According to the Florida Highway Patrol, a 2007 Freight Tractor-Trailer loaded with topsoil and mulch was headed westbound on Interstate 10, traveling partially on the north shoulder. The driver, Thomas Lee Cook Jr., 48, of Old Town, Fla., then over corrected, causing the vehicle to travel partially into the median.

SPECIAL TO THE NEWS From left: Angela Harrs parents, Robin Harr and Steve Harr, pose with her after the Academic Scholarship Con rmation Ceremony in her honor. TALLAHASSEE (AP) The future of the Florida Supreme Court is sparking a legislative battle over whether the states next governor or the governor after that will have a say in who will be on the court. Senate Republicans are backing a proposed constitutional amendment that would make it clear that whoever wins the election this fall will get to pick three justices to replace those who are scheduled to retire in the next few years. Sen. Tom Lee, R-Brandon and sponsor of the amendment, insists he is trying to x a looming constitutional crisis, but his efforts are drawing suspicions from Democrats. Three of the seven justices now on the high court will be required to retire the same day in 2019 when a new governor is sworn in. They will be required to step down because they will have reached the mandatory retirement age of 70 during their current six-year terms. Those three justices Barbara Pariente, Fred Lewis and Peggy Quince are part of an ongoing majority that has ruled against Scott and the GOP-controlled Legislature in a line of high-pro le cases including a recent decision to let a medical marijuana amendment go on this years ballot. Scott is seeking a second term this year but if he is re-elected, term limits would force him to leave of ce after eight years. Lee maintains there could be a legal battle between the outgoing and incoming governor over who actually gets to pick the successor. In 1996, Lawton Chiles and Jeb Bush avoided a similar dispute when they agreed to make a joint appointment to the Supreme Court. In the s, then-Gov. Charley Johns was allowed to appoint a judge just hours before he left of ce. The proposed amendment would allow the outgoing governor to seek nominations and make appointments to ll a future vacancy on the court. The stakes are suf ciently high if we dont clarify it now, Lee said. I dont want this to be something I just whistle past the graveyard on. But the move by Senate Republicans is being questioned by Democrats who wonder why legislators need to deal with the issue this year. Sen. Jeff Clemens, D-Lake Worth, questioned why the appointments couldnt be left to whoever is elected governor in 2018. If we are going to make this decision, one way or the other, why do you believe the best decision is to hand over the keys to the lame duck governor in this particular case as opposed to someone who had just been elected? Clemens asked. Lee disputed the idea of a lame duck governor and pointed out that the law grants the governor full power to the last day in of ce. The Senate on Wednesday gave tentative approval to the amendment (SJR 1188) and could vote it on as soon as next week. It would require a yes vote from threefths of both the House and Senate to make it to the 2014 ballot. There is no House companion to Lees bill at this time, but House Speaker Will Weatherford isnt ruling out considering the proposal. Weatherford called Lees proposal compelling and said the House would review it once the Senate passes it. The amendment then would need to be approved by 60 percent of voters to take effect.

Guinea Pigs are friendly and playful animals, and they can make for a wonderful addition to your family. However, there are always things to consider before welcoming any new pet into your home, and guinea pigs are no different. In honor of March being Adopt-a-RescuedGuinea PigMonth, here is some information on these uffy friends to help you decide if they are the right pet for you. As with any pet, it is important that you have enough time to incorporate pet ownership into your everyday schedule. The responsibility of caring for a guinea pig should not be taken any less seriously than that of a dog, cat, or any other pet. Guinea pigs need to be properly groomed and have their cages thoroughly cleaned on a regular basis, and they require daily interaction outside of their cage. All of these responsibilities are necessities and essential for a guinea pigs well-being. Guinea pigs are generally friendly and curious animals and can make great pets, said Dr. Caitlin Burrell, a zoological medicine intern at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. It is important, however, that parents teach their children how to handle guinea pigs correctly, how to clean their cage and change their food, and how to tell if they are feeling ill. If you are bringing a guinea pig into your home as a family pet, make sure that your children are ready to take on the responsibility. Figuring pet ownership into a busy after school and weekend schedule can often be difcult for children to juggle. Adult supervision may also be required for younger children. Once you have decided you are ready to become a guinea pig parent, your next task will be choosing a breed that best suits your family. There are four types of guinea pigs commonly seen as pets: the Shorthair or English, the Abyssinian, the Silky, and the Peruvian, said Burrell. They can be found at pet stores but many shelters have small mammals, such as guinea pigs, that would love to be adopted! Most animal shelters now accept small animals that are in need of loving homes, and you could save a well deserving guinea pigs life while nding the perfect addition to your family. Guinea pigs can be housed in a variety of cages. Wire cages can be used but it is important to provide an area of solid ooring to prevent foot lesions, said Burrell. Cages can be lled with bedding materials like shredded paper or aspen shavings, but cedar and pine shavings should be avoided. Bedding material also needs to be changed regularly so that toxic substances dont accumulate. Another factor to consider when creating housing for your new pet is the location of the cage. Make sure it is safe from any other pets in your home that may view them as prey, and put somewhere that social interaction and out-of-cage play time may be supervised if you have small children. They should also be kept in a temperature and humidity controlled area and should have places within the cage that they can hide, said Burrell. As for food and diet, guinea pigs are herbivores that require a proper balance of fresh pellets, hay and fresh vegetables on a daily basis. They need lots of high quality hay to promote dental health, keep their gastrointestinal tract functioning normally, and to maintain a healthy weight. They can also be offered small amounts of guinea pig pellets and fresh veggies, but the main part of their diet should be hay, said Burrell. Additionally, guinea pigs need Vitamin C in their diet because they cannot synthesize it themselves. There are diets that have been supplemented with Vitamin C, but this can degrade rapidly as the food sits on the shelf. Burrell suggests that certain vegetables, such as dark leafy greens, peppers, or parsley can be a good source of Vitamin C as well. Rescuing a pet guinea pig from your local animal shelter could bring tremendous amounts of joy and life into your home. With the proper care and adequate attention, these small pets can earn a large spot in your heart.
