Hills subdivision wants moreEMT money

Jackson County Commission-
ers are being asked to find about
$15,200 in the county budget to
help Compass Lake in the Hills
pay for a new EMS service which
has already likely saved three
lives, according to the subdivi-
sion's manager, John Laymon.
The subdivision started' the
medical service as a pilot pro-
gram in January, and at that
time asked'the county to pitch
in half the total estimated cost
of around $31,500. Commission-

ers declined immediate action,
but told Laymon to come back
with a report after it had been
in operation for a time, and to
talk again with the board about
participating. He turned up at
Tuesday's first-of-the month
commission meeting, repeating"
his earlier request and offering
statistics gathered in the first six
months of the program.
Laymon said that the EMS
service will be shut down if the
countycan't help. He said he feels
the county would be justified

Laymon talks to Jackson County
Commissioners about why he wants
the county to budget some moiey

community. Subdivision Fire Chief

stand by to lend their support and
provide information.

Bumpy intersection to be repaired

Intersection improvements
and several road resurfacing
projects will make up the bulk
of work that the Department of
Transportation is helping fund
in Jackson County in fiscal year
Meanwhile, the county con-
tinues to campaign for more
projects they want on the state's
bucket list in coming years. For
instance, county commission-
ers want money to have Fair-
view Road raised or otherwise
improved. Thai project is high
priori y these days, as recent
flooding kept the major evacu-
ation route well underwater for
several days.
One highlight on the existing
DOT work schedule will come
as a relief to drivers who regu-
larly travel to and fro on U.S. 90
in and out of Marianna eastward
of town. At an estimated cost of
just under $500,000, the rut-
ted, bumpy intersection of U.S.
90 and State Road 71 South in
Marianna should be smoothed

Fairview Road was closed on Aug. 19 after it was flooded during the
torrential rains. Jackson County is requesting that the road be added to
Florida Department of Transportation's work plan in hopes it will be raised
or otherwise improved.

out by June of next year.
In fact, State Road 71 will see
a major overhaul this year in
other sections as well. For in-
stance, turn lanes will be add-
ed to the point at which SR 71
North meets Blue Springs Road,
and some realignment may also
take place there. The estimated
cost of the project is at more



than $1 million.
SR 71 South will be resurfaced
all the way from the Calhoun
County line to the Malloy Plaza
in Marianna, a distance of al-
most nine miles. The project
actually got underway about
two weeks ago, with crews

Former U.S. Rep. Clay Shaw dies at 74

The Associated Press

U.S. Rep. Clay Shaw, a long-
time veteran of Congress
who helped then-Presi-
dent Bill Clinton achieve
his goal of ending "welfare
as we know it," has died
following a lengthy battle
with lung cancer.
: Shaw's family said in a
statement that he died
Tuesday night at Holy
Cross Hospital in Fort Lau-
derdale. He was 74. "
Shaw spent .26 years
in. Washington and was
among the first in a line'of
Republicans who helped
transform Florida from a
state dominated by just
Sone political party into the
battleground state that it is
He held positions in the
city of Fort Lauderdale,
including mayor, before
riding into office with
President Ronald Reagan
in 1980. He: survived sev-
eral spirited challenges to
his South Florida seat only
to finally lose his spot dttr-
ing a Democratic wavein
"Clay cherished his time
in the U.S. Congress repre-
senting the people of South

Florida," said his wife Emi-
lie Shaw in a statement.
"He was a devoted family
man setting a fine example
for our 15 grandchildren.
They willalway be proud
of Clay's love of country."
One of Shaw's standout
moments was his role in
sponsoring and helping
shepherd in 1996 a con-
tentious bill to reform the
nation's safety net known
as welfare.
The measure put in place
time and work require-
ments on welfare ben-
eficiaries and gave states
a much greater say in run-
ning the program.
Shaw, had worked on
previous'efforts to change
the program but that leg-
islation had stalled before
Republicans won con-
trol of Congress in 1994.
Clinton, however, twice
vetoed welfare overhaul
bills, prompting Shaw to
complain at one point that
the Democratic president
had "caved -in to the liberal
wing of his party,"'
SClinton, who, was run-
ning for re-election at the
dime, finally signed a third
overhaul into law in Au-
gust 1996 despite criticism
from some Democrats that

Shaw, right before'the "He spent a long career in

the "the degree of success plish, without partisanship
that we are going to have or rancor, what was best
is going to be a victory for for the people in his con-

gressional district," said
former Republican U.S.
Sen. George LeMieux, who
once interned for Shaw.
.S. Sen. Marco Rubio
said in a statement that he
was "impressed with Clay's
work on the causes he was
most passionate about."I
Eric Eikenberg,, who
served as Shaw's chief of.
staff ,for nearly four years,
called'Shaw a "true gentle-
man." and wvonderftl boss.
He recalled that while serv-
ing as 'Shaw's campaign
manager in 2000 that he
had failed to properly file
some election paperwork
which meant Shaw had to
pay a fee in orderto qualify
for re-election.
Instead of yelling at him,
Eikenberg recalled that he
said: "It's not going to be
your last mistake."
' Eikerberg said- Shaw
"really: took legislating to
heart" and did not actively
"He was more interested
in accomplishing legisla-
tive objectives than wor-
rying about what cable
television interview he
was going to be on," said
During his lengthy career
in Congress, Shaw also led

an effort to eliminate Social
Security earning penalties
for working seniors arid
he also pushed through
federal legislation to help
restore the Everglades.
Shaw survived close
calls including nearly los-
ing during 2000 election
that saw George W. Bush
win Florida and the
presidency by 537 votes
over Al Gore. Shaw, whose
district included parts of
south Florida that became
the target of Gore's push
for a recount, had to en-
dure his own recount be-
fore winning by less than
600 votes.
His political career was
finally derailed in 2006 by
Ron Klein who repeatedly
criticized Shaw over Medi-
care, the federal health care
prograin for the elderly.
Shaw was born in Mi-
ami aind earned degrees,
including a law degree,
from Stetson University
while also earning a MBA
from the University of
Alabama. He was elected
mayor of Fort Lauderdale
in 1975. ,
He is survived by his wife
Emilie, four children and.
15 grandchildren. He will
be buried'in Cuba, Ala.

Zimmerman probe on hold

until evidence surfaces

The Associated Press

LAKE MARY-The inves-
tigation of a domestic dis-
pute between George Zim-
merman and his estranged
wife is on hold because
there is no clear evidence
to charge anyone and nei-
ther side wants to press the
case, a police spokesman
said Wednesday.
That could change if new
evidence surfaces or tech-
nicians are able to extract
video that recorded the
dispute from Shellie Zim-
merman's smashed iPad,.
said Officer Zach Hudson.
Law enforcement analysts
are having difficulty ob-
taining the video because
the iPad is in bad shape, he
"We have concluded the
investigation with what
we have to work with right
now," Hudson said..
The dispute took place
Monday, just days after
Shellie Zimmerman filed
divorce papers. In the pa-
pers, Zimmerman, 26, said
she hadseparated from her
husband a month after he
was acquitted in the 2012
fatal shooting death of un-
armed black teen Trayvon
A police report on the
dispute released Wednes-
day shed some light on
howit started.
Shellie Zimmerman, ac-
companied by her father
and a friend, was remov-
ing some belongings from
the couple's house when
George Zimmerman, who
still liVes there, arrived
and began taking photos
of her. the report said. The
house is owned by Shellie
Zimmerman's parents.
George Zimmerman re-
corded the items she re-
moved from the house and
also the belongings she
had placed in her father's
truck, the report said.
SZimmerman said his wife
was;"taking property that
was not agreed upon and
her began taking :pictures
and recording the items,"
the report said.
Shellie Zimmerman then
took her iPad and started
recording her husband

taking photos of her, au-
thorities said. George Zim-
merman went in the house
and locked the front door.
What happened next is
in dispute.
Shellie Zimmerman told
investigators she heard her
father screaming from the
garage. Her father, David
Dean, told her that Zim-
merman had hit him in
the face, the report said.
She said her husband then
smashed her iPad. I
During a 911 call, she
also told police that George
Zimmerman was threaten-
ing her and her father with
a gun. Later, however, She
said she had not seen a
. gun. Police said they found
no gun, but that Shellie
Zimmerman's father "did
have a swollen red mark
on the bridge of his nose."
At a news conference
late Wednesday, Shellie
Zimmerman was with her
attorney, Kelly Sims, but
didn't answer any ques-
tions about -what hap-
pened. Sims cited the on-
going divorce proceedings
and probation as the rea-
son. Sims defended his cli-
ent's initial assertions that
her husband was armed.
Sims said Shellie Zim-
merman found packaging
for a new holster in the
trash 'that day and has al-
Ways known him to carry
"Bottom line, Shellie had
every reason to believe
there was a gun," Sims

Sims said his client is
hoping to move on as soon
as possible.
"The only thing Shellie
wants out of the end of this
relationship is for it to end
with a whimper and not a
bang," Sims said.
eIn the report George Zim-
mermar told investigators
that his wife had told him
she was done picking up
her- belongings. He said he
locked the front door and
wentto the garageto close it
when Shellie Zimmerman's
father confronted him, ac-
cording to the report.
Shellie Zimmerman's
father threw down his
glasses. and charged his
son-in-law, according to
George Zimmerman's ac-
count.. Shellie Zimmer-
man at some point hit her
husband with her iPad,
George Zimmerman told
Police officers asked
George Zimmerman to
remove his shirt so they
could see if there were
marks on his back. "There
were no signs of trauma,
redness or marks of any
kind in the area where he
said he was struck," the re-
port said.
As many as seven people
were atthe house and they
all have been questioned
by investigators, Hud-
son said. The friends said
they didn't see what hap-
pened and footage from
the house's' surveillance
cameras was inconclusive,
Hudson added.

Review: Slick iOS 7 shines on Apple's new iPhones

The Associated Press

1if. One' of the best
tings about Apple's lat-
est iPhones is the slick
new iOS 7 software that
runs the devices. But that
soupedup o operating sys-
tem could end up hurt-
ing sales because the free
software upgrade will also
work on iPhones released
since 2010; giving owners
of the older models less
incentive ,to buy Apple's
Perhaps unwittingly,
even Apple's software boss
Craig Federighi alluded
to this potential problem
while he was bragging
about iOS 7 at the conm-
pany's unveiling of its new
phones Tuesday. He pre-
dicted that anyone who
elects to install the soft-
ware will feel "like they're
getting an all-new device."
I understood what
Federighi meant once I
was able to see the iOS
7's improvements in ac-
tion on Apple's two new
iPhones, the 5C and the
5S. Although Apple an-
nounced iOS 7 at a con-
ference three months ago,
Tuesday marked the first
time the company allowed
reporters to experience
the software hands-on.
Although the iPhone 5C
is less expensive than its
predecessor, the iPhone

look fancier than previous
generations. As an iPhone

envious until I remenm-
bered that I'll be able to
spiff up my device, too,
when the software is re-
leased on Sept. 18. The op-
erating system will work
on the iPhone 4 and later
models, iPad 2s and sub-
sequent versions, and the
iPod Touch that came out
late last year.

TE -i.S'h),i nlT[, : : ,;
Members of the media review the new iPhone 5c during a new product announcement at
Apple headquarters on Tuesday, Sept. 10. in Cupertino. Calif. Apple's latest iPhones will come
in a bevy of colors and two distinct designs, one made of plastic and the other that aims to be
"the gold standard of smartphones" and reads your fingerprint.

real-world counterparts.
SThe icons instead are flat-
ter and more colorful.
Any significant change
in design typically upsets
users familiar with the old
way of doing things, but
I suspect the complaints
about iOS 7 will be muted
. unless there are some ter-
rible bugs in the software
that weren't evident dur-
ing the brief time that I
was given to experiment.
I am fairly certain most
people who download
iOS 7 are 'going to be
pleased. The software
makes it easier to navigate
around an iPhone and
adds some compelling
new features. ,, ....':
SThe additions include
the ability, to stream mu-
sic through an advertis-
ing-supported- service
called iTunes Radio and
five free apps that used to
cost consumers anywhere
from 99 cents to $4.99
apiece. The free apps are
Apple's photo-editing tool,
iPhoto, and video-editing
program, iMovie, as well
as work-oriented apps
called Pages, Numbers
and Keynote. .
Apple doesn't appear, to
be removing any popular
apps built into the oper-
ating system, as best as I

could tell. The company
did that last year when it
replaced Google's map-
ping app with its own nav-
igation system only to be
ridiculed for misguiding
users with shoddy direc-
tions. Apple isn't bringing
back Google Maps with
,iOS 7, but it is promising
that its alternative is get-
ting better. .f
The softwRare upgrade
also will make it easier to
take better pictures on the
iPhone and automatically
sort photos into different
categories to denote par-
ticular events. I particu-
larly liked a feature that
lets you control how the
camera operates by tog-
gling between options at
the bottom of the screen
with the swipe of a finger.
Once the camera is' open
in IOS 7, the choices in-
clude taking square, pan-
oramic or standard photo.
The bottom-of-the screen
controls also include an
option to switch to video
When taking a picture
in iOS 7, photographers
can also choose a filter
to use as they snap the
photo rather than waiting
to.touch up the shot later.
/When shooting video,
shots can be zoomed in

while recording. I can't do
any of that on my iPhone 5
because it is still powered
by iOS 6.
The new system also
makes it easier to see and
scroll through apps more
quickly by clicking twice
on the home button. When
this action is performed in
iOS 6, the iPhone apps are
spread across a horizontal
row at 'the bottom of the
screen. Do the same thing
in iOS 7, and the apps are
transbfornfed into large
tiles displayed horizontal-
ly across the center of the
screen in an effort to help
users do more multitask-
ing on the iPhone.
Apple is also making it
easier to access frequent-
ly used controls such as
an airplane mode by en-
abling users to pull up the
panel from the bottom of
the display screen instead
of finding and pressing a
settings option.
Other than the new
software, the iPhone, 5C
isn't anything special, as
one might expect from a
cheaper phone.
The only thing that re-
ally distinguishes the 5C
from the iPhone 5 is that
it's housed in plastic in-
stead of aluminum. Some
consumers will no doubt

Yahoo: 5 SEC stars received payouts during career

College football programs
from the talent-rich Southeast-.

Yahoo Sports reported
Wednesday that five SEC'players

secondary, understands Manziel:
will make plays, praises his pass-
ing ability and instincts and calls
him "a fierce competitor." He also

said he's never seen him rattled in
a game. .
Saban stressed discipline as a
keyto defending Manziel and said
Tide defenders have to faithfully
abide by "scramble rules" and
stay focused as receivers change
their routes based on where he
heads in breaking away from
pressure. Saban said Aggies re-
ceivers have a knack for that and
Manziel is instinctive on when to
run or throw.
"You're not going to make him
be a pocket passer, because if
someone's not open, he doesn't
throw them the ball," the coach

said. "He's goingto extend the play
to run or to make a play throwing
the ball. I think throwing the ball
first for him is what he does. He
will run and he can run, he's an
effective runner. He's really fast."
Then there's the temptation
for a defensive back to lose sight
of his man andpeek at Manziel.
Manziel was sacked four times
in last season's game but still ran'
for 92 yards. Clinton-Dix said you
have to resist the notion that "Oh,
maybe I can go get him."
"That's what coach Saban talks
about: Never take your eyes off-
your man," Clinton-Dix said.
"The minute you do, he'll pop
out of the ground and you know
Johnny Football will throw the
ball 40, 50 yards and complete a
pass. It's very important that we
stay oni our keys and our assign-
The most notable time it hap-
pened last season was when
Manziel rolled right, bobbled the
ball, then reversed course to avoid
several 'Alabama defenders and
hit Ryan Swope in the end zone.
Tide safety Vinnie Sunseri,
whose responsibility -was the
middle of the field on that play,
admits he "paid attention to my
eyes and not my brain." Sunseri's
takeaway: "Don't take your eyeboff
your man or coach Saban going
to kll you."

SMiles,, who spoke on a Southeastern

said he isproud of his time as head coach

"the idea that somebody would charac-

anything but right and correct." ,
He said, "Every guy was encouraged to

Miles said he and his staff did nothing
wrong at OSU.
"Did we work hard? You betcha'. Did
we make tough decisions about starting
lineups? You betcha'." But every guy was
encouraged to get his degree and to stay

"I can tell you that staff, family and

Miles did not take any questions about

Annie's Mailbox

Dear Annie; My dad's cousin,"'John," is
an internist from another state. During
my younger sister's wedding weekend,
Dr.John ,stayed with us. Two days before
the wedding. my sister was stressed and
couldn't sleep. John Offered her Ambien.
The pill was blue and in ablister pack."
He gaveher two,' even though the label.
states you shouldn't take them unless
you can getsixhoursg'of sleep.My sister
absolutely didn't have time for that.
'I have a prescription for Ambien, and
it's white. I have no idea what John gave
my sister. At the hairdresser's the next '
day, she was-totally zoned out.'Isn't it
wrong for physicians to dispense.such
medications without a prescription?
There have been several incidents in
the past where John has given prescrip-
tion medications to my family members

S ,Bridge.

H.E. Martz said, "He who builds a better mouse-
trap these days runs into material shortages, pat-
ent-infringement suits, work stoppages, collusive
bidding, discount discrimination and taxes."
At, the bridge table, when your contract appears
hopeless, be a man, not amouse, and see if you
can trap an opponent into helping you. South'
blazes into six hearts despite West's one-spade
overcall. West leads the spade king. After winning
with his ace, how should declarer continue?
After North made a limit raise, South bid what
hehoped he could make. (Yes, a tournament
player would have treated North's three hearts as
pre-emptive; he would have cue-bid two spades
to show heart support and at least game-invita- '
tional values.) .
S.At first glance, Southhas two unavoidable spade
losers. He also has only 11 top tricks: one spade,
-six hearts, one diamond and three clubs. Yes,
the bidding tells declarer that East started with a
singleton spade, but how does that help?,
Declarer cashes his diamond ace and heart
queen. When the trumps are 2-1, South plays
4. trump to the dummy, ruffs the last diamond,
unblocks his two club honors, returns to dummy
with a trump, and discards a spade on the club ,
queen. Then comes the taxing play: Declarer .
leads dummy's last club, and when East follows
suit, South does not ruff; instead, he discards
another spade.
tEast is trapped. He has only diamonds left, and
Son this trick, declarer sluffs his last spade and
ruffs on the board.

without seeing them. He once sent my
dad expired ointments f6r a rash that
turned out to be shingles. When my
mother had pneumonia, he told her to
take flu medication. He didn't examine
them, nor did he write a prescription.
What do you think I should do?.

Dear Furious: First of all, Ambien can
come in different colors, depending 6n
the dosage. We assume these are sample
Drugs that John happens to have handy.
The real issue is that'your family is, eager
to take advantage of John's ability to
provide such medication for free ahd
without needing to see their regular phy-
sician. They have the option not to follow
his advice or take what he offers, but they
prefer the convenience.

Slower than what Tony normally drives, but it handles well.

Stewart's gross injury

Tony Stewart's injury was so gruesome, he says
looking at the wound area four weeks after the
compound fracture makes him feel like he will pass
Stewart met with the media at the Stewart-Haas
Racing shop on Sept. 3 and didn't pull any punches
when describing what happened to him following
his crash in a sprint-car event.
The gruesome information provided by the
42-year-old driver was given in drips and drabs. It
started with the three-time NASCAR champion say-
ing, "This is definitely the worst injury I've ever had
in my life and racing career." .
Stewart broke both bones in the lower half of
his right leg after crashing Aug. 6 at the half-mile
Southern Iowa Speedway in Oskaloosa. Stewart
said he came through a cloud of dust and was
headed toward another car in the racing lane. He
swerved to avoid direct contact, but the front of his
car was badly damaged.
"I started unbuckling my helmet and undoing my
belts and it just felt weird that I couldn't (move);
my right leg felt numb and I thought I must have '
just banged 'it against the frame rail or something
and it went numb," he said.
When he looked at-his leg, he saw it was askew.
"My leg was inside my uniform so I really didn't
' fully understand what the extent of the injury was
until after the first surgery," he said.
Stewart said he's squeamish when it comes to
medical procedures. He says he looks at the ceiling
during a simple blood draw. And yet since his two
surgeries, he-has been compelled to look at the
wound site with regret.
"I literally have damned near passed out at every
doctor visit I've been to so far with the surgeon,"

Beach News-Journal's

he said. "I go into it with the attitude that I'm not
going to look at my leg, and as soon as they get the
wrapping off of it, I'm like. 'I've got to look.'
"Then I spend the rest of the time sitting there
with a wet washcloth on my forehead trying to
regain consciousness.

You won't be seeing Kelly Heaphy at the race
track any time soon. Kelly who? Heaphy was the
woman who slapped Truck Series driver Max Papis
square on the face after a road race held in Canada
two weeks ago. Heaphy has been described as
Mike Skeen's girlfriend. Skeen was the driver of the
No. 6 Chevy, which had last-lap contact with Papis'
Chevy. Heaphy was with Sharp-Gallaher Racing,
but not an employee of the team, so basically, she
was a race fan. NASCAR has banned Heaphy from
attending any NASCAR race until further notice and
fined her $2.500, possibly the first race fan ever
penalized by the sanctioning body. "We absolutely
do not condone actions such as these from anyone
associated with our organization," said team owner
Eddie Sharp Jr..

It's getting fast and furious in NASCAR"s annual
"silly season.'" The latest veteran (victim?) shown
the door is Jeff Burton, who will be moving out of
Richard Childress Racing after the 2013 season,
reportedly to make room for Ryan Newman.
Furniture Row Racing is looking for a replace-
ment for outgoing Kurt Busch and talked to Juan
Pablo Montoya, who will depart Ganassi Racing at
season's end.

Disappointment: Martin Truex Jr.
First one out: Danica Patrick
Don't be surprised if: Kahne be-
gins his march to the champion-
ship by winning at Chicagoland.

Clint Bowyer losing his grip ... or
taking one for the team?
Would Danny Sullivan be proud?
Big difference. When Danny Sullivan
did his big loopty-loop at the 1985 In-
dianapolis 500, he certainly didn't do
it on purpose. When Clint Bowyer went
into his slide Saturday night at Rich-
mond, we're guessing it didn't exactly
sneak up and catch him off-guard.
What should we call it?
In '85, Danny Sullivan went on
to victory, so his slide was quickly
dubbed the "Spin to Win." Rhyming
took precedence over the fact Sullivan
definitely didn't need that spi6 in
order to win. Since Bowyer's spin isn't
something NASCAR wants becoming
part of the officially licensed lore, don't
expect "Spin for a Friend" T-shirts to
go on sale soon.
Oh, baby, how close was that?
A tad bit closer than usual, but the.
streak is alive: NASCAR baby'deliver-
ies never (NEVER!) interfere with
the racin'. Either through amazing
coincidence or the miracles of modern
obstetrics, NASQAR babies are usually
born on' Mondays or Tuesdays, but
Jimmie'Johnson's second daughter
was born last Friday well, very early
Friday, at about 2 a.m. We're guessing
they were pushing (so to speak) for a
Thursday rollout, but she must've got-
ten delayed in the tech garage.
