Of cials have not released the identity of the person sought by law enforcement, but the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission issued a statement saying a warrant had been sought and was issued recently. The action came about after a Dec. 10 report from a man living on Indian Ford Road. The complainant told an FWC of cer one of his dogs had been missing since the day before. It looked like the dog had escaped from a fenced-in yard. By LYNNE HOUGH news@srpressgazette.com A waterfront restaurant is coming to downtown Milton. Paul Kilmartin, owner of Blackwater Bistro, and a partner, purchased the property next to the train trestle south of the Riverwalk Park. They plan to put in an open-air, outdoorsy beach-type restaurant where customers will have access by water as well as by land. It will be nice to be able to pull a boat up and have a sandwich and a beer or a coke, he says. Kilmartin says the Blackwater Bistro, located a block from Riverwalk, will celebrate its 5th anniversary on Jan. 1. The bistro opened following two years of renovation and work by Kilmartin and his wife, Pam. New place to dine coming to Milton By SARA BERRES and LYNNE HOUGH 630-247-9821 sberres@srpressgazette.com The Milton Housing Authoritys multi-story units at James and Byrom streets will be coming down in the near future. The properties are substandard and need to be repaired, Milton City Manager Brian Watkins said. It is in pretty bad shape. Watkins said the property has issues with the heating, ventilation and air conditioning, as well as with the plumbing and oors. While the property is located inside the city limits, the apartments are actually owned by the housing authority. A board was appointed to manage funds that were received from Housing and Urban Development (HUD). It was the board that rst looked at the issue a year ago. Though crime has occasionally been a problem in the area, Watkins says it was not a deciding factor on whether the housing should be demolished. I did have a conversation with the police chief, Watkins said, and there have not been as many signi cant calls there. There were problems with a party last summer, but mostly it is minor crimes you might nd anywhere. Built more than 30 years ago, Watkins said it is not the only HUD property. Astor Village is another neighborhood owned by HUD, and there are others, including some onestory places near the targeted apartments. Rent vouchers have been given to qualifying families who were living at the multistory units and they have relocated. The units are now vacant. Watkins says meters have been pulled from the property and the demolition company has been chosen. It is likely a matter of days before the apartments will be torn down. Once the apartments are demolished and removed, Watkins said the property will not be left abandoned. One suggestion Ive heard is a retirement facility may go in.

By SARA BERRES 630-247-9821 sberres@srpressgazette.com There have been three shooting incidents in Santa Rosa County over the past three weeks. The most recent occurred Monday when a Pace man confronted someone attempting to break into his vehicle at his home on Pembrook Place. Sheriffs of cials said the victim heard noises outside his house around 6:30 p.m. and went outside to investigate. He told deputies he found a man wearing all black trying to burglarize his vehicle. As the two began to ght, a second man unknown approached to help the rst man. During the struggle, one of the men pulled a handgun and shot the victim. He was struck in the leg and the nger. Reports say both suspects ed the scene. The victim received help from his family, who were home at the time. Santa Rosa Sheriffs Sgt. Scott Haines said Thursday there was no new information, and no suspects have been located at this time. On Dec. 4, deputies were called to the intersection of Santa Villa Drive and East Avenida de Golf in Pace after receiving reports of several vehicles in the intersection and three to four shots being red. One man driving by the intersection reported his vehicle received a bullet hole through the drivers side window. He was treated for injuries from broken glass. Deputies said the victim was not the intended target, but was in the wrong place at the wrong time. No arrests have been made for the Dec. 4 incident. On Dec. 16, a drive-by shooting was reported in the Skyline area of Milton after two people in a vehicle red at a man in his driveway on Julia Drive. Gregory Omar Johnson, 27, and his 24-year-old girlfriend, Barbara Leann Baggett, were arrested after turning themselves in to police days following the shooting. Witnesses say Johnson leaned out the passenger window of the car Baggett was driving and shot at the victim, who dropped to the ground. He was not injured. The shooting is believed to be in retaliation for Johnsons cousins arrest in Escambia County on Friday. Anyone with information concerning any of these incidents is asked to contact the sheriffs ofce at 983-1190, call Santa Rosa Crime Stoppers at 850-437-STOP or submit a tip at www.srccs.com. 3 shootings, 3 weeks The family that plays together...

When we took off the wet drywall, we found a treasure inside, beautiful heart pine the walls, the ceiling, the oors. Its a beautiful building. Kilmartin describes the atmosphere as, Truly warming, embracing, sort of an Irish-pub atmosphere. It is an historic venue with an eclectic menu. The new restaurant plans are in the infancy stage, with no plans set yet in stone. We have no real timeline set yet, he said. Would love to say by summer, but that is pretty optimistic.

This re represents the rst candle extinguished on the Keep Your Holidays Bright re safety tree. Santa Rosa Emergency Communications was noti ed of the re in a mobile home at 2:18 p.m. Dec. 22. Crews arrived on scene at 2:20 p.m., and the re was under control by 2:35 p.m. Units from Midway, Gulf Breeze and Holley-Navarre responded. The re, believed to be started by a space heater, destroyed the camper and displaced one adult. The American Red Cross was called to assist. No one was injured; however, a pet dog was lost in the re. A second residential structure re represents the second candle to be extinguished on the re safety tree. Santa Rosa County Emergency Communications received a call at 5:54 a.m. Friday reporting a re in the 8400 block of Sevilla Street in Navarre. The re was fully involved when crews arrived on scene at 6:01 a.m. The one resident of the home was transported to Gulf Breeze Hospital in stable condition for smoke inhalation. The mobile home was a total loss, and the state re marshal is investigating the cause of the re. Holley-Navarre, Navarre Beach, Midway and Florosa re departments responded. Underwriters Laboratories offer the following safety tips when using a space heater: Keep all space heaters at least three feet away from household combustibles. Use space heaters only as a supplementary source of heat. These devices are not intended to replace the homes heating system. Do not use extension cords with space heaters unless absolutely necessary. Inspect the heaters cord periodically to look for frayed wire or damaged insulation. Do not use a space heater with a damaged cord. Check periodically for a secure plug/ outlet t. If the plug becomes very hot, the outlet might need to be replaced by a quali ed technician. This could be the sign of a potential home wiring issue. Heaters should be placed on a at, level surface. Do not place heaters on furniture because they might fall and become damaged or break parts in the heater. Unless the heater is designed for use outdoors or in bathrooms, do not use in damp, wet areas. 2 candles extinguished on safety tree The man found a dead dog near Munson Highway and Indian Ford Road but told of cials the dogs collar was missing.

From The Associated Press 3 elected ofcials suspended, charged SOUTH BAY Three elected ofcials in a small city located at the southern end of Lake Okeechobee have been suspended from ofce after being charged with Sunshine Law violations. The Palm Beach Post reports that Gov. Rick Scott suspended South Bay Mayor Shirley Walker-Turner, vice mayor Linda Johnson and commissioner John Wilson earlier this month. Prosecutors say the ofcials made a behindthe-scenes deal to pay city manager Corey Alston $25,139 for 498 hours in unused vacation pay. Alton has been charged with grand theft and placed on administrative leave.

The company famous for water shows featuring killer whales, dolphins and other animals at SeaWorld said Thursday that it is planning to go public. SeaWorld Entertainment Inc. has led for an initial public offering of stock aimed at raising $100 million. That number is likely to change as the companys bankers gauge interest from investors. From its origins as a Busch Gardens animal park at Anheuser-Buschs Tampa Budweiser brewery, the company has grown to span 11 theme parks housing 67,000 animals. Besides the three SeaWorld parks, the company owns two Busch Gardens parks and Sesame Place, an amusement park based on the childrens TV show Sesame Street. The company warns that its business is dependent on customers willingness to spend on leisure and entertainment which may be a tough proposition in a stillweak U.S. economy. Still, SeaWorlds revenue has risen in the three years that its been owned by private equity rm Blackstone Group LP. The company has looked for ways to stay competitive in the current market, branching out this year with a Saturday morning television show, Sea Rescue, on the ABC network to attract young viewers. Blackstone is expected to sell some of its stock in the IPO but keep a majority stake, SeaWorld said in a ling with the Securities and Exchange Commission. SeaWorld plans to use money raised in the IPO to pay down debt and make a payment to the New York-based rm. Blackstone bought SeaWorld, formerly Busch Entertainment Corp., from beer brewer AnheuserBusch InBev in 2009 for $2.3 billion. The Belgian company was shedding assets to help pay for its $52 billion takeover of St. Louisbased Anheuser-Busch in 2008. Alachua County may put ofcers in elementary schools GAINESVILLE Alachua Countys law enforcement may temporarily patrol public elementary schools all day long once classes resume on Jan. 3. The Gainesville Sun reports that the Alachua County Sheriffs Ofce and the School Board are considering a proposal that would place armed deputies at the 12 elementary schools that lie outside Gainesville city limits for the duration of the school day. If the proposal goes through, off-duty deputies would be assigned to patrol the schools from 7:30 a.m. until 30 minutes after dismissal at the expense of the sheriffs ofce. Currently, school resource ofcers are provided to middle and high schools. Ofcials are searching for ways to permanently fund school resource ofcers in elementary schools. Mom urges people not to shoot guns off on New Years Eve TAMPA The mother of a boy who was hit by a stray bullet from celebratory gunre on New Years Day 2012 is speaking out in hopes of preventing similar injuries. Sandy Duran of Ruskin created a campaign called Bullet Free Sky after her 13-year-old son Diego was hit in the head by a bullet while standing in his front yard.

Diego has undergone several surgeries to remove the bullet from his face, two brain aneurysms and a procedure to seal off leaking spinal uid. The non-prot effort was started to raise awareness about the dangers of celebratory gunre. Sandy Duran created a website and produced a public service announcement to get the message out. Floridians worry about falling off scal cliff GAINESVILLE A new University of Florida survey shows a growing pessimism among the states residents worried about the potential effects of Congress failing to deal with the scal cliff. Condence that personal nances will be sound at this time next year dropped two points in the monthly survey while condence in the U.S. economy over the coming year fell six points in the survey of 400 Florida residents by UF researchers. Overall, Floridas consumer condence remained unchanged in December, albeit down slightly from a post-recession peak in September. Improving home sales and rising home values, declining gas prices and a resilient stock market offered the good news in the report along with trends that state revenues may be higher than estimated for the rst time in several years. Police nd kidnapped Pensacola mans body PENSACOLA Police say a man who was kidnapped from his apartment on Christmas Eve has been found dead in a wooded area less than a mile from his Pensacola apartment. The body of Torrance Top Cat Hackworth was found Wednesday following an anonymous tip to police. The Pensacola News Journal reports four or ve men forced their way into Hackworths girlfriends apartment on Monday. Hackworth was beaten, bound, gagged and thrown into the trunk of a car that was later found submerged in Pensacola Bay. Police say the crime was drug-related.

Three or four men entered an apartment and shot one man shot in the foot, the other in the stomach. Cops: Thief cuts power, robs business LAKE CITY Authorities say a man shut off the electricity to the Internet Cafe in Lake City before robbing it early on Christmas Eve. The Gainesville Sun reports that when the power went out just after midnight Monday, an employee went outside to check the breaker. Thats when the suspect entered the building and went to the ofce.

Woman burglary suspect tries to swim to freedom WEEKI WACHEE Sheriffs deputies in Hernando County say a string of burglaries may have ended when a suspect was captured while trying to swim to freedom. Deputies say they caught 21-year-old Chelsea Lane late last week after a homeowner saw her trying to break in and gave chase. Lane jumped into a canal off the Weeki Wachee River and tried to backstroke to the other side. Authorities were waiting on the other side to take her to jail.

Much of it was dumped on area streets and lawns. In one case, mail from one home was stuffed into a neighbors mailbox. In other cases, mail from one subdivision was dumped on the ground in a different subdivision. Investigators arent sure if a thief or thieves kept anything or what their motive might be. They have not yet ruled out the possibility that it was a mean holiday prank.

Heres the rst paragraph of my last years column Democracy Is Impossible: After Moammar Gadha s downfall as Libyas tyrannical ruler, politicians and experts in the U.S. and elsewhere, including French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe, are saying that his death marked the end of 42 years of tyranny and the beginning of democracy in Libya. Sen. Chris Coons, D-Del., said Gadha s death represented an opportunity for Libya to make a peaceful and responsible transition to democracy. House Speaker John Boehner, ROhio, said, Now it is time for Libyas Transitional National Council to show the world that it will respect the rights of all Libyans (and) guide the nation to democracy. German Chancellor Angela Merkel said that Libya must now quickly make further determined steps in the direction of democracy. Its good to have hope, but if were going to be realistic, theres little chance for Middle East emergence of what we in the West call democracy. Almost a year ago, both Egyptians and Westerners welcomed and celebrated the downfall of three decades of Egyptian dictator Hosni Mubaraks tyrannical rule. It was called an Arab Spring. A year later, Egyptians are once again taking to the streets, this time protesting the tyrannical acts of President Mohamed Morsi, who represents the vision and ideological orientation of the Muslim Brotherhood. The Muslim Brotherhoods goal has always been to impose Shariah law. Egyptian tyranny hasnt been eliminated; its form has changed. Syrian President Bashar al-Assads dictatorship is now being challenged by a hodgepodge of armed resistance groups nominally united as the Free Syrian Army. Speaking for our nation, last year President Obama said, The United States has been inspired by the Syrian peoples pursuit of a peaceful transition to democracy. They have braved ferocious brutality at the hands of their government. Is al-Assads downfall in any way more likely to produce democracy than Gadha s downfall or Mubaraks downfall? Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is optimistic in saying the rebel protest shows the strong desire of the Syrian people ... for a Syria that is democratic, just and inclusive. The human experience should have taught us that just getting rid of a particular dictatorship is only half the struggle. We must always ask whats going to replace it. The 1917 Russian revolution got rid of the Czars only to be replaced by the far greater brutality of the Bolsheviks under Joseph Stalin and his successors. In China, Chiang Kai-sheks dictatorial rule was replaced by Mao Tse-tungs unprecedented barbarity, which became responsible for the deaths of 76 million Chinese. Cubas Fulgencio Batistas dictatorship was replaced with that of Fidel Castro. The injustices of Western colonialism in Africa were replaced with homegrown brutal dictators who murdered their citizens. In most countries in the Middle East, the collection of human rights that Westerners know as personal liberty is nonexistent. According to Freedom Houses 2011 Freedom in the World survey, as well as Amnesty Internationals annual report for 2011, most North African and Middle Eastern countries are ranked either repressive or not free. Moreover, I believe theres little prospect for liberty and whatever the West tries to promote in terms of liberty is doomed to failure and disappointment. The fact of the matter is that nations in the Middle East do not share the cultural and philosophical foundations of the West that created its respect for the rule of law and private property rights. What should the West do about the gross violations of human rights so prevalent in North Africa, the Middle East and elsewhere? My short answer is: mind our own business and only intervene when there are direct threats to our national defense or economic interests. Otherwise, what they want to do to one another is none of our business. Walter E. Williams is a professor of economics at George Mason University. Page 8 www.srpressgazette.com Saturday, December 29, 2012 A Section O PINION Middle East democracy It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way So, thats the way Charles Dickens began his classic A Tale of Two Cities. While the 1859 story centers on details of life leading up to the French Revolution, a duality of the times is certainly present today. As in Dickens time, we now nd ourselves at cross purpose. 2012 was the best of times. It was the rst year in several in which people began to feel a bit better about the economy. Each month, we heard of more people returning to the workforce. Alas, 2012 was also the worst of times. The world watched as the Greek economy teetered on the verge of collapse. Other economies werent much better. Americas political system reached an all-time low ... mired in such partisanship that virtually nothing was moving out of either house. Such inaction the year before had led Uncle Sam to see his credit rating lowered for the rst time in history. 2012 was the age of wisdom. Suddenly, groups, individuals and even television shows seemed to open their arms to understanding and to the acceptance of their brothers regardless of the many things that made them different. 2012 was the age of foolishness. Just how many times did we hear of mentally troubled individuals taking a weapon and turning it on people they didnt even know? In Norcross, Ga., a man asked to leave the family spa left and returned with a gun. He shot his sisters, their husbands and then himself. In Chardon, Ohio, a 17year-old walked into a school cafeteria and killed three. In Oakland, Calif., a university drop-out returned, lined people up against the wall and started shooting. Seven were killed. Of course, there was the strange incident of the Dark Knight Rises movie. James Holmes entered the theatre and began shooting. Twelve were killed, 58 injured. And, most recently, there was the Sandy Hook shooting in which at least 27 died. These just scratch the surface. 2012 was the epoch of belief. After years of internet access, Americans suddenly found the ability to research almost anything and have results in front of their eyes within seconds. Alas, the world quickly learned anyone can post anything on the internet and just because something is read there, does not make it so. Alas, 2012 was also the epoch of incredulity. Americans joined hands to help those hit by a New England perfect storm, those affected across the globe by a year that just seemed to sling one disaster after another. Undaunted, Americans joined hands to help. It was truly a season of light. Yet people still clung to ancient prophecies. Many were certain the world would end on December 21. It was another season of darkness. 2012 was the spring of hope. Citizens looked for silver linings in almost every news story. Surely, we all told ourselves, prosperity must be just around the corner. Yet, it was not. As election season neared, and hope truly lifted, the people found little more than typical political posturing. That spring of hope led to a winter of despair. In 2012, we had everything: the war in Iraq ended, the war in Afghanistan was winding down. Osama bin Laden was killed, Moammar Gadda was ousted, and a man even managed to parachute to earth from outer space. In 2012, we had nothing before us. Despite all the good news, many Americans could not make it past the fact that the economy remained mired in the mud. Iran was still playing with nukes and North Korea still managed to re a test rocket. That brings us to the going to Heaven or Hell part of Dickens opening paragraph. That portion of this tale of two cities has yet to be written. That portion depends on each of us. History shows people have a way of ful lling their own prophecies. If we believe the worst will happen, it usually does. On the other hand, theres no limit to the power of positive thinking. Given all these facts, we think it is obvious what is incumbent upon each of us in 2013: Expect the best, give our best and never accept anything less than this. Believe in ourselves, believe in each others. Even if we die having never reached this goal, its one worth the effort. If we do all this, perhaps we can end 2013 by reminding ourselves of the CLOSING line of that same Dickens work: It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest that I go to than I have ever known.

OUR VIEW COLUMNIST MINORITY VIEWPOINT Walter Williams Saturday, 11 p.m. Yes, I think its time for prayer and to help (not understood) what working we do to heal the country. We need to heal the country with love and get along with our neighbors and friends. And help one another and help even the strange person that we see in the street. The local homeless are hungry. We need to give a little bit more, even if the poor people, like we are, were not poor, but middle class. Our grandchildren and great grandchildren need out help. But I say we can still stretch a little bit and give to the needy. And may (not understood) help the mission too, you know, and get along with everybody and not jump right away on anything. You know, just take the things that is real dangerous from the peoples hands so they dont hurt anybody that way the mission in the world not be so poor in (not understood) with pain. With a lot of pain that is going on right now we have to heal the country. And maybe we can help our president. To help him, too, and pray for him. Alright, not everything is us, us, us. Thank you. Have a nice Christmas and Happy New Year. Monday, 8:08 a.m. Yes, this is for everyone that took the time to give or donate to the needy this holiday season. You are very much appreciated. Most of us trust that the organization or group we donate will ensure these gifts from the heart will be distributed appropriately. For the most part they are, but it truly saddens me that we still have those with such low morals and that are not less fortunate actively pursue these caring donations. These donations are for the needy, not for the greedy. You should be ashamed of yourself for taking charity from those who have fallen on hard times and from those who have the heart to share. Having knowledge of this happening I will be giving my gifts and donations next year directly to the shelters, individuals and families. I hope others will practice this next year so that we can ensure our sharing falls into the hands that truly need them. Thank you. Monday 10:03 a.m. The SRPG on 12/22/12 didnt have the tide report published. The tide report is convenient and useful to those of us that still sh rather than hunt. It would be appreciated to have the tide report consistent in each publication of the Press Gazette. Thank you. Monday 12:54 p.m. Im reading the Press Gazette and I understand that the Press Gazette is trying to be geared toward hometown. What I would like to know is when you have a letter to the editor or the speak out, why arent the questions and concerns directed to responsible parties for some type of reply? Thank you. SPEAK OUT

Page 9 www.srpressgazette.com Saturday, December 29, 2012 OP-ED www.srpressgazette.com By STEPHEN GRAY WALLACE With many kids gearing up for a holiday at home, their parents may soon be wrestling with the question of the season, naughty or nice? In making the calculation about their teenagers behavior, its a good question and a fair point. The answer lies in the fact that much of what adolescents think and do, by developmental design, walks the line between naughty and nice or at least normal. What does that mean? At a time of breathtaking physical and psychosocial development, teens are charged with accomplishing three critical tasks: establishing an identity of their own; becoming more independent from their parents; and forging more adult-like relationships with peers. In the aggregate, their progress on these tasks forms a young persons sense of self, a harbinger of decision-making, con dence, and overall mental health. According to Teens Today research conducted by SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions), high Sense of Self (SOS) teens are more likely to avoid alcohol and drug use, while low Sense of Self teens are more likely to use alcohol and harder drugs such as ecstasy and cocaine. In addition, high SOS teens are more likely than their low SOS counterparts to report feeling smart, successful, responsible and con dent. On the mental health side of the ledger, low SOS teens are more likely than high SOS teens to report regular feelings of stress and depression. Signi cantly, there is a parental overlay that offers guidance for moms and dads everywhere. For example, 62 percent of teens with a high SOS report that their relationships with their parents make them feel good about themselves, while only about one-third of low SOS teens report the same. In addition, teens with a high SOS report overwhelmingly that they feel respected by their parents (93 percent) and close to their parents (85 percent), while teens with a low SOS report signi cantly different levels of respect (8 percent) and closeness (12 percent). In other words, parents have skin in the game. Understanding the relationship between each developmental task and behavior likely to accompany it is important, as is supporting the progress of our teens on their developmental journey. Identity: As young people seek to answer the question Who am I?, they regularly and sometimes frequently try on different roles, which in turn changes their behavior and may make them appear to be strangers on any given day. Independence: A drive toward independence dictates that our teens push us away, or at least hold us at arms length. Paradoxically, they need us more now than at any other time during the lifespan besides early infancy. Peer Relationships: The peer group is paramount, and teens often lter through it what they hear from us. Even so, we are the number one reason our teens make good choices. Wallace serves as senior advisor for policy, research and education at SADD and is an associate research professor and director of the Center for Adolescent Research and Education (CARE) at Susquehanna University. He has broad experience as a school psychologist and adolescent/family counselor. Special to Press Gazette Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi and Julie L. Jones, executive director of the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, are teaming up to promote sober driving during the holiday season and throughout the year. Bondi sponsored a resolution at todays Cabinet meeting that recognizes December as Drunk and Drugged Driving (3D) Prevention Month to promote safe driving as many will be traveling to celebrate the holidays with loved ones. The Attorney General, Gov. Rick Scott, Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater and Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam signed the resolution. December is National Drunk and Drugged Driving Prevention Month, and I encourage Floridians to act responsibly this holiday season, said Bondi. Those who drive under the influence endanger everyone on the road and will go to jail. The National Highway Traf c Safety Administration nds fatalities in crashes that involve one or more impaired drivers appear to increase signi cantly during the Christmas and New Years Day holiday period and for thousands of families across Florida, the holiday season brings a somber reminder of the loved ones they lost to an impaired driver. Last year more than 1,100 people lost their lives in crashes where alcohol or drugs were involved or suspected, and thousands more were injured, said Jones. Any number more than zero is unacceptable for deaths that can be prevented, which is why we have partnered with Attorney General Bondi and other safety partners to promote driving safe and sober now and throughout the year. The Florida Highway Patrol, a division within DHSMV, joins law enforcement organizations across the nation this month to remove impaired drivers from the roadways. The Patrol, with local law enforcement agencies, will conduct sobriety checkpoints and aggressively enforce Floridas DUI laws. FHP will participate in the Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over impaired driving crack down between through Jan.1, 2013. We want everyone to enjoy the holidays, but also we want driving on our roadways to be safe, said Col. David Brierton, FHP director. The Patrol will be out in full force to help save lives, and we are not going to tolerate impaired driving. So remember: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over. (more below) These tips will help safeguard your family, your friends and yourself on the road: Plan ahead. If you will be drinking, do not plan on driving. Designate a sober driver or find another safe way home. Even one drink increases the risk of a crash while driving a motor vehicle. If you are impaired, find another way home. Use a taxi, call a sober friend or family member or use public transportation. Be responsible. If someone you know is drinking, do not let them get behind the wheel. If you see an impaired driver on the road, contact law enforcement. Your actions may save someones life, and inaction could cost a life. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles provides highway safety and security through excellence in service, education and enforcement. The Department is leading the way to a safer Florida through the efficient and professional execution of its core mission: the issuance of driver licenses, vehicle tags and titles and operation of the Florida Highway Patrol. Of cials promote sober driving to save lives Resolution designates December as National Drunk and Drugged Driving Prevention Month Here is my annual look back at the year that was: 1. Hillary Clinton denied knowing much about the Benghazi attacks, and then said she had a concussion and could not testify. It made us all feel nostalgic to hear a Clinton denying things again. 2. Hillary and the Obama administration blamed an obscure YouTube video for the murder of our ambassador to Libya. She will prove hard to replace; the ability to quickly blame others is what Barack Obama looks for in a cabinet appointee. 3. John Kerry, who is like Al Gore without the ash and sizzle, was quickly appointed Secretary of State. Democrats did not want to leave the seat vacant for long for fear Clint Eastwood would start yelling at it. With Kerry, the plan is apparently to bore our adversaries into agreeing with us. 4. Tension mounted as an increasingly divided country reacted to the most divisive president ever. Many states in the South petitioned the White House to secede. In the South, Fifty Shades of Grey is not an erotic novel; it is the new Confederate uniform catalogue. On the bright side, if we do secede, Northern sportswriters might eventually get it right in always ranking Notre Dame number one. 5. Arguments for gun control surfaced again after shootings in Oregon, Colorado and Connecticut. We carry more guns in the South, but there is more gun control in the North. I nd it interesting that all the mass shootings are up there. Hmmm. 6. Chicago is our countrys murder capital, and it has strong gun control laws. Gangs kill so many Chicagoans that Mayor Rahm Emanuel runs the only city with a Social Security surplus. Chicagos ban on guns helped it to a 19.4 per 100,000 persons murder rate; the percentage in gun-friendly San Antonio, Texas is 8.6. If you want to see where things are heading here, Hugo Chavez Caracas, Venezuela (which was praised by the UN for its gun control laws) had 130 murders per 100,000 people. 7. Facebook struggled in 2012 and began to develop its own Farmville-type games. Its most successful game to date is Lets see who has gotten fat since high school. 8. Kim Jung Un burnished his evil dictator credentials by pretending to launch a fake intercontinental ballistic missile on the one-year anniversary of his fathers death. If bumbling North Korea does decide to develop a nuke or ICBM, just give it time and the problem will resolve itself Road Runner style. We hear that government sources do not consider Glorious Leader Kim Jong Il dead. The of cial North Korean press says the elder Kim entered a sleeping contest and is clearly still winning. His son was catapulted to of cer status this year and attained the North Korean Armys highest rank: ve feet and two inches tall. 9. The Supreme Court surprised most by ruling in favor of ObamaCare. And Usher won the judges seat on The Voice. Chief Justice John Roberts was considered, but the shows producers felt he was too unreliable. 10. Romney was crushed by the womens vote. He proudly admitted in a debate that he kept a binder of women for job on his staff. Women like nothing better than to be alphabetized. 11. General David Petraeus invited all his generals to a farewell barbecue dinner at his house. He asked them to bring their favorite side dish, and they all brought their biographers. 12. Joe Paternos statue at Penn State was taken down. Perhaps a more tting tribute would be to turn the statue and just make it look in the other way. 13. Slow-motion train wreck Charlie Sheen returned to TV with Anger Management, wherein he only talks about his anger issues and presumes he has no issues with drinking or prescription drugs (primarily because anger does not buy commercial time on the show). 14. Secret Service agents agreed to overpay an escort $800 in Colombia, which would buy you a Ford Escort there. However, when using their own money instead of the taxpayers, they negotiated down to $80. Score another win for free market principles. 15. Democrats want to do something about global warming, the Republicans, and the debt. Perhaps they can compromise and have fans installed on the debt ceiling. 16. Washington battled for a debt ceiling agreement all year. Without borrowing massive amounts of money, they tell us that the federal government would cease to function. This raises the question: how could we tell?

www.srpressgazette.com Saturday, December 29, 2012 A Page 12 Section SPORTS By BILL GAMBLIN 377-4611 | @SRPG_Bill sports@srpressgazette.com Editors note: The Press Gazette is counting down the top sports stories of 2012. Here is No. 9, Bubba Watsons win at the 2012 Masters. I had no doubt he could hit that shot. Ive seen him hit it a hundred times at Tanglewood and the hardpan pine needles didnt affect him one bit. said Murray Rutledge, Bubba Watsons Milton High golf coach. Rutledges words came after watching Watsons second shot at Augusta National. I thought it was going to be really bad. I sat there shielding my eyes, hooping that (Louis) Oosthuizen did not do so good, said Milton resident Becky Paul after she and her daughter Leacy stopped to get a picture by the Bubba Watson sign in Bagdad. People who were in Bagdad were stopping at one of the signs erected outside of the community announcing the town as the home of Watson. Now following Sundays win Bagdad could be looking to erect yet another sign. This is the best news Ive heard, said David Bailly. Bailly says he was one of many who worked with Watsons father, Gerry, to get the existing signs erected. I think we should get to work on (another) sign. This is a good thing and he is a good guy. I am so happy for him. Bailly, who lives across the street from where Watson grew up, remembers when they rst bought the home in 1987. There were golf balls in all over the front yard, Bailly recalls. I am sure he is the one who hit them there. I think (if I were to start digging) I might nd that there are still some buried there. Legend has it that Watson, a University of Georgia graduate, has never had a swing coach or watched video of his swing. When I was Bubbas head coach his senior year, my job was to, basically, get him to the match on time. He took care of the rest, said Rutledge. He knew golf and I tried to talk to him more about how to treat people and how to be humble. Golf swing wise, I didnt give him any advice. He was hitting it pretty far even back then. Even coaches who were preparing teams to face Watson saw the talent evident in the Bagdad natives game. I remember when I was coaching golf at Gulf Breeze, it was already apparent he had the ability to work the ball, said Bill Emerson, Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction in Santa Rosa County. He basically plays golf like the high school kids do today. They see it and try to do it, but Bubba is pretty good at making the shot he sees in his mind. Santa Rosa County is abuzz with excitement since the nal putt on Sunday night that earned Watson the Masters trademark Green Jacket. As soon as I saw it, I had to call my son (Trent Stewart), said Vicki Wolfe. (My son said ) he couldnt believe it. I feel just like Bubba when he said its beyond what I allowed myself to dream. While Milton is happy, Watson isnt the only famous person to walk the hallways of Milton High. This is totally amazing. Little old Milton High School has produced so many pro athletes, said Milton Mayor Guy Thompson. For a small community to have the number of champions we have had is amazing. In addition to Watson, fellow PGA golfers Boo Weekley and Heath Slocum come from Milton. The small municipality also has three former football players in the National Football League including kicker Lawrence Tynes, who won his second Super Bowl Ring when the New York Giants defeated the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis. Another Milton standout was former Olympian Mark Everett. He appeared in three Olympics Seoul, Barcelona and Atlanta while winning 13 track titles in SEC champions from 1986 to 1990. Milton is searching for a way to honor Watson. Right now, its just so new, Thompson said. I am sure we will do something to recognize this accomplishment. 2012 THE YEAR IN SPORTS Bagdad gets another sign Area honors local golfer after national title BILL GAMBLIN | Press Gazette Leacy Paul, left and Becky Paul pause to get their photo taken at the Bagdad sign, which announces it is the hometown of Bubba Watson. Watson won the 2012 Masters at Augusta National in a two-hole playoff over Louis Oosthuizen. AP BUBBA WATSON

LIFESTYLE www.srpressgazette.com Saturday, December 29, 2012 B Page 1 Section By SARA BERRES 630-247-9821 sberres@srpressgazette.co m Since she could remember, Della Scott has been drawing stick figures on blackboards and painting Christmas scenes on glass windows. She says shes always been inspired to paint, but today the 80-year-old Pace residents art portfolio is much more impressive than her elementary school days decades ago. Scott is one of the many artists featured in the Dragonfly Gallery in downtown Milton. She specializes in oils, watercolors and pastels and was self-taught until she moved to the area in 1992 after retiring from federal service and took classes at Pensacola State College. I had done some commission work but I was never able to devote enough time to it, she said. Scotts passion for art comes from the joy each painting brings. Its all-consuming. You start painting and hours go by, she said. Each is a challenge you have to overcome. A motto she learned from class and follows when painting is, See, observe, remember. Some of Scotts paintings are inspired from places she has been, such as her piece titled Colorado River. Others are taken from photos or combinations of multiple photos. And no matter how long she has been painting, Scott says she is still learning from other local artists in the Dragonfly Gallery, as well as some of the greatest artists of all time. She is currently working on an oil piece of one of the angels painted on the Sistine Chapel. She is still in the drawing phase and said this piece has been a great challenge. I picked the most beautiful (angel) I could find. They have extremely long legs and the arm is reaching out, toward (the artist), she said. Im learning from the best, from Michelangelo. ABOUT THE GALLERY The Dragon y Gallery is located at 5188 Escambia St., in Milton and is a mission of the Santa Rosa Arts and Culture Foundation. In exchange for displaying their artwork, the Gallery is staffed by the member artists and is open Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The feature room will begin displaying Mary Ellen Shugarts basketry the rst week of January and will change to feature another artist on Jan. 10.

Weekly Offers from Local Businesses Local Events Calendar The best local news coverage By DUSTY RICKETTS 850-315-4448 dricketts@nwfdailynews.com Unemployment rates rose slightly in Okaloosa, Walton and Santa Rosa counties in November, but Florida posted its largest drop in more than 20 years. The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity released its employment report Friday. The states unemployment rate dropped from 8.5 percent in October to 8.1 percent last month. It was the largest drop since October 1992. This is what happens in a slightly improving but tepid economy where you take two steps forward and one step back, said local economist David Goetsch. Thats how our economy is going to be through 2014, at least. So this is the kind of thing youre going to see with the numbers, and I think nationwide were probably going to be stuck above 7 percent for the next two or three years. Locally, weve actually already had some layoffs in the military and the defense sector, and that has affected all three counties, Goetsch said. Statewide, though, construction and house sales are up and its gone up statewide like it should. Walton Countys unemployment rate increased from 5.4 percent in October to 5.5 percent last month, but still had the second lowest jobless rate in the state. Only Monroe County was lower, at 4.7 percent. Okaloosa County had the third lowest unemployment rate in November at 5.9 percent. That was up slightly from its October gure of 5.7 percent. Santa Rosa Countys jobless rate of 7.1 percent also was a slight increase from 7 percent in October. Santa Rosa was tied with Nassau County for the 18th lowest unemployment rate in November. If the scal cliff happens, then all bets are off and everythings going to go way up real fast, Goetsch said. But lets say (Congress) gures out some type of reasonable solution to that and that doesnt happen, then were going to have these small incremental ups and downs for a good while yet. Goetsch said defense contractors are struggling now, and he expects that to continue for the foreseeable future even if the scal cliff crisis gets resolved. He called the defense industry an industry of zero sum gains. If one contractor wins, another loses because the Defense Department is not adding a lot of new contracts, only issuing the ones that had previously been budgeted. L-3 Crestview Aerospace recently received a large contract that will allow it to expand its operations. Goetsch said although that is great for the local area, it is a job another contractor did not receive and is probably laying off staff because of it. Im afraid that throughout the Obama administration theres going to be a lot of uncertainty in the defense community, Goetsch said. His focus is social programs and not defense, and the money has to come from somewhere.

Of cials have not released the identity of the person sought by law enforcement, but the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission issued a statement saying a warrant had been sought and was issued recently. The action came about after a Dec. 10 report from a man living on Indian Ford Road. The complainant told an FWC of cer one of his dogs had been missing since the day before. It looked like the dog had escaped from a fenced-in yard. By LYNNE HOUGHnews@srpressgazette.com A waterfront restaurant is coming to downtown Milton. Paul Kilmartin, owner of Blackwater Bistro, and a partner, purchased the property next to the train trestle south of the Riverwalk Park. They plan to put in an open-air, outdoorsy beach-type restaurant where customers will have access by water as well as by land. It will be nice to be able to pull a boat up and have a sandwich and a beer or a coke, he says. Kilmartin says the Blackwater Bistro, located a block from Riverwalk, will celebrate its 5th anniversary on Jan. 1. The bistro opened following two years of renovation and work by Kilmartin and his wife, Pam. New place to dine coming to MiltonBy SARA BERRES and LYNNE HOUGH630-247-9821 sberres@srpressgazette.com The Milton Housing Authoritys multi-story units at James and Byrom streets will be coming down in the near future. The properties are substandard and need to be repaired, Milton City Manager Brian Watkins said. It is in pretty bad shape. Watkins said the property has issues with the heating, ventilation and air conditioning, as well as with the plumbing and oors. While the property is located inside the city limits, the apartments are actually owned by the housing authority. A board was appointed to manage funds that were received from Housing and Urban Development (HUD). It was the board that rst looked at the issue a year ago. Though crime has occasionally been a problem in the area, Watkins says it was not a deciding factor on whether the housing should be demolished. I did have a conversation with the police chief, Watkins said, and there have not been as many signi cant calls there. There were problems with a party last summer, but mostly it is minor crimes you might nd anywhere. Built more than 30 years ago, Watkins said it is not the only HUD property. Astor Village is another neighborhood owned by HUD, and there are others, including some onestory places near the targeted apartments. Rent vouchers have been given to qualifying families who were living at the multistory units and they have relocated. The units are now vacant. Watkins says meters have been pulled from the property and the demolition company has been chosen. It is likely a matter of days before the apartments will be torn down. Once the apartments are demolished and removed, Watkins said the property will not be left abandoned. One suggestion Ive heard is a retirement facility may go in.Housing units to be razedSee DOG A3 See RESTAURANT A3 Local artist shares passion, tips on painting B1 Gazette Tweet us @srpressgazette and friend us on facebook.com Local artist shares passion, tips on painting B1 RON HARTS YEAR IN REVIEW OPINION, A8 PHOTOS BY SARA BERRES | The Press Gazette Tyler Mabire, 10, Shyler Mabire, 9, and Bryler Mabire, 7, brave the cold wind to play at Carpenters Park with their mother, Rachel Pittman, on Wednesday. By SARA BERRES630-247-9821 sberres@srpressgazette.com There have been three shooting incidents in Santa Rosa County over the past three weeks. The most recent occurred Monday when a Pace man confronted someone attempting to break into his vehicle at his home on Pembrook Place. Sheriffs of cials said the victim heard noises outside his house around 6:30 p.m. and went outside to investigate. He told deputies he found a man wearing all black trying to burglarize his vehicle. As the two began to ght, a second man unknown approached to help the rst man. During the struggle, one of the men pulled a handgun and shot the victim. He was struck in the leg and the nger. Reports say both suspects ed the scene. The victim received help from his family, who were home at the time. Santa Rosa Sheriffs Sgt. Scott Haines said Thursday there was no new information, and no suspects have been located at this time. On Dec. 4, deputies were called to the intersection of Santa Villa Drive and East Avenida de Golf in Pace after receiving reports of several vehicles in the intersection and three to four shots being red. One man driving by the intersection reported his vehicle received a bullet hole through the drivers side window. He was treated for injuries from broken glass. Deputies said the victim was not the intended target, but was in the wrong place at the wrong time. No arrests have been made for the Dec. 4 incident. On Dec. 16, a drive-by shooting was reported in the Skyline area of Milton after two people in a vehicle red at a man in his driveway on Julia Drive. Gregory Omar Johnson, 27, and his 24-year-old girlfriend, Barbara Leann Baggett, were arrested after turning themselves in to police days following the shooting. Witnesses say Johnson leaned out the passenger window of the car Baggett was driving and shot at the victim, who dropped to the ground. He was not injured. The shooting is believed to be in retaliation for Johnsons cousins arrest in Escambia County on Friday.

This re represents the rst candle extinguished on the Keep Your Holidays Bright re safety tree. Santa Rosa Emergency Communications was noti ed of the re in a mobile home at 2:18 p.m. Dec. 22. Crews arrived on scene at 2:20 p.m., and the re was under control by 2:35 p.m. Units from Midway, Gulf Breeze and Holley-Navarre responded.

A second residential structure re represents the second candle to be extinguished on the re safety tree. Santa Rosa County Emergency Communications received a call at 5:54 a.m. Friday reporting a re in the 8400 block of Sevilla Street in Navarre.

Underwriters Laboratories offer the following safety tips when using a space heater: Keep all space heaters at least three feet away from household combustibles. Use space heaters only as a supplementary source of heat. These devices are not intended to replace the homes heating system. Do not use extension cords with space heaters unless absolutely necessary. Inspect the heaters cord periodically to look for frayed wire or damaged insulation. Do not use a space heater with a damaged cord. Check periodically for a secure plug/ outlet t. If the plug becomes very hot, the outlet might need to be replaced by a quali ed technician. This could be the sign of a potential home wiring issue. Heaters should be placed on a at, level surface. Do not place heaters on furniture because they might fall and become damaged or break parts in the heater. Unless the heater is designed for use outdoors or in bathrooms, do not use in damp, wet areas.2 candles extinguished on safety treeThe man found a dead dog near Munson Highway and Indian Ford Road but told of cials the dogs collar was missing.

A deputy estimated the dragging might have gone on for more than two miles. A Santa Rosa Animal Control of cer removed the animals body from the scene. Evidence was obtained at the roadside, and a felony warrant for animal cruelty was sought. The suspect had not been identi ed publicly or arrested yet at press time. DOG from page A1

From The Associated Press3 elected ofcials suspended, chargedSOUTH BAY Three elected ofcials in a small city located at the southern end of Lake Okeechobee have been suspended from ofce after being charged with Sunshine Law violations. The Palm Beach Post reports that Gov. Rick Scott suspended South Bay Mayor Shirley Walker-Turner, vice mayor Linda Johnson and commissioner John Wilson earlier this month. Prosecutors say the ofcials made a behindthe-scenes deal to pay city manager Corey Alston $25,139 for 498 hours in unused vacation pay. Alton has been charged with grand theft and placed on administrative leave. Also, Longtime city attorney Thomas Montgomery abruptly resigned after commissioners accused him of not providing sufcient legal advice on how to avoid Sunshine Law violations. Two commissioners remain in ofce.SeaWorld les to go public with $100 million IPONEW YORK Looks like Shamu may soon be making a splash in the stock market. The company famous for water shows featuring killer whales, dolphins and other animals at SeaWorld said Thursday that it is planning to go public. SeaWorld Entertainment Inc. has led for an initial public offering of stock aimed at raising $100 million. That number is likely to change as the companys bankers gauge interest from investors. From its origins as a Busch Gardens animal park at Anheuser-Buschs Tampa Budweiser brewery, the company has grown to span 11 theme parks housing 67,000 animals. Besides the three SeaWorld parks, the company owns two Busch Gardens parks and Sesame Place, an amusement park based on the childrens TV show Sesame Street. The company warns that its business is dependent on customers willingness to spend on leisure and entertainment which may be a tough proposition in a stillweak U.S. economy. Still, SeaWorlds revenue has risen in the three years that its been owned by private equity rm Blackstone Group LP. The company has looked for ways to stay competitive in the current market, branching out this year with a Saturday morning television show, Sea Rescue, on the ABC network to attract young viewers. Blackstone is expected to sell some of its stock in the IPO but keep a majority stake, SeaWorld said in a ling with the Securities and Exchange Commission. SeaWorld plans to use money raised in the IPO to pay down debt and make a payment to the New York-based rm. Blackstone bought SeaWorld, formerly Busch Entertainment Corp., from beer brewer AnheuserBusch InBev in 2009 for $2.3 billion. The Belgian company was shedding assets to help pay for its $52 billion takeover of St. Louisbased Anheuser-Busch in 2008.Alachua County may put ofcers in elementary schoolsGAINESVILLE Alachua Countys law enforcement may temporarily patrol public elementary schools all day long once classes resume on Jan. 3.

Condence that personal nances will be sound at this time next year dropped two points in the monthly survey while condence in the U.S. economy over the coming year fell six points in the survey of 400 Florida residents by UF researchers. Overall, Floridas consumer condence remained unchanged in December, albeit down slightly from a post-recession peak in September.

Heres the rst paragraph of my last years column Democracy Is Impossible: After Moammar Gadha s downfall as Libyas tyrannical ruler, politicians and experts in the U.S. and elsewhere, including French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe, are saying that his death marked the end of 42 years of tyranny and the beginning of democracy in Libya. Sen. Chris Coons, D-Del., said Gadha s death represented an opportunity for Libya to make a peaceful and responsible transition to democracy. House Speaker John Boehner, ROhio, said, Now it is time for Libyas Transitional National Council to show the world that it will respect the rights of all Libyans (and) guide the nation to democracy. German Chancellor Angela Merkel said that Libya must now quickly make further determined steps in the direction of democracy. Its good to have hope, but if were going to be realistic, theres little chance for Middle East emergence of what we in the West call democracy. Almost a year ago, both Egyptians and Westerners welcomed and celebrated the downfall of three decades of Egyptian dictator Hosni Mubaraks tyrannical rule. It was called an Arab Spring. A year later, Egyptians are once again taking to the streets, this time protesting the tyrannical acts of President Mohamed Morsi, who represents the vision and ideological orientation of the Muslim Brotherhood. The Muslim Brotherhoods goal has always been to impose Shariah law. Egyptian tyranny hasnt been eliminated; its form has changed. Syrian President Bashar al-Assads dictatorship is now being challenged by a hodgepodge of armed resistance groups nominally united as the Free Syrian Army. Speaking for our nation, last year President Obama said, The United States has been inspired by the Syrian peoples pursuit of a peaceful transition to democracy. They have braved ferocious brutality at the hands of their government. Is al-Assads downfall in any way more likely to produce democracy than Gadha s downfall or Mubaraks downfall? Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is optimistic in saying the rebel protest shows the strong desire of the Syrian people ... for a Syria that is democratic, just and inclusive. The human experience should have taught us that just getting rid of a particular dictatorship is only half the struggle. We must always ask whats going to replace it. The 1917 Russian revolution got rid of the Czars only to be replaced by the far greater brutality of the Bolsheviks under Joseph Stalin and his successors. In China, Chiang Kai-sheks dictatorial rule was replaced by Mao Tse-tungs unprecedented barbarity, which became responsible for the deaths of 76 million Chinese. Cubas Fulgencio Batistas dictatorship was replaced with that of Fidel Castro. The injustices of Western colonialism in Africa were replaced with homegrown brutal dictators who murdered their citizens. In most countries in the Middle East, the collection of human rights that Westerners know as personal liberty is nonexistent. According to Freedom Houses 2011 Freedom in the World survey, as well as Amnesty Internationals annual report for 2011, most North African and Middle Eastern countries are ranked either repressive or not free. Moreover, I believe theres little prospect for liberty and whatever the West tries to promote in terms of liberty is doomed to failure and disappointment. The fact of the matter is that nations in the Middle East do not share the cultural and philosophical foundations of the West that created its respect for the rule of law and private property rights. What should the West do about the gross violations of human rights so prevalent in North Africa, the Middle East and elsewhere? My short answer is: mind our own business and only intervene when there are direct threats to our national defense or economic interests. Otherwise, what they want to do to one another is none of our business. Walter E. Williams is a professor of economics at George Mason University. Page 8 www.srpressgazette.comSaturday, December 29, 2012 ASection OPINION Middle East democracyIt was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way So, thats the way Charles Dickens began his classic A Tale of Two Cities. While the 1859 story centers on details of life leading up to the French Revolution, a duality of the times is certainly present today. As in Dickens time, we now nd ourselves at cross purpose. 2012 was the best of times. It was the rst year in several in which people began to feel a bit better about the economy. Each month, we heard of more people returning to the workforce. Alas, 2012 was also the worst of times. The world watched as the Greek economy teetered on the verge of collapse. Other economies werent much better. Americas political system reached an all-time low ... mired in such partisanship that virtually nothing was moving out of either house. Such inaction the year before had led Uncle Sam to see his credit rating lowered for the rst time in history. 2012 was the age of wisdom. Suddenly, groups, individuals and even television shows seemed to open their arms to understanding and to the acceptance of their brothers regardless of the many things that made them different. 2012 was the age of foolishness. Just how many times did we hear of mentally troubled individuals taking a weapon and turning it on people they didnt even know? In Norcross, Ga., a man asked to leave the family spa left and returned with a gun. He shot his sisters, their husbands and then himself. In Chardon, Ohio, a 17year-old walked into a school cafeteria and killed three. In Oakland, Calif., a university drop-out returned, lined people up against the wall and started shooting. Seven were killed. Of course, there was the strange incident of the Dark Knight Rises movie. James Holmes entered the theatre and began shooting. Twelve were killed, 58 injured. And, most recently, there was the Sandy Hook shooting in which at least 27 died. These just scratch the surface. 2012 was the epoch of belief. After years of internet access, Americans suddenly found the ability to research almost anything and have results in front of their eyes within seconds. Alas, the world quickly learned anyone can post anything on the internet and just because something is read there, does not make it so. Alas, 2012 was also the epoch of incredulity. Americans joined hands to help those hit by a New England perfect storm, those affected across the globe by a year that just seemed to sling one disaster after another. Undaunted, Americans joined hands to help. It was truly a season of light. Yet people still clung to ancient prophecies. Many were certain the world would end on December 21. It was another season of darkness. 2012 was the spring of hope. Citizens looked for silver linings in almost every news story. Surely, we all told ourselves, prosperity must be just around the corner. Yet, it was not. As election season neared, and hope truly lifted, the people found little more than typical political posturing. That spring of hope led to a winter of despair. In 2012, we had everything: the war in Iraq ended, the war in Afghanistan was winding down. Osama bin Laden was killed, Moammar Gadda was ousted, and a man even managed to parachute to earth from outer space. In 2012, we had nothing before us. Despite all the good news, many Americans could not make it past the fact that the economy remained mired in the mud. Iran was still playing with nukes and North Korea still managed to re a test rocket. That brings us to the going to Heaven or Hell part of Dickens opening paragraph. That portion of this tale of two cities has yet to be written. That portion depends on each of us. History shows people have a way of ful lling their own prophecies. If we believe the worst will happen, it usually does. On the other hand, theres no limit to the power of positive thinking. Given all these facts, we think it is obvious what is incumbent upon each of us in 2013: Expect the best, give our best and never accept anything less than this. Believe in ourselves, believe in each others. Even if we die having never reached this goal, its one worth the effort. If we do all this, perhaps we can end 2013 by reminding ourselves of the CLOSING line of that same Dickens work: It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest that I go to than I have ever known.

OUR VIEW COLUMNIST MINORITY VIEWPOINTWalter Williams Saturday, 11 p.m.Yes, I think its time for prayer and to help (not understood) what working we do to heal the country. We need to heal the country with love and get along with our neighbors and friends. And help one another and help even the strange person that we see in the street. The local homeless are hungry. We need to give a little bit more, even if the poor people, like we are, were not poor, but middle class. Our grandchildren and great grandchildren need out help. But I say we can still stretch a little bit and give to the needy. And may (not understood) help the mission too, you know, and get along with everybody and not jump right away on anything. You know, just take the things that is real dangerous from the peoples hands so they dont hurt anybody that way the mission in the world not be so poor in (not understood) with pain. With a lot of pain that is going on right now we have to heal the country. And maybe we can help our president. To help him, too, and pray for him. Alright, not everything is us, us, us. Thank you. Have a nice Christmas and Happy New Year.Monday, 8:08 a.m.Yes, this is for everyone that took the time to give or donate to the needy this holiday season. You are very much appreciated. Most of us trust that the organization or group we donate will ensure these gifts from the heart will be distributed appropriately. For the most part they are, but it truly saddens me that we still have those with such low morals and that are not less fortunate actively pursue these caring donations. These donations are for the needy, not for the greedy. You should be ashamed of yourself for taking charity from those who have fallen on hard times and from those who have the heart to share. Having knowledge of this happening I will be giving my gifts and donations next year directly to the shelters, individuals and families. I hope others will practice this next year so that we can ensure our sharing falls into the hands that truly need them. Thank you. Monday 10:03 a.m.The SRPG on 12/22/12 didnt have the tide report published. The tide report is convenient and useful to those of us that still sh rather than hunt. It would be appreciated to have the tide report consistent in each publication of the Press Gazette. Thank you.Monday 12:54 p.m.Im reading the Press Gazette and I understand that the Press Gazette is trying to be geared toward hometown.

Page 9 www.srpressgazette.comSaturday, December 29, 2012 OP-ED www.srpressgazette.comBy STEPHEN GRAY WALLACE With many kids gearing up for a holiday at home, their parents may soon be wrestling with the question of the season, naughty or nice? In making the calculation about their teenagers behavior, its a good question and a fair point. The answer lies in the fact that much of what adolescents think and do, by developmental design, walks the line between naughty and nice or at least normal. What does that mean? At a time of breathtaking physical and psychosocial development, teens are charged with accomplishing three critical tasks: establishing an identity of their own; becoming more independent from their parents; and forging more adult-like relationships with peers. In the aggregate, their progress on these tasks forms a young persons sense of self, a harbinger of decision-making, con dence, and overall mental health. According to Teens Today research conducted by SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions), high Sense of Self (SOS) teens are more likely to avoid alcohol and drug use, while low Sense of Self teens are more likely to use alcohol and harder drugs such as ecstasy and cocaine. In addition, high SOS teens are more likely than their low SOS counterparts to report feeling smart, successful, responsible and con dent. On the mental health side of the ledger, low SOS teens are more likely than high SOS teens to report regular feelings of stress and depression. Signi cantly, there is a parental overlay that offers guidance for moms and dads everywhere. For example, 62 percent of teens with a high SOS report that their relationships with their parents make them feel good about themselves, while only about one-third of low SOS teens report the same. In addition, teens with a high SOS report overwhelmingly that they feel respected by their parents (93 percent) and close to their parents (85 percent), while teens with a low SOS report signi cantly different levels of respect (8 percent) and closeness (12 percent). In other words, parents have skin in the game. Understanding the relationship between each developmental task and behavior likely to accompany it is important, as is supporting the progress of our teens on their developmental journey. Identity: As young people seek to answer the question Who am I?, they regularly and sometimes frequently try on different roles, which in turn changes their behavior and may make them appear to be strangers on any given day. Independence: A drive toward independence dictates that our teens push us away, or at least hold us at arms length. Paradoxically, they need us more now than at any other time during the lifespan besides early infancy. Peer Relationships: The peer group is paramount, and teens often lter through it what they hear from us. Even so, we are the number one reason our teens make good choices.

He has broad experience as a school psychologist and adolescent/family counselor.Special to Press Gazette Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi and Julie L. Jones, executive director of the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, are teaming up to promote sober driving during the holiday season and throughout the year. Bondi sponsored a resolution at todays Cabinet meeting that recognizes December as Drunk and Drugged Driving (3D) Prevention Month to promote safe driving as many will be traveling to celebrate the holidays with loved ones. The Attorney General, Gov. Rick Scott, Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater and Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam signed the resolution. December is National Drunk and Drugged Driving Prevention Month, and I encourage Floridians to act responsibly this holiday season, said Bondi. Those who drive under the influence endanger everyone on the road and will go to jail. The National Highway Traf c Safety Administration nds fatalities in crashes that involve one or more impaired drivers appear to increase signi cantly during the Christmas and New Years Day holiday period and for thousands of families across Florida, the holiday season brings a somber reminder of the loved ones they lost to an impaired driver. Last year more than 1,100 people lost their lives in crashes where alcohol or drugs were involved or suspected, and thousands more were injured, said Jones. Any number more than zero is unacceptable for deaths that can be prevented, which is why we have partnered with Attorney General Bondi and other safety partners to promote driving safe and sober now and throughout the year. The Florida Highway Patrol, a division within DHSMV, joins law enforcement organizations across the nation this month to remove impaired drivers from the roadways. The Patrol, with local law enforcement agencies, will conduct sobriety checkpoints and aggressively enforce Floridas DUI laws. FHP will participate in the Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over impaired driving crack down between through Jan.1, 2013. We want everyone to enjoy the holidays, but also we want driving on our roadways to be safe, said Col. David Brierton, FHP director. The Patrol will be out in full force to help save lives, and we are not going to tolerate impaired driving. So remember: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over. (more below) These tips will help safeguard your family, your friends and yourself on the road: Plan ahead. If you will be drinking, do not plan on driving. Designate a sober driver or find another safe way home. Even one drink increases the risk of a crash while driving a motor vehicle. If you are impaired, find another way home. Use a taxi, call a sober friend or family member or use public transportation. Be responsible. If someone you know is drinking, do not let them get behind the wheel. If you see an impaired driver on the road, contact law enforcement. Your actions may save someones life, and inaction could cost a life. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles provides highway safety and security through excellence in service, education and enforcement. The Department is leading the way to a safer Florida through the efficient and professional execution of its core mission: the issuance of driver licenses, vehicle tags and titles and operation of the Florida Highway Patrol. Of cials promote sober driving to save livesResolution designates December as National Drunk and Drugged Driving Prevention Month Here is my annual look back at the year that was: 1. Hillary Clinton denied knowing much about the Benghazi attacks, and then said she had a concussion and could not testify. It made us all feel nostalgic to hear a Clinton denying things again. 2. Hillary and the Obama administration blamed an obscure YouTube video for the murder of our ambassador to Libya. She will prove hard to replace; the ability to quickly blame others is what Barack Obama looks for in a cabinet appointee. 3. John Kerry, who is like Al Gore without the ash and sizzle, was quickly appointed Secretary of State. Democrats did not want to leave the seat vacant for long for fear Clint Eastwood would start yelling at it. With Kerry, the plan is apparently to bore our adversaries into agreeing with us. 4. Tension mounted as an increasingly divided country reacted to the most divisive president ever. Many states in the South petitioned the White House to secede. In the South, Fifty Shades of Grey is not an erotic novel; it is the new Confederate uniform catalogue. On the bright side, if we do secede, Northern sportswriters might eventually get it right in always ranking Notre Dame number one. 5. Arguments for gun control surfaced again after shootings in Oregon, Colorado and Connecticut. We carry more guns in the South, but there is more gun control in the North. I nd it interesting that all the mass shootings are up there. Hmmm. 6. Chicago is our countrys murder capital, and it has strong gun control laws. Gangs kill so many Chicagoans that Mayor Rahm Emanuel runs the only city with a Social Security surplus. Chicagos ban on guns helped it to a 19.4 per 100,000 persons murder rate; the percentage in gun-friendly San Antonio, Texas is 8.6. If you want to see where things are heading here, Hugo Chavez Caracas, Venezuela (which was praised by the UN for its gun control laws) had 130 murders per 100,000 people. 7. Facebook struggled in 2012 and began to develop its own Farmville-type games. Its most successful game to date is Lets see who has gotten fat since high school. 8. Kim Jung Un burnished his evil dictator credentials by pretending to launch a fake intercontinental ballistic missile on the one-year anniversary of his fathers death. If bumbling North Korea does decide to develop a nuke or ICBM, just give it time and the problem will resolve itself Road Runner style. We hear that government sources do not consider Glorious Leader Kim Jong Il dead. The of cial North Korean press says the elder Kim entered a sleeping contest and is clearly still winning. His son was catapulted to of cer status this year and attained the North Korean Armys highest rank: ve feet and two inches tall. 9. The Supreme Court surprised most by ruling in favor of ObamaCare. And Usher won the judges seat on The Voice. Chief Justice John Roberts was considered, but the shows producers felt he was too unreliable. 10. Romney was crushed by the womens vote. He proudly admitted in a debate that he kept a binder of women for job on his staff. Women like nothing better than to be alphabetized. 11. General David Petraeus invited all his generals to a farewell barbecue dinner at his house. He asked them to bring their favorite side dish, and they all brought their biographers. 12. Joe Paternos statue at Penn State was taken down. Perhaps a more tting tribute would be to turn the statue and just make it look in the other way. 13. Slow-motion train wreck Charlie Sheen returned to TV with Anger Management, wherein he only talks about his anger issues and presumes he has no issues with drinking or prescription drugs (primarily because anger does not buy commercial time on the show). 14. Secret Service agents agreed to overpay an escort $800 in Colombia, which would buy you a Ford Escort there. However, when using their own money instead of the taxpayers, they negotiated down to $80. Score another win for free market principles. 15. Democrats want to do something about global warming, the Republicans, and the debt. Perhaps they can compromise and have fans installed on the debt ceiling. 16. Washington battled for a debt ceiling agreement all year. Without borrowing massive amounts of money, they tell us that the federal government would cease to function. This raises the question: how could we tell?

www.srpressgazette.comSaturday, December 29, 2012 APage 12Section SPORTSBy BILL GAMBLIN377-4611 | @SRPG_Bill sports@srpressgazette.com Editors note: The Press Gazette is counting down the top sports stories of 2012. Here is No. 9, Bubba Watsons win at the 2012 Masters. I had no doubt he could hit that shot. Ive seen him hit it a hundred times at Tanglewood and the hardpan pine needles didnt affect him one bit. said Murray Rutledge, Bubba Watsons Milton High golf coach. Rutledges words came after watching Watsons second shot at Augusta National. I thought it was going to be really bad. I sat there shielding my eyes, hooping that (Louis) Oosthuizen did not do so good, said Milton resident Becky Paul after she and her daughter Leacy stopped to get a picture by the Bubba Watson sign in Bagdad. People who were in Bagdad were stopping at one of the signs erected outside of the community announcing the town as the home of Watson. Now following Sundays win Bagdad could be looking to erect yet another sign. This is the best news Ive heard, said David Bailly. Bailly says he was one of many who worked with Watsons father, Gerry, to get the existing signs erected. I think we should get to work on (another) sign. This is a good thing and he is a good guy. I am so happy for him. Bailly, who lives across the street from where Watson grew up, remembers when they rst bought the home in 1987. There were golf balls in all over the front yard, Bailly recalls. I am sure he is the one who hit them there. I think (if I were to start digging) I might nd that there are still some buried there. Legend has it that Watson, a University of Georgia graduate, has never had a swing coach or watched video of his swing. When I was Bubbas head coach his senior year, my job was to, basically, get him to the match on time. He took care of the rest, said Rutledge. He knew golf and I tried to talk to him more about how to treat people and how to be humble. Golf swing wise, I didnt give him any advice. He was hitting it pretty far even back then. Even coaches who were preparing teams to face Watson saw the talent evident in the Bagdad natives game. I remember when I was coaching golf at Gulf Breeze, it was already apparent he had the ability to work the ball, said Bill Emerson, Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction in Santa Rosa County. He basically plays golf like the high school kids do today. They see it and try to do it, but Bubba is pretty good at making the shot he sees in his mind. Santa Rosa County is abuzz with excitement since the nal putt on Sunday night that earned Watson the Masters trademark Green Jacket. As soon as I saw it, I had to call my son (Trent Stewart), said Vicki Wolfe. (My son said ) he couldnt believe it. I feel just like Bubba when he said its beyond what I allowed myself to dream. While Milton is happy, Watson isnt the only famous person to walk the hallways of Milton High. This is totally amazing. Little old Milton High School has produced so many pro athletes, said Milton Mayor Guy Thompson. For a small community to have the number of champions we have had is amazing. In addition to Watson, fellow PGA golfers Boo Weekley and Heath Slocum come from Milton. The small municipality also has three former football players in the National Football League including kicker Lawrence Tynes, who won his second Super Bowl Ring when the New York Giants defeated the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis. Another Milton standout was former Olympian Mark Everett. He appeared in three Olympics Seoul, Barcelona and Atlanta while winning 13 track titles in SEC champions from 1986 to 1990. Milton is searching for a way to honor Watson. Right now, its just so new, Thompson said. I am sure we will do something to recognize this accomplishment. 2012THE YEAR IN SPORTS Bagdad gets another signArea honors local golfer after national title BILL GAMBLIN | Press GazetteLeacy Paul, left and Becky Paul pause to get their photo taken at the Bagdad sign, which announces it is the hometown of Bubba Watson.

LIFESTYLE www.srpressgazette.comSaturday, December 29, 2012 BPage 1SectionBy SARA BERRES630-247-9821 sberres@srpressgazette.com Since she could remember, Della Scott has been drawing stick figures on blackboards and painting Christmas scenes on glass windows. She says shes always been inspired to paint, but today the 80-year-old Pace residents art portfolio is much more impressive than her elementary school days decades ago. Scott is one of the many artists featured in the Dragonfly Gallery in downtown Milton. She specializes in oils, watercolors and pastels and was self-taught until she moved to the area in 1992 after retiring from federal service and took classes at Pensacola State College. I had done some commission work but I was never able to devote enough time to it, she said. Scotts passion for art comes from the joy each painting brings. Its all-consuming. You start painting and hours go by, she said. Each is a challenge you have to overcome. A motto she learned from class and follows when painting is, See, observe, remember. Some of Scotts paintings are inspired from places she has been, such as her piece titled Colorado River. Others are taken from photos or combinations of multiple photos. And no matter how long she has been painting, Scott says she is still learning from other local artists in the Dragonfly Gallery, as well as some of the greatest artists of all time. She is currently working on an oil piece of one of the angels painted on the Sistine Chapel. She is still in the drawing phase and said this piece has been a great challenge. I picked the most beautiful (angel) I could find. They have extremely long legs and the arm is reaching out, toward (the artist), she said. Im learning from the best, from Michelangelo. ABOUT THE GALLERY The Dragon y Gallery is located at 5188 Escambia St., in Milton and is a mission of the Santa Rosa Arts and Culture Foundation. In exchange for displaying their artwork, the Gallery is staffed by the member artists and is open Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The feature room will begin displaying Mary Ellen Shugarts basketry the rst week of January and will change to feature another artist on Jan. 10.

Weekly Offers from Local Businesses Local Events Calendar The best local news coverage By DUSTY RICKETTS850-315-4448 dricketts@nwfdailynews.com Unemployment rates rose slightly in Okaloosa, Walton and Santa Rosa counties in November, but Florida posted its largest drop in more than 20 years. The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity released its employment report Friday. The states unemployment rate dropped from 8.5 percent in October to 8.1 percent last month. It was the largest drop since October 1992. This is what happens in a slightly improving but tepid economy where you take two steps forward and one step back, said local economist David Goetsch. Thats how our economy is going to be through 2014, at least. So this is the kind of thing youre going to see with the numbers, and I think nationwide were probably going to be stuck above 7 percent for the next two or three years. Locally, weve actually already had some layoffs in the military and the defense sector, and that has affected all three counties, Goetsch said. Statewide, though, construction and house sales are up and its gone up statewide like it should. Walton Countys unemployment rate increased from 5.4 percent in October to 5.5 percent last month, but still had the second lowest jobless rate in the state. Only Monroe County was lower, at 4.7 percent. Okaloosa County had the third lowest unemployment rate in November at 5.9 percent. That was up slightly from its October gure of 5.7 percent. Santa Rosa Countys jobless rate of 7.1 percent also was a slight increase from 7 percent in October. Santa Rosa was tied with Nassau County for the 18th lowest unemployment rate in November. If the scal cliff happens, then all bets are off and everythings going to go way up real fast, Goetsch said. But lets say (Congress) gures out some type of reasonable solution to that and that doesnt happen, then were going to have these small incremental ups and downs for a good while yet. Goetsch said defense contractors are struggling now, and he expects that to continue for the foreseeable future even if the scal cliff crisis gets resolved. He called the defense industry an industry of zero sum gains. If one contractor wins, another loses because the Defense Department is not adding a lot of new contracts, only issuing the ones that had previously been budgeted. L-3 Crestview Aerospace recently received a large contract that will allow it to expand its operations. Goetsch said although that is great for the local area, it is a job another contractor did not receive and is probably laying off staff because of it. Im afraid that throughout the Obama administration theres going to be a lot of uncertainty in the defense community, Goetsch said.
