A Gulf County Road Department employee is fixing potholes.

Santa Visits Early
A young lad, In writing his letter to Santa which was pub-
lished in this week's edition of The Star, said he wanted his road
graded for Christmas. The young man, Dusty Alford, lives at Ho-
ward Creek, an area which experienced substantial road damage
during the several tropical storms which the area was inundated
with during the summer of 1994.
The letter, faxed to the Gulf County Road Department by San-
ta, received an immediate response to the work order issued by
Santa. On.Tuesday of this week, the Road Department, complete
with Santa's elves hats. arrived on hand to patch the potholes on
the dirt road in question.
Merry Christmas. Dusty, and our hope is that everyone can
have their Christmas wishes answered. Dusty's letter to Santa is on
page 7 of the third section of this edition.


Trial on 10 Counts

The saga continues and the"
plot thickens in the County Com-
mission's dealings with Interim
Sheriff Jamies Coats and the
pending appointment from Gov-
ernor Lawton Chiles of a new in-
terim sheriff since an. indictment
has been lodged against suspend-
ed Gulf County Sheriff Al Harri-
The Board decided In its reg- .
ular scheduled meeting December
13, to draft a resolution, In a spe-
cial meeting called for last Thurs-
day. seeking to have the Governor
remove Interim Sheriff James
Coats and the appointment of a
local replacement. The motion
passed on a 4-1 vote, with Com-
missioner Nathan Peters, Jr. cast-
ing the only dissenting vote.
'When the special meeting
was held on Thursday, December
15, Harrison was in Pensacola
Federal Court being processed on
a 10-count Indictment against
him. The point of the meeting be-
came moot when Coats informed f

the Board that he had written his
letter of resignation to the govern-
or, in which he had asked the
governor for a transition period,
in order to clear out some things
he was in the middle of.
During the meeting Chair-i
man Hammond chastised Coats
for his handling of several mat-'
ters including the lack-of disci-
pline of one of his officers who
had allegedly been observed buy-
ing alcoholic beverages while on
duty and driving a county vehicle.
Two local people. Rusty Burrows
and Steve Moore, spoke out say-
ing they had observed the officer
buying and drinking alcohol while
on duty.
The Commission decided to
drop the matter after Coats re-
vealed his intentions.
Nathan Peters and Billy Tray-
lor called for a second special
meeting Tuesday. December 20,
In which Traylor presented to the
Board a letter to the governor in
support of retaining Interim Sher-

Iff Coats until the questions sur-
rounding Sheriff Al Harrison have
been resolved. The letter stated,
"Mr. Coats had proven that he is
a very capable administrator and
has directed the Gulf County

Sheriffs Department during some
extremely tough times over the
past six months."
Traylor said, "It's my under-
standing that in the past few
weeks there has been a big push
for Mayor Frank Pate (mayor of
Port St. Joe) to be the next inter-
im sheriff and I personally feel
like this would not be to the ben-
efit of the county."
Commissioner Warren Yeager
spoke up saying he could not
support the letter because he had
already made a commitment to
support another local person,
Raymond Lawrence, for the ap-
pointment and that he felt that
the county needed a local person
leading the department.
Interim Sheriff Coats spoke
up stating that maybe he could
save everyone a lot of time telling
the commission that he was una-
ble to, nor did he want to contin-
ue as interim sheriff, for personal
reasons and because of other ob-

This Thing Which

Has Come to.Pass

And it came to pass in those days, that there
went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all
the world should be taxed. (And this taxing was
first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)
And all went to be taxed, everyone into -his own
city. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of
the city of Nazareth, into Judea, unto the city of
David; which is called Bethlehem (because he was.
of the house and lineage of David) to be taxed
with Mary his espoused wife, being great with
And so it was, that, while they were there, the
days were accomplished that she should be deliv-
ered. And she brought forth her firstborn son, and
wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him
in a manger; because there was no room for them
in the inn .
And there were in the same country shepherds
abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock
by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon
them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about
them; and they were.sore afraid.
And the angel said unto them,; Fear not; for be-
hold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which
shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day
in the city of David, a Saviour, which is Christ the,
Lord. And this shall be .a sign unto you; Ye shall.
find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes and
lying in a manger.
And suddenly there was with the angel a mul-
titude of the heavenly host praising God and say-
ing, Glory to God'in the highest, and on earth
peace, good will to men.
And it came to pass as the angels were gone
away from them into heaven, the shepherds said
one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethle-
hem, and see this 'thing which has come to pass,
which the Lord hath made known to us.
And they came with haste, and found Mary,
and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger. And
when they had seen it, they made known abroad
the saying which was told them concerning this. .
child. And all they that heard it wondered at those,
things which were told them by the shepherds.
But Mary kept all these things, and pondered,
them in her heart. And the shepherds returned,'
glorifying and praising God for all the things that
they had heard and seen, as it was told 'unto


L Hunker Down with Kes

The Chicken or the Egg?

"I don't really understand this
Christmas phenomenon." Ricky
Gene leaned back in his chair.
"Allow me to enlighten you,
sir." Hollis was whispering so
Mrs. Ingram wouldn't have a con-
niption fit, but he still accented
the word "enlighten" as Ricky
Gene had "phenomenon". We'd,
just come from freshman English
with Miss Polly. They were sar-
castically practicing some new,
words she'd used about this poet
with a bad foot named Byron.
'You. give a gift, you get a gift,"
Hollis continued, "the trick is to,
get a gift better than you "

'That's not what I'm talking
about you ninny," Ricky rocked
forward, "I was referring to the
happy holiday, special feeling
that seems to engulf everyone at
this time -" "
'Yeah, right," Yogi joined in,
"I reckon Miss Haskell was Just
awash In holiday cheer when she
made out her test]" We all had Al-
gebra second period.. And:., this
morning's exam was so hard I
didn't even understand half the'
'There are exceptions to every
rule." Ricky Gene wasn't even go-
ing to argue the point.
"Listen, that good cheer,
warm glow bunk Is Just a front.
Deep down people want the gifts."
"Hollis. you're thinking like a
' two year old!"
'Tell you what, then. You give
me all your presents. I'll an-

nounce how your deep generosity
has made me a believer this
"If you boys can't find any-
thing to do," Miss Ingram was
peering over her glasses, "I'll find
something for you."''
I hated having study hall

over. There wasn't anything' to do
except get a head start on tomor-
row's work-aw, c'mon, we're in.
the ninth grade here. Of course,
we did have some crazy discus-
: sons. If Miss Ingram hadn't 'a
hovered around so close we could
'a solved half the world's -
"Miss Ingram, would you
please tell Hollis there's more to
Christmas that just hauling in
the loot" We liked to have went
through the floor. Ricky had
brought in an out-sider.
i 7 "Well boys, the 'loot' is impor-

tant, but it Is not the main theme
of the season. You have to get
much deeper than that-to the
baby Jesus. You have to under-
stand what a wonderful gift He
truly was-and is. Wheri you re-
flect on Him, and give and receive
presents in the spirit in which He
came-then you're getting the
Idea. Christmas will take on a
wonderful meaning. I'm glad to
see you boys are pondering on
some deep things here-but do
hold It down."
.Ricky Gene was grinning like
a possum going into an unguard-
ed hen house.
"Grown ,up answer," Hollis
barely let her get out of ear shot,
"that's a grown-up answer! It
don't mean a thing!"
"I think she's probably right."
It was the first time I'd spoken.
"Kes, ,let me ask you some-
thing. You rather have that

He might'a had me here. The cor-

ents and I sure as heck wasn't

the right 'thing and think the
right thoughts until it gets down
to something you really want ...

thinks," Yogi and I planned on
hunting together, "if I get a shot

will abound in my little old
Yogi might'a said something
profound but we were having a
little trouble working it out.
"Maybe," Ricky Gene paused
before going on, "It's the order in
which we do which."
I thought of my folks. If cot-
ton had been up and hog prices
held, my folks were happy at
Christmas. If the bottom fell out
of cotton and hogs were down
where they usually were, my folks
were happy at Christmas. And I'll
tell you something-they got less
than Leon, David and me EVERY
year. And they NEVER seemed to
be disappointed.
"If the happy Holiday Christ is
born spirit is so important and
the presents are not," Hollis
wasn't going to give up, "then
how come this warm glow doesn't
last all year 'round?"
"People," Ricky never hesitat-
ed, "have very short memories."
The bell rang..
We never 'finished the discus-
sion on the loot versus the
Christmas phenomenon. I think if
we'd a'had about fifteen more
minutes we would a'figured it all

I Did'tDo t on Purpose, butI Gotthe Credit Anyhow!

Christmas gift, and it isn't Christ-
mas yet.
You know how you some-
times just stumble Into a goodM
thing? Well, I stumbled into a
good thing.
My wife was born in Decem-
ber. December 14, to be exact.
Then, I have a daughter whose
birthday is in December also.
Carol, the last, [thank. God there
was no more like her] was born
on December 7. Her birthday is
fitting to her personality. The war
to save the world started, on De-
cember 7, 1941, at a place called
Pparl Harbor.
Carol was born on that day
and it has been a constant adven-
ture ever since. She hasn't exact-
ly started a war in her life, but
she has taught us all to remain'
on guard constantly, for fear of
what might happen. Carol keeps
us all loose. She has adopted that
purpose in her life.




I originally planned to tell you
about; my extraordinary stroke of
good fortune which I consider my
first Christmas gift.
As I told you, December 14 is
Frenchie's birthday. Nobody
'should be allowed to have a birth-
day or anniversary during the
month of December. If they go
ahead and do it they should not
expect to receive a gift that close
-to Christmas.
Frenchie went ahead and had
her birthday on December 14 in
spite of the consequences she
would suffer. She took the possi-

ability of the fact she wouldn't re-
ceive a gift under consideration
and let me know, without verbal-
izing the situation, that I had bet-'
ter not Ignore such an important
day in history.
You know how women are.
They have their ways of making a
point without making a sound, -I
got the point without Frenchie
having to express verbally, to me,
"It's my birthday and I expect a
gift" .

EVERY YEAR I remember hin
time to get her a dozen roses. She
loves flowers, so I was in good

graces when I got her roses and it
was a gift which was easy to se-
lect. With roses, I always knew it
was just the perfect gift for her.
There was no wracking
what's left of my brain. One size
fits all. No matter what color ros-
es the florist had In stock, they,
were always the right color. I had
'it made, so far as the gift item se-
lection was concerned. They were
just what she wanted! I was king
around the house for several days
when I would spring for a dozen
roses for Frenchie on her birth-

was talking about.

after a hard day at the office,.
Frenchie said, "Let's go out to

Well, after six weeks of let-

go as I could be!
'I played it cool, though.
Should I abandon my diet regi-

worth a platter of old, greasy fried

A- -Christmas Wish
SThe year 1994 has been extremely hard for some folks in our
fonimunity. People have lost their jobs, others have lost loved ones,
and still others have lost their good health.
This year hasn't been an easy row to hoe for the Campbells, el-
ther. But, considering some of our friends and neighbors, our life in
i994 has been as easy as taking candy from a baby. We have much
S"to be thankful for.
It's human nature, I guess, to look at the grass on the other
side of the fence and think that it's greener than that in our yard.
Sometimes I have to force myself to look across the fence where the
grass is brown and dead and say to myself, "But for the grace of
God, it would be me instead of him."
So, this Christmas article is dedicated to those ofyou who haye
experienced adversity in your lives during the year, 1994. My
Christmas wish is for you, and I hope the Spirit of Christmas will.
permeate the whole of your soul and that of your family. May you
reach deep into the bag of gifts and find that consoling,, comfort:
that should be prevalent during this time of year.
SEach year at this time I am reminded of my favorite Christmas
stoiy. It is the story of Conrad and his Special Christhmas guest.
Conrad's Christmas wish was that God would visit him in his hum-
ble home. He prayed for that and God told him he would visit him.
that Christmas.
Conrad arose early that Christmas "morning. He cleaned his
house and prepared a warm fire. He also cooked a delicious meal in
preparation for his special Christmas guest. And then he waited.
Soon he heard a noise outside his door. He rushed to the door
and opened it but was dismayed to find an old woman, cold and
lost, shivering In the snow.
Although he was disappointed, he brought her in and gave her
some warm soup and let her warm by his fire and when she was re-
vived, he took her home.
He rushed back to his home and waited. Sometime later he
heard a knock on his aoor and thought, "Surely that is the Lord!"
But when he opened his door he found a beggar, cold and hungry.
He was disappointed, but he brought him in. fed and warmed him
and soon the beggar was on his way.
Still later. Conrad heard another noise outside his humble
house. He opened his door and found a little child, cold and lost,
crying in the snow. As before, he brought the child in, gave him a
warm bowl of soup and took him home.
When Conrad returned home the hour was late and he knew
that his special guest was not coming. He prepared for bed and be-
fore he lay down he prayed, saying. "God, you promised me you
would come visit me this Christmas. Why did you not keep your
Then a voice came, saying. "I did keep my promise, Conrad. I
was the woman, cold and lost. I was the beggar you invited in and
fed and I was the child you brought in and fed and took home. I
was proud to be your Christmas Guest!"
May the Spirit of Christmas visit you this Christmas. That is
my Christmas wish for you!

Government panel gives chiropractors a crack at back pain.

Reprint fromKnight-Ridder News-!
papers, by Delthia Ricks
On Thursday, a 23-member fed-
eral panel led by an orthopedic
surgeon issued back-care guide-,
lines that are already sparking con- :
troversy but validate what chiro-'
practors have said all along: spinal,
manipulation works. :,,
The panel of experts is advising
people with sudden, sharp back
pain to:
Spend no more than two to three.
' days in bed.



* Take over-the-counter painkillers
* Start moderate exercise as soon
as possible.
* If in need of professional help,
see a health-care professional who
performs spinal manipulation.
The guidelines, from the U. S.
Agency for Health Care Policy and
Research, focus on the sharp, acute
back pain that afflicts an estimated
8 million Americans and costs the
nation about $20 billion annually,
according to 1990 figures.
The federal panel of experts, led

by Dr. Stanley J. Bigos, professor of
orthopedic surgery at the Universi-
. ty of Washington in Seattle, re-
viewed more than 3,900 studies to
prepare the new back-care guide-
"The real problem with back-
ache is not the pain but the impact
of being limited by the pain, which
can increase the possibility of long-
term disability," Bigos said.
Surgery helps only one in 100
people with acute low-back prob-
lems, he said, and there is no scien-

tific data supporting the use of po-
tent steroid medications.
Rather than high-tech diagnos-
tics and therapies the panel recom-
mended applying an ice pack to
the painful area for five or 10 min-
utes. That should provide relief
within the first' 48 hours. If not, a
hot shower or heating pad may
work. If those fail, spinal manipu-
lation probably is the best profes-
sional treatment, the new guide-
lines state.

Farm Facts
Florida is the nation's No. 1
producer of fresh cucumbers, ac-

plant explorers have never been
able to discover a wild prototype.
Reliable records indicate they
were used as a food in ancient
Egypt, and were popular with the

Coach Eppinette. "It promises to

If you have missing teeth
that should be replaced and
are concerned about costs,
you may opt for the partial
denture. This is the most eco-
nomical way' to meet the
need to protect your natural
teeth, as well. as your ap-
pearance. Missing teeth not
only cause the adjacent
teeth to drift, making them
more vulnerable to decay,
but they also create gaps in
your mouth that may cause
cheeks to sag,' as well, as
mouth and cheek wrinkles.
This is a gradual process, but
the sooner you replace miss-
ing teeth the better for your
appearance, as well as your
dental health. When you opt
for a partial denture, the fee
is usually based on the whole




appliance and not the num-
ber of teeth on it.
A partial,denture is a re-
movable appliance. You
can slip it easily in or out of
your mouth. It is made with
metal clasps that attach to
the nearest and strongest
natural teeth on either side.
It serves a very important
need by filling the gaps
caused by missing teeth. Al-
,though-the removable par-
tial is used primarily to re-
place back teeth, it can also
be used to replace front

PO3C Byrd]

Six Month D

Navy Petty Officer 3rd Class
Ervin H. Byrd, son of Evalina B.
Middleton,of Porit St. Joe, recently
returned from a, six-month de-
ployment to the Mediterranean
Sea and Indian Ocean with the
amphibious assault ship USS
Guam. the lead ship of the USS
Guam Amphibious Ready Group
Byrd was one of 4,000 ma-
rines and sailors who completed.
the 30,.000 mile voyage which in-
cluded duty off Bosnia-
Herzegovina in the Adriatic Sea,
and being on stand-by off the
eastern tip of Africa. After travel-
Ing from the Mediterranean Sea
through the Suez Canal and Red
Sea Into the Indian Ocean, Byrd
spent more than a month off the
coast of Somalia. where the Navy-
Marine Corps team stood ready to
protect and relocate American cit-
izens if necessary. The Virginia-
based USS Guam traveled with
USS Tortuga. USS Austin, USS
Harlan County and the 26th Ma-
rine Expeditionary Unit.
Byrd began the deployment
by participating in the 50th anni-
versary of D-Day with visits to
England and France. During the
D-Day commemoration, USS
Guam helped support the visit of
President Bill Clinton and numer-
ous other government and mill-
tary officials as well as thousands
of World War II veterans.

armed forces," Peterson said. "I
recognize the need to streamline
our military, however, my highest
priority is protecting the ability of
our fighting men and Women to
defend our shores and preserve
our standing as the most power-
ful, nation in the world."
Peterson's experience as a
small businessman also gives
him a unique perspective, of the
concerns of America's small busi-
ness sector.
"Small businesses account
for the vast majority of. jobs in
this country, and I will work to
ensure that an economic eniron-
ment exists that results in a
strong and creative small busi-
ness community," Peterson said.

Returns from

and participating in both -,real
world operations and amphibious
landing exercises with other na-
tions, Byrd also visited Greece, Is-
real, Italy, Kenya. Spain arid Tur-
*. key. ,' '
Byrd's Involvement in the de-
ployment is an example of how
the Navy-Marine Corps team is
designed to operate overseas and
respond quickly when needed.,
Whether delivering humanitarian
assistance, cargo, or troops from
the sea, these highly-trained na-
val forces provide a unique crisis-
response option, which can be
withdrawn quickly when no long-
er needed.

"Almost Shot by a Shotgun"
by Austin Horton
Once upon a time, I went to
the North Pole. When. I got there,
I had to help Santa's elves build
things for everybody. We couldn't
go to bed. We had to stay up all
night long and we 'had to deliver
toys and stuff. ,
When we went real fast, I fell
out of the sleigh and Old Farmer
John stepped out of his house
with a 4-10 shotgun and thought
I was a clay target and tried to
shoot me. Instead he shot'the
sleigh on accident. Then Santa
fell through the hole and' Old
Farmer John thought Santa
Claus was a bigger clay target, so
he tried to shoot Santa, but he
missed again and shot the rope
that held the reindeer together
and the reindeer kept on flying
and one of their antlers hit the
moon and poked a hole in it and
caused it to blow more holes in
the moon.
So if you ever go to the moon,
look for holes in it. ..... The End.
Merry Christmas and Happy
New Year!

. and attired in his night clothes
swung wide the heavy door .
Irately informing them that all the
rooms were taken. The humble
carpenter quietly explained that
his wife was heavy with child and
about to give birth but the
innkeeper still shook his head
"No" adamantly insisting that
he had no room for them. Desper-
ate and saddened, the weary car-
penter turned to go. Then the
light from the innkeepers lantern
cast its soft glow upon the don-,
key and the beautiful young girl

in distress. And when he saw her:
he took pity and offered the only
thing he had a stable a
cave in the hillside. The carpenter
almost cried he was so grateful .
. and thanked the innkeeper
many times over.
As they made their way
through the narrow winding
streets and neared the stable the
donkey brayed. Sensing the dis-
comfort and urgency of the one
upon his back he was happy ..
for now they could all rest .
and he might even nibble upon a
bit of sweet straw.
The weary carpenter lifted his
young wife from the donkey and
laid her on a bed of hay. He was .
grateful for the soft fragrant hay.
Had there been room at the inn .
his sweet young wife would
have had only the hard floor to lie
upon. He looked about the stable.
The oxen and the ass with their
body heat and warm breath had
made it comfortably warm. The
inn would have been cold ... bit-
terly cold with not even a fire
place to warm them. They would
have had to have shared a room
with many people all strang-
Sers. Certainly not a fit place for a
woman in labor.. nor one for a
baby to have been brought into -
the world. Often vagabonds ..,
ne'er-do-wells.. ., thieves and cut
throats bedded down at the inn.
They may have been assaulted
and what little they had stolen.
Here in this warm comfortable
stable they were safe. The carpen-
ter smiled and falling on his
knees took his young wife's hand
and thanked God for guiding
them to such a place.
The hours passed and the
great light paused in the night
sky just above the stable Its
golden light shining down from
the heavens gleaming and
glistening bathing the entire
stable in light.
Heavenly creatures appeared
to the shepherds on the hillsides
announcing the birth of a baby
being born that night which-was
Christ the Lord.
The great grey wolf howled
.and paced in his dark den in Im-
patient expectation. The red-
tailed hawk plummeted to the
earth In anxious anticipation. The
black faced sheep bleated in great
exaltation . and a Child
was born.
They wrapped the infant in
swaddling clothes and they
laid Him In a manger.
A lennet flew from a golden
larch and perched above the
manger and sang a lilting lullaby.
The Baby smiled. A soft wind
whistled through the tops of the
olive and cedar that embraced the
stable. bending their branches
in beneficent benediction. The

shepherds came to adore Him.
The wise men brought their gold-
en gifts. The heavens opened ...
and a multitude of angels in
all their magnificence choirs
upon choirs of Cherubim and
Seraphim. Thrones and Domi-
nations... Principalities and Do-
minions poured out their
voices in heavenly harmony.
"Glory to God" -they sang.
"Glory to God in the highest.
Peace on earth, good will towards

Food Safety Tips
i Soups and stews prepared
in advance should be cooled
quickly. If you prepare soups
and stews in advance. refrigerate
them as soon as possible, but
definitely within two hours of
cooking. It's best to divide them
into small shallow containers.
which speeds up the cooling pro-
cess and reduces the likelihood of
food contamination. When serve
ing them, reheat them to a rolling
boil. In any case, it's best not to
keep leftover soups and stews
more than four days, even if
they've been refrigerated.
Preheat thermos containers
to help keep soups and stews
hot. Many home-packed lunches
Include n a thermos of soup or
stew that tastes best when servn'ed
piping hot. Using boiling water to
rinse a thermos designed for hot
foods prior to adding the hot food
will extend its heat-keeping po-
tenUal and keep the soup hot.'
longer. Bring the soup to a slow
boll, pour it Immediately into the
preheated thermos, and cap the
container at once.

Now the New Buzz Word Is


Gov. Lawton Chiles, riding high after defeating Jeb Bush to push his
undefeated political record to 36 years, asked reporters at a press confer-
ence last week to help him to not become a lame-duck governor early-on
in his last term.
He was asking the right group because most Florida daily newspa-
,pers supported him editorially and the capitol press corps gave him a' lot
more than an even break in this successful campaign that allowedthim to
be one of the few Democratic governors to survive the national "throw the
rascals out" trend.
A couple of keys .to hi,.plans appeared at the conference. .He and Lt.
SGov. Buddy MacKay mentioned "right-sizing," not .down-sizing" govern-
meit as one of their goals. The difference in word selection is pertinent if
you-recall Chiles' big raises for his own staff after he had promised down-
sizing In his first race for governor. Chiles Ignored crime-the big issue in
the campaign-in his summation of his plans for his last term, although
MacKay, wanting to be heir apparent, said "it goes without saying we're
going to.continue to focus on the crime,rate."
SOne positive stance taken was a pledge of allegiance to "neighbor-
hood" solutions for problems, instead of mandates (mostly unfunded)
from on high. You might even construe that to mean that in the he-
'coon's last four years.of power he might decide to keep government off
the backs and out of the pockets of the people for a change-probably
Chiles' early actions next year will probably determine whether he is
to become a lame duck right soon or not He can take the advice of some
of the conservative Democrats in the House and Senate and really
change the party's direction back to the mainstream or he can have grid-
Politically, I guess, gridlock would give Democrats a weapon to use
against Republicans in the next electio)i' but it would be much worse for
the hopes and aspirations of the peopleY One thing the Guv. can count
on. It's not going to be the way it was before. The free-spending, free-
wheeling big government movement is over. A Republican Florida Senate
and a house with only a six vote difference that can be taken over by a
coalition of conservatives is not going to stand for it.
The test of the pudding is probably going to be whether Chiles de-
cides to go for another tax increase-which he'll call reform. He has, pro-
posed to take it to the people in a constitutional amendment He's per-
haps coon-cunning enough to slip that one over with the help of.big city
newspapers, but it could finish the Democratic party in Florida. .
INTERESTING YEAR COMING: Yes. 1995 is going to be an interest-
Ing Legislative year. The speculation is that Gov. Chiles will appoint a
new Secretary of Corrections before Harry Singletary goes before the now
Republican Florida Senate for confirmation where he is in trouble with
some powerful senators. The surprise appointment could be Doug Ja-
merson, the unsuccessful black candidate for the Education- Commis-
sioner post on the Florida Cabinet Jamerson also has a shot at the Sec-
retary of Labor post being vacated by the resignation of Shirley Gooding.
Jamerson is well-liked ty some conservative Democrats and Republi-
cans as an independent "his own man" Democrat with some sizeable
skills in legislative matters. A former representative from SL Petersburg,
he also once taught a criminal justice course. Two of his best buddies up
here In the beltway are lobbyists Gene Hodges, former Representative
from Cedar Key, and Jim Tlllman, a former rep. from St. Petersburg, both
pick-up truck type country boys.
Other appointees on shaky Senate ground are: Lottery Chief Marcia
Mann for her mini-scandal of Jack-pot Inflation: H.R.S. Secretary Jim
Towey for discarding valuable employees while not Improving the agency;
and Business Regulation Sec. George Stuart because of shady ethics.
Gulf Cotinty Sheriff Al Harrison was Indicted last week by a federal
grand jury on 10 counts of coercing five women Jail Inmates into sexual
acts with him, but he still hasn't been charged with the reason Gov. Law-
ton Chiles used to suspend him from office in June-interfering with the
A Pensacola grand Jury issued the indictments Nov. 16, but they
were sealed until last week when Harrison-accompanied by his wife
Bonnie-was arraigned and released without bond pending trial Jan. 23
In Panama City.
"I have never touched any of these people, and they know I have nev-
er touched any of them." Harrison said. His wife said: "I know he Is Inno-
- cenh "-..- -. .... ..- --..
Harrison, 52, said he suffered the loss of his Job before charges were
brought against him or he was convicted of any wrong-doing. 'Where is
the presumption of innocent until found guilty we're supposed to get." he
The indictments do not mention any complaints of sexual harass-
ment by former employees in his office, including one who committed
suicide after telling investigators that Harrison made sexual demands of




by Jack Harper

her. '
Live Oak State Attorney Jerry ,Blair had recommended trial under
federal civil rights laws because it is easier to prove coercion under feder-
al laws than sexual battery or assault under state laws: He said it isn't
likely the state will press any more"charges if Harrisori Is found guilty in
federal court.
The case will draw naUonal attention for it is the first that the names
of the women making the charges are made available to the news media
following a ruling of the Florida Supreme Court.
A Panama City newspaper published the women's names and a Pan-
handle television station showed their pictures on a news program. Tim
Moore, director of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. said it
was Irresponsible because it's difficult to get women to testify in such
cases, even when they don't have a criminal record. Most news media do
not use the names of victims in sexual assault cases.
'WAIT AND SEE': Five disgruntled House Democrats who have
enough votes to give a coalition with Republicans a victory in any floor
battle have adopted a "wait and see mode" on their request that Speaker
Peter Wallace reconsider his firing of 17 veteran committee staffers two
weeks ago.
'We asked him to take anothertlook at those staffers and his actions
to see if they really had to be fired and if there were good reasons to do ,
It." said Rep. Kelley Smith. D-Palatka. 'We also asked him to at least give
them severance pay and some real help in finding jobs."
Wallace fired the committee staffers-some of them witli more than
20 years experience-without contacting the chairmen.
The five representatives who met with Wallace, D-St. Petersburg, last
week were Smith; Dean Saunders, D-Lackland; Bob Trammell. D-
Marianna: Allen Boyd. D-Monticello: and Everett A. Kelly. D-Tavares.
'We're in a wait-and-see mode now. He said he would look at it again
and I believe he will." Smith said. "He said he was trying to make the
committees more efficient and streamlined for his programs. I believe he
wanted to get some of his own people -in the jobs too."
There is only a six vote majority of Democrats in the House after the
November elections. It would take only four votes from conservative Dem-
ocrats to settle any Issue in the House backed solidly by Republicans.
SENATE TRIMS TOO: Republlcan Senate President Jim Scott fired
15 committee staffers and eliminated 21 positions in an 18 percent staff
cutback before Republicans take over with a majority for the first time in
120 years. Unlike House Speaker Peter Wallace's firing of 17 committee
staffers with no notice and orders t1 vacate at the end of the next day.
Scott Is allowing the workers to remain on the job until the end of Janu-
ary. "It isn't their fault that the Senate is reorganizing and restructuring."
Scott said. I
LEWIS'S SPOILS SYSTEM: Outgoing Comptroller Gerald Lewis Is
pushing a $98 million bond issue before he leaves office that will pay
hundreds of thousands of dollars In fees to companies represented by his
political supporters. They were not ,the low bidders. Lewis violated his
own rules to protect the public In plking them.
The money is to buy office equipment such as computers and copiers
that state agencies and communitycolleges will need in the next three
"A bond Issue that can wait. .',should be done by ofclals who can
be held accountable to the voters," Tax Watch President Dominic Calabro
told the Florida T7mes Union, Comptroller-elect Bob Milligan said he'd
look Into the transaction after he is sworn in January 3.
Lewis awarded lead roles in marketing the bonds on December 2 to
Bear. Stearns & Co., represented by his long-time friend and former state
Treasurer Bill Gunter, Paine-Webbr., represented by lobbyist James Ea-
ton, was chosen co-manager. Bot. 'Gunter and Eaton have been fund-
raisers in Lewis's political 'campaigns. Republicans are organizing to
block the bond Issue. -" .*"
TOUGH TEST, EASIER GRADE: The cabinet has approved tougher
tests for Florida students to graduate from high school. Exams were giv-
en In October, raising standards and making it more difficult to get a
graduation diploma. But last week, cabinet members (including four go-
ing off the board in January) voted to grade the tougher tests on a curve
so that the passing rate will be the same as last year. The watering down
was requested by Education Department specialist Mark Heldom to give

education officials more Ume to cope witLh the higher standards before
October, 1995, when thdie sutiffer tests will be given again.
ZERO TOLERANCE: Acting as the Board of Education, the Florida
Cabinet has approved a Zero Tolerance Rule against violence in Florida
classrooms. The rule notifies teachers if violent students with Juvenile
criminal records are in a classroom. It also gives teachers a voice in de-'
ciding who can be allowed in their classroom. A D.O.E. specialist told
cabinet members that alternative classes for unruly students are availa-
ble in every school district in Florida.
