Traylor received publicity for

Traylor had 'requested the

Thursday to cast their ballots in the first pri-
mary election.
In Gulf County, only Bob Moore and Oscar
Redd* came out as winners in the first primary
election. Redd rolled over the challenge of Betty

bent Billy Traylor won Gulf County's first-ever
Republican primary by defeating challenger
Jim Beatty, collecting 74% of the ballots cast.
Traylor polled 117 Republican votes for nomi-

Wewa Voters
Wewahitchka voters decided to opt for a new regime
when they went to the polls Tuesday, in the municipal
election.
I Both incumbents., Earnest Morris-and Olivia Landry.
were swamped by their opposition as a total of 550 vot-

Only 41% of the City's 1,296 registered voters went
to the polls and marked. their preference of the candi-
dates.
Two Commission posts were up for election, with two
candidates in each group. Harold Armstrong easily won
election in Group I, winning by 139 votes over incum-
bent Earnest Morris. Armstrong polled 344 votes to Mor-
ris' 205.
Ben Nunnery also unceremoniously shoved the in-
cumbent out of office, defeating Olivia Landry by 146
votes. Nunnery collected 348 votes in his favor and
Landry counted only 182.
Both Armstrong and Nunnery will take over their
newly elected posts at the regular commission meeting
October 3 at 6:30 p.m. Both were elected for two year
terms.

Traylor retorted that he asked
for the material and had it hauled
to his district. "I am elected by
the people of District Two to look
out for their interests. I'm doing
just that. You had an opportunity


to secure the asphalt for your dis-
trict, but you didn't ask for it. I
did!" he said, in defending his ac-
tions.
"If I could get some more, I
would get it in a heartbeat. It did
what we needed done very well. It

Richter's


Death Is

Ruled A


Suicide

In FDLE Report to
Governor Chiles
After nearly two full weeks
with no new revelations in the
case, the FDLE investigation of
the office of Sheriff Al Harrison
this past week resolved one ques-
tion but took on new investigative
action on another question.
Wednesday _afternoon, the
FDLE released information that
they had determined Linda Rich-
ter, wife of Port St Joe Police
Chief Carl Richter had died of
suicide.
An FDLE Investigation into
the cause of her death 'had been
initiated and Sheriff Al Harrison
removed from office on an order
by Governor Lawton Chiles, fol-
lowing that early morning on
June 1, when she had been found
lying in a ditch, dead, on Roberts
Road near Overstreet.
Former Sheriff Al ,Harrison
told The Star last Friday that his
attorney, Bob Kerrigan of Pensa-
cola, will be filing papers with
Governor Chiles to reinstate Har-
rison to his position. Originally,
he had been removed from office
pending the Investigatlon Into the
cause of Richter's death.
UNDER INVESTIGATION
Harrison also stated it had
been revealed to him on the same
day that Richter was a cooperat-
ing witness for FDLE in an inves-
tigation of allegations pointing to
sexual improprieties in his office
with both Richter and jailed fe-
male inmates. FDLE said they
wanted to see what the connec-
tions were In the case. if there
were any, and that Harrison was
interfering with the, investigation.
FDLE's report Wednesdayu ap-
parently cleared Sheriff Harrison.
of any involvement in her death,
by declaring that her death had
been suicide caused by an over-
dose of a prescription drug, Pam-
elor. Tentative declarations were
uncertain with the medical exam-
Siner saying he was uncertain
whether err death was caused by
"assisted'! drowning, or by the
drug overdose.
FBI ON CASE
The Federal Bureau of Inves-
tigation also actively initiated
their entrance into Investigation
of the case, looking for evidence
of sexual harassment on Harri-
son's part, during the operation
of his office.
The FDLE had been looking
into sexual improprieties from the
very beginning of their investiga-,
tion. Along with their report
Wednesday, the FDLE released
two letters said to be written by
Mrs. Richter, describing how Har-
rison had allegedly demanded
sexual favors from her. This is
the charge the FBI was called on
to investigate.
According to acting Sheriff

State Cabinet Approves

Purchase of Bay Shore

1,178 Acres in Treasure Shores
Vicinity Numbers 18th on CARL List
A tract of land, said to be 1,178 acres, along St. Joseph Bay
was approved for purchase by the state Cabinet in action Tues-
day, in a $2.1 purchase deal. The property includes approxi-
mately 563 acres of submerged property presently under private
ownership.
The acreage set for purchase, stretches northward from the
point where St. Joseph Peninsula connects with the mainland to
and including Treasure Shores. Most of the tract lies along the
Bay, but about half lies on the east side of county road 30A. The
land has been marked for purchase under the state's Conserva-
tion and RecreationLands [CARL] list of endangered lands. It is
18th on CARL's shopping list.
The purchase serves to protect an aquatic preserve designa-
tion for St. Joseph Bay, made a few years ago. The state has its
eyes on nearly 7,000 acres of Bay shore property in its interest
for protecting environmentally sensitive lands throughout the
state.
Tuesday's approved purchase of land is presently owned by
William C. Grimsley, Jr., Charles E. Faircloth and L. Charles Hil-
ton, Jr., all of Bay County. The trio has partially developed a
small portion of the property into a private sportsman's lodge
and acreage.

Firm Footing


City Must Address to Zone
Requirements for Protection

THE CITY COMMISSION is on a firm foundation by putting
the brakes on the ,run-away practice of granting variances al-
most on request. The practice had grown so far out of hand, till
it was beginning to cause problems when they denied a property
owner a variance as requested.
The variances were to wipe out rules promulgated to protect
the safety of a person's home or building. The city's rules weren't
nearly so demanding as requirements from state and federal
government sources and probably kept the establishment of
harsher regulations at bay.
When the building ordinance was passed in Port St. Joe, the
construction practices were governed by a '"you do it, or we will
do it for you and you don't want us applying our regulations"
type of encouragement. .The recent comprehensive plan put more
teeth in the regulation and declared just how many dwellings
would be allowed per acre if the political subdivision didn't come
up with some reasonable regulations of its own.
PORT ST. JOE'S building regulations require a minimum of
regulation, such as required space between buildings, in order
to protect a neighboring dwelling from also being burned should
the one with a variance catch fire. Such protection. actually re-
quires more space than is currently called for but people are
flocking to the Commission like Cubans to Florida, to remove all
protection from their future homes by allowing them to be built
too close together.
When the Commission grants a potential home builder a'var-
iance to encroach on that imaginary safety zone with an over-
hanging roof, a carport, a porch, or other invasion of the re-
quired margin between the building and the property line, it is
actually doing him a dis-favor.
It's actually in the home owner's own best interest and pro-
tection to fully abide by the required empty space. Also, it pro-
tects both the new home builder and his neighbor as well. The
savings on fire insurance premiums are felt by everyone who
purchases that service inside the city. The Commission is not
being hard-hearted here, they are being realistic to the needs of
safety.



Save The Nets!
THE FISHERMEN ARE COMING out swinging in the fight to
preserve their nets in Florida. One of their more effective tactics,
we think, would be to educate the people of Florida as to just
how necessary they are to the (economy and to the lifestyle of
both Florida and this United States.
Let's take the close-to-home example of Apalachicola, for in-
stance.'
Apalachicola is booming People are coming from far and
wide and spending real money, just to be a part of the rustic
sea-faring, fishing life and its aura of adventure. The fishing life
Sis important to many people of this United States. It is one of the
basic industries. like making steel or automobiles.,
To do away with nets is:to destroy that lifestyle.
ISN'T THE WHOLE PURPOSE of banning the nets, so the
seafood will supposedly be preserved? We take it the commercial
fishermen and their nets are being charged with destroying the
sea life. Why not aim at a larger circle in the -target? Why not
take the barbs off fishhooks? According to U.S. Government sta-
tistics, week end fishermen catch 80% of the fish that are
caught. The only problem with week end fishermen is that they
either throw their catch away or give it to friends, who throw it
away, rather than be bothered with cleaning them.
Keep in mind, the U.S. Government report which says week
end fishermen catch 80% of the edible fish don't count those fish
which get thrown away. They count only those fish. which are
landed to be weighed or measured for bragging rights and then
thrown away.
READING THE MAGAZINE section in Sunday's newspaper,
we read where we will all be healthier and weigh less if we will
eat more seafood. especially the fish which contain more oil.
Where are we going to get these fish to eat and maintain
good health, if we take, the nets out of the hands of the fisher-
men?
So, we have a stake in the matter, too. Our good health and
longevity depends on keeping those fishermen on the job netting
mullet, mackerel, trout and other oily fish for us to consume.
Which is more important, your health, or your neighbor be-
ing able to catch a fish to throw away?


Jess came home the other
night after the football game

playing football, Dad?"
"No, Son. Just the usual
bumps and scrapes."
'You mean, you never broke
your leg or anything?" Crazy
youngun, he almost sounded dis-
appointed. ."What do you remem-
ber most about your high school
football days?"
I pondered on that for a few
minutes. It.has been nearly thirty
years...


"Son. I did see a guy split his
chin wide open-he bled like a
stuck hog for an hour!"
"How did it happen? Did you
tackle him? I bet you busted him
good just as he was about to
score the winning touchdown?"
Jess and I laid across the bed
as my mind went back.........
First of all, I never "busted"
anyone, I was a mediocre player
at best. I was usually the hit-ee,


no the hit-er. We did have some
guys that could play and we did
win-but mostly we had fun.
It was Johnny Stoker that
busted his chin and it happened
in the shower after practice. The
shower room had this six-inch lip
across-the door to keep the water,
I guess, from running into the
dressing room. Every day, we'd
stop up the drains with towels,
turn on every shower, fill up our
"pool", back up to get a good run-
ning start, and flop head first into
the water trying to glide the entire
length of the room. We, probably
spent more time at this than we
did on the practice field. Johnny
was trying to get a couple of extra
steps and he "took off' way too
late. He hit the back wall, chin
first, at about forty miles an
hour. We got some of those but-
terfly bandages out of the training
room and taped him back togeth-
er. We liked to have never got the
bleeding stopped! We couldn't tell
anybody because of the way it
happened. We all agreed (and
took the appropriate oath) that
Ricky Gene had accidently kicked
Johnny when we were working on
that X-28 reverse play. I saw
Johnny a few years back-he was
grinning from ear to ear as al-
ways and we both immediately
went to "remembering" the day he
picked up the scar still very
prominent on his chin.'..
We'd roll up a wet towel and
go to war. It was an art to pop it
just as it reached the intended
victim's skin. I've seen rookies
'step out of the shower and get hit
from all sides. Some days we'd di-
vide into teams and fight for an
hour. I've seen the whole locker
room-shoes, clothes, watches;
chalk board-dripping wet. Moth-
er would eye the red whelps
across my back and inquire-
"Jersey burn; it's a rough
game, Mom." She didn't know
much' about football.
Most every day the conversa-,
tion would get around to girls.
Listen, you could find out any-
thing you needed to know about
any girl in school by hanging
around after practice. Soifietimes
you could find ouf too much-!One
day we got to talking about Milli-
cent Blackburn. It was the usual
stuff about how she looked,
walked, talked, kissed-well, it
got down to who kissed the best,
Millicent, Jane Hill, or Edna Mae
Kirksey. Yogi was going on about
it being close between Millie and
Edna Mae. Marlin Hicks suggest-
ed we call 'em both and have a
kiss off. We were all just laughing
and carrying on when Squeaky
Ridinger kinda' casual like asked
Yogi how he had "come to know"
the kissing abilities of Edna Mae.
Seems Yogi had stopped by the
Kirksey's Sunday night and Edna
Mae was on the porch...by her-
self...
'"That's a lie!"
"Is not!"
'Yes, it isl" Squeaky was
mad, and I was scrambling to re-
member if I'd seen Edna Mae and
Squeaky together at school.
Blap! Squeaky hit Yogi high
up on. the chest-knocked him

I'M A DAY LATE with prepar-
ation of this' blurb this week. I
didn't follow my usual routine
last week end and I didn't get it
prepared on Thursday afternoon,
as I usually do. I procrastinated
to the point of not even coming to
work Thursday.-
You would be surprised how
many people that disturbed! Eve-
rywhere I went Friday, trying to
make up some of my lost steps, I
would come across such remarks
as, 'Where were you yesterday?
Were you on vacation? Were you
sick?" One person also asked,
with a sort of wistful tone in his
voice, "I thought maybe you had
met with a terrible accident and
you were deadly"
I'm sorry [or proud] to say;
neither supposition was correct.
We don't take vacations here at
The Star like most normal folks
do. We just take a day or two off
around a week end and call it a
vacation. I can see how these peo-
ple would be disturbed, however,


ETAOIN SHRDLU


By Wesley Ramsey


since Thursday wasn't a holiday.
It was election day, but it wasn't
a holiday.

YOU: SEE, HERE at our
house, we have a member of the
family going off. to college. We
postponed by one week, what Kes
went through last week.
I had asked Eric back in July
-if there was something he would
like to do, after his baseball play-
ing schedule was over, before he
went off to college.
Well, Eric was ready for that
one. He shot right back, "I'd like


to go to Branson, Missouri before
I go off to school."
He had me there. I had
asked, so I said, "OK, You make
the arrangements and I'll just 'o
along with you!"
This suited Eric just fine arid
he started talking Branson. Bdtt,
Ip and behold, the middle of Ati-
gust he came back to me asd
said, "Papaw, [all grandsons cAll
me 'Papaw'] if it's all the. same to
you, I'd just like to take a deep
sea fishing trip with the guys in
the shop before I go."
So, I contacted my old high


school buddy, Chuck Guilford,
and told him what I wanted,
Chuck scheduled us right in for
last Thursday.

WE REPORTED IN AT the
boat at 7:00 a.m. and set out over
the briny deep to the second
stump on the right after you pass
the main bend in the "creek", to
the snapper and grouper beds. ,
There was Eric, Bill, David
'[son-in-law], Chris, Pat, myself,
and a guy by the .name of Gary
Smith who told us he was the
new pastor of the First Baptist
Church and lived across the
street from Eric. Willie wouldn't
go. He said he got seasick in the
bathtub and would not go under
any circumstances. Bill said he
was prone to sea-sickness, too,
but ate dramamine and bought a
patch to go behind his right ear,
just to make sure he didn't this
time.
Chuck shut us up inside the


cabin of the boat and locked the
door as he went outside with the
mate, Greg Fletcher. The boat
took off and for all we knew, there
was no one driving We stopped
and stole live bait out of some-
one's bait trap several times be-
fore we reached the end of the
Mexico Beach Canal.

ERIC HAD PURCHASED a
sack full of goodies to eat while
we were fishing, which contained
two dozen cans of vienna sausag-
es, potted meat, several packages
of peanut butter crackers, etc.,-
just a little "snack"-and ended
up eating half of them.
I announced to everyone I
just wanted to catch a grouper
and I would be satisfied. Finally, I
hooked what seemed to be the
bottom of the ocean and started
attempting to reel it in. Several
minutes, a hurting back and two
rubber knees later, I reeled in
about a 30 inch grouper. I had
set the pattern for the rest of the


crew, so I took it easy the rest of
the trip.
I sat and talked over old
school days with Captain Chuck
while, the rest sweated away reel-
ing in the trigger fish.
"Captain Chuck" was Charles
Guilford when we went to school.
He worked his way up to a colo-
nel in an armored division of the
army and. retired. Now he is a
captain of a fishing boat. He re-
tired from the army after about
20 years and took a demotion in
rank for his new job.
He put us on the fish, howev-
er. We caught about 150 pounds
of edible fish, including snapper,
kings, grouper, and, of course,
trigger fish!
I told the fellow who identi-
fied himself as the preacher of the
First Baptist Church, who kept
trying to catch a larger grouper
than I had landed, "Preacher, you
just need to keep your tithe paid
up!'.

ties here in Port St. Joe.
'Coats said they showed up'
Thursday, just as requested, and
spent from an hour and a half to
two hours familiarizing them-
selves with the lay-out of the de-
partment.
'They wanted to see where.
everyone was located and how the
office was arranged so they would
be familiar with what any poten-
tial witness was describing,"
Coats said.
The acting Sheriff said they
didn't reveal what the nature pf
their investigation was to be nor
who was to be contacted. "They
didn't give out information,"
Coats said, 'They just looked,
asked a, few questions about
where the offices were and who
occupied them and they left," he
said.
There was no contact made
with any potential witnesses and

It seems like just a few weeks back that our granddaughter
arrived on the scene. Actually, it was a year last week. Already, she
is walking, tooling around trying to investigate every ndok and cran-
ny. She is just beginning to say a few words. Time sure flies when
one is having fun, doesn't it?
SA week at the beach is a lot of fun: Two weeks. is too much. If
you are to stay two weeks, you might as well move there for the
summer. Not a bad idea if one could afford it. I wonder how long it'
will take to get the sand out of everything.
e If the defense team for O.J. Simpson has its way, they will
lock up the entire Los Angles police department and let O.J. go free.
I wouldn't be at all surprised if a few detective's heads rolled after
the dust settles....if it ever does.. The police probably made who-
ever-done-it do it, anyway. Well, that's what the defense would like
the jury to believe.
=- That was a terrible tragedy, the US Air plane crash in Penn-
sylvania last week. I don't have a particularly weak stomach, but I
couldn't stand to read the details of it in the newspaper.
@ If you have any doubts about here being a drug problem in
Florida, you should watch the program, CRIME, INC., on the Dis-
covery Channel that I watched last week. If I heard right, they said
that illegal drugs was the No. 1 industry in the state at this time,
and growing. And that's just what they know about.- That being
true, or even close to the truth, something has to be done quickly. I
have no idea what the answer is. Do you? y
SI wonder who Michael Jackson and Lisa Marie Presfy-
Jackson think they're fooling. Not me, that's for sure. Maybe a,
bunch of the MTV rappers and rockers. ,
Hugh Rodham, President Hillary's brother, scored big in the
recent primary. Hillary and Bill may not be elected next term, but
they're trying to keep a "toe-hold" in the government, it seems. They
may not be able to pull this one off, though. Hugh 'has got a long
row to hoe before he gets to Washington. Good luck, Senator Mackl
It's a downright shame that eating raw oysters has become
such -a dangerous business. There's nothing I love more than raw
oysters, especially during the winter. I wonder if the mild winters
we've had recently have anything to do:with oysters becoming con-
taminated. Whatever the problem, I've sworn off eating them raw,
and that's the way I love them best.
@ I still don't know what to think about all the turmoil going on
here in Gulf County. If I thought half the rumors I've heard were
true, I would move to another state. Fortunately, as we all know,
they are not....thank goodness!
I really thought the world would be at peace when Russia
went to smithereens, but now we are about to invade Haiti. And
what about Cuba? What's going to happen down there? And, what
about the rest of the trouble spots in the world? What, pray tell, 'is
going on? "Lawe, gee!" as my mother used to say about desperate
situations.
According to recent news reports. President (Bill) Clinton has
started a "pro-family" agenda. In a recent speech he referred to fam-
ilies of the 1950's as being the kind of families wve need today. It
may be too little too late, Mr. President! .

no strategy revealed.
"Any reports to the contrary
are mere supposition on the part
of somebody," Coats said.
CHANGES MADE IN OFFICE
In the meantime Coats said
changes 'are being made in the
Sheriffs office. From physical
changes in the office to accommo-
date the central office of the new
911 system, to new personnel be-
ing added.
Coats said Michael Lewis has
been employed as a correctional
officer for the department. "This
position was open," according to
the interim Sheriff. After October
1, an additional deputy will be
added to the staff. Two dispatch-
ers-Tony Lee and Richard Bur-
kett-have been added in place of
several part-time dispatchers.
Deputy Bobby Shirah has re-
signed this past week and will be
replaced by a new deputy.
Coats said the office was in
the process of being pleaned up
and records brought up to date. "I

ka is pulling out of the agreement
to operate its Williamsburg water
system because they can't get the
people to pay the water bills.
Butler said, "Their only alter-
native is to cut it off and that
cuts off their sewer service also."
Michael Hammond remarked,
"Most of. those people ,broke up
theirsepUc tanks when we put
the system in. They would have
no sewer service if the water is
cutoff."
Chairman Yeager asked,
"How many, haven't paid their

They weren't allocated enough
funds for them," Coats said.
'We're getting them done and
hopefully, we'll still end up In the
black by the end of the year."
When asked how much long-
er the investigation was expected
to take. Coats replied. "I have no
idea. I thought originally I would

months. The three months were

Traylor said.
Traylor said the asphalt went
to anyone who called for it.
Chairman Warren Yeager re-
marked that if he had thought of
it, he would have had some of the
asphalt for his district as well.
"There certainly wasn't anything
illegal about it," Yeager remarked.
He suggested, "to keep dissension
among the Board members down"
that. the County follow' a proce-
dure for receiving such gifts in
the future. He asked attorney
Barbara Sanders to come up with
such a procedure.
Miss Sanders said she would'

that, ',The county doesn't act ex-.

courage the people to pay."
The citizens of Williamsburg
asked for the system for over 10'
years before it was finally in-
stalled, utilizing grants.
UNION PROBLEMS
The Board had their union
district representative Wallace
Brannon, come before them with
a complaint. ,Brannon, accompa-
nied by several of the county em-
ployees, made a presentation
claiming the county had violated
the contract by increasing the
pay of two truck drivers.
Brannon complained' the
workmen were allowed to come
directly to the Board rather than
follow procedure.
Chairman Yeager became a
little miffed with Brannon and his
complaint, replying, "I am a un-
ion member, too, so I am sensi-
tive to their needs. This action on
our part didn't seem to suit you
because i went around you. We,
have-menr up here. at nearly every .
meeting wanting something, most
of which we work out with them.
Most "recently we made some
changes on a machine, after we
had complaints by two of these
men with you, that the operators
seat was unprotected and got too
hot. But this action, which in-
creased the pay of two drivers by
a small amount has you both-
ered. Why?"


Brannon said he was there
simply because the Board had
not gone by procedure.
Yeager said, "Neither did the
men, but we got accomplished
what they wanted. What do you
want us to do in this matter?"
Brannon replied, "Revert the
two men back to their former pay
and insist that they follow proce-
dure in 'approaching manage-
ment."
Yeager said, "From .now on.
we'll strictly follow the rules; on
both sides."
OTHER BUSINESS
In other business the Board
took the following action:
-Approved of a lease agree-
ment presented by solid waste di-
rector, Joe Danford. The lease
was for a tub grinder" to grind
up debris at the landfill site, pre-
paring the material for sale as
fuel. The lease is to be paid by re-
cycling grants.
.i ''-Danfdrd' also announced
-the receipt of $75,000 in grant
funds for use at Beacon HFll Park.
The -county is responsible for
$25,000 to match the grant.
--On motion by Nathan Pe-
ters, the Board designated Mi-
chael Hammond as Its chairman
for next fiscal year. Hammond is
to take over at the first meeting in
October. Commissioner Jesse
Armstrong is to be vice-chairman.

State Cabinet Opposes Casino Gambling in Florida


Gov. Lawton Chiles and the
Florida Cabinet recently voiced
their opposition to amendments
aiming to legalize casino gam-
bling in Florida.
At the regularly scheduled
Cabinet meeting, the governor,
presented a resolution calling ca-
sino gambling a "false and shal-
low promise about Florida's fu-r
ture". The cabinet! unanimously
adopted the resolution, formaliz- -


ing their opposition to casino.
gambling in Florida.
'The people of Florida and
our elected leaders oppose casino
gambling," said John Sowinski,
campaign director for No Casinos.
"Cabinet members have joined
Florida sheriffs and local govern-
ment leaders across Florida in go-
ing on the record against casino
Gambling.
'The gambling interests keep


saying casinos would be good for
Florida," Sowinski said. "Nothing
could be farther from the truth.
The truth 'is, casinos are gobd for
only one thing-casino interests.
Casinos will never bring promised
jobs and revenues. They only
bring huge social and economic
costs, increased crime, high regu-
latory costs and a great diminish-
ment in our quality of life."
The resolution points out that


casinos would cause serious
problems related to crime and the
,economy. It notes that casino
gambling "more than any other
industry, has a higher propensity
for criminal activity and miscon-
duct..." and that "increases in
criminal activity can significantly
affect personal property values
and decrease the salability of res-
idential homesteads and commer-
cial properties... .".

Nets Appropriate for Statute Books


The Constitution
vs.
A Fisherman's Net
SUPREME COURT OF FLORIDA
Case No. 81,394 June 17,1993
"I am concerned however that
the net fishery. amendment is
more appropriate for inclusion in
Florida statute books than in the
state constitution..." Justice J.
McDonald, Supreme Court of
Florida Justice.
I am a third-generation native
of Hillsborough County who has
been involved in salt and fresh
water fishing my entire life. I am
the former United States Marshal
for the Middle District of Florida
and recently ended eight years as
a member of the Florida Marine
Fisheries Commission. I continue
to serve as a member of the At-
lantic States Marine Fisheries
Commission from Maine to Flori-
da. I am a sports 'fisherman with
no personal agenda other than to
maintain the health and abun-
dance of the marine resources
while implementing conservation
and management measure fairly
and equitably to, all the people oJ
Florida; so that no individual, cor-
poration or entity acquires an ex-
cessive share of such privileges
(Florida Statute 370.025).





SWhiplash,
Auto Accidents

SLeg/Foot Pain
ACCEPTED


The Commission has adopted
over 125 pages of rules since its
inception in 1983 with the vast
majority being levied against the
commercial fisherman who sim-
ply supplies the consumer that
doesn't fish, doesn't want to fish,
can't fish, or can't .afford to fish.
The fisherman is merely the con-
duit to bring -fresh fish to the
public market for the voters and
the non-voters to purchase. The
work is hard and the income is
marginal.
Florida coastal fishermen,
both recreational and commer-
cial, should continue to be regu-
lated by the Marine Fisheries
Commission based on the best
available biological and scientific
data, not by a popularity contest
based on who has the most
players and the best advertising
campaign. To eliminate those who
provide the consuming public
through the coastal restaurants,.
fresh markets, etc, would be to
eliminate an historic class of
Americans who 'take great pride
in providing the public with fresh
seafood.
The Marine Fisheries Com-
mission has severely restricted
nets in Florida waters even when
data shows 85+ percent of a par-
ticular species is being taken by
the sport fisherman (D.E.P Aug.,
1994 Red Fish Stock Assess-
ment)..
The Constitution is no place
to regulate fishermen. Leave it to
the Marine Fisheries Commission
to -regulate and if needed "ban
nets" in Florida waters based on
biology, science, sociology and ec-
onomic factors. The Supreme
Court of Florida in their advisory
opinion to the Attorney General
regarding this proposal to be
placed on the ballot as a Consti-
tutional amendment on Novem-
ber 8 stated:
"I am concerned however that
the net fishery amendment is
more appropriate for inclusion in
Florida statute books than in the
state constitution... Recognizing
the sovereiqnntq of the people, I still
ill / '*. 1


feel compelled to express my view
that the permanency and supre-
macy of state constitutional jfuris-
diction is Jeopardized by the re-
cent proliferation of constitutional
amendments." J. McDonald; Jus-
tices Barkett, Overton and Kogan
concur. "Advisory Opinion to the
Attorney General Limited Marine
Net Fishing" June 17, 1993.
Vote against proposed Consti-
tutional Amendment #3 to ban
fishing nets in Florida waters on
November 8.
The Marne Fisheries Com-
mission should continue to regu-
late salt water fishermen based
on the best information available,
including biological, sociological.
economic, and other information
deemed relevant by the Commis-
sion, (Florida Statute 370.025).

Thank You, Voters!

You may have noticed the race for Gulf County Judge was
different from other races and past campaigns. There were
no signs littering the right-of-ways; there were no derogatory :
attacks; and there was no hostility. The race was conducted
with the dignity you should expect from your prospective
County Judge.
Such a race is possible when the candidates respect each
other and respect the people they request to serve. Candi-
dates simply run for the same position. It is not necessary
they run against anyone nor against anything.

I thank each voter. Regardless of the candidate for whom you ;
may have voted, you are commended for voting. By voting
you demonstrated you care about Gulf County.

Next, I thank Fred Witten. He conducted himself throughout
the campaign with honor. I congratulate his family and
. friends for their support of him. I extend to Fred my appreci-
&0 action and best wishes as he resumes his responsibilities with
&; the State Attorney's Office.
W0. In closing, please accept my deep appreciation for the confi- ;
dence you placed in me. Daily, I will strive to merit your con-
tinued trust. Please remember me in your prayers.

Sharks Edge Chipley, 22-20


The Sharks made some cor-
rections during the week and re-
duced their penalties, while im-
proving on their blocking and
adjusting their attitude, to come
back and hand the Chipley Tigers
a 22-20 defeat.
The game saw the Sharks col-
lect only 40 yards of penalties, as
opposed to 95 in their defeat at
the hands of the Wewahitchka
Gators the week before.
The Sharks stayed on the
ground most of the night, with
quarterback Barry Adkison toss-
ing the ball up only three times.
Ninamdi Frazier was "as ad-
vertised" ,.on the ground, carrying
the ball 17 times, gaining a whop-
ping 152 yards, two-thirds of the
Shark offense for the night.
The defense seemed to wake
up for the game Friday, stifling
Chipley plays, for down after
down. Rocky Quinn was in on'
,play after play, breaking up ef-
forts of the Tigers to get moving.;
Des Baxter roamed all over the
secondary, knocking down pass-
es and tripping up runners. Rob-


ert Williams stuck up his long
arm and knocked down an Eric
Berry pass at the line of scrim-
mage and had numerous tackles
for the evening. Chris Williams
and Chad Quinn saved at least a
touchdown each. Williams was
the only defender between Corey
Masseline on a long gainer in the
second quarter. Justin Summers
and Josh Bateman were out-
standing on the line.
SHARKS SCORE EARLY
The Sharks scored early in
the first quarter as Frazier came
roaring through the defenders,
then veered to the outside and
raced down the sidelines for 42
yards to a touchdown, with pix
and a, half minutes remaining in
the opening quarter. Adkison's
kick was just wide but the
Sharks had a 6-0 lead.
Again, with only 1:21 remain-
ing in the first period, Chad
Quinn ripped through the line
from eight yards out to put up
the second TD. An attempted
two-point conversion effort fell
short and the score was now 12-
0.


and hauled it in after juggling it
down the line, but the Sharks
couldn't take advantage of the
break.
With the third quarter wind-
ing down, Swain, the Tigers'
workhorse, took the ball in from
seven yards with :22 seconds left
in the period, to draw the Tigers
within five points.
Then, in the third quarter,
with the Sharks facing a punting
situation, after seeming to be
mixed up on a couple of plays,
the Tigers blocked a Adkison
punt. Massaline scooped up the
loose ball and raced 55 yards for
the score which put the Tigers in
the lead for the first time in the
game.
On the Tigers kick-off follow-
ing the score, little Andre Thomag
weaved his way through both
teams as he brought the ball all
the way back to the Tiger 17 yard
line before he was caught by the


last man to be near him. But af-
ter Frdzier bulled up the middle
for nine yards in two plays, the
Sharks were caught for a loss on
a busted play. With fourth and
eight from the 17 yard line, the
Sharks then 'elected to go for a
field goal. Adkison drilled it
through the uprights to go ahead
with the winning points.
FRIDAY NIGHT
Friday night the Sharks will
be on the road to Bonifay for a
8:30 game in the rodeo arena.

IT, 9/15


The Gators scored early and
in each of the first three quarters,
utilizing the talents of David Hys-
mith, who rushed for 76- yards
and quarterback Will Sumner
who threw for one touchdown
and rushed for another. Sumner:
put up 10 passes and connected,
on four of them during the eve-
ning.
The Gators scored first, in the
first period, when David Hysmith
ripped up the middle with a three
yard plunge for the first score of
the game.
The six point lead stood until
a 35-yard scoring pass by Bron-
son and a converted point after,
put the Levy County team in the
lead, momentarily.
Will Sumner then called his
own number and slipped around
the end to tally another TD for
the Gators. Sumner hit Tranum
McLeniore in the end zone with a
short pass to gain the two-point
conversion. This put the Gators
up 14-7 at half time and was
enough to win the game.
The Gators put six more in-
surance points up in the third
quarter when Sumner let loose a
long :distance effort, hitting Dan-
ny Voyles with a 55-yard scoring
pass, to humble Bronson.
Adam Ake continued to stand
out at defense for the Gators with
nine tackles for the evening to
* lead the team. Tranum McLe-
more, working out of his line-
backer slot, added seven tackles
and had an intercepted pass in
the game.'

The Gators had Voyles on the
'receiving end of the big 55-yard
scoring pass, McLemore caught
two for 33 yards, Williams had
one for 17 and Hysmith one for
eight. Hysmith also carried the
ball 17 times, picking up 76
yards and Jeff Jones had 29
yards in 11 carries.

Pain In The Jaw


If you've ever experi-
enced a pain in the jaw, you
know that it can be severe,
almost unbearable, every
time you open and close
your mouth. Pain in the jaw is
sometimes caused by a con-
dition called TMJ syndrome
or temperomandibular joint
dysfunction..When the tem-'
peromandibular joints are
thrown out of balance, this
causes pressure on bone
and muscle that can result in
excruciating pain. These
joints are located on each
side of your head, just in
front of your ear openings,
apd are connected to your
lower jaw bone.
One of the unfortunate
aspects of TMJ syndrome is
that it may also cause re-


ferred pain to other parts of
your body. Headaches, ear-
aches, ringing, buzzing, click-
ing, -popping, and scraping
noises in the ears are some.-'
times symptoms of TMJ syn-
drome. So are stiff or aching
neck or upper back muscles,'
shoulder pains, and other dis-
comfort and pain in the,
upper part of your body.
At the first sign of pain in
the jaw and any other symp-
toms that may be related to
TMJ syndrome, see your den-
tist immediately for treat-
ment.

In addition, the Service is
proposing to allow hunting of
canvasback ducks nationwide for
the first time 'since the 1985-

all four flyways.
Under the second option,
states would be permitted to add
10 extra days to the duck hunt-
ing season, but bag limits would
remain the same as last year-
three ddcks in the Atlantic, Mis-
sissippi, nd Central Flyways,
and four ducks in the Pacific Fly-
way.
This would be the first,time
since 1987 that hunters have
been allowed. four ducks in the
bag or season lengths of 40 days
in the Atlantic and Mississippi
Flyways.
'This year's Improvement in
duck production allows us to of-
fer more opportunities this fall for
hunters who' have- supported
years of restrictive regulations in
times of low populations," said
Fish and Wildlife Service director
Mollie Beattie. "However, if duck
populations next year do not
show signs that the improvement
in continuing, the Fish and Wild-
life Service will look closely at
whether additional harvest re-
strictions are needed."
GOOD YEAR FOR DUCKS
The forecast for mallards, the
most abundant, duck in North
America, is 12 million compared
with 8.8 million last year. Can-
vasback breeding population Indi-
ces increased to 525,000 birds,
up from a low of 373,000 in
- 1985, allowing the season to be
opened up. again'.
Five of the 10 major duck
species remain below their long-
term population average from
1955-93, however, and mallards.
pintails, and scaup" have not yet
reached the population goals es-
tablished for these species under
the North American Waterfowl
Management Plan. Bag limits pro-
posed by the Service impose re-
strictions on the daily take of.
ducks by species and gender in
order to restrict the harvest of
these species.
This is the first good news af-
ter years of poor habitat condi-
tions and generally low popula-
tions. Duck populations fell to'
record lows in the 1980's due to
an extended drought in the pral-
rie nesting areas and continued
loss of wetland and upland habi-
tat across the continent. ,
The fall flight index has been
compiled since the late 1960's.
This year's duck fall flight fore-
cast is the highest since 72 mil-
lion in 1983. The index hit a
record, low-of 55 million ducks in
1985.
FAVORABLE WEATHER
Biologists attribute the popu-
lation increases this year to favor-
able weather combined with the
results of many efforts to restore
and, conserve wetland and upland
habitats through the North Amer-
ican Waterfowl Management Plan,


the. Conservation Reserve Pro-
gram, and projects undertaken by
organizations such as Ducks Un-
limited.
The North 'American Water-
fowl Management Plan, and inter-
national partnership effort, has
protected, restored, or enhanced
more than 2 million acres of wet-
land and upland habitat since
1986.
Additionally, private lands.
enrolled in the Conservation Re-
serve Program have provided mil-
lions of acres of upland habitat
for waterfowl and many other
bird species. This program has
played a major role In restoring
nesting cover, which, was sub-
stantially reduced over the years
due to agriculture.
Geese have generally fared
better than ducks. Most goose
and .swan populations in North
America remained numerically
sound even as duck numbers de-
cl ned. There is concern, however,
about declining Atlantic and
southern James Bay Canada
goose populations. In addition,
number of dusky Canada geese,
though stable, are at half the lev-
els seen in the 1970's.
Goose production was en-
hanced last year by one of the
earliest arctic springs on record.
This year, spring-was delayed,
but the number of geese flying
south in the fall is expected to be
only slightly smaller than last
year.

High School

Fund Raising!
Each. year it seems we. need to raise more and more money to fi-
'nance different activities and projects. The junior class is currently
selling magazines to help finance the Senior Prom, so please, if you
are approached, try to help as much as you can.
A nice crowd turned out to see WHS get a measure of revenge.
by beatirig Bronson 20-7, and now the stage Is set to begin district,
competition Friday night against Greensboro. This is always a
tough game. Remember, it starts at 7:00 p.m. Central, not 7:30, sqo
don't be late. The junior varsity entertains Liberty Co. here Thurs-
day night at 6 p.m. They'll be trying to bounce back from last
week's loss to Apalachicola. so come out and give them your sup-
port. Adults $3. students $2.
Volleyball has started. Home games cost $3 for adults and $2.,
for students. These girls work hard and deserve your support. Find
out when they play and get out to see them. It's always competitive
and entertaining.
Cross country competes this coming Saturday in Tallahassee
against the likes of Lincoln High School and others, so we wish
them well.
Thursday, September 22. ends the first six weeks, and report
cards follow seven days later. Athletes need to be careful to main-
tain their eligibility, but other students need to be concerned as
well. It's too early to begin falling behind. The NHS has volunteer
tutors available every morning before school to assist students who
want help and need help. They set up in the conference room-]
don't think I've seen anyone come for help yet, but It's there if you
need it.
Elections-some are over. some still have to be decided. Please
vote,'when you have the opportunity. Low voter turn-out is a sign of
lack of interest. Remember, even in county and city elections, the
people we elect will help to manage millions of our tax dollars. We
need to aim for the best qualified individuals available. Don't sit
back and fuss if you don't vote!! If you support someone, speak pos-
itively about him/her, rather than negatively about the opponent.
Set a good example for students to follow.
Parents communicate with your students-do you know what
they are doing, where they are going, what they're wearing, watch-
ing, listening to?? Don't turn them loose yet!! Show them you care.

GOP Growth Adds

Spice to State Elections

Party Can Claim 41.6% of State's
Rey tered Voters, Democrats 49.9%
The lost exciting election change of the decade is the growth of the
Republican party registration in Florida to horse-racing status, like 41.6
percent of the total number of voters to the Democrats' 49.9 percent. For
the first time in history, the GOP primaries were where most of the action
was in last week's primary election. Seven sparkling candidates for gov-
errinor shooting it out to run against the Democratic nominee, incumbent
Iawton Chiles.
Most of the action is in central and south Florida, where a majority of
the Republican voters reside, but there is some statewide spin-off. For a
first in modern times, there was a Republican primary in North Florida's
Gulf County, a county commission race no less. Big potatoes in the rural
areas.
Places like Clay County( in North Florida tucked dp under Jackson-
ville are now majority Republican.
There is also a definite possibility that a Republipan has for the first
time an outside chance in the sprawling North Florida fourth Senate dis-
trict, containing 18 counties stretching from Tallahassee east, to the At-
lantic Ocean and south to the Citrus-Hemando county line.
He is George Ornett, of Gainesville, a political unknown in most of
the district, who will be on the November ballot against incumbent Dem-
ocrat Sen. Charles Williams, of Tallahassee. Williams, who has the
biggest campaign fund in the Senate will probably need it for, along the
way, he has angered environmentalists and other liberal Democrats in-
cluding labor and the Jewish community. He sponsored the student-led
school prayer bill, accused Jewish Senators of killing it, then apologized
to them, got a perfect score from business interest and broke with Gov.
Chiles on health care reform.
Such a record usually means re-election in the predominantly rural
Noith Florida counties, but a change from the old one-party Democratic
ways may very well be in the wind. Ornett has enough time to get his po-
sitions out before the Nov. 8 election. He could attract some needed fi-
nancing from the Republican party, which is interested in breaking that
20-20 split with Democrats in the Florida Senate, and he could pick up
some of those Tallahassee-based liberal Democrats who are so upset with
Williams.
Historically,, this is a fascinating' time in Florida. In recent years,
Democrats filled their local offices in Democratic primaries, their voted
their choices in the national election, often switching to Republicans.
Anybody'registered as an Independent or Republican has no one to vote
for locally, except In a few non-partisan offices. Many registered as Dem-'
ocrats out of self defense, then voted non-partisan for the candidates.of
their choice in the general election.
In the days after the war between the states and something called
Reconstruction, Republicans (the party of Lincoln) were practically out-
lawed in the old South. Franklin Roosevelt changed that some following
the depression with his coalition of blacks and poor whites. Migration of
northern residents to Florida did the rest. Now, it appears, Florida is
about to become a real two-party state from city hall to the governor's of-
fice.



News Round-Up
Florida voters who said in polls their biggest concern was govern-
ment waste showed their disdain for incumbents last week by favoring a
Republican frontrunner who has never held public office in the govern-
or's race against Democratic career-politician Lawton Chiles.
Jeb Bush. 41-year old son of former President George Bush. got a
strong 46 percent of the vote in the Republican primary to go into an Oc-
tober 4 runoff with another career politician. Democrat turned Republi-
can Jim Smith. who gave up his Secretary of State post to make the race.
Smith'got, 18 percent in a big field of seven GOP candidates, Includ-
ing Insurance Commissioner Tom Gallagher (13 percent) and former,
State Senate President Ander Crenshaw (12 percent).
Gov. Chiles-whose unknown Democratic candidate Jack Gargan got
28 percent of the vote-was urging on a Bush-Smith 'partisan fight in a
news conference a day after the primary election, praising Smith as a
fighter as well-qualified as he was to be governor. "We share the same
views on tax reform and education." Chiles said.
Chiles said a race between he and Bush would be a ']ihad". a Mos-
lem holy war against infidels. He didn't say who was the infidel.
Asked if it was fair for him to campaign with public money coming to
him under a law he sponsored. Chiles said it was better than Bush using
out-of-state contributions.
"I think the people of Florida should decide." Chiles said.
Bush in a Friday interview said he would not moderate his views of
platform before the general election. '
'This isn't a joke. This is what 1 believe in," said Bush. who has a
reputation'of being more conservative than his father. He wants prison
construction without raising taxes, welfare payment limits, voter approv-
al on all tax increases, and taxpayer vouchers to students to attend the
school of their choice, either public or private.
In another career politician shocker. Florida Education Commission-
er Doug Jamerson barely squeaked through his Democratic primary
against an unknown first-time-out opponent. John Griffin of Ormand
-Beach, a former Navy intelligence officer who spent only $959 actively
campaigning. Jamerson, a veteran lawmaker from Pinellas County ap-
pointed to the Cabinet post by Gov. Lawton Chiles, got only 50.8 percent
of the vote.
Jamerson will face one of two strong Republican candidates in the
general election, either Martin County School Superintendent Frank Bro-
gan or Sarasota businessman Bob Morris, who' are in a GOP runoff in
" October. .
SBoth Brogan and Morris favor a voucher system to allow students to









r and home under

attend schools of their choice, either public or private, which seems to be
one of the defining issues in the cabinet races. Griffin also favored the
proposal.
'Veteran Comptroller Gerald Lewis swept'away his Democratic oppo-
nent, Miami lawniaker Art Simon, with 68 percent of the vote. He will
face retired Marine Corps. Gen. Bob Milligan of Panama City in the gen-
eral election. Milligan got 51 percent of the vote to narrowly defeat St. Pe-
tersburg financial consultant Chris Comstock in the Republican primary.
Former U.S. Rep. Bill Nelson, of Melbourne, won the Democratic
nomination for Insurance commissioner and treasurer over Miami lawyer
Karen Gievers. He will face state Rep. Tim Ireland. of Ft. Myers. who de-
feated insurance executive Slkp Hunter of Pensacola in the Republican
primary.
CASINOS ON BALLOT: It's up to the voters now. The Florida Su-
preme Court ruled late last week that the Proposition for Limited Casinos
was not confusing to voters and did not cover more than one subject.
thus allowing the proposal to be on the November ballot as a constitu-
tional amendment.
Voted down twice in Florida before, the proposal would allow 47
high-stake casinos statewide, including large new ones to be built in nine
of the most populous counties. In addition, casinos will open in each of
30 para-mutuel betting facilities across the state, and five more on river-
boats.
The high court did not rule last week on three proposed tax limiting
amendments or another one that would require government to repay
landowners for loss of property values caused by, government land-use
decisions..
Arguments for those proposals were made at the same time the casi-
nos proposition went before the court.-
SUICIDE CONFIRMED: The Florida Department of Law Enforcement
has ruled the death of Linda Sue Richter a suicide "apparently" partly
caused by sexual harassment by Gulf County Sheriff Al Harrison, who
was suspended without pay by Gov. Lawton Chiles June 8. but who still
has not been charged with a crime.
In a report released by the governor's office, the FDLE said the deci-
sion of Mrs. Richter, an eight-year employee of the sheriffs department,
to end her own life "was apparently the result of emotional trauma con-
nected with what she alleged to be sexual misconduct by Sheriff Al Harri-
son over the years."
Found drowned in a water-filled ditch June 1 north of Port St. Joe,
she had talked with state officials investigating charges that Harrison
forced female jail inmates and staff members to engage In sexual acts. A
suicide note was in her car. A lethal dose of anti-depressants was found
in her stomach.
Harrison has denied ever having a sexual encounter with Mrs. Rich-
ter or female inmates at the jail.
State Attorney Jerry Blair of Live Oak is conducting the investigation,
which is still underway. Earlier, FDLE officials said they may call federal
authorities into the case to Investigate if civil rights laws have been vio-
lated.
