months of the year.
Most of the increase in the
crime index of Gulf County
and Port St. Joe was from
driving while intoxicated.
This charge, which dr,-ws
stiff state penalties, increas-
ed in Port St. Joe from seven
the first six months of last
year to nine over the same
time period this year. The


county had an increase from
39 to 46 over the same period. '
Aggravated assault was
the big increase in crime in
Port St. Joe. In 1985, one case
was reported in the first six
months. In 1986, six cises
were reported for a 500
percent increase. The mis-
cellaneous crime incidents
increased from one in 1986 to
seven in 1986, for an increase
of 600 percent; two categor-


ies which ruined Port St.
Joe's total percentage. While
the major crime incidents
dropped, these three categor-
*ies-DWI, aggravated as-
sault and miscellaneous were
responsible for increases in
crime percentages.
In the county, aggravated
assault remained constant at
nine: DWI increased from 391
to 46 cases and miscellaneous
from 37 to 85 cases for the


Coach Lanford Says It'llbe Building Year


Head football',coach Phil
Lanford spoke td the Rotary
Club last Thursday, telling
them the football prognosis
for Port St. Joe this season
depends on a lot of things if
fans are expecting a super
season.
Lanford said the team this
season will be re-building
from two super seasons and a
decimation of a state cham-
pion squad by graduation.
"We have only 14 seniors on
bur squad this year and only
seven of these have ever
played in a varsity football
game before. Only four were
starters last year".
Lanford said Port St. Joe
will be fielding 47 players this


year on its. varsity squad,
"which will be a plus for us in
seasons to come, but this
year is pretty much up for
grabs, since most of the
teams we play have a fair
nucleus of their last year's
team returning".
The Coacn pointed to De-
Funiak Springs in particular.
The Braves were state cham-
pions last year and have
practically the same team
this year. He also pointed to
teams like Monticello, Boni-
fay and Wakulla, who are
expected to be loaded this.
season.
"We'll be different this
year", Lanford said. "We're
going to play two complete


squads, For the most part,
we will have no players going
both ways except in isolated
incidents. We have only one
Returning starter on offense
and three returning starters
on defense and a quarterback
who has' never seen a snap
from center in a game
situation, but we expect a lot
of development as the year
progresses".
"We're starting from
scratch with boys from the
ninth through the twelfth
grades. We'll be using a lot of
players, but the system
should encourage more boys
to come out for the squad
because they will have a
better chance of- getting to


play some."
Lanford said the squad had
some big boys and plenty of
talent. "We're just short on


experience,, but this will
comeI We expect it to be a
tough' but interesting season
here in Port St.' Joe."
