N.D. ?8 -i Slain trooper's memory may produce fresh leads ORANGEBURG (AP) Law enforcement officials are hoping an effort to honor the memory of a trooper slain 21 years ago also will produce fresh leads in the case. South Carolina Public Safety Director Boykin Rose attended the dedication of the Orangeburg Patrol Office that was named for Highway Patrol Trooper First Class Roy Odes Caffey, gunned down along U.S. Interstate 26 on Oct. 8, . 1972. It is believed to be the only unsolved slaying of a South Carolina trooper in modern times. Rose wants to end that distinction and is hopeful the dedication of the building will prompt those with information about the killing to come forward. The department, he said, is committed to bring C alley's killers to justice. Caffey's son, Robert, has been cornmiited to that goal since his father's death. Robert Caffey, a bank employee in Orangeburg, was 15 when his father died. On the 10th anniversary of the incidenL Caffev said in The (Charles ton) Post and Courier that he urged officials at the State Law Enforcement Division to create a Crime Stoppers television advertisement to revive interest in tne snooting. Five years later, Caffey said he sent details to the television serfcs "Unsolved Mysteries," but was not able to get his father's story on the show. A year ago on the 20th anniversary, a newspaper interview done by Caffey prompted a woman to call him and say she knew some people wno taiKea aoout me snooting. But Caffey said the woman did not want to get further involved. Retired Patrol Capt. J.C. Pace was the senior lieutenant in the Orangeburg District the night Trooper Caffey was slain. Pace and Patrol Lt. bdwin D. Winn, who served with Caffey for 1 1 years, think more wan one person was responsible. Trooper Caffey was found about a mile east of the U.S. 601 inter change in the eastbound lane. Seeds in Space Museum exhibit guided tours are available The Museum is offering free guided tours of an exhibit on loan from Park Seed called Seeds in Space to groups of 10 or more. "We have a volunteer guide who will be on call to tour groups through the exhibit," said Despina Yeargin, administrator at The Museum. "The guide will offer an extended tour of The Museum if time allows." The Park Seed exhibit will be on loan to The Museum at least through the end of April 1994. The exhibit showcases equipment used in two NASA experiments, explained Dr. Jim Alston, Park Seed's director of research. "A round canister called the 'Getaway Special' that was used to evaluate the packaging of seeds in space," said Dr. Alston, referring to one of the exhibits. Also on exhibit is a large tray that held 12.5 million tomato seeds transported into space by the space shuttle. The seeds were released aboard the Long Duration Exposure Facility where they stayed in orbit for 69 months. The seeds used in the ex- - .JIK..H.

Bob Skutt, who has guided tours of the exhibit said the seeds are a hit. "Students are familiar with the experiments and are ex cited to see them," he said. The exhibit also is a good educational experience. "This exhibit gives us an opportunity to share with the people in Greenwood," said Sally Clark, director of Park Seed's Organizational Development and Human Resources. "It's a good time for teachers to bring classes to tour The Museum with the added bonus of Seeds in Space." When the Seeds in Space exhibit leaves Greenwood it will be on display at the State Museum in Columbia. For more information or to make tour reservations call The Museum at 229-7093. Gay former ROTC cadet chooses to leave USC COLUMBIA (AP) Even as he prepares to leave the university where his budding military career was sidetracked by a debate about homosexuality, former ROTC cadet Jay Belangia says he still wants to be an officer. That goal might be impossible. The 24-year-old Hartsville native stirred up headlines when he declared his homosexuality while a member of the University of South Carolina's ROTC program. Belangia is preparing to leave USC. but has not decided where be will go. He said he wants a fresh start and probably will go to a college in a larger city. He has his eye on a career in law or politics, maybe both, but still wants to serve in the military as an officer. "Personally, I feel good," the 24-year-old Hartsville resident said. "For the first time, I'm really happy. I'm not hiding behind a facade, making up stories about who I'm with.' But be said be is leaving USC with mixed emotions because he made friends who supported him. He also said he is disappointed with USC's leadership, which he said seemed indifferent to his assertions that he was being discriminated against "I'm just looking at it as a learning experience, be said. Belangia lost his ROTC scholarship test summer after a disciplinary hearing where be was charged with not maintaining good grades and not participating in drills. In addition to being dismissed from USC's ROTC program, he also was told be must repay an estimated $3,000 in ROTC scholarship money, Belangia said. Belangia said he is appealing that ruling to the 1st ROTC Region headquarters at Fort Bragg, N.C.. He contends the officers who made the decision were biased. Lt Col. Walter B. Carpenter, who heads USC's Army ROTC program, said be considers Belangia a "former cadet" and declined to talk about the case. Belangia' s disclosure about his sexual orientation came at a time when President Clinton and Congress were most at odds over the (Sec Cadet, page 18) Drummond speaks on ETV State Sen.

Tale of turkey man Every Thanksgiving season I think about him. the man who lived on the property adjacent to my family's in little Moreland, Ga., when I was a child. I won't name him. With all those lawyers advertising on television these days, one needs to avoid any bait whatsoever for possible legal action. But be raised turkeys. Lots of them. A lot of turkeys probably don't smell any worse than a lot of chickens or goats or even dogs, for that matter, but try telling that to the olfactories when the wind suddenly turns east and replaces the scent of Aunt Jessie's petunias with that of heaps of gobbler goo. We never had turkey for Lewis Grizzard S e 1M3 a; Canrita SyJcaai be Thanksgiving at my house. Each year my mother would say, "I think I'll bake a ben for Thanksgiving. Turkey is just too dry." I'm not certain if she really thought turkey was too dry, or if it was -the lingering smell, or it if was because my grandfather, her (See Grizzard, page 18)
