As the mercury rises, keep your pets safe

Warm weather has arrived in Navarre, and with temperatures heating up outside, it’s important to remember that a hot car is no place for your four-legged friends.

“It’s just like with children,” Dr. Natalie Dyson of St. Francis Veterinary Center in Navarre said, reminding people of the dangers of leaving pets in the car during the spring and summer months. “The temperatures in a car, even with the windows cracked, can get to be well over 100 degrees.”

Dyson said pets can’t handle the heat because they don’t have sweat glands like humans, making it difficult to regulate their body temperatures.

Last year, Dyson treated two dogs who were left in their owner’s car.

A jury in Los Angeles recommended the death penalty for Charles Manson and three female followers for the 1969 Tate-La Bianca murders. (The sentences were later commuted.)

In 1973, the last United States combat troops left South Vietnam, ending America’s direct military involvement in the Vietnam War.

In 1974, eight Ohio National Guardsmen were indicted on federal charges stemming from the shooting deaths of four students at Kent State University. (The charges were later dismissed.) Chinese farmers digging a well discovered the Terracota Warriors, an “army” of sculpted soldiers dating from the third century B.C.

In 1992, Democratic presidential front-runner Bill Clinton acknowledged experimenting with marijuana “a time or two” while attending Oxford University, adding, “I didn’t inhale and I didn’t try it again.”

Carolyn Fowler

A Navarre woman was arrested March 27 on a charge of animal cruelty after police found one dead hamster and a number of animals living in squalor at a mobile home on the 8200 block of Lucena Street.

Police charged Carolyn Jane Fowler, 45, with a first-degree misdemeanor after they discovered nine cats, a bird and fish inside the home who “appeared to be in distress and frail,” according to the report.

The cats were so severely infested with fleas that deputies needed to be decontaminated following the arrest.

Fowler was released on $1,000 bond. The animals were transported to Santa Rosa County Animal Control for treatment. Animal Control advised there may be additional charges pending.

After a 70-day journey from the Florida Everglades, participants in the Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition March 19 paddled up to Fort Pickens, ending a 1,000-mile trek aimed to improve the state’s wildlife areas.

Krystin Olinski, spokeswoman for the event, said three participants hiked, biked and paddled the entire route to promote what organizers said is the need to protect and restore missing links in Florida’s “Wildlife Corridor” – connected greenspaces which allow wildlife to move and flourish, lessening threats by human population increases and resulting development.

Biologist Joe Guthrie, Mallory Dimmitt and photographer Carlton Ward Jr. participated in the journey, which began Jan. 10 in the Everglades.

The total cost will exceed $13,000, however Commissioner Rob Williamson said he plans to allocate $3,350 from the District 4 County Parks and Recreation budget to make up the difference.

“Normally a chamber would sponsor (fireworks),” Santa Rosa County Tourist Development Director Julie Morgan said, suggesting future displays be funded by the local business community or sponsors.

5 Things to Know in Florida for March 28

Your daily look at news, upcoming events and the stories that will be talked about today.

Florida House: Buy flags made in America

Cities, counties and state government will have to buy state and American flags made in the United States under a bill passed by the Florida House. The House on Friday voted 110-2 for the “All American Flag Act.” But the vote triggered a debate about whether the mandate itself is American. Some legislators said that forcing local and state government to buy flags made in the United States was “anti-capitalist” and a “restraint of trade.”

A-Rod cousin pleads guilty in Florida steroids case

A cousin of New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez has pleaded guilty to a federal drug charge, the last remaining defendant to do so in the probe into performance-enhancing drugs illegally provided to athletes through a South Florida clinic. Yuri Sucart admitted Friday in Miami federal court that he conspired with others to distribute human growth hormone to athletes, some of high school age. Seven others, including former Biogenesis of America clinic owner Anthony Bosch, have previously pleaded guilty and received sentences ranging from probation to four years in prison.

‘Teen Mom 3′ star’s ex charged with posting explicit images

The ex-boyfriend of a star of MTV’s “Teen Mom 3″ has been charged with posting sexually explicit images on social media sites. Shakiel Brown was charged Tuesday with felony video voyeurism and released on bond Thursday in Orlando. Authorities say he posted the images of 20-year-old Briana DeJesus after she refused to speak to him following their breakup. DeJesus told authorities she had no idea Brown had posted the videos on Instagram and Twitter. Orange County deputies say the videos were recorded during consensual sex.

Students would wear school uniforms under Florida House bill

The Florida House wants school districts to start requiring students to wear uniforms. The House on Friday passed a bill that would pay school districts extra money if they put in the requirement for students in elementary and middle schools. The bill passed by a 102-8 vote. Legislators backing the proposal say that uniforms could help improve school safety. Rep. John Tobia, a Melbourne Beach Republican, opposed the bill and argued that it would cost taxpayers and parents money.

Woman, infant die in Palm Bay house fire

Officials say a woman and a baby have died in a central Florida home. Palm Bay Fire-Rescue spokeswoman Yvonne Martinez says a Waste Management worker making his rounds Friday morning saw smoke coming from a home in Palm Bay and called 911. Firefighters found the woman and child inside the burning home. Both died at the scene. Their names and ages have not been released.

Today in History

Today is Saturday, March 28, the 87th day of 2015. There are 278 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History:

On March 28, 1979, America’s worst commercial nuclear accident occurred with a partial meltdown inside the Unit 2 reactor at the Three Mile Island plant near Middletown, Pennsylvania.

On this date:

In 1515, St. Teresa of Avila was born Teresa de Cepeda y Ahumada.

In 1834, the U.S. Senate voted to censure President Andrew Jackson for the removal of federal deposits from the Bank of the United States.

In 1854, during the Crimean War, Britain and France declared war on Russia.

In 1898, the Supreme Court, in United States v. Wong Kim Ark, ruled that a child born in the United States to Chinese immigrants was a U.S. citizen.

In 1930, the names of the Turkish cities of Constantinople and Angora were changed to Istanbul and Ankara.

In 1935, the notorious Nazi propaganda film “Triumph des Willens” (Triumph of the Will), directed by Leni Riefenstahl, premiered in Berlin with Adolf Hitler present.

In 1941, novelist and critic Virginia Woolf, 59, drowned herself near her home in Lewes, East Sussex, England.

In 1955, John Marshall Harlan II was sworn in as an associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court.

In 1965, an earthquake of magnitude 7.4 struck La Ligua, Chile, leaving about 400 people dead or missing, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

In 1969, the 34th president of the United States, Dwight D. Eisenhower, died in Washington D.C. at age 78.

In 1987, Maria von Trapp, whose life story inspired the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical “The Sound of Music,” died in Morrisville, Vermont, at age 82.

In 1990, President George H.W. Bush presented the Congressional Gold Medal to the widow of U.S. Olympic legend Jesse Owens.

Ten years ago: The Colorado Supreme Court threw out the death penalty in a rape-and-murder case because five of the trial jurors had consulted the Bible and quoted Scripture during deliberations. (The U.S. Supreme Court refused to consider reinstating the death sentence of Robert Harlan, who ended up being resentenced to life in prison for the murder of cocktail waitress Rhonda Maloney.) A major earthquake off the west coast of Indonesia killed some 1,300 people.

Five years ago: President Barack Obama secretly visited Afghanistan near the front lines of the increasingly bloody 8-year-old war. Actress-writer June Havoc, 97, whose childhood in vaudeville was immortalized in the musical “Gypsy,” died in Stamford, Connecticut. Jazz guitarist Herb Ellis died in Los Angeles at age 88.

One year ago: Russian President Vladimir Putin called President Barack Obama to discuss a solution to the crisis in Ukraine; the leaders agreed that top U.S. and Russian diplomats should work on the details. Yuzuru Hanyu of Japan became the first man in 12 years to win the Olympic and world figure skating titles in the same year. Jeremiah Denton, 89, a former U.S. senator who’d survived 7 1/2 years as a prisoner of war in North Vietnam, died in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Ray Rice married Janay Palmer a day after the Baltimore Ravens running back was indicted for aggravated assault for punching his fiancee in an Atlantic City, New Jersey, casino elevator. (Charges against Rice were dropped when he agreed to enter an intervention program.)

Today’s Birthdays: Former White House national security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski is 87. Author Mario Vargas Llosa is 79. Country musician Charlie McCoy is 74. Movie director Mike Newell is 73.
