The city has placed a Âno-thru-truck-zoneÂŽ sign on the corner of Berry-hill Road and Willing Street. According to Milton Chief of Police Tony Tindell, violators will be given warnings until September when the fines begin. The specific amount of the fine has not been determined yet, according to Tindell."I agree with the councilÂs decision regarding placing no-thru-truck signs on Berryhill and North Willing Street," Tindell said. "There have been numerous incidents, creating dangerous situations where large trucks leave the street at the right turn from West Bound Highway 90 onto North Will-ing and take out the electric cross walk sign. Anytime a vehicle leaves the road onto pedestrian sidewalks is a dan-gerous situation and it needs to stop."Councilwoman Peggi Smith said it was about time for the sign and she was in full sup-port of the sign being put up. According city ordinance, a no-thru-truck zone refers to a street or road on which trucks are prohibited. Milton takes steps to limit truck driving downtown This Âno thru trucksÂŽ sign at Berryhill and Willing Street along with Â“ nes is a city attempt to make streets safer, according to the Milton Police Department.

Santa Rosa County United Way has offered to help displaced resi-dents cover moving costs.Several residents filed an emergency motion against the water shut off proposing they pool their money and buy individual septic tanks for each trailer. First Circuit Judge David Rimmer denied the motion because the residents need the ownerÂs permission to make any changes to the property.However, the owner of the property, has failed to make repairs or respond toa civil complaint filed by the Florida Department of Health. Because of the septic system failure, the park cannot be permitted as a mobile home park.United Way grants and major gifts manager Kyle Holley estimates it will take $10,000 to $15,000 to move all the families that are still living at the mobile home park. The money will come from their disaster funds. "Poverty is a daily disaster," Holley said.

Some old-timers will remember the quotation, "We will bury you," spoken by Nikita Khrushchev in a speech delivered in Poland in November 1956. He went on to say, "We can say with assurance that your grandchildren will live under Socialism." As American writer, Mark Twain, said to a reporter in response to a report Twain had died, "The reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated." The United States of America can say the same. Considering the recent meeting of President Vladimir Putin of Russia and President Donald Trump of the U.S., it is good to point out there was a time when we had a really good reason to fear the Soviet Union. Alas, for them, that time has passed. Their threat to us on the world stage is largely in our minds. The Soviet Union that we feared has been gone since the Reagan years, more than 30 years ago. The old Soviet Union broke apart and left Russia standing alone. Yes, they have atomic capacity. However, the threat that was so real in the 1980s just isnÂt the same today. Can I justify the statement of Russia not being a threat to the U.S.? I can. Consider the following. I was reminded of the reality of war with a speech by Rhet Butler, famous blockade runner of the South, in the academy award winning film, "Gone with the Wind." He said, "Wars are won not with bravery or words. Wars are won with cannons and ships, cannons that can deliver explosives great distances and ships that can blockade ports. There isnÂt a ship building or cannon factory in the entire south. The north is full of them." Using that borrowed quotation as a base, letÂs take a look at the GDP (Gross Domestic Product) comparison between the U.S. and Russia. In short, letÂs compare the capacity for making war between the two countries. Today, the U.S. still ranks first in the world in GDP, followed by the European Common Market and China. No, Russia doesnÂt rank fourth. Russia, is no. 12, not even in the top 10. Even Italy has a greater GDP than Russia. Lest you think the numbers are close, the U.S. has more than 14 times the GDP capacity of Russia. If we add the capacity of NATO to that of the U.S. we have 27 times the economic capacity of Russia. Despite all the rhetoric and the current state of our national psyche, Russia doesnÂt want a war with us. So, what do they want? President Putin is intent on recouping the economic power of the old Soviet Union. That is what the incursion into Crimea four years ago was all about. He needed to insure that Russia had a port on the Black Sea that would give him easy access to the Mediterranean and the many potential trading partners in Southern Europe, Africa, and the mideast. RussiaÂs involvement in the four-year war in Syria is about access to cheap oil to fuel his ships and factories. What else does Russia want? They want the same thing that North Korea wants. They want status in the court of world opinion. One could say with assurance that North KoreaÂs venture into developing an atomic capacity and the intercontinental capability to deliver it to the U.S. was not about wanting a war with the U.S. Instead, it was about that same international spotlight Putin seeks. Proof? North KoreaÂs GDP ranks in the second hundred, less than $28 billion, of all the countries of the world. They donÂt want war with the U.S. They want the world to acknowledge their existence. So, what did the recent meetings do for North Korea and Russia? It accomplished exactly what their leaders wanted it to. What did it do for the U.S.? IÂll leave that judgement to history. My opinion? Not much.ÂWe will bury youÂWhat we voters deserve Dear editor, First, we voters donÂt deserve Robbie Williamson in office with another term. His documented past and present show a lack of character and inability to act responsible in all matters. He doesnÂt understand the difference between fact and fiction leading to a complete loss of trust and confidence in leadership. He doesnÂt understand who owns taxpayer money. We voters deserve to have Mr. David Piech as the next District 4 Commissioner. We voters need to restore trust, confidence and maturity in District 4 leadership.Gilbert Cichy, NavarreSocialism, Communism vs. Capitalism Dear editor, The idealistic thought of Democrat socialism is where everyone contributes, and then everyone benefits equallyÂ„a doctor earns as much as a trash manÂ„from those contributions within that society. But in todayÂs reality, is everyone that is receiving handout benefits actually contributing? No! When asked to contribute, what is their reply? No! The true definition for ÂsocialismÂŽ is Âa political and economic theory of social organization which advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the communityÂ„also known as governmentÂ„as a wholeÂŽ. The next definition states; Â(But in Marxist theory) it is a transitional social state between the overthrow of capitalism and the realization of communism.ÂŽ The definition of communism is Âa political theory derived from Karl Marx, advocating class war and leading to a society in which all property is publicly (government) owned and each person works and is paid according to their abilities and needs.ÂŽ Have and are Democrats advocating for class warfare? Yes! In the capitalist system, isnÂt each person already being paid according to their abilities and even paid more? Yes! But in socialism or communism, who determines their abilities and needs? Those in government who also determine their own wealth, not the individual also known as ÂWe the People!ÂŽ What event caused the largest communist nation in the world to move toward capitalism? The return of the largest Asian financial market being the capitalist system of Hong Kong from Britain after its 99-year lease ended in 1997 with China. ChinaÂs own embrace of capitalism has now made China the second largest economic system in the world in less than twenty years! What is it that China now knows that socialist Democrats donÂt by embracing socialism that takes the decisions of upward economic mobility out of the hands of ÂWe the PeopleÂŽ for government to now pick winners and losers. Socialist Democrats are doing this today with social pressure to boycott businesses trying to pick winners and losers amongst ÂWe the PeopleÂŽ based on indications of how you may vote!Steven King, MiltonHere are featured comments from our Speak Out hotline. LET HIM BUILD THE MOTOCROSS PARK I'd like to address Mr. Neptune's request for his Motocross park out there off of Munson highway. I think Mr. Neptune should be granted the Motocross and all of those that oppose the noise, the unwanted population, the littering etc. areÂ„most of what I can see that oppose it areÂ„dog hunters. Dog hunters have shanghaied the County Commission into writing a letter of support with their representative there, even to the point of our state representatives. There's not very many dog hunters and I think that the state representative, the County Commissioners, and everybody has been shanghaied to the point where they do not support private property owners' rights. So I want everybody around that part to get a good dose of what they don't want. I think Mr. Neptune should be granted his Motocross park and I thank you for printing this because it's my firm opinion. They want their cake and eat it, too. They have a level of: "Oh, I don't want this," and that's okay. But give them a good dose of putting something on people that they don't want, like private property owners. Thank you very much. Âƒ Mrs. Wolfe read a spot-on letter to the zoning committee and I think she was accurate in every point. But Daniel Wolfe, her husband, is the president of the Blackwater Dog Hunters Association. They're the ones that violate the private property owners' rights on Blackwater is so she can't have her cake and eat it, too. I believe that Mr. Neptune should be granted his park and all the chickens come home to roost on Mr. Wolfe's fence. To throw it all on the property owners and Blackwater but when it affects him, boy, do they holler.Billy Rogers We welcome Santa Rosa County residentsÂ comments on local issues.

** Santa Rosa Press Gazette | Wednesday, July 25, 2018 A7By John Hill More Content NowYou may have noticed something called a ÂSMASHÂŽ beer on the shelf at your local beer store. While the name sounds aggressive, this type of beer tends to be more subdued than your average brew. The term is actually an acronymÂ„S.M.A.S.H.Â„referring to beers containing a "single malt and single hop." Unlike most beers, which feature carefully-balanced and closely-guarded mixtures of various malted grain and hop types, SMASH beers highlight the unique qualities of an individual grain and hop paired, ideally, in simple harmony.Achieving this balance is more difficult than one might suspect. Much like a plain omelet reveals the skill of a chef, since it contains only a few ingre-dients prepared simply, SMASH beers offer little cover for off-flavors or poor technique. For a SMASH beer to achieve its aim, the choice of grain and hop variety must be made carefully and executed adeptly to showcase the qualities of each ingredient, both individually and in com-bination. Alongside the growing trend toward clean and unadorned craft lagers, the SMASH beer seems to be a vehicle for some brewers to dem-onstrate mastery through simplicity.Even the most basic pale ales and lagers typically employ a few different grain and hop types to produce an array of style-appropri-ate flavors and aromas. Stouts and brown ales will use blends of malted and toasted grains to achieve complex colors and aromas, while others employ wheat and oats to boost flavor and body. And until the relatively recent development of potent, multi-purpose hop strains, examples of commercial beers employing a single hop were incredibly rare. The use of different hops for bittering and aroma has been standard practice for years. The SMASH beer pushes against these foundational assumptions of brewing, trading an entire chorus of ingredients for an unaccompanied duet between barley and hops.There have been some recent local versions of this style, both relying on a simple pale barley malt as a base. Southern Tier makes its 2XSMASH beer with Mosaic hops while Genesee Brewing Company released a SMASH beer featuring Simcoe hops under its Genesee Brew House Pilot Batch label. But perhaps the most celebrated SMASH beer doesnÂt even bear this acronym on the label. FoundersÂ Mosaic Prom-ise combines Mosaic hops and Golden Promise malt from Scotland, producing a beer of considerable depth considering its simple recipe.This weekÂs recommendation: Mosaic Promise, a seasonal SMASH beer appearing on shelves by late July.

Deposits for rent, utilities and moving furniture can run well over $1,000, according to Holley. The disaster funds are available now. But Holley wants to replace that money in case a natu-ral disaster strikes our area. Some donations from private donors have already started coming in to augment the disaster fund.

** B2 Wednesday, July 25, 2018 | Santa Rosa Press Gazette SPORTSBy Betty MontgomeryMore Content NowLooking for a new twist to your garden? How about adding a plant or two that climbs, rambles or descends? Vines will add a new twist and using them in different ways could be fun. A climber can cover a wall, will soften or hide a chainlink fence, or decorate a tree. It can provide shade when over a pergola or privacy to a screen porch. Ramblers add a wonder-ful vertical element to any garden.You can choose an annual, a perennial or an evergreen vine. Growing vertically will give you more growing space since they take up very little ground area, something that is precious in many yards. They can give you a spectacular show of flowers that will delight any visitor to your garden with the clever ways to get these plants to grow.Annual vines grow quickly and cover an area rapidly if planted properly and given some fertilizer. You can have a climber scurry up any vertical object you want as long as you provide some support. Some climbers have tendrils the plant uses to self attach and some vines you will have to attach to the sup-port. You can also have an annual vine scamper over top of shrubs in a perennial border.Black-eyed Susan (Thunbergia) is a fast growing vine that will twine around the support that is provided. It has charming, dainty daisy-like flowers that are about an inch and a half in size and they come in shades of white, yellow and orange. The dark centers make them resemble the garden perennial blackeyed Susan, hence the name. They can be grown in the ground or in a con-tainer. They are touted as doing better in a container because they like to be pot-bound, which encourages more flowers.Morning glories are an easy vine to grow and an old favorite of mine. The clear blue color of the ones that decorated a mailbox down the street where I grew up, reminds me of my childhood. Morning glo-ries need little care and come in various colors. I would recommend grow-ing them on a structure where the dead vines can be easily removed in the fall. I grew them on a chain-linked fence for several years and they were great.Passion flowers (Passi-flora incarnata), another vine from my childhood have the more delicate, tantalizing bloom. I used to go on walks to find them growing wild in the open areas around our pond. Moonflower, which is usually grown from seed, is another great climber that has a lovely fragrance at night. Mandevilla, a popular vine that most garden centers sell, come in a lovely shade of pink or white. I grow mine in a pot, which I keep in the garage over the winter, but it is an annual in most areas.Then there are perennial vines like clematis, which are long lived and have beautiful flowers. There are many different kinds of clematis that will fit about any situation. Some clematis bloom in spring, while others flower at different times during the summer months. Sweet Autumn clematis is the last clematis to bloom in our garden and grows up a tree by our patio. Most clematis are deciduous, but there is one evergreen variety. Clematis take a year or two to get established and are worth the wait. I have seen some won-derful rambling roses growing up in trees and making the tree look like they had flowers. The English are an old hand at putting climbing roses near a fruit tree and letting the rose climb up through the tree, coming out the limbs, making the tree look like it is a big rose bush.If you are looking for an evergreen vine, there are several that will work if you live in a warmer area. Clematis armandii, Caro-lina jasmine, Confederate jasmine and smilax are choices to consider. These evergreen vines do well in zones 7, but IÂm not sure they will go far-ther north without a very protected place to grow. I do not recommend ivy because it is invasive where I live.These are things you need to know before you go shopping for the right vine for your location. What is the purpose? You also must decide if you want an annual, peren-nial or evergreen vine. Is the vine going to get full sun or a good bit of shade. Do you want something that will grow fast or are you willing to plant for the long term. Do you want the plant to support itself? Some climbers like passion flowers, use ten-drils to wrap themselves around a nearby support, some are self-clingers like a climbing hydrangea that adhere unaided to walls or trees and there are ramblers like roses, that need some support to continue climbing.One more thing to keep in mind is that the annual vine has a possible draw-back depending on where it is growing. An annual vine will weave itself in and out. If you let an annual vine like morning glories attach to a chain-linked fence, when they die, it will take some time to get the dead vine out of the fence. Removing them from a pole or let-ting them climb in a bush would make less work after they have faded away.You can see that there are lots of options. Figure out where you want a vine to grow and have fun at your local garden shop choosing just the right one. Vines will be a great addition to any spot and add a wonderful vertical element to any garden.

"I simply made a mistake and over drove (the car) into turn three on the last lap," Haugen said, who has dominated the vintage class with nine wins this season. "I completely slid up out of the groove and I couldnÂt get back into the gas."Crossley was excited about the win."When I set off in three and four, I was able to pull ahead off of turn four," he said. "I looked over towards him and he was clearly behind me. It was a great night of racing with a great group of folks."For Crossley, the win almost didnÂt happen when he nearly lost it and fell back to fifth place as the drivers raced back to the caution on lap 14."I ran out of talent," said Crossley. "I over drove (the car) coming out of three and going into four. I about spun myself out."Rounding out the top five were James Ward followed by Gueston Rogers and Jerry Bohlman.Saturday nightÂs action was used to bring awareness to cancer while also helping to raise funds for Travis Stowers and Bobbie Jean Joiner, who both are currently battling cancer.After the race, Crossley said his car number R2C stood for "Racing 2 Cure."In the Durance Layne Street Stocks, a broken part ended the night of HaroldÂs Frank Wilson.Wilson started the fea-ture from the pole and was pulling away from the field when a front suspension part broke on lap nine and ended his evening. Tim Fowler inherited the lead and never looked back when the race restarted with 11 laps remaining.Fowler never looked back despite a couple of late chal-lenges from Howie Reeves.Reeves finished second followed by Joseph Joiner, Brandon Kilpatrick, and Dylan Hamilton. The 602 Sportsman Late Model feature turned into more of a race of survivor as only four cars remained when the checkered flag waved compared to the 10 that started.Colton Leyendecker, who started from the pole, kept the lead and ran away from the field despite the six interruptions (cautions).Johnathon Joiner, who was penalized for jumping the start, worked his way back up to second fol-lowed by Joe Richbourg, Matt Chavers, and Jesse Barnhill who retired after an incident coming out of turn three.The Pure Stock division saw another strong showing from the "New York Nightmare" Tally Warrick. After starting third in the field, it took only 10 laps for him to find the front of the field and never look back.Warrick built a 12-car length advantage during the final eight laps of the feature over a hard charg-ing John Bryant.Jessica Donaldson finished third followed by Jake Moore and Dalton Morrison.Joseph Phillips had an easy time in the open-wheeled modified feature as he had the entire field trying to catch him.Phillips felt some early pressure from former track champion Ryan Fowler, but that ended when Fowler and Osman Jones got together on lap four.After the dust settled from the early cautions Kevin Mitchell finished second followed by Justin Able, Lucas Morris, and Robo Hutchinson.In the Stinger class Rus-sell Estain recovered from a spin on lap two and won the feature.Estain, who started on the outside of row three, slowly worked his way through the field and on lap 15 took the lead away from Timothy Witherington and never looked back.Witherington finished second followed by Aaron Emmons in his Mini Cooper, Hunter Lewis, and Charlie Simmons.Crossley edges Haugen in vintage feature at Southern RacewayThese delicate, dainty bells are Clematis Betty Corning.

** Santa Rosa Press Gazette | Wednesday, July 25, 2018 B3 By Press Gazette contributorTALLAHASSEE Â„ Twenty federally threatened eastern indigo snakes have just been released in northern Florida at The Nature ConservancyÂs Apalachicola Bluffs and Ravines Preserve (ABRP) as part of a collabora-tive endeavor to return the native, nonvenomous apex predator to the region. The release of the snakes marks the second year in a row of the reintroduction effort, and furthers the long-term joint plan of multiple nonprofit, agency, and academia part-ners to restore this important species to the region.The Nature Conservancy, Central Florida ZooÂs Orianne Center for Indigo Conservation, Auburn Uni-versity, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Com-mission (FWC), U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, The Orianne Society, Joseph W. Jones Ecological Research Center, Gulf Power, Southern Com-pany through the National Fish and Wildlife Founda-tion, and the Fish & Wildlife Foundation of Florida are dedicated to supporting the recovery of this species. The eastern indigo snake is the longest snake native to North America and an iconic and essential component of the now rare southern longleaf pine forest. The partners have worked together for decades to restore and manage the habitat required by the snake, and many other species, to make the release possible.The eastern indigo serves a critical function to balance the wildlife community Â… it consumes a variety of small animals including both ven-omous and nonvenomous snakes. At over 8 feet long, this impressive snake often relies upon gopher tortoise burrows for shelter. The snakes were historically found throughout southern Georgia, Alabama, eastern Mississippi, and throughout Florida, though their range is now far more restricted.Largely eliminated from northern Florida due to hab-itat loss and fragmentation, the indigo was last observed at ABRP in 1982, until 2017 when 12 snakes were released to the preserve. This yearÂs annual release is part of a 10-year commitment to the speciesÂ recovery and contin-ues a focus on establishment of healthy ecosystems through collaborative land, water and wildlife conserva-tion efforts."We continue our dedication to creating a healthy, balanced, and restored long-leaf pine ecosystem at the ConservancyÂs Apalachicola Bluffs and Ravines Preserve and throughout the region, to encourage the recovery of the eastern indigo snake and support many other impor-tant plants and wildlife," said Temperince Morgan, Execu-tive Director of The Nature Conservancy in Florida. "This second annual release results from the teamwork of an incredible group of partners."ABRP is the only site in Florida currently designated for indigo reintroduction. The 6,295-acre nature preserve in northern FloridaÂs Liberty County protects a large longleaf pine landscape carved by numerous seepage streams. Located in the Apalachicola Bay region along the Apalachicola River, the preserve lies in the center of one of five biological hotspots in North America. This trea-sure trove of species diversity is unique to Florida and home to a disproportionate number of imperiled species. The pre-serve is a living laboratory for the development of novel restoration techniques and land management excellence, dedicated to natural commu-nity restoration, preservation of biodiversity, and educa-tion and training.The longleaf pine ecosystem is one of the most diverse ecosystems globally, yet only 5 percent of this precious landscape remains. Over the past 30 years, The Nature Conser-vancy has employed science and technical expertise to develop the state-of-the-art groundcover restoration process that is now used by state, federal and private partners across the southeast to restore longleaf pine habitat. This restoration, combined with the ConservancyÂs robust prescribed fire program, has resulted in improved longleaf habitat on over 100,000 public and private north Florida acres in recent years.Longleaf pine restoration is also a top priority at places like the Apalachicola National Forest and Torreya State Park Â… both neighbors to ABRP and supported by the U.S. Forest Service and Florida Department of Environmental Protection.Bred and raised by the Orianne Center for Indigo Conservation, the world's foremost comprehensive-based conservation organization dedicated to reptiles and amphibians, the 20 young snakes Â… 12 males and eight females Â… have most recently been living in outdoor enclosures that allowed them to be exposed to a more natural environment in preparation for their release. The snakes have been implanted with radio transmitters by the Central Florida Zoo's vet staff to allow for tracking and monitoring. Data is still being transmitted and collected from the snakes that were released last year to help inform recovery efforts. "The Central Florida ZooÂs Orianne Center for Indigo Conservation is proud to aid in the recovery of the eastern indigo snake in Florida," said Michelle Hoffman, Deputy Director of the Orianne Center for Indigo Conservation. "This second annual release of 20 animals puts us one step closer to achieving our goal of reestablishing this species in the Florida Panhandle."The Orianne Society was integral in the creation of the indigo snake reintroduction team and continues to play a role in reintroducing eastern indigo snakes into places they no longer occur. The Society works to conserve critical ecosystems for imperiled reptiles and amphibians, using science, applied con-servation, and education.Auburn UniversityÂs Alabama Natural Heritage Program continues to bring knowledge to planning reintroduction efforts and expertise in onsite monitoring of the reintroduced snakes. Using radio telemetry, researchers can track the animalsÂ movements, habitat selection and behavior. One of the eastern indigo snakes that was released in 2017 traveled over a mile from where it was initially released. The monitoring program is sup-ported in part by The Joseph W. Jones Ecological Research Center, whose mission is to understand, demonstrate and promote excellence in natu-ral resource management and landscape conservation in the southeastern coastal plains.The indigo reintroduction efforts are supported by grants and other funding, including a Conserve Wildlife Tag Grant from the Fish & Wildlife Foundation of Florida, funded through purchase of Conserve Wild-life Florida license plates and designated for conservation of non-game species and the habitats that support them."The release of 20 eastern indigo snakes is another step forward toward our goal of reestablishing this iconic imperiled species back into the habitats of northwest Florida," said Kipp Frohlich, the FWCÂs Director of Habi-tat and Species Conservation. "ItÂs a testament to what can be accomplished working together with many commit-ted conservation partners."Additional funding to sup-port the reintroduction has been provided by Gulf Power, and Southern Company through the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation."All of the pieces have come together Â… the protection and management of the landscape, the advancement of the animal husbandry exper-tise to raise young snakes for release, and the development of the science necessary to make good decisions and monitor project success. This project is an exceptional example of a strong partner-ship dedicated to success," said David Printiss, North Florida Program Manager of The Nature Conservancy in Florida. "The restoration is complete, the snakes are flourishing, and the monitor-ing program is well equipped and ready Â… all systems are go!"Throughout the state, the Conservancy continues to pursue conservation proj-ects and support policy that protects natural systems for people and wildlife. Next yearÂs snake release will be scheduled for summer 2019 Â… stay tuned.Multiple partners collaborate to return endangered snake to Northwest FloridaMichelle Hoffman with the Orianne Center for Indigo Conservation stands with an indigo snake at ABRP.
