State Auditor Criticizes

Sheriff's Record Keeping

Florida Auditor General
Ernest Ellison recently con-
ducted a routine audit of the
office of Sheriff Raymond
Lawrence for his first three
years in office and scored the
Sheriff on several points of
record keeping practices of
the office. Most of the criti-
'cisms of Ellison were for the
first two years in office for
Lawrence and were answered
as mostly due to a mis-under-
standing of the proper way to
keep the required records.
Ellison's report stated the
Sheriff's office showed no
glaring deficiencies but had

$1,947.00 in the first year's
budget with the merchandise

Lawrence defended the action
by replying that the purchase
was for specialized radio
equipment required of the
department which was delay-
ed in installation. The equip-
ment was ordered and paid for
in fiscal 1973-74 and delivered
in Decemer, 1974, three
months into the following fis-
cal year.

The Sheriff was criticised
for paying his wife $341.40 for

had reimbursed the county for

use of the car by saying he felt
he should'have adequate and
immediate transportation
should he be called back to
duty by an emergency.
Lawrence was also written
up for providing, at Depart-
ment expense, insurance cov-
erage for members of the
Sheriff's Auxiliary. Ellison
said there was no precedent in
Florida law to cover this
expenditure. '
Lawrence stated the Auxili-
ary members served without
pay, facing danger, in their
duties, and he felt the least the
Department could do was to
adequately insure them
against injury.
Ellison found that, due to a
bookeeping error, Sheriff
Lawrence was overpaid $31.03
in fiscal 1973, which has since
been repaid the county.

Corps Recommends Maintenance Work for Harbor

The U. S. Army Corps of Engineers at
Mobile announced that a final environmental
statement and Statement of Findings recom-
mending continued operation and mainte-
nance dredging of the existing navigation
channels in Port St. Joe Harbor, have been
filed with the President's Council on Environ-
mental Quality (CEQ).

The Channel consists of (a) an entrance
channel 37 feet deep, 500 feet wide at its outer
bend and diminishing progressively in width

to 400 feet at the first bend, a distance of 3.6
miles, thence continuing at a depth of 37 feet
and a width of 400 feet through the second to
the third bend, a distance of 3.3 miles, thence
continuing at a depth of 35 feet and a width of
300 feet a distance of 2.4 miles to a point in St.
Joseph Bay where the entrance channel joins
the North Channel, a total overall distance of
9.3 miles; (b) the North Channel 35 feet deep,
300 feet wide, from the point where the North
Channel joins the entrance channel to the
north end of the turning basin at Port St. Joe,

a distance of about 4.7 miles; (c) a turning
basin 32 feet deep, 1,000 feet wide, and 2,000
feet long, with a harbor therein 35 feet deep,
250 feet wide, arsd 2,000 feet long, adjacent to
the waterfront at Port St. Joe; and (d) the
South Channel 27 feet deep, 200 feet wide and
about one mile long leading from the south
end of the turning basin to deep water in St.
Joseph Bay.
The final environmental statement was
prepared after careful review of the com-

ments received from various Federal, State
and local agencies as required by Section 102
of the National Environmental Quality.

Interested individuals and groups can
obtain a copy of the final environmental
statement by writing or telephoning the Army

In the past we have found very
little in which we could agree with
Governor Reubin Askew. This has
been particularly true with actions
of the Governor which directly
-affected Gulf County.
We find no trouble at all in
agreeing with a statement the
'Governor made last week in a
speech before the governor's confer-
ence in which he 'said, "Legalized
casino gambling would destroy the
tourist industry iq Florida". We
couldn't agree with the Governor
The Governor claims many
tourists come to Florida because,
they can bring their families to
beaches, parks, and decent and
wholesome family attractions. In his
presentation to the governors, As-
kew pointed out that the average
stay of a tourist in Florida is 18 days";
compared to four days in Las Vegas
where prices are lower. "Surely this
must mean that Florida has some-
thing more to offer people than
roulette wheels", he said.
The Governor missed one good
point to illustrate that Florida's
tourists are seeking good clean
entertainment. A visit to Disney

World near Orlando should convince
any skeptic that the bulk of the
tourists go where their children can
enjoy themselves. In the case of
Disney World, the adults seem to
flock to the attraction to get good,
clean entertainment for themselves
as well.
It might also be noted that
Disney World has caused to be built
in Orlando the world's largest
concentration of tourist rooms.
These are currently enjoying an
upsurge of business. This means
people are flocking to clean enter-
tainment in Orlando more so than
they are to the gambling-attractions
of Las Vegas.
The Governor has good argu-
ments on his side and we think he
has chosen the: proper side in this
matter. There is a unified effort by
:-ah organized group to see that.
Florida adopts the practice of
allowing the operation of casino
gambling in those counties which
want it.
We hope the Governor will stand
firm in his opposition and that
private citizens who feel in a like
manner will be just as vocal as the
proponents of casino gambling.

We saw something Monday
night on the way home from the
: office we wanted t& see and didn't
want to see.
We didn't want to see the man
:. lying on the pavement on Fifth
Street with an apparent heart at-
tack; no heartbeat and no breathing.
He had been struck down while
driving his car, which swerved into a
post and stopped.
We did want to see the efficient
way in which the Gulf County
Volunteer Ambulance Squad were
handling the situation. They were
efficient and they were obviously

doing what they knew how to do.
They had the man stretched out and
were applying heart massage and
mouth to mouth resuscitation in an
efficient manner. The emergency
treatment continued on the transfer
into the ambulance and the trip to
the hospital.
The man didn't revive but it
wasn't because he didn't receive the
proper attention soon enough. The
new ambulance squad may be young
and likely they will make mistakes
in the future, but their performance
Monday night showed they have
been ushered intp adulthood in the
emergency treatment business.

New Law

Tough On


A longtime problem for citi-
zens of Gulf County has been
that of drunken drivers on the
highways. Effective January
1, 1975 new laws in this area
have been passed by the
State Legislature. Essentially
these laws are addressed to
punishment-for DWI violators.
For first conviction, a mini-
mum fine of $25.00 and maxi-
mum of $500.00 may be assess-
ed or up to six months in jail.
Also the driver's license is
suspended for a minimum of
90 days.
For a second conviction, a
maximum fine of $500.00 may
be imposed along with a mini-
mum of 10 days and up to six
months in jail. The driver's
.license is suspended for a
minimum of six months.
For. a third conviction, a
maximum fine of $1,000.00
may be imposed with a mini-
mum of 30 days and up to 12
months in jail and the license
suspended for a minimum of
one year and up to five years.
County Court Judge, David
Taunton, wishes to advise the
public that the problem pre-
sented to the safety of Gulf
County citizens by drunken
drivers is of primary concern
as one of his responsibilities.
Presently three individuals
are serving 90 day sentences
for this offense.
It is recognized that many

and went to Orlando for the remainder of the
week to attend the annual meeting of the Florida

a crime against nature if we didn't go to Disney

call it in Orlando. So we spent nearly half a day
there Friday evening.
They were right in the middle of their slack
season when we were there. It looked as if only
about 100,000 people were there. The parking lot
had more cars in it than we have ever seen at a
Gator Bowl game or at a Florida-FSU football
game in either Tallahassee or Gainesville. If you
were to pin me down, I would have to say I
believe my estimate of 100,000 people was
conservative. ,- .

Other Cheek Turned Long Enough

It's time to ring down the
curtain on the anti-American
orgy which this country and
its citizens have been subject-
ed to for the-last 15 years.
The idea of citizens of the
*- most powerful nation on earth
forced to cringe under the
barbs of lesser countries
makes no sense. This is espec-
ially true when one considers
that nine out of 10 of the in-
sulters are on our dole.
The most recent incident
was at the Pan American

The attitude of the Mexican
fans cannot be excused. But it
can be understood when one
considers the hypocrisy of the
president of the nation at our
southern border who seems to
be looking for a niche in the
history books at our expense.
To claim that Mexican fans'
driving a U.S. girl diver to
tears by the violence of their
protest is attributable to Gen.
Pershing's chase of bandit
Pancho Villa is ridiculous.

It may .come as a shock to
the dedicated one-world liber-
als, but the reason the Cubans
and Mexicans are angry at the
American teams is because
our players are better than
theirs. Consistently, the U.S.
takes most of the gold medals.
And they are attained by win-
ning, not violence.
But this is only a microcosm

of the problem with a goodly
number of the nations of the

It appears the time for
quiet, patient tolerance of the

end. The Dr. Spock permissive

Ambassador Daniel Patrick
Moynihan at the United
Nations signals a departure
from the turn-the-other-cheek

school of diplomacy. It was
comforting to hear of him
telling the U.N. it was "none of
its business" what our troops
were doing in South Korea and
his terming Gen. Amin "a
racist murderer".
If we are to draw the line
somewhere perhaps it should
be at the U.N. and because of
its blatant anti-Semitic resolu-
tion backed by the Communist
and right wing nations. As
Moynihan stated: "There can-
not since the 1930s in Germany
have been as much anti-Semi-
tism spoken in one chamber."

The low sounds coming from
the breathing of the oxen,
sleeping almost within arm's

feeling of true security to our

Watching our friend the ox go

moment of true sadness.

no detail uncovered in furnishing entertainment
both pleasing to the eye and titillating to the
senses. We bought an $8.00 book of tickets for
each of us and used only one of them out of each
book to see the Country Bears, but still
thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon going into free
attraction after free attraction. The best thing I
saw was the Parade of Presidents. After the
introduction is over, the curtain rises and there
are all of our presidents sitting and standing on
the stage. All are animated, but they move, blink
their eyes, squirm in their chairs and whisper to
their neighbor. It takes a while before you realize
they are not real people in disguise.

Before and after our visit to see the "Big
Mouse", we spent our time in discussions and
meetings trying to get a solution to the many ,
problems which face Port St. Joe and all cities of
I confess, I thought these meetings were just
excuses to get away from home, relax and enjoy *
yourself. I was wrong. This particular meeting
had sessions starting at 8:30 every morning and
we stayed with it until 11:00 Thursday night and
10:00 in the final meeting Saturday night.
Cities in Florida face an uncertain future, as,
I'm sure cities from all over the nation face.
Here we face a future within the next two years
of having to come up with a plan to dispose of our
solid waste (garbage) in a manner other than
what we are now doing. The garbage must not
be allowed to pollute the ground water. We
learned at the meeting that there, is no
reasonably economical way to do this at the
present time for cities the size of Port St. Joe.
Large cities such as Miami, Jacksonville,
Orlando, Tampa and St. Petersburg can install
reclamation units which will meet the standards.
Small cities cannot. So, Port St. Joe has the
problem of coming up with a plan to dispose of its
solid waste in two years when there is no way
available at this time. That should keep us busy a
Cities also face problems from declining
revenues, increasingly complex state require-
ments and regulations, especially in the areas of
The main thrust of the meeting was to try to *
arrive at a solution to the financial problem and
settle on methods to persuade the Florida
Legislature to quit strangling cities with their

Senator Lawton Chiles spoke to us at noon
Saturday and said he would cast his vote to
continue Revenue Sharing but he would hold his
nose while he did it.
I personally oppose revenue sharing. Too
many cities are using the money to pay their bills
instead of using it to put into capital improve-
ments which will not require dependance on
revenue sharing for their operation. Even Gulf
County has placed a portion of its revenue
sharing funds into their budget for next year.
Cities from all over the state admitted at the
convention that they were paying salaries and
buying supplies with the federal money. This I
isn't what it was designed for and one has to do
some finagling to use it in this manner.
If Senator Chiles will offer some amend-
ments restricting further the use of the funds, he
may not have to pinch his nose quite so hard A
when he casts his vote in favor of the money bill.

In an opening speech to Parliament, King
George III acknowledged the rebellious war
in the colonies to be a "traitorious design" for
the purpose of forming an. independent em-
pire and authorized the raising of an army
to trounce the colonies into obedience. Few
volunteers were found among the British so
foreign troops, known as mercenaries, were
hired to fight rebel Americans.

Dear G. W.,
A recent survey in the
United States showed that 68
percent of American adults
drink at least occasionally.
The other 32 percent have
exercised their freedom of
choice not to drink.
The group who drinks to ex-
cess and are possible alco-
holics, we are trying to reach.
In this group, there are about
nine million alcoholics in our
country. With that large of a
number being multiplied by
four, because each alcoholic
affects at least three other
people, we are talking about 36
.million people being affected
by alcoholism.

If you read your driver's

have given this consent. The
U.S. Supreme Court has ruled
on this and has determined
this does not violate your right

you refuse a test, you can have

out from a fisherman or
dramatically diving in to the
waves to catch their own.
But, since 1960, the birds
have gone into a sudden and
mysterious decline, vanishing
almost entirely from Louisi-
ana and Texas and becoming
seriously reduced in South
Carolina. Only in Florida do
they appear to be successfully
breeding and maintaining
their former abundance.
The pelicans',decline was so
rapid that the exact cause is
still unknown. It now appears
that pesticides such as DDT
and endrin could have been
responsible with. both chemi-

heavy mortality in adults and
young today.

years continuous service
in forestry serving Bay

cope with!
Both native Floridians, Ar-
chie has led the more exciting
life of the two, not only in
firefighting duties, but saw
action during World War II in

Verna stated that her excite-
ment in life came when she
met "Gentleman Archie", and
their life together has been
"wonderful" since.
Archie is a Master Mason in

the men who go down to the
sea in ships will be a colorful
part of the Florida Seafood
Festival this Saturday, Nov-
ember 1.
Clergymen of several de-
nominations will participate
in the Blessing of the Fleet at
the Apalachicola River front
in Battery Park at 3:30 p.m.,
when some 30 shrimp boats,
ranging in size up to 80 feet,
will steam by gaily decorated
with flags and pennants of
many hues.
Visitors are urged to bring
movie and other cameras to
record the centuries-old ritual
observed in Mediterrean and
other countries of Europe.

goes to the water front. He
blesses the boats and calls on
God to protect the men, their
boats and reward them with
successful catches.
As various ethnic groups
migrated to America, this
ritual was brought here. Other
Florida cities in which the
custom is observed are Fer-
nandina Beach, Mayport, St.
Augustine and Tarpon
Springs, as well as Biloxi in
Mississippi and Morgan City
in Louisiana.
At most blessings, one or
two priests of different denom-
inatins participate, but in
Apalachicola the ritual will be
performed by those of three
major faiths.
Following the invocation by
the Reverend David Day of
the United Methodist Church,
the Rev. Father Edward Kir-
by of St. Patricks Catholic
Church will speak on the
significance of the blessing,
then as the boats move down
the river and pass in review,
the priests will alternate in
blessing them. Participating
in this year's blessing in addi-
tion to Father Kirby, will be
Sidney Ellis of Trinity Epis-
copal Church and a priest of
the Greek Orthodox Church.
This ceremony is part of a
full program during the Festi-
val. Other events and attrac-
tions include a parade, sea-
food dinner, oyster shucking
contest, oyster eating contest,
a crab race, gospel sing, street
dance and grand ball. An art
sale and flea market will be
busy on the downtown streets,
a carnival for the kiddies, free
historic tours leaving from the
marina area of the park, and
open house at Gorrie Museum,
which contains memorabilia of
the inventor of artificial ice
and air conditioning.
Whether you choose to
plunge headlong into the festi-
vities, or simply wish for a
quiet day on the coast and a

seafood feast, the place to be Apalachicola and the Florida
on Saturday, November 1, is Seafood Festival.

On Monday, November 3
and again on Monday, Decem-
ber 8, schools will be dismiss-
ed at 1:00 p.m. so that teach-
ers may visit local businesses
and industries cooperating in
the program.
Each year two half-day in-
service sessions are provided
for teachers to participate in a
"Know Your Community Re-
sources" activity. The pur-
pose of this inservice provides
an opportunity for teachers to
visit the various businesses
and industries of the school
Through these visits teach-
ers acquire first hand know-
ledge about the world or work
in the community, learn what
the business world expects of
education, and gather occupa-
tional information that will
help them adapt their classes
to the goals and opportunities
of students.
In commenting on last
year's activity, Mrs. Peggy
Whitfield, a teacher at High-
land View Elementary School,
said, "It was a great learning
experience for me! I want my
students to learn useful infor-
mation and be able to USE
what they learn. Through
these visitations we are able to
work cooperatively with the

entire community toward
helping students become suc-
cessful in adult life."
Gene Raffield, Vice Presi-
dent and General Manager of
Raffield Fisheries, said, "This
type activity is long past due
and I am glad the educational
community has come to busi-
ness and industry to become
familiar with the way we can
work together to prepare our
future labor market for em-
ployment at home."
