6-6 The Orlando Sentinel, Tuesday, April 26, 1988 PLOTS From D-1 tjthpr agricultural pursuits. Florida's only two cotton gins are located in Santa Rosa. In recent years the county has benefited from oil i-ells around Jay, near the Alabama border, and growth from Pensacola in neighboring Escambia County has spilled into the area. i Despite the changes, politics has remained rough 4nd, tumble, at least where Pooley is concerned. Pooley said he has become used to dealing with attempts on his life. S The antagonism between Pooley and Wilson dates back to the early 1960s. Pooley then was a commentator for a Milton radio station and Wilson was a (Jounty commissioner. J Pooley had various nicknames for the five commissioners and called Wilson "Super Octane" and "the young gas-guzzling commissioner from Harold." J The sobriquets were based on the commssioners' policy of keeping county gasoline pumps for their district road-working equipment at their homes. I One morning, Pooley told listeners Wilson kept his pumps in his back yard. Pooley added that Wilson operated a fleet of privately owned logging trucks. "I never said he was stealing county gas, I was just Jiving them a geography lesson," Pooley said. -Wilson felt otherwise and filed a slander suit. It was. dismissed, but Pooley's radio attacks led the Federal Communications Commission to yank the station's license, and contributed to creating the ffCC's fairness doctrine that required broadcasters to give equal time to parties criticized on the air. Thlngs'turned more serious in 1979 when a dynamite bomb tore through his mobile home while Pooley was asleep. No arrests were made. Five years later, Florida Department of Law Enforcement agents foiled another attempt by faking Pooley's murder and then hiding him in a Pensacola motel. They poured ketchup over him for a photograph to prove to a suspect that Pooley was dead. Former Santa Rosa County Commissioner Leroy Johnson, father of state Rep. Bolley Johnson, D-Mil-ton, was charged with trying to hire a police informant who posed as a hit man. Johnson died of a heart attack a week after his arrest. In 1987, William Chester Cole, a parolee, was convicted of being the middleman in a third attempt to kill Pooley. Curtis "Boo" Adams, a convicted killer and prison escapee, testified Cole tried to hire him on behalf of Wilson to kill Pooley for $7,000. Negotiations to reduce Cole's 35-year sentence in exchange for fingering Wilson broke down and Wilson was not charged in that case. Pooley's political career began after World War II when he was appointed county sanitarian. He was elected circuit court clerk in 1952, but was defeated four years later. He became involved in backing other candidates and was known as "3 to 2 Pooley" during the 1970s when he was hired and fired repeatedly as the mosquito control director by 3 to 2 votes, depending on whether his supporters were in or out of office. Pooley became public works director in 1981. The next year, Wilson tried to unseat a Pooley-backed commissioner, but he directed most of his campaign rhetoric at Pooley. Wilson lost and Pooley remained on the county payroll until he retired in 1986.

He said he didn't expect the accident to affect work on the 50-acre park, which is half completed and will open next spring. The park will feature pools for swimming and surfing and a man-made river with a gentle current that will take swimmers into caves and rock grottoes with Disney-designed special effects. It also will have a 95-foot mountain with slides that pour into a huge wave pool. In all, there will be 30 acres of water surface and there will be pools for young children and adults, featuring geysers, fountains and bubble jets. Typhoon Lagoon also will have a pool for snorkeling. Disney is in the middle of a $1.4 billion construction program. Besides the water park, the company is building Pleasure Island, a nighttime entertainment complex of nightclubs and shops, and the $400 million Disney-MGM movie studio southwest of Epcot. Before Monday's accident, three people had been killed in construction accidents at Disney World projects. In 1974, a carpenter died when glue fumes ignited. In 1981, two people died during construction of Epcot Center a welder who fell from a building and a worker who was hit by a steel beam that fell from a crane. Michael Blumfield of the Sentinel staf contributed to this report. From D-1 begin. A fisherman found Teresa's fully clothed body May 12 floating face down in Knight Lake, less than a half-mile from the girl's home at 29 S. Sunset Ave. in Mascotte. A medical examiner said the girl had been choked, sexually assaulted and drowned. Duckett told investigators from the Lake County Sheriffs Office and the 5th Circuit State Attorney's Office that he saw Teresa at a convenience store a block from her home the night before her body was found. He said he told the girl to walk home because the city's 10:30 p.m. curfew for children was approaching. He said he returned to the police station briefly before resuming his patrol. Duckett was the only officer on duty that night in Mascotte, a town of about 1600 residents in south Lake County. The girl's mother, Dorothy Mae McAbee, said her daughter, a fifth Elementary School, had gone to pencil for homework. l.iiM.iJJ.iu.uimuuJlliiiiil imm Duckett grader at Mascotte the store to buy a . ...
