Victims in weekend crash named


From staff reports
The Florida Highway Patrol released the
name of the youngster ejected and killed
in a traffic accident on Interstate 10 near
Sneads last Saturday afternoon.
Jeremy Brown, 11, of Cypress, Texas was
a passenger in a GMC Yukon SUV driven
by 15-year-old Joshua Brown. Jeremy
Brown was taken to Jackson Hospital fol-
lowing the crash, and was pronounced
dead at the hospital.
According to the highway patrol, Joshua
Brown was westbound in the left lane
when the SUV he was driving drifted onto
the grass shoulder of the median around
1:45 p.m. When he steered back to the


right, he overcorrected and this caused
him to lose control of the vehicle. It over-
turned several times, ejecting Jeremy
Brown and two other occupants of the
SUV. Joshua Brown, also of Cypress, Tex-
as, was the only restrained individual in
the vehicle. He received serious injuries
and was taken to Tallahassee Memorial
Hospital for treatment. "
The other two occupants were identi-
fied as Michael and Pamela Brown, both
45 years of age and residents of Cypress,
Texas. They received critical injuries in
the crash and also were taken to Tallahas-
see Memorial Hospital.
The crash is still under investigation
and no charges have been filed to date.


MARK SKINNER/FLORIDAN
Traffic was brought to a stop in the westbound lanes of Interstate 10 Saturday after a single
vehicle accident that injured three people and,killed one.


YOU'VE GOT MAIL ... MAYBE



Post offices may be closed


MARK SKINNER/FLORIDAN
The U.S. Postal Service may close the Campbellton, above, and Bascom post offices. The two communities are protesting the move.


Cambellton, Bascom in the crosshairs


BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
Floridan StaffWriter

The Campbellton and Bascom post
offices may be shut down by the U.S.
Postal Service, and the Jackson County
Commission will be asked to sign reso-
lutions today protesting the closures.
Commissioner Willie Spires called for
the Campbellton item to be placed on
the agenda, and Commissioner Kenny
Stephens said Monday he planned to
add a similar item for Bascom.
The resolution for Campbellton has
already been prepared for the commis-
sion to consider, and several members
of that community are already lining
up to fightthe possible closure.
The U.S. Postal Service has scheduled
a community meeting in Campbellton
to talk about post office issues. It is set
for March 28, from 6 to 8 p.m. It will be
held at the Campbellton Community
Center, located at 2336 State Road 2,
near the intersection of SR 2 and U.S.
Highway 231.
Bascom's meeting with the postal
service is set for March 29 at 6 p.m., at
city hall.
Spires learned of the potential clo-
sure from Campbellton Town Clerk
Brenda Griffin.
"The town says there is a move afoot
to close the post office, and wanted
to know if I would attend the meet-
ing about the adverse effects it would
have," Spires said. "I thought it would
be more advantageous for the board as
a body to send a letter expressing that
we oppose it. We have a lot of elderly
citizens in the Campbellton area that


make use of having immediate access
to the post office, and I certainly want
them to continue having that conve-
nience."
Griffin and other community mem-
bers are involved in the effort to pre-
vent the post office's closure.
She said the post office is used by
many tourists on their way to and from
the beaches. They often stop in there to
send their postcards before they leave
Florida to cross the Alabama line, she
said.
Griffin said that, although the postal
service is prevented from terminat-
ing a service because it isn't "making
enough money," she and others feel
the possible closure is an economic
decision.
She thinks that they would be mak-'
ing a mistake to close it, no matter
,what the reason. She said postal offi-
cials conducted a survey of the Camp-
bellton post office at one of its lowest-
traffic times a few days ago, before the
onset of spring and summer vacation
season, and therefore did not get an
accurate reading on traffic in and out
of the office.
Furthermore, she said most Camp-
bellton residents live in low-income
households and would suffer eco-
nomic hardship if their post office is
closed. They would have to drive to
Graceville to get their mail every day,
and the round trip would be more than
25 miles each time they drive it. Pay-
ing for a gallon of gas to get the mail,
she said, can add up quickly for people
on tight budgets. Griffin also noted the
difficulty a closure could pose for the


elderly, who may not be able to safely
drive the distance to Graceville.
A postal representative said a more
likely scenario might be for the service
to offer mail boxes at the residences in
town.
The closure of the post office would
also have an effect on rural route cus-
tomers, Griffin said. She predicts that
all those addresses would have to be
changed to become part of the Gracev-
ille route. A representative of the postal
service said that isn't a certainty.
According to Griffin, the Campbellton
Post Office is also important to many
people who live near Dothan, Ala. To
avoid standing in long lines to ship off
their Christmas packages, many Do-
than residents come to Campbellton,
instead, she said.
Griffin said she also fears that with-
out a post office, Campbelltoni might
not get the communications taxes it
now receives annually. The money
goes into the city's general fund to help
with its operations.
Griffin acknowledged that federal of-
ficials have said that won't happen, but
she doesn't believe it. She points to the
fact that the town of Jacob doesn't re-
ceive any communications taxes, an(
she thinks that's because it doesn't have
a post office and its rural postal routes
are listed as Cottondale addresses.
A postal service representative said
the postal service stands ready to help
the city and state "drill down" into data
to get the information needed to keep
the tax revenue coming to the city,
rather than relying on the currently as-
signed Zip codes to assign the tax rev-
enue.

Marianna


house a total


loss after fire
From staff reports
A brick home was destroyed by fire
Monday afternoon in Marianna.
The occupant of the house at 2808
SBarnes St. was home at the time and
called the fire in just before 1 p.m., ac-
.cording to Marianna Fire Chief Byr6n
Benneft.
The dwelling is expected to be de-
clared a total loss, with an estimated 95
percent of the interior damaged. The
heaviest burn damage was to the living
room, kitchen and hallway.
:The cause and origin of the fire are be-
Sing investigated, but there is no suspi-
Scion of foul play, Bennett said.
. Jackson County Fire Rescue assisted
in fighting the fire, Bennett said, The de-
partments used an estimated 6,000 gal-
loons of water to extinguish the blaze.
"., Wprotect the structures on either
side of the burning house one 25 feet
away and another 75 feet away the
crews pulled extra fire houses alongside
the neighboring homes as a precaution.
Neither home was damaged.

Florida court system facing $72.3 million deficit


The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE Florida's
court system has frozen hiring
and is bracing for possible staff
furloughs due to a $72.3 million
deficit blamed on a shortfall in
filing fees after mortgage fore-
closure cases dramatically de-
clined.
Supreme Court Chief Justice
Charles Canady last week wrote
letters released Monday to Gov.
Rick Scott and legislative budget
leaders asking for a $21.7 million
supplemental appropriation and
$42.5 million in budget transfers
to make sure vital functions con-
tinue through June 30, when the,
fiscal year ends.
"To meet the current funding
crisis, the judicial branch has


already implemented an emer-
gency branch-wide hiring freeze
and an emergency operating
budget freeze," Canady wrote in
a letter.
If those steps aren't approved,
furloughing court personnel
would be next.
"Such furloughs would cause
severe disruption in the func-
tioning of the courts," Canady
warned.
Canady stressed that the defi-
cit is due to a shortfall in antici-
pated court filing fees, "not from
overspending by the judicial
branch."
He noted the Legislature in
2009 increased the fees and fun-
neled them into a trust fund to
pay for most of the system's ex-
penses. The trust fund was ex-


pected to cover $370 million of
the $462 million court system
budget.
Most of the fees $293.7 mil-
lion were expected to come
from foreclosure filings, but
they've dropped well below that
estimate due to self-imposed
moratoriums by many lenders
over such issues as lost paper-
work and erroneous filings.
Some lenders ran into prob-
lems because employees dubbed
"robo signers" cleared foreclo-
sure documents for filing with-
out reviewing them or even see-
ing them in some cases.
State economists, though, are
predicting the trust fund will re-
bound by nearly $200 million in
the next budget year.
"Given the volatility of the fore-


"To meet the currentfunding crisis, the
judicial branch has already implemented an

closure crisis in this state, I have
some reservations about the pro-
jection," Canady wrote. "But if it
is accurate, this immediate trust
fund shortfall is a short term
cash flow problem that should
resolve itself next fiscal year."
However, he asked lawmak-
ers to reduce the court system's
heavy reliance on foreclosure fil-
ing fees in the future.
"Ensuring our citizens access


to the courts requires stability
and predictability in the funding
supporting court operations,"
Canady wrote.
As for the current budget year,
Canady's proposal includes the
temporary transfer into the State
Courts Trust Fund of $12 million
from mediation arbitration, $2
million from court education
and $28.5 million from other
funds.


Smith stepping down as Fla. education commissioner


The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE Flor-
ida education commis-
sioner Eric Smith is leaving
that post in June, saying
he wants to give new Gov.
Rick Scott a say in a suc-
cessor who will pursue his
goals.
But the chairman of the
State Board of Education,
T. Willard Fair of Miami,
said Monday he wants
Smith to change his mind.
"There is nothing that
anybody can tell me that
would make me accept his
resignation," Fair told The
Associated Press. "There is
too much at stake for me
to be that selfish."
In a release from his of-
fice earlier Monday, Smith
said he told members of
the board about his plans


to resign effective June 10,
which is the final day of
the current school year.
The board, the members
of which are appointed by
the governor, makes the
hiring and firing decisions
on the education commis-
sioner.
"Commissioner Smith
had to do what he thought
was best, and he is very
respectful of Gov. Scott
and the new governor's
desire to have his leaders
in place," said board mem-
ber Mark Kaplan, adding
that he hadn't seen any
rift between the governor
and Smith on education
issues.
."I think they are both
very forward-looking," Ka-
plan said.
Smith served during a tu-
multuous time in Florida


education, with budgets
already being cut when he
took over in October 2007
and lawmakers challeng-
ing teacher tenure while
promoting merit pay and
relaxing classroom size
standards.
The state's education
commissioner heads the
Department of Education,
which oversees the state's
public schools, pre-kinder-
garten through 12th grade,
and community and state
colleges.
"The future is promising
and very exciting for our
students," said Smith, who
informed the Scott admin-
istration of his decision on
Friday. Smith, who earned
$275,000 annually as com-
missioner, did not reveal
his future plans.
"We've never had a better


reputation as a leader in
education," said Fair, who
was named to the board by
former Gov. Jeb Bush.
Like Kaplan, Fair said he
was not aware of any is-
sues between Smith and
Scott.
But Scott didn't sound
like he was troubled, or
surprised, by Smith's deci-
sion. In a terse one-para-
graph statement Monday,
the governor thanked the
departing commissioner
;for his service.
: Smith, who will turn 61
on Wednesday, was named
to head Florida's educa-
tion system during the first
year of former Gov. Charlie
Crist's administration.
He was previously a se-
nior vice president with
the New York-based Col-
lege Board, which admin-


sisters the SAT nationwide;
a superintendent in An-
napolis, Md., and Char-
lotte, N.C.; and a principal
in Winter Park.
Former Washington,
D.C., public schools chan-
cellor Michelle Rhee, who
served as an unpaid advis-
er to Scott during his tran-
sition, said she is not inter-
ested in replacing Smith.
"Clearly that's not in the
cards," Rhee told The As-
sociated Press, noting her
recent startup of a national
educational reform group
she's named "Students
First."
She does, however, plan,
to continue to work with
Florida's new. Republican
governor.
"We're really focused
right now on working with
the governor around these


legislative efforts," she
said.
After electing its educa-
tion commissioners for
decades, Florida switched
to an appointed commis-
sioner in 2003, when a
constitutionalamendment
reshuffled the Cabinet.,


Sansom attorney: No evidence crie was committed


The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE A
lawyer for former House
Speaker Ray Sansom told
jurors there's no evidence
that his client could have
stolen $6 million, while the
prosecutor continued to
say Sansom's actions were
a rip-off and a cover-up.
Openings statements.be-
gan Monday in Sansom's
corruption trial. Sansom is
charged with arranging to
wrongfully get a $6 million
budget appropriation to
build a hangar at the Des-
tin airport at co-defendant
Jay Odom's request. The
hangar reportedly was for
Odom's business use.
Attorney Stephen Dob-
son said in his opening that
the money was listed in
the 2007 state budget, and
lawmakers had 72 hours in
which to review the line-
item before they voted on
it. The money was eventu-
ally approved; and Dobson
said no one can "steal an
appropriation made, by the
Florida Legislature."
Dobson and lawyer
James Judkins, represent-,
ing Odom, have said the
money was for a new hur-
ricane-proof emergency
operations center for the
city of Destin. In his open-
ing, Dobson also referred
to it as a "joint-use work-
force building."
Sansom, 48, and Odom,
54, are on trial on charges
of grand theft and conspir-
acy to commit grand theft.
The trial is expected to last
two weeks.
Dobson said Sansom,
as a Florida Panhandle
native, knew the effect of
Hurricane Opal on his area
in 1995. He was later af-
fected by the state's being
hit by several hurricanes in
succession over 2004-05.
"I think the evidence is
uncohtroverted that this
was going to .be an emer-
gency operations center,"
Dobson said. "He did what
a legislator is supposed to
do: Fund good meaning-
ful projects for his com-
munity."
State Attorney Willie
Meggs charged the two
men with a scheme to
have Northwest Florida
State College build the
structure, include some
classrooms to call it an
_J"educational facility" for
w. ';* i, 4. r' '


state funding purposes,
and then lease most of the
building's cavernous "stag-
ing area" to Odom's private
jet business.
The college's former
president, Bob Richburg,
had been a defendant, but'
now is expected to tes-
tify against Sansom and
Odom. Because Sansom
chaired the House Ap-
propriations Committee,
and was in line to become
*House speaker, he was
able to bypass the normal
screening procedures and
secure the appropriation
in the 2007 state budget,
according to Meggs.


Sansom, a Destin Repub-
lican, then took a six-fig-
ure position at the college
on the day he was sworn
in as speaker in 2008., He
later stepped down. from
the speakership as fellow
Republicans were getting
ready to oust him. He is no
longer in office.
Dobson said Gary Yanc-
ey, the college's vice presi-
dent, always wanted to be
able to store planes in the
unused staging area, and
charge tent to make mon-
ey. Only the college's.trust-
ees could have authorized
such a lease, he added.

said.

Health law at one year: Future still in question


The Associated Press

WASHINGTON One
year after President Barack
Obama signed his historic
health care overhaul, the
law is taking root in the
land. Whether it bears last-
ing fruit is still in question.
The legislation estab-
lished health insurance as
a right and a responsibil-
ity. Thousands of families,
businesses and seniors
have benefited from its
early provisions.
But worries about af-
fordability and complex-
ity point to problems
ahead. And that's assum:
ing it withstands a make-
or-break challenge to its

Dr 4W. Av ,irl '


constitutionality that the
Supreme Court is expected
to decide.
Public divisions over the
law are still so sharp that
Americans can't even agree
what to call it. Supporters
call it the Affordable Care
Act, a shorter form of its
'unwieldy official title. It's
also known as "Obam-
acare," the epithet used
by Republicans seeking its
demise.
While Obama returns
from Latin America on
the signing anniversary
Wednesday, administra-
tion officials will fan out
across the country. Com-
munity commemorations
started Monday, under-
'Pvi, '-.I11


scoring that the health
care battle has moved to
the states. Even states su-
ing to nullify the law's
requirement that most
Americans carry health
insurance are proceeding
with at least some of the
building blocks.
Polls show that about
one in eight people believe
they have been personally
helped already, well before
the provision kicks in in
2014 to cover millions of
uninsured. Interviews with
people affected reveal it's
not always clear-cut.
In small-town Circleville,
N.Y, Patti Schley says one
of the dozens of new insur-
ance regulations made a

Andrew, right, and Emily, front, at their home in Overland Park, Kansas. Mary Thompson was
sure the health care law would finally let them get Emily on the family's health insurance. But

work out as expected.


dramatic difference for her
family.
Her daughter Megan, 23,.
was out of college, going
without insurance as she
tried to launch a wedding
photography business.
Last summer Megan start-
ed getting sick and rapidly
lost weight. Doctors diag-
nosed a serious digestive
system disorder that would
make her uninsurable.
But her parents were
able to get her into a high-
risk insurance pool cre-
ated under the law, and
this year Megan signed up
for her father's workplace
plan, under a provision ex-
tending coverage for adult
children up to age 26.
"As a mother of a sick
child, you are concerned
whether your kid is 4 or 24,"
said Schley, an office ad-
ministrator. "We couldn't
wait for this to kick in."
Things are working out
for the Schleys, but the
high-risk pools that pro-
vided the initial lifeline for
Megan are faltering. Na-,
tionally, the latest count
shows fewer than 12,500
people signed up, mainly
because of waiting periods
and high premiums.
Another mom with an
uninsured daughter ran
into a Catch-22 that illus-
trates the law's complexity.
MaryThompson of Over-
land Park, Kan., was sure
the law would finally get
11-year-old Emily on the
family's health insurance.
Insurers had repeatedly
rejected Emily due to a
birth defect of the spine,
surgically corrected when
she was an infant. The law
requires insurers to accept
children regardless of pre-
existing health problems,
a safeguard that will ex-
tend to people of all ages
in 2014.
But because Emily's fa-
ther is self-employed and
the family buys its own
coverage, things didn't
work out as expected.
Certain "grandfathered"


plans selling individual
coverage are exempt from
the law's requirement to
cover kids. The Thomp-
sons' plan was one. That
meant they would have
to apply for a whole new
policy, and the mother, a
breast cancer survivor, was
unlikely to be accepted.
"We would have had to
start over with me and
I can't start over," said
Thompson. A social work-
er helped get Emily into
Medicaid.
In neighboring Missouri,
an insurance company's
campaign to get small
businesses to sign up by
taking advantage of new
tax breaks has yielded
mixed results.
One of the chief pro-
moters of the idea is Ron
Rowe, an executive of Blue
Cross and Blue Shield of
Kansas City. With some
150 previously uninsured
businesses offering new
coverage, his company's
efforts earned the praise of
Obama administration of-
ficials. But Rowe says many
business owners found the
math didn't work for them.
"The longer this has been
out in the marketplace, the
less appealing it's been to
small-business owners,"
he said. A typical employ-
ee with 10 workers would
have to pay about $31,000
a year for health insurance
and recover only 10 per-
cent to 15 percent of that
through the new tax credit.
Rowe says his company is
getting more interest from
business owners by offer-
ing a cap on rate increas-
es.
No group is more sensi-
tive to medical costs than
senior citizens, whose
votes are also critical to
Democrats' chances in
the 2012 presidential elec-
tion. So far, alarms that
Medicare cuts would com-
promise their care have
not been borne out. But
Democratic lawmakers
engineered the cuts to take


effect gradually, while new
Medicare benefits are be-.
ing provided now.
Topping the list this year
is a 50 percent price cut on
brand-name prescriptions
for Medicare recipients
who fall into the coverage
gap called the "doughnut
hole." Daniel Wisniewski,
a retired truck driver from
Staten Island, N.Y., reckons
that will reduce the price of
one of his heart drugs from
$234.99 a month to around
$117.
"I'm not much on poli-
tics, but I feel that that's
got to help me," said Wis-
niewski, 69. "I worked and
paid into Social Security
for 55 years. When I was a
kid I used to wash dishes in
a bakery after school."
Republicans say such
gains will be temporary.
For families, "any margin-
al benefits from this law
are far outweighed by the
heavy-handed interven-
tion in their health care by
Washington bureaucrats,"
said Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-
Utah.
Affordability is the main
worry for critics. A recent
poll by the nonpartisan
Kaiser Family Founda-
tion found that one in five
Americans said they had
been negatively affected
by the law, and about half
of those cited costs. Some
blamed the law for this
year's premium hikes, al-
though many experts say
the impact was marginal.
"If they have a bad expe-
rience in the marketplace,
it's very possible they're
going to attribute that to
the law," said Mollyann
Brodie, Kaiser polling di-
rector. "It certainly pres-
ents a challenge for the
proponents."
A lead author, of the bill,
Democratic Sen. Max Bau-
cus of Montana, remains
a strong supporter but la-
ments not devoting more
attention up front to cost
control. "It gave detractors
an opening," he said.

Spring storm dumps snow


in mountains, rain in LA


The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES Spring roared into
Southern California, bringing a storm
more severe than the region saw for most
of the winter. Snow, ice and rockslides
forced the shutdown of major highways
and thousands were without electricity,
while concerns about flooding and mud-
slides forced dozens of evacuations..
Interstate 5 north of Los Angeles was
shut down as wintry conditions through
the mountains made passes too dan-
gerous, said CHP spokeswoman Krystal
Carter. The closure temporarily left driv-
ers without the main route from Los An-
geles to northern and central California.
The Grapevine, the main mountain pass
between Los Angeles and Central Califor-
nia, remained closed Monday morning
because of icy conditions but reopened
later in the morning after the ice melted.
CHP officers were busy removing cars
and trucks that had crashed and were
stuck on the road overnight, she said.
Some drivers spent the night in their
cars while others packed local motels.
About 2/2 inches of rain fell in down-
town Los Angeles on Sunday and early
Monday, with 5 to 7 inches recorded in
the San Fernando Valley. Rock slides in
Malibu also closed parts of the Pacific
Coast Highway near Topanga Canyon
Road, authorities said.
Sunday's storm was unusually strong
for late March,. said Stuart Seto of the
weather service.
"Usually later in the year they kind of ta-
per off." he said. "Old Man Winter, I guess,
wanted to take one more bite out of us
before leaving."


By early Monday, the nasty weather
was moving out of the region and flood
advisories were canceled for Los Angeles
County, but the weather service warned
that debris flows and flash flooding in
some areas were still possible.
The storm hit first and hardest in San-
ta Barbara County, where more than 10
inches of rain fell in the Lake Cachuma
area, forcing the release of water from
Bradbury Dam, county spokesman David
Flamm said.
The release was helping the lake level,
off, but heavy flow in the Santa Maria Riv-
er brought the precautionary evacuation
of 24 people in Guadalupe, Flamm said.
They all returned home early Monday.
Ventura firefighters moved out 51 peo-
ple from homeless encampments along
the rising Ventura River, fire officials told
KCAL-TV Rain on a flooded street in Ox-
nard stranded several cars and 'swept
away another, the National Weather Ser-
vice said.
Strong wind blew over trees that dam-
aged homes and broke windows in
the valley, downtown Los Angeles and
throughout the region. The rains, winds
and downed trees combined to cripple
power lines, cutting electricity to about
90,000 customers; officials with the utili-
ties said. It wasn't immediately clear when
power would be restored.
Thousands of runners in the Los An-
geles Marathon faced pouring rain and
lightning strikes, one of which illuminat-
ed the downtown skyline just as the race
started. It didn't seem to bother them, as
Markos Geneti'finished first among men

GI retirement benefit lacking


The Associated Press

WASHINGTON A law
meant to provide early
retirement as a reward
for National Guard and
Reserve members who
were deployed to Iraq and
Afghanistan is instead
leaving many of them per-
plexed and frustrated.
When Congress wrote
the law three years ago, it
said Guard and Reserve
members called up for 90
days or more for war ser-
vice or other federal duty
wouldbe credited forwork
"in any fiscal year" toward
early retirement for each
day they were mobilized.
Earning the credit would
allow them to retire before
age 60 if they had 20 years
of service.
But the Pentagon has
interpreted that to mean
a 90-day period of ser-
vice had to be completely
served within a single fis-
cal year. The federal fis-
cal year goes from Oct. 1
to Sept. 30. So if a Guard
member were to be de-
ployed for three months
beginning in September,
the time wouldn't count
because the 90 days would
be split between two fiscal
years.
The situation has added
insult to injury for troops
already upset that Con-
gress only included Guard
and Reserve members
deployed after the law
was signed in early 2008,
leaving out the 600,000
troops mobilized between
the Sept. 11, 2001, terror-
ist attacks and the time
the law was enacted. The
combined issues could
mean retirement will be
delayed months for many
Guard.and Reserve mem-
bers.
To fix the glitches would
cost an estimated $2 bil-
lion, money that would
be hard to find.
"It's more than a mess,"
said retired Navy Capt.
Ike Puzon, director of
government affairs at the


Association of the United
States Navy in Alexandria,
Va.
About 800,000 Guard
and Reserve troops have
mobilized for the wars
in Iraq and Afghanistan.
More than 1,100 have
died. Others have come
home from war to find
little work available.
Navy Senior Chief Petty
Officer David E. Clauss,
46, an electronics techni-
cian, is one such mem-
ber looking for a job. The
reservist was mobilized
to do security in Groton,
Conn., for almost two
years after 9/11. He later
did military customs and
then earned a Bronze Star
for work in Afghanistan in
2008-2009 helping to train
the Afghan military. About
five months of his work in
Afghanistan likely doesn't
count toward early retire-
ment, nor does the almost
four years of mobilization
before 2008.
"I think it is sort of im-
portant for the govern-
ment to help out the folks
who have done multiple
deployments," said Clauss,


of East Providence, R.I.
Some in Congress
pushed to give members
of the Guard and Reserve
one year of early retire-
ment for every two years
of war service.
What passed the Senate
in 2007 was a provision
that allowed those called
up after Sept. 11 to have
one day of early retire-
ment for every day they
were mobilized. But when
House and Senate nego-
tiators met to hammer out
annual defense spending,
it was determined there
wasn't enough money to
retroactively give the ben-
'efit to those who served
before 2008.
"It seems unfair," said
Air Force Maj. Sharon
Dondlinger, 36, of Manas-
sas Park, Va., a reservist
who did more than a year
of security duty in Atlanta
following 9/11 and then
deployed to Iraq in 2005.
"It doesn't seem fair that
an arbitrary date of when
the legislation was passed
should make someone's
time mobilized more valu-
able than mine."

team performed.

Boston hospital performs full face transplant


The Associated Press

BOSTON A Texas con-
struction worker badly
disfigured in a power line
accident two years ago has
received the nation's first
full face transplant at a
Boston hospital.
More than 30 doctors,
nurses and other staff at
Brigham and Women's
Hospital, led by plastic sur-
geon Dr. Bohdan Pomahac,
performed the 15-hour
operation last week on 25-
year-old Dallas Wiens of
Fort Worth, Texas. He was
listed in good condition at
the hospital on Monday.
The electrical accident in
November 2008 left Wiens
blind and without lips, a
nose or eyebrows. In Bos-
ton, doctors transplanted
an entire new face, includ-
ing a nose, lips, skin and
muscles and nerves that
animate the skin and give
sensation. The donor's
identity was not disclosed
nor would the hospital say
exactly when the surgery
was done for privacy rea-
sons.
Wiens will not resemble
"either what he used to be
or the donor," but some-
thing in between, said
Pomahac. "The tissues are
really molded on a new
person."
The transplant was not
able to restore Wiens' sight,
land some nerves were so


badly damaged from his
injury that he likely will
have only partial sensa-
tion on his left cheek and
left forehead, the surgeon
said.
Wiens has been able to
talk to his family on the
phone, said his grandfa-
ther, Del Peterson, who
attended the news confer-
ence in Boston.
"When I first saw him af-
ter the injury, I had no idea
what was to follow," Peter-
son said. "But he is deter-
mined to get well, and to
move on with his life, to do
something with his life."
He said Wiens hopes
to become an advocate
for facial donations, and
thanked the donor family,
saying, "You will forever re-


main in our hearts and our
prayers and we are grateful
for your selflessness."
The surgery was paid for
by the Defense Depart-
ment; the hospital has a
$3.4 million grant from
the military for transplant
research. The new federal
health care law helped
make the operation pos-
sible, by allowing Wiens
to get insurance cover-
age. Wiens had no insur-
ance when he was injured;
Medicaid covered about
two dozen surgeries un-
til his disability payments
put him over the income
limit. The new law allowed
him to qualify for coverage
under his father's plan for
the drugs until he turns 26
in May.

No quick fix seen at Japan's nucear


The Associated Press

FUKUSHIMA, Japan
- Officials raced Mon-
day to restore electricity
to Japan's leaking nucle-
ar plant, but getting the
power flowing will hardly
be the end of their battle:
With its mangled machin-
ery and partly melted re-
actor cores, bringing the
complex under control is a
monstrous job.
Restoring the power to
all six units at the tsunami-
damaged complex is key,
because it will, in theory,
power up the maze of mo-
tors, valves and switches
that help deliver cooling
water to the overheated
reactor cores and spent
fuel pools that are leaking
radiation.
Ideally, officials believe
it should only take a day
to get the Fukushima Dai-
ichi nuclear under control
once the cooling system is
up and running. In reality,
the effort to end the crisis
is likely to take weeks.
Late Monday night, the
deputy director general of
Japan's nuclear safety body
suggested to reporters why
there is so much uncer-
tainty about when the job
will be finished.
"We have experienced a
very huge disaster that has
caused very large damage
at a nuclear power genera-
tion plant on a scale that
we had not expected," said
Hidehiko Nishiyama of


the Nuclear and Industrial
Safety Agency.
The nuclear plant's cool-
ing systems were wrecked
by the massive earthquake
and tsunami that devastat-
ed northeastern Japan on
March 11. Since then, con-
ditions at the plant have
been volatile; a plume of
smoke rose from two reac-
tor units Monday, prompt-
ing workers to evacuate.
In another setback, the
plant's operator said Mon-
day it had just discovered
that some of the cooling
system's key pumps at the
complex's troubled lnit
2 are no longer functional
- meaning replacements
have to be brought in. To-
kyo Electric Power Co. said
it had placed emergency
orders for new pumps,
but how long it would take
for them to arrive was un-
clear.
If officials can get the
power turned on, get the
replacement pumps work-
ing and get enough seawa-
ter into the reactors and
spent fuel pools, it would
only take a day to bring
the temperatures back to
a safe, cooling stage, said
Ryohei Shiomi, an official
with the Nuclear and In-
dustrial Safety Agency.
"There is nothing else
we can do but keep doing
what we've been doing,"
Shiomi said.
In other words, officials
would continue dousing
the plant in seawater -


and hope for the best.
An official of the U.S. Nu-
clear Regulatory Commis-
sion said in Washington
that Units 1, 2 and 3 have
all seen damage to their
reactor cores, but that
containment is intact. The
assessment dispels some
concerns about Unit 2,
where an explosion dam-
aged a pressure-reducing
chamber around the bot-
tom of the reactor core.
"I would say optimisti-
cally that things appear to
be on the verge of stabiliz-
ing," said Bill Borchardt,
the commission's executive
director for operations.
Monday's evacuation
of workers from the plant
came after smoke began
rising from the spent fuel
storage pool of the plant's
problem-plagued Unit 3,
Tokyo Electric spokesman
Hiroshi Aizawa said. Unit 3
also alarmed plant officials
over the weekend with a
sudden surge of pressure
in its reactor core.
What caused the smoke
to billow first from Unit
3 and then from Unit 2
is under investigation,
nuclear safety agency offi-
cials said. Still, in the days
since the earthquake and
tsunami, both reactors
have overheated and seen
explosions. Workers were
evacuated from the area to
buildings nearby, though
radiation levels remained
steady,.the officials said.
Problems set offbythe di-

sasters have ranged far be-
yond the shattered north-
east coast and the wrecked
nuclear plant, handing the
government what it has
called Japan's worst crisis
since World War II. Re-
building may cost as much
as $235 billion. Police es-
timate the death toll will
surpass 18,000.
Traces of radiation are
tainting vegetables and
some water supplies, al-
though in amounts the
government and health
experts say do not pose a
risk to human health in
the, short term. That has
caused the government to
ban the sale of raw milk,
spinach and canola from
prefectures orer a swath
from the plant toward To-


kyo. The government has
just started to test seafood.
Tokyo Electric said ra-
dioactive iodine about 127
times normal levels and
radioactive cesium about
25 times above the norm
were detected in seawater
100 meters off the Fuku-
shima nuclear plant.
The Health Ministry has
advised litate, a village
*of 6,000 people about 19
miles northwest of the
plant, not to drink tap wa-
ter due to elevated levels
of iodine. Ministry spokes-
man Takayuki Matsuda
said iodine three times the
normal level was detected
there about one twenty-
sixth of the level of a chest
X-ray in one liter of water.
"Please do not overreact,


and act calmly," Chief Cab-
inet spokesmanYukio Eda-
no said in the government's
latest appeal to ease public
concerns. "Even if you eat
contaminated vegetables
several times, it will not
harm your health at all."
Edano said Tokyo Electric
would compensate farm-
ers affected by bans on
milk, spinach and canola.
The World Bank said in a
report Monday that Japan
may need five years to re-
build from the disasters,
which caused up to $235
billion in damage, saying
the cost to private insur-
ers will be up to $33 billion
and that the government
will spend $12 billion on
reconstruction in the cur-
rent national budget.


Post
From Page 1A
Griffin is hoping for a big turn-
out at the March 28 meeting. She
is also talking to state legislators
and members of Congress in an
effort to bring pressure.to bear
against the potential closure.
Campbellton Mayor Wanda
Moore has signed a detailed let-
ter about the importance of the
post office to the town, and it is
being forwarded it to all govern-
ment representatives.
In the letter, Moore anticipates
and argues against what she
called "unacceptable options
to placate" the community that
might be offered in lieu of its ex-
isting post office.
Pointing out that less than 0.07
percent of the postal service's
operating budget is set aside by
law to maintain small and rural
post offices, Moore said "current
law prohibits the postal service
from closing or- consolidating
a post office solely because the
individual post office may have
expenses that exceed revenue."
Congress created this safeguard
against terminating post office
for two reasons, she continued.
"First, the law protects small
and rural communities postal-
dependent areas from whole-
sale post office closures that will
have a dramatic adverse impact
on the communities. Second,
post offices are part of a univer-
sal communications network,"
she wrote. "Each unit cannot be
evaluated independently, rev-
enue for a mail piece may be
earned in one community and


the value added in delivery is
accrued in another. In order to
ensure nondiscriminatory mail
service throughout the nation,
Congress obligates the postal
service to provide a maximum
degree of effective and regular
mail service to rural areas, com-
munities and small towns where
post offices are not self-sustain-
ing."
SAs for the alternatives she an-
ticipates the postal service will
be offering, Moore addressed
them one by one.
"The postal service may pro-
pose to replace our post office
with a 'communitypostal unit.'
This type of leased or sub-leased
privatized operation tends to
hire unqualified workers, who
will undermine the sanctity of
our mail," Moore's letter stated.
"Moreover, once these units re-
place a post office, the statutory
protections providing nondis-
criminatory mail service are null
and void."
Moore talked about another
option she thinks might be put
on the table. The postal service,
she said, could propose "the cre-
ation of rural or cluster box ser-
vice. Clearly, this is not the type
of service envisioned when Con-
gress required the postal service
to provide'a maximum degree of
effective and regular mail service
to rural areas, communities and
small towns.' *
"Moreover, this typeof service
would require us to await the
letter carrier at our mail box to
receive retail postal services,
which could include certified
mail, express mail and postal
money orders. If the mail must


be signed for, we would need"to
travel to the closest'real' post of-
fice, which is miles away." Finally,
the postal service may propose
to consolidate the Campbellton
office with another post office,
she wrote.
"We will lose our community
identity and the consolidation
would have dramatic impact on
our community's economy," she
said.
Campbellton hasn't had a post-
master since Jan Harrell retired
two years ago. Griffin said the
U.S. Postal Service never adver-
tised it and that the remaining
employees keep it running well.
According to Griffin, Campbell-
ton became a target for closure
because the postal service is tak-
ing aim at small post offices that
do not have postmasters.
Harrell said she knows from ex-
perience the importance of the
post office, and hopes it remains.
In the resolution the county
commission will consider today,
Campbellton is identified as be-
ing a Federal Enterprise Zone
Area of Critical Concern that
would be negatively impacted
by a closure. It points out that
Campbellton is a gateway city
into Florida, located as it is just
three miles south of the Florida-
Alabamawelcome center on U.S.
231. The resolution states that a
closure "will have catastrophic
detrimental economic impact"
on local businesses as well as se-
niors, minorities and other citi-
zens of Campbellton."
Joseph Breckenridge, spokes-
man for the U.S. Postal Service,
said the service is not happy
about having to contemplate


closures, but has little choice in
light of growing trends.
Breckenridge said the Internet
is the chief thing contributing to
the post office's hard realities.
"Our business is dropping
sharply," he said. "We have
shrinking resources and growing
demand. The growth of the pop-
ulation means there are .more
places needing delivery, but few-
er pieces of mail being delivered
to each address. These are big
bricks that are falling on us. I've
worked for the postal service for
35 years and I've never seen this
much change this fast."
He said before the economic
collapse, the change was hap-.
pening at a fairly steady pace. But
when the economy tanked, busi-
nesses like auto makers, realtors
and other advertisers that sent
i first class mail started getting in
trouble all at the same time. All
started reducing the amount of
mail they sent out.
"At the same time, we had
households having to make hard
choices, too," Breckenridge said.
"Their economic realities accel-
erated the electronic migration,
and we have a generation of
people coming along with huge
numbers of them who don't even
do traditional mail. We had to
start looking at ways to save the
service."
At its peak, the U.S. Postal Ser-
vice was handling 214 billion
pieces of mail a year. That has
dropped by 43 billion pieces, he
said.
"Our costs keep going up
and we still need to serve those
homes and businesses, a grow-
ing number of them. Our old


delivery average was about five
pieces of mail a day for the av-
erage household. Then it went
to four1 and by the end of the
decade, it will be down to about
three a day," he said. "It costs the
same to get a carrier to that box,
but the revenue is dwindling. We
have to squeeze as much fixed
cost out of the system as pos-
sible to make sure the system is
still here. We've got 20,000 post
offices that are losing money the
minute they open their doors,
but we have no intention of clos-
ing all of them. We do have to
find some alternatives to serving
these people, but at a lower cost,
where we can."
Breckenridge said the prob-
lems are exacerbated in smaller
communities.
"I've been to a lot of these small
town meetings and I know what
they're going through," he said.
"A small town atmosphere is a
very special thing, and often the
post office is right at the center
of it. I truly understand that, but
we have to do something to keep
the service viable. ... We get zero
tax revenue to run these post of-
fices; we've basically been told to
pay our own way."
He also pointed out that, at
its peak around 1900 when free
rural delivery became law, the
postal service had 75,000 post
offices. By 2010, the number had
dropped to 36,222.
"Post offices have been closing
all along. It's just accelerating,"
he said.
Breckenridge said a final deci-
sion on the Bascom and Camp-
bellton post offices is likely
months away.

Buoyed by strikes, Libyan rebels try to advance


The Associated Press

ZWITINA Energized
by international strikes on
Moammar Gadhafi's forc-
es, rebels advanced in an
attempt to reclaim an east-
ern city under siege by the
Libyan leader's troops on
Monday as the U.S. com-
mander of the allied cam-
paign warned that a stale-
mate could emerge from
the bombardment.
That could mean a lon-
ger conflict and an un-
clear end game as the U.S.
and European countries
try to calibrate how much
their now three-day old
air campaign officially
intended to protect civil-
ians should go toward
actively helping the rebel
cause. Henri Guaino, a top
adviser to the French pres-,
ident, said the allied effort
would last "a while yet."
Ali Zeidan, an envoy to
Europe from the opposi-
tion-created governing
council, told The Asso-
ciated Press that rebels
want to drive Gadhafi from
power and see him tried
- not have him killed. He
said that while airstrikes
have helped, the opposi-
tion needs more weapons
to win the fight.
"We are able to deal with
Gadhafi's forces by our-
selves" as long as it's a fair
fight, he said in Paris. "You
see, Gadhafi himself, we
are able to target him, and
we would like to have him
alive to face the interna-
tional or the Libyan court
for his crime .... We don't
*like to kill anybody ... even
Gadhafi himself."
Gadhafi forces are cur-
rently besieging two reb-
el-held cities Misrata
in the west and Ajdabiya
in the east. So far, the in-
ternational airstrikes do
not seem to have targeted
those troops, which have
repeatedly shelled both
cities. So far, allied bom-r
bardment has concentrat-
ed on knocking out Libyan
air defenses, but a signifi-
cant test of international
intentions will be whether
eventually the strikes by
ship-fired cruise missiles
and warplanes will try to
break those sieges by tar-
geting those troops on the
ground.
Doing so would appear
to come under the U.N.
mandate for the strikes,
which allows countries tp
take "all necessary mea-
sures" to protect civilians
in Libya.
But even if that hap-
pens, the fight is not over.
Instead, Libya could end
up divided between the
rebel-held east and mainly
regime-controlled west,
with Gadhafi largely un-
able to move, against op-
position areas without his
forces being devastated
by allied strikes. If rebel
fighters were to then try
to attack regime-held cit-
ies and march on Tripoli to
oust Gadhafi, it is unclear
what the U.S. and Euro-
pean stance would be.
InWashington, theAmer-
ican general running the
assault said there is no di-
rect coordination between
the allies and rebels and
no attempt to provide air
cover for their operations.
Gen. Carter Ham said Gad-
hafi might cling to power
once the bombardment
finishes, setting up a stale-
mate with allied nations
enforcing a no-fly zone.
In the immediate term,
rebels sought to turn to the
offensive, only days after
they.were in a frenzied re-
treat from advancing Gad-
hafi forces. The first round
of allied airstrikes late Sat-
urday and early Sunday
smashed a pro-Gadhafi
tank column that had been
advancing on the rebels'


capital, Benghazi, in the
east of the country.
Now with Benghazi re-
lieved, the opposition was
moving west, trying to
break the Gadhafi siege
that has been pounding
Ajdabiya since before the
allied campaign began.
Rebel fighters on Monday
pushed without resistance
down the highwaybetween
J the two cities littered


with burned out tanks and
armored personnel car-
riers hit in the airstrikes
- until they reached the
outskirts ofAjdabiya.
Along the way, they swept
into the nearby oil port of
Zwitina, just northeast of
the city, which was also the
scene of heavy fighting last
week though now had
been abandoned by re-
gime forces. There, a pow-
er station hit by shelling on
Thursday was still burn-
ing, its blackened fuel tank
crumpled, with flames and
black smoke pouring out.
In a field of dunes sev-
eral miles outside Ajd-
abiya, around 150 fighters
massed. Some stood on
the dunes with binoculars
to survey the positions of
pro-Gadhafi forces seal-
ing off the entrances of
the city. Ajdabiya itself was
visible, black smoke ris-
ing, apparently from fires
burning from fighting in
recent days.
"There are five Gadhafi
tanks and eight rocket
launchers behind those
trees and lots of 4x4s," said
one rebel fighter, Fathi
Obeidi, standing on a dune
and pointing at a line of
trees between his position
and the city.
Gadhafi forces have
ringed the city's entrance
and were battling with op-
position fighters inside,
rebels said. The plan is for
the rebel forces from Beng-
hazi "to pinch" the regime
troops while "those inside
will push out," Obeidi said.
He said a special comman-
do unit that defected to
the opposition early on in
the uprising was inside the
city leading the defense.
The rebel fighters that
advanced from Benghazi
were a ragtag bunch the
"citizen fighters" that have
been the main rebel force
since the beginning, local
citizens of the east who
took up weapons but have
little or no military train-
ing. The fighters in the
dunes Monday had assault
rifles and rocket-propelled
grenade launchers, along
with several anti-aircraft
guns mounted on the
backs of pickup trucks.
Mohammed Abdul-Mul-
lah, a 38-year-old civil en-
gineer from Benghazi who
was fighting with the rebel
force, said government
troops stopped all resis-
tance after the interna-


tional campaign began.
"They were running, by
foot and in small cars,"
he said. "The balance has
changed a lot. But pro-
Gadhafi forces are still
strong. They are a profes-
sional military and they
have good equipment.
Ninety percent of us rebels
are civilians, while Gad-
hafi's people are profes-
sional fighters."
Rebels defended their
support of the internation-
al intervention into. Libya
apparently feeling the
sting of criticism from oth-
er Libyans and Arabs who
warned the country could
be divided or collapse into
a civil war.
"Libya will not turn into
Somalia or Iraq. It will not
be divided. We are bat-
tling the Libyan people
are battling a gang of
mercenaries," Mohammed
al-Misrati, a rebel spokes-
man in the stronghold of
Misrata, told Al-Jazeera on
Monday.
Oil prices held above
$102 a barrel after the sec-
ond night of allied strikes
in the OPEC nation raised
fears of prolonged fight-
ing that has already slowed
Libyan oil production to a
trickle.
Guaino, the French pres-
idential adviser, said two
nights of bombing runs
and missile attacks had
hobbled Libya's air defens-
es, stalled Gadhafi's troops
and all but ended attacks
on civilians. A cruise mis-
sile late Sunday blasted
Gadhafi's residential com-
pound near his iconic tent,
and fighter jets destroyed a
line of tanks moving on the
rebel capital.
It was not known where
Gadhafi was when the
missile hit Sunday, but it
isREiiBsaii:-fa~aw; < rjtaa.i'* *;.


seemed to show that he is
not safe.
U.S. Defense Secretary
Robert Gates said late Sun-
day that the U.S. expects
turn over control of the
operation to a coalition
headed by France, Britain
or NATO "in a matter of
days," reflecting concern
that the U.S. military was
stretched thin by its cur-
rent missions. Turkey was
blocking NATO action,
which requires agreement
by all 28 members of the
alliance.
Since the airstrikes be-
gan, the number' of ci-
vilians fleeing Libya has
decreased as Libyans in
particular wait out the rap-
idly changing situation,
the U.N. refugee agency
said Monday. Last week, as
rebels were retreating from
Gadhafi's advance, the
stream of civilians crossing
into Egypt alone reached
3,000 a day. Then, after the
no-fly zone was imposed
Friday, the number fell
to about 1,500 a'day, said
UNHCR spokeswoman Sy-
bellaWilkes.
In Cairo, a group of Lib-
yans angry at the inter-
national intervention in
their homeland blocked
the path of U.N. Secretary-
General Ban Ki-moon fol-

BY SHELIA.MADER
Floridan Correspondent

The Marianna High School ju-
nior varsity came from behind
Friday afternoon to take a 6-5
win over the visiting Leon High
School Lions.
On Thursday evening, the Mar-
ianna junior varsity took the field

NCAA Tournament Outlook


Buckeyes dominating with


inside and outside game


EAST REGIONAL
AT NEWARK, N.J.
THURSDAY

(1) Ohio State vs.
(4) Kentucky
Everybody knew about
Jared Sullinger inside for
Ohio State. The Buckeyes
are becoming known
for long-range shooting
as well. They had 16 3s
- David Lighty had seven
- in the third-round win
over George Mason. That
came two weeks after they
hit 14 straight Jon Die-
bler had seven against
Wisconsin.
Kentucky freshman
guard Brandon Knight
hit a game-winner in the
closing seconds of his first
NCAA tournament game
and he followed that up
with a a season-best 30
points against West Vir-
ginia in the third round.
Four freshmen took the
Wildcats two rounds far-
ther than this last year and
a difficult rookie crop with
try to at least match that.
These schools have met
five times in the NCAA
tournament and the Buck-
eyes won them all.


(11) Marquette vs.
(2) North Carolina
Marquette was the 11th
of the record 11 Big East
teams in the field and the
Golden Eagles are just one
of two still playing. The .
Golden Eagles, one of four
double-digit seeds still
alive, haven't been to the
round of 16 since Dwy-
ane Wade led them to the
Final Four in 2003. Darius
Johnson-Odom is 7 of 13
from 3 in the two wins, the
second of which was over
Big East foe Syracuse.
North Carolina has been
a different'team since
Kendall Marshall took
over as starting point
guard and he had his best
game yet, a school NCAA
tournament-record 14 as-
sists, against Washington.
Fellow freshman Harrison
Barnes, who started right
away this season, aver-
aged 23 points in his first
two NCAA tournament
games as the Tar Heels
averaged 94.
The only guarantee
about this game is that
Coach Williams will walk
away the winner and loser.

WEST REGIONAL
AT ANAHEIM, CALIF.
THURSDAY

(3) Connecticut vs.
(2) San Diego State
Here's the difference in
the seasons these teams
have had. San Diego State
beat two teams ranked in
the Top 25. Connecticut
doubled that number
just in winning the Big
East tournament in five
days and has a national-
best total of nine for the
season.
The Aztecs got their
first NCAA win in the
second round and they
got by Temple in double
overtime despite strug-
gling to a season-low 18

Hannah Reian then dou-
bled to score Vogler, which
brought Marielle Vlgueles
out of the Chipola bullpen.
However, the onslaught
continued for the Lady
Commodores, with Taylor
Nicolosi hitting a bases-
loaded double to deep left
field to score Ortiz, Renn,
and Hilary Chapman, to
make it a 6-1 advantage.


After a walk to Shelby
Watson put runners on
first and second, Vigueles

by inducing a pop out by
Hannah Strickland, and
striking out Johansen.

points in the second half.
Kawhi Leonard, their best
offensive player, has been
struggling a bit but had 16
points and nine rebounds
against the Owls.
Both of Connecticut's
national championships
came from the West Re-
gional. Their star, Kemba
SWalker, has been on one of
college basketball's most
impressive runs, averag-
ing almost 26 points in
the seven-game winning
streak and running the
young offense which has
responded to him with
balanced support.

(1) Duke vs.
(5) Arizona
While everyone was
looking down to see how
Kyrie Irving's toe was
reacting to playing for the
first time in three months,
Nolan Smith gave another
of his consistent efforts
with 24 points. The Blue
Devils were just 5 of 20
on 3s against Michigan,
well off their 37.8 percent-
age from there during the
regular season, but a lot .
like the number in each of
their losses this season.
Arizona didn't have to
shake off much rust after
missing the tournament
last season to end a streak
of 25 straight years. Der-
rickWilliams lived up to
his star billing by blocking
a shot to win the opener
and then winning the next
game over Texas with a
three-point play with 9
seconds left.
The only times these
schools have played in the
tournament was in the
2001 title game, the third
of coach Mike Krzyzews-
ki's four championships.

SOUTHWEST REGIONAL
AT SAN ANTONIO
THURSDAY

(1) Kansas vs.
(12) Richmond
The Jayhawks looked


run back in the bottom of
the third on an RBI dou-
ble by Van Hook to score
Lovestrand. The Lady
Commodores added two
more runs in the third to
go up 8-2.
Steedley gave Chipola
a pair of runs in the sev-
enth with a two-RBI single
to score Lovestrand and
Samantha Rich, but there
would be no miracle come-
back in the works.
Natalie Walker started
and got the win for Gulf
Coast, allowing four earned
runs on 10 hits, two walks,
and eight strikeouts in sev-
en innings.
Black took the loss for
Chipola, giving up six
earned runs on six hits and
two walks in just two in-


strong in every depart-
ment in their two wins
and now they head to a
place that has been good
to coach Bill Self. Kansas
won the 2008 national
championship in San
Antonio. The Morris twins
have combined for 72
points and 41 rebounds so
far in the tournament.
Richmond is the high-

SOUTHEAST REGIONAL
NEW ORLEANS
THURSDAY

(8) Butler vs.
(4) Wisconsin
Butler's run to the
championship game last
season was surprising. Its
trip so far this tournament
has been heart-stop-
ping. Matt Howard won
the opener against Old
Dominion with a tip-in at
the buzzer and he capped
the wild ending on the
win over Pittsburgh with a
free throw with less than a
second to play.
The Badgers scored 70
points in each of two solid
wins in the tournament,
something they needed to
do to wipe away the dark
specter of scoring just 33
points in a Big Ten tourna-
ment loss to Penn State.
Jon Leuer and Jordan Tay-
lor led the offensive resur-
gence but coach Bo Ryan
will make sure defense is
not a far off thought.
This will be a true Mid-
west game with a lot more
screens and rebounds
than alley-oops and turn-
overs.

Florida and Florida St. head to Sweet 16



Gator's Boynton out of



practice, should play
The Associated Press


GAINESVILLE, Fla. Florida's best
defender missed practice Monday, not
the ideal situation considering Jimmer
Fredette and Brigham Young are up next.
Guard Kenny Boynton sat out prac-
tice because of a sprained left ankle. But
coach Billy Donovan expects the team's
second-leading scorer to be on the court
Thursday night when the second-seeded
Gators face the No. 3 seed Cougars in the
NCAA tournament in New Orleans.
"We fully expect him to play," Donovan
said. "I'm still a little bit cautious of where
he's at because I haven't seen him sprint,
cut, change direction, do those kind of
things."
Donovan said Boynton was dealing
with some pain, but added,that the 6-
foot-2 sophomore from Pompano Beach
didn't need to be on crutches or wear a
protective boot. Swelling was minimal,
the coach said.
"He definitely has some discomfort
there, but I don't feel like it's discomfort
that's going to prevent him from playing,"
Donovan said. "Now, I'll probably find
out a little bit more as we get into Tuesday
and Wednesday when he starts actually
really, really moving. ... They've been able
to really minimize the swelling. Now, the
biggest thing is what kind of pain does he
have."
Boynton, who averages 14 points a
game, has dealt with ankle problems
throughout his career. Donovan said his
history could hinder his ability to play
through the injury. Nonetheless, Boynton
hasn't missed a game in his two seasons.
S"I think there's a mental hurdle for him
that he's going to have to get over, that
he does feel good and he's not playing in
pain," Donovan said. "Hopefully, we can
get him to that point. But as it relates to
what we had to do the first 24 hours, we
thought that went very, very well."
Boynton injured his ankle Saturday af-
ter he landed awkwardly on UCLA center
Josh Smith's foot late in the game. Boyn-
ton returned to the court, but was clearly
hobbled, so Donovan pulled him down
the stretch.
The Gators, need Boynton at 100 per-
cent, especially since he'll be guarding


Florida's Kenny Boynton (1) shoots in the
first half of an NCAA college basketball game
against Georgia in Gainesville, Fla., Thursday,

win over Georgia.

the nation's leading scorer, Fredette, in
the Southeast region semifinals.
Fredette scored 37 points against Boyn-
ton and Florida in the first round of last
year's NCAA tournament. Boynton held
Fredette to 23 points in regulation, but
the BYU star hit several big shots in over-
time and helped the Cougars pull away
for a 99-92 victory in double OT.
Fredette scored 66 points in BYU's first
two NCAA tournament games last week.
"When you're dealing with a guy like
that, there's a lot of times that you are at
his mercy because he's got the ball in his
hands," Donovan said. "When you get the
ball to a great player in space, it's not like
you're going to prevent the guy from get-
ting a shot off. It's going to go up.... For us
to sit there and say we're going to elimi-
nate him even getting a shot off is just to-
tally inaccurate on our part to even think
that.
"Everybody's tried to defend the guy,
with different people, box-and-ones,
trapping him, running at him. Whoever is
on him will do the very, very best that they
can. Whether or not that's good enough to
prevent him from making shots remains
to be seen."

VCU up next for Seminoles


The Associated Press

CHICAGO -Virginia Commonwealth
is the team that supposedly didn't de-
serve a spot in the NCAA tournament,
and Florida State was hardly a lock to
advance.
Now look at them.
The Rams and Seminoles are headed
to the round of 16 for a matchup that
few would have envisioned when the
brackets were announced, and one that
will be a first for the NCAA tournament.
Never before have a 10th seed and
11th seed met, but that's exactly what
will happen Friday in San Antonio after
both teams left the United Center with
lopsided victories on Sunday.
The 11th seed in the Southwest region,
VCU routed Purdue 94-76 and 10th-
seeded Florida State knocked off Notre
Dame 71-57 on Sunday night.
"It's VCU against the world," said.for-
ward Jamie Skeen, who had 13 points.
"Nobody else thought we could do this.
Nobody else's bracket said that we're go-
ing to make it to the Sweet 16. Honestly,
if it was me and I was just a regular per-
son, I wouldn't put VCU in the Sweet 16.
Who would have thought?"
Well, the Rams, that's who.


Bradford Burgess scored 23 points,
and the Rams (26-11) won for the third
time in five nights, routing third-seeded
Purdue to advance to the round of 16 for
the first time.
Few would have seen the Rams getting
this far as they stumbled into the tour-
nament with five losses in eight games,
and they were so bad in February that
coach Shaka Smart decided to have an
exorcism of sorts in practice before the
Colonial Athletic Association tourna-
ment.
The Rams ended that month with four
losses in five games. Smart wanted his
team to forget about that, so in a sym-
bolic move, he ripped the February page
out of the calendar and burned it.
"Ashes everywhere. It was great," said
Joey Rodriguez, the quick point guard.
Even better is this. '
The Rams beat Drexel and George Ma-
son before falling to Old Dominion in
the conference tournament.
Then, they got invited to the NCAAs
even though they had 11 losses. Critics
wondered why they were selected over
more favorable teams.
Now, after three impressive wins in
five nights, the question is, who can beat
them?

PREVIOUS SOLUTION: "In every tyrant's heart there springs in the end this
poison, that he cannot trust a friend." Aeschylus
(c) 2011 by NEA, Inc. 3-22


Dear Annie: I am having a problem and
don't know what to do. Please do not sug-
gest counseling, because I tried, and my
wife Won't even consider it.
We married 17 years ago. Both of us
were in our mid-50s. She had two grown
children, and I had none. There wasn't
supposed to be any baggage coming into
this marriage. However, a few months af-
ter our wedding, her son's wife kicked him
out for cheating with both men and
women. For the past 10 years, we have
had nothing but problems with this guy.
He is a drunken bum, and I suspect he is
doing hard drugs now. He has had a few
jobs, none for very long. His massive tem-
per gets him fired every time.
We are retired on Social Security and
my military pension. For some reason,
this 51-year-old guy thinks I should sup-
port him. He lives in my travel trailer and
draws food stamps. He takes enough odd
jobs to pay for his bad habits, but regard-
less of how much he earns, he is back over
here needing money for gas or groceries,
and of course, Mommy will not say no.
She enables him and makes excuses for
everything he does. As a result, we fight
continuously. My stepson is eligible for
medical care at the VA. He is HIV-posi-
tive and uses that as the reason he is a


Albert Camus, a French writer who worked
actively with the Resistance during World War
II, wrote, "Don't walk in front of me; I may not
follow. Don't walk behind me; I may not lead.
Walk beside me and just be my friend."
Your partner is your friend, and sometimes
your opponents will be too, perhaps unwit-
tingly telling you what to do to make or break a
contract. This deal is an example. Partner blasts
you into four spades. West leads the heart ace:
five, king, four. West leads a second heart, East
taking the trick and shifting to a diamond.
You have three top losers: two hearts and
one club. You must play the trump suit without
loss. Normally, that would involve taking a fi-
nesse, hoping West had the king. But can he in
this deal?
No! West passed over his partner's opening
bid and has already produced an ace. He cannot
have the spade king as well. So, play a spade to
dummy's ace and hope the king comes down.
An unlikely chance is better than none.


Horoscope

ARIES (March 21-April
19) Because you are
likely to use your insights
far more effectively than
usual, substantial gains
can be realized, especially
concerning your commer-
cial affairs.
TAURUS (April 20-May
20) -A staunch and force-
ful ally is likely to become
an excellent spokesperson
on your behalf, clarifying
your position 'to all the
right people.
GEMINI (May 21-June
20) Certain tasks that
proved to be too tough for
you yesterday can sudden-
ly be handled with ease.
CANCER (June 21-July
22) Interactions with
members of the opposite
gender are likely to work
out quite well for you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
- Give more priority time
than usual to the needs of
someone for whom you
are responsible.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
- Fortunately, your vision,
focus and expectations will
be synchronized, because
there will be some complex
mental chores that require
your entire attention.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
-The possibilities for add-
ing more to your resources
are very encouraging.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov.
22) For some strange
reason, you are likely to be
more closely scrutinized
than usual, so it behooves
you to be on your best be-
havior.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-
Dec. 21) Associates will
be more cooperative and
willing to help you achieve
your objectives if they think
your ideas are their own.
Let them take the credit.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-
Jan. 19) A couple of
friends might depend on
you a bit more than usual,
but try to help them.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
19) Don't get in a dither
if you suddenly find your-
self being drawn into a
competitive situation.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March
20) A vivid imagination
and strong willpower can
work wonders. You'll be
able to take advantage of
your opportunities if you
picture yourself in positive
circumstances.


loser. But when you blow several hundred
dollars in three days, there is something
wrong. We are at the point of divorce. Any
suggestions? Marriage on the Rocks
Dear Marriage: Some parents believe
that enabling their children is a way to
help them. It is not. It enfeebles them and
makes them dependent. However, unless
you can convince your wife of this, the
situation will not change. Your choice is
to give up or walk away. If you want to see
a counselor for help with that decision,
your wife does not need to go with you.
We also suggest you urge your stepson
to take advantage of the counseling .and
medical services offered through the'VA.
Dear Annie: At school, there are some
boys who think it's funny to call me ugly
and fat, and to curse at me. I have no idea
what to do. I've talked to the counselors
at school, but I keep feeling maybe every-
one would be better off if I just left. Please
help. Hurt
Dear Hurt: This is a textbook case of bul-
lying, and the school counselors should
be doing more to stop it. Please talk to
your parents, and ask them to speak to
the principal and insist that the school
intervene. In the meantime, hold your
head up, ignore these immature boys,
and check out kidpower.org.

NFL


No legal ground for court to halt lockout


The Associated Press

MINNEAPOLIS The NFL
asked a federal judge Monday to
keep its lockout in place, claim-
ing there are no legal grounds to
stop it while accusing the players
of trying to manipulate the law
with a bogus antitrust lawsuit.
The NFL filed its arguments in
federal court in St. Paul, Minn.,
where U.S. District Judge Susan
Richard Nelson has scheduled
an April 6 hearing on the players'
request to stop the lockout. The
injunction request was filed the
same day as an antitrust lawsuit
by Tom Brady, Drew Brees and
seven other current NFL players
against the league on March 11.
The NFL said any decision on
a lockout must wait until the
National Labor Relations Board
rules on an unfair labor practice
charge against the now-dissolved
players' union that contends the
players "failed to confer in good
faith." That charge was filed Feb.
14 and amended on March 11 to
include reference to the union's
decertification.
The NLRB said the case is still
under investigation and had no
further comment.
The legal salvo is just the latest
in the fight between the league
and players. The antitrust suit
was filed the day the union dis-


solved, the collective bargaining
talks broke down and the NFL
owners locked out the players af-
ter the two sides failed to forge a
new CBA.
In arguing that Congress has
barred judges from halting lock-
outs, the league cited the Norris-
LaGuardiaAct Depression-era
legislation passed with the intent
of limiting employers' ability to
crack down on unions, includ-
ing their ability to seek court
orders halting strikes. The NFL
contends the law also protects
an employer's right to impose a
lockout in a labor dispute.
Gregg Levy and other NFL
attorneys also argue that the
union's "tactical and unilateral"
maneuver to "instantaneously
oust" federal labor law was ille-
gal, and that the decertification
proved the players did not want
to negotiate in good faith.
The 57-page filing was filled
with references and quotes from
players, accusing them and the
NFLPA of disbanding whenever
it served their purposes at the
bargaining table.
"We decertified so that we
could fight them from locking
us out and go back to work," Jeff
Saturday, the NFLPA vice presi-
dent, said in a radio interview
the day after the March 11 decer-
tification, according to the court

filing. "And we feel like ... we can
still negotiate this anytime."
According to the filing, NFLPA
president Kevin Mawae said in a
Sept. 29 interview that decertifi-
cation was an "ace in our sleeve"
that worked in the late 1980s in
favor of the players.
"It's been a part of the union
strategy since I've been in the
league," Mawae said.
The league also cited com-


ments from Baltimore Ravens
receiver Derrick Mason nine
days before the union dissolved.
"So are we a union? Per se, no.
But we're still going to act as if we
are one," Mason, an NFLPA play-
er representative, said on March
2, according to the court filing.
The NFL said the players are
unable to argue that they will
suffer "irreparable harm" by the
lockout, certainly when com-


pared with the "hardships" fac-
ing the NFL, and that public is
better served when the courts
stay out of labor disputes.
The league accused the union
of a "heads I win, tails you lose"
strategy, claiming the players
wanr the league subject to an-
titrust claims "if it ceases or re-
fuses to continue football opera-
tions, and it is subject to antitrust
liability if it does not."


NFL players received over 50 percent of revenue


The Associated Press

Figures'obtained by The Asso-,
ciated Press underscore the sub-
stantial divide between the NFL
and the locked-out players on a
core issue: What portion of addi-
tional revenue goes to players.
Players' share of incremental
increases to all revenues under
the NFL's expired contract was
about 53 percent from 2006-09,
according to calculations by the
accounting firm that audited the
collective bargaining agreement
for both sides.
The NFL has repeatedly said
that 70 percent of extra revenue
went to players, a main justifi-
cation for changing the sport's
economic system. The league's
numbers remove the portion of


revenues about $1 billion a
year taken off the top for own-
ers to spend on expenses.
Data prepared in 2010 by Price-
waterhouseCoopers and ob-
tained Monday by the AP show
that about $3.8 billion of the $7.2
billion in incremental revenue
over those four years 52.9
percent went toward players'
salaries and benefits.
The league and players agree
on the $3.8 billion; they disagree
on how to look at revenues. Set-
ting aside 'the off-the-top ex-
pense credits for things such
as stadium improvements or
NFL Network makes the play-
ers' take a higher percentage.
The figures from Pricewater-
houseCoopers calculated last
year at the request of the NFL


Players Association include
that upfront money, because it
is part of the league's gross rev-
enue.
"The NFL wants to artificially
inflate the percentage of incre-
mental revenue going to players
by excluding revenues that never
go to players," NFLPAspokesman
George Atallah said. "League
officials ... have been selling a
lockout to owners based on mis-
leading and incomplete finan-
cial information. They excluded
the cost credits to be able to tell
owners that player costs are ris-
ing faster than all revenues. This
is not true."
Responding from the owners'
meeting in New Orleans, NFL
general counsel Jeff Pash said:
"The concept is in the collective


bargaining agreement we nego-
tiated that total revenue is the
basis on which the salary cap is
calculated. There is no dispute
between us and the union that
the players received 70 percent
since we entered into the agree-
ment (in 2006). If you want to
change the denominator, you
can change the percentage..'
"The figures we or the union
use to compute then comes out
to 70 percent or even 75 per-
cent at times. In terms of what's
in the collective bargaining
agreement, 70 percent is accu-
rate," Pash added.
Earlier Monday, NFL spokes-
man Greg Aiello wrote in an el
mail to the AP: "Expense credits'
were used in the last agreements
by agreement with the union to


cover certain expenses needed
to put on the games. The NFL
did not.exclude anything unilat-
erally."
Owners locked out the players
more than a week ago, creating
the NFL's first work .stoppage
since 1987. That came hours
after the NFLPA renounced its
status as a union, allowing play-
ers to file a class-action antitrust
lawsuit in federal court.
The main sticking point
throughout CBA negotiations
was how to divide the NFL's
more than $9 billion in annual
revenues. All along, the league
has said it needed to rework the
CBA because too large a por-
tion of new revenues have been
devoted to players' salaries and
benefits.
