Local media tours Chipola Center for the Arts


BY LAUREN DELGADO
Idelgado@jcfloridan.com

Chipola College allowed local media to
tour its still-in-construction Center for
the Arts on Wednesday.
With three main areas: the main theater,
black box theater and a dance studio, this
$16 million, 56,000-square-foot facility is
a landmark for Chipola.
"This is the biggest capital improve-
ment project in the history of Chipola
College," said Chipola President Dr. Gene
Prough said.
No landscaping has been done to the
outside of the theater yet-pipes, red-or-
ange soil and other construction materi-


als currently occupythe center's 350-plus
parking spaces. The building itself has
been painted. Each of the center's towers
is painted either cream, taupe or red.
Media members entered the same way
theatre-goers would, through the front
lobby. A -wall of windows sheds light,
on the ticket booth and main stage en-
tranceways. No flooring or ceiling work
has been put in yet.
An elevator in the lobby and wide walk-
ways make this facility not only comfort-
able and easy to walk through, but also
ADA compliant.
"The beauty here is that there is

While construction is still under way the doors of the Chipola College Center for the, Arts
were opened Wednesday so that members of the local media could be given a tour of the new

Hams earn 2011 Outstanding Farm Family Beauchamps are Hay Farmers of the Year


BY DOUG MAYO
Jackson County Extension Agent

The 2011 Outstanding Farm Family has
now been farming in Jackson County for.
five generations in the Friendship Com-
munity. Over the years, Ed and Becky
Ham have raised corn, cotton, wheat,
oats, sorghum, soybeans, hogs and cattle,
but are best known for their peanuts and'
the Ham Peanut Company they own..
The head of this year's farm family, Ed
SHam got his start in agriculture growing
up on the family farm. In 1968, just out of
high school, he started working full time
for the Pender Peanut Company where he
was an employee for 14 years. Just to put
1968 in perspective, in that year a ton of
ammonium nitrate fertilizer sold for $33/
ton and a ton of peanuts were worth $250
per ton.
Ham served as the general manager of


Several local crop and livestock produc-
ers will be recognized this Friday morning
at Farm City Day, one of the most im-
portant and highly-anticipated monthly
'power breakfast' sessions put on by the
Jackson County Chamber of Commerce
each year. The event is slated for 7 a.m. at
the Jackson County Agriculture Complex
on Penn Avenue in Marianna.
The honorees are featured in stories on
this page and on pages 4&5A of today s
Floridan. Jackson County E tension Di-
rector Doug Mayo provided the majority
of the text. except where otherwise noted
in story bylines.

ness was sold in 1982. That same year

Hay Farmers of the Year Jim and Lynn.
Beauchamp are fourth-generation farm-
ers, and the fifth-generation is already
at work on their Century Pioneer Farm
Family spread.
Their three sons Jamie, Brian and
Tyler live on the farm as well. Jamie
and Brian help out on the farm when
they aren't busy on their off-farm jobs,
and Tyler provides much encourage-
ment and help as well.
The potential,sixth generation is still
pre-teenage, but the Beauchamps have
every hope that their grandchildren will
carry on the farm operation,and pass it
along to their own children someday.
Granddaughter Baylee Beauchamp,
Jamie's daughter, is 9 years old, and al-
ready showing signs of interest.


The Beauchamp place in the Alliance
Community was designated a Century
farm in 2006, because the land has been
in the Beauchamp family for at least 100
years.
Jim's great-grandfather E.W. Beau-
champ established the farm in 1898. He
was a row cropper, and his descendants
have continued that tradition. The fam-
ily has 375 acres in hay and another 325
acres in wheat, cotton, peanuts, corn
and soybeans.
Lynn Beauchamp said the family is
honored to have been selected for the
award.
"We have a lot of wonderful farm fami-
lies in Jackson County and we're proud
to be among them," she said. "It's a spe-
cial honor to be given the award, but it's
just as special an honor to be part of the

Cain seeks support of key Florida constituencies


The Associated Press

WEST PALM BEACH Repub-
lican presidential candidate Her-
man Cain said on a campaign
stop in Florida on Wednesday
that Republicans took back con-
trol of the House in 2008 -when
that really happened in 2010.
"When the American people
begin to ignite that American
spirit they make things happen,
just like they made things hap-


pen in 2008 when the Repub-
licans took back control of the
House," he said'at a rally at the
Palm Beach County Convention
Center.
The year 2008 actually was a
banner year for Democrats, put-
ting Barack Obama in the White
House as his party gained seats
in both House and Senate.
The misstep came two days af-
ter a much-replayed fumbling to
a question dn Libya that has had


some questioning his fitness to
deal with international affairs.
"I get criticized,'Well he doesn't
have extensive foreign policy ex-
perience,'" he said. "And the guy
there now does?" he said, refer-
ring to Obama.
Cain was reaching out to South
Florida's influential Cuban-
American and Jewish communi-
ties during the stops.
* Cain said he believed an attack
on Israel by Iranian President


Mahmoud Ahmadinejad would
be considered an attack on the-
U.S., echoing comments ear-
lier in the day seeking the sup-
port of Florida's sizable Jewish
community.
At an afternoon appearance in
the Fort Lauderdale suburb of
.Coral Springs, Cain rallied sup-
porters at a chicken wing restau-
rant and again stressed support
for Israel.
He also raised questions about


whether the U.S. can truly count
on longtime ally Pakistan, noting
that al-Qaida leader Osama bin
Laden was able to hide out there
until he was killed by U.S. com-
mandos earlier this year.
"Let's clarify who our enemies
are and stop giving money to our
enemies," Cain said. "We've got
to clarify whether Pakistan is a
friend. I'm not sure."

raiser at Beef 'O'Brady's in
Marianna on Sunday, Nov.

Proceeds from the event

is suffering from a child-
hood disease. For the past
five years, the OCJC has
been helping local fami-
lies offset medical expens-
es incurred due to their
child's illness. All funds
collected go to the medical
expenses.
"It has been a great joy in
dealing with these families


over the years.
"They have all been so
appreciative of what we
have been able to help
them with during these
difficult times," said Shellie
Hollis, event chairperson.
This year the club is opt-
ing for different fundrais-
ers instead of the May
Poker Run from previous
years.
Join the OCJC for dinner
on Sunday, Nov. 20 from
4-9 p.m. at Beef 'O'Brady's
and tell your server that
you would like for some of

Special to the Floridan

Troop 3 Boy Scouts en-
joyed their weekly meeting
at the Scout Hut on Nov. 7,
when they discussed and
worked on several differ-
ent projects. The recently
held yard sale fund raiser
was deemed a huge suc-
cess, with approximately
$600 raised to help with
improvements to Camp
AlaFlo and to purchase
needed scout supplies.
The items that weren't sold'
were donated to the local
Chipola Family Ministries.
Scouts practiced us-
ing their aluminum can
"stoves" that they made at
last week's meeting. Scout
leaders and older patrol
leaders helped with pour-
ing the alcohol into each
can and lighting them with
matches. Most of the stoves
started burning right away,
though it was determined
that a few of them will need
some minor adjustments
before using them at the
upcoming camp out.

Satsuma farmer Glass is Innovator of the Year


BY DOUG MAYO
Jackson County Extension Agent

Satsuma farmer Mack Glass
makes history this year as the
first person to receive a new
Farm City Day award, Innovator
of the Year.
It was established by the Uni-
versity of Florida/IFAS North-
west Florida Agriculture Exten-
sion Team and Farm Credit of
Northwest Florida. It is meant
to recognize farmers in the Pan-
handle of Florida who have been
creative with their business and
also willing to share their ideas
with others.
Each County Extension Ser-
vice nominated a candidate,
with one Innovator of the Year
selected from the entire region
as the Farm Credit of Northwest
Florida Agricultural Innovator
of the Year. The intent is to an-
nually recognize farmers in the
region who have created or em-
braced new ideas in their own
operations and shared what they
have learned with the agricul-
tural community.
Glass is well known in Jackson
County as an outstanding cattle,
timber and land manager. In
1999, while attending a state-
wide IFAS summit on agricul-
ture, he got an idea for an alter-
native crop and with new market
possibilities. -


Dr. Wayne Sherman, retired
IFAS citrus breeder, was at his
table and he told Mack, "IfI lived
in the panhandle I would grow
Satsumas."
That luncheon conversation
brought about the revitalization
of the citrus industry in the pan-
handle. Although he can't take
'credit for the idea, Glass is the
one who put the effort and in-
vestment to make the concept a
reality.
After numerous conversations
with IFAS faculty and associates
in the Central Florida Citrus in-
dustry about cold protection
and production techniques, he
start his citrus operation. He also
shared his knowledge with sev-
eral close associates who formed
the Cherokee Citrus brand.
The group placed their order
for Satsuma'trees from a certi-
fied nursery and planted their
first trees in March of 2002. As
the trees grew and developed,
Glass began developing a mar-
keting plan for this unique prod-
uct. Early on, when the trees
were still immature, he began
working with schools and local
civic groups to build a network
of fundraiser sales for his pre-
mium quality fruit. These first
sales helped fuel local interest,
aiding the group in developing
a local direct-purchase market.
Mack was one of the first pro-

.ducers in Jackson County to
become GAP (good agricultural
practice) trained in food safety,
which allowed him to sell direct-
ly to retailers in the region. This
year he is adding a GAP Certified
produce packing facility that will
allow him and other growers
to market their farm fresh pro-
duce directly to retail outlets and
school districts in the region.


Glass and a few other grow-
ers are currently in the process
of harvesting Satsuma oranges.
This year he added his own pro-
cessing plant. USDA has a new
requirement that all fresh citrus
must be disinfected and waxed
for increased food safety, shelf
life and disease prevention. Lo-
cal growers have adapted to new
regulations and retail require-


ments for fresh produce food
safety.
Glass is commended and rec-
ognized for taking this proactive
added-value approach to help
meet the ever increasing food
safety concerns for the fresh fruit
they sell.
,The Agricultural Innovator is
selected each year by the Jack-
son County Extension Service.


Ford named Corn Farmer of the Year for eighth straight year


BY DOUG MAYO AND
DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbuckhalter@jcfloridan.com

For the eighth consecutive
year, Larry Ford has been named
Jackson County's corn farmer of
the year. His 2011 annual yield of
258 bushels an acre is a personal
record for the longtime Malone-
area farmer; his previous high
was 245 bushels an acre. .
Ford faced a tragic personal
challenge this year; his wife Vi'v-
ian was stabbed to death by an
intruder .at their home late in
2010. The Fords had been high-
school swee hearts arid thelitwo
had forged the kind of relationi-
ship many in the': omiriunity'
considered the ideal pairing. She


"Ijust try to do the bestlcan,
*doingeverythngin a timely
manner, andIthink that
helps me in any successIdo
have."
Larry Ford,
2011 Corn Farmer of the Year
was part and parcel of the farm-
ing operation, and Ford said he's
sure he'll feel her spirit by his
side even thoughhe must accept
the award on his own this year.
Ford said he found some com-
fort in his work after the tragedy,
pouring his energy into the op-
eration as he fought to focus and
function in the aftermath of the
loss.


"All I can says that the Lord has
blessed us richly with the prayers
of people in the community. It
helped maintain my focus. It's
difficult, but through prayer and
staying busy and occupied, all
that enters into getting through
it. I'm sure I will feel her pres-
ence I've felt it every place I've
been this year, at the Florida Pea-
nut Producers annual meeting
and elsewhere. I asked the Lord
to help me through it, and he
has. People's support has really
Helped, and I thank the Lord I'm
able to move on and just try to
continue to be focused. I contin-
ue to function as I always func-
tion, and this award definitely
means a lot to me. I just try to do
the best I can, doing everything


in a timely manner, and I think
that helps me in any success I do
have. Good management of the'
harvest, the fertilizing, the irriga-
tion, all the things that go into it
is a crucial thing."
He planted Pioneer P2088 this
year to reach his highest yield
ever. In addition to corn, Ford
raises some cattle and farms
nearly 3,600 more acres in other
row crops. He irrigated most of
the corn- all but 25 acres. Ford
plans to farm between 150-200
acres of corn in the coming year.
He had reduced his corn acreage
this year in order to add more
cotton in response to a price
hike for cotton producers.:
His corn crop saw 25 inches of
irrigation with almost no rain-


fall, yet this was his best yield
ever. When asked why in such a
dry year he got such high yields
he said "in a dry year you don't
lose fertility, plus the. dry heat
reduced insect and disease pres-
sure. Conditions this year were
similar to what you normally see
in West Texas orArizona." Ford is
quick to point out, however, that
record yields do not 'translate
into record profits due to higher
input and irrigation costs. Even
so, this new record corn yield is
a testament to Larry's dedication
to farm management even with
very challenging weather.
The Corn Farmer of the Year
Award is based on standardized
yield checks provided by the
Jackson County Extension Staff.

Adams is Cotton


Farmer of the Year


BY DOUG MAYO'
Jackson County Extension Agent

Melvin Adams and his
son Jason operate Adams
Farms which is a diversi-
fied cattle, peanut and
cotton farm. Melvin has
been farming for 37 years,
which he says is "Long
enough to retire, but I
can't get farming out of my
blood." Melvin's son Jason
is the fourth generation of
Adams that has,farmed in
the Graceville area.
To improve the efficien-
cy of their cotton opera-
tion, the Melvin made the
decision to plant cotton
.on a narrow, 30-inch row
spacing to get more plants
per acre and increase their
total production. In addi-
tion, they harvest with a
cotton stripper which re-
duces harvest waste and
is adaptable to narrower
row spacings.- Melvin is
known to do'a good job


year after year with his
cotton farming. When
asked about this year's
crop he said, "The Good
Lord sent timely rains and
good weather. for harvest,
so what looked it what
was going to be a terrible
year turned out better
than expected."
Family is very important
to Melvin and his wife,
Carol. They have three
grown children: their
sons, Jason and Rod, and
a daughter, Mandy. Jason
and his wife Angela have
a daughter, Kinsey Brook.
Rod and his wife Mary
have two children, Neal
and Breanna. His daugh-
ter Mandy and her hus-
band Clint Williams, have
a daughter, Haley Grace.
The Cotton Farmer of
the Year is selected each
year by the Jackson Coun-
ty Extension Staff with
the assistance of the local
Cotton Gins.

Jordan brothers of 3J Farms


are Peanut Farmers ofthe Year


BY DOUG MAYO
Jackson County Extension Agent

This year's Peanut Farmers of the Year
are a trio of brothers.. Mike, Steve and
SJohn Jordan. They have been farming full
time together under the name 3J Farms
since 2005., Mike has been farming full
time since 1986.
At least three generations of Jordens
have farmed in the Malone/Bascomb
area. 3J Farms is a 3,200-acre row crop
farmn specializing in cotton, peanuts and
cucumbers forVlasic Pickles.
The Jordans'grew almost 500 acres of
peanuts this year. All but 31 acres were
under irrigation.' Over the next several
years they hope to switch their irrigation
systems from diesel to electric power to
improve their efficiency. Net yields for
the different fields ranged from just over
4,000 pounds per acre on a small non-ir-
rigated field to their best field, 32 acres


of the Georgia Greener variety that had a
net yield of 6,797 per acre. Their irrigated
peanuts, the majority of their crop,'had a
total net yield this year of just over three
tons per acre.
Mike describes their production this
.year as their best and worst year ever.
The irrigated acres had the highest yields
they ever received for both peanuts and
cotton, but their dryland, or non-irrigat-
ed were some of their lowest yields ever.
Because of the dry heat, the only disease
pressure was some white mold, but qther
insect or disease losses were very limited.
The Jordans feel very fortunate, because
the combination of high yields and high
crop prices will make this a good year
for their business, in spite of the difficult
weather year.
The Peanut Farmer of the Year is select-
ed each year bythe Jackson County Ex-
tension Service with the assistance from
the Florida Peanut Producers.

trees, removing dead trees, providing fire
breaks at certain intervals, and harvesting
the trees.
Mr. Pete operates the farm under the
Florida Forest Stewardship Program. He
and his wife are graduates of the Master
Tree Farmer Program. He believes that
pine tree farming allows him to keep and
operate the land in a profitable manner

Standing on the main

of their Bermudagrass
and perennial peanut hay
in the Southeastern Hay
Contest held at the Sunbelt
Expo. The samples were
analyzed for quality by the
:University of Georgia's For-

peanut hay entry had 13
percent protein, 60 per-
cent TDN, and a Relative
Forage Quality (RFQ) in-
dex of 131. An RFQ index
of 100 is equal to mature,
or low quality alfalfa hay.
RFQ is a single number in-

Barrel racing betting
set to open
GRETNA In what
might be an event that's
entirely unique to a small,
rural Florida Panhandle
town, operators are plan-
ning to open a facility that
will allow gamblers to bet
on barrel racing if op-
ponents don't win a
challenge of the permit.
Creek Entertainment
Gretna plans to begin
live racing Dec. 1 under a
pari-mutuel permit issued
for quarter horse racing.
The Florida Quarter Horse
Racing Association, how-
ever, is asking the state to
void the permit, saying it
wasn't intended for barrel
racing.
But James Dorris,
president of PCI Gaming
Authority, says the horses
that will be part of the
barrel racing are quarter
horses, and he contends
the operation is allowed
under Florida law. The
Department of Business
and Professional Regula-
tion is reviewing a petition
challenging the plans.

Fla. prohibits taking
of 4 species of sharks
KEY LARGO --Taking
tiger sharks and three spe-
cies of hammerheads will
be prohibited in Florida
waters effective Jan. 1
to protect them from
overfishing.
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission approved
the ban Wednesday in
Key Largo. It covers great,
scalloped and smooth
hammerhead sharks as/
well as tigers.
The panel also prohib-
ited the possession, sale
and exchange of those
sharks harvested from
state waters: They can still
be caught and released in
Florida waters and taken,
in federal waters. State
waters extend three miles
into the Atlantic Ocean
and 10 miles in to the Gulf
of Mexico.
Florida already has
similar restrictions for
several other overfished or
rare shark species.

. Haridopolos open to
delaying budget
TALLAHASSEE -- State
Senate President Mike Ha-
ridopolos says he's open
to start working on the,
budget for the upcoming
fiscal year after lawmak-
ers have finished work on
redistricting.
SHaridopolos says waiting
for a revenue estimate
later in the springcould
result in more money be-
ing available for lawmak-
ers who have been dealing
with decreasing tax dollars
coming into the Florida
treasury in recent years.
They're presently looking
at another shortfall for the
2012-13 budget.
Haridopolos told The
Associated Press on
Wednesday that he hasn't
spoken with House
Speaker Dean Cannon
or Gov. Rick Scott about
delaying the budget talks.

More cats than
inmates at prison
BELLE GLADE-Au-
thorities say dozens of cats
that snuck into a Florida
prison will be found new
homes before the facility
closes next month.
As many as 80 cats have
burrowed under fences
and taken up residence
at the state-run prison
in Belle Glade. Prisoners
have been feeding the ani-
mals, even-though rules


prohibit that.
The 1,000-inmate prison
closes Dec. 1. Officials tell
The Palm Beach Post that
as of Monday, there are
more cats than prison-
ers at the facility. Just 69
inmates remain awaiting
transfers.
Palm Beach County
animal control officers are
removing the cats so they
won't starve when the pris-
on closes. They're offering
to waive adoption fees to
find them new homes.

Judge involved in courthouse construction resigns


The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE A Florida
state appellate judge is resigning
rather than face ethics charges
stemming largely from his lead
role in the construction of an
opulent $48.8 million courthouse
that critics have derided as a
"Taj Mahal."
First District Court of Appeal
Judge Paul Hawkes, a former
Republican lawmaker and leg-
islative staffer, submitted a let-
ter of resignation dated Nov. 9 to
Gov. Rick Scott, who will appoint


a replacement.
The letter that became public on
Wednesday says Hawkes' resigna-
tion is effective Jan. 4. That's near-
ly four weeks before he had been
scheduled for a hearing before an
investigative panel of the Judicial
Qualifications Commission.
One of the Tallahassee court-
house project's leading critics,
state Sen. Mike Fasano, said the
resignation was overdue.
"I had called for his resigna-
tion a long time ago shortly after
it surfaced --his spending habits
in the building of the Taj Mlahal,"


said the chairman of a Senate
budget subcommittee that over-
sees judicial spending.
The massive building is replete
with stately columns inside and
out, an ornate dome, granite
desk and counter tops, miles of
mahogany trim and etched glass
windows. It also has individual
bathrooms and kitchens for each
of the 15 judges.
"It is important that we in the
legislative body ... understand
what happened, why it hap-
pened, make certain it never hap-
pens again," said Fasano, R-New

with a largely new group of

Bullpups


win 2 over


county foe

BY SHELIA MADER
Floridan Correspondent

The Marianna Middle School
Bullpups basketball teams picked
up another pair of wins Tuesday
evening against county foe Cot-
tondale at the MMS gym.
The 'A' team won handily at 54-
35, while the 'B' team picked up a
lopsided 44-20 victory. The 'A team
was coming off a 50'-42 loss against
a talented and explosive Craver
Middle School team last Thursday
In Tuesday's matchup, the
Bullpup A' team took an early 20-
8 lead in the first period and never
looked back. Dre Perry accounted
for seven points while Aaron Wil-
liams added six. Right on their
heels was Herman Williams with a
bucket and a 3-pointer.
In the second quarter, Marianna
added"10 points and Cottondale
countered with eight, .giving the
Bullpups a 30-16 half time lead.
Marianna poured in 16 third-
quarter points while holding Cot-
tondale to nine to put the game
away.
On the night, Marianna was led
in double digits by Perry with 15,
followed by Herman Williams with
11 and Tre Clemons with 10.
For Cottondale, Chris Hall was
the leading scorer with 13 points,
followed by Kadeem Webb with
11.
In 'B' team -action it was a 13-
point first quarter drive that jump-
started Marianna to their win.
Cottondale answered with 10 but
couldn't manage to get any closer
through the next three quarters. At'
the half, it was a 27-12 game. Mari-
anna was led in scoring by An-
ton Williams and Jabari Kirkland
with 10 points' each. Tyler White
checked in with eight points.
For Cottondale, Vonti Hall and
Tyric Brown both picked up six
points.


there is little else in the
way of experience for the
Pirates coming back.
Jalon Daniels, Joseph
Mantecon, Sherron Mc-
Millan and Troy Durant
all got sparse time, but
Locke is the only returning
Sneads player who logged
heavy varsity minutes last
season.
However, that hasn't af-
fected the Sneads, coach's
optimism and outlook for
this year's squad.
"I really like this year's
.team. I think we can be
very good, and I think it
could be one of the best


I've had in the last two or
three years," Johnson said.
"We'll be a lot faster than
we were last year. We play
hard defense, and we've
got a few skilled players.
By the end of the season,
this team could be very
good."
Sneads will be bolstered
by the return of point
guard Aaron Green, who
was a standout on the Pi-
rates' junior varsity as a
sophomore before hurting
his knee and missing all of
last season.

Lady Bulldogs struggle




in loss to South Walton


BY SHELIA MADER
Floridan Correspondent

The Marianna High School Lady
Bulldogs soccer team suffered an 8-
0 shutout to South Walton Tuesday
night on the road less than a day
after playing to a 2-2 tie against Wal-
ton. The loss drops the Lady Dogs to
0-2-1 on the season.
The game was played through
intermittent rain and against a
very experienced Lady Seahawks
team.
Defender Ashley Griffin and keep-
er Mallory Dean had their hands full
throughout the night trying to keep
the ball out of the net.


Marianna had little opportunity
for shots on goal, but Ariana Domen
and Emily Fuqua both managed
attempts but were held at bay by a
talented defense.
Domen and Fuqua both scored
goals on Monday on their home field
in a much friendlier confine than
.they faced on Tuesday evening.
On the night, Dean had 34 at-
tempts, eight goals scored, 15 saves
and 11 missed shots.
Following the game, coach David
Castleberry, obviouslydisappointed,
found positives in his team's perfor-
mance. "They had their hands full
no doubt and they got a little frus-
trated, but they never gave up. Our


forwards continued to move the ball
and attempted to notch a goal. We-
just fell a little short. We've got some
athletes and some competitors who
aren't going to go down without a
struggle.
"They kept their heads in the game
until it was over and I'm proud of
them for that."
Marianna had little time to regroup
as they were scheduled to travel to
Franklin County this evening with a
4 p.m. kickoff:
"We will hit the practice field to-
morrow and get ready for Franklin
County," Castleberry said.
Scores for that match-up were not
available as of press time

"His return will really lift
us up and help us out a
lot," the coach said. "He's
a very solid basketball
player. He'll be our starting
point guard."
The Pirates will also.get'
a boost from some rising
JV players in wing player
Devin Hayes and a"pair of
post players in sophomore
Darius Williams and fresh-
man JeremyWert.
"We had a lot of JV kids
with us over the summer
who did real well," John-
son said. "Devin' and Dari-
us both got alot better over
the summer and will help
us out quite a bit. Jeremy
is 6-3 or 6-4 and can really

Durant will also contrib-
ute physicality and de-

take on a larger offensive
role as well.
But it will stilfbe Locke
who will be asked to -lead
the Pirates' offense.
"John's got the most ex-
perience of anybody and
he's probably the best de-
fensive player we've got.

and we'll be leaning on
him to score some points
for us," Johnson said.

playoffs.
"Bonifay will be without
some of their football play-
ers, but Walker will still be
there and he's amazing,

interesting to see. Hon-
estly, I'm as excited about

about seeing us."

some, too.
"He can elevate, has good
moves, and can score down
there. We've got some other
guys like Aaron Green and
Jalon Daniels and Devin
Hayes who can handle the
ball."
SHowever, Johnson said
that 'with so many new
pieces, there is still a lot
for him to work out with
his team's personnel and
substitution patterns.
"The first few games will
be a lot of trial and error,"
he said. "We'll experiment
with a few things and see
what kind of ball we re-
ally want to play. We'll try
to speed it up, but if that
doesn't work,' we'll try
something else. Right now,
we've got 10 guys that we
can run in and out of the
game and we've got some
speed on our side, which
we haven't had a lot of in
the last couple of years."
The Pirates were perhaps
a more skilled team overall
last season with the likes
of Rogers and Hall giving
them more of perimeter
shooting presence, but
Johnson said this team
may be better .suited for
a run at the playoffs due
to its strength at the other
end of the court.
"We may lack a little bit
of scoring this year, but I
think we'll make up for it
.on defense," he said. "Last
year's team was pretty
good offensively and weak
defensively. It's sort of the
opposite this year. We have

of Marianna's District 1-

The coach said that both

defense comes first and

SThe Pirates will also be in
a new district this 'season
thanks to the reclassifica-
tion to separate the "rural"
and "urban" teams, with
talented teams like Blount-
stown, Bozeman and Hol-
mes County now no longer
in the same league as SHS.
"It opens it up a little bit
more," the Pirates coach
said. "Last year, we had six
really good teams in the
district. This year, there are

not as many teams on that

got Cottondale and Gracev-
ille, so any time you've got
them in district, you can
expect that you'll have to'
play hard and play well to
win because they're going
to have good teams."
Johnson said he believes
that this group can make a
run at winning the school's
first district title since
2008; but there is a lot to
be determined between
now and then."
"I hope so. I think so, but
it's according to how hard
we work and how much
better we get," he said. "I
think by the end of the sea-
son we can be very good
and cause some problems
for people with how we
compete."

Jaguars TE Lewis hoping to turn season around


The Associated Press

JACKSONVILLE Jack-
sonville Jaguars tight end
Marcedes Lewis knows he
has struggled this season.
He doesn't need anyone to
point it out, either.
Lewis remembers ev-
ery dropped pass, every
missed assignment and
.every wrong route. That's
because the Pro Bowl tight
end is his harshest critic.
He understands the
whispers and occasional
boos.
He's hopes to silence
them, too, beginning this
week at Cleveland.
"I put pressure on'my-
self to make the great
play," Lewis said. "When.
it comes down to it, that's
how I feel. It's just a matter
of time that I start making
them plays regardless if
defenders are in the way,
regardless if they're get-
ting their arm in there. I'm
going to break their arm
off and hold onto the ball,
period."
A Year after setting career
marks with 58 catches for
700 yards and 10 touch-
downs, Lewis has 16 recep-
tions for 170 yards and no
scores. The most memora-
ble aspect of his season has
been several balls thrown
in his direction landing on
the ground. Some of those
have been ripped from his
hands, others have si4,ply
been dropped.
It's not what anyone ex-
pected after Lewis signed
a five-year, $35 million
contract that included $17
million guaranteed during
training camp.
The Jaguars (3-6) had
hoped Lewis would be a
safety blanket for rookie
Blaine Gabbert, a 6-foot-
6 target the developing
quarterback could rely on
under pressure. But their
chemistry has been slow
to develop, partly because


Jacksonville used Lewis
mainly as an extra blocker
early in the season because
of offensive line issues.
And even when Lewis
did get out on routes, he
found extra attention as
the team's top threat in the
passing game.
"I take it as respect,"
Lewis said. "Obviously,
guys are paying more at-
tention to me. I think it's
cool.... It shouldn't change
anything, though. I be-
lieve in what we're doing.
*We're going to start com-
.ing down with those plays.
There's a lot of season left.
Every day, Blaine and I are
getting on the same page.
Pretty soon, it's going to be
nice."
Lewis hasn't caught more
than four passes in any
game this season. Even
though it has been frustrat-
ing, Lewis hasn't pointed
fingers, sulked or showed
any discontent.
"You do get frustrated,
but he does a great job not
showing it," running back
Maurice Jones-Drew said.
"He continues to work
hard. The passing game is
dictated off the coverage.
you get and who's open. At
the end of the day, if they
make sure he's not open,
he's not going to get the
ball. It's a simple as that."
Jones-Drew said oppos-
ing defenses are brack-
eting Lewis and forcing
Jacksonville's receivers a
group that includes Mike
Thomas and' castoffs Ja-
son Hill, Chastin West and
Brian Robiskie beat
them elsewhere.
"A lot of people set their
fronts to (Lewis) and then
put a safety and a line-
backer on him, and then
the defensive end's chip-
ping him when he goes
out," Jones-Drew said.
"That's what happens
when you come off a year
where you're probably the

Horoscope
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov.

of yours are both engag-
ing in something on your
behalf today in hopes of
being able to acquire what
you've been craving.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
19) There is a strong
chance you will acquire
a new friend who will be-
come a lifelong pal.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March
20) A project you're
able to complete today is
likely to give you a sense of
accomplishment.
ARIES (March 21-April
19) It will become quite
clear to you today that you
are much more popular
with your contemporaries
than you ever thought,

Annie's Mailbox


SDear Annie: A few years ago, my daugh-
ter was newly married and pregnant.
Neither she nor her husband had' a job,
so both sets of parents took them in at
,various times and helped wheri the baby
was born.
My son-in-law went back to school
and got a job, and they finally moved
into a small house of their own. When
my daughter decided to go to nursing
school, we were delighted. Again, both
sets of parents pitched in and took care
of the baby. I also fed her family every
day so they wouldn't have to spend
money they didn't have. When she be-
came pregnant again, we stepped back
up to the plate and took care of their little
newborn girl. '
My daughter now is an RN and makes.
great money. Her husband does decently,
and they have a lot to be thankful for.
When my daughter asked me to continue
babysitting, I agreed, but only if I was
paid.
This really upset her, and she now
won't let me see the kids. Her sister-in-


Bridge

When a defender, always count the points
in the dummy to see if it approximates what
you were expecting after the auction and use
its contents to influence your defense. In this
example deal, you are sitting East. Your partner
leads the spade three against three no-trump.
What would you do? W
North, with a great suit, spade help and no
singleton or void, was right to rebid three no-
trump. Do not play in five of a minor unless you
are convinced three no-trump has no chance.
West led the correct spade. Giving length in-
formation is more important than strength in-
formation in partner's unsupported suit.
How did you defend? The bidding tells you
that South has the spade king. Yes, if you cover
dummy's 10 with your jack, you establish your
suit but what will happen next? South will
take at least nine tricks: one spade, two hearts
and six clubs. To defeat the contract, your side
must win the first five tricks. Take the first trick
and shift to the diamond two. Partner should
win as cheaply as possible and return his dia-
mond three to your ace. Then your next dia-
mond lead gives your side five tricks: one spade
and four diamonds. Lucky, yes; but winners are
lucky.


law looksafter them for free, but only for
a few hours a day. My daughter works
nights and doesn't get enough sleep in
the daytime because she must attend to
her children.
So Annie, do you think I am being self-
ish for wanting to be paid $400 a month
for child care along with breakfast, lunch
and dinner?
SAD GRANDMA IN MISSOURI

Dear Grandma: This isn't about fairness,
because you are certainly entitled to
be paid for your services. But you have
changed the dynamic between you and
your daughter. You've turned babysit-
ting the grandchildren into a business
transaction.
Not only was your daughter caught
off-guard, but she obviously resents
it. If you need the money, talk to your
daughter about what she thinks would
be appropriate, and see if you can work
this out. If you don't need the money, we
suggest you babysit when you are willing,
without charge.

Recall: Glider Recliners with
Ottomans sold at Big Lots
The Florida Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services, the U.S. Consumer Prod-
uct Safety Commission (CPSC), and Big Lots,
of Columbus; Ohio, have announced the recall
of about 375,000 Microfiber Glider Recliners
with Ottomans and Leather Glider Recliners
with Ottomans. An exposed gap between the
moving parts of the chair and the base frame-
work can allow access to toddlers and in-
fants, posing an entrapment hazard. In.addi-
tion, other exposed moving parts on the chair
and the ottoman can pose finger pinching
and crushing hazards to older children and
adults.
dPSC received two reports of children under
age two who were found trapped at the neck
between horizontal components of the frame
at the back of the chair. In both incidents,
adults were able to release the children who
suffered no permanent injuries.
The Microfiber Glider Recliner and Leather
Glider Recliner.are reclining glider/rocking
chairs on a swivel base. Both the chair and ot-
toman sit on circular metal bases made from
1.25 inch metal tubing and have cushions cov-
ered in either light brown or green microfiber
fabric or dark brown simulated leather fabric.
A label under the seat of the chair identifies
the manufacturer as Dongguan ShindinMetal
& Plastic Products Ltd. There is a small label
on the front metal rod under the seat that,
states "Maximum wt load 250 Ibs."
The recalled chairs were manufactured in Chi-
na and sold at Big Lots stores nationwide
from January 2005 through December 2009
for about $170.
Consumers should immediately stop using
the chairs and contact Big Lots for a free re-'
pair kit that covers the base framework and
the moving parts of the chair and ottoman.
Call (866) 244-5687 between 9 a.m. and 5
p.m. ET Monday through Friday or visit the
firm's website at www.biglots.com

Shannon spea


out


The Associated Press
CORAL GABLES Nearly a year ago, everything
changed for Miami coach Randy Shannon. He was fired
by his alma mater, his hometown school, the place he
had been for virtually every bit of his adult life.
Time has healed most of that wound.
In an interviewWednesday with The Associated Press,
Shannon discussed his past, his future, how the Hurri-
canes look under new coach Al Golden and the in-
vestigation into claims made by former Miami booster
Nevin Shapiro, allegations that have already rocked the
athletic department and could impact the football team
for years.
He's ready to move on to the next challenge, and now
just waits for someone to bring the invitation his way.
"I needed this year to sit out," said Shannon, who was
fired last Nov. 27. "I needed to learn.something new. And
I think I've done that."
Shannon has been spending time at Alabama, TCU,
North Carolina, UNLV, Oregon, Iowa State and Min-
nesota, packing up for a week at a time to embed with
those programs and soak up knowledge.
The visits had nothing to do with football he re-
fused invitations to sit down in X's and O's meetings
- but rather were about learning how the organizations
worked, from security to scheduling and anything in
between.
The way Shannon sees it, he knows plenty about foot-
ball at this point in his life. After really only knowing the
Miami way he played there, was an assistant there, a
coordinator there and then head coach of operating
the off-the-field sides of a program, he wanted to pick
and choose from,an array of schools to develop a better
plan should the chance to coach come his way again.
"I spent my money and went to college," he said. "I
met with the strength coaches, the policemen who are,
around some teams, compliance people, athletic direc-
tors, support staff. It wasn't just football. It was very little
football. I needed to see other things, see a lot of ways to
do different things, and it made me a whole lot better."
Shannon was fired after Miami lost to South Florida in
last year's regular-season finale the teams play again
Saturday in Tampa. Before the 2010,game in.Miami, a
small plane circled the stadium before kickoff displaying
a banner that urged school officials to make the change.
Hours after that loss, Shannon was gone with a 28-20 re-
cord in four seasons.
And with that, one change followed another at Mi-
ami. Athletic director Kirby Hocutt, who fired Shannon,
hired Al Golden to take his place. Then Hocitt left to ac-
cept a job at Texas Tech, despite insisting he would not'
leave the Hurricanes just a couple weeks earlier. Shawn
Eichorstwas eventually hired to replace Hocutt as AD.
Then came the August bombshell, aYahoo Sports story


THL 4: 0 .1 L F ','I FILlC
Former University of Miami coach Randy Shannon had a career
28-20 record with the Hurricanes.
detailing claims from Shapiro that he provided 72 Miami
football players and recruits with cars, cash, yacht trips,
nightclub outings, strip club access and more.
Maybe the only thing Shannon and Shapiro agree on is
this: Neither liked the other very much.
"All I said was 'Wow,'" Shannon said when he heard of
Shapiro's claims. "Everybody knows what kind of per-
son I am. I don't like a lot of distractions or things going
on. And we did extensive education when I was at Mi-
ami, telling kids where they need to go, who they need
to be with, who they needed to watch out for. We did
