BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
Fi 0H)I'I \N SI I\1 1 VIII1 R
Jackson County residents have
nominated a dozen people for
Citizen of the Year for 2010. The
person selected will be
announced at Friday's Jackson
County Chamber of Commerce
annual banquet.


The nominees are C.C.
Harrison, Lowell Centers, Callie
Wooten, the Rev. William
Harvey, Henrietta Wadsworth,
Sharon A. Norris McMillion,
Steve and Mary Ann Hutton,
Aundrea Sellars, Homer Hirt,
Robbie Taylor and Larry Cobb.
Harrison was nominated in part
because he and his family have


donated more than $400,000 for
the construction of a chapel at
Chipola College, which opened
in early fall of last year.
The Chapel at Chipola includes
a large meeting room, a vaulted
ceiling, a stained glass window
and a large video screen. The
Harrisons built the chapel

important that students develop
character and faith," according to
Chipola President Gene Prough,
who noted that the chapel pro-
vides students a place to "reflect
on th6 important things in life
and develop friendships and rela-
tionships that will last long after
they have left Chipola."
Prough went on to say that the


Harrison's gift "will impact our
students in this life and beyond,
and will have a positive impact
on the citizens of Jackson County
for years to come."
Lowell Centers served many
years as an educator and was a

remembered

with songs

and speeches

BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
F!O Ii A\ S] T III iS
Pianist Jill Wallace played "Jesus Loves
Me" as students filed into the Marianna
High School auditorium Tuesday morn-
The students were coming to say their
last goodbyes to schoolmate Devaunte
Patterson. The 17-year-old died in a traffic
crash on Jan. 15.
Wallace, an American history teacher at
Marianna High, didn't say a word at the
Tuesday ceremony. But in her arrange-
ment of the song, she paid her own kind of
tribute.
She began by playing one key at a time
in an elementary versionof the song, the
way a very young, beginning player might
perform it.
She added complexity as she went
along, with chords and runs. As the song
slowed to its end, the bass chords and
slowing pace had added the somberness
of grief, and a processional tone.
The arrangement was a story of matura-
tion and finally, rest, in much the way a
life progresses.
Wallace played other pieces, too,
throughout the students' processional into
the auditorium. As she did so, pictures of
Devaunte were displayed on a large
screen. They included shots of him as a
very young boy at home in front of a
Christmas tree, dressed up in a tiny tuxe-
do at a wedding and as a student in his
culinary classes at school. There were var-
ious family shots, and pictures of him in
his Buffalo Soldiers.regalia.
Students and Marianna High staff took
over when Wallace was done.
Jackson County School Superintendent
Lee Miller, Marianna High School princi-
pal Mary Sue Neves and assistant princi-
pal Rex Suggs spoke of Patterson as a dili-
gent, kind, respectful and academically

Low enforcement and other emergency personnel gather outside the DOVE girls facility early Monday night. A riot left
several staff members injured; two inmates have been charged. Mark Skinner/Floridan


STAFF REPORT
More than a dozen residents
face charges after authorities
had to call for backup during a
disturbance involving multiple
residents at a DOVE facility
for girls near Graceville early
Monday evening.
Two residents of the facility
were charged, as adults, with
inciting a riot. The women
were identified as Broderica
Jones and Tiquosha Ortiz, both
18 years of age. Jones turned
18 on Sunday, Ortiz turned 18
last April.
Officials say 11 others were
charged, as juveniles, with,


inciting a riot. The other 11
were taken to a detention facil-
ity in Panama City following
the incident. Two of the juve-
niles were additionally charged
with resisting arrest.
One staff member was taken
to an. area hospital for treat-
ment of an injury suffered
while responding to the inci-
dent. The injury was not
caused by any of the residents,
and was not life threatening.
Multiple agencies responded
to the scene, including the
Florida Highway Patrol, the
Graceville Police Department.
the Jackson County Sheriff's
Office, Jackson County Fire


Rescue and the Department of
Transportation. Other agen-
cies. including the Marianna
Police Department, also
offered to send units if needed.
Authorities assisted staff in
helping restore order and secu-
rity in the wake of the distur-
bance. It began in a fenced
recreation area on the grounds
of the facility, and progressed
inside while continuing out-
side. Authorities say some fur-
niture was disturbed and possi-
bly damaged in the incident.
Authorities with the Jackson
County Sheriff's Office did not
know Tuesday what led to the
disturbance. DOVE represen-


tatives did not immediately
return phone calls seeking fur-
ther information on the inci-
dent.
Dove Academy and Dove
Intensive Mental Health are
privately run and operate under
contract with the Department
of Juvenile Justice.
According to the facility's
website, Dove Academy is a
50-bed, moderate risk residen-
tial program for girls 15 to 18
years of age. DOVE stands for
Developing Opportunities
through Vocational Education.

JTrans unveils new bus


The Marianna High School Chorus sings
Irish Blessing at a school ceremony held
Tuesday in remembrance of Devaunte
Patterson, the student who died earlier
this week in a car accident. Deborah
Buckhalter/Floridan


Driver Becky Stephens stands on a step in the new bus JTrans will use to run its Marianna city bus route. The new bus was put into
service Tuesday. It is a little wider than the old one used on the Marianna route, giving passengers more elbowroom, according to
JTrans representative Sharon Peeler. The new bus was also outfitted with a new "Hop On" logo, and graphics featuring bright green
frogs. The new motto is meant to bring attention to the bus service and encourage people to take advantage of it, Peeler said.
The Marianna bus runs every Tuesday and Friday, and Marianna provides some funding to help defray the cost of operating the
line. The bus makes five rounds each operating day, running from the west end of Marianna to Walmart, with 29 bus stop loca-
tions throughout the city. The route begins at 7:30 a.m. and ends at 4 p.m. The cost per trip is $1 for adults and 50 cents for chil-
dren under 10 years of age. For more information, call Peeler at 482-7433. Contributed photo

Our Opinion" "SE


It shouldn't


have to


come to this

The county moved with alacrity to
place speed limit and stop ahead signs on
Old Greenwood Road last week.
But only after a 17-year-old, out
reminding youngsters on their bikes that
they had been told to stay off that danger-
ous section of road, was killed in an acci-
dent.
It is good to see county officials
respond so quickly to concerns raised by
residents regarding the lack of road and
warning signs. However, residents say
they have raised those concerns before -
did it really take the death of a young man
to finally mobilize county government?
We hope not.
We understand budgets are tight, and
resources are scarce. When it comes to
setting priorities, public safety should be
at the top of the list.

Edit first, publish later


BY COKIE AND
STEVEN V. ROBERTS

"Giffords Shooting
Highlights a Digital News
Danger." That was the headline
over a column by the
Washington Post ombudsman,
Andrew Alexander, criticizing
his paper's coverage of the
tragic events in Tucson, Ariz.
When the New York Times
public editor. Arthur Brisbane,
addressed the same subject, the
headline was pithier, "Time, the
Enemy."
Both columns focused on a
small but critical fact: For a
brief period during that chaotic
day, many news organizations
reported that Rep. Gabrielle
Giffords had died. How and
why they made that mistake
reveals something ,important
about the modem media envi-
ronment.
Through a rich variety of
instantaneous outlets Twitter
feeds, e-mail alerts, Facebook
postings the country could
follow the "Giffords shooting"
in real time. In the interest of
speed, those updates often fol-


lowed the adage coined by Jeff
Jarvis, a new-media expert at
CUNY: "Publish first, edit
later."
It's certainly true that the
Web is a self-correcting mecha-
nism. Mistakes can be quickly
spotted by an army of self-
appointed critics and pulled
down as rapidly as they are
posted. The entry reporting
Giffords' death lasted 10 min-
utes at the New York Times
website.
Still, a mistake was made -
a big one. There is no newspa-
per headline preserved for his-
tory comparable to the
"Dewey Beats Trunan" relic
from 1948 saying "Giffords
Killed." But "Time, the
Enemy" sums up the lesson
that should be learned.
The media today is under
enormous pressure to produce
scoops and attract eyeballs,
particularly on the Web. Traffic
equals ads, and ads equal rev-
enue. And while speed has
always been valued in daily
journalism (a craft we practiced
for many years, Steve at the


New York Times and Cokie at
NPR and ABC), the current cli-
mate is approaching insanity.
As Jim Roberts (no relation),
a founding editor of
NYTimes.com, put it, we're
immersed in a "1440/7 news
cycle," 1,440 minutes a day,
seven days a week. Each
minute, according to Brisbane,
is "demanding news for deliv-
ery to a networked world." And
those demands produce errors.
CNN and NPR amongg oth-
ers) made the first mistake,
reporting Giffords' death pre-
maturely: without double-
checking their sources. Other
outlets, like the Times and the
Post, made the second mistake,
simply repeating the informa-
tion at their websites without
confirming it independently.
This practice is understandable
- they didn't have their own
reporters in Tucson but ulti-
mately dangerous. And lazy.
It's a cheap way to "feed the
beast" without taking responsi-
bility for the accuracy of your
own brand.
The third mistake wvas a fail-


ure of editing. As Brisbane
reported, the Times editor in
charge of news alerts initially
told her writer NOT to include
Giffords' death because it had
not been confirmed. But when
the writer updated his posting,
and added the word "killed,"
the editor failed to review what
he wrote. Speed trumped accu-
racy.
"I should have looked at
every change," admitted the
editor. Kathleen McElroy.
"Nobody should self-publish,"
added Times standards editor
Philip Corbett. "Everything
should go through an editor.
Ideally, it should go through
two editors."
Here's the core of the debate:
"Nobody should self-publish"
versus "Publish first, edit later."
The second maxim certainly
has an allure. lt's faster and
cheaper and utilizes "crowd
sourcing" and "citizen journal-
ists" to get things right -
eventually. Even Jonathan
Landman, a digital-media edi-
tor at the New York Times, sees
the wisdom in this approach.


In times of crisis, rule of law steadies


BY BILL MAXWELL

Because Americans funda-
mentally are a people more
alike than different, the recent
massacre of the innocent in
Tucson shocked most of us. It
will leave us with a defining
memory of the senseless loss.
We will carry on with our
lives despite the combustive
politics raging around us, the
very politics that may have
somehow pushed the very dis-
turbed shooter to act. Unlike
people in many other nations
where similar tragedies occur,
we do not fall apart even though
our sense of well-being and our
unique American ethos have
been breached by one of our
own, this time by an apparent
madman.
It is not in our nature to com-
mit widespread, organized acts
of revenge. We are prepared to


Anniversary
remembered

Dear editor,

The Veterans of Foreign
Wars Ted Walk Post 12046
and the Ladies Auxiliary
would like to commemorate
the 38th anniversary of the
Paris peace accord that ended
the United States' military
involvement in the Vietnam
Conflict on Jan. 27, 1973. The
last U.S. combat troops were
withdrawn on March 29,
1973. Almost 9 million
Americans served in Vietnam
from 1961 to 1973. There are
more than 58,000 deaths
attributed to the conflict;
almost 2,000 were Florida
residents. As a result of the
peace accord, 591 American
prisoners of war were
released. There are approxi-


let justice take its course.
Since my undergraduate days
of reading the likes of Alexis de
Tocqueville, Frederic Jackson
Turner. William Whyte,.
Margaret Mead, Carl Becker
and Gordon Allport, who wrote
about the mythic "American
character," I have tried to under-
stand the forces that give the
United States the ability to
maintain basic calm following
homegrown, politically motivat-
ed atrocities.
In the same way, I have tried
to understand our ability to
maintain the peace when we
have a change of top leadership.
How could Barack Obama
replace George W. Bush so
seamlessly? As Americans,
most of us take the transfer of
power for granted. I do not. It is
emblematic of what makes us
who we are even with our many
ethnicities and religious faiths.


It manifests the taproot of our
national character.
During a weekly commentary
in January 2009, leading up to
Obama's inauguration, CBS
Evening News chief
Washington correspondent and
"Face the Nation" host Bob
Schieffer, said: "As it has been
from the beginning, the old
president will go and the new
president will arrive for no other
reason than that it is the
expressed will of the American
people which is at once our
greatest strength and the core
principle on which America
came to be."'
I am convinced that the "core
principle," which also accounts
for our resilience in the face of
domestic atrocity, is our
unblinking commitment to the
concept and the practice of the
rule of law. For the rule of law
to prevail, argues Ronald Cass,


dean emeritus. Boston
University School of Law, there
must be the elements of consis-
tency, predictability, rules from
valid authority and transparency
of the law.
These elements are under-
pinned by the U.S. Constitution.
"The nature of the judicial
system is critical to the rule of
law," Cass writes. "Impartial
judges, governed by clear legal
rules, committed to enforcing
the rules as written, independent
of political influence are essen-
tial if law is to be a reliable
guide to individuals and a con-
straint on those in power." The
rule of law works because while
the judicial system circum-
scribes activity, the U.S.
Constitution and the Bill of
Rights and state constitutions
and their bill of rights limit the
power of government over the
individual.

Sinkhole concerns added



to property insurance bill


BY BRENT KALLESTAD
As'ctu'l.-kAlF I t) ':
TALLAHASSEE -
Lawmakers turned their
attention Tuesday to an
increasingly expensive prob-
lem of questionable sinkhole
claims that is driving up
insurance premiums for
Florida homeowners.
The Senate Banking and
Insurance Committee heard
testimony but took no imme-
*diate action on a bill (SB
408) similar to one passed
and vetoed last year. It's
aimed at making homeown-
ers' policies more affordable
by creating a more competi-
tive private insurance market.
"What I'm trying to do is
let the marketplace work,"
said Sen. Garrett Richter, a
Naples Republican who
chairs the committee.
"Consumers will chose the
product and company that


they want."
Richter successfully
steered through a compre-
hensive property insurance
bill (SB 2044) last year that
was supported by Insurance
Commissioner Kevin
McCarty.
Former Gov. Charlie Crist
said he vetoed the bill
because it was not consumer-
friendly enough.
The committee resuscitat-
ed the measure that Richter
said would reduce regulatory
pressure on insurance com-
panies and create more com-
petition a factor he hopes
will stabilize rates for con-
sumers.
"We have to address cost
drivers to protect consumers
from being overcharged and
insurance companies from
going under," Richter said
after the meeting.
The tone of the two-hour
hearing was far more busi-
ness-friendly than five years


ago. Lawmakers then scold-
ed insurers seeking higher
premiums in the aftermath of
eight destructive hurricanes
that clobbered Florida in
2004 and 2005.
Since the last major hurri-
cane hit Florida in 2005,
sinkhole claims have sky-
rocketed, totaling nearly $2
billion in the last four years.
Most of the claims have
come from Hernando,
Hillsborough and Pasco
counties.
Sinkhole claims cost poli-
cyholders across the state an
average of $120 last year.
They've tripled in the last
three years with two-thirds
coming from the three-coun-
ty region in west-central
Florida. There were 7,245
such claims in 2009.
Former Gov. Jeb Bush
vetoed a bill in June 2006
designed to increase the
availability and cut the cost
of sinkhole overage because


it duplicated provisions in a
broader property insurance
law he signed.
Sen. Mike Fasano, a New
Port Richey Republican
whose district includes
Hernando and Pasco coun-
ties, and Sen. Eleanor Sobel,
D-Hollywood, challenged
several late-filed amend-
ments they said were too
favorable to the insurance
industry.
Fasano said loosening the
reins on insurers would give
them freedom to refuse to
provide sinkhole coverage.
One amendment approved
by the panel would let insur-
ers send nonrenewal notices
90 days before a policy
expires instead of 100 days in
most cases now and as many
as 180 days for long-term
customers.
The committee adjourned
before completing work on
the bill, but plans to take it up
again in two weeks.

Chief justice: Fla. courts can't


stand more spending cuts


TALLAHASSEE (AP) -
Chief Justice Charles
Canady says Florida's courts
can't stand any more spend-
ing cuts nor can they contin-
ue to so heavily rely upon
fees from foreclosure cases


to pay their bills.
The state Supreme Court's
leader gave that assessment
to the Senate Judiciary
Committee on Tuesday.
Florida lawmakers are
facing a shortfall of $3.6 bil-


lion to $4.6 billion in the
.budget year that begins July
1.
Canady said it would be
very difficult for the courts,
which already have taken a
10 percent cut, to meet the


state's needs they get anoth-
er reduction.
The former congressman
and state legislator argued
that cutting the court system
could set back Florida's eco-
nomic recovery.

Thomas Baitinger and
Officer Jeffrey Yaslowitz,
were slain while helping
other officers serve a war-

Officials say Lacy had a

Deputies had been seek-

Florida legislative leaders OK one-day

governor's budget delay request


TALLAHASSEE (AP) -
Republican legislative lead-
ers have given Gov. Rick
Scott approval to delay his
budget proposals to lawmak-
ers by one day until Feb. 7.
Senate President Mike


Haridopolos and House
Speaker Dean Cannon on
Tuesday sent letters to the
new Republican governor
granting the extension.
Scott had written them
Monday asking for permis-


sion to hold off on his recom-
mendations until one day
past the Feb. 6 legal deadline
because it falls on a Sunday.
The Legislature is facing a
potential shortfall of $3.6 bil-
lion to $4.6 billion in the


budget year beginning July 1.
Scott plans to seek tax cuts
that would increase that
budget gap by another $2 bil-
lion or more. but says he'll
still propose a balanced
budget.


Fla. House challenges new redistricting

amendment approved in November


TALLAHASSEE (AP)
- The Florida House is
asking to join a lawsuit
challenging a new state
constitutional amendment
on congressional redistrict-
ing.
The federal court filing
in Miami drew criticism
Monday from Democrats.
They accused Republican
House leaders of trying to
thwart voters who


approved the Fair Districts
amendment by more than
60 percent in November.
The amendment bars
gerrymandering to benefit
political parties and incum-
bents. The House says it
would infringe on lawmak-
ers' redistricting authority.
The,Senate so far is not try-
ing to join the suit.
It was filed by U.S. Reps.
Corrine Brown. D-


Jacksonville, and Mario
Diaz-Balart, R-Miamni.
Voters approved a similar


amendment on legislative
redistricting, but it's not
being challenged.

President Obama:



Challenges are



'bigger than party'


BY BEN FELLER
AP WHITE HOUSE
CORRESPONDENT

WASHINGTON -
Confronting the reality of
divided government,
President Barack Obama
implored lawmakers of
both parties Tuesday night
to rally behind his vision
for creating jobs for an anx-
ious nation, declaring: "We
will move forward togeth-
er, or not at all."
In excerpts of his State of
the Union address, released
in advance by the White
House, the president cast
the challenges facing the
United States as bigger
than either party. His mes-
sage came as Obama him-
self was adjusting his agen-
da to the shifting power
dynamic in Washington,
with voters having given
Republicans control of the
House and a stronger voice
in the Senate and as the
2012 presidential campaign


was ready to start.
For a second straight
year, Obama's speech was
focusing overwhelmingly
on the nation's still-fragile
economy while leaving
many other important
domestic and foreign
affairs topics to compete
for briefer mentions. With
less than 40 percent of
Americans confident the
nation is moving in the
right direction, Obama was
using his biggest stage to
show he has ideas for
speeding up a sluggish
recovery.
"'At stake right now is not
who wins the next election.
After all, we just had an
election," the president
said. "At stake is whether
new jobs and industries
take root in this country or
somewhere else."
He was to deliver his
speech at 9 p.m. EST to a
television audience in the
tens of millions and, in
front of him, the members


of the new-look Congress.
Over his shoulder would be
a reminder of the shift in
power on Capitol Hill: new
Republican House Speaker
John Boehner.
Obama's address was
built around promoting
concentrated spending in
areas such as education,
research and transporta-
tion, promises of reduc-
tions in the nation's stag-
gering debt and reforms of
government at a time when
voters are tired of bailouts
and regulation.


House G(


pre-Oban

BY ANDREW TAYLOR
ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON -
Moving to keep a campaign
promise to slash the federal
budget, Republicans con-
trolling the House Tuesday
went on record to return
most domestic agencies to
2008 budget levels in place
before President Barack
Obama took office.
The 256-165 vote came
on a symbolic measure but
is an opening salvo in an
upcoming battle over the
budget that will pit the
House GOP against
Obama and the
Democratic-controlled
Senate.
It came just hours
before Obama was to issue
his own proposal: calling
for a five-year freeze for
most domestic agencies at
current levels. That's more
than $80 billion a year
higher than the level of
cuts Republicans want.
Obama -als6 reportedly
will call for lawmakers to
back a five-year plan put
forth by Defense
Secretary Robert Gates to
save $78 billion in defense
spending, an idea that has
many Republicans
anxious.
The immediate issue is
how to wrap up the long
overdue budget for the
2011 budget year that
began in October. A battle
over the 2012 battle will
follow on a parallel track
starting with Obama's
budget submission next
month.
The vote comes on a
nonbinding resolution that
promises cuts approaching
20 percent of the budgets
for agencies like the

In this Jan. 4, photo, now House Majority Leader Eric
Cantor of Va. speaks to reporters on Capitol Hill in
Washington. Cantor on Jan. 18, promised a vote next
week to back up the GOP's promise to cut spending
for most Cabinet agencies back to the levels in place
before President Barack Obama took office. That'fs

departments when Congress
wraps up the budget for the
current fiscal year. The
White House warns that
such cuts would mean fur-
loughs of tens of thousands
of federal workers.
The actual GOP cuts
would be made in a fol-
low-up spending bill slat-
ed to advance next month
and are sure to encounter
strong resistance from the
Democratic-controlled
Senate and from Obama.
Despite Tuesday's action,
the cuts are a long way
from becoming law; in
fact, Democrats may have
a tactical edge since
Republicans are reluctant


to spark a government
shutdown if their demands
aren't met.
Republicans say
Tuesday's measure is the
first step in keeping a
campaign promise to cut
$100 billion from
Obama's budget for the
current year. The actual
savings would be less -
about $84 billion since
Obama's budget increases
were never passed. And
because the budget year
has been under way since
Oct. 1, GOP leaders say
they can't deliver the cuts
by the Sept. 30 end of the
fiscal year; instead, they
say they will spread them
over a full calendar year.

Gitmo detainee gets life sentence in embassy plot


BY LARRY NEUMEISTER
AND TOM HAYS
AssOCIATED PRFss

NEW YORK A judge sen-
tenced the first Guantanamo
detainee to have a U.S. civilian
trial to life in prison Tuesday, say-
ing anything he suffered at the
hands of the CIA and others "pales
in comparison to the suffering and
the horror" caused by the bombing
of two U.S. embassies in Africa in
1998.
U.S. District Judge Lewis A.
Kaplan sentenced Ahmed Ghailani
to life, calling the attacks "horrif-
ic" and saying the deaths and dam-
age they caused far outweighs.
"any and all considerations that
have been advanced on behalf of
the defendant." He also ordered
Ghailani to pay $33 million in
restitution.
Kaplan announced the sentence
in a packed Manhattan courtroom
after calling it a day of justice for
the defendant, as well as for the
families of 224 people who died in
the al-Qaida bombings, including
a dozen Americans, and thousands
more who were injured.
As survivors and victims' loved
ones spoke behind him, many in
tears, Ghailani bowed his head and
closed his eyes while gripping the
edge of the defense table with both
hands.
The judge said he wanted a sen-
tence that "makes it crystal clear
that others engaged or contemplat-
ing engaging in deadly acts of ter-
rorism risk enormously serious
consequences." He said he was


"By his actions, Ahmed Ghailani has marked
himself as an enemy of society, as evil. He
should never be permitted to return to
society."


satisfied that Ghailani knew and
intended that people would be
killed as a result of his actions and
the conspiracy he joined.
"This crime was so horrible," he
said. "It was a cold-blooded killing
and maiming of innocent people
on an enormous scale. It wrecked
the lives of thousands more ... who
had their lives changed forever.
The purpose of the crime was to
create terror by causing death and
destruction on a scale that was
hard to imagine in 1998 when it
occurred."
Ghailani, 36, was convicted late
last year of conspiring to destroy
government buildings but acquit-
ted of more than 200 counts of
murder and dozens of other
charges. The charge carries a
mandatory minimum of 20 years
in prison and a maximum of life.
He had asked for leniency, saying
he never intended to kill anyone
and he was tortured.
Ghailani, a Tanzanian, was cap-
tured in Pakistan in 2004 and later
interrogated overseas at a secret
CIA-run camp. He was moved to
Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, in 2006
before being transferred to New

York for prosecution in 2009.
The trial late last year at a lower
Manhattan courthouse had been
viewed as a test for President
Barack Obama's aim of putting
other terrorism detainees -
including self-professed Sept. 11
mastermind Khalid Sheik
Mohammed on trial on U.S.
soil.
Kaplan rejected requests
Ghailani's pleas for leniency, say-
ing whatever Ghailani suffered at
the hands of the CIA and others
"pales in comparison to the suffer-
ing and the horror he and his con-
federates caused."
Evidence at trial showed that
Ghailani helped purchase bomb
components prior to the attacks,
including 15 gas tanks designed to
enhance the power of the bombs,
. along with one of the bomb vehi-
cles. Written descriptions of FBI
interviews quoted Ghailani as say-
ing he realized a week before the
bombings that they were intended
to strike a U.S. embassy.
The jury did not see those
descriptions, but they were sub-
mitted for Kaplan to consider for
sentencing.


The FBI also said Ghailani was
trained by al-Qaida after the twin
1998 attacks in Nairobi, Kenya,
and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and
became a bodyguard and cook for
Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan
before becoming an expert docu-
ment forger for the terrorist organ-
ization.
Ghailani's lawyers argued that
he was duped by friends into par-
ticipating in the attack and was
upset when he saw the damage
done.
A group of 11 emotional sur-
vivors of the attacks and family
members of those who died spoke
at the sentencing, including Sue
Bartley, a Washington-area resi-
dent who lost her husband, Julian
Leotis Bartley Sr., then U.S. con-
sul general to Kenya, and her son,
Julian "Jay" Bartley Jr.
Bartley said the attacks were
still fresh in her mind and "excru-
ciatingly painful. What remains is
a lingering, unsettling feeling that
is compounded by grief, deep sad-
ness and anger. The pain is with
me every day. Often times it is
unthinkable."
Justina L. Mdobilu said she was
the only Tanzanian victim to
attend the sentencing and believed
others stayed away because it was
too painful.
"Nobody wants to come. People
are upset. People are going
through post-traumatic syn-
drome," she said.
James Ndeda, of Nairobi, asked
Kaplan to order Ghailani to prison
for a year for each of the victims.
"Ghailani and his accomplices


shattered our lives," said Ndeda,
who suffered a skull fracture, as
well as eye and back problems that
continue 12 years later.
Ghailani is the fifth person to be
sentenced. Four others were sen-
tenced to life in prison after a 2001
trial in Manhattan federal court.
Bin Laden is charged in the indict-
ment, as well.
Before sentencing, defense
attorney Peter Quijano portrayed
his client as a hero, saying he had
provided U.S. authorities with
"intelligence and information that
arguably saved lives and I submit
that is not hyperbole."
He also said Qhailani cried
when he learned about the attacks.
Ghailani declined to speak on his
own behalf.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael
Farbiarz called Ghailani "a man
who cannot muster a moment of
contrition."
He said the attacks were "an act
of horror and brutality and terror
on a scale that is unfathomable,
that words don't reach. He took
away hundreds and hundreds of
lives. In response to that, you
should take away his freedom and
take it away forever."
Farbiarz added: "By his actions,
Ahmed Ghailani has marked him-
self as an enemy of society, as evil.
He should never be permitted to
return to society."
Outside the courthouse immedi-
ately after the life sentence was
announced, U.S. Attorney Preet
Bharara said: "Today, our goal was
achieved, as Ahmed Ghailani will
never again breathe free air."

Jackson County superintendent
of schools. According to Kenny
Griffin, Centers has continued to
serve the community in many
other ways. He is active with vet-
erans' associations, several civic
clubs, and with youth. For
instance, he established honor
guards in schools and communi-
ties, and is currently working to
create another one.
Callie Wooden spends many
hours with the sick, going beyond
the call of duty to assist them,
said Sharon McMillion. "She
never says no to anybody."
McMillion said Wooden "gives
of her care, time, money and
expertise ... she speaks, sings
prays and helps others. She is
concerned about the underprivi-
leged."
The Rev. William Harvey was
nominated by his congregation
and other ministers. They said he
has given of his money, time and
even his home to help others, and
that he has been "a taxi driver"
when needed. A pastor of
Buckhorn Church, he has been
known to pay other people's light
bills, doctor bills, and help in
many other ways. He is a great
listener, as well, the nominating
individuals said.
Henrietta Wadsworth has a lot
of concern for cancer patients.
according to those who nominat-
ed her, and has gone far out of her
way to help. She gives of her time
and resources. Although elderly
and not in the best health herself,
she is always looking for some-
one new to take care of. She is a
member of the New Mt. Olive
Baptist Church, serving as an
usher for the sanctuary and the
2nd West Association. She's
described as "a leaning post" of
the west end community. Her
motto is "Not what somebody
can do for me, but what I can do
for somebody."
Sharon McMillion was nomi-
nated by her husband,. John A.
McMillion Sr. Despite having a
sick and disabled son, a disabled
husband, and having some dis-


ability of her own to contend
with, he said, Mrs. McMillion is
always looking to help others as
well. She gives material things,
and also gives of her time. She
checks often on the elderly in the
community, and sits with them
when they need company. She
often matches the elderly with
workers who can perform various
tasks needed on an occasional
basis.
"She is truly a jewel beyond
compare," Mr. McMillion said.
She brings attention to the
plight of others so that others will
know of it and be able to reach
out and help, he said. When the
need is great in someone's life,
she turns to her church and other
churches and organizations to
find people who may be able to
help. She points people to the
appropriate government agencies
for assistance, as well, and has
worked to start scholarships for
Jackson County students at
Chipola. Three. students have
already benefited from that
effort, Mr. McMillion said.
Steve and Mary Ann Hutton
were nominated as a couple.
They are the chartering members
of the Troop 170 Boy Scouts in
Marianna, according to
Jacquelyn McArthur. The boys in
their troop have grown and
learned much as a direct result of
their contact with the Huttons,
McArthur said.
The couple gives financially, as
well as of their time and other
personal resources, McArthur
said. The two have involved the
youngsters in community activi-
ties and projects to such an extent
that the Scouts are now of special
interest to many they've gotten to
know. The community bonds
help "form a cohesiveness and a
strong common bond among the
children, families and the com-
munity," McArthur said. She also
spoke of their honesty and
integrity in their personal lives.
Another person who nominat-
ed the Huttons, Nell Wester,
wrote that the Huttons dedicate
their lives to helping Scouts and
their families, and to serving the
community in many ways. The
boys, Wester said, have great


examples to follow in the
Huttons.
Teacher Aundrea Sellars was
nominated by the clerks at the
Marianna post office. Debra
Calloway submitted the nomina-
tion 'on their behalf. Calloway
said Sellars has participated in
several civic endeavors last year,
and in many other years past.
"She positively impacts the
children she teaches at Golson
Elementary by demonstrating
community ideals, such as chari-
ty, civic cooperation, beatifica-
tion, patriotism, leadership skills,
as well as teaching them the
basics," Calloway wrote.
Sellars decorates the post
office lobby with art, always
incorporating the children's art-
work from her class. She has also
served as chairperson for may
years with the American Cancer
Society's Relay for Life program
in Marianna.
She also went on a mission trip
during her summer break last
year, and leads church classes as
well. Casey Roach said Sellars
has been on several missions to
Nicaragua and Haiti. She always
includes children in her church-
related events, said Roach, the
director of children's ministry at
First Baptist Church in Marianna.
Homer Hirt was nominated by
several parties. He is the program
chairman for the Chipola
Regional Arts Association and is
nominated by Dr. Jerry Kandzer
for his work in that organization.
He was also nominated by
retired minister. Bill Pevy. As a
church member, Pevy said. Hirt
has been a lay leader and held a
number of key positions in the
church. When his church was
between ministers, Pevy said,
Hirt made sure to line up speak-
ers for worship services.
The Jackson County
Republican Party Executive
Committee also nominated Hirt,
saying he shares with others his
time, talents, and his vast knowl-
edge of'the workings and history
of Jackson County.
"He is a veteran and very proud
patriot," said county GOP chair-
man Clint Pate.
Pate also attached a list of var-


ious organizations Hirt is
involved in, a list that ranged
from the Apalachicola-
Chattahoochee-Flint Stakeholders
Group to the Jackson County Jays
baseball team.
Chad Taylor also nominated
Hirt, saying they had worked
together on many important
issues in Jackson County and
throughout Florida, Georgia and
Alabama. Hirt, Taylor said, vol-
unteers for many worthy causes,
particularly the ACF waterways
system.
The Chipola Historical Trust
also nominated Hirt, in part
because of his "extraordinary"
knowledge about the history of
Jackson County and his willing-
ness to share what he knows.
Robbie Taylor was nominated
by James Gosnell, pastor of
Praise Life Ministries Church in
Grand Ridge. Gosnell said Taylor
worked with Jackson County Fire
Rescue for 24 years before being
diagnosed with Crohn's disease.
Even though Taylor still battles
this, he continues to volunteer
seven days a week at Partners for
Pets. Taylor cuts grass for the
elderly and disabled, Gosnell
said, and delivers firewood to
them at no charge. Taylor also
does maintenance chores at the
church and takes its weekly food
contributions to Chipola
Ministries. "It is amazing to
watch him truly be a disciple of
Jesus Christ knowing the pain
and suffering he endures daily."
Gosnell wrote.
Partners for Pets also nominat-
ed Taylor. He cleans kennels,
feeds and waters the animals and
does many other things for the
organization. He helped get the
site improved, for instance, -and
managed to find someone who
was willing to save the organiza-
tion $3,000 in labor when a new
heating and cooling system need-
ed to be installed.
When the organization has a
yard sale, Taylor picks up the
donated items and works several
days to make sure they're clean
and in good working order before
the sale. He has fostered many
dogs when there was a shortage
of room, or if a particular animal


needed extra attention. He picks
up supplies, updates the animal
adoption board posted at a local
store, cleans gutters, takes ani-
mals to vets, and comes in on
Sunday if needed. Taylor has
volunteered 537 hours since
August, the Partners staff noted.
Taylor's children also nominat-
ed him, one describing his father
as a "very humble and loving
man" who takes care of his aged
mother and grandmother. He also
cuts and gives away five or six
truckloads of firewood to people
at a time, according to his chil-
dren.
Covenant Hospice nominated
Larry Cobb. He is active in his
church, Evangel Worship Center,
he sponsors a college ministry,
and is a mentor for the youth. He
also is missions director at
Evangel, reaching out to the
homeless in the local community.
Covenant employees call him
their "silent volunteer." because
he never wants acknowledgement
or recognition for his work.
"He is a humble man who
wishes to make a difference in his
world and others," Covenant rep-
resentatives wrote about Cobb.
"We are unable to document all
of his hours because he says 'It's
not about the hours, it's about the
need,'" they continued.
He was instrumental in coordi-
nating his Honor Bound Men's
Group's effort to continue the
work of the Covenant Yard
Angels program. It provides lawn
service and home repairs to
Covenant patients and families
who cannot afford or are no
longer able to do the upkeep
themselves. He built more than
10 wheelchair ramps for local
patients. He also helped
Covenant move its office.
Cobb also stops frequently to
help people he encounters along
the roadways who need help. He
helped a local business owner run
his shop after an injury forced the
man to convalesce for an extend-
ed period.
Tickets to the chamber banquet
are still available. Call 482-8060

Illinois high court will hear Rahm Emanuel appeal


BY DEANNA BELLANDI
ASSOcIAIWD PRESS

CHICAGO Illinois' highest
court agreed Tuesday to take
Rahm Emanuel's appeal of a
decision that threw him off the
ballot for Chicago mayor and
ordered election officials not to
print any mayoral ballots with-
out Emanuel's name.
State Supreme Court justices
agreed to expedite the case, but
they gave no specific time frame.
They planned to review legal
briefs only and would not hold
oral arguments.
Emanuel has asked the cpurt
to overturn a lower ruling that
pulled his name off the ballot
because he had not lived in the
city for a year. His attorneys
called Monday's decision
"squarely inconsistent" with pre-
vious rulings on the issue.
The moves by the high court
bought valuable time for
Emanuel. The Chicago Board of
Elections had said it would begin
printing ballots without his name
as early as Tuesday, with the
election less than a month away.
Absentee ballots were to be sent
out within days.
Messages left for election offi-
cials were not immediately
returned.
"I'm confident in the argu-
ment we're making about the
fact that I never lost my residen-
cy." Emanuel said Tuesday at a


campaign stop where he picked
up an endorsement from the
Teamsters Joint Council.
Emanuel said the order on the
ballot printing was "an impor-
tant first step in ensuring that
voters are -not disenfranchised
and that they ultimately get to
choose the next Mayor of
Chicago."
In their appeal, Emanuel's
attorneys called Monday's ruling
"one of the most far-reaching
election law rulings" ever issued
in Illinois, not only because of
its effect on the mayoral race but
for "the unprecedented restric-
tion" it puts on future candi-
dates.
His lawyers raise several
points, including that the appeals
court applied a stricter definition
of "residency" than the one used
for voters. They say Illinois
courts have never required can-
didates to be physically present
in the state to seek office there.
By adopting this new require-
ment, the court rejected state law
allowing people to keep their
residence in Illinois even if they
are away doing work for the
state or federal government, the
appeal said.
Emanuel, a former congress-
man who represented Chicago,
was gone while he served as
President Barack Obama's chief
of staff for nearly two years.
The new standard also sets a
"significant limitation on ballot


access" that denies voters the
right to choose certain candi-
dates, the appeal said.
Just hours after Monday's rul-
ing, the campaign to replace
retiring Mayor Richard M.
Daley began to look like an actu-
al race.
For months, three of the main
candidates struggled for atten-
tion while Emanuel outpolled
and outraised them, blanketed
the airwaves with television ads
and gained the endorsement of
former President Bill Clinton,
who came to town to campaign
for Emanuel.
Former Sen. Carol Moseley
Braun, city Clerk Miguel del
Valle and former Chicago
schools chief Gery Chico sud-
denly found themselves in the
spotlight and trying to win
over Emanuel supporters who
suddenly may be up for grabs.
Even as Emanuel vowed to
fight the decision, Braun urged
voters to join her campaign
"with your time, your effort or
your money."
Reporters surrounding Chico
outside a restaurant asked him if
he was a front-runner some-
thing that seemed inconceivable
last week when a Chicago
Tribune/WGN poll showed him
with the support of just 16 percent
of voters surveyed compared with
a whopping 44 percent for
Emanuel. The same poll showed
Braun with 21 percent support.

ment of Teamsters Joint Council 25 in his bid for mayor of Chicago
Tuesday, Jan. 25 in Chicago. AP Photo/M. Spencer Green


and del Valle with 7 percent.
"I'm trying to get every vote I
can from everybody in this city,"
said Chico, who released records
last week showing he had just
over $2 million at his disposal,
about one-fourth of the money
available to Emanuel.
In their 2-1 ruling Monday, an
appeals court said Emanuel met
the requirements to vote in
Chicago but not to run for mayor
because he had been living in
Washington.
Challengers to Emanuel's can-
didacy argued the Democrat did
not qualify because he rented out
his Chicago home and moved his
family to Washington to work


for President Barack Obama for
nearly two years. Emanuel -
who quit his job and moved back
to Chicago in October after
Daley announced he would not
seek a seventh term has said
he always intended to return to
Chicago and was living in
Washington at the president's
request.
If he doesn't win the appeal,
the race takes on a whole new
dynamic. In a city with huge
blocs of black, white and
Hispanic voters, the Chicago
Tribune/WGN poll showed
Emanuel leading among all 6f
them, even though his three top
rivals are minorities.


Friends perplexed by man's role in police shooting


BY COREY WILLIAMS
ASSOCIATED PRESS

DETROIT After being arrested
on drug charges nearly a decade ago,
Lamar Moore told authorities he
made a mistake and asked for a sec-
ond chance "to prove I am worthy."
He got what he asked for, served
his probation and largely stayed out
of trouble. Until Sunday, when he
strode into a Detroit police station
with a shotgun and began firing at
officers, wounding four before he
as shot and killed.
"We're trying to figure out what'it
was to set him off like that," said
Paula Hodges, who was close
enough to Moore that he affection-
ately called her "grandma" even
though they had no blood ties.
"We can't even imagine him doing
that," Hodges said Monday after a
sleepless night and a morning that
failed to bring answers about the 38-


year-old Army veteran's behavior.
"He just wasn't, to me, that kind of
person. I have nothing but praise for
him."
Chief Ralph Godbee also slept lit-
tle following the shooting in the 6th
precinct lobby, making visits to the
wounded officers and a return to the
blood-splattered station.
"There's nothing in this that makes
sense at all," Godbee said Monday.
"The perpetrator's intent was evil."
Godbee noted that a relative of
Moore's was scheduled to be sen-
tenced Monday for a double homi-
cide. But how or if-- that ties into
the shooting may never be clear.
"It's a no-win situation. For those
that are living they have to deal with
it," said Hodges, who has been acting
as a spokeswoman for Moore's fam-
ily.
The last time relatives saw him
was when he left his sister's house in
Detroit around 2:45 p.m. Sunday, she


said. Surveillance video shows
Moore entering the precinct about
4:20 p.m., then beginning to shoot.
One blast caught a sergeant in the
chest area of her bulletproof vest. At
least one shot grazed two other offi-
cers in their heads. Precinct
Commander Brian Davis, who was
shot in the lower back, was the most
seriously injured. Through the sur-
prise and mayhem, Davis and other
officers fired back. Godbee said he
has reviewed video of the shooting
and saw the officers' "acts of hero-
ism."
"In a split second their lives
changed," Godbee said. "These men
and women .. .performed to the stan-
dard that they were trained to."
Two of the four officers have been
released frogn the hospital. Davis and
Sgt. David Anderson were in stable
condition Monday.
Like other precincts in the city, the
6th has no metal detectors at the


entrance and visitors are permitted to
come in and talk face-to-face with
police sitting behind a large desk.
Godbee said precinct security will be
upgraded to include wand scanners.
Hodges said Moore's family
learned that he died either on the way
to the hospital or shortly after arriv-
ing there.
Despite her love for Moore,
Hodges said she can't fault police.
"I feel that the officers did what
they had to do," she said. 'They may
not have wanted to. but they did what
they had to do."
Moore had been concerned for
months over his younger brother's
criminal case, said Hodges, who
identified Moore's brother as Venson
Hibbit. Hibbit pleaded guilty earlier
this month to two counts of second-
degree murder and one count of
assault with intent to commit murder,
stemming from a shooting last March
at a Detroit auto repair shop.

The 2010 baseball season
wasn't among the most
memorable during Chipola
coach Jeff Johnson's 15-
year tenure as the Indians'
head man.
There were injuries to
key players, inconsistencies
on the field..just a 27-21
season record, and a lack of
locker room harmony that
the coach blamed for much
of his team's woes.


baseball set for 2011


The Indians finished a
distant second in the
Panhandle Conference
behind Gulf Coast, and
were eliminated in the state
tournament after just three
games.
With this season just
days away from beginning,
Chipola is looking to put
last year in the rear view.
"I thought we were very
talented last year. It was
one of the most talented
teams we've had," Johnson
said. "I think that shows


that if you don't have good
chemistry and togetherness
and trust for one another, if
you don't work hard on a
daily basis or have good
leadership, you're not
going to have a very good
club."
Those were the issues
Johnson said prevented a
gifted group of Indians
from tapping into their full
potential in 2010.
This season, correcting
those issues will be key to
Chipola regaining its place


at the top of the Panhandle
Conference standings.
"There's a certain level
of ability that you need to
have, but what it comes
down to is guys enjoying
playing with each other,"
the coach said. "You have
to be fundamentally sound
and competitive to be suc-
cessful. That's what we're
trying to accomplish with
this group now."

FlRoKIIR)AN SPORI! I-`l01( R

With a talented and expe-
rienced core from last
year's Panhandle
Conference and state
championship team, the
Chipola Lady Indians enter
into the 2011 season with
lofty goals and large expec-
tations.
Chipola went 49-13 last
season en'route to becom-
ing Panhandle and state
champs, and won two
games at the national tour-
nament before being elimi-
nated.
With nine players return-
ing from that team, includ-
ing heavy hitters Ariel van
Hook and Andrea Sullivan,
as well as two-way star
Brittany Black. (C liip.I.,
comes into the season with
a pretty big national pro-
file.
"Our expectations are
very high." Lady Indians
coach Belinda Hendrix
said. "We've got a real
good core, a good group of
girls. Our goals are very
high. I expect us to do real-
ly well if we can all stay
, ilil, I think we're defi-
nitely better than we were
last year. But I can't say yet
if we'll be as good as our
national title team. We just
have to see them in game
situations. With that nation-
al championship team,
nothing bothered them.
They were very comIlposed
;t all limes."


The Lady Indians won
their national title in 2007,
and 201 1 could present
their best opportunity since
to replicate the feat.
But Chipola does have
some holes to fill, with key
players like Michelle
Hewett, Trish Bliss, Nikki
Roddy, and catcher Kellie
Todd all graduating.
Of all of those, Todd may
prove the most challenging
to replace.
"I think the one position
that's going to be key is
catcher," Hendrix said.
"That's pretty much the
anchor of our team. The
catcher controls the team."
Freshman Tiffany
Rowlette of Lakeland and
Santa Fe transfer Devin
Matthews will combine to
handle the catching duties,
with Rowlette the more
defensive catcher and
Matthews the bigger offen-
sive weapon, according to
Hendrix.
Ace pitcher Emma
Stevenson also is gone
from last year's team, but
the freshman All-
Conference star Black
seems poised to step into
the ace role.
Black had a 19-4 record'
last season with a 2.07
ERA, losing only twice in
conference by one run
each.
She was also good at the
plate, batting .313 with
three home runs and 30
R 131.
"If there's one kid I think


will really step out this
year, it's Brittany Black,"
Hendrix said. "I think she's
going to be incredible.,
During the fall, she pitched
tremendously. We're look-
ing for her to carry the
pitching staff."
Black had sonime special
moments during the fall,
shutting down Division-I
powers Georgia and
Florida in exhibitions, lim-
iting the two elite SEC
lineups to three hits in
seven innings, including
no-hitting UF in four
innings.
"She's pitching better
than I've ever seen her
pitch before," Hendrix said
of Black. "She's going to
be a force to be reckoned
with."
Chipola will also be
loaded in the lineup, with
van Hook and Sullivan
both returning after mon-
ster seasons as freshmen.
Sullivan was the state
tournament's most valuable
player, batting .320 with
seven home runs and 30
RBI, while van Hook bat-
ted .381 and led the team in
homers (10) and RBI (58).
The Lady Indians also
return great speed, with
Dana Cauthen, Selentia
Pittman, and Hannah
Lovestrand combining to
swipe 100 bases last sea-
son.
Pittman will bat ninth in
the order, and Cauthen will
move into Hewett's spot in
lead-off to give Chipola a


dynamic speed duo in the
lineup.
Freshman centerfielder
Ebony Wright will give
Chipola another speed
threat in the lineup as well.
The Lady Indians ,will
also get a boost from third
baseman Sayumi Akimine,
who was at Chipola last
year but didn't make it in
time to be eligible.
"She's our best infield-
er," Hendrix said of
Akimine. "She's also got
great bat control, and she's
really solid at the plate."
Transfer Samantha Rich
and Matthews will help
provide some pop in the
middle of the order.
"Our depth chart is a lot
better than it was last year,"
Hendrix said. "We've got
some more options to play
with. We're very athletic
this year. It almost reminds
me of the national title
team. With that team, you
could look at the bench and
find somebody to put in
place of the starter and not"
lose anything. That's kind
of the feeling I get with this
team."
Perhaps the biggest chal-
lenge for this team is
replacing Stevenson, who
was dominant last year
with 21 wins and a 1.05
ERA.
Sophomore Elizabeth
Krauser will step into a
larger role this season in
the circle for Chipola,

Bulldogs rout


Braves 4-0


BY SHELIA MADE
FLORIDAN CORRESPONDENT
It was a banner night for
Marianna High School
Bulldogs soccer, as the
'Dawgs pulled off a solid
4-0 win in the first round of
district tournament on
Monday night in Marianna.
The victory over Walton
was the first of the season
for the Bulldogs; with the
previous two matches end-
ing in draws.
For the playoffs,
Marianna coach Garyn
Waller went with his solid
defensive players, JT


Meadows, James
Morrison, and David White
in front of goalkeeper
Michael Mader.
Experienced midfielders
Stevie Blanchette, Seth
Gilley, Paul Gochenaur,
and Jude Han took the field
behind forwards Cody
Barfield, Zac Davis, and
Jimmy Lien.
The first half of play was
a defensive battle, with
both teams taking shots on
goal, and both coming
away empty.

Lady Tigers win


after slow start


BY DUSIIN KENT
FI.ORIDAN Si'OR,- EDITOR

The Graceville Lady
Tigers overcame a slow start
to take a 48-33 victory over
the Marianna Lady
Bulldogs on Monday night
in Graceville.
Marianna led 13-4 after
one period, but the Lady
Tigers rallied to tie the gaune
at 16-16 at halftime, then
used a dominant third quar-
ter to seize control.
"If you take away the first
quarter," Graceville coach
Jon Habali said, "it went
pretty nice."
Mychea Williams had 23
points to lead Graceville,
including 10 in the decisive
third period.
Jessica McClendon.
added 10 points and 10
rebounds, and Wynterra
Pittman had nine points and
12 rebounds.
Shamiqua Davies led
Marianna with 10 points,
.with Treshae Patterson


adding nine.
With the win, the Lady
Tigers improved to 18-5 on
the season.
Habali said he was
pleased with the win, but
disturbed at his team's latest
trend of starting slow.
"The last few games,
we've been playing three
good quarters of basketball,"
he said. "We're coming out
flat, and having a hard time
really staying up with the
tempo of the other teams.
"In the first quarter, we
weren't running the break or
getting back on defense. In
the second quarter, we start-
ed to put the effort forward.
We're winning ugly, but
we've got about a week-
and-a-half to really prepare
to get our legs under us for
four strong quarters."
That's when the District
2-2A tournament gets
underway in Grand Ridge.

"We knew coming into
the game that something
had .to give. We tied
Walton the previous two
times, but we knew that
couldn't be the case in the
playoffs," he said. "We
came out a little slow to
start the game, and Walton
probably out-played us in
the first half. We knew if
we picked it up in the sec-
ond half, we would be
, okay, and that's what we
did. After we scored the
first goal, it was a big
momentum swing, and it
just got better from there."

going to come."

Indians
Continued From Page 1B
familiar faces for the Indians
this season, with first base-
man/outfielder Michael
Revell the only full-time
regular position player
returning from last year's
team.
Johnny Cristi is the only
returned on the pitching staff
for Chipola.
Sophomore reserves
Tyrone Dawson and Adam
Bigale also return.
"It's really a brand-new
group, so it's going to take
us some time," Johnson said.
"We've probably got the
toughest schedule we've
ever played, so we under-
stand that we're probably
going to lose some games
here and there because of
the competition level we're
playing. In the grand
scheme of things, we hope it
will make us better come
conference time."
Chipola will open the sea-
son on Friday against State
College of Florida, the pre-
season top-ranked team in
the state, in St. Petersburg.
The Indians, who are
ranked No. 2 in the presea-
son FCCAA poll, will take
on state No. 2 Miami-Dade
and St. Petersburg on
Saturday in Clearwater, and
finish the weekend on
Sunday against
Hillsborough in St.
Petersburg.
Although Chipola will
sport an almost completely
new collection of position
players when it takes the
field, Johnson said he
believes his lineup can be
pretty formidable.
"We said coming in that
we've got a chance to be a
very good offensive team,
and that's still probably the
strength of the team," he
said. "We're not swinging it
right now as well as we need
to, but we will. We've also
got a little depth with our
position players. That's
probably the strength of the
team."
Johnson said the lineup
isn't perfect, but he loves the
_balance that his position


players should bring.
"The bad thing is we don't
have a lot of speed, but the
good thing is that they've all
got a chance to hit at the top
of the order," the coach said.
"We have several guys who
can hit in the 2-5 holes, so
we can basically just put
whoever is hot in those
spots. We've got some pop
in the bat."
The Indians will also have
a new bat literally.
The old aluminum bat
used at the college level has
been altered for safety pur-
poses to reduce the speed
with which balls jump off
the bat.
The result will likely be a
decrease in the number of
home runs hit and, accord-
ing to Johnson, perhaps a
change in coaching tactics.
"I think it's really going to
shock the baseball world
with how many fewer home
runs are going to be hit," the
coach said. "I think some-
thing had to be done, but this
may be a little severe.
"You're probably going to
have to hit-and-run a little
more instead of just going
station-to-station, waiting
for the big home run. You'll
have to do a little more
coaching and situational
base-running and stuff like
that."
The change is most cer-
tainly being welcomed by
pitchers, although Johnson
said his primary concern for
his hurlers has nothing to do
with the bats.
With Cristi the only
known quantity on the staff,
the depth of the pitching
staff is likely the biggest
question mark for the
Indians.
However, Johnson said
that's usually the case for
him anyway.
"Depth in the pitching
staff is always an issue," he
said. "If you had 20 on the
team, I don't know if you'd
have enough. It's the vari-
able of not knowing exactly
what you've got. I think our
guys can be real good, but
we've got a lot of work to
do. Their ability level is just
fine; now it gets to how
tough and competitive they
are."


"I think it's really

going to shock
the baseball
world with how
many fewer

home runs are
going to be hit."

-Jeff Johnson,
Chipola head coach

Johnson said that he'd
give between six and eight
pitchers opportunities to
start early on, and then weed
out who should be the regu-
lar starters and who should
go to the bullpen.
"We probably don't have
the top-end velocity arms,
but we've got some guys
with pitchability," Johnson
said.
The coach also has a team
he likes, but one that still has
much room to grow into the
type outfit that can reclaim
Chipola's dominance in the
Panhandle and in the state.
"The thing I'm preaching
is that it doesn't matter how
talented you are, you have to
depend on each other,"
Johnson said. "One person
has to work as hard as the
other. If you do that, and
learn to trust the coaches and
each other, all of that will
help us be a better team."
Johnson said the biggest
statewide competition this
year would likely come
from State College of
Florida and Miami-Dade,
with Northwest Florida
State perhaps presenting the
biggest challenge in the
"Panhandle.
One thing the coach said
was key was to not have a
repeat of the difficult start of
last season.
"We learned last year that
you can't put yourself in too
big of a hole early," Johnson
said. "It's a marathon and
not a sprint. But we've got
some good kids here. I think
this group enjoys each other
and has a chance to do some
good stuff. If we don't win
this thing, I'll be disappoint-
ed. I'll tell you that."

now to talk about possibly
playing Rafael Nadal in
the Australian Open final,
and with good reason.
After all, he's playing
Novak Djokovic in the
semifinals.
Federer and Nadal have
dominated the Grand Slam
tennis, winning 21 of the
last 23 titles. But Djokovic
is dangerous, and Federer
knows his one-match-at-a-
time mantra is sound strat-
egy.
"He takes it to the oppo-
nent," Federer said.
Federer routed Stanislas
Wawrinka 6-1, 6-3, 6-3
Tuesday in the first all-
Swiss quarterfinal at a
major. Djokovic eliminat-
ed Wimbledon finalist
Tomas Berdych 6-1, 7-6
(5), 6-1 in the night match.
On the women's side,
Caroline Wozniacki beat
Francesca Schiavone 3-6,
6-3, 6-3 in one quarterfi-
nal, and Li Na defeated
Andrea Petkovic 6-2, 6-4
in the other.


It was at this stage of the
2008 Australian Open that
Djokovic beat Federer
before going on to win his
first and only Grand Slain
singles title. Federer also
lost to Djokovic after hav-
ing two match points in
the U.S. Open semifinals
last September. It was a
lapse that cost Federer.
"I was playing good
enough to win," Federer
said. "But I was a bit con-
fused mentally, maybe,
because we played the
second session. ... Maybe
I just felt like I have to get
out of this match as quick
as I could to save energy
to play Rafa the next day. I
think it ended up hurting
me losing the match at the
end."
It ended a sequence for
Federer of six straight
finals appearances in New
York.
And then Djokovic lost
to Nadal in the final, giv-
ing the Spaniard his first
U.S. Open title. That set
him on the path toward his
Rafa Slam Nadal is
aiming to be the first man
since Rod Laver in 1969
to hold all four major titles
at once.

Federer has twice won
three consecutive majors,
only to be deprived by
Nadal both times at the
French Open.
Nadal plays the night
quarterfinal Wednesday


against David Ferrer. He
has an 11-3 lead in head-
to-heads. A win could set
up a semifinal against
Andy Murray, the only
man to beat Nadal in a
major in 2010.


Gator arrested for marijuana possession


BY MARK LONG
AP SPORTS WRITER
GAINESVILLE -
Florida cornerback Janoris
Jenkins has been arrested
on a marijuana possession
charge, his second arrest in
the past 20 months.
It's also the first arrest
under new coach Will
Muschamp, who vowed to
have players represent the
university "the Florida
way."I
Jenkins was arrested
early Saturday in a
Gainesville nightclub.
Corporal Tscharna Senn,
public information officer
for the Gainesville Police
Department, said officers
patrolling downtown clubs
spotted Jenkins in a public
bathroom rolling a marijua-
na cigarette. She said
Jenkins had a "small, clear
bag of cannabis."
Jenkins was charged with
possession of marijuana


less than 20 grams, a mis-
demeanor. He was not
taken to jail. Instead, he
was released after signing a
notice to appear in court
Feb. 17.
"We are aware of the
incident with Janoris
Jenkins and will handle it
internally at this time,"
Muschamp said in a state-
ment released by the
school.
It's certainly not the start
Muschamp wanted at
Florida.
"There's a certain thing
that I'm going to refer to as
the Florida way, and that's
the way they need to act
and that's the way they
need to represent our
University," Muschamp
said during his introductory
news conference last
month. "And I'm going to
demand that and I think that
you'll understand in time
that that's something that's
very important to me."


Former coach Urban
Meyer's tenure was filled
with off-the-field issues.
The Gators had 30 arrests
involving 27 players during
Meyer's six seasons.
One of those included
Jenkins. Police used a stun
gun when arresting him in
May 2009 and Jenkins was
charged with affray and
resisting arrest without vio-
lence. Jenkins said he was
fighting back after a manp
tried to pull a gold chain off
his neck.
Jenkins signed a deferred
prosecution agreement the
following month and got his
record wiped clean after
serving probation and per-
forming community serv-
ice.
Jenkins, considered one
of the top cornerbacks in
the SoutheasternI
Conference, decided two
weeks ago to return to
school for his senior sea-
son. He's a three-year

starter who played most of
last year with a torn labrum
in his right shoulder. He
missed the Outback Bowl
following surgery.
Despite the injury,
Jenkins enjoyed his best
season. He pretty much
shut down the league's best
receivers. Georgia's A.J.
Green, Alabama's Julio
Jones and South Carolina's
Alshon Jeffery averaged 38
yards receiving against
Jenkins and had one touch-
down between them.
Many believed Jenkins
would turn leave early. But
after Muschamp took over
and hired several assistants
with NFL backgrounds,
Jenkins opted to stay in
school, rehab his shoulder
and possibly improve his
draft stock this fall. Now,
he's facing almost certain
punishment for his arrest.

Jeter could see


time in outfield


ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEW YORK -Yankees
general manager Brian
Cashman says that if short-
stop Derek Jeter ever does
switch positions, the out-
field would be a good fit.
Cashman took questions
from fans Tuesday at an
event sponsored by WFAN
radio. The GM says Jeter is
the Yankees' shortstop and
that the team doesn't have
any plans to move him.
The 36-year-old Jeter


recently signed a three-year
contract with a player
option for 2014. In the
event Jeter does shift,
Cashman suggests center
field would be the right
spot.
Jeter worked out Tuesday
at the Yankees' spring-train-
ing complex in Tampa, Fla.,
hitting in the batting cage
and fielding grounders. The
only time he spent in the
outfield came when he
played catch before starting
infield drills.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
19) If your way of doing some-
thing conflicts with that of a co-
worker's, both parties must be
prepared to make some adjust-
ments. Problems will result if
you are unyielding or too stub-
born.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -
Keep your opinions to yourself
regarding problems or deci-
sions that don't directly involve
you, even if it does affect a
friend who won't fight back. You
could make things worse.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -
Someone who is jealous of you,
but who doesn't operate openly,
might attempt to. put some
obstacles on your path.
However, because you're up to
his/her shenanigans, they .won't
affect you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -
Take care that you don't ignore
your better judgment and yield
to the wishes of a clever manip-
ulator. If you are on guard, this
person's tactics will prove fruit-
less.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -
Don't take merchandise or
equipment that needs repair
back to the place that did a
lousy job previously, even if you
originally bought it from them.
Find someplace new.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -
Complications will result if you
are far too possessive of some-
one with whom you're emotion-
ally involved. This type of action
always ends up in causing the
person to flee.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -
Strive to appreciate your mate's
point of view, especially if it
involves a family issue. If you
can't meet him/her halfway, it
will encourage conditions for
lingering warfare.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -
Do not partake in gossip per-
taining to someone who isn't
present to defend him/herself.
Anything negative you say will
be repeated to the object of your
attention.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -
Avoid all types of risky enter-
prises, especially those that are
of a financial nature. Lust for
action could override your com-
mon sense and objectivity,
causing you to make a poor
choice.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -
Courtesy and rationality are
both essential requirements for
dealing with people. When it
comes to your involvements
with others, treat everyone with
the respect you want from them.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec.
21) Don't seethe in silence if
an arrogant person directs
some derogatory remarks at
you. Let this person know up
front that you're not a candidate
for putdowns.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.

"He's been teaching me to drive."


Dear Annie: Our son, "Colin," is 19 years old
and a sophomore in college. He was always help-
ful and a good student. Last spring, Colin
became rude and condescending. We found out
he was living with a 33-year-old man who is
infected with HIV. This man was controlling and
used sexual blackmail to keep Colin in line. We
finally got our son back home. but it was a long,
difficult summer.
When Colin announced that he was gay, my
husband and I sought advice from several clergy.
Most of them said to turn our backs
on him until he asked for our for-
giveness for living sinfully. We
decided instead to take the advice of
our priest, who said to accept his
orientation, hard as that has been. l e
All we've asked of Colin is
that he do well in school, get a job
to help pay off the legal bills that
resulted from extricating himn from
his previous relationship and not be
sexually promiscuous. Colin contracted vari-
ous STDs and should avoid sexual contact
anyway. Our requests seemed reasonable to
us. Unfortunately, when Colin returned to
school, he became sexually involved with at
least two different men and even asked to bring
one home for the holidays. Of course, we said no.
We could live with his orientation if he would
live a moral lifestyle. So flu, he has not tested
positive for HIV, although that is still a worry. We
have told him we will not pay any more medical
bills, since we can't afford it. From the horrible
way he treats us, I regret that we were so kind to
him over the summer. Counseling didn't help


BRI]


Let's go straight to the nub of today's .deal. South is in four
spades. West leads the club two. How should East plan the
defense?
On Monday I pointed out (again) that when third hand plays
high, he tables the bottom of his equivalently high cards. He does
not'do that when he holds ace-king-doubleton. Then he wins the
first trick with the ace and cashes the king, showing his double-
ton. He might also win with the ace first in this situation.
First, though, a comment on the auction. South was right to
rebid his good six-card suit, not to raise clubs with tour low cards.
How should East read his partner's lead? Assuming it isn't a
falsecard (which is rarely a good idea), a two-lead is either low
from a suit headed by at least one honor, or a singleton. Here,
East knows West does not have a club honor, so should assume
a singleton (despite the bidding).
However, if East wins with his king, cashes the ace, and
leads the six as a suit-preference signal for hearts (1lhe higher-
ranking of the other two side suits), West will not )be suie
whether the six is high or low. Suppose South does not play his
eight. West might think East began with A-K-8-6.
To help West, East should win the fiisl trick wilh his ace,
cash the king, then lead the six. West should take the ace-
before-the-king sequence as a suit-preference signal for hearts.
Note that if West shifts to a diamond at trick four, South gets
home, his heart losers disappearing on dummy's two diamond
honors.


him see the error of his ways. He is a bad influ-
ence on his little sister. How should we handle
this? Heartbroken Parents
Dear Parents: We know Colin's sexuality is
disturbing to you, but try to separate his orienta-
tion from his impulsive lifestyle. He is 19 and liv-
ing away from home for the first time. In college,
many children, gay or straight, become sexually
active. Unfortunately, some also are promiscu-
ous. drink too much, do drugs, engage in risky
behaviors and otherwise behave like wild ani-
mnals let loose. Most kids settle down eventually.
and the hope is that they don't do any
<> permanent damage in the interim.
e Please contact PFLAG (pflag.org)
for some emotional support and
practical suggestions.
Dear Annie: I have been caring
_ -for my disabled husband while
working full time and raising two
children. I haven't had time alone in
'\ 15 years.
\\ Now my children are grown.
and they want to give me a mini-
.- vacation as a gift. They oflTered
to stay wilh l)ad while I go away for a four-day
weekend. My husband is upset and says if 1
truly cared for him, I would not want to get
away. I He is doing his best to make me feel guilty.
Is he being selfish, or an I? Need a Break
Dear Need: Your husband has become com-
pletely dependent on yon and fears your absence.
All caregivers need to recharge their batteries.
Reassure your husband that you love him, that
you will come back refreshed, and that the kids
will do a wonderftil job taking care of him.

Protesters denounce Mubarak


BY MAGGIE MICHAEL
AssocXiA ED PRESS,
CAIRO Thousands of
anti-government protesters,
some hurling rocks and
climbing atop an armored
police truck, clashed with
riot police Tuesday in the
center of Cairo in a
Tunisia-inspired demon-
stration to demand the end
of Hosni Mubarak's nearly
30 years in power. Three
people were killed in con-
frontations around the
country.
After a day of violence,
thousands of demonstrators
stood their ground in
downtown Cairo's vast
Tahrir Square, steps away
from parliament and other
government buildings.


They promised to camp out
overnight, setting the stage
for an even more dramatic
confrontation.
Throughout the day,
police blasted crowds with
water cannons and set upon
them with batons and acrid
clouds of tear gas in an
attempt to clear demonstra-
tors crying out "Down with
Mubarak" and demanding
an end to Egypt's grinding
poverty, corruption, unem-
ployment and police abus-
es.
Tuesday's demonstra-
tion, the largest Egypt has
seen for years, began
peacefully, with police
showing unusual restraint
in what appeared to be a
calculated strategy by the
government to avoid fur-


their sullying the image of a
security apparatus widely
criticized as corrupt and
violent.
With discontent growing
over economic woes, and
the toppling of Tunisia's
president still resonating in
the region, Egypt's govern-
ment which normally
responds with swift retribu-
tion to any dissent need-
ed to tread carefully.
But as crowds filled
Tahrir Square waving
Egyptian and Tunisian
flags and adopting the.
same protest chants that
rang out in the streets of
Tunis security personnel
changed tactics and the
protest turned violent.
Around 10,000 protesters
packed the square, the


Interior Ministry said.
The sight of officers
beating demonstrators had
particular resonance
because Tuesday was also
a national holiday honor-
ing the much-feared
police.
A policeman was hit in
the head with a rock during
the protest in Cairo and
died later in the hospital,
an Interior Ministry offi-
cial said.
In another demonstra-
tion in the city of Suez, two
protesters -were killed, he
said. One of them had res-
piratory problems and died
as a result of tear gas
inhalation; the other was
killed by a rock.
The official spoke on
condition of anonymity

strates in downtown Cairo, Egypt Tuesday, Jan. 25,

because he was not author-
ized to release information
to journalists.
In Egypt, discontent with
life in the autocratic, police
state has simmered under


the surface for years. It is
the example of Tunisia,
though, that appeared to be
enough to push many
young Egyptians into the
streets for the first time.


Putin vows vengeance


against suicide bomber


BY LYNN BERRY
AssocLIATID PRISS
MOSCOW Prime Minister Vladimir
Putin vowed revenge Tuesday for the suicide
bombing that killed 35 people at a Moscow
airport a familiar tough-on-terrorism
stance that has underpinned his power but
also resulted in a rising number of deadly
attacks in Russia.
Lax security also was blamed for
Monday's explosion in the international
arrivals area of Domodedovo Airport that also
injured 180 people, with President Dmitry
Medvedev criticizing police and managers at
the airport, the largest of three that serve the
capital.
NTV television showed a photograph of
what it said was the detached head of the sus-
pected bomber. Investigators have said that
DNA testing will be necessary before the
man, who appears to be in his 30s, can be
identified.
A two-second video of the blast itself,
broadcast on state television and said to be
from a closed-circuit TV camera, showed a
burst of flames and passengers falling and
fleeing as smoke filled the hall.
No one has claimed responsibility for the
attack, but suspicion has fallen on Islamist
separatists from Chechnya or elsewhere in
the restive Caucasus region who have been
battling Russian authority for over 15 years.

New Hezbollah-backed PM

urges Lebanon togetherness


BY ELIZABETH A. KENNEDY AND
ZEINA KARAM
ASSOCIATED PRESS
BEIRUT The billion-
aire businessman chosen by
Hezbollah and its allies as
Lebanon's prime minister
called for a unity govern-
ment Tuesday, a sign that
the Iranian-backed militant
group does not want to push
its growing power too far
and risk isolation abroad
and an escalation of sectari-
an tensions at home.
In Washington, Secretary
of State Hillary Rodham
Clinton warned that forma-
tion of a government domi-
nated by Hezbollah would
mean changes in U.S. rela-
tions with Lebanon. The
militant group and its allies
ousted the government
backed by Washington two

off as a pro-Hezbollah fig-
ure with a militant agenda.
In an interview Tuesday
night on local television,
Mikati said he is commit-
ted to democracy and dia-
logue.
"I am not in a confronta-
tion with the West," he told
the private LBC station.
"We are looking to build
good relations with the
West."
He also rejected the
notion that he is a
Hezbollah candidate or that
the government will be an
Iranian proxy.
"Why these accusations
and all this furor ahead of
time? Why the prejudg-
ments?" he said. .
Hezbollah leader Sheik
Hassan Nasrallah echoed
those sentiments.


"We do not seek power
and we do not seek to gov-
ern. Our minds and hearts
are somewhere else,"
Nasrallah said Tuesday in a
televised speech. "While
you go to sleep, we go to
train (against Israel)."
A telecoms tycoon and
former prime minister,
Mikati, a 55-year-old
Sunni, is seen as a neutral
figure in Lebanese politics.
He is a friend of Syrian
President Bashar Assad and
also enjoys close ties ivith
U.S. ally Saudi Arabia.
His nomination does not
alter Lebanon's power-
sharing system, in which
the prime minister must be
a Sunni, the parliament
speaker a Shiite and the
president must be a
Christian Maronite.
