Holmes County investigating suspicious death
S From staff reports
Holmes County authorities
are investigating the suspicious.
death of a man who lived about
five miles from Graceville on
Highway 2 in the neighboring
Tony Ray Armstrong, 47, died
at Flowers Hospital a few days
after suffering a knife wound to
the chest on June 17. Authori-
ties say his live-in girlfriend is a
person of interest in the case but
that she has not been named as
a homicide suspect. Meanwhile,
his girlfriend, 35-year-old Hazel
who is the mother
of his 16-month-
old child, has
been arrested on
child neglect and
drug charges. The
Peaco arrest came after
peacock authorities went
to the' man's aid, found condi-
tions of concert in the fann-
ily residence and subsequently
gleaned additional information
from a drug screen conducted
on the child. The test revealed
that the baby had been exposed
to methamphetamine by way of
beipg around the cooking and!
or smoking of the substance, ac-
cordingtlie Lt. Michael Raley, the
chief investigator on the case.
Peacock had called 911 in Hol-
mes County on June 17 to report
that her boyfriend had fallen
down the front steps of their
home at 3392 Highway 2 and
landed on his small fixed-blade
Armstrong was taken to Flow-
ers Hospital, where he under-
went surgery for a severe knife
wound to his chest. He never re-
gained consciousness and died a
few days later. .
Deputies who responded to
the scene of the incident saw
signs of drug use in and around
the home, authorities reported
in a press release about the case.
The Department of Children and
Families was notified and took
the. child into shelter custody,
, then conducted a drug screen.
After Peacock was charged
with neglect of a child, she was
taken to the Holmes County Jail.
While she was being booked into
the facility, officials discovered
several Tremadol pills hidden
in her bra and in a body cavity.
She was subsequently charged
with introduction of contraband
into the facility and with posses-
sion of certain drugs without a
prescription. Tremadol is a mild

City commission sets tentative

NLMARIANNA Despite the torrential
downpour taking place outside city hall,
Wednesday's special session of the Mari-
anna City Commission was fairly cut arid
dried. Its main objective: to set next year's
tentative mileage rate, moving forward in
the budgeting process.
The village decision -was previously
an issue at the July 11 budget workshop,
when officials discussed the city retaining
its current 2.8164 miUll rate for use in the
2013-2014 fiscal year budget. This week's
vote was to officially set that tentative
rate, in compliance with state Truth in
Millage (TRINI) regulations, so the county
property appraiser can notify city prop-
erty owners of the proposed rate.
By staying at the same millage rate,
the city foregoes the option of the lower
"rolled-back" rate of 2:570, at which the
municipal governmentwould likely collect
the same amount of property tax revenue
as it collected in the previous year. The
proposed millage, the city says, "will result

A standing-room-only crowd gathered
in Sneads City Hall on July 11 to learn
about Sturgeon AquaFarnMs and its plan
to increase its water usage. Community
concern over the sturgeon farm's request
to draw more water has led to an open

Community concern over a local
sturgeon farm's request to draw signif-
icantly more water than it now pumps
from the Floridan aquifer has led the
involvecregulating agency to sched-
ule an informal open house where
people can learn more about its poli-
cies and procedures.
Northwest Florida Water Manage-
ment District spokesman Lauren En-

the sturgeon farm will be a hot-but-

Pope engages in culture war' in church
If Roman Catholicism can be
compared with a fleet, then
the Brazilian church has long
been its largest aircraft carrier
- with an estimated 123 million
Catholics, more than any other
country on Earth.
But that isn't how Pope Francis
described this chUrch during one
of the less-publicized addresses
during his epic World Youth Day
sojourn in Rio deJaneiro. Instead
of a rich and powerful vessel for '
the old establishment, he told
Brazil's bishops that.their church.
is now a humble sailing ship
surrounded by the giant ships of
globalization and Protestantism.
"The church's barque is not
as powerful as the great trans-
Atlantic liners which cross the
ocean," said Francis, in the first of
two lengthy, serious addresses to
bishops from this region.
"Dear brothers, the results of
our pastoral work do not depend
on a wealth of resources, but on
the creativity of love:... Another
lesson which the church must
constantly recall is that she
cannot leave' simplicity behind;
o the rwise she forgets how to
speak the language of mystery,"
said the official text. "At times we
lose people because they don't
understand what we are saying,
because we have forgotten the
language of simplicity and import

2000 and 2010, Catholics dropped

Jerusalem, the pope asked Brazil's
bishops if they still have what it
takes to win those who have fled
their altars seeking forms of faith
considered "more lofty, more
powerful and faster" than the
Catholicism that is their heritage.
"I would like all of us to ask our-
selves today: Are we still a church
capable of warming hearts? A
church capable of leading people-
backto Jerusalem? Of bringing
them home? Jerusalem is where
our roots are: Scripture, cateche-
sis, sacraments, community,
friendship with the Lord, Mary
and the apostles," he said,. "Are we
still able to speak of these roots
in a way that will revive a sense of
wonder at their beauty?...
"People today are attracted by
,things that are faster and faster:
rapid Internet connections,.
speedy cars and planes, instant
relationships. But at the same
time we see a desperate need
for calmness, I would even say
slowness. Is the church still able
to move slowly: to take the time
to listen, to have the patience to
mend and reassemble? Or is the
church herself caught up in the
frantic pursuit of efficiency?"
WVhen it comes to training pas-
tors capable of doing this work,
there is no quick fix and, warned

By the time he addressed
conference leaders from Latin
America and the Caribbean,
shortly before leaving the coun-
try, Pope Francis was openly
stating his desire for bishops to
leave the comfort of their ecclesi-
astical fortresses and to return to
the pastoral front lines, working
elbow to elbow with their people.
As one observer told "Whispers
in the Loggia'" blogger Rocco
Palmo, "This will cause heart
failure in certain quarters." The
pope appealed for better preach-
ing, improved Bible studies, a
renewed presence among the
poor, expanded use of the talents
of women and a true openness to
laypeople providing parish-level
leadership in cooperation with
"The key,".said Palmo via email,
"is that Francis is far more in-
vested in the 'culture war' inside

headlines. The pope is "literally

ism, decadence, etc., that he sees

July 23 ceremony dedicating the first sign
was dominated by fundamentalist Christian
remarks, the county government endorsed a
particular view of religion as its "official state
religiof'n" in approving the sign, and the sign
and ceremony dedicating it have violated the
state constitution as it pertains to worship.
The motions also cite statements during the
dedication ceremony that, according to the

preachers and proselytizers on matters o4re-

than 20 teachers and staff
as volunteer security

Suffer from a math disability: dyscalculia, or numlexia.
Dyscalculia is to numbers what dyslexia is to letters. The number 243 can turn into
200403 inside the heads of children with dyscalculia. They use their fingers when asked
to count, and addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division are incomprehensible.
There are several outward signs of this learning disability, but they have' nothing to do
with intellectual disability or sensory disorders.
Before diagnosing dyscalculia, health professionals eliminate other hypotheses, such
as problems with vision, hearing, or the consequences of brain trauma, for example.
SA neuropsychological examination is then conducted in order to assess intellectual
" quotient (0IQ), concentration, memory, and language. These procedures may seem to
" take a long time, but they are vital in order to avoid making a premature diagnosis,
" which could point doctors in the wrong direction.
Children diagnosed with dyscalculia are treated by a speech therapist. The length.of,
the treatment varies, as each case
is unique, but excellent results are
entirely possible. If you're concerned'
that your child may suffer from a
math disability, talk about it with a
professional who will be able to direct
you towards appropriate assessments
Dyscalculia is'to numbers
what dyslexia-is to letters.

"It's been an anomaly for sure. since

from the NCAA in February and met
with the Committee on Infractions in

he gave dozens of athletes, coaches
and recruits impermissible benefits
over an eight-year span, often long
before any of MNliami's current players
were even thinking about college.

* An"nie's Mailbo c
Dear Annie: Jly boyfriend, "Keith," :has
worked at a retail business f6r30 years,:'
He has been friends with a female co-
worker for a while. "Maria" calls Keith
on his cellphone every day, even though
he will be at work within a short time. At
work, they talk constantly. If he doesn't
work on a.specific day,."she calls him
multiple times at home.
I have no problem with their friend-
ship, except that Keith keeps most of this
information from me. When I askhim,
;,directly about talking to Maria, he denies
'it, even though I have celphone records
as proof. If it is ory A ,friendship,; why
is he so secretive? There'also have been
several occasions where we hadplans
but Keith made up excuses for being late
while he waited for Marla's phone call.
Keith doesn't, understand myfrustra-"
tion of having to wait so thathe can talk
to his "friend." And because he has lim-
ited minutes' on his cell plan, he spends
most of them with.her, and I get fewer.
Am I simply jealous, or should I be
concerned about their interactions?
-TIRED OF BEING SECOND
Dear Tired: Keith heeds to be transpar-
ent in his dealings with Marla. The se-
, crecy and frequency of the contact make
it suspicious, and his excuses are a way
to maintainthe relationship with her at
the expense of the one he has with you. It
doesn't matter whether it's a flirtation, ,an
affair or nothing. He needs to take'your
feelings into'cprisideration and treat your
relationship with more respect,-instead
Sof creating friction because he likes the
attention frnomMarla. It's unfair to all of
SDear Annie: "Too Good of a Cook" said
she'd like to have some help with the
grocery bills and 'cooking when her eight
grown children and numerous grandchil-
dren visit. This is what we did:
Six couples were invited to spend the
weekend at a friend's'mountaitn cabin.
The host specified that each couple
would be responsible for cooking one
meal for everyone and should bring all
of the groceries required for that meal.'
It worked out great, and it was fun to
sample everyone else's cooking. We
shared the cooking cleanup and grocery
expense. That way, the host could also
enjoy the festivities'and didn't have to'
spend a fortune on groceries and all of
his time in the kitchen preparing meals.
Intoday's deal, howwouldEasthave donein fourhearts'
and what should happen in four spades doubled?
West ,did not want to pass over one spade, but -her
hand was not strong enough'for two diamonds or suit-
Sable, in her partnership, for three diamonds. So she'
passed. However, when East reopened with a takeout
double, West correctly jumped to three diamonds.L East
then wondered about five and six diamonds, but sensi-
bly went for the 10-trick heart game.
If that had been passed out, East would probably have
lost one spade and one heart-to come home with, an
overtrick for plus 650. .',
When South'bid an undisciplined four spades, West
'happily doubled: She led the diamond ace and cashed
'the diamond king. What should she have done next?
Where were East's points for his strong bidding? He
Shad to have good clubs. So West should have shifted
to that suit, which would have resulted in down four,
plus 800. ButWest actually led'the diamond jack at trick
three. South ruffed, drew trumps' (discarding two hearts
from the board), and ducked a heart to East. Endplayed,
he could take only two hearts and two clubs for down
three, plus 500. So the sacrifice gained, but it was a
close-run thing. '

Inbee Park wasn't just
chasing history at St. An-
drews. She was sprinting
All it took were three
loose tee shots, a pair of
three-putts and one dou-
ble bogey on the back nine
Thursday in the Women's
British Open to remind
her that winning an un-
precedented four straight
majors in one year is not
goingto be easy.
Park ran off six birdies in
10 holes to race to the top
of the leaderboard, only to
stumble coming back in
for a 3-under 69 that left
her three shots out of the'
"Felt-like a roller coaster
today" Park said.
Morgan Pressel, one spot
out of making the Sol-
heim Cup team this week,
caught a break with the
weather in the afternoon
and made seven birdies in
a round of 66. She was one
shot clear of Stacy Lewis,
the former No. 1 player in
women's golf, who shot 31
on the tougher back nine.
Also at 67 were former U.S.
Women's Open champion
Na Yeon Choi, Nicole Cas-
trale and Mi-Jeong Jeon.
Paula Creamer played
bogey-free for a 68.
"Once the round started,
and especially playing so
good the first few holes,
that really gave me a lot of
confidence," Park said. "I
didn't feel much pressure
during the round. I'm just
glad that it is already start-
ed and I got the first round
under my belt."
The conditions were
perfect for scoring on the
Old Course, with light rain
falling from a lead-gray
sky and barely any wind.
Some of the biggest names
in women's golf, including
Park, Lewis and Creamer,
teed off in front of the
Royal & Ancient clubhouse,
with no more than a few

E Scv: 1. .. .1:
T '.IHLL' I f E:,:
Morgan Pressel tees off on the second hole during the first
round of the Women's British Open on the Old Course at St
Andrews, Scotland, on Thursday.
Park already has won
three majors this year. No
golfer, male or female, has
ever won four in one year.
The 25-year-old South
Korean said she was more
nervous than' usual be-
fore getting to the first
tee, perhaps because of all
the chatter about a Grand
It sure didn't show.
Park opened with a
wedge into about 7 feet for
birdie, and then she really
poured it on with an amaz-
ing display of her putting
stroke. She rolled in a 30-
foot birdie putt on No. 3
with perfect pace. She hit
a hybrid the perfect dis-
-tance on No. 4, giving her a
flat line between ridges for
an 18-foot birdie putt She
made a 35-foot birdie putt
on No. '6, another birdie
just inside 20 feet on No. 8
and a sixth birdie on No. 10
after a wedge that stopped
5 feet from the hole.
Just like that, there was
a feeling of inevitability
about this Women's British
Open, much as it was for
Tiger Woods when he wvon
the British Open for the
first time at St. Andrews by
eight shots to complete the
career Grand Slam in 2000.
'But not for long.
Dressed in a black rain
suit, her emotioris never
changed,. even when she
started to unravel.,
It started with a tee shot
into thick grass to the right
of the 12th fainvrway. She
saved par with another
great putt, this one from 15
feet, but she couldn't save
herself much longer. After
another poor tee shot on
the 13th, she came danger-
ously close to a large gorse
bush. She chipped to 15
feet and made bogey, her
first of the day. A delicate
pitch-and-run helped her
avoid another bogey on
the 15th after a third tee
shot to the right.
Her biggest mistake
came from the left rough
with a shot into a bunker
short of the 16th green. The
ball was a few feet from the
lip, and Park was tempted
to take it up over the high
face of the vetted wall. In-
stead, she turned sideways
and blasted out to the mid-
dle of the double green,
the ball about halfway be-
tween the holes cut for No.
2 and No. 16. From about
90 feet away, she didn't hit
it nearly hard enough, and
her par putt from 15 feet
caught the lip.
SShe also three-putted the
l7th from 40 feet when her
first attempt came up 10'
feet short. Considered one
of the, best putters on the
LPGA Tour and looking
for a short time as though
she couldn't miss Park
bogeys and had lost four
shots in a five-hole span.
"1 thought that I fixed my
.problems coming into this
week. I was hitting it so
good on the practice round
and I didn't really miss any
balls," Park said. "I thought
I was really prepared,
but 'those couple, of bad
shots really shocked me. I
couldn't really concentrate
on the greens when I hit
those shots. I'%e learned
my lesson. Good thing I've
,got my time to fix that to-
day and tomorrow."
She still was only two
shots behind, opening with
a round that cotdd have
been much better. Even so.
Park had no complaints.,
"A little disappointing.
but I'm glad that I've done
that in the first round in-
stead of the final round,"
Only four months ago,
Park and Lewis .were bat-
tling for No. 1 'in the world
until the South Korean left
everyone in -her wake by
adding to her major cham-
pionship collection. The
Kraft Nabisco Champion-
ship put her in position
.to take No. 1 away fr6ni
