crisis course
Local school offi :ials anid law enforce-
ment officers took part in a school crisis
management course hosted by the Ru-
ral Domestic Preparedness Consortium
on _Monday.
The purpose of die course is to make
those in charge of school safety aware
of the threats out there and possible
solutions tro hose threats, said Trainer
I. Branch Walton. By learning about the
threats, officials can make or amend
their own crisis management plan.
"We felt it \\as better to prepare ahead

ute," said Jackson County Sheriff Lou
Rural police departments don't have
as many resources as those in bigger/cit-

ChristTown doses barbecue

restaurant and thrift store


..- ChristTown Ministries closed its thrift
store and barbecue restaurant on Jan. 1
S after struggling with finances for months.
Pastor Bob Wells said both businesses
would have had to make a lot more mon-
ey to cover rent and utilities.
The revenue generated from the busi-
Snesses went to supporting the 40 men
who live under the ministry's care. These
men work through their life issues and
--. .addictions through rehabilitation classes,
step programs and studying the Bible.
MARKSKINNER/FLORIDAN' "We don't change anybody, but I be-
ChristTown has closed down both its bargain center at the intersection of Kelson Avenue and lieve with all my heart that God almighty
Smith Street and its restaurant on Madison Street. Changes them," Wells explained.

ChristTown gives the men food, cloth-
ing and shelter for free while they receive
spiritual help. A roadside barbecue/ca-
tering service will be-set up. The men are
also doing jobs like helpingpeople move,
painting houses,; and repair work. Wells
hopes closing the businesses will give
him more class time with the residents.
In the future, Wells wants to expand the
care homes in order to help more people.
He's also looking into starting a new min-
istry in more cities.
"There is no shortage of people needing
help," Wells said.
Anyone interested in hiring the labor
crew or donating money, clothing, used
furniture, etc. can call Kevin Beauchamp
at 272-4671 orAl Howard at 509-2222.

Muslim man from Kosovo charged in bomb plot

The Associated Press

TAMPA A Kosovo-bom man
was charged with plotting to at-
tack Tampa-area nightclubs and
a sheriff's office with bombs and
an assault rifle to avenge wrongs
done to Muslims, federal au-
thorities said Monday.
According to a federal com-
plaint, 25-year-old Sami Osmak-
ac recorded an eight-minute
video shortly before his arrest ex-
plaining why he wanted to bring
terror to his "victims' hearts" in
the Tampa Bay area. Osmakac
is a naturalized American citi-
zen born in Kosovo, then part of
the former Yugoslavia in eastern
In the video, Osmakac isseen
cross-legged on the floor with
a pistol in his hand and an AK-
47 behind him. Osmakac said
in the video that Muslim blood
was more valuable than that of
people who do not believe in Is,-
lam, according to the complaint.
He said he wanted "payback" for
wrong that was done to Muslims,
according to the complaint.
There ispno indication that Os-
makac planned to attack the Re-
publican National Convention,
which will be held in Tampa in
August, federal authorities said.
The area's Muslim community
helped provide authorities with
information, said Steve Ibison,
the special agent in charge of the
FBI's Tampa division.
"This case is not about the
Muslim religion and it's not
about the Muslim community,"
Ibison said. "It's about an indi-
vidual who committed a crime."
Hassan Shibly, a Tampa attor-
ney and the executive director
of the Council on American-Is-
lamic Relations, said he met Os-
makac briefly over the summer.

Osmakac was "ranting" about
how CAIR was an "infidel orga-
nization," Shiblny
"It was very
clear he was very
disturbed, very
angry and very
misguided about
0slkamc the Islamic faith,"
said Shibly, adding
that Osmakac did not appear to
be a member of any of the area's
mosques and had "disassociated
himself" from those houses of
worship. "He was very, very ig-
norant of Islam. He didn't know
Arabic or anything about basic
Islamic teachings about promot-
ing peace."
Shibly said the CAIR office re-
ceived calls from people in the
Islamic community who were
concerned about Osmakac's ex-
treme views.
"Contact the authorities as
soon as possible," Shibly said he
told those people.
Osmakac gave only brief an-
swers to basic questions during
his~first appearance in' federal
court Monday. He wore a blue
jail outfit and was shackled at
his wrists and ankles. His public
defender, Alec Hall, declined to
comment afterward.
U.S. Magistrate Judge Anthony
Porcelli ordered Osmakac held
without bail. If convicted on the
single count of attempted use
of a weapon of mass destruc-
tion, Osmakac could face life in
Osmakac was arrested Satur-
day the day officials said he
was planning his attack after
he allegedly bought explosive
devices and firearms from an
imndercover agent. The firearms
and explosives were disabled be-
fore the sale.

Osmakac lived with his parents
in a tan stucco home in Pinellas
Park, Fla., a small city west of
Tampa. He worked occasion-
ally at the Balkan Food Store and
Bakery in St. Petersburg, a small
store owned by his par-ats.
On Monday, a man identify-
ing himself as Osmakac's older
brother was at the store. He
would not give The Associated
Press his name but said his
brother was innocent.
"It's all made up," the man said.
"I don't believe it."
According to public records,
Osmakac had one prior brush
with, the law. In April 2011, Tam-
pa Police said Osmakac, dressed
in "what appeared to be tradi-
tional Middle-Eastern attire with
a small cloth" on his head, got
into an argument over religion
outside a Lady Gaga concert in
downtown Tampa.
A police report said anti-gay
Christian protesters outside the
concert saw Osmakac driving
by in a truck and turned their
attention to him because of his
"The protesters began verbally
berating the man and the Mus-
lim faith and their attacks be-
came personal and nasty," wrote
Tampa officer Kevin Krupa.
The report said Osmakac
parked his vehicle, walked'up
to the protesters .and got into
an argument with one man who
insulted Allah, Mohammed and
the Quran. Osmakac was ac-
cused of head butting one man
and was charged with battery -
although Krupa noted that the
protesters were "not promoting
peace "or tolerance, but rather of
inciting violence and hate."
That case had not yet been
resolved, according to court

'This case is not about the Muslim religion and
it's not about the Muslim community. It's about an
individual who committed a crime "
Steve Ibison,
special agent in charge of FBI's Tampa division

Federal officials say Osmakac's
new charges stem from informa-
tion given to them by a confiden-
tial source in September 2011.
According to the federal re-
port, Osmakac walked into the
source's business looking for
al-Qaida flags. The confidential
source then hired Osmakac and
was in constant contact with fed-
eral officials and audio or video
taped their conversations.
Two months later, the federal
complaint said, Osmakac and
the confidential' source dis-
cussed and identified potential
targets in Tampa that Osmakac
wanted to attack.
Osmakac allegedly asked the
source for help getting fire-
arms and explosives for the at-
tacks, and the source put him in
touch with an undercover FBI
On Dec. 21, Osmakac met with
the undercover agent and al-
legedly told the agent that he
wanted to buy an AK-47-style
machine gun, Uzi submachine
guns, high capacity magazines,
grenades and an explosive belt.
During a later meeting, Osmakac
gave the agent a $500 down pay-
ment for the items.
Osmakac also asked the under-
cover employee to build bombs
that could be placed in three dif-
ferent vehicles and detonated
remotely, the U.S.. Justice De-
partment said in a press release.
Osmakac then planned to follow
up with an attack using the other
weapons he asked for, authori-

ties said.
On Jan. 1, Osmakac told the
agent he wanted to bomb night-
clubs, the operations center of
the Hillsborough County Sher-
iff's Office and a business in
Osmakac told the undercover
FBI agent that he wanted to det-
onate a car bomb and use the ex-
plosive belt to "get in somewhere
where there's a lot of people" and
take hostages.
Osmakac told the agent that
after he took hostages he wanted
to demand something from the
"kuffar" an Arabic word that
means infidels or disbelievers of
Islam, federal authorities said.
According to the affidavit, he
also said, "Honestly, I would love
to go for the Army people, but
their bases are so locked up, I
have to do something else."
Osmakac said he wanted to
take down the bridges that link
Tanipa to neighboring Pinellas
"This will crush the whole
economy," he allegedly said to
the agent. "This would crush
everything man, they would
have no more food coming in.
They would, nobody would have
During that meeting, the agent
told Osmakac he could always
change his mind about his plot.
"According to the complaint,
Osmakac immediately shook his
head in the negative and stated,
'We all have to die, so why not
die the Islamic way?'"

FAA says pilots can

The Associated Press

lots of the bird-like aircraft
that has been leading nine
young whooping cranes' to
their winter home in Flor-
ida have been granted a
special exemption by fed-
eral regulators to continue
their journey.

ministration has provided
a one-time waiver to Oper-
ation Migration, a conser-
vation organization trying
to re-establish an Eastern

how to make the flight.
Operation Migration ran
into trouble with the FAA
because it pays salaries to
pilots. FAA regulations say
sport planes a category
that sometimes includes
aircraft of exotic design
- can only be flown for
personal use.
"Because the operation
is in 'mid-migration,' the
FAA is granting a one-time
exemption so the migra-

tion can be completed,"
the agency said in a state-
ment. "The FAA will work
with Operation Migration
to develop a more com-

FAA officials notified the
conservation group's pi-
lots in late November that
the agency had opened
an investigation. Just be-
fore Christmas, Opera-

grounded the plane and
the birds in northwestern

way to their destination.
Joe Duff, an Operation

a difference a year makes.
This year's annual state
legislative session is
starting on Tuesday, two
months earlier than usual.,
Legislators have to ap-,
prove maps that redraw
Congressional and legisla-
tive districts based on new
U.S. Census figures, and,
the district maps must be
ready in time for the 2012
Last.session, lawmakers
were fresh off an election
that .. strengthened Re-
publican control of both
That supermajority, with
varying success, tackled
several audacious goals:
overhauling election laws,
strengthening gun rights,
reducing labor union
power, exerting more au-
thority over the court sys-
tem and ending tenure for
new public school teach-
ers, to name a few. .
Now, Florida House
Speaker Dean Cannon,
R-Winter Park, is talking
about the legislature hav-
ing "limited bandwidth"
for issues other than redis-
tricting and the required
passage of a state budget.
Senate President Mike
Haridopolos is even say-
ing the Legislature may
skip dealing with the bud-
get and the state's nearly
$2 billion budget shortfall,
and end the regular ses-
sion earlier than the usual
60 days.
Haridopolos, R-Mer-
ritt Island, explained last

week it may be too soon in
the year to have a handle
on the state's finances.
Legislators have until July
to pass a budget'and could
convene a special session.
Republican Gov. Rick Scott
and GOP legislators say
they will not raise taxes to
help offset the projected
Nonetheless, lawmakers
have filed dozens of bills
dealing with everything,
from abortion, to mandat-
ing drug testing for state
employees, to giving par-
ents the, right to choose a
different teacher if a teach-
er gets a bad evaluation.
It's up to Cannon and
Haridopolos if they want
to deal with contentious
items during an election
year when many Republi-
cans are more concerned
about knocking off Presi-
dent Barack Obama and
Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill
For instance, a new
gambling proposal would
allow mega-casinos any-
where in the- state, but
only after a county refer-
endum. That means vot-
ers could decide if dog
tracks and horse tracks
in their counties can add
slot machines.
The bill, sponsored by
state Sen. Ellyn Bogda-
noff, R-Fort Lauderdale,
also calls for regulating
Internet gaming cafes,
which offer sweepstakes
entries to customers who
buy Internet time.
Lawmakers also may
again tackle insurance
fraud that has led to steep

increases for Florida driv-
ers required to carry per-
sonal injury protection,
or PIP. The PIP fraud issue
has escaped resolution for
more than 10 years.
State] Rep. Gayle Har-
rell, R-StUtart, filed a bill
that would require Florida
employers to check the
citizenship status of new
workers with a federal da-
tabase known as E-Verify.
The requirement would
start in January 2013 if
Last year, lawmakers
debated a tough immigra-
tion bill backed byseveral
leading Republicans. But
the House and Senate
could not agree, and the
measure died.
Haridopolos is commit-
ted to getting two bills
passed that would com-
pensate men whose lives
were turned upside down
by government mistakes.
One would benefit Eric
Brody, who suffered brain
damage. and paralysis
when he was 18 after a
speeding Broward County
sheriff's deputy- running
late to work crashed
into his car in 1998. The

other would pay $810,000
to William Dillon, who
spent 27 years in prison
for a Brevard County slay-
ing he didn't commit.
But redrawing the state's
maps for elected offices no
doubt will take up much
of legislators' energy. The
Legislature must draw 120
House districts, 40 Senate
districts and 27 congres-
sional districts.
Anti- gerrymandering
amendments put into
the Florida Constitution
in 2010 apply to congres-
sional and legislative dis-
tricts. For the first time,
lawmakers will have de-
tailed guidelines they
must follow when redraw-
ing district lines after ev-
ery 10-year census. They
ban drawing lines with the
intent to benefit incum-
bents or political parties.
The state legislative
maps, but not the con-
gressional ones, go to the
Florida Supreme Court to
ensure they comply with
the state constitution. Gov.
Rick Scott, a Republican,
has veto power over the
congressional maps but
not the legislative ones.

This winter, almost 15 feet of
snow has. fallen on Cordova,
with a series of bursts that ended
with a rain drenching over the
weekend that added substantial
weight to the snow and slicked
up the landscape.
The town issued a disaster
declaration Friday, prompting
,the National Guard to send more
than 70 troops Sunday. Heavy
equipment, including a snow-

melting machine, also arrived
Sunday to supplement local
"It's just been relentless, just
nonstop," city spokesman Allen
Marquette said Monday. "This
year is just accumulating."
Some roofs have collapsed or
partially caved-in under the wet
snow that's at least six feet high
on some buildings. So far, no in-
juries have been reported.
*. At the Coho Cafe restaurant
and bar, the roof of a back shed

caved in when snow from the
restaurant's pitched roof slid off
and hit it Saturday evening. The
restaurant wasn't opened and no
one was hurt.
Kara-\\i-1te. a waitress and bar
tender, heard the surreal roar
of the collapse. "There's no de-

a break from shoveling.

a storm. By the time the weather
had improved, barge delivery to
an iced-in town- of about 3,500
people was impossible.
The' Coast Guard's only func-
tioning icebreaker was leading
the way Monday and providing
a path for the tanker as the two
vessels moved slowly toward
.Nome. The .370-foot tanker is
loaded with 1.3 million gallons

of petroleum products. Around
noon Monday, the vessels were
about 150 miles from Nome.
A Coast Guard spokesman said
the tanker and the Coast Guard
Cutter Healy were encountering
"some really dynamic ice" that is
slowing the mission.
The icebreaker is creating a
path for the tanker, which is fol-
lowing as closely as is safe. But
as the tanker moves forward, the
ice is shifting and at times pinch-
ing the side, the Coast Guard
said. The icebreaker has had to
double back and open another
channel to take pressure off the
"As long as we're making prog-
ress, we're going to Nome," said
Anchorage Coast Guard Petty
Officer First Class David Mosley.
"The Coast Guard cutter Healy
has the ability to make it all the
way to Nome.".
Nome has enough fuel for now
and is not in dire need. However,
if the delivery is not made, the
community probably will run
short of certain petroleum prod-
ucts before a barge delivery in
late spring.
Jason Evans, board chairman
of Sitnasuak Native Corp., the
company arranging for the fuel
delivery, was optimistic Monday.
"I thihk we are getting to Nome,"
he said.

JACKSON, Miss, Out-
going Mississippi Gov. Hal-
ey Barbour has pardoned
'at least four convicted kill-
ers who worked as inmate
trusties at the Governor's
Mansion, including a man
who was denied parole less
than two weeks ago.
Relatives of three \ictimns
told The Associated Press
on Monday that state cor-
tections officials notified
them over the weekend
that the conflict were to
be released this past Sun-
day. Barbour, a Republican
who weighed a presiden-
tial run last year before
deciding against it, leaves
office on Tuesday.
The pardon, outraged
victims' relatives. Demo-
cratic lawmakers called
for an .end to the custom
of governors' issuing such
end-of-lenure pardons
While Barbour's office
hasn't responded to mes-
sages about the pardons,
he told the AP in 2008
that releasing the trusties
who live and work at the
mansion is a tradition in
Mississippi that goes back
decades. Trusties are pris-
oners who -earn privileges;
through good behavior.
The Barbour administra-
Ition did not publicize the-
pardons,, which became
public when family mem-
bers notified the media.
The Mississippi Secretary
of State's office released
copies of the pardons Mon-
day afternoon. They show
Barbour has pardoned at
least five men.
The former inmates are
David Gatlin, convicted of
killing his estranged wife
in 1993; Joseph Ozment,
convicted in 1994 of killing
a man during a robbery;
Anthony McCray, con-
victed in 2001 of killing his
wife; Charles Hooker, sen-
tenced to life in 1992 for
murder; and Nathan Kern,
sentenced to life in 1982
for burglary after at least
two prior convictions.

Commissioner Chris Epps
said Monday afternoon
that the inmates were re-

Randy Walker, who lives

voted for Barbour for gov-
ernor in 2003 and 2007.
Before Barbour's pardon
of Gatlin, Walker said :he
would've supported Bar-
bour for president, if Bar-
bout had run.
"I'm totally disgusted,"
Walker said Monday. "I
think Gov. Barbour at heart
is a great man. I think he's
done a lot of good for the
state of Mississippi, but I
think he's made a huge er-
ror here. ... One man can't

Many communities

are now blocking

medical marijuana

More and more states
are saying yes to medical
marijuana. But local gov-
ernments are increasingly
using their laws to just say
no,-not in our backyard.
In California. with the
nation's most permis-
sive medical marijuana
laws, 185 cities and coun-
ties have banned pot
dispensaries entirely. In
New jersey, perhaps the
most restrictive of the 17
states that have legalized
marijuana for sick people,
some groups planning to
sell cannabis are strug- .
gling to find local govern-
ments willing to let them
in : . ....
Dispensaries haxe :also'
been banned in parts of
Colorado and have run
into opposition in some
fowrns in Maine.
Local politicians have
argued that pot is still il-"
legal under federal law,
that marijuana dispehsa-.
lies bring crime, and that
such businesses are just
fronts for drug-dealing,
supplying weed to people-
w ho aren't really sick.
Cities and towns are
prohibiting dispensaries
outright or applying zon-
ing ordinances so strict
that they amount to the
same thing. The ordinanc-
es typically set minimum
distances between, such
businesses and schools,
homes, parks and houses
, of worship..
'The township manager
of .Maple Shade, N.J.,
where the zoning board
last year turned down an.
application for a dispen-
sary at the vacant site of
a former furniture store,
said his town was just fol-
lowing zoning law. But
Gary LaVenia said it is
easy to see why people

would be nervous about
legal pot-dealing in their
"People read the ac-
counts of w hat's going on

Colorado, like California,"
he said. "Regardless of the
fact that use here is the
most regulated, people

is going to hurt people in
desperate need of relief.
,"It prevents patients
with mobility issues from
getting their medica-
tion," said Kris Hermes,
a spokesman for Ameri-
cans for Safe Access. an
Oakland, Calif., group. "It
also pushes patients into
the illicit market."
States such as California
and Colorado have seen
an explosion in the nunm-
ber of pot dispensaries,
along with criticism that
the rules are- so lax that
practically, anyone can
buy weed.
Local governments are
within their rights to re-
strict or keep out pot busi-
nesses, said Lars Etzkorn,
program director for the
National League of Cities.
"Land-use and business
regulation are the most
fundAmental decision-
making that local officials
are entrusted with," he
said. "Local communities,
the local electorate, can
decide what sort of level
of regulation they want."
But medical marijuana
is particularly thorny, he
said, because it can place
mayors and town councils
in an awkward position of
deciding whether to fol-
low federal law, which
makes marijuana posses-
sion a crime, or state law.

Iran sentences ex-Marine to death in CIA case

The Associated Press

TEHRAN, Iran A' for-
mer U.S. Marine interpret-
er arrested while on a trip
to visit his Iranian grand-
rnr,rth:rs has been sen-
tenced to death as a CIA
spy, state radio reported
' [r'ind:,, in a case likely to
become a new flashpoint
in the -.,.' .arirg tensions
between Tehran's defiance
over its nuclear program
and a.',hing,'n'. efforts
to impose more crippling
. It was the first time an
American citizen has been
sentenced to death in Iran
since the 1979 Islamic Rev-
olution, according to the
internaioni.jl Campaign
for Human Rights in Iran.
"We are seriously con-
cerned regarding the death
sentence, secrecy, and
continued lack of trans-
parency surrounding the
prosecution," said Hadi
Ghaerni. i spot.esnianr for
the New' Yrk-ba_-ed group.
The espionage charges
agatnsr Arizona-born Anir
*.lirzae Hekrnati were
similar to previous prose-
curions against Americans
who w.vere sentenced to jail
rime and later freed, in-
cluding an lianjan-Amieri-
can journali-. in 2009
and three U11 S. citizens
detained along the Iraq
border. Iranian prosecu-
tors. huove er, had stressed
Hekriati's links to the U.S
military in :calling for capi-
tal puni hmnent.
In Washington. National

Security Council spokes-
man Tommy Vietor de-
scribed Hekmati, 28, as a
victim of false charges and
said the U.S. was working
with allies to "convey our
condemnation to the Ira-
nian government."
'Allegations that Mr. Hek-
mati either worked for, or
was sent to Iran by the CIA,
are simply untrue. The Ira-
nian regime has a history
of falsely accusing people
of being spies, of eliciting
forced confessions, and of
holding innocent Ameri-
cans for political reasons,"
said State Department
spokeswoman Victoria
Regardless of the facts of
the case, Iranian officials
may now see Hekmati as a
potential bargaining chip
in efforts to fend off tighter
U.S.-led sanctions that
could undercut Iran's oil
Iran has recently ramped
up its warnings about U.S.
economic pressures and
military involvement in the
region, including trieaten-
ing to use warships to clo)e
off \ital uii tanker traffic in
the Gull and displaying a
captured CIA survn-eillance
drone last month as evi-
dence of what it called co-
vert plots by Washington.

represent the U.S. interests
in Iran because Washing-
ton and Tehran have no
diplomatic relations -
have tried unsuccessfulJly
to gain access to Hekrnatj.
\\ho graduated from high

school in Michigan- Hek-
mati claims dual citizen-
ship, but Iran considers
anyone born to an ir-_nIan
father to be a citizen solely
of the Islamic Republ'c.
Hekmati's mo1-her,
Behnraa2, said she and her
husband Ali a profes-
sor at a community college
in Flint, Michigan were
"shocked and terrified" by
the conviction and death
"A grave error has been
committed, and we have
authorized our legal rep-
resentatives to make direct
thorities to find a solution
to this misunderstanding,"
she said in a statement
emailed to The Associated
Press. "We pray that Irann-
will show compassion and
not murder our son, Amir,
a nanrral-bn-m American
citizen, who was visiting
Iran and his relatives for
the first time."
Iran has often claimed
it has detained foreign
spies, but few detail, ever
emerge. Hekmaris case
stood out as a high-profile
propaganda tool for Ira-
nian authorities.
Iran claims Hekmani re-
ceived special training
and served at U.S. military
bases in Iraq and Afghani-
stan before heading to Iran
for his alleged intelligence

Merkel, Sarkozy stress growth a priority

The Associated Press.-

BERLIN- The Ger-
man and French lead-
ers stressed Monday that
boosting economic growth
in the 17-nation eurozone
is a priority, a recognition
that the focus on austerity
cuts-is unlikely to get Eu-
rope out of its debt crisis.
Some anal sts fear e:ces-
sive austerity measuries'rtl
take a heavy toll on weak-
ening economic growth
and push the eurozone
into recession this year, in
turn hindering the region's
deficit-cutting efforts.
Germany has so far been
the biggest proponent of
:debt reduction as the key
for financially weak coun-
tries to regain investor
confidence. On Monday,
however, Chancellor An-
gela Merkel acknowledged
that austerity alone cannot
resolve everything.
"Budget consolidation
is one of the legs Europe's
future must be built on,
but of course we need a
second leg and that is ...
the question of economic
growth, jobs and employ-
ment," she told reporters
alongside President Nico-
las Sarkozy
They proposed that Eu-
rope compare countries'
labor market practices and
learn from the best, and
that already available Eu-
ropean funding be used to
support small and medi-
unm-sized companies and
projects such as expand-
ing broadband Internet
They said they would
consider'speeding up pay-

which is to. start work this

"EU leaders have to un-
derstand that mere lip-

"Many of the more trou-
bled economies are at
serious risk of their debt
snowballing out of control
under excessive austerity,"
he added.
Europe is now work-

Chipoia Lady n car .: -

No. 13 Lady Indians host

undefeated Lady Raiders

dkent'jic' ridan COr
After winning their Panhandle
Conference opener in Talla-
hassee on Sjrurda',, the No. 13
Chipola Lady Indians will look to
make it a 2-0 start in league play
tonight when they host NJCAA
No. 2 Northwest Florida State at
5:30 p.m. in the Milton H. John-
son Health Center.
Chipola (13-4) beat the Talla-
hassee Lady Eagles 52-49 over
the weekend, getting 18 points
and 12 rebounds from Sara Djas-
si, and holding off a late TCC run
to earn the victory.
The Lady Indians also got
eight points apiece from Kris-
tine Brance and Jeniece John-
son, and won in spite of 28

need to look a lot different if
they're to win tonight, according
to Chipola coach David Lane.
"The turnovers were not good
in any way, shape, or form," he
said. "Maybe we were too excit-
ed, but we made some really bad
passes. If we keep doing that, it's
not going to be good."
Turnovers have been an issue
for Chipola in recent games

despite an emphasis in practice
on better ball security.
"It's just frustrating. The last
two games, we've turned it over a
ton. After the Daytona game (on
Jan. 2), my 3-year-old daughter
said to me after the game, 'Dad-
dy, your girls passed bad.' Even
she can pick up on it," Lane said.
"We're just making bad passes
arid bad decisions. We try for
the spectacular play instead of
just making two or three simple
plays to equal the one spectacu-
lar play. We haven't bought into
that yet."
The Lady Indians will need a
more solid effort tonight against
a Northwest Florida State (-17-
0) team that is yet to be beaten

Panhandle showdown

State's top two teams

face off in Marianna

The top two teams in the state of Flori-
da will do battle tonight at the Milton H.
Johnson Health Center, as FCSAA No. 1
Northwest Florida State comes to Mari-
anna to face FCSAA No. 2 Chipola at 7:30
Chipola (17-1) comes into the game
with just one black mark on its resume,
an overtime loss to Santa Fe on Dec. 17.
The Indians, also ranked No. 6 in the
nation, edged by the TCC Eagles in Tal-
lahassee 53-50 on Saturday in their Pan-
handle Conference debut, winning de-
spitep.sing second leading scorer Jason.
Carter to a knee injury in the first half.
Chipola coach Jake Headrick said he
was impressed with his team's ability
to win despite the injury and a night inf
which the Indians didn't have their A'
game. '
"I didn't think we played our best offen-
sively," the coach said of his team, which
shot just 34 percent from the field and
14 percent from the 3-point line for the
game. "The important thing was that we
found a way to win. When things weren't
going our way with'Jason's injury and
us making shots, the bottom line is we
found a way. That's what it's about this
time ofthe year.
"You do whatever yotu can to win a
game like that. It's definitely a confidence
booster for us because Tallahassee has al -
ways been a tough place for us to plaN."
Headrick said that Carter, the talented
6 foot, 9 inch transfer from Alabama, was
scheduled to have an MRI done on his
knee on Monday to determine his status,
but that he was "very doubtful" to play
"It's a big loss for us," the coach said.
"Jason's a sophomore and an experi-
enced guy, and he's been playing really
well this year. We've just got to be hopeful
and optimistic that he'll be back with us
soon. The good news is that's probably
our deepest spot on the team."
Freshmen post players Kruize Pinkins
and Earl Watson have both played well
for the Indians coming off the bench

Terel Hall goes up for two for Chipola.

this season, ahd both will be asked to log
heavy minutes tonight next to freshman
center Joseph Uchebo, who currently
leads the Indians in scoring at 13 points
per game.
. "Kruize and Earlwill both get a lot more
time and I'm confident in those two guys
that they can do the job," Headrick said.
"We may not be able to replace Jason, but
we hope to get it done by committee."
Pinkins had eight points in the win over
TCC, while Tevin Baskin had nine points
and nine rebounds, and Uchebo led the

team with 18 points and 11 rebounds.
The Indians led the game by four at the
half and extended it to eight in the sec-
ond half, but the Eagles rallied back to tie
the game at 50-50 with two minutes to
play before a basket in the lane by Tran-
tell Knight put Chipola up for good.
The Raiders were also victorious in
their Panhandle opener on Saturday,
routing the Gulf Coast Commodores 94-
60 to move to 16-0 on the season.




Whites triple-

double lifts

Lady Hornets


The Cottondale Lady Hornets
got a monster performance from
senior center Fredericka White
and dominated the Bethlehem
Lady Wildcats on Thursday night
en route to a 58-34 road victory.
'White had 24 points, 15
rebounds, and a whipping 15
blocked shots for Cottondale,
giving her a triple-double and
giving the Lady Hornets their
third win over Bethlehem this
Cottondale improved to 7-7
on the season with the victory,
and Lady Hoinets coach Shan
Pittman said there would be
many, more wins to come if
White, who is playing in her first
year of high school basketball,
continued to play at the level she
played Thursday.
"It was a great performance for,
especially for someone like her
who hadn't played (organized
basketball) since she was in the
seventh grade before this year,"
Pittman said. "She showed
her athletic ability. She's a real
athletic kid. If she plays like this
or even at 60 percent of this every
night, we'll be able to make some
noise in the playoffs. She has the
ability to elevate others on the
team with her ability."
Khadejah Ward also added
17 points for Cottondale, and
Aaliyah Blount scored 10.
Cottondale was coming off
of three straight losses from
its trip to Arnold High School
for the Marlin Classic over the
Christmas break,, but the Lady
Hornets were a different team
on Thursday.
They jumped out to a 10-4 lead
in the first quarter and took a 22-

Wynterra Pittman, Zay Hender-
son, and Tiara Sorey on Friday
night to take a 51-37 win over the
Holmes County Lady Pirates in
Pittman led the team with 18
points to go along with 14 re-
bounds and three steals, while
Henderson added 16 points
on four 3-pointers, and Sorey
scored nine to help the Lady Ti-
gers notch their ninth win of the
season. Graceville (9-7) led 14-4
through one quarter and 28-11

"We showed sgns ofplaying
at a high level for a period of
Jon Habali,
Graceville head coach

at halftime before pushing the
lead to 25 points late in the sec-
ond half.
"I thought we did a good job of
handling pressure," Lady Tigers
coach Jon Habali said after the
game. "We capitalized with ball
reversal off of traps and we were
able to attack when we needed
to attack and knocked down a lot
of easy looks. We were more pa-
tient than we have been for most
of the year on offense and shared
the ball nicely.
"Defensively, I thought we

showed signs -of being solid, but
we still left too many open shots
and gave up too many second
and third chances."
Mikayla Moore led Holmes
County with 16 points.
Habali praised the play of Pitt-
man, Henderson, and Sorey, and
said the team as a whole looked
at times how he envisioned them
at the start of the season.
"We showed signs of playing at
a high level for a period of time,"
the coach said. "We played in
spurts. There were signs of us
playing at the level we need to be
at if we're going to win the games
that mean the most."
Graceville will travel to Sneads
to take on the Lady Pirates on
Monday before returning home
to face Choctawhatchee on

Lady Pirates crush Vernon, 52-18


The Sneads Lady Pirates
cruised to an easy district
victory over Vernon on
Friday night on the road,
beating the Lady Yellow-
jackets 52-18.
Tasharica McMillion led

F.,- P .- lB
and is coming off of a 68-
58 win over Gulf Coast on
Saturday in its Panhandle
Conference debut.
The Lady. Raiders are led
by returning All-American
point guard JoAnna
Harden, who is leading
the team with 18 points
per game and shooting
38 percent from 3-point
Sophomore forwards
Shae Kelley and Tierra
Prothro are both scoring
11 points per game as
'"They've got some good


Sneads with 16 points,
seven assists, five re-
bounds, and five steals,
while La'Tilya Baker and
Aaliyah Williams each
added 11 points. -
Baker also contribut-
ed eight rebounds, five
steals, and five assists,

pieces," Lane said of the
Lady Raiders. "They're
not quite as long as
they were last year, .but
they've got some pretty
good basketball players
with good basketball IQ
and a good feel for the
game. They've got an
All-American in JoAnna
Harden, and Shae Kelley
is a pretty big time player.
They've got a couple of
other girls committed
to Division-I schools, so
they're really talented. It
will be a pretty intense
battle for us."
Northwest plays strictly
zone., defense, so the
- Chipola guards will have
to knock down perimeter

and Ghasity McGriff pro-
vided six points, seven
rebounds, five steals, and
two blocked shots.
The Lady Pirates domi-
nated from the outset,
shutting out Vernon 15-
0 in the first period, and
taking a 30-5 lead into the

shots to keep the Lady
Raiders out of the paint.
"It's just something that
if we can take care of the
ball and make some shots,
we'll be okay. It's about
making shots," Lane said.
"Their zone is effective,
so you have to find your
openings and cash in on
them when you do."
The Lady Indians will
have eight days off before
their next game against
Pensacola on Jan. 18, so
win or lose, they'll have to
live with tonight's result.
for the next week.
Lane said he hopes the
. homecourt advantage
will help give his team
the edge it needs to send

halftime break.
Sneads continued to
cruise in the third, push-
ing the lead to 44-9 and
never being threatened.
The Lady Pirates will
next play host to Gracev-
ille on Monday at 5:30

Chipola into the break on
a high note.
"We stole a game on
the road and now we're
coming home, so we hope
that will be a big part of
it for us," the coach said.
"Playing at the Milt has
been an advantage for us
inthepast, so we're looking
to find that again'with the
community and students
coming out to support
us," he said. "I would hope
we would have a pretty
good "crowd and good
student support. We're
talking about two of the
top teams in the country
coming in here with some
great talent. We need all
the help we can get."

aI e phaed with lot qofintensity." not quite as aggressive as
.LA, ive were tonight," Pimnan
ShanPittma. said after the game. "We

(.omin;--o!olf-ftheChristmas little more aggressive, but it.


With nation's No. 1
Monroe losing twice since
the last NJCAA poll, the
Raiders will likely enter
tonight's game as the No. 1
team in America.
Northwest is averaging
almost 90 points per game
this season, with point
guard and University of
Tennessee signee Chris
Jones leading the way with
nearly 17 points per game.
Sophomore big man
Neiko Hunter is next up
with 15.3 points per night,
with Rod Rucker (12.2),
Shawn Jackson (10.7), and
Trency Jackson (10) giving
the Raiders five players
averaging double figures.
"They'll probably come
in here ranked No. 1 in
the country, and they're
probably worthy of that
ranking," Headrick said
of the Raiders. "The thing
about them is that out of
their top six.guys, five of
them were there last year
when they didn't make
the state tournament.
Watching them this year,
I think they've had sort of
a chip on their shoulder. I
told our guys that's sort of
how we were year ago.
"On top of that they
added a point guard in
Chris Jones who is asgood
as anybody in the country.
Jones and Neiko Hunter,
those two guys are as good
, as anybodyout there."
The game will be a
contrast in st'les, with the
fast paced Raiders looking
to speed up the defensive
minded Indians, who have
allowed only four of their
18 opponents to crack 60

"We played with a lot of
Contondale will have to
cary' over that intensity to
Monday's monster District
3-1A match-up against

points in a game and only
one to break 70.
Headrick said it will be
important for his team to
be the one that dictates the
pace of the game.
"We'vegotto trytoimpose
our willon the game, which
is to not get into a track
meet with them," he said. 'I
joked with my staffthat (the
Raiders) scored 94 points in
their first conference game,
and it might take us three
days to score that many
points. But I love our team.
The lower the score, the
better of fit will fit us and
what we do best.
"We've got to do a great
Sjob of not getting into an
up tempo kind of game.
We've got to have control
and get good shots. Just
because they're running up
and down the court doesn't
mean that's- what we need
to do."
The Indians will have the
homecourt advantage, and
Headrick said he hopes that
plays a big role for his team
against the school that has
been perhaps their biggest
rival in recent years.
"I tell our guys that this
Chipola-Northwest game
has sort of always had a
North Carolina-Duke feel
to it on a much smaller
stage," he said. "They're
coming in here 16-0 and
we're 17-1. The bottom line
i s it's two very successful
teams playing each other,
so I' hope we can get a lot of
support from the fans.
"It's not' everyday you
get to watch two of the
top five or six teams inthe
country play each other,
so we'll need that home-
court advantage and big
crowd and a loud crowd,
no doubt." '

Dear Annie: A few years ago. I was ready
to begin a new job pending a drug test
and was told to call a few days after for
my\-.tart date. 1 live cleanly and don't
touch drugs or alcohol.-
I contacted the company and left a
voicemail. I called again the next day.
rhis went on for a week until I finally
managed to get a real person on the
phone. She said min drug test was posi-
tive and I was ineligible for employment.
I protested and asked for a re-test. She
said they wouldn't do that and the job
had already been given to someone else.
Now I am in the job market again and
rightly am concept ned about drug testing.
I still don't know what caused my false
positive. I've researched the issue and
found that cold medicines, pain'reliev-
ers. prescription medication and e\-en
an individual's normal body chemistry
could cause a false positive.
So here's my dilemma: If I should be
offered a job contingent upon a drug test
and I decline to take the test, I won't get

That is a major conundrum of many con-
tracts when do you play your trump cards?
There are two guidelines. First, if your loser
count is not more than you can afford, draw
trumps as quickly as possible. Second, if
trumps are breaking badly, you usually do best
not to touch them but until you start trumps,
you will not know that they are splitting unfa-
vorably! It is a Catch-22. If you are missing the
trump ace, think three times about immediate-
ly leading a trump. Check that the opponents
cannot do something unfriendly.
South is in four spades. West leads the heart
queen. The defenders take two heart tricks,
then shift to a diamond. How should declarer
continue? North was -right to blast into four
spades with so many trumps and relatively few
points. East was tempted to make a takeout
double, but five hearts doubled would have
cost 500.
South is faced with four losers: one spade,
two hearts and one diamond. He must elimi-
nate that diamond loser. So, before touching
trumps, he must try to take three club tricks.
This requires playing a club to dummy's king,
followed by a club to his jack. When the finesse
works, declarer discards dummy's remaining
diamond on the club ace. Finally ft is time to
play a trump.
