Woman dies in crash on -10


From staff reports
A Westville woman died
in a traffic crash late Tues-
day night on Interstate 10
near Bontfay.
Kayla Ann Dady Miller,


22, was pronounced dead
at Southeast Alabama
Medical Center shortly af-
ter being transported there
from the wreck, which oc-
cured at 9:43 p.m.
According to Florida


Highway Patrol reports,
Miller was headed west-
bound in the outside lane
behind another vehicle
and attempting to pass
it, when she lost control
of the 1997 Ford pick-up


truck she was driving.
The truck struck the left
side of the other vehicle,
a 2002 Lincoln four-door
driven by 62-year-old Jan-
ice Gail Hodges.
After impact, the Lincoln


entered the grass shoulder,
of the westbound lane and
came to rest there.
The pick-up- truck en-
tered the grass median of
the road and collided with
a tree in the median.


Matthew Beasley, 28, of
Clarksville, Tenn., was a
passenger in Miller's ve-
hicle and received minor
injuries in the crash.
Hodges did not receive
any injuries.


Crime Report


Man slashes


throat of


girlfriend's


puppy

Charged with animal
cruelty; dog euthanized
BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbuckha!ter@jcfloridan.com
A Grand Ridge man was charged
with animal cruelty after allegedly cut-
ting the throat of a dog that belonged
to his girlfriend, and which had to be
euthanized because of the severity of
the injuries, according to
authorities.
"i : In the complaint filed
against Jerald Randal
Land, 28, investigators
wrote that authorities
had been alerted on Dec.
^Lan d 19 that Land and his girl-
friend were on their way
to a hospital because he had cut his
hand, and that the two had been in a
verbal altercation. An officer pulled
over the truck Land was driving, and
saw that his hand was bleeding. An am-
bulance was summoned, and the offi-
cer spoke with the girlfriend while Land
was being treated by emergency crews.
The woman talked to the officer about
the argument between herself and
Land. She said that Land had "stated
that he would never hurt her but would
do the next best thing," according to the
complaint. She said, "Jerald then picked
her bulldog puppy uip and cut its throat
with a knife." The officer went to the
residence where the altercation had al-
legedly occurred, and found the puppy

Now that Marianna has annexed some
properties just north of the traditional
city limits, the municipality wants juris-
diction over and responsibility for the
roads associated with a subdivision in
the newly annexed area, along with the
road leading into the prison which was
also brought into the city's boundaries.
On Tuesday, Marianna City Man-
ager Jim Dean asked Jackson County

Sen. Montford opens local office


BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbuckhalter@jcfloridan.com

Florida District 6 Sen. Bill
Montford officially opened his
Marianna district, office with
a ribbon-cutting ceremony
Tuesday night.
The office at 2866 Madison
St. may not be his for long;
state redistricting plans could
boot Jackson County into Sen-
ate District 2, with incumbent
Greg Evers currently at the
helm. Montford isn't expected
to keep a local office .if Jackson
falls outside District 6 when
the dust settles.
Also, the 10-year cycle of
redistricting means Montford
will have to run for re-elec-
tion next fall, two years ahead
of the normal election cycle.
Montford said he's already
on the campaign trail for re-
election, and he's also cam-
paigning in Senate committee
meetings for something -else;
to keep Jacksop County in
District 6.
He is on the redistricting
committee, also known as a
reapportionment committee.
He said he thinks Jackson
has more in common with its
current district mates to the
east than it would have with
the communities it would join
to the west if the lines shift the
way they're headed now.


MARK S IN IL / LUiuMI
Florida District 6 Senator Bill Montford talks to the crowd that gathered at the grand opening of his new
Marianna office Tuesday night.


District 6 includes Gadsden,
Jackson, Franklin, Wakulla,
Gulf, Calhoun, Liberty, parts
of Madison and Jefferson and
most of Leon counties..
District 2 includes Holmes,
Washington and the major-
ity of Bay, Escambia, Oka-
loosa, Santa Rosa and Walton
counties.
Montford -said he wants
Jackson to stay in District 6
because of two major factors;


employment and educational
trends of local residents.
Most young people from
this county, he said, wind up
at Florida State, FAMU or Tal-
lahassee Community College
once they finish high school
and Chipola College.
Far more residents of Jack-
son County work in District
6 rather than District 2, he
said. For instance, many work
at Florida State Hospital in


Chattahoochee or for the
state or private businesses in
Tallahassee.
Separating Jackson from
District 6 makes little sense
for its residents, he said.
"I'm going to fight tooth and
nail to hang onto it," he said.
"I think it's a mistake to shift
it into the other district. Sen.
Evers is a good senator and he

tion concluded a project

Luke's, which was founded
in 1838. Sixty-three vet-

Composite Squadron of
the Civil Air Patrol.
This year is the 20th an-
niversary of the Maine
wreaths being donated for
the headstones at Arling-
ton National Cemetery. It
was projected that mem-
bers of the public would
sponsor the placement of
300,000 wreaths on veter-
ans' graves in the U.S. and
abroad in 2011.

opened by Blue Springs

Future of casinos may come down to jobs


The Associated Press

MIAMI Sun-drenched
Miami has beaches, South
Beach nightspots, a new
stadium for the Miami
Marlins and athletic super-
stars like LeBron James.
But nearly 300,000 peo-
ple there are out of work
after hard hits from the
recession and the collapse
of Florida's real estate
market.
Now, some big-money
backers are touting a new
attraction that promises to
boost jobs: Casinos.
They argue Miami can
become a shimmering East
Coast version of Las Vegas,
generating a spark for the
state's stalled economy.
Miami's selling points,
they argue, could help the
area transform itself into a
serious rival to Vegas.
Malaysia-based Genting
Group, which runs a mas-
sive casino in Singapore, is
so sure about the possibil-
ity that it has already spent
nearly a half-billion dol-
lars to acquire property in
downtown Miami, includ-
ing the iconic Miami Her-
ald building that sits oh
the shore of Biscayne Bay.
The group has an ambi-
tious plan to alter the Mi-
ami skyline with a sprawl-
ing $3.8 billion complex
designed to look like coral.
That sounds good to
people like Michael Fer-
rarelli, who right now just
has a part-time job at the
Miami Dolphins stadium.
"With the economy the
way it is and so many peo-
ple out of work right., now,
it's the best way to boost
the economy," Ferrarelli
said. "You're going to bring
thousands of jobs into
each location."
The serious amount of
money already spent by
Genting has sparked the
interest of other Las Ve-
gas casino operators, not
to mention those who al-
ready own sports facilities.
in South Florida.
This new vision for Mi-
ami, however, .will require
approval from the Repub-
lican-led Legislature and
Gov. Rick Scott. Casino
backers have already be-
gun a full-tilt lobbying ef-
fort and it appears the de-
bate over gambling will be
one of the biggest issues
lawmakers deal with dur-
ing the session that starts
next month.
It would be tempting to
think lawmakers are ea-
ger to go along, as Florida
grapples with a 10 percent
unemployment rate.
But that's not the case.
The initial bill filed by
two South Florida legisla-
tors' calls for each com-
pany wanting a casino
to spend a minimum of
$2 billion. It has won the
backing of builders and
contractors as well as one
of the state's big business
lobbying outfits which
maintains it could mean

as many as 100,000 jobs,
although backers have yet
to release any studies that
back up that figure.
But a diverse coalition-
ranging from Disney
World, the Florida Cham-
ber of Commerce and ex-
isting dog and horse track
owners worried about their
future want. lawmakers
to reject the concept.
They contend such a
massive proposal will harm
the businesses already
here because the prom-
ises of luring thousands
of tourists from across the
country and world won't
pan out. They point to Ne-
vada's struggling economy
as proof that gambling is
not what's needed to turn
around the state.
"The reason these bil-
lion dollar casinos want
to leave Atlantic City and
Las Vegas is that they know
Florida is growing," said
Mark Wilson, president of
the Florida Chamber. "It
would be a fundamental
mistake for us to fall for
that bet."
There's no doubt that
Floridians already spend a
lot of money on gambling.
The state-controlled lot-
tery racked up more than
$4 billion in sales during
the last fiscal year and this
fall ticket sales have been
climbing even higher.
Florida voters, con-
cerned about crime and
other social ills associated
with addictive gambling,
have rejected casinos in
the past.
But back in .2004 the
state's voters granted Bro-
ward and Miami-Dade
the right to hold local ref-
erendums on whether to
add slot machines at dog
and horse tracks in those
counties. Then former
Gov. Charlie Crist negoti-
ated a compact with The
Seminole Tribe of Florida.
It led to a deal that gave
the tribe a five-year exclu-
sive deal to let them offer
card games like blackjack
at their casinos in Tampa
and in South Florida.
State .economists say the
existing pari-mutuels and
Indian gaming generate
another $3 billion on top
of the lottery.
Genting officials con-


tend that adding three new
mega-casinos could gen-
erate anywhere from $4.5
billion to $7 billion more,
double what is happening
in the state now.
ColinAu, head of Genting
Americas, stood recently
before a state Senate com-
mittee and made elabo-
.rate promises to back that
figure up. He said his com-
pany would make sure to
lure travelers from as far
away as Asia by guarantee-
ing to purchase half the
seats on nonstop flights
across the Pacific. He tried
to assuage fears that his re-
sort would compete with
Disney World, by saying
his hotel would'sell tens of
thousands of tickets to the
theme park.
Au also disputed claims
his resort would harm
existing restaurants and
hotels.
"We are spreading the
cake all over the place," Au
.said.
But this optimistic take
on casinos isn't shared by
some who. follow the gam-
bling industry.
Janet Brashear, a Wall
Street analyst, has con-
cluded that South Florida
casinos could succeed in
attracting tourists, pos-
sibly to the detriment of
both Atlantic City and Las
Vegas.
But Brashear, of Bern-
stein Research, doubts


that the state can support
what is now envisioned.
She warns that Florida is
not a "clean slate" and that
it would have to become
larger than Las Vegas to
support a return on the
level of investment man-
dated by the legislation.
Still Badih "Bob" Bou-
nahra, who splits time be-
tween Fort Lauderdale and
Belize, says he's a poker
player who would spend
more time in Florida if
mega-casinos came. to the
state.
He said he spends more
time gambling in Las Ve-
gas because he can find a
high-stakes poker game
anytime he wants it as op-
posed to what he finds at
the Seminole Hard Rock
Hotel & Casino.
"Poker players are look-
ing for people to play at
games, but not to play
with the same people they
see every day," Bounahra
said; "If you go to the Hard
Rock, it's the same players.
It can get kind of so that
everybody knows you and'
your game."
State economists looking
at the casino legislation
have their ownstrouble try-.
ingto quantify the financial
windfall to state and local
governments. They have
cast doubts on the amount
of first-time tourists who
would come to Florida for
destination resorts. Their

initial models suggest
that at least two-thirds of
those likely to show up at
the new casinos are tour-
ists who already conie and
spend money in the state.
Then there's those who
run the state's existing
pari-mutuels.
They say they are sure.
that if the legislation be-
comes law it will put them
out of business because
the current proposal gives
the new mega,-casinos a
lower tax rate and permis-
sion to run around-the-


clock gambling.
"All we're saying is, we're
the existing casino indus-
try in Florida," said Izzy
Havenick, vice president
of political affairs at Magic
City Casino. "Treat us the
same as you're going to
treat these out of-state and
out-of-country gambling
interests."
The level of opposition
that has mounted against
the casino proposal so far
may doom it this year.
Scott so far has avoided
taking a direct stance.

Tons of Fun participants lose 317 pounds


BY LAUREN DELGADO
Idelgado@jcfloridan.com

The results are in. The
Tons of Fun Competition,
an 11-week weight loss
contest for Jackson County
School District employees,
ended last Friday.
"It's a good, healthy
competition," said Jack
Noonan, the food service
director.
The 57 participants lost
a total of 317 pounds,
amounting to each person
losing an average of 4.75
percent of their weight.
The 14-person group,
from Grand Ridge School
lost the most weight. Their
total weight loss amount-
ed to 150.8 pounds.
Employees formed their
own groups, with each
member paying $1 a week.
The money raised went to
the winners. They could
either weigh in every Mon-
day or the first and last day
of the event.

February.
Tons of Fun was an
idea of Noonan's, who
has watched r"The Big-
gest Loser" off and on. He
wanted a way to promote


living a healthy lifestyle to
both the district's employ-
ees and students. Noonan
figured this competi-
tion would have a "trickle
down" effect on students,


with participants shar-
ing their experiences with
them.
"Once you walk the walk,
that's where the difference
comes in," Noonan said.


Quilters Guild gives back to the community


BY LAUREN DELGADO
ldelgado@jcfloridan.com

Almost every Tuesday,
the ladies of the Jackson
County Quilters Guild
gather together and work
on their projects. It can
take anywhere from a few
days to months to com-
plete each unique piece.
"We enjoy making things
with our hands," said Di-
ane Hiller, the guild's pres-
ident. "It's kind of a relax-
ing thing. It's nice to create
something."
Some members sell
their quilts, but most give
them away to friends and
family.
The guild also tries to
donate quilts to people or
organizations in need of
something comforting or
a fundraising item.
"Just to put back into
the. community and help
those'who might need a
little help or something
to hug onto when they're
feeling sad," Hiller said.
The guild donated 12
unique lap quilts to the
Anchorage Children's
Home on Wednesday. The
nonprofit helps children

meeting, saidWoodley had
been in a quilting club in
south Florida and wanted
to bring the organization
to her new Jackson County
home.
Quilting is a dying art,
Hiller said. The expense of
the materials and amount
of time needed for quilt-
ing dissuades many from
trying the hobby. It's easier
to run out to the store and
simply buy a quilt.
"The young people just
don't seem to want to do it
like their mothers or their
grandmothers did," Hiller
said.
The guild is about more
than quilting, Hiller said.
Friends are made, prob-
lems are solved, all in the
span of a two-and-a-half
hour meeting.
* "It's a wonderful group
of people," Hiller said.
The guild meets ev-
ery Tuesday from 5:30-8
p.m., at the First United
Methodist Church Wes-
ley Center in Marianna.
The fourth Tuesday is a
regular meeting; all other
Tuesday are a sit and sew.
December meetings have
been suspended for the
holidays.

Obama urges Hill leaders


to extend payroll tax cut


The Associated Press

WASHINGTON Seeking to break a
stalemate that is threatening 160 million
workers with Jan. 1 tax increases, Presi-
dent Barack Obama urged the top lead-
ers of Congress Wednesday to first pass
a short-term extension while promising
to work with lawmakers on a full-year
measure.
Obama's calls to House Speaker John
Boehner, R-Ohio, and Senate Majority
Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., came as the
two leaders were trapped in a deadlock
over competing demands. House Re-
publicans insist on immediate talks on a
full-year measure; Democrats insist the
House adopt a bipartisan Senate plan for
a 60-day extension and focus on the full-
year plan when Congress returns from
vacation in January.
The White House said Obama told
Boehner that "the short-term bipartisan
compromise passed by almost the en-
tire Senate is the only option to ensure
that middle-class families aren't hit with
a tax hike in 10 days and gives both sides
the time needed to work out a full-year
solution."
An aide to the speaker .said Boehner
urged the president to press Reid to en-
gage in negotiations on a full-year exten-
sion of a 2 percentage point tax cut for
every worker and jobless benefits for mil-
lions of people out of work for more than
six months.
"Let's get this done today," Boehner
told Obama, according to the aide, who
required anonymity to characterize a pri-
vate conversation.
Boehner's reaction gave no hints of
a breakthrough, even though House


Republicans appear increasingly isolated.
They're not getting support from Senate
Republicans and are battling against a
president whose approval numbers, while
not impressive, are better than theirs.
Earlier Wednesday, the combatants on
Capitol Hill continued to fight over a bat-
tleground that's already well worn.
Reid started the day with a letter to
Boehner to urge him to bring House
lawmakers back to Washington and ap-
prove a bipartisan measure the Senate
approved overwhelmingly last weekend.
That bill would extend the payroll tax cut
and jobless benefits for two months, giv-
ing bargainers time to agree to a more ex-
pensive, yearlong measure.
"Because we have a responsibility to as-
sure middle-class families that their taxes
will not go up while we work out our dif-
ferences, we must pass this immediate
extension first," Reid wrote.
Minutes later, Boehner and other top
House Republicans invited reporters into
a meeting where they urged Reid to bring
senators back to town so they can. nego-
tiate over a yearlong extension of the tax
cut and jobless benefits. The bill would
also postpone a scheduled Jan. 1 cut of 27
percent in payments to doctors who treat
Medicare patients.
'"All we're asking for is to get Senate
members over here to work with us to re-
solve our differences so we can do what
everybody wants to," Boehner said.
Obama and leaders of both parties want
to extend the tax cuts and jobless benefits
and prevent the cut in doctors' reimburse-
ments for an entire year. Most lawmakers
have left Washington for the Christmas
and NewYear's holiday, but could quickly
return to vote on any agreement.


New FAA rules to end flying while sleepy


The Associated Press

WASHINGTON The
government told passenger
airlines Wednesday they'll
have to do moreto ensure
pilots aren't too tired to fly,
nearly three years after the
deadly western New York
crash of a regional airliner
flown by two exhausted
pilots.
The Federal Aviation
Administration's update
of airline pilot work rules,
some of which dated to the
1960s, reflects'a better un-
derstanding of the need for
rest and how night shifts
and traveling through time
zones can increase errors.
"This is a big deal,"
Transportation Secretary
Ray LaHood said. "This is
as far as our government
has ever gone" to protect
the traveling public from
pilot fatigue.
Carriers have two years
to adapt to the new rules.
The FAA estimated the cost
to industry at $297 million
over 10 years, a fraction of
the $2 billion a year that
an airline trade association
had estimated the draft
proposal released by FAA
over a year ago would cost.
The airline industry had
opposed the draft rule as
too costly for the safety
benefits it would achieve.
But FAA officials made
substantial changes to the
final rule to lower the cost.
Several .expensive report-
ing and training require-
ments were eliminated.
Safety advocates have
been urging FAA for over
two decades to update pi-
lot work rules, but previous
efforts stalled after airlines
and pilots unions were un-
able to agree on changes.
Those efforts were revived
after the February 2009
crash near Buffalo that
killed 50 people. Families
of the dead have lobbied
relentlessly for more strin-
gent regulations to fight
pilot fatigue.
The rules would limit the
maximum time a pilot can
be scheduled to be on duty
including wait time be-
fore flights to between
nine and 14 hours. The to-
tal depends on the time of
day pilots begin their first
flight and the number of
time zones crossed.
The maximum amount
of time pilots can be sched-
uled to fly is limited to eight
,or nine hours, and pilots
would get a minimum of
10 hours to rest between
duty periods, a two-hour
increase over the old rules.
The minimum amount
of time off between work
weeks will be increased 25
percent.

Economy ends 2011 on upswing


The Associated Press

WASHINGTON The
economy is ending 2011
on a roll.
The job market is
healthier. Americans are
spending lustily on holi-
day gifts. A long-awaited
turnaround for the de-
pressed housing industry
may be under way. Gas
is cheaper. Factories are
busier. Stocks are higher.
Not bad for an economy
faced with a debt crisis in
Europe and, as recently
/as this summer, scattered
predictions of a second
recession at home. In-
stead, the economy has
grown faster each quar-
ter this year, and the last
three months should be
the best.
"Things are looking up,"
says Chris Rupkey, chief
financial economist at the
Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi
UFJ.
When The Associated
Press surveyed 43 econo-"
mists in August, they
pegged the likelihood
of another recession at
roughly one in four. The
Dow Jones industrial av-
erage was lurching up or
down by 400 points or
more some days.
There was plenty of rea-
son for gloom.. A political
standoff over the federal
borrowing limit brought*
the United States to the
brink of default and cost
the nation its top-drawer
credit rating.
Most analysts now rule
out another recession.
They think the econo-
my will grow at an an-
nual rate of more than
3 percent from October
through December, the
fastest pace since a 3.8
percent performance the
spring of 2010.
Many economists still
worry that the year-end
surge isn't sustainable,
in part because the aver-
age worker's pay is barely
rising.
And Europe may al-

ready be sliding into a re-
cession that will infect the
United States.
The outlook could dark-
en further if Congress
can't break the impasse
blocking an extension of
a Social Security tax cut
for 160 million Americans
and emergency unem-
ployment benefits.
Yet for now, the econo-


my is on an upswing that
few had predicted.
Once theypeerinto 2012,
economists turn cautious.
Bernard Baumohl, chief
economist with the Eco-
nomic Outlook Group,
says that stronger con-
sumer spending "is abso-
lutely unsustainable ....
Wages have not kept pace
with inflation all year."

Rodgers named AP male athlete of the year


The Associated Press

GREEN BAY, Wis. When Aaron Rodgers needs to re-
kindle the feelings that drove his rise from a junior col-
lege quarterback to Super Bowl MVP, he doesn't have to
look too far.
Rodgers held on to the many rejection letters he re-
ceived from marquee college programs as he was com-
ing out of high school. Even today, he leaves a few of
them sitting out at his house.
"I chose the couple that I thought were most demean-
ing to display in a space in my house that really.nobody
is able to see but myself," Rodgers said. "It's something
that I think is important to keep fresh on your mind.
Maybe not every day, but once a week your eyes might
pan across it and you have a little laugh about the jour-
ney you've been on at the same time, remembering
that. there still are people out there that you can prove
something to."
Good luck finding those doubters now.
Rodgers is the 2011 Male Athlete of the Year, chosen by
members of The Associated Press, after he turned in an
MVP performance in the Green Bay Packers' Super Bowl
victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers in February and then
went on to lead his team on a long unbeaten run this
season.
Rodgers received 112 votes out of the 212 ballots sub-
mitted from U.S. news organizations that make up the
AP's membership. Detroit Tigers pitcher JustinVerlander
finished second with 50 votes, followed by tennis stand-
out Novak Djokovic (21), Carolina Panthers rookie quar-
terback Cam Newton (6) and NASCAR champion Tony
Stewart (5).
Rodgers is one of three quarterbacks to receive the
honor in the past five years. The New Orleans Saints'
Drew Brees won in 2010 and the New England Patriots'
Tom Brady won in 2007.'
Rodgers says it still feels "surreal at times" to be con-
sidered among the biggest names in sports.
"Those guys are household names, the best of the
best," Rodgers said. "(It's) special to win the award, and
something I'll remember."
Through 14 games this season, Rodgers has completed
68.1 percent of his passes for 4,360 yards with 40 touch-
downs and six interceptions. The Packers are 13-1, and
Rodgers' play is leaving people speechless even his
coach, Mike McCarthy.
"I'm running out of things to say about him," McCar-
thy said earlier this month, after Rodgers drove the Pack-
ers into position for a-last-second, game-wiiming field
goal to beat the NewYork Giants.
Green Bay's 19-game winning streak came to an end at
Kansas City on Sunday, but the Packers remain a strong
favorite to repeat as champions. That's thanks in large
part to Rodgers' knack for making big plays without ma-
jor mistakes.
It has been a long and challenging journey out of ob-
scurity for Rodgers, who wasn't offered a big-time schol-


arship out of high school and had to play a year in junior
college. Then came his agonizing wait on draft day, three
seasons on the bench behind Brett Favre and a tumultu-
ous first year as a starter.
If Rodgers' path to stardom had been smoother, he says
he wouldn't be the player or person he is today.
"It's something that gives me perspective all the time,
knowing. that the road I took was difficult. But it did
shape my character and it shaped my game as well,"
Rodgers said.
"I try and keep that on my mind as a good perspec-
tive, but also as a motivator, knowing that it took a lot to
get to where I am now and it's going to take a lot to stay
where I'm at."
Strangely, earning widespread respect throughout the
sports world could become a challenge in and of itself
for Rodgers, who draws motivation from proving him-
self to his doubters and critics.
Is that becoming more difficult?
"It would only be tougher if you stopped remember-
ing or drawing or thinking about those things," Rodgers
said. "And I think a great competitor has to have at least
some sort of chip on their shoulder, or at least the at-
titude that you have something to prove every time you
take the (field)."
Unable to attract attention from a big-time college
program, Rodgers played a year at Butte College in Oro-
ville, Calif., near his hometown of Chico. His play there
eventually got the attention of Cal coach Jeff Tedford,
and Rodgers.transferred.
Rodgers thrived at Cal and went into the 2005 NFL
draft expecting to be taken early in the first round. But
he didn't hear his name called until the Packers chose
him with the 24th overall pick.

Horoscope
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.
19) If you hope to be an
effective leader, you must
first set the example that
you wish others to follow.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
19) That sudden whim to
drop in on someone might
not be such a good idea.
Call first.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March
20) Look gift horses
in the mouth, and with
a jaundiced eye. Should
someone give you some-
thing for no apparent rea-
son, chances are he or she
will be expecting you to
return the favor.
ARIES (March 21-April
19) This can be either a
good day or a disappoint-
ing one, depending upon
with whom you choose to
spend your time. Select
pals who, share the same
interests as you.
-TAURUS (April 20-May
20) Your attention span.
might not have much stay-
ing power, so it could be
best to do all the demand-
ing tasks first.
GEMINI (May 21-June
20) Don't be too quick
to put much credence in
a business proposal pre-
sented to you by a new
acquaintance.
CANCER (June 21-July
22) Should two friends
of yours of whom you're
equally fond be at odds
with one another, stay out
of it and don't try to be a
peacemaker. Both could
turn on you instead.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) If
you're using a helpmate
to tackle a hazardous task,
keep a yvatchful eye on
what this person is doing.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
- As prudent as you are,
you could still let your
guard down and empty
your wallet before you
know it.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
- When making a request
of your mate, a lack of tact
on your part could cause
him or her to react in a way
opposite from the one you
were hoping for.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22)
-Friends aren't likely to be
prepared to cope with any
last-minute changes.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-
Dec. 21) Self-discipline is
likely to be required to sub-
due temptations to take big
risks for fanciful reasons.


Annie's Mailbox


Dear Annie: A year ago, my girlfriend
and I started dating, but this isn't what
you would call a normal relationship. She
and I live'about 500 hundred miles apart.
We connected four years ago in an
online chat room of a popular animated
web series and sent messages back and
forth. A few months later, she called, and
we texted back and forth and then gradu-
ated to instant messaging and then web
cam chats.
Recently, I have been pondering the
feasibility of our relationship. I want to
spend more time with her. But I'm a 20-
something with a modest-paying regular
job and a part-time weekend job, and I
also take classes at a local community
college. I find it difficult to save enough
money let alone find the time to visit her.
Even if she relocated, she would be mov-
ing away from her friends and family. Is
there any hope for us?
-MADLY IN LOVE

Dear Madly: Yes, but it requires some
difficult choices. You are still young. You
haven't spent much time together, and
being with someone in close proximity


Bridge


In today's deal, declarer seems doomed to
defeat after the defenders start well. However,
if South spends some time looking for a line
that will work, he will succeed in the face of
unfavorable odds. South is in four spades. West
leads the diamond queen. East overtakes with
his king, cashes the ace, and shifts to the heart
jack. How should declarer continue?
North made a game-invitational limit raise.
South went for the vulnerable game, hop-
ing for the best. If East held the heart king, he
would not have captured both diamond tricks;
he would have overtaken at trick one and re-
turned a low diamond at trick two for a heart
shift through dummy's ace. So there is no point
in South's playing his queen.
However, although it looks as if declarer is
destined to lose one heart, two diamonds and
one club, he has one chance: West has fewer
than three clubs. South should take trick three
with dummy's heart ace, draw trumps, cash his
top clubs, and trump his last diamond before
casting adrift with a heart. Here, West takes
that trick but must concede a ruff-and-sluff.
Declarer ruffs in the dummy and sluffs his re-
maining club.


day after day can change how you feel.
Every relationship is a leap of faith. Can
she get a job in your area? Can you find
one in hers? Would it be better to wait
until you are finished with your educa-
tion? Can you see each other more often
if you meet somewhere in the middle?
These are things you need to discuss.

Dear Annie: "Worried Dad in Gary, Ind."
feared for his daughter, who was in an
abusive relationship. Two years ago, my
daughter was murdered by her abusive
husband at the young age of 26. They
had been separated for six months, and
two days before he killed her, she had
asked for a divorce.
My daughter was in this abusive rela-
tionship for eight years. We begged her to
go to the Domestic Violence Service Cen-
ter, but she never did. She was over the
age of 18, but in hindsight, I wish I had
forcibly driven her to the center myself.
All women in abusive relationships
need to get help ASAP before they are
murdered. We need to have mandatory
education about abusive dating.

NFL: Week 16



Can Patriots stop Bush?


The Associated Press

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -.Ear-
lier this season, the Patriots
ranked among the NFL's leaders
in rushing defense. They hadn't
allowed an opposing running
back to surpass 100 yards in 21
straight games dating to last
year.
The last two weeks, the other
team has run all over them. New
England is now ranked 19th in
the league against the run, al-
lowing 117.6 yards per game.
Next up are the Miami Dol-
phins and Reggie Bush, who
has rushed for a career-high


973 yards this season, including
203 and a 76-yard touchdown
run against the Buffalo Bills on
Sunday.
Washington rookie Roy Helu
exposed the Patriots two weeks
ago by gashing the defense for
126 of the Redskins' 170-yard
rushing total. Then came Den-
ver's top-ranked running game.
Tim Tebow and the Broncos
amassed 167 yards rushing in
the first quarter alone en route
to 252 yards.
The Patriots are now even more
vulnerable against the run after
leading pass rusher Andre Carter
was lost to a season-ending leg


injury last week.
Bush brings three straight 100-
yard games to New England (11-
3) on Saturday when he and the
Dolphins will try to snap the AFC
East champions' six-game win-
ning streak.
"When you think of Reggie
Bush, you just think electric
plays," Patriots defensive end
Shaun Ellis said. "So far that's
what he's been getting. So for us,
we just got to pay attention to
our keys, read our blocks, get off
the blocks and make the tackle."
Bush rushed for just 38 yards
on 11 attempts in a season-
opening 38-24 loss to the Patri-


Miami Dolphins' Reggie Bush runs the ball against the Buffalo Bills during
the first half of Sunday's game in Orchard Park, N.Y.


ots. He did catch nine passes for
56 yards and a touchdown and
has 1,243 yards from scrimmage
this season. ,
"He's a special guy," New Eng-


land linebacker Rob Ninkovich
said. "A guy like Reggie can do
a lot of different things. ... So,
you've just got .to make sure you
don't let him do those things."


Dallas so close, yet Jones remains scared of Philadelphia


The Associated Press

IRVING, Texas -With another
NFC East title so close for the
Dallas Cowboys, team owner
Jerry Jones seems to be caught
between the excitement and fear
of what could happen.
The Cowboys can clinch their


18th division title since 1970 by
winning their last two games.
They are in that position after
plenty of close games, with five
of their losses coming by an av-
erage margin of four points and
the biggest being six points in
overtime.
But there is also that one lop-


sided blemish, a 34-7 loss nearly
two months ago at Philadelphia,
the team the Cowboys (8-6) play
in their regular-season home fi-
nale Saturday.
Maybe that's why Jones un-
charjacteristically expressed pub-
licly being scared of the Eagles.
"There is obviously a thrill to


dream about what can be out
here, the success," Jones ex-
plained during one of his regular
weekly radio appearances this
week.
"But I'm also, because it is the
Eagles, after the butt-kicking
they gave us up in Philadelphia,
I'm scared."


The Eagles (6-8) still have a
chance to win the NFC East and
get to the, playoffs, if they win
both of their last two games and
get some help.
That would include the New
York Giants (7-7) losing their
game earlier Saturday against
the NewYork Jets.


NBA



Rose, Bulls



sign 5-year



extension


The Associated Press

DEERFIELD, M. Der-
rick Rose was going down
the list, thanking just about
everyone who helped him
become one of the NBA's
best players, when he
looked to his right.
Seated off to the side was
his mother, Brenda.
"I think I can finally say
this now. Mom, I finally
made it," he said.
Rose, the Chicago Bulls'
superstar point guard and
the league's reigning MVP,
agreed Wednesday to a
five-year extension worth
more than $94 million.
It's fair to say Rose made
it long before this latest
news conference. The ex-
tension is just another
stop in a rapid and steady
rise to a starring role with
his hometown team after
being taken with the No. 1
pick in the draft.
He's gone from Rookie of


the Year to All-Star to MVP
in just three seasons, be-
coming the youngest play-
er to win the award.
The only thing missing
from his resume is a cham-
pionship and that's some-
thing he hopes to change
in Year 4.
"He embodies all the
characteristics that you
look for," coach Tom
Thibodeau said. "It's a lot
more.than the talent. The
talent is the obvious part.
Then, when you look at his
will to win, basketball IQ,
unselfishness, his humil-
ity I think those are the
things that you can build
a championship-caliber
team around."
The Bulls came close
to winning it all last year,
leading the league with 62
victories during the regu-
lar season and advancing
to the Eastern Confer-
ence finals before losing to
Miami.

Griffin
From Page 1B
Already the winner of the
Heisman Trophy and Dav-
ey O'Brien Award, Griffin
won AP Player of the Year
on Wednesday.
The aspiring lawyer, who
arrived at Baylor nearly
four years ago as a 17-year-
kid after graduating high
school early, is the nation's
most efficient passer this
season, throwing for 3,998
yards with a Big 12-leading
36 touchdowns and only
six interceptions. He also
ran for 644 yards and nine
more scores:
Baylor (9-3) has a five-
game winning streak, its
longest in 20 years, go-
ing into the Alamo Bowl
next week. With a win
over Washington, the
15th-ranked Bears would
match the school record
of 10 wins set during Mike
Singletary's senior season
in 1980.
In his comeback from in-
jury last year, after getting
a medical redshirt that
means he's now a fourth-
year junior, Griffin helped
lead the Bears to their first
Top 25 ranking since 1993
and their first bowl game
in the Big 12 era. Baylor
hadn't even had a winning
season in the first 14 Big 12
seasons.
That year on the side-
line was the toughest for
Griffin and the Bears, who
__went frqm big expecta-
::, ,- .. .- .. -


tio.ns to another losing
record without their star
quarterback.
"You miss out mak-
ing plays and doing
great things," Griffin
said. "I missed playing,
I missed practicing, but
you really just miss your
teammates."
Bythe time Griffin played
his first game for the Bears
in 2008, when at 18 he was'
the nation's youngest FBS
starting quarterback, he
was already a Big 12 cham-
pion and NCAA All-Ameri-
can in the 400-meter hur-
dles. He set an FBS record
by throwing 209 passes to
start his career before his
first interception.
Griffin passed for 2,091
yards and 15 TDs with 843
yards and 13 more scores
rushing as a freshman.
But then he got hurt on
the opening series of the
third game of his sopho-
more season. He finished
the first half of that game
against Northwestern State
on a gimpy leg, throwing
for 226 yards and three
touchdowns to push the
Bears ahead 41-10.
He didn't take another
snap that season.
Griffin said his focus is on
the Alamo Bowl and trying
to get Baylor's 10th win. Af-
ter that, he will discuss his
options with his family.
"If I come back, people
would be like why. If I
leave, people at Baylor will
be like why," he said. "So
it's a tough decision."
