Lottery, Drug Raid
Month Long Investigation Nets Eight Arrests
Eight arrests were made in a combined raid
against individuals involved in lottery and drug
sale operations in north Port St. Joe Tuesday
afternoon, according to Gulf County Sheriff Al
Harrison. The Sheriff said the eight were part. of
a growing list of wanted parties currently being
pursued by the Department.
- A abidingg party of Sheriff's Deputies,
Florida Department of Law Enforcement
officers, Port St. Joe Police Department officers
and state Beverage Department agents swooped
down on the area Tuesday afternoon, and, for
about two hours, closed in a net on the suspects.
Sheriff Harrison said that when all arrests are
made on the current investigation "there will be
about 14 persons in custody on at least 34
Arrested Tuesday were: Johnnie Mae
Robinson, Main Street; Dorothy Butler, 186
Avenue B; Johnny Charles Thomas, 173 Avenue
E; Kylar Hamilton, 113 Apollo Street; Aphonso
Williams, 186 Avenue B; Eddie Miner, 419 Main
Street; Charles Wilson, 245 Avenue A; Pat
McNair, 318 Main Street.
All those arrested Tuesday were charged
with conducting a lottery and drug charges.
"We have at least six more persons on our
list at the present time", Sheriff 'Harrison said,
"and we hope to have them in custody in a short
Sheriff Harrison said undercover investiga-
tion had been under way in the north Port St. Joe
area for at least two months in order to obtain
evidence for Tuesday's arrests.
"There is more to the lottery and drug
operations ini this area and we're going to clean
them all up before we're finished", Sheriff
Harrison said. "The people of that area are going
to be able to walk on the streets safely once again
when we're through"!', h added.
The Sheriff said investigation is showing the
gambling and drug operations in the area are
entangled with each otier "Some of it has
direction from the MiArpi area, making it a
syndicated operation arid some of it is strictly
home-grown", he said.
The Sheriff said investigations currently
under way range all thl ,way from the sale of
narcotics, dealing in stolenn property and
conducting a lottery. "It's been going on for
some time, but this is: the beginning of an
operation to root it out df our community", the

NATHAN PETERS, Jr.
Gene Raffield said the first of the week he was more
than pleased with the ruling of Gulf County Judge David
--Taunton dismissing state charges against -he and his
-- "I felt all along the charges wouldn't stand up",
Raffield said. He and his firm, along with four other people
were charged with illegally transporting food fish into
Florida which had been caught with a purse seine. The
-charges stem from a 30-year old statute which had not been
enforced in Florida in the 30 years it has been on the books.
"We knew it was there, just as every other fisherman in
Florida knew it was, there. But, it was never enforced and
now, without any warning, we were chosen out of
thousands of Florida fishermen to be the one it is applied
to". A part of Raffield's defense to the charges against him
was that the Department of Natural Resources director,
Dr. Elton Gissendaner was harassing he and his firm.
Judge Taunton issued his findings Friday of last week,
,after a hearing 10 days prior on a request by Raffield's
-attornieys that the charges be dismissed. Listing two
. reasons for dismissing the charges, Judge Taunton said, 0)
the statute violates state and federal due process
constitutional provisions, and; 2) the statute also violates
the commerce clause of the United States Constitution.
Judge Taunton's order cites disagreement over
.application of the law between Marine officers and DNR
attorneys in depositions given by both. The Judge also
cited vague and uncertain answers given in response to
definite questions asked Marine Patrol officials concern-
ing the law as part of the basis for his decision.
Raffield also defends himself by saying his boat was
fishing in federal waters, off the coast of Louisiana, under
Direct federal fisheries observation and direction when the
catch for which he was arrested was caught.
Since the original charge was made by the state of
Florida in July, a federal grand jury in Louisiana has filed
charges against the local firm as a result of the state
charges filed. The grand jury charges came as the result of
violation of a state law by transporting the food fish across
the state line in violation of the state law.
"I presume if the state charge is dropped and the state
law declaration of being unconstitutional stands, the grand
jury charges will have no basis", Raffield said.
"I don't know whether or not the state will appeal the
:-Judge's ruling 'or not", the fisheries operator. said. A
telephone call to the DNR legal department failed to
,:Secure the information and the person who was supposed to
i'eturn the call and give the information never called.
Charges were dropped on September 18 against
:Richard C. Sheffer, 'Stewart Howard Lyle, Alva D.
-VcPherson and Marie Helen Davis, who had been arrested
by DNR along with Raffield in July.

Commission Re-Affirms Budget
In a special meeting of the City Commission Tuesday
morning, the Commission agreed on a split to allow the
City budget to stand as adopted a week ago.
Assistant State Attorney Dennis Beesting, Supervisor ch ck over voting machine forms Tuesday night in tallying
of elections Cora Sue Robinson and Judge David Taunton the"election returns.
Commissioners Emily Roche and Nathan Peters, Jr.,
raised objections to the approved budget at the last
Commission meeting, stating they had not been informed
the salary increases for Wastewater Treatment Plant
employees and those City employees who work in other
capacities were not receiving identical wage increases for
the year. The WWP employees received three and a half
percent increases while other city employees had
increases of $600 per year for each employee included in
The majority of the Commission, Mayor Frank Pate,
and Commissioners Billy Fleming and James B. Roberts
said the WWP salary increase was suggested by the
Tripartite committee, who makes policy suggestions to the
City Commission and have usually been followed since the
plant went into operation some 13 years ago. The tripartite
committee is made up of representatives of St. Joe Paper
Company and Sylvachem, who pay all but about two
percent of the expense of the plant and the City of Port St.
Joe, who manages the operation.
Clerk Alden Farris told the Commission in other
business matters Tuesday the City had just received a
letter stating there would be no federal revenue sharing
funds forthcoming this year. "We have $35,000 included in
this year's budget from this source revenue which we will
not get", Farris reported.
Discussing a problem of enforcing lot maintenance at
the cemeteries, attorney Rish notified the Commission
they had nothing in their cemetery ordinance which would
allow them to trespass on the private lots, even though they
might be unsightly.
Mayor Pate instructed Rish to work with Commis-
sioner Roche and Clerk Farris to come up with an
ordinance to allow the City to take steps to get property
cleaned off. The trio was also charged to look further into
whether or not a mausoleum operation at the cemetery
would be feasible.
-- ,'. l -^ (.-. ~ '-'-i' -..
First, we have a move in our
City Commission to get rid of the
police chief and now there is an
attempt being made to get rid of
the City Clerk.
It seems to us that if Commis-
sioners Roche and Peters are
becoming discontented with the
work of our City's department
heads, it is partially their fault.
With the growing dissention
around City Hall which these two
.Commissioners are stirring up, it
S would seem to us it would be almost
' impossible for City employees-
especially department heads who
seem to be in season, now-to do
their work as they should. Their
minds are understandably on whe-
ther or not the firing gun will be
next aimed at them.
The most recent desire to fire
has been aimed at our City Clerk
Alden Farris, and we think the
reason given is an unfair one.
Nobody can truthfully say Farris
doesn't do his job in the proper
manner. He does that and wp'll
remain adamant on that point.
Two years ago, the City
received the first audit report ever
which didn't have the first demerit,
criticism or suggestion on it. The
audit report was perfect for the
first time in the City's history. The
audit report is the City Clerk's
report card. Ours made all A plus

A letter to the Commission
recently by Commissioners Roche
and Peters made much of the fact
they felt they were mis-led by their
claim that Farris didn't inform
Congratulations to Ward Ridge
for agreeing at such an overwhelm-
ing, percentage to come into the
City of Port St. Joe. We need you
and you need us. We should be of
mutual benefit to each other.
Both the City of Ward Ridge
and the City of Port St. Joe were
boxed in by their natural boundar-
ies and would find it hard to expend
its city limits. Should the time

them the wage increase for City
employees and the wage increase
for Wastewater Treatment plant
employees' was different. Roche
claimed she specifically asked
Farris if everybody got the same
raise. She also claims Farris
answered that they were. There
are ways to interpret both the
'question and the answer so that
both parties would have been
perfectly correct in their claims.
But that's another article.
The way we see it, the two
Commissioners are more to blame
for a lack of knowledge than is the
City Clerk. Reading the letter tells
-us that these two have approved
and made the tax payers of'Port St.
Joe responsible for a $5.9 million
budget without even reading the
document! Included in this year's
spending plan was a village
increase of 13.5 percent. It seems to
us if. the Commissioners were
really looking after our interest,
they would have pored over the
budget figures with a fine-tooth
comb to find ways it could possibly
be reduced. With' this kind of
public-serving search, they would
surely have seen that the increase
in wages for the Wastewater
Treatment plant wasn't figured on
the same yardstick as the City
employee wages. And therein lies
any breakdown in communications
between Farris and Roche. When
Roche asked her question she
asked for information about City
wage rates-not City and Waste-
water Treatment plant.
It wasn't Farris' duty to tell
them what was in the budget. It
was their 'duty to find out for

Port St. Joe and Panhandle Don't Consider Football A Waste of Time
IT SEEMS WE have a football
program going at Port St. Joe High
School for almost anybody who wants
to play. There were two levels of
programs playing Thursday after-
noon and evening and another level
playing Friday night. Saturday, the
college level takes over and on
Sunday and Monday, the profession-
als are active. That leaves only
Tuesday and Wednesday for baseball,
basketball or paddle ball.
I have been around here a long
time, but I have never seen as-many
boys playing football, organized on
one level or another here in Port St.
Joe, as are playing this year.

sons playing football with another
grandfather. We were talking about
the grandson who passes in order to

I replied, "He likes to play

pretty substantial reputation here in
the Panhandle for its sports teams.
We're not champions.every year, but
we're expected to be among the
competitors every year.
And that reputation goes for
football, basketball, baseball .
whatever we play, we're expected to
be one of the teams one has to beat in
order to have a winning season.
And, if you want to get into a
friendly argument right quick here in
our town, just mention some college
team being better than another one,
and you're likely to get some
conversation about almost any school
you want to talk about.
We're pretty cosmopolitan here in
Port St. Joe. There are alumni from
almost every college in the southeast
and they are a loyal lot. They stick up
for their schools.
Even today, when not many of the
more popular teams are winning this
far into the season except Alabama,
Auburn and Georgia, there is still a
good bit of loyalty going around.
What we are saying is that even
though the Serinoles have a dull
scalping knife this far into the season;
even though the Gators have gone on a
bland diet and the Sharks haven't
even started feeding yet, they'll still
draw plenty of local support when
they take the field anywhere.
Maybe that home support is
what makes them so competitive year

The Last Barber Shop
BARBER SHOPS ARE fast becoming a thing of the
I became acutely aware of this last Thursday when
I went to have my hair cut.
I have noticed over the last ten years or so that the
number of barbers in our barber shop has dwindled
from five to two. And now they tell me they are in
danger of closing the doors forever. Can you imagine
Cooper's Barber Shop closing down? The reason, they
tell me, is lack of business.
They also informed me that our barber shop is the
only full-time barber shop between Perry and Panama
City. There are, of course, a few in Tallahassee, but
going north don't count. East, west and south are the
only directions we recognize here.
ANYWAY, I INQUIRED'as to the reason they have
a serious lack of business, especially since they offer
different types of cuts and styling. '"Everyone goes to
beauty shops nowadays," on&of the barbers remarked.
"And it's not that we are out priced. We charge about
half what they (beauty shops) charge." he continued.
The barber shop was once, to the male,, what the
beauty shop is to women. I remember it being the focal
point of male talk in our community. Men would gather
there on Saturdays and discuss football, baseball,
fishing, golf and many of the latest local, national and
international events. One could get a variety of
opinions, ranging from conservative to mildly liberal.
Barber shop opinions, particularly in the South, were
slanted slightly toward the conservative point of view.
BARBERS HAVE ALWAYS been noted for their
keen interest in humor. I'll grant you that barbers, for
the most part, know the latest jokes quicker than Bob
Hope.. .well, almost as fast. And, like Mr. Hope, they
don't harbor any bad jokes. Telling a bad joke, to
barbers, is like giving .a bad haircut; there ain't no
room for neither, at the barber shop.
Barbers also shave around your ears and your neck
and put that strong smellin' stuff on it that burns like
the dickens. They will also dust off your shirt or coat
when they finish. It still doesn't stop hair from getting
down the back of your shirt and itching all day. Only a
bath and a clean shirt can stop that.

BARBER SHOPS ARE great for.debates. Some of
the greatest debates I've ever heard were in barber
shops. Our local barber shop is the scene, quite often, of
some of-the most heated debates in ,the South. They
could be referred to more as "arguments" but they are
laced with wit and friendly jabs that only a keen ear can
detect. To a stranger, however, they might' seem to be
on the verge of fighting.
I sincerely hope-we don'tJost our barber shop.
Although I know it's a changingworld, there .is a manly
smell and Air to a barber shop. Also, it's a part of our
heritage that I hope "remains with us.

New Facility to Care
for Up to 75 Children
Ned Ailes, director of the
Gulf County Guidance Clinic,
outlined plans for a new,
licensed, child .care program
which will be initiated by the
Clinic in just a few vw'eeks.
Ailes pointed out that the
Clinic is just awaiting com-
pletion of a 3,040 square foot
addition to their building on
Williams Avenue to house the
new service before opening it
to the public.
-'Our facility will be com-
pletely state licensed and will
accept children from ages of
six\ weeks to school age",
Ailes said. He pointed out the
center would fill a real need
in the community.
Ailes said the center will
accept up to 75 children in its
program and will be open
from 7:30 a.m., to 9:00 p.m.
"This service isn't being
provided with government
grants", Ailes said. "We
borrowed the money to build
the facilities and will pay
erhployees to provide the
care 'and services offered in
the new facility", he said.
"We will be strictly fee
supported", he pointed out.

Port St. Joe's Sharks play-

three tough quarters of foot-
ball Friday night, before the
Devils cashed in on a sputter-
ing offense to hand the
Sharks their third defeat of
Twice in the final period, a
Mickey Gainnie pass was
tipped up into the air by-the
intended receiver, only to
come down in Blue Devil
hands and run for touch-
downs. One might expect one
such pass deflection in an
entire season, but twice in
one quarter, in one game,
was too much for the Sharks.
The Blue Devils took the
opening kick-off and march-
ed from their own 30 yard
line in six plays into the
Sharks' end zone. Greg Tay-
lor racked up 64 yards in the
drive, but could never get
un-trhcked again during -the
After this initial drive, the
Shark stiffened and held the
Devils at bay until Renford
Denson took a seven yard
scoring strike from Steve
Russ with 50 seconds left in
the first half, sent the teams
into the locker rooms with a
13-0 Bonifay lead.
About mid-way through the
third period, the Blue Devils
had a sluggish drive moving
along, when Joe Norton
intercepted a Steve Russ
pass at the Bonifay 44 yard
line and ran back to the five
before he was knocked out of
Tim Wilder pushed the ball
to the one on a keeper, then
moved inches closer or a
second carry. On the third
try, Wilder put the ball into
the end zone and the Sharks
had their only score of "the
night, but were still in 'the
game with a 13-6 score.
The TD sparked up the
Sharks and early in the final
period, with the Blue Devils
threatening on the one yard
line, the Shark line forced a
Bonifay fumble and Robert
Ramsey came up with ,the
ball for Port St. Joe. J
Two plays later, Ja on
Harris intercepted a Gaidhie
pass and ran it into the end
zone, moving the score -to
Then came the two fateful
deflected passes which were
picked off by Bonifay defen-
ders before the ball hit the
ground and the Sharks had
lost their third outing. ,,
Defensively, Bink Norton
led the Sharks with eight
tackles and two assists. Ter-
rance Farmer terrorized the
Blue Devils with seven tack-

The Wewahitchka Gators
are beginning to attract
attention here in the Pan-
handle with three straight
wins under their (Gator skin)
belt. The Gators jumped on
Greensboro last Friday night
for a 24-18 win in a double
Even though the offense
churned out 290 yards in a
predominately running at-
tack, it was the Gator
defense which held Greens-
boro runners in check, allow-,
ing them only three yards
rushing for the night.
Greensboro took the lead in
the game in the first period,
when one of eight passes was
good from 12 yards out, when
Eddie Williams hit John
Wood for the score. The
Gators blocked the extra
The Gators tied the score in
the second period, when Roy
Myers bulled over from one
"yard "out and' this time,
Greensboro blocked the ex-
tra point try.
Both the Gators and
Greensboro scored in the
third period. The Gators sent
John Myers on a three yard
plunge to score and again the
extra point kick was blocked.
Then Williams kept the ball
on a one yard plunge to tie
the score and send the game
In the first period of
overtime, John Myers put the
Gators ahead on a five yard
run, but Greensboro battled
back to tie the game again on
a one yard plunge.
In the .second overtime,
Myers again took the ball for
the Gators and put them
ahead with a sparkling 10
yard ddsh across the goal
line, which Greensboro was
unable to answer.
John Myers was the main
offensive thrust for the Ga-
tors, rushing for 170 yards
and scoring three touch-
downs. Marcus Willims had
32 yards to his credit.
Billy Joe Smiley threw the
pigskin nine times and con-
nected with three for 66
Rusty Wood led the stout
Gator defense with 10 tack-
les. Paul Groom added eight
tackles and John Whitfield,
Durand McLeod and Gary
Herring each had five.
The game Friday night
was unusual in that neither
team made an extra point
count. Both teams blocked
every attempt at kicking an
extra point by their oppo-

STyndale, Translator of Bible, One of Better 16th Century Scholars
On many Church calen-
' dars, William Tyndale will be
remembered this coming
Monday, October 6.
Tyndale's name is remem-
bered primarily because of
his work as a translator of
the Bible. He was probably
one of the better scholars of
the sixteenth century, though
* his work was marred by
forced arguments in a few
Not to say that he wasn't
given good reason to argue.
King Henry VIII, and practi-
cally every one else in
authority opposed the trans-
lation of scripture into Eng-
lish. Tyndale was forced to
live a cloak and dagger life. ,
He escaped into Germany,
where a more liberal ap-
proach was being allowed in
biblical scholarship. Luther
had established a tradition
there of translation from
original languages into na-
tive tongues which has pre-
vailed to this day.
* Tyndale had completed the
New Testament and portions
plough shall know more
scripture than thou doest."
. Tyndale was human and so
were those who opposed his
work. Each was sure that
they were on the side of God.
qne group feared that the
.modernization of the Bible's
language would adversly af-
fect the Church. The other
,believed that the modern
translations of the good. book
would save many who could
not otherwise know its mean-
.The spirit of both parties
lives on in the modern world.
There are those who would
have to examine their favor-
ite doctrines if a new transla-
tion were to be used by the
people. And there are those
who are anxious to overhaul
old teachings and see them in
a new light.
Tyndale was but one of:
many translators who have
put their lives and reputa-
tions on the line so that we
who follow may find God's
work in our own language.
The modern Church owes
them all a debt of gratitude.
If it were not for the
dedicated efforts of so many,
the Bible would not be
readable to the speakers of
more than 1,326 modern
Just before he was stran-
gled, Tyndale said, "Lord,
open the king of England's
eyes." The prayer was pro-
phetic. Not only can royalty
read the Bible, most of us can
read it as well.
However, not reading the
Bible is just as bad as not
being able to read it. Perhaps
if we could hear an updated'
version of Tyndale's last
words they would be trans-
lated this way: Lord, open
the eyes of those who can
read, that they may pick up
your word and understand.
of the Old Testament when a
man he had befriended be-
trayed him in Brussels.
There on October 6, 1536 he
was strangled at the stake,
and his body was burned.
Tyndale was not a person
who used the kid 'glove
approach himself. His lack of
tact may have added fuel to
the opposition of his transla-
tion work. He is quoted as.

churchman, "If God spare

Increase Among Wildlife Posing
Threat to Public Human Health
A recent increase in the spread of
rabies in Florida wildlife poses a"
threat to public health, and efforts to
control the disease in wildlife have
been marginally effective at best,
according to a scientist at the Institute
of Food and Agricultural Sciences
(IFAS) College of Veterinary Medi-
Michael Burridge, chairman of
She IFAS department of infectious
diseases reports that laboratory con-
firmed cases of rabies in Florida
wildlife increased by over 150 percent
during the last decade.
"Over 85 percent of all laboratory
confirmed cases of rabies in the state
are seen in wild animals," says
Burridge. "With Florida's rapid land
development, more and more people
and pets are placed in the midst of
potentially rabid wild animals. In
almost every case where a pet is
infected with rabies, the source of the
virus was a wild animal. In the U S.,
rabies virus is rarely spread between
..,domestic animals," he says.
,Attempts to control rabies in
wildlife have centered on reduction of
their populations by shooting, poison-
ing or trapping, and have met with
marginal success. Research, notably
in France and Canada, is exploring
the potential of immunizing free-rang-
ing wildlife, as an alternative to
Although there have been no
reported human cases of rabies in
'Florida since 1948, the virus is still
considered a threat to public health.
Each year in the U.S., 20,000 to 30,000 .
persons are treated for exposure to
rabies, according to Morbidity and
Mortality Weekly Report. Burridge
* says that exposure typically results
from animal bites, although handling
sick wild or domestic animals can also
result in exposure.
The risk of an exposed person
developing rabies depends on many

hunters will be allowed on the
island at any one time during
the Archery Hunt; a maxi-

Center and the rest of the
Tyndall family are on the
final countdown for "William
Tell '86." Every other year
the base hosts the Tactical
Air Command sponsored
U.S. Air Force Air-to-Air
Weapons Meet. This year's
meet, held from Oct. 12 25,
will draw, more than 1,000
competitors, judges and visi-
tors to Tyndall, as the best
air-to-air teams from around
the world converge to de-
monstrate their aerial skills
in a simulated combat envi-
ronment. For Tyndall, it's a
total team effort preparing
for the competition.
"Tyndallites have spent
months of planning, coordi-
nating and hard work to host
this year's event," said Lt.
Col. Bob McAllister, the
base's WT '86 project officer.
"Almost every office and
shop on base is involved to
make it the most exciting
According to McAllister,
"William Tell is a major
undertaking and everyone on
base is putting forth a
coordinated' effort. It's im-
possible to name all those
contributing because support
has come from across the
board. It spans from main-
tenance, civil engineering,
operations and communica-
tions, to security police,
billeting, food services, pro-
tocol and public affairs."
Activities will begin Oct.
8th, when the first support
teams arrive. Then, on Oct.
12th, the 10 participating
aircrews make their appear-
ance over the Tyndall flight
line in a precision-timed
arrival. The two weeks of
intense competition will start
Oct. 13th, and officially end
with an awards ceremony
