A MEDIA GENERAL NEWSPAPER
Cracked road will be tested
BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
FLORIDAN STAFF WRITER
A paving contractor is trying to
help Jackson County figure out why
El Bethel Church Road has so many
cracks and ruts just 16 years after it
The problems began nearly nine
years ago. Today, at least one of the
cracks is an estimated one-foot wide,
according to Jackson County
Engineer Larry Alvarez. He said it's
the biggest he's ever seen in a road.
Florida Highway Products has
offered to cut out a 650-foot section
of the road, analyze it, and likely
rework the section's base below the
pavement. The base is the suspected
root of the problem.
. The county will pay for the asphalt
overlay material that will be installed
after the fix, at a cost of roughly
$13,500 for the materials. The com-
pany is providing the labor free of
charge, worth an estimated $15,000
At Tuesday's county commission
meeting, a representative of a rival
Columbia, initially expressed some
concern over the arrangement, but
then offered to do the same thing for
Strickland said that, while he thinks
it's a good idea to have the test done,
he wanted to make sure that Florida

matically get the job if the county
decides to repave El Bethel, simply
because it's going to do the test for

School district faces cuts
Under Gov. Rick Scott's newly announced budget, the Jackson County School District would lose about $4.8 million in fund-
ing. Superintendent Lee Miller said there might be things that will have to be put on hold due to the funding cuts, such as buy-
ing new buses, staff development, travel and field trips. Mark Skinner/Floridan
Governor's proposal means $5M less
FLORIDAN STAFF WRITER
Under Gov. Rick Scott's recommended
budget, the Jackson County School
District would lose about $4.8 million in
funding; or 10 percent of the $48 million
the district received, this year.
The governor has recommended $4.6
billion in budget cuts for next year; almost
72 percent of the cuts would be to educa-
tion, a total of $3.3 billion.
For the Jackson County School District,
the proposed cuts would mean a loss of
$682 of state funding per student. This
year, the base funding per student was
$3,623.76, according to district Interim
Finance Director Kathy Sneads.
Based on the average salary of a
teacher, the funding cuts equal about 92
teachers in Jackson County, Sneads said.
But the district can't afford to lose any
teachers. In fact, 10 to 12 teachers were
hired this year at an extra cost of about
half a million dollars to meet the state's
class size requirements, according to
Jackson County School District
Superintendent Lee Miller.
Miller said he thinks the district could
have gotten by without hiring the addi-
tional teachers, but in order to meet the
law, the district had to hire them. In some
cases, it was for situations where, there
was one.or t\vwo extra students in a:class,'
Miller' said 'the proposed cuts are
"tremendous." He has asked district direc-
tors to look at their budgets and trim them
"Every area is going to be cut back,"
Principals have also been asked to
watch their spending from now until the
end of the school year.
Miller said there might be things that
will have to be put on hold, such as buying
new buses, staff development, travel and
field trips. He doesn't want these cuts to
deny anything from students, however.
"We don't want to harm our classroom.
We want to make sure our children get all
that they've always gotten," Miller said.
If the governor's budget passed, Sneads
said the district might be forced to pull
from its reserves, especially if the district
still has to meet class size requirements.
The district ended last year with about
$1':6 million in general funds, Sneads
"We are fortunate we' have the reserves
we do t6 fall back on," Sneads said.
But Miller said he hopes the district will
be able to make ends meet without dip-
ping into savings.
"We will cross that bridge when we
come to it," he added.
Miller' hopes this budget is the worst-.
case scenario and eventually, through
negotiations with legislators, the cuts
won't be so drastic. But he knows there
will be cuts no matter what, and "it's
going to be tough."
The school district will start the budget-
ing process after spring break.
Red Cross Disaster Action Team members
were in Malone Wednesday to assist a single
mother and four children whose mobile
home sustained electrical damage in a fire.
Jackson County Fire Rescue was dis-
patched to the residence, at 5360 11th St.
around 10;22*p. dncsday. according to
Jackson CourityTire Chief Tony Wesley.
Sharori Thomas and her 2-year-old daugh-
ter and niece "ere in the honie during the
fire. Thomas' other children were at school.
A Town of Malone employee saw the fire
and informed the landlord, according to
Thomas said she couldn't tell there was a
problem from inside the home, but she is "so
fortunate" the Malone employee noticed and
was able to notify them to get out.
Wesley said the fire started in a fireplace.
The fire chief estimated there was about
$10,000 worth of damage to the mobile
home. Power was shut off to the home. The
Red Cross is assisting with temporary lodg-
ing and food, according to a press release.

Budget chief says Scott flexible on spending
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Gov. Rick Scott's budget chief
Wednesday told lawmakers his
boss will be flexible about his
$65.9 billion spending proposal
for the next fiscal year after a
Senate panel offered some praise
but picked apart many of the gov-
Budget director Jerry
McDaniel, a holdover from for-
mer Gov. Charlie Crist's adminis- -
tration, offered that assurance
during his appearance before the
Senate Budget Committee.
"He is not suffering under the
idea that everything we have pro-
posed here will pass," McDanielt
said. "He'd like a lot of it to pass.,
He believes it's a good budget for
the state of Florida."
Scott on Monday rolled out his
proposed "jobs budget" saying it
would help keep his campaign
promise of creating, 700,000 new
jobs over seven years. It would
chop state spending by about $5
billion the biggest cut in
Florida's history and provide
$1.7 billion in tax and fee reduc-
tions mostly to businesses and"
The deepest cut of $3.3 billion
would be in education, which
also would be hit with a reduction
in local property taxes that sup-
port public schools.
Both of those recommenda-
tions drew opposition and
McDaniel agreed they would lead
to teacher layoffs. He said educa-
tion was hardest hit because Scott
is philosophically opposed to
using state money to replace
more than $1 billion in federal
stimulus funds that public
schools, colleges and universities
are receiving during the current
budget year ending June 30.
Sen. David Simmons, R-
Maitland, said Scott's across-the-
board property tax cut won't help
create jobs because much of the
relief will go to existing home-
owners who already pay relative-
ly low taxes. That's because the
state's Save Our Homes
Amendment limits annual assess-
ment increases to no more than 3
As a result, though, newcomers
can pay thousands more in taxes
for an identical home and that
discourages people from coming
to'. Florida, which depends on
growth to fuel its economy,
Simmons also objected to
Scott's plan to make state and
local government employees
including teachers contribute 5
percent of their salaries to

Ex-DC school chief Rhee defends teacher firings
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
District of Columbia public
schools chancellor Michelle Rhee
on Wednesday defended her deci-
sion to fire 75 teachers even
though an arbitrator overruled
Rhee, now an informal educa-
tion adviser to Florida Gov. Rick
Scott, commented on the arbitra-
tion ruling after appearing before
a Florida Senate education com-
mittee to discuss her ideas for
improving instructional quality.
She became nationally known
for closing schools and firing
about 1,000 teachers deemed to
be ineffective during her 3 1/2-
year tenure in Washington.
Arbitrator Charles Feigenbaum
on Tuesday ordered 75 fired
teachers reinstated because they
were never told why they were
being fired and had been given no
chance to dispute claims they
"The arbitrator, if you look at
the ruling yesterday, said a lot of
these teachers were ineffective
and should have been fired," Rhee
said. "The school district is going
to appeal the decision. They're
very, very confident in their legal
standing and are confident that it
will be overturned."
Rhee also spoke in support of
legislation that would do away
with tenure for new teachers in
Florida. It also would set up a
merit pay system for teachers
based heavily on test scores. The
Legislature passed a similar bill
last year but it was vetoed by
then-Gov. Charlie Crist after
protests across the state by teach-
ers, their unions and parents. The
new legislation, though, mirrors
Florida's proposal for its $700
million federal "Race to the Top"
grant that was drafted in consulta-
tion with union officials.
Most teachers are "doing a great
job," Rhee said, but she cited a
Stanford University study that
concluded the United States would
rise to the top among nations in
student achievement if the lowest
performing 5 percent to 8 percent
of teachers were replaced with
those who are average.
"As long as we have practices
in place that protect ineffective
teachers, we are not going to be
able to significantly move student
achievement levels," Rhee said.
"It drives effective teachers
crazy when there is somebody
working next to them that is not
pulling their own weight and
when they inherit a group of kids
the following year that are several
grade levels behind because
somebody didn't do their job,"
Rhee, though, said education
schools are not "preparing teach-
ers well for the rigors that they are
going to see every single day in

Crist, Sink to unite against offshore drilling
BY BRENDAN FARRINGTON
TALLAHASSEE Former Gov.
Charlie Crist and last year's
Democratic gubernatorial nominee
Alex Sink were back at the Capitol
Wednesday to launch a petition drive
seeking to add a ban on oil drilling in
state waters to Florida's constitution.
While they're also supporting legis-
lation pushed by Democratic lawmak-
ers that would put the ban on.the ballot,
they know Republican lawmakers
aren't likely to support the idea. Such a
measure would make it on the ballot if
the Legislature puts it there, or if
enough citizens sign petitions.
"We tried legislatively last time,
and that didn't work out so well," said
Crist, a lifelong Republican before
going independent last spring. "So
now it has to be in the hands of the
people to make this happen."
Republicans criticized Crist for
calling a special legislative session
last summer that sought to put the
same measure on last November's
ballot. Republican leaders said that
the proposed amendment wasn't
needed because state law already
banned drilling. They opened the ses-
sion and quickly closed it without
taking a vote.
A ban that's part of a constitutional
amendment would be harder to
change than state law.
Crist, at the time, angrily said, "I'm
going to give them hell for it."
He and Sink, the former state chief
financial officer, stood with
Democratic lawmakers and anti-
drilling advocates outside the old
Capitol to announce the petition
drive. Behind them, people stood
with signs, some showing Florida's
-pristine beaches and others showing
turtles and birds covered in oil from
last year's BP spill.
"It just tears at your heart when you
think about what happened in the
Gulf of Mexico just last spring and
summer and the prospect that some-
thing like that could happen again
even closer to Florida's shore if we
don't ban this," said Crist.
Before the BP oil spill last year,
Republican lawmakers were pushing
to allow drilling in state waters, which
extend 10 miles from the coast. While
that talk has stopped for now,
Republican Gov. Rick Scott, who
defeated Sink in November, has said
he's open to drilling as long as it's safe.
"It's only a matter of time before
Republican leadership in the House
and Senate again decide that oil
drilling within eyesight is a good
idea," said Rep. Rick Kriseman, D-St.
Petersburg, who is sponsoring the
resolution that would put the ban on
the ballot. "It's not a good idea. It's a
terrible idea and it makes no sense."
Even though very little oil reached
Florida shores, the threat alone drove
'tourists away from Panhandle beach-
es during peak season. Some waters
off Florida's coast were closed to
fishing, hurting commercial and char-
ter fishing businesses.
Sink recalled talking to people,
tears in their eyes, who were on the
verge of losing businesses they
worked years to grow.
US opens new front in Colombian drug battle
BY CURT ANDERSON
AP LEGAL AFFAIRS WRITER
MIAMI The U.S. is opening a
new front in the battle against
Colombian cocaine producers
focused on about 30 emerging groups
seeking to replace once-powerful
drug cartels that have largely been
dismantled, Miami U.S. Attorney
Willy Ferrer said Wednesday.
The new investigation of so-called
Bandas Criminales, or BACRIM for
short, will be run by a first-in-the-
nation unit of three prosecutors in
Ferrer's office along with agents from
the Drug Enforcement
Administration, FBI, Immigration
and Customs Enforcement and
Ferrer announced a key indictment
on drug trafficking charges of the
leader of one of the organizations, 39-
year-old Diego Perez Henao, who is
also known as Diego Rastrojo and
whose Rastrojos group is among
Colombia's most powerful and vio-
lent. Nine other BACRIM members
and associates have also been charged
in South Florida in recent months.
"You realized the real
human toll and impact that
the crisis we experienced
last year was having on
hundreds of thousands of
Floridians," Sink said. "If
there's one little thing that
we Floridians can do, it is
to maintain control of our
own state waters."

House GOP chairman outlines spending cuts
BY ANDREW TAYLOR
Republicans proposed ending
more than 60 government pro-
grams and cutting hundreds of
others Wednesday in a $35 bil-
lion down payment on their
promise to rein in federal
Funding for AmeriCorps, fam-
ily planning assistance and the
Corporation for Public
Broadcasting would be wiped out,
under the proposal, presented to
the GOP rank-and-file at a closed
As outlined by Rep. Harold
Rogers, R-Ky., the chairman of
the House Appropriations
Committee, cuts would range
widely across the face of govern-
ment, including aid to education,
food safety and inspection serv-
ices, and high-speed rail, which
President Barack Obama' wants
The legislation is expected to
reach the House floor next week.
While the political focus is on the
cuts demanded by Republicans,
the bill also is needed to allow
the government to continue nor-
mal operations when its funding
authority expires on March 4.
Many Republicans, especially
freshmen lawmakers elected with
tea party support, promise to seek
Rogers also called for deep
cuts to the Environmental
Protection Agency 18 percent
from 2010 levels as well as
elimination of a program that
helps local police departments
hire new officers. An EPA pro-
gram that gives localities money
for clean water projects is going
. to be hit especially hard.
The package of cuts totals $43
billion taken from domestic
agency and. foreign aid budgets
when compared with 'levels
enacted for 2010. Once increases
for the Pentagon are accounted
for, those savings are $35 billion:
They are smaller than promised
in last year's campaign because
the budget year is already almost
five months under way.
Rogers warns that further cuts
sought by conservatives could
lead to furloughs of federal work-
ers at the FBI and the Drug
Enforcement Agency, or politi-
cally wrenching cuts to health
research, special education grants
to local school districts, or Pell
Grants to disadvantaged college
A veteran Democrat also
warned against some of the
"We need to cut spending, but
we need to do it by focusing on
waste," said Sen. Charles
Schumer, D-N.Y. "This proposal
would get rid of cops that keep
our streets safe, food inspectors
that keep our food safe and cut
home heating oil for seniors."
Eliminating AmeriCorps a
signature initiative of- former
President Bill Clinton would
save $373 million. Ending police
hiring grants would save $298
The federal subsidy for the
Corporation for Public
Broadcasting would be eliminat-
ed, saving $531 million. The cor-
poration funds a small portion of
the budget for National Public
Radio, which is deeply unpopular
with conservatives. But an effort
to cut the public broadcasting
budget a few years back also
under GOP control of Congress
- was rejected after strong
objections from the public.
The day after Obama called for
a six-year, $53 billion investment
in high speed rail, Republicans
proposed eliminating the subsi-
Republicans also propose cut-
ting Amtrak's budget back to
2008 levels to save $224 million,
or 14 percent. They tried deeper
cuts a few yedrs ago, but those
were rejected on the floor.
"We have taken a wire brush to
the budget and scoured every
program to find real savings that
are responsible and justifiable to
the American people," Rogers
said in a statement. "Make no
mistake, these cuts are not low-
Rogers only issued a partial
roster of cuts. He didn't outline
cuts to heating and-housing sub-
sidies for the poor, Indian health
care, road construction or transit
subsidies. And there was no,
detail on the relatively small cuts
to Congress' own budget, which
was largely spared.
Republicans account for their
larger reduction amounts by .peg-
ging their recommended cuts to
Obama's requests. They claim
$58 billion in savings through the
end of the year, compared with
Obama's proposals for domestic
agencies. That' amount increases
to $74 billion after defense cuts
are folded in.
The list of cuts contains
numerous winners and losers -
and seeks to steer clear of politi-
cal land mines. NASA would
absorb a cut of less than 1 percent
cut from current levels. And the
National Park Service would be
In fact, the FBI would receive a
4 percent increase over current
levels, as would the U.S.
Marshalls Service. The health
research budget would be frozen
at 2010 levels ($31 billion). And
while Republicans are advertis-
ing cuts to community develop-
ment programs of $530 million
from Obama's budget, those cuts
equal a freeze at current levels of
almost $4 billion.
But renewable energy and
energy efficiency programs
would be slashed by about half,
while a weatherization program
for homes, factories and office
buildings would be terminated.
The Women, Infants and
Children program, which pro-
vides food for low-income preg-
nant women, mothers and young
children, would receive a $758
million cut, about 10 percent. But
with money left over from last
year, the impact should be mod-

Strikes erupt as Egypt protesters defy VP warnings
BY MAGGIE MICHAEL
AND TAREK EL-TABLAWY
CAIRO Thousands of state
workers and impoverished
Egyptians launched strikes and
protests around the country on
Wednesday over their economic
woes as anti-government activists
sought to expand their campaign
to oust President Hosni Mubarak
despite warnings from the vice
president that protests won't be
tolerated much longer.
Some 8,000 protesters, mainly
farmers, set barricades of flaming
palm trees in the southern
province of Assiut, blocking the
main highway and railway to
Cairo to complain of bread short-
ages. They then drove off the gov-
ernor by pelting his van with
stones. Hundreds of slum dwellers
in the Suez Canal city of Port Said
set fire to part of the governor's
headquarters in anger over lack of
Efforts by Vice President Omar
Suleiman to open a dialogue with
protesters over reforms have bro-
ken down since the weekend, with
youth organizers of the movement
deeply suspicious that he plans
only superficial changes far short
of real democracy. They refuse
any talks unless Mubarak steps
Showing growing impatience
with the rejection, Suleiman
issued a sharp warning that raised
the prospect of a renewed crack-
down. He told Egyptian newspa-
per editors late Tuesday that there
could be a "coup" unless demon-
strators agree to enter negotiations.
Further deepening skepticism of
his intentions, he suggested Egypt
was not ready for democracy and
said a government-formed panel
of judges, dominated by Mubarak
loyalists, would push ahead with
recommending its own constitu-
tional amendments to be put to a
"He is threatening to impose
martial law, which means every-
body in the square will be
smashed," said Abdul-Rahman
Samir, a spokesman for a coalition
of the five main youth groups
behind protests in Cairo's Tahrir
Square. "But what would he do
with the rest of the 70 million
Egyptians who will follow us
Suleiman is creating "a disas-
trous scenario," Samir said. "We
are striking and we will protest
and we will not negotiate until
Mubarak steps down. Whoever
wants to threaten us, then let them
do so," he added.
Nearly 10,000 massed in Tahrir
on Wednesday in the 16th day of
protests. Nearby, 2,000 more
blocked off parliament, several
blocks away, chanting slogans for
it to be dissolved. Army ,troops
deployed in the parliament
For the first time, protesters
were calling forcefully Wednesday
for labor strikes, despite a warning
by Suleiman that calls for civil dis-
obedience are "very dangerous for
society and we can't put up with
this at all."
Strikes broke out across Egypt
as many companies reopened for
the first time after closing for
much of the turmoil because of
curfews. Not all the strikers were
responding directly to the protest-
ers' calls but the movement's
success and its denunciations of
the increasing poverty under near-
ly 30 years of Mubarak's rule
clearly reignited labor discontent
that has broken out frequently in
The farmers in Assiut voiced
their support of the Tahrir move-
ment, witnesses said, as did the

tricity workers stood in front of the

for Mubarak's overthrow, and

on fire and attacked a police sta-

ons. The officials spoke on condi-

the city of Suez on Wednesday.
Some 5,000 workers at various
state companies including tex-
tile workers, medicine bottle man-
ufacturers, sanitation workers and
a firm involved in repairs for ships
on the Suez Canal held separate
strikes and protests at their facto-
ries. Traffic at the Suez Canal, a
vital international waterway that is
a top revenue earner for Egypt,
was not affected.
"We're not getting our rights,"
said Ahmed Tantawi, a Public
Works employee in Suez. He said
workers provide 24-hour service
and are exposed to health risks but
get only an extra $1.50 a month in
hardship compensation. He said
there are employees who have
worked their entire lives in the
department and will retire with a
salary equivalent to $200 a month.

that have drawn the largest crowds
so far. But in a change of tactic,
they want to spread the protests
out around different parts of Cairo
instead of only in downtown
Tahrir Square where a permanent
sit-in is now in its second week,
said Khaled Abdel-Hamid, one of
the youth organizers.
A previous "protest of millions"
last week drew at least a quarter-
million people to Tahrir their
biggest yet, along with crowds of
tens of thousands in other cities. A
Tahrir rally on Tuesday rivaled that
one in size, fueled by a renewed
enthusiasm after the release of
Wael Ghonim, a Google market-
ing manager who helped spark the
unprecedented protest movement.
Still, authorities were projecting
an image of normalcy. Egypt's
most famous tourist attraction, the
Pyramids of Giza, reopened to
tourists on Wednesday. Tens of
thousands of foreigners have fled
Egypt amid the chaos, raising con-
cerns about the economic impact
..of the protests. Mubarak met
Wednesday with a Russian envoy.
Suleiman's interview Tuesday
evening was a tough warning to
protesters that their continued
demonstrations would not be toler-
ated for a long time and that they
must get behind his program for
reform. The U.S. has given a
strong endorsement to Suleiman's
efforts but insists it want to see real
changes. Vice President Joe Biden
spoke by phone with Suleiman on
Tuesday, saying Washington
wants Egypt to immediately
rescind emergency laws that give
broad powers to security forces -
a key demand of the protesters.
Officials have made a series of
pledges not ,to attack, harass or
arrest the activists in recent days.
But Suleiman's comments sug-
gested that won't last forever.
"We can't bear this for a long
time," he ,said of the Tahrir
protests. "There must be an end to
this crisis as soon as possible." He
said the regime wants to resolve
the crisis through dialogue, warn-
ing: "We don't want to deal with

Berlusconi: Sex trial aims to discredit my rule

MILAN Premier Silvio
Berlusconi faced the most seri-

power as Italian prosecutors
sought to put him on trial in a
seamy prostitution scandal
involving a 17-year-old
Moroccan girl that has both titil-

The prosecutors filed a
request Wednesday for
Berlusconi to be tried quickly in
Milan, on charges the 74-year-
old leader had sex with the girl
and then tried to cover it up by
using his power.
Moments later, speaking in
Rome, Berlusconi accused them
of seeking to topple his govem-

sons is a lack of clear alterna-

is not a single credible coali-

credible leader and not a sin-

A judge now must decide
whether to dismiss the pros-
ecutors' request or go ahead
with a trial which would
add to the premier's already
substantial legal worries. A
decision is expected within
two weeks, just as two unre-
lated trials and one prelimi-

to resume in Milan. These
corruption trials are resum-

briefly shielded the premier.

that Berlusconi paid for sex
with the girl, nicknamed
Ruby, who has since turned
18, then used his influence
to get her out of police cus-
tody when she was detained
for the unrelated suspected

Big third spurs Sneads past Graceville, 66-54
BY DUSTIN KENT
FLORIDAN SPORTS EDITOR
The Sneads Pirates ended
the Graceville Tigers' season
Tuesday night in Bonifay,
using a big third period per-
formance to take a 66-54 win
in the quarterfinals of the
District 2-2A tournament.
Graceville led 27-25 at the
half, but the Pirates dominat-
ed the third quarter 22-11 to
move ahead by 10 points at
After the Tigers pulled to
within nine early in the fourth
quarter, Sneads proceeded to
push the lead up to 15 points,
and kept it at double figures
the rest of the way.
John Whittington led the
Pirates with 16 points, with
Daryll Johnson adding 15,
and Josh Rogers 12, all com-
ing in the second half.
"We were a little sluggish
in the first half. I didn't think
we played well," Sneads
coach Kelvin Johnson said
after the game. "We were
standing around a little bit on
offense, but I thought we real-
ly picked it up in the second
half. I was proud of the boys.
We've been up 8, .10 points
two or three times this year
and squandered the lead. This,
time, we didn't give it up, and
we kept adding on to it."
Graceville got 17 points
from Marquise White, with
Jacky Miles adding 15, and
Kevin Potts 11.
Potts came in as the leading
scorer for the Tigers, and the
Sneads coach said that keep-
ing him under wraps was a
key component of an overall
solid defensive effort.
"We were really focused on
keeping Potts from scoring,
and we did a pretty good job
of that," Johnson said. "I
thought our defense was a
key in the second half. We did
a good job of limiting them to
one shot, and keeping a hand
in the face of their shooters."
The Tigers' season ends at
a disappointing 9-16, with
coach Thomas Register say-
ing his team's inconsistency
simply caught up to it.
"We came out flat in the
third quarter," the coach said.
"We lost our man defensively
several times, didn't rebound,
couldn't finish ... we dug
ourselves a hole that we
couldn't dig out. We weren't
stopping the ball. They pene-
trated all the way to the 'bas-
ket, and we had no one com-
ing over to help. We had two
keys to win the game, and
that was one, stopping pene-
tration. We just had some
mental lapses that you can't
have in a big game like that."
Sneads will next take on
the top-seeded Holmes
County Blue Devils on
Friday night in the district
semifinals at 7:30 p.m.
The championship game
will be Saturday at 7 p.m.

The Malone Tigers saw
their run of three straight
come to an end in 2010, and
they'll have plenty of work
to do to get back to a place
of league prominence in
Malone finished 14-10
last season, losing to
Munroe in the District 2-1A
tournament to be knocked
out of the playoffr-for-the
first time since 2005.
The Tigers lost three key
seniors from that team in
second baseman Jeffrey
Pittman, catcher Blake
Henson, and pitcher Will
With those players gone,
others still playing basket-
ball, and a pair of other
returnees nursing injuries,
the Tigers and coach Max
Harkrider have found
preparation for the new sea-
son to be more than a small
"I really don't know what
we've got yet because we
haven't had much practice,"
the coach said. "We've had
guys hurt, guys sick, we've
been dodging the rain ...
it's a mess. We've been
behind. It could be pretty
ugly early. We have to get it
figured out soon and get
some chemistry going."
Malone does return six
regulars from last year's
team, led by senior ace
Derek Orshall, who was
dominant as a sophomore in
2009 before battling nag-
ging injury issues last sea-
The big lefty still finished
with a 6-1 record and a 1.79
Earned Run Average last
season, while also batting
.317 at the plate.
"Orshall is obviously a
big part of everything,"
Harkrider said. "He's the
No. 1 pitcher and our best
hitter. We're going to have
to count on him to have a
big year, especially with
him being a senior. He'll be
our go-to guy."
- Mark Skinner/Floridan
Pittman and Henson were
the two leading hitters for
the Tigers last season, com-
bining for 50 hits and 28
RBI, with Henson adding a
team best four home runs.
No other Malone hitter
hit over .300 'last year, and
the Tigers will have to
depend on mostly under-
classmen to step up and fill
the production void offen-
"We'll be real young,"
Harkrider said. "Some of
these younger guys from
last year will be hitting up
in the order this year. It will
be a wait and see approach.
I've honestly got no clue
about the batting order yet,
so we've got to get that fig-
The only thing that's cer-
tain is that Orshall will bat
third. Everything after that
is still to be decided, with
junior Nick Breeden, soph-
omore Hunter Dillard, and
freshmen Jonathan Sikes
and Robert Orshall all can-
didates to hit up in the order.
"It will be real fluid,"
Harkrider said of the lineup.
"We'll mix it up until we
find a combination that
With offense still a mys-
tery, the Tigers will have to
rely on pitching and defense
to win games, just as it often
did last season.
"With Derek on the
mound, we'll be OK, and I
think we'll be OK defen-
sively," Harkrider said. "I
just don't know how we're
going to score. We're not
going to score eight or nine
runs per game. We'll have
to pitch and play defense,
play some small ball, move
runners around, and hope

Grand Ridge girls take two over Malone
BY SHELIA MADER
The Grand Ridge Lady
Indians picked up their first
win of the season Tuesday
afternoon on the road
against county rival Malone.
The 'A' team won handily
16-1 against a very young
Malone team, while the 'B'
team picked up a 10-2 victo-
In game one, Brooke
Williams got the nod in the
circle for the Lady Indians,
going two innings, facing
six batters with four strike-
outs, no hits, and no walks.
Lindsey Eubanks closed
out the game, facing six bat-
ters, allowing two hits, two
walks, with one run scored.
Alisha Jackson scored the
lone Lady Tigers run when
she drew a walk and scored
on a single by Sabra
Caroline Floyd picked up
the other hit for Malone.
For Grand Ridge,
Williams was 2 for 2 with
two walks and three runs
scored, followed by Emily
Edge, who was 2 for 3 with
two runs scored.
Lindsey Eubanks was 3
for 4 with three runs scored,
while Casey Grover drew a
walk, reached on an error,
and scored twice.
Kailee Cain was 1 for 2
with a run scored, while
Brandi Walton was 1 for 3
with two runs scored.
* Christin Suber reached on
an error and drew a walk,
scoring one run, followed by
Cara Pyke, who drew a pair
of walks and scored twice.
In 'B' team action,
Makayla Durden started in
the circle for the Lady
Indians, giving up two runs
in the first inning before
being relieved by Bailee
Childs in the second to close
out the game.
Childs went three innings,
gave up no runs, one hit, and
Following the game,
Grand Ridge coach Tony
Gurganus praised his team's
"Our hitting was really
impressive," he said. "Out of
30 at-bats, we only had three
strikeouts. I'm really proud
of the girls."

The Graceville Lady
Tigers' playoff run ended
right after it started last sea-
son, falling to Ponce De
Leon 49-45 in the first round
of the 2A playoffs.
Tonight, the Lady Tigers
will look to take the first
step towards a deep tourna-
ment run when they host the
Baker Lady Gators at 7 p.m.
Graceville (21-5) made it
to the regional finals two
years igo before being
knocked out by FAMU 62-
52 in Tallahassee.
The Lady Tigers played
the first two games that
postseason at home, and
they're hoping that being
back in their home gym will
make the difference this sea-

night in Quincy in the
semifinals .of the District 2-
The Tigers started slow,
leading only 8-4 after one
But the tournament's No.

gear in the second quarter,
out-scoring the Warriors
17-4 to go up 25-8 at the

"In the first quarter, we
had a slow start. We missed
some. easy ones, and they
made some easy ones,"
Tigers coach Steven Welch
said. "Being 8-4 at the end
of the first quarter makes
you think about some
things, but we loosened up
and put them away."
Ty Baker led Malone
with 11 points, with Austin
Williams and Marcus
Leonard adding 10 each,
Chai Baker nine, and
Antwain Johnson seven.
The win sets' up a
rematch of last year's
against the FAMU Baby
Rattlers on Friday at 7 p.m.
FAMU defeated Malone
for last season's district
title, and the two teams
split their regular season
match-ups this year, each
winning on the other's
"I think it's a battle of
two pretty evenly matched
teams," Welch said. "Both
games (in the regular sea-
son) came down to the
wire. They're long, strong,
athletic, and they've got a
bunch of seniors. I think we
shoot it a little better than
they do, but maybe they're
a little quicker. I anticipate
it being a really good one."
Malone swept the two
regular season meetings
before last year's title
game. However, Welch said
that after losing to the Baby
Rattlers in two of the last
three meetings, FAMU is
not sneaking up on anyone.

Stuck in so-called marriage
Dear Annie: I am 26 and have been living
with my "husband" for a year. We had a reli-
gious ceremony, but didn't file the legal
paperwork. Now I realize it was a huge mis-
take. I desperately want out of this so-called
"Justin" lied about completing his college
education and was unemployed for the first
six months we were together. He told me he
was applying for jobs, but in n
reality, he spent his days playing
video games and eating junk"
food. Justin finally found part-
time minimum-wage *
employment, but I still do the L ~.1,- e
cleaning, bill-paying and
cooking despite working 50
hours a week compared to his
20. I have asked, begged and -
nagged him to help more, but he refuses
to lift a finger. When I insist, he whines
and takes an hour to do a 20-minute task.
Justin suffers from depression.
Whenever I bring up the idea of an amica-\
ble separation, he either becomes enraged
and throws the furniture, or dissolves into a
sobbing mess and threatens suicide. I, too,
have fought and won my own battle with
depression through therapy, medication and a
wonderful support network. I feel the need to
provide a stable environment for Justin, but
he refuses to seek treatment.
If I leave him, I am terrified he will harm
himself. Justin's parents are less than sympa-
thetic, and he cannot support himself. I have
moved into the second bedroom, and we
haven't haa sex for months. Justin insists we
are married and everything is fine. Our
friends and family have no clue that it's not
legal and our relationship is in shambles. We
live in a small religious community.

Cornered in Kansas
S Dear Kansas: As much as you
want to help Justin, you are not
responsible for his mental health
or his unwillingness to seek treat-
S \ment. At some point, his depend-
, \ ence is self-destructive to both of
you. You could tell him you will
consider staying if he gets ther-
apy immediately. But also talk to
your local clergyperson about your "mar-
riage." Kansas recognizes common-law mar-
riages, and you could, in fact, be legally
bound to Justin. If walking out is not possible,
you may need to file the legal paperwork and
then get an actual divorce or have the mar-
Michael Crichton, who was best known as an
author of science fiction, medical fiction and
thrillers, said, "I am certain there is too much
certainty in the world."
At the bridge table, I am certain it is best to
find a line of play or defense that is a certainty.
Can you see one here? You are in six
spades. West leads the heart seven.
East's opening bid showed a good seven-
card suit and some 6-10 high-card points. You
might have overcalled thrpe no-trump, expect-
ing to be able to keep East out of the game by
holding up your heart ace. But bidding your
good suit could not be considered an error.
Here it hit a big fit with partner, who used two
doses of Blackwood before signing off in six
A good line is to draw the missing trump, ruff
a heart in the dummy, cash the club ace, play a
club to your king, ruff your last heart, cash the
diamond ace, lead a trump to your hand, and
play a diamond to dummy's queen. Here,
though, East would win with his king and return
his last diamond down one.
However, there is a certainty. After drawing
the trump, ruffing one heart, and cashing the
two club winners, do not ruff your third heart.
Instead, discard the diamond five from the
board. East takes the trick but is endplayed. If
he returns a diamond, it is away from his king
into dummy's ace-queen. And if he leads a
heart or a club, South ruffs in one hand and
sluffs his diamond loser from the other hand.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.

you back even further.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20)
- Don't let the thoughtless
behavior of a friend anger you.
If you realize that everybody
has bad moments at times, you
might be able to get past this
misstep and forgive and forget.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
- Just because somebody
asks, doesn't mean you have to
comply with this person's wish-
es. Don't let anybody pressure
you into loanirtg out something
you hold dear.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
- Making demands on some-
one else's time or property

with those who have to work
with you. You might get what
you want now, but at what
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

with someone, make sure it
isn't your own behavior that is
out of line. It will only make you
look worse if blow over selfish-
ly wanting your own way.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
- Don't feel compelled to
respond to questions that are
too personal or none of any-
body's business. Just because
a friend is curious is not a good
enough reason to comply.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -
Strive to keep your wits about
you in all of your one-on-one
dealings with others, especially
if you have to deal with some-
one who is unduly hostile or
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

expect is automatic compliance

rial with any of your to-work-
ers. If you want a favor, ask
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -
Be careful not to get drawn into
the thoughtless actions of a
friend. This person could draw
you into a situation where you'll
be held equally accountable for
his/her reckless behavior.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22)
- Stick-to-itiveness is essen-
tial if you hope to be successful
in what you attempt to do. If

things through to the finish,
don't start the project.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec.
21) Be particularly attentive
to any task you take on, espe-
cially those you consider to be
routine. If you're mind is not on
what you're doing, you could
easily have a mishap.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.

handling of a prized posses-
sion, a mishap could occur
when you're not looking.
Protect what is yours.

"We're excited and happy
to be back home,"
Graceville coach Jon Habali
said Wednesday. "I think
we've won 14 straight home
games, and we're 9-0 at
home this year. We're excit-.
ed to get the home crowd on
our side. Hopefully, we'll
put on a good show."
Baker comes into the
game with a record of 11-9,
having lost to Ponce De
Leon 46-19 in the District 1-
2A championship game.
The Lady Gators did
come within five points of
PDL late in the regular sea-
son, and Habali said he
knows that they're capable
of playing his team tough.
"They're aggressive, and
they deserve to be in the
playoffs. They're a playoff
team," he said. "We're going
to have to come to play to
The Lady Tigers are com-
ing off of a dominant per-
formance against Holmes
County on. Saturday, win-
ning 54-32 in the district
The game was tied 9-9 in
the first quarter, but
Graceville went on an 18-2
run to blow the game open.
It was an impressive
effort for the Graceville
girls, who just a night earli-
er had to rally from a 16-3
early deficit to beat
Cottondale in the semifi-
"We feel great right now
because the girls know that
when we play four quarters
of basketball like we did
Saturday, especially on the
defensive end, we can play
with pretty much anybody,"
Habali said. "The tempo
was there at the start of the
game. That was something
we hadn't seen in the four or
five games prior to the dis-
trict championship. I hope
that carries over throughout
the playoffs. We need it to."

The Tigers also wiltlhave
to find answers on the
mound when Orshall isn't
pitching, as Dunnaway and
Pittman and Henson com-
bined for nearly 74 innings
of work last year.
Breeden pitched 27 2/3
innings last year with a 4.05
ERA, while Sean Henry
pitched 7 1/3 innings.
As the only pitchers other
than Orshall with significant
experience, both will battle
it out for the second pitcher
spot, according to
Sikes could also con-
tribute on the mound.
Raising the degree of dif-
ficulty even more is an
improved district that
Harkrider said makes a
postseason berth a major
"The district will be very
tough. You know that you
have to play at least one real
tough game just to get into
the district championship'
game," the coach said.
"Munroe's got a good team
with some good pitching,
John Paul has got a real
good lefty, Aucilla has got
good pitching and is a solid
team. It's a tough little dis-
The Tigers sputtered
early last season before
going on a run of six wins in
seven games leading up to
their district loss to Munroe.
Harkrider said he could
envision a similar arc to this
season for his team.
'That's kind of the way it
worked out last year, where
we started clicking around
the middle of the year," he
said. "Sometimes, it just
works that way. I hope it
will be that way again this
year. I just don't know
because we haven't been on
the field enough to see."
The Tigers will open the
season Tuesday against
West Gadsden in Malone.

"We're definitely not
going in overconfident," the
coach said. "I don't know if
that was the case last year,
but it's definitely not this
year. We respect them, and
we know what they're capa-
ble of. If we don't do what
we're supposed to do, we'll
lose. We've got to be real
focused. They've got our
attention, so we'll see what
we can do with them."
Welch said the key for his
team Friday will be to keep
an even keel, and not be
overwhelmed by any big

Tigers head coach
"I felt like we matched up
with them pretty good last
year, but in the title game
they made some shots early
and got us on our heels," the
coach said. "The difference
will be getting off to an
early start. We have to main-
tain our composure if things
