Sunland Center


Staff investigated for alleged abuse


BY MORGAN CARLSON
mcarlson@jcfloridan.com

The Sunland Center in Marian-
na was put on notice by the fed-
eral government that the center's
eligibility for participation in


the Medicaid program could be
cancelled.
Melanie Etters, the spokesper-
son for the Florida Agency for
Persons with Disabilities which
oversees Sunland, said the cen-
ter is working with the Centers


for Medicare and Medicaid Ser-
vices and the Florida Agency for
Health Care Administration to
resolve the issue.
Etters said a staff person at
Sunland allegedly struck a resi-
dent on March 10 with her hand,


like a "slap to the top of the
head." Two other staff persons
saw the alleged abuse, but didn't
report it to their supervisor until
the next day. .
This is against Sunland policy,
Etters said.


The Centers for Medicare and
Medicaid Services gave notice
, that effective May 20 it would
not make payments for services
to clients at Sunland because

allegedly


cheat on


FCAT
BY MORGAN CARLSON
mcarls6n@jcfloridan.com

Four Jackson County students'
FCAT retake exams were invalidated
after the state found the student's
answers were so similar there was a
one-in-one-trillion chance the stu-
dents gould have had those answers
in normal testing circumstances.
The students two juniors each
at Marianna High School and Malo-
ne High School were sitting side-
by-side or in very close proximity to
each other while retaking the read-
ing exams at their schools in April,
according to district Director of Stu-
dent Services ShirlWilliams.
The district has appealed the
state's decision to invalidate one of
the student's exams. That student
says he was not aware his classmate
was looking at his exam. He is the
only one of the four who would have
passed the test, Williams said.
Williams said the student who al-
legedly copied the answers from
the passing exam only completed
a portion of the exam. Even though
the exam wasn't identical to his
classmate's, it was still flagged by the
state for surpassing the "one-in-one-
trillion chance" threshold.
Williams said the students were
questioned, and in both instances
they admitted to looking at their
classmates' answers. The students
reportedly said they would wait until
their two test monitors' backs were
turned to look at their classmates'
answer. Another student said the
test books only have two questions

Rally for referendum
sees good attendance

The Jackson Yes Campaign kicked
off with a well-attended rally at the
Russ House in Marianna Tuesday,
where the mood was celebratory as
organizers started moving to imple-
ment a change in Jackson County's
liquor law.
People socialized and enjoyed
beer, wine and naturally, liquor
- on the porch, waiting for speak-
ers to the officially launch the cam-
paign from a podium inside.
Their aim is to trigger a mail-in
referendum that would ask voters

M W Art, music teachers outline grant uses


MARK SKINNER/FLORIDAN
Graceville Elementary School music teacher Karen Bouton
shows one of the international instruments she added to
her program, thanks to a mini-grant awarded by the Chipola
Regional Arts Association.


BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbuckhalter@jcfloridan.com

At its monthly meetingTuesday, the
Chipola Regional Arts Association
found out how seven music and art
teachers spent the $200 mini-grants
they were given by the association
this school year. The association
gave 14 mini-grants in 2010-2011,
four more than usual, and has given
about $24,000 through the many
years of the grant program. The asso-
ciation reaches out to five counties,
including Jackson, Liberty, Calhoun,
Washington and Holmes. Half of this
year's grant recipients appeared at
the association's meeting last month
to share their stories.
With school funding for the arts
getting leaner by the year, those little
cash infusions are getting more and
more important, the teachers told
association members. They were
used this year to buy everything
from furniture-moving dollies to ul-
tra-thin gold foil paper.
Graceville Elementary School


"Thank you so much. I can't
buy a pencil without having a
daggumfundraiser"
Gayle Grissett,
W.R. Tolar K-8 School music teacher

music teacher Karen Bouton bought
several instruments from around
the world with her money. In doing
so, she incorporated a bit of cultural
education in her music lessons. "You
really, really helped," she told the
association. "The grant went a long
way."
Gayle Grissett of W.R. Tolar K-8
School in Liberty County, used her
money to buy two dollies, some
wood panels and a handful of xy-
lophone pins to keep those instru-
ments in good repair. A parent
volunteer turned the wood panels
into backdrops for the plays that
Grissett's fourth grade students put
on from time to time. The dollies are
used to move the school piano back


and forth from the gymnasium for
those performances.
Grissett said the association mon-
ey is vital to her program. "Thank
you so much," she said. "I can't buy
a pencil without having a daggum
fundraiser. That little $200 means a
lot every year. I count on it, and we
really use it."
Poplar Springs High School teach-
er Heather Howell usually uses her
grant money for a special art project
each year. This time around she had
to use half of it for the bare essentials
like crayons, markers and paints.
The rest was set aside to buy fuel for
her students' upcoming field trip to
the Wiregrass Museum of Art. Many
of her students have never been to a
museum and are excited about the
opportunity to enlarge their vision
of the world, she said.
Golson Elementary School music
teacher Karen Smith bought an ex-
ternal speaker system with a docking
station for her iPod so that she could

Our Opinion



Let the people


decide outcome


tourism destination not on the scale of Panama
City, but a destination none the less. We have
lorida Caverns, Blue Springs, Lake Seminole, golf
courses, cave diving, boating, fishing, hunting, and
other attractions. When people come to Florida, be it
South Florida or the Gulf coast, they come to relax and
enjoy themselves. They like to be able to sit down and
have a drink, if they want one.
The inability to sell liquor by the drink does deter
certain restaurant and hotel operators from locating
in Jackson County. Allowing liquor by the drink won't
create a bar on every corner there are zoning regula-
tions and state laws that limit where bars can exist, and
how many there can be.
At this point, organizers are in the process of collect-
ing signatures so that the question can be placed on the
ballot. We support this effort 44 years is a long time
between referendums, and it's time the issue was put to
residents again. We urge those who agree to support the
petition drive as well.
The question will ultimately be decided by the voters.
There can be no harm in that kind of direct democracy.

Toying with financial disaster


BY DONNA BRAZILE

olks, this is somewhat urgent:
Can we stop Congress from
causing irreparable dam-
age to our nation's economy? Is
it possible to raise our national
debt limit without more of the
partisan rancor, blame game or
name-calling?
Or will we default on our debts
because one side has ruled out put-
ting everything on the table even
before real serious negotiations
start?
The truth is that we have to raise
the debt ceiling to pay our bills.
We need to borrow more money to
meet our current debts. We don't
have the money on hand, plain and
simple. If we do not borrow to pay'
our debts, our interest rates will
rise; loans themselves will dry up. It
will be disastrous.
Secretary of the Treasury Tim
Geithner sent lawmakers a letter
beseeching their swift action in
paying our bills. A default was "un-
thinkable," he said, and added that
failure to raise the debt could cost
"millions of American jobs."
How bad is that? Maybe we
should ask millions of our fellow
citizens still struggling to make
ends meet just how tough the econ-
omy is right now. '
Nevertheless, some of our na-
tion's leaders are choosing to play a
game of chicken with America. It's
an exceedingly dangerous game.
Moreover, it is treacherous because
both major political parties know ,


that just their making the threat to
hold our debt payments prisoner
resulted in a lower credit rating.
Let there be no error here. House
Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio,
knows the reckless risks he and his
party are taking with our national
credit, our economy, with millions
of American's jobs just so they
can shape American in their own
image. ,
It's true that as a member of
the U.S. Senate, President Barack
Obama once voted against raising
the debt ceiling. Still Democrats
helped to move the ball past the
goal posts and raised it under Presi-
dent George W. Bush.
Obama admitted that his vote
was a mistake. But make no mis-
take, we cannot afford coming
off the worst recession in a genera-
tion to play games with fragile our
economic recovery.
Boehner told Fox News's Chris
Wallace that failure to pay our
debts "...would be a financial di-
saster not only for our country, but
for the worldwide economy." He
added, "You can't create jobs if you
default on the federal debt."
Terrifyingly, playing with the debt
limit is very much on the table. The
speaker laid out the Republican
plan to play Russian roulette with
our good credit in a speech to Wall
Street this week.
The speaker threatened to with-
hold Republican votes to pay on
our debt, without massive conces-
sions from the president. In what
amounts to a kidnapping note,


Boehner demanded the president
hand him everything they com-
mand of him.
World business leaders are not
amused with the Republican
brinksmanship games. The United
States "risks eroding its standing at
the core of the global monetary sys-
tem," the chief executive of PIMCO,
Mohamed El-Erian, wrote in the
Financial Times.
Here is what is ripe about Boeh-
ner and Cantor's high-noon show
down: Wall Street experts disagree
with the Republicans. The facts are,
for all the trillions in cuts Boehner
demands, the national debt will not
be reduced a red cent.
Spending cuts alone don't pay
down debts. We also need econom-
ic growth and increased revenue
to pay down the national debt.
Wednesday we got the news that
Obama has reduced our monthly
debt by one-half, compared to this
time last year. Yet, we still owe $14
trillion. That means the wealthy
must forego their extended tax
holiday, which if they don't, will
cost the U.S. Treasury $1.3 trillion
in lost revenue.
I've never been more serious:
What the Republicans are risking
with this game of chicken is far
more dangerous to our future eco-
nomic viability and the dream of
millions of Americans. Playing this
game plays dice with our credit.
The announcement of this Repub-
-lican standoff caused Standard &
Poor to downgrade our credit rating
April 19.


Letters to the Editor


Liquor by the drink will
cause more problems

I have just read the Floridan
article about the new liquor by the
drink petition drive. I find several of
the assertions made by the Growth
Alliance to be arguable, and would
appreciate the opportunity to
respond.
Proponents of the petition assert
that our county's present local op-
tion for semi-dry is at least in part
responsible for some economic ills.
They further assert that by opting
for a wet county, we will improve
the quality of life in Jackson County
because of some subsequent
economic growth. I take issue with
both assertions.
To claim that liquor by the drink
will improve the quality of life here
is a little short-sighted. Having
liquor available by the drink will
result in an increase in the number
of alcohol-related traffic accidents
and ultimately, accident-related
deaths. For example, today you can
dine at several local restaurants and
have one or more low-volume al-
coholic drinks, such as a beer. If the
proposed referendum is successful,
you can have the same number of
mixed drinks or wine, but you will
then have consumed twice or more
as much alcohol. A person in this
scenario will have had the same
number of drinks, but he or she will
now be more dangerous behind a
steering wheel. Are people going to
drink and drive? Sure they will. But
we as a society do not have to make
it easier.
The University of North Carolina
looked at this issue after counties
there were first given the local op-
tion for wet and dry. The counties
that opted for liquor by the drink
served a great deal more alcohol.
Those same counties also experi-
enced a 16 to 24 percent increase in
the number of alcohol-related ac-
cidents as a result. Another study in


California (Alcohol-related crashes
and alcohol availability in grass-
roots communities) looked at small
communities which increased the
availability of on-site alcohol. The
study found increased availability
was detrimental to highway safety.
It really boils down to greater avail-
ability of alcohol leading to greater
consumption and a larger number
of auto accidents. Are voters here
prepared to sign a petition or cast
a yes vote that will inevitably result
in the loss of life to a drunk driver?
Will such a thing improve our qual-
ity of life?
The next issue is an economic
one. Everyone understands that
you should compare apples to
apples if you want to be fair. So we
should compare our county to oth-
er counties in the state of Florida
that have similar population, in-
dustry, geography and the like. For
example, let us compare Jackson
County to Gadsden County. Both
are similar in population, industry,
geography, etc. However, Gadsden
is wet and Jackson is semi-dry. You
can see where I am going. We all
understand that Jackson County is
much better off than Gadsdeni in
employment, growth, and potential
growth. Being wet has not done
much for Gadsden. As for Jackson
County, it obviously did not stop
Ruby Tuesday's from coming to
Jackson County. It did not stop
Applebee's from locating in semi-
dry Santa-Rosa County. By the way,
our county employment rate is
better than the state average and
better than most wet counties.
Is it likely that national chain
restaurants look at whether they
can serve liquor by the drink when
choosing a new location? Sure
they do. But semi-wet counties
attract them all the time all over
the United States. For example, the
state of Texas has 264 counties. At
the time of this letter, only 44 of
them are totally wet. Most counties
in Texas are semi-.dry. Texas is an


economically strong state and be-
ing more dry than wet has not held
them back. Almost every national
restaurant chain you can mention
does business there.
Obviously, you do not have to
allow.liquor by the drink in order to
be "economically progressive." The
final business decision to locate a
restaurant comes down to traffic
count, competition, profit margin
and a host of other factors, of which
alcohol is only one. So, if someone
is telling you they will not build a
national chain restaurant in your
county only because you won't let
them serve a mixed drink, they are
not telling you the whole story.
Finally, do you really want a new
"Tavern" near your home. By the
estimate of the Alliance we could
have 5, 6 or more new BARS open
soon after the referendum. I do not
believe anyone thinks that lounges
will improve the appearance, ap-
peal or quality of life in Jackson
County. Be careful what you sign!
Let us spend our time pursuing
and recruiting more companies
like the Family Dollar Distribution
Center and less time and energy on
referendums to increase alcohol
consumption.
Yours truly,
KEITH WILLIAMS

Remember these colors

As I was reading the Friday paper
concerning the liquor by the drink
issue, I was so clearly reminded of
the color green ... the love of the
green. Those who are pushing this
agenda paint a rosy picture of the
aftereffects of the passing of this
bill. Sadly to say, this will not be
the case for many of the children
and homes of Jackson County. For
them, there will be new colors to
mix with the old: black and blue,
and, sadly for some ... red.

Panel: Judge's courthouse


actions broke rules


The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE A state
investigative panel on
Tuesday accused a Florida
appellate judge of violat-
ing judicial ethics in con-
nection with the building
of a costly courthouse that
critics have dubbed the
"Taj Mahal" because of its
grandiose design, massive
size and amenities.
Allegations against 1st
District Court of Appeal
Judge Paul Hawkes include
ordering the destruction
of public records related
to the $48.8 million court-
house in Tallahassee.
The destroyed docu-
ments were relevant to
the Judicial Qualifications
Commission's investiga-
tion of Hawkes and other
reviews of the courthouse
project, according to the
complaint.
Besides bringing allega-
tions that he ramrodded
through the courthouse
project, the commission
alleges Hawkes violated
judicial canons by bully-
ing court staffers, mislead-
ing his fellow judges and
directing his law clerk to
help one of his sons, a law-
yer, with a case appealed
from the 1st District to the
Florida Supreme Court.
The commission's in-
vestigative panel filed the
probable cause charges
with the Supreme. Court,
which has final authority
over judges.
If the justices find Hawkes
violated judicial canons
he could face penalties
ranging from a reprimand
to removal from office.
"Your willingness to cir-
cumvent policy practice
and people to gain your ob-
jectives without regard to
Ithe propriety of the means


employed demonstrates
an inability to distinguish
between the proper and
improper use of the pres-
tige of your judicial office,"
the panel wrote. It added
that the allegations, if
proved, "demonstrate your
unfitness to hold the office
of judge."
Hawkes plans a "vigor-
ous defense against all
charges," his lawyer, Ken-
neth Sukhia, said in a
statement.
Hawkes has 20 days to
file a formal response and
seek a hearing before the
commission to challenge
the allegations.
Sukhia said the records
Hawkes was accused of
destroying were "courtesy
copies" of budget requests
and the originals remain
on file in the state courts
administrator's office.
"The subject, surplus re-
cords, were removed in an
innocuous housekeeping
effort long before any is-
sues were raised over the
construction of the new
courthouse," Sukhia said.
Having his law clerk edit
his son's brief was permis-
sible because the son was
representing the Com-
mission on Capital Cases
in the appeal and Hawkes
was a member of the com-
mission, Sukhia said.
"Judge Hawkes was at
all times acting in what he
firmly believed to be the
best interests of the state,
the judiciary and the court
on which he serves," he
said.
The judge is a former
Republican state repre-
sentative who previously
worked as a top legisla-
tive staffer and aide to
then-Gov. Jeb Bush, who
appointed Hawkes to the
court in 2003.


His colleagues elected
him chief judge at the end
of 2008, but the Supreme
Court removed him from
that post in November
amid the courthouse flap.
He remains on the bench,
though.
Then-Chief Financial
Officer Alex Sink last year
questioned the project's
cost.
She and other crit-
ics complained about
such amenities as private
soundproof bathrooms as
well as kitchens for each of
the 15 judges, miles of Afri-
can mahogany trim, gran-
ite counter-and desk-tops,
etched glass windows, a
glass dome and massive
columns inside and out.
The court moved into the
building late last year.
The complaint accuses
Hawkes of violating judi-
cial canons by impairing
public confidence in the
courts, failing to respect
and comply with the law,
being impatient and un-
dignified, expressing bias,
failing to accord all parties
a right to be heard and not
disposing of judicial mat-
ters fairly, promptly and
efficiently.
The panel said Hawkes
was discourteous to and
impatient with state offi-
cials overseeing construc-
tion of the Tallahassee-
based court's new building.
Department of Manage-
ment Services staffers told
investigators they felt he
was "beating up" on them.
Hawkes also had the
project director dismissed
for questioning its cost and
brushed off staffers' bud-
getary concerns by saying
he "would simply return to
the Florida Legislature and
obtain more money," the
panel alleged.

All of the money they
raised was donated
to the Relay f6r Life
Foundation.

if they want to legalize the
sale of "hard" liquor by the
drink in Jackson County
and, ultimately, steer a
successful referendum
question.
To achieve the referen-
dum, the Alliance must
gather 7,000 names on a
petition, or 25 percent of
the registered voters. They
must sign within 120 days
of Tuesday's launch.
If enough signatures
are gathered, the election
would be held within 60
days of the signatures be-
ing presented to the clerk
of court and verified as
coming from registered
voters in Jackson County.
Currently, Jackson Coun-
ty is "damp," meaning that
package sales of all alco-
hols are allowed. Beer and
wine can be sold by the
drink at licensed estab-
lishments, but hard liquor
sales are\restricted to pack-
age only.
On Tuesday, Alliance
chairman Tommy Lass-
man, secretary Jamie
Streetman, and treasurer
Chuck Hudson each took
a turn at galvanizing the
crowd.
"This is not about legis-
lating and regulating mor-
als," said Streetman. "It's a

"We've got some hard-

Streetman, who owns a
restaurant in downtown
Marianna, noted "I have
vendors who will stay
elsewhere when they're
doing business in Jackson
County because they can
go to Bay or Leon or Hous-
ton County and have their
drink, and then they come
back here the next day to '
finish their business."
Streetman, Lassman and
Hudson urged support-
ers to take a few petition
sheets home with them
and gather signatures.

teers to help get the word

This isn't the first time
the district has had FCAT
testing discrepancies.
Several years ago, law
enforcement got involved
when a student took more
than 30 -pictures of an
FCAT exam. The student's

cated by the police. The
state stopped using the
test because it was 'hard
to tell how far the pictures
spread. The student said

who just want the oppor-

came from a wide range of
ages; those attending and
in favor of the referendum
and change ranged in age
from as young as 22 to as
old as 81.
In addition to inviting a
host of volunteers to join
the effort, the Alliance has
hired a consultant and
launched a website. The

drive is campaign coordi-
nator Corey Peterson. He

The Alliance's Jackson

A mail-out campaign was
set to begin Wednesday
morning as well, and would
be carried out in phases

Jackson County; the last
vote on the issue was 1967
when Jackson Countywent
from dry to damp.
Those who support the
referendum say allowing
liquor sales by the drink
would lead to economic
benefits. They say it would
likely mean more over-
night stays in motels, more
revenue for some other
businesses, and more
high-end restaurants and
other businesses moving
into the county who cur-
rently reject the county be-
cause of the liquor policy.
They argue-those changes
would lead to more sales
and property tax revenue
for the local government.
Opponents of the refer-
endum say liquor by the
drink would lead to a high-
er crime rate, irresponsible
drinking, and that its nega-
tive effects would far out-
weigh the economic ben-,
efit, if any. Some argue that
the economy would actu-
ally suffer if sales of liquor
by the drink were allowed.
Some also cite overall mor-
al decline as a danger.
Anticipating. some of
those arguments, Alliance
members have assembled
an information sheet that
will be available on the
website to address some of
those .issues.

Search narrows for Fla.



education commissioner


The Associated Press

SThe search for Florida's
next education commis-
sioner has narrowed to
about a half dozen pdten-
tial candidates, though it
remains to be seen wheth-
er recruiters will be able to
lure them from top jobs to
'tackle one of the country's
largest school systems.
At a Board of Education
meeting Tuesday, .recruit-
ers said they had identified
and spoken with about six
candidates who they be-
lieve could significantly
advance education in Flor-
ida. They did not provide
names, but said the candi-
dates include current su-
perintendents, corporate
leaders, and government
appointments in their
respective states.
Encouraging the can-
didates to apply is -com-
plicated by a number of
challenges, including the
Florida sunshine laws, un-
der which all applications
are public. William Adams,
regional search associ-
ate for the headhunting
firm Ray and Associates,
said some candidates may
wait to the last minute
to expose themselves, or
are convinced they'd be a
good fit.
The firm has not received


"Florida is not broken
like a lot of states in
terms of education. That
makes our job even more
difficult"
William Adams,
Ray and Associates



many applications, but Ad-
ams stressed that they are
more concerned about the
quality of the candidates
than quantity.
"We are going to contin-
ue to push those people to
apply," Adams said.
SWhoever steps into the
role will have big shoes to
fill: Outgoing Commission-
er Eric Smith has become a
'national leader in educa-
tion reform and under his
tenure, the state jumped
ahead in education rank-
ings and was named a
winner of the $4.35 billion
Race to the Top competi-
tion. The state is currently
pursuing a number of re-
forms, including changing
how teachers are evalu-
ated, increasing standards
and turning around failing
schools.
"Florida is not broken
like a lot of states in terms
of education," Adams told
the board. "That makes our


job even more difficult."
Smith will be leaving in
June. He has said he wants
to allow Gov. Rick Scott
the opportunity to select a
leader who will pursue his
education agenda.
Also at the meeting on
Tuesday, Frances Haith-
cock, chancellor of pub-
lic schools, provided .the
board with an update on
the state's Race to the Top
implementation. The state
was awarded $700 million
to pursue reforms that will
double the number of in-
coming high school fresh-
men who graduate .and go
on to college, and cut the
achievement gap in half by
2015.
Haithcock said they are
concentrating on four
areas: data systems; rig-
orous standards and as-
sessments; working with
struggling schools and
teacher quality. Sixty-four
of the state's 65 districts
have Race to the Top pro-
grams that have been ap-
proved. The next impor-
tant deadline will be June
1, when districts must sub-
mit plans on the teacher
evaluation system they
will develop. Fifty percent
must be based on student
growth, but she said the
other 50 percent has "lots
of flexibility."


Smith and Haithcock
noted that Race to the Top
has basically been a means
to fund reforms that they
had planned to implement
long beforehand.
"We got funding through
Race to the Top, but never
did anything radically dif-
ferent than what we were
going to do," Smith said.'
"This is Florida's plan."
Smith highlighted sever-
al pieces of legislation that
have recently been passed,
including a teacher evalu-
ation bill that will do away
with tenure for new teach-
ers and create an evalu-
ation system that will be
based largely on how much
students improve on stan-
dardized tests.
"This is a game changer,"
Smith said.
Noting it was Smith's last
board meeting as commis-
sioner, the board presented
him with a resolution ac-
knowledging his achieve-
ments as commissioner.
Thanking the board, Smith
recalled a brief letter he'd
received prior to starting
the job from former chair-
man T. Willard Fair, stating
that he was there to "serve
the 2.7 million children of
the state of Florida."
"I've done that happily
and hopefully productive-
ly," he said.


Panel OKs rule for 2005 Fla. insurance claims


The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE A
panel chaired by Gov. Rick
Scott has agreed to file an
emergency rule giving the
Florida Hurricane Catas-
trophe Fund more time
to respond to an influx of


claims from 2005 storms.
The filing approved
Tuesday would let the
State Board of Administra-
tion waive a 60-day dead-
line for acting on claims
forwarded from the states
67 property insurance
companies.


The so-called "cat fund"
provides backup coverage
if claims exceed a compa-
ny's ability to pay them.
The board's executive di-
rector, Ash Williams, said
an' unusually large num-
ber of claims were filed for
2005 storms shortly before


the five-year deadline.
Williams said most were
from Hurricane Wilma
and a large number are for
condominiums.
Other board members
are Chief Financial Officer
Jeff Atwater and Attorney
General Pam Bondi.

One dies, two


hurt in wreck


From staff reports

One person died of
their injuries, another
was seriously injured,
and a third suffered mi-
nor injuries early Tues-
day morning when a
semi rear-ended a van
pulling a car behind it.
According to a Florida
Highway Patrol report,
the accident occurred on
Interstate 10 in Washing-
ton County around 5:10
a.m.
Troopers say a 2006
Ford E-350 van driven by
58-year-old George Mira,
of Bradenton, was head-
ing west, pulling a 1991
Mazda near mile marker
118, when the driver of a
2005 International B500
ran into the rear of Mi-
ra's vehicles. The report
stated the accident hap-
pened because the semi
driver "failed to observe
the closing rate" between


his vehicle and the van.
The impact caused the
van to enter the north
shoulder of the road
and hit a tree. The Inter-
national traveled onto
the shoulder and over-
turned. The driver of the
semi was identified .as
27-year-old Travis Mc-
Coy of Ochlocknee, Ga.
Washington County
EMS took both drivers to
Northwest Florida Com-
munity Hospital.
A passenger in the van,
52-year-old Gayle Mira,
also of Bradenton, was
life-flighted to Southeast
Alabama Medical Center.
She was in critical con-
dition, and succumbed
to her injuries shortly
after 10 a.m. at the hos-
pital, according to the
highway patrol. George
Mira was listed in serious
condition.
McCoy was listed as
having minor injuries.

bin Laden



Raiders knew mission a one-shot deal


The Associated Press

WASHINGTON Those
who planned the secret
mission to get Osama bin
Laden in Pakistan knew
it was a one-shot deal,
and it nearly went terribly
wrong.
The U.S. deliberately hid
the operation from Paki-
stan, and predicted that
national outrage over the
breach of Pakistani sover-
eignty would make it im-
possible to try again if the
raid on bin Laden's sus-
pected redoubt came up
dry.
Once the raiders reached
their target, things started
to go awry almost imme-
diately, officials briefed on
the operation said.
Adding exclusive new
details to the account of
the assault on bin Laden's
hideout, officials described
just how the SEAL raid-
ers loudly ditched a foun-
dering helicopter right
outside bin Laden's door,
ruining the plan for a sur-
prise assault. That forced
them to abandon plans to
run a squeeze play on bin
Laden simultaneously
entering the house stealth-
ily from the roof and the
ground floor.
Instead, they busted into
the ground floor and began


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE

U.S. officials briefed on the secret mission to get Osama bin, Laden in Pakistan say the raid's
planners knew it was a one-shot deal.


a floor-by-floor storming
of the house, working up
to the top level where they
h4d assumed bin Laden
- if he was in the house
- would be.
They were right.
The raiders came face-
to-face with bin Laden
in .a hallway outside his-
bedroom, and three of the
Americans stormed in after
him, U.S. officials briefed
on the operation told The
Associated Press. The of-
ficials spoke on condition
of anonymity to describe a
classified operation.
U.S. officials believe
Pakistafli intelligence con-
tinues to support militants


who attack U.S. troops in
Afghanistan, and actively
undermine U.S. intel-
ligence operations to go
after al-Qaida inside Paki-
stan. The level of distrust
is such that keeping Paki-
stan in the-dark was a ma-
jor factor in planning the
raid, and .led to using the
high-tech .but sometimes
unpredictable helicopter
technology that nearly un-
hinged the mission.
Pakistan's government
has since condemned the
action, and threatened to
open fire if U.S. forces en-
ter again.
On Monday, the two
partners attempted to


patch up relations,#agree-
ing to pursue high-value
targets jointly.
The decision to launch
on that particular moon-
less night in May came
largely because too many
American officials had
been briefed on the plan.
U.S. officials feared if it
leaked to the press, bin
Laden would disappear for
another decade.
U.S. special operations
forces have made approxi-
mately four forays into
Pakistani territory since
the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks,
though this one, some
90 miles inside Pakistan,
was unlike any other, the


officials say.
The job was given to a
SEAL Team 6 unit, just back
from Afghanistan, one offi-
cial said. This elite branch
of SEALs had been hunting
bin. Laden in eastern Af-
ghanistan since 2001.
Five aircraft flew from
Jalalabad, Afghanistan,
with three school-bus-
size Chinook helicopters
landing in a deserted area
roughly two-thirds of the
way to bin Laden's com-
pound in the Pakistani city
of Abbottabad, two of the
officials explained.
Aboard two Black Hawk
helicopters were 23 .SEALs,
an interpreter and a track-
ing dog named Cairo.
Nineteen SEALs would
enter the compound, and
, three of them would find
bin Laden, -one official
said, providing the exact


numbers for the first time.
Aboard the Chinooks
were two dozen more
SEALs, as backup.
The Black Hawks were
specially engineered to
muffle the tail rotor and
engine sound, two officials
said. The added weight
of the stealth technology
meant cargo was calcu-
lated to the ounce, with
weather factored in..The
night of the mission,.it was
hotter than expected.
The Black Hawks were to
drop the SEALs and depart
in less than two minutes,
in hopes locals would as-
sume they were Pakistani
aircraft visiting the nearby
military academy.
One Black Hawk was
to hover above the com-
pound, with SEALs sliding
down ropes into the open
courtyard.


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich speaks at the Kiwanis Club luncheon, Monday, in
Dubuque, Iowa.

Gingrich urges talk about failings


The Associated Press

DUBUQUE, Iowa Re-
publican presidential
hopeful Newt Gingrich says
he has sought God's for-
giveness for his personal
failings and hopes that
evangelical voters take time
to talk to him about his two
divorces and his affair with
the woman who is now his
third wife.
His chances of winning
the nomination of a party
dominated by religious
conservatives may depend:
on it.
"I think people have to
look at me, ask tough ques-
tions, then render judg-
ment," the former House
speaker told The Associated
Press on Monday during his
first Iowa trip as a declared
presidential candidate. "I
have made mistakes in my
life. I have had to go to God
to ask for forgiveness and
seek reconciliation."
"It would be easier in life
to skip all this," he added.
"But if citizenship requires
these kinds of conversa-
tions, these conversations
are worth having."
If enough of Iowa's reli-
gious conservatives hear
Gingrich out, and decide
his repentance is authentic,
they could boost his chanc-
es of competing past the
first few primary contests.
But if Iowa's Republican
values voters, who form
the backbone of the leadoff
nominating caucuses, re-
ject Gingrich because of his
history of personal flaws,
his bid for political redemp-
tion could be cut short.
"He may be able to build
that bridge with enough
people, but it's not clear
whether he will have them,"
said Bob Vander Plaats, a
former candidate for gov-
ernor who runs a socially
conservative advocacy
group. "If he can get people
past his personal past, he
has a shot. If they get hung
up on it, he doesn't have a
Shott"


While every candidate in
the GOP field has a policy
issue or personality trait
that doesn't sit well with
conservatives, Gingrich's
flaws may be most in con-
flict with the family values
espoused by many Re-
publicans in Iowa, where
evangelical Christians are
a particularly powerful
plurality.
Unlike some of his rivals,
Gingrich has made clear
that, despite the obstacles
presented by his personal
failings, he'll play Iowa
hard and seek to win the
caucuses in hopes of get-
ting enough momentum
to win the New Hampshire
and South Carolina pri-
maries, the latter of which
also is dominated by reli-
gious Republicans.
In the AP interview just
days after launching a can-
didacy, Gingrich said he is
expecting to have hun-
dreds of conversations in
Iowa about his past, start-
ing this week as he travels
deep into the state's Re-
.publican territory.
A recent convert to Ca-
tholicism, he began a 17-
city visit on Monday in
Dubuque, a working-class
eastern Iowa city filled
with Catholics.
Iowa's politically astute
GOP electorate doesn't
usually shirk from asking
politicians tough ques-
tions. Gingrich has ac-
knowledged having an
extramarital affair with a
congressional aide, now
his third wife, while mar-
ried to his second wife
- at the same time he was
criticizing President Bill
Clinton for his relationship
with White House intern
Monica Lewinsky.
Even before announc-
ing his campaign last.
week, Gingrich had been
trying to break through
in Iowa with a message
of contrition, but leaders
in the state's evangelical
movement say it's un-
clear whether that pitch is


catching on. Gingrich also
has visited Iowa with his
wife of more than a de-
cade, Callista, at his side
to send a message that he
is a family man commit-
ted to his marriage.

Rotary put up five
runs in the bottom of
the sixth inning to take
a dramatic 6-5 victory
over Farm Bureau in
Dixie O'Zone League
action on Monday night
at Optimist Park.
Farm Bureau led from
the start, scoring three
runs in the first inning,
and taking a 5-1 edge
with two more runs in
the fourth inning. .
Rotary saved its best
for last in the bottom of
the fifth, coming up with
a pair of big RBI hits,
and taking advantage


of a costly Farm Bureau
defensive miscue.
Kiley Bryan led off the
inning with a single. A
high fly ball by Cody
Gwinn was dropped at
third base, allowing Bry-
an to reach third, and
Gwinn to take second.
That set-up a two-RBI
triple to right field by
Austin Livingston to
trim the margin to two
runs at 5-3.

stole second base, Cart-
er Cass delivered a two-
RBI double to left field
to score Livingston and
Kelly, tying the game at


5-5.
Cass stole thirdbase to

one station away from
home, but Farm Bureau
starter Logan Benefield
struck out Travis Morse
for the first out of the
inning.
Chance Keith then hit
an RBI groundout to
third base to score Cass
for the game-winning
run.
Cass also got the win
for Rotary, coming on
in relief in the top of the
fifth inning, and record-
ing a scoreless frame.
Farm Bureau was able
to load the bases in that


inning with a two-out
rally, thanks to a single
by Elliott Hollon and
walks to Andrew Fender
and Joey Myhill. Cass
got Bryson Bryant to
ground out to second
base to strand all three
runners.
Gwinn started the
game on the mound
for Rotary, but Farm'

SLewis throws no-hitter in Zaxby's win
-BY SewisAtADER


BYSHELIAMADER
Floridan Correspondent
Optimist Park was
alive with baseball and
softball action Mon-
day evening, but none
more exciting than the
no-hitter thrown by
Zaxby's pitchers Bobby
Lewis and Maxx Harrell
to hand the Lions a 7-0
loss.
Lewis got the start on
the mound and went
three innings, with a
walk being the only
base-runner allowed,
while striking out four.
Harrell came on for
the final two innings
and struck out four, also
allowing just one base-
runner on a walk.


Cameron Gray went
the distance for the Li-
ons, giving "up seven
runs on six hits and four
walks, while fanning
eight.
In the top of the first
inning, Lewis drew a
one-out walk and stole
second to set the stage
for Harrell's RBI single.
Following a steal of sec-
ond, Harrell took third
on a single by Landon
Tharpe. With two outs,
Pender Johnson tripled
home both runners.
Will Johnsofi drew
'a walk and stole sec-
ond, putting runners in
scoring position. Da-
mien Goodman made
the steal pay off with a


two-RBI double, before
a groundout back to
the pitcher ended the
inning with Zaxby's up
5-0.
The Lions had their
first base-runner in the
bottom of the second.
Lane Hicks had a'two-
out walk, then stole sec-
ond and third, but was
left stranded when the
next batter went down
on strikes.
In the top of the
fourth inning, Harrell
singled, stole second,
and scored on a RBI
double by Ryan Reed
with two outs. Johnson
drew a walk and Reed
took advantage of an
errant throw on a pick


off to get Johnson, who
took second on the
throw, and took third on
a passed ball.
Johnson was out on
an attempted steal of
home to end the inning
with Zaxby's leading
7-0.
Harrell came on to
retire the side in the
bottom of the fourth in-
ning. In the top of the
fifth inning, Gray retired
the side in order.
The Lions' second
base-runner came in
the bottom of the inning
with a one-out walk to
Gray, who stole second,
but was out on an at-
tempted steal of third
on a throw by Tharpe. L

Preakness





Nehro bows out,




maximum field




still expected


The Associated Press

BALTIMORE-Therewill
be no rematch between
Animal Kingdom and
Nehro at the Preakness.
Nehro, who finished sec-
ond in the Kentucky Derby
behind Animal Kingdom,
will skip Saturday's second
leg of the Triple Crown and
be pointed toward next
month's Belmont.
Nehro's owner, Ahmed
Zayat, said Tuesday the
decision was based on
the horse's hectic spring
schedule. Although Nehro
emerged well from the Der-
by, the Preakness would
have been his fourth race
in the past two months.
Despite Nehro's absence,
the race is expected to at-
tract the maximum 14
horses only the third
time since 1991 that 14
horses have run in the
Preakness.
Animal Kingdom trainer
Graham Motion will enter
Wednesday's draw with
more concern about his
horse's post position than
the credentials of the oth-
er entrants. After starting
from the No. 16 post at
Churchill Downs, Animal
Kirigdom rallied to beat
Nehro by 2% lengths.
Motion wants no part of
the Preakness rail.
"I'd rather not be stuck
on the inside, very much
like the Derby," Motion
said. "It's 14 horses instead
of 20, but it's still a large
field so he's going to have
to navigate traffic. He's
not looking obviously (to
be) on the pace. I'd much
rather be on the middle to
outside."
No matter where Animal
Kingdom begins, he won't
have to worry about Nehro
at the finish.
"It was a hard decision
for Mr. Zayat to make,"
Bradley Weisbord, rac-
ing and finance manager
for owner Zayat Stables



A, W.AWfiJ


LLC, said in Louisville, Ky.
"Four races in eight weeks
seemed like a lot to ask. For
any top race horse, that's a
lot of running in this day
.and age."
Before competing in the
Derby, Nehro was second
in the Louisiana Derby
on March 26 and second
in the Arkansas Derby on
April 16.
Weisbord expects Nehro
to continue to train at
Churchill Downs before
moving to Belmont in the
next couple weeks.
Weisbord said the long-
term goal for the son of
Mineshaft with be North
America's richest race, the
$5 million Breeders' Cup
Classic on Nov. 5, contest-
ed at the same distance
and on the same track as
the Kentucky Derby.
With Nehro out, Isn't
He Perfect moves into
position to join the start-
ing field. Isn't He Perfect
.has amassed more 'than
$90,000 in earnings but
hasn't finished in the mon-
ey in three stakes races this
year.
It will be the first Triple
Crown race for trainerDoo-
dnauth Shivmangal, who
is from Guyana and based
in New York. Shivmangal
wasn't assured a spot until
Nehro dropped out.
"I'm more than happy to
be in the race," Shivman-
gal said. "I can't tell you
how good it felt."
Saratoga Red, trained by
D. Wayne Lukas, needs an-
other horse to drop out to
make the Preakness field. If
that doesn't happen, Sara-
toga Red probably will run
in Saturday's undercard.
The stakes barn at Pim-
lico was virtually empty
Tuesday. Seven horses are
expected to arrive Wednes-
day, but" it remains likely
that Animal Kingdom
will be shipped Saturday
morning from the Fair Hill
Training Center in Elkton.


SUSta E LU rntPRE FILL
Nehro at Churchill Downs, in Louisville, Ky. Kentucky Derby
runner-up Nehro will not run in the Preakness. Nehro has en-
dured a busy schedule this spring, and owner Ahmed Zayat
says he doesn't want to risk running the horse in Saturday's
second leg of the Triple Crown.

Dear Annie: How can I help a friend who
is convinced his neighbors are bombard-
ing his house with rays that have affected
his health and caused the death of one of
his dogs?
"Edwin" is a retired engineer in his
early 70s, divorced for 10 years. When
my husband was ill, Edwin was the only
co-worker who bothered to visit. In the
15 years since my husband passed away,
I'd lost track of Edwin until he showed
up at my door six months ago, haggard
and disheveled. He then told me of all
the strange things that had been happen-
ing the rays that caused him to suffer
abdominal pain and drove his dogs to
whimper and hide under tables. He said
the dogs refuse to drink the tap water,
and when he showers, his skin burns.
In an effort to protect himself and his
dogs, he has papered his walls with alu-
minum foil and put plastic and newspa-
per on the carpet so the dogs can relieve
themselves indoors.
Edwin has called the police a number
of times, asking them to check for rays


Bridge
When declarer is in a suit contract, success
may depend upon retaining trump control. In
this deal, South is in five hearts. West leads the
club ace and continues with the club king. Af-
ter ruffing in the dummy, how should declarer
plan the play?
North's four no-trump was Blackwood, a big W
overbid. Better would have been four clubs, a 4
splinter bid showing four-card heart support,
game values and a singleton (or void) in clubs. 4
South would have signed off in four hearts, and 4
North could have passed. The original declarer
cashed dummy's heart ace at trick three, then
led another trump. But when East played low,
South had lost trump control. If he led a third
round, East would win with his king and play
a club, forcing out declarer's final heart while
East still had one trump left.
In case trumps were 4-1, declarer should have
led a low heart from the board at trick three. If
he wins the trick, he continues with another
heart, playing low from the board. If East ducks,
declarer leads a heart to dummy's ace and runs
the diamonds. East may trump in whenever
he pleases. Or, if East takes his heart king and
plays a club, South ruffs with dummy's heart
ace, plays a diamond to his jack, draws East's
two trumps, and claims.


emanating from neighboring homes,
but of course, they labeled him a crank.
The last time he called, he was put in
handcuffs and taken to a mental health
facility for two weeks. He said they gave
him drugs that made him nauseated
and confused. Edwin's stepson refuses
. to help, and his ex-wife lives in another
, state. If were to tell Edwin that he's suf-
fering from severe paranoia, he'd think I
joined the ranks of his tormentors. Please
tell me how to help. --WANT TO MAKE
THINGS RIGHT

Dear Want Start from a place of reality.
Edwin has abdominal pains. Regardless
of the cause, he should seek medical
attention. Call the National Alliance on
Mental Illness (nami.org) at 1-800-950-
NAMI (1-800-950-6264) and ask for a re-
ferral. Perhaps you could offer to go with
him to see a doctor. And it is possible
there is some environmental contamina-
tion that is causing Edwin's problems. Try
the Environmental Protection Agency
(epa.gov).

British queen makes historic trip to Ireland


The Associated Press

DUBLIN Sometimes words
aren't necessary. That was the
case Tuesday when Queen Eliza-
beth II placed a wreath in Dub-
lin's Garden of Remembrance to
honor the Irish rebels who lost
their lives fighting for. freedom
- from Britain.
The queen became the first
British monarch to set foot in
Dublin for a century. Her four-
day visit is designed to show that
the bitter emnity of Ireland's war
of independence 90 years ago
has been replaced by Anglo,
Irish friendship, and that, peace
has become irreversible in the
neighboring British territory of
Northern Ireland.
The ceremony under threaten-
ing steel-gray skies was simple
and direct, its meaning clear.
There were no apologies, no
acknowledgement of misdeeds,


but the presence of the British
monarch on ground that is sa-
cred to many Irish was a power-
ful statement of a desire to start
anew.
Helicopters and fixed-wing
aircraft patrolled the skies, and
marksmen kept watch on roof-
tops during the ceremony for
any attempt by Ireland's most
extreme nationalists to disrupt
the event.
A few hundred supporters of
Irish Republican Army dissident
groups did clash with police on
the security perimeter, and sev-
eral were arrested, but the trou-
ble didn't interrupt the queen's
carefully choreographed proces-
sion through Dublin.
Nor did the dissidents' efforts
overnight to draw attention to
themselves by planting a pipe
bomb in a bus 15 miles (25 kilo-
meters) away from Dublin and
three hoax devices in the city


itself.
As the queen stood in silence
alongside Irish President Mary
McAleese, a flock of black bal-
loons floated off in the distance,
a silent protest by the nationalist
Sinn Fein party.
But the event marked a suc-
cessful first day of the queen's
groundbreaking four-day visit
to Ireland, a trip aimed at dem-
onstrating that the former foes
have reconciled their differences
amid strong ties of culture and
immigration, common econom-
ic interests, and a joint desire to
bury the painful past.
Mary Daly, a historian and di-
rector of the College of Arts and
Celtic Studies at University Col-
lege Dublin, said the queen's ges-
ture.will be widely understood in
Ireland.
"It's not uncommon for a head
of state to lay a wreath at a site
of mourning, but in this case you

China


Pakistan's Gilani visits China amid US rift


The Associated Press

BEIJING Pakistani
Prime Minister Yousuf
Raza Gilani began a visit
to China on Tuesday with
his country's old ally look-
ing more attractive after
the U.S. killing of Osama
bin Laden further strained
Islamabad's ties with
Washington.
The sentiment is mutu-
al, with China now in the
process of shoring up its
relations with Islamabad,
Afghanistan and several
other Central Asia states
in step with an expected
diminished U.S. presence
as it winds down military
operations in Afghanistan.
For Pakistan, Beijing
represents an uncritical
friend ready to provide
aid, investment and mili-
tary assistance.
To the leaders in Beijing,
ties with Pakistan and oth-
er countries in its neigh-,
borhood offer a bigger
diplomatic footprint, bet-
ter access to resources and
a larger stable of allies to
challenge U.S. supremacy.
"Pakistan wants to give a
show that it is an indepen-
dent actor and has options,
and China offers a model
of a functioning non-dem-
ocratic state," said Indiana
University China scholar
Elliot Sperling.
Gilani arrived in Shang-
hai on Tuesday evening,
the official Xinhua News
Agency reported.
Although Gilani's four-
day visit was planned
well in advance, it comes
at a critical time for his
country's relations with
the U.S., which have been
thrown into crisis over the
American raid that killed
bin Laden in the northern
Pakistani city of Abbot-
tabad on May 2. Pakistan
has called it a violation of
its sovereignty and threat-
ened to retaliate if there
are any similar operations
in the future.
While American politi-
cians served up withering
criticisms of Pakistan's
failure to find bin Laden's
Jhide-out or the pos-


Pakistan's National Assembly, Pakistani Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani addresses the
Parliament in Islamabad, Pakistan. Islamabad still angry over the U.S. raid that killed Osama
bin Laden, Pakistani lawmakers demand an end to U.S. drone strikes against Islamic militants.


sibility that officials were
protecting him China
offered welcome reassur-
ance, praising Pakistan as
resolute in the fight against
terrorism.
Gilani made Pakistan's
appreciation clear, singling
out China in a testy May 9
speech to parliament as
Islamabad's "all-weather
friend."
China-Pakistan ties were
forged shortly after the
founding of the People's
Republic in 1949 and have
thrived in part on both
countries' distrust of their
mutual neighbor India.
Gilani's visit is formally
pitched as part of celebra-
tions of the 60th anniver-
sary of diplomatic ties, and
he is scheduled to meet
with top Chinese leaders
and oversee the signing of
a series of agreements be-
ginning Wednesday.
"Further consolidating
and developing our friend-
ship and cooperation is
the common aspiration of
the two peoples," Chinese
Foreign Ministry spokes-
woman Jiang Yu said at a
regularly scheduled news
briefing Tuesday.
Along with billions of
dollars in investment -
up to $30 billion over the
next five years, according
to agreements signed last
year China supports
Pakistan's nuclear power
industry and sells it mili-
tary hardware, including
surface-to-air missiles,
navy frigates and fighter
jets.


China for its part receives
strong diplomatic backing
from Pakistan in the. re-
gion and among Islamic
nations -who might oth-
erwise be more critical of
China's repressive policies
toward its Muslim Uighur
minority.
Among other benefits:
Pakistani officials have
suggested they might offer
Chinese experts a chance
to examine the wreckage
of a sophisticated U.S. he-
licopter that crashed dur-
ing the operation to take
out bin Laden.
Strong Pakistan ties also
help anchor China's im-
proving relations with oth-
er countries in the region.


A visit by Afghan Foreign
Minister Zalmay Rasoul
this month put a fresh
sheen on bilateral rela-
tions at a time when the
reduction in U.S. troop
.strength is expected to
open up space for other
countries to expand their
influence there.
Days earlier, Beijing had '
underscored its regional,
heft by hosting forces from
Kyrgyzstan and Tajiki-
stan for joint anti-terror-
ism drills in the western
Chinese region of Xinji-
ang, part of its embrace
of Central Asia through
.the Chinese and Russian-
dominated Shanghai Co-
operation Organization.

Guma El-Gamaty, London-
based spokesman for the Libyan
opposition's Interirii National
Council, said "all what we know
'is that Shukri Ghanem is in
Tunisia."
In Geneva, the U.N. refugee
agency said Tuesday that Libyan
authorities appeared to be en-
couraging African migrants to


years because of an agreement
between Libya and Italy.
Already some 14,000 people
-- mostly from sub-Saharan
Africa have used Libya as a
springboard to reach Europe,
and thousands more are poised
to make the treacherous sea
journey in the coming weeks as
weather conditions in the Medi-
terranean improve.
"The authorities (in Libya) are
not discouraging, at all, in fact
there may be signs that they are
encouraging these boat jour-
neys," she said..
