TUESDAY


Compass Lake's future in question


BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
FLORIDAN STAFF WRITER

The Jackson County
Commission has scheduled a
public hearing for 9:15 a.m. on
Jan. 11 to consider whether to
change the special taxing struc-
ture set up decades ago for the
Compass Lake in the Hills subdi-
vision.


The county hired a law firm
last year to review the current
Municipal Services Taxing Unit
for the subdivision. Under the
current taxing structure, property
owners are assessed a flat $135
per year fee to take care of spe-
cial expenses, such as fire protec-
tion.
The county now may abandon
the MSTU in favor of a


Municipal Services Benefit Unit.
Commissioners first voted in
December 2010 to explore that
option and, at the same meeting,
set the date for a public hearing
about it.
The review of the current
MSTU was ordered after years of
controversy over what the tax
revenues should be used for.
Issues surrounding the ownership


and use of amenities have been a
point of controversy and, as a
result, divisions have arisen over
assessment funds being spent on
those amenities.
So far, only the law firm and
the individual commissioners
know what the review has
revealed; a written report was not
provided when the public hearing
on the changes was proposed.


Instead, a representative of the
reviewing law firm spoke to each
commissioner individually about
the results. No commissioner at
the December -meeting volun-
teered to disclose what they had
been told:

Jury selection begins for Gov.-elect


Jackson County tobacco suit Scott begins



inaugural



celebration


Plaintiff Emmon Smith, left, listens as his attorney, Maria Rubio, talks to potential jurors in a tobacco lawsuit set
to begin later this week before Circuit Judge Hentz McClellan. Deborah Buckhalter/Floridan


BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
FLORIDAN STAFF WRITER
Jury selection began
Monday in a tobacco civil
suit, set.to commence later
this week in Jackson
County.
Cottondale resident
Emmon Smith is suing the
R.J. Reynolds Tobacco
Company.
Smith, a minister born in
1931, was a smoker begin-
ning in the 1940s. He
developed lung cancer and
lost a lung some time ago.
His lead attorney, Maria
Rubio, told potential jurors
he is suing the tobacco
company "for his addiction
and consequences." Former
state Rep. Robert Trammel
is one of the lawyers assist-


ing Rubio in Smith's case.
Smith's team and
lawyers for R.J. Reynolds
began assembling a panel
early Monday before
Circuit Judge Hentz
McClellan in Marianna.
The civil trial is expected
to begin the day after the
jury is seated.
That may take some
time; jurors must be able to
commit for several weeks.
The trial is expected to last
about a month.
Finding enough people
who don't already have
strong, unshakable opin-
ions on the matter may also
prove to be a challenge.
The potential jurors were
questioned about every-
thing from their jobs to
their hobbies, as well as


their opinions about smok-
ers filing lawsuits against
tobacco companies.
In at least one batch of
candidate jurors, the major-
ity indicated they doubted
smokers were justified in
bringing such cases. Some
indicated they thought
smokers have fair notice of
the potential health risks
because of the package
warnings that come with
tobacco products.
One juror likened tobac-
co lawsuits to the case in
which a customer sued a
fast food chain because the
customer suffered burns
after spilling the hot coffee
they'd ordered from the
restaurant. The juror said
he didn't look favorably on
such suits. Another juror
likened smokers to some-
one who might encounter a
stop sign and keep going.
The lawsuit will likely


explore when warning
labels were mandated, and
when Smith started smok-
ing.
One juror asked Rubio
whether Smith was still
smoking. McClellan
refused to let the lawyer
answer, saying it was a
matter that would be
addressed at trial. Several
candidates said they'd lost
loved ones who smoked to
cancer. Some also said they
have relatives who current-
ly smoke, and that they
don't approve of the habit.
In civil cases, jurors are
allowed to assign a portion
of blame to both sides, or
find for one or the other
side completely.
R.J. Reynolds currently
manufactures Camel,
Century, Doral, Magna,
Monarch, More, Now,
Salem, Sterling, Vantage
and Winston cigarettes.


New purpose for old trees


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


PANAMA
BEACH, Fla. -
people in the


Panhandle donated their
Christmas trees to a zoo,
instead of throwing them
out.
The trees were covered


with peanut butter, cereal
and Fruit Roll-Ups for the
animals at Zoo World in
Panama City Beach.
The animals also got
wrapped presents under
the trees. Zoo officials say
these gifts enrich the ani-
mals mentally and physi-'
cally.


Zoo World's director of
education says lions and
tigers like to rub against
the trees to get the scent.
The zoo says they're
always looking for enrich-
ment items for the ani-
mals, such as buckets,
colognes, cereal and
Christmas trees.


BY BRENDAN FARRINGTON
AP POLITICAL WRITER
TALLAHASSEE, Fla.
- In many ways,
Republican Rick Scott's
two-day inaugural cele-
bration is a return to tradi-
tion: lunches and dinners,
a prayer breakfast, a
parade, open house at the
governor's mansion and a
ball.
But once the parties and
pomp are over, expect his
traditional ways to end.
Scott, who spent tens of
millions of dollars of his
own money to win a bitter
election, is a political out-
sider who ran against the
so-called Tallahassee
insiders.
The former hospital
company CEO believes
there's room to cut the
budget in a 'state where
politicians say they've cut
just about all they can. He
also wants to get rid of the
corporate income tax,
which provides Florida
with about $2 billion a
year, just two years after
Gov. Charlie Crist and the
Legislature raised taxes
and fees by $2 billion to
help meet budget needs.
"You knew what you
were voting for, you knew
what I was going to do,"
Scott said in a recent inter-
view. "I'm not going to
surprise anybody."
In a nutshell, he says
he's going to reduce the
size of government, force
agencies to cut costs,
review every state regula-
tion and question why it
exists, speed up the
process and get rid of
uncertainty for project
approvals, and gradually
eliminate the corporate
income tax to entice more


businesses to Florida.
"Sometimes it takes
greater pain to get relief
from pain," said lobbyist
Ron Book. "We've got
some pain yet that we're
all going to suffer."
Book said Scott has cre-
ated thousands of jobs and
his business experience
and a different approach is
needed to turn around
Florida's economy.
"We needed a different
style of leadership to get
us out of where we're at
and he's going to provide
that," Book said. "He's
obsessed and laser-like
focused on how to get this
deal done."
But that is the agenda
for after today's inaugura-
tion. On Monday, the
focus was more on cele-
brating the victory and
-paying tribute to others.
A morning breakfast
honored women in leader-
ship, including Jennifer
Carroll, who will be sworn
in today as Florida's first
black lieutenant governor
and the first woman elect-
ed to the position, and
Republican Pam Bondi,
who will become the first
woman to serve as
Florida's attorney general.
"This is the beginning,
we are going to turn the
state around, there is no
question," Scott said after
praising Carroll and
Bondi. "We're also going
to make this a place where
it doesn't matter whether
you're male or female,
whether you are black or
white, whatever. You have
every opportunity to do
whatever you want to do,

The drill whirs as Grist knocks
the rough edges off the teeth.
When he's finished, part of the
chip is still visible. Removing all
of it would make the tooth too flat
and smooth. That would leave a
horse unable to chew, rather like a
human "trying to eat a steak with-
out any teeth," Clifford said.
Grist and Clifford do an average
of seven to 10 horses a day at a
cost of about $150.
Clifford conceded that many in
the horse world are skeptical about
using power tools in a horse's
mouth. The need to tranquilize the
horse and the possibility of grind-
ing a horse's teeth so flat they


become virtually useless are valid
concerns, Clifford said.
"It basically just depends on
who's using the tools," he said.
"It's perfectly safe for someone
who's trained with it."
But the advantages of power
tools are clear: The job is faster,
more delicate work can be done
and there's less trauma to the
horse.
It's rare, Clifford said, to find a
horse that has had work done with
a hand rasp not to have cuts or
bruises on the insides of its cheeks.
But with power tools, it's rare to
fin4 that kind of injury or to see
any blood unless a tooth needs to
be extracted.

Florida arms dealer gets 4


years in Pentagon fraud


BY CURT ANDERSON
AP LEGAL AFFAIRS WRITER

MIAMI A youthful
arms dealer whose compa-
ny once boasted a $300
million Pentagon muni-
tions contract was sen-
tenced Monday to four
years in federal prison for
trying to ship millions of
rounds of prohibited
Chinese-made ammuni-
tion to Afghan forces
fighting alongside U.S.
troops.
U.S. District Judge
Joan Lenard imposed the
sentence on 25-year-old
Efraim Diveroli, who
faced a maximum of five
years behind bars after
pleading guilty in 2009 to
a fraud conspiracy charge.
Three other executives in
Diveroli's AEY Inc. are
awaiting sentencing.
Lenard gave Diveroli
credit for accepting
responsibility for :,the
crime, but said he
deserved a serious stint in
prison because his
scheme could have endan-

There was also no dis-

the material changes that
would result if the switch
is made from an MSTU to
an MSBU.
The county regulations
on the existing MSTU
state that the money col-

assessment is to provide
"recreation services and
facilities, law enforce-
ment, road maintenance
and other such municipal
services permitted" under
the regulation, and as the
county might deem appro-


private in the future.
The proposed resolu-
tion to replace the MSTU
with an MSBU states that
money collected via an
MSBU would be used on
fire rescue, road improve-
ments and neighborhood
amenities.
But in another section,
the proposed resolution
leaves out the language
concerning amenities,
stating that the assess-
ments are "for the cost of

It's also safer for the dentist who
must handle horses that can be
skittish and bite and kick as a
defense. Sedation doesn't prevent
all problems, however.
Clifford said he was once doing
a minor medical procedure on a
horse and "just lightning fast, he
kicked as hard as he could. It was
completely unexpected."
Kicking isn't the only difficulty.
One horse went down in the
trailer. Clifford said he thought
something horrible had happened,
but the handler said "not to worry.
This horse is a jerk and he lays
down when he gets mad. He does
that every time he'gets mad."
And there's the size issue. Their
smallest patient is a dwarf minia-
ture horse named Leo. Leo weighs
about 80 pounds and is only 20
inches tall. Grist has to sit on the
ground to do Leo's teeth.
Their practice is not limited to
horses. One client has a zebra,
which only trusts the owner. So
Grist and Clifford have to hang
around until the zebra allows them
to get close.
"It takes both of us longer to get
the drugs into him than (to do) the
dental," Clifford said.
Then, there are the llamas. The
first time Grist agreed to do some
work on llamas, he was mindful of
their reputation for spitting. He
bought full facial masks and hel-
mets. The extra equipment proved
to be unnecessary.
"None of them spit at us,"
Clifford said.
That's not been true of all lla-
mas.
"They have three stomachs, so
they can throw up from down
deep," Clifford said.

Davis optimistic in 2011


BY SHELIA MADE
FLORIDAN CORRESPONDENT
Former Marianna High
School Lady Bulldog soc-
cer forward Sianna Davis
has just completed her sec-
ond season with
Southeastern University in
Lakeland. Sianna led the
Lady Bulldogs in goals
scored her junior and sen-
ior year.
As a freshman at


Southeastern, Davis played
in all but one game, scoring
four goals and recording
two assists. Her team fin-
ished 16-6 with a regional
championship, before falling
in the nationals.
Davis was a starter her
sophomore year, scoring
two goals with two assists
in limited playing time due
to injury and illness. Early
in the season, Davis was
forced from the line up due


to illness, missing two
games. Shortly after her
return, Davis suffered a
foot injury that sidelined
her for three games. With a
very young team,
Southeastern managed to
finish with an 11-8 record.
Davis is optimistic
about her team's capabili-
ties for next season with
many players returning
from last year's team.
Southeastern is now a


member of the NAIA
Division I in the NCCAA
league. Davis will report
to Southeastern next
week, where the team will
begin conditioning and
training for the next sea-
son. Spring training is three
times a week, with inner
squad scrimmages in
preparation for their
August pre-season. Regular
season begins the end of
August.


Legacies continue

Miller makes a hit. Bottom, Laramie Dryden makes a
catch at second. Dryden is expected to start at second
base for the Bollweevils of Enterprise Junior College,
while Clemmons also earned a spot on the team as a
starting pitcher.-Mark Skinner/Floridan


Ex-Bulldogs, still shining on diamond


BY SHELIA MADER
FLORIDAN CORRESPONDENT
In 2009, Marianna High
School graduated a banner
class of athletes, with five
continuing to play at the
college level and one put-
ting his knowledge to use
as a coach.
Dustin Miller will
return to the coach's box
as an assistant to Hunter
Nolen at Marianna Middle
School. ,Last year was
both Nolen and Miller's
first year, and they
coached their team to a
perfect 15-0 season, cap-
turing the Panhandle
C o n f e r e n c e
Championship. Miller
r served as a hitting coach,
as well as assisting with
fielding and pitching.
Adam Bigale returns to
Chipola this spring under
coach Jeff Johnson. Bigale


had limited playing time
in his freshman year, but is
coming off a strong fall
season, batting over .300
with extensive playing
time at first base. As of
now, Bigale looks to be
the back-up first baseman
and a designated hitter for
the Indians in the spring.
Troy Clemmons returns
to the playing field after
spending last year as an
assistant coach for the
Marianna Middle School
Bullpups. After a year off
the playing field,
Clemmons was not ready
to hang up his cleats, and
will take his talents to
Enterprise Junior College
in Alabama. Clemmons
had a chance to get his
feet wet this fall with the
Bollweevils. The south-
paw looks to be in the
pitching rotation as the
number two or three


starter and, when not on
the mound, will anchor
down first base.
Clemmons said of his bat-
ting, "I was swinging it
pretty good, getting back
in the game pretty good."
Laramie Dryden will
also be at Enterprise
Junior College this year,
after transferring there in
the spring of last year. He
spent his first semester as
a freshman at Troy State
University as a baseball
manager under coach
Bobby Pierce. Not ready
to leave the playing field,
Dryden landed a spot on
the Bollweevil roster.
Dryden is expected to be
the starting second base-
man this year and brings a
strong bat to the table.
"My bat looked good in
the fall and hopefully it
will continue," Dryden
said.


Brandon Gardner left
Monday to report to
Lambuth University in
Jackson, Tenn. Gardner is
excited to return as a red-
shirt sophomore to the
baseball field.
"The program has a new
coach with a lot of new
players," Gardner said.
"They won 41 games last
year. We have a new coach
and I expect a good sea-
son."
Gardner will be an out-
fielder for Lambuth.
Tyler Wilson returns to
Freed Hardemann
University for his first
spring season with the
university. Wilson had a
productive fall working on
drills and hitting, and is
looking forward to the real
season, which is sched-
uled to start in February.
Wilson will play an out-
field position.

Fisher notches


10-victories in


first season


BY BRENT KALLESTAD
ASSOCIATED PRESS
TALLAHASSEE -
Jimbo Fisher isn't looking
back on his fast start at
Florida State.
He was back at work
Monday preparing for a
final push on a new
recruiting class.
The 23rd-ranked
Seminoles capped a 10-4
season in Fisher's inaugu-
ral campaign as a head
coach with an impressive
Chick-fil-A Bowl win
over No. 19 South


Carolina on New Year's
eve.
Only a missed field
goal and fumble in last-
minute losses to North
Carolina State and North
Carolina prevented the
Seminoles from a 12-2
record. They couldn't,
however, keep up with
Oklahoma or Virginia
Tech, but have a rematch
scheduled with the
Sooners in September and
could possibly meet the
Hokies -again in next
year's Atlantic Coast
Conference title game.


Florida confirms


Weis hire, adds


Quinn, Verducci


BY MARK LONG
AP SPORTS WRITER
GAINESVILLE Will
Muschamp's staff at
Florida is taking shape.
Kansas City Chiefs
coach Todd Haley con-
firmed Sunday that Charlie
Weis will be Florida's
offensive coordinator. The
Gators also hired receivers
coach Aubrey Hill and
defensive backs coach
Travaris Robinson, and
retained three current assis-
tants.
Muschamp kept running
backs coach/recruiting
coordinator Stan Drayton,
linebackers coach/special
teams coordinator D.J.
Durkin and tight ends
'coach Brian White. He
already said he would
retain strength and condi-
tioning coordinator Mickey
Marotti.
Drayton, Durkin, White
and Marotti will provide
Florida continuity while
making the transition from
former coach Urban Meyer
to Muschamp.
Weis, meanwhile, should
help revamp Florida's
worst offense in more than
two decades. Weis has been
Kansas City's offensive
coordinator for one year
and is credited with helping
turn Matt Cassel into a top
quarterback and making
Jamaal Charles a Pro Bowl
running back.
Weis was not made avail-
able to the media after the
Chiefs' 31-10 loss to the
Oakland Raiders on
Sunday.
Weis is expected to get
complete control of
Florida's offense and install
the kind of pro-style system
that helped him win three
Super Bowls with the New
England Patriots. Weis'
offense also was effective
during his five-year tenure
at Notre Dame.
Muschamp completed
much of his staff Sunday.
Hill, who played at
Florida (1991-94), is
returning to Gainesville
after spending the last three
years as Miami's receivers
coach. He also served as
the Hurricanes' recruiting


coordinator last year and
has ties to talent-rich South
Florida.
Robinson, a former
Auburn standout and NFL
defensive back, comes to
the Gators after serving as
Texas Tech's secondary
coach last year.
"I thought it was impor-
tant to have some continu-
ity in the staff," Muschamp
said in a statement. "They
are also solid recruiters.
Aubrey is obviously a
Gator, and it's always a
plus when you have some-
one coach at their alma
mater. He understands the
passion and' the expecta-
tions here, and I know he is
excited to return to
Gainesville. Travaris
worked on our staff at
Auburn and is a winner."
Muschamp said he
expects more coaching
moves this week.
Hill's coaching resume
includes a stint as a gradu-
ate assistant at Florida
(1996-98), where he was
part of the program's first
national championship. He
also spent time as Duke's
receivers coach (1999-
2003), Elon's receivers
coach (2004) and
Pittsburgh's receivers
coach (2005-07).
Robinson played for the
Atlanta Falcons and the
Tampa Bay Buccaneers,
then returned to Auburn to
start his coaching career
under Muschamp.
Muschamp was Auburn's
defensive coordinator at the
time (2006-07), and
Robinson was a staff assis-
tant and a graduate assis-
tant.
Drayton and Durkin
joined the Gators in 2010.
Drayton came to
Gainesville with Meyer in
2005, but left after three
seasons. He spent a year at
Tennessee (2008) and a
year at Syracuse (2009),
then rejoined the Gators
last year.
Durkin spent three years
coaching Stanford's defen-
sive ends and special teams,
then joined Meyer's staff
last year as linebackers
coach and special teams
coordinator.

Sparano awaits verdict on his job status


BY STEVEN WNE
AP SPORTS WRITER

DAVIE Like an attor-
ney making his case for the
defendant, Miami Dolphins
quarterback Chad Pennington
was well prepared to present an
argument Monday on behalf of
his coach.
"Everybody needs to take
a look at these last, three
years and realize that before
Tony Sparano got here, this
organization was 16-32 in
three years," Pennington
said. "In the three years he
has been here, the Dolphins
are 25-23 with an AFC East
championship. The right
man for this organization is
Tony Sparano."
Pennington's facts were
accurate but may not be
enough to affect the verdict
on Sparano's future. For the
second year in a row, the
Dolphins faded at the finish
of a disappointing 7-9 sea-
son.
Sparano said he'll discuss
his status in a meeting with
owner Stephen Ross. When
asked if he's worried about
his job, Sparano all but said
yes.


"Listen, I don't take my
job for granted one day, not
one second," he said. "I have
the greatest job in the world,
and I enjoy this organization
and the people here, and I
enjoy coaching this team. I
don't take it for granted at
all. In fact, it's kind of the
other way around for me.
I've put it before a lot of per-
sonal things in my life."
No one questions
Sparano's work ethic, but
after Miami's surprising run
to the 2008 AFC East title in
his first season as an NFL
head coach, there's a sense
of regression. That feeling
was reinforced by three con-
secutive losses to end the
season, including Sunday's
38-7 drubbing at New
England.
Two years ago, Sparano
outcoached Bill Belichick,
unveiling the wildcat for the
first time to help the visiting
Dolphins. humiliate the
Patriots. This time it was the
Dolphins left red-faced by
their trip to New England.
"The things that happened
in that game are not Miami
Dolphins football," line-
backer Cameron Wake said.


Or maybe they are. Ross
said before the season he
expected the Dolphins to
reach the Super Bowl, but
this is the eighth time in nine
years they've fallen shy of
the playoffs. It has been 18
years since they played in
the AFC championship
game, and 26 years since
they made the Super Bowl.
Now they've endured
consecutive losing seasons
with the same coach for the
first time since 1968-69
under George Wilson.
"As much as I hate to say
it, I think we're a middle-of-
the pack team right now,"
running back Ronnie
Brown said. "We haven't
separated ourselves from
the good teams, and we
haven't reached the upper
echelon of the great teams
that consistently go to the
playoffs.
"We have some work to
do in that area, where you
consistently know what
you're going to get from
the Miami Dolphins."
The question now is
whether Sparano will be
given another chance to
lead the Dolphins to that


elusive elite level. His
players' lackluster effort
Sunday did nothing to help
Sparano's cause, but they
remain in his comer.
"It would be good for
him to get another shot,"
Brown said. "He's pas-
sionate. You see him run-
ning up and down the side-
line, and that's what gets
some of us excited. To
know you have a guy like
that behind you means a
lot."
Sparano and. general
manager Jeff Ireland aren't
the only ones with uncer-
tain futures. An offensive
overhaul is likely after the
Dolphins finished next to
last in the AFC in scoring,
and whoever the coach is
in 2011, he may seek to
replace Brown, quarter-
back Chad Henne and run-
ning back Ricky Williams.
It's likely the injury-
plagued Pennington has
played his last game for
Miami. He lasted only two
snaps this season and is
considering -. retirement
after undergoing surgery
on his throwing shoulder
for the fourth time.

KIT 'N' CARLYLE BY LARRY WRIGHT


HERMAN BY JIM UNGER

1-4 & LaughingSlock Intemalional fnc/dst by UFS Inc, 2011

"How much is this book on speed reading?"


Dear Annie: I am a 20-year-old college soph-
omore. The summer before my senior year of
high school, I took a trip to Europe with a reli-
gious youth group. From the moment we board-
ed the plane, "Rachel" and I shared a connec-
tion. By the second day, we were inseparable.
After the trip, we stayed in touch.
A year later, the youth group held a reunion
and I got to see Rachel again. That December,
she came to my school's postseason football
game, and we both finally said "I love you." I
spent last summer in her hometown,
attending classes at a local universi-
ty and working part time.
The summer could not have been
better, but Rachel and I both
decided to step back and go our j
separate ways since she wanted otte
the full "college experience" for \
her freshman year. But now I\
want to find ways for us to be
together. I feel that this isn't over
- it can't be.
I have no doubt that we are in love. We are
perfect for each other in our values, aspira-
tions and everything in between. I will give
her whatever time and freedom she needs. All
I want to know is whether I am right to believe
the love we share is too special to die. Do I have
to let her go and move on forever, or should I try
to get back together when the time is right? -
Confused and In Love
Dear Confused: The intensity of finding
someone special during the summer may not
translate to a permanent relationship, regardless
of how it seems to you now. And too much


intensity can be frightening. You and Rachel
may have a future together, but you should not
presume it, nor should you put your social life
on hold waiting for her. Yes, there is a risk that
she will find someone else (so might you). We
recommend you limit this to a light and easy
friendship, periodically texting and keeping in
touch via Facebook. If she wants more, she will
let you know.
Dear Annie: Several years ago, a dear friend
suddenly ended our friendship. Confused, I
asked why, and "Anna" presented me with a
litany of my faults. I felt blindsided
( and unfairly treated. I thought I
K was a good friend. I even took
care of her when she was recov-
ering from surgery.
Two weeks later, Anna asked if
-_ we could be friends again. I
replied, "Of course!" and things
\ returned to normal. But last year,
she once again abruptly ended
things. I have since discovered
she has treated others this way.
Anna's cold shoulder is
beginning to warm again. I admit,
I miss my friend -she's smart, funny and has
many good qualities. But a big part of me says
to value my dignity and mental health more. Am
I on the right track? Agony in Iowa
Dear Iowa: Anna sounds mentally unstable.
Without appropriate treatment, we can guaran-
tee her hot-and-cold attitude will continue. If
you think you can convince her to get help. it
might be worth retaining the friendship, but oth-
erwise, you are smart to let this one go. Sonrry.


BRIDGE


The deal that was deemed to be the best-played of the year
was characteristic of its declarer, the highly imaginative Michael
Courtney from Australia.
During a rubber-bridge game in Sydney, North opened a
modern-day pre-empt with only a six-card suit. Courtney; hop-
ing for nine fast winners, tried three no-trump.
West led the spade six, fourth-highest. Declarer would have
done best to play low from the dummy, but hoping that West had
the jack, Courtney called for dummy's 10, which was covered by
the jack and king. Then declarer ran the diamond jack, losing to
East's king. What happened next?
If you can anticipate this denouement, you are very creative.
You and I can see that if East had just returned a spade, West
would have taken five tricks in the suit and the contract would
have gone down four. But East thought he should cash some
heart winners before going back to spades. He led the heart king,
under which West dropped the jack to deny holding the queen.
Then East cashed the heart ace and South dropped his queen!
Thinking this had to be from a doubleton and not knowing that
East had a second spade, West unblocked (played) his heart 10.
East, believing he had hit the jackpot, led a third heart.
Imagine his surprise when South produced the nine and claimed
nine tricks: one spade, one heart, five diamonds and two clubs.
Didn't Courtney risk looking silly if East had started with a
singleton spade? No! Assuming West's spade six was an honest
fourth-highest, East had to have at least one more spade.

HOROSCOPE
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.
19) Express your inner resolve
in ways that force you to take a
far more positive stance on what
you do. Don't hesitate to put the
pedal to the metal, if you feel the
need for speed.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19)
There is a strong likelihood that
someone who likes you will pro-
vide you with confidential infor-
mation that will prove to be
materially beneficial and could
help you immensely.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -
If people who believe in you
want you to head up a certain
position, don't hesitate to take
the job. You'll be very good at
organizing committees or spe-
cial groups to handle specific
purposes.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -
Don't be.surprised-that, when in
situations that require a certain
amount of strategy, you'll find
yourself a few steps ahead of
your competitors. Don't hesitate
to anticipate.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -
Do what you can to find better
ways- to advance your plans to
beat out the competition. Your
cleverness, combined with your
abilities and talent, should do
the trick.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) A
certain amount of adjustments
or compromises are likely to be
required in order to have good
dealings with your associates.
Proper give-and-take will bring
issues into proper balance.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -
Even some of your more difficult
tasks will go much smoother if
you make sure that you use your
mind and not just your muscles.
It'll be the best way to lessen
your burdens.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -
You're much too smart to simply
use your muscles to handle sev-
eral difficult tasks. Use your
mind to conceive ways and
means that would lessen many
of your burdens.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) If
you would like to get along bet-
ter with others than you have
been lately, the best way is to
utilize your abilities in order to
understand their motives and
what they find important.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) .-
Far more can be accomplished if
your purpose is to do for others
and not just for yourself. Put
being of service to them on the
top of your list, and it'll do won-
ders for your popularity as well.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -
Don't simply be a complainer
who is just standing around on
the sidelines watching every-
body else: Step to the fore and
personally take charge of situa-
tions that you feel you can do
better.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec.
21) Don't hesitate or be afraid
to stand up for your rights
regarding developments that
affect you and/or the interests of
your family. Better terms can be
realized if you stiffen your posi-
tion.

House GOP s


BY RICARDO ALONS-ZALDIVAR
ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON -
Eager to show who's now in
charge, the House's new
Republican majority plans
to vote to repeal President
Barack Obama's landmark
health care overhaul before
he even shows up in their
chamber to give his State of
the Union address.
Though full repeal is a
longshot the House vote
would be just the first, easi-
est step they'll follow up
with dozens of attempts to
hack away at what they deri-
sively call "Obamacare."
The strategy is not risk-
free for the Republicans,
who won't have a replace-
ment plan of their own ready
by the time of the repeal
vote. But they say there's no
time to lose.
Senate Democratic lead-
ers are sending their own
"you-don't-scare-me" mes-
sage. In a letter Monday to
House Speaker-to-be John
Boehner, they served notice
that they'll block any repeal,


arguing it would kill popular
provisions such as improved
prescription coverage for
Medicare.
All the while, the Obama
administration intends to
keep putting into place the
law's framework for cover-
ing more than 30 million
uninsured people.
Ultimately, Obama still has
his veto pen, and
Republicans aren't any-
where close to the two-
thirds majorities they would
need to override.
Most likely, both parties
will carry the main issues of
the health care debate into
the 2012 presidential elec-
tion, when Obama is
expected to seek a second
term and House and Senate
control will be up for grabs
again.
"It's not going to be easy;
it's going to be a long, hard
slog," said Rep. Steve King,
R-Iowa, an early leader in
the repeal drive. The quick
thumbs-down vote by the
House will have "tremen-
dous utility and value,"
King said, but it may take


INTERNATIONAL


ending
electing a Republican presi-
dent in Obama's place to
accomplish the overall goal.
"Repeal and replace"
worked as a campaign slo-
gan to motivate voters con-
cerned about the growing
reach of government under
Obama. But a single-mind-
ed focus on repeal could
backfire as a Republican
governing strategy. Polls
show that some parts of the
law are popular, and many
Americans would have
wanted even bigger
changes.
Look for Republicans to
try to deny money for the
government to carry out the
law. They'll also attempt to
strip out sections of it, such
as a new long-term care
program. And they'll move
to strengthen restrictions on
funding for abortions.
It's far from clear that
they'll be able to prevail in
those efforts either. There's
talk that an effort to deny
funding could even escalate
to the point of a possible
government shutdown, and
no one seems eager for that.

Facebook nets $500 million from Goldman Sachs


BY BARBARA ORTUARY
AP TECHNOLOGY WRITER

NEW YORK A
reported investment .by
Goldman Sachs and a
Russian investor of $500
million in Facebook is a
further sign that the social
networking behemoth is
becoming a powerful force
even outside tech circles,
even as the company tries
to push off going public as
long as possible.
The investment implies
that the company is worth
$50 billion, according to
the report more than
twice the market valuation
of Yahoo Inc., though still
well below its famous
Silicon Valley rival, Google
Inc.
The New York Times
reported the investment
over the weekend, citing
unnamed people involved
with the deal. Facebook
and Goldman Sachs
declined to comment


"It's like you
win when 'ou
go public, and
that's just not
how I see it."
-Mark Zuckerberg,
Facebook CEO


Monday.
Russian investor Digital
Sky Technologies already
has a small stake in
Facebook, but the invest-
ment from Goldman Sachs
is a sign of just how big the
Palo Alto, Calif.-based
startup has become in the
nearly seven years since it
was born in CEO Mark
Zuckerberg's Harvard
dorm room.
Wedbush Morgan ana-
lyst Lou Kerner, who's
been bullish on social
media and Facebook in


particular, said Facebook is
worth the $50 billion the
investment implies:
He said that amount is 15
percent legs than the going
rate on private stock
exchanges, and just half of
what Kerner thinks
Facebook's shares would
trade at if the company
were to go public.
Shares of privately held
companies can be traded on
private stock exchanges
such as SecondMarket and
SharesPost. The shares are
generally sold by former
employees or early
investors in these compa-
nies. Only institutional
investors or high net-worth
individuals those worth
more than $1 million -
can buy the shares.
On SharesPost, a com-
pleted contract between a
buyer and a seller valued
shares Facebook at $25
each. This implies a valua-
tion of nearly $57 billion
for the world's largest


social network, with 500
million-plus users world-
wide.
While the market for
Facebook's shares is hot,
it's not guaranteed that the
company's shares would be
worth on the public market
what they go for in private
exchanges.
Not that Facebook is in
any rush to go public.
Zuckerberg, 26, has long
been coy about a possible
initial public offering,
recently telling CBS' "60
Minutes" that he doesn't
see selling the company or
going public as an end
goal, as a lot of people
seem to.
"(It's) like you win when
you go public. And that's
just not how I see it," he
said on Dec. 5.
There are many reasons
for Facebook to put off an
IPO, a big one being that it
doesn't need the money, as
the latest investment
shows. Companies go pub-


lic to get access to capital,
and Facebook clearly has
access to capital, Kerner
said.
Becoming public also
requires a "significant time
commitment" from a com-
pany's senior management
that they could otherwise
spend running the compa-
ny, he added. Zuckerberg
has been deeply involved
with running Facebook
since its founding and
shows no signs of wanting
to give that up to cash out.
He's even pledged to give
away at least half of his
wealth along with a slew of
much older billionaires
such as Carl Icahn and
Barry Diller.
And Facebook, which
already faces government
scrutiny for the way it han-
dles the troves of personal
information its users share
through its tools, would be
subject to even more por-
ing eyes were it to go pub-
lic, Kerner noted.


"If I'm Facebook, I don't
think I ever want to go pub-
lic," he said.
The company discloses
very limited financial
information now, but this
could change if the number
of its shareholders hits 500.
At that point, Securities
and Exchange Commission
rules would kick in requir-
ing it to disclose more
numbers, even if it doesn't
go public. The company
has been trying to prevent
this from happening. It bars
current employees from
selling their shares, for
example.
Facebook hasn't said
whether it's profitable,
though in 2009 it said it
was "cash-flow positive,"
meaning it was bringing in
more money than it was
spending. Research firm
eMarketer estimates that
Facebook generated $1.29
billion in online ad revenue
in 2010 and will rake in
$1.76 billion in 2011.


Labs seek clues after 3,000 birds die


BY JEANNIE NUSS
ASSOCIATED PRESS

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -
Wildlife experts are trying
to solve a mystery that
evoked images of the
apocalypse: Why did more
than 3,000 red-winged
blackbirds tumble from
the Arkansas sky shortly
before midnight on New
Year's Eve?
Scientists are investigat-
ing whether bad weather,
fireworks or poison might
have forced the birds out
of the sky, or if a disori-
ented bird simply led the
flock into the ground.
"We have a lot more
questions," said Karen
Rowe, an ornithologist
with the Arkansas Game
and Fish Commission. She
said there are documented
cases of birds becoming
confused and plunging to
earth.
Residents of the small
town of Beebe, northeast
of Little Rock, awoke
Saturday ,to find thousands
of dead blackbirds litter-
ing a 1.5-square-mile area.
The birds inexplicably
dropped dead, landing on
homes, cars and lawns.
Cleanup crews wore pro-
tective suits, gas masks
and rubber gloves as they
spent the holiday weekend
gathering the carcasses.
The director of Cornell
University's ornithology
lab in Ithaca, N.Y., said
the most likely suspect is
violent weather. It's prob-
able that thousands of
birds were asleep, roost-
ing in a single tree, when a
"washing machine-type
thunderstorm" sucked
them up into the air, dis-
oriented them, and even
fatally soaked and chilled
them.
"Bad weather can occa-
sionally catch flocks off
guard, blow them off a
roost, and they get hurled
up suddenly into this thun-
dercloud," lab director
John Fitzpatrick said.
Rough weather had hit
the state earlier Friday, b'it
the worst of it was already
well east of Beebe by the
time the birds started


Cindy Bryant and her husband Stephen examine one of
the thousands of dead birds that fell from the sky
between 11 p.m. New Years Eve and early New Years
Day near their home in Beebe, Ark. Te Arkansas
Game and Fish Commission said Saturday more than
1,000 dead black birds fell from the sky in Beebe. The
agency said its enforcement officers began receiving
reports about the dead birds about 11:30 p.m. Friday.

falling, said Chris
Buonanno, a forecaster
with the National Weather
Service in North Little
Rock.
If weather was the
cause, the birds could
have died in several ways,
Fitzpatrick said. They
could easily become did-
oriented with no lights
to tell them up and down
- and smack into the
ground. Or they could
have died from exposure.
The birds' feathers keep
them at a toasty 103
degrees, but "once that
coat gets unnaturally wet,
it's only a matter of min-
utes before they're done
for," Fitzpatrick said.
Regardless of how they
died, the birds will not be
missed. Large blackbird
roosts like one at Beebe


can have thousands of
birds that leave ankle- to
knee-deep piles of drop-
pings in places.
Nearly a decade ago,
state wildlife officials
fired blanks from shotguns
and cannons to move a
roost of thousands of
blackbirds from Beebe. In
recent years, many of the
migratory birds returned.
Red-winged blackbirds
are the among North
America's most abundant
birds, with somewhere
between 100 million and
200 rpillion nationwide,
Fitzpatrick said. Rowe put
the number of dead in
Beebe at "easily 3,000."
Bird carcasses were
shipped to the Arkansas
Livestock and Poultry
Commission and the
National Wildlife Health


Center in Madison, Wis.
Researchers in Georgia
also asked for a set of the
dead birds. Test results
could be back in a week.
Rowe said many of the
birds suffered injuries
from striking the ground,
but it was not clear
whether they were alive
when they hit. A few
grackles and a couple of
starlings were also among
the dead. Those species
roost with blackbirds, par-
ticularly in winter.
Tens of thousands of
blackbirds can roost in a
single tree. And they do
not see well at night, when
they usually sleep,
Fitzpatrick said.
Earlier Friday, a tornado
killed three people in
Cincinnati, Ark., about
150 miles away. Then a
couple hours before the
birds died, thunderstorms
also passed through parts
of central Arkansas.
Lightning could have
killed the birds directly or
startled them to the point
that they became con-
fused. Hail also has been
known to knock birds
from the sky.
In 2001, lightning killed
about 20 mallards at Hot
Springs, and a flock of
dead pelicans was found
in the woods about 10
years ago, Rowe said. Lab
tests showed that they,
too, had been hit by light-
ing.
Back in 1973, hail
knocked birds from the
sky at Stuttgart, Ark., on
the day before hunting
season. Some of the birds
were caught in a violent-
storm's updrafts and
became encased in ice
before falling from the
sky.
Rowe and Fitzpatrick
said poisoning was possi-
ble but unlikely. Rowe
said birds of prey and
other animals, including
dogs and cats, ate several
of the dead birds and suf-
fered no ill effects.
"Every dog and cat in
the neighborhood. that
night was able to get a
fresh snack that night,"
Rowe said.


How your brain


can sabatoge your

2011 resolutions


BY LAURAN NEERGAARD
AP MEDICAL WRITER

WASHINGTON Uh-
oh, the new year's just
begun and already you're
finding it hard to keep
those resolutions to junk
the junk food, get off the
couch or kick smoking.
There's a biological rea-
son a lot of our bad habits
are so hard to break -
they get wired into our
brains.
That's not an excuse to
give up. Understanding
how unhealthy behaviors
become ingrained has sci-
entists learning some
tricks that may help good
habits replace the bad.
"Why are bad habits
stronger? You're fighting
against the power of an
immediate reward," says
Dr. Nora Volkow, director
of the National Institute
on Drug Abuse and an
authority on the brain's
pleasure pathway.
It's the fudge vs. broc-
coli choice: Chocolate's
yum factor tends to beat
out the knowledge that
.sticking with veggies
brings an eventual reward
of lost pounds.
"We all as creatures are
hard-wired that way, to
give greater value to an
immediate reward as
opposed to something
that's delayed," Volkow
says.
Just how that bit of hap-
piness turns into a habit
involves a pleasure-sens-
ing chemical named
dopamine. It conditions
the brain to want that
reward again and again -
reinforcing the connection
each time especially
when it gets the right cue
from your environment.
People tend to overesti-
mate their ability to resist
temptations around them,
thus undermining
attempts to shed bad
habits, says experimental
psychologist Loran


Nordgren, an assistant
professor at Northwestern
University's Kellogg
School of Management.
"People have this self-
control hubris, this belief
they can handle more than
they can," says Nordgren,
who studies the tug-of-
war between willpower
and temptation.
In one experiment, he
measured whether heavy
smokers could watch a
film that romanticizes the
habit called "Coffee
and Cigarettes" with-
out taking a puff. Upping
the ante, they'd be paid
according to their level of
temptation: Could they
hold an unlit cigarette
while watching? Keep the
pack on the table? Or did
they need to leave the
pack in another room?
Smokers who'd predict-
ed they could resist a lot
of temptation tended to
hold the unlit cigarette -
and were more likely to
light up than those who
knew better than to hang
onto the pack, says
Nordgren. He now is
beginning to study how
recovering drug addicts
deal with real-world temp-
tations.
But temptation can be
more insidious than how
close at hand the ciga-
rettes are.
Always snack in front
of your favorite TV show?
A dopamine-rich part of
the brain named the stria-
turn memorizes rituals and
routines that are linked to
getting a particular
reward, explains NIDA's
Volkow. Eventually, those
environmental cues trig-
ger the striatum to make
some behaviors almost
automatic.
Even scientists who rec-
ognize it can fall prey.
"I don't like popcorn.
But every time I go to the
cinema, 1 have to eat it,"
Volkow says. "It's fasci-
nating."
