B4 TABLE OF CONTENTS Volume 105 Issue 5 Jim Fletcher Publisher 623-2120 news@srpressgazette.com By LYNNE HOUGH news@srpressgazette.com A Pace man riding a Harley Davidson motorcycle is in critical condition after a motor vehicle crash Saturday. Philip J. Melton, 47, was taken to Baptist Hospital from the scene of the accident at Lillian Highway and Cordova Road, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. The accident happened around 2 p.m. Melton was injured when a 1989 Ford van driven by Stephen C. Quates, 50, Foley, Ala., violated his right of way and hit the Harley, according to FHP reports. Melton was knocked to the ground, and the van came to rest on top of the motorcycle. The accident happened at the driveway of the Crazy Horse Cafe. Trooper C. Mitchell said in his report that Quates was driving the van eastbound on Lillian Highway, while the Harley was traveling westbound. Quates tried a left turn into the cafe driveway, resulting in the right front of the van striking the motorcycle on the left side, knocking Melton off the bike. The van came to rest on top of the bike. Quates was arrested and charged with driving under the in uence; violation of right-of-way; and no valid drivers license. Reports indicate Melton was wearing a helmet and was not under the in uence of alcohol. Hunt club president charged with killing dog By LYNNE HOUGH news@srpressgazette.com The president of a local hunt club was arrested last month on charges of shooting a dog and then dragging the animal 2 miles down a country road, tied by a rope to his vehicle. Originally charged with a felony, James Sousa, 48, was arrested on a warrant for animal cruelty. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Of cer Doug Berryman said he was noti ed last week the felony charge was being changed to a misdemeanor by the State Attorneys Of ce. He said whether the animal suffered is a determining factor in deciding the level of a charge. Sousa is the president of the Cabin Creek Hunt Club. Berryman said Sousa shot the hunting dog in the shoulder with a Remington .270 ri e, killing the dog on or around Dec. 10. Of cials believe the dog was dead when Sousa tied it to his vehicle. A blood trail was left during the dragging, By LYNNE HOUGH news@srpressgazette.com Last week, Milton Police Chief Greg Brand announced the Milton Skate Park might be closed down for a month at a time if skaters dont start wearing helmets while at the park. In response to the citys threat, one skater has created a Facebook page in an effort to unite those who use the park. The page already is getting a lot of attention from local skaters. Milton Park, We Live to Skate is the page created by Milton High School graduate Jason Goings, 20. He said the skate park meant a lot to him growing up, and he doesnt want to see the closings happen. I honestly dont know what I would have done if I didnt have that skate park to go to, and I know many of the skaters there believe it as well because I have seen them there pretty much every day for years, Goings said. Goings said it is his intention to Get the voice of everyone at the skate park in one place to give people an idea how the skate park really is and how much it means to us. He said he personally does not believe it should be the decision of city of cials whether helmets are worn especially END OF AN ICON?

City Manager is Edwin Buz Eddy Homeless coalition seeks volunteers for count The EscaRosa Coalition On the Homeless is looking for volunteers to assist with the annual 2013 U Count Point-in-Time Homeless Survey. The survey will be conducted over a 24-hour period, from 10 a.m. Jan. 24 to 10 a.m. Jan. 25. ECOH is charged with counting homeless individuals in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties. The purpose of the U Count survey is to determine the needs and extent of the local homeless population, including sheltered and unsheltered men, women and children. ECOH then can match their needs against the services offered in the community. Florida is ranked one of the highest in homeless veterans. As military men and women leave the service, the 2013 count is especially important, as it will provide information ECOH needs to better serve them. Volunteers are asked to serve as active participants in the counting process. No specic experience is required to serve as a volunteer (training will be provided), but compassion and a desire to help individuals who are homeless are essential. ECOH needs a minimum of 150 volunteers to serve a twoto four-hour shift at area soup kitchens, churches, food pantries and other locations where homeless gather. In conjunction with U-Count, ECOH will have its rst annual U-Count Homeless Services Day to provide homeless individuals and families the services and benets they need, all in one place, on one day. Volunteers will be on hand to help secure temporary housing, sign people up for veteran or public benets, provide employment counseling and access to medical care, give haircuts, a hot meal and more. The event will take place at ECOHs main ofce, 2601 W. Strong St., Pensacola. To help, send donations to: EscaRosa Coalition On the Homeless, P.O. Box 17222 Pensacola, FL 32522, or by PayPal at www.ecoh. org/. Please place on the memo line: U-Count Homeless Services Day. Supplies also are needed for the U-Count Homeless Services Day from business and individuals to help those in need. Needed items include socks, gloves, Chapstick, small LED ashlights, dufe bags and backpacks, ponchos, candles, toilet paper, personal body products, mens clothing and blankets. For more information, call Seren Keiek, project manager, at 232-9548.

GEORGETOWN, S.C. In the wake of an uninspired and cowardly climax to the self-in icted drama of the scal cliff, Washington is poised for its sequel: raising the debt ceiling. This is yet another phony crisis in a series created, and then magnanimously solved, by an increasingly inept Washington. Its another case where I wonder if it is more detrimental to taxpayers if Congress tries to do something or fails to. I have heard Congressional Democrats addiction to debt compared to calling the plumber who supposedly xed your toilet after it backed up and ooded your home. The same plumber (a.k.a. Congress) is called back out again to x the problem. He decides to raise the ceiling on your house to accommodate the sewage he created, and then he bills you for it again. The complexity and uncertainty of our lobbyist-written tax system continues to sti e economic growth. We have the highest corporate tax rate in the developed world, and we are on a trajectory of spending and dependency similar to that of Greece. Nothing in the scal cliff debacle addressed our real problem spending. In what passes for frugality in Washington, Obama ew on Air Force One back from vacation in Hawaii, and members of Congress ew back to D.C. at the last minute (always cheap around the holidays), to do the nations business. Then Obama returned to Hawaii for more vacation and had the scal cliff bill shipped to him for signature. It was right out of the Obama/Pelosi I Have a Dream Speech, raising taxes on Americans while enjoying a tropical vacation at our expense. Obama wanted to hurry up and tax the rich in America while we still had a few. Rich is now bandied around by Democrats as a derisive term. I am not sure what rich is in America maybe people with one or more at-screen TVs but Democrats now effectively go the podium, point their ngers at anyone successful and say, There he is, lets get him. After saying during the debates they would not accept $1 of tax increase for even $10 of budget cuts, Republicans got $41 of tax increases for $1 of dubious spending cuts jammed down their throats. It has been a tough few years for Republicans. I thought John Boehner was going to lose his Speaker of the House position, maybe even to a Democrat. It is just that bad. The tone in the country continues to bode ill for Republicans. Hollywood continued to do the bidding of the Democrats and was rewarded with a $430 million gift written into the scal cliff bill in the way of a handout. Meanwhile, the most popular movies are Les Miserables, which celebrates mob rule and the uprising of peasants who kill the rich in France, and Django Unchained, in which a freed slave comes back to kill Southern slave owners. The bad news is that one of these lms will win an Oscar for Best Futuristic Documentary. The only bright spot for the Republicans is that Downton Abbey resumed its broadcast season this week. I am hopeful the Republicans, reasoning they cannot be disliked any more than they already are, will summon up enough backbone to cut up the credit card of Washington by not raising the debt ceiling. That way we can prioritize our spending and get our scal house in order. Republicans have to get past thinking the budget for our military, which spends six times more than the next biggest in the world (China) and more than the other top 10 military powers in the world combined, cannot be cut. Republicans might have to settle for invading smaller countries in the future, preferably ones with inexpensive airline service on Southwest Airlines routes so we can save money. Obama and the Democrats are the real problem. Obama cannot stop campaigning, and neither can stop spending. These are the only two modes they know. No matter what happens with our budget, Washington politicians are assured of getting paid under the Americans with Absolutely No Abilities Act.

Someone calls to check on a subscription. Or they call to start a subscription. Either way, when it gets to the address, they note and thats Pace, FL 32571. Technically, there is no Pace, Fla. It is not an incorporated city. Rather, the address is Milton, FL 32571. That address sticks in the throats of people who are proud of Pace and who often take part in the innercounty rivalry between Milton and Pace. Still, the fact remains: Pace is not a city. Should it be? Well, that is a matter of public opinion an opinion that in the past has been, No, it should NOT be a city. Typically, the rst-blush reaction to this question comes from the fact that nobody wants another level of taxation, and those in this City of Pace would certainly have some level of taxation. Still, there are many more things that come with incorporation other than taxation. Cities typically have their own police department, so residents get better law enforcement: both city and county of cers. City residents often enjoy amenities county residents do not. Streetlights and sidewalks are just two examples. Cities are often eligible for grants and public funding to help with special projects. But perhaps the largest reason for incorporation is something that is accepted as a truism: the government is best that governs close to home. In short, would you rather that a law affecting you is passed by your city leaders or those in Washington, D.C.? You see those city leaders every week. You bump into them while shopping. You might even go to church with them. You have access to these people and they, as your neighbor, understand how any law will affect the local citizenry. So, are these potential pluses worth another layer of taxation? Only the public can say. And we believe the public should say. The area most people consider to be Pace would be, if incorporated, the largest city in Santa Rosa. Such a move could wield a great deal of power. In the end, only voters can decide if positives outweigh the negatives. We do believe Pace area voters should be asked this question at least once every two years. Still, such a vote requires a petition, and that requires someone getting behind the effort. How does Pace feel? Is there anyone there who would like to see Pace become its own city?

OVERHEARD ONLINE OUR VIEW COLUMNIST Santa Rosa County a great place to live Thank you, citizens of Santa Rosa County. For eight years I have lived, worked, and shopped here. Health concerns require a move nearer to family. Friendliness, helpfulness and generally good, decent behavior to ones fellow man is the norm here. Only once in eight years have I heard a car horn honk in frustration or impatience. Many times I have seen a customer in a checkout line step aside for a person with only one or two items. And, wow! Stopping for funerals. My job brought me into every yes, every public school classroom in Santa Rosa County. Problems with public education, real or imagined, are not prevalent in Santa Rosa County Public Schools. If you dont believe that, then call a local school principal and arrange to visit one any one, on any day. And visit your public library branch, too. You wont be disappointed in any of them, either. I have patronized numerous local businesses. Without hesitation, I recommend ones from whom I have consistently received competent, quality service and/or products. Among them are Halls Hardware, Majors Home Improvement, Pollocks Air Conditioning, Pinckard Garage Doors, Phil and Dena (barber and stylist on Stewart Street a couple blocks north of the high school), Joshua Durst (CPA), Michael Utke of Edward Jones Investments (of ce on Chumuckla Highway), Debbie Cooper of PenAir Credit Union (Pace branch of ce) and the service department of McKenzie Motors. I also commend the Pace Wal-Mart. While it is a national company, I believe it employs many local people. I have found the management and staff to be courteous, the shelves well stocked and the store well maintained. Ive been to Wal-Mart in many cities. None match yours. A disappointment has been people who exhibit bad behavior behind the wheel while sporting In God We Trust on their license plates. I cringe every time I see one speed, tailgate, run a red light, park in a handicapped spot without the required placard or plate, or toss trash out a window. Having the In God We Trust plate seems a perfect opportunity to lead by example. Conduct that shows consideration for fellow man and for the environment entrusted their care by their God should be automatic. I believe them to be good people, but not all seem conscious of what that license plate denotes. They are the one group with no excuse for not practicing their Sunday behavior every day, in every way. And some additional comments: 1) Bite the tax bullet and build a new courthouse. The issue has been beat to death too much talk over too many years. One is needed. 2) Fund the inter-county bus service again. And expand it to include more stops. It is a relatively small amount of money to help the less fortunate, the ill or injured, and the elderly get to work, keep medical appointments, and go shopping. It would be an example of collective civil, charitable behavior toward ones fellow man that well complements the individual politeness and respect that is already ingrained in this community.

Needed are clothing and shoe donations, bags for guests to carry out their selections and hangers. Reimagine also seeks a youth group or two to sort through the clothing and shoes from 8 10 a.m. and place it on racks.

My name is Kristen, and I am the director of coastal development for United Way of Santa Rosa County. I am excited to be a new columnist here and look forward to sharing with you over the next year. My column is called Living the United Way, and you can look at it as your guide to giving, advocating and volunteering in Santa Rosa County. Today I am writing about the heart of giving and how it affects our community. Every day, we are asked to give. Can you give me a hand? Lets give a round of applause to ... Will you give me a glass of water? Would you like to give to ABC Charity? But how often do we really stop and think about what it truly means to give? Websters Dictionary has many denitions of the word give, but my favorite, and the one I feel best denes the heart of giving, is to enter wholeheartedly into an activity. The activity can be giving our time for a community event, our expertise for a special project, our resources in helping a neighbor or our money to a cause close to us. But when any of these things are done wholeheartedly, we are affecting lives and our community in ways greater than we could ever imagine. It doesnt matter if you can give $1 or $1,000, 10 minutes or 10 hours; when you give of yourself and with a giving heart, the effect will be felt. It is my belief that we are all born with a giving heart. We do not want to see people in pain, in struggle or in need. When we see this, there is an urge inside of us to give. In a 2010 Harvard Business School paper, research suggests generosity seems to generate positive feelings in people, and using resources to help others is consistently associated with greater happiness. Though this study focused on nancial giving, generosity can assume many forms. I believe this principle of happiness extends beyond nancial giving to all forms of giving. We have a community that is full of givers. You might not realize it, but most of the people you interact with on a daily basis have a giving heart. Did you know your Publix cashier gives a portion of her paycheck so those without health care can receive help at the Good Samaritan Clinic? Or that for more than 11 years, Gulf Power employees have given their time at The ARC Santa Rosa with projects such as painting, repairing sheds and creating a nature trail at their facility? Next time you go to the grocery store or pay your power bill, think about the giving hearts of those employees and know that while you might not see their giving, they are having an effect on your community an effect you can make as well by giving wholeheartedly into an activity that speaks to you. Every year, through the 16 agencies United Way helps fund, more than 25 percent of Santa Rosa County is affected directly and many more indirectly. Not just through these agencies, but through the power of our giving hearts, lets make a goal this year that 100 percent of Santa Rosa County be affected in some way through our generosity.

A report led by Berryman says Sousa killed the animal because loose dogs in the area have been running the deer on the property of the hunting club. Reports indicate Sousa told the of cer he heard three dogs running deer but did not see them. He got out of his stand, looking for the dogs and heard them around his camp. He went there, saw one dog walking around, not doing anything and shot the dog from the road. The dog fell dead at the corner of his porch. He got some rope, tied it to the dog and dragged it to Munson Highway at Indian Ford Road. He left the dog there to make a statement to those people who are constantly running dogs illegally on his property, according to the report. The dog was one of three hunting dogs belonging to a man living on Indian Ford Road. The dogs escaped from the pen at home and did not come back. While the owner was looking for his animals, he found the dead dog. SKATE PARK from page A1 when waivers are signed and signage at the park says, skate at your own risk. Some skaters over the age of 18 have questioned why they are being forced to wear helmets. Goings said it is the skill level of the skater, not his age, that makes a difference in whether he falls and if he has learned how to fall. A picture of a police of cer in uniform on a skateboard is posted on the Facebook page with the words, In Denmark, Police skate with you. Goings invited Milton police to skate with the local skaters. There are polls on the page for skaters to offer their opinion, as well as video links and photos of people using the Milton Skate Park. Theres even a message for the city police: Milton PD, listen to what we have to say. Thats the only way its gonna get solved without people going to jail or the only safe haven the kids got going away. Just think. Do you really want all of us, 100+, skating in your streets??? Goings said it is his intention for the Facebook page to open dialogue between those affected by what goes on at the skate park. It appears to be working. Parents and skaters are exchanging information and ideas about the park, including the suggestion that crime is down at the park now that the public housing apartments near the park have closed. Goings said many of the skaters cannot afford the helmets required by city ordinance. He said helmets at the park are a good idea at times, but not all the time. I think we should have helmets at the park, but we shouldnt have to wear them all the time. Skaters know their limits, and even I have put on a helmet when trying something new or hard, he said. Its hard to say whether or not they will ever get rid of the helmet rule or not, but I believe the city should trust us more, Going said. An online petition has been created on the Facebook page. Goings said if there is enough support, the group might take its cause to the Milton City Council. CHARGE from page A1

Local Santa Rosas Press Gazette| A7 Wednesday, January 16, 2013 6012201 6012245 6012770 By DUSTY RICKETTS 863-1111 | @dustyrnwfdn dricketts@nwfdailynews.com MILTON The fate of the some what controversial multipurpose center in East Milton likely will be decided later this month. Though the agenda for the meet ing will not be nalized until the end of this week, Santa Rosa County commissioners are expected to dis cuss the covered arena at their Jan. 22 meeting and vote on the project two days later. County Commissioner Bob Cole, who has saved $1 million from his districts recreation funds for the arena, said part of the controversy over the center stems from confu sion about what it is. In early dis cussions, it was referred to as an equestrian center. However, he said it will be much more than that. This is not an equestrian center. This is a covered arena, Cole said. If youre a horse person, then its an equestrian center. If you like to show dogs, then we can have a dog show. If youre an archer and want to stand up a big archery event and know that if it rains you can use the indoor facility, then its an archery center. This is why we (designed) this building as a multipurpose build ing, he said. The bleachers arent permanently put up, and the corrals for the horses arent a permanent xture. Theyre all things that can move around. The county sought construction bids last year, but commissioners delayed voting on approving a con tract with A.E. New Jr. Inc. at their Dec. 10 meeting because they had too many questions about future funding for the project. A.E. New Jr.s bid originally was scheduled to expire at the end of December, but Cole said it has been extended through the end of January. Since commissioners delayed their decision, the countys Tourist Development Council voted to con tribute $200,000 to the project, and Cole has found a way to save $50,000 in construction costs. Rather than having the contractor purchase all of the supplies and materials, the county will purchase the materi als without having to pay sales tax, Cole said. Theres 50 grand instead of go ing to the state for sales tax can go into the project, he said. If the project is approved at the Jan. 24 meeting, Cole said con struction likely would start within 90 days. The covered arena would be built at the intersection of U.S. Highway 90 and Bobby Brown Road. It would feature a 200-by-300-foot covered pavilion, a judges booth, meeting room and restrooms. Special to the Press Gazette Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola continues to see people sickened by the u outbreak that arrived early in Pensacola this year and has lasted longer than a typical u season. The rst signs of the u outbreak appeared in late October, and the number of cases kept climbing throughout November and December. From Oct. 28 through Jan. 5, Sacred Heart Hospital ran lab tests on 1,923 people who had u-like symptoms. Of those, 546 tested positive for inuenza. Since the beginning of December, the Sacred Heart Urgent Care Center in Pensacola has seen 186 people with u-like symptoms. Prevention Inuenza is thought to spread from one person to another when the infected person coughs or sneezes. There are some things you can to do protect yourself and others, according to Centers for Disease Control. Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it. If you dont have a tissue, CDC suggests you cough or sneeze into your elbow. Be sure to wash the shirt, blouse, jacket, etc. you are wearing as soon as possible. Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. Alcohol-based hands cleaners are also effective. Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread that way. If you get sick, CDC recommends you stay home from work or school and limit contact with others to keep from infecting them. By Stan Kirkland Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission After a year of maintain ing roads, tending to food plots, monitoring game cameras and placing tree stands, hunters are more than ready to deer hunt. But sometimes, the un expected happens and a hunting dog or dogs ven ture onto their property, disrupting their hunt. The question is, what should they do? Under the rules and regulations adopted by the FWC, anyone who chooses to use free-running hounds on private property to pur sue deer or other species must apply for and receive a free dog hunt permit registration for approved lands, and the registration number must be afxed to the collar of each dog used. Additionally, the hunter must be in possession of the dog hunt permit. If the dogs get onto property where they are not permitted or wanted, FWC ofcers will contact the owners of the dogs, who likely will be cited for the violation. However, it is never ap propriate or legal to shoot someones hunting dog that ventures onto prop erty where it is not wanted. Anyone who does so can face criminal animal cru elty charges, be sued in civil court and face paying substantial damages. Any sh or wildlife violation in Florida can be reported to the FWC Wildlife Alert hotline at 888-404-3922. When hunting dogs venture onto the wrong property County expected to discuss covered arena Jan. 22 Flu outbreak reported in Northwest Florida This is a covered arena. If youre a horse person, then its an equestrian center. If you like to show dogs, then we can have a dog show. If youre an archer and want to stand up a big archery event and know that if it rains you can use the indoor facility, then its an archery center. Santa Rosa County Commissioner Bob Cole

LIFESTYLE www.srpressgazette.com Wednesday, January 16, 2013 B Section Page 1 Kids practice reading with furry friends By SARA BERRES (630) 247-9821 sberres@srpressgazette.com The Pace Library had some special guests visit on Saturday to help local kids get some quality reading time. In the back room at the library, Abbey, a 6-year-old Golden Retriever, and Mea, a 3-year-old Toy Poodle, cuddled up next to new friends as they read books like Larabee and The Great Gracie Chase: Stop that Dog! together. Reading Education Assistance Dogs (R.E.A.D.) is a program held at the Pace Library from 9:30-11:30 a.m. the second Saturday of every month and at the Navarre Library from 4-5:30 p.m. the second Wednesday of the month. Kids sign up for a 15-minute time slot to read with a certied therapy dog. The program started at the Pace Library in June, according to Melodie Taylor, the library manager. Kids may be embarrassed to read aloud to a brother or sister, but here its one-onone and they read to the dog. Everyone loves dogs, Taylor said. The program is encouraging kids to be around books. The same two dogs, Abbey and Mea, typically attend the Saturday program. Yvonne Kass, of Milton, is the owner of Abbey. For the past four years. Abbey has been visiting elementary schools and libraries and is certi ed through Delta Society, where she has been screened for temperament, health, attitude, cleanliness and good manners, among other skills. Judy Delano, of Milton, the owner of Mea, the Toy Poodle, also visits nursing homes and childrens hospitals as a certied therapy dog. I have two other dogs at home that couldnt do this, but (Mea) absolutely loves it, Delano said. She loves children. According to the R.E.A.D. program website, www.therapyanimals.org/R.E.A.D.html, therapy animals have documented bene ts with children. Besides improved reading, increased relaxation and lowering of blood pressure, therapy animals also foster safety, intimacy and help kids turn off anger and depression. Emma Taylor, 5, Pace, read to both Abbey and Mea on Saturday. Emmas father, Mike, said shes a huge animal lover. She wants to be a doggy doctor when she grows up, Mike said. After reading with Mea, Emma gave the 5-pound Poodle a few treats and watched her do tricks. And with Abbey, although her long blonde Golden Retriever hair shed on Emmas black shirt and leggings, it didnt stop her from cuddling up next to the dog and rubbing under her chin while reading. Taylor, the library manager, said the R.E.A.D. program is popular at other libraries and wishes more people knew about it. Its something free to do on a Saturday that doesnt involve watching cartoons, she said. WANT TO GO?

Special to the Press Gazette The U.S. Marshals Florida Regional Fugitive Task Force captured a wanted man who is being sought in three counties. The capture came while the task force was conducting surveillance of a home on Saleta Street, and they saw fugitive Antwan Jernell Thomas arrive and go inside. Task force members from Escambia and Santa Rosa counties, aided by patrol and a K9 unit from Escambia, converged on the home around 4 p.m. Once inside, police said Thomas ran from task force ofcers to the back of the house trying get rid of what appeared to be multiple bags of drugs. Thomas, 32, was tackled and taken into custody without any further incident. The discarded bags were recovered and later tested positive for and identied as containing marijuana, powder cocaine and oxycodone pills. The ve bags of marijuana had a total weight of approximately 70 grams; a bag of cocaine contained 2 grams, and another had 5 oxycodone pills. Thomas is wanted in Escambia County for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, possession of a rearm by a convicted felon, grand theft of a rearm and misdemeanor battery. He also is wanted in Okaloosa County for a felony failure to appear on a driving while license suspended charge; and in Douglas County, Ga., for violation of probation stemming from original charges of cocaine and marijuana trafcking. Thomas remains in Escambia County Jail, where additional charges of possession of marijuana, cocaine and oxycodone are pending. Police said another hard, white substance also was recovered that weighed about 494 grams, which is believed to be some sort of synthetic drug. Thomas also is being charged with possession and selling the synthetic substance. In 2012, The U.S. Marshals and their task forces arrested more than 123,000 fugitives. More than 86,000 of them were state and local fugitives, almost 4,000 were homicide suspects and more than 5,000 were violent gang members. Among that number, more than 12,000 were sex offenders.

Hey, this is Dennis. Gun control. Lets look at some of the people in the past, when the citizens no longer had the right to own rearms. Uganda with Idi Amin. Hitler and the Jews. China. Mexico. Cambodia. Russia. American black slaves. Rwanda. Not just 10, 20 or 30 people were killed, but hundreds of millions of people were killed, defenseless and unarmed civilians. The genius of the Second Amendment is to protect citizens from an oppressive government and evil people to keep and bear arms. History has told us to take away arms from the citizens can lead to untold horrors. Thank you. FRIDAY, 8:59 P .M. This is Charles over here off Avalon Boulevard. Ive been complaining for at least 6 months because Panhandle Paving and Grading, theyve made this mess, this cliff that we have to drive across to get into our neighborhood. And I noticed that today, theyve been out there digging up that brand new asphalt on the highway, on Avalon Boulevard, and repatching it because its like a camels back going up down there, and theyre trying to get it level, I guess, to satisfy the state. So that brings into mention too, the states watching something, but they aint watching this damn hole we have to drive through thats destroying our cars. I wish somebodyd please tell me who I can complain to because the damn state Department of Transportation, they want to blow you off and say its scheduled. Six months is a little long to schedule anything. Please put in the paper who we can contact or Greg Evers number or something. Thank you. EDITORS NOTE: Local and state legislators contact information appears on Page A2 of the Press Gazette.FRIDAY, 1:36 P .M. Yes, this is to say, all these children, they dont have good fortune when they have to take medicine to control themselves from the age of kindergarten to teenager because theyre hyper. And thats the only way because some of the teachers, they dont want any hyper kid in their classes, and the parents have to do this for the kid, and they have to suffer the consequence of how these kids behave later. They get in so much trouble and everything. I think we need to say we agree with this doctor. And this teacher, if they dont want to see a hyper kid, they can go to another job. These children have to not get the medicine so early in life because when they need it for more trouble, they get more doses and more doses, so I hope they start to open their eyes and their mind and their heart and look at see that these kids dont need this kind of medicine. They need to be controlled. The teachers, if they dont want to deal with these kids, they can go somewhere else to look for a job. Principals, all of them. Thank you.S ATURDAY, 2:56 P .M. Yes, this is Terry, from Skyline. I would like to thank the green car who ran over my dead pet in the middle of Dogwood. He was laying on the white line, and the car purposely ran over it, and I was attempting to remove it from the road. I want to thank him. Now its totally mutilated. There was no excuse for that because he was speeding, along with all the other cars that are speeding down this road. Im xin to be the lady everybody dont like on Delwood Drive if you dont start slowing down. Thank you.S ATURDAY, 3:06 P .M. Hi, this is Terry again. I did get my pet out of the road, and I want you to thank everyone who rode by who didnt get over and did not slow down one single bit as I stood on the road removing the animal. I want to thank every one of those cars who did nothing to slow down. Thank you very much for printing this. Tide REPORT Speak OUT

2362847 6012701 S. RICK FAIRCLOTH, EA, ATA, ATP TONI BREWER, ACCOUNTANT, BBA The Answers May Determine Your Success 6012560 WASHINGTON (AP) At some point on Inauguration Day, if all goes as expected, the presidents limousine will slow to a stop on its journey down Pennsylvania Avenue from the Capitol to the White House. A Secret Service agent will open the rear passenger door, and the newly sworn-in president and the rst lady will emerge from his car for a several-minute stroll. The crowd will cheer. Barack Obama will wave. In that moment, Pennsylvania Avenue is Americas red carpet. And the president and rst lady are the only celebrities on it. The victory walk has become an iconic inaugural moment, one expected by the public and the press. And though the tradition dates only to President Jimmy Carter, it has already developed an air of inevitability and predictable patterns. Charlie Brotman, who has been the announcer for the inaugural parade for decades, says the crowd never tires of the moment. When it happens, the 85-year-old says, spectators can expect to hear him saying something like this over the loudspeakers: Ladies and gentleman, heres what the parade is all about. The president of the United States is walking right in front of you. Carter wasnt thinking about starting a tradition when he decided to walk the mile-plus parade route in 1977. The idea wasnt even his. Before the inauguration, a Wisconsin senator sent Carter a letter suggesting the new president walk the route to set a good example for physical tness. Carter initially dismissed the idea as silly, but soon reconsidered. He wrote in his memoir, Keeping Faith, that he began to realize that the symbolism of our leaving the armored car would be more farreaching than simply to promote exercise. I wanted to provide a vivid demonstration of my con dence in the people as far as security was concerned, and I felt a simple walk would be a tangible indication of some reduction in the imperial status of the president and his family, he wrote. Carter told only a few people of his plan, including the Secret Service, and spectators were shocked when he emerged from the limo. At rst, revelers seemed to think something was wrong with the car. Then, they realized what was happening. There were gasps of astonishment and cries of Theyre walking! Theyre walking! Carter remembered in his memoir. No other president has again walked the entire route, a trek that took Carter 40 minutes. His successor, Ronald Reagan, is the only modern president to skip the stroll. Reagan and his wife, Nancy, stuck their heads out of their limos sun roof during part of the drive in 1981, and Reagan didnt have a chance to walk after his second inauguration in 1985: that parade was canceled because of cold weather. The next four presidents, two Democrats and two Republicans, have all pounded Pennsylvania Avenue pavement. They generally walk at least the last block to the White House, though the length and the timing of the strolls have varied. Once the president and his wife emerge, however, the script is similar. Waving, thumbs-up-giving and hand-holding are standard, and the rst lady always seems to make the trek in heels. Even rain or cold dont seem to dissuade presidents. George W. Bush braved wet weather and temperatures in the 30s to walk with his wife, Laura, in 2001. Whether children accompany their parents is hard to predict. Amy Carter, then 9, jumped and danced down the street with her parents. Chelsea Clinton joined her parents in 1997 when she was 16. The Associated Press Q: Why is the inauguration on Jan. 21 instead of Jan. 20? A: The Constitutions 20th Amendment, passed by Congress in March 1932 and ratied by the necessary states the following January, sets the inauguration date as Jan. 20 at noon. Because thats a Sunday this year, Obama will take the of cial oath of of ce that day in a private ceremony. A public ceremony will be Jan. 21 on the west front of the U.S. Capitol. Local of cials are planning for an estimated 600,000 to 800,000 people to crowd onto the National Mall to witness the oath-taking ceremony. This is the seventh time the inauguration date has fallen on a Sunday. Inaugural ceremonies, however, are not traditionally held on Sundays because courts and other public institutions are closed. Q: What is the oath? A: I do solemnly swear (or af rm) that I will faithfully execute the of ce of president of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. Those words transform citizen to president and mark the beginning of a new administration. Franklin Pierce, in March 1853, became the only president to af rm instead of swear that he would protect and defend the Constitution. Q: Does the chief justice always administer the oath? A: Traditionally, it is the chief justice who presides over the swearing-in ceremony. But there have been about a half-dozen exceptions including in 1923 and 1963. In 1923, Vice President Calvin Coolidge took the oath of of ce at his fathers residence in Plymouth, Vt., following the death of President Warren Harding. Coolidges father, Col. John Coolidge, was a notary public and he administered the oath to his son. In 1963, Sarah Hughes, a U.S. district judge in Texas, administered the oath to Vice President Lyndon Johnson aboard Air Force One at Love Field in Dallas, after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Hughes became the rst woman to swear in a president. Q: When was the parade started? A: The rst organized parade occurred at the inauguration of James Madison in 1809. But the tradition dates back the countrys rst inauguration of a president, George Washington, in 1789. Local militias joined Washingtons procession as it passed through towns on his journey from Mount Vernon to New York City, where he was met by the Continental Army, government of cials and other prominent citizens who escorted him to his swearing-in ceremony at Federal Hall. Q: Who pays for all this? A: Much of the cost is picked up by supporters and other private donors, as it has been for years. In 2009, Obama raised $53 million in private money for his inauguration. The private money pays for the of cial inaugural balls, the traditional parade, giant TV screens on the mall for the swearing-in and thousands of portable toilets. Public money is used for security, which is harder to put a price tag on.

Mitchell said in his report that Quates was driving the van eastbound on Lillian Highway, while the Harley was traveling westbound. Quates tried a left turn into the cafe driveway, resulting in the right front of the van striking the motorcycle on the left side, knocking Melton off the bike. The van came to rest on top of the bike. Quates was arrested and charged with driving under the in uence; violation of right-of-way; and no valid drivers license.

Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Of cer Doug Berryman said he was noti ed last week the felony charge was being changed to a misdemeanor by the State Attorneys Of ce.

City Manager is Edwin Buz EddyHomeless coalition seeks volunteers for countThe EscaRosa Coalition On the Homeless is looking for volunteers to assist with the annual 2013 U Count Point-in-Time Homeless Survey. The survey will be conducted over a 24-hour period, from 10 a.m. Jan. 24 to 10 a.m. Jan. 25. ECOH is charged with counting homeless individuals in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties. The purpose of the U Count survey is to determine the needs and extent of the local homeless population, including sheltered and unsheltered men, women and children. ECOH then can match their needs against the services offered in the community. Florida is ranked one of the highest in homeless veterans. As military men and women leave the service, the 2013 count is especially important, as it will provide information ECOH needs to better serve them. Volunteers are asked to serve as active participants in the counting process. No specic experience is required to serve as a volunteer (training will be provided), but compassion and a desire to help individuals who are homeless are essential. ECOH needs a minimum of 150 volunteers to serve a twoto four-hour shift at area soup kitchens, churches, food pantries and other locations where homeless gather. In conjunction with U-Count, ECOH will have its rst annual U-Count Homeless Services Day to provide homeless individuals and families the services and benets they need, all in one place, on one day. Volunteers will be on hand to help secure temporary housing, sign people up for veteran or public benets, provide employment counseling and access to medical care, give haircuts, a hot meal and more. The event will take place at ECOHs main ofce, 2601 W. Strong St., Pensacola. To help, send donations to: EscaRosa Coalition On the Homeless, P.O. Box 17222 Pensacola, FL 32522, or by PayPal at www.ecoh. org/. Please place on the memo line: U-Count Homeless Services Day. Supplies also are needed for the U-Count Homeless Services Day from business and individuals to help those in need. Needed items include socks, gloves, Chapstick, small LED ashlights, dufe bags and backpacks, ponchos, candles, toilet paper, personal body products, mens clothing and blankets.

GEORGETOWN, S.C. In the wake of an uninspired and cowardly climax to the self-in icted drama of the scal cliff, Washington is poised for its sequel: raising the debt ceiling. This is yet another phony crisis in a series created, and then magnanimously solved, by an increasingly inept Washington. Its another case where I wonder if it is more detrimental to taxpayers if Congress tries to do something or fails to. I have heard Congressional Democrats addiction to debt compared to calling the plumber who supposedly xed your toilet after it backed up and ooded your home. The same plumber (a.k.a. Congress) is called back out again to x the problem. He decides to raise the ceiling on your house to accommodate the sewage he created, and then he bills you for it again. The complexity and uncertainty of our lobbyist-written tax system continues to sti e economic growth. We have the highest corporate tax rate in the developed world, and we are on a trajectory of spending and dependency similar to that of Greece. Nothing in the scal cliff debacle addressed our real problem spending. In what passes for frugality in Washington, Obama ew on Air Force One back from vacation in Hawaii, and members of Congress ew back to D.C. at the last minute (always cheap around the holidays), to do the nations business. Then Obama returned to Hawaii for more vacation and had the scal cliff bill shipped to him for signature. It was right out of the Obama/Pelosi I Have a Dream Speech, raising taxes on Americans while enjoying a tropical vacation at our expense. Obama wanted to hurry up and tax the rich in America while we still had a few. Rich is now bandied around by Democrats as a derisive term. I am not sure what rich is in America maybe people with one or more at-screen TVs but Democrats now effectively go the podium, point their ngers at anyone successful and say, There he is, lets get him. After saying during the debates they would not accept $1 of tax increase for even $10 of budget cuts, Republicans got $41 of tax increases for $1 of dubious spending cuts jammed down their throats. It has been a tough few years for Republicans. I thought John Boehner was going to lose his Speaker of the House position, maybe even to a Democrat. It is just that bad. The tone in the country continues to bode ill for Republicans. Hollywood continued to do the bidding of the Democrats and was rewarded with a $430 million gift written into the scal cliff bill in the way of a handout. Meanwhile, the most popular movies are Les Miserables, which celebrates mob rule and the uprising of peasants who kill the rich in France, and Django Unchained, in which a freed slave comes back to kill Southern slave owners. The bad news is that one of these lms will win an Oscar for Best Futuristic Documentary. The only bright spot for the Republicans is that Downton Abbey resumed its broadcast season this week. I am hopeful the Republicans, reasoning they cannot be disliked any more than they already are, will summon up enough backbone to cut up the credit card of Washington by not raising the debt ceiling. That way we can prioritize our spending and get our scal house in order. Republicans have to get past thinking the budget for our military, which spends six times more than the next biggest in the world (China) and more than the other top 10 military powers in the world combined, cannot be cut. Republicans might have to settle for invading smaller countries in the future, preferably ones with inexpensive airline service on Southwest Airlines routes so we can save money. Obama and the Democrats are the real problem. Obama cannot stop campaigning, and neither can stop spending. These are the only two modes they know. No matter what happens with our budget, Washington politicians are assured of getting paid under the Americans with Absolutely No Abilities Act.

Someone calls to check on a subscription. Or they call to start a subscription. Either way, when it gets to the address, they note and thats Pace, FL 32571. Technically, there is no Pace, Fla. It is not an incorporated city. Rather, the address is Milton, FL 32571. That address sticks in the throats of people who are proud of Pace and who often take part in the innercounty rivalry between Milton and Pace. Still, the fact remains: Pace is not a city. Should it be? Well, that is a matter of public opinion an opinion that in the past has been, No, it should NOT be a city. Typically, the rst-blush reaction to this question comes from the fact that nobody wants another level of taxation, and those in this City of Pace would certainly have some level of taxation. Still, there are many more things that come with incorporation other than taxation. Cities typically have their own police department, so residents get better law enforcement: both city and county of cers. City residents often enjoy amenities county residents do not. Streetlights and sidewalks are just two examples. Cities are often eligible for grants and public funding to help with special projects. But perhaps the largest reason for incorporation is something that is accepted as a truism: the government is best that governs close to home. In short, would you rather that a law affecting you is passed by your city leaders or those in Washington, D.C.? You see those city leaders every week. You bump into them while shopping. You might even go to church with them. You have access to these people and they, as your neighbor, understand how any law will affect the local citizenry. So, are these potential pluses worth another layer of taxation? Only the public can say. And we believe the public should say. The area most people consider to be Pace would be, if incorporated, the largest city in Santa Rosa. Such a move could wield a great deal of power. In the end, only voters can decide if positives outweigh the negatives. We do believe Pace area voters should be asked this question at least once every two years. Still, such a vote requires a petition, and that requires someone getting behind the effort. How does Pace feel? Is there anyone there who would like to see Pace become its own city?

OVERHEARD ONLINE OUR VIEW COLUMNIST Santa Rosa County a great place to liveThank you, citizens of Santa Rosa County. For eight years I have lived, worked, and shopped here. Health concerns require a move nearer to family. Friendliness, helpfulness and generally good, decent behavior to ones fellow man is the norm here. Only once in eight years have I heard a car horn honk in frustration or impatience. Many times I have seen a customer in a checkout line step aside for a person with only one or two items. And, wow! Stopping for funerals. My job brought me into every yes, every public school classroom in Santa Rosa County. Problems with public education, real or imagined, are not prevalent in Santa Rosa County Public Schools. If you dont believe that, then call a local school principal and arrange to visit one any one, on any day. And visit your public library branch, too. You wont be disappointed in any of them, either. I have patronized numerous local businesses. Without hesitation, I recommend ones from whom I have consistently received competent, quality service and/or products. Among them are Halls Hardware, Majors Home Improvement, Pollocks Air Conditioning, Pinckard Garage Doors, Phil and Dena (barber and stylist on Stewart Street a couple blocks north of the high school), Joshua Durst (CPA), Michael Utke of Edward Jones Investments (of ce on Chumuckla Highway), Debbie Cooper of PenAir Credit Union (Pace branch of ce) and the service department of McKenzie Motors. I also commend the Pace Wal-Mart. While it is a national company, I believe it employs many local people. I have found the management and staff to be courteous, the shelves well stocked and the store well maintained. Ive been to Wal-Mart in many cities. None match yours. A disappointment has been people who exhibit bad behavior behind the wheel while sporting In God We Trust on their license plates. I cringe every time I see one speed, tailgate, run a red light, park in a handicapped spot without the required placard or plate, or toss trash out a window. Having the In God We Trust plate seems a perfect opportunity to lead by example. Conduct that shows consideration for fellow man and for the environment entrusted their care by their God should be automatic. I believe them to be good people, but not all seem conscious of what that license plate denotes. They are the one group with no excuse for not practicing their Sunday behavior every day, in every way. And some additional comments: 1) Bite the tax bullet and build a new courthouse. The issue has been beat to death too much talk over too many years. One is needed. 2) Fund the inter-county bus service again. And expand it to include more stops. It is a relatively small amount of money to help the less fortunate, the ill or injured, and the elderly get to work, keep medical appointments, and go shopping. It would be an example of collective civil, charitable behavior toward ones fellow man that well complements the individual politeness and respect that is already ingrained in this community.Frank JacksonPaceMILTON PLANS TO OPEN DOG PARK Love this!!!Bobbie Dunlap Shiver Good now maybe people will take their dogs there and NOT on Navarre beach or park!!!!!Wayne Beachbum Spooner People are already using it.

For more information, contact Linda English at 454-5280 or linda@ reimagineworldwide.org. Hello, readers. My name is Kristen, and I am the director of coastal development for United Way of Santa Rosa County. I am excited to be a new columnist here and look forward to sharing with you over the next year. My column is called Living the United Way, and you can look at it as your guide to giving, advocating and volunteering in Santa Rosa County. Today I am writing about the heart of giving and how it affects our community. Every day, we are asked to give. Can you give me a hand? Lets give a round of applause to ... Will you give me a glass of water? Would you like to give to ABC Charity? But how often do we really stop and think about what it truly means to give? Websters Dictionary has many denitions of the word give, but my favorite, and the one I feel best denes the heart of giving, is to enter wholeheartedly into an activity. The activity can be giving our time for a community event, our expertise for a special project, our resources in helping a neighbor or our money to a cause close to us. But when any of these things are done wholeheartedly, we are affecting lives and our community in ways greater than we could ever imagine. It doesnt matter if you can give $1 or $1,000, 10 minutes or 10 hours; when you give of yourself and with a giving heart, the effect will be felt. It is my belief that we are all born with a giving heart. We do not want to see people in pain, in struggle or in need. When we see this, there is an urge inside of us to give. In a 2010 Harvard Business School paper, research suggests generosity seems to generate positive feelings in people, and using resources to help others is consistently associated with greater happiness. Though this study focused on nancial giving, generosity can assume many forms. I believe this principle of happiness extends beyond nancial giving to all forms of giving. We have a community that is full of givers. You might not realize it, but most of the people you interact with on a daily basis have a giving heart. Did you know your Publix cashier gives a portion of her paycheck so those without health care can receive help at the Good Samaritan Clinic? Or that for more than 11 years, Gulf Power employees have given their time at The ARC Santa Rosa with projects such as painting, repairing sheds and creating a nature trail at their facility? Next time you go to the grocery store or pay your power bill, think about the giving hearts of those employees and know that while you might not see their giving, they are having an effect on your community an effect you can make as well by giving wholeheartedly into an activity that speaks to you. Every year, through the 16 agencies United Way helps fund, more than 25 percent of Santa Rosa County is affected directly and many more indirectly. Not just through these agencies, but through the power of our giving hearts, lets make a goal this year that 100 percent of Santa Rosa County be affected in some way through our generosity.

A report led by Berryman says Sousa killed the animal because loose dogs in the area have been running the deer on the property of the hunting club. Reports indicate Sousa told the of cer he heard three dogs running deer but did not see them. He got out of his stand, looking for the dogs and heard them around his camp. He went there, saw one dog walking around, not doing anything and shot the dog from the road. The dog fell dead at the corner of his porch. He got some rope, tied it to the dog and dragged it to Munson Highway at Indian Ford Road. He left the dog there to make a statement to those people who are constantly running dogs illegally on his property, according to the report. The dog was one of three hunting dogs belonging to a man living on Indian Ford Road. The dogs escaped from the pen at home and did not come back. While the owner was looking for his animals, he found the dead dog. SKATE PARK from page A1when waivers are signed and signage at the park says, skate at your own risk. Some skaters over the age of 18 have questioned why they are being forced to wear helmets. Goings said it is the skill level of the skater, not his age, that makes a difference in whether he falls and if he has learned how to fall. A picture of a police of cer in uniform on a skateboard is posted on the Facebook page with the words, In Denmark, Police skate with you. Goings invited Milton police to skate with the local skaters. There are polls on the page for skaters to offer their opinion, as well as video links and photos of people using the Milton Skate Park. Theres even a message for the city police: Milton PD, listen to what we have to say. Thats the only way its gonna get solved without people going to jail or the only safe haven the kids got going away. Just think. Do you really want all of us, 100+, skating in your streets??? Goings said it is his intention for the Facebook page to open dialogue between those affected by what goes on at the skate park. It appears to be working. Parents and skaters are exchanging information and ideas about the park, including the suggestion that crime is down at the park now that the public housing apartments near the park have closed. Goings said many of the skaters cannot afford the helmets required by city ordinance. He said helmets at the park are a good idea at times, but not all the time. I think we should have helmets at the park, but we shouldnt have to wear them all the time. Skaters know their limits, and even I have put on a helmet when trying something new or hard, he said. Its hard to say whether or not they will ever get rid of the helmet rule or not, but I believe the city should trust us more, Going said. An online petition has been created on the Facebook page. Goings said if there is enough support, the group might take its cause to the Milton City Council. CHARGE from page A1

Though the agenda for the meeting will not be nalized until the end of this week, Santa Rosa County commissioners are expected to discuss the covered arena at their Jan. 22 meeting and vote on the project two days later. County Commissioner Bob Cole, who has saved $1 million from his districts recreation funds for the arena, said part of the controversy over the center stems from confusion about what it is. In early discussions, it was referred to as an equestrian center. However, he said it will be much more than that. This is not an equestrian center. This is a covered arena, Cole said. If youre a horse person, then its an equestrian center. If you like to show dogs, then we can have a dog show. If youre an archer and want to stand up a big archery event and know that if it rains you can use the indoor facility, then its an archery center. This is why we (designed) this building as a multipurpose building, he said. The bleachers arent permanently put up, and the corrals for the horses arent a permanent xture. Theyre all things that can move around. The county sought construction bids last year, but commissioners delayed voting on approving a contract with A.E. New Jr. Inc. at their Dec. 10 meeting because they had too many questions about future funding for the project. A.E. New Jr.s bid originally was scheduled to expire at the end of December, but Cole said it has been extended through the end of January. Since commissioners delayed their decision, the countys Tourist Development Council voted to contribute $200,000 to the project, and Cole has found a way to save $50,000 in construction costs. Rather than having the contractor purchase all of the supplies and materials, the county will purchase the materials without having to pay sales tax, Cole said. Theres 50 grand instead of going to the state for sales tax can go into the project, he said. If the project is approved at the Jan. 24 meeting, Cole said construction likely would start within 90 days. The covered arena would be built at the intersection of U.S. Highway 90 and Bobby Brown Road. It would feature a 200-by-300-foot covered pavilion, a judges booth, meeting room and restrooms. Special to the Press GazetteSacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola  continues to see people  sickened  by the u outbreak that arrived early in Pensacola this year and has lasted longer than a typical u season. The rst signs of the u outbreak a ppeared in late October, and  the number of cases kept climbing throughout November and D ecember. From Oct.  28 through Jan. 5, Sacred Heart Hospital  ran lab tests on 1,923 people who had u-like symptoms. Of those, 546 tested positive for inuenza. Since the beginning of December, the Sacred Heart Urgent C are Center in Pensacola  has seen 186 people with u-like symptoms. Prevention Inuenza is thought to spread from one person to another when the infected person coughs or sneezes. There are some things you can to do protect yourself and others, according to Centers for Disease Control. Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it. If you dont have a tissue, CDC suggests you cough or sneeze into your elbow. Be sure to wash the shirt, blouse, jacket, etc. you are wearing as soon as possible. Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. Alcohol-based hands cleaners are also effective. Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread that way. If you get sick, CDC recommends you stay home from work or school and limit contact with others to keep from infecting them. By Stan KirklandFlorida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission After a year of maintaining roads, tending to food plots, monitoring game cameras and placing tree stands, hunters are more than ready to deer hunt. But sometimes, the unexpected happens and a hunting dog or dogs venture onto their property, disrupting their hunt. The question is, what should they do? Under the rules and regulations adopted by the FWC, anyone who chooses to use free-running hounds on private property to pursue deer or other species must apply for and receive a free dog hunt permit registration for approved lands, and the registration number must be afxed to the collar of each dog used. Additionally, the hunter must be in possession of the dog hunt permit. If the dogs get onto property where they are not permitted or wanted, FWC ofcers will contact the owners of the dogs, who likely will be cited for the violation.

LIFESTYLE www.srpressgazette.comWednesday, January 16, 2013 BSection Page 1 Kids practice reading with furry friendsBy SARA BERRES(630) 247-9821 sberres@srpressgazette.com The Pace Library had some special guests visit on Saturday to help local kids get some quality reading time. In the back room at the library, Abbey, a 6-year-old Golden Retriever, and Mea, a 3-year-old Toy Poodle, cuddled up next to new friends as they read books like Larabee and The Great Gracie Chase: Stop that Dog! together. Reading Education Assistance Dogs (R.E.A.D.) is a program held at the Pace Library from 9:30-11:30 a.m. the second Saturday of every month and at the Navarre Library from 4-5:30 p.m. the second Wednesday of the month. Kids sign up for a 15-minute time slot to read with a certied therapy dog. The program started at the Pace Library in June, according to Melodie Taylor, the library manager. Kids may be embarrassed to read aloud to a brother or sister, but here its one-onone and they read to the dog. Everyone loves dogs, Taylor said. The program is encouraging kids to be around books. The same two dogs, Abbey and Mea, typically attend the Saturday program. Yvonne Kass, of Milton, is the owner of Abbey. For the past four years. Abbey has been visiting elementary schools and libraries and is certi ed through Delta Society, where she has been screened for temperament, health, attitude, cleanliness and good manners, among other skills. Judy Delano, of Milton, the owner of Mea, the Toy Poodle, also visits nursing homes and childrens hospitals as a certied therapy dog. I have two other dogs at home that couldnt do this, but (Mea) absolutely loves it, Delano said. She loves children. According to the R.E.A.D. program website, www.therapyanimals.org/R.E.A.D.html, therapy animals have documented bene ts with children. Besides improved reading, increased relaxation and lowering of blood pressure, therapy animals also foster safety, intimacy and help kids turn off anger and depression. Emma Taylor, 5, Pace, read to both Abbey and Mea on Saturday. Emmas father, Mike, said shes a huge animal lover. She wants to be a doggy doctor when she grows up, Mike said. After reading with Mea, Emma gave the 5-pound Poodle a few treats and watched her do tricks. And with Abbey, although her long blonde Golden Retriever hair shed on Emmas black shirt and leggings, it didnt stop her from cuddling up next to the dog and rubbing under her chin while reading. Taylor, the library manager, said the R.E.A.D. program is popular at other libraries and wishes more people knew about it. Its something free to do on a Saturday that doesnt involve watching cartoons, she said. WANT TO GO?

The capture came while the task force was conducting surveillance of a home on Saleta Street, and they saw fugitive Antwan Jernell Thomas arrive and go inside. Task force members from Escambia and Santa Rosa counties, aided by patrol and a K9 unit from Escambia, converged on the home around 4 p.m. Once inside, police said Thomas ran from task force ofcers to the back of the house trying get rid of what appeared to be multiple bags of drugs. Thomas, 32, was tackled and taken into custody without any further incident. The discarded bags were recovered and later tested positive for and identied as containing marijuana, powder cocaine and oxycodone pills. The ve bags of marijuana had a total weight of approximately 70 grams; a bag of cocaine contained 2 grams, and another had 5 oxycodone pills. Thomas is wanted in Escambia County for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, possession of a rearm by a convicted felon, grand theft of a rearm and misdemeanor battery. He also is wanted in Okaloosa County for a felony failure to appear on a driving while license suspended charge; and in Douglas County, Ga., for violation of probation stemming from original charges of cocaine and marijuana trafcking. Thomas remains in Escambia County Jail, where additional charges of possession of marijuana, cocaine and oxycodone are pending. Police said another hard, white substance also was recovered that weighed about 494 grams, which is believed to be some sort of synthetic drug. Thomas also is being charged with possession and selling the synthetic substance. In 2012, The U.S. Marshals and their task forces arrested more than 123,000 fugitives. More than 86,000 of them were state and local fugitives, almost 4,000 were homicide suspects and more than 5,000 were violent gang members. Among that number, more than 12,000 were sex offenders.

Lets look at some of the people in the past, when the citizens no longer had the right to own rearms. Uganda with Idi Amin. Hitler and the Jews. China. Mexico. Cambodia. Russia. American black slaves. Rwanda. Not just 10, 20 or 30 people were killed, but hundreds of millions of people were killed, defenseless and unarmed civilians. The genius of the Second Amendment is to protect citizens from an oppressive government and evil people to keep and bear arms. History has told us to take away arms from the citizens can lead to untold horrors. Thank you. FRIDAY, 8:59 p P .M.This is Charles over here off Avalon Boulevard. Ive been complaining for at least 6 months because Panhandle Paving and Grading, theyve made this mess, this cliff that we have to drive across to get into our neighborhood. And I noticed that today, theyve been out there digging up that brand new asphalt on the highway, on Avalon Boulevard, and repatching it because its like a camels back going up down there, and theyre trying to get it level, I guess, to satisfy the state. So that brings into mention too, the states watching something, but they aint watching this damn hole we have to drive through thats destroying our cars. I wish somebodyd please tell me who I can complain to because the damn state Department of Transportation, they want to blow you off and say its scheduled. Six months is a little long to schedule anything. Please put in the paper who we can contact or Greg Evers number or something. Thank you. EDITORS NOTE: Local and state legislators contact information appears on Page A2 of the Press Gazette.FRIDAY, 1:36 p P .M.Yes, this is to say, all these children, they dont have good fortune when they have to take medicine to control themselves from the age of kindergarten to teenager because theyre hyper. And thats the only way because some of the teachers, they dont want any hyper kid in their classes, and the parents have to do this for the kid, and they have to suffer the consequence of how these kids behave later. They get in so much trouble and everything. I think we need to say we agree with this doctor. And this teacher, if they dont want to see a hyper kid, they can go to another job. These children have to not get the medicine so early in life because when they need it for more trouble, they get more doses and more doses, so I hope they start to open their eyes and their mind and their heart and look at see that these kids dont need this kind of medicine. They need to be controlled. The teachers, if they dont want to deal with these kids, they can go somewhere else to look for a job. Principals, all of them. Thank you.SS ATURDAY, 2:56 p P .M.Yes, this is Terry, from Skyline. I would like to thank the green car who ran over my dead pet in the middle of Dogwood. He was laying on the white line, and the car purposely ran over it, and I was attempting to remove it from the road. I want to thank him. Now its totally mutilated. There was no excuse for that because he was speeding, along with all the other cars that are speeding down this road. Im xin to be the lady everybody dont like on Delwood Drive if you dont start slowing down. Thank you.SS ATURDAY, 3:06 p P .M.Hi, this is Terry again. I did get my pet out of the road, and I want you to thank everyone who rode by who didnt get over and did not slow down one single bit as I stood on the road removing the animal. I want to thank every one of those cars who did nothing to slow down. Thank you very much for printing this. Tide REREPORTORT Speak OUTOUT

2362847 6012701 S. RICK FAIRCLOTH, EA, ATA, ATP TONI BREWER, ACCOUNTANT, BBA The Answers May Determine Your Success 6012560 WASHINGTON (AP) At some point on Inauguration Day, if all goes as expected, the presidents limousine will slow to a stop on its journey down Pennsylvania Avenue from the Capitol to the White House. A Secret Service agent will open the rear passenger door, and the newly sworn-in president and the rst lady will emerge from his car for a several-minute stroll. The crowd will cheer. Barack Obama will wave. In that moment, Pennsylvania Avenue is Americas red carpet. And the president and rst lady are the only celebrities on it. The victory walk has become an iconic inaugural moment, one expected by the public and the press. And though the tradition dates only to President Jimmy Carter, it has already developed an air of inevitability and predictable patterns. Charlie Brotman, who has been the announcer for the inaugural parade for decades, says the crowd never tires of the moment. When it happens, the 85-year-old says, spectators can expect to hear him saying something like this over the loudspeakers: Ladies and gentleman, heres what the parade is all about. The president of the United States is walking right in front of you. Carter wasnt thinking about starting a tradition when he decided to walk the mile-plus parade route in 1977. The idea wasnt even his. Before the inauguration, a Wisconsin senator sent Carter a letter suggesting the new president walk the route to set a good example for physical tness. Carter initially dismissed the idea as silly, but soon reconsidered. He wrote in his memoir, Keeping Faith, that he began to realize that the symbolism of our leaving the armored car would be more farreaching than simply to promote exercise. I wanted to provide a vivid demonstration of my con dence in the people as far as security was concerned, and I felt a simple walk would be a tangible indication of some reduction in the imperial status of the president and his family, he wrote. Carter told only a few people of his plan, including the Secret Service, and spectators were shocked when he emerged from the limo. At rst, revelers seemed to think something was wrong with the car. Then, they realized what was happening. There were gasps of astonishment and cries of Theyre walking! Theyre walking! Carter remembered in his memoir. No other president has again walked the entire route, a trek that took Carter 40 minutes. His successor, Ronald Reagan, is the only modern president to skip the stroll. Reagan and his wife, Nancy, stuck their heads out of their limos sun roof during part of the drive in 1981, and Reagan didnt have a chance to walk after his second inauguration in 1985: that parade was canceled because of cold weather. The next four presidents, two Democrats and two Republicans, have all pounded Pennsylvania Avenue pavement. They generally walk at least the last block to the White House, though the length and the timing of the strolls have varied. Once the president and his wife emerge, however, the script is similar. Waving, thumbs-up-giving and hand-holding are standard, and the rst lady always seems to make the trek in heels. Even rain or cold dont seem to dissuade presidents. George W. Bush braved wet weather and temperatures in the 30s to walk with his wife, Laura, in 2001. Whether children accompany their parents is hard to predict. Amy Carter, then 9, jumped and danced down the street with her parents. Chelsea Clinton joined her parents in 1997 when she was 16. The Associated Press Q: Why is the inauguration on Jan. 21 instead of Jan. 20? A: The Constitutions 20th Amendment, passed by Congress in March 1932 and ratied by the necessary states the following January, sets the inauguration date as Jan. 20 at noon. Because thats a Sunday this year, Obama will take the of cial oath of of ce that day in a private ceremony. A public ceremony will be Jan. 21 on the west front of the U.S. Capitol. Local of cials are planning for an estimated 600,000 to 800,000 people to crowd onto the National Mall to witness the oath-taking ceremony. This is the seventh time the inauguration date has fallen on a Sunday. Inaugural ceremonies, however, are not traditionally held on Sundays because courts and other public institutions are closed. Q: What is the oath? A: I do solemnly swear (or af rm) that I will faithfully execute the of ce of president of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. Those words transform citizen to president and mark the beginning of a new administration. Franklin Pierce, in March 1853, became the only president to af rm instead of swear that he would protect and defend the Constitution. Q: Does the chief justice always administer the oath? A: Traditionally, it is the chief justice who presides over the swearing-in ceremony. But there have been about a half-dozen exceptions including in 1923 and 1963. In 1923, Vice President Calvin Coolidge took the oath of of ce at his fathers residence in Plymouth, Vt., following the death of President Warren Harding. Coolidges father, Col. John Coolidge, was a notary public and he administered the oath to his son. In 1963, Sarah Hughes, a U.S. district judge in Texas, administered the oath to Vice President Lyndon Johnson aboard Air Force One at Love Field in Dallas, after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Hughes became the rst woman to swear in a president. Q: When was the parade started? A: The rst organized parade occurred at the inauguration of James Madison in 1809. But the tradition dates back the countrys rst inauguration of a president, George Washington, in 1789. Local militias joined Washingtons procession as it passed through towns on his journey from Mount Vernon to New York City, where he was met by the Continental Army, government of cials and other prominent citizens who escorted him to his swearing-in ceremony at Federal Hall. Q: Who pays for all this? A: Much of the cost is picked up by supporters and other private donors, as it has been for years. In 2009, Obama raised $53 million in private money for his inauguration. The private money pays for the of cial inaugural balls, the traditional parade, giant TV screens on the mall for the swearing-in and thousands of portable toilets. Public money is used for security, which is harder to put a price tag on. Secret Service doesnt discuss it, but the federal government reimbursed the District of Columbia $44 million for the 2009 inauguration. That was just for city costs, not Secret Service or military personnel.PRESIDENTIAL STRUTPennsylvania Avenue walk now an iconic moment FREE FREEWednesday January 16, 2013 FREE EDITION TAKE ONE APThis Jan. 20, 1977, le photo shows President Jimmy Carter and First Lady Rosalynn Carter waving as they walk down Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington after Carter was sworn in as the nations 39th president.
