Sen. Jack Gordon (D-Miami Beach) said he intends to keep gas tax legislation bottled up in his committee until the Department of Transportation implements a reclassification plan that would substantially increase road maintenance funds for South Florida. "I will not agree to any transportation tax for Interstate 75 or anything else until the department revises their primary and secondary classifications in order to be fair to Dade County," Gordon said. "I just don't see why Dade County should continue to send a disproportionate amount of taxes for building roads to other parts of the state when the governor and the department continue to be totally unfair to Dade?' he added. Transportation Secretary Tom Webb, said at budget hearings last week that it would take a 2-cent-a-gallon increase in the 8-cent-a-gallon gasoline tax to meet Florida's road building and maintenance needs. Gov. Reubin Askew has said he again will ask the legislature to increase the gasoline tax, but he has not specified an amount. Askew's proposed 2.8 cent hike was rejected by the 1976 legislature. The governor has said Florida faces loss of federal matching funds if it fails to raise more money for transportation. Gordon said the Transportation Department has completed a road reclassification that would treat South Florida fairly but has failed to 45 1L 'J (l abor Extra) 5-fl. t-in. x Mi. 99 69 S57.W Gettysburg Tubular Braid: rustic beauty combined with durability.

Boy's Severed Thumb Sewn Hack On ROCKLEDGE - The severed right thumb of an 11-year-old Cocoa boy has been successfully re-attached in what surgeons at Weusth-off Hospital in Rockledge said was the first operation of its kind in South Florida. The thumb was left hanging by a shred of skin a week ago when Frankie Griffith, 11, Cocoa, got it caught in a hedge trimmer. Dr. J.S. Kaikaran said yesterday that normal blood circulation has been restored in the thumb and Frankie may recover some use of the thumb within three weeks. Numbness in the thumb should begin to disappear within 90 days, the surgeon said. Frankie was helping his brother Tommy, 12, trim a hedge at the Griffith home Dec. 4 so that passersby could see the family Christmas tree. He tripped and his hand fell into the shearing device being operated by the older brother. SPECIAL CHRISTMAS SHOPPING HOURS: MON.

White French for girls! EarlyAmerican for boys! TALLAHASSEE (UPD - A group of ex-thieves at the Niceville road prison are giving away their trade secrets telling merchants how to catch shoplifters, till tappers and credit card sharks. "We don't plan to use them anymore," inmate Robert Cobb of Miami told shopkeepers during a recent demonstration of techniques of stealing. "I don't think criminal any more," chimed in James Brookins of Atlanta. ; The "merchants beware" workshops are a project of the prison's inmate Jaycee chapter. Four inmates, using techniques that kept them in merchandise and funds before they were jailed, put on short skits to show how stock is stolen by deliverymen and shoplifters, how money can be taken from cash registers and how stolen credit cards are used. Then they tell merchants how to guard against the ripoffs. They suggest that cashiers try not to keep large sums of money on hand, avoid letting their attention be drawn from open registers and that registers be placed out of reach of customers. Credit cards, the inmates say, should be checked with the company that issued them before they are honored. "The merchants were amazed," said inmate Charles Lockwood, Tallahassee. "They didn't know all this was going on." Alter the demonstration, each inmate revealed the crimes for which they are serving time. The fourth member of the group, inmate Jaycee president Henry Sullivan of Pensacola, said the project was suggested by a member of the prison staff and developed by the club members. "It's our way of paying restitution for all the things we've done," Cobb said Christmas Seals Fight Lung Disease White or Maple Finish Mates Bed Poster Bed With Canopy Frame Konnet: A distinctly feminine point of view.
