75 cents Wednesday, May 1, 2013 Gazette Santa Rosas Press Find breaking news at www.srpressgazette.com Tweet us @srpressgazette and friend us on facebook.com By LYNNE HOUGH 623-3616 news@srpressgazette.com A re that killed a Gulf Breeze man Thursday happened in what Santa Rosa Sheriffs Of cials are saying was a meth house. Thirtyone-year-old Corey Webster Busbee died at the scene of the blaze. He was not identi ed for over 24 hours, due to the damage done by the re, according to deputies. Sean Douglas Pullum, 22, was arrested on Friday night, charged with murder and conspiracy to produce methamphetamine. He remains in the Santa Rosa County jail on $40,000 bond. Sheriffs detectives said an arrest warrant was sought for Pullum following an investigation that indicates the man was involved in a conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine, and during that act, which is imminently dangerous to self and others, caused the death of another person (Corey Busbee). Pullum was originally being held on no bond, however jail records indicate a $40,000 bond has been set. This is not the rst time death or serious injury has occurred in Santa Rosa County at what is believed to be a meth house. In early March, a three-year-old boy was hospitalized in critical condition after he drank what investigators say was drain cleaner in a sippy cup. The childs mother, Victoria Lauren Cain, 27, and her boyfriend, Jonathan Wayne Glass, were arrested and charged with multiple drug crimes relating to the production or possession of methamphetamine and opium; and cruelty toward a child with great bodily harm. Jail records indicate they are both still in custody: Glass on $185,500 bond and Cain on $174,000 bond. Four other people were also charged with drug crimes. The arrests followed an incident in which the three-year-old son of Cain picked up a sippy cup left near the bathroom sink and drank from it after brushing his teeth, according to reports. Investigators say Glass brought the cup into the house with Drano in it and left it where the child could reach it, of cials said. A delay by the couple in seeking help from emergency services may have contributed to the childs critical condition. Doctors said in mid-March that the boy was expected to live, however his condition at this time is unknown. NOT RECOG N IZI N G THE DIFFERE N CE COULD BE F A T AL.

He was born in Detroit, Michigan, to William R. Sr. and Georgia E. Robertsdeceased. He graduated from Southeastern High School in 1953 and enlisted in the U. S. Navy after attending Wayne State University. After boot camp he attended Aviation Electronics School and was assigned to Squadron VA172 attached to Aircraft Carrier Tarawa based in Jacksonville, FL. While on leave in October 1955, he proposed to Betty J. Bertram and they were married April 7, 1956, at Grosse Point Baptist Church in Michigan. They made their home in Jacksonville where their rst child was born. Bill attended every electronics school the Navy offered. He was promoted to 1st Class Petty Ofcer in less than four years (slick arm 1st). He departed the navy and began to teach at Detroit Institute of Electronics. He was recruited and returned to the navy and was stationed at Memphis, TN. After further electronic training he became an instructor and taught for four years. During this duty station two other children were born to Bill and Betty. During this time Bill was promoted to AT Chief and then selected to become a W-3 Warrant Ofcer. His service record included seven aircraft carriers visiting many countries. While on U.S.S. Intrepid he earned the Unit Gallantry Cross and Vietnam Service Medal with 2 bronze stars for Valor (one for saving a young mans life) while serving as Flight Deck Ofcer. Being a humble man he was reluctant to discuss this and only said he was just doing my job. In 1969, the U.S.S. Intrepid returned to Rhode Island and Bill was transferred to Whiting Field for two years as Assistant Operations Ofcer. He then received non-accompanied orders to Morocco as an Electronic Division Ofcer. God works in wonderful ways! While in Morocco at Easter Sunday Chapel Service, Bill accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Savior. His next duty station was Whiting Field as Security Ofcer. We jokingly called him Sheriff. He was HT-18 Legal Ofcer until his retirement in 1976. During retirement he worked on electronics for the U.S. Department of Defense and utilized his college degrees (University of West Florida) by high school substitute teaching. After accepting Christ as Savior he was committed to serving others and his church family selected him to be a deacon. He took seriously the servant role. He taught Bible Study, ministered at hospitals and nursing facilities and worked on mission trips as a member of Pine Terrace Baptist Church. He was a Gideon and served in various roles involved in distribution of bibles and scriptures. He was also active in Family Promise and disaster relief. Bill is survived by his wife, Betty of 57 years, children Dee (Eddie) Perry; Maurice (Jane); Joy (Tom) Powers, grandchildren Jeremy (Jaimie) Hughes; Heather Beard, Bethany Slay and Joshua Roberts and 10 great grandchildren. He was proud of and loved each of them dearly. The highlight of his life was seeing them saved and baptized. All who knew and loved Bill will miss him. The legacy he left behind and memories are of a man who loved the Lord, his family, his church family and friends. He was a kind and caring gentleman. Family visitation was Feb. 12, 2013, and funeral services Wednesday, Feb. 13 at Pine Terrace Baptist with Dr. Michael Wiggins ofciating.

Fred Rogers of First Assembly of God. Im looking forward to a good across the county participation, Rogers said. Just about every church cooperates in any way they can. The prayers will be led by members from the community such as teachers and business leaders, not ofcial clergy-members, said Rogers. The aim is to be non-denominational and respectful of all faiths. The group will begin prayer at the national level, beginning with the President and congress. The prayers will then focus on the state and local levels including the county, city and schools, Rogers said. The event is scheduled to happen, rain or shine, says Rogers. If it does rain, the group will meet in the courthouse. Those planning to attend the event are suggested to bring lawn chairs, according to Event Coordinator Georgia Swayne. Last year, there were an estimated 250-300 people reecting as part of the event, Swayne said. Around the same number of attendees are expected this Thursday. In previous years, judges from the area have been a part of the group prayer on the courthouse lawn, Swayne said. She has been actively participating with the event since retiring from teaching second grade at Berryhill Elementary in 1994. The National Day of Prayer has roots in American history dating back to the First Continental Congress in 1775, according the National Day of Prayer Task Force, a non-prot group formed to promote the event. President Harry Truman signed a federal law establishing a national day of prayer in 1952. The law was amended in 1988 by President Ronald Reagan, designating the rst Thursday of May as the ofcial date. Santa Rosa will be reecting with the rest of the nation during the event. Millions of people of all faiths are expected to gather at public places, including parks, churches, synagogues and courthouses to observe the day of prayer, according to Rogers. People recognize that we need Gods help in our schools, in our families, Rogers said. I think people want to come to show that their reliance is on the Lord. Resell and thrift stores are a ubiquitous presence in almost every town across the nation. Some are bargain basements, some mimic mainstream retail stores, and some are highend consignment stores. But whatever you call them, the thrift store is now one of the fastest-growing industries in retail. Many stores are owned and operated by churches or non-prot mission driven programs like Pensacola Habitat for Humanity, which manages two home improvement thrift stores in northwest Florida called ReStores. Other local mission-based thrift stores include; Waterfront Rescue Mission, Goodwill, and Salvation Army. These familiar stores offer a wide variety of used items including clothing, linens, toys, and other items. But what makes Pensacola Habitat for Humanity ReStore unique is that they sell only home improvement items. Habitat for Humanity Restore accepts donations of items that are in good condition and can be used in countless ways to improve ones home. ReStore shoppers are always in search of appliances, cabinets, lighting, electrical and plumbing supplies, lumber, vintage and shabby-chic furniture, doors and windows. For a complete list of sought-after donations please visit http:// pensacola.habitatrestores. org Thrift stores are typically stocked with donated rather than purchased merchandise. This can mean a great return to the community in goods and services when donations are consistently being added to the inventory. Because inventory is driven by donors and perhaps by the donors desire to clean and organize their home or business, or to make room for newly purchased items; thrift store managers and their customers never know what inventory will be available. Habitat ReStores also benet from donated building materials when residents and business owners remodel or redecorate their existing structures. Besides the thrill of the hunt, thrift store shoppers are looking to achieve a 50-75% savings when shopping at a store that offers gently used and quality goods. This unique inventory acquisition process creates the treasure and bargain hunting frenzy among thrift store enthusiasts. These treasure hunters typically shop their favorite stores two to three times each week with the hope of nding an amazing product at a very low price. Thrift store openings are on the increase and for-prot and not-for-prot agencies are looking to cash in on the thrift store craze. Since the downturn in the economy several years ago, the thrift store industry has seen unprecedented growth. According to IBIS World, the worlds largest independent publisher of U.S. industry research, the used goods stores industry has been one of the fastestgrowing industries in the retail sector with industry wide revenue reaching about $15.0 billion over the ve years to 2012, (www. ibisworld.com report 45331, 2012). More about the Habitat for Humanity ReStore locations and hours: 6606 Elva Street, Milton, Florida and 5810 N. Palafox Street, Pensacola; hours are Wednesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. 6 p.m. ReStore is operated by Pensacola Habitat for Humanity, an affordable housing ministry which was founded more than 30 years ago and has built more than 900 homes in Santa Rosa and Escambia Counties. Prots from ReStore sales are used to accomplish Pensacola Habitat for Humanitys mission of providing affordable homeownership in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties. The store also provides an environmental service by diverting usable materials from our landlls.

Local Santa Rosas Press Gazette| A5 Wednesday, May 1, 2013 By MATT LAMB Special to the Press Gazette The cost of health care rises almost every day as does health care training, but C&G First Response LLC is making the training easier on your nances. C&G held an open house at the Santa Rosa County Chamber of Commerce. Clifton Wheeler, certied instructor and owner of C&G, said he will be offering a four hour CPR, First Aid and AED course for $15. Wheeler said the reason why its so cheap is because you cant put a price on somebodys life. I have been in the emergency medical business for more than 25 years, and I made a goal to make it as cheap as I can, Wheeler said. Since C&G started in May 2012, 600 people have been certied in CPR and First Aid. For the month of April, C&G certied 64 people. C&G teaches in Escambia, Santa Rosa and Okaloosa counties, but recently taught two classes in Boca Raton, FL. C&G staffs four instructors, each with a different skill set. Celeste Nelson is certied to teach CPR and AED, but also holds teaching certications in defensive tactics and rearms instruction. Nelson was with the Santa Rosa County Fire Department for seven years and served as a detention deputy at the Santa Rosa County Jail for 15 years. Nelson said people should be prepared because there will always be something happening wherever you go. Were not so much worried about the money, Nelson said. We just want people to be able to react and save someones life. The website of American Red Cross of Florida has a four hour CPR/AED-Adult course for $90. The YMCA of Pensacola recently held a class for a CPR, AED and First-Aid for $45. Baptist Lifeight Continuing Education offers a heart saver AED course for $50. I had a woman call me one day and said she was told there was a class charging $85, Ofce manager Jim Mobley said. She didnt say the name of the company, but I nearly fell out of my chair when I heard that. Mobley said C&G also offers classes in SitSafe, a $45 Infant and Child babysitter program. Mobley said the goal of the SitSafe program is for teenagers who want to earn extra money, but they dont know what kind of situations they might be facing while caring for a child. Whats going to happen if a child or baby is choking? Mobley said. What if someone breaks into the house? What if a re happens? Mobley said there is an Active Shooter Awareness course currently in the making. The course will offer rst aid and come to any business location. Mobley said the material will be provided by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. We want to work with individuals and businesses because they are the most vulnerable, Mobley said. We think it will benet the community, especially in light of recent events that have happened on a national level. For information visit cgrstresponse.com or call 417-4716.

The liberal world vision and reality are often at variance, for example, with equal pay for equal work. Ive often watched Lockup, a show that features California supermax prisons, including Pelican Bay and Corcoran. Often, a recalcitrant prisoner must be extracted from his cell through brute force. Ive never seen female guards remove a prisoner. If they are part of the process at all, its to videotape the extraction for legal purposes. Its my bet that female guards receive the same salaries as male guards while not having to risk injury. Along the same lines, women on aircraft carriers earn as much as their male counterparts, but I have yet to see women hefting a hernia bar to attach a 500or 1,000-pound bomb to a ghter jet wing. All of this suggests that liberals are for equal pay for unequal work. Or could it be sex discrimination whereby equally quali ed women are denied the opportunity to extract beastly inmates from their cells and load heavy bombs on ghter planes? Heres another bit of liberal confusion. Liberals deny that raising labor cost through minimum wages reduces incentives to hire. But if you asked a liberal for advice on how to stop rich people from shirking their tax obligations, theyd say raise the penalty. Ask low-information Harvard University doctors what should be done to stem gun violence and they answer that government should institute a new, substantial national tax on all rearms and ammunition. Ask Illinois Cook County Board of Commissioners President Toni Preckwinkle how to reduce purchases of bullets and guns. Shed say levy a nickel tax on each bullet and a $25 tax on each gun. Liberals demonstrate they understand the law of demand -that raising the cost of something lessens the amount taken -but they deny that it applies to labor. Thats as ludicrous as suggesting that the law of gravity applies to everything in the universe except cute creatures, such as pandas and puppies. Liberals love political correctness that conceals information. For example, how does one know whether the chair of a board of directors or the chair of a city council is a man or woman? This issue arose during my (1995-2001) chairmanship of George Mason Universitys distinguished economics department. At a chairmans meeting or gathering, I was referred to as department chair. I told the speaker that I am a chairman and that I have empirical evidence as proof. Needless to say, it didnt go over well, but academics dont like the terms chairwoman or chairperson, either, but puzzlingly, God forbid that people refer to their idol as Chair Mao instead of Chairman Mao. How liberals identify black people must be confusing to whites. Having been around for 77 years, I have been through a number of names. Among the more polite ones are colored, Negro, Afro-American, black and, more recently, AfricanAmerican. Among those names, African-American is probably the most unintelligent. Lets look at it. To identify their races, suppose I told you that I had a European-American friend, a South America-American friend and a North America-American friend. Youd probably say, Williams, thats stupid. Europe, South America and North America are continents and home to different races, ethnicities and nationalities. You might suggest that my friend is a German-American instead of European-American. My friend from Brazil is a Brazilian-American rather than a South America-American, and my friend from Canada is a Canadian-American instead of a North America-American. So wouldnt the same apply to people whose heritage lies on the African continent? For example, instead of claiming that President Barack Obama is the rst African-American president, hes the rst partially Kenyan-American president. Obama is lucky; he knows his national heritage. The closest thing to a national identity for most black Americans is some country along Africas Gold Coast. Adding to the confusion, what would you call a white American of Afrikaner or Egyptian descent? Is he an African-American? Liberals suffer confusion and cognitive dissonance because the rest of us dont help explain things to them. Walter E. Williams is a professor of economics at George Mason University.

With Obamacare unfortunately still set to go into full effect next year, millions of Americans will be forced to reckon with massive changes in our health care system. Yet, more than three years after this monstrosity of a bill was passed, the Administration still cannot answer basic questions about its impact. I am particularly concerned that Obamacare could adversely affect several aspects of VAs health care services, including enrollment and utilization, outreach and communications, and staf ng and retention. To try and answer these pressing questions, I chaired a hearing last Wednesday in the House Committee on Veterans Affairs to question VA and Treasury of cials on the potential impact of Obamacare on VA and the millions of veterans currently enrolled in VAs health care system The VA has estimated that, as a result of Obamacare, 66,000 new veterans will enter into the VA health care system. However, at the hearing, VA of cials admitted that their efforts to estimate and prepare for Obamacares impact have been extremely limited, calling into question the validity of their estimates. Obamacare, and its many confusing provisions, will make health care choices for veterans even more complicated. As Senator Max Baucus (D-MT), one of the key architects of Obamacare, admitted this month, the looming implantation of Obamacare is a train wreck. VA owes it to our Nations veterans to explain how they plan to protect veterans from the runaway train that is Obamacare. H.R. 1490 Last year, VA of cials at the James A. Haley VA Medical Center in Tampa, Florida admitted to videotaping a brain-damaged veteran using a covert smoke detector camera. This hidden camera is the only one of its kind at any VA facility, and this type of behavior is as bizarre as it is outrageous. To think that some VA employees actually thought it was a good idea to covertly record a patient with a video camera disguised as a smoke detector boggles the mind. Perhaps even more alarmingly, when the House Committee on Veterans Affairs questioned VA of cials on the legality of this practice at a prior hearing, department of cials contended they had done nothing wrong. Well, I strongly disagree. I believe that the privacy rights of our nations veterans must be fully respected by the VA, and that is why I recently introduced H.R. 1490, the Veterans Privacy Act. The Veterans Privacy Act would keep covert, Big Brother tactics out of VA medical centers and protect the sacred trust that should exist between VA and veteran patients by requiring VA to receive consent from patients before installing cameras in treatment rooms. Washington Update Last week, the House voted unanimously to posthumously award a Congressional Gold Medal to Addie Mae Collins, Denise McNair, Carole Robertson, and Cynthia Wesley, in recognition of the 50th commemoration of the bombing of the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama where these four innocent girls lost their lives. This horri c event, which occurred while these young girls were preparing to attend Sunday School, shook our nation and sparked a surge of momentum in the Civil Rights Movement that helped secure the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. With the 50th anniversary of this tragic event later this year, it is tting that Congress commemorate the memory of these girls with the Congressional Gold Medal. As always, I welcome your comments. To share your thoughts on legislation, votes or issues, please visit http://jeffmiller. house.gov/ to send an e-mail or call any of my of ces. Thanks, Jeff Tuesday 11:49 a.m. The City of Milton is no longer going to hire smokers. Are they going to continue to hire overweight people who cost more in their lifetime than smokers do, by far? They are less productive than smokers are, on labor jobs especially. So, what if a young person came back from Afghanistan and theres a job opening that he or she applied for, but they smoke. Theyre not going to hire them? This is amazing to me. Smokers are cost factor plus for government. Do obese people pay taxes on what they get obese. Smokers, they do, on what they use. By the way, does anybody know that theres nine people on the city council, more than the county commissioners, more than the school board. What do you think? Bye. Wednesday 10:50 a.m. Yeah, this is Bobby. I keep hearing about the Air traf c controllers, you know, they got to slow down on ights and all because Mr. Obama wants to slow the country down so everybody will want to spend more money. They said the air traf c controllers have to take one day off every third week. Well, thats not going to save any money. Because theyve all been there a while. They got plenty of vacation time. And theyll just take a days vacation every three weeks. And so, they still get paid. I think its all for show. Thank you. Wednesday 1:23 p.m. Thought the Press Gazette was for Santa Rosa County. Funny how all of the legals in today, Wednesdays paper are from Okaloosa County and none for Santa Rosa. Yall really goofed. Editors note: Yeah, we did, though the mistake wasnt actually made here, its still our responsibility. Sorry about that. Wednesday 4:29 p.m. Yeah, this is Rick. In reply to Bill Browns letter to the editor about the bus service, I have reread the Gazettes article on it. And there is nothing wrong with it. I believe its just reporting the facts. Drivers said this. The unions said that. Reports show this. If Bill Brown feels offended by these, what he calls slanderous statements then he must have a reason for it. He may be one of the reasons why theyre having this meeting and these problems. Also as for Kenneth, well Kenneth, I applaud you. I have had the chance to read parts of the Quran. And yes, it is calling for peace and harmony. And as for the alcohol sales in Milton, yeah, youre right, all the hypocrites went out there and interpreted the Bible the way they felt like it so they could run their own agenda. Dear Editor, The article on volunteerism prompted re ection on my own. It began during World War II, at age 14, a candy striper at our local hospital. Whos Who in my yearbook lists me as Most Versatile Girl; Girl Did Most for Class; and Girl Most Likely to Succeedall rst place. Even though voted second place for Best Girl Speaker, I recall making a speech at Princeton University while President of the Student Council. Motivation in my early years: Service to others is the rent we pay for occupying space on Earth. My motto during the young adult years re ected the words of Stephen Grellet, is essence: I shall pass this way but once. Therefore, any good I can do, let me do it now for I may not pass this way again. But when I sold out to Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, age 40, I realized whats on my tombstone: Only one life, twill soon be past. Only whats done for Chris will last! Hallelujah! A cancer diagnosis in 1998 and a two-and-a-half month con nement in the Rehab Center following knee surgery did not deter, interrupt my volunteer service, done by cell phone! I cant imagine a life without volunteering. All the years as a Department of Defense employee; the CDC; and elsewhere, I encountered a few selfabsorbed co-workers whose only concern was themselves and their families, sad-to-say. The votes of my high school peers con rm my inclination to volunteering began in high school. Id like to tell them I did succeed because I found Jesus, who was looking for me, no thanks to northerners, with whom I spent many years. No one ever told me about Jesus. Never thought about an afterlife. I thought when you died you just went six feet under. Down South since 1959, I found out not too many in the Bible belt tell others about Jesus outside the church building either. Gods grace created Christians unto good works including volunteerism. Thats why some and I havent shut our mouths about Jesus Christ and His salvation, available to all. Ye may have heard what God opened no man can shut! If were ready to meet our Maker, we need not fear tragedies or disasters because God does not give His children the spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind! This patriot praises and thanks God for all responders, volunteers, patriots, their sel essness on Patriot Day20 miles from where I was born, Boston!

Local Santa Rosas Press Gazette| A7 Wednesday, May 1, 2013 timing nally worked out. The Rachael Ray episode featuring Foster was taped in early April and aired last Friday. She spent two-and-a-half days in New York City. It was Fosters rst time being in the Big Apple. She said it was very different than being down here. The cityscape was so much larger and bigger than imaginable. When it came time for the show and the actual makeover, Foster says she was glad to be there. I was very excited, Foster said. I really wanted to do something with my hair. When they actually cut the hair, I felt the difference in weight, Foster said. I like it. She says others like her new look as well. The comments keep streaming in from those close to her. Out of all the compliments, I love the you look so much younger, Foster said with a bit of joy in her voice. Foster has had long hair since she was seven years old. She says shes kept it long over the years for personal reasons. In 2003, Foster gave birth to a son, four months prematurely. The doctors told her that he would never be able to do normal things. As he grew older and began to walk, he would always hold on to his mothers long, ponytail to stabilize his posture. He passed away when he was three, Foster said, with a sullen tone. I could never bring myself to doing anything. Her long locks were a way for Foster to grieve and deal with pain along the years. Instead of smoking or drinking, I relied on God and growing my hair, Foster said. I couldnt get past certain things. She says she was ready for the lifechanging event of cutting her hair. It was a way of moving on emotionally from the rough times she had faced. Two weeks ago, Foster suffered another loss in her with the loss of her father-in-law, Floyd Foster, Jr. He did get the opportunity to see his daughter-in-laws updated, new look before passing. Shannon said he gave his zealous approval, remarking: Thats my bowl of sassy, he said. I like it. MAKEOVER from page A1 Reports say the shooting took place just before 8 p.m. A parent at the scene told deputies it was an accident. Two small children were playing inside the apartment with an unattended handgun, according to in vestigators. The gun discharged, striking the child. Citing an active investigation, sheriffs ofcials were reluctant to release more details. Any updates that are issued will appear at www.srpressgazette.com No arrests have been made at this time. CHILD from page A1 the vehicle after a 2007 Honda Odyssey operated by Brianna Lynn Strum, 25, Mil ton, struck it on Interstate 10 early Sunday morning. A second passenger in Bonets vehicle, Michael J. Edwards, N.A.S. Whiting Field, received minor injuries. FHP Cpl. S.C. Fisher says Strum was traveling east on I10, near Scenic Hwy, and rapidly approached the back of the 2013 Dodge Charger Bonet was driving. As she approached the vehicle, Fisher says she did not slow down or change lanes. As a result, her car hit the back of the Char ger, sending it across the eastbound lanes of I10 and into the grass median, ipping several times. Roy was thrown from the vehicle while it was overturning and land ed in a westbound lane of the interstate, according to reports. Fisher says Strums vehicle stopped in the median following the crash, then ed eastbound on I10. Santa Rosa Sheriffs deputies later discovered her, still in the vehicle. Strum was taken into custody and charged with DUI manslaughter; DUI se rious injury; DUI property damage; leav ing the scene of a crash with death; and leaving the scene of a crash with serious injuries. She is currently being held on $605,000 bond. Roy was pronounced dead at the scene. DUI from page A1 Interstate 10 early Monday morning, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. Trooper L.D. Slick says Merlene B. Blake, 76, was traveling east in the outside eastbound lane of I10 just a few miles east of Crestview when she changed into the inside eastbound lane. Two sheriffs patrol vehicles with emergency lights ac tivated were parked in the inside lane to keep traf c away from EMS work ers on scene. EMS was there for an accident that occurred ve minutes prior to Blakes arrival, according to FHP reports. The ambulance was also parked in the inside lane, near the overturned semi in the median. Slick says Blakes 2005 Hyundai struck the back of the patrol vehicle, a 2010 Ford Explorer. The im pact moved the Explorer forward, causing it to hit another patrol vehicle, at 2008 Explorer. Troopers estimate damage to the pa trol vehicles at $35,000 and Blakes vehicle at $15,000 in damage. No injuries were report ed in the crash. The original accident occurred at 4:45 a.m. when Geordany Leon, 34, Cut ler Bay, FL was traveling eastbound on I10 when the 2001 semi-truck he was driving went into the me dian and hit a pine tree, according to Trooper E.J. Roberts III. Upon impact, the trailer rolled onto its side. Trafc was held-up in the eastbound lane as the truck was set upright. Leon was not injured.

It was burning good, he said. The father and son had already escaped, but their dog died in the fire, Lee said. Firefighters were on scene until after 6 a.m. due to the size of the fire. Firefighters from Flo rosa, Navarre Beach, Mary Esther, Ocean City-Wright, Fort Walton Beach and Okaloosa Is land worked the scene. The fire appeared to have started in one of the main rooms on the bottom floor, but the exact cause was still under investi gation later Sunday, Lee said.

Weve been hired by the city to look at the future of the riverfront area, said Paul Carabott, senior urban designer for the design. The meeting is basically a hands-on ses sion, or a workshop where people can mark up maps and add input to the study. Peter J Smith & Company, Inc. was hired about six weeks ago to perform a study of the Blackwater Riverfront and develop an attainable, long-term master plan. The New York rm will take the publics suggestions into consider ation while they craft a design for the area. The study is looking at long-term development possibilities along the riverfront from Carpenters Park in Milton to Forsyth Street in Bagdad on the Milton City-side of Blackwa ter River, according to City Manager Brian Watkins. As part of the research phase of the project, the rm will be conduct ing several focus groups to draw in put from local leaders, says Carabott.

Local Santa Rosas Press Gazette| B5 Wednesday, May 1, 2013 2092212 By JASON JANDURA 623-2120 jjandura@srpressgazette.com Riviera Fitness Center in Pace celebrated a few of its members and trainers on Friday after ve members took home awards from the Panhandle Showdown, a body building and tness competition. I was so happy, said Lee Smith, known as Bear to many. I didnt think it would mean that much to me. Smith won the overall event, earning the title Mr. Pensacola and placed second in the masters 40 plus category in the physique category. The 44-year-old began working out when he was 26. He credits the victory to his staunch determination, hard work and diet. And his diet consists of consuming 5,000-6,000 calories a day. Smith said he eats around four-and-a-half pounds of lean meat-chicken, turkey and sh-a day. Calories are taken in 7-9 meals throughout the day. Time at the table is coupled with time at the gym. Smith spends two hours a day working on his tness. He adds an additional 40 minutes of cardiovascular exercise in the morning and then another 40 minutes at night. Smith was proud of his accomplishments but even more so of his cohorts. I watched them work so hard, he said. Ive seen their bodies change. Even though there was a competition looming, the atmosphere around the gym was friendly. He noted that everyone was trying to encourage and inspire each other. I love to help people, he said. Its about what we can do with our bodies. Recent Pace High graduate Jake Johnston snagged rst place in the Teen Bodybuilding division. He said it felt great to have his hard work win accolades. Johnston attended Milton High School for his rst two years and Pace High School for his last two years. He was active in sports, playing baseball and football, but started having seizures in class at Pace. Coaches talked with his parents and came to the agreement that it wasnt worth the risk to play sports, Johnston said. With high school sports out of the question, his mother got him a gym membership. Once I reached my senior year, I was one of the strongest guys in my class, Johnston said. The 18-year-old now attends class at Pensacola State College where he studies nursing. He plans to continue working out and competing in events. After his win in the Panhandle Showdown, he said he will take the next step in the competition and attend a national event in Pittsburgh, Pa. in July. Lori Esser, manager at Pace Riviera Fitness Center, says they have been trying to help the muscle a cionados wherever possible leading up to and after the events. Were basically listening to them and making sure that they have what they need, Esser said. Most of it is overall support. A couple of nights, we stay late. This event had four categories: Bodybuilding, Figure, Physique and Bikini. There were different divisions in each category based on age and experience. The winners will able to compete at the next level, called nationals. After nationals, the contestants could compete in the International Federation of Bodybuilding and Fitness. Arnold Schwarzenegger gained fame and notoriety competing in the IFBB events. Before winning events, and when he rst started working out, Smith said he was scared to death to step in a gym. There was so much worry about what people were thinking and their judgments. Everyone is different, he said. Dont focus on other peoples goals. Im inspired every time someone comes into the gym and who is trying to get in shape.

FREE FREE NEW YORK (AP) They sweep. They swab. They sterilize. And still the germs persist. In U.S. hospitals, an estimated 1 in 20 patients pick up infections they didnt have when they arrived, some caused by dangerous superbugs that are hard to treat. The rise of these superbugs, along with increased pressure from the government and insurers, is driving hospitals to try all sorts of new approaches to stop their spread: Machines that resemble Star Wars robots and emit ultraviolet light or hydrogen peroxide vapors. Germ-resistant copper bed rails, call buttons and IV poles. Antimicrobial linens, curtains and wall paint. Although these products can help get a room clean, their true impact is still debatable. There is no widely-accepted evidence that these inventions have prevented infections or deaths. Meanwhile, insurers are pushing hospitals to do a better job and the governments Medicare program has moved to stop paying bills for certain infections caught in the hospital. Were seeing a culture change in hospitals, said Jennie May eld, who tracks infections at Barnes-Jewish Hospital in St. Louis. Those hospital infections are tied to an estimated 100,000 deaths each year and add as much as $30 billion a year in medical costs, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The agency last month sounded an alarm about a nightmare bacteria resistant to one class of antibiotics. That kind is still rare but it showed up last year in at least 200 hospitals. Hospitals started paying attention to infection control in the late 1880s, when mounting evidence showed unsanitary conditions were hurting patients. Hospital hygiene has been a concern ever since, with a renewed emphasis triggered by the emergence a decade ago of a nasty strain of intestinal bug called Clostridium dif cile, or C-diff. The diarrhea-causing C-diff is now linked to 14,000 U.S. deaths annually. Thats been the catalyst for the growing focus on infection control, said May eld, who is also president-elect of the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology. C-diff is easier to treat than some other hospital superbugs, like methicillinresistant staph, or MRSA, but its particularly dif cult to clean away. Alcoholbased hand sanitizers dont work and C-diff can persist on hospital room surfaces for days. The CDC recommends hospital staff clean their hands rigorously with soap and water or better yet, wear gloves. And rooms should be cleaned intensively with bleach, the CDC says. Michael Claes developed a bad case of C-diff while he was a kidney patient last fall at New York Citys Lenox Hill Hospital. He and his doctor believe he caught it at the hospital. Claes praised his overall care, but felt the hospitals room cleaning and infection control was less than perfect. I would use the word perfunctory, he said. Lenox Hill spokeswoman Ann Silverman disputed that characterization, noting hospital workers are making efforts that patients often cant see, like using hand cleansers dispensers in hallways. She ticked off a list of measure used to prevent the spread of germs, ranging from educating patients family members to isolation and other protective steps with each C-diff patient. The hospitals C-diff infection rate is lower than the state average, she said. Westchester Medical Center, a 643-bed hospital in the suburbs of New York City has also been hit by cases of C-diff and the other superbugs. Complicating matters is the fact that larger proportions of hospital patients today are sicker and more susceptible to the ravages of infections, said Dr. Marisa Montecalvo, a contagious diseases specialist at Westchester. Theres a growing recognition that its not only surgical knives and operating rooms that need a thorough cleaning but also spots like bed rails and even television remote controls, she said. Now theres more attention to making sure that all the nooks and crannies are clean, and that its done in as perfect a manner as can be done, Montecalvo said. Enter companies like Xenex Healthcare Services, a San Antonio company that makes a portable, $125,000 machine thats rolled into rooms to zap C-diff and other bacteria and viruses dead with ultraviolet light. Xenex has sold or leased devices to more than 100 U.S. hospitals, including Westchester Medical Center. The market niche is expected to grow from $30 million to $80 million in the next three years, according to Frost & Sullivan, a market research rm. Mark Stibich, Xenexs chief scienti c of cer, said client hospitals sometimes call them robots and report improved satisfaction scores from patients who seem impressed that the medical center is trotting out that kind of technology. At Westchester, workers still clean rooms, but the staff appreciates the hightech backup, said housekeeping manager Carolyn Bevans. We all like it, she said of the Xenex. At Cooley Dickinson Hospital, a 140bed facility in Northampton, Mass., the staff calls their machines Thing One, Thing Two, Thing Three and Thing Four, borrowing from the childrens book The Cat in the Hat. But while the things in the Dr. Seuss tale were house-wrecking imps, Cooley Dickinson of cials said the ultraviolet has done a terri c job at cleaning their hospital of the dif cult C-diff. We did all the recommended things. We used bleach. We monitored the quality of cleaning, but C-diff rates wouldnt budge, said nurse Linda Riley, whos in charge of infection prevention at Cooley Dickinson. A small observational study at the hospital showed C-diff infection rates fell by half and C-diff deaths fell from 14 to 2 during the last two years, compared to the two years before the machines. Some experts say theres not enough evidence to show the machines are worth it. No national study has shown that these products have led to reduced deaths or infection rates, noted Dr. L. Clifford McDonald of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. His point: It only takes a minute for a nurse or visitor with dirty hands to walk into a room, touch a vulnerable patient with germy hands, and undo the bene ts of a recent space-age cleaning. Environments get dirty again, McDonald said, and thorough cleaning with conventional disinfectants ought to do the job. Beyond products to disinfect a room, there are tools to make sure doctors, nurses and other hospital staff are properly cleaning their hands when they come into a patients room. Among them are scanners that monitor how many times a health care worker uses a sink or hand sanitizer dispenser. Still, technology only takes us so far, said Christian Lillis, who runs a small foundation named after his mother who died from a C-diff infection. Lillis said the hospitals he is most impressed with include Swedish Covenant Hospital in Chicago, where thorough cleanings are con rmed with spot checks. Fluorescent powder is dabbed around a room before its cleaned and a special light shows if the powder was removed. That strategy was followed by a 28 percent decline in C-diff, he said. He also cites Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, Ill., where the focus is on elbow grease and bleach wipes. Whats different, he said, is the merger of the housekeeping and infection prevention staff. That emphasizes that cleaning is less about being a maids service than about saving patients from superbugs.

Hospitals combat superbugs Michael Claes, 62, who contracted a superbug while in the hospital, poses for a photograph while recovering at home in New York. Claes caught a bad case of a diarrheal illness caused by Clostridium di cile, while he was a kidney patient last fall at New York Citys Lenox Hill Hospital. Cities try to keep ospreys from nesting on poles VIERA (AP) Osprey countermeasures can prove elusive. After wind blew an osprey nest off a traf c signal arm and onto a parkway last year, Brevard County workers perched a fake owl atop the arm to spook other birds from ever nesting there again. But the very next spring, a happy osprey couple maybe the same one opted to simply nest atop the other traf c light right across the road. So the county recently retired the fake owl and replaced it with a wiry apparatus that makes it a hassle for ospreys or other raptors to land there. Having birds on top of the mast arm doesnt really bode well for our maintenance guys, said Gil Ramirez, Brevards traf c operations manager. Usually, raptors opt for dead trees. But osprey, owl and other nests also grace traf c signals, power poles and sports eld lights countywide. As development encroaches on habitat, or more eagles and other tougher birds bully them out, displaced raptors grab whatever high-up urban surface seems available and safe. But those man-made structures often prove unsafe. Osprey carrying heavy sh from the Indian River Lagoon fail to clear cars on U.S. 1 and get hit on their way to nesting platforms installed to keep them off power lines. Or birds burn and people lose power when nests short out those lines. We dont want any sort of shorts that will affect the signal, Ramirez said. And we dont want the wildlife to get electrocuted. But the ways for keeping nests away from lights and electric wires are often as touch-and-go as an ospreys landings. Most of these situations, its kind of a trial and error thing anyway, said Ed Hartin, a wildlife biologist at the U.S. Department of Agricultures National Wildlife Research Center in Gainesville Sometimes theyre effective, and sometimes theyre not. Once the ospreys are done nesting, the county plans to put up a fourth set of the wires to deter future nests. Ospreys are not on the federal endangered species list. Like most birds that migrate, however, the species is federally protected under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act. With a state permit, osprey nests can be removed from power poles and other man-made structures, as long as the nest doesnt have any eggs or young in it. Permits typically require building a replacement nesting platform, though, or structure of comparable or better quality than whats there. Florida Power & Light Co. typically builds nesting platforms next to osprey nests to lure the birds away from the power lines and installs special devices on the cross arm to keep the birds from nesting there again. The nests can sometimes trigger outages, and the birds die in electrical res atop the power poles. Ospreys have nested in the lights at Space Coast Stadium for the past several years. The birds drop twigs and sometimes worse as they build nests in the stadium lights. The county put up nesting platforms to keep the osprey and owls from getting too close to the lights. Sometimes, they get a bit too close for comfort to the players. In February, Washington Nationals lead-off hitter Denard Span made national quirky news when an osprey dropped its freshly caught sh, which plopped down right beside him and interrupted a spring training practice. The star center elder squealed. I tell you what, that bird, he de nitely didnt have good hands. He dropped his dinner. He had butter ngers, Span told the Washington Post at the time.

A2 | Santa Rosa Free Press Wednesday, May 1, 2013 CAN WE TALK? PYONGYANG, North Korea (AP) — After weeks of ery rhetoric, military pos turing and threats that it’s willing to strike back hard if provoked, North Korea appears to be taking a bit of a breather. The U.S.South Korea war games it despises are winding down, and feelers are out in diplo matic circles that it might be best to open up some avenue for dialogue. If that sounds familiar, it should — it’s a pattern that has been repeated for decades. So here’s the question: Can we talk? From back-door chan nels to multinational con ferences, dialogue has repeatedly been tried in a long-running effort to get North Korea to put the brakes on its development of nuclear weapons. Gen erally, hopes sputter and fade when North Korea’s talking partners are pre sented with what they con sider impossible demands. North Korea, meanwhile, has moved slowly but sure ly ahead with its nuclear program. The current crisis has played out with the added uncertainty of just how far North Korea’s new leader, Kim Jong Un, is willing to take the brinksmanship. Amid continued fears it may test-launch a midrange missile, North Korea two weeks ago opened the door, just a tiny crack, to talks. First it laid out a list of conditions for dialogue. Then it eased up on the near-daily war threats that had characterized its pub lic statements, possibly sig naling a willingness to dial the tensions back, particu larly after the U.S.-South Korea drills, which were set to end Tuesday. In a subtle shift in tone, North Korea issued these preconditions on April 16 for resuming talks: the lifting of U.N. sanctions, the end of the U.S.-South Korea military drills, the withdrawal of U.S. nuclear strike capabilities from the region and a halt to criticism of North Korea. It then reiterated a demand to South Korea to apologize for offending its leadership before any talk of dialogue to defuse tensions. South Korea’s Foreign Ministry called North Ko rea’s demands illogical, but U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said it was “at least a beginning,” though “not acceptable, obviously.” The U.S. remains open to “authentic and credible ne gotiations,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters soon after ward, but he noted that the U.S. has not seen any com mitment from North Korea that it is willing to end its nuclear program. Getting North Korea to do that seems highly unlikely, especially now that it is claiming nuclear weapons are an essential part of its national defense. But advocates of diplomacy say it still must play a role. Obama and South Korea’s President Park Geun-hye are scheduled to meet in Washington next week to discuss their policies to ward Pyongyang. “A new diplomatic offen sive, which might open an avenue to peaceful resolu tion of the current crisis, would demonstrate that the United States understands that exercising leadership means more than just ex ing military muscle,” Joel Wit, a former State Depart ment arms control nego tiator, and Jenny Town, a research associate at the U.S.-Korea Institute at Johns Hopkins’ School of Advanced International Studies, recently wrote in an article posted online by Foreign Policy magazine. “What’s the alternative? More threats, more insta bility and possibly even a war that nobody wants.” It remains an open de bate what North Korea’s intentions were to begin with. Perhaps North Korea was trying to establish leader Kim Jong Un as a tough guy not to be taken lightly in future negotia tions or any efforts to im pose further sanctions in the future. Maybe it was aimed at the North Kore ans themselves, creating a sense of unity against an outside enemy to bol ster Kim’s footing at home. Most experts agree that it was not about seriously preparing to start a war or taking off the table the of ten-stated desire for talks with the United States to sign a formal peace treaty. But if negotiations are its goal, it may have shot itself in the foot. “The recent barrage of pronouncements from Pyongyang has left an in delible negative impression in the minds of the Ameri can people, which will be hard to undo through any exchanges or negotiations any time soon, especially as long as the current regime stays in power in Pyong yang,” Alexandre Mansou rov, a visiting scholar at the School of Advanced Inter national Studies at Johns Hopkins university, wrote in a recent blog post. Pyongyang has also taken an economic hit for its stance. Operations at the Kae song factory park — a joint endeavor with South Korea just north of the Demilita rized Zone — have been suspended since early April, when the North with drew its 53,000 workers. With Pyongyang refusing to allow South Koreans to cross the border to bring food and supplies, Seoul was planning to pull the re maining 50 South Koreans from Kaesong on Monday, emptying the complex for the rst time since its 2004 opening. North Korea has its own well-honed version of what’s behind the prob lems on the Korean Penin sula and how that justies its actions, no matter what the outside world may say. As it ratcheted up tensions since a nuclear test in Feb ruary, it made one thing very clear: it’s sticking to its story. To the suggestion it has brought international ire down upon its own shoul ders by pursuing nuclear weapons, its response is that the blame lies with the United States, its hostile, nuclear-armed enemy. To questions about its poverty, the blame is placed on U.N. sanctions. Missile and nu clear tests? They are justi ed self-defense. Even something as mundane as blackouts at Pyongyang’s bowling alley quickly become an example of the nation’s resolve not to be cowed by pressure. When asked why the power had gone out briey a few days before, catching many bowlers in mid-swing, Jong Won Gol, a manager at Gold Lane bowling alley, said North Korea wouldn’t have electricity problems if the United States had lived up to its promise to help build nuclear power plants. Washington says that deal fell apart because Pyongyang reneged on its pledges. Jong also launched into a description of how North Korea, like any other na tion, has the right to build rockets for space explora tion. It was a rocket launch, condemned as a pretext for testing missile technology, that led to the most recent U.N. sanctions. “My people cannot ac cept these sanctions,” he concluded. “If we are called to the front, we will be hap py to go.” Hurdles to talks high after North Korea threatsA p P pP H o O T o O S In this recent photo released by the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, third left, looks at South’s western border island of Baengnyeong during his visit to the Wolnae Islet Defense Detachment, North Korea. After weeks of ery rhetoric, military posturing and threats it will strike back hard if provoked, North Korea is keeping the door open – just a crack to the possibility of talks as U.S.-South Korea war games wind down and feelers are out in diplomatic circles that it might be best to open up some avenue for dialogue.

Santa Rosa Free Press| A3 Wednesday, May 1, 2013 6014014 Open during ALL school holiday br eaks and early dismissals (excludes Thanksgi ving and Christmas Day) Creati v e Learning Curriculum and F aith Based. Pro v erbs 22-6 Lic #F01SR0047 Browns Family Daycare Home VPK Certied Insured 3909144 TAMPA (AP) When Sades Smooth Operator came on, the dance teacher clenched his teeth into a grin, pointed both ngers to his cheeks and instructed his class to follow suit. It was, after all, the ultimate job skill. Gentlemen, do box steps and underarm turns as you wish, instructed Tom Stango. 5, 6, 5, 6, here we go! Allison Fernandez shufed her tweed ballet ats in time with her partners feet, brown hair gathered in a slack ponytail. She had worked all day at her internship, gone to economics class at the University of South Florida and was nervous about a nal exam that night. And between it all, she was learning how to ballroom dance. It was fun, yes, but it was more than that. She hoped this might help her get to Wall Street. The 40 students sequestered in a USF dance studio were technically in a professional development class. But they carried no books or papers, only themselves in pressed khakis and polos, heels and demure mall dresses. They were studying business, all the management skills and investment practices. But they were studying something less tangible, too, a posture, a panache. Its honestly all about introducing them to that country club culture, what the silver spooners or sorority or fraternity kids might be exposed to growing up, said J.R. Haworth, coordinator of USFs Corporate Mentor Program. They have to understand networking events, how to work a room. Nine hundred students in USFs College of Business are rst-generation degree-seekers. The Corporate Mentor Program helps them get a leg up. Last year, 68 percent got internships. Some students in the dance class were already in the program. Others were hoping to make an impression and land a spot for the upcoming year. It is highly competitive, with interviews, community service and grade requirements. More than 100 students are chosen and paired with mentors from companies like Raymond James, Nielsen, Target and Jabil Circuit. They learn to live in their world. If youre not sweating, youre not growing, Haworth said. I put them in very awkward situations and they gain a lot in their presence and understanding of how the professional world works. They go to formal dinners and practice delivering concise business pitches in an elevator. They learn etiquette, to sit up straight and make conversation with strangers, take their hands out of their pockets, make eye contact and smile. They dance. Quick-quick-slow, shoulders broad, always moving to the left and never breaking stride. Fernandez came into this raw. I didnt know there was a difference between the forks, said Fernandez, 22. Her parents came to New York from Ecuador. Her father worked in construction stores, then as a contractor, then as a plumber. Her mother raised the kids. They lived in a tiny Queens apartment. Her parents scraped together cash to take the kids on city adventures most weekends, to sit at the South Street Seaport, order snacks and stare at the Statue of Liberty. After the family moved to Florida and Fernandez enrolled at USF to study architecture, her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. The next year, she said, her father fell off a roof and couldnt work. Fernandez went home to Naples every weekend to care for her parents. She changed her major to nance, something that cost less in materials and time. She saw a ier for the Corporate Mentor Program. She applied and was paired with a mentor from T. Rowe Price, where shes now an intern and hopes to work until she ventures back to New York. Her mother works as a secretary and is recovering from cancer. Her father works whenever there are jobs he can handle. Fernandez wants to pay their bills and send them on vacations to Ecuador. Ill do everything for them when I get out, she said. I dont want them to work anymore. After foxtrot, rumba and salsa, it was time for the grand nale, the dance to impress anyone, anywhere. If you think Cinderella, if you think dancing with your Prince Charming, this is the one that I want you to learn, Stango said. When we do the waltz, theres no hips. You oat. Stango taught them to clap for the band and reminded them that when couples collide on the dance oor, both parties apologize. He invited the students to attend a dance in May, with real dancers at a real ballroom. It was not for credit. It was not required. It was the real thing. How many of you think this is something youd be interested in doing? Stango said. Dozens of students let their hands creep into the air. Fernandez did, too. AP Heather Boyle, 22, and Lance Ippolito, 24, laugh as they learn to dance the rumba at the University of South Florida in Tampa. Dozens of business students took ballroom dancing lessons on Tuesday. The students are part of the Corporate Mentor Program and they are the rst in their families to go to college. The aim of the dancing lessons is to teach them poise and condence for their future careers. Ballroom dancing teaches students business skills Woman, 80, swallows diamond at Florida charity event TAMPA (AP) The idea behind the Tampa Womans Club charity event was simple. For $20, you could buy a ute of champagne and a chance to win a onecarat, $5,000 diamond. Organizers of the Saturday afternoon event placed $10 cubic zirconia stones in the bottom of 399 of the 400 champagne glasses. The prized diamond, donated by Continental Wholesale Diamonds, was placed in the last. The problem? Miriam Tucker, 80, accidentally swallowed it. Tucker told local media that she didnt want to put her nger in the glass to get the jewel. Instead she took a few sips of champagne. As she was talking and laughing with other women at the table, she realized she swallowed the jewel. What a dumb thing, she said. Meanwhile, organizers and jewelers Joy Pierson and Andy Meyer were puzzled that no one came forward with the diamond. We knew the winner had to be at one of two tables, Pierson said, who along with Meyer examined each stone with probes and a loupe. As they hovered near the table, Tucker eventually spoke up. She said she swallowed what was in her glass, Pierson said. Event chairwoman Gina Roth insisted that Tucker follow her to a hospital for an X-ray. The diamond didnt show up, but Tucker already had a colonoscopy scheduled for Monday. She told Dr. Bruce Edgerton what happened and he retrieved the diamond, put it in a biohazard bag and gave it to Tuckers daughter. After the procedure, they went to a jewelry store and had the diamond cleaned, tested and veried. Its an amazing story, said Tucker, who hasnt decided on a setting for the diamond. She plans to bequeath it to her 13-yearold granddaughter, where the diamond will stay in the family with a story to go with it. The jewelers said theyve participated in other charity events in which they held a drawing for a diamond. But this was the rst time they used a champagne glass. We might change the way we deliver the diamond, Pierson said. I dont think well put it in a glass again. College crew team nds giant oating head POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. (AP) Anyone lose a giant head made of Styrofoam and berglass? Thats what ofcials at an upstate New York college are asking after the mens crew team found the unusual object oating in the Hudson River. Ofcials at Marist College in Poughkeepsie say the team was practicing earlier this week when the coach spotted a large object oating near the rivers west bank. He hooked a rope to it and towed it to the teams dock on the east bank. The object turned out to be a 7-foot-tall replica of a mans head made with Styrofoam and berglass. The head has the appearance of a Greek or Roman-style statue. College ofcials believe its a theater prop, but so far no one has come forward to claim the giant head. Odd NEWS

75 cents Wednesday, May 1, 2013 GazetteSanta Rosas Press Find breaking news at www.srpressgazette.comTweet us @srpressgazette and friend us on facebook.com By LYNNE HOUGH623-3616 news@srpressgazette.com A re that killed a Gulf Breeze man Thursday happened in what Santa Rosa Sheriffs Of cials are saying was a meth house. Thirtyone-year-old Corey Webster Busbee died at the scene of the blaze. He was not identi ed for over 24 hours, due to the damage done by the re, according to deputies. Sean Douglas Pullum, 22, was arrested on Friday night, charged with murder and conspiracy to produce methamphetamine. He remains in the Santa Rosa County jail on $40,000 bond. Sheriffs detectives said an arrest warrant was sought for Pullum following an investigation that indicates the man was involved in a conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine, and during that act, which is imminently dangerous to self and others, caused the death of another person (Corey Busbee). Pullum was originally being held on no bond, however jail records indicate a $40,000 bond has been set. This is not the rst time death or serious injury has occurred in Santa Rosa County at what is believed to be a meth house. In early March, a three-year-old boy was hospitalized in critical condition after he drank what investigators say was drain cleaner in a sippy cup. The childs mother, Victoria Lauren Cain, 27, and her boyfriend, Jonathan Wayne Glass, were arrested and charged with multiple drug crimes relating to the production or possession of methamphetamine and opium; and cruelty toward a child with great bodily harm. Jail records indicate they are both still in custody: Glass on $185,500 bond and Cain on $174,000 bond. Four other people were also charged with drug crimes. The arrests followed an incident in which the three-year-old son of Cain picked up a sippy cup left near the bathroom sink and drank from it after brushing his teeth, according to reports. Investigators say Glass brought the cup into the house with Drano in it and left it where the child could reach it, of cials said. A delay by the couple in seeking help from emergency services may have contributed to the childs critical condition. Doctors said in mid-March that the boy was expected to live, however his condition at this time is unknown.

He was born in Detroit, Michigan, to William R. Sr. and Georgia E. Robertsdeceased. He graduated from Southeastern High School in 1953 and enlisted in the U. S. Navy after attending Wayne State University. After boot camp he attended Aviation Electronics School and was assigned to Squadron VA172 attached to Aircraft Carrier Tarawa based in Jacksonville, FL. While on leave in October 1955, he proposed to Betty J. Bertram and they were married April 7, 1956, at Grosse Point Baptist Church in Michigan. They made their home in Jacksonville where their rst child was born. Bill attended every electronics school the Navy offered. He was promoted to 1st Class Petty Ofcer in less than four years (slick arm 1st). He departed the navy and began to teach at Detroit Institute of Electronics. He was recruited and returned to the navy and was stationed at Memphis, TN. After further electronic training he became an instructor and taught for four years. During this duty station two other children were born to Bill and Betty. During this time Bill was promoted to AT Chief and then selected to become a W-3 Warrant Ofcer. His service record included seven aircraft carriers visiting many countries. While on U.S.S. Intrepid he earned the Unit Gallantry Cross and Vietnam Service Medal with 2 bronze stars for Valor (one for saving a young mans life) while serving as Flight Deck Ofcer. Being a humble man he was reluctant to discuss this and only said he was just doing my job. In 1969, the U.S.S. Intrepid returned to Rhode Island and Bill was transferred to Whiting Field for two years as Assistant Operations Ofcer. He then received non-accompanied orders to Morocco as an Electronic Division Ofcer. God works in wonderful ways! While in Morocco at Easter Sunday Chapel Service, Bill accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Savior. His next duty station was Whiting Field as Security Ofcer. We jokingly called him Sheriff. He was HT-18 Legal Ofcer until his retirement in 1976. During retirement he worked on electronics for the U.S. Department of Defense and utilized his college degrees (University of West Florida) by high school substitute teaching. After accepting Christ as Savior he was committed to serving others and his church family selected him to be a deacon. He took seriously the servant role. He taught Bible Study, ministered at hospitals and nursing facilities and worked on mission trips as a member of Pine Terrace Baptist Church. He was a Gideon and served in various roles involved in distribution of bibles and scriptures. He was also active in Family Promise and disaster relief. Bill is survived by his wife, Betty of 57 years, children Dee (Eddie) Perry; Maurice (Jane); Joy (Tom) Powers, grandchildren Jeremy (Jaimie) Hughes; Heather Beard, Bethany Slay and Joshua Roberts and 10 great grandchildren. He was proud of and loved each of them dearly. The highlight of his life was seeing them saved and baptized. All who knew and loved Bill will miss him. The legacy he left behind and memories are of a man who loved the Lord, his family, his church family and friends. He was a kind and caring gentleman. Family visitation was Feb. 12, 2013, and funeral services Wednesday, Feb. 13 at Pine Terrace Baptist with Dr. Michael Wiggins ofciating.

Fred Rogers of First Assembly of God. Im looking forward to a good across the county participation, Rogers said. Just about every church cooperates in any way they can. The prayers will be led by members from the community such as teachers and business leaders, not ofcial clergy-members, said Rogers. The aim is to be non-denominational and respectful of all faiths. The group will begin prayer at the national level, beginning with the President and congress. The prayers will then focus on the state and local levels including the county, city and schools, Rogers said. T he event is scheduled to happen, rain or shine, says Rogers. If it does rain, the group will meet in the courthouse. Those planning to attend the event are suggested to bring lawn chairs, according to Event Coordinator Georgia Swayne. Last year, there were an estimated 250-300 people reecting as part of the event, Swayne said. Around the same number of attendees are expected this Thursday. In previous years, judges from the area have been a part of the group prayer on the courthouse lawn, Swayne said. She has been actively participating with the event since retiring from teaching second grade at Berryhill Elementary in 1994. The National Day of Prayer has roots in American history dating back to the First Continental Congress in 1775, according the National Day of Prayer Task Force, a non-prot group formed to promote the event. President Harry Truman signed a federal law establishing a national day of prayer in 1952. The law was amended in 1988 by President Ronald Reagan, designating the rst Thursday of May as the ofcial date. Santa Rosa will be reecting with the rest of the nation during the event. Millions of people of all faiths are expected to gather at public places, including parks, churches, synagogues and courthouses to observe the day of prayer, according to Rogers. People recognize that we need Gods help in our schools, in our families, Rogers said. I think people want to come to show that their reliance is on the Lord. Resell and thrift stores are a ubiquitous presence in almost every town across the nation. Some are bargain basements, some mimic mainstream retail stores, and some are highend consignment stores. But whatever you call them, the thrift store is now one of the fastest-growing industries in retail. Many stores are owned and operated by churches or non-prot mission driven programs like Pensacola Habitat for Humanity, which manages two home improvement thrift stores in northwest Florida called ReStores. Other local mission-based thrift stores include; Waterfront Rescue Mission, Goodwill, and Salvation Army. These familiar stores offer a wide variety of used items including clothing, linens, toys, and other items. But what makes Pensacola Habitat for Humanity ReStore unique is that they sell only home improvement items. Habitat for Humanity Restore accepts donations of items that are in good condition and can be used in countless ways to improve ones home. ReStore shoppers are always in search of appliances, cabinets, lighting, electrical and plumbing supplies, lumber, vintage and shabby-chic furniture, doors and windows. For a complete list of sought-after donations please visit http:// pensacola.habitatrestores. org Thrift stores are typically stocked with donated rather than purchased merchandise. This can mean a great return to the community in goods and services when donations are consistently being added to the inventory. Because inventory is driven by donors and perhaps by the donors desire to clean and organize their home or business, or to make room for newly purchased items; thrift store managers and their customers never know what inventory will be available. Habitat ReStores also benet from donated building materials when residents and business owners remodel or redecorate their existing structures. Besides the thrill of the hunt, thrift store shoppers are looking to achieve a 50-75% savings when shopping at a store that offers gently used and quality goods. This unique inventory acquisition process creates the treasure and bargain hunting frenzy among thrift store enthusiasts. These treasure hunters typically shop their favorite stores two to three times each week with the hope of nding an amazing product at a very low price. Thrift store openings are on the increase and for-prot and not-for-prot agencies are looking to cash in on the thrift store craze. Since the downturn in the economy several years ago, the thrift store industry has seen unprecedented growth. According to IBIS World, the worlds largest independent publisher of U.S. industry research, the used goods stores industry has been one of the fastestgrowing industries in the retail sector with industry wide revenue reaching about $15.0 billion over the ve years to 2012, (www. ibisworld.com report 45331, 2012). More about the Habitat for Humanity ReStore locations and hours: 6606 Elva Street, Milton, Florida and 5810 N. Palafox Street, Pensacola; hours are Wednesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. 6 p.m. ReStore is operated by Pensacola Habitat for Humanity, an affordable housing ministry which was founded more than 30 years ago and has built more than 900 homes in Santa Rosa and Escambia Counties. Prots from ReStore sales are used to accomplish Pensacola Habitat for Humanitys mission of providing affordable homeownership in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties. The store also provides an environmental service by diverting usable materials from our landlls.

LocalSanta Rosas Press Gazette| A5Wednesday, May 1, 2013 By MATT LAMBSpecial to the Press Gazette The cost of health care rises almost every day as does health care training, but C&G First Response LLC is making the training easier on your nances. C&G held an open house at the Santa Rosa County Chamber of Commerce. Clifton Wheeler, certied instructor and owner of C&G, said he will be offering a four hour CPR, First Aid and AED course for $15. Wheeler said the reason why its so cheap is because you cant put a price on somebodys life. I have been in the emergency medical business for more than 25 years, and I made a goal to make it as cheap as I can, Wheeler said. Since C&G started in May 2012, 600 people have been certied in CPR and First Aid. For the month of April, C&G certied 64 people. C&G teaches in Escambia, Santa Rosa and Okaloosa counties, but recently taught two classes in Boca Raton, FL. C&G staffs four instructors, each with a different skill set. Celeste Nelson is certied to teach CPR and AED, but also holds teaching certications in defensive tactics and rearms instruction. Nelson was with the Santa Rosa County Fire Department for seven years and served as a detention deputy at the Santa Rosa County Jail for 15 years. Nelson said people should be prepared because there will always be something happening wherever you go. Were not so much worried about the money, Nelson said. We just want people to be able to react and save someones life. The website of American Red Cross of Florida has a four hour CPR/AED-Adult course for $90. The YMCA of Pensacola recently held a class for a CPR, AED and First-Aid for $45. Baptist Lifeight Continuing Education offers a heart saver AED course for $50. I had a woman call me one day and said she was told there was a class charging $85, Ofce manager Jim Mobley said. She didnt say the name of the company, but I nearly fell out of my chair when I heard that. Mobley said C&G also offers classes in SitSafe, a $45 Infant and Child babysitter program. Mobley said the goal of the SitSafe program is for teenagers who want to earn extra money, but they dont know what kind of situations they might be facing while caring for a child. Whats going to happen if a child or baby is choking? Mobley said. What if someone breaks into the house? What if a re happens? Mobley said there is an Active Shooter Awareness course currently in the making. The course will offer rst aid and come to any business location. Mobley said the material will be provided by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. We want to work with individuals and businesses because they are the most vulnerable, Mobley said. We think it will benet the community, especially in light of recent events that have happened on a national level. For information visit cgrstresponse.com or call 417-4716.

The liberal world vision and reality are often at variance, for example, with equal pay for equal work. Ive often watched Lockup, a show that features California supermax prisons, including Pelican Bay and Corcoran. Often, a recalcitrant prisoner must be extracted from his cell through brute force. Ive never seen female guards remove a prisoner. If they are part of the process at all, its to videotape the extraction for legal purposes. Its my bet that female guards receive the same salaries as male guards while not having to risk injury. Along the same lines, women on aircraft carriers earn as much as their male counterparts, but I have yet to see women hefting a hernia bar to attach a 500or 1,000-pound bomb to a ghter jet wing. All of this suggests that liberals are for equal pay for unequal work. Or could it be sex discrimination whereby equally quali ed women are denied the opportunity to extract beastly inmates from their cells and load heavy bombs on ghter planes? Heres another bit of liberal confusion. Liberals deny that raising labor cost through minimum wages reduces incentives to hire. But if you asked a liberal for advice on how to stop rich people from shirking their tax obligations, theyd say raise the penalty. Ask low-information Harvard University doctors what should be done to stem gun violence and they answer that government should institute a new, substantial national tax on all rearms and ammunition. Ask Illinois Cook County Board of Commissioners President Toni Preckwinkle how to reduce purchases of bullets and guns. Shed say levy a nickel tax on each bullet and a $25 tax on each gun. Liberals demonstrate they understand the law of demand -that raising the cost of something lessens the amount taken -but they deny that it applies to labor. Thats as ludicrous as suggesting that the law of gravity applies to everything in the universe except cute creatures, such as pandas and puppies. Liberals love political correctness that conceals information. For example, how does one know whether the chair of a board of directors or the chair of a city council is a man or woman? This issue arose during my (1995-2001) chairmanship of George Mason Universitys distinguished economics department. At a chairmans meeting or gathering, I was referred to as department chair. I told the speaker that I am a chairman and that I have empirical evidence as proof. Needless to say, it didnt go over well, but academics dont like the terms chairwoman or chairperson, either, but puzzlingly, God forbid that people refer to their idol as Chair Mao instead of Chairman Mao. How liberals identify black people must be confusing to whites. Having been around for 77 years, I have been through a number of names. Among the more polite ones are colored, Negro, Afro-American, black and, more recently, AfricanAmerican. Among those names, African-American is probably the most unintelligent. Lets look at it. To identify their races, suppose I told you that I had a European-American friend, a South America-American friend and a North America-American friend. Youd probably say, Williams, thats stupid. Europe, South America and North America are continents and home to different races, ethnicities and nationalities. You might suggest that my friend is a German-American instead of European-American. My friend from Brazil is a Brazilian-American rather than a South America-American, and my friend from Canada is a Canadian-American instead of a North America-American. So wouldnt the same apply to people whose heritage lies on the African continent? For example, instead of claiming that President Barack Obama is the rst African-American president, hes the rst partially Kenyan-American president. Obama is lucky; he knows his national heritage. The closest thing to a national identity for most black Americans is some country along Africas Gold Coast. Adding to the confusion, what would you call a white American of Afrikaner or Egyptian descent? Is he an African-American? Liberals suffer confusion and cognitive dissonance because the rest of us dont help explain things to them. Walter E. Williams is a professor of economics at George Mason University.

Yet, more than three years after this monstrosity of a bill was passed, the Administration still cannot answer basic questions about its impact. I am particularly concerned that Obamacare could adversely affect several aspects of VAs health care services, including enrollment and utilization, outreach and communications, and staf ng and retention. To try and answer these pressing questions, I chaired a hearing last Wednesday in the House Committee on Veterans Affairs to question VA and Treasury of cials on the potential impact of Obamacare on VA and the millions of veterans currently enrolled in VAs health care system The VA has estimated that, as a result of Obamacare, 66,000 new veterans will enter into the VA health care system. However, at the hearing, VA of cials admitted that their efforts to estimate and prepare for Obamacares impact have been extremely limited, calling into question the validity of their estimates. Obamacare, and its many confusing provisions, will make health care choices for veterans even more complicated. As Senator Max Baucus (D-MT), one of the key architects of Obamacare, admitted this month, the looming implantation of Obamacare is a train wreck. VA owes it to our Nations veterans to explain how they plan to protect veterans from the runaway train that is Obamacare.H.R. 1490Last year, VA of cials at the James A. Haley VA Medical Center in Tampa, Florida admitted to videotaping a brain-damaged veteran using a covert smoke detector camera. This hidden camera is the only one of its kind at any VA facility, and this type of behavior is as bizarre as it is outrageous. To think that some VA employees actually thought it was a good idea to covertly record a patient with a video camera disguised as a smoke detector boggles the mind. Perhaps even more alarmingly, when the House Committee on Veterans Affairs questioned VA of cials on the legality of this practice at a prior hearing, department of cials contended they had done nothing wrong. Well, I strongly disagree. I believe that the privacy rights of our nations veterans must be fully respected by the VA, and that is why I recently introduced H.R. 1490, the Veterans Privacy Act. The Veterans Privacy Act would keep covert, Big Brother tactics out of VA medical centers and protect the sacred trust that should exist between VA and veteran patients by requiring VA to receive consent from patients before installing cameras in treatment rooms. Washington UpdateLast week, the House voted unanimously to posthumously award a Congressional Gold Medal to Addie Mae Collins, Denise McNair, Carole Robertson, and Cynthia Wesley, in recognition of the 50th commemoration of the bombing of the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama where these four innocent girls lost their lives. This horri c event, which occurred while these young girls were preparing to attend Sunday School, shook our nation and sparked a surge of momentum in the Civil Rights Movement that helped secure the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. With the 50th anniversary of this tragic event later this year, it is tting that Congress commemorate the memory of these girls with the Congressional Gold Medal. As always, I welcome your comments. To share your thoughts on legislation, votes or issues, please visit http://jeffmiller. house.gov/ to send an e-mail or call any of my of ces.Thanks, JeffTuesday 11:49 a.m.The City of Milton is no longer going to hire smokers. Are they going to continue to hire overweight people who cost more in their lifetime than smokers do, by far? They are less productive than smokers are, on labor jobs especially. So, what if a young person came back from Afghanistan and theres a job opening that he or she applied for, but they smoke. Theyre not going to hire them? This is amazing to me. Smokers are cost factor plus for government. Do obese people pay taxes on what they get obese. Smokers, they do, on what they use. By the way, does anybody know that theres nine people on the city council, more than the county commissioners, more than the school board. What do you think? Bye.Wednesday 10:50 a.m.Yeah, this is Bobby. I keep hearing about the Air traf c controllers, you know, they got to slow down on ights and all because Mr. Obama wants to slow the country down so everybody will want to spend more money. They said the air traf c controllers have to take one day off every third week. Well, thats not going to save any money. Because theyve all been there a while. They got plenty of vacation time. And theyll just take a days vacation every three weeks. And so, they still get paid. I think its all for show. Thank you.Wednesday 1:23 p.m.Thought the Press Gazette was for Santa Rosa County. Funny how all of the legals in today, Wednesdays paper are from Okaloosa County and none for Santa Rosa. Yall really goofed. Editors note: Yeah, we did, though the mistake wasnt actually made here, its still our responsibility. Sorry about that.Wednesday 4:29 p.m.Yeah, this is Rick. In reply to Bill Browns letter to the editor about the bus service, I have reread the Gazettes article on it. And there is nothing wrong with it. I believe its just reporting the facts. Drivers said this. The unions said that. Reports show this. If Bill Brown feels offended by these, what he calls slanderous statements then he must have a reason for it. He may be one of the reasons why theyre having this meeting and these problems. Also as for Kenneth, well Kenneth, I applaud you. I have had the chance to read parts of the Quran. And yes, it is calling for peace and harmony. And as for the alcohol sales in Milton, yeah, youre right, all the hypocrites went out there and interpreted the Bible the way they felt like it so they could run their own agenda. Dear Editor, The article on volunteerism prompted re ection on my own. It began during World War II, at age 14, a candy striper at our local hospital. Whos Who in my yearbook lists me as Most Versatile Girl; Girl Did Most for Class; and Girl Most Likely to Succeedall rst place. Even though voted second place for Best Girl Speaker, I recall making a speech at Princeton University while President of the Student Council. Motivation in my early years: Service to others is the rent we pay for occupying space on Earth. My motto during the young adult years re ected the words of Stephen Grellet, is essence: I shall pass this way but once. Therefore, any good I can do, let me do it now for I may not pass this way again. But when I sold out to Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, age 40, I realized whats on my tombstone: Only one life, twill soon be past. Only whats done for Chris will last! Hallelujah! A cancer diagnosis in 1998 and a two-and-a-half month con nement in the Rehab Center following knee surgery did not deter, interrupt my volunteer service, done by cell phone! I cant imagine a life without volunteering. All the years as a Department of Defense employee; the CDC; and elsewhere, I encountered a few selfabsorbed co-workers whose only concern was themselves and their families, sad-to-say. The votes of my high school peers con rm my inclination to volunteering began in high school. Id like to tell them I did succeed because I found Jesus, who was looking for me, no thanks to northerners, with whom I spent many years. No one ever told me about Jesus. Never thought about an afterlife. I thought when you died you just went six feet under. Down South since 1959, I found out not too many in the Bible belt tell others about Jesus outside the church building either. Gods grace created Christians unto good works including volunteerism. Thats why some and I havent shut our mouths about Jesus Christ and His salvation, available to all. Ye may have heard what God opened no man can shut! If were ready to meet our Maker, we need not fear tragedies or disasters because God does not give His children the spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind! This patriot praises and thanks God for all responders, volunteers, patriots, their sel essness on Patriot Day20 miles from where I was born, Boston!Chrys HolleyMilton CONGRESSMANJEFF MILLERVeterans Corner

LocalSanta Rosas Press Gazette| A7Wednesday, May 1, 2013 timing nally worked out. The Rachael Ray episode featuring Foster was taped in early April and aired last Friday. She spent two-and-a-half days in New York City. It was Fosters rst time being in the Big Apple. She said it was very different than being down here. The cityscape was so much larger and bigger than imaginable. When it came time for the show and the actual makeover, Foster says she was glad to be there. I was very excited, Foster said. I really wanted to do something with my hair. When they actually cut the hair, I felt the difference in weight, Foster said. I like it. She says others like her new look as well. The comments keep streaming in from those close to her. Out of all the compliments, I love the you look so much younger, Foster said with a bit of joy in her voice. Foster has had long hair since she was seven years old. She says shes kept it long over the years for personal reasons. In 2003, Foster gave birth to a son, four months prematurely. The doctors told her that he would never be able to do normal things. As he grew older and began to walk, he would always hold on to his mothers long, ponytail to stabilize his posture. He passed away when he was three, Foster said, with a sullen tone. I could never bring myself to doing anything. Her long locks were a way for Foster to grieve and deal with pain along the years. Instead of smoking or drinking, I relied on God and growing my hair, Foster said. I couldnt get past certain things. She says she was ready for the lifechanging event of cutting her hair. It was a way of moving on emotionally from the rough times she had faced. Two weeks ago, Foster suffered another loss in her with the loss of her father-in-law, Floyd Foster, Jr. He did get the opportunity to see his daughter-in-laws updated, new look before passing. Shannon said he gave his zealous approval, remarking: Thats my bowl of sassy, he said. I like it. MAKEOVER from page A1Reports say the shooting took place just before 8 p.m. A parent at the scene told deputies it was an accident. Two small children were playing inside the apartment with an unattended handgun, according to investigators. The gun discharged, striking the child. Citing an active investigation, sheriffs ofcials were reluctant to release more details. Any updates that are issued will appear at www.srpressgazette.com. No arrests have been made at this time.

Edwards, N.A.S. Whiting Field, received minor injuries. FHP Cpl. S.C. Fisher says Strum was traveling east on I10, near Scenic Hwy, and rapidly approached the back of the 2013 Dodge Charger Bonet was driving. As she approached the vehicle, Fisher says she did not slow down or change lanes. As a result, her car hit the back of the Charger, sending it across the eastbound lanes of I10 and into the grass median, ipping several times. Roy was thrown from the vehicle while it was overturning and landed in a westbound lane of the interstate, according to reports. Fisher says Strums vehicle stopped in the median following the crash, then ed eastbound on I10. Santa Rosa Sheriffs deputies later discovered her, still in the vehicle. Strum was taken into custody and charged with DUI manslaughter; DUI serious injury; DUI property damage; leaving the scene of a crash with death; and leaving the scene of a crash with serious injuries. She is currently being held on $605,000 bond. Roy was pronounced dead at the scene. DDUII from page A1Interstate 10 early Monday morning, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. Trooper L.D. Slick says Merlene B. Blake, 76, was traveling east in the outside eastbound lane of I10 just a few miles east of Crestview when she changed into the inside eastbound lane. Two sheriffs patrol vehicles with emergency lights activated were parked in the inside lane to keep trafc away from EMS workers on scene. EMS was there for an accident that occurred ve minutes prior to Blakes arrival, according to FHP reports. The ambulance was also parked in the inside lane, near the overturned semi in the median. Slick says Blakes 2005 Hyundai struck the back of the patrol vehicle, a 2010 Ford Explorer. The impact moved the Explorer forward, causing it to hit another patrol vehicle, at 2008 Explorer. Troopers estimate damage to the patrol vehicles at $35,000 and Blakes vehicle at $15,000 in damage. No injuries were reported in the crash. The original accident occurred at 4:45 a.m. when Geordany Leon, 34, Cutler Bay, FL was traveling eastbound on I10 when the 2001 semi-truck he was driving went into the median and hit a pine tree, according to Trooper E.J. Roberts III. Upon impact, the trailer rolled onto its side. Trafc was held-up in the eastbound lane as the truck was set upright. Leon was not injured.

The house at the corner of Lakeview Street and Evergreen Road caught fire shortly before 1 a.m. When firefighters arrived the house was fully engulfed in flames and smoke was pouring out, said Florosa Fire Chief Mark Lee.  It was burning good, he said. The father and son had already escaped, but their dog died in the fire, Lee said. Firefighters were on scene until after 6 a.m. due to the size of the fire. Firefighters from Florosa, Navarre Beach, Mary Esther, Ocean City-Wright, Fort Walton Beach and Okaloosa Island worked the scene. The fire appeared to have started in one of the main rooms on the bottom floor, but the exact cause was still under investigation later Sunday, Lee said. The American Red Cross was able to provide some temporary lodging for the family who will likely not be able to rebuild the home, Lee said. Tides

By JASON JANDURA623-2120 jjandura@srpressgazette.com The public is invited to share ideas and opinions regarding how waterfront property along the Blackwater River should be developed over the next few years during a public meeting this Thursday. Weve been hired by the city to look at the future of the riverfront area, said Paul Carabott, senior urban designer for the design. The meeting is basically a hands-on session, or a workshop where people can mark up maps and add input to the study. Peter J Smith & Company, Inc. was hired about six weeks ago to perform a study of the Blackwater Riverfront and develop an attainable, long-term master plan. The New York rm will take the publics suggestions into consideration while they craft a design for the area. The study is looking at long-term development possibilities along the riverfront from Carpenters Park in Milton to Forsyth Street in Bagdad on the Milton City-side of Blackwater River, according to City Manager Brian Watkins. As part of the research phase of the project, the rm will be conducting several focus groups to draw input from local leaders, says Carabott. There will be representatives from three different groups: business and tourism; culture and recreation; and a group of members of the military will add their input to the conceptual design. At this point, were not far along in the study, Carabott said. The rst presentation of a concept of ideas and a theme will happen at a later meeting. The rm has taken a lot of inventory, regarding properties and locations and has done a lot of eld work, according to Carabott. The city has formed a steering committee to help guide the process. The eight-person committee is comprised of representatives from the city, the county and Bagdad, according to Watkins. The study is funded with $15,000 from the city and $30,000 from the Tourist Development Council.

I was so happy, said Lee Smith, known as Bear to many. I didnt think it would mean that much to me. Smith won the overall event, earning the title Mr. Pensacola and placed second in the masters 40 plus category in the physique category. The 44-year-old began working out when he was 26. He credits the victory to his staunch determination, hard work and diet. And his diet consists of consuming 5,000-6,000 calories a day. Smith said he eats around four-and-a-half pounds of lean meat-chicken, turkey and sh-a day. Calories are taken in 7-9 meals throughout the day. Time at the table is coupled with time at the gym. Smith spends two hours a day working on his tness. He adds an additional 40 minutes of cardiovascular exercise in the morning and then another 40 minutes at night. Smith was proud of his accomplishments but even more so of his cohorts. I watched them work so hard, he said. Ive seen their bodies change. Even though there was a competition looming, the atmosphere around the gym was friendly. He noted that everyone was trying to encourage and inspire each other. I love to help people, he said. Its about what we can do with our bodies. Recent Pace High graduate Jake Johnston snagged rst place in the Teen Bodybuilding division. He said it felt great to have his hard work win accolades. Johnston attended Milton High School for his rst two years and Pace High School for his last two years. He was active in sports, playing baseball and football, but started having seizures in class at Pace. Coaches talked with his parents and came to the agreement that it wasnt worth the risk to play sports, Johnston said. With high school sports out of the question, his mother got him a gym membership. Once I reached my senior year, I was one of the strongest guys in my class, Johnston said. The 18-year-old now attends class at Pensacola State College where he studies nursing. He plans to continue working out and competing in events. After his win in the Panhandle Showdown, he said he will take the next step in the competition and attend a national event in Pittsburgh, Pa. in July. Lori Esser, manager at Pace Riviera Fitness Center, says they have been trying to help the muscle a cionados wherever possible leading up to and after the events. Were basically listening to them and making sure that they have what they need, Esser said. Most of it is overall support. A couple of nights, we stay late. This event had four categories: Bodybuilding, Figure, Physique and Bikini. There were different divisions in each category based on age and experience. The winners will able to compete at the next level, called nationals. After nationals, the contestants could compete in the International Federation of Bodybuilding and Fitness. Arnold Schwarzenegger gained fame and notoriety competing in the IFBB events. Before winning events, and when he rst started working out, Smith said he was scared to death to step in a gym. There was so much worry about what people were thinking and their judgments. Everyone is different, he said. Dont focus on other peoples goals. Im inspired every time someone comes into the gym and who is trying to get in shape.

FREE FREE NEW YORK (AP) They sweep. They swab. They sterilize. And still the germs persist. In U.S. hospitals, an estimated 1 in 20 patients pick up infections they didnt have when they arrived, some caused by dangerous superbugs that are hard to treat. The rise of these superbugs, along with increased pressure from the government and insurers, is driving hospitals to try all sorts of new approaches to stop their spread: Machines that resemble Star Wars robots and emit ultraviolet light or hydrogen peroxide vapors. Germ-resistant copper bed rails, call buttons and IV poles. Antimicrobial linens, curtains and wall paint. Although these products can help get a room clean, their true impact is still debatable. There is no widely-accepted evidence that these inventions have prevented infections or deaths. Meanwhile, insurers are pushing hospitals to do a better job and the governments Medicare program has moved to stop paying bills for certain infections caught in the hospital. Were seeing a culture change in hospitals, said Jennie May eld, who tracks infections at Barnes-Jewish Hospital in St. Louis. Those hospital infections are tied to an estimated 100,000 deaths each year and add as much as $30 billion a year in medical costs, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The agency last month sounded an alarm about a nightmare bacteria resistant to one class of antibiotics. That kind is still rare but it showed up last year in at least 200 hospitals. Hospitals started paying attention to infection control in the late 1880s, when mounting evidence showed unsanitary conditions were hurting patients. Hospital hygiene has been a concern ever since, with a renewed emphasis triggered by the emergence a decade ago of a nasty strain of intestinal bug called Clostridium dif cile, or C-diff. The diarrhea-causing C-diff is now linked to 14,000 U.S. deaths annually. Thats been the catalyst for the growing focus on infection control, said May eld, who is also president-elect of the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology. C-diff is easier to treat than some other hospital superbugs, like methicillinresistant staph, or MRSA, but its particularly dif cult to clean away. Alcoholbased hand sanitizers dont work and C-diff can persist on hospital room surfaces for days. The CDC recommends hospital staff clean their hands rigorously with soap and water or better yet, wear gloves. And rooms should be cleaned intensively with bleach, the CDC says. Michael Claes developed a bad case of C-diff while he was a kidney patient last fall at New York Citys Lenox Hill Hospital. He and his doctor believe he caught it at the hospital. Claes praised his overall care, but felt the hospitals room cleaning and infection control was less than perfect. I would use the word perfunctory, he said. Lenox Hill spokeswoman Ann Silverman disputed that characterization, noting hospital workers are making efforts that patients often cant see, like using hand cleansers dispensers in hallways. She ticked off a list of measure used to prevent the spread of germs, ranging from educating patients family members to isolation and other protective steps with each C-diff patient. The hospitals C-diff infection rate is lower than the state average, she said. Westchester Medical Center, a 643-bed hospital in the suburbs of New York City has also been hit by cases of C-diff and the other superbugs. Complicating matters is the fact that larger proportions of hospital patients today are sicker and more susceptible to the ravages of infections, said Dr. Marisa Montecalvo, a contagious diseases specialist at Westchester. Theres a growing recognition that its not only surgical knives and operating rooms that need a thorough cleaning but also spots like bed rails and even television remote controls, she said. Now theres more attention to making sure that all the nooks and crannies are clean, and that its done in as perfect a manner as can be done, Montecalvo said. Enter companies like Xenex Healthcare Services, a San Antonio company that makes a portable, $125,000 machine thats rolled into rooms to zap C-diff and other bacteria and viruses dead with ultraviolet light. Xenex has sold or leased devices to more than 100 U.S. hospitals, including Westchester Medical Center. The market niche is expected to grow from $30 million to $80 million in the next three years, according to Frost & Sullivan, a market research rm. Mark Stibich, Xenexs chief scienti c of cer, said client hospitals sometimes call them robots and report improved satisfaction scores from patients who seem impressed that the medical center is trotting out that kind of technology. At Westchester, workers still clean rooms, but the staff appreciates the hightech backup, said housekeeping manager Carolyn Bevans. We all like it, she said of the Xenex. At Cooley Dickinson Hospital, a 140bed facility in Northampton, Mass., the staff calls their machines Thing One, Thing Two, Thing Three and Thing Four, borrowing from the childrens book The Cat in the Hat. But while the things in the Dr. Seuss tale were house-wrecking imps, Cooley Dickinson of cials said the ultraviolet has done a terri c job at cleaning their hospital of the dif cult C-diff. We did all the recommended things. We used bleach. We monitored the quality of cleaning, but C-diff rates wouldnt budge, said nurse Linda Riley, whos in charge of infection prevention at Cooley Dickinson. A small observational study at the hospital showed C-diff infection rates fell by half and C-diff deaths fell from 14 to 2 during the last two years, compared to the two years before the machines. Some experts say theres not enough evidence to show the machines are worth it. No national study has shown that these products have led to reduced deaths or infection rates, noted Dr. L. Clifford McDonald of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. His point: It only takes a minute for a nurse or visitor with dirty hands to walk into a room, touch a vulnerable patient with germy hands, and undo the bene ts of a recent space-age cleaning. Environments get dirty again, McDonald said, and thorough cleaning with conventional disinfectants ought to do the job. Beyond products to disinfect a room, there are tools to make sure doctors, nurses and other hospital staff are properly cleaning their hands when they come into a patients room. Among them are scanners that monitor how many times a health care worker uses a sink or hand sanitizer dispenser. Still, technology only takes us so far, said Christian Lillis, who runs a small foundation named after his mother who died from a C-diff infection. Lillis said the hospitals he is most impressed with include Swedish Covenant Hospital in Chicago, where thorough cleanings are con rmed with spot checks. Fluorescent powder is dabbed around a room before its cleaned and a special light shows if the powder was removed. That strategy was followed by a 28 percent decline in C-diff, he said. He also cites Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, Ill., where the focus is on elbow grease and bleach wipes. Whats different, he said, is the merger of the housekeeping and infection prevention staff. That emphasizes that cleaning is less about being a maids service than about saving patients from superbugs.

Cities try to keep ospreys from nesting on polesVIERA (AP) Osprey countermeasures can prove elusive. After wind blew an osprey nest off a traf c signal arm and onto a parkway last year, Brevard County workers perched a fake owl atop the arm to spook other birds from ever nesting there again. But the very next spring, a happy osprey couple maybe the same one opted to simply nest atop the other traf c light right across the road. So the county recently retired the fake owl and replaced it with a wiry apparatus that makes it a hassle for ospreys or other raptors to land there. Having birds on top of the mast arm doesnt really bode well for our maintenance guys, said Gil Ramirez, Brevards traf c operations manager. Usually, raptors opt for dead trees. But osprey, owl and other nests also grace traf c signals, power poles and sports eld lights countywide. As development encroaches on habitat, or more eagles and other tougher birds bully them out, displaced raptors grab whatever high-up urban surface seems available and safe. But those man-made structures often prove unsafe. Osprey carrying heavy sh from the Indian River Lagoon fail to clear cars on U.S. 1 and get hit on their way to nesting platforms installed to keep them off power lines. Or birds burn and people lose power when nests short out those lines. We dont want any sort of shorts that will affect the signal, Ramirez said. And we dont want the wildlife to get electrocuted. But the ways for keeping nests away from lights and electric wires are often as touch-and-go as an ospreys landings. Most of these situations, its kind of a trial and error thing anyway, said Ed Hartin, a wildlife biologist at the U.S. Department of Agricultures National Wildlife Research Center in Gainesville Sometimes theyre effective, and sometimes theyre not. Once the ospreys are done nesting, the county plans to put up a fourth set of the wires to deter future nests. Ospreys are not on the federal endangered species list. Like most birds that migrate, however, the species is federally protected under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act. With a state permit, osprey nests can be removed from power poles and other man-made structures, as long as the nest doesnt have any eggs or young in it. Permits typically require building a replacement nesting platform, though, or structure of comparable or better quality than whats there. Florida Power & Light Co. typically builds nesting platforms next to osprey nests to lure the birds away from the power lines and installs special devices on the cross arm to keep the birds from nesting there again. The nests can sometimes trigger outages, and the birds die in electrical res atop the power poles. Ospreys have nested in the lights at Space Coast Stadium for the past several years. The birds drop twigs and sometimes worse as they build nests in the stadium lights. The county put up nesting platforms to keep the osprey and owls from getting too close to the lights. Sometimes, they get a bit too close for comfort to the players. In February, Washington Nationals lead-off hitter Denard Span made national quirky news when an osprey dropped its freshly caught sh, which plopped down right beside him and interrupted a spring training practice. The star center elder squealed. I tell you what, that bird, he de nitely didnt have good hands. He dropped his dinner. He had butter ngers, Span told the Washington Post at the time.

A2 | Santa Rosa Free Press Wednesday, May 1, 2013 CAN WE TALK?PYONGYANG, North Korea (AP) After weeks of ery rhetoric, military posturing and threats that its willing to strike back hard if provoked, North Korea appears to be taking a bit of a breather. The U.S.South Korea war games it despises are winding down, and feelers are out in diplomatic circles that it might be best to open up some avenue for dialogue. If that sounds familiar, it should its a pattern that has been repeated for decades. So heres the question: Can we talk? From back-door channels to multinational conferences, dialogue has repeatedly been tried in a long-running effort to get North Korea to put the brakes on its development of nuclear weapons. Generally, hopes sputter and fade when North Koreas talking partners are presented with what they consider impossible demands. North Korea, meanwhile, has moved slowly but surely ahead with its nuclear program. The current crisis has played out with the added uncertainty of just how far North Koreas new leader, Kim Jong Un, is willing to take the brinksmanship. Amid continued fears it may test-launch a midrange missile, North Korea two weeks ago opened the door, just a tiny crack, to talks. First it laid out a list of conditions for dialogue. Then it eased up on the near-daily war threats that had characterized its public statements, possibly signaling a willingness to dial the tensions back, particularly after the U.S.-South Korea drills, which were set to end Tuesday. In a subtle shift in tone, North Korea issued these preconditions on April 16 for resuming talks: the lifting of U.N. sanctions, the end of the U.S.-South Korea military drills, the withdrawal of U.S. nuclear strike capabilities from the region and a halt to criticism of North Korea. It then reiterated a demand to South Korea to apologize for offending its leadership before any talk of dialogue to defuse tensions. South Koreas Foreign Ministry called North Koreas demands illogical, but U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said it was at least a beginning, though not acceptable, obviously. The U.S. remains open to authentic and credible negotiations, White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters soon afterward, but he noted that the U.S. has not seen any commitment from North Korea that it is willing to end its nuclear program. Getting North Korea to do that seems highly unlikely, especially now that it is claiming nuclear weapons are an essential part of its national defense. But advocates of diplomacy say it still must play a role. Obama and South Koreas President Park Geun-hye are scheduled to meet in Washington next week to discuss their policies toward Pyongyang. A new diplomatic offensive, which might open an avenue to peaceful resolution of the current crisis, would demonstrate that the United States understands that exercising leadership means more than just exing military muscle, Joel Wit, a former State Department arms control negotiator, and Jenny Town, a research associate at the U.S.-Korea Institute at Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies, recently wrote in an article posted online by Foreign Policy magazine. Whats the alternative? More threats, more instability and possibly even a war that nobody wants. It remains an open debate what North Koreas intentions were to begin with. Perhaps North Korea was trying to establish leader Kim Jong Un as a tough guy not to be taken lightly in future negotiations or any efforts to impose further sanctions in the future. Maybe it was aimed at the North Koreans themselves, creating a sense of unity against an outside enemy to bolster Kims footing at home. Most experts agree that it was not about seriously preparing to start a war or taking off the table the often-stated desire for talks with the United States to sign a formal peace treaty. But if negotiations are its goal, it may have shot itself in the foot. The recent barrage of pronouncements from Pyongyang has left an indelible negative impression in the minds of the American people, which will be hard to undo through any exchanges or negotiations any time soon, especially as long as the current regime stays in power in Pyongyang, Alexandre Mansourov, a visiting scholar at the School of Advanced International Studies at Johns Hopkins university, wrote in a recent blog post. Pyongyang has also taken an economic hit for its stance. Operations at the Kaesong factory park a joint endeavor with South Korea just north of the Demilitarized Zone have been suspended since early April, when the North withdrew its 53,000 workers. With Pyongyang refusing to allow South Koreans to cross the border to bring food and supplies, Seoul was planning to pull the remaining 50 South Koreans from Kaesong on Monday, emptying the complex for the rst time since its 2004 opening. North Korea has its own well-honed version of whats behind the problems on the Korean Peninsula and how that justies its actions, no matter what the outside world may say. As it ratcheted up tensions since a nuclear test in February, it made one thing very clear: its sticking to its story. To the suggestion it has brought international ire down upon its own shoulders by pursuing nuclear weapons, its response is that the blame lies with the United States, its hostile, nuclear-armed enemy. To questions about its poverty, the blame is placed on U.N. sanctions. Missile and nuclear tests? They are justied self-defense. Even something as mundane as blackouts at Pyongyangs bowling alley quickly become an example of the nations resolve not to be cowed by pressure. When asked why the power had gone out briey a few days before, catching many bowlers in mid-swing, Jong Won Gol, a manager at Gold Lane bowling alley, said North Korea wouldnt have electricity problems if the United States had lived up to its promise to help build nuclear power plants. Washington says that deal fell apart because Pyongyang reneged on its pledges. Jong also launched into a description of how North Korea, like any other nation, has the right to build rockets for space exploration. It was a rocket launch, condemned as a pretext for testing missile technology, that led to the most recent U.N. sanctions. My people cannot accept these sanctions, he concluded. If we are called to the front, we will be happy to go.Hurdles to talks high after North Korea threatsAp P pP Ho O To O SIn this recent photo released by the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, third left, looks at Souths western border island of Baengnyeong during his visit to the Wolnae Islet Defense Detachment, North Korea. After weeks of ery rhetoric, military posturing and threats it will strike back hard if provoked, North Korea is keeping the door open just a crack to the possibility of talks as U.S.-South Korea war games wind down and feelers are out in diplomatic circles that it might be best to open up some avenue for dialogue. South Korean protesters burn an efgy of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un during an anti-North Korea rally to denounce North Koreas nuclear test in Seoul, South Korea.

Santa Rosa Free Press| A3Wednesday, May 1, 2013 6014014 OpenduringALLschoolholidaybreaksandearlydismissals(excludes ThanksgivingandChristmasDay) CreativeLearningCurriculumandFaith Based. Proverbs22-6 Lic#F01SR0047 BrownsFamilyDaycareHomeVPKCertiedInsured 3909144 TAMPA (AP) When Sades Smooth Operator came on, the dance teacher clenched his teeth into a grin, pointed both ngers to his cheeks and instructed his class to follow suit. It was, after all, the ultimate job skill. Gentlemen, do box steps and underarm turns as you wish, instructed Tom Stango. 5, 6, 5, 6, here we go! Allison Fernandez shufed her tweed ballet ats in time with her partners feet, brown hair gathered in a slack ponytail. She had worked all day at her internship, gone to economics class at the University of South Florida and was nervous about a nal exam that night. And between it all, she was learning how to ballroom dance. It was fun, yes, but it was more than that. She hoped this might help her get to Wall Street.The 40 students sequestered in a USF dance studio were technically in a professional development class. But they carried no books or papers, only themselves in pressed khakis and polos, heels and demure mall dresses. They were studying business, all the management skills and investment practices. But they were studying something less tangible, too, a posture, a panache. Its honestly all about introducing them to that country club culture, what the silver spooners or sorority or fraternity kids might be exposed to growing up, said J.R. Haworth, coordinator of USFs Corporate Mentor Program. They have to understand networking events, how to work a room. Nine hundred students in USFs College of Business are rst-generation degree-seekers. The Corporate Mentor Program helps them get a leg up. Last year, 68 percent got internships. Some students in the dance class were already in the program. Others were hoping to make an impression and land a spot for the upcoming year. It is highly competitive, with interviews, community service and grade requirements. More than 100 students are chosen and paired with mentors from companies like Raymond James, Nielsen, Target and Jabil Circuit. They learn to live in their world. If youre not sweating, youre not growing, Haworth said. I put them in very awkward situations and they gain a lot in their presence and understanding of how the professional world works. They go to formal dinners and practice delivering concise business pitches in an elevator. They learn etiquette, to sit up straight and make conversation with strangers, take their hands out of their pockets, make eye contact and smile. They dance. Quick-quick-slow, shoulders broad, always moving to the left and never breaking stride.Fernandez came into this raw. I didnt know there was a difference between the forks, said Fernandez, 22. Her parents came to New York from Ecuador. Her father worked in construction stores, then as a contractor, then as a plumber. Her mother raised the kids. They lived in a tiny Queens apartment. Her parents scraped together cash to take the kids on city adventures most weekends, to sit at the South Street Seaport, order snacks and stare at the Statue of Liberty. After the family moved to Florida and Fernandez enrolled at USF to study architecture, her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. The next year, she said, her father fell off a roof and couldnt work. Fernandez went home to Naples every weekend to care for her parents. She changed her major to nance, something that cost less in materials and time. She saw a ier for the Corporate Mentor Program. She applied and was paired with a mentor from T. Rowe Price, where shes now an intern and hopes to work until she ventures back to New York. Her mother works as a secretary and is recovering from cancer. Her father works whenever there are jobs he can handle. Fernandez wants to pay their bills and send them on vacations to Ecuador. Ill do everything for them when I get out, she said. I dont want them to work anymore.After foxtrot, rumba and salsa, it was time for the grand nale, the dance to impress anyone, anywhere. If you think Cinderella, if you think dancing with your Prince Charming, this is the one that I want you to learn, Stango said. When we do the waltz, theres no hips. You oat. Stango taught them to clap for the band and reminded them that when couples collide on the dance oor, both parties apologize. He invited the students to attend a dance in May, with real dancers at a real ballroom. It was not for credit. It was not required. It was the real thing. How many of you think this is something youd be interested in doing? Stango said. Dozens of students let their hands creep into the air. Fernandez did, too. APHeather Boyle, 22, and Lance Ippolito, 24, laugh as they learn to dance the rumba at the University of South Florida in Tampa. Dozens of business students took ballroom dancing lessons on Tuesday. The students are part of the Corporate Mentor Program and they are the rst in their families to go to college. The aim of the dancing lessons is to teach them poise and condence for their future careers. Ballroom dancing teaches students business skillsWoman, 80, swallows diamond at Florida charity event TAMPA (AP) The idea behind the Tampa Womans Club charity event was simple. For $20, you could buy a ute of champagne and a chance to win a onecarat, $5,000 diamond. Organizers of the Saturday afternoon event placed $10 cubic zirconia stones in the bottom of 399 of the 400 champagne glasses. The prized diamond, donated by Continental Wholesale Diamonds, was placed in the last. The problem? Miriam Tucker, 80, accidentally swallowed it. Tucker told local media that she didnt want to put her nger in the glass to get the jewel. Instead she took a few sips of champagne. As she was talking and laughing with other women at the table, she realized she swallowed the jewel. What a dumb thing, she said. Meanwhile, organizers and jewelers Joy Pierson and Andy Meyer were puzzled that no one came forward with the diamond. We knew the winner had to be at one of two tables, Pierson said, who along with Meyer examined each stone with probes and a loupe. As they hovered near the table, Tucker eventually spoke up. She said she swallowed what was in her glass, Pierson said. Event chairwoman Gina Roth insisted that Tucker follow her to a hospital for an X-ray. The diamond didnt show up, but Tucker already had a colonoscopy scheduled for Monday. She told Dr. Bruce Edgerton what happened and he retrieved the diamond, put it in a biohazard bag and gave it to Tuckers daughter. After the procedure, they went to a jewelry store and had the diamond cleaned, tested and veried. Its an amazing story, said Tucker, who hasnt decided on a setting for the diamond. She plans to bequeath it to her 13-yearold granddaughter, where the diamond will stay in the family with a story to go with it. The jewelers said theyve participated in other charity events in which they held a drawing for a diamond. But this was the rst time they used a champagne glass. We might change the way we deliver the diamond, Pierson said. I dont think well put it in a glass again. College crew team nds giant oating head POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. (AP) Anyone lose a giant head made of Styrofoam and berglass? Thats what ofcials at an upstate New York college are asking after the mens crew team found the unusual object oating in the Hudson River. Ofcials at Marist College in Poughkeepsie say the team was practicing earlier this week when the coach spotted a large object oating near the rivers west bank. He hooked a rope to it and towed it to the teams dock on the east bank. The object turned out to be a 7-foot-tall replica of a mans head made with Styrofoam and berglass. The head has the appearance of a Greek or Roman-style statue. College ofcials believe its a theater prop, but so far no one has come forward to claim the giant head. Odd NEWS
