Sheriff Harrison


Suspended from


Official Duties
In a special announcement Wednesday afternoon
Governor Lawton Chiles suspended Sheriff Al Harri-
son from office pending the outcome-of an investiga-
tion by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.
The Board of County Commissioners was meeting
at 4:00 p.m. to consider the bond of Major James
Coats, to act as interim sheriff during Harrison's sus-
pension. The Governor announced that Sheriff Harri-
son's suspension was due to his obstruction of inves-
tigation by the FDLE into charges of harassment in
his office.
Coats is from Pinellas County and has 23 years of
service with the Pinellas Sheriffs office.


Fire Causes Heavy Damage at Beach Monday Night


A late evening fire. Monday, caused a tenta-
tively estimated $500,000 damages to one of
the most unique and popular motels at Mexico
Beach, the Driftwood, owned byTom and Peggy
Wood.
According to Mexico Beach Police Chief Jeff
Sellers, the fire started around 9:45 p.m., Port
St. Joe time, and completely destroyed the
owner's apartment, upstairs, and the two ad-
joining rental units. The downstairs portion


suffered extensive water and smoke damage.
The blaze started in the kitchen area of the
apartment, around the cooking range, but
heavy smoke hampered 'preliminary efforts to'
find the center of the fire and put it out. Heavy

the rear of the structure, fanned the blaze,

City Gives Chamber



Support to Seek Grant

Project Would Secure Funds to Renovate Old Theatre

Building Into A Civic Center for Po6t St. Joe


This small car, driven by Donald K. Taylor, Jr., was wedged underneath the pulpwood truck
shown in the photo below,

One Man Still Ih Intensive Care with Multiple Injuries


Donald K.. Taylor, Jr., o1
Sunnyside Beach in Bay
County and' recently of Cali-
fornia, is still in critical condi-
tion in a Bay County hospital
suffering serious injuries from
one of the worst accidents, on
Gulf Count highways this
year. -
Taylor ws tentatively re-
ported to have. received two
broken legs,i broken ribs, a
broken arm, internal injuries
and a mangled face, with ex-
tensive damage to his eyes.
S HIT A PULPWOOD TRUCK
The accident happened be-
fore daylight last Wednesday
morning at, about 5:30 a.m.,
near the entrance to Gulf Aire
on Highway 98. Both vehicles
were headed in" a westerly di-
rection, when Taylor overtook
a loaded pulpwood truck, driv-
en by Vance C. Hill, no ad-
dress given. Florida Highway
Patrol spokesman said .the.
truck slowed down and Tay:
ior's Honda plowed into the
rear at a good, rate of speed,
The impact of the crash
carried the car in between the
loaded truck and -its right rear
set of wheels, pinning Taylor
inside his car. It took Gulf
County rescue crews, nearly,
45 minutes to cut him free.
South Gulf County Ambu-
lance Service Paramedic,
Mark Klingbeil said the only


thing which saved Taylor's life
was the fact he had his seat-
belt fastened.. He .and his
crew, EMT Eddie Nichols and
Paramedic Debra Thrasher
gave Taylor preliminary treat-
ment while rushing him to the


hospital.
The crash is still under in-
vestigation to determine the
cause.
Photos accompanying this
story were loaned to The Star
by Dick LaFerle of Gulf Aire.


This pulpwood truck was involved in a two-vehicle accident last
Wednesday morning at St. Joe Beach.


SThe City, Commission gave
their assurance of cooperation to
Tamara Laine, Chamber of Com-
merce executive director Tuesday
night, in an attempt to purchase
and renovate the old Port Theatre
building on Reid Avenue.
Closed as an active movie
theatre nearly 30 years ago, the
old building has been deteriorat-
ing ever since an attempt at res-
toration by Tommy Dee several
years ago, into a triple theatre
met with failure.
Laine approached the Com-
mission, Tuesday night, asking
for support of the Commission in
attempting to secure a. "special
categories" grant, given by the
Florida Legislature for restoration
of historical and unique build-
ings.
"It will be pretty tough to get,
, but ,certain guidelines for this
particular grant are present, in
this building, including the small
size of Port St. Joe. If it is secured
it will be a matching grant to pur-
chase the property and renovate
it. The City will be responsible for
matching up to $50,000. Half the
purchase price will be a cash
match and the remainder will be
through "in kind" services," she
said. The grant request has been
estimated at $250,000.,
'We are attempting to sell the
grant on renovating the building
.into a civic center for Port St. Joe.
It can be used for. meetings,
theatrical presentations, includ-
,ing movies and many activities,
such as the renovated Martin
Theatre building in .Panama City
has been," Laine continued. "We
think it can be a definite asset to
our city, rather than a liability."
The Board said they would of-
fer their support for renovation of
the building if the Chamber is
successful in securing the grant.
GARBAGE ORDINANCE
The proposed alterations to
the Garbage Ordinance, to go into
affect by late summer, were
amended Tuesday night, to in-
clude commercial accounts in the
new penalties for failure to separ-
ate recyclables from garbage slat-
ed for disposal by other means.
Already the new ordinance
sets penalties for home owners
failing to separate their recycla-
bles, by assessing fines starting
at 50% of the original bill if not
complied with in 30 days and


double the bill for the second and,
all subsequent citations.
Tuesday's amendment to the
ordinance added the same penal-.
ty to commercial users.
Commissioner Bill Wood ob-
jected to the measure, saying,
"Many of our commercial custom-
ers have outside interests dump-
ing their garbage 'in commercial
containers. They have no control
over this practice and 'unless we'
guarantee protection from these
outside contributors we can't
penalize them for improper use,"
he said.
Public works director Frank
Healey agreed with' Woods, saying
most commercial users didn't


have much of the type table gar-
bage slated for disposal by expen-
sive methods. He said they could
have one of the green cans to
place this type garbage in and
wouldn't be responsible for others
dumping in their containers.
The Commissionr agreed to
cut the commercial users some
slack for this reason, but still put
the amendment in motion to give
them ammunition to use against
the itinerant dumpers and the
stubborn commercial accounts.
The city furnishes recyclable
material bags to homeowners
free, to place their items slated

M.E. Gives Tentative


Cause of Richter Death

Says Evidence Points to Suicide


Dr. Fenner McCdnnell, a Pen-
sacola medical examiner, said
Monday he strongly suspected
the cause of death of Linda Rich-
ter of Port St. Joe to be suicide.
Dr. McConnell said he is still
awaiting a written report on a
toxicology laboratory to verify his
tentative report.
Linda Richter, wife of Port St.
Joe's Police Chief Carl Richter,
was found lying beside the road
near her car which was stuck in a
ditch near the Overstreet Road
early last Wednesday morning.
Dr. McConnell said his strong
suspicion is based on conversa-
tions with the toxicology laborato-
ry. He said the final results
should show the exact level of
nortriptyline, which is known 4as
Pamelor, a depressant, found in
the body.
The doctor said' he found no
anatomic signs of death and had
to rely on the toxicology report to
determine how she died.
The delay in finding the
cause of death and investigation
of the matter by the Florida De-
partment of Law Enforcement
agency, caused wild rumors to go
like a brush fire through' Port St.
Joe over the week end, which
were dispelled by the report of the


Medical Examiner Monday.
Mrs. Richter worked in the
Sheriffs Department office here
in Gulf County. Her brother-in-
law, Chief Richter's brother, also
works in. the department. The
combination of relatives working
in the two law enforcement offices
in Gulf County, coupled with a
close working relationship with
Attorney General Jim Appleman's
office, prompted the officials to
immediately call in the FDLE to
investigate the matter. Appleman
also asked Governor Lawton
Chiles to name another prosecut-
ing attorney to fulfill his duties.
Because of the delicate connec-
tion of the entwined relation-
ships, the investigation dragged
on to find the facts in the matter,
above question, before they were
released to the public.
Sheriff Al Harrison immedi-
ately called FDLE investigators in
when the body was found. FDLE
spokesmen have declined to pro-
vide details of the ongoing investi-
gation, only to say that while Port
St. Joe Police Department initiat-
ed the investigation, FDLE is car-
rying the brunt of the case now.
Funeral services for Mrs.
Richter were held yesterday after-
noon from the Oak Grove Assem-
bly of God church.

A Stay To Remember

THE INK WAS HARDLY dry on last week's paper, announc-
ing the change in jail regulations by Sheriff Al Harrison, when he
started feeling the "heat" for his actions from different sources.
One of these sources was the Panama City News-Herald,
which had a few unkind and sarcastic remarks to make over his
announcement. Although there was no comparison made, the
News-Herald seemed to ignore the record of Bay County's jail for
comparison.
The writer of the editorial suggested the removal of TV and
cigarette-smoking privileges would result in unrest among the
prisoners. even rioting and displeasure with having to be in
jail; especially faced with the hardship of having to cope without
using tobacco or watching "As The World Turns" on TV.
That's a pity. We don't have the privilege, either; and we're
not in prison. We're working, paying the taxes which keep up the
facilities the prisoners are using.
Nor, does Gulf County have the escape, unrest, jail crime,
and destruction of jail facilities which Bay County does. We un-
derstand Bay county has all the amenities of tobacco use, TV
and even air conditioning!
THE PEOPLE OF 'Gulf County, whether or not they support
Sheriff Harrison in the job, agree with his philosophy that the
care of prisoners shouldn't be a "Harrison Hilton" operation. The
people over here in Gulf county feel a person who has been put
into prison has been highly suspected of doing something which
society does not approve. It's the rare citizen who agrees with
their plush care. Keep them dry, fed and tend their medical
needs and you've met your responsibilities to those who would
break the law, according to Gulf county people.
REMEMBER THE AMERICAN youth ,who had to take the
caning of Singapore for vandalism? He sprayed paint on a car
aind the state of Singapore whipped his butt good and proper! It
11ll probably be a long time [perhaps never] before that young
man sprays paint on another car without permission.
You see, people of Gulf county think a prisoner should re-
member being a prisoner with trepidation instead of with fond
memories.
The people of Gulf County are probably sitting at home right
now, and if they are reading this piece, they are probably mus-
ing to themselves, '"I wonder if a drug dealer would be caught
selling any more drugs if he were to get six lashes with a piece of
bamboo cane across hisbottom-side, instead of getting a couple
of months in prison, watching TV, then walking the streets on
"community control" or is that "commnunity-out-of-control"?"
Gulf county has a heart for-miscreants, alright; but their
sympathies are for those who are the victims. We favor reward-
ing those who contribute to society; not those who seek to de-
stroy it.



TV Did Good Job
WE HAVE OBSERVED, AS A nation, the passage of the gold-
en anniversary of the event known asD Day. The young people
look at the event as something like the Civil War-history! To
those of us who lived through it, television hasproved its mettle
a its dtefulness as an educational tool bly ringing .s a pjcto-
ri remembrance of this military action which changed the
world.
We were sitting in a dinner with four other men last week.
Three of the four were active participants in that conflict, only
days after the initial landing was made. For an hour, these three
remembered their days in France and just how uncertain they,
were. One of the men, Nolan Treglown, said, "After I had been in
combat for about a month, in Normandy, I began to assume the'
opinion that this was it I was dead ... my number had ar-
rived."
ANOTHER FRIEND, Jiggs Zingarelli, of Apalachicola, was
one of those who went in on, one of the attacking waves after
spending a few months in Africa fighting Rommell's Afrika
Korps.
Jiggs is back inFrance this week. He re-lived that dreaded
moment of 50 years ago, when he stepped off the landing boat.
into an uncertain moment of terror. He lived to tell the tale as
did many others. There are those still living who still don't trust
themselves to talk about it.
We can't imagine just what it takes to step off into water of
an unknown .depth with over 100 pounds of equipment on your
back. Then to hear the shells bursting all around you, sinking
boats, destroying equipment, ripping men apart before your very
ey es. .. .. . .
It must have been truly hell. We're sure you would have had
to see it to believe it. But, then, didn't they do it so you wouldn't
have to see it?.

Cleaning Out Old Paper Storage Bins Stirs


DO YOU EVER WONDER
where the time goes? Somebody
brings something up and you'll
swear that only happened a
couple of years ago, when in reali-
ty, it happened 10, 15 or even 20
years ago.
By the same token you can
talk to a young person who re-
members something as happen-
ing "many years ago", when it has
been only three or four.
I get that way at times. Just
like the other day. I was cleaning
out my files of newspapers stored.
,over the years. The June slot was
full. I had no room to save a few
papers for June of this year.
Since' I try to keep a few papers
for reference's sake. I decided to
throw away the older papers in
the June cubby-hole to make
room for a few more years.
I started emptying* out the
slot and found papers stacked in
there which dated all the way
back to 1969. Since it's not likely


I would have to refer back to
1969, I started tossing papers
aside and scanning the papers to
see what the news was back
then.
ONE NEWSPAPER, PRINTED
back in 1974, had a story on the
front page about the County mak-
ing plans to establish an ambu-
lance service and the big question
was how could it be made into a
volunteer service and still meet
new state standards.'
Yours truly was on that com-
mittee, which was headed up by
Tom Coldewey. In subsequent is-
sues, Coldewey had guided the


county into inaugurating a volun-
teer service. It served the county
well for several years before being
turned over to the hospital and
operated on a paid basis.
That was 20 years ago. How
many of you realize Gulf County
has now had state approved am-
bulance service for 20 years?
Up to that time, the county
relied on the best service funeral
home operator Pete Comforter
could provide, utilizing his hearse
for transport.

Hitchhiking An Art?

Part I
It was.with much interest that I read the article in the Sunday
paper about .hitchhiking. The article, End of the Road?, had some
interesting observations about hitchhiking in it, most of which I al-
ready know but had forgotten.
Jack Kerouac wrote a book about his adventures while hitch-
hiking cross-country, the article said. I haven't read the book but
I'll bet I could tell Jack a few tales from my own experience that
would curl his toenails.
I'm a former hitchhiker from way, way back in the fifties. I'
didn't know there was such a thing as public transportation until I
was a senior in college. I bought my first car about a year after I
graduated from college. (I did own a bicycle while in college, but it
was used mostly just to get around campus. I only had two dates
on it and they didn't turn out too well.)
My hitchhiking career started when--my cousin, Denver, and I
would hitch rides to Carpenter's Creek to go swimming during the
hot summers in.the early 1950's. Later, when I got a job at a super-
market in Pensacola, I would hitchhike to work and back, often get-
ting home, late at night.
Still late, when I went away to college in Mississippi, I would,
more often than not, hitchhike to and from school, usually accom-
panied by a friend or two from school.
I had some very pleasant experiences while hitchhiking around
the Southeastern United States. There were some mighty fine peo-
ple who were aware that I was a "college kid" and were more than
helpful and I will never forget their kindness.
On the other hand, there were several rides I took that I wished
I had stayed by the side of the road; once I was seated In the vehi-
cle. There were four or five times that I was sure that I was about to
take that big ride up into the sky, and I ain't kidding. Death was so
near on those occasions that I have often wondered why I didn't-
have a heart attack. Let me tell you about a couple of them.
I had been working at a grocery store in Jackson, Mississippi,
during the holidays and was hitchhiking home on Christmas Eve,
1958. When I finally reached the Mississippi gulf coast about dark-
thirty, I couldn't get a ride. No wonder: everyone was home for
Christmas Eve, except those who were out doing some last-minute
shopping.
Finally, about midnight, a car stopped and picked me up. As
soon as we were out of the city limits the driver swerved over into
the oncoming lane, which at the time was empty. After a few miles,
I asked him what he was doing and informed him that the road on
which we traveled wasn't a four-lane highway. "I know it ain't," he
said with a slur in his voice. "I'm just going to show these people I
ain't afraid to diel"
When I finally de-planed, his car seat was a mess.
Another time, while hitchhiking home from Hattlesburg, a love-
ly; older couple from Hattiesburg picked up a friend and I and we
thought it fortunate that they were going to Pensacola, too.
I will never forget them for more reasons than one. They were
awfully nice people and they owned a flower shop in downtown Hat-
tiesburg. As best as I can remember, they were on the way to visit a
son who lived in Pensacola.
About 10 miles south of Mobile, this kindly gentleman tried to
pass a big tractor trailer truck without pressing the gas pedal down.
It seerni'd like aneternity that we rode along beside the big truck,
especially whA n we saw another big truck coming toward us in the
lane in whiph we rode. Closer and closer we came at each other.
I still don't know how we avoided a head-on collision with that
truck because I was down on my knees in the back seat praying
when I heard the man's wife tell him in a quiet voice, "Don't you try
that again." I said a silent "Amen".
The article I read said it wasn't safe to hitchhike today. Well,
I've got news for them, it wasn't safe back in the 1950's. If I had it
all to do over again, I think I would stay home until I could afford a
car.
(More exciting adventures about hitchhiking next week. Stay
tuned)

CHILDREN'S HEALTH FORUM


Traveling With

Children


By
Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.
The secret to having a good trip with children is preparation
" and training. The first thing to do is be sure each child has a seat
belt or appropriate car seat for age and is securely and correctly
belted in place.
Infants and small children will need planning for feedings. This
will necessitate a cooler for food, drinks, or medicine. Small chil-
dren will need to stop frequently for toilet and exercise breaks. For-
tunately, they often will nap off and on during a trip. Older children
need books, audio tapes, and travel games to help combat the bore-
dom that sometime sets in on a long trip.:
If two of your children are always squabbling remember separa-
tion is your salvation. One up front and one in back should settle
any differences.
It is wise to carry a small first aid kit with band aids, alcohol
wipes, cleansing wipes, thermometer, Tylenol and Kaopectate.
Drivers must be rested, alert, and not distracted by noisy fight-
ing children. A safe trip is a good trip. Good trips become the high
point of childhood memories.

Why Replace Missing Teeth?


If you're concerned about
your appearance, you should
also be concerned about the'
need to replace missing
teeth.
Your lips and. cheeks are
supported by the position of
your teeth. All of your teeth
should be there to give your
lips and cheeks full support. In
one sense they act like a nat-
ural support in preventing
- your lips and cheeks from fall-
ing Inward. This support is
threatened, however, when
you have teeth extracted but
not replaced. The cheeks will
tend to collapse, giving them
a hollow look. The facial skin
that is normally stretched
tightly over the teeth will be-


gin to sag, When this hap-
pens, wrinkles will appear and
your facial outline will be ac-
cented, This can add years to
your age.
By replacing missing
teeth, your face will receive
the support it heeds. ,It will
"plum out" again, eliminating
the wrinkles and ,the sags
caused by missing teeth. This
can help you not only feel
younger but look younger.

Poll: Most Floridians Say No to Casinos


The majority of Floridians
'don't want casino gambling.
SThat's the finding of a major inde-
pendent poll that has recently
been released.
The Masop Dixon Political Re-
search poll, commissioned by sev-
eral major newspapers and televi-
sion stations in Florida, asked
questions of voters concerning
two proposed casino amendments
attempting to get on the Novem-
ber ballot. One amendment would
,legalize as many as 47 casinos at
free-standing sites, on riverboats
and at paramutuels throughout
the state. The other would legal-
ize casinos on 21 riverboats.
About 56 percent of voters
said no to the land-based casi-
.nos: 50 percent said no to river-
boats. The percentage saying yes
was only 31 percent and 35' per-
cent respectively.
., And in fact. the number of
people opposed to casino gam-
bling increased dramatically since
tthe last poll in February, in spite
of campaigning efforts by pro-
casino groups.
"We are pleased that this ma-
j'or Independent survey shows
,what we have believed for some
time that the majority of Floridi-
ans oppose casino gambling. "
said Andrew H. Hines, Jr., presi-
dent :of No Casinos, Inc., the
Vatewide organization that op-
poses casino gambling. "Opinion
definitely seems to be shifting to
our position. This certainly un-
dercuts the notion the pro-casino
side has that casinos are inevita-
ble in Florida. And it certainly
cast their pie-in-the-sky projec-
tions in a more realistic light."
Casinos would be a tragedy
for Florida, according to Hines.
"They will rob the state and
its communities of dollars, and
degrade the quality of life we now
enjoy. Florida is a special place.
Tourism is strong more than

te to Colby


Sand I came to know Colby veiry
well over the next few months
along with his mother. Becky,.
.and his little sister. Cherish.
SI suppose it goes without say-
ing that we grew very fond of him
because somehow your heart
goes out to children who are sick.'
I think that people often think
that because you work in mediP
cine you become immune or,
hardened to sickness and death,
but I can tell you that you don't
and you never get used to the
children who are very sick and
possibly terminal. ,
Colby came to know and
trust me and when Deborah was
off and he had to have blood
. drawn he wanted..me to do it. I;
always gave him a.dollar for.beeing
so good and he in turn woulw give
me a hug. I didn't see Colby for a--
while and then about six months
ago he came to visit Joe and me
in, the radiology dept. and we
were so happy to see that he was
doing well. He had hair and had'
.put some weight on. Things'
seemed to be in a positive mode
and we'relaxed about Colby.
Last Friday as we watched
the evening news., we heard of a
child who was gravely ill in Port
St. Jqe and there on our T.V.
screen was Colby's face. We .both
felt sick and turned to each other
and asked what. possibly could
have gone wrong-he was doing so
good!ll
We visited Colby- on Satur-
day. He sat in his little hospital
bed in his living room and he told
us he didn't feel so good. \\'e gave,
him a bag which contained some-
thing his mother told us he want-
ed and when he opened it and
saw a Super Nintendo Mario Kart
game, his little eyes lit up and a
big thank you came from his lips..
It struck me that this was
such a sinall thing to do and why
couldn't I do more!i On our -way
home, I was aware that the beach
was filled with children and I
silently wished that Colby could
be there playing. Joe had prom-
ised me that he would not let his
emotions get the best of him in
front of Colby, but as we drove'
along the beach he said he want-
ed to go crabbing the next morn-
ing and he sure wished he could
take Colby!! His eyes were mistyl
This little seven year old 'boy.
hasn't been far from our hearts or
thoughts since our visit.
The man at the Video Mer-
chant who sold me the Nintendo
game said, "Why do kids ,get
sick?" I don't know the answer to

that, but I know that there is
always a purpose for every life. I'
think about the purpose for Col-
by's life.as I struggle to come to
terms with the seriousness of his,
condition. I think of the lives that
Colby has touched and I feel, the
need to tell all of you about Col6-
byl If you know him you will,-
understand that and if you don't
maybe this will.give you a glimpse
of who he is. Colby taught me the
meaning of, bravery and perser-
verance. I never heard him be too:,
complaining of his medical ordeal-
or about his lot in life.
Knowing him reminds me
that any adversity I may face in
life will pale compared to what he
Shas been through in seven short
yearp-'-.He's shown- me -that- I.
should nevere, take life for grant-
ed-that life and especially good,
health is precious anid I should ,
be grateful always! .,
When I think of him. I want
to reach out to my children and.
my grandchildren arid thank God
that they are safe and healthy.
Thinking of Colby reminds me
that there aren't -guarantees in
life and I should hold my loved
ones close, never letting the sun
go down on any anger.
Knowing Colby has given me
reason to reflect upon my own life
and think about my priorities. He
makes me want to rid my mind of
any clutter and think on those
thins which are positive-to put
myself in order. I don't know how
many more times we will be lucky
enough to \-isit Colby. When I left
him Saturday. I told him I loved
him and he told me he loved me
too, and I know that visits or not,;
Joe and I will always have Colby
in our hearts.
It makes me very proud that'
this innocent and very brave little
boy calls me his friend.- This is'
my tribute to you, Colbyll You are
one of the bravest and'most cou-
rageous little boys I have ever
known. Sometimes we grown-ups,
complain ,about, the smallest of
Sthinigs, but we could all -take a'
lesson from you! I'm sorry we met
because you" were sick, but I'm
glad that we are friends-you are'
very special to me! I would like
you to know that"in living your
life, you have taught me ,a lot
about living mine.

NEWS o.

ROUND-UP
by Jack Harper -

It looks as if Gov. Lawton Chiles is holding an ace hand in the special
session going on in Taxahassee this week....that is, if that six-daily news-
paper consortium that found Florida voters are more concerned abut gov-
ernment waste than anything else is wrong, as I suspect it may well be.
Remember thatpoll? Florida voters think the biggest public need is
the elimination of government waste (72 percent) and education (60 per-
cent). Health care reform wasn't mentioned by voters anywhere, al-
though 83 percent favored some kind of prayer in public schools.
You can look for the politicians in Florida and the nation to try to
build a consensus this summer for a need for reforms in what is the best
health care system in the world.
It's re-inventing government, you know, popular with those who want
to broker a new era of government intrusion into your personal life while
raking up more taxes from you along the way. It certainly isn't something
foolish like eliminating government waste or putting God back into the
good old USA.
Now don't you go blaming politicians for this dilemma. Just look in
the mirror. I'll bet some of you are fuming right now because the legisla-
tor you sent to Tallahassee didn't bring home as many special little pet
projects financed by taxes on someone else than other more powerful
and experienced lawmakers got for their home counties.
The problem, you see, is that most voters want good government al-
right. They want you to get rid of your crook in Taxahassee, not their
crook. It's a lesson' public officials learn in a hurry. That is why when the
economy picked up this year, TaxWatch found that turkeys were back in
style with the 1994 Legislature credited with, 60 gobbling up $43.8 mil-
lion compared to 22 worth $33 million in 1993.
A turkey is a budget item slipped into the process invariably by a
powerful lawmaker without public review that benefits a special interest
or local area without regard for the overall real needs of the state.
One of Gov. Chiles' aces in his poker game with the Legislature this
week is the $38.6 billion budget containing those 60 turkeys that is on'
his desk awaiting his signature or veto thanks to being held captive by
House Speaker Boley Johnson, D-Milton, for six weeks. Johnson's signa-
ture was required before the budget could go to Chiles. The timing, of
'course, was perfect. -
A lot less attention was given the landmark Government Performance
and Accountability Act that barely squeezed through the Legislature. It
sets the groundwork for government accountability, productivity, and the
eliriination of government waste.
Chiles' challenge, of course, is to convince that big undecided Florida
Vote in the polls that is keeping him from, getting an electable majority
that he is really Interested in eliminating government waste and deliver-
ing government services more efficiently.
He's hoping they'll forget about the drives he has consistently made
for increasing taxes except for this election year and the big raises he
passed around to all his.people before any of those promises to right-size
government were accomplished.
They may do just that. This old reporter isn't sure that undecided
voter is. really ready to throw out the tempting pie-in-the-sky because it
-tastes so good.
WATCH OUT: There's a good possibility that Legislators will try to
narrow the controversial smokers' revenge law that was slipped through
the regular session to apply Just to tobacco products. If they do, accord-
ing to House Republican Leader Sandra Mortham of Largo. it will be un-
constitutional on the same grounds that the courts declared the tax on
raw sugar to be illegal In the Save Our Everglades amendment proposal.
Appeal, then maybe a new law would be safer. The one that got through
is outrageous.
BIBLICAL PLATFORM: "Biblical principles such as 'Thou shall not
kill' should be taught in our schools." says Linda Ossorio of Tallahassee,
a candidate for Florida Commissioner of Educaiibn.: It does not meaq,
'she said, the teaching of religion in school because that Is against the
1 law.
NO HILTON: "As long as I got my T.V. and cigarettes. I can spend 30
days anywhere in the world," a new inmate was heard remarking at the
Gulf County Jail. In response. Sheriff Al Harrison banned both T.V. and
tobacco. "It's not the Harrison Hilton anymore." Harrison said.
TOP HEAVY SCHOOLS: Devon Miles. 29, of Graceville, a political
science graduate from Florida State University. is gathering signatures to
run as an Independent candidate against Rep. Robert Trammell. D-
Marianna. for the 7th district seat. A major plank in his platfrom Is level-
ing education money down from "high prices administration" to the class-
room. "Eleven county school superintendents in Florida are paid more
than the governor," Miles said. "and Jackson County has two school psy-
chologists who'make $35.500 each." -
SUBSIDIZING HEALTH INSURANCE: Gov. Lawton Chiles is asking .
Florida legislators for government-subsidized health Insurance for famit-
lies of four making as much as $37,000 a year in the seven-day special
session which began Tuesday. .
It is the main issue of the session that opponents contend Chiles is
using for a springboard in his reelection campaign. They say the
$37.000 threshold is "pie-in-the-sky welfare for the middle class" calling
for higher taxes, health.care rationing, and the loss of freedom to choose
your own doctor. Not wanting to be against reform entirely, they want ,
$22,000 ceiling for families of four to qualify for subsidies.
Chiles' plan wouldn't offer health coverage to a third of the Floridians
who do not now have health insurance. A new/ report from Chiles' office
estimates that 800.000 could qualify under the. plan in the: next five.
years without causing a tax Increase.
He intends to. fund the subsidies with money from other programs
that already provide medical care for the poor, most from projected sav-
ings by the state moving Medicaid patients into managed care programs
and picking up federal money now going into Florida Medicaid.
Chiles claims Florida can't wait until a slow-moving Federal govern-
ment finishes, work in its health reform program in Congress this sum-
mer. His opponents and other observers say it-is his re-election cam-
paign with polls showing hini still behind that can't wait;
BUDGET FREED: Florida's $38.6 million budget that was held cap-
tive in the office of House Speaker Bo Johnson for more than six weeks
after it was passed by the Legislature has been signed anid delivered to
SGov. Lawton Chiles. ,
"I couldn't imagine what you're talking about," Johnson said when
asked if he had held the budget up so Chiles could have it on his desk as
a bargaining chip when dealing with Legislators during the special ses-
sion. A research group--Florida TaxWatch-says thel994 budget has 60
turkeys in it totalling $43.8 million. Turkeys, according to the group, are
projects placed in the budget without proper public review, or which ben-,
efit a special interest or local area of the state, or are low priority items
that get funded over higher priority items. .
TIE TO CRIME? State Sen. John Grant, D-Tampa, said a $100,000
contribution to a petition drive to legalize casinos in .Florida from a hotel
company that employed a lawyer with ties to organized crime "should be
no surprise to.anyone that the mob, organized crime and casinos go
hand in glove." Grant is a leader in the No Casinos, Inc., petition drive
that hopes to get on the ballet in November so people will have a chance
to vote on having no casino gambling at all in Florida.
NO VETO: Gov. Lawton Chiles allowed a bill'to become law that es-
tablishes a special governing district in Dade and Broward counties on
2:500 acres targeted as a sports and entertainment complex with the
powers of a local government.
Blockbuster Entertainment Corp. must now get Dade and Broward


county commissions and the city of Miramar to ratify the bill which was
opposed by environmentalists because it is only about three miles from
the Everglades. It must also be assessed for regional impact.
The legislation gives Blockbuster authority to collect taxes and con-
demn land at the park, which may include a baseball stadium, arenas for
professional hockey and basketball, golf courses, and other tourist at-
tractions. gl cour. e s. a o "r t -o u .is a

High School
By Larry A. Mathes

D-Day Remembered?
A recent street interview was conducted by a national TV news
show," with a roving reporter asking young people what "D-Day"
was? This was in a large eastern city, but I suspect it could have
been most anywhere in the U.S. None of those students selected
randomly had a clue as to what the significance of D-Day was. In
contrast, the same survey was done in a European city, and all but
one knew what had happened on "D-Day". Both surveys were done
weeks before the current media blitz took place. Maybe which side
of the Atlantic you live on determines your interest in matters such
as this, but I was glad that at least the Europeans seem not to have
forgotten what some. of our fathers and grandfathers fought and
died for in Normandy. Young people need to know the history of
WWII, the Korean "conflict". and Vietnam. and who played what
part. There is always a chance for a repeat performance, and the
question on many peoples' minds today is "would we still fight?"
The high school construction work is underway, causing diffi-
culties with summer school. If your student Is taking social studies,
.-English, orscience., these classes are being-held 'at Wewa Elemeni-
tary School. Music. P.E., alternative education, drivers education.
and oceanography are meeting at various locations at the high
school, but not In the main building. The auto mechanics class
scheduled for this summer was cancelled due to insufficient enroll-
ment.
Parents or business people who wish to be added to the ballot

Improvement committee may call 639-2228 to volunteer their ser-
vice. When the ballot is formulated it will be mailed to parents for
the voting process.

Gleanings From My Garden


Mama Lola
"C has his hand on your life." Those words from the
heart a saint and that beautiful rapsy voice still echoes in
my ears. If she said it once, she said it a hundred times. In
ways I never told her, Mama Lola Costin shaped my life. I've
met a few saints-along the way, none more beautiful than Mrs.
Costin.
; Many of you know her like me' as a legend around St. Joe.
The spin on the story was always that Mama Lola could give it
away as fast as Mr, Cecil could make it. Let me let you in on a
,little secret God put them together. The Bible teaches that
giving and receiving go hafid and glove, "Cast your bread upon
*the waters, for after many days you will find it again" (E.ccle-
siastes 11:1). How many hungry families were fed, how many
meals were fixed for grieving families, how much was given
away in the truest sense of Christian hospitality and generosi-
ty? God only knows. She gave because she had it to give and
even if she had not she would have found a way. Such was
Mama Lola's heart. She did not know any other way.
This past year heaven became the richer and this world the
poorer. Mama Lola went home to that "house not made with
hand, eternal in the heavens" (2 Corinthians 5:1 NKJV). She
joined the rest of the called home saints. One in particular she
knew well Cecil, Jr.,- her .son, and my 10th grade Sunday
School Teacher. He too brushed up against this young preach-
er's life. That touch also left an impression. The year he taught
me was the first living lesson I learned that having faith did not
mean compromising your intellect. Being smart, having a sharp
mind, and using your brain are not in opposition to believing in
God. Cecil, Jr. was a fine lawyer, a sound Bible teacher, and a
solid theologian as well. He and Mama Lola are now looking

cent National Wildlife Refuge will
offer free freshwater fishing days
announced Refuge Manger Don-
ald J. Kosin. These days will coin-
cide with the State of Florida free

cense. The purpose of the Free

those who have not been in
awhile what they are missing.
Low water levels may make
access difficult to Lakes 1

corporating periodic draw down.
