We complain because we are spoiled. The ones who have it bad are in Afghanistan and Iraq. We need to bring them home so they can be safe. And when it comes to jobs for them, we have to put up with this because they are citizens ghting for us. We need to back them up. Lets bring the boys home. Tell the presi dent we need them home. 2:56 p.m.: Yes, this is Martha. I am calling about Eds comment on Aug. 3 about the speeding on Jones Road. On Aug. 5, another mailbox was hit by a car. Two residents have had to replace their mailboxes two different times because they were hit. About a week ago, an SUV wrecked at the corner of Jones Street and Booker Lane and took out two mailboxes and damages the drain when it ended up in the ditch. So far, it has only been property dam age, but I am afraid it wont be long before something more serious happens. What about getting speed bumps here like they have on Pine Ridge Drive? 12:20 p.m.: My name is Barbara, and this is con cerning the picture of the woman on the motorcycle in the Press Gazette. Who ever took that photo needs more training because it should have never been printed with what was writ ten on her helmet. Another problem is that woman had a stupid cigarette in her mouth. That picture should not have been printed or shown to kids, let alone adults. It makes you sick. Bye. Editors note: Once again, let me stress, like we did in Saturdays pa per, our sincerest apology to those who were offended by the photo. We have tak en actions to correct this and make sure it doesnt happen again. Friday 2:42 p.m.: Well, I have never seen so many angry people or as much contro versy as there has been over these red-light camer as. So you can guess there needs to be some who take the warning. Those people will be out of a job soon. 10:21 a.m.: Hi, this is Mike in reference to the Aug. 3 edition of the Press Gazette and the Lifestyle page Buckets for Blake. Someone needs to edit the pages for pictures. This was not an appropriate item for children to read on a helmet. Thank you very much. Thursday 6:10 p.m.: This is Fran. The bikers kickoff was a worthy cause and worth re porting. But I am sure you could have found a better example of a motorcyclist than a woman holding a cigarette and a helmet with inappropriate language. 6:51 a.m.: Yes, Id like to comment on the Wednes day, Aug. 3, Press Gazette Lifestyle page. For good ness sake, could you all not have picked a more appro priate picture at the bottom than this woman sitting on a motorcycle with the ciga rette in her mouth? That is not a very good role model for children to pick up the newspaper or anyone else to see. Please pay attention to what you put in this pa per. It makes you look very unprofessional. Wednesday 7:24 p.m.: This is Stan about the red-light cam eras. I keep reading the things about the red-light camera. I dont know what all the fuss is. All you have to do is obey the laws. They should put these things on all of the red lights in town. If you have a short com ment you would like to make, call the Speak Out line at 623-5887. Speak OUT

Local Santa Rosas Press Gazette| A5 Wednesday, August 10, 2011 A Beautiful Life auditions under way Photos and story by Mathew Pellegrino mpellegrino@srpressgazette.com Auditions were held Saturday for A Beautiful Life, a Moonshine Creek Pro duction play that will once again prove that history runs deep in Santa Rosa County. The play, written by Shay Morran, a longtime Santa Rosan, will kick off where last years sold-out show, Johnson Family Reunion, left off. Director Stacie Toups, who is working side by side with the Santa Rosa Arts and Culture Foundation, which helps put on Riverwalk and a Get a Taste for Art, put her decision skills to the test when she graded auditions for the play, which will be performed at Milton High Schools audito rium in October. This play is really going to appeal to a lot of locals in the area, Toups said. Thats because the play tells the story of how Santa Rosa County came to be what it is today, and will surround viewers in the history of Santa Rosa County that they might not even know about. The play will talk about Floridatown, Bagdad, and well have some songs in there to entertain crowds, Toups said. The play will not only tell the story of Santa Rosa County but allow local talent to showcase their acting skills. Santa Rosa Arts and Culture Founda tion Chairman Richard Baldwin, a long time Santa Rosa County historian, said the play took excerpts from a short story contest held earlier this year. Area high school students and others submitted short stories based on the history of the county to the Santa Rosa County Arts and Culture Foundation. One of those people was Baldwin, who helped Toup with Satur days auditions. A lot of people dont know that Whiting Field used to be a POW camp for German prisoners, Baldwin said. And Chumuckla used to bottle its own water and sell it to local outlets years ago. And that is just a taste of some of the stories that will be incorporated into the play. Baldwin said that at the end of last years Johnson Family Reunion play, the grandmother passed away. This play will pick up where the last play left off as family members of the grandmother go through her will and her belongings, which all play a signicant role in the history of Santa Rosa County. Morran, who wrote last years play as well, said she was honored to be able to write this years play. Morran has lived in Milton since 1970, and her father was a Santa Rosan. I have a lot of roots here, Morran said. I majored in English when I went to college, but I never got a chance to put that major to use. All three performances of last years play sold out, and Morran said she hopes for the same this year. The Santa Rosa Arts and Culture Foun dation runs in conglomeration with Moon shine Creek Productions. The production company produces plays that are appeal ing to local people. Auditions will be held again this Satur day at 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. at the Dragony Gallery on Escambia Street in Milton. A Beautiful Life showtimes Friday and Saturday, Oct. 14 and 15, at 7 p.m., and Sunday, Oct. 16, at 2 p.m. Tickets will be $10, and $5 for students. Tickets can be purchased at the door or at the Dragony Gallery on Escambia Street in Milton. Carol Rodgers came to the Dragony Gallery on Saturday morning to audition for the upcoming play A Beautiful Life. Playwright and longtime Santa Rosa County resident Shay Morran, left, came to the auditions. Santa Rosa Arts and Culture Foundation Chairman Richard Baldwin is at right.

Local A6 | Santa Rosas Press Gazette Wednesday, August 10, 2011 McCombs earns Florida Housing Hall of Fame selection Special to the Press Gazette Electrical contractor Jack McCombs has been elected to the Florida Housing Hall of Fame and will be inducted Oct. 22 during the Florida Home Builders Associ ations annual Fall Conference in Tampa. The announcement came from Rob ert Harper, chairman of the Hall of Fame Board of Governors, at last weeks FHBA Board of Directors meeting in Orlando. Since 1990, the hall has recognized 56 people who have made signicant and lasting contributions to the Florida home building industry and FHBA. McCombs, of McCombs Electric Com pany in Milton, made history in 1985 as the rst associate member from Florida to vote on the Board of Directors of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). He served as 1981 FHBA second vice president and has always believed that the homebuilding industry is one of the best industries in the nation. Knowing the importance of supporting his industry, he became active with the Home Builders Association of West Flor ida (HBA) in the early 1960s. McCombs was also active with NAHB. He was one of the rst associate national directors and is a member of the presti gious NAHB Hall of Honored Associates, which recognizes outstanding associates in the U.S. He was named HBA Associate of the Year in 1977 and FHBA Associate of the Year in 1985, and still has a burning desire to help the housing industry, and that de sire has instilled a sense of lasting volun teerism to many. McCombs served on the governor-ap pointed committee that developed Flori das rst energy code for residential and commercial construction. His service to his industry, association and community spans 48 years. Fort Walton Temple Mound subject of presentation Special to the Press Gazette The Fort Walton Temple Mound will be the Lore, Legends and Learning subject Aug. 30 at 5:30 p.m. at the Navarre Li brary. The mound was built as a ceremonial and political center by the Mound Builder Culture. At 12 feet tall and 223 feet wide, it is the largest on saltwater and possibly the largest prehistoric earthwork on the Gulf Coast. An estimated 200,000 basket loads of earth were used to create this earthen structure. The mound was probably begun around AD 700 and completed sometime between AD 1500 and AD 1650 the late Mississip pian Time Period in the Panhandle of Flor ida. The high point of its use was around the late 1400s. The program is part of the free Lore, Legends and Learning series at the li brary, sponsored by the Friends of the Navarre Library. The program is held the last Tuesday of each month from January through October, presenting a variety of topics to the public. Reservations are not required. Visit www.friendsofnavarrelibrary.org for the most current information. Achievement Architectural rm moving quickly on community center plans By Mathew Pellegrino mpellegrino@srpressgazette.com Quina Grundhoefer Ar chitects are moving quickly to help close out the pro posed Pace Community Center design in hopes to have the new establish ment built by voting season next year. The new community center that will be structur ally similar to the Bagdad Community Center will be off of Chumuckla Highway. The center is proposed to have a multipurpose room, kitchen and bathrooms, as well as a paved parking lot. Quina Grundhoefer Ar chitects spokesmen told commissioners at Mondays county commission meeting that they planned to build a slightly bigger kitchen com pared to Bagdad Communi ty Centers and would build a covered walkway similar to Bagdads. The building footprint would be 50 by 80 feet, and the property would allow for a 28-space parking lot. The property the commu nity center will be built on will allow space for a future gymnasium. The proposed 4,000square-foot building is es timated to cost $500,000 to build. Furnishings, the parking lot and contin gency money will bring the estimated grand total to $658,000. Originally, the county es timated the project would cost $350,000 to $400,000. Resident Jerry Foster, who spoke at Mondays commission meeting, said he was concerned that the 28 parking spaces would not be adequate consider ing the facility could hold 200 patrons. Commissioner Don Salter, who has overseen the project and the prop erty, said there is additional overow parking past the proposed parking lot. If a gymnasium were to be built in the future, commission ers said, they would con sider extending the paved parking lot. Part of the cost for the community center would come from District 1 and 3 recreation funds and gen eral funds and would cost the county $13,000 a year to run. The community center could be rented out. That money would be used to help run power in the build ing and support county functions. A price has not been set for rental of the building. Navarre resident Wil liam Lake said he worried the center would become a sports activity center and would not be utilized for art functions and plays, which he said he and many others support. We are a diversied community, not a jock spot, Lake said at Mondays com mission meeting. Lake suggested the county propose higher ceil ings in the community cen ter to allow for rental com panies to bring in stages so art shows and plays could rent the space. Commissioner Lane Lynchard said the building would be run by the county parks department and not by an athletic department, and that the architectural company originally sug gested higher ceilings to al low for indoor stages. Quina Grundhoefer Ar chitects said they hope to get the design nalized by the end of the summer and have bids out to companies by December. Construction would start in January.

Opinion A8 | Santa Rosas Press Gazette Wednesday, August 10, 2011 Last week, the Santa Rosa County Sheriffs Office issued a press release. In it, the department noted it would be enforcing a no trespassing ordinance on land along Cold Water Creek. This land is timberland and is managed by a company out of Pace called Resource Management Services. Now, here is the ironic thing: You can launch a tube or canoe at the Steel Bridge, but where are you able to get out? The land in question became a popular junction because those who had their own floats, tubes and canoes didnt want to rent the equipment. Now, just like others in the city of Milton, the question has been posed about liability. If someone gets injured on the land, who will be held responsible? Well, shouldnt we also worry about who is held responsible or who would be liable if someone was injured anywhere on Cold Water Creek? This is a state water way owned by the public, yet now it is a great risk for people? The risk is finding a place to float down the river without the possibility of being fined or arrested. There is not an easement or right of way on these waters. This is like those who buy or lease land on the beach and then block the public from using the sands or the ocean. Private property is a wonderful thing and must be respected, but when you buy private property next to public property, you must understand there is a limit to the restrictions you can put on public use. When you buy land, there are certain understood rights of way. Those living here in the canoeing capitol of Florida are faced with a unique and dire situation. Public access is being lost to the waters. The questions have not only come before our leaders regarding water, but even access to old cemeteries, like the one a couple of years back outside of Brownsdale. A resident wanted to close off his land as private property, which would have cut off access to the cemetery. Private property is an important thing since we all need our space, but we must nd a way to allow public land and private land to coexist. If we dont, then one day we will have only a select few controlling who has access to the publics water. In the west, there used to be battles over water and as it was once coined, water is power. Well, a powerful precedent is being created here in Santa Rosa County. It is free to get in the water, but somewhere down the line its going to cost you to get out. The problem is, what price are you willing to pay? If you think we are kidding, just think about some events you go to in towns. To park real close is about $20 and the farther away you get from the event, the less expensive a parking place costs. We thought: This land is your land, this land is my land. From California to the New York high land. From the Redwood Forest to the Gulf Stream waters. This land was made for you and me. Apparently that is not to be. Santa Rosa school taxes are increasing The school taxes in Santa Rosa County have increased each year from 2007 to 2010 and are proposed to increase again in 2011. The overall increase in school taxes is projected to be 11.1 percent during this period. If the School District does not seek other sources of revenue in future years, school taxes will continue to increase as they have in the past but at a much higher rate. There are two reasons for the projected increase in the growth rate of school taxes. First, we will eventually emerge from the current real estate recession and then begin another real estate boom. For example, in 2004 before the real estate recession began, single family home building permits were 1,969 as compared to only 448 permits in 2009. If the County goes back to the 2004 level of building permits, in the future our schools will hemorrhage from the increase in students. Second, a recent military BRAC report estimated that beginning in 2012 over 11,000 military personnel are expected to be moving into the Eglin AFB complex which will require additional single family housing in the three-county area (Okaloosa, Walton and Santa Rosa). Given the predicted increase in students caused by growth, as stated above, our School District will be overwhelmed by the need for additional classrooms. The School District will not be able to satisfy the demand for new classrooms using temporary buildings as they have in the past and will have to build some new schools. In the past ten years the School district has built some schools using debt, which is the primary reason the new school budget shows $4.7 million in interest on its loans. I am certain that not many County residents want increased school taxes and increased debt passed on to their children. Several years, ago at a School District budget meeting I recommended school impact fees as a partial solution to the shortfall in classrooms and funds for building new schools. The School Superintendent at the time was not interested in impact fees and said that our County could not legally qualify for school impact fees. Unfortunately, the School Board agreed with him, and the Board Chair volunteered that temporary buildings make excellent classrooms. The truth is, according to Florida law, all the counties in the state are qualied for school impact fees. Currently, 31 counties in Florida have school impact fees and the average county school impact fee is $5,286 for a 2,000 square foot home. If 1,600 new houses are built in our County each year in the future, the total impact fees from these new houses would be $8,457,600 per year. Now why would the School Board and School Superintendent not jump at the chance to increase revenues? I suggest that every resident ask the board members coming up for reelection this question and if they dont agree to work for obtaining school impact fees, then do not vote for them! Tony Apap Chair, Concerned Citizens for Better Government (PC) Pace, Fla. Discouraged patriot I would like to address my letter to all patriots, especially the Santa Rosa Tea Party Patriots. I know many of you feel defeated and discouraged right now, with what has happened the last few days. I would like to encourage you. First, I am proud of a couple of things that have happened in the past few years. Number one is that Obama became president of the United States. Now...close your mouth before a y gets in, and put your eyes back in your head and listen for a minute. Without him becoming president would the sleeping giant have awakened like it did in 2010? I dont think so; we would have gone on with business as usual and all that has been done would not have been exposed. Im also thankful because had he not become president what has happened in Washington these past few days would have happened under the cover of darkness and we would not have known anything about it. This kind of garbage has been going on for a long time, even before Obama became president; we were just sleeping and didnt know it. This is the rst time in a long time that so much attention has been focused on how our country is run. I truly believe that Obamas election was a wake-up call for many Americans. I also believe that we have had victory this week as I think a lot of legislators did not realize how closely they are being watched. This weeks chaos in Washington has shown us the legislators that have really been listening to us; they are the ones who voted against raising the debt ceiling. Youve called their ofces, youve faxed and you have e-mailed and told them what we wanted... dont raise the debt ceiling! The same thing we wanted when we put them in ofce, which was to put our country back in good scal condition by lowering our debt and making the changes needed to pay off our debt. It appears that some, whom we put in ofce, and some who have been there a long time were not listening to us or their values have changed. We have made it very clear what we did not want, and many of them did the exact opposite, they went along with the Washington crowd and now theyll have to pay for it. So, what do we do now? We stay awake! If you have been slumbering, then wake up! If you feel discouraged and want to give up, shake yourself out of that. There is much work to do, no use crying over spilled milk, wipe it up and pour another glass! We must work to see that Obama is put out of ofce and those who didnt do what we asked must go along with him. We need some common sense in Washington as it appears that is a missing component in all of this mess. And, if a candidate is wishy-washy and changes his/her mind from one vote to the other, we dont have time for that... or at least I dont. Im not discouraged, Im red up and a little on the mad side about what has been done to our incredible country by those who have a personal agenda and dont seem to realize that they work for We the People and not President Obama! Furthermore I know how to change it. I personally work to get the right candidate for ofce, and then I simply walk into that voting booth come November 2012 and I pull the handle and I vote those out of ofce who dont seem to be listening. We did it in 2010 and we can do it again! Discouragement only brings a person down, so get up, dust yourself off and get ready for 2012! Sharon Glass Pace, Fla. Giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car keys to a teenage boy. P.J. ORourke Congress and Obama had America on the edge of our seats this week (seats made -and soon to be repossessed -by the Chinese) when they bumbled the debt ceiling issues. Our nances are more messed up than Mike Tysons checkbook, but our leaders seem to think they have served us well by just raising our debt limit. Heroic move. Thinking they solved the problem by extending the debt limit and the supposed cuts past the 2012 elections, Washington patted itself on the back. Just raising the debt limit would be like saying you have xed the DUI problem by raising the illegal blood alcohol level from .08 to 1.2. Problem solved, right? For weeks leading up to whatever deal they cut, Obama and various Republicans worked the press conferences with the bravado of professional wrestlers before a match. Obama warned Eric Cantor (R-VA) not to call his bluff on tax hikes. He then backed off his own tax hikes. Then the Re-pugs backed off from entitlement cuts. Perhaps we have elected the worst poker players of all time. Fundamental to blufng someone is not to tell him up front that you are blufng. I bet they dont play poker at Columbia and Harvard. As they always seem to do on important matters, at the last minute Congress jammed through a bill that no one read but supporters felt pressured to sign in order to stave off yet another pending, Congressmade disaster. They did it with TARP, bailouts, stimulus (a.k.a. porkulus), ObamaCare, and now the debt ceiling and fake cuts scheduled to take place in 2013. The supposed trigger way down the road will start cuts. Trigger, please! It wont happen, and if it does it will be six Repubs and six Dems doing it, with no room for the catalysts of the cuts: the Tea Party and Libertarians. The Tea Party has made the Republicans vote as less of a monolithic group of lemmings like the Democrats. Republicans used to be able to go to Washington and get their power by just not being quite as bad as Democrats. It was a shirts and skins game there; they would just work out a deal and spend more of our money without incident. The Tea Party has been a game changer, and John Boehner now has some cats to herd. He was so mad his face turned from orange to burnt orange. As we know, math is not the strong suit of Americas Democratic voters. Something like 5 of 4 of them do not even understand fractions. Anything you say will pacify them, as long as they can take money from others. Reducing handouts to the moochers out there is like trying to take a salmon from a grizzly bear. They are entitled. Its right there in the name: entitlement. Obama says he will not stand by and let our government default on its debt obligation. Thank you again, Obama, for standing rm against something that no one even suggested. He creates a fake crisis and then saves us from it. Obama saved or created jobs with our money, and he prevented mass murder by bombing Libya (in a good way); he is our savior. Obama then appears on his personal PR appendage, CBS 60 Minutes, to scare seniors by saying he cannot ensure that Social Security checks will go out. But the funny part is that 75 million Americans, otherwise known as Obamas core constituency, get entitlement checks each month. He makes no mention of not sending out welfare checks.

Ask the Preache r Dear S. D., There is a plethora of information on this topic. Many books have been written, movies made and websites created dedicated solely to this subject. Some of these are quite sensational and have to be approached very cautiously. Here is a brief understanding of the Dead Sea scrolls. They were the libraries of a previously unknown first-century Jewish sect. They were kept in caves near the community of Qumran for safekeeping because of the advancing Roman troops in about AD 70. Eventually, the Qumran community was completely destroyed, no one ever returned, and the scrolls were forgotten until they were discovered by accident in 1948 by a Bedouin shepherd. They contain the text of most of the Old Testament and the rules and regulations of the community at Qumran. The Old Testament text from Qumran is 900 years older than any previous copy of the Old Testament, and it is virtually 100% identical. This vindicates the textual integrity of the Old Testament for an additional 1,000 years and probably farther than that. Recently, experts have made discoveries among the documents from Qumran that may be fragments of canonical Christian gospels, which, if verified, could push back the dating of the New Testament to the first decades after the Crucifixion. This would be a huge asset in determining the authenticity, authority and reliability of the New Testament documents. Although, the New Testament documents are still considered, to this day, to be THE MOSTreliable of all ancient documents known to man. Thank you for your question.

These oil spill funds will supple ment, not replace, exist ing BP funds, according to Harper. Commissioner Bob Cole stated he was con cerned about what would happen to the money that is not used at the end of each year. Any funds not used will be given back to the state of Florida, Harper said. The money would not be used for infrastructure improvements, according to commission chairman Lane Lynchard, who said that now that the county has the money in the forefront, it would be up to TEAM and other agen cies to bring companies into the county. This requires us to get out and beat the bush es and get companies into the county, Lynchard said. Commissioner Don Salter said that projects such as the Whiting Avia tion Park and any vacant land in the East Milton Santa Rosa County Indus trial Park could be free in centive to get companies to move into the county. You have to have prod uct to sell to get business to come here, Harper said. Harper gave a deadline of Oct.1 for when he would start dispersing checks to proper entities. It would now be up to the county and to TEAM Santa Rosa to help attract companies to the area. classrooms, Harrell said. Back in 2010, Harrell said that the high school was falling apart, and could potentially be deemed unsafe for students. School board members approved the low bidder Jack Moore Construction in March of last year to work on improvements on the high school, which houses about 500 students. Once students are securely moved into the new building, the school board will start taking bids on the second phase of the project. We have not started taking bids on that part of the project yet, Harrell said. Before we even do that, we have to make sure everything is good on the current project. After doing a strenuous walk through and inspection, Harrell said it could take more than a few days to move a majority of the new furniture into the phase one building. All of the old furniture in the current Jay High School will not be used in the new high school. What is going to take them the longest is getting the furniture into the new building and setting up the computers, Harrell said. Right now, Harrell said he does not have a timeline when the district will be able to start moving into the phase one building. The school district originally looked at rebuilding the high school years before bringing it to the table in 2010. But at that time, construction equipment was too high for the district to consider taking bids. Jack Moore Construction outbid the second lowest bidder by $750,000 back in 2010. Originally, the school board estimated it would cost roughly $10 million to do the project when the cost to build per square foot was $150 and up. Jack Moores bid was roughly 2/3 of that last year. Before construction started in 2010, Harrell estimated Jay High School had not seen renovations done to its foundation for roughly 15 to 20 years. Marsh is the rst black head coach at the Milton High School Football pro gram, and the schools third black head coach. Last year, the local NAACP celebrated the 100th anniversary of the NAACP.

SP O RT S www.srpressgazette.com Wednesday, August 10, 2011 A Section NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Titans cornerback Cortland Finnegan is defending himself on Twitter, say ing he left training camp to deal with a personal matter and isnt upset with his contract. Finnegan wrote Sunday that he has spoken to coaches and team mates and will resume all things asked. He said his personal is sue needed attention, and he will be back playing Monday, when he will answer all questions. My absence had nothing to do with a holdout yet a personal matter that Titan ofcials were aware of. I am grateful for being a Titan, Finnegan wrote in one post. I am also thankful for my current contract and direction of team. The Titans rst noticed Finnegan had left camp when he didnt attend a special teams prac tice Saturday morning, and gen eral manager Mike Reinfeldt said after practice Saturday afternoon that the team had tried unsuc cessfully to reach Finnegan. Re infeldt said they were surprised he had left camp. But Finnegan wrote the Titans knew of his absence and were dis appointed he wasnt there. Being absence from a team function doesnt mean holdout or your unhappy Family issues come up Im human thank you Nashville for understanding, Finnegan wrote. The Titans did not immediate ly respond Sunday to Finnegans statements. Finnegans agent, Terry Wat son, did not respond to a tele phone message left at his. The Titans had just received a counteroffer from Watson on Friday, and Reinfeldt said they promised a response Monday. Finnegan is in the last year of his contract and due to earn more than $3.7 million this season. Weve tried to call him, Re infeldt said Saturday after a team practice at LP Field. Weve not been able to get in touch with him. Its a tough situation. We have 23 guys in the last year of their con tract. I talked to Cortland during the week. Coach (Mike) Munchak did. ... We were totally surprised that he just turned around and left camp. Running back Chris John son has yet to report for training camp, holding out for a new con tract as well. But Johnson has led the NFL in yards rushing since he was drafted No. 24 overall in 2008, and he is scheduled to make $850,000 this season. Reinfeldt said they had told Finnegans agent they would re view the counteroffer over the weekend and respond Monday. Reinfeldt said the Titans have extended the contracts of several young players, including Finnegan in August 2008. Finnegan became a starter in 2007 and is due to make more than $3.7 million in the nal year of that deal. Thats something we thought we could work out an extension both sides would be OK with. It kind of caught us off guard, Re infeldt said. The cornerback was a sev enth-round draft pick in 2006 out of Samford who became a starter by his second season and has started every game he has played in since the start of 2007. He was an All Pro and Pro Bowler in 2008. He has 13 career interceptions but only had two in 2010 when the Titans went 6-10. Finnegans big gest highlight last season might have been when Houston receiv er Andre Johnson swung away at him Nov. 28, drawing both players $25,000 nes. Special to The Press Gazette University of West Flor ida Head Coach Shannan Bergen has announced the signing of ve new addi tions to the 2011-12 Univer sity of West Florida womens basketball roster. The list of in coming Argonauts includes two trans fers from four-year colleges, including a local Pace stand out, two junior col lege transfers and one incoming freshman. I am very pleased with the six newcomers who have decided to come to UWF to further their edu cation and represent our womens basketball pro gram, Bergen said of her incoming class. They are an experienced bunch with many different talents, and I believe they should mesh well with our return ers. I am looking forward to coaching this exciting group! Former Pace stand out Erica Wright joins the UWF squad for her nal year of college eligibility af ter spending four seasons (including a redshirt year) with Spring Hill College in Mobile, Ala. Wright showed the best form of her collegiate ca reer in 2010-11, starting 17 games for the Badgers less than a year after going down with an injury. Wright averaged 8.7 points per game last sea son and knocked down 26 three-point eld goals. Joining the Argonaut roster from the University of Maine is forward Jay mie Druding. A sophomore from Orchard Park, N.Y., Druding spent her rookie season in the NCAA Divi sion I ranks, where she featured 19 times for the Black Bears. Druding aver aged 2.5 points per game in her rst collegiate season, which was highlighted by a 14-minute assignment against Kansas and a seven-point effort against Penn at the famed Palestra in Philadelphia. Pensacola native Ashley Rush returns to her home town after two years at NJCAA powerhouse Gulf Coast Community College. As a freshman in 2009-10, Rush was part of a 32-1 club that took NJCAA National Championship honors, and last season she was a 2nd Team All-Panhandle Con ference pick after averaging 5.8 points and 3.9 assists per game. A deft dis tributor, Rush is also a defensive whiz who averaged 1.3 steals per game last year. Junior Hanna Vette comes to Pen sacola after two seasons at Mineral Area College. Vette, a guard out of Tarkio, Mo., was a 1st Team AllMidwest Community Col lege Athletic Conference selection last season, when she averaged 11.8 points and 5.5 rebounds per game. A deadly shooter, Vette led all NJCAA players in free throw percentage in 2010-11, hitting at an 88.9 percent clip, and she con nected on four three-point eld goals in four separate games. UWFs only rookie on the 2011-12 roster is guard Carly Conley from Severn, Md. Conley averaged 6.5 points and 7.8 rebounds per game as a senior at St. Vin cent Pallotti High School, where she played in 201011. Before that, Conley played three years at Old Mill Senior High School, where she was a key xture in two regional runner-up teams and also featured on the school soccer team. The Argonauts return several key pieces from last years 11-15 (4-8 GSC) campaign, including AllGSC performer SherRyan Scott, who scored a teambest 12.2 points per game last season. Fellow senior Octavia Bearden, who add ed 11.9 points per game and a team-high 40 steals, is also back for her nal year in Pensacola. The 2011-12 season will be Bergens 13th at the helm of the Argonaut ship. UWF is 173-165 under the Radford graduates watch.

The purpose of Ghost Camp is to cast ghosts, tour guides and general volunteers for the upcoming 11th annual Ghost of Milton Walking Tour (Ghost Walk). This annual event, put on as a fundraiser by the Santa Rosa Historical Society, is expected to have an attendance of 1,500 to 2,000 people. Ghost Walk is a fun way to learn about Miltons past while meeting some of its more famous and infamous citizens along the way. It consists of a one-mile walk through the historic district, led by tour guides dressed in period costumes. These guides regale tour-goers with tidbits of history while leading them to approximately 13 locations that are haunted by real, live ghosts, who re-create scenes from their past. Perhaps they relate tales of woe, perhaps tales of foolishness, but all haunt the same area where they once walked in happier days past. The Ghost Walk is a giant history lesson with a spooky edge to it. We never present the same ghost(s) twice. This keeps the people coming back year after year to see what we have come up with!

Wednesday August 10, 2011 FREE EDITION TAKE ONE The Associated Press Betsy McCann and her husband, Jim Forbes, often worried that his mother was growing isolated in her Los Angeles-area home. At 90, Lois Brokus had stopped driving and was sometimes afraid to be alone in her house. Jane and William Merrill also decided that they didnt want his mother living on her own anymore. Then 81, Jane Merrill, who shares her daughter-in-laws name, was still active but in need of companionship. Both families considered nursing homes, assisted living and retirement communities. In the end, they came to the same conclusion: Their homes were the best place for their mothers. But they needed more home. So McCann and Forbes added a 400square-foot bedroom and bathroom to their Escondido, Calif., home; the Merrills converted a two-car garage at their 8-acre spread in Carmel, a suburb of Indianapolis. Now, both older women live with their adult children, with a large degree of independence and privacy. Although it isnt for everyone, it is a choice many families are making. Homebuilders across the country say they are getting an increasing number of requests for such additions, known as mother-in-law suites, granny ats or accessory dwellings. According to the National Association of Home Builders, 62 percent of builders surveyed were working on a home modication related to aging in 2010. About one in ve builders added an entry-level bedroom. About 3.5 million American households last year included adult children and their parents a number expected to rise as the country ages and baby boomers move into retirement, said Nancy Thompson, an AARP spokesperson. To accommodate the growing demand, AARP teamed up with the homebuilders association to create a designation for Certied Aging in Place Specialists, who are trained in designing and modifying buildings for the elderly. About 3,000 builders, contractors, remodelers and architects have been certied. One is Todd Jackson, CEO of San Diegos Jackson Design and Remodeling, which handled the room addition at McCanns home. Theres both a physical component and a sensitivity side to these projects. The family needs to take that into account, said Jackson, who noted that aging parents might be reluctant to move into their childrens homes and might worry about losing their independence. The transition will go over a lot better if you bring the parent into the conversation, Jackson said. Ask them: What do you need? What color do you want? Thats what McCann and her husband did when they decided to build an addition in 2008. Brokus, now 93, was part of the planning. We didnt want her to feel like a guest intruding on our house, McCann said. She kept telling all her friends about how she was involved in the design process and that the paint colors were her choice. Brokus now proudly calls the addition, which includes a bedroom, wet bar and wheelchair-accessible doorways and bathroom, her apartment, McCann said. Every month, she writes a rent check covering the cost of utilities an act that adds to her sense of independence. The arrangement has given the family more time together and greater peace of mind, and may have averted a tragedy in July when Brokus had a heart attack. Had she been alone, McCann said, she might not have called 911. As it was, she just had to walk a few feet for help. The addition, which was part of a major renovation to other parts of the house, cost the McCanns $250,000. The average price for a bedroom addition can run from $100,000 to $400,000, depending on size and amenities, according to builders. For the Merrills, who used a company called Next Door Garage Apartments to do their garage conversion, the cost was much lower. The Indianapolis-based company remodels two-car garages into complete apartments within 10 days for $35,000. (The Merrills, who converted their garage 11 years ago, paid $25,000). The companys owner, Susan Jennings, came up with the idea when she was managing a trust department at a bank and often worked with widows yearning to live with their adult children. Jennings worked with a designer to come up with a dwelling attractive to both the adult children and the older parent. For privacy and independence, the apartment has a separate entrance, full kitchen and wheelchair-accessible features. The biggest advantage is that my husband can sit down with her every evening. Because of that constant contact, he has learned much more about his parents and their lives, the younger Jane Merrill said. He would not have had that if she was in assisted living. However, both Betsy McCann and Jane Merrill caution that this might not work for every family. For one thing, their mothers-in-law are self-sufcient and do not need daily medical care. In both families, they got along well before moving in together. If you cant stand one week or one weekend together, this wont work, McCann said. You need to have realistic expectations about the impact on your life. Thompson, of AARP, offered other tips for families considering building a mother-in-law suite for an aging parent: Decide what your expectations are well in advance, and make sure everyone agrees. Involve the elderly parent in the process. Make sure the addition is built following universal design guidelines. Are counters, bathrooms and doorways wheelchair-accessible? Is there a walk-in shower with grab bars? Opt for entry-level additions to eliminate stairs. Look for a contractor or builder with experience in universal design or aging in place. Check municipal building codes to make sure accessory dwellings are allowed.

A2 | Santa Rosa Free Press Wednesday, August 10, 2011 OPOSSUMS 101 North America is home to millions of Virginia opossums. Americans sometimes use the terms opossum and possum interchangeably. But Virginia opossums are native to North America, and possums are native to Australia. Possums are nocturnal marsupials. The opossums relatives include other marsupials from Down Under kangaroos, koalas and wombats. But because opossums look like rats, they dont share the other mammals popularity. Adult possums dont hang by their tails, Bale said. Their tails cant support their weight. Poor eyesight is why so many are hit by cars. They can only see 6 to 8 inches in front of them, said Barbara Missy Runyan, a wildlife rehabilitator who runs Friends of the Feathered and Furry Wildlife Center in Hunter, N.Y. They cant smell a car coming. And since they are nocturnal, they cross the road when its dark. They can make hissing, sneezing or growling sounds, sometimes described as a purr. They arent likely to dig holes in your yard because they have delicate paws with nails that can be easily ripped out, Bale said. Despite 50 razor-sharp teeth, opossums are generally docile and prefer to avoid confrontation. They can bite, but they prefer playing possum. If confronted, they fall over, start drooling, emit a musky odor that smells like decay, induce diarrhea and slow their breathing so it appears to have stopped. They eat cockroaches, crickets and beetles, snakes, slugs, mice, rats, rotting fruit, human garbage, dead animals and small reptiles. They like dog and cat food, too. Baby opossums start out the size of raisins. A mother can have one to three litters a year. A grown female will weigh between 7 and 9 pounds and a male up to 12 pounds. They are solitary, transient creatures, seldom staying in one place more than a few days. Babies stay with the mother for 4 to 5 months. If they fall off while riding on her back or get left behind when the mother takes off, they are on their own because the mother wont come back, said Leslie Bale, a wildlife rehabilitator and president of the Opossum Society of the United States, which has about 300 members. Rabies in opossums is rare because their body temperature is too low to support the virus. They are good climbers, using their tail for balance, but they can fall into swimming pools when trying to get a drink and into trash cans when going after food. To keep possums out of your yard, cover pools and trash cans, remove food and water sources, keep trees and shrubs clear of fences and dont let fruit from trees rot on the ground. A few companies sell repellent granules made of fox urine that you shake on the ground. Manufacturers say the product, $15 to $20, is 100 percent organic so it wont hurt your cat or dog. Though dogs and cars are the possums main predators in cities, foxes, coyotes, bobcats, owls and other animals prey on them in the wild. Associated Press By Steve Liner Florida Freedom Newspapers This is like a big, Wausau family reunion, said Wausau Possum Festival and Fun Day General Chairman Jim Tharp as he opened the 42nd annual version of the event a national womans magazine called a truly unique community event. But a combination of soaring heat index and sagging economy conspired to reduce the normal crowds for the 42nd annual Wausau Possum Festival and Fun Day Saturday. Still, the event was filled with laughter, food, music and the signature possum auction. It was a good day, Tharp said. It was a good day for an off year. By off year, Tharp meant that the largest and most nancially successful festival years are even-numbered, when the small Panhandle town is a Mecca for political ofce seekers from across Florida and the country. And even this year, the Possum Festival lived up to a national reputation as one of the most unique local celebrations, all because it honors all things possum. Vendors at the arts and crafts show offered everything from possum ice cream to possum breath scented candles and said business during the day was satisfactory if far from brisk. Attendance at major events of the festival, such as its parade, the possum auction and Fridays crowning of the Possum King and Queen, was consistently around 300. The biggest excitement of the day was generated around the possum auction, where a bidding war was rumored between the two candidates for state attorney who were in attendance. However, the men did not participate, so the top possum went to Washington County School Superintendent Dr. Sandra Cook for $250. Proceeds from the days fundraising typically go to the Wausau Volunteer Fire Department, and this year was no exception. But special contributions were being sought by the Wausau Garden Club as well to have the portion of State Road 77 through downtown designated a Blue Star Memorial Highway in honor of the towns military veterans. A plaque is planned for placement at the Possum Monument in downtown Wausau; however, the club has only a few days to raise a remaining estimated $2,500 to achieve the designation so the memorial can be placed during a planned Veterans Day celebration.

Santa Rosa Free Press| A3 Wednesday, August 10, 2011 LOS ANGELES (AP ) Peo ple have been calling Leslie Bale about opossums since 1982 when she started on the graveyard shift as a 911 dis patcher for the Irvine Police Department. The calls came from hom eowners or security guards who thought they had prowl ers. Call after call turned out to be opossums, she said. Bale still gets calls about opossums, but these days its as a wildlife rehabilitator and president of the Opos sum Society of the United States, which has about 300 members. North America is home to millions of Virginia opos sums, but for a creature so commonly found in back yards and along roadways, this nocturnal marsupial is the subject of many myths and misperceptions. Colloquially, Americans sometimes use the terms opossum and possum inter changeably. But while Vir ginia opossums are native to North America, possums are native to Australia. The opossums relatives include other marsupials from Down Under kanga roos, koalas and wombats. But because opossums look like rats, they dont share the other mammals popularity. Its the furless tail that sets people off, said Barba ra Missy Runyan, a wild life rehabilitator who runs Friends of the Feathered and Furry Wildlife Center in Hunter, N.Y., and who thinks opossums are adorable. But they dont hang by their tails, Bale said. Their tails cant support their weight. Poor eyesight is why so many are hit by cars. The opossum does 90 percent of its searching through scent, said Runyan. They can only see six to eight inches in front of them. They cant smell a car coming. And since they are nocturnal, they cross the road when its dark. They can make hissing, sneezing or growling sounds, sometimes described as a purr. They arent likely to dig holes in your yard because they have delicate paws with nails that can be easily ripped out, Bale said. Despite 50 razor-sharp teeth, opossums are gener ally docile and prefer to avoid confrontation, said Kim Ash by, a wildlife rehabilitator in Raleigh, N.C. They can bite, but they prefer playing possum. If confronted, they fall over, start drooling, emit a musky odor that smells like decay, induce diarrhea and slow their breathing so it appears to have stopped, said Ashby, a retired emergency room nurse. Most predators will walk away because they wont eat anything that has been dead for a while. They eat cockroaches, crickets and beetles, snakes, slugs, mice, rats, rotting fruit, human garbage, dead animals and small reptiles. Bale calls them natures little sanitation engineers. They like dog and cat food too. If people are feed ing dogs and cats outside, they are probably feeding their local possums as well, Ashby said. But you can also take steps to keep them out of your yard. Cover pools and trash cans, remove food and water sources, keep trees and shrubs clear of fences and dont let fruit from trees rot on the ground. A few companies sell repel lent granules made of fox urine that you shake on the ground. Manufacturers say the product, $15 to $20, is 100 percent organic so it wont hurt your cat or dog. While dogs and cars are the possums main preda tors in cities, foxes, coyotes, bobcats, owls and other ani mals prey on them in the wild. Bale works with 10 back yard rehabilitators in South ern California. They get about 1,000 calls a year to help with orphaned opos sums. sports medicine specialist, said the academys old policy was often ignored because it recommended limiting or avoiding sports even in common hot weather conditions. The new policy is more detailed and nuanced, recommending that athletes be evaluated individually for play in hot weather. Still, Bergeron warned that overzealousness can be dangerous even for healthy kids, and even in relatively tame summer weather. You can take somebody in 80-degree heat and you can kill them if you work them hard enough, he said. The guidelines dont list temperature or humidity cutoffs, but say safety should be the top priority. Other academy advice includes: Teams should have emergency plans with trained personnel and treatment available and policies for avoiding heat illness. Give kids about two weeks to adapt to preseason sessions, gradually increasing intensity and duration. Closely monitor more vulnerable kids, including those who are overweight or have diabetes. Make sure athletes are well-hydrated before practice or games. During activity, kids aged 9-12 should drink about half a cup to a cup of water every 20 minutes; for teens, 5 or 6 cups an hour. Sports drinks containing electrolytes and sodium should be offered during extra strenuous activity. Educate everyone about signs of heat stress, including dizziness, muscle cramps, headaches and nausea. Kids with symptoms should be sidelined and treated immediately; athletes should be encouraged to report if teammates seem to be struggling. Now on Mediacom Channel 21 6009993 CHICAGO (AP ) Playing sports in hot, steamy weather is safe for healthy children and teen athletes, so long as precautions are taken and the drive to win doesnt trump common sense, the nations largest pediatricians group says. New guidelines from the American Academy of Pediatrics arrive just as school sports ramp up in sultry August temperatures. The advice, released Monday, comes a week after two Georgia high school football players died following practices in 90-plus degree heat. Authorities were investigating if the weather contributed. The guidelines replace a more restrictive policy based on old thinking that kids were more vulnerable to heat stress than adults. New research shows thats not true, the academy says. With adequate training, water intake, time-outs and emergency treatment available on the sidelines, healthy young athletes can play even in high heat and humidity within reason, the guidelines say. The more educated parents, athletes and staff are about risks associated with heat illness, the more likely they will think twice before allowing a competitive culture to overtake sound sensibilities, said Dr. Cynthia Devore, co-author of the policy and a physician for schools in the Rochester, NY area.. Government data released last week showed that more than 3,000 U.S. children and teens younger than 20 received emergency-room treatment for nonfatal heat illness from sports or exercise between 2001 and 2009. A few young athletes die annually from heat-related illness. Over a 13-year period, 29 high school football players died from heat stroke, data from the American Football Coaches Association and others show. Football is a special concern, because players often begin intense practice during late-summer heat, wearing uniforms and padding that can be stiing.
