16-year-old girl missing since Friday


BY LAUREN DELGADO
Idelgado@jcfloridan.com

Rosemary Colvin, a 16-year-
old Marianna High School stu-
dent from Greenwood, has been
missing since Dec. 9.
Authorities believe she may be
with her biological father and/
or 18-to-21-year-old boyfriend,
identified as Danny Waters, in
either Wakulla COunty or Leon
County.
Rosemary's guardian, Melissa


Mays, last saw her at 6 a.m..on
Friday. Mays' daughter later
tried to get Rosemary up and on
the school bus, but Rosemary re-
fused. She instead began to walk
to school and was given a ride by
an unknown woman. Mays said
Rosemary made it to school and
told her friends she was leaving
with her father and boyfriend.
That's the last anyone has
physically seen of Rosemary.
She has posted several pictures
and contacted friends through


Facebook.
It seems that Rosemary had
been planning to leave.. Mays
found a list Rosemary wrote,
in order to not forget several
things homework, clothing,
medication,
Rosemary is currently on med-
ication and only took a three-day
supply with her.
Anyone with information
please call the Jackson County
Sheriff's Office at 850-482-9624 or
Crimestoppers at 850-526-5000.

Center receives supplies, repairs and volunteers


BY LAUREN DELGADO
Idelgado@jcfloridan.com


H.E.L.P.S. wants to
thank the com-
munity and the city
for its support, especially
toward the McLane Com-
munity Center.
The non-profit organiza-
tion runs an after school
program that gives area*
kids a safe place to do their
homework and meet or
hang out with friends.
A few months ago, the
center needed a number of
repairs and supplies to keep
up with the number of chil-
dren using the facility. The
community heard that call
and responded, said Angela
McFarland, who works at
the center.
"This is a very giving com-
munity," McFarland said. '
"They want to help."
Snacks, new computers, a
copy machine, toys, school
supplies and resource
materials are just a few of
the donations the center
received. It was able to feed
60 children a Thanksgiving
meal and plans to do the
same in the spirit of Christ-


mas on Dec. 22.
As foi the repairs, the City
of Marianna has installed
new sinks, worked on the
kitcheft, and placed wood
chips on the playground.
Plans for redoing the
center's floors are also in the
works.
Even more amazing than
the supplies or the repairs,
McFarland said, was the
number of people volun-
teering their time. Local
Teachers and high school
students are tutoring the
younger children. A Char-
acter First and 4-H program
have been implemented as -
well.
"I'm excited to see how we
can grow and help our kids
be better citizens," McFar-
land said.
, H.E.L.PS. wants to expand
its services in the future
to include services for the
elderly locals, like chess
tournaments or free coffee.
McFarland said she wants to
see the center open from 9
a.m. until 9 p.m.
"We want to have projects
that the whole family can
participate in," McFarland
said .


Tamera Pope, Majic McNealy and Shante Holland sit talking on the
steps of the McLane Community Center.

BY LAUREN DELGADO
Idelgado@jcfloridan.com
IWo more of the eight Jackson County
residents involved with a 15-person
meth ring discovered in May were sen-
tenced on Dec. 7.
Rowdy Dewayne Gilbert of Mari-
anna was sentenced to four years and
three months in prison for conspiracy
to distribute a controlled substance.
Judge Richard Smoak additionally rec-
ommended that he receive substance
abuse treatment while incarcerated.
Octavio Gonzalez-Flores of Marianna
was sentenced to four years and nine
months in prison for conspiracy to dis-
tribute a controlled substance and sell-
ing, distributing and/or dispensing a
controlled substance.
The last Jackson County resident in-
volved in the ring, Bobby Jene Kent, is
scheduled to be sentenced on Jan. 18.
According to a federal criminal com-
plaint, the defendants aided in trans-
porting methamphetamine each week
between April 2010 and May 21, 2011,

Man allegedly

steals tractor,

drives it away
From staff reports
Law enforcement officers routinely
pull over cars, trucks and the occa-
sional RV when drivers have violated
some rule of the road. But on Tuesday,
a Jackson County deputy pulled over a
tractor.
The driver, 36-year-old
I Malone resident Tracy Al-
Slen Benton, was arrested
I on a grand theft charge.
He is accused of stealing
I the farm vehicle from an
Benton owner in Malone a few
hours earlier.
According to a press release from the
Jackson County Sheriff's Office, a wit-
ness had called authorities around 3
p.m. that day to say they believed the
tractor was being stolen at that time.
Responding deputies could not at
first find the vehicle or a suspect. But
then one officer discovered fresh trac-
tor tire tracks on a dirt road in the area.
He followed the tracks, which led him
to find Benton driving the red Belarus
250 model on 3rd Ave. The tractor was
returned to the owner and Benton was
taken to jail.

Baptist College of Florida graduates celebrate


Special to the Floridan

Although they occur like
clockwork every semes-
ter, graduations at The
Baptist College of Florida
in Graceville are still wel-
comed with jubilation
and excitement from each
graduating class. Friday,
Dec. 9 was no different as
degrees were conferred on
50 seniors in the Assembly
Center at 10 a.m.
Black caps and flow-
ing gowns filled the aisles
when graduates marched
into the building as the
BCF Brass Ensemble, un-
der the direction of Profes-
sor Ron Branning, played
'the traditional "Pomp
and Circumstance." The
commencement service
officially began with the
invocation led by Jack-
sonville Site Director Joe
Molina and followed by
Music and Worship Divi-
sion Chair Bill Davis lead-
ing the congregation in
hymn favorite "Great is


Thy Faithfulness."
BCF President Thomas A.
Kinchen welcomed guests
and recognized the fam-
ily members of graduating
seniors. The new English
Professor David Grier then
joined Kinchen at the po-
dium to sign the Articles of
Faith pledging to uphold
the Christian doctrines
and standards of The Bap-
tist College of Florida.
The Male Chorale pro-
vided the special music se-
lection entitled "Then Will
the Very Rocks Cry Out,"
before Kinchen addressed
the graduating class. Senior
Vice President R.C. Ham-
mack presented the gradu-
ating seniors to Kinchen as
recommended by the reg-

Day. This day represents
the culmination of hard
work and determination
for many graduates as
they were recognized for
having achieved academic
honors.
Senior Class President
John Paul Linton led the
service beginning with a
time ofworship, praise and
prayer. Senior Class Vice
President Ryan Stinson in-
troduced the class project
and presented BCF Presi-
dent Thomas A. Kinchen

Investigators: Possible fraud uncovered at FAMU


The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE Authorities
looking into the death of a Flor-
ida A&M University drum major
opened a new investigation after:
they uncovered possible em-
ployee fraud and misconduct at
the school, according to docu-
ments released Wednesday.
Meanwhile, there was more
fallout in Georgia. An Atlanfa-
area school district suspended
all marching band activities at
21 high schools over concerns of
"inappropriate physical activity"
between students.,. ,;.
Two alleged victims of hai -
ing at Florida A&M were in the
Southwest DeKalb High march-
ing band, which was one of those
suspended.


"Our interest is in protecting
students, the safety of the stu-
dents," said district spokesman
Walter Woods, who would not
say whether the inappropriate
activity involved hazing. "We
have notified schools to be vigi-
lant of our existing policy, which
is zero tolerance for harassment
of any kind."
In Florida, the state law en-
forcement agency sent letters
to the head of the FAMU board
and the head of the state uni-
versiry system, but they did not
detailithe potential fraud or mis-
conduct, saying only that it in-
volves school employees as well
as "persons associated" with the
university.
The school's president, James
Ammons was hired more than


four years ago as part of an ef-
fort to clear up past problems at
the university. State audits found
that some financial records
could not be verified and there
was questionable contracting.
The college also could not ac-
count for millions of dollars in
inventory.
A FAMU spokeswoman said
she had not seen the letters
and could not immediately
comment.
Last week, the school's board
of trustees publicly reprimanded
Ammons after a contentious de-
bate on whether he should have
been placed on leave.
Solomon Badger, chairman of
the FAMU board, said the uni-
versity would cooperate with the
new investigation.


"I didn't know anything about
the fraud and I still don't," Bad-
ger said.
Investigators uncovered the
potential fraud while looking
into what is believed to be the
hazing death of Robert Cham-
pion, a Marching 100 band
member.
Champion died Nov. 19 after
he was found unresponsive on a
bus parked in front of an Orlan-
do hotel after the FAMU football
team lost to a rival school.
Three weeks before his death,
FAMU freshman and clarinet
player Bria Hunter told police
she was beaten badly by mem-
bers of the "Red Dawg Order," a
band club that was for Georgia
natives. Both Champion and
Hunter were from there.


Three band members were
arrested in Hunter's case and
charged with hazing. Two were
also charged with battery.
University officials suspended
the famed Marching 100 band
from performances until the
investigation into his death is
completed.
Ammons also fired band di-
rector Julian White and expelled
four students connected to
Champion's death.
But the university rescinded
those decisions and instead
placed White on administrative
leave at the urging of the state
law enforcement agency. Au-
thorities said they did not want
disciplinary actions to interfere
with the criminal investigation
into Champion's death.

Woman receives -
kidney after sting
Craigslist ad
MIAMI A woman is
recovering in a Miami hos-
pital after receiving a new
kidney after posting a plea
for help on Craigslist.
Selina Hodge posted a
plea online in July asking
for someone to donate a
kidney. The 28-year-old
then turned to Craigslist.
She told WPTV she
"didn't know where else to
turn."
Hodge received more
than 800 responses from,
all over the world from her
Craigslist ad. One came
from 23-year-old Stepha-
nie Grant, who lived just
a few miles away from
Hodge in Palm Beach
Gardens.
The two drove together :
to the Universiry of Miami
Medical Center Campus
several times to complete
the evaluations. After
months of waiting, the
women underwent trans-
plant surgery Tuesday.
Both are recovering in
the hospital.

Miami kidnapper gets
life sentence
MIAMI- The man pros-
ecutors say masterminded
a bizarre kidnapping of a
man who was lured to a
Miami motel from a strip
club has been sentenced
to life in prison.
Miami-Dade Circuit
Judge Diane Ward noted
31-year-old Johnny Haug-
abook's violent criminal
history Tuesday before
doling out the sentencing.
A jury convicted Hauga-
book of armed kidnapping
and burglary.
The Miami Herald re-
ports Haugabook concoct-
ed a kidnapping scheme
to raise money to get his
repossessed car back. His
girlfriend lured Rony Bent
to a motel, where Hauga-
book beat him and took
him on a shopping spree
using Bent's credit cards.
Bent's family began a
frantic search for him.
Police finally located Bent
afterr he convinced the


kidnapper to let him call
'home. Police traced the
call, surrounded the house
and arrested Haugabook.

Police: Power plant
deaths accidental
LAKELAND Police
believe two people found
dead at a central Florida
power plant may have
hitched a ride on a coal
train:
Lakeland police spokes-
woman Ann Dinges says
the deaths of a man and a
woman found this week at
the Lakeland electric plant
appear to be accidental.
Dinges told the Ledger
ofLakeland authorities
believe the victims died
when the boxcar was be-
ing emptied. However, she
says an investigation is
underway.
She says the boxcar
opens from the bottom
to empty the coal and the
forceful movement likely
caused the blunt force
trauma that killed the
woman and asphyxiated
the man.
Officials say workers
found the bodies as they
,sorted the coal into piles..
The shipment arrived
-Saturday fromTerre Haute,
Ind.
No further details were
immediately available.

Leonce Charles made his
initial appearance Tues-
day. He is charged with
second-degree murder.
The Orlando Sentinel re-
ports Charles is suspected
of killing his 46-year-old,
girlfriend Cecile Freus.
Their children found her
dead in her bed early
Saturday.
Deputies say Charles
told investigators he
"blacked out from anger"
and stabbed Freus during

Fla. muck a factor in Daytona mastodon find


The Associated Press

DAYTONA BEACH
- Workers recently stum-
bled upon remains of an
-Ice Age mastodon on a
construction site, and
experts say Florida has a
unique collection of natu-
ral conditions that make
it one of the best places
in the nation to find pre-
served fossils.
The dark black muck
that surrounded the mast-
odon bones is nothing
visually appealing, but
it's one of the key pieces
of scientific magic that
helped preserve the fos-
silized remains found in a
half-built retention pond
near the intersection of
Mason Avenue and Nova
Road.
The muck chokes off any
oxygen that would cause
decay and entombs what-
ever is in it, paleontology
experts say.
The protective muck,
mineral-filled natural
springs with constant
temperatures, low-lying
swampy areas, abundant
limestone and naturally
occurring phosphate i.n
Florida soils have all pre-
served pieces of history
that would have otherwise
vanished tens of thou-
sands of years ago, those
experts say.
The many layers of soils,
steady warm air tempera-
tures and low-lying coast-
al areas, where deceased
animals can be covered up
quickly, also help. '
"We've probably all
walked over fossils 'and
skeletons and never
known it," said lames
"Zach" Zacharias, an',edl-
cation and history cura-
tor at the Museum of Arts
& Sciences in Daytona
Beach. "This whole area
up and down Nova Road
must have been teeming
with Ice Age mammals."
Some have dubbed parts
of Central Florida "Bone
Valley" because of the fos-
sils found here.
"In Florida we have a
rich .fossil .layer that rims
through the state," said
Russell Brown, president
of the Orlando-based
Florida Fossil Hunters
group and an amateur
paleontologist.
One of the only reasons
animal bones and teeth
thousands of years old
aren't found more often
is because there's usually
no good reason to dig 10
to 15 feet down. But when
workers creating South
Daytona's Reed Canal Park
in 1975 started peeling

away the layers of earth,
they found the full skele-
ton of a giant ground sloth
in muck there.
When workers building
the city government re-
tention pond near Mason
and Nova were hitting that
10-foot level about a week
ago, they stumbled on
the mastodon's jaw along
with some other bone
fragments.
Amateur paleontolo-
gists and volunteers from
the Museum of Arts &
Sciences were allowed to
look around the 4-acre
retention pond, and they
started finding' things
most every day last week.
They've unearthed most
of the two tusks, parts of
the skull, ribs, vertebrae,
teeth, a partial leg bone,
a joint of some sort and
various bone pieces they
haven't idetified-y~t.
The remains have been
there for at least 13,000
years, when that type of
mastodon went extinct,
but the animal could have
died as long as 130,000
years ago.
The paleontologists and
museum officials say they
think they've got an adult
male mastodon -100,000
years old by their best
guess for now but they
aren't confident they're go-
ing to find its full skeleton.
They're afraid the reten-
tion pond workers might
have unwittingly sent
some mastodon remains
through a rock crusher,
not realizing what was in
their piles of'dirt.
The paleontologists and
museum officials have
had their kids helping sift
through debris piles at the
site, but Zacharias said
most of those kids have
been on sites before and
they'd know enough to
distinguish between re-
mains and rocks.
They also say it's possi-
ble the full skeleton wasn't
preserved there. Maybe
other animals, ancient riv-
ers or ocean tides carried
off pieces.
They plan to make today
their last day to search un-
less construction work-
ers on the site stumble
on more remains. At the
city's request, a St. Augus-
tine archaeologist is ten-

tatively scheduled to be
on site Monday to look for
Native American remains
and artifacts.
Even if nothing else is
found, the paleontologists
will still count it as an in-
credible find.
"It's -pretty rare to find
the full skeleton," Zacha-
rias said.
There are only about
12 known full mastodon
skeletons that have been
found in Florida, said
Richard Hulbert, verte-
brate paleontology col-
lections manager at the
Florida Museum of Natu-
ral History in Gainesville. ,
S"Mostly we find pieces
of mastodons and mam-
moths in rivers," said Val-
erie First, a historian for
Florida Fossil Hunters.
First said she also knows
of small mastodon tusks
found .near New Smyrna
Beach about 10 years ago
when a road was being
built. Zacharias said the
mastodon remains found
in Daytona Beach have
been put in locked stor-
age at the museum. The
next step will be cleaning
them, examining them
and seeing if some of the
fragments fit together.
First cautioned the
bones will need to be
dried out gradually, or else
they could "disintegrate
into powder.".
Eventually the museum
would like to display them,
possibly near the sloth.
When the sloth and
mastodon were wander-
ing Volusia County, the
terrain was pretty differ-
ent, various experts said.
That would have been
during the Ice Age, when
sea level could have been
about 300 feet lower,
Florida would have been
about three times as wide
and Daytona Beach would
Shave been nowhere near
the coast, Hulbert said.
Glaciers would have
expanded down to the
Midwest, Florida's tem-
peratures would have
been cooler and there
could have been moder-
ate amounts of snow in
the winter.
Daytona Beach also


would have been on
higher ground relative to
the ocean, and the plant
life would have been a
little different, experts
say. There would have
been savanna-like areas
where animals could have
grazed, they say.
The mastodons would


have preferred to be near
water, and would have
been along rivers and the
ocean.
The spot where the Day-
tona mastodon was found
"was probably a drain-
age area like the St. Johns
River, or a coastal lowland
area," Zacharias said. "It
was very mucky."
That muck was an ideal
spot for preservation, as
is water that also prevents
the decaying effects of
oxygen.
"There's a good chance
here for animals to land
in rivers, springs, lagoons
and muck," Brown said.
"Anything to keep out air."
Over many thousands
of years, layer after layer
built up over the ancient
animal remains, he said.
The muck surrounding
the Daytona mastodon
preserved much of the
original bone material,
Zacharias said.
"The bone still looks and
feels like original bone,"
he said. "There's not much
mineralization."
Sandy marine layers
with shells don't do much
for preservation, he said.
The phosphate found in
Florida's soil can strength-
en bone, which helps pre-
serve it, said Jimmy Wal-
dron, a former president
of Florida Fossil Hunters.

Religion amendment at least


temporarily off Fla. ballot


The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE -A proposal that would
repeal Florida's ban on public funding of
churches and other religious organiza-
tions is off the November 2012 ballot, at
least temporarily.
Circuit Judge Terry Lewis on Wednesday
removed the proposed state constitution-
al amendment due to a misleading ballot
summary, but he also upheld-a provision
of the state's new election law that will let
Attorney General Pam Bondi rewrite it to
fix the problem. He also rejected a chal-
lenge to the amendment's title, "Religious
Freedom."
More than half of the states have similar
"no aid" provisions in their constitutions.
It was a good news-bad news result for
Amendment 7's supporters and oppo-
nents alike.
The proposal was challenged by orga-
nizations representing Florida's public
school teachers, school boards and ad,
ministrators and their leaders as well as
several clergymen who advocate the sep-
aration of church and state.
"Many years ago one of our greatest
philosophers, Meatloaf, said 'Two Out of
Three Ain't Bad,' said Rep.. Scott Plakon,
a Longwood Republican who was the
prime sponsor in the House. Lewis "even
seemed to tee up a potential solution for
the attorney general."
Bondi called the summary problem
"easily fixable." She said she would con-
sult with the Legislature and Depart-
ment of State to determine how best to
proceed. j
"It will give us a second bite at the ap-
ple," said Sen. Thad Altman, a Viera Re-


publican who sponsored the amendment
in the Senate. "We want to get it right."
Ron Meyer, a lawyer for the plaintiffs,
said no decision had yet been made on
whether to appeal the rewrite ruling, but
he was pleased with Lewis' decision on
the ballot summary.
"It's a cleat example of the Legislature
trying to conceal the true purpose and
effect the. passage of this amendment
would have," Meyer said.
That effect would be to lift a potential
legal obstacle to school vouchers that let
students attend parochial and other pri-
vate schools at taxpayer expense.
The ballot summary says nothing about
vouchers, but that's not why Lewis found
it unacceptable.
A phrase saying the amendment would
be "consistent with the United States
Constitution" is ambiguous and mis-
leading because the proposal's text says
something.else, Lewis wrote.
Besides repealing the existing "no aid"
provision, the amendment would do the
opposite. It would prohibit state and local
governments from denying funds, ben-
efits or other support based on religious.
identity or belief "except to the extent
required" by the U.S. Constitution's First
Amendment.
The difference between "consistent"
with the First Amendment in the sum-
mary and "except to the extent required"
in the text is significant, Lewis wrote. He
noted the state proposal would in fact be
inconsistent with the First Amendment
because the U.S. Supreme Court has
ruled it allows public funding of religious
organizations but does not require it as
the state amendment would.


Obama administration says


young adults gain coverage


The Associated Press

WASHINGTON Young
adults trying to get trac-
tion in a tough economy
aie getting a welcome as-
sist: the new federal health
care law has markedly
improved their access to
health insurance.
The. number of young
Americans ages 19-25 lack-
ing health insurance has
shrunk by 2.5 million since
President Barack Obama's
health care overhaul took
effect, the administration
announced in an analysis
released Wednesday;
That drop is 2V times as
large as the decline indicat-
ed byprevious government
and private estimates from
earlier this year, which
showed about 1 million
had gained coverage.
The improvement comes
even as the uninsured rate
stayed basically stuck for
those a little older, ages
26-35.
Under the health care.
overhaul, adult children
can stay on a parent's plan
until they turn 26, a provi-
sion that has proven popu-
lar in an otherwise divisive
law.
Health and Human Ser-
vices Secretary Kathleen
Sebelius said the numbers
show the law is making a


big difference for families
with adult children.
"Many of them gained-
coverage earlier this spring,
meaning the law was there
for young people as they
graduated from college
or high school and began
their careers," she said.
The health care law's
main push to cover the un-
insured doesn't come until
2014. But the young adults'
provision took effect last
fall, and most workplace
health plans started car-
rying it out Jan. 1. Since
then, families have flocked
to sign up adult children
making the transition


to work in a challenging
environment.
The overall fate of
.Obama's law remains un-
certain, with the Supreme
Court scheduled to hear a
constitutional challenge
next year, and Republican
presidential candidates
vowing to repeal it. But this
provision seems to have
gotten a seal of approval

White House says no



veto of defense bill


The Associated Press

WASHINGTON The
White House on Wednes-
day abandoned its threat
that President Barack
Obama would veto a de-
fense bill over provisions
on how to handle sus-
pected terrorists as Con-
gress raced to finish the
legislation.
Press secretary Jay Car-
ney said last-minute
changes that Obama and
his national security team
sought produced legisla-
tion that "does not chal-
lenge the president's abil-
ity to collect intelligence,
incapacitate dangerous
terrorists and protect the
American people."
Based on the modifi-
cations, "the president's
senior advisers will not
recommend a veto," the
White House said.
The statement came just
moments after the House
wrapped up debate on the
$662 billion bill that would
authorize money for mili-
tary personnel, weapons
systems, the wars in Iraq
and Afghanistan and na-
tional security programs
in the Energy Department
in the budget year that be-
gan Oct. 1.
The House was expected
to vote for the measure
later Wednesday. The Sen-
ate planned to wrap up
the bill in the evening and
send it to Obama.
The White House had
threatened a veto over
the detainee provisions.
Specifically, the bill would
require that the military
take custody of a suspect
deemed to bea member
of al-Qaida or its affiliates
and who is involved in
plotting or committing at-

tacks on the United States.
There is an exemption for
U.S. citizens.
House and Senate ne-
gotiators announced late
Monday that they had
modified that provision.
They added language that
says nothing in the bill will
affect "existing criminal
enforcement and national
security authorities of the
FBI or any other domestic
law enforcement agency"
with regard to a captured.
suspect, "regardless of
whether such.... person is
held in military custody."
The bill also says the
president can waive the
provision based on na-
tional security.
"While we remain con-
cerned about the uncer-
tainty that this law will
create for our counterter-
rorism professionals, the
most recent changes give
the president additional
discretion in determining
how the law will be imple-
mented, consistent with
our values and the rule of
law, which are at the heart
of our country's strength,"
Carney said.


Uncertainty was a major
concern of FBI Director
Robert Mueller, who ex-
pressed serious reserva-
tions about the detainee
provisions.
Testifying before the
Senate Judiciary Commit-
tee, Mueller said a coordi-
nated effort by the mili-
tary, intelligence agencies
and law enforcement has
weakened al-Qaida and
captured or killed many.
of its leaders, including
Osama bin Laden and
Anwar al-Awlaki. He sug-
gested that the divisive
provision in the bipartisan
defense bill would deny
that flexibility and prove
impractical.
"The statute lacks clarity
with regard to what hap-
pens at the time of arrest.
It lacks clarity with regard
to what happens if we had
a case in Lackawanna,
New York, and an arrest
has to be made there and
there's no military within
several hundred miles,"
Mueller said.
The legislation also
would deny suspected ter-
rorists the right to trial.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE PHOTO
In this Aug. 5, 2010 photo, a rescue worker is seen at the scene of an accident near Gray
Summit, Mo. Federal safety investigators say a 19-year-old driver was texting at the time his
pickup truck, two school buses and other vehicles collided in a deadly pileup on an interstate

Feds urge states to ban


testing, talldng on roads


The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES Ren Bishop is one of
many American drivers who texts, tweets
and talks on her cellphone while she's be-
hind the wheel and thinks it should be
up to drivers to use their discretion when
it comes to safety.
Though she admits thumbing her
phone while driving is bad habit, the Uni-
versity of Missouri student says drivers
"are mature enough to understand when
it is appropriate and when it is not."
The National Transportation Safety
Board disagrees, and it declared Tuesday.
that texting, mailing or chatting while
driving is simply too dangerous to be al-
lowed anywhere in the United States.
The board is urging all states to im-
pose total bans except for emergencies
following recent deadly crashes, includ-
ing one in Missouri after a teenager sent
or received 11 text messages within 11
minutes.
The unanimous recommendation from
the five-member board would apply even
to hands-free devices, a much stricter
rule than any current state law.
NTSB chairwoman Deborah Hersman
acknowledged that complying would
involve changing what has become in-
grained behavior for manyAmericans,
"We're not here to win a popularity con-
test," she said. "No email, no text, no up-
date, no call is worth a human life."
Currently, 35 states and the District:
of Columbia ban texting while driving,
while nine states and Washington, D.C.,
bar hand-held cellphone use. Thirty
states ban all cellphone use for beginning
drivers. But enforcement is generally not
a high priority, and no states ban the use
of hands-free devices for all drivers.
The immediate impetus for the NTSB's
recommendation was last year's deadly
pileup near Gray Summit, Mo., involving
a 19-year-old pickup driver.
The board said the initial collision was


caused by the teen's inattention while
texting a friend about events of the previ-
ous night. The pickup, traveling 55 mph,
hit the back of a tractor truck that had
slowed for highway construction. The
pickup was rear-ended by a school bus,
and a second school bus rammed into the
back of the first bus.
The pickup driver and a 15-year-old
student on one of the buses were killed.
Thirty-eight other people were injured.
In Missouri, testing is illegal for driv-
ers 21 and younger, which means the law
would' have applied to the 19-year-old.
But the ban isn't aggressively enforced,
NTSB member Robert Sumwalt said.
"Without the enforcement, the laws
don't mean a whole lot," he said.
The law didn't apply to 22-year-old
Bishop when she was pulled over Mon-
day night for swerving while texting on
the University of Missouri campus.
She blames a late night and schoolwork.
The officer who stopped her told her to
put her phone in the back seat and sent
her home with a warning.
"I definitely have the bad habit of tweet-
ing and driving, texting and driving, and
updating my Facebook status," Bishop
said. "I probably shouldn't but the tech-
nology makes it too easy.",
About two out of 10 American drivers
overall and half of drivers between 21
and 24 say they've thumbed messages
or emailed from the driver's seat, accord-
ing to a survey of more than 6,000 driv-
ers by the National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration.
At any given moment last year on Amer-
ica's streets and highways, nearly one in
every 100 car drivers was texting, email-
ing, surfing the Web or otherwise using
a hand-held electronic device, the safety
administration said. Those activities were
up 50 percent over the previous year.
NTSB investigators said they are seeing
increasing texting, cellphone calls and
other distracting behavior by drivers.


Google donating $11.5M


to fight modern slavery


The Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO -Tech
giant Google announced
Wednesday it .is donating
$11.5 million to' several
coalitions fighting to end
the modern-day slavery
of some 27 million people
around the world.
In what is believed to
be the largest-ever corpo-
rate grant devoted to-the
advocacy, intervention
and rescue of people be-
ing held, forced to work or
provide sex against their
will, Google said it chose
organizations with prov-
en records in combating
slavery.
"Many people are sur-
prised to learn there are
more people trapped in
slavery today than any
time in history," said Jac-
quelline Fuller,, director
of charitable giving and
advocacy for Google. "The
good news is that there are
solutions."
The Washington-based
International Justice Mis-
sion, a human rights or-
ganization that works
globally to rescue victims
of slavery and sexual ex-
ploitation, was chosen by
Google to lead the efforts.
It will partner with Po-
laris' Project and Slavery
Footprint and a handful
of smaller organizations
for the multi-year effort
to rescue the enslaved,
push for better infrastruc-
ture and resources for
Janti-slavery enforcement


"It's hardfor most
Americans to believe
that slavery and human
trafficking are still
massive problems in our
world."
GaryA. Haugen,
president of the International
Justice Mission

agencies overseas, as well
as raise awareness here in
the United States and help
countries draft anti-slavery
legislation.
"Each year we focus
some of our annual giving
on meeting direct human
need," Fuller said. "Google
chose to spotlight the issue
of slavery this year because
there is nothing more fun-
damental than freedom."
Gary A. Haugen, presi-
dent of the International
Justice Mission, said the
coalition would focus on
three initiatives: A $3.5
million intervention proj-
ect to fight forced labor in
India; a $4.5 million ad-
vocacy campaign in India
to educate and protect
the vulnerable; and a $1.8
million plan to mobilize
Americans on behalf of the
millions currently at risk of
slavery or waiting for res-
cue around the world.
The remaining $1.7
million will go to several
smaller organizations that
are working to combat
slavery.
"It's hard for most Ameri-


cans to believe that slavery
and human trafficking are
still massive problems in
our world," said Haugen.
"Google's support now
makes it possible for IJM
to join forces with two oth-
er leading organizations
so we can bring to bear
our unique strengths.in a
united front."
The new effort will
launch new initiatives that
ordinary Americans can
take to help abolish mod-
ern-day slavery, such as
understanding how their
own clothing or smart-
phones might contain fab-
rics or components manu-
factured by forced labor.


Obama marking




end of Iraq war

Tne Associated Press ,'" .--

FORT BRAGG, N.C. -
- President Barack' ,-., . ....


THEASSOCIATED PRESS
President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama wave
prior to boarding Air Force One at Andrews Air Force Base,
Md., on Wednesday.


Obama saluted return-
ing troops returning from
Iraq Wednesday, declaring
that the nearly nine-year
conflict is ending honor-
ably, "not with a final bat-
tle, but with a final march
toward home."
Marking the conclusion
of the war at this military
base that's seen more than
200 deaths over nearly
nine years of fighting in
Iraq, Obama never tried
to declare victory. It was a
war that he opposed from
the start, inherited as pres-
ident and is now bringing
to a close, leaving behind
an Iraq still struggling.
But he sought to de-.
clare a noble end to a fight
that has cost nearly 4,500
American lives and left
about 32,000 wounded.
"The war in Iraq will
soon belong to history,
and your service belongs
to the ages," he said, ap-
plauding their "extraordi-
nary achievement."
All U.S. troops are to be
out of Iraq Dec. 31, though
Obama has pledged the
U.S. will continue civilian
assistance for Iraq as it
faces an uncertain future
in a volatile region of the
world. Even as majorities
in the U.S. public favor
ending the war, some Re-
publicans have criticized
Obama's withdrawal, ar-
guing he's leaving behind
an unstable Iraq that could
hurt U.S. interests and fall
subject to influence from
neighboring Iran.
Obama, appearing with
first lady Michelle Obama,
highlighted the human
side of the war, reflecting
on the bravery and sac-
rifices of U.S. forces now
on their way back home.
He recalled the start of the


battles that defeated and
deposed Saddam Hus-
sein and what he called
"the grind of insurgency"
- roadside bombs, snip-
ers and suicide attacks.
"Your will proved stron-
ger than the terror of
those who tried to break
it," he said.
Upon his arrival in Fort
Bragg Wednesday, Obama
met with five enlisted ser-
vice members who had
recently returned from
combat. He also met with
the family of a soldier
killed overseas.
Obama has on several
occasions addressed his
reasons for ending the
war, casting it as a prom-
ise kept after he ran for
president as an anti-war
candidate and speaking
of the need to refocus U.S.
attention on rebuilding
-the troubled economy at
home.
It's the president's first
visit to Fort Bragg, which
is home to Army Special
Operations and the 82nd
Airborne, among others:


NC governor vetoes


death-row racial bias bill


The Associated Press

RALEIGH, N.C. North
Carolina's governor on
Wednesday halted a Re-
publican effort to dis-
mantle a law that gives
death row inmates a new
way to use racial, bias as
an argument for appeal-
ing their sentences.
Gov. Beverly Perdue
vetoed a bill that would
have essentially repealed
2009's Racial Justice Act,
which was designed to
address concerns that
race has played a role in
sentencing prisoners to
death.
The law says a judge
must reduce a death
sentence to life in prison
without parole if he de-
termines race was a sig-
nificant factor to impose
the penalty. It creates a
new kind of court hearing
where prisoners can use
statistics to make their
case to a judge. North

amid one constant: the

Congress weighingthe


length ofjobless benefits


The Associated Press

WASHINGTON Is there any down-
side to extending federal jobless benefits,
as Congress is about to do? The benefits
are a crucial lifeline to the longtime un-
employed. But they also can be a disin-
centive to looking for work and prolong
joblessness, economists say, as lawmak-
-ers weigh shortening them.
If Congress does nothing, the current
law that provides federal benefits to aug-
ment state assistance that last for only 26
weeks will expire at the end of this month.
As a result, more than a million out-of-
work Americans could lose their benefits
in January, and total of five million could'
lose them by year's end.
The Republican-led House has passed a
bill that extends the coverage but gradu-
ally reduces the ceiling on .federal and
state benefits combined from 99 weeks to I
59 weeks by mid-2012.
At the heart of the controversy is some-
thing economists and politicians have
long debated. Conservatives argue that
prolonging government assistance to the
unemployed can discourage active job
searching so long as it lasts, keeping job-
less rates higher than they would be if aid.
were ended.
Supporters of a full new extension, in-
cluding President Obama and most con-
gressional Democrats, argue that these
are unusually dire times and that jobs are
harder to find than after run-of-the-mill
recessions. Therefore, additional aid is
warranted and can contribute directly to
economic growth, they say.
Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody's
Analytics, backs the full extension be-
cause "it is needed and necessary given
the stress in the labor market."
"But this is not a slam-dunk positive,"
Zandi said. "There is something to the ar-
gument that the length of unemployment
benefits creates disincentives to work."
He said some studies found that benefit
extensions have added as much as half a
percentage point to the unemployment
rate. That would suggest the most re-
cent unemployment rate, for November,
would be 8.1 percent rather than 8.6 per-
cent. "Still, on net, the positives outweigh
the negatives," Zandi said.
Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a former head of
the Congressional Budget Office who was
2008 GOP presidential nominee John Mc-
Cain's top economic adviser, said there
are both benefits and costs to extending
the benefits.
"It gives them some cash and allows
them time to perhaps find a better match,
a better job for them in the future." But
Holtz-Eakin also said "there is unambigu-
ous evidence that longer unemployment


"There is something to the
argument that the length of
unemployment benefits creates
disincentives to work. Still, on
net, the positives outweigh the
negatives."

insurance extends spells of unemploy-
ment" and is especially hard on older
workers whose skills diminish the longer
they're out of work.
"You've got to figure where to draw
the line. There's no magic number," said
Holtz-Eakin, now president of the con-
servative American Action Forum. The
House bill 'is an attempt to do this," he
said.
In the current extensions, the first one
voted by Congress in early 2008, some
17.6 million Americans have collected
federal benefits. How much varies from
state to state, but the nationwide average
is about $300 a week.
Republicans say they are willing to ex-
tend the benefits, but also want to cut
back the coverage by 20 weeks.
They argue that even under the full ex-
tension sought by Obama, federal ben-
efits tied to state-by-state levels of un-
employment will likely expire in 20 states
under the current formula as jobless rates
decline. Even under Obama's plan, the
cap would become 79 weeks instead of 99
weeks.
The House formula reducing the cap
"reflects the more normal level typical-
ly available following recessions," said
House Ways and Means Chairman Dave
Camp, R-Mich.
But economists say there is no guaran-
tee that unemployment rates won't rise
once discouraged workers start looking
for jobs again and are officially counted
by the government as rejoining the ranks
of unemployed.
The unemployment rate dropped to 8.6
percent last month after hovering at or
above 9 percent for more than two years.
But part of the decline came because
.many jobless workers became discour-
aged and stopped looking for work and
left the work force.
The government's official count of un-
employed workers is 14 million. But add
to those what the government calls dis-
couraged workers because they have quit
looking for a job or are working only part-
time because they can't find full-time
jobs, and the unemployed and underem-
ployed together total 25 million.

Euro under pressure as EU


summit
The Associated Press

FRANKFURT, German
The euro slid to an 11
month low and borrowing
costs spiked Wednesda
for heavily indebted Italy
as economic realities dis
pulled the last wisps o
optimism left about an El
deal aimed at containing
Europe's debt crisis.
The market verdict -
that Europe's debt prob
lems are still unsolved
comes after five days o
accumulating question
about whether the deal'
new limits on debt ani
added contributions to th
International Monetar
Fund will take full effect.
There's also the recogni
tion that last week's sum
mit deal:
) Doesn't reduce existing
government debt levels;
) Doesn't do much ti
promote the long-tern
growth that would shrin]
those burdens;
) And didn't create ;
financial backstop bil
enough to convince mar
kets that all Europeal
countries will pay their
debts no matter what.
The loss of confidence
comes as experts front
the 17 nations that us,
the euro started rework
ing the summit deal into
a new treaty late Wednes
day in Brussels, which wil
be followed Thursday by
get-together of delegates
a European official saie
speaking on condition c
anonymity because th
talks are confidential.
The euro traded belou
$1.30 for the first, tim
since January 12, hitting
a low of $1.2973. Some c
that is loss of confidence
in the assets of eurozon
nations, but it's also th
result of two quarter-poir
interest rate cuts from th
European Central Bani
The.cuts lower the return:
on euro-denominated
holdings and can induce
investors to move money
elsewhere.
One of the reasons wh
the euro not fallen fur
their against the dollar:thi
year, despite the pressure
heaped on it by the del:
crisis, is that interest rate
in Europe have been s
much higher than those i
the U.S., where the Federa
Reserve has kept its mai
interest rate near zer
percent.
That interest rate dii
ferential has helped offset
the concerns investor
naturally felt as the Euro
pean debt crisis raged:an
threatened to undermine
Europe's banking system
and the currency itself.
At Italy's last bond auc
tion of the year, investor
demanded even mor
money to lend to the eurc
zone's third-largest econe
my. Italy paid 6.47 percer
interest to borrow 3 bil
lion ($3.95 billion) for fiv
years at a bond auctior
up from 6.30 percent just
month ago.
The higher rates reflect
ed investors' fears ove

Israeli PM vows crackdown


on Jewish extremists


The Associated Press

JERUSALEM Isra-
el's prime minister on
Wednesday ordered a
crackdown on Jewish ex-
tremists believed to be
responsible for a wave of
violence and vandalism
against Israeli soldiers and
Muslim mosques.
The move followed the
arrest of suspected .ex-
tremists and an attack on
a disused mosque. .
Benjamin Netanyahu
said in a statement that
he had accepted recom-
mendations made by his
Cabinet ministers to stop
the disturbances.
The measures grant sol-
diers the ability to make
arrests, ban extremists
from contentious areas
and enable rioters to be
tried in military courts.
The prime minister
stopped short of accept-
ing a recommendation
from the ministers to
define the extremists as
"terrorists."
Earlier Wednesday, Is-
raeli police arrested six
suspected Jewish extrem-
ists in a raid on a Jerusa-
lem apartment.
The crackdown came
hours after arsonists
torched a Jerusalem
mosque in an overnight
attack. Police spokes-
man Micky Rosenfeld
said the six suspects were
detained in connection
to "recent events" but
were not believed to be
involved in the latest


mosque attack.
The Israeli government
has vowed to root out
and punish assailants
who in recent months
have vandalized military
bases, mosques, cemeter-
ies, farmlands and cars in
the West Bank and Israel
proper. The attacks are
believed to be the work of
Jewish extremists who are
upset over government
policies that they feel are
unfairly biased in favor of


Palestinians.
Prime Minister Benja-
min Netanyahu has vowed
to "take care of these at-
tackers with a firm hand"
and Defense Minister
Ehud Barak decried the
"homegrown terror."
The frequency of the at-
tacks, the sparse number
of arrests and absence of
indictments have gener-
ated allegations that the
Israeli government isn't
acting forcefully enough.

Steve DeWitt goes over instructions with his players during a
Marianna High School spring football practice this year.


BY DUSTIN KENT

Sources at Marianna High School con-
firmedWednesday that Steve DeWitt has
been removed as head football coach for
the Bulldogs.
Whether DeWitt would remain as
the school's athletic director wasn't yet
known.
DeWitt was named the head coach of
the Bulldogs in 2009, succeeding former
coach Rob Armstrong after spending
several years ps an assistant on the MHS


staff.
SIn his three seasons.with the Bulldogs,
he compiled a record of 12-19.
In his first year as head coach in 2009,
DeWitt finished 4-6, and followed that
with a 3-8 record in 2010.
The Bulldogs were an improved team
in 2011, getting to the .500 mark at 5-5,
but they again failed to make the play-
offs thanks to a heartbreaking 22-21 loss
at Taylor County on Nov. 4.
Neither DeWitt nor MHS principal
Mary Sue Neves could be reached for
comment Wednesday.

PDL


62-45
BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridian.com

The Sneads Pirates
cruised to another district
victory Tuesday night at
home, routing the Ponce
De Leon Pirates 67-43.
With the win, the Pirates
improved to 4-2 in District
3-1A competition, and 5-2
overall. t
Sneads was coming off
of a 66-52 league win over
Vernon on Friday, and with.
Tuesday's win moved with-
in a half game of second
place Graceville (5-2) in
the district standings.
The Pirates won Tues-.
day despite being without
leading scorer John Locke,
who missed the game due
to illness..
But Ponce De Leon was
unable to take advantage,
as Sneads seized control
early in taking a 20-6 first
quarter lead.
It was 36-19 at the half,
and Sneads blew the game
open in the thirdperiod to
take a 26-point advantage
into the final quarter.
Darius Williams had 11
points to lead Sneads, with
Jalon Daniels adding 10,
and Troy Durant and Jer-
emyWert eight each.
Sneads did much of its.
damage from long range,
hitting seven 3-pointers on
the night.
"That's one thing I
thought we did well to-
night," SHS coach Kelvin
Johnson said after the
game.
"We hadn't been hit-
ting very man threes, but
we had five guys hit one
(against PDL) and that
helped open it up in the
paint area. They gave us
some outside shots and we
shot it very well."
SHS will next step out of
district but stay within the
county when it travels to
Malone tonight to take on
the undefeated Tigers in
a game that Johnson said
will tell him a lot about his
team.
"No one else in the coun-
ty has had real good luck
with them, so it's a mea-
suring stick for us to see
how good we are and what
we need to work on," the
coach said.
"They'll bring a lot of
pressure, but that will be
good because we need to
see that with games against
Cottondale and Marianna
coming up."
The coach said he wasn't
sure if Locke would be able
to return by tonight's game,
but said his team's odds of
winning would dramati-
cally increase with the se-
nior in the lineup.
T "We definitely need John
Locke back. He's a big part
of our team," Johnson said.
"We definitely need him
out there if we're going to
compete with Malone."

Cottondale survives

scare from Jackets

COTTONDALE In what could easily be
categorized as their least impressive per-
formance of the season, the Cottondale
Hornets managed to avoid a disappointing
home loss Tuesday night, beating Vernon
46-45.
Hornets point guard Cliff Canty made a
driving layup with five seconds to play to
put Cottondale ahead before a last-second
desperation heave by the Yellowjackets
came up short.
Cottondale moved to 6-0 in District 3-1A
with the win, but the Hornets had to work
harder for this one than they certainly imag-
ined they would.
The Yellowjackets, who were coming off of
a 66-52 road loss to Sneads on Friday night,
led for almost the entire way, going up 26-20
at halftime and stretching the lead to eight
in the third quarter.
Vernon led by six at 43-37 with 3:47 to play,
but the Hornets finished the game on a 9-2
:"un to avoid the upset.
"An ugly win is better than a pretty loss,"
Cottondale coach Chris Obert said after the
game. "We were just getting out-hustled.
They out-played us and but-coached us. We
weren't ready to play, and at the end of day,
that falls on me. I have to do a better job of
getting us ready to play.
"But give credit to Vernon. Coach (Kevin)
Collins had his'guys playing hard..We were
fortunate to come out on top."
The Hornets were sluggish throughout the
first half, turning the ball over and missing
point blank layups on numerous occasions.
Vernon took advantage to seize control,
with Yellowjackets big man JQ Leverette
scoring nine first-half points, several of
which came on offensive rebounds and
put-backs.
Anthony Siples, who scored a game-high
18 points, scored the first points of the sec-
ond half on a driving finish to make it 28-20
with 5:14 on the clock.
A 3-pointer by Prentice Webb and a bas-
ket by Sheldon Vann brought Cottondale to
'within a bucket at 33-31, but Siples scored
again on a driving layup to make it a four-
point Vernon lead going into the fourth.

pointer for the Hornets to bring CHS to

within a point, but Vernon answered with
four straight points when DJ Brown made a
jumper and scored off of a steal to make it
39-34.
Jerrod Blount connected on a triple for
the Hornets to get the margin back to two,
but the 'Jackets came back with four straight
points from Leverette to make it 43-37.
A basket by Blount and a corner three by
Canty following aVernon turnover made it a
one-point game at 43-42 with 1:58 to play.
Blount had a chance to put Cottondale
ahead with two free throws with 47.2 sec-
onds to play, but he missed both.

The Graceville Tigers
suffered their second dis-
trict loss of the season
Tuesday night, falling to
the Wewahitchka Gators
52-50 on the road.
With the loss, the Tigers
fell to 5-2 in District 3-
1A competition and 5-4
overall.
Raheem Wright scored
18 points to lead the Ga-
tors, while Theryl Brown
added 13.
Marquis White had
20 points in the loss for
Graceville, with Rasheed
Campbell adding 12, and
Taylor Rousseau seven.
Wewa led 28-19 at the
half, but the Tigers pulled
to within three in the third
period.
The Tigers took a 50-49
lead with just over a min-
ute to play, but the Ga-
tors went right back on
top when Bryce Gerber
knocked down a 3-pointer


with 50 seconds left.
After the teams ex-
changed empty posses-
sions, Graceville had one
last chance on a 24-foot
shot by Campbell that hit
off the back rim as time
expired.
It was a tough loss for the
Tigers, who were wrapping
up a five games in seven
days stretch that included
four district games, but
GHS coach Matt Ander-
son said he was proud of
his team's effort.

and scored on a drive to put CHS up 44-43.

throws by Siples, the Hornets brought the
ball up the court and called timeout with

helps, opposed


Paul deal to Lakers


Im I". ,,i i ,l l r.,- I _
Chris Paul, was finally traded by New Orleans Wednesday,
following weeks of speculation.


Paul headed



to Hollywood

Point guard traded to the Clippers


TI h ; : ...:: .:it ,J IPr-: .

NEW ORLEANS The
Hornets have agreed in
principle to deal Chris Paul
to the Los Angeles Clippers
for guard Eric Gordon, for-
ward Al-Farouq Aminu,
center Chris Kaman and
a first-round draft choice,
people familiar with 'deal'
said.
Commissioner David
Stern approved the trade
on behalf of the league-
owned team, people told
The Associated Press on
Wednesday on condition
of anonymity because the
NBA had not ratified the
deal.
The 26-year-old Paul is
la four-time All-Star who
averaged 18.7 points and
9.8 assists last season, his
sixth in the NBA. His move
to the Clippers means he'll
now be able to make alley-
oop lobs to a young star
famous for dunking over a
car. That wotdd be forward
Blake Griffin, who aver-
aged 22:5 points and 12.1
rebounds last season, his
first in the NBA.
The Hornets, meanwhile,
get a prolific young shoot-
ing guard in Gordon, who
turns 23 on Christmas Day
and averaged 22.3 points
last season. The 6-foot-9
Aminu is a second-year
pro who averaged 5.6
points and 3.3 rebounds as
a rookie.
The .7-foot Kaman, 29,
is an eight-year veteran
who averaged 12.4 points
and seven rebounds last
season.
E-SPN, citing anonymous
sources, first reported the
trade, which also involves
New Orleans sending two
future second-round draft
picks to the Clippers.
Paul, whom the Hornets
Drafted fourth overall in
2005, told New Orleans
earlier this month that
he was not going to sign
an extension, and Hor-
_nets general manager Dell


Demps has been trying to
trade him since.
Demps came close to
making a deal with the
Los Angeles Lakers last
Thursday which the Lak-
ers would have sent La-
mar Odom to the Hornets.
and Pau Gasol to Houston,
while the Rockets would
have sent Luis Scola, Kevin
Martin and Goran Dragic,
and a first-round draft
choice to New Orleans.
Stern, however' told
Demps to take that deal
off the table because he
thought the Hornets could
get a better deal, both in
terms of personnel: and
salary obligations, in ex-
change for their marquee
player.
,As time passed, the ur-
gency to make a deal ap-
peared to be growing, even
though Demps insisted
earlier Tuesday that the
Hornets had no timeline
and would not be rushed
into a "rash decision."
Still, Demps acknow\l-
edged that it was hard for
the Hornets to pursue free
agents and further build
their roster while Paul's
status was in limbo. If
trade talks had dragged
out much longer, the Hor-
nets could have gone into
Friday night's preseason
opener at Memphis with
little idea of what their ros-
ter would look like in their
first regular season game
at Phoenix on Dec. 26.
Other than Paul, the Hor-
nets had only five return-
ing veterans under con-
tract: center Emeka Okafor,
forward Trevor Ariza, point
guard Jarrett Jack, swing-
man Quincy Pondexter
and shooting guard Marco
Belinelli.
The addition of Gordon,
Aminu? and Kaman give
New Orleans desperately
needed depth while open-
ing the way for the fran-
chise to further strengthen
its roster through free
agency.


The Associated Press

SCHARLOTTE, N.C. -
Michael Jordan didn't ex-
actlyshed anytears when
the proposed trade of
Chris Paul to the Los An-
geles Lakers was nixed.
The Bobcats owner likes
the ideaof competitive
balance in the NBA.
And while Jordan never
expressed his opinion to
NBA Commiissioner Da-
vid Stern on the trade,
he said \Vednesday that
such moves siniply don't
help smaller market
teams.
"As a small market
ownere) I'm \ver sup-
poruve of being able to
keep your star player."
Jordan said in, an after-
noon press conference
prior to Paul being re-
portedly dealt to the
Clippers. "That whole
market is determined
by that one individual.
You want to make it very
difficult for that guy to
leave. Not that he can't
leave, but to understand
the circumstances if he
does leave.
"I can't imagine if I'm
in the Hornets scenario
that I would want Chris
Paul to leave. You want to
keep your star."
That said, Jordanwould
like to land a headline
player someone like
Paul.
"I would definitely go
after a guy like that," Jor-
dan said of the Hornets
star guard. "Obviously we
have tle cap space ne\t
\ear to do so. I would do
everything I can get to try
to get a player like that."
SJordan said he wants
every team in the league
to have a chance to win
the NBA championship
including the Bobcats,


who haven't won a play-
off game since coming
into the league in 2004.
He believes the new col-
lective bargaining agree-
ment is far from perfect
saying "it's not ultimate-
ly where we want to be,"
but believes it's a big step
toward creating parity in
the league something
he fought hard to attain
during negotiations.
Jordan, who as a player
once told then-Washing-
ton Wizards owner Abe
Pollin during the '1998
labornegotiations that if
he couldn't make a profit
he should sell the team,
aggravated some current
players when he took a
hardline stance on rev-
enue sharing during the
lockout.
Jordan's stance
prompted many players
to react negatively with
Washington guard Nick
Young saying on Twit-
ter he wouldn't wear Air
Jordans anymore aid
Golden State.wing Klay
Thompson going as far as
to call him a hypocrite.I
On Wednesday, Jordan
smiled and laughed be-
fore responding to ques-
tions about how some
perceive him as a "hard-
line owner."
He said things aren't
the same as they were in
1998.
"We have gone through
some difficult (financial)
situations and we have
22 teams losing money
- so obviously the mod-
el is not correct," Jordan
said.
"I understood what
some of the players said
in terms of what they
.thought I should be do-
ing. But my dedication
was to the community
and to this team."

"That's one thing I
thought we did well to-
night," SHS coach Kelvin
Johnson said after the
game. "We hadn't been
hitting very man threes,
but we had five guys hit
one (against PDL) and
that helped open ,it up in
the paint area. They gave
us some outside shots
and we shot it very well."
SHS will next step out of

Auburn preparing for life minus Malzahn


The Associated Press

AUBURN, Ala. The Auburn players were in a theater
watching "The Sitter" when they finally got the news
they'd been half-expecting: Offensive coordinator Gus
Malzahn was leaving for a head coaching job.
"We've been hearing it for a while," quarterback Clint
Moseley said Wednesday night, a few hours after Mal-
zahn was introduced at Arkansas State. "We heard it last
year. I'm not going to say we've been preparing for it,
but we've been hearing it enough that you would think
it wouldn't be a shock. But when it actually was con-
firmed, it was a weird feeling. A lot of mixed emotions.
I'm happy for him but at the same time he's the reason
I was here..
"He's done a lot of good things for me personally and a
lot of great things for this program. He's definitely going
to be missed."
The announcement came six days after Central Florida
hired away defensive coordinator Ted Roof for the same
position.
It's not exactly stunning news when assistant coach-
es leave a program after winning a national title. Roof,
however, went to a lower profile program and Malzahn
almost certainly took a sizable cut from his $1.3 million
salary to return to his home state for his first college
head coaching job.
Tigers coach Gene Chizik who is serving as defen-
sive coordinator for the Chick-fil-A Bowl against Virginia
- doesn't sound concerned with his dual vacancies.
"We feel very, very confident moving forward in


what our plan is and where we're headed," Chizik said.
"There's no panic whatsoever on our side. There's coor-
dinators taking jobs in a lot of places. Everybody faces
the same thing."
Malzahn is expected to return Thursday and will call
the offense and work with the quarterbacks through the
Dec. 31 game.
"Gus and I had a great relationship," Chizik said. "He's
going to be missed around here. Him wanting to stay
(through the bowl), I didn't have to beg him. He really,
really wanted to stay. He loves Auburn, and he loves the
players here.
"He was very adamant about wanting to coach in the
bowl game."
Chizik had touted the staff's stability the past two
years, when the only assistant to leave was defensive
line coach Tracy Rocker to the NFL's Tennessee Titans.
Now, he's got to fill the two top positions at a time when
Southeastern Conference rivals Alabama and Florida are
also seeking offensive coordinators.
- Money shouldn't be an issue, considering that Malzahn
was one of college football's highest-paid assistants.
At least two members of Chizik's staff-Malzahn (Van-
derbilt head coach) and offensive line coach Jeff Grimes
(Texas for the same position) turned down offers after
the title season.
"When you're in this profession, you understand
that staff change is something that occurs quite often,"
Chizik said. "The importance of stability in your staff is
big, but the bottom line is when you've won a national
championship and you've had a lot of success, people

are going to have other opportunities.
"This is a situation where I feel very confident that
we're going to hire some great people here, just like
we did previously. Great coaches and great people and
they'll be very good fits here at Auburn."
Malzahn employs a fast-paced, no-huddle offense, but
Chizik said he's not married to a particular style offen-
sively or defensively.
1 "We want guys that have been successful and we want
guys that are very good at what they do and great fits
for Auburn," he said. "I feel very confident we're going to
find the right guys."

Horoscope
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-
Dec. 21) Focus on per-
sonal objectives, because
you'll be lucky with any-
thing that serves your in-
terests over that of others.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.
19) Although something
beneficial for you is stir-
ring, it may momentarily
be screened from view.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
19) In the final analysis
of things, our real wealth
lies in our relationships
with others. You're likely to
be blessed with friends.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March
20) It behooves you to
do what you can to please
others, even if it means go-
ing out of your way.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
- If you keep your attitude
positive and philosophical,
you can guarantee yourself
a good day.
TAURUS (April 20-May
20) There are always fi-
nancial opportunities sur-
rounding you, albeit not
necessarily from previous
sources.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
- Because you're shrewd
yet fair with your counter-
parts when cutting a new
deal, even what needs to
be negotiated on a one-
on-one basis can work out
quite well.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
- Something you have for
sale that is very attractive
to another might be more
valuable than both you
and your prospect know it
to be.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
- Your behavior is likely to
enhance your popularity.
When friends and associ-
ates see the real you, they
can't help but beimpressed
by your warmth and com-
passion for others.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22) If and when you
choose to assert yourself,
an unfinished endeavor
can be concluded to your
satisfaction.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
-This can be an extremely
productive day for you if
you choose to assert your-
self and work on a new
project.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov.
22) You'll be adequately
rewarded for anything you
produce that appeals to
the masses, with a little ex-
tra thrown in.


Annie's Mailbox


Dear Annie: My husband and I separat-
ed 10 years ago when our children were
preteens. He has shown little interest in
them and maintains contact only due to
my encouragement. My family always
includes him when we have family get-
togethers. His family, however, decided
that being nice to us would be taking
sides, so they ignore our existence.
Recently, my husband and his family
had a big reunion less than a block from
us. We have not seen someof these rela-
tives since the separation. They did not
let us know they were coming and made
no contact, even though my mother-in-
law was here for more than a week.
Although my children claim they do
not care, I can see how painful it is that
their grandparents, aunts and uncles
have abandoned them. Every time I try
to communicate with my in-laws, they
subject me to horrible accusations.
SMy kids say I can't fix everything, but
giving up doesn't seem like the answer.
What is?
FEELING HURT AND HELPLESS


Bridge
After partner leads, third hand should inter-
pret the lead and use that information to deter-
mine his future defense as in this deal. What
should East do after West leads a fourth-high-
est heart four against four spades?
South had a good hand for a pre-empt these
days, but it's nice to have one's bid occasionally.
North raised more in hope than expectation, a
vulnerable game bonus being a powerful lure.
East should see that his side needs to take V
four red-suit tricks immediately: three hearts
(if partner led from queen-fourth) and the dia-
mond ace, or two hearts and two diamonds.
East wins the first trick with his king (lower of
touching honors when playing third hand high)
and cashes the heart ace, noting that West fol-
lows with the two. This means that West started
with five hearts and South with only two. Now
East must shift to a LOW diamond. If West has
the king, any play works. But in this deal, de-
clarer must be forced to guess the suit to make
his contract.
I think South rates to go wrong. First, the odds
slightly favor two aces being split between the
defenders, not both in the same hand. And if
West had begun with queen-high diamonds,
he might have led that suit at trick one. With
ace-high diamonds, he never would have.


Dear Hurt: Your children sound wise be-
yond their years, and they are old enough
'now to handle this as they see fit. Ask if
they would like to contact their grand-
parents and other paternal relatives.
Offer phone numbers, email addresses,
Facebook pages, whatever you have. In
all likelihood, these relatives will treat the
children better than they would you, the -
ex-wife, and they may actually recon-
sider a relationship. Still, prepare.your
children for the possibility of rejection.

Dear Annie: I think you may have
overlooked something in your response
to "Frustrated and Angry," who said her
11-year-old daughter stayed at a cousin's
house and the unclb came into her
room at night. It doesn't say in the letter.
whether the cousin is a boy or a girl, and
I'm not sure it matters. The father may be
committing acts of incest with his own
child. The cousin may be afraid to tell
anyone. This is an important reason to
do something about what happened.

"Football is what we do,

"Unfortunately, a lot of

that's life," Tebow said.
So, he's not going to stop
praying 'on the field or
praising God in public even
if some find it offensive.
