STATE THE TAMPA TRIBUNE, Saturday, September 11, 1 982 3-l Police: Foster Interfered With Law By SYLVIA WRIGHT Tribune Staff Writer Florida Rep. "Trooper Jim" Foster has been ordered to appear in court to answer a charge that he interfered with a Hillsborough Sheriff's deputy who appeared at Foster's post-election party Tuesday night to serve a friend a summons, according to Hillsborough County prosecutors and court records. Resisting an officer without violence is a first-degree misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail and a $1,000 fine, or both. No one could be reached at Foster's Tampa or Tallahassee offices for comment. Foster was defeated in the Democratic primary by Mary Figg. Cpl. Nelson Zalva and Deputy Raymond Haas When they identified themselves. Dasher ran from them and stood behind Foster, Tosca said. Foster blocked one deputy's path with his body and put his hands on the deputy's chest, the prosecutor said. In the meantime, Dasher had moved away to a corner of the room, where the second deputy handed her the papers, he said. The first deputy stepped away from Foster and nothing further occurred, Tosca said. The papers were orders to appear as a witness in the divorce case of Jim and Nicolina Mae Foster, according to prosecutors and court records. Dasher was instructed by the forms to bring with her cancelled checks or other bank records and any mortgages or deeds in her possession, records show. A hearing was set in the case for Sept. 30.

Expecting Dasher to be at Foster's party waiting for election returns, the two deputies went to the Ramada Inn at Busch Boulevard and Interstate 275 at about 11 p.m., Tosca said. State Rep.

Teen Pilot 16-Year-Old Will Soon Fly Airborne Ferry No Bond Set For Murder Defendants POMPANO BEACH (AP) Brent Holman, who celebrated his 16th birthday by soloing in six separate aircraft, will soon be at the controls of a DC-3 ferrying passengers between here, the Bahamas and Cuba. On Monday, the 18-year-old will become a first officer of Pompano Airways, a small international commuter airline. "I believe in giving a young person an opportunity if he's qualified, and believe me, this guy is qualified," said Fred DeWitt, director of Pompano. Airways. Since one usually has to be 23 years old to obtain an Airline Transport Pilot rating from the Federal Aviation Administration, Holman lacks that rating, which is required of pilots for major air carriers. However, as co-pilot for Pompano Airways, he will be called on to fly Douglas DC-3 aircraft with up to 30 passengers. The non-smoking, non-drinking teen-ager began college while he was still in high school and should have his B.A. at 19. He's logged thousands of hours of flying time since he first soloed at 16. On his 16th birthday, he flew a helicopter, a gyrocop-ter and four single-engine planes. "I guess you could say I'm a nut about flying," Brent said. A licensed flight instructor, he also holds ratings or licenses to fly helicopters, gyroplanes, gliders, certain single and multi-engine airplanes and seaplanes, and a World War II JU-52. Holman's father, Gene Holman, a Miami Beach general contractor, gave him a $250,000 twin-engine Baron, 55 Beechcraft for his birthday. "He's very ambitious," Eileen Holman says of her son. "We're very proud of him." DeWitt recalled that the young Holman had started working at Pompano Airways as a ramp agent. "Then he went into our commissary and had it turned around and making a profit inside of 60 days. "He did a cost-saving analysis of our phone system," DeWitt said. He hopes Brent will have a long future with the airline. "That kid's a genius," DeWitt added. "I've got to watch out or he'll have my job someday." But Brent has bigger plans. "Hopefully, I'd like to branch out someday and start my own airline," he said. GAINESVILLE (UPI) Judges ordered three suspects described as polite, boyish-looking male prostitutes held without bond Friday in the ritualistic slaying of the University of Florida's "junk food professor." The two young men and one Juvenile charged with first-degree murder in the killing of popular nutrition professor Howard Apple-dorf face grand jury action in Alachua County Wednesday, state attorney Eugene Whitworth said. The adult suspects, identified as Gary McNichol, 21, of New York and California, and Paul Everson, .19, of Roslindale, stood silently before Circuit Judge Stan Morris as he refused to set bail and appointed public defenders to handle their cases. Judge R.A. Green made the same ruling for a 15-year-old suspect identified as Shane Kennedy of Woodbury, Conn. Assistant State Attorney Gordon Grolan said he is "fairly sure" Kennedy will be tried as an adult. The three slim, pale suspects with shoulder-length blond hair were returned to Gainesville from New York Thursday night after waiving extradition. They are charged in last Friday's killing of Appledorf, a 41-year-old bachelor whose gagged and blindfolded body was discovered bound with neckties Sunday in his ransacked Gainesville condominium. tl mj; gut V. lxl Gasoline Found In Belleview Water Supply view's 2,000 citizens, officials said. "Two of the wells we've been using since 1963, and the third one is just a couple years old," Grant said. "But there's gas in all three of them. There are service stations all up and down the four-lane near the wells, but we can only guess right now about what happened to our water." Grant said people began noticing the strange odors and tastes in the water "all of a sudden about was over-chlorinated," she said. "We called in the state and a consulting firm to do some tests and, sure enough, we've got gasoline in our drinking water. "We have no idea how it got in there," she said. The Florida Department of Environmental Regulation determined the water's gasoline content was about 5 parts per million in three wells that provide water to Belle- BELLEVIEW (UPI) Belleview residents were warned not to drink their water Friday because it contains gasoline, officials said. "It's not enough to cause any real harm, but we do have gas in the water," City Clerk Judy Grant said. Belleview officials began testing the water after complaints about "funny tastes and smells in it" started coming in to City Hall.

AP Water Rule Controversy Revived Newsbriefs STATit 'Tribune Wires their wastes in places where they might seep into the ground. More than 90 percent of the state's drinking water comes from underground aquifers and DER officials said that water already is becoming polluted. The rules require polluters to monitor the water under their property, and they prohibit industries from allowing polluted water from seeping under other people's property. Industry opposed the rules by saying they were too strict and too vague. Terry Cole, DER's deputy secretary, said he was not surprised by the industry's challenge or the hearing officer's ruling. "We knew there was going to be a hearing request," he said. "All we're doing now is arguing about what issues are going to be aired at that hearing." After the trial, Bentley will decide if the regulations are valid. If he strikes down the rules, DER will either have to appeal the decision to the Florida District Court of Appeals or rewrite them. A Florida administrative hearing officer Thursday reopened the controversy on the state's ground water rules that had been adopted last month by the Environmental Regulatory Commission. Christopher Bentley, the state's director of administrative hearings, ruled the regulations presented to the commission Aug. 25 had been so greatly altered from the ones that had been published in June that they did not comply with the state's rule requiring 30 days notice. Bentley was acting on an appeal filed by a coalition of industrial groups, including the Florida Chapter of the National Association of Industrial and Office Parks, Orlando Central Park, Occidental Chemical Agricultural Products, and the Florida Electric Power Coordinating Group. He allowed the groups 14 days to file petitions that challenged the validity of the rules. Within 30 days of that time, he said, he will hold a trial to determine if the rules are valid. The ground water rules were designed to protect the state's drinking water from being polluted by industries and municipalities that dump would gladly debate his Republican primary runoff opponent, David Blud-worth, if it fits his schedule. "We are getting requests in now from all over the state on joint appearances," Poole said in a telephone interview. "I'm sure there will be plenty of them." Bludworth, state attorney for Palm Beach County, called Thursday for debates with Poole, a state senator from Fort Lauderdale, in a "Meet the Press-type format." Retiree Jailed For Murder A retired farm worker was held without bond Friday on murder charges in a shooting police said apparently was sparked by an argument over a walking stick. Palm Beach Sheriff's detective William Bass said 64-year-old Ulysses Moore was jailed without bond in Belle Glade. Moore was arrested Thursday night in Pahokee on a first-degree murder warrant in the slaying of 68-year-old Warren James White, but Bass said he expected prosecutors to reduce the charge to second-degree murder. Florida Farmer Gets S7.3 Million In Suit Union County tobacco farmer Bobby Hawkins lost the war against nematodes, but he won a $7.3 million battle Friday against the Mobil Chemical Company. After a two-week trial in Lake Butler, a six-person jury made the largest award in this North Florida county's history. The trial was also the longest in county history. Jurors agreed that the corporation exaggerated the effectiveness of a nematode-killing chemical called Liquid The Mobil chemical has been proven effective in other tobacco-growing states, but differences in Florida concerning humidity and temperature apparently rendered it ineffective in this state, according to expert testimony. It is no longer marketed for use on Florida tobacco, witnesses said. The company had advertised "Mocap" as a 100 percent effective, all-weather cure for nematodes, a microscopic worm-like parasite. Bafalis Won't Discuss Strategy U.S. Rep. L.A. "Skip" Bafalis says he won't discuss campaign strategy in public any more and will keep it a secret as Gov. Bob Graham has been doing. Nick Longworth, Bafalis campaign manager, said in Tallahassee the GOP gubernatorial nomineee has concluded he has been too open with campaign strategy in the past. Bafalis has instructed aides and others working in his campaign to no longer answer reporters' questions on such items as fund-raising, the purchase of radio and television advertising and specific campaign approaches. Gov. Bob Graham has refused to discuss the strategy of his re-election campaign, Longworth said in a telephone interview from Miami.
