County eyeing


developments

N County leaders hope moves

will stimulate local economy


By BILL GAMBLING
bgamblin@srpressgazette.com
Economic development
is on the. minds of the Santa
Rosa County Commissioners
and they appear to be ready
to do something about it.
During their last meeting
as a whole on May 8 com-
missioners approved an
amendment to the ordinance
allowing developers to pay
transportation impact fees
when they obtain a building
permit instead of how the
ordinance read at the time
they are awarded a.develop-.
ment order.
Developers apparently
have seen their project go on
hold as banks would not go
the amount to. invest in the
project and the impact fees
without a little more collater-
: : al.
This move will allow the
development of the property
and hopefully see more con-
tractors return to work.
All commissioners
agreed something needs to
be done and more specific
wording on the transporta-
tion impact fee ordinance
will be addressed during a
workshop on May 20 at 9
a.m. at the County
Commission Chambers.
A few wording issues
came to mind as
Commissioner Tom Stewart
wanted to address the recon-
ditioning of existing build-
ings and what could be done

there concerning impact
fees.
Commissioners also
approved the purchase of
three acres in the Santa Rosa
Industrial Park by Prestige
Fire Sprinkler, Inc. based on
a contract for sale which
includes a performance
based mortgage with incen-
tives.
More economic issues
and their impact on
Escambia and Santa Rosa
County were discussed dur-
ing a joint meeting of both
county commission boards
back on April 28 in
Pensacola.
The first major item was
a recommendation made by
the County Attorney's Office
that the Board adopt a Joint
Resolution of requesting the
support of Congressman Jeff
Miller to sponsor federal leg-
islation to release the restric-
tions on conveyance of prop-
erty on Santa Rosa Island
(SRI).
The deed to SRI con-
veyed from the United States
of' America to Escambia
County in 1947 permits the
County to lease but not con-
vey the property.
Enlisting Congressman
Miller's support would be
the first step in developing a
plan ,to release the restriction
and convey the County's
interest in Navarre Beach to
Santa Rosa County and the

By JENI SENTER
jsenter@srpressgazette.com
According to the 2008
Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test (FCAT)
Writing+ results released on
Thursday, a greater percent-
age of Florida students are
writing at or above grade
level and Santa Rosa County
high schools have outscored
the state average by 19
points.
"These results are evi-
dence that the tremendous
efforts of our teachers have a
direct and positive impact on
our children's futures," .said
Education Commissioner
Eric J. Smith. "It is through
their selfless commitment to
student success that our state
has been able to experience
the phenomenal academic
growth that we have seen in
the last decade."
The mean writing score
for Florida tenth graders was
302. Santa Rosa County
School's tenth graders had an
average score of 321.
Each area high school
improved its score as com-
pared to the 2007 scores.
Central / High School
Principal Kenny Owens
reports the school had an
11% increase in 'the tenth
grade scores and a 25%
increase for eighth grade on
the writing portion of FCAT.
"This year 78% of the
eighth graders who took
FCAT Writing scored 3.5 or
higher.

Church gets big offering


By BILL GAMBLING
bgamblin@srpressgazette.comrn
Milton Baptist Church's
Pastor Rev. David Spencer
was amazed how quickly'
the $1.8 million donation
went, but it was definitely
put to good use.
"There were plenty of
needs and I was surprised at
how fast the money went,"
said Spencer about the
anonymous donation. "I was
approached a few months
ago about the donation and
worked out a proposal."
When reality came the
plan was implemented by
paying off the $600,000 still
owed on their $4.5 million
sanctuary.


Started plans to build a
church office complex as
well as help with the
churches food mission as
well as other efforts.
"When I was
approached about this I was
asked where do you see or
need," said Spencer. "So
this wasn't very hard at all
with the various agencies
we try to help and our large
food ministry.
"Our membership is a
good, generous church so
this wasn't hard at all."
Spencer pointed out
around three or four times a
year he is approached about
a donation like this, but he
never counts it until the


church receives it.
"In the 12 years I have
been here this has happened
several times," said Spencer.
"This was quite a significant
donation so I was in a dream
wondering if it was really
going to happen."
Members of the church
currently located on
Caroline St., which was
formed in 1845, are prepar-
ing for a mission trip to
Indiana to help work on
projects around the
Indianapolis area as well as
continuing their local efforts
on things like the Habitat
for Humanity houses.
"We are tremendously
blessed by the people in the


church," said Spencer. "But
the thing about the church is
there is always a need that
we can address."
Spencer told the church
about the generous donation
this past Sunday during the
morning worship service.
With all of the projects
the church is involved in
Spencer pointed out mem-
bers will still be expected to
continue with their regular
tithing.
"The church will still
need regular givers," said
Spencer. "But this is an out-
standing church family and
I have no doubt they will
continue their regular
tithing."


Highway upgrades continue


By JENI SENTER
jsenter@srpressgazette. comr
The Santa Rosa County
Engineering Department has
started safety upgrades on
Highway 90.
"Upgrades from Anna
Simpson Road eastward to
Avalon Boulevard include
the construction of new turn
lanes, the retrofitting of
existing median openings
with directional traffic
islands, and the installation
of drainage improvements
throughout the project," says
Public Information Officer
Joy Tsubooka.
Work began April 18,
and will continue for 8
weeks with signs posted
-accordingly.
Tsubooka says there will
be no lane closures during
daylight hours and work will
be staged so all median
openings will not closed at
the same time.


"While this project is
within the FDOT right of
way, it is designed and
administered by the Santa
Rosa County Engineering
Department," she says.
The project will make
the existing median opening
at Anna Simpson Road direc-
.tional, prohibiting eastbound
movement onto Highway 90.
A new directional medi-
an opening and left turn lane
will be constructed at
Morningside Lane, prohibit-
ing westbound movements
onto Highway 90. This open-
ing will replace an existing
opening just east of
Morningside that will be
removed.
A new eastbound left
turn lane at Van Horn Road
will be constructed with the
full access median opening
remaining.
The existing westbound

SPEAK OUT


Monday, 3:12 p.m.
Yes, this is Jessica. I am
calling about the three-tier
program that the county is
thinking about doing for the
Santa Rosa County School
System. That is the main rea-
son I took my child out of
Santa Rosa and she is in
Escambia now. I don't
understand why students
should be affected. Take and
cut some of the school board
position and use that money
for the schools. This is
ridiculous. There is no rea-
son why this should be going
on.
What about the students
who go to work after school
or participate in extra curric-
ular activities? This is totally
ridiculous and should not be
going on.
If this does happen I
promise you people will take
their kids out of Santa Rosa
Schools to Escambia County
or home school them or there
will be drop outs. Thank you.
Editor's Note: Santa
Rosa County Board
Members have approved the
three-tier plan for next year
already and talk from the
Escambia County Board of
Education is they will not
allow the transfer of students
from Santa Rosa County due
to their own budget concerns
for next year that could force
a reduction of teaching staff
positions.,

Monday, 12:51 p.m.
Hi, this is Ann. And
instead.of building more jails
why not provide the counsel-
ing while they are in jail
instead of when they get out
and have no driver license or
jobs to get to the counseling
they need. It would just make
sense to me.
They keep saying they
have no job or no driver's
license and then they get put
back in jail for not paying
child support because they
were in jail in the first place.
This is a vicious circle we
need to rethink in the first
place.

Monday, 10:17 a.m.
My name is Celia. When
the county is short on funds
the commissioner looks to
the average citizen for a
penny here or a penny there
and upping their property
tax. Isn't there a way to peti-


tion to cut their pay? They
make $50,000 to $60,000 a
year for a part-time job.
They make more than a
county employee with 20
years or more full-time. The
county offices could pitch in
and pinch a penny here or
there to help out too.
Editor's Note: The last
time this will be stressed is
that the county commission-
er pay and other salaries are
set by the legislature in
Tallahassee.

Sunday, 2:32 p.m.
I just have to give a big
thank you to the Santa Rosa
Historical Society and those
responsible for the Hank
Locklin Tribute on Saturday
evening. It was truly won-
derful and my family and I
had a great time. Hank is a
true legend. Thank you, Joe
Annon and family.

Saturday, 6:42 p.m.
This is James. The City
of Milton needs to cut the
shrubs and hedges near Tops
TV. You can't even see to
make a turn without pulling
out into the path of a car. It is
getting very dangerous. I
wish they would also outlaw
cell phones in public places
and everything. They are
becoming a public nuisance.
You can't even get up and
down a grocery store aisle
without people talking on
their cell phones.

Friday, 2:31 p.m.
Hi, my name is Peggy.
We have over 75 to 100 den-
tists in Santa Rosa County.
At the present time only one
is seeing Medicaid patients
on a part-time basis. I am
ashamed of our dentists. It is
time for them to step up to
the plate like the other type
of doctors are doing in the
community and meet the
needs of people who cannot
afford dental work. It is time
to step up and meet the
needs of the community. I
implore you to ask your den-
tist if they are seeing
Medicaid patients. If each
dentist of these 75 to 100
would see two Medicaid
patients a month, which
would not break the bank,
then these people would
have better health and teeth.
Aren't you ashamed of your-
self?


You may Speak Out any time, day or night. Just call
our Speak Out line at 623-5887 and leave your mes-
sage.

Teen d rivi ng Sa y-May24th,2008

4 ACRE PROPERTY
with DEEDED BOAT SLIP

course gets $29)900


scheduled


Sheriff Wendell Hall of
the Santa Rosa Sheriff's
Office has recently initiated
a "teen driving course" to
help reduce accidents caused
by teenage drivers. This pro-
gram is based on the star-
tling statistics in America
that shows vehicular acci-
dents are the number one
cause of death for young
adults. The course outline
covers such topics as vehic-
ular maintenance, vehicular
'dynamics, aggressive and
impaired driving.
A driving course will be
arranged and the young driv-
ers will be required to tra-
verse the course in a series
of practical exercises to
include braking, swerving
and recovering their vehicle
from spin outs. This class
will be under the direct
supervision of instructors
from the sheriff's office. The
program is twelve (12) hours
long and the first class will
be conducted on June 13th
from 1700-2100 at the Santa
Rosa Sheriff's Office train-
ing room for the classroom
portion of the course and
June 14th from 0800-1600 at
NAS Whiting Field for the
practicum portion. Facilities


at Whiting Field will be used
for forward and reverse ser-
pentine, threshold braking,
figure eight, evasive maneu-
ver and backing. The stu-
dent's personal automobile
will be used during the
entire course. Each student
will need to be a licensed
driver (no learners permit
allowed), between the age of
16-18, a Santa Rosa resident
(out of county residents will
be accepted if class is not
full), and have all permis-
sion forms filled out and
returned to the training divi-
sion (or to the instructor the
night of the first meeting).
Each student will also need
to provide their own motor
vehicle and dress appropri-
ately (no tank tops, flip-
flops, "short-shorts", etc.).
On the second day of the
training, each participant
should bring sun screen,
sunglasses, a hat (if wanted)
and drinks. An hour lunch
will be taken around 11:30
"on your own", with class
commencing an hour later.
The class will be limited to
the first ten students who
apply. For further informa-
tion please contact Cindy
Sarver at 983-1236.

Owens. "We have a ways to
go, but we are doing great.
The Literacy Team at Central
High has increased our suc-
cess dramatically. Our writ-
ing score has jumped and we
think all of our subject scores
will reflect the positive
trend."
Central High had the
most improved score, up 27
points from last year's score
of 276 to the 2008 score of
303.
Owens reports the scores
for the remaining sections of
FCAT (Math, Science, and
Reading) will not be in for
several more weeks.
The area high school
with the highest FCAT
Writing+ score was Jay High
with a 20 point increase over
last year. In 2007 Jay High
scored a 306 and. this year
the score is 326.
Milton High raised last
years' score of 292 by 18
points to bring the 2008
scores to 310 points.
Pace High, with a 2008
score of 323, raised its writ-
ing score four points higher
than last year.
Beginning at 6 a.m. on
Tuesday, May 13, parents
may view their students'
scores via the FCAT Parent


Network at www.fcatparent-

provided by their school.
School districts and schools
can access electronic copies
of their reports now. Printed
reports, including individual
student reports, school

The writing portion of
the Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test (FCAT)
combines a writing essay,
used since 1994, with multi-
ple-choice items. The test is
now known by a relatively
new name, FCAT Writing+
(plus). The machine-scored,
multiple-choice section of
the FCAT Writing+ was first
added in 2006 and represents
a comprehensive assessment
"of writing knowledge and
skills.
On April 15, 2008, the
State Board approved the
Commissioner's recommen-
dation to remove the multi-
ple-choice questions from
the FCAT Writing+ tests at
all grades and to delay the
use of the Grade 10 test as a
graduation requirement for

There were two reasons
prompting this recommenda-
tion, budget constraints and a
technical consideration.
During the budget reduction
process, all testing programs
were carefully scrutinized,
and it was determined that
the multiple-choice ques-
tions were something that
could be removed without
affecting state or federal
accountability systems.
Technical concerns
about the use of the Grade 10
Writing+ test for graduation
purposes also contributed to
the final decision. The rec-
ommendation in April was
important for minimizing the
impact of these technical
concerns, on students. The
rule-making process will be
implemented to formalize
this recommendation.
In the school grades cal-
culation, schools earn one
point, for each percent of stu-
dents who meet high stan-
dards by scoring a 3.5 or
higher on the essay portion
of the writing assessment.

Achievement Level scores
are based on the total scale
score. Students also receive
five sub-scores. The first
sub-score is for the essay
portion of the FCAT
Writing+. It is scored on a
scale from one to six, with
six being the highest score.
The other four sub-
scores are for each writing
element assessed: focus,
organization, support, and
conventions. These four sub-
scores are based on the mul-
tiple-choice questions and
are the number of points
earned in each area.

How fortunate we are to have a lady in
our midst who has and is continuing to make
so forceful a difference in the cultural enrich-
ment of our and our neighbors' lives. For years

everyday lives. Major among her vast contribu-
tions have been the services performed in con-
nection with the General Federation of

COLLECTOR'S CORNER by ROBERT G. MCCLURE
As your Santa Rosa County Tax Collector, I would like to take this opportunity to make
sure that everyone is aware of the forthcoming online tax certificate sale. You may
access information regarding this sale on our web site of www.robertmcclure.com.
This is your Santa Rosa County Tax Collector's second year of conducting the certifi-
cate sale online. This auction method is beneficial to both
property owners and bidders. Bidders are able to place
bids via the internet 24 hours a day from the opening of the
sale on May 14th until the sale closes at 9 a.m. on Friday,
May 30th. The online sale benefits property owners " '
because the interest rate accruing on their delinquent taxes
is more competitive and therefore oftentimes lower due to
an increased number of bidders. The unique facet of this
auction is that bids are placed not by dollars, but rather by
interest rates. Also, it is considered a reverse auction as
the lowest interest rate bid, as opposed to the highest, is
awarded the certificate. Bidding begins at the maximum interest rate as allowed by
law of 18% and proceeds downward in .25% increments. Last year there were 4,175
certificates sold at an average interest rate of 4.12% representing $4,854,029.12 of
gross taxes. Be sure to visit our web site of www.robertmcclure.com for additional
details about the tax certificate sale and procedures for registering as a bidder. Please
do not hesitate to call us at 983-1800 if you have any questions whatsoever concern-
ing your taxes. ,,O
As always,.thank you for allowing me and my staff to serve you. , .-

OUR VIEW


What should



we do?

In the Merle Haggard song, "Are the Good Times
Really Over for Good" he poses a question.
"Are we rolling down hill like a snowball headed for
hell?"
The question came to mind after looking at today's
Sheriff's report.
Today's report will shock some while bringing the ire
of parents because their child's name may be there.
Before you parents rush to give us a call, let's offer
some clarification on the law.
Commission of a felony by a juvenile makes their
name and crimes public information.
The alarming part is these juveniles are not 15, 16, or
17, but'are ages eight, nine, and 11. F
We blew the calculator up more than once double-
checking the dates.
Welcome to the new world.
Space may be the final frontier to Star Trek fans, but
the true final frontier is surviving in our neighborhoods as
juveniles run amuck of the system because there isn't a
true system. And we're not talking about a stolen hubcap
or a broken window.
According to the felony report from the Sheriff's W e
office, the charges are burglary of a dwelling or structure
causing over $1,000 in damages, criminal mischief of
$1,000 or more, and preventing or hindering fire fighters
or equipment.
Sounds surreal, but we checked the information and
Rod Serling was not at the typewriter on this one.
Kids will be kids, but this goes way beyond anything
"child-like."
This is utterly outrageous. It is easy to point the finger
at parents, but if.these "children" have graduated to
felony charges this early it would easy to say the children
are quite familiar with the justice system.
The biggest problem we face as a community-and a " -
society-is how to fix a juvenile justice system in such
utter disrepair.
The report does not say if this trio was turned over to
their parents, but all three were booked and released the
same day.
Why?
Shouldn't these charges warrant some type of incar-
ceration?
And we wonder why young people deal drugs.
The reasoning behind a dealer getting children to -
push drugs is because our justice system will just give
them a slap on the wrist and turn them loose to go back -
out on the streets where they can do the same thing all
over again.
Chance after chance we give these youth because we
are a society of second chances, but the line needs to be - -
drawn somewhere. Have we grown so'tired as a society * -
that we have become numb to what children do?
Must Milton, Pace, Jay, or Central (Allentown)
become a Columbine or Heath High School before we
wake up? .
For the sake of our community, we need to put our
foot down and expect more from the justice system that o
deals with these children.
A slap on the wrist or a polite word and forgiving
nature doesn't seem to be doing the job. The criminals
keep getting younger and younger.
The only reason Billy the Kid or Baby Face Nelson
were given those names was not because of their age, but
how they looked.
We're actually starting to wonder, with this down-
ward trend, are the good times are really over for good?

Flag. ceremony thanks
FM: Bill Bledsoe
Milton, Fla.

Dear Editor,

The Milton Benevolent
Cemetery Board expresses
sincere appreciation to all
those individuals and
organizations who attend-
ed the Flag Dedication
Ceremony at the historical
burial ground on April 19.
Among those were the
Marine Corps League,
American Legion, Am-
Vets, Pensacola Young
Marines, the 842nd Signal
Battalion of Milton, and
those whom I might for-
get.
Thanks to Captain Rick
Sadsad, Commanding


Officer, Whiting NAS, the
Navy Color Guard, NAS
Whiting, Lt. Col.
Glassman, Executive
Officer of MATSG-021,
NAS Pensacola, retired
State Attorney Curtis
Golden and wife Mary for
*their encouraging compli-
ments.
An inspiring rendition
of TAPS was given by a
trumpeter from Milton
High School Band as the
POW-MIA flag was
raised.

Second chance to say
sorry
FM: Jessica Brand
Milton, Fla.

Dear Editor,


I understand my origi-
nal letter of apology was
unacceptable. My letter
was not supposed to be an
explanation of my behav-
ior and/or my actions. I
tried to justify and ration-
alize my action when all
and all I should have just
apologized.
After reconsidering my
original letter and the
order I received from the
courts. I would appreciate
the opportunity to resub-
mit my letter of apology.
I am sorry my actions
resulted in a waste of
time, money and
resources for the detec-
tives, police officers, and
Santa Rosa County as a
whole. I also apologize


for any worry or problems
I caused the rest of the
community.
I understand I acted
irresponsibly and could
have diverted the police's
attention from more
important crimes. Also I
appreciate the opportunity
to fulfill my sanction out-
side of incarceration.
Although I have spent
my 90 days, not being
incarcerated allowed me
to be with my three chil-
dren.
Again, I am very sorry
and I appreciate the
opportunity to resubmit
my apology letter. I want
to thank Santa Rosa
County Sheriff'9 Office,
Judge Bilbrey, and the
probation office.

OOPS ALLEY and Back Alley Grill one of area's most popular recreation, dining, entertainment destinations


By OBIE CRAIN
ocrain@srpressgazette.com

Forty thousand plus
square feet of raw adventure!
However you characterize
it, there's no better way to
describe the Back Alley Grill
and OOPS ALLEY in Pace
where for the last four years
individuals, couples, and
families have been having the
time of their lives. It's a place
where there's always some-
thing to do, guaranteed!
In fact, Eat, Drink, and
Play! is the theme of its life!
Whether you would like to
perfect your bowling skills on
one of its 24 state-of-the-art
lanes, practice your golf
game with its awesome Full-
Swing Virtual Golf programs,
or just maybe get the compet-
itive spirit going on one of
its 13 pool tables, electronic
dart boards, or modem wood-
en shuffle boards located
inside the restaurant and bar,
you have the advantage of
calling the shots.
As incredible as it may
seem, there are some who
have still never discovered
what the Back Alley Grill at
OOPS ALLEY has to offer.
What a treat they have in
store! While the outside of
the complex is distinctively
impressive, the atmosphere of
seemingly never ending space
inside will amaze you.
But for the variety of
activities and services they
offer, space is a major consid-
eration, and they haven't
skimped. They can comfort-
ably accommodate presenta-'
tions and training session
seminars, retirement parties,
reunions, graduation parties,
company meetings, recep-
tions, bridal and birthday par-
ties, and group catering cele-
brations of endless choice.
.The eating arrangement in
the restaurant is unique in
every way, incorporating the
time saving advantages of a
fast process service with the


luxury of comfortable dining
that includes table service
and cleanup that lets you
enjoy your meal without the
hassle of tidying up after
yourself.
"It's the process that is
accelerated," co-owner Taylor
Loftin said of the service.
"You order and pay and then
the server brings the food and.
drink out to you. We don't
want to intimate that we are
associated with 'fast food' as
such in any way, because
that's not the case. Our food
is fine restaurant food that
you will get at any quality
restaurant. It's just the
process of serving it that's
enhanced."
When you've ordered and
had your meal delivered, you
can eat and them move on to
your next activity. They take
care of the cooking and
clean-up so you don't have
to, Taylor said.
Physically located at 3721
Highway 90 in Pace, the ,
imposing building is one of
the largest in the area. After
considering the options for
using the property which they
already owned, Taylor and
his co-owner and father Joe
Loftin decided on some type
of family facility that would
be economically feasible and
serve the public in a measura-
ble and responsible capacity.
The result: OOPS ALLEY,
based on the feline motif
from the well known comic
strip, Ally Oops.
However, the Loftins
went a step further and
inverted the name to make it
even more interesting and
adaptable. The cat is used as
a mascot, and although they
do not presently have a live
specimen, the motif is promi-
nently used to its best advan-
tage.
Is there a live one in the
future? Perhaps, but no plans
are in the works for that right
now, Loftin said.
OOPS ALLEY and the


Back Alley Grill are already
nationally acclaimed. Its bil-
liard room with its 11 pool
tables was recognized as
being among the top 10
Billiard Rooms in the United
States in 2004 and was fea-
tured in Billiard's Digest
Magazine. Its focus on family
activities was the reason for
the honor.
"We have a lot of family
participation here," Taylor
said. "A lot of parents and
kids play pool together, and
last year we had a league
accomplished enough to qual-
ify to go to Las Vegas."
That's how involved we are,
he continued.
Of course the business
was always well received
locally and won the title of
Small Business of the Year
for 2007
The sheer magnitude and
the versatility and compre-
hensive commitment of the
facility and its management
to the public's pleasure is
what makes it so popular and
well received. It's party head-
quarters for all ages and
events, and the beauty of it
all is that not only one room
can be rented but the entire
complex can be made avail-
able. Even the restaurant is
available for rental.
There are so many activi-
ties. In addition to. the restau-
rant (that can handle 200 sit-
down guests or otherwise
accommodate groups of from
2 to 2000) and snack bar, the
24 Brunswick bowling lanes,
Cosmic Bowling, 11 billiard
tables, sweeping arcade
redemption center, big screen
televisions, video games, Full
Swing Golf Simulator,
Shuffleboard, Air Hockey,
and Electronic Darts are quite
enough to get the attention of
someone, no matter how
large the group.
Taylor says it's refreshing
to see grown-ups enjoying
the facilities in the arcade.
"It's truly a place where you


Taylor Loftin (above), who with his father Joe Loftin owns OOPS ALLEY at 3721 Highway 90
in Pace, is anxious for those who aren't already familiar with their family entertainment cen-
ter to explore it at their leisure. Consider it your party headquarters where groups of all ages
and events can rent one room or the entire complex. Patrons love the "alley cat" motive and
mascot that's reminiscent of a popular comic strip! (Photo by Obie Crain.)


can act like a kid again with-
out being inhibited about it,"
Taylor said
Add to these a Pro
Bowling Shop with USBC
Bronze Certified bowling
instructor, and you have a
facility unmatched in the
Panhandle area. Taylor says
there's hardly anything like it
between Atlanta and points
west like New Orleans and
SDallas.
But the finest of accom-
modations are only as good
as the people who administer
them, and Taylor says his
management team is of the
highest caliber. In addition to
himself and his father Joe


who own OOPS ALLEY,
Taylor says he has the highest
regards and confidence in
those "who run the place",
including General Manager
Tabatha Bryant, Bowling Pro
Shop Manager Mike Hamada,
and Restaurant Manager
Holley Donaldson.
Taylor points out that it's
truly a great place to relax
and enjoy yourself or for the
same of your business or
social groups. It's open for
lunch and dinner seven days
a week with a full service bar.
(Happy Hour, of course, is
between the hours of 4-7 p.m.
which is an immensely popu-
lar interval!)


You are cordially invited
to inquire about anything you
may still be curious about.
"Accommodations for just
about any celebration imagi-
nable is available;" Taylor
said. "Ask us and we'll be
happy to help you plan every.:
thing!"
Give Taylor or any of his,
assistants a call at (850) 995-
9393 or log on to their web-
site at oopsalley@bellsouth.net
to find out more. Meanwhile,
they would all like to have
you visit and see for yourself
what they have to offer.
But be forewarned,
chances are you'll be goings
back for seconds!

Shouppe signs with


BSC


By BILL GAMBLING
sports @srpressgazette.com
Kickers are on an island
unto their own, but this off-
season Milton Matt Shouppe
was even more difficult until
he signed Monday with
Birmingham Southern
College.
The three-year kicker for
the Panthers was being pur-
sued by Mississippi College
and Birmingham Southern
until the Panthers lost Head
Coach Joey Jones to the
University of South
Alabama.
"It was like a week and a
half to two weeks and I did-
n't hear from anybody. I felt
like I was on my own
island," said Shouppe. "Then
Coach Garfinkle decided to
keep coach (Joel) Williams
and then they decided to
keep recruiting me."
This wasn't the only
time the Milton senior was
nervous about a football
future.
The first time was when
he injured his knee.

Matt Shouppe
Milton HS
Signed with
Birmingham Southern
"After I hurt my knee I
thought any chances of play-
ing in college were over,"
said Shouppe, who also
played soccer and participat-
ed in track. "It wasn't easy,
but I didn't get real nervous
about the whole deal either."
Shouppe is definitely a
different type of player,
which is proven by his first
varsity appearance being the
game winning field goal over
Pine Forest three years ago.
"I don't know what hap-
pened," recalled Milton


Head Coach Mike
McMillion. "We had two
kickers at the game and I
decided to put Matt in.
"That jubilation and
excitement fueled a great
career here at Milton."
But the biggest think that
sticks out in his mind is the
game he missed at the end of
his sophomore year with a
tweeked ankle instead of the
game winning field goal.
Shouppe is. a continua-
tion of a list of successful
Milton kickers that include
Lawrence Tynes and Zach
Kutch.
"The amazing thing
about Matt is lie worked a lot
by himself," said McMillion.
"He was very diligent and
committed while other kids
would be going to the beach
on the weekend.
"Matt might have gone
to the beach, but when he got
back he was out there kick-
ing."
Some of the dedication
and diligence Shouppe
learned from working one

College next season. Joining him at the signing are his dad Greg, mother, Shelia, and brother
Zach. On the back row are Milton assistant football coaches Kelly Gillis, assistant coach Jeff

"I worked with him my


freshman year," recalled
Shouppe. "It is kind of cool


to say I worked with a Super
Bowl winning kicker."

Royals season



comes to end


By BILL GAMBLING
sports @srpressgazette.com
For the Jay Royals the
season came to an end much
sooner than they had hoped
for.
Jay was swept Friday
night by defending Class 2A
State Champions North
Florida Christian 3-1 in
game one followed by a 13-1
decision in five innings.
For the Royals they just
couldn't find a break in
Game one.
"We played extra hard in
the first game and it was not
the outcome we had hoped
for," said Jay Head Coach
Jorey Diamond. "I think we
were just emotionally
drained in the second game."
The timely hit is what
Jay lacked in the first game,
while North Florida
Christian appeared to get all
the breaks.
"We were down 2-1 with
a runner on second base with
one out," recalled Diamond.
"Brandt hits a shot down the
third base line that should tie
the game, but the guy on
third lunges and snags the


ball then doubles our rutmer
off second.
"We tried, but we could-
n't get the timely hit and they
appeared to get all the breaks
Friday." ,,
Lait year due to the dis-
trict and regional alignment
Jay and North Florida
Christian would not have
crossed paths until the finals,
but it appears these two
teams could become very
familiar during the post sea-
son unless the districts are
realigned again.
Miles Hammac took the
loss in game one, but when
all was- said and done
Diamond could not have
been prouder of his team.
"After the game I told
the guys how proud I was of
them," said Diamond. "It
was an emotional time and
this group will be very spe-
cial to me since they were
my first team.
"They, stood beside me
and did what I asked them to
do while I was getting broke
in as a head coach and the
seniors did everything I

Boo Weekley is


21st at Players.


By BILL GAMBLING
sports@srpressgazette.com
Mother Nature kept the
golfers guessing during the
TPC at Sawgrass in Ponte
Vedra Beach, Fla., this past
weekend at the Players
Championship.
She also made local
favorite Boo Weekley feel
her sting as well.
Weekley who entered the
final round on Sunday in a
tie for eighth place at 1-
under par saw the weather
toy with his golf ball to the
point he suffered a one
stroke penalty when the
wind moved his ball just
prior to a putt.
The 1992 Milton grad
ended up the tournament in a
tie for 21st after shooting a
final round of 5-over par 77.
Also finishing 21st for
the tournament were Ian
Poulter, Nicholas Thompson,
Woody Austin, Phil
Mickelson, and Stewart
Cink.
Weekley opened the
tournament with a 2-under
par round of 70 and followed


it up with a 71 "to be at 3-
under on moving day.
Another former Panther
Heath Slocum held on
Sunday by carding a 6-over
par 78 to finish in a tie for
69th with Jesper Parnevik.
Slocum, who opened the
tournament by carding a 69
on Thursday, had trouble fol-
lowing up as she shot over
par the next three rounds.
Bubba Watson missed
the cut after carding a two
round total of 149, which
was 5-over par and two
strokes off the cut.
Sergio Garcia won the
event in a playoff over Paul
Goydos.
Garcia, who started the
final round in third place
carded a 1-under par 71 and
hit a clutch putt on the final
green of regulation to force
the playoff.
Goydos, who started the
tournament by finding water
at No. 17 on Thursday, saw
the same hole dash his hopes
of victory as he found the
water on the famed island
hole.

Jay packs up their gear
after a season at 19-6 with
two of the losses coming on
ra i\dt
So .altei the first best
two-of-three regional finals
has Diamond changed his
attitude?
"I understand the con-
cept the state is going for, but
as a small school I think it
hurts you," said Diamond.
"When you look at teams
like us or Central it is rare to
have two guys who can be a
dominant pitcher.
"Most years you only


have one and then you have
to mix and match, while the
bigger teams are much deep-
er."
Ironically Jay was the
last public school alive in the
Class 2A bracket on Friday,
which is something Diamond
is use to.
"Would it be different if
we played public schools,
sure, but it is never going to
happen," said Diamond.
"We just ignore the topic
with the kids and look at
them as another team
because it has gotten to the
point we know it will never
change."

Church collects for Velvie Fund


Recently, Robert
Hatfield received a check
from Randy Wiggins, treas-
urer, of Chumuckla United
Methodist Church in the
amount of $4,500. When 85
year-old Velvie Hatfield, a
faithful member of the
church suffered fatal bums
following a fire at her home,
the church family launched
the "Velvie Fund."
Throughout the Chumuckla
community, people raised
funds, which now go to
Velvie's family to help them
in the aftermath of the tragic
death of Velvie and the
destruction of her home.
In addition to the check,
Robert and his wife,
Christine, were given prayer
shawls' from the church.


These were very special to them as Velvie had hugged and prayed over each of them at a spe-
cial service ,prior to the her accident. Additional prayer shawls have been given to Velvie's
daughters and son-in-law-'Faye, Christine and Carlos.
Velvie's children and church family would like to thank everyone who contributed to the
Velvie Fund.

questions ti ith Biblical ans ers about lite

Pastor Gallups, "You hear 'Christian this, Christian
that, all the time - for example ... "We are a Christian
Nation, that is a Christian College, I like Christian music,"
etc. What makes all these things truly Christian? Is the
word and definition "Christian" being overused?" J. T.
Milton
Dear J. T.,
To define something as "Christian" would generally
mean that it is distinctly and only about or having to do
with Jesus Christ, The Word of God and/or the things of
God. This definition of something being "Christian" usu-
ally is an inference that it is not "secular" or "worldly" -
that is.. .having NOTHING to do with God. Thus, we
say that it is "secular" music as opposed to "Christian
music" or a "secular" College as opposed to a "Christian"
college.
The strictest definition of a Christian nation or
Christian college or Christian music would mean that only
true- born again believers established and inhabit a nation,
or attend a certain college or sing certain music. Of
course, using this definition, there really is no such thing,
then, as a "Christian nation", for example.
There may be Christians in a nation. There may be
Christians in a college and the College may teach religious
subjects, but that does not make the college or nation
"Christian" in the strictest sense. There may be songs
about Jesus, but that does not necessarily make it
"Christian" nor guarantee that it will only be sung by
Christians nor does it guarantee that the words about Jesus
are even Biblically correct.
In Acts 11:26 - "The disciples were called Christians
first in Antioch." "Disciple" simply means "follower." But
the word "Christian" meant - a distinct representative of
Jesus who claimed a "personal relationship" with Him
through a born-again experience:
Yes, the term "Christian" is probably overused and
often misunderstood. Personally, however, I rejoice to see
the emphasis on Christian rather than "secular." Still, I
caution true believers to "test" everything ... just because
it claims to be "Christian" does not necessarily mean that
it truly and Biblically exalts Jesus Christ.

Did You Know?
* 28 million Americans have hearing loss
* One in ten Americans has hearing loss
* One in three people over 65 has hearing loss,
* By the year 2030 there will be nearly 50 million Americans with
hearing impairment significant enough to wear hearing aids
In other words, if you're experiencing signs of hearing loss, you're not alone.

Some signs of hearing loss:
* Accusing friends and family of always mumbling
* Often asking people to repeat themselves

The negative impact of hearing loss:
Just a slight hearing loss can have a negative impact on your
ability to earn, socialize and enjoy life. Untreated patients
repeatedly say they are less likely to go out to crowded
restaurants, for instance. They miss important information in
meetings and make frequent - often embarrassing - errors
at work. As the problem grows worse, people avoid talking to
them because of the strain.
For all these reasons, it is critical to get help
and fortunately, there's never been a better time.
