Crews battle multiple fires in past week
One fire damages home of Sneads Town Council member [., -'
BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
Jackson County Fire Marshal Chuck
Sawyer said a fire on Monday heavily
damaged the home of Sneads Town
Council member Mike Weeks.
The house at 7935 McKeown Mill
Road was reported on fire around
9:14 a.m. Sawyer said it appears a
pot of grease was left unattended
on the stove. He said when firefight-'
ers arrived, flames and smoke were
showing on the stovetop.
Jackson County Fire Rescue and
volunteer firefighters from Sneads
and Grand Ridge were dispatched to
put the fire out. No one was injured
in the blaze. With extensive smoke
and fire damage to the kitchen and
some throughout the house, Saw-
yer said the home will likely require
some repairs before the family can
again occupy the structure.
The Monday blaze was the latest in'
a series of fires that have kept local
emergency crews busy for the past
several days. i
On Sunday, Aug. 28, around 11:17
a.m., the county fire team and
Sneads and Grand Ridge volunteers
were dispatched to battle a house
fire at 1552 Ivey Lane in the Sneads ... ,
area. According to the American Red MARK SKINNER/FLORIDAN

Plans for property
BY LAUREN DELGADO
Once filled with students and teach-
ers, the Union Grove School property
has sat unattended for years now.
That may be about to change.
At Union Grove's whole school re-
union last weekend, plans to renovate
the property into a community center
Bettye Worlds Dickens, class of 1956
and reunion chairwoman, said the ren-
ovations will come in two phases. The
first involves cleaning up the grounds.
Waste Management donated a dump-
ster, which she said has been continu-
ously filled with debris.
The second phase involves putting a
chain link fence around the property to
discourage vandals or anyone else from

damaging the old school buildings.
Ira Borders Clark, who attended the
school in the early-to-midl960s, picked
up debris on the grounds last week with
other volunteers. She said before they
began cleaning the grounds, you didn't
realize there was a building on them.
For Clark, the hard work is worth it.
"We're looking forward to great things
from that center," Clark said.

help in wake

A 71-year-old Grand Ridge woman
was in Atlanta Monday waiting on a
plane that will take her north to help
some of the communities hit by Hurri-
cane Irene over the weekend.
Jan Desch expects to be away from
home until Christmas. Her first stop
will be Albany, NY. She doesn't know an
itinerary beyond that, but is prepared to
go wherever she's needed.
"You have to be very, very flexible to
work with FEMA in these situations,"
Desch said. "It all depends on what has
happened and where you can best be

cause of the need she saw in the wake
of 2004's Hurricane Charlie, she has
worked as a part-time FEMA Disaster
Assistant Employee since that storm.
Within two weeks of calling to see if
FEMA needed help that year, she was
on her way to Columbus, Ohio, where
flooding had resulted from the storm
that first made landfall near the south-
central Florida town that she called
home back then. She would eventu-
ally go to Orlando and Port Charlotte in
post-Charlie service, staying a year at
the last destination.
She has never looked back. Retired,
Desch is paid for the work she does for
FEMA, but said she does it also for the

Bacteria killing palm trees
The Associated Press
ST. PETERSBURG An
insect with a disgusting
habit is killing palm trees
in the Tampa Bay area
and experts are worried
the disease transmitted by
the bugs will affect trees
around the state.
The first Florida sighting
of Texas Phoenix Palm De-
cline was in 2005 in Mana-
tee'County. Since then, it's
been detected in Hillsbor-
ough, Pinellas and Polk
counties, although experts
say Manatee County is still
the hardest-hit area.
According to Univer-
*sity of Florida's Institute
of Food and Agricultural
Sciences, the disease is
spread by a planthopper
insect but the exact kind
of bug isn't yet known. The
insects pierce the palm
leaves, then" vomit and
the vomit spreads the
bacteria that causes the
disease. The small bacte-
ria, called phytoplasma,
affects the bottom palm
leaves first. Those leaves
turn yellow and eventually
die,'then the bacteria af-
fects the young spear leaf
and eventually the entire
tree is killed.
"It's pretty scary," said
Brian Dick, assistant su-
perintendent for parks
in the city of Lakeland.
"We've invested quite
heavily in our palm trees
over the past 25 years.
To have a disease come
out of nowhere and kill
our palm trees, it's pretty
Dick estimates that 20
to 30 percent of the city's
700 Phoenix palms a
type of tree that includes
the expensive and showy
Sylvester palm are in-
fected with the disease.
An unknown number of
saball palms within' the
city are also infected, he
Monica L. Elliott, a pro-
fessor of plant pathol-
ogy at the University of
Florida's Fort Lauderdale
Research and Education
Center, said it's troubling
that the state tree the
native sabal palm-is also
affected by the disease.
While landscapers and
cities can manage the con-
dition with antibiotic in-
jections, that's only likely
to happen with expensive
trees. It's less feasible to do
so in wild sabal palms, she
If the condition spreads
throughout the state, Elliot
said it could change the
entire Florida landscape.
"We would be losing a
large population of a na-
tive palm that is found
throughout the entire
state. We wouldn't see it
in the natural areas," she
Elliott and other UF re-
searchers are trying to de-
termine which planthop-
per insect is responsible
for the Texas Phoenix Palm
Decline. The insect and
disease was first detected
30 years ago in Texas.
Texas Phoenix Palm De-
cline is similar to lethal
yellowing, a disease which
largely affects coconut
palms in South Florida.
Palm decline has been
spotted as far east as
Lakeland and as far south
as Sarasota. The disease
is less likely to sweep into

Obama rounds out economic team
The Associated Press
dent Barack Obama
tapped labor economist
Alan Krueger for a top ad-
ministration post Monday
as the White House scram-
bles for solutions to repair
an- ailing economy ahead
of the 2012 election.
Krueger's nomination to
chair the White House
Council of Economic Ad-
visers in a Rose Garden
ceremony Monday morn-
ing. The president said he
expected Krueger, a for-
mer Treasury Department
official and Princeton
economist, to provide him
with unvarnished eco-
nomic guidance, not par-
tisan political advice.
"That's more impor-
tant than ever right now,"
Obama said. "We need
folks in Washington to
make decisions based on
what's best for the coun-
try, not what's best for any
political party or special

Leo Sims, class of 1968 and re-

He said the buildings would take

Cross, a family of four was assisted
by that organization after the blaze
did extensive damage to the home.
Sawyer said the owner and occupant
of record was listed as Tony Walker.
Like the fire on McKeown, this was
also believed to have originated in
the kitchen, on the stovetop.
On Friday, Aug. 26, county fire
teams and volunteers from Camp-
bellton and Graceville were dis-
patched around 7:45 a.m. to 2509
New Bethel Road in Campbellton.
Sawyer said heavy smoke was show-
ing when they arrived. They were
able to put the fire out, which was
believed to have been electrical in

"We love to rock," Rowe said.
The Building Strong Families Tri-
athlon and Duathlon raised about
$2,200 for local nonprofit organi-
zations Tri-County Home Builders
Association, Big Bend Community
Based Care and The Heart Gallery of
North Florida last Saturday.
The races included the above-
mentioned triathlon, a 5k and a du-
athlon. The duathlon consisted of
a one-and-a-half mile run, 10-mile
bike ride and 5k run.
Before the races began, the City
of Marianna Fire Rescue had set up
two stations, one inside the park
and one along the biking and run-
ning route. The Jackson County
Sheriff's Department was also on
hand, diverting traffic away from
Blue Springs Road.
Firefighter Kathy Johnson said the
most common injuries during these
competitions were sprains, broken
bones and heat exhaustion. No
one was injured during the event,

Liz Lee, a 52-year-old Orlando
resident, stood on the dock inspect-
comes a week ahead of
pated announcement on
a new jobs initiative.
With the nation's unem-
ployment rate stubbornly
stuck above 9 percent and
much of the public deeply
dissatisfied with Obama's
handling of the economy,
the president has prom-
ised a new set of jobs
"Our great challenge as a
nation remains how to get
er," Obama said. "That's
our urgent mission."
Obama has already
called for an extension of
a payroll tax cut that ex-
pires at the end of the year
and he wants to continue
jobless benefits. Aides are
considering other mea-
sures, including tax incen-
tives for businesses to hire
and direct *infusions of
government money into
construction projects. The
president has said he in-
tends to call for additional
long-term deficit reduc-
tion to help pay for the
short-term spending his
proposals would require.

Garden of the White House in Washington on Monday.

fall agenda Monday, with
Majority Leader Eric Can-
tor, R-Va., saying the party
would focus on repealing

and walls are strong, Dickens said,
but a new roof, door and windows
are needed. A feasibility study has
not been done yet.
Union Grove School was the area's
earliest black school. The school was
integrated in 1968. The high school
closed in 1970 and the elementary
school was closed in 1972. Sims
said the Jackson County ARC used
the property until the early to mid
1990s. From then on, the property
fire appears to have originated in
the kitchen and was believed to be
accident and electrical. The kitchen
was completely destroyed, along
with an adjacent bathroom. Sawyer
said heavy smoke and heat damage
throughout the house caused an es-
timated $100,000 worth of damage.
Last Wednesday, Aug. 24, a county
fire crew doused a car fire at the in-
tersection of Butler Road and State
Road 69 north. Sawyer said it ap-
pears the fire started as the result
of a brake failure. On the same day,
fire crews were called upon to put
out a grass fire along the shoulder of
Smokey Road in Campbellton. Saw-
yer said it appears the fire resulted
when a grass mower blade struck an
object and ignited the blaze.
Last Tuesday, Aug. 23, around
12:08 a.m., firefighters from the
county and the Alford and Camp-
bellton volunteer fire departments
went to the Green Circle Bio-Energy
plant in Cottondale to put out a fire
in the chipper mill of the wood pellet
plant. Sawyer said the fire was con-
tained to the immediate area and
no one was hurt in the incident.
On the same day, around 7 a.m.,
fire destroyed a house at 4493 Field-
ing the water before the race began.
A runner since her: 40s, Lee began
cross training after some injuries.
This is her third year competing in
"We should be setting an example
for younger kids to become active,"
For 50-year-old Michael March-
man, competing is a lifestyle. The
Dothan, Ala., resident runs six miles
during the week, and over the week-
end he rides his bike 70 miles and
swims seven miles.
"You ain't got to do it to be com-
petitive," he said. "You can do it for
the fun of it."
Marchman's wife and son stood
by the road with other families and
friends. Some had traveled hours
just to be there.
Leslie Palmer, of Jacksonville, ar-
rived in Marianna the night before
to cheer on her friend, Michelle
"She's determined to do it," Palm-
er said about her friend.
Gautreaux's children, 4-year-old
Landon and 11-year-old Lauren,
were also there to watch her com-
pete. They learned a thing or two
about their mom.
"I didn't know she could swim,"
By 7 a.m., the duathlon contes-
tants had grouped up near the road,
while the triathlon contestants
waded into Blue Springs.
The springs' muck and weed for-
regulations that GOP law-
makers say are driving up
the cost of doing business
and discouraging em-
ployers from hiring new
has been vacant.
Although the school itself has been
closed for years now, Union Grove
students have stayed involved with
the community. Dickens said about
11 Chipola scholarships have been
given to students with affiliations to
Union Grove. Donations and volun-
teers for the new community center
are welcome. Checks can be made
out to the Union Grove Community
crest Circle in the Holy Neck comi-
munity near Jacob. The woman who
lives next door to that house, Em-
mah Tillman, also owned the struc-
ture that burned.
Sawyer said she called in a report of
the fire after she looked out her win-
dow and saw the other house had
burned completely to the ground.
Sawyer said the previous occupant
of the house has been incarcerated
for some time, and fire investiga-
tors are looking for information to
help them determine how the fire
started. The house was built in the
1940s, and had no active electricity.
Also on Tuesday, fire teams helped
put out a garbage truck fire.
Last Monday, Aug. 22, around 5:36
a.m., fire crews from the county and
Sneads and Grand Ridge volunteers
were sent to a house fire at 7168
Birchwood Road. An addition of the
home was on fire, Sawyer reported.
The teams were able to confine the
fire to that section of the home. Saw-
yer said the blaze was the apparent
result of a lightning strike.
During this series of fires since
last Monday, the emergency crews
had also responded to 93 medical or
other non-fire related calls.
ests were soon forgotten as the race
The triathlon and duathlon com-
petitors completed their respective
races in about 90 minutes, while the
5k racers took about 30 minutes.
As the athletes came in, most
grabbed a banana or orange slice
from a folding table. All of them
grabbed a water bottle, a lot of them
dumping half on their heads and
chugging the other half.
After crossing the finish line, Dale
Nash, 61, was one such athlete. He
has been competing for 16 years, in-
cluding 11 Ironman competitions.
He loves to compete, especially
against younger people.
"Try to keep young at heart ya
know," Nash said.
Once all the athletes completed
their races, an award ceremony was
held. The awards were split by cqm-
petition, then gender and finally
age. Medals were given to the win-
ners of each age category. Overall
winners were given trophies.
The nonprofits plan to make this
an annual event. Plans for next year
include holding a kids triathlon.
"This is all about the community
coming together," said Kathy Dono-
fro, an adoption and permanency
specialist at Big Bend Community
After the award ceremony, most
contestants got into their cars and
left, off to finish their Saturdays in

New England battles floods in Irene's aftermath
The Associated Press
MONTPELIER, Vt. New England
towns battled floods of historic propor-
tions, utility crews struggled to restore
power to 5 million people along the East
Coast, and big-city commuters coped
with transit-system disruptions Monday
as the rainy remnants of Hurricane Irene
finally spun into Canada.
The death toll climbed to 35 people
in 10 states after a number of bodies
were pulled from the floodwaters in the
The storm never became the big-city
nightmare forecasters and public officials
had warned about. But it toppled trees
and power lines and washed away roads
and bridges some of them well inland
from the coastal areas that bore the brunt
of Irene's winds.
In Vermont and upstate New York, nor-
mally placid streams turned into raging
torrents tumbling with tree limbs, cars
and parts of bridges.
Hundreds of Vermonters were told to
leave their homes after Irene dumped
several inches of rain on the landlocked
state. Gov. Peter Shumlin called it the
worst flooding in a century, and the state
was declared a federal disaster area.
Communities were cut off, roads
washed out, and at least a dozen bridges
lost, including at least three historic cov-

WASHINGTON-Tropical Storm Irene's
trek up the East Coast caused less damage
than many had feared, a bit of reassuring
news for a fragile economy.
Insured damages from the storm will
likely range between $2 billion and $3 bil-
lion, and total losses will likely be about
$7 billion, according to preliminary esti-
mates from Kinetic Analysis Corp., a con-
Both figures are lower than had been
expected, suggesting that the storm pos-
es little threat to the nation's $14 trillion
economy. Some economists said that, as
with past hurricanes and earthquakes, the
recovery could end up boosting growth in
the coming months. Demand for build-
ing repairs might help the depressed con-
struction industry, for example.
"Irene left several places with black
eyes, but it doesn't seem to have delivered
an economic knockout," said Ryan Sweet,

mont," Shumlin said Monday. "We have

thing like it," said Michelle Guevin, who

Across the Northeast, commuters coped
with slowly restarting transit systems as
the workweek began.
In New York City, the nation's largest
mass transit system returned to life early
Monday with bus service and all subways
up and running by midday. Commuter
rail service to Long Island and New Jersey
was being partially restored, and trains
from the city's northern suburbs were to
reopen on a limited basis later Monday.
Commuter trains from New Jersey were
not running. Riders were warned to ex-
pect long lines and long waits, but early
commuters reported smooth rides.

will have caused far less insured damage
than the $6 billion the insurance industry
paid out after Hurricane Isabel struck the

Middle School Football Jamboree Preview
C....Tigers ready to
show off their claws
Head Coach Hunter Nolen shows Will Smith what to focus on during a recent Bulipups' practice.
Out of the doghouse
Bullpups excited about tonight's jamboree
BY DUSTIN KENT
The Marianna Middle School
Bullpups will face their first live
action tonight in Vernon when
they take on Roulhac Middle
School in a preseason jamboree
The Bullpups will play the
Tigers in the second of three
halves tonight, with Graceville
and Freeport getting the first
half started at 6 p.m.
Vernon and Bonifay.will face
off in the third and final half.
It's the first real game for all
of the teams participating, and
Marianna coach Hunter Nolen
said that he was using it to focus
primarily on one side of the ball
more than the other.
"We're just mainly going to
work on our offensive series and
things like that. We're not really
scouting them with our defense,"
the coach said. "Winning would
be great,, but the most important
thing we're looking for is seeing
our guys remember where they
need to go and how to line up
"Winning would be great, but the most important thing we're

in our offensive sets. When the
guards pull, they need to know
where to go...sttifflike that."
One aspect of the game that
won't come into play is special
There won't be kicking or
punting; rather, each team will
take possession at its own 20-
yard line, and the ball will be
marked off 40 yards in lieu of a
punt on fourth down should the
offensive team choose to give up
"That's good for us because
our special teams has been
kind of lacking," Nolen said.
"But we're excited to get over
there. We'Te tired of hitting each
other. We want to hit somebody
else, and it will be good to have
something on film that we can
look at and show the kids their
mistakes, and hopefully some of
the great plays they made."
The Bullpups had their final
formal scrimmage of fall prac-
tice on Friday, with the first-
team offense working against
most of the first-team defense
with mixed results.
"We looked good at times,
but I'm worried about the
cramping," Nolen said. "I'm not
sure we're where we need to be
conditioning-wise. We haven't
run as much as I would like to.
Hopefully, we can get through

just ready to play," first-year Ti-
gers coach Phillip Haynes said
Monday. "This is going into our
fourth week of. practice. We're
not weary, just eager. It seems
like we've been playing each
other every single day for two
Haynes slid he was basing his
game plan for tonight's game
on what he saw from Freeport
"I know they started off last
year running the spread, and
I think they went to a Wing-T
after that," he said. "They used
a lot of motion last year, so
we've been preparing for that.
But we're pretty much ready for
anything since it's a preseason
While the game won't count
in the regular season standings,
Haynes said it's still an impor-
tant tool for himself and his
staff to get the Tigers ready for
the real season.
"It's a measuring stick to see
where we are at this point after
practicing for this long," he
said. "It can tell you whether
or not your guys have been
conditioned enough, and it can
also expose your weaknesses."

"I want to make sure they're
familiar with the system, and
make sure they know their as-
signments and understand
what we're trying to do on of-

said. "We're going to go by the
fundamental stuff and see
where it goes from there. We'll
do a little more base stuff, but
we won't be too conservative.

The Marianna High School
golf team will make its season
debut today in Bonifay against
the Holmes County Blue Devils
at 3 p.m.
The Bulldogs are coming off of
an 8-4 season in 2010, but lost
their two top golfers from last
year's team in Cameron Oliver
and Tyler Harris.
All four of those losses came at
the hands of today's opponent,
and Marianna coach Scott Wig-
gins said starting off this season
with the Blue Devils will reveal
much about his team.
"I think it will be a good test to
see where we're at," he said. "I
think (the Blue Devils) lost a few
golfers last year, but I'm sure
they'll still have a good team.
It will just be a good way to see
how far we've come for sure."
Wiggins said the record
against the Blue Devils last year
doesn't fully indicate the sepa-
ration between the two teams.
"They were competitive
matches. They just seemed to
come out ahead a few strokes,"
the coach said. "But they've got
a good all around team. Our
kids have been working hard,
and we'll be able to see what
the results of that work are

Dear Annie: I work in a small office
with two other people. The office was
understaffed to begin with, and my boss
is now undergoing chemotherapy and is
out two weeks of every month. Then my
co-worker decided to retire. As a result, I
had to work a fair amount of overtime in
our busiest season.
Right now, the office consists of a part-
time worker and me. Even though our
busy season has passed, I still often end
up with an hour of overtime each week.
My boss's boss has decided that since my
peak-season overtime wasn't "pre-ap-
proved," she isn't going to pay it. Fur- .
thermore, she had my time clock hard
coded so that no matter what time I log
in or out, I only get credit for a standard

sated employee, and I have significant

I get in trouble. If I do stay late, I don't
Mainly in magazine articles and newspaper
columns, one player will find an eccentric bid

nent off the scent). This deal contains both!
How should South proceed in three no-trump

problem would be to move North's five-card
suit into the minors. But there is reason behind
my apparent eccentricity.
South has seven top tricks: four hearts and *
three diamonds. Probably four more winners 4
will come from spades, but if the defender with
that ace shifts to clubs, it will surely be curtains.
To try to persuade the defenders to continue at-
tacking diamonds, declarer should take the first
trick with his king, not with the jack. When he
then drives out the spade ace, West will prob-
ably persevere with diamonds. If South wins
trick one with his diamond jack, though, West
is more likely to shift in desperation to clubs.
What happens if South is in four spades after
a transfer sequence and a diamond lead? Then
declarer immediately takes his three diamond
winners and discards a club from the board.
Finally, if North is in four spades, East will
surely lead the club king. Then West must over-
take with his ace and return the suit. He ruffs
the third club and has the spade ace to come.

Needless to say, I am looking for an-
other job. In the meantime, what do I do
about this no-win situation?
Dear Workplace: You are being treated
unfairly. However, in a small, privately
owned business, there are likely no
higher-ups to complain to.'
And although we agree that you should
be compensated for the overtime, one
extra hour a week is, frankly, not that
much. What many employers fail to real-
ize is that employees need to feel valued
You put in a lot of hard work during a
busy season when you were effectively
flying solo. The boss could alleviate
much of this ill will (and the possibility of
losing a loyal employee) simply by letting
you know how much she appreciates
you. We hope she sees this.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
- In order to be properly
and fairly compensated for
your work, you may have

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
- Those in your charge
must be made to realize
there are reasons for rules
and order and that these
must be obeyed.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov.22)
- If you attempt to even
up the score with some-
one who has wronged you,
chances are you will incur
even more complications.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-
Dec. 21) Many times we
can unwittingly ignore the
deserving while catering to

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

are in harmony with yours,

gether will fizzle.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
- In order to be a bit eas-
ier on yourself than usual,
you should delegate some
work responsibilities to
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
- If you try to apply a bit

- Unless the dispersing
of family funds is handled
with consideration for all
parties, it could become
a sticky issue within the
household for some time.

- Co-workers are apt to
emulate your behavior, so
if you establish a poor ex-
ample, nothing is likely to

The Bullpups come into
the season with a talented
array of skill players, but
still question marks on
the offensive and defen-
sive lines. However, Nolen
said his offensive front has
made significant progress
in recent practices.
"The offensive line is
starting to click a little bit.
They're starting to come
around," he said. "We're
starting a sixth-grader
there named Deontra
Rhynes, and the first cou-
ple of days we threw him
out there, he looked like a
sixth-grader. But the past
few practices, he has been
coming around. We're ex-
pecting big things from
him. We need him."
With returning run-
ning backs Herman Wil-
liams and Quattre Couch,
receivers Tre Clemens
and Alex Edwards, and a
quarterback in Anton Wil-
liams who Nolen said has
impressed, the Bullpups
could be consistent offen-
sive line play away from
having a vintage MMS
for," the coach said. "We'd
like to have a real big year,
but the schedule is really
tough. We'll go out there
and give it our best. We ex-
pect great things here."
Marianna will have to
turn around and play its
regular season opener
on Thursday on the road
against Walton, but No-
len said that shouldn't af-
fect the way he coaches
"Not really. We'll let our
kids play and try to get
some playing time for ev-
erybody," he said. "That
may be tough to do with it
only being a half, but we'll
try to get everybody in and
get their feet wet. It's es-
pecially big with a young
team like this to get them
