rm county jail

Marianna Police Department will investigate


Money has gone missing from
a safe at the Jackson County
jail,'and county commissioners

are calling for law enforcement
to investigate where the $1,500
The board voted Tuesday to
refer the matter to the Marianna
Police Department: That action

comes several weeks after the
missing child support payment
was made by an inmate in order
to be released from lock-up.
It was paid on July 11, and was
to have been sent by the county

to the mother of the inmate's
child. The money was never sent
from the jail to the office of Clerk
of Court Dale Guthrie, as proce-
dure requires, so tMat the clerk
could then send it to the intend-
ed recipient. Its disappearance
came to light after the woman
who was to have received it

called the clerk to ask why she
hadn't gotten it. Jail officials sub-
sequently made sure she got the
money she was due, sending a
check to.Guthrie's office so that
she could pass it on to the recipi-
ent. But county commissioners

Habitat for Humanity Auction is Nov. 3

Helen Callaway shifts some of the many items on the block at this year's auction and smoked steak dinner fundraiser benefitting the
Jackson County Habitat for Humanity. ,

Money raised will go towards house for local family


One storage area of the Jackson
County Habitat for Humanity is filled
with Miss Me designer clothes and
accessories, a circular saw, two lawn
chairs, about five mirrors with college
logos on them, snorkeling gear, lamps,
a coffee maker and more.
Everything but the kitchen sink.
"And one year we had the kitchen
sink," Janet Hams said.
The '22nd annual Jacksorn county
Habitat for Humanity fundraiser will
auction off these items and many more,
plus provide a smoked steak dinner on
Nov. 3 at the Jackson County Agricul-
tural Center at 2741 Pennsylvania Ave.
Other items to be auctioned off in-
clude SeaWorld tickets, a barbeque ca-
tering package for 30 people by Big Ka-
huna BBQ, a child's birthday party with
the Chipola College baseball team, a
number of gift certificates, hotel stays.
in Destin, Mexico Beach, Marianna
and Compass Lake, a tree hugger, rifle,

various baked goods and other treats,
car services, gym membership and
The money raised will go toward a
house for a local family. More impor-
tantly, Hams said, this event gets the
word out about the organization and
recruits volunteers.

matter your age or your skills," Harms
Habitat for Humanity works with
people to provide low-cost housing.
The houses are not free, homeown-
ers still pay taxes and a mortgage, but
the building costs are lower because
construction is done by volunteers.
The homeowners themselves must put
in "sweat equity," as Harms said; or a
number of volunteer hours into build-
ing the house.
The average Habitat for Humanity
home costs about $75,000. Some mort-
gages are lower than rent, Hams said.
"Our goal is to help families live in a
safe house," Hams said.

Jackson County Chamber of Commerce

Businesspeople attend Character First seminar


Representatives of businesses through-
out the area attended a seminar on build-
ing character among employers and em-
ployees on Wednesday at the. Jackson
County Chamber of Commerce.
The program, called Character First,
was led by Robert Greenlaw, who has
been teaching Character First techniques
since joining the company in 1996.
Greenlaw first listed a number of prob-
lems businesses often see, from work-

place drama to dishonesty.
"So many of these issues are character
issues," Greenlaw said.
Many companies pride themselves
in being proponents of profit, safety or
quality, but if they focused more on the
character of the employees, employers
and the company as a whole, they would
see an increase in all those goals, among
other things Greenlaw said.
By emphasizing good character traits,
rewarding those who display them and
hiring people who uphold those values,
businesses can be a happier place to

work. Clients will feel more comfortable
working with a person and company that
upholds good values, Greenlaw said.
"The first thing you have to do is build
trust, sell trust," Greenlaw said.
The drive toward good character is a
constant one. It requires constant atten-
tion, Greenlaw said.
"The employees usually settle to the
lowest common denominator," he said.
Alice Rabion, the owner and manager
of a getaway spa Permanent Beauty, saw

Jackson County Jai


found in two

jail accounts


When Clerk of Court Dale Guthrie be-
gan researching the disappearance of
$1,500 from a safe at the Jackson County
jail, she also found some discrepancies
related to how the jail tracks money.
She looked into two inmate-related
accounts, for instance.
One is the Inmate Welfare Fund. The
money going into this fund comes from
things like concession sales toinmates,
such as snacks they might pay for out of
their individual accounts. It also holds
funds that inmates might pay for phone
services they-use at the jail.
The other is the Inmate Trust account,
which maintains funds belonging to in-
dividual inmates. Perhaps a person had
$150 on them when they were arrested;
that money might be deposited into
their account if the money was not re-
lated to the alleged crime. Or a relative
can deposit money for their use into
their individual accounts.


set TDC budget

Includes salary for tourism
development director

Jackson County Commissioners voted
unanimously on Tuhesday to use some
bed tax money to pay a full-time tour-
ism development director at an annual.
salary of $42,500, including benefits.
While there was little discussion
about it immediately
prior to the vote, their ac-
tion followed months of
previous conversations
in workshops and joint
meetings with the Tour-
ist Development Coun-
Donofro Jr. cil, which advocated for
Sthe hire. A director could
be on board as early as next spring, ac-
cording to TDC Chairman Paul Donofro
Jr, who said a steering committee will
likely be appointed to create a job de-
scription and that the position will be
heavily advertised in various markets.
Until someone is hired, the Jackson
County Chamber of Commerce will
continue to manage bed tax dollars un-
der an annual contract with the county.
The Chamber gets 10 percent of the
first -two cents of the four-cent bed
tax revenue generated each year, a fee
which averages about $14,000 a year.
The Chamber supports the change.
Chamber President Art Kimbrough
said he believes a full-time professional
will be able to achieve much more to-
ward tourism development 'than has
been previously possible. The director
will sharefspace in the Chamber's Russ
House headquarters. Bed tax funds

Deputy Jimmy Hamilton, the School
Resource Officer, was instrumental
in the school receiving these items.
As the country's largest and old-
est drug prevention campaign, Red
Ribbon Week works to keep students
drug free. Usually observed the last
full week of October, this year it was
Oct. 22-30. The staff incorporated
activities into lesson plans that week
to teach students reasons for staying
drug free and why Red Ribbon Week
was created.
The campaign was established to
honor DEA Special Agent Enrique
Camarena who was undercover in
Mexico investigating a drug cartel.
He was killed by drug traffickers who
were bringing drugs into thd'United
States. He was missing for a month
before his body was found. Clubs

CHICAGO Siblings

amazed and overjoyed to
learn that he's been living
in Florida for decades.
Tim Lovell and The-

he left their family's Chi-

in search of construction
work. At the time, Gacywas

of young men who went
missing in the area in the
1970s might submit to ge-

Lovell's siblings, who now
live in Ozark, Ala., were
planning to do just that
when they discovered a
recent online police book-

taken in Florida. They
reached their brother, who
goes by his middle name,

a photo during a family reunion in Ozark, Ala. Harold, whose
family had long feared he was a victim of serial killer John

He said he left for Florida
all those years ago because
he wasn't getting along
with his mother and step-
father. Over the years, he's
worked various' manual
labor jobs and has had oc-

including charges for buy-

Moratoriums are not being

Flat tax renews fight on "trickle-down economics'

The Associated Press

-flat tax is making a come-
back among Republican
presidential candidates.
But it faces tough opposi--
tion in Congress because
it tends to favor the rich
at the expense of other
taxpayers, renewing an
old debate about "trickle-
down economics."
Most of the top GOP con-
tenders-- Mitt Romney's
an exception offer a
variation of the tax plan inrr
which everyone pays the
same rate. Businessman
Herman Cain has his 9-9-
9 proposal, and Texas Gov.
Rick Perry unveiled a 20
percent flat tax on income
this week. Even Romney
foresees a flatter tax sys-
tem in the future, though
he favors something closer
to the 'current setup in the
short term.
The idea of a flat tax has
long been championed by
conservative politicians as
being simple and fair. Pub-
lisher Steve Forbes made
it a centerpiece of his Re-
publican presidential cam-
paigns in 1996 and 2000.
Forbes has'endorsed Perry,
calling his economic plan
"the most exciting plan
since (Ronald) Reagan's."
"American families de-
serve a system that is low,
flat and fair," 'Perry wrote
in his tax plan. "They

"It's all about political
rhetoric," said William Mc-
Bride, an economist the

vative think tank. "The in-
evitable result of shifting
the tax burden away from
saving and investment is
that you reduce the tax
burden on the rich." *
Liberals and many mod-
erates complain that a flat
tax is a giveaway to the
rich, -renewing an old de-
bate over whether the ben,
efits of tax cuts for those at,

rest of the population.
"This idea of lowering
taxes on high-income peo-
ple and somehow middle
class people will benefit

time," said Chuck Marr, di-
rector of federal tax policy
at the left-leaning Center
on Budget and Policy Pri-
orities. "Obviously it hasn't
worked very well."
Flat tax plans by both,
Cain and Perry have pro-
visions to protect low-in-

increases. But that raises
questions about who will
be left to pay the tab, said

Center, aWashihgton think
"If you exempt the low-
income people from high-
er taxes, if you cut the taxes
for the wealthy, getting the
same amount of revenue
means the middle class

are going to pay more, a lot
more," Williams said. ,
The federal income tax
currently has six marginal
tax rates, also known as tax
brackets. The lowest rate
is 10 percent, and it ap-
plies to taxable income up
to $17,000, for a married
couple filing jointly. The
top tax rate is 35 percent,

exemptions, which can
greatly reduce the amount
that is taxed. There are also
many tax credits that can
further reduce tax bills.

In all, nearly half of U.S.
households pay no fed-
eral income tax because
their incomes are so low
or because they qualify
for so many tax breaks, ac-
cording to the Tax Policy
Center. Households mak-
ing between $50,000 and
$75,000 pay, on average,
7.2 percent of their income
in federal income taxes.
By contrast, the top 10
percent of households, in
terms of income, pay more
than half of all federal taxes

the corporate income tax
from 35 percent to 9 per-

Occupy Wall Street protesters run from tear gas deployed by police at 14th Street and
Broadway Tuesday in Oakland, Calif.

Oakland protesters vow

to return to the streets

The Associated Press

OAKLAND, Calif. Oakland demon-
strators vowed on Wednesday to return
to their protest site just hours after po-
lice cleared, hundreds of people from
the streets with tear gas and bean bag
rounds. .
A Twitter feed used by Oakland's Oc-
cupy Wall Street movement, called on
protesters to return to downtown at 6
p.m. for another round, and some dem-
onstrators vowed to return as soon as
Max Alper, 31, a union organizer from
Berkeley, gathered with a handful of oth-
er protesters Wednesday at the scene of
Tuesday night's clash.
"As soon as these barricades are
moved, hundreds of people are going to
come back. These actions by police were
wrong, but they're just going to strength-
en the movement," Alper said.
Alper was arrested Tuesday morning
when he went to witness the police raid
on the Occupy Oakland encampment
outside City Hall, he said. He said his arm
was injured when baton-swinging police
descended on him and other protesters.
Standing with about two dozen other.
Occupy supporters near the plaza, 49-
year-old Nsomeka Gomes of Oakland
said she felt the effects of the tear gas
Tuesday but planned to be back to march
Wednesday night nonetheless.
"I'm going to keep supporting the re-
occupation. This is the peoples' plaza,"
Gomes said. ,
On Wednesday morning the city had
erected a -chain-link fence around the
plaza, and workers were mowing the
grass and sweeping up remnants of the
encampment that was dismantled Tues-
day morning.
After the encampment was cleared,
protesters began marching toward City
Hall in an attempt to re-establish a pres-
ence in the area of the disbanded camp.
They were met by police officers in riot
gear. Several small skirmishes broke out
and officers cleared the area by firing

tear gas.
The scene repeated itself several times
just a few blocks away in front of the
plaza, where police set up behind metal
barricades, preventing protesters from
gaining access to the site.
Tensions would build as protesters
edged ever closer to the police line and
reach a breaking point with a demon-
strator hurling a bottle or rock, prompt-
ing police to respond with another round
of gas.
The chemical haze hung in the air for
hours, new blasts clouding the air before
the previous fog could dissipate.
The number of protesters diminished
with each round of tear gas. Police es-
timated that there were roughly .1,000
demonstrators at the first clash follow-
ing the march. About 200 remained af-
ter the final conflict around 11:15 p.m.
PDT, mostly ypung adults, some riding
bicycles, protecting themselves from
the noxious fumes with bandanas and
scarves wrapped around their faces.
. Police have denied reports that they
used flash bang canisters to help break
up the crowds, saying the loud noises'
came from large firecrackers thrown at
police byprotesters. Helicopters scanned
the area late Tuesday and scores of offi-
cers wearing helmets and carrying clubs
patrolled the streets. Fire crews put out
small blazes in trash containers.
Protesters moved about uneasily even
as one used a bull horn to express his
"This movement is more than just the
people versus the police," Mario Fernan-
dez said, "It's about the people trying to
have their rights to basic services."
He added, "This crowd isn't going any-
where anytime soon."
Acting Police Chief Howard Jordan told
reporters at a late night news conference
that authorities had no other choice, say-
ing the protesters were throwing rocks
and bottles at officers.
City officials say that two officers were
injured. At least five protesters were ar-
rested and several others injured.

Man arrested for Mega Gym assault

From staff reports

A man was arrested after rob-
bing Mega Gym in Marianna and
tying a witness up in the back of
the gym.
John Joseph Raines was charged
with robbery with a deadly weap-
on and false imprisonment.
On June 21, a woman noticed
a man in the church parking lot
adjacent to. Mega Gym as she
was pulling into the fitness cen-

Guthrie discovered that the jail
had sent $1,500 from the Inmate
Welfare Fund to cover the money
that had gone missing.from the
safe. But the Inmate Welfare Fund
was established by statute to as-
sist the general inmate popula-
tion in various ways; it might pay
for recreational equipment they
use while incarcerated, or to pay
for basic personal care kits they
receive on being incarcerated.
Guthrie advised Jackson County
Commissioners that refunding
the missing money with the Wel-
fare funds was not appropriate.
The commission agreed and vot-
'ed to replace that Welfare money
She also found some discrep-
ancies in the Inmate Trust fund,

ten report to Jackson County

search, the Trust account's regis-

gym, looking behind her to see
if the man was still
outside. She did
not see him and
entered the gym's
After hearing
some noises, the
Raines victim called out,
thinking it was a
student. Instead, she found the

account. The bank balance in July
was $76,088. The registry balance
was $16,909. It is not clear why
there's $59,000 more in the bank
that is reflected in the inmate's
combined accounts.
While the cause of the differ-
ence is unknown, county staff has
acknowledged that this imbal--
ance has .been ongoing almost
since the new jail was built in the
early 1990s. There is a circum-
stance that could explain the dif-
ference. For some years, inmates
were allowed to make phone calls
that were billed to their Trust
Now, they must make their calls
collect, but the billing practice
was in place for many years and
the county received a share of the
phone service profits. Those prof-
its were to be placed in the Inmate
Welfare Fund, but that hasn't al-
ways happened. It appears that,
while inmates' individual ac-
count balances were reduced by
the proper amounts when they
made phone calls, the money
was not always transferred to the
Welfare fund. Instead, the money
.may have kept accumulating in
the Trust fund.
That could explain the discrep-
ancy between the Trust's registry

The man began looking through
the room and the woman's purse,
holding her by her shirt collar in
the meantime.
As she tried to fight him off, he
held a knife against her neck and
threatened to kill her. He then
took her to a secluded area of
the gym and tied her up, fleeing
A parent about to drop off her
child at the gym later heard the

total and its bank balance, but no
one is sure of this. In any event,
Guthrie suggests moving the
overage to the Welfare fund in or-
der to reconcile the discrepancy.
She further suggests that the reg-
istry be reconciled at least once a
month going forward, with any
excess funds in the Trust being
transferred to the Inmate Welfare
Guthrie suggests that the
monthly documents showing rec-
onciliation of the bank and regis-
try balances be sent to the county
finance office and the county
She also said that she felt that,
while the records and bank ac-
counts for the Trust fund should
be maintained by the jail because
it is the logical thing to do, she
didn't think that the person re-
sponsible for keeping those re-
cords should be the same person
to have check-signing authority
over them.
As for the Welfare account,
which is maintained by jail staff,
Guthrie thinks a third party
should be overseeing or review-
ing the account's financial state-
ments which are prepared by an
outside contractor. Without a
third party in place to look at that

- $12,000 a year will be paid
to the Chamber in rent, but the
Chamber will no longer get a
management fee.
The board also agreed to hire
some part-timers to help the di-
rector, setting aside $17,500 to
pay those workers.
The rest of the TDC budget
includes a $12,500 allotment
for travel and related expenses,
$45,000 for advertising related to
tourism, a $50,000 set-aside for
helping fund local events that
demonstrate an ability to draw
tourists to the area, $22,500 for
capital improvements, and an
$8,000 reserve to use on unan-
ticipated opportunities that may
come up to increase tourism in a
given year.

The bed tax is expected to gen-
erate around $280,000 a year. The
$210,000 operating budget ap-
proved Tuesday leaves $70,000 in
a special fund being set aside in
the event it is needed for a major
capital project.
The money equates to an
amount equal to the revenue ex-
pected to be generated by one
cent of the' four-cent tax. Previ-
ously, the county had been set-
ting aside two of the four cents
for that purpose. Use of that fund
would only be possible if both the
TDC and the county board signed
off on the expense.
The county already has almost
$1.2 million set aside for such a
capital expense and this money
would be added to the total.
Originally, the money was being
held with the purpose of using
the funds as leverage in seeking
a grant to build a multi-million
convention or civic center. How-

.ever, with the economic down-
turn making such grants unlikely
in the near future, the county
eventually agreed to allow its use
on something else if a project
comes along that both parties be-
lieve merits such funding.
On learning of the board's ap-
proval of the budget, with the
tourism development director
position at its center, Donofro
said he was excited about what
that could mean to the local
"It's been a long, long process,"
he said. "It certainly has been one
where we've had to do a lot of edu-
cation and 'selling,' but we believe
it was well worth the effort. It's the
right direction to be moving in, in
that we believe this will allow us
to be more proactive in marketing
and promoting Jackson County as
a tourism destination."
The TDC had originally asked
the county to budget all four cents,

victim's cries for help. The parent,
afraid for her safety, left the area
with the child and called 911.
Marianna Police Department of-
ficers arrived, freed the girl, and
began an investigation.
On Sept. 8, the victim saw her
assailant at her work. During the
investigation, it was determined
that Raines was that man and a
warrant was issued on Oct. 26.
Officers arrested Raines without

work, Guthrie says, it is impossi-
ble to provide a proper separation
of duties necessary for internal
control purposes.
She recommends that the ac-
count be transferred to the
board's financial office, and that
a special revenue fund be set up
for financial reporting purposes.
Doing so, she said, would in ef-
fect place the fund under normal
policies and procedures of county
Doinig so would provide a layer
of internal controls outside the
jail, she said, since bank recon-
ciliations, check -signings and
record maintenance would be
performed by the finance office.
She also recommended that the
Inmate Welfare Committee and
the Chief of Corrections be re-
quired to approve all Welfare fund
expenditures prior to payment
and that a monthly report of the
transactions be provided to them
for review.
Guthrie noted in her report that
the jail staff members went out
of their way to provide informa-
tion for her review and was very
receptive to all suggestions in her
review. Some of her suggested
changes are already made or in
the works.

TDC soon realized it would have
to compromise to achieve ap-
proval from the county commis-
sion; "We might not have gotten
everything we wanted, but we're
still happy with where we are,"
he said, noting that the proposed
budget was trimmed in almost ev-
ery line item in order to set aside
one-cent's worth of revenue.
For instance, the salary for
the director was originally set at
$60,000, rather than $42,500.
Some details of the hire are still
being worked out. For instance,
it still hasn't been determined
whether the director would be a
county employee or hired under
contract through the TDC. Dono-
fro said he believes that a con-
tract arrangement might be best,
at least for the first two or three
years, to give the TDC more flex-
ibility in the early years of work-
ing with the new position.

concluded Tuesday that
the jail personnel had sent
the Clerk money from an'
inappropriate resource,
the Inmate Welfare Fund,
agreeing with Guthrie's
written opinion on that as-
pect of the situation.
commissioners voted
to reimburse the Inmate
Welfare Fund with money
from a contingency set-
aside in the general county
Their next order of busi-
ness is to find out where
the inmate's money went.
Several board members
said its disappearance
should have been imme-
diately reported to law
enforcement, and unani-
mously voted to do so
Some basic research into
the matter has already
been done by Guthrie at
the request of County Ad-
ministrator Ted Lakey,
and the information she
has gathered so far indi-
cate that Baggett may have
some challenges in getting
to the bottom of the case.
For instance, her find-
ings reveal that as many as
seven people have keys to
the safe, in addition to the
officer who first took cus-
tody of the money. She also
learned that inmates may
have access to the .area
where the safe is kept. Fur-
ther, she said, it appears
the money wasn't'properly
logged in.
Administrative officials
at the jail have cooper-
ated with Guthrie's office
in ironing out some of the
general tracking issues
that surfaced as a result
of the situation, and that
some procedural changes
have already been made to
correct weaknesses in the
chain of custody.
In her report to the board
ey, Guthrie wrote that "This
situation or similar situa-
tions could have happened
at any county department.
Custody procedures in
place at the jail were being
followed, but were not ad-
equate to prevent this type
of occurrence."
The missing money and
Guthrie's overall research
led to decision by Lakey
to ask IGuthrie to estab-
lish a county-wide over-
age/shortage policy for the
board to consider. It is still
being written and will be
brought to the board for a
vote when it is completed.
As of 10 a.m. Wednes-
day, Marianna Chief of
Police Hayes Baggett had
not yet gotten a call from
the county requesting that
he investigate the missing
money but said he would
do so once he is asked.

Police jailed for killing

that sparked Egypt revolt

The Associated Press

CAIRO Two policemen convicted
of beating a young man to death in a
case that inspired Egypt's uprising were
sentenced to seven years in prison on
Wednesday, enraging families of the po-
lice who smashed wooden benches in the.

Khaled Said is seen as Egypt's Moham-
med Bouazizi the fruit seller whose
self-immolation sparked the Tunisian
revolution that began the chain of Arab
Spring uprisings. His death became an
immediate rallying point for activists
campaigning against widespread police
brutality and other human rights abuses
under former President Hosni Mubarak.
Months later, a Facebook page created in
his memory was used to put out a call for
the Jan. 25 protests that grew into the 18-
day uprising that would topple Mubarak.
The family said they were "shocked"
by the verdict, adding it shows that the
revolution is being "aborted." Egyptian
activists immediately took to Twitter to
condemn the light sentence, another in
a long string of disappointments for the
millions who considered this case a test
of the extent that the revolution would
sweep away deep-seated corruption and
widespread injustice.
The 28-year-old Said died on June 6,
2010 after two plainclothes policemen
dragged him out of an Internet cafe in the
northern port city of Alexandria and beat
him to death, according to witnesses.
Police tried to portray him as a drug
dealer and claimed that Said choked on a
packet of drugs he swallowed as they ap-
proached, a finding contested in recent
forensic reports that showed the packet
was forced into his mouth.
The claim met with derision by many
after photos of Said's corpse were widely

circulated, showing his body covered
with bruises, his teeth broken and jaw
After, a public outcry, prosecutors ini-
tially charged the officers, Mahmoud

crushed to death in their

While media coverage
has centered on tales of
against-the-odds rescues,
including a 2-week-old
baby girl who was pulled
alive from the rubble, most
stories of the trapped have
ended the way that Son-
mez knows, with death
and unfathomable pain
for those left behind.
"I was not at home,"
Sonmez said, lapsing into
silence at times Wednes-
day. "God gave them, God
took them away. I can't
find anything to say.
"I can't describe my
pain," he said as he stood
by a leveled four-story
apartment building.
He listed the dead: 32-
year-old wife Meral, four
daughters 2-year-old
Nisa Nur, 7-year-old Mery-

15-year-old Meral and

Erdem was pulled out
around the same time
that rescue workers also
freed another teacher. The
woman was thirsty and

Excavators with heavy
equipment began clear-

Prime Minister Recep

shoddy construction con-
tributed to the high casu-

He compared the al-

officials and builders to
murder because they ig-

problems in sending aid

Lady 'Dawgs lose heartbreaker

in district tourney to Walton

Marianna's Aerial Folsom lifts a ball into the air
during a match earlier this season. The Lady
Bulldogs' season ended Tuesday night in a district
semifinal loss to Walton in five sets.

The Marianna Lady Bulldogs saw
their season end in heartbreak Tuesday
night, falling in five sets to Walton in the
District 1-4A tournament at home.
It was a semifinal game, and the Lady
Bulldogs appeared on their way to an
upset win, a playoff berth and an ap-
pearance in tonight's district title game
after winning the first two sets by scores
of 25-17 and 25-21.
But the Lady Braves narrowly edged
out wins in the third and fourth sets
by scores of 26-24 and 27-25, and then
won the fifth and final set with a con-
vincing 15-6 victory.

best my kids have played all year."
Belinda Christopher,
Marianna coach

It was a tough way to end the year for
Marianna, but coach Belinda Christo-
pher said she couldn't have been proud-
er of the effort of her team in defeat.
'It was a super match. It was the best
my kids have played all year," she said.
"That's the way we should've been play-
ing the entire year."
A win would have been a big surprise
after Marianna lost the two regular
season matchups and Walton won six

highly motivated coming in and pre-
pared to pull off the upset.
"They were ready for Walton,". the
coach said of her players. "Maybe Wal-
ton came in a little flat having beaten
us twice before, but our kids were fired
up and ready to go. We ran our offense
very well. We've struggled with our
serve and serve receive, but we did very
well (Tuesday night). We were very on
target. The girls have come a long way
since the start of the season. I'm very
proud of them."

Will Power says

he's committed to

IndyCar Series

The Associated Press

Will Power said Wednes-
day he's committed to
IndyCar and believes the
series will become much
safer from the investiga-
tion into Dan Wheldon's
fatal accident.
Power was involved in
the 15-car accident that
killed the two-time India-
napolis 500 winner. Pow-
er's car went airborne in
the Oct. 16 accident and
hit the wall that had an
energy-absorbing SAFER
barrier at Las Vegas Mo-
tor Speedway.
In the days after the ac-
cident, reports in Power's
native Australia indicated
he was reconsidering his

future in IndyCar, which
he said is not the case.
"I am committed, I am
staying in IndyCar, sim-
ple as that," Power said.
Power suffered a bro-
ken vertebra in the ac-
cident, his second seri-
ous back -injury. He also
broke two vertebrae in
a 2009 crash at Sonoma.
The injurywill temporar-
ily keep him from testing

Penske Racing president
Tim Cindric said the
driver is mentally ready

cine for any race car

dric said.

NBA sides meeting

in hopes of ending

months-long lockout

The Associated Press

,ers and players resumed
talks aimed at ending the
lockout Wednesday, less
than a week after three
intense days of media-
tion didn't produce a new
labor deal..
The sides got back to
the table with a small
group meeting and met
or more than six hours.
Talks broke down last
Thursday when players
said owners insisted they
agree to a 50-50 split of
revenues as a condition
to further discuss the sal-
ary cap system.
The first two weeks of
the season already have
been canceled, and there's
little time left to save any
basketball in November.
Commissioner David
Stem has said he feared
even games through
Christmas would be in
jeopardy if there wasn't a
deal last week.
Stern rejoined the talks
Wednesday after miss-
ing last Thursday's ses-,
sion with the flu. He was
joined by Deputy Com-
*missioner Adam Silver,
owners Peter Holt of San
,Antonio, Glen Taylor of
Minnesota and James
Dolan of New York, and
a pair of league office
The union was repre-
sented by executive di-
rector Billy Hunter, presi-

dent Derek Fisher of the
Lakers and vice president
Maurice Evans of the
Wizards, attorney Ron
Klempner and economist
Kevin Murphy.
The players have low-
ered their proposal to 52.5
percent of basketball-re-
lated income, leaving the
sides about $100 million
apart annually, based on
last season's revenues.
Players were guaranteed
57 percent of BRI under
the previous collective
bargaining agreement.
The system is the other
chief hurdle. Seeking
greater parity .among
their 30 teams, owners
are looking to reduce
the ways that teams can
exceed the salary cap so
that big markets won't
have, a significant pay-
roll advantage. They have
proposed raising the tax-
es the highest spenders
would pay, but players
fear the penalties would
be so punitive they would
. act like a hard salary cap.
The sides also are strug-
gling over items such as

players' contract lengths

Annie's Mailbox

Dear Annie: My husband, "Harry," and I
have been married for 32 years. Recently,
he lost his job because of disability. I
work two jobs to support the family.
Six months ago, Harry suggested we
sell our house and move to his old home-
town two hours away. I refused because
of my jobs and our children, who live
near us. Harry says he spends too much
time alone while I work. He also doesn't
like that I have the grandchildren over,
saying I care more for them (and my job)
than I do for him.
I know he feels bad because he cannot
work, and I have tried to find him hob-
bies. He has been visiting his hometown
twice a week. At first, I thought he had
someone else on the side, but he says
he just likes to be there. It's comfortable.
Now he says he is going to move to his
hometown without me. He told me he
still wants to "date" and stay in our home
once a week so he can see the grandchil-
dren and work on our marriage.
I am confused. It seems Harry isn't sure
he's still in love with me. Now I will have
to find a third job just to make the house
payment. I am so hurt and angry. What

In today's deal, with four trumps missing,-
the declarer has to be careful to allow for a bad
break in that suit. South is in seven clubs. After
West leads the heart nine, what should declarer
The auction was instructive. South's' two- Wt
diamond rebid was a reverse, showing extra 1
values (usually 17 to 20 high-card points), five- V
plus clubs and shorter diamonds. Four clubs
announced slam interest in clubs. South con-
trol-bid (cue-bid) four diamonds. Then, when
North control-bid in hearts, South, now know-
ing that the opponents could not cash the first
two tricks in that suit, used Blackwood twice
before bidding seven clubs.
Southhas 12 fop tricks: two spades, two hearts,
three diamonds and five clubs. The 13th win-
ner should come from ruffing the diamond two S
in the dummy, generating a sixth trump trick. 1
If the trumps are breaking kindly, everything is 2
fine. Just in case they are 4-0, though, declarer 4
should play a trump to his hand at trick two. 4
When West discards, South cashes the ace and 5
king of diamonds, ruffs the diamond two with
dummy's trump ace, plays a club to his nine,
draws trumps, and claims.

should I do?


Dear Nellie: We think Hainy is depressed
and adrift. His hometown provides a
soothing cocoon and a reminder of bet-
ter times. Right now, you need to con-
sider your own welfare. We recommend
you talk to an attorney to make sure you
are protected. You may need to sell the
house and move into a smaller, more af-
fordable place. Decide whether you wish
to "date" Harry, relocate to his hometown
or divorce him. Some short-term coun-
seling could help with these decisions,
and although it would be useful for Harry
to go with you, if he refuses, please go
without him.

Dear Annie: I chuckled while reading
the letter from "Stressed Out by Picky
Eaters," whose family members drive
her crazy with their food preferences. It
brought back memories of an old friend
who had a sign in her kitchen: "You have
two choices for dinner: Take it or leave

Recall: Marshall Gardens
PatioGlo Bio-Fuel Gel
The Florida Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services, the U.S. Consumer Prod-
uct Safety Commission (CPSC), and Marshall
Group, of Elkhart, Ind., have announced the re
call of about 39,000 bottles of Marshall Gar-
dens PatioGlo bio-fuel gel. The pourable gel
fuel can ignite unexpectedly and expel onto
people and objects nearby when it is poured
into a firepot that is still burning. This hazard
can occur if the consumer does not see the
flame or is not aware that the firepot is still ig
united. Gel fuel that expels and ignites can
pose fire and burn risks to consumers that
can be fatal.
The Marshall Group has received four reports
of incidents, resulting in three injuries with
burns requiring hospitalization.
This recall involves pourable gel fuels pack-
aged in 32 oz. clear plastic bottles and sold
with or without citronella. The label on the
container says "PatioGlo bio-fuel gel" or "Cit-
ronella PatioGlo". The fuel is poured into a
metal cup in the center of ceramic firepots or
other decorative lighting devices and ignited.
The following products are included in this re
Model Number: PG-32 | SKU: 845095015023
Model Number: PGC-32 (Citronella) I SKU:
The recalled fuel was sold at gift shops, homi
and garden stores, and online stores nation-
wide from November 2010 until August 2011
fdr between $7.99 and $11.99.
Consumers should immediately stop using
the pourable gel fuel in firepots and return al
bottles to the company for a full refund.

SEC's other division heats up with showdowns

The Associated Press

Southeastern Conference has an
Eastern Division, too, although
largely overshadowed with the
season-long focus on Western
powers LSU and Alabamha.
But the East takes center stage
in the SEC this weekend with
the country's top two teams off
- the No. 1 Tigers will play the
No. 2 Crimson Tide on Nov. 5.
The division's top contenders,
No. 14 South Carolina and No. 22
Georgia, take their champion-
ship hopes on the road.
The Gamecocks (6-1, 4-1 SEC)
play their first game without star
tailback Marcus Lattimore at
Tennessee (3-4, 0-4). The Bull-
dogs (5-2, 4-1) head to Jackson-
ville, Fla., for their annual show-
down with Florida (4-3), which
despite a 2-3 SEC mark still can
make it to the Georgia Dome for
a shot at another championship.
Players on the Eastern con-
tenders pay just as close atten-

tion to their division race as LSU
and Alabama players might on
the BCS standings.
"Oh, there's attention on our
side," S6uth Carolina coach Steve
Spurrier said. "Ask those Georgia
Bulldogs what kind of attention
-they're giving us every week."
And with good reason. Georgia
looked down and out after an 0-
2 start that included a 45-42 loss
to the Gamecocks in Athens on
Sept. 10. But the Bulldogs have
rallied with five consecutive
wins since and know any stum-
ble by South Carolina wipes out
its head-to-head advantage.

Murray said his team needs to
continue its week-to-week fo-
cus and hope for a Gamecock

But Lattimore suffered a sea-

weeks ago at Mississippi State
only days after Garcia, previously
benched for sophomore Connor

Shaw, was kicked off the team for
failing a substance abuse test.
Freshman Brandon Wilds will
start for Lattimore in a critical
game at Tennessee, where South
Carolina is 1-14 all-time.
Georgia has had few of South
Carolina's personnel issues dur-
ing its recent run, and is getting
stronger with the return of soph-
omore linebacker Alec Ogletree
from a broken foot in the Bull-
dogs loss to Boise State.
Don't overlook Florida, which
despite losing badly to LSU and
Alabama neither Georgia nor
South Carolina has to face those
Western powers this year has
the advantage of facing both of
its rivals down the stretch and
could rise to the top by winning
out and getting some help.
Florida also returns start-
ing quarterback John Brantley
for the Georgia game, some-
thing coach Will Muschamp
believes will give his team a
psychological boost for the final

Harris, Miami

look to stay hot,

host Virginia

The Associated Press

MIAMI Jacory Harris
isn't out for revenge this
week against Virginia.
In fact, what the Cava-
liers did to him in 2010
may have set the tone for
his stellar play so far in
Miami's quarterback was
knocked out of the Hur-
ricanes' game against the
Cavaliers a year ago, and
that one huge hit started
the downward spiral that
doomed the team in 2010.
Beginning with a loss that
day, Miami dropped four
of its last six games, and
when Harris returned to
the field later that season
he struggled mightily.
This year, he's finally
clicking. With 12 touch-
downs and only four in-
terceptions, Harris is on a
roll, and he'll look to lead
the Hurricanes to their first
three-game winning streak
since October 2009 when
Miami (4-3, 2-2 Atlantic
Coast Conference) hosts
-Virginia (4-3, 1-2) in an-
other key Coastal Division
game on.Thursday night.
"It's a big game because
it's an ACC game," Harris
said. "It's not big because
of what happened last
year. Last year is last year.
Things happen. I got hit.
Got knocked out. But it was
. a great thing. It helped me,
I guess, find the next level
and start really, recogniz-
ing a lot of things in life."
Virginia is noticing the
Harris threw 32 intercep-
tions as a sophomore and
a junior. He went more
than 17 quarters with-
out one before the fourth
quarter of last week's win
lover Georgia Tech, when

a pass intended for John
Calhoun hit the receiver,
bounced skyward and into
the hands of Yellow Jackets
linebacker Jeremiah Attao-
chu a mistake no fault of
Harris' own.
"He'll just continue to get
better, I believe," Virginia
coach Mike London said
of Harris. "He's already got
the height and the arm
strength and the skills, and
you can point it out. His
touchdown to intercep-
tion ratio has dramatically
increased because he can
read the roads and he can
put the ball and place the
ball where it needs to be
placed. That's a benefit to
Miami as his development
London has some ongo-
ing quarterback issues of
his own.
The Cavaliers have used
two quarterbacks all sea-
son, with Michael Rocco
starting and freshman
David Watford entering
games at times typically
predetermined by London
and offensive coordinator
Bill Lazor.
Starting now, that plan is
apparentlybeing scrapped.
Rocco will have an expand-
ed role, with Watford's be-
ing more situational, less
Miami's record is 15-2
in Thursday night games,
and the Hurricanes will
spend part of the evening
honoring several past na-
tional champions, includ-
ing the 2001 team that
captured the school's fifth
football title. There's some
irony there, in that the last
time Miami scheduled a
celebration around a game
with Virginia, things did
not work out well for the
