Man accused of kidnapping girlfriend


From staff reports
A Cottondale man -alleg-
edly kidnapped his girlfriend,
physically abusing her at ev-
ery new location he took her,
and then threatened her with
a machete before she was
able to escape, according to
the Jackson County Sheriff's


Office.
Reginald Devon Ward was
charged with false imprison-
ment, felony battery by stran-
gulation, and aggravated as-
sault with a deadly weapon.
According to the Sheriff's of-
fice press release, Ward took
the victim against her will
to several, different places


throughout the day, begin-
ning at 9 a.m.
At each location, Ward
would hit and choke her. He
threw her out of the car at
one point but went back and
picked her up again.
The victim said Ward made
her undress and told her that
"if he was going to go back to


prison, he was going to make
it worth his while." He then
threatened to kill her.
Ward went to get the ma-
chete, giving the victim time
to try to drive away. .Ward
jumped into the back of the
truck, and the victim called
911 at 2:38 p.m. She then
drove east on Highway 90 un-


til she met the officers.
Ward threw the machete
from the truck once he saw
the approaching officers,
but it was retrieved later for
evidence.
Ward was taken to the
Jackson County' Correc-
tional Facility to await first
appearance.


IN THE HOLIDAY SPIRIT



Ornament Day at library


memory-maker


is a


BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbuckhalter@jcfloridan.com
Children and their
grown-ups made
more than pretty
things for the Christmas
tree on Ornament Days at
the libraries in Marianna
and Graceville this year;
they were making memo-
ries as they dabbled in
the paint, glitter, glue and
paper.
Debra Hinson stood by
in the Marianna branch
Thursday, ready to lend a
helping hand if needed as,',
two of her granddaughters
worked. They assembled an
elaborate ornament made
of sky-blue sheets of paper.
After 12-year-old Karissa
Mercer cut the paper into
their appropriate shapes,
9-year-old Karlee Mercer
taped them together. They
worked independently but
side-by-side on some other
projects, as well.
Watching them brought
memories back to Hinson.
With tenderness and smiles,
she recalled the days long
ago when the girls' mother,
Stephanie, and her siblings
made clothespin reindeer
and other ornaments to
hang on their Christmas
tree at home.
She said the Ornament
Day tradition she and her
grandchildren'started this
year is one of many trea-
sured activities she shares
with the youngsters.,
Debbie Giles helped
her 10-year-old son Joe
and nine-year-old daugh-
ter Mandie as they put
together an assortment

own childhood of creative
holiday endeavors, and said
her mother still hangs her
homemade ornaments on
her tree in Colorado each
year..
She's been bringing Joe

Day since the tradition
started in Jackson County
several years ago, and said

study guides

MHS biology teachers
send home review packets
for end-of-course exam
BY LAUREN DELGADO
ldelgado@jcfloridan.com
Marianna High School biology teach-
ers are asking parents to review study
guides sent home with ninth grade bi-
ology students. '
The study guides will prepare students
for the end-of-course exam, which ac-
counts for 30 percent of the student's
final grade this year. Next year, this
exam will be pass/fail, said MHS biol-
ogy teacher Melanie Mitchell.
This is the first of a series of packets
MHS biology students will receive. It re-
views everything the students learned
in biology this semester.
"We don't want the students to lose
what they learned," Mitchell said.
About 85 multiple choice, five comple-
tion and several short answer questions
make up the packet. Most students are
used to multiple choice questions that
ask them to identify the right answer.
This exam is different, Mitchell said,
because it asks students to use their
critical thinking skills to find the best
answer.
"We really have to pay more attention
to content, questions, applications,"
Mitchell said. "It's got to be a little

Conflict of

Board attorney has tie to

BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbijckhalter@jcfloridan.com

As Jackson County Commissioners
prepare to buy the two-story building
that houses upstairs offices for the State
Attorney in Marianna, the board will
have to find an outside lawyer to draw
up the contract. Board attorney Frank
Baker has a potential conflict of inter-
est; his wife, Lynn Baker is a principal
owner in the structure on Green Street,
along with Jerry Glass, an investigator
with the public defender's office.
The 6,063-square-foot upper floor of
the building was leased by the county
in June, 2005, after then-state attorney
Steve Meadows requested additional
space for his offices. Baker notified the

Florida yoga teacher named 'world's oldest'


The Associated Press
PINELLAS PARK
The yoga teacher
in the front of the
room lay on the floor,
her hands resting on her
upper thighs. She lifted
her right leg high in the
air, foot flexed. Then she
grabbed her right foot
in her right hand and
brought her leg toward
her face as she raised her
upper body a few inches
off the ground.
Students in class smiled
in amazement as they
watched the teacher's
knee graze her nose.
It wasn't just the pose
that was amazing it was
the teacher's age. Bernice
Bates is 91 years old, and
she's more flexible than
people who are a third of
her age.
"If you can't quite meet
your knee, that's all right,"
Bates told her class, gently.
Guinness World Records,
recently awarded Bates
the title of "OldestYoga
Teacher." While there
might be other, older yogis
somewhere in the world,,
Bates completed the
lengthy documentation,
process required by Guin-
ness. She was nominated
earlier this year by her
daughter.
Bates first began practic-
ing yoga 50 years ago, after
she saw it on a television
program. Asa younger
woman, she taught swim-
ming in Ohio at aYWCA.
These days, the great-
grandmother teaches once

Man charged withBUI
after falling off boat
NAPLES.-Authorities
say a southwest Florida
man was drunk when he.
fell off his boat, causing
the vessel to speed out of
control and crash.
Police say the boat
circled out of control in
Naples Bay Wednesday
night before running into
the docks at a resort. Since
no one was in the boat,
rescuers began searching
the water.

Her students are usually
a decade or two younger
than she is.
Each class begins with
a short discussion ohn
a recent day, Bates talked
about the importance of
flexing and caring for one's
feet and then Bates
takes the class through a
series of about a dozen
Oinvasas. or yoga poses.
She uses.a soft blue mat
and wears black ballet,
slippers while teaching.
She ends with a guided
relaxation while playing
NewAge music on her
portable cassette player.
Bates believes in gentle
yoga: no sweaty, strenuous
or competitive stretching
in her classes.
"You may not do it per-
fect, but there's no perfect
person.. she said.
She talks about her
students who have ben-
efited from her teaching:
two'women in their 80s,
a couple in their 90s, a
handful in their 70s.
',They feel great," she.
said. "It makes your whole
body whole again. It's

Kathleen Techler, 86, has

"It loosens up my

who shrugs at the sugges-
tion that she is flexible.
Gentle exercises like
yoga and tai chi can be
especially good for seniors
because they build bal-
ance, which can help
prevent.t falls. medical
experts say.
"One'ofthe main rea-
sons why people become
non-functional or even die
is because of falls," said
Dr. Fernando Branco, the
medical director for the
Rosomoff Comprehensive
Rehabilitation Center'
and Brucker Biofeedback
Center in Miami. "Those
things can be catastrophic
when you're 85. When
you're 85 and you go into
:bed for several weeks or
months because of a slow
healing fracture, you're
taking lot of risks."
Branco said that more
folks should follow in
Bates' yogic footsteps.
Yoga also has other ben-
efits, he said.
In a study published by
the National Institutes
of Health in 2005, yoga
was found to improve hip
extension and increase
stride length in a group of
senior citizens who par-
ticipated in the research.
"In general the idea that
just because you are older
you have less of a range of
motion, that is really not
correct," he said.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio, surrounded by Republican House members, speaks
during a news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington, on Tuesday.


Payroll tax deadlock ends


The Associated Press

WASHINGTON House Republi-
cans on Thursday caved to demands by
President Barack Obama, congressional
Democrats and fellow Republicans for
a short-term renewal of payroll tax cuts
for all workers. The breakthrough almost
certainly spares workers an average $20 a
week tax increase Jan. 1.
After days of wrangling that even Speak-
er John Boehner acknowledged "may not
have been politically the smartest thing in
the world," the Ohio Republican abruptly
changed course and dropped demands
for immediate holiday season talks with
the Senate on a full-year measure that all
sides said they want.
The House and Senate plan to act on
the two-month extension Friday.
House Republicans were under fire
from their constituents and GOP estab-
lishment figures incensed that they would
risk losing the tax cut issue to Democrats
at the dawn of the 2012 presidential and
congressional election year..
"In the end House Republicans felt like
they were reenacting the Alamo, with no
reinforcements and our friends shooting
at us," said Rep. Kevin Brady, R-Texas.
Boehner said he expects both House
and Senate. to pass a new bill by Christ-
mas that would renew the tax break while
congressional negotiators work out a
one-year measure that would also extend
jobless benefits for millions of Americans
and prevent doctors from absorbing a big'
cut in Medicare payments.
The developments were a clear win for
Obama. The payroll tax cut was the cen-
terpiece of his three-month campaign-
style drive for jobs legislation that seems
to have contributed to an uptick in his
poll numbers.
"Because of this agreement, every
working.American will keep his or her tax
cut about $1,000 for the average fam-
ily," Obama said in a statement. "That's


about $40 in every paycheck. And when
Congress returns, I urge them to keep
working to reach an agreement that will
extend this tax cut and unemployment
insurance for all of 2012 without drama
or delay."
If the cuts had expired as scheduled,
160 million workers would have seen a 2
percentage point increase in their Social
Security taxes. And up to 2 million people
without jobs for six months would start
losing unemployment benefits averaging
$300 a week.
The GOP retreat ends a tense standoff
in which Boehner's House Repiublicans
came under great pressure to agree to the
short-term extension passed by the Sen-
ate on Saturday. The speaker was initially
open to the idea, but rank and file Repub-
licans revolted and the House instead in-
sisted on immediate talks.
The conflict arose after the Senate, on
a bipartisan vote, passed legislation last
week to extend for two months the pay-
roll tax cut, jobless benefits and doctors'
Medicare fees that otherwise would have
been cut 27 percent.
The House had just days before passed
a full-year extension that included a se-
ries of conservative policy prescriptions
unpalatable to Obama and congressional
Democrats.
Obama, Republicans and congressional
Democrats all said they preferred a one-
year extension but the politics of achiev-
ing that eluded them. All pledged to start
working on that in January.
"Has this place become so dysfunc-
tional that even when we agree to things
we can't do it?" Obama asked. "Enough is
enough."
The top Senate Republican, Mitch Mc-
Connell of Kentucky, was a driving force
behind Thursday's agreement, imploring
Boehner to accept the deal that McCon-
nell and Senate Democratic Leader Harry
Reid had struck last week and passed with
overwhelming support in both parties.


Wal-Mart pulls formula after baby dies


The Associated Press

COLUMBIA, Mo. -Wal-
Mart and health officials
awaited tests Thursday
on a batch of powdered
infant formula that was
removed from more than
3,000 stores nationwide
after a Missouri newborn
who consumed it died
from a rare infection.
The bacteria in question
occur naturally in the en-
vironment and in plants
such as wheat and rice.
But the most worrisome
appearances have been in
dried milk and powdered
formula, which is why
manufacturers routinely
test for the pathogens.
Wal-Mart pulled the En-
famil Newborn formula
from shelves as a precau-
tion following the death of
little Avery Cornett in the
southern Missouri town
of Lebanon.
The government has not
ordered a recall, and the
manufacturer said tests
showed the batch was
negative for the bacteria
before it was shipped. Ad-
ditional tests were under
way.
"We decided it was best
to remove the product
until we learn more,"
Wal-Mart spokeswom-
an Dianna Gee said. "It
could be returned to the
shelves."
Customers who bought
formula in 12.5-ounce
cans with the lot number
ZP1K7G have the option
of returning them for a
refund or exchange, Gee
said.
The product is not ex-
clusive to Wal-Mart. The
manufacturer, Mead
Johnson Nutrition, did
not immediately say how
widely distributed the
formula was among other
stores.
"We're highly confident
in the safety and qual-
ity of our products," said
Christopher Perille, a
spokesman for the com-
pany based in the Chica-
go suburb of Glenview.


A second Missouri in-
fant fell ill after consum-
ing powdered baby for-
mula in the last month,
but that child recovered,
state health officials said.
Powdered infant for-
mula is not sterile, and
experts have said there
are not adequate methods
to completely remove or
kill all bacteria that might
creep into formula before
or during production.
Preliminary hospital test
results indicate that Avery
died of a rare infection
caused by Cronobacter
sakazakii. The infection
can be treated with an-
tibiotics, but it's deemed
extremely dangerous
to babies less than one
month old and those born
premature.
The virus "is pervasive in
the environment," Perille
said. "There's a whole
range of potential sources
on how this infection may,
have got started."
Public health investiga-
tors will look at the for-
mula itself, as well as the
water used in preparing
it and at anything else the
baby might have ingested,
Perille said.
Such illnesses are rare.


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
This photo provided Thursday
by the Holman Howe Funeral
Home, shows Avery Cornett
of Lebanon, Mo., who died
Sunday.
Only two to three cases
a year are reported in in-
fants worldwide. New
Mexico saw two in 2008,
including one infant who
died and another who suf-
fered severe brain dam-
age. A Tennessee infant
died in 2001 after being
infected.
It could be several days
before test results are
finally available from
the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention
and the Food and Drug
Administration.

Amazing Grace


Cremation is finally gaining favor among Americans


I have yet to see a sign
on American highways
directing drivers to the
nearest crematorium.,But
such markers are com-
mon in Canada, Britain
and continental Europe,
where cremation has fast
become the favored way
to prepare for eternity.
By 2017, it is estimated
that half of all Americans
will opt for cremation over
traditional funeral and
burial. Already 41 percent
do up from 15 percent


25 years ago.
Cost is the leading fac-
tor in the
choice.
"* J Kevin Sack,

The New
York Times,
David estimates
YOuntt $1,600 as a
typical fee
' including
cremation, death notice,
death certificate and an
urn purchased online. By
contrast, the average


traditional funeral and
burial costs between
$10,000 and $16,000.
One-third of Americans
'who chose cremation last
year acknowledged that
cost was their primary
consideration, up from 19
percent in 1990.
The Times says that
burial in a family plot no
longer suits the conve-
nience of a mobile society,
and notes that memo-
rial services are easier to :,
schedule than funerals


and internments.
The Times adds that
"most mainstream reli-
gions have relaxed objec-
tions to cremation, which,
were tied to biblically
based views of the body
as a vessel for the soul and
of a heaven populated by
human forms."
Many Christian de-
nominations now actually
favor cremation, while the
Roman Catholic Church
raises no objection to
the practice. Orthodox


Judaism is the onlyno-
table sect to forbid it to its
members.
The Times noted that
the funeral industry is
compensating for lost rev-
enue with higher volume
and more services, such
as catered receptions and
ash pendants.
Funeral home direc-
tors are increasingly
performing cremations
themselves rather than
paying others to do them.
There are already 2,200


crematories across the na-
tion, and more on order.
A crematory is a $125,000
investment.
As a child, I was raised to
respect the human body
as the temple of the soul.
But many people of faith
now believe it is truer that,
as they age, their souls are
increasingly prisoners of
their bodies. For them,
cremation suggests resur-
rection and the liberation
of the soul, a'figure for
eternity.

Sounds of Christmas


Special to the Floridan

The Music and Worship
Division at The Baptist Col-
lege of Florida in Gracev-
ille ushered in the sounds
of Christmas at the annual
Christmas Festival of Music
performances held Dec. 2
and 3. Three highly antici-
pated performances were
well attended as musical
favorites for all ages were
performed and enjoyed.
The annual concert pro-
vided an uplifting celebra-
tion of the birth of Christ,
combined with classic
holiday favorites and even
a special 'visit from a par-
tridge in a pear tree. The
program -included solo
performances as well as
esteemed arrangements
by instrumentalists, the
guitar ensemble, women's
ensemble, male chorale,
college singers, college
winds and the combined
BCF College Choir.
The widely varied pre-
sentation of Christmas


music ranged from the
traditional symphonic
tunes and gospel, to the
very contemporary heart-
warming sounds of today's
Christmas classics. An un-
precedented presentation
of the Gloria, by Antonio
Vivaldi, featured BCF Voice
Professor Kimberle Moon,
BCF student soloists, the
college choir, and college
winds.
The annual event show-
cases talented students
from the BCF Music and
Worship Division and
throughout the college.
Performers delighted au-
diences with moving ren-
ditions of "0 Holy Night,"
"Mary, Did You Know?" "In
the First Light," and "Do-
mini Deus, Agnus Dei."
The program concluded
with the congregation
joining the college choir
and college winds to sing
a fun-filled collection of
carols.
For more information,
call 800-328-2660, ext. 427.

Extreme W'-i' --

Stranded Ariz. student, Texas family rescued


The Associated Press

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. A
college student, says she
had nothing to eat but two
candy bars while her car
was stuck in the snow for
nine days in a remote area
of Arizona.
Meanwhile, a Texas
family found themselves
struggling to breathe after
nearly two days in their
SUV after it was buried in
a snowdrift on a rural New
Mexico highway.
The frigid ordeals end-
ed with separate .rescues
Wednesday for Lauren
Weinberg and the Higgins
family. Authorities said
they were all recovering
after being taken to hospi-
tals.We'inberg was released
early Thursday.
"You can say survival
skills or a miracle, either
way," Phoenix police Of-
ficer James Holmes said of
Weinberg. "But the good
thing is she's home and
safe."
YvonneHigginsremained
in the hospital with pneu-
monia while her husband
David Higgins and his fa-
ther were on their way to
pick up the family's vehicle
after it was pulled by res-
cuers from the snowdrift.
The family plans to return
to Texas when his wife is
released from the hospi-
tal, though it was unclear
when that might be.
Weinberg, a 23-year-old
undergraduate at Arizona
State University, left' her.

became stuck a day later
in'the snowy mountains to
the north.
Weinberg was driving
around with no specific
destination when she trav-
eled 'south from Winslow
toward the Mogollon Rim
- a prominent line of cliffs
that divides the state's high
country from the desert,
Coconino County sheriff's
spokesman Gerry Blair
said. The area is frequent-
ed mostly by firewood
gatherers, hunters and lo-
cal ranchers.
After the paved road
turned into a dirt road,
Weinberg stopped at !a
fence line to move a .gate
and her vehicle got stuck
in the snow, Blair said.
Weinberg had two candy
bars and later told a dep-
uty that she put snow in
a water bottle and placed
it atop the sedan to melt.
She wasn't prepared for


the winter conditions and
did not have a heavy coat,
blankets or gloves.
Two U.S. Forest Service
employees on snowmo-
biles found her about 45
miles southeast ofWinslow
while they were checking
gates on forest roads.Work-
er Bob McDonald said he
called out to see if anyone
was around, the vehicle,
and Weinberg opened the
back door, looking sur-
prised and relieved.
"I am so thankful to be
alive and warm," Weinberg
said in a statement. "Thank
you everyone for your
thoughts and prayers, be-
cause they worked. There
were times I was afraid but
mostlyI had faith I would
be found."
Gary Strickland, who
was trailing McDonald
on a second snowmobile,
gave Weinberg his fleece
jacket and she consumed


a packaged lunch, bag of
chips and water they had
given her. Weinberg used
Strickland's cell phone to
call family, picking up on
a signal from a cell phone
tower on a private ranch
about a half-mile up the'
road.
Strickland said he could
see floor mats draped over
Weinberg's legs while she
sat in her car, which she
said still had gas.
"I could not'even begin
to predict how she could
(survive), but I have no
reason not to believe her
story," McDonald said. "As
a parent myself, missing a
child for nine days and not
knowing where they are, it
was extremely fortunate."
Other than being cold,
hungry and thirsty, Wein-
berg was in good condi-
tion, lucid and speaking
coherently, Blair said.
Weather forecasters and
authorities said her surviv-
al was remarkable as more
than 2 feet of snow fell in
the area and temperatures
plunged to near zero. Blair
said Weinberg had a cell-
phone but the battery was
dead..
In New Mexico, rescuers
had to dig through 4 feet
of ice and snow to free the
Higgins family, whose red
GMC Yukon got stuck on
U.S. 56 near Springer when
a blizzard moved through
the area Monday, state po-
lice said. Rescuers found

gins and their 5-year-old.

Wednesday.


Romney says no to Gingrich's debate challenge


The Associated Press

BETHLEHEM, N.H.
- Republican presiden-
tial candidate Mitt Rom-
ney on Thursday spurned
chief rival Newt Gingrich's
challenge for a one-on-
one debate ahead of the
Jan. 3 Iowa caucuses but
dismissed the notion
- suggested by .the for-
mer House speaker that
he's afraid to participate in
such a face-off..
"We've had many occa-
sions to debate together
and we'll have more, I pre-
sume quite a.few more, be-
fore this is finished," Rom-
ney told The Associated
Press. "But I'm not going to
narrow this down to a two-
person race while -there
are still, a number of other
candidates that are viable,
important candidates in
the race. I want to show re-
spect to them."
Gingrich has called on
Romney to condemn or
defend attack ads airing in
Iowa by groups friendly to.
the former Massachusetts
governor. Campaigning
Thursday in Virginia, Gin;
grich told reporters that
Romney's decision "tells
you a lot about Gov. Rom-


ney." Gingrich said he will
continue to say that Rom-
ney "doesn't mind hiding
out behind millions of dol-
lars of negative ads, but
he doesn't want to defend
them. The ads are false."
Gingrich said he doesn't
think Iowans will re-
ward "falsehoods by
millionaires."
In a, brief interview
aboard his campaign bus'
as it rumbled through New
Hampshire, Romney re-
flected on the GOP nomi-
.nation fight that's seen
many candidates and non-
candidates rise and fall in
the .polls. He mentioned
Gingrich, Minnesota. Rep.
Michele Bachmann, Atlan-
ta businessman Herman
Cain, Texas Gov. Rick Perry
and real estate magnate
Donald Trump.
Asked whether. Trump
and Gingrich were of equal
seriousness as presidential
aspirants, Romney said:
"I'm not going to get into
that. It's up to you to make
your own assessment."
Romney also distanced
himself anew from the
standoff inWashington be-
tween the GOP-controlled
House and the Democrat-
ic-run White House over a

two-month extension of a
cut in payroll taxes.
"I really don't think it's
productive for me to de-
scribe which of all of the
compromises within the
sausage-making process
is my favorite compromise
position," Roimney said,
adding that presidential
candidates getting, in-
volved will only complicate
the process, not help it.
"We have, what, eight
people running for presi-
dent?" Romney said. "The
idea of us all running to
Washington and trying to
say to the various parties,


'Here's where I think you
should go,' is not some-
thing which our party
needs. It is not likely to be
conducive to reaching a
conclusion."
For weeks, Romney has
refused to be pinned down
,on .how Congress should
break an impasse that
threatens to raise taxes for
160 million-workers the
latest pressing policy de-
bate he has sidestepped.
Gingrich has condemned
the notion of a two-month'
extension and suggested
that Senate Republicans
should have rejected it.

Fewest layoffs



since 2008


The Associated Press

WASHINGTON The
job market is getting
healthier, adding to evi-
dence that the economy
is improving as 2011 nears
an end.
The number of people
seeking unemployment
benefits fell last week to
its lowest level since April
2008, the government
said. The report suggest-
ed that layoffs are slowing
further and that employ-
ers may be ready to hire
more aggressively in the
new year.
A gauge of future eco-
nomic activity also rose
sharply last month. And
the economy is thought
to be growing in the cur-
rent quarter much. faster
than the 1.8 percent an-
nual rate that the govern-
ment now estimates for
last summer.
"The economy is car-
rying some clear mo-
mentum into 2012," said
economist Joel Naroff of
Naroff Economic Advi-
sors. "The consistent de-
cline in the weekly lines
at the unemployment of-
fices is pointing to a firm-
ing in the labor markets,
fewer layoffs, more jobs
being added and most
importantly, a decline in
the unemployment rate."
, First-time applications
for unemployment ben-
efits last week fell 4,000
to a seasonally adjusted
364,000, the Labor De-
partment said Thursday.


It was the third straight
weekly drop. The four-
week moving average, a
less volatile gauge, fell for
the 11th time in 13 weeks:
At 380,250, it's the lowest
since June 2008.
Unemployment appli-
cations reflect the pace
of layoffs. Job cuts. have
fallen sharply since the
recession, though many
employers have been slow
to hire more freely.
The steady decline in
applications shows that
the economy is now im-
proving consistently, 2/2
years- after the Great Re-
cession ended. And it may
herald a further decline in
the unemployment rate.
The rate, which had
hovered near 9 percent
since the end of the re-
cession, fell sharply in
November from 9 percent
to 8.6 percent. The nation
has added at least 100,000
net jobs each month from
July through November,
the first such five-month
streak since 2006.
"When you fire fewer
people, hiring unques-
tionably follows," said.
Dan Greenhaus, chief
global strategist at BTIG
LLC.
The Conference Board's
index of leading econom-
ic indicators rose strongly
in November for the sec-
ond straight month. The
economy is gaining mo-
mentum, and the risks of
a recession are receding,
economists with the busi-
ness research group said.

Smart Money


Small businesses can be hard to sell


Dear Bruce: We are a 68-year-old
couple, both in good health and
receiving SSI retirement of $1,800
per month. We have 85- to 90-year-
old genetics going for us both. We
are renters with very few other
liabilities (approximately $1,500
in living expenses and credit card
debt, which is almost paid off). We
own a drapery cleaning company
free and clear that does approxi-
mately $110,000 gross business
with 65 percent to 70 percent profit,
working six to eight days a month.
We have very small savings and no
life insurance. I dropped it before I
started this company in 1999 due to
financial issues.
In your estimation, what is the
resale value of the company? The
company is in my wife's name, al-
though I oversee all operations and
internal affairs. We would appreci-
ate any advice and/or direction you
can offer.
J.W, VIA EMAIL

Dear J.W.: You ask an interesting


question for which I have no way of
determining an answer. You men-'
tioned that you have
this dry cleaning
company that does
j- very well given the
amount of effort you
put into it, making
Bruce $65,000 to $70,000
Williams a year. The problem
is, this appears to
be all you have. The
difficulty in selling a small busi-
ness like yours is that most of the
potential buyers have no money,
which means you will have to
finance a good chunk of the sales
value. I can't imagine most lend-
ers being interested in this kind of
credit environment. Further, selling
a small company.in a hurry is often
impossible.
You might want to consider ask-
ing your employees if one of them
would like to buy you out over a
fixed period of years. Theywould
have time to save a significant
amount for a down payment, and


you would have to carry the paper
for the rest.
In the meantime, you ought to
be socking away everything you
can for the next few years with this
income. For whatever reason, until
now you've been unable to save
anything. While your Social Secu-
rity will be helpful and consistent,
even if you collect the maximum
of $25,000 to $30,000 a year, you
will certainly have a difficult time
maintaining your lifestyle, given
that your rental alone would pretty
much cancel out the Social Security
income. You might want to put a
little more effort into this enter-
prise, providing some extra money
for investment. Unless there's
something you've neglected to tell
me, your retirement years will be
very lean. .

Successful Business


Fairness and the Internet sales tax


A mazon supports "an even-
handed federal framework,
'L Xfor state sales tax collection."
Paul Misener, Amazon Vice
President for Global Public Policy
Generally, I try to steer away from
political issues and, for that reason,
I do not think I have ever written a
column about taxation. However,
I have reached my boiling point
over the issue of imposing a tax on
Internet sales.
Let me begin by saying that I do
not like to pay taxes and wish the
government could manage our
money better. I have never rec-
ommended a ,tax increase before,
but I am an advocate for a tax on
Internet sales. Now I am not argu-
ing that this is a necessary source of
revenue which it is but rather, -
I am suggesting that levying a tax
on Internet sales from out-of-state
merchants can help level the play-
ing field for small businesses.
Small businesses are the heart
and soul of our country retail-
ers, in particular. Retailers have to
compete with Internet companies
-in so many ways and they just can-
not compete effectively if they are
working with one hand tied behind


their back. *
By exempting out-of-state sellers
from having to col-
lect sales tax, you are
Giving these non-
resident merchants a
six to seven percent
cost advantage. Now
Dr. Jerry the government in
Osteryoung Florida wants resi-
dents to voluntarily
send the state taxes
earned on Internet sales. You can
guess how well that has worked
out. Additionally, merchants who
reside in Florida still have to pay
sales taxes to residents on all goods
soldyia the Internet;
State governments should impose
.a tax on Internet sales of non-resi-
dent companies. California now
collects taxes on large, out-of-state
Internet providers and is expected
to pull in over $300 million dollars
in additional revenues. Seven other
states have also closed the loophole
and now collect sales tax from all
Internet merchants serving their
states.
The National Governors Asso-
ciation estimates that states are
currently missing out on more than


$22 billion each year in potential
Internet sales tax revenue. Both the
House and Senate have introduced
bills to remedy this,
.We need to do everything we can
to promote small business retailers,
especially since they do not have
the luxury of being able to-hire lob-
byists to protect their interests like
large retailers can. Imposing a tax
on out-of-state Internet merchants
will not give local small businesses
an advantage but will just allow
them to compete on a fairer playing
field.
What can you do? Please write.
your state representatives and
senators as well as their U.S.
counterparts and request, not that
they impose a new tax, but that
they level the playing field between
Internet businesses and small
business retailers. We need small
businesses to flourish in order for
local economies to do well!
You can do this!

ship in the College of Business at Florida State
University, the Jim Moran Professor of Entrepre-
neurship; and Professor of Finance.


around $50 off the utility
bill over the bulb's life- *
time. LEDs can save more
than twice that, but they
have a much higher initial
cost. An Energy Star LED
or CFL costs, on average,
about $1 a year to power,,,
whereas a halogen bulb
costs around $3.50 and
a traditional incandes-
cent bulb costs almost
$5, according to the
Department of Energy.
On the downside, while
the prices of LEDs are
dropping, the bulbs are
expensive and many have
a payback period of two
years or longer.
. Haldgen bulbs use
about 25 to 30 percent
less energy than, standard
incandescents, but they
cost more and many don't
last much longer. Benefits
of halogen bulbs include

light, fully dimmable
functionality and more
accurate color rendering.
In comparison, LEDs also
instantly brighten and

latest light bulb

common questions con-

(CFLs), light-emitting
diodes, (LEDs), halogens
and incandescent bulbs.
CR's tests revealed
both pros and cons to all
types of bulbs and found
that while CFLs have,

equivalent CFLs might
not be quite as bright over
their lives as the incan-

However, some Energy

equivalents are as bright
as regular incandescents,
use about 75 percent less

One of the concerns
(with LEDs is whether or
not they contain toxins.
Semiconductor chips'
and electronic circuitry
in LEDs can include lead,
arsenic and gallium, but
those substances aren't '
accessible, even if the
bulb breaks. LEDs should
be recycled with other
electronic waste, while
used CFLs, which contain
a small amount of mer-
cury, can be taken Lowe's
or Ikea for recycling.

Incorrect use of an
energy-saving bulb can
affect its performance,
and shorten its life. CR
recommends that con-

for proper use and con-

Floridan Correspondent

The Marianna High School
Lady Bulldogs soccer team came
up short of a win on the score-
board but picked up a moral vic-
toryTuesdaynight with a2-0 loss
to Bozeman at Bulldog Field.
The defense did a stellar job of
blocking shots, stopping runs,
and keeping the ball away from
their forwards. At the half, it was
a 1-0 lead for Bozeman. Late in
the second half, Bozeman scored
their second and final goal of the
night.
Even with the loss, Coach David
Castleberry saw improvement
with his team, "The girls did
great tonight, they hustled, never
gave up, and came close. That's
all you can ask, keep getting bet-
ter and hope that mid-January is
the time when we peak. Desiree
(DeClouet) took over in relief of
Mallory (Dean) ,in the second
half and did a great job for us,"
he continued 'Our forwards had
some shots, just couldn't quite
find the goal, but they took more
shots than in the last game. and
that's what we're looking for. If
we keep taking shots, some of
them are going to fall in the right
place."
On the night Dean recorded
12 saves on 17 attempts with one
goal scored and three missed
shots. DeClouet had 9 saves on
11 attempts with one g6al scored
and one missed shot.'
The Lady Bulldogs will return
to the field on January 9 at home
against Franklin County. Game
time is 4 p.m.

Manning


to stay


with Colts
The Associated Press
INDIANAPOLIS Colts owner
Jim Irsay says if Peyton Manning
plays football next season, it will
be in Indianapolis.
Irsay was interviewed on NFL
Network before Thursday night's
kickoff between Houston and
Indianapolis, a game that could
be Manning's last at Lucas Oil
Stadium.
Irsay says Manning is progress-
ing from his neck injury, that his
throwing arm is getting stronger
and that his greatest concern is
Manning's overall health. But if
Manning can play in 2012, Irsay
says he will not try to slash costs
by getting rid of the league's four-
time MVP.
Irsay says the Colts would take
Manning's successor in April's
NFL draft if the right quarterback
is available. Ihdy is the front-run-
ner for the No. 1 overall pick.


Patriots and Dolphins still have plenty to play for


The Associated Press
FOXBOROUGH, Mass.- The
New England Patriots are in the
playoffs for the ninth time in
11 years. The Miami Dolphins
missed them for the ninth time
in 10. -,
Both, though, have a lot at
stake on Saturday with the Pa-
triots going for a first-round bye
and many Dolphinis playing for
jobs next season.
And both have the same ap-
proach to moving toward those
goals. Forget about them.
"Right now, all we're worried
about is Miami," Patriots coach
Bill Belichick told reporters. "All
the rest of it is just something
for you guys to write about."
Todd Bowles, a head coach for
just one NFL game compared
with Belichick's 291, isn't fo-
cused on what a victory would
mean for his future in that
position.
"I don't have any expectations,
really," he said. "I'm just trying
to get the guys to play hard and
play better and play fast and try
to come out with wins. I don't
control those decisions."
The Patriots (11-3) clinched
their third straight AFC East title
last Sunday with a 41-23 win at


the Denver Broncos. There are
several ways for them to secure
a bye this week, the easiest be-
ing a victory combined with a
loss or tie by the Houston Tex-
ans. They even can clinch the
top seed in the AFC and home-
field advantage throughout the
conference playoffs if they win
and Houston, Pittsburgh and
Baltimore all lose or tie.
"I don't think we think about
any of those things other than
Miami," quarterback Tom Brady
said. "We prepare hard, focus
on what we can focus on, con-
trol what we can control, go out
there and play with great effort,
good execution and we'll be in
good position."
The Dolphins (5-9) will fo-
cus on stopping Brady. They
couldn't do it in their season-
opening 38-24 loss in Miami in
which Brady threw for a fran-
chise record 517 yards. Bowles,
who led the Dolphins to a 30-23
win over the Buffalo Bills last
Sunday after replacing the fired
Tony Sparano, was the second-
ary coach then.
"It was the toughest game for
me as a coach," Bowles said.

numbers every day. Nothing

ed everything. You write it off as
a bad loss."
But he remained confident
and the secondaryhas improved
considerably since then.
"I just think it was a bad
game," he said. "You just write it
off and move on next week."
The Patriots also have a dan-


gerous offensive threat to han-
dle. Reggie Bush rushed for a
career-high 203 yards against
Buffalo last Sunday, the same
day New England allowed 167
yards rushing in the first quar-
ter alone.
In their last two games, the Pa-
triots have been burned for a to-
tal of 422 yards on the ground. L

Chasing greatness


Babin putting himself in an elite category with each sack


The Associated Press

The Philadelphia Eagles defensive end
has 18 sacks after getting six in the past
two games. He's three shy of tying Reggie
White's team record and five away'.from
breaking Michael Strahan's NFL record.
White, a Hall of Famer, got 21 sacks in
12 games in 1987. Babin needs one more
sack to tie Clyde Simmons for second
most in club history. White and Simmons
were part of Buddy Ryan's famed defens-
es in the late 1980s, and were among the
best players at their position for. years.
Babin knows he's got a long way to go be-
fore he catches up.
"First of all, it doesn't even compare,"
Babin said. "It wouldn't matter if I got
close or not. Those guys are on a whole
other level than myself. Have you watched
the tape? They're like men among boys.
It's awesome to watch them. There won't
be any other guys like that probably ever
again. All I want to do is do whatever I can
do to help this team win. If that's getting
sacks, then that will do it."
Babin played for the Eagles in 2009, and
had 2 1/2 sacks in 12 games. He signed
with Tennessee in free agency and had a
career-best 12 1/2 sacks while earning his
first trip to the Pro Bowl. He rejoined the
Eagles last July, signing a five-year, $28
million contract..
Despite his sack totals, Babin has been
criticized for his performance against the
fun. Some say he wouldn't get as many
sacks if the Eagles played a regular defense
as opposed to the wide-nine scheme they
often employ, which suits pass rushers.
"I don't come to the game saying this is
.what I'm going to do," he said. "I'm go-
ing to come in saying I'm going to do ex-
actly what we practiced, I'm going to go
as hard as I can and whatever happens,
happens."

ANOTHER REGGIE:
Reggie Bush is tackling the role of TV
host.
The Miami Dolphins running' back will
co-host "Live! With Kelly" on Monday,
Jan. 9. Bush will join Kelly Ripa and guests
Mark Wahlberg, Tori Spelling and Dean
McDermott.
"They asked me if I wanted to do it.
I felt like why not?" Bush said. "Maybe
post-career I can get into TV and hosting,
something like that. We'll see. I've always
been a fan of the Regis and Kelly show, so
I felt like this was a great opportunity to
go out and kind of step outside the box."


Sports celebrities will co-host the show
throughout that week. Also scheduled
are Carl Edwards, Boomer Esiason, Jesse
Palmer and Apolo Anton Ohno.
Bush is coming off the biggest game of
his career. He rushed for 203 yards Sun-
day to help the Dolphins beat Buffalo,
and on Thursday he was chosen AFC of-
fensive player of the week.
Bush appeared as a guest on "Live! With
Regis and Kelly'.' in February 2010 after he
helped the New Orleans Saints win the
Super Bowl.

PONDER'S UPS AND DOWNS:
Minnesota Vikings quarterback Chris-
tian Ponder has gone through some of
the ups and downs that are expected
of a rookie quarterback, especially one
who didn't have an offseason to get
acclimated.
One of the biggest lessons he has to
learn, Ponder said, is navigating the highs
and lows and not letting them affect how
he approaches each game. That's what
happened last weekend in a 42-20 loss to
the New Orleans Saints.
Ponder entered that game having
thrown five interceptions in the previ-
ous two weeks. ,So he overcompensated
for that by playing too careful against the
Saints, and it cost him.
"This past game I think I became a little
too conservative and threw some balls
away and didn't try to make plays," Pon-
der said. "I think by the time we started
playing better and throwing the ball bet-
ter in the fourth quarter it was too late."
Ponder was 14 for 31 for 120 yards with
two touchdowns, with most of those
numbers coming in the fourth quarter
with the outcome already decided. He
also threw another interception, but that
was on a last-second heave into the end
zone.
"I didn't complete too many balls, didn't
have any big plays," Ponder said. "That
wasn't a good game for me personally
and for our team. ... For me personally,
that wasn't me. I can't play not to lose, I've
got to play to win."
By the middle of the third quarter, the
Vikings had zero net yards of passing
against the Saints, thanks to four sacks
by a New Orleans defensive line that had
Ponder running for his life on most pass-
ing plays. There is no question the 12th
overall draft pick has taken a step back in
his last three games, but coach Leslie Fra-
zier said there is no reason to panicd.
"With Christian, like so many young

quarterbacks, you don't want to base your
judgment on one or two games," Frazier
said. "Give him a chance to have an offsea-
son to get with our coaches in OTAs that
are going to help him. I think it's a little bit
too early to panic about Christian."

T-SHIRTS FOR TEXANS:
Texans outside linebacker Connor
Barwin handed out dark-blue shirts to
his teammates. sporting the motto that
they've adopted for their revived defense.
"Bulls oh Parade."
The Texans'(10-4) ranked second in to-
tal defense (277.9, yards per game) head-
ing into Thursday night's game against
Indianapolis (1-13). They've ranked first
much of the year, guided by first-year de-
fensive coordinator Wade Phillips.
Barwin led the team with 10/2 sacks
through' 14 games. He ordered the T-
shirts, and they arrived in the locker room
Tuesday.
"Everybody's always making T-shirts for
everything, so I thought we'd make one
for the defense," Barwin said. "This has
kind of taken off."
Not everyone liked the idea initially.
SLinebacker Brian Cushing, Houston's
leading tackler, thought the Texans need-
edto establish more of a tradition of strong
defense before adopting a nickname.
"If you're going to be a good defense for
hopefully years to come, you don't want
to just kind of do whatever you do," Cush-
ing said. "It's something that will stick
with us for a while, so we have to really
get the name we want."
But when Barwin asked how many
shirts Cushing wanted on Tuesday, Cush-
ing asked for two.
"We had a little glitch with Cush for like


a week," Barwin said. "But he's on board
now, Everyone's liking it, it's fine."

HAPPY RETURNS:
The Bengals knew firsthand that Bran-
don Tate was a dangerous returned.
New England's third-round pick from
2009 returned a kickoff 97 yards for a
touchdown against Cincinnati last sea-
son, a moment that stuck in the Bengals'
minds. When they saw him on waivers be-
fore the start of the season, they claimed
him.
Good move.
Tate returned a punt 56 yards to set up
the go-ahead touchdown Sunday during
a 20-13 win at St. Louis. He also set a team
record with 496 yards on punt returns for
the season.
"I didn't even know that," Tate said.
"That's confidence for me to keep do-
ing what I'm doing, hitting it and keep
going!'
He ranks third in the league in punt re-
turn yards, behind Arizona's Patrick Pe-
terson (636) and Houston's Jacoby Jones
(502). He also has 37 kickoff returns for'
886 yards.
It hasn't been all smooth. He struggled
initially, appearing indecisive when he
got the ball. Coach Marvin Lewis initially
decided to be patient with Tate, figuring
he would get better as he got more com-
fortable with his new team. Lewis then
decided to let Adam "Pacman" Jones start

the season.
Jones ran back his first punt 63 yards
and pulled a hamstring on the play, let-
ting the job revert to Tate.
"We've got two more games left, so
we've just got to keep it going," Tate said.


Succop just doesn't miss


The Associated Press

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -
One of the very last entries
under Ryan Succop's biog-
raphy in the Kansas City
Chiefs' media guide, under
the section marked "Per-
sonal," is the pronuncia-
tion of his last name.
"Full name: Ryan ,Bar-
row Succop (pronounced
SUCK-UP)"
It's aname that could lend
itself to snickers, punchy
headlines or flat-out ridi-
cule, assuming he ever
missed a kick. But the truth
is that Succop is banging
the football through the
uprights with record-set-
ting dependability.
The third-year kicker has
made 21 consecutive field
goals for. the Chiefs, the
longest active streak in the
NFL. With one more Sat-
urday against Oakland, he
will tie Pete Stoyanovich
for the franchise, record
putting such company.
behind him as Hall of Fam-
er Jan Stenerud; Nick Low-
ery and Morten Anderson;
the NFL's all-time .leading
scorer.
"I don't necessarily think
about all the records or
anything like that," Succop
said. "Hopefully I'll be able
to go out and make the next
one, and if we do that, we'll
kick the one after that."
Succop has been the one
constant in a season of up-
heaval in Kansas City.
The Chiefs have gone
from doormats to the top
of the AFC West, and then
all the way down to the
bottom again. They've fired
their coach, lost a handful
of stars to season-end-
ing injuries, and now find
themselves in a position
to possibly squeak into
the playoffs as the division
champions.
I That certainly wouldn't

have been possible if not
for their kicker.
Given the nickname "Mr.
Irrelevant" after he was the
256th and final selection in
the 2009 draft -- all things
considered, not the worst
nickname he could have -
Succop knocked through
all four of his attempts
last Sunday against Green
Bay. Kansas City wound up
beating the previously un-
beaten Packers 19-14, and
Succop was voted the AFC
special teams player of the
week.Succop has bailed
out- Kansas City at other
times this season.
After starting off 2 for 5,
he hit all five tries in a 22-
17 win over Minnesota in
Week 4. One of them was a
career-best 54-yarder, and
the total matched Stenerud
and Lowery for the single-
game franchise record.
Succop also hit from 30
yards in overtime to beat


Sari Diego on Halloween
night.
- The former South Caro-
lina star said he got off to
a rough start this season
because he was rushing
himself, and in a position
so fickle an inch here, an
inch there, and a kick could
sail wide of the uprights
- anything that affects the
timing can have disastrous
consequences.
"I do know one thing,
mechanically I've slowed
down a little bit," Succop
said. "It's not a'big differ-
ence, it's a small differ-
ence, but it makes a big
difference."
Succop doesn't have the
strongest leg in the league,
and it's unlikely he'll ever
boot a 63-yarder like the
Raiders' Sebastian Jan-
ikowski did earlier this year.
But he is making a push for
the claim that he's the most
accurate.


Packers home field hopes


The Associated Press

GREEN BAY, Wis. Now
that it's gone, Green Bay
Packers players admit
they are disappointed they
aren't in position to pull off
a perfect season. And they
don't seem to put much
stock in the theory that a
well-timed loss can help
a good team focus going
into the playoffs.
Still, there's home-field
advantage at stake and,
ultimately, a Super Bowl
left to shoot for giving
the Packers plenty .to play
for going into their game
Sunday night against
NFC North rival Chicago
at Lambeau Field.
"Yeah, it's disappoint-
ing, but at the same time,
it's not end-all, be-all,"
safety Charlie Peprah
said. "We're still 13-1, still
control our own destiny as
far as getting home field.
That's what, really, we're
focused on. Feeling sorry
for ourselves, we let that
go already. Everybody's
back and focused."
"They're back at it," Mc-
Carthy said. "It's business
as usual but a little more,
I don't want to say quiet,
(but) focused."
More focused? Perhaps,
but Aaron Rodgers isn't
convinced the loss Sun-
day at Kansas City will
somehow be helpful.
"A loss is not a good
loss," Rodgers said. "I
don't know what that
means. To the outside
world, people will proba-
bly think it takes pressure
off of us and we don't have
to talk about 'undefeated'
and that stuff. But I like
the challenge of people
talking about us and pull-
ing for us to get beat and
thinking we're not going
to be able to accomplish
something. That's kind


of what made us great the
last two years."
And Rodgers didn't want
to hear anything about
how the Chiefs' formula
for winning controlling
the clock on offense while
pressing receivers and
pressuring Rodgers on
defense provided some
sort of undiscovered blue-
print that might help other
teams beat the Packers."I
think it's baloney," Rod-
gers said. "They have a
blueprint for winning any
game. If you control the
football, you don't turn the


ball over and you can shut
the other team down on
third down and hold them
to 14 points, you should
win the game.
"Other teams have
played similar styles of
coverages and ideas of
rushing four and dropping
seven or rushing three and
dropping or playing man
with two high safeties and
we beat those teams. We
just didn't execute well,
they did. They controlled
the football, and they
didn't turn it over to our
defense."

NBA schedule offers



plenty of imbalance


The Associated Press

Carmelo Anthony's return to Denver is
delayed for another year. LeBron James
and Dwyane Wade won't be visiting Sac-
ramento anytime soon. Fans in Chicago
will only be seeing Kobe Bryant on tele-
vision this season,
The NBA sought competitive balance.
What it got was schedule imbalance.
One of the many consequences of the
lockout, besides hundreds of lost games
and hundreds of millions of lost dollars,
was the tradition that every team plays
in every NBA city at least once per sea-
son. That's not the case this year.
.While teams will visit every other team
in their own conference, they will only
make trips to play nine clubs from the
other side of the league instead of the
usual 15.
It's one of many quirks of a 66-game
schedule that, in a variety of ways, is not
like any other in NBA history.
"In some cases, the team business-
type might complain that they didn't get
(to host) the Heat or the Lakers," NBA
Commissioner David Stern said. "While
in the background, the coach is doing
cartwheels. So it's kind of an interesting
dynamic."
There's no shortage of those.
Reigning scoring king Kevin Durant,
dropped 66 points in New York earlier
this year alas, at Rucker Park, the fa-
bled outdoor court and not Madison
Square Garden. He and Oklahoma City
won't be going to play the Knicks this
season.
The NBA champion Dallas Mavericks
won't be going to Charlotte, nor will
Durant's Thunder, Bryant's Lakers or
the Spurs, and that will keep ticket dol-
lars from finding Bobcats owner Michael
Jordan's pockets.
Teams won't be playing the same num-
ber of divisional games, so get ready for
complaining should tiebreakers come
into playwhen determiningplayoff seed-
ing. And many small market teams will
be miss out on some guaranteed sellouts
against some elite clubs that might hurt
in the standings but help with the bot-
tom line.
"That's what happens when you have a
lockout," Durant said.
When Magic coach Stan Van Gundy
heard the league was putting together
a 66-game slate instead of the usual 82-
game run, he figured the breakdown was
simple: Play every team in your division
four times, then face every other team
home and away.
That seemed easy enough.
Instead, it's complicated.
"I'm not being critical of it," Van Gundy
said. "They've got a short period of time


to play 66 games and there were a lot of
factors they had to consider and I'm sure
that they did it the best way that they
could."
True, but there is some zaniness.
Atlanta takes a trip that has the Hawks
going north, then south, then north,
then west, then east, then west and then
home again, all in the span of nine days.
Cleveland has a nine-game February
homestand. .San Antonio goes nearly
four weeks without a home game. The
Kings close the first half of their sched-
ule with 20 of 28 away from Sacramento,
daunting for a team desperate to keep
fans engaged while trying to get a new
arena. Denver plays nine in a row at
home in one stretch, then immediately
hits the road for seven straight.
But there's no Anthony homecoming
in Denver.
"Did it bother me? Not really," said
Anthony, now with the Knicks. "I mean,
I would love to go back and play there.
The reaction I would get, who knows? I
might get some boos, I might get some
claps, but it'd have been fun."
Minnesota coach Rick Adelman was
thrilled to see his club opens with six of
seven at home. And then he looked who
those early opponents are the first
four clubs to visit the Timberwolves are
Oklahoma City, Miami, Dallas and San
Antonio.
"It's a challenge for us," Adelman said.
"If we come out and we're ready to go,
and we can knock some of these people
off, it's just going to be better for us."'
. The Wolves don't host Atlanta, Milwau-
kee, New Jersey, Orlando, Toronto and
Washington, teams that perhaps don't
inspire the casual fan to run down on
game night to check them out, but could
be winnable games. They also don't
travel to Boston, Chicago, Miami or New
York. From a competitive standpoint, not
having to play those teams on the road is
great for the Wolves. But from a player
experience standpoint, the Wolves don't
sound thrilled.
"I think we don't go to Miami and Chi-
cago. ... That's a little sad," eagerly antici-
pated guard Ricky Rubio said.
With this kind of schedule, youth might
be served. Washington is expected to
open the year with 10 players on the team
age 25 or younger. So on those back-to-
back-to-back nights, the Wizards might
have a touch more spring in their collec-
tive step than some other clubs.
"It reminds me of an AAU season -
playing five games in one day," Wizards
guard John Wall said. "It can be tough at
times, but I think it can help us."
In past years, playing four games in five
nights would be considered the worst of
the schedule grind.

game in Los Angeles.


Kobe day-to-day with



torn wrist ligaments


The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES Kobe
Bryant did not play in the
Los Angeles Lakers' pre-
season finale against the
Clippers on Wednesday
night because of a torn
ligament in his right wrist,
and his status for the sea-
son opener on Christmas
Day is up in the air.
A MRI revealed. the ex-
tent of the injury, which
occurred early in the in the
third quarter of the Lakers'
114-95 loss to the Clippers
on Monday night. Bry-
ant was examined by Dr.
Steven Shin of the Kerlan-
Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic.
Depending on the degree
of the tear, he could be
sidelined as long as three
to four weeks.
"He's day-to-day. As
soon as I figure it out, I
will let you guys know,"
said coach Mike Brown,
who took over this sea-
son after the retirement
of Phil Jackson. "The
doctor has to clear him.
Guys will go through the


year and get hurt, obvi-
ously. Sometimes they'll
get hurt and can't play,
sometimes they'll get hurt
and still can play. It just
depends on the situation.
Come Sunday, we'll see
how it is. There's a chance,
though, that he could play
Sunday."
Bryant, who shoots
right-handed, was sent
crashing to the floor by
Clippers center DeAndre
Jordan on a blocked la-
yup and came up hold-
ing the wrist. He stayed
in the game for another 3
minutes, then went to the
bench for a good stretch
and was allowed to return
tp the floor during the
fourth quarter.
"I knew he landed on his
wrist, but I was not aware
that he was in significant
pain," Brown said. "He
did not tell me he was in
pain, nor did our trainer
(Gary Vitti) tell me he was
in pain."
Bryant practiced Tues-
day, but did not participate
in Wednesday morning's


shootaround. He did not
talk to the media before
*the game and camped out
in the trainer's room.
After Monday's game,
when asked about .the
wrist, Bryant said it wasn't
a problem. Brown's un-
derstanding was that his
best player did not need
surgery. Last season, Bry-
ant played in all 82 games
for the fourth time in his
career. And with this sea-
son reduced to 66 games
because of the 149-day
lockout, every game with-
out him is a bigger deal.
But the NBA's sixth all-
time leading scorer con-
tinually has demonstrated
his ability to play through
pain at a high level.
"He came up to me in
practice yesterday and
said: 'My wrist is a little
sore, but I'm good to go,'"
Brown said. "And when it
got to competitive stuff,
where it was 5-on-5, he
scored runners over de-
fenders with his left hand.
So he was playing a game
within himself, I guess."


Golf


Miyazato's money title in Europe needs asterisk


The Associated Press

ORLANDO, Fla. If ever an award in golf needed an
asterisk, it would be for Ai Miyazato winning the Ladies
European Tour money list.
She played in only two tournaments both part of
the LPGA Tour schedule winning the Evian Masters
and missing the cut at the Women's British Open. Be-
cause the Evian Masters purse dwarfs everything else on
the LET, the Japanese star earned $487,500, which easily
beat out Melissa Reid and Carolina Hedwall.
Reid won twice in 19 starts on the European tour, while
Hedwall won four times in her 20 tournaments.
".To be honest I have mixed feelings because I'm re-
ceiving the award from just winning one event on the
LET," Miyazato said. "But I've never won the money title
on any tour, so I'm really happy."
The LET does not require a minimum number of tour-
naments to be a member, and that's where it gets really
curious.
Yani Tseng chose not to become an LET member this
year, or she would have easily won the mbney title.
Tseng, the No. 1 player in women's golf, won four of the'
five tournaments she played on the European schedule.
Tseng won the Women's Australian Open and the Aus-
tralian Masters to start the year. She captured her sec-
ond straight Women's British Open at Carnoustie, and
then won a fourth LET event at the Suzhou Taihu La-
dies Open in China. Had she been an LET member, she
would have won the money title by about $160,000.
Tseng won the LPGA Tour money list with $2.9 million,
more than the next two players behind her.
Ernie Huang, her agent in California, said Tseng was
automatically eligible to become an LET member when
she won the Women's British Open last year.
"She elected not to be a member," he said. "Somehow,
she feels she doesn't want to be a member there. Maybe
down the road she will."
Luke Donald became the first male to win the money
title on the European and American fours in the same
season, though both tours require a minimum num-
ber of starts 15 for the PGA Tour, 13 for the European
Tour.
If not for the minimum requirement in Europe, Tiger
Woods would have won its money list five times.
That the LET does not require a minimum for its mem-
bers makes the money title somewhat of a farce. Making
it worse is that the Evian Masters purse, along with the
Women's British Open purse, is significantly higher than
everything else.
The money Hedwall earned for her four victories
would not even be the equivalent of third-place money


from the Evian Masters.
"It's a shame it works like that because you should
have to play a certain amount of events to be on this,"
Laura Davies said before the season-ending Dubai La-
dies Championship. "I know Ai has only 'played two
events, and she is going to win the money list. But it's a
bit ridiculous. If one of the regular European tour play-
ers wins it and plays 20 events, 15 events, then it has
more behind it.
"But it's just a shame that one tournament can domi-
nate the money list like that."
The LPGATour does not count the U.S. Women's Open
- its biggest event toward the money list for non-
members because the prize money is so skewed. That's
why Stacy Lewis did not automatically earn her card
when she tied for third at the 2008 U.S. Women's Open.
There is no greater disparity in prize money than on
the LET.
The schedule released Tuesday has 15 regular LET
events with combined prize money of just over $6 mil-
lion. Three other tournaments that are co-sanctioned
by the LPGA Tour the Women's Australian Open, the
Evian Masters and the Women's British Open have a
combined purse of nearly $7 million.,
DONALD AWARD:
Luke Donald made it a hat trick of awards Tuesday
when he won the Golf Writers Trophy from the British-
based Association of Golf Writers. Donald previously
was named European Tour golfer of the year and PGA
Tour player of the year.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
USC quarterback Matt Barkley
celebrates a 31-17 victory over
Notre Dame, in South Bend.


BarkiMey


returning


for senior


season at






LOS ANGELES South-
ern California quarterback
SMatt Barkley has decided
to return for his senior sea-
son and put off the NFL for
another year.
With USC coach Lane
Kiffin and his family in
attendance, Barkley an-
nounced Thursday that
while he feels prepared for
Sthe NFL, he has unfinished
business with the Trojans.
SHis announcement set off
cheers from the roughly
200 people who attended
his news conference at
USC's Heritage Hall.
"I am staying so I can fin-
ish what I started," Barkley
said.
Barkley is coming off
a spectacular season in
'which he led the Trojans to
a 10-2 finish and the No. 5
ranking in the country. Be-
cause of NCAA sanctions,
USC was not allowed to
play in the postseason.
The 6-foot-2, 220-pound
quarterback has been pro-
jected as a first-round pick
in the NFL draft, in the top
10 overall on some boards.
Barkley was the latest in
a heralded lineup of USC
quarterbacks that's includ-
ed Carson Palmer, Matt
Leinart and Mark Sanchez.
Barkley had an uneven
first season with the Tro-


jans, making some ques-
tionable decisions that led
to 14 interceptions. Still, he
threw for over 2,700 yards
and 15 touchdowns to be-
come the only freshman
semifinalist for the Davey
O'Brien Award as the na-
tion's best quarterback.
Barkley developed into
a ,mature leader by his
sophomore season, again
throwing for over 2,700
yards, with 26 TDs, a com-
pletion'rate of 62 percent
and 12 interceptions. He
also handled questions
about USC's sanctions,
with poise, never shying
away from talking about
the program's difficulties.
As a junior, he developed
into one of the country's
best quarterbacks, throw-
ing for 3,528 yards and 39
touchdowns with only sev-
en interceptions on a team
that one of the best in the
country the last half of the
season. The Trojans won
seven of their final eight
games to climb the polls,
though had to endure
second straight bowl-less
season thanks to sanctions
that end next season.
USC left tackle Matt Kalil
declared for the NFL draft
last week, but on Wednes-
day safety T.J. McDonald
said he was returning for
his senior year.
Now with Barkley, the
Trojans are loaded and
likely one of the front-run-
ners to win next year's na-
tional title.
Barkley also will enter
next season as the leading
contender for the Heisman
Trophy much the way
Stanford's Andrew Luck
did when he made a simi-
lar decision after the 2010
season and can firm up
his place as one of the best
quarterbacks in the history
of a program filled with
_Jgreat ones.


Syracuse Scandal



Fine accuser felt he 'owed' coach


The Associated Press

SYRACUSE, N.Y. Bob-
by Davis was a basket-
ball-crazy teen who was
handed a virtual all-ac-
cess pass to the world of
big-time college hoops by
Syracuse assistant coach
Bernie Fine. As a ball boy
for Hall of Famer Jim Boe-
heim's squad during the
1980s, Davis heard half-
time locker room tirades
from the legendary coach,
took shots at practice, sat
courtside, hit the road and
ate nice dinners.
Davis, now 39 and the
prime accuser in the
sexual abuse scandal at
Syracuse University, says
the indebtedness he felt
toward Fine made it hard
to break from the man
he claims molested him
throughout his teens and
into his late 20s.
"I wanted to be around,
basketball so bad," Davis
said in an interview with
The Associated Press.
"As I got older, I under-
stood more that Bernie
had this power. You al-
most feel it's like a cult in a
sense. You don't know how
to get away," he said. 'And
as more and more time
went on, you feel indebted
to him. You feel like you
owe him. He'd always re-
mind me of all the good
things he-did for me: 'I'm
the first one who got you a
steak dinner.... I took you
to these restaurants. I took
you to these hotels.'"
Davis and his stepbroth-
er Mike Lang claim they
were repeatedly forcibly
touched in the 1980s by
Fine, who has since been
fired.. Davis and Lang last
week filed a defamation
lawsuit against the uni-
versity and Boeheim, who
initially called Davis a liar
and opportunist looking


to cash in on the public-
ity surrounding the Penn
State sex abuse scandal.
Fine has denied the al-
legations. He has not spo-
ken publicly in the month
since the allegations were
raised, and his lawyers
declined to comment
Thursday.
During an interview
Wednesday night with the
AP, Davis said the abuse
would sometimes occur in
Fine's campus office with
secretaries just beyond
the closed door, in Fine's
home, at Syracuse Uni-
versity basketball camp
and at a fraternity house.
After he became a ball boy
around age 11, Davis said,
he went everywhere with
Fine. He fetched cookies
for news conferences and
shadowed the team.
"I was in there during
halftime speeches when
Boeheim was kicking over
chalkboards and scream-
ing and swearing," Davis
said. "I was part of ev-
erything for a long time.
He's (Boeheim) seen me
everywhere."
Davis' claim that he was
always hanging around is
crucial to his defamation
lawsuit, which contends
Boeheim "knew or should
have known" about the
'alleged. conduct of his
assistant.,
Davis said Boeheim saw
him lounging on Fine's
hotel room bed in New
Orleans in shorts and a T-
shirt during the 1987 Final
Four. He said Fine had got-
ten up to answer the door
and was exchanging some
paperwork when Boeheim
spied him.
"I just remember him ...
kind of itching his head
and looking, glancing at
me, and I just felt like an
uneasiness, an uncom-
fortableness," Davis said.

interview in Syracuse, N.Y. Davis was a basketball-crazy teen
who was handed a virtual all-access pass to the world of big-
time college hoops by Syracuse assistant coach Bernie Fine.


Boeheim has denied go-
ing to Fine's room or see-
ing Davis there.
Davis and Lang went
public with their allega-
tions on ESPN last month.
District Attorney William
Fitzpatrick said earlier
this month that Davis was
credible, but he couldn't
investigate under state law
because the statute of lim-
itations had expired. Two
other men, Zach Toma-
selli of Lewiston, Maine,
and FloydVanHooser, who
is in prison on a burglary
conviction, have also ac-
cused Fine, though Fitz-
patrick has said that there
is evidence that under-
cuts Tomaselli's claim and
that a "fourth accuser" he
did not identify lacked
credibility.
Federal prosecutors are
investigating.
.Boeheim, in his 36th
year coaching Syracuse,
vehemently supported his
longtime assistant when
the accusations broke and
said Davis was lying. "The
Penn State thing came
out, and the kid behind
this is. trying to get mon-
ey," he told the Syracuse
Post-Standard.

victims' rights advocates,
Boeheim later apologized
and said he spoke out of
loyalty and was basing his
comments on a 2005 uni-
versity investigation that
failed to corroborate Da-
vis' claims.
Davis met Fine in the
early 1980s at a park that
was a basketball hangout
for neighborhood kids in
a working-class section of
the city.
"I was up at Sunnycrest
playing and Bernie was
up there playing, and he
got me on his team," Davis
said. "They never would
let me play because I was
young. And he goes, 'Oh,
you can play with me.' ...
And Bernie was a big guy
and they respected him up
there. I remember he was
actually pretty good." .
Afterward, Fine invited
him over for a barbecue
dinner with others.
Davis said Fine began
abusing him around the
time he became a ball boy
in 1983. Fine turned into
a father figure, and as Da-
vis spent more time at the
older man's house actu-
ally living there sometimes
- the abuse escalated
from touching outside


the pants to inside, ac-
cording to Davis. Some of
the abuse would occur in
Davis' bed in Fine's base-
ment while Fine's wife,
Laurie, was home, Davis
said. During the sum-
mer or holiday breaks at
Syracuse, Fine and Davis
would stop at the house of
the fraternity he advised,
Davis claimed.
"He would always say,
'Bobby, come in here.
Come in this room. I'm up
here.' And I'd be like, 'OK,'
and I knew what was going
to happen. He was going
to try to do something,"
Davis said.
Fine's house has been
widely described as a place
where team members,
program staffers and kids
were constantly coming
and going. People came
by for dinner or to lounge
on the big couch to watch
TV. The refrigerator was
stocked with Gatorade,
and his attic was packed
with sneakers, basketball
shorts and other gear that
kids would often try to
raid, Davis said.
Davis said he never saw
another boy being abused
but claimed he saw Fine
rubbing the legs of other
youngsters.
Fine would promise to
give Davis the same type
of orange sneakers worn
by the team if he kept his
grades up a promise he
delivered on every year
Davis was a ball boy.
"That's the only things
that I've ever put two and
two together that I saw
him do similar things like
that, that he did to me, to
other kids," Davis said.
Davis said the sexual
contact continued un-
til his late 20s. He said it
was eating him up and he
eventually got tired of be-
ing controlled by Fine.

Annie's Mailbox


Dear Annie: My friend "Candi" regularly
drinks and drives. She often drinks at a
friend's house and then drives herself
home. There are even times when she
takes her teenage daughter in the car
after she's been drinking.
I've confronted Candi only to be told
that she doesn't have a drinking problem
and I should be quiet. But, I can't tell you
how many times her children and I have
found her passed out in the yard, on the
floor, at the dinner table or behind the
wheel of her car while it's in the driveway.
Candi is endangering her life and the
lives of everyone around her. I can no
longer idly sit back and let this continue.
Is there anything I can do to convince her
she needs help?
LOOKING FOR SOME ANSWERS

Dear Looking: Candi sounds like a
tragedy waiting to happen. We don't
know whether she will ever admit that
she needs help, and you can't force-her.
So, if you know when she is driving
drunk, call the police. If she is drinking


Bridge


At the bridge table, you must trust the dots
from the past the calls and plays to decide
on your future the next call or play. In this
deal, you are West. What are the key dots and
how should they influence your defense?
Against three no-trump, you lead the spade
five: six, nine and king. South plays a low dia-
mond to dummy's king and returns a diamond
to his queen. What should you do next? Note
North's raise. With a good long minor, no single-
ton or void, and insufficient power for a slam,
bid three no-trump or get into your minor.
Which dot must you trust here? East's spade
nine at trick one. That was his highest spade, so
South falsecarded by winning with his king in-
stead of with his jack. You should see that if you
lead the spade queen, South will take at least
three spades, five diamonds and one club.
Instead, you must shift to the heart three,
the low card telling your partner that you have
honors in this suit and are trying to win tricks in
it. East should win with his ace and return the
heart six (the higher of two remaining cards),
giving your side one diamond and four hearts.
Note that if you had shifted to a heart to try
to get East on lead for a spade return through
declarer, you would have led a high heart, not
your lowest.


in your presence, take away her car keys.
Caution Candi's daughter not to get into
the car with her mother when she's been
drinking. Also contact Al-Anon (al-anon.
alateen.org) and suggest to Candi's
daughter that she do the same.

Dear Annie: I read the letter from
"Frank," who cheated on his wife and lost
his family and his once-charmed life. ,
I, too, made a huge mistake by cheat-
ing. I was so ignorant and selfish that I
didn't realize how badly I would be scar-
ring individuals I loved. My husband and
I divorced. My children heard about my
infidelities from everyone in town. I was
shunned by people who once respected
me. My children's spouses are now privy
to my mistakes and will never be able
to bond with me as they might have. If
I could go back and live my first mar-
riage as a faithful wife, I would. I should
have counted my blessings, instead of
nit-picking his flaws and using that as an
excuse for my bad behavior.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.
19) Nothing worthwhile
will be achieved if your
plans are overly convolut-
ed and complex.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
19) 'If you poke. your
snoot into situations or
places where it doesn't
belong, you're likely to
get drawn into something
unpleasant.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March
20) Important decisions
shouldn't be rushed, espe-
cially without first consult-
ing the opinions of every-
body who will be affected.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
- Family and companions
have enough to do, so don't
ask anything of them that
you can take care of.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
- Be exceptionally mindful
of how much you're put-
ting on your credit card.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
- People in general are a
bit touchy, so avoid dis-
cussing volatile issues with
anybody, especially your
mate. If a distasteful sub-
ject is introduced, it could
spoil your day.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
- It's always unwise to im-
pose one's ideas on others,
but it could prove to be es-
pecially disastrous during
the holidays. People mere-
ly want to relax and enjoy
themselves.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
- There's no, need to be
totally wasteful regarding
things that bring you in-
stant gratification.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
- It might seem like every-
one is making heavy de-
mands on your time, and
you may have to alter your
plans somewhat to accom-
modate them.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
- If you are a tad too sen-
sitive for your own good,
it might cause you to put
up a wall instead of build-
ing bridges to meet friends
and family halfway, like
you should.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov.
22) Unless you try to live
within your means, you
will end up with a severe
case of spender's remorse.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-
Dec. 21) The best way
to get people to help you
achieve your personal ob-
jectives is to keep your as-
sertiveness in check.
