Milton resident and 'D-
Day veteran Frank Swanner
passed Thursday after a long
battle with cancer at the age
of 88.
Swanner, who was sworn
into the U.S. Army on Dec. 23,
1943 at the age of 21, was born
'in Tanner, Ala., and has lived
in Milton since 1959 when he
was transferred to the Chem-
stand/Monsanto plant in Pen-
But quietly Swanner was a
member of "America's Great-
est Generation."
He would talk about it if you
asked him or you would could
tell when he donned his old
uniform for occasions such as
. Memorial Day, Veteran's Day,
and such special events.
In June 1944 Swanner and
his fellow soldiers landed
on Omaha Beach and was a
member of a recent trip to the
World War II Veterans Memo-
rial in Washington,,D.C.; on
the Honor Flight made pos-
sible by several organizations
at Milton High School.
During his last interview
with the Santa Rosa Press
Gazette, Swanner recalled
the, images of that day and
"swimming with his little boat
into the beach."
For his service Swanner
was presented with a .cer-
tificate from the French gov-
ernment and also received a
medal for being a part of the
invasion to liberate France.
"I feel like I'm accepting
this medal in place of the boys
who got killed, which didn't
make it," said the grandfa-
ther of four, who was drafted
arid'served with the Combat
Engineers. "I do feel like all-
those boys who didn't make
it ought to get this medal. I
want to thank my family for
standing by me and helping
get this medal. My daughters,
Judy Price and Rebecca Ral-
ey, went to work on it and'did
what others could not do."
When he relayed his story
to students at King Middle in
2006 he admitted being one of
two out of 60 who weren't in-
jured or killed.,

"I feel like I'm
accepting this
medal in place
of the boys who
got killed, which
didn't make it."

Frank Swanner

"We had to fight our way
through to the command post.
We built bridges, filled cra-
ters, everything an engineer
wbuld do," he explains.
"The whole event was a
close call," he says. "The
boats were small and filled
with tools.
"We watched the beaches
with field glasses.. I looked
and didn't see anything. No
movement at all-nothing,
was happening. I thought,
'Piece of cake...they don't
know we're coming.' As we
came closer, they started
shelling us. Then I thought,
'They know we're coming.'
"I'm one of the lucky ones
who went in on D-Day and
survived.'They were bombing
us steady," says Swanner.
"One man behind me
couldn't swim real good. He
was shot or something. I
helped him get to shore," he
Swanner states he was one

Printed on

of two who weren't injured or
killed-out of about 60.
With a tear in his eye, he
tells a story of taking a pistol
off a dead buddy. Previously,
two men died that morning
and Swanner and another
man were' discussing the odds
of making it out alive.
"Which one of us is gonna
be next?" the man asked.
"I said, 'We gotta keep
things going. You can't talk
like that,'" Swanner recalls.
He says the man had a
German pistol he'd lifted off of
a dead soldier at Normandy.
"The man told me if any-
thing happened to him, to take
the pistol. I told him nothing
was going to happen to him.
"Thirty minutes later, the
guy was working On a mine.
I said, 'Be careful working on
that thing,' and he said 'Don't
worry about me, Sarge.'
"The mine exploded and
he lost his head.
"I went over and took the
pistol off of him. I still got
it-my grandson has it now,"
he says.
Swanner was part of the
238th Division. Hle says he
thinks about his experience
in World War II often. Before
D-Day, he'd already served
18 months, located in North
Africa. He returned after his
enlistment 33 months later.
Back in Oct. of 2007, Swan-
ner was given an even bigger
surprise as he got to fly in an
Aeronica, which was panted
to look like they did in 1946 on
D-Day in World War II.
The plane was restored
by Mark and Rhonda Lamon,
Swanner's grandchildren, to
look just like it did when used
on that historical day back in
World War II.
"Mark kind of snuck the
plane in on me," said Rhonda.
"But when he told me what
he was planning on doing I
couldn't say very much."
Swanner himself was
speechless when he saw the
plane that bore his name be-
low the pilot's window.
"I am sure glad he did
this," said Swanner, after
taking a flight on the plane.

The Pertnonal Adlon of

charged with two counts of
possession of child pornog-
raphy; Joseph Misleh, 56, of
Mary Esther, Florida. Mis-
leh's employment is listed
as a lawn care worker and
he was charged with on-
line solicitation of a minor
and traveling to meet a
minor for a sexual encoun-
ter; and David Girard, 53,
of Robertsdale, Alabama.
Girard is also listed as un-
employed. He was charged
with online solicitation of a
minor and attempted lewd
and lascivious battery.
Sgt. Scott Haines of the
Santa Rosa County Sheriff's
Office 'says Girard had trav-
eled from Alabama to Santa
Rosa County to attempt to
meet with what he thought
was a minor for a sexual en-
."Mr. Girard definitely did
not expect law enforcement
to be meeting him.. .he trav-'
eled to meet up with a mi-
nor, but someone he did not
expect was waiting for him.
He certainly appeared sur-
prised at being met by law
enforcement," said Haines.
Hatch and Girard were
booked into the Santa Rosa
County Jail and Misleh was
booked into the Okaloosa
County Jail.
Over the course of the
investigation, 11 search war-
rants were served in Santa
Rosa, Okaloosa, and Escam-
bia counties.
McMullen says that sub-
jects being investigated in
the ongoing operation are
represented by each agency
Haines says the taskforce
expects many more arrests.
"Not only did we ar-
rest these three individuals
and serve the 11 warrants,
the other thing, even after
people see this on the news
today and realize we may
be looking at them for par-
ticipating in this last week,
even if they never get online
again, we will make more ar-
rests in reference to the in-
telligence and communica-
tions that were established
last week with these indi-
viduals," Haines says.
"We were able to open up

other cases that we are fol-
lowing up on and there are
going to be other arrests
even if these people choose
to never get on the Inter-
net again. They did already
communicate with us their
intentions and we will be
pursuing them," he says.
State Attorney William
"Bill" Eddins says he is very
impressed with the coopera-
tion of all the law enforce-
ment and prosecuting agen-
cies that were involved in
the operation.
"The level of coopera-
tion is as good as I have ever
seen. I, as the State Attorney,
appreciate that cooperation
very much. With regard to
our office, I appreciate the
cooperation of Attorney Gen-
eral Bill McCollum and I ap-
preciate him allowing Chuck
McMullen to spearhead this
operation," says Eddins.
'As Scott Haines men-
tioned, there will be several
additional arrests and our
. office will take a strong po-
sition on these cases. I am
committed to assigning two
experienced special pros-
ecutors and take a strong
position on all these cases,"
he says.
The agencies involved
in the operation included
the Attorney General's Cy-
berCrime Unit, the Santa
Rosa County Sheriff's Of-
fice, the Pensacola Police

Santa Rosa's Press Gazette I AS

Milton native is new general

manager at Savannah's Inn

Isn't it amazing what
you might find, and where
you might find yourself...
when you're lost?
In Debra Momon's case,
what she found unexpect-
edly while touring Savan-
nah one day in 1987, was
a long, happy career. Ms.
Momon, a newcomer to
the city, wandered into the
Inn at Ellis Square, seek-
ing directions. She struck
upa friendly conversation
with the clerk behind the
front desk. Soon the hotel's
manager joined in the
conversation, and within
minutes, he recognized
Ms. Momon's excellent
interpersonal skills and
management potential.
Practically on the spot,
Ms. Momon was hired as a
front desk agent that lucky
day in 1987... a move which
launched her current 22-
year-long career.
In short order, Ms. Mo-
mon was promoted to night
auditor and controller. In
1998, she was then promot-
ed to Assistant General
Manager, most recently
working closely with the
late Dominique Audran, for
more than five years. Her
dedication to the hotel is
unsurpassed, and has been
recently rewarded with her
appointment to General
Manager. Ms. Momon is
the only woman to hold this
position at one of the larg-
est hotels in the Historic
Savannah district. With the
hotel's owner's encourage-
ment to pursue this presti-
gious position, Ms. Momon
succeeded in a competitive-
field which included more
than 200 applicants.
A "military kid" born in
Lafayette, LA and raised
in Milton, FL, Ms. Momon
joined the Army in the late
1970s to see the world. Her
seven-year military career
included a wedding, two

daughters, and four years
as a sergeant stationed in
Manheim, Germany. When
her husband was trans-
ferred to Hunter Army
Airfield in Savannah, Ms.
Momon decided to leave
the service because her
daughters were entering
school, and for the first
time in her life, Ms. Momon
was free to explore her new
home, which led her to the
Inn at Ellis Square.
"Finding innovative
ideas and thinking outside
the box" are two of Ms. Mo-
mon's challenges as Gen-
eral Manager. "Because
so many young people are
traveling these days, we
want to be sure that we're
using the most current
Internet tools to reach
this audience," she said.
Her primary goals for this
year are to maintain room
rates that are competitive
with the market, and offer
the best customer service
in the downtown area. "At

the Inn at Ellis Square, we
want our guests to know
that our staff is available to
them at all times to guide
them and give them an
excellent lodging experi-
ence," Ms. Momon said.
As she takes the helm
at the Inn at Ellis Square,
Ms. Momon acknowledges
the family-like culture that
is fostered among, staff
and employees. Perhaps
reminiscing upon her own
long career at the hotel,
Ms. Momon said that her
greatest joy as General
Manager is to "watch new-
ly-promoted people find
their niche within our sys-
tem, and continue to grow
and prepare for their next
Within her own personal
family, Ms. Momon and her
husband of twenty-nine
years attend St. Paul AME
Church and enjoy spend-
ing time with their two
daughters and four grand-

We never dreamed that "taking down her shin-
gle" might ever happen, but a source close to
Coma Lee Owens tells us that after a career of over
33 years in Real Estate, "...she has as of the first of
2009 retired."
Coma Lee is an admirable lady, ageless, gra-
cious, vibrant, poised, and forever pleasant! She
has been certainly professionally successful, and
s .. we bet the value of the real estate deals she has
negotiated in her career would approach figures in
the national debt! 4
Coma Lee, a native of Brewton, Alabama,
moved to Milton in 1963 when she and her hus-
band, the late Major Jack C. Owens, built their
home on Berryhill Road. Then in March of 1967
her husband, a Marine helicopter pilot stationed in
Vietnam, was killed in action:
While raising her children as a single parent,
Coma Lee Owens Coma Lee involved herself in, among others,
school activities and pertinent issues surrounding
her children's interests. And as a family provider she was tremendously successful in rais-
ing her family: sons, Guy Thompson and Steve Owens, and daughter, Jennifer Owens
Anchors. Now she has been blessed with four grandchildren, Katie Thompson and Ryan,
Kate, and Emma Anchors.
Coma Lee is unconditionally committed to serving her Lord through her involve-
ment in her religious activities. She credits her success to her strong Christian values,
which she holds high above all else. As an active member of the First Baptist Church in
Milton, she has taught Senior High School Sunday School, served on numerous commit-
tees, and is presently the Joy Sunday School Class Teacher.
Her strong sense of helping others is reflected in the personal and charitable contri-
butions of her own time and effort. She recently has worked to help start the Celebrate
Recovery Program, a recovery program for adults, at First Baptist Church. In addition she
has volunteered with Habitat for Humanity serving as chair of the Santa Rosa County
Selections Committee, and was an early supporter and volunteer for the Family Promise
Program in Milton.
It's time, Coma Lee, for you to take some time for yourself and enjoy some of the
things you never had time for while providing for your family and others. We salute you
for your dedication and commitment to your Christian values and for your genuine care
for others. It's human resources like yours that have made this community the strong
institution that it is!

We are losing

the great ones

too quickly

It is almost comical to listen to people talk
about who is the best athlete, the best musi-
cian, etc.
At some point in time, wehave all been guilty
of elevating someone to the status of "hero,"
but who really should be our heroes?
Well, unfortunately we are watching a spe-
cific group of true heroes slowly fade into his-
This week, many Milton residents paid final
respects to a man who certainly deserves the
hero moniker.
Mr. Frank Swanner deserved more respect
than any athlete, musician, or public servant.
We would bet Daniel Webster would be
hard pressed to find a better example of a true
American, patriot, and, yes, hero.
Milton is not alone in having such a hero.
America was blessed with plenty of them in
what is, arguably, America's greatest genera-
tion. We speak, of course, of the generation
which served in World War II.
Swanner is just one example of this genera-
tion. He, like so many of the others of his gen-
eration, lived a quiet and modest existence.
Now, as each day passes, we continue to lose
more and more from this heroic generation.
* Individuals like Swanner loved God and
family and America with such passion it is
hard to measure.
Today, many find it hard to imagine the
thoughts of a young man, like Swanner, who
answered his nation's call to service and, later,
was on a boat, liberating a nation?
In his early 20s, he faced something hard
for many today to grasp: the concept of a war
that extends, not just to another country, but
across the entire globe.
Swanner's generation did not burn draft
cards. They just served.
They fought forces on two different fronts as
soldiers served in Europe and in the Pacific.
This is the generation that raised the Flag
over Iwo Jima and trudged through Flanders
Now, as a country, we are watching them
leave us... one by one.
. It's frightening to think where we would be
today if it were hot for Frank Swanner and so
many others of his ilk.
They maintained freedom when it was
threatened more than it has ever been done in
the world's history.
Unfortunately, we are losing actual history
faster than people can actually write accounts
'of their travels and encounters.
This is not an attempt to romanticize War...
that's something best left to authors like Er-
nest Hemmingway, but we do need to realize
what these soldiers and their families did.
Before we look at a hero on a ball field... or on
a stage.. .or on the tube.. .or on the big screen,
we need to take a hard look at the people who
gave so much and asked so little in return.
Swannerand the members of his genera-
tion answered a call which, we hope, will never
be made again. But, for having the courage to
do that, we all owe a gratitude we can never
We tip our hats, lower our heads and say
thanks to this special generation while also
saying farewell to Frank Swanner. He allowed
us to live free and live the life we currently

Lap dance of luxury:

Strippers teach Econ 101

Cost of undergraduate
degree from Georgia Tech:
Night of partying at a
strip club:
$ 53,000
Dad's reaction to son's
$53,000 one night bill:

It has happened again!
A Florida man says that his
son was taken advantage of
by a Panhandle strip joint.
The father gave his son his
credit card to celebrate his
graduation from Georgia
Tech and the boy ran up a
$53,000 tab. It appears that
the strippers were the only
ones who got a happy) end-
I guess the son, cata-
pulted to an undergrad de-
gree at age 24, didn't learn
the economics of real life,
chief among them is to nev-
er give strippers a free shot
at your credit card when
you are drunk.
Much like their breth-
ren the lawyers, strippers
quickly size up a potential
client for what they can
fleece from them based
on how much money they
have and how naive' they
I have always supported
the honest entrepreneur,
especially when pitted
against the stupid. It is
good for society when mon-
ey is not left too long in idi-
ot hands. It is God's way of
getting money into smarter
folks' pockets. For the less

us, I call it
ism, and
it is often
done one
$5 bill at
Ron Hart a time.
Columnist As the
old saying
goes, "A fool and his money
are soon parted." In this
case, a fool and his dad's
money were soon partying.
I do understand these
men who spend silly
amounts of money in strip
clubs. I have had friends
whose longest female re-
lationships have lasted
just two table dances. Men
go to these clubs to make
themselves feel important
because somewhere in
their lif-I they are lacking in
self-esteem or affirmation.
They are paying for the il-
lusion of being a big shot
and are, suspended briefly
in the thought that these
women actually think they
are attractive. They often
get buyer's remorse when
the stripper's cooing and
ego-stroking ends, which
.invariably happens right
when the guy's money runs
out. Who knew?
Surprisingly, our gov-
ernment, which likes to wet
its beak in all vices, has yet
to devise a way to muscle in
on the strip joint business.
But they will someday. The
feds paid farmers to grow

tobacco, taxed cigarettes
and then pushed lawsuits
against manufacturers.
Governments are now into
gambling, sponsoring their
own state lotteries (akin to
running numbers). They
license casinos, mostly for
Native Americans, to re-
lieve their guilt so Indians
can get Manhattan back
- one nickel slot at a time.
And of course, there is
booze, where government
takes an inordinate cut of
the sales of alcohol. Then
there is the Mustang Ranch
bordello that the Feds once
took and tried to run. Only
our government could be as
inept as to not make money
selling sex and booze. They
later sold it.
For the youngsters out
there, it is best to view the
government as a mob boss,
without the protection or
moral consistency. Govern-
ment's involvement in all
things vice related is how
it establishes the moral
high ground that allows it
to tax us and tell us how we
should conduct our lives.
Now, I do not go to strip
clubs. It is not that I have
any opposition to them.
Your average stripper is
a person who is doing the
best she can with the assets
she has to make money and
provide for her family, and I
respect that mostly her
assets. Basically, I do not
go simply because I am too
cheap to enjoy a strip club
- and do not view such as
a spectator sport.

As for the Georgia Tech
grad, it sounds like he got
a master's in finance that
night for $53,000. Welcome
to the real world, buddy
boy! Too bad that, in your
midtwenties, your dad is
still fighting your battles.
There is a job waiting for
you in the government pro-
curement office.
Pain is an excellent
teacher, and often in a so-
ciety that makes excuses
for bad behavior, it can be
the only teacher. Of course,
ridicule helps, which is
what I do. It is my way of
giving lack. I am, if noth-
ing, a giver.
The dad, in playing the
victim card here, is funny
to me. Poor kid! The strip-
per and seedy club owner
took the money he signed
for. The 24-year-old must
be devastated. Who can he
trust after that experience?
Not even Oprah would take
up his cause on this one.
Experiences are life's
lessons through which cer-
tain harsh truths are con-
veyed to us Homo sapiens
- and straight sapiens,
too. I would like to think
that our education system
would teach them, but I
have long ago given up on
government-run schools.
Leave it to a stripper to
teach this boy and others
one of the most valuable
lessons of life: Don't be an
idiot. Everyone has a role
in our society, even strip-


What is the truth?

Hopefully, I will be correct
on the exact dates on what
was said on a local media
outlet and very close on what
was said. I think recordings
should be available.

a co-host on this 8 a.m. pro-

covered billions or trillions of

Did he not say that be-

would supply the U.S. with
oil for eternity.
A caller on this program

and questioned the above.

Dear Pastor Gallups "I heard you on WEBY 1330
recently with Dr. Orly Taitz and Mario Apuzzo dis-
cussing Obama's eligibility to be President. That was
my first hearing of this issue...what is going on?"
D.D. Milton
(Second of THREE ARTTCLES on this tonic)

Dear D.D.,
In last week's article, I dealt with the
Constitutional issue of Mr. Obama's apparent ineligi-
bility to sit as President. It appears that he may not
have been born on American soil and/or to parents,
both of which were not American citizens at the time
of his birth. Mr. Obama has confused the matter by
S having any and all records that would verify these
___.____. I facts...sealed.
In the meantime, Dr. Orly Taitz, Esq. Has a case
pending before the Supreme Court of the U.S. naming
n P over 100 military officials and 7 State Representatives
Iue from several different states as plaintiffs. They allege
S[ that until they can be certain that Mr. Obama meets
*Inc. the Constitutional requirements to hold office, they
cannot rightfully and faithfully follow his orders as
President and Commander in Chief.
Similarly, Mr. Mario Apuzzo, Esq. has just
2 2 served Congress, Obama, Pelosi and Reid with a suit
with Mr. Charles Kerschner, Ret. Navy Commander,
as the lead plaintiff. He alleges that as a citizen and as
a military official that he was defrauded by these per-
sons and entities during the election and,inauguration
on, FL 32570 process. He alleges that it was and is their responsi-
S, ability to determine the eligibility of the President
under the Constitution.
Both of these cases are now pending and will
probably receive national-attention soon. This truly is
a Constitutional Crisis of the most severe magnitude.
Our own local Congressman has basically said that he
is "Letting others (the courts) handle the issue." Even
though he took an oath to defend and uphold the
Constitution, thus far he has not investigated or
reported any details of this matter back to his con-
stituents in spite of numerous'requests for him to do
I will be involved in this matter until it is resolved.
If a constitutional matter of this magnitude is unim-
portant to our Congress and Courts... what could hap-
pen to our First and Second Amendment rights in the
near future?

SWANNER from page Al

"There is not a day that
passes where I don't think
back about that day."
Swanner, who was an en-
gineer in the Army, was more
focused on the task at hand
as his company stormed the
beaches of Nomandy on D-
"I wasn't thinking 'about
airplanes overhead in the be-
ginning," said Swanner, who
achieved the rank of Ser-
geant. "For a moment I was
scared to death, but I knew I
had a job to do.
"If I had let my fear show
then I wouldn't have been
able to lead the men."
Mark, who joined the
family by marriage, spent 10
years in the military and dur-
ing that time jumped out of
helicopters at night into the
water to rescue people.
"Some people might con-
sider me brave, but he had
more bravery on that one
day than I will ever have in
my entire life," said Mark.
"He is part of a wonderful
breed and era."
While family gathered
and enjoyed the moment of
seeing what became known
as the 'Paw Paw Plane,'
Swanner himself took time
to look at photos taken dur-

ing the yearlong project to
note the progress that.had
been made.
Back when the Aeronica
was built it would cost $3,500
brand new, but today Ameri-
can Champion has re-re-
leased the two seat 'tail drag-
ger' and it runs $100,000.
"These planes would spin
and tip over very easily," said
Mark, who is planning on
taking the plane to a fly-in
where the plane was origi-
nally built in Middleton, Ohio
this coming June. "Because
of all of the problems this
type of plane experienced is
why they moved to the tri-
cycle they have underneath
planes today."
Earlier this year the
plane was taken to a regional
fly-in held in Evergreen, Ala.,
where it was a hit.
"Everyone liked the job I
did on the plane," said Mark.
"But when I tied in the fact
of Frank people really con-
nected with the plane.
"Fi-ank is the only grand-
' father Ireally got to know and
I was able to tie him into iny
interest and hobbies along
with my families past."
Mark pointed out he
learned during the restora-
tion that the stripes on the

plane were painted just for
"To help the soldiers on
the ground recognize the
planes in the air, they took
brooms and white paint to
put the stripes on," said
Mark "They put the stripes
underneath the wings, so
only the soldiers could see
While sharing some sto-
ries of his experiences af-
ter landing on Utah Beach,
Swanner recalled encoun-
tering a German aircraft.
"We were moving along
at a pretty good pace after
the initial landing and we
heard a German plane over-
head while walking down
the middle of this road," said
Swanner. "I hit the ground
and not more than five feet
from me I saw a bullet hit the
"I dug the bullet out,
which was still hot, and put
it in the pocket of my ETO
jacket and kept it there."
Swanner lost that bul-
let during the war as some-
one took his ETO jacket at
a rest stop where he took a
The day just kept bring-
ing back more memories for
Swanner, who admitted he

had lost his 50-caliber ma-
chine gun.
"Two others and me were
in a hole we had dug and we
would sleep and hour and
stay on guard," recalled
Swanner. "It was so dark out
there you could hardly see
anything at all so you had a
pistol in one hand and were
ready to grab the trigger of
the machine gun with our
"While I was looking out
I reached out to check on
my gun and it wasn't there.
I started to feel around and
realized the gun and the
Germans were at my back
as I had been looking the
wrong way."
After moving to Milton,
Swanner quickly became ac-
tive in the church and com-
munity. He served in many
capacities at Ferris Hill
Baptist Church, including
Deacon and music leader.
He was also treasurer of the
Santa Rosa Baptist Associa-
tion for many years.
In the community he
served on the Santa Rosa
County Civil Service,Board,
the Local Democratic Com-.
mittee, the Kiwanis Club
and was successful in busi-
Swanner loved to talk to

people and especially the
Wendy's Lunch Brunch as
well as visiting with every-
one at New Life Baptist
Church, where he wor-
shipped since 1986. He even
played in a church softball
league at age 63.

FWC graduates ready for woods and water duty

A new group of Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission (FWC) law enforcement officers will
soon begin patrolling the woods and waters of the state.
Twenty-six FWC recruits became officers after grad-
uating Friday from the Pat Thomas Law Enforcement
Academy in Tallahassee. The recruits attended the
academy for six months and received a wide array of
training, which included accuracy with firearms, alliga-
*tor handling, vessel operation, defensive tactics, all-ter-
rain vehicle operation and BUI/DUI identification. They
will spend an additional three months with a field-train-
ing officer.
The new graduates are assigned to counties through-
out the state. Two of the officers come from different

states. Officer Jarod Molnar is from Georgia and is as-
signed to Palm Beach County, and Officer Evan Las-
kowski is from Maryland and is assigned to Glades
Locally the grads corning to Northwest Florida are
Sulin Schafer for Escambia County and John Standland
in Washington County.
The FWC's Division of Law Enforcement protects
and manages 755 species of wildlife and more than 700
species of fish. The division patrols 34 million acres of
public and private land, 8,200 miles of tidal shoreline,
3 million acres of lakes and 12,000 miles of rivers and
streams. FWC officers are authorized to enforce all state
laws and federal fisheries and wildlife laws.

Fish and Wildlife REPORT

This report represents some events,
the Northwest Region of the FWC
handled from March 13 to March 19;
however, it does not include all actions
taken by the Division of Law Enforce-


Officer Fred Rondeau checked a
vessel near the 17th Avenue boat ramp,
which is adjacent to the FWC Pensacola
field office. Officer Rondeau found the
operator of the vessel in possession of
an oversize red drum. The individual
also did not have a valid fishing license.
Officer Rondeau issued a Notice to Ap-
pear citation for the illegal fish and a
warning for the license violation.

Officers Kenneth Manning and Gary
Ridaught were on patrol of Perdido
River Wildlife Management Area near
an area known as The Pipes. Officer
Manning spoke to one individual in the
area and could smell an odor of canna-
bis on him. Officer Manning questioned
the subject about the odor and the indi-
vidual admitted that he had some can-
nabis and produced it. Officer Manning
issued the subject a Notice to Appear
citation for possession of less than 20
grams of cannabis.

Lt. Dan Hahr was on enhanced patrol
in the Perdido River Wildlife Manage-
ment Area when he observed a vehicle
drive into the area an hour after the le-
gal access time. When Lieutenant Hahr
stopped the vehicle, he noticed suspi-
cious behavior that eventually led to a
search of the vehicle. The driver was
found in possession of a small amount of
cannabis and a pipe. The driver was is-
sued a Notice to Appear citation for the
drug charges and a warning for enter-
ing the area after legal hours.

Lt. Dan Hahr was on enhanced pa-
trol in the Perdido River Wildlife Man-
agement Area when he observed three
subjects parked on the boat ramp at
Sand Landing within the management
area. Upon contact, Lieutenant Hahr
learned the three individuals had been
fishing and had let their truck battery
die. During a consent search of the
truck, Lieutenant Hahr observed a pre-
scription pill bottle of Zoloft in the truck
A few moments later, the driver asked
for permission to get some toilet pa-
per out of the truck and did so. The pill
bottle turned up missing immediately
afterward. When Lieutenant Hahr
questioned the driver, she admitted to
hiding the pills which she said belonged

to a friend. She showed Lieutenant
Hahr where she buried the 30 pills and
the bottle in separate places. Lieuten-
ant Hahr issued her a Notice to Appear
citation for interfering with a FWC Of-
ficer. Further charges are pending.

Officers Kenneth Manning and John
Bell responded to a request for assis-
tance by the captain of a returning fish-
ing vessel. The captain reported a small
vessel with suspicious individuals who
attempted to come alongside and board
his vessel while underway. The captain
reported that the two males on board
the suspect vessel were shouting at him
and demanding he stop. When the fish-
ing captain refused, the suspect vessel
repeatedly drove in front of his vessel.
Officers Bell and Manning located the
suspect vessel and an investigation of
the incident revealed the operator was
boating under the influence. The vessel
operator was arrested and transported
to the Escambia County Jail. Upon ar-
rival, the intoxicated male claimed the
FWC officers had "beaten him up". The
FWC officers then transported the ar-
rested male to a Pensacola hospital
where x-rays and an examination by
a physician proved no abuse had oc-
curred. A request for blood for testing
purposes was refused by the arrested
male. The male was then transported
to the Escambia County Jail where Of-
' ficer Bell booked the man on the charge
of boating under the influence. Officer
Bell will submit the appropriate court
paperwork to assess civil fines for the

Officer Keith Clark was on ATV pa-
trol in Perdido Key when he checked
two different underage groups drinking
alcohol. Officer Clark issued five Notice
to Appear citations for the violations.


Officers Monte Moye, Steve Hoomes,
and Royce Johnson responded to a sin-
gle vessel accident with victims in the
water on the Blackwater River. Upon
arrival,.The officers learned the 14-foot
long vessel was being operated very
close to the river's edge when the oper-
ator suddenly lost control and the ves-
sel turned abruptly toward the woods
ejecting the operator and passenger.
The operator sustained numerous
abrasions and a possible broken ankle
and was transported to the Santa Rosa
Medical Center in Milton. One possible
contributing factor being investigated
involves overpower of the vessel which
was equipped with a 40 hp engine. Of-

ficer Royce Johnson is conducting the


Officer Mike Nobles conducted a
follow-up investigation regarding the
seizure of a vessel with the hull identi-
fication numbers removed. In addition,
the registration didn't match the ves-
sel. Lt. Jay Chesser and Officer Nobles
interviewed one subject who produced
a fictitious Bill of Sale and later inter-
viewed another subject who admitted
to removing the hull identification plate.
One charge of interfering with an inves-
tigation has been issued and additional
charges are forthcoming.

Officer David Erdman was the re-
cipient of the annual Mothers Against
Drunk Driving (MADD) Award for hav-
ing the most arrests for boating under
the influence in Florida. The award was
presented at the MADD annual awards
banquet in Tallahassee. This is the sev-
enth year in a row that Officer Erdman
has received this award, confirming his
commitment to boating safety and pre-
venting boating while under the influ-


Lt. Kent Harvey was on water patrol
on Lake Talquin when he conducted a
vessel stop on a 24-foot-long pontgon
boat near Whippoorwill Marina. During
.the safety inspection, Lieutenant Har-
vey noticed signs of impairment. After
field sobriety tasks were conducted,
the operator was arrested for felony
boating under the influence and an out-
standing parole warrant. The operator
had seven prior convictions with four of
those convictions being in Florida. The
operator was transported and booked
into the Gadsden County Jail.

Officer Chris Jones responded to
a two vessel crashes with injuries on
Lake Talquin. Two 16-year-old females
were operating personal watercrafts
when one of the girls lost control and
hit the other operator ejecting her from
her watercraft. Other boaters assisted
the females in getting to the Ben Stouta-
mire boat ramp. Emergency Manage-
ment Services arrived .and transported
the females to Tallahassee Memorial
Hospital. One female sustained no in-
juries and the other had minor injuries
to her right leg. Both operators were is-
sued warnings for no boating safety ID
and one was issued a warning for care-
less operation.

Jones won the vacant North Ameri-
can Boxing Organizations Light Heavy-
weight Title on Saturday night with a
fifth-round TKO over Omar Sheika.
Sheika sustained a cut in the fifth
round from Jones' left hook, and he nev-
er got to see what his corner men could
do before the fight was stopped.

the partisan crowd of 6,500. Sheika's cor-
ner vehemently protested the stoppage
and even confronted referee Tommy
Kimmons after the fight was stopped at
1:25 of the fifth round.
"There was no reason to stop the
fight like that," said Nettles Nasser,
Sheika's trainer. "(Shekia) was taking it
to (Jones) the last couple of rounds.
"You didn't even give us the opportu-
nity. You didn't make a decision call. We
just wanted a chance and being a Flori-
da guy you showed favoritism."
Jones (53-5) was happy to win and
thanked the. crowd after the match
while wearing the NABO Light Heavy-
weight belt.
"I got to shake a little bit and razzle-
dazzle for the fans here in Pensacola,'
Jones said to a wild chorus of cheers.
Jones, who has hinted more than
once at retirement, even went so far as.
to ask the crowd in attendance if they
wanted to see him fight here again.
Sheika (27-9) did get a couple of sol-
id shots on Jones, who at times seemed
to be showboating a little against the
four-time championship challenger,
who was fighting for the first time af-

Despite a chorus of boos during his
post fight interview, Jeff Monson took a
decision over Roy Nelson in the mixed
martial arts main event. Neither fighter
landed many shots, but in rounds two
and three, Monson showed more ag-
gression and attacked more than Nel-
son in the eyes of many experts.
.B.J. Flores improved to 23-0 as
he won the NABO Junior Heavyweight
Championship with a 10-round decision
over Jose Luis Herrera. Herrerra, who
had won all his fights by knockout, suf-

Jason Michael Carroll's "Growing Up Is Getting
Old" will blow you away and become one of those
CD's that you keep reaching for.
Currently everyone is enjoying "Where I'm
From", but this sophomore effort is possibly loaded
with more hits that his debut "Waitin' in The
Country." That album produced hits like "Alyssa
Lies," "Livin' Our Love Song," and "I Can Sleep
When I Am Dead."
JMC's first single "Alyssa Lies" tugged pt your
heart and.Carroll has another single that could
just find that deep tender spot in the heart of even
the hardest wills with "Tears." It would be hard to
imagine Carroll topping the message of "Alyssa
Lies", but he went even further with "Tears" by
showing a divorced father's love for their child.
As this song begins with tender music and
talking to his child, you can feel the'love and how-
vulnerable a father actually is when they are not
with their child.
This album is something that Carroll doesn't just
sing, but you can feel that he has lived every word
he has put on this album.
With Carroll singing about life you feel like you
are hearing a Gen-Y version of Merle Haggard,
Bobby Bare, or Johnny Cash.


Country music fans are going to get
a huge treat during the Santa Rosa
County Fair as one country music's
hottest new talents, Jason Michael
Carroll, will get the music entertain-
ment started April 2.
Carroll is a unique talent in the mu-
sic industry as he really didn't get to
listen to much secular music until he
was old enough to drive and have a job'
at an engine shop. As his father, who
was a preacher at the time, didn't allow
the playing of secular music at home.
"It was funny, but I listened to all
types of music growing up," said Car-
roll. "I would love to run errands for
my parents so I could listen to the ra-
dio in the car, and I listened to rock,
rap and country, but country told the
best stories and heartaches.
"I actually went to bed with my
. walkman playing and pray that I woke
up before my mother did so I didn't get
Carroll is an awesome storyteller
musically, and he takes a lot of time to
craft the songs you hear, as he records

songs he has co-written.
One of those hits was his debut sin-
gle, "Alyssa Lies."
"A friend of mine in Texas had writ-
ten a poem on child, abuse that really
touched my heart," Carroll said. "I
then went home to North Carolina to
get my family when a story on child
abuse made me realize I needed to
write this song.
"I write some dark stilff, and I got
the message that I needed to write this
It took Carroll longer than two
-years to finish the song, and he put the
country industry on its relative ear as
he dealt with the issue of child abuse.
"I don't try to force a song, but I let
them come as it wants to come," said
Carroll. "I feel like if you force a song,
then you lose the message of it."
On his upcoming sophomore album,
"Growing Up Is Getting Old," Carroll
helped co-write three of the 10 songs.
This album is set to be released
on April 28 by Sony Music Entertain-
When Carroll takes the main stage
at the Santa Rosa County Fair, him and
his band should be right in the swing of
things as he is returning to the road.

"We have been off for the past
month and by the time we get to Mil-
ton we should be back into the swing
of things," said Carroll. "We are ex-
cited about getting back on the road
and meeting our fans and playing for
Carroll admitted his show is not like
a lot of shows as he plays some songs
you won't find on an album and many
others don't know about until they
make it on YouTube or some other in-
ternet site.
"I will play some of my 'under-
ground" music as well as a couple of
covers," said Carroll, who last visited
the area opening for Carrie Under-
wood in Mobile.
A possible cover could include a
song or two from his favorite rock
group Aerosmith, which is what he
is known for playing at some air
"It is hard to say exactly what we
are going to play at the show," said
Carroll. "But no matter what I do, I am
still the same kid who grew up on a to-
bacco farm in North Carolina."
Today many criticize artist like Car-
roll for ruining country music, includ-
ing artist like Merle Haggard, but that

doesn't bother Carroll.
"Hearing comments like that from
(Merle) is an ironic twist of fate to
me," said Carroll. "Back in the 70's
they were saying the very same things
about him.
"What was the outlaw movement
back then is part of the norm now."
Carroll not only does ballads, but
also some edgy party songs as he has
not forgotten his roots of playing honky
tonks and as he puts it "living country
So what is his father saying about
his music today, when he didn't allow
secular music being played at home
when Carroll was young.
"It is ironic you ask that as I think
he has come around some even though
he is not a preacher now," said Carroll.
"After I played my second show on the
Grand Ole Opry stage I got a message
on my cell phone.
"The message was from my mom
and dad who watched the show to-
gether and they called me to say how
proud they were of me."
Carroll kept that message for al-
most two years until he had to replace
his cell phone and lost the message he
carried with him.

More than the auction-
ing of personal' property,
Florabama Auction Ser-
vices also provides indi-
viduals and businesses with
comprehensive services to
be an all-in-one -solution.
It can market residential
and commercial real estate
through traditional sales
methods as well as through
the auction method.
"In slow real estate mar-
kets, as is currently being
experienced, properties ad-
vertised through traditional
real estate sales techniques
can remain on the market
for long periods of time with
little or no activity, signifi-
cantly increasing carrying
costs such as mortgage
payments, taxes, and insur-

ance, etc., for the seller,"
Cherylyn said.
. In instances such as
these, the auction method
of selling can not only save
sellers money in carrying
costs and sales commis-
sions, but also can facilitate
the sale of the property on a
specific date established by
the seller, usually within 60
days, she continued.
Steven agrees. "The
real estate auction method
is the most effective way of
introducing the seller to se-
rious and qualified buyers,"
he said, "aid much like auc-
tion for fine art, antiques
and collectibles, it is grow--
ing in popularity, because it

The celebration will begin at

The American Legion was
started in 1919 in. Paris, France.
George Aleck Faulk, to whom the
flagpole is being dedicated, was
one of the first men who signed
the charter to establish the
American Legion.
"The largest Veterans' organi-
zation in the country was formed
as WWI was winding down. A
group of Veterans, including
George Alack Faulk, from Bag-


Faulk served in Asia,
Africa, Europe, Iraq, Iran,
Turkey, and a host of other
countries during his na-
val career. During WWII,
Faulk served aboard the
USS Chicago, which was
credited with sinking 14
enemy ships during the
course of one day.

dad Florida, decided to
start an organization so
they could stay in con-
tact. Thus, beginning the
American Legion," says
Commander of the Ameri-
can Legion Post # 78 Tom
Faulk was a native and 6EOR1
lifelong resident of this FA
.area. He retired from the,
U.S. Civil Service and retired
from the U.S. Navy after 32 years
of service, some of which was
spent in both WWI and WWII.
He was a member of the Al-
pha Lodge # 172 F & AM of Ft.
Walton Beach and the 24th char-
ter-signing member in establish-
ing the American Legion.
Faulk died in June of 1996 at
the age of 96.
Faulk, who was born in 1900,
had just turned 16 when he joined
the Navy.
Griffith says Faulk was an ex-
ceptional person.
He survived and overcame
the trauma of being aboard
two ships that sank and he was
awarded the WWI Commemora-
tive Medal a few days before his
death," says Griffith.
