75 cents Saturday, November 19, 2011 Gazette Santa Rosas Press Find breaking news at www.srpressgazette.com Tweet us @srpressgazette and friend us on facebook.com Agents visit BOCC, skip TEAM ofces By Bill Gamblin news@srpressgazette.com On Tuesday, agents with the Federal Bureau of In vestigations returned to Santa Rosa County. Santa Rosa County At torney Angie Jones con rmed the visit to the Santa Rosa County Board of County Commissioner Of ces as agents spoke with Santa Rosa County Admin istrator Hunter Walker. Jones said nothing was taken from the county of ces. In August, federal agents served two subpoe nas to Jones and TEAM Santa Rosa Executive Di rector Cindy Anderson for a host of documents to be presented before a federal grand jury in September. Investigators on Tues day did not stop at the TEAM Santa Rosa ofces. In September, during the federal grand jury appear ance in Pensacola, Ander son alone turned over four reams of paper in addition to other electronic docu ments concerning the fed eral authorities requests. Jones believed the visit was a continuation of the investigation the grand jury and federal ofcials were focused on during the September session in Pen sacola. Jones and Anderson were asked to deliver a huge list of records, both printed and electronic, which included: All discussions, nego tiations, sales agreements, appraisals, nancing plans and purchase of properties in the county owned by Wil liam Bill Pullum, his son Bart Pullum, Garrett Wal ton, William McKelvy and former State Sen. Charles Clary. Discussions between any commissioner and the Team Santa Rosa board or staff members regarding any properties owned by Bill Pullum, Walton, McK elvy or Clary from 2001 to the present. Emergency manage ment services consultations and contracts between the county and Fitch and Asso ciates dating from January 2005 to the present. Discussions regard ing the countys Lifeguard Ambulance contract from January 1999 to present. Records of any past or present commissioners travel to Honduras or the island of Guanaja with or at the request of Bill Pullum or Bart Pullum, including information on the travel ers involvement with the Honduran government and any transacted business on behalf of Bill Pullum, Team Santa Rosa, any United States company or Santa Rosa County. By Mathew Pellegrino mpellegrino@srpressgazette. com The countys economic development council came to commissioners asking for more incentives for businesses who are looking to come into the county. Last Thursday, Shan non Ogletree, who repre sents TEAM Santa Rosa, the countys economic development wing, said their group has been eye ing options for businesses that come into the county. Those options include giv ing those businesses a re bate on their property tax once theyve established themselves in the county. But that incentive was one too many for commis sioners, who thought that TEAM should not cut busi nesses too much slack. According to Ogletrees proposal, the property tax rebate would be given to businesses based on the number of full-time jobs created that pay 115 per cent above the average county wage. The average wage equates to roughly $14.69 an hour. In October, TEAM San ta Rosa Executive Direc tor Cindy Anderson asked commissioners to allow the county to still use in centives to bring busi nesses in, but also allow businesses in that pay 85 percent or more above the average wage, just while unemployment is high. Ogletree said that this incentive could run in con junction with the property tax break they were sug gesting. In October, it was an nounced that unemploy ment had dropped from 10 to 9.6 percent during the month of September when about 600 more people in the county had found jobs. County commissioner Jim Melvin said he wanted to make sure that the con tract read that the rebate would be given to jobs cre ated and retained. Recently, Clearwire Broadband Services, lo cated in East Milton, cut 225 of the nearly 600 jobs it brought to the county in 2010. Clearwire is a techni cal call center which helps clients call to get assis tance in networking their homes. Ogletree said that un like the Clearwire situa tion, if a company cannot retain its employees, it will not receive the incentive package. If the company loses employees, they do not re ceive the incentives, Ogle tree said. If they pick back up, they can reapply for the incentives. Ogletree said business es had the option to apply for the rebate once a year. The county would look over Area agencies in need of food, clothing donations By Bill Gamblin news@srpressgazette.com With the holidays approach ing, the need to help others less fortunate than us is magnied. An example of this can be found in Milton at the Family Re source Program. As of Nov. 16, the center has distributed food, clothing or cash to 55 families in need. However, in doing so, it has depleted sev eral of its resources especially its food pantry. We try to give families a three-day supply of food, said Family Resource Program Direc tor Jewell Miller. Just on Tues day alone, we helped 16 families with food, and there were four or more people per family. Right now we are in a tight spot because the support we get from area churches is down and we havent anything to help those with needs even this Thanksgiv ing. Miller said what was on the shelves was all they had avail able on Nov. 16, with two more assistance days before Thanks giving. We help those in need on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., and now it is hard to know how much longer we will be able to help. The Family Resource Pro gram has been on Elva Street since it was displaced by the Mil ton re in 2009. Miller pointed out they not only assist with food and nan cial assistance when necessary, but they help with clothes. We have quite a bit of cloth ing, but the main thing we could use are mens and boys jeans, Miller said. In November 2010, the Family Resource Program assisted 78 families for the month and 1,065 for the year. Their only sources of funding are donations from individuals and churches as well as some funding they received from Unit ed Way of Santa Rosa County. Miller said volunteers also are needed when it comes to sorting clothes and helping people when they come in need of assistance. In 2010, the Family Resource Program got a donation at the last moment, which allowed them to distribute 12 turkeys to families, but Miller doesnt know at this point if they will even be able to do that again this year despite the need being just as FBI returns to county Speak Out Let Santa Rosans know what you think Inside | Page A2 srpressgazette.com 623-5887 BASKET B ALL: MILTON AND J A Y TIP OFF SEASON WITH WINS SPORTS, A8 TEAM wants business incentives Teen rider in dirt bike accident dies See GIVING A7 See TEAM A7 See TEAM A7 Obituaries .....................................A2 Speak Out .....................................A2 Sudoku ..........................................A2 Opinion ........................................A4 Sports ............................................A8 Classieds .....................................

Sixteen-year-old Kyano Mercer of Milton was traveling northbound on the Blackwater Heritage Trail at around 3:50 p.m. Monday on a motor ized dirt bike that was more than 50ccs when he attempted to cross Park Avenue without stopping. He ran into the front end of a Kia driven by Mar sha Young of Milton who was traveling east on Park Ave. After striking the car, Mercer was ejected from the bike and thrown in front of the Kia and run over. The ve hicle traveled 70 feet before stopping following the impact, according to the report. Mercer did not appear to be wear ing a helmet when the Press Gazette arrived on scene. Milton Police could not conrm whether the minor was wearing a helmet or not. Following the incident, Mercer was transported in critical condition via LifeFlight to Sacred Heart Hospitals Trauma Unit in Pensacola. Milton Police Chief Greg Brand said motorized vehicles are prohibited on the Blackwater Heritage Trail. MA T HEW PELLEGRINO | Press Gazette Kyano Mercer, 16, was hospitalized Monday after riding a dirt bike into the front end of this Mercer died Wednesday.P hotos by BILL G AM B LIN | Press Gazette The only food left for those in need at the Family Resource Program in Milton is what you see here. The program had helped more than 55 people as of Wednesday.

Wednesday, 8:41 p.m. Yes, I would like to comment on the garbage dump we have on Stewart Street next to the Gulf Power substation. People climb into these recycling bins and throw trash everywhere and I end up picking up a trash bag full of garbage from my yard every day. Move these bins to the dump where garbage goes since there is not much recycling going on. All they do is litter. Also, I am about a clean cut representative for the county instead of a hippie. He ought to get a haircut. Wednesday, 8:08 p.m. Hi Gene, this is Wallace. I read your Speak Out and I also have headaches since Gulf Power put in the smart meter on my home. These meters are very smart and they can record all conversations through the wires of my home. I am afraid to yell at my wife anymore. My headaches are caused by stress I am under. Also they increased our power rates by 10 percent to pay for this technology. Thank you. Wednesday, 7:25 p.m. Yes, this is Kurt. I would like to comment on Wednesdays letter to the editor. A big thumbs up to Mrs. (Deb) Pruitt, owner of Polka-a-dots General Store. I think this is the best letter about the city to the editor I have read this year. Everyone needs to get behind her and get the city of Milton on the right track. We need to get the city looking really good and bring business back downtown. Wednesday, 5:54 p.m. This is Dave. The Avalon construction problem at the entrance island to Timber Ridge subdivision is only one of the problems. The other problem, is that there is no crossover at the intersection. The northbound lanes require a U-turn in order to enter or exit the subdivision. With the heavy traffic on Pin Oak Avenue, we were actually hoping for a traffic light at that intersection. A lot of Chantilly subdivision residents also use Pin Oak as a shortcut to get to Avalon Boulevard. This setup also makes it very confusing when giving visitors or service people directions to the subdivision. It needs to be changed. Wednesday, 3:23 p.m. My name is Ava. I would like to comment on the Christmas lights in Downtown Milton. I have lived here for 20 years and the lights are ugly, the same and old. Many are burned out over and over. They have turned them on way to early. The day after Thanksgiving would have been early enough. And the green tree is ugly, there is just no pizzazz. Thank you. Wednesday, 2:14 p.m. Hi, this is Jan. Gulf Power recently changed out my meter to a smart meter. I was told a meter reader was no longer needed to read my meter at my house and that my usage data transmitted from the smart meter to Gulf Power. My monthly service charge went from $10 a month to $10.89 and I was told the service fee was to pay for the meter readers and render me a bill. I receive my bill online. So this and the rate increase is just another bill we can no longer afford. Wednesday, 2:11 p.m. This is Jan. I wanted to give a heads up to all Mediacom customers who got the digital cable boxes so they can view channels after the Nov. 8 switch over. These customers need to pay attention to their monthly bills. I got three adapters and was assured they were free, however, on my last two bills there was a charge for the digital adapters. People should pay attention to their bills so they are sure they are not being billed for these free adapters by Mediacom. Thank you. Tuesday, 9:34 a.m. Yes, I would like to thank the Milton High School NJROTC for the free fish for veterans on Veterans Day this past Friday. There was a little girl in uniform, Brittney Loveland, who was extremely polite and helpful. I just thank her and the commander of the NJROTC at Milton. That little girl went above and beyond for me and my family. Thank you so much, this is Cindy.M onday, 12:54 p.m. I am upset with our city leaders about shutting down Scratch Ankle. I feel the organizers have been doing a fine job and had to deal with issues beyond their control. This year, they had the Arts Festival the weekend before and would want to bring their families out a second weekend to the same place. I am a vendor and I couldnt do both. How can city leaders make such a decision without all the facts? Do they not care about Miltons heritage?M onday, 10:18 a.m. This is Calvin. I am wondering why the county wants another sales tax. Dont they get enough with the franchise fee on our light bills, a communication tax, county cellphone tax, alcohol tax, and they still get money from the Jay oil fields and the gas tax for roads. They need to show us how much they get from each of these and where the money is spent. They get enough taxes already so they could pay to build a courthouse.

Local Santa Rosas Press Gazette| A3 Saturday, November 19, 2011 By TOM McLAUGHLIN Florida Freedom Newspapers A Leon County grand jury is looking at events surrounding a Miltonbased billboard companys removal of an estimated 2,000 trees along Interstate 10 in Northwest Florida. Willie Meggs, the State Attorney for Floridas Second Judicial Circuit, conrmed the grand jury is taking a look at some aspect of the trees being removed by Bill Salter Ad vertising company. Several publications were reporting that State Sen. Greg Evers testied Tuesday after receiving a subpoena issued by the State Attorneys Ofce. It is assumed Evers is acting only as a witness in the in vestigation. Meggs said the grand jury presently convened will conclude its work in the rst week of December. Evers himself could not conrm the subpoena, but said that he had been inter viewed by the Florida De partment of Law Enforce ment about three months ago in connection with the felled trees. Meggs acknowledged Wednesday his ofce had obtained a copy of the FDLE investigation to which Evers referred. Evers became em broiled in the tree removal issue when an environmen tal group called Citizens for a Scenic Florida accused him of using his inuence as then House Transporta tion Committee chairman to help Salters agency get around state regulations. Evers maintained Wednesday, as he did in June when the Citizens for a Scenic Florida allegations arose, that he was simply helping Salter cut through Florida Department of Transportation red tape. I asked DOT to return a phone call to a constituent to discuss some issues, he said. DOT hadnt returned phone calls in about nine months. Evers said he spoke to then-Florida Department of Transportation Secre tary Stephanie Kopelousos at a function both attended, and later also emailed her about contacting Salter. He said the request that Salter be contacted, and a follow up to see that contact had been made, were his only actions as a legislator on Bill Salter Advertisings behalf. In June Bill Jonson, president of Citizens for a Scenic Florida, accused Evers of convincing Ko pelousos to waive tree-cut ting permit requirements for Salter. Evers was the one who talked to the DOT secretary and said, in ef fect, Weve got a business here that doesnt want to pay these costs. I think you should waive them, said Jonson, a city councilman in Clearwater. Jonson said Wednesday he was unaware of either an FDLE investigation or a grand jury being convened in regard to the allegations hed raised. Evers said in June he had not inquired, but as sumed Bill Salter Advertis ing had received the per mits it needed. I think, because DOT had not responded they went ahead and issued the permits, he said. In June Jonson claimed billboards put up by Salters agency were constructed without providing for miti gation for the trees taken down and without remov ing out-of-date billboards that are supposed to be torn down when new out door advertising goes up. Email exchanges ob tained from DOT as public records by the environ mental group and its attor ney seem to indicate state ofcials were clear on what type of vegetation manage ment plans would have to be submitted for Salters company to obtain permits to place billboards. It also found no evidence the required plans were ever submitted. The email exchange be tween DOT ofcials, Evers, Kopelousos and Salter Ad vertising representatives were obtained by Florida Freedom Newspapers. The environmental group alleged, citing DOT records, that on Jan. 22, 2009, 44 vegetation man agement permit applica tions were turned in by the Bill Salter Advertisings general manager. All 44 of the permit ap plications were taken to the DOT ofce in Milton and their receipt was acknowl edged on Jan. 29, 2009 by DOT ofcial James Lun sford, group leaders said. DOT records further indicated at least 1,200 trees were cut down with in a subset of these 44 sites, the environmental group said. One site was apparently at the I-10 off ramp at State Road 85 in Crestview. DOT ofcials in Milton and Chipley forwarded a Daily News reporter seek ing conrmation of the Citi zens for a Scenic Florida al legations to Tallahassee. DOT Tallahassee spokesman Dick Kane was not available for comment late Wednesday afternoon. Salter did not return phone calls seeking com ment. By Mathew Pellegrino mpellegrino@srpressgazette. com A school bus crash that left one dead in Navarre is still under investigation according to representa tives from Durham School Bus services that provide school bus transportation for the Santa Rosa County School District. The crash occurred last Thursday at the intersec tions of U.S. Highway 98 and Whispering Pines Bou levard in Navarre. The bus driver, Jac queline Lee Rock, 58, of Navarre, suffered minor injuries after she ran a red light at the intersection and slid into the side of a Chevrolet Tracker driven by 64-year-old George E Potter III, from Navarre at around 2p.m. Potter was pronounced dead at the scene. At Tuesdays school board meeting, two region al representatives from Durham came before board members to give an update on the crash investigation and what they had found while doing their own in vestigation aside from the Florida Highway Patrol. This has been a bad week for Santa Rosa Coun ty, said superintendent Tim Wyrosdick. Roger Bell, Durhams Operation Supervisor for Milton area buses said that the bus service provider has already undergone its own internal investigation and is still waiting on clo sure to the Florida High way Patrol investigation. We are taking every effort to investigate this fully, Bell said. Bell said that once ac cidents like this occur, Dur ham undergoes an exten sive investigation including an internal audit of their own employees. Bell said Durham looked at Rocks driving le and made sure all of her infor mation and licenses were up to date. We made sure their CDL was current, their re cord was clean and if they had proper training, Bell said. The audit showed management is doing a good job with policies and procedures. Wyrosdick applauded Durhams effort to investi gate the matter fully. Bell and representatives from Durham did not return phone calls concerning the Florida Highway Patrol re port as of press time. This has been taken very seriously from our per spective, Wyrosdick said. We want to make sure this type of action is taken very seriously. Along with auditing the drivers les, Durham also audited other random em ployees databases to make sure the audit was fair. Durham operates more than 12,000 school buses and serves over 300 school districts in 29 states across the country. Accident that left one dead is under investigation Milton businessman faces probe

Opinion A4 | Santa Rosas Press Gazette Saturday, November 19, 2011 According to CBS News, the number of people in the U.S. living in poverty in 2010 rose for the fourth year in a row, representing the largest number of Americans in poverty in the 52 years since such estimates have been published by the U.S. Census Bureau. MSNBC said, The U.S. poverty rate remains among the highest in the developed world. Lets look at a few poverty facts. Heritage Foundation researchers Dr. Robert Rector and Rachel Shefeld laid out some facts about the poor in their report Understanding Poverty in the United States: Surprising Facts About Americas Poor (9/13/2011). Eighty percent of poor households have air conditioning. Nearly three-fourths have a car or truck, and 31 percent have two or more. Twothirds have cable or satellite TV. Half have one or more computers. Fortytwo percent own their homes. The average poor American has more living space than the typical nonpoor person in Sweden, France or the U.K. Ninetysix percent of poor parents stated that their children were never hungry during the year because they couldnt afford food. The Material WellBeing of the Poor and the Middle Class Since 1980 (10/25/2011) is a research paper by professor Bruce D. Meyer of the University of Chicago and The National Bureau of Economic Research and professor James X. Sullivan of the University of Notre Dame. In it they report: Our results show evidence of considerable improvement in material well-being for both the middle class and the poor over the past three decades. Median income and consumption both rose by more than 50 percent in real terms between 1980 and 2009. In addition, the middle 20 percent of the income distribution experienced noticeable improvements in housing characteristics: living units became bigger and much more likely to have air conditioning and other features. The quality of the cars these families own also improved considerably. Similarly, we nd strong evidence of improvement in the material well-being of poor families. The grim ofcial measures of poverty or income stagnation reported are the result of a number of biases that understate well-being, such as relying exclusively on narrow income measures that do not reect all the resources available to the household for consumption. Income measures fail to capture important components of economic well-being, such as wealth and the ownership of durables, e.g., houses and cars. For example, ofcial measures would consider a retired couple who owned their car and mortgage-free $700,000 home and lived on $20,000 savings to be poor. Clearly, their income does not reect their material well-being. Income Mobility in the U.S. from 1996 to 2005 (11/13/2007) is a report by the U.S. Department of the Treasury that shows considerable income mobility of individuals in the U.S. economy. Roughly half of taxpayers who began in the bottom income quintile in 1996 moved up to a higher income group by 2005. Among those with the very highest incomes in 1996 the top 1/100 of 1 percent only 25 percent remained in this group in 2005. Moreover, the median real income of these top taxpayers declined over the study period. These ndings conrm previous studies dating back to the 1960s reaching the same conclusion, namely: At different periods of time, different people occupy different income groups, but the overall trend is upward. What about the concentration of wealth? In 1918, John D. Rockefellers fortune accounted for more than half of 1 percent of total private wealth. To compile the same half of 1 percent of the total private wealth in the United States today, youd have to combine the fortunes of Microsofts Bill Gates ($59 billion) and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg ($19 billion), but with 10 other multibillionaires in between. Our congressionally caused recession has indeed caused needless hardship for many Americans, but the big poverty and income stagnation hype is part and parcel of an agenda to make us more accepting of politicians getting their hands deeper into our pocketbooks in the name of helping the poor.

Obama taking control of radio and TV Wednesday, Comrade Obama took control of all radio and TV stations across the United States, much in the same way Hugo Chavez did six months into his presidency in Venezuela. I coordinated spotters and had them stand a vigilant watch outside the FCC ofces in Washington, D.C. They were prepared to call in 200 protesters and do what was necessary to ensure the FCC returned control of our airwaves back to the people. Some of these people were Cuban exiles who are well aware of the path this nation is going down under this president. Operation FCC was called off as soon as I got word, via text on my cellphone, that our broadcasting capabilities were back in the hands of the people. Today, the FCC chairman, Comrade Julius Genachowski, stated he wished he was able to get control of our cellphones and the internet too. Hmm says I. I got a hold of the FCC Chairmans direct line and called him up. He had just left for the day, so I left the following messages. 1. I want the FCC to place my cellphone on an FCC DO NOT CALL list. In other words, I do not want the federal government calling, texting me or telling me anything. I stated I do not trust this current government and I stated that Obamas days are numbered. I stated we have private news outlets all over this country and Obama and the federal government have no need to reach me. If an asteroid is about to hit the earth, Hannity will tell me via breaking news on Fox! 2. I told the director of the FCC to start looking for a new job, because his butt is red Nov. 6, 2012, along with the rest of these Communist miscreants infesting our government. 3. I stated that if Obama tries to take control of all media and broadcasting airwaves right before the general election to remain in power under the guise of Marshal Law, I have a contingency in place to counter him. Operation FCC will be initiated. There you go. Remember. Rules for Radicals can be applied back at the domestic enemy forces in our country. Geoff Ross, Navarre Spooky night enjoyable I just wanted to take a minute to tell the Milton Historical Society how much I enjoyed attending my rst Ghost Walk. The amount of time and work that went into producing such an enjoyable production was much appreciated. I heard so many interesting facts about the history of Milton and the surrounding areas. The character actors made the history lesson fun to learn! Thank you for the wonderful experience. Next year, put the Ghost Walk on your calendar. You wont be disappointed.

S HARE Y O UR OPINION S Is midnight on Thanksgiving too early to shop? Pro Con MAT BILL MINORITY VIEWPOINT Walter WilliamsMat, you greedy so-and-so I can imagine how you and corporate people think: One more dollars is never too much to ask. Already we have heard the cries from those upset over Christmas lights placed in downtown Milton and turned on before Veterans Day. Now you want to move the rst day of the Christmas shopping season to Thanksgiving night. Why? Isnt it already absurd enough that companies are posting their Black Friday (Thursday) specials on the Internet in advance of the sale? And for what? Is it so a few bean counters can squeeze one more day (and maybe a few million more dollars) out of the Christmas shopping season? Ah, its all about money. Give me a break! Call me crazy or stupid, but Thanksgiving is one of the few days left were people can spend time with their families and enjoy each other. Its one of the few holidays that hasnt been overly marketed. We dont sell gaudy Thanksgiving lights to string along your eves. We dont sell Thanksgiving costumes for everyone to wear. We just cook a meal and enjoy together-time with our families and friends. And now, corporate greed wants to interfere with that. Why sit and enjoy each other? Heck, you could be out spending money! If we do not watch what is taking place, you will soon get your gifts and exchange them at 10 or 11 a.m. Christmas Day. I keep hearing groups express the need to maintain the family unit and spend time together or visit with extended family, yet we blindly follow the lead of those who suggest stores stay open and not allow workers time with their families. Before you tell me I am against free enterprise, let me say: I am not. But the enterprising of Christmas has gotten more than a little bit out of hand. Many stores are bringing back layaway. Why? They know times are tough and want to give you weeks to pay for that December splurge. They want the money you wouldnt normally spend. In this tough economy, everyone is having to do more, work longer and accomplish more with less. Now, these stores want to stay open on Thanksgiving. Who will work the stores? Well, the employees, of course. Did the stores even give a thought about their associates who will have to sacrice time with family just so the company can bank a few extra bucks? Dont expect those dollars to be spent on giving people jobs. Companies are keeping all the gravy for themselves these days. While to some, this sounds great, and there will be plenty of people who cant wait to go shopping Thursday night, but I wonder: Is it too much to ask for you to pause and wait until the following morning? There was no problem with waiting until 8, 9 or 10 a.m. to go shopping when I was a kid. Then as I got older, it was moved to 3, 4, or 5 a.m. in some cases. Now we might as well choreograph Thursday night with World Wrestling Entertainment, because it is going to be a foolish battle royal. Two women full of turkey and cranberries body slamming and hitting each other with back elbows to lay claim to Sarana Fijit. Lets get real and demand the stores get equally realistic in how we celebrate the season.Night Owls Bill, we all know how you get after eating. The rst thing you do is lean back in your chair and fall asleep. We all also know just how cheap you are. Youre so tight, you creek when you walk. No wonder you dont like the idea of sales on Thanksgiving evening. Youd sleep through them all. Everyone loves Thanksgiving, but the one thing I dread every year (besides doing the dishes afterwards), is the alarm going off at 4 a.m. the next morning. The alarm attempts to wake me from the beer, wine and turkey that have all but put me into a deep coma. I chug three cups of coffee and make my way out the front door to the nearest store to make yet a deeper hole in my wallet. The sleep depravation only encourages me to buy things I dont need because Im not fully awake and dont always realize just how much money Im blowing. But I guess thats the point of Black Friday: To get people to spend money. Still, instead of spending money, I like the idea of spending Friday morning in bed while I get over my turkey and beer hangover. While not all of us partake in drinking during Thanksgiving, its easy to say that after a Thanksgiving meal, everyone retreats to the nearest soft spot for a siesta. By the time we get up from our nap, we are full of energy. Drowsy, yes, but still full of energy. That would be the perfect time to hit the stores. If youre late getting home, dont worry. There will be lots of leftovers waiting to be consumed. Plus, whether you are from the south or the north, most people know that it gets painstakingly cold around 3 or 4 a.m. But right around midnight, its never that cold. Now, while I dont think you mind the cold with that polar bear belly, I still think its easier to wake up at midnight than camp out overnight only to wake up to nd your spot in line has been overtaken by a television hoarder. This option is going to make shopping less stressful and keep people from losing sleep over the change, unless of course, its because they have visions of at screen televisions dancing in their heads the night before. You cant really call the holiday Black Friday anymore, because Walmart starts its holiday shopping deals at 10 p.m. Thursday. Target and other major retailers will start their busiest shopping day of the year at midnight on Thursday. But Bill, think about it. We also wont have as much Black Friday trafc to deal with either. Many devoted shoppers will hit the stores Thursday night and be done with their shopping before you come out of your foodinduced coma. The slackers will get up on Friday, pick through the remains on the shelves and go home. More sleep, less trafc? Whats wrong with that Bill? I guess you have fun sitting behind a row of cars on Highway 90 on a daily basis.

Local A6 | Santa Rosas Press Gazette Saturday, November 19, 2011 By Theresa Friday Extension Faculty-Residential Horticulture UF/IFAS Santa Rosa County Lurking just around the corner is Halloween. While thoughts of candy and scary costumes may be on your mind, lets take a look at some be-witching horticulture curiosities. Witch hazel Within the vast plant world, the Hamamelidaceae is known as the witch-hazel family. The horticultural name means together with fruit because its fruit, owers, and next years leaf buds all appear on the branch simultaneously, a rarity among woody plants. Witch hazels name upholds mysterious connotations. In colonial America, the shrubs exible forked branches were a favorite witching stick of dowsers used for searching out hidden waters or precious metals. This has nothing to do with witches, but rather originates from the old English word for pliable branches wych. In England dowsers call an elm (Ulmus glabra) the witch hazel tree. When early British settlers arrived in the Americas, they fancied our witch hazel as the logical replacement for dowsing chores, given its pliable, crooked branches. There are several landscape ornamentals in this family including the Chinese witch hazel (Hamamelis mollis), witch hazel (Hamamelis virginiana) and the very popular Chinese fringe bush (Loropetalum chinensis). Witches Broom At this time of year hearing someone mention a witchs broom may not seem that out of the ordinary, but have you ever heard it mentioned any other time of the year? Occasionally, plants will form unusual and alarming growths. When a plant exhibits a dense mass of shoots growing from a single point that resembles a broom or a birds nest we call it witches broom. In medieval times, mysterious and unexplainable occurrences were often blamed on witchcraft. Brooms during this time were made of bundles of twigs. The term witches broom comes from the German word hexenbesen, which means to bewitch (hex) a bundle of twigs (besom). A number of stresses, both biological and environmental, can lead to the formation of brooms. They can be caused by a number of organisms including fungi, mites, insects, viruses, bacteria and mistletoes. Additionally, some brooms appear to be caused by genetic mutations in the buds of the branches. Unlike brooms caused by living organisms, there is usually just one broom per tree when the cause is a genetic mutation. Pinpointing the cause of a witches broom can be difcult, especially if the formation is related to an environmental factor. Analyzing the plant tissue for infectious agents such as phytoplasmas requires specialized testing that can be costly. Extensive brooming may cause branches to break more easily and can reduce tree vigor. Pruning out the affected twigs, if feasible, can help improve the trees appearance. Home 2042539 By Mathew Pellegrino mpellegrino@srpressgazette.com Farmers in the region have had luck thrown their way this year as they nish out harvesting their peanut and cotton crops after a dry summer was blamed for a major loss in cotton crops around the nation including Texas, the biggest cotton producing state in the nation. Mike Donahoe, the county extension ofce director for Santa Rosa County said right now farmers are about 95 percent complete with their peanut harvests and are less than halfway complete with their cotton harvests. During the summer, a massive drought had farmers worried across the region whether their crops were going to grow in healthy by the end of the year. Last year, cotton went up in price on the market according to Donahoe. Right now, the price of cotton is sitting at around $1 per pound. But cotton isnt the only crop that could help boost local farmers prots. Recent market activities suggest that the cost of peanut butter is on the rise. This could be benecial to peanut farmers in the area. Ive heard there is different levels of availability in different areas in the county, Donahoe said. That depends entirely on the amount of rainfall in particular areas around the county, Donahoe said. Surprisingly overall this year, we did better than we expected, Donahoe said. Because of last minute rainfall earlier this month, peanut crops have come in steadily healthy, Donahoe said. Cotton, which relies heavily on warmer weather to mature before harvest, has taken a slight hit this year as October brought in cooler weather across the region, which is odd for this time of the year in Santa Rosa County. Peanuts, like cotton, had to be planted late this year, Donahoe said. That late planting has cost farmers in the region time and money. We are not as well off as we were last year, Donahoe said. Future prices on cotton are circling close to a dollar according to Donahoe, who has been watching the market prices. And because of a downpour in wet weather following the hot summer, many crops should come in extremely healthy, Donahoe said. Unlike the Santa Rosa County area, states like Texas have taken a huge loss this year on their cotton crops. The Texas drought continued on through the summer, and its been a big hit on Texas, Donahoe said. Most of the southeast suffered under the same conditions. Overall production in general is down because of the hit Texas took. By Tom McLaughlin Florida Freedom Newspapers Tony Henderson, the No. 2 man in the 1st Ju dicial Circuit Public Defenders Ofce headed by James Owens, is being in vestigated on a complaint of sexual harassment. It is not the rst time. The Florida Depart ment of Law Enforce ment is following up on a complaint lodged Oct. 21 with the Escambia County Sheriffs Ofce. Filed by the boyfriend of a Henderson client, the complaint alleges that Henderson made several phone calls in his pres ence in which requests were made for contact by text and phone messages. The deputy who took the report contacted the al leged victim after speaking to her boyfriend, the report said. The ofcer states the woman told him Hender son had asked her out to dinner and to hang out. She further advised that Tony Henderson asked her to perform sexu al favors such as oral sex, according to the report. In an interview conduct ed by the Pensacola Inde pendent News Monday, the woman said she never told the deputy that Henderson had asked her out or for sexual favors. The Escambia County Sheriffs Ofce has said little about the case and has turned it over to the FDLE. The state agency conrmed it was investi gating but offered no fur ther comment. Henderson and his boss, Owens, were implicated to gether in 1998 for the sexu al assault of a woman. The Florida Depart ment of Law Enforcement conducted an investigation of allegations originally brought to the Santa Rosa County Sheriffs Ofce fol lowing an incident the vic tim said occurred on Jan. 31, 1998. On 2, 1998, another woman made allegations of being sexually battered by both Owens and Hen derson. Henderson did not return a call Monday to his cellphone. Mike Burns of the Public Defenders Of ce did respond to the call but had no comment when asked about the incident or whether Henderson had been placed on administra tive leave. Just before Owens was elected to head the Public Defenders Ofce, he and Henderson addressed the sexual harassment charg es made in 1998. Both men said they were victims of an extor tion attempt. Ofcial under investigation after harassment complaint Cotton boom? Whats brewing in the garden?

Local Santa Rosas Press Gazette| A7 Saturday, November 19, 2011 Records of commis sioners travel personal or business to Washing ton, D.C., since 2002. They were to include the names and positions of all accom panying travelers, dates traveled and the nature of all business. Any commissioners travel personal or busi ness provided by Bill Pullum or Bart Pullum via aircraft private or com mercial or vehicle since January 2001. Records of all county involvement with appraiser Mike Rogers, including any county recommendations to retain Mike Rogers for a third appraisal of Pullums 90 acres in 2008-09. Some of the requested documents date back to 1999. On Aug. 23, when the subpoenas were delivered, investigators also took the computer from District 4 Santa Rosa County Com missioner Jim Melvins Of ce. This was the same com puter used by his predeces sor, Gordon Goodin. Also mentioned in an other subpoena was that former State Rep. Ray San som had found his name on a subpoena issued by a fed eral agency. This time, the U.S. At torneys Ofce is seeking records of any business that Sansom or his compa ny, Ray Sansom Inc., might have conducted with the Santa Rosa County Com mission and/or Team Santa Rosa, the countys econom ic development group. Sansom joins fellow Destin resident and former State Sen. Charlie Clary among several people for whom records of personal and business dealings with the county have been sub poenaed. Im a very small part of any of that, Sansom said concerning the subpoenas. He said Ray Sansom Inc. is a company he formed to allow him to work as a con sultant. Ive never billed Santa Rosa County for a penny, Sansom said. They wont have any information from me as far as Im con cerned. The subpoena that names Sansom also was is sued in August along with a second one that seeks doz ens of business, land and travel records involving the Santa Rosa County Com mission. The subpoena says San som also seeks all requests for proposal, invitations to negotiate, contracts, vouch ers for payment/invoices, receipts and correspon dence. It calls for those materi als in Santa Rosa Countys and Team Santa Rosas dealings with Joe Lee P.E., Carter Goble Lee LLC and Sansom and his company. The same subpoena calls for any documents generated during the plan ning, design, site selection, bid solicitation and/or con struction of any county courthouse facility in Santa Rosa County. The County Commission considered property pro posals from ve bidders for the project in 2007-08 but re jected them. They have not moved any closer toward building a new courthouse. Sansom said hes never had any dealings with the county concerning a court house. Rather, he believes the subpoena is an attempt to probe into his connection with the countys contract to construct a new state prison near Milton. He said his connection to the prison is only slightly more substantial than his connection to the court house. As the state House bud get chief in 2008, he signed the document authorizing $115 million in state funds be spent on construction of a private state prison, San som said. The federal govern ment has a mandate that a state government should stay ahead of the game on prison beds, he said. It was one of hundreds of such documents he signed, Sansom said, and his in volvement with the prison ended after that. The DOC (Department of Corrections) makes the decision where a state pris on goes, he said. Actually, according to state sources, when a pris on is to be run by a private company in this case, GEO the company de cides where it will be built. Sansom said he neither knew that a prison was to be built nor that it was to be built in Santa Rosa County, until a resident complained that he had inuenced where the Blackwater River Correctional Facility would be sited. I did not even know it was being constructed in northwest Florida until a disgruntled employee led a complaint, thinking they would lose their job, he said. I got a copy of the complaint and had to use that to gure out where the company was. However, there is a trav el voucher that indicates Sansom traveled to Boca Raton, where GEOs home ofce is located, in 2008. That trip was totally unrelated, Sansom said Wednesday. I was meet ing with state legislators. I never went to any head quarters. I never talked to anyone at any prison corpo ration. That trip was totally unrelated to any pending legislation. He could not recall which state legislators he had met with in Boca Raton. The second subpoena demanding records from the Santa Rosa County deals primarily with target connections between the County Commission and several developers, includ ing Bill Pullum, his son Bart Pullum and Clary. When the subpoenas were issued, Bart Pullum said it was early in the pro cess, and he and his father would not discuss the is sue. It is unknown if Bill or Bart has been served as of this time or if they were scheduled to appear before the federal grand jury on Tuesday. the contract, see if the business was worthy of the rebate and would re ward the business based on the pay and number of jobs created. But Lane Lynchard, county commission chair man, said that he was hesitant to approve such an incentive if it ran in conjunction with the in centive that gave poten tial businesses a break on their wage requirements to receive tax credits. It would have to be one or the other situa tion, not both, Lynchard said. Lynchard said the in centive guidelines that were handed to him by TEAM were not specic enough. Theres no correla tion to the amount of em ployees they have to have and money (wages), Lynchard said. Commissioners asked TEAMs Ogletree to rewrite the incentive proposal before bring ing it back to them next month. great.

When Pace senior was a ninth grader he watched the Univer sity of West Florida golf coaching staff focus their attention on his older brother Blake. While they were trying to woo Blake, which they eventually did, the younger Spencer told UWF Coach Steve Fell that he would sign. Fell held Olson to that com mitment, as he becomes the fourth member of his family to play for the Argos. It was pretty much a no brainer for me, Olson said. I feel very fortunate to play next season for the team that is ranked No. 1 in the nation (NCAA D-II). This is a pretty positive thing for me as I know and get along with a lot of the players at UWF. The only member of the Olson family who will not have played on the links for UWF will be Olsons mom Robin. She is a pretty good golfer, Olson said of his mother. But the season was a little different for Olson, who due to his family moving attend ed Pace just his senior year. Spencer is a great player and I wish I had him on the team for four years, said Pace golf head coach Keith. Olson admitted it was a little hard at rst being the new guy on the Pace Patriots squad, but it didnt take long for him to feel right at home. It was a little odd at rst, but the guys on the team wel comed me and we had a great season, Olson said. Olsons father Mark as well as his siblings Blake, a golfer now at Georgia Southern, and Danielle, all three have repre sented the Argos. I didnt feel a lot of pres sure to choose UWF, Olson said. I wanted to choose UWF because it is a great program that is very competitive. I am looking forward for the chance to compete to be one of the top ve players at.

We have 12 players on the Lady Panther varsity roster, but only eight dressed out for Tuesdays game for various reasons; including the injury Virginia Ffrench sustained last Saturday in the second game of the Crestview Preseason Classic, said Mil ton head coach Stephanie Washington. The eight that dressed out did a good job of controlling the tempo of the game. I was pleased with our defense in spurts, but not overall. We are capable of playing better half court defense and we really need to be. Jay avenged a pre-sea son loss as a complete Lady Royals squad defeated Gulf Breeze 53-35.

Most of the parades are held during the day, but this year there will be one major change coming for the Milton Christmas Parade on Dec. 3 at 6 p.m. One of the major changes is a new route and a new theme.

The new route will have units gathering at the Milton Community Center, then moving out to James Street and then over to Stewart Street with the end of the parade route at Elva Street. Tucker admitted these were changes that had to be made following an accident last year near the start of the route, but she is still excited about the Christmas of the Future parade. All oat walkers must be a minimum of 21 years of age, Tucker said. And all drivers will have to attend a mandatory drivers meeting on Dec. 1 at the Milton Community Center. Drivers will then be presented a certicate that must be presented and displayed for the oat to be in the parade line. Tucker also stressed that with it being a night time parade that lights are a key component so the oats can be seen. Forms to register for this years parade can be found online at the Santa Rosa County Chamber website, www.srcchamber. com. Tucker is also heading up the Milton Lighted Boat Parade, which will also feature a few different twists on Dec. 10 at 7 p.m. First will be the fact the boats will gather at Russell Harbor Landing and larger boats will be part of an alternative line-up.

75 cents Saturday, November 19, 2011 GazetteSanta Rosas Press Find breaking news at www.srpressgazette.comTweet us @srpressgazette and friend us on facebook.com Agents visit BOCC, skip TEAM ofcesBy Bill Gamblinnews@srpressgazette.com On Tuesday, agents with the Federal Bureau of Investigations returned to Santa Rosa County. Santa Rosa County Attorney Angie Jones conrmed the visit to the Santa Rosa County Board of County Commissioner Ofces as agents spoke with Santa Rosa County Administrator Hunter Walker. Jones said nothing was taken from the county ofces. In August, federal agents served two subpoenas to Jones and TEAM Santa Rosa Executive Director Cindy Anderson for a host of documents to be presented before a federal grand jury in September. Investigators on Tuesday did not stop at the TEAM Santa Rosa ofces. In September, during the federal grand jury appearance in Pensacola, Anderson alone turned over four reams of paper in addition to other electronic documents concerning the federal authorities requests. Jones believed the visit was a continuation of the investigation the grand jury and federal ofcials were focused on during the September session in Pensacola. Jones and Anderson were asked to deliver a huge list of records, both printed and electronic, which included: All discussions, negotiations, sales agreements, appraisals, nancing plans and purchase of properties in the county owned by William Bill Pullum, his son Bart Pullum, Garrett Walton, William McKelvy and former State Sen. Charles Clary. Discussions between any commissioner and the Team Santa Rosa board or staff members regarding any properties owned by Bill Pullum, Walton, McKelvy or Clary from 2001 to the present. Emergency management services consultations and contracts between the county and Fitch and Associates dating from January 2005 to the present. Discussions regarding the countys Lifeguard Ambulance contract from January 1999 to present. Records of any past or present commissioners travel to Honduras or the island of Guanaja with or at the request of Bill Pullum or Bart Pullum, including information on the travelers involvement with the Honduran government and any transacted business on behalf of Bill Pullum, Team Santa Rosa, any United States company or Santa Rosa County.By Mathew Pellegrinompellegrino@srpressgazette. com The countys economic development council came to commissioners asking for more incentives for businesses who are looking to come into the county. Last Thursday, Shannon Ogletree, who represents TEAM Santa Rosa, the countys economic development wing, said their group has been eyeing options for businesses that come into the county. Those options include giving those businesses a rebate on their property tax once theyve established themselves in the county. But that incentive was one too many for commissioners, who thought that TEAM should not cut businesses too much slack. According to Ogletrees proposal, the property tax rebate would be given to businesses based on the number of full-time jobs created that pay 115 percent above the average county wage. The average wage equates to roughly $14.69 an hour. In October, TEAM Santa Rosa Executive Director Cindy Anderson asked commissioners to allow the county to still use incentives to bring businesses in, but also allow businesses in that pay 85 percent or more above the average wage, just while unemployment is high. Ogletree said that this incentive could run in conjunction with the property tax break they were suggesting. In October, it was announced that unemployment had dropped from 10 to 9.6 percent during the month of September when about 600 more people in the county had found jobs. County commissioner Jim Melvin said he wanted to make sure that the contract read that the rebate would be given to jobs created and retained. Recently, Clearwire Broadband Services, located in East Milton, cut 225 of the nearly 600 jobs it brought to the county in 2010. Clearwire is a technical call center which helps clients call to get assistance in networking their homes. Ogletree said that unlike the Clearwire situation, if a company cannot retain its employees, it will not receive the incentive package. If the company loses employees, they do not receive the incentives, Ogletree said. If they pick back up, they can reapply for the incentives. Ogletree said businesses had the option to apply for the rebate once a year. The county would look over Area agencies in need of food, clothing donationsBy Bill Gamblinnews@srpressgazette.comWith the holidays approaching, the need to help others less fortunate than us is magnied. An example of this can be found in Milton at the Family Resource Program. As of Nov. 16, the center has distributed food, clothing or cash to 55 families in need. However, in doing so, it has depleted several of its resources especially its food pantry. We try to give families a three-day supply of food, said Family Resource Program Director Jewell Miller. Just on Tuesday alone, we helped 16 families with food, and there were four or more people per family. Right now we are in a tight spot because the support we get from area churches is down and we havent anything to help those with needs even this Thanksgiving. Miller said what was on the shelves was all they had available on Nov. 16, with two more assistance days before Thanksgiving. We help those in need on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., and now it is hard to know how much longer we will be able to help. The Family Resource Program has been on Elva Street since it was displaced by the Milton re in 2009. Miller pointed out they not only assist with food and nancial assistance when necessary, but they help with clothes. We have quite a bit of clothing, but the main thing we could use are mens and boys jeans, Miller said. In November 2010, the Family Resource Program assisted 78 families for the month and 1,065 for the year. Their only sources of funding are donations from individuals and churches as well as some funding they received from United Way of Santa Rosa County. Miller said volunteers also are needed when it comes to sorting clothes and helping people when they come in need of assistance. In 2010, the Family Resource Program got a donation at the last moment, which allowed them to distribute 12 turkeys to families, but Miller doesnt know at this point if they will even be able to do that again this year despite the need being just as FBI returns to county Speak OutLet Santa Rosans know what you thinkInside | Page A2 srpressgazette.com623-5887 BASKETb B ALL: MILTON AND JA A Y TIP OFF SEASON WITH WINS SPORTS, A8TEAM wants business incentivesTeen rider in dirt bike accident dies See GIVING A7 See TEAM A7 See TEAM A7 Obituaries. .....................................AA2Speak Out. .....................................AA2Sudoku..........................................AA2Opinion. ........................................AA4Sports............................................AA8Classieds. .....................................B4 TABLE OF CONTENTS Volume 103 Issue 93 Printed on recycled paper Jim FletcherPublisher 623-2120 news@srpressgazette.com Helping during the holiday s By Mathew Pellegrinompellegrino@srpressgazette.com The minor who hit a vehicle on a dirt bike on Monday succumbed to his injuries at Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola on Wednesday, according to Milton Police.

Following the incident, Mercer was transported in critical condition via LifeFlight to Sacred Heart Hospitals Trauma Unit in Pensacola.

People climb into these recycling bins and throw trash everywhere and I end up picking up a trash bag full of garbage from my yard every day. Move these bins to the dump where garbage goes since there is not much recycling going on. All they do is litter. Also, I am about a clean cut representative for the county instead of a hippie. He ought to get a haircut.Wednesday, 8:08 p.m.Hi Gene, this is Wallace. I read your Speak Out and I also have headaches since Gulf Power put in the smart meter on my home. These meters are very smart and they can record all conversations through the wires of my home. I am afraid to yell at my wife anymore. My headaches are caused by stress I am under. Also they increased our power rates by 10 percent to pay for this technology. Thank you.Wednesday, 7:25 p.m.Yes, this is Kurt. I would like to comment on Wednesdays letter to the editor. A big thumbs up to Mrs. (Deb) Pruitt, owner of Polka-a-dots General Store. I think this is the best letter about the city to the editor I have read this year. Everyone needs to get behind her and get the city of Milton on the right track. We need to get the city looking really good and bring business back downtown.Wednesday, 5:54 p.m.This is Dave. The Avalon construction problem at the entrance island to Timber Ridge subdivision is only one of the problems. The other problem, is that there is no crossover at the intersection. The northbound lanes require a U-turn in order to enter or exit the subdivision. With the heavy traffic on Pin Oak Avenue, we were actually hoping for a traffic light at that intersection. A lot of Chantilly subdivision residents also use Pin Oak as a shortcut to get to Avalon Boulevard. This setup also makes it very confusing when giving visitors or service people directions to the subdivision. It needs to be changed.Wednesday, 3:23 p.m.My name is Ava. I would like to comment on the Christmas lights in Downtown Milton. I have lived here for 20 years and the lights are ugly, the same and old. Many are burned out over and over. They have turned them on way to early. The day after Thanksgiving would have been early enough. And the green tree is ugly, there is just no pizzazz. Thank you.Wednesday, 2:14 p.m.Hi, this is Jan. Gulf Power recently changed out my meter to a smart meter. I was told a meter reader was no longer needed to read my meter at my house and that my usage data transmitted from the smart meter to Gulf Power. My monthly service charge went from $10 a month to $10.89 and I was told the service fee was to pay for the meter readers and render me a bill. I receive my bill online. So this and the rate increase is just another bill we can no longer afford.Wednesday, 2:11 p.m.This is Jan. I wanted to give a heads up to all Mediacom customers who got the digital cable boxes so they can view channels after the Nov. 8 switch over. These customers need to pay attention to their monthly bills. I got three adapters and was assured they were free, however, on my last two bills there was a charge for the digital adapters. People should pay attention to their bills so they are sure they are not being billed for these free adapters by Mediacom. Thank you.Tuesday, 9:34 a.m.Yes, I would like to thank the Milton High School NJROTC for the free fish for veterans on Veterans Day this past Friday. There was a little girl in uniform, Brittney Loveland, who was extremely polite and helpful. I just thank her and the commander of the NJROTC at Milton. That little girl went above and beyond for me and my family. Thank you so much, this is Cindy.MM onday, 12:54 p.m.I am upset with our city leaders about shutting down Scratch Ankle. I feel the organizers have been doing a fine job and had to deal with issues beyond their control. This year, they had the Arts Festival the weekend before and would want to bring their families out a second weekend to the same place. I am a vendor and I couldnt do both. How can city leaders make such a decision without all the facts? Do they not care about Miltons heritage?MM onday, 10:18 a.m.This is Calvin. I am wondering why the county wants another sales tax. Dont they get enough with the franchise fee on our light bills, a communication tax, county cellphone tax, alcohol tax, and they still get money from the Jay oil fields and the gas tax for roads. They need to show us how much they get from each of these and where the money is spent. They get enough taxes already so they could pay to build a courthouse.

LocalSanta Rosas Press Gazette| A3Saturday, November 19, 2011 By TOM McLAUGHLIN Florida Freedom Newspapers A Leon County grand jury is looking at events surrounding a Miltonbased billboard companys removal of an estimated 2,000 trees along Interstate 10 in Northwest Florida. Willie Meggs, the State Attorney for Floridas Second Judicial Circuit, conrmed the grand jury is taking a look at some aspect of the trees being removed by Bill Salter Ad vertising company. Several publications were reporting that State Sen. Greg Evers testied Tuesday after receiving a subpoena issued by the State Attorneys Ofce. It is assumed Evers is acting only as a witness in the in vestigation. Meggs said the grand jury presently convened will conclude its work in the rst week of December. Evers himself could not conrm the subpoena, but said that he had been inter viewed by the Florida De partment of Law Enforcement about three months ago in connection with the felled trees. Meggs acknowledged Wednesday his ofce had obtained a copy of the FDLE investigation to which Evers referred. Evers became em broiled in the tree removal issue when an environmen tal group called Citizens for a Scenic Florida accused him of using his inuence as then House Transporta tion Committee chairman to help Salters agency get around state regulations. Evers maintained Wednesday, as he did in June when the Citizens for a Scenic Florida allegations arose, that he was simply helping Salter cut through Florida Department of Transportation red tape. I asked DOT to return a phone call to a constituent to discuss some issues, he said. DOT hadnt returned phone calls in about nine months. Evers said he spoke to then-Florida Department of Transportation Secretary Stephanie Kopelousos at a function both attended, and later also emailed her about contacting Salter. He said the request that Salter be contacted, and a follow up to see that contact had been made, were his only actions as a legislator on Bill Salter Advertisings behalf. In June Bill Jonson, president of Citizens for a Scenic Florida, accused Evers of convincing Ko pelousos to waive tree-cutting permit requirements for Salter. Evers was the one who talked to the DOT secretary and said, in ef fect, Weve got a business here that doesnt want to pay these costs. I think you should waive them, said Jonson, a city councilman in Clearwater. Jonson said Wednesday he was unaware of either an FDLE investigation or a grand jury being convened in regard to the allegations hed raised. Evers said in June he had not inquired, but as sumed Bill Salter Advertis ing had received the per mits it needed. I think, because DOT had not responded they went ahead and issued the permits, he said. In June Jonson claimed billboards put up by Salters agency were constructed without providing for mitigation for the trees taken down and without removing out-of-date billboards that are supposed to be torn down when new out door advertising goes up. Email exchanges obtained from DOT as public records by the environ mental group and its attor ney seem to indicate state ofcials were clear on what type of vegetation management plans would have to be submitted for Salters company to obtain permits to place billboards. It also found no evidence the required plans were ever submitted. The email exchange be tween DOT ofcials, Evers, Kopelousos and Salter Advertising representatives were obtained by Florida Freedom Newspapers. The environmental group alleged, citing DOT records, that on Jan. 22, 2009, 44 vegetation man agement permit applications were turned in by the Bill Salter Advertisings general manager. All 44 of the permit ap plications were taken to the DOT ofce in Milton and their receipt was acknowl edged on Jan. 29, 2009 by DOT ofcial James Lun sford, group leaders said. DOT records further indicated at least 1,200 trees were cut down with in a subset of these 44 sites, the environmental group said. One site was apparently at the I-10 off ramp at State Road 85 in Crestview. DOT ofcials in Milton and Chipley forwarded a Daily News reporter seek ing conrmation of the Citi zens for a Scenic Florida al legations to Tallahassee. DOT Tallahassee spokesman Dick Kane was not available for comment late Wednesday afternoon. Salter did not return phone calls seeking comment.By Mathew Pellegrinompellegrino@srpressgazette. com A school bus crash that left one dead in Navarre is still under investigation according to representatives from Durham School Bus services that provide school bus transportation for the Santa Rosa County School District. The crash occurred last Thursday at the intersections of U.S. Highway 98 and Whispering Pines Boulevard in Navarre. The bus driver, Jac queline Lee Rock, 58, of Navarre, suffered minor injuries after she ran a red light at the intersection and slid into the side of a Chevrolet Tracker driven by 64-year-old George E Potter III, from Navarre at around 2p.m. Potter was pronounced dead at the scene. At Tuesdays school board meeting, two region al representatives from Durham came before board members to give an update on the crash investigation and what they had found while doing their own in vestigation aside from the Florida Highway Patrol. This has been a bad week for Santa Rosa County, said superintendent Tim Wyrosdick. Roger Bell, Durhams Operation Supervisor for Milton area buses said that the bus service provider has already undergone its own internal investigation and is still waiting on clo sure to the Florida Highway Patrol investigation. We are taking every effort to investigate this fully, Bell said. Bell said that once ac cidents like this occur, Dur ham undergoes an extensive investigation including an internal audit of their own employees. Bell said Durham looked at Rocks driving le and made sure all of her infor mation and licenses were up to date. We made sure their CDL was current, their re cord was clean and if they had proper training, Bell said. The audit showed management is doing a good job with policies and procedures. Wyrosdick applauded Durhams effort to investi gate the matter fully. Bell and representatives from Durham did not return phone calls concerning the Florida Highway Patrol re port as of press time. This has been taken very seriously from our per spective, Wyrosdick said. We want to make sure this type of action is taken very seriously. Along with auditing the drivers les, Durham also audited other random employees databases to make sure the audit was fair. Durham operates more than 12,000 school buses and serves over 300 school districts in 29 states across the country.Accident that left one dead is under investigationMilton businessman faces probe

OpinionA4 | Santa Rosas Press Gazette Saturday, November 19, 2011According to CBS News, the number of people in the U.S. living in poverty in 2010 rose for the fourth year in a row, representing the largest number of Americans in poverty in the 52 years since such estimates have been published by the U.S. Census Bureau. MSNBC said, The U.S. poverty rate remains among the highest in the developed world. Lets look at a few poverty facts. Heritage Foundation researchers Dr. Robert Rector and Rachel Shefeld laid out some facts about the poor in their report Understanding Poverty in the United States: Surprising Facts About Americas Poor (9/13/2011). Eighty percent of poor households have air conditioning. Nearly three-fourths have a car or truck, and 31 percent have two or more. Twothirds have cable or satellite TV. Half have one or more computers. Fortytwo percent own their homes. The average poor American has more living space than the typical nonpoor person in Sweden, France or the U.K. Ninetysix percent of poor parents stated that their children were never hungry during the year because they couldnt afford food. The Material WellBeing of the Poor and the Middle Class Since 1980 (10/25/2011) is a research paper by professor Bruce D. Meyer of the University of Chicago and The National Bureau of Economic Research and professor James X. Sullivan of the University of Notre Dame. In it they report: Our results show evidence of considerable improvement in material well-being for both the middle class and the poor over the past three decades. Median income and consumption both rose by more than 50 percent in real terms between 1980 and 2009. In addition, the middle 20 percent of the income distribution experienced noticeable improvements in housing characteristics: living units became bigger and much more likely to have air conditioning and other features. The quality of the cars these families own also improved considerably. Similarly, we nd strong evidence of improvement in the material well-being of poor families. The grim ofcial measures of poverty or income stagnation reported are the result of a number of biases that understate well-being, such as relying exclusively on narrow income measures that do not reect all the resources available to the household for consumption. Income measures fail to capture important components of economic well-being, such as wealth and the ownership of durables, e.g., houses and cars. For example, ofcial measures would consider a retired couple who owned their car and mortgage-free $700,000 home and lived on $20,000 savings to be poor. Clearly, their income does not reect their material well-being. Income Mobility in the U.S. from 1996 to 2005 (11/13/2007) is a report by the U.S. Department of the Treasury that shows considerable income mobility of individuals in the U.S. economy. Roughly half of taxpayers who began in the bottom income quintile in 1996 moved up to a higher income group by 2005. Among those with the very highest incomes in 1996 the top 1/100 of 1 percent only 25 percent remained in this group in 2005. Moreover, the median real income of these top taxpayers declined over the study period. These ndings conrm previous studies dating back to the 1960s reaching the same conclusion, namely: At different periods of time, different people occupy different income groups, but the overall trend is upward. What about the concentration of wealth? In 1918, John D. Rockefellers fortune accounted for more than half of 1 percent of total private wealth. To compile the same half of 1 percent of the total private wealth in the United States today, youd have to combine the fortunes of Microsofts Bill Gates ($59 billion) and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg ($19 billion), but with 10 other multibillionaires in between. Our congressionally caused recession has indeed caused needless hardship for many Americans, but the big poverty and income stagnation hype is part and parcel of an agenda to make us more accepting of politicians getting their hands deeper into our pocketbooks in the name of helping the poor. Walter E. Williams is a professor of economics at George Mason University. www.creators.com.Obama taking control of radio and TV Wednesday, Comrade Obama took control of all radio and TV stations across the United States, much in the same way Hugo Chavez did six months into his presidency in Venezuela. I coordinated spotters and had them stand a vigilant watch outside the FCC ofces in Washington, D.C. They were prepared to call in 200 protesters and do what was necessary to ensure the FCC returned control of our airwaves back to the people. Some of these people were Cuban exiles who are well aware of the path this nation is going down under this president. Operation FCC was called off as soon as I got word, via text on my cellphone, that our broadcasting capabilities were back in the hands of the people. Today, the FCC chairman, Comrade Julius Genachowski, stated he wished he was able to get control of our cellphones and the internet too. Hmm says I. I got a hold of the FCC Chairmans direct line and called him up. He had just left for the day, so I left the following messages. 1. I want the FCC to place my cellphone on an FCC DO NOT CALL list. In other words, I do not want the federal government calling, texting me or telling me anything. I stated I do not trust this current government and I stated that Obamas days are numbered. I stated we have private news outlets all over this country and Obama and the federal government have no need to reach me. If an asteroid is about to hit the earth, Hannity will tell me via breaking news on Fox! 2. I told the director of the FCC to start looking for a new job, because his butt is red Nov. 6, 2012, along with the rest of these Communist miscreants infesting our government. 3. I stated that if Obama tries to take control of all media and broadcasting airwaves right before the general election to remain in power under the guise of Marshal Law, I have a contingency in place to counter him. Operation FCC will be initiated. There you go. Remember. Rules for Radicals can be applied back at the domestic enemy forces in our country. Geoff Ross, Navarre Spooky night enjoyableI just wanted to take a minute to tell the Milton Historical Society how much I enjoyed attending my rst Ghost Walk. The amount of time and work that went into producing such an enjoyable production was much appreciated. I heard so many interesting facts about the history of Milton and the surrounding areas. The character actors made the history lesson fun to learn! Thank you for the wonderful experience. Next year, put the Ghost Walk on your calendar.

SHARE Yo O UR OPINIONs SIs midnight on Thanksgiving too early to shop? Pro ConMATBILL MMINoORItTY VIEWPoOINtTWalter WilliamsMMat, you greedy so-and-soI can imagine how you and corporate people think: One more dollars is never too much to ask. Already we have heard the cries from those upset over Christmas lights placed in downtown Milton and turned on before Veterans Day. Now you want to move the rst day of the Christmas shopping season to Thanksgiving night. Why? Isnt it already absurd enough that companies are posting their Black Friday (Thursday) specials on the Internet in advance of the sale? And for what? Is it so a few bean counters can squeeze one more day (and maybe a few million more dollars) out of the Christmas shopping season? Ah, its all about money. Give me a break! Call me crazy or stupid, but Thanksgiving is one of the few days left were people can spend time with their families and enjoy each other. Its one of the few holidays that hasnt been overly marketed. We dont sell gaudy Thanksgiving lights to string along your eves. We dont sell Thanksgiving costumes for everyone to wear. We just cook a meal and enjoy together-time with our families and friends. And now, corporate greed wants to interfere with that. Why sit and enjoy each other? Heck, you could be out spending money! If we do not watch what is taking place, you will soon get your gifts and exchange them at 10 or 11 a.m. Christmas Day. I keep hearing groups express the need to maintain the family unit and spend time together or visit with extended family, yet we blindly follow the lead of those who suggest stores stay open and not allow workers time with their families. Before you tell me I am against free enterprise, let me say: I am not. But the enterprising of Christmas has gotten more than a little bit out of hand. Many stores are bringing back layaway. Why? They know times are tough and want to give you weeks to pay for that December splurge. They want the money you wouldnt normally spend. In this tough economy, everyone is having to do more, work longer and accomplish more with less. Now, these stores want to stay open on Thanksgiving. Who will work the stores? Well, the employees, of course. Did the stores even give a thought about their associates who will have to sacrice time with family just so the company can bank a few extra bucks? Dont expect those dollars to be spent on giving people jobs. Companies are keeping all the gravy for themselves these days. While to some, this sounds great, and there will be plenty of people who cant wait to go shopping Thursday night, but I wonder: Is it too much to ask for you to pause and wait until the following morning? There was no problem with waiting until 8, 9 or 10 a.m. to go shopping when I was a kid. Then as I got older, it was moved to 3, 4, or 5 a.m. in some cases. Now we might as well choreograph Thursday night with World Wrestling Entertainment, because it is going to be a foolish battle royal. Two women full of turkey and cranberries body slamming and hitting each other with back elbows to lay claim to Sarana Fijit. Lets get real and demand the stores get equally realistic in how we celebrate the season.NNight OwlsBill, we all know how you get after eating. The rst thing you do is lean back in your chair and fall asleep. We all also know just how cheap you are. Youre so tight, you creek when you walk. No wonder you dont like the idea of sales on Thanksgiving evening. Youd sleep through them all. Everyone loves Thanksgiving, but the one thing I dread every year (besides doing the dishes afterwards), is the alarm going off at 4 a.m. the next morning. The alarm attempts to wake me from the beer, wine and turkey that have all but put me into a deep coma. I chug three cups of coffee and make my way out the front door to the nearest store to make yet a deeper hole in my wallet. The sleep depravation only encourages me to buy things I dont need because Im not fully awake and dont always realize just how much money Im blowing. But I guess thats the point of Black Friday: To get people to spend money. Still, instead of spending money, I like the idea of spending Friday morning in bed while I get over my turkey and beer hangover. While not all of us partake in drinking during Thanksgiving, its easy to say that after a Thanksgiving meal, everyone retreats to the nearest soft spot for a siesta. By the time we get up from our nap, we are full of energy. Drowsy, yes, but still full of energy. That would be the perfect time to hit the stores. If youre late getting home, dont worry. There will be lots of leftovers waiting to be consumed. Plus, whether you are from the south or the north, most people know that it gets painstakingly cold around 3 or 4 a.m. But right around midnight, its never that cold. Now, while I dont think you mind the cold with that polar bear belly, I still think its easier to wake up at midnight than camp out overnight only to wake up to nd your spot in line has been overtaken by a television hoarder. This option is going to make shopping less stressful and keep people from losing sleep over the change, unless of course, its because they have visions of at screen televisions dancing in their heads the night before. You cant really call the holiday Black Friday anymore, because Walmart starts its holiday shopping deals at 10 p.m. Thursday. Target and other major retailers will start their busiest shopping day of the year at midnight on Thursday. But Bill, think about it. We also wont have as much Black Friday trafc to deal with either. Many devoted shoppers will hit the stores Thursday night and be done with their shopping before you come out of your foodinduced coma. The slackers will get up on Friday, pick through the remains on the shelves and go home. More sleep, less trafc? Whats wrong with that Bill? I guess you have fun sitting behind a row of cars on Highway 90 on a daily basis.

LocalA6 | Santa Rosas Press Gazette Saturday, November 19, 2011By Theresa Friday Extension Faculty-Residential Horticulture UF/IFAS Santa Rosa County Lurking just around the corner is Halloween. While thoughts of candy and scary costumes may be on your mind, lets take a look at some be-witching horticulture curiosities. Witch hazel Within the vast plant world, the Hamamelidaceae is known as the witch-hazel family. The horticultural name means together with fruit because its fruit, owers, and next years leaf buds all appear on the branch simultaneously, a rarity among woody plants. Witch hazels name upholds mysterious connotations. In colonial America, the shrubs exible forked branches were a favorite witching stick of dowsers used for searching out hidden waters or precious metals. This has nothing to do with witches, but rather originates from the old English word for pliable branches wych. In England dowsers call an elm (Ulmus glabra) the witch hazel tree. When early British settlers arrived in the Americas, they fancied our witch hazel as the logical replacement for dowsing chores, given its pliable, crooked branches. There are several landscape ornamentals in this family including the Chinese witch hazel (Hamamelis mollis), witch hazel (Hamamelis virginiana) and the very popular Chinese fringe bush (Loropetalum chinensis). Witches Broom At this time of year hearing someone mention a witchs broom may not seem that out of the ordinary, but have you ever heard it mentioned any other time of the year? Occasionally, plants will form unusual and alarming growths. When a plant exhibits a dense mass of shoots growing from a single point that resembles a broom or a birds nest we call it witches broom. In medieval times, mysterious and unexplainable occurrences were often blamed on witchcraft. Brooms during this time were made of bundles of twigs. The term witches broom comes from the German word hexenbesen, which means to bewitch (hex) a bundle of twigs (besom). A number of stresses, both biological and environmental, can lead to the formation of brooms. They can be caused by a number of organisms including fungi, mites, insects, viruses, bacteria and mistletoes. Additionally, some brooms appear to be caused by genetic mutations in the buds of the branches. Unlike brooms caused by living organisms, there is usually just one broom per tree when the cause is a genetic mutation. Pinpointing the cause of a witches broom can be difcult, especially if the formation is related to an environmental factor. Analyzing the plant tissue for infectious agents such as phytoplasmas requires specialized testing that can be costly. Extensive brooming may cause branches to break more easily and can reduce tree vigor. Pruning out the affected twigs, if feasible, can help improve the trees appearance. Home 2042539 By Mathew Pellegrino mpellegrino@srpressgazette.com Farmers in the region have had luck thrown their way this year as they nish out harvesting their peanut and cotton crops after a dry summer was blamed for a major loss in cotton crops around the nation including Texas, the biggest cotton producing state in the nation. Mike Donahoe, the county extension ofce director for Santa Rosa County said right now farmers are about 95 percent complete with their peanut harvests and are less than halfway complete with their cotton harvests. During the summer, a massive drought had farmers worried across the region whether their crops were going to grow in healthy by the end of the year. Last year, cotton went up in price on the market according to Donahoe. Right now, the price of cotton is sitting at around $1 per pound. But cotton isnt the only crop that could help boost local farmers prots. Recent market activities suggest that the cost of peanut butter is on the rise. This could be benecial to peanut farmers in the area. Ive heard there is different levels of availability in different areas in the county, Donahoe said. That depends entirely on the amount of rainfall in particular areas around the county, Donahoe said. Surprisingly overall this year, we did better than we expected, Donahoe said. Because of last minute rainfall earlier this month, peanut crops have come in steadily healthy, Donahoe said. Cotton, which relies heavily on warmer weather to mature before harvest, has taken a slight hit this year as October brought in cooler weather across the region, which is odd for this time of the year in Santa Rosa County. Peanuts, like cotton, had to be planted late this year, Donahoe said. That late planting has cost farmers in the region time and money. We are not as well off as we were last year, Donahoe said. Future prices on cotton are circling close to a dollar according to Donahoe, who has been watching the market prices. And because of a downpour in wet weather following the hot summer, many crops should come in extremely healthy, Donahoe said. Unlike the Santa Rosa County area, states like Texas have taken a huge loss this year on their cotton crops. The Texas drought continued on through the summer, and its been a big hit on Texas, Donahoe said. Most of the southeast suffered under the same conditions. Overall production in general is down because of the hit Texas took.By Tom McLaughlin Florida Freedom Newspapers Tony Henderson, the No. 2 man in the 1st Judicial Circuit Public Defenders Ofce headed by James Owens, is being investigated on a complaint of sexual harassment. It is not the rst time. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is following up on a complaint lodged Oct. 21 with the Escambia County Sheriffs Ofce. Filed by the boyfriend of a Henderson client, the complaint alleges that Henderson made several phone calls in his presence in which requests were made for contact by text and phone messages. The deputy who took the report contacted the alleged victim after speaking to her boyfriend, the report said. The ofcer states the woman told him Henderson had asked her out to dinner and to hang out. She further advised that Tony Henderson asked her to perform sexual favors such as oral sex, according to the report. In an interview conducted by the Pensacola Independent News Monday, the woman said she never told the deputy that Henderson had asked her out or for sexual favors. The Escambia County Sheriffs Ofce has said little about the case and has turned it over to the FDLE. The state agency conrmed it was investigating but offered no further comment. Henderson and his boss, Owens, were implicated together in 1998 for the sexual assault of a woman. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement conducted an investigation of allegations originally brought to the Santa Rosa County Sheriffs Ofce following an incident the victim said occurred on Jan. 31, 1998. On 2, 1998, another woman made allegations of being sexually battered by both Owens and Henderson. Henderson did not return a call Monday to his cellphone. Mike Burns of the Public Defenders Ofce did respond to the call but had no comment when asked about the incident or whether Henderson had been placed on administrative leave. Just before Owens was elected to head the Public Defenders Ofce, he and Henderson addressed the sexual harassment charges made in 1998. Both men said they were victims of an extortion attempt.Ofcial under investigation after harassment complaint Cotton boom? Whats brewing in the garden?

LocalSanta Rosas Press Gazette| A7Saturday, November 19, 2011 Records of commissioners travel personal or business to Washington, D.C., since 2002. They were to include the names and positions of all accompanying travelers, dates traveled and the nature of all business. Any commissioners travel personal or business provided by Bill Pullum or Bart Pullum via aircraft private or commercial or vehicle since January 2001. Records of all county involvement with appraiser Mike Rogers, including any county recommendations to retain Mike Rogers for a third appraisal of Pullums 90 acres in 2008-09. Some of the requested documents date back to 1999. On Aug. 23, when the subpoenas were delivered, investigators also took the computer from District 4 Santa Rosa County Commissioner Jim Melvins Ofce. This was the same computer used by his predecessor, Gordon Goodin. Also mentioned in another subpoena was that former State Rep. Ray Sansom had found his name on a subpoena issued by a federal agency. This time, the U.S. Attorneys Ofce is seeking records of any business that Sansom or his company, Ray Sansom Inc., might have conducted with the Santa Rosa County Commission and/or Team Santa Rosa, the countys economic development group. Sansom joins fellow Destin resident and former State Sen. Charlie Clary among several people for whom records of personal and business dealings with the county have been subpoenaed. Im a very small part of any of that, Sansom said concerning the subpoenas. He said Ray Sansom Inc. is a company he formed to allow him to work as a consultant. Ive never billed Santa Rosa County for a penny, Sansom said. They wont have any information from me as far as Im concerned. The subpoena that names Sansom also was issued in August along with a second one that seeks dozens of business, land and travel records involving the Santa Rosa County Commission. The subpoena says Sansom also seeks all requests for proposal, invitations to negotiate, contracts, vouchers for payment/invoices, receipts and correspondence. It calls for those materials in Santa Rosa Countys and Team Santa Rosas dealings with Joe Lee P.E., Carter Goble Lee LLC and Sansom and his company. The same subpoena calls for any documents generated during the planning, design, site selection, bid solicitation and/or construction of any county courthouse facility in Santa Rosa County. The County Commission considered property proposals from ve bidders for the project in 2007-08 but rejected them. They have not moved any closer toward building a new courthouse. Sansom said hes never had any dealings with the county concerning a courthouse. Rather, he believes the subpoena is an attempt to probe into his connection with the countys contract to construct a new state prison near Milton. He said his connection to the prison is only slightly more substantial than his connection to the courthouse. As the state House budget chief in 2008, he signed the document authorizing $115 million in state funds be spent on construction of a private state prison, Sansom said. The federal government has a mandate that a state government should stay ahead of the game on prison beds, he said. It was one of hundreds of such documents he signed, Sansom said, and his involvement with the prison ended after that. The DOC (Department of Corrections) makes the decision where a state prison goes, he said. Actually, according to state sources, when a prison is to be run by a private company in this case, GEO the company decides where it will be built. Sansom said he neither knew that a prison was to be built nor that it was to be built in Santa Rosa County, until a resident complained that he had inuenced where the Blackwater River Correctional Facility would be sited. I did not even know it was being constructed in northwest Florida until a disgruntled employee led a complaint, thinking they would lose their job, he said. I got a copy of the complaint and had to use that to gure out where the company was. However, there is a travel voucher that indicates Sansom traveled to Boca Raton, where GEOs home ofce is located, in 2008. That trip was totally unrelated, Sansom said Wednesday. I was meeting with state legislators. I never went to any headquarters. I never talked to anyone at any prison corporation. That trip was totally unrelated to any pending legislation. He could not recall which state legislators he had met with in Boca Raton. The second subpoena demanding records from the Santa Rosa County deals primarily with target connections between the County Commission and several developers, including Bill Pullum, his son Bart Pullum and Clary. When the subpoenas were issued, Bart Pullum said it was early in the process, and he and his father would not discuss the issue. It is unknown if Bill or Bart has been served as of this time or if they were scheduled to appear before the federal grand jury on Tuesday. the contract, see if the business was worthy of the rebate and would reward the business based on the pay and number of jobs created. But Lane Lynchard, county commission chairman, said that he was hesitant to approve such an incentive if it ran in conjunction with the incentive that gave potential businesses a break on their wage requirements to receive tax credits. It would have to be one or the other situation, not both, Lynchard said. Lynchard said the incentive guidelines that were handed to him by TEAM were not specic enough. Theres no correlation to the amount of employees they have to have and money (wages), Lynchard said. Commissioners asked TEAMs Ogletree to rewrite the incentive proposal before bringing it back to them next month. great. We can tell how much tougher it is getting for people and others because there are just so many needs in our community, and it is getting harder and harder now to meet all of those needs, Miller said.UWSRC coat driveOn Wednesday, United Way of Santa Rosa County and Woodbine Cleaners announced they have partnered with Soft Rock 94.1, WXBM 102.7, the Santa Rosa County School District and Central Ministerial Fellowship to run the Coats for Kids coat drive for children and adults in Santa Rosa County. The community is asked to donate new and gently used coats to help the community keep warm this winter until Jan. 31. After speaking with Dr. Karen Barber of the Santa Rosa County school district and with representatives from local clothing closets, weve decided to revive our Coats for Kids program to fulll the need for coats this season, said Marianne Back, UWSRC community projects coordinator. We will furnish coats for school children identied through the school system, give coats to families and individuals in need and help stock clothing closets across the county through this drive. In the Santa Rosa County School District, more than 1,200 students have been identied as indigent, and more than 70 of them are classied as unaccompanied. UWSRC is seeking volunteers, churches, businesses and civic groups to partner with the drive. Funds donated will be used to purchase coats. To donate coats or get involved, call 623-4507 or visit www.unitedwaysrc. org for more info.Local agencies receive grantsOn Wednesday, members of the Greater Escambia Community Foundation awarded almost $300,000 in grants to various agencies to assist victims of the oil spill. Those grants were awarded to: Baptist Health Care Foundation Lakeview Center: $36,125 Favor House of Northwest Florida: $50,000 First United Methodist Church Gulf Coast Interfaith Alliance: $43,100 Loaves and Fishes: $30,000 Sacred Heart Foundation 0 Lynn F. Johnson Pediatric Dental Clinic: $41,625 South Santa Rosa Interfaith Ministries: $45,500 United Ministries: $50,000 The Greater Escambia Community Foundation awarded these grants, which were made possible through a contribution from the Fund for Gulf Coast Communities, a program of Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisers, to help with the needs of individuals, families and children signicantly affected by the April 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill and its aftermath. Favor House, one of the recipients, helps women and children affected by domestic violence. Last year in Santa Rosa County, there were more than 700 reported cases of domestic violence. South Santa Rosa Interfaith Ministries is based in the south end of the county, but 48 percent of its assistance needs come from the north end of Santa Rosa County.

When Pace senior was a ninth grader he watched the Univer sity of West Florida golf coaching staff focus their attention on his older brother Blake. While they were trying to woo Blake, which they eventually did, the younger Spencer told UWF Coach Steve Fell that he would sign. Fell held Olson to that com mitment, as he becomes the fourth member of his family to play for the Argos. It was pretty much a no brainer for me, Olson said. I feel very fortunate to play next season for the team that is ranked No. 1 in the nation (NCAA D-II). This is a pretty positive thing for me as I know and get along with a lot of the players at UWF. The only member of the Olson family who will not have played on the links for UWF will be Olsons mom Robin. She is a pretty good golfer, Olson said of his mother. But the season was a little different for Olson, who due to his family moving attended Pace just his senior year. Spencer is a great player and I wish I had him on the team for four years, said Pace golf head coach Keith. Olson admitted it was a little hard at rst being the new guy on the Pace Patriots squad, but it didnt take long for him to feel right at home. It was a little odd at rst, but the guys on the team welcomed me and we had a great season, Olson said. Olsons father Mark as well as his siblings Blake, a golfer now at Georgia Southern, and Danielle, all three have repre sented the Argos. I didnt feel a lot of pressure to choose UWF, Olson said. I wanted to choose UWF because it is a great program that is very competitive.

Ashly Johnson had six boards while Kasandra Gilley grabbed ve. Gilley, and both Johnsons nished with four steals each. We have 12 players on the Lady Panther varsity roster, but only eight dressed out for Tuesdays game for various reasons; including the injury Virginia Ffrench sustained last Saturday in the second game of the Crestview Preseason Classic, said Mil ton head coach Stephanie Washington.

Most of the parades are held during the day, but this year there will be one major change coming for the Milton Christmas Parade on Dec. 3 at 6 p.m. One of the major changes is a new route and a new theme. We have changed the parade route and where we will gather, said Santa Rosa County Chamber of Commerce executive director Donna Tucker. The change comes with the fact that there is not enough law enforcement available to cover the route we have used starting at King Middle School. The new route will have units gathering at the Milton Community Center, then moving out to James Street and then over to Stewart Street with the end of the parade route at Elva Street. Tucker admitted these were changes that had to be made following an accident last year near the start of the route, but she is still excited about the Christmas of the Future parade. All oat walkers must be a minimum of 21 years of age, Tucker said. And all drivers will have to attend a mandatory drivers meeting on Dec. 1 at the Milton Community Center. Drivers will then be presented a certicate that must be presented and displayed for the oat to be in the parade line. Tucker also stressed that with it being a night time parade that lights are a key component so the oats can be seen. Forms to register for this years parade can be found online at the Santa Rosa County Chamber website, www.srcchamber. com. Tucker is also heading up the Milton Lighted Boat Parade, which will also feature a few different twists on Dec. 10 at 7 p.m. First will be the fact the boats will gather at Russell Harbor Landing and larger boats will be part of an alternative line-up. Trophies will be presented for rst, second, and third place, along with a rst-ever peoples choice award. You can register for this parade at the Santa Rosa County Chamber website as well.
