City To Continue n
SCommission Decides to Reject All Bids In Favor
Of Continued Municipally-Operated System
The City Commission met
yesterday in a special session to
consider Iids for providing solid
waste collectionn for their custom-
e.r fr'm private collection firms.
On a b roader basis, the Commis-
sion was making a decision on
whether, or not the City would
continue operation of its solid'
waste department or would they
hire it done.
.On the recommendation of
Mayor Frank Pate, the Commis-
sion was unanimous in its deci-
sion to continue operation of
its own solid waste collection
With three bids from three
firms .for the. Board to consider,
the Commission made a major
decision, not to follow the route of,
Gulf County in contracting its
service. Generally speaking, the
bidi from private collectors were
close enough to the charges now
levied by the City for home-
owners, to be given careful con-
Mayor Pate said, 'Their rates-
for commercial customers were
unreasonable and their trash col-
lection guidelines were too tight
to make uswant to give the s,6r-
vice up." Commercial rates ran
up to $600 and $800 for some
commercial users. The highest
rate the City charges is '$300 per
One of the bidding firms rec-
ommended to the City that they
st4y in the business, saying, "We
can't provide collection as effi-
ciently and for as little cost as
you are doing."
The special meeting came iim-
mediately after the regular meet-
ing. Tuesday night; when an
amendment to the solid waste or-
dinance, ,establishing penalties
for failure to separate recyclables
from other debris and providing a
penalty for ignoring notices, of
that failure, wasimade.
The ordinance change was
made after the second reading of
the new requirement.
The ordinance, amendment'
would levy a sur-charge of up to
twice the normal rate'for failure
to segregate the recyclable mate-
rial, placing it in a separate bag;

The new ordinance will go.
into effect July 21.
CITY PARKS WORK
Mayor Pate advised the Com-
mission at Tuesday's meeting
that it Is his Information funds
from a recent grant will be availa-
ble in about 10 days to begin
work on development of the Un-
ion Bank Park property. The

must be matched with $25,000
from the City.

Chief Deputy Suspended
By Acting Sheriff Coates
The latest act in the melodrama involving the investigation of
Sheriff Al Harrison's office was played out yesterday with the
suspension of Chief Deputy Jack Davila.
Davila, a veteran with the Department, was suspended with
pay yesterday afternoon by acting Sheriff James Coates for an
indefinite period of time. Sheriff Coates told The Star Davila
wasn't being suspected of any crime or wrong doing in his office
but, "I suspended him to make, it more convenient for other
members of the Department to communicate with the investiga-
tors with more ease," Coates said.
The interim Sheriff said he mote or less suspended Davila
"for the good of the order, you might say. If I had, suspected Da-
- vila of any illegal activities I would have suspended him without
pay." As the situation stands now, Davila is not on the job but
he is receiving full pay. .
Davila will still be in constant touch with the Department to
assist in any on-going investigations he may be involved in.

-Blame -it On '
WE CAN LONGER expect a health bill which' provides
protection, to the American public. We had just as. well forget it
-and go' ,i about por business. We can forget it because the
health issue has'.become a political issue. Our Congress and our
state 'legislitu6. re ,more interested in who .gets the credit for
th) o 'erposed'law than they are in doing the people a service.
Just theother day, in an argument over the health care bill,
'Senri Edward' Kennedy waxed eloquent with the words, 'There is
'nio universal and there is no comprehensive coverage unless all
Ameriqans are assured that as of a certain date they are going to
have coverage." Heck,' Senator, there are still Americans who
.don't have a roof over their heads, or can't pay their light bill, or
who don't eat regularly, in this land of plenty. How are you going
to guarantee they all have adequate health coverage?
Then, there was the quote from the. opposite side of the aisle;
'whnri Aliabaia's Republican representative, Newt Gingrich ad-
Svised Republicans not to offer amendments to improve the Dem-
ocratic bill. Don't cooperate!
IN .IHE STATE OF Florida tliere is just as much trying to
thread a needle with gloves on.
S Florida, which has been touted as setting the pattern for the
nation to follow, is about as near to ,a workable plan as the north
pole is to the south pole. Florida is attempting to sell its people
on a plan which would cost'them nothing'and even the people of
Florida don't believe that!
Governor Chiles is using the health bundle as fodder foi re-
election and the people aren't buying, it. JustT'or information, he
proposes to pay for his plan through 'some magical formula by
using medicare -funds. The medicare funds aren't sufficient to
' do what they are supposed to do. Every year they run out before
i the year is over and medicade pays a doctor only about 25% of
A his normal charges. Medicade does one thing "normal" however.
The doctor has to wait for up to six months for his 25% pay-
ment. He's accustomed to that.
WE DON'T THINK THE American public will accept any less
treatment than they are now receiving. We do not think he will
accept universal health care-receiving all, the care he wants as
I often as he wants-because he knows such a .system will be
If the law makers of this nation and state would just arrive at
a system where a person can purchase 'medical insurance which
will pay some portion of his medical expenses when they occur,
we think the American public will have been served adequately.
And for pete's sake, quit being divided over the final solution
'and, find a middle ground which will serve us with what We have
'come to expect. the best medical care in the world. We are a
';firm believer in that old cliche, "Wonders CAN be done if we

Be Patient, FDLE

ently. We are also set in our opinions that everything we do isn't
'wrong. It may not be as you do them, but they're not wrong.
SWE LIKE TO THINK we can take care of our own. Since Gulf
County was formed, 70 years ago, Gulf County has had five men

to be a molester of anyone. If a Sheriff even combed his hair dif-
ferently, the entire county would know it before the sun went
down. You, can't hide anything in Gulf county. '
We have had our. differences. Some.didn't like a certain man-
ner of operation of'a particular Sheriff, but we were all agreed,
his actions weren't against the law.
NOW, ALL OF A sudden, a Sheriff, who is a neighbor to all of

liked me, or anything about me.
And his wife, Jo-Jo, kept asking
about my family, "couldn't I pos-
sibly be related to a President...?"
And I remember the day of
the wedding, how circumspectly
your great-grandmother looked
me over. 'Course, she wasn't
alone. The whole mob was check-

you can relate-you're getting the

Wait 'til you start having to

six hours shaking hands and
hugging necks-and they were all
cousins or uncles or sister-in-

me on the, back and saying to
folks, "My new grandson. Did you

WHEN I READ THE newspa-

read the front page and all the
pages in between on the way to

about a 10 minute stop at the
spori-ts page to see how the Braves
did the night before and scan the...
box scores. ,
When I reach the comics page
I come to a screeching halt.
The comics page gets me in
the proper mood for the day.-.,
Everything in between the front
page and the comics page has

week, after a hectic day of getting

around the editorial; skimmed
through the. sports page; slid
through the business section and
landed smack in the middleof the
comics page. :
It was the morning after some
particularly stressful stories and
every comic I read was actually
designed and edited to give the
reader a laugh.
Beetle Bailey had painted fac-
es on the bottom of a sleeping
Sarge's bare feet and General
Halftrack looked at them quizzi-
cally and muttered, "Now, what?"
Snuffy Smith got all over Ju-
ghaid for the marks on his report
card, with a great big, "Balls, 0'
Fire!" only to have Jughaid say;
"Well, I got all A's!!'"
This went, on all through the

IN THE MORNING I am usu-
ally feeling bad enough, having to
get up before the sun gets fully
up. I don't need messages in the
comics tweaking my social con-
science. What I really need is just
what I received; a humorous lift!
I feel cheated when I turn to
the comics page and see a

should be- observed and obeyed.; ..

S-All -dou 6ung(i) Jeople who live at home or in an apartment,
pay attention: I'm about to give you some information that will be of
.interest, to you about 20 to.40 years from now, depending on your
present age. -. ,-
.There. dre ,cycles in Life,, good and bad" that come about and
you have no way of controlling them. "Hogwash!" you might say. Or,
you, might say; asI once did, that you can control your life and
everything in it. ".: *
Well, maybe your can, but I can't. Let me give you a little exam-
ple of what I mean. ,
One day;' a little over a week ago, I stepped into our laundry
,room and fouhd the floor covered with water. At first I thought our
basement had' been leaking again, but I soon realized it hadn't
rained in' several weeks, so that couldn't be the .problem.
,"It's the hot water heater," my.wife said when I told her about it.
"It's been leakihg'for several days.."
A'hunried call, to the gas company solved the problem: A new
hot water heater and a bill to go with it.
About two.days later, I came home and saw that someone had
washed a load of dishes in the sink. That's strange, I thought, given
the -fact that we.-have' a dishwasher.
Q.P, Wise warned me several years ago that our dishwasher
was worn out. It lasted several years, a tribute to the work Mr. Q.P.
A 'phone call to our local hardware the next day made us the
proud owners of a new dishwasher. We also received little, piece of
paper with it that hals "Invoice" written at the top. :
Less 'than a week later, my wife and I came in from visiting my
sister, who was in the hospital in Dothan, and found our- kitchen
floor flooded with water.
:"Ift's the air conditioner drain that's stopped up," my wife said.'
"I had to call the repairman last week." 'Well," I said, not believing:
this could happen on a weekend, "you've got to call him again."'
All weekend: we mopped and put towels down to stop the flood
of water. When Dav'id finally came on Monday, the news wvas not
good. "It mfght be a hole in the holding pan, and that will require a
new unit." ...
The Iverdict is still out on that one. ,
The next Saturday afternoon I decided to cut the grass (our
son was in Mexico ohnhis senior trip) and after that I was going to
-grill a steak) for my wife and I. Our lawn mower is ,a push mower
with those Big wheels on the rear so it will push easily and the grill
is one of those gas grills that you push a button and if lights up.
The lawn mower broke down oi my second round and wouldn't,
start, and the gas grill wouldn't start. And when I tried to light it
with a match,. it almost exploded. The hair on my arm was burned
off and it almost scared the dog to death. .
I cooked the meat very carefully, went inside and ate, and then
took a shower and went to bed. No use tempting fate any longer, I
By the way, it wasn't only the hot water heater that was leak-
ing, we found out yesterday. The washing machine has a leak, too.
If it wasn't for bad luck these past few weeks. I wouldn't have
no luck at all!!! .
Let's shuffle and deal again!

has been suspended by Governor Chiles temporarily; he is
still the Sheriff of.Gulf County. The Governor, under the laws
of Florida, may suspend an elected official based on an accu-
sation alone. The accusation can be made without any factur
al basis. In Sheriff Harrison's case, an allegation was made,
by an agent of the FDLE, and that allegation was the sole ba-
sis for Sheriff Harrison's suspension. Sheriff Harrison wel-
comes a thorough inquiry regarding complaints of inmates.
Statements by any law enforcement officer suggesting that
Sheriff Harrison will not be returning as Sheriff of Guilf
:County are false and should not be believed. Removing Sher-
iff Harrison's name from the door of his office does not,
change that fact.
LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS should maintain a
high standard of professional conduct. Witnesses have re-
ported they have been harassed, threatened, and intimidated
by one or more officers claiming to be conducting some type
of investigation. As a.witness, you have certain constitutional
rights. You are entitled to be treated In a professional arind
--If any officer threatens to expose a witness to per-
sonal or public embarrassment, that is unprofession-
al and in violation of the witness' rights. .
-If any officer offers financial or other. benefits, re-
gardless of their costs, it is unprofessional and could
produce false testimony.
-If any officer threatens the employment ofany wit-
niess, for any reason, it is unprofessional and in viola-
tion of the witness' rights.
--If any officer demands any witness submit to any
-kind of examifiation claiming such examinatiolrtI .i_,-
prove the witness;is telling the truth (lie detector'
tests, truth serums, or- other false scientific testing),
such demand is unprofessional and in violation of the
witness' rights. "
-If any law enforcement officer, under the pretext of
conducting an' investigation, asks questions regard-
ing the witness' personal life or questions regarding
the witness' family or loved ones, particularly where
such questions.deal with very private and personal x
concerns and are obviously unrelated to such investi-
gation, that 'conduct' is highly unprofessional and
may lead to suspension and discipline of such officer.
IF YOU HAVE BEEN treated in a manner you believe vio-
lates your basic right of privacy and freedom from harass-
ment and intimidation, you should report such conduct to
authorities for appropriate discipline of such officers. All wit-
nesses in any investigation have a right to consult with legal
counsel regarding the necessity to respond to continued in-
When officers phrase questions so. as to intentionally
start unfounded rumors, a fair investigation may thereafter
be. impossible. If you believe that statements made by FDLE
agents are designed to start unfounded rumors, you are en-
tirely within your rights to demand that they show you some
basis for any allegations against any other person.
TO ASSURE FAIRNESS to Sheriff-Harrison, you should
report such unprofessional conduct, immediately. You may
write to the address below with complete assurance of confi-
dentiality; simply say that you wish the matter treated as at-
torney/client privilege. When' whatever is taking place has
been completed, we will assist any witness who has been
mistreated in any way by making his or her complaints
known to federal agencies and to the statewide Grand Jury.
If you wish to speak directly to the statewide prosecutor,
or to any federal agency regarding any matter that you be-
lieve to be in violation of your rights, you cannot be prevent-
ed by anyone from reporting your concerns to a superior fed-
eral or state agency.
You should address your correspondence "Personal and

into Class A (TNT & Dynamite). Class B (large fireworks, cherry
bombs, & M-80 s), and Class C (fountains shooting candles, & bot-

Class C fireworks (the most safe available) account for a lot of'

Local Teams Win Region One in Sunshine State Games
This past weekend,: the St.
Joe0 Tiger Sharks 12-under and
the 16-under basketball team,
sponsored by Gulf Fabricating,
went to Quincy for ,the Region
One Sunshine State basketball
tournament. The 12-under team
defeated Chipley 56-41 in the
.semi-finals, and Sneads 77-58 to
win the championship. The 16-
under team defeated the Quincy
All-Stars 66-57 and then the Tal-
lahassee All-Stars 60-54 to also
win the championship.
All counties in the Panhan-
dle, plus Madison and Taylor
counties, were included in district
one. The 12-under team was led
by the scoring of James Daniels,

in the semi-final win over Chi-
pley. Playing good defense for the

wood, Isaiah Jenkins, Kendrick

versus Sneads, the 12-under's
faced a team with three starters
6' or taller, but the pressure de-
fense of the Tiger Sharks led
them to victory. Travis Jenkins
had five three-pointers, and Sene-
ca Chambers had three three-,,
jointers to lead the..scoring, while;
* James Daniels, Brett Jeffcoat,
and Mosi Quinn did a super job
of rebounding versus the much

ette said, "The effort by these
young men was something to see;
everyone can be really proud of
how hard they played."

ry, Chad Quinn, and Damon
Walker. In the game versus the

Trammell Cited by Counties Drowning Is No. 1 Killer of
For Outstanding Leadership In 1994 Legislative Session Unsupervised Toddlers
V hA i t d Ikit-,, r lhW. i j A ,f.... l d,... ....A .__ "
REP. ROBERT TRAMMELL
State Rep. Robert Trammell has been recog-
nized by the Florida Association of Counties for
his outstanding legislative leadership during
the 1994 Legislative Session.
FAC President Marlene Young, a Polk
County Commissioner, presented Trammell
with a "County Champion's" plaque and
thanked him for his efforts in representing
Young. noted Trammell's efforts as the pri-
mary sponsor of legislation increasing state rev-
enue sharing dollars for Florida's small
counties, including Calhoun, Gadsden, Gulf,
Jackson, and Liberty.
HB 2047, dubbed the "Small County Kick-
er", passed on the last day of the 1994 Legisla-
tive Session and amends the state's funding
mechanism for the Emergency Distribution
Rather than providing a lump sum appro-
priation in the state's annual budget, Tram-
mell's. bill authorizes a percentage distribution.
from the state's sales tax. In,the future, fund-
ing for small counties will increase proportion-
ately with increases in 'sales tax collections.
"Rural counties in north Florida are strug-
gling to provide basic services," Trammell said,
"and I've been working to. find ways to get the
state to recognize this fact."
Enacted in'19.82, the Emergency Distribu-
tion Program provided funding to economically
disadvantaged small counties to supplement
the local government half-cent sales tax.
The Emergency Distribution program has
.not received any Increase in funding since'
1990. Trammel 's. bill will provide increased
funding for srnmll counties on an annual basis.
This fiscal year, the state provided approxi-'
mately $5.3 million for the Emergency Distribu-
tion Program. The next fiscal year beginning on
July 1, 1994, will bring around $6.8 million for'
the program, plus an additional $300,000 is
expected in the'year after.
'This is not a lot of money up front, but it
will make a difference to the counties that need
it," said Trammell, "plus, it provides more assu-
rance for increased funding every year."
Among the' counties which would receive
funding under the plan are'five in the 7th
House District seat, which Trammell repre-
-sents: Calhoun Gadsden, Gulf, Jackson, and
Liberty, which combined will receive approxi-
mately $1, 142, 56.

Rev. Zedoc Baxter is a world

told about his trip to the Rotary
Club last Thursday.

his wife and the other folks in his
During 'the two weeks, they
toured Switzerland, Liechten-
stein. Austria. Italy and France.
They took in all the old buildings,
castles, churches, restaurants,
etc., just like a self-respecting
Yankee tourist is supposed to do.
Zedoc was impressed with
the rail service of "the continent",
saying, "When people travel over
there, they take the train. It gets
you places fast. has good connec-
tions and operates on time. The
train is the way to .go when you
visit "the continent.""
Being an Alabama farm boy,
Zedoc was most taken by the con-
dition of the farms in Europe.
'They were neat anid clean, utiliz-
ing every inch of space (or crops."
Baxter described- the fields of his
home in Alabama, where they left
plum thickets at the end of the
rows for a nice snack before turn-
ing around and plowing in the op-
posite direction. "They plant right
up to the line and there are no
weeds or bushes in sight to clut-
ter up the fields."
Rev. Baxter visited such an-

think kills more young children
before they reach their fifth birth-,
day? It's not bums or motor vehi-
cle crashes. Drowning is the No.
1 toddler killer. In 1992, 78 of
Florida's toddlers-drowned about
half of them in swimming pools.
Most children who drown are
unsupervised. A U.S. Consumer
Product Safety study revealed
that in 76 percent of childhood
drowning cases, the child was un-
der the supervision of a parent or
sibling who had been distracted
by the phone, chores or socializ-
ing. In many instances the care-
taker didn't expect,the child to be
near the pool. As we near Drown-
ing Prevention Awareness Day
(May ), we mustIIILiL riiemember that
children near water need con-
stant supervision-even in the
bathtub or near a mop bucket. If
you own a pool, please isolate it
with an approved four-sided fence
and install a self-latching door.-
These are effective barriers that
make potential dangers a lot less'
Drowning is not just a kid,
problem. While, toddlers repre-1
sented 22 percent of the drown-'.
ing victims in 1992, men age 15
and 39 are at great risk. They
tend to drown in canals, rivers
and other bodies of water when
they overestimate their swimming'
ability, take dares, dive carelessly.

Gov. Lawton Chiles is proposing a tax cut for homeowners if he is re-
elected in November, but more taxes for lawyers, accountants, and busi-'
nesses whose services and profits are now exempt under Florida law.
S, Chiles said in an interview with TV and print media he will seek a
'statewide vote on his proposal for a sweeping tax reform that could come
i 1996 if he is able to get it on the ballot in the form of a constitutional
"A lot of people haven't paid their fair share...I think that means that
we have been taxing some of the wrong people too much," Chiles said.
The. plans, he said, would not Include a state income tax, which is
forbidden under Florida's constitution, and would not raise the amount
of taxes collected "at first", although economists report a wider tax net in
a growing Florida would generate more new money each year.
The strategy would be to sell it as a benefit for education and other
critical state needs, Chiles said.
Only one of Chiles' Republican opponents is advocating new taxes.
He is State Treasurer Tom Gallagher, who is supporting a constitutional
amendment for a penny increase in the sales taxes for prisons and other
crime prevention measures. Jeb Bush, Jim Smith, Ken Connor and An-
der Crenshaw say the state should cut government waste and spending
before seeking new taxes.
Chiles said he would take his plans for widening the tax net to in-
.elude more businesses and services direction to the people, because the
legislaturee has turned down his tax reform proposals in the past.
CROSS BURNING: An old Florida law banning the burning of a cross
on another person's property has been declared illegal by the First Dis-
trict Court of Appeal in Tallahassee. However, according to the judges,
.someone burning a cross on someone's lawn could be prosecuted for as-
sault, criminal mischief, or trespass, and-because of new state crime
hate laws-could get a stiffer sentence.
The 43-year-old Florida law was-struck down because it banned con-
.duct solely because it expressed a message.
FEW BUDGET VETOES: Because it is an election year, Gov. Lawton
Chiles vetoed only $2.8 million worth of the $43.8 million in turkeys in
Sthe 1994 budget, Florida TaxWatch, Inc., officials said last week.
"The governor's veto pen got stuck," TaxWatch President Domonic
"Calabro said after Chiles signed the largest budget ($38.6 billion) in the '
- state's history.
The private research group listed 60 programs it called, "turkeys"
costing $,43.8 million that were slipped into the budget, mostly by power-
ful legislators, without proper public review.
Among those vetoed was a $400,000 item to promote Florida wines
and grapes favored by veteran Sen. W.D. Childers, D-Pensacola, while a
'$500,000 project to renovate the GadsdenpCounty Courthouse in Quincy,
the hometown of Senate President Pat Thomas, was approved.
Chiles' budget director, David Coburn, said it was easy to make a
turkey list but it is difficult to actually.veto such worthwhile things as
crisis stabilization units for children and liver-transplant or Alzheimer's
'We will never know if those programs are meritorious because they
never got a chance to compete with other projects," Calabros said.
Chiles did not punish with his veto-as many observers expected-
Republicans who denied him a health. care reform package in the special
session. Nor did he punish those slipped into the budget by Democrats
who opposed his programs.
The budget includes $330 million for prison space, $10.9 billion in
education, and $237.4 million for juvenile justice projects.
There are more than 121,000 state employees authorized in the bud-
get, up by more than 4,000, mostly in new jobs in corrections.
FREQUENT FLIERS: Gov. (Walkin') Lawton Chiles Is flying more this
election year at state expense to keep himself in the public eye, but he is
being outdone by Education Commissioner Doug Jamerson, who Is try-
ing to win his cabinet seat in the November election.
The state operates a fleet of four aircraft at an annual cost of about
' $2 million. Elected-or in Jamerson's case, appointed-officials who cam-
paign while flying state aircraft are charged about half of the operating
Chiles' air travel on state aircraft is up 26 percent over his travels
last year during the same period. Jamerson-since being appointed by
Chiles in January to take over the post vacated by Betty Castor-has
logged more flights on state aircraft than Chiles and almost as many
miles as the five other Cabinet members combined.
THIS IS HOW WE SEE IT
Gulf County Sheriff Al Harrison said last week he is not guilty of in-
terfering with a state investigation and the publisher of the Port St. Joe
The Star weekly newspaper said Gov. Lawton Chiles owes the community
an apology for suspending him before official charges are made.1
The suspension came a week after one of Harrison's employees-civil
division clerk Linda Sue Richter-who had complained of sexual harass-
;ment was found dead in a ditch along a logging road about 10 miles west
:of Port St. Joe on June 1. A suicide note was found in her car.
According to their official statements, neither Harrison or attorney
Bob Moore knew before Mrs. Richter's death that she was involved in a
sexual harassment investigation begun in March by the Florida Depart-
,inent of)Law Enforcement, according to their official statements. They
,were informed of it, they said, by FDLE, agents after she was found dead.
,, Gov. Chiles said in an executive order that Harrison had "interfered
,with an investigation into allegations pending against him, and, in so do-
'ing, obstructed justice by instructing certain potential witnesses to resist
the efforts of law enforcement investigators to gather information."
Harrison has not been charged with a crime. In fact, Chiles and
:FDLE officials said no such evidence had yet been found.
S"Isn't a sheriff deserving of the same kind of protection we give crimi-
nals?" asked The Star Publisher Wesley- Ramsey. "Nobody-even sher-
Sils-should be removed from their jobs simply to assure an 'unimpeded
!completion of a criminal investigation'...especially when there is nothing
found to substantiate claims made by a party or parties abut some al-
Ramsey said it is "our opinion" Gov. Chiles and the FDLE have over-
stepped their bounds and trampled on the law that everyone is presumed.
innocent until proven guilty...or at least until a reasonable suspicion of
guilt is found.
This old boondocks reporter thinks Ramsey may have a poirit. State
officials in the Tallahassee beltway--both elected and otherwise-get car-
tied away quite often, with their power. A recent example, of course, is
'ov. Lawton Chiles' suspension that turned into the removal of former
.jernando County School Board member Diane Rowden, for doing some-
-thing Gov. Chiles and state lawmakers do legally all the time-lobby each
,Other over the telephone.
Mrs. Rowden just happened to be politically incorrect apparently. Al-
hough the Florida Supreme Court said she could be suspended by the
governor, but not removed for violating Sunshine Laws in discussing
public business over the phone, her suspension became permanent
when the Florida Senate, amidst .heavy lobbying, refused to lift Chiles'
suspension order. The section of the Sunshine Law that she violated, you
see, doesn't apply to state lawmakers, only to elected county officials.
SThey were careful to not say she was being removed, only that they
greed with Chiles' right to suspend. Mrs. Rowden's career on the school
Eoard, of course, was effectively ended.
t' It'll be interesting to see what happens in the Gulf County case.
SMrs. Richter was the wife of Port St. Joe Police Chief Bucky Richter,
who said he believes her death was a suicide, but wouldn't discuss the
investigation of the sheriff. He reported her death to the FDLE shortly af-
ter the body was found.
Investigators say Mrs. Richter's car was found in the ditch some dis-
tance from her body. Initial reports indicated she drowned.

June and 'July are months
when grass is growing at its full
potential. Mowing is not only a
chore but a necessary mainte-
nance practice. To comply with
our conservation effort to redude
the number of bagged clippings
going to landfills by letting grass
clippings lay in place, it may be
necessary to mow as frequently
as every five (5) days. The smaller
the clippings, the more easily
they filter.back onto the lawn and
become unnoticeable. These are
also months to watch for pests.
When an area in the lawn be-
gins to turn yellow, react! Don't
just ignore it! Usually, the prob-
lem is either one of an insect or a
disease. A simple diagnostic test
is to mix two (2) tablespoons of
any soap into two (2) gallons of
water (but don't mix so vigorously
as to form suds) and then pour
this over two (2) square feet of
lawn right at the edge of where
yellow turns to green. Wait a few
minutes. Insects are involved
with the problem, they'll soon
climb to the top of the grass to
get away from the soap. Chinch
bugs, mole crickets, and qaterpil-
lars are the pests for which to
look. If any of those come up,
treat with an insecticide. Check.
with local garden centers or your
County Extension Service for
what they have that would work
(Diazinon and Dursbani are com-
monly used). If no insect is ob-
served, the yellowing is due to
something else and an Insecticide
will not help. It could be a bur
from using a week .killer or a
problem with water (too much or
too little) but to play it safe, spray
for diseases. Daconll is a com-
monly used fungicide that con-
trols a large number of diseases
When spraying with an insec-
ticide or fungicide, don't treat the,
whole yard! Help reduce needless
chemical application to our envi-
ronment. Treat only the affected
area and a ten foot border around
SRoy Lee Carter
it. Mow a day or two before treat-
ing and don't wash the product in
unless label directions tell you to
do so. A second treatment in 10-
14 days is required for most prod-
With summer in full swing,
many, ask when is the next ferti-'
lizer application. In an effort to
reduce the amount of chemical
applied, current recommenda-
tions are to either use low analy-
sis fertilizers (such as 10-10-10
or 15-0-1.5 at low rates) or do not
fertilize at all in the summer.
Studies have shown that grasses
such as St. Augustine and bahia
can, go.the entire summer with no
fertilizer if clippings are allowed
to fall back to, continue providing
slow release nutrition to the
,.grass. It has also been demon-
strated by eliminating those high
analysis fertilizers in the sum-
mer, which produce a "bright
green" appearance-pests, such
as grey leaf spot, chinch bugs,
and lawn 'caterpillars can be re-
Male crickets have laid their
eggs now and those eggs will soon

apply a granular application of a
product called oftanol. Water it in
Immediately (within a half hour of
applying), and this should stay in
the soil for the next 2-3 months,
killing all young crickets as they-'
hatch. Note that in the past this
treatment was recommended for

hatch-out cycles for this area are
a little later than once thought. It
Is, therefore, suggested that most-
effective application periods for

June through mid-July. Oftanol
Is only used once a year for mole
cricket control, since it gives very
little control to large crickets and
works best on those that have
only recently hatched. :

"Killer King" Wounds with Laughter
I was in St. Joe for a few days recently. A tooth that I had lost a
filling from began to hurt unbearable during the visit. I couldn't enjoy
any of Mama's cooking because of the pain. That Nolan Ryan medicine
called 'dvil" just was not getting the job done. So I called Dr. Robert
King, .. -ir old family dentist. He graciously worked me in and patched
me up good enough to stop the pain and enjoy a decent meal before
Iong before the advent of nitrous oxide, Robert King has been ad-
ministering laughing gas in St. Joe. My brother and I always teased
each other with the mimicked sound of Dr. King's drill. Anyone who
"has ever been to a, dentist knows that sound and cringes when they
Shear it. We nicknamed Dr. King "Killer King". Just before every visit,
',the shrill buzz of "Killer's" drill could be heard around the house.
When you go to Dr. King's office, you never know what you might

get besides a filling. I still remember the fancy toy rifigs he gave when I
was young. I don't remember much_ pain, but I do know I left "Killer's"
office more than once with pain in ,my side from laughing at the good
doctor's homespun humor. You neyer knew what was on the agenda
for the day. Politics, philosophy, religion, sports and music (Doc has
been known to sing a few bars between chairs), all analyzed with the
sharp wit of the good doctor's hilarious perspective. On my recent vis-
it, geography was the topic of the day. Before I left; we had maps out
looking over the coastal contours between St. Joe and Mobile. King re-
marked, "I ought to be a geography teacher."' ,
Dr. Robert King is a man of learning. As I left his office, I noticed a
certificate on his walls from some recent continuing education course
in dentistry. Dr. King knows that 'continuing education is the only
kind of education. Others are around now, but there was a time not
too long ago, you had to drive to Panama City to get dental work done.
I have noticed something about small town doctors and dentists: peo-
ple either swear by them or swear at them (sometimes both). This writ-
er happens to swear by the guy we named "Killer".
After my geography lesson, I asked, "Doc, how much do I owe
you?" He said, "Nothing! Tell your mama to bring me something good
to eat." That's not the first time he has said something like that to me.
And I bet if the truth were told, during the years the paper mill did not
run much, he has said it to many others.
Dr. Robert King has wounded me .with more laughter than any-
thing else. I'm sure I'm not alone. Thanks, Doc, for making it stop
hurting and for taking this old boy on a nostalgic stroll down memory
Five days before the vote,
President Clinton notified Con-
gress. that continuing draft regis-
tration and providing funding to
operate the Selective Service Sys-
tem is "essential to our national
security". In letters to the leader-;
ship of the House and Senate on
May 18, the President based his
decision on a recently completed
:review of the program by a Na'-
'tional Security Council working
group. He concluded that the Se-
lectivei Sen'ice System and peace-
time registration must be re-
tained, as a prudent military'
preparedness measure in an un-
certain world, as a link between
American society and the volun-
teer military, and as a symbol of
Although there has been no
need to draft men for military ser-
vice during the past 21 years, the
nation has maintained the capa-
illity to reinstate a draft in a ma-
jor crisis. Since July 1980. draft.,
registration has been an obliga-
tion of virtually every man, ages
18 through 25;. Federal law re-
quires that every man must regis-
ter within 30 days of his 18th
birthday. Each man completes a
short form to provide Selective
Service with his name, date of
birth, address, phone number
ad Social Security number. Reg-
istration forms are available at
any post office. Most men also re-
ceive a registration reminder in
the mail a few months before
reaching age 18, and they may
use it to register by return mail.
The Selective Service System has
a telephone line dedicated to an-
swering questions' about registra-
Men who don't register are in
violation of federal law. Non-
registrants can be prosecuted,
and they are ineligible for federal
student financial aid, most feder-
al jobs, and job training. The law
applies to male Immigrant aliens,
18 through 25 years old, as well
as male citizens.
