ROBERT ALLENTimes Reporter Democratic State Sen. Bill Montford spoke at the Gadsden County Chamber of Commerces May 28 Go Gadsden meeting. Montford represents District 3, which includes all of Gadsden and 10 neighboring counties. Montford reviewed recent state developments and future possibilities pending successful navigation through the state house and over the governors desk. I want to make water an issue, said Montford, who said he is concerned about water availability. It will be controversial. Local government cannot afford to do what needs to be done. We earmarked $400 million. The legislator said his efforts might be vetoed by Gov. Rick Scott. I believe the governor is a wise, wise business person, said Montford, who hopes Scott will use this acumen to assess which parts of Florida can most readily weather budget cuts. Theyve got plenty down there to cut, but leave us alone up here, said Montford, noting he would prefer the governor turn his attention to anyplace south of Gainesville. All were looking for in northern Florida is our fair share and a little more so we can catch up. According to Montford, the state has scheduled $17 million worth of road projects in Gadsden County. Montford also said the state has $20 million budgeted for the dredging of Port St. Joe a project with economic implications for Gadsden County. We hope it doesnt get vetoed, he said. Montford also discussed the retirement system in Florida. The Florida retirement system is a good, sound system, said Montford. Very few people go into public service to get rich. Thats one of the reasons we want to keep it like it is. Its a good recruitment tool. He said the retirement debate actually exists at two distinct levels: state and local. Montford said many local systems are floundering after mismanagement but he doesnt support a statefunded bailout. You made a decision to get into the mess, said Montford. We shouldnt be taxing people all over Florida to get you out. As far as education is concerned, Montford said the state is keeping up with standards. You will hear and its true that there is a record amount of money put into public education this year, said Montford. But the legislator also said more students than ever are in the states education system, requiring more spending to achieve even the same results. According to David Gardner, executive director of the chamber of commerce, there are 423 more people employed in Gadsden County than last year. Gardner said this means the countys unemployment rate is now below the state and national average. Well continue to fight for economic development even though we dont have political support, said Gardner.

ROBERT ALLENTimes Reporter The Kelly Jr. on Havana Highway and The Country Store on Bainbridge Highway, two alleged outlets for synthetic marijuana or spice and bath salts, were raided by agents from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (BATF) along with deputies from the Gadsden County Sheriffs Office. The raids led to the arrest of two suspects, a mother and son: Karime Hasan Halim, 55, at The Country Store and Wesem Mahmud Halim, 24, at the Kelly Jr. According to a GCSO arrest report, more than 500 bags of suspected spice were uncovered at the Kelly Jr. One of the bags was tested on the scene and reportedly proved positive.

Shawn Wood from the Gadsden County Sheriffs Office provided the commissioners with a special presentation about the Rural County Summit on community disaster and emergency response. The event is scheduled for July 9 to 11 at the Florida Public Safety Institute. Wood said last year the event turned into an unforeseen tourist attraction for Gadsden County. So this year he said the sheriffs office is making a deliberate effort to promote the event beyond its inherent educational value for emergency and law enforcement personnel. This year, the event will feature more speakers over more days and be augmented with recreational opportunities and evening entertainment. Commissioner Keith Dowdell, who is a member of Gadsden Countys tourism development council, spoke about the importance of the summit. Were going to learn a lot because I feel that right around the corner were going to have a tragedy and we should be getting ready for it, he said.

The lifeblood of job creation in America is small business. To help get the lifeblood pumping, Gadsden County Public Library is hosting a program today about starting a small business. Please join us at noon Thursday, June 5, at the McGill Library for a group webinar presented by the U.S. Small Business Administration. This webinar (a live seminar done in real time via computer) will feature a representative from Veteran Franchise Advisors to discuss franchise options available to entrepreneurs. If youve always had an urge to own your own business, franchising just might be the right approach because of all the advantages. A track record of success, strong brand, training opportunities, ongoing operational support and marketing assistance are just a few of the reasons to buy into an existing turnkey business rather than taking the risk of going it alone. The No. 1 reason businesses fail is lack of cash for working capital. After 10 years, less than a quarter of new businesses that were started from the ground up are still in existence. But with franchises, more than three-quarters make it for the long haul. Another reason many small businesses dont survive is because their owners lack knowledge of how a business should be operated. To help fill that gap, Gadsden County Public Library System provides a free resource of selfpaced online continuing education courses available 24/7. Universal Class is a product accessible to Gadsden County residents that contains many courses of practical value to those running a business or exploring new business ventures. Here are just some of the many business topics offered: How to Write a Business Plan, Business Analysis, Home Business, Business Writing Basics, Marketing for Small Business, Business Credit, How to Start a Craft Business, Business Management, How to Start and Run a Daycare Service, Retail Business, Restaurant Management, Small Business Guide, and many more. All of these courses are taught over the Internet by real, experienced instructors with engaging video-based lessons in a collaborative learning environment. You learn at your own pace and get continuous feedback. Once material is mastered, youll even be awarded a certificate of achievement suitable for framing, plus earn accredited Continuing Education Units (CEUs). Take a look at http://gadsdenfl.universalclass.com/register.ht m and enter your library card number to begin making your business hopes and dreams a reality. Gadsden County Public Library System is committed to supporting entrepreneurs and small business owners by providing the good resources they need to build strong organizations. Drop by the McGill Library at noon Thursday to watch the SBA webinar and also pick up a Universal Class brochure. The William A. Bill McGill Library is located at 732 Pat Thomas Parkway in Quincy.

Country Store. According to a May 30 FDLE press release, the combined street value of the bags is $25,000. The same release said $60,000 in currency was uncovered on the scene. Agents also found a Taurus 9-mm pistol with Karime and a Glock 9-mm pistol and a Ruger 22 pistol with Wesem. This led to both suspects facing an additional charge of possessing a firearm during the course of a felony. The investigation leading to the arrests had been underway for several moths. Before the two raids were ordered, a confidential source working for FDLE purchased spice over the counter at The Country Store on three occasions earlier this year: Jan. 28, Feb. 13 and April 24. Special agents purchased spice at Kelly Jr. on March 3 and April 24. According to the press release from FDLE, synthetic marijuana is made from adding psychoactive chemicals to shredded pieces of dried plant material. Both suspects have already been released from the county jail. Both suspects bonds were set at $15,000.

You can literally see the history of Gadsden County if you walk around. Alcorn said Mt. Pleasant is one of the oldest settled areas in the county, leaving a cemetery with a wealth of historic headstones dating back to the mid1800s. The volunteers pruned, weeded, trimmed, and raked around many of the cemeterys more overgrown gravesites. If more people would come out and help, this thing could be looking like a million dollars, said Peggy Tucker as she clipped back the branches of an overgrown bush. Tucker said four generations of her family were there to help with the cleanup. She wants future generations in her family to develop an appreciation for their own heritage and their areas history. I love to walk over there and read the headstones, said Tucker as she pointed toward the cemeterys oldest section. It just makes you wonder what life was like then. Alcorn said nearly everyone helping had family members buried in the cemetery but with about 4,500 gravesites on the grounds, not everyone buried there still has surviving relatives able to maintain their plots. But some do. The southern edge of the cemetery is bordered by a wall of woods tall pines and scraggly brush, alive with the polyrhythmic chatter of different summer insects. Along this tree line, a woman clearly worn from an early start working in the cemetery sat with her feet out of the front passenger seat of her car. Mary Linder of Recovery, Ga., came alone to clean her familys graves. Thats where Ill be put, next to him, said Linder, pointing toward the other side of the long headstone with her husbands name. She said her husband was one half of a two-man machine gun team during World War II. My husband was in some of the worst fighting Germany and Holland, she said. To tell you the truth, you think about the person and think about what he would like you to do. Linder said her husband, Marvin, and her family would want the plot to look nice. They were always the kind of people who liked to till the soil, said Linder, Thats all they knew. As work progressed around the cemetery, a truck and trailer circulated to collect trimmings and haul them away. After a full morning of work, lunch was served at the adjacent church, Centenary United Methodist Church.

JEFF SCHORR Florida Forum I run Craftsman House Gallery & Caf here in St. Petersburg. As a small business owner Im proud to support my community and my country by paying my fair share in taxes. Its distressing to me that many of our countrys multinational giants dont feel the same way. Some dont pay any taxes, while others pay a fraction of them. How is it fair that the wealthiest corporations dont pay taxes while many small business owners on Main Street struggle to survive? I recently returned from a trip to our nations capitol where I joined small business owners from across the country to ask our elected leaders why only some businesses are expected to pay their fair share in taxes. I was pleased to speak with a number of our Florida representatives, including Congressman Patrick Murphy, Congresswoman Kathy Castor and aides of Senator Bill Nelson. I told them whatever they think about taxes, there should not be loopholes that let large multinationals book their profits to tax havens like the Cayman Islands, where they pay no taxes. Its outrageous that there is a single building in the Cayman Islands that is home to nearly 19,000 corporations. We should be able to agree that all businesses large and small should compete on a level playing field. Tax haven loopholes cost an estimated $90 billion lost revenue each year, and every dollar corporations avoid in taxes means another dollar paid by someone like me. It also means more cuts to public programs and investments that help make America a good place to do business. Large multinationals get all the benefits of American infrastructure, security and education, but force the rest of us to foot the bill. No one least of all a wildly profitable company like GE should get a free ride. I hope my representatives take what I said to heart. If they do, theyll soon have a chance to prove it as they consider renewing two offshore tax breaks: the active financing exception and controlled foreign corporation look through rule. These ridiculous loopholes will be gone from the tax code if Congress takes no action. I was disappointed to find out the Senate Finance Committee where our own Senator Bill Nelson serves caved to special interest pressure by extending these loopholes. Even though the corporate lobbyists won the first round, our elected leaders can still stand up for small business owners. Our elected leaders should focus on fixing the tax code so small businesses dont face a competitive disadvantage. The tax dollars saved by closing offshore loopholes could be put to better use by reducing the deficit or, more importantly, investing in infrastructure and education, which is what truly makes America a good place to do business.Schorr is owner of Craftsman House Gallery & Caf in St. Petersburg. A4THEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMES THURSDAY, JUNE5, 2014 WWW.GADCOTIMES.COMIm proud that our preacher has been calling upon me to deliver the benediction lately, although Im a little rusty at praying and feel I pause too many times. Benedictions are short blessings at the conclusion of a public worship service and should promote goodness or well-being. At our Memorial Day, Sunday service on the 25th I had been trying to pay attention to Pastor Browns sermon and at the same time thinking of what Id say if he called upon me to do the benediction. I was a little uncomfortable. I was the only one in the congregation in full military uniform, as I usually am on Memorial and Veterans days. Though I am proud to wear the uniform of the United States Coast Guard and am also authorized to wear it, I still feel a little uncomfortable because most vets cant fit into their uniforms, and Im not so sure theyd wear it to a Memorial Day church service anyhow. I also didnt want our minister to call on me to deliver a prayer simply because I was in uniform. He had shared with me awhile ago that Memorial Day was a day to celebrate all those killed in battle in this countrys wars. Veterans Day would be a day he would honor all veterans attending our church. Preacher, I dont want special attention drawn to myself on Memorial Day. Youre right; it is a day to be celebrating the military dead and nothing else. However, I am Coast Guard Retired, have a right to wear my uniform and wear it to honor our war dead, and will continue to wear it on every Memorial Day and Veterans Day service until I die. And you should, Brother Ray. That Sunday, May 25, our ministers sermon was moving to the point about our Lord, who had paid the ultimate sacrifice for all of humankind when he offered himself at the cross to save the rest of us sinners. However, I continued pondering about what I would pray about if, and when, Brother Brown called upon me to deliver the benediction. I suddenly found myself thinking thoughts Im not quite sure Ive ever thought about in quite the same way. As some of you know, during the Vietnam War, in 1965, I had been called upon to return to a ship, the Coast Guard Cutter Bering Strait, that I had served formerly aboard from 19621963. After my tour aboard the ship I had been sent to Coast Guard Radio Station Honolulu, (NMO), a CG facility located on a larger Navy base on Oahu. My boss, Chief Radioman Shaw, at NMO, met me at the door one day as I was reporting to work. At the time I was the supervisor of one of four radio watches. We handled all messages to and from Commander Coast Guard District 14, which covered all of Hawaii and all CG ship and shore units in the Pacific Ocean in and around Hawaii and points west. Chief Shaw shared that I had just received orders to report back aboard my former ship, the Bering Strait, as a senior radioman, and the ship would be one of the few cutters (ships) headed for service in Vietnam. A few weeks later the chief again met me at the same door as I reported to work and said, Willis, Ive got some good news and some bad news. You wont be going to Vietnam, but you will going to Wake Island for a year of isolated duty. That is, they needed me more to help set up and run a Coast Guard Search and Rescue Center at Wake Island than be back aboard the Bering Strait. Wake Island was the halfway point between Hawaii and Vietnam and needed a search and rescue facility badly as the Navy was about to abolish their mission of performing search and rescue at Wake, and it would be the Coast Guards mission to man that vital station. The Bering Strait went on to serve proudly in Nam, as most all units did during that war. I learned later on that a few Coastguardsmen had been killed while serving aboard my old ship during the war. In fact, very few Coastguardsmen were killed in Vietnam, as we are a very small branch of the military. However, about half of the entire number of Coasties there had been killed while serving aboard the Bering Strait. Father, thank you for this wonderful message from our pastor, who always delivers important messages so well. Bless this wonderful congregation and any from their families who may have paid the ultimate sacrifice during this countrys wars. As the day wears on may we be ever mindful of the sacrifices paid for by so many in service to our wonderful country. Father, remember my shipmates aboard the Coast Guard Cutter Bering Strait who gave their lives for this country while You allowed me safety by sending me elsewhere. Amen, I prayed. I hope that your Memorial Day was a meaningful one, and that those you know who paid the supreme sacrifice for our country were honored the way you saw fit. God bless you.

A 2012 international survey ranked us 30th in math, 23rd in science and 20th in reading among developed nations. The Common Core initiative was designed to address these deficiencies. However, controversy surrounds the rollout of Common Core because it mandates uniform national standards of academic achievement and changes in methods of instruction and assessments of both student and teacher compliance. Some on the political right consider Common Core a federal takeover of K12 education and a vehicle for indoctrinating children with politically correct progressive views. They are concerned that very personal data, already collected by public schools, will be combined with data from each students annual assessment to form a unique personal profile readily available to the federal government and resulting in loss of rights to privacy. Some on the political left have expressed additional concerns about the uniform standards potential to leave disadvantaged students further behind while damaging their self-esteem. They also worry about interference with teachers ability to tailor classes to perceived student needs. Making matters worse, Common Core teaching materials and tests coupled with comments from angry parents appear on the Internet with regularity. The Common Core program was created in 2009 by three private groups based in Washington, D.C., and funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Unfortunately, it was not thoroughly vetted by educators with actual K-12 teaching experience, and its methods and standards lacked substantial scientific support. Statewide adoption was coerced by the U.S Department of Education using stimulus grants, Race to the Top awards and waivers from the No Child Left Behind Act. Supporters of Common Core believed that setting uniform goals to be achieved by all students would tell them and their teachers that they are capable of higher levels of performance. Similar standards had been shown to improve outcomes in private schools and even in some inner-city charter schools. But educators in those schools are less constrained in dealing with the disadvantages some children bring to class. They dont have to accept behavior and discipline problems and they dont have to babysit students with severe learning disabilities. Perhaps the group that framed the Common Core standards had no better choice. They knew, but perhaps dared not admit, that the real and insurmountable problem is the nature of public students themselves. Beginning with the 1960s student revolt against anything that was establishment or traditional, including prevalent morals and norms of behavior, our society began the process of becoming coarse, vulgar, disrespectful, less disciplined, less ambitious and more entitled. The stable family unit gave way to the unstable, impoverished single-parent family. Substance abuse, early onset of sexual activity and children born to unmarried women became the new norm. To the extent that our children reflect those societal changes, they become less able to be taught, less See DIXON / Page A7 Dr. William DixonOTHER VOICES Milestones Congratulations to Amethyst Pugh who received her Associates in Arts Degree from Florida State College of Jacksonville.

Commissioner Micah Brown said he agreed with Gay. Other city commissioners had different inclinations. Were sidestepping some liability by not signing, said Commissioner Daniel McMillan. Its my position that we need to move forward and send a letter to the department of transportation, stating that the city of Quincy wishes to continue with the current traffic signal maintenance and that is my motion. Dowdell seconded McMillans motion. It passed unanimously. Debate regarding former City Manager Jack McLeans severance package also continued. Gay said he had misgivings about the payments because the city was not currently able to pay out leave time for city employees who retired by choice but he said he would still be willing to offer McLean another window of opportunity to sign a release form drafted and issued by the city already issued once that would have allowed McLean to collect more than $140,000. Dowdell argued that McLeans contract did not stipulate his severance pay would be contingent upon the former managers agreement to additional agreements. We kind of put ourselves in this position so we need to go ahead and pay the former city manger his money so we can move on, said Dowdell. And remember now: The contract was made by us. We set those parameters. Dowdell requested a written synopsis of the situation from the citys labor attorney. The matter remains unconcluded.

NORMANDY BEACHHEAD, June 12, 1944 Due to a last-minute alteration in the arrangements, I didnt arrive on the beachhead until the morning after D-day, after our first wave of assault troops had hit the shore. By the time we got here the beaches had been taken and the fighting had moved a couple of miles inland. All that remained on the beach was some sniping and artillery fire, and the occasional startling blast of a minegeysering brown sand into the air. That plus a gigantic and pitiful litter of wreckage along miles of shoreline. Submerged tanks and overturned boats and burned trucks and shellshattered jeeps and sad little personal belongings were strewn all over these bitter sands. That plus the bodies of soldiers lying in rows covered with blankets, the toes of their shoes sticking up in a line as though on drill. And other bodies, uncollected, still sprawling grotesquely in the sand or half hidden by the high grass beyond the beach. That plus an intense, grim determination of work-weary men to get this chaotic beach organized and get all the vital supplies and the reinforcements moving more rapidly over it from the stacked-up ships standing in droves out to sea. Now that it is over it seems to me a pure miracle that we ever took the beach at all. For some of our units it was easy, but in this special sector where I am now our troops faced such odds that our getting ashore was like my whipping Joe Louis down to a pulp. In this column I want to tell you what the opening of the second front in this one sector entailed, so that you can know and appreciate and forever be humbly grateful to those both dead and alive who did it for you. Ashore, facing us, were more enemy troops than we had in our assault waves. The advantages were all theirs, the disadvantages all ours. The Germans were dug into positions that they had been working on for months, although these were not yet all complete. A one-hundredfoot bluff a couple of hundred yards back from the beach had great concrete gun emplacements built right into the hilltop. These opened to the sides instead of to the front, thus making it very hard for naval fire from the sea to reach them. They could shoot parallel with the beach and cover every foot of it for miles with artillery fire. Then they had hidden machine-gun nests on the forward slopes, with crossfire taking in every inch of the beach. These nests were connected by networks of trenches, so that the German gunners could move about without exposing themselves. Throughout the length of the beach, running zigzag a couple of hundred yards back from the shoreline, was an immense V-shaped ditch fifteen feet deep. Nothing could cross it, not even men on foot, until fills had been made. And in other places at the far end of the beach, where the ground is flatter, they had great concrete walls. These were blasted by our naval gunfire or by explosives set by hand after we got ashore. Our only exits from the beach were several swales or valleys, each about one hundred yards wide. The Germans made the most of these funnellike traps, sowing them with buried mines. They contained, also, barbedwire entanglements with mines attached, hidden ditches, and machine guns firing from the slopes. This is what was on the shore. But our men had to go through a maze nearly as deadly as this before they even got ashore. Underwater obstacles were terrific. The Germans had whole fields of evil devices under the water to catch our boats. Even now, several days after the landing, we have cleared only channels through them and cannot yet approach the whole length of the beach with our ships. Even now some ship or boat hits one of these mines every day and is knocked out of commission. The Germans had masses of those great six-pronged spiders, made of railroad iron and standing shoulder-high, just beneath the surface of the water for our landing craft to run into. They also had huge logs buried in the sand, pointing upward and outward, their tops just below the water. Attached to these logs were mines. In addition to these obstacles they had floating mines offshore, land mines buried in the sand of the beach, and more mines in checkerboard rows in the tall grass beyond the sand. And the enemy had four men on shore for every three men we had approaching the shore. And yet we got on. Beach landings are planned to a schedule that is set far ahead of time. They all have to be timed, in order for everything to mesh and for the following waves of troops to be standing off the beach and ready to land at the right moment. As the landings are planned, some elements of the assault force are to break through quickly, push on inland, and attack the most obvious enemy strong points. It is usually the plan for units to be inland, attacking gun positions from behind, within a matter of minutes after the first men hit the beach. I have always been amazed at the speed called for in these plans. Youll have schedules calling for engineers to land at H-hour plus two minutes, and service troops at H-hour plus thirty minutes, and even for press censors to land at H-hour plus seventyfive minutes. But in the attack on this special portion of the beach where I am the worst we had, incidentally the schedule didnt hold. Our men simply could not get past the beach. They were pinned down right on the waters edge by an inhuman wall of fire from the bluff. Our first waves were on that beach for hours, instead of a few minutes, before they could begin working inland. You can still see the foxholes they dug at the very edge of the water, in the sand and the small, jumbled rocks that form parts of the beach. Medical corpsmen attended the wounded as best they could. Men were killed as they stepped out of landing craft. An officer whom I knew got a bullet through the head just as the door of his landing craft was let down. Some men were drowned. The first crack in the beach defenses was finally accomplished by terrific and wonderful naval gunfire, which knocked out the big emplacements. They tell epic stories of destroyers that ran right up into shallow water and had it out pointblank with the big guns in those concrete emplacements ashore. When the heavy fire stopped, our men were organized by their officers and pushed on inland, circling machine-gun nests and taking them from the rear. As one officer said, the only way to take a beach is to face it and keep going. It is costly at first, but its the only way. If the men are pinned down on the beach, dug in and out of action, they might as well not be there at all. They hold up the waves behind them, and nothing is being gained. Our men were pinned down for a while, but finally they stood up and went through, and so we took that beach and accomplished our landing. We did it with every advantage on the enemys side and every disadvantage on ours. In the light of a couple of days of retrospection, we sit and talk and call it a miracle that our men ever got on at all or were able to stay on. Before long it will be permitted to name the units that did it. Then you will know to whom this glory should go. They suffered casualties. And yet if you take the entire beachhead assault, including other units that had a much easier time, our total casualties in driving this wedge into the continent of Europe were remarkably low only a fraction, in fact, of what our commanders had been prepared to accept. And these units that were so battered and went through such hell are still, right at this moment, pushing on inland without rest, their spirits high, their egotism in victory almost reaching the smart-alecky stage. Their tails are up. Weve done it again, they say. They figure that the rest of the army isnt needed at all. Which proves that, while their judgment in this regard is bad, they certainly have the spirit that wins battles and eventually wars. Gadsden County Sheriffs Office Arrest Report June 2, 20141.

But the path to opening a small business is not clear to many young people. According to Bailey, 78 percent of all kids want to own their own business but only 5 percent have a business role model, a number the speaker said is often even smaller in rural areas such as Gadsden County. Every school I go to across America, if I ask the kids what they want to be, its either Labron James, some actor or if the kids are really honest, they tell me they want to deal dope, said Bailey. And these kids want to be athletes, rappers and dope dealers not because theyre stupid. If youre a successful dope dealer, you understand import, export, property, security, customer service, retention all the basic business tenants, misdirected. Youre not talking about dumb kids. Youre talking about brilliant kids that are only mimicking what they see. The impact this loss of potential has on a community and an economy is quantifiably real. According to Bailey, 90 percent of the U.S. economy is based on small business and 78 percent of the nations new jobs are generated by small business. To often we pop into a classroom and say, You can do anything you want and then were gone, said Bailey. These kids want to swim. Thats it. But weve got to teach them a new way to swim. HOPEContinued from Page A1 Ernie Pyle understood invasions, from the initial landing to the ultimate occupation. Before DDay, the war correspondent had documented the process more than once. And he understood the steepest cost of invasions: not just death but the irrevocable attachment of a life to a particular time and place. When the American military invaded North Africa in 1942, Ernie Pyle invaded with them. He followed the Allied soldiers throughout the North African campaign until General Rommels remaining forces surrendered in 1943. Then the Allied soldiers pressed on to other countries, other battlefields, and other stories. They invaded Sicily, the Allies Mediterranean stepping-stone to Axis-occupied Europe. Once again, Pyle was there. He continued reporting the soldiers personal stories until his own death by enemy fire when occupying an uncleared island in the Pacific theater during the spring of 1945. Through these experiences, Pyle made a name for the men around him and, inadvertently, for himself. Graham Hovey, a fellow correspondent, wrote in a 1944 issue of The New Republic, I constantly asked myself why Ernie had done a better job than the rest of us; how he had gotten closer to the American soldier and his thoughts, hopes, fears, and reactions; why he had been able to portray better the tragedy of war. Hovey explained, Like Franklin Roosevelt and the Brooklyn Dodgers, Ernie Pyle is the peoples choice. They elected him their favorite war correspondent for the duration shortly after Americans first began to fight the Germans in this war, and his popularity has steadily increased. But this is no longer the case. Pyles fame has waned over the years. His face and his work are no longer widely identified. If alive, a safe bet says Pyle would no longer be stopped on the street for his autograph. He slid from the forward-floating sphere of public consciousness. Readers familiarity with Pyles work continues to fade fade with the generation who lived in his time and place. Today, even in a journalism classroom, students and professors will not necessarily recognize the name Ernie Pyle. But Pyle, informed by the selfless soldiers around him, would probably accept this reality better than any columnist. By all accounts a slight and oft-times sickly man, the journalist had a well-developed sense of his own mortality. This sensibility eventually brewed into a numbing sense of dread as Pyle watched the bodies of Allied soldiers laid out, row after row, throughout the Blitz and then the invasions of North Africa, Sicily, Italy proper, France, Germany, and the Japanese-held islands. This was the way it went, Pyle once wrote in Here Is Your War after watching a young tank commander killed in the desert. After a while a man didnt feel too deeply about it. He didnt dare. With the same humble understanding demonstrated by the fighting men compelled to serve a necessary function, particular to their time and place, Pyle might embrace the receding recognition of his work as a fitting and lasting echo of the men he wrote about men who lived, fought and died with less recognition than Pyle ever received. This sentiment lingers in the last lines of the correspondents first collection of dispatches. I guess it doesnt make any difference once a man is gone, wrote Pyle. They died and thereby the rest of us can go on and on. When we leave here for the next shore, there is nothing we can do for the ones beneath the wooden crosses, except perhaps to pause and murmur, Thanks, pal.

Governor Scott signed a bill that creates a sales tax holiday for hurricane preparedness supply items running through June 8. The sales tax holiday for hurricane preparedness supplies will make preparing for this years hurricane season easier for all Floridians, said FDEM Director Bryan W. Koon. By keeping money in Floridians pockets while encouraging them to prepare, we ensure Florida is ready for all hazards and continues to be the best state in the nation to work, live and play. Building a disaster supply kit is a simple and effective way to make sure a family has enough water, food, medicine and other essential supplies when other resources may not be readily available. Different families have different needs, so residents need to be sure to take into account their familys specific needs, and include: Water at least 1 gallon daily per person for 3 to 7 days Food at least enough for 3 to 7 days Blankets / Pillows, etc. Clothing First Aid Kit / Medicines Special Items for children and the elderly Toiletries Flashlight / Batteries Radio Battery operated and NOAA weather radio Keys Toys, Books, and Games Important documents Tools Full vehicle fuel tanks Pet care items The 2014 Sales Tax Holiday for Hurricane Supplies will run through June 8.

motivated to learn and achieve. I think it no coincidence that measured student achievement began to drop in the 1960s and has continued to drop every year since. Because Common Core does not address the societal issues causing public schools to continue to underperform, it cannot be expected to significantly affect student performance. Its methodology is unproven. It does gives the federal government an undue influence over educational standards at the expense of states and local boards. Personal, very private, data collected from students will ultimately become available to the federal government. The process of converting to Common Core is time-consuming, costly and disruptive. Coercion by the federal Department of Education flies in the face of laws prohibiting creation of a uniform federal education standard. In the near future, Common Core may be found to be unconstitutional. I believe we would do well to reconsider adoption of Common Core.

Savage, 45, was arrested about 4:30 a.m. May 30 when police say she was found loitering around the Vanadores Trailer Park. According to the QPD arrest report, a deputy was on routine patrol when he spotted Savage. She happened to match the description of a suspicious person the deputy had been told to watch for about half an hour earlier. After the deputy made contact, the report said Savage told him she does not live in the trailer park. According to the report, he asked if she was had any illegal drugs inside it her purse; Savage said she did not. According to the report, the officer asked her if she was hiding anything and Savage said she had been smoking weed but no longer had any in her possession. The deputy asked Savage if he could search the purse. After hearing this question, the report said Savage told the deputy she had found something in a trashcan. The deputy asked to see it, so Savage reached in her purse and produced a plastic container filled with 3 grams of crack cocaine. A police officer arrived to search the suspect. According to the report, the officer found a prescription pill bottle hidden on her person. The bottle was unlabeled and stuffed with paper but the report said it appeared to have cocaine residue inside. She was arrested on a charge of selling cocaine. Her bond was set at $7,500.
