Museum visitor

A visitor to the museum today (Feb. 4, 2017) was Basil Gaines (GHS ’67), son of a former Pasco County sheriff with the same name, who served in the 1960s and 1970s. Basil gave us some old photos and newspapaer clippings. He recalled that his father obtained the first helicopter for the sheriff’s department. His father and Archie Boyd went to Arizona to get the helicopter and drove it back to Pasco County on the back of a flatbed truck.
