Hancock

Bankto

give county

$500,00 loan

Will help finance purchase,
of Marianna building
BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbuckhalter@jcfloridan.com
Jackson County Commissioners have
decided on a lender to partially finance
their .purchase of the building which
houses the .state attorney's office in
Marianna.
Hancock Bank won the bid, offering
a 2.04 percent fixed interest rate on a,
$500,000 loan to be paid baack,over 10
years. That was the lowest bid submit-
ted. Commissioners approved the deal
in their first-of-the-month session
Tuesdaymorning.
The county is buying the building .,
for $925,000, and will make a -$425.000
down-payment v.th money it had orig-
inally been .saving to build rie\i aed-
r inisrave office complex. That fund
l-d! be rep!eniished over rime, commis-
Sio iner, aid in a predous meeting.
T the county will hive paid almost
S$5. 000 in interest over the 10 yeais, but
c A3n pa, orf eal milith-ut penralry.
To pay otl the principal and interest,
the county plans to use the rent it will
realize from its downstairs tenant and
from savings it will realize in being the
owner rather than a renter.
The county has been renting the up-
stairs portion of the two-story building
to house the state attorney, providing
that space at it is required to do under
state law. The county's monthly rent
was $2,800. State probation and parole
rents the downstairs space for $5,610,
and recently signed a five-year renewal
on that lease.
Although the county, plans to use its
saved rent and the income from pro-
bation and parole to finance the loan;
commissioners agreed Tuesday to also
list as collateral some of the income it
receives fromWaste Management asthe'
host county for that company's landfill
near Campbellton..,
The lender, commissioners were told,
wanted that extra stability in the agree-
ment since the loan is for 10 years and-
the probation income is only certain for
five.

Jackson Hospital introduces



emergency room addition


The new Jackson Hospital Emergency Room was packed with visitors Tuesday as people came out for tours and the ribbon-cutting
ceremony for the facility. It was part of a $7.5 milllion expansion and renovation project at the hospital.

Extra space will 'streamline the whole ER process'


BY LAUREN DELGADO
idelgado@jcfloridah.com


Jackson Hospital introduced the ad,-
dition to its emergency room, a 3,863-
square-foot facility that is part of the
hospital's $7.5 million renovation and
expansion. .
The addition adds nine rooms to the
eight rooms already in the E.R.
"I'm looking forward to working in
a place that's not cramped and- crazy,"
. said Dr. Murray Baker, head of the
emergency room.
Besides a fresher aesthetic and ad-
ditional space, the -new section also


brings in some new features.
Thirty-two active physicians are on
staff now partially because of the addi-.
tional space and partially to fill a need,
said Rosie Smith, hii,_piul spokes-
woman. The hospital wants patients to
be able to see their primary care doctor
and any referrals allin one place. "'
.."We know that we want to respond,
to the community and.have what they
need,", Smith said.
Chief Nursing Officer Leann David-
son said the addition now combines
FastTrack with the emergency room,
making patient transition between the
two faster.


"It's going to streamline the whole ER
process," Davidson said.
The emergency room also utilizes
some other technology to make it fast-
er and easier for personnel .to treat pa-
tients. A vacuum tube system sends lab
requests and results to and from the
laboratory, eliminating the need for
personnel to have to run back and forth
for-information critical to patients.
An electronic medical record system
-has eliminated paper records in the
hospital. Now, Davidson said," doc-
tors and nurses could see a chart and

Martin Luther King events abound in Jackson County


BY LAUREN DELGADO
Idelgado@jcfloridan.com

With Martin Luther King Jr.
Day less than a week away, local
churches, NAACP members and
community members are or-
ganizing and rehearsing for the
weekend's events.
A block party, sponsored by the
Northwest Florida Chapter of
FAMU tAlumni Association, will
be held from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on
Saturday on Orange Street be-
tween Hannah and St. Andrews
streets in Marianna. '
The MLK Jr. Gospel Youth


Explosion will be held on Jan. 14
from 5 to 7 p.m. with songs, skits
and monologues
having to do with
Martin Luther
.: King Jr., and other
:. African-American
leaders. Sorey said
she noticed Mar-
Rose tin Luther King Jr.
Day events were
usually geared to older people.
"I just wanted to have some-
thing to get (young people) in-
volved and have them relive and
embrace the legacy of Dr. Martin
Luther King," Sorey said.


Jamaal Rose, a political sci-
ence/pre-law student from Flor-
ida Agricultural Mechanical Uni-
versity, will be a guest speaker.
In addition to the showv, booths
will be setup for visitors to pe-
ruse. The NAACP, an HIVpreven-
tion group, voters registration,
and SWAT (Students Working
Against Tobacco), will all have
booths where people can ask
questions or take information.
"Some people don't know that
these things exist in Jackson
County," Sorey said.
The Gospel Youth Explosion
will take place at the Second


West Association Building at
2255 Herring St. in Marianna.
On Monday, a breakfast will be
held at St. James A.M.E. Church
at 7:30 a.m. During the break-
fast, two people will be recog-
. nized, one as the grand marshal
for the parade and the other for
his or her community service
involvement, said Rev. Ronald
Mizer, pastor of St. James A.M.E.
Church. The guest speaker
for the breakfast will be local
attorney LaDray Gilbert.
"He's homegrown and he's very
active in community service
in the Marianna and Jackson


County community," Rev. Mizer
said of.choosing Gilbert.
. Following the. breakfast will
be a parade starting at 10 a.m.
Lineup will be next to the Jack-
son County Courthouse, said
one of the parade's organizers,
Angela McFarland. The parade
will move west to its final stop at
Wynn Street. Several organiza-
tions and churches will be fea-
tured in the parade. Anyone still
interested in participating in the
parade can call Rev. Mizer at 526-
3440 or McFarland at 693-1553.

Gambling



interests hold



strong hand
By The Tampa Tribune
Gambling opponents in Florida were already
facing a tough fight this legislative session
against the well-financed push for casino
resorts in South Florida..
Then, from an unexpected direction, things got
worse. In a quiet ruling released the Friday before
the Christmas weekend, the U.S. Justice Depart-
ment cracked open the door for Internet gam-
bling, and a small crack may be all the powerful
industry needs to muscle its way into homes far.
and wide.
Those who value Florida's wholesome image are
going to have a tough challenge overcoming this o
year's case of gambling fever.
But the battle against opening the floodgates to
gambling is worth fighting; Some history: A half-
century ago, Congress had the good sense to ef-
fectively ban gambling done over the telephone.
The law has worked well to deter bookmakers
and limit the gaming industry to states \-here it is
invited to operate.
When Internet gambling began gaining popular-
ity, a 2006 lawv updated the 1961 Wire Act. The.
change prohibits gambling businesses from tak-
ing bets from people over the Internet, if placing
those bets violates other federal or state laws.
The new law built on the foundation of the,
old one, and now that foundation appears to be
cracking.if not collapsing. Written long before the
Internet, the 1961 law failed to anticipate today's
wired and wireless world. It made it a crime to
use wire communication to assist betting on "any.
sporting event or contest, or for the transmission
of wire communication which entitles the recipi-
ent to receive money orc credit as a result of bets
or wages."
Until Dec. 23, that was interpreted to cover all
interstate betting on the Internet. Now the federal
interpretation is that a state may put lottery op-
erations online within that state, because the old
lawwas just about sporting events.
Gambling interests are celebrating because they
correcdy anticipate that states wilU be happy to
exploit the Internet. Neit would come nem:orks
of states, then the whole country.
Florida leaders have been talking about try-
ing to squeeze more money out of the lottery for
education. If they make the mistake of taking the
lottery,onto the internet, stopping other games .
from following will be hard, if not impossible.
The tax revenue involved, with no need for a
visible'tax increase, will be, a huge temptation for
state lawmakers everywhere.
Once a state offers online games, it will have
no incentive at all to make sure players' bets
come only from within their state boundaries.
And once states are. gambling on the Internet,,
other legal operations, such as that of'the Semi-
nole Tribe, will demand to do it too. And if the
old law applies only to sports, highly addictive.
video poker and such games would appear to be
uncovered.71 :
Some online gambling is al read y done but is lim-
ited by federal laws. One law discourages credit
card companies from participating in online
casinos. Poker sites warn customers that some
credit cards won't work. But many other ways
have been found to separate gamblers from their
' cash, including a direct money transfer from the
customer's bank to the online casino.
However it is happening, global online gam-
bling is expanding. Type "online poker sites" -
into Google and you get 12.3 million hits. But
should the current cloud of legal uncertainty in
the United States be lifted from online gambling,
the tsunamiof promotional advertising would
swamp the country. The potential damage is hard
to calculate. The. addictive game would beckon '
from everywhere'an Internet connection is
available.
If the states take a cut, revenue would pour in.
But let's remember that money would be pouring
out of the bank accounts of ordinary folks who
would have less to spend on everything else.
Congress in 1961 realized the social ills that
would follow unfettered bookmaking by tele-
phone. Of course they didn't think to ban tele-
phones in visual card games because no one
would be gullible enough to play poker blindly
over the phone.
Much has changed since, but human nature is
the same. Historic increases in opportunities to
gamble will increase the number of gamblers and
big-time losers.
The burden is on Florida and other states to
hold the door shut that the Justice Department
has unlocked. Once the games begin, there is
little chance of stopping them.

Protecting Grand Canyon



is a grand decision for all


BY BONNIEERBE
.:rq-,l:.: H.:. j.. rd [|,,.: ..,[ .I,0e

Trrhere is this game that is
played every time control of
lthe White.House shifts from
one parry to the other. it probably
happens in all federal agencies, butt
I have followed it most closely at
the Department of the Interior.
When a D)emocratic admin-
istration is in porter, it issues '.
regulations to save more land from
de elopment. \'hen a Republi-
can administration is in potter.
it undoes the work of the prior
Democratic administration to open
up the land to commercial inter-
ests. whether for drilling or mining
or development and so on. Then
it proceeds to open tip or sell off
more federal land. TIhen the Demo-
cratic administration proceeds to
protect the land left unprotected by
the GOP. and so it goes.
This week theWhite House rook
abold stand, a rare event for this
White House, as interior Secretary
Ken Salazar announced a ban on
new hard-rock mining claims on
a million acre.' near the Grand
Canyon National Park. The now-
protected land is rich in high-grade
uranium ore reserves..
Democrats argue the Grand
Canyon is a national icon that must
be protected against the eventual-.
ity that a mining disaster could ,


destroy parts of the canyon or pol- -
line the Colorado River that flows '
through it.
Republicans cry the 20-year ban
will cost our energy-hungry nation
billions of dollars x or-h of uranium
ore and block the creation of 465
jobs. But they ignore the economic
engine that is the national park.
That engine could be destroyed
by a mining accident. particularly
one involving radiation. The park'
attracts more than 4 million visitors
each year and generates $3.5 billion
in regional income.
The Associated Press reports that.
because of the ban. "state, local and
federal governments are expected
to lose an estimated $16.6 million
in annual tax revenue, and 465
jobs w told not materialize.' Quite
frankly, the projected lost t.x re --
enue is nothing compared to what
the park generates. Nobody wants
to lose jobs in a downturn, but 465
is a fraction of the jobs that could
be lost if mining accident %were to
shut down the park.
There is also one other major
factor at stake that I believe Re-
publicans ignore at their peril. The
Colorado River is the major water
source for 26 million Americans in
seven states. It is also the principal
xIter source for Phoenix and Los
Angeles and three large agricultural
alleys in California, includingthe
Imperial Valley. Can you imagine'


the impact of a mining accident
along the Colorado? Itwpuld be
catastrophic. It is unfathomable to
try to envision no water for 26 mil-
lion people and the businesses that
serve them, .as well as food produc-
tion brought ro a halt at some of the
nation's most important growing
centers.
President Theodore Roosevelt,
father of the national park sys-
tem and, of course, a Republican,
tried but failed to name the Grand
Canyon a national park. So he gave
it the stars of a national monu- .
ment instead. It was designated a,
national park after he left office.
When he, dedicatedthe gateway
to Yellowstone in 1903, Roosevelt ,
praised the national parks' "es-
sential democracy." in that they
presence wilderness and scenery
:for the people as a wholee"
It's a sad, sad commentary on
today's GOP that party leaders
have either forgotten or shed their
TR roots. Luckily for the Grand
Canyon, the Obama administration
is finally taking a bold stand on a
matter of great importance to our
environment and to the 26 million
Americans who rely on.the Colo-
rado for water. Taking a bold stand
is something this administration
does all too rarely.

BY DALE MCFEATTERS
Scripps Howard News Service

Iran's parliamentary
elections are March
2, and this week the
slate of candidates will
be announced, after the
Council of Guardians
prunes it of serious politi-
cal opponents.
This election will be as
rigged as the 2009 presi-
dential election, and the
increasingly embattled
clerical regime is bracing
for the same kind of mass
antigovernment demon-
strations that followed the
fixed ballot.
And that is one key rea-
son why Iran has stepped
up its threats to close
the Strait of Hormuz,
the bottleneck exit from
the Persian Gulf through
which flows one-sixth of
the world's oil.
The Strait is interna-
tional waters, and free
passage, including of war-
ships, is guaranteed by
international law. None-
theless, following a visit-to
the Gulf by the U.S. Navy
carrier Stennis, Iran's mili-
tary chief warned that the
American warship should
not return to the Gulf.
"The Islamic Republic will
not repeat its warning,"
he said.


That would be a nice.
change since Iran is con-
tinually making threats
so far idle ones and
it almost guarantees that
at some stage we'll have
to send a carrier into the
Gulf if only to assert our
right to do so.
However, the fact of the
threat is extremely reveal-
ing, a demonstration
that for the first time the
clerical regime is genu-
inely alarmed, both by its
own people made restive
by the ayatollahs' repres-
sive ways and the nation's
tanking economy.
Now, for the first time,
the regime faces sanc-
tions, in response to its
stepped-up nuclear pro-
gram, which will genu-
inely bite. The U.S. would
punish companies and
countries that finance oil
purchases through the
Iranian Central Bank, the
customary means of pay-
ing for such transactions.
And the European Union
is now threatening to cut
off Iranian oil purchases
altogether.
Iran, U.S. military plan-
ners concede, has the
capabilities to close off
the Strait for a while
using mines, missiles and
torpedoes. But, Gen. Mar-
tin Dempsey, chairman


of the Joint Chiefs of Staff,
said, "We've invested in
the capabilities to ensure
if that happens, we can
defeat that."
Not onlywould the U.S.
'force Iran to reopen the.
Strait, but the simple act
of closing it in the first
place would cost the
Iranians their traditional
support from China and
Russia. And it would give
theWest the opportunity
to go after Iran's nuclear
facilities, much to the
relief of the other Gulf
nations.


Oil sales account for 80
percent of Iran's revenues.
In the event of.an em-.
bargo, Iran would suffer
far more than any of its
customers, who in any
case have increasingly
sought backup suppliers
elsewhere.
As a member of the
international community,
Iran has many faults, but
being suicidally stupid
does not seem to be one
of them.

Scott still struggling Distemper outbreakin a
withilow pollnumbers atanimaishelter Scott stresses cooperation in address


TALLAHASSEE Gov.
Rick Scott remains pretty
much under water with
Florida voters.
A new poll released
Tuesday by Quinnipiac
University showed 38 per-
cent of the 1,412 regis-
tered voters responding
on a random telephone
survey taken between Jan.
4-8 gave the first-term
Republican a positive job
approval compared to 50
percent who rated Scott's
job performance negative-
ly. The poll has a margin of
error of plus or minus 2.6
percentage points.
The 38 percent approval
rating though was the
best Scott has received
since taking office a year
ago and better than the
Legislature, which was
seen positively by a third
of respondents compared
to 49 percent negative.

Boy, 3, badly burned
in bonfire
LOXAHATCHEE Fire
officials say a 3-year-old
boy was severely burned
after he tripped and fell
into a bonfire outside
his family's Palm Beach
County home.
The incident happened
about 10:15 p.m. Monday
in Loxhatchee, which is
west of West Palm Beach.
The Palm Beach Post
reports the child's grandfa-
ther pulled him out of the
fire and called for help.
The child was flown to
St. Mary's Medical Center
with burned on his hands,
face and leg. He was then
transferred to Jackson
* Memorial Hospital Burn
Center in Miami.
The newspaper reports
the Florida Department
of Children and Families
has been notified of the
incident.

Praise, concern for
NCLB waiver request
TALLAHASSEE Flor-
ida's application for relief
from the arduous No Child
Left Behind law is be-
ing met with both praise,
and concern by federal
officials.
The U.S. Department of
Education says Florida's
waiver request is strong in
plans to ensure students
are college and career
ready. It also commended,
the state's school grading
system.
But a panel of seven
peer reviewers also found
several areas in need
of improvement. The
reviewers note the waiver
application doesn't fully
document how English
language learners and
other subgroups will be
factored in school rating
calculations..They also
highlight the low empha-
sis on-graduation rates in
factoring a high school's
grade.
The concerns were
raised in a letter sent to
Education Commissioner
Gerard Robinson in De-
cember. Officials say they
are working to respond to
the feedback.

Miami-Dade animal shel-
ter say 23 dogs have come

The Miami Herald
reports the shelter has
suspended adoptions and
drop-offs in light of the

Officials say dogs that
have beenrxeently ad-
opted from the shelter can
receive free vaccinations
if they show symptoms of
distemper. Symptoms in-
clude runny nose or eyes,
coughing, fever, lethargy,
vomiting and diarrhea.
The vaccinations are
offered Monday through
Saturday from 10 a.m. to
3 p.m.

TALLA-HASSEE Gov.: Rick Scott
toldlawmakers in his second Staie of
the State address Tuesday that Flor-
ida needs to continue to snrearr -n-
ing government, cutting corporate
taxes and eliminating regulations in
an effort to help existing businesses
grow and to lure more here.
But unlike last year, when the
former CEO began his first term in
elected office dictating the agenda,
his new theme this year is coopera-
tion. He's adding a new word to a fa-
miliar catchphrase used during his
campaign and first year in office.
."Let's get to work together,"
Scott's said at the end of his 34-min-
ute speech.
"I'm open to any idea from what-
ever source that is likely to improve
the lives of Floridians," the Republi-
can governor said. "No person, pro-
fession or party has a monopoly on
all the good ideas. The commitment
I make to those here today is to keep
open and clear lines of communica-
tion so that together our time in the
Capitol can best be spent in the ser-
vice of those who sent us here."
While Scott has a new attitude, the
ideas are largely the same. He's ask-
ing lawmakers to make the state as
business friendly as possible, saying
that the two things companies need
most to grow are money and time.
"Taxes and regulations. They are
the great destroyer of capital and
time for small business," Scott said.
"When growth slows in small busi-
nesses, what happens? Jobs are the
first casualties. So this session, we
need to lower lower burden-
some taxes on small businesses and
continue our mission of slashing,
red tape in Florida."
The comment earned extended
applause by the Republican law-
makers that dominate each. cham-
ber.After\ard, Republicans said the
speech shows Scott is growing into
his role as governor.
"He clearly is, I think, getting com-
fortable and sort of finding hi- uoice
for the future," said House Speaker
Dean Cannon, R-Winter Park. "The
hallmark of a good leader is they
have their own0\ vision for where to
go but they are open to other ideas.
Especially in oui tinee-branch gov-
ernment collaboration is a neces-
.sary element and I think he's fully

Legislative Session in Tallahassee.


embraced that."
Scott touted job growth numbers
over the past year, saying Florida
has added 135,000 private sector
jobs and an overall total of more
than 120,000 when government job
cuts are factored in.
Scott is proposing to raise the
exemption for corporate income
taxes and is giving lawmakers a list
of regulations he believes should be
eliminated. And while he's calling
for cooperation, he said there's one
thing that's not negotiable.
"My recommended budget in-
cludes $1 billion'in new state fund-
ing for education. I ask each of you
to take my recommendation very
carefully," Scott said. "On this point,
I just can't budge."
While Democrats say they agree
the .state needs to spend more on
education, they criticized Scott for
seeking, the increase at the expense
of health care programs like Medic-
aid. They also pointed out that Scott
and Republicans cut education
spending last year...
"His new emphasis on education.
is more about poll numbers," said
Sen. Arthenia loiner, D-Tampa. "It's
the money that we cut last year that
he wants to put back in this year.
There was no hue and cry last year,
to fund education at a decent level,
but the people hai e spoken and his
numbers are lo\\ and you dor what ill
necessary to be more in favor with
the folks."
Scott noted that Florida's popula-
tion is growing and that it \\ill soon
pas Ne-w York to become the third-


largest state in the nation. He then
compared the two states in an argu-
ment why Florida is a better place to
live and do business.
"To all of our friends in New York,
come on down!" Scott said. "As I
stand here today, our temperature
outdoors is about twice as high as
yours, and your tax burden per citi-
zen is about twice as high as ours,"
Scott said. "The state of New York,
which has just about the same pop-
ulation as Florida does, has a budget
roughly twice as large as ours."
Scott also stressed the need to
crack down on auto insurance fraud
that leads to higher personal injury
protection coverage.
"If we are going to be serious
about keeping the cost of living low
for Floridians, we have to get tough
on the fraud and abuse in the auto
insurance system," Scott said. "It's
the consumers in our state that we
need to protect, not trial lawyers
and not the others involved in these
schemes."
Scott's speech marked the first
day of the Legislature's 60-day ses-
sion. It's being held two months
earlier this year as lawmakers draw
new political maps for state and
congressional districts. Scott noted
the addition of redistricting to an
already packed: agenda and urged
lawmakers to remain courteous.
He did not, however, mention one
of the other large items being con-
sidered this session- a proposal to
allowx destination casinos in South
Florida. It's an issue that Scott plans
to watch, but not wade into.


Occupy Florida greets opening of Legislature


Th,--:,-P:itd Press

TALLLHA SSEE Doz-
ens of Occupy Florida
demonstrators made the
most of their one moment
to confront Florida Gov.
Rick Scott before his State
of the State address.
The address was to
House and Senate law-
makers as they began their
2012 legislative session on
Tuesday. As, Scott emerged
from a side hallway and
walked into the House
chambers, :the protesters
were ready
"Hey Rick Scott," one
man shou ted, immediate-
ly followed by a chorus of
"We are the 99 percent!"
Then, the crowd on the
fourth floor of the Capitol
got even louder.
"Pink slip ... Rick Scott!"
they called out. -
The first-term Republi-
can governor glanced over
and smiled without break-
ing his stride. "You have
to face the people eventu-
ally!" another man in the
crowd yelled.
Later, Scott joked about
the brief confrontation
before his address, saying
he didn't need to be intro-
duced because "the people


out-ide already did."
f.ter the doors to the
House closed, the Occu-
piers continued to chant
in the call-and-response
style the\ use to make sure
all their members hear
what is being said.
Earlier that morning,
Occupiers had been upset
over being denied entry to
the House gallery where
the public can watch floor,
proceedings.
'"\\e need to be heard
but we can't even get into
the gallery," said Occupy
Tallahassee member Tay-
lobr Kipatrick of Boynton
Beach, a Florida State Uni-
versity sophomore.
Katherine Betta, a
spokeswoman for Repub-
lican House Speaker Dean
Cannon, said that gallery
seating on opening day is
available only by invita-
tion of a House member.
Instead, Occupiersstood
in the; rotunda, singing
and holding the now-fa-
miliar signs that read 'We
Are the 99%" and "People
Over Profits."
They also handed out
leets on grievances
that included the need for
open government, better
public education and fair


wages. Even a couple of
passers-by wearing Flor-
ida Tea Parry hats and T-;
shirts could be seen with
the fliers stuffed in their
back pockets.
'In the afternoon. Occu-
piers and other progres-
sites held a rally on the
steps of the Old Capitol,
the same spot where tea
partyers- had tallied the
year before.
The rally, sponsored
by the pro-union Awake
the State, coalition, was
somewhat smaller than a
similar one they had held
across the street on the
Leon County Courthouse
lawn on last year's open-
ing day.
One Occupier who iden-
tified himself only as Tony
of Austin, Texas, said he's

now traveled to a dozen
states to "lend.a helping
hand" in organizing local
Occupy movements.
"We're .all, looking for
a little hope but it's very
clear it's hot going to be
legislated for us," he said...
Another Occupier from
South Florida called Ju-
lian said he understood
why some people irii-
tially dismiss the Occupy
movement.
"We talk about very per-
sonal things politics,
economics that people
deal with on a daily ba-
sis," he said. "People feel
threatened when some-
one says something differ-
ent from.their perception.
But we, have to acknowl-
edge our differences and
agree to discuss them."

JACKSON COUNTY FLORIDAN www.jcfloridan.com


County considers ATM machine for courthouse


BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
dbuckha iter"q ffdrisn-com

Jackson County Commissioners
are considering whether to allow
the installation of an ATM ma-
chine in the lobby of the county
courthouse in Marianna, and one
in the driver's license office west
of town.
The request was brought by
Jackson County Tax Collector
Sherry Brown, who said doing
so could cut down on frustration
for the public. She said she and


Clerk of Court Dale Guthrie often
encounter people who arrive at
their offices without enough cash
to cover the costs associated with
the business they're trying to con-
duct in those offices.
Frustrated cust,'Jmers m ut L.en.
leave, go to the bank, and come
back to the courthouse or driver's
license office to start over.
Brown brought a proposal from
ATM of Orlando, LLC. She said
Washington County officials have
installed a similar machine at the
courthouse in that neighboring


community and have reported
success with the arrangement.
T,-e company would get a 52
fee for each transaction, and the
county would need to provide an
electrical outlde and a telephone
line for the machine. The county
would have no further responsi-
bine-., she said.
Accordi-cg to a fact sheet pro-
vided in her presentation to the
board, commissioners would alsd
be able to increase this S2 sur-
charge and collect the overage as
county income. Board members


did not say whether they would
consider doing that.
The county board declined to
act on mater, saying legal review
of the ATN proposal is necessary
before a decision could be made.
Some questioned whether the
service should be offered for bid,
as well, rather than automatically
contracting with the company
Brown suggested. A question also
remains as to whether Brown
would contract with a provider
or whether it should be a county
contract.

Syrian president vows to crush 'conspiracy'


The Associated Press

BEIRUT By turns defi-
ant and threatening, Presi-
dent Bashar Assad vowed
Tuesday to use an "iron
hand" to crush what he
called the terrorists and
saboteurs behind Syria's
10-month-old uprising in
which thousands of people
have been killed.
In his first speech since
June, Assad showed a
steely confidence in the
face of the uprising, one of
the bloodiest of the Arab
Spring. But opponents
called it a rambling address
by a leader who-is danger-
ously out of touch.
Assad repeated his past
claims that a foreign con-
spiracy and terrorists are
driving the revolt, not
peaceful protesters seek-
ing to reform the country.
"We will not be lenient
with those 'who work
with outsiders against the
country," Assad said in'a
nearly two-hour speech
at Damascus University in
a conference hall packed


with cheering support-
ers. He also issued a veiled
threat against those who
have yet to choose sides.
"Those who stand in
the middle are traitors,"
Assad said, flanked by
Syrian flags. "There is no
alternative."
The conflict in Syria is
entering a new and height-
ened phase, with army de-
fectors and some members
of the opposition increas-
ingly turning their weap-
ons on government targets.
The regime, in turn, has in-
tensified an already deadly
military assault, and a
U.N. official said Tues-
day that about 400 people
have been killed in the last
three weeks alone, on top
of an earlier U.N. estimate
of more than 5,000 dead
since March.
'Since Dec. 23, three mys-
terious blasts have struck
the capital, killing scores
of people in the kind of
violence more commonly
seen in neighboring Iraq.
It's unclear who is behind
the bombings, which the

Bashar Assad deliver a speech at Damascus University, at a
coffee shop in Damascus, Syria, on Tuesday.


regime said were suicide
attacks.
The regime has blamed
"terrorists" for the explo-
sions, saying they proved
that Syria was fighting
armed gangs. But the op-
position accuses forces
loyal to the regime of carry-
ing out the attacks as away
to tarnish the uprising.
Assad also denounced
the Arab League, which
sent a team of observers
into Syria in late Decem-
ber to assess whether the


regime is abiding by an.
Arab-brokered peace plan
that .the regime agreed to
on Dec. 19. On Monday, a
group of Arab League ob'-
servers was reportedly at-
tacked in northern Syria,
suffering minor injuries.
New deaths were re-
ported Tuesday, with activ-
ists saying security forces
killed at least 10 people in
the eastern city of Deir el-
Zour, despite the presence
of an Arab observer mis-'
sion in thie area.


Assad, 46, inherited
power 11 years ago from
his father and has. adopted
tactics similar to those of
other autocratic leaders in
the region who scrambled
to put down uprisings by
unleashing a crackdown
on their people.
The formula failed in
Tunisia and Egypt, where
popular demands in-
creased almost daily- un-
til people accepted nothing
less than the ouster of the
regime. But Syria's conflict
has gone on far longer, and
the death toll is mounting
daily.
"We will declare victory
soon," Assad said, insisting
that he still has the sup-
port of his people. "When
I leave this post, it will be
also based upon the peo-
ple's wishes," he added.
He vowed a strong re-
sponse to any threats, set-
ting the sfage for more
violence.
* "Our priority now is to
regain the security w6
basked in for decades, and
this can only be achieved


by hitting the terrorists
with an iron hand," Assad
said.
Regime opponents de-
nounced the speech.
"Bashar is completely
removed from reality, as if
he is talking about a coun-
try other than Syria," said
Abu Hamnza, a Syria-based
activist who asked to be
identified only by his nick-
name because of fear of re-
prisals by the regime.
Syria has banned most
foreign journalists and
prevented independent
reporting, making activ-
ist accounts and amateur
videos posted online key
sources of information
about the uprising and
crackdown.
Assad accused foreign
media outlets and web-
sites of working against
Syria, even claiming that
an interview he gave to
ABC's Barbara Walters last
month was altered. He was
widely criticized for the in-
terview, in which denied
ordering the suppression
of the protests.


Anger emerges in Nigeria strike as unrest possible


The Associated Press

LAGOS, Nigeria Thick
black smoke and flames
rose Tuesday from the
burning roadblock that
cut off a highway linking
Nigeria's mainland to the
islands where the oil-rich
nation's wealthy live. The
bare-chested young men
who live under the bridge
said they had had enough.

Russia concerned about

Iran's uranium enrichment


The Associated Press

MOSCOW Russia ex-
pressed regret and con-
cern Tuesday about Iran's
launch of an underground
uranium enrichment fa-
cility, but urged all parties
involved in the nuclear
standoff with Tehran to
avoid hasty moves.
The Russian Foreign
Ministry's statement mixed
cautious criticism of Iran,
an important trading part-
ner, with a call for more
talks a fine line Moscow
has walked in the past.
The Foreign Ministry
said in a statement that
the launch of the facil-
ity near Iran's holy city of
Qom demonstrated that
Tehran was continuing to
ignore international 'con-
cerns about its nuclear
program. It added, how-
ever, that Iran had notified
the International Atomic
Energy Agency in due time
of the launch of the bunker
facility.
"We hope, that Tehran
will listen to our opinion
about the need for a further
close cooperation with the
agency and a quick start
of serious six-way talks on
Jthe Iranian nuclear pro-


gram without any precon-
ditions," it said.
The ministry said Rus-
sia was urging all parties
involved in the Iranian
nuclear standoff .to avoid
"ill-considered and abrupt
moves," which could un-
dermine prospects for
talks with Iran, an impor-
tant trading partner.
"We confirm that all
problems linked with the
Iranian nuclear, program
must be solved exclusively
through talks and dialogue
based on mutual respect,
gradual movement and
reciprocity," it said, adding
that Russia is ready to help
the negotiations.
Russia had tread a similar
path over recent years, al-.
ternating criticism of Iran's
intransigence with praise
for some of its moves and
readiness to continue the
dialogue. Iran has insisted
that its uranium enrich-
ment program is aimed at
civilian power generation
and research, but Western
nations suspect it of serv-
ing as a cover for a nuclear
weapons bid.
Britainrs Middle East min-
ister Alistair Burt called on
nations to increase pres-
sure against Tehran.

Lady Hornets latest victims for PDL


BY DUSTIN KENT
dkenti'jcfisrdan.,corm

The Cottondale Lady Hornets
failed Monday night to become
the first team from District 3-1A
to deal the Ponce De Leon Lady
Pirates a loss this season, falling
68-37 on the road.


With the win, PDL improved to
a perfect 8-0 in league compedi-
tion this year and 17-2 on the
road.
The Lady Pirates had won their
First 15 games of the season be-
fore falling to Cookeville (Ten.)
and Paxton over the Christmas
break.


But they bounced back last
week with a 59-10 win over We-
wahitchka, and blew open a rea-
sonably close game late Monday
night thank, largely to a spec-
tacular effort from senior post
player Jazz Flock, who scored 45
points.
Flock also fouled out almost


the entire frontcourt of Cotton-
dale, with senior center Freder-
icka V.Whiiml -who was coming off
of a triple-double performance
in a win over Bethlehem foul-
ing out in the third quarter.
Starting fonvard Brooklyne
Brown also fouled out for the
Lady Hornets with the team trail-


ing by a dozen points early in the
fourth period, and with no size
left to contend with Flock down
low, the Lady Pirates were able to
pull away easily.
"The wheels sort of fell off
for us in the fourth quarter,"

Andretti hires Hinchcliffe


to drive Go Daddy car


INDIANAPOUS James Hinchcliffe
5pen, it f .e weeks looking for ajob.
Now he's the new Go Daddy guy.
IndyCar's reigning rookie of the year
was hired Tuesday by '.. ch-ael an idretri,
becoming the replacement for Danica
Patrick, who left for NASCARinOctober.
The official announcement is scheduled
for Wednesday morning.
"Yes, I'm gainfully employed," Hinch-
cliffe joked in a phone interview w'_ithh
The Associated Press on Tuesda:y "It's a
great change of pace."
It's a good gig, too.
After posting three top-five finishes
and seven top-10s with Newman-Haas
Racing in 2011, edging out Indy 500.
runner-up JR Hildebrand for rookie of
the year, Hinchcliffe now joins one of
the best-funded and most successful
te-ams in the s.eries..
Andreari, drivers have won three
points titles and two Indy 500s though
the last of those big wins came in 2007.
Hinchclffe also faces the tall task of
replacing indyCar's most marketable
driver IPatricki and also will occupy the
cockpit :f a car that was originally sup-
. posed to go to two-time Indianapolis 500
rminer Dar \-Wheldon. Andretti, Whel-
don and Go Daddy officials reached
an agreement on a deal in October, but
W .heldon was killed in a tragic crash at
Las Vegas that prompted a two-momnth
lon, investigation into the fatahlty.
Based on factor.- such as team chem-


istry, ability to win, technical skills and
the ability to fit in on a big team, Andret-
ti Autosport got their top guy.
What really made the sale to Go Dad-
dy, though, was Hinchcliffe's affability.
The combination of a deep online
following and a charismatic, charming
personality were exactly what company
officials thought they needed to keep
the momentum in a post-Danica era.
Getting Hinchcliffe was a surprise,
too.
He was preparing for a second season
:at Newman-Haas Racing until team co-
owner Carl Haas made a surprise an-
nouncement Dec. 1 that he wouldn't
compete in IndyCars in 2012.
Suddenly, the rising Canadian star
was a free agent, and after enduring a
range of emotions over the past several
weeks, Hinchcliffe finally landed in a
-pot 'where he feels right at home.
"I've known Marco since we were 13
years old, and Ryan, (Hunter-Reay) is
one of the easiest guys to get along with
in the paddock," Hinchcliffe said. "It's' a
strong lineup and it's a perfect fit."
Hinchcliffe may not be the only one
trying to fit in with Andretti's team this
season.
Andretti has traditionally run four cars
and still has one open seat in the lineup.
Andretti hasn't provided details about
who that might be, but adding Hinch-
cliffe should help.
"He will definitely grow and thrive
with Andretti Autosport," Michael
Andretti said.

JACKSON COUNTY FLORIDAN + wwvvt.jcfloridan.com


WEDNESDAY. JANUARY11. 2012 3BF


back in November.
"Itfeltso goodto getthattouch-
down against LSU," lineman D.J.
Fluker said. "Thai's all we talked
about. We said we were going to
get (Richardson) a touchdown,
and we did it."
On LSU's one and only trip
into Alabama territory, the Ti-
gers quickly went back, back,
back the last gasp ending ap-
propriately with the beleaguered
Jefferson getting the ball jarred
from his hand before he could
even get off a fourth-and-forever
pass.
"We didn't do' a lot differ-
ent," Saban said. "We did some-
things on offense formationally.
Our offensive team did a great
job. Defensively, we just played
well, played the box. Our special
teams did a great job."
The coach has now won a pair
of BCS titles at Alabama, plus an-
other at LSU in 2003. He's the first
coach to win three BCS titles, de-
nying LSU's Les Miles his second
championship. The Tigers will
have to settle for the SEC title,
but that's not likely to ease the
sting of this ugly performance.
"I told my team that-it should
hurt," Miles said.
LSU simply couldn't do any-
thing running or passing.
Kenny. Hilliard led the Tigers
with 16 yards rushing, while Jef-
ferson was 11 of 17 passing for
53 yards, usually hurrying away
passes before he was sent tum-
bling to theSuperdome turf. He
was sacked four times-and threw
a mystifying interception hlien
he attempted to flip away a des-
peration pass, only to have it
picked off because his intended
receiver had already ruined up-
field looking to block.

The Associated Press

NEWO)RLE._NS -As required,
Alabama's players whooped it
up amid the confetti and fire-
works, yet there was something
muted about this championship
celebration.
Turns out, these guys knew the
ending to the sequel before they
even got to the Big Easy.
For two months, the Crimson
Tide stewed over its first meet-
ing with top-ranked LSU. By the
time the team touched down
in New Orleans, there was little
doubt in anyone's mind about
the outcome. Not just win, but
dominate.
Boy, did they ever.
With a smothering display of
old-school football, No. 2 Ala-
bama blew out the Tigers 21-0
in the BCS championship game
Monday night, celebrated a bit
.and headed back to Tuscaloosa
with its second national title in
three years.
SStraight-laced coach Nick Sa-
ban accepted the trophies Tues-
day morning and confessed that.
he might have savored it more
than the title twVo years ago in
Pasadena, Calif.
"To be lionest with you, I think
I maybe did," said Saban, sport-
ing a black sweater with patches
of crimson on the shoulders and.
flanked by the hardware. "This
team was a special team, not
that the 2009 team was any dif-
ferent. It's certainly an honor and
privilege to be with a group that
made the kind of commitment
that you look for from a compet-
itive characterstandpoint."
The Crimson Tide'also claimed
the top spot in the final Associat-
ed Press poll for the eighth time,
tying Notre Dame for the most
of any team in.college football.
Alabama was an overwhelming
choice with 55 of 60 fhst-place
votes.,
"We knew what we were capa-
ble of.' offensive Lneman Barrett
Jones said. "I guess that's kind of
arrogant, bit it's the way \ve felt.
WVe felt like \%e were capable of


dominating, andwe did that."
Credit one of the greatest de-
fenses in college football history,
a bunch of NFL-readv players
such as Courtney Upshaw and
Dont'a Hightower who made
sure LSU (13-1) never had a
chance.
WhenJordanJeffersondropped
back to pass, he was swept un-
der by a tide of crimson. When
the LSU quarterback took off
running, he must've feltlike Ala-
bama had a few extra players
on the field. It sure seemed that
way.
"It feels like a nightmare," Jef-
ferson said. "We just didn't getit
done on offense. Some defenses:
have your number, and MAlabama
had our number."
LSU beat the Crimson Tide112-
i in overtime on Nov. 5, a so-
called Game of the Cenrury that
was roundly criticized as a dud
because neither team .cored a
toichdo\in.
The Rematch of the Century
was ne: after .kabanma worked


its way back up to second in the
rankings to claim a spot in the
BCS title game. Turns out, it was
even less of a classic than the first
meeting, much closer to "Speed
2" than the "Godfather II."
But the Alabama defense was a
thing of beauty, putting its own
spin on this postseason of high-
scoring shootouts.
"They are unbelievable," said
Jones, relieved that he only has
to'go against them in practice.
"That defense is as good as any
defense I've ever seen. They rush
the passer, they have awesome
lirnebacters and they're great in
coverage. They real don't have
a.y weaknesses. Their have to be
as good as any defense ever."
LSU didn't cross mnidfield until
there were less than 8 minutes
remaining in the game. The Ti-
gerts finished with just 9!2 yards
and live first downs, on the
wrong end of the first shutout in
thie BCS' 14-year historic.
"This defense is built on stop-
ping them, and that's what we


did," said Upshaw, the game's
defensive MVP. "We wanted to
c o m e o u t and show the world we
beat ourselves the first game. We
wanted to come out and domi-
nate from start to finish, and
that's what we did."
The Crimson Tide, piling up
384 yards and 21 first downs,
spent much of the night in LSU's
end of the field, setting up Jere-
my Shelley to attempt a bowl-re-
cord seven field goals. He made
five of them, matching a bowl
record. Then, as if responding to
all the critics who complained'
that an offensive powerhouse
such as Oklahoma State or Stan-
ford should've gotten a shot in
the title game, Alabarna finally
made a long-overdue trip to the
end zone.
\With l4:36 remaining, Heisnman
finalist Trent Richardson broke
off a .4-Nard touchdown run.
it was the lone TD that either
,of the Southeastern Conference
pow-erhouses man;ldged over two
games, plus that overtime period

Dear Annie. I am increasingly disgusted
by my dad. He is obese and getting big-
ger, and he won't stop eating. He and mi
mother recently stayed in our ornome or
a long w\etekend. \\ len \\e ent. out t0or
breaktasq, Dad ordered enough tood to1
teed thtiee people steak, eggs, hash
bro-\is. toast and biscuits and gravy.
He ate all of that and half of my son's
pancakes. t .
It is like he i addicted to a dru. Even
Vhen he orders a salad., he dtenLches itin
so much creamy die-sshig that it negates
the health benefits. At night, he raids
the kitchen. He ate _o marry of miy kids'
lunch snacks that I started storing them
in the bottom cabinets, since he can't
bend over to reach them. He also cannot
cut his iow\n toenails and gets winded
playing with his grandchildren.
I already have suggested that he start
taking little walks, but he insists he has
genetically bad knees as opposed to
having bad knee, fron-m the extra 200
pounds he carries around. He recently


Today we are looking at the truth in deals
requiring the discard of a loser by declarer. As-
suming declarer's hand contains more trumps
than the dummy, he looks at his 13 cards, notes
dummy's high cards, and works out how many
tricks he might lose. Then, if he finds too many,
he tries to eliminate those he cannot afford.
West leads the diamond queen against sev-
en spades. How should South play? After two
clubs, artificial and strong, and two diamonds,
artificial and weak, the auction was natural un-
til South used two doses of Blackwood.
Taking'a discard is one common way to re-
move a loser. But what is the difference be-
tween discarding a loser from hand and a loser
from dummy? If declarer discards a loser from
his hand, that is the end of his worries. But if
he pitches a loser from the dummrhy, he still has
a loser in his hand, which must then be ruffed
in the dummy- it is a two-step process, which
happens here.
South wins the first trick in the dummy, draws
two rounds of trumps, leaving dummy's king
intact, and cashes his three heart tricks, dis-
carding a diamond from the dummy. He takes
the diamond ace and ruffs his last diamond
with the board's spade king. Declarer returns to
his hand with a club, draws East's last trump,
and claims.

I know my mom is disgusted, too,
but Dad is incredibly stubborn. I think
he also has been depressed since my,
brother died in Afghanistan. Just being in
*his presence now irritates the daylights
ouf of me. What are we to do?
DISGUSTED BYTHE GLUTTON

Dear Disgusted: Dad already feels ,
worthless, so instead of anger and
disgust, try compassion. You are right
about this being a form of addiction,
'which means it is extremely hard for Dad
to control his food cravings. We think
you will have better luck working on his
depression, which can interfere with his
willingness to become healthier. Enlist
your mother's help to encourage Dad to
see his doctor about the possibility of
medication.

Oakland Raiders fire coach Hue Jackson


Coach fired after one year at the helm


ALAMEDA, Calif. The
Oakland Raiders fired
coach Hue Jackson on
Tuesday after just one
season at the helm in the
first major move since
Reggie McKenzie was hired
as general manager.
The decision to get rid
of Jackson came four days
after the team announced
the hiring of McKenzie
as the team's first general
manager since the death
of longtime owner Al Davis
in October. McKenzie was
to be formally introduced
later Tuesday.
The firing was confirmed
byapersonwithknowledge
of the situation. It was first
reported by ESPN.
The move marks a rapid
fall for Jackson, who was
in charge, of personnel
decisions and coaching
after Davis died of heart
failure on Oct. 8.
Jackson made the trade
for quarterback Carson
Palmer after starter Jason
Campbell broke his
collarbone, costing the
Raiders a 2012 first-round
draft pick and a conditional


2013 second-rounder.
While Palmer showed
signs of giving the Raiders
a big-time quarterback, he
was unable to get Oakland
to the playoffs for the first
time since 2002, raising
questions about how
effective that trade was.
After starting the season
7-4, the Raiders lost four
of their final five games to
mark their ninth straight
season without a winning
record or a playoff berth. A
late-game collapseathome
to Detroit on Dec. 18 and a
38-26 loss to San Diego at
home in the season finale
did in the Raiders and
ultimately Jackson.
Owner Mark Davis, Al's
son, made the decision
to bring in. McKenzie
last week and gave him
the authority over the
coaching staff. McKenzie
will now get to pick a new
head coach, providing the
Raiders a fresh start in their
first full season without Al
Davis involved since 1962.
Jackson talked at the end
of the season about having
more involvement in 2012,
but instead he will have
none.


'I'm going take a stronger
hand in This ',,%hole ieam,
this whole organization."
he said after the season
finale. "There's no way that
I'm going to feel like I feel
today a year from now. I
promise you that. There's
no question. Defensively,
offensively and special
teams. I'm nor feeling like
this no more. This is a
joke."
Jackson joined the
Raiders as offensive
coordinator in 2010 under
head coach Tom Cable
and engineered a dramatic
improvement as Oakland
more than doubled its
point total and improved
to 8-8. That helped him get
thejobwhenDavis decided
not to retain Cable.
The offense wasn't quite
as effective with Jackson as
head coach as injuries to
star running back Darren
McFadden, receiver Jacoby
Ford and Campbell played
apart.
But the biggest problem
this past season was on the
defensive side of the ball.
The Raiders had franchise
worsts in touchdown
passes allowed (31), yards
per carry (5.1), yards
passing (4,262) and total


Son of Packers coordinator



found in Wisconsin river


, The Associated Press

OSHKOSH, Wis. -Police
have recovered the body
of Green Bay Packers of-
fensive coordinator Joe
Philbin's son from an icy
Wisconsin river and said
Tuesday that they were
trying to figure out how he
died.
Michael T. Philbin,. 21,
disappeared early Sunday'
and was reported missing
that night. His body was
recovered from the Fox
River by divers on Monday,
but Oshkosh Police Chief
Scott Greuel waited a :day
to release the name out
of respect for the family's
privacy.
News of Philbin's death
comes as the'Packers -are
preparing to host the New
YorkGiarits irt anNFCplay-
off game Sunday. The team
canceled players' media
availability Monday short-
ly before Philbin's body
was found. Packers gen-
eral manager Ted Thomp-
son issued a statement
Tuesday saying the team's


thoughts and prayers were
with the family.
"This is an emotional
and difficult time for them,
and we ask that every-
one respect their privacy."
Thompsorin aid. "All of us
in the Packers family\ share
in their grief."
It. was unclear whether
Joe Philbin will continue
to work with the team this
week. Coach Mike [\lcCar-
_hy told reporters Monday
that he has a contingency
plan if Philbin needs time
off but didn't 'elaborate.
Team spokesman Aaron
Popkey declined further
comment Tuesday.
Joe Philbin is in his ninth
year with the Packers, and
his fifth as offensive coor-
'dinator. He and his wife

offered contract extension

owners say Commissioner
Bud Selig will be offered
a contract extension at
this week's meetings in
Phoenix.
ESPN.com first reported
that -Selig will be offered
an additional term when
owners meet Wednesday
and Thursday in Scott-
sdale, Ariz. Two owners,
speaking on condition of
anonymity so as not to at-
tract criticism from Selig,
told The Associated Press
on Tuesday that a new
Term will be proposed.


Owners also intend to
approve the completion of
the sale of the San Diego
Padres from John Moores
to Jeff Moorad
Selig has been commis-
sioner since September
1992 and would surpass
Kenesaw Mountain Landis
for longest tenure in Sep-
tember 2016. Selig repeat-
edly has said he intends
to retire in December but
also admits almost no one
believes him.
Selig, who turns 78
in July, became acting
commissioner in
September 1992, when
clubs forced out Fay


Vincent. After saying he
wouldn't take the job,
Selig was elected to a five-
year term as permanent-
commissioner in 1998
and gave up running the
Milwaukee Brewers, the
-team he bought in 1970
and his family sold in
2005.
Owners voted in Novem-
ber 2001 to extend his term
through 2006, then voted
in August 2004 to extend
it through 2009. Although
he first said in 2006 that
he intended to retire at the
end of that term, in Janu-
ary 2008 he accepted an
extension through 2012.


Philbin didn't sound like,
he was any sort of distress,
police said.
About half-an-hour later.
a security guard at a busi-
ness along the river called
poulict to report he saw
a man in the i iver near a
section of thin ice about
30 yards from shore, call-
ing for help. Philbin never

Oakland joined this
season's Tampa Bay team
as two of the four teams to
allow at least 30 TD passes
and 5.0 yards per carry
in a season, a distinction
achieved previously by
only the 1950 Baltimore
Colts and 1952 Dallas
Texans. The Raiders also
became the sixth team
since the 1970 merger to
allow at least 2,000 yards
rushing and 4,000 yards
passing in a season.
McKenzie will now have
the opportunity to bring in
a whole new staff, overhaul
the roster and change
the scheme if he deems
necessary. The new coach
will be Oakland's seventh
in the past 10 seasons,
following Bill Callahan,
Norv Turner, Art Shell,
Lane Kiffin, Tom Cable and
Jackson.
McKenzie, who had
been director of football
operations in Green
Bay, is a former Raiders
linebacker. He was well-
respected for his role in
helping to build a Super
Bowl championship team
with the Packers.
