residents and students

trated by restrictions
stemming from an ACLU
lawsuit. *
On Memorial Day
about 200 students andI
parents gathered to pray
and protest outside Pace
High School, and Tuesday
night about 1,000 gath-
ered inside Pace Assem-
bly of God to let their dis-
pleasure be known.
Mary Allen, the Pace
senior class president
who learned on Thurs-
day that she would not be
able to address those at
tonight's graduation, is
disappointed but is also
looking to help those in
the future.
"I went and spoke with
Mr. Wyrosdick on Fri-
day about our conflicting
views;" Allen said. "My
concern is not about me
not getting to speak, but
for next year.
"I asked Mr. Wyrosdick
what we needed to do to
avoid this again and for
some guidelines from the
school board so we can
avoid this."
Based on Thursday's
policy handed down by
the school board and at-
torney Paul Green, only
the valedictorian and
salutatorian can speak'
- but not the class presi-
dent or any other student
body representative.
Concerns about how
the student body presi-
dent was elected has
come into question be-
cause the faculty does

The only senior class
president expected to
speak at graduation is

durant, as he is also the

ed down the policy, is not
very happy with the deci-
sion himself.

The consent decree
handed down restricts
matters related to prayer

One issue related to
the policy is that students

Milton drivers

A blown tire on the east-
bound lanes of the Interstate
10 Escambia Bay bridge led

Representativesfrom county
departments and agencies that'
perform operations, planning
and logistics functions during
activation will participate.
Disaster exercises are used
to practice the county's stan-
dard procedures, identify areas
of improvement and allow staff
providing emergency support
the opportunity to role-play the
specific functions they perform
before, during and after a disas-
ter. As part of the exercise, new
response tools including digital

billboards, disaster mapping,
cell phone mapping systems
and SKYPE will be tested.

Wednesday, 5:50 p.m.
I wanted to say congratula-
tions to Ms. Sotomayor and to
ask-everyone here to support
her. We are very happy to see.
she is being nominated for a
seat on the Supreme Court. She
is an honest person and very,
very smart. With the grace of
God she will help the govern-
ment. She is beautiful and we
thank God for that.

Yeah, this is Tony. I was at
the rally for the kids in Santa
Rosa County at Pace Assem-
bly of God. There were an es-
timated 961 people there. A lot
of students and parents, but it
is a shame it wasn't standing
room only. People are moving
to Santa Rosa County because
of our schools, but yet they are
bringing their problems to our
schools and the ACLU. Keep
the quality of our school and
county, while keeping God in

this nation.

.Yes, it is very sad a 14-year
old boy cannot make a decision
for his own without the cops
coming in. He is not allowed to
decide if he wants chemo to bat-
tle cancer or not, when that will
kill him as the poison takes over
his body. All the judges are mak-
ing the decisions instead of the
children. This is not Russia and
communism; this is America.

ca where you are free to do what
you want.

We are really proud the Pace
High Band is marching in D.C.,
but we hope this will inspire
their performances to be more
creative during their halftime
shows. This past season spec-
tators only saw them do their

that? What happened to enter-

Editor's note: The bands
who perform at high school
football games do their compe-
tition shows as this is a major
endeavor and it is a way to
perform/practice for competi-
tions where they are graded on

scale show of the magnitude
you see takes more than a cou-
ple of days.

This is Gene. The best way
to kill our nation is to take God
out of it. We have done a good
job on that so far as we are on
the edge of destruction. Now
the Santa Rosa County School
Board will not allow religious
freedom at graduation. Are we
going to stand for this? The
ACLJ offered to represent the
school board for free, why didn't
we use them. If we let them con-
tinue this we will no longer have

This is great information. Did

at local hardware stores and tell
you how to treat the problem.

This is John in Pace. I think
it is senseless for the county
to spend money on a four-mile
sidewalk around a helicop-
ter field. Instead of doing this
around Spencer Field I think
the money could be better spent
on a red light. Especially when
they are making cutbacks. Four
miles of sidewalks don't sound
right to me.

'Bee' aware of pollination in the vegetable garden

By Theresa Friday
Extension Faculty-Residential
Horticulture UF/IFAS Santa
Rosa County

When growing squash,
vigorously growing plants
and lots of pretty, yellow
flowers are good signs
but certainly not a guar-
antee that you will have a
bountiful harvest. Actu-
ally, those healthy-looking
plants and showy flowers
may be signaling a time
for you to literally get "as
busy as a bee."
Squash, like all mem-
bers of the cucurbit fam-
ily, have separate male
and female flowers on the
same plant. For fruit set
to occur, pollen must be
transferred from the male
to the female flower. This
process (pollination) is a
function normally carried
out by insects, most often
honeybees. '
The primary reason
the numerous yellow flow-
ers may yield little, if any,'
squash is an absence of
honeybees and the result-
ing lack of pollination. This
is especially true in urban/
suburban areas where
honeybees seldom choose
to build their hives.
An absence of honey-

bees is a real problem,
but one that can easily be
overcome if you are willing
to take their place. You car!
,play "bee" by hand trans-
ferring the pollen from the
male to the female flow-
ers. It's simple, easy and
almost always guaranteed
to result in plenty of gar-
den-fresh squash for your
dinner table.
Before we get into the
art of "playing bee," you
obviously need to be able
to tell the difference be-
tween the male and fe-
male flowers. The female
squash flowers are those
that have a very distinct
swelling or enlargement
directly behind the pet-
als which is actually the
small, immature squash
fruit. The male flowers
lack the immature fruit
and are simply attached to
the plant by a long, slen-
der stem. Both male and
female squash flowers are
open only for a single day.
They open during early
morning and generally
close by mid afternoon.

Pollination is best done in
the morning, when high
humidity helps to activate
the pollen.
Playing bee can be ac-
complished in several dif-
ferent ways.
You can use a cotton
swab or ,a small paint
brush to transfer the pol-

len from the male to the
female flower. Simply dab
either the swab or brush
into the center of a fully
open male flower, mak-
ing sure some of the yel-
low pollen grains adhere
to the cotton or bristles.
Then, transfer the pol-
len by dabbing the swab

or brush into the center
of an open female flower.
In most cases there is
enough pollen in one male
flower to pollinate three to
five female flowers.
A less sophisticated,
but just as effective, meth-
od when playing "bee" is
to simply pull off an open
male flower, remove or
peel back the flower pet-
als and then dab its pol-
len-laden center into the
center of an open female
flower. Make sure the cen-
ter of the male flower (an-
ther) makes good contact
with the center (stigma)
of the female flower. Since
this is a much less pollen-
efficient technique, use
one male flower to polli-
nate no more than three
female flowers.
If you find reason to
treat your, squash with
pesticides to control dis-
eases or insects, do, so
during late afternoon.
Spraying or dusting at this
time will greatly reduce
the chance of harming pol-
linating honey bees.

So don't let an absence
of honeybees keep you
from enjoying the great
taste of home-grown
squash. Arm yourself with

In other matters related
to the litigation:
According to a com-
plaint filed by the ACLU,
during a school-day lun-
cheon on Jan. 28 at the
dedication of the new
Field House at Pace High
School, Principal Frank
Lay asked the school's
athletic director to offer a
prayer to bless the food,
which he did.
The district superinten-
dent later instructed Lay
to "avoid this type of ac-
tion" as it violates the court
Lay, who is supporting
his students and their right
to speak, admits it is hard
to teach someone of his
years new tricks.
"I was not intentionally
trying to violate the con-
sent decree," said Lay. "It
is just something you are
used to doing, and as they
say, it is hard to teach an
old dog new tricks.
"I will work with the
superintendent and the
school board to do what can
be done, but the students
earned the right and should
get the right to speak."
Lay, who has come un-
der fire for having the Ten
Commandments displayed
in the hall of Pace High as
a historical document and
offering a class on religion
as an elective, has been ad-
vised by the school board

that they will not represent

and dean of Liberty Univer-
sity School of Law. ,

The ACLU filed court
documents against Winkler
at the first of the month.
The complaint alleges
that Winkler, an adminis-
trative 'assistant who was
asked to offer a "thought for
the day" at the Feb. 20 Em-
ployee of the Year banquet,
asked a district administra-
tor whether she could offer
a prayer. She was told she
could not.

Instead, the complaint
states, Winkler appeared
with her husband, who is
not a school district em-
ployee, and said he would

In response, the com-
plaint states, a March 10
memorandum was sent by

Winkler had no authority
to have her husband of-

should not do so in the
future. Winkler refused to

Physician marks 30 years with West Florida Community Care Center

Belen Lasquety M.D. will observe
her 30th anniversary with West
Florida Community Care Center on
May 28.
As the center's medical director,
Lasquety is responsible for caring
for the physical health needs of
patients in the 80-bed, state-owned
psychiatric hospital, which is located
on Stewart Street in Milton. People
with mental illnesses often have
physical health issues that must be
addressed with their psychiatric
When Lasquety first joined the
hospital in 1979, it was a geriatric
center caring for elderly psychiatric
patients transferred from Florida
State Hospital in Chattahoochee.
At the time, Lasiuety had limited

experience in psychiatry. Her
training was in general medicine and
obstetrics-gynecology. She studied
medical journals and consulted with
the hospital's staff psychiatrist to
gain expertise in that field.
As Florida's de-
institutionalization movement
continued, the care center went from
one that cared solely for geriatric
patients to one that cares for adults
18 years old and older. Lasquety
saw other changes in her 30 years
with West Florida Community Care
Center. In 1979, schizophrenia was
the most frequent diagnosis. Now
there are more patients diagnosed
with bipolar disorder and behavioral
disorders, she said.
In 1990 the state awarded

Lakeview Center a contract to

Care Center, which serves
Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa
and Walton counties. The focus is
on rehabilitation; helping people
develop the life skills necessary

toward a happier life. To do this,

To obey or

not to obey

We feel the thoughts of school officials and the
students they lead should be as valuable as gold.
No one is advocating a specific act, but the
thought of civil disobedience is certainly something
that would not shock us as we draw closer to the
hour of graduation when students are expected to
march into, their respective graduations as Pomp and
Circumstance plays.
But what actually is civil disobedience?
Well for those who forgot high school civics, it is
the active refusal to obey certain laws, demands and
commands of a government, or of an occupying power
without resorting to physical violence.
Not to sound like Gandhi, who became a leader of
a nation practicing and advocating civil disobedience,
but soine feel this is a way to show respectful
Despite George Washington and his thoughts
that civil disobedience was "one of the essential
destroyers of the fundamental principles of a
democracy," we must remember groups like the
American Civil Liberties Union didn't exist when
George chopped down the cherry tree or sailed a
silver dollar across the Potomac.
Washington chose to establish democracy by
shooting and going to war with those in England.
A document many of us were taught about in
school was the essay "Civil Disobedience" which
explained why Henry avid Thoreau didn't pay his
Thoreau didn't want to pay his taxes because he
was protesting slavery and his views against the
Mexican-American War.
The late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. used this very
same method as he, and those who followed him, led
Civil Rights campaigns all across the south.
The same method, with some minor adaptations,
was even used by Rosa Parks and those who
boycotted the City of Montgomery's bus system.
For their disobedience, Parks was arrested as was
Dr. King who penned his letter from the Birmingham.
Sometimes, to point out an injustice, someone
must step up and take the lumps.
These situations are not just limited to American
soil. Egyptians used this method against British
occupation in the 1919 Revolution and so did Gandhi,
who wrote his own modern rules as he campaigned
for independence from the British Empire.
We throw out this quick history lesson to set
the stage. Some Santa Rosans are thinking civil
disobedience right now.
They're thinking this out of the practice of their
religious faith. Such faith-based actions are not
historically rare, either.
One of the most noted is Phillip Berrigan, a one-
time Roman Catholic priest who has been arrested
numerous times in acts of civil disobedience
regarding antiwar protests.
Santa Rosa's 2009 graduates must decide what is
important to them.
Do they want to bow their heads to pray?
It's hard to say if there is enough faculty to stop the
400 or so seniors from praying if that's what they want
to do and if all the parents join them, there aren't
enough employees in the Santa Rosa County School
System to stop them.
And if the ACLU wants them arrested, it may be
difficult finding a judge who is willing to violate the
students' individual rights.
Members of the ACLU should remember, it is an
all or nothing situation when it comes to prayer at
school events.
To show the ACLU it is not going to win, those
willing to stand up and face the consequences should
be admired as long as they do not get physical with
their disobedience of the consent decree.
Members of the ACLU have drawn a line in the
sand with the recent consent decree. And it has
forced the Santa Rosa County Board of Education to
agree to.
Now it looks like the future generation of Santa
Rosa County has the biggest decision of its collective
Push back against the ACLU or join the
generations before them and just take another shot to
the gut as their freedoms are slowly taken away by a"
few who want to control the many.

Lawyers seldom, if ever,
study the U. S. Constitu-
tion. Those who do, are rare.
Most lawyers are indoctri-
nated into the philosophy
of Positivism, which was
introduced in the 1870s by
the Dean of Harvard Law
School (name those of our
government who are from
Harvard), Christopher
Columbus Langdell (1826-
1906). This man applied
Darwin's notion of evolution
to jurisprudence. Positivism
if nothing short of Relativ-
ism meaning everything
is "relative."
There are no absolutes,
no wrong or right. This
philosophy is prevalent
throughout our current judi-
cial system.

Langdell's atheistic phi-
losophy introduced case
law into the judiciary the
study of other judges' deci-
sions rather than what the
Constitution says. Ask any
lawyer today, and he will tell
you case law is the onlyprac-
tice from local judges to
the U. S. Supreme Court. It
used to be that judges were
asked HOW to interpret
the Constitution. Today the
question is WHETHER to
. interpret the Constitution.

A.J. Carr rushes for a touchdown in Tuesday's spring game against Pine Forest.

Pace stops Pine Forest

Photos and story by BILL GAMBLIN
Did it officially. count Tuesday
when Pine Forest visited Pace?
But you couldn't tell that by the',
efforts of the players or the coach-
es as the Patriots defense stuffed a
two-point attempt to hold on for a
7-6 win in a spring game between
two teams that will be looking for
a win over the other next spring
when it is all for real.
Up 7-0, the Pace defense saw
Pine Forest's A.J. Clark throw up a
prayer that Calvin Hunter skied to
pull in at the Patriots 11-yard line.
On the next play, Victor Brown
scampered in for an 11-yard run
and the Eagles' only score of the
Pine Forest Coach Jerry Pollard
did want to play for a tie despite it
being preseason, and called on Ta-
varris Wiggins to rush his way in
for two, but Pace's Hunter Wyros-
dick had other plans and stopped
him with one of the hardest hits of
the night to secure the win.
"Pine Forest is a heck of a pro-
gram," said Pace head coach Mick-
ey Lindsey. "It was good to play
someone else tonight, as we were
tried of hitting on each other and
they are a very physical program.
"We have a good that is working
hard and have a great attitude, and
I am real proud of their effort."
After both teams played a score-
less first quarter, Pace got on the
scoreboard first as they pieced to-
gether an impressive run.
Senior David Casey, who went
six of seven on the'night, had two
big completions on what would be
the winning drive.
The first was a 14-yard strike
from Casey to Tanner Nichols,,

Pace head coach Mickey Lindsey, above, will tell you it was just a
spring game, but his intense look as his Patriots faced the Pine Forest
Eagles will tell you otherwise. Pace defeated an upcoming district
foe in Pine Forest, 7-6. Hunter Wyrosdick and Bryce Smith, below,
combine to stop Pine Forest's Tavarris Wiggins, who attempted to
score a two-point conversion in the Patriots' 7-6 win over the Eagles.

and the second one came on sec-
ond and 17 later in the drive when
Casey found Zach Lewis for 17
yards to get the Patriots down to
the Eagles' 13-yard line.
Four plays later, the Patriots
'would punch it in as Tyler Hunt

found the end zone on a carry as
thePatriots were faced with fourth
and one from the Eagles 4 with 11
minutes remaining in the half.
Greg Perancih added the point'
after to make it 7-0.
The Patriots had only one other
scoring opportunity in the opening
drive of the game, but Perancih
was wide left on a 33-yard field goal
The Patriots accounted for 115
yards total offense as Hunt led
Pace with 31 yards on nine carries.
Casey misfired on his first pass
attempt but completed his next
six to four different targets for 79
yards, with five of the passes going
for 14 or more yards.
Pine Forest rushed for 39 yards
led by Brown with 17 yards on five
carries, while Clark threw for 44 of
the Eagles' 49 yards.

Running back ready for 'the next level'

Pace running back Travis
Scott is looking to go north
as he has signed a football
scholarship to play
at the U.S. Merchant
Marine Academy in
Kings Point, N.Y.
The future Mari-
ner running back
is excited about the
opportunity that is
awaiting him out- TRAVIS
side New York City.
"It feels real good to have
a chance to play at the next
level," said a very quiet and
reserved Scott. "The big
thing for me is I get to go
somewhere and have the
chance to play."
But what could be big-
ger for the young man who
is looking to study electrical
engineering at one of the
top electrical engineering
schools in the nation is the
1,225 miles he will be from
home and the cold winters
in the north.
"Football is football no
matter where you play it,"
Scott said. "I am sure it will
get cold, but I am going to
get my education and enjoy
the chance to continue play-
ing football."
Last season the Mari-
ners finished 3-7 with wins
over the U.S. Coast Guard
Academy, St. Lawrence and

their season finale against

with civilian students as well
as regiment or academy stu-
dents for the Marines.
"I plan on being a
civilian the first term and
then go regiment after that,"
said Scott, who was attract-
ed by the school's record
of 100 percent job .place-
It was two weeks before
the end of his senior season
ended when Scott heard '
from the Mariners.
"We got the call from
them, and Coach Lindsey
sent them some film," Scott
recalled. "My mom is not too
happy about me being that
far from home, but she will
get use to it."
Travis admitted there is
one family member in New
"My dad has an uncle in

Kaitlyn Melendez thought
her athletic career ended on
a note many would hate, but
that tune change on
The Milton catch-

standout signed a
scholarship to play
at Jefferson Davis
Community College
in Brewton, Ala. KAI
Unfortunately, as MELE
Melendez and ev-
eryone at Milton celebrated
the occasion, those close to
her subjected her to just a
little bit of ribbing.
"We are excited to have
another Panther sign a
scholarship," said Milton
athletic director Murray
Rutledge. "We are very hap-
py for her, and today proves
if you fight for something
you can achieve it."
Surprisingly, despite her
hot start to the season and
volleyball honors, Melendez
did not hear, a lot from col-
Now her excitement is
back after a disappointing
end to her senior year.
"It feels good to sign with
Jeff Davis,' Melendez said.
"Hopefully, sports will be fun
again for me.

Nims, who is the
volleyball and soft-
ball coach at JDCC,
knew before even of-
fering a scholarship
what kind of talent
Melendez has, as
she coached Kait-
TLYN lyn's sister Jessie at

"I know what
kind of player we are signing

become a very familiar face

Melendez has impressed
a lot of coaches with her
athletic talents, and Mil-
ton coach Jeff Larson gave
some insight to the type of
player the War Hawks will
be getting.
"Kaitlyn is a very good
athlete and one of the best
catchers in the area," Lar-
son said. "She is very ag-
gressive, and I feel will be an
impact player at Jeff Davis
like she was here at Milton."

Pensacola Lightning wins 'Battle of Champions' 37-0

It was a long night for the Pan-
handle Crusaders.
The PFL Champions saw what
life was like in a Lightning storm
as the Pensacola Lightning dis-
mantled them 37-0.
The members of the newly
formed Patti LaBelle Community
Football League made short work
of the Crusaders by leading 20-0
at the end of the first quarter.
Then the two-time NAFL Divi-

sion 1 South Region Champions
went on flexing their muscles till
halftime as they took a 31-0 lead
into the break.
Quarterback Don Rich threw
two touchdowns for the Light-
ning in the first half as Marcus
Lewis and .Kelly Smith were on
the receiving end and he added
two more touchdowns on the
ground game.
To make matters worse, the
Crusaders found themselves
pinned deep in their own territo-
ry in the first quarter when Mike

Hanlon fell on a fumble as the
Crusaders quarterback coughed
up the football when he was be-
ing sacked on his own three-yard
Jacob Matlock made things
interesting as well with a 42-yard
field goal, and he even tossed his
first two-point conversion just be-
fore intermission to Mike Hall.
The only score for the Cru-
saders came in the fourth quar-
ter when Cortez Abrams dove in
from one yard out, and the two-
point conversion was good.

The Lightning will open their
home season in the LCFL on
June 27 when they host the Loui-
siana Storm at 7 p.m. at Pensaco-
la High School.
