** Santa Rosa Press Gazette | Wednesday, May 16, 2018 A3By Lt. j.g. Luke Rague NAS Whiting Field MILTON„ Lt. j.g. Payden Roberts of Jay, formerly of Milton, earned his Wings of Gold onboard Naval Air Station Whiting Field in a cere-mony on April 27.Roberts, who said both towns hold a special place in his heart, is deeply rooted in the areas surrounding NAS Whiting Field. Roberts and his family lived in Milton for most of his childhood, where he attended the Pensacola Christian Academy, Bagdad Elementary School and Avalon Middle School. After sixth grade, they moved north to the small town of Jay, where Roberts graduated from Jay High School.ŽTechnically, I could call Milton my hometown,Ž Roberts said. But I most often say Jay. Its where my immediate family still lives and where I would say I really grew up the most. Plus, its almost a conversation piece. Since no one knows where it is, I get to tell them about it.ŽRoberts lived the clas-sic, small-town-America childhood of close-knit friendships, town pride, and baseball. I do love where I grew up and where Im from,Ž he said. The relationships are really what attach me to this place. Even after moving, I am still able to keep in touch with my friends from Milton and Pace, mostly through baseball.ŽBut living just west of the busiest airspace in the world is a severe departure from classic small-town America. Roberts says there is no wonder where the idea to fly for the Navy origi-nated. Roberts hardly went a day without thinking about aviation, between the Blue Angels ripping through the sky, numerous visits to the National Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola, a week at Starbase Atlan-tis onboard NAS Whiting Field in fifth grade, and his family home being located directly under the T6-B Texan II course-rules for forma-tion flights.ŽI have been watching the orange and white planes and helicop-ters fly over my head my entire life,Ž Roberts said. Its always been my dream.ŽYet, there was an even stronger contribu-tor to Roberts decision.Just as much or more influence came from my familys prior service,Ž he said.Nine members of Roberts immediate and extended family are serv-ing or have served the nation through military service, in the ranks of the Navy, Marine Corp, Air Force, Army and Coast Guard. With rep-resentation in all military branches, Roberts could have claimed family tra-dition in any one. But he was especially drawn to the Navy, following the steps of his grandfather, retired Lt. Cmdr. Joel Roberts Sr.ŽThe person who really sparked my interest in all of this, and the Navy in general, was my grandfather on my fathers side,Ž Roberts said. He served 30 years in the Navy, enlisting and then earning his commission through Officer Candi-date School.Ž Roberts grandfather passed away when Roberts was eleven, but his family had a sur-prise for him after the winging ceremony.I remember always asking him to show me his sword, which I thought was so cool. Unbeknownst to me, my father actually found my grandfathers 57-year-old sword and cleaned it up,Ž Roberts said. He was then presented the sword as a gift, fol-lowing a Navy tradition.It was a pretty emotional moment, as both family and tradition are very important to me.ŽRoberts was pinned at the ceremony by his father, Joel Roberts Jr., and was joined on stage by his mother, Laurie Roberts, sister, Jescie Roberts, girlfriend, Emily Dobson, and his mothers father, Army veteran Harvey Beard. Like a number of other local natives who recently earned their wings at NAS Whiting Field, Roberts did not immediately pursue a career in the military through the Naval Academy or the Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC). Unable to pursue another passion baseball, Roberts spent his freshman year at the University of West Florida studying business administration.ŽIt pained me knowing that I definitely had the skill to play baseball at the collegiate level,Ž Rob-erts said. I didnt really know how college base-ball worked at the time, but by the time I knew what was going on as far as recruiting and trying out, the time had already passed to go to some of those smaller colleges I was most interested in.ŽBut he kept practic-ing, dragging friends out to the Jay baseball field throughout the summer after freshman year in an effort to keep his skills sharp. After months of hard work, he was offered a baseball scholarship at Emmanuel College in the small town of Franklin Springs, Georgia.Only after earning a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration in 2015 did he reach out to a local Navy recruiter.Rob-erts ended up working with the same recruiter as another recent NAS Whiting Field winger, Lt. j.g. Tyler Mayor of Navarre, Florida. Since recruitment, Roberts and Mayor have followed very similar paths. Both were at Officer Candidate School at the same time, both flew the T6-B in Training Squadron Twenty-Seven (VT-27) in Corpus Christi, Texas, and both earned their Wings of Gold flying the TH-57 Sea Ranger out of Helicopter Training Squadron Eight (HT-8) within two weeks of each other.ŽGoing through flight school proved to be mentally, physically, and spiritually challenging,Ž Roberts said. As with anything, Id have good days, and days that may not have been so good. Through this, I feel like I really started to realize what mattered most to me in my life things such as my faith and my family, things that I really clung to and supported me and helped me push through and strive to be the best that I could be.ŽJay Royal becomes naval aviator, headed to JapanLt. j.g.

** A4 Wednesday, May 16, 2018 | Santa Rosa Press GazetteMedicare began mailing out new Medicare cards to members, according to Hearn.This new card has a unique number,Ž she said. Old cards had the members social security number, which put them at a higher risk of fraud.Ž Hearn said that Florida was not on the first wave of cards being mailed out. Members should be looking for them in the mai.The new cards will be paper. Upon receiving the new ones, Hearn advised destroying the old card immediately.Seniors can call 4947101 to speak with a SHINE representative for more information.Hearn said SHINE also needs volunteers.Anyone inter-ested in being a counselor can call 494-7100 or visit www.FloridaSHINE.org. Volunteers may learn new skills, meet new people, and gain knowledge about Medicare.View Hearns full interview at www.srpressgazette.com. SHINEFrom Page A1 Kelsei Garrett, a friend of the Harrell family, helped organize the vigil.As a mother of four, Garrett said her heart breaksŽ for the family and she knew she had to do something.Losing a child is a trag-edy, but losing a child in this way, theres nothing that can compare,Ž she said. These children were amazing kids, and there was not a person who didnt enjoy being around them.ŽMichaela and Stormie, along with Michaelas best friend, 18-year-old McKenzie Murphy, were riding in an SUV driven by Michaela and Stormies mother, 39-year-old Mel-anie Harrell, just past 5:30 p.m. on Sunday, May 6. At the same time, authorities say 35-year-old Kailen Kelly of Crestview was drunk and speeding down the road, ignoring a deputys attempts to pull him over.According to the Santa Rosa County Sheriffs Office, the deputy who tried to pull Kelly over after spotting him driving erratically ended his pursuit to try and decrease the risk to other drivers. Just minutes after ending the pursuit, however, the deputy crested a hill and saw a cloud of smoke and debris. Investigators say Kellys truck struck Melanies SUV before wrecking in a ditch. All four occupants of Mel-anies car had to be pulled from the wreckage by first responders. Michaela and Stormie were the only fatalities; their mother, Melanie, was taken to Sacred Heart Hospital with serious injuries, as was Michaelas friend McKen-zie. McKenzie was treated for her injuries and released on Monday, May 7, while a spokesman for the hospital said Monday, May 14 that Melanie had been released as well.Kelly is being held in the Santa Rosa County Jail without bond on sev-eral charges relating to the crash, including two counts of DUI manslaughter. He has a hearing Tuesday morning at the county courthouse in Milton, where the State Attorneys Office is slated to argue for pretrial detention, keeping Kelly in jail until his trial.But there was no mention of Kelly at the candlelight vigil, nor much talk about the crash itself. Instead, people shared their memories of the girls and surrounded the family with love and prayers.I wanted Matt (Harrell, the girls father) and Melanie to be aware that the community is mourning with them for the loss of their girls,Ž said Lindsay Lowe, another organizer of the vigil. Were here to love on them and support them through this tragedy.ŽMatt attended the vigil, as did other members of the family and McKenzie, Michaelas friend. After a pastor said a few words and prayed with the crowd, all the vigil attendees gath-ered around the family and embraced them as prayers were said over them.Were grieving because ... were prematurely sep-arated, and its hard, and those things are difficult and it is (painful),Ž said Randy Hamil, pastor of Northridge Church. But (Michaela and Stormie) are at home in Heaven, theyre in our destination already.Ž VIGILFrom Page A1Michaela Dowdy, 17, poses with her little sister, Stormie Harrell, 7, before Michaelas high school prom.

While such bloviating might play to the fan base, it is fantasy to think a ban would stop reporters from filing stories. If he doesnt believe it, then he should do it. There isnt a leader alive or dead who has enjoyed media scrutiny, who hasnt complained about reporters questions, angles and motives. Most, however, understand why a free press is a necessity. From this countrys beginning, politicians have tossed choice and unprintable words at reporters, but none of any substance has ever crossed the Rubicon by describing the press as the "enemy of the people." Thats despot talk. Biggest threat Every cause for change, every step of progress this country has made, from ending slavery to defeating dictators, was first taken up by the press. Were here today because colonial-era newspapers pressed the cause for independence long before the Continental Army was organized. We see every day what happens in countries where theres no such thing as a free press. Its not a coincidence that some of the richest people on earth exert power in countries where a free press doesnt exist. An officeholder who promises to serve one or two terms suddenly becomes "president for life." Those journalists who try to expose corruption suddenly turn up dead. Right now, the biggest threat to this country is not the press, but those who have figured out they can sow chaos by using that which resembles journalism just enough to fool, anger and frighten us. What makes us unique is that free speech is the first thing we enshrined, right out of the gate. President John F. Kennedy noted the press is the only industry specifically protected by the Constitution. Was the media of Kennedys own day derelict in not covering some of his issues? Yes. The current president contends the media ignores or underreports the administrations successes, but then steps on his own narrative because he cannot resist settling scores, real and imagined. It isnt enough to tout employment statistics or possible peace with North Korea. It must be done while denigrating others. Breaking news is broken Media is a public service, but its also a business. Consumers have every right to refuse to patronize those which fail in their duty. But thats not a call for a president to make. I recently met a Canton (Ohio) Repository reader who is concerned that news is in danger of being swallowed up by a nonstop flow of opinion, rather than straight reporting. Shes right. Because of a push for profits, the constant feeding of social media and fear of a 24-hour hole, cable news outlets in particular create smash-ups using with so-called experts, and the facts are getting lost in the yelling, histrionics and finger-pointing. Other outlets constantly tout "breaking news" as to render the term meaningless. Yet with all this, imagine trying to find out whats going on in the world without people who are willing to search for information and report it. Now, maybe youre thinking that wouldnt be the worst thing. But what happens when the people you support no longer hold power? If the press is permitted to be harassed, threatened and bullied out of doing its job, it wont stop with us. It will end at you trying to explain why you said what you said about the government while sitting at your own kitchen table.GUEST COLUMNBan media? Be careful what you wish for C h a r i t a M G o s h a Charita M. Gosha "There's no free ride in this carnival world." „ from "Carnival World," as performed by Jimmy BuffettRemember when we used to be concerned about the national debt? Back then folks were only arguing about single-digit trillions. The current amount? You don't want to know. OK, it's more than $21 trillion. And counting. It's scary. If you don't believe me, go to usdebtclock.org and watch how fast we add $100,000 to the national debt. It happens in less time than it's taken you to read this far. Seriously. Some economists say that this level of debt, fueled by annual large deficits, isnt all bad. A government with a fiat currency (one where it can always print money and inject it into the economy) does not necessarily need to balance its annual budget in the way you and I do in our personal households. For us to have money, we must generate it through jobs, investments or the sale of businesses or real estate. The government can just crank up the printer. So granted, comparing Congressional spending to our household spending is like comparing apples to oranges. The reason a stable country like the United States can borrow money so easily is because, in some form or other, we can always repay what we owe. If we really wanted to, we could simply print enough money to pay off all our debt tomorrow. But we choose to carry the debt instead, because printing that much money would devalue our currency significantly and likely leading to hyperinflation. So until the United States simply cant pay off its debt without having to run our money printing machines overtime, we should be able to borrow money at relatively low rates for the foreseeable future. But there certainly must reach a point where a countrys debts start to look suspect, right? Carmen Reinhart and Ken Rogoff, national debt experts, cite 90 percent debt-to-GDP as the level at which debt starts to erode growth. Weve recently passed that mark. Even so, some are not overly concerned about the national debt. At every new trillion dollar mark people were lamenting the end of the republic under the crushing debt load. Japan is the most indebted developed economy in the world, yet borrows at rates lower than we do. We doubled the debt during the Great Recession while attempting to revive the economy. During that crisis, practical choices regarding adding to the debt were few and far between. Interest payments, though, are a concern. In 10 years, interest on the national debt is expected to reach almost a trillion dollars annually. That would make it almost 15 percent of the federal budget. Anyone who has ever paid off a large credit card debt will tell you, that's an untenable situation. Margaret R.

The healthy baby girl, named Katana was born after a 16-month pregnancy to Katie an 8-year-old female white rhino, early in the morning on Janu-ary 20th.The Zoo has been hope-ful for this birth since father rhino, Robbie was introduced to the Zoo in 2013 from the Center for Conservation of Tropi-cal Ungulates, a breeding sanctuary in Florida.Zookeepers had been monitoring the mother, Katie, closely for several months before she gave birth. Both mom and baby are very healthy they say.Katana is gaining weight at a rate of around 10 pounds per day. She is full of energy and can be seen playfully romping around with her mother.Rhino calves are born weighing between 80 and 140 pounds. Fully grown females like mother, Katie, weigh roughly 3,000 to 4,000 pounds, while adult males like Robbie weigh up to 5,000 pounds.Wild rhinos are facing the worst poaching streak in history, leaving less than 20,000 Southern white rhinos in the wild.Despite their name, white rhinos are actually grey in color, with two horns on the bridge of their head.Some cultures falsely believe rhino horns, which are made of keratin like our fingernails, can cure diseases. This leaves wild rhinos severely vul-nerable and without continued conservation efforts. It is estimated the wild populations will be extinct in less than 20 years."When a species is this endangered, every birth is special but weve waited a long time for this particular baby so we're thrilled" said Director Jesse Pottebaum.Katana and her rhino family are currently available for viewing daily from the guided train ride, weather dependent, from 9 a.m.to 4 p.m.Gulf Breeze Zoo welcomes baby rhinoBaby rhinoceros, Katana, was born to Katie an 8-year-old female white rhino, early in the morning Jan. 20.

There are several easy steps homeowners can take to reduce the chances their property becomes a sta-tistic. Hurricane season begins June 1.Hurricane season begins shortly so Florida homeowners should consider the following do-ityourself tips to protect their property:€ Install storm shutters to protect win-dows from strong winds.€ Identify somewhere to secure outdoor items like furniture, garden tools, toys and garbage cans. Strong winds can turn these items into pro-jectiles that may damage homes and cause injuries.€ Clean gutters and downspouts. Leaves, twigs and debris can clog them and prevent rainwater from efficiently draining away from homes. € Buy flood insurance.

The site is being built about one-quarter mile from Andersons home, and adjacent to a currently unoccupied piece of property he owns.Police Commander Andrew Schneider down-played the impact of the shooting range on neigh-boring properties.The majority of the time, the range will be silent,Ž Schneider said. Its not going to be utilized as much as its perceived.ŽSchneider estimated that the firing range would be in use 12 to 13 days out of the year, with the worst-case scenario being 45 days. CPD will also use the range for other types of training, including SWAT training and K-9 training.There will be some days where well be out there for the majority of the day, especially for SWAT train-ing,Ž Schneider said. But there are some months where we wont utilize the range at all.ŽAt the April meeting, Anderson suggested moving the proposed site to a nearby, city-owned wastewater spray field.

And I get 10 times back what I give.ŽMullins first became the Grinch about seven years ago during pharmacy school at the East Tennessee State Uni-versity. It was finals week and students were stressed and eager to go home for Christ-mas vacation.I ordered a Grinch costume online and wore it to my last final,Ž Mullins said. It became expected of me to wear it to each final every year.ŽWhen Mullins family made the move to Navarre, he fol-lowed. It wasnt long before he took the Grinch suit out for a test run in the Navarre com-munity. His first appearance was at the annual Christmas parade and from there he started getting more requests. Hes appeared at Christmas in July events, home visits to kids during the Christmas season, the Navarre Beach Mardi Gras parade and was even asked to visit a bachelor-ette party. That is the oddest request to date, he said.I was going to buy some tear-away pants, but I ended up not being able to make it,Ž Mullins said with a laugh. In the past couple of years, Mullins has added a few cos-tume changes to the Grinch. Alongside his pharmacy training, Mullins has also become skilled at sewing and dying his costume that unmistakable green.Since he was doing more appearances outside of the Christmas season, hes added a Hawaiian print shirt and shorts combo and Uncle Sam suit to the Grinchs closet. This weekend hell be at the military appreciation picnic in Navarre Park wearing a dress and floppy hat to go with the Mothers Day theme. One thing he wont wear is a military uniform, something Mullins said he hasnt earned the right to do.ŽIts not a big secret that Mullins is the Grinch in Navarre. Jason is his secret identity, he joked.Mullins tries to grant every request and he never takes a cent. He stocks up year-round on toys to hand out to kids. You might find him digging through the clearance bins with armloads of fidget spin-ners or squirt guns. He keeps all of his Grinch-related items in a storage locker.I dont take donations of toys because I dont want to take away from charities like Toys for Tots or angel trees,Ž he said.At events, Mullins said he often gets a positive response from fans of the Dr. Seuss character. The best compliment he regularly gets is You gave me my Christmas spirit.ŽSometimes children scream, some just associate me as a giant, green teddy bear,Ž he said. Once an 80-year-old woman came up to me, crying. Her son, who had Down syndrome, loved the Grinch character. She had lost her son but said that seeing me was almost like having him there.ŽMullins said he doesnt mind being the butt of the joke „ or the Grinch of the party.

Im disabled, so I was not able to keep them warm when we had the 10-degree weather.ŽAlso, his farm at the time did not have an irrigation system installed, meaning he could not spray the trees with water that would have frozen and protected them.Today, New continues to grow other types of fruit, including pears, peaches, apples and blackberries, as well as cucumbers, okra and other vegetables.While they might never come close to competing with the much warmer Central and South Florida counties in terms of production, Okaloosa, Santa Rosa and neighboring counties are quite capable of growing certain variet-ies of citrus.As New knows all too well, extreme cold is one of the biggest challenges to growing citrus in the Panhandle.In Okaloosa, We have a lot of families with back-yard citrus throughout the county,Ž said Jennifer Bearden, agriculture agent at the University of Floridas Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences Extension Office in Crest-view. Ive looked at trees in the Niceville area and Fort Walton Beach, and up here on the north end. Naval and blood oranges are the ones Ive seen people be successful with. But they understand that in some years, the winter is too tough to grow them.ŽWhile the extension office does not have estimates on the number of citrus trees in the local area, Bearden said she knows of a handful of local citrus growers who sell their fruit at farmers markets.One of them, Wami Grove by Milton, is working to expand its grove of Sat-suma mandarins in hopes of selling the fruit wholesale.Cold-hardyNews farm is more than 300 miles from Alachua County, which is one of the northernmost counties in Florida's northern commercial citrus production area. Farther south are the Sunshine States largest citrus-pro-ducing counties of Polk, De Soto and Hendry.Florida ranks first in the United States in the value of production of oranges and grapefruit, according to the Institute of Food and Agri-cultural Sciences. During the states 2016-17 season, almost 437,000 acres of citrus were grown, produc-ing about 78 million boxes of fruit. Ninety percent of that harvest was processed into juice and the rest was sold as fresh fruit.For much of Florida, the grapefruit season typi-cally runs from September through June, and the orange season typically runs from October through June, according to the Flor-ida Department of Citrus. The start of those seasons might begin a little later in the local area, Bearden said.In addition to being warmer than the Panhandle, Central Florida has loamy soil that is more suitable for citrus growing than the sandier and more clay-filled soil in the north-ern areas, said Greg Tomso, founder and director of the University of West Floridas Community Garden in Pensacola.Because were a cooler climate, its important to find the appropriate type of rootstock to grow the citrus trees,Ž he said. Most of the citrus trees we grow here are graftedŽ with parts of cold-hardy species.Because they are better shielded from the extreme cold, Fort Walton Beach and other coastal areas are more suited to growing some varieties of oranges and grapefruit, Meyer lemons and other types of citrus, than Crestview and areas farther north, Bearden said.For homeowners who are newcomers to growing citrus, Bearden advises that they plant their trees on the south side of their house or south of established trees, which serve as windbreaks against cold northerly winds, and to cover their trees when it temperatures dip to near freezing.Tomso said there is a large and growing interest on the Panhandle in edible landscaping.People are hugely inter-ested in growing local, and you cant get more local than your backyard,Ž he said. You can grow citrus in the Panhandle if you know what youre doing.ŽTomso learned over time the best ways to grow a Meyer lemon tree, which he bought many years ago from a big-box store. He said planted the tree in full sun and initially watered it like crazyŽ but fed it too much fertilizer.Now, I feed it once a year,Ž Tomso said. I got 700 giant lemons on it last year. My lemons are the size of softballs.ŽFortunately, and unlike in many parts of Central and South Florida, no citrus trees in the local area have been found to be infected with deadly citrus green-ing or canker, Bearden said.I think (citrus canker) will get here if we dont find a way to stop it,Ž she said.Spreading outIn 2015, Cody English and his family planted the first 3 acres of Satsuma mandarin trees for their upstart Wami Grove, which is about 10 miles north of Milton and named after the nearby 10-acre Lake Wami thats owned by Englishs father.The mandarins are seed-less, easy to peel and a little bigger than a tennis ball, Cody English said.Hopefully, this year or next year well have an additional 7 acres,Ž he said. Were starting out local and hope to spread out from there as our trees get bigger and produce more and more.ŽWhile English has sold many of his mandarins and kumquats at farmers markets, he plans to have a U-pick operation at his grove and be able to start wholesale production in about 2020.He said the U-pick oper-ation would be part of the agritourismŽ opportuni-ties that already exist in the area, including a corn maze and the Santa Rosa Ranch, which offers hayrides, a petting zoo and other attractions.The expanded, 10-acre Wami Grove will have about 1,000 mandarin trees and eventually could produce about 350,000 pounds of fruit each season, English said. He envisions partnering with a packing house in Marianna and selling and distributing his fruit around Santa Rosa County, neighboring coun-ties and elsewhere.Citrus trees grew abun-dantly in north Santa Rosa County until they were devastated by a freeze in the 1920s, English said. Afterward, many growers switched to growing peanuts and other crops, he said.Our rootstock is one of the most cold-hardy,Ž he said.To protect against extremely cold air, Wami Grove uses low-volume sprinklers that mist each of its trees. The water becomes ice that insulates the graft union between the rootstock and the scion, or upper part of the combined tree.Protecting against the scourge of citrus canker and greening will require the hand of God as well as new scientific breakthroughs, English indicated.He said hes putting a lot of hope and faith in the University of Florida for research into disease-resistant rootstock. And, Were just hoping and praying for the grace of God so it doesnt spread up to here,Ž English said.Citrus growing, NWF-styleDespite the cold, citrus trees do grow in Northwest Florida if youre carefulLa-ong Jowers picks lemons from a tree in the backyard of her home in Shalimar in this Daily News “ le photo.[FILE PHOTO/DAILY NEWS] SPORTS

So far, through her efforts she has helped to collect over 66 pounds of food for the food pantry.Minturn has been going to each grade at her school giving presentations on food pantries and why they are important to the community. Her inspiration was a brochure for the pantry, according to her grandmother, Navarre resident Chris Hinson. My husband and I are both Air Force vets,Ž Hinson said. We were donating and we brought a brochure to our daughter. Jadylyn saw it and was curious.ŽMinturn wanted to help. She started collecting food but decided that wasnt enough. So she developed a presen-tation and began speaking in classrooms at her school and at the Pace karate studio she attends, Martial Arts America. I thought maybe if I can make this big,Ž Minturn said, bigger things can happen. One small step makes the biggest difference. Think small, not big.ŽThe Food for Vets food pantry is located at 1839 Cowen Road in Gulf Breeze.

Johnson and the county commissioners continue discussing expanding the jail but one-time costs to build and reoccurring staff-ing costs continue to be sticking points.Johnson and Major Randy Tifft approached the Santa Rosa County commissioners at the May 7 Santa Rosa County Commissioner Committee meeting with an update of a proposed county jail expansion. The discussion included options to increase inmate capacity at the jail facilities. Currently, the maximum capacity for inmates at the jail is 682. By 2025 Johnson estimates the average population to be 925.One short-term solution is to create a work-release building, which would be able to house 120 inmates rais-ing the max jail capacity to 802, according to Johnson. The total cost for fully operating the jail annex annually, Johnson said, would be approximately $1.7 million.Tifft said that they have to make sure that they have the funds required to hire the staff needed for the needed expansion. We need to instill a sense of urgencyBy Press Gazette contributorMILTON „ The Sandy Sansing Dealerships announce the opening of Sandy Sansing Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, a new deal-ership for the group located in Milton.The Sandy Sansing Dealerships April 30 purchased the dealership, formerly known as Milton Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram.
