volunteers that we really appre-
ciate it and we hope to see them
next year," Lipford said. "Thank
you to all our customers."
The servers working and do-
nating their tips during the day
shift were Farren Barfield, Terissa
Crutcher, Kassie Lipford, Bethany
Pappas, Leigh Berry, Beth Beasley
and TrinaVelarde.

Educators enjoy


Christmas party


Special to the Floridan

The Chipola Home
Educators home school
group enjoyed their an-
nual Christmas party on
Dec. 1, at the Caverns
Road Church of Christ in
Marianna.
Upon arrival, the children
began their first project: to
design and decorate cards
that would be given to lo-
cal nursing home residents
during a visit the following
week. Along with the hand-
made cards and a time of
singing and piano playing
by the students, they will
also provide crocheted lap
blankets and Christmas
stockings to each resident
they visit.
During the party, CHE
students also made.a card
to take home with them as
a keepsake or to give to a
loved one.
The games then began,


as event coordinator and
parent, Cheryl Robinson,
prepared a number of fun
indoor activities: "Carry
the Egg," "Pin the tail on
the Donkey" for the young-
er children, and "Decorate
a Human Christmas Tree"
for the older kids, which
proved to be a very popu-
lar game.
A variety of snacks -
cookies, cakes, chocolate
sticks and more was
served, and after a time of
fellowship,, children and
parents .traveled to the
home of Steve and Connie
Young to practice songs
they would sing to the
nursing home residents.
The -party and practice
session were a fun and
memorable time for every-
one to begin the month of
holiday celebrations.

Guest Opinion


Campaign mud


obscures purpose


of payroll tax
By The Tampa Tribune

A concern we had last year with the 12-month cut
in the payroll tax was that it would be very hard
o end it this Christmas season. Failing to renew
the cut would cause a 50 percent tax increase on Jan. 1
for workers.
Continuing the cuts would mean either higher taxes
or lower spending elsewhere, sinking the nation deeper
in debt, or making the Social Security retirement pro-
gram less secure:
So here we are 11 months later. Although the Senate
on Thursday refused to pass either of two competing
plans to extend the tax break, both parties promise the
payroll tax reduction will be extended. How or if it will
be paid for remains in doubt. The political forecast calls
for mud-slinging and confusion.
President Obama is campaigning as a tax-cutter and
says Republicans who disagree with his plan are break-
ing their promise not to raise taxes. "Don't be a Grinch,"
he tells them.
SRepublicans counter that Democrats who refuse
to cut spending are jeopardizing the country's credit
rating and that Obama's idea to hit the wealthy with a
surtax would punish job,creators and kill jobs. Some
Senate Republicans want to offset lower payroll taxes by
freezing federal wages and trimming the federal work
force.
That plan is smarter, considering that wages for many
government workers at the local level already have
been frozen.
Obama's idea of a surtax on those earning more than
$1 million has superficial appeal, with one important
'consequence: The national retirement programwould
no longer be self-financed by workers. The more it
depends on the new surtax, the less it would be the
worker-owied system that has proved so durable and
popular. Tax rates and benefit schedules would become
political footballs bouncing in unpredictable directions.
Any feeling of security would be lost. .
Also lost in the debate over how best to lower taxes to
create more private-sectorjobs is that Social.Security
now is taking in less from workers than it is paying out
in benefits to retirees. The amount of the payroll tax
holiday, the Tax Foundation reminds us, is not small
potatoes. It is more than the total revenue from the
corporate income tax.
The 2011'payroll-tax cut of 32 percent for workers was
sold as a simple way to give the economy a big boost.
It probably helped avoid even slower growth, but that's
without factoring in the costs of increasing the federal
debt. Neither party wants to concede a payroll-tax
reality raised by the blunt-talking Republican rdpresen-:
tative from Arizona, Jeff Flake: "Unless we are willing
to have a commensurate change in benefits, then we
shouldn't do it."
Last year the payroll tax For workers was cutfrom 6.2'
percent of pay to 4.2 percent. Employers continued
to pay their 6.2 percent, which.meant an overall 16
percent cut in revenue. No one would dare suggest a 16
percent cut in benefits.
Obarha's new plan is even more aggressive. He wants
to cut the rate down to 3.1 percent for workers and
give employers a similar break on the first $5 million
Sin payroll, with extra tax breaks allowed for new hires.
Meanwhile, Social Security checks are going up 3.6 :
percent to cover the higher costs of living.
Obama shows a.bafflinglack of attention to the
sovereign debt crisis in Europe, The United States is col-
lecting only about $60 dollars for every $100 it spends,
and he has been lackadaisical about finding ways to cut
expenses.
Until the president begins leading us toward a sus-.
Stainable policy for economic growth, debt control and
retirement security, he need only look in the mirror to
see the Grinch. .

Remember Pearl Harbor,



remember the Utah


BY DALE MCFEATTERS
Scripps Howard News Service

n Dec. 7, 1941, in the infa-
mous sneak attack on Pearl
Harbor, Japanese naval
aircraft sunk the battleship USS
Arizona, killing 1,177 of its crew
while they were preparing for a
quiet Sunday morning.
The mostly submerged wreck,
sheltered by a graceful and distinc-
Stive white canopy, is a National
Memorial, justifiably visited by the
thousands who make the pilgrim-
age to its resting place. It may be
one of the best-known sights in
Hawaii.
On the'other side of Ford's
Island, almost directly across from
the Arizona, is another National
Memorial, if not exactly forgotten,
certainly largely overlooked. The
battleship USS Utah was sunk by
torpedo, some say three torpedoes,
and, despite-a couple of unsuccess-
ful attempts to move it, the rusty
orange remains of the Utah remain
where it rolled over on its side at
,8:01 that Sunday morning.
The USS Utah society complains
that the Memorial "is not men-
tioned in tourist brochures." And,
indeed, the small memorial on the '
shore and that part of Pearl Harbor


is off limits to visitors without spe-
cial permission.
The isolation and the quiet no
parking lot, no tour buses, no
crowds, the isolation --somehow
make it more poignant than the
Arizona, even though the periodic
oil bubbles create the odd sensa-
tion that some small part of the
ship is still alive.
The 521-foot Utah was commis-
sioned in 1911. In a curious and
now largely forgotten 1914 engage-
ment, a hastily thrown-together
detachment led by Utah's Marines
landed in Vera Cruz to prevent a
large shipment of German-sup-
plied weapons from reaching the
Mexican military. The significance
of this only became apparent later
when it turned out the German
government was trying to prod
Mexico into attacking the United
States. From that engagement,
Utah's detachment was awarded
seven Medals of Honor.
The Utah spent World War I
covering convoys from a base in
Ireland and postwar had brief stints
as a flagship in Europe and South
America. With the signing of a naval
disarmament treaty in 1922, the
Utah was downgraded from battle-
ship to auxiliary ship, training gun-
nery crews and serving as a target


for other ships ard naval aircraft.
In another curious sidelight, .
during sea trials in the 1930s it was
successfully operated by remote
control from another ship, presag-
ing the modern era of the drone.
It was in its capacity as a target
ship that the Utah arrived in Hawaii
in early September 1941. Some
think that the heavy wooden plank-
ing intended to protect the Utah
from the practice bombs might
have misled the Japanese into
thinking it was a carrier.
The Utah, too, had its tales of
heroism. Electricians and engine
room crew who remained at their
posts to give their shipmates a
change to escape. The senior officer
aboard, Lt. Cmdr. Solomon Isquith,
went through the ship trying to
ensure that his crew escaped was
himself trapped and had to be
pulled out through a porthole. Even
as the Japanese were strafing the
wrecked ships, the crew climbed
onto the wreck and cut a hole in the
hull, freeing six trapped sailors.
The Utah carried a crew of 519.
Fifty-eight of them died that day.
Periodically they are rejoined by the
ashes of their old shipmates.
In remembering Pearl Harbor, we
should notforget the Utah.Indeed,
we salute you.


.y ,a
Brutality and impunity at FAMU
bln loylt remin It is a culure


BY BILL MAXWELL
St. Petersburg Times


S pike Lee's 1988 film "School
Daze" is filled with violent
hazing scenes involving the .
Gammites, pledges for the Gamma
Phi Gamma Fraternity at Mission
College. The Gammites struggle to
please their Big Brothers.
SOne scene is notably brutal: The
Big Brotherslline both sides of the
dark hallway. At the farthest end
stand the Gammites. One by one,
the Gammites run through the line:.
They cover their heads and eves as
the Big Brothers beat them unmer-
cifully. They are going through the
"Gamma Mill." Top administrators,
including the president, go about
their regular business, paying little
if any attention to the ritualized
brutality on their campus.
Although Mission College is a
fictional school in a fictional South-
ern city and Gamma Phi Gamma
is an imaginary frat, "School Daze"
depicts real hazing, a practice that
includes paddling, punching, slap-
ping, sleep deprivation, branding
and the forced drinking of excessive
booze.
Mission College could be Florida
A and M University. Such scenes
have occurred at the historically
black school in Tallahassee thou-
sands of times during the history
of its famous band, the Marching
100. The band now is in the news
because of the alleged hazing death
of Robert Champion, a 26-year-old
clarinet player and drum major. /
Champion, a Decatur, Ga., na-
tive, died Nov. 19, a few hours after
performing on the field during the
Florida Classic football game in Or-
lando, where FAMU lost to in-state
rival Bethune-Cookman University.
He was found unresponsive on a
bus outside the band's hotel. He
died at a hospital.
Julian White, the 71-year-old
band director fired by FAMU
president James H. Ammons for


"misconduct and/or incompe-
tence" spoke with band mem-
bers shortly after Champion died.
He said it appeared the drum major
had been hazed on the bus, repeat-
edly struck bya group of band
members. He vomited and lost
consciousness after the beating.
White described the attackers
as "a gang." Investigations reveal
that the band.has several gangs, or
inter-band frats, with handles such
as "The Clones," the "Red Dawgs
Organization" and the "White
Whales." Each gang enforces its .
own cred, a practice FAMU alumni
and supporters long ago accepted
as part of the price of belonging to.
the nation's most famous marching
band and one of the university's
best recruiting tools. It has per-
formed at several Super Bowls, the
Grammys, at presidential inaugura-
tions and represented the United
States at the 200th anniversary of
the French Revolution.
If, as evidence indicates, Cham-
pion died from hazing, the Board
of Governors, which controls the.
university system, should punish
those responsible to the maximum
extent. This includes Ammons.
When he became the university's
10th president in 2007, replacing
interim Castell Bryant, Ammons
was greeted with signs reading
"Welcome Home" and "A True
Rattler." A Florida native, Ammons
earned his bachelor's degree and
master's degree from FAMU, taught
there during the 1980s and served
as a top administrator before
going to North Carolina Central
University.
His homecoming was to be'a new
beginning at the nation's larg-
est historically black university.
For years, it had been plagued by
financial mismanagement and aca-
demic problems that threatened its
accreditation.
Ammons made several positive
changes, but the destructive culture
of cronyism, nepotism, secrecy and


. blind loyalty remain. It is a culture,
Which Ammons knows well, that al-
lows hazing to thrive in the March-
ing 100.
As its legend grew over the years,
the band became FAMU's brand,
and administrators either turned a
blind eye to its many misdeeds or
gave light punishment such as sus-
pensions from the.band rather than
expulsions from the university.
Over the years, White, a tenured
professor who was associated with
the band for 38 years and was its
director since 1998, repeatedly told
his supervisors about hazing inci-
dents as 150 pages of documents
released after Ammons fired him
show.
He held hazing workshops, spoke
one-on-one with band members,
sought out places where hazing
was suspected and suspended
many players over the years. In fact,
he suspended 26 players for hazing
a week before this year's Florida
Classic. And to no avail, in a letter
to then-band director William Fos-
ter during the 1980s, White warned
that the death of a member as a
result of hazing could spell the end
of the Marching 100.
Ironically, the end came for
White's career. Ammons is using
him as a scapegoat to divert atten-
tion from his failure of leadership
related to hazing, a third-degree
felony in Florida. Ammons also
dismissed four students for their
alleged involvement in the drum
major's death.
As he should, White is suing to
get his job back, arguing that as a
tenured professor he has the right
to due process.
The university's board of trustees,
Chancellor Frank Brogan, Gov. Rick
Scott and other officials should
investigate Ammons' leadership
and fire him if he is shown to have,
acted irresponsibly by condoning
cover-ups and ignoring years of
evidence and warnings that hazing
was routine.

Christmas tree controversy takesroot in RI


The Associated Press

PROVIDENCE, R.I.
- ,Carolers singing "0
Christmas Tree" .crashed
Rhode Island's Statehouse
tree lighting on Tuesday
after Gov. Lincoln Chafee
unwrapped a holiday hub-
bub by calling the-17-foot
spruce a "holiday" tree.
Chafee insisted his
word choice was inclu-
sive and, in keeping with
Rhode Island's founding
as a sanctuary for religious
'diversity.
But his seasonal seman-
tics incensed some law-
makers, the Roman Catho-
lic Church and thousands.
of people who called his
office to .complain that
the independent governor
was trying to secularize
SChristmas.
"He's trying to put our
religion down," said Ken
.Schiano of Cranston, who
came .to the tree lighting
after hearing about the
controversy. "It's a Christ-
mas tree. It always has
been and it always will be,
no matter what that buf-
foon says it is."
Chafee did not address'
the several hundred peo-
ple who filled the State-
house to watch the tree
lighting. Afterward, he
said he was surprised by
the heated reaction to
his word choice. Chafee


argues that he is simply
honoring Rhode Island's
origins as a sanctuary for
religious diversity. Reli-
gious dissident Roger Wil-
liams 'founded Rhode Is-
land in 1636 as a haven for
tolerance, where govern-
ment and religion would
forever be kept separate.
Chafee's immediate pre-
decessor. also referred to
Statehouse trees as "holi-
day" trees.
"If it's in my house it's a
Christmas tree, but when
I'm representing all of
Rhode Island I have to be
respectful of everyone,"
Chafee said, after the tree
lighting. "Now we can get
back to next year's budget
...with pleasure,"
After Chafee lit the "holi-
day" tiee, a few dozen
carolers interrupted a per-
formance by a children's
chorus to sing "0 Christ-
mas Tree." The dispute also
prompted the Providence
diocese to schedule a
competing Christmas tree.

Statehouse. A Republican
state lawmaker erected a
tree in a Statehouse hall-
way to give Rhode Island
residents an alternative to
the official state "holiday"

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
People walk by a tree referred to as a "holiday tree" by Gov. Lincoln Chafee.in the rotunda of
the statehouse in Providence, R.I. on Tuesday.


Reilly, chancellor of'the
Providence diocese, said
Chafee's desire to be in-
clusive is laudable, though
he chose the wrong way to
do it.
He said he hopes the
controversy will prompt
Christians to contemplate,
the holiday' true mean-
ing, which he said far out-
weighs any spat over what
to call a tree.
"He probably had the
best of intentions but
somewhere, somehow we
lost hold of the true mean-
ing of the season," Reilly
said. "It's all about the


baby Jesus. We tend to al-
most forget this."
But by citing Roger Wil-
liams, Chafee is upholding
Rhode Island's legacy as
one of the first secular gov-
ernments in the modern
world, according to Barry
Lynn, executive director of
Americans United for the
Separation of Church and
State.
"Rhode Island is Roger
Williams country," said
Lynn, who is also a United
Church of Christ minister.
"He was one of the great
champions 'of religious
freedom and diversity in


our history. There is no
war against Christianity.
We have a dizzying level
of religious freedom in
America."
Some attendees said
both sides of the tree spat,
need to focus more on the
.spirit of the season and
not a label given to a blue
spruce.
"Why are they mak-
ing such a big deal about
this?" asked Deborah Mc-
Nerney of Pawtucket, who
came to the Statehouse to
,see her son perform with'
a children's chorus. "It's
Christmas, after all."


Arrests at the Mexican border continue to drop


The Associated Press

WASHINGTON Arrests of il-
legal immigrants along the U.S.
border with Mexico are at the
lowest level since the Nixon ad-
ministration; indicating that few-
er people are attempting to cross
the border to live or work in. the
United States. The development
could change the debate on il-
legal immigration from securing
the border to handling the people
who are already here.
It's the sixth straight year appre-
hensions have dropped.
"Increasingly the problem is the
11 million people (in the country
illegally), rather than the border
itself," said Demetrios Papademe-
triou, president of the Migration
Policy- Institute, a non-partisan
research organization.
In the fiscal year that ended
Sept. 30, Border Patrol arrested
327,577 people trying to cross
the southern U.S. border.. Mean-


while, Immigration and Customs
Enforcement officials deported
a record 396,906 people over the
same period. That marks the first
time in decades that formal re-
movals from the U.S. outpaced
arrests at the border.
The number of arrests of people
trying to sneak across the border
has been steadily declining since
2006, after an all-time high of
more than 1.6, million apprehen-
sions in 2000. During those 10
years, more immigrants have be-
come settled residents of the U.S.
According to the Pew Hispanic
Center, nearly two-thirds of the
country's estimated 10.2 million
adult illegal immigrants have
been living in the United States
for at least 10 yeats. A decade ago,
fewer than half had been in the
U.S. that long.
"This is all part of a larger pic-
ture that we're not seeing very
many new undocumented immi-
grants coming in, so the share of


new undocumented immigrants
is smaller," said Jeffrey Passel, se-
nior demographer at the Pew His-
panic Center. "A lot of people are
staying. They've put down roots.
There clearly hasn't been-a large
scale departure of people who
have been here a while."
But politicians are still fighting
over who is best equipped to se-
cure the border.
Attempts to pass immigration
reform legislation have repeated-
ly failed, with Republicans saying
they won't support any bill that
provides a path to legalization for
illegal immigrants who are here
and won't consider other reforms
until the border is secure.
Some GOP presidential candi-
dates, including former House
Speaker Newt Gingrich, have
signed a pledge to build a fence
along the length of the southern
border there is -already more
than 600 miles of towering steel
fencing in place. Texas Gov. Rick


Perry, who does not support a.
, border fence, has proposed add-
ing to the-1,200 National Guard
troops currently stationed along
the bordering a support role. Perry
and Gingrich have both spoken
of the need for "humanity" in
dealing with illegal immigrants
who are already here, and were
both criticized by conservative
Republicans.
Homeland Security Secretary
Janet Napolitano has said the
border is more secure than ever
before "and it is clear from every
measure we currently have that
this approach is working."
But the weak U.S. economy and
tough new immigration laws in
states such as Alabama and Ari-
zona likely play as much of a role
in the drop in illegal crossings as
increased security efforts, said
Doris Meissner, former head of
the Immigration and Naturaliza-
tion Service and a senior fellow at
the Migration Policy Institute.

Pearl Harbor survivors return to ships after death


The Associated Press

HONOLULU Lee
Soucy decided six years
ago that when he died he
wanted to join his ship-
mates killed in the attack
on Pearl Harbor.
Soucy lived to be 90,
passing away just last year.
On Tuesday, seven decades
after dozens of fellow sail-
ors were killed when the
USS Utah sank on Dec. 7,
1941, a Navy diver will take
a small urn containing
his ashes and place it in a
porthole of the ship.
The ceremony is one of
five memorials being held
this week for servicemen
who lived through the as-
sault and want their re-
mains placed in Pearl Har-
bor out of pride and affinity
for those they left behind.
"They want to return
and be with the shipmates
that they lost during the
attack," said Jim Taylor, a
retired sailor who poordi-
nates the ceremonies.
The memorials are hap-
pening the same week the
country observes the 70th
anniversary of the aerial,
bombing that killed 2,390
Americans and brought
the United States into
World War II. A larger cer-
emony to remember all
those who perished will
be held Wednesday just
before 8 a.m. Hawaii time
- the same moment the
devastating attack began.
Most of the 12 ships that
sank or were beached that
day were removed from
the harbor, their metal
hulls salvaged for scrap.
Just the Utah and the USS
Arizona still lie in the dark


blue waters. Only survivors
of those vessels may return
in death to their ships.
The cremated remains of
Vernon Olsen, who served
aboard the Arizona, will
be interred on his ship
during a sunset ceremony
Wednesday. The ashes
of three other survivors
are being scattered in the
harbor.
Soucy, the youngest of
seven children, joined the
Navy out of high school
so he wouldn't burden his
parents. In 1941, he was a
pharmacist mate, trained
to care for the wounded.
He had just finished
breakfast that Sunday
morning when he saw
planes dropping bombs
on airplane hangars. He
rushed to his battle station
after feeling the Utah lurch,
but soon heard the call to
abandon ship as the vessel
began sinking. He swam
to shore, where he made a
makeshift first aid center
to help the wounded and
dying. He worked straight
through for two days.
The Utah lost nearly 60
men on Dec. 7, and about
50 are still entombed in the
battleship. Today, the rust-
ing hull of the Utah sits on
its side next to Ford Island,
not far from where it sank
70 years ago.
Soucy's daughter, Mar-
garet, said her parents had
planned to0have their ash-
es interred together at their
church in Plainview, Texas.
But her father changed
his mind after visiting
Pearl Harbor for the 65th
anniversary in 2006.
"He announced that he
wanted to be interred.on

looked little hurt and per-

part of your ashes that was
your mouth and I'll have
those interred on the Utah.
And you can then tell those
that have preceded you,
including those that were
entombed, what's been go-
ing on in the world,'" Mar-
garet Soucyrecalled saying
with a laugh.
"'And the test of your
remains we will put with
mother in the church gar-
dens 'at St. Mark's.' And
then my sister spoke up


and said, 'Yes, then mother
can finally rest in peace,'"
she said.
The family had Ibnged
kidded Soucy for being
talkative -they called him
"Mighty Mouth" so Mar-
garet Soucy said her father
laughed and agreed. "He
just thought that was hi-
larious," she said.
"So that is what we are
doing. We're taking only
a portion of his ashes. It's.
going to be a small urn,"
she said.

MARK SKINNER/FLORIDAN
Sneads' Logan Neel goes up for two against Marianna on
Monday.


High School Girls Basketball


MHS girls hold off Sneads


BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com

The Marianna Lady Bulldogs over-
came a slow start to take a 52-43 road
victory over the Sneads Lady Pirates
on Monday night.
Latia Bass had 14 points and 17'
rebounds to lead the Lady,'Dawgs,
while Tasharica McMillon scored 20
points to lead Sneads.
The Lady Pirates jumped out
to a 13-9 first quarter lead thanks
largely to 10 points in the period by
McMillon.
But the Sneads sophomore found
herself in foul trouble in the second
quarter and Marianna took advan-
tage, outscoring the Lady Pirates 18-
6 to take a 27-19 halftime lead.


Marianna was able to extend its
advantage to as much as 18 points in
the second half before a late charge
by Sneads that was again keyed
by McMillon, who scored 10 more
points in the fourth quarter.
However, the Lady Bulldogs were
able to hang on for the win that
perhaps helped wash away some of
the bad feelings from last weekend's
lopsided home loss to Malone.
"We were very flat at the begin-
ning of the game, but you're always
happy with a win," Marianna coach
Chucky Brown said after the game.
"But there are still a lot of things for
us to work on. We're off pretty much
a week before our next game, so we
need to use that time to do a lot of
fundamental work like boxing out


and not turning the ball over.
"But I saw a lot of good things
(Monday night), especially from the
bench, which scored 20 points for us.
When your bench can make that big
of a difference, that's a good sign."
Ophelia Wooden scored 10 points
for Marianna, while Laqueesha Da-
vis added nine.
Chasity McGriff also scored nine
points for Sneads.
But it,was another double-double
from Bass that proved the difference
for MHS, as the junior post has con-
tinued to have a breakout season for
the Lady Bulldogs.
"The last couple of games she's
been averaging 14-17 points and 14-

Indians remain perfect


Indians continue

to climb in the polls

BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com

The No. 7 Chipola Indians finished off
a perfect weekend at the Panhandle Clas-
sic on Saturday at the Milton H. Johnson
Health Center, routing the Central Florida
Patriots 80-60.
Jason Carter scored 22 points to lead
the Indians (11-0), while Joseph Uchebo
added 12 and Aishon White scored 12 on
4-for-4 shooting from the 3-point line.
The Indians now the No. 2 team
in the state behind Northwest Florida
State won their first two games of Hl
the Classic, 65-46 over Brevard, and 67-
45 over Miami-Dade, on Thursday and
Friday.
Chipola continued its dominant play in
the first half of Saturday's game, jumping --
out to a 38-18 lead at the break. ;
But the Indians' typically stingy defense
gave up 42 points in the second half, a
fact that coach Jake Headrick said was
uncharacteristic of his club.
"I thought for five out of the six halves,
we played pretty good basketball," he
said. "In the second'half against Central
Florida, I think maybe we were a little
fatigued from playing' three pretty good
teams in three days. I thought maybe we.
were just ready to get it over with. We just
sort of got through it.
"To give up 42 points in the second half,
for us.. defensively, we've been holding
teams to around 50 per game total. To give
up that many, that's just a lot of points."

Lady Indians make it three in a row

BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com

After losing three games in a row last month,
the No. 17 Chipola Lady Indians made it three
wins in a row after taking two more over the
weekend in Ocala.
Chipola (9-3) currently ranked No. 4 in the
state took its second consecutive win over
Central Florida on Friday, winning 66-61, and
then routed Florida State College at Jacksonville
75-52 on Saturday. -
In Friday's game, Jellpah Sidney had 14 points
and 11 rebounds for Chipola, while Sara Djassi
also had a double-double with 10 points and 10
rebounds.
Kristine Brance added 10 points for the Lady
Indians, and O'Neal Session had 12 points, six a i ii I
rebounds and four blocked shots.
Chipola coach David Lane said both games had ., .
encouraging trends for the Lady Indians.
"We still have had some bad stretches during
games, but the good stretches are getting better
and getting more frequent, so that's good," he
said. "The positive part is there really hasn't been
a lot we've had to tell them. We talk about it and
they just respond a lot better."
Lane was hard on his team early on and es-
pecially after it's three-game losing streak last
month in a tournament in Midland, Tex., ques-
tioning the group's decision making and focus.
But the coach said that he has been verypleased
with the way his players have responded to the
challenge.
"They were not happy with the way they played
during that three-game stretch," he said. "They
realize that they need to change and they've _

Raiders continue to


dominate at MERE


BY SHELIA MADER
Floridan Correspondent

Football action continued
last week at Optimist Park, with
the Pee Wee tackle league con-
tinuing to be dominated by the
undefeated Raiders.
On Tuesday, the Raiders de-
feated the Titans 13-6 before
taking a 12-6 win over the Jag-
uars on Saturday.
In Saturday's game the Raid-
ers had to come from behind,
with the Jaguars scoring first
on a turnover in the red zone.
The 6-0 Jaguar lead didn't
hold for long, as the Raiders
drove the distance for a game
tying touchdown that con-
sumed the majority of the sec-
ond quarter.
The Raiders' touchdown run
by Isaac Smith was set up on a
fourth and long 25-yard pass
reception by Brady Donaldson
to keep the drive alive.
One play later, Smith found
the end zone to tie the game.
Defense was the key in the
third quarter, with neither
team crossing the goal line.
The Raiders maintained the
ball for the majority of the
fourth quarter, with a 12-yard
touchdown run by Caleb Tor-
bett capping off the drive to
put the Raiders ahead 12-6.
Max Olds ended any threat


of a comeback by the Jaguars
on an interception with 46 sec-
onds left to play.
Following Saturday's game,
coach Rex Torbett said he was
pleased with his team's effort.
"Defensively we played solid
the whole game," he said. "Be-
sides a short field that we gave
them because of a turnover, we
held them in check.
"Blake Barber and Ben Wig-
gins played an awesome game
at the guard position. The
whole offensive line created
lanes for us to run the ball hard
all game. Blake Donaldson did
a good job at quarterback."
In Tuesday's match-up
against the Titans, the Raid-
ers had a 7-6 lead at the half
with Smith scoring the first
touchdown;
Late in the second half, it
was Smith again in for the
touchdown.
Torbett praised his team fol-
lowing the game.
"Offensively, Isaac (Smith)
was the workhorse, and the de-
fense did a good job all night,"
he said. "Besides a long run by
Decarian Sims, we held them in
check. Austin Moody and Ben
Wiggins did a great job at the
defensive end position. Elijah
Peterson and Jaheim Jackson
did well at the defensive tackle
position."

18 rebounds per game," Brown said. "The
big issue for us is we've got to work on our
guards. When we had trouble with Malo-
ne and Walton, it was because we didn't
do a good job of getting her the ball.
"When we get'her the ball, we do well.
But other teams realize that and they
pressure our guards. We just need them
to calm 'down and relax. The offense
starts with (Bass) and then we kick out.
If we can't get it to her, it throws off our
offense."
Marianna will be off until Tuesday
when it goes on the road to take on Mos-
ley, while Sneads was scheduled to play
Tuesday night in Graceville against the
Lady Tigers before finishing the week at

Shorter NBA schedule has


42 back-to-back-to-backs


The Associated Press

NEW YORK The Los
Angeles Lakers will play
games on the first three
nights of the NBA season,
the first of 42 back-to-
back-to-back sets teams
will face during this lock-
out-shortened season.
The NBA announced
the compacted, 66-game
schedule on Tuesday
night, one that will require


every team to play on three
consecutive nights at least
once.
The league's 66th season
begins with five games on
Christmas, including the
Lakers hosting the Chicago
Bulls.
Teams will play48 confer-
ence games and 18 against
the opposing conference,
meaning they play only
three nonconference op-
ponents home and away.


SPORTS


The league did preserve its
most storied rivalry, with
the Lakers traveling to Bos-
ton for a Feb. 9 matchup
before the Celtics open a
stretch of eight road games
in 13 nights in March with
games on back-to-back
nights at Staples Center.
Dallas and Miami also
will play twice, following
their Christmas NBA finals
rematch with a March 12
game in Miami.

College Football


Big East set to expand


SThe Associated Press

NEW YORK The Big East's long-
awaited additions are set, with more re-
building to come.
The conference is preparing to an-
nounce the additions of Boise State and
San Diego State as football-only mem-
bers and Houston, Central Florida and
SMU for all sports as soon as Wednes-
day, a person with knowledge of the situ-
ation told The Associated Press. The five
schools will join in 2013.
The person spoke Tuesday on condi-
tion of anonymity because details were
still being worked out with the schools
and plans for an announcement were
being completed.
The Big East has been trying to rebuild
as a 12-school football conference since
Syracuse and Pittsburgh announced they
would be moving to the ACC and West
Virginia announced it was leaving for
the Big 12. TCU also reneged on a com-
mitment to join the Big East and instead
accepted an invite to the Big 12.
The Big East has also been pursu-
ing Navy and Air Force as football-only
members, but the military academies


are. not yet ready to commit to the con-
ference, the person said.
While the Big East is finally about to ex-
pand, it's still very much a league in flux.
Commissioner John Marinatto has
pledged to hold Syracuse, Pittsburgh
and West Virginia to the league bylaws
and keep the schools in the Big East for
two more football seasons. Syracuse, Pitt
and the ACC have said they would like to
move on as soon as possible, but are not
challenging the Big East's rules.
West Virginia is. The school has sued
the Big East and wants to join the Big 12
in 2012. The Big 12 needs a replacement
for Missouri, which next year is headed
to the Southeastern Conference, to have
the 10 members it needs to meet the
conditions of its television contracts.
The Big East is in an even trickier situ-
ation. It has contract requirements to
meet next season, as well, plus it will be-
gin negotiating a new TV deal in 2012.
Houston, SMU and UCF play in Con-
ference USA and the notification date for
those schools to switch leagues next year
has passed. Boise State is in its first sea-
son as a member of the Mountain West
Conference,

Dear Annie: I could have written that
letter from "Sick of It," who doesn't want
her husband to approach her for sex.
Combine post-menopausal me with my
husband's health problems and medi-
cations, and you could have a dreary
sex life, except for one thing: I love my
husband so much that even though sex is
not as magical as it used to be, I cher-
ish every moment of closeness we have
together. Even though I don't always feel
like it, I jump at the chance to be inti-
mate. Love is about the other person, not
yourself. Sex should not be an obligation,
but a fulfillment of the promise made by
a husband and a wife. ,
BRING IT ON

Dear Bring: We wish more women
would emulate your attitude, although
we know it can be difficult. And too many
women wrote to insist that having sex
when you aren't in the mood is akin to
rape. It is NOT. Read on for more:
. From California: I was outraged by your
answer to "Sick of It." I have a husband

Bridge


There are deals that require bravery because
if things go wrong, they go very wrong. What
should South do here? He is in three no-trump,
andWest leads the club queen. North is right to
raise immediately to three no-trump. If he had
a low singleton club and his ace in either major,
there would be a much stronger case for show-
ing his diamond suit, because three no-trump
might fail with five or six diamonds laydown.
South starts with seven top tricks: one spade,
three hearts, one diamond and two clubs. The
extra tricks will have to come from diamonds.
But now that the club ace has evaporated, there
isn't a dummy entry left.
At trick two, declarer should lead a low dia-
mond from the board. If East has king-double-
ton, he might nervously take the trick with his
majesty. Or he might pause so long that he
gives the game away.
Here, though, East wins with his nine and
returns a club. South takes his king, plays an-
other diamond, and bravely calls for dummy's
queen.
When the finesse wins, declarer collects 11'
tricks. But if East could produce the diamond
king, the contract would probably go down
three a difference of five tricks!


tency problems. That did not stop him
from wanting to play with all the bells
and whistles, push all the buttons and
then say "Oops, that's all:" Meanwhile,,
I was hot and bothered with no relief.
Finally, I made him understand that
all that groping was not welcome. True
intimacy at our age comes from love and
tenderness. Now.we cuddle. He is sad
that sex has disappeared, but love is full
of compromises.
"lorida: A lot of women think the lack
of sex in their marriage is perfectly fine.
They decide they don't need it anymore,
so their husbands don't need it, either;
I wonder how many of those women
would like to have their husbands visit-
ing prostitutes, watching porn or having
affairs. Intimacy is part of marriage, and
if they aren't willing to participate, they
shouldn't get upset when the husband
finds someone else.
Kentucky: I don't get why a man insists
on continuing to attempt something his
body is clearly no longer up to. He gets
frustrated. I get groped and bored. I want
him to stop pestering me.

Something's fishy

Marlins becoming big players at baseball's winter meetings


The Associated Press
DALLAS No more
little low-budget Marlins.
Miami's team hopes to be-
come baseball's Big Fish.
"I want our team to be
important," owner Jeffrey
Loria said Monday as the
winter meetings opened.
"It's an energy city, and
I think that's one of the
things that brings the play-
ers there. They see the
energy."
Making the first big
splashes, the Marlins com-
pleted a $27 million, three-
year contract with Heath
Bell a day after reaching
a preliminary agreement
on a $106 million, six-year
deal with Jose Reyes.
Who will be the next big
name migrating to South
Florida: Albert Pujols? C.J.


Wilson? Mark Buehrle?
Pujols, who already
has toured the new ball-
park, would join Hanley
Ramirez, Mike Stanton and
Logan Morrison in the bat-
ting order if the three-
time NL MVP is willing to
leave the St. Louis Cardi-
nals, the only major league
team he's played for.
"One big hitter?" Loria
said out loud, his 2003
World Series ring flash-
ing from his hand. "Well, I
don't know about that, but
there's a possibility of an-
other player or two we're
looking at."
Morrison, among others,
was wondering.
"Just out of surgery. Ev-
erything went well," he
wrote on Twitter after a
minor knee operation,
adding: "Have we signed


Pujols yet??"
On the mound, Wilson
or Buehrle could be added
to a rotation that includes
Josh Johnson (if healthy),
Ricky Nolasco, Anibal San-
chez and Chris Volstad.
While the Marlins are be-
ing aggressive, traditional
big spenders such as the
New York Yankees and
Boston Red Sox are mov-
ing cautiously, both with
free agents and in the trade
market.
"This isn't the old seat-
of-the-pants, you know,
get drunk in the lobby and
write names on a napkin
type," Yankees general
manager Brian Cashman
said shortly after arriving
at the meetings. "You won't
conduct business that way
anymore. They just don't."
As the four-day swap ses-


Miami Marlins, previously the Florida Marlins (from left) owner Jeffrey Loria, Anibal Sanchez,
Gaby Sanchez,Ozzie Guillen, Ricky Nolasco, Josh Johnson and Hanley Ramirez in their team's
new uniforms, with the new logo and name, during an unveiling in Miami.


sion began, the'first piece
of formal business was the
annual meeting of the Hall'
of Fame Vqterans Commit-
tee, which elected late Chi-
cago Cubs third baseman
Ron Santo.
He'll be inducted in Coo-
perstown on July 22, along
with any players elected


by members of the Base-
ballWriters' Association of
America on Jan. 9.
Pujols and Prince Field-
er are the big bats on the
market, and it remains
unclear whether Pujols is
willing to leave the World
Series champions, where
he's joined Stan Musial as a


franchise icon.
"I always use the word
hopeful," Cardinals chair-
man Bill DeWitt Jr. said.
"I think it's presumptive
to say that I'm optimistic
because we obviously have
continuing discussions
and have a good dialogue
going."


Packers sell stock 2012 C016 KIDS eST WINNS


The Associated Press
MADISON, Wis. The
Green Bay Packers have
an MVP candidate in quar-
terback Aaron Rodgers, a
Super Bowl championship
won just 10 months ago
and an undefeated team
making a run toward an-
other title for Titletown.
The Packers now have
hundreds of new owners,
too.
The team kicked off a
rare stock sale Tuesday to
help pay for another round
of renovations at Lambeau
Field, giving pretty much
anyone a shot at becoming
an NFL owner for $250 per
share, plus a $25 handling
charge.
Sarah Johnson, 34, of Por-
tage said it took her nearly
20 minutes to complete
what should have been a
30-second process, but it
was worth to wait.
"I could have just as well
thrown my money out the
window for what I get for
it, other than a feel-good,"
she said. "I just feel like the
Packer organization has


sort of a nostalgia ard an
excitement around it other
franchises don't have. Just
to say you're part of that on
some level is neat to me."
The team received 1,600
orders in the first 11 min-
utes of the sale, said Pack-
ers-President Mark Mur-
phy, who had to reassure
fans the Packers website
was still working. Team
spokesman Aaron Popkey
said he did not have any
sales data as of early Tues-
day afternoon.
"It's just a question of vol-
ume," Murphy said. "Fans
are excited about this op-
portunity. We just encour-
age fans to be patient."
It is the fifth stock sale in
the Packers' 92-year histo-
ry and the first in 14 years.
The NFL's only pub-
licly-owned team offered
250,000 shares through
Feb. 29, subject to an ex-
tension. The stock isn't an
investment in the tradi-
'tional sense.
Its value doesn't increase,
there are no dividends,
it has virtually no re-sale
value.
