75 cents Wednesday, April 18, 2012 Gazette Santa Rosas Press Find breaking news at www.srpressgazette.com Tweet us @srpressgazette and friend us on facebook.com John Graves is the general manager of WTGF 90.3-FM Pace and is the vice-president of the Interfaith Jail Ministry in Santa Rosa County. 1. What brought you to Santa Rosa County? We (my family) wanted to live in a smaller town than Pensacola, and the schools are a lot better here than they are in Escambia County. Another thing that made the decision for me was getting back into radio since I managed a station at Ole Miss for four years while in college. 2. What ctional character are you the most like? I am more like Walter, one of Jeff Dunhams puppets. 3. What was your most embarrassing moment you now laugh about? Leaving the mic on during my radio show after a break. The music was playing, and I realized the public had heard the entire conversation between Martina McBride and I over the top of a song. We were just talking and then the phones lit up. John Graves IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD WITH ON THE WORD STREET I would like to see more bike paths. The other day I was riding my bike, and there is just a lot of trafc on Highway 90. Lou Francis What would you like to see in Pace? I would like a YMCA or a gym with child care. Aggie Pabst A dog park in Pace would be a great idea. Fletcher Watson Hello, Pace and Pea Ridge!

FISHING: FISHIN WITH A MISSION BASS TOURNEY WRAPS UP SPORTS, A16 By MATHEW PELLEGRINO 393-3669 | @SRPG_Mat mpellegrino@srpressgazette.com Fire gutted a vacant Avalon home Monday as investigators continue to locate the cause of the blaze. The Galt City Road blaze also threatened the yards surround ing it before firefighters could get it under control around 11 a.m. I know there used to be peo ple living in that home, but they moved to California, said John Collyer, who watched the fire from his front porch. Collyers neighbor Janie Shallue said the house had been vacant and that she believes the person who owned the home had someone looking over it. My neighbor said she heard explosions or shots right before they saw the flames, Shallue said. They had just put a for sale sign up on the home not Local economy nally picks up By MATHEW PELLEGRINO 393-3669 | @SRPG_Mat mpellegrino@srpressgazette.com Two years ago spending stopped nationally, and the cri sis hit Pace particularly hard. People stopped shopping, stopped going out and cut back dramatically. Now with gas prices hitting record highs, many would ex pect the same thing to happen. But that is not the case in Pace. Just ask Nicki Qualls, the executive director of the Pace Area Chamber of Commerce. Weve had a lot of business es come in and say they have picked up dramatically over the past six months, Qualls said. Not only has business picked up for her members, it is also picking up at the Chamber itself. In 1999, Pace Chamber started with a mere 50 businesses. Now the group includes roughly 323 businesses. Lots of our members have closed their business and ac tually reopened, Qualls said. Weve also had members that have dropped their member ship and just recently renewed it with us. So business is really picking back up. In January, the Chamber put a new president at its helm. Nan cy Connelly, who works at Gulf Coast Community Bank, was the woman who took over the job. According to Qualls, since then, the Chamber has started to aim toward helping out oth ers in the local community. Since shes come in, weve gotten really involved with the BUSINESS IS BACK IN PACE See CHAMBER A6 See NEIGHBOR A6 See WORD A8 Fire blasts through Avalon home Fireghters from several local stations work to put out ames at a home in the Avalon district early Monday.

S unday, 12:27 p.m. This is Barbara. Recently, we had a hate crime murder at the East Milton prison. Should we be having a vigil for the 24-year-old? S unday, 3:01 a.m. This is Faye. Im only a concerned citizen of Santa Rosa County. Do not change Avalon Boulevards name to suit the south end of Santa Rosa County. Tourists are ne. But do not support one end of the county. Anyone looking for Gulf Breeze and Avalon or the beaches have GPS systems and can nd their own way. Stop trying to divide the county. The north end also has a lot to offer. We have rivers, canoeing, state parks, antiques, restaurants, hotels, motels and the Veterans Memorial Park. We need more tourists also. Thank you very much Press Gazette, you are doing a good job. S aturday, 5:10 p.m. I just want you to know how much Im enjoying the Word on the Street article where you ask different questions. You give a very good representation of the county. I wish you would take this article and replace the Pro/Con with Word on the Street because all it does it take up space. Several people that Ive talked to agree with me about that. So I think you should do a survey and see who is reading that in a positive way. Thank you so much. S aturday, 4:36 p.m. In the April 15, PARADE edition: What People Earn: Actors, authors, singers, athletes and Snooki earned millions per year. Teachers, reghters, nurses, police and other folks with real jobs that are vital to our society maybe make $60K, if youre really good at your job. Nice to know our country has its priorities in order. S aturday, 4:19 p.m. Hi, this is Sandy. I just nished reading the article Whats in Store for the FCAT in the Saturday, April 14 Press Gazette. Thats a very good article, and I am in favor of making that test harder. In terms of the way it is graded, the teachers do spend a lot of time working on this test. But, in the younger elementary schools where I volunteer, we work on trying to get them to the next grade level, especially in reading and math. These teachers do work hard and are dedicated in this school district. And if someone is not procient, I think that lies on what they do beyond school hours. And I just want to thank all the teachers, administrators that dedicate their time and careers to helping the children be the best they can be. Thank you. S aturday, 4:16 a.m. My name is Dale. I dont know what world Gary Woods and the rest of these board members of the bridge are in, but let me tell you what happens in the real world. Travelers have GPS systems, and they already know the quick route to the beach. They see the alternate routes to the beach, and they choose not to pay a toll. And if the ones that want to pay a toll are going to pay a toll, they are not going to worry about the name of the road. I travel for a living. I always know what highway number Im on. But when I get down to the street level, Im looking at then GPS and if it says turn right three blocks, I could care less what the name of the street is. And you can change it to mean any kind of expressway you want. Its not going to increase trafc on that bridge. Youre just messing with local business. The government needs to stop messing with the businesses on Avalon. S aturday, 3:09 p.m. Regarding the young black woman who said shed vote for Obama because hes black: I applaud your honesty and courage. There is about 30 million white folks that voted against him for the same reason, but dont have the guts to publicly admit it. P.S., Obama really is a nativeborn American citizen, so get over it. Do yall realize how ignorant and racist it sounds to keep demanding more and more proof, when nothing will ever satisfy the lunatic fringe? Pete. F riday, 10:48 a.m. This is Mary again about the patrolmen taking their cars home. I was really referring to Escambia deputies and City of Pensacola policeman living in Santa Rosa County. How can they have a quicker response to a call when they dont even live in their county? Some of our deputies live in Escambia County. I dont understand how they can take their vehicles home. Thank you. Thursday, 4:50 p.m. Hey, this is Ed. There is a pretty Avalon Boulevard sign on Highway 90. When they get it nished, that is going be nice and lighted. How much is this going to cost us to change up these signs up there? Leave it the way it is. Thank you. Thursday, 2:25 p.m. I got a green pepper plant from Milton Clean Community. So easy, and dreams of big stuffed peppers for later. This is Marie. Thank you. ...a weekly column answering your questions with Biblical answers about life.

This new engine is specically de signed to meet the operational needs of protecting the City of Milton from re and other emergencies, said Fire Chief John E. Reble. It incorporates many of the benecial features of our existing frontline engine, while adding several new capabilities and increased equipment storage. The housing ceremony will include the push in of the new engine. This tradition dates back to the early 1800s, when horsedrawn re engines had to be pushed by hand back into their stalls. Members of the public are welcomed to attend the program and view the new equipment. The re station will be open for tours following the ceremony.

Local A6 | Santa Rosas Press Gazette Wednesday, April 18, 2012 local schools, Qualls said. Weve been doing fundraisers and raffles to raise money for two schol arships that we are going to award to two Pace High School students. Qualls said the Cham ber also is helping with the S.S. Dixon Haystacku lar event in the fall. In the past, weve worked with the schools a little bit, but this year weve done a whole lot more. Businesses also are continuing to come to the area. A new Raceway is opening up on the corner of Woodbine Road and U.S. 90, for example, and Qualls said she has attended nu merous small business ribbon cuttings within the past few months. Weve got so many new things coming into Pace, Qualls said. Since the economy has picked back up, memberships have picked back up, and being a member of the Chamber helps pick up business for businesses. Many businesses, like The Cutting Board in Pace, have seen major changes in the past few months.

Collyer said he saw a man at the home yesterday, but he believed it was someone who was taking care of the home. Fireghters fought the ames for al most an hour on what they thought was a brick structure home. We found out that on the inside it was actually a doublewide structure, and over the years they had skinned it and put a roof over it, said Pace Volunteer Fire District Lt. Nick Anderson. The re was actually between the old tin roof of the trailer and under the pitch roof they built on top of it. Avalon Fire Department Fire chief Sid Wiggins said his crew put two piercing lines into the roof of the structure to keep the re from spreading. It helped slow the ames in the at tic, Wiggins said. Its better to use that method when you dont want to put your men on the roof. Wiggins said when he arrived on the scene, ames were shooting out the back of the home. He said the State Fire Mar shal was called in from Pensacola to as sess the scene. Gulf Power later came in to cut off pow er to surrounding homes. All I know is they moved to Califor nia about six months ago, Collyer said. They had rats in that home. It wasnt the best of living in that home. The cause of the re is still under in vestigation by the State Fire Marshals ofce. The Pace Volunteer Fire District, Bag dad Fire Department, Avalon Fire De partment, Skyline Fire Department, the Santa Rosa County Sheriffs Ofce and LifeGuard Ambulance all responded to the scene on Monday.

We kept the full staff because the staff is what makes The Cut ting Board what it is, Glover said. Glover said she took over where former own ers Steve and Laura House left off. The economy could affect us, but we are just going with the business, as they say, Glover said. Qualls said she envi sions the Pace area will continue to flourish in the future, and the only criticism she hears from locals is that the area needs more restaurants. We have had a few people come in and in quire about starting new restaurants in the area, Qualls said. I would love to see more restaurants in the area. Glover said res taurants like hers are always flourishing as long as you keep the food good and the peo ple happy. We wanted to keep it the way it was for our customers, Glover said. We believe if it isnt broke, we dont need to fix it. Businesses that join the Chamber get more than just a name in the community, Qualls said. Business owners also are able to attend events the Chamber puts on, such as net working events. They get so many free benefits from the Chamber, Qualls said. Our main goal is to promote businesses in our area. MATHE W PELLEGR IN O | Press Gazette Fireghters hose down the back of the home that was destroyed by a re early Monday morning.

Local Santa Rosas Press Gazette| A7 Wednesday, April 18, 2012 Avalon Nursery re-emerges with easier access, offering greater inventory By OBIE CRAIN Press Gazette Advertorial You cant put a great nurs ery down, no matter how hard you try. And Caseys Nursery & Landscaping at 3851 Avalon Blvd. is a good example of such a challenge! Years of disruptive highway construction out front, together with a recent, uncooperative ear ly spring, have certainly made a difference in the volume of their business. But the perseverance of own ers Jon and Deb Casey and con struction progress on its high way frontage are paying off with more new friends and a greaterthan-ever inventory of quality nursery stock. Business has been lean for the last couple of years, Deb said, looking out over 5 acres of some of the most attractive trees, owers and shrubs com mercially available anywhere in Santa Rosa County. Its been so hard for people to get in or out of here or even travel Avalon Bou levard at all that has caused us to lose a lot of business. But business has picked up steadily. Im optimistic about things now since theyve made such headway in the road con struction out front, she said. That has made it easier for cus tomers to get in and out. While the construction was choking off customers, Jon and Deb took advantage of the lull and spent more time and effort developing and adding to their already ample and available sup ply of nursery stock, including trees, shrubbery and all kinds of plants. An early spring has expedited the wake-up call in a lot of veg etation on the lot, and Mother Nature is just swiping her paint brush all over the place. Its time for those who are looking for owering plants to come out and see how they will look in their own yard. Shoppers will be able to nd almost any nursery related item theyre looking for at Caseys Nursery & Landscaping. There are shade trees, fruit trees and ornamental and citrus trees, in addition to owering evergreen, tropical and seasonal shrubs. Fruit trees are particularly popular this season, and theres plenty to choose from. Apple, pear, peach, g, plum and many others are among those avail able. Raspberry, strawberry, grape, muscadine, blueberry and persimmon are special items also that a lot of nurseries dont carry. Nut-bearing trees including eight varieties of pecans, black walnut, English walnut and chestnuts are among other va rieties you might think are un available here. But Caseys has them, including orange lemon, lime, kumquat, tangerine, Sat suma and calamander trees. Flowering ornamentals are also available such as ower ing crab apple, white dogwood, red dogwood, purple leaf plum, weeping pussy willow, Yoshino cherry and Little Glen Magnolia. Bradford pear, Japanese mag nolia, weeping mulberry and eu calyptus are also among those youll nd at Caseys. Maples, Japanese sycamore, sweet gum, tulip, popular, bald cypress and bay magnolia are some of the outstanding shade trees on the lot. Of course, shrubs such as hydrangeas, aza leas, bridal wreath, gardenias, camellias and many others are among the inventory at Caseys also. Vines include Clematis, Pas sion, Mondavilla, Allemande and wisteria. Not only do they carry of the usual shrubs, roses, vines, citrus, palms and lilies, among others, they carry unusual and hard-to-nd plants, especially in spring perennials. In fact, Deb says they carry one of the widest selections of perennials youll nd anywhere in this area. And with the early spring. the Jackson & Perkins and knockout roses are blooming their hearts out. Jon and Deb, who own and personally supervise the activi ties at Caseys Nursery & Land scaping, are wise when it comes to vegetation growing sched ules and have long been mak ing preparations to have things ready for you to minimize the time and effort it will cost you when youre ready to come in and make those nal arrange ments for transplanting. And to assist you in the up keep and maintenance of your nursery stock, youll nd ev erything you need in the way of chemicals, fertilizers, soil amendments, mulches, feeders, herbicides, weed preventers, zinc and magnesium sulfate. And thats not all, even if you think there cant be any more! Caseys Nursery & Landscaping is ready to provide you with ex pert landscaping services, just as readily as the vegetation to make it attractive. Dont be shy! Ask Jon or Deb any of the questions you wish about the merchandise they furnish. They will be happy to work with you on solving any landscaping project or challenge you can come up with. As for customer service and assistance, Caseys offers one above the maximum Five Star service you might be told you are getting from others. Competitive prices are also an attractive item to consider at Caseys. They grow their own stock, which means it can be delivered more inexpen sively. That, then, is passed on to you, the customer, in the form of lower prices. Deb says they are always thinking about the customer, what he or she might want or appreciate, at Caseys Nursery & Landscaping. She said people seem to sometimes like a few new things sprinkled in with the traditional, and we make every effort not to disappoint them! We only sell the healthiest nursery stock available, Deb says. And theres no exception to the rule: We provide only those nursery items that will grow in this area. That, simply put, means that no one at Caseys Nursery & Landscaping will try to pass off items to a customer that will not grow here.

Hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mon day through Friday, and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays.

One of the most thankless jobs is held by those in the law enforcement. Weve all heard the old saying Theres never a cop around when you need one. And all too often, when one IS around, its because weve been caught doing something we should not have. Yes, the job is thankless, but what makes it worse is when politics gets thrown into the mix. Every week, we publish the Sheriffs Report. It lists felony arrests and is a physical example of just how hard the deputies work. This report is there every week of the year. But we cant help noticing how much more the arrests are crowed about when it is an election year. A couple of weeks ago, Santa Rosa County Sheriff Wendell Hall called a press conference to announce the apprehension, or future apprehension, of 30-plus individuals for methamphetamine and other drug-related allegations. He provided the media with a list of 94 or so other individuals arrested for drugs since the start of their methamphetamine investigation back in October. A week or so later, two businesses had search warrants executed for spice and bath salts. It is a great thing to get these things off our streets, and were not suggesting anyone tries harder in election years. We just note we hear about it much more in years in which an election will be held. This is an election year. The numbers show Hall is doing an awesome job controlling drugs. In 2008, 506 misdemeanor and 472 felony drug arrests were logged. In 2009, those numbers were 574 misdemeanor and 457 felony charges. Then, in 2010 there were 606 misdemeanor and 448 felony drug arrests. We show these gures to quiet rumors from some who suggest there are more drug-related arrests in election years. Obviously, these numbers show it isnt true. Not surprisingly, however, we do hear more about the arrests during election cycles. In 2008, another election year, Sheriff Hall called a press conference for those arrested in a drug investigation he called No Limit. Around July 8, 2008, Hall announced the arrest of 45 individuals in Milton and Bagdad following a two-year drug investigation. There were federal warrants, state warrants and local warrants, with some of the suspects being linked to a shooting and home invasion in Santa Rosa County as well. Another press conference in 2008 involved the arrest of an individual for 885 ecstasy pills, steroids, a cache of weapons and other harmful items. We are not opposed to busting drug dealers and those who traf c this junk on the streets of Santa Rosa County. Were all for it. We just notice how much more air time these things receive during election years. In February 2008, Santa Rosa County Sheriff Wendell Hall cracked down on illegal aliens working locally. Since, we havent heard of other illegals being arrested following that rst month or so when there were raids and investigations almost daily. We are sure the illegal problem was not eradicated in a month, but it is portrayed that way. Once we get to August, will we see even more press conferences? Deputies in Santa Rosa County are doing their jobs and, looking at the numbers, they are doing it in a consistent and unbiased manner. But the parade of these offenders during an election year may be too much. What do you think? Bad time at the beach While enjoying Pensacolas beaches Easter Sunday with my parents, we observed a disgraceful display of police out of control. Several, four or ve, adult women were there with babies in strollers and young children resting along a wall by Bamboo Willies on Quietwater Boardwalk. The women were mature adults in church clothing just enjoying the day with children and grandchildren. No one was loud or intoxicated. A short stocky of cer approached these ladies and began screaming loudly for them to move off the wall and keep moving. A well-dressed young male approached these ladies and asked if there was a reason the of cer was screaming at them. To our shock and surprise, another of cer, about 6-foot-3, dragged the good samaritan young man to a table to identify him and told him not to interfere or excite those people. He was admonished not to be on that beach for one year or hed be arrested. Huh?! We approached this man before leaving and told him wed be writing an account of what we witnessed and encouraged him to make a complaint. We found out the young man was a sergeant in the United States Army. We were doubly dumbfounded, imagining how scary for the children to have their mothers and relatives yelled at and disrespected. Then when a man tried to help, he was really treated very poorly and physically manhandled. What was going on did not warrant the of cers dragging him by the arm and threatening him. Please discipline these neanderthals before they hurt themselves or somebody in the public. That scene was a disgrace in a civilized society. If there is a rage or steroid problem with these two stooges do whatever necessary to chill them out or replace them. Tricia Murray Milton, Fla. Government if you think the problems we create are bad, just wait till you see our solutions. GSA worker in video at lavish Las Vegas conference In yet another example of ongoing spending hubris, it was revealed that the GSA, your General Services Administration, spent an extravagant $835,000 for 300 workers to attend its Western regional conference in Las Vegas. We have no word yet on what the GSA spent on eastern, northern and southern regional conferences. Maybe if you waste enough taxpayer money in the regionals, you can play your way into the Final Four and then Obama takes notice. This all happens while Obama acts like he wants to cut spending. When Republicans and Democrats meet about de cit reduction, we all know it is a show. They make bold budget-cutting proclamations but, like a rst round basketball game in the NCAA tournament where a No. 1 seed plays a No. 16, the lower ranked team is hopeful but the outcome is never really in doubt. The revelations about the GSA spending outrage come on the heels of the Department of Justice admitting it spent $16 apiece for muf ns during ten DOJ conferences last year. Unless Muf n was a stripper, they were overcharged. To be fair, DOJ people had been con scating medical marijuana in California and probably just got the munchies. And the National Science Foundation wasted $2.9 billion on an Antarctic laboratory where scientists did worthless research and went skinny-dipping, and we paid for their Jell-O wrestling parties. Democrats were bothered less by the spending than by the way it upset the natural habits of polar bears, whose mating ritual now involves Jell-O shots followed by insincere banter in the hot tub. Under the watchful eye of Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes-Norton (D-DC), the GSA boondoggle was allowed. Sherlock HolmesNorton, who headed Congressional oversight on this agency, did not nd this elementary to solve. It was a rare mistake by my favorite hyphenated Congresswoman, who is accused of shaking down lobbyists for money. No one is laughing at my Eleanor Holmes-Norton tattoo now! It is nice when federal agencies can take a break from regulating and bureaucratizing to lavish upon themselves the spoils of their taxpayer hoodwinking. The agency is called the General Service Administration because the workers do no speci c tasks. What makes this overthe-top expense even more ironic is that the GSAs stated mission on its website, next to the Obama campaign-like emblem, is to develop governmentwide cost-minimization policies and other management tasks. Here are just a few of the cost-minimization techniques the Inspector General says the GSA applied to its Las Vegas convention. They paid $3,200 for a mind-reader, yet said sage did not tell them this was a bad idea. But to be fair, for a psychic to be successful there has to be a mind to read. $6,300 went for commemorative coin sets in velvet boxes for all attendees. They might as well swap our paper money for Monopoly money and save the printing cost. Other expenses included scrapbooks, presumably for their community outreach program to teach scrapbooking techniques to the homeless. Our government has the nancial discipline of a 19 year-old Ole Miss frat boy. And I am not making this up the Obama administration initially tried to blame the GSA excesses on Bush, much like our frat boy blames the towing company for costing him $200 when he messes up. Fresh from welcoming his family back from Las Vegas, Obama was said to be outraged about GSA spending. This comes from the man who ies his wife and dog to exotic vacations on separate jets, just a couple of hours from when he ies in on Air Force One. The admonishment is all a part of the Obama administrations Do as we say, not as we do philosophy. He famously disparaged Las Vegas by saying You dont blow a bunch of cash there. Personally, I prefer my odds in Vegas; at least there I have a chance at winning. It does not take a mind-reader to tell us what we need to do about government spending. A government contractor should invite all federal workers back to Las Vegas, and then Paul Ryan should change all the locks to their buildings while they are gone.

Local A12 | Santa Rosas Press Gazette Wednesday, April 18, 2012 Special to the Press Gazette King David and King Solomon Led merry, merry lives, With many, many lady friends And many, many wives; But when old age crept over them With many, many qualms, King Solomon wrote the Proverbs And King David wrote the Psalms. Ancient Authors James Ball Naylor (1860-1945) At 97, Kenneth Van Mitchem is showing very few signs of slowing down. At 97, he still loves a party. With that in mind, on Saturday, April 21, Ken wishes to invite you and your family to help him celebrate his 97th birthday with a Bar-B-Que Bash at his home, 835 Fleming Bridge Road in the Spring Hill Community. Considered a patriarch of sorts, Ken is one of Santa Rosa Countys oldest residents, having lived in the area for the past 78 years. Born in DeFuniak Springs April 24, 1915, to Jessie and Alice (Neal) Mitchem, he is the eldest of 11 children. He dropped out of school in the seventh grade to work on the family farm and help raise his siblings. He also worked in the turpentine business along with his father. The family moved to Milton in January 1934, and he continued to work the family farm and learned to do carpentry work. Some days, he actually made one or two dollars! In 1939, he met and married Lois Hardy in the Springhill Community while working for 75 cents a day in a peanut eld owned by Mr. Beck. Some of this money was spent on a marriage certicate. To this union a daughter, Betty Jean, was born in 1944, and a son, Barnard, was born in 1958. After Loiss death in 1970, Ken married Dorothy Richburg in 1972. He then became a father to her son, Raymond. Dorothy died in May 2005, and his son, Barnard, died in May of that same year. Ken has ve grandchildren and six great-grandchildren, who all call him their Great Old Grandpa. In his early years, Ken played baseball and basketball. He pitched for a local baseball team in Munson for several years. He still loves all sports, and is a big fan of both the Atlanta Braves and the Dallas Cowboys. He followed Munsons basketball team as long as it lasted, and then followed Central High Schools team until he was 95, attending all their home games and as many of the out-of-town games as he could with his cousin, Gil Kennington. He watched Bubba Watson win The Masters Golf Tournament on Easter Sunday. Ken is a proud veteran of World War II. He was in the service for six years, and initially served as a cook in the Army Air Force. Later, he transferred to the 347th Infantry and was sent to Europe. He served in Corregidor near the Philippines. He talked so much about Corregidor that his daughter, Betty, with her husband, Lou, visited there with him in 1980, where you could still see the caves and fox holes. He lost 20 friends in one night there during the war. No wonder he was glad to come back home. Aside from his military career, Ken has been a farmer and a carpenter all his life. At one time, he cultivated as much as 200 acres, even as he was building houses using his carpentry skills. And, it might be noted, Ken has built many, many homes throughout the country. Ken retired from the Santa Rosa County School Board in 1988 after serving as supervisor of the maintenance department for 17 years. Ken Smith, who retired after serving somewhere near 30 years as a school board member and chairman, is Mitchems nephew and had complimentary remarks for the school board employee. He (Ken Mitchem) is one of the hardest working people I have ever known, Smith said. He is a very honest, caring, giving person. Ive known him for almost 52 years, and admire him very much. Mary Johnson, Santa Rosa County Clerk of Courts, has known Mitchem for a lifetime. Her parents were friends of his family. He helped her husband, Tom, remodel their home on Ward Basin Road. She said his work ethic and honesty have made him a good friend. Pat Hardy, his niece by marriage, also commented on him as an individual. He cares for others more than himself, she said of her uncle. Everyone in the community loves and appreciates him. He has always gone out of his way to help anyone and everyone that he could, sharing vegetables or whatever else he had with them. Before his health began to deteriorate, he helped in other ways. If someone in the community died, he would be one of the rst neighbors to cook a meal for the family. He would give you the shirt off his back or his last dollar, Hardy said. Pasco Gibson, retired principal of Bagdad Elementary School, had good words for Mitchem as well. When anything at the school needed repair, Gibson said, I was always glad to see him right there on the scene. The people from the maintenance department were prompt and worked hard to get the job done right. Gibson also said that Ken genuinely cared about the children at school. He would take a minute to look at the job and try very hard not to interrupt the classwork that was taking place. He was a caring, hard-working person, Gibson concluded. As he aged, but while he still was able to drive, you could nd him from time to time at Hardeess with his friends or family for breakfast. Later in the day, he might be seen lunching at Basss Quick Burger or the Santa Rosa Restaurant, where he delivered fresh vegetables all summer. He furnished both restaurants with home grown produce for about 30 years. Now he supervises from his electric wheelchair. His daughter and her husband have just returned from the Orlando area to help care for him and farm his property, Just like Daddy has done in the past Betty Jean said. Last summer, Daddy wanted to take a trip out west, Betty said of her father. So she took him and his granddaughter, Trinity Richburg, and his great-grandson, Craig Larson, on a four-week trip in her motorhome. They visited family in Texas, Kansas and Oregon. He thought the State of Washington was the prettiest of all the 15 states that we visited, she said. Uncle Ken is like a second father to all his nieces and nephews, they all contend. They visit or call on him for advice often. Family, relatives and his many friends are invited to join the family for the Bar-B-Que Bash beginning at 12:30 p.m. Each guest is invited to bring his or her favorite covered dish and a lawn chair. Bar-B-Que pork, breads, paper goods and drinks will be provided. And, of course, there will be a big birthday cake wishing Uncle Ken a happy 97th birthday with hopes for many more!

On what started out as a cloudy day ended with many disgusted shermen and rough waters during the 2012 United Way Fishin with a Mission Bass Tournament, co-hosted with the Three Rivers Bass Club. Several competitors came in and decided it was better to call it quits on a day many felt Mother Nature and the sh won. We caught three sh and threw them back, Joey Mann of Ensley said after loading up his boat. When the wind picked up we couldnt get to where we wanted to go. We gured after two in the afternoon we would just throw the sh back and come back in. They really werent that big. Mann wasnt the only one having issues during the tournament. It was dead at low tide this morning at 6 a.m. and then when the front came through, it didnt get much better, Brian Polk said. Amazingly, a limit of ve sh didnt even take the tournament, as the top three places involved four sh and fourth place went to a team that caught only three. The largest ve-bag limit weighed only 7.5 pounds. We caught our limit early and around 10 or 11 a.m. the water starting rising, said James Milstid, who nished ninth with partner Robert Schaefer. We kept the big one and kept culling the live one as the day went along. Milstid and his partner were using rubber worms and jerk baits. The lunker prize for the largest single sh weight of 6.02 pounds went to Wendall Cooley and his son, Wendall Cooley Jr., while the second lunker prize went to Steve Perry and Eric Welch. The Junior Angler Award, a custom rod, reel and tackle box from Southern Quality Custom Rods & Reels for children 16 years of age and younger, went to Dylan Hammac with a total of 2.26 pounds.

By BILL GAMBLIN 377-4611 | @SRPG_Bill sports@srpressgazette.com Eric Kroll cannot pull himself away from the game of baseball. The former Pace Patriot and University of West Florida Argo watched as teammates got drafted, while he had to nd a new way to keep his baseball dream alive. In late March, Kroll got the call he had been waiting for, but he traded his cleats and jersey for dress shoes and a tie as he worked in the front of ce as a sales person with the Pensacola Blue Wahoos. It is de nitely a different feeling, said Kroll, who has a FHSAA State Championship ring and a NCAA Division II Baseball National Title ring. As a player, I was never in a really big atmosphere as a player, but now I understand the amount of work everyone puts in to make the game possible. Being part of baseball from this side of a team has really opened my eyes. Before getting the call from the Blue Wahoos, Kroll was still working at UWF in the schools weight room helping baseball players and other athletes train, since he was an exercise science major while playing for the Argos. But being a part of the Blue Wahoos is much bigger for the Pace resident who took a special chance to remain in the game he loves. I have had a love of the game since I was in little league, Kroll said. That love has seen me through middle school, high school at Pace and then on to UWF where I got to play for four years. Now here, I have gotten to see the amount of time and hard work put in to make this happen. Until I joined the Blue Wahoos, I had no idea about the time and investment. On opening night, Kroll said he was so excited about the chance to operate the score board in Pensacolas win over the Montgomery Biscuits, but that doesnt mean he doesnt want to be on the eld. I joked with team President Bruce Baldwin that I was available if he ever needed somebody, Kroll said. I have even gone so far as to bring in a couple of my wooden bats that I keep in my locker here at work. I love the game so much. When I see the guys run out on to the eld, the jitters I use to get as a player come back. Despite everything the former Pace and UWF out elder has done, the only exercise he is getting are nger exercises when he types on the computer. Bruce did tell me they were possibly looking for a bullpen catcher, Kroll said. But that is a lot of responsibility, and your back is to the eld when you are working. Plus, I dont want to be the guy the game is stopped for because I let the ball get past me and roll almost to home plate. While Kroll is not a player, the word TEAM is still on his mind. What we are doing here takes a total team effort as well, Kroll said. When it comes to getting a player ready to represent Pensacola with pride or making sure everything is ready to go at the ballpark every time the gates open. Kroll, despite wearing a shirt and tie to work every day, is counting his blessings as a member of the Blue Wahoos. The thing for me is Gods pretty good and he looks out and blesses some, Kroll said. I have been blessed with this opportunity and look forward to giving back to a community that has given me so much. I have dreamed about a third ring, but right now my focus is on the opportunity that has been given to me here at home.

By MATHEW PELLEGRINO 393-3669 | @SRPG_Mat mpellegrino@srpressgazette.com Whats in a name? Shakespeare asked the question, but an East Milton resident hopes the answer is increased traf c for an ailing span. Retiree Gary Woods said he has always enjoyed helping governments solve problems. I have a history of trying to help communities with traf c issues, Woods said. I show them through fresh eyes what other people see. So it wasnt out of tune for him to develop suggestions designed to increase traf c on the Garcon Point Bridge. He thinks a different name might help nonlocals better understand where the bridge is located and what it connects. I lived in a different community for many years, and they were having traf c problems. Children were at risk, Woods said. I came up with a way to help the local people who live on those streets while also helping local police keep people from speeding. Similarly, it didnt take Woods long to spy a problem with the Garcon Point Bridge. He suggests much of the hoped-for increase in traf c will have to come from non-local traf c. And those folks, he notes, simply dont know what Garcon Point means. He thinks a different name for the span might draw more distant travelers. In the 11 years hes been here, Woods said, he has regularly used the bridge. But he thinks part of the reason distant travelers on Interstate 10 heading to Navarre or Pensacola Beach dont take the Avalon Boulevard exit is because there arent adequate signs. Youre going to Pensacola Beach, and youve been in the car for hours, Woods said. You see your rst sign after exit 26, and the sign says 3 miles Avalon Blvd. or Pensacola 17 miles. You have no clues from the sign that you can exit and (quickly get to your destination.) Naturally, you think you have to go to Pensacola to get to Pensacola Beach. Woods has been formulating a plan he says is inexpensive and effortless to implement on the county and states part. The main thing he thinks the bridge needs is more signs alerting people to the potentially shorter route. The (current) signage doesnt help alert people in any way that this is a possible exit for Pensacola Beach or Navarre, Woods said. Woods said it is only an idea, but one he believes deserves consideration. He speculates many locals, like him, use the bridge regularly because they have no other option. But he knows he cant change the local persons perception on the toll because theres nothing he or anyone else can do about the toll. For years, the bridge has been under public scrutiny for what many suggest is a too-high toll rate. Currently, the one-way toll is $3.75. I just happen to know what its like to be a distant traveler. I drive over 20,000 miles a year, Woods said. Distant travelers accounted for $975,000 in revenues in the 2010 driving season. My marketing background tells me I cant change the local population. But he believes the thoughts of travelers can be changed. The bridge originally was funded through a $95 million nongovernmental bond. Since 2002, the bridge has failed to make its twice-annual payments to bond holders. The cost for Woods idea, he said, is nothing. I have a group of customers. How can I get more from that group of customers? Woods said. What does it cost to get more customers? Next to nothing. The signage for the road, he said, would be the states responsibility. The burden is not on our county. So, locally, we can bene t from improved signage but not have any money come out of our pockets, Woods said. Woods said he really wants to notify out-of-town travelers that there is a better way to Pensacola Beach and Navarre. This is an impulse buy, Woods said. These people have been sitting in their cars for hours, and they just want to get to their destination. By promoting the bridge more, he hopes traf c to the south end of Avalon and to the bridge itself will increase. That, in turn, could spell increased business for the rms that ank the roadway. He said hes not sure when the idea will actually gain momentum. He presented the concept to county commissioners on April 9. At the time, county leaders agreed that the idea should get off the ground. (We) have everything to gain and nothing to lose, Woods said. History of the Garcon Point Bridge The 3.5-mile-long bridge was completed in 1999 because of efforts by former Florida House Speaker Bolley Bo Johnson, D-Milton. Log-jammed in environmental issues, the span took more than a decade to come to fruition. The bridge originally was named Bos Bridge in recognition of Johnsons push to get the project completed. One of the bridges stated purposes was to make a more convenient route for motorists traveling on I-10 who wanted a faster route to Gulf Breeze. It was pushed to unite both north and south Santa Rosa. In 2000, the Santa Rosa Bay Bridge Authority asked for a $500,000 loan from Florida to help pay for the bridge. That request later was denied. The bridge was funded through a $95 million nongovernmental bond sale. The bond required that the payment be tied to a toll schedule. Since 2002, the bridge has failed to make its twice-annual payments. WHATS IN A NAME? East Milton resident: Name change could bring more traf c to Garcon Point Bridge Youre going to Pensacola Beach, and youve been in the car for hours. You see your rst sign after exit 26, and the sign says miles Avalon Blvd. or Pensacola 17 miles. You have no clues from the sign that you can exit and (quickly get to your destination.)

My friends say I should rent out my backyard to weddings, Muller said. Muller is a Pensacola resident who made her way to Milton on Saturday to buy more plants for her yard, which is getting a lot of green thumbs-up from neighbors and family. Muller said she couldnt count on one hand how many times she had been to the Emerald Coast Flower and Garden Festival at the Pensacola State College campus, but said she comes every year, rain or shine. Its therapy to me, Muller said. Mullers backyard is a retreat. She lives just over Escambia Bay in Pensacola. My husband always says Im going to die with a hose in my hand, Muller laughed. Its my retreat away from everything. Her retreat looks more like a vacation spot. A chandelier hangs above an iron table where she says she plays tea party with her grandchildren. I had a tea party out there with them. One is 9 and the other is 12, Muller said. They love coming over. And while Muller was sharing the story of her dream backyard, there were others at the festival who were really showing their green thumb. Just ask Milton resident Joyce Kimmons. She may live off of Avalon Boulevard, but she doesnt let the construction get to her garden. Kimmons came to the plant sale on Friday looking for some therapy. The nurse has a hospital bed in her yard that she is planning on constructing a raised ower bed in. Next to the bed, a commode, and of course, a bed pan, all full of plants. I wanted to get enough owers to make the bed look like it had a quilt on it, Kimmons said. Ive been thinking about turning this hospital bed into a ower bed now for 20 years, Kimmons said. Thanks to some vendors at the 15th annual Emerald Coast Flower and Garden Festival, Kimmons dream may nally become a reality. Kimmons carried around a digital camera full of photos of what she wants her dream hospital room to look like. Everything I bought here last year did so well, Kimmons said. I look forward to it every year. Everyone is so helpful and so friendly. For others like Tammy Simmons of Milton, green vegetables were on the top of her list. Simmons said she was at the festival to scoop up some herbs and vegetables for her garden. Im just here for herbs and vegetables, Simmons said. I just like to grow my own vegetables. Green with envy Plant sale caters to garden enthusiasts Hundreds ocked to the annual garden sale at Pensacola State College campus in Milton on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Local Santa Rosas Press Gazette| B9 Wednesday, April 18, 2012 2075798 By MATHEW PELLEGRIINO 393-3669 | @SRPG_Mat mpellegrino@srpressgazette.com There was a lot of itching going on this weekend at the Fleas across Florida. The event, which is now running twice a year, has vendors and buyers flocking far and wide, especially to the Milton, Pace areas. There definitely is a lot more going on this year, said Cathy Hilliard, who came from Baker to go browsing. We went last year and made the drive all the way from Crestview to Pace. Hilliard said she and her husband like flea markets and yard sales, but the Fleas across Florida is an event they especially look forward to. You dont really come to these things looking for something specific, Hilliard said. We kind of browse and look at junk. Another persons junk is another ones treasure. Hilliard said she was going to continue to make the trek up and down the flea market route twice a year to scoop up hard finds and bargains as much as she possibly could. We were able to go to the worlds longest yard sale, Hilliard said. Im hoping one day, this event can live up to that. Other bargain hunters traveled from Crestview to the Pea Ridge Flea Market to browse for treasure. We just like to look around, said Joyce Bowman. You cant come to a flea market and have something you want in mind. You just kind of find your treasure. And that treasure was loaded on the dozens of tables that lined Highway 90 through Pace and Milton over the weekend. We dont do this very often, but I heard of the Fleas Across Florida and had to go, Bowman said. Some finds, like the one Kim Grannon of Pensacola scooped up on her way into Milton, were one of a kind. I love collecting things that I know you cant find just anywhere, Grannon said. Grannon scooped up a typewriter for $5 and a handful of old records. I still collect these old things, she said holding up about 10 records. And theyre really hard to find, which is why I like going to these type of events.

Wednesday April 18, 2012 FREE EDITION TAKE ONE BANGKOK (AP) A oating mosque and golf course for the submerging Maldives islands. Amphibious homes in the Netherlands lifted to safety as waters surge beneath them. A hospital perched on 400 stilts to protect patients from Thailands devastating oods and the encroaching sea. Around the world, architects and city planners are exploring ways mankind and water might be able to coexist as oceans rise and other phenomenon induced by climate change, including extreme, erratic oods, threaten landrooted living. With the Dutch at the helm, projects in the cutting-edge eld of aqua-architecture are already in place, including a maritime housing estate, oating prison and greenhouses in the Netherlands. An increasing number are coming on stream, and though earlier blueprints appeared to be the stuff of science ction, advocates say leaps of imagination are still needed given the magnitude of the danger. The focus on oating solutions has grown enormously. It has shifted from freak architecture to more sustainable, exible alternatives, said Dutch architect Koen Olthuis, citing growing support by governments and interest among private investors in Asia and Russia. We will have to live with a more watery environment. There is no choice, said Danai Thaitakoo, a Thai landscape architect whose own Bangkok house was swamped last year as the country suffered its worst oods of modern times. The Thai capital is also among the mega coastal cities projected by the end of this century to lie totally or partially under water as global warming boosts sea levels, according to the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. Others include Tokyo, London, Jakarta, Sydney and Shanghai, an apocalyptic prospect of mass migrations and economic crises. Though in earlier decades architects and planners, particularly Japanese and Americans, dreamed of entire marine cities housing millions, most today are proposing a mix of defending communities with barriers and building on water using oating platforms, raised or amphibious structures and solutions still being devised. Climate change will require a radical shift within design practice from the solid-state view of landscape urbanism to the more dynamic, liquid-state view of waterscape urbanism, says Danai, who is involved in several projects based on this principle. Instead of embodying permanence, solidity and longevity, liquid perception will emphasize change, adaptation. In a study for low-lying New York, Olthuis said he envisioned Manhattan ringed by a sea wall with outlying boroughs allowing water to enter and adapting. The worlds Londons and Bangkoks, he said, might become hydro-cities, their historic hearts and concentrated core development waterproofed and other areas going with the ow. The Netherlands, a third of which lies below sea level, has been managing water since the Middle Ages and is thus a pioneer in the eld. It has exported its expertise to Indonesia, China, Thailand, Dubai and the Republic of the Maldives, an Indian Ocean archipelago that with a maximum elevation of about 8 feet is the worlds lowest country. The sea-battered city of New Orleans has also sought advice from Olthuiss Waterstudio. In the Maldives, Waterstudio has designed a network of oating islands, the rst to be put in place next year, to accommodate hotels, a convention center, yacht club and villas. The islands, secured by steel cables, are made up of pontoons with a foam core encased in concrete that can be joined together like Lego blocks. An 18-hole golf course also will be set on such platforms, each with two to three holes, connected by underwater tunnels. The $500 million project, paid for by the Maldivian government and private investors, is slated for completion in 2015. A oating mosque, originally destined for Dubai before an economic downturn hit, is also part of the master plan, Olthuis said. Following the principles of water will always nd its way and collaborating with nature, the Dutch have reversed some of their earlier strategy of tightly defending their land with dikes by allowing the sea to penetrate some areas on which housing has been constructed. One pioneering effort was the placement of amphibious and oating homes on the River Maas in 2005. All survived major 2011 oods that forced the evacuation of villages along rain-swollen rivers.

A2 | Santa Rosa Free Press Wednesday, April 18, 2012 AQUA from page A1 Construction recently began on the Olthuis-designed New Water estate, 600 homes and a luxury apartment complex on land purposely inundated. Interest in water-based living and work space has accelerated over the past decade, he said, and Waterstudios drawing boards are stacked with plans for local and international projects. Typical amphibious houses, like the two-story ones on the Maas, consist of a structure that slides into a steel framework over a hollow foundation which, like the hull of a ship, buoys up the building when water enters. The Maas houses sell from $310,000, about 25 percent more than equivalent homes, in part because the cost of connecting them to utilities and drainage. But Olthuis said such linkages are simple and present no inconvenience to owners. Just proven technology of plug-and-play systems. All tested and used for years in Holland, he said. The only time you will see a difference between a oating house and the traditional one is during oods, when your house rises above the water and your neighbors stays put, Olthuis said. Along similar lines will be Britains rst amphibious house, recently granted planning permission along the banks of the Thames River in Buckinghamshire. The 2,421square-foot home will be able to rise to 8.2 feet in the event of ooding. Thai architect Chutayaves Sinthuphan, who will be unveiling a pilot amphibious house for the Thai government in September, said interest in such projects has grown since last years oods, which killed more than 600 people and affected more than a fth of the countrys 64 million people. We have had proposals out for some time, but nobody paid much attention to them until the oods came, he said. His Site-Speci c Company already has built such houses for private clients, using modern techniques and materials, but like other architects in Asia, looking to a past when communities adapted well to annual monsoon season inundations. They point to a riverside village in the southern province of Surat Thani, where everyone lived on homes atop bamboo rafts until all but three families moved on land. Those three homes were the only ones that survived last years oods. In the mid-19th century, almost all of Bangkok lived on houses built atop stilts or rafts. Since then, most canals have been paved over and the stilt houses replaced by a concrete urbanscape that holds back water instead of allowing it to ow through. Architect Prisdha Jumsai has borrowed from traditional methods to design Thailands rst hospital for the aged. Work has begun on the 300-bed hospital over a permanently ooded area near Bangkok that is also subject to tides from the nearby Gulf of Thailand. Concrete stilts will raise its rst oor about 13 feet above average water levels. We hope this will inuence people not to just ll in land but to build on water. I think it will open up new ideas for Thais who can look to traditional architecture and make it more up-to-date in design, Prisdha said. But this still appears to be a minority view. Most Thais look to Western, land-based models, and most architects still dont talk about environmental concerns. They talk about how a house will look and make you feel good, Danai said. But this will have to change. Its about survival. AP A boat sails past amphibious homes on the River Maas in Maasbommel, Netherlands. The Netherlands, a third of which lies below sea level, has been managing water since the Middle Ages and has emerged as a pioneer in the eld. YOKOSUKA, Japan (AP) To the worlds military leaders, the debate over climate change is long over. They are preparing for a new kind of Cold War in the Arctic, anticipating that rising temperatures there will open up a treasure trove of resources, long-dreamed-of sea lanes and a slew of potential con icts. By Arctic standards, the region already is buzzing with military activity, and experts believe that will increase signi cantly in the years ahead. Last month, Norway wrapped up one of the largest Arctic maneuvers ever, Exercise Cold Response, with 16,300 troops from 14 countries training on the ice for everything from high intensity warfare to terror threats. Attesting to the harsh conditions, ve Norwegian troops were killed when their C-130 Hercules aircraft crashed near the summit of Kebnekaise, Swedens highest mountain. The U.S., Canada and Denmark held major exercises two months ago, and in an unprecedented move, the military chiefs of the eight main Arctic powers Canada, the U.S., Russia, Iceland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland gathered at a Canadian military base recently to speci cally discuss regional security issues. None of this means a shooting war is likely at the North Pole any time soon. But as the number of workers and ships increases in the High North to exploit oil and gas reserves, so will the need for policing, border patrols and if push comes to shove military muscle to enforce rival claims. The U.S. Geological Survey estimates 13 percent of the worlds undiscovered oil and 30 percent of its untapped natural gas is in the Arctic. Shipping lanes could be regularly open across the Arctic by 2030 as rising temperatures continue to melt the sea ice, according to a National Research Council analysis commissioned by the U.S. Navy last year. What countries should do about climate change remains a heated political debate. But that has not stopped northlooking militaries from moving ahead with strategies that assume current trends will continue. Russia, Canada and the United States have the biggest stakes in the Arctic. With its military budget stretched thin by Iraq, Afghanistan and more pressing issues elsewhere, the United States has been something of a reluctant northern power, though its nuclear-powered submarine eet, which can navigate for months underwater and below the ice cap, remains second to none. Russia, one-third of which lies within the Arctic Circle, has been the most aggressive in establishing itself as the emerging regions superpower. Rob Huebert, an associate political science professor at the University of Calgary in Canada, said Russia has recovered enough from its economic troubles of the 1990s to signi cantly rebuild its Arctic military capabilities, which were a key to the overall Cold War strategy of the Soviet Union, and has increased its bomber patrols and submarine activity. He said that has led other Arctic countries Norway, Denmark and Canada to resume regional military exercises they had abandoned or cut back on after the Soviet collapse. Even non-Arctic nations such as France have expressed interest in deploying their militaries to the Arctic. We have an entire ocean region that had previously been closed to the world now opening up, Huebert said. There are numerous factors now coming together that are mutually reinforcing themselves, causing a buildup of military capabilities in the region. This is only going to increase as time goes on. Noting that the Arctic is warming twice as fast as the rest of the globe, the U.S. Navy in 2009 announced a beefed-up Arctic Roadmap by its own task force on climate change that called for a three-stage strategy to increase readiness, build cooperative relations with Arctic nations and identify areas of potential con ict. We want to maintain our edge up there, said Cmdr. Ian Johnson, the captain of the USS Connecticut, one of the U.S. Navys most Arctic-capable nuclear submarines, which was deployed to the North Pole last year. Our interest in the Arctic has never really waned. It remains very important. But the U.S. remains illequipped for large-scale Arctic missions, according to a simulation conducted by the U.S. Naval War College. A summary released last month found the Navy is inadequately prepared to conduct sustained maritime operations in the Arctic because it lacks ships able to operate in or near Arctic ice, support facilities and adequate communications. The ndings indicate the Navy is entering a new realm in the Arctic, said Walter Berbrick, a War College professor who participated in the simulation. Instead of other nations relying on the U.S. Navy for capabilities and resources, sustained operations in the Arctic region will require the Navy to rely on other nations for capabilities and resources. He added that although the U.S. nuclear submarine eet is a major asset, the Navy has severe gaps elsewhere it doesnt have any icebreakers, for example. The only one in operation belongs to the Coast Guard. The U.S. is mulling whether to add more. Acknowledging the need to keep apace in the Arctic, the United States is pouring funds into guring out what climate change will bring and has been working closely with the scienti c community to calibrate its response. The most immediate challenge might not be war both military and commercial assets are sparse enough to give all countries elbow room for a while but whether militaries can respond to a disaster. Heather Conley, director of the Europe program at the London-based Center for Strategic and International Studies, said militaries probably will have to rescue their own citizens in the Arctic before any confrontations arise there. Catastrophic events, like a cruise ship suddenly sinking or an environmental accident related to the regions oil and gas exploration, would have a profound impact in the Arctic, she said. The risk is not militarization; it is the lack of capabilities while economic development and human activity dramatically increases that is the real risk.

Santa Rosa Free Press| A3 Wednesday, April 18, 2012 NEW YORK (AP) Ameri cans were laughing at Hyundais cars when John Krafcik joined the company eight years ago. The cars were ugly and often broke down. The only reason to buy one was be cause it was cheap. Jay Leno once joked that you could double a Hyundais value by lling it up with gas. No ones laughing now. The Korean automakers quality has improved, and its among the leaders in fuel efciency and styling. Sales are up more than 60 percent since 2008, the year Krafcik became CEO of American operations. Hyundais El antra compacts and Sonata midsize sedans are in such demand that few discounts are offered. And although the companys U.S. sales are just a fraction of Gener al Motors or Fords, theyre growing so quickly that Hyundai is feared by every other carmaker. Hyundai already had started to change before Krafcik arrived, offering a 10-year, 100,000 mile war ranty with its cars. But the transformation from joke to juggernaut accelerated un der his watch. Krafcik, 50, is a Stanfordtrained engineer and manu facturing expert. He began his career as a manufactur ing engineer at a General Motors-Toyota joint venture factory set up so GM could learn how Toyota made cars. While working for the venture in the early 1980s, he saw the gap in standards between Japanese and American plants. He has fo cused on quality ever since. Despite Hyundais turn around, Krafcik still worries about quality. It only takes one small mistake with a critical part in a safety-related system to derail all of the good work that weve done, he said. Krafcik recently spoke with The Associated Press in New York. He talked about his management style, cup holders and the success of his company, which has its American headquarters in Costa Mesa, Calif. Here are excerpts, edited for clarity and style: Q: Your company has made a remarkable turn around since the early 1990s when it sold inex pensive cars that fell apart. How did you make the transformation? A: First you had to build that foundation of qual ity and consumer trust. By the time we got to the late s, we knew that our qual ity was good. We knew our reputation was horrible. And the Americas Best Warranty, that 10-year, 100,000-mile powertrain warranty, ended up being huge. We were able to take ourselves from about 90,000 units (cars and trucks) per year at the absolute pits of our sales this was in the late 90s to 300,000 and 400,000 within four or ve years. Q: That was a bet-thecompany move? A: It was an absolute betthe-company move. If we had gotten that one wrong, then the company would have failed. And rather quickly, too, as the warran ty expense and exposure are signicant when youre taking a bath that big. Q: Hyundai has pushed the envelope in its car de signs, and other companies are just now catching up with the Elantra and So nata. How did you pull that off? A: It just takes courage and a willingness to take risks. So with Sonata, the conventional orthodoxy in the industry was midsize cars should be styled con servatively. This is typical market research talking. We know this because we talk to our midsize car buyers all the time. Heres what they say: Safety. Quality. I want a good value and a fair price. And about number seven or eight on the pecking order is de sign. From that mentality has come the point of view that midsize cars should look like (Toyota) Camrys and (Honda) Accords and (Chevrolet) Malibus. Q: Why would you take a risk on design when it was conventional wisdom not to? A: Products starting with the 05 Tucson and the 06 Sonata were designed in a safe and conservative manner. It didnt move the needle in terms of sales. You go through that and you nally see the pattern. You cant just accept safe. So now when we do our re search, we categorize peo ple before they come (in) as either conservative or progressive in their design thought. And we can then weight the results. It gives more weight to what we call design progressives. Q: What else happens in your market research? A: Well send a couple of product planners and mar ket researchers out with consumers and just liter ally spend a day or two with them, looking at their cars. Seeing how they live their lives around their cars. When they go to Costco, where do they put those big, huge things of toilet paper? It gives us insights. Were trying to nd what we call unmet needs. Q: What are Americans looking for in cars now? A: Fuel economy is de nitely on their mind. Its huge. As fuel prices go up, interest in the compact car segment goes up. So com pact cars now are selling very, very well. Fuel-efcient cars are selling very, very well. Were seeing more dis cretionary car purchases now. More car purchases that arent driven speci cally because my car is old or my car is fuel-inefcient. Q: Whats something that has surprised you about how people use their cars? A : The car as personal living space. Its amazing how much stuff people car ry around. Finding room for peoples stuff is one of our priority focal points. Let me give you a great example. Cup holders and bottle hold ers. This is a great success for Hyundai, and it took some time to convince the engineers that this is what we needed to do (because) cup holders cost money. If youre going to do them right, they have little grip per ngers and you have to make more expensive molds and stuff. Engineers never understand why a driver would need two cup holders and the front seat passenger would also need two cup holders. Q: What could derail your sales growth? A: It only takes one small mistake with a critical part in a safety-related system to derail all of the good work that weve done. So were being so careful and cautious, putting in qual ity operating systems and ensuring that everything is working with them. We need to get to this point of tier-one quality in every thing we do. But were not there yet. Q: What in Detroits corporate cultures caused them to get into trouble, and what did you learn from being there? A: Hyundais culture is something refreshing. This idea that bold targets drive great things. (It) just stretches your boundaries, your mind and your team in ways that you wouldnt oth erwise have stretched and achieved. Working at GM, Toyota, and Ford, the ap proach was more focused on, Lets set targets that were fairly condent of be ing able to get to. Thats OK, but the outlook is de cidedly less optimistic in a company like that. Q: Is the auto industry becoming cool to work for again? A: I would say so. Theres no industry cooler, no indus try more complicated and more important to indus trial economies. Its always been a sore point for me that the industry has had a bit of a black eye. That peo ple would think of us as not being quick on our feet, and not being responsive to con sumer needs. And maybe, honestly, some of that has been true. But what weve been through in the last cou ple of years has gotten rid of a lot of old bad habits. I see the industry now stronger, more vibrant than its ever been. I do see us recruiting a lot of really smart people. Q: Who are your mentors? A: Maybe the most in uential guy was a fellow named Yoshimitsu Ogihara. He was a Toyota guy. He would teach like this: He would say OK, John-san. I want to send you to Okla homa City GM plant. You go there. Make one-page, Toy ota-style report. And come back. And Id say, OK, Ogihara-san. What do you want me to look for? You will see. So I go there. It was this big place. Huge piles of in ventory in cardboard box es. People sleeping in those cardboard boxes. Massive parking lots lled with cars with parts missing. And the windshield wiper in the up position, which I later learned meant this car needed to be repaired. Every car in that huge lot, thousands of them, had their windshield wiper up. I remember writing this onepage report, just kind of de tailing what I saw. I said, What do you think? He said, OK. Now I need to send you to Toyota City (the Corolla factory). It was amazing. You could see from one end of the plant to the other. Every bit of oor space had a visual indication of what it was for. The workers were working, but not crazy hard. No one was sleeping. I came back and wrote this one-page report. This was 1984, and no one really knew at the time that there was this big, huge difference between the way one company built cars and another company built cars. And I was a 23year-old kid, and I suddenly knew. So I worked there another couple years under Ogihara-san. He taught me so much but never through saying it. SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Strange secrets hide in numbers. For instance, an orange used car is least likely to be a lemon. This particular unex pected nding came to light courtesy of a data jockey who goes by the Internet alias SirGuessalot, who in fact wasnt guessing at all. Instead, he and his partner, PlanetThanet, relied on the hard math skills that make them top contenders in a sport tailor-made for the 21st century: competitive number-crunching. The used car defect prediction contest is one of dozens hosted by San Fran cisco online startup Kaggle, whose creators believe they can tap the global geek pop ulations instinct for oneupmanship to mine better answers faster from the worlds ever-rising moun tain of data. Competitions bring together a wide variety of people into a wide variety of problems, said Jeremy Howard, who became Kag gles president and chief scientist after winning mul tiple competitions himself. You get people looking at stuff theyd never look at otherwise. Though the used car contest was fun, Kaggle has its eye on weightier scien tic problems. In one con test, an English major who trained himself in data sci ence built a model for pre dicting the progress of HIV infections in individual pa tients. In another, a scien tist who studies glaciers for a living won a NASA-backed Kaggle competition to mea sure the shapes of galaxies by mapping the universes dark matter. The data problems that need solving are so impor tant that those who nd the solutions should be paid like professional athletes, said Kaggle founder Antho ny Goldbloom. By turning data-mining into a crowd sourced contest, he hopes hes created a way to make that happen. Already one of Kaggles contests offers a multimillion dollar prize. We want to see the best data scientists earning more than Tiger Woods, said Goldbloom, who start ed the company in his na tive Australia and recently came to San Franciscos South of Market startup haven. The job market for mathematicians and stat isticians has become hot as the sheer volume of data generated by ever faster, cheaper computing re sources explodes. Data storage has be come so inexpensive that a 2011 McKinsey and Co. re port estimated a disk drive capable of storing all the worlds music would cost about $600. Walmart stores 10 times more data on cus tomer transactions and other parts of its operation than is contained in the en tire Library of Congress, ac cording to the same report. Analyzing the so-called big data deluge has be come a key task for busi nesses in an effort to divine everything from which ads online customers will click to how much inventory they need to maintain. Political candidates analyze data to predict voting patterns. Dating websites try to pre dict ideal mates. Kaggle competitions fo cus on creating and testing formulas that can be used to make predictions based on the contents of giant datasets. The more accurate the formula, the better the chances it will accurately provide answers to com plex questions, such as the orange used car being the least likely to break down. Goldbloom argues that no matter how many data scientists companies hire, relying on in-house data tal ent means companies cant know if theyre getting the best solution. In a Kaggle contest, com petitors nd out as soon as they submit their solutions how they stack up against fellow contestants. They can keep trying for the du ration of the typically threemonth contests, which are highlighted on the company website. As the rst entries come in, the accuracy of compet ing models improves by leaps, Goldbloom said. As the contests progress, the improvement curve attens out. Goldbloom and Howard believe that shows the com petitive approach pushes data scientists toward the best solutions within hu man reach. Crowdsourcing allows you to squeeze data dry, Goldbloom said. Not all competitions are open to all comers, howev er. About 33,000 contestants have taken part in Kaggles public competitions, where prize money tends to top out at around $10,000. Win ners can get invited to par ticipate in elite private con tests, which might include access to sensitive private data sets. Kaggles business model depends on deep-pocketed contest sponsors like banks seeking to outdo each other with more lucrative prize purses to attract the best competitors, who them selves in theory could then make their livings off Kag gle competitions alone. The biggest prize by far open to the public is $3 million offered by the California-based Heritage Provider Network medical group to the data scientist best able to use hospital ad mission records to predict the proles of people most likely to end up in the hospi tal. The next-biggest purse is $100,000 in prizes put up by the Hewlett Foundation for algorithms that can au tomatically grade student essays. In its grandest vision of itself, the 11-person com pany backed by PayPal cofounder Max Levchin will have tens of thousands of competitions running si multaneously. Guilds of data gurus will band together to unleash software that en ters competitions automati cally. Kaggle becomes not just a way to push humans to perform at their best but to make machines themselves smarter as code-based con testants battle and learn from their mistakes. In this way, Howard said, data competitions become steps along the develop ment of articial intelli gence systems such as selfdriving cars. As for why orange used cars are most likely to be in good shape, the numbers did not hold the answer. One notion was that such a ashy color would only at tract car fanatics who would be more likely to take care of their vehicles. That didnt pan out, however, since the least well-kept used cars turned out to be purple. AP Kaggle president and chief scientist Jeremy Howard poses with an orange Volkswagen in Mountain View, Calif. As part of a study, Howard found orange used cars are less likely to be a lemon.

What brought you to Santa Rosa County? We (my family) wanted to live in a smaller town than Pensacola, and the schools are a lot better here than they are in Escambia County. Another thing that made the decision for me was getting back into radio since I managed a station at Ole Miss for four years while in college. 2. What ctional character are you the most like? I am more like Walter, one of Jeff Dunhams puppets. 3. What was your most embarrassing moment you now laugh about? Leaving the mic on during my radio show after a break. The music was playing, and I realized the public had heard the entire conversation between Martina McBride and I over the top of a song. We were just talking and then the phones lit up.

FISHING: FISHIN WITH A MISSION BASS TOURNEY WRAPS UP SPORTS, A16 By MATHEW PELLEGRINO393-3669 | @SRPG_Mat mpellegrino@srpressgazette.com Fire gutted a vacant Avalon home Monday as investigators continue to locate the cause of the blaze. The Galt City Road blaze also threatened the yards surrounding it before firefighters could get it under control around 11 a.m. I know there used to be people living in that home, but they moved to California, said John Collyer, who watched the fire from his front porch. Collyers neighbor Janie Shallue said the house had been vacant and that she believes the person who owned the home had someone looking over it. My neighbor said she heard explosions or shots right before they saw the flames, Shallue said. They had just put a for sale sign up on the home not Local economy nally picks upBy MATHEW PELLEGRINO393-3669 | @SRPG_Mat mpellegrino@srpressgazette.com Two years ago spending stopped nationally, and the crisis hit Pace particularly hard. People stopped shopping, stopped going out and cut back dramatically. Now with gas prices hitting record highs, many would expect the same thing to happen. But that is not the case in Pace. Just ask Nicki Qualls, the executive director of the Pace Area Chamber of Commerce. Weve had a lot of businesses come in and say they have picked up dramatically over the past six months, Qualls said. Not only has business picked up for her members, it is also picking up at the Chamber itself. In 1999, Pace Chamber started with a mere 50 businesses. Now the group includes roughly 323 businesses. Lots of our members have closed their business and actually reopened, Qualls said. Weve also had members that have dropped their membership and just recently renewed it with us. So business is really picking back up. In January, the Chamber put a new president at its helm. Nancy Connelly, who works at Gulf Coast Community Bank, was the woman who took over the job. According to Qualls, since then, the Chamber has started to aim toward helping out others in the local community.

Should we be having a vigil for the 24-year-old?S S u nday, 3:01 a.m. This is Faye. Im only a concerned citizen of Santa Rosa County. Do not change Avalon Boulevards name to suit the south end of Santa Rosa County. Tourists are ne. But do not support one end of the county. Anyone looking for Gulf Breeze and Avalon or the beaches have GPS systems and can nd their own way. Stop trying to divide the county. The north end also has a lot to offer. We have rivers, canoeing, state parks, antiques, restaurants, hotels, motels and the Veterans Memorial Park. We need more tourists also. Thank you very much Press Gazette, you are doing a good job. S S a turday, 5:10 p.m. I just want you to know how much Im enjoying the Word on the Street article where you ask different questions. You give a very good representation of the county. I wish you would take this article and replace the Pro/Con with Word on the Street because all it does it take up space. Several people that Ive talked to agree with me about that. So I think you should do a survey and see who is reading that in a positive way. Thank you so much. S S a turday, 4:36 p.m. In the April 15, PARADE edition: What People Earn: Actors, authors, singers, athletes and Snooki earned millions per year.

Nice to know our country has its priorities in order.S S a turday, 4:19 p.m. Hi, this is Sandy. I just nished reading the article Whats in Store for the FCAT in the Saturday, April 14 Press Gazette. Thats a very good article, and I am in favor of making that test harder. In terms of the way it is graded, the teachers do spend a lot of time working on this test. But, in the younger elementary schools where I volunteer, we work on trying to get them to the next grade level, especially in reading and math. These teachers do work hard and are dedicated in this school district. And if someone is not procient, I think that lies on what they do beyond school hours. And I just want to thank all the teachers, administrators that dedicate their time and careers to helping the children be the best they can be. Thank you. S S a turday, 4:16 a.m. My name is Dale. I dont know what world Gary Woods and the rest of these board members of the bridge are in, but let me tell you what happens in the real world. Travelers have GPS systems, and they already know the quick route to the beach. They see the alternate routes to the beach, and they choose not to pay a toll. And if the ones that want to pay a toll are going to pay a toll, they are not going to worry about the name of the road. I travel for a living. I always know what highway number Im on. But when I get down to the street level, Im looking at then GPS and if it says turn right three blocks, I could care less what the name of the street is. And you can change it to mean any kind of expressway you want. Its not going to increase trafc on that bridge. Youre just messing with local business. The government needs to stop messing with the businesses on Avalon. S S a turday, 3:09 p.m. Regarding the young black woman who said shed vote for Obama because hes black: I applaud your honesty and courage. There is about 30 million white folks that voted against him for the same reason, but dont have the guts to publicly admit it. P.S., Obama really is a nativeborn American citizen, so get over it. Do yall realize how ignorant and racist it sounds to keep demanding more and more proof, when nothing will ever satisfy the lunatic fringe? Pete.F F r iday, 10:48 a.m. This is Mary again about the patrolmen taking their cars home. I was really referring to Escambia deputies and City of Pensacola policeman living in Santa Rosa County. How can they have a quicker response to a call when they dont even live in their county? Some of our deputies live in Escambia County. I dont understand how they can take their vehicles home. Thank you. Thursday, 4:50 p.m. Hey, this is Ed. There is a pretty Avalon Boulevard sign on Highway 90. When they get it nished, that is going be nice and lighted. How much is this going to cost us to change up these signs up there? Leave it the way it is. Thank you. Thursday, 2:25 p.m. I got a green pepper plant from Milton Clean Community.

Collyer said he saw a man at the home yesterday, but he believed it was someone who was taking care of the home. Fireghters fought the ames for almost an hour on what they thought was a brick structure home. We found out that on the inside it was actually a doublewide structure, and over the years they had skinned it and put a roof over it, said Pace Volunteer Fire District Lt. Nick Anderson. The re was actually between the old tin roof of the trailer and under the pitch roof they built on top of it. Avalon Fire Department Fire chief Sid Wiggins said his crew put two piercing lines into the roof of the structure to keep the re from spreading. It helped slow the ames in the attic, Wiggins said. Its better to use that method when you dont want to put your men on the roof. Wiggins said when he arrived on the scene, ames were shooting out the back of the home. He said the State Fire Marshal was called in from Pensacola to assess the scene. Gulf Power later came in to cut off power to surrounding homes. All I know is they moved to California about six months ago, Collyer said. They had rats in that home. It wasnt the best of living in that home. The cause of the re is still under investigation by the State Fire Marshals ofce. The Pace Volunteer Fire District, Bagdad Fire Department, Avalon Fire Department, Skyline Fire Department, the Santa Rosa County Sheriffs Ofce and LifeGuard Ambulance all responded to the scene on Monday. FIRE from page A1 NEIGHBOR from page A1ting Board with her husband, Jerry Kindle, said she has changed minimal things to bring in business since she took over in January.

The economy could affect us, but we are just going with the business, as they say, Glover said. Qualls said she envisions the Pace area will continue to flourish in the future, and the only criticism she hears from locals is that the area needs more restaurants. We have had a few people come in and inquire about starting new restaurants in the area, Qualls said. I would love to see more restaurants in the area. Glover said restaurants like hers are always flourishing as long as you keep the food good and the people happy. We wanted to keep it the way it was for our customers, Glover said. We believe if it isnt broke, we dont need to fix it. Businesses that join the Chamber get more than just a name in the community, Qualls said.

LocalSanta Rosas Press Gazette| A7Wednesday, April 18, 2012 Avalon Nursery re-emerges with easier access, offering greater inventoryBy OBIE CRAINPress Gazette Advertorial You cant put a great nursery down, no matter how hard you try. And Caseys Nursery & Landscaping at 3851 Avalon Blvd. is a good example of such a challenge! Years of disruptive highway construction out front, together with a recent, uncooperative early spring, have certainly made a difference in the volume of their business. But the perseverance of owners Jon and Deb Casey and construction progress on its highway frontage are paying off with more new friends and a greaterthan-ever inventory of quality nursery stock. Business has been lean for the last couple of years, Deb said, looking out over 5 acres of some of the most attractive trees, owers and shrubs commercially available anywhere in Santa Rosa County. Its been so hard for people to get in or out of here or even travel Avalon Boulevard at all that has caused us to lose a lot of business. But business has picked up steadily. Im optimistic about things now since theyve made such headway in the road construction out front, she said. That has made it easier for customers to get in and out. While the construction was choking off customers, Jon and Deb took advantage of the lull and spent more time and effort developing and adding to their already ample and available supply of nursery stock, including trees, shrubbery and all kinds of plants. An early spring has expedited the wake-up call in a lot of vegetation on the lot, and Mother Nature is just swiping her paintbrush all over the place. Its time for those who are looking for owering plants to come out and see how they will look in their own yard. Shoppers will be able to nd almost any nursery related item theyre looking for at Caseys Nursery & Landscaping. There are shade trees, fruit trees and ornamental and citrus trees, in addition to owering evergreen, tropical and seasonal shrubs. Fruit trees are particularly popular this season, and theres plenty to choose from. Apple, pear, peach, g, plum and many others are among those available. Raspberry, strawberry, grape, muscadine, blueberry and persimmon are special items also that a lot of nurseries dont carry. Nut-bearing trees including eight varieties of pecans, black walnut, English walnut and chestnuts are among other varieties you might think are unavailable here. But Caseys has them, including orange lemon, lime, kumquat, tangerine, Satsuma and calamander trees. Flowering ornamentals are also available such as owering crab apple, white dogwood, red dogwood, purple leaf plum, weeping pussy willow, Yoshino cherry and Little Glen Magnolia. Bradford pear, Japanese magnolia, weeping mulberry and eucalyptus are also among those youll nd at Caseys. Maples, Japanese sycamore, sweet gum, tulip, popular, bald cypress and bay magnolia are some of the outstanding shade trees on the lot. Of course, shrubs such as hydrangeas, azaleas, bridal wreath, gardenias, camellias and many others are among the inventory at Caseys also. Vines include Clematis, Passion, Mondavilla, Allemande and wisteria. Not only do they carry of the usual shrubs, roses, vines, citrus, palms and lilies, among others, they carry unusual and hard-to-nd plants, especially in spring perennials. In fact, Deb says they carry one of the widest selections of perennials youll nd anywhere in this area. And with the early spring. the Jackson & Perkins and knockout roses are blooming their hearts out. Jon and Deb, who own and personally supervise the activities at Caseys Nursery & Landscaping, are wise when it comes to vegetation growing schedules and have long been making preparations to have things ready for you to minimize the time and effort it will cost you when youre ready to come in and make those nal arrangements for transplanting. And to assist you in the upkeep and maintenance of your nursery stock, youll nd everything you need in the way of chemicals, fertilizers, soil amendments, mulches, feeders, herbicides, weed preventers, zinc and magnesium sulfate. And thats not all, even if you think there cant be any more! Caseys Nursery & Landscaping is ready to provide you with expert landscaping services, just as readily as the vegetation to make it attractive. Dont be shy! Ask Jon or Deb any of the questions you wish about the merchandise they furnish. They will be happy to work with you on solving any landscaping project or challenge you can come up with. As for customer service and assistance, Caseys offers one above the maximum Five Star service you might be told you are getting from others. Competitive prices are also an attractive item to consider at Caseys. They grow their own stock, which means it can be delivered more inexpensively. That, then, is passed on to you, the customer, in the form of lower prices. Deb says they are always thinking about the customer, what he or she might want or appreciate, at Caseys Nursery & Landscaping. She said people seem to sometimes like a few new things sprinkled in with the traditional, and we make every effort not to disappoint them! We only sell the healthiest nursery stock available, Deb says. And theres no exception to the rule: We provide only those nursery items that will grow in this area. That, simply put, means that no one at Caseys Nursery & Landscaping will try to pass off items to a customer that will not grow here. If there is something you think Jon or Deb or any of their staff might be able to help you with, give them a call. The telephone number is 850-623-8109, and your call will be acknowledged. Hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays. Their loss from the outward environmental factors such as the road construction will be your gain because they have had more time get things ready for you! With all the blooms that spring has encouraged, Caseys Nursery & Landscapings 5 acres are some of the most attractive youll encounter anywhere on Avalon Boulevard. Stop in and see why! Business back in bloom at Caseys Nursery & Landscaping

One of the most thankless jobs is held by those in the law enforcement. Weve all heard the old saying Theres never a cop around when you need one. And all too often, when one IS around, its because weve been caught doing something we should not have. Yes, the job is thankless, but what makes it worse is when politics gets thrown into the mix. Every week, we publish the Sheriffs Report. It lists felony arrests and is a physical example of just how hard the deputies work. This report is there every week of the year. But we cant help noticing how much more the arrests are crowed about when it is an election year. A couple of weeks ago, Santa Rosa County Sheriff Wendell Hall called a press conference to announce the apprehension, or future apprehension, of 30-plus individuals for methamphetamine and other drug-related allegations. He provided the media with a list of 94 or so other individuals arrested for drugs since the start of their methamphetamine investigation back in October. A week or so later, two businesses had search warrants executed for spice and bath salts. It is a great thing to get these things off our streets, and were not suggesting anyone tries harder in election years. We just note we hear about it much more in years in which an election will be held. This is an election year. The numbers show Hall is doing an awesome job controlling drugs. In 2008, 506 misdemeanor and 472 felony drug arrests were logged. In 2009, those numbers were 574 misdemeanor and 457 felony charges. Then, in 2010 there were 606 misdemeanor and 448 felony drug arrests. We show these gures to quiet rumors from some who suggest there are more drug-related arrests in election years. Obviously, these numbers show it isnt true. Not surprisingly, however, we do hear more about the arrests during election cycles. In 2008, another election year, Sheriff Hall called a press conference for those arrested in a drug investigation he called No Limit. Around July 8, 2008, Hall announced the arrest of 45 individuals in Milton and Bagdad following a two-year drug investigation. There were federal warrants, state warrants and local warrants, with some of the suspects being linked to a shooting and home invasion in Santa Rosa County as well. Another press conference in 2008 involved the arrest of an individual for 885 ecstasy pills, steroids, a cache of weapons and other harmful items. We are not opposed to busting drug dealers and those who traf c this junk on the streets of Santa Rosa County. Were all for it. We just notice how much more air time these things receive during election years. In February 2008, Santa Rosa County Sheriff Wendell Hall cracked down on illegal aliens working locally. Since, we havent heard of other illegals being arrested following that rst month or so when there were raids and investigations almost daily. We are sure the illegal problem was not eradicated in a month, but it is portrayed that way. Once we get to August, will we see even more press conferences? Deputies in Santa Rosa County are doing their jobs and, looking at the numbers, they are doing it in a consistent and unbiased manner. But the parade of these offenders during an election year may be too much. What do you think?Bad time at the beachWhile enjoying Pensacolas beaches Easter Sunday with my parents, we observed a disgraceful display of police out of control. Several, four or ve, adult women were there with babies in strollers and young children resting along a wall by Bamboo Willies on Quietwater Boardwalk. The women were mature adults in church clothing just enjoying the day with children and grandchildren. No one was loud or intoxicated. A short stocky of cer approached these ladies and began screaming loudly for them to move off the wall and keep moving. A well-dressed young male approached these ladies and asked if there was a reason the of cer was screaming at them. To our shock and surprise, another of cer, about 6-foot-3, dragged the good samaritan young man to a table to identify him and told him not to interfere or excite those people. He was admonished not to be on that beach for one year or hed be arrested. Huh?! We approached this man before leaving and told him wed be writing an account of what we witnessed and encouraged him to make a complaint. We found out the young man was a sergeant in the United States Army. We were doubly dumbfounded, imagining how scary for the children to have their mothers and relatives yelled at and disrespected. Then when a man tried to help, he was really treated very poorly and physically manhandled. What was going on did not warrant the of cers dragging him by the arm and threatening him. Please discipline these neanderthals before they hurt themselves or somebody in the public. That scene was a disgrace in a civilized society. If there is a rage or steroid problem with these two stooges do whatever necessary to chill them out or replace them.Tricia MurrayMilton, Fla. Government if you think the problems we create are bad, just wait till you see our solutions. GSA worker in video at lavish Las Vegas conference In yet another example of ongoing spending hubris, it was revealed that the GSA, your General Services Administration, spent an extravagant $835,000 for 300 workers to attend its Western regional conference in Las Vegas. We have no word yet on what the GSA spent on eastern, northern and southern regional conferences. Maybe if you waste enough taxpayer money in the regionals, you can play your way into the Final Four and then Obama takes notice. This all happens while Obama acts like he wants to cut spending. When Republicans and Democrats meet about de cit reduction, we all know it is a show. They make bold budget-cutting proclamations but, like a rst round basketball game in the NCAA tournament where a No. 1 seed plays a No. 16, the lower ranked team is hopeful but the outcome is never really in doubt. The revelations about the GSA spending outrage come on the heels of the Department of Justice admitting it spent $16 apiece for muf ns during ten DOJ conferences last year. Unless Muf n was a stripper, they were overcharged. To be fair, DOJ people had been con scating medical marijuana in California and probably just got the munchies. And the National Science Foundation wasted $2.9 billion on an Antarctic laboratory where scientists did worthless research and went skinny-dipping, and we paid for their Jell-O wrestling parties. Democrats were bothered less by the spending than by the way it upset the natural habits of polar bears, whose mating ritual now involves Jell-O shots followed by insincere banter in the hot tub. Under the watchful eye of Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes-Norton (D-DC), the GSA boondoggle was allowed. Sherlock HolmesNorton, who headed Congressional oversight on this agency, did not nd this elementary to solve. It was a rare mistake by my favorite hyphenated Congresswoman, who is accused of shaking down lobbyists for money. No one is laughing at my Eleanor Holmes-Norton tattoo now! It is nice when federal agencies can take a break from regulating and bureaucratizing to lavish upon themselves the spoils of their taxpayer hoodwinking. The agency is called the General Service Administration because the workers do no speci c tasks. What makes this overthe-top expense even more ironic is that the GSAs stated mission on its website, next to the Obama campaign-like emblem, is to develop governmentwide cost-minimization policies and other management tasks. Here are just a few of the cost-minimization techniques the Inspector General says the GSA applied to its Las Vegas convention. They paid $3,200 for a mind-reader, yet said sage did not tell them this was a bad idea. But to be fair, for a psychic to be successful there has to be a mind to read. $6,300 went for commemorative coin sets in velvet boxes for all attendees. They might as well swap our paper money for Monopoly money and save the printing cost. Other expenses included scrapbooks, presumably for their community outreach program to teach scrapbooking techniques to the homeless. Our government has the nancial discipline of a 19 year-old Ole Miss frat boy. And I am not making this up the Obama administration initially tried to blame the GSA excesses on Bush, much like our frat boy blames the towing company for costing him $200 when he messes up. Fresh from welcoming his family back from Las Vegas, Obama was said to be outraged about GSA spending. This comes from the man who ies his wife and dog to exotic vacations on separate jets, just a couple of hours from when he ies in on Air Force One. The admonishment is all a part of the Obama administrations Do as we say, not as we do philosophy. He famously disparaged Las Vegas by saying You dont blow a bunch of cash there. Personally, I prefer my odds in Vegas; at least there I have a chance at winning. It does not take a mind-reader to tell us what we need to do about government spending. A government contractor should invite all federal workers back to Las Vegas, and then Paul Ryan should change all the locks to their buildings while they are gone.

LocalA12 | Santa Rosas Press Gazette Wednesday, April 18, 2012Special to the Press GazetteKing David and King Solomon Led merry, merry lives, With many, many lady friends And many, many wives; But when old age crept over them With many, many qualms, King Solomon wrote the Proverbs And King David wrote the Psalms. Ancient Authors James Ball Naylor (1860-1945) At 97, Kenneth Van Mitchem is showing very few signs of slowing down. At 97, he still loves a party. With that in mind, on Saturday, April 21, Ken wishes to invite you and your family to help him celebrate his 97th birthday with a Bar-B-Que Bash at his home, 835 Fleming Bridge Road in the Spring Hill Community. Considered a patriarch of sorts, Ken is one of Santa Rosa Countys oldest residents, having lived in the area for the past 78 years. Born in DeFuniak Springs April 24, 1915, to Jessie and Alice (Neal) Mitchem, he is the eldest of 11 children. He dropped out of school in the seventh grade to work on the family farm and help raise his siblings. He also worked in the turpentine business along with his father. The family moved to Milton in January 1934, and he continued to work the family farm and learned to do carpentry work. Some days, he actually made one or two dollars! In 1939, he met and married Lois Hardy in the Springhill Community while working for 75 cents a day in a peanut eld owned by Mr. Beck. Some of this money was spent on a marriage certicate. To this union a daughter, Betty Jean, was born in 1944, and a son, Barnard, was born in 1958. After Loiss death in 1970, Ken married Dorothy Richburg in 1972. He then became a father to her son, Raymond. Dorothy died in May 2005, and his son, Barnard, died in May of that same year. Ken has ve grandchildren and six great-grandchildren, who all call him their Great Old Grandpa. In his early years, Ken played baseball and basketball. He pitched for a local baseball team in Munson for several years. He still loves all sports, and is a big fan of both the Atlanta Braves and the Dallas Cowboys. He followed Munsons basketball team as long as it lasted, and then followed Central High Schools team until he was 95, attending all their home games and as many of the out-of-town games as he could with his cousin, Gil Kennington. He watched Bubba Watson win The Masters Golf Tournament on Easter Sunday. Ken is a proud veteran of World War II. He was in the service for six years, and initially served as a cook in the Army Air Force. Later, he transferred to the 347th Infantry and was sent to Europe. He served in Corregidor near the Philippines. He talked so much about Corregidor that his daughter, Betty, with her husband, Lou, visited there with him in 1980, where you could still see the caves and fox holes. He lost 20 friends in one night there during the war. No wonder he was glad to come back home. Aside from his military career, Ken has been a farmer and a carpenter all his life. At one time, he cultivated as much as 200 acres, even as he was building houses using his carpentry skills. And, it might be noted, Ken has built many, many homes throughout the country. Ken retired from the Santa Rosa County School Board in 1988 after serving as supervisor of the maintenance department for 17 years. Ken Smith, who retired after serving somewhere near 30 years as a school board member and chairman, is Mitchems nephew and had complimentary remarks for the school board employee. He (Ken Mitchem) is one of the hardest working people I have ever known, Smith said. He is a very honest, caring, giving person. Ive known him for almost 52 years, and admire him very much. Mary Johnson, Santa Rosa County Clerk of Courts, has known Mitchem for a lifetime. Her parents were friends of his family. He helped her husband, Tom, remodel their home on Ward Basin Road. She said his work ethic and honesty have made him a good friend. Pat Hardy, his niece by marriage, also commented on him as an individual. He cares for others more than himself, she said of her uncle. Everyone in the community loves and appreciates him. He has always gone out of his way to help anyone and everyone that he could, sharing vegetables or whatever else he had with them. Before his health began to deteriorate, he helped in other ways. If someone in the community died, he would be one of the rst neighbors to cook a meal for the family. He would give you the shirt off his back or his last dollar, Hardy said. Pasco Gibson, retired principal of Bagdad Elementary School, had good words for Mitchem as well. When anything at the school needed repair, Gibson said, I was always glad to see him right there on the scene. The people from the maintenance department were prompt and worked hard to get the job done right. Gibson also said that Ken genuinely cared about the children at school. He would take a minute to look at the job and try very hard not to interrupt the classwork that was taking place. He was a caring, hard-working person, Gibson concluded. As he aged, but while he still was able to drive, you could nd him from time to time at Hardeess with his friends or family for breakfast. Later in the day, he might be seen lunching at Basss Quick Burger or the Santa Rosa Restaurant, where he delivered fresh vegetables all summer. He furnished both restaurants with home grown produce for about 30 years. Now he supervises from his electric wheelchair. His daughter and her husband have just returned from the Orlando area to help care for him and farm his property, Just like Daddy has done in the past Betty Jean said. Last summer, Daddy wanted to take a trip out west, Betty said of her father. So she took him and his granddaughter, Trinity Richburg, and his great-grandson, Craig Larson, on a four-week trip in her motorhome. They visited family in Texas, Kansas and Oregon. He thought the State of Washington was the prettiest of all the 15 states that we visited, she said. Uncle Ken is like a second father to all his nieces and nephews, they all contend. They visit or call on him for advice often. Family, relatives and his many friends are invited to join the family for the Bar-B-Que Bash beginning at 12:30 p.m. Each guest is invited to bring his or her favorite covered dish and a lawn chair. Bar-B-Que pork, breads, paper goods and drinks will be provided. And, of course, there will be a big birthday cake wishing Uncle Ken a happy 97th birthday with hopes for many more!

On what started out as a cloudy day ended with many disgusted shermen and rough waters during the 2012 United Way Fishin with a Mission Bass Tournament, co-hosted with the Three Rivers Bass Club. Several competitors came in and decided it was better to call it quits on a day many felt Mother Nature and the sh won. We caught three sh and threw them back, Joey Mann of Ensley said after loading up his boat. When the wind picked up we couldnt get to where we wanted to go. We gured after two in the afternoon we would just throw the sh back and come back in. They really werent that big. Mann wasnt the only one having issues during the tournament. It was dead at low tide this morning at 6 a.m. and then when the front came through, it didnt get much better, Brian Polk said. Amazingly, a limit of ve sh didnt even take the tournament, as the top three places involved four sh and fourth place went to a team that caught only three. The largest ve-bag limit weighed only 7.5 pounds. We caught our limit early and around 10 or 11 a.m. the water starting rising, said James Milstid, who nished ninth with partner Robert Schaefer. We kept the big one and kept culling the live one as the day went along. Milstid and his partner were using rubber worms and jerk baits. The lunker prize for the largest single sh weight of 6.02 pounds went to Wendall Cooley and his son, Wendall Cooley Jr., while the second lunker prize went to Steve Perry and Eric Welch. The Junior Angler Award, a custom rod, reel and tackle box from Southern Quality Custom Rods & Reels for children 16 years of age and younger, went to Dylan Hammac with a total of 2.26 pounds.

Several shermen struggled on the day due to the wind and had trouble getting a ve sh limit.By BILL GAMBLIN377-4611 | @SRPG_Bill sports@srpressgazette.com Eric Kroll cannot pull himself away from the game of baseball. The former Pace Patriot and University of West Florida Argo watched as teammates got drafted, while he had to nd a new way to keep his baseball dream alive. In late March, Kroll got the call he had been waiting for, but he traded his cleats and jersey for dress shoes and a tie as he worked in the front of ce as a sales person with the Pensacola Blue Wahoos. It is de nitely a different feeling, said Kroll, who has a FHSAA State Championship ring and a NCAA Division II Baseball National Title ring. As a player, I was never in a really big atmosphere as a player, but now I understand the amount of work everyone puts in to make the game possible. Being part of baseball from this side of a team has really opened my eyes. Before getting the call from the Blue Wahoos, Kroll was still working at UWF in the schools weight room helping baseball players and other athletes train, since he was an exercise science major while playing for the Argos. But being a part of the Blue Wahoos is much bigger for the Pace resident who took a special chance to remain in the game he loves. I have had a love of the game since I was in little league, Kroll said. That love has seen me through middle school, high school at Pace and then on to UWF where I got to play for four years. Now here, I have gotten to see the amount of time and hard work put in to make this happen. Until I joined the Blue Wahoos, I had no idea about the time and investment. On opening night, Kroll said he was so excited about the chance to operate the score board in Pensacolas win over the Montgomery Biscuits, but that doesnt mean he doesnt want to be on the eld. I joked with team President Bruce Baldwin that I was available if he ever needed somebody, Kroll said. I have even gone so far as to bring in a couple of my wooden bats that I keep in my locker here at work. I love the game so much. When I see the guys run out on to the eld, the jitters I use to get as a player come back. Despite everything the former Pace and UWF out elder has done, the only exercise he is getting are nger exercises when he types on the computer. Bruce did tell me they were possibly looking for a bullpen catcher, Kroll said. But that is a lot of responsibility, and your back is to the eld when you are working. Plus, I dont want to be the guy the game is stopped for because I let the ball get past me and roll almost to home plate. While Kroll is not a player, the word TEAM is still on his mind. What we are doing here takes a total team effort as well, Kroll said.

But being a part of the Blue Wahoos is much bigger for the Pace resident who took a special chance to remain in the game he loves. I have had a love of the game since I was in little league, Kroll said. That love has seen me through middle school, high school at Pace and then on to UWF Plus, I dont want to be the guy the game is stopped for because I let the ball get past me and roll almost to home plate. While Kroll is not a player, the word TEAM is still on his mind. What we are doing here takes a total team effort as well, Kroll said.

By MATHEW PELLEGRINO393-3669 | @SRPG_Mat mpellegrino@srpressgazette.com Whats in a name? Shakespeare asked the question, but an East Milton resident hopes the answer is increased traf c for an ailing span. Retiree Gary Woods said he has always enjoyed helping governments solve problems. I have a history of trying to help communities with traf c issues, Woods said. I show them through fresh eyes what other people see. So it wasnt out of tune for him to develop suggestions designed to increase traf c on the Garcon Point Bridge. He thinks a different name might help nonlocals better understand where the bridge is located and what it connects. I lived in a different community for many years, and they were having traf c problems. Children were at risk, Woods said. I came up with a way to help the local people who live on those streets while also helping local police keep people from speeding. Similarly, it didnt take Woods long to spy a problem with the Garcon Point Bridge. He suggests much of the hoped-for increase in traf c will have to come from non-local traf c. And those folks, he notes, simply dont know what Garcon Point means. He thinks a different name for the span might draw more distant travelers. In the 11 years hes been here, Woods said, he has regularly used the bridge. But he thinks part of the reason distant travelers on Interstate 10 heading to Navarre or Pensacola Beach dont take the Avalon Boulevard exit is because there arent adequate signs. Youre going to Pensacola Beach, and youve been in the car for hours, Woods said. You see your rst sign after exit 26, and the sign says 3 miles Avalon Blvd. or Pensacola 17 miles. You have no clues from the sign that you can exit and (quickly get to your destination.) Naturally, you think you have to go to Pensacola to get to Pensacola Beach. Woods has been formulating a plan he says is inexpensive and effortless to implement on the county and states part. The main thing he thinks the bridge needs is more signs alerting people to the potentially shorter route. The (current) signage doesnt help alert people in any way that this is a possible exit for Pensacola Beach or Navarre, Woods said. Woods said it is only an idea, but one he believes deserves consideration. He speculates many locals, like him, use the bridge regularly because they have no other option. But he knows he cant change the local persons perception on the toll because theres nothing he or anyone else can do about the toll. For years, the bridge has been under public scrutiny for what many suggest is a too-high toll rate. Currently, the one-way toll is $3.75. I just happen to know what its like to be a distant traveler. I drive over 20,000 miles a year, Woods said. Distant travelers accounted for $975,000 in revenues in the 2010 driving season. My marketing background tells me I cant change the local population. But he believes the thoughts of travelers can be changed. The bridge originally was funded through a $95 million nongovernmental bond. Since 2002, the bridge has failed to make its twice-annual payments to bond holders. The cost for Woods idea, he said, is nothing. I have a group of customers. How can I get more from that group of customers? Woods said. What does it cost to get more customers? Next to nothing. The signage for the road, he said, would be the states responsibility. The burden is not on our county. So, locally, we can bene t from improved signage but not have any money come out of our pockets, Woods said. Woods said he really wants to notify out-of-town travelers that there is a better way to Pensacola Beach and Navarre. This is an impulse buy, Woods said. These people have been sitting in their cars for hours, and they just want to get to their destination. By promoting the bridge more, he hopes traf c to the south end of Avalon and to the bridge itself will increase. That, in turn, could spell increased business for the rms that ank the roadway. He said hes not sure when the idea will actually gain momentum. He presented the concept to county commissioners on April 9. At the time, county leaders agreed that the idea should get off the ground. (We) have everything to gain and nothing to lose, Woods said.History of the Garcon Point BridgeThe 3.5-mile-long bridge was completed in 1999 because of efforts by former Florida House Speaker Bolley Bo Johnson, D-Milton. Log-jammed in environmental issues, the span took more than a decade to come to fruition. The bridge originally was named Bos Bridge in recognition of Johnsons push to get the project completed. One of the bridges stated purposes was to make a more convenient route for motorists traveling on I-10 who wanted a faster route to Gulf Breeze. It was pushed to unite both north and south Santa Rosa. In 2000, the Santa Rosa Bay Bridge Authority asked for a $500,000 loan from Florida to help pay for the bridge. That request later was denied. The bridge was funded through a $95 million nongovernmental bond sale. The bond required that the payment be tied to a toll schedule. Since 2002, the bridge has failed to make its twice-annual payments.

You see your rst sign after exit 26, and the sign says miles Avalon Blvd. or Pensacola 17 miles. You have no clues from the sign that you can exit and (quickly get to your destination.)

My friends say I should rent out my backyard to weddings, Muller said. Muller is a Pensacola resident who made her way to Milton on Saturday to buy more plants for her yard, which is getting a lot of green thumbs-up from neighbors and family. Muller said she couldnt count on one hand how many times she had been to the Emerald Coast Flower and Garden Festival at the Pensacola State College campus, but said she comes every year, rain or shine. Its therapy to me, Muller said. Mullers backyard is a retreat. She lives just over Escambia Bay in Pensacola. My husband always says Im going to die with a hose in my hand, Muller laughed. Its my retreat away from everything. Her retreat looks more like a vacation spot. A chandelier hangs above an iron table where she says she plays tea party with her grandchildren. I had a tea party out there with them. One is 9 and the other is 12, Muller said. They love coming over. And while Muller was sharing the story of her dream backyard, there were others at the festival who were really showing their green thumb. Just ask Milton resident Joyce Kimmons. She may live off of Avalon Boulevard, but she doesnt let the construction get to her garden. Kimmons came to the plant sale on Friday looking for some therapy. The nurse has a hospital bed in her yard that she is planning on constructing a raised ower bed in. Next to the bed, a commode, and of course, a bed pan, all full of plants. I wanted to get enough owers to make the bed look like it had a quilt on it, Kimmons said. Ive been thinking about turning this hospital bed into a ower bed now for 20 years, Kimmons said. Thanks to some vendors at the 15th annual Emerald Coast Flower and Garden Festival, Kimmons dream may nally become a reality. Kimmons carried around a digital camera full of photos of what she wants her dream hospital room to look like. Everything I bought here last year did so well, Kimmons said. I look forward to it every year. Everyone is so helpful and so friendly. For others like Tammy Simmons of Milton, green vegetables were on the top of her list. Simmons said she was at the festival to scoop up some herbs and vegetables for her garden. Im just here for herbs and vegetables, Simmons said. I just like to grow my own vegetables.Green with envyPlant sale caters to garden enthusiasts Hundreds ocked to the annual garden sale at Pensacola State College campus in Milton on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

The event, which is now running twice a year, has vendors and buyers flocking far and wide, especially to the Milton, Pace areas. There definitely is a lot more going on this year, said Cathy Hilliard, who came from Baker to go browsing. We went last year and made the drive all the way from Crestview to Pace. Hilliard said she and her husband like flea markets and yard sales, but the Fleas across Florida is an event they especially look forward to. You dont really come to these things looking for something specific, Hilliard said. We kind of browse and look at junk. Another persons junk is another ones treasure. Hilliard said she was going to continue to make the trek up and down the flea market route twice a year to scoop up hard finds and bargains as much as she possibly could. We were able to go to the worlds longest yard sale, Hilliard said. Im hoping one day, this event can live up to that. Other bargain hunters traveled from Crestview to the Pea Ridge Flea Market to browse for treasure. We just like to look around, said Joyce Bowman. You cant come to a flea market and have something you want in mind. You just kind of find your treasure. And that treasure was loaded on the dozens of tables that lined Highway 90 through Pace and Milton over the weekend. We dont do this very often, but I heard of the Fleas Across Florida and had to go, Bowman said. Some finds, like the one Kim Grannon of Pensacola scooped up on her way into Milton, were one of a kind. I love collecting things that I know you cant find just anywhere, Grannon said. Grannon scooped up a typewriter for $5 and a handful of old records. I still collect these old things, she said holding up about 10 records. And theyre really hard to find, which is why I like going to these type of events.MATHEW PELLEGRINO | Press Gazette Flea market goers check out the unique nds at the Fleas Across Florida.ONEONE MANANS TRA TRASHH ...

Wednesday April 18, 2012 FREE EDITION TAKE ONE BANGKOK (AP) A oating mosque and golf course for the submerging Maldives islands. Amphibious homes in the Netherlands lifted to safety as waters surge beneath them. A hospital perched on 400 stilts to protect patients from Thailands devastating oods and the encroaching sea. Around the world, architects and city planners are exploring ways mankind and water might be able to coexist as oceans rise and other phenomenon induced by climate change, including extreme, erratic oods, threaten landrooted living. With the Dutch at the helm, projects in the cutting-edge eld of aqua-architecture are already in place, including a maritime housing estate, oating prison and greenhouses in the Netherlands. An increasing number are coming on stream, and though earlier blueprints appeared to be the stuff of science ction, advocates say leaps of imagination are still needed given the magnitude of the danger. The focus on oating solutions has grown enormously. It has shifted from freak architecture to more sustainable, exible alternatives, said Dutch architect Koen Olthuis, citing growing support by governments and interest among private investors in Asia and Russia. We will have to live with a more watery environment. There is no choice, said Danai Thaitakoo, a Thai landscape architect whose own Bangkok house was swamped last year as the country suffered its worst oods of modern times. The Thai capital is also among the mega coastal cities projected by the end of this century to lie totally or partially under water as global warming boosts sea levels, according to the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. Others include Tokyo, London, Jakarta, Sydney and Shanghai, an apocalyptic prospect of mass migrations and economic crises. Though in earlier decades architects and planners, particularly Japanese and Americans, dreamed of entire marine cities housing millions, most today are proposing a mix of defending communities with barriers and building on water using oating platforms, raised or amphibious structures and solutions still being devised. Climate change will require a radical shift within design practice from the solid-state view of landscape urbanism to the more dynamic, liquid-state view of waterscape urbanism, says Danai, who is involved in several projects based on this principle. Instead of embodying permanence, solidity and longevity, liquid perception will emphasize change, adaptation. In a study for low-lying New York, Olthuis said he envisioned Manhattan ringed by a sea wall with outlying boroughs allowing water to enter and adapting. The worlds Londons and Bangkoks, he said, might become hydro-cities, their historic hearts and concentrated core development waterproofed and other areas going with the ow. The Netherlands, a third of which lies below sea level, has been managing water since the Middle Ages and is thus a pioneer in the eld. It has exported its expertise to Indonesia, China, Thailand, Dubai and the Republic of the Maldives, an Indian Ocean archipelago that with a maximum elevation of about 8 feet is the worlds lowest country. The sea-battered city of New Orleans has also sought advice from Olthuiss Waterstudio. In the Maldives, Waterstudio has designed a network of oating islands, the rst to be put in place next year, to accommodate hotels, a convention center, yacht club and villas. The islands, secured by steel cables, are made up of pontoons with a foam core encased in concrete that can be joined together like Lego blocks. An 18-hole golf course also will be set on such platforms, each with two to three holes, connected by underwater tunnels. The $500 million project, paid for by the Maldivian government and private investors, is slated for completion in 2015. A oating mosque, originally destined for Dubai before an economic downturn hit, is also part of the master plan, Olthuis said. Following the principles of water will always nd its way and collaborating with nature, the Dutch have reversed some of their earlier strategy of tightly defending their land with dikes by allowing the sea to penetrate some areas on which housing has been constructed. One pioneering effort was the placement of amphibious and oating homes on the River Maas in 2005. All survived major 2011 oods that forced the evacuation of villages along rain-swollen rivers.

A2 | Santa Rosa Free Press Wednesday, April 18, 2012 AQUA from page A1Construction recently began on the Olthuis-designed New Water estate, 600 homes and a luxury apartment complex on land purposely inundated. Interest in water-based living and work space has accelerated over the past decade, he said, and Waterstudios drawing boards are stacked with plans for local and international projects. Typical amphibious houses, like the two-story ones on the Maas, consist of a structure that slides into a steel framework over a hollow foundation which, like the hull of a ship, buoys up the building when water enters. The Maas houses sell from $310,000, about 25 percent more than equivalent homes, in part because the cost of connecting them to utilities and drainage. But Olthuis said such linkages are simple and present no inconvenience to owners. Just proven technology of plug-and-play systems. All tested and used for years in Holland, he said. The only time you will see a difference between a oating house and the traditional one is during oods, when your house rises above the water and your neighbors stays put, Olthuis said. Along similar lines will be Britains rst amphibious house, recently granted planning permission along the banks of the Thames River in Buckinghamshire. The 2,421square-foot home will be able to rise to 8.2 feet in the event of ooding. Thai architect Chutayaves Sinthuphan, who will be unveiling a pilot amphibious house for the Thai government in September, said interest in such projects has grown since last years oods, which killed more than 600 people and affected more than a fth of the countrys 64 million people. We have had proposals out for some time, but nobody paid much attention to them until the oods came, he said. His Site-Speci c Company already has built such houses for private clients, using modern techniques and materials, but like other architects in Asia, looking to a past when communities adapted well to annual monsoon season inundations. They point to a riverside village in the southern province of Surat Thani, where everyone lived on homes atop bamboo rafts until all but three families moved on land. Those three homes were the only ones that survived last years oods. In the mid-19th century, almost all of Bangkok lived on houses built atop stilts or rafts. Since then, most canals have been paved over and the stilt houses replaced by a concrete urbanscape that holds back water instead of allowing it to ow through. Architect Prisdha Jumsai has borrowed from traditional methods to design Thailands rst hospital for the aged. Work has begun on the 300-bed hospital over a permanently ooded area near Bangkok that is also subject to tides from the nearby Gulf of Thailand. Concrete stilts will raise its rst oor about 13 feet above average water levels. We hope this will inuence people not to just ll in land but to build on water. I think it will open up new ideas for Thais who can look to traditional architecture and make it more up-to-date in design, Prisdha said. But this still appears to be a minority view. Most Thais look to Western, land-based models, and most architects still dont talk about environmental concerns. They talk about how a house will look and make you feel good, Danai said. But this will have to change. Its about survival. APA boat sails past amphibious homes on the River Maas in Maasbommel, Netherlands. The Netherlands, a third of which lies below sea level, has been managing water since the Middle Ages and has emerged as a pioneer in the eld. YOKOSUKA, Japan (AP) To the worlds military leaders, the debate over climate change is long over. They are preparing for a new kind of Cold War in the Arctic, anticipating that rising temperatures there will open up a treasure trove of resources, long-dreamed-of sea lanes and a slew of potential con icts. By Arctic standards, the region already is buzzing with military activity, and experts believe that will increase signi cantly in the years ahead. Last month, Norway wrapped up one of the largest Arctic maneuvers ever, Exercise Cold Response, with 16,300 troops from 14 countries training on the ice for everything from high intensity warfare to terror threats. Attesting to the harsh conditions, ve Norwegian troops were killed when their C-130 Hercules aircraft crashed near the summit of Kebnekaise, Swedens highest mountain. The U.S., Canada and Denmark held major exercises two months ago, and in an unprecedented move, the military chiefs of the eight main Arctic powers Canada, the U.S., Russia, Iceland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland gathered at a Canadian military base recently to speci cally discuss regional security issues. None of this means a shooting war is likely at the North Pole any time soon. But as the number of workers and ships increases in the High North to exploit oil and gas reserves, so will the need for policing, border patrols and if push comes to shove military muscle to enforce rival claims. The U.S. Geological Survey estimates 13 percent of the worlds undiscovered oil and 30 percent of its untapped natural gas is in the Arctic. Shipping lanes could be regularly open across the Arctic by 2030 as rising temperatures continue to melt the sea ice, according to a National Research Council analysis commissioned by the U.S. Navy last year. What countries should do about climate change remains a heated political debate. But that has not stopped northlooking militaries from moving ahead with strategies that assume current trends will continue. Russia, Canada and the United States have the biggest stakes in the Arctic. With its military budget stretched thin by Iraq, Afghanistan and more pressing issues elsewhere, the United States has been something of a reluctant northern power, though its nuclear-powered submarine eet, which can navigate for months underwater and below the ice cap, remains second to none. Russia, one-third of which lies within the Arctic Circle, has been the most aggressive in establishing itself as the emerging regions superpower. Rob Huebert, an associate political science professor at the University of Calgary in Canada, said Russia has recovered enough from its economic troubles of the 1990s to signi cantly rebuild its Arctic military capabilities, which were a key to the overall Cold War strategy of the Soviet Union, and has increased its bomber patrols and submarine activity. He said that has led other Arctic countries Norway, Denmark and Canada to resume regional military exercises they had abandoned or cut back on after the Soviet collapse. Even non-Arctic nations such as France have expressed interest in deploying their militaries to the Arctic. We have an entire ocean region that had previously been closed to the world now opening up, Huebert said. There are numerous factors now coming together that are mutually reinforcing themselves, causing a buildup of military capabilities in the region. This is only going to increase as time goes on. Noting that the Arctic is warming twice as fast as the rest of the globe, the U.S. Navy in 2009 announced a beefed-up Arctic Roadmap by its own task force on climate change that called for a three-stage strategy to increase readiness, build cooperative relations with Arctic nations and identify areas of potential con ict. We want to maintain our edge up there, said Cmdr. Ian Johnson, the captain of the USS Connecticut, one of the U.S. Navys most Arctic-capable nuclear submarines, which was deployed to the North Pole last year. Our interest in the Arctic has never really waned. It remains very important. But the U.S. remains illequipped for large-scale Arctic missions, according to a simulation conducted by the U.S. Naval War College. A summary released last month found the Navy is inadequately prepared to conduct sustained maritime operations in the Arctic because it lacks ships able to operate in or near Arctic ice, support facilities and adequate communications. The ndings indicate the Navy is entering a new realm in the Arctic, said Walter Berbrick, a War College professor who participated in the simulation. Instead of other nations relying on the U.S. Navy for capabilities and resources, sustained operations in the Arctic region will require the Navy to rely on other nations for capabilities and resources. He added that although the U.S. nuclear submarine eet is a major asset, the Navy has severe gaps elsewhere it doesnt have any icebreakers, for example. The only one in operation belongs to the Coast Guard. The U.S. is mulling whether to add more. Acknowledging the need to keep apace in the Arctic, the United States is pouring funds into guring out what climate change will bring and has been working closely with the scienti c community to calibrate its response. The most immediate challenge might not be war both military and commercial assets are sparse enough to give all countries elbow room for a while but whether militaries can respond to a disaster. Heather Conley, director of the Europe program at the London-based Center for Strategic and International Studies, said militaries probably will have to rescue their own citizens in the Arctic before any confrontations arise there. Catastrophic events, like a cruise ship suddenly sinking or an environmental accident related to the regions oil and gas exploration, would have a profound impact in the Arctic, she said. The risk is not militarization; it is the lack of capabilities while economic development and human activity dramatically increases that is the real risk.

Santa Rosa Free Press| A3Wednesday, April 18, 2012NEW YORK (AP) Americans were laughing at Hyundais cars when John Krafcik joined the company eight years ago. The cars were ugly and often broke down. The only reason to buy one was because it was cheap. Jay Leno once joked that you could double a Hyundais value by lling it up with gas. No ones laughing now. The Korean automakers quality has improved, and its among the leaders in fuel efciency and styling. Sales are up more than 60 percent since 2008, the year Krafcik became CEO of American operations. Hyundais Elantra compacts and Sonata midsize sedans are in such demand that few discounts are offered. And although the companys U.S. sales are just a fraction of General Motors or Fords, theyre growing so quickly that Hyundai is feared by every other carmaker. Hyundai already had started to change before Krafcik arrived, offering a 10-year, 100,000 mile warranty with its cars. But the transformation from joke to juggernaut accelerated under his watch. Krafcik, 50, is a Stanfordtrained engineer and manufacturing expert. He began his career as a manufacturing engineer at a General Motors-Toyota joint venture factory set up so GM could learn how Toyota made cars. While working for the venture in the early 1980s, he saw the gap in standards between Japanese and American plants. He has focused on quality ever since. Despite Hyundais turnaround, Krafcik still worries about quality. It only takes one small mistake with a critical part in a safety-related system to derail all of the good work that weve done, he said. Krafcik recently spoke with The Associated Press in New York. He talked about his management style, cup holders and the success of his company, which has its American headquarters in Costa Mesa, Calif. Here are excerpts, edited for clarity and style: Q: Your company has made a remarkable turnaround since the early 1990s when it sold inexpensive cars that fell apart. How did you make the transformation? A: First you had to build that foundation of quality and consumer trust. By the time we got to the late s, we knew that our quality was good. We knew our reputation was horrible. And the Americas Best Warranty, that 10-year, 100,000-mile powertrain warranty, ended up being huge. We were able to take ourselves from about 90,000 units (cars and trucks) per year at the absolute pits of our sales this was in the late 90s to 300,000 and 400,000 within four or ve years. Q: That was a bet-thecompany move? A: It was an absolute betthe-company move. If we had gotten that one wrong, then the company would have failed. And rather quickly, too, as the warranty expense and exposure are signicant when youre taking a bath that big. Q: Hyundai has pushed the envelope in its car designs, and other companies are just now catching up with the Elantra and Sonata. How did you pull that off? A: It just takes courage and a willingness to take risks. So with Sonata, the conventional orthodoxy in the industry was midsize cars should be styled conservatively. This is typical market research talking. We know this because we talk to our midsize car buyers all the time. Heres what they say: Safety. Quality. I want a good value and a fair price. And about number seven or eight on the pecking order is design. From that mentality has come the point of view that midsize cars should look like (Toyota) Camrys and (Honda) Accords and (Chevrolet) Malibus. Q: Why would you take a risk on design when it was conventional wisdom not to? A: Products starting with the 05 Tucson and the 06 Sonata were designed in a safe and conservative manner. It didnt move the needle in terms of sales. You go through that and you nally see the pattern. You cant just accept safe. So now when we do our research, we categorize people before they come (in) as either conservative or progressive in their design thought. And we can then weight the results. It gives more weight to what we call design progressives. Q: What else happens in your market research? A: Well send a couple of product planners and market researchers out with consumers and just literally spend a day or two with them, looking at their cars. Seeing how they live their lives around their cars. When they go to Costco, where do they put those big, huge things of toilet paper? It gives us insights. Were trying to nd what we call unmet needs. Q: What are Americans looking for in cars now? A: Fuel economy is denitely on their mind. Its huge. As fuel prices go up, interest in the compact car segment goes up. So compact cars now are selling very, very well. Fuel-efcient cars are selling very, very well. Were seeing more discretionary car purchases now. More car purchases that arent driven specically because my car is old or my car is fuel-inefcient. Q: Whats something that has surprised you about how people use their cars? A : The car as personal living space. Its amazing how much stuff people carry around. Finding room for peoples stuff is one of our priority focal points. Let me give you a great example. Cup holders and bottle holders. This is a great success for Hyundai, and it took some time to convince the engineers that this is what we needed to do (because) cup holders cost money. If youre going to do them right, they have little gripper ngers and you have to make more expensive molds and stuff. Engineers never understand why a driver would need two cup holders and the front seat passenger would also need two cup holders. Q: What could derail your sales growth? A: It only takes one small mistake with a critical part in a safety-related system to derail all of the good work that weve done. So were being so careful and cautious, putting in quality operating systems and ensuring that everything is working with them. We need to get to this point of tier-one quality in everything we do. But were not there yet. Q: What in Detroits corporate cultures caused them to get into trouble, and what did you learn from being there? A: Hyundais culture is something refreshing. This idea that bold targets drive great things. (It) just stretches your boundaries, your mind and your team in ways that you wouldnt otherwise have stretched and achieved. Working at GM, Toyota, and Ford, the approach was more focused on, Lets set targets that were fairly condent of being able to get to. Thats OK, but the outlook is decidedly less optimistic in a company like that. Q: Is the auto industry becoming cool to work for again? A: I would say so. Theres no industry cooler, no industry more complicated and more important to industrial economies. Its always been a sore point for me that the industry has had a bit of a black eye. That people would think of us as not being quick on our feet, and not being responsive to consumer needs. And maybe, honestly, some of that has been true. But what weve been through in the last couple of years has gotten rid of a lot of old bad habits. I see the industry now stronger, more vibrant than its ever been. I do see us recruiting a lot of really smart people. Q: Who are your mentors? A: Maybe the most inuential guy was a fellow named Yoshimitsu Ogihara. He was a Toyota guy. He would teach like this: He would say OK, John-san. I want to send you to Oklahoma City GM plant. You go there. Make one-page, Toyota-style report. And come back. And Id say, OK, Ogihara-san. What do you want me to look for? You will see. So I go there. It was this big place. Huge piles of inventory in cardboard boxes. People sleeping in those cardboard boxes. Massive parking lots lled with cars with parts missing. And the windshield wiper in the up position, which I later learned meant this car needed to be repaired. Every car in that huge lot, thousands of them, had their windshield wiper up. I remember writing this onepage report, just kind of detailing what I saw. I said, What do you think? He said, OK. Now I need to send you to Toyota City (the Corolla factory). It was amazing. You could see from one end of the plant to the other. Every bit of oor space had a visual indication of what it was for. The workers were working, but not crazy hard. No one was sleeping. I came back and wrote this one-page report. This was 1984, and no one really knew at the time that there was this big, huge difference between the way one company built cars and another company built cars. And I was a 23year-old kid, and I suddenly knew. So I worked there another couple years under Ogihara-san. He taught me so much but never through saying it. SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Strange secrets hide in numbers. For instance, an orange used car is least likely to be a lemon. This particular unexpected nding came to light courtesy of a data jockey who goes by the Internet alias SirGuessalot, who in fact wasnt guessing at all. Instead, he and his partner, PlanetThanet, relied on the hard math skills that make them top contenders in a sport tailor-made for the 21st century: competitive number-crunching. The used car defect prediction contest is one of dozens hosted by San Francisco online startup Kaggle, whose creators believe they can tap the global geek populations instinct for oneupmanship to mine better answers faster from the worlds ever-rising mountain of data. Competitions bring together a wide variety of people into a wide variety of problems, said Jeremy Howard, who became Kaggles president and chief scientist after winning multiple competitions himself. You get people looking at stuff theyd never look at otherwise. Though the used car contest was fun, Kaggle has its eye on weightier scientic problems. In one contest, an English major who trained himself in data science built a model for predicting the progress of HIV infections in individual patients. In another, a scientist who studies glaciers for a living won a NASA-backed Kaggle competition to measure the shapes of galaxies by mapping the universes dark matter. The data problems that need solving are so important that those who nd the solutions should be paid like professional athletes, said Kaggle founder Anthony Goldbloom. By turning data-mining into a crowdsourced contest, he hopes hes created a way to make that happen. Already one of Kaggles contests offers a multimillion dollar prize. We want to see the best data scientists earning more than Tiger Woods, said Goldbloom, who started the company in his native Australia and recently came to San Franciscos South of Market startup haven. The job market for mathematicians and statisticians has become hot as the sheer volume of data generated by ever faster, cheaper computing resources explodes. Data storage has become so inexpensive that a 2011 McKinsey and Co. report estimated a disk drive capable of storing all the worlds music would cost about $600. Walmart stores 10 times more data on customer transactions and other parts of its operation than is contained in the entire Library of Congress, according to the same report. Analyzing the so-called big data deluge has become a key task for businesses in an effort to divine everything from which ads online customers will click to how much inventory they need to maintain. Political candidates analyze data to predict voting patterns. Dating websites try to predict ideal mates. Kaggle competitions focus on creating and testing formulas that can be used to make predictions based on the contents of giant datasets. The more accurate the formula, the better the chances it will accurately provide answers to complex questions, such as the orange used car being the least likely to break down. Goldbloom argues that no matter how many data scientists companies hire, relying on in-house data talent means companies cant know if theyre getting the best solution. In a Kaggle contest, competitors nd out as soon as they submit their solutions how they stack up against fellow contestants. They can keep trying for the duration of the typically threemonth contests, which are highlighted on the company website. As the rst entries come in, the accuracy of competing models improves by leaps, Goldbloom said. As the contests progress, the improvement curve attens out. Goldbloom and Howard believe that shows the competitive approach pushes data scientists toward the best solutions within human reach. Crowdsourcing allows you to squeeze data dry, Goldbloom said. Not all competitions are open to all comers, however. About 33,000 contestants have taken part in Kaggles public competitions, where prize money tends to top out at around $10,000. Winners can get invited to participate in elite private contests, which might include access to sensitive private data sets. Kaggles business model depends on deep-pocketed contest sponsors like banks seeking to outdo each other with more lucrative prize purses to attract the best competitors, who themselves in theory could then make their livings off Kaggle competitions alone. The biggest prize by far open to the public is $3 million offered by the California-based Heritage Provider Network medical group to the data scientist best able to use hospital admission records to predict the proles of people most likely to end up in the hospital. The next-biggest purse is $100,000 in prizes put up by the Hewlett Foundation for algorithms that can automatically grade student essays. In its grandest vision of itself, the 11-person company backed by PayPal cofounder Max Levchin will have tens of thousands of competitions running simultaneously. Guilds of data gurus will band together to unleash software that enters competitions automatically. Kaggle becomes not just a way to push humans to perform at their best but to make machines themselves smarter as code-based contestants battle and learn from their mistakes. In this way, Howard said, data competitions become steps along the development of articial intelligence systems such as selfdriving cars. As for why orange used cars are most likely to be in good shape, the numbers did not hold the answer. One notion was that such a ashy color would only attract car fanatics who would be more likely to take care of their vehicles. That didnt pan out, however, since the least well-kept used cars turned out to be purple. APKaggle president and chief scientist Jeremy Howard poses with an orange Volkswagen in Mountain View, Calif.
