The motion passed with all council members in favor. The item will be on the the March 22 City Council meeting agenda and a final decision will be made.Lowery said he recently spoke with a resident about other Florida governments that have enacted similar ordinances. To me, this is more than just plastic bags,Ž Lowery said. I think it is important that we pass (this) simply because we need to be the ones making the decisions.ŽThe ordinance opposes statewide preemption on local efforts to determine the best course of action with regards to protection of the local environ-ment and tourism economy. According to the ordinance, the unrestrained usage of single-use shopping bags and their usual disposal rates creates a hindrance on the citys waste reduction and recycling goals while creating unsightly litter.Its a question of home rule,Ž Planning Director Randy Jorgenson said. Thats what I think is being acted on in the legislature and I encourage you to pass it.ŽThe council has acknowledged that some local businesses have taken steps to achieve the goal of lessening plastic bag usage.Mayor Wesley Meiss predicts similar changes statewide, even nationwide within 10 years. I think the state of Florida „ maybe the rest of the country „ will go to a no-plas-tic-bag policy,Ž he said. I think were going that way.

** A2 Wednesday, March 14, 2018 | Santa Rosa Press Gazette COMMUNITYJoan Elaine Griffin Byrd, 67, of Jay, Florida, died Wednesday night, March 7, 2018, after a lengthy illness. She was a true believer of God, a Christian, and a member of Jay First Baptist Church. Joan was born on June 27, 1950, to James Carlton DocŽ and Senior Rae Griffin in Lineville, Alabama. After her parents died, Joan became the loving matriarch of her family to her siblings: sisters, Doris Jackson and Debbie Bell (John), and brothers, James and Bryan (Shannon). Joan is also survived by Joan graduated from Jay High School in 1968 and later attended Sacred Heart X-Ray Technician School. She worked as an x-ray technician in local hospitals in the Santa Rosa and Escambia County areas. Her later career was spent at Monsanto, where she retired about ten years ago. Joans retirement years were devoted to taking care of her invalid mother and keeping her mothers flower shop open. Some of Joans fondest memories were growing up in that shop. Flowers brought smiles and comfort. Flowers healed a lot of hearts. Customers became her friends as she listened to their stories, both happy and sad. She helped bury their loved ones, welcome their newborns into the world, celebrate another year gone by with perfect floral arrangements with her smiles and heartfelt emotion. Flowers were the channels of her exuberance and the vessels to pour out her love. One of Joans favorite quotes about friendship from an unknown author: It takes a minute to find a friend, an hour to appreciate them, but it takes a lifetime to forget them.Ž Joan will never be forgotten by the people who loved her. She was sweet, passionate, witty, caring, loving, and so full of life. She tried lifting others up on some of her worst days. A selfless person, Joan was a generous and spiritual person. She would invest herself wholeheartedly into endeavors, for she was adventuresome and tenacious. She worked faithfully with resources that she had, stayed with tasks even when discouraged, held on to life, and lived life her way. She was always more concerned with the happiness of others than for herself. Her rewards in Heaven today will be her final remittance. Joans final wish was for her siblings to come together as a family. Her message to family and friends on December 31, 2017, states it so well: Family is a gift, and all the love is the glue to mend it when we have lost friends, parents, and grandparents. Forgive and forget. Understand that everyone is unique. Let God help you each day. He is waiting for you to just ask.Ž The family would like to thank Covenant Hospice Care for their care of Joan during her final days. Joans internment will be beside her parents at Jay Cemetery at an undisclosed date and time at Joans request.JOAN ELAINE GRIFFIN BYRD MILTON „ Upcoming Santa Rosa County events and activities are as follows.

His speech on March 1 dealt to a substantial degree with the challenges of economic growth and modernization. Putins speech is the latest installment of the annual address formally titled the Presidential Address to the Federal Assembly. The custom dates back to the early 1990s and the turbulent regime of President Boris Yeltsin. Putin took over national power at the turn of the century, and essentially has maintained control ever since. Significantly, considerable media attention is devoted to his statements regarding the current and future development of nuclear weapons, including advanced technologically exotic offensive systems and a new generation of cruise missiles. His tone was combative, and the rhetoric clearly aggressive, even if there was nothing especially new in the substance of his remarks. This is not surprising, given the increasing tensions between Moscow and Washington D.C. Current preoccupation in the United States with confirmed Russian meddling in the 2016 elections has greatly increased hostile sentiments ranging from anxiety to alarm. In fact, President Barack Obama called attention to this meddling before voting took place. Todays media commentators and reporters, and of course our politicians, tend to overlook that point. Our current demonization of Russia is one understandable result. The latest partisan-driven effort to try to link criminal activity directly to the White House and President Donald Trump, a legacy of the Watergate scandals of the 1970s, feeds the general obsession with Russia. Ignored in all this intense political heat is the degree to which Putins speech addressed economic rather than military matters. He admitted that Russias position remains weak. While the government halted decline, and is taking significant steps to promote investment and infrastructure, the economy remains vulnerable. Russias president employs autocratic and at times ruthless tactics. That reflects both absence of democratic practices and tradition, and the clear preferences of those in charge. Putin deserves credit for stabilizing an economy in free fall when he took over. Russia was literally disintegrating in tangible terms, public suffering was growing at an alarming rate, and total collapse was imminent. Even though the government averted disaster, Russia remains essentially a developing country, plagued with corruption, lack of investment and basic dependence on petroleum. On the military side, Putin emphasized the important decision of President George W. Bush to withdraw from the 1972 ABM (Anti-Ballistic Missile) Treaty as partial justification for new weapons development. This treaty complemented another limiting the numbers of strategic missile launchers on both sides. The two SALT I (Strategic Arms Limitation) treaties are capstone diplomatic achievements of President Richard Nixon and adviser, later secretary of state, Henry Kissinger.Russia rocket rattling not surprising or alarmingTodays students arent hippies „far from it. There is no flower power or free love movement. However, high school and college students are socially active and have some big advantages over the original hippies who fought against the war in Vietnam and other threats to world peace. Their predecessors protested and marched. It took a lot of time and sacrifice. They had success. I call todays social activists digital hippies.Ž The war of ideas is being fought on their home turf. These students were born and raised on social media and they know how to build and reach an audience with a message. Many people try to diminish their ideas and ideals because of their age, but a vast majority of these young people are already fed up with the foregone conclusions drawn by leaders owned by lobbyists and they arent taking no for an answer. One of the best examples of the advantage enjoyed by the digital hippies is that they dont have to leave home and camp out on the lawn of a government building to make a difference. They can do it across social media platforms from their phones. One of the biggest movements to catch fire recently is the force behind the never againŽ hashtag on Twitter and other platforms. After the shooting that claimed 17 lives at a high school in Parkland, Florida, students began to push back against the system that allowed the shooter who killed their friends to legally amass an arsenal that was then unleashed on their school. But that advantage fades when you consider what their movement is against. Mass shootings are a tougher opponent for activists than a war in several ways. The war in Vietnam didnt have the National Rifle Association lobbying lawmakers to keep it going. After every mass shooting at a nightclub, concert or school, the NRA goes silent for a few days publicly while feverishly working to allay the panic over political pushback privately. Then the organization comes out fighting, somehow always becoming the victim of a liberal bogeyman. The NRA has an advantage because even people who support the military and love the troops and what they do for America can also be against sending those troops needlessly into harms way. Decades of slippery slope arguments that any gun control is equitable to seizing guns and disarming America and the provably false narrative that the Second Amendment is sacrosanct in protecting every Americans right to own any gun and any amount of ammunition they choose, have caused mass shootings to become a rallying cry for those who fear they will somehow lose their right to protect themselves and their families. The best example of this is President Donald Trump holding meetings in the days after the Parkland shooting where he advocated taking guns from people who are mentally ill and also raising the age limit to purchase guns from 18 to 21. He even mocked Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pennsylvania) for being too scared of the NRAŽ to do something substantial about gun control, like raising the minimum age to buy rifles. A lot of people are afraid of that issue„ raising the age for that weapon to 21,Ž Trump said. Count the president among the profiles in courage who tuck their tails and change their policies because they are scared of the NRA. Of course, the NRA spent more than $30 million on Trumps own campaign and they will be a big player in the midterms trying to stop an apparent blue waveŽ of electoral wins for Democrats across the country. After meeting with NRA officials, the president suddenly sees Toomeys side of the argument and has backed off of every proposal to change anything about gun acquisition and ownership. If that pattern feels familiar, it should. No matter how deadly the shootings have been, no real gun control measures have been passed. The president now says he wants to fund armed teachers in the classroom and ban bump stocks. The armed teacher bill is supported by the NRA. It will pass. I have doubts about bump stocks being banned. There are no legislators courageous enough to take that on. It is far more difficult for todays digital hippies to fight for common sense gun control than it was to fight the war in Vietnam. With the war, there were daily headlines with dead teens from communities all around the country. There were atrocities when soldiers werent being killed. It will be interesting to see if the digital hippies can win the fight on their home turf or if the power of the purse and apathy after enough water flows under the bridge can limit their effectiveness. Kent Bush is publisher of Shawnee (Oklahoma) NewsStar and can be reached at kent.bush@news-star.com.The digital hippies are ghting an uphill battle Dear editor, The physical signs of a tribulation continue into 2018. In two months weve had one of the worst flu epidemics in our history, with nearly 120 children dying so far as it begins to wane. Weve had the worst high school massacre in US history with 17 people killed right here in Florida. Were now undergoing a significant wave of ongoing Noreasters occurring which has left millions of people in the Northeast without power and has disrupted air and train travel for thousands all over the east coast. Now, these physical events, if you connect the dots, have been both continuous and increasing in America and were only in early March. Christians would recognize the continuous pattern of personal and national disasters as a wakeup call that should urge them to express concern to enlighten non-Christians. This pattern of disasters suggests a closer return of the Lord Jesus Christ. The only hope nonChristians have to be part of the biblically defined eternal life is to discover Jesus before He returns to take his church home. Real loving Christians would hope you find Jesus before he returns so that you are not lost to eternity. Interestingly, as end times unfold, there has to emerge some other actions that would imply that world peace might be a possibility. Im thinking that since the Lord has allowed Donald Trump to become our president, that He might use Mr. Trump to begin this process. If the meeting between Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un ends up being consummated in Rome, Italy under the auspices of the Catholic Pope then this is consistent with my expectation of one end-time need. Eventually there somehow has to be a merger of certain common goals between the American Protestant Evangelicals and the Catholic Pope. World peace will be one of these common goals. So, I encourage you to be alert, vigilant and prepared for what is happening and what will continue to happen as the world around you unfolds.Jim Moore PaceWhats your view?

** Santa Rosa Press Gazette | Wednesday, March 14, 2018 B3 Press Gazette contributorMILTON „ Drivers from across the United States and Australia com-peted March 10 for the 30-pound Gator as the Lucas Oil Southern States Midgets Series held its annual Gator Dirt Nation-als at Southern Raceway. Competitive fields in all four classes put on shows for two nights with Sat-urdays races for the giant 30-pound gator. Taking home gators on Saturday were Chet Gehrke of the Midgets division, Jimmy Young for the 600 Mini Sprints, Jonathon Joiner for the 604 Crate Late Models and Reese Nowotarski for the Slingshots. Midget DivisionIn the Midget feature Chett Gehrke and Chase McDermand battled it out for the Gator. After McDermand almost lapped the entire field on Friday night, Gehrke made the necessary adjustments and stayed ahead of McDermand for the entire feature to claim the Gator. Cody Reed brought out the first two cautions of the race on laps two and three before debris brought out two more cautions. After McDermand, Reed Salony finished third fol-lowed by Andy Baugh and Jesse Vermillion to round out the top five. Friday night, McDermand stood out finishing a couple of seconds ahead of Gehrke followed by Baugh, Otto Scrape, and Ryan Fowler. Fowler, the former Open Wheeled Modified Cham-pion as Southern, received the opportunity to work with a midget team for the first time. 600 Mini Sprint DivisionIn the 600 Mini Sprint feature Saturday night, Jim Young show dominated the race. Youngs closest competitor was Robby Hoffman, who finished second on both nights. Saturday night, Young had to wait to put his hands on the Gator as a six-car pileup blocked the entire track on the first lap leading to a complete restart. Tyler Walker, running third at the time, got loose coming off of turn four and his spin resulted in five more cars crashing to bring out the red flag. No one was injured in the accident. The delay did nothing to disrupt the rhythm Young had found Saturday. Rounding out the top five Saturday were Micha McCall, Tim Nye, and Zack Corski. Friday night belonged to McCall, who started from the tail end of the field, to take the lead on lap 13 passing Robby Hoffman. Round-ing out the top five Friday were Young, Walker, and David Hall. 604 Crate Late Models DivisionIn the 604 Crate Late Models, a couple of early cautions shook up the entire field. Chris OConnor and Jonathon Joiner immediately took a big lead at the drop of the green flag but saw their lead disappear when Tucker Byrd brought out the first caution. On the subsequent restart, Kevin Jernigan came to a stop on the back stretch for caution two, while a second incident involving Benny Boudreaux, Blake Martin, and Matt Chavers occurred in turn four. Restart number three on lap three involved the leaders. Joiner got a great run off of turn two on the high side and was challenging OConnor in turn three. As both cars entered turn four, drivers made contact leading to OConnor spinning and bringing out the third straight caution. OConnor had to restart at the tail end of the field and Joiner was sent to the very back for causing the spin leaving both drivers 17 laps to get back to the front. Joiner picked his spots and managed to take the lead from James Ward in the waning laps of the feature, while OConnor came home in third. Martin and Boudreaux rounded out the top five. Slingshot divisionIn the Slingshot divi-sion, Washington States Reese Nowotarski dominated from the start of Friday and Saturdays features. Nowotarski finished both features will almost a straightaway advantage both nights ahead of Abby Cauley. Rounding out Saturdays top five were Levi Nelson, Brent Cartwright, and Dakota Fox. On Friday it was Cartwright, Fox, and Keegan Wright rounding out the top five. Coming upNext weekend Southern Raceway will host the Southern All-Star Super Late Models who will be featured March 16 and 17 in the 2nd Annual Spring Break Bash.

** B4 Wednesday, March 14, 2018 | Santa Rosa Press Gazette BUSINESSBy Press Gazette contributorCOLUMBUS „ Coastal Bank and Trust March 12 began transitioning to the Synovus brand name. Signage and other legacy branding at all Coastal Bank and Trust branches will be updated with Syn-ovus branding through the end of March.The Synovus Bank, formerly Coastal Bank and Trust, in Santa Rosa County is located at 4811 Highway 90 in Pace. Coastal Bank and Trust is one of 26 nonSynovus branded bank divisions to complete the footprint-wide brand transition, which will conclude in June 2018.Coastal Bank and Trust has been part of Synovus for three decades and were proud of the reputation weve built as a community-based and customer-focused bank in Pensacola, Valparaiso, and everywhere we operate,Ž Synovus market executive Eddie Norris said. Adopting the Synovus name while maintaining our local, relationship-cen-tered delivery model will increase awareness of our regional presence, our financial capabilities and our ability to meet the needs of customers and prospects.Ž Coastal Bank and Trust operates 17 branches in Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa, and Walton counties. Synovus entered the region with the acquisition of Valparaiso-based Vanguard Bank and Trust in 1989 and Bank of Pensacola in 1990, which were later renamed Coastal Bank and Trust. Both acquisitions were among more than 60 that would make Synovus Georgias second largest bank, with $31 billion in assets and a presence in five southeastern states.Synovus Bank, a Georgia-chartered, FDIC-insured bank, pro-vides commercial and retail banking, investment, and mortgage services together with its affiliates through 249 branches in Georgia, Ala-bama, South Carolina, Florida, and Tennessee. Synovus Bank was recognized as the Most Reputable BankŽ by American Banker and the Reputation Institute in 2017. Synovus Bank is on the web at synovus.com, and on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Instagram. Equal Housing LenderCoastal Bank and Trust begins transition to Synovus branding[PIXABAY.COM] Dear Dave, Some of the people I work with have been buying into a new kind of supplemental insurance that protects against layoffs. It costs about $30 a month per person, and the full payout if youre laid off is $9,000. It seems to me you would have to be paying in for a long time to see that kind of return, so I wanted to see how you feel about this kind of thing. „ Steve Dear Steve, Anytime insurance is there for some thing you could cover yourself, its a good idea to stop and remember that every insurance company is still a business. They must cover all the costs of operation, plus make a profit. Believe me, that takes a lot of money. Statistically speaking, if lots of people cashed in on a policy like this an insurance company would go out of business. Were talking about only $30 a month to cover $9,000. That alone tells you not many people cash in. Its gimmick insurance. On average, youre losing money when you buy insurance of any kind. Again, on average, over the scope of your lifetime youd be better off simply saving money and self-insuring against things like this. The only things I recommend buying insurance for are things you cant afford to cover personally. But you can afford to cover a layoff by saving an emergency fund of three to six months of expenses. If Im in your shoes, Steve, Im n ot buying that stuff. „ Dave Keep it in your own pocket Dear Dave, I just filed taxes, and it looks like Ill get a pretty big refund this year. A friend of mine told me I should adjust my withholding, so I dont get a refund. This seems pretty dumb to me. Why would I change my withholdings when Im getting money back? „James Dear James, The only reason youre getting a refund is because you had too much taken out of your paychecks in 2017. Lets say your refund is $3,500. Basically, you loaned the government $3,500 of your own money, interest-free. A refund isnt a gift or reward, James. Its your own cash that you get back because you paid in too much during the previous year. In your case, that adds up to almost $300 a month. Instead of loaning the government money that you worked hard to earn, wouldnt it be a better idea to keep it in your own pocket? „ Dave Dave Ramsey is CEO of Ramsey Solutions. He has authored seven bestselling books, including The Total Money Makeover.Ž The Dave Ramsey Show is heard by more than 13 million listeners each week on 585 radio stations and multiple digital platforms. Follow Dave on the web at daveramsey. com and on Twitter at @DaveRamsey.Layo insurance?Reader Question: My friend and I are thinking about buying a home together. We each have saved enough to pay 20 percent down on a $150,000 home, but by pooling our down payment, we could buy a $300,000 house. We may even invite a third person to join us. We live in a high-value market, and a $150,000 home would mean a long commute. We believe prices will continue to rise and by going in together, we can avoid the commute and start building equity much sooner. Is this a good idea? Montys Answer: The real estate market has fully recovered in most metropolitan areas. In some markets, the prices have reached new highs. Housing prices are out of reach for many potential homebuyers, even in markets that have not fully recovered. The shortage of inventory and the rising cost of new construction exacerbate home prices. The idea of buying a home together is not new. What is new is potential homebuyers are considering a larger pool of potential partners to join them in the purchase of a home. In the past siblings or significant others have been the primary partners in joint living arrangements. Today that group can also include old friends, new friends, co-workers, and parents that jointly own and live in the same house. Run it like a business The vision statement„ Will it be a party house, a monastery, or some combination? Start the conversation by seeking to understand in great detail the perception of each partner as to his or her vision of living in the house. Short of premarital counseling, but an honest discussion about interests, personal habits, pet peeves, working hours, how to deal with music, sound levels, overnight guests, pets, and much more are essential. If one of you is a neat freak, and another is messy, you will need a good set of house rules. The operational concept„ How will the living arrangement function? Do ownership interests have to be equal? Will we utilize a limited liability company or become tenants in common? How can one exit the agreement? How is value established at an exit? Can a party subdivide his or her interest? What happens if a partner becomes disabled or dies? If a partner leaves early, do they have to sell their share? Can a partner move out and rent their bedroom? Talk about your personal money issues, how to share food costs, how to pay bills, or if one partner loses a job and cannot fund their obligation? How will the household responsibilities be managed? Can the written house rules be included in the agreement? Organize the plan„ If you have made it this far, now it makes sense to chip in funds to engage legal counsel and seek feedback. Consider an attorney not acquainted with any of the participants, who would likely be representing an LLC or some other entity, rather than individual participants. When a draft document exists the participants can seek the opinion of his or her advisor. Also, consider providing your proposed house rules and operational concept to counsel in advance. Doing so will improve the quality of your initial meeting and may reduce the time required for discussion and to draft the documents. Do not be bashful about shopping for counsel. It is a good idea to ask for an estimate of time involved to accomplish the task, an hourly rate, and the expected delivery date of the documents. Arrange your financing„ There are many types of lenders. Because this twist of joint ownership is in its infancy, funding may require some sleuthing. There are a variety of methods already in existence and new startup companies that offer a range of new solutions. From making part of your down payment in exchange for equity to charging a fee to help set up your plan and introducing you to a lender, and other available options in between. Do an Internet search for new breed of equity sharing programsŽ to get started. Get educated and look for a house„ Whether joint ownership is a good idea for you and your potential partners is unknown at this point. Many individuals in the past have owned real estate jointly and done very well. Others have not done well. The chance for success is higher as you invest in learning about buying, holding, and selling real estate, and applying the knowledge to your situation.

Whether or not we get a loan at four percent or half a percent is dependant upon, in part, the communitys population... Looking at the numbers, I fully support the conclusions [Watkins] has drawn.ŽPowell made a motion at the March 5 Executive Com-mittee meeting to determine an amount to be spent on the wastewater treatment plant at the upcoming City Council meeting, and Councilman Jeff Snow seconded.
