Melvin Gets 3 Life Prison
Defense Attorney Announces Decision to File Appeal of Verdict
Clyde Melvin, convicted of killing
three people in the Gulf County
Courthouse in July, 1987, will spend
the rest of his life in the state prison.
Judge Carl Harper passed sentence on
Melvin Wednesday morning, giving
him three life sentences and one for 25
years, structured so he has no chance
of ever being released on parole.
Judge Harper had been studying
the penalty assessed by a Pensacola
jury on September 21, giving Melvin
life in prison for the murder of Circuit
Judge W. L. Bailey. Melvin was
sentenced to life terms for the killing
of attorney Tom Ingles and Peggy
White Paulk, sister of his estranged
wife, Inez Huckeba. Judge Harper
sentenced Melvin to 25 years for the
attempted murder of Huckeba.
Counts two, three and four will
run concurrently with each other but
consecutively to the life sentence
imposed in count one. The imposing of
the sentences will give Melvin 50
years in prison before he can be
considered for parole.
INTENT TO APPEAL
Immediately after the sentencing
by Judge Harper, defense attorney
Henry Barksdale stated his intention
to appeal the verdict.
Barksdale called for what he
described as public support for Melvin
when he asked for a show of hands
supporting Melvin in his endeavor to
escape a death penalty. Barksdale
had argued and presented evidence at
Melvin's trial that he was mentally ill
at the time, although not insane, and
thus not responsible for his actions at
Judge Harper read his decision in
the matter of the sentence, from a
12-page typed opinion Wednesday
morning, following a pre-sentence
hearing on Tuesday.
Judge Harper had. the option of
over-ruling the Pensacola jury and
imposing the death penalty for the
killing of Judge Bailey. His sentencing
guidelines Wednesday concurred with
the jury decision from the trial.
In Tuesday's session, Judge Har-
per had denied a motion for a new
trial, presented by defense attorneys.
Before reading his decision,
Judge Harper stated, "I extend my
sympathies to the Bailey, Ingels,
Paulk and Melvin families in this
matter, but I cannot let sympathy
play a part in my decision".
Harper read from his verdict
report, as follows:
"As to count one of the indict-
ment, it is the sentence of the law and
the judgement of the court that Clyde
Melvin, for the crime of first degree
premeditated murder upon W.L.
Bailey, shall be committed to the
Department of Corrections of the
State of Florida to be punished by life
imprisonment without possibility of
parole for twenty-five years.
"As to count two of the indictment
it is the sentence of the law and the
judgment of the court that Clyde
Melvin, for the crime of second degree
murder with a firearm upon Thomas
B. Ingles, shall be committed to the
Department of Corrections of the
State of Florida to be punished by life
imprisonment without parole.
"As to count three of the indict-
ment, it is the sentence of the law and
the judgment of the court that Clyde
Melvin, for the crime of second degree
murder with a firearm upon Peggy
White Paulk, shall be committed to
the Department of Corrections of the
State of Florida to be punished by life
imprisonment without parole.
"As to count four of the indict-
ment, it is the sentence of the law and
the judgment of court that Clyde
Melvin, for the crime of attempted
first degree premeditated murder
upon Inez Huckeba, shall be commit-
ted to the Department of Corrections
of the State of Florida to be punished
by imprisonment for twenty-five
years without parole.
"Each sentence imposed in
counts two, three and four shall run
concurrently with each other but
consecutively to the life sentnece
imposed in count one. The defendant,
Clyde Melvin, shall be given credit
from July 28, 1987 through and
including October 19, 1988 on all four
sentences for the time served in
various county jails awaiting trial and

Bids were examined and a
contract let to Churchwell, Inc., a
Callaway construction firm this week,
in the amount of $68,607.
Churchwell was present at the
Tuesday night City Commission meet-
ing and accepted the job, even though
. his bid was considerably'lower than
the other three bids received. Church-
well, said, "I was a little dubious
myself, when I saw the other bids, but
I have re-checked my figures and they
came out just as I thought I had
figured the first time. I hate to leave
all that money on the table, but it's
easier to figure close after the bid.
Doing it before they are opened is
hard to do if you want the job".
Other bids for the job ranged from
$127,300 to $292,792.
Churchwell is to begin construc-
tion within 30 days and has 60 days to
complete the project.
The work includes laying mains
from Garrison Avenue east on 10th
Street to Knowles Avenue. A lift
station is included in the bid, which
will help to maintain an even flow of
sewage in the area. Sewage was not
run to the block-long section of 10th
Street when it was first opened
because the difficulty of achieving
acceptable flow was so expensive the
city couldn't afford it at the time.

Sunday Fire Damages Merchant Home
Mr. and Mrs. Bill Merchant of 108
Mimosa Drive, had gone to Tallahas-
see Sunday afternoon to pick up their
granddaughter to bring her home with
them for a few days' visit. While they
were away, their home caught fire
and was heavily damaged Sunday af-
ternoon. A day which started out with
the expectation of spending a few
happy days, ended in tragedy.
According to Port St. Joe fire
chief, Brent Etheridge, the fire, was
discovered at approximately 2:30 by
Ted Cannon, the Merchants' back
door neighbor, when he saw smoke
coming from the house. Knowing the
Merchants were not at home, he went
to investigate and notified the fire
Etheridge said the fire apparently
started in a utility room at the rear of
the home. "Apparently the furnace
heater mis-fired and caused the fire",
Firemen kept the blaze contained
in the utility.room and the adjoining
kitchen of the home, but Etheridge
said the whole house suffered from
intense smoke damage.
The fire chief said he had no idea
as to the amount of monetary damage
to the home.

opened up for construction.
TO ASSIST REEF
Bill Koran, operator of the Dive
Shop here in Port St. Joe came armed
with a letter from the State of Florida,
pledging assistance in the amount of
$20,000 toward establishment of a
fishing reef off St. Joseph Peninsula if
'the city would pledge $6,700 in
matching funds or in-kind expendi-.
Koran said he had researched the
proposal extensively and said the
state would accept automobiles,
appliances, tires and several other
items as raw material to build the reef
if they were properly prepared in
advance. "This preparation is what,
we want to get the city involved in,
either through hiring people to
prepare the debris to make up the
reef, or using city employees to do the
job", Koran said.
Koran said his suggestion would
be to add on to a reef of concrete
blocks built several years ago by the
Port St. Joe Jaycees. "That reef is
still there and attracting fish", Koran
said, "but it is a little small. A project
like this could expand it and make it
more attractive for fish population",
Koran said he would volunteer his
time and efforts to secure state
permits and do whatever legwork was
necessary in the project.
The Commission agreed to file the
application .for the state funding,
pledging city participation, alter the
state written agreement is studied by
the city's attorney.
Nathan Peters, Jr., speaking for a
north Port St. Joe group, asked the
City Commission to inform area
funeral homes by letter of a city
ordinance requiring burial in concrete
vaults in both local cemeteries.
Peters said, "There was a funeral
about three weeks ago in which it
appears the person was buried with no
vault. The casket was merely buried

Hunker Down with Kes
by Kesley Colbert
to Expect from Freshman Members My Kingdom for A Horse
We can't really see how the present county commission can
expect the three freshman members who will ascend to the
board next month to be more astute at settling a very real
problem the county has. For the past 10 years, the current
county commission and its predecessors have wrestled with
what to do with our solid waste. Admittedly, all the blame for
not having it handled by now does not rest at their feet. The
Department of Environmental Regulation is more than
partially to blame. To give our commission credit, they have
tried in the past to conform to the DER's requirements, only to
have the requirements changed or altered about the time the
county 'would come into conformance.
It has been a decade of constant change; action and
A statement made by Commission chairman Doug
Birmingham last Tuesday just isn't a satisfactory answer to the
problem at hand with Gulf county. That problem is how to reach
an agreement with Bay county and its incinertator and what to
do with several proposals it has received from private solid
Birmingham said, "We'll have three new members coming
onto our board next month and they can have input to this
problem", with the intent of having it solved by December 30.
If the problem hasn't been solved to the satisfaction of DER
in 10 years, how does Birmingham expect these three new
commissioners to work a miracle in this case? They may be
good men, but we don't think they are that good. We make that
statement without being critical at all of the three new
commissioners. We make it as just being a fact of life.
In the first place, we don't go along with hiring a private
collector, from what we have heard from the proposals thus far.
We have not heard a proposal which would give residents of our
county at least as much service as they are receiving now and
the cost is nearly three times what the county, is paying at the
In our opinion, for what it may be worth, the commission
would serve the county best by biting the bullet, saying, "You
are going to have to separate your garbage and you are going to
have to pay a service fee for having its disposal handled", then
get about the business of handling it.
Really, the most pressing problem Gulf county has with its
solid waste disposal at the present time is where to get the
money to pay Bay county for incineration.
We feel Bay county is trying to hold us up on that matter
just because it is our best and probably only, alternative, but
. that's another story.
No More Debate
Geurge Bush emphatically said Thursday night he would
not indulge in another debate with Michael Dukakis. If he is
referring to the two staged hour and a half sessions we have
already seen, as a presidential debate, we don't blame him.
A debate is discussions between the two parties involved.
What we have seen is just two question and answer periods,
with most of the questions designed to embarras the
participants, not pick their brains for their thoughts on the
Actually, we think the debates are boosting Bush's stock,
and he probably thinks so too, but they are not getting at the
To us, the debates seem aimed more at trying to convince
the American public the questioners have a much more
complete grasp of national happenings than they really do
We really didn't hear anything new at either of the debates,
including the one for the vice-presidential candidates. The only
new ground which we thought came out of all three was the
question designed to make Dan Quayle appear to be a blithering
idiot which was shoved in his face, first thing, as the
vice-presidential candidate debacle got started.
The first thing you notice is the
white chalk line on the floor. You've
had this nurse I know. Her favorite
event at the Olympics is the javelin
throw. She comes in to take your blood
with a smile, some cheery talk, a
seven inch carbide tipped needle and
track shoes. While you roll up your
sleeves she's a' practicing her ap-
proach to the line. The lucky ones
faint with the needle in mid-air.
It usually takes about four throws
to hit paydirt. If you're the first one in
the morning it sometimes takes more.
Every Olympic hopeful has to have
some warm up tosses. After the first
near miss they give me a bullet to bite
on before the screams can alert
anyone in the waiting room.
Once they get the carbide tipped
needle in place they hook up the air
pump and the contest is on. They see
how much of your blood they can
pump into that thirty-two gallon trash
can beside the bed in two minutes.
When this ordeal is over they set you
up and say something like, "Now that
wasn't bad was it? Are you O.K.? You
look a little pale."*
Two days later they call you back
in and give you the C-word.
Cholesterol. Now that nurse is really
nice when she hasn't got that javelin
in her hand. She asked with a great
deal of concern about the number of
eggs that I eat.
"Oh, two or three."
"A week a month?"
"Oh, no m'am, a day." I went on
to explain about how my Dad had
taught us from an early age that the
day wasn't off to a decent start unless
you've had a few eggs, a strip or two
of bacon, sausage, cheese grits and a
couple of buttered biscuits. We'd top
this off with a big cold glass of butter-
milk. I learned well. Except for the
summer vacation period where my
wife doesn't get up to cook, I've had
near 'bout this same breakfast for for-
ty years. That nurse was as pale as I
was two days earlier.
Now folks, I don't even know what
cholesterol is. It sure never dawned
on me that I had too much. And to
.think, all this time I was feeling fine.
That nurse was sure down on ham-
burgers, french fries, eggs and hunk
cheese. And she was big on polyun-
saturates. When she got to that part
about separating the yoke from the
albumin she lost me. I promised her
I'd cut down to one egg a morning and
go to two percent milk. After I left she
called my wife.
The very next morning I woke up
to a breakfast of orange juice, a bowl
of oatmeal and prunes. Now, I've got
nothing against that Quaker fellow
and when my Dad was on a trip
Mother would serve us oatmeal on oc-
casion. I was familiar with it. The
trouble with oatmeal is that it doesn't
taste good and at the same time it
doesn't taste bad. I mean you finish
and you're not sure you've eaten
anything. As for the prunes, I've been
hungry before but I've never been
desperate. I finished my orange juice
and snuck a Snickers bar when no one
My wife gets fired up about this
health stuff. I haven't had an egg in
six weeks. She even cut out my Sun-
day night cheese and crackers. I've
eaten so many salads sans dressing
that I now hop away from the table
saying, "Eh, what's up Doc."
The C-word ain't killing me it's
the fight against it that's about to do
me in. I'll give you an example. A cou-
ple of weeks ago we ate at the fancy
seafood place. Sue ordered the mullet.
Janice had a fried shrimp dinner with
banana split pie for dessert. Shirley
also had the shrimp. Willie had a
seafood platter. Cathy ordered the
Captain Tom's special seafood platter
wtih fried corn on the cob on the side. I
enjoyed a glass of unsweetened tea
and a breadstick no butter.
I went back yesterday morning
for my six week check up. As I stroll-
ed in, careful to step over the chalk,
the friendly nurse informed me with a

Time Out; While I Spend A Week Enjoying the World Series
KESLEY COLBERT and I don't
have a whole lot in common. He's a
young fellow, full of vim and vitality.
I'm right on the edge of entering the
category of "mature," which is just
before the elderly category, leading
into the golden ager group.
Kesley is a "shore nuff" country
boy and I was just raised in a small
town and have always lived in a small
town. There was no farm living in my
Kesley can talk for hours about
a subject. What he says about his
subject doesn't necessarily have to be
true, you understand, but he can talk
for hours. When I say "Hi, how are
you doing today", I have exhausted
my repertoire of small talk.
Kesley is an athlete. He has, or is,
playing nearly every kind of sport you
can think about. He's played sort of
semi-pro baseball. He has played
small college football and high school
basketball. Even today, he'd chal-
lenge almost anybody in a spirited
game of mumbley-peg. I'm a couch
potato when it comes to sports. I
didn't participate in many of them on
any level, but I can watch them being
played with the best spectator in the
country. As a fan, I don't take a back
seat to anybody.
I'M LIKE KES IN my love for
baseball. I dearly love a good game of
baseball. The final game of the
play-offs on Thursday night of last
week was my kind of game. Let the
team I would like to see win get a lead
and then hold the other team off for
the rest of the game. That's a thrilling
game to me. The only thing which
could have made it better would have
been for the Dodgers to have scored
only one run and then played the rest
of the game.
It even did my heart good to see
prima-donas like Gary Carter, Daryl
Strawberry and Dwight Gooden get
beat. The thing which bothers me is
that they are such gem-dandy base-
ball players and such cruddy people
Anyhow, it did me good to see the
Dodgers come through and whip the
invincible Mets, earning a place in
the world series.
THE THING WHICH makes me
so similar to old Kes is that both of us
are in hog heaven this week with the
world series going on. We both have a
love for a good, well-played baseball
game. The world series games are
usually the epitome of good baseball
in any season.
Of course, Kes and I are soul
buddies in another arena, too. He had
much rather see the St. Louis
Cardinals going after Carnie Lansford
and Lumpany in the series and I had
rather see the Atlanta Braves in there
Kes still has hopes of seeing the
Cardinals back in there in this
lifetime. I don't think the Braves will
make i.t again in my generation.
You can bet, though, that Kes will
be glued to his TV set all this week,
and I'll be glued to mine, watching the
world series games being played.
I do have a little more interest
than usual in watching the series this
year. The Athletics' star player,
Carnie Lansford, is my cousin, twice
(or thrice) removed. He happens to be
the son of my uncle's brother. What
kin does that make him to me? Not
very close, I suspect.
Of course, I know our relationship
with Carnie, but I doubt if he's ever
heard of me.
A lot of you know the Carnie
Lansford (my uncle) who lived here in
Port St. Joe for a while. The Carnie
playing for the Athletics is his nephew
and named after the Carnie Lansford
who lived here.
As if all that amounted to a hill of
The point is, Kesley and I are so
engrossed in watching the series this
week, you'll probably get either a
re-hash or a third-grade effort at our
little written tomes this week.
THE ONLY THING which will
compare with the world series in
interest, is a good dove shoot.
The same situation which is
turning me into a couch potato fan is
keeping me out of the dove field, I
suspect. I have a built in excuse here,
though, since I haven't had an invite
to go north and join in on a dove shoot
yet this season.
Actually, I haven't even heard
much talk of people hunting dove yet
this year. I suppose there are some
who are trying their luck, but up until
this past week end, it has been just too
hot to hunt dove.
It was even too hot to play
baseball, but it was just right to lean
back in my recliner, tune into the
baseball game and hear the announ-
cer tell me they were just a fixing to
I don't really know who will win
the world series. The Athletics have
an excellent record this year, but
those Dodgers have a way of winning
just about the time most folks say they
are over the hill and done for. I don't
know if it's the water out there in Los
Angeles, Fernando Valenzuela, Tom-
my Lasorda, those blue trimmed
uniforms or cork in their bats.
Don't you ever count them out of
the game even when they're
playing the Braves and the Cardinals.
Especially when they're playing
the Braves and the Cardinals.

PEOPLE IN AMERICA have nostalgia fever!
Have you ever noticed how many antique shops there are? All I've
ever seen were doing a booming business, too.
Most of you know that I love to write this column. After all, I've been'
writing it for about seven years-take 22 months out for a forced move-and
I've only missed a few deadlines; maybe half a dozen. I know, I know, I
shouldn't have missed a one! Well, maybe I shouldn't have written a one.
The only reason I continue to write them is because the pay is so good, but
who cares about anything as insignificant as money?
.... ALTHOUGH I'M JUST a tad over forty, I ran out of first-hand,
nostalgic events to write about months and months ago. Don't get me
wrong; it's not my memory going bad because it's just as sharp as it was
a few years ago when I was 35. It is rather hard to recapture some of the
minute details around some of the events that would make them
For instance, I can remember when there was no television or FM
S radio and most of the AM radio stations went off the air at sundown.
S IF YOU ARE WONDERING what people did after dark in those days,
I .can tell you. After supper and the dishes were done and clothes were
prepared for school the next day, we sat on thefront porch and talked. If
it was winter, we sat around a pot-bellied stove and talked. If we were
awake after 10 p.m., there was something special going on.
How many people do you know today who have a front porch and
don't have a T.V.?
don't wasthose days when we kids played with marbles and slingshots. I
was admonished several times for playing marbles for "keepsies," and
one time I shot a man behind the ear with a chinaberry, propelled from
my slingshot. I wasn't admonished for that, however; Momma gave me
an old fashioned whipping.
For several years during this time, we were one of the two families in
our community who had a telephone. At least we were one of the two who
would summons neighbors to the phone in case of an emergency.
ONE THING I REMEMBER about nights was being scared of the
dark. While sitting around the front porch, the adults would tell tales of
scarey things that happened to them when they were children. I still
remember most of the tales and I still get a little uneasy walking down a

PAC Merges with Treatment
Two organizations effected a
merger Thursday night to become one
comprehensive agency known as the
Chemical Addictions Recovery Effort
The former Panhandle Alcohol-
ism Council (PAC) and the former
Northwest Florida Drug Council
(NWFDC) officially joined forces for
the purpose of providing high-quality,
cost efficient substance abuse ser-
vices throughout a six-county catch-
ment area that includes Bay, Calhoun,
Gulf, Holmes, Jackson, and Washing-
In his invocation prior to the
meeting, Reverend Wade Bell noted,
"The two organizations who have
served so- faithfully can now better
serve under one roof. Through these
two becoming one, victims of sub-
stance abuse may indeed be better
helped because we are together rather
The birth of a new organization
required approval of by-laws, the
incorporation statement, and the
election of officers. The newly elected-
officers are: Roy Smith, president;
Allen Scott, vice president; George
Smith, treasurer; and Ernest Lang-
ford, secretary. Robert Wilford, exec-
utive director of CARE, explained the
merger will save time for clients.
"Many who suffer from alcohol-
ism also have a drug problem, and
both problems can now be handled by
one agency," he said. Combining the
two programs will also streamline our
referral network." Wilford said the
program will be unique in its "all
under one roof" concept which
includes prevention and intervention
programs in the schools, as well as
complete assessment and treatment
"I'm really excited about what's
about 'to happen," newly elected
President Roy Smith said, in address-
ing the board and staff of both
organizations. He, applauded the
efforts of former PAC Executive
Director Robert Wilford and former
NWFDC Executive Director Ron Neal
in bringing about the joining of both
He told the board members, "We
are all in this together...I hope the
word 'care' applies to our treatment
of each other as board members and
to the organization." He also assured

Symbol Says It Best
Symbols and symbolic efforts
draw attention to issues. For instance,
Just Say No campaigns around our
nation have made most of us aware of
a special meaning for the large red
ribbons that are displayed on busi-
nesses, churches, and homes each
Another ribbon campaign was
started a couple of years ago by
Norma Norris of Butler County,
Pennsylvania. She proposed that she
and her neighbors display white
ribbons during Pornography Aware-
ness Week (this year Oct. 30 thru Nov.
The plan was an overwhelming
success as more than 12,000 autos had
white ribbons on their antennae. This
drew national attention and had a
dramatic effect on the community.
Now more than 460 local chapters
across the country are joining in on
this symbolic jesture.
When people participate in these,
campaigns they let telephone com-
panies know that they don't want
dial-a-porn, that they don't want video
stores to stock nasty movies, they
want obscenity laws enforced, and
they want the lid to be put on the filth
that our children are being exposed to.
Both presidential contenders have
been sensitized to the white ribbon
idea. If you were to send them a white
ribbon, their campaigns would know
where you stand on the issue of
pornography. Their addresses are:
-George Bush, 753 15th St. NW, Ste

Michael Dukakis, 105 Chauncy St.,

The Port St. Joe Sharks have a
perfect football district record after
their 13-10 win over the Blountstown
Tigers last Friday night.
The Sharks scored all their 13

quarter, with both scores set up by the
defensive squad which spent the rest

< Willie Smith intercepted a Marcus
Gatlin pass in the waning minutes of
the second quarter, which ended in a
touchdown pass to Ken Monette on the
fourth down from the Tiger three yard
line for the first Shark points of the
night. The Sharks were behind and
tried to pass for two extra points, but
the attempt failed..
Then just 31 seconds later, the
Sharks scored again on a 15 yard pass
play from Kevin Cox to Cody, Thomas

It looked as if it would be all
downhill for the Sharks, as the Tigers
fumbled the opening kick-off and a
fired up defensive unit was right on
top of the action. Ernest Gant covered
the loose ball for the Sharks at the
Tiger 28 yard line. But, with even with
such a golden opportunity, the Sharks
could only move the ball one yard
against the stubborn Tiger defense.
Bobby Williams tried a 37 yard field
goal on fourth down, but the ball didn't
have the distance.
The Sharks had the ball only once
more in the first period, with the
;Tigers playing a ball control game
behind the end sweep running of Bob
Everett and Marcus Gatlin.
The second period opened with the
Tigers on the Shark 45 and driving. It
took only four plays for Gatlin to
sneak in from the six vard line with
9:48 left in the quarter for the game's
first score. The Tigers tried a fake
kick and passed the ball for a two
point conversion, but the pass fell
short. The referees, however, ruled
the Sharks had interfered with the
receiver, so the Tigers had a second
chance at the conversion play.

attention of Tiger tacklers all night
long, plunged for three yards. Then a

He was immediately swamped by the
Tiger defense and tackled for a safety,

Apalachicola's Seafood Festival
Slates Its 25th Edition Nov. 4-5
Fall is in the air, and the changing
of the seasons brings about the 25th
annual Florida Seafood Festival. The
festival is held each year over the first
weekend of November, in the historic
town of Apalachicola, located on the
Gulf of Mexico, 60 miles southeast of
Panama City, and 75 miles southwest
of Tallahassee. Scenic coastal high-
way U.S. 98 runs through Apalach-
icola, coming from east or west. The
town sits on the beautiful Apalach-
icola Bay at its junction with the
Apalachicola River. From these
waters are harvested 90 percent of the
oysters and 52 percent of the entire
shellfish output of Florida.
But the Florida Seafood Festival
is more than just a marine event, and
more than just a tribute to the seafood
industry. It is an acknowledgement of
a way of life that exists only on the
coast. The people who live by the sea
and because of the sea, are proud to

HRS Moves 2-County Center
Into Port St. Joe Location
The Florida Department of
Health and Rehabilitative Services
has opened a new central office in
Port St. Joe at the corner of Highway
98i and Second Street. The new
location, which is housed in the Duren
Building, has been extensively reno-
vated inside and out to furnish
working headquarters for HRS agents
who serve both Gulf and Franklin
According to George Wood, pro-
gram administrator, the services in
the: central location have not been
expanded from what. was already
available in the. two counties. "We
have just brought them together in a
central location rather than have the
HRS services strung' out in three
different locations. We feel this move
will better servp the residents of both
counties who 'have need of HRS
The Port St. Joe office has some
20 people working out of the central
office, ranging from receptionists to

services of HRS are furnished jointly
to both counties out of the local office.
"Neither of these two small counties

New Simplified Tax
Laws Aren't Simple
The new simplified tax laws
aren't all that simple, CPA Wayne
Dewitt told the Rotary Club at their
meeting last Thursday.
"Actually the thought of the new
tax laws is right comical ifit weren't
so serious for everyone", Dewitt told
Rotarians, as he went into a discus-
sion of how a person could prepare
himself to handle his tax burden with
"To get in the shape you want to
be to handle your tax for next year,
you need to begin making plans this
year", the speaker said. "Taking
advantage of the tax laws which are
convenient for your situation take
some prior planning on your part", he
Taxes expected to go up or down
need some getting ready for, too,
-" Such things tb 1tok at in making
-- preparations to softening the tax blow
in a coming year -are to 1) defer
income; 2) bunch deductions; 3) look
at your tax picture prior to January 1.
"Often, if you take a look at your tax
situation early in December, you can
soften your tax liability with dona-
tions, purchases, investment, etc.",
the CPA said.
One big change in the tax laws
coming up are the changes 'in
deductions. for personal (consumer
loan) interest. "This year, only 40
percent of the interest paid out in
such items as furniture, car, credit
card or installment buying -was
deductible from taxable income. Next
year it will ,be, 20 percent and a
gradual phasing out until the deduc-'
tion is allowed no more", DeWitt,said.
Certain interest payments will still' be
allowed as deductions, but it would be
"good business for a tax payer to find'
out which interest payments are
allowed as deductions.
In summing, up, DeWitt said it
would pay anybody who pays taxes--
particularly a substantial amount-to,
make preparations ahead of time to
avoid paying an unnecessarily large
