CITY GOVERNMENT CHANGES



Sneads city manager




announces retirement


BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
Floridan StaffWriter

Sneads City Manager Ed
Kilpatrick gave town of-
ficials his notice of retire-
ment Monday. It is effec-
tive March 30, but he won't
be back to work in the in-
terim.
Kilpatrick is taking the
rest of the time off in fami-
ly medical leave, to be with
his wife following some
scheduled surgery she is to
undergo.
Kilpatrick has been the
Sneads city manager four
years. He has 20 more years
in thf state retirement pro-
gram, having served as a
correctional officer and a
prison supervisor for a few
years, and as an elected
member of the Jackson
County School Board for
16 years.
His retirement notice
comes a few days after a
Jackson County woman
filed a complaint against
him with the city, alleging
that she "had numerous
encounters" with Kilpat-
rick "that were of unwant-
ed attention, 'comments
and physical touch." In her
handwritten complaint,
the woman alleged that the
encounters occurred at her
place of employment.
."The first encounter
was when (Kilpatrick) was
representing the town of


Sneads at an official cer-
emony," she wrote. "I want
it to stop."
The location of the ref-
erenced ceremony, the
woman's place of employ-
ment, and her name were
redacted from a copy of
the complaint that Kilpat-
rick sept after the Floridan
requested it late last week.
Kilpatrick said his deci-
sion to retire had nothing
to do with the complaint
against him, except in
that it added to an already
"stressful job. He feels he
will be cleared of any
wrongdoing and that the
allegation will prove un-
founded, but declined to
comment further.
He said his decision was
based largely on the fact
that his wife had been ask-
ing him to retire for several
months, and because he
found an advantage in do-
ing so when he reviewed
his retirement options.
"My wife has been press-
ing me to do this for the
past few months," Kil-
patrick said. "I've kind of
considered it for a while. I
turned 55 in January; she
really started putting the
pressure on me after that.
Over the past few months,
I've put some things to-
gether to consider 'the
things available to me, and

School



nutrition



bill hits



hurdles
The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE Agriculture Com-
missioner Adam Putnam's proposal to
take over school food and nutrition pro-
grams received a cool reception Tues-
day from at least a couple members of
the State Board of Education, which
now has those responsibilities.
Board member Roberto Martinez told
Putnam he opposed the measure be-
cause the avowed purposes of the De-
partment of Agriculture and Consumer
Services is to protect Florida's agricul-
ture industry while children are the fo-
cus of the board and state Department
of Education.
"As a matter of policy it's an inherent
conflict of interest," said Martinez, a
Coral Gables lawyer.
Putnam noted that the Texas Depart-
ment of Agriculture gave schoolnu-
trition a high priority after a similar
takeover from school officials who had
given it short shrift compared to other
education issues.
S"I don't see that there is a conflict oth-
er than a bias toward getting as many
healthy fruits and vegetables on the
plate as we possibly can," Putnam said.
Putnam said the bill (SB1312) would
help get more Florida-grown produce
onto school menus particularly during
the winter months.
The bill has been filed in the Senate
but not yet received a committee hear-
ing nor does it have a House compan-
ion.
SThe board did not take an official po-
sition, but reaction was mixed. Dr. A.K.
Desai, a St. Petersburg physician, told
Putnam he supported where he was

Students to take more exams


FCAT to be phased out


BY MORGAN CARLSON
Floridan Staff Writer

This May, Algebra 1 students in
Florida will take an end-of-course
exam developed by the state.
It is the first of a number of end-
of-course exams the state is devel-
oping with the plan to eventually
have one for every course, accord-
ing to FrankWaller, Jackson County
School District middle school and
secondary education director.
The Algebra 1 erid-of-course
exam is the beginning of the phas-
ing out the Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test, or FCAT. This is
the last year high school students
will take the math and science por-
tions of the FCAT.
Rather than the generic FCAT test,
high-school students will eventu-
ally take 24 tests for the 24 credits
needed to graduate, Waller said.
Students must pass all the end-of-
course exams to graduate.
Also, through the Race to the Top
grant program, Florida is work-
ing in conjunction with 24 other
states to develop course objectives
and exams in English, language
arts and mathematics. It's called
the Partnership for Assessment of
Readiness for College and Careers,
or PARCC, according to the Depart-
ment of Education.
In four years, the "common core
assessments" developed through
PARCC will be given in grades 3
through 8 in math and grades 3


through 11 in English and language
arts. High school math will be as-
sessed through end-of-course ex-
ams, according-to the Department
of Education.
The state already has contracts
for end-of-course exams in biology
and geometry for next school year.
U.S. history exams will start in two
years and civics in three years, ac-
cording to information from the
Florida Department of Education.
Last week, the state issued a re-
quest for proposals to find a vendor
that can create tests for hard to as-
sess courses, such as art, music and
band, Waller said. These courses
involve performance, and the state
is trying to find a vendor that can
develop test questions and exams
for them.
.All of the exams will eventually be
computer based. Race to the Top is
helping implement these assess-
ments by funding the cost of the
technology. On Tuesday, the Jack-
son County School Board approved
the purchase of about 200 comput-
ers with Race to the Top funds to
get schools ready for end-of-course
exams, according to Michael Kilts,
district supervisor of federal pro-
grams.
One requirement of Race to the
Top is having annual student as-
sessments to be used for teacher
performance evaluations. The data
from the assessments will show
the performance of an individual
teacher in his or her classroom,


Waller said.
Guidance counselors and tech-
nology coordinators around the
district have already gone through
training to give the end-of-course
exams. The Algebra 1 end-of-course
exam is made up of two 80-minute
sessions. Students taking the exam
must take a practice exam, before
taking the actual end-of-course
exam.
The first year a test is offered, its
use will be phased in by averag-
ing the first and second semester
course grades with the exam score,
Waller said. In subsequent years, it
will be completely pass/fail to re-
ceive credit for the course, Waller
said. Students who fail can retake
the end-of-course exam.
Also at Tuesday's school board
meeting:
> The board approved the pur-
chase of a 2011 Ford Fusion for Ex-
ceptional Student Education, for a
total of $15,224.11.
> The board approved the con-
struction documents for the Grand
Ridge Middle School sewer proj-,
ect. Advertising for bids will begin
Wednesday, said Stuart Wiggins,
district director of facilities, con-
struction and property.
) Approved Superintendent Lee
Miller's recommendation to name
Jennifer See the principal at Cot-
tondale High School, effective July
1, for the 2011-2012 school year.
> Approved the superintendent's
recommendation to name Doug
Powell the principal at Malone
School effective July 1, for the 2011-
2012 school year.

Our Opinion



Proceed slowly



and carefully
S neads will be getting a new city manager at some
point. The current city manager, Ed Kilpatrick, has
retired. And residents go the polls in less than a
month.
The city has an opportunity here. With one of the
three seats up for election an open race, it's a given that
there will be at least one new council member. Sneads
will be getting some new blood, regardless of the out-
come April 12.
The candidates need to confer with the town's
residents, and get a feel for what sort of city manager
Sneads needs. And residents need to button-hole the
candidates and tell them politely what they would
like to see, in terms of the city's future.
There's no rush to find a replacement. In any event,
Sneads will be paying Kilpatrick until the end of this
month, as he takes family medical leave. The decision
to hire, and the drafting of the job description, is best
left to the incoming council after the elections.
Moving slowly and deliberately will help to ensure
Sneads hires the best person available for the job. But
we also feel the vacancy needs to be filled. Sneads city
government is large enough that someone needs to be
at the helm. Asking council members with day jobs to
try and fill in isn't a workable solution.
However tempting it may be to leave the position
open to save money, those "savings" will be eaten up by
lack of coordination and miscommunication. Better to
just hire someone to keep things running smoothly.

Power to the (moderate) people


BY COKIE AND
STEVEN V. ROBERTS

ALM CITY, Fla.
On a trip here to
Florida, President
Obama joined former
Gov. Jeb Bush at a Miami
high school and stressed
their common interest
in education reform.
That night, he made a
cordial reference to Bush
- brother and son of Re-
publican presidents at
a Democratic fundraiser.
When his comments were
greeted with catcalls from
the partisan audience, the
president protested: "No,
no, no, no, now." Then he
added: "I know this is not
a name you often hear
at Florida Democratic
fundraisers."
True. But Obama's com-
ment was part of a delib-
erate strategy he has been
following since the "shel-
lacking" the Democrats
absorbed last November.
As he begins to organize,
his re-election campaign
and road-test possible
themes, the president is
portraying himself as a
bridge-builder, a con-
sensus-maker, someone
who is willing to find
"common ground" with
'Republicans like Bush,
even if it means catcalls
- and worse from his
liberal supporters.
To understand this
strategy, just look at the
results of the 2008 elec-
tion. A lot of attention has
been focused on self-de-
scribed "independents,"


and they are certainly im-
portant. Twenty-nine per-
cent chose that label, and
they favored Obama by 52
percent to 44 percent. But
a more important target is
"moderates," a group that
includes many indepen-
dents but also centrist,
pragmatic members of
both parties. This group
was considerably larger
than independents in
2008 comprising 44
percent of the electorate
- and they voted more
heavily for Obama, 60
percent to 39 percent.
Obama's appeal to these
centrists ran through ev-
erything he did and said
in Florida.
A delegation of teach-
ers gathered outside
the Miami high school,
protesting the president's
embrace of Bush and if
you were a cynic (and
we're not), you might even
suspect that Team Obama
bused in the critics to
emphasize the moderate
message.
At the fundraiser, the
president returned to the
same theme, praising
Republican presidents
from Abraham Lincoln to
Dwight Eisenhower for
investing in infrastructure
improvements like rail-
roads and highways. And
then he declared: "The
biggest contest we face is
not between Democrats
and Republicans. It's
between the United States
and our workers and our
businesses and our econ-
omy and our competitors


around the world."
This is clever and
conscious. The president
is portraying himself as
the leader of the whole
country, not just a party
or a faction, a country
engaged in a global battle
for economic survival.
And how do you object
to that? There's not a big
lobby in Washington that
favors "losing the future."
But there's a paradox
here. At the very moment
that Team Obama is tak-
ing dead aim at moder-
ate voters, Congress has
fewer moderate members
than ever. In fact, moder-
ates are easily the least-
represented group in
American politics.
It has been a cliche
for years, and an accu-
rate one, to lament the
"polarization" on Capitol
Hill, but a new study
by the National Journal
shows exactly how serious
the partisan divide has
become.
In fact, America is ap-
proaching a European
model, with ideological
parties that don't overlap
in the middle and exert
iron discipline over their
members.
In the Congress that
ended in December,
the most conservative
Democratic senator (Ben
Nelson of Nebraska) had a
more liberal voting record
than the most progres-
sive Republicans (George
Voinovich of Ohio and
Susan Collins and Olym-
pia Snowe of Maine).


Thirty years ago, when the
National Journal started
keeping these records,
58 senators occupied the
middle ground between
the polar extremes. Last
year, there were none.
As Trent Lott, the former
Republican leader of the
Senate, told the Journal:
"Over the years, there
is no question that the
middle in the Senate has
shrunk considerably."
If anything, the House
has seen an even more
dramatic shift toward
ideological purity. In
1982, 334 House mem-
bers posted ratings
somewhere between the
most liberal Republican
and most conservative
Democrat. By last year,
the number had shriveled
to seven, and today all
but one of them Re-
publican Walter Jones of
North Carolina has left
Congress.
There are many reasons
for this pattern, but one
of the most important is
the rise of vocal advocates
and pressure groups
- centered in cable TV,
talk radio and the blogo-
sphere that demand
ideological purity and
threaten reprisal against
anyone who dares to stray
from party orthodoxy.
In this world of shrill
shouters, moderates have
virtually no voice. But
Obama knows they still
hold the key to his re-
election. And he.intends
to speak to them and for
them.


Obama must force Gadhafi's ouster


BY MORTON KONDRACKE

A s Libyan dictator
Moammar Gadhafi
S savages his people
in a bid to stay in power
and the Obama admin-
istration dithers about a
response, the question
arises: Haven't we seen
this movie before?
In 1956, when Hungar-
ians rebelled against
their Communist rul-
ers, Radio Free Europe
cheered them on and led
them to think America
would come to their aid.
Of course, we didn't aid
Soviet troops crushed the
revolt.
In 1991, after U.S.-led
forces ousted Saddam
Hussein from Kuwait and
all but destroyed his army,
President George H.W
Bush urged Iraqis to oust
Saddam from power, then
stood idle as his Republi-
can Guards killed tens of
thousands of Shiite and
Kurdish rebels.
In the early 1990s, too,
the Bush and Clinton
administrations did ef-
fectively nothing as Serbs
massacred and raped
Bosnians and'ethnic
Albanians in the Balkans
- until finally President
Bill Clinton bypassed the
United Nations to order
NATO airstrikes to halt


the fighting.
As well, the United
States armed Islamists in
Afghanistan when they
were fighting the Soviet
Union in the 1980s, then
abandoned the country.
Here we go again. After
long days of silence as
Libyans rose up against
Gadhafi, President Barack
Obama declared last week
that the dictator "needs
to step down from power
and leave."
But, as to action that
would force that result,
the administration seems
decidedly indecisive, with
Secretary of State Hillary
Rodham Clinton refer-
ring to the possibility of
a "no-fly zone" to pre-
vent Libyan planes from
bombarding rebels, and
Defense Secretary Robert
Gates all but flatly ruling
it out.
The administration is
providing humanitarian
aid and is consulting with
allies but apparently will
not take decisive action
without U.N. approval.
Obama also may be
conflicted because popu-
lar rebellions are under
way in countries friendly
to the United States -
notably Bahrain, Jordan
and Egypt and he may
fear that intervention in
Libya would imply similar


action in those countries.
Such fears should not
determine U.S. policy.
The United States surely
can distinguish between a
madman using terror and
an authoritarian using
tear gas and truncheons.
For in places where
restive populations are
demanding reform or new
governments, Sen. Lamar
Alexander, R-Tenn., last
week floated a proposal
made to him by Israeli
Prime Minister Benjamin
Netanyahu for a western
Marshall Plan using non-
governmental funds to
provide schools, clinics
and clean water.
The similarity to the
original Marshall Plan,
according to Alexander, is
that the recipient coun-
tries would design their
own programs rather than
having the United States
impose its ideas. The
projects would have to be
attractive enough to win
private support.
For various reasons
- notably past support
for dictators the United
States is deeply unpopu-
lar in most of the Arab
world. Promoting reform
and organizing effective
development programs
can only help build a
more favorable image.
And so would effective


action to rid Libya of
Gadhafi. A "no-fly zone"
might not be the most
effective method in as
much as fighter planes are
not the dictator's domi-
nant method of beating
back rebels.
He is using helicopters,
tanks, loyalist troops and
mercenaries imported
from sub-Saharan Africa.
To counter them mili-
tarily, the United States
would have to engage in
ground combat, which
is not an option for a
military already fighting
two wars.
Better ideas have been
pressed on Obama by
Republicans such as Sens.
John McCain (Ariz.) and
Mitch McConnell (Ky.), in-
cluding weapons, ammu-
nition, intelligence and
training for anti-Gadhafi
rebels.
With the right kind of
arms such as shoul-
der-fired missiles and
anti-tank weapons the
rebels might be able to
defeat Gadhafi's forces.
Of course there is.no
guarantee that the regime
taking over from Gad-
hafi would be friendly
to the United States, but
it's clear that if Gadhafi
stays in power, he will be
hostile, possibly returning
to terrorism.

NYC bus driver's trail before fatal crash probed


The Associated Press

ALBANY, N.Y. Investigators
looking into a weekend tour bus
crash in New York City that killed
15 people are focusing on the
driver, a man with a decades-old
manslaughter conviction who
was not supposed to be driving
because he never resolved sev-
eral traffic tickets.
The bus driver, Ophadell Wil-
liams, was ticketed in 1995 for
speeding and twice for driving
without a license, giving police
the alias Erik Williams, two state
officials familiar with the acci-
dent probe told The Associated
Press on Monday. Williams' driv-
ing privileges were suspended,
meaning he couldn't legally drive
in the state, after he failed to ad-
dress the charges.
Thebus crash occurred Satur-
day as gamblers were returning
to New York City's Chinatown
neighborhood, in downtown
Manhattan, after a few hours
at the Mohegan Sun casino in.
Uncasville, Conn. The bus was
sheared in half by a sign pole.
On Monday night, another
company's tour bus from Chi-
natown to Philadelphia crashed
on the New Jersey Turnpike, kill-
ing the driver and a passenger.
About 40 people were hospital-
ized.
National Transportation Safety
Board investigators said they
were looking at Williams' last 72
hours before the Saturday crash,
checking the casino's surveil-
lance video.
"We want to know what he ate,
what he drank and how much
he slept," NTSB vice chairman
Christopher Hart said.
Investigators zeroed in on the
40-year-old Williams' record af-


ter his story that his tour bus was
clipped by a tractor-trailer fell
apart when passengers and wit-
nesses said it never happened.
Investigators are trying to fol-
low Williams' steps by matching
Social Security numbers of traf-
fic stops under different names,
the officials said, speaking to the
AP on condition of anonymity
because of the sensitivity of the
investigation. Williams also had
an incomplete log book, which
is required for commercial driv-
ers, the officials said.
The revelations aboutWilliams,
who has a 20-year-old man-
slaughter conviction, prompted
Gov. Andrew Cuomo to launch
a state investigation into how
Williams was able to hold a valid
commercial driver's license at
the time of Saturday's-crash.
-Telephone calls to Williams'
Brooklyn home were unan-
swered Monday.Aspokesman for
the bus company that employed
him, World Wide Travel, declined
to comment, on the instructions
of federal investigators.
Williams was convicted of
crimes using two aliases. He
served just more than two years
for manslaughter for.his role in
a stabbing in 1990, state correc-
tion records show. He initially
had been charged with second-
degree murder.
Williams served about three
years, from 1998 to the middle
of 2002, for grand larceny for re-
moving an $83,905 check from a
Police Athletic League fund, cor-
rectional services spokeswoman
Linda Foglia said. .
* He also was arrested by New
York City police on June 4, 2003,
for driving with a suspended
license and for possession of
three police radios. In 1987, he


was arrested on charges of trying
to get on public transportation
without paying.
There are no federal regula-
tions that would prohibit states
from issuing a license to a bus
driver with a criminal record,
said Duane DeBruyne, a spokes-
man for the Federal Motor Car-
rier Safety Administration.
Hart, the NTSB vice chairman,
said the bus and the tractor-
trailer had black box-like engine
control modules that might have
stored information. He said the
module from the bus had been
sent to the NTSB lab in Washing-
ton, D.C., for downloading; the
tractor-trailer was impounded.
Hart identified the owner of
the tractor-trailer as Webster
Trucking Company of Connecti-
cut and Massachusetts and said
it was cooperating.
He said officials were bringing
in extra equipment to inspect
the left front side of the bus to
check the driver's account.
State police have identified all
but two of the victims. Officials
said most were of Chinese de-
scent.
Sai Ling, 57, lost her parents,
Kam and Yuk Ng, in the crash.
She said her father, a former
cook, had gone to the casinos for
manyyears, but her mother, a re-
tired garment worker, had begun
to accompany him in the last few
months after her sister died.
"He didn't want to see her cry-
ing every day," Ling said.
Ling said her parents had lived
in the U.S. for 30 years and left
seven grandchildren.
"This bus driver took their
lives," she said. "They were in
good health. They expected to
live another 10 years." .
The casino has a lounge for bus


THEASSOCIATED PRESS
Emergency personnel respond to the bus crash on Interstate 95 in the
Bronx borough of New York on March 12.


drivers with coffee, soda, snacks
and televisions, Mohegan Sun
President Jeff Hartmann said.
He said he did not know whether
Williams was in the lounge be-
fore the trip.
"We don't keep track of them.
They're on their own," he told
the AP
He said the casino was coop-
erating with police. The bus was
one of scores that travel daily
between Chinatown and.the ca-
sinos in southeastern Connecti-
cut. The Mohegan Sun caters
to Chinese-American gamblers
and has estimated that one-fifth
of its business comes from Asian
spending. Hartmann said 44,000
buses visit the casino annually


from around the region.
Williams, who was released
from a hospital Sunday, was at
home Monday but did not ap-
pear outside. His friend and
neighbor Francisco Rivera said
he was a safe driver.-
"I think something else hap-
pened. ... I've been in a car
with him several times and I've
never seen him drive crazy ... or
swerve," Rivera said.
He said there was a death in
Williams' family this year and a
younger brother was lost "to the
streets."
"And now this happens to
him," he said. "Everybody's just
messed up in the family right
now."


Police examine wreck in NJ Turnpike bus crash


The Associated Press

EAST BRUNSWICK, N.J.
Police on Tuesday were
examining the wreckage
of a bus to try to figure out
why it crashed as it trav-
eled from New York City's
Chinatown to Philadel-
phia, killing the driver and
a passenger and injuring
Several others.
The one-vehicle crash
Monday night on the New
Jersey Turnpike one of
the nation's most heav-
ily trafficked highways -
happened- just days after
a bus from a Connecticut
casino crashed as it was re-
turning to New York City's
Chinatown neighborhood,
killing 15 people.
In Monday's accident,
driver WeiWang, a 50-year-
old Taiwanese national
who lived in Forest Hills,


N.Y., was thrown through
the windshield, and sev-
eral passengers were badly
injured, state police Sgt.
Stephen Jones said.
Passenger Troy Nguyen,
20, of Royersford, Pa., died
after being transported to
a hospital in New Bruns-
wick. Police said Nguyen
had been partially ejected
from a driver's side win-
dow.
Forty-one other passen-
gers were sent to hospitals.
Louis Pierre, 50, of Phila-
delphia and 70-year-old
David Choi, of Lansdale,
Pa., were in critical condi-
tion, Jones said. They are
believed to have been sit-
ting in the rear of the bus,
police said. State police
weren't sure how many
other passengers remained
hospitalized as of Tuesday
afternoon.


Preliminary evidence
suggests the bus, operated
by a Pennsylvania com-
pany, was traveling south
on the turnpike at around
9 p.m. Monday when the
crash occurred just south
of Exit 9 in East Brunswick,
about 40 miles southwest
of Manhattan. The vehicle
went off the road onto the
grassy median before strik-
ing a, concrete overpass
support, Jones said.
The white bus came to a
stop at an angle, its'dam-
aged front section pointed
off the highway.
The cause of the crash
hadn't been determined,
and the investigation could
take several weeks. The
medical examiner's office
will perform an autopsy on
the driver to determine if
he suffered any medical is-
sue prior to the crash.


The bus was moved to an
impound lot, where state
police said it would be in-
spected and all available
data would be taken from
its electronic components.
The bus was operated by

Amid high demand, states cut mental health care


The Associated Press

DENVER -, At the Ohio
Department of Mental
Health, Christy Murphy's
days are filled with calls
from people seeking help
she can't seem to give. They
plead, but budget cuts
.have trimmed services so
much that she is not sure
where-to send them.
The desperation on the
other end of the line hits
painfully close to home for
Murphy. Her 19-year-old
son, Christopher, suffers
from a range of mental
problems, including one
that's linked to a short-
tempered, hostile attitude.
Although he has coverage
through Medicaid, he can't
get the services he needs.
His mother says he has no
S-psychiatrist, no case man-
ager and no medication.
"I think it's 100 percent
about money," said Mur-
phy, who lives in Colum-
bus with her son.
An onslaught of budget
cuts has hit mental health
services in states strug-
Sgling to weather economic
woes. Even in better times,
help could be hard to find.
Now, just as demand is
soaring, billions of dollars
in cuts have shuttered fa-
cilities, prolonged waiting
times to get services and
'purged countless patients
'from the rolls.
"We're getting some


epidemic-proportion de-
mands for services," said
Mary Ruiz, chief execu-
tive at the Manatee Glens
mental health facility in
Bradenton, Fla., which has
had to cut charity care for
the indigent by $2 million
a year.
State mental health
funding was on a steady
upward trajectory for three
decades until the Great
Recession hit in 2007. Over
the last two fiscal years,
states have cut a combined
$1.8 billion from the public
mental health system, ac-
cording to a recent report
by the National Alliance
for Mental Illness, an ad-
vocacy group that tracks
mental health spending in
all 50 states.
All of this comes as ex-
perts see the dueling eco-
nomic stresses ofjob losses
and home foreclosures es-
calating depression, anxi-
ety and suicide. Nine state
mental health agencies
have reported increased
emergency-room visits for
psychiatric care since the
recession began, and five
more reported higher sui-
cide rates.
The cuts have hit every
aspect of state behavioral
health systems, which
served 6.4 million people
nationwide in 2009, ac-
cording to the most cur-
rent federal government
statistics. Only four states


made no cuts to mental
health services between
fiscal 2009 and the fiscal
year that will end in 2012,
according to the National
Association of State Mental
Health Program Directors.
"I'm begging for help.
Begging. And there's no
one who can help me,"
said Sandra Roskilly of
Denver, whose 15-year-old
son Gregory left the Colo-
rado Mental Health Insti-
tute at Fort Logan when its
children's ward was shut-
tered last year due to bud-
get cuts.
Roskilly's son has re-
turned home, where his
grandmother has moved
in to help care for him.
But she worries the boy
is getting worse without
residential treatment,
sometimes breaking fur-
niture and shoving his
grandmother. She won-
ders aloud if he might pose
a threat to others without
the proper care.
"What's going to happen
when he kills somebody?"
she remembers asking a
doctor.
Mental health advocates
often say every dollar cut
from their budgets ends
up being spent elsewhere,
particularly in prisons. In
some instances, violent
crimes involving the men-
tally ill have raised new
questions about the risks
of funding cuts.


An Idaho man released
from a state mental health
program faces felony
charges after a shooting
last year that wounded a
man walking out of a cof-
fee shop. Emergency room
nurses from Ohio to Ver-
mont have reported being
attacked by patients seek-
ing psychiatric services in
recent years.
Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer,
whose adult son is men-
tally ill, took office in Janu-
ary 2009 as an advocate
for mental health and
persuaded lawmakers to
restore $18 million in pro-
posed midyear budget cuts
to social programs, includ-
ing behavioral health.
But two years later, tough
times have led Brewer to
call for dropping 280,000
people from Medicaid
coverage, including an es-
timated 5,000 adults with
serious mental illnesses.
Over the past two years,
Arizona cut counseling,
case management and
virtually all other services
except medication.
SMore than half the states
surveyed by the state men-
tal health association have
cut staff at state mental
health agencies and re-
duced funding for com-
munity mental health ser-
vices. Of those, almost half
closed state mental hospi-
tals or wards. Nationwide,
states closed 2,158 beds for

mentally ill patients over
the last three years, and
another 1,772 beds maybe
closed next year to meet
budget cuts, the organiza-
tion says.
In Colorado, staffing at
state mental health hos-
pitals is so short that the
state no longer complies
with federal Medicaid and
Medicare funding rules,
putting some $14 million
at risk for next fiscal year
Lawmakers responded
by adding enough money
to hire five nurses at two
mental-health hospitals.
"They are so severely un-
derstaffed it has become
a serious safety issue for
patients and caregivers,"
Colorado state Sen. Mary
Hodge said.
Texas ranks near the bot-
. tom in per-capita mental


health spending, one of
nine states that spend $66
or less per person, and of-
ficials there have proposed
cutting an additional $134
million in mental health
services in the 2012 and
2013 fiscal years. Those
cuts could mean imme-
diately halting behavioral
health services for thou-
sands, even though Texas
sheriffs have complained
the cuts would mean more
mentally unstable people
ending up in county jails.
"Mental health is right
down there at the bot-
tom of the priority list, it
seems," said Colleen Hor-
ton, policy program direc-
tor for the Hogg Founda-
tion at the University of
Texas-Austin, which ad-
vocates for mental health
services in that state.


Va. mountain sniper made final call to wife


The Associated Press

SVANSANT, Va. A snip-
'er who shot four sheriff's
deputies with a high-pow-
ered rifle, killing two, was
'talking to his wife on a cell
phone as police closed
in on him, telling her he
was about to die. When he
pulled out a pistol, police
shot him to death.
Authorities were trying
to figure out why a call
about a suspected robbery
at a salvage yard in rural
southwest Virginia led to
a shootout with deputies a
day earlier. The gunman's
motive wasn't clear, though
Randy Newberry's car had
been impounded at the
yard, and authorities didn't
think he had any previous
'"run-ins with police.
Newberry, 52, hid be-
hind a tree and shot the
- first deputy to respond to
the robbery report, Shane
Charles, 25, authorities


and a witness said. A few
minutes later, Eric Ras-
nake, 32, was wounded.
The officers were in criti-
cal condition Monday at
separate hospitals. Depu-
ties Cameron Justus, 41,
and William Stiltner, 46,
were later killed-by New-
berry, authorities said, as
they helped set up a search
perimeter less than two
miles from the salvage
yard.
Roger Daniels, owner
of Roger's Service Center,
called police after a neigh-
bor doing yard work across
the street from his business
noticed Newberry and his
vehicle on the property.
Daniels told The Associat-
ed Press that he asked the
man to block the vehicle so
it couldn't pull away.
When Daniels arrived
at the small lot between
steep hillsides, Deputy
Charles was going through
Newberry's car. Daniels


said he looked up, saw the
suspect's silhouette behind
a tree and pointed him out
to Charles.
"We knew his name be-
cause of the registration
in the car," Daniels said.
"And so I called his name, I
told him to come on down.
(Charles) called his name."
They started walking to-
ward Newberry, who raised
hisrifle.
"We'd seen it," Daniels
said. "At that time we hit
the ground."
Charles took cover be-
hind his police SUV, while
Daniels dove underneath a
pickup truck.
"A big man trying to get
underneath that thing, you
can dig a hole with your
feet you think you can't
'dig," Daniels said.
Charles yelled to New-
berry "'let me see your
hands'" several times,
Daniels said. Newberry
didn't say a word, but fired


an estimated 50 rounds.
"I've been in the military
and I've never had that
much fire drawn on me at
one time," Daniels said.'
Several bullets pierced
the windshield and back
window of the SUV Behind
it, Charles lay wounded. A
few minutes later, the sec-
ond officer was hit.
Newberry then fled. The
manhunt ended a couple
of hours later in James
Conley's front yard about
a quarter mile away. New-
berry asked if. he could
use a phone and called his
wife. As police closed in
through a neighbor's yard,
Newberry told his wife,
"'They're going to kill me,'"
according to Conley.
Officers ordered New-
berry to the ground. He
had his back to them and
ignored their commands.
Conley said, "They never
did shoot at him-- until he.
pulled a pistol out."


State cites Notre Dame violations in student death


The Associated Press

SOUTH BEND, Ind.
Indiana regulators
fined Notre Dame $77,500
on Tuesday for six safety
violations in the October
death of a 20-year-old stu-
dent who was killed when
Lthe hydraulic lift he was on
,toppled over in high winds
while he was filming foot-
ball practice.
The school failed to
maintain safe working con-
ditions or heed National
Weather Service warnings
on a day wind speeds in
the area reached 53 mph,
-the Indiana Department of
Labor said.
S"The evidence over-
Swhelmingly demonstrated
-that the university made
''a decision to utilize its
'"scissor lifts in known ad-
verse weather conditions,"
,, agency Commissioner Lori
, Torres said.
Declan Sullivan, a junior
film. student from Long
Grove, Ill., died Oct. 27 af-
ter the lift he was on fell
-over. Less than an hour
earlier, he had tweeted his
concerns about what he
described as "terrifying"
weather.
"Gusts of wind up to 60
mph today will be fun at
work ... I guess I've lived
long enough," he wrote.
The scissor lift was not
,,supposed to be used in
.,winds above 28 mph, but
";the weather service had
Issued a warning saying
winds of 25 mph to 35 mph
were expected with gusts
J of up to 45 mph. Torres


said the university was at
fault for allowing Sullivan
to be in the lift after the
weather service had issued
the advisory.
The school has untilApril
7 to accept the findings
and pay the fines, contest
the safety orders or meet
with the agency.
University spokesman
Dennis Brown said the
school had no immediate
response because officials
were reviewing the report.
The Rev. John Jenkins, the
university president, said
in an e-mail in Novem-
ber to students, faculty,
staff and alumni that the
school was responsible for
Sullivan's death because it
failed to protect him.


Sullivan's parents, Barry
and Alison, issued a state-
ment saying they appreci-
ated the thorough investi-
gation.
"This report is an impor-
tant step in preventing fu-
ture accidents, but its find-
ings do not change the fact
that Declan is not with us,"
they wrote.
Sullivan's uncle, Mike
Miley, said the report
hadn't changed the fam-
ily's opinion, saying they
hope others will learn from
Sullivan's death and take
appropriate safety steps in
the future.
The other violations in-
cluded a failure to make
annual, monthly or weekly
inspections of the lifts for

Members of the Jackson County School Board were joined by Jackson County business people to ceremonially break ground for the
new Riverside Elementary School cafeteria Tuesday.


Retires
From Page 1A
I became aware that I had some
favorable retirement options."
Kilpatrick said the complaint
played into his decision in just
one way.
"The complaint wasn't a factor,
but some of -the undercurrents
associated with it may have
played a role," he said. "The job
is very stressful. When I took this
job, I had good friends tell me I
had no idea the kind of stress
this was going to put on me and
my family. Small town politics
and all, it is a high stress job. The
cumulative effect of that stress is
probably not healthy for anyone,
and a certain amount of it you
take home with you."
Kilpatrick said the town coun-
cil did not ask for his resigna-
tion.
He doubts he'll take another
full-time job anytime soon, if
ever, and plans to spend time in
the immediate future working
with his horses, vacationing and
taking care of his wife after her
surgery.
"I have plenty to do," he said.
Kilpatrick said that, in any case,
ae had no illusions the city man-


ager job would last for decades.
"I really considered my em-
ployment as town manager as
a month-to-month situation,
because at any given moment
three of them can decide they
don't want you there and you
can be gone," he said. "You know
you serve at the pleasure of the
board, and given the history
of city managers never staying
there very long, none more than
three years before me, I consid-
er it a minor miracle that I was
there for four.
"The best predictor of future
behavior is past behavior, so I
knew that my employment could
be over at any time."
Kilpatrick acknowledged
.there's likely to be speculation
over the timing of his retirement,
but said he is not concerned
about that.
"People will say whatever they
want to, but I'm not running
from anything and I'm not afraid
of anything," he said. "Those
near and dear to me say, 'Why
have you waited this long?' Since
I'm so confident that this is go-
ing to be unfounded, there's no
need to wait on my retirement
until it is resolved."
The harassment complaint was
forwarded to the Florida League


of Cities for review shortly after
it was received by the city. That
report has not been finalized,
but the investigation is expected
to continue to completion, said
Sneads Town Council President
Mike Weeks.
STown attorney Guy Green had
recently requested that Weeks
call a special session soon to
discuss thM complaint and how
to move forward in light of it,
Weeks said.
That meeting'is no longer con-
sidered necessary.
With Kilpatrick's retirement
effective immediately, Weeks
said the town's three remaining
employees and members of the
council will take up the slack, at
least for now. The city employs a
city clerk, a deputy clerk and an
administrative clerk.
"We plan to pull together,"
Weeks said. "The employees will
take care .of any business they
can, and we'll take care of any-
thing that needs to be brought
before council as a whole. For
instance, Ed would go ahead
and issue development orders
on certain things, but now this
will fall back in the lap of the
council.
* "Things are a lot different now
as far as city government, there's


a lot of things that, day to day,
are going to put the work load
back on the ladies at city hall."
The city council will have to
decide whether to re-advertise
the city manager's position, or
leave it unfilled.
Weeks said he will recommend
that the council delay that deci-
sion until after the upcoming
city elections, set for April 12.
"I feel like the proper thing
would be to wait until after the
election," he said. "I've got mixed
emotions about whether we'd be
better off with or without a city
manager, mixed feelings about
whether to re-advertise it. On
one hand, I think that we could
operate fine without a city man-
ager, but then again there's a lot
to running a town nowadays."
When Sneads first decided
to have a city manager several
years, Weeks was in favor of it.
The city had grants coming in at
that time and it seemed to make
sense to have someone in house
who could write a grant, and to
help the city grow and develop,
while the council set and imple-
mented policy, Weeks noted.
Weeks also made reference to.
the fact that the city will have the
money that would have piid Kil-
patrick's salaryto workwith, once


his retirement date is reached.
Kilpatrick made $36,000 when
he was hired, and was making
$41,300 when he announced his
retirement. Weeks said 'the city
has, off and on, considered hir-
ing a recreation director but nev-
er had the money. Some might
,consider this a funding source
for that position in lieu of hiring
a new city manager.
Week said he could also see
using the money to take care of
some infrastructure and other
needs. He said he will be weigh-
ing several factors in deciding
-how to vote, whether the issue
is decided before the election or
after, should he be re-elected.
The issue of whether a city
manager is necessary may be-.
come a last-minute campaign
issue in Sneads. There are three
seats on the April ballot.
Weeks is up for re-election,
against opponent Sammy McAl-
pin; incumbent Jimmy Lynn
Wright faces Wayne McClamma
Jr.
City council member Greg
Lewis has decided not to seek
re-election, and there are several
candidates in the race to fill his
seat:, Helen Grice, Paula Stone,
Butch Edwards and Patricia Lin-


Florida House set for vote



today on teacher pay, tenure


The Associated Pres's

TALLAHASSEE Republican-
sponsored legislation setting up
a merit pay plan for teachers and
ending tenure for new hires is set for
a final vote in the GOP-controlled
Florida House on Wednesday 11
months after former Gov. Charlie
Crist vetoed a similar bill.
The new version is designed to
mirror Florida's plan for a $700 mil-
lion federal Race to the. Top educa-
tion grant that includes a move to
merit pay. Opponents, though, say it
goes beyond that blue print by chip-
ping away at teachers' due process
and collective bargaining rights.'
In floor action Wednesday, the
House rejected four Democratic
amendments that would have ad-
dressed some of those issues in the
Senate-passed bill (SB 736).
The House sponsor, Rep. Erik Fre-
sen, R-Miami, declared them to be
"unfriendly" to the bill's intent.
"The purpose of crafting this bill is
actually to have an ability to deter-

coming from while Kathleen Shana-
han, a Tampa businesswoman who
had served as chief of staff for for-
mer Gov. Jeb Bush, said the legisla-
tion should include periodic reports
to the board on such details as calo-
rie counts.
Board member John Padget said
' school nutrition should be a shared
responsibility and that he hoped
Florida would adopt strict nutrition
standards recommended by the in-
stitute of Medicine. He held up two
drink bottles sold in schools, one


mifie what a good teacher is," Fre-
sen said. "That's it."
The legislation would require
school districts to develop evalu-
ation schemes based half on how
much improvement each teacher's
students have shown on the Florida
Comprehensive Assessment Test
(FCAT) or other exams over a three-
year period. The other half would
be based on such factors as evalu-
ations by principals. They could in-
clude advanced degrees but only if
in a teacher's subject area.
Those evaluations would be used
to determine which teachers should
get merit pay and which should be
let go.
If passed by the House as expected
the bill would go to Republican Gov.
Rick Scott, who has made it one of
his top priorities. Crist, a Republi-
can-turned-independent, vetoed
last year's' bill after widespread
protests by teachers, parents and
students as well as objections from
many local school officials.
Teachers hired after July 1 would

240 calories or the equivalent of 30
sugar cubes.
Putnam responded that beverages
shouldn't be judged solely by calo-
ries.
"Otherwise you would make the
selection of zero-calorie diet cola
over orange juice," he said.
Padget, a former school superin-
tendent from Key West, has been
pushing for restrictions on sugary
drinks, including chocolate milk,
but his proposal has drawn oppo-
sition from the dairy and soft drink
industries.
The board has for now put the
matter on hold to see if the federal


never be able to get more than a
one-year contract.
The defeated amendments in-
cluded one offered by Rep. Reg-
gie Fullwood, D-Jacksonville, .that
would have required school officials
to give terminated teachers written
reasons why they didn't get another
annual contract.
"It's about decency," Fullwood
said. "For your contract not to be re-
newed at least tell me why."
Another failed amendment would
have allowed highly rated teachers
to get three-year contracts. The Sen-
ate also rejected that idea last week.
Existing teachers would have the
option of sticking with. their pres-
ent salary plan or competing for
merit pay. If they choose the latter,
the Florida Education Association,
the statewide teachers union, says
they'd lose their due process right to
challenge pay decisions.
The union also contends the bill
unilaterally eliminates seniority
rights obtained through collective
bargaining.


government will set up national
standards for beverages sold in
schools.
Besides the state legislation, Put-
nam would need a waiver from the
U.S. Department of Agriculture,
which oversees federal school nu-
trition programs.
He noted Texas and New Jersey
have obtained such waivers and that
Florida's legislation includes a nutri-
tion education component needed
to meet federal requirements.
Martinez, though, said Florida is
different from those states because
Texas and New Jersey education
officials didn't want to administer
their programs.

Obama's team seeks new ways to fire up his base


The Associated Press

WASHINGTON-- Barack
Obama rode a wave of
voter passion in 2008 fed
largely by intense dislike of
President George W. Bush
and the Iraq war, plus ex-
citement among young
and minority voters at the
notion of electing the na-
tion's first black president.
Now, as Obama cranks
up his re-election cam-
paign, all those factors are
absent.
The president has many
tools, of course, for inspir-
ing and exciting potential
voters. But he faces a dif-
ferent landscape, one in
which key supporters are
disappointed by, conces-
sions he has made to Re-
publicans, and discour-
aged by huge Democratic
losses last fall.
Obama acknowledged
the challenge last week in
Boston. "Somebody asked
me, how do we reinvigo-
rate the population, the
voter, after two very tough
years?" he told Democratic
donors. "How do we re-
capture that magic that
got so many young people
involved for the very first
time in 2008?"
One answer, the presi-
dent said, is to persuade
hardcore liberals to swal-
low their anger over politi-
cal compromises the ad-
ministration reached with
Republicans, even when
Democrats controlled both
chambers of Congress.
Obama's concessions
include dropping his pro-


posed public option for
health insurance, and ex-
tending Bush-era tax cuts
for the wealthiest.
"There's no weakness in
us trying to reach out and
seeing if we can find com-
mon ground," the presi-
dent said.
Despite his pleas, many
Obama supporters clearly
are disappointed. When
he was inaugurated, 83
percent of Democrats said
they expected his presi-
dency to be above average,
and nearly half predicted
it would be "outstanding,"
an AP-GfK poll found. Two
years later, 68 percent of
Democrats rated it above
average so far, and just 20
percent called it outstand-
ing.
Last fall's elections were
a disaster not only for the
hundreds of Democrats
voted out of Congress, gov-
ernorships and state legis-
latures. They raised, ques-
tions about Obama, too.
Thirty-seven percent of
voters told exit pollsters
they cast ballots explicitly
to oppose the president,
while 23 percent said their
votes represented support
for him.
Top Obama aides say
things will look better by
mid-2012, for several rea-
sons.
They say GOP-led efforts
to end state workers' col-
lective bargaining rights in
Wisconsin and elsewhere
are dramatically galvaniz-
ing the labor movement, a
key' Democratic constitu-
ency. Some union activists


wish Obama would speak
up more forcefully for
them. But campaign aides
say they think he is walking
the right line by supporting
unions without appearing
unduly beholden to them.
Another key group, gays
and lesbians, may shrug
off several disappoint-
ments-and work hard for
Obama's re-election be-
cause he signed legislation
beginning the repeal of the
Pentagon's "don't ask, don't
tell" policy, which barred
gays from serving openly
in the military.
Former White House
press secretary Robert
Gibbs said in an interview
that the president will be.
able to show solid progress
on the economy, education
and other topics that will
persuade dispirited Dem-
ocrats to fight for Obama's
re-election.
These issues will "con-
tinue to animate core sup-
porters of the president,"
Gibbs said, and "get them
passionately involved."
He predicted that Re-
publicans will help by fo-
cusing on undoing Obama
initiatives, such as the
2010 health care overhaul,
rather than offering an ap-
pealing alternative agenda.
"Being against something
is only going to get you so
far," Gibbs said.
Several Democratic ac-
tivists acknowledged that
some black voters are dis-
appointed in Obama, wish-
ing he would do more for
impoverished Americans.
But these voters might be


far more outraged and en-
ergized, the activists say,
by people who say the na-
tion's first black president
was born in Kenya and has
no legal right to be in the
White House.
Some Democrats saythey
may need luck to replicate
the passionate turnout of
Obama's first campaign.
The often-stated claim
that voters would embrace
the health care law once
it began taking effect has
proven mostly untrue. But
another year may change
that, these Democrats say.
For now, the Obama team
is unveiling few new ideas
specifically keyed to firing
up core constituencies. A
recent White House con-
ference call urged young
voters to hold roundtables,
which administration of-
ficials may attend, to dis-
cuss priorities and offer
feedback.
Beyond that, Obama
eventually plans large ral-
lies similar to those in 2008.
They create showy spec-
tacles that excite young
voters, but they also serve
a fundraising role. People
who enter the stadiums
or buy Obama T-shirts
are asked to provide their
names and contact infor-
mation, which are used
later to request donations
and volunteer activities.
Republicans predict
Obama will easily exceed
the record $750 million he
,raised for the 2008 race,
even without a competi-
tive Democratic primary.
When it comes to en-

ergizing the Democratic
base and turning out the
vote, however, Obama will
sorely miss one person:
George W Bush. His un-
popularity helped cripple
GOP nominee John Mc-
Cain's efforts to overtake
Obama in 2008.
A few days before the
election, Bush's disapprov-
al rating hit a record 70 per-
cent in the Pew Research


Center survey. A declining
number of likely voters,
meanwhile, felt McCain
would take the country in
a different direction.
Whatever problems the
eventual 2012 Republican
nominee may have, Bush
will be a distant memory.
Obama will have to find
a new punching bag, and
new incentives, to fire up
his base.

Petraeus: Afghan war gains enable US troop cuts


The Associated Press

WASHINGTON Amid'
signs of deepening war
weariness among Ameri-
cans, the top U.S. com-
mander in Afghanistan
said Tuesday he will soon
recommend a plan for be-
ginning troop reductions,
while embracing President
Barack Obama's goal of
pursuing a long-term mili-
tary partnership with the
Afghan government.
In a four-hour Senate
hearing that was his first
since taking command in
Kabul last summer, Army
Gen. David Petraeus said
the tide is turning in the
war despite persistent
questions about the dura-
bility of the Afghan govern-
ment led by Hamid Karzai
and the commitment of
neighboring Pakistan to
keep militants at bay.
Several Republicans said
they worry that the Obama
administration is sending

mixed signals about when
the U.S. will leave Afghani-
stan. Several cited a 'new
Washington Post-ABC poll
that said nearly two-thirds
of Americans consider
the war no longer worth
fighting. In his assessment
of the war, Petraeus said
that much of the Taliban's
battlefield momentum
has been halted, putting
the U.S. on course to be-
gin pulling out troops in
July and shifting security
responsibility to the Af-
ghans.
Petraeus cautioned
that security progress is
still "fragile and revers-
ible," with much difficult
work ahead as the Taliban
launch an expected spring
offensive. With tougher
fighting ahead this spring
and summer, it seems like-
ly that the first troops to be
withdrawn in July will be
support forces like cooks
and clerks, not combat
troops.


Petraeus said he has not
yet decided how many
troops he will recommend
that Obama withdraw in
July. The U.S. has about
100,000 troops in Afghani-
stan and its internation-
al partners have about
40,000.
"The momentum
achieved by the Taliban in
Afghanistan since 2005 has
been arrested in much of
the country and reversed
in a number of impor-
tant areas," Petraeus said.
"However, while the secu-
rity progress achieved over
the past year is significant,
it is also fragile and revers-
ible."
Petraeus cited recent
battlefield progress, but
also expressed concern
that Congress was not pro-
viding enough money for
the State Department and
the U.S. Agency for Inter-
national Development to
'ensure that military suc-
cesses are translated into

economic and political
advances. He also cited a
troublesome but still mod-
est effort by Iran to under-
cut U.S. efforts in Afghani-
stan by arming, financing
and training the Taliban.
Several lawmakers who
have traveled to Afghani-
stan in recent months
seconded Petraeus' opti-
mism, citing military prog-
ress in Afghanistan's res-
tive south. Several former
Taliban strongholds there
are now under the control
of Afghan and coalition
forces.

Hornets score three to win


Cottondale rallies to

beat Blountstown
BY DUSTIN KENT
Floridan Sports Editor

The Cottondale Hornets scored, three
runs in the bottom of the eighth inning
to rally past Blountstown 8-7, and pick up
their first district win of the season Mon-
day night at home.
Chris Krauser had a two-RBI single to
provide the winning runs for the Hornets,
who improved to 6-8 overall and 1-5 in
District 2-2A.
If was a back and forth game through-
out, as Cottondale led 3-1 through three
innings before Blountstown rallied with
three runs in the top of the fifth to go on
top.
The Hornets tied the game with a run in


the bottom of the fifth, and did so again
in the bottom of the seventh to force extra
innings.
After Blountstown put two more runs
on the board in the top of the eighth to
go up 7-5, the Hornets once again had the
answer in the bottom of the frame.
"It was just an awesome game," Cotton-
dale coach Greg Ohler said. "There were
a lot of lead changes, and we were able
to produce a run in the seventh to keep it
going, and then the kids dug down to win
it in the eighth. I was proud of the way
the team kept their composure even after
I got upset after a couple of close calls.
They stayed calm and did their jobs."
Krauser finished with two hits and three
RBI, while Austin Baxley had the same for
the Hornets.
Jake Kemoschak also had two hits for
Cottondale, while Trent Jackson had a

Indians win league game
BY DUSTIN KENT I I -. -V ... 1-. ... .- i. I
Floridan Sports Editor *-- '- . '


The Chipola Indians bounced back from a
loss to Gulf Coast in their Panhandle Confer-
ence debut with a 6-3 victory over the Com-
modores on Monday night at Chipola Field.
Chipola lost its league opener on Saturday
in Panama City, giving up a 4-1 lead in a 7-4
defeat.
The Indians erased a late Commodore lead
Monday night, scoring three runs in the bot-
tom of the sixth inning to turn a 3-1 deficit
into a 4-3 advantage.
Chipola added two more runs in the eighth
inning, and made it stand thanks to some
good relief pitching from Travis Higgs and
Robby Colei
The win drew the Indians even in league
play, and kept them in contact with first-
place Gulf Coast, which fell to 4-1.
"You see a lot about a team when adversity
strikes," Chipola coach Jeff Johnson said.
"We didn't play great (on Saturday), and if
we lose again (on Monday), Gulf Coast is 5-0
and way out in front of us. This is a big win. It
shows some of the character of the team. It's
going to take that for us to persevere through
the year."
Early on, it appeared the Indians were
headed for another tough outing. Starter
Matt Marsh allowed four of the first six bat-
ters to reach base, and threw a wild pitch
that brought one run to the plate.
Higgs was brought on in relief and walked
in another run to make it 2-0.
But the Indians picked off Josh Jonas at
third base to end the inning and prevent fur-
ther damage.
Higgs went on to pitch 6 2/3 quality in-
nings, allowing just one earned run on three
hits, three walks and four strikeouts.
"Thank goodness Higgs came in and did
well," Johnson said. "We got a good pitching
performance out of him and Robby Coles.
They both did well for us."
Chipola got a run back in the bottom of the
first on an RBI single by Michael Revell, then
got an RBI single by Derrick Pitts.in the sixth
to cut the deficit to 3-2.

The No. 5 Chipola Lady Indians
racked up three more lopsided
home wins Monday and Tuesday to
stay sharp ahead of Thursday's Pan-
handle Conference opener against
Pensacola State.
On Monday, the Lady Indians (32-
7) swept a doubleheader over San
Jacinto, winning by scores of 8-0 and
6-0. They came back Tuesday to rout
Southeastern College 10-1 in five in-
nings.
In the first game Monday, Chipola
got home runs from Ariell Van Hook
and Andrea Sullivan, and a sharp
pitching performance from Liz
Krauser to take the game in five.
Krauser pitched five shutout in-


nings, allowing two hits, two walks
and striking out one.
Van Hook got the Chipola offense
going in the first inning with a two-
run home run. Sullivan added a solo
shot in the third inning to put the
Lady Indians up 4-0.
Chipola scored three more runs in
the inning on an RBI sacrifice fly by
Devin Matthews, an RBI single by
Selentia Pittman and another RBI
hit by Hannah Lovestrand to make
it 7-0.
Van Hook ended the game in the
fifth on the eight-run mercy rule,
thanks to an RBI double to score Pit-
tman, who walked twice, stole three
bases and scored three runs in the
game.
Sayumi Akamine reached base in
all four at-bats, scoring a run and


driving in a run, while Van Hook was
2 for 4 with a run and three RBI.
In the second game, Brittany Black
started and pitched six scoreless in-
nings to get the win, allowing just
one hit, one walk and striking out
five.
Van Hook homered again, and fin-
ished with two runs and an RBI.
Ashley Ellis was 3 for 4 with two
runs and an RBI, while Rich was 3 for
3 with a run and an RBI.
Black, Akamine and Chelsey Steed-
ley also had run-scoring hits.
Against Southeastern the Lady In-
dians continued to dominate, as Van
Hook provided another huge offen-
sive performance.

Bulldogs fall in high-scoring


game to Coosa Valley, 10-8
BY SHELIA MADER
Floridan Correspondent


After picking up a key
district win Friday night
in Chipley, the Marianna
Bulldogs fell just short of
a miraculous rally Mon-
day night against Coosa
Valley at Bulldog Field.
CoosaValley coach Bob-
by Hughes returned to
Marianna with his team
to take on his alma mater,
and came out on the win-
ning end, 10,8.
Marianna coach Andy
Shelton sent Chris God-
win to the mound for
the Bulldogs, with Clayte
Rooks behind the plate.
Zack Smith was at first,
with Brandon Burch at
second, Dustin O'Hearn
at short andAustin Branch
at third. Alex Bigale took
left field, with Jae Elliott
in center and Jaren Ban-
nerman in right.
The Rebels wasted no
time in taking advantage
of some. key infield mis-
cues, with the first two
batters reaching on er-
rors. A single plated one
run before consecutive
walks plated another. A
sacrifice fly scored the
third run of the inning to
put the Rebels up 2-0.
In the top of the sec-
ond inning,. a walk and a
fielder's choice brought
another run to the plate
for Coosa Valley to make
it 3-0.
With one out and two
runners on base in the
top of the third inning,
Brad Middleton came on
in relief of Godwin. A wild
pitch moved the runners
to scoring position, and
an error, allovwed both to
score before Middleton
retired two on strikes to
get out of the inning with
the Rebels leading 5-0.
Bannerman led of the
bottom of the frame with
a single, with Burch and
Elliott following with a
pair of strikeouts. Branch

on first and second and a

passed ball moved them
into scoring position.
Rooks walked to load the
bases, but a fly ,to right
field by Smith ended the
inning with the bags full.
Middleton got things
going in the bottom of the
fourth with a double, but
a fly ball in foul territory
doubled him up trying to
advance to third on the
play. O'Hearn reached on
a dropped ball in left field,
and then stole second and
third before scoring on a
single by Bannerman. A
strikeout ended the in-
ning, with the Dogs trail-
ing 5-1.
CossaValley plated three
runs in the fifth to go up
8-1 on two walks, two hits
and two costly errors.
The Rebels added a run
to move to 9-1 in the sixth
inning on two hits and an
error.
The Bulldogs rallied in
Sthe sixth inningwith seven


runs to narrow the deficit
to 9-8. Bigale got it going
with a double. Following
a pop up to the catcher,
Bannerman drew a walk.
After a strikeout, Elliott
drew a walk to load the
bases for Branch's three-
RBI double. Rooks singled
and Smith took one for
the team. Middleton sin-
gled home two more runs
before a fly out to left field
ended the inning.
Elliott came on to close
out the final inning, but
the Rebels added an in-
surance run to make it a
10-8 game. Elliott issued
a walk with one out, and
an error allQyed the run
to score.
Three strikeouts pre-
vented Bannerman from
scoring in the bottom of

Eighth-grader
A 1. Charleston Bax-
ter was the top
contributor in
this year's Hoops
For Heart event
at Grand Ridge
Middle School. He
contributed $68.
During the 10-day
event, students
were allowed to try
to sink a basket for
every dollar
SUBMITTED PHOTO contributed.


$890 raised at event


Special to the Floridan

Grand Ridge Middle
School recently held a
10-day basketball tourna-
ment called "Hoops for
Heart" to raise money for
the American Heart Asso-
ciation, which sponsored
the event.
The purpose of the
event was to bring aware-
ness of heart disease and
other heart-related ill-
ness, as well as provide a
learning experience
for the students.
The fundraiser was
done in conjunction
with the Grand Ridge
Students Working
Against Tobacco, or
SWAT chapter, and
was coordinated by
Ken Granger.
The competition
was set up for grades
6 through 8, with stu-
dents able to take a
shot from anywhere
on the court for a $1
dollar donation.


Every student's made
basket counted as a point
for his or her grade, with
number of points award-
ed determined by where
the shot was taken.
At the end of fhe first
day, the seventh grade
had 18 points, the sixth
14, and the eighth three.
But at the end of the last
day, the eighth grade was
in front with 289 points.
Seventh grade came in
second with 278, and the


sixth in third with 169.
The eighth graders were
awarded with a party to
celebrate their victory.
The tournament raised
a total of $890, twice what
was raised in last year's
event.
"The support was great
considering it was the
first year that we have
done it this way," Granger
said. "We have higher ex-
pectations here at Grand
Ridge."

Annie's Mailbox


Dear Annie: I am the second wife of the
nicest, most wonderful man I have ever
known. "John" and I have been in a happy
marriage for seven years.
John is friends with "Ruth," a 36-year-
old mother of two, and her husband.
The problem is their out-of-control 16-
year-old daughter, "Bethany." The girl
is jealous, manipulative and vindictive.
She tells tales, has wrecked her share
of vehicles and has an excuse for every
problem she causes. This would be none
of my business, except one of my friends
is the mother of Bethany's. on-again, off-
again best friend. The mothers of these
girls don't like each other and have had a
number of verbal confrontations. Recent-
ly, Ruth demanding I end my relation-
ship with my friend. Supposedly, I made
comments that hurt Bethany's feelings,
though Ruth admitted this may be false.
The only thing I am guilty of is resent-
ing this child. Bethany will most certainly
make more trouble in the future. Is there
anything I can do? AURORA'

Dear Aurora: You need to stay out of this


-entirely. While Ruth should not be dictat-
ing the terms, of your other friendships,
you should not be talking about Bethany
with anyone. Your resentment is coming
through loud and clear and both Ruth and
Bethany can pick up on it. If necessary,
apologize to Ruth for any misunderstand-
ing, but otherwise, drop the subject.

Dear Annie: During most of the 20 years
that my first wife and I were married, I
didn't realize how important it was to
demonstrate how much I appreciated
her. When she suddenly passed away six
years ago, I thought of all the times that I
had not expressed my love and apprecia-
tion. Two years later, I met a widow on-
line. From the beginning, we started and
ended our meetings with a hug. We also
held hands and kissed or hugged for no
reason other than to express our love.
We've heard others indicate that they
don't need to tell their spouses they are
loved "because.they already know." If they
continued to "court" their partner as long
as they live, there would be a lot more
happy couples. -WIDOWED AGAIN


Bridge


Michel de Montaigne, a French essayist who
died in 1592, said, "I prefer the company of
peasants because they have not been educated
sufficiently to reason incorrectly."
He would have also liked'bridge experts be-
cause they must reason correctly. You are in
three no-trump. West leads the heart queen.
After you cover with dummy's king, there is
bad news East wins with the ace and good
news the defenders take only four heart
tricks. How would you try to take the last nine
tricks?
North started with a transfer bid, showing
five-plus spades and zero-plus points, then re-
bid two no-trump to invite game with exactly
five spades. You have only six top tricks: one
spade, four diamonds and one club. The oth-
er three tricks cannot come from spades, but
might come from clubs. You must realize that if
the club finesse is losing, you have no chance.
So assume East has the club king. Then, on the
fourth round of hearts, you must bravely dis,-
card your spade queen.
Yes, this risks going several down if they shift
to a spade and the club finesse fails, but if you
retain the spade queen, you will need both
black-suit finesses to work, not just one.

Heat not swept up by latest fortunes


The Associated Press

MIAMI When the Miami
Heat were teetering on the brink
of their season slipping away a
week ago, coach Erik Spoelstra
implored his team to ignore the
noise.
Three wins later, the same rule
applies.
Even a 30-point romp over
NBA-leading San Antonio the
Spurs' worst regular-season loss
since April 2005 was not worth
a Heat celebration. Not now, any-
way, with Oklahoma City com-
ing into Miami on Wednesday
and two more games by week's
end against likely playoff teams
Atlanta and Denver.
"It's been an ebb and flow kind
of year for us," Heat guard Dwy-
ane Wade said. "But I think, at
this time of the year, it's good that
we get to look at times where we
played well and times where we
haven't.
"And now going into the
stretch, knowing what works ...
we've got to keep it up and keep
that energy and effort up, first
and foremost."
The Heat had lost five straight
and were in a nip-and-tuck game
with the Los Angeles Lakers last
Thursday, one where the out-
come was very much undecided
with 90 seconds remaining.
For whatever reason, every-
thing seemed to change in one
moment.
Starting with a 6-0 run to close
that win over the two-time de-
fending NBA champions, the
Heat have outscored opponents
234-165 in the last 97 minutes.
This marks just the second time
Miami has won consecutive
games by30 or more in franchise
history, the other in 1996. And
while they hardly worked alone
Monday, the Heat "Big 3" of
Wade, LeBron James and Chris
Bosh scored 80 points, matching
the Spurs' total output.
All of this was met with a re-

sounding shrug by Spoelstra,
who has been saying for weeks
that the big picture is what mat-
ters most.
"I'm sure some people now
will start to jump slowly on the
bandwagon," Spoelstra said. "It's
not about any of this. We've got
to quiet everybody and quiet the
noise out and continue to work
together to get better."
While that's surely true, there
are some significant signs for the
Heat to be encouraged about.
Bosh went public in his frus-
tration with his play three games
ago, vowing he would be more
assertive and demanding in the
post and revert closer to the way
he played.when he was the No.
1 option for the Toronto Raptors.
Since then, he's averaging 24.0
points and 10.3 rebounds on 61
percent shooting.
"It's been a lot of ups and
downs for us," Bosh said. "But
it's all a part of what we have to
go through to get to where we
want to go. Before, it was tough
- it was very tough to lose
close games, make small simple
mistakes that would cost us the
game, and that has helped us
pay attention to detail."
He wasn't the only big man
who had an impact Spurs.
At first glance, Jamaal Ma-
gloire's line of four points and
seven rebounds seems ordinary.
Magloire, who's only getting
minutes right now because Zy-
drunas Ilgauskasis sidelinedwith
an infected foot, simply changed
the game Monday night, setting
screens, muscling San Antonio's
front line on both ends, scrap-
ping for rebounds. His 20 min-
utes were the most he's logged
in exactly one year; he played 23
minutes against Philadelphia on
March 14, 2010.
In the last two games, Magloire
has scored eight points. He'd
scored a total of nine in Miami's
first 65 games, most of which he
spent in a suit.

Japan races to contain nuclear threat


The Associated Press

SOMA, Japan Dan-
gerous levels of radiation
leaking from a crippled
nuclear plant forced Japan
to order 140,000 people to
seal themselves indoors
Tuesday after an explosion
and a fire dramatically es-
calated the crisis spawned
by a deadly tsunami.
In a nationally televised
statement, Prime Minister
Naoto Kan said radiation
had spread from the four
stricken reactors of the Fu-
kushima Daiichi nuclear
plant along Japan's north-
eastern coast. The region
was shattered by Friday's
9.0-magnitude earthquake
and the ensuing tsunami
that is believed to have
killed more than 10,000
people, plunged millions
into misery and pummeled
the world's third-largest
economy.
Japanese officials told
the International Atomic
Energy Agency that the
reactor fire was in a fuel


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Tsunami survivors cook and eat in front of their damaged house Tuesday, in Ishinomaki in
Miyagi Prefecture (state) after the area was badly damaged by Friday's massive earthquake
and tsunami.


storage pond an area
where used nuclear fuel
is kept cool and that'
"radioactivity is being re-
leased directly into' the


atmosphere." Long after
the fire was extinguished,
a Japanese official said the
pool might still be boiling,
though the reported levels


of radiation had dropped
dramatically by the end of
the day.
Late Tuesday, officials at
the plant said they were


considering asking for help
from the U.S. and Japanese
militaries to spray water
from helicopters into the
pool.
That reactor, Unit 4, had
been shut down before the
quake for maintenance.
If the water boils, it could
evaporate, exposing the
rods. The fuel rods are en-
cased in safety containers
meant to prevent them
from resuming nuclear
reactions, nuclear officials
said. But they acknowl-
edged that there could
have been damage to the
containers. They also con-
firmed that the walls of the
storage pool building were
damaged.
Experts noted that much
of the leaking radiation
was apparently in steam
from boiling water. It had
not been emitted directly
by fuel rods, which would
be far more virulent, they
said.
"It's not good, but I don't
think it's a disaster," said
Steve Crossley, an Austra-


lia-based radiation physi-
cist.
Even the highest de-
tected rates were not au-
tomatically harmful for
brief periods, he said. "If
you were to spend a sig-
nificant amount of time
- in the order of hours -
that could be significant,"
Crossley said.
Less clear were the re-
sults of the blast in Unit 2,
near a. suppression pool,
which removes heat under
a reactor vessel, said plant
owner Tokyo Electric Pow-
er Co.
The nuclear core was
not damaged but the bot-
tom of the surrounding
container may have been,
said Shigekazu Omukai,
a spokesman for Japan's
nuclear safety agency.
Though Kan and other
officials urged calm, Tues-
day's developments fueled
a growing panic in Japan
and. around the world
amid widespread uncer-
tainty over what would
happen next.


Air and ground: Gadhafi, rebels each claim control


The Associated Press


TOBRUK, Libya Moammar
Gadhafi's warplanes, artillery
and mortar shells can control
huge swaths of territory by day,
including oil ports, rebel supply
routes and even hostile towns.
Rebels say anti-government
forces can still return in darkness
to take advantage of Gadhafi's
own thin supply lines and over-
stretched ground troops.
SThe eastern port city of Brega
has gone back and forth with the
setting of the sun in recent days
and is key to the battle for Libya's
oil centers so key that both
sides claimed control of it near-
ly simultaneously on Monday.
The regime offensive appears to


be hampered by a lack of man-
power: They can drive out rebels
with barrages, but not necessar-
ily hold the territory.
Rebels, on the other hand,
didn't dare come out in the open
on Monday in Brega, with a
spokesman saying they were tak-
ing cover instead in the indus-
trial oil area where they believed
Gadhafi forces wouldn't fire.
Brega and the city of Ajdabiya
about 35 miles (70 kilometers)
away again came under govern-
ment bombardment on Monday,
freshly exposing their impor-
tance as key crossroads for rebel
supply lines, a main weakness in

British Prime Minister David
Cameron said NATO was draw-
ing up contingency plans for a
rio-fly zone.
"Every day Gadhafi is brutal-
izing his own people. Time is of
the essence," Cameron told the
parliament in London. "There
should be no let up in the pres-
sure we put on this regime."
Meanwhile, fighting raged in
Brega,,said Abdul-Bari Zwei, a
rebel spokesman. He said the
rebels controlled the neighbor-
hoods, but Gadhafi forces were
pounding them with bombs
from the air, land and sea. He
said ,the rebels were hiding in
parts of the'industrial oil area,
believing Gadhafi forces would
hold fire there.
