Man accused of battery upon 92-year-old mother

From staff reports
Graceville man Donnie Ray
Holman Sr. has been charged
with committing battery upon
his 92-year-old mother.
An officer with the Graceville
Police Department went to the
home where Holman and his
mother live on Sunday around 3

p.m., called there on reports that
Sthe victim had
requested a visit
from police.
Another woman
met the officer in
the front yard of
Sthe home, alleg-
ing that Holman
Holman had been pushing

his mother ar6ind, had shoved
her into a bench and spat in her
face. The officer later spoke with
Holman's mother, who reported
roughly the same allegations
and told the officer that she had
at some point walked from their
residence at 5278 Brown St. to a
home on Cliff Street in an effort
to get away from him.

The resident who lives at the
Cliff Street home brought the al-
leged victim back home and said
she was going to call police, ac-
cording to statements from the
woman who met the officer in
the front yard Sunday afternoon.
Holman's mother told the officer
that she was afraid she would be
further injured if her son stayed

in her home. The officer ran
Holman's name through a com-
puter check and discovered that
an active warrant existed for his
arrest. He was charged with bat-
tery upon an elderly person over
the age of 65 in relation to the al-
leged incident with his mother,
and was also being held on a
non-child support charge.

Compost pile ,
Compost is used
primarily in bed prepara-
tion to improve the soil
and can even be used in
preparing potting mixes.
Partially composted ma-
terial also can be used as
mulchl. And since home-
made compost is free,:
it helps reducetithe cost

means more money left

Build your own
Compost piles should
be located in a conve- '
Snient, but but-of-the-way,
location. A source of
water nearby is helpful.
Avoid locating the pile
against fences or other
structures made out of
wood, because the con-
starit moisture can cause
decay. Make the pile," '
about 3 feet wide by 3 feel
deep by 3 feet Wide to 5

Smaller will not decom-
pose as well, andlarger,.
piles are more difficult to'
work. ,
SAlthough compost cani
be made just by stacking
organic matter in-a pile,
most gardeners prefer to
enclose the pile in a bin.
There are a number of
commercial bins on the
market, or you can make
your own very easily. A ,
15-foot-long piece of wire
fencing material bent int
a circle and fastened with
a few.pieces of wire is.
inexpensive, easy to build
and works well. Avoid
using untreated wood to
build the bin, because

it, although usingthis

TMypicly, composting

Scott: State wil sue Georgia

The Associated Press

(AP) Gov. Rick Scott,
saying it's time to fight
for the economic future
of the Apalachicola Bay
region, announced Tues-
day that Florida will file
a lawsuit against Geor-
gia over its consumption
of freshwater in a river
system that serves three
Southeastern states,
The decision by Florida's
governor to proceed with
a lawsuit directly against
Georgia is an escalation
in a legal dispute lasting
more than two decades.
Scott charged that Geor-
gia has been unwilling to
come up with a reasonable
approach to sharing wa-

region's oyster industry has
suffered "a near collapse

mix of both fresh and salt

"While the timing seems
to work for political pur-
poses, it's ironic this comes
at a time when Florida and
Georgia are experiencing
historically high rainfall,"
Deal said. "The fastest and
best resolution is an agree-
ment, not a lawsuit going
into an election year."

Gov. Rick Scott signed

Sacare has been slow to gather
Support in the Senate. Really
Republican Sen. Mike Lee has
Asked colleagues to sign a letter
promising to,' "not support any .
continuing resolution or appropria-
tions legislation that funds further
implementation or enforcement of,
Obamacare." Of the Senate's 46 Re-
publicans, just 12 signed the letter
when itwas released in late July.-
In the weeks since, one more
Republican, Sen.,Mike Crapo, has:
joined the pledge, bringing the
grand total to 13.That means 33,
GOP senators have declined to sign.
The non-signers include some of
the most conservative members of
the Senate. Recently I asked two of
them why they have not joined the
defunding effort.
"I'm not sure it's the best viable -
way at this point," saidAlabama
Sen.-Jeff Sessions. "I've looked at it
really hard, I've talked to Mike, and
I certainly respect what he's doing,
but I'm not convinced right now
that this is going to be a way that
will be successful and effective."
The Democratic-controlled ..
Senate won't pass a defundirng
measure, Sessions argued, and the
Democratic presideintwould veto
it anyway. "You end up in a govern-
ment shutdown," he said. "There's


no way to avoid this."
Wisconsin's Ron Johnson, who'
ran for the Senate on a promise to
stop Obamacare, echoed Sessions'
words. "I've.done a lot of strategic
planningin my lifetime, and the
first step in developing a strategy
is you have to recognize reality,"
Johnson said. "And it is avery sad,
unfortunate fact that with President
Obama in the White House, and
Harry Reid in the Senate, the only
way you can realistically defund
Obamacare is to repeal it, and .. we
haven'thad one Democrat break .
ranks and join us."
SSessions and Johnson were care-
ful to express their respect for Lee,
-and also to stress that they agree on
the overall goal of stopping Obam-
acare. But the fact is, Republicans
on Capitol Hill seem to be talking
past each other on the subject One
group says, "We can't win," while
the other says, "We've got to try."
Now some Republicans are laying
out the math. Stopping Obamacare

funding would require a Repub-
lican filibuster. Thatwduld take
41 votes to uphold. There are 46 '
Republicans in the Senate. That
means that if just six GOP lawmak-
ers broke tanks and voted with
Democrats to continue funding, the
effort would fail;. '.
Several Republicans have already
voiced outright opposition to the
defunding proposal. Sen. Tom
Cobumrn called it "dishonest." Sen.
'Richard Burrcalleditf"the dumb-
est idea I've ever heard of." Sen.
Roy Blunt said it "won't work." Sen.
Saxby Chambliss said the same. So
did Sen. Mike Johanns. Sen. Susan
Collins said it's unrealistic. Sen.
John McCain said it's not going to
happen. .
That's eight who have chosen
to speak out. None will vote for a
Obamacare defunding measure
that could lead to a shutdown. And
if those eight decline to support a
defunding effort, it will fail.
Some Republicans are discuss-
ing a measure that would delay the
arrival of Obamacare for a year,
or,at least delay the start of the
individual mandate for, year. In
this scenario, a delay bill would
be considered separately from a
government funding bill, so there
would be no shutdown threat;

The gunman, carrying at least a
handgun, took them captive about
12:30 p.m. at the Tensas State Bank

could have issued the
business a cease and de-

Themotion to suspend
any code enforcement
action on the project was
offered by Commissioner
Jeremy Branch. His initial
motion was to suspend en-
forcement until the owner
submitted the proper per-
mit application,, which
would, in effect, suspend
enforcement of the rules
indefinitely if the opera-
tion were to continue op-
erating as is without seek-
ing the proper land use
designation and develop-
ment order.
However, Branch ul-
timately amended the
motion, giving the own-

the overcast sky for a time as men,
some carrying assault rifles, gath-
ered in the street in front of the bank.
Law enforcement trucks also hauled
in construction lights, apparently to
prepare in case the standoff lasted
into the night.II
The sight of the state police bomb
squad and SWAT team unnerved

Israelis begin

releasing 26


The Associated Press

JERUSALEM Israel be-
ganthe process of releasing
26 Palestinian prisoners
late Tuesday, an initial ges-
ture on the eve of renewed
Mideast negotiations.
Thousands of Palestin-
ians have spent time in Is-
raeli prisons since Israel's
capture of the West Bank,
Gaza and east Jerusalem
in 1967. They were .jailed
on-charges ranging from
throwing rocks to killing
civilians in .bombings and
other attacks.
The decision to release
the men has stirred an-
guish in Israel, particu-
larly among the relatives
of those killed in attacks.
Meanwhile celebrations
were planned in the Pal-
estinian territory, where
Palestinians generally view
the prisoners as heroes,
regardless of their acts, ar-
guing they made personal
sacrifices in the struggle
for independence.
The Israeli prison service
said buses carrying the in-
mates left the Ayalon jail
in central Israel late Tues-
day. Israel released them
late at night to prevent a
spectacle. Some protesters
tried in a symbolic move to
block the buses from leav-
ing the jail.
Most of the prisoners
were convicted of killings,
including Israeli civilians
and suspected Palestinian
collaborators, while others
were involved in attempted
murder or kidnapping.
The release of the prison-
ers was part of an agree-
ment brokered by U.S. Sec-
retary o.6f State John Kerry
to get Israel and the Pales-
tinians back to the table for
peace talks that had been
paralyzed since 2008. In
all, 104 convicts are to be'
released in four batches,
although their freedom is
contingent on progress in
peace talks. ....
Israelis and Palestinians
are to launch talks in Je-
rusalem on Wednesday,
following a preparatory
round two weeks ago in
Washington. The prisoner
release is parf of an agree-
ment to restart the talks af-
ter a five-year freeze.

Israel argued that it's
mainly building in areas it

Sought to be a familiar feel-

It was one year ago that
he entered his first season
with the Jahawks with a
high-profile transfer under
the center in Dayne Crist,
who played forWeis during

Expectations 'were high
that Crist cQuld lead the
Jayhawks to a dramatic
turnaround, but he instead
wound up getting benched

'Now, Weis has afiother

Weis recruited while he

about every third play."'
So 'far, Heaps has im-

wide receivers with his
football knowledge, abil-

"I look at Jake like a sec-

field," Pierson said.-- "He

tells you what's right and;
what's wrong. He knows
what they're doing, every:

The fact that Heaps

surprising even to the

Dear Annie: -Ive found a new way to geti
free food: dumpster diving. Several times
a week, a grdup of us go through the su-
permarket dumpster at night to see what
they've thrown away. Sometimes there's
nothing, but ,other- times, there's' great
stuff "" .,. .,
O. One night, Irfound nine -ars orcorn.
Another time, it was 23 packs of chicken.
I've found honeydew melons, cherries,
grapes, peppers, tomatoes, potatoes and
all sorts of other goodies. I thoroughly
boil the meat and poultry before eating
it, and I wash .the fruit and':pour boiling
water over it. It loses some color, but still
States sweet. I cook all vegetables.
SI can't figure out why this is so despised.
Why should I have to pay all that money
Sfor food when I can get it for nothing?
Dear New Yorlc Most people aren't will-.
iing to go through someone else's garbage,
in order to find edible food that isn't con-
taminated, rotten, partially.eaten or long
.past the. expiration date. And while we
know -some folks do this for economic
reasons or as a protest against the "sys-
otern," most- people findit distasteful and
demeaning. We think the owners' of gro-
ceries and restaurants are entitled to earn
a living, too, and we would hope that 'still-

edible food is donated to food pantries
whenever possible..

iDear Annie: I don't know how to get rid
of my pest of a neighbor. I moved to this
community three years ago, after my di-
vorce. I befriended "Joyce," a woman in
her 70s who lives two doors down.
Joyce won't leave me alone. When I en-
tertain my fiance or friends, she 'is sure
to walk over uninvited and interrupt us.
On several occasions, I've given her my
business card and asked her' to call first to'
make sure I'mn not.busy. .It hasn't worked.
She also drinks mywine, and even'though
she.has an extensive wine collection, she
never offers to replace the bottle she con-,
sumed at myplace.
Dear Prisoner, Joyce is lonely and either
clueless or deliberately obtuse. It s a kind-'
ness to include-her when you can, but you
also are entitled to entertain without her.
The next time Joyce, comes over unan-
nounced and unwanted, stop her at the .
door and say, "Joyce, I have company. You
will have to come back another time." If
she gets teary, outraged, pushy or any-
thing else, simply repeat that she will have
to come back another time.


In today's deal,. South
is in six no-trump. West
leads the'spade 1TO. De-
clarer wins with dummy's
king, then calls for a low
club, getting.ready to
claim. But when East dis-
cards a heart, how should
South react? -
South opened with a
strong and artificial two

plus clubs and eight-plus

four-diamond rebid was

wise choice given the bad

Declarer has only 11 top

West the club king now,
South will be forced-tb find
the diamond queen. In-,
stead, he should win with

club five. West must duck;
otherwise, South claims;.
Thenh, after winning the '
trick with dummy's queen,
declarer plays a spade
to his ace and runs the
diamond jack through
West Even if the finesse
.loses, South has three
spades, four hearts, three
diamonds and two club's

Team owner Chip Ganassi (left) talks with driver Juan Pablo Montoya before the NASCAR Brickyard 400 on July 25, 2010,.at
Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Indianapolis.

Ganassi parts ways with Montoya

The Associiated Press

Juan Pablo Montoya, one
of the most decorated driv-
ers in the world with an
Indianapolis 500 victory
and wins in Formula One,
NASCAR and the Rolex
24 Hours of Daytona, will
not have a chance to find
success in NASCAR with
longtime team owner Chip
The team owner in-
formed 'Montoya he will
not bring the Colombian
back for an eighth NASCAR
Season. Ganassi president
Steve Lauletta announced
the decision to the' team
Tuesday, multiple people
present for the announce-
ment told The Associated
Press on condition of ano-
nymity because Ganassi
does not comment on
driver contracts.
Montoya has been with"
Ganassi since 2006 when
he abruptly left Formula
One where he had sev-
en wins and 30 podiums
for NASCAR. It's his
second stint with the car

owner --the two teamed
together to win the 1999
CART championship and
2000 Indianapolis 500 be-
fore Montoya moved to Fl.
But results in NASCAR
have been sporadic. Mon-
toya has just two wins in
239 career starts and his
best" season finish was
eighth in 2009.
The poor showings led
Montoya. to rededicate
himself this season and
turn up his fitness, "I want
to (expletive), succeed in
this. I'm tired of sucking,"
he said before the Brick-
yard 400; in aneffort to see
if: he's been the problem
with the No. 42 Chevrolet.
Only there's no clear an-
swer what has been the
problem with Montoya,
the No. 42,team or the Ga-
nassi organization.
The program has been
through several rebuilds
since Montoya came
aboard, and it was a mid-
dle-of-the-road organiza-
tion when he signed on in
2006. It was Ganassi. that
was the draw for Montoya:

The two had.won 11 races
together in 1999 and 2000
in CART, including the
Their first NASCAR sea--
son was decent and gave
the organization a boost
with a win on the road
course at Sonoma, six
top-10s and rookie of the
year in 2007. But 2008 was
the first sign of trouble as
Montoya had two crew
chief changes in the first
16 races.
' Montoya made the Chase
for the Sprint Cup champi-
onship in 2009 with crew
chief Brian Pattie behind a
career-best 18 top-10s, and
he wasthird in points with,
six races to go in the sea-
son before fading to eigh th
in the final standings.'
He 'won on the road
course at Watkins Glen
in 2010, but Pattie was let
go before Indianapolis in
2011 for Montoya's fourth
crew chief change. The Ga-
nassi team began another
overhaul that winter and
Chris Heroy was hired as
Montoya's fifth crew chief

before 2012. That entire
season was. spent trying to
get the Ganassi cars up to
speed. ;
The pressure has been
on Montoya all this year
as he's been obviously rac-
ing for his job with hotshot
Ganassi developmental
driver Kyle Larson waiting
in the wings. But Larson
turned 21 just last month
and has a whopping 21'
Nationwide Series starts
under his belt.
While today's NASCAR
stars rave that Larson is the
real deal, many believe it's
far too soon to push him
into the Sprint Cup Series
and Ganassi himself has,
said repeatedly talk about
his future is just specula-
tion. Larson has 12 top-10
finishes in Nationwide and
-is eighth in the standings.
Others options for the
No. 42 ChevTolet could be
Kurt Busch, who drives for
single-car team Furniture
Row Racing, or possibly
Ryan Newman, who has
been let go from Stewart-
Haas Racing.

Dillon said Tuesday his
goal is to finish in the top
15 when he fills in forthe
injured Tony Stewart at
Sunday's NASCAR Sprint
Cup rice at Michigan In-

anything past that would
be a good day," Dillon said.

to getting in the car and
seeing what I can do."

says there's some added
pressure stepping in for
Stewart, someone he con-
siders one of his racing
But he said Stewart has
shown great confidence
in him driving the No. 14
"Tony texted to say, 'I'm
glad I have a good wheel
man in my racecar this
weekend.' That's pretty
special to me," Dillon said.

when Stewart will return
to racing, but in the mean-

could run more races for
Stewart while he contin-
ues to heal but nothing has
been decided.
SHR has not named a
driver for the Aug. 24 race
at Bristol.
Dillon said he's open to
the idea of running more
races for SHR, although he
wants to keep a balance

chances of landing a full-
time ride on the Sprint Cup.

"There are still some
things as far as experience
that I'm learning," Dillon

said. "I think it's a great op-
