Sneads man arrested for drugs, domest
BY ANGIE COOK
A Sneads man is facing multiple charges after his estranged wife accuses him of domestic battery and police find him with drugs, according to the Sneads Police Department. Court documents indicate that on Thursday, June 19, a Sneads woman reported to police that her estranged husband, 39-yearold Ted Jason Hinson, had approached her as she was riding in a truck with another man. She said Hinson stopped them, pulled her out of the truck as
she opened the passenger's side door, punched her in the forehead, dragged her into his truck and drove away, while
When the two
arrived at their home, the woman Hinson told police that
Hinson dragged her from the vehicle, striking her again and pulling her into the house. She said that she tried to escape, but he chased her, hit her and tried to keep her there. The police reports.notes a large contusion on the woman's fore-
head, with bruises and swelling on other parts of her body, a cut over her eye and what appeared to be drag marks on her clothing.
The SPD officer contact police in Chattahoochee for assistance locating Hinson at his Jackson Avenue home, where he and his houseguest were detained. The homeis located near the Sneads High School football field.
During contact with Hinson; the officer reports that the man said he saw his wife with the other man and "just lost it." At this point in the report, the
officer was asked by his fellow officer to come into the kitchen, where several items were found that law enforcement believes were used in the manufacture and consumption of controlled substances.
The Sneads police officer asked Hinson if he had been smoking and Hinson replied by asking if the officer was "asking as an officer or just a friend," the report said. When the officer said "as an officer," Hinson replied, "no, then I wasn't smoking." During the investigation, officers discovered a chalky white substance on a dinner plate
and in a small, white baggie on the stove. The substance later field-tested positive for methamphetamine,
Hinson, who has past convictions for possession and manufacturing methamphetamine, was arrested and booked at the Sneads Police Department. He was charged with felony domestic battery, false imprisonment, kidnapping, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of methamphetamines within 1,000 feet of a school, possession of methamphetamines and possession of listed chemicals.

Orlando supports overturning gay
ORLANDO - Orlando's city council has voted to support overturning Florida's ban on samne-sex marriage.
City council members approved Mayor Buddy Dyer's proposal to file a friend of the court brief in a lawsuit set for a hearing early next month in Miami.
The lawsuit is challenging the state's ban on same-sex marriage, claiming it violates the U.S. Constitution. Orlando is joining with the city of Miami Beach in filing the friend of the court brief.
Orlando has a domestic partnership registry, and the same-sex partners of city workers are eligible for health insurance from the city.
customers may see drop in rates
TALLAHASSEE - Florid-a1aI tf5 er ty
insurer.may be dropping its rates next year.
Insurance is considering rate proposals for 2015 that would lower rates by about 3.2 percent for most homeowners. The state-created insurer says the proposal would apply to nearly 70 percent of those with homeowner policies.
The Citizens board will vote Wednesday on the proposal. State regulators must approve the plan as well.
Citizens, which has more than 928,000 policyholders, has raised its rates for four straight years.
But company officials say several factors have diminished the need for rate hikes next year. Citizens has built up a surplus because the state has not been hit with a hurricane since 2005.
including those who live
near the coast, will still pay more in thecoming year.
State pays nearly $250,000 to settle firing case
MONTICELLO - The state of Florida has agreed to pay nearly S$250,000 to settle a lawsuit filed by a former state employee who said she was fired for raising questions about the way the state treated people who received unemployment compensation payments.'.
State officials have labeled the lawsuit by Diane Parcell "meritless." But a Leon County jury this spring sided with Parcell and concluded the state fired her in retaliation for her actions. The state, without admitting wrongdoing, recently agreed to settle the case by paying more than $53,000 to Parcell for back pay and more than $195,000 for attorney fees.
"At great cost to me and my family I had to pursue this through the. courts to get the justice I felt I deserved," said the 65-year-old Parcell, who had been a longtime state employee.

Dear Annie: I am the thrilled stepgrandmother of a wonderful grandson, age 3. I've had the privilege of taking care of him twice aweek since he was born. I decided to post his pictures on Facebook because his extended family lives all over the country and appreciates the updates on his outings and activities. I also enjoy having a computerized photo book not only for myself, but to share with my housebound mother. The problem is, one family member seems to post only negative remarks about him. Her comments have included criticisms of his baby blanket, his potty training and the length of his hair. She never compliments the boy or makes any positive comments at all. Today, she annoyed me so much that I deleted her comments from my page. I know that was petty and probably rude.
Is there any kind of etiquette regarding Facebook posts? What about polite responses to unsolicited negative opinions about one's grandson?
Dear Wondering: We have to wonder what would prompt anyone to make disparaging remarks about a 3-year-old on Facebook. (The most obvious reason is jealousy.) You can "reassign" this relative so that she no longer sees posted pictures of your grandson unless you specifically include her. You also can block her comments. Both solutions are acceptable. However, if you wish to address this with her, please do so with a personal phone call, asking whether there is a problem that can be fixed. It is the shared, public aspect of what should be a personal dispute that makes it especially rude.
Agatha Christie said, "It is ridiculous to set a detective story in NewYork City. NewYork City is itself a detective story." Little did she know what would happen After she was gone. But working out the ight play or defense is often like a detective story. There d;nhumerous clues that should be used to find the solution. In this deal, South is in four hearts. Westleads the diamond 10: four, six, ace. How should East plan the defense? South opens with a textbook weak twobid at unfavorable vulnerability: a good six-card suit and 6-10 high-card points. North knows game might have no play, but the vulnerable game bonus is very tempting.
East should ask.himself which honors are held by South. He has already produced the diamond ace and the bidding strongly suggests that he also has the heart king and queen. So he cannot have the club king. As a consequence, East can hope for two club tricks, the heart ace and either a diamond trick or a club ruff. South immediately takes two of dummy's top spades to discard his diamond loser. Then he calls for the heart jack, feigning a finesse for the queen. But East should not fall for it. He should grab the trick with his ace and shift to his club four. West wins with his king and returns the club three. East takes that trick and
gives his partner a club ruff. When defending, keep your eye on the target: the number of tricks your side needs to defeat the contract.

Hubbs named new Pirates head coach
BY DUSTIN KENT
Sneads High School has a new head boys basketball coach and it didn't have to look far to find him.
Rob Hubbs, son ofrecently dismissed
Hubbs, has been named his .father's
successor , as leader of the Pirates program after serving as an assistant with last year's dis-trictchampionship team.
The 31-year-old Hubbs has been coaching the team through the summer season and SHS principal Faye Parker made it official on Monday.
"I'm very excited about it. I think he's going to do a great job for us," Parker said. "He's.young but very knowledgeable. I thinkhe's going to be a good, positive: force for out ball team. Parker said that she interviewed a handful of other coaches about the position but felt like hi-ing Hubbs would make for

The loss of versatile guard-forward Darius Williams is significant, but the Pirates appear on paper to have a team with the size and experience to repeat as district champions. "I'm really happy with what we've got coming back," Hubbs said. "We've got a good group of. guys who are .very -talented and more experienced ,now I thought we were a relatively young team last year.

Graceville won its opener over North Hall (Ga.) by five points before falling to Arnold in the second and beating Brewbaker Tech (Ala.) in the final game of the day.
The matchupwithArnold was the second in as many weeks after the Tigers won last week in Poplar Springs, with the Marlins raising their level in the rematch.,
"We didn't play that well and they played very well., Credit to them for playing alittle better than they did last week," Graceville coach Matt Anderson said. "'We didn't play real well, they made a few shots, and we missed a few. It was a close, competitive game throughout. They're a talented team." , :The Tigers, had little trouble in the final game against Brewbaker Tech, jumping out to a 10-0 start before extending the lead to 20 and cruising to victory.

The Fort Walton Beach Holiday Inn Resort is built on what the U.S. military knows as Eglin Air Force Range Test Site A5. In exchange for allowingthe Innisfree Hotel company to build the resort, the military constructed a radar intake site under a huge dome on the roof of the hotel painted like a beach ball, seen at upper right.
Resort hotel also military test site
The Associated Press
FORT WALTON BEACH
- To the tourists who frolic in the crystal-blue surf of this picturesque, white-sand beach, the Fort Walton Beach Holiday Inn Resort looks like, well, a Holiday Inn with a large beach ball statue on top. But to military officials, it is known as EglinAir Force' Range Test Site A5. The combination resort hotel and military test site opened in late May in an unusual partnership between the military and private business in a time of tighter military budgets. In exchange for allowing the Innisfree Hotel company to build the 152-room resort on Air Force land, the military was able to construct a rooftop station that receives radar signals and a secure conference room for classified meetings. The dome hiding the military equipment is painted red, white, blue and yellow like a beach
While the Air Force has done other project with private companies before, this is the first time it has ever merged a base with a hotel, said Mike Spaits, the base spokesman. The dome was added to the radar installation to make it "less military and more visitor-friendly," said Wesley Mason, a contractor who helped develop the project.
Outside, tourists with drinks in hand floated through the landscaped, beach-front pool featuring a rocky waterfall fountain. Inside, families browsed the beach-themed gift shop and dined at a restaurant overlooking the pool.
The military presence is unobtrusive and limited to a few people, often contract employees without uniforms, who work on the roof.
Lamon Moody, a hotel guest from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, relaxed on the
beach with his family on a recent afternoon., Moody said he had no idea the beach ball covered military equipment. "I think that's pretty cool. I'm in favor of anything that helps out the mili-, tary," he said. Another vacationer, Jeff Harwell of FortWorth, Texas, said he and his family had speculated about the giant beach ball. "We talked about it when we were first noticed it," he said. "We thought maybe those things sticking out of it were lightning rods." The hotel was a win for both sides. It allowed the military to make use of small section of beachfront it owns on Okaloosa Island that is cut off by commercial developments from the rest of the Eglin's more than 17-mile expanse of beach, Spaits said. The military couldn't make good use of the land for beach training exercises or test missions without building a tower or other
structure to place equipment above the surrounding hotels, restaurants and shopping centers. Innisfree is paying the military about $190,000 a year in rent, the Air Force said. It allowed the hotel company to build on a prime beachfront site surrounded by popular attractions such as the Gulfarium marine park and the nearby convention center, said Ivana Coteat, the hotel's sales director. "This is a perfect location. You can see us right from the bridge on Highway 98. You cannot miss us," she said.
People from the areawho know about the arrangement occasionally ask for a tour of the roof, but it is off-limits, Coteat said. Chris Nixon, who oversees testing at the range, said Test Site A5 is a coveted posting for workers who monitor testing and equipment because of its view overlooking the pool and the beach.
Chipley woman seriously injured in motorcycle accident
A Chipley woman was seriously injured Saturday morning in a Bay County motorcycle accident, according to the Florida Highway . Patrol.
The incident occurred around 8:16 a.m. on June 21, at State Road 77 and Lucy Lane in Panama City.
FHP reports that 38year-old Jessica Collene Briand of Chipley was driving a 2006 Yamaha motorcycle, traveling south on S.R. 77. At the same time,. another, vehicle of unknown make and model and operated by an unknown driver, was also southbound on S.R. 77.
As the two vehicles approached the intersection at Lucy Lane, the other vehicle merged into
the inside lane when the motorcycle was occupying the lane immediately next to it.
Briand took evasive action by steering her motorcycle onto the grass median, away from the approaching vehicle. While on the grass median, the motorcycle became unstable and fell, throwing Briand from it.
The other vehicle continued traveling south, and its driver is unknown.
The motorcycle came to rest on its left side in the median, facing south.
FHP estimated the damage to the motorcycle at $1,000. Charges are pending further investigation. Briand sustained serious injuries and was taken to Bay Medical for treatment.

Klinsmann says US wants win
The Associated Press
SAO PAULO - Instead of taking a breather, the U.S. created a World Cup math puzzle for its fans back in America.
Just 30 seconds from clinching advancement with a game to spare, the U.S. conceded a stoppage-time goal that left it with a 2-2 draw against Portugal on Sunday. With four points, the Americans may need at least a tie from their Group G finale against three-time champion Germany to advance to the knockout stage.
"Now we have no choice but to regroup, get ourselves ready for another big game on Thursday," midfielder Michael Bradley said.
Germanyleads the group with four points after routing Portugal 4-0 and tying Ghana 2-2. The U.S., which opened with a 2-1 victory over Ghana, also has four points and trails on goal difference. Ghana and ortugal have one point each.
The U.S. would advance to the knockout stage of consecutiveWorld Cups for the first time with a win or a tie against the Germans, or a draw between Ghana and Portugal in a match played simultaneously. If there's a winner in the other game, the Americans also could advance with four points on a tiebreaker: goal difference, followed by total goals, head-tohead points, head-to-head goal difference and headto-head goals. If a tie still isn't resolved, there would

be a drawing of lots. "Had we been down 2-1 and we came back, we'd be flying high right now," goalkeeper Tim Howard said. "It's the Group of Death. Most people counted us out. So, it's no problem. We're going to the last game with a chance." The U.S. arrived back at its base hotel in Sao Paulo at about 5 a.m. on Monday afterafour-hourflightfrom the match in the steamy Amazon rainforest capital of Manaus. The starters were given the day off, and the reserves trained in the late afternoon at Sao Paulo Futebol Clube. After Tuesday's training session, the team makes
the three-hour-plus flight to the northeast beach city of Recife. While the Americans have just three days off between matches, Germany has four.
"There's a lot of things you can't control. That's a quirk of th6 schedule," U.S. Soccer Federation President Sunil Gulati said. "It's a quirk of the schedule that we've got more travel than anybody else in the first round, but we had less than everyone else in the first round in South Africa. So those things balance out."
The Group Gwinner likely will play Algeria, Russia or South Korea, whichever finishes second in Group
H. The second-place team in Group G probably will face Group H leader Belgium, which is 2-0. U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann did not talk to reporters Monday but spoke with the USSF in an interview for its website. "We want to beat Germany. We want to be first in our group, so we're. not thinking about a tie," he said.
Klinsmann starred for West Germany's team that won the 1990 World Cup and coached Germany to third place in 2006. Joachim Loew, Germany's current coach, was Klinsmann's assistant eight years ago.

Contrasting the excitement of becoming a head coach for the first time in his career is the fact that the opportunity was created by the dismissal of his father.
However, Hubbs, said believed staying at Sneads and coaching the 'Pirates was best for himself and the Pirate players. '"At first I had kind of mixed feelings about it, but I felt like with the amount of work that we put in last year, ifwe left it might have all been for nothing with them having to start over with someone new," he said. "I got close with these kids, especially when you go through what we did last year. That creates kind of a special bond.

mostly happy with his team's effort on the day despite the loss to Arnold.
"We played pretty well overall," he said. "I was a little disappointed with the Arnold game because I didn't feel like we played as hard as we've been playing this summer. Getting up early in the morning for the first time in a while probably took a toll. The guys didn't do a great job of handling it, but we've got to do it in the morning again so we've got to be better."

"Gainesville was just big and long everywhere. It was sort of a defensive struggle. They just got a couple more easy ones than we did on the offensive boards." Despite the losses, Welch said he was pleased with the way his players competed against the bigger competition.
"Going in and watching the other teanis warm up,
especially Gainesville and, Foley, I had my doubts if we could even compete," he said. "You never want to have moral victories, but at the same time you're competing against much better schools and much bigger players and we were hanging in there. The biggest thing is learning how to battle and play together through adversity. It was a fairly successful day." Malone will have a tough slate today in Panama City with games against East Hall (Ga.) and Rutherford with a matchup with Cottondale sandwiched in between.
