County's

Federal Trial



Says Harrison



Guilty Friday

Placed In Solitary Confinement In
Tallahassee Prison-Immediately
After Verdi.tA t etLg ..L
A federal Jury of eight women and four men found suspended
Gulf County Sheriff Al Harrison "guilty" in seven of the 10 misde-
meanor counts of willfully coercing female Inmates to engage in
sexual acts.
The jury deliberated for six hours before rendering its verdict
on the civil rights charges.
Harrison. who maintained his innocence throughout his in-'
vestigation, continued to declare, as he was being led away In
handcuffs from the federal court room, "I didn't do it. You all
know I didn't do It. Oh, Lord."
PLACED IN FEDERAL CUSTODY
District Judge Lacey Collier ordered Harrison to the custody
of federal marshals until sentencing set by him for March 28th..
The same marshals escorted Harrison from the federal court-
house to the federal corrections facility in Tallahassee where he
was incarcerated.
The former Air Force military police officer, state trooper and
three-term Gulf County Sheriff could be heard sobbing uncon-
trollably outside the courtroom, "Oh Lord, I served my people, I
served my country. I didn't do this, I swear to God, Jesus Christ.
I'm a Christian. I wouldn't do that."
On Thursday Harrison took the stand and denied the accu-
sations lodged against' him bly five former Gulf County jail in-
mates. His attorney, Don Modesitt,. argued Friday that his ac-
cusers were '"a bunch of criminals" bent on revenge for their
arrest and were being helped by tle sheriffs political enemies.
In his closing remarks, Assistant U. S. Attorney Randall
Hensel retorted telling the jury the consistent theme was "the
humiliation and domination of women."
ACCUSERS TELL THEIR STORIES
"He told me if I would do something for him, he would do
something for me," former inmate Robin Johnson testified Tues-
day. Explaining she performed sexual factors in exchange for not
having violation of her parole reported, which would have sent
her back to prison.
Billy Jo Byrd testified that the sheriff failed to deliver on a
promised furlough before she was sent to state prison; Jose-
phine Walker said she was made a trusty, and Ann Vitale testi-
fied she received a furlough-all in exchange for sexual favors
granted to Harrison.
Barbara Grinslade said she did it six times to get cigarettes,
to become a trusty and to get out of jail early. It was on three of
the charges involving Grinslade that Harrison was found not
. guilty.
DEFENSE CORROBORATES CLAIM OF INNOCENCE
The defense presented evidence countering the inmates'
claims. -Harrison's son, Mike Harrison, testified that his father
couldn't have committed one of the acts that he was found guilty
of because he was hunting with him at the time.
Several Gulf County Sheriffs deputies and corrections offi-
cers testified on Harrison's behalf as they and others attested
that the inmates were not trustworthy.
"HOW CAN YOU BELIEVE THESE PEOPLE?"
Modesitt attacked the credibility and character of the five
women named in the indictment and others who testified on be-
half of the prosecution. "How can you believe these people?"
asked Modesitt.
Harrison, 52, testifying on his own behalf broke down in
tears several times, insisting at one point-"I am not attracted to
a young lady: I'm at the age when I'm not like that. I never
touched a female inmate."
Harrison's attorney, Don Modesitt, plans to file an appeal to
the verdict after sentencing takes place on March 28th.

nally planned to lease a grinding
machine in lieu of purchase, btlt
the grinder currently in operation
)here became available for pur-
chase as a used machine. Gulf
County purchased the machine
using the grant funds.
USEFUL FOR THE FUTURE
Danford explained that .the

yard trimmings in the future, sav-
ing valuable landfill space which

Board to Host Open House Monday


For Newly
Gulf County Schools will ful-
fill the dream of an advisory
board for education by having
Open House on Port St. Joe's new
Middle School Monday..


? 'The advisory board suggested
a middle school concept be adopt-
ed- in Gulf County after several
meetings of deliberation, last year.
The school board said the district
didn't need an additional building
and presented plans for convert-
ing one wing of the Port St. Joe
High School into a completely au-
tonomous middle school opera-
tion.
Monday's Open House will
begin at 5:30 p.m. with a general

assembly in the Commons Area
and refreshments will be served
from 6:15 to 6:30 p.m. During the
general assembly several topics
will be discussed for the public's
education. These will include his-,
tory of the school's planning, fu-
ture plans of the facility, commu-
nity concerns prompting the
separation of the middle school
students, and possible formation
of a parent/teacher organization
and, other concerns. It will offer a
Complete tour of the facilities, be-
ginning at 6:30 p.m. for the gen-
eral public to attend.
An election of parents to the
School Advisory Council will be a
feature of the Open House pro-

Chris Earley, principal of the
new Middle School operation,
pointed out that classes have
been separated from the high
school program since the begin-
ning of the current school year.
Both schools use some. of the
same facilities such as the gym-
nasium, lunchroom, etc.,;. but
their activities have been separat-
ed and the students kept apart
from each other.
Construction has' been un-
derway on the new entrance to
acc6modate the middle school
suite ,since last summer with
completion just now accom-
plished.

THE STAR

PAGE TWO THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 2, 1995


Has An Attitude L


JAMES MYRICK'S LETTER to the Editor in last week's Star
was correct on two points and way off base on a couple of other
points. We're answering the letter, with no disrespect to Myrick
and without a request to do so, or the permission of the land-
owner in question, St. Joe Paper Company. SJPC would proba-
'bly rather let the matter be, but we think it needs some discus-
sion.
In the first place, hunting areas are disappearing throughout
Florida. Art Runnels, PIO for the Game Department, back when
the department was trying to help hunters, rather than regulate
them to death, told the Rotary Club two things hunters in this
area need to expect. One-hunting areas in the state were either
being'bought up by hunting clubs or were disappearing in new
subdivisions. He said-as long as 25 years ago-that Gulf
County hunters had some of the last wild lands left in Florida to
hunt on. Two-The grass and food sources in this area were
plentiful, but didn't contain enough nutrients to grow off a tro-
phy animal.
St. Joe Paper Company is not responsible for loVw nutrients
in the deer forage .
MYRICK IS CORRECT. The land belongs to St. Joe Paper
Company. The property he refers to, has belonged to them since
'1940 that we know of, and longer than that, we suspect. It's
theirs' and they have the right to do with it as best benefits their
needs. If it were yours, you would use it to your best benefit.
They are under no obligation to allow you, or anrjone else to
hunt on their property! Actually, to do so creates an extra source
of liability for them, which they could probably get along better
not having to contend with.
When the game reserve was first created. many years ago, a
hunting club. made up of local people, plowed, planted and
maintained food plots for the deer. Like most things, the people
lost interest in the project, as the older members quit hunting.
died or moved away. If we were a deer hunter, we would not ex-
pect any St. Joe Paper Company to maintain a place to hunt for
our enjoyment, work it, protect it and pay taxes onri it.
LETTERS SUCH AS MR. Myrick wrote could do much to dis-
courage SJPC and other huge landowners throughout Florida
from opening their vast acreage to hunters and fishermen. You
could close all hunting areas to the general public, with an atti-
tude such as has been displayed, if you're not careful.



Made Us Proud
ANOTHER LETTER IN last week's paper had to do.with a
group of our kids who are truly a "class act". Written by Traci
Gaddis, it expressed what everyone of us here in Port St. Joe
should be dwelling on and congratulating the young men for. In-
stead, we dwell on the minority of kids who are getting into trou-
ble, causing all of us problems and they always will.
If you attended at least a portion of the basketball tourna-
ment in Marianna two week ends back. you had the opportunity
to witness the behavior and the team concept of young men. and
their coaches, from all over the state.
There was as much difference as night and day!
WE WERE SITTING immediately behind a team from a large
metropolitan area of our state-one of several teams there-and
each time the team would take a time-out and come to the side-
lines, there would be arguing, cursing, shouting, between the
coaches and the team and among the team. members them-
selves. Pandemonium reigned!
NWe remarked at the situation, at the time and a fan from one
of the metropolitan areas remarked, "That's how you have to talk
to kids in --- if you hope to get their attention!"
IN THE MEANWHILE our Coach Eppinette was calmly
standing on the sideline, quietly guiding his team with signs and
gestures, while the other coaches were ranting and raving
throughout all the games. Some were even ejected from the gym-
nasium. for their antics.
Our young men resisted numerous opportunities to get into
tussles on the playing., floor. and earned several technical foul
shot opportunities due to conduct by the other teams. Port St.
Joe can be proud to have a team. made up of the young men,
represent them. showing up to play the game while leaving the
extra-curricular behavior to the less civilized teams.
Port St. Joe's team played clean and hard and as a result,
they had the following and the support of most of the 1,500 or
so fans which were present on both days. They may have been
out-classed in size, but they were not ""out classed" in decorum
or ability.
It was a pleasure to be able to say, "I'm from Port St. Joe,"
and not be ashamed to admit it.

Good Lasagna Dogs Are Hard To Find


I

a


This hasn't been the best dog
year I've ever had. Dolly ran off
and joined the circus. She al-
lowed that after living with us for
a few years there wasn't nothing
to jumping through those fiery
hoops and swinging around on a
,trapeze.
Dwight came bouncing out of
the woods one fine morning
a'here while back and for no good
reason at all decided to tackle a
pick up truck.
Folks, for the first time in re-
cent memory, I find myself out of
the dog business. Dolly and
Dwight might not have been blue
chip, all around, grand-nite
champions-but they were all
that we hadl
Dolly would tree a coon. Well.,
she did until she took to watching
too much television. She was al-
ways drawn to the glamour and
the night life ..... Dwight would


run around in the woods and
bark like a house a'fire. But he
wouldn't actually be barking at
anything. He just prided himself
on making the racket. I'll tell you
what he was best at-eating! he
wasn't hard to find at dinner
time. And lasagna was his favor-
ite. Cathy took to cooking extra
large portions of that stuT ..
"Motherl Why have you RIxed
up two gigantic pans-there are
only three of us nowl"
"Well, son. if there happens
to be any left Dwight might clean
up the . .
As she's saying this, one of
the pans mysteriously finds its
way to the floor. Dwight would
finish off the leftovers before we
got down to the Amen.
Cathy knows no bounds
when she finds a body that will
actually eat her cooking.
I pondered on getting another
dog. We've had a hunting dog of
some kind around for as long as I
can remember. Cathy and I decid-
ed we'd let It rest for a while.
We're both kind'a busy and we
couldn't replace Dolly anyway
and Cathy, of course, had a spe-
cial attachment to Dwight-non-
hunting, lasagna eating, bark at


anything except racoons dogs are
hard to come by--
"Daddy, could I get a dogl
"Jess. are you serious!'
'Sure. you've had dogs. Ya II
got a dog for Josh. I really want
one.
Now, Jesse doesn't exactly
beat to the same drummer as the
rest of us-youve got.to be cau-
tious. "What kind of dog are we'
talking about here, son?"
"I wouldn't mind a Dalma-
tian. They're neat. But any dog
will do. It doesn't matter if it's big
or little, lots of hair or no hair,
brown or black or white, long
ears or-" :
'Whoa, whoa, hold it a min-
utel We don't want a nothing
dog."
I can't believe sometimes how
much I sound like my Father.
Forty years ago Leon. David
and I stood before Dad with a lit-
tie, furry. brownish-red dog of
highly questionable pedigree.
"Can we keep him?'
S Please?"
"Pretty please?"
"Boys. he's a nothing dog! He
won t hunt. He can't contribute to
the family. Look at old Duke. He
trees coons at night, squirrels in


the day time and he'll bring home-
rabbits all by himself. We don't
need a nothing dog. What we
need is two or three more like old
Dukel'
We understood Dad's logic.
Although in all honesty I must in-
sert here that I remember Duke
as a great coon dog and a fair
roster of squirrels. Dad greatly
exaggerated that dogs rabbit
hunting ability. We, of course,
didn't care one whit about logic.
"We've already named him
Trixie."
'Can we keep him?",
"Please?
'Trixie-that ain't no name
for a real dog. Tell you what, you
call him Bowser and I'll think
abput it."
I turned my attention back to
Jesse and the dog hunt at hand,
but I couldn't shake those fond
memories of TrLxje. No. he never
chased a coon or spotted up a
squirrel but he did bring home
just as many rabbits as old Duke.
And what a companion! He'd go
swimming with us. play ball, nde
behind us on the tractor and he
never failed to help Roy. Hoppy

TheLongest(and Tardiest) Card of Thanks We've Ever Run


IT JUST OCCURRED to me
'that it has been three months.
now, since I had a bout with a,
stroke [the doctors called it a
T.I.A.], and I haven't published a
"Card of Thanks" for the many
acts of kindness and expressions
of concern I received and am still
receiving.
I didn't know that many peo-
ple knew about my health, or
.even cared
I sort of feel the' stores in
'town which sell "get well" cards
wish I would never get over thils
thing, or at least have another'
one or two. They must have made
a mint of money, selling those
cards you sent to me during the
past three months. 1 thought
there for a while I was going to
corner the market of "get well"
cards. I received serious ones,
poetic ones, comic ones, hand-
made ones, fancy ones, and even
a few which merely were notes
which said they hoped I would get
well soon.


7 ETAOIN SHRDLU
-. -BW .ey
By Wesley Ramsey
df7


WITH ALL THIS attention I
was receiving, there was a very'
real temptation to sort of "ride"
:the situation so I would continue
to get the concerned solicitation
about, "how do you' feel", "are you
getting better", "is there anything
I can do for you", "is there any
way I can help you", etc.
You folks nearly killed me
with your kindness and concern.
The whole complexion of
feed-back I get here at the office
has' changed. Now, instead of
someone calling on Thursday
morning with a, 'You blanket-y-
blank so-and-so, why did you


prir.t that in your paper," or, "I
read your editorial this week and
I just wanted you to know how
stupid you are for even consider-
Ing a position such as you took
on that matter. It should have
been sensible, like mine!"
That's usually the kind of re'
action I receive and I have to
shrug it off, with a "well, that s
part of the price one has to pay,;
to have this job."
I have found out, however,
that you don't really hate me; you
just put up with my ideas when
they seem to be so crazy or .far
out. [That's 'French' for any idea


or position which is different from,'
the one you have.]

MY PERIOD OF "grace", to ,
recover from my problem is ap-
parently over, though. I have to
get up and get myself a glass of
water, now. I get nmy turn to wait
for a seat at the dinner table,
here at The Star rather than hav-
ing someone jump up and give
me a seat. The other day I had
someone growl at me and say,
"Why don't you get up out of that
chair and go to ov.rk? '
The respect period here at the..
office is over. But you are still ex--
pressing your concern and asking
me, every time you see me, just
how I am progressing.
Then there are those who
have always felt there was some-
what of a handicap there. For a
long time I would hear those "ath-
letes" I came in contact with, talk
about their 'handicap' in refer-
ence to their golf game. I always.


'Ifelt that if they were able to play
golf, they didn't have a, 'handicap'
until I saw a couple of them play
one day. They had a handicapp'

SERIOUSLY, THOUGH. I,
have been remiss at acknowledg-
ing it for too long a tmne. but I
really do appreciate your concern
and especially your prayers.
J1 don't'lknow why I have wait-
ed so long to tell you of my appre-
ciation. It doesn't cost me any-
thing to say I appreciated it.
Actually, it helps me because I
get a -column subject out of it.
And the awe which Kesley has
held with my good fortune of be-
ing able to come up with a sub-
ject every week for these 43 years
isn't a bunch of a bull. It has
made for several times of wrench-
ing agony over the years. Some
weeks the column subject just
begs to be written. Other weeks, I
just beg for something to fill in
these six columns by 23. picas.


AS LONG AS I have been at
the helm of The Star,, I have made
it a policy of printing "Cards of
Thaliks" -at no charge .for those
who feel they have a need for this
type of expression of their appre-
ciation.
My thoughts are that after a
person or family has experienced
the expense of an illness, injury
or death and the extreme person-
al trauma which attends such
conditions, the last thing they
need is a bill for five or ten bucks
'for a little expression of their ap-
preciation in the local newspaper.
Now,. I find myself in need of
just such a means of expression
and I am just getting around to it.
Don't you nice folks ever get
tired of caring for people like me
who just never get around to ex-
pressing their appreciation. It's
just another .'plus' for living in a
small town where you know eve-
rybody and everybody knows-
and cares for-youl

A Redneck Test
Have you ever wondered if you are a Redneck? If you have any
doubt, take the following test. If you answer yes to five of the ques-
tions, you have a Redneck background and could possibly be one. If
you answer yes to ten of the following, you and one of your children
are Rednecks.
If you answer yes to 15 or more, you, your spouse and all of
your children are Rednecks and there's a good possibility that half
of your grandchildren will be Rednecks.
If you answer yes to all of the questions, you need to sell your
used pickup, buy a horse and wagon and move to the deep woods
of Mississippi. There ain't no hope for you in this modem-day
world
DO YOU OR HAVE YOU EVER:
Killed and butchered a hog on a cold,-fall day?
Eaten a bowl of chitterlings the day after you killed the hog(s)?
Milked a cow morning and night for over 6 months?
Bought a used pickup for a family car?
Gone on a hay ride and held hands with your first cpusin because
there were no other boys or'girls around?
Planted flowers in an old tire and painted the top of the tire white
for a front yard decoration?
Chewed tobacco, took a dip of snuff, smoked a cigarette and
drank a beer at the same time?
Licked your plate after you finished eating?
Drank moonshinelmore than one time in your life?
Eaten bacon or sausage for breakfast more than three times a
week?
Remember when.a "two-seater" out-house was a modem conven-
ience?
Have never been and have no interest in going to New York City or,
California?
Ploughed a mule all day long in the blistering simun?
Wet the bed because It was too cold to get up and go to the outt-
house? -
Burned the back of your legs trying to warm by a roaring fire in a
fireplace?
Remember when there were no television set and wish those days
were back again?
Eaten a meal cooked on a wood-burning stove?
Stepped in a pile of fresh cow manure when you had no shoes on
and didn't wash your feet before putting your shoes and socks on?
Thought that Nashville, Tennessee was the capitol of the United
States?
Finally, have you ever thought that, given another chance, the
South win the Civil War?
If you answered yes to all 20 questions, make room for me on
that wagon. We'll make us a sling-shot and play some "root-the-
peg" when we get to Mississippi!

There are few people in this world that will ever be able to tell;
How our Lord Jesus felt as they hammered in the final nail.
For months I felt the burden of the cross;
Accused of things I didn't do, my honor, pride and dignity lost.
Oh Lord, my God, I prayed for weeks as the tears fell;
Long before I felt the horror of the final nail.
As they searched the land far and near;
Truth and honesty wasn't what they wanted to hear. ,
"Lies, tricks, anything" was the yell;
"We have got to put this man in jail."
These things were all prepared to hammer in the final nail.
The Romans sat back with an evil smile;
"You be prepared, you are going to trial."
Without money, I was so proud of my children, my lawyer, and
' friends as they prepared;
Motion after motion, my lawyer was denied.;
Inside my heart began to cry, then it begatntoyell;
"Give us a chance, please give us a chance. You know you have
the final nail".
Fresh from the beauty shop, their scripts were sojearned and
S cold; .' .*" ..
Lie 'after lie their witnesses told.
Where were you February 1992 or December 2, 1989;
Hurry, hurry, we are out of time.
In God's jury I know it will show- Not Guilty, Not Guilty.
Never, ever would I think with my Lord Jesus I compare;
This is the only way to shou. the injustices with Him I share.
The horrible sound of the door closing to the cell;
I know and have felt the pain and hurt of the final nail.

Dear Editor: .
Several days ago in our jou

"Avoid sensationalism, and stl
away from racy material. Sex an

extreme caution in reporting an

Growing A 'Mini-Garden" Can be both Enjoyable and Rewarding


Vegetable gardening is more
popular today than ever before.
We usually discuss this subject
as the backyard garden. However,
that isn't always fair to the grow-
ing number of Floridians who live
in mobile home parks, apart-
ments, and condominiums, where
there's little or no backyard to be
had.
Just because you don't have
a big yard with lots of room,
doesn't mean you can't grow veg-
etables. In fact, you can enjoy
working with a strawberry barrel
or a half-dozen tomato plants as
much as any backyard garden.
My information about mini-
gardens was provided by Exten-
sion Vegetable Specialist, Jim
Stephens.
ableIn addition to being an enjoy-
able activity, mini-gardening is
both practical and ornamental..
Most containers will fit almost
anywhere In the landscape,, on
patios, porches and balconies,
even rooftops.
Depending on the type of veg-'
etables you plan to grow, there's
practically no limit to the kinds of

TIME-OUT
Although you can'tt ignore dangerous or destructive behavior,
you can call a time-out. This technique is most successful with
three- and four-year olds. who generally know when they've done
something seriously wrong and understand that this is why they're
being punished. .
Here's how the time-out works:
I. Define the behavior you want to stop, and keep track of how
frequently it occurs. Punishment of any kind should be used
only when your child is intentionally doing something he knows
is forbidden.
2. Warn hinT that if he continues to do this, he'll be punished.
3. Identify at time-out area. preferably a room that's empty of toys,
television or other attractions-in other words, one that's as
boring as possible for the child. If such a room isn't available.
use a chair facing the wall in a hall or unoccupied room.
4. When the child does something he knows will result in time-out.
send him immediately to the area you have selected and tell him
how long he has to stay there. Five minutes is usually sufficient.
Place a timer or a clock within view so he can keep track of the
time.
5. If he cries or screams, reset the timer for another five minutes. If
he leaves the time-out area, return him there and reset the
timer.
6. Use a timer each and every time he violates this particular rule.
Also, any time you notice that he's observing the rule,
congratulate him for behaving so well.


cans, barrels, drums, and even
plastic bags. Just be sure the
container you choose will. keep
the soil in and let excess water
drain out.
Once you've selected a con-
tainer and have decided what to
grow, its time to think about a
growing medium. Of course you
can plant in either ordinary gar-
den soil, or prepared soil mix. A
good growth medium can be
made of one bushel of vermiculite
(ver-MIK-you-LITE). A bushel of
moss, one and a quarter cups of,
dolomite (DOLE-ah-mite), and a
cup of 6-8-8 fertilizer with trace,
elements-all mixed thoroughly.
You could also use a bushel of
sand or_garden soil mixed with a

has a fire inspector? Did you
know that. the city has had such
an officer since 1988? A program
given the Rotary Club last Thurs-
day revealed that we have an ac-
tive fire inspector and that Al Ray
wears that cap in addition to his
duties as city safety inspector
and purchasing agent.
Ray wasn't just named the in-
spector in order to comply with
some federal or state mandate, al-
though he was given the job to
satisfy a mandate, Ray went to
class at Chipola Junior College
and took a course to train fire in-
spectors, for eight hours a day
and for a period of eight weeks-
255 college hours of study. In ad-
dition, he takes 40 hours of train-
ing every year.
The fire Inspector must take
a qualifying exam and be certified
for his job.
Ray says his duties include
the approval of plans for every
new home or building inside the
city. He also inspects every build-
ing used to serve the general pub-
lic on a regular basis. He inspects
such items as electrical wiring.

you plant in one of the light sub-

wood shavings, it'll be easier to
move the container, If necessary.
In any case, fertilizing a mini-

Using such media, you need to
water and fertilize often. Normal-
ly, drench the container with a
nutrient solution once or twice a
day-as many as five times a day if
it's especially hot and dry.
The soil mixes we mentioned
earlier have plenty of organic
matter and some fertilizer, and
usually retain moisture well. So,
they don't need such frequent wa-,
tering and fertilization. You can
maintain a normal garden water-
ing schedule, and add fertilizer

' Move On To Abolish


The State Cabinet

With Its Republican Membership
This old reporter has mixed emotions about dismantling Florida's
unique 110-year-old Cabinet that was formed by Democrats after the
Civil War to water down strong governors. It's ironic, maybe even hypo-
critical, that we're now considering doing away with it just as Republi-
cans are on the verge of taking it over. No matter.
Perhaps the strongest reason for retaining the system was given at
the organizational meeting this week by Charles Lee, spokesman for the
Florida Audubon Society, that it gives access to entrenched powerful gov-
ernment often not available anywhere else.
I usually disagree with environmentalists like Lee, but I can recall
several issues important to the people of Florida that were either killed or
kept alive by cabinett members against the wishes of the governor of the
time. 7
Most governors of both political parties take dim views of sharing
their power. Republican Claude Kirk-the bull in the china closet I en-
joyed covering from the sub-basement of the old capitol---didn't want to
and often didn't schedule Cabinet meetings because he was the only Re-
publican on it.
I suspect Gov. Lawton Chiles who is trying hard not to be a lame
duck in his last four years would like to do away with some of those dis-
senting voices he has to listen to at least once a month, but he is too
good of a politician to commit himself.
"I've got my chair, that's all I worry about," Chiles said in his he-coon
double-speak reaction to the silly power-sitting play the Cabinet engaged
in this week on who was to sit next to the governor.
Agriculture Commissioner Bob Crawford won the power play, of
course, by sending his aide down to sit in the chair next to the governor's
for an hour before the meeting.
"Boys will be boys," fumed Republican Secretary of State Sandra
Mortham whose'predecessor Jim Smith sat next to the governor. "I would
just hope we can move on and solve the people's problems."
Ralph Turlington, former Democrat Representative from Gainesville
and Education Commissioner, made an Impressive plea for not forming a
Citizens Review Commission to look at the Cabinet, but like most sugges-
tions from us old guys, it was turned down by all members in a unani-
mous vote. Turlington said the combined knowledge and responsibility of
cabinet.members made a difference in the quality of decisions made dur-
ing his years as a member.
Philosophically, this old reporter has to agree with the sitting cabinet
members because any move to limit the power and expense of too much
government-no matter how shallow the motives-must be applauded.
I have a sentimental attachment to this cabinet. After all, 'me and
Uncle Clem Redneck over on Flat Creek in Gadsden County, and Aunt
Minnie Tenishoe down in St. Petersburg recommended six of the seven
(Chiles didn't make our list).
Democrat Attorney Gen. Bob Butterworth, who is proposing the
changes, is right when he compares it to a big county commission which
I have always thought is a good way to get back to the grassroots.
Gen. Bob Milligan, the new Republican comptroller, is perhaps the
closest to the grassroots. He said he didn't care where he sat, that the
view was good out on the "right wing." When asked whether he should be
called general or comptroller, he said "It don't matter, just so you smile
when you say it."
It must be said here too that Gov. Chiles seems to have correctly as-
sessed the mood of the people in preparing his reality budget for the'
coming year which would increase by less than three percent with no
new taxes.
He seems to have-accepted the different-way of thinking about gov-
ernment caught in the Government Performance- and Accountability
Act-passed by the Legislature last year-that requires agencies to devel-
op performance-based budgets over the next six years.
Rather than taking all you can milk out of taxpayers each year and
spending it on what is most popular and best lobbied. It requires govern-
ment to show a need for any new taxes and deliver services in a cost-
effective way.
That, my friends, is revolutionary thinking inside the Taxahassee
beltway.
Chiles' budget does not pit colleges vs. prisons, as the liberals are
claiming. The amount spent on each prisoner bears no relation to the
money spent to educate a child.,
Coupling that with Chiles' proposals to spend more money on eco-
nomic development efforts by expanding the role of Enterprise Florida
and downsiz-e the Commerce Department, you might very well conclude
that maybe Florida voters did the right think by re-electing the career
Democrat politician. The trouble with that thinking, of course, is: why
didn't Chiles and the other Democrats here in Florida and nationally, un-
dertake some of these obviously needed reforms during all those years
when they were in control and had the votes to do it?

ROUND-UP
by Jack Harper



Capital News Round-Up
TALLAHASSEE (WNS)-The 25 percent cuts requested by the Florida
Senate doesn't mean slashes in needed social programs, says key Senate
committee chairman William (Doc) Myers, R-Hobe Sound. Instead, it is
an attempt to identify potential areas of savings.
Myers, chairman of the panel that oversees the vast Department of
Health and Rehabilitative Services, said funding for needy families,
abused children and babies with birth defects would remain Intact. He
criticized HRS Sec. Jim Towey's response that proposed cuts would turn
Florida into a Third World nation, saying 't would hurt his chances to be
confirmed by the Senate. Another threat to Towey's appointment to the
post by Chiles which has to be confirmed by the Republican Senate is
Miami attorney Karen Gievers federal lawsuit that puts much of the
blame for Florida's failing foster-care system on HRS. She reinstated the
class-action suit after, she said, it was clear that Towey and HRS. didn't
intend to meet deadlines in correcting some of the problems.
Corrections Secretary. Hariy Singletary is also expected to face heavy
opposition in confirmation hearings augmented by the still at-large con-
victed killer Juan Fleitas and five other prisoners were able to: dig a 45-
foot long tunnel from beneath the prison chapel to just outside the razor-
wire fence. Fleitas, believed to be the leader, is the only escapee still at
large.
SHERIFF FOUND GUILTY: Gulf County Sheriff Al Harrison was
found guilty of coercing oral sex from women prisoners In his jail for pref-
erential treatment. He was convicted under civil rights laws by a federal
grand jury after an investigation by the Florida Department of Law En-
forcement and a suspension by Gov. La\vton Chiles. :
Semen found on a chair and carpet in his office figured in the evi-
dence. Harrison broke down and wept on the stand, claiming, "I have
never touched a female inmate." His wife, son and two daughters also'
wept after the verdict was returned.
BLACKS FEAR PLAN: Fearing minority-businesses would lose some
state contracts, black lawmakers were assured last week it wouldn't hap-
pen in a plan to abolish the Department of Commerce and shift its work;
to a private-public partnership known as Enterprise Florida. m
LL Gov. Buddy MacKay told black legislators at a committee meeting
that Florida is a small-business state and minority-owned businesses
would not lose out in the privatizing of development programs proposed
by Gov. Lawton Chiles. Chiles did not include the Commerce Department
in his budget proposals.
Rep. Al Lawson, D-Tallahassee, and other black legislators said they
suspected Enterprise Florida-based 'in Orlando, would boost big'busi-
nesses in Florida, but leave the small minority-owned businesses out of
the mainstream.
Chiles' plan now calls for transferring the black board and advocacy
commission to the Department of Comnmunity Affairs, but MacKay said
that decision is negotiable. "'The Black Business Investment Board would
logically fit right into the Capital Partnership, one of Enterprise Florida's
development funds." MacKay said.
Enterprise Florida would take over industrial recruitment and pro-
motion of Florida under Chiles' plan. Tourist promotion would be turned
over to the Florida Tourist Commission.
SENTENCE UPHELD: The Tallahassee juvenile whose vicious beat-
ing of an art teacher at the end of school last year helped prompt a state-
wide "zero tolerance" policy for Florida's schools got his three-year prison
sentence upheld last week.
Circuit Judge Nikki Clark turned down an attempt by lawyers td ap-,
peal the sentence she handed down in November to require the 15-year-
old to serve three years in a youthful offender prison.
Judith Birtman, 51, the former elementary school art teacher who
was beaten, testified at the appeal hearing that she wanted the youth to
serve his sentence and that she fears the day he gets out of prison.
The change in statewide school policy prompted by the incident was
that police will notify school principals who in turn will inform teachers if
they have a student in their class who has committed off-campus crimes.
The youth who attacked the teacher while some of his classmates
yelled him on had a long juvenile record, but the teacher didn't know it.,
AHI! SWEET PENSIONS! Former Rep. Sam Mitchell, D-Vernon. has
already been hired temporarily on a $50,000-a-year state job that will
nearly triple his second state pension.
Mitchell, 65, retired from the Florida House last year with 30 years of
service. On January 13 this year, his political ally and friend, Labor Sec-,
retary Doug Jamerson hired him into the department as North Florida
coordinator for a placement network that finds jobs for out-of-work pro-
fessionals. p a a .
If he keeps his job placement position as a permanent state employee'

job, $16,062 he began receiving in 1983 from 30 years as a teacher, prin-
cipal and coach in Washington County.
Mitchell said his endorsement for Jamerson in his unsuccessful race
for Florida School Commissioner had nothing to do with him getting the

"He must think I am a qualified person for the job." Mitchell said. "I
am."
TOURIST KILLING: A guilty plea by a teenager charged as one of the
gunmen who killed British tourist Garry Colley at an 1-10 rest stop near
Tallahassee 16 months ago may end the case finally.
Aundra Akins, 16, on Monday became the third teen to plead to re-
duced charges and promise to testify, following the examples of Deron
Spear, 17, and Cedric Green. 13. '
Only John (Billy Joe) Crumitie still could face the electric chair in a
retrial. He got off with a hung jury last time.
With Akins' guilty plea and promise to testify the final act in the con-
fusing tragedy that brought North Florida worldwide attention seems at
'hand.
The state-as it should have-stepped in with a grant to help small
Jefferson County pay for the expense of the high profile trials.

curtailing night hunting activity,
but it does Help. -
"It is also important to realize
that the individuals involved in
this type of activity are not
sportsmen and that they repre-
sent a very small minority of the
hunting public. The legitimate
sportsmen have been very sup-
portive of the program."

Hoover said much of the in-
formation the G.F.C. uses to tar-
get specific areas or individuals
comes from sportsmen concerned
about the effect night hunting
can have on their deer population
and the image of their sport.
'There's little doubt as word
spreads about the use of the rep-
lica deer that they'll serve anot
only as an important method of
apprehending night hunters but
also as a deterrent to illegal night
hunting activity," he said. "We're
getting lots of reports already
about people seeing the replica
deer in places where we're not us-
ing them."


Wildlife officers of the Florida
Game and Fresh Water Fish Com-
mission have 'added a potent
weapon to their arsenal of tools
for arresting poachers who hunt
deer at night. They're now using.
neoprene, look-alike deer stand-
ins with an amazing degree of
success.
Although specific records are
not available from throughout the
state, wildlife officers have made
dozens of arrests for attempting
to kill'deer at night since they be-
gan using the, replicas in 1992.
Many of those arrests involved
suspects shooting the replica
from highways and dirt roads.
Bureau Chief Paul Hoover, 'in
the G.F.C.'s Division of Law En-
forcerfient, said roughly 20 repli-
ca deer are used throughout the
state. The replicas are usually set
up where they're not readily visi-
ble to the motoring public but
can be seen by someone shining
a spotlight or intentionally using
a vehicle's headlights to look for
deer to kill illegally. He said two-
to-four officers typically work the
replica and quickly arrest anyone
who fires at it.
"Some of the replica deer
have been shot so many times
we've had to replace some of their
parts," Hoover said.
Before wildlife officers use the
replicas in any of the state's judi-
cial circuits, they make sure
state's attorneys and judges are.
in agreement with their use. "If
there are objections, we don't use
them," he said.
The largest number of arrests
in one day using the replica deer
occurred on January 18, 1992-in
Wakulla County. There, off High-
way 375, Wildlife officers arrested
seven individuals in three differ-
ent vehicles for shooting the repli-
ca between three and six a:m.'
Hoover said one of the most
unusual cases thus far involving
the replica deer took ,place in
south Washington County. Wild-
life officers had stationed the rep-:
lica in a pine. forest roughly 75
yards off a dirt road, when it was
spied by a local man in his pick-
up truck. After staring at the
"deer" frozen in the headlights for
a few seconds the man floor-
boarded the truck straight for his
target.
"Fortunately the replica was
located behind a large pine tree
and this guy slammed on brakes
at the last second; jumped outt '
and tackled the decoys The two
officers working on the detail
were laughing so hard they could

teers used puppets to provide a*
feeling of "being there" in the sto-
ry.

jects.
Parents-this is an excellent
opportunity to provide a much
needed support for your student
by becoming interested in their

The FREE concert will be held on
February 28 at 7:30 p.m. at the
Marina Civic Center in Panama
City. You might want to pick up
your tickets as soon as possible

sell-out crowd. The number is
(904) 763-4696. If you wait until

might still get a free ticket. For a
fabulous night of music enter-
tainment, let's all go and especial-'

come out and support this antici-
pated event. These have been de-
lighting audiences since 1973
with different sponsors. First it
was the Jayceettes, then the
American Cancer Society, and
now the Senior Citizens.
Kaleb's Burn
Lori Price's little 3-year-old
boy, Kaleb, had a terrible experi-
ence last week. Without realizing


that a crock pot was hot, he
plunged his whole" hand into
scalding pot roast and juices.
Quick as a flash, she called her
neighbor, Doris Jean Whitten and
they rushed him to Wewa Medical
Center where Doris Jean's sister,
Ann Morris met them and admin-
istered treatment. He received
both first and second degree
burns; but is recovering nicely.
Teacher
It has often been called the
most creative job in the world. It
involves tact, diplomacy, humor,
recreation, discipline, energy,
counseling, stamina, patience,
handwriting expertise, psycholo-
gy, and more. Anyone who can
handle all this is someone very
special.
Fourth Grader, Kelli Jackson's
Cousin Tq Be In
Miss U.S.A. Pageant
Kelli Jackson is really proud
of her cousin, Stephanie Fowler,
who lives in Pennsylvania. Steph-'
anie will be in the Miss U.S.A. Pa-
geant on national television on
February 10. If you spot her on
stage, see if Kelli looks like her.

.By: Jacque Quarles
Faith Christian welcomes sev-
eral new students this semester.
They are Hamp Livingston, Quen-
Un Jenkins, Bennie Tiller and
Joshua Langan.
This week has been "maga-
zine sales" week and next Friday
will be the beginning of the candy
sales. Our students enjoy selling
Hershey's 'candy products, ;and
we all gain a pound or two each
year in February.
February is also the month
for in-school spelling bees to get
ready for the Gulf County and the
ACSI Bees which are held in
March. Two super spellers from
each grade, one through eight,
journey to Pensacola to be a -part
of the regional spelling bee put on
by. the Association, of Christian
Schools International. The school
champion from grades 5-8 repre-
sents Faith Christian at the Gulf
County Spelling Bee.
Spelling is an important sub-
ject at Faith Christian. The words
are coordinated with the phonics'


program in\ grades one through
three, vocabulary is added in
grades four through eight, and
the emphasis in high school is on
vocabulary and usage. Each stu-
dent purchases a school diction-
ary in grade three, and dictionary
and library skills are included in
the language arts curriculum.
Students are encouraged to use
the local library for research pro-
jects. Each student in grades five
through eight participates in the
DAR essay contest, and research
papers are an integral part of the
high school English program. The
purpose is to prepare students for
.writing papers in college as well
as teaching them to do concen-
trated research Into topics of in-
terest in history: and literature.
We want to give our readers
an update on our building
progress. The interior doors are
being put into place, and the car-
pet has been ordered. There is
still some clean up and painting
'to be done, so a work day is
planned for February 11.
