with a white substance in
it under the driver seat.
"Officers then gave
verbal commands to the

Mother


accuses


grandma


of abuse

Staff Report

Woman arrested for
allegedly striking
grandson with fist

A Marianna woman was arrested.
on allegations that she hit her sev-
en-year-old grandson twice in the
face with her fist after drinking a
quart of gin.
- The Dec. 10 incident was report-
ed around 7:45 a.m. that day by the
child's mother.
The youngster's grandmother,
Mary L. Blandenburg, was then
confronted by police.
She .told officers that she'd con-
sumed the gin that morning and
that she was sitting on the couch
watching television at her home on
Hannah Street when the children
present started running through
the house. She said she told them
to quit, but they didn't.
.She said she tried to grab the
children, but was unsuccessful and
that she wished she could..have
caught'them.
The grandson was interviewed
by police as well. He said he was
running through the-house when
he saw his grandmother drop her
cigarette:
When he reached to hand it to
her, he said, she snatched his hand
and pulled the cigarette from him.
He said she then began 'to chase
him and that he tripped and fell in
the hallway.
While he was on the floor, he told
police, his grandmother struck
him twice in the face with her fist.
Other witnesses corroborated the
boy's story, and Blandenburg was
then arrested on a charge of child
abuse-inflicting physical harm,
and battery-domestic violence.


GIVING BACK



WANTED: SANTAS FOR SENIORS


Donate agift to a
senior citizen this

holiday season
BY LAUREN DELGADO
delgado@jcfloridan.com
Children aren't the only ones who get
excited over Christmas presents. Sever-
al local nursing homes have Christmas
programs allowing community mem-
bers to give an item to senior citizens.
The Chipola Nursing Pavilion and
Retirement Center has an angel tree
with about 10 angels still available.
Everything from costume jewelry to
jogging suits has been requested by
residents.
"It just makes them feel special,"
said Cara Mount, social worker. "And
having the community remembering.'
someone who lives here makes them.
feel good." .
:Mount asked that all gifts be brought
in no later than Dec. 19 because Santa
Claus is making an early visit to dis-
Stribute the gifts on Dec. 20.
"This generation is one that we don't
need to forget," Mount said.
Marianna Health and Rehabilitation
Center has a list of its residents and
their Christmas.wishes. Those interest-
ed in donating a Christmas gift can call
the center for the gift idea. Most want
things theywould receive at home: toi-
letries, hats, etc. Activities director Mil-
lie Bowling asked that the donations
be brought in by Dec. 21 or 22.
"We:try to make Christmas big for
them because that's what they would
have done with their children," Bowl-
ing said.
The center will send each of the do-
nors a picture of their resident opening
the Christmas gift.
At Signature HealthCARE at the
Courtyard, community members can
call in and adopt a senior citizen. Do-
nators will receive a list of gifts their
adoptee has requested. They then can
choose what fits in their budget. To
have Santa Claus deliver the gift, Anna
Neel, the quality of life director, asked
that they be brought in by noon on
Dec. 15. However, gifts will still be ac-
cepted until Christmas.


SS OUMII ulED PH
Please don't forget about the elderly this holiday. Donate to these nursing homes: Chipola
Nursing Pavilion and Retirement Center, 4294 Third Ave., Marianna; Marianna Health and
Rehabilitation Center, 4295 Fifth Ave., Marianna; Signature HealthCARE at the Courtyard
2600 Forest Glen Trail, Marianna; Signature HealthCARE of North Florida
1083 Sanders Ave.. Graceville.


"It's a great way to give back," Neel said.
"Our seniors have contributed so much
to our community, our upbringing, our
heritage."
Courtyard residents are still active in the
community, Neel said. A group volunteers
at a daycare. They've also donated toys to


a children's home in Tallahassee and to
Golson Elementary School for Christmas
this year.
"You're helping people that help other
people," said Neel.

well. In order to do so we had to
reinvent the wheel."
Gardner said outdated training
videos and materials with voice
over and slow animation were
not holding the students' atten-
tion. He and his assistant Chase
Vlieg formed a partnership with
the entertainment industry to
create a new fast-paced "In-
fotainment" training system.

The Chipolainstructors starred
in the new training series with
help from industry partners
Auto Value and A-Tech Automo-


tive Training Systems. Gardner
says, "We created the first ever
ASE Certification series written,
scripted, and on screen talent by
two practicing automotive tech-
nology instructors with over 22
years of combined experience
earning the Automotive Ser-
vice Excellence (ASE) stamp of
approval."
Each segment contains: Hands
on Demonstrations, Parts Iden-
tification, Theory of Operation,
Professionalism Dialogue, Mo-
tivational Tips, ASE Preparation
& Five ASE Style Questions.'The
no fluff informative videos are 3-
10 minutes each, and designed
to be utilized on internet based
programs or stand alone DVD's.
Gardner says the series was stra-
tegically scripted and produced
to meet the needs of today's au-
tomotive students, instructors
and technicians. All videos are
quick and to the-point, with mul-
tiple shots at different locations,
positive, bright and upbeat. The
DVD's/curriculum package was
designed to meet the needs of
all three types. of .learners: vi-
sual, audio and kinesthetic. All
content includes animation and
graphics, close ups of compo-
nents and parts labeling, ASE
questions with highlighted an-


swers, demonstrations explained
verbally with all parts labeled. All
live demonstrations with tools
and equipment involve the audi-
ence in the learning process.
Any institution can implement
the DVD's into their current pro-
gram. ASE and NATEF correla-
tions are an integral part of the
curriculum package. Students
and instructors can learn theory
together and then reinforce the
content technically with hands-
on experience.
Gardner says the impact of the
DVD series has been nationwide.
Automotive publishers Infobase
Learning, Films on Demand
Goodheart-Wilcox, Delmar,
Cengage Learning and Pearson
are currently developing their
automotive curricula with this
system, either by emulation or
direct utilization.
Gardner Says, "Our goal is to

meeting the needs of present
and future industries with teach-
ing methods that reach today's
students."

TALLAHASSEE The
Florida Public Service
Commission is holding
hearings on Gulf Power

up to $102 million per year.
Public Counsel J.R.
Kelly, the state's consumer

posal should be cut to $16
million.
The Florida Retail Fed-

Fla. tourism sees modest growth in '11


The Associated Press

ST. PETERSBURG A
flood of new visitors from
Brazil and a stunning
post-oil-spill. rebound by
Panhandle beaches were
bright spots in 2011 for a
Florida tourism industry
that has weathered some
hard times the past couple
of years.
The .$60 billion indus-
try experienced modest
growth this year, and of-
ficials expect a similar
bump in 2012 as the ha-
tion's economy continues
to improve and the BP oil
spill that fouled the shores
of Gulf Coast states last
year becomes a more dis-
tant memory.
Numbers through Sep-
tember released by Visit
Florida, the state's tourism
agency, shows the volume
of travelers to the state is
up around 5 percent over
the same stretch in 2010,
driven by double-digit
gains in overseas visitors.
With a strong fourth quar-
ter, -Florida is on track to
top 84 million visitors this
year, the most since be-
fore the Great Recession
when the industry was ac-
customed to solid growth
year after year.
Final tallies for 2011 will
be out early next year.
Tourism is Florida's lead-
ing industry, employing
around 1 million people
and accounting for more.
than one-fifth of the state's
total sales tax revenue.
"The (2011) numbers are
a pretty clear indication
that althoughwe're not to-
tally out of the economic
challenges that we've been
facing for the last three or
four years, maybe people
see a little bit of a light at
the end of the tunnel,"
Visit Florida chief Chris


Thompson said.
Latin America is always
a strong sector for Florida
tourism, but the num-
ber of visitors from Brazil
a country of 192 million
people currently enjoy-
ing a booming economy
is up by at least a third,
drawn to the state's theme
parks, shopping, nightlife
and international flair.
Through September more
visitors and dollars
have come to Florida
from Brazil than from the
United Kingdom, which
usually runs second to
Canada in number of
overseas tourists.
"What's happening is
that (Brazilians) who have
never been able to travel
abroad before because
they didn't have the means
financially all of a sudden
do have the means," said
Denise Arencibia; director
of Latin America outreach
for Visit Florida. She add-
ed that Latin American
countries "have remained
stable where Europe and
the U.S. are having a hard
time economy-wise."
The other pleasant sur-
prise was the Florida Pan-
handle beaches, ,which
along with other Gulf
Coast shores suffered in
2010 either from tar balls
and sheen from the BP oil
spill or the false percep-
tion that the entire coast-
line was fouled by crude.
The spill killed summer
2010 for Panhandle ho-
tels, condos, restaurants
Sand attractions. This year,
most of the beaches 'came
back with record seasons.
The post-spill bounce
was fueled partly by repa-
ration money from BP
to promote Gulf Coast
beaches and some good
luck tropical storms
and hurricanes -stayed

away.
Panama City set a new
record for bed-tax reve-
nue, which was up 20 per-
cent over 2009, the previ-
ous best year.
"We're still not back to
exactly where we should
have been had there not
been an oil spill, but we're
getting close," said Dan
Rowe, president of the
Panama City Convention
and Visitors Bureau. "By
every estimation; it was a
very, very good recovery
here."
At the 2,400-acre Sand-
estin Gulf and Beach Re-
sort in Destin, occupancy
was up more than 26 per-
cent through October over
the same period in 2010.
President John Russell at-
tributes it to aggressive
marketing, use of social
media and making more
rooms available through
travel websites.
"We knew during the
spill, especially after the
well was capped, that we
were.really going to have


to hustle to mitigate the
damage and make sure we
left it in 2010 and it didn't
bleed over to 2011," Rus-
sell said.' "We just didn't
wait for the normal guests
Sto come: back because
we didn't know that they
would all come back,
so we said let's find new
people."
Tampa Bay-area beach
hoteliers were wringing
their. hands in the late
summer of 2010, plagued
by the mistaken percep-
tion that BP oil was going
to wash up any minute,
when in reality it came
nowhere close. They're
breathing a little easier
after a surprisingly good
year.
Bed-tax revenue growth
for the area was expected
to be about 1 to 2 per-
cent this year. Instead the
number jumped nearly 8
percent for the 12-month
period ending Sept. 30,
said D.T. Minich, execu-
tive director of Visit St.
Petersburg/Clearwater.


"I think there was some
pent-up demand from
people who had post-
poned or canceled their
vacations, and I think we
saw a return of people who
may had gone somewhere
else the year before" be-
cause of the threat of oil,
Minich aid.
Brian London, a Flori-
da-based travel industry
consultant, said he'd pre-
fer to see more new huge
"demand-generators,"
such as the popular Harry
Potter theme park that
opened at Universal Or-
lando in 2010, on the hori-
zon. But he expects more
measured growth next
year and more big gains
in the Canadian and Latin
American markets.
"The numbers in 2012
are going to be positive
coming off of 2011,", he
said. "However, all indica-
tors will still not be at their
pre-recession levels. We
have yet to peak through
that pre-recession high
point."


Appeals court hears barrel racing argument


The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE Oppo-
nents asked a Florida ap-
pellate court on Monday
to temporarily halt betting
on barrel racing until the
judges can rule on it.
Athree-judgepanel ofthe
1st District Court of Appeal
heard arguments on the
request to stop existingwa-,
gering in Gretna, just west,
of Tallahassee, as well as
consideration of pending:
applications to add a card
room there apd allow bar-
rel racing at another track
in Hamilton County east of
Tallahassee.
The, barrel racing case
is one of several pending.
The women's rodeo sport
began as a pari-mutuel
event for the first time any-
where in Florida on Dec. 1
in Gretna. ,
It is opposed by two as-
sociations' representing
flat-track quarter horse
owners and breeders. They
contend .barrel racing is
a low-cost wvay for track
owners to get around rac-
ing regulations so they can
qualify for more lucrative
card rooms and possibly
slot. machines. Flat. track
racing would require many
more horses and riders.
The appellate judges next
will be asked to consider'
whether the Florida Quar-


S From wire reports


ter Horse Racing Associa-
tion and Florida Quarter
Horse Breeders and Own-
ers Association are entitled
to administrative hearings
in the three licensing cases
regardless of whether they
temporarily block barrel
racing.
J. Stephen Menton, a
lawyer for the two associa-
tions, told the panel barrel
racing does not meet the
definition of racing in the
state's pari-mutuel law.
Menton also argued the
state granted a license to
Gretna Racing although
the company did not apply
between Dec. 15 and Jan. 4
as required by the statute.
, If you're going to allow
the expansion of gambling
in this state it needs to be
specifically authorized
by the legislature," Men-
ton said. He added that
it shouldn't be based on
"some license application
that comes in outside the
statutory time frame with-
out any scrutiny as to the
events that are going to oc-
cur and without meeting
the definition of a quarter
horse race."
. District Judge Stephanie
Ray told Gamett Chisen-
hall, a lawyer for the state,
said she didn't see anything
in the law permitting appli-
cations outside the speci-
fied dates.


.Chisenhall said the in-
dustry has accepted the
fact the Division of Pari-
Mutuel Wagering applies
the time limit only to re-
newals. He said the agency
treats initial permits dif-
ferently because it would
be unfair to make initial
applicants wait possibly
months to apply.
Grethna. pacing lawyer
Marc;Dunbar said his cli-
ent isentitled to rely on an
assurance it received from
a senior lawyer for the di-
vision that it could apply
three months prior to Dec.
15.
Dunbar also questioned
the motives of the barrel
racing opponents.
."It's strictly a function
of money," he said. "They
don't want to share the
money with the ladies
that run the barrels and
they don't want to share.
the money with the North
Florida Horsemen's Asso-
ciation," a partner of Gret-
'na Racing.
Chisenhall also told the
judges halting barrel rac-
ing until the legal issues
are resolved would be an
economic blow to Gretna
Racing and the communi-
Sty because the tack owner
has invested $20 million
and hired 170 employees.
A judge has scheduled a
hearing in February on the


two associations' argument
the state erred by failing to
adopt an administrative


rule on barrel racing before
allowing the Gretna facility
to open.

Think tank: Fla. Medicaid providing poor service


ThisAssimiat i tlFis

I \11 I l l \ S I I
loll l.ea p n'l iii s,' i l .lli\t'-
county Medicaid inigt d
care program is providing
such poor service that the
state should suspend plans
for c\lpa.iiding it statewide,
according to a report
released Monday by a
liberal-leaning think tank.
A spokeswoman for the
state agency that oversees
Medicaid responded in
an email that the report
"provides an incomplete
and inaccurate picture
with respect to access."
Managed care is.
provided mostly by private


companies including
health maintenance
organizations that are
paid a certain amount for
participants regardless of
how much service they
use.
Supporters say it will
cut costs compared to
the conventional fee-for-
service plans that pay
according to how much
service each patient uses.
Critics argue that reduces
the quality of care because
providers can make more
money if they cut services.
The Tallahassee-based
Florida Center for Fiscal
and Economic Policy notes
in the report that it relied


on claims information
because the state has
not yet made "patient
encounter" data available
although the experimental
program began five years
ago.
There's a problem,
though, with using data on
claims rather than visits,
wrote Michelle Dahnke,
a spokeswoman for the
Agency for Health Care
Administration.
"Multiple claims can
be reported by .visit,"
Dahnke wrote. "Numbers
of claims does not provide
information about access
to service."
She wrote that primary


care is commonly provided
through managed care
plans by paying a fixed
amount per participant
each month, making it
inappropriate to use paid
claims as a measure of
access to care.
The report says the
claims information shows
a wide variation in primary
care utilization rates
among various managed
care plans available to
Medicaid participants.
The rate for one plan
was only 46.8 services per
100 enrollees compared
to 439.5 for another in the
2008-09 budget year.
Likewise, in the next year,


one plan had a utilization
rate of just 44.1 services
per 100 enrollees while
another had 395.1.
"Reasonable variation in
primary care utilization is
to be expected," the report
says. "However, the mag-
nitude, of the differences
among plan access rates is
so pronounced as to pre-
clude the possibility they
can be explained as rea-
sonable variation."
Another finding was that
access to primary care
in the five participating
counties was "significantly
worse" than before the
pilot program began and
in the case of some plans


"alarmingly worse."
The five counties are
Broward in South Florida
and Duval, Baker, Clay and
Nassau in the Jacksonville
area.
Primary care access did
improve over time but
"remained disturbingly
low" in the five counties,
the report says.
The Republican-
controlled Legislature

A&M band with hazing


The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE Police
have arrested three Flor-
ida A&M band members
in the beating of a woman
during hazing rituals that
became so severe that her
thigh was broken.
Tallahassee police said
Monday that on Oct.


31 and Nov. 1 the three
struck band member Bria
Shante Hunter's legs with
their fists and with a metal
ruler to initiate her into
the "Red Dawg Order." It's
a band clique for students
who come from Georgia.
Hunter told police that
days later the pain be-
came so unbearable that


she went to the hospital.
Her thigh bone was bro-
ken and she had blood
clots in her legs.
Hunter's beatings came
about three weeks before
FAMU drum major Robert
Champion was killed dur-
ing a band trip to Orlando.
Police say hazing was
involved.

Supreme Court to review tough immigration law


The Associated Press

WASHINGTON The
Supreme Court stepped
into the fight Monday over
a tough Arizona law that
requires local police to
help enforce federal im-
migration laws pushing
the court deeper into hot,
partisan issues of the 2012
election campaign.
The court's election-year
docket now contains three
politically charged dis-
putes, including President
Barack Obama's health
care overhaul and Texas
redistricting.
The debate over immi-
gration already is shaping
presidential politics, and
now the court is undertak-
ing a review of an Arizona
lawthathas spawnedahost
of copycat state laws target-
ing illegal immigrants.
The court will review a
federal appeals court rul-
ing that blocked several
provisions in the Arizona
law. One of those requires
that police, while enforcing
other laws, question a per-
son's immigration.status if
officers suspect he is in the
country illegally.-
The case is the court's
biggest foray into immi-
gration law in decades,
said Temple University law
professor Peter Spiro, an
expert in that area..


The Obama administra-
tion. challenged the Ari-
zona law by arguing that
regulating immigration is
the job of the federal gov-
ernment, not states. Simi-
lar laws in Alabama, South
Carolina and Utah also are
facing administration law-
suits. Private groups are
suing over immigration
measures adopted in Geor-
gia and Indiana.
"This case is not just
about Arizona. It's about
every state grappling with
the costs of illegal immi-
gration," Arizona Gov. Jan
Brewer, a Republican, said
following tHe court's an-
nouncement Monday.
Fifty-nine Republicans in
Congress, including presi-
dential candidate Michele
Bachmann, filed a brief
with the court backing the
Arizona law.
The immigration /case,
like the challenge to
Obama's health care over-
haul, pits Republican-led
states against the Demo-
cratic administration in an
argument about the reach
of federal power. The redis-
tricting case has a similarly
partisan tinge to it, with Re-
publicans who control the
state government in Texas
facing off against Demo-
crats and minority groups
that tend vote Democratic.
In the immigration are-


na, the states say that the
federal government isn't
doing enough to address
a major problem and that
border states are suffering
disproportionately.
The issue has been wide-
ly discussed by the Repub-
lican candidates for presi-
dent. They have mostly
embraced a hard line to
avoid accusations that
they support any kind of
"amnesty" for the some 12
million illegal immigrants
estimated to be living in
the U.S.
SNewt Gingrich was most
recently criticized by his
opponents for saying he
would grant legal status
to some with longstand-
ing family and community
ties, and Gingrich has since
endorsed theSouth Caroli-
na law that allows police to
demand a person's immi-
gration status. That law is
among the four state laws
that have been challenged
by the administration.
Brewer signed the Ari-
zona immigration measure
into law in April 2010. The
administration sued three
months later to block it
from taking effect.
In April, >a three-judge
panel of the 9th U.S. Cir-
cuit Court of Appeals in
San Francisco upheld a
federal judge's ruling halt-
ing enforcement of sev-

international border fence near Nogales, Ariz.


eral provisions of the law.
Among the blocked provi-
sions: requiring all immi-
grants to obtain or carry
immigration registration
papers; making it a state
criminal offense for an ille-
gal immigrant to seek work
or hold a job and allowing
police to arrest suspected
illegal immigrants without
warrants.
In October, the federal
appeals court in Atlanta
blocked parts of the Ala-
bamalawthatforcedpublic
schools to check the immi-
gration status of students
and allowed police to file


criminal charges against
people who were unable to
prove their citizenship.
The administration ar-
gued that the justices
should have, waited to see
how other courts ruled on
the challenges to other laws
before getting involved.
Still, following the court's
announcement Monday,
White House spokesman
Jay Carney said, "We look
forward to arguing our
point of view in that case
when the time comes."
Spiro, the Temple Uni-
versity immigration expert,
said the court easily 'could


have passed on the Arizona
case for now. "They could
have waited for the more
extreme case to come from
Alabama, which really out-
flanked the Arizona law,"
Spiro said.
He predicted the court
would uphold the police
check of immigration sta-
tus but perhaps not 'the
measure making it a crime
to be without immigration
documents.
Arguments probably will
take place in late April,
which would give the court
roughly two months to de-
cide the case.


Obama says Iraq won't stand alone after war


The Associated Press

WASHINGTON Eager
to put the long and divisive
Iraq war to rest, President
Barack Obama declared
Monday "those days are
over" with the last Ameri-
can troops heading home,
but he pledged the U.S.
would remain committed
to the fledgling govern-
ment they leave behind.
He and Iraq's leader som-r
berly saluted America's war
dead at Arlington National
Cemetery.
"A war is ending," the
president said, standing
with Iraqi Prime Minister
Nouri al-Maliki at theWhite
House. U.S. troops are leav-


ing "with honor and with
their heads held high," said
Obama, who strongly op-
posed the war as a candi-
date for the White House.
The last American troops
are to be out of Iraq by Dec.
31. Thousands of others are
still in Afghanistan.
Just 6,000 remain in Iraq,
down from 170,000 at the
war's peak in 2007.
The withdrawal 'will
cap a: war in which nearly
4,500 Americans were
killed, roughly 32,000 were
wounded, hundreds of bil-
lions of dollars were spent
and the American political
debate was consumed until
economic woes brought at-
tention back home.


'" Obama had already said
weeks ago that he was pull-
ing all troops by year's end,
leaving his appearance
with al-Maliki to focus in-
stead on what's next a
relationship both leaders
described as rich in shared
interests, from education
to oil, politics to security.
To the Iraqi people, who
still face massive challeng-
es in rebuilding a society
ripped apart by nearly nine
years of war, Obama said:
"You will not stand alone."
The United States, in
fact, needs the help of Iraq
in dealing with the vola-
tile Middle East and two of
neighbors inparticular, Iran
and Syria. In getting out of


Iraq, Obama emphasized
that "our strong presence
in the Middle East endures"
and the United States won't
soften in.its defense of its
interests.
In the midst of a re-elec-
tion run, Obama is using
the war's end to both honor
the military's sacrifice and
to remind the nation the
unpopular war is ending on
his watch. He is to deliver
his war-is-over message in
TV interviews on Tuesday
and then again on Wednes-
day in remarks to troops at
Fort Bragg, N.C.
Obama opposed the war
from the start and eventu-
ally rode that stand to the
White House.


In a 2002 speech during
the months before the U.S.-
led invasion of Iraq began,
when Obama was a U.S.
senator from Illinois, he
that "What I am opposed
to is a dumb war.What I am
opposed to is a rash war."
On Monday, Obama put
the focus on Iraq's future.
"I think history will judge
the original decision to go
into Iraq," Obama said.
What's clear, he added, is
that because of the huge
sacrifices by American sol-
diers and civilians and the
courage of the Iraqi people,
"we have now achieved an
Iraq that is self-governing,
that is inclusive and that
has enormous potential."

Romney and Gingrich
trade barbs as 3-week
sprint to Iowa begins
MANCHESTER, N.H.
- Trading accusations of
greed, Mitt Romney and
Newt Gingrich challenged
each other Monday to
return millions made in ,
private business as the
race for the GOP presiden-
tial nomination turned,
increasingly acerbic and
personal at the start of a
three-week sprint to the
Iowa caucuses.
Far from Iowa, the two.
men campaigned miles
apart from each other in
next-up New Hampshire,
where Romney has long
dominated in polls but
where Gingrich is aggres-
sively working to make
inroads.
Romney called on Gin-
grich to return the estimat-,
ed $1.6 million he received
for providing strategic ,,.
advice to Freddie Mac, the


quasi-government agency
that guarantees home :
mortgages. Gingrich has
said he acted as a histo-
rian, not a lobbyist.
"That would make him.
the highest paid historian
in history," Romney told
Fox News Channel during
an interview from the Chez
Vachon diner, a regular
New Hampshire stop for
presidential candidates.
He suggested that Gingrich
was an ultimate insider
who leveraged his position
as a former House speaker
to line his pockets when he
left office. Said Romney:
"One of the things that
think people recognize in
Washington is that people
go there to serve the
people and then they stay
there to serve themselves."
Gingrich, campaigning
in nearby Londonderry,
countered quickly, saying
that Romney should give
back the millions he made
working at Bain Capital, a


venture capital firm that
sometimes laid people
off as part of its efforts to
make businesses more
efficient.

Occupy protesters
block gates at West
Coast ports
OAKLAND, Calif.
Hundreds ofWall Street
protesters blocked gates at
some of the West Coast's
busiest ports on Monday,
causing the partial shut--
down of several in a day of
demonstrations they hope
will cut into the profits of
the corporations that run
the docks.
The closures affected
some of the terminals
at the ports in Oakland,
Calif., Portland, Ore., and
Longview, Wash., though it
was not immediately clear
how much theshutdowns
would affect operations,
and what the economic
loss would be.


From California to as,
far away as Vancouver,
British Columbia, protest-
ers picketed gates, beating
drums, carrying signs
such as "ShutdownWall
St. on the Waterfront" and
causing longer wait times
for trucks.
SThere were a handful of
arrests so far, but no major
clashes with police.
While the demonstra-
tions were largely peaceful
and isolatedrto a few gates
at each port, local officials
in the union that repre-
sents longshoremen and,
in some cases, port offi-
cials, determined that the
conditions were unsafe for
workers.

Boehner: House will


approve payroll tax cutbill


The Associated Press

WASHINGTON
House Speaker John
Boehner predicted Mon-
day that the House will
approve legislation that
renews a payroll tax cut
and curtails extra ben-
efits for the long-term
unemployed.
The House is expected
to approve the roughly
$180 billion measure on
Tuesday. Senate Major-
ity Leader Harry Reid, D-
Nev., has said the bill will
go nowhere in the Senate,
citing.a provision all but
forcing President Barack
Obama to move ahead


quickly with a contro-
versial oil pipeline that
would run from Canada
to Texas.
Boehner, R-Ohio, side-
stepped a question about
whether he rules out'
eventually agreeing to a
compromise with that
chamber.
"The House is going to
do its job, in time for the
Senate then to do its job,"
Boehher told reporters.
Senate Democrats' ver-
sion of the bill pays its
costs largely by boosting
taxes on the wealthy. Re-
publicans prefer freezing
federal workers pay and
other spending cuts.


The House legislation
would continue the So-
cial Security payroll tax
that workers pay at 4.2
percent in 2012, the same
as thi year. That tax is
normally 6.2 percent, but
was temporarily cut in a
bid to spur the economy
The reduction means an
extra $1,000 in the wal-
lets of families earning
$50,000 annually.
*The Democrats' Senate
bill, which that cham-
ber has already rejected,
would drop the payroll
tax to 3.1 percent next
year and provide em-
ployers with similar
reductions.


Quiet Pa. town is center stage for Sanduskyfaceoff


The Associated Press

: BELLEFONTE, Pa. A
sleepy country town bet-
ter known for fly fishing
than courtroom drama
takes center stage Tues-
day for a face-tq-face
encounter between a dis-
graced Penn State coach
and the young men who
say he sexually assaulted
them as children in show-
ers and campus locker
rooms.
Jerry Sandusky, a for-
mer assistant football
coach at Penn State, will
confront at least six ac-
cusers who claim that he
violated their innocence
and preyed on their weak-
ness, using a charity that
was inspired by a biblical
parable.
Sandusky, 63, is charged
with more than 50 counts
of child sex-abuse involv-.
ing 10 boys he metthrough
the children's charity he
founded. A judge will de-
cide if prosecutors have
enough evidence to send
the case to a trial.
The defense oftenwaives
preliminary hearings,
although it can also use
the opportunity to cross-
examine witnesses ,and


explore their credibility.
But Sandusky's lawyer,
Joe Amendola, said Mon-
day his client welcomes
the hearing.
"We plan to 'proceed
with Jerry's hearing, and
Jerry. is looking forward:
to the opportunity to face
his accusers," Amendola
said. He said there had
been no plea negotiations
before the hearing.
He would only 'say,
"Maybe," when asked if
he would call Sandusky to
testify.
The drama will unfold in
a quiet, central Pennsylva-
nia town of just over 6,000
with Victorian homes
and fly fishermen, in a
courthouse framed by 26-
foot columns built in the
1830s. Lawyers, probation
officers and clerks went
about their business on
Monday while an official
numbered spots on the
sidewalk outside court for
network news vans. Bar-
ricades were piled neatly
on the courthouse lawn,
while lighting equipment
was stored behind the vet-
erans' memorial nearby.

tify bristled at Sandusky's


The Centre County Courthouse in Bellefonte, Pa., is shown Monday. Former Penn State
assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, charged with sexuallyabusing boys, is scheduled
to have a preliminary hearing at the courthouse Tuesday.


description of the en-
counters as childplay, or
"horsing around."
"My client said, 'There's
nothing fun about what
happened with me,'"
Slade McLaughlin said
last week, adding that he
believes the Penn State
scandal has unleashed
"a watershed moment"
in the understanding of
child sexual abuse.
Atleastsixoftheaccusers


are expected to testify at
the hearing, which could
last two days.
Last' month Sandusky
told NBC's Bob Costas
and The New York Times
that his relationship to the
boys who said he abused
them was like that of an
extended family. San-
dusky characterized his
experiences with the chil-
dren as "precious times"
and said the physical


aspect of the relationships
"just happened that way"
and didn't involve abuse.
Sandusky retired as
Penn State's longtime
defensive coordinator in
1999, a year after the first
known abuse allegation
reached police. Penn State
fired football coach Joe
Paterno last month, say-
ing he didn't do enough
to investigate allegations
against Sandusky.

From Page 1A
The park can provide a
hookup for the lights. Call the
park at 482-9006 to register.
About eight volunteers
plus a number of park rang-
ers began sorting through
the park's lights and holiday
decorations in the beginning
of November, said Hobbs.
Most of the lights get hooked
up to the park's power, but
some of the displays deep
in the woods are powered by
generators.
Strickland said the'free ad-
vertising was a way the park
was helping out the com-
munity while also bolstering
its own involvement in the
community.
"You have a dying commu-
nity in this area," Strickland
said. "You have empty busi-
nesses everywhere you look
on the street. We do it to give
back if we can."
The event first opened last
weekend, and about 800 peo-
ple attended, said Hobbs.

global solution to climate
change. If anything it's an
impediment."
Kent's announcement
comes a day after mara-
thonclimatetalkswrapped
up in the South African
port city of Durban.
Negotiators from nearly
200 countries agreed on
a deal that sets the world
on a path to sign a new
climate treaty by, 2015 to
replace the first Kyoto Pro-
tocol, which expires at the
end of next year.
Kent said the Durban
agreement does represent
a path forward. Durban's
accord envisions a new
treaty with binding targets
for all countries to take ef-
fect in 2020.


withdrawing from the ac-
cord is another setback to
th6 treaty concluded with
much fanfare in 1997.
The protocol, initially
adopted in Kyoto, Ja-
pan, in 1997, is aimed at
fighting global warming.
Canada's previous Liberal
government signed the
accord but did little to
implement it and Prime
Minister Stephen Harper's
Conservative government
never embraced it.

Chipola Women's Basketball


Lady Indians back home before break


BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com
The No. 14 Chipola Lady In-
dians (9-3) will return home
Wednesday night for the first
time in a month when they play
host to Brevard at 6 p.m.
It's a rematch of the season
opening game between the
teams on Nov. 1 in Melbourne, a
game that Chipola won 75-66.
Chipola is returning to action
after a 10-day break following a
pair of wins over Central Flori-
da and Florida State College at
Jacksonville.
Brevard (6-8) took two victo-


ries last weekend, 77-66 over
North Central Missouri, and 80-
59 over Highlands Community
College.
The Lady Titans have also tak-
en two wins over FSCJ and one
win over Central Georgia, while
taking losses to Santa Fe, Dayto-
na State, Hillsborough, and most
recently to Tallahassee 86-65.
"This will be good for us be-
cause it's kind of a gauge to see
what we've done with the first
part of the schedule," Chipola
coach David Lane said Monday.
The coach said that the first
game wasn't very pretty, and he


was hoping for a sharper per-
formance from his team in the
rematch.
"We were pretty rough of-
fensively," he said. "We gave
up some offensive rebounds.
We probably should have won
the game by 20 or so, but we let
them hit some shots late to close
the margin. Overall, we didn't
play great, but it's one of those
where you go out there and just
try to play and focus on yourself
and what you're doing.
"We should have a little more
attention to detail Wednesday
as far as what to expect out of


them than we had the first time
around."
Brevard may have an advan-
tage with having played last
weekend and Chipola coming
off of a 10-day break, and Lane
said he wouldn't be surprised if it
took his team a little while to get
back into the swing of things.
"I'm sure it will be a little bit
ugly at first with trying to get
back into a rhythm playing," he
said. "We're.focusing on that in
practice and trying to get back
into it a little more and focus

Indians stifle Florida State College at Jacksonville, Palm Beach, remain perfect on season


BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com
The No. 7 Chipola Indians
stayed perfect with a pair of wins
over state opponents over the
weekend in Gainesville, beating
Florida State College' at Jack-
sonville 61-42 on Saturday and
No. 9 Palm Beach State 55-52 on
Sunday.
The wins move the Indians -
also ranked No, 2 in the state to
a perfect 13-0 on the year.
Chipola did it with its trade-


mark defense in both games;
which was crucial given the
team's struggles at the other end
of the court.
The Indians shot just 8 of 24
from the field in the first half
against FSCJ and only led 26-20
at halftime before pulling away
Sin the second half.
They scored 35 in the second
half, but the team never really
broke out offensively in either
game.
"Really, for the whole weekend


we struggled to get the ball in
the basket," Chipola coach Jake
Headrick said. "(The FSCJ game)
was an early game and I don't
know how good of ajob our guys
did getting themselves ready to
go. We came out and it took them
a little bit to get going. We settled
for jump shots a little bit."
Unfortunately for the Indians,
they didn't make many of them,
going 0 for 5 from the 3-point
line in the first half.
It didn't get muchbetter against


Palm Beach, with Chipola con-
verting just 1 of 12 from long
range in that game, and shooting
34 percent from the field.
Chipola also shot 10 of 25 from
the free-throw line against Palm
Beach, and made just 18 of 40
from the charity stripe for the
weekend.,
"I.thought we played as bad
as we could play offensively
(against Palm Beach)," Headrick
said. "They probably deserved to
win because of how we played


offensively, but the difference
was that our guys found a will
to win. They held one of the
top teams in the country to 52
points, and probably 20 of the 52
points were off of our turnovers.
Our half-court defense was re-
ally, really'good."
That has been the consistent
element of the Indians' team
this season, as they have allowed
only two teams all year to break

Friday's game followed a 5-1
road win Thursday night against

For Friday's game, Marianna

positions.
Rounding out the defense and

With 25 minutes left in the first,
half, Barfield picked up the first
goal of the night.
Minutes before the half came
to an end, Mader found the
back of the box on an assist from
Barfield.
The Bulldogs would add anoth-

to go up 3-0 on a head shot by

Miami Dolphins fire Tony Sparano as coach


The Associated. Press

MIAMI Tony Sparano
has been fired as coach
of the Miami Dolphins,
the third dismissal of an
NFL coach in the past two
weeks.
The move came Mon-
day, one day after the Dol-
phiris lost to the Philadel-
phia Eagles to fall to 4-9.
The defeat ended a recent
surge by the Dolphins after
they lost their first seven
games.
With two other teams
already in the market for a
new coach, owner Stephen
Ross didn't want to wait
any longer to start shop-
ping. Sparano's dismissal
came hours after the Kan-
sas City Chiefs fired coach

team competed at the Capital.City

get one competitor to place in the
individual tournament format...
Alex Winskey took seventh in the
220-pound division, winning three,
of his five matches in the 32-team
tournament.
Marianna coach Ron Thoresori:
said he would have liked to have had
more of his wrestlers place, but giv-

happy with the effort.
"I knew it would be tough. There
were some bigger schools there and
some very tough competition. It's
a good gauge for what we would
see at regionals, but maybe even a

Bowles, who
had been
Miami's as-
sistant head
coach and
Sporano secondary
coach, will
be the interim head coach
for the final three games,
starting Sunday at Buffalo.
Jeff Ireland will remain
as general manager and
take part in the coaching
search.
The. Dolphins are as-
sured of their third con-
secutive losing season, the
longest such streak since
the 1960s. They'll miss the
playoffs for the ninth time


in 10 years.
"The results speak -for
themselves," Ross said at a
hastily called news confer-
ence. "We're looking to be,
coming a winning organi-
zation, and I thought this
was the best time to make
the change and let us go in
a direction that will allow
us to become that."
Ross is expected to pur-
sue a coach with star
power. Among those men-
tioned as possible candi-
dates are Bill Cowher, Jeff
Fisher and Jon Gruden.
"I'd like to find a young
Don Shula if that's pos-
sible," Ross said with a
smile.
Joining Ross at the news
conference was Ireland,
who hired Sparano in Mi-


happy with how everybody did. Of
course I would rather have 'more
people place. I would love for all of
them to place, but that's not how it
happens."
The Bulldogs were short-hand-
ed in missing four regulars: Cole
Thoreson (106-pound division), Ty-
ler Helms (113), AJ Ward (120) and
Blaine Hansford (138) were all out
with injuries.
Senior 170-pounder Dalton Hen-
drix also suffered a shoulder injury
early on in the event and will miss a
couple of weeks.
"We had a few injuries the last
couple of years, but this year it
seems like we've really been hit with
the injury bug," the coach said. "The
good thing now is that Ihave kids to
replace them. We have depth to re-
place the kids who are out. That's the
good thing about the depth we've

him in Dallas.
"It's a difficult day for
me," Ireland said. "He's
a friend of mine. He has.
been a colleague of mine
from before we got here
together."
With Ireland remaining
in charge of personnel, a
coach of Cowher's caliber
might not be interested
in coming to Miami. On
the other hand, Ireland
stressed the need for an
experienced coach, which
might rule out hiring an
assistant.
"You're looking for the
best candidate out there,
a guy who has been in the
trenches before," Ireland
said. "You're looking
for some of the same


been able to build. When a kid goes
out with injury, we've got another
.to step up and fill the slot and do a
-good job."
As a team, Marianna finished&25th
'out of the 32 teams, which the coach
put into perspective.' :
"That's the first time we've been
to that event in five or six years, so
I'l take that," Thoreson said. "There
were some high quality teams there,
some established programs ii the
state. That's a tough event, but it
was a good experience for the kids.
They got a preview of what to expect
when we go to regions."
The Bulldogs will next compete
at the Beast of the Beach on Friday
and Saturday at Fort Walton Beach
before getting three weeks off for
the Christmas Break and returning
Jan. 7 for the Timberwolf Duals in
Tallahassee.

16-point line, and so on down to the 1-point line, which game you figure to be a toss- up.
Next, fill in Tiebreaker 1, the total points scored by both teams in the week's designated
game. If this step fails to produce a winner, the judges will apply Tiebreaker 2, total
offensive yardage from scrimmage in this game. If a winner still doesn't emerge, a
drawing will be held among those contestants still tied. Decisions of the judges are final.
The weekly contestant from among all participating newspapers who tallies the most of
the 136 points will win $1000.
2. Any entry form that does not contain a legible name, address, etc. will be disqualified.
3. Entries that fail to forecast a winner from each and every game will be disqualified,
as will entries that fail to distinguish between the Jets and Giants of New York and other
similarsounding team names games.
4. No points are awarded on tie games or in case any game is not played for any reason
during its scheduled week.
5. Entering POWER POINTS constitutes permission by contestant for his or her name
and photograph to be used for news and reasonable promotional purposes at no charge.
6. Employees of this newspaper and their immediate families are ineligible to participate.
7. Any inquiry about or protest of weekly results must be made by noon on the Friday
following the announcement of winners.
8. No purchase necessary. Facsimile game entry forms will be accepted. Enter contest
by dropping entry form into POWER POINTS container at the Jackson County Floridan.
9. Weekly deadline for entry will be 2 p.m. Thursdaysexcept when noted otherwise on
weekly entry form.
10. Neither this newspaper nor any co-sponsor will be responsible for illegible entry
forms or those lost, stolen or damaged in any way or entries misdirected or arriving
postage due or for any claim or injury by contestants made in connection to any activity
involved in entering contest. Entrants assume all liabilities.
11. Limit: one entry per person per week. Each entry must represent the original work of
one entrant: "group" entries, "systems" or other attempts to enter multiple entries will be
disqualified. Filling out extra forms and putting your friends and relatives names on them
violates this rule. Any such entries are destroyed prior to grading.
12. Contestants must have reached the age of eight (8) years by the Sunday of any
week's play.

Horoscope
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-
Dec. 21) An ambitious
objective isn't apt to be
fulfilled, because it's likely
that you'll be willing to
wish for what you want but
not eager to work for it.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.
19) If you hear about
something that sounds
wonderful but requires
a large outlay of cash,
don't jump in without first
checking.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
19) Someone on whom
you're counting for, help
concluding a very compli-
cated matter might let you
down.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March
20) A job you've been
putting off for quite some
time might become a thorn'
in your side.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
Don't let your extrava-
gant whims overwhelm
your common sense and
land you in debt..
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
Some of your objectives.
aren't likely to be achieved,
because it isn't likely that
you'll get organized or be
persistent enough to do
what it takes to realize your
aims.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
Be very careful of what
you. voice about others,
even those who may de-
serve being put in his or
her place.
CANCER (June 21-July
22) If being friends with
someone is predicated
purely upon what they can
do for you, the relationship
is likely to fall flat.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
It wouldn't be smart to
get into a finger-pointing
contest with an associate
at work.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
It doesn't matter if it hap-
pens at work or in a social
setting, arguing political
intrigues is likely to cause
you some problems.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
The. change that you've
been awaiting might hap-
pen at last, but once it
does, you could wonder
why it was something you
thought you wanted.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov.
22) Before you lash out
about some unflattering
things being said about
you, perhaps it might be
wise to check it out first.


Nannies Mailbox


Dear Annie: I have been unemployed
since April, My former employers signed
a nondisclosure contract about the terms
of my resignation. But apparently, if'the
company to which I am applying asks the
right questions, they are told everything.
My question is: If my former employers
signed a nondisclosure agreement, how
can they disclose the nature of my resig-
nation under any'circumstances? I have
more than 20 years of experience in my
profession, but cannot find employment
because my former employer is divulging
information he contractually agreed not
to mention. Do I have any legal recourse
in this matter? I cannot afford an attor-
ney and do not know where else to turn.
RUINING MY REPUTATION

Dear Reputation: Are you sure your
former employers are doing this? Your
inability to find a job may have nothing
to co with them. In most circumstances
like yours, the previous employer would
sinoply write a neutral letter of recom-
mendation, neither praising you nor
trashing you. But if, in fact, a former
boss is violating the conditions of the
contract regarding your resignation, you


Bridge


South is in four spades. West leads the heart
ace. How should the play proceed? When West
makes a weak jump overcall, responder, with
support for his partner's major, bids one level
higher than he would have done without the
intervention. So, here, three spades would
show a decent single raise, four spades would
indicate a game-invitational limit raise, and
the four-heart cue-bid showed game-forcing
values in spades without saying anything about
his heart holding.
West leads the heart ace and East drops the
two, which must be a singleton when South
also follows. So West continues with his heart
king. What should East discard?
Obviously, East would like his partner to shift
to a club. He can try to achieve that by pitch-
ing either the diamond four (low discouraging)
or the club eight (high encouraging). It is much
better to place.the club eight onto the table.
The more spots on a card, the more likely part-
ner is to notice.
Then it should be the work of a moment for
West to lead the club 10, netting the first four
tricks for the defense.


may have cause to sue. However, you will
need a'lawyer. Try your state Legal Aid
Society or contact the National Legal Aid
and Defender Association (nlada.org) for
a referral. Also check local law schools to
see whether they might take your case.

Dear Annie: I read the letter from
"Beleaguered Mom," who expected her
mother-in-law to baby-sit. I don't have
kids, but as a registered nurse, I have a
similar problem.
Just because I-am an RN does not mean
I am running a 24/7 free health clinic. I
have been phoned at 11 p.m. by fellow
church congregants asking about benign
conditions that should be taken to their
own doctors. On a retreat weekend for
women only, the coordinator thought
it was appropriate that I be placed in a
bedroom with an actively hallucinating
schizophrenic whom I had never met.
She thought I could "help." Instead, I
didn't get a wink of sleep.
Please tell entitled people that trying to
fashion others into your instant thera-
pists or baby-sitters will alienate them
instead of bringing them closer.

Heat relishing a calmer start to season


THEASSOCIATED PRESS
Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard (left) jokes with team CEO
Alex Martins (second from left), Director of Communications
George Galante and Chairman Dan DeVos (right) during the
first day of training camp in Orlando on Friday.


Magic CEO Martins

meets with Howard,

hopes to keep him


The Associated Press

ORLANDO The rela-
tionship between Dwight
Howard and the Orlando
Magic appears to be im-
proving at least a bit.
Magic chief executive of-
ficer Alex Martins said he
sat down with the All-Star
center Monday morning,
a day after Howard said
he hadn't spoken to gen-
eral manager Otis Smith
since asking the team to be
traded,.
Martins said he remains
confident things still can
be done to convince How-
ard that Orlando can build
a championship team.
"We have to continue to
do what's right for this or-
ganization to win a cham-
pionship and the first piece
of that is keeping Dwight,"
Martins said at the team's
annual media day. "And
we're doing everything we
can to ensure that we do
that. All I would say from a
fan's standpoint is I believe,
I want them to believe and
I think we need to continue
to show Dwight that we do
want him here.... Our fans
need to make sure that we
show him the love."
Then, after speaking
at length for two straight
days about all that was
wrong with management,
Howard said that the door
remains open for him to
re-sign.
"As of a right now, I have
on a Magic uniform.... If it's
meant for me to stay here,
then I'll stay," Howard said.
"I love this city and there's
no place I'd rather be than


Orlando. I just want to
make sure that we have
the right things here so we
can win a championship.
And I'm all about change.
If you're willing to change
and willing do what it takes
to win, then you've got me.
"You only get one time
around the track. There's
no reset button. You don't
want to miss out on any
opportunity to win," How-
ard added. "You gotta do
what it takes to win."
Howard can opt out of
his current contract in July
2012. Smith has previously
given his agent, Dan Fegan,
perinission to speak with
New Jersey, Dallas and the
Los Angeles Lakers about
possible trades.
Martins said that despite
Howard's claim Sunday
that none of his input has
been taken into account by
management in regards to
what changes he'd like to
see the Magic make, that
the trade for Boston big
man Glen "Big Baby" Davis
was one they did do.
"It's a conversation,"
Martins said. "It's not a be
all, end all. And I do think
that.Dwight's input is im-
portant and we're gonna
continue to solicit Dwight's
input. But, the final deci-
sions rest on Otis. Otis is
the head of this basketball
operation. And he is the
only one that knows how all
the pieces will fit together
properly. And he can solicit
input from anyone and he
will solicit input.
"But at the end of the day,
it's Otis' decision to make,"
he said.


The Associated Press

MIAMI A season ago,
things seemed much dif-
ferent for the Miami Heat.
In South Florida, the team
was celebrated before
ever playing .a game. In
every other NBA market,
the Heat was maligned,
again before ever playing
a game.
There's a sense that is
now changing well,
maybe just a little bit.
Drama seems to be the
rule these days in many
NBA cities, but not Miami.
"I don't think anything
can be as bad as it was last
year," Heat forward LeB-
ron James said Monday.
For Miami, any change
would be a refreshing one,
especially if it means bas-
ketball can seem like the
top priority entering bas-
ketball season. It's a far
cry from last year's train-
ing camp, when all the
buzz and there was a
lot of.it around the Heat
was about how James
and Chris Bosh changed
teams to join Dwyane
Wade in Miami, whether a
so-called "superteam" was
good for the NBA and if
three stars could get along

happily while sharing one
ball.
"Look around. You re-
member how it was last
year it's nothing close,"
Bosh said. "This year, we
can concentrate on just
building our team..We
can concentrate on pick-
ing up where we left off.
I think that's huge for us.
We know what to expect.
There's nothing really sur-
prising us right now and


we can just work on focus-
ing to get better."
The team needed a po-
lice escort to their annual
media day in 2010, with
security lurking around
just about every hallway
inside the University of
Miami facility where that
annual meet-and-greet
session was taking place.
Reporters from four con-
tinents showed up. Press
conferences to start the


year were held in a cavern-
ous auditorium.
On Monday, media day
was tame by comparison.
"I heard some stories,"
new Heat center Eddy
Curry said. "I thought it'd
be a lot worse than this."
Expectations are still
high for Miami, of course.
Bringing virtually the en-
tire core .of last season's
Eastern Conference cham-
pionship-winning club
back would figure to put
the Heat ahead of some
teams who are dealing
with roster shakeups, the
distraction of potentially
moving some superstar-
level players, or even sim-
ply finding guys to sign to
contracts.
So as is not the case in
many NBA cities, things
seem calm in Miami right
now, and that's one of the
reasons why oddsmakers
in Las Vegas list the Heat
as favorites to win the
2012 title.
"We're still going to have
a lot of attention, of course,
and a lot of high expecta-
tions placed on this team
because of the fact that we
have three star players,"
said Heat forward Juwan
Howard.
