The upgrade was brought about after the death of Nubia Barahona, a 10-yearold South Florida girl, in 2011. The Barahona Investigative Panel discovered after the incident multiple calls had been made to the center about Nubias situation, but because of the old system. some information was incomplete or inaccurate and, South Florida investigators say they had to do their own research. Work on Avalon Boulevard continues By OBIE CRAIN 626-9200 | @srpressgazette ocrain@srpressgazette.com Motorists using U.S. 90 East can breath a sigh of relief. There will be no more lane closures and one-way traf c funneling resulting in long waits. Resurfacing the highway from a few yards east of the Local Yokel to the east end of the old brick road has ended, according to the Florida Department of Transportation. Some areas of the highway were widened, and new turn lanes were added for safety. The ve-mile stretch of road construction added a westbound left and an eastbound turn lane off Persimmon Hollow Road. An extended right turn lane at Industrial Boulevard also was extended. The 11-month, $1.8 million project also included some sidewalk construction and American with Disabilities Act improvements. The usual drainage and safety features were part of the overall project, as were new, visible pavement markings, U.S. 90 East serves a heavily populated area including the Santa Rosa County Industrial Park, the alternate travel route to the south end of the county on Highway 87, and residents east to the Okaloosa County boundary. A midweek update from FDOT indicates the following: U.S. 90 to Commerce Road: Crews from Panhandle Grading & Paving Company have begun laying the nal layer of asphalt. Drivers can expect intermittent lane restrictions from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Estimated completion: winter 2013. North of CSX Railroad Bridge to south of Commerce Road: No work took place this week on this section of Avalon Boulevard. Estimated completion: winter 2013. South of Moors Lodge to CSX Railroad: Crews continue to work on roadway construction including milling of the existing roadway, drainage, embankment and placement of sod. No planned lane closures at this time. Estimated completion: fall 2013. Interstate 10 to south of the Moors Lodge: Crews continue construction activities for the future southbound roadway between Del Monte and San Juan streets. Bridge construction continues for the future two lane northbound roadway. Sidewalk, curb and gutter construction between San Juan Street and San Pablo Streets will continue. Erosion control devices continue to be maintained throughout the project. Estimated completion: fall 2013. Construction activities are weather-dependent and may be delayed or rescheduled in the event of inclement weather. Obituaries ........................................

From our small community to theirs By SARA BERRES 630-247-9821 sberres@srpressgazette.com With green and white ribbons pinned to their shirts and candles in hand, about 200 community members stood on the Pace Athletic and Recreation Associations football eld Wednesday night singing Silent Night and bowing their heads in prayer. Although there was a Christmas tree lit on the eld, the gathering wasnt to celebrate the holidays. The group was taking a moment from their busy lives to remember victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings. We can never imagine the hurt and pain they feel, Pastor Wayne Blocker of Community of Christ Church of Milton said. (But we can) continue to pray Gods peace surrounds them now and the days to follow. I know they feel our love from this small community to their small community, he said.

Local Santa Rosas Press Gazette| A3 Saturday, December 22, 2012 Speak OUT Sunday, 6:40 a.m. Yes, Im calling in reference to the public transportation. Whether people realize it or not, these folks need this public assistance because theres people that use this transportation for dialysis, to get groceries. Our elderly have no way to get around. They dont thave vehicles, theyre not allowed to drive no more, nor do they need to drive. These covered buildings and spending money on turtle farms and this, that and the other, you know, they need to think about the senior citizens of Florida because thats what makes Florida that is Florida. Lets think about our senior citizens that made this place what it is and take care of them and get them to their doctors appointments and take care of them or there is going to be no more Santa Rosa County. So lets take care of the folks that raised us and taught us right from wrong. OK? Thank you. Tuesday, 7:10 p.m. Yes, this is Maria. Right now Im watching Charlie Brown Christmas. Its relaxing to stay away from the sad news for a little while. I think watching Charlie Brown in memory of all these children is very nice. Its a very nice cartoon. I know Im an old lady, but I still enjoy Charlie Brown at home with all my grandchildren. They think its funny. If I dont call them, they call to remind me. Thank you to Speak Out, and Merry Christmas, a safe Christmas and a Happy New Year. See you next year! Good night. Tuesday, 9:33 p.m. Hello, this is Chet. This time of year, we always see Gretchen Carlson on FOX News talking about theres a war on Christmas and a war on Christianity. Well, I wouldnt say that some atheist nut job some place in the county that wants to get rid of a nativity scene is a war. If you really want to see a war on religion, if you went back to Inquisition, that would be a war on religion right there. But anyway, the real war on Christmas would come from the Bible verse of Jeremiah, 10: 3-4. Therein lies the problem, and theres the war on Christmas there. Thank you. Tuesday, 9:48 p.m. Yes, this is Chet again. I just wanted to add something to my message. I read E.R. McCormicks section about the Christmas parade, and hes absolutely right. Its the work of Satan. It is. Its all Satan. Wednesday, 9:33 a.m. Hi, this is Lee. I dont mean to sound insensitive about any of the shootings thats happened over the past couple of months, especially Fridays shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary, but there does come a time when we need to quit discussing it as much as in the paper, on Facebook, the news media. Let the families mourn. It was a very tragic, tragic thing that happened to them. I pray about them every single day; I think about them every single day. But there does come a time when parents and famlies need to mourn them and not have to look on the computer, TV, Facebook and see pictures of their children. And also, with the parents that are now talking about home-schooling their children, think what youre thinking about here. Youre taking you children out of an environment that theyre used to. Social skills will go down. Just make sure your child knows what is expected of them if something like that was to happen to them. Schools are becoming more protective, so they are going to become more safer. Thank you. Wednesday, 3:16 p.m. Yeah, this is Emily, and I was calling to comment on Tims comment on the Chumuckla Redneck Parade. I agree that it should be moved back to Sunday, but what I want to know is why was everything jumbled up into one weekend when we still had two weekends left to go? I just dont understand that. Its like we have everything on one weekend and then nothing for the next two. I dont understand. Thanks. Wednesday, 8:51 p.m. Yeah, this is Billy. Id lke to say that I like the new app that the sheriffs of ce has got for your phone. And I always like the Jail View site they got on the Internet. But my problem is the people arent putting the offenses in that people are arrested for. I think its nice that we can get to that information, I just would like to know what the peoples offenses are, and I wish the people that are entering the info would do a better job. Thank you. Thursday, 9:11 a.m. Yeah, I was reading the paper from across the county there, other county over there, the mullet wrapper, and I see that the ri e company that made the ri es, the company sellin it is getting out of the business. Lets look at the kid and what he did. I mean, I feel sorry for his victims at the school, but what did this kid do? He read books; he played video games. What video games did he play? Was he killing people in these video games? We have gone with a society that puts video games of killing people, running over people, all kinds of stuff, in the hands of these youths. And then we say its the fault of the guns. No, its parents fault. We need to get back to our morals. Thank you. Its relaxing to stay away from the sad news for a little while. I think watching Charlie Brown in memory of all these children is very nice. Let the families mourn. It was a very tragic, tragic thing that happened to them. But there does come a time when parents and famlies need to mourn them and not have to look on the computer, TV, Facebook and see pictures of their children.

Local A4 | Santa Rosas Press Gazette Saturday, December 22, 2012 (The hotline) has had upgrades over the years as technology changes, but this is rst massive redesign We started from scratch, said Erin Gillespie, DCF spokeswoman. Improvements include new online abuse report ing technology and better gathering capabilities to help investigators assess the risk of a case early in the process. Report ing technology now will take hotline counselors through a series of ques tions while pulling infor mation from previous calls and law enforcement. It has been made more of an automated process, instead of rely ing on each counselor to ask the right questions, Gillespie said. A $7 million appropria tion from the Legislature funded the new statewide system and provided about 40 new call center jobs. The new system will affect local DCF ofces by providing more informa tion up front to investiga tors. The new system also will make sure efforts arent being duplicated by mistakes, such as differ ent spellings of a childs name. Before, if someone called the hotline and gave the name of a kid and someone called later and spelled the name using a different letter, two sepa rate investigators would be put on the case, Gil lespie said. If didnt hap pen constantly, but it did occur. Now, weve stream lined the process. Things like this will match up in the system, and we wont duplicate efforts. The new system is de signed to make it easier for law enforcement and school personnel by im proving the online report ing tool.

He was a native of Brewton, Ala., but had moved to Milton in 1971. He loved shing and was a crane operator for many years. Mr. Cain was a member of the Holiness faith. He was preceded in death by his mother, Jessie Cain; and granddaughter, April Hayes. Survivors include his wife, Janie Cain; children, Lewis Cain, Paul (Trecia) Cain and Barbara (Jerry) Dunsford; ve grandchildren; 11 greatgrandchildren; and sibling, Suzie Ard. Graveside funeral services were at 3 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 18, 2012, in the Bagdad Cemetery with Rev. Julie Schach ofciating. The family received friends at the Lewis Funeral Home Milton Chapel from 1 to 2 p.m. before services. Pallbearers were Levi Cain, Justin Cain, Josh Cain, Cody ONeal, Cliff Archer and Eddie Podgurski. Lonnie Cain Obituary HOTLINE from page A1 done, he said. Zdon said he has never organized anything like the vigil before, but he has found an overowing sup port from the community. Wal-Mart donated candles, Home Depot donated a Christmas tree and several friends and family helped spread the word about the event. As a father of four, bas ketball coach and Vice President of Football on the PARA Board of Direc tors, Zdon has many chil dren he holds close to his heart. I have four boys ages 17, 15, 9 and 7 and I coach basketball. This hit home, he said. Being a coach, theyre not just kids I teach, theyre like my own. Zdon said he wanted the community to get more out of the vigil. If someone needs help, they need to know they can nd it in the community. And we also need to look at other people, because not everyone will ask for help, he said. We need to realize its not just about us. Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., was the scene of the na tions second-deadliest shooting in U.S. history on Dec. 14 when a men tally disturbed 20-year-old opened re on small chil dren, killing 20 between the ages of 6 and 7. Ofcials say he killed six adults at the school, including the schools principal and guidance counselor and at least one teacher who protected her students by lying to the shooter. The mother of the shooter was found dead at her home. Some speculate that her plans to have her son com mitted to a mental health facility might have trig gered his anger and lead to the shootings. The unprecedented kill ing sparked a national de bate on gun control; a visit to the town by President Barrack Obama; a nation al period of mourning with ags at half-staff across the country; a Facebook page with 316,000 likes in less than a week (Sandy Hook Elementary School Massacre Memorial Page); and a nationwide sense of community in the loss of young, innocent lives. NEWTOWN from page A1 Sheriffs Ofce; and the Department of Juvenile Justice, Child Protection Team, ofcials deter mined Abbotts actions met the criteria. Parker said because Abbott was in a position of authority over the victim; the victim is under the age of 18; and the signicant injury to the victim, felony child abuse charges apply. He described the injuries to the victim in this case as, carpet burns, bruis ing around the eye and swelling around the face. He said initially, it was believed the victim had a fracture, but that later was determined not to be the case. Reports say the inju ries happened Aug. 9 at the facility. The incident was recorded on security cameras. According to the war rant obtained from the San ta Rosa County Sheriffs Ofce, Abbott allegedly is seen in two security cam era videos leading the vic tim with her arm secured. Investigators indicate the victim shows no signs of resisting Abbott. The victim is observed not pulling her arms away from the defendant; the victim is not attempting to strike the defendant in any manner and is compli ant throughout the entire event, according to the report. Abbott then is alleged to have stopped the vic tim, facing a wall, and is observed repositioning her grip on her arm: The defendants forearms are now wrapped around the victims arms at her elbows with the defendants hands clinched together and po sitioned into the middle of the victims back, the re port states. After (Abbott) repositions her grip she moved her stance closer to the victim from behind. According to investigator Larry Tynes report, the vic tim was about two feet from the cement cinder block wall when Abbott allegedly thrust herself toward the victim in a very forceful manner, using her upper and lower body strength, pushing the victim violently into the wall. The report stated the victims chest area and chin bounced off the wall. Seconds later the de fendant stops speaking to the victim and pulls the victim with great force and violently throws the victim to the oor while restrain ing the victims arms be hind their back. Abbott is alleged to have landed on top of the victims back with her full weight. The report indicated the victim weighs 148 pounds and that Abbotts observed size is much greater than the victims as depicted in the video. When investigators at tempted to speak to Ab bott, she said she was go ing to have a lawyer pres ent before she spoke. Abbott was charged with battery on Dec. 4 by SRCSO. A second investigation continues into the actions of the facilitys director, Carol Andrus, who is ac cused of grabbing the neck of a restrained client and throwing the 15-year-old to the ground. The DJJ re port indicates the teenager received lacerations to her face and ear that looked like it needed stitches. Citing concerns over safety and security at the facility, the DJJ has placed an admissions freeze on the Milton Girls Juvenile Residential Facility. No charges have been led against Andrus to date.

Local A6 | Santa Rosas Press Gazette Saturday, December 22, 2012 DCF: Stay calm and explain whats going on in terms they can understand Special to the Press Gazette TALLAHASSEE Children can start showing signs of trauma right away or months after a disastrous event. Just hearing about an event on the news or seeing a reaction from parents is enough to have an effect on kids. You might not have spoken to your kids over the weekend about the Sandy Hook Elemen tary School tragedy, but it is possible they heard something at school and might have ques tions for you about it. Jennifer Evans, a licensed mental health counselor and traumatologist at the Depart ment of Children and Families who specializes in compassion fatigue, offers these signs to look for in your children and ways you can comfort your child during this time. Be clear: Talking about trag edy and death can be very dif cult for anyone. Being clear and only answering what the child is asking will help them to under stand without getting into too much graphic detail. Try using dialogue like, When people die, their bodies stop working. Be available: Let your kids ask the questions. Start by asking them, What do you think hap pened? Allow them to guide the conversation where they need to go to help them cope. Stay calm: Children learn emotional reactions and coping through adults. The way adults react to events is often the way the child perceives and reacts to the event. It is OK to cry and show concern and emotion, and then to show appropriate ways to cope and heal. Try using dialogue like, It is OK to feel confused and hurt. Sometimes people cry to show how sad they are. This allows their body to feel better. Normalize their feelings: When a tragedy happens it can be con fusing, and often, kids are un certain of the emotions they are feeling. Use this opportunity to discuss emotions and the way kids are feeling and explain how you can cope. Try using dialogue like, Often people feel sad when something like this happens. It is hard to understand why someone would do something like this. Understand how children cope: You might see your child try to act out the traumatic event through their dolls or other toys. This can be scary for a parent to see, but kids will often replay the event as a way to cope. You can use this opportunity to discuss their play and their memory of the event. This is a great time to clarify and normalize their reac tion again. Try doing an activity to help provide closure for your child. Ask your child if they would like to say or do anything to help the families who have experi enced this tragedy. They might want to write a letter or a card to the school or the families to say they are sorry and offer words of hope and encouragement. Notice changes in behavior: Of ten, the effect of trauma on your body does not happen until weeks after the event. This is a normal process of coping. If your childs behavior dramati cally changes for an extended amount of time, consult a pro fessional. Common symptoms of trauma include sleeplessness, over/under eating, extended sadness for no immediate ex planation, extended traumatic play, lack of focus/concentration and nightmares. We are all keeping the victims in our thoughts and prayers. The national Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Admin istration provides more infor mation about coping strategies and how children and adults are affected by and react to tragedy. We encourage you to visit www. samhsa.gov/trauma for resourc es about how to help your friends and family during this time. Parents can help children cope after trauma

Local Santa Rosas Press Gazette| A7 Saturday, December 22, 2012 By LAUREN SAGE REINLIE 863-1111 | @laurenrnwfdn lreinlie@nwfdailynews.com As part of the Air Forces quest to nd more space to meet increasing training demands in Northwest Flor ida, it now will be allowed to conduct nonhazardous mis sions on additional stateowned land. The state Department of Environmental Protection agreed last week to allow the Air Force to set up com munications equipment on pockets of land across the region. The agreement is part of a recent effort to ease competition for range space on Eglin Air Force Bases reservation, which spans 460,000 acres. After the last base re alignment in 2005, which brought several new mis sions to Eglin and surround ing bases, ofcials began looking for public or private land nearby for nonhazard ous training. This will allow us to have a lot more exibility to use the range for what it was really designed for testing and shooting and all those things that come with hazardous activity, said Michael Penland, the Air Forces director of base operations. Before moving to his position at the Pentagon, Penland was in charge of operational support at Eg lin, where he began work ing on the project to nd nearby land for training. He has continued that effort in Washington, D.C. In October, the Air Force signed its rst agreement to use Florida Forest Service land. The state agreed to al low the military to use about 400,000 acres in the Black water River State Forest near Eglin and Tates Hell State Forest near Apala chicola, Penland said. He said the Air Force plans to sign a similar agreement with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva tion Commission in the near future. The agreements are one of a kind and could serve as models for similar arrange ments across the country. This is rst time weve actually tried to do some thing to this scale, especial ly in the Air Force, Penland said. The DEP agreement al lows the Air Force to set up mobile threat emitters, which are used for air train ing. Currently, the emitters are housed at Eglin, but they rarely are used because they must be spread over a large area, Penland said. Under the agreement signed with the Forest Ser vice, the military includ ing the Army 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne) at Eglin will be able to run small ground-training mis sions, and other groups will be able to land aircraft such as the CV-22, Penland said. It will offer some oppor tunities unavailable on the Eglin reservation and short en wait times for the space. No live ammunition will be red on state lands, of cials said. Penland said the state agencies and the Air Force have worked to make sure the training missions will not disrupt any endan gered species or restrict recreational activities. They searched for areas where the training would be com patible with what the land already is being used for. (The state) has been very forthcoming in helping us look for places we might be able to use, he said. Patrick Gillespie, a spokesman for DEP, said the agreement is the rst of its kind, but ts in with the agencys overall mission. Its been a priority of the DEP to purchase state land that buffers military installations and to work to support our armed forces, Gillespie said. He said the plan was pre sented at two public meet ings before it was approved. The details of how, when and where the land will be used will be hammered out over the next two months. Gov. Rick Scott praised the partnership in a news release issued last week. This agreement is an other step in making Florida the most military-friendly state in the nation, he said. Not only will this decision strengthen our nations se curity, but it will support our military communities that provide jobs for Florida families. Next week: How will this agreement affect Santa Rosa County? 9622316 wsre.org/downton By OBIE CRAIN Special to the Press Gazette ocrain@srpressgazette.com If you havent tuned in to your Santa Rosa County Division of Emergency Management lately, you might not be aware of some of its basic tools designed to protect citizens and property in emergency situations. Many people associate the Emergency Management Divi sion of county government with hurricanes. But hurricanes, which are pretty much conned to a sea sonal pattern, are far from the only disaster that can affect the community. Floods, re, industri al accidents, earthquakes and the like should never be dismissed or trivialized. In its dedication to addressing such calamities and to give as sistance to those affected, SRC DEM has developed technology that can help residents plan for, or emerge from, these types of disruptive occurrence. Major among the programs offered by the SRCDEM is the E-breaking News platform, email and text message notications. To use this tool, register on the countys website, www.santarosa. .gov/emergency/publicwarning. html. The instructions will tell you how to access the program. Disaster information is also available online at the countys website. The information there is updated regularly and can be relayed to you via emails. All you have to do is ask to be added to the list. You can do that by ac cessing joyt@santarosa..gov. Perhaps the most serviceable program SRCDEM offers is the Reverse 911, a high-speed tele phone system used to call homes and businesses in case of emer gencies. The program is so sensi tive it can call only sections of the county affected by a calamity. It relays a recorded message giving the receiver important informa tion about the disaster and rec ommends steps to take to protect life and property. The SRCDEM also has pre pared the Ofcial Santa Rosa County Disaster Prepared ness Guide available online. Its a 48-page publication that gives valuable information on what to do before, during and after a va riety of disaster scenarios. It is available on the web at the same site that gives you E-breaking News. Additionally, we highly rec ommend the purchase of a NOAA weather radio for all homes, busi nesses and rental properties, said Sheryl Bracewell, the direc tor of the countys emergency management. Its an inexpen sive tool, and it just might save a life! Florida to allow Air Force to train on more state land Division of Emergency Management offers online updates

Local Santa Rosas Press Gazette| A9 Saturday, December 22, 2012 Special to the Press Gazette Wood storks in the Southeastern United States no longer face immi nent danger of extinction The U.S. Fish and Wild life Service is proposing to upgrade the status of the U.S. breeding popula tion of wood storks from endangered to threatened under the Endangered Species Act. The proposal follows a comprehensive review, conducted by ser vice biologists, of the best available scientic and commercial information about the species status. The proposed reclas sication of the wood stork demonstrates that the Endangered Species Act works, said Dan Ashe, di rector for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. This is a good day for the wood stork, and a good day for conser vation. Thanks to great efforts from our conserva tion partners, the species is making real progress toward recovery. The wood stork is the only true species of stork nesting in the United States. Since its original ESA listing as endangered in 1984, the U.S. breed ing population has shown substantial improvement in the numbers of nesting pairs as a whole and the expansion of its breed ing range. The three-year averages during the past 10 years range from 7,086 to 8,996 nesting pairs, all above the 6,000 nesting pair benchmark average estab lished for reclassifying the species as threatened, but well below the ve-year average of 10,000 nesting pairs needed for delisting. Although some habi tat loss continues, current population data clearly indicate that the wood stork is beneting from the work of private land owners and several strong partnership efforts, said Cindy Dohner, the Ser vices Southeast regional director. The wood stork is expanding its breeding range using a wide vari ety of wetlands to forage, roost, and breed, including man-made and restored wetlands. The proposed reclassi cation would not change any conservation or pro tection measures for the wood stork under the ESA. Rather it would recognize the storks ongoing recov ery and the positive impact that collaborative con servation efforts over the last two decades have had on breeding populations. With a continuing trend, the species could become suitable for de-listing from the ESA. Therefore, addressing the threats associated with habitat loss, including the protec tion of natural wetlands through partnerships and the focused management of public lands, remains a conservation priority for the Service. When the Service origi nally listed the South eastern U.S. portion of the population, the wood storks range included Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and Alabama and breeding was primar ily in central and south Florida. Historically, the Florida Everglades and the Big Cypress National Preserve once supported large breeding colonies. Today its range includes portions of North Carolina and Mississippi with sig nicant nesting in Florida, Georgia and South Caro lina. Biologists believe man-made changes in the Everglades and Big Cy press ecosystems have contributed to the birds expanded breeding range. The Natural Resources Conservation Service Wet lands Reserve Program has restored more than 200,000 acres of wetlands in Florida and more than 115,000 acres in Alabama, Georgia and South Caro lina during the past 18 years. Thousands of acres of wetlands also are being protected on private lands to assist in habitat and wildlife protection through restoration in conjunction with establishing conser vation easements. Wetland losses are being avoided, minimized and mitigated through project consulta tions and the regulatory process. The wood stork has shown a fascinating ability to respond to changes in hydrology by broadening its breeding range beyond central Florida, the Ever glades, and Big Cypress ecosystems, said Dave Hankla, eld supervisor for the Services North Florida Ecological Ser vices Ofce in Jackson ville. However, this does not reduce the importance restoration of the storks historical breeding area has for recovery. Nor does it diminish the signicant role South Floridas eco systems play for wood storks and other wildlife. Large-scale restoration projects such as the Com prehensive Everglades Restoration Program, Kis simmee River Restoration Project and St. Johns Riv er Headwaters Restora tion Project are signicant conservation efforts that continue to greatly benet wood stork recovery. Flor ida nesting pairs totaled more than 5,000 in 2011. The announcement, which will publish in the Federal Register in coming days, also constitutes the services 12-month war ranted nding on a peti tion to reclassify the wood stork, which was submit ted by the Pacic Legal Foundation and Biological Research Associates, on behalf of the Florida Home Builders Association. To ensure its nal deci sion reects the best avail able information, the Ser vice is soliciting comments from the public, other concerned governmental agencies, Tribal govern ments, the scientic com munity, industry and any other interested parties. Anyone wishing to sub mit information regarding the wood stork through out its Southeast U.S. breeding range may do so via one of the following methods once the rule has published: Submit online at www. regulations.gov or mail to Public Comments Pro cessing, Attn: FWS-R4ES-2011-0020, Division of Policy and Directives Management, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, 4401 N.

According the EPA, the volume of household waste in the United States generally increases 25 percent between Thanksgiving and New Years day, approximately one million extra tons. With more recycling choices available in Santa Rosa County than ever before, you can make the holiday season the season of recycling. Citizens can recycle glass, metal, plastic containers, paper and cardboard with curbside collections by their residential garbage collection service, hauling the items to the Central Landll or Gulf Breeze and Jay transfer stations, or by taking items to one of the 19 recycling drop off sites located throughout the county. Our recycle contractor will be servicing the containers quickly and often, but usage will be extremely high after Christmas.

JoAnn Watson, Detroit city council member, once said, Our people in an overwhelming way supported the reelection of this president, and there ought to be a quid pro quo. In other words, President Barack Obama should send the nearly bankrupted city of Detroit millions in taxpayer bailout money. But theres a painful lesson to be learned from decades of political hustling and counsel by intellectuals and urban experts. In 1960, Detroits population was 1.6 million. Blacks were 29 percent, and whites were 70 percent. Today, Detroits population has fallen precipitously to 707,000, of which blacks are 84 percent and whites 8 percent. Much of the citys decline began with the election of Coleman Young, Detroits rst black mayor and mayor for ve terms, who engaged in political favoritism to blacks and tax policies against higher income mostly white people. Youngs successors, Dennis Archer and Kwame Kilpatrick, followed his Third World tyrant policies, but neither had his verbal vulgarity. Kilpatrick (2002-2008) went to jail and is on trial today on charges of corruption. Mayor David Bing is making an effort to revive Detroit. His problem is that hes not God. Policies that ran whites and other more af uent people out of Detroit might have been Youngs and his successors strategy. After all, why not get rid of people who arent going to vote for you anyway? The problem is that getting rid of these people left Detroit with a lower tax base, fewer jobs and fewer consumers. Fewer whites might be good for the careers of black politicians, but its not in the best interests of ordinary blacks. Blacks have political control of Detroit, but the relevant question is whether some control of something is better than 100 percent control of nothing. By most measures, Detroit is one of the nations most tragic cities, and its mostly self-imposed. Detroit topped Forbes magazines 2010 list of Americas Most Dangerous Cities. That year, there were 345 homicides, but thats going to be topped with this years 365 homicides so far. Most homicide victims in Detroit and elsewhere are black, and 95 percent of the time, their murderers are black. But far more important to black leaders and white liberals than blacks murdering blacks are charges of police misconduct and racial pro ling. Detroits predominantly black public schools are close to being the worst in the nation, perhaps with the exception of those of Washington, D.C. Only 4 percent of Detroits eighth-graders scored proficient or above on the most recent National Assessment of Education Progress test, sometimes called The Nations Report Card. Thirty-six percent scored basic, and 57 percent below basic. Below basic is when a student is unable to demonstrate even partial mastery of knowledge and skills fundamental for proficient work at their grade level. Basic indicates only partial mastery. Unbeknownst to most black parents is that most black students who manage to graduate from high school cannot read and compute any better than whites four years younger and still in junior high school. Heres a question for you: If we put a group of 100 students of any race having an eighthgrade level of proficiency and another group of 100 students of any race with a 12th-grade level of proficiency in college, is it reasonable to expect the first group to perform as well as the second? On top of that, is it reasonable to expect a student of any race to be able to make up 12 years of fraudulent K-12 education in the space of four or five years of college? Detroits social pathology is seen in other cities with large black populations such as Philadelphia, Newark, N.J, Baltimore, Md., and Chicago. These are cities where blacks have for years dominated the political machinery in the forms of mayors, police chiefs, superintendents of schools and city councilmen, plus theyve been Democrats. Its safe to conclude that the focus on political power doesnt do much for ordinary blacks. Walter E. Williams is a professor of economics at George Mason University. Page 12 www.srpressgazette.com Saturday, December 22, 2012 A Section O PINION 100 percent of nothing We all had several years of stories, novels and even Hollywood movies to prepare us for the end of time. And those who love to speak of doomsday wasted no time in latching on to the fact that the Mayans long count calendar had no dates beyond December 21, 2012. Surely, these mongers conjectured, this means the Mayans knew something and the world is about to end. It never seemed to cross anyones mind that the Mayans may have looked at the calendar, signed from their exhaustive effort and said, Hmm, 5,125 years of calculationsthats good enough for anyone and left it at that. We suppose its just more fun to prognosticate over Armageddon than to admit ignorance and move through life as through a dark forest. Humans, after all, have a long love affair with the end of the world: In 1910,many were certain the end was coming when the earth passed through the tail of Halleys comet. Of course, nothing happened, but that didnt stop the doomsdayers. Theyre always ready to leap from one failed forecast and latch onto the next. Some may recall Pat Robertson telling those watching his 700 Club in 1980 that he guaranteed a judgment on the world by the end of 1982. As the calendar rolled into 1983, nothing visible had happened. In 1997, a California group known as Heavens Gate was certain an alien spacecraft was coming marking the end of the world. Thirty-nine members of that group ended up killing themselves. Few people have not heard the name of Nostradamus. In 1999, the name was on many tongues as the public latched onto one of the writers quadtrains which promised a king of terror in the 7th month of 1999. While it wasnt being billed as the end of the world it was being put forth as a world of problems. The Y2K bug was expected to bring planes crashing from the sky a result of no maintenance and ruin nancial banking systems. Nothing happened. As if that werent enough, there was an attempt 12 months later to say 2001 would be the REAL Y2K bug. Nothing happened then, either. P.T. Barnum is often credited with saying theres a sucker born every minute. Were not sure if he was the real author of that phrase, but the words seem to ring true. Why is it that we, as a people, are so quick to believe end-oftime prophecies? If you really feel you need to live beneath the fear of end times, turn to Erich Von Daniken. In the 1960s, he wrote the book Chariots of the Gods. Daniken postulated the earth had, long ago been visited by aliens who had meddled with the DNA of this planets life to create humankind. He then linked that thought to the Mayan calendar saying the aliens would return in 2012. Quick to hedge his bets, though, Daniken says the Mayans calculations could be off by up to 25 years. So, the Mayan theory remains active for another quarter of a century. So, should we go to work Monday? Do we really have to pay our bills? After all, Dec. 21, 2013, is coming.

Local A14 | Santa Rosas Press Gazette Saturday, December 22, 2012 By OBIE CRAIN Special to Press Gazette ocrain@srpressgazette.com Santa Rosa County Commissioners recently voted to extend the sus pension of transportation or road impact fees for the fth year in a row. This waiver will extend the sus pension of the transporta tion through December of 2013. Any new construction, residential or commercial, which would normally be assessed a transporta tion impact fee during the building permit process in 2009 through 2013 will have impact fees waived. However, those paying installments will be re quired to make payments for 2010, 2011, and 2013. It is anticipated the Commissioners will re view and address the sus pension again in Novem ber 2013 for the following years. During a commissionmeeting workshop on Jan uary 29, 2009, the Commis sioners originally voted to suspend the collection of the transportation impact fees for the 2009 calen dar year as an incentive to stimulate new local construction projects. Considering the cur rent national downturn in the economy and high un employment, commission ers understand the need to create employment opportunities, including the construction industry. Commissioners hope the savings recognized from the suspension will act as an economic stimulus. An impact fee is a onetime charge to offset the cost of new or expanded infrastructure to accom modate a new develop ment. Impact fees are generally categorized by the project, and a county may one or multiple im pact fees. Examples can include impact fees for roads, wa ter, sewer, drainage, parks, libraries, re services, law enforcement services, and schools. When instated, the amount of impact fees collected changes each year as it is dependent on the number of building permits issued, In scalyear2007 and 2008, 623 road impact fees were processed and over $1.8 million were collected to help fund road proj ects within Santa Rosa County. Impact fees waived By O B IE CRAIN Special to the Press Gazette ocrain@srpressgazette.com Shopping online is one of the most conve nient ways to browse and buy these day but, buyer beware! Shoppers must be aware when us ing the convenience of the Internet to shop. The good side is shopping online can happen any time and anywhere, eliminating the challenges of crowd ed stores, thieves lurking about, and the frustration of not nding the right item. Shop ping from the kitchen table online is so much more comfortable than ghting crowds. Shopping online, however, has certain pitfalls to avoid. Know ing how and where to shop can of ten minimize the chance of scams. Shopping at well-established online businesses is practical and safer. Reading what others say about a business is helpful. Be particular about shop ping at stores outside the United States. While online re tailers in this country are regulated by U.S consumer laws, those out side the U, S. are not. There could be problems if a dispute arises, or if the buyer is not satised with the purchase. There are other tips to consider when shopping on line. Use credit cards if possible. This makes it eas ier to negotiate differences when it is necessary. If the credit card is compromised by loss or theft, you are only responsible for the first $30 in unauthorized charges with most companies. In many cases credit card companies will waive that. Debit cards do not offer this protection. Shop at secure sites that display see the lock icon, and be extra care ful not to be tricked into sharing per sonal information like a Social Secu rity number or other personal data. Watch checking accounts and other statements for buying activity that may be unfamiliar. Take partic ular care and examine them closely. Often, if the discrepancy is reported quickly, its more often that not, it can also be solved just as quickly. Whether shopping in area retail establishments or online, be careful and follow common sense scenarios. The holiday will be more safe and secure for the effort. Pros and cons of shopping online TALLAHASSEE Thousands of children in foster care will be going Home for the Holidays this month. Half of the kids will be visiting relatives or loved ones, while the other half will be moved into a permanent placement with their forever family just in time for Christmas. The Department of Children and Families and our community partners work diligently to make sure our children spend time with loved ones over the holidays. Children who are in foster care deserve to be with their family and other loved ones during the holiday season, said Secretary David Wilkins. Working together, we can provide memories that will last a lifetime for our kids who may not get opportunities to see their siblings, grandparents or others very often. About 1,200 children will be visiting relatives in Florida and out of state this month. Another 1,200 kids will be placed in their permanent home. The Home for the Holidays program works to expedite placements by completing reunifications already scheduled to occur, finalizing adoptions with new moms and dads, and requesting amended visitation so children may spend time their family on that special day. The initiative requires collaboration from contracted agencies, legal teams, judges, guardians, foster families and dedicated case managers. In many circumstances, the effort requires expedited background screenings, court orders and travel arrangements. The states 18 community-based care agencies frequently pick up the cost of the childrens travel if the family is unable to do so. Foster kids home for the holidays 2,400 children to visit relatives or be placed in permanent homes in time for Christmas

Local Santa Rosas Press Gazette| A15 Saturday, December 22, 2012 Special to the Press Gazette There are new signs of economic opportunity and natural wonders in south Florida. Tourists and residents in 11 southern Florida counties may have noticed that directional signs for the Great Florida Birding and Wildlife Trail were popping up all over the place. The signs direct trafc to 113 new birding and wild life viewing sites from Sara sota and Stuart south to Key West, joining hundreds of other GFBWT locations throughout the state. Not only do these signs, bear ing the swallow-tailed kite logo, designate ideal loca tions for birding and wild life viewing adventures, they are also a symbol of positive economic impact. Gov. Rick Scott said, Wildlife viewing in Florida is a major reason why our state in the most popular tourist destination in the country. I am proud that Flo ridians and our visitors can now better enjoy the wildlife our state has to offer, while creating more opportuni ties for Florida families. A recent study about birding in Florida indicated the trails road signs play an important role in visi tors travel decisions. Of 1,652 participants, 65 per cent had seen a GFBWT road sign, prompting a lat er visit (81 percent indeed visited later). We hope that many Florida families and tour ists will follow these new signs and explore the trail and discover the fascinat ing wildlife these sites have to offer, said Mark Kiser, Great Florida Bird ing and Wildlife Trail coor dinator for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Birding and wildlife viewing are important to Floridas economy, and the GFBWT program is an in tegral component of Flori das nature-based tourism industry. According to U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service data, wildlife viewing gen erates more than $5 billion in Florida and supports 51,000 jobs. A recent state wide survey by Respon sive Management showed that wildlife viewing is the second most popular out door recreation activity in the state (behind going to the beach) for visitors and residents. The FWC installed the trail signage with a grant from the Florida Depart ment of Transportation and support from the Wild life Foundation of Florida. Dozens of federal, state and local government agencies, nongovernmen tal organizations and pri vate landowners also sup ported the effort. In addition to signs, the FWC has produced guide booklets that contain site descriptions, directions and maps showcasing birding and wildlife watch ing opportunities through out Florida. Wildlife en thusiasts can download or order the GFBWT guide books at FloridaBirding Trail.com and Wildlife FoundationofFlorida.com. Need further help plan ning an adventure? Use the Trip-Planning Wizard on the GFBWT website or download the free mobile application Nature View ing Along the Great Flor ida Birding and Wildlife Trail at iTunes.com and Play.Google.com. A series of city and regional guides called Ready, Set, Go Wild is also under way; the Orlando guide is now available.

Todays story is No. 11 Bowler enjoys perfect feat. Heres the story, as published: Mike Hamada marked something off his bowling bucket list recently when he bowled his rst 300 game. Hamada, a left handed bowler who has come close on several occasions, will occasionally wear the ring he received from the United States Bowling Congress for achieving the feat. When I let go of that shot I remember hearing myself say carry, Hamada recalled of the night. For me it was a dream come true to nally bowl my rst 300 game. But I missed my other goal of having an 800 series that night by nishing with a 786. Hamada, who runs the pro shop at Oops Alley, would have to average 267 for three games to achieve the 800 series, but he nished with a 262 on the night. Despite his excitement, Hamada put his feat into perspective. I know a lot of really good bowlers who havent even gotten close to bowling a perfect game (300), Hamada said. There is always that shot or two that seems to get away from you. So when did reality set in on Hamada, who currently bowls in three leagues this summer plus run his business. When I got up in the 10th frame I really started thinking about it, Hamada said. Then when I got my 11th strike I heard some people behind me which gave me chills, but by the 12th strike everyone in the house was behind me and the place went nuts. Ironically the sport of bowling can quickly humble you despite all the well-wishers and questions. People asked me the next week if I was going to bowl a perfect game again, Hamada said. But doing something like this is not easy and I know I didnt bowl some of my best games the next week. Hamada pointed out one bowler he knew bowled a perfect game and in the two previous games shot a 160 and 140. It is just not an easy thing to do, Hamada pointed out. Some feel it may be easier for a lefthander to do since the lanes do not change as much, but Hamada quickly rejects that notion. I dont know if being a left-hander is an advantage or not, said Hamada, who started bowling 20 years ago in a church league after taking a long break from the sport. A lot depends on the transition of the lane and how the oil is carried down to the end. Sometimes the track gives way and other times you might have another left-handed bowler, but I dont think there is any difference.

The upgrade was brought about after the death of Nubia Barahona, a 10-yearold South Florida girl, in 2011. The Barahona Investigative Panel discovered after the incident multiple calls had been made to the center about Nubias situation, but because of the old system. some information was incomplete or inaccurate and, South Florida investigators say they had to do their own research.Work on Avalon Boulevard continuesBy OBIE CRAIN626-9200 | @srpressgazette ocrain@srpressgazette.com Motorists using U.S. 90 East can breath a sigh of relief. There will be no more lane closures and one-way traf c funneling resulting in long waits. Resurfacing the highway from a few yards east of the Local Yokel to the east end of the old brick road has ended, according to the Florida Department of Transportation. Some areas of the highway were widened, and new turn lanes were added for safety. The ve-mile stretch of road construction added a westbound left and an eastbound turn lane off Persimmon Hollow Road. An extended right turn lane at Industrial Boulevard also was extended. The 11-month, $1.8 million project also included some sidewalk construction and American with Disabilities Act improvements. The usual drainage and safety features were part of the overall project, as were new, visible pavement markings, U.S. 90 East serves a heavily populated area including the Santa Rosa County Industrial Park, the alternate travel route to the south end of the county on Highway 87, and residents east to the Okaloosa County boundary. A midweek update from FDOT indicates the following: U.S. 90 to Commerce Road: Crews from Panhandle Grading & Paving Company have begun laying the nal layer of asphalt. Drivers can expect intermittent lane restrictions from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Estimated completion: winter 2013. North of CSX Railroad Bridge to south of Commerce Road: No work took place this week on this section of Avalon Boulevard. Estimated completion: winter 2013. South of Moors Lodge to CSX Railroad: Crews continue to work on roadway construction including milling of the existing roadway, drainage, embankment and placement of sod.

LocalSanta Rosas Press Gazette| A3Saturday, December 22, 2012 Speak OUTSunday, 6:40 a.m. Yes, Im calling in reference to the public transportation. Whether people realize it or not, these folks need this public assistance because theres people that use this transportation for dialysis, to get groceries. Our elderly have no way to get around. They dont thave vehicles, theyre not allowed to drive no more, nor do they need to drive. These covered buildings and spending money on turtle farms and this, that and the other, you know, they need to think about the senior citizens of Florida because thats what makes Florida that is Florida. Lets think about our senior citizens that made this place what it is and take care of them and get them to their doctors appointments and take care of them or there is going to be no more Santa Rosa County. So lets take care of the folks that raised us and taught us right from wrong. OK? Thank you. Tuesday, 7:10 p.m.Yes, this is Maria. Right now Im watching Charlie Brown Christmas. Its relaxing to stay away from the sad news for a little while. I think watching Charlie Brown in memory of all these children is very nice. Its a very nice cartoon. I know Im an old lady, but I still enjoy Charlie Brown at home with all my grandchildren. They think its funny. If I dont call them, they call to remind me. Thank you to Speak Out, and Merry Christmas, a safe Christmas and a Happy New Year. See you next year! Good night.Tuesday, 9:33 p.m.Hello, this is Chet. This time of year, we always see Gretchen Carlson on FOX News talking about theres a war on Christmas and a war on Christianity. Well, I wouldnt say that some atheist nut job some place in the county that wants to get rid of a nativity scene is a war. If you really want to see a war on religion, if you went back to Inquisition, that would be a war on religion right there. But anyway, the real war on Christmas would come from the Bible verse of Jeremiah, 10: 3-4. Therein lies the problem, and theres the war on Christmas there. Thank you.Tuesday, 9:48 p.m.Yes, this is Chet again. I just wanted to add something to my message. I read E.R. McCormicks section about the Christmas parade, and hes absolutely right. Its the work of Satan. It is. Its all Satan.Wednesday, 9:33 a.m.Hi, this is Lee. I dont mean to sound insensitive about any of the shootings thats happened over the past couple of months, especially Fridays shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary, but there does come a time when we need to quit discussing it as much as in the paper, on Facebook, the news media. Let the families mourn. It was a very tragic, tragic thing that happened to them. I pray about them every single day; I think about them every single day. But there does come a time when parents and famlies need to mourn them and not have to look on the computer, TV, Facebook and see pictures of their children. And also, with the parents that are now talking about home-schooling their children, think what youre thinking about here. Youre taking you children out of an environment that theyre used to. Social skills will go down. Just make sure your child knows what is expected of them if something like that was to happen to them. Schools are becoming more protective, so they are going to become more safer. Thank you.Wednesday, 3:16 p.m.Yeah, this is Emily, and I was calling to comment on Tims comment on the Chumuckla Redneck Parade. I agree that it should be moved back to Sunday, but what I want to know is why was everything jumbled up into one weekend when we still had two weekends left to go? I just dont understand that. Its like we have everything on one weekend and then nothing for the next two. I dont understand. Thanks.Wednesday, 8:51 p.m.Yeah, this is Billy. Id lke to say that I like the new app that the sheriffs of ce has got for your phone. And I always like the Jail View site they got on the Internet. But my problem is the people arent putting the offenses in that people are arrested for. I think its nice that we can get to that information, I just would like to know what the peoples offenses are, and I wish the people that are entering the info would do a better job. Thank you.Thursday, 9:11 a.m.Yeah, I was reading the paper from across the county there, other county over there, the mullet wrapper, and I see that the ri e company that made the ri es, the company sellin it is getting out of the business. Lets look at the kid and what he did. I mean, I feel sorry for his victims at the school, but what did this kid do? He read books; he played video games. What video games did he play? Was he killing people in these video games? We have gone with a society that puts video games of killing people, running over people, all kinds of stuff, in the hands of these youths. And then we say its the fault of the guns. No, its parents fault. We need to get back to our morals. Thank you. Its relaxing to stay away from the sad news for a little while. I think watching Charlie Brown in memory of all these children is very nice. Let the families mourn. It was a very tragic, tragic thing that happened to them. But there does come a time when parents and famlies need to mourn them and not have to look on the computer, TV, Facebook and see pictures of their children.

LocalA4 | Santa Rosas Press Gazette Saturday, December 22, 2012 (The hotline) has had upgrades over the years as technology changes, but this is rst massive redesign We started from scratch, said Erin Gillespie, DCF spokeswoman. Improvements include new online abuse reporting technology and better gathering capabilities to help investigators assess the risk of a case early in the process. Reporting technology now will take hotline counselors through a series of questions while pulling information from previous calls and law enforcement. It has been made more of an automated process, instead of relying on each counselor to ask the right questions, Gillespie said. A $7 million appropriation from the Legislature funded the new statewide system and provided about 40 new call center jobs. The new system will affect local DCF ofces by providing more information up front to investigators. The new system also will make sure efforts arent being duplicated by mistakes, such as different spellings of a childs name. Before, if someone called the hotline and gave the name of a kid and someone called later and spelled the name using a different letter, two separate investigators would be put on the case, Gillespie said. If didnt happen constantly, but it did occur. Now, weve streamlined the process. Things like this will match up in the system, and we wont duplicate efforts. The new system is designed to make it easier for law enforcement and school personnel by improving the online reporting tool.

He was a native of Brewton, Ala., but had moved to Milton in 1971. He loved shing and was a crane operator for many years. Mr. Cain was a member of the Holiness faith. He was preceded in death by his mother, Jessie Cain; and granddaughter, April Hayes. Survivors include his wife, Janie Cain; children, Lewis Cain, Paul (Trecia) Cain and Barbara (Jerry) Dunsford; ve grandchildren; 11 greatgrandchildren; and sibling, Suzie Ard. Graveside funeral services were at 3 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 18, 2012, in the Bagdad Cemetery with Rev. Julie Schach ofciating. The family received friends at the Lewis Funeral Home Milton Chapel from 1 to 2 p.m. before services. Pallbearers were Levi Cain, Justin Cain, Josh Cain, Cody ONeal, Cliff Archer and Eddie Podgurski.Lonnie Cain Obituary HOTLINE from page A1done, he said. Zdon said he has never organized anything like the vigil before, but he has found an overowing support from the community. Wal-Mart donated candles, Home Depot donated a Christmas tree and several friends and family helped spread the word about the event. As a father of four, basketball coach and Vice President of Football on the PARA Board of Directors, Zdon has many children he holds close to his heart. I have four boys ages 17, 15, 9 and 7 and I coach basketball. This hit home, he said. Being a coach, theyre not just kids I teach, theyre like my own. Zdon said he wanted the community to get more out of the vigil. If someone needs help, they need to know they can nd it in the community. And we also need to look at other people, because not everyone will ask for help, he said. We need to realize its not just about us. Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., was the scene of the nations second-deadliest shooting in U.S. history on Dec. 14 when a mentally disturbed 20-year-old opened re on small children, killing 20 between the ages of 6 and 7. Ofcials say he killed six adults at the school, including the schools principal and guidance counselor and at least one teacher who protected her students by lying to the shooter. The mother of the shooter was found dead at her home. Some speculate that her plans to have her son committed to a mental health facility might have triggered his anger and lead to the shootings. The unprecedented killing sparked a national debate on gun control; a visit to the town by President Barrack Obama; a national period of mourning with ags at half-staff across the country; a Facebook page with 316,000 likes in less than a week (Sandy Hook Elementary School Massacre Memorial Page); and a nationwide sense of community in the loss of young, innocent lives. NEWTOWN from page A1 Sheriffs Ofce; and the Department of Juvenile Justice, Child Protection Team, ofcials determined Abbotts actions met the criteria. Parker said because Abbott was in a position of authority over the victim; the victim is under the age of 18; and the signicant injury to the victim, felony child abuse charges apply. He described the injuries to the victim in this case as, carpet burns, bruising around the eye and swelling around the face. He said initially, it was believed the victim had a fracture, but that later was determined not to be the case. Reports say the injuries happened Aug. 9 at the facility. The incident was recorded on security cameras. According to the warrant obtained from the Santa Rosa County Sheriffs Ofce, Abbott allegedly is seen in two security camera videos leading the victim with her arm secured. Investigators indicate the victim shows no signs of resisting Abbott. The victim is observed not pulling her arms away from the defendant; the victim is not attempting to strike the defendant in any manner and is compliant throughout the entire event, according to the report. Abbott then is alleged to have stopped the victim, facing a wall, and is observed repositioning her grip on her arm: The defendants forearms are now wrapped around the victims arms at her elbows with the defendants hands clinched together and positioned into the middle of the victims back, the report states. After (Abbott) repositions her grip she moved her stance closer to the victim from behind. According to investigator Larry Tynes report, the victim was about two feet from the cement cinder block wall when Abbott allegedly thrust herself toward the victim in a very forceful manner, using her upper and lower body strength, pushing the victim violently into the wall. The report stated the victims chest area and chin bounced off the wall. Seconds later the defendant stops speaking to the victim and pulls the victim with great force and violently throws the victim to the oor while restraining the victims arms behind their back. Abbott is alleged to have landed on top of the victims back with her full weight. The report indicated the victim weighs 148 pounds and that Abbotts observed size is much greater than the victims as depicted in the video. When investigators attempted to speak to Abbott, she said she was going to have a lawyer present before she spoke. Abbott was charged with battery on Dec. 4 by SRCSO. A second investigation continues into the actions of the facilitys director, Carol Andrus, who is accused of grabbing the neck of a restrained client and throwing the 15-year-old to the ground. The DJJ report indicates the teenager received lacerations to her face and ear that looked like it needed stitches. Citing concerns over safety and security at the facility, the DJJ has placed an admissions freeze on the Milton Girls Juvenile Residential Facility. No charges have been led against Andrus to date.

LocalA6 | Santa Rosas Press Gazette Saturday, December 22, 2012 DCF: Stay calm and explain whats going on in terms they can understandSpecial to the Press GazetteTALLAHASSEE Children can start showing signs of trauma right away or months after a disastrous event. Just hearing about an event on the news or seeing a reaction from parents is enough to have an effect on kids. You might not have spoken to your kids over the weekend about the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy, but it is possible they heard something at school and might have questions for you about it. Jennifer Evans, a licensed mental health counselor and traumatologist at the Department of Children and Families who specializes in compassion fatigue, offers these signs to look for in your children and ways you can comfort your child during this time. Be clear: Talking about tragedy and death can be very difcult for anyone. Being clear and only answering what the child is asking will help them to understand without getting into too much graphic detail. Try using dialogue like, When people die, their bodies stop working. Be available: Let your kids ask the questions. Start by asking them, What do you think happened? Allow them to guide the conversation where they need to go to help them cope. Stay calm: Children learn emotional reactions and coping through adults. The way adults react to events is often the way the child perceives and reacts to the event. It is OK to cry and show concern and emotion, and then to show appropriate ways to cope and heal. Try using dialogue like, It is OK to feel confused and hurt. Sometimes people cry to show how sad they are. This allows their body to feel better. Normalize their feelings: When a tragedy happens it can be confusing, and often, kids are uncertain of the emotions they are feeling. Use this opportunity to discuss emotions and the way kids are feeling and explain how you can cope. Try using dialogue like, Often people feel sad when something like this happens. It is hard to understand why someone would do something like this. Understand how children cope: You might see your child try to act out the traumatic event through their dolls or other toys. This can be scary for a parent to see, but kids will often replay the event as a way to cope. You can use this opportunity to discuss their play and their memory of the event. This is a great time to clarify and normalize their reaction again. Try doing an activity to help provide closure for your child. Ask your child if they would like to say or do anything to help the families who have experienced this tragedy. They might want to write a letter or a card to the school or the families to say they are sorry and offer words of hope and encouragement. Notice changes in behavior: Often, the effect of trauma on your body does not happen until weeks after the event. This is a normal process of coping. If your childs behavior dramatically changes for an extended amount of time, consult a professional. Common symptoms of trauma include sleeplessness, over/under eating, extended sadness for no immediate explanation, extended traumatic play, lack of focus/concentration and nightmares. We are all keeping the victims in our thoughts and prayers. The national Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration provides more information about coping strategies and how children and adults are affected by and react to tragedy. We encourage you to visit www. samhsa.gov/trauma for resources about how to help your friends and family during this time. Parents can help children cope after trauma

LocalSanta Rosas Press Gazette| A7Saturday, December 22, 2012 By LAUREN SAGE REINLIE863-1111 | @laurenrnwfdn lreinlie@nwfdailynews.com As part of the Air Forces quest to nd more space to meet increasing training demands in Northwest Florida, it now will be allowed to conduct nonhazardous missions on additional stateowned land. The state Department of Environmental Protection agreed last week to allow the Air Force to set up communications equipment on pockets of land across the region. The agreement is part of a recent effort to ease competition for range space on Eglin Air Force Bases reservation, which spans 460,000 acres. After the last base realignment in 2005, which brought several new missions to Eglin and surrounding bases, ofcials began looking for public or private land nearby for nonhazardous training. This will allow us to have a lot more exibility to use the range for what it was really designed for testing and shooting and all those things that come with hazardous activity, said Michael Penland, the Air Forces director of base operations. Before moving to his position at the Pentagon, Penland was in charge of operational support at Eglin, where he began working on the project to nd nearby land for training. He has continued that effort in Washington, D.C. In October, the Air Force signed its rst agreement to use Florida Forest Service land. The state agreed to allow the military to use about 400,000 acres in the Blackwater River State Forest near Eglin and Tates Hell State Forest near Apalachicola, Penland said. He said the Air Force plans to sign a similar agreement with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission in the near future. The agreements are one of a kind and could serve as models for similar arrangements across the country. This is rst time weve actually tried to do something to this scale, especially in the Air Force, Penland said. The DEP agreement allows the Air Force to set up mobile threat emitters, which are used for air training. Currently, the emitters are housed at Eglin, but they rarely are used because they must be spread over a large area, Penland said. Under the agreement signed with the Forest Service, the military including the Army 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne) at Eglin will be able to run small ground-training missions, and other groups will be able to land aircraft such as the CV-22, Penland said. It will offer some opportunities unavailable on the Eglin reservation and shorten wait times for the space. No live ammunition will be red on state lands, ofcials said. Penland said the state agencies and the Air Force have worked to make sure the training missions will not disrupt any endangered species or restrict recreational activities. They searched for areas where the training would be compatible with what the land already is being used for. (The state) has been very forthcoming in helping us look for places we might be able to use, he said. Patrick Gillespie, a spokesman for DEP, said the agreement is the rst of its kind, but ts in with the agencys overall mission. Its been a priority of the DEP to purchase state land that buffers military installations and to work to support our armed forces, Gillespie said. He said the plan was presented at two public meetings before it was approved. The details of how, when and where the land will be used will be hammered out over the next two months. Gov. Rick Scott praised the partnership in a news release issued last week. This agreement is another step in making Florida the most military-friendly state in the nation, he said. Not only will this decision strengthen our nations security, but it will support our military communities that provide jobs for Florida families. Next week: How will this agreement affect Santa Rosa County? 9622316 wsre.org/downton By OBIE CRAINSpecial to the Press Gazette ocrain@srpressgazette.com If you havent tuned in to your Santa Rosa County Division of Emergency Management lately, you might not be aware of some of its basic tools designed to protect citizens and property in emergency situations. Many people associate the Emergency Management Division of county government with hurricanes. But hurricanes, which are pretty much conned to a seasonal pattern, are far from the only disaster that can affect the community. Floods, re, industrial accidents, earthquakes and the like should never be dismissed or trivialized. In its dedication to addressing such calamities and to give assistance to those affected, SRCDEM has developed technology that can help residents plan for, or emerge from, these types of disruptive occurrence. Major among the programs offered by the SRCDEM is the E-breaking News platform, email and text message notications. To use this tool, register on the countys website, www.santarosa. .gov/emergency/publicwarning. html. The instructions will tell you how to access the program. Disaster information is also available online at the countys website. The information there is updated regularly and can be relayed to you via emails. All you have to do is ask to be added to the list. You can do that by accessing joyt@santarosa..gov. Perhaps the most serviceable program SRCDEM offers is the Reverse 911, a high-speed telephone system used to call homes and businesses in case of emergencies. The program is so sensitive it can call only sections of the county affected by a calamity. It relays a recorded message giving the receiver important information about the disaster and recommends steps to take to protect life and property. The SRCDEM also has prepared the Ofcial Santa Rosa County Disaster Preparedness Guide available online. Its a 48-page publication that gives valuable information on what to do before, during and after a variety of disaster scenarios. It is available on the web at the same site that gives you E-breaking News. Additionally, we highly recommend the purchase of a NOAA weather radio for all homes, businesses and rental properties, said Sheryl Bracewell, the director of the countys emergency management.

LocalSanta Rosas Press Gazette| A9Saturday, December 22, 2012Special to the Press GazetteWood storks in the Southeastern United States no longer face imminent danger of extinction The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is proposing to upgrade the status of the U.S. breeding population of wood storks from endangered to threatened under the Endangered Species Act. The proposal follows a comprehensive review, conducted by service biologists, of the best available scientic and commercial information about the species status. The proposed reclassication of the wood stork demonstrates that the Endangered Species Act works, said Dan Ashe, director for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. This is a good day for the wood stork, and a good day for conservation. Thanks to great efforts from our conservation partners, the species is making real progress toward recovery. The wood stork is the only true species of stork nesting in the United States. Since its original ESA listing as endangered in 1984, the U.S. breeding population has shown substantial improvement in the numbers of nesting pairs as a whole and the expansion of its breeding range. The three-year averages during the past 10 years range from 7,086 to 8,996 nesting pairs, all above the 6,000 nesting pair benchmark average established for reclassifying the species as threatened, but well below the ve-year average of 10,000 nesting pairs needed for delisting. Although some habitat loss continues, current population data clearly indicate that the wood stork is beneting from the work of private landowners and several strong partnership efforts, said Cindy Dohner, the Services Southeast regional director. The wood stork is expanding its breeding range using a wide variety of wetlands to forage, roost, and breed, including man-made and restored wetlands. The proposed reclassication would not change any conservation or protection measures for the wood stork under the ESA. Rather it would recognize the storks ongoing recovery and the positive impact that collaborative conservation efforts over the last two decades have had on breeding populations. With a continuing trend, the species could become suitable for de-listing from the ESA. Therefore, addressing the threats associated with habitat loss, including the protection of natural wetlands through partnerships and the focused management of public lands, remains a conservation priority for the Service. When the Service originally listed the Southeastern U.S. portion of the population, the wood storks range included Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and Alabama and breeding was primarily in central and south Florida. Historically, the Florida Everglades and the Big Cypress National Preserve once supported large breeding colonies. Today its range includes portions of North Carolina and Mississippi with signicant nesting in Florida, Georgia and South Carolina. Biologists believe man-made changes in the Everglades and Big Cypress ecosystems have contributed to the birds expanded breeding range. The Natural Resources Conservation Service Wetlands Reserve Program has restored more than 200,000 acres of wetlands in Florida and more than 115,000 acres in Alabama, Georgia and South Carolina during the past 18 years. Thousands of acres of wetlands also are being protected on private lands to assist in habitat and wildlife protection through restoration in conjunction with establishing conservation easements. Wetland losses are being avoided, minimized and mitigated through project consultations and the regulatory process. The wood stork has shown a fascinating ability to respond to changes in hydrology by broadening its breeding range beyond central Florida, the Everglades, and Big Cypress ecosystems, said Dave Hankla, eld supervisor for the Services North Florida Ecological Services Ofce in Jacksonville. However, this does not reduce the importance restoration of the storks historical breeding area has for recovery. Nor does it diminish the signicant role South Floridas ecosystems play for wood storks and other wildlife. Large-scale restoration projects such as the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Program, Kissimmee River Restoration Project and St. Johns River Headwaters Restoration Project are signicant conservation efforts that continue to greatly benet wood stork recovery. Florida nesting pairs totaled more than 5,000 in 2011. The announcement, which will publish in the Federal Register in coming days, also constitutes the services 12-month warranted nding on a petition to reclassify the wood stork, which was submitted by the Pacic Legal Foundation and Biological Research Associates, on behalf of the Florida Home Builders Association. To ensure its nal decision reects the best available information, the Service is soliciting comments from the public, other concerned governmental agencies, Tribal governments, the scientic community, industry and any other interested parties. Anyone wishing to submit information regarding the wood stork throughout its Southeast U.S. breeding range may do so via one of the following methods once the rule has published: Submit online at www. regulations.gov or mail to Public Comments Processing, Attn: FWS-R4ES-2011-0020, Division of Policy and Directives Management, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, 4401 N.

LocalSanta Rosas Press Gazette| A11Saturday, December 22, 2012 Special to the Press Gazette During the holiday season, Americans throw away more material than at any other time of the year. According the EPA, the volume of household waste in the United States generally increases 25 percent between Thanksgiving and New Years day, approximately one million extra tons. With more recycling choices available in Santa Rosa County than ever before, you can make the holiday season the season of recycling. Citizens can recycle glass, metal, plastic containers, paper and cardboard with curbside collections by their residential garbage collection service, hauling the items to the Central Landll or Gulf Breeze and Jay transfer stations, or by taking items to one of the 19 recycling drop off sites located throughout the county. Our recycle contractor will be servicing the containers quickly and often, but usage will be extremely high after Christmas. When using the recycling drop of sites, be sure to deposit only recyclable materials and place your items in the containers. Residents are reminded that recycle areas are not disposal areas for furniture or household garbage that is not sorted, recyclable material. Please do not dispose of carpet, furniture, toilets, sinks, vinyl ooring, or wicker furniture in the recycle bins. Not only can people be ned for illegal dumping, it can cause the site to be closed or relocated, which can be a great inconvenience to those that are using the site as intended. The removal of materials out of the recycle containers such as aluminum cans, plastics or other items is also illegal. This material is property of the countys recycle contractor. A list of all Santa Rosa County recycling points and acceptable materials can also be found on the countys website at www.santarosa. .gov/recycle. Questions?

JoAnn Watson, Detroit city council member, once said, Our people in an overwhelming way supported the reelection of this president, and there ought to be a quid pro quo. In other words, President Barack Obama should send the nearly bankrupted city of Detroit millions in taxpayer bailout money. But theres a painful lesson to be learned from decades of political hustling and counsel by intellectuals and urban experts. In 1960, Detroits population was 1.6 million. Blacks were 29 percent, and whites were 70 percent. Today, Detroits population has fallen precipitously to 707,000, of which blacks are 84 percent and whites 8 percent. Much of the citys decline began with the election of Coleman Young, Detroits rst black mayor and mayor for ve terms, who engaged in political favoritism to blacks and tax policies against higher income mostly white people. Youngs successors, Dennis Archer and Kwame Kilpatrick, followed his Third World tyrant policies, but neither had his verbal vulgarity. Kilpatrick (2002-2008) went to jail and is on trial today on charges of corruption. Mayor David Bing is making an effort to revive Detroit. His problem is that hes not God. Policies that ran whites and other more af uent people out of Detroit might have been Youngs and his successors strategy. After all, why not get rid of people who arent going to vote for you anyway? The problem is that getting rid of these people left Detroit with a lower tax base, fewer jobs and fewer consumers. Fewer whites might be good for the careers of black politicians, but its not in the best interests of ordinary blacks. Blacks have political control of Detroit, but the relevant question is whether some control of something is better than 100 percent control of nothing. By most measures, Detroit is one of the nations most tragic cities, and its mostly self-imposed. Detroit topped Forbes magazines 2010 list of Americas Most Dangerous Cities. That year, there were 345 homicides, but thats going to be topped with this years 365 homicides so far. Most homicide victims in Detroit and elsewhere are black, and 95 percent of the time, their murderers are black. But far more important to black leaders and white liberals than blacks murdering blacks are charges of police misconduct and racial pro ling. Detroits predominantly black public schools are close to being the worst in the nation, perhaps with the exception of those of Washington, D.C. Only 4 percent of Detroits eighth-graders scored proficient or above on the most recent National Assessment of Education Progress test, sometimes called The Nations Report Card. Thirty-six percent scored basic, and 57 percent below basic. Below basic is when a student is unable to demonstrate even partial mastery of knowledge and skills fundamental for proficient work at their grade level. Basic indicates only partial mastery. Unbeknownst to most black parents is that most black students who manage to graduate from high school cannot read and compute any better than whites four years younger and still in junior high school. Heres a question for you: If we put a group of 100 students of any race having an eighthgrade level of proficiency and another group of 100 students of any race with a 12th-grade level of proficiency in college, is it reasonable to expect the first group to perform as well as the second? On top of that, is it reasonable to expect a student of any race to be able to make up 12 years of fraudulent K-12 education in the space of four or five years of college? Detroits social pathology is seen in other cities with large black populations such as Philadelphia, Newark, N.J, Baltimore, Md., and Chicago. These are cities where blacks have for years dominated the political machinery in the forms of mayors, police chiefs, superintendents of schools and city councilmen, plus theyve been Democrats. Its safe to conclude that the focus on political power doesnt do much for ordinary blacks. Walter E. Williams is a professor of economics at George Mason University. Page 12 www.srpressgazette.comSaturday, December 22, 2012 ASection OPINION 100 percent of nothingWe all had several years of stories, novels and even Hollywood movies to prepare us for the end of time. And those who love to speak of doomsday wasted no time in latching on to the fact that the Mayans long count calendar had no dates beyond December 21, 2012. Surely, these mongers conjectured, this means the Mayans knew something and the world is about to end. It never seemed to cross anyones mind that the Mayans may have looked at the calendar, signed from their exhaustive effort and said, Hmm, 5,125 years of calculationsthats good enough for anyone and left it at that. We suppose its just more fun to prognosticate over Armageddon than to admit ignorance and move through life as through a dark forest. Humans, after all, have a long love affair with the end of the world: In 1910,many were certain the end was coming when the earth passed through the tail of Halleys comet. Of course, nothing happened, but that didnt stop the doomsdayers. Theyre always ready to leap from one failed forecast and latch onto the next. Some may recall Pat Robertson telling those watching his 700 Club in 1980 that he guaranteed a judgment on the world by the end of 1982. As the calendar rolled into 1983, nothing visible had happened. In 1997, a California group known as Heavens Gate was certain an alien spacecraft was coming marking the end of the world. Thirty-nine members of that group ended up killing themselves. Few people have not heard the name of Nostradamus. In 1999, the name was on many tongues as the public latched onto one of the writers quadtrains which promised a king of terror in the 7th month of 1999. While it wasnt being billed as the end of the world it was being put forth as a world of problems. The Y2K bug was expected to bring planes crashing from the sky a result of no maintenance and ruin nancial banking systems. Nothing happened. As if that werent enough, there was an attempt 12 months later to say 2001 would be the REAL Y2K bug. Nothing happened then, either. P.T. Barnum is often credited with saying theres a sucker born every minute. Were not sure if he was the real author of that phrase, but the words seem to ring true. Why is it that we, as a people, are so quick to believe end-oftime prophecies? If you really feel you need to live beneath the fear of end times, turn to Erich Von Daniken. In the 1960s, he wrote the book Chariots of the Gods. Daniken postulated the earth had, long ago been visited by aliens who had meddled with the DNA of this planets life to create humankind. He then linked that thought to the Mayan calendar saying the aliens would return in 2012. Quick to hedge his bets, though, Daniken says the Mayans calculations could be off by up to 25 years. So, the Mayan theory remains active for another quarter of a century. So, should we go to work Monday? Do we really have to pay our bills? After all, Dec. 21, 2013, is coming.

LocalA14 | Santa Rosas Press Gazette Saturday, December 22, 2012 By ObBIE CRAINSpecial to Press Gazette ocrain@srpressgazette.com Santa Rosa County Commissioners recently voted to extend the suspension of transportation or road impact fees for the fth year in a row. This waiver will extend the suspension of the transportation through December of 2013. Any new construction, residential or commercial, which would normally be assessed a transportation impact fee during the building permit process in 2009 through 2013 will have impact fees waived. However, those paying installments will be required to make payments for 2010, 2011, and 2013. It is anticipated the Commissioners will review and address the suspension again in November 2013 for the following years. During a commissionmeeting workshop on January 29, 2009, the Commissioners originally voted to suspend the collection of the transportation impact fees for the 2009 calendar year as an incentive to stimulate new local construction projects. Considering the current national downturn in the economy and high unemployment, commissioners understand the need to create employment opportunities, including the construction industry. Commissioners hope the savings recognized from the suspension will act as an economic stimulus. An impact fee is a onetime charge to offset the cost of new or expanded infrastructure to accommodate a new development. Impact fees are generally categorized by the project, and a county may one or multiple impact fees. Examples can include impact fees for roads, water, sewer, drainage, parks, libraries, re services, law enforcement services, and schools. When instated, the amount of impact fees collected changes each year as it is dependent on the number of building permits issued, In scalyear2007 and 2008, 623 road impact fees were processed and over $1.8 million were collected to help fund road projects within Santa Rosa County.Impact fees waived By Ob B IE CRAINSpecial to the Press Gazette ocrain@srpressgazette.com Shopping online is one of the most convenient ways to browse and buy these day but, buyer beware! Shoppers must be aware when using the convenience of the Internet to shop. The good side is shopping online can happen any time and anywhere, eliminating the challenges of crowded stores, thieves lurking about, and the frustration of not nding the right item. Shopping from the kitchen table online is so much more comfortable than ghting crowds. Shopping online, however, has certain pitfalls to avoid. Knowing how and where to shop can often minimize the chance of scams. Shopping at well-established online businesses is practical and safer. Reading what others say about a business is helpful. Be particular about shopping at stores outside the United States. While online retailers in this country are regulated by U.S consumer laws, those outside the U, S. are not. There could be problems if a dispute arises, or if the buyer is not satised with the purchase. There are other tips to consider when shopping on line. Use credit cards if possible. This makes it easier to negotiate differences when it is necessary. If the credit card is compromised by loss or theft, you are only responsible for the first $30 in unauthorized charges with most companies. In many cases credit card companies will waive that. Debit cards do not offer this protection. Shop at secure sites that display see the lock icon, and be extra careful not to be tricked into sharing personal information like a Social Security number or other personal data. Watch checking accounts and other statements for buying activity that may be unfamiliar. Take particular care and examine them closely. Often, if the discrepancy is reported quickly, its more often that not, it can also be solved just as quickly. Whether shopping in area retail establishments or online, be careful and follow common sense scenarios. The holiday will be more safe and secure for the effort.Pros and cons of shopping onlineTALLAHASSEE Thousands of children in foster care will be going Home for the Holidays this month. Half of the kids will be visiting relatives or loved ones, while the other half will be moved into a permanent placement with their forever family just in time for Christmas. The Department of Children and Families and our community partners work diligently to make sure our children spend time with loved ones over the holidays. Children who are in foster care deserve to be with their family and other loved ones during the holiday season, said Secretary David Wilkins. Working together, we can provide memories that will last a lifetime for our kids who may not get opportunities to see their siblings, grandparents or others very often. About 1,200 children will be visiting relatives in Florida and out of state this month. Another 1,200 kids will be placed in their permanent home. The Home for the Holidays program works to expedite placements by completing reunifications already scheduled to occur, finalizing adoptions with new moms and dads, and requesting amended visitation so children may spend time their family on that special day. The initiative requires collaboration from contracted agencies, legal teams, judges, guardians, foster families and dedicated case managers. In many circumstances, the effort requires expedited background screenings, court orders and travel arrangements. The states 18 community-based care agencies frequently pick up the cost of the childrens travel if the family is unable to do so.Foster kids home for the holidays 2,400 children to visit relatives or be placed in permanent homes in time for Christmas

LocalSanta Rosas Press Gazette| A15Saturday, December 22, 2012Special to the Press GazetteThere are new signs of economic opportunity and natural wonders in south Florida. Tourists and residents in 11 southern Florida counties may have noticed that directional signs for the Great Florida Birding and Wildlife Trail were popping up all over the place. The signs direct trafc to 113 new birding and wildlife viewing sites from Sarasota and Stuart south to Key West, joining hundreds of other GFBWT locations throughout the state. Not only do these signs, bearing the swallow-tailed kite logo, designate ideal locations for birding and wildlife viewing adventures, they are also a symbol of positive economic impact. Gov. Rick Scott said, Wildlife viewing in Florida is a major reason why our state in the most popular tourist destination in the country. I am proud that Floridians and our visitors can now better enjoy the wildlife our state has to offer, while creating more opportunities for Florida families. A recent study about birding in Florida indicated the trails road signs play an important role in visitors travel decisions. Of 1,652 participants, 65 percent had seen a GFBWT road sign, prompting a later visit (81 percent indeed visited later). We hope that many Florida families and tourists will follow these new signs and explore the trail and discover the fascinating wildlife these sites have to offer, said Mark Kiser, Great Florida Birding and Wildlife Trail coordinator for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Birding and wildlife viewing are important to Floridas economy, and the GFBWT program is an integral component of Floridas nature-based tourism industry. According to U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service data, wildlife viewing generates more than $5 billion in Florida and supports 51,000 jobs. A recent statewide survey by Responsive Management showed that wildlife viewing is the second most popular outdoor recreation activity in the state (behind going to the beach) for visitors and residents. The FWC installed the trail signage with a grant from the Florida Department of Transportation and support from the Wildlife Foundation of Florida. Dozens of federal, state and local government agencies, nongovernmental organizations and private landowners also supported the effort. In addition to signs, the FWC has produced guide booklets that contain site descriptions, directions and maps showcasing birding and wildlife watching opportunities throughout Florida. Wildlife enthusiasts can download or order the GFBWT guidebooks at FloridaBirding Trail.com and Wildlife FoundationofFlorida.com. Need further help planning an adventure? Use the Trip-Planning Wizard on the GFBWT website or download the free mobile application Nature Viewing Along the Great Florida Birding and Wildlife Trail at iTunes.com and Play.Google.com. A series of city and regional guides called Ready, Set, Go Wild is also under way; the Orlando guide is now available. For more information about this project, please contact Mark Kiser at Mark.Kiser@MyFWC.com or call 850-488-9478.

Todays story is No. 11 Bowler enjoys perfect feat. Heres the story, as published: Mike Hamada marked something off his bowling bucket list recently when he bowled his rst 300 game. Hamada, a left handed bowler who has come close on several occasions, will occasionally wear the ring he received from the United States Bowling Congress for achieving the feat. When I let go of that shot I remember hearing myself say carry, Hamada recalled of the night. For me it was a dream come true to nally bowl my rst 300 game. But I missed my other goal of having an 800 series that night by nishing with a 786. Hamada, who runs the pro shop at Oops Alley, would have to average 267 for three games to achieve the 800 series, but he nished with a 262 on the night. Despite his excitement, Hamada put his feat into perspective. I know a lot of really good bowlers who havent even gotten close to bowling a perfect game (300), Hamada said. There is always that shot or two that seems to get away from you. So when did reality set in on Hamada, who currently bowls in three leagues this summer plus run his business. When I got up in the 10th frame I really started thinking about it, Hamada said. Then when I got my 11th strike I heard some people behind me which gave me chills, but by the 12th strike everyone in the house was behind me and the place went nuts. Ironically the sport of bowling can quickly humble you despite all the well-wishers and questions. People asked me the next week if I was going to bowl a perfect game again, Hamada said. But doing something like this is not easy and I know I didnt bowl some of my best games the next week. Hamada pointed out one bowler he knew bowled a perfect game and in the two previous games shot a 160 and 140. It is just not an easy thing to do, Hamada pointed out. Some feel it may be easier for a lefthander to do since the lanes do not change as much, but Hamada quickly rejects that notion. I dont know if being a left-hander is an advantage or not, said Hamada, who started bowling 20 years ago in a church league after taking a long break from the sport. A lot depends on the transition of the lane and how the oil is carried down to the end. Sometimes the track gives way and other times you might have another left-handed bowler, but I dont think there is any difference.No. 11: Bowler enjoys perfect featPHOTOS BY BILL GAMBLIN | Press GazetteAbove: Mike Hamada, who recently bowled his rst 300 game, is seen preparing to drill a bowling ball by taking the measurements at the Pro Shop he operates at Oops Alley.
