From staff report
This Saturday is the first of two
opportunities to fish without a
license in Florida's freshwater
ponds, lakes, rivers, streams and
canals. The second freshwater li-
cense-free day will be Saturday,
June 8.
You do not have to be a Flori-
da resident to take advantage,
according to Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion resources.
In fact, officials there encour-
age Floridians to gather up their
friends and family from other
states and enjoy the day togeth-
er. I's a prime outdoor opportu-
nityfor the occasional fisherman
who may hesitate to spend mon-
ey on a license, and for primarily
out-of-state anglers who want
to sample the Sunshine State's
fishing opportunities.
The license-free day applies
only to recreational users, not
commercial outfits.
All bag limits, season and size
restrictions still apply, Officials
The state will also devote two
days to license-free saltwater
fishing this year. Those dates
are Saturday, June 1 and Sunday,
Sept. 1.
This Saturday's freshwa-
ter day coincides with a
productive fishing period, FWC
said in a press release. Black
bass, bluegill, certain sunfish
and other popular sport varieties
move into the shallows to spawn
this time of year, a migration that
can make them easier targets for
fishermen of all ages.


Ken Campbell and Steve Croxton, both with the Jackson County
Utility Department, put a new motor on the dam at Spring Creek
Thursday. The motor is one of two that are used to control the
dam's gate and fish barrier.

grand theft


Staff Report
Authorities say they found
ample evidence that a Green-
wood man stole a cellphone
from the vehicle of a man who
hired him to clean a car.
Michael Denord Grimsley,
29, is charged
with grand theft
in the case.

had the phone in his pocket
when investigators came call-
ing on himWednesdayto check
out the victim's suspicion that
Grimsley had taken the phone
on March 27 after being hired
to clean the victim's vehicle.
Investigators report that
Grimsley had allegedly charged
more than 300 minutes to the
phone, as well as text messages
and data, during the time he
was in possession of it. Inves-
tigators say the phone had
several pictures and personal
entries to show that Grimsley
had been using the phone. The
cost of the phone was listed at
$350. That value and the cost of
usage warranted a grand theft
charge, officials reported.

Surviving Easter 2013

T here must a law,
deep in the cosmic
base code, that if
parents dress their nine
children in Easter white
especially when New
England snow is melting
at least one will fall into
the mud.
"It was tough," said Sim-
cha Fisher, describing this
Easter's obstacle course,
"but we survived all that
and made it to Mass."
This was not an ordi-
nary Mass, of course. The
Fishers with children
ranging from 15 months
to nearly 15 years were
trying to get into the 11:15
a.m. rites on the day when
their New Hampshire
parish would be jammed
with those known, in
commentaries on modern
church life, as "Christmas
and Easter Only Catholics"
(CEOs), "Poinsettia and
Lily Catholics" or even
In a kind of Easter
miracle, the Fishers found
adequate real estate in a
pew. "The church was, of
course, packed," noted
Fisher, in a telephone
interview. "The family in
front of us was dressed to
the nines and they seemed
to be trying to break the
world record for the con-
sumption of gum" during
Fisher knows that this
narration sounds whiny.
After all, this year she ap-
proached the most impor-
tant day on the Christian
calendar even more aware
than normal of the ten-
sions between Christmas
and Easter Only worship-
pers and the faithful who
attend week after week. As
HolyWeek came to a close,
the National Catholic Reg-
ister columnist had com-
mitted herself, in print, to
being more hopeful and
welcoming this Easter.
That's nice, but what are
churchgoing Catholics
supposed to do when

faced with CEOs chat-
tering during Mass "like
they're in
a football
while turn-
ing the
tion of our
Te-rry Lord into a
Mattingly photo op,
what should
be the most joyous holy
days into an occasion of
sin for faithful Catholics,"
she wrote.
It's one thing to promise
to be more understanding,
she noted. It's something
else to struggle with the
reality of legions of almost
"I really am glad that
they're there," wrote
Fisher. "It's got to be better
than never going to Mass,
and I do believe that the
Holy Spirit could easily
use that opportunity to
send a powerful word, a
lingering image, a stray
idea into the mind or
heart of a fallen-away
Catholic, and a casual visit
that was made just out of
habit, or to please some-
one's grandma, might be
the first step to coming
back home to the faith.
And yeah, they're not be-
ing reverent. Neither am
I, by going through the
motions while grumbling
in my heart.
"But I know my limits.

suddenly turn into Mother
Teresa, especially if I show

At some point, this crush
will affect whether some
believers.- even the most
faithful are willing to
endure the tension in

Easter pews, noted Joe
Carter, senior editor at the
Acton Institute. Recent
numbers from LifeWay
Research indicated that
only 58 percent of self-
identified Protestants, 57
percent of Catholics and
45 percent of nondenomi-
national church members
said they were likely to
attend Easter services. It's
legitimate to ask why so
many believers are staying
away, he argued on his
Perhaps this trend can
be explained with the
help of a quip by baseball
legendYogi Berra, said
Carter. When asked why
he no longer frequented
a popular restaurant,
Berra said, "Nobody goes
there anymore. It's too
Fisher wrote that, before
opting dut of Easter rites,
frustrated parents could
seek less popular services
in the parish schedule,
make strategic plans to ar-
rive 45 minutes early and
have family pep talks with
their children about what
to expect. And then there
is the "Hallmark trap" in
which worshippers are
tempted to expect a pic-
ture-perfect Easter packed
with emotional goodies.
It's easy to mutter, "But
I DESERVE a flood of
peace and grace and joy
on Easter, because it's the
Resurrection, dammit!
But there's no guarantee
Easter will work out that
way," wrote Fisher. "We
need Easter because we're
crappy people who get
mad at other people, even
during Mass. ... Thank God
the graces of the Risen
Lord don't come to us only
when it's a picture-perfect

Cell phone policy
is one of those is-
sues that you must

at the beginning of this
column that there are so
many differenent policies
on this, that there is no

I think the
answer is
that each
Jerr business is
Oster- so unique
that a uni-
yoUlng form policy
just will
not work.
Rather; each firm must de-
termine its own cell phone

its staff, mission, and itA

with this
is to very clearly articulate
what However, in a medi-
cal practice, you clearly
do not want your staff to
be answering their cell
phone as they are seeing
patients(I know that this
is an extreme example).
Bottom line is that a cell
phone must be set up
around your company and
its mission.
There needs to be a very
clear policy about driving
a company vehicle and
using a cell phone whether
or not that is a personal
cell phone or a company
issued one. Distracted
driving or causing an
accident while on a cell,

be tolerated. Even hands

be allowed to be used as
this just creates distracted
One firm that Iwas
working with had a policy
of no cell phones in the
building and all staff and
had to keep their cell
phones locked up in their
cars and could check on
them during breaks and
at lunch. To me, this is an
onerous policy as there are
times when an emergency
happens.and you just
have to allow your staff to
answer a call that is com-
ing in.
One firm has a policy
that if you are expecting
an emergency call, then
you can leave your phone
on vibrate(all of their
personal cell phones must
be turned off) if you have
your manager's approval.
However, the problem
with this policy is that
my definition all emer-
gencies just cannot be
Of course, many firms
who do not allow personal
cell phones in the office,
say that any employee is
quickly accessible through
their existing telephone
system. While this is true,
in an emergency this can
be very slow if you have
to quickly call an
This is one of those
grey areas where you
want your staff to feel
respected but you do
not want them to take
advantage of the system
to respond to non-emer-
gency calls.
Overall, this is such a
tough policy to regulate
and police. However, you
just must do this as other-
wise; things can get out of
hand in a hurry.
Now go out and make
sure you have a cell phone
policy clearly mapped out
for your company.

Gulf Coast Dermatology expands in Marianna

Special to the Floridan

While the economy is
still on shaky ground and
healthcare in a state of
question, Gulf C6ast IDer-
matology, P.A. continues
to expand. The latest signs
of growth are in Marianna
and Panama City Beach
where they have con-
structed new facilities to
accommodate an increas-
ing need for dermatology,
primarily focused on di-
agnosing and treating skin
"We've reached the
point where upgrading
and enlarging our space
in these two markets was
imperative. Both Panama
City Beach and Marian'na

have been consistently
growing, but both spaces
were very tight and with a
greater awareness of and
occurrence of skin can-
cer we're serving more
patients. Because we're
invested in these com-
munities, it made perfect
sense to design and build
larger locations that will
help provide for the need,"
says Carol Whiting, Direc-
tor of Marketing for Gulf
Coast Dermatology/Aqua
Medical Spa at Gulf Coast
The new locations in
Marianna and Panama
City Beach are 10,000
square feet, with half dedi-
cated to the medical prac-
tice and 5,000 square feet

to be leased to other busi-
nesses. The bottom floors
will be equipped with
larger treatment and exam
rooms as well as larger
labs for performing Mohs
surgery. Mohs surgery is
the most effective method
of removing skin cancer,
with a 98-99% cure rate.
This procedure is highly
specialized as the surgeon
removes and examines the
cancerous cells progres-
sively, studying each layer
of tissue under the micro-
scope until the cancer is
eliminated. Mohs surgery
also preserves the most
surrounding, healthy
In addition to the medi-
cal and surgical derma-

tology space, Gulf Coast
Dermatology has also
built a dedicated area for
cosmetic dermatology

Spa at Gulf Coast Derma-
tology is their physician-
supervised medical spa
that offers a wide-range of
results-based treatments
and procedures like, cos-
metic injectables (such
as Botox and Juvederm)
clinical facials and peels,
microdermabrasion, der-
maplaning, with more
advanced treatments and

Condo Sales Price Can Be Negotiated

Dear Bruce: We have
been renting our condo
for 10 years. It is in a great
location, and it works well
for us.
We recently heard that
our landlord is putting our
condo up for sale. Based
on what others have sold
for in this area, we know
we can afford to buy it. We
haven't talked to our land-
lord, but we would like to
negotiate an offer for less
than what we think he will
ask. We have taken care of
all the repairs and main-
tenance on the condo as
if we owned it and have
saved every receipt. There
are some major things
wrong with the unit that
need fixing, and we wpuld
like to use these as a nego-
tiating tool.
We don't want to lose
our home, but we feel

Smart Money
we are being fair. Should
we offer a lower price? --
Reader, via email
Dear Reader: There is
nothing wrong with trying
to negotiate a lower price.
If you don't ask, you won't
You should sit down
with your landlord and
talk about current mar-
ket prices. List the vari-
ous problems' with the
unit that need to be cor-
rected, and tell him about
the projects you have
completed for which you
would like some type of

Try to negotiate a price
that will be a win-win for
both parties. If you offer
far less than the market
calls for, your landlord is
liable to get his back up
and say, "I don't want to
negotiate with you any
further," and when the
leasing arrangement is
over, he will ask you to
move out. But if you don't
come on too strong, I
think you'll be able to ne-
gotiate a decent price.

Man charged

with child abuse

From staff reports

Jackson County resident
Steve Hawes Jr.i 40, was
charged this week with
aggravated child abuse af-
tei an investigation into a
bruise found on a child in
his care.
Authorities say a doctor
issued an opinion that the
bruising was "more severe
than appropriate."
When questioned about
the bruises, Hawes and a
woman in the home told
authorities that the boy
had fallen while going to
the bathroom and that he

had hit his arm on a door
knob, according to the
complaint. The child was
also interviewed. Ques-
tioned about a bruise
on his arm, the boy told
authorities that Hawes
had pinned him down
for approximately 20-25
minutes "for being bad,"
and that the bruise was
caused by Hawes' thumb
pressing down hard.
School officials and other
adults were also inter-
viewed about the matter.
A- counselor expressed
"a major concern" for
the youngster and "be-

lives there is abuse in
the home," according to
the complaint. Another
adult associated with the
.children reported several
concerns to DCE saying
the child often came to
school with bruising. The
reporting adult expressed
a belief that the children
were told to lie abdut
how they received the
The complaint also states
that the Department Of
Children and Families and
law enforcement officials
believe "there are con-
cerns" about the child.

House passes
'parent trigger' bill
last-ditch effort to portray it
as a backdoor measure to let
for-profit companies take over
public schools, the Florida
House on Thursday passed a
bill to give parents a vote on
turnaround options for failing
public schools.
The "parent trigger" bill (HB
867), supported by many-- but
not all Republicans, passed
68-51. The proposed law would
give parents a say on how to
deal with a failing school, with
the actual voting done through
a petition drive.
Florida Education Association
President Andy Ford immedi-
ately criticized the vote as a gift
to charter school companies.
"It's all about creating an easy
pathway so that for-profit char-
ter operators can coerce parents
to hand over our neighborhood
public schools," Ford said in a

statement. "This doesn't em-
power parents, it doesn't

Court: Man can't be held
as sex offender
Florida Supreme Court has
ruled that the state can't hold a
Venice man in sex offender de-
tention because he had already
finished his prison sentence by
the time paperwork was filed.
The court ruled 5-2 in Larry
Phillips' case on Thursday.
It said an individual must
be in "lawful custody" when
commitment proceedings are
started. Phillips was in physical
custody but his sentence had
expired three months earlier.
Florida's "Jimmy Ryce Act" lets
the state detain sex offenders
even after they have completed
prison if courts determine they
are a danger to the community.
They cannot be released until
they've received treatment and
a judge rules they no longer are
a danger.
The law is named for a 9-
year-old boy who was raped

Bill expands prescribing
powers for optometrists
Senate has sent to Gov. Rick
Scott a long-debated bill that
would expand the drug-pre-
scribing powers of optometrists.
The bill (HB 239) would al-
low optometrists to prescribe
oral medications to treat eye
diseases. Currently, they are
limited to prescribing "topical"
medications, such as drops,
and have to refer patients to
ophthalmologists for conditions
requiring oral drugs.
State senators voted 40-0
Thursday to pass the bill, which
cleared the House earlier in the
session. If Scott signs the bill
into law, it will conclude a turf
battle pitting optometrists and
ophthalmologists that dragged
on for years.

Annie's Mailbox

Dear Annie: I've been a widow for 15
years. I moved to another state to be with
my kids and met "Jerry." We've been dat-
ing for nine months.
Jerry has been divorced for two years
and has two adult children. His ex-wife
was his childhood sweetheart and the
only woman he'd ever been with. The
problem is, I have never been to Jerry's
house. He says his niece and youngest
child live with him, and he hasn't told the
family about me.When I asked why, he
said, "Then everyone will know it's over
between my ex and me."
I think Jerry's mother sustains the hope
that he will get back together with'his
ex, and I'm pretty sure his ex would like
that, too. I gave Jerry a deadline of three


Francis Bacon wrote, "Travel, in the younger
sort, is part of an education; in the elder, a part
of experience. He that travelleth into a coun-
try before he hath some entrance into the lan-
guage, goeth to school and not to travel."
I suppose that has a parallel in bridge. He that
playeth on one suit before he hath some sort of
entrance into that hand elsewhere, goeth to de-
struction and not to success. In this deal, how
should South play in three no-trump afterWest
leads a low heart?
North's three clubs was a weak jump overcall,
showing a good six-card suit and 6 to 10 high-
card points. South bid what he hoped he could
make. West wisely allowed the unfavorable vul-
nerability to silence him.
West, deciding that South was prepared for a
spade lead, tried a sneaky heart attack.
Clearly, South needed to establish and run
dummy's club suit. However, assuming the de-
fender with the club ace had learned the game
more than an hour ago, he would know not to
take the first round of clubs, but to wait until
the second round. Then declarer realized that
he would need a dummy entry. So, instead of
taking a cheap first trick with dummy's heart
10, he overtook with his ace and played on
clubs, starting with his jack, the honor from the
shorter side first.
East won the second club and shifted to a
spade, but South took that trick with his ace
and led a heart to force a dummy entry.
SIn whatever language you speak, when you
are establishing a long suit in one hand, always
check your entrance situation.

Dear Not Yet: Either Jerry is still hung
up on his ex-wife, or he's too afraid of his
mother to date anyone else. If he were
truly ready to move forward, seeing you
publicly would not be an issue after nine
months. Your deadline makes sense, but
you rpust be ready to end the relation-
ship if Jerry doesn't come through. That
would mean he isn't likely to ever be
"ready." Sorry.

away several top players,

this isn't exactly a new

College Basketbaa

FIU now looking for Pitino replacement

Florida International coach Richard Pitino applauds his team's
effort during the college basketball game against Louisville in
Louisville, Ky. on Dec. 19,2012.


Thieves steal $340K in

jewelry from Bosh home

The Associated Press
MIAMI While Miami
Heat star Chris Bosh was
out celebrating his birth-
day at a Morocco-themed
party complete with live
camels, police said Thurs-
day that thieves made off,
with about $340,000 in
jewelry and cash from the
player's nearby home.
Miami Beach po-
lice spokesman Bobby
Hernandez said the de-
partment received a call
about 12:30 a.m. after
Bosh and his wife, Adri-
enne, returned from the
well-publicized party at a
bayside Miami nightspot.
Hernandez said the couple
noticed a jewelry drawer
in their walk-in was open
and numerous watches,
rings, purses aid cash
were missing.
Bosh said he also no-
ticed other things were not
where they typically are,
including some items on
the closet floor.
There was no sign of
forced entry at the wa-
terfront, 12,368-square-
foot home, which Bosh
purchased in 2010 for
$12.3 million. Hernandez
also said easily traceable
items such as Bosh's Heat
championship ring from

last year's NBA title were
left undisturbed.
"We think it was prob-
ably an inside job," Her-
nandez said.
Police were interview-
ing Bosh's housekeepers,
baby sitters and anyone
else, such as a contractor
or repair person, who may
have recently had access to
the. home. They were also
fanning out to check local
pawn shops for the stolen
"That's always a con-
cern," Bosh said when
asked about police specu-
lation that it was an inside
A Miami Beach police
report said there were two
baby sitters and a teen-
ager at the home while the
Boshes who have two
small children went to
the party and that no one
saw or heard anything. The
report notes that the home
is equipped with video sur-
veillance and an alarm, but
the alarm was switched off
because people were at the
Bosh estimated the 12
stolen watches are worth
about $300,000, according
to the report. In addition
to the rings and handbags,
about $20,000 in cash was
also taken.

The Associated Press
MIAMI Richard Pitino
did everything Florida In-
ternational wanted for the
last year.
That is, except stick
around a while longer.
The Panthers' search for
their next basketball coach
is already under way, with
Pitino now at Minnesota
after going 18-14 far
better than most anyone
expected- in his one sea-
son at FIU. Pitino, the son
of Louisville coach Rick
Pitino, accepted the job
offer from the Gophers on
Wednesday, and on Thurs-
day, FIU was already in
the process of finding his
"Richard delivered on
everything he promised
he would," FIU director of
sports and entertainment

4 *


Pete Garcia said Thursday.
"He delivered quicker than
I think even he himself
thought he would. The job
he did here was amazing.
It has proven to myself, to
President (Mark) Rosen-
berg, to the trustees and
the administration, that
FIU could be relevant in
basketball. And he got us
on the map."
Garcia could not have
been more effusive in his
praise for Pitino on Thurs-
day, not in any way sound-
ing upset that the coach
departed two weeks shy of
what would lave been his
1-year anniversary at the
"He did everything I
could ask of him," Garcia
Garcia began getting an
idea that better, and bet-
ter-paying, jobs might be

offered to Pitino late this
season, when it became
obvious that FIU would
be posting its first winning
record since the 1999-2000
campaign. In the two sea-
sons before Pitino arrived,
FIU went 19-40 under Bas-
ketball Hall of Fame player
Isiah Thomas.
Pitino's contract with
Minnesota has not been
finalized and released,
though whatever money
he makes there will dwarf
the $250,000 annual base
salary he agreed to when
he accepted the job at
"Minnesota has just
landed a great basket-
ball coach," Garcia said.
"There's no doubt in my
mind that what he'll do
at Minnesota is the same
thing he did here at FIU.
This guy is a complete

package as far as coach, a
leader of men. He does ev-
erything the right way. He
got these kids to go to class,
get good grades, be in-
volved in the community."
The Pitino family also
raved about the way Gar-
cia was gracious about the
early departure.
"Pete Garcia was awe-
some," said Rick Pitino,
whose Cardinals will play
in the Final Four this week-
end in Atlanta.
Finding the next FIU
coach may not be overly
The Panthers have a style
that Garcia likes now, with
Pitino's pressing defense
and up-tempo offense, but
they may be facing ma-
jor academic hurdles that
the school says were cre-.
ated during the Thomas
