The first employee of the new
Boys and Girls Club in Santa
Rosa County has stepped up to
the plate.
It was announced Thursday
that the Boys and Girls Club of the
Emerald Coast would be opening
their first facility in Santa Rosa
County at the East Milton Sports
Complex and gymnasium May 7.
It was also announced that
Ronna Rteuer would be the unit
director for the new facility.
'Iteuer, a Pensacola native, re-
cently moved to Milton from Be-

midji, Minn., where she
earned her bachelor's

Girls Club branch in East
Milton when she heard of
the opportunity.
"I read about the article
where Walmart awarded
the grant to the Boys and
Girls Club ... that was my
first interest in trying to
contact someone from the
Boys and Girls Club of the
Emerald Coast," Treuer

"I will work with operations,
programming and staffing,"
Treuer said. "I have been doing
my research and this area will
definitely benefit from this pro-
Treuer became interested in
the youth service field while do-
ing an internship at her local Boys
and Girls Club in Bemidji. Since
then, Treuer has acquired more
than six years of experience with
Boys and Girls Club programs.
Treuer has also had years of
experience dealing with children
and child behavior.

sity. I
She is currently tran-
sitioning from her other B
job with the Boys and
Girls Club in Minnesota. RONI
"I started working TREU
with the Boys and Girls
Club when I got out of college and
it was something I stuck with,"
Treuer said.
Despite her years up north en-
joying the colder weather, Treuer
jumped on the opportunity to
head the Santa Rosa Boys and

Her interest paid off. After
working back and forth with the
BGCEC, she became the facility's
unit director, who will oversee all
of the activity that happens at that
particular location.

A Pace man remains in critical condition
after he was found injured early Wednesday
morning in Pace near the former Santa Rosa
Tax Collector's office.
According to Sgt. Scott Haines, with the Santa
Rosa County Sheriff's Office, 58-year-old Mark
Alfr~ed was found in the parking lot of Advanced
Tire and Auto Center just after 7 a.m.
Alfr~ed was transported to Sacred Heart Hos-
pital, where he remains in critical condition.
Haines said the investigation started as an
aggravated battery, but new information has
led investigators to think that Alfred's injuries
might have been accidental and caused by in-
At this time, both theories are being inves-
tigated according to Haines, as police are still
unable to speak with Alfr~ed in his current condi-
Haines reported that investigators discov-
ered Alfr~ed was at Back Alley Sports Grill on
U.S. 90 from 6-7 p.m. when he was asked to
leave because of his actions and comments to-
ward employees and other patrons.
Investigators learned that Alfred was later
seen at the CVS Pharmacy on the corner of
Floridatown Road and U.S. 90, just east of the
grill, about 8 p.m. purchasing beer.
According to Haines, he was alone at that
Later in the evening, a patron at the Sonic,
which is across the street from where Alfred
was found Wednesday morning, saw the victim
and said he appeared to be heavily intoxicated.

On Tuesday evening, a Milton
man was fatally injured as he was
riding his bike on Stewart Street
near the Santa Rosa County School
Bus Garage on Firehouse Road.
Willie Young, 74, of Milton, was

riding his bike southbound on
Highway 87 in the middle of the
inside lane with no lights when he
was struck by a truck driven by
Mary Edwards, 48 of Milton, at 8:05
According to a Florida High-
way Patrol press release, Edwards
was unable to see the bike ridden

by Young in time to avoid the ac-
Young was taken to Santa Rosa
Medical Center by Lifeguard Am-
bulance where he was pronounced
dead at 8:35 p.m.
In the past four months, Milton
officers have issued two verbal
warnings to those riding bikes con-

cerning issues such as not being
properly lit and other safety con-
"WYhen an officer sees some-
thing, they get out and say some-
thing to the bike rider," said Capt.
Tony Tindell with the Milton Police
Department. "A majority of our
main roads in Milton have side-

walks and at night, I would rather
them ride on the sidewalk where it
is safer than on the street.
"Outside the city there are not
that many sidewalks and if there is
a bike lane it still could be quite dif-
ficult to see."
Charges are pending the homi-
cide investigation.

Hello this is Tim. They
have a Mardi Gras parade
in Mobile and they trash the

from a trash can and they
throw their trash on the

Hi, this is Joyce from
Milton. I would like
to address this to the
parents of the kids I saw
at Carpenter's Park who
were chasing the ducks
and wild animals. I was at
Carpenter's Park Sunday
Feb. 19 from 11:30 a.m. to
1:30 p.m. for a birthday
party at a pavilion. I sat and
watched four, five, six and
seven children at the park
chase the ducks up and
down the parking lot. One
kid caught a duck and the
adults laughed their heads
off. They captured the
ducks, circled the ducks and
chased the ducks until they
flew into the river. Please
parents, teach your children
it is not funny to chase
animals. Thank you.

This call is to comment
on the Press Gazette Feb.
18 and some guy named
Salvatorie Barbones,
who wrote about the real
Social Security crisis.
He is so full of bull it is .
hard to believe. The main
thing is the bottom of the
second paragraph. Social
Security won't cost the
government for 27 years
and after which it will need
a modest subsidy. That's not
a crisis. That is the big lie
government has put out to
you for years for this reason.
Social Security is now
bankrupt today and it will be
bankrupt tomorrow. About
75 million people started
on Social Security in 2008'
the baby boomers. Social
ecurit as ino k n oTe
is no Social Security trust

debt and you can check

Santa Rosa's Press Gazette|I A3

By Bj|| Goniblin
Tuesday afternoon the
Santa Rosa County Sheriff 's
Office issued press release
regarding a Milton resident
who reportedly damaged a
cruiser with his teeth,
According to Sgt. Scott
Haines, Santa Rosa County
Sheriff's Office deputies re-
sponded to the 6600 block
of Nichols Drive, Milton, in
reference to a white male
knocking on resident's
doors and asking them to
call 911 around 7:45 p.m.
back on Feb. 11.
The subject, who was
identified by Haines as Eric
Scott, 47, was carrying a
flashlight and telling people
that he needed medical as-
Scott who lives on
Camelot Road in Milton is
facing possible charges of
criminal mischief and re-
si sting an officer without
According to Haines,
when deputies arrived, they

located the subject, who be-
gan to walk away from the
deputies when they tried to
approach him.
Scott then threw his
flashlight at a mailbox and
became very agitated. Scott
began to curse the deputies
and asked them to kill him.
Scott began screaming at
the deputies, telling them
multiple times to shoot him.
According to Haines,
deputies believed that Scott
was under the influence of
an unknown narcotic due
to his irrational behavior.
Scott was experiencing
erratic behavior, halluci-
nations, confusion, loss of
direction, and aggression
towards law enforcement.
All of these behaviors are
consistent with subjects
that are under the influ-
ence of "bath salts."
Scott reportedly also
had several self-inflicted in-
juries to his hands and had
blood coming from his nose.
Because of his aggres-
sion, Scott was detained in
handcuffs and EMS was

requested to respond, be-
cause of the fact that depu-
ties didn't know what he
had ingested. While Scott
was leaning over the hood
of the patrol car, Scott be-
gan to apply and scrape his
front teeth rapidly across
the paint, causing the paint
to be stripped off to the bare
According to Haines,
deputies had to restrain his
head by holding his forehead
to keep him from damaging
the patrol car any further.
Scott was transported by
EMS to a local hospital for
Haines went on to state
in the press release that
while at the hospital, Scott
continued to ask law en-
forcement to "kill him" and
asked hospital staff to put a
plastic bag over his head to
"kill him."
The patrol vehicle was
taken to a local body shop
and it is reported that Scott's
teeth caused damage to the
vehicle estimated at close to

A quick gavel strike by
Santa Rosa County com-
mission chairman Jim
Williamson sealed a tem-
porary contract with the
new TEAM Santa Rosa
Economic Development
That gavel strike was
made as newly appoint-
ed transition committee
board member for TEAM
Santa Rosa, Jerry Couey
was walking up to the podi-

um at the Thursday county
commission meeting to
ask for an extended con-
tract time for TEAM.
Williamson and the rest
of the board motioned to
fund TEAM Santa Rosa
and its remaining em-
ployees through April 30,
and from then, would put
TEAM on a month-to-
month contract with the
county. That would mean
the county would have to
vote to extend TEAM's
paid contract every month
as long as the county feels
TEAM was doing a good

The former executive
director for TEAM, Cindy
Anderson and Ildi Hos-
man, the former TEAM
public affairs director
have resigned from TEAM
leaving Director Shannon
Ogletree and TEAM Santa
Rosa Business Director
Tina Stewart.
Commissioners voted
to have the two keep their
pay as they work to re-
structure TEAM.
"I still feel we need to
separate the employees
from the organization,"

Couey said to commis-
sioners. "We are on a time
schedule here."
But Couey said he want-
ed that time schedule ex-
tended from 30 days to 90
days so the county would
not have to vote every
month to extend TEAM's
"I plea that you guys
consider resetting the new
board, and on April 1, start
with a new organization,"
Couey said. "I don't think 30
days is reasonable enough
for these employees.
"Let's change it and

move forward."
Couey's motion was too
late. The county now will
have to wait another month
before considering extend-
ing the economic develop-
ment council's contract
period from 30 days to 90
like Couey suggested.
County commissioner
Bob Cole who is in charge
of the economic develop-
ment committee at the
county board meetings
said that he didn't just
want to have TEAM "drop
dead" as the county works
to reconstruct the econom-

ic development council.
"This will do a lot to
clear the minds of a lot of
folks," Cole said. "We need
to keep Shannon and Tina
on the board to make sure
TEAM doesn't drop dead."
The 30-day rolling con-
tract would give TEAM
Santa Rosa $35,000 month
to cover costs of operating
the office and the remain-
ing two salaries. The un-
used salaries would set in
the economic development
fund since they would not
be paid to employees who
have left the office.

Based on what is being called a "de-
cline" in the need for residential services
for delinquent and at-risk youth, Camp E-
Ma-Chamee, a camp that services at-risk
children, shut its doors last Friday.
According to a press release issued by
Eckerd Youth Services, the company that
ran the camp in Milton, the need for in-
home and community program settings
for at-risk children has been growing, and
has been slowly cutting off the need for the
camp for quite some time.
The camp has been in the area for over
30 years and isn't the only outdoor thera-
peutic camp program that Eckerd has
seen a decline in attendance at. Camp E-
Ma-Chamee is the first of perhaps many
that will close according to the press re-
"Low census and continued staff re-
cruitment difficulties in this uncertain
climate where 4,800 residential beds have

been closed by the Florida Department of
Juvenile Justice (DJJ) since 2005 made
the closing of E-Ma-Chamee inevitable,"
said April Putzulu Director of Marketing
and Communications for Eckerd.
The camp earned a Commendable
Quality Rating by the Department of Juve-
nile Justice, but Putzulu said that keeping
up that image, while struggling to main-
tain staff and attendees, would ultimately
be the downfall of the camp.
When the facility learned of its clos-
ing, Eckerd started working with the De-
partment of Juvenile Justice to place the
children that attend the camp into nearby
camps or programs so they would not be
misplaced. Even while the camp is cutting
off its services at the campus, Putzulu said
they would continue to provide other ser-
vices to people in the region,
"Eckerd will continue to operate its
intensive in-home Brief Strategic Fam-
ily Therapy service and also Outpatient
Counseling services in the Pensacola
area," Putzulu said.

selections, we will also
talk about the music of
the late Whitney Houston
and Don Cornelius."
Cornelius did a lot
for soul music with his
show Soul 'Itain, which he
hosted from 1971 to 1993.
Many of the activities
sponsored by the AACC
date back to when the
club was founded by
Jeffery Mills in 1990.
This club not only
mentors students at W.H.
Rhodes Elementary, but
also holds fundraisers
to help families
during Christmas and
Thanksgiving, and takes
trips to educate them
about life outside of
One of those annual
trips is to Florida A&M
University, where Mills
teaches today.
Hyman talks and
teaches about Black
History and culture, but
she does not agree with
the idea of a whole month
"I don't believe
we should celebrate
Black History Month
in February because
Black History is a part
of American History,"
Hyman said. "I think just
a one month celebration
should be done away with
and celebrate American
History all year."
Hyman said she is also

confused when students
ask if they have to be
black to be a member of
the organization at Milton
High School.
"We study the African-
American Culture,"
Hyman said. "We are an
open club and probably
one of the most diverse in
Milton High School.
"But when someone
asks me if they have to
be black to be in the club,
I ask them if they have
to be French to be in the
French Club or Hispanic
or Latin American to be
in the Spanish Club."
Hyman will tell you the
key word for the AACC is
"The world is not black
and white," Hyman said.
"We are learning and
educating students about
a culture.
"The world is made
up of other races and
ethnicities and we need
to respect them all. We
are not pro-black, but pro-
human race."
Besides going to
places like FAMU,
club members have
recently visited the
Mobile International
Festival, Birmingham
and Montgomery, to see
the 16th Street Baptist
Church, the Rosa Parks
Museum, the Civil Rights
Museum and other
historic locations.

Today, the AACC has
about 80 members, and
Hyman still teaches
a lesson she learned
while attending FAMU,
which is one of the
Historically Black College
Universities in America.
"I love to give back to
the students as much as
I can," Hyman said. "I
am only one person, but
my joy and payment for
my efforts is seeing the
students perform well as
part of the Step Team or
listen and do well on one
of our projects.
"The key is if it needs
to be done, then do it."
The AACC and its Step
Team started preforming
at area churches and
now competes at Disney
World and various
competitions in Alabama
and Mississippi.
"These Step Teams are
a thing of pride in some
communities, like a little
league team," Hyman
said. "They are not as
popular here as they are
in other areas, but they
are part of our culture."
Other high schools in
the area that had or have
a Step Team include Pace,
Navarre, Pine Forest and
Choctaw High School.
The Legends of Soul
events will be from 1:25-
2:20 p.m. and 2:25-3:15

Rogers, 41, of Pensacola,
has been indicted by a fed-
eral grand jury in connec-
tion with the fire that de-
stroyed the American Fam-
ily Planning Clinic on Jan. 1,
2012, in Pensacola.
The two-count indict-
ment charges Rogers with
arson and damaging a
reproductive health facil-
ity. The indictment was
announced Thursday by
Pamela C. Marsh, U.S. At-
torney for the Northern
District of Florida.

Rogers remains in fed-
eral custody following his
arrest on Jan. 5.
If convicted at trial, the
defendant faces a sentence
of five to 20 years in prison
for the arson count and up
to one year in prison for
damaging a reproductive
health clinic.
An indictment is merely
an allegation by a grand
jury that a defendant has
committed a violation of
federal criminal law and is
not evidence of guilt. All de-
fendants are presumed in-
nocent and are entitled to a
fair trial, during which it will

be the government's bur-
den to prove guilt beyond a
reasonable doubt in a court
of law.
The indictment of Rog-
ers is a result of the inves-
tigative work of the Bureau
of Alcohol, Tobacco, and
Firearms, the Pensacola
Police Department, the
State Fire Marshal's Office
and the Federal Bureau of
Investigation. The case is
being prosecuted by Assis-
tant United States Attorney
Edwin Knight and Chiraag
Bains, Wtial Attorney with
the Department of Justice's
Civil Rights Division.

(humuckla Springs boat ramp receives permitting


A8 I Santa Rosa's Press Gazette


saturday, February 25, 2012

Special to the Press Gazette

The Chumuckla Springs Boat
Ramp has received the final permit
from the U.S. Army Corps of Engi-
neers, enabling the project to begin
The new boat ramp will be owned
by the county and will be open year-
round and will replace the current
Sandy Landing Boat Ramp which is
privately owned but maintained by
the county and open to the public
through a license agreement.
Land clearing for the Chumuck-
la Springs Boat Ramp on Mineral
Springs Lake is expected to begin
the first week of March.
This will be large and challeng-
ing project as it will require more
than 9 acres of clearing and grub-
bing, one-half mile of new paved
road construction, more than one-
half mile of paved ditches, four
stormwater retention ponds, more

than 7,000 square yards of compact-
ed rock parking and driving areas
and extensive erosion controls.
The project construction time
will be weather driven and will take
several months depending on rain
and potential flooding of the river
and the lake.
In addition to being open year-
round, the Mineral Springs location
will have several advantages over
the Sandy Landing Boat Ramp in-
cluding more favorable currents
for launching or loading small fish-
ing boats and the ability to launch
boats during low river tides.
Features of the Chumuckla
Springs Boat Ramp will include
a gravel parking area with park-
ing for 30 trucks with trailers and
20 standard parking spaces and a
ramp which will allow the launch-
ing of two boats side by side with
appropriate loading and staging

Special to the Press Gazette
In February 1992, a
group of 25 hikers met on
a rainy day to hike a 7-mile
section of the Jackson Red
Ground Trail in the Black-
water River State Forest.
This troop of hardy souls,
led by Ginger Moore,
worked together to form a
new chapter of the Florida
Trail Association,
Now known as the West-
ern Gate Chapter, its 150-
plus members will be cel-
ebrating the chapter's 20th
anniversary this month by
replicating that first hike.
On Sunday, members will
meet in Blackwater River
State Forest at the Red
Rock/Juniper Creek trail-
head to hike 7 miles to Old
Martin Road where a short
celebration program will
be provided along with re-
freshments. The public is
invited to participate.
"We are thrilled to be
celebrating our 20th an-
niversary, and our many
accomplishments dur-
ing this time," said Helen
Wigersma, chairwoman of
Western Gate Chapter. "In
particular, we are delighted
to have this opportunity to
introduce area residents

There are 19 active FTA
chapters, organized along
county lines. The West-
ern Gate Chapter initially
focused on trails in four
counties: Escambia, Santa
Rosa, Okaloosa and Wal-
ton. As the Chapter grew,
members in Okaloosa and
Walton Counties eventu-
ally formed a sub-chapter
now known as the Choc-
tawhatchee Chapter, which
gained full Chapter status
six years ago.
Although the Western
Gate Chapter focuses on
hiking and maintaining
about 200 miles of trail
throughout Blackwater
River State Forest and
Park as well as local sec-
tions of the Florida Nation-
al Scenic Trail, our mem-
bers encourage Florida
residents and visitors to
take advantage of the free
fitness benefits and scenic
beauty offered by an out-
standing system of trails.
There are more than 2,500
miles of dedicated hiking
trails and several thousand
more miles of multi-use,
recreational trails that pro-
mote healthier lifestyles as
well as nature-based tour-
ism and economic benefits
for the state.

to one of the many beauti-
ful trails in our two-county
region. Hiking in the woods
is a relaxing, joyful experi-
ence which promotes good
health and fitness."
The Florida Trail As-

sociation has more than
5,000 members throughout
the state. Its purpose is to
develop, maintain, protect
and promote this network
of hiking trails throughout
the state, including the

unique Florida National
Scenic Trail, a 1,300-mile
trail that extends from
Fort Pickens in the Gulf
Islands National Seashore
to Big Cypress National
Preserve. Together with its

partners, the FTA provides
opportunities for the public
to hike, engage in outdoor
recreation, participate in
environmental education
and contribute to meaning-
ful volunteer work.

be a fighter pilot, but he's
grounded if he doesn't
have enough math to
understand physics,
aerodynamics and

that helps people to

U.S. youngsters stand in
Drs. Eric Hanushek
and Paul Peterson, senior
fellows at the Hoover
Institution, looked at
the performance of our

wituntg r conep r
Newsweek article, "Why
Can't American Students
Compete?" (Aug. 28, 2011),
reprinted under the title
"Math Matters" in the
Hoover Digest (2012). In
the latest international
tests administered by
the Organisation for
Economic Co-operation
and Development, only 32
percent of U.S. students
ranked proficient in math
- coming in between
Portugal and Italy but
far behind South Korea,
Finland, Canada and the
Netherlands. U.S. students
couldn't hold a finger to
the 75 percent of Shanghai
students who tested
What about our
brightest? It turns out
that only 7 percent of U.S.
students perform at the
advanced level in math.
Forty-five percent of the
students in Shanghai
are advanced in math,
compared with 20 percent
in South Korea and
Switzerland and 15 percent
of students in Japan,
Belgium, Finland, the
Netherlands, New Zealand
and Canada.
Hanushek and Peterson
find one bright spot among
our young people. That's
Asian-American students,
52 percent of whom
perform at the proficient
level or higher. Among
white students, only 42
percent perform math
at a proficient level. The
math performance of black
and Hispanic students
is a disaster, with only 11

performing math at
the proficient level

Among advanced degrees
in engineering awarded
at U.S. universities during
the 2007-08 academic

whites; 2 percent went to

Hispanics; and 61 percent
went to foreigners. Of
the advanced degrees in
mathematics, 40 percent
went to whites; 2 percent
went to blacks; 5 percent
went to Hispanics; and 50
percent went to foreigners.
For advanced degrees
in education, 65 percent
went to whites; 17 percent
went to blacks; 5 percent
went to Hispanics; and 8
percent went to foreigners.
The pattern is apparent.

percentage of Americans

In a New York Times
article "Do We Need
Foreign Technology
Workers?" (April 8, 2009)
- Dr. Vivek Wadhwa
of the Pratt School of
Engineering at Duke
University said "that 47
percent of all U.S. science
and engineering workers
with doctorates are
immigrants as were 67
percent of the additions
to the U.S. science and
engineering work force
between 1995 to 2006.
And roughly 60 percent
of engineeringPh.D.
students and 40 percent
of master's students are
foreign nationals."
American mathematic
proficiency levels leave a
lot to be desired if we're to
maintain competitiveness.
For blacks and Hispanics,
it's a tragedy with little
prospect for change, but
the solution is not rocket
science. During my tenure
as a member of Temple
University's faculty in
the 1970s, I tutored black
students in math. When
they complained that math
was too difficult, I told
them that if they spent as
much time practicing math
as they did practicing jump
shots, they'd be just as
good at math as they were
at basketball. The same
message of hard work
and discipline applies to
all students, but someone
must demand it,

Bill, I am not a
parent. At least I hope
I'm not. And even I know
what Tommy Jordan
did to his daughter's
computer was totally
I remember when
that video first went
viral. You know how
I remember? I was
sitting there with a bowl
of popcorn in my lap,
clapping my hands and
cheering this man on.
You know how
ignorant people sound
when I see them post
stuff on Facebook like:
*"My parents are
ignorant, they didn't
get me an iPad for
*"I hate my life. My
parents grounded me for
sneaking out last night."
*"My parents are
jerksn Thley don't gve

cleaning my room."
Here's a suggestion
for parents who see this
on their child's Facebook
wall: throw them outside
until they are able to get
a job and pay rent and
the electric bill they run
up sitting at home all
day playing video games
and watching television.
I was lucky enough
to not have any luxuries
growing up, and to have
a mother who constantly
told me that if I wanted
something, I had to work
for it. So, you know what
I did? When I turned 13
years old and I asked my
mother for a new pair of
pants, and she told me to
get a job.
I started mowing
I only made $7 a
week, but over time, I
started making more.
And I started making
more because I was
actually doing a good
job. I was learning
responsibility and how to
do things for others.

There is a huge
difference between this
girl and me, Bill. She
has a well-off household.
She has a maid. She
has everything she ever
I didn't even have a
computer until I was in
high school.
No video games.
No cable television.
Just VHS (yes, I'm
that old). The most
entertainment I ever got
was when the Simpsons
came on every Sunday
Today, children have
Xbox's, Playstation 3's
and, when their parents
give one to them,they
don't even have the
dignity to thank them.
Here's a clue to all
you parents out there
that have children giving
y wat fo because

lifestyle: get out the belt.
Believe me, after a
few soap bars in the
mouth and a much-
deserved whack with a
leather strap, I was well
on my way to becoming
a better person.
Of course, I would be
careful to do that to your
child, Bill. Nowadays,
children can get their
parents arrested for just
about anything.
When my mother
did it, she didn't call it
child abuse, she called it
A gun to someone's
personal belongings in
an empty field is not too
far when your child talks
about you as their worst
enemy. I'm sure Jordan
paid for his child's
computer anyway, and
the child deserves to
have every other thing
he ever bought for her
taken away ... which
means she'll be living
outside and scrounging
for berries until she
learns how to grow up.

Mat, you tell me
about how rude, crude,
crass and socially
unacceptable I am. Then
you have the nerve to
endorse this father and
how he "corrected" his
I am not going to deny
Tommy Jordan's right to
shoot the laptop, but let's
look at an example of
how he did it.
Yes, he was upset
about what his daughter,
Hannah, had said in
a post on Facebook,
(today's top social media
She had an issue and,
instead of discussing it
with her parents, she
posted it for all the world
to see. The only way dad
found out about it was by
updating his daughter's

lap an was mad.
He should have been.
But by video taping his
tirade and the ultimate
destruction of his
daughter's laptop (via
nine shots into
the defenseless
computer), he ended up
acting just as bad as his
While some are
singing his praises and
applauding his actions,
the fact is, he didn't
teach her a true lesson.
He just found a way to
embarrass his daughter
in front of millions of
Not only has his little
video gone viral with
well over a million hits, it
has found air time on
just about every news
What is he really
teaching his daughter
with this video and the
subsequent celebrity?
Take a gun and
destroy something on
video tape and you, too,
can be a star.
He could have proven

his point much better
and still gotten to shoot
her laptop by walking her
outside and telling her, "I
told you if your attitude
and behavior didn't
change I would shoot
your laptop."
Better yet, he could
have taken the laptop,
destroyed it, and told
her to get a new one she
would have to get a job
and pay for it.
If someone had not
told me the rest of the
story behind this video
clip I would have thought
I was watching some
redneck show hosted by
the likes of Bill Engvall
or Larry the Cable Guy.
I have learned a lot
since becoming a father
and you don't earn
respect by embarrassing
your cild no matter
If you say you are
going to do something,
do it.
You don't need to
broadcast it to the entire
If you like what
Tommy Jordan did, what
will be the next thing
done to garner support?
A videotaped beating
of a child?
Video of blowing up a
teen's car because they
got a ticket?
I am sure there are
some out-of-work suicide
bombers looking for a
quick job who would love
for someone to catch it
on video.
Jordan, you might
have scored a slam
dunk in public opinion,
but you register a big
raspberry when it comes
to teaching your child a
true lesson.
Maybe you need to
grow up like you want
your daughter to do.
Sounds like someone
needs to take your guns

Rick Kriseman (D-St.
Petersburg) who was
ordered by a judge to give
a deposition related to an
online travel bill. While
Representative Kriseman
and I were on opposite
sides of the online travel
bill, I believe he was
correct in refusing to sit
for what he accurately
called an "intrusive
deposition" that breached
the separation of powers
Now, however,
House Bill 7123 has
become entangled in the
debate on redistricting.
Opponents have argued
that the bill, if enacted,
would be used improperly
as a shield against
exploring questions of
legislative intent relative
to the redistricting plans
passed by the House and
The Senate has good
reason to be proud of the
open, transparent, and

inclusive process which
Chairman Weatherford
and I and our committees
followed in developing
redistricting plans that
earned the bi-partisan
support of a majority of
Democrats and almost
all Republicans in the
Nonetheless, I always
expected lawsuits to
be filed by those whose
political intentions
weren't satisfied by the
maps the Legislature
produced. Indeed,
numerous times during
Our 26 public hearings
across the state our
committees were puton
notice that there would
be lawsuits by dissatisfied
partisans no matter how
the lines were drawn.
My view is there
is already sufficient
and substantial legal
protection against
"intrusive deposition"
of legislators in matters

of public policy. No
additional legislation
is needed and to
attempt to enact a bill
at this time allows it
to be misconstrued by
redistricting opponents.
Consequently, if the
language currently in
House Bill 7123 were
to be considered in the
Senate, I would vote
against the bill.
Florida's newly
enacted congressional
and legislative districts
have been subjected to
prolonged public scrutiny
like never before. They
likely will be subject to
more litigation than ever
As Chairman of the
Senate Reapportionment
Committee, I do not
want to chance even
an appearance that the
Legislature is not fully
willing and able to explain
our plans to any court of
competent jurisdiction.

Open season for baseball

I Submitted photo

By Bj|| Gamblin
Baseball season has
opened and Milton got off to
a fast start with a 3-2 win in
Panama City.
The Panthers used a
four-inning performance
from Paul Young to defeat
the Arnold High Marlins on
Young gave up two hits
and struck out five while al-
lowing one earned run.
The Panthers jumped

out to an early 1-0 lead and
by the fifth inning held a 3-1
The Marlins tacked on
a late run, but it wasn't
'lt~oy Smith, Jordan Mar-
tin, and Blake Coleman each
drove home a run and fin-
ished with one hit each.
In softball action on
Wednesday it was the Lady
Panthers of Milton handing
Tate a 3-0 loss at home.
The Lady Panthers
scored one run in the

bottom of the first at Kay
White Field and that would
be all they needed as Katie
Worley allowed only one hit
while striking out 10.
Milton added two more
runs in the bottom of the
Kristen Vaughn finished
the game with a double and
two RBIs.
Jay notched its first win of
the season over Central 14-5.
The Lady Royals jumped
out to a 10-0 lead by the end
of the third inning before the

Lady Jags could get on the
Dana Blackman pitched
seven innings for the win
and scattered eight hits with
five strike outs, while Cen-
tral's Alina Morrow pitched
four innings for Central in
the loss allowing 12 hits and
striking out one.
In the fourth and fifth in-
nings Central scored five
runs with Sarah Forsythe
finish the game going 2-for-2
with two runs scored.
Olivia Wright led Jay at

the plate with a grand slam,
two doubles, and five RBI's
as she went 3-for-5 at the
Camile Driver, Becca Cal-
loway and Samantha Stead-
ham all finished the game
with two hits.
At Pace 'Iesday, Escam-
bia defeated the Lady Patri-
ots 4-1.
Former Pace pitcher Vic-
toria East worked seven in-
nings and allowed four hits
while striking out eight in the

East and Ashley Peters
homered for the Lady Ga-
Escambia got on the
scoreboard first in the game
in the fifth inning with two
runs, while Pace's only run
came in the bottom of the
Jordan Wheelius, Mallory
Carpenter, Taylor Wade and
Nikki Cody finished with one
hit each.
Taylor Wade struck out
eight, but gave up eight hits
in the loss.

we should have fouled him and
force him to hit the free throws.
"But it was a clutch shot
as he was floating left and he
knocked it down with a hand in
his face."
In the extra period Pine
Forest took advantage of mak-
ing just a couple of more fr~ee-
throws down the stretch and
managing to for the Panthers to
miss a couple of shots to secure
the win.
"I couldn't be more proud
of this team and how hard they
work," Hullett said. "It takes
a special person to fight back
from the season we had last
year and I would have loved to
have won the game, especially
for our seniors Haylen (Wash-
ington) and Ryan (Novacic)."
Milton took an early lead in
the first quarter 4-3 until David
Hawkins nailed a three-pointer
to put the Eagles up 6-4.
The Panthers would take
one more lead in the first half at
11-10 when David Tober drove
the baseline for a basket to cap
a 5-0 Milton run.
Despite 21 points from
Washington and 16 from Isaiah
Jones the Panthers would not
lead the game again until the
fourth quarter.
"I wanted this game so bad,"
Washington said following the
game. "It was like a passion
burning inside, and I didn't
want this game to end.
"This is a special team and
we play for each other instead
of worrying about individual
things. We have always played
basketball together and are
more like brothers."
Ironically Hullett lost to a
person he idolized as a player

PENSACOLA It looked like
the Milton Panthers were going
to avenge one of their four pre-
vious losses 'Iesday night at
Pine Forest High School when
they faced the Eagles in Re-
gion 1-6A Semi-Finals, but fate
wasn't on Milton's side.
When the gym fell silent the
Eagles came out victorious 71-
67 in overtime to advance on in
the basketball tourney.
After falling behind by 11
points at one juncture of the
third quarter, the Panthers
(25-5) roared back to take the
lead, 43-42, on a Bobby Green
jumper with 5:40 remaining in
the game.
The Panthers would extend
that lead to as many as five
points on two occasions, but

"I learned a lot about bas-
ketball from (Brad Grant) at a
young age," Hullett said. "He
use to dunk left and right on me
and taught me to be tough at a
young age.
"I remember going to game
to watch him play at Milton
when I was in sixth, seventh
and eighth grade."
While Hullett remembered
those teams he watched in his
youth, he was especially proud
of his squad to rebounded from
a 10-15 record last year.
"These guys did a great
job and played their tails off,"
Hullett said. "It took a special
