Some like it hot, Navarre likes it spicy

Navarre likes its chili spicy, extra spicy if possible. That’s what you would’ve discovered if you were among the 75 locals armed with small Styrofoam cups and plastic spoons at the 21st annual Charity Chili Cook-Off hosted at Juana’s Pagodas Sunday, Oct. 19.

“There are several so far that have a lot of spicy flavor,” Nathan Kozakiewicz said, adding that he doesn’t have any regional preferences that some chili-lovers have. “I’m just looking for chili that is spicy with bold flavor.”

Locals hovered over 22 crockpots, each featuring a different texture, smell and taste. Though laughter and chatter filled the space during the two-hour tasting, the cook-off was not just for fun.

The 22 cooks were competing for first place in several categories including Bean There Farted That, Carnivore Amore, Fowl Chili, Double Burner and, the crown jewel, People’s Choice.

Raiders offense falters

Navarre could have captured their third straight District 2-6A crown with a victory over Choctaw last Friday night, but instead, they will have to wait until Halloween to learn their fate in the district race.

The Raiders need a victory by Fort Walton Beach over Choctaw on Oct. 31 to have a shot at the title. The most likely scenario is an Indian win over the 1-7 Vikings and a runner-up finish for the Raiders.

Navarre was their own worst enemy in the 25-15 loss to Choctaw at Joe Etheredge Stadium. The Raiders committed four turnovers on the night, three fumbles and an interception, and were guilty of 10 penalties for 95 yards.

Today is Thursday, Oct. 23, the 296th day of 2014

Today In HistoryToday’s Highlight in History:

On Oct. 23, 1944, the World War II Battle of Leyte (LAY’-tee) Gulf began, resulting in a major Allied victory against Japanese forces.

On this date:

In 1707, the first Parliament of Great Britain, created by the Acts of Union between England and Scotland, held its first meeting.

In 1864, forces led by Union Maj. Gen. Samuel R. Curtis repelled Confederate Maj. Gen. Sterling Price’s army in the Civil War Battle of Westport in Missouri.

In 1915, tens of thousands of women marched in New York City, demanding the right to vote.

In 1935, mobster Dutch Schultz, 34, was shot and mortally wounded with three other men during a gangland hit at the Palace Chophouse in Newark, New Jersey. (Schultz died the following day.)

In 1942, during World War II, Britain launched a major offensive against Axis forces at El Alamein (el ah-lah-MAYN’) in Egypt, resulting in an Allied victory.

In 1954, West Germany was invited to join the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, which it did the following year.

In 1956, a student-sparked revolt against Hungary’s Communist rule began; as the revolution spread, Soviet forces started entering the country, and the uprising was put down within weeks.

In 1972, the musical “Pippin” opened on Broadway.

In 1983, 241 U.S. service members, most of them Marines, were killed in a suicide truck-bombing at Beirut International Airport in Lebanon; a near-simultaneous attack on French forces killed 58 paratroopers.

In 1984, BBC Television reported on the famine in Ethiopia; the story, which shocked viewers, prompted rock star Bob Geldof to organize “Band Aid,” a group of celebrities who recorded the song “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” for charity.

In 1989, 23 people were killed in an explosion at Phillips Petroleum Co.’s chemical complex in Pasadena, Texas. In a case that inflamed racial tensions in Boston, Charles Stuart claimed that he and his pregnant wife, Carol, had been shot in their car by a black robber. (Carol Stuart and her prematurely delivered baby died; Charles Stuart later died, an apparent suicide, after he himself was implicated.)

In 2002, gunmen seized a crowded Moscow theater, taking hundreds hostage and threatening to kill their captives unless the Russian army pulled out of Chechnya. (Three days later, special forces stormed the theater; 130 captives died, along with all 40 gunmen.)

Ten years ago: Gunmen ambushed a group of U.S.-trained Iraqi soldiers east of Baghdad; around 50 of the unarmed soldiers were killed execution-style. A 6.8 magnitude earthquake in northern Japan killed 40 people. Brazil launched its first rocket into space, 14 months after an accident killed 21 space agency employees. The Boston Red Sox took Game 1 of the World Series, defeating the St. Louis Cardinals 11-9. Singer Ashlee Simpson, performing on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live,” was tripped up when the backing track for a different song featuring her voice began to play, prompting accusations of lip-synching. Opera singer Robert Merrill, 87, died in New Rochelle, New York.

Five years ago: President Barack Obama declared the swine flu outbreak a national emergency, giving his health chief the power to let hospitals move emergency rooms offsite to speed treatment and protect noninfected patients. Bank closings for 2009 surpassed 100, hitting 106 by day’s end. The NBA and the referees union agreed on a two-year contract, ending a lockout of more than a month. Character actor Lou Jacobi died in New York at age 95. Shiloh Pepin, 10, a girl who was born with fused legs, a rare condition often called “mermaid syndrome,” died in Portland, Maine.

One year ago: A defensive Obama administration acknowledged its problem-plagued health insurance website didn’t get enough testing before going live; it said technicians were deep into the job of fixing major computer snags, but provided no timetable. German Chancellor Angela Merkel called President Barack Obama to complain about allegations U.S. intelligence had targeted her cellphone. (The White House said it wasn’t monitoring and wouldn’t monitor Merkel’s communications, but conspicuously didn’t say they had never been monitored.) The Boston Red Sox took the World Series opener, beating the St. Louis Cardinals 8-1.

Today’s Birthdays: Baseball Hall of Famer and former U.S. Senator Jim Bunning, R-Ky., is 83. Movie director Philip Kaufman is 78. Soccer great Pele (pay-lay) is 74. Rhythm-and-blues singer Barbara Ann Hawkins (The Dixie Cups) is 71. ABC News investigative reporter Brian Ross is 66. Actor Michael Rupert is 63. Movie director Ang Lee is 60. Jazz singer Dianne Reeves is 58. Country singer Dwight Yoakam is 58. Community activist Martin Luther King III is 57. Movie director Sam Raimi is 55. Parodist “Weird Al” Yankovic is 55. Rock musician Robert Trujillo (Metallica) is 50. Christian/jazz singer David Thomas (Take 6) is 48. Rock musician Brian Nevin (Big Head Todd and the Monsters) is 48. Country singer-musician Junior Bryant is 46. Actor Jon Huertas is 45. Movie director Chris Weitz is 45. CNN medical reporter Dr. Sanjay Gupta is 45. Country singer Jimmy Wayne is 42. Actress Vivian Bang is 41. Rock musician Eric Bass (Shinedown) is 40. TV personality and host Cat Deeley is 38. Actor Ryan Reynolds is 38. Rock singer Matthew Shultz (Cage the Elephant) is 31. Rhythm-and-blues singer Miguel is 29. Actress Masiela Lusha (MAH’-see-ella loo-SHA’) is 29. Actress Emilia Clarke (TV: “Game of Thrones”) is 28. Actress Briana Evigan is 28. Actress Jessica Stroup is 28.

Thought for Thursday:

“Be content with what you are, and wish not change; nor dread your last day, nor long for it.”

- Marcus Aurelius, Roman emperor (CE 121-CE 180)

$1 beach lease fees likely unconstitutional

After receiving feedback from Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, Santa Rosa County Commissioners are expected to suspend an existing lease credit policy at their Oct. 23 meeting.

Last month Santa Rosa County Attorney Roy Andrews advised commissioners the existing policy and a plan to reduce beach lease fees to $1 per year might be unconstitutional, so they directed him seek an opinion from Bondi.

Although an Oct. 1 response says her office does not have authority to review and comment on local policymaking, it suggests an opinion which found two similar Santa Rosa Island Authority policies unconstitutional would be applicable.

A discussion of future actions related to beach lease fees is planned for the board’s Nov. 10 committee meeting.

Be aware of dog: Pit bulls claim October for awareness

October is pit bull awareness month. Depending on whom you ask however, what you should be aware of is changes.

“We need Pit Bull Awareness Month because the media has done a wonderful job of villainizing them,” said Carrie Turner, who runs

Phoenix Rising Rescue, the only licensed pit bull rescue organization in the area. “The facts people think they know about this breed are so inaccurate; pit bull awareness helps to understand the real nature of the breed.”

But what are the facts? Most people have heard that pit bulls rank high in dog-bite fatalities, which they do. However, advocates say pit bulls are a very popular breed, are most likely to draw “bad owners” and are often misidentified by media and bystander reports.

According to Turner, they are also more likely to be abused.

“I went to a breed-specific rescue because 90 percent of calls I received were about pit bulls being misused and abused,” Turner said, adding that she has several dogs shipped each month from Miami that have been abused including those used as yard dogs, guard dogs and fighting dogs.

‘Home rule’ discussed at incorporation event

The debate over incorporation continues to heat up, and with less than a month until the straw poll, Citizens to Incorporate Navarre held an informational event highlighting proposed benefits of becoming a city.

The wine and cheese social, held Oct. 16 at the beach house at Holley By the Sea, was open to HBTS residents and their guests.

The straw poll, which will appear on the Nov. 4 ballot, asks voters whether or not they want to continue the study of incorporation. The poll is not a referendum to incorporate; it is a way to gauge the community’s interest in moving forward.

One of the main reasons for incorporation, according to Citizens to Incorporate, is to keep taxpayer money in town.

“Money we’re already paying goes to Milton, not Navarre,” said Laurie Gallup, member of the Citizens to Incorporate Political Action Committee. “It keeps the millage and budget low for the rest of the county and Navarre is footing that bill.”
