From staff reports
An Altha woman was
arrested after Marianna

smoking pipe, prescrip-
tion pills and stolen items
from Family Dollar during
a traffic stop.
Laurie Jones was charged


with retail theft, posses-
sion of drug
parapher-
nalia and
two counts
of posses-
-sion of a
controlled
substance.
Jones Jones and


her daughter were pulled
over on Dec. 7, for a dam-
aged windshield and not
wearing a seatbelt.
The officer ran Jones'
license and discovered
that Jones was on proba-
tion for marijuana with a
special condition of sub-
mit to search. Jones per-


mitted the officer to search
the car and several unpaid
items from the Family Dol-
lar were reportedly found
there.
Police reported that a
silver and green smoking
pipe with marijuana resi-
due in it was also found
behind the center console.


Inside a silver snakeskin
purse, several household
items were found along
with a green pill bottle con-
taining Clonazepam and
Alprazolam, two Schedule
4 prescriptions.
Police say Jones' daugh-
ter said the unopened
items were stolen from


the Family Dollar East. Ac-
cording to a receipt, only
$16.05 worth of items were
paid for.
The items were collected
and given back to Fam-
ily Dollar East, who calcu-
lated that $110.14 worth
of the items had not been
paid for.


RIBBON CUTTING



Renovations to Cottondale



Village Apartments complete


BY LAUREN DELGADO
Id liJljo3d,':ll':rinrjn ic'm

The completion of the $5 million ren-
ovations of Cotondale Village Apart-
ments, a housing complex in Marianna
for low-income families, was marked
with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on
Thursday.
The apartment's manager, Royal
American Development, received fund-
ing and aid through the Florida Hous-
ing Finance Corporation. USDA Rural
Development and the U.S. Depart-
ment of Housing and Urban Develop-
ment. This was a part of all the entities
commitment to provide safe, afford-
able housing to low-income families,
said Kim Murphy, the Vice President of
Royal American Development.
"Everyone deserves a place to live,"
Murphy said.
The first 50 units of the apartments
were constructed in 1978 with the fi-
nal 32 units built in 1982. Because of
the age of the buildings and natural
wear and tear, the time had come for
some improvements to be made on the
apartments, said Murphy. She also said
that like much bf Florida, there was no
need to build new units, only update
the existing ones.
"There was an opportunity to rejuve-
nate it," Murphy said.
Murphy said it took about two years
for the applications to be approved
and the construction to be completed.
Crews renovated the apartments one
building at a time, with the displaced
residents temporarily moving into a
building set aside for them.
The apartments have all-new roofs.
floors, kitchen cabinets and counter-
tops. Besides the aesthetic changes,
a number of energy efficient fea-
tures were added to the homes. The

Dairy Queen in Marianna opened its ';
doors to the public for the first time on.
Thursday, attracting over 200 customers
within two-and-a-half hours of opening
with its blizzards, burgers,, Orange Julius
and more.
"We had people waiting at the door this
morning," said VictoriaWilliams, assistant
manager.
At one point, Williams said, a cash reg-
ister had to be shut down so employees
could go help with food preparation.
The most popular meal items of the day
were two manager specials the quarter
pounder with cheese combo and the dou-
ble cheeseburger combo. As for the bliz-
zards, although the blizzard of the month
"Candy Cane Chill" was popular, the Oreo
blizzard remains the most popular frozen MARKSKINNER/FLORIDAN

Man


charged


with drug


possession

From staff reports
A Sneads man was arrested after po-
lice found hydrocodone in his pocket
during a traffic stop.
Andrew Parramore was charged with
possession of a controlled substance.
The officer pulled Par-
ramore over because his
blue and orange mo-
torcycle did not have
tags or lights on it. After
speaking to Parramore,
the officer discovered he
Parramore did not have 4 driver's
license or motorcycle
endorsement.
During a pat search of Parramore, the
officer felt what he thought might be
a firearm in a front pants pocket, but
it turned out to be a pull cord for the
motorcycle. According to the officer,
Parramore looked nervous throughout
the exchange. The officer reported that
he then asked Parramore to empty his
pockets and Parramore attempted to
conceal an item that had been in his left
pants pocket.
Parramore allegedly admitted the
items were two Lortab pills and gave
them to the officer. The pills were sent
to the Florida Department of Law
Enforcement for analysis.

Movement of Judaism.
whose rabbis aie prohib-
ited from shaving their

' "I felt this was my call-
ing," Stern said of the
chaplaincy.
-,The' rabbi saw an ad-
vertisement in late 2008
Sfor military chaplains arid
attended a recruiter's pre-
seniation. After consulting
with his wife, he decided
to apply in January 2009,
making clear in his appli-
Scation he intended to keep
his beard.
"Although we adapted
to the modern world, we
still.. ri'aintain. old-world
values," he wrote. "By not

resent the unadulterated

Some Orthodox Jews
-don't:shave, -believing it's
outlawed by, a .passage
in the Book o6fLeviticus:
"Do .no clip, your hair at

he filed -later, Stem was
alerted by both email and
letter that he had been ac-
cepted. When he first got
word,, he said-he jumped

he said.
Stern has ministered
in prisons, hospitals and

bis to:, serve as military

The two sides reached,a
settlement Nov. 22 allow-
ing Stern to serve. Obsery-
ers say it is just the second


time ever and first in
more than 30 years that
a bearded Jewish rabbi has
been granted an exemp-
tion to serve as a military
chaplain.,
Army regulations require
men to be clean-shaven
except for neatly trimmed
mustaches apart of along

that dictate everything
from fingernail length- to .

,from another rabbi in the
1970s, a handful of'Sikh

emptions from the beard
ban in recent years. Addi-
tionally, it notes; members
of the Special Forces are
routinely granted exemp-
tions, purportedly for mis-
sions in the Arab world,
where a beard could allow
a soldier to blend in.
The Army says, all told,
five exemptions to its,
grooming policies have
been granted since 2009.

on the specific settlement

said any such'request is
dealt with on a case-by-

"Each accommodation

said.

Nominee to head financial agency blocked


The Associated Press

WASHINGTON The
new watchdog agency
designed to shield con-
sumers from the excesses
behind the 2008 financial
crisis lost a shot Thursday
at operating at full strength
as the latest partisan bat-
tle to paralyze Congress
snarled the White House's
nominee.
Senate Republicans
were near unanimous in
voting to block a former
Ohio attorney general,
Richard Cordray, from
becoming director of an
agency they said had too
much power and too little
accountability.
They said that until the
Obama administration
agrees to changes at the
Consumer Financial Pro-
tection Bureau, they will
keep blocking President
Barack Obama's pick from
taking charge.
Democrats framed the.
standoff in political terms,
saying Republicans want-
ed to gut an agency created
to look out for consumer
interests.
"Cordray and consum-
er protection are being
blocked simply because
Republicans want to pro-
tect Wall Street," said Sen.
Robert Menendez, D-~N.J.
The vote to overcome the
GOP filibuster was 53-45,
seven short of the 60 need-


THEASSOCIATED PRESS FILE PHOTO

nominee to serve as the first director of the Consumer

Richard Cordray, are seen in the Rose Garden of the White
House in Washington.


ed to advance the nomina-
tion. One Republican, Sen.
Scott Brown of Massachu-
setts, joined Democrats in
support of Cordray. Sen.
Olympia Snowe, R-Maine,
voted "present."
While the agency official-
ly began business in July,
the deadlock limits what
it can do. It can oversee
existing bank regulations.
But without a director, it
cannot issue new ,rules
dealing with nonbank en-
tities such as payday lend-
ers, private student loan
providers and, mortgage
services that have been


the source of predatory
lending practices.
SRaj Date, a special advis-
er to the treasury secretary,
said the bureau is "already
hard at work, helping to fix
broken consumer finan-
cial markets." But, he said,
"we are only able to super-
vise banks, not any of the
nonbank companies that
were responsible for many
of the most problematic
products, and practices
leading up to the financial
crisis."
Obama said after the vote
that there was no reason to
deny Cordray the top spot.


He did not rule out a recess
appointment, whereby a
president makes a tempo-
rary appointment to a gov-
ernment post when Con-
gress is not in session.
Republicans this year
have been successful
in stopping the White
House from making such
appointments.
Sen. Chuck Schumer,
D-N.Y., said the president
"should do everything
within his powers to get
Mr. Cordray on board."
The agency was a cen-
terpiece of the financial
overhaul bill signed into
law last year. Republicans
largely opposed that leg-
islation and have since
sought to change some of
its provisions. They dis-
missed Democratic claims
that they were favoring
Wall Street over Main Street'
in blocking the highly re-
garded Cordray, now serv-
ing as enforcement chief at
the bureau.
There's no disagreement,
.said Sen. Richard Shelby,
R-Ala., about the need to
bolster consumer protec-
tione. "The only real point
of contention is whether
the new bureau of con-
sumer financial protection
will be accountable to the
American people," said
Shelby, the top Republican
on the Senate Banking,
Housing and Urban Affairs
Committee.


GOP hopes for agreement on payroll tax cut


The Associated Press

WASHINGTON The Senate re-
jected dueling Democratic and Re-.
publican plans for extending the
Social Security payroll tax on Thurs-
day as partisan skirmishing contin-
ued over a cornerstone of President
Barack Obama's plan for breath-
ing life back into the American job
market..
The votes demonstrated both par-
ties' inability to.prevail in the Senate
over how to renew the payroll tax re-
duction and left the spotlight on the
GOP-run House,
There, House Speaker John Boeh-
ner said Thursday he's confident
that Republicans are ready to move
on legislation continuing a payroll
tax cut, but the GOP remained on a
collision course with Obama over a
side issue.-
Republicans want to couple, con-
tinuation of the Social Security
payroll tax cut with a provision that
would assure construction' of an oil


pipeline from Canada to Texas-- a
move Obama has said would lead to
a veto.
The president, speaking to report-
ers at the White House Thursday,
said Congress must act on the pay-
roll tax cut before leaving for the
holidays and said he wduld delay his
Hawaiian vacation and stay inWash-
ington "as long as it takes" to win
extensions. of the payroll tax cut and
jobless benefits for the long-term
unemployed.
"I do not expect Congress to go
home unless the payroll tax cut is ex-
tended and unless unemployment
insurance is extended." Obama said.
"It would be wrong for families, but
it would also be wrong for the econi-
omy as a whole."
Meanwhile, Boehner, R-Ohio,
told reporters that "I feel confident
in our ability to move ahead" after
GOP leaders previewed legislation to
extend the payroll tax cuts and un-
employment benefits in a meeting
of the rank and file Thursday morn-


ing. He said the party would.aim for
a vote next week.
The measure has been in the draft-
ing stage for more than a week, as
Boehner and other leaders sought to
coax lawmakers to support a payroll
tax cut extension. Critics of that leg-
islation have said they don't believe
payroll tax relief helps create jobs,
but even some of them conceded
that House leaders seem to have
won enough support to prevail.
"I think they've got the votes for
it," said conservative Rep. Jeff Flake,
R-Ariz., who attributed much of the
momentum to a GOP desire to con-
front Obama over the oil pipeline.
The House GOP bill-- which is still
being put into final form would
also gradually reduce the current
maximum of 99 weeks of coverage
for the long-term unemployed to 57
weeks while giving states the right to
use some of their federal unemploy-
ment funds for experimental pro-
grams like job training, Republican
participants said.


Republican: Heads must roll in Fast and Furious


The Associated Press.

WASHINGTON Re-
publican lawmakers told
Attorney General Eric
Holder on Thursday to fire
some Justice Department
subordinates over the
flawed arms-trafficking in-
vestigation called Opera-
tion Fast and Furious.
At a House Judiciary
Committee hearing, Rep.
Jim Sensenbrenner of Wis-
consin said impeachment
is an option if Holder does
not "clean up this mess"
quickly.
Sensenbrenner and oth-
er Republicans hold the
attorney general respon-
sible for the operation, in.
which federal agents failed
to track illicitly purchased
weapons that were later
recovered in Mexico and
the U.S., many of them at
crime scenes.
"If you don't get to the
bottom of this, there is
only one alternative, and
it's called impeachment,"
said Sensenbrenner, with-
out specifying whom he
had in mind.
"Why haven't you ter-
minated the people in-
volved?" asked Rep. Darrell
Issa, R-Calif., who chairs
the House Oversight and
Government Reform Com-
mittee that is investigating
the arms-tracking opera-
tion. Issa pressed Holder
to appear before the con-
gressman's committee
and the attorney general
said he would consider the
request.
Issa said that the Justice
Department has turned
over 5,000 emails to the
committee about Opera-
tion Fast and Furious, but

Attorney General .for the Office of Legislative Affairs at

committee's document re-
quests has been "fulsome."


arms and Explosives to
use a controversial tactic
known as "gun-walking"
in its effort to identify and
prosecute major arms traf-
ficking networks along the
Southwest border. The Jus-
tice Department has long
prohibited the tactic.
The operation's goal was
to follow the gun supply
chain from small-time
gun buyers at a number of
Phoenix-area gun shops
and make cases against
major weapons traffick-
ers. In the process, federal
agents lost track of many of
the more than 2,000 guns
linked to the operation.


Hiring outlook


brightens as


jobless claims fall


The Associated Press

WASHINGTON A
steady decline in the num-
ber of people applying for
weekly unemployment
benefits is the latest sig-
nal that the economy has
strengthened and busi-
nesses may be poised to
step up hiring.
Applications fell last
week fell to a season-
ally adjusted 381,000,
the Labor Department
said Thursday. That's the
lowest level since late
February.
And afour-week average
for applications, which
smooths week-to-week
fluctuations, fell for the
ninth time-in 11 weeks to
an eight-month low.
The downward trend in
unemployment benefit
applications bolsters the
view that the economy
has improved from its
spring slump, when many
feared another recession
was likely. Consumer
confidence is up, retailers
reported a strong start to
the holiday shopping sea-
son and the uinemploy-
ment rate fell last month
to its lowest point in two
and a half years.
"There have been nu-
merous indications that
the labor market is healing
and today's jobless claims
report only reinforces that
view," Dan Greenhaus,
chief global strategist at
BTIG, a trading firm.
lan Shepherdson, chief
U.S. economist at High
Frequency Economics,
said the drop in unem-
ployment benefit claims
reflects relief among busi-


nesses that consumer de-
mand didn't plunge this
fall as some had feared.
"We expect claims to
head slowly downwards
for the foreseeable future,
and in due course payroll
growth will accelerate,"
Shepherdson said in a
note to clients.
Applications that drop
below 375,000 consis-
tently- tend to correlate
with a steady decline in
the unemployment rate.
The unemployment
rate fell to 8.6 percent in
November, the govern-
ment said last week, down
from 9 percent the previ-
ous month. Still, the rate
dropped last month in
part because morb people
gave up looking for work.
Once the unemployed
stop looking for jobs and
drop out of the workforce,
they are no longer count-
ed as unemployed.
Employers added a net
total of 120,000.jobs last
month. The economy
has generated 100,000 or
more jobs five months
,in a row the first time
that has happened since
April 2006. Many econo-
mists expect growth to ac-
celerate in the final three
months of the year, to
about a 3 percent annual
rate. That would be an
improvement from 2 per-
cent growth in the July-
September period.
SFewer people are receiv-
ing unemployment ben-
efits, and the number of
people on extended ben-
efits also fell. But econo-
mists think most have
likely used up all their
benefits.

Amazing Grace



Hunger, homelessness haunt holidays this year


BY DAVID YOUNT
Scripps Howard News Service.

during the nation's count-
down to Christmas this
year, joyful bell-ringers
are outnumbered by dour hand-
wringers, whose response to
hard times consists of statistics
of jobless Americans and fami-
lies evicted from their homes.
Unemployment rates and
mortgage defaults are con-
venient measuring sticks for
Americans' pain. But there are
other signs of the times that cut
even closer to the heart: home-
lessness and hunger.
For example, theAssociation
of Gospel Rescue Missions,
surveying 19,000 homeless


Americans in 114 local missions,
reports that more than one-
S third of people
experiencing
homelessness on
a given night are
homeless for the
first time in their
David lives.
Yount SingleAmeri-
cans represent
the largest
population (86 percent of those
surveyed) served by the mis-
sions, but women with children
are the most frequently assisted
family unit (52 percent of total
families). Half of the homeless
aided by the missions are white,
while 43 percent are African-
American or Hispanic.


Nearly one in five Americans
experiencing homelessness
reports being a victim of physi-
cal violence, an increase of 6
percent over last year.
"It's not uncommon for the
stress of personal economic
woes to trigger anger and ag-
gressive behavior," says AGRM
president John Ashmen. "Some
public figures like to give the
impression that government
programs are curbing homeless-
ness and hunger," he said, but
"we certainly aren't seeing it."
As the recession wears on,
Sam Dillon in The New York
Times reports, "Millions of
American, schoolchildren
are receiving free or low-cost
meals for the first time, as their


parents, many once solidly
middle-class, have lost jobs or
homes during the economic
crisis, qualifying their families
for the decades-old safety-net
program."
SStudents receiving subsidized
lunches rose to 21' million in the
last school year, a 17 percent
increase since 2006-07. The
U.S. Department of Education
reports that 52 percent of the
nation's fourth-graders receive
assistance from Department of
Agriculture programs.
Schoolchildren in families
making up to 130 percent of
the poverty level ($29,055 for a
family of four) are eligible for
free school meals. Students in
four-member households with


income up to $41,348 qualify for
subsidized 40-cent lunches.
In parts of the nation, subsi-
dizing lunches fails to guaran-
tee that children will get three
meals a day. The Times reports
that in Dallas, Newark, N.J., and
Chicago, for example, 85 per-
cent of students are eligible for
subsidized meals. Most of their
schools offer free breakfasts as
well. Some, fearing that chil-
dren would otherwise go to bed
hungry, also serve their students
a free supper. ,
It may not be miraculous
loaves and fishes, but at least it's
something real.

Southern Baptists consider a possible name change


The Associated Press

NASHVILL, Tenn.
- What if Southern Bap-
tists were no longer called
Southern Baptists? Would


more people walk through
church doors?
A task force asked to
study that question made
its recommendation to
Southern Baptist Con-


vention President Bryant
Wright on Wednesday, but
it won't be public until
an executive committee
meeting in February.
Wright would not say


whether new names have
been proposed for the
nation's largest Protestant
denomination, but he has.
said the word "Baptist" will
remain.


Although it is unknown
what the task force rec-
ommended, the panel is
weighted toward people
involved in planting new:
churches.


Any change would have
to pass a vote of the del-
egates to the denomina-
tion's general conven-
tion over two consecutive
years.

Palestinians' statehood bid part of Christmas


The Associated Press

BETHLEHEM, West Bank At
Christmas time the world looks
to Jesus' traditional birthplace
of Bethlehem, and this year the
Palestinians hope to use some of
that attention to boost their quest
for independence.
They're trying to be subtle about
it, with just a hint of politics in
this year's Christmas slogan, "Pal-
estine celebrating hope," a veiled
reference to their bid this fall to
win U.N. recognition of a Pales-
tinian state.
Organizers say they didn't want
to be overtly political for fear of
putting off foreign pilgrims in
search of a religious experience.,
Some 90,000 foreign visitors are
expected to throng the Church of
the Nativity and adjacent Manger
Square in December, including
50,000 during Christmas week.
"We want to use this opportu-
nity to convey a message to the
world that we have hope of hav-
ing our owr independent state
and we need the international
support for that," said Palestin-
ian Tourism Minister Khouloud
Daibes. "Since Christmas is a re-
ligious occasion, we can't use di-
rect political slogans."
Volunteers will distribute post-
cards with the Christmas motto
hn the courtyard of the Church
of'the Nativity, built over the
grotto where tradition'says Jesus
was born. Visitors can then mail
them at the Manger Square post,
office, using Palestinian stamps,
another symbol of the state in tle
making.

community has repeatedly urged
Israel to halt construction.
After Christmas, Abbas' gov-
ernment also plans to seek U.N.
recognition of Bethlehem as a
world heritage site, following ac-
ceptance of Palestine as a mem-
ber of the world body's cultural
agency, UNESCO. The successful
UNESCO membership bid fur-

which accused Abbas of trying to

lion in Palestinian tax refunds.
* This year, the number of foreign
visitors is expected to be up about
10 percent from last year, mainly
because more pilgrims are com-
ing from Russia and Poland, new
markets for the Palestinian tour-
ism industry, officials said.
Local Christians, say they have
no problem with politicizing the
holiday, saying the conflict affects
everyone's lives here.

A police officer secures the scene where a gunman killed a police officer and another person
after a traffic stop Thursday on the campus of Virginia Tech, in Blacksburg, Va.



Va. Tech locks down



after two killed


The Associated Press

BLACKSBURG, Va. A man killed a
police officer and another person after
a traffic stop Thursday at Virginia Tech,
sending a shudder through campus as
students and faculty were told to stay in-
side and police searched for the gunman,
school officials said.
It was the first gunfire on campus since
33 people were killed in 2007 in the dead-
liest mass shooting in modern U.S. his-
tory. The deaths came on the same day
university officials were in Washington
appealing a fine that federal officials gave
them over the school's response five years
ago;
The campus was swarming Thurs-
day with heavily armed officers walking
around campus. Caravans of SWAT vehi-
cles and other police cars with emergency
lights flashing patrolled nearby. Students
hunkered down in buildings.
"A lot of people, especially toward the
beginning were scared," Brumfield said.
"A lot of people are loosening up now. I
guess we're just waiting it out, waiting
for it to be over," said Jared Brumfield, a
19-year-old freshman from Culpeper, Va.,
who was locked in the Squires Student
Center since around 1:30 p.m. .
The school said a police officer pulled
someone over for.a traffic stop and was
shot and killed. The shooter ran toward a
nearby parking lot, where a second per-
son was found dead.
Various alerts were sent out to students
and the university is sending updates,
about every 30 minutes, regardless of


whether they have any new information,
school spokesman Mark Owczarski said,
"We deployed them all, and we de-
ployed them immediately to get the word
out," he said.
The suspect was, described as a white
man wearing gray sweat pants, a gray hat
with neon green brim, a maroon hoodie
and backpack.
"It's crazy that someone would go and
do something like that with all the stuff
that happened in 2007," said Corey Smith,
a 19-year-old sophomore from Mechan-
icsville, Va., who was headed to a dining
hall near the site of one of the shootings.
He told The Associated Pres that he
Stayed inside after seeing the alerts from
the school. "It's just weird to think about
why someone would do something like
this when the school's had so many prob-
lems," Smith said.
Harry White, 20, a junior physics ma-
jor, said he was in line for a sandwich at a
restaurant in a campus building when he
received the text message alert.
White said he didn't panic, thinking in-
stead about a false alarm about a possible
gunman that locked down the campus in
August. White used an indoor walkway to
go to a computer lab in an adjacent build-
ing, where he checked news reports.
"I decided to just check to see how se-
rious it was. I saw it's actually someone
shooting someone, not something false,
something that looks'like a gun," White
said.
Campus was quieter than usual because
classes ended,Wednesday and students
were preparing for exams.


Ala. GOP leaders have second


thoughts on immigration


The Associated Press

MONTGOMERY, Ala.
- Alabama Republicans
who pushed through
the nation's toughest
law against illegal immi-
grants are having second
thoughts amid a backlash
from big business, fueled
by the embarrassing traf-
fic stops of two foreign
employees tied to the
state's prized Honda and
Mercedes plants.
The Republican attor-
ney general is calling for
some of the strictest parts
of it to be repealed.
Some Republican law-
makers say they now want
to make changes in the law
that was pushed quickly
through the legislature.
Gov. Robert Bentley,
who signed the law, said
he's contacting foreign ex-
ecutives to tell them they
and their companies are
still welcome in Alabama.
"We are not anti-foreign
companies. We are very
pro-foreign companies,"
he said.
Luther Strange, the at-
torney general who's de-
fending the law in court,
this week recommended
repealing sections that
make it a crime for an il-'
legal immigrant to fail to
carry registration docu-
ments and that require
public schools to collect
information on the immi-
gration status of students.
Both sections have been
put on hold temporarily
by a federal court.
Two foreign workers for
Honda and Mercedes were
recently stopped by police
for failing to carry proof of
legal residency. The cases
were quickly dropped, but
not without lots of inter-
national attention that
Alabama officials didn't
want.
One of the group% chal-
lenging the law in court
said the auto workers'
cases turned public
opinion.


Sandusky released on bail after sex abuse charges


The Associated Press

BELLEFONTE, Pa.-For-
mer Penn State assistant
football coach Jerry San-
dusky emerged from an
overnight jail stay Thurs-
day after posting bail on
new charges that he sexu-
ally abused two additional
boys, including one who
said Sandusky assaulted
him in his basement while
his cries for help went
unheeded.
Sandusky was driven
from a Pennsylvania coun-
ty jail to his home in the
back seat of a grey sedan in
the middle of a three-car
convoy. The former -coach
kept his gaze straight
ahead, clutching a manila
envelope, during the short
car ride.
He then went inside
without answering ques-
.tions from reporters.
Sandusky was arrested
Wednesday and charged
with 12 new child sex
abuse counts involving
two new alleged victims.
In all, he faces more than
50 charges. He has main-
tained his innocence.
Sandusky secured his
release using $200,000 in
real. estate holdings and
a $50,000- certified check
provided by his wife, Dor-
othy, according to online
court records. He will be
subject to electronic mon-
itoring under the terms of
his release.
Warden Edward DeSaba-
to said Sandusky was quiet
and cooperative during his
stay at the jail, where he
was one of the roughly 250
being held. Sandusky had
his own cell for the night,
a standard procedure for
new inmates, DeSabato
said.
The new allegations
against Sandusky were de-
tailed in grand jury report
released Wednesday that
alleges the former coach
used the charity he found-
_ed to gain access to at-risk


boys, then use gifts and
groom them for eventual
sexual contact.
In interviews follow-
ing his initial arrest last
month, Sandusky denied
sexually assaulting chil-
dren but acknowledged
showering and engaging in
"horseplay" with.them.
Sandusky's attorney, Jo-
seph Amendola, said in a
statement he, would dis-
cuss his client's .release
later Thursday.
The latest accusers are
the ninth and 10th alleged
victims described in grand
jury reports that claim
Sandusky befriended and
then molested boys he met
through The Second Mile
charity. A grand jury docu-
ment released Wednesday
echoed an earlier report,
saying Sandusky gave the
boys gifts while also mak-
ing sexual advances to-
ward them.
One of the'new accusers
said Sandusky kept him
in a basement bedroom
during overnight visits to
Sandusky's home, forced
him to perform sex acts
and assaulted him.


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Former Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky gets out of a
car in front of his State College, Pa., home on Thursday.


"The victim testified that
on at least one occasion he
screamed for help, know-,
ing that Sandusky's wife
was upstairs, but no one
ever came to help him,"
the grand jury report said.
Sandusky was charged
last month with abusing
eight boys, some on cam-
pus, over 15 years. Officials
say the allegations were
not immediately brought
to the attention of authori-
ties even though high-level
people at Penn State appar-
ently knew about them.

Tips for hassle-free holiday shopping


By the editors of Cohsumer Reports
H holiday shopping with
its long checkout lines,
sold-out must-haves,
credit-card snafus and gift-
wrapping marathons can
take its toll on even the'most
patient consumers.
The experts at Consumer Re-
ports Money Adviser compiled
their best shopping advice to
help shoppers get through their
gift lists in the smoothest and
least-costly way.
Come up with a number.
Decide how much you'll spend,
then add a bit more to that
figure. Surveys by the Consumer
Reports National Research Cen-
ter conducted before and after
the holidays havefound that
Americans typically spend more
. than they expected. After the
2009 holiday season, shoppers
said they spent $811 on average
16 percent more 'than they
had planned. In your spending


estimate,'include the holiday'
tips you give to service provid-
ers such as the house cleaner or
dog groomer, as well as gifts for
party hosts. (
2.'Plan your time. F6r.a more
efficient buying excursion,
shop alone. Night 6wls catch
the worm as often as early.
birds during December, when
many chain retailers extend
their hours and sometimes
offer "flash" in-store sales at
odddhours. For example, last
year 14 Macy's stores, mainly
in the northeast, were open 83
consecutive hours, from 7 a.m.
on Dec. 21 to 6 p.m. on Dec. 24,
While other outlets stayed open
,until 2 a.m. Toys 'R'Us stores had
a similar promotion,,opening at
6 a.m. on Dec. 21. Of course, the
Internet is open all the time.
3. Shop at highly rated retail-
ers. In Consumer Reports'
December report on where
to buy electronics, Amazon.
cor, BHPhotoVideo.com,..


Crutchfield.com, and Newegg.
com all received strong marks
across the board from readers
who responded to CR's an-
:nual electronics retailer survey.
Those four were also standouts
for shipping and home delivery.
Overall, online merchants did
better than walk-in retailers,
even for big-ticket items like
TVs. For walk-in stores, inde-
perdent retailers topped CR's
ratings. Apple Store, Costco and
Staples, also got high scores.
4. Try haggling. Just 13 percent
of the electronics shoppers in -
the survey said they tried hag-
gling for a better price at walk-in
stores. But those who did saved
an average of $82. Shoppers
saved a median of $105 on tele-
visions, $53 on digital cameras,
and $43 on DVD/Blu-ray play-
ers. Four in five hagglers suc-
cessfully negotiated the price of
their purchase at HHGregg, EC.
Richard & Son, and indepen-
dent walk-in stores. At Best Buy


and Sears, at least three in five
hagglers shaved dollars off the
prices they paid. Though few try,
online shoppers can also haggle
for a discount. CR's electron-
ics survey found that nearly
three of five were successful in
scoring a price break. A third of
them negotiated with a retailer
by phone vs. 29 percent through
e-mail messages and 13 percent
by online chat..
5. Pay with cash. Shoppers
who pay withcredit cards spend
more on holiday gifts than
those who don't, according to,
CR surveys. In the 2009 holiday,
season, those who used credit
cards spent an average of $896,
for gift purchases, consider-
ably above the total average gift
expenditure of $811. Stores don't
Shave to pay a transaction fee for
cash purchases, as they do with
debit and credit cards, so you
might be able to get a discount
if you pay with cash, particularly
on big-ticket items.


6. Ship Free. Online shoppers
can stay on budget by taking
advantage of free shipping of-
fers, many of'which are listed at
FreeShipping.org. The site also
sponsors Free Shipping Day
(wkw.freeshippingday.com)
- on December 16th-- one of
the last opportunities for online
shoppers to get free shipping
from popular retailers for deliv-
ery by December 24. Merchants
that have signed on include the
Apple Online store, Bed Bath &
Beyond, Cabela's, eBags, Kohl's,
Lands' End, REI, Zales, and Ghi-
rardelli and Godiva chocolatiers.
7. Think ahead and make r
returns easy. CR's holiday surveys
,have found that less than half of
adults usually give gift receipts,
half don't check a walk-in store's
return policy before buying, and
more than a third don't check
online retailers' policies. Includ-
ing.a gift receipt is a courtesy
for your gift recipients and most
retailers offer them.

Dealing with the disruptive personal habits of staff


BY DR.'JERRY OSTERYOUNG

H y ne ought to hold on
Sto one's heart; for if
one lets it go, one
soon loses control of the head
too." Friedrich Nietzsche
One of the most difficult
conversations a manager will
ever have with an employee
is when they have to address
personal habits like hygiene.
Many managers think this is
too personal to discuss, but you


just do not have the luxury of
looking the other way. Poor per-
sonal hygiene can
negatively impact
your business

environment dis-

how your cus-
tomers see your
business. Ignoring the problem
only rewards the behavior and


undermines your credibility as a
leader and a manager.
When-handling situations
like these, it is so important to.
talk about the behavior and not
the person. It is easier for the
employee to hear that a be-
havior must be changed rather
than the person has to change.
This approach is also much less
threatening to the employee.
My suggestion would be to in-
vite the employee to your office
arid ask them if it is a good time

to give them some "feedback."
During your discussion, you
need to be as direct as possible.
Getting straight to the point is
critical. Dancing around the
topic will just weaken the point
that you are trying to make. You
might say that their body odor
is affecting the business and
you feel sad bringing this up to
them, but it is very important
to them and the business. Do
not mention the complaints
you have gotten from their col-


leagues. Sharing that informa-
tion serves no useful purpose.
The employee will be embar-
rassed already and this would
just pile it on unnecessarily.
Before ending the conversa-
tion, you need to talk about .
how changing this behavior will
affect the entire organization
and what the ramifications will
be if they do not change. Jf it is
within the employee's control
to correct, they should be held
accountable for doing so.

EU weighs greater unity to save euro


The Associated Press

BRUSSELS The lead-
ers of Germany and
France are pushing their
European counterparts to
save the ambitious project
of continental unity that
grew from the ashes of
World War II.
At stake at the summit
in Brussels, which began
Thursday evening, is the
future of the euro, the sta-
bility of the global finan-
cial system and the bal-
ance of power in Europe.
To convince financial
markets that Europe's
economy-crushing debt
crisis is a one-time event,
countries will have to give
up significant powers,
such as some decisions on
borrowing and spending,
to a central authority.
President Nicolas Sar-
kozy and Chancellor
Angela Merkel need to
convince the other 15 eu-
rozone leaders'to agree to
a plan that would require
their governments to bal-
ance their budgets and ac-
cept automatic sanctions
if they don't.
That plan must be good
enough to convince the
European Central Bank
to intervene in the gov-
ernment bond markets in


a manner large enough
to stop the panic there,
said Paul De Grauwe, an
economics professor and
EU expert at the Catholic
University of Leuven, in
Belgium.
The European Central
Bank said it currently has
no plan to increase the
scale of its bond interven-
tions, which keep down
the borrowing costs of
weak countries like Italy
and Spain, as markets had
been hoping. Stocks and
the euro fell, while the
borrowing rates for Italy
and Spain skyrocketed.
ECB chief Mario Draghi
had hinted last week that
if governments agree to
tighter budget controls,
the central bank might
step up support. Analysts
said his comments on
Thursday served to keep
pressure on politicians to
reach a deal.
Merkel and Sarkozywant
to enshrine the tougher
budget oversight in a
treaty, either by changing
the existing EU treaty or
creating a new one for the
17 eurozone nations that
others could opt in to.
"Words alone are not be-
lieved anymore because
too often we did not live
up to our words," Merkel

told a rally of fellow Eu-
ropean conservatives in
Marseille, France, ahead
of the summit.
But huge divisions re-
main. Some countries re-
sist the idea of giving up
some of their control over
national budgets. Further-
more, the 10 EU countries
that don't use the euro are
worried about being left
out of important decision-
making if eurozone coun-
tries adopt a new treaty of
their own.
European Council Presi-
dent HermanVan Rompuy
and some smaller coun-
tries that have stuck to the
budget rules in the past,
meanwhile, are pushing
for much more intrusive


powers for European in-
stitutions to essentially
take over wayward states'
fiscal policies that even
France and Germany are
unlikely to accept.
David Cameron, Brit-
ain's prime minister, has
said he will defend his
country's interests at the
summit and demand safe-
guards in asked to amend
the EU treaty. He's worried
that new eurozone rules
could endanger London's
role as a global financial
center and weaken Brit-
ish economic links. How-
ever, arriving in Brussels,
Cameron said he would
support treaty change if
it helped the eurozone
emerge from the crisis.

gets win over

Walton
BY SHELIA MADER
Floridan Correspondent

The MariannaHigh School Soc-
cer team's five game losing streak
came to a halt Tuesday night, as
they picked up a 3-1 win on the
road against Walton.
For the key district game, Bull-
dogs coach Garyn Waller went
with forwards Forrest Sammons
and Cody Barfield.
Midfield was anchored down
by Seth Gilley, Angel Huyke, Mar-
quell Comer, and Jae Elliott.
Defending was JT Meadows,
Jesse McGowan, Lyle Phelps, and
David White, with Michael Mad-
er in net.
John Metzler came up one
short of a hat trick, as he tied
the game at one on a kick from
20 yards out early in the second
half of play on an assist from Nic
Helms.
With one minute before the
water break, it was again Metzler
giving Marianna 2-1 lead with
just 20 minutes to play.
Late in the second half, Mari-
anna was the beneficiary of a
deflection' by the Walton goalie
on a corner kick from Zac Davis
to make it a 3-1 game and put it
out of reach with only minutes.
remaining.
Mader recorded 29 saves on
38 attempts with eight missed
shots.
Austin Nelson came on in re-
lief in goal and recorded two
saves on three attempts with one
missed shot.
Following the game, Waller said
he was more than happy to pick
up the win.
"It is good to get back on track,"
he said. "We still didn't play to
the potential I think we are ca-
pable of playing, but right now
we will just take a win.
'A 'couple of guys subbed in
and provided a little spark for us
and kind of got us going. Hope-
fully, this game will give the guys
some confidence to not only fin-
ish out this week but theirest of
the season as well."
Marianna was scheduled to
travel to Panama City on Thurs-
day night to take on district rival
Bozeman.


Lady Bulldogs

earn 1-1 draw

with Walton
BY SHELIA MADER
Floridan Correspondent

The Marianna High School
Lady Bulldogs came ever so close
to breaking their winless streak
Tuesday night, as they played
80 minutes to a 1-1 draw against
Walton on the road.
The Lady Bulldogs played
through 40 minutes without al-
lowing a goal.
Early in the second half, the
Lady Braves notched one to the
back of the goal to go up 1-0 over
Marianna.
Late in the second half, fol-
lowing several missed attempts,
LinseyToole slipped one past the
Braves keeper to tie the game at
one.
Minutes later, Marianna had
another opportunity to score,
but the Walton's goal keeper
made a leaping save to keep the
game tied.
On the night, Marianna's
keeper Mallory Dean recorded
26 saves on 34 attempts, allow-
ing just the lone goal with seven
missed shots.
Following the game, MHS
coach David Castleberry said,
"This was huge for us. It's not a


win, but it sure wasn't a loss. We
held our own all 80 minutes and
that was without one of our key
defenders.
"Ashley (Griffin) is still out due
to injury and we had some girls
who had to step up and they did
that."
Marianna was scheduled to
travel to Bozeman on Thursday
night in a district game.

Bulldogs fall to Rams, 71-52


BYDUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com

The Marianna Bulldogs fell
to 1-3 on the season with a 71-
52 hoie loss to the Rutherford
Rams on Tuesday night.
The game was close in the
first quarter, with the Bulldogs
trailing by just two, but the
Rams blew the game open in
the second period and never
looked back.
Rutherford out-scored Mari-
anna 20-9 in the second quar-
ter to go up 31-18 at the half,
and kept the lead in double
figures through the third
period.
The Bulldogs were able to
cut the margin to nine at one
point in the second half, but
the Rams responded with one
last charge to push the lead
back out of reach.
Khaliel Spearman had 19
points and Jai Jencks 16 .to
lead the Rams, who were with-
out star guard John Wade.
Quay Royster led the Bull-
dogs with 20, with Trae' Pring-
ley adding 13.
Marianna coach Travis Blan-


ton said he could not have
been more impressed by the
Rams.
"They're the best team we've
played, and that's even with-
out the Wade kid playing," he
said. "I'd be very shocked if
they're not a final four team."
As for his team, Blanton said
the Bulldogs continued to
have some of the same prob-
lems that have plagued them
in previous games.
"We had 11 turnovers and
gave up 15 offensive rebounds
at halftime, and it didn't get
a whole lot better in the sec-
ond half," he said. "I still think
team chemistry is an issue, as
well as taking care of the ball.
We couldn't keep them off the
glass. It's just going to be an
ongoing issue.
"This team has got to realize
that we have to go doWn fight-
ing together. They share re-
sponsibility for wins and loss-
es. Until we can grow together
as a team and trust one anoth-
er, it's going to be tough."
Marianna will next travel to
Walton on Friday to take on:
the Braves in its District 1-4A.

Hornets go for 4-0 in

away district games

BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com

The Cottondale Hornets and Graceville
Tigers will face off tonight in Graceville in a
huge District 3-1A clash that could play a big
role in who ultimately prevails in the league
standings.
Cottondale (5-1) comes into tonight's game
with a perfect 4-0 mark in league play- includ-
ing 3-0 on the road having taken road wins
over Ponce De Leon, Altha, andWewahitchka,
and a home victory over Sneads.
,Graceville (4-1) was'also 4-0 going into
Thursday night's road game against Altha,
having previously taken road wins over Ponce
De Leon andVernon, and homewins overWe-
waliitchka arid Sneads.'
Regardless' of the result of Thursday night's
game, Hornets coach' Chris Obert said that it
was going to be'a big game for both teams.
"Whether we're both 4-0 or both 0-4, it will
be a big game because of the rivalry. It goes
way back," he said. "For us both to be 4-0, that
makes it a bigger game, but it's not a make or
break game. Whether we win or lose, there's
still a long time left for the district season.
"But with both teams being on a little bit of
a streak, and it being a rivalry on top of it, it
should be a big time atmosphere for a big time
game."
While the Hornets were expected to be at the
top of the district coming into the season, the
Tigers have been a bit of a surprise, though
Obert said he isn't the least bit stunned that
Graceville is playing well.
"I think (Graceville) coach (Matt) Anderson

the title game, having taken
wins of 38-0 over Hawthorne,
56-19 over Trenton, and 27-
6 over Union County all at
home.
SChipley coach Rob Arm-
strong said this year's Jefferson
squad is typical of most that
you would see in any given
year.
"They've got a good football
team. The thing about them is
that they're so fastlike any Jef-
ferson County team over the
years," he said. 'But they're
also physical. They get to the
ball and put a hat on you. They
do a great job of that.

Chipley
From Page 1B

"(Jefferson) coach (Jer-
emy) Brown has done a
good job of coaching them
up. He's been there three
years and they've gotten
better each year."
Chipley's path to the
title game could be classi-
fied as unlikely, especially
given the 34-14 loss it suf-
fered a month ago at home-
against Holmes County in
the de facto district cham-
pionship game.
But the Tigers respond-
ed with a 48-0 win over
Graceville the following
week, and they haven't
been beaten since.
Armstrong said the loss
to Holmes County was
disappointing, but that he
believed weeks before that
game that his team had
a chance to make a run
come playoff time.
"I think once we quali-
fied for the playoffs way


Hornets

ever done it. I knew he
would do a good job and
get them to play hard and
buy in. With that, and
when you've got a couple
of players like (Rasheed)
Campbell and (Marquis)
White, that's the mak-
ings of having a real good
team."
The Tigers won big in
their road victories over


back when we beat Boze-
man (on Oct. 21), I felt like
we might be able to hang
around for a while and win
a few games," he said. "We
were familiar with every-
one we were going to play,
and we had already played
a couple of those teams
early in the season.
"We felt good about it.
But this time of the year,
you've got to be lucky and
good."
All three of Chipley's
playoff opponents have
been teams that the Tigers
played earlier in the year,
having taken wins over
Blountstown and North-
view in the second and
third weeks of the season.
But Jefferson County will
provide a different and
stiffer challenge for Chi-
pley tonight.
"We've got to be able to
slow them down and we've
got to be able to finish our
drives," Armstrong said.
"When we take it down
there, we've got to finish it


PDL and Vernon and were
solid in their home wins
over Wewa and Sneads,
the latter coming on Tues-
day by a score of 61-55.
The Hornets have at
times been dominant to
start this season, but they
*had to rally back from a
13-point second half defi-
.cit on Tuesday night to
'take a 66-60 road wini over
Wewa.
Coming into the year,
Obert said he wanted to
see if this year's team had
the mental toughness to


SPORTS


and put it in the end zone
and put some pressure on
them. It's a lot easier to
say it than to do it because
they're pretty good on
defense."
Regardless of the out-
come, the coach said that
this has been one of his
most enjoyable teams to
coach.
"It's been just fun, just a
.great experience," he said.
"It's not only the kids who
have had a great experi-
ence, but the coaches have
really enjoyed it too. We've
enjoyed getting in there
with the kids and getting to
work because they have re-
sponded so well. It's been a
blessing to be around this
group this year."
Armstrong has had a
long record of success as
a coach, and Chipley has
long been one of the more
consistent lower classifica-
tion programs in Florida,
but a state title would
be the first for both, and
would be an achievement


win such games as last
year's scrappy and over-
achieving group, but the
coach said that it's still too
early to tell if that's the
case.
"I do think they showed
some toughness because
nothing was easy that
night," he said. "Wewa
played real well. They
were knocking down shots
and they made some good
plays. We did keep fight-
ing and we found a way.
But I don't want to have to
do that too many times.


that the coach said would
be very special.
"Just thinking about it
for the kids, you can't put
into words how much it
would mean to these guys
for how hard they work,"
he said. "I hope they get to
experience it. As coaches,
we need to do everything
we can do to put these
guys into a position to get
it done."
To do it, the coach said
it would be important for
his players to stay focused
on the game and block out
any and all distractions.
"That's the thing in this
kind of game. It's the team
that is able to deal with
all of the outside things
that you have in a game
like this that will have the
edge," Armstrong said.
"With everything going
on, they have to keep their
eyes on what's important. I
hope our kids are mature
enough to keep that in
mind and be ready to go at
6 p.m. on Friday night."


"It could be important
,for this one for us to get
off to a quicker start. I
don't want to spot Gracev-
ille a double digit lead. If
that happens, then we'll
have to show some more
heart and toughness to try
to dig it out like we did the
other night, but nobody
wants to give somebody
a double digit lead. I hope
we'll come out mentally,
focused and prepared to
play."
The game will tip at 7:30
p.m.

NFL


Bears get ready


to face Tebow


The Associated Press

LAKE FOREST, Ill. -
Chicago defensive tackle
Henry Melton had some
quick answers to the
challenge facing the Chi-
cago Bears this Sunday.
How do you stop Tim
Tebow, who's been as
effective as he has been
unorthodox?
"Tackle him," Melton
said when asked about
the 236-pound quarter-
back who's helped make
option football a part of
NFL lingo.
His passing might not
be precise or textbook,
but Tebow's ability to
take off running has
led the Broncos to five
straight wins.
Any secret plans?
"Sack him," Melton
said with a laugh. "We've
got a couple things we're
working on to get him
down. I'm not going to
say too much. ... I think
we're going to do some-
thing different than a lot
of teams did. Tebow was


running free on them."
Playing in Denver's
high altitude against a
quarterback who's hot
and also unpredictable
makes Sunday's game
even more difficult for a
Bears team struggling on
offense. Backup Caleb
Hanie has thrown three
interceptions in each of
his two starts since Jay
Cutler was knocked out
with a broken thumb.
And now versatile lead-
ing rusher Matt Forte
is out with a sprained
knee.
The Bears' defense did
OK last week in a frus-
trating 10-3 loss to strug-
gling Kansas City that
left the Bears at 7-5.
The lone TD was a
head-shaker: Lineback-
er Brian Urlacher and
safety Chris Conte went
up at the same time to
bat down a Hail Mary
pass from Tyler Palko at
the end of the half and
ended up knocking the
ball right to the Chiefs'
Dexter McCluster.

IndCar wont return to L


The Associated Press

LAS VEGAS The IndyCar Se-
ries will not return to Las Vegas
Motor Speedway next season,
and its future at the track de-
pends in part on what it learns
from the investigation into Dan
Wheldon's fatal accident, .
Wheldon, a two-time India-
napolis 500 winner, was killed.in
the opening laps of the Oct. 16
season finale at Las Vegas. The
investigation into the 15-car fa-
tal accident is ongoing, and In-
dyCar has postponed releasing


its 2012 schedule until it deter-
mines if the series can contintie
.racing on high-banked ovals
such as LasVegas.
Speedway Motorsports Inc.
owner Bruton Smith was ada-
mant he wanted IndyCar to
honor the three-year lease deal
it has with Las Vegas, but Indy-
Car CEO Randy Bernard had
been reluctant to return to the
)speedway.
Smith told The Associated-
Press on Thursday that SMI
agreed to a buyout of 2012, and
the.final season of the contract


will be reviewed later.
,Bernard' -confirmed he'd
come to an agreement with
SMI.
"We're not guaranteeing we'll
be back," Bernard said. "But we'll
test.there, and we'll see what we
can learn."
No matter the results, concerns
remain about the emotional is-
sues the series would face upon
returning to Las Vegas.
Wheldonwas killed 12 laps into
the season finale in a fiery 15-car
accident. Critics have pointed to
everything from the 34-car field,


as Vegas
the size and speed of the track,
the speedway's high banking
and the varying experience level
of the drivers as reasons fdr the
accident.
Wheldon was entered as part
of a promotion that would have
paid him $5 million if he could
havp driven from the back of
the field to Victory Lane. It was
all part of a season-ending
spectacular aimed to boost tele-
vision ratings and send IndyCar
into 2012 'with some momen-
tum. Instead, it turned terribly
wrong minutes into the race,


in 2012
and IndyCar has been struggling
with difficult decisions and a
tumultuous offseason in the six
weeks since.
With Las Vegas settled, for now,
attention now turns to Texas Mo-
tor Speedway.
The high-banked oval is one of
the most popular venues in the
series and has hosted IndyCar
every year since 1997. But there
was no sanctioning agreement
in place before. Wheldon's ac-
.cident, and Bernard has been

the investigation is complete.


Pujols, Angelsreach $254 mi
The AS.ocatd Pre:


DALLAS Albert Pujols
could have been a wealthy
Cardinal for life, plan-
ning for the day his statue
would be erected outside
Busch Stadium next to
those of Stan Musial, Bob
Gibson and the other St.
Louis greats.
Instead, exactly six weeks
after leading the Cardinals
to a second ride in one of
the most thrilling World
Series ever, he decided to
accept the second-high-.
est contract in baseball,
history for anew future in
southern -Cifornia with
the Los Aiieles Angels.
The three-fime NL NMVP
agreed Thuirsday to a $25-
million, Ip-year contract
with the.'.':gels, leaving
behind a heartbroken fan
base by jilting one of the
sport's traditional teams
for an expansion club with
only one championship in
its half-centurv.
For baseball, it was a
virtually unprecedentedtd
move. .,, .
Many fop. stars have
changed .eams in their
careers, from Babe Ruth
to Willie -Mays to Barry
Bonds. But this is perhaps
the best player in the game
over the past decade, exit-
ing shortly after one of the
great postseason power
shows.
Abig and burly offensive
force with a shaved head,
the nine-time All-Star has,
a room full of honors, win-'
ning the 2001 NL Rookie of
theYear award, NLMVPs in
2005,'200'8 and 2009, a bat-
ting title in 2003 and pair ,
of Gold Gloves at first base.'
Who-would have predicted
that when the Cardinals:
selected him.in the 13th,
round of the 1999 amateur
draft with the 402nd over-
all selection?
And now, he's going
West. ,
As his deal fell into place
on the final day of the win-
ter meetings, the Angels
struck another big agree-
ment, a $77.5 million,
five-year contract with
left-hander C.J.Wilson, the
ace whose Texas Rangers
lost to the Cardinals in the
seven-game World Series.
"This is obviously the
moment where we have
thrown our hat in the ring,"
new Angels manager Jerry
Dipoto said.
Had he stayed in St. Lou-
is before packed, adoring

hard fan who wore team
colors to work during the
playoffs. "I think he's going
to regret leaving here. If
he'd have stayed here and
signed a long-term deal
with the Cardinals, they'd
have had compassion for
him because they're seen
him at his best."
Pujols' contract, which
like Wilson's is subject to a
physical, is only the third
to break the $200 million
barrier, following Alex
Rodriguez's $252 million,
10-year deal with Texas be-
fore the 2001 season and
A-Rod's $275 million, 10-
year agreement with the
Yankees before the 2008
.season.

Pujols rejected a mui-

Delany OK with no AQ, as


long as

The Associated Press

NEW YORK Big Ten Commis-
sioner Jim Delany, says he would
support the elimination of auto-
matic bids to the Bowl Champi-
onship Series as long as the teams
from his league get to play in the
Rose Bowl.
But if college football's leaders
want to turn the BCS into a four-
team playoff, Delany plans to push
back. And Notre Dame athletic di-
rector Jack Swarbrick would be on
Delany's side of the debate.
Delany was at the Intercollegiate
Athletics Forum on Thursday, part
of a panel discussion with Atlantic
Coast Conference Commissioner
John Swofford, Conference USA
Commissioner Britton Banowsky
and Mountain West Conference
Commissioner Craig Thompson.
The commissioners, university
presidents and athletic directors
who control the BCS are in the
early stages of determining the
future of major college football's

Among the many possible chang- Delany followed with a response

having the BCS set only the match- "As long as I can go to the Rose
up for the No. 1 vs. No. 2 national Bowl, I'm OK without automatic
championship game. The other bids," Delany said. "If Brit doesn't
bowl games would be free to make want automatic bids, that's fine
deals with whatever schools and with me. And if he doesn't want me
leagues they would like, much the to have one, that's OK, as long as I
way it was before the BCS. can go to Pasadena."
Banowsky said automatic-bid Delany told reporters later: "If
status had become divisive. C- they (Banowsky and Thompson)

matic bid, just lost three members tem be market based, I can't object

which also is a non-AQ conference, rent BCS set up, the champions

"I feel strongly that it has been championship game. The BCS has
a negative driver from our perspec- allowed teams from other confer-
five," Banowsky said. "I hope that ences more opportunities to play in
as we evolve the BCS we do it in a the prestigious California game, in-
way that can create a more happy cluding TCU of the Mountain West
BCS without creating these class last season.


The Associated Press

MIAMI Shane Bat-
tier will be with the Miami
Heat this season. Mario
Chalmers is deciding if
he'll be there with him.
Saying he only wants "a
winning role" at this point
in his career, Battier an-
nounced Thursday morn-
ing that he would sign with
the Eastern Conference
champion Heat. Miami
let him know as soon as
the free-agency shopping
window formally opened
this week that he was the
Heat's top signing priority
- even though the team
has some question marks
at the point guard and cen-
ter spots.
"Over, the last week, I've
played out every scenario
in my head over and over,"
Battier wrote on Twitter. "It
always came back to one
thing for me: A winning
role."
So the role Battier wants
is clear.. The role Chalm-
ers wants is as well: He'd
like'to be Miami's starting
point guard again, and
said he will decide by Fri-
day morning whether to
re-sign with Miami or ac-
cept an offer elsewhere. If
Chalmers signs with an-
other club, Miami would,
have three days to match
the offer because he is a re-
stricted free agent.
"It's in their hands," said
Chalmers, who wore Heat
gear for his workout at the
arena Thursday and aver-
aged 11.8 points per game
in last season's NBA finals.
"Let's see what they do."
Heat forward Udonis
Hasle. sounded hope-
ful that Chalmers and the
Heat can reach a deal.
"Championships are why
we play this game," Haslem
said. "If he can come here
and have an opportunity
to win a championship and
get somewhat close to the
financial things that he's
looking for, then I think it's
a perfect situation for him.'
That'll be up to him."
The Battier-to-Miami
move is a Duke reunion of
sorts. Heat CEO Nick Aris-
on has a close relationship
with Battier from their time
together in college. Nick
Arison, the son of Heat
owner Micky Arison, was
the Duke team manager
when Battier played for
the Blue Devils, including
when Mike Krzyzewski's
club won the 2001 nation
title.
Batter wrote that the
lockout gave him a lot of
time "to consider what
was important to me at
this stage of my life and ca-
reer." Predictably, his deci-
sion was well-received by
his soon-to-be teammates.
"Happy and excited to


have u (a part) of the Heat,"
LeBron James wrote to Bat-
tier on Twitter.
The Heat are not expect-
ed to-be able to comment
on the Battier decision un-
til Friday. No contracts can
beformally signed until the
new collective bargaining
agreement is completed,
a process that is now in its
final stages. Battier who.
almost certainlycouldhave
made more elsewhere is
expected to be at Miami's
first training-camp prac-
tice, tentatively scheduled
for Friday afternoon.
"Defensive mindset, de-
fensive mentality," Haslem
said. "He's proven to be a
winner." .
The Heat have monitored
free agent center Eddy Cur-
ry for several months, even
having him in for a work-
out last season before the
lockout began, and are ex-
pected to at least give him
as look in camp. Curry has
been in only 10 NBA games
since the start of the 2008-
09 season, but Haslem
recalls times when Curry
was a matchup problem
for Shaquille O'Neal.
"If we have an opporru-
nirt add a guy like that to'
our roster, it can only im-
prove our chances," Has-
lem said. ,
NBA Development
League guard Cameron
Jones has also beeninvited
to camp. Jones has been
.with the Fort Wayne Mad
Ants this season.
Chalmers referred to
Miami as "home," said he
would like to be back, and
added that his motivation
for this season is a return
trip totthe finals.
"I had a taste of it last
year," Chalmers said. "I
want to go through it again
and actually get a ring this
time."
For his career, Battier has
averaged 9.6 points and 4.7
rebounds. The 33-year-old
is entering his 10th NBA
season, having previously
played for Memphis and
Houston.
With Mike Miller side-
lined while recovering
from hernia surgery, and
James Jones not necessar-
ily assured of returning to
Miami, the Heat wanted to
add another veteran shoot-
erwho can extend defenses
and Battier seemed like
the right fit. He's a 38 per-
cent shooter from 3-point
range for his career, and he
had 27 games with multi-
ple 3-pointers last season.
Plus, he's still considered a
strong defender.
"If he comes, he's more
than welcome," Chalmers
said. "I'd like to see him be
a part of the Heat organi-
zation. It's a good organi-
zation and I wish the best
for him."

can sometimes be difficult
to find, so when dealing
with matters of extreme
importance, rely solely on

submission.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.

might be okay when you
know the odds are tilted
in your favor, but when
things are not that certain,
it would be far better to
avoid taking chances.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March
20) -.If you take the posi-
tion that you are absolutely
right and your mate is to-
tally wrong, all you'll do is
prolong the argument.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
- If you're given some un-
familiar tools to work with,
find somebody who is ex-
perienced in using them to
teach you, and follow their
instructions to the letter.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
- A lack of discipline could
quickly sow the seeds for
spender's remorse.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
- In situations where it's
OK to be a bit assertive,
you should take care not to
become pushy.

You won't have any
problems being generous

as strongly about his or her
views as you do.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov.22)
-When it comes to involv-

you.


Annie's Mailbox


DearAnnie: I have been married to my
husband for more than nine years and
still have a problem with my mother-in-
law. When I had a bridal shower, Mom
didn't reply, didn't show up and never sent
a card. This made me feel unwelcome.
I told my husband that when we have a
baby shower, I really want his mother to
attend. Afteryears of strugglingwith infer-*
tility, we received wonderful news. We are
adopting a baby girl. My aunt offered to,
give me a baby shower, and I waited until
the judge's final decision before I said yes.
My husband told his mother how impor-
tant it was that she be there, and that not
showing up would be hurtful to me.
DUe to circumstances beyond our con-
trol, our adoption case is hung up in the
courts. We had the shower anyway, but
my mother-in-law didn't attend, saying
we don't actually have a baby yet. She
said she'd visit after we get her. Annie, it's
not about a gift. It's about caring enough
to be there. My in-laws only .visit once a
year, but they expect us to make numer-
ous trips to their home and often make
my husband feel guilty.
I can't stop feeling that my mother-in-
law doesn't accept me. Should I tell her
how hurt I am or let it go?
DISAPPOINTED DAUGHTER-IN-
LAW


Bridge
How should East and West card to try to defeat
this contract of three no-trump after West leads
the spade queen?
When South rebid two no-trump, North cor-
rectly raised to three no-trump. With a long minor,
no singleton or void, and no thought of a slam, re-
sponder should either raise to three no-trump or
sign off in three of his suit (if that is possible and he
is sure that three no-trump will not make).
South starts with six top tricks: two spades, two
hearts, one diamond and one club. He must make
something of dummy's diamonds. And the correct,
plan is to take two finesses.
So, declarer wins the first trick in his hand and
plays a diamond to dummy's 10. Now East must
play low in tempo.
If he takes the trick or spends some time consid-
ering that option, South will end up with an over-
trick or two. But as long as East ducks smoothly,
the defense is still alive.
Declarer will cross to his hand and lead his second
diamond. Now it is West's turn in the spotlight.


Dear Disappointed: We don't know if
Mom doesn't accept you, if she has diffi-
culty traveling or if she is simply socially
ignorant. But you can't fix what you don't
address. After nine years of marriage, it's
time to have a heart-to-heart with Mom,
in person, with your husband and your
father-in-law present. Do it in as loving a
manner as you can manage. Don't bring
up past hurts that will put her on the
defensive. Simply say how important she
is to you and how much you want her to
be part of your daughter's life. We hope it
helps.

Dear Annie:What do we do when Granny
is too old to keep driving, but won't stop?
Any mention of her not getting behind
the wheel is met with screaming rage.
Even though Grandma has had many
near accidents, she feels she is still a com-
petent driver and the other motorists are
to blame.
ROAD WORRIER

Dear Worried: Suggest that Grandma
enroll in the AARP Driver Safety Course
(aarp.org) as a way to brush up on her
skills. If she still won't give up her license
and. you believe she is a danger on the
road, enlist the help of her doctor, the
DMV and, if necessary, the police.
