Fire sparked by lightning strike

destroys a Grand Ridge home

Marianna Bulldogs split
two games in Bristol
tourney. See more on
page IB.

Vol. 88 No. 117

A lightning strike is believed to be
responsible for a fire that destroyed
the home of a family on Sand Ridge
Church Road near Grand Ridge early
Friday evening.
Jeff and Cindy Smith Neel watched
in disbelief as smoke billowed from
the roof in the midst of a lighting

storm just after 6 p.m. In the midst
of the crisis, their minds turned to
their most precious possessions.
Cindy grabbed the family photos
and videotapes. Jeff made several
trips in and out of the house, grab-
bing a handful of clothes for each
family member each time. He also
snatched up the guitar 15-year-old
daughter Logan learned to play on.
He and some neighbors also

wheeled out the piano that Logan
and her 19-year-old bother, Justin,
play. The neighbors also helped Jeff
get a few chairs out. They made trips
in and out of the house until fire-
fighters arrived and ordered them to
stay out for their own safety.
Most of their belongings perished
in the fire, but the Neels are counting

New library director

ready for challenges


The newJackson County library
director starts work Wednesday '
but she came to Marianna .on
Monday for a meet-and-greet
with staff, Friends of the Library,.. :.
the library board and others in
the community.
Darby Syrkin holds a master's
degree in library and information
-scieniice from the Unliversity of
Texas at Austin and once served
as librarian for the University of
Houston library system and at
Tulane University.
Syrkin said she is excited about /,
the challenges ahead of her in
Jackson County.
"There are ample opportunities
for this library, and it's super-ex-
citing," Syrkin said. "We have an
opportunity to build a great orga-
iization to serve the community
well, in Marianna and Graceville,
in the whole county. The library .
staff, the board, the friends, the V
county commissioners and I plan
on working well together to make
the library of Jackson County as
progressive and responsive to
needs of the community as pos-
sible. Thereare a lot of elements "
there to work with and I'm look-
ing forward to getting in there
and getting started."
She had a formidable task
ahead when she took her most ..-
recent previous library position.
Syrkin was put in charge of de-
signing the library space at Flori-
da State University's Panama City
'After achieving that goal, she
worked as the first campus librar- . ,.
ian for six years. After that, she
took a two-year break to explore
running her own business, which
had nothing to do with libraries
or books. The library position in
Jackson County enticed her back
into 'the field, she said.

files suit
Says sheriff, state attorney
wrong; it's not 'gambling'
A business has sued Jackson County
Sheriff Lou Roberts and State Attorney
Glen Hess over their attempts to shut its
operations down.
The company, Specialized Games
LLC, asserts that it offers customers a
legitimate service and entertainment in
a program which involves selling high-
speed Internet access and offering elec-
tronic sweepstakes on cards, customers
can obtain.
Roberts and Hess, on the other hand,
say they believe the activities constitute
illegal gambling.
Specialized Games LLC is asking Judge
John Fishel to issue temporary injunc-
tions and other orders that would pre-
vent Roberts and Hess from arresting pr,
threatening to arrest employees, owners
or customers involved in the business,
and from confiscating or threatening to
confiscate equipment or shut the shops
It also asks that the two be prevented
from characterizing their businesses as
illegal gambling rooms or using similar
terms to describe them.
Although Roberts has not arrested
anyone associated with this operation,
he and Hess have warned at least one
business which uses the system that
they feel it is illegal and that they are
pursuing further investigations. That
site is stillin operation.
Roberts has shut, down what he de-
scribed as similar operations in at least
three locations before, however.
Customers can buy Internet time and
obtain sweepstakes entries on a mag-
netized card along with the transaction.
The company also gives sweepstakes

Chipola has lowest withdrawal rate in state

Special to the Floridan

According to statewide
data, Chipola College has
the lowest course with-
drawal rate among col-
leges in the state college
The report, released in
March, shows that only 6.3
percent of Chipola's stu-
dents withdrew from a set
of monitored classes in the
last three years, compared
to the state average of 11.3
According to the report,
the analysis was under-
taken because when stu-
dents fail to complete a
course, it costs the student
and the state money, re-
duces available classroom
space, and increases the
length of time required for
the student to graduate.
While many withdrawals

are necessary for personal
and academic reasons, ex-
cessive withdrawals pose a
significant burden on the
student, the college and
the state.
The data used for the
analysis included all col-
lege preparatory and col-
lege credit courses offered
from 2007-2008 to 2009-
2010 in the state of Florida.
There were 3,157 courses
with 6,608,926 enroll-
ments. The list of courses
was then limited to those
with at least 3,000 course
enrollments system-wide.
This reduced the num-
ber of courses to 213 of
the most commonly of-
fered courses, represent-
ing 89 percent of course
enrollments in all 28 col-
leges. The data focused on
courses with high with-
drawal percentages since

they represent the classes
which students struggle to
Between 2007-2008 and
2009-2010, there were
668,850 withdrawals, rep-
resenting 11.3 percent of
the total course enroll-
ments. Chipola College
had the lowest percentage
at 6.3 percent.
The report also included
the five courses with the
highest percentage of with-
drawals at each college.
The five courses with the
highest withdrawal rates
at Chipola are Anatomy
and Physiology I, Elemen-
tary Spanish I, Calculus
with Analytic Geometry II,
Chemistry and Introduc-
tion to Earth Science.
Data from the study
was published in Chipola
FACTS, a monthly fact-
sheet produced jointly by

Jackson Hospital welcomes FSU medical students

Special to the Floridan

Jackson Hospital has
served as a Rural Training
Site for the Florida State
University College of Med-
icine, Tallahassee, since
2002. The Hospital's rela-
tionship with FSU enables
it to train first- and third-
year medical students.
First-year students are
in the community and
hospital for a three-week
immersion experience
concluding their first year
of medical school. Third-
year students spend their
entire year in Marianna.
The students live in the
community and become
part of the medical staff in
a clerkship capacity. They
rotate through training
with the Hospital's active

staff physicians practicing
family medicine, internal
medicine, general surgery,
obstetrics/gynecology, or-
thopedics and pediatrics.
The medical staff at
Florida State Hospital in
Chattahoochee and theVA
CBOC provides psychiatry
rotations for the students.

Teachers union sues over pension plan changes

The Associated Press

ida's statewide teachers
union is taking the lead in a
lawsuit that seeks to block
a requirement for teachers,
state workers and many lo-
cal government employees
to contribute 3 percent of
their pay to the state pen-
sion fund.
The suit filed Monday
also challenges aphase-out
of cost-of-living increases
in retirement benefits.
The Florida Education
Association filed the class
action on behalf of 11
government workers rep-
resenting several unions
-in state circuit court here
against what FEA Presi-
dent Andy Ford called "es-
sentially an income tax" on
public employees.
Two other unions later
filed motions to intervene.
The Florida Police Benevo-
lent Association has asked
to add two members, an
Orange County sheriff's
deputy and a state correc-
tional officer.
The Florida Public Ser-
vices Union, part of the
Service Employees Inter-
national Union, wants to
add four members.
They include Palm

Beach County School Dis-
trict maintenance .worker
Bobby Mcghee, who said
he took his job with the
understanding it included
a district-paid paid retire-
ment plan.
"By showing up to work
every day and doing every-
thing I'm asked, I have held
up my end of the agree-
ment," Mcghee said. "Now
they are trying to change
the rules in the middle
of the game so they don't
have to uphold theirs."
The Florida Retirement
System covers 655,000 ac-
tive employees and pro-
vides benefits to 219,000
The suit alleges the con-
tribution requirement and
benefit .reduction violate
existing public employ-.
ees' contract rights that
date back to a law passed
in 1974 and which are
guaranteed by the Florida
"We believe that a prom-
ise is a promise and the
state of Florida should
abide by promises it
makes," Ford said.
The suit, though, doesn't
challenge the state's abil-
ity to impose the changes
on workers hired after the
new pension law goes into

"Floridians who don't work in government
are required to pay into their own
retirement. This is aboutfairness for those
who don't have government jobs."

effect on July 1.
It also alleges the law vio-
lates a state constitutional
provision that guarantees
employees the right to
bargain collectively. The
Legislature passed the law
without negotiating with
public employee unions.
Gov. Rick Scott, who had
sought an even larger 5
percent contribution, said
he was confident the law
will stand up in court.
"Asking state employees
to pay a small percent-
age into their pensions is
common sense," the Re-
publican governor said in
a statement. "Floridians
who don't work in govern-
ment are required to pay
into their own retirement.
This is about fairness for
those who don't havA gov-
ernment jobs. Plus, we are
ensuring a pension will be
there for state employees
when they retire."

Gov. Rick Scott

The suit, though, won
applause from Florida
House Democratic Leader
Ron Saunders of Key West.
He said House Democrats
"fought this unconsti-
tutional attempt to bal-
ance the state budget on
the backs of our public
servants." -
The employee contri-
butions won't be used to
strengthen the pension
plan, which is rated-as one
of the nation's best-fund-
ed. Instead, they will be
offset by equal reductions
in employer contributions.
That's expected to save
the state and local govern-
ments $1.2 billion the first
At least one public
employer in Pensacola,
though, is not taking the
savings. Escambia County
is giving its employees a 3.1
percent pay raise to offset
the pension contributions
The suit was filed on be-

half of two teachers from
Hillsborough and Co-
lumbia counties, a pair of
school maintenance work-
ers from Leon and Madi-
son counties,, two Santa
Rosa County sheriff's dep-
uties, a Hillsborough Com-
munity College staffer, a
Hillsborough County solid
waste worker and three
employees of the Jackson
Health System in Miami-
Dade County.
The plaintiffs are mem-
bers of FEA, local teach-
ers unions, the Fraternal
Order of Police, the AFL-
CIO, American Federa-
tion of State, County and
Municipal Employees and
the Service Employees In-
ternational Union-Health
Care Florida Local 1991.
The suit names Scott as
a defendant along with At-
torney General Pam Bondi
and Chief Financial Officer
Jeff Atwater, all members
of the State Board of Ad-
ministration, as well as De-
partment of Management
Services Secretary John
Miles. The board oversees
pension fund investments
and Miles administers the
FEA lawyer Ron Meyer
said he expects the case to,
wind up in the Florida Su-

preme Court regardless of
how it's decided at the trial
court level.
The plaintiffs have asked
Circuit Judge Jackie Ful-
ford to order that the state
set aside the employee
contributions in an inter-
est-bearing account until
the issue is resolved. The
employees then could be
reimbursed with interest if
they ultimately win.
The suit is the first of
what may be several by the
teachers union challeng-
ing what Ford called "reck-
less legislation that was
dreamed up by legislative
leaders and heartily en-
dorsed by our governor."
Meyer said "it would
be a fair statement to say
we will be litigating" por-
tions of a new law affect-
ing teacher pay and work
conditions. It sets up a
merit pay system- based
heavily on how much each
teacher's students improve
on standardized tests and
eliminates tenure for new
Ford said the Republi-
can-controlled Legislature
made "the state of Florida
a colder and harsher state"
by passing such laws in-
stead of trying to fix the
state's economy.

Critics bash new

redistricting process

The Associated Press

gerrymandering advocates
used the Republican-con-
trolled Florida Legislature's
first public meeting on re-
districting Monday to say
what they think's wrong
with the process.
They argued that law-
makers should draw up
proposed maps for legis-
lative and congressional
districts first and then get
public comment on how
they might be changed.
Lawmakers don't plan on
drawing maps until after
they hold public meetings
through Sept. 1 in 25 more
cities and towns.
"Where are the maps?"
asked American Civil Lib-
erties Union regional direc-
tor Susan Watson. "Make
a map now, present it to
the public now and start
a meaningful conversa-
tion. ... We don't want fake
hearings and meaningless
Lawmakers didn't imme-
diately respond because
legislative leaders have
ordered them not to com-
ment during the meetings,
but they defended their
procedures later at a news
"Are you going to be able
to talk to us?" Tallahassee
resident Bob Fulford asked
during the meeting.
After a brief silence,
House Redistricting Chair-
man Will Weatherford,
R-Wesley'Chapel, said he
would respond only after
Fulford finished his com-
ments including an ob-
servation that present dis-
tricts "look like the original
"There is no gag order,"
Weatherford. then said.
"This is a listening tour."
Lawmakers broke their
silence only once more
during the meeting when
Sen. Rene Garcia,-. R-Hia-
leah, insisted on defending
the honor of Miami-Dade
County after a woman
said she left there because
"That is not my country
Weatherford and his Sen-
ate counterpart, though,
had plenty to say to report-
ers after the meeting in-
cluding a response to sev-
eral critics who had urged
them to speed up the re-
districting process.
They included Deidre
Macnab, president of the
Florida League of Women
Voters. She said it appears
the Legislature won't fin-
ish its work until March,
leaving little time for legal
challenges and a federal
Justice Department review
before candidates begin
_qualifying next June.

"Florida deserves elec-
tions 'where the people
have time to understand
their choices," Macnab
said. "This timeline only
benefits incumbents."
Sen. Don Gaetz, R-Nicev-
ille, later said it's not nec-
essarily true lawmakers
won't vote until February
or March. He said there's
no reason they won't
vote sooner at least in
Gaetz said the public will
have a chance to comment
on the maps at meetings
in Tallahassee before they
go to a vote although law-
makers may not take their
show on the road again.
"We live in the internet
age," Gaetz said. "You don't
have to get.in a car and
drive across town or across
the state to participate."
The two redistricting
leaders noted the public
can comment at any time
arid citizens even can sub-
mit their own maps on the
Legislature's redistricting
Fort Walton Beach tea
party activist Henry Kelly
was one of the few speak-
ers who defended the Leg-
islature's approach, saying
he's "glad to start with a
blank slate."
Macnab also urged law-
makers to drop their code
of silence and stop using
taxpayer money to fight a
pair of state constitutional
amendments on .legisla-
tive and congressional re-
districting that voters ad-
opted last year. The House
has joined two members of
Congress in a court chal-
lenge to the congressional
redistricting amendment..
The amendments spon-
sored by the Fair Districts
Now coalition prohibit
drawing districts to favor
incumbents or the party in
power. Other provisions re-
quire district lines to follow
existing political bouridar-
ies as much as possible
and that they do nothing
to diminish representation
of minorities.
Representatives of the
National Association for
the Advancement of Col-
ored People and Common
Cause, partners with the
in the coalition with the
League of Women Voters,
offered similar criticism.
Common Cause national
governing boar member
Peter Butzin suggested
lawmakers hold another
round of public meetings
after proposed maps are
drawn. Gaetz and Weath-
erford also wrote a letter to
Fair Districts leader Ellen
Freiden reminding her that
she once said lawmakers
should get public input for
drawing maps.

Islamorada Fire Rescue
Department spokesman
Glenn Taylor says the resi-
dents of the home found
the almost 300-pound
reptile Sunday morning
in the pool about 100 feet
from the beach.
It took six firefighters

and two other men to
catch the turtle and move
it to the water's edge,
where it walked back into
the Atlantic Ocean and
swam away.
Taylor says the reptile
had dug two nests, but did
not lay eggs.
Officials at the Florida
Keys-based Turtle Hos-'
pital say the turtle was
confused, because it was
likely attracted to light
coming from the home's
illumination sources.

Region's unemployment rate remains steady

From staff reports

The Chipola Workforce Board
reports that unemployment in
the five-county area is serves
held largely steady in May.
A news release from the work-
force board noted "mixed results
from those counties that make
up the Chipola Workforce Board

region, with some of the coun-
ties having slight reductions in
unemployment, while others
showed a slight increase."
Liberty County still has the
lowest unemployment rate in
the region, and the second low-
est unemployment rate in the
state, at 6.5 percent last month.
In Jackson County, unemploy-

ment was 7.4 percent in May, up
from 7.3 percent the previous
month and the same as the un-
employment rate in May 2010.
For the entire five-county
region, unemployment was 8
percent, equal to the previous
month's rate and up slightly
from the 7.9 percent rate in May

It also has another pur-
pose. When most news-

the house was insured.
The Neels said their family,
friends, neighbors and fellow mem-
bers of the El Bethel Assembly of
God church are taking care of their
immediate needs.
They do have one request; they
would be pleased if anyone who
feels like making a donation to
make it to the American Red Cross
in their name.
Jeff Neel said the organization re-
sponded immediately with. offers
of temporary lodging, and money
for food and clothing. Neel said he
declined all but the assistance with
clothing, and.appreciated the ges-
ture more than he could say.
"They were out quick, seeing if we
needed anything," he said. "They
offered lots of good stuff, and we
were grateful they were there. I just
took some assistance for clothing,
but it was reassuring that they came
through the way they did."
The Neels were home at the time
of the fire. Jeff said he knew some-
thing was amiss when the sky lit up
that night around 6 p.m. during a

Specialized Games said in the suit
that the results of a given sweep-
stakes card entry is predetermined
with a finite number of prizes, just
like a sweepstakes card provided by
fast-food restaurants or others using
games to promote their products.
The terminals only provide an
"entertaining representation of the
prize associated with the results of
the sweepstakes entries," the lawsuit
asserts, and the program at the ter-
minal "reveals the content using dif-
ferent displays that simulate various
game themes," the suit continues.
Hess said he stands by his inter-
pretation of the law and what he be-
lieves is going on in the outlets.
"If it looks like a duck, it quacks

"We were standing at the bar
making some chicken salad that
was left over from a family funeral
three days ago," he recalled. "I had
my back turned to the back French
doors, and about that time a big pile
of lightning struck. All you could see
was lightning. We both jumped, and
we could tell that it hit something.
"I looked out back, looking for
our cows, but I found them grazing
in the front. I was looking out the
window at them when the doorbell
starting ringing like crazy, so I knew
something was off. I ran to throw the
Breaker, and I could smell smoke
right there in the breaker room," he
said. "I looked a little further and
saw smoke boiling out the top of the
house. It all happened pretty fast.
My wife called 911 and she started
getting pictures, the irreplaceable
things. I was getting the necessities,
the clothes, and people helped me
get a few other things out.
The piano "took beating" asitwas
being removed from the house, Neel
said, and it was also water damaged
because of the rain that night. He's
hoping it can be refurbished. It was
the one his children learned to play
on, and he'd like to see it restored.
Beyond that, Neel is also coping
as best he can with the loss of the
house he built with his own hands
more than 20 years ago.

golly, it must be a duck," Hess said.
Hess was served with the suit Friday,
and he plans to countersue.
Roberts said he, also, continues to
believe the operations are illegal.
Both Roberts and Hess said they
continue to investigate and are pre-
paring for a court to decide the mat-
ter. They said they will abide by the
court's eventual decision. No hear-
ing on Specialized Games lawsuit
has been scheduled.
One of the' current operations is
located in the bowling alley in Mari-
anna, and two others are at conve-
nience stores in Graceville and Cot-
tondale, according to the suit filed
in the 14th Judicial Circuit court.

He built it for comfort, he said, and
he watched his youngsters grow up
under its roof.
"We were real proud of it," Neel
said. "It Wasn't extravagant, but it
was a nice, beautiful home. It was so
comfortable. You could relax there."
Neel said he plans to have a con-
tractor rebuild on the property,
which once belonged to his grand-
father, R.L. Neel.
Neel said he doesn't want to re-
build the structure himself. That
process would take too much of the
time he could be spending with his
family, he said.
"I got to enjoy seeing my kids grow
up in the house, now I've got to en-
joy them as they're getting older," he
said. "This will make us closer as a
family, and I'm not going to use the
rest of my time with them trying to
build another house."
Jackson County Fire Rescue, along
with Sneads, Dellwood and Grand
Ridge volunteers, sent about 25,000
gallons of water on to the fire, which
Neel believes may have started in
his daughter's room.
The structure, located at 3227
Sand Ridge Church Road, was a to-
tal loss and valued at an estimated
$275,000. The contents were valued
at $200,000 to $250,000, according
to Jackson County Fire Rescue Chief
Tony Wesley.

Student visa program: New rules, same problems

The Associated Press

JACKSON, Miss. The
State Department is pub-
licly acknowledging that
one of its most popular
exchange programs leaves
foreign college students
vulnerable to exploitation,
but it's unclear if new regu-
lations the agency is push-
ing will do enough to stop
the abuses.
The revised rules aim
to shift more responsibil-
ity onto the 53 entities the
department designates of-
ficial sponsors in the J-1
Summer Work Travel Pro-
gram. Historically, many
sponsors have farmed out
those duties to third-party
contractors, making the
sponsors "mere purveyors
of J-1 visas," according to
the State Department's
proposed new rules pub-
lished this spring in the
Federal Register.
Federal auditors have
criticized the department
for years for depending on
sponsors, some of whom
make millions of dollars
off J-1 students, to oversee
the program and investi-
gate complaints. Yet the
new regulations would
require little or no direct
oversight by State Depart-
ment employees, leaving
sponsors free to continue
policing themselves and
their partners.
The changes are to take
effect July 15, too late for
thousands of students al-
ready in the country for
another season of clean-
ing hotel rooms, waiting
tables and working check-
out counters.
Students visiting under
1-1 visas make ideal vic-
tims since they are here
temporarily and may not
know how to seek help. An
Associated Press investiga-
tion published six months
ago found .that many par-
ticipants paid thousands
of dollars to come to the
U.S., only to learn the jobs
they were promised didn't
exist. Some had to share
beds in crowded houses
or apartments, charged
so much for lodging and
transportation that they
took home no pay. Others
turned to the sex industry,
while some sought help
From homeless shelters.
In posting the proposed
new rules, State Depart-
ment officials detailed
problems that largely mir-
rored the AP's findings,
then blamed lack of over-
sight by the sponsors, and
expressed confidence the
changes will help clean
up the program, partly by
requiring sponsors to ver-
ify that students have jobs
and that the employers are
A review of the new regu-
lations shows they have
few teeth, however. While
the changes spell out how
sponsors are to vet third-
party brokers and how of-
ten they are to touch base
with visiting students, the
rules are vague on how vig-
orously the State Depart-
ment will check to verify
those duties are done.
The proposed rules call
for sponsors to compile
reports, including back-
ground checks, on overseas
brokers who put students
in touch with them, and
to submit those reports to
U.S. consulates. The de-
partment also will conduct
a spot check of the biggest
But the agency has just a
handful of employees who
keep track of this and oth-
er foreign exchange pro--
grams, which handle more
than 300,000 participants,
according to the Economic
Policy Institute, a nonpar-

tisan think tank that plans
to publish a report on the
While the State Depart-
ment acknowledged that
housing and living condi-
tions have been a problem,
there's nothing in the new
regulations that addresses
oversight of those issues.
The revised policies also
contain no mention of
penalties if sponsors are
found lacking.
State Department
spokesman John Flem-
ing said rules already on
the books allow sanctions
ranging from written rep-
rimands to revocation of
sponsors' designations.
But the department also
acknowledged that no
SummerWork Travel spon-
sor has ever been removed
from the program for its
treatment of students, de-
spite years of complaints
of exploitation and de-
plorable living and work-
ing conditions, according
to documents obtained
by the AP. And only a few
sponsors have ever been
reprimanded, according to
the State Department.
"You can have all the
rules and the regulations
in the world, but if you
don't have enforcement,
the rules are worthless.
They're not worth the pa-
per they're written on,"
said George Collins, an
Okaloosa 'County, Fla.,
sheriff's inspector who has
been complaining to the
State Department for 10
years about the problems.
Prompted in part by
the AP project and by
complaints from visiting
students, the House Ju-
diciary Committee's im-
migration subcommittee
had planned a hearing
on the program Wednes-
day, but the hearing was
The Summer Work Travel
Program allows foreign
college students to live and
work in the United States
for four months. It brought
more than 130,000 men
and women to the United
States last year alone.
Participation has' in-
creased dramatically over
the last decade, but so have
the problems. In one of the
worst cases unearthed by
the AP, at least two. J-1 stu-
dents from Ukraine were
beaten and forced to work
in strip clubs in Detroit.
One said she was raped by
her captors.
"This is. a dangerous
program because the
State Department has
outsourced its oversight
role to the program spon-
sors and employers who
hire the participants," said
Daniel Costa, an immigra-
tion policy analyst who is
working on the Economic
Policy Institute's report.
State Department offi-
cials insist the "safety and
well-being of all J-1 ex-
change participants is our
top priority," and note that
the vast majority of visi-
tors under the sprawling
program enjoy their stays
and return home with little
The new regulations also
promise closer scrutiny of
participants from several
nations, including Belarus,
Bulgaria and Russia, that
are "known sources of the
types of criminal activity
that the State Department
wishes to avoid," accord-
ing to the Federal Register.
Students have been used
to launder money sto-
len from U.S. banks, and
women forced into the sex
industry through the J-1
program often come from
Eastern Europe.
The State Department,
again shifting blame, said

in the Federal Register that
it wanted to publish the
proposed rules changes
sooner but waited after
sponsors complained they
had already signed coi-
tracts to provide workers
this season to resorts and
other employers.
"Inadequacies in U.S.
sponsors' vetting and
monitoring procedures
contribute to poten-
tially dangerous or un-
welcomed situations for
these participants," the
State Department said in
the Federal Register. "This
past summer the Depart-
ment received a signifi-
cantly increased number
of complaints from foreign
governments, program
participants, their fami-
lies, concerned American
Yet the AP found that
while law enforcement and
others had complained to
the State Department for
years about abuse in the
J-1 program, the agency
didn't start tracking com-
plaints until last year
- after the AP asked for
the documents in a Free-
dom of Information Act
request. Once the agency
began keeping a log of
complaints, the list quickly
grew into the dozens, ac-
cording to documents the
AP obtained through the
Freedom of Information
The AP investigation
found abuse of hundreds
of students in more than a
dozen states. More recent-
ly, the AP obtained emails
between several Thai stu-
dents and their sponsoring
organization, the Interna-
tionalYMCA, based in New
The emails said 12 for-
eign students were each

paying $400 a month a
total of $4,800 to live in
the Florida Panhandle in a
mobile home infested with
cockroaches and rodents.
The Thai students com-
plained to U.S. Rep. Jeff
Miller, R-Fla., saying they
were afraid of a third-party
labor broker, Ivan Lukin,
who arranged for their
housing and jobs. .They
said Lukin threatened
them with deportation
when they complained,
and that the State Depart-
ment and the Internation-
al YMCA did little to help
"We are afraid of Mr.
Lukin and fear for our
personal safety, but the
YMCA has dismissed our
concerns, even after we
have informed them of our
fears," one of the students
wrote to Miller.
When the AP asked
about Lukin, the State De-
partment said in an email
the agency cuts ties with
people or businesses that
violate established proce-
dures. Yet Florida police
warned the State Depart-
ment as far back as 2007
that Lukin was subjecting
students to crowded living
conditions in violation of
housing codes, according
to emails obtained by the
AE There also were con-
cerns the students weren't
being paid.
Lukin declined, to com-
ment about the allega-
tions. He said he would
only answer questions by
email. The AP sent him
questions, but he didn't
At first, the YMCA said
"a small number of par-
ticipants from Thailand
who Lukin had placed"
complained to the State
Department and the Thai

embassy, rather than with
the YMCA, and that those
complaints "were not re-
lated to health or safety
When the AP produced
an email to the YMCA
showing the students
complained about their
health and safety, it agreed
there were problems and
said it would look into the
"We take the students'
allegations very seriously
and have asked outside

consultants to undertake
an independent and com-
prehensive investigation so
that we can fully determine
the facts," said Ellen Mur-
phy, the Y's spokeswoman.
That includes an "im-
mediate and comprehen-
sive review of the Interna-
tional's Y's dealings with
Lukin," she said.

Tigers fall to Dothan, Rehobeth

Graceville's Isam Britt goes for two
during a game in Marianna last

The Graceville Tigers dropped
two of three games in their open-
ing day of the Alabama-Florida
Summer Shootout. on Monday
at Poplar Springs.
The Tigers were routed by Do-
than High by 32 points in their
first game before dropping a
second straight to Rehobeth by
16 points.
But Graceville finished the
day on a positive note with a 12-
point win over Dale County.
However, Tigers coach Thom-

as Register said it wasn't a good
way to start off the week for his
"It was horrible. They were
good," the coach said of Dothan
High, "but not 32 points better.
We played a little better against
Dale County, and I thought we
played better against Rehobeth
too. That's a good team with
some big boys.
"But it's frustrating to me
when it almost seems like there's
a lack of effort, a lack of wanting
to be there. It got better towards
the end of the day, and the good

thing about the summer is you
can bounce back tomorrow and
have a good day. But we've got to
execute better on offense, and
we have to play better defense."
Rehobeth led by 10 points at
halftime, but the Tigers quickly
cut the lead to six before Re-
hobeth answered with a run of
its own to push the lead back out
to double digits.
The Tigers were short-handed,
missing key regulars Jacky Miles,
Rasheed Campbell, and Allante
One of the team's key perim-

eter shooters, Miles is out for the
summer with an injury, while
the starting point guard Camp-
bell is expected back later in the
week after hurting his ankle last
"With those three guys out,
you're missing probably 30
points there that you've got to
make up somewhere else," Reg-
ister said. "But I do think it's good
for these other guys to get some
playing time. We have some
guys out there getting some big
minutes that will help us in the
long run."


All-Stars at it again

The Marianna AAAAll-Stars will be back
in action tonight in Bonifay, although
their margin for error in the double-
elimination district tournament will be
Marianna, which is 1-1 in the tourney,
will take on the loser of Monday night's
winners' bracket game between Holmes
County and Chipley at 6 p.m.
The Marianna All-Stars got off to a great
start in Bonifay, taking a 14-0 win over
Vernon in Friday's opening night.
Wilton Pittman andWesley Rogers com-
bined on the mound to get the victory, to-
taling nine strikeouts to just one walk and
no hits in four innings.
Tristen Bozeman and Jashon Rhynes
led Marianna with two hits each.
The going was much tougher for Mari-
anna on Saturday night against Chipley,
as Marianna gave up an early 4-2 lead
before a late rally fell just short in a 16-14
"It was an exciting ballgame," Marianna
coach Scott Bannerman said. "There were
a lot of hits, some vital errors, and it really
went back and forth.
"We got a lot of good defense, good
pitching, and good defense (in the win
over Vernon). But against Chipley, we
faced a team with a lot of good hitters. We
had a few miscues ip the field, and com-
bined with some walks, that pretty much
cost us the game. But the kids battled
back hard to make it a tight game."
Bannerman said that the urgency of
tonight's game isn't lost on his players.
"They know their backs are against
the wall," he said. "It's a win or go home
situation. They're just excited to see who
they're going to play. If it's Chipley again,
they know what they're up against. If it's
Bonifay, it would be the first time playing
them, so we'd obviously have to go out
there and see what they've got. It will be
a pretty good baseball team, whoever we
face. It will be a challenge for us."

Cottondale and Graceville were set to

Day Classic

The Big Bend Baseball League
of Florida celebrated Father's Day
with its 3rd Annual Father's Day
All-Star Classic on Saturday at
Therrell Field in Chattahoochee.
It was the Western Division
All-Stars who proved superior,
routing the Eastern Division All-
Stars 12-1 thanks to some heavy
hitting and a terrific pitching ef-
fort by the Bay County Brewers'
Justin Perryman.
Perryman pitched six shutout
innings to earn the win, allowing
just three hits on the day.
The effort was enough to earn
him the Most Valuable Player
Award for the game.
Dexter Littlefield coached the
Western Division All-Stars to the
win, their second in the three
year history of the Father's Day
All-Star Classic.
Awards were also presented to
the "Oldest Father of a Player,"
which went to Arthur Faurot, fa-
ther of Ben Faurot.
The "Oldest All-Star Player"
award went to Jose Ortiz, 40, of

MHS Girls drop 3 at Shootout

-2B + TUESDAY, JUNE 21, 2011

The Marianna Lady Bull-
dogs finished a frustrating
week at the Alabama-Flor-
ida Summer Shootout at
Poplar Springs on Saturday,
dropping all three games
on the final day of the team
camp pitting high school
teams from Florida against
teams from Alabama.
The Lady 'Dawgs, who
went 1-10 on the. week,
lost Saturday to Northview,
Holmes County, and Sam-
son by margins of 11, 14,
and 15 points.
Marianna also lost three
games on Friday to Provi-
dence, Abbeville Christian,

and to Sneads the last
coming on a buzzer-beat-
ing 3-pointer in overtime
by the Lady Pirates' La'Tilya
It was a difficult week
overall for the Lady Bull-
dogs, who had several play-
ers go out due to injury,
including starting point
guard Danielle Holden.
Marianna coach Chucky
Brown said that the reduced
numbers and the amount of
games combined to make it
perhaps the toughest week
of the season.
"Most of the games were
real close early on, but hon-
estly, I think fatigue started
to set in," the coach said.

"I'm not using that as an
excuse, but I think our legs
gave out. We started out
with 14 girls, and we fin-
ished Saturday with seven.
, We ended up with just one
returning player in Latia
Bass. The rest were middle
schoolers coming up or JV
However, the coach said
that in the summer, wins
and losses aren't as im-
portant as the larger pic-
ture of the team's overall
"During the summer, the
main concern is getting
better," he said. "A win is
great, but if not, you just
want to see some growth. I

just want to see growth and
improvement. As long as I
see that we're getting bet-
ter, then I'm happy. Once
everybody gets back and
we have a full roster, we'll
be a different team.
"We have to do some
hard work during the sum-
mer, and we're not going to
be the caliber we've been
in the past, but we can be
pretty good contenders. We
can hang in and battle with
other teams."
The Lady Bulldogs have
little time to regroup, as
'they head to Panama City
today to play Bay High at 2
p.m., and then Mosley at 4

Annie's Mailbox

Dear Annie: I have been mn a relation-
ship with "Derek" for two years. I love
him dearly and know we will marry
someday. The problem is, my sister and
her husband will not accept Derek be-
cause we started dating when he was still
going through a divorce.
Annie, I know we should have waited
until the divorce was final, but my sister
can't seem to move past it. She refuses to
meet Derek and has told nie that neither
she nor her husband will come to our
My sister has made mistakes in her'
marriage, and I was always very accept-
ing and forgiving. Leaving Derek is not
an option, but I hate that I don't see my
nieces anymore because of this tiff.
How can I convince her Derek is a good
guy if she won't make an effort to meet

Dear Miss: All choices have conse-
quences, and it helps to be prepared to
deal with them. Yes, your sister seems
unforgiving and harsh, but you cannot


The key to being a good declarer is keeping
the defenders away from their winners as in
today's deal. South is in three no-trump. West
leads his fourth-highest spade. Which card
should declarer play from the dummy? North
used Stayman to try to uncover a 4-4 heart fit.
When he failed, he jumped to three no-trump.
South should call for dummy's king. If there
were a third spade on the board, he should play
low, but not with a doubleton. East captures
the king with his ace and returns the spade 10.
How should declarer continue?
South has seven top tricks: one spade (given
trick one), two hearts, two diamonds and two
clubs. If the four missing clubs are splitting 2-2,
an overtrick is available. And even if they are 3-
1, declarer can establish the two extra winners
that he requires. South must duck the second
spade, take the third, and work to keep West off
the lead, the defender with the spade winners.
Declarer leads a heart to dummy's king and
calls for a low club. Here, East plays the queen,
so South ducks the trick, playing a low club
from his hand.
Mission accomplished! If East has another
spade, the suit must be 4-4 and declarer will
lose only three spades and one club.

fix that. She also may believe that her
intransigent position will force you to
give Derek up. If you plan to stay with
this man, you should conduct your lives
with dignity and integrity and hope that
your sister will someday accept the two
of you as a couple.

Dear Annie: I read the letter from
"Scared Sister," who is worried about *
her younger sister's night vision and her
ability to drive. The sister, "Louise," is
a full-time operating-room nurse who
is required to rotate being on call at
night. You recommended she speak to
her supervisor along with several other
alternatives. Here's one more: Louise
may be able to apply for a reasonable ac-
commodation under the Americans with
Disabilities Act. She should speak to her
HR department or contact the Ameri-
cans with Disabilities website to start the
process. This is federal law, and if Louise
has a legitimate disability, her employer
needs to make a reasonable accommo-
dation for her.
