Project Kinetic looking at site in Santa Rosa County

bgamblin @srpressgazette.com
TEAM is working representa-
tives who are in town from Proj-
ect Kinetic to finalize plans on a
new 110-plus employee opera-
tion for Santa Rosa County.
Project Kinetic has identi-
fied a site in the industrial park

where they would build a plant
to manufacture cables to tie to-
gether wind farm energy gen-
Currently the project is await-
ing word on three economic in-
centive grants from the State of
Santa Rosa County is in com-
petition with locations in Iowa

and Nebraska for the facility.
In addition to the $30-million
capital investment and associ-
ated temporary construction
jobs, Project Kinetic would
bring with it more than 100 jobs
playing an averaging ways of
$22 an hour.
Santa Rosa's average hourly
wage is $14.75, or roughly just

over $30,000 annually.
If Santa Rosa County wins
the facility, plans call for con-
struction of a 190,000 square-foot
facility on 15 acres.
TEAM officials are also work-
ing in an attempt to secure grant
funding for construction of a rail-
road spur to the plant site from
Economic Development Trans-

portation Funds.
In other job news, With the
help of TEAM Santa Rosa, Clear-
wire Communications, LLC., in
Milton is expanding its current
300 employee customer service
center to 400. Their job fair on
July 7th enticed hundreds of ea-
ger applicants applying for well-
paying jobs.

$30 ON THE 30TH

Chance to

stimulate local


bgamblin @srpressgazette.com
Just how important is
small business to Santa
Rosa County?
Might not seem like a lot
with the big box stores, but
it is critical to keep a bal-
ance in today's economy.
According to the Haas
Center for Business Re-
search and Economic De-
velopment at the University
of West Florida's website
there are 10,025 firms in
Santa Rosa Coun.ty to serve
the estimated 150,053 resi-
In the city statistics Mil-
ton, Pace, Navarre, Gulf
Breeze or none of the other
communities in the state of
Florida even rank coverage.
So it stands to reason
that the "$30 on the 30th"
campaign scheduled for to-
morrow could have consid-
erable economic impact.
"We need to do every-
thing we can to promote
people shopping at home,"
said Milton Mayor Guy
Thompson at the last Mil-
ton City Council Meeting.
"Shopping at home and
supporting the small busi-
nesses is very important
and I hope that everyone

realizes this.
"I also wish that the vari-
ous chamber organizations
would also emphasize shop-
ping locally."
Simply put, this Press
Gazette initiative wants you
to shop at local businesses
and spend at least $30 on
July 30.
"This is a great way to
work together to help stim-
ulate our own economy,"
said Press Gazette Publish-
er Jim Fletcher. "We know
times are difficult, but you
would be amazed how far a
dollar can go if it is invest-
ing into the local business-
es where the dollars stay
A wide variety of busi-
ness people are offering
various items for this pro-
The Ready Room in.Mil-
ton is offering discounts on
hair cuts while some people
like car salesman Eddie
Smith is offering you $100
if you refer anyone to him
at McKenzie Motors if they
buy a car.
There are also insurance
agencies, realtors, skating,
pet grooming, consignment
stores and so many more
wanting you to do business
with them.

PETA about zoo

Commissioners in Santa
Rosa and Escambia Coun-
ty have received a letter
from PETA urging them to
give the local tourist spot a
cold shoulder during their
financial troubles.
PETA, in an e-mail sent
out by David Perle, alerted
outlets to their opposition
any funding from either
In their release they
cite the financial woes of
the zoo who has put up the
animals as collateral for a
private loan of $100,000.
They are also charging
the Zoo of Northwest Flor-
ida did not act in the best

interest of the animals
since they were stripped of
their accreditation in 2006'
from the Association of
Zoos and Aquariums and
a rash of incidents where
they lost animals.
"PETA by policy is
against zoos period," said
Danyelle Lantz, director at
the Zoo of Northwest Flor-
ida. "They are against all
zoos, but they specifically
target zoos not accredited
by the AZA.
"As far as the animals
are concerned it is not un-
usual for them to be col-
lateral on loans. They are
cute and fuzzy, but animals
are assets in a business

Hello this is Tim. Barack Obama gave $250, but
he needed to give $250,000. My dad said he would
take a little bit of that money too.

Saturday, 10:42 p.m.
Hi this is Judy. Did you know last week the
Obama Administration transferred over $2-mil-
lion of our tax dollars to the Palestinians with more

Man who injured deputies to

serve seven years in prison

By Tom McLaughlin
Florida Freedom Newspapers
Joseph Earl Bytell,
whose violent rampage last
December left three Oka-
loosa County deputies in-
jured, was sentenced Mon-
day to serve seven years in
Prosecutor Elissa Saa-
vedra had requested that
Circuit Judge John Brown
make the sentence 20 years.
She argued Bytell's ac-
tions could have killed depu-
ties Matt Abbott, Kevin Kirk-
patrick and David Allen. i
"We could have three
more officers killed in the
line of duty," Saavedra said.
Deputy Anthony For-
gione was fatally shot July
22, 2008. Deputies Burt
Lopez and Warren "Skip"
York were gunned down in a
shootout April 25.

A jury convicted Bytell
June 17 of committing ag-
gravated battery on a police
On Dec. 19, according
to police reports, he fought
with the three officers even
as he drove his truck back
and forth trying to elude
Bytell exchanged punch-
es with the officers, dragged
Abbott with the truck and
ejected Kirkpatrick through
the vehicle's back window.
All three deputies es-
caped the encounter with
only cuts and bruises.
The brawl with Bytell
began as the deputies were
conducting a security check
on Poppy Street south of
Racetrack Road, incident
reports said.
The deputies saw the
driver of a small truck
switch off his headlights and

pull into a parking lot in an
area frequented by drug
dealers and prostitutes, the
report said.
Abbott and Kirkpatrick
approached Bytell's truck,
noticed alcohol and drug
paraphernalia, and ordered
him out of the vehicle, re-
ports said.
Bytell. put his truck in
reverse and dragged Abbott
as he tried to. turn off the
ignition switch, the report
said. Kirkpatrick was forced
to jump inside the truck to
avoid being run over.
The report said Bytell
punched Kirkpatrick before
the truck stopped and Ab-
bott regained his footing.
Bytell continued to drive
in reverse and smashed into
a tree. The impact caused
Kirkpatrick to be partially
thrown through the rear

Bytell continued to fight
and had to be Tasered twice
before he was subdued, the
report said.
Several family members,
employers and a minister
wrote letters to the court on
Bytell's behalf.
Public defender Shawn
Lupella requested a sen-
tence much lighter than the
20 year penalty the state
was seeking - along with
drug treatment.
"We ask the court to al-
low Mr. Bytell the chance
to get his life together," Lu-
pella said.
Brown did agree that
Bytell should receive drug
He was bound by state
statute, however, to impose
a five-year minimum man-
datory sentence on the ag-
gravated battery on a law
enforcement officer charge:

In October 2007, a fire
services executive group
consisting of chiefs from
the nine MSBU stations,
two community repre-
sentatives and the Santa
Rosa County Emergency
Services Coordinator was
formed to create short and
long term funding plans,
review progress towards
those goals and address
concerns. Since the for-
mation of this group, regu-
lar jneetings of the fire sta-
tions funded through fire
MSBU's is leading to bet-
ter on scene coordination
and promoting greater in-
ter-agency training.
Brad Baker, Emergen-
cy Services Coordinator
with Santa Rosa- County
explains, "Because the
fire officers are now meet-

ing on a regular basis and
have a better understand-
ing of each others districts
and operations, we've seen
better on scene coordina-
tion when multiple stations
respond. Anytime we have
enhanced on scene coordi-
nation, public safety levels
are increased. The im-
proved communication is
also helping promote more
training like a company
officer training recently
hosted by Skyline Fire &
Rescue District, which
was attended by over 25
officers from stations
throughout the county."
In the third quarter of the
current fiscal year, stations
responded to 46 mutual aid
calls and 69 in the previous
quarter. Additionally, no re-
sponse calls, or calls where

a fire department was un-
able to respond in their
district and another fire
station was called to pro-
vide mutual aid, continues
to reflect the decrease seen
last -quarter. The decrease
is attributed to a stipend
.program for the volunteer
firefighters which is funded
by the fire MSBU.

No capital funding
expenditures were approved
in the third quarter.
From April 1-June 30,
the nine MSBU stations
responded to a total of
1,276 calls:
- 106 traffic accidents
* 836 cqlls for medical

- 334 fires

Fire MSBU's are used
for the stations of Allen-
town, Bagdad, Berrydale,
East Milton, Harold, Mun-
son, Pace, Skyline, and Jay
which are primarily volun-
teer. The funding is used to
improve fire and medical
services by implementing
a five-year plan created
by the Santa Rosa County
Fire Services Executive
Group, while maintaining
a "no subsidy" ambulance
contract. Holley-Navarre,
Midway, Avalon and Na-
varre Beach are special
taxing districts and not
part of the MSBU fire
group. Gulf Breeze and
Milton fire services are

Santa Rosa's Press Gazette I A7

Norris Mechanical

The home of Dana and Terry Lynn Thacker.

Milton Garden Club announces July award recipients

Special to the Press Gazette
If you read the Press
Gazette, you've seen Dana
and Terry Lynn Thacker's
home before. After hur-
ricane Dennis, a picture
of the Thacker home ap-
peared in the paper de-
picting the aftermath of
the storm. A huge live
oak had crashed thorough
their roof. All front-yard
trees were down as well.
This month, the Mil-
ton Garden Club proudly
presented the Community
Pride Award to the Thack-
er home. The entire fam-
ily pulls together to grow
the beauty that you see
at their Lakeside Drive
residence. Terry Lynn
says that her son Jacob
is especially helpful. Even
their dogs keep the family
company as they garden.
The Thacker family
raises lemon and orange

trees, covering them
when temps dip below 20
degrees. The front yard
is filled with flowers such
as Vinca, moss rose and
many roses.
A favorite rose is called
Dreams Come True. The
bloom starts out all yellow
and turns deep pink. This
rose is special because
one granddaughter loves
yellow and the other pink.
The rose bush is both
beautiful and sentimental.
The Thacker home

Time to

answer the call,

Santa Rosa

Charity starts at home, but how many
really "support" home?
Well, tomorrow is your chance.
The Santa Rosa Press Gazette has
created an initiative called $30 on the
This is a concept in which we ask you
to pick a local merchant, (ANY local
merchant, though not a big box store),
and, on July 30, spend $30 with that
By doing this, we support the local
businessperson who lives beside us,
and we also put dollars back into our
economy instead of spending it in a store
and watching the dollars go elsewhere.
Spending $30 with a local shop owner
in Milton, Pace, Jay, East Milton or
wherever in Santa Rosa County will
help in more ways that you could ever
There are stores right here in your
backyard offering the same quality
products you find elsewhere, but they
offer you something many of the big box
stores don't: REAL service.
Don't you get tired of going to those big
box stores and, if you have a question,
having to spend time hunting down
someone to answer your question? Some
stores even expect you to ring up and
bag your own merchandise.
And that is just the tip of the iceberg.
By taking and spending just $30 at
a local business, you will be starting a
trickle-down effect.
The store owner takes part of the
$30 to pay for the merchandise. Other
portions of your $30 go to pay the store's
employees, and finally, a small portion
ends up as profit in the store owner's
pocket. Where will that store owner
spend his or her profit?
Where will the employees spend their
And if they spend it at another store,
where will THAT store's employees
spend their money?
There are 120,000 people in Santa
Rosa. If everyone spent just $30
tomorrow, that would be more than three
million dollars!
It might just be $30 to you, but it will
grow and have so many effects, it will
really surprise you.
Stimulus dollars don't appear to be
coming to Santa Rosa County in any big
way, so we have to take care of our own
stimulus, thus: $30 on the 30th.
And your part is simple: Pick a store
and help stimulate their store with a
purchase of $30. As you walk in, say
something like "I'm here to spend my

Social studies in economics class

"The democracy will
cease to exist when you
take away from those
who are willing to work
and give to those who
would not."
- Thomas Jefferson
I was told a legendary
story about a college
economics professor and
his attempt to educate his
Age of Obama students
back to a sense of reality.
Cocktail party stories are
not always true, especially
after three drinks, but this
one is a good lesson.
On the first day of
class, the professor
questioned his students to
gauge their temperament
and their knowledge
of economics. He was
astounded to discover
that every student
in the class thought
Obama's move toward
socialism would work.
They understood that no
one would be poor and
the rich would be made
to take care of the less
fortunate. Government
was going to be the great
Shocked and
concerned for the future
of this country and what
the public education
system had taught - and
not taught - these young
people, the professor

devised a plan. ..A
Never before had
he failed a single
student, but he -:
felt compelled
to educate this it
On the second HA
day of class, he Ro
repeated their
view of Obama's
socialist utopia and laid
out his plan for that
semester's grades. It
would be an experiment
on the "Obama Plan" and
its long-term viability.
The class would take
tests just as in other
classes, but everyone's
grade would be that of
the class average. There
would be no A's, because
that would be wrong and
would advantage only
a few. The class was
excited at the prospect,
anticipating an easy
semester with minimal
work or study required.
The first test was
taken a week later; the
class average was a B.
Students who had studied
hard began to get upset
and voiced their concern.
The three A students
had second thoughts and
transferred to another
economics class. The
students who did not
study much were pleased
with the.B.

The mid-
term test rolled
around, and the
" / students who had
not studied much
for the first test
prepared evren
IT TALK less for this one.
nI TALr With the three A
n Hart students gone,
the middle-of-the-
pack students slacked
off, reasoning that they
would not have much
impact on the average
grade. They decided just
to coast and accept the
collective grade. The
class averaged a D.
The grumbles began,
but now it was too late to
drop the class. ,
By the time the next
test came, the students
felt no compelling reason
to study and "carry" the
others in the class. The
class made a collective F
on the test. Group scores
spiraled downward while
blame, disputes, name-
calling and accusations of
sloth escalated.
Ultimately, this
tenured professor failed
all of the students, since
their collective effort
warranted an E Yet he
taught them - and all
of us - an invaluable
lesson, one often
forgotten at our peril in
this Age of Obama.

When there are
incentive, competition
and reward for those who
work hard and do well,
all of society benefits.
When there are not, as
in the old Soviet Union
or any Communist
country where a statist
government says it will
provide for all, it does
not work and never
will. Do not expect this
professor to get the Nobel
Prize in Economics,
which is only given to
liberal ideas advanced
in some cohvoluted way
that somehow results in
children in third-world
countries getting food and
an iPod. This professor's
lesson is not the narrative
that the famously liberal
academic profession
wants to teach.
It is only when faced
with the reality of the
situation does one really
understand a lesson such
as this one. And if we do
not learn it, as Thomas.

Ask the Preacher

Dear Pastor Gallups,
I recently heard you say on "Your Turn" on WEBY
that if a person now completely supported Obama and his
agenda - they are "un-American." This is a strong
charge. Could you repeat your premise here, in writing?
T G. Milton
Dear T. G.
You are correct. I have said that on WEBY, several
times. The statement was a bit tongue-in-cheek, meant to be
provocative, yet with a message of truth to it.
I do not begrudge a person who felt the need to vote
for him during the elections. I was personally, highly disap-
pointed in McCain as our only other choice. The issues were
heated and at times, very confusing to many people. Again,
it was a person's right to vote for whomever they wished.
However, if after several months in office and his .
agenda made perfectly clear - if a person can still ride
around with Obama bumper stickers and proudly claim
themselves to be an avid Obama supporter - then, I main-
tain, in my opinion - that they are now proclaiming their
willingness to be "un'- American," and in agreement with
his agenda.
Look at just some of Obama's PROVEN and acted
upon agenda -
He is vehemently FOR the Fairness Doctrine, which
will in effect, shut down conservative talk-radio and destroy
our first Amendment rights of free speech. That is UN-
He is outspoken on his desire for the most stringent
gun control laws in history - he would cancel the 2nd
Amendment right of US citizens to own and bear firearms
for their personal protection. That is UN-AMERICAN
He is in the process of unprecedented Government
seizure of private business, corporations and financial insti-
tutions. That is illegal, unconstitutional and UN-AMERI-
CAN. This move will turn us into a common third world,
banana republic, and socialist nation. Again...UN-AMER-
I have also written extensively on my concerns that
Obama may not be Constitutionally qualified to hold the
office of President - due to his birth place being undeter-
mined. If this is so - that certainly is UN-AMERICAN
and Un-Constitutional.
So, again...if at this juncture - a person can claim to
be an avid Obama supporter - now that his agenda is clearly
revealed and already "in action" - that person, in my opin-
ion is Un-American. I hope this clears up my position for

Did Santa Rosa County officials violate Sunshine Law?

Messages between commissioners Goodin, Cole preceded vote to withdraw from regional panel

By Dusty Ricketts
Florida Freedom Newspapers

Santa Rosa County commis-
sioners Bob Cole and Gordon
Goodin have said recently that
they have not done anything to
intentionally violate Florida's
However, a series of e-mails
from May 2006 shows the two
communicated about their frus-
trations with Regional Trans-
portation Authority, which was
a partnership with Escambia
County, before voting to with-
draw from the authority a month
Barbara Petersen, president
of the First Amendment Founda-
tion, said it appeared the e-mails

did violate the Sunshine Law, but
only the courts can determine
whether a violation has taken
place. She said a conversation
through e-mail represented a de
facto meeting and likely would be
considered a violation.
"The Sunshine Law applies to
any discussion of public business
between two or more members
of the same collegial body, in this
case the County Commission,"
Petersen said. "They're not sup-
posed to be using computers or
e-mails to communicate with
each other."
The first of the questionable
e-mails was sent by Goodin to
the other commissioners, county
staff members and state Rep.
Ray Sansom on May 4, 2006. The
e-mail is Goodin's report on a

recent Regional Transportation
Authority meeting.
"Makes you wonder if it is
worth getting wrapped around
the flagpole fighting for (and
defending) our projects when
(DOT) District 3 can make their
decisions with little oversight or
accountability," Goodin wrote in
the first e-mail.
In a message Goodin sent to
county employee Michelle Park-
er on May 31, which was copied
to the other four commissioners,
Goodin wrote, "'I'm not sure if we
want to rescind anything or not. If
they're going to pick up their toys
and go home every time things
don't go their way-then maybe
they should stay at home."
That started a brief back and
forth on the Regional Transpor-

station Authority between Goodin
and Cole, which concluded with
Cole writing, "There is too damn

their June 22, 2006, meeting to

missioner John Broxson voted
to leave the panel while Com-
missioner Don Salter and for-
mer Commissioner Tom Stewart

Goodin was not available for

The e-mails were provided
to the Northwest Florida Daily
News by Jerry Couey, one of
three Santa Rosa County resi-
dents to file a number of com-
plaints against the county with
the State Attorney's Office.
Couey included the e-mails
among the complaints he filed
earlier this month with State
Attorney's Office. He also filed
a complaint with Gov. Charlie
Crist's office.
"To me, it's cut and dry. They
discussed county business in an
e-mail and then they took ac-
tion," Couey said. "I think it's one

Lantz became aware of
the letter Thursday as she
sat in the Santa Rosa Coun-
ty Commissioners meeting,
but Commission Chairman
Don Salter was unaware of
the letter as of Thursday af-
As far as PETA is con-
cerned it is not a business to
"Using a baby orangutan
as loan collateral is beyond
reprehensible, and it proves
once again that the Zoo of
Northwest Florida is not fit
to care for animals," says
PETA Director Debbie Lea-
hy. "Instead of funding this
abysmal facility, the Santa
.Rosa and Escambia county
commissioners should be
demanding its closure."
In their other points they
cite the loss of animals such
as the baby hippo, Niles, and
a capybara in 2007. Another
animal loss they pointed
to was a giraffe, which was
known by many Zoo patrons
as Sammy.
Lantz explained each
case involving the loss of
animals and what led to the
outcomes, especially the ag-
gressive nature of the male
"When we lost Niles he
was one year of age and
it is close to two before a
natural aggression is shown
between two male hippos,
especially a newborn and
its father," said Lantz. "We
were.making arrangements
to move the baby to another
zoo when it turned one-and-
a-half and was fully weaned,
but the male hippo got ag-
gressive earlier than expect-
ed and gored the baby
"With our open preserve
at the Zoo you are going
to get more duplication of
events you might expect in
the wild. The capybara, a
large aquatic rodent, had
become friends with the
baby hippo and would ven-
ture over after the baby was
gone. On one particular day
it became aggressive and at-
tacked the capybara."
Since then they have an-
other baby hippo at the zoo
named Kayin and both baby
and mother as being kept as
isolated as possible from the
father so another repeat of
this does not occur.
But Sammy, who was also

lost in 2007, has led to PETA
to claim The Zoo is not fit to
operate and commissioners
should demand its closure
instead of funding the facil-
"Sammy did not break
his neck as was stated in
preliminary reports," said
Lantz. "His death was
brought on by the trauma
of him running himself into

goes, Lantz feels they will

Hunter Walker do discuss
ways the county could help.
Santa Rosa County con-
tributed $125,000 last year.
"It is a challenge to get
help because it is a tough
budget year and I feel like
we are working on the possi-
bility of a long term solution
with Santa Rosa County,"
said Lantz. "We are talking
about looking at a special
taxing authority if the voters
support it.

This report represents some events
the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission Northwest Divi-
sion handled from July 17-23; however,
it does not include all actions taken by
the Division of Law Enforcement.


Officer Royce Johnson and Reserve
Officer Lila Wise were patrolling the
Bluff Springs area in the Escambia
River Wildlife Management Area. They
observed a suspicious looking campsite
with a van parked nearby. There was no
one around, and the tag on the van was
registered to another vehicle. When
the owners returned, Johnson identi-
fied the owner of the van. He admitted,
to attaching a tag not assigned to the
vehicle. Additionally, he was driving on
a suspended license and was wanted
in Bay County on failure to pay child
support. Johnson turned the individual
over to an assisting Escambia County
deputy after issuing him two notice-to-
appear traffic citations.

Officer Keith Clark stopped a vessel
in Pensacola Pass and found the opera-
tor in possession of two undersize gag
grouper and over-the-bag limit of red
snapper. Notice-to-appear citations
were issued.

Officer Ben Pineda was patrolling
the Escambia River conducting boat-
ing safety and fisheries inspections.
During a vessel safety stop, an opera-
tor pulled 'an undersize red drum out
of the live well and asked Pineda what
type of fish it was. Pineda responded
that it was a red drum and that it was
undersize. The fisherman first advised
that he found it floating in the water,
but later changed the story to catching
the fish, keeping it out of curiosity and
planning to release it. Pineda issued
the subject a notice-to-appear citation.

Officers David Jernigan and Keith
Clark stopped a vessel in Pensacola
Pass and found the operator in posses-
sion of over-the-bag limit of.red snap-
per. A notice-to-appear citation was

Officer Kenneth Manning stopped a
vehicle that was driving erratically on
Scenic Highway. While speaking to the
driver, Manning noticed several signs
that the driver was impaired. Lt. Brian
Lambert was nearby and responded to
assist. After performing poorly on all
field sobriety tasks, the female driver
was arrested and transported to the

der the influence. She agreed to give a
breath sample, which resulted in .331
g/210L. The driver had to be trans-
ported to Baptist Hospital to get medi-
cally cleared. Approximately five hours
later, the-driver was medically cleared
and was transported back to jail.

Officer Steve Hoomes responded
to a boating accident near Quietwater
Beach involving two rented personal
watercraft (PWC). Both operators
knew each other and were operating
the vessels in the area. When one of
the PWCs stopped for a few moments,
the other operator. headed straight to-
ward it. Neither operator took evasive
action, resulting in a broadside colli-
sion. No one was injured; however, the
impacted PWC was badly damaged. A
notice-to-appear citation was issued to
one operator, charging him with viola-
tion of a navigation rule resulting in a
boating accident.


Officer Keith Clark spoke on various
wildlife issues to a class of Girl Scouts
in Escambia County.


Lt. Mark Hollinhead and Officer
Ryan Nelson responded to a boating
accident in Destin Harbor that involved
a 42-foot stolen vessel. The U.S. Coast
Guard (USCG) stopped the vessel af-
ter receiving calls about it recklessly
maneuvering around the harbor and
almost crashing into other vessels.
Nelson spoke with the operator and de-
termined he was impaired from being
up all night drinking and using illegal
drugs. A bag of cannabis was in the cab-
in of the vessel, and the subject stated
he had dumped more overboard when
he observed the USCG vessel. The sub-
ject was transported to the Okaloosa
County Jail, where field sobriety tasks
were administered and confirmed he
was impaired. A breath-alcohol sample
revealed his breath-alcohol content was
.108 g/210L. He was booked into the jail
and charged with grand theft, boating
under the influence, reckless operation
and possession of less than 20 grams of
cannabis. The vessel was returned to
the owner with minor damage.

Officer Matt Webb stopped a vessel
in Destin Pass to conduct a fishery in-
spection. The inspection revealed an
undersize amberjack and scamp. The

cident in Choctawhatchee Bay at the

curred when a vessel traveling west
struck a bridge piling with three occu-
pants on board. Two of the occupants
were treated at a local hospital for
minor injuries and released. The third
occupant was ejected upon impact and
was missing. FWC officers utilized side-
view sonar to assist the dive teams in
locating the missing subject. Approxi-
mately five hours after the accident,
search and rescue teams recovered the
body of the missing subject. Investiga-
tors Eddie Gatlin and Shelby Williams
are investigating the accident.


Officer Joe Chambers was conduct-
ing resource inspections on Deerpoint
Lake when he observed a subject on a
fishing pier lighting what appeared to
be a cannabis cigarette. As Chambers
approached, the subject threw the con-
traband into the water, threw up his
hands, and said, "You got me." A baggie
of cannabis and a pack of rolling papers
were seized, and the subject was cited
with the violations.

Gospel Projects makes it three in a row

sports @ srpressgazette.c.onm

There is something about the
softball teams at Gospel Projects
For the third consecutive year,
the Lady Panthers won the Dizzy
Dean World Series.
After wining the U-12 division
last year in Southhaven, Miss.,
the same team pretty much went
back this year to dominate to win
the U-14 division.
"This is pretty much a group
of 13-year-old girls except for
Casandra Gilley and Brooke Mc-
Gee, who are 14," said Bill Hyler,
who has coached all three teams.
This is the second time Gilley has
been part of a team to win the
Dizzy Dean World Series.
"Casandra was part of the team
that won the U-14 title back in 2007
when she was 12 years old."
For the Lady Panthers it was

marks the second consecutive softball title for this team and the
third consecutive from Gospel Projects Park.

a short tournament as they fin-
ished 4-0 overall.
In their first game they de-
feated Southhaven 10-0 as Taylor
Hyler pitched a no-hitter.
Game two saw them defeat
the Mississippi State Champion

Mississippi Heat 5-2.
In the next two games, Gospel
Projects defeated Good Hope,
Ala., 4-3 and then in the champi-
onship game 6-2.
"It wasn't an easy tourna-
ment, especially against Good

Hope," said Hyler. "In the semi-fi-
nals they jumped out and scored
three runs in the first inning and
we fought our way back to win."
Game two against the Ala-
bama State Champions was not
so easy.
"They managed to come out
of the losers bracket to play us
again and it was a crazy game as
they had runners on second and
third and the umpire called strike
three," recalled Hyler. "The run-
ners went to the dugout and our
players came in when a coach re-
alized it was just strike two and
sent her home.
"The umpire counted the run
and I was not very popular for ar-
guing the call."
But the Lady Panthers were
there to win.
In the bottom half of the first
inning Marcella DeMarco hit a fly
ball over the center fielder's head
and tied the game with a dramat-

ic inside the park home run.
Gospel Projects takes a 2-1
lead and after tying the game at
two, the ladies from Milton went
on to win scoring four runs to cre-
ate their margin of victory.
Hyler is looking forward to tak-
ing most of this same team back
to defend their title next season.
"We have been very fortunate
these girls have been playing to-
gether since they were 11 years
old," said Hyler. "We took this
group to play three years ago and
they won one game before losing
the next two.
"Ironically it was the Good
Hope team who put us out of the
tournament back then."
Gospel Projects was awarded
a birth in the tournament since
they do not actually have a state
championship in Florida.
The closest sanctioned Dizzy
Dean softball team to Gospel
Project is in St. Pete.

Finding out how you measure up

Football season is just over a
month away, but some players in
Santa Rosa County with dreams
of playing on Saturday laced
up their cleats to see how they
would measure up.
The'Combine on the Coast
held at Gulf Breeze High School
saw 26 football hopefuls along
the Gulf Coast do their best in
events like the bench press,
broad jump, vertical jump, 40-
yard dash, 5-10-15 shuttle, three
cone shuttle, and a couple of ex-
tra activities.
For some this was a chance
to get a boost in confidence like
Pace quarterback David Casey
who has already been working
out for some colleges.
"This has been a lot of fun do-
ing everything," said Casey who
has been courted so far by Troy
University, Louisiana-Monroe,
Louisiana-Lafayette and Notre
Dame. "I am looking forward to
later this month where the best
of the best will be at Top Gun.
"But with this combine it has
really helped me with my confi-
Casey was really excited
about his time since he posted
a 4.7 in the 40-yard dash on the
grass with a laser timer. His per-
sonal best is a 4.51 on the track
at Pace High School.
The variety of schools -and
athletes was very impressive, as
Jay quarterback Stephen Brab-
ham really impressed several
with his vertical jump and his
abilities during the combine.
"My 40 time is as good as I ex-
pected and I was really pleased
with my 4.37 time in the shuttle,"
said Brabham, a senior at Jay
and three-sport athlete. "This is
very nice and are some things
we would never do at Jay.
"Overall, I am pleased, and
we are getting some help from
the Andrews Clinic at Jay to
make sure we are using the right
Some of the players didn't
even decide they would par-
ticipate until the final few days
before the combine, so training
was out of the questions despite

some regular workouts.
Milton quarterback Matt
Floyd and fellow Panther of-
fensive lineman Kody Lunsford
both waited until the last a cou-
ple of days before even deciding
to attend.
"This is a lot easier than
a practice with breaks," said
Floyd. "This is a lot of fun to do
and compete with other great
athletes in the area.
"The biggest thing for me is
to get the feel for it."
For Lunsford it is a little hard-
er since he spent the previous
week at church camp.
"I feel pretty good since I
didn't decide to do this until a
couple of days ago,"' said Lun-
sford. "I am excited and looking
for the exposure and opportu-
"The opportunity is what I am
here for and to get looked at by
some coaches."
Panhandle Sports Broadcast-
ing along with Acceleration and
Sports Connection are offering
area athletes a chance to not
only see how they measure up
individually, as well as to others,
when it comes to the essential
skills college programs are look-
ing for as they host the first ever
Combine on the Coast.
"We felt at Panhandle Sports
Broadcasting that it was time
to initiate the first combine in
Northwest Florida," said Bill
Brownell, president of Panhan-
dle Sports Broadcasting. "This
is something that local kids can
attend and not travel countless
hours away from home, and we
are excited about the turnout
and hope to see it continue to
"When we started PSB, we
did so with the local high school
athlete in mind and helping pro-
mote all the talent we have here
in Northwest Florida."

clips from the combine and in-
formation on their Web site at

coaches and recruiters.

zette is featuring the times and

Argos tap Stinnett to

captain men's ship

sports @(srpressgazettc.com

Bob Stinnett finally has got-
ten his dream job, and he could
not be more excited about be-
ing introduced Monday as the
third men's basketball coach in
UWF's history.
The former captain of the
1967-68 Argo's squad during
their inaugural season talked
about many sleepless nights be-
fore being introduced.
"I had trouble sleeping as
the process went along," joked
Stinnett. "And now that I found
out I was going to get the job, I
couldn't sleep then either.
"When I coached at LSU with
Dale Brown, I was asked what
my dream job would be, and
there were two. The University
of Hawaii because of the weather
and here at UWF"
Both UWF Athletic Director
Dave Scott and UWF President
Dr. Judy Bense were very excit-
ed about the opportunity to hire
"It is not often you have the
opportunity to honor one of your
own," said Scott. "We are very
happy to introduce former Ar-
gonaut and UWF Hall of Famer
Bob Stinnett as new men's bas-
ketball head coach. We expect
to continue with our athletic suc-
cess across all sports, with Bob
becoming the newest member of
the Argonaut team."
'Athletics are relevant and I
care about this community," said
Dr. Bense. "Bob Stinnett is a
prize, and we are in great hands.
This choice is not just about bas-
ketball. He is the perfect pick."
The previous two seasons,
Stinnett was the head coach at
Pensacola High School were
the Tigers went 54-15, which in-
cluded a district title, regional
title and a final trip to the Florida
Final Four in Class 4A.
Stinnett also has coached at
the junior college and university
levels with stops at schools, such
as Pensacola Junior College,
Okaloosa-Walton Conmmunity
College, Louisiana State Univer-
sity and University of New Or-
leans to name a few.
After leaving UNO in 1987
following a berth in the Na-
tional Invitational Tournament,
Stinnett returned to the junior
college ranks in 1990, making
stops at Okaloosa-Walton Com-
munity College (1990-92) and
Chipola Junior College (1994-
95). He started the basketball
program at Okaloosa-Walton,
and after a 9-21 record in their
first year the team improved to
21-9 in their second. Stinnett
then acted as athletic, director
at Chipola for one year, as well
as head coach of the basketball
team, leading the team to a re-'
cord of 22-8.
UWF finished 13-12 last sea-
son and lost eight seniors, but
Stinnett is ready to make a big
impact on the program as part of

his five year plan.
"I can tell you we're going to
come after you hard," explained
Stinnett, describing the UWF
2009-10 team. "We have a lot of
speed, but we lost eight seniors.
We were 13-12 last season, so it's
a rebuilding season. But we're
going to play hard, play smart,
and we're going to play 94 feet of
basketball, end line to end line."
But there is more to Stinnett
than just coaching basketball as
he acknowledged there are 13
other athletic programs that are
just as important to the athletic
program at UWE
"Without the connection of
the people in this community,
this University ceases to exist,"
Stinnett explained. "The Uni-
versity needs the support of the
Northwest Florida community.
There are 13 sports here that
are very good. Today is my op-
portunity to get the community
involved in all of those sports."
Besides the coaching and
recruiting experience, Stinnett
also bring with him a lot of histo-
ry as he returns to UWF He was
a member of the most successful
Argo team when they went 19-3,
which is still tops. He also has a
big goal for his first year, as he
wants to return to the confer-
ence tournament.
"I want us to contend for our
division title," said Stinnett. "I
also want to return to the con-
ference tournament, which is
something we haven't done since
2002 or 2003."
The new Argos coach has
been a favorite of the first UWF
men's coach in school history,
Marvin Beck
"Bob is probably one of
the best guards I have ever
coached," said Beck "He works
at it, he is good at it and he loves
the game.
"I know Bob will do it the right
way and do the right thing. If he
can get a little help, I guarantee
you a good program."
Stinnett was one of four fi-
nal candidates selected by the
search committee, including
Jim Boone of Tusculum Col-
lege (Tenn.), Robert "Happy"
Osborne of Georgetown College
(Ky.) and Greg Zimmerman
of Alderson-Broaddus College
(WV). The four finalists were
chosen from an initial group of
145 applicants.
At the conclusion of the press
conference, lead donor Joe Am-
bersley presented checks total-
ing $51,000 to UWF Athletics, all
since the hire of Stinnett as head
"I want to clear something up
about Bob Stinnett. He can con-
nect with a community and fund-
raise, but he can also recruit and
coach," said Ambersley. "He has
a record of 297-98 or roughly win-
ning three of every four games
he has coached. That is 75 per-
cent, which puts him on par with
programs like Duke and other

Santa. Rosa resident recalls

years of teaching, change

Photos and story by
Ninety-five years ago, the
world was a totally different
place. Air conditioning was
nonexistent, automobiles
were just starting to.
emerge, and the price of a
black and white copy of the
Press Gazette was pennies
compared with today's price.
To Margrette Lassiter,
those were the days.
Unfortunately, the price of
a color copy of the Gazette
is a lot more than an old
black and white, and sadly,
automobile companies were
better off then than they'
are now. But those are the
signs of the times, and to,
Lassiter, a life-long resident
ot Santa Rosa County, change
is inevitable. "I've seen a
lot," Lassiter said. "I never
thought things would change
like they have."
Born the daughter of
Johnnie and Kate Hamilton.
Lassiter began life exactly,
one day before the start of
World War I. Since then she,
has seen numerous acts of
conflict and events people
only read about in history
books. Lassiter became a
history butf herself. Today
she enjoys genealogy and
loves reading books.
"I read one,(a book) once a
week," she said.
If history didn't spark her
- interest, teaching did. Her
father drove and owned a
private school bus that he
used for the county until it
started a public school bus
Lassiter's older and only
brother also drove school bus
routes alongside his father.
After graduating from high
school in 1932, she took the
students froni those busses
and put them in a classroom
- the same classroom she

Margrette Lassiter, who turned 95 on Monday, looks over old photos in her Pea Ridge home.
At 95, Lassiter is still able to live and shop on her own. She is visited every morning by her
neighbor across the street. TOP: Lassiter's black and white photos sit on her coffee table.

sat in nearly a decade before
- qnly,this time, .she was the
Most of her years teaching
were spent in first grade. At
the time, kindergarten didn't
exist, so first grade was the
initiation stage for students.
For Lassiter, her students
were like her children, and
she was there to teach them,
but she wanted to give them
love more than anything else.
"When they came along,
they were mine just as much
as they were their mommies'
and daddies'. I didn't want to
teach them; I just wanted to
be there aunt," Lassiter said.
Lassiter's fondest memory
of teaching was when she
sat a student in her lap and
comforted her when she was
"They were my babies,"

Lassiter said. "We had a lot
of good times together, and I
enjoyed them very much."
Lassiter taught at what
is now Pace Elementary
School in 1932, and lectured
up to grade six, which was
favorite grade ,
to teach. St
graduated I neve
from high thing
school, g
teachers did chanr
not have to
attend college, they
but were
asked to take - Margr
a teaching
exam, which
Lassiter passed.
Margrette later enrolled
at Florida State University,
"which was Florida State

College at the time." Lassiter
said. She went to school for
a year full time and finished
up the rest of her classes in
summer school.
According to her niece,
Nancy Dungan, seeing her

for most of
her life, "she
has taught
everyone in
the Milton

area at one point in time,"
Dungan said.
Seeing her student's faces
change wasn't the only thing

she has seen evolve. A newer
television sits atop her older
box tube in her living room,
and according to Lassiter, who
turned 95 on Monday, it gets a
lot of use. She enjoys watching
the news and said television
was the most memorable
invention in her lifetime.
Throughout Lassiter's life,
encyclopedias all became
Web sites, phones could be
taken from the home with
no cords attached, and
everything that was black
and white became color.
Living in this constantly
altered world didn't scare
Lassiter, but instead
challenged her.
"I did not expect all of
these things 'changes), but I
was anxious to find out about
them," Lassiter said.
Lassiter was and still
is an active member of the
community. She attends
church as much as possible
and even helped establish
one in Santa Rosa County.
"She's been very involved
in the church," Dungan said.
"She was one of the original
members of the Wesley
Memorial Church."
One of Nancy's fondest
memories of her aunt was of
their visits to Pensacola.
"We'd go to Pensacola
and go shopping while our
grandmother went to the foot
doctor." Dungan-said.
Lassiter loves having
guests at her house in Pea
Ridge, and when she was
able, loved to cook meals for
her visitors.
"Aunt Margrette is one of
the best cooks," Dungan said.
Even after all of these
years in the county, the
birthday girl is happy with
her life and thankful for many
"I'm able to live in my
house by myself, Lassiter
said "I'm grateful that I'm as
well as I am."

Bronson advises consumers

to avoid credit card scam

Florida Agriculture and Consum-
er Services Commissioner Charles
H. Bronson warned consumers
to avoid a scam in which con art-
ists posing as credit card company
fraud investigators attempt to trick
card holders into disclosing se-
curity code data from their cards.
In yet another variation of the
recurring scam to obtain personal
financial information from con-
sumers, scam artists posing as
credit card security members are
reportedly calling card holders and
informing them that a questionable
and likely bogus charge has been
placed on their card. After advising
the consumer that they will remove
the charge from the card, they ask
for the three-digit security code
number on the bacld of the card in'
an effort to assure the unwitting

consumer that his or her card re-
mains valid and to verify that the
card has not been lost or stolen.
In some instances, large
unauthorized purchases ap-
pear on the credit card within
minutes of the conversation.
"Criminals will go to any length
to rip off consumers," Bronson said.
"The important thing to remember
is to avoid providing any financial
information to a stranger calling on
the phone whatever his or her claim
about the reason for calling is."
Bronson is advising consumers
to hang u1p on such callers as credit
card officials insist that they do
not call consumers and seek such
information over the telephone. If
consumers receive such a call, they
should immediately call their credit
card company or bank that issued

The scam has been reported in
the Midwest, although it is unclear
whether it has occurred in Florida.
Bronson said that scams always
seem to increase during periods of
economic turbulence as the rela-
tively high unemployment rate
provides scam artists with a ready
work force. At the same time, work-
ing citizens struggling to make
ends meet are more susceptible to
fall for the lure of a big discount or
quick dollar that con artists often
"Consumers need to keep their
wits about them at all times, espe-
cially now when many citizens are
experiencing financial difficulties,"
Bronson said. "Dealing with the
wrong people will put you further
behind, not ahead."

It's known as "poaching," so if you think taking
over the bag limit, out-of-season lobsters, or lob-
sters from a sanctuary is OK, you might want to talk
to the people recently penalized for doing just that.
During "Operation Freezer Burn" the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC)
assisted the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Ad-
ministration (NOAA) Office for Law Enforcement
and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in the search
and arrest warrants of a group illegally harvesting
lobsters from artificial habitat placed in the Florida
Keys National Marine Sanctuary (FKNMS).
The artificial habitats, referred to as "casitas" or
"condos," are perceived by lobsters as shelter, and
they congregate at the sites. This makes for easy

harvesting of the crustaceans.
In the end, six people were convicted for the il-
legal harvest of 922 lobsters on the opening day of
Florida's commercial lobster season in August 2008.
They faced additional charges after authorities found
approximately 1,700 pounds of wrung lobster tail
stockpiled that was harvested during the 2008 closed
season and intended for sale after opening day.
"Those who respect and follow the rules want
those who are exhausting and abusing the resourc-
es to pay," said Officer Robert Dube of the FWC.
"More than 1,700 pounds of lobster tails represents
more than 1,000 times the legal bag limit for a mini-
season sport dive. If everybody took half that many
lobsters, there wouldn't be any left."

Biologists recently wit-
nessed an extraordinary
sight while conducting an
underwater study of mutton
snapper in the Florida Keys.
For the first time in Flor-
ida waters, scientists with
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission's
(FWC) Fish and Wildlife Re-
search Institute, the Nation-
al Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration and the Uni-
versity of South Florida ob-
served this species spawn-
ing in a Marine Protected
Area in the Florida Keys.
The site was established,
in part, to protect spawning
schools of snapper and grou-
per in the Tortugas Ecologi-
cal Reserve.
Mutton snapper is an im-
portant species to both rec-
reational and commercial
fisheries. When fish group
together in large numbers
to spawn, they are more vul-
nerable to fishing pressure.
Allowing the fish to spawn
without angler pressure
will help sustain the fishery.
The data collected from this
study will help biologists un-
derstand the effectiveness
of creating no-take Marine

Protected Areas to protect a
variety of sea life, including
fish and coral reefs.
Biologists spotted the
large school of spawning
snapper while working on
an acoustic tagging proj-
ect. The purpose of this
research is to obtain infor-
mation regarding the move-
ment, spawning and migra-
tory habits of snappers and
groupers. They conducted
surgeries underwater at
depths of up to 120 feet to
implant acoustic tags in-
side the fish. Conducting

Special to the Press Gazette
The F.M. Smith family held their annual family reunion on Satur-
day, July 18 at the First Baptist Church of Milton. There were 83
in attendance. Several families traveled from afar to attend the
celebration. Annette Forseman, her daughter and granddaughter,
Karen and Ali McCurdy from Pennsylvania organized this year's
festivities. As part of the planning process, Ali, who is only 10
years-old came up with the idea that it would be niece for the
smith family participants to support a local charity. As a result, The
Resource Pregnancy Center on Stewart Street was selected. Each
attending family was asked to bring baby items. Following the re-
union, the items were delivered to the Director, Ms. Mary Shirah.
All received a blessing.

Set your thermostat depending on the season, and save.
If you're like most people, you set the thermostat in your home and forget bout
it. And then, as the outside temperature changes, you make adjustments as
needed. But did you know that constantly changing your settings can make
your air-conditioning unit use more energy and cost you more money? In fact,
just a few degrees here and there can make a big difference in the amount of
energy you use. That's why, in the summer, you should set it no lower than 78
degrees, and in the cooler months, no higher than 68 degrees. And then leave
it there. It's an easy way to change the way you look at using energy'. Because
a little change will do us good.

To get more energy-saving tips and to learn about other EarthCents programs
that can help you save even more energy and money, call 1-877-655-4001 or
