Compass Lake in the Hills
Homeowners request increase in assessment
BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
The management at Compass Lake in the Hills is asking that the county authorize an increase in the special annual assessment that property owners in the subdivision pay there for extra services such as road maintenance, an assigned law enforcement
officer and fire services. This is
money in addition to their normal ad valorem taxes. The assessment money is collected by way of a Municipal Services TaxLaymon ing Unit authorized and created by the county in the 1970s.
As he unsuccessfully attempted last year, John Laymon asked the board Tuesday to authorize a $15 increase in the assessment. If it is approved, property owners in the Hills would pay $150 instead of the current $135 annual total. Commissioners turned him down last year, but took-no immediate action on the latest request when
Laymonpresentedit at the coun- support as well. ty's morning budget workshop. Laymon went on to say that In defending the proposed the money would be used to buy increase, Laymon said the sub- materials needed for the maindivision's.

Jackson County Commissioners, in the midst of budget workshops for fiscal year 2014-15, have put a hold on some of the heavy equipment purchases requested by the county road and bridge department in hopes that they can use pending storm reimbursement dollars to help pay for a few more things on the wish list.
wish list for
BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
Jackson County Road and Bridge Superintendent Al Green wanted county commissioners to buy almost $8 million worth of heavy equipment in the coming budget year, but.the board bulldozed his list and left just $600,000 in the budget, at least for now, as the county's money talks continue. They left intact a rubber tire roller, that costs an estimated $70,000, a debris-clearing grapple truck which -costs around 150,000, a $9,500 wheel balancer, a $325,000 excavator and a $46,500 low-boy trailer. Green Commissioners usually do take wide swings at the R&B wish list at budget time, but this year they have a strategy in mind that, down the road, might actuallyhelp them afford some of the additional equipment that Green wants. The board is hoping that it can repurpose some of the storm reimbursement money FEMA is giving the

r. Magic Balloons, DeWayne Reynolds, performs his unique
show of magic, science and balloon fun at the Marianna branch of the Jackson County Library on Wednesday. The show included several science examples, such as inflating a balloon using baking soda and vinegar. Reynolds included the children in the audience in his skits, giving some of the impromptu performers giant balloon hats with character names like Dr.Science. The skits were short stories based on children's books. The final skit of the performance was from the book, "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" and as the children stood in front of the stage curtain, food-shaped balloons like eggs, carrots, peas, and of course, meatballs floated over the curtain and down around them.

Reporter to TSA: DC is part of US
The Associated Press
ORLANDO - Security workers at Orlando International Airport are being shown the District of Columbia driver's license after one agent's apparent confusion over its validity. Cox Media Group television reporter- Justin Gray was heading back to hiis
Washington home Saturday when he says a Transportation Security Administration agent didn't recognize his license and asked for a passport, which Gray wasn't carrying. The reporter says that after further back-and-forth, he realized the agent was not aware what the District of Columbia was,
Gray eventually made it through security and voiced his complaints to a supervisor and then the rest of the world via Twitter. He says Washington is "a bizarre place" but a passport isn't needed. WFTV reports that all Orlando TSA agents are being shown copies of the D.C. driver's license.

Buzz Aldrin: Where were you when I walked on moon?
The Associated Press
CAPE CANAVERAL - On July 20, 1969, Buzz Aldrin was "out of town" when the world united and rejoiced in a way never seen before or since. He and Neffil Armstrong were on the moon. They missed the whole celebration 45 years ago this Sunday. So did Michael Collins, orbiting solo around the moon in the mother ship.
Now, on this Apollo 11 milestone -just five years shy of the golden anniversary - Aldrin is asking everyone to remember where they were when he and Armstrong became the first humans to step onto another heavenly body, and to share their memories online. Too young? You can also share how the moonwalkers inspired you.
Celebrities, public figures, and other astronauts and scientists are happily obliging with videos.
"What a day that was," said actor Tom Hanks, sipping from an Apollo 11 commemorative cup. He starred in the 1995 film "Apollo 13," another gripping moon story.
"Going to space is a big deal. Walking on the moon is, literally, walking on the moon," said singer-songwriter Pharrell Williams, born four years afterward.
And from London Mayor Boris Johnson, who watched the event unfold on an a little black-and.white TV at an English farmhouse: "I knew immediately it was the most exciting thing that I'd ever seen. I was only 5 at the time. And it still is just about the most exciting thing I've ever seen."
In all, 12 men explored the moon in six landings through 1972. But that first moonwalk, by Armstrong and Aldrin, is what clinched America's place as space leader supreme fol-
FILE PHOTOS BYTHEASSOCIATED PRESS
This July 20,1969 file photo provided by NASA shows astronaut Edwin E."Buzz"Aldrin Jr. posing for a photograph beside the U.S. flag deployed on the moon during the Apollo 11 mission. Aldrin and fellow astronaut Neil Armstrong were the first men to walk on the lunar surface. The trio was-launched to the moon by a Saturn V launch vehicle at 9:32 a.m. EDT, July 16,1969. They departed the moon July 21,1969.
lowing a string of crushing losses to the Soviet Union, which claimed title to first satellite, first spaceman, first spacewoman and first spacewalker.
"U.S. 1, Sputnik nothing," actor Louis Gossett Jr. said with a laugh in his video.
It's the first big anniversary of man's first moon landing.. without Armstrong, whose "one small step ... one giant leap" immortalized the moment. Armstrong, long known for his reticence, died in 2012 at age 82. As Apollo 1l's commander, Armstrong was first out the lunar module, Eagle, onto the dusty surface of Tranquility Base. Aldrin followed.
Collins, now 83, the command module pilot who
stayed behind in lunar orbit as the gatekeeper, also spent decades sidestepping the spotlight. He's making an exception for the 45th anniversary - he plansto take partin aNASA ceremony at Kennedy Space Center on Monday to add Armstrong's name to the historic Operations and Checkout Building. That leaves Aldrin, 84, as the perennial spokesman for Apollo 11. He will also be at Monday's ceremony. "I consider myself a global statesman for space," Aldrin says in aYouTube video. "So I spend most of my time traveling the country and the world to remind people what NASA and our space program have accomplished, and what is still in our future at Mars. I feel we need to remind

The Associated PressI
TALLAHASSEE - Florida's main teacher union and a teacher filed a lawsuit Wednesday aimed at blocking a significant expansion of the state's main private school voucher program. The Republican-controlled Florida Legislature passed the expansion on the final day of the session after previous efforts to push the legislation had been defeated. The lawsuit filed Wednesday in a Leon County Circuit Court does not target the existing $300 million program that served nearly 60,000 families last year. Instead the legal challenge contends that when state legislators passed the expansion they violated a requirement in the state constitutionthat bills can cover only one subject. The voucher expansion was added to an unrelated education bill because a day earlier a stand-alone measure had failed to win enough votes in the
"This was a sneaky way for the legislative leaders to enact measures that had already failed," said Florida Education Association Vice PresidentJoanne McCall. Tom Faasse, the Lee County social studies teacher whose name is on the lawsuit, said he would use the passage of the bill as an example to his American government class of someone not following "the rules" laid out in the constitution.
Republican legislative leaders and groups supporting the program blasted the FEA because the new law also expands services to disabled children through the creation of "personal learning scholarship accounts." These accounts would allow parents of children with disabilities;such as autism and Down syndrome to get services worth $10,000 a year. "This is a new low for the FEA," said Patricia Levesque, head of the Foundation for Excellence in
Education. "It is shameful that they would spend teachers' hardearned dollars to block opportunities for our most vulnerable students."
Sen. Andy Gardiner, R-Orlando and who is in line to become the next Senate president, not' only criticized the lawsuit in a statement but pledged to do even more once he assumes power later this year.
"We will empower parents and children with unique abilities as long as I am in the process," said Gardiner, who has a child with Down syndrome. "The teacher's union may have given up on these children, but I have not."
McCall defended the lawsuit by saying the union was doing what was right for "all students" in the public school system.
Florida currently allows a business to receive tax credits if it donates money to organizations that Provide private school vouchers to low-income families.
Currently the program is limited to families who earn up to 185 percent of the federal poverty level. But the bill signed into law by Gov. Rick Scott would let middleincome families receive partial vouchers starting in 2016. The law also removes a requirement that students in grades 6 through 12 had to attend a public school the prior year in order to be eligible. State data shows that more than 80 percent of the schools participating in the current program are religious.
Jon East, a spokesman for Step Up for Students, the main group handing out the vouchers, said at estimated 67,000 families were expected to receive scholarships this year, bringing the cost of the program to nearly $358 million. But he said that the organization has received roughly 120,000 applications and that it was unlikely that those who receive scholarships this year would be able to take advantage of the eligibility changes.

Governor says he'll meet scientists on climate change
The Associated Press
MIAMI - Gov. Rick Scott said Wednesday his administration would be "happy to meet" with 10 scientists from Florida universities who want to talk about climate change, a subject he has been reluctant to address.
A letter from the scientists was delivered to Scott's office Tuesday. Scott and other Republicans have been skeptical of global warming and the governor has worked with the GOPcontrolled Legislature to dismantle climatechange initiatives. When a federal report earlier this year highlighted Florida -- and Miami in particular - among the parts of the country most vulnerable to global warming and rising sea levels, Scott said: "I'm not a scientist" when asked about it.
In a statement about the letter, Scott said he was "focused on solutions we can implement to protect our land, water and families." "We have made environmental restoration atop priority-investing record amounts in the Everglades and Springs projects all across Florida, even many that were not prioritized by the previous administration," he said.
During an unrelated bill signing event in Key Biscayne Wednesday, Scott told The Associated Press that much of his own family continues to live in Florida and that he hopes to preserve it for his grandchildren.
"I want to make sure this is a place where we'll have a pristine environment that we all can enjoy," Scott said.
The letter was signed by experts in

marine systems, atmospheric sciences and other climate change-related fields at the University of Miami, Florida State University, Eckerd College and Florida International University.
"We are scientists and we would like the opportunity to explain what is at stake for our state," the scientists wrote.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has given Florida a-target of cutting its carbon dioxide emissions from power plants by 38 percent by the year 2030, as part of the Obama administration's effort to reduce emissions nationwide by nearly a third over the next 15 years. Florida will choose how to meet that goal, and the scientists wrote that they hoped to provide Scott with the latest climate science as the state prepares those plans. "Those of us signing this letter have spent hundreds of years combined studying this problem, not from any
partisan political perspective, but as scientists - seekers of evidence and explanations," the letter said. The letter's delivery was first reported by the Miami Herald. Scott, who is running for reelection, has worked to dismantle climate change initiatives put into place by his predecessor and current opponent, Republicanturned-Democrat Charlie Crist. Florida's other top Republicans, including possible 2016 presidential candidates U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio and former Gov. Jeb Bush, also have challenged climate science.
The letter comes as the Natural Resources Defense Council and the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy lead a statewide "What's your plan, Gov?" campaign seeking energy alternatives and transparency as state agencies work to meet the federal carbon pollution standards.
Man charged with
MIAMI -A South Florida man is facing multiple felony counts after authorities say he threatened to shoot Miami-Dade county commissioners during a meeting. Speaking at a podium in front of the commissioners Tuesday evening, 54-year-old Jose Antonio Fernandez accused the county of confiscating his land. Authorities say he then said that if the county sold his home, he would have the right to shoot every member of'the commission.
Miamni-Dade police arrested Fernandez outside the commission chambers and charged him with 13 counts of threatening to harm a public servant. That's one count for each of the 12 commissioners, plus the mayor.
Fernandez was being held on $97,500 bail. His public defender declined comment. The Miami Herald reports that the home Fernaridez gave as his address owes the county $316,000 and is scheduled to be auctioned this month.

Lakeland pays $25,000 for bra shaking search
LAKELAND - The city of Lakeland has paid a $25,000 settlement to a woman ordered to shake out her bra during a traffic stop last year.
A public records request by The Ledger shows a check dated July 7 to 29-year-old Zoe Brugger. SAuthorities say Brugger was pulled over by Lakeland police officer Dustin Fetz in May 2013 for a broken headlight. Silent video taken from the patrol car shows her being forced to shake out her bra multiple times in a search for drugs. The officer also searched her car over her objections. No drugs were found.
Fetz has not been reprimanded for the search itself, but he served a one-day suspension for not having his microphone on. City officials say they're still waiting for an executed release, which will free them from a future lawsuit.

Dad's heartbreaking Internet plea spurs strangers
The Associated Press
TOLEDO, Ohio - Just days after his infant daughter's death, Nathen Steffel asked strangers on the Internet for only one thing: He and his wife wanted a photo of their daughter without the breathing tubes and tape that masked her little face. The response has been overwhelming. Hundreds of photos, sketches and paintings have poured into the family's northwestern Ohio home and their inbox. "I'm getting messages in languages from all over the world," Steffel said Wednesday. "It's more than I can count."
His daughter, Sophia, died last Thursday at a Cincinnati hospital from

complications of a tumor in her liver, six weeks after she was born in Columbus. She was awaiting a transplant when she died. Her father posted a message on Reddit asking if anyone could use their
photo of Sophia in the hospital and remove the tubes attached to her face and wrist. "Since she was in the hospital her whole life we never were able to get a photo without all her tubes," he wrote.
"It started because I just wanted one picture," said Steffel, who lives in the village of Kalida with his wife, Emily, and their two sons. He initially was not sure about posting the request online because he was
worried someone might respond rudely. "I guess.the best has outweighed the negative," he said.
So far, they have received thousands of messages expressing support and hundreds of photos. Someone else is sending a woven blanket with Sophia's picture. David Valdez, who has been painting portraits for several years, made a digital painting of Sophia within a few.hours of seeing her father's message. "I was having a bad day when I saw this guy asking for a photo. I just started painting," said Valdez, a college student from New Braunfels, Texas. "It brought me some sort of sense of relief to help someone out."
Jillian Johnston, an illustrator from Mountain View, California, said she felt pulled to create her own image of Sophia. She posted it online and then woke up the next morning to a flood of compliments and several requests from other parents who lost their children in similar situations.
"I have at least a dozen more babies to paint," she said. "There are so many beautiful babies. It's heartbreaking." Steffel said his family now has more memories of their daughter than they could have imagined, he said.
"It's kept me and my wife occupied reading all these messages," Steffel said. "Keeping, our minds off things."

Psychiatric test ordered for Newtown calls suspect
The Associated Press
NEW HAVEN, Conn.
- A federal judge in Connecticut ordered a psychiatric assessment Wednesday of a Venezuelan man charged with making threatening phone calls to Newtown residents in the days following the 'December 2012 shootings at the Sandy Hook Elementary School.
Wilfrido Cardenas Hoffman, who faces up to five years in prison if convicted, was arrested last month at Miami International Airport while traveling to Mexico from Venezuela.
At his initial appearance Wednesday in fed-
eral court in New Haven, defense lawyers told the
judge that Cardenas has received psychiatric care at home in Venezuela. The psychiatric evalua-
tion was ordered after defense attorneys sought an evaluation for appropriate treatment.
An attorney for Cardenas declined to comment after the hearing.
On Dec. 14, 2012, Adam Lanza fatally shot his mother and gunned down 20 children and six educators at the school before killing himself. Prosecutors 4ay Carde-
nas made the threatening calls two days after the December 2012 shootings. Authorities say that in a, few calls, he claimed to be the shooter and threatened to kill the person he called.
"This is Adam Lanza. I'm gonna (expletive) kill you. You're dead. You're dead. You hear me? You're dead," the caller said, according to authorities. In another phone call, Cardenas is accused of saying: "This is Adam Lanza. I'm gonna kill you. You're dead. With my machine gun. You're dead (expletive)." Cardenas was ordered to remain held ahead of a probable cause hearing, which was scheduled for Sept. 16.
VA a no show; store workers fix vet's wheelchair
NEWYORK-What the Veterans Administration failed to do for double amputee Michael Sulsona in two years, some NewYork hardware store workers delivered in an hour: They fixed his worn-out wheelchair.
The 62-year-old Vietnam veteran says he petitioned the VA for a new chair two years ago, but received no reply
At a Lowe's home improvement store on Staten Island last week, a bolt on his wheelchair snapped. Lowe's employees stayed late after their 10 p.m. closing time to do the repair, for free.
After Sulsona wrote a letter to a local newspaper to thank store employees, the VA heard about him and sent him a brand-new wheelchair Tuesday.
VA spokesman Jirn Blue acknowledged Wednesday that too many vets wait too long to receive health care benefits.
Criminal history on Pennsylvania Capitol portraits
HARRISBURG, Pa. - The portraits of three former Pennsylvania House speakers and one former top state senator hanging in the Capitol's marble corridors each have new information to tell visitors: their criminal histories. Plaques that add those details were hung Thesday. Aides to the current House speaker and presiding senator say the new plaques are intended to keep the portrait tradition intact while addressing criticism that the portraits of convicted former lawmakers shouldn't be displayed near the likes of Ben Franklin. For instance, ex-House Speaker John Perzel's plaque now reads, "Mr. Perzel was defeated for re-election to the House in November 2010, prior to pleading guilty to a variety of corruption related charges, and was sentenced to prison on March 30, 2012."
The other three men also went to prison on corruption-related charges.
California hiker with broken leg ate bugs to live
FRESNO, Calif. -A hiker who was stranded for six days with a broken leg in California's Sierra Nevada says he survived by eating crickets and moths and melting ice for water. Gregg Hein said Wednesday while recovering at a Fresno hospital that he was a couple days into a solo hike when a large rock crushed his right leg above the ankle. The 33year-old Clovis man's first thought was treating his dangling leg and protruding bone to boost his chances of making it out alive. Hein says he used hiking gear to secure his leg and then scooted to a flat clearing with a good vantage point to wait for rescuers. A helicopter crew eventually spotted him. Hein says his high-risk days of hiking alone are behind him.

Dixie Youth ARA State Tburnament
Graceville AAA eliminated in Desoto
BY DUSTIN KENT
The Graceville All-Stars' playoff run came to an end Wednesday afternoon in Desoto courtesy of a 14-5 loss to East Lakeland in the Dixie Youth AAA State Tournament.
The game scheduled to take place Tuesday night, but it was rained out and postponed a day, though the rain didn't stop Wednesday, with three separate delays causing the noon start to finish nearly seven hours later. Graceville coach Rod Adams said it was tough for his team to find much of a rhythm with the constant stop and starts.
"It was very hard. We had to come off the field three or four times, and that was tough," he said. "We just made too many errors and too many mistakes to have a chance. They hit the ball good and we just had too many errors." Christian Lane started out on the mound for Graceville and was
relieved by Michael Duffell in the third, with Thomas Duffell coming on in the fourth and starting the fifth before Neal Adams came out of the bullpen and finished the game out.
The biggest highlight of the night for Graceville came from Zepheniah Bronson, who hit a two-run home run in the second inning. It wasn't enough to keep Graceville alive, however, with an opening loss to Franklin County preceding the All-Stars' lone win in the tournament, 6-3 over Holmes County on Monday.
The Graceville coach said he believed going into the tourney that the team was capable of doing more. "I'd be lying if I said I wasn't disappointed. I think we could've played better and could've won a couple of more games," he said. "But this is a young team. We've only got three 10year-olds and nine 9-year-olds, so they got some good experience."

NEA Crossword Puzzle
Dear Annie: My beloved mother-in-law passed away two years ago. We had a church funeral and a celebration of her life.
My father-in-law had the body cremnated. He intends to have the ashes buried in the family plot in NewYork, 1,200 miles away, although he hasn't done so yet. On more than one occasion, he has informed my husband that he wants him to go to NewYork for aftother memorial ceremony.
I have never heard of having two ceremonies so far apart, and my husband is not looking forward to it. We said our goodbyes at her funeral. Planning another one feels like a dark hanging cloud.
My father-in-law recently met a lady and has decided he should have my mother-in-law's ashes laid to rest within
the next few months. He expects us to travel to the second ceremony. I feel that it is my father-in-law's responsibility to take care of this, and frankly, it should have been done a long time ago. Am I wrong? Dowe really have to drag out the burial like this?
- MY HEART IS BREAICING Dear Heart: Some families might find it touching to have another (small) memorial two years later, when you've all had the opportunity to recover from the initial sorrow anid can celebrate your mother-in-law's life with more joy. But since you don't feel that way, you do not need to go to so much trouble. However, this is your husband's mother, and he gets to make that decision for himself. Please do not try to influence him. If he would rather go with his . father, we hope you will be supportive.
We have been looking at 'declarer's
plan in no-trump when he has only one stopper in the suit led at trick one. But how does his strategy change when he has two stoppers in that suit?
It depends upon the number of op.posing high cards declarer has to, drive out before running for home. If he will lose the lead only once, he should take the first trick, give the opponents the trick they are due, and claim. However, if he has two losers to drive out, usually it is right to duck (lose) trick one.
In this example deal, West leads the spade four against three no-trump and East puts up his jack. How should South plan the play?
South starts with only five top tricks: two spades and three diamonds. He can get three winners from clubs, so also needs a heart trick. He has to concede tricks to both rounded-suit aces. The rule recommends ducking the first trick.
Let's assume East returns his second spade. South wins and plays on clubs. East takes his ace, but doesn't have another spade to lead (and if he did, the suit would be 4-3). Note that if South takes the first trick and leads a club, East wins and returns his second spade, establishing West's suit while West still has an entry in
the heart ace. Or, if South plays a high heart at trick two, West wins with his ace and East drops the jack, the top of his sequence when he cannot win the trick. ThenWest should lead his second heart, which would defeat the contract. Finally, yes, if East, when given the first trick, shifts to his heart jack at trick two, South has to guess to play low, which is not clear-cut.

Jones breaks through ahead of Nationwide debut at Chicagoland
The Associated Press
DES MOINES, Iowa- Erik Jones has discovered that driving the No.51 truck isn't nearly as easy as Kyle Busch makes it look. Last weekend, Jones finally pushed through the adversity that had dogged him all season with a run that showed why Busch and others are so high on his potential.
Jones led 131 of the 200 laps in a NASCAR trucks race at Iowa
Erik Jones led 131 of the 200 laps on his way to victory in last week's truck race, at Iowa Speedway.
Speedway on Friday and cruised to his first victory of 2014 and the sixth for Busch's No.51 team. The win came at a perfect time
for the 18-year-old. He makes his Nationwide debut this weekend at Chicagoland Speedway. "It was definitely a great win in
a lot of ways for everybody over here at (Kyle Busch Motorsports and for myself just to get some momentum going. Hopefully we can carry it into this next weekend and keep going on the Nationwide side of things, Jones said.
Jones emerged as something of a stock car wunderkind in 2012, ' becoming the first 15-year-old to run an ARCA race. His early success caught the eye of Busch, who gave him five starts in the
No: 51 lastyear, and Jones rewarded Busch's faith in him with a win in Phoenix, making him the youngest winner in series history. Saturday's race in Chicago will be the first of three Nationwide events in Matt Kenseth's No. 20 car this season for Jones. Jones isn't expected to do much more than gain experience in NASCAR's second-tier circuit this season. But a promising showing could lead to more Nationwide opportunities in 2015.
