Suspended Sheriff Al Harrison Strikes a Rebuttal Blow
After nearly two months of
negative publicity aimed his di-
rection by the news media from,
New Orleans to St. Petersburg,
Gulf County's suspended Sheriff
Al Harrison took the initiative in
interviews to the St. Petersburg
Times and television station
WMBB, telling his version of the
story which has piqued the inter-
est of people all over the South-
eastern United States.
In his interview, and printed
in the Times Harrison said he is
y running out of money and pa-
tience with an investigation of
him that has made headlines all
over the state.
In an interview with Times.
writer Lucy Morgan, Harrison
said, "All those, people I arrested
over 'the years got a hearing, and
we always wanted to make sure
they didn't lose their jobs, but no-
body cares at all about Al Harri-
son. I didn't think this could hap-
pen in America."
The Florida Department of
Law Enforcement has been inves-
tigating alleged claims of impro-
prieties in Harrison's office since
late March, but didn't come pub-
lic with their investigation until
Linda Richter, wife of Port St.
Joe's police chief Carl Richter,
was found dead of an apparent
overdose of a prescription drug.
It was revealed then that Mrs'
Richter was one of the FDLE's in-

Harrison told Ms. Morgan
that the day of Mrs. Richter's
death was the first time he knew
she was an informant for .the
FDLE or that she .was involved in
their investigation in any manner.
Since then, the FDLE has
been investigating the alleged
sexual harassment charges, in-
cluding his demands of sexual fa-
vors over, a long period of time.'
Harrison categorically denied the
sexual harassment charges, say-
ing. "I have been happily married
to my wife for 34 years. I'm hap- -

DEATH A TRAGEDY
Harrison labeled her death "a
tragedy" and denounced state in-
vestigators who have questioned
his failure to secure the site
where she was found dead. State
investigators say so many people
tramped through the area that
they can't determine whether
anyone was with Mrs. Richter
when she died.
Harrison said Wayne White,
chief investigator for State Attor-
ney Jim Appleman, was at the
scene with others from his office
and could have taken action to
secure the area. "We didn't con-
sider the location a crime scene.
We didn't.consider a crime had
been committed. All the indica-
tions were that she had taken her
own life and at the time nobody
felt differently," Harrison said.
Harrison said most of the
players in the drama were already
present at the scene when he ar-

THE STATEMENT MADE by John Casey of the Save Our
Sealife organization in Sunday's Panama City News-Herald
should galvanize every commercial fisherman Into action and
cause other citizens to be determined to vote "No" on the consti-
tutional amendment SOS is proposing to have approved.
It was apparent the members of SOS were calloused to the
point they didn't care what happened to the commercial fisher-
men should an attempt to put them out of business pass.
If such a non-caring statement, were to be made about news-
paper editors, we believe whoever made the statement would
have every newspaper in the nation castigating his statement
Sand his position in general.
MR. CASEY SAID, and we quote, '"They can change their
gear move offshore ...become guides. Many have
reached retirement age-they can retire."
Does that sound to you as if Mr. Casey gives two hoots in
hades what happens to commercial fishermen and their. fami-
Mr. Casey undoubtedly has a good. secure job. His family
doesn't have to depend on the vagaries of the sea to provide for
- them. All the sea has to provide for him is a trip to the briny
deep to catch a trophy fish to mount and place on his mantle, or
just allow to die and toss it back into the sea. doing nobody any
good except Mr. Casey's ego.
SMaybe Mr. Casey will resign from his cushy job and allow
'some fisherman, put out of work by his proposed no-net law, to
have his place. Turn about, you know.
WE DOUBT VERY MUCH if there are many commercial fish-
ermen out there who can expect very much except the minimum
Social Security payment when they retire, so there isn't much of
a future in that. A commercial fisherman is not eligible for Un-
employment Assistance, so that source of income is out. Of
course those who operate businesses like the ones here in Port
.St. Joe may have some retirement, but ownership of those oper-
ations are spread pretty thin among the fishermen.
We hope Mr. Casey doesn't mind too much. but we're going
to vote "no" to his net amendment and allow the fishermen to
continue to fish. Mr. Casey can just make some adjustments in
the way he fishes, find some other source of fishing guides. or
better yet, search out the fish himself. like a commercial fish-
When you do. Mr. Casey, leave your net at home!

Tommie Hill wasn't in a hurry. He

As promised in last week's article, I kept my date with the sur-
geon at Bay Medical Center on Thursday and, although it may be
disappointing to some of you, I made it Thus far, that is!
The surgery I had was to remove a couple of cystsr-one under
my right arm and the other close to a most private part of my
body-and to repair a "slight" hernia. Everyone knows where men
get hernias. In case you don't, it's close to that most private place I
mentioned in the previous sentence.

I'm glad to report that I weathered the surgery fine: That is, un-
til I awoke from the anesthetic. I have been in a constant state of
misery and pain since that moment, day and night. I feel as though
I have been in a massive knife fight and I was the only one without
But, don't get me wrong; I'm thankful I survived.
As I said last week, it had to be done. Itwas long past due, and.
since I have had it done, I feel it fitting that I advise you of some of
the "do's and don't" of post-surgery life, in the unlikely event that
you might face the surgeon's blade. Yes, the hospital gave me a list,
but it doesn't cover half the items you should be aware of after sur-
POST SURGERY DO'S AND DON'T
o DO expect (demand, if necessary) that the doctor give you a
large and powerful supply of*pain pills. Believe me, you will need
them if your pain tolerance is as low as mine Is.
' DON'T even think about coughing or laughing and forget what a
sneeze is. Believe me, a good laugh or a hard cough can be fatal: A
sneeze is sure death! (You can forget about the laugh. You won't see
or hear anything funny for several days after surgery.)
' DO expect to go without'sleep for about four days and nights. It
Is not human nature to sleep in one position all night, and that's
what one must do if one is to sleep, even with the help of pain pills.
e> DON'T expect to pick up anything for a week or two, and that
goes for a feather, the newspaper, or even the granddaughter'you
love so much. Well, you might, reconsider the granddaughter, but
leave the paper alone '
'> DO expect to lose your appetite. You'll be in so much pain day
and'night that food will be the last thing on your mind. No, wait.
Sex will be the last thing on your mind. Food will be the next-to-
last-thing on your mind. When you eat food, you must go to the
bathroom,. and when you go to the bathroom .... well. see below.
@ DON'T go to the bathroom at all! The first (and last) time I tried
it, it was like what my wife described when she had our last child.
There's no wonder she tried to kill me after she came out of the de-
V4 DO expect to, go without a shower for about a week. It is a NO-
NO to get ,the surgical dressings wet, so all one can do is "sponge
off'. As I write this article, I feel as though I have a coat of paint
over my entire body. Make that two coats.
' DON'T expect the phone to ring until you have gotten complete-
ly comfortable in your recliner and you are the only one at home.
And It doesn't matter that you have a portable phone: You will have
forgotten to bring it with you.
: DO expect a lot of kindness and sympathy from almost everyone
you know, especially if you write an article about it and publish it
in the paper in advance of your surgery. Most people are wonderful-
ly kind and helpful, but there are a few ... .well. see below.
G' DQN'T expect any sympathy from a few like the. "friend" who
called me the day after I got home and said, "What are you doing
home? I had'iny suit laid out for the funeral. Can't you do anything
And, lastly, if you must have surgery, try to have it done at Bay
Medical Center and have Dr. Ted Wilson do it. He and his staff and
the staff at BMC are some of the most professional, courteous and
friendly people I have ever met. I want to express a personal "Thank
You" to all of them and say, I hope to never see any of you again in
a professional capacity.
Having an operation ain't that much fun!

CHILDREN'S HEALTH FORUM
Playpens & Other
Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.
Small children learn to be well adjusted, capable adults In
small steps toward that goal. Each family needs a set of rules to al-
low development within guidelines. A child gradually adjusts to the
flmlts set for him and is a happier child than one who is allowed
complete freedom without any restraints.
A crying new baby will often respond to swaddling or wrapping
tightly and become more calm. Other placements include chairs,
cribs, playpens, gated rooms, seatbelts and harnesses.
After swaddling a newborn, the next recognizable restraint is
the crib. Babies become accustomed to the confining sides of the
crib and become happy and content when there.
' Infants can be changed from the' crib to the playpen and have
|e same reassuring environment. **
, When a child outgrows ihe'crib and playpen, the next step is to
have a room that has been baby-proofed and has a gate to confine
the child to this safe area while the parent is busy with other activi-
ties. The child can be allowed out of the room when the supervising
adult can devote undivided time to be sure the child Is safe.
From a room with-a gate. the next increase in area is a fenced
Other helpful restraints include seatbelts. Whether at the din-
bng table or in a car, belted children are much better behaved and
Harnesses are not used much anymore, but they are still a very
good way to keep track of a toddler who wants to explore everything
and often darts away without warning. The harness allows the tod-
dler to use both hands to balance himself, and not run the danger
-of having his elbow dislocated when he stumbles and his mother is
holding him by one arm.
There is definite literature written about beneficial effects of
keeping young children corralled. Those children who are gradually
given freedom and who grow up with restraints are said to be better
adjusted and happier adults.

Cabinet Opposes Casino
Gamblng..And So Do I!
Sometimes politicians do things right. The Florida Cabinet has
passed a resolution urging a no vote on casino gambling in the Sunshine
State and early reports indicate the new workers compensation law the
legislature passed last year is working. Glory be.
Florida voters said no to casino gambling in 1978 and 1986, but like
seven-year locusts the hucksters are back again. Gov. Lawton Chiles and
his-two Republican opponents, Secretary of State Jim Smith and Insu-
rance Commissioner Tom Gallagher, are on record as long-time oppo-
nents of casino gambling. So not many political points were made, al-
though Chiles authored the resolution.
It said the drive to allow casino gambling in Florida is a false and
shalloww promise" about the state's future and would lead to "criminal
activity and misconduct". Amen.
Take it from this old reporter who turned down an offer to work in
Nevada back in the 1960's because I realized one little-known honest
news man would sooner or later get an offer from the criminal element in
big-time gambling that couldn't be refused-like coming home to a head-
less wife in your bedl
Gambling is a way to exploit the hope of getting something for noth-
ing. In reality, even a "clean" state-run gambling operation is a breeding
place for crime.
,-Controls can, perhaps, keep a lottery like Florida now has honest,
but no one can police casinos sprouting all over the state or keep up with
the spin-off effects, including one recent discovery that gambling is the
nation's fastest growing teenage addiction, about twice that of adults.
Casino gambling glitters, alright. When you hit a jackpot, the band
plays and the rockets explode. But it's a different scene at the all-night'
cafes I occasionally checked out in Las Vegas, Reno, and Lake Tahoe
when I worked Northern California in the 60's., There was much wailing
and gnashing of teeth there by the poor suckers who had lost everything
to the casinos,.including the family farm and their personal honor.
,-The argument goes that everybody is doing the gambling thing now
so it must be alright. Not true. Nevada allows prostitution. Should Flori-
da legalize prostitution, too? Of course not.
There is plenty of healthy. wholesome entertainment and recreation
in Florida. We don't need gambling and all that goes with it. Just say no.,
again, again, again, and again, if necessary.
OTHER GOOD NEWS is that the Legislature was apparently moving
in the right direction when it overhauled the workers compensation law
last fall, amidst claims from labor unions and shyster lawyers it was
done on the backs of workers.
Remember the horror stories-told by small businesses that they were
being bankrupted by skyrocketing rates, litigation costs, and claims.
The Department of Labor reports lower rates for most companies and
the National Council for Compensation Insurers has announced it will
not seek a rate increase for next year.
SOne of the goals of the legislation was to wring-excessive litigation
from the system, because legal costs burdened both workers and employ-
ers. The number of cases filed since January when the law took effect
have dropped dramatically, from 48,732 in the first six months of '1993
to 22,183 in the first six months of this year.
The new law requires a dispute resolution procedure before any liti-
gation can begin. It has already avoided $13 million in litigation costs.
S Most of the complaints on the newi law have come from attorneys
whb iepreenhtedVworkegrs in lnjuitr claims, department spokesmen said.
State News Roundup
TALLAHASSEE (WNS)-Florida State University President Sandy
D'Alemberte suspended four Seminole. football players last week in a
move to head off NCAA penalties and announced he favored paying stu-
dent athletes for competing in college sports.
The suspensions-including All-American line backer David
Brooks-followed the sentencing of Nate Cebrun to a 30 day jail term for
acting as a street agent or "bird dog" for professional sports agents want-
ing to recruit Seminole football players.
Cebrun, of Las Vegas, pleaded "no contest" to not registering as a
sports agent in violation of Florida law and helping to organize a $6,000
spending spree for football players at a Tallahassee Foot Locker store last
November. Earlier, would-be sports agent Paul Williams and Doug An-
dreaus were arrested on the same third-degree felony charge. Williams
was given a 30-day jail sentence. Andreaus was fined $1,000.
Seminole Coach Bobby Bowden said the suspensions .of his players
was "excessive" but he felt it would ward off further penalties by the
Brooks and tailback Tiger McMillon were suspended for the first two
games of the season, offensive guard Patrick O'Neal for the first, three
games and starting tackle Forrest Conoly until he cooperates in the
schools' investigation into the Foot Locker incident. All four players were
involved in the shopping spree last year.
D'Alemberte's remarks to pay athletes "at least at the level of student
employment" came in Washington, D.C., at a congressional hearing on
college football. He also blasted sports agents who dangle cash and gifts
in front of players who have little income to get them to commit to their
Former Auburn player Eric Ramsey, who once made tapes of college
officials providing him with money, said at the hearing that players
should be paid $3,000 to $5,000 a month to pay for Division 1 teams.
Florida State University, which won the national football champion-
ship in January, is still under investigation on several fronts since it was
targeted in a cover article in Sports Illustrated headlined "Tainted Title"
that featured the shopping spree and cash payments to players.
Athletic Director Bob Goin has been suspended with pay as the Flori-
da Ethics Commission looks into charges that Goin got a new roof for his
house for less than the costs of the materials from the construction com-
pany that is building the $96 million University Center.

He is also charged with getting a job for his son with a contractor do-
ing business with the FSU sports department, abusing travel privileges
on state aircraft and signing over blocks of free tickets to Seminole foot-
ball games to the main University Center contractor when there were not
enough to go around for students.
Speculation in the capital beltway is that D'Alemberte will fire Goin
before the Ethics Commission, which has no authority to do it, makes its
The disclosures, beginning in the national sports magazine, sparked
a rash of investigations into the activities of the FSU sports department,
the latest being that 55 FSU people get the free iuse of an automobile
from a local Ford company. Included among the courtesy auto owners
are Goin, his wife Nancy, Coach Bowden and his wife Ann.
GOP RACES WARM UP: As Democrat Gov. Lawton Chiles practically
sits out the first primary race, Republican candidates came out swinging
against each other last week.
In TV ads and televised debates across the state, poll leader Jeb
Bush, a Miami real estate developer called public financing which his op-
ponents are accepting from the taxpayers: "welfare for politicians". He
portrays Sec. of State Jim Smith, Insurance Commissioner Tom Gallagh-
er, and former Senate President Ander Crenshaw as entrenched politi-
cians who favor more taxes and don't want to give taxpayers a say in tax
In turn, led by Smith, they contend Bush has had shady business
dealings in the past with questionable characters and doesn't need pub-
lic financing because he gets free fund-raising help from his family.
"How about welfare for millionaires walking away from $4.5 million
loans?" Smith asked.
"I need public financing because I'm running against Papa Bush,
Mama Bush, and the Shrub," cracked Smith.
The reference was to a former Bush business partner who defaulted
on a loan from a failed S&L. The federal government paid off most of the
loan, in a bailout. Various investigations into the incident have found no
wrongdoing by Bush.
"I want Jim to specifically accuse me of something, rather .than
spreading the same old tired innuendoes," a furious Jeb Bush replied.
All the Republicans seem to be desperately trying last week to break
away from the pack before the Sept. 8 primary and Oct. 4 runoffs. The
winner will face Gov. Lawton Chiles in the general election in November.
Chiles has only token resistance in the Democratic primary and millions
of dollars of public taxpayer money piling up in his campaign fund
thanks to the public financing law he steered through the Florida Legisla-
Bush leads the Republicans in the polls with 33 percent of the Re-
publicans supporting him, to 17 percent for Gallagher, 16 for Smith, 10
for Crenshaw, and 2 percent for right-to-life advocate Connor.
They agreed in debates the U.S. was not enforcing its immigration
laws. Crenshaw and Smith said they'd rent a bus and ship Illegal aliens
up to Washington to spend the weekend with Bill Clinton.
Gallagher vWould get the state to require proof of legal immigration
status from people seeking a driver's license, and Bush said he'd 'put
pressure on Congress because shipping aliens to Clinton is a "great ap-
plause line" but really wouldn't get the lob done.
On saving tax dollars. Smith would hold fewer legislative sessions in
Tallahassee. Gallagher wouldn't hold them without a consensus of law-
makers. Crenshaw would depend on fighting waste through leadership
(his) and Ken Connor, Tallahassee attorney, would not accept a pension
if he is elected governor. Bush agreed with Connor and pledged he
wouldn't accept a pension, either.
All the Republican candidates wanted to end early releases for prison
inmates and require longer sentences.
One questioner-a Dominican from Tampa-couldn't get a specific
answer from the candidates on what they would do for blacks until Bush
"Probably nothing. I think what we ought to do is to have a society
where you go out and pursue your dreams and you're not punished. .
where there is equality of opportunity, not equality of results."
