Harrison Claims He's 'Not Guilty"
Reacts to Governor's Charges/Removal with Denial of Any Wrong Doing
Governor Lawton Chiles suspended Gulf
County Sheriff Al Harrison from office and re-
placed him with a caretaker acting sheriff. Ma-
jor James F. Coates of the Pinellas County
Sheriffs office to serve in Harrison's absence,
last Wednesday in a fast-moving scenario. The
Governor's order was served. Harrison removed
from office and a replacement seated between
2:30 and 3:00 in the afternoon, in what was a
maneuver which surprised everyone in Gulf
County-even Sheriff Hanison.
Four members of the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement appeared in Port St. Joe at
0 noon Wednesday and entered Sheriffs Harri-
son's office advising him they wanted to take
another statement concerning the investigation
they had initiated the end of March, concerning
'the activities of his office.
Sheriff Harrison said he would be glad to
give the interview but that he was planning to
go to Linda Richter's funeral at 2:00, and that
he wanted an attorney to sit in on the inter-
view, "Just to see that nobody oyersteps their
legal bounds." The agents agreed, as they had
on the two sessions in prior weeks.
Assuring Sheriff Harrison. "We won't be
long,"-after the arrival of attorney Bob Moore,
who had been monitoring the interview ses-
:sions-the interview got underway and ended
with one of the agents opening a folder and re-
moving the Governor's order to suspend Harri-
son from office temporarily.
FIRST INKLING OF INVESTIGATION
According to official statements by both
Harrison and attorney Bob Moore, neither
knew Linda Richter was involved in the investi-
gation until the day of her death, when they
were Informed of the fact by FDLE investiga-
Sheriff Harrison had not retained. Moore to
represent him-and still has no attorney-at
the time, but had merely asked Moore to sit in
on the three questioning sessions as a protec-
tion to the legality of the procedures. Both Har-
rison and Moore were surprised the session
generated into more than just a fact-finding ex-
ercise of the FDLE.
Sheriff Harrison said. "I knew nothing of the
purpose of the investigation until Wednesday.
when they removed me from office. There was
no indication they were in town for anything
except another session of questions until they
pulled out the file containing the Governor's or-
der. The agent read me the order, asked for my
badge and my keys and asked. 'Are there any
questions. Mr. Harrison?'"
EXECUTIVE ORDER SERVED
The Executive Order served on the Sheriff
Wednesday of last week, sigried by Governor
Lawton Chiles, said, in part. ". Al Harrison
has interfered with the investigation into allega-
tions pending against him, and in so doing, ob-
structed Justice by instructing certain potential
witnesses to resist the efforts of law enforce-
ment investigators to gather information." The
only other phrase of substance in the docu-
ment was a sentence which read, "Al'Harrison
is hereby suspended from public office which
he now holds, to wit: Sheriff of Gulf County."
In a press conference, called by Harrison
the following afternoon in Wewahitchka at 4:00
p.m., EST, Harrison stated he had cooperated
with FDLE's investigation in every way.. eyen al-'
lowing them to remove records from his office

State Emergency Head
Meeting with Officials
Joe Myers, Florida's ,director of emergency management, will
be in Port St. Joe Tuesday of next week, to meet with all elected
officials and emergency personnel and discuss what is expected
of them in case of an emergency which might develop in the
state or in. Gulf county.
By accepting state money, the first of this fiscal year, for
emergency purposes, Gulf falls into the state network of provid-
ing for emergency services in case of a disaster, natural or man-
Gulf County received state funds amounting to $70,000 the
first of this fiscal year with the only requirement being that the
county be part of the emergency system, with a definite plan of
what to do should a disaster strike, and it must hire an emer-
gency management director.
Larry Wells, Civil Defense director' of Gulf County for many
years, says Gulf has met its requirements by hiring Marshall
Nelson as its emergency management -director. Nelson is cur-
rently involved in getting Gulfs 911 system up and operating.
Nelson says this will be accomplished by October 1 of this year.
The county has had an emergency plan for many years and the
plan is constantly being up-dated.
Wells said Myers is an unusual bureaucrat. "He believes in
actually doing things rather than Just sitting at his desk in Talla-
hassee and ordering it done. He's coming here to talk with our
officials, not issue them an ultimatum. He's interested in seeing
what we have done and in guiding us to do the things we haven't

Due Apologiesfrom Governor, FDLE
THINGS WERE BREAKING fast and furious last week. The
interest of practically every citizen in Gulf County and a goodly
number from surrounding counties was held captive by the ac-
tions of Governor Lawton Chiles and the Florida Department of
. Law Enforcement, concerning their so-called investigation of the
' Gulf County Sheriffs office.
As of Friday, after more information had been brought into
the open, and the substance of earlier rumors were made
known; after the cobwebs were removed from the "deep, dark se-
cret" which was supposed to permeate the subject, we have
reached an opinion. That opinion is based on the accusations
made by FDLE, by the Governor's actions and subsequent sus-
pension of Sheriff Al Harrison from office.
Our opinion? Well, here it is. We believe the FDLE owes
Sheriff Harrison the deepest of apologies and Governor Lawton
Chiles should make a personal appearance here in Gulf County
.begging our pardon for actions which have severely slurred both
the County's and the Sheriffs reputation. From what we have
heard, seen and read from the investigation; both from the FDLE
'headquarters and from the governor's office, there never was
'enough there worth destroying a public servant's career over.
WHEN THE FDLE begins an investigation, it shouldn't re-
quire the removal-of a person from his job to get that Investiga-
tion done; especially when there is nothing found to substantiate
claims made by a party or parties about some alleged deeds. If
there is substantive evidence and the charges are valid, one
might be justified to remove a person from active duty. If there is
riot-as both the Governor and FDLE leadership say there hasn't
been in this case-it is our opinion they have overstepped their
bounds' and 'caused untold embarrassment to be inflicted on a
party who, by law, is innocent until proven guilty .. or at least
a reasonable suspicion of guilt is brought forth.
Nobody-even Sheriffs---deserves to be removed 'from office,
or his job, simply because it will "assure, the unimpeded comple-
tion of official criminal investigations regarding matters of seri-
ous concerri tothe citizens of Gulf County." FDLE investigators
had not advised the Sheriff of the charges against him, and had
experienced no resistance to their investigative efforts.
WE BEND OVER BACKWARD to protect the rights of crimi-
: als, even to the point of danger to the general public. We tie the
hands of law enforcement officials in the name of freedom. Isn't
a Sheriff deserving of the same kind of protection we give crimi-
nals? Had Gulf County's Sheriff incarcerated a private citizen on
the flimsy excuse of a charge or suspicion as was used against
him, the state and federal government would have pounced on
him with a vengeance for violation of that citizen's rights. Does. a
Sheriff have no rights?
Governor Chiles should be about the business of lifting the
suspension of Sheriff Al Harrison and seeing that he is back on
(ife job, forthwith, meanwhile Instructing the FDLE to conduct
their investigation in a professional rather than a punitive man-
ner, getting to the bottom of the matter with the least-inconven-
ience to everyone involved.
Gulf County does not deserve this type attention and appre-
ciates it even less. FDLE could have made their investigation
without all these theatrics:.
Maybe This Will Work
FOR THE PAST 25 years or so, -the old Port Theatre building
on Reid Avenue has been a subject which has been discussed
over and over again, with a workable decision still in the wings
on what to do with the old building. It has been an eyesore for
the "street" over the past several years and various solutions to
the problem it has caused have been suggested with no concrete

WITHIN .THE PAST FEW days a committee composed of
Chamber of Commerce members has come up with an idea of
securing a state grant to re-vamp the old building into a civic
center for Port SL Joe. It sounds reasonable and desirable, but
will it turn out to be just another in a series of wishes which
never quite seem to come to fruition?
Maybe the plan thought out by these local citizens will actu-
ally make it to a reality for the City and maybe not. There is no
arguing with the idea being a desirable one. There is no argu-
ment with the fact that nothing will ever be done if we stop try-

"O.K., Dad. I tell you what-I'll

you going to pay me?"
I looked down into the eyes of
my then eleven year old son and
suppressed a sadistic grin that
was about to break across my
face. This was one of those times
as a father that you dream about.
I get to pass on some information
given to me by my Dad ...
"Son, that ain't how it w6rks!

I should'a figured I was in
trouble when Jesse came In,one
day a few years back and an-
nounced that Uncle Leon was his
hero. Leon never met a yard that
he thought was worth mowing.
"Let it grow so you won't have to
paint the house" was, and is, his
motto. I remember Dad whipping
him for not mowing but for
the life of me today, I can't re-
member one time when he actu-
ally cut the grass. He'd somehow
talk me or David Mark into doing
it for him.
We were up at his house vis- '
iting last summer when Jesse got
to telling him how "down right
unreasonable" I was being about
the yard. Leon takes him out to
the garage and givps him a lawn-
mower! "Jess, it's Yazoo. Got
those big wheels on the back that
makes it easy to push. That big
engine ought to cut like crazy and
it's got one of those easy crank

Martin Paschall had a mower
like this years ago. He was the
envy of every yard cutter in town.

"walk" through the high grass.

On the morning of February 14, 1958, an urgent call was
placed to the president's office at Hinds Junior College in Raymond,
Mississippi. The message was to please get Wendell Campbell home
as quickly as possible because his father is extremely ill and is not
expected to live through the day.
President McLendon instructed his secretary to book me on the
fastest transportation from Jackson to Pensacola. She checked air
flights, buses and train schedules. The fastest way home, they told
me, was the bus-which would take about 12 hours.
When Coach Joe Renfroe relayed this news to,me, I asked him
if he would have'someone take me to Hwy. '#49 South in Jackson,
then I could beat the bus by many hours. Shortly after 9 a.m. that
morning I was let out at. the intersection of Hwy. #80 and #49
South and I' stuck out my thumb.
Within minutes a man picked me up and took me to D'Lo, Mis-
sissippi, a small town about 30 miles south of Jackson. After about
15 minutes: (at the most) a car stopped and as I ran toward it I
couldn't help notice the car had an Escambia County (Florida) li-
cense plate. I will never forget the man or that day. His name was
Mr. Herman Blue and he was a salesman for Spearman Brewery, a
now defunct business that was located .inPensacola.
At aboUt 4 p.m., Mr. Blue let me out in front of my home on
Live Road in Pensacola. I had saved about five hours and $50 hitch-

men picked' us up and we hadn't gone a mile before we realized they
were both drunk as Cooter Brown, whoever he was. The driver was
the drunker of the two, or so it seemed to us.

four of eight cylinders. When the driver tried to pass a car on Pala-
fox Highway, we almost didn't make it. When the man on the pas-
senger side adrhonished the driver for trying such a foolish thing,.

We asked to be let out at the next intersection and walked all
the way home.
There were many other instances like the one mentioned above,
in my hitchhiking career, even in those trusting days. Today, in my
opinion; a person would be a fool to hitchhike anywhere. With the
likes of people like Ted Bundy around, it's dangerous Just walking
down the street, much less asking someone for a ride. Hitchhiking
just isn't a safe way to travel, not now nor has it ever been. But I
'don't know what I would have done If I couldn't have hitched a ride
in those days. ,
By the way, it didn't matter about the trip home that February
day in, 1958: My father had died later that morning before I arrived
I .Javen't hitchhiked. one inch since I'bought miy first car the
year I graduated, from college.- And that's Just-half the story ....

Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.
Decaying teeth from nursing bottle caries is probably seen less
frequently today than in past years, but it is an important problem
that can be avoided, and is seen with a frequency that makes its
discussion worth repeating. .
What is nursing bottle caries? It is decay in a child's baby teeth
caused by keeping a bottle in his mouth all the time. This happens
with milk, but Is worse when, a child drinks juice from a bottle all
How can you avoid'bottle caries?
Several things can help you avoid the problem of caries. .
1. Begin teaching a baby to drink from a cup at about four.
months of age.i
2. Do not let him use a bottle as a pacifier.
3. Do not give juice from a bottle. (If he is old enough for juice,
-he is old enough to drink from a cup. In fact, juice is a good thing
to use in teaching the cup.) .
:4.. Do not let a baby keep a bottle nipple in his mouth after he
is asleep. .. -
5. Breast feeding your baby completely avoids the problem.
6. Give water to drink after foods ,cntaining sugar. .Infants
need water that has fluoride added as an additional aid against the
development of dental caries. .

another Circuit Court Judge posi-
4 tion for our circuit. It will be tilled
by election this September, and I
am a candidate for that seat.
Law students, court commen-
tators and those concerned with
current social issues are keenly
interested in the process for se-
lection of Supreme Court Justic-
es. When a high 'court vacancy
occurs, it becomes the first item'
on the nightly news.' Who is on
the short list? Who has the inside
track? How can. we expect each
potential nominee to vote on the
lightning rod issue of 'the day?
For the average person, the small
businessman and most lawyers,
that appointment is relatively in-
significant. The new justice will
be just one of nine. He or she will
participate in just 150 or so deci-
sions each year. and a large per-
centage of those decisions won't
even make the newspaper.
The election (or appointment)
of a circuit court judge has a far
greater practical impact on us all.
Our circuit judges average over
2,200 cases each year. They are
significant cases: felonies, suits
for damages in excess of $15.000,
real property disputes, divorces,
child custody and support, pro-
bate. etc. For those who must use
the court' system, a decision
made by a circuit judge may af-
fect them for the rest of their'
After the 1990 Judicial elec-
tions, one editorial Twriter critti-
) cized the candidates for failing to
be substantive in their 'cam-
paigns. He was right. He noted
that all of the candidates
"claimed to have experience and
integrity" and that each had.
"flags, families, and/or' hunting
dogs". That was true. The candi-
dates, however, should not be.
.Canon Seven of the 'code of
Judicial Conduct severely limits
the campaign activities of those
seeking judicial office. Beyond
promising to be "fair and impar-
tial", a candidate can say little.
Some argue that the Canon vio-
lates the First Amendment of the
United .States constitution. At
least one federal judge has
agreed. The Florida Supreme
Court, however, has refused to re-
move it from the Code of Judicial
Conduct. It remains the law for
that we should expect of our cir-
cuit judges, it is that' they must
follow the law. A candidate for
that office should surely do so.
If a candidate cannot speak
to important matters, how can we
intelligently select the person best
suited for the bench? It has been
my experience that what a person.

writer of the editorial.
A candidate who asks voters
to elect him based on reputation
is not asking them to vote in a
vacuum. To the contrary-voters
are asked to look at what the can-
didate has done, not what some
campaign professional would
have him say. A judicial cam-
paign requires news people to
shoulder their first Amendment
responsibilities. Reporting on a
judicial race requires legwork.
The candidates are not permitted
to run on "sound bites".
I believe that my performance
over the past 15 years shows that
I will be a good circuit judge. Ask
criminal defense attorneys about
my conduct as a prosecutor. They
will tell you that I was a straight
arrow. Ask police officers about
my handling of their cases. They
will tell you that I was hard-
working, energetic and cared
about the victims of crime. Court
files will show that I was success-
ful. My civil practice has been
more private than my work as a
prosecutor. The growth of my
practice, however, shows that I
maintain a good work ethic and
enjoy the confidence of my cli-
ents. The matters I have han-
dled-and the matters I have re-
fused to handle-indicate my
values; I will not take a case just
to collect a fee.
A judge should be more than
a successful lawyer. He or she
should have a commitment to his
or her community. How a person
chooses to serve his neighbor also
reveals aspects of his character.
Over the years I have served as a
director and officer in many or-
ganizatioins that should provide
Insight. Since 1986, I have been
on the Bay Regional Juvenile De-
tention Center Advisory Board. I
am the immediate past president
of the Bay County Council on Ag-
ing. I helped to initiate the Wid-
owed persons Service. I am on
the Surfside Middle School Advi-
sory Board. Each year I sponsor
youth soccer, .basketball and
baseball teams. Additionally. I am
asked to help organizations such
as the Chaplaincy Board, the
Junior Deputies, and law enforce-
ment organizations. This is the
platform on which I must run.
Now, as I begin my campaign,
I fully Intend to adhere to Canon
Seven with perhaps one excep-
tion. I make this pledge: Recog-
nizing that a lawsuit is personally
important to the litigants, I will
treat each case accordingly. I will
listen closely to the testimony giv-
en affording respect to each wit-
ness. I will then follow the law.
The editorial writer had one
other complaint. "Legal practi-
tioners, judges Included, speak a
language which the average man
or woman does not understand." I
hope that I have not been guilty
of this charge.

Feed Me A Book
We have read to all our kids from the earliest of ages. Now that the
older ones can read on their own, they still love to hear a story read.
Expert -'ay it helps a child's early language development. I believe
this, n as an expert, but as an experienced parent. Read to your
kids; it's good for them, and for you, tool
As one of ours began to talk, she would ask to be read to by ex-
claiming, "Feed me a book." A childish slip of the tongue may have re-
vealed more than a humorous anecdote. In the Bible, Ezekiel speaks
-of eating a scroll. It was sweet to his mouth and bitter to his stomach.
AI have had a few meals like that and have read a few books that could
be described so.
The advent of TV's and VCR's has eaten up so much of our leisure
time that few of us read much anymore. While TV is an important me-
dium of communication, it is a terribly lazy way to learn. In the diet of
By Rev. Steve Cloud
learning, TV, even at its best, is junk food compared to the nutritious
cuisine of good reading. Catherine Ramsey taught me ninth grade
English. I learned to write a good sentence and a decent paragraph
that year, but she also introduced me to one of the great joys of life-
reading for pleasure and not just business. To this day, I will take a
novel over a mini-series. The book is always better than the movie.
My work as, a Pastor demands that I read. But I sometimes grow
tired of that kind of reading, and as often as possible pick up a good
book just for the joy of reading. And I find that there is a practical side
to this as well. I generally find more sermons in a good novel than in
several commentaries and theological works.
Of course, I am a little biased when it comes to the matter of read-
ing the Bible. But, it is the book Of books. It is unparalleled in excite-
ment, drama, and even humor. It is top-notch literature. To bite into
the book called the Bible is to feed the, mind and to nourish the soul.
"Feed me a bbok"-what have you been eating lately?

Rev. William G. Mizelle
Letter to the Editor:
What Prices Are We Willing
to Pay for Gambling Casinos?
The casino gambling run-a-.
away express has gained what
appears to be an unstoppable
momentum. Just the other day
Chicago-based Bally Manufactur-
ing Company's president, Arthur
Goldberg, announced that two
and a half million dollars will be
poured into Florida to initiate
their petition drive to get on the
November ballot. Several other
such initiatives are already on the
street with hired solicitors hus-
tling signatures. Every publicist
in sight is being retained to,
spread their message. The two
and a half million dollars is only
a particle of what will be spent in
the State of Florida. A news ac-
count earlier, this month had the
gambling interest spending 170
million dollars in the State of Mis-
souri in a losing effort to add slot
machines to the already installed
riverboat casinos. They lost by
less than 1% and will surely be
back for another effort. Obviously
there is no limit how high they'll;
goQ.--io:ml -.the-'ripe-. harvest =that -
tourist-filled Florjda offers.'
Are we being taken for a ride?
You bet we are! Here, we have as
many as half a dozen competing
casino enterprises brazenly se-
lecting 'their gambling sites as if
the cities and counties were
theirs to divide up. This time they
are using a new bugaboo to
frighten us: 'The Indians are
coming!" They raise the cry that
unless we get there first, the indi-
ans will install casino gambling
on their reservations and reap the
profits. That's hogwash. The Indi-
ans now have multi-million dollar
bingo halls on their reservations
and I doubt ,that one tourist has
deserted our world famous Fon-
tainebleu1 Hotel for their bingo
cards. Do you see Disney World
or Busch Gardens quaking over
the loss of tourists to an Indian
gambling casino? There's no need
to' circle the wagons against an
Indian uprising. If we need the
calvary, it's to protect us from the
Las Vegas-type cowboys.
These 'are clever operators
and their underlying tactics are:
clear: Run a high powered. public-
ity barrage to soften the opposi-
tion; promise them pie in the sky;
then milk every quarter and dol-
lar out there. The leadership of
'the pro-casino forces are either
on their payroll or in it for per-
sonal gain. Almost piously they
remind us how our 'share will
create jobs, fight crime and aid
our schools. That's pure bunk!
Just. look at Atlantic City and Las
Vegas. Is that what we want our
cities to become?
The truth is that Floridians
never have an opportunity to fully
examine the implications of casi-
no gambling. Some objective
studies have shown that despite
all the puffery, casino gambling is
a financial drawback to the com-
munity. And, of course, plopping
dow a mega-casino in the middle
of Orlando, Jacksonville, Miami
or Tampa would literally destroy
their style and character. Add to
that how the social political and
cultural life of a community will
be totally dominated by the needs
and wishes of the gambling entre-
preneurs, and the promised bo-
nanza looks less promising.
Should these petition drives
result In a favorable vote to alter
the State Constitution, the imple-
mentation will be in the hands' of
our State Legislature. Our cities
will then be at the mercy of, the
legislative process. Will legislators
be easily swayed be the desires of
the gamblers? Few doubt the abil-
Ity of these powerful interests to
influence members of the S Legis-
lature. This will be the greatest
gravy train for lobbyists since the
days of Reconstruction following
the Civil War. Some of our legisla-
tors have already joined the pro-
casino bandwagon. The gaming
industry has a long, onerous his-
tory of corrupting public officials,
as shown in South Carolina and
Since state laws are of higher
.authority, what voice will a city
have to defend itself from this on-
slaught? In my city of Miami
Beach I have established a Casi-
nd 0Gambling Legal Task Force to
study what can be done to con-
trtl our own destiny. In the event
the gamblers prevail on the ballot
in November, how can we slow
this juggernaut down? Can new
zoning laws do it? Stricter code
enforcement? I'm not too optimis-
tic about our chances to over-
come what the Tallahassee law-
makers decree, but no other
options are open.
What is happening in Florida
is a classic case of greed prevail-
ing over common sense. The gam-
bling industry is smoothly and
skillftilly convincing our public of-
ficials that this easy windfall will
solve all our financial problems.
The public is beguiled and be-
witched by the flow of hype.
When these conquering hordes
enter our cities with their army of
croupiers. followed by busloads
from the hinterlands, we'll find
that the operators alone are rak-
ing In the chips. Cities may get a
taste of some added Income but
with that will come more prob-
lems than ever envisioned.
Many long established busi-
nesses and institutions will be
unable to survive in this oppres-
sive environment. For sure, a citi-
zen will no longer want to point
with pride to the charm and
uniqueness of his or her own city
when their neighborhood grocery
stores and shopping malls are
now sporting slot machines. The
slots, by the way, are the big prof-
it-makers, not the glitzy crap or
The one certainty: This reve-
nue drip-down may bring a few
jobs and a few bucks but it will
never-come close to being a major
tool in fighting crime or in build-
ing our schools. It hasn't hap-
pened in other places; why de-
lude ourselves in Florida?
Somehow,, those casino boys
know how to keep almost every
,nickel in their own leans.
Folks when that fellow with
a petition asks you to sign,
think twice about affixing your
name. This counterfeit dream
may be more than we can sensi-
bly handle. Let's not allow the
slicksters to take us over.
