County Gives Budget Approval
$5,161,101 Financial Plan Requires Levy of 6.888 Mills

iMexico Beach Clinic Opened
Gulf County will have a
budget of $5,164,101 and a
mill rate of 6.888 for fiscal
1986-87. A 16 percent increase
in the taxing rate and the
final budget document was
officially approved Monday
evening, even though opposi-
tion was voiced by several
tax payers in both the public
hearings held to discuss the
Monday night, in a last-
ditch effort to head off the tax
increase, Mrs. Nell Mitchell,
W. W. Barrier and Mrs. Jean
Arnold voiced their opposi-
tion to increasing taxes and
asked that the Commission
reduce the budget enough to
hold the line on taxes.
Chairman Billy Branch fol-
lowed the same theme all
through the meeting, telling
those voicing their dismay at
increasing taxes that the
Commission had done the
best it could do toward
holding spending down. The
Chairman pointed out there
were so many things in the
budget the Commission had

than I have to, but I don't see
where we can lower taxes
any more than we already
In an earlier meeting,
questions were raised about
several expenditures in the
new budget, principally a
new computer system which
was budgeted at $170,000.
The new system will prob-
ably not cost that much,
according to input from the
Board and their computer
planning committee. Another
item of cost in the new budget
was $160,000 for paying off
indigent hospital charges ac-
cumulated over the past
several years. The State of
Florida has now sued for
payment, and the county
must come up with the
money, which was negotiated
for a lesser amount than
what was actually owed.
The tax increase wasn't
much. Millage was hiked by
less than a full mill, but that
creeping rise is coming along
regularly, the visitors to the
hearing complained. They
pointed out that local tax
payers see taxes continuing
to rise .
In addition to the $5,164,101
general budget, the county
levied tax rates on the four
fire districts within the coun-
ty. These levies were impos-
ed on property owners in the
districts only and go to help
pay for fire fighting appara-
tus and expenses in the
The Overstreet district has
a levy of .081 mills; Howard
Creek, .136 mills; St. Joseph,

districts consist of areas in

Heavy Rainfall Overflows Drain Ditches
Culverts were running at capacity and drain ditches
were filled and overflowing the first of this week, as heavy
rains definitely put an end to drought conditions in the Port
St. Joe area. Of course, frequent showers for most of
September had brought some relief to dry conditions
already, but the downpour of Sunday and Monday slacked
the thirst of a parched land.
According to records kept at the Wastewater
Treatment Plant laboratory, the Port St. Joe area has had
nearly four inches of rain since sometime early Monday
morning. According to Tony Barbee, lab operator, their
rain gauge showed 3.75 inches of rain from Monday
through Wednesday morning at 7:00 a.m.
Barbee said the largest amount recorded in the gauge
was at the 7:00 a.m., Monday reading which showed 2.05
inches had fallen during the night. Tuesday morning's
reading showed 1.34 inches since the previous morning and
Wednesday morning, the reading was .36 of an inch.
Decision Due In 10 Days
Raffield Asks for Dismissal of Charges
Gene Raffield, manager of Raffield Fisher-
ies, sa.s he sees the current attempt by the
Department of Natural Resources to take their
operating license as another move to stop
commercial fishermen from using nets in their
trade. "Such a move has all but put the
commercial fishermen out of business in the
state of Texas and now the movement is coming
around the Gulf", Raffield said Tuesday.
Raffield was in court here in Port St. Joe
Monday of this week in an attempt to get charges
against his firm dismissed. Using a battery of
lawyers, the local fish producer claimed the
charges against his firm were based on a law
which was unconstitutional and has never been
enforced since it was first placed on the law
books nearly 30 years ago. "They didn't enforce
it then, I believe, because they knew it was
unconstitutional and unenforceable", Raffield
The charges against the Raffield firm are
that his company had in its possession a quantity
of food fish which had been caught with a purse
seine. Raffield admits this, freely, but says the
circumstances under which the fish were caught
were with complete government approval.
Included in defense of his firm, Raffield
pointed out his boat and several other boats were
participating in a government monitored and
sponsored redfish harvest off the Louisiana
coast. "We were the only ones followed back to
Florida and we were the onlyj ones arrested,
although there were several boats within sight of
ours doing the same thing we were doing."
Raffield also feels his firm is Wbing
harassed by the Department of Natural
Resources of Florida.
Raffield's lawyers, Kenneth Oertel and Syd
McKenzie, attacked the law under which
Raffield was arrested as being unconstitutional,
attacking wording of the law which states any
person can be arrested for possession of food fish
caught in a purse seine anywhere in the world.
The attorneys pointed out this wording could
also include the neighborhood convenience
market or the large super market chains as well
as Raffield. Raffield said his firm had been
catching hundreds of thousands of pounds of
mullet each year for the last 20 to 25 years in
Louisiana and bringing them back to Port St. Joe
for processing "and never a word was said about
it". Raffield said many, many Florida commer-
cial fishermen have done the same thing and not
one arrest has been made.
Oertel posed. the question, "Why single out
the Raffield boats? Could there have been a
Charles McCoy, attorney for the DNR. in his
presentation before the judge asked, "What if
there is? That has nothing to do with breaking or
enforcing the law".
The request for dismissal of the charges
was held before Gulf County Judge David
Taunton, who heard arguments from both sides
before saying he would give his decision within
10 days. That could mean his decision will be
handed down either Wednesday or Thursday of
next week, depending on whether he started his
"clock" running Monday or waited until
Tuesday to begin the waiting period.
If Taunton should rule in favor of Raffield,
DNR has the right to appeal and have the
question go to a higher court. If he rules against
Raffield, the matter will likely be in court late

It's a little more than a month,
now, before we go to the polls to
.answer the questions, do we want
to allow our state-our family
oriented state-to conduct a lottery
in our confines and do we wish to
allow casino gambling to be
conducted in all hotels in the state
'with more than 500 rooms?
These are serious maLers and

tween now and November 4, when
we will decide the matters.
Almost in the background,
behind the big bug-aboo of casino

S lottery. It seems most people have
i-forgotten this hidden albatross, in
their zeal to appear anti-gambling
.--by opposing casino gambling.
-: A question is in the courts now
as to whether or not it is legal to put
the lottery question on the ballot. A
group is claiming some irregular-
ity in procedure and say it should
be removed from the November
ballot because of the manner in
which it is worded.

measure, a chance to vote against

not cost us any taxes in the process.
Our schools will never see
much more than 10 percent of the
i money raised through a lottery.
The percentage may go a little
higher, -but you get the message.
We'll invest millions in lottery
tickets and reap pennies back in
benefits. The remainder will go to
the ticket sellers as their cut for
handling the sales. Winners will

lottery dollar and other expenses

It's our understanding there are
presently 27 states conducting
lotteries as money raisers. Have

Leon Wouldn't Like It
by Kesley Colbert-
I once traded a baseball
card, of Ted Williams to
Jackie Burns for J.W. Port-
er. Jackie drove a hard
bargain-I had to throw in a
Wayne Terwilliger card to
boot. Now, I know what
you're thinking-why J.W.
Porter? I didn't know a thing
about J.W. but I liked his
card. He was a catcher of
sorts for the Washington
Senators and Detroit Tigers
in the early fifties. He never
started, and played rarely.
But this particular card
showed him in full catching
gear and I just liked the card.
You see, I was kinda young
and didn't know much about
Shoot, I was feeling good
when-1I got home that after-
noon and proudly showed my,
new card to my older bro-
ther. He asked what I had to,
give up. When I, told him
nothing but an old card of
Ted Williams he liken'd to
have gone through the ceil-
ing. I -still remember his
exact words. When he came
down Leon gave me his best
and rather calmly said, "You
are absolutely nuts!"
He then set me down and
explained that in- any trade
you need to get at least as
much in return as you give.

Heck, it's worth twenty J.W.
He went on to explain how
difficult it was to acquire a
Ted Williams card. He said
that the bubble gum card
folks didn't make as many
cards of the good players so
you'd have to keep buying
those five card packs hoping
to get "a good player". I
thought about the last pack of
cards I had purchased over
at Pat Houston's grocery
store. The bubble gum was
good as always but my five
cards had been Steve Bilko,
Clyde !luttz, Charlie Silvera,
Elmer Valo and "Toby"
Atwell. Maybe Leon was
smarter than he looked.
He went on to say that
J.W. Porter for Ted Williams
would be Jike trading Herb
Plews for Stan Musial even
up. Well, I'm not that stupid I
thought. Musial was so good
they didn't even issue a card
of him in 1950 or 1951. But,
boy howdy, everyone kept
buying cards in those years
hoping that ble Stan would be
in there. Leon finished this
lecture on the art of trading
by warning me to never,
never touch one of the cards
in his collection. I was so
embarrassed that to this day
I've never told him I had to
throw in Wayne Terwilliger
to complete the deal.

already outlined how little I
know about "trading" but
somehow this doesn't seem

that the guy who has got J.W.

Habits from Childhood
MY OLDER BROTHER is a wealth of information.
Just the other night he called from Atlanta and asked,
"Are you asleep?" I looked at the clock and it was 3:16
a.m. so I said, "I think so. How about you?"
"I just wanted to tell you," he continued, ignoring
my icy reply, "that, as a twig is bent, so shall it grow."
He then hung up in my sleepy ear.
That statement was enough to keep me awake for
about two minutes. The next day, however, I gave con-
siderable thought to it. He had, I think, been into the ic-
ed tea again.
MANY OF US, I THINK, forget just how important
childhood is to us. Things we are exposed to in
childhood, many times, remain with us throughout life.:
I don't know about you, but I know it's true with me.
SOME OF THE THINGS that affect me today that
were prevalent in my childhood are:
1] Phone ringing in the night-A telephone ringing
in the night usually signaled trouble. More often than
not it was an emergency for either us or one of our
neighbors who didn't have a phone. A late night phone
call still scares me today.
2] Sound of a siren-That was something we didn't
hear often. We lived far enough in the country that
there wasn't that many, car accidents and, back then,
doctors made housecalls. When we did hear one,
though, it was serious trouble. I still cringe when'I hear
3) Turn out the light-Don't waste "juice". Elec-
tricity was a relatively new commodity and shouldn't
be wasted. Our light bill. usually ran somewhere
around three or four dollars a month. Now, at night,
our house looks like a giant Christmas tree; that is, un-
til I make my rounds.
4] Never stand behind a horse-And slap him on
the rear. I did one time and he kicked me in the
stomach. If I had been a little closer I would have lived
a life without chirren'. I haven't been close to a horse in
years, but if I were I wouldn't stand behind him.
5] Don't steal apples-Or anything else. I stole one
and my mother caught me-in the act, I never stole
anything after that and always carried a fear of ;per-
6] Close the icebox door-Holding the icebox door
open would melt the ice. Today it makes the "juice"
bill higher. I don't remember Why I liked to stand with
the icebox door open and stare inside but I still like to
do it today.
7] Wear clean underwear-It didn't matter that we
didn't have shoes to wear or holes in our jeans. If you
had an accident, the first thing they checked at the
hospital was your underwear, to see if it was clean Or
not. Give me clean underwear or none at all.
8] Don't waste food-People in China would love to
have that food. Send it to them, I wanted to say. I dared
not, for fear of Mr. Persimmon Switch. I am now thirty
pounds overweight, if that tells you anything. I still
hate to-seerfood wasted. .- -.- .- ..

dose of Black Draught I thought I was going.to die. I
think I almost did. I haven't seen any Black Draught in
years.. .1 hope I never do again.
10] Castor Oil-Give me a beating, tie me to a post
outside during an electrical storm, put me in a viper pit
without a BB gun or slingshot, but don't give me a dose
of Castor Oil. Castor Oil makes Black Draught taste
like ice cream. The results, however, are about the

"Nobody is supposed to go

to do so. "Whoever went in

Dead to be Ordered Soon
Jim Sealey, Gulf County Service
Officer, said this week the drive to raise
money to erect a monument to Gulf
County's war dead in the nation's last
three wars is nearing completion and he
anticipates placing the order to have the
monument built in the next few days.
"That doesn't mean we have the
money in hand", Sealey said. "It means
we NEARLY have enough money to pay
for the monument and we're asking
people who have made pledges to turn in
their money and those who wish to
contribute to do so in the next few days.
We still need a couple thousand dollars to
finish paying for the monument, but
we're near enough to raising the money
to place the order".
Sealey said the monument will
contain the names of all county veterans
who were killed in World War II, the
Korean War and the Vietnam War. The
monument will be erected in front of the
Gulf County Courthouse. *

"Need Mandatory Sentences to Control Drug Dealers"
"What the fight against illegal
drugs needs more than anything else
is a stiff mandatory sentence law
'against pushers", Sheriff Al Harrison
told the Rotary Club last Thursday.
Speaking on the drug problem in the
United States and particularly Gulf
County, Sheriff _Harrison said the
growing problem 'in our nation will
only get worse, so long as dealers can
make a tremendous profit with only a
slight chance he will ever spend time
in jail for dealing.
"Drugs, and crack cocaine are
definite serious threats to Gulf
County", Sheriff Harrison said.
,"Right now, we don't have too many
drugs in our county, but with the
availability and comparative cheap-
ness of crack cocaine, the drug has the
possibility of becoming a real problem
to our county, just as it has with
others", Harrison said.
The speaker said the crack
cocaine could be the most dangerous
drug of all those which have been
introduced in recent years. "It doesn't
cost much, so it is readily available,
but it doesn't last very long, either.
The biggest danger from crackle
cocaine is that after taking three
"hits" of the substance, you're
addicted to it, and becoming addicted
is accompanied by a few brain cells
being destroyed every time it is
The speaker said the new drug
which is drawing so much official
attention because of its danger, is
about the size and shape of a piece of
ice cream salt-. It is smoked in a pipe
or a converted soft drink can. The
substance sells for $5.00 to $10.00 per
piece and a piece gives a "high"
which lasts from seven to ten minutes.
"Dependence on crack has sent
the burglary statistics soaring",
Harrison said. "While the high lasts
for seven to ten minutes, the user may
smoke the substance eight or ten
times a day. This gets expensive.
While using the drug, the user doesn't
want to work, so he must steal in order
to get money to buy his supply".
"A user is going to steal or deal to
support his habit", the Sheriff said.
In the world of dealing, the Sheriff
said Senator Lawton Chiles is the only
big name law-maker who has come
out with a program to counteract the
drug. "Still, we need the support of the
public, pressuring state and national
lawmen to come up with a mandatory
penalty for dealing. Dealing is highly
profitable, and the first offense
penalty is usually probation for
usually a year. This means a dealer is
told, after making thousands while he
was in business, that he must not be
caught doing anything wrong for a
year." The Sheriff pointed out such a
penalty wasn't much of a deterrent fbr
a person entering the drug dealing
"Our community needs to get
enraged with our state and national
law enforcement about this matter",
Harrison said. He pointed out that
crack is easily obtainable, cheap,
easy to use, but, "It cannot be
experimented with. It's probably the
most dangerous drug of all and we
need to use all our resources to control
